The general  gjyagreement is that the situation  "both around Warsaw and Riga  has become, menacing' and that  it-will be impossible to save Warsaw.    The latest news according  to some of the -newspapers sug-  'jffiMfr gests that the German entry in-  ������*^* to  the  Polish   capital  will   not  -much longer be delayed.

President Wilson has given  Lansing unlimited power in  dealing with the situation.  ���������  Supplies for France  Texas,   Aug.   5.  Galveston,  1000 horses, 20,000 cattle, and  50,000 tons of hay are to be shipped to France by October 1.  Italians Annihilate  Crack Regiment  Turin, August 4.-- The Austrian emperor's crack regiment the  Kaiser jaegers, were nearly annihilated August 1, on the Carso  plateau. The flower of the Austrian army was hurled against  the Italian right wing in a determined effort to recapture Mount  Seibusi, which dominates the  plain. The Austrians faced the  guns with magnificent courage,  but were mowed down mercilessly almost to the last man.  Turks Less Aggressive in Dardanelles  London, Aug. 6.���������The situation in the Dardanelles on the  front held by the Australian  troops is excellent, although  there has been continuous heavy  fighting according to the British  press representative on the Gal-  lipoli Peninsula, he says: "The  Turks, since their last repulse,  have shown much less aggressiveness, seemingly more content  to sit in the trenches than to attempt an offensive movement.  Bomb throwing and mining are  now the chief methods of warfare. The troops being kept occupied constantly in the building  of trenches, which fall away  rapidly owing to the soft sandy  soil.* Heavy Turkish reinforcements are being brought into  advanced positions, showing that  the Turks realize the importance  of holding back any further attempts of the Allies to encroach  on the peninsula.  Troops Covering  Warsaw Retire  Petrograd, Aug. 5, via London,  Aug. 6.���������Official communication.  "In view of the conditions and  general situation our troops west  of Warsaw have received orders  to fall back on the right bank of  the Vistula. According to reports received, this order was  carried out and the troops which  were covering Warsaw retired  at 5 o'clock this (Thursday)  morning without being attacked  toward the new front assigned  to them. They blew up behind  them all the bridges over the  Vistula."

New York, August 5. -During  the last few days there have been  persistent rumors to the effect  that Germany was seeking to  purchase American ammunition  making plants, not so much on  account of any shortage of ammunition for its own armies, as  with a view to putting an end to  the tremendous shipments which  are going forward to the Allies.  The Remington Anns-Union  Metallic Cartridge Company and  the Bethlehem Steel Company  have both been specifically named  as objective points of the German efforts.  Mr. Samuel V. Pryor, vice-  president and general manager  of the Remington-Arms-Union  Metallic Cartridge Company,  says that no amount of money  which anybody might offer,  would induce the owner's to dispose of the plants.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  Our special correspondent  attends a wedding.  Beautifully decorated for. the  occasion by lady friends of the  bride, was the home of Mr. and  Mrs. A. C. Christenson, where a  pretty wedding took place last  Saturday evening, when Mr.  Evan Oien was united in marriage to Miss Mary Mitchell of  Hagensborg.  The bride, wearing a white  wedding dress adorned with  orange blossoms and carrying a  shower bouquet of bridal roses,  was attended by Miss Louise  Schulstad, gowned i n white,  carrying a bunch of pink flowers.  The groom was attended by Mr.  W. H. MacKay. Rev. T. C. Col-  well was the officiating clergyman and Miss Ruth Nordschow  presided at the piano.  The house was filled to an  overflow of invited guests who  gathered to do honor to the bride  and groom, and after the ceremony was over partook of a  sumptuous-wedding lunch. The  happy couple left on the Sunday  morning steamer for Takush  Harbor.  The Courier joins' with their  many Bella Coola friends in wishing thern a happy married life.  S. S.

Walter Ratcliff, after the,completion of the work on the wagon  road at Stewy, of which he has  been the foreman, came to town  last week on business.  The fishing for sockeye salmon  came to an end last Monday. We  regret to state that it did not  prove as good as expected at the  beginning of the season. The  fishermen will now enjoy a rest  from their labors for about two  weeks when they will begin  catching cohoes.  The run of sockeye salmon at  Kimsquit was almost a total  failure. The fishermen in some  instances have not caught sufficient salmon to bring them out  of debt at the company's store.  Mr. B. Norton, our photographer, in his peaceable pursuit of  views, has on several occasions  this summer met bruin in his  native fastnesses. The bear  seems disinclined to have his  picture taken, as he goes into  hiding as soon as Mr. Norton  approaches.

SATURDAY,  AUG. 7, 1915.  The Gun Fund.  , " As long as the war is carried  on the most vital thing to be done  is to carry on the fight so that we  may win. Everything that we  do- in these times .should have  this supreme object in view.. It  is a life and death struggle for  freedom and the sooner we realize this the better for us.  We will never conquer our enemy unless we have as many and  as well equipped men as he.    It  is no use for us to rely on the  soldiers of. the Allies showing  mdre bravery and more endurance than/ the foe..   - In these.  qualities, which make for good  soldiers, all the forces engaged  in the war may, for*all .practical  purposes, be regarded as equal  irrespective of nationality.  We may rely on being able to  outnumber our foe in the long  Conserve the Food Supply.  The season for the fishing of  sockeyes is now over and it has  proved to be very poor as compared with former years, both  here and at Kimsquit.  After many years experience  in the cannery.business at Bella  Coola the manager of the local  cannery expresses the belief that  the run of .sockeye salmon in this  inlet is diminishing and that in  a few years it will have, ceased  almost altogether.     .  This is certainly a situation  that is not' very cheering either  as to this place or the province,  and it seems to us that a remedy  ought to be found.'  Great amounts, of money are  being spent every year for salaries toT'officials whose sole ��������� business it is  to devise means by  whichsuch a state of affairs can  be avoided; but as'far as it can  be learned,   nothing   has   been  done for the conservation of the  salmon at this particular place,,  beyond   the   patrolling  of ' the  grounds to enforce the observance of the close season and the  spasmodic clearing of obstructions from the streams to facilitate the passing of the salmon..  These remedies have'proved insufficient to prevent the depletion  of the salmon.  It ought not.to need a great  many highly salaried officials to  supervise that sort of work. But  yet we have several such, both  JjAlNS NO  but also put their theories into  practice.  - We certainly own to being impatient with the dilatoriness of  the powers that be in setting  forces in motion to promote the  welfare of the land. \ Hatcheries  ought to built at the head of all  o  the fishing grounds.    The enemies of the salmon should  be  bunted and destroyed, and not  protected as is the case now.   It  is not likely that this article will  be  read, -much less heeded  by  those whose duty it should be to  remedythe evil pointed out; but  we would submit to those injured  by this state of affairs, such as  the cannery operators and fishermen, to  unite in  a petition or  some other action by which pressure be brought to bear on the  proper authorities to induce them  to take steps  to conserve this  important   industry   and   food  supply.  run,   but   even   overwhelming  superiority in numbers is of little Provincial and Dominion, there-  avail if our equipment is inferior  Heretofore our forces have not  had equipment as good as the  enemy, and that being the case  it is only a delusion or a reliance  on some happy turn of affairs to  believe that we shall be able to  win in any reasonable length of  time.    And the longer the war is  prolonged, the more men will be  killed and disabled.     If we are  going to be  successful  in this  fight against great odds, such as  superior munitions of  war,  we  all  must do   our  "little   bit.  . Some authorities suggest 'it must  be a war of attrition or exhaustion; a war that will wear out  the enemy; but that is a rule that  will work both ways.  It is imperatively our duty to  give our soldiers the most modern  and efficient weapons, and in this  war they have been found to be  artillery and machine guns.   We  are glad to note that all Canada  is roused on this subject.    Communities throughout the Dominion are at work collecting money  ���������for   the   purchase   of   machine  gans.    Remember this; the Germans have four times as many as  the Allies, i Therefore a great  many machine guns must be furnished our soldiers.  Bella Coola cannot be behindhand in doing its duty. Weought  to furnish one machine gun, and  we can easily do it if we all join  in. Our experience with the spirit  of Bella Coola warrants us in believing that this will be done in  suits of whose activities are not  discernable to the naked eye.  After ostensibly studying the  salmon for a great number of  years they should .by this time  have discovered means of destroying its enemies and otherwise devised plans for the conservation of this valuable food  fish; and not only devise means,  The Fair at Prince Rupert.  Every resident and property  owner in Northern British Columbia should .take active interest in the Exhibition to be held'  at Prince Rupert, September 22,'  23 and 24.    It is a fact which no  one will dispute that the northern  part of our province is yet in its  infancy as far as development is  concerned.    It is further conceded that the district contains immense wealth, that awaits the  hands and brains of. the intelligent and industrous to become  available for the use of man kin d.  But these resources will be dormant unless/the attention of the  world is called to them.     And  right. here is where the exhibi-  tion at Prince Rupert becomes a  factor of great value to the district. It will demonstrate beyond dispute what the country  contains and what it can produce  and thus advertise its resources.  The management deserves  credit for the courage and energy  it displays in endeavoring to  make the exhibition attractive  and representative of our varied  resources, and it should be our  duty to co-operate in this work  and it will be found that this  work shall not be in vain, but  will be well rewarded.  The district's chief sources of  wealth, such as agriculture, mining and  fisheries,   will   be the  prominent features of the fair;  but there will also be  various  other attractions in the way of  sports and  contests, and those  who are so fortunate as to be  able to witness all and take part,  will find it time well spent.    We  call attention to the fair at this  time because it is very desirable  that Bella Coola should be well  represented in its exhibits.  Bella Coola can boast of soil  and climatic conditions unsurpassed in the district and probably in the province, and should  not be afraid to send her products in comparison to those of  other communities, and former  experience has proven that Bella  Coola can carry off her share.,of  prizes.  We again call the attention of  the executive of the Farmers'.  Institute to this matter for its-  earliest consideration.    A survey  of the crops of the valley should'  be made,  and the  farmers encouraged and aided  in  making'  selections of cereals, fruit, roots  and potatoes* for exhibition purposes.

British Columbia in her  pride and exuberance of youthful'spirit had been willing to  pursue the administration of her  affairs in a less spectacular manner, we believe she could at the  present time been put of debt,  and snapped her fingers, so to  speak, at the money markets of  the world.  It is to be hoped that the approaching provincial election^will  bring men to the helm that will  have the courage, ability and  patriotism to so cut down the  expenditures that they will be  within the income.

PECK & CO., LTD.  VANCOUVER  -i  Always have  Nabob  Jelly  Powder  Lest We Forget.  On the fourth of this month  it was one year since Great Britain declared war on Germany.  It was conceived the properthing  to commemorate this great event  by public demonstrations in every  village, town and city throughout  the Empire. In order to give  effect to a movement for such  purpose a committee was organized in London, with such men  as Premier Asquith, Lord Rose-  berry and Mr. Arthur Balfour at  its head.  Bella Coola although as patri  otic as any other community ir.  the Empire did not recognize the  day by any public function.  It is well, however, to recapitulate the immediate events that  led up to the war lest we forget.  Prmzip's crime was committed  on June 28.     An  investigation  disclosed what was alleged to be  proof that the assassin was the  tool of a group of Serbians.    On  July 23, after considerable correspondence   and   negotiations,  an ultimatum was sent to Serbia  by the Austro-Hungarian .government-   The terms of this ultimatum were intolerable to the  self respect of an independent  state, but on the advice of Russia, Serbia went so far as to accept in their entirety all but one  of the Austrian   demands, this  being    that   Austrian    officials  should  be given  a part in the  Serbian internal administration  of justice and  police.      Serbia  further offered  to submit this  last demand to arbitration.    It  is now known that on July 24,  Germany began a secret mobilization of herforces.  Russia sought  to come to an understanding with-  Austria, but Berlin stood resolutely in the way of a peaceful  settlement, and beyond question  was determined to make of the  petty Serbian affair an excuse  for a general war of agression.  Austria mobilized, avowedly  against Serbia, but on a scale  that roused the suspicion of Russia, who then mobilized only those  military districts contiguous to  the Austrian frontier, giving  Berlin assurances to that effect.  Nevertheless, Germany seized  the pretext to declare war on  Russia. The news of that event j  was followed in a few hours by  the announcement that a general  mobilization had been ordered by  the French cabinet.  On August 2, German troops  entered Luxembourg, and Germany demanded free passage  through Belgium to the French  frontier. This was refused, and  two days later Great Britain dispatched to Germany an ultimatum demanding that the neutrality of Belgium be maintained.  The ultimatum rejected, German  forces attacked Liege, and as  early as August 2, German troops  had crossed both the Belgian and  French frontiers.  The following day saw the declaration by Great Britain of a  state of war with Germany, and  two days later the French invaded southern Alsace.

Great Disasters.   ,  The tragedy of this war is so  great that what in other times  would be called overwhelming  ealamaties sink into insignificance in comparison.

What the War Office doesn't  know about advertising for recruits can be learned in a railway  journey in South London. At  the back of his house, where  trains are passing all day long,  a resident has hung up two old  petticoats. Apparently this advertising expert feels that he has  done his bit, for accompanying  the petticoats is this startling  announcement: "If you won't  help your King and country now  you had better wear these."  3E  TheMason & RischPl  tano  of to-day will make plain our  prioilcge lo state with authority:  "NO  FINER   PIANO  MADE!"

Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent',  they are strangers to hard times.  "THE REASONS for this enviable cohdi-  ���������*- 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.  T>ELLA COOLA and the surrounding  "���������"^ country possesses wonderful wealth  in timber, as yet almost entirely undeveloped, and perhaps at no other point  on the Northern Coast is there the same  opportunity for a remunerative investment as in a saw mill at Bella Coola.  ]  c 1  The  Best Known and  Popular  Lubricant for  Motor Boats  Its use assures freedom from Carbon deposit  on valves, spark plugs, or in cylinders  IMPERIAL OIL CO.

Isolation of Crops.  Following details of the rotations that are outlined is a summary of the characteristics common to all:  Grain fields are always seeded  down with clover, even though  it be only used as a fertilizer.  . Grass and clover seedings are  heavy. Increased crops of hay  and rare failures of a catch have  justified'them.  - Hoed crops form a large proportion of every rotation. An  attempt to farm a small area  without a hoed crop was not successful. Weeds could not readily  be kept in jcheck.  No field is left in hay for more  than two successive years. The  records show that the crop almost always costs more per ton  than the first, and that succeeding crops are liable to be produced at a loss.  Barnyard manure is preferably  applied lYcquenUy in' comparatively small quantities, rather  than at long intervals in large  quantities.  Government Experimental Plot  at Bella Coola.  A. H.

For early turnips do not sow on  recently manured land or where  similar roots have been raised  the season before. To escape  the fly, sow late turnips, etc.,  after middle of June. Lime,  freshly slacked, and nitrate of  soda used at seeding time and  once or twice later will protect  the crops from the fly and grubs.  Frequent waterings of soapy  water containing a table-spoonful of coal oil or carbolic will also  prevent trouble. For further  remedies see spray .calendar.  At the plot some splendid onions, spring sown, were seen.  Gregory's strain of yellow Dan-  ver doing well. Theredstooare  good. Only a few scallions(big  necks) exist. The small plot of  onions which is being utilized for  seed looks promising. Every  farmer should aim at saving his  own seed if the strain is good,  see note on saving seed.  For dwarf peas the varieties,  viz: English and American wonder, sent from the experimental  farm at Ottawa, are doing well  ���������being very dwarf���������no supports  are needed and giving splendid  crops. These sorts are recommended to farmers.  Corn. This is a crop which  Bella Coola farmers have become  most interested in. Last year  off the plot, Golden Nugget,  Squaw and Malcolm did exceed-  c  ingly well.   Mr. Hammer, secretary of the Farmers' Institute,  had splendid success with Squaw  variety.-   Thisseason/manynew  varieties are.being tried at the  plot.    Whilst most farmers are  growing corn.-   At present we  find, as well as -last year's successful varieties, Red Squaw (C.  E. F., Ottawa,) promising a good  yield.'  Farmers, save your earliest and best cods for seed !   At  the plot we are not having best  results from our own saved seed,  but Mr.  Hammer is, however,  with his.    We  must stay with  this.    Later on, no doubt, local  saved seed will give best results.  Grasses.      Experiments  here  show us that the popular variety,  Timothy,  is   most   successful.  Whilsc for the   heavier lands,  Meadow Fescue,  Cocksfoot, Indian Rye, do well.    For dry or  light  soils the Bromus inermis  does the, best, giving splendid  yields of hay. It is a very tenacious variety. The Japanese  millet on the plot is growing  nicely, but needs to be sown  early for best results.  Clovers. Red, Alsike, White  Dutch and the^Crimson (annual)  varieties have ^11 done well. The  first three came through the  winter in fine condition. It is  wise to leave a good aftermath  for-winter protection. Tn'some  parts of the valley red clover has  been killed put.���������'���������' This crop needs  to be grown on well-drained land  for best results.  FARMERS SAVING THEIR  OWN SEED.  Hitherto much of our farm  seeds come from Europe. This  war causes us to look to our own  immediate resources for the  future supply of farm seeds.  Every farmer who has a good  strain of roots, vegetables, grass  or potatoes, should endeavor to  select certain specimens for seed  and continue to plant and select  from the same. Annual varieties  as peas, Leans, etc., seed must  be'harvested the first year.  Biennials as carrots, turnips,  mangolds are harvested the second. Thus the roots must be  taken up carefully, not broken  and the foliage not cut too closely. Roots must be stored away  from frost and planted the following spring in good soil. The  seed must be. harvested when  ripe and stored away, from mice  and. dampness.  THE FARMERS AIM.  These days,bring Canadian farmers and citizens generally to  the point of making the best use  of the land in increasing the  quantity of produce. Canada  must soon reach the stage when  all possible products must be  grown at home and not imported.  This may be furthered by farmers co-operating, using the Institute as a "means in growing, buying, selling and marketing.  During the forthcoming winter  months I hope again to take up  these matters with the members  of the Farmers' Institute and endeavor to arrive at some definite  policy. Bella Coola has the  people and the land" to bring  about results in agriculture which  should be worth while.
