The local exhibition of farm  products was cancelled at a late  moment, but we understand that  an effort will be made to hold a  small exhibition on October30th,  which date is the anniversary of  the landing of the Norwegian  colonists in Bella Coola.  Shushartie Bay  (FROM OUR RESIDENT CORRESPONDENT)  The annual fair- at Cape Scott  was held on Friday, September  18th.    The weather was not all  that   could   be   desired,   a  few  heavy showers   falling   in   the  early part of the day; but this  condition in no way affected the  success of the occasion.    The exhibits were all of a very high  order and came from all parts of  the North Island.    Such an array  was  very gratifying,  showing,  as it did, the remarkable results  attained    by    the    neighboring-  farmers in the cultivation of garden   stuff.      Among the prizewinners were Messrs. T. Wadey  and F. Fingley in the bachelors  competition for the best loaf of  bread.    In the needlework competition Miss Sybil Bragg won  the first prize with an excellent  piece of fabric.    The number of  ladies at the ensuing soiree proved a very attractive feature; they  included the Misses Dolly Bragg.  Gwen   Pearce,   E.   Cox  and   L.  Vick.    Miss Wadey and Miss D.  McQueen.    Mrs. Smeltikoff gave  some  very pleasing recitations  and Mrs. McQueen sang one or  two delightful songs.    Mr. Webber, assisted by Mr. G. Bassett,  provided music lively or 'dreamy'  as  suited  the   number   on   the  dance program; the floor was in  excellent condition.   Altogether,  the evening progressed with a  decided elan.    Before the close  a collection was   made  for the  war fund.  Mr. M. Manson, M. P. P., in  company with Mr. Clements, the  Dominion representative, visited  Shushartie Bay on Wednesday  the 23rd ult.

Britain's Food Supply.  The great,, and perhaps natural, fear that should Great Britain become involved in a European war her populace would  soon be feeling the pangs of  hunger has been effectively expelled by the4 present struggle.  Her stores of food-stuffs are  much above the average. Imports of grain have been largely  in excess of normal because so  many continental ports have  been closed. ?Up to the present  time forty-eight cargoes of grain  destined for continental ports  have been landed in England.  The ocean tracks to Canada  and the United States are now  open and a regular steamer service between tArchangel on the  White Sea and London has been  established, which will enable  Russia to continue her shipments  of butter ana%eggs to England.  The stocks of meat in London  warehouses at the present time  are estimated, to be 60 per cent,  above the average. The wheat,  maize, and barley stocks are 150  per cent., 200- per cent, and 600  per cent., respectively, above  the average.  More than 6,000,000 gallons of  petroleum, not intended for England, found their way there because of the closing of continental ports. >  So long as Great Britain has  her great navy and her Dominions over-seas, she will never be  brought to face starvation.  o     o     o     o     o  The Science"of Death-Dealing.  In the past, war has been sufficiently prodigal in its squandering of life and gold, but until  recent times the science of death-  dealing was scarcely out of its  cradle. During the last generation the science of warfare has  been so revolutionized as to remove it as far from the day of  Sedan as Sedan was removed  from Agincourt.  An expert states that the artillery of today is at least 116 times  more deadly than   that   which  slaughtered thousands at Sedan  and Gravelotte. For example,  in 1870 shrapnel fire only scattered 37 death-dealing missiles.  Now it scatters 340. Forty years  ago, a bomb weighing 70 pounds  burst into 42 fragments. Today,  when charged with peroxilene,  it breaks up into 1200 pieces. It  is estimated that such a bomb  would effectually destroy every  living thing within a radius of  200 yards of,.the, point of' explosion. So terrible in its power of  slaughter is the modern cannon  that, if a body of 10,000 had to  traverse a mile and a half under  fire from a single battery, they  would be exposed to 1450 rounds  before they could cross .the" zone'  of fire. The bursting of the shells  from that single battery would  scatter 275,000 bullets (more  than 27 for each man) over the  area through which the men  must pass.  The modern rifle has a range  of two to three miles, and such  power of penetration that its  bullet will easily pass through a  dozen men before its force is  spent. "Such, too, is its speed of  flight that there is no longer any  need to sight the gun so as to  drop your bullet at any particular range. You aim straight at  your object and the bullet goes  straight to its mark. Today, the  soldier can fire twelve times as  many shots per. minute as he was  able to do a generation ago. As  recently as the Russo-Turkish  war a soldier could only carry 84  cartridges into action; now he  can carry, roughly, four times  that number without adding to  his burden.  o    o    o    o     o  An Elaborate System Which  Failed.  >..  .   ��������� i.  As remarkable as the German  invasion of France has been the  absolute lack of success of the  elaborate German secret service  system. In anticipation of the  war which she intended to make,  and 'the day' when she should  start upon her campaign to become the ruling nation of the  world, Germany has for many  years maintained a most complete system for the collecting  of information respecting the  positions and military strength  of other nations. She has had  secret agents in every country  in the world. There have been  hordes of them In England, in  Ireland, in Canada, in British  South Africa, in India, and elsewhere throughout the Empire.  It has been practically admitted, through , German threats  and boasts, that it was upon information supplied by the secret  emissaries, these men who for  years have been spying upon us,  watching our every move, that  Germany chose the present time  to launch her long cherished  campaign. Her secret agents  said that Ireland, was on the,  verge of open rebellion^ only  awaiting an opportunity to throw  off the English "yoke." Canada  was represented as being anxious  to break ties with the Empire  and declare her independence,  or to attach herself to the United  States. 7 Spies in India said it  would be an easy task to stir up  rebellion there, while in South  Africa the Boers were expected  to side against Great Britain.  How miserably these spies  have failed in their task, and  what a hornet's nest they have  brought about the ears of their  "Fatherland.'';  We of Britain can hardly understand how such a mistaken  calculation of our loyalty could  have been made.  The secret of the great mistake  lay in the fact that, unaccustomed to freedom himself, the]  German secret agent no doubt  took our guarrelsome party efforts to still further improve our  system as indicating that we  were being suppressed and burdened with a yoke. He could  not understand that it was our  very liberty which permitted  these efforts on our part.  This mistake was, after all,  perhaps only a natural one.. But  it will prove a costly one for  Germany. Her knowledge of  the benefit of British freedom  will be dearly purchased.  o     o     o     o     o  "Exterminate the Treacherous British."  A Royal and Imperial  Command.  "It is my Royal and Imperial  command that you concentrate  all your energies for the immediate present, upon one single  purpose.    You are to address all  your skill and all the valor of my  soldiers to exterminate the  treacherous English and walk  over General French's contemptible little army. Wilhelm.  Army Headquarters, Aix la Chap-  pelle.    August 19, 1914."  This order will be read with a  thrill of .pride by every Britisher  the world over.   It is gratifying  to  know  that the Kaiser considered the "contemptible" little  British army of such importance  that it must be wiped out at any  cost and "without delay."   It is  pleasing to; see how he recognized that it would certainly require all the skill'and- valor of  his troops to effect the purpose.  How these orders were carried  out will  e^er form one of the  brightest pages in the history of  British armk    Instead of being  wiped out the  "contemptible"  little British army seems to have  done   considerable   wiping   out  among the flower of the Kaiser's  army.    The Germans themselves  have borne tribute to the British  soldier.   The British Tommy has  ways of his own which the Germans cannot understand.     He  will   emerge   from   a   bayonet  charge and  presently   may -be  met whistling himself off down  the road to  some other  point  where his services are required.  "Whistle?" wrote one bewildered  German.   These British fellows  whistle whether they give us the  bayonet  or , the   water   bottle.  They are such cheerful devils."  The   Kaiser's troops,  over a  quarter million strong, were ordered to wipe out Gen. French's  contemptible little army.     We  know how they hurled reinforcement after reinforcement at the  thin line of khaki clad men and  we know with what disastrous  results to themselves.    We know  how   that -little   British   army  saved France, and how the German horde has today the poor  satisfaction of still being opposed  by the same troops, undismayed,  themselves   doing   the   greater  part of the wiping out process.  As the 'Kaiser miscalculated  the strength of the resistance  from the Belgians, so he did  with the British and both are  costing bim dearly.  14  ilut  The Bank of British North America  Savings  Depa  Accounts opened for amounts  of $1 and upwards, and may he  opened in two names so that  JftlTient either or survivor may withdraw the amount.

"No matter how long the campaign and how great the sacrifice it may entail, we know that  the true and lasting interests of  the toilers and wage earners in  Germany can only be served by  the victory of the Allied armies.  "The Kaiser, having ruined the  innocent and deceived Belgium,  is now despoiling France and  drenching the land with the  blood of his victims.  "It must, therefore, be plain  to all honest men, without distinction of race or creed or party,  that there can be no settlement  of the existing disruptions, no  lasting peace or security for the  rights of man and no protection  of democracy from brigandage  and death until the Imperial  domination of Prussia within  Germany is crushed, disarmed  and swept away forever.  "Then, and then only, will  Bavaria, Wurtemburg, Saxony'  and Hanover be rescued and  Poland liberated from the grip  of the Monarch who, by his conduct, has forfeited the allegiance  of his subjects, and by his boasted defiance of all international  treaties and conventions, has  embarked on a career of crime  unparrelleled in ancient or modern history."  This appeal is signed by Karl  Bernstein, Emil Gott, Franz  Gaussen, Jacob Mamelsdorff,  Gustav Ochs and Ernest Schuster.  A majority of our American  cousins now figure that did Germany have any chance of emerging from the present struggle  successful they would have to  exchange one shop-worn Monroe  doctrine for about two hundred  assorted battle craft. And this  in spite of the efforts of pro-German papers in the States to picture Germany as the friend of  freedom and culture.��������� Ottawa  Journal.

Men count war in terms of  blood and treasure and believe  theirs the greater sacrifice.  Women know that for every man  who stops a bullet some women  took a chance with death.  a cz3  iIS  \JkTHAT person so happy and contented as the prosperous farmer?  WHAT person so independent?  \117HAT ambition more noble than to  be a producer of  the necessaries  of life?  Bella  Coola   farmers are independent,  they are strangers to hard times.  HTHE REASONS for this  enviable  condi-  ���������*���������   dition 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.  ^  h  The tea without a  disappointment-  Ramsay Bros. & Co.

Twenty  stations  have  been erected recently on   the main line of the  Transcontinental in the province  of British Columbia.     Development has been very rapid in this  territory,  settlers coming in as  soon as the steel was laid.   These  new station buildings, which are  modern in every respect, include  Lohgworth, Dewey, Lindup, Al-  eza Lake, Hansard, Urling, Hut-  ton, Nowlands, Guildford, Foreman, Crescent Island, Legrand,  Giscome,   Bond,   Roonoy,   Rainbow, Willow River, Knole, and  Sholloy.    Hotel accommodation  is also being provided by private  enterprise at the more important  points along the line.
