Bombs From Air Crafts  Th*-������ dropping of bombs from aircraft was first developed in the United States. Glenn H. Curtiss was the  first aviator to demonstrate how a  battleship might be bombarded from  this air. Before 1910 Curtiss startled  tho American navy department, and  those of Europe by dropping oranges  on a warships' deck. Carrying a load  of explosives in au aeroplane was in  itself dangerous, involving the possibility of an explosion in a rough  start of landing; dropping weights  above ten pounds during flight was  supposed to affect the equilibria . of  an aeroplane, and dropping of bomba  with any accuracy seemed impor.Bible.  Uut these limitations were removed in  .the characteristically speedy way in  which all limitations are removed in  aeronautics.  In March, 1012, at St. Louis, Tony  Jannus dropped Albert Borry, weighing  175 pounds,  from an aeroplane,  demonstrating    that    a  load    larga  enough to blow up a battleship could  bo dropped during flight   without endangering the life of the pilot. Later  In tho year the Micholin bomb-dropping contosts induced experiments at  bomb-dropping,    which    resulted    In  Lieutonant    Riloy    B.    Scott placing  twelve out of  fifteen  bombs  in  tho  turg ���������: and winning tho ,i;l0,000 prize.  Those demonstrations woro convincing, but llttlo attention was given to  them by military authorltlcu out-Jido  of IluHBia and Germany, whoro bomb-  dropping   contents were held. But individual Jnvcntoru and military men  continued    their    experiments,    and  there    worn    ovolved    device?*    and  bomb;-    which    collectively,    If   not  Kingly, could bo fwld to boIvo tho problem.

To make this longing easy  to satisfy a firm in Paris has just put  oil the market a clock that by pressing  a button is made to project a pictura-  of its face in a ray of light upon the  ceiling.  This clock, which looks like a young  cannon, stands upon a box containing  three dry batteries. Its mechanism is  in a metal"tube, at one end of which  is an ordinary dial. In the daytime  this end is'uppermost or foremost. But  when night comes you turn the cannon over on its trunnions so that the  reverse end is uppermost or foremost.  In the reverse end is a second dial,  of transparent glass, with the figures  reversed and running round its face  inversely, as do the hands. In front  of this a plain cover lens and behind it a small electric lamp attached  by wires to the batteries and by other  wires to a push-button.  This push-button can be placed under the pillow or upon a table beside  the bed. When one wants to see tho  time in the night one presses the button; this lights tho lamp, which projects upon the celling or upon the wall  a greatly magnified picture of its face,  so that one can lie comfortably in bed  and read the time at a glanoo. Another push of tho button extinguishes  the lamp.  The most obstinate corns and warts  fail to resist Holla'wuy's Corn Cure.  Try It.  Birthplace of Froissart .and Watteau  ^JoLh "Valenciennes^ anu.

The island which has., an area ot  only three-quarters of a square mile,  is looked upon as one of the most  treasured possessions of Germany.  , Since the Germans^ obtained possession of the island, enormous sums  have been spent upon fortifications,  and, so on, including $30,000,000 spent?  on protecting the coast from erosion.  Probably it will never be known  how many millions Germany has  spent in strengthening the place. But  it is known that a million- and a half  was spent in improving .the harbor  as an anchorage for torpedo craft.

The rivers swarm with crocodile, and there are numbers of hippopotami.  As regards Togo history, this only  extends back about thirty years, ,at  which time the Germans first .occupied the country. They found It In  possession of many different tribes,  all hostile to one another, the dominant tribe of the south-central region,  dwelling round about where Sokods  now is, helms** the Tsehaudjo.  These people were originally, a conquering tribe, like- the Masai and the  Zulus, and they swept down from the  north;.. somewhere about a hundred  years ago, devastating the country /as  they advanced. They came riding on;  horses, and as these animals had  never before been seen In Togoland,  the terror they inspired almost sufficed by itself to ensure the defeat of  the aboriginal owners of the soil.-".  When the Germans came up from  the south, a motley but brave and determined rabble, led by a certain freelance adventurer named ��������������������������� lC?r&ttn2,  they endured their first rdal check at  the hands of these wild horsemen.  .��������� Impressed by their fighting qualities, Kerstlng, following, In a small  way the example .act. by Corte***, ia  Mexico, and*.by Olive-In India, allied  himself with the uro���������or king���������qf the  Tsehaudjo, and, aided, by him, he  eventually subdued the whole country and. placed it under the* German  flag. The present uro, an old but  dignified and amiable savage named  DJoba, is the son of the man who  fought under Kerstlng'B banner.

They expect their goods-to sell  themselves. They never give the public? a chance to learn the brand or the  quality of the articles they. make.

Two hundred leet from the water  there stands a series of big gun batteries and armed turrets, au attempt  having been made to turn, the "island-  into a German Gibraltar. '  For purposes of protection, a cliff  of granite was built, so that now the  island to a large extent possesses  cliffs which are purely artificial. In  addition, hundreds of tons of cement  were used to strengthen the face of  the natural rock.  Most of the people depend for their  livelihood upon the lobster and other  fisheries, together with their harvest  from the summer visitors. They live  to long years, and have a-stheir native tongue the North.Frisian dialect.  In 1807 Great Britain obtained the  island from the Daned. When she  took possession of the island it was  the "jumping ground" of a horde of  smugglers, there being "practically no  room left on the island which was  free from kegs and human beings. Iu  1890 we gave the island to the Germans as their consideration for our  taking over Zanzibar and Pemba.  At the time of the bargain there  was great dissatisfaction shown in  each country. It was recognized by  many far-seeing men that so lor^-as  we possessed Heligoland the island  was in the position of a menace" to  Germany.  Those Germans who objected to the  bargain were sere that Germany did  not obtain a much larger territory;  even Bismarck said they had- exchanged a pair of trousers for a mere  button. It was then that the plateau  was fortified.--  Quite recently some of the most  massive guns produced by Krupps'  were placed there,   while   provisions  er*? are allowed to land only at points  within three miles of Annapolis, N.S.,  Woodstock, N.S./Lake Megan tic and  Hemmingford in Quebec; Athens,  Welland and Essex in Ontario; Morris, Manitoba; Estevan, Sask.; Leth-  bridge, Alberta;  and Chilliwack, B.C.  A Canadian officer must be carried  on any airship that lands in Canada  and no firearms, explosives or*- photographic equipment will be allowed on  board: Any military air craft in Canada must be the property of the Canadian government or Great Britain or  her allies. One reason for the strict  governmental regulation of airship'*'  is with a view to preventing any secret fitting out of airships by Germans  or Austrians in the United States with  a view to bombarding operations, or  scouting at fortified or military points  in Canada.  It is a remote, but possible danger.  When Kitchener Asks He Gsts Action  A story is going round about Lord  Kitchener's way of dealing with  officialism.

One  half of the party, headed by Sir Ernest Shackleton, departed for South  America, the pthef half of tho expedition left for Ross Sea, on the New  Zealand side of the Antarctic, by way  of Tasmania.

There is every indication that these  figures are being attained, if not surpassed in the big war in Europe.  When one considers the upkeep ot  the vast armies in th������ fighting-line  and engaged keeping-open communication to the base, the material needed to feed the rifle and big gun, and  the continuous need of equipment,  the  figures  quoted,   do  not    appear  gaged In the conflict.  But there is money to be made la  war, as in every business. Germany,  for instance, profited much from ths  Franco-German-war of 1870. -Her  war bill amounted to $450,000,000,  but -when peace proposals were  piade, Germany presented France  vith a bill of ?1.000s000,000. It got  every cent of it.  It was the great Bismarck who arranged the terms o������ the treaty, and  though he chuckled mightily at th������  idea of getting this huge sum from  the French for stopping the war, it  is said that he was sorry when he  saw how readily the French scraped  the amount together,, that he had not ���������  asked for double the amount! Germany had -previously squeeezd an indemnity of over ?40,0~00,oCO out ot /  her present ally, Austria, after hoa������  tilitles lasting only one month.  Other  war a very profitable business, notably Japan, who, after the war o������  1894-1895 with China, arising out  of the state of Korea, made the Chinese pay her an indemnity cf ?185,GQ0>  000. As the war cost Japan only $30,-  000,000, she made a profit of $155,000.-  UU0, in addition to which she gained  certain towns and" territories.  But japan gained little profit, froia  the -vt r with* Russian In 1904-05, in  spite of an indemnity of 1500,000,000,  which was demanded, for the cost of  that campaign to Japan alone waa  estimated at $600,000,000..  A eauntry which has never found  war profitable is Russia. Her encounter with Turkey in the 70's cost  her an enormous amount of money.  She would only have been a little out  of pocket if she had received tho  $250,000,000 indemnity which she asked for in her bill. Ultimately the  indemnity was cut down to $160,000,-  000 with which to pay her out-of- .  pocket expenses, of which sum Turkey up to the present time has paid  just" over half,' and there seems little likelihood that she will ever raise  ithe full amount  The cost of the. ;Russian-Japane,se  war was staggering.: "The campaign  lasted about 19 months, and alto-,  gether it is estimated that the com������f  bined expenses of Russia and Japan  amounted to no less than ?2,225,000,-  000. Tho loss to Japan's navy and  mercantile marine alone amounted  to $250,000,000..  This was the fourth campaign  upon which Russia had entered within threo-quarters of a century. The  first and second were with Turkey,  the former involving an expenditure  of $100,000,000 and tho loss of 120,000.  men. This was-in 1828, and twenty->  six years later came the Crimea, in  which France and England took a,  hand." The total cost of this terrible  war, was $1,565,000,000. England'*  biii'-alone amounted to' $390,000,000. ,,  The Napoleonic wars, which ended  with Waterloo, were comparatively  cheap for France, as the total bIL������  amounted only t> $1,250,000,000.  The present war will be as costly  a on j for both conqueror and vanquished. Already Germany is endeavoring to partly rocoup horoclf by lovy-  Ing enormous exactions on the cities  and towns occupied in the line of  march across Belgium. Whether the  suruB will bo paid before the invaders  aro driven back acrosw tho frontier is  another fltory.-r.ts it is possible that  the Belgians will not submit calmly,  to tlu exorbitant demanda made upon  ���������them by an enemy who has turned a-  beautiful country into ono of death  nnd devn������1ation. ,  But Germany is certainly laying  herself open to dreadful reprisals,  tor when this war Is over tho Indemnity to bo claimed from hor will bu  simply enormous. Groat Britain  never has dollboratoly sot about making money out of her wars in modem dnys, but she will' bo perfectly  justiflod in calling upon her onomiew  to meet the expenses they have wan*  tonly run her into.

One to  the effect  that *the government revoke that part of the Game  Act which  compels actual  settlers to  takeout licenses to trap or kill coyotes,   cougars, etc,, and if  feasible   to  amend the  act to permit  the   bona  fide settler to. hunt any sort of game  without a license���������to make up the deficit in   revenue such   a move  would  create it is suggested the  government  re-impose the  tax on coal  lands that  are nob beia<c developed,  The other resolution was a re-drarfc  of one submitted by the Penticton Institute, asking the government to en-,  large the parcel post business so as to  handle shipments . of fruit up to 25  pounds at a rate of 1 cent per pound;  Run  lines.

W. G. Littiejohn, J. Cook  J. Adhwd.J. Spratt and A. Duperry���������  was considered so satisfactory that  they were re-appointed for another  year.  In the matter of these annual resolutions the Creston Institute is corresponding with the other-institutes asking them'to'appoint resolutions committees forthwith, said committees  to frame: their various resolutions  at   as   curly,  a   date   us     possible  and mail them to the 'different- institutes; It is held that by adopting  this system the work, of the annual  convention resolutions committee  would bo simplified in that several Institutes would not be tiubinittiug the  Same legislation.

Hugh could not help laughing.  "Really.  Delia, you   are  altogether  ���������x. too  much  for  ordinary people:"    he  said.  "I have felt upset." she answered  moodily, her eyes on the ground and  yet giving him one swift side glance,  "ever since you left here: I have feit  so bored since. But how have you  come?" she" added quickly. "I heard  no wheels or anything."  "I came by train," he answered. "I  took the 2.52 from town and walked  over."  "All the way?" she asked quickly.  "Have you walked all that way in au  hour?"  "I wauted a walk," he said, "and 1  had a skirmish with a tramp on the  way into the bargain. Th**- fellow was  insolent, and I had to knock nim down  after which he cleared off at championship pace."  "Ah, you are a man," she said with  a deep sigh; "to walk six miles ia an  hour and light a tramp on the way���������"  "It is not much of a test of man-  huud," said Hugh with a laugh. "Couid  I see uncle if I went to the house?"  ���������You will itnd him in hid study,"  she answered, falling back In her  chair in her old, bored manner; "and  when he has sworn at you, and asked you for a number, you can come  bank to me and I will give you some  tea���������oh! and if you see .Tames anywhere, tell him I want lo speak to  him.'  "All right." said Hugh, thinking to  himself that if he were James, Delia  might continue to want to spealc io  him.  He went into the house, and making  his way to his uncle's study tapped  at the door. Tlier*e was no answer,  and so heturned the handle and entered. Mr. Hetherington, sitting at a  big writing table covered with papers  that had oveidowti on to the door,  looked up with an oath as the door  opened.  "You.   Hugh,"   he   growled.   "Well,  why are you not nt business?"-   He  huiid suddenly and pointed  for me: so���������-" and he made a-.gesture  towards the pile of - burning papers.  "Was it anything of  importance?"  asked Hugh.  * I don't know," answered Mr. HetU-  ���������eringtou, who, probably from the relaxing of the strain under which he  had been working, seemed inclined  to be much more communicative than  usual. "No, I don't know���������it niig.it  be and it might not. I advanced a  couple of hundred on it fifteen years  ago,* and I hardly thought of it again  till yesterday morning, when I was offered ������2,000 for it over the telephone." -  "And you refused?" asked Hugh,  wishing chances of receiving ������-2,-  000 would come to him so easily.  * Yes," returned the millioniare; "if  they had offered me the money I had  advanced on it I should probably havo  jumped at the chance; but such a high  bid made me suspect at once that  tnere was something in- the thing,  something;, that someone knew, and.  that this someone was trying to take;  advantage of me. And if there is  one thing that puts my rack up."  said Mr. Hetherington emp}ratied!iy:  "it is the feeling that someone is trying to take an unfair advantage of  me...'..If these people had been less  eager, and had made "a moderate offer, I should certainly have accepted.

'���������*;.  ^England was.a party to the creation of the new Kingdom of Belgium  in 1881, and was, therefore, morally  obligated to assist her to maintain her  independence, especially against a nation bound by treaty to respect it.  This is apart from England's traditional policy of encouragement and  help io weak nations fighting for liberty and a free government. How  much little Belgium has deserved  English support was demonstrated  ���������during the month of August. For three  precious weeks she stemmed the tide  of an army intended to crush Europe;  then when the military strategy of  the Allies required it she sacrificed  her beautiful Capitol as a pawn in the-  game of war. Such valor and self-  abnegation are jrare in history.  Then with respect to France, the  good feeling which has existed for  some years between the two nations  developed into an understanding  which, to an honorable nation; was  as binding as a treaty. So -confident  were the two nations of each other's  support, that England surrendered, in  a great measure to the, safe-keeping  of the French fleet, her interest in tho  Mediterranean, while France trusted  her western and northern shores to  the friendly vigilance of the Englinh  fleet. If'England had been the first to  feel the stroke of the enemy, no Breton has any-^doubts as to what the attitude of France would have been.  In these circumstances, both with  regard to Belgium and France, Great  Britain is at war because honor demands it. If she had made herself  a party to the "shameful -bargain proposed by Germany, she would n.ver  have recovered from the shame.  Now, as to the quetsion of the necessity of war for the protection of her  material interests, a glance at the  map of Europe will answer.- Great  Britain's total annual trade is nearly  seven billion dollars, one-third of  which is with Continental Europe. The  open door to this vast European tpade  is through Holland and Belgium. If  England had remained neutral, and  France found herself unable to drive  the Germans back into their own  country, these doors would, have been  closed. In addition to this blov- at  England's trade and prestige, Germany would have dominated Europe  . and whipped into ;.er ranks all the"  } weaker nations, as Napoleon did a  hundred years ago. Thus fortified  uermany would regard her nargain  with England as lightly as she .regarded her treat.* with Belgium, and  make fresh demands which, if complied with, would mean an end to"th<*  British empire.

"- Professor' Batesson'3 address on  "Kejusdity and -evolution" was a  direct attack ok the ^Darwinian theory  of evolution���������not on the great facts  of evolution themselves, but on Darwin's'' explanation of them.  ��������� "I suppose," lie said, "that everyone is familiar with the theory of the  I origin of species which Darwin promulgated. Through the last 50 years  theis theme of the natural selection, of  favored" races has been developed and  expounded in writings innumerable.  Favored races certainly can replace  others. " The argument is sound, but  'we are doubtful of its value; for in  that debate, stands adjourned."  The president thus offered no theory of auykind to replace the Darwinian explanation, but while destroying* it he paid a high tribute  to its propounder.  If they could not see how a fowl  gave rise to a chicken or how one  sweet pea produced another, they at  least could watch the system by  which the differences , between the  various kinds of fowls or between the  various kinds of sweet peas were dis  tiibuted among the offspring. *  The allotment of characteristics  .among offspring was accomplished  through a process of cell division in  which thes elements were sorted out.  What those elements were we did not  know, but it seen 2d to him unlikely  that they were material particles. He  suspected that their properties de-  penned on some method of arrangement.  Plants, fowls,- dogs, *horses, one's  own children exemplified this doctrine of segregation of the factors of  inheritance. The body of evidence  was now very large.  In place of what they now knew the  scope claimed for natural selection  must be greatly reduced. We went to  Darwin for his facts, but he no longer  spoke with philosophical authority.  The doctrine of the survival of the  fittest helped scarcely a������ all to account for the diversity orthe species.  There was .no proof that the .domestic _ animals had been developed  from a few wild types. Fowls presented insuperable difficulties as to  ancestry. Dogs, horses, cattle, sheep*  poultry, wheat, rice, oats, plums,  cherries had in turn been'accepted as  derived not from one but from several  uistiiict forms. !

American newsboy whose face, if  net bis name, is known to thousands  of^ people, including not a few dignitaries. "Pittsie" started almost two  years ago to walk--around the world,  taking his time doing it, and when  last heard from he was in Paris selling Ameriean newspapers to, tourists.  That was three weeks ago. He wrote  to a "newsie" in New York that be  expected to be back in this country in  August, but he has not yet appeared  on Broac.way and his whereabouts are  unknown. His friends, however, declare that "Pittsie" is well able to  take care of himself, as lie is resourceful and self-reliant and makes  friends everywhere he goes.  Young Ryan, who has sold papers  in most of the large cities__o������ the  United. Sttes, began his long: tour in  October, "1912, sailing from San Francisco with. only a pedestrian's pack  arid a Remington-rifled From-the~ Hawaiian Islands he went to Australia.  After walking across Australia he  took a boat to South Africa, and set  out on the long and difficult trancn  up the African continent -from Johannesburg to Cairo. He did Europe  a-foot -and reached Paris several  weeks ago. Fond of adventure, lie  doubtless was not greatly troubled by  the outbreak of war, but his hosts of  friends, nevertheless, are anxious for  news of "Pittsie" Ryan.

An Uncomfortable Night  Recently a resident of an inland  town invttie Dn,ited-States went:ou a  trip that" included an alJ.-nigh\ voyage on a steamboat. Accompanying  him was a nephew more accustomed  to'--the' ways, of travel.  "Wall, uncle," asked the nephew,  ���������meeting the old man on deck the  following morning, "did you have a  good night?"  "Can't say that I did," answered  uncle wearily. "When I-\ went.to my  rodni, I seen that card which tells ye  how to put on a hfo preserver, and  after that I didn't git much rest."  "I don't get you, uncle," wondering-  ly returned the young man. "What  had that to do with it?"  "Everything,* answeced the uncle.

A   Hone   For   British   Victory  . Of onerHhing we may be certain,  that while all Christendom will have  to share the burden of distress it is  upon Germany that the larger part  will fall in useful lives extinguish.e^?  in fianancial misery, idle shipping,  closed factories.  That this is ail due td~the insane  growth of armies and navies stimulated, yes, necessitated by" Germany's  practice, no one can deny! This war  is not a bolt out of the blue. It has  long been recognised as unavoidable  and- it bears the earmarks of deliberate planning. Nothing was lacking hut  a goocT excuse." And this excuse has  been found, or manufactured, as you  please. It is right that Germany  should "pay heaviest.  Let us hope the plea for bloated  armaments as essential to national  safety-may never again be heard. We  now perceive what they-lead to. And  let us hope that victory may rest with  the British who, as a hundred .-ears  ago, ar? fighting in the" cause of human progress and world-wide peace  against the tyranny of personal, arbitrary government.-���������"A Naval Officer" in the New York Independent.  To  Circumvent Order  on  All  Goods  Tho government has ascertained  that an effort is being made by Unit-  od States agents of Gorman exporters  to contlr.'ie stiles of German and Austrian, goods in Canada, thus circumventing the ordor-In-council prohibiting trade with the couutr.y\. enemies.  A largo number of circulars have  boon sont to Canadian merchants by  United States importers of Gorm"an  and Austrian goods, offering to supply those goods in Canada.  Hon. J. D. Rold, minister of customs, said that effective action would  bo taken to prevent any such contra-)  vehtloii of tho Bpirlt of tho ordor-Iu  council regarding trade with the en  omy.

"We then started for Switzerland," she said, "but at Lindau, on the  Lake of Constance, we were "ordered  to git out and detained in the railway  station refreshment room. That was  Friday, August 14. We were detained in the refreshment room for eight  hours. Seven other British subjects  were with us.

There are two ways usually adopts  ed in trying  to cure indigestion or  stomach trouble���������one the wrong way  by using, purgatives and  the    other  drugs  which only act    locally    and  which in the long run* causes more  distress by ���������weakening the whole~sys-  tem.    The other*'way add the right  way is the Dr. Williams' manner of  treatment���������that  is  to  nourish    and  build up that stomach by supplying  plenty of new, rich, red blood. Give the  stomach   this much needed supply of  new blood and i.istress will disappear  and stay banished forever.   The new  blood strengthens the nerves, of tha -  stomach' and gives it the necessary  f power "to digest food.   Thousands bear  witness to the value of the Dr. Williams'  treatment  through  the   blood.  Among them is the Rev. P. D. Nowlane  of Summerville, -N.S.,  who says:   "I  certainly have great reason to recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, as they  were the means of-saving my life. Till  I reached the age of thirty I never  knew what pain or sickness meant,  but after that my stomach failed me  and   food of any kind caused untold  distress.    I  became  constipated and.  was forced to use injections    daily.  This went on for about two years; ������  grew weaker and weaker; my weight  fell off from 185 to 125 pounds; i had  a hacking cough and appeared to be  going into a decline.   All this time i  was being treated by the best of doctors '5Ut without the  least    benefit.  Night after night I could get no sieen  the pain and agony was so severe. On  consultation the doctors decided I was  suffering from cancer of the stomach  and advised an operation as a meais  of saving my life.   This I refused to*  .undergo and began to look_forwar������. fte>  an early death,   j ust then a friend advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills." I had no faith ia any "medicine  and   at   arst  refused,   but  m*y  friend was so persistent that finally  I gave in and purchased half a dozen  boxes.   By the time these were gone  I felt much stronger and the distress  was not so severe.   I continued their  use and each succeeding box wrought  a marked improvement in my condition   till   by the time I had taken a  dozen boxes every pain and ache had  left me;  my strength increased; my .  wel-sut was back where it was be*ore  I was ill; I had a good appetite and  ^was completely cured.   In   the years  that    have elapsed since I used the  Pills not a twinge of the trouble has  returned.    To me Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills    are  the greatest medicine on  earth and I never lose an opportunity  in recommending them to other sufferers, for I feel that were it not for  their use I would have been in my  grave lpng ago."  What Dr. wUHams' Pink Pills did  for Rev. Mr. Nowlan they have done  for thousands, of others and will do  for you if ailing. They not only cure  eases of stomach trouble, but rheumatism, partial paralysis, heart palpitation, St. Vitus dance and all other  troubles that have their origin in a  bad condition of the blood and nerves.
