In answering this question before the  Canadian Seed Growers*  association,  Professor '  S.   B.

The Pupils' Progress club idea,������ - *-!>i  which has had such a great development   in the United States, is taking  hold in Canada as well.

The original name of the  company was the _$rit*sli "American  Express, established in the early '50's,  when it operated stag������ lines during  the winter months, supplementing  these with steamboat connections during the months when water navigation  was possible. ������������������:-,.������������������  The Canadian Express is therefore,  actually older than the Grand Trunk  System, on which it operates today,  although the..'j^rand Trunk was the  second railway opened on tinscontin-'  6nt. .As early as 1858 a branch office had been opened in Liverpool, and  for many years .this was the only express company with headquarters in  America having offices in Great Britain. Today, with European headquarters at 17 Cockspur street, London-, it  has branch agencies at Liverpool,  Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow  and Antwerp; With thousands of employees, 9,676 miles of railway lines  and inland water routes are served,  Grand Trunk, the Grand /Trunk  Pacific, the Canadian government  railways, and the Central Vermont.

But Hugh, after  staring* at   *"���������J   m���������'-      i1"*     ^���������-'     m���������1-  him for a moment in sheer surprise,  could not repress a laugh.  "Confound your cheek," he cried,  "are you pretending tq^ be hervchanv  pion, when you have just been deluging her with milk and treacle?"  "That was only our little way of  making friends," said Waters calmly;  "though 1 am glad that coffee pot  wasted its sweetness on the desert air  over against the wall of the room. Is  the young lady often like this?"  Hugh hesitated, and Mr. Waters  sighed deeply.  "I was hoping it was a privilege reserved for me," he Baidvdisappointedly; "may I nsk If she lias ever hove  a coffee pot at you, sir?"  "Why, no," admitted Hugh,  ���������������������������"never."  "Then I am still ono ahead of you  in her friendship, sir," said Mr. Waters, brightening up, "and I shall make  a point of endeavoring to seo her  again. 1 never met u lady who impressed me more favorably on first  acquaintance," ho added, feeling his  ear again.  Hugh looked at Mr. Hetherington,  and shrugged hts shoulders helplessly,  and they returned to tho verandah.  "I am sure sho is mad," declared  Hugh; "no ������aho woman could behave  like that In a public hotel."  "Much she cares about Us being  public," retorted Mr. Hetherington.

"In  fact, the prisons are tilled, hot with  from some published artirlo Catch  the interest of the boy or girl in some,  one or other of the vast numbej of  subjects that may be taken up, and  afterwards he will teach himself. Get  him interested, and you cannot keep  him from reading and studying everything relating to the subject. Instead  of becoming dissatisfied with home  and school, and wanting to go to the  shanty, the store or the factory;, he  finds his attention engrossed by  things at home. .He works better, too,  at his other studies.

In the high school, too,,the teaching  of agriculture may be. made to fit with  the  work of  the    a_sociation. A The  scheme is similar to thatyfollowed:in.  .the public schools, that is^theinstrucf  tion is based- on the project thatvthe-  pupii -carries on at heme. Supsoging  fifteen of the older hoys y-in a iiigh  school would like to take up crop im-;  provement.      They    organize   yas  a  branch, of    the    association. /There  would be no compulsion. Some might  want to grow, select and improve a  grain, clover, alfalfa or mangel seed;  others to test and introduce a;-hew  'variety.    If so, that is the work they  would carry,on at home as their project.    It would not take many years,  by  this   means,r to   bring -on   a  few  thousand of the best trained crop improvers.   It is being done.   Five high  schools have commenced    the work.  Last year "at Guelph there Was a class  of twenty-one  school teachers training for it.   The chief thing is for the  people to understand the scheme and  to want it.  Farmers do not understand what is  meant by teaching "agriculture. They  think that it is teaching farming. "1  can teach my boy all the farming he  needs to know; 1 don't see how the  school teacher can teach him anything about farming." Such men have  the idea that farming is .ploughing,  harrowing, seeding nnd haiwesting.  That never was the idea involved in  the teaching of agriculture. Success  in farming is dependent not upon  these manual operations, important  and necossary as they are. The ihiug  that makes for happiness and success  is the ability to reason well, to observe  Employees of the C.P.R. Who  '.

Mr.  knowledge that three months'roadwork at good pay is obtainable  does not tend to encourage initiative among the agriculturists who  are -> satisfied to get government  work and let their ranches lie idle.  It was always possible for them to  get a few months' work and a few  deerfor winter meat and then they  c msidered themselves "jake" for  the winter.  Mr. Ford states that in the  Arrow Lakes district there had  been a great trend toward legitimate farming since the beginning  of the war than during the nine or  ten years preceding it. The farmers were beginning to see where  they would have to settle down to  business on a sound basis.  While few will be inclined to disagree with Mr. Ford that under  the contract system more road  should be built for the same money  than is the case under government  supervision,  we fail  to see where  the     change    would    lessen     the  demand for teams and laborers.

I continued to use Dodd'o  Kidney Pills till now the palpitation  has left me, and I am a well woman,  able to do my work. Dodd's Kidney  Pills cured me and I recommend them  to all persons who suffer as I did."  Notice how many women are rising  to tell their suffering sisters they can  find relief, in Dodd's Kidney Pills. The  reason is that nine-tenths- of women's  ills spring from diseased or disordered  kidneys. Every woman whose kidneys show signs of weakness should  use Dodd's Kidney Pills.

The writer has inspected many works of defense, which the  authorities cannot hide. The work  carried on at all fortified towns iB  weii known a._ to its genera! points,  and "information gathered from all  'sources and sifted with care, the writ-.  er says, points to the. following plaa  of campaign: -  "It is held, once a resolute offen-  ���������eive is offered by the Allies both on    _ _ _   _  land and sea, that the Germans -will runs between high " lanks,"to "the still  fortified and impregnable Antwerp  and along the ^Scheldt np to Boom, it  turns along the line of the ship canal  to Brussels. Then southward along  the line of the Charleroi canal into  the headwaters of the river Sambra,  and Charleroi and from there via the  Sambre to the fortress of ICamur and  the middle Meuse. To those who know  the country these two-lines'of defense  appear impregnable, but the German  staff, has something else u'p its sleeve.  *.(.**_    *.t****jaj*,     u.lt������CiJJ    C411.1*     C.UO    _VW_."  pel as a starting point after passing  Boom and following the river Dyle v.p  to the city of- Malines, an already fortified position guards the river, which.  Will   Endeavor to  Make the  German  Retirement General One When tt  Commences  Hiiaife Belloc, writing in Land-and-  Water, of ti_������ battle before Soissons,  points out that there is a remarkable  similarity between , what happened  there and at Steinbach In Alsace. The  colonel points out that a strong  French offensive was ordered with no  more than the troops "who had been on  the spot against a particular section of  the long German line; that it succeeded and after a delay ������_ 48 hours  at Soissons and nearly of four days  at Seinbach a very lft-ge German reinforcement arrived and reversed the  French attack* The German counter  offensive, however, spent' itself and  could go no further.  The first conclusion drawn from the  parallel is thus-stated  *<T^1__*   r_.i_.vnn i\o   -- __-.<_������������������������  speedily be obliged to evacuate West  Flanders.. A study of the map ol Belgium shows that the principal river  In the west is the Scheldt, a broad and  deep fiver,, navigable -.for its entire  course through the country into  France. From the Dutch frontier  -through A*, twerp up to Tamis* it is  navigable to largo sea going steamers,  and after that for large barges. Its  course from the estuary is, roughly,  north to south, till the fortifications of  Antwerp are passed, then it, bears  west to Ghent and from that city Its  course goes again southward. Between  this part of the river and the coast  and practically parallel with it flows  the Lys, a river of little importance  except in' a wet season.  "From Ghent to the Dutch frontier,  almost due north, is the recently-  opened ship canal. The. first serious  defense is expected to take the line  of this canal from Sasvangent, on the  Dutch frontier, to Ghent, aud to continue the course southward of the  Scheldt, via Audeuavdw Toumai,  (Mount St. Aufbert, behind the town  commands the country for many miles  in all directions), Conde and Valenciennes^ Then, via the reconstructed  and formidable fortress of Maubeuge  to Mezieres and along the line of the  _m. ��������� ������_*������������     ti_.F������������������������-_x    _������������������������_    *h__ _*������.**?  %������������-t*jr*C������     _.**_. *2*ftOV_    *V    A'A^i^tti  "The second line will probably be  as follows: *  "Starting in t.h3 west from   the re-  -  ���������        i  1-,r*������_xtxrl������- *-������    rtniin  ?P    _"~>      _p_ai_SSS i^^*i  ������_-������AuvWne-._r4~.   _���������*���������_*������������_��������������� aa������?   ���������_���������_*_���������   Avn_BB _> ������ny  ������4l IBgyiiliSii' SilSSSISiBil   IN-1JHK III AN Y  SERIOUS   SHORTAGE   Ol.    i<OU__������STLrFFS   EXPECTED  Every Man in France is Determined upon Prosecuting  the  War  to a Successful Outcome,   and will Fight to Remove  Conditions, which Endanger Peace  more unhappy remains of Louvain,  and from these, still.taking advantage  of the river Dyle-, via Wavre to N&-  mur, ..there runs an extremely * scientific line of' trenches, much of it in reinforced concrete.  "This forms a barrier not easily  crossed. In front the ground ia prepared with pitfalls, mined areas and  other traps for the unwary, though as  yet no wire entanglements have been  made except near Namur, where \vhd;e  woods have been sawed down with the  trunks left *ta***,a.ng about tw-_ feet  high. There regular entanglements  are prepared.  "The country along this line ie undulating - ad advantage has - b'eon  taken to prepare Implacements for  heavy guns. Since August six thousand skilled engineers, as well as a  whole army of laborers haye been  working on these defences. The forts  of Liege, Namur and Maubeuge were  completed ia September and those of  Antwer"* are also eom*r������letelv re-ofiired-  ��������� "The third-line, last mentioned, was  completed In September and now has  grown practically invisible. It is not  considered likely that a line farther  north will be prepared as the ground  Is very flat and marshy, but immed-  jotnj. -^shinG the third.' line are ver*ir!  good roaas and railways and it is tin  ideal terrain for a/ defensive campaign."  where the-French-are going to attack  are in s*rea't perii_at having their Hue  broken wherever an attack on a considerable scale is delivered. They will  not risk men,, as yet, at any rate, "in  trying to recover the initiative -for  themselves and in being the first to  attack. The'y^are thus compelled to  wait for the trench initiative. They  meet it, wherever a strong attack is  delivered, by hurrinyg up men from  elsewhere and the men so hurriedjup,  though coming in great numbers,' -io  little more than hold their own."  A further conclusion Js that " the  Germans draw men from other parts  of their line and not from large- avail- j  able reserves of new formations.  Mr. Belloc contends that the facts d.s-  closed show that.the enemy is put  to it by the,actual"thinness of his  lineT ������ __  'He continues: "The problem of the*  allies in the west is not the problem  of gradually pushing back 'an opposing force under pressure to shorten  lines which are already as stretchcu  as they can be, consistently with' being held at all, aad when the compulsion for shortening these lines shall  arrive it cannot, take the form of  gradual, retirement^ from one line of  trenches to another close be"hind it.  It can only take- the form of whole"-  .ale retirement, either evacuating  Northern France and half of Belgium  or evacuating Alsace."  Mr.  Belloc also  analyses  the  German report of the Soissons battle and  r������l_i~-_    . __+   +. n  From an entirely reliable source  is seeured the following summpry of  views taken by leading members of  the French government in regard, to  the present conditions and future  prospects of the war. Spring will un-  doubtelly witness new developments  of the rdost important character  among them the active interposition  of Italy and Roumania.  "With these two nations throwing  the weight of their armies into tbe  balance on. the ,������ide of the* ail'ed powers," said -a cab.net minister,' "I expect that the war will end before next  ���������winter."  From confidential reports obtained  by the French government by means  of- reliable agents, it 'Is believed in  Paris that the German professions of  the soundness "of their financial and  economic conditioi-s are exaggerated.  The.German industrial building looks  -very well from ~tho outside. ' Its facade is made to; look very imposing,  but the building within is an empty  shell.  .Authoritative forecasts of tho economic outlook in Germany, chiefly derived from impartial Swis3 experts,  are gloomy. A' serious shortage of  foodstuffs is expected "before-the winter is out.  With reference to the French prosecution of the war a leading minister,  who, it must be remembered, was  speaking not for the gallery but confidentially and in accents of deep conviction, said:  "Every Frenchman, whatever -his  politics, is determined upon war to a  successful outcome. If we simply  drive the enemy oUt of France wre  should- have accomplished nothing.  We are not fighting for the recoiniues;  of Alsace anl Lorraine, or for the defeat of Germany, but for the destruction of militarism. We do not want  the-* complete downfall of Germany.  We have no right to enforce any con-  torie with Britain. The two countries must act with a common aixo.  and with the hope of establishing new.  -conditions in Europe.  "I don't look for the breakup of tas  German empire unless it comes from  internal revolution, but we shall havo  a right to remove the conditions which,  endanger peace. _>or instance, j_tub-  sia should not -be permitted in future*  to exercise a preponderatinc infliipnne  in the councils of Germany because  as things are. Prussia is the menace.  The franchise iu Prussia should:, be  made the same as ..in other parts of  niermany. Prussia should be rendered  impotent in a military sense, and its  artificial majority in the Bundesrath  removed so that parliament may have  the deciding voice in, the affairs of thw  nation.  "Then we must have a reduction in  armaments.   I don't see the millenium  in  sight  yet,  but the production ot  arms could be controlled by an international   commission   on which   the  present  -belligerents    and    neutrals  would be represented. This commission would have its agents In every  country to see that the manufacture  of arms was reduced to' tlv_ scale imposed on all'nations.   Limitation   of  armaments can .be accomplisned only  by international agreement,    and   it  would be "necessary to bave an. international force-.to see that those agree-.  ments were observed."  ���������My informant, who lia������ had excellent opportunities of forming a considered opinion, added that the gravity of the situation and the prodigious  nature of the-struggle ahead were not  under-estimated in France, which, he  said, was resolute in pursuing tha war.  to the bitter end.      * "       ���������  "There will be no lessening of efforts," he said, "when the Germans  are driven out of Francs.

During the recent raid of Cuxhav-  en, the ease with which Zeppelins  were driven off by the British seaplanes was pointed to as evidence of  the non-value of. the German crafts.  But the British authorities apparently determined to, be as well equipped in every respect as their enemies,  acquiring dirigibles of thr) German  type.

To Fight to the Bitter fend  Contracts For at Least $50,000,000 in  War  Supplies  Received  Already  How Canadian industries are benefitted by the war is seen by the latest  government estimates, which indicate  that 3,000 factories are busy with orders which total at least $50,000,000.  The prospects arc also that the demands for war material wiii be greatly tincerased In the future and there  are indications that Franco and Russia, will  purchase /more    heavily  in  Canada in the future.  A The  war  supplies  for  which  contracts   havei been let in the Dominion  cover a large range of articles. They  include a rifles,    bayonets,-   uniforms,  boots, saddles, trucj: wagons, ammunition, tents, blankets, and many other  materials necessary to equip an army.  Great orders of shrapnel shells have  also been received by a number of  leading Canadian firms; "and one estimate indicates that already 100,000 a  day are being. manufactured in    tho  Dominion with the prospects for an  ii}creased output in the future.  "Tho soldiers' pay is another big  item in the war expenditure, for which  the Canadian government will have to  provide largo sUma. To defray thi3  expense ahd the" others involved as a  result of the struggle it is expected  that the militia^appropriations covering a period of from April! to Jaivuj  ary 1, ot next year, will require $100,-  000,000. Should tho conflict last two  years it Is believed that tho Dominion  will havo expended the sum of $240,-  000,000 in assisting the empire In Its  struggle.  -Another Item which Is expected to  run into large figiues bo_ore the war  wirim lii'thn demand for 1ioi*������ob.
