Although not  represented, in either the first or second  force,' Duck Creek has now come to  the front and 'in sending these five  men she is sending five who for physical and intellectual fitness are second  to none in the whole Dominion, and  wherever they go we feel confident  they will pr.ove a creditto Duck Creek  and to Canada.  Creston Asked  To Send Ten Men  Recruiting for the Third Canadian  Contingent commenced in Creston on  Monday. Lieut. Bennett received  word on Saturday from headquarters  at Fernie to proceed with the work  forthwith. ^  Creston has again been asked to furnish ten men, and.-as on a previous  occasion, several-more than the required number made application fop places  on the force to be raised.

Duck Creek heads the list with  recruits on this occasion, five of the  boys coming from that section.  The Volunteers wiii drill in Creston  until orders are-reeeived as to where  they are to be mobilized. It will most  likely be Victoria, tihough Cranbrook  has been mentioned.

Uncertainty as to  the exact date of departure rendered  it desirable to make sure of their getting a good sendoff and Wednesday  being the only available night Matt.  Hagen arranged for the use of the hall  and.announced the dance. About 40  people wore present. After supper,  amid scenes of pnthnsiasm and patriotism, Mr. Sparkon arose to add reus the  meeting,'ami in a few wtll-choson  words explained that we had not met  there in order to glvb the boys, who  wero soon to leave, a good time and a  hearty sendpif and thanked them for  what thoy .aro doing for their country  and for those of us who could not go.

The service from  beginning to end  was bright  and inspiring in  every detail. , The responsive readings was par- ;  ticipated   in   with    enthusiasm,   the  hymns were appropriate and vigorously rendered, and the two special nuni-  bors by the union Methodist-Presby- "  terian choir, "I was Glad"and "Father  of Mercies" were done full justice to,  the latter being a particularly pleasing  selection.  There were two addresses. Rev. F.  Carpenter gave a brief historical sum-  Jpai-y of the leading events that featured the diplomatic relations between  the two countries, as affecting Canada,  and Rev. G. W. Blake preached a  masterly Hcrmon bearing on the present European war, taking as his text,  "Nevertheless we, according to his  m-m-niwe, look for new heavens .and a-  hew earth whereindwclleth righteousness."  While not caring to 'attribute.'the  accomplishment of the one hundred  years of peace solely to tho fact that  the two nations involved spoke the  same language, Mr. Blake ompl.asiw.d  the fact that, undoubtedly tills similarity of spee-di had been a factor Jo  bringing about tho century of harmony and goodwill. Alluding to the  Kuropean struggle Mv. Blake maintained that the clash had to come.  The theory that "preparedness for  war ensureH pence" had been exploded.

"Well, I'm blessed," said Hugh,  quite amazed at this sudden light;  Then he laughed and shrugged his  shoulders; and not feeling inclined to  set off on a wild chase through the  wood, he quietly resumed his way,  though keeping a sharp look out to  make sure his dark friend was not  following  him.  v.*������.  as    Mr.  Hetherington had named his house.

The effects of seamen, marines and  soldiers lulled or dying in the British  service, are exempt from tho regular  duty; and it ihey amount to less than  a hundred pounds, they are not probated. In the case of prisoners of  war, wills are subject to special regulations.  Under the.

The cruisers were supposed to be  preparing to run ou-. through th������  English fleet, which was reported to  be lying in wait for them off the harbor, but instead they fled with all  speed to neutral waters, where they  were sold to prevent fighting and  capture.  In the United States nuncupative  wills, the right to make which lies  only with sailors at sea or soldiers  in the field, are somewhat rare, but  one was admitted to probate .in Kings  County in December, 1909. It was  made by George O'Connor, chief engineer of the steamship Dorothy;  when the vessel was in mid-ocean.  All that he said was: "Everything  that I have belongs to my daughter  Lizzie." The will was proved with  the aid of two witnesses, tire captain  and the first officer of the Dorothy.  __, ������.������  ucx j* a .'  seen a negro eetore. tie coma not  shake oS the ������ussr illc-tcal imt*rss-  sioa he had that somehow there was  some connection between the colored  chauffeur of the car that had so nearly killed him. and this other colored  man   sitting    munching    bread    and j through the box-wood hedge, he found  cheese by the wayside. ; himself in sight of a curirms' scene.

He had  seemed big enough white sitting, but  now that he was standing up he showed himself quite, a giant, over-topping  Hugh's great height by at least three  inches, his chest and shoulders broad  and massive in proportion.  "Why do you want to know that,  sir?" he asked iu tones whose very  softness held a menance.  "Never mind why," said Hugh and  threw him half-a-crown.   "I'll give you  a sovereign for what you can tell me."  The man picked up the half-crown  and pocketed it  "Come and sit by me." he said.  "Thank you," returned Hugh, on his  guard, for though he was neither nerv-  our nor suspicious he recognized  something coldly threatening in the  negro's tones. "I can stand very well.  Do you want to earn mv sovereign or  not?'  The negro gave a swift look round  to make certain there was no one in  sight.  "Yes, I want it." he said, "and I'll  cut your throat to get it!"

Instead lie leaped forward himself, anticipating his assailant's attack, and  before the negro could make any  movement to defend himself he struck  him *.i tremendous blow right on tho  point of the jaw.

Germany's total export trade to  Argentina in 1912 amounted to nearlv  $62,000,000 as compared with about  $116,000,000 for Great Britain and  about $2,250,000 from Canada. Brazil  bought from Germany in 1912 goods  to the "value of $160,000,000 as compared with $235,000,000 from Great  Britain and $3,400,00 from Canada.  The opening of Canada, in securing  markets in Argentina and Brazil to replace German goods are many. They  include manufactured timber canned  goods, paper and wood pulp, manufacturers of iron and steel, agricultural  machinery, cement, furniture and pre-  i served fish.  men the women did their share not  only by encouragement but by raising  of money for the relief of the wives  and others left behind, by visiting  these other women and using influence  in many cases to help them, and by  sending medical and other supplies to  the contingents in South Africa.  Almost immediately after Canada  began to-take an active part in the  South African war the Montreal-Herald made the suggestion that a patriotic fund should be' started for those  in need. It was the idea of the Her-  ajd, but it was adopted at once by  the Montreal Star, and the larger and.  wealthier newspaper henceforth conducted the campaign for funds, ���������to  which great numbers of women and  children contributed.  In October, 1899, Mrs. Hutton, wife  of Major-General (now Sir Edward)  Hutton, then commanding the Canadian militia, organized the Soldiers'  Wives League, under the patronage of  Lady Minto, wife of the then governor-  general. The object of the league was  to bring the wives of ail soidiers in  Canada, of every rank, into close touch  and sympathy, for mutual aid and assistance in times of distress and difficulty. Systematized aid was arranged by the league for the families of the  men who formed the Canadian contingents for active service in South  Africa. The -president ot the league  was Mrs. Drummond, wife of Major  (now Brig.-Gen.) Lawrence Drummond, then military secretary to the  governor-general, and the., secretary  was Mrs. Cotton. In Montreal, Mrs.  W. D., Gordon, wife of Colonel Gordon,  who himself saw service in South Africa, was at the head of affairs, and  Mrs. Minden Cole was secretary. Quebec and Winnipeg also formed  branches. It is exceedingly likely that  when the Canadians go to the front;  the league will jiow be revived. *  It was-jn February," jj.900,. that Mrs.  Clark Murray, wife of .t-rofessor uiark  Murray, of McGill University, founded  the Imperial Order of the Daughters  of the Empire, with juvenile branches  CLOTHESPIN IVIACH.NE8  What Happens When a Log* of Woofl  '  Starts-* Throt*flh   Them  Making clothespins is an'industry  that ne,ts handsome returns to many,  American factories: At'������������������MftTtiRSViUa-  In'tli,������������������' thereiis a factory which has *  capacity of more than 200,000 clothespins a day.

Antwerp appears in history as early  as .the seventh century. A century  later it was an important port and  market town. In the twelfth century  it was commercially prosperous and  under the rUle .of the dukes of Burgundy, who at times aspired not only  to the throne of France^ but harbored  designs on tbjeA erowir'"of England. In  the fifteenth century Antwerp was one  of the most important marts in Eur-  op e. the entering point for English  and continental trade. In: the sixteenth century, under the rule of  Charles V. it was the seat of the Han-  seatic League and the money depot of  Europe. In" 1584-5 it was besieged,  taken and ruined by tho Dake of Alva.

"Delia," Hugh cried again, ('leave  hold of that man!"  The girl obeyed and sank back into  her chair, still shaking with the wild  extremity of her fury. She was quite  young, of a pretty, fair type, with  blue eyes, a perfect complexion, and  light brown curly hair, and with absolutely nothing in her ordinary expression, unless it was a certain occasional dilation of the eye, to indicate the  ���������furious and uncontrolled temper that  sho possessed���������or rather, that possessed her.

A  Murder   In   1870  Avenged   in   19i4  An  exceedingly sad   story    comes  from the front.  During the Franco-German war of  1870 the Germans, by their invasion  of Alsace, spread untold miseries  among the villagers, whose property  they claimed. A certain well-to-do  farmer named Haufi! became so much  enraged by the plunder of his well-  stocked farm that he shot dead two  German soldiers. He was immediately taken outside his house - andv executed. In vain his wife begged for  his life. She afterwards found their  little boy-crying on the dead body of  his father.  "Mother," the child said, "when !  grow up I shall avenge father and  shoot G.ermans."  The widow, finding further abode  in Alsace under German riile unbearable, emigrated to Belgium and set-  tied near vise, where she took another farm.  Her boy became a man, the father  of a family, Including two boys, and  for forty-two years his mother shared with him and her grandsons happy family life at Vise. Then camo the  present war, and tho Gorman troops  arrived in Vise.  The Bolglan Inhabitants had just  before destroyed a bridge over tho  Mouse. For this thoy wero soveroly  punlslwd by destruction of their  houses. Farmer Hauff witnessed  those outrages, and bosldo himself  with distress, and romemberlng his  promise ovor his father's body, shot  ono German invadoiv dead. At once  a number of nolrtlcro oolzod him and  draggod also from his houso his two  sons.        '  sx'.All throe were pin end against a wall  and rtii^Vmaiily^oxocutod.

Both parable and proverb have im-.  niortalized themselves in history.  When the Scottish nobles met at Stirling in a body they proposed to take  Spence, the obnoxious favorite of  James II., and hang him and so get  rid of him.  "Ah," said Lord Grey, "that's very  well said, but who'll bell the cat?"  "That will 1," said the black Earl  Angus. He undertook the task, accomplished it and was called "Archibald  uell the Cat" until his dying day.���������  Glasgow Times.

Tne speakers are expected to-inform,  the agriculturists in each district having regard to the nature of the soil of  that particular part of the country,  what he should grow in largest quantities in order to best help his country  in the present crisis. And in this instance, it is worth noting that peison-  al and public interests go hand in hand  for it is reasonable to suppose that, if  the farmer produces much of what is  most needed he is going to be the most  successful,]  These conferences with the people  will be very informal and it is hoped  that all ranchers within reasonable  reach will make it a point of attending. It is a duty they owe, not only  to themselves, but to their country.  FRANK -H. JACKSON  ���������*-*���������    i  * It   .....������, .....������  * ������ *.

Asparagus  can scarcely be classed as a medicine, though it is said to be good iu  cases of palpitation and a sedative ia  affections of the heart. It seems to  be rarely prescribed in the present  day however.  The properties of French beans and  carrots are well known, but much of  the. efficiency of the vegetables de-'  pends upon the way in which they are  cooked.

There are few things that this accomplished king cannot do or hasn?t  done. He fights, rides, swims, shoots,  and engages in aviation, engineering  and writing with equal facility. He  was an ordinary newspaperman for a  long time, carrying a police card, visiting police stations and. doing what  would be known here as. "ship news."

Possibly his stay in America in 1888j  when he little dreamed of being king,  ^gjjve him the training necessary to set  a new standard for quicK newspaper  work in Brussels and Antwerp.  King Albert is more than six feet in  height and has a fair complexion and  golden hair. He is 39 years old, is  unusually devbted and has three chii ���������  dreri. He is the son of the deafyDuke  of Flanders, and it was the mysterious  death of his brother, the Prince of  Baudoin, which made his accession to  the throne possible. .  In 1898 he came to America, and  spent much time in New Ydrlc, Washington and the east, went west and  stayed for months in St. Paul, Minn.  While there he studied about every  conceivable industry in the country,*  On liis, return he wrote a book about  America, which evidenced the fact  that this idea of an ideal governme.it  was ..the one his country had adopted.

This pro-  posal is embodied in an official circular which is being widely distributed  and has for its immediate aim the  calling of a meeting at some central  point in the Canadian prairie west at  f-ihich this object shall be discussed  by representatives of the Dominion  and provincial governments, the business and producing interests, as well  as financial institutions; and the railways. A V ':-  It appears the Regiria board of trade  has had a, definite plan under consideration for some time past. This circular points but that the world's greatest heed in the-^iearvfuture must be  food, that is the opportunity of Canada, which thus will be able to meet  Its obligations; on* the tremendous  amounts of capital invested in the Dominion ������������������'��������� during recent years. But for  the last couple of years" the increase  in area under crof> in Western Canada  has no.t been so great as it should  be under normal conditions, of immigration and cultivation. At the present time Canadian cities are full of  unemployed thrown oh their own resources through stoppage of railway  construction, city building and the  like. Thousands ofy these laborers  were engaged in farming operations  before coming to Canada. At the same  tinie it is estimated that one hundred  thousand heavy horses are now standing idle in Canada for a like-reason.  .:" The"Aidea then is to get these people  and horses onto the land and a rough  estimate is that several ymUlion, acres  may rapidly be brdughtiihlo A crop by  this means.

In charging  nome they have exhibited an impetuosity that quite equals the best French  traditions and there seems every reason to believe that when nronerlv led  they will be among the most'valuable  soldiers that can be employed against  the common foe. The Turcos are the  native black and yellow troops o������  Africa who live under the French flag.  Many of them are of Arab blood and  to fight is as natural for them as ..o  eat.

In  ���������the Franco-Prussian war, ^France called upon some of her legions from Algiers and if she had called iipbn more  of them It is possible that the war  would have had a different ending. At  "Wisenburg the Turcos drove back the  German infantry with heavy loss, and  under McMahon at Worth they hacked their way through the solid German ranks. Although jtliey were not  then fighting for; their fatherland the  French blacks displayed all the qualities necessary in a soldier. Since then  they have been brought closer to  France. The policy of the French jgov-  ernm?nt' has been to impress the natives in her colonies with the magnificence and imp ortane 3 of the  French nation. Alt; is only- a few  months.ago that, in pursuance of this  wise policy, the French war office  brought several'companies of Sehe-  gambians to Paris. It was said that  the Idea was to show the citizens bf;  France what magnificent specimens of  manhopd were  to be found    in the  ���������Vi3.

There is no provision made for highway traffic.  "The bridge is 88 feet'wide, and like  the Forth Bridge in Scotland has a  clear height above extreme highwater  of 150 feet so as not to interfere with  the passage of steamers to arid froja  the port of Montreal.    _  It' consist^   of  two  immense  pairs  of cantilevers, borne on two piers, in  the river, with a suspended span between them.   According to the "British Engineer," it .is as if two-third3  of the  Forth  Bridge were takeu except that it is built of plates and bars  instead of tubes.    The   vertical post  over  the  piers  is  the largest single  piece of this type ever constructed.  A The fabrication of    the    different  pieces of ironwork has been going on  for the last year and a half at the  sliopyj    of   the    St. Lawrence Bridge  Company,   Montreal,   especially  built  for carrying out this work.  i Some idea of the difficulty the contractors  have   had   to   contend  with  may be gained from the fact that, in  addition to  constructing *an  entirely  new plant for the work, they had to  face   the problemy, of cphEtructi.ng a  bridge which has no" equal in bridge  construction,  with  an untried  equip  mont. and a new organization. .Under  these circumstances the difficulties of  cbristrjtcting     an    ordinary     Abridge  which would  have  been  great,  were  considerably increased \by the unusually   stringent   specifications' govern- j  ing the work and the unprecedehtad  size of its members.  ; Until  the bridge    is  completed  in  1916, the railway traffic between the  north  and  south  shores    of  the  St.  Lawrence, is to be handled by a special car ferry vessel just completed in  England.

Canadians are showing symptoms of  an acute attack of economic neurasthenia. No one can accuse us of being  afraid to fight. Show us a German  and we will tackle him without hesitation. What we are afraid io do is to  go on living. Instead of composedly  and cheerfully taking up each day a  task as the day appears we are trembling in anticipation of unimaginable  scarcity and poverty. It is not hard  times that we expect, we have them  already. It is not simply hard timss  'made harder by war. We could understand that and meet it. It is  times so stark and inflexible that iron  is in comparison as a sponge and the  traditional poker pliant as a thread.  More prosaically, it is something  formless, vast and ghoally, the^ more  dreadful because our reason gives it  no shape. If we were all to be doomed  to death by slow starvation we should,  scarcely be more frijghtened.  We may adm;   that the war will di :-  turb trade, remove bread-winners from  their homes, pile up private and public debts, and generally mitigate the  prc&perity of the recent i-ast.

Just as Germany has staked all  on the men,,jo has France elected to  trus,������ to her fort and field artillery.  Gerfnany has wittingly shut her eyes  to the awful carnage of which the  "French guns are capable, hoping to  rush and capture them by infantry.  France is gambling that her guns will  be able to annihilate any force that  comes within their range. And she is  ready to sacriHce any number of*������ her  own infantry merely to. protect her  guns from capture, to keep them in  action.  Which system will win? This is  the question that military experts the  world over are asking as they watch  the mighty forces hurled at each other  along the Franco-German frontiers.  Both systems really date back to the  time of the great Napoleon, after having boen (,ried out with varying success in the Franco-Prussian war of  1870 and in the Russo-Japanese war of  1905. While the Germans have powerful cannon and tho French have wonderful infantry, each army has boen  built up on directly diverging and  highly specialized lines. The Germans  haye admittedly the best massed  troops us tho French have admittedly  the best arHllcry.

This is a tremendous reservoir, upon which France, may draw  for y'bars, should the war last that  long.  How many thousands of drilled  black and yellow troops France could  place in the field is not konwn, The  army decree of December, 1900, undoubtedly contemplated the use of the  native troops In Europe. By that  order the French colonial army was  reorganized, and while It was stated  that the organization was chiefly for  the defence of the colonies, it was  provided that these troops irilght as  called upon for service in any part of  the world where French interests  were nt stake. When the ' French  brought the Turcos and Sphasl to Europe in 1870, there was very general  criticism of the act, based upon the  grounds that there was, something  barbarous in the idea or pitting black  men against whites.
