Edison Inspects Submarine  Found Home ot Hurricanes  Predicts That Submarines Will Soon  be  Able to  Extract Air  From  Water  Thomas A. Edison .recently inspected   a   submarine    boat   for   the   lirst  tJme.    Alter the visit Mr. Edison predicted that the submarine of the near  future   will  be  able   to  stay    under  water almost indefinitely without coming up for air. ���������'���������'���������.���������'.  ���������'Several years ago it occurred to  me/' said Mr, l_disoa, "that if a fish  could extract    enough    oxygen, from  water to live on, man could, do the  same tMag.

AU that is needed is a device with potash batteries  as  its principal part.    Such  an  apparatus could be installed ia a submarine,   tor it would not take much  space,   and it would break water up  into   its. elements   of. hydrogen   and  oxygen,"  According to naval experts, if the  problem of an inexhaustible air supply can be solved as easily as Mr.  Edison believes, submarines with  large fuel capacity may have the  came travelling radius us the present  ���������dreadnoughts.  to  Hard, and soft corns both yield  Holloway's Corn cure, which is entirely safe to use, and certain and satisfactory in its action.  "What does this sentence    mean,  aslced the teacher:   " 'Man proposes,  but God disposes?'"  A small boy in the back of the room  ���������waved his  hand  frantically.

For 3i days  I was alone iu ice, I bad no soles on  'my feet and my hair all fell out But  finally I got back to my base,"  ���������'��������� These aTe the high-spots of a narrative told by Sir Douglas Mawson,  the Australian, who arrived on the  ���������Cunarder Qrduna, and purposes to lec-  *_ure before the American Geographi-.  ���������cal Society on Ms explorations iu the.

Belligerent Nations in Ancient Europe  Classed Their Ne'gbbo.G as Either  Alli������R or Enemies  In ancient" times nations at war  classed their neighbors as either allies  or enemies, writes Herbert W. Bowen  in tbe .lanuui-y (Jasc and Comment.  Neutrality as an international relation  was not recognized. Thoro were no  neutral rights and no neutral duties.  International law itself existed only in  a very rudimentary form.  It was not until alt-i* tho fall of  Rome aud until tho nations of Europe*,  had become numerous ami wore asserting and exorcising comparatively  equal prevention and power that their  interests became so conflicting that  they perceived tho necessity of establishing and supporting a system "of  law that must ho applicable to them  in their relations one with another.

The  Evening Ledger published a picture of  this new instrument of warfare recently. It is about eight inches long,  so grooved that it falls point down,  and woulci, it is. said, if it hit a man  square on the top of the head, go  straight through  him  lengthwise.  The order was rejected "for reasons  of neutrality." It might just as well  have been rejected for reasons of  humanity. The whole world shuddered when bombs were dropped on Antwerp. Since then men have become  accustomed to such outrages, which  apparently have been perpetrated by  Germans and Allies alike. Wo can  conceive of no emergency which would  justify the use of aeroplane darts, resistless and death dealing. Thoy can  serve no niHttary purposes. As well  poison tho water supply. As the war  progresses cruelly becomes moro nnd  more tho vogue, although the world  has been so chilled by outrages that  thoy are accepted as a matter of  course.���������-Pnlhirtelpliiu Kvenlng Ledger.  Camel"**. Love of Tobacco  The camel, who is taking his-part in  the campaign against Turkey, is not,  according to most travellers, a very  companionable beast, but he has at  least one human weakness���������a love of  tobacco. One of the methods used by  Arabs in taming wild camels is to fix  a kind of cigar hokler in the animal's  mouth and insert a huge loosely rolled  cigar. As soon as the camel starts to  draw it becomes remarkably docile,  and quickly learns to inhale the smoke  and emit it through the nostrils. The  one drawback of the system is that the  knowing brute becomes a confirmed  smoker, and refuses to budge without  his cigar.  Woman Made Opera Cloak of Prairie  Chicken Feathers  The latest and most unique oddity  in the way of wearing apparel was  -exhibited by a leading down-town  furrier, Toron_6, in the form of a  lady's opera cloak made of the feathers plucked from prairie chickens. The  originator and manufacturer is a  woman who lives on a farm outside of  Saskatoon. She is asking ������10,000 for  the creation. The price seems exorbitant and out of all proportion to the  value of such an article, bin a few  facts about the making of it may explain--  ;��������������������������� Twelve years ago, the owner saw  a picture of the ermine robe worn by  British royalty. She. conceived the  idea of making such a one with the  substitution for the feathers frbm  prairie chickens for the extremely expensive fur. For twelve years she toiled unceasingly, holding ever in her  mind's eye, the conception of the un-  ished cloak.  A slight idea of the amount of work  required can be given by the T&ct that  3.697 prairie chickens had to be killed,  plucked and every feather trimmed  and /clipped, then matched and sewn  on the cloak. Every feather that went,  on the creation had to be sewn in  three different places.  In Its finished state, the opera  cloak is full length and has an'unusual  appearance, each feather -being white  with a brown centre. To take the  place of fasteners, the heads of the  birds, three-down each side, have been  sewn on. It is lined with brocaded  silk. '  It is understood that if the owner  is unable to find a purchaser in, Toronto, she will travel to Ottawa and  endeavor to induce the government  authorities there to include the cloak  in the exhibit which will be sent from  Canada to the World's Fair at San  Francisco this year.  ������������������|Ef9fS9_-'B9_'9  Ii U  bread and watch  ~ them sftille  Can be had from  your Grocer -  HELP   WANTED���������FEMALE  Ladies wanted to do plain'and light  jewing at "home,"whole or spare time;  good pay; work sent any distance;  charges paid;.

"It Is no exaggeration to say that  Enver Pasha's military clique, under  Germany's compulsion, betrayed the  interests of Islam, anl that the Turkish government, in submitting to it,  has abdicated Its sovereignty .and  Turkey must now face the consequences of those actions, But however the tide ��������� of events may share,  there can be no doubt" that tho holy  places shall remain inviolate, and  that Islam will still be one of the  gieat world forces.  "From the moment that the intervention of Turkey appeared probable,  it was clear that amongst the Moslems of India there would be a natural sentiment of sympathy with a  great Mohammedan power. But when  the character and motives of this  war became fully known and realized  by tho Moslems of India, any such  sentiment was absolutely swept aside  by their feelings of unswerving  loyalty to the King-Emperor and to  the .empire whose cause they re-  rf.rtgmz_'! to- V!e~-that of freedom,  honor and Justice.

The pigeonholes  of every ministry of war in the world  -must bulge with particulars of discoveries of this nature, and yet we find  men killing one another crudely with  cold steel, just as they did in the days  of the^Crusades.    One   is   inclined,  therefore^ to be sceptical.   And. yet the  feats  of modern  science    are very  wonderful, and \tliere are real as .well  as make": believe workers    of magic.  Wireless telegraphy, the heavier-than-  air     flying  machine,  a   number  of  achievements in surgical "and medical  science, havo so impressed us that we  no longer, dare to say - that anything  is impossible.  In that spirit, then, we approach the  assertions  of the crop of inventors  who are proposing to supply us with  the means of worsting our enemies in  the present war.   It goes .without say-  'ing that most of these proposals are  worthless; but there are some Which  demand attention.   We learn, for instance, that a person deucribod as "aj  distinguished English   chemist"   has  produced   an explosive substance the  effect of which when used in artillery  shells is "annihilating." It Is said that  a shell Mled with this substance will,  on detonation,  give    out n blast of  flame, over n/mllo long and nearly two  hundred yards wide, of so in ton bo a  nature" that nothing can live in the  area of its passage. . Men, animals and  things aro 'urnod instantly    into a  Hcorchod and charred mans, and all the  atmosphere within tho radius of the  explosion is so nffeotod that Instead  of supporting 11^ destroys llfo, ohomical  notion bohiK. brought to bear on the  oxygon that It contains.

Ono is bound  to credit the possfbltrties of the discovery, but then, as I have said, one  has heard of similar discoveries so often before. It will be wise, I fancy,  for us to go on with the preparation of  our new armies."

"There is a feelirig'ih soma quarters  that our British sea power is, owing  to various considerations, not producing on theu enerSy the economic restrictions which it ought to produce.  On the one hand It may be recognized  the foreign oiiiee has an extremely  hard task in dealing witn the powerful neutral nations.  -We-cannot afford  in this struggle to alienate these who,  remaining outside the influence of the  war, yet regard us and our cause with  sympathy.    At   the same time    the  nation ought to   have the assurance  Wiat effectual fheasures   will be taken  ���������to prevent   Germanp   or Austria-Hungary receiving material necessary ;o  the production of war material.   As an  instance of the anxiety which Is felt  in this connection wo have only to  turn to the Canadian papers.

"Silence-r-Doeds j  not AVords," displayed in a prominent  position for tho edification of the offiiF  ers.  It was at an academy banquet some  years ago that Lord Fisher told how  he found another motto.

"No soldier of ours can go anywhere," he said, "unless a sailor carries iiim en his back." It wars a phrase  which brought down, the house,-but  the cheers were .partially due to the  fact that Lord Fisher, In tne whirl of  his excitement, emptied a dec? nter of  claret over the shirt front of Lord  Middleton, who Was then secretary of  war, and who was sitting next to  him.

Since the more dreadful ending is in  plain view, why not force the better  ending now?  __n4 the better ending, in the opinion bf this leading American paper, is  nothing short of revolution.  ' In Jone v f the most striking leadi ig  articles which has appeared in- the  American press since the outbreak of  the war, t_.e"New York Times says':  Germany is doomed to sure defeat.  Bankrupt in statesmanship, overmatched in arms, under the ^noral  condemnation of the civilized world,  befriended only by Austria and the  Turk (two backward'lcoking dying nations) desperately battling with the  hosts of three great powers, she pours  out the blood of her heroic subjects  but cannot alter the final decree. Yet  the doom of the German "empire may  become the deliverance of the German  people. A million Germans' havo been  sacrificed, and a million homes" are desolate.

This, he declares, aniount-j to beginning* a retveat before they are ap-  tually defeated.  The    critics   also   point   out    the  large  proportion   of   officers,   Including  colonels  and  lieutenant-colonels,  amogn   the prisoners,    as indicating  the demoralization    of   the Austrian  army  and  the loss    of the  fighting  spirit.

Owing to having very little first-hand  information on the Valley his remarks  on the soil were brief, merely remarking that his limited observation con-,  vinoed him that the soil was mostly  clay and that fall ploughing was advisable���������the frost, assisted materially  in preparing the seed bed. For fertilizer he advocated a heavy barnyard  manure on the clay lands, and well  rotted mauure where ��������� the soil was  Handy.-.  Discussing crops, he urged the sowing of alfalfa. It had the greatest food  value, would grow in two years and  was good for from six to twelve years.  It should be planted on clean land, following corn, roots or potatoes. If full  sown sow it alone, butif spring planting was resorted to barley is a fine  partner. If put in in the fall it should  . be howii early so as to get considerable  growth before the freeze up; if spring  ������own it nhould bo got in early also to  ���������urtim** a good   stand   before  the dry  mitted get into better stock. The  most satisfactory way was for the  ranchers to all go in for fchesame grade  of cattle.

In stabling dairy cows cement floors  were a decided drawback. The records show that cows standing ou an  earth floor will give 20% more milk  than those housed on cement. Stable  temperature should never be above 50,  and they should be well lighted���������the  sun is the best disinfectant. Where a  seperator is used milk should be skimmed as soon as it comes from the cow:  If put in shallow p*ms milk house  should have a temperature of 60 degrees." Where water cooled-a temperature of 45 degrees would cause the  cream to rise thoroughly.  In butter making uniform make and  quality is essential. These factors had  secured the markets for the New Zealand produce. The prairie butter makers were rapidly getting into line and  if the B.C. dairymen want to compete  they cannot afford to take chances on  quality.  Both Mr. Wiancko and Mr. Newton  wero cross questioned by maiiy in the  audience���������so much so that it was 23.15  before the vote of thanks ~to the  speakers and the closing exercises  came.  A meeting of the Co-Operative  Fruit Growers^ Association will be  held in the Association's office in  the depot building at 8 o'clock on  Saturday night.

He attributed'  this to careful attention and good feeding, clover, roots, corn and some grain  forming the diet.  Queried as to the suitability of the  Valley lands for. sheep ranching both  Mr. Newton and Mr. Wiancko predicted that the Canyon City Lumber Co.  would find the 2.500 acres they proposed fencing, partly for sheep raising, a  splendid investm-. nb if they gave it.the  same careful management as was. accorded the small Holstein herd. The  white Dutch clover which thrives in  these parts. cannot be excelled for'  sheep pasture.  The visitors had nice things to say of  Mr. Rodgers' .enterprise, particularly  in cattle. Tho existence here of the  herd was the most convincing proof to  prospective settlers that, this yynp a  land of dairy cattle as well as fruit,  while for the resident rancher in quest  of advice or information tho Rodgors'  enterprise was of incalculable benefit.

I know of no hotter answer to such  a question than a letter lately written  bv a real farm boy to the Progressive  l'urmer. This boy's name is Clyde  Kvans and he lives near Abbottsburg,  N.C.   In part he writes as follows:  "As 1 am a farm boy I am going  t j giye you my opinion of how I think  the boy could be more easily kept on,  the farm. 1 have lived on the farm all  my life and as father is a renter I  have never had the ��������� pleasure some  t../x.._ ijov'e but I like the fn.m inst  the same.     ,  ���������  "Mr. Farmer, how are you treating  your bov?   .This is a question every 1 tion  Beef arict Wheat  <'S_ve     Your    Breeding     Stock���������the  World Will Want Meat and Dairy  Products���������Sow Oinly- the Best/  Wheat, Oats  and   Barley   '  Annvoximatelv 20.000.000 men are i_t ���������  the'held or under arms,  withdrawn  "from the producing classes to become  conaumers and destroyers.

"Mr.  Keene must be rather a firebrand, I  should think."  Mr. Robbins agreed that he was,  and told some more anecdotes to illustrate the furious hatred he entertained  towards all colored people. He hinted  that there was something in Keene's  past life to account for this obess'on;  and after a time Hugh changed the  subject by asking carelessly if Mr.  Robbins knew anyone in that neighborhood of the name of Siddle.  "Siddle?" exclaimed Mr. Robbins  staring, "why, yes, I reckon���������why, we  all know Noah Siddle, and the place  where the little devils live."  "Good lord! what do you mean?"  cried Hugh, starting to his feet in excitement and some fear.  Mr. Hetherington sprang to his feet,  too. He was very pale, and was almost as startled as Hugh at meeting  again with this strange a.ul ominous  expression. But, as if amused at their  excitement Mr. Robbins burst into a  laugh.  "I suppose it does sound queer," he  Bald, "but it is only the name we give  about here to old Noah Siddle's place."  - "Who is Noah Siddle?" asked Hugh  quickly.  "A very remarkable old man," replied Mr. Robbins, "as any one who,  like me, is without prejudices is bound  to admit, whatever his character'may  be. He lives all alone on a farm the  other side of Athens, and most no  one has ever seen him, and those who  have don't ever want to see him \o  more."  "Why?" asked Hugh.

Too Lucky by Half  Signing to his uncle to follow him,  and saying something to Mr. Robbins  about getting a little fresh air after  their excellent supper, I-Iu^gh rose from  the table and went out on the verandah that ran nearly the whole length  of the front of the hotel:    The man  Hugh had  noticed  was  sitting  with  his hands in his pockets, and his hat  pulled over his none, apparently taking  no  notice    of    anything    whatever,  though It might have been observed  thnt ho seemed to stir slightly as Hugh  appeared.    It happened that he was  sitting with an empty chair on each  side of him, and Hugh, motioning to  his uncle    to take  ono,  himself sat  down on tho other, so that they had  the stranger between     them.    Then  Hugh touched him on  the shoulder.  "I beg your pardon," he said, "but  I think wo havo met before."  Tlio mini started, looked quickly  from one to the other, und tiprang to  his foot as if inclined to make a bolt  for it. But Hugh caught him quickly  by tho nrm, and the fltrangor submitted with a moekness that again might  have ueemed just the least trifle mis-  ploloUB.  "So it Is yon, Ih it?"' ho said, and  then ho begun to laugh. .  "It Is," answored Hugh, "and 1 urn  pleauod to observe that thin tlmo you  nro white."  "Ali,i yofi," said tho man, laughing  again,l"I made u dnndy nigger, didn't  I?"  "And you havo tho Impudence���������" began Sir, Mcthorlngton in n rage, whon  Hugh checked him with a gesture.

He is turning his back on more  than a living. He is turning his back  on a life. And a life that counts'.  Don't take the word of an unknown observer for all this. Listen to George  Washington, who said: "Agriculture is  at once they most noble, the most  Healthful and the most useful occupation of man." Or consult any levelheaded business man in the handiest  town or city.  If this ..man knows and is honest,  he'll tell you that for one farm boy  who Is making good in the city ten  Just are "getting past"���������barely making  a living, and in order to do this working like slaves under conditions which  make even a poor farm look like u  quarter section of kingdom come. /  ��������� He may point to one country hoy  who has rlBon to fame and fortune,  but that boy is an exedption.

The shareholders"of the Union Bank  of Canada who attended    the annual  meeting   held   in Winnipeg, * on the  6th    of    January,    had    no" "reason  to feel disappointed over the report  presented to them. The record showed  that a half century of careful business >  had resulted in the building up of a j  strong  reserve,   the .accumulation  oi I  ���������assets    totalling over    $81,500,000.00,  aud in the establishing of the bank In  a leading position among the banking  institutions of the country.  Net profits for the year 1914 amounted to over $712,000.00, as compa.-cd  with $750,000.00 for the previous year.  This contraction of $38,000.00 in net  prqfits was to be expected owing to>  ���������the" world-wide business depression,  which included Canada in its sweep  and affected the earnings of all our  banking institutions, Apart from this  one decrease the general showing.,  made by the ban_:,was satisfactory,  while a number of gains were registered. Note circulation showed an increase over the figures for 1913, while  current loans in Canada were j?4,000,-  000.00 more than in 1913. Total assets  are over $1,000,000.00 greater than in  the previous year, and now stand at  $81,5617000.00.  The increas^of $4,000,000.00 in current loans is rather exceptional and indicates' that the ������ank lias not been  .curtailing credit to its customers, hut  on the other hand-^has been doing its  full share in catering to the business  needs of the communities in which its  branches' are located.    At   the same  time  that  this  generous jpollcy  was  pursued, the bank was careful to maintain an unusually large proportion of  its assets in quickly available form,  and tha liquid assets amount to 34.90  ���������oer cent, 'of the .bank's total liabilities  to  the public.

Dividend requirements absorbed $450,-  000.00,-the rate paid during the year  being at the rate of 8 per cent, with a  bonus of 1 per cent. ���������Tke sum of  $215,0-0.00 was set aside for deprecia-.  tion in securities, contribution to patriotic fund absorbed" $25,000.00, .while  the officers' pension fund amounted to  $10,000.00, leaving a balance to ba  carried   forward  of $103,000.t)0.    ,  The addresses of the president and  General Manager were characterized  by conservative optimism. They both  took full recognition of the business  depression which prevailed throughout  Canada, and which affected the earnings of the bank, but at the same time  expressed their confidence in the future of the country. President Calt  pointed out that there was an increase  in the land ready for crop next year  amounting to twenty per cent/ and concluded his address with the Statement  that "Hard work, courage and intelligent economy will undoubtedly bring  us safely through the present ordeal."  Altogether the report presented at the  annual-meeting should prove satisfactory to the" shareholders;  to their experiences in the treatment  of the wounded, in the course of  which' they say:  "The destruction of tissue in bullet  wounds is so gi*sat that each .side has  repeatedly accused the other of using  dum-dum bullets This is based on i.n  entirely mistaken reading of the evidence.

Forest Reserve is Necessary  Conservation   of  Watershed  ef  Lake  of the Woods Required to Main-  f tain Supply  Lying near the western boundary of  the province of Ontario, and extending  into the province of Manitoba and the  state of Minnesota, the Lake of the  Woods system plays an important  part in the water supply of that region. When surrounded by a timbered area, the watershed was amply  protected. With the increase of population, however, the timber has become a prey to flro and to the unscientific forester, and under present  conditions, it is only a question .<���������'������  tlmewhen all timber of any value will  be removed. V  The Lake of the Woods Watershed  Is the great reservoir of the Winnipeg  river and the waterpowers of the latter  supply the city of Winnipeg and town  of Kenora with light and power, At  an early data, Shoal lake, a l_ iuulury  to the Lake of the Woods, will furnish  the water.supply for the. city of Winnipeg; construction work on the pipe  lino Is at present under way. At the  meeting of the Commission of Conservation in January last, Mr. J. B,.  Challles, superintendent of the water  power branch of the department of the  Interior, proposed that this (llstrlct'be  set aside as a forest reserve.  The area is one hi which, owing to  tho nature of tho underlying rock, tho  flood run-oft' of the rivers is excessive.  The fact that the southwestern portion  of the lako Is in the Unltod States  vendors the situation more difficult,  in that it is not possible-Lo luut-i'lally  ral30 tho. level of the water by conservation dams.  For the perpetual honoflt of the  surrounding territory, it Is of the utmost Importance that tho Lake of tho  Woods district bo sot aside as a forest reserve, This would provide for  the protection mid renewal of the timber, ahd for tlio maintenance of tho  forcat cover, of the watershed. In  this way tho waters of tko lakes, on  which so many depend for tho supply  of water, light and power, would ho  conserved.���������-D., in Conservation.
