"It is a man," replied her father.  "This is my property, you know, and  Hannah is caretaker for It. He has a  duplicate key of every house in case  it is necessary to obtain entrance.

A knock came at the door, and the  butler appeared with word that a  policeman and a cabman wished to see  Mr. Hetherington,  "Why, here is news already������" exclaimed Hugh.  Mr. Hetherington ordered the two  visitors to be shown in. ihe cabman  v/as, in fact, the man who had driven  Eira and the supposed constable away.  His story was that as soon as they  were fairly out of the square the man  dressed as a policeman had put his  head ou the cab window and had  called to hint act to go to the High  street police station, as he had been  instructed before, but to a certain  small public house in a by street near.  Outside this public house a motor car  was waiting in charge of a negro, and,  to the cabman's extreme astonishment  his two passengers alighted; the  negro and the policeman got inside  ths car, while Eira composed!"0* took  the driver's place and started off at  a good pace.  "Which struck me as precious  queer," said the cabman, "and struck  me all of a heap like, and I was so  took aback that when she called up  to me as cool as you like to know  the nearest way to Poplar, 1 couldn't  even speak a blessed wora. So she  aid as I was a great silly and buzzed  jff;  and it struck me as- ail so par*  motioning" angrily with his hand.  "This is the house," he said as they  came up to No. 19. "Get your key  and be quick and don't say ������ word."  Th*? caretaker managed to choke  down a new apology on which he had  tMa oa the point of embarking, and  began fumbling. clumsily with some  keys In his'hands. The lignt from the  lamp near shone on his face, and  Hugh thought he perceived a likeness  to Lord Ambrose's valet.  "Have you any sons, Sir. Hannah?"  he said,"~to the astonishment of his  two companions.  "No, sir," said Hannah, starting so  violently that he dropped the key he  was just Siting to the lock; "at least  I mean, yes, sir, but not at home; he  is a gentleman in service, sir���������with  a loriu sir."  "Confound it, Hugh, what are asking  auestions like that for?" grumbled  Mr. Hetherington. "Get that door open,  Hannah, and he quick about it."  Hugh made no reply; he had learnt  all he wanted-to know in ascertaining  that Lord Ambrose's valet was the son  of the caretaker of Birties street. This  was a fact "which explained at once,  the  valet's  knowledge  of the affair,*  and his possession of whatever it-was:  the two negroes had committed their  burglary to obtain.

Hugh and Mr. Hetherington asked  a few more questions without getting  any further information, ana then dte-  missed the cabman with a sovereign  and instructions to Keep ins tongue  still. The constable who had brought  hira remarked that it was a very small  clue, hut that men were already en-,  gaged in following it up.

"Why, there is someone hurt!"  Hannah exclaimed.  j-iugh pushed by him quickly and  entered the darkness of the small kitchen, where, the blinds close drawn,  only a dim oblique beam from the gas  lamp without penetrated by the partially open door. Mr. Hetherington  and Delia pressed close after him, and  the old man Hannah hung curiously  on the threshold, and on the ears of  them all the sound of the continued  formation "where they were going."  "One does not know," said Hugh  slowly. "Do you reinemoer that story  you told me of tho inventor with whom  you had had dealings, and who committed suicide at a house in Poplar?"  "By heavens!" said Air. Hetherington with a startled look; "that was  the very man I got the cipher from���������  as security for a loan."  "The address was ID Birties street,  In* Poplar?" asked Hugh. "Well, how  would it be to havea bit of dinner and  then make a call In Birties street?  Wc may draw blank, and probably  will; but then, again, we may not."  "All right," said Mr. Hetherington;  "it is an Idea. Hugh, this business  has more in it than 1 supposed."  "One does not well see where it will  end," said  Hugh somewhat gloomily.  They went into the dming room and  had something to eat. Delia joined  them; and when she understood what  tliey wore going to do, she insisted on  accompanying them. Very soon all  three of them started off. Mr. Hetherington had armed himself with a  revolver; and Delia would havo taken  mo, too, hut that Hugh objected to  the point of refusing to accompanying  thorn If --lto InRlKtfid on linr pistol.

"What the mischief did you put it  out for?" cried Mr. Hetherington angrily.  "Just send that caretaker of yours  away, will you?" said Hugh, "and then  come inside and shut the door."  Mr. Hetherington recognized the  wisdom of this advice, and with a vigorous word made Hannah disappear.  Then he shut the house door so that  they all stood in the heavy darkness  from which the groaning sounded  without creasing.  "Oh, do bo quick!" said Delia.  "I wonder if there Is gas?" said Hugh  and feeling over his head found a  burner pendant from the celling.  Turning the gas on lie lighted it.  The room was just such an ordinary kitchen as ono may see to any  poor man's house In any poor quarter  of London, except, perhaps, that  everything was clean and tidy to a  degree not always possible for tho  struggling poor to attain, oven whon  they endeavor for it.

"Hullo!"   cried  British Soldier Died as Bravely as  Brave Man Should  How -a straggling British soldier  was captured and shot by Germans  unjustly as a spy is narrated by a  United States war correspondent  who witnessed the execution.  "It happened at a village near  Nieuport, he says.' I was in my  quarters when 1 heard the soldiers  outside the door crying out 'Eng-  lisch! Knglisch!' l ran out and saw  some Uhlans bringing in a man  dressed in civilian clothes but wearing a khaki shirt.. He was unmistakably a British soldier. He was  a big, blonde fellow, woefully dirty,  unshaven, his hair all matted.  "Some of the German soldiers who  knew xunglisb pointed at him, shouting to me, 'Spy! Spy:' I followed,  the little procession as far as a  faramouse where the headquarters  of this German outpost were. . I  knew the fellow was English, you  know, and I wanted to see fair.  "They told me they had caught  him spying, and had taken_ a lot of  plans and notes away from him. I  didn't know anytfflhg about the  man myself, not even the name of  his regiment, except that I could  tell by his appearance' that he was  not an officer���������for all I know he  may simply have been one of the  English who were cut off in the retreat from Antwerp and was trying  to make the British or Belgian lines.  "They were in the house about an  hour. Then they brought him out,  just four men with loaded rifles and  an officer. He was not bound, but  walked quite free between his  guards, very straight and calm and  quite unmoved.  "At the sight of that Englishman  going to his death with eyes shining, head up and shoulders squared,  the tears fairly camo into my eyes.  I forgot all about being a neutral, all  about being an' American, and all  about the Germans and and just felt  I couldn't bear to see what was going  to come. As he passed me I said  aloud���������I felt I had to speak���������'Goodbye, old chap, and good luck!' He just  turned his head and looked at me and  smiled a. little smile as if to thank me  and to say he did not mind.  "They stood lilm up in the middle  of the road. Away in the 'distance,  down the road a German regiment  was coming along with noisy drums  and tifes. As the firing squad���������just  the four guards���������stood back to lake  up their position the Englishman  drew himself up at attention with a  click of the heels, braced his shoultl-  ors and threw up his head, game  and brave to the last. It was all  over in a second.  Part of the Durable  Rations Csi-ned  by   Soldiers  While  on  the  March  Every army in time of war carries  what  is called  war    bread,    which  forms a part of the durable rations,  and Is intended to be eaten if necessary while on the march.    The German  soldier    receives    for    his war  bread a zwieback, in. which are mixed  together 100  grammes  of raised  dough and 10 grammes of cooked rice  together with salt.   Beaten eggs and  sugar are added to the dough in order to improve its flavor, and to increase  the  nourishing    power.    The  proportion is 500 eggs    to    100 kilogrammes    of flour.    Finally,    potato  flour is used,    it is said, to prevent  the   bread   from   growing   stale   too  easily, and caraway seed gives it the  FRESH AIR NECESSARY  *nn������,A^^n*M������    cmf/)iril^a������  The Austro-Hungarian ' soldiers  carry their durable ration of bread  packed *ih small cotton bags.

In any  case, this bread does not taste as  good, nor is it as nourishing as the  Austrian bread, for the "piou-piou,"  as the French infantry man is called,  must be satisfied with a loaf which  is made "only of flour, yeast aad "water*  The war bread of the Italians and  Roumanians is very- similar to that  of Prance. It is, though, somewhat  darker and has a uniformly smooth  crust.      v..  The Swiss soldier carries his war  bread with him in a small paste-  aboard box. Each of these little packages contains five small loaves,  which weigh altogether only 250  grammes.  The light colored war bread of the  English is kept in good condition in  small soldered- tin boxes.  The Belgians give their soldiers a.  war bread made of flour, sugar and  eggs, each, loaf having forty punc-  {ures. Holes are also pierced through  the Turkish war bread, which is  made in round disks, having a diameter of 160 millimetres, and a very  thick brown crust.  Contribute*-!  by   Dr.  Heber  Jamicson(  Professor of Bacteriology in the  University of Alberta  Fresh air is au absolute essential  to good health. The lung takes from  the atmosphere one of its gases-^  oxygen, which is used to keep the  system in its normal state. Every  breath we tske in carries the necessary oxygen to the small air cells ia*  the lungs. Every breath we send out  is charged with another gas which is  thrown off by the body cells as waste  material.  .  The transfer of these two gases is  made between the lungs and the small  cells of which the whole body is made  by means of red corpuscles of "the  blood. These; little messengers must  be healthy .in order to. do- their work  well and sufficient numbers must be  maintained to give the best service.,,  Jt? a person becomes anaemic there is  a falling off in the numbersof the  red cells. As each one of these; caB  carry only & certain amount of oxygen at a tlHie the body, suffers in consequence of the diminished supply.  Every - room contains ; a. certain,  amount of oxygen: and when/.that is  exhausted the body suffers. The air  mhaled ^now^ contains the waste gas  which we have just disposed of and we  must therefore take it into our lunge  again and try to -impose this on th������  blood cells. They are not to be deluded and if the imposition is persisted in the person faints for lack of-the  life sustaining oxyt-tn.  The more people there' are breathing the same air the sooner it is vitiated. In the country the atmosphere  is more pure. It has been said that it  is kept pure by the farmers keeping  the foul air shut up in their houses.  What truth there may have been in  this statement,.as to the conservation  of impure air in the rural districts, the  reader can judge for himself. The  dweller in cities is no less a sinner  when he sleeps in a room with the  windows closed "because - the night  air Is bad" forgetting that night air  was designed for night breathing and  is   preferable   to   stale   day   air.

CRESTON, B.C.;- FRIDAY, FEB.   5  IS ^J-w   ���������Wife-pas**,   so  oq-ient of Progress  While it is generally recognized that the output of agricultural produce in British  Columbia is making year by  year a moid srowth it t-^kes  figures such as those concerning the Creston Valley to drive  home the extent to which the  business of producing food is  being developed in this  province.  Creston in 1914 shipped  out 70 carloads of farm produce. This total included  16,92* boxes of apples, as  compared with 12,752 in 1913.  17,807 crates of tomatoes,  against 12,752 crates in 1913,  and 1.683 of cucumbers asa-  inst 1,103 in the previous  year.  These figures are eloquent  of the great future which is  ahead of Creston and other  fertile agEWaltural districts of  Kootenay and Boundary where  the industry, especially as regards fruit and vegetables is  existing eonditio-as prevail.  For, after all, if the people already  on the land are not doing comfortably well it were a waste of time,  energy and money to endeavor to  induce others to take up any such  -unprofitable commercial pursuit.  To provide for the work without  any inerease in the yearly expenditure in the department might we  suggest cancelling for- 1915 the  short course schools or, better still,  to show their heart is in the right  place each one of the forty or forty-  two members in the legislature  might accept a 25 per cent* cut in  this year's sessional indemnity.  Further* the step will become &  source of popular dissatisfaction  before long if human nature is the  same in Germany as it is elsewhere.

Hence the shortage of foodstuffs  has begun to alarm, the German  *j^vcriMn*sntr,WjiGSo action, however,  will not reassure the people, the  humbler elates of whom will bow  begmtofeel acutely thedeprivation.  n-mca  In our news columns last week  we mentioned ihe fact that a move  was being made to hold a union  church service, in Creston on Sunday, February 14, to celebrate the  hundred years of peacebetween the  British Empire and the United  States.  In addition to the religious aspect  of the e^mmemoration of such a  notable national achievement a  request is made by the Casiadian  Peace Centenary Association that  educational propaganda on peace  be maiigurated in the schools���������to  demonstrate how the experience of  the two countries.named establishes  that all international disputes can  be settled without war.  The desire of the Association  seems to be that school teachers  shall take the opportunity presented by the approaching centennial  of the ratification of the Treaty of  Ghent to impress^upon their pupils  the lessons of the Hundred Years of  Peace.

CURRENT COMMENT  Prepare for the W orst  Getting Together  Fruitgrowers of Idaho, Oregon,"  Washington and Montana and sales  agencies, representing an output in  a normal year of 9,000,066 boxes of  apples, assembled at ah important  conference in Seattle on January  23rd.  The meeting was for the purpose  of endorsing or otherwise dealing  with the report of a committee previously appointed and which had  entered into certain tentative arrangements with the leading fruit  distributing agencies of ihe. northwestern-.states.  Among other things made and  provided is a central governing  body of three members, which will  supervise the entire apple industry  of the northwestern states, assist in  the expansion of the market and  maintenance of prices, and prevent  demoralization of Uie market by  underselling or injurious consignments.  While it is possible that the  growers in the states mentioned are  in a better position to talk business  to selling agencies than are the  British Columbia orchardists yet  their affluence in this respect cannot be so great as to render hopeless any such move by the growers  in this province.  Our American friends' example  Nhould be emulated. So long as  British Columbia has two dozen  (more or less) different fruit growers' unions selling fruit at as many  different prices just that long, and  no longer, will the prairie selling  agencies help set tho price and buy  direct or noil on coiiuigimiuiiij tut  conditions warrant.

The early BtageB of the war were  fearful enough, but are likely to  shrink into comparative insignificance' beside what this year has  in store.  Confidence in the ultimate success of the Allies is undiminished.  Circumstances will determine the  time; the result is not in doubt.

Few deportments of farming can  show a profit of 86 per cent, on capital  invested after deducting 6 per cent,  depreciation on building*' rwuV plant  and 10 per cent, on capital invested. I  am going on actual facts, as the above  1b what my small lot showed laet year,  svA If tlm nrlco of fowl hail boon at  normal rates it would have meant a  profit of B0 pen* cent., although the average price of oggs during tho year  X7Tjr, the r*-r*:i!!cnt I havo yot morle, via.  82 cents per dozen, which is very poor  compared to what < other places and  circles In British Columbia are avorng-  Nothing is charged in above account  for labor, but tho time- apont on poultry hi really very email, though It  must bo regular and methodical.

During the. four years IhaVebeen  keeping hens I have had the gratification (through gradually gained experience and care) of seeing- both the percentage of profit and the egg-average  jump upward each year. 1 remember  reading some time back of a farmer  who gave each of his children of responsible age some stock on condition  that each looked after his own, paid  for tht feed and got the profit. Several times it has oecured to me whether  something of the kind could not be  done here to interest the children. It  seems to me now that here' is the very,  thing. Let each father advance sufficient capital to his son or daughter to  build a small henhouse and also  enough to provide feed until the eggs  begin to come in. The capital would  be repaid as the profits were made.  Of course, there would be many failures; there are many who cannot exercise sufficient care or who have not  the will to learn how to muke liens  lay,' hut I think the experiment would  be worth trying.

The aged field marshal paid  visits to headquarters of divisions aad  those of the cavalry.   "At eacli place  two men from each unit, British aad  -Indian, -were drawn up for inspection,  and the field marshal paused here ana  there -with a kindly question, in Hindustani, which was keenly appreciated  by those -who had the honor to represent their corps.    Nearly every man  had come straight from the trenches;  but  in  spite  of  the    severe    strain  which they have undergone they looked keen, hard and soldierly. At each  halt Lord Roberts said a few words of  welcome and encouragement to the officers assembled to meet him, bidding  them as their colonel iu chief to remember that the Indian corps, the first  imperial contribution to the empire's  armies in the field, -would he joined  by other contingents one aad all determined to bring the struggle against  a powerful aad relentless enemy to the  only possible conclusion."

Hoover, chairman of the  American commission which is taking  charge of the Belgian, relief in Holland, has forwarded to Canada the  following statement of the urgent  heeds of the -famine-stricken people:  Tho American commission for relief  work in tfeigium, which is composed  of representatives of the United  States, Italy and Spain, acting under  the authority of ������H belligerent governments,, desire to express their appreciation of Canada's magnificent response  to Belgium's cry of distress. 'He gives  twice who gives quickly,' was never  better proven than it was by-Canada,  from which Dominion assistance was  quickly rendered.  "The difficulty of procuring food  supplies in Europe -and the necessities of the people in Belgium increase  almost proportionately, until the hope  cf help is gradually being narrowed  to reliance upon the generosity of  those who. live on the North American continent. Thousands of tons of  supplies, including those brought by  the Nova Scotian ship Tvemorvah,  have ben distributed, yet there are  pitiful requests for assistance from  small and large Belgian villages,  "To supply the actual necessities  of the seven million people remaining in Belgium, reliable authorities  estimate that 80,000 tons of foodstuffs  will-be required throughout the winter.  What Is most needed is wheat, flour,  com, cornmeal, beans, peas, potatoes,  biscuits bacon and money.  The freight aad all shipping expenses on every cargo of such supplies "will gladly be paid by the commission for relief, who will also pay  all expenses incurred in the actual  distribution of the supplies in Belgium.  "Canada, with her great resources,  is in a splendid position to help. She  has already done much, but we do  not hesitate in these appalling circumstances to ask her to do more.  (Sgd.) "HERBERT C.

As a i*esult of the rapid progress  now being maue with the tunneling  operations, tho contractors "are now  confident that they will put the Rogers' Pass tunnel through, several  months earlier than their contract  with the Canadian Pacific calls for.  The five mile, double tracked passage  though the base of Mount Macdonald  is to be ready, according to the terms  of the firm's agreement by the end  of 1910. At the present rate of projection it is estimated that the tunnel  will be completed in the summer of  1916.  There remains 10,000 feet of the;  "pioneer" shaft yet to be driven, 10,-  640 -feet having already been bored.  At the west end of construction 817  feet of the preliminary shaft ,and 640  feet of the main passage was excavated last month. Prom the eastern portal 527 feet of the former and 588 feet  of the latter was. projected.  Although "the work haff been well  advanced the hardest art of the actual  boring has yet to be done. Mr. Dennis states that the next two miles  through the heart of the mountain  will have to be dug out of a particularly hard kind of rock.  ���������u  OIJF DISTEMPER :������������������-;m^r  -^      Can be handled very easily.

Child Prodigies a danger  Precocity   indicates  One-Sided   Development  Says Lewis M. Terman in. the  Forum:  All writers on the precocity of genius have noted the frequency with  wliich it ig confined to particular lines,  while in other respects there may be  no unusual promise. The mathematical prodigies, for example are, as a  class, notoriously one-sided in their  ability, as are also the wonder children of music and the stage. The precocity of the latter is confined chiefly  to  their  emotional  development.  The narrowing o. interests and talents is always an event to be deplored, and against its premature appearance parents and teachers should religiously stand- guard. Sometimes  children who could be fitted for quiet  and useful lives ars "staged" on account of some insignificaht Sift of nature, such as ability to perform feats  of memory or -of arithmetical calculation, with the result that all tho  other interests atrophy and the personality dries up. The emotions become distorted, and nothing remains  but a caricature of what a human being should be.

"The chief of police told me," said  Mr. Lens, "that C5 civilians were  loeked in a church and told that they  would be shot within 30 minutes.  Every five minutes a soldier would  enter to remind the unfortunate that  they had so many minutes left to live.  When the half hour bad expired, all  were brought out led before a file of  soldiers and lined up in a row.  "Some wished to cover their eyes,  but the soldiers forced down their  arms with bayonets. They were kept  in this agony of suspense for another  half an hour, before the order was  given to fire. So fierce were the repeated volleys that the dead were  hardly recognizable. Any who showed signs of life were promptly despatched either with the butt end of a  rifle, or a bayonet.

But few words need be spent upon  *he military aspects of   the,: inatter.  That the French araaysurprised the  world, is generally admitted; .And it  2s worth   while   noting;   upon   what  point admiration of it    has focused.  This was its   -splendid recovery ;ox  spirit after initial defeats.   That was  scarcely looked   for.   When German  army after; German army drove back  ihe French in August,    when ? there  were evidences of   uncertainty    and  confusion    in    the . French.. military  plans, when -more .than one French  general in command-was guilty of in-  sompetence or worse, it looked as if  the boasts of the German bulletins  might be better justified than we like  to admit, and that "Gen. Joffre's army  was incapable of   further resistance."  But all this was  soon proved false;  The morale of the French army reasserted itself promptly; and the valiant .and determined and inexpugnable front which it has since opposed to the Germans has wrung tributes from even.';: the enemy. The  transformation, of the dashing French  trooper into the. soldier with it bull-  ���������dog grip has . been described bjy the  president of the French republic. "As  the course of -the hostilities has gone  its way," wrote M. Pbincare to the  minister of war, "the French soldier,  while losing nothing of his impetuosity and ccurage, has learned by experience to adapt hfs natural qualities  to the demands of the military operations. He maintains an unequalled  power on the offeiisive and at the  same time schools himself in patience  and in tenacity." The known facts  bear out the assertion.  It is, however, mainly the manifestation of French national character  away from the actual fighting that  kindles admiration. Even the ardent  lovers of France could hardly have  counted upon so fine an exhibition.  Most of the traits which we prover- _  blally and all   too   lightly   associate I York Evening Post.

The princes of  Moscow, in assuming the burden_ cf  collecting tho tribute paid to the iar-  tar Khans, had become the most pow-  c;;.*.u*.   ovivemgMg   \sz.   til"   VJU������virf.       r Ui  two centuries they, aided by the Tartar armies, labored to subdue the principalities." Finally, "in the sixteenth  century1 the great princes of Moscow  became free from the Tartar dominion  and Ivan TV  that i3 king (1547). The true Russia henceforth is at the easti the  country of the Volga river, Greater  Russia. The village of Moscow, built  at the foot of the citadel of the Kremlin, became the capital of the new  empire:":  ment which is proposed. It amplifies ,the; intention of the .government  to keep under arms at all times ii  Canada a force of 50,000 men.

The  Germans havo up tc the present been  able to make good their iosses, to  continue, to deliver repeated blows  with fresh men whon required ahd  where required, and to concentrate  largo forces, in different directions. It  is true that a considerable proportion  of the masses recently thrown into  the field against the British has consisted of easily trained and Immature mon; but the groat fact remains  that these ill assorted levies have not  hesitated * to advance against highly  trained troops.

To illustrate the present martial  ardor of the Indian the Maharaja told  the pathetic story*of his own military  secretary. After bidding farewell to  his master, this seci'etary assembled  his family and close friends. He said  good bye to them and then shot himself dead, overcome with anguish that  he could not accompany his master to  the field of battle.  Tho Maharaja is the fixth of tho  Indian princes who have left India on  active military service. He is the  adopted son of the celebrated. Sir  Pertah Singh. ,   *  All peoples Und creeds in India are  united today in enthusiasm for the  causo of the. empire, he said.      *<  "Every Indian, old and: young, would  most gladly respond to tho King-Emperor's call. As only a comparatively  small number of mon may go to the  battlefield at present, many officers  and Indians of high birth nr*j going in  the ranks.

Modern Surroundings _ ^  The number oi* Indians in Canada  remains approximately at one hundred  thousand,-according to the annual;report of: the. Department of Indian Affairs. The actual population/including Eskimos, is placed at 107,221, an  apparent decrease of 2,718 as com-^  pared with the previous, year. This,  however, does not mark ah actual decrease in numbers by death or emigration, but is due to, the fact that it is  difficult to secure accurate statistics  for the interior of the far north, and  it was thou&iit best to eliminate from  the census returns that were merely  conjectural. ���������>  In Manitoba for the year there was  a decrease of 532, in New Brunswick  14, and in Prince Edward Inland 4. In  Ontario the Indian population increased by :?42, British Columbia 198,  Yukon 138, Quebec 93, Saskatchewan  80, Alberta 52, an \ Nova Scotia 32.
