B. Embree to  membership, the \ president's address followed. It was a brief  statement of the year's progress in  the Creston Valley, with special  emphasis on the necessity of the  various boards of trade throughout  the province taking united action  to have tiie minister of trade and  commerce and other government  officials do a little- overtime hustling to secure for British Columbia  a far larger share of the export  lumber business within the empire,  lis this connection' Mx������ li-eid said;  "The lumber industry in British Columbia was hit hard, our local company, The Canyon "City Lumber Company.' only   shipping    thirteen   cars  rtni>in������r iX������o Incf rooj  1 will here give you some figures on  the lumber export to Australia during  the last year and which, to my mind,  evevy board of trade iri the province  should impress on the powers that be  the necessity of ojar minister of trade  and commerce securing for our lumbermen the export trade to Australia  which Idaho- and Washington has enjoyed during the past year.

In 1913 the expenditure- by the"lumber industry of British Columbia  reached ~the-great .aggregate of $16,  753,000. Under move favorable conditions respecting the export trade this  sum would be greatly.augmented.  The export trade of British Columbia is hampered by several factors.

"Jones is getting .������200, I believe, at  present," observed Hugh.  ������"My dear lad," said Mr. Hetherington gravely, "you must not he unreasonable���������you cannot expect to start  at the rate of pay earned by a man  who has served me well and faithfully for twenty years."  Mr. Hetherington rose as he spoke  and stood with his back to the fire-  ��������� place, looking down severely yet not  unkindly at his seated nephew. He  was a short, rather stout, hut powerfully-built man, with heavy features,  dark thick curly hair, a snub nose, and  thick lips. He were a thin, straggling  beard that he was very proud of for  some reasons, and his general appearance was that of a fairly prosperous  tradesman in a rather small way ol  business. Only his eyes, alert and  very bright, and his extremely big and  prominent    chin, conveyed  the least  suggestion that here was one of the  most daring and successful financiers  of tho day.  "Well, what do you say, by hoy?"  he asked, genially.   "If you do fail to  pull   through,   how   would   you   like  Jones's job'.'"  "I  am   very  much   obliged,"     said  Hugh rising, "but you can find some  other poor devil to sweat for   E2 a  week on  a   ������t  a  week job. Do yon  know, uncle, there are times when 1  could thank God that there is not rt  drop of your blood in my veins?"  * "Good thing for you if you had," returned Mr. Hetherington with undisturbed good-humor, for he was in fact  as absoiutt-ly good-tempered as he was  perfectly selfish and callous, though  his good  temper  was  Hnhte    to    he  broken by Jits of extreme rage,    "if  you had some of my blood, my boy.  you might know enough to soize your  opportunities when they camo to you.  Plenty of young men would lie glad  to pay mi* n premium to get into my  office; but. think about It, think about  it.    1 will keep Jones's job open for  vou for n time, and a trip through the  bankruptcy court often brings about  a good many changes in a man's mind.  Shall we go utid hud Delia?   Perhaps  she will give us some tea if we can't  cautiously towarus her, and remembering that a flask of brandy and some  biscuits were generally kept in the  car in readiness for any emergency,  he looked tov them, managed to find  the flask of brandy, fortunately still  unbroken, and forced a drop or two between her teeth.    To his intense re-  round.  "What has happened?" she asked;  "where are we?"  "There has been an accident," said  Hugh, and even as the last word passed his lips he knew it was not true.  Delia sat tip, pushing away the  brandy flask with an impatient gesture.    *  "I don't want that stuff," she said.  "What have they been doing to you?"  "Eh?" said Hugh, looking down at  himself.  (To he Continued)  WHY BRITAIN IS AT WAR'  The    Causes   "and   the Issues, in  Brief   Form,   From the Diplomatic Correspondence and  Speeches of Ministers  (By Sir Edward Cook)  Hugh stirred his tea thoughtfully,  and it was a moment or two before  he replied.  *'I think I saw that car in coming  here," he remarked then; "in fact,  tne bread and cheese eating negro  was the tramp 1 had my skirmish  with."  "Really," exclaimed Delia looking  at him sharply. "Strange!"  But Mr. Hetherington had been  thinking of something else.  "Did you take a return ticket,  Hugh ?" lie asked. "If you did, you  can give it me, if you are goinc back  with us. Then my secretary can apply for a refund from the railway.",  "Good gracious, papa!" cried Delia  ii*i o������ tisntly.  "Why not, my dear?" said her father, mildly surprised; "there . is no  need to make presents to the railway  company, is thero? It can go towards  the motor up-keep account."  "Yes, indeed," said Hugh, handing  over his return ticket.  "The secret of success," said Hetherington sententiously, "lies in never  neglecting trifles.    Remember,    that,  Hugh, and never neglect any opportunity that comes your way, however  small it may seem."  "I won't!" said Hugh.  Orders hod been given for a motorcar to be got reatfy, the housekeeper  had   bee   informed   that   the   dinner  then cooking need not be served, and  a little before six o'clock a big motorcar was brought round to the front  entrance.   Hugh and Delia took their  place, and Mr. Hetherington, who was  an expert and somewhat reckless driver, and who always acteuV<as his own  chauffeur,  took  the  steering wheel;  and then all being ready, tho big car  and its throe passengers glided away.  "I wonder if wo shall see that ZZ  car hanging about," remarked Delia,  "the woman in its is so carefully wrap-  pod up,  I'm  just awfully curious to  sco hor face."  Hugh started slightly, tho words  jumped so aptly with his own  thoughts.  "I don't think I over saw a car  driven by a nigger before," ho remarked; "niggers are seldom much  good with machinery."  "This man looked like a European  except for his color," said Doha; "1  expoct ho is half white. Look, thero  iti tho wood, that in where I generally  see tho car, Just round tho corner."  "Uncle is going at a good pace," remarked Hugh.  "J hate a slow driver," said Dolia,  It was a reflection of the first of political philosophers that* disturbances  in States, though they may arise on  trifling occasions, do not involve trilling issues. "The present world-wide  war started from the case of Servia,  but involved even from the start,  much larger issues. If only a dispute  between Servia and Austria-Hungary  had been in question, Britain, as Sir  Edward Grey repeatedly stated, would'  have had no conesS'ii ia the affair. But  since, as we shall see, this dispute  was bound to have ulterior consequences, it is necessary to understand  what the dispute was about.  Servia is a small, but very ancient,  kingdom in the Balkan peninsula. It  obtained considerable accesion of .territory as the result-of the recent wars  in the Balkans, the war between the  Balkan States and Turkey, and then  the war among the Balkan States  themselves. The Servian people are  akin, in race and religion, to the Slavs,  of which race Russia is the predominant power, and to which race    also  trian annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Aggression by Austria upon  Servia was certain to be regarded by  Russia with the utmost alarm and in^  oignation. During the Balkan crisis  the Russian foreign minister "had  made it clear to the Austrian government that war with Russia must inevitably follow an Austrian attack on  Servia. It was clear that Austrian  dom: .ation of Servia was as intoler-  ��������� able for Kussia as the dependence of  the Netherlands oh Germany would be  to Great Briain." "It must be obvious,"  said Sir Edward Grey in the house of  commons July 27, "to any person who  reflects upon the situation that the  moment the dispute ceases to be one  between Austria-Hungary and Servia  and becomes one in which another  great power is involved, it can but end  in the greatest catastrophe that has  ever befallen the continent of Europe  at one blow; no one can say what  would be the limit of the issues that  might be raised by such. a conflict."  War between Russia and Austria, in a  cause wherein Germany had supported  the latter must involve Germany as  her ally, and France would be drawn  in as the ally of Russia; The action oi  Austria and Germany in the case ot  Servia was thus likely to challenge a  iouropean war. England and France  and Russia saw this. Italy the ally of  Austria and Germany, saw ii aiso.  When the general war was breaking  out,   the  Italian  government,   . being  purpose of 'discovering ah issue which  wculd prevent complications." The  invitation was accepted by France and  Italy. The uerman foreign secretary  "could not fall in with the suggestion,  desirous though he was to co-operate  for the maintenance of peace" (July  '������W\ .���������>��������� ' ���������'W;������fc' "     '   '  ���������������/��������� ..;���������..---  Sir Edward Grey thereupon saw the  German, ambassador (July 27) and  promised "as long as Germany would  work/to keep the peace I would keep  closely in touch. I repeated that after  the Servian reply It was at Vienna that  some moderation must be urged." On  the following day (July 28) Austrian-  Hungary declared war on Servia.  As the German government was understood to have accepted "in principle," theV idea of mediation by the  four powers between Austria and Russia, it was proposed "that the German  secretary of state should suggest the  lines on which���������������������������" this principle should  be applied." The German, government  made no suggestion of the kind;  Sir Edward Grey's scheme had temporarily been in abeyance-, as the Russian government had offered! to^ discuss matters with the Austrian government direct.' This offer was de*  clined by Austria (July 28).  Sir Edward Grey next appealed to  the German chancellor. "If he can  induce Austria to satisfy Russia and.to  abstain from going so far as to come  into collision with her, we shall all  join in deep gratitude to his excellency  for having saved the'peace of Europe"  (July 29). The Italian government had  simultaneously appealed to Germany  in a like sense.  On that same day the German government made certain proposals to  Great Britain to which we shall come  presently and which the prime minister afterwards characterised as "infamous." But so persistent was the  British government in pursuit of peace  that Sir Edward Grey in declining the  proposals used language of great restraint (July 30), and accompanied  his refusal by yet another "most earnest" appeal to the German chancellor;  "The one way'of maintaining the good  relations between England aud Germany is that they should continue to  work together to preserve the peace  of Europe; if we succeed in this object, the mutual relations of Germany  and England will, I believe, be ipso  facto improved and strengthened. For  ���������that object his majesty's 'government  will work in that way with all sincerity and good-will. And I will say this:  If the peace of Europe can be preserved, and the present crisis safely  asked to state its intentions, replied: , , ..,- ,     .-  "The war undertaken bv Austria, and Passed, my own endeavor will J?e to  the" consequences" which' might result, Promote some arrangement to Axhiet*  had, in the words of the* German ambassador himself, an aggressive object. Both were therefore in conflict  with the purely defensive character of.  the Triple Alliance, and in such circumstances Italy would remain neutral." "We were fujly conscious," said  the German, government itself, "that a  possible warlike procedure by Austria*  Hungary against Servia might bring  Russia upon tne scene and so involve  us in war. in accordance with our  duties as Allies." "As far Germany,"  said the-German ambassador at Vienna to the British, "she knew very well  what she was about in backing up Austria-Hungary in this matter."  Foreseeing all this, Sir Edward  Grey, whose efforts during the recent  Balkan wars had won :or him the  title ���������- of the Peacemaker of Europe,  was early in the field with proposals  for averting war, and the British go-v-  many of the subjects of Austria-Hun-  lur^e ���������e war, anu me eriusn gov-  gary belong.    On June 28, 1914, "the  1���������*??? 'Xe,ff Lt2?,t������ ,5e JeV IaS^  crime at Serajevo"   was   committed,  momeatt of the last hour in that great  - J -    - '  and beneficient but unhappily frustra  ted purpose" (Mr. Asquith).  Already on July 20, having received an inkling of what was on foot, Sir  Edward Grey spoke to the German  ambassador of the importance, if the  peace of Europe was to he preserved,  of Austria "keeping, her demand within reasonable limits." The suggestion  was not adopted. The German foreign  secretary "considered it inadvisable  that the Austro-Hungarian government should bo approached by the  German government on the matter"  (July 22). The Austrian ultimatum,  which the same minister "admitted  that the Servian government could  not swallow," was despatched on tho  following day.  On July 211, having hoard from tho  Austrian ambassador an outline of  what the Austrian note contained, Sir  Edward Grey pressed upon him, as  also upon the uorman government,  the desirability o������ persuading tiio Austrian government to extend its lime  namely,* tho murder of the heir-apparent to the throne of Austria-Hungary  and his consort in the capital'of Bosnia. That province, once a part of the  ancient Servian kingdom, had fallen  into the possession of the Turks; the  administration o������ it had been given to  Austria, by the Berlin Treaty after the  Russo-Turkisli war, in 1878; and in  1908 Austria had annexed it. The Austrian government alleged (hut has not  proved) that the crime Of Serajovo  was a culminating point in r. "subversive movement" organized by the  Servian government "with the object  of detaching a part of the territories  of Austria-Hungary from the Monarchy." On July 28 the Austrian government addressed an ultimatum to  Servia. Austria had boon "left a perfectly free hand" by Germany. It was  admitted by Sir Edward Grey that  "one naturally sympathized with many  of tho requirements of the ultimatum,"  and that "the murder of the Archduke and come of the eirenmstaneos  respecting Servia quoted in the (Aus-|umit. Tho Russian government took  trian) note aroused sympathy with the same line. The German ambus-  Austria."

But thero woro two  features  in  the Austrian  ultimatum  which caused alarm and    regret   to  those who desired to bog the peace  of Europon maintained.   Tho first was  tbo inclusion of a time-limit, so short,  (forty-eight hours) as to loavo diplomacy llttlo time to avert war. Tho second was that what Austria demanded  within   48 hours was not a reply but  tho reply dictated by Austria. "I had  never oorore noon," tmld Sir Eawiud,  "ono state address  to another independent state a documont of so formidable a character." The Gorman foreign  Heo.rotary "admitted that the Servian  government could not swallow curium  of  the  AtiKtro-IIiingnrlan    uomandn."  Sir Edward Uroy advised Servia to go  to tho furthest possible point In mooting those demundu, and similar advice  was fflvon to her by Franco and Russia.  Tho Sorvlnn government replied,  within the appointed time, coucedtm*;  the Rroator part of the Austrian demands.   The conceded demands were  of a very uliiiiKont character.

On July 24, havng received the text  of tho Austrian ultimatum, and foreseeing that If Austria attackod Servia,  Russia  would mobilize, Sir    Edward  Groy propuuud that "G;,nr.;.;;y, I^anoo,  Italy and Groat Britain, who had not  direct Interests In Sorvla, should act  together for tho sake of peace, simultaneously In Vionna .and St.  Peters-  burjr," "m tho vvtui vi ihe >7.*h<I!<.-<���������*  botwnon Austria and Russia becoming  hroatenhtg." "It would be very desirable," ho said to the Gorman ambas-  sudor, "o get Austria not to precipitate military action and.so gain more  time,   nut none of us could inllnenco  AuMtrla In  this direction unless Oer-  many would propose and .participate  hi nuoh action at Viounu."

On the following day (July 31) Sit  Edward Grey gave proof of his  sincerity and made a further effort for  peace.   "I said to German ambassador  this  morning that if Germany could "  get any reasonable proposal put* forward which made it clear that Germany and Austria were striving to preserve European peace, and that Rus- '  sia and France would be.unreasonable  if they rejected it, I would support.it  at St. Petersburg and Paris,   and so  the length of, saying that if Russia and  France would not accept it his majesty's government would have nothing  more to do with the consequences." In  order not to leave this promise in the.  region   of  generalities.   Sir  Edward  Grey threw out a particular sugges- ���������  tion.    "The  stumbling-block hitherto  has been Austrian   mistrust   of Servian assurances, and Russian mistrust  of Austrian intentions with regard to  the independence and integrity of Servia."   If Germany would sound Vienna,      Sir   Edward   would   sound   St.  Petersburg whether it would bo possible for the four disinterested powers to offer to Austria to undertake  to Bee that she obtained full satisfaction for her demands on Servia pror  vided . they.-did. not   impair   Servian  sovereignty and the integrity of Servian territory.   That Russia was ready  to  accept   such  a ,solution   is   clear  from a peace-formula which her government     had  drawn  up  in  concert  with   Sir  Edward  Grey;    Everything  turned on Germany,   On that day. ������ho  sent an ultimntr.m to Russia.  In tho oarly morning of August 1  (!U0 a.m.) tho King of England and  Ills ministers made a last attempt to  secure peace.   The  king tolograplied  a personal  mesBUgo  to  tho  Tsar.  In  this  tho king first sot out the text  of  a   communication   from   tho- German government.   Tho Tsar had previously requested the Gorman emperor  to modlato betwoen Russia and Austria, and had "given most categorical  assurances  to  the Emporor, 'William  that RuuhJuii troops would not mova  no long  as    mediation    negotiations  continued." The Gorman government  In Its communication statod that th*  cmpoi-or was dcairoua to modlato and  complulnod that such mediation wa������  frustrated  by  tho   Russian mobilization.    King Goorgo wont on to say  that he was "most anxious not to mlo������  imy n/tcmiidiity of avoldln/r the torrlbto  calamity which threatens tho whole  world;" he nppoalod  to tho Tsar to  removo any misapprehension   which  might havo occurred; he proffered hi*  rrood nfflcwi "to rirnlf't 1*n r^onnrdni** th*  Interrupted    conversations    botwoea  the powers concerned." The Tsar replied on the same day, "I would gladly  havo uccoptcd your proposals had not  the  German. ambassador this   aftor-  noon presented a note to my,; bov ens*  went, declaring war."

' The improvements at the passenger and freight terminals at - the  Windsor-station are- marked by bulk  and efficiency/ 'Th'S^tram shed, which  is just completed, is one of the largest  of the most mpdern^ types now in use.  At the same lime the improvements  at Place Viger,-which have been in  hand for three* year's, are now completed. These, in their entirety, of  station, hotel and trackage, cost nearly $5,000,000.  The union station at Quohec has  been commenced.- There was the  double track bridge at Lachine which  icos't. nearly $3,000,000; the neW Lake  "Shore Line which was opened for,  Lridiicin.nine: the new station' and  viaduct at Toronto which are only  held up temporarily; the extension of  the Kippewa Branch line 10 miles ia  a northerly direction: a 30-mile extension from Expanse to' a'junction with  the Weyburn-Sterling branch of the  C.P.R., and which will be completed  this fall; the line between Swift Current and Empress, a distance of 112  miles, and which will be completed  this year; the main line cut off from  Swift Current to Bassano of which 150  miles are completed; the 78 miles cf  the C.P.R. branch from Lacombe to  Kerrobert, a new extension; the operation of the Alberta-Central Railway  to Loehern, a distance of ,65 miles  from Red Beer; the great tunnel at  Jttoger s Jfass; and of which o������e mile  of the pioneer tunnel had been completed; the C.P.R. depot and terminal  offices at Vancouver; the Kootenay  Central which is now Open for traffic,  from GoIdenV 60. tailes south.

Tho CJP.R. is interested in the Kettle Valley Railway, and in connection  with the same it is building a line  from Midway to Penticton���������a distance  of 134 miles, 76 of which are already  open for traffic. A line from Penticton to Osprey, 41 miles in length, has  been completed, and work has been  commenced on a new line between Osprey Lake and Princeton. The Kettle  Valley Railway is also building a line  54 miles in length between Hope and  Otter Summit.

To cure any of these troubles  you must get right down to the root  of the trouble in the blood, and jthat  is just what Dr. Williams' Pink Fills  do. They .make new, rich blood and  thus cure these diseases when common medicine fails. Mrs. John Jackson, Woodstock, Ont., suffered from  i both nervous troubles and a run  down condition and experienced a  complete cure: through the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. She.,,says: "I  was a sufferer for a number of years  from neuralgia and a general debility of the nerves and system.

I threw my gun  to my shoulder and fired, but an instant late, for just as I pulled the  trigge'r he dropped out of sight behind  the rocks. The dogs saw him, how*  ever, and the chase was on. Mr. Bear  turned "into tire brush and down th^  gulch he came, with both dogs close  at his heels. Close to the Rancher  they-crashed through, the thick undergrowth���������so thick that it was difficult  to determine which was bear and  which was dog. The Rancher got in  several shots, but with no effect. Down  the mountain we ran, dogs and bear  in the lead, everybody yelling to encourage the dogs and in the %ope of  scaring the bear up a tree. Breathless  and weary, we finally got to the dogs,  who were lying down under a tree,  'all in' and no bear in sight. His pace  had been too hot for our unhardened  pups and he had escaped." (Now hear  the conclusion of the matter). "It was  the Rancher's first bear and he was  much disappointed hot to get him. We  were all agreed that it was the best  sport that we had had in a long time,  hence were pretty Well:;. satisfied."  ' It was "the Rancher's first bear,"  even though it escaped.

In. the detail of horse equipment  one must remember that only-  horses of a certain class are suitable, and even these are unfit until  they have become "battle wise,"  which they only become after considerable training.  jni"ts. gem-a* way most* oi us con  answer the above question, something like this: We are at war because in order to invade- France  Germany invaded Belgium, the  neutrality of which country we are  pledged to respect.  But, to quote the Victoria Colonist, this leads to a series of questions: Why did Germany invade  France? Germany invaded France  because France refused to cease  preparations for mobilization.  Why did France prepare for  mobilization? Because she had reason to believe that Germany and  Austria" contemplated *&n attack:  uoon her allv. Ruh������������������-  Dismissing aii the details set out  in the diplomatic correspondence  and conversations, one chief fact  emerges from them, namely, that  in July last Germany was absolutely prepared for war, and her agres-  sive policy demanded that she  should make war while her opponents were unprepared for it.  The_new military programme of  France and Russia would, if time  were allowed for them to be carried  out, place Germany and Austria at  TT*  ^.C    1 ., Z~  i.V,S������4w     .���������.*  one vaiug, anu tne supply or norties  immediately available for service is  another.

The number of animals killed in  battle is great; but probably the  number that break down is far  greater. Horses, to stand up under  hard work, must have plenty of  regular food and frequent opportunity of resting.  Granting the German fleet continues bottled up  and the importation of horses continues impossible ;  remembering    that    the   Kaiser's  chief source of supply will be Austria, and not forgetting the difficulty of maintaining hordes of  horses  I in the winter  time,   it will  not be  j surprising to learn of the camplete  \ paralysis of  large divisions of the  i Germany  army  for lack of these  animals.  1   COMMOOIOU������  J'.'"   - ^SAMPLE '    ,  ACl***?   ������������X������jr I'Ulllft     *������������������������������***       AVVrKSbO       *������������U       -WW***^  mercial paper within her ' own  boundaries and compel her factory  magnates and tradespeople to  accept it at its face value, she cannot work that game on those neutral countries from which she is  importing considerable in the shape  of food supplies and munitions of  war.

She can gold brick her  own people, thanks to the army,  but she cannot impose green goods  upon the United States, to mention  one important neutral.  a CtisSiQ vantage- volujjShsg witn  those powers. Therefore, if German hegemony was to be established  it was necessary to strike at her  rivals before they were fully prepared to resist.  That this will be the verdict of  history we have no doubt at all. If  the result of the war should be the  establishment of German supremacy, it would be claimed and justly  so for the Kaiser  that  he saw the  Losses About Equal  Of the making of statistics there  is no end���������nor, apparently, of the  subjects on which a statistician can  make computations���������and the present war seems to be a fertile field  for those of a statistical turn.  The   Colonist's . manipulator   of  figures has just demonstrated that  the casualties of the French, Germ-  Opportunity was  ripe  for securing a������ asd British   armies now at the  it"'and struck ��������� before his adversaries  had time to get ready.  Germany invaded France in the  belief that she could repeat her  triumph of 1870, aud then be ready  to overwhelm Russia. To accomplish this it was necessary to violate  the neutrality of Belgium, and this  act forced us into war.  Whether or not we would have  gone to war in any event need not  be discussed. We are only concerned with what has happened,not  with what might have occurred.  Horses a Factor  Still another factor looms up that  must he reckoned with in determining the result of the present war,  and that is the supply of horses.  Horses are specially required by  the cavalry, the artillery and for  tho transport branch. To date we  have seen no estimate of how many  are in une on either side, but the  number must bo enormous.  Tho International Encyclopaedia  '-ditioii of 1002, givos some statistics which, though probably too  low for the present war will give  some idea of the number of horses  required.  Great Britain���������29,257 regular  cavalry, 10,000 yeomanry, Anglo-  Indian 25,400. The number of  iiun'iw" in the United Kingdom wiih  put. at 8,000,000, of which 70,000  wi*������v ������aid to be  fit for oavidry pnr-  front  are exactly twenty per cent,  in each case.  His findings are as follows: Germany with 4,000,000 meiv in the  field has suffered a loss of 800,000  men killed, seriously wounded and  missing. Great Britain with 300,-  000 men has lost 60,000 men of all  ranks according to recent reports,  and France with 2,000,000 men has  lost 400,000 men.  Enlarging on this theology it  would seem to be sane reasoning to  assume that seeing the warring  nations above enumerated having  lost twenty per cent of their fighting strength in four months' campaigning the war at its worst can  only last another sixteen months,  and that the nations that can bring  up the largest reinforcements are  certain of victory; all of which goes  a long way towards oxplaing the  insistent demand of Lord Kitchener  for men and still more men until  the enemy is crushed.  Whatever way the loaeeB of tho  different armios are computed it is  evident that, proportionately speaking, the amount of bloodshed is  greater than in any previous war.  Statistics of the past show that  of those who aro engaged in battle  one out of every eight is either  killed, wounded or aro missing,  whereas in  the  present war   tho  Franco���������70,121 cavalry of all  rank* ; horwoH i <iqumvl W mobiliza-*  ������.iaii, '150,000. ���������',."���������.'���������������������������''  HiiHHia���������147,5!10 regular cavalry,  including CoHMaekH, with a luwerve  of 70,000.

My understanding of an arrangement of numbers that is popular in  town was that in evidence on New  Year's night, and taking it by and  large there was no fault to find with it  ���������by the youngerz-feet���������though to those  travelling along at about middle age,  for instance, with some of these it was  felt that the menu was a little shy on  what old-fashioned people commonly  call "square" dances.  Ido not propose to expound or expand on the merits or weaknesses of  either the ���������'square' or "round" styles  of tripping the light fantastic. Offhand we would say the authorities are  mostly with those who insist on the  numbers wheie no "caller off" is required. Take the waltz, for instance,  who has forgotten the one-time  popular  Waltz me around again, Willie I  Around 1 Aroimd I  Around 1  The music is dreamy;  Its peachy and creamy.  Oh don't let my feet touch the ground I  Or, concerning the two step hasn't  popular opinion -been aptly expressed  by another ragtime specialist, something after this fashion���������  I'd rather two ������tep than waltz, Bill I  I'd rather two step than eat I  Waltzing is fine, but a two step for  mine���������  I'd rather two stop than sleep I  But notwithstanding the somewhat  abundant supply of literary opposition  of a sort in favor of tho waltz, two  stop, et al I respectfully submit that  out of deference to some of the older  attendants nt theso functions an occasional set of lancers might bo introduced, and hero and there an old-time  quadrillo given a place���������always provided that there aro enough present  to make up tho "head" couples for  each set, so that tho mixups and  breakdowns will not bo too much in  evidence.  No ono will seriously dony tho beauty of a sot of lancers; tho various figures that constitute it give ample  scope to demonstrate tho poetry of  motion at its highest standard. It is  ali*o a number that thono none too  proficient at 'round' dancing can toko  part in without Iohs Of dtp-nity���������If tliep  aro troubled that way.

This is  attached'to the inner side of tho vessel's hull and is capable of transmit;  ting a note through the water, a distance of more than 25 miles.  The sound-'waves aro produced in  tho oscillator by the vibration of a  diaphragm., which obtains its motion  from electrical impulses induced in a  cylinder of copper inside a casing,  suspended iu an electromagnet. The  sounds are received by a similarly  constructed mechanism' of reverse  action.

In  some districts in Eastern Canada,  nearly everything has been shipped  out of the country, except dairy eews.  This export trade, together with many  farmers selling their calves for veal,  can have .but one result, in Canada,  viz.: a greater scarcity of meat than  a't present exists, even, in a normal  market.  The meat industry itt Canada should  not be allowed to dwindle���������rather,, the  production of hogs, sheep and cattle  on Canadian farms should be greatly  increased. To obtain this increase  does not mean that farmers should devote their whole attention to live  stock. The majority of farmers will  admit that with very little extra effort and expense they could increase  by several head the live stock on  their farms without in any way Interfering with their present system of  farming.  From reports to the commission of  conservation, .present conditions indicate a- world-wide scarcity ot live  stock, with little likelihood of an  over-crowded market for many years  to come. 'The opportunity for Canadian farmers is, therefore, apparent.

It would appear  that even the educated and best informed of the more intelligent class cf  the  German  people  have    been  deceived by the Kaiser, and the military  party,  by misrepresentations   of  the  official  correspondence between   the  nations previous to the declaration of  war.   The German people are evidently; led to believe that Great Britain  was responsible for. the war, and that  since the commencement of hostilities  German  arms  have been  invariably  successful against the: allied troops.  They even appear to have supreme  confidence in their navy, and entertain  the delusion that the British navy will  be vanquished by their    own    fleet.  Through the censorship of news* by  the authorities in Germany,  and. by  means    of   spreading -false reports  broadcast, they are doing everything  possible to prejudice  the opinion of  neutral  countries.    Letters  are  now  being received in Canada mailed from  points in *he United States, and no  doubt written by agents of Germany,  which contain statements bearing on  the cause.-and progress of the war,  calculated to arouse an Anti-British  feeling.   These letters In most cases  are being sent to the- proper authorities,  so  that this  plan of  campaign  may be exposed.  As showing the manner in which the  German people are kept in the dark  as to the true conditions of affairs in  respect to the war situation, the following letter, written by a Berlin  newspaper owner to a friend in England, is illuminating:  "Never in my life I should have ventured to think that Great Britain  should ever declare war on Germany,  the nation to -which the British had  the closest affinity, there being thousands and thousands Jofe; friendly and  amicable* relations between- the iuhab-  five days and five nights I got six  hours' sleep, and so am rather weary.

Thoy  have no code of. honor, and there,  have been several cases of their wearing French' and British uniforms,  which is, of course, against the Geneva convention. -  evitable shortage of supply resulting  v from war conditions in Europe.

The order provides that  any cabinet minister, delegated ior  the purpose, may assume control of  any telegraph or telephone company,  nnd use Its lines for his majesty's service. It is further provldod that the  minister may direct that all messages  be submitted to censorship, whether  by telegraph or telephone, going out  of Canada shall go through certain  named offices only.  Any director or officer of a co:j.-  pany contravening tho instructions-of  the minister Is liable to a penalty of  ?r>,000 or flvo years* imprisonment.

"The Bravest of the Brave"  ���������;'" The Victoria Cross, the supremist  British reward for valor o������ which  many will JJoubcless be won during  the present campaign, is the youngest of such decorations, only dating  back to the Crimean War in 1856. It  is the most valued possession in  many a home in Britain today. The  Austrian Cross, on the other hand, is  the oldest.  A similar reward, in Germany is the  Iron Cross, instituted by tho Emperor  Frederick William III. of Prussia In  the year 1813. Russia gives as a decoration to its heroic soldiers the Cross  of St. George, which was founded by  the famous Empress Catherine II. in  the year 1769, and, while tlTe Victoria  Crocs Is of bronze, and the Iron Cross  as Its name implies, of iron (which I.  edged with silver), the Russian Ord^r  is of gold, with a beautiful medallion  of St. George, killing the dragon.  In Austria, again, tho cross is of  gold, and was instituted in tho year  1757 by the Empress Marie Theresa  soon aftor her accosslon to the  Throne. It boars the same inscription as the British Victoria Cross,  ours having in English "For Valor,"  and theirs in Latin the word "For  tltudlnl."  It Is difficult to estimate correctly  tho actual war strength of Groat.Britain, on account of the loyalty and  readiness to servo of hor clvlllun  population. Tlio adaptability ci  British mon to any sort of armed  service la always a marvel to foreigners, and comes, no doubt, In part  from tho national love of spuit.

To Protect the Birds  "To'hunt birds ��������� without a gun or  sling shot," is the ideal kept.constant-  ly before the members of the Fa.*m  Journal Liberty Bell Bird Club, who  sign a pledge to protect all song and  insectivorous-__hir.ds.__. If. it happens  that a newly enroUed member "avats"  to the' savage instinct of his primitive  forefathers when he sees a bird within shot and brings it fluttering to his  feet, his fellow members with literature, arguments and. personal persuasion try to show him the evil of his  ways and bring him back into the  folds of the merciful. If he refuses to  reform and continues to violate his  pledge his name is at last stricken  from the membership list and he :.  sent to Coventry by his comrades  pledged to save the birds, and through  them, save the crops from being devoured by insect pests.  Sunday schools in many districts  are finding new ways to teach humane  principles to their pupils by having  them enroll as members of the Liberty  Bell Bird Club, are of the Farm Journal, in Philadelphia, Pa. Its banner,  and pledge are kept before tho  classes, Its educational pamphlets and  wall cards are used to encourage the  children to study and protect the  birds, and so lead them towards being binder and more conslderato of  each other.  Sabbath school classes in dlltere.it  parts of the country report most interesting "Bird Evenings" whore bird  songs, recitations, essays and little  plays aro gtveu. Sunday school sup*  crlntondents are calling the attention  of tholr teachers to this otter.tlve helper for croating a greater Interest and  larger attendance in Sunday school  classes.  There    is no cost in joining    tho  club, no fees, no duos or assessments  ( of any kind.    Any person who signs  has proved beyond- any doubt that Ger  many up to the last moment has extended her sincere desire to preserve  the peace.* True,' its situation between  two enemies who were. at all times  jealous of her development has forced  her to keep vigilant watch and to prepare for a fight should it be. provoked  by her neighbors.. Now the war has  come, abrupty .arid unexpectedly and  since it has com������ without any intelligent reason, merely because the Russians believed the time - ripe for the  crushing   of their civilized neighbor,  the whole German nation has risen,  as one man, to fight for our independence and our standing In the rank of  the great powers.   There are no more  parties in our empiye;    the    Social-  democrats have, just as well as the  Alsacians   and   Polish   in   our: boundaries, unanimously voted for the enormous sums deemed..' necessary, each  and every one has .taken up the arms,  and now there are>'millions   of good  soidiers at our frontiers, eager to face  the enemy wherever he may appear.  The Russians, whose millions of soldiers were expected to flood over out  eastern provinces, have cowardly fled  wherever they met only a handful of  German and Austrian soidiers, and it  is safe to predict that oar troops will  couth-US to chase thexn. as far. as ws  choose, and whatever thers exists of  the Russian fleet will soon be doomed,  or, if considered fit for the purpose,,  r rry  the  German    flag.    And    tH8  French?   We have permitted them to  enter into Alsace, just as we allowed  the Russians-to pass over our frontier  for a couple of miles���������for the simple  reason  that the  fact be  established   -  that they, not the Germans, were the  aggressors in t"\i3 disastrous international war.   But in the meantime, we  have proven that German valianee and  courage is the same as 1870, and tho  Belgians, who have been badly advised that their country should be neutralized towards Germany,- but open to  British and French "manoeuvres, have  been shamefully deserte' by their ad-  ������.tr.t������.��������� nM^ A*... mm.���������. 4-1. .v Awni. ->^. 4>.m������0 4.1* n.

Still, the vast British fleet has, as far as we know, up  to this hour not dared to approach our  coast, but prefers to do the safe busi-  enss of piracy.   I do not believe that  our navy will follow  this policy of  apparent cowardness, but will before  long visit the British coast and hunt;  the British vessels, and the result will  be     that the fiction  of the  British  navy's supremacy will go to the dogs.'

Canning Factories Will Employ Mora  Canadian Help  Industrial conditions in Canada at  this time will result in the employment of many more Canadians than  usual in the canning factories of the  Dominion.   In previous seasons many  canning factories, finding difficulty la  obtaining sufficient local help, secured assistance from the larger labor  market of the United States. It is estimated that several   thousand   employees of Canadian canning factories  during previous seasons were not permanent residents of this country.   In  view of tho unemployment In some Industries at this time the canning factories will be able to secure in Canada  most, if not all, the help they require  this  season.    Thus many Canadians  who would otherwise bo out of employment will have tho work In the canning factories that in previous years  was given to parties who wero resident in Canada only during tho canning season.   Tho policy ot tho loading canning companies hnB been to  employ local help as far as possible.  Another condition that will tend to  increase tho number of Canadians employed in the canning Industry In tula  country la the curtailment ot Imports  of canned vogotables from Franco and  Bolglum.
