War arid Weather  It is to be nocnl that the sea flight  oil Heligoland was fought in a log under cover of which the British cruiser fleet bcldy sailed, in upon the enemy sheltering behind a screen oi sea-  mines, and under the guns ol the.  forts.  The weather has often served Britain welL in times of Svar..The. weather' fir.isiied the destruction of the Armada, and served us well when the  Free h invaded Ireland, aud there  been other times when a foe.  raid British shores, fount!  rendered difficult by bad  have  anxious to  his    work  weather. j  A heavy thunderstorm at Crecy j  slackened the -owvstrings" of the I  Genoese archers of the French,)  whereas tire English kept their hows '  cased, and suffered nothing; and, to I  come to moden. times, the- gallant: j  Devcns made their famous charge at j  Waggon Hili, Ladysmith. with a'!  thunderstorm at their back. '  It was a heavy mist that allowed |  Marlborough to get his army across ;  the Scheldt, ilthousrh the enemy had '  gathered to dispute the passage.. An-'  son was once well served by a fog, \  which enabled him to slip through {���������  a French fleet unobserved.. j  Snow and frost have always hind-j  ered rather than, helped, though the j  terrible winter in ihe Crimean War ]  showed that we could rise superior;  even to such handicaps; and ColoneU  Kelly's inarch across the snow-covered mountains to the'relief oE'Chitral  showed the same.   ���������  Corps ''Maintained by Private Fir,m  Throughout the empire many patriotic employers have offered to assist in ..'equipping their employes and  enrolling them in the British iifrn;/  for service at home or abroad.  The firm of Shoolbred,...-London,  holds a unique record in-military'annals.  For fifty-four years the'"-firm ..maintained at their -.own. expense a full  company o.������I the Queen's Westminster  j Rifles, drawn "from their own staff  1 and officered by members of the firm.  (Thirty-four men of the company took  j part in the south African war;.'while  i they were away they were paid full  wages, aifd the situations^were kept  open for them until their return.  What occurred fourteen years ago  is being repeated now and on a more  extended scale. Under the-'Territorial system the old Qucen'e Westminsters have been converted into  the lSth Battalion County of London. The corps is under the^. com-  niattd of Lieut.-Colonel Rupert Shoolbred, and seventy-four men are out  and mobilized.  Full wages will be paid to the married men and half wages to the unmarried, and the posts of all will be  kept open for them until their return. ^Moreover, ten horse drivers of  the" firm have volunteered for transport service with the regiment, the  horses being supplied by Messrs.  Shoolbred.  Battlefield is 8i!ent to the Airmen  So for as tlio reconrioitaring altman  is concerned, a battlefield is quite  silent. The noise of the engine  drowns every other sound.  "It is very difficult to distinguish  anything," says a Belgian aviator who  flew over Liu������. ImclleflelciB at Diesis?  when fighting was at its height. "Men  look'so small from such a height. For  example, unless you are directly over  ��������� them you can scarcely see oven avtil-  i lory upon a road."  A riQe .bullet struck the propeller  of his machine and broke it slightly,  hut did not stay his flight. Tho ox-  plosions of shells woro very disturbing because they interfered with the"  equilibrium of the machine*.  There is official authority for tho  following story;  A French aviator was obliged by  lack.of petrol to land in the nnnoxod  provinces. While ho was filling his  tivnk a strong German patrol appeared. I Calmly ignorim* it. Mm officer  continued to empty his petrol cans.  The Germans*, wore taken aback,  aud. unable to undevstnud his actions,  halted ut two hundred yard-; distance  without tiring, perhaps fearing a trap.  When the tank was full tho aviator  started the engine and made ofr.  lie was well off the ground before anyone^ suspected    his design.

Bombs  From Air Crafts  Thr*.  dropping of  bombs from aircraft was first developed iu  the Un.t-  ed States.   Glenn II. Curtiss was the  first aviator  to  demonstrate how  a  battleship might be bombarded from  tha air.   Before 1910 Curtiss startled  the American  navy  department and  those of Europe by dropping oranges  on a warships' deck.   Carrying a load  of explosives in an aeroplane was in  itself  diingero'us,   involving  the  possibility of an explosion    in a rough  start of landing;    dropping   weights  above ten pounds during flight wn.3  supposed to affect the etjuilibrl*.*  . of  an aeroplane, and dropping of bombs  with any accuracy soemed impossible.  But these limitations were removed in  the characteristically speedy way in  which nil limitations are removed 'in  aeronautics.  In March, *|^i2, nt St. Louis, Tony  .Tannus dropped Albert Berry, weighing 175 pounds, from  an aeroplane,  demonstrating    thai,    a  load    iar^a  enough to blow up a, battleship could  be dropped during flight   without on*  clangoring tho life of the pilot. Later  In tho year tho Mlcholln bomb-dropping contosts induced experiments at  bomb-dropping,    which    resulted    in-  Lieutenant   ltiloy    E.    Gcott placirig  twolvo  out of  flftoon  bombs  in  the  tnrg. ���������'-. nnd winning tho $10,000 prize.  . Thoso demonstrations woro cor.vinc-  Inrc, but llttlo attention was glvon to  thorn by military authorities outside  of llutisla and Germany, whoro bomb-  dropping   contests woro hold. But individual Inventors nnd military mon  contlnuod    tholr    experiments,    and  thorn    woro    evolved    devices    und  bombn    which    collectively,    if    not  wlugly, could bo said to solvo'tho problem.

AH   One   Has   to   do   New   ,s   Press'  Button and Look at Ceiling  ' Awakening ui the night and wondering what time it may be, who has not  longed to see the clock without getting up and striking a light? 'oick  people are especially curious about  the time. To make this longing easy  to satisfy a iirm'in Paris has just put.  on the market a clock that by pressing  a button is made to project a picture  of its face in a ray of light upon tho  ceiling.        .    -'    ~ ���������     '    '  This clock, which-looks like a young  cannon, stands upon a box containing  three dry batteries. Its mechanism is  in a metal tube> at one end of which  is an ordinary dial.-. In the daytime  this end is uppermost or foremost. But  when, night comes you turn the can:  non over on it's trunnions so that the  reverse end is uppermost or foremost.  In the reverse end is a, second dial,  of transparent glass, with the figures  reversed and running round its face  inversely, as do the hands. In front  of this a plain cover Jens and bo-  hind it, a small electric lamp attached  by wires to the batteries and by ether  wires to a push-button.  This push-button can be placed wider the pillow or upon a table beside  the ,bed. When one wants to see the  time in the night one presses the l.ut-  ton; this lights the lamp, which projects upon the ceiling or upon the wall  a greatly magnified picture of its face,  so that one can lie comfortably in bed  and read tho time at a glanco. Another push of the button extinguishes  the lamp.

Impressed by their fighting qualities, Kersting, following, in a small  way the example set by Cortez, in  Mexico, and by Cllve in India, allied  himself with the uro���������or king���������of -the  Tsehaudjo, and, aided by him, he  eventually subdued the whole country and placed it under the German  ' flag, * The present uro,. unsold but  dignified and amiable savage named  Djoba, is the son of the man who  "���������;,. fought under Kcrstlng's bannor.

Modern warfare is a costly business!  Some years ago a leading German  Socialist estimated that a "Franco-  German war, under modern conditions would cost ?50,000,00������ a montli,  while if Great Britain, Austria, Russia and Italy were engaged, the figures would soar to $2,250,000,000    a  xxjiuui/U:  There is %very indication that these  figures'are being attained, if not sur-  passed in the big war in Europe." ���������   ^7  When one considers the upkeep of'  the^vast armies in the fighting Una  actr tiugaged keeping open comm^nl"  cation to the base, tho material- need-  CU    tO   te������U    LiiVJ    i. llli}   uuU    Ul&   HUH,   iiiiU  the continuous need of equipment,  the figures quoted do not appear  large in proportion to the force engaged in the conflict.  But-there is money to be made ia  war, as in every business. Germany,  for instance, profited much from the  Franco-German war of 1870. Her "  war bill amounted to $450,000,000,  but when peace proposals were  made, Germany nressnisd Francs  vith a bin of $1,600^000,000. 'itgot  every cent ot it.  It was the great Bismarck who arranged the terms of tho treaty, and  though he chuckled mightily at the '  idea of getting this huge sum from  the French for stopping the war, It  is said that he was sorry when he  saw how readily the French scraped  the amount together, that he had not  askedv for double the amount! Germany had previously squeeezd an indemnity of over* ������40,000,000"out of  her present ally, Austria, after hos<*  tillties lasting only one month.  Other countries, too, have found  war a very profitable business, notably Japan, who, after the war of  1894-1895    with_ China,    arising   out  Gj.   bji-3   SkSbcO  OX jL-ft.GjTcci'f xuauo   lu.3 v^UJJIT  ese pay her an indemnity cf $185,000,-  000. As the war cost Japan only $30,=  000,000, she made a profit of $155,000,-  000. in addition to which she gained  certain towns and territories.  But Japan gained little profit fros*  the -vjr with Russian in 1904-05, fa  spite of an indemnity of $500,000,000, ^  which was demanded, for the cost of  that campaign to Japan alone was  < -Jtimated at $600,000,000.  A country which has never found  war profitable is-* Russia. Ker encounter with Turkey in the 70's eofot  her an enormous amount of money-  She would only have been a little out  ot pocket if she had received the  $250,000,000 indemnity which she asked for in her bill. Ultimately the  indemnity was cut down to $160,000,-  000 with which to pay her out-of-  pocket expenses, of which sum Turkey \ up to the present time has paid  just over half, arid there seems little likelihood that she will ever raise  the full amount.  The cost of the Russian-Japanese  war was staggering. Tho campaign  lasted about 1'9 months, and altogether it is estimated that the combined expenses of Russia and Japan  amounted tof/nol-ssstha-a ?2,225,000e-  000. The loss td*5apan5fl navy aud  mercantile marine alone amounted  to $250,000,000. -   ���������;'  This    was    the    fourth  campaign  upon which Russia had entered within three-quarters of a century.    The  first and second were   with Turkey,  the former involving an expenditure  of $100,000,000 and tho loss Cf 120,000  men.    This was in 1828, and twenty-  six years later came the Crimea, In  which 'France., and England took a  hand.   The total cost of tlila terrlblo  war   was    $1,565,000,000.    England***  bill alone amounted to $390,000,000.  The Napoleonic wars, which ended  with Waterloo, were comparatively  cheap for France, as the '.total "bill  amounted only i> $1,250,000,000.  The present war will be as costly  a on 1 for both conqueror and vanquished. Already Germany is endeavoring to partly recoup herself by levying enormous exactions on the citios  and towns occupied in. tho lino ot  march Across Belgium. Whether th*  sums will he paid boforo the invaders  are driven back across tho frontier is  another story, r.s it is pooslblo that  tho Belgians will not submit calmly  to the exorbitant demands made upon  thorn by an onomy who has turned a  beautiful country Into ono of death  and devastation. v  But Germany Is eortal.nly layln*  herself open to dreadful reprisal's,  fur when thlu war is over tlio hid omul ty to bo claimed from hor will bo  simply onormous.

ALICE SIDING  Concerning Fruit  While it may be true that some  or  all   the   points  raised   by   Mr.  Compton in his talk'to the Farmers  ! Institute on profitable apple culture  had l������een   aired  previously, on one  point at least tiie speaker displayed  some originality;   he did not favor  imploring the government to come  to the rescue of the Creston Valley  growers.  In these days when agricultural  organizations particularly seem to  think its up to the government to  provide most everything but a  guarantee of eternal salvation it  was a treat to hear Mr. Compton  preach tho gospel of "God helps  those who help themselves."  Whilo there is no gainsaying his  argument that by selling direct to  the retailer it is possible to get a  higher price for the grower, and at  the Bathe time time provide tho consumer with bis fruit ut a lower  price limn he has been compelled  to pay in the pant.  Likewise there is no denying his  claim that with a few live salesmen working the prairie towns it  ������honhl ho poiajiblo to dispose of the  Valley fruit crop direct to 'the  roLuih-tir at the maximum price and  legislature is  down to business at  Victoria the proposed redistribution  of the-province is givin***--'the newspapers ample scope for speculation.  First   we   were   told   that* the  membership in the house would not  be increased ;   the government proposed    merely  to   re-arrange   the  boundaries  of existing constituencies with a view to making each as  compact  as  possible, and'so far as  feasible average up the population  in the ridings as equally as maybe.  Then came the information that  possibly more representation would  in future be given the rural districts  ���������that  the  city representation  in  tho  house be  cut down  and  the  rural representation be increased.  Now it is stated that the redistribution bill will add four or five additional members. The hulk of the  new ridings will be in the territory  tapped by the Grand Trunk Pacific  in tlio north, and possibly another  one in the Cariboo country.  Whatever local feeling there is  favors the creation of a Creston  constituency; failing this Ymir  will suffice. Kaslo is quite excited  over the matter.

"But what did you want a number  for?" asked Hugh curiously.

"Yes," Delia replied, "in Ins study:  he has not stirred out of it since yesterday morning: he has hardly eaten  a thing, he never went to "bed last  night, and if anyone goes into the  room he swears at there and asks  them for a number."  "Good gracious!" said Hugh, bewildered. "What on earth do you  mean?"  "Exactly what I say," said Delia.  After a pause she added meditatively.  "1 think that Js what has got oa my  nerves and made me fly out so at 1 ^������  poor James; for now I come to think  of it, 1 seem to : csmeniber that it was  I  myself, who spilt that cream."

"I -have felt upset," she answered  moodily, her eyes on the ground and  yet giving him one swift side glance,  "ever since you left here; I have felt  so bored since. But how have you  come?" she added quickly. *'I heard  no wheels or anything."  "I came by train," he answered. "I  took the 2.52 from town and walked  over."  "All the way?" she asked quickly.  "Have you walked all that way in an  hour?"  "I wanted a walk," he said, "and I  had a skirmish with a tramp on the  way into the bargain. Th-j fellow was  insolent, and I had to knock nim down  after which lie cleared off at championship pace."  "Ah, you are a man," she said with  a deep sigh: "to walk six miles in an  hour and fight a tramp on the way���������"  "It fs not much of a test of manhood," said Hugh with a laugh. "Cou.d  I" see-uncle if I went to the house?"  'You  will   find  him  in  hid  study,"  she   answered",   falling   hack   in   her  chair in her old, bored manner:  "and  when he has sworn at you, and asked you for a number, you can come  bacjj: to me and I will give you some  tea���������oh.!   and ie you see James any  where, tell him  I want to speak to  him.'  "All right." said Hugh, thinking to  himself that if he were James, Delia  might continue to want to speak to  him.  He went into the house, and making  his way lo his uncle's* study tapped  at the door. Thero was no answer,  and so hoturned the handle and entered. Mr. Hetherington, sitting at a  big writing table covered with papers  that had overflown on to the floor,  looked up with an oath as the door  opened.  "You. Hugh," he growled. "Well,  why -tre you not at business?" He  lifted his hand suddenly and pointed  full at him with a gesture almost  threatening. "Well, as you tiro here,  give nic a number, will you?" he said.  "Quirk���������a  number."  *I��������� don't know," answered Mr.Hetherington, who, probably from the relaxing of, the strain under which he  had been working, seemed inclined  to be 'much more communicative-than,  usual.

Bole, President the National Drug & Chemical Company of Canada, Limited  Our leaders In both the imperial and  Canadian parliaments tells us it is not  for love or. Avar, or lust of conquest,  or territorial greed. In Great Britain the people are happy and prosperous, and less than any othor country  in".Europe, is the gulf- between reaction and progress; there is, therefor?,  no domestic reason for war. While  England is bound by treaty to respect  the neutrality of Belgium, she is hot  bound by treaty to defend it; she is  not bound by anything that is signed, sealed ahd delivered to help  -France;: she has no direct interest in  the quarrel between Austria and Servia, yet when English diplomacy failed to confine hostilies to these two  countries, war involving Great Britain and the empire, was as inevitable  as it was honorable and necessary.  England was a party to the creation of'the-new-'Kingdom of Belgium  in .1831, and was, therefore, morally  obligated to assist her to maintain hor  independence, especially against a nation bound by treaty to respect it.  This is apart from England's traditional policy of. encouragement and  help to weak nations fighting for lib  erty and a free government. How  much little Belgium has deserved  English support was demonstrated  during the month of August. For three  precious weeks she stemmed the tide  of au army intended to crush Europe;  then when the military strategy of  the Allies required'it she sacrificed  her beautiful Capitol as a pawn, in the  game of war. Such valor and self-  abnegation, are rare in history.  Then with respect to Kranee, the  good feeling "which has existed for  some years, between the two nations  developed into an understanding  which, to an honorable - nation, was  as binding as a treaty. So confident  were the two nations of each other's  support, that England surrendered, in  a great measure to the safe-keeping  of the French fleet, her interest in the  Mediterranean, while France trusted  her western and northern shores to  the friendly vigilance of the English  fleet. If England had been the first to  feel the stroke of the enemy, no Br������t-  en has an-" doubts as to what the attitude of France would have  been.  In these circumstances, both with  regard to Belgium and France, Great  Britain is at -war'.'because honor demand.** it. If she had made herself  a party to the shameful bargain proposed by Germany, she would n..vei*-  have recovered from the shame.  Now, as to the quetsion of the necessity of war for the protection of her  material interests, a glance at the  map of Europe will answer. Great  Britain's total annual trade is nearly  seven billion dollars, onts-third of  which is-with. Continental'Europe. The  open door to this vast European trade  is through Holland and Belgium. If  England had remained neutral, and  France found herself unable to drive  the Germans back, into their own  country, these doors would have been  closed. In addition to this blcv* at  England's   trade   and   prestige*   Ger  In o great many of the newer agricultural districts it is very expensive  to erect buildings for stock owing to the high price of lumber and th������  distance which It has to be hauled.

During the battle of the Alma;  when the fate of empires appeared  trembling in the balance, Colonel  Wheatley, with the cheerful non  chalance of the merry men he commanded, cried out: "Where's th-3  cat, boys?"  "Hero she is, sir," answered, a  stentorian voice, and a gigantic  bearded Grenadier stopped forward,  opened his knapsack as he spoke.  Thero was puss, safe and snug.

The allotment of characteristics  among offspring was accomplished  through a process of cell -division in  which the elements were sorted, out.  What those-elements were we did not  know, but it seemed to him unlikely  that they were material -particles. He  suspected ' that their properties depended, on some method of arrangement.  Plants, fowls, dogs, horses, one's  own children exemplified this doctrine of segregation of the factors of  inheritance.-* The. body of evidence  was now very large.  In place of what they now knew the  scop*er' claimed for natural selection  must be greatly reduced. WO went to  Darwin for his facts, but he no longer  spoke with philosophical authority.  The doctrine of the survival of the  fittest helped scarcely at all to account for the diversity of the species.  .There w^s no proof that-the domestic animals had been developed  from a "few wild types. Fowls presented insuperable difficulties as to  ancestry. t Dogs, horses, cattle, sheep,  poultry, *- wheat, riee,' oats, -. plums,  cherries had in turn been accepted -as  derived not from one but from several  distinct forms. -  The problem of the origins of lifo  still stood outside the range of scientific investigation, and when they=-  heard of the spontaneous formation  of aldehyde by the action of light as  the first step in the origin of life, they  thought- of Harry Lauder in the character of a schoolboy pulling out his  treasures from his pocket saying  "That's a washer���������fer makkin' motor  cars."  Evidently Darwinism has had its  day, and is to be followed by some  new scientific theory, nature and revelation being apparently the only-  stable facts in life.  lue  ja.mi.uls  will  be   woinea,   the  ele  I "Pittsie"  Ryan, Walking  Around ihe  f"       J^orld,  Last  Heart!  Paris  One of- the globe-trotters whom war  overtook in Europe is "Pittsie" Ryan,  an American newsboy whose face, if  not his name, is known to thousands  of people, including not a few dignitaries. "Pittsie" started almost two  years ago to walk-around the world,  taking his time doing it, and when  last heard from he was in Paris selling American newspapers to tourists.  That was three weeks ago. He wrote  to a "newsie", in New.

'Tis Made Erom Ground Tulip Bulbs,  ,and is Very  Nourishing  On account of the scarcity of  wheat in- Holland, the Association of  Dutch Bakers has sanctioned the use  of a so-called "tulip bread," in which  one-third of the flour used is made  from ground tulip bulbs. The bread  is said to be very nourishing and the  war ministry has recommended its  use in the army.  A special to the London Daily New-3  from Rotterdam says that the German  minister of agriculture has- issued a  circular declaring that the cereal crop  is not so good as expected, ordering  the manufacture of alcouol cut down  40 per cent., and recommending that  farmeYs conserve the food supply   by  An Uncomfortable Night  Recently a resident of an inland  town in the United States went on a  trip thct included an all-nigh***, ^voyage on, a,steamboat.

This war  is not a bolt out of the 'blue. It has  long been recognized as unavoidable  and it bears the earmarks of deliberate planning. Nothing* was lucking but  a good excuse. And this excuse has  been found, or manufactured, as you  please. It is right that Germany  should pay heaviest.  Let us hope the plea for bloated  armaments as 'essential to national  safety may never attain be hoard.
