John Carfra, jr.', attends drill in  Crestont every Saturday evening.  John expects to be a member of the  JTourth Contingent. He is the first  volunteer from Canyon who goes to  fight "Boches."  A party of Creston people consisting  of-Messrs. Walmsley, Lowenberg, Mc-  Creath, Bennett and Mallandaine were  here on Friday watching a demonstration of stump-pulling on the Yale lots  C. O. Rodgers is clearing.  *  On April 12th Mrs. H. Olmstead  celebrated her eighty-third birthday.  She came to Canyon City three years  ago from Saskatchewan and resides  with her daughter, Mrs. W.H.Burritt.  Her ijaemory, for one so aged, is ex-1  ceedingly good, and it is the wish of  all her friends that she may enjoy  many more birthdays.  Roadwork is progressing favorably  in Canyon City. Polities cut no figure  whatever. - The men who need the  Tuesday train and the changing from  Saturday to Sunday will be-very seriously felt by the ranchers in ,the teri-  tory served by the K.V., particularly  those who were shipping cream, butter, and other farm produce to Bonners  Ferry, and when the season for perishable fruit arrives this inconvenience  will be still more acute.  The matter of secimng the resumption of the"old train service on the K.  V. railway has been presented to the  Public Utilities Commission of Idaho  and will be taken up by that commission at once.  If the K.V. service Is not resumed it  is more than probable that an automobile stage between Bonners Ferry  ahd; lVirthillwill bo established and a  numbe^'} of auto owners are now  considering the^ pi'9.|ect favorably and  several have said they would start the  service if they could secure the govern-  merit cbntriustfo^^  This contract alone would mean quite  alarge "sum andtho pasBongei- and  .freight business. which an auto stag-  would secure would pj*obabiy1inean n  lucrutiyp business during the summer  time.y';':,:y' y'.yA'''\ *     .-.",,:''".'.,''.������������������: '������������������.'"'���������'-''���������������������������'"]  /Che tinow has disappeared completely from the hills around Crhnbx'Oolr.^  much sooner th-ih usual and siyveiv  weoka earlier than lust year.

It is some other  man. you are thinking of, miss."*  He took out olVTiis pocket, as he  spoke, and showed to Eira, a copy of  that day's Athens Clarion. There, under flaming head lines, was an account of the Bryan murder, a wild denunciation of the negro race iu gen-|  eral, and a fervent, frantic appeal to  know these two -Hen are white inon, \ sileac-o   _'_lgned  and are innocent?"

Abu adorning all this  rigmarole was a large photograph of  Mr. Hetherington, but represent ing  him as a negro and in clothes similar  to those be now wore.  Eira knew this photograph at once.  It was one that had been published  is. oae of the London. iilustr_r _n papers on the occasion of some public,  meeting in which Mr. Hetherington  had taken a part.

The  animal reared, spun round on his hind  legs, and snorted wildly. "Down, you  beast," cried Frear, and hit it on the  nose.  At that it took the bit between its  teeth and galloped away like a mad  thing, in spite of all its rider could  do to check it.  For, under cover ot her handkerchief, Eira had taken iter brooch out  from where she wore il at her ueek.  and had slipped it under the tail of  Frear's horse.   As soon as the animal  moved,  it pricked it;   the  faster  It  j moved,  the more deeply the pin of  | the brooch pierced;  maddened with  } pain and indignation, the animal was  now galloping wiUilj- over the prairi-  vainly   endeavoring  to   escape    the  ���������pain that bit it troni ne'umu, the be- ���������  wildered Frear being quite unable to'  check it or control it.  "Pray heaven the jjrooch does not  slip out," said Eira to herself, and  turning lier own horse's head, she set  herself to ride as she had never ridden yet, not even when she had been  pursued by the lynchers just a little  while before. For then she had only  been frightened aud bewildered, but  now despair had wrought her powers  up to the last pitch of her capacity.  She heard Frear shouting from behind, but paiu no heed. She rode  with a .wild recklessness, coaxing  from her horse every ounce of speed  he possessed and not fearing to take  such chances down ravines, by gopher  holes, over a wire fence that crossed  her path, as at other mo'-ients she  would have tremblec. at the thought  .

"But if wo tell them we are really  white men?" said Hugh.  "They will not-believe that." returned Eira; "you are taken in a trap aud  all that has been arranged, thought  of, provided against.

This'is not only true of the Dominion  of Canada, but also of the United  States, Great Britain and France. In  fact, the shortage is world wide. The  figures-'in'proof of this are as follows*.

The iotai  numbei? received during September,  1913, was 954,181, and during September, 1914, was 814,985, or a decrease of  139,196.  It might not be fair to take that as  an average decreast but cutting these  figures exactly in half we have a total  decrease In cattle shipments* for the  year, -..t the above named markets,  835,170 head, or roughly speaking,  300,000 pounds of beef.

The Central Farmers'  Market of Winnipeg, very wisely took  a few specimens of poorly dressed  birds and presented them before the  delegates to the Grain Growers' convention at Sratidon. Every farmer  and_ farmer's wife who saw them was  astounished to think that any farmer-  would be foolish enough to ship such  stuff to market.  Yet that exhibit was quite typical of  hundreds of pounds of dressed poultry  that come /oh our western markets.  There is no possible excuse for shipping birds that are so thin that no  city family would take them as Hi-  gift. Some geese and turkeys come  on the market that are smaller than  medium sized ducks, and ducks ara,  shipped that would not make a meal  for two. Some cases of all classes  of fowl come to market half plucked,  dirty, bloody and so thin that-they  can only be handled by Restaurants  for making pot pie. For this purpose  the price is "naturally very low. It  is really astonishing to see the miserable condition in which some farmers  send their poultry to market.  Now, who  sends  this poor  trash?  We know, as well as does the general  public,     that the  thrifty  farmer  or  farmer's wife would not think of. shipping poultry to market before it was  properly   fattened,   properly  cleaned  and dressed and presented in the best  possible sbapo.   If they had no grain  lo fatten them, they would keep them  at home, and, If they wanted to know  j how to dress and pack them, the^  would find y.X rather than ship them  in "any-old-shape." Such stuff is shipped by the disinterested, uneducated  farmer, the man who does not take^a  farm paper and to whom the education afforded by our agricultural col-  legos does not appoal. He does not  read;   he  does not know;   and, perhaps, he does not care. **  This class is always the most difficult to roach. How can tliey bo reached? It will require somo co-opcrativo  effort to reach them. For instance,  one way would bo for dealers to keep  a list of tho names of shippers who  solid forward this poor stuff and tun}  those names over to thoso who have  chavgo of tis educational work, Bay,  our agricultural colleges or departments of agriculture Tho shipper  could thon ho reached dlr.ct by lot-  tors of-Information, or personally vls-  Itod by a district representative or  agricultural soorotary, such aa are  found in somo provinces of Canada.

C. Snow.  Dr. Snow, in the course of a paper  on "The Magnitude of. the Population  of England Available for Emigration,"  recently read before the Royal Statistical Society, argued that, apart from  military considerations, there practically was no male population for emigration from England and Wales, but  an appreciable number of unmarried  women under forty-five, s perhaps as  many as half a million, could be  spared. In the interests of the future  development of tho.dominions the present deficiency in the number of  women emigrants should be rectified.  The secotid section deals with  communications. Among the contents  are a memorandum by Mr. Charles  Bright, the consulting engineer to  the Commonwealth of Australia, and  ^statement of the views cf the Empire Press Union" on the subject of a  state owned Atlantic, cable. The  transmission of newsnapers between-  tha United Kingdom and the dominions is referred to. The section also  contains a memorar. dum drawn up by  Mr. H. AL.

No"w that your attention*, has been  called to the importance of internal  bathing, it anay be that a number of  questions will suggest themselves to  your mind. You will probably waat to  know WHAT an Internal Bath is,  WHY people should take them, and  the WAY to take, them* These and  countless other questions are all answered in a booklet entitled "THE  WHAT, THE WHY and "THE WAY  OF INTERNAL BATHING." written  by Doctor Chas. A. Tyrelh. the inventor, of the "J.B.L. Cascade," whoso  lifelong study and research along tlfis  line make him the pre-eminent authority on this subject. Not oniy has internal bathing saved aad prolonged  Dr. Tyrell's own life, but the lives of  multitudes of individuals have been  equally spared and prolonged. No  other book has ever been written containing such a vast amount of practir  cal information, to the business man.  .-<���������>. Alt  such an experience would doubtless  prove to be. There is, then, only one  other way to get this information into their hands, and that is by acquainting them with such knowledge  as will enable them to appreciate the  value of this lon-g-sought-for, health-  producing necessity.  Few people realize what a very  little thing is necessary sometimes  to improve their physical condition.  Also, they have almost no conception  of how little carelessness, indifference or neglect can be the fundamental cause of the most virulent  disease.

Nature never intended the  delicate human organism to be operated on a hundred per cent, overload.

Various schemes for increasing the vaiua of the protein content  of corn silage by the addition of various other fodders, such as cowpeas,  soja beans, etc., have been advocated.  The results along these lines have  been disastrous in many cases. The  beans are either too green or too dry^ acne,  to make good silage at the time the  silo is filled, or else there is trouble  in the cutting and filling, operations.  With tbe result that when the middle  of ^winter comes a large amount of  silage is wasted by rotting.

But  they   are   especially   valuable huthe  spring when the system is loaded with  impurities as a result ,of the indoor  life of the winter months. There is no  other season when  the blood is  so  much in need of purifying and enriching,  and  every dose    of these  Fills  helps to make new, rich, red blood.

It is in the spring  that, noisons in the blood h-d an outlet in disfiguring pimples,  eruptions  and    boils.    Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  speedily clear the skin because they  go to the root of the trouble in the  blood.   In the   spring anaemia, rheumatism, indigestion, neuralgia, erysipelas  and many  other  troubles   are  most persistent    because    of    poor,  ���������\veak hlood,    and    it is at this  time  when  all nature  takes  on new  life  that the blood most seriously needs  attention.    Some  people   dose  themselves with purgatives at this season,  but these only further weaken themselves.    A purgative merely gallops  through   the   system,   emptying   the  bowels, but it does not cure anything.  On the other hand Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills actually make new blood, which  reaches every nerve and organ in the  body,   bringing   new   strength,    new  health and vigor to weak, easily tired  mon, women and children.

We are further of the opinion that  the experience of NorthJOakota, considered in coujunetioj-.- with, tne history of agricultural progress in other  narts of North 'America, serves to establish conclusively that the attainment of a thoroughly satisfactory development of the agricultural industry of a new country requires that  there shall exist���������as auxiliary to th.  departments of ^agricultural- and experimental farms���������ah efficiently organized stafi of field men to carry in  formation to the farmers on their  own "farms.  As a natural consequence of the  unparalleled rapidity of the settlement of. Western Canada in tbe last  few years we have admittedly an unusually large percentage of settles  whose knowledge of farming is slight,  and it is therefore an abvious deduction that the result which could be  looked for from an efficient organization of field men would be proportionately greater here than in North Dakota. .   .

The  report of tbe two*aviators making the'  flight   turned   Gen.   von   Kluck's   column toward the south from its dash  on Paris in August and changed tbe  whole line of battle in  the  west.  .   A Striking feature    of    the flight,  moreover, was that its course did not  follow  orders,    but  was  determined  upon the initiative of the flyers. The  story  of the   flight,    taken,   from   a  German  magazine,   devotsd  to   aeronautics, follows:-  "It happened on the occasion of our  dash on Paris. The inhabitants of  the "city of light" received a daily  visit jfrom German aviators.. The  latter' were accustome _ \ to drop ,.i  couple of bombs every day, but their  visit here was not the object of their  program. The chief thing was to  -keep watch -of the 'movements of tbe  Paris reserve army. This army had  marched up with its front toward the  east and one day an aeroplane went  up "to observe it again.  ��������� "The aviators were struck with the  uncertain movements of tbe opponents of a 'German corps, who appeared to be having a- trifling conflict with  troppi-further north. Upon their own  responsibility the aviators changed  their course and flew off to the north.  "They flaw and flew.^for what they  saw was well worth closer observation- Then they speeded bac].-to headquarters and announced that a hostile  army, was marching upon von Kluck's  flank.  "Nobody would believe it at first.  Cavalry patrols had brought no news  to indicate sucb a movement." But  nevertheless it was true.  "The report resulted in the,known  new disposition of the German position in the, west, ami in the conferring of the Iron jQross of the first  class upon the pilot and. tbe officer observer.

The same evening he had  four thousand standing by waiting  for orders. /  ��������� Many an adult warriors in the British Isles, first knew he was .wanted  when a Scout brought him a letter  telling him where to report himself.  The emergency substitution work of  the lads *was wonderful.  The suddenness of the war meant  that many coastguards had to return  immediately to the Navy. Yet their  work was more necessary tban ever.  Hundreds of Scouts took their  places, and had the time of their lives  staying out all night or watching "all  day through big telescopes for the  enemies' ships. ,  It was a hardened journalist who  ooniessci that a lump* came into bis  throat when late one night he met a  small group of Scouts dragging their  trek cart, laden with bivouac gear,  and moving quietly through the dark  to their vigil on the cliffs."  Germany's. most vulnerable point  may be expressed iu a .single word���������  Krupp's.  This great concern at Essen supplies practically the whole of Germany's war materials, and its inability to keep up with the enormous  demands of the kaiser's great armies  may bring about the end of tbe war  at a much earlier date than has yet  entered into any. one's calculations.  As a matter of fact, the capacity  of the much ' vaunted Krupp works  is-not nearly so great as the aggregate capacity of Britain's five most  important armament firms. Reports  that Germany is running short of shot  and shell are persistent, and are likely  enough to be true, and it is notoriou;.  that Germany is making frantic efforts to secure supplies of metal by  any means and at any price.  There is also plenty of evidence  that Krupp-manufactured munitions  are by no means so superior as many  peopie had been ieu io believe, aud  we know, too, that the "colossus of  armament firms" jjas been mixed up  in scandals, bribery, and corruption.  Germany has been, very proud of its  Krupp's and has had unbounded confidence in the huge Essen factory. In  the supreme test now being applied  Krupp's may fail the fatherland.  Founded at Essen 102 years ago as  a factory for the production-of-"English cast steel," and employing only  seventy-workmen in-1848, this company now employs 70,000, of whom.  38,000 are in the Essen steel works  alone. The great Mannesmann iron  and steel works at Dusseldorf, capitalized at ������5,000,000 has been absorbed  into the Essen concern, bringing the  combined sliare and loan capital of  Krupp's  up to  071,500,000.  a a an '-indication of the exie.tt of  the Essen corks, itjnay be mention-  ed that tbe plant is served by eighty  miles of private railway, and that the  traffic between the works and the  Prussian sta*.e system average be-  iw_C-i ii-i*r and oixtv t^infc  d:i!lv.  The entire coal supply is furjii-hed  by the company's own collieries,  which emnli.y 10,000 men and prcdv.ee  nearly 3,000,000 tons a yen-. The  firm's iron ore mines employ 5,o���������t.5  men. The pig iron for the steel work^  is mostly supplied by the Priedricn-  Alfred fiutte, another important unit  of the Krupp organization. These  famous iron works cover nearly 700  acre3 of land, and include seven blast  furnaces.  The Annan steel works, another  Krupp unit, manufactures open-hearth  and crucible steel castings- for naval  purposes, and employs 1,000 men. The '  Crusonwerke, at Maedgburg, is another great branch, with 5,000 hands,  manufacturing gun mountings, gun  carriages and ammunition. The Ger-  mania shipyard,'at Kiel, is yet another Krupp property, and aow ranks  among the three best establishments  of its kind in the world. It has half a  mile of .water frontage, and can accommodate about ten" of the largest *  vessels on the stocks at one time,  besides torpedoes and other small  craft.  A novel branch of the Krupp enterprise is a pre_>a bureau. Four  thousand newspapers, technical magazines, reviews and books., besides a  deluge of cuttings, are received at  the Essener Hof monthly No publish-  3d report, article, or paragraph dealing wnn me subjects in wnich the  many branches of the Krupp establishment are interested faills to reach "  the-bureau. They are all indexed and  tiled.  The' particulars���������dimensions,, age,  and location���������of every ship of war  and practically every big gun in the  world are carefully recorded at  Krupp's, where the German naval and  military authorities havo a mine of -  ready information.  Lately this great firm has come under a cloud of suspicion which appears to be thickening. The case in  which judgment was delivered a year  ago shook the faith of not a few Germans in Krupp's', if not in tha government which fostered and shielded the  firm. It may be recalled that the  scandal was first brought to public  notice in the Reichstag in April. 1913,  by the Socialist Ldcbnecht "who had  first communicated his charges  against Krupp's to the war minister  in November, 1912.  Although   many    documents   were  <_.l*>T������r_oi3i-������.l     rvr-     +V������o     rr\.f\x.r\rt     -._,-,������������������    4.-K*\~-  --^K-wj^^-u      -*.������       .w^       ������������ w *_-.������._.

Lord Kitchener originally said  three years.   So far as newspaper reports are concerned there is no reason  to. believe  he  has  changed his  opinion.   All that ho is known to have  subsequently remarked'   is that    he  didn't know when the war could end,  but that he did know when it would  begin���������in --.lay.    This, of course, was  taken as indicating that the real offensive campaign of the allies would  then start.   Meantime, beyond sending over contingents, the plain duty  remains to Canada of being prepared  for any contingency.   This country it.  the nearest of the large overseas Dominions, and to this country Britain  will naturally look for d great portion  of her supplies. That she is doing r;o  already Is abundantly proven by the  fact that the  traao returns for tho  five months of the war that   elapsed  In 1514 show a decidedly marked Increase.    For the final quarter of the  year, compared with the same period  In  191:.,   that  increase  was  no  loss  than nlno and a half million dollars,  principally in the value of foodstuffs.  There    is    surely    groundwork    for  thought in such a statement. Canada  has proudly claimed to bo tho granary  of tlio etnpiro.   It it; now up to her to  fulfil that i.oast, nnd not only in tho  mutter of c.reals, but".also ������m regards  beef, mutton; pork, bacon ahd vegetables.
