Canada    has  learned  many lessons of importance from the  experience   of  her  nearest   neighbor,  the United Statas.    While the Canadian people are always disposed to act  with independence, they are not shortsighted enough to reject what may be  learned with profit from another coun������  try :yery-.:si_3.ilar in nature-to this one.  ^ A  few    w'eefcs   ago,   the Interstate  Commeree Commission of the United  j States handed* out a decision granting  ' to the railway companies    in certain  sections the    right to    increase their  rates.   A few years ago any such decision would have aroused a storm of  protest.    The recent decision was accepted, generally, in such good part  as toy suggest that the public is beting educated in economic truths-  Trade CommisBioner Says Canada Ha-  Seen the Worst  Addressing the" T_6ndon' chamber of  commerce on trade with the Domlsios  of Capada and the Empire, Hamilton  WicEs, the  trade    commissioner, expressed the opinion that Canada ksew  the worst and was now moving for-/  ward to better things.    He expected  the harvest of 1915 would do a great  deal to relieve the situation, but the  relief would not be fully reali-sed- uatll  1916,  hence   the   watchword  for   th_  immediate  future    should  be one ."of  caution. . . - *  In comparing business methods  Mr. Wickes said the average Britisher was neither .inquisitive nor -acquisitive as regards available-info, ma-  ation, and while intensely * self-reliant  in some directions he was strangle?  iiffident to his powers in others. As  \ manufacturer, the Britisher waa  without a peegr; as a salesman he was  without a knowledge of the- markets  Di* the science ot selling; as ���������compared  ivith his foreign neighbors. After explaining certain difficulties in connection with Canadian trade, Mr. Wickes  offered general suggestions for improvement of overseas trade, amongst  which were the organization of an intelligence department on a big scale  and the registration of firms; also better ce-opereiion between banker" and  manufacturers.

"Sure that was too bad," said Mr.  Waters.  "And now," said Lord Ambrose  looking exceedingly uncomfortable, *'I  have heard that there is a big party of  lynchers out."  "Yes, yes," agreed Mr. Waters slowly, "I heard that, too." He paused, and  then added for reasons of his own,  "horse stealing is a thing folk here  are very down on."  "So 1 understand," said Lord Ambrose; "it is a mos". unpleasant position to be in. I really don't know  what to do. !f T return to Petersville  I have neither the horse nor buggy  nor a penny left till my remittance  comes.

"Why, no," confessed Lord Ambrose, "that had never occurred to  me."  "I thought it wouldn't," said Wat-  ������*rs genially. "Well, now, three miles  down this trail is Seven Wells Farm,  and Abe Hagen, what runs it, wants  help the worst kind ot way. I was going there myself, but you can have  the job If you like for board, lodglnp*  and five dollars a month if you worlc  hard."  Lord Ambrose hesitated, but in the  end accepted.

The farm might  perhaps be used to some extent as a  place of useful service for prisoners  on parole, and these might perhaps  need more .coaching than their, work  would pay for, though on the other  hand it would relieve the government  of their keep in prison. It has been"  foudd in practice that prisoners so  treated do not need much watcliing.  There must be enough of truth m Mr.  Cahlll's calculation to i command respect for so sensible a proposal. The  farms would need at any rate to show  profitable culture in a way to convince  onlookers. It is said that wherever  there is a model farm in the, States  its influence is visible on agricultural  productiveness and prosperity for a  day's journey rounu it.

Easily tired,  appetite fiickle, sometimes headaches,  and a feeling of depression. Pimples  or eruptions may appear on the skin,  or iliere -___.ay he twinges of rheuma  tism or neuralgia. Any of these indicate that the blood is out of order-  that the- indoor life of winter Jias left  its mark upon you and may easily develop into more serious trouble.  Do not dose yourself with purgatives, as _o many people do, in tne  hope that you can put your blood  right. Purgatives gallop through the  system-and weaken instead of giving  strength; Any doctor will tell you  this is true. What you need in spring  is a tonic that will make new hlOod  and build up the nerves. Dr.���������Williams'  Pink Pills is the only medicine that  can do this speedily, safely and surely. Every dose of this medicine  makes new blood which clears the  skin, strengthens the appetite and  makes tired, depressed men; women  janofchildren bright," active and strong.  Mrs. S.E. Stephens, Ponoka, Alta.,'  says: "I suffered severely from headaches, and was badly run down in  health.

Britain's Mosquito Fleet  important Part Piayed by Trawlers in  Naval Warfare    -  Steam trawlers play an important  but little-known part in the present  war.  Thousands of these fishing vessels  are now engaged in mine sweeping,  in protecting battleships from hostile  submarines, and in military operations against the Germans in the shallows of the Belgian coast. After the  German raid on Scarborough and  other English east coast towns in December, steam trawlers picked up no  less than 1,500 floating mines in a  week.     The   work  is   dangerous,   for  *~*-%��������������� _.4- 4.1,-v /"���������- >k*������wt.,-. __, -wc > *> o <~* ***-���������! **-l-t i--_CI-<������  lXX.tX.LXV     KJk.    l_f-i.*C    \Jt C.JI -UJ-CHl.

The submarines  -juLUst v;G_-i6  ClCSe  to 1)6  ei-cC-iVc,  and on rising to th. surf a op to use  the periscope,- they are easily detected by the trawlers- There is also the  chance that they will get in a shot  at what the navy calls 'tin whales.'  A large fleet of trawler's will soon  take part in the Belgian -coast operations, and some already are there.  They carry one gun forward, another aft, and two abeam.  - The weapons are quick-firers of  comparatively small calibre, but the  boats, sailing in close under the lee  of the sand dunes and increasing the  general volume of fire, help to prevent enemy guns from taking a base  along the shore, and making a direct  target of the big monitors and cruisers.  Ext i.i ding Cultivation  Possibilities of the Canadian West as  a Grain Producer  Having unlimited' faith in our province aud the sister provinces of this  great northwest, we are rather too  ready to proclaim that we are the  granary of UOb empire. As a matter  of fact we are only a spout, though, if  we understood our mie interests*we  may become a veiy much larger one.  Great Britain imports about 230,000,-  C00 bushels of wheat each year, in  addition to the 70,000,000 bushels she  raises. Ol this quantity Canada contributes a little less than does the  Argentine, and a little more than either Australasia' or the United States,  about two-thirds as much as Russia  and not much more than half what India ships, to the British consumer.  Yet tliere are hundred-'"of t.iousa������u_  of good aero, of land as yet 'intille-1  in The northwest, and there is no reason why they should not supply a  very much greater percentage of England's wheat supply than now during  the present year, and probably for  several successive years Canadian  farmers ' are sure of good, perhaps  high prices, for all the grain they  have to sell.  These facts are evidently recognized by many young men, as the number of homesteads taken up this season is largely in excess of those taken  up last year. It is probable that many  will takp the present opportunity of  advancing their fortunes by leaving  the city, where the struggle has been  over hard, and turning to a pursuit  that can never be overdone, and  which never refuses a decent living  to a vigorous man���������Winnipeg Telegram.  f__m_-- u__l it<fnhme cut-".    ������HP ENGINE.

To mtet the demands of the  market for high quality fruit.  2. To obtain a high uniform grade  of fruit. Thinning'fruit produces uniformity in size and a larger size, and  so simplifies grading and packing.  3. To increase .the production.  Thinning encourages annual bearing  by preventing the tree from temporarily exhausting itself in any one year  and so result in a greater production  over a period of years, -   .  4 To combat fruit disease. In  thinning fruit all diseasep. specimens  are removed, thus eliminating a source  of snfsction.

Careful thinning of the crop has proved to be a  good method of accomplishing this  end. It is important that thinning  be practised as soon as the tree starts  bearing, for once a tree has established  the habit of bearing in alternate years  it is very difficult ,to bring it back to  regular bearing habit.  Thinning   Apples    and   Pears:���������So  much depends on circumstances that  it is impossible to   give any fixer, rule.  In general - it-is_be������J;.to_tbin  ^with.the  idea of   leaving a .certain number  of  apples  on a r tree,, the number being-  determined by the .'size of the tree, its  age .and vigor. Each fruit spur on the  tree must   be-regarded to a  great extent as  independent of all other fruit  spurs.    The removal of a single apple  from a particular fruit spur will affect  that spur more than will the removal  of   many apples from   other spurs on  the same tree. Having decided on the  number of apples that are to remain  on the  tree, the  thinning  should be  begun by first removing  all defective  specimens,   clusters'   of fruit   should  then   be thinned  so as not to  leaye  more than   two specimen   to a  spur,  and  where two are left on the  spur,  every alternate spur should usually be  picked  clean.   In order  to secure  as  even a distribution of fruit as is desirable, and   the proper amount of thinning, it will  be found hard   to follow  any  defln\fce rule.   It is a  matter  in  which   the grower, must rely on  his  j udgoment.   Some  clusters will heed  to be removed entirely, others reduced  to a single fruit and again others to a  cluster  of two, the .idea being  to reduce the crop to a sijRJp whore the tree  can mature it without exhaustion, to  reduce the crop on ouch fruit spur so  that tho spur  will not ho exhausted  and to leave as many spurs vacant of  fruit  as   is possible, consistent' with  securing  a good crop, so  that  these  spurs   will bo vigorous   tho following"  year.  Tho first thinning should bo done as  soon as possible after the .Tuno drop.  After this first thinning tt will bo  found ad visa bin to go over the trees  occasionally and remove any fruit that  has lator become diseased or injured/  and until one has had a good deal of  experience it wiii uuuaUy bo found  that much more fruit iu loft on tho  trees than one imagines and that further i liluoj.iij; ... tlcv.li.'-ulc*.

It is to be assumed that Belgium lis stripped of its  live stock. Northeastern France must  suffer heavily. While in Germany and  Austria, particularly the former, not  enough feed is produced to sustain the  live stock, and if imports are cut off  there is only one recourse���������send the  animals to the shambles. That this ig  being done is evidence',1, by the boast  that meat is comparatively cheap in  Germany- Scarcity and high price of  feed would be folioweu by cheap meat  for a season. But after that must  come the. day;-of reckoning. Swine can  quiclcly recuperate from such a drastic  liquidation, but it is a slow and expensive matter to build up a herd of  cattle, even if the breeding stock is  obtainable.���������Wall Street Journal.

The  speaker was Mr. Joseph Gagne, a well  known resident of this place and he  has  every reason to be enthusiastic  over the great Canadian Kidney remedy.  "For more than two years I suffered  from Kidney disease," Mr- Gagne continued. "It finally developed into  pieurisy and I was 'a very sick man  when my wife persuaded me to' give  Docld'B Kidney PUIb a trial.  "I took just three boxes and they  made me well."

Few Soils That Are Not Benefitted by  Deep Cultivation  On   many-   farms   th _ depth of the  cultivated soil is frequently limited to  6in. or thereabouts. The soil is turned  over year after year, and the pan or  hard    surface of the subsoil remains  untouched;    consequently   it   is   submitted  neither   to   the   air  nor   sunlight, both of which so materially assist in its decomposition, and in, preparing     it  for   the  roots   of  plants.  There are few soils that are not benefitted by breaking the pan and stirring  :���������in a word, deep cultivation, care be-j  ing taken, however, not. to bring, up '  the subsoil to the surface.    On farm  land  (excepting, of course, those isolated  spots where you have a deep,  well drainerl fertile land of a sandy  nature  stocked with humus)   it is  a  good plan to turn up with each ploughing, say, half an inch to an inch of  new soil each year'until the land is  sown   down   in   pasture   again.    The  greatest    agents *we have to help in  breaking down a stiff furrow are time,  heat; aud    cold���������atmospheric    conditions; then use the old style of grubber and heavy tine harrows, using the  modern    spring-tooth     cultivator     if  there are not enough horses on the  farm to pull the genuine article.    In  rare, very rare, cases it may be harmless  to  throw  the  subsoil  on top of  the   furrow;   but in the  writer's  experience  it, has  in    every    instance  wrought, incalculable harm and Irreparable damage.

Spent  ������<V_iH.*������'_ic_C-  ft  -9L   ���������O'Ju cua. ���������e-vSs^eo*  The hatred against' England with  which Germany is ringing is one of  ������tie most interesting examples- on record of Massen suggestion. It should  certainly commend itself to psycholo-  Sists. Within the comparatively  rief period that lias elapsed since  tee outbreak of the war this furious  ���������age against England has communicated itself to *, every section of the  populace. It is not an artificial  growth, but purely spontaneous. It  is absolutely sincere.* It is almost  wholly unanimous. ��������� The   foamings of  ciucx *jr  .._ ��������� -.1 **>������.  ������FC%1_, I.CWI- SXXX  Kuno Meyer are as characteristic of  the Anglo phobia of the German intellectuals as Herr Ernst Ldssauer's  unconsciously humorous Hymn of  Bate is ol the feelinc in literary  circles.  The seeds of this hatred���������"unser  Ha_s gegen England," as the newspapers exultingly call it ���������were not  planted by the Gersnan government  Knowing that thesev seeds lay dor-  zaant, or rather, to be accurate, had  already grown to quite a respectable  plant, it has done and is doing everything within its power to tend and  nurture tihs rabid enmity which has  apw become the obsession of sixty-  five million. souls. The German government has not been very successful  hitherto in its congenial labor of defamation and slander of the allies.  X_et us be frank, therefore, and admit  that its endeavors to fan the flame 'of  Hatred against the British in Germany  have been crowned with complete  success.  ��������� It would be a mistake to suppose  that this hatred of England in Germany is of recent growth. It does  not, it is true, date back to the old  Germany, though In the days of Bismarck England' was unpopular in  Germany, much as she was in most  other continental countries. It is,  however, a feature of the German  \>To-_������ST-s''o'C--GlQo'is -which has been developing during the past twenty years,  A atate~~o������ ���������_ eaee naturally checks the  Crank utterances of a nation, and  this state ot mind of tbe German peo  mans after the BOxer .expedition  seemed to open up to young Germany  a fair field of development in the Far  East. I remember going with a .party of school boys to a lecture delivered under the auspices of the German  Navy League on Germany's future in  China. That lecture mainly consist--1  ed of a violent tirade against England, l remember listening in silent  fury to ihe speaker's clumsy gibes at  England's policy of grab, and to the  oreary clap-trap which, used to be the  stock-in-trade of the boulevard Chau r-  inigts of former years.  The Boxer  expedition which threw  open tfcje wide world to a large number of _. young Germans undoubtedly  played a role in fanning this feeiing  against England, which has always  had its roots in Jealousy���������Neid���������th<it  cardinal failing of the German race.  The young German soldiers and sailors���������fresh from the rather grey surroundings of German university or  commercial school���������were electrified  to find themselves sent forth as the  Kultur bearers of imperial Germany.  But as their enthusiasm waxed at the  prospects opened to them by the uew  world which unrolled itself before  theni, their envy increased against the  mighty power whose well ordered  and contented colonies and settlements met them from sea to sea, from  Hamburg to Hong-Kong.  The envy of Great Britain in Germany is the envy of the young German- It is the bitter feeling with  which the poor clerk regards the rich  son of .his employer, or the small  tradesman the capitalist. Ambitious  young Germans of good family^, coming to London in the rather straitened .  circumstance'-' in which so many well-J  born Germ*-*.! i������-.n_iiies live, have often  displayed to -me by their manner,  rather than'their words, their irritation at the more affluent surroundings of the young men with whom  they come into contact in England.  Envy of British prosperity is very  marked ia press and public in Germany. The feeling may not always  find  concrete  expression,    but  it  is  Heligoland fortress Great Expense to  Germany  Many millions of* dollars have been  spent by Germany on Heligoland, that  little island made over as a sort of  "Greek gift" by Great Britain.  When the Island was ceded in 1890,  It was crumbling away fast, and was  being speedily eaten into, by the  ^vaves of the North Sea.  The Germans strengthened its red  marl and sandstone cliffs with great  granite buttresses 16 feet thick and  240 feet high. All cracks and fissures  in the crumbling cliffs were filled in  with ferro-concrete, so that now the',  sea battles in vain -against the walls  of the little island, which is only a  __ile in length by some one-third of-  a mile in width.*  To the south ot. the lower part of  the island was made a shelter for  tropedo boats, submarines and small  cruisers, at a cost of more than $10,-  000,000. It was to this shelter that  the German ships fled when attacked  and defeated in the battle of Heligoland Bight.  A high cliff separates * this low-lying  part  of  the  island,  the  "Unter*  A BRITISH AVIATOR WHO HAS LOOPED THE LOOP  Thrilling Experience of Airman who was Detailed to Drop Bombs  on  the   Enemy's  Position,  andr who  Accomplished His-  Mission after a Miraculous Escape from  Destruction  land," as it is called, "from the high  ���������land, or -.Oberland."

This envy of England  Is as much a, symptom in lite development -of modern uermauy as, other  marked features���������such as the grotvt.i  _f licentiousness as demo:.pirated by  the unhindered spread of "nig.it  life" and all It stands for.  Hatred of Engl-iu. .in Germany is  not a new thing. I first went to Germany as a school boy during the Boer  War. The deepest impression I have  retained of my first contact with German lads of my own age���������boys at the  grammar school in the little provincial town-where I was learning German���������was their gross offensivenoss  to me���������the stranger and guest of one  of their own comrades, as the representative of the British race.  Those were'-the' days when the ac  quisition of.   Kiao-Chau by the Ger-1 Dally Mail.  The young German's wrathful impotence to win for himself a position  in the world commensurate with that  of .modem Germany has brought  forth a. whole cro: of imperial-minded* Gei-man novels. In these becke,  many of which have enormous sales,  you will find very clearly marked the  devouring ambition, the bitter envy,  and the painful self-consciousness  which are the leading traits of young  qualities which have combined to  make the German the most disliked  nation of the world.  I have only indicated the resources  frdm which Germaty's hatred of  England' springs. It goes without  saying that the determining factor of  Its present degree of ferociousness is  due to the realization of the fact that  Germany's game to master the. world  has been foiled, and that England is  I the name of the spoil-sport.���������London  Everyone Should Help  The Farmers and How They Can Help  the  Red-Cross Society  We publish elsewhere in this issue  an appeal on behalf of the Red Cross  Society, by Dr. James W.

Further north are the newly built  Zeppelin sheds ana aeroplane hangars. It was from these sheds that  the two Zeppelins came to attack  the to?pedo boats and submarines  who convoyed the seven British airmen in their recent daring dash to  Cuxhaven.  To the left of the town," standing  near the edge of the cliffs, is a large  B&onumsnt which was erected in memory of the famous German poet,  Fallersleben, who wrote Germany's  n__st popular war song or hymn,  "Deutschland, Deutsc_.l_.nd . tJeber  Alles."

Qur Inadequate Agriculture  What our airmen have done every .  one knows in a more or less general  way, says a - writer in the London  Times. What they have felt while  accomplishing their work belongs to  themselves alone. But occasionally it  is permitted to learn something of  these feelings and sensations, and as  the psychology of aerial warfare is of  surpassing interest any light which  can* ^e thrown uT������on''it h.s ������*��������� value.  I have listened to a description of  what I shall call "psychology of a war-  flight," by one of our younger airmen.  The airman received orders to go to  a particular place and there drop  bombs. His route lay -along the sea  coast over a portion of country occupied by the enemy and ttrongly fortified against hostile aeroplanes. Shortly after setting-out the zone of fire  was entered and in order to avoid mishap it became necessary to take advantage of such cloud cover as could  be obtained. "I saw," my informant  said, "a heavy clouu in front of me,  hanging over the sea. It was a grey  cloud or I should not have entered it;  black clouds" are well known to be ex-  , ceedingly dangerous-"  I was flying at a height of about  became perfectly silent round about  me. I knew then that I had overdone  the pull and forced the machine up  almost vertically and in consequence  had stopped her.' And I knew that  now she would, probably slip back or  fall over sideways.  "One or other of these -things happened, i don't know which. In any  case, I felt my holding-in strap tight-  ������-****������ ._.*���������_    _-*l_r_-X- v  *T **������      U^M������\������V      ******  ,���������  7,500 feet, when I entered the cloud  For a few' moments all went well and  the cover was very welcome. The  cloud was of the fleecy order and I  could see my comp-ss and barometer  quite clearly. After a while, however,'  the mist became thicker, and I .felt  that I was losing my bearings. I was  flying quickly but I did not know in  what direction. My compass began  to swing round in the most erratic  way and I saw the barometer begin to  fall."  These manifestations did not, however, occasion' aiar___. But what followed was unpleasant. Owing to the  effect of the' strong and contrary currents which are met with in eve_'y  cloud the machine began to sway  about violently.

The wind  shrilled about him and tiie density of  the cloud' increased from moment to  moment. Nevertheless, it was still  possible to distinguish the indicators  and thus to form some idea of the  position of the machine in space.  Then suddenly everything became  quite dark, so that he could not s  much as see his hands in front of  him.  "I was not frightei.ed so far, at  least I do not think so. - _$ut I began  to think that to have been shot by the  enemy would have 'been the lesser of  the two evils- iHowever, thinking was  difficult; I required all my wits for  the work in hand. I was completely  lost. I did not even know at what angle the machine was flying. Then the  thought occurred to me that I might  have a slip-side or that the machine  might turn over, and I made up my  mind to try to rise up out of the  cloud. _ pulled the'elevator for this  purpose, and next mother.*, everything  ,'"-,.. -''''���������.    *������-    ���������  >���������  It was still as dark" as night.

But  suddenly and quite unexpectedly that  feeling passed .airway. I had tried  everything and failed. I was conscious of that. Now a wonderful sensation of calm took the place cf the  anguish. It was the most easy and  delightful sensation I have ever felt.  And meanwhile I was falling, I suppose, at the rate of about 200 miles  an hour.  ���������'The next thing I remember is that  my.   hoiding-in    belt hurst and that  cn_i..J_x-n.i.i-_������.__jr   jr.  jauiuicu  ill j   i.u663  lST-  ther under the indicator board and  gripped the seat with my elbows- I  had taken my feet off the rudder bar.  I was some inches out of the seat and  the machine was upside down. I  only knew it was upside down in a  vague way because I had left the seat.  I was quite happy and I had no anxiety of any kind. I did not feel anything. Then in a moment the aeroplane fell out of the cloud and I saw  the sea rushing up towards me. My  hands automatically moved the controls and at 1,500 feet the machine  righted herself. Then at intervals I  heard a curious snapning sound in "iv  ears and realised that I wa9 deaf. I  could 'not hear my own engine."  This deafness was due to the very  rapid descent and consequent sudden  increasing, atmospheric pressure. It  had a psychological effect, for it help-  Glass Eyes Are Becoming Scarce, and  the War la Responsible  Aniline dy.es are not the only things  In which Germany has established a  monopoly.

But there-is yet another explanation  which has not received the consideration Us reasonableness demands.

But he continued on.  his way, mastering himself until he  was able -to launch bin bombs.  The first of these achieved its purpose and he saw that it had done so.  Immediately a reaction o^ feeling set  in. He confessed, "I was so happy  that I shouted. I simply couldn't contain myself. I felt In all my pockets  for something else to throw down. All  T could find was my matchbox, and  so I threw that." It testifies to the  splendidly attuned state of his nerves  that next day he was able to carry  out his work more or less as if nothing had happened.
