He stated  that for the fiscal year ending June  30, 1913, the K.V. line had gross earnings of $30,866 and expenses of $41,608  cr a loss of $10,882.

On   Huyfivs   left,  as    he    well  '.knew, there was another post, but at  this at first he dared not look.  Then by a great effort he turned  his head and looked. There it wus,  and, most horrible to see, there Eira  stood against it, she, too, secured  by a chain drawn fast ubdut Iter  waist. She was very'-pale, but she  held herself upright, withy liter hands  clasped before her and her face turn?  ed upwards. She had herself, in order to avoid being handled; Walked  to the stake, placed herself in position  with her back to it, and .had with  her own'.hands',, adjusts.-!-the chain  about her slender body.

Keese continued- "There is no need to try you  at all, for we have.all seen you doing  what not a man of ns would ever  have believed the meanest white woman living would have done. You  have gone against your own race and  your own sex. and you have been  ready to help the murderers of another white woman to escape. Worse  even than that, yon actually tried to  escape with them." -  His face and voice expressed a genuine horror that was stamped also on  iiiG face of every listener.

The loathing and abhorrence they felt towards the two  men was intensified tenfold towards  the woman who they thought had betrayed her Womanhood, her sex, her  race, everything that they held sacred.  "You pack of fools," began Hugh at  the top of his voice, but he got no further, for the man Jabe_ promptly aimed a heavy blow at him. Hugh guarded it with his arm rnd so avoided the  full force of it, but it struck him down  al! the same. -  "Bring them along,' said Editor  Keene.  Men seized hold of them and hurried them to the spot where those  throe post's had been fixed upright in  the ground.  Another wagon laden with wood  had joined the first that had issued  from the bush. Both were quickly approaching; behind, a third was visible, loaded, too. with dry wood.

He felt something hard and  tight drawn round his waist, and thero  was a sound of someone 'hammering  behind.

He  was aware of an impulse to open his  mouth and scream, and scream, and  scream, aud never cease- To the preternatural clearness with which the  moment before he had seen'and understood everything there now succeeded a dull haze of horror, tiiruugh  which he seemed to see the men  about him, like devils moving to. and  fro. He could not believe in the reality of  what was happening.  "What are you doing with that  wood?" he said to the men busy about  hini-  Tliey looked at him sideways, but  none of them answered. They were  very pale and silent, but very resolute.  He lifted his eyes to the heaven  above with a belief that from there  same voice must come, some sign be  shown, io save them from a. fa.te so  awful. But the sky, soft with the  shades of evening, showed nothing,  and the wood the men were piling  about him reached now above his  middle. .     , ��������� .  From the sky his eyes turned to  search over the prairie, for he thought  he might see an army there, marching to their rescue. But all that was  visible upon its vast expanse was a  few buggies and wagons, and two  men on horseback, and a woman riding. Most of these were just settlers  of the neighborhood hastening lest  they sohuld be late for a rare spectacle. But all were not, for one of  the foremost was an old man with a  strange, noseless face who rode wildly* and behind him, a long way be-  liind him, the one woman rode desperately too, as if with some purpose other than the mere fascination  of horritle t.h'ngs.  Hugh turned his eyes away from  the prairie and looked towards his  uncle. Mr. Hetherington was still  unconscious, and Hugh envied him.  Then the thought struck him to wonder what his colleagues of tne London Stock Exchange, those respectable, top-hatted, frock-coated men,  would think it they could see the senior partner in Messrs.'Hetherington,  Financiers, Lombard street, in his  present position. The incongruity of  the thing seemed to him so wild that  he laughed.  "Hullo," said .Tabe?: limit.'who was  one of these arranging the dry wood  about him, "glad you see the fun of  the thing."  "Got to answer for this to England,  hey,  Mr.  Britisher?"  said  another.  "Why. no," said Hugh; "to God, I  think."  They looked a Utile uncomfortable  nt that, but said nothing. Their work  finished, they went away, and Hugh  wns left standing breast high In carefully arranged faggots or wood. Ho  turned his head and looked towards  Eira. Wood wns piled so high about  her that only her bond was visible,  but seeing him looking she again  waved hor lmnd to him.

"Boys." shouted someone from the  background, "here is old Noah Siddle  coming to see his pet niggers burnt."  Ia, fact, it was Noah Siddle who,  riding wildly', oh a gaddleless horse,  now drove his way into the centre  of the crowd, and in the centre of It  fell rather than jumpuu to'the-ground.  "Mr. Siddle. Mr. Siddle!" shouted  Hugh, striving against his chain, "tell  them we are white men and innocent/' >  "Take that old man ---way," said  Editor Keene. "What are you coming,  interfering for, Noah Siddle?

Noah looked wildly round.

"Oh, you know we are white men���������  you know it!" cried Hugh despaair-  ingly.

Someone told me Eira���������but that's impossible. Please te.l me where she  is, for she's a good girl, you know."  Although no one answered him, he  saw how they all looked in one direction, and he moved his position and  looked that way, too, past the loaded  wagon. Now he saw Eira, looking at  him palely over the piled wood that  surrounded her, and at that he gave a"  great and lamentable cry.  "She is the worst of them all," saht  Keene. "These brute beasts only followed their owji  heasty nature;  ��������� she is a white woman herself, and  she helped them���������"  "You fools, you blind fools!"  old man cried.

Conflict  The Press Bureau's official eye-witness al the British front sends a new  version of German aims gleaned from  captured German officers, who say  that the Austrian empire is to be dismembered, part of it going to Italy  and part of it to Germany. This is Hk  price, according to these officers Au'_-  Irla must pay for the failure-of her  arms.  tt is said in addition by these men  that Germany will Insist upon Ihe  annexation of Belgium to a new Gorman confederation, to include all Germanic peoples and the Scandinavians.  Antwerp, according to these views,  which are pronounced with, great assurance, is lo be made an international port, and the whole of this  scheme is to be brought about through  'the offices of the Pope.  "Conversation 'with captured officers and the better educated prisoners  lias thrown considerable light on the  views of the general situation now  held by the German army.  "It is freely acknowledged that Germany started the war, but opinion  seems to be divided regarding her intention to occupy Belginm permanently. The belief is that she would not  have crossed the _Ieuse if England  had remained neutral. The belief is  thai she would have advanced  through South Belgium ������nd Luxemburg, thinking Great Britain would  take it in the right way, as long as"  Germany maintained that she desired  no territory in Europe not already occupied by German-speaking people. It  is admitted that Germany's strategic  frontier in the Yosges must be improved.  "The most important poiut in the  views now held is a frank admission  that since the Austrians have failed  so badly in the present way and have  had to be bolstered up by the armed  strength of Germany she will have to"  pay for it. and must hieeu.  "The German prisoners hold that  the Austrian empire will cease to  exist. The Germans will give away  some of its territory to Italy, and will  include the Gerii.an,speaking portion  of Austria in the German empire,  and also Luxemburg.  "The Germans will welcome the  Duchy of Poland as a buffer between  themselves and Russia, and will in-  .sist on Belgium joining-th'e GeTinan  zollerein, Antwerp becoming an international port. ,'  "There will he a g^fat central Eur-  "-i.be Germanic  'the Scandinavian.

Has Many Advantages Over Those  ���������, In Use by Other isiatlons  The British navy has developed a  new type of mine, which, according to  the Scotsman, marks a new era in this  branch of warfare. The German and  French oflating mines have not presented such a very difficult problem,  because it hati been comparatively  easy to sweep them up, owing to their  suspension tackle. The new British  mine has no floats and no tackle. It  can be ejected from a torpedo lube or  Incontinently thrown overboard. If  desired, it can be set to rest qii the  sea floor until the minute chosen by  those placing it, when it will come  up, not to the surface, but to tho  proper depth at which to meet the  rushing bows of a ship.  As soon as the mine, floating free,  reaches a certain depth there is set  up a series of movements which put  into operation a flny propeller, and  Mils promptly kicks the mine up to  the proper hivel, and then stops until again called upon.

Number of iron Finger Rings Sent to
German Sympathizers Held Up
The postal authorities at Ottawa
have held a number of iron finger
rings addressed to German sympathizers in Canada, and at the same Ume
have unearthed a peculiar scheme to
assist the fatherland. The plan is being carried out by certain German
newspapers in tne United States. Peo-_
pie are asked to send in their gold
rings, which arc said to be forwarded
to Germany, ostensibly to "assist the
Red Cross Fund, but it is believed to
help swell the kaiser's gold reserves.
In return for the gold ring the donor
is sent an iron band to be worn as a
mark of devotion to his country. The
rings are inscribed in .German:-"To

Gasoline  and   Explosives
Secretary Lane announces that the
United States Bureau of Mines has
entered into a co-operative arrangement with the Aetna Exposives Company of New York, for the development on a commercial scale of the
process discovered" by Br. Walter F.
Rittnian, one of the bureau's experts,
for the manufacture of benzol and
tulol from petroleum.
Through Dr. Rittman's discoveries
it is expected bases for dyestuffs and
high explosives heretofore almost exclusively imported from Germany will
be drawn from petroleum and independent producers will be able to
double their output of gasoline.
Under the agreement the Aetna
company  undertakes   to  devote    the

"We had three trenches to take, and
expected a hard job. The air seemed on fire. The signal was given and
we charged, but the usual hail of
bullets  was  lacking.
"On searching the first trench we

Craze For Gasoline Engines Fast Dy

"Saskatchewan farmers are apparently coining to the conclusion that
gasoline'tractive'power is loss economical than that supplied by animals.
The Hon. W, R. Motherwell recently
stated that the Saskatchewan Investment Co. at Meringo had discarded
tho six large engines they had in
favor of oxen, 160 oxen being required
to do the'old work. At the Horse
Breeders' convention held in Iteglna,
tlio secretary in his report claimed
that the craze for gasoline englneB
was fast dying out and that the ubo
of horses was being reverted to. The
result is that mixed farming in this
province has received a considerable
impetus. I

hundred dives    were    made,    and although  great depths  were    reached,

She kept the shutters closed at

But one night, when reading the

The newspapers said that if the

she would not go down into the cellar.

And not only do these gentlemen  graciously retire from their high  offices as provincial advisors, but it  is stated on good authority that  most of thera have decided to quit  political life completely���������along with  three or four ordinary M.P.P.'s���������so  that the vacancies their withdrawal  will create may be filled by acola-  mation by Liberal members, thus  giviucr the new premier a good  working majority without putting  setting forth briefly but thoroughly  the advantages that undoubtedly  will accrue to the prairie people by  purchasing British Columbia fruit  in preference to the second  grade stuff shipped in from the  United States,  The distribution of such a leaflet  is a move in the right miction,  but to do the jaiaadimim amount of  good it wiii have to foe followed up  closely by the liferent fruit-selling  agencies in seeing to it that the  product of the British Columbia  orchards is made available to the.  prairie buyers at a price that, quality considered, the worst old skinflint in the grain-growing areas  will not be able to silence the dictates of the''buy-made-in-Canada-  prodncts" conscience now pretty  thoroughly awakened in most Cana-  i minuf lifnf  .__,������_______-       pggpj*  HI  _l_ ~lx.Z ���������  By keepiug packing and package  charges down  to the minimum, by  selling direct  to the consumer at  every centre possible and to the retailer, in   every other instance, and j  giving a uniform honest grade, this  province  can  dispose of its  1915  crop at a good price to the grower,  and at a price to the consumer that  will  create  a  demand  that  B. G.  will not be able to supply even in  ent the Liberals are in a minority  of six in the legislature; if the new  arrangement does not miscarry  they will have a majority of fourteen, including Mr. Speaker.  While this unprecedented action  was entirely unexpected just yet,  those who have followed political  affairs in the postage stamp province of late rather expected the  downfall of Boblinism at a not distant date.

That was last season when  the supply was abnormal and  financial depression prevalent. This  .year when financial conditions are  more promising and the apple crop  is sure to be curtailed it might be  possible for a well-organized selling  agency to dispose of several cars at  different points on the same plan at  a slightly higher price���������getting the  veal money without any thirty or  sixty day wait.  It strikes us this system of marketing should not be overlooked.  The real prosperity from this year's  crop will be felt first in the smaller  centres where the grain is marketed. At points where the retailor  lias a reputation for pushing the  nale of frail at a reason able uiiu&'ui  of profit it may be found wise to  let him have the trade in that particular section, but in places where  the retailers' purchases of fruit is  below the district's reasonable  needs no, selling agency should hesitate to do business direct with tho  ������������������on hi inter.

While the passing of Manitoba's  administration into Grit hands may  affect the federal Conservative  organization of. that province to  some extent the saner element in  the party will more or less openly  rejoice that the end has come. Several days before the end came the  Ottawa Citizen, which has quite a  reputation for beitig Premier Borden's mouthpiece, remarked:  "Manitoba methods are bringing  disgrace on Canada. They have  done more than one ill service in  this Dominion in recent years; from  the plundering of natural resources  to tho insulting of a British minister of the crown, from the neglect  of state education to the organization of ignorance and greed and  vice into a political machine, and a  low standard of political morality."

Dis-  rMiasing the liklihood of all tho  British Columbia overseas troops  boiug mobilized in the Okanagan  the Herald says:  ''Vernon may be an ideal spot  but why wasn't Cranbrook  considered? Vernon must havo  a representative atOttawa and  some strong politioal friends  which wo must admit Cranbrook does not powioss."  If wc read the paragraph aright  the Herald seems surprised that Ii.  K. Groou. M.P., has not iho same  pull" at Ottawa as tho member  for iho constituonOy   in which V������r-  session of the Borden cabinet. Most  assuredly Mr Burrell would be in  attendance, and very likely he  would have"a good word for Vernon  ���������and seeing his word gogsjon matters of govermental affairs of this  sort so far as B^O* is . concerned; it  is not difficult to imagine how  Cranbrook, Kamloops, and other  centres not represented by Mr.  Burrell were en tirely forgotten.  While it is very much to be  regretted that Mr. Burrell apparently insists on all the good things,  militially speaking���������and in some  other respects as well���������must be  eventually conserved for the benefit  of his constituents, he is not the  only sinner in this respect. Some  years ago the Sifton government in  Alberta decided to experiment with  demonstration farms. It was decided to establish six of them, and  by coincidence, possibly, each and  every one of these farms was placed  in a constituency represented by a  oabinefc minister; Premier Sifton  even having oiftrtit Vermilion.  If the all-Kootenay regiment is  not quartered at Cranbrook (and  we have T. D. Caven's assurance  that it will be) The Bevimw will  bo almost as much disappointed as  tho Herald, but it,is hardly fair to  acouse Mr. Green of laying down  on the job. B. F. was sitting in at  a game where the cards were  staoked against him; his bobtail  flush was nowhere with the Burrell  full house of cabinet ministers. In  tho way of "pull" in other direo"  tions Mr. Green lias not been found  wanting, and as membors go thoso  days wo think tho Herald will  agroo with us that Kootenay's  M.P. has hoon on tho job persistently and pretty successfully.  elected and getting away to a good  start."

Investigation has shown-this disease to be Apple  Tree Anthracnose, commonly known  as "Black Canker."    '" -  Apple Tree Anthracnose, Canker  as it is variously, known is~ one of the  most serious diseases with which the  fruit growers of "Vancouver Island and  other heavily humid sections of the  Province have to contend. The disease is extremely virulent and owing  . to improper methods of control employed in the'past has badly damaged  many orchards. In spite of this however, the disease can be easily controlled by proper spraying. (In spraying  operations carried on for the Provincial Government in 1913 and 1914, the  writer completely eradicated Anthracnose from several badly infested  orchards.)  Description:���������In general the disease  is characterised by the formation -of  sunken dark colored cankers: These  are most frequently found .on small  branches, but may not uncommonly  be seen on large branches and on the  trunk of the tree.  The cankers begin their development sometime during November and  soon appear as small reddish-brown  spots on the bark. The affected tissues beneath the bark present a dis-  eolored-water-soaked appearance. The  spots develope very slowly during the  winter months, but rapidly during  March and April, becoming elliptical  in outline, and the surface sinking and  drying, which in combination with  the normal growth of the surrounding  healthy tissues prodnces a crack in the  bark, surrounding  the   canker.   The  cambium becomes active in the spring;  after which activity is confined to  changes which take place in the bark  within the canker. By midsummer  little conical, elevations in the bark  may be observed. These finally burst,  -.wealing a cream colored mass of fungus tissues. These are fruiting structures, and produce spores in great  numbers.. After the spores, are given  off the canker does not itself spread  and usually heals over quite readily.  The fungus causing the disease however, has been isolated from the heart  wood beneath the cankers on the  branches of the apple two years after  the spores have been given A off, but it  would not appear that the fungus is  of any importance as a heart-rot. The  disease attacks the fruit as well as the  tree, causing the fruit to rot. This  fruit rot sometimes appears in. the  orchard, especially if the-fruit is allowed to hang late on the trees, but usually it is developed mstorage.  Apple tree Anthracnose also attacks  the pear, though the disease is not as  seiious or as common on the pear,  as on the apple. Canker disease similar to Apple Tree Anthracnose are  found on the cherry, plum, prune and  quince.  Injuries : Branches are weakened  by the presence of the cankers and frequently break off. Small trees and  Hmbs are girdled and consequently  killed. In many cases even fairly large  limbs and small trees are girdled hy  repeated reperted infections. The  loose dead bark of cankers shelter  Wooly Aphis and other pests, and the  wounds afford ingress to various diseases.  Treatment:���������The treatment is preventative and consists in coating the  tree with a film of fungic.de at that  time of the year when the spores that  cause the disease are being given off  from old cankers.  In badly infected orchards where the  disease is on the increase and it is desired to eradicate it ih the shortest  possible time regardless of any soiling  or other injury that may result to that  year's crop, spray about the middle of  September, using 4-4-40 Bordeaux. In  addition spray with 6-6-40 Bordeaux  as soon as the fruit is picked, and two  weeks later spray again with 6-6-40  Bordeaux.  Where an orchard is badly infected,  but where it is desired not to soil the  fruit, omit the first spray in the above  recommendation, but apply the second  and third.  . When an orchard is only slightly infected or where a preventative is desired, spray once each fall with 6-6-40  Bordeaux, applying the spray as soon  as the fruit is picked. When* Anthracnose ls^at all troublesome this spray  should never be omitted. Once the  UiseH-je lias been fairly well ule<_U6u  out of an orchard tbis one spraying  will keep the disease under control.  ��������� As Anthracnnse cankers may prove  a source of infection for possibly three  years, it is advisable that cankers be  cut out and the wounds painted over,  however this may be practical only in  ���������youngorchards*7      - -.     - . r   '-  News of Kootenay  _ Natal is to have a co-operative store.

While  this does no particular harm to anybody, I think you will agree with me  that it is not j-_k agreeable sight to  passengers travelling on the C.P.R.,  and that it is disagreeable in many  ways. In many places they have not  only selected such a place for the  dumping ground, but also for a nuisance ground, and frequently one sees  a dead horse just outside of a town or  village, and close to a railway fence.  There is really no reason why suph a  condition should exist, as a suitable  site could easily be secured at a more  remote point if attention is directed, to  the matter. I have frequently heard  passengers comment on these disagreeable sights, Thanking you for space.  Winnipeg, F. E.

Michigan     Central     Railroad   Mulcted  With Heavy Fine For Failing to  Collect Charges  The close supervision exercised by  Commission  over the United States railroads is  illustrated by the heavy line imposed  yesterday by the federal courts on  the Michigan Central Railroad cs  $2*1,000 for failing to collect ���������demurrage charges from tbe National Fire-  proofing Company. In the case of  these deniurrage -charges the unfortunate railway is sometimes between  the devil and the deep sea; for the  shipper, particularly the large shipper,  is often slow in paying, whereas the  watchful commission, suspecting a  concealed rebate, is ever threatening  punishment. A fine _.uch as the one  just imposed will probably fores' the  railroads to insist on prompt collections, and the Canadian Board of  Railway Commissione.s may follow  suit. Shippers who have been storing their goods on freight cars at the  railroad's expense will then no longer be able to escape payment by putting up excuses or playing on the fact  that they are good customers of the  -ailroad.-���������Edit-rial from the Gazette  March 26th"1915.* "       " " '  Doing Wonders  For Rheumatism  To theMeritof Lydia E.Pinfc-  hanvs Vegetable Compound during Change  of Life.

Abroad, Should Help Here  Buy Canadian  __ ar _ _~_ _  ib/a __ _*_-ft    a_i_-������������*v_**3<a  Apparently there are^some persons  in Canada who do not understand the  nature   and  object  of  the   campaign  now   being  carried  on,  through conferences  and' the  press,   looking    to  greater food production. We might be  tempted to suggest that they could be  doing better if they would try to understand the nature of the campaign,  and the reasons for it before, rushing  in to criticize it or condemn it. In a  time of national peril, when true conception  of  citizenship leads men  to  try to do their best for their country,  the least that might   be- expected is  that those who are doing no_._i-___ beyond   following   their   ordinary   vocations, and who are untouched by, or  are indifferent to, tbe war conditions,  should at least not hamper those who  are   trying   to   do   something,     even  though it may not be the best or in accordance   with   others'   views.     Perhaps in time, as tin- war and its awful  effects  come  nearer and  nearer  to us, we  shall find all    the people  striving to contribute something, even  if in their effort mistakes    may  be  made.   In times of national peril personal preferences should give way to  national needs.   Those who go to the  - front have their duty clearly defined.  In the trenches.   They can turn back  to us, and say, "What are' you at home  doing to help us?    We have left behind a place t? be vlled, a wor _ to be  done.   Do your duty there as we are  trying io do our duty here."  And what is the duty of those^cf  us who do not go to the front? Clearly and unmistakably it is that of increasing as much as possible the food  so necessary for tbe empire. And ]  why? First and foremost- for patriotic '  reasons. The empire has told us that  she needs all the food that we can  produce. Some people question the  advisability or the necessity of this  line of appeal. The man that can  _ee ho patriotism in production when  is himseii most iu need  ** What" Canada  of patriotic stix-iuiation  needs most of all today is patriotic  enthusiasm.

X.._xxxxx  ' prepared to bank the future of Canada on the true loyalty and patriotism of the farmers*, if they did not  have it our future would not be worth  much. And that patriotism can be  stimulated.  Secondly,  we  base our appeal on  gratitude.    When over seven million  people sacrifice their farms, their factories and their people, for freedom,  for liberty, for humanity, for us, there  should be no hesitation In our res-  sponse. All history, sacred or profane,  shows no parallel.   We are enjoying  comfort and safety because brave lit  tie Belgium stood up as a people to  withstand the oncoming rush ot Prussian militarism that aimed to crush  the liberty and safety of France and  the British empire.    Consider    what  might have, happened if Belgium also  had consldsn-d as "a scrap of paper"  the  treaty  that  Britain  guaranteed  Aftor relying on the strength of that  treaty and prospering because of It  for nearly eighty years, it la suddenly torn to fragments.  What do .a  it  mean to.us?    A people as numerous  ns Canadians will stand by it and sacrifice themselves for it.   Have we no  gratitude that wo. are not reduced to  a German colony or forced to pay an  indemnity that would have placed a  mortgage on every home and every  farm in Canada? We owe it to our  children to show our gratitude by pro-  .li,-cing more for Belgium, and for  France and for our empire.  Thirdly, we have our duty to Canada,    stiall we continue as a nation?  We have borrowed nearly three billion dollars to build our railroads, our  ���������-anals and our harbors, to carry on  our   governmental   undertakings,   to  equip   our  cities,   to     construct' our  great industrial plantr.   This country  is "like  a  farmer who  has  borrowed  five thousand dollars from the bank  to  improve  his  property.     Suddenly  the  call  comes  to  meet  the  obligation.    What is to !:e done? We must  raise  the   money,   or  we   are   bankrupt. Canada had the resources which  must  be  called  oa  now  to  produce  more.    The most productive resource  is   the   farm,  and  now   the  national  appeal  is  for  the  farms  of  Canada  to  increase  prcductio.-,  so  that  our  exports .shall be increased to meet our  obligations   in  the  foreign   markets,  particularly in England.  It  is  a national problem, not merely a farmers'  problem.   It can be met if all the operating forces  will  co-operate.    Better  transportation   facilities     are   called  for, more agricultural credit is needed, mere labor will be of great help.  The   railroads   and   steamship   companies must not hamper by increasing  rates;   ihe   banks   should   Uuclci"-  stand  that in this special  call they  have  a duty to perform;  the towns  and  cities "should help  to  distribute  the surplus labor.    Unless  all these  organizations  realize  that  this   is  a  national  question   calling tor  hearty  co-operation we shall not meet fully  the empire's call.    >-  Finally, there is the duty of the individual to himself. Increased production means more for everyone who  meets this call, more for himself and  his family. And uiis applies to the  city and town man���������the man with the  backyard and the vacant lot. Unpro-  ducing land in town and city will this  year show a lack of patriotism. Any  town or city in Canada tbat this year  has unproductive, land with idle workers will be guilty of a national crime.  Three propositions have' been poit  up to the farmers of Canada in tli*������  government campaign:  1. Grow staple rops, such as can  be stored and transpbrted.JThere will  be a special demand for wheat, oats,  peas, beans and flax.,  2. Increase   production   per  acre;  rather than increase acreage- Better  cultivation  and  the  best    seed  will  double or treble the yield under favorable weather conditions.  3. Particular attention should be  given to live stock. The war put up  the price of cereals more than the  price of meats���������but there is coming  a world shortage of meats. It was in  Bight before the war. Out of the  great cattle countries in only one  have -the cattle kept pace with the  people.  . The meat consumption by Canadians is double that of tho French and  fifty per cent, more than that of the  British. With high prices coming it  will be well for the people of this  country to cut down somewhat their  meat allowance and to more fruit and  vegetables. It mny be that this war  will result in Canadians learning  how to grow vegetables and how to  cook and eat them. The health of the  people will be thereby improved.  One of-the noteworthy characteristics of this campaign of Patriotism and  Production Is that, while the needs of  tho empire are being served, the  health and wealth of our people will  also bo conserved and Increased.���������  C.'C.

Her  imports have exceeded her exports by  a y&iy largs a__ev._.t fcr many years,  and this adverse trade balance is an  accumulating debt which, must sooner  or later be paid- The "Made in Canada" movement lias up to the present resulted in little but talk, because  none of us "act in line with our  preaching. Instead of it being anybody's business, it ought to be everybody's business, and what is everybody's business must be each body's  business or it becomes nobody's business.  About five million dollars of footwear, cloth, rubber-and leather, is imported by Canada every year. There  is competition among Canadian manufacturers, which insures fair treatment to the consumer, and there is no  reason why every man, 3_oman and  child- in Canada should not be able  to get Canada-made shoes. This is one  example of many.  Canada last year imported eleven  million dollars' worth of green vegetables and fruit���������much of this quite  vnnecessary���������and^ it is one ot the  signs of the extravagance, selfish indulgence and ostentatious display of  which the abnormal prosperity Canada., enjoyed for a period was the  cause.  We have a population of eight millions in Canada.

Alleged by the Germans  The Belgian government has issued  a protest against the German allegation that documents found    in    the  archives at Brussels showed that Belgium had forfeited her neutrality before the outbreak of tha war. After recounting the conversations which  took between the British and Belgiau  military officers in 1906 and 1912,  which, as previously stated by Sir Edward Grey, the British foreign minister, had "reference only in the situation that would be created if Belgian  neutrality had already been violated,"  the Belgian proiest says:  "This Belgian��������� government declares,  on its honor .that not only was no  convention ever made, ;.ut also that  neither of the two governments ever  made any advances or propostions  Concerning the conclusion of any such  convention. Moreover, the minister  of Great Britain at Brussels, who  alone could contract engagements in  her behalf, never intervened in these  conversations, and the whole Belgian  fninistry are ready to pledge themselves on oath that no conclusio-i  arising from these conversations was  ever  brought  before  the cabinet   or  even laid before one single membef  of it.  "The demands which ' the Ger-  mands discovered give evident j ot all  this. Their meaning is perfectly  clear, provided that no part of them  is either garbled or suppressed. In  face of the calumnies repeated again  and. again our government, faithfully  reflecting Belgian uprightness, considers that it is its duty to inflict  once more on the spoiler of Belgium  the brand of infamy, his only legitimate reward.  "It also takes the opportunity of  declaring in answer to allegations,  whose malevolence   is obvious, that:  'First���������Before the declaration of  war, no French force, even of tSie  smallest size, baa entered Belgium,  and no trustworthy evidence can be  produced to contradict this affirmation.

Such ������.n addition to the wages now paid in Canada "w-ould mean . omething in the reduction of unemployment and in the  maintenance of a fair standard of pay  for the working classes. It is of far  j n.ore importance to the wage-earners  themselves than i. is to our manufacturers that the "Made in Canada"  movement should -take practical and  permanent form.  War in Europe may lead to Canadians learning more about their own  country and its holiday resorts. Not a   _ _  single dollar that can possibly be' kept i -iuropeai*. ������ar  in Canada should be allowed to escape, and the thought I would like to  impress is that it should be the business of each and every Canadian to  act in line with the "Made in Canada"  movement and, in so far as our influence may extend, to see that others  act in like manner.  If the leaders of the trades and  labor unions would turn their attention to the "Made in' Canada" movement and encourage their members to  give it strong support, the) desire to  purchase home-made goods would  take firmer hold of the people of the  country and hundreds of thousands  or dollars would be kept in Canada  and paid in wages.to Canadian workmen which now go to help- the mechanics and laborers of foreign countries.  The workingmen of Canada owe it  to themselves to extend this movement by a campaign of education and  publicity that will make itself felt in  every home in the land.  The Canadian manufacturer, on his  part, should see that the goods he  turns out are the best he can possibly make. This is his patriotic duty  as well as good business.���������J.

Suffragette Leader Gets Loud Praise  as a  Popular War Orator  "Patriotic fervor draws thunderous cheers in place of old-time jeers,"  Is the way a London newspaper heads  nn article on Mrs. Pankhurst as a  popular war, orator. The paper itself  is violently antl-suffragottc, but honors the war truce which the suffragettes announced at the beginning ot  the war.  It was- only a year ago when t.  speech by Mrs. Punkhurst was a signal for a riot, if allowed to proceed  at all. Now she is described by a reporter in these words: "A graceful,  dignified figure tlio suffrage leader  makes as sho faces the audience.  Over a becoming black dress she  wears a black lace-shawl; suspended  from a thin gold ehaln Is a lorgnette  which she does not jibc. Tho Union  .Tack centred across a curtain  green forms tho Htage backgroupu."  Hor women followers still send up  fiorul*ol-eiings to tho stage, says the  reporter.

Somo of Mr. Hubbard's general observations on the war for which the  kaiser is responsible are pithy gems,  and, although they will :.ot be palatable to Germans ea;S, seem to hit the  mark every time.  War,, runs, one of them, as a corrective for industrial jealousy, would be  like making love with a bludgeon,  managing a kindergarten with a whip,  or Introducing faith, hope and charity  with the aid of thumbscrews.  The one intent of modern commerce  is to bestow a benefit. The one intent  of war is to intimidate, cripple, maim,  and destroy. Commerce stands for  help and happiness, war symbols suffering and disease.  War destroys your market, limits  your territory, lessens your prospect.  All the porgress of the last thirty-  three years lies a jumbled, tumbled  mass of fears and tears, In the dust  and dirt ot the gladiatorial arena-  Nero, the fiddling fiend, with his  carelessness in the use of fire, never  burned property In all his pestilential  career worth one-half that destroyed  when the kaiser's troops applied the  torch to storied Louvain.  Bill thinks he Is a Superman, but  some day the devil will explain to him  that he is only a supernumerary.  The crazy imlser will not win.
