I did not expect that any ot the  guests of the castle would make their  appearance at that hour. The footsteps stopped.

'.'-C.P.R, ' ������������������'.'������������������-. '  Nothing in municipal history excited -more interest than tho recent  adoption by the city of New York of  th������ C.P.R. method of purchasing  supplies. New York orders for municipal purchases total $22,000.'���������worth,  of goods each year and found that  there was much duplication _.ud  waste, some of the departments paying retail prices for the same goods  as were purchased wholesale by others- Under theyC.P.R. system everything is centralized so as to cut out  the possibility of duplication either in  purchase or payment of goods, while  the terms are naturally all the more  in favor of the railway. .Now. .York  Gity sent a special investigator rouiv.l  the Continent to study methods of  purchasing supplies, aud he decided  that the C.P.R. system was 'the  best for efficiency and saving."  was naturally the source of  gratification to Sir Thomas Shaugh-  nessy, who was himself at one time  purchasing agent for the C.P.R.., and  established the present system.

This  much  Farm n>in the Ntrih  Wheat Frcm the Peace River Valley  of Good Quality  Wh en tit e lianl repoi 1 of Sir Sandf or J-  Fieioing, as -chief.-engineer of the Caih-  adi.iu I'acitib Uu il way, was published,  thirty-eight years ago, it furnished.;  th3 t'aiuidians of that time with a  mass of new but scientific information  regarding the area now included in  the province of Alherfa. Tho surveyor's reports show-vj. that among the  various "passes" through the Kocky  Mountains that might be used in the  .construction of _. transcontinental  railway, three were more ..available,  than any of the others; the one usod'  lat.3i- for the Canadian Pacific ihain  line the ue used quite recently for  .the' National Transcontinental... and  Canadian Northern lines, Ap.nd the one  th rough which th e Peace River runs  from west of tho Rockies east toward  Lake Athabasca. Of these three the  first was, from a railway engineer's  viswp'oiut, the most difficult, while the  Peace River .valley' was the easiest.  The only objection to the last named  was its far north location, and Sir  Sandford's cdioice ultimately was the  middle pass, known as the Yellow  Head.  During   this   long   interval   of   time  it has been matter of common ..knowledge that there is iu the. Peace River  district,   east   of the   Rocky     Mountains, an extensive area . of. good, arable laud, that the'climate-"is favorable, and that much of the country1 is  well watered by nature;   This view of  its ��������� capabilities   for   agricultural   pur  poses  is   corroborated by the  recent  information  that a-carload of wheat  grown there has arrived "in Winnipeg,  and that the grain is of good' quality  and appearance.    As there is no railway   near   where   it  was  .grown,   it  must  have  ben  termed   many  miles  by the farmers themselves, perhaps to  afford the outside Avorld an object as  to the value of the district for farming purposes.  ,This end^the information will certainly served because it is  accepted as established that the near-'  er  to   its   northern     limit -wheat   is  grown the finer its quality.    There is  no   reason   to   doubt; that   the   reice  River district is a  "Manitoba Hard'T  and  "Number One Northern" region.  ���������Toronto Globe.

District Representatives  Placing Trained Agriculturists at the  Disposal of Farmers  In carrying out the policy of placing trained agriculturists at the disposal of farmers in the various districts of Manitoba, as announced  some time ago, the minister of agriculture has just appointed five menv  bers of the present graduating class  of Manitoba Agricultural College, to  be known as *'uistrict Representatives in Agricultrre." The names  and the centres from which they will  work are as follows: TI. F. Daniel-  son, Arb.org; Lester V. Lohr, Neepa-  wa; Nelson Smith. Killarney; W. .T.  Stone, Dauphin; William T. G. Wiener, Morris. These young men, who  were nominated by President Black  of the college, are well known .for  their practical knowledge of agricul-  tpre. They have been brought up on  farm's in Western Canada, have each  spent five years in technical training,  and will receive the Bachelor's De-  gres in Agriculturo at the next Agricultural College'Convocation.  In carrying out. their work they  will be directed by the Agricultural  College through its extension division, and will be related in this way  directly to the department of agriculture. Tliey will not be known as  advisers fti tho ordinary meaning of  that term, nor ns agents, nor exports.

"War  will bring a big change in this country also," said this high authority,  "and our upper classes are beginning  to realize that it will have to come.  Our men fighting in the ranks are getting, with their pay and separation allowance, au average of 27 shillings 5  pence a week.  "Many of these men before they en- j  listed were agricultural laborers earning 14 shillings and 6 pence a week.  'Cheir families are getting more now  to live on wtih husbands and fathers  away at the front than they had when  the husbands and fathers were home.  Do you think these men. arc going to  be satisfied to come back to 14 shillings and 6 pence a week for the whole  family?    No,   there  will have  to  be  some  readjustment  there.    And  our  upper classes  will  have  to  readjust  themselves.    They  will have to tone  down their scale of living.    There i3  too  much   extravagance     now.     You  Americans are partly responsible for  that.   With your big company and big  fortunes   you ^pend   freely,  and  you  have come ovel* here and taught us to  do the same thing. But there will have  to be a change in that.   We shall toave  to return to a simpler way of living."  _rkmyf   I ^*_3\J! 1 *J������  s%J  ComStarch  In the famous  &  4-fc 11 /���������_-_--.

The urgent need of all who suffer  from indigestion    i������ to gain strength  so that tha stomach can extract nourishment   from   the food taken.   Pain  after eating is the way the stomach  signifies its protest that it is too weak -j  to do nature's work.    To take purgatives   is only to aggravate the trouble.  Dr.    Williams'    Pink    Pills give new  strength to weak stomachs    because  they enrich and purify the blood supply thus enabling the stomach to digest   food naturally.   Almost from the  first the appetite revives;    then food  can    be taken without pain and the  burden of indigestion disappears. The  i folio v?ing vC&.se." proves A   the truth    of i  these, statements.   Mr. W. H. Silver, a  welV known farmer living in the vicinity of Hemford, 1M.S., says:    "For  upwards of seven years I was tortured  with indigestion:  sometimes I was so  bad that I -would not taste a bit of  hearty food, hat would have to content  myself with a hit of stale bread.    At  times -..-suffered-excruciating pains in  my   stomach, and . ould hardly sleep  at night.   I tried various prescriptions  but got no- benefit from them and naturally I was in a very reduced state  of health.   I had come to believe that  I was doomed for the balance, of my  life    to tliis    most constant torture,  when I read of a case similar to my  own cured through the use of Dr. Williams' Pink PJUs.   This gave me new  courage and I decided to try them. To  make a long story short, the use    f  the Pills for a couple of months completely cured me.    This is some two  years ago, and I have had no return  of the trouble, and am able to eat as  hearty a meal as anyone."

Broadened t.o  A,|l Fighting With Allies  An important order-in-council has  been passed at Ottawa to provide for  cases where a homesteader, who is a  member of the Canadian expeditionary forces or the British or Allied  forces, loses his life on active service.  The minister ot the interior is no*������  given the power to give tree patent  to the estate at once.      ^  The act, as it stands, only gives free  patent at once if a Canadian volunteer  is disabled by wounds, but- in the  opinion of Hon. Dr. Roche, if a man  is killed on active service in defence  of the empire his estate should be relieved of any further duties.

Theact only allows this at present to  which was very poor and carried but  a small number of stock was all the  use that could be made of this extensive   and  increasing-  sand   -_rea.    In  the year 1788 steps were taken hy the  French government to ascertain what  could be done to improve conditions  here,    and a policy of forest planting  was decided on with the result that  these sand wastes have been almost  entirely   planted   up   with     Maritime  pine which produces a very valuable  harvest of resin during the life of the  tree   while   the   wood   afterwards   is  used for paving blocks in Paris, for  props for coal mines in Elngiand ami  Wales, and for other purposes. In fact  one part of the shortage of mine props  in Great Britain at the present time is  clue to the fact that the supply could  not be obtained from north-em France  on  account of the scarcity of labor  owing to the men having been called  out to join the army. It will be remembered     that there was  a deputation  from the British government in Canada recently looking into the question  of the possibility of obtaining a supply  of pit props in Canada to cover the  shortage    from the Baltic as well as >  from France.

Your Canyon City correspondent refers to tho unpopularity of the individual and more so , since tho war  broke out. Now, I am lunorigftt tho  oldest residents in this settlement, and  I challenge your correspondent to produce llvo people out of the eighty they  refer to who hold Mr. Petroshuk and  his fraulein (as his wife is referred to)  in anything but the highest ostoom.  As for him contaminating tho water  anyone who takes tho trouble to visit  the stream which runs through his  ranch will readily conclude that* he  has more the people's interest at hoard  who use the water lower down than  we English-speaking people as a  whole.

Unnecessary interference is unwise, it is much better  to let nature take its course until it is  evident that help is really needed. The  .birth of a iamb is always easy when  stromr.

On the  other hand,   if the lamb comes in the  fall or   early spring,   nutritious  food  should be fed before and after lambing.-  As lambing  time  approaches  a ewe  weighiug 130pounds will require about  one   pound of  grain   daily,   together  with   succulent food and dry   fodder  such   as cloyer  or alfalfa.   Succulent  food  should be fed  at all   times  but  care should be taken not to feed it in  too great  an abundance as  it will result in a large weak lamb. After lambing, unlimited quantities may be fid  iii order that the flow, of milk may be  stimulated. Care should be taken however not to scour the ewe or offspring.  As a flock  begins to show  signs, of  lambing.it is desirable to seperate the  ewes heaviest  in lamb into a seperate  flock.   After lambing it is wise to put  the ewes  with one  lamb in  pens  by  themselves  also    those  with  twins.  Later the* lambs which are to be kept  for breeders should be seperated f rom  tho ones which are to be sold, and fed  the foods which will produce  growth  rather than fat.  When the first indications of lambing are noticed, the ewe should.be  placed in a peu whoro she can be  watched. It la not desirable to confine  her for a long time where she cannot  get sufficient exorcise. A cold rain is  more dotimental to a now-born lamb  than zero woathor and a dry atjjios-  phoro.

If the barn is jjwud and fc!Jttre i_  plenty of tli������ right feed it is best to  have the lambs come in March because  they can be given sufficient attention  and be ready to go ahead when turned  on grass.

Make Hohenzollern's Pay  "I will venture," says Sir H. II  Johnston in the Nineteenth Century,  "to suggest that since Germany has  in the main bosn led into this war  hy the Hohens'.ollerii dynasty (backed  by one or two other princely houses)  the private property and domains of  those ruling families should 1)0 seized  by the German state and applied to  the settlement of the indemnity,  which they would just about suffice  to meet.  "When Germany awakens from  her dream, from the hypnotic trance  into which she has been thrown,  and sees things in their proper light,  il is on the llohenzollerns that, her  hate should justly turn ami not on t  KnglaiKl."  Proper Feed to Maintain Horses in  Good Working Condition  After many tests made at the experimental farm, Ottawa, hay, bran  and oats have been found the best  feeds for work horses. The hay is  fed long and the oats and bran in the  proportion of five parts oats to two  parts bran, mixed and fed dry. Warm  bran mashes Afive to .six pounds per  horse, are used on Saturday nights to  replace the regular bran ration.  When horses are or. very heavy work,  the proportion of bran is decreased to  one part for five parts oats.  A sate standard for feeding draught  horses, and one commonly used,  is that of giving from one to one  and quarter pounds of the above  grain mixture and one pound of ���������hay  for each 100 pounds live weight; this,  of course, subject to variation depending- on the severity of work, condition of animal when fed, the health  of animal, and oth_r minor considerations.  The morning feed, about 5 a.m.,  consists of about three-eighths of the  total grain mixture and one-quarter  of the grain and about one-half the  hay for the day.  AVater is supplied after the morning feed and befor > the noon and  evening- feeds. During the winter,  water is also supplied in the evenings, some three hours after the feed.  With the above treatment," tha  horses are maintained in good working condition, and with an almost  entire absence of common stomach  and intestinal ailments such as indigestion and colic No condiments  are used, but to horses somewhat low  in iieaii and requiring more feed, molasses mixed with the grain is used  in small quantities as it stimulates  the appetite by increasing the palp-  tihillty of the* food.  Colicky children can be promptly  cured by Baby's Own Tablets because  these Tablets act directly on the stomach and bowels and cleanse them of  all impurities, concerning them Mrs.  James C. Slater, Summerville, N.S^,  writes: *'I have used Baby's Gvvu  Tablets  and  am glad to say  I  have  Has no Drug Monopoly  British   Chamber of Commerce Jour  nal Corrects a Popular Mis-  .        contteption A'*  As there seems considerable popular misconception on the subject, it  is worth while to point-out that it is  not the caae that Germany -bas of recent years had a practical monopoly  in the manufacture of drugs, declares .  the British chamber of commerce  Journal. In synthetic drugs Germany,  it is true, bad before the war established an ascendancy, but the manufacture of drugs direct from plants  has always been- a British industry  and for drugs of this kind Germany  has in some cases had to come to this  country for supplies. Tliere has, however, been a notable exception in the  case of the well known alkaloids, atropine and hyoscyamine.  The Imperial Institute has now  brought the matter again before home  drug manufacturer's. The matter is  of special importance, because present requirements for atropine; particu-  J larly those of the army, have depleted  the market, the price has increased  four fold, and there is, therefore, a.  very good opportunity for British  firms to take up tho manufacture of  this drug. At the moment, owing to  Germany having at the beginning of  the war effected heavy purchases of  hyoscyamus, there is a difficulty ia  obtaining large supplies from Egypt.  Tli_, Jni .erisl Institute has _iowsvsr  | taken all possible steps to encourage  found them an excellent medicine for] further production, and an ample supply  colic arid loss.of sleep."

Prohibition Causes Increased Savings  A report from Petiograd says that  M. Kharitonoff, comptroller of ti*e  Russian treasury, speaking before the  Duma budget committee, declared that  owing to the great increase in national" savings, due to prohibition, the extraordinary outlay occasioned by the  war as yet had caused no great suffer*  ing in Russia.  As proof of this M. Kharitonoff said  the national savings in December,  1913, which aroounte.1 to 700,000  roubles ($350,000). had increased to  _9,100.000 roubles (ip.4,550,000) in December, 1914. He added that the total  savings for lflia amounted to 24,000,-  000 roubles ($17,000,000), as compared  with S4.000.000 roubles ($42,000,000)  for 1914.  Minard's Liniment Co., Limited.

For  the success of the work Amuck credit  is due to Mr. C B. Whittaker, a former newspaperman, who, on account of  a slight astigmatism, was rejected by  a recruiting officer, and so, determined to help in some way, he found himself chief of the operating force of  the Belgian relief committee.

"Mr." Whittaker remarks that one of the greatest  difficulties in outfitting the third class  waa that the English: shoes were not  large enough. AUsed to wearing sabots  all their lives the feet oi hundreds of  these refugees; could hardly be compressed into the largest English shoes.  Another difficulty was    that as th������  railways were all undej,military control,    the committee rarely had more  than forty minutes' notice of the arrival of a new host of refugees. Thea  th..-motor busses would have to dash  at great speed to the railroad station  to meet the immigrants.   They would  be  conveyocV jmme_iately  to   one   of  several large  buildings,    where they  , could Abe fed, bathed and-supplied with  I food.

S*wine  increased  by  upwards of  56O;GO0.    In British Columbia the numerical changes were: comparatively     light..    Naturally,  A-much-  space  is given to reports of experiments at the different farms and stations. - These experiments, it is hardly  necessary to: say, cover every variety  of grain, fruit and vegetable production, as well as soil development, crop  management,   cultivation    of    forage  plants and grasses, live stock breeding   and   dairying.     It   would   be   impossible  to  overestimate  the  importance   of   the   information   thus   furnished.  Of course, at this time, when the  value of increase by improvement of  production is being strenuously urged,  the reports are of special interest.  It is not alone with what may be  termed activities of the farm proper  that they deal, but also with "building, with clearing, with road-making,  with ornamental gardening. In short,  the reports constitute virtually an encyclopedia of farming and A its  branches brought up todate.  While, as has been said, volume one  is devoted to the review by the  director and reports of the divisions  of chemistry, field husbandry and animalhusbandly, volume two presents  After analyzing carefully the elements, good and bad, making up the.  Canadian situation,'-who can fail to be  a conservative optimist? First, the  inevitable must be faced. Half our  troubles are caused by kicking against  what is. The inevitable includes the  fact:that the British empire is ...at;  war and that sacrifices must be made.  It includes the fact that Canada was  due for an economic reconsideration,  whether or not the war had come, it  includes recognition of the fact that  speculative jam. is not the bread and  butter of business. Having recognized  these things, we are able to; do business on .* a new plane- Exaggerated  ideas of land values and rentals are  disappearing; so are the abuses: of  credit. A better idea is being obtained of what constitutes a proper basis  of credit. In short, we are getting  down to real business.���������  War, naturaiiy enough, effects trade,  commerce, investment and business  in many directions. The news from  the front last-week,, for instance, gave  a distinct cheek to increasing confidence and business at home. Yet we  all know there can be-only one result  to the present struggle. None woif I  exchange his lot with that of a citizea  of an enemy country. And the confidence, we have in the empire'e fight  and in the nation's future, should ba  spoken.   It should unite with the con-,  fidence   of  others.    Pacts  cannot ba  changed  by  pessimism.    Good  sentiment plays an important part in the  maintenance of credit, of business and  of faithAin a young country's natural  resources, its prospects and its manhood-  Money   if.     accumulating     rapidly.  There is a demand for   good   bonds,  and a growing calif for   stocks.   Th������  chartered banks, the safe.ty valve of  Canada, are in an excellent position.  They will extend credit where Ait is deserved.    The    agricultural    prospects  are excellent.    The outlook for immigration is good.    The labor situation  is not bad.;  Canada has had little dif-  iicutiy in financing   its requirements.  The change  from the British to the  United States money market was effected     without    trouble.     Mortgage  payments, both principal and interest,  are good.   Economy   is not being carried to a foolish extreme-    Manufacturer,  are encouraging the home demand for their, goods, at the same time  seeking to increase their export "trade.  New  trade  channel-    are being  cut.  Experienced farmers from the   "United  States have already commenced again  to take up lands in Western Canada.  And there are numerous other factors  of strength in the Canadian situation.

In this connection it is liileresting  to note that fattening young stock is  becoming very popular in the United  States'1 Avhere the market for besf is  increasing so rapidly that more study  has been paid to methods of increasing .--pi'OuuCticn..  In the early days cattle were kept  on the ranges from three to five years.  Experience, however, has shown that  the use of thoroughbred bulls and the  consequent improvement in the quality  and  maturing  ability   of market  cattle,  together  with  heavier    grain  feeding, has made  it poasiple to put  just as much beef on. the market at  from 13 to 20 months old. Experts are  of the opinion that with the continued  Improvement of breed stock it will be  possible  to  market  at an  even  earlier  date.    Among the advantages of  earlier finishing of cattle-, the following  are  mentioned  by  some  of the  leading cattle  men:   Firstly, younger  cattle make heavier gains of beef on a  similar amount of feed than old cattle;  secondly, the money Invested is  turned   faster,   being  turned  over  in  eighteen,  months,  where  formerly  It  took from throe to five yearn; thirdly,  heifers  under  two  years  old  sell  ata  readily   as   steers,   and   ilnish   more  rapidly.  Aa the-census prove without shadow of doubt, the valuo ot beof cattle in  Canada Is steadily Increasing. In  1001. ther������j were U,107,744 valued at  $5*1,107,:ut or nn average* of $17.12,  taking tho good with the bad. In 3911  thero were ?,,0S9,257 valued at $8B,-  278,4.0, or an average of $21.90, an in-  erciiHO of $4.78 per head. Mr. II. S.  Arkell, assistant live Block commissioner for tho Dominion government,  say. that never In our statistical Vu  tory havo pricep attained so hlgn a  flguce either for cattle on the hoof or  for meat in the butcher shop aa today.
