Afterward  a eommltte  In his general remarks Mr. Green  In the London Times, of April 23rd,  we notice the following.among Gthers.  in the roll of honor of officers killed at  the front:  "Lieut. Bruce F. S. Douglas of the  South Stafford Regiment, eldest  son of Lo;rd Sholto Douglas, and  nephew ox tuts -icn-quis of i_tueen_-  berry. Killed in France on April  JL5th. aged 18 years. He joined the  Special Reserve April 14, 1814, and  was given a commission in the  South Stafford Regiment being  promoted to lieutenant on February 4th last.  Bruce spent his   childhood   days   at  Creston, when his parents lived here  Lieut. Crompton has been heard  from in Belgium. Writing of his hurried departure from England and the  subsequent, events he says:  "I was gi ving a -squad of sergeant-  majors instructions in musketry when  a hurried and prespiring sergeant arrived and said that No. 2 Company  would leave at 6 o'clock, it being then  4 p.m., so I rushed them m and got  my kit together, and here we are.  April 29. Just as I had got so- far*  we got an order to fall in and go to  man trenches. So we did so. While  we were falling in a heavy bombardment started and continued half an  hour just at dusk. 7 p.m.���������We are  now in reserve trenches along bank of  Yser Canal, and see Ypres, which is  about two miles southeast of us. All  night shells fell at intervals just behind ns as the Germans were bombarding the road in rear and a battery  just behind it. They wounded ten and  killed three of the R.F. A. Yesterday  one of my men got a scalp wound from  a shrapnel bullet;. Ail the men were  just in tear of the farm buildings  where the Sixteenth Headquarters are  when a shell hit the roof; they scattered very quickly.  An intermittent sort of sheliin������* is  going on all the while now, like an exaggerated sort of stumping during a.  thunderstorm, but they are not shelling us, but the F.A. Battery just in  rear. Yesterday I managed to wash  and also got something to eat; I hadn't  previously had anything solid since  Monday lunch.

He had no idea when the general election would be held, but he  was sure when the returns were all  in the Borden Government would  be found re-elected by a handsome  majority.      "  Mr. Mackay had many nice  things to say of the Valley and the  people here resident. He covered  tbe provincial situation briefly. The  date of the McBride Groyernwient's.  appeal to the people was unknown  to him, though he was quite sure of  the triumphant return of that  party. He had not yet decided  whether he would allow his name to  go before the Knslo constituency  Conservative nominating convention, but would make a definite  announcement in this regard vory  shortly.  On Saturday Mr. Green and Mr.  Maokay motored to Canyon City,  where a meeting was held in tho  Bolioolhoueo at 11 a.m., at -which  both gentlemen spoke -briefly. At  tho clone Mr. Mackay was waited  upon by a delegation who reported  that tho Education Department  was vory dilatory in Rending along  funds to make some badly-needed  improvements to tho sohool grounds  tho'expenditure for which had boon  roguiufiy uulluiri/i-d.

Some of the men took hold of Siddle
but he resisted. They exerted greater
force; he still resisted,''screaming incoherent things. At last, by a great-
-er effort than they had expected from
so.bold a, man-, he broke away from
���'Youmust uot hurt her!" he shouted wildly, "i ^ever'meant-her,, my
own boy's child, my Eira- : Just listen:
these two men are not negroes, they
are white men���they are Englishmen."
*'Tfa.at is a pretty thin yarn at. the
best of times," said Keene coldly;
���"and I guess we-are-, about' tired' of
heating it this trip���It's only a douse
to'gain time.   Take him away."
But Noah drew 5. pistol from his
pocket and threatened those who approached bin.- so that, taken hy surprise, they dn?*sv hack.
"God have mercy!"" Siddle;
ed, "I planned all this���for
planned it against that man

Every one. listen to tue! You are all
my puppets; I planned all this; I arranged every single thing you have
done today; these two men are white
men and are innocent: my girl is innocent; Mrs. Bryan has never been
murdered at all.    Do you hear?"
"Mrs. Bryan not murdered at ail?"
repeated the Baptist deacon. '���Why. I
helped to get th... body out of the
flames myself!"
"We are his puppets, are we?'' said
Jabez Hunt laughing. "That is a good-
sized claim, ain't it, boys?"
"He is either plum-crazy or takes
ns for fools," said Editor Keene draw
ing, ,Mr. Thomas Waters left Petersville in a borrowed rig for a. small
farm in the neighborhood of which lie
was-part owner; The farm was run by
an old man named Hagen, whom Waters had once found on the verge of
starvation, :an,d torwhom, he being
then in funds, he "r ad purchased this
farm and had installed him on it to
\ work it on a.profit sharing agreement.
I It had i>ot done very well, and had
j lately been mortgaged, but having no
5 other refuge at the 'moment Mr. Wat-'
; ers was now upon his way thither for
-; a brief period of rest and to assist in
I the harvest operations.
Most, of the money the crop would
bring the mortgage company would
take, but Waters calculated that.-.with:
good luck there ought to be enough
coming to him '"or his share to pay
his fare to New York.
'"There might even he enough to
leave with live or ten dollars over
when T strike New York ���'"City," he
mused, .*'ahd then i should be able to
begin operating on Wall street right
away. If not, 1 .shall have to take 11 j
turn at shovelling snowAtirst, while if
the crop turns out had 1 shall just
have to heat my way east."
He drove on quickly enough, shak-
; ing his head to one or two-invitations
i to join in the lynching party, address-
, ed him hy people, he passed.
I ���" It ain't a thing I take any stock
[in," he explained, ""and I don't take
) any in your Editor Keene, either."
j So he drove quietly on his way;
j but for all that he wore his usual
I grave and serious air, he was "much
1 less composed than usual. Not that
i he was thinking of the lynphing���a
j matter that hardly crossed his mind
j again���but lie kept looking hack over
; his shoulder till finally he lost even
! the tall elevators that were visible
j long after the other buildings of Petersville had sunk out of sight- He
j drew up and sat for a time thinking,
j and at last a soft sigh escaped his
i lips'.
S "That was a real plum dandy, that
girl," he mused. *'T never met one like
her, and the way she hove that coffee
pot at me was simply great! A girl in
ten thousand, that."
Ke sighed  again,    and  once more
continued liis  _ourse till he came to
a spot where the trail he was follow-
in two, one portion leading
ing a pistol from his pocket,

sunk seven wells before we struck

"It is not my ..name," explained Lord
Ambrose;  "it is my tide."
"Your ;how 'much'?" Waters asked.
"Say that last part again,   will you?"
"it is my title," ���v��?p.catfcd Lord Ambrose. "I am the son of the Marquis
of Oasileham, an English peer."
"Gosh, you don't say," said v.aters,
handing hia lordship his share of the
pork and beans; "nnd what have you
been doing to land out here instead of
lounging on the gilded benches of the
House of Lords? But perhaps you
would rather not-stay?"
"Not at all," returned his lordship.
"I came here on business to see Mr.
Siddle-���Mr. Noah Siddle, who resides
near here."
"Ah, he is busy receiving a deputation this morning," said Waters. "Say,
though, there was another Britisher at
Petersville seemed interested in Mr.
Siddle, a party of the name of Hetherington."
''Yes, I know hini," returned Lord
Ambrose, gloomily-
"Dp you know- his daughter?" asked
Waters eagerly.        -
"Certainly," returned Lord Ambrose.
"A charming lady," said Waters.
"I>elightful," said Lord Ambrose enthusiastically.
"Sir," said Waters, shaking him
warmly by the hand, ''any friend of
that young lady's a friend of
mine. Only"���a new idea, seemed to
strike him shid his face dropped���
"sav," he inquired, "does she hanker'
after British lords any?"
"I am afraid," said Lord Ambrose,
puzzled, "I don't quite understand���"
���'���J mean," said Mr. Waters, "is there
anything of a tender nature between
you and her? Por T don't mind admitting she is a lady 1 take great interest in."
"1  have  proposed  several    times,"
said Lord Ambrose with a deep sigh.
"And she has-never accented you?"
asked Waters. " j
"Never once," confessed Lord Am- j
brose. 1
'���Have some more pork and beans," j
Waters urged him Eagerly. "If you!
ain't full, just say so, and I'll fry some !
more. Sir, if there is any single thing j
i can do for you, nhme it, and it is;

There is more catarrh in this section
of the country than all ftthcr diseases
put together, and Until the last te-w
years was uupposert to be incurable.
For a great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease ana prescribed
local remedies, and by constantly falling
to cure with local treatment,- pronounced It incurable. Science has
proven Catarrh to be a constitutional
disease, and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarih Cure,
manufactured by F. J. Cheney <fe Co.,
rPol6do, Ohio. Is the only Constitutional
cure on Ihe market. It is taken Internally Jn doses from 10 drops to a toa-

ing. having made ..p his mind on a
certain point, he had t&ken immediate action. Now, for the first time in
his life almost, he was undecided,
wavering, and inclined to regret that
he had a-cted so quickly.
"For there was no real need -to clear
out so soon," he mused. "I might easy
have stayed around awhile and maybe
had another chat with her. The plajn
truth is I was scared���scared, sir, I
was���scared as bad as could be."
He had not meant to dine till he
reached the farm, hut now lie alighted from his buggy, and unhitched his
horse and let it graze. There was a
bluff near, and from it he collected
some dry wood and made a fire-    In
his  buggy he  had  the    outfit    with
which he had been prospecting, and
soon he  had  sonic pork and  beans
frizzling in his frying pan, and send-,
ing  out  a  pleasant odour   over  the
prairie���an odour so pleasant it seemed one man at least "could not resist
it. for Waters heard a faint sniff, and
looking round in surprise naw a face
peeping at. him from behind the trunk
of one of the poplars.
"Hello," said Waters.
The stranger sniffed again.
"Oh, I beg your pardon," he said.
"Don't mention it," said Waiers.
The stranger came ���" rther out into
the open and snilt'et. once more.   Ho
was      very   dirty,   vory   untidy,   his
clothes were much torn and disarrayed, and one eye was d I fl colored as if
he had received a recent blow on It.
"Oh, I'm really so awfully sorry,"
he said. "I'm sure I apologize for Intruding like this. Yon must think me
n frightful honnuer, and 1 really havo
no excuse to offer."
"1 don't know xvhat In blazes you
are talking about," said Waters, "hut
if you moan you want some grub,
como right along and chip in."
"Really, 'pon honour, thal'n so awfully good of you," snld tho stranger,
advancing with alacrity; for Jf Wat-
era' language was as strange to lilm
as hlu to Waters, there was no misunderstanding tho accompanying gesture.
Mr.  Waters  gave  tho contents  of

A dozen rifles cracked, and the  rider fell on the ground.. .  When the Belgians entered the  farmhouse they found seventeen dead  and a few -wounded.comrades.  From " the" wounded they learned  this sinister story: .      -  ���������Shortly after*the party entered the"  farm'house they lit the stove and sat  around it.  Shortly afterwards they heard footsteps above, and* a man with a green  honuet pulled over his eyes and wearing a, grey eloak ��������� slowly descerided  the ladder from the loft.

In a recent interview Dr. S. IT.  Tolmie, western representatiue of  the Dominion Live Stock Commissioner, stated that the demand on  his department for purebred bulls,  which are placed in sparsely settled  sections, is much heavier than heretofore, but in spite of the heavier  call for animals Mr. Tolmie has  been able to secure all the necessary  males right in the province. With  the exception of Shorthorns and  Polled Angus it has not been necessary to import a single animal.  In another direction comes word  all records made by Canadian cows  of  any breed  or any age for  the  annual   production   of   butter fat  have been broken by a three-year-  old Holstein cow bred and owned  by J. M. Steves of Steveston, B.C.  Her yield amounted to no less than  938.93 pounds of fat, with  24,149.3  pounds of milk.  And speaking of beef cattle it  will be interesting to learn that  beef on the hoof at Calgary at the  present time is 8$ cents per pound,  an unheard-of price, and packers  are said to be of the opinion that it  will go higher.

Also another  man, a landowner in panyon City, a  member of the local home guards, employed this spring a German to do his  ranching. Are these gentlemen Britishers? or selfish men who at this  time are not true Britishers.  The authorities should see that these  men be made employ our own people,  and not wait until neighbors get hostile feeling toward them, who are  liable to make a change by force.  I happened to be a resident of the  United States during the Spanish-  American War. The people of my  part did not wait for the police to prevent Spaniards from getting a job  while good Yankees went idle and  hungry. They organized a small mob,  met these tyrants at their homes and  kindly advised them what was best to*  do in order to keep the peace among  | his neighbors and friends.  ���������Ithas been said that Canadians are  easy and not true to their noble inheritance.

Tent Caterpillars  Malaeasoma erosa Stretch.  -   Malacasoma pluvialis Dyer.  Malacasoma constricta Stretch.  There are many species of tent caterpillars bitb only three that are of  trouble to the fruit grower In British  Columbia; of these the erosa feeds on  all fruit trees with the possible exception of the pear, pluvialis has about  the same food plants as' the first, but  usually is not so common. The constricta is very common on the oak and  occasionally migrates to the prune.  Description:���������The caterpillars build  characteristic nests of silken threads  in  which they- usually remain   when  not feeding."  In the latter part of the  summer egg  masses are deposited on  small twigs or shoots.   These egg masses are fastened together by a cement  like  substance that is  impervious .to'  water and which serves as a food for  the young larvae when first hatched.  .The larvae  are hatched  early in   the  spring.   At  first  they are  not very  noticable but soon become conspicuous  on account  of the   tents  which they  build   toward the middle of the summer the  larvae  become full  grown;  they then   seek crevices   where   they  spin silken cocoons and change to pupae. After remaining in this stage for  a short  time they  change  to moths,  come forth and deposit their eggs.  Control:���������Destroy the egg masses  and later any tents that may be built.  Spray with arsenate of lead 2 lbs. to  40 gallons of water as soon as the caterpillars are observed.  Rosy Apple Aphis  Description:���������The various forms  which this species assumes during the  season has given rise to four common  names, ie. The Rosy Apple Aphis.  TherBrown, Apple Aphis, The Black  Apple Aphis, and the Purple Apple  Aphis.  The pest usually only attack the  leaves surrounding a fruit cluster, excepting in years when the fruit crop  ig light when they may be found any?  *������������_���������*  where' on  the.leaves*   In a severe at  tack the leaves become curled and  mors or less functionless and the fruit  becomes gnarled and useless.  Controh-^Spray at the time the buds  are just opening with Lime-sulphur I  in 10 phis 1 part of Black I_eaf 40 to  each 1000 parts of the diluted Lime-  sulphur. Spray again just as the petals fall, using a combination Apple  Scab and Aphis spray, consisting of  lime-sulphur 1" in 4Q plus 1 part of  Black Leaf 40 to each 1000 parts of the  diluted lime-suiphur.  For other species of aphis on apple,  pear, plum or quince trees or on small  fruits, spray as for Bosy Apple Aphis.  For aphis on peach trees spray as soon  as the pes.t appear with Black Leaf 40  1 in 1000.  All the  ovens at  Fernie are now in  commission again.

The proposition  comes from Iceland. Because of the  war, the markets of Northern Europe  are closed to the fishermen of that  island, and they are forced to seek a  new outlet. Since the fishing operations off the Newfoundland coast wiii  be largely curtailed this season, as^  a result of the large number of Newfoundlanders who have joined the  British army and navy, the Icelanders'  think they will be able to dispose of  a large part of their product there. As  it is proposed to purchase foodstuffs  and other goods for return cargoes  to Iceland, the idea ,is looked upon  with favor in Newfoundland.

Few can do  this. The greater the pity, for, could  this gift be attained with any measure  of success, Agriculture would be lifted  from (to us a rather hackneyed  phrase) being more or less a game of  chance' This gift lacking, the necessity of crop diversification and mixed  'farming is being more frequently cued. In a one-crop country (a country  where one crop, wheat, for instance,  is more or less th_ principal one, as  in Canada) this class of farmiug is  more to be urged than elsewhere, but  the advantages to ihd individual farmer in any section are equally great.  Naturally, "exceptions to this, come  up, but as a rule, tie argument holds  true-and this is strongly emphasized  by the statistical result of a recent  investigation carried on in this country. The Census and Statistical Office of the Department of Trade and  Commerce, because there were indications that in the northwestern provinces the profits from grain growing,  ���������when not supplemented by stock raising, were less remunerative than formerly, undertook to ascertain the cost  per acre in 11*13, of producing the  more important crops, the value per  acre of the Tiroduce and the profit per  acre for each crop. The investigation  was supplemented by a similar one  -"arris" on in 3911-  According" to" the American Analist5  the correspondents of the departments for the most part agree that  mixed farming is more profitable than  growing grain alone. This is true not  only because the fertility of the land  is maintained hy the return to the  ground of farmyard manure, but because the practice of mixed farming  insures cleaner an. richer land, and  cleaner grain, permits the best rotation of crops, provides labor all the  year round, and creates a home market for cheap fodder. Also., through  encouraging "diversification, it tends.  to some extent, to insure stability of  profits.  In the latter, some surprising variations between the two years on- which  returns .are made were developed. Of  the six crops investigated���������fall wheat,  spring wheat, corn, oats, barley and  flax���������three show increased profits per  acre in 1913 over 1911, and three de-  ",v.   . unnfftlxf      -Via    '(r'.MT-C     WPVA  \Jk    t-1-.J-J-V* \.\~m J *.*--V Q*^.-.���������-W -���������    -^ -     ���������  more important grains. Both  spring and fall wheat yielded the  farmer more profit per acre, the former showing a gain of over 14 per cent.,  and corn made an even better record.  The gain in corn was wholly due to  a substantial reduction in the cost of  ���������produciher it.    Indeed, the value  per  _-"5       _        ,  cated Beforehand Belgian Towns  .' - to  be  Devastated  M. Pierre Notomb has written a  book' "Les Barbares en Belgique,"  "which is a kind of supplement or  "addenda" to the official documents  issued   by    the   Belgian   government.  BARRFO KArcnrcwttn Tft-fitiirc  * iv.pvi nj  ..1th all the other  in cost of produc-  Nothonib  gives the  acre of that crop was less in 1913  than in 1911, and the reduction in  costs, amounting to $2.86 per acre,  was sufficient to offset this and still  show a far larger percentage on the  favorable side of the farmer's balance  sheet than any of the other crops.  This is the more surprising when it  is considered that  crops  the change  tion was practically nominal. The  greatest change in profit per acre was  in flax, which, notwithstanding a  small decline in production coat, fell  off from $7.33 to $1.18, a loss of near-  1-xr ok t������-������-.  /-���������Tit   t>.o. lnaa ._   _ai-_a ner  acre of this crop was ������6*5-, or 33 per  cent.  Some interesting figures are presented showing the division of production costs in 1913. The principal  item in all cases was the cost of preparing the ground, which included the  items of plowing, disking, packing and  harrowing. There are little variation  in preparation costs, except for corn,  whicli was in the . eighborhood of 40  per cent, more than the average for  the other crops. The cost of seeds naturally varied considerably, and was  the second item in importance up to  the' harvesting time. The <ost of  planting seeds ranged from 56 cents  for flax, to $1.27 for corn. The cost of  cultivation of -he latter was also far  greater than for any of .the others, being $2.95 per acre, as compared with  46 cents per acre for flax, and 72 cents  for fall wheat, which was the highest  after corn.* As a matter of fad, every  item in per acre cost of growing corn  is far greater than for the other crops  except for seed.  An interesting factor in the production cost sheet is that of rental value.  This figure was reached, where the  land was rented, by taking the average paid per acre; where it Was owned, the rental va3ue was ascertained  by a calculation of the value of the  land and the rate of interest on money  leaned, in the particular locality under consideration, on that kind of real  estate. The average value of the land  varies considerably in the different  sections of the Dominion, ranging  from $24 per acre in Alberta and Saskatchewan, to $167 _n British Columbia. In the latter province, however,  the high value of the land is due not  M.  he  ���������*-".������  "human  away in  Heav'en  documents  intensely  adheres   to  facts���������but  story of Belgium's  r������_r\-r-- _\  vqctoV/1  interest"    which  is  cold official reports,  knows    the   Belgian  are .full of tragic  dramatic.

While quoting copiously from  the   official  account,   and  without*^in  any   way   embellishing     the     simple  statements 'of  eye-wit_e3ses,   he   yet  succeeds In making a ^passionate appeal, less  for  pity  than  for justice,  for his crucified country.  ��������� "Belgium,     though     bruised     and  quivering,    is not dead.    Nor will She  ever  die,    since' in  the  eyes  of  the  whole   world   she  incarnates   a* principle   necessary   to   the   life     of   the  world.    She knows that her very sacrifice and  apparent    death"   are  the  most beautiful    proofs  of her living  reality.    She is possessed of a touching confidence that neither repeated  trials,  nor  an   oppression  every  day  becoming    more    odious,    nor  even  I time  itself can  shake.    And  so  she  waits-     Valiant     amidst . her   bloodstained fields,  silent,  she appeals by  her very silence and proud suffering  to   that' justice   for   which   she' hungers and thirsts."

Seasonable Hints For.Farmers to Aid  Them in Their Problems  A new publication, bearing the title  of "Seasonable Hints," has just been  issued by the Dominion Experimental  Farms, and it is proposed to continue  from month to month. The results of  many years' experience are here  found compressed into pithy paragraphs and in its dozen pages, the  first number manages to cram enough  advice to last a season, As its front  page reminds us:  "From the Atlantic to the Pacific  Oceans specially trained men are devoting their time to the study of your  problems, and will be pleased to discuss them with you. A communication  will not cost you anything, and may  result in suggestions of value."  A postcard will bring you month by  month a handsome reminder of things  needing to be done, the best tlmo for  purchases of seed, etc., and tells where  to get advice In case of difficulty.

The British troops consisted  of the sorely thinned battalions of  the Scots Guards, the South Wales  Borderers, and the Welsh and Queen's  Regiments, which held hastily constructed trenches across the front of  Gheluvelt village.  There had bee:, no time to perfect  these poor defences against the artillery and rifle fire of the nemy, but  every British soldier knew that tho  position had to be hell at all costr.  for once the line was broken there  was nothing to stop the Huns' inarch  on Calais.
