If they are to ac-  Local and Personal  Since his departure for overseas  service, about a year ago, we have  had a few timely letters from B.  Sinclair Sraith,~but by long odds  his most interesting contribution  appears below.  He deals with several phases of  the struggle in a fashion that all  our readers will appreciate, and  though at first blush the article  may look'a bit lengthy we can assure you every line makes tip top  reading.  The letter is dated Belgium, July  29th; at which time1 Mr. Smith and  several other Creston recruits lie  had just met were in the best of  health, and all send their regards  to numerous friends throughout the  Valley.    He writes:  It is a great while since I had the  pleasure of writing to you of experiences, but I notice from your paper  that the boys over here have kept you  fairly well posted and as experiences  ��������� are very much alike you have not  missed anything.  This da-** has been somewhat, of u,  Creston day, rendered so bv the meeting of *. Baston, Irvine Simmons,-1_.  Leamy, Jack Stace Smith and myself.  Really it was quite an event, and our  swapping of lies was most, enjoyable.  Boston is I^o. 1 of the machine gun  section, but the others are doing ordinary duties in their company."

Well, the boys are all very cheerfttt  and look lit. They belong to a splendid regiment and have, I know for a  certainty, displayed great courage on  several occasions; if they have any  complaint at all it is over the fact that  other Creston forces ore not with us.  Your Canyon City notes make amusing reading for those of us who have  seen things out here, and Mr.  commodate the property of a man going into hospital I would respectfully  urge that property be also provided to  put in them ; for the man admitted to  hospital usually goes in with perhaps  the clothes on his body, but nothing  more.   Of course this applies to wounded men. only, as "the other type of  patient, suffering from toothache and  tummy-ache or any other ache, usually goes to hospital with kit, paek and  full equipment, so'his pack sack obviates any necessity for property bags  for him.  Again, there is the usual lack of  method in the distribution of these  numerous society efforts. At one  place a regiment" will have three or  four pairs of sox per man, and another  regiment in the same place ywill be  hard put to scare up one pair between  several men. The same with tobacco.  Some outfit- will have so much that it  is wasted, and other outfits will starve.  for the want of it.

We left there at seven  in  the  evening, stuffed eight  in a  compartment.   We werentt allowed out at any  station.   We travelled  all night and  we ai'rived in London about, ten and  the first reception we got was at Exeter, where the Mayoress came around  with a parcel for each man, consisting  of two sandwiches, a piece of cake, an  orange, a box of woodiime cigarettes  and filled one water bottle with tea.  This was at one O'clock in the morning of the 30th and it was   the first  thing we .had to eat since we left at  noon the day before.  We arrived at Shorncliffe station at  two in the   morning  and   had   three  miles to walk to camp.   We got there  and then got orders to get cleaned up  for inspection before the commanding  officer.   Then they gave us breakfast  and all this time we had not had our  clothes off or a wink of sleep for over.  48 hours. My but we were tired.   After dinner we went down to Folkstone,  which is -about 3 miles away, and certainly was suprised at the slowness of  things and old fashioned way of doing  it.   The scenery is certainly lovely and  all that but I would hate like; the mischief to think that I would have to  live here. I got to bed at eight o'clock  last night and it was  the  first  time  that I had my boots of. In three days.  . We are living it tents  at present,  but will be.moving into barracks in a  few days.   There are ten of us, to each  small bell tent.   We have mattresses  to sieep on which is an improvement  to Vernon.

Well, Canyon City  and Mr. -���������'���������. are never likely to witness anythin������ worse than a tnunder-  storm, so their tranquil and unbiased  minds are quite capable  of judging  their Austrian to the extent of what  he will or will not do.    At the same  time we in the field must work hard to  prevent other Austrians from joining  their Canyon City friend, or ho might  t-iprlng some surprises on the hands  that fool them.  July,30:   From items seen in various newspapers it would appear that  several societies are averse to supplying Tommy with cigarettes and tobacco, and aa the funds to supply theso  luxuries are provided in part by tho  endeavors of theso same societies thoy  have every right to  say how their  money shall bo spent.    At the same  time it might   be  pointed  out that  whun one makes a present it is customary to make tho Rift most acceptable to the recipient and from obser*  ration,  exporhmce? nnd exchange  of  views wkth many mon, tobacco in Home  form or another iR tho most acceptable  gift of all.

Writing from "Iii the trenches,  Belgium," on July 30th, he says,  among other things:  I guess my friends in Creston were  rather worried about me, owing to tlio  uncertain news. T hear that -one  party eveu wrote home and said I hod  "cashed in." Ah a matter of fact I  was very slightly wounded, indeed.  It happened at Ypres.     We made a  charge with the 10th Battalion (Alber-  ta boys).oii a certain   wood  near St.  Julien.   -We had a very hot. time  in  the charge but I came through that  alright, but when I got through to. the  other  side  of  the wood I   got  two-  smacks on the head.      One vory. small  spliutes of a shell or grenade took-mc  on the forehead, while (something else  that felt like a brick hit me on top of  the head.   I was not stunned,, but was  knocked silly for about ten diiys.   I  was only in the hospital about a week  and then I .was Rent to a convalescent  camp for a month.     Altogether I was  away from the battalion for about six  weeks, but I did not get ovor to England.   .I was kept in Franco.  A couple of days ago I went ovor  and visited Bob Smith. Ho seems  very fit and quite pleased with tho  life.  Little old Creston on the Hats would  look like heaven to mo now as I.sit on  a box of ammunition and wish   that  tho bally war was ended.

Yesterday ho  did that aftor several  attempts; gave  us a big " coal box " to divide amongst  us.   It eont six men to the hoapital,  but fortunately no one was killed.  Of course bullets, too, are trouble*  oome, but if a. chap doesn't put his  head over the paradet he should he all  right.

'The latest crop report issued by R,  M. Winslow, provincial horticulturist,  is decidely encouraging from the standpoint of the fruit grower.   There are  few com plaints of recent scab development on account of  excessive rains;  heavy winds have been conspicuously  absent and injury from hail is reported from only two small sections.  - Due to a heavy  "Drop", which con*.*  tinued well  into August,   the apple  prospects are not as good tis reported  previously.    It is doubtful if the total  production   in   British Columbia will  reach 600,000 boxes ( in 3314 our total  production was 680,800 boxes ).

In the Northwestern States the  "drop" was heavy and much loss is reported   through scab and hail.    Th.  percentage of N������. 1. fruit is estimated  as low as 12 and 50% of the total  pro-  d.-ction, which in turn i. #������st. mated to  be but E4.  to 50% of ������   norma!   crop.  Similar conditions are reported in'the  Eastern States.  The  average potato   yieid   fur  Province is estimated at. six tons.

Nor  did their troubles end there for-between���������but here's tho letter: ^"~*~-v  It seems a long  time  since I have  written, but wo just  got into  camp  yesterday morning at 3 o'clock, I am  going to start in where I left at Montreal.   Wo left Montreal at three in  tho morning and arrived in Quebec at  five o'clock tho   next evening, I saw  tho Quebec bridge, which collapsed a  few years ago, also Wolfe's cove; that  was on tho 22nd.   On tho  morning of'  the 2-rd wo pussed Father Point and  saw whore tho Empress of Iroland was  bunk.

"We will share aud. share alike in  everything," answered Glibby. "Am  1 right, mates?"  "Right you are!" came from the  deep voices of the men.  How I longed to clutch him by his  throat and choke him!* My temper  rose again, but this time, as before,  I managed to keep it down, but with  immense difficulty, as you may suspect.  "Ct-ne Into the cabin. Mister Hampdon/'  said GUbby. "and we will  talkj  it over-"-  **Wait," said I. "Who is in com-  inand of you?"'  **Why. Mister Pimball, the bo's'n,"  answered Glibby.

"All  right."    answered    the    boatswain's mate, turning to the coaipan- i  ionway.    "Pimbell can talk;  him and  you can come    to    terms, 1  make no  doubt."  Now 1 couldn't allc.- ___ysei_ xo hesitate for the thousandth part of a  second. Ostentatiously I shoved one  pistol into the belt that hung at my  righjt side, the other 1 dropped care-  coat, and.  ladder,  I   j    s���������.x~.    *t .������u:������  anu    xxxxkj    111.     .al/iii,  the   men   giving     back     respectfully  enough to leave me gangway.  "Now, what is it that you propose.  Master Bo's'n?" I began, sitting down  at the cabin table, while the rest  ranged themselves about it, some  standing, some sitting on the transoms at the sides, as Pimball came  thundering into the cabin-  "We know," began Pimball insolently, without further preliminaries,  "that, this ship's cruisin' for treasure.  We know all we'll get out of the  cruise is what we signed for an' no-  thin' else. We've made a good guess  that the treasure is hereabouts, and  we mean to have more than our  wages. We're goin' to have our  share of whatever's found that we're  after."  "So you shall,*' I said, "I am with  you in that. I want something rnore  than my wages too."  "What's this woman anyway?"  broke out another. "Why should she  get it all?    She's a mere girl-"  ' "You have said right, mate; who  and why indeed?" I answered smoothly, marking him down for my vengeance when my turn came. "Now,  what are your plans?"  '"We want that there map or chart  that  you  have  been  seen  read in'  in  your cabin," said Pimball.  * It  was  in a little  bag around  my  iiuL'k.   I reached down, pulled out the  "And how came this girl by news  of it?"  How much of the story they understood 1 could not tell. Probably but  little, yet the idea of the treasure w,a.  real enough undoubtedly.  "And vou think there is treasure  there?"  asked  Pimball-  Now, of late I had changed ray  mind, why, _. know not, but 1 had, yet  it would not do io tell them thai-  *'I am sure of it." I cried, "gold, silver, jewels, God knows what. Every,  thing  to  make  us  rich   forever."  "And what do you reckon the value  of it all to be?"  'Oh, several millions of pounds," 1  answered iightiy as if the treasure  was so great that a million more or  less was of no moment.  "Hurrah!" cried out one old seaman, and the cabin on the instant was  filled with wild cries, bestial, brutal  shouts.  As the sound partially died away I  heard the door back of'me open. Now,  I had purposely so placed myself as  to   be   between   the   crowd   and   the  door.     The   door   was   opened  but   a  li! tie way.    1 was conscious that she  was awake and at least was listening.  "You are the only navigator among  us, Mister Hampdon," began Pimball,  after the  men  got  measurably  quiet  again,    "and if you are with, us, you  j will take the ship there to that island.  j We'll   get   the   treasure   aboard,   sail  away      and   sink   her.on   the   South  American coast and then every man  for himself with all he can carry."  "Am 1 to be the captain?" 1 asked.  "There'll be no captain. Every man  for  himself,  I   say,   but  me  and  the  ; bo's'n's mate^ Glibby.    will    take the  j watches  in  turn.  You'll navigate  the  ! ship   and   whatever  is   necessary  for  ; our safety we'll do at your order. Is it  understood?"  "Yes," said I, "under one condition." *  "We make no conditions," said Pimball darkly, "we are masters of the  ship, remember, and this is .our last  word."  "It is not mine," said I composedly,  for I had yet the hardest part of the  bag, took the torn parchment from it  and threw it on the table. There was  not the leaBt use. in my pretending ignorance or in refusing to give it up.  They would kill me and take it anyway.  "There,"   said   I  coolly,   "you  have  It."  Pimball picked St up.

Uniformly accurate fire in all engagements with the ships or the enemy has, Engineering continues, been  the outstanding feature of tho naval  warfare-., whether regard be had to  jsueli combined actions as took place  in the Bight of Heligoland, off the  Falkland Islands, and later on the  Dogger bank, or in individual actions,  where one ship had to face another-  This accuracy of fire was in many  cases associated with ranges which a  few years ago would have been regarded as impracticable, if not possible. The annual returns now issued  show, however, how the gunners of  the navy have prepared themselves.  In the first place, there has been a  greater stringency in the test conditions. The target has been reduced,  the range increased and the speed  at which firing had to take place was  augmented.. The details regarding  these three" points are not disclosed in  t'le official return, nor is.any information given as to the time allowed for  the firing, so that it is not possible to  deduce the rate of hits per minute.  Sufficient evidence of improvement  is shown in the percentage of hits  to rounds fired from the various type  of gun now in the service. There is,  of course, no information regarding  the 15-ineh gun. tbe ships -carrying  which have only entered the fleet  since the war began. The 13.5-inch  gun was used for the first time in  li>12, when the percentage of hit-  to rounds fired was 58 per cent. In  the following year this had increased  to (.666 per cent., and in 1914 to 85.43  per cent.  It must be admitted, Engineering  says, that Ave have here not only evidence of the gunlayer, but of the modern gun-control y system, and also of  the success of the modern weapon  and all the appliances placed by the  manufacturer at the disposal of the  gun crew; The-iater 12-inch guns continue to show ' _k percentage between  52 and 55 of hits to" rounds fired. The  She uld Learn to Shoot  Trap  Ladies Should  Go  in   For (Both  and Field Shooting  There are many reasons why ladies  should go in for both trap and field  shooting. After thirty-one years of  nearly continuous shooting, I can  truthfully say 1 know of no other recreation that will do so much towards  keeping a woman in good health and  perfect figure than a few.hours spent  occasionally at trap shooting, and as  I am learning new stunts nearly every  week, I am quite sure that, providing  a woman has fairly good health and  eyesight, she is never too old to  learn.  Either shooting clay targets or  game in the field, there is just enough  exercise to do good, not to say anything about the fresh air you breathe.  Many ladies are afraid to start  shooting on account of the gun kicking. If the gun is heavy enough, not  overloaded and fits you properly, you  will find little if any recoil. I would,  however, suggest using a rubber recoil pad, fitted to the end of the stock.  I heard a gentleman say a short tim-e  sinca that he was going to buy his  wife a twenty bore and start her at  the traps. He woumn't think of using  such a light gun himself and he could  not have given l\er a worse handicap  to begin with, for while a twenty bore  is a pleasure to use on game in the  field, a twelve gauge, full choke (not  less than 7%) is what is needed for  trap shooting.  At first you should have some of  your gentlemen friends who know  how it should be done, give you some  instructions. If you do not care to go  to some gun club, have him buy a  hand trap and throw the targets easy  until you learn to break' some and  gain confidence. As to dress, something loose, so that your every movement will be free; your shoes should  have a Ioav, fiat heel, so as not to  throw you Forward. The hat should  be wide enough to shade the eyes and  fit snugly, but (.comfortably on the  head. All your clothing while at the  traps-should feel part of yourself.  When you. are going after a target,  concentration means everything.  After the first few weeks you will  find yourself looking forward to your  afternoon at the gun club, where,  judging from my personal experience,  I can safely say you will be a .welcome  guest.  Increase Efficiency  Of the Aeroplaiie  fecting  Remarkable Prophecy  latest 6-inch breech-loading gun,  which is extensively used in the later  battleships, also shows improvement.  In 1911-12 the percentage of hits to  rounds fired was only 49; in 1913 it  increased to 53.21, and in 1914 to  54.75. It should be remembered the  writer of the article points out/ that  the target is enormously smaller than  would be the enemy's ship, so that it  is easily understood that if in practice  under all atmospheric conditions such  a percentage is attained, the results  will be even better in actual war. The  four-inch breech-loader has also a percentage exceeding 50 per cent., as is  the case also with the 4.7-inch quick-  firer.  Ago, Fore-  tzr __���������_-���������_.

Danish Author, Fifty Years  ioid German Submarine  The Tagliche Rundschau reprints  parts of a dialogue from a comedy by  Erik Bogh, a Danish dramatist, which  was produced in Germany in 1863, and  caused quite some amusement and  much derision because of whal was  termed its "insane prophecies" at  that time. The name of the comedy  was "The Editor's Secretary" and the  dialogue is between him and Wimmel-  feld, an inventor, who is regarded as  mentally unbalanced. The most significant part of the dialogue is contained in the following scene:  "Wimmelfeld���������My visit is of great  importance.

British Committee Which..is. Testing,  New Appliances For Aircraft  Issues Annual Report  The report if ths advisory committee for aeronautics for the_ year 1914-  19i5 has been issued.

The Lancet remarks that it  would ba a remarkable outcome of  scientific discovery-if the new weapons; by their precision, should automatically extinguish themselves. If  armament should thus defeat its own  ends, arbitration should at length succeed, the paper believes. On the employment of poisonous gases the Lancet remarks:  "Glib references are made to the  possible use of potent poisons, arsenical gasss, prussic acid or some othe?  death dealing substances which shall  improve upon this chlorine compound',  adopted by the enemy. It is well to  remember that there is evidence that  the enemy has seriously and systematically studied this question for some  time, and we may ba fairly certain  that the gas was decided upon after  considerable trial as the most available and practicable for the- ghastly  ends in view. At all events, such  other deadly materials as may be  available, are as much in the enemy's  hands are in ours, and neither side  would be likely to gain any permanent    benefit  by such machinations.  i  Ir������__C?

Public opinion has been powerless to check destruction and will  remain so as long as the campaign for  wild life protection depends upon an  appeal to sentiment for its  dynamic  force.   No conservation issue can progress far on that basis.    The people  of this-continent move most resolutely  in response to economic motives, and  the necessary prelude to propsr protection of wild life in Canada is wider  dissemination of exact knowledge regarding its money value.  Recent experience in the United  States illustrates the force of economic motives. For several years efforts  were made in that country to secure  federal protection for migratory game  birds. The campaign was chiefly an  appeal to sentiment arid made little  headway. The proposal "w_s then extended to include insectivorous birds,  nrirlo.

BUILT A MONUMENT  The "Best Sort in the World  Australian  Elevators  The N.S. Wales minister for agriculture has made public his  scheme  for the bulk handling of wheat. Two  huge   elevators   are    to* be   built  at.  Sydney   and     Newcastle,     the     two  principle, seaports of the    state.    At  a latter date another will be erected  at Jervis Bay, the outlet port to the  new federal capital now building at  Canberra.    The Sydney silo will cost  $875,000. while.that at Newcastle will  cost $375,000.    In addition to this 35  elevators  will  be  built    at    various  country stations-    The work of erecting these will be spread over a period  of five years, and the total cost wiii  be about $4,375,000.   Each country elevator will have a capacity oC 200,000  bushels.   1,500 trucks will have to be  built for the work of shifting the liar-  vest of 40,000,000 bushels in the six  months.    The   estimated   cost  of  Instituting bulk handling    of wheat in  N.S. Wales will cost $11,045,000.   It Is  intended   to  co-operate   with   all   the  States in the matter of getting ships  of the proper type for the handll&g  of  the   wheat   in   bulk.     New   South  Wales  has  had  an  expert there  for  some  time   from  the   United" States,  dealing with the wholo matter.  wild life achieved the status of a national business  enterprise.  Canada's wild life is- as valuable as  that of the United States: To preserve  it as a national asset we need not  pursue the method adopted by our  American neighbors, but we do require to gain their sane viewpoint.  This is to certify that fourteea  years ago I got the cords of my left  wrist nearly severed, and was for  about nine months that I had no use  of my hand, and tried other Liniments, also doctors, and Was receiving no benefit. By a persuasion from  a friend I got MINARD'S LINIMENT  and used one bottle which completely  cured me, and have been using MIN-  ARDS LINIMENT in my family ever  since and find it the same as when  I first used it, and would never be  without it.

Drastic Action Is Necessary to Secure  Reoults  Canada ha_v for years bean trying  to rid herself of some of her more  prolific noxious weeds, but the work  has lacked tho thorough support of  those whoso duty it Ib to help in the  eradication of the pests. Concerted  nnd organized action is necessary, and  until this is secured the prospects of  success are not very bright- Public  opinion is too apathetic, and weed Inspectors are aware of this. Prosecutions for infractions of the Noxious  Weeds Act are rare, and consequently the penalty clause of this act haa  to a great extent lost its effect. More  pressure must bo put upon those responsible for Its enforcement.  A lesson In clearing up woods might  bo taken from the action of China regarding tho eradication of tho poppy  plant.    Tho following, from a roport  of the United States commercial attache at Nanking, China, indicates the  method by whicli rosults aro socurcd  iu that country: "Somo liituioi-t iu lho  restriction  of the  cultivation  of the  poppy wao aroused locally by tho dismissal of tho Nanking magistrate for  having   falsely   reported   his   district  clear of poppy, and the ImponUloii of  linos  on  a number of other district  mngintrat.es for the name reason.

In addition to  this express shipments will easily ay-  erage 100 crates day. There is practically no demand for corn or cucumbers  this season.  There is quite a lull in tomato shipping just now as the weather man is  not ripening, them so fast lately, but  there is still a busy time at the pack-'  ing house and the number of rigs  coming and going makes the place  look like Chicago market. Frank  Staples and staff of packers handled  400 crates of tomatoes on Tuesday.

While the southern and much of the  eastern parts of Southwest Africa are  barren, this has been Germany's most  promising colonial development- In  191- its German population was 12.-  292 as against -1,107 in German East  Africa and 3,806 at Kiao-ehao.

If Germans Do Not Use the Dum-Dum  Buiiet   They   Have   Something  Just as Good  Ever since tha beginning of the war  there have been accusations on    the  part   of   both   belligerents that theiiv  opponents   were  using  dum-duni; bullets, yet amongst the   vast quantities  of ammunition   captured   at different  times few cartridges of thfe* description have been discovered.   As a matter of fact, the    chief    evidence that!  can be called in support of the accusa- j  tion is the nature of the wounds in-!  dieted by. rifle fire.    The same thing  happened during the Boer war.    The  Manser  bullets   were   of  normal  pattern, yet terrible jagged wounds were  sometimes  inflicted    by them-    This  was explained by the tact that many  gunshot  wounds  were  caused 'by rebounding bullets which had been distorted from  their  original    shape by  touching   the   earth   before   reaching  the body of the soldier.  This explanation, plausible as it  sounds, is insufficient to cover a*l the  eases met. with in the present war,  so 11. S. Souttar has been led to make  a careful investigation of the problem,  the results of which he tells in one  of the chapters of his intensely interesting books, "A Surgeon in Belgium." The structure of the German  bullet, he says, is peculiar. It has a  very short point, so that when it  strikes it usually turns completely  over. A further, peculiarity is that  the hard casing does not over the  base of the bullet, so that on impact  the hinder part spreads out exactly-  like the front of a dum-dum, and thus  has very much tbe same effect as the  prohibited missile. Mr. Souttar was  surgeon-in-chief of the Belgian Field  hospital first in Antwerp, and afterwards in Dunkirk, Poperinghe and  Furnes.

Must   Take   Places  on  Who   Have   Enlisted  Armies  A scheme for the demonstration of  what women have done and are capable of doing on the lands of Great  Britain has been perfected by the  land council of the National Political  League.  The demand for the development of  the country's agricultural resources is  urgent. The country needs all the  food that it is capable of producing.  The supply of male labor is short, and  women are being trained for the work.  The shortage of men on the land is  surp to increase as long as the war  lasts.    Women must take their places-  Not only are the women being  taught the skilful tilling of the soil,  but they also are being trained to  the work required on dairy and poultry farms. Many of them are proving apt students and have progressed  in their studies far enough to. demonstrate that they can do farm work  in an acceptable manner. They seem  to realize that upon them to a large  extent develops the feeding of the  nation, -  Landowners who have come forward and are helping generously in  this kind of education for women include Lord Beauclmmp, Lord Hythe,  Colonel Innes, Lady Brassey, Mrs.  Barwell, Lady Hulton, Colonel Stephenson Clarke, and Captain Spencer  Churchill.

Oh the contrary, wheat is much mo:*e  tender than flax. For example, Russia does not cultivate wheat in North  Russia, because the climate there is  too cold, therefore the Russians cultivate flax in North Russia, but wheat  in South Russia. To compare the climate in Western Canada with the climate of North Russia it is sufficient  to state that the flax plant takes In  Russia 100 days to ripen, whereas in  Western Canada it takes but 85 to 90  days. Therefore Western Canada is  much more adapted for flax growing,  besides -he soil here is richer than  the soil in North Russia.  Minard's Liniment Cures Distemper.

Nervous Children  Hard Study and Too Little  Exercise Leads to St.  _/__-������__i    | innnA  There is much criticism of modern  educational methods that require too  much work of school children, allowing them too little time for play and  preventing sufficient out-of-door exer-  cisa.

Sometimes tha child |  stumbles in walking and drops whet!  it  tries  to  hold.     Pallor,  listlessness  and irritability    are    symptoms    that  early show that the blood and nerves  are failing to meet the demands made  up"___ theni, and that St. Vitus dance  has fastened its hold upon the child-  In this condition there is no tonic  can  equal    Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills,  .which build up the blood, strengthen  the nerves and safely help to meet t_e  demands of the growing child. Out-of-  door exercise, nourishing food, plenty  of sleep    with    these tonic pills will  cure even the most severe cases of St.  Vitus dance.    We offer the following  proof:    '*Up to the age of ten years,"  says Mrs. Johnson, of Hemford, N.S.,  "my  son  Calvin  wus as healthy and  rugged as any. child could be.    Then  he  began  to  complain that  his eyes  hurt him, and of pains in  the head,  and began to faii back in his studies  at school.   Then I noticed a twitching  of the muscles of his face and arms,  and later his whole body seemed to be  in constant motion. Our family physician   was   called   in* and   pronounced  the   trouble    a   severe   attack of St  Vitus dance.    He was under the. doctor's treatment for some three montha  but did not seem to improve. We had  taken him from school, and Avere earful   that   nothing   should  excite  him,  but  notwithstanding he  grew   worse,  and the least Rtart would bring on attacks of hysteria.    This went on i'or  some months until Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills    were    brought, to my attention,  and we decided to give him this medicine.    After using a few boxen thero  was a noticeable improvement, and by  tho    time  he had  taken  nine or ten  boxes   he  had   recovered   bin   former  good health.    Thero has been no sign  of a return of the trouble, and I win  -I'iircely hiiv how thankful we feel for  the complete reHtorafion of our hou'h  health."

For  these contracts orders have been  placed for 170,000 tons of steel, 30,-  000 tons of lead and several thousand  tons of other material. Canada will  be shortly .turning out 50,000 shells  -per .day.-- ���������������������������.������������������ ������������������   ���������  These facts were given by Colonel  Alexander 'Bertram, chairman, of the  shell committee, appointed by the Dominion government, to superintend  the manufacture of munitions of war,  in au address to the delegates to  the Canadian Manufacturers' association convention at Toronto recently.    Colonel Bertram said:  "Shortly after the war broke out  the   minister of militia received an  order from  the British -. government  for supplies*of arms and ammunition.  Contracts were placed for these, both  in Canada and the United States and  then   came    the    request for 200,000  shrapnel shells,   unloaded,   in    equal  numbers of 15 and 18-pounders.   Can-  ada'possesses   in   the city of Quebec  a modern plant for the manufacture  of shells, but'its capacity is limited.  It can only produce    75    shells per  day, which we now see was quite inadequate to meet the demand, qjhere  was only one thing to do.    The minister of militia conceived the idea of  utilizing  the     engineering    factories  throughout   the Dominion    fJJr   shell  manufacture, and to secure   the    cooperation of employees and employers  in   the engineering trades to take up  this patriotic work.  "A committee was appointed to organize the movement throughout the  Dominion. The members of this committee are; iviessrs. 'i'hos. Cantie-"- of  New Glasgow, George W. Watts,''Toronto; B. Carnegia.

"As a direct outcome of the work  of the shell committee a copper refinery in Canad'a will be made possible. Our tsxper_ei_c3 in. nine months  has demonstrated the fact a that the  Dominion, while it would undoubtedly  benefit every manufacturer who usts  copper, is abovt. all things a military  necessity.

"It   was   agreed   to supply   all the  component parts  of    shells  free    of  charge to.-those manufacturers    who  would undertake the    work of finishing    and    assembling    the  complete  shells.   In this way many of the smaller manufacturers were relieved of the  financial burden of carrying a heavy  stock   of   the   raw   materials,     and  which  very  largely    contributed    to  the" success of this huge undertaking.  It was further decided    to eliminate  unhealthy competition by paying uniform price   for the same article.    An  inspection company was    chosen    to  deal with-all .-shell components, tluis  relieving the assembling manufacturers   of   the   responsibility   of   inspection,    while    at the same time satisfying    the  shell   committee    beyond  question that the component parts of  shells were correct it. every particu-  the finished article pass-  hands of the government  ^*   Canadians    Have    Net  Ye*   Realized  What the War  Means  Up to the present time Canada has  raised a force  of about one-tenth of  what she could raise if every man of  military age    were    to    be   drafted.  Though alt the men who have been  called   for  by   the   government   have  come forward except    the last 35,000  now    being mustered,    and in many  quarters Canada   has    received   high  praise for the alacrity with which, she  sprang to the assistance of the AMoth--  er  Country,   such   a   showing  as   we  have^made  we  should  consider: contemptible   if  made   by   Greece,   Rou-  mania or Bulgaria.

Hon. Arthur Meighen said a few  days ago that it might yet be necessary for every able-bodied Canadian  to go to the front or to discharge  some other equally necessary duty  connected with the war.  It  is  said that    recruiting for the  draft of 35,000 men recently called for  has been slow-    If this be true, there  are two conditions that would seem to  explain it:    First, Canadians have not  realized    as  the     Belgians  and  French have   realized  what the  means, that they have from the first  assumed the inevitable triumph of the  Allies, and that we were, not greatly  needed;   the  second  condition, which  is partly connected with   the first, is  that  such a small  number as  was called for."   The way to get  men speedily is    to    call for 100,000.  If a demund    were made for half a  million men it would bring home to  Canadians as nothing yet    has done  the extreme gravity of the situation,  and the necessity    for   the   .greatest  sacrifices.   When only 35,000 men are  --ailed for the notion that Canada does  not need to  exert herself greatly is  strengthened,    and this notion makes  it ail the more difficult to enroll the  men desired. If a call were to be put  out for half a million men they would  come forward, and the 35,000 immediately required would be selected from  them.

Here,  says the Chicago Daily News, are  some of the things Britain is doing*  "1���������-Holding the seas for the ships  of her allies as well as for her own-  "2���������Protecting the coasts of her allies as well as her own;  "3���������Struggling in co-operation with  the Freu-h, * to s__,s.s.h the Turks,  and win the Balkaif's for -the allied  cause.' :'������������������-  "_���������Rendering great aid to French  and Belgian troops in resisting the  terrible onslaughts of the Germans  on the allied left wing in the west.  "5���������-Making loans and supplying  munitions to nearly all her partners  in the war.  "6���������Pursuing a financial policy in  southeastern Europe likely to promote the cause of the nationalities-  "7���������Putting into the field more than  ten times as many man as she ever  promised.  "8���������Guarding her own soil and people against an invasion, which if it  came��������� and it is believed to be far  from "impossible���������doubtless would  be the most savage, the most unsparing, ever known. With how  many men? Well, with ei-ough. T_  hear some people talk, one would  suppose that upon Britain were laid  the duty of defending every land bui  her own.  "Britain's wealth and sea power  and military power are the one sure  safeguard against the triumph of Germany's unparalleled war machine.  Without Britain's help, France and  Russia certainly must have been  crushed. Without Britain's wholehearted participation in the war, who  will say that Italy would have ventured to challenge the mighty and  mercilsss Germanic coalition? With  Britain out of the struggle would  there have been any hope of the Balr  kan states daring to move?  "And Britain���������never forget it���������was  not compelled to go to the aid of  France. Come what, might, the most  that ever Britain promised Franc -  were six divisions������������������120 000 men. She  was not in honor bound to send a  single soldier more- She could have  stayed out of the war. Germany had  begged her to stay put of the war.  Disgraced she might have been���������as  Britons think, must have been���������if she  had left Belgium and France and  European liberty to their doom.  "But she    could    have done this.  Few nations    are    without disgrace,  without historical pages    they    fain  would obliterate.    Britain was Anot attacked.    France and Russia wore at- .  tacked.    Britain might have awaited  the onseVas America is awaiting, the  onset.     .Britain   might    have   stood  clear, might have husbanded her resources    of    men and money, might  swiftly   have   prepared',   even   might'  have loomed over the stricken adversaries  in  the    end  and claimed the  hegemony of Eurnp*0 for herself.  "Britain did not do so.  "She threw   into    the balance her  impressive racial record,    her    prestige,  her unrivallea  diplomatic skill.  She   threw���������is   throwing���������will  throw  into the balance the whole puissance  of her empire.  "And all for what? For the principle���������the fruits of the principle���������of  the liberty of the individual against  the despotism of the state.  "Britain, cine can believe, may be  the author of some acts of which she  is not proud���������may have done some  things to cause her, looking back upon them with full light, to wish they  had never been done. But in this  war this old, and proud fliemocracy is  unfolding, " applying a material  strength and a moral splendor that  for countless agp.s aftf-* this? conflict  is stilled wiii be shining Uuuiu___-&  amid the first glories of history."

The   thoughtful   reader     will   say,  "Surely in the battle of man against  ^microbe there must be some natural  means of defence by which men have  conquered   in  the  past,  long  before  the microscope was invented!" He is  right; and science is never better employed than in studying these natural  defences, writes Dr, C. W. Saleeby in  the Youth's Companion. For example,  we find no microbes at all in air after  it passes  through the healthy nose.  The  nose  is  the  original  "domestic  filter" for all microbes in dust in the  air. * Its secretions are antiseptic also,  and man has no more valuable outwork of defense than a normal nose.  A choked nose, through which n person cannot breathe, means that microbes enter the lungs freely by way of  the fllterless mouth.  In tho stomach we find freo hydrochloric acid, produced some half hour  or loss after a mor.l. Its production  from the common salt or sodium  chloride of the blood by the living  cell.*, tha'*. lino tho stomach Is one of  tho wholly Inimitable feats of the  body. Until recently most of us  thought that the hydrochloric acid  was formed In the stomach solely In  order to digest food, but now wo have  evidence to show thnt this hydrochloric acid Is also a valuable antiseptic,  working, for once, inside the body  without hurting it, and probably orten  saving us from tho microbes of consumption nnd typhoid fever. Thus tho  two grout, avenues of entry to. the  body nre in a largo degreo guarded.  .It may bo added that no known microbe can, unaided, peuetrato lho aur-  fnee of the unbroken nnd healthy  okln.  ment as it is concerned with the  dairy industry in Saskatchewan, is  shown'by the Tact that in 1914 no  less than 3,625 farmers patronized  the government co-operative creameries, being a number 35 per cent,  larger than that of the previous year.  Four thousand cases of Alberta  butter were shipped aboard the Ma-  kura for Australia, July 5. Usually  the shipments come from the other  direction, for New Zealand butter  has quite a reputation herjj.. But  following ^ a drought in Australia,  there is av butter shortage. The  shipment was ir. response to cabled  offers to Vancouver commission  houses.  in  is  Fate of the Hapsburgs  Western Butter Trade  -L  Growth   of   the   Co-operatlvve  mer.t In Saskatchewan  A   fair Idea,    of   Ihe growth  co-operative      Movement      in  Saskatchewan    In    provided   by  announcement,    mado  recently,  Move-  or the  rural  tho  that  tho provincial dairy commissioner  had at tlmt time, Idled tho larger I  ningle butter order ever given in  Western Cnnadii, hliving sold for  uhipnient lo British Columbia no  lens than ulna cnrlondn of butter,  aggregating ur>2,000 pound*., the sulc  price being i!C eenti: per pound, or  ifOI'.l.iiU.

The   Brands *of   Wool   Produced  Canada  Are  N6t All   Required  Within Canada  Canada's   total   wool  production  officially  given   at     about   14,000,000  pounds per year. ..Of this, about one.  quarter was exported in the year ending   March   SI,   1915,   chiefly   to   the  United      States,   where   connections  have   been   established   and   certain  standard  lines   of  woollens   are  produced from Canadian wool-  The ordinary commercial trade in  woollens in Canada has been considerably curtailed, but war orders  have just about balanced lack of ordinary trade orders. Were an embargo placed on wool, it would leave  a surplus of Canadian wool on hand  in Canada that would drug the market sufficiwntiy to break prices 50 to  ������J0 per cent. This actually Happened  a few weeks ago, when u temporary  embargo was placed on wool going  to the United States.  Canada imported during the fiscal  year 1914-, over 0,000,000 pounds of  wool, and exported 2,841,000 pounds.  The reason for this exchange of  wools is that tliere is a wide variety  of wool for widely different purposes. Eaeh country has its own  peculiar grades, the product of certain breeds and climatic conditions.  At tha present time, the brands jf  wool produced in Canada are not all  required within Cui.adn.

They   take   as   their   text  General Castelnau's declartion:  "War  must be waged not by the shock of  men,  but   by  the  shock  of: ammunition."  A year ago the ammunition supplies  for the three-inch field guns were  only 1,200 shells per gun, with a reserve of 200. It had been increased  from 700 iier gun in 1909, after General Langlois had declared in the  senate that the supply then on hand  would be just sufficient for a day and  a half of battle. He asked for 3,000  shells per gun. Only 1,400 were granted, provision being made for the manufacture of 13,500 shells a day in the  government arsenals.  The first month of war showed.th:*.*;  all estimates as 'to needed ammunition were too lov/. French arsenals  and private factories are now said to  be producing 170,000 shells a day. Notwithstanding the continued demands  of the press for more ammunition,  this is supposed to be sufficient for  current needs, besides creating a big  reserve stock, careful estimates putting at from 100,000 to 150,000 the  number of shells now being used each  day.  The prodigality of the French army  in shells has already been set forth  In despatches. The intensity of the  German ilre is Indicated by the actual  count of 20,000 shells fired in an hour  and a half upon a French position  _50 yards in length and 400 yards in  depth in tho Bois d'Ailly.  It Is estimate-, that more than 200,-  000 shells were used by them in the  actions between April 5 and April IS  in tho Forest of Apremont, while tlio  French over a limited front near  Sousaln in Chainpagno llred 100,000  shells of largo calibre.  The consumption of small arms  ammunition, though thero havo been  no great pitched battles since the  battle of Yser, is also a, great problem, due In part to the greatly extended use of machine guns. Fifty  of these weapons, ilrhig constantly al  the rate of :S0O ctirtrldges ;������������������ minute,  use a. million an hour. The number  of cartridges used on both fronts,  from the Carpathians to the North  Sea, has been estimated ut SO.OOO.noo  a day. The equipment of the French  army alone, not. providing for the reserve ammuuitlon, requires UOO.OOO,-  000.  Captain Scott's Old Ship Now Carry-  lyiiL  The famous ship Discovery, which,  carried Captain Scott and his crew  on his celebrated,: but tragic expedition to the South Pole, slipped quietly and unnoticed into New York harbor, recently. She 5. -carrying a cargo  of ammunition to France.  Built in 1900 by tae Royal Geographic Society at Dundee, Scotland,  for Captain Scott's Antarctic expedition, the Discovery for two winters  was solidly frozen in the ice fields.  The money spent in the hard woods  of her hull was fully justified time  and again during the perilious months  in crushing ice near the southern extremity of the world..  After her Antarctic voyage the ship  was sold to the Hudson Bay company.  She has made * several voyages between the busy piers of London and  the foresaken trading posts along  Hudson Bay in quest of cargoes of  skins and furs.  Being built to withstand ice pressure, her great bowa are mado ot  hard woods, eighteen feet solid. Teak,  greenheart, stout oak and pitch pino  have gone into her construction without a thought for expense. In strength  the Discovery Is a Gibraltar of the  sens.  Her hull at its thinnest places Ib  two feet three inches in Ihicknoss. Of  this thickness there is one foot of  oak, one foot of teakwood and three  inches of pitch pine. Iron has not  been used on tho Discovery, for it  would have seriously Interfered with  the compass and other dclicato instruments, which were located forward, and upon which rested in great  degree the success of tho voyage.  Copper has boen used to a great  extent. The crew, proud of its flt-  tings, point to tlio copper joints,  blocks and the like, which meant the  investment of a small fortune.
