Miss Nlta Reid, who' taught the  ErlclcBon school last yoa_, has just  boon appointed to tho staff of Grand  Forks sohool.  The first letters from the Creston  boys with, the -Third Canadian Contingent arrived on Thursday last.  They had calm weather for the  whole voyage and had _xo - protection whatever from submarine attack until within a day'.s sail of the  Irish coast. Describing the trip, in  ������;;lefc.er to?*h_s-fetherr BiUyJBtall  says in part:  ��������� Just a few lines to let you know that  we have landed safely in England.  We sailed on the Grampian, one of the  Allan line boats, and couldn't haye  wished for a better trip. The sea was  just like a millpond all tht way, "With  a little fog in places.  ������  Every night we had a whist drive,  and tho piano was?-, going from morning till night.   There was something  doing all the time.    We saw several  whales and porpoises.   We were not  escorted till we were a day ont from  England.    When we K������t up Saturday  morning there was  a -..little torpedo  boat destroyer: alongside  us, which  just kept running ringsa around us till  we got into port.   'There was: another'  destroyer in front of vis a few miles  and it rammed a German submarine.  Every morning we had physical drill  and ii- fire drill.    When call or the  general alarm was given we had to  rush downstairs and put on bur lifebelts, close the port holes, thep rush  up to the; deck, line up, and remain  still; wo got pretty slick at it.  I sure don't like travelling oh an  English train. Eight in ��������� a compartment, just llko sardinoB. The Engliwh  people go crazy when Canadians pass  through; wave and holler just like a  lot of kids.  .Thecanlip Ib about two miles from  Shornclitt'ts but if a fellow walks across  tho foothills hq Can get into Folkstone  in 15 mihutoH. ' We are under ciinyas  now and it _eoms alright.   Ay hen I.  With the able assistance of the  weatherman, who favored -with an  ideal Kootenay summer afternoon,  Creston fittingly commemorated the  first anniversary of the declaration of  war against Germany, on Wednesday  afternoon and evening.  Proceedings started shortly after 2  p.m., when a probession of about 100  school children* was formed at the  Mercantile corner "and headed Joy the  Creston band marched to the* town  park, being joined at tbe armory by a  detachment of the borne guard under  command of Color-Sergt. Callander.  After quite a large turnout of citizens from both town and country had  disposed of themselves about the  arounds, and the band had rendered a  few selections, the company of home  guards was put through some field exercises and squad drift, and then followed a programme of races for tht  children, some of the winners being:  Boys, under 10-.

Both, spe.kei-s were" applauded  throughout their address. The motion  having been regulariy moved by R. M.  Reid and seconded by A. Miller was  then put and carried amid tremendous  enthusiasm.  The proceeds of the concert were $35.  After paying some slight expenses the  balance will be turned oyer to the  demonstration committee who will  apportion it to the iobacco or sock  funds or hand it over to the Red Cross  to be expenked by them.  A few kind words are due those who  took part in the program, which was  arranged on very short notice by a  committee from the band. - And in  turn the band is to be commended for  the splendid music supplied throughout the day and evening. Many thanks  also to the committees who handled  the affair and to those who contributed prize money.

Mason of Behecia, California,  who about 18 months ago came into  possession of 350 acres of land in the  Arrow Creek country, was here this  week for his first look at his recently-  acquired property, which is on Okell  Creek, adjoining the Arrowsmith land.  Mr. Mason secured the tract in exchange for improved property in Van- -  couver, and after a good look over it  he told The Review that in making  the exchange he was confident he had  made one of the best deals he had ever  put through.   He is not only immensely pleased With bis own 350 acres  but with that section generally, which  he considers fully as good . _ any other  part o������ Cres-on Valley.  Better still, if the government will  provide a road to give comfortable  access to the property Mi*. Mason will  1 undertake to bring in settloi*s to take  up a good portion of the land as soon  as the highway is completed. In this  connection he had a conference with  Road Supt. Benney on Tuesday when  the question was gone into thoroughly, and the visitor assured that the  matter would be brought io the attention of the proper authorities.  Mr. Mason's plan is to bring in a  class of people who know something  of pioneer life and to assi_t 111 .in over  the first lew years he will put m a  portable sawmill and give employment  at times when work on the land is ont  \ ot the quedilou, providing a payroll,  and at the same lime making lurcher  for building purposes available to tbe  settlers at x'ight prices.   He was much  taken with a water power on one corner of his place with ample capacity  for a-tidy little electric light plant.  Undoubtedly Mr. Mason means business. He has good recommendations  on that _core.

Master Fick-  lin's house was a somewhat large one  and was surrounded by a wailed garden, perhaps two acres in extent,  which ran back from the house to a  little brook which bounded the village.

I did not like  company overmuch since  friends had more or less  her.  I passed through the hall, out of the  back door and into the garden. 1  stood a moment, hesitating, wondering  whether after all I had the right or  Hie privilege to break in upon such  company as she might be entertaining,  when a scream which came faintly  from the end of the garden decided  me.  I broke into a run and in a few  moments came upon my iady struggling in the arms of a man. What  man, you ask? The Duke of Arcester!  He had his arms around her, and although lie was no great shakes of a  man, he was much stronger than the  slight girl he was gripping with. He  held her tightly by the waist with one  hand and with the other was trying to  turn her head so that he could kiss  her.  I was upon them before they realized my arrival. I grasped the duke  by the collar of his coat with my  left hand and with my right 1 fairly  tore him away from my lady.  "Thank God, you have come!" she  cried, reeling and staggering, her face  Hushed, her hair disheveled, her dress  in di?array.  I heard that much and then iho  duke was upon me.

He stared at me absolutely uncomprehending, but before he could make  a move I" caught him around the  breast, pinioned both his arms to  his side and then I deliberately shortened my sword, holding it by the  blade, and cut two long, deep gashes  in his left cheek. He struggled and  shrieked horribly as well, but I held  him close until I finished.  '.'Now," said I to Mistress Lucy, "before I release him, one more question.  Did���������did he kiss you?"  "No," answered Mistress Lucy  faintly.  "Good!" I continued grimly. ��������� '"Had  he done so I would have marked the  other cheek.  He was a handsome man, but those  two scars roughly crisscrossed would  never be eradicated, for I had cut deep  with deliberate purpose. After that  I released him, and he staggered away  spitting blood, his cheek bleeding, a  horrible looking object.  "That will be a lesson to your  grace," saicl I, "not to insult an honest  woman- I have no doubt there are  many who would rejoice to see you  now."  "I will have the law on you. I will  have your life,' he sputtered out.  "You can have anything you want,"  said I recklessly. "1 am your master,  with the sword and with everything  else.   Now go!"

The  grant adventure hnd begun  Deesls that Stirred  the British Empire  The Glorious Stand of the Canadians  at Ypres  (By the Canadian Record Officer)  The recent fighting in Flanders, in  which the Canadians played so glorious a part, cannot, of course, be described with precision of military detail until time has made possible the  co-ordination otTreievant diaries, and  the piecing 'together in a narrative  both lucid and exact of much which,  so near the event, is confused and  blurred. But it is-considered right, that  those mourning in Canada today fo  husbands, sons or brothers who have  given their lives for the empire  should have, .with, as littie reserve  as military considerations allow,A the  rare and precious consolation which,  _ i  cord of the valor of their dead must  bring.

But as long as brave,  deeds retain, the power to fire the  blood of "Anglo-Saxons, the stand  made by the Canadians in those  desperate days will be told by fathers  to their sons, for in the military records of Canada this defence will  shine as brightly as, in the records  of British army, the stubborn valor  with which Sir James Macdounel an'd  the Guards beat back from Hougou-  mont the Division of Foy and the  Army Corps of Reille.  The Canadians have wrested from  the trenches, over the bodies of the  dead and maimed, the right to stand  side by side with'the suberb troops  who, in the first battle of Ypres,  broke and drove before them the  flower of the Prussian Guards.  Looked at from any point, the  performance would be remarkable,  It is amazing to soldiers, when the  genesis and composition of the Canadian Division are considered. It contained, no doubt, a sprinkling of  South African veterans, but it consisted in the main of men who were admirable raw material, but who at the  outbreak of war wero neither disciplined nor trained, as men count discipline aud training in these days of  scientific warfare.  It wus, it is true, commanded by a  distinguished English general. Its staff  was supplemented, without being replaced, by some brilliant British staff  officers. But in its higher nnd regimental commands woro to be found  lawyers, college professors, business  men, and real estate agents, ready  with cool self-contUlence- to do battle  against an organization iu which tha  study of military science la ihe exclusive pursuit of laborious lives. With  what devotion, with a valour how desperate, with reaoureuftilncM how cool  and how fruitful, tho amateur soldiers  of Canada confronted overwhelming  oddfj may, perhaps, he made .clear  evcif by a'narrative so incomplete as  the prcr.iMit.  The salient of Ypres ban become  familiar to all students of the campaign in Flandei'H. Like all salients,  it was, and was known to bt������, a Hource  of weakness to the forces holding it,  but lho reasons which havo led to Its  ���������retention are apparent, and need not  h_ explained.  On April -J.-J, the Canadian Division  held a line of, roughly, 5,000 yanlfl, ox-  tending iu a north westerly direction  from the Ypren���������Kotilorn railway to  liie Yi'pi'fs-i��������� Poclcapcllo road, ami con*-  iHM'tlnj* at lis termlnuH wlih the  Freneh  troops.

Of the |  infantry brigades the first was in reserve, the second was on the right;  and the third established contact with,  the allies at the point indicated above.  The day was a peaceful one, warm  and sunny, and except that the previous day had witnessed a further  bombardment of the stricken town of  Ypres, everything seemed quiet in  front of the Canadian line. At five  o'clock in the afternoon a.plan,y.carefully prepared, was pur into execution:  ��������� i <vj\ i������-ic<.

The  result was that the French were compelled to give ground for a considerable distance.

The immediate consequences of this  enforced withdrawal were, of course,  extremely grave. 1 he 3rd Brigade of  the Canadian Division was without  any left, or, in other words, its left  w*as in the air.  It became imperatively necessary  greatly to extend the Canadian lines  to the left rear. It was not, of -course,  practicable to move the 1st Brigade  from reserve at a moment's notice,  and the line, extended from 5,000 to  9,000 . yards, was naturally not the  line that bad heen held by-the allies  at five o'clock, and a gap still existed  oh its left.  It became necessary for Brigadier-  General Turner, commanding the 3rd  "������~.-i=- -i -       x _    J-l.M.���������.    u������x*.,_    i.;*.-   t nft-    -_<^*-._  J311g_U_,     LU     LU.IMV      Uul^iV    11..J    J.^._-    i.������...v  southward to protect his rear- In the  course of the confusion -which, followed on the readjustments of position,  the enemy, who had advanced rapidly after his initial successes, took  four British 4.7 guns in a small wood  to the west of the viiiage of St.-.Tuli'en,  two miles in the rear of the original  French trenches. ���������  The story of the second battle of  Ypres is the story of how the Canadian Division, enormously outnumbered���������for they had iu front of them at  least four divisions, supported by immensely heavy artilery���������W'ltil a gap  still existing, though reduced, in their  lines, and with dispositions made hurriedly under the stimulus of critical  danger, fought through the day, and  through the night, and then through  another day and night; fought under  their officers still, as happened to  so many, those perished gloriously,  and then fought from the impulsion of  sheer valour because they came from  fighting stock.  The enemy, of course, was aware  ���������whether fully or not may perhaps be  doubted���������of the advantage his breach  in the line had given him, and immediately began to push a formidable  series of attacks on the whole of the  newly-formed Canadian salient. It it  is possible to distinguish when the  attack was everywhere so fierce, it  developed with particular intensity at  this moment on the apex of the newly  formed line, running-in the direction  of St. Jtilien.  It has already been stated that four  British guns were taken in u wood  comparatively early in the evening  of April 22. In the course of that  night, and under the heaviest machine gun flro, this wood waa assaulted by the Canadian Scottish, 36th  Battalion of the .lid Brigade, und tho  1.0th Battalion of tho 2nd Brigade,  whicli was intercepted for this purpose on, its way to a reserve trench,  The battailous were respectively commander by Lieut.-Colonel Leckio and  Lieut.-Colonel Boyle, und after a moHt  fierce struggle in the light of a misty moon, they took the position at the  point of the  bayonet.  At midnight tho 2nd Battalion, under Lleut.-ColoiiGl Watson, and the  Toronto Regiment Queen's Own, 3rd  Battalion, under Liout.-Colonol Bonnie, both of tho 1st Brigade, brought  up much needed relnforcemcnta, and  though not tutually engaged in the  assault, wero in reserve. All through  the following days and nlghta these  battalions shared the fortunes and  misfortunes of the 'Ird Brigade.  An officer who took part in tlio attack describes how the mon about  him fell under'the lire of tlio mach-  Ino guns, which, in his p lira bo, play  cd upon them "lilec a watering pot."  1 Io added quite dimply, "1 wrote ray  own llfo off." But tho lino novei  wavered.  When one man loll another look liia  place, aud with a final nil on I; llio mi.-  vlvorii of the two battalions Hung  themselves Into the wood.

This was carried out by the Ontario .  1st a'na\-y_th Battalions of the 1st Brigade, under ������������������.Brigadier-General Mercer,  acting in combination with a British  brigade, which had been hurried-to  the front. It is safe to say that the  youngest private in the ranks, as he  set his teeth for the advance, knew  the task in front of him, and the  youngest subaltern knew all that rested on its success. .It did not seem  that any human being could live in  tha shower of shot and shell which  began to play upon the advancing  troops.  They suffered terrible casualties.  For a short time every otber man  seemed to fall, but the attack was  pressed ever closer aad closer.

With a hoarse cry of anger they  sprang forward (for, indeed, they  loved him) as if to avenge his death.  The astonishing, attack 'Which: followed, pushed home in. the face of  direct'frontal fire, made in broad daylight, by battalions "Whose names  should Hve for ever in the memories  of soldiers", was carried to the  first line of the German trenches. After a hand-to-hand struggle, the last  German who resisted was bayoneted,  and the trench was won.  The measure of this success may  ba taken when it is pointed out that  this trench represented ^in the German advance the apex in the breach  which the enemy had made in the  original line of the allies, and. that it  was two i.nd a half miles south of  that line. This charge, made by men  who looked death indifferently in the  face���������for no man who took part in it  could think that he was'likely to live  ���������saved, and that was much, the Canadian left.    But it did more.  Up to the point where 'tha assail- ���������  ants conquered or died, it secured and  maintained during the most critical  moment of all the integrity o������ the allied line. For the trench was not only *  taken, it was held thereafter*, against  all comers, and in the teeth of every  conceivable projectile, until the night  of Sunday, April 25, when all that remained of tho war-broken *but victorious battalions was relieved by fresh  troops.  It is necessary now to return to the  fortunes of the 3rd Brigade, commanded by Brigadier-General Turner,  which, as wa have seen, at five o'clock,  on Thursday waB holding the Canadian left, and aftor their first attack  assumed tlio defence of the new Canadian salient, ut tho sumo time, spar-  in}** all tho men it could to form an  extemporized line between lho wood  and St. .Tulleii. Tlii:, Brigade was  also, at tho Unit moment of tho German offensive, nimlo the object of nn  attack by the discharge of poisonous  gas. Tlio discharge waa followed by  two enemy assaults.  Although tho fnniof} were extremely polaonouH, they wore not, pcrlmpn,  having regard to tlio ���������wind, ao disabling as on tlio French Jiuos (which  ran almost east to west) and the Brigade though urfoeUul by the funies,  stoutly beat back tho two German assaults, lgncourugcd by this f.,uccoB������,  it rose to tho wupromo effort required  by tho asaault on tho wood, which haa  alroudy heon described.

The summer months are the most  dangerous to children. The complaints  of that season, which are cholera .infantum, colic, diarrhoea and dysentry,  come on so quickly that often a little  one is beyond aid before the mother  realizes he is ill. The mother must  be on her guard to prevent these,  troubles, or if they do come on suddenly to cure them. No other medicine'is of such aid to mothers during  the hot weather as is Baby's Own  Tablets. They regulate the stomach  and bowels and are absolutely safe.

An amusing story is going the round  of the Tyne shipyards at present concerning the recent visit of the king,  accompanied by Earl    Kitchener, to  certain local works.   The royal party  was in the drawing office of a celebrated firm recently, when the door  opened somewhat noisily, and a youth  entered,  apparently in  ignorance  of  the presence of the visitors. "You are  not one of the draughtsmen, are you?"  inquired his lordship of the new-comer.   "No, sir, I am the office boy," was  the reply, given with such an air of  self-importance  that  the    habitually  stern face of K. of K. relaxed. Turning to the king, the war lord gravely  exclaimed, "Your majesty, the office  boy."  The Secret of the Swiss  There is no Swiss race. There is no  Swiss language- The people of Switzerland are German, French cr It������ ii. u  in race and language. But in patriotism they are all Swiss.  Of the twenty-two cantons fifteen  are German, five are French and two  are Italian. Incidentally it may be  mentioned that twelve of the cantons  are strongly Protestant and ten  strongly Catholic. Yet there is absolute national unity. Switzerland  stands solidly and harmoniously for  Switzerland. The German, Swiss ot  Schaffhausen are not for ��������� Germany:  the French Swiss of Geneva are not  for France; the Italian Swiss or  Ticino are not for Italy; and this in  spite of the fact that these outlying  cantons nr.*- almost surrounded by  Germany, France and Italy respectively. Racial ties and ties of language may be strong, but the ties of  patriotism arc much stronger.���������Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Although nothing in the way of  a hustle for fund's has been undertaken at least two schemes have  been put forward. One to get 32  men to put up $25 each has been  abandoned, some prospective contributors excusing themselves in  advance by remarking that if they  had that amount of money they  would use it to pay some of their  debts.  The second move is to circulate a  subscription list, each donor giving  the amount lie can stand; small  contributions thankfully received,  larger ones in proportion. This  latter method is the correct one,  provided the men behind the gun  have looked the Valley over onre-  fully, and alter making due allowance for non-contributors, are convinced the money is obtainable and  are prepared to devote the necessary time and labor to go git it.  Undoubtedly tlio Valley should  do something in this connection,  and if most of us will mako a little  sacrifice, and some real hustlers  will handle tho lists the money can  be raiwid.

Letters About Pensions  How to Dire.t Correspondence to Get  Prompt  Attention  The _uiUiU������ department advises that  will be needed in.Europe; tliat capital  will not be loaned to us because it  will be required to rebuild the shattered cities and public woi'ks; and  that all the^ionflicting nations will: be-  compelled to patronize their own  farms and factories to save them from  ruin.  The optimists contend that our immigration will be swelled -by thousands w*ho will be tired of perpetual  conflicts; that capital, regardless of  sentiment, seeks the most profitable  lields; and that if we cannot get it in  Europe we can get it in the United  States; and that the assistance of  Canadian factories and farms must be  called upon to help rehabilitate Europe.  f high standing and sound  judgment are ranged on both sides of  this controversy, but there arc- indications that the optimists are prevailing. At any rate, economic history is  fairlv consistent on one point���������the  trade of a victorious nation thrives  when the period of readjustment, immediately following the termination  01 a successful war, is over.  There is agreement as to the necessity of increasing the production of  our land. We li-vve plenty of land,  but land without tillers will not produce wealth.

Canada needs an immigration  i policy which can succeed in settling  1 experienced farmers from Europe and  as given in.a move than ordinarily in  teresting bulletin by Assistant Dominion  Botanist, J. Adams,  M.A.,, would  take  up   tn   exceptional    amount  of  space.    Mr  Adams entitles  his  publication, "Medicinal Plants and Their  Cultivation iu Canada.'    It is Bulletin  No. 23, second scries, of the Experimental Farms, and can be had free by  addressing; the   'Publications   Branch,  Department    of Agriculture,  Ottawa.  Director Gvisdale of tho Dominion Experimental _\inns, makes a correct estimate when he says, "Such information as is contained .'n this publication  should    be of value to many of our  farmers."   Dominion Botanist Giissow  explains   that   the   bulletin- owes   its  preparation to the numerous inquiries  received from time to time relating to  the cultivation of plants possessed of  certain medicinal or health-restoring  properties.   Mr. Adams, who was for-  nierly  lecturer on Botany and  Vegetable Materia Medica at Dublin, Ireland,    suggests  that no farmer runs  any risk by. devoting a small plot of  about an acre to drug culture as au  experiment i'or a few ye a*s.  But for  anybody to go headlong into the business as a speculation would    be unwise.  After dealing with soil, climate, cultivation, collection, drying, imports  and exports, and explaining the terms  used, Mr. Adams gives prominence,  with faithful illustrations in outline, to  the medicinal plants in demand.

The firm, convinced that its  employees were not giving their  best services, obtained permission  from, the government to send eight of  its men to France to see for themselves the conditions under which the  British army is fighting.

Part of the land is being cropped this year. By next year  it is expected there will be a considerable settlement in these districts, and  as ix result, of the war two hew towns  will spring up along the National  Transcontinental.  Reports from the camps show that  the prisoners of war are, on the  whole, weil satisfied with their conditions, and many of them have indicated their intention of taking upland-, in the neighborhood and remaining there as permanent settlers  after the war ceases.

In addition to the demand of back  to the land a protest has been raised  recently by economists against the  prevalence Of wheat' mining which  has long marked the three prairie  provinces. The fertile acres on both  sides of thj Peace, which are as yet  scarcely more than surveyed, can  fulfil the land demand of hundreds  of thousands of men and too, offer  a soil that is peculiarly adapted to  mixed farming, which the economists want, and which is the greatest  and most lasting form' of agriculture. ������������������' ��������� '  ��������� The district of the Peace, comprises a tract of forty millions of  arable land through which runs the  river of that name,^, stream as wide  as the Mississippi aiid navigable for  some six hundred miles.

And  unreaped, burned or rotting crops  and unsown fields mark the lands  at war; So that Canada, as never  before had open to her a collosal  market which will accept the produce from every tilled acre of her  soil.  With this fact In view the possibilities of the land of the Peace are  worthy of examination. For many  years wheat with as high au average  as fo^'ty-five bushels to the acre has  been grown in and around Fort Vermilion, some six hundred miles north  of the nearest railway- Statistics  given to the Alberta government in  the year 1008 showed that between  forty and forty-fiv^ thousand bushels of wheat had been delivered at  Fort Vermilion and there ground into  Hour. At this point the Hudson Bay  Company  have   for  the   past  twenty  produced some remarkable specimens, and of the : other a vegetables,  whatever have grown and matured,  have reached a degree of greater  perfection than in countries far to  the south.

If blizzards raged witn  all the fury of their northern  strength, strawberries or even wheat  would scarce obtain a chance to. grow,  but such is not the case- The average  mean temperature as compiled by the  Dominion government meteorlogical  offices at Bunv-egan and Fort Chip-  awyan is 53.4 degrees, which is easily  the equal of places situated far to the  southward.

The winters are shorter and while  the degrees on the thermometer may  register a few lower than in some  other places farther to the south,  warm Chinook winds from over the  Rockies temper the atmosphere wonderfully- Then, too, during the  growing season the hours of sunlight are truly remarkable.

Neither do these totals  include the wheat production of Turkey and Italy.  - The . falling off in production in  these countries on: account of the war  can only be estimated; but if it should  be placed at the moderate average of  25 per cent., it will result in a wheat  shortage for 1815 of over 40,000,000  bushels.  Throughout Canada a great effort is  being made to supply this shortage.  Canada could in herself easily supply  the entire shortage if enough labor  and equipment could be brought to  bear, but this is..manifestly impossible. According to a Dominion government report there are 320.173,195  acres of arable agricultural lands in  Canada not yet occupied, and of the  land occupied there are still 73,777,065  and how. could this be done if Britain kept ahead all the time? Orders  were given to the chief German spy  to secure plans of these new British  ships at all costs.  The German Secret Service or spy  system was the self-considered finest  in the "world.. Its cleverest agent was  set to work in London, and he managed to strike up an acquaintance  with a man employed at the Admiralty.  The smart spy was an adept at the  game, and employed all his art to  improve on his acquaintance, all the  time keeping his ulterior motives well  hidden. It seems that he led up to  the subject by speaking of the disappearance of A some other plans, and  suggested that the admiralty secrets  wrere too yell guarded to be spirited  away. The man from the admiralty  admitted that the secrets Were -well  guarded, but thought, he could get  theni if, he wanted to. "I know a  shipbuilding firm that would ' give  ci5>000 for those plans," the German  spy said. The other hesitated and  shook his head- "No-o," he said; "it  isn't worth while." The German offered ������7,000, ������S,000,������10,000, and finally ������12>000, but each time he was  refused. ;TH give you ������15,000," he  said at-last. "All right," said the  other; "if"you bring ������15,000 in Bank  of England notes roun*. to my rooms  I'll let you have the plans."  The German agent   paid  trouble in beating it- So they designed  a; vessel which was to be biggei*, faster,and A much more powerfully armed.  It was tb'have a speed of 25 knots, a,  displacement  of 15,550  tons,    and a  main   armament   of   twelve 9.2-inch  guns.    This :vessel   was    laid down.  She was presumed to be the mightiest  battleship in the -world.   As a matter  of fact,; she was A out of date before  her>keel was  completed!'   Still, the  Germans did not know    that.    They  w;ent on building,- and in due time the  ship  was launched.    She  was chris-  ���������tened Bluecher,    and cost $6,250,000.  This was the ship which was caught  on a baby-killing raid and was blasted from stern to stern and sent to the  bottom    of    the  sea    by   Sir A David  Beatty.      The    German     admiralty,  while  chuckling  to  itself  at  having  caught Great Britain napping, had a  terrible awakening.  They found that  they had been tricked. Their cleverest spies had been fooled in the simplest manner.    The British  admiralty  had been cognizant of what was going on all the time, and had deliberately engineered the deal. Those plans  upon which the Germans had set so  much store were false. The Bleucher  was doomed to destruction before she  was   built.     She   was   designed   five  years behind her time,  y Never has a power been outwitted  so A neatly!     When   the   dreadnought  was launched the Germans discovered that they were building a poor 25-  knot boat   to   beat   one of 28-knots.  the,   faster    ship    having    also    the  heavier  armament.    The  ships  that  Germany  is  turning  out  today    are  only the  .quals of those we built in  1811;    Since   then,  the  British  navy  has forged ahead in every way, gaining in-size-an d speed of ships, number    and    range ~o? guns, etc.    The  Germans looked to their spy system  for salvation.

This yield of wheat  from the north has never been figured in the crop statistics of either  or the provincial or of the Dominion  governments. The reason .for this Is  that it was grown, milled and consumed north of latitude 58, and therefore does pot figure in the supply of  wheat from Western Canada.  The reports  of the department of  agriculture   for  the   province   of  Al-  borta  during  15)13  show  an  amazing  array of llgures.    The following concrete   report    is    quoted   from    tho  crop  report    of    tho    Hon.  Duncan  'Mn.Hhnll, minister of agriculture for  the   province.

Those, however, who were too  poor to effect insurances of this description were perforce obliged to depend upon the money placed in the  boxes for the reception of 'God's  pence.'  "By the  end  of the  sixteenth century insurance companies had been instituted all over the country; vessels  were  insured  for  five  months  when  their voyages were to Flanders, Portu-1  gal and Norway;  for twelve months  when the ship sailed to the coasts of  Italy, the Azores. Peru, Brazil or tho  Indies,   and   notification   of  loso   was  received for the former until the end  of three months, whll_ six and even  as much as twelve months were permitted for the lr.tter. When these stipulated   times   had   elapsed  no   claim  could be admitted, under any circumstances.  "It is also interesting to reflect that  assurance policies wero paid in England despite the fuct that tho original  transaction had at llrst been settled  on the continent, and naturally what  was llrst settled in England could likewise he discharged upon the continent.

The new "anaesthetic, antisepeti3  bullet contains both naroctic and antiseptic drugs. There are enough of .the  former so that a wound even in a  vital part will cause little pain or  shock to the nervous system . And  while the iuicotica are bringing relief  to tho wounded man the antiseptic  preparations are cleusing the torn tissues and checking the flow ot blood.  The Humphrey bullet is exceedingly  simple in construction. It looka exactly like any bullet at flvBt glance,  bu'. a closer Inspection will reveal two  annular grooves pressed into its  rlckel jacket.  The grooves are where tho first aid  drugs are stored. The ono nearest the  tip is for the narcotics and tho other  for the antiseptics.  The drugs aro er-.ca_.3d in lay erg of  gelatine, and whon tho groovea are  filled a thin coating of paraffin Is  spread over the top.  The paraffin coating is melted by  the friction of the bullat in tho rifling  r'.' tho projecting weapon, and In Us  flight through tho air. so that tho  drugs are ready to begin their work  of healing as soon aa the mlBsllc finds  its mark.  The small amount of gelatfno which  Js uBed to hold the drugs in place is  entirely harraloss, and Is quickly ab-  eorbed by tho blood.
