Also the  season in which the flesh of any big  game may be retained in any person's possession is enlarged fjrom  two to six weeks after the close of  the season.

Grouse Shooting  Opens Sept. 15  Deputy Game Warden Callander  on Monday received a copy of the  neoessary order-in-eounoil respecting game regulations for 1915, and  we are indebted to him for a tabloid  statement of the open seasons for  this district.   Here they are:  Deer, of all kinds will be open  from September 1 till December 15.  Four deer may bs taken but not  more than throo of any one species,  all of which muist bo over one year  of ago. The sale of venison will bo  allowed from September 1 to  Ootober 15, tho meat to bo that of  bucks of oyer one year in ago.  Duoke may bo ahofc from Sept. 1  to January!31.

The killing of prairie ohioken is  illegal, although in the Fernie,  Cranbrook and some other districts  visited, and the return trip made  the .main line.  The excursion is a combination business and pleasure trip.

As this their first stop it is reasonable to suppose the party will spend  at least half-a day here to inspect some  of the orchards and gardens, learn  how the packing is done, and such  other details a6 may be of interest.  To enable them to see all there is to  see it will be necessary to arrange for  their transportation to all points in  the Valley and for such other entertainment features as their stay here  will permit. Committees will bo re.-  vuired to work out these details and  sfte to it that any programme arranged  is carried out.  As this visit is one mainly in the interest of the ranchers the Fruit Growers Union or Farmers Institute officials should bo in charge of arrangments to entertain the visitors backed  up by tho board of trade and citizens  generally. While October 2 is still five  weeks away its not a bit too early to  be discussing tentativepiognnimes for  the reception, so that wh������'n the itinerary of the visitors is definitely available no time way bo lost in completing  overy arrangement to ensure the reception features going through without a ulip.

Miss Ethel Huscroft,formerly at the  telephone central, left on Saturday for  Nelson to take a commercial course in  Kootenity business college.  Mish Munro, who taught i.iyi_ioii  III. of Creston school last term, is on  the .teaching staff of her hometown  school, Phoenix, this year.  E. G.

Tho  offer waa accepted'and an institution  with 1,040 beds has boon arranged for  at a point near tho front.

They are a  specially good apple to have, A being  good keepers and great favorites with  buyers.  Mr rLyne was emphatic in declaring  the Valley to be. specially adapted for  profitable pear culture. Nowhere in  the province, he assured The Review-  could better soil and climatic conditions be found for growing Bartletts,'  Flemish Beauty, Clapp's Favorite, etc.  The clay loam soil so noticeable here  was a prime essential for pear growing  while this same soil feature was also a  great factor in the production of  plums. *  Discussing the prevalanco of fruit  pests Mr.Lyne remarked that 1015 had  been a normal year with the possible  exception of aphis which was moro  noticeable this year than formerly.  After a visit over most of the province  ho estimated this year's crop as approximately 12 per cent, lighter than  101 _. The decrease in No. l's would  show a heavier falling off than this,  particularly in theNorfchern Okanagan  whoro scab was specially prevaldnt.  Mr Lyne has beon with this work  for oyer ton years and aesures The  Review that the develpoment in tho  Creston Valloy compares favorably  with any other part of tho province  and iu view of thu natural adaptability  of this section to a combination of  vegetable culture, fruit raising and  mixed farming our prosperity Is assured if strict attention is paid to all  the horticultural and agricultural  features so rich a heritage admits of,  will give you an outline of the-work  we do.  When we go in the trenches where  there is not much - doing there is a  hundred and orte odd jobs.  No.l���������Listening Post; some of us are  detailed to crawl out, and up close to  the German trenches where they lay  all night and watch the enemy work  until just before daybreak and then  crawl in; that's if the Germans doa't  get you.  No. 2���������Wiring Party; we. go out in .  front to fix our wire and when a light  light goes up we throw ourselves flat  on the ground until it dies out, and if  we happen to throw ourselves on the  barbed wire we have to lay there and  swear as gently as possible until we  See tuts iasi of che light.  No. 3���������Ration P������irty; we go out to  meet the quartermaster over trails  that the Germans snipers know aii  about, and when we get to this pre-  ���������uiruugeu pl.-i.e wv get the ration- arm  some good advice from the Q.M. from  this, pei-ft-.tly safe place in the rear.  There are many other parties but the  three X mentioned are the  most in-  We pass quite a lot of our time by  cooking when we are in, and sometimes^ the Kultured Germans start  throwing shells, and some fellows gets  so interested .in the bottom of the  trench that their ba.pon or whatever  they are cooking burns to a ������ind_r-  Bnt considering everything, and the  xihollo cnin&i*u    of/������    tiro u.-������a *-.*--_-.-*   *.

Some places we have been in we could  crawl out behind the trenches and get  a few cherries if a fellow wanted to  take a chance, and I am quite fond of  fruit.    '"'.;"'"'  In a little place I am sitting now, I  can look out and see three houses that  were  once in a beautiful place, and  had been fine big brick places such as  you see in the largest towns  in Canada.   There  is nothing left of  them  now but one brick wall of one. tho stone door sill of another, and a bunch  of-.shade trees around a pile  of bricks  in the last one.     I   huve   seen   largo  towns in tho same condition as these  houses.  Shrapnel has started to burst  right ovor us and some of the bullets  came right  down at our feet.    They  might be  good souvenirs if we  had  thorn in   Canada.    We  sec  a good  many of them overy day.  The German shells do some good for  we would have to go without a wash  for a few days if it wasn't for the Jack  JohiiRon hole about twenty feetTfway  from us.  You need not worry about me for  the Germans have not. made the bullet  with my name on it, and I would not  be any whoro else but here if I had my  choice oven now.

Canada's Shell Production  approached the government with a  proposition to the effect that they  would furnish a gasoline road motor  and a man to drive it if the government would supply a weed inspector  to travel on this road motor along  their lines to look out for noxious  weeds.  Noxious weed seeds aro very frequently carried in cars from one  point to another aud dropped about  stations aud in front ot* elevators,  and from these points of vantage  they spread to the surrounding districts.  The railway company further assured the government that every section foreman and his gang would be  at the disposal of the weed inspector,  not ouiy for the destruction of tu_  weeds found on each trip, but also  under his direction would keep a  sharper lookout for a recurrence of  these weeds auywhers along the  company's lines of rail.  The work has been going forward  for some time, with splendid results,  and the department of agriculture and  particularly Chief Weed Commissioner Thompson, are very enthusiastic  about this method of .getting after the  weeds. Quite a number of small  patches of sow thistle, for example,  have been found in stations when  none can be located in any- of the  fields near the station, aud by destrue-  day.  ���������TT  nPI___   C-l-%_-_������-_-,s_'_*9__   ������].<r_���������_-_*_   there were somo 'by whom, whether  ISat.    >SliIFHfc5F Q   J? t%VC   through    dullness or indifference, the  Lord   Rosebery  on  Bitter  Account  of  Days to Come  call of patriotism has been so far dis  regarded and privatp interest held of  greater moment than tbe public weal."

The "call of patriotism"  to be many young men in this country who view the struggle of the nation without seeing its relationship to  themselves.

They ar_  thoroughly organized into a great manufacturing unit, in which each plant  produces its specialty, and depends  on other apparatus elsewhere, in the  way that one department depends on  another in a large factory. The shell  committee, comprising expert managing engineers and military men, assembled the means and now run the  production of munitions.  "The thing has been done so quietly," says the American Machinist,  '"that but few have the least idea of  its magnitude- We have looked upon  the United States as being the home  of the excessively large industrial undertaking, and the place where great  schemes are carried out so rapidiy  that the procass resembles-sleight of  han^J.

Tliere is a great tendency where the  use of fertilizers is begun tp continue  their use year after year "on the same  land without adopting other means  of maintaining productiveness.. A.  man finds that fertilizer will bring a  good return and he will keep using  it year after year without crop rotation, growing one grain crop after another. Such a use of fertilizers is  disastrous if continued, because under *  such a system the humus is rapidly  exhausted in the soil, with the result  that the soil becomes compact, loses  its friable condition,, and the yields  decrease in spite of the, fertilizer.  Fertilizers alone will not maintain  soil fertility. They should be used  rather as an adjunct to the %best systems of maintaining fertility than can  be practised. Used in this way thera  will be no injury.to the soil, and if  intelligently applied there will be very  good profits.      ~~  The only man -*ho can afford to  use fertilizers on grain crops year after year on the same land is the rent-  .er or temporary farmer who cares  nothing for the future of the soil. To  be sure, it requires a number of years  of such continued use before, the effects become **_-parent, and it may be  justifiable for a man who is just beginning, and who must meet his payments on the land, to practice such a  system for a few years, but it should  not be continued long. The only proper use of commercial fertilizers is in  connection with the best system of  crop rotation, of legume growing and  of humus building that a man can  practice.  _>r_in /-imputation  BABY'S GREAT DANGER  DURING HOT WEATHER  Canadian Made Goods  ��������� ***********,  Granulated Eyditte,  Kyr*  inflauitd by expo.  ������ui- to Sun, UwsUnd WluiS  Valve iirj'ubei l sc.

German eft'iciency, and finds it worthless except in a very limited extent.  He denounces the German system of  education, and says that the people  ������������ Germany are ignorant of political  freedom' as Anglo-Saxon countries  kBOW it. He reviews the great discoveries and inventions of the past hundred years, and "finds that Germany  has contributed little toward them.  She has produced no Darwin, no Pasteur, no Cavour. She has not created  much more th^in the Japanese, but like  the Japanese, she has proved to have  marvellous gifts as an adapter of  great ideas born in other countries-  With the opinion of a noted German  statesman that the Germans are "political asses" he heartily agrees. It  was their ignorance upon this point  that explains the numerous mistakes  they made when calculating upon^the  effect of the war upon Great Br_Kiin.  Nor. is it the ignorance of the German  masses he considers but the ignorance  of their leaders. They had all the facts  before them, but they could not make  the deductions. They did not know  how free people value the sanctity of  a contract. "Nothing could be franker," he writes, "than the original explanation which the German chancellor gave of the breaking of treaties  concerning the neutrality of Belgium;  but his frankness is evidence that he  did not understand in the least the  freeman's idea of the sanctity of contract���������the foundation of all public  law and Hsa**-e in a free country. **_. a  country despotically or aristocratically ruled thero is no such condition of,  public opinion."  As regards German  T7*!!/}������ writes!*  "It is an efficiency which takes hold  of every child in   Germany at birth  and   follows   every  youth  and  every i English, and we remember in that con-  man  and   woman  through   life   until j nection -with satisfaction that many of  us are of English extraction." He says  is not made by the child, but for him.  German efficiency, however, is a very  real and formidable thing in all the  competitions of the civilized world;  so that the most interesting' thing to  be studied as to the probable outcome  of the European war in this���������is Germany with its autocracy mora efficient  or less efficient than J. ranee and England with their liberties?

He denies .that this wonderful efficiency-hasv produced anything to compare with' what has been produced in  liberty-loving nations. Efficiency has  produced an efficient Germany. It has  produced nothing for the world at  large. He finds that Britain, the  United Stat.s, Franc-d and Italy have  produced nearly all of the great ideas  and the great inventions in the past  hundred years. In fact, Germany did"  not invent much more than Turkey-  He considers it to be a remarkable  fact that systematic education of the  whole people has been carried on for  one hundred years in Germany, while  the free nations have been withou.  this system. Nevertheless, despite  this system, Germany is a political ignoramus. He believes that the reason  is that the German system has not  enough freedom in it. The German  educational system and all German efficiency might be likened to the complete apparatus of the telegraph, lacking only the electric current.  A few days ago Dr. Eliot expressed  the opinion that prayers for peace  would not be answered, and that those  outside of Germany who uttered then-  were traitors to the great ideals for  which the allies are fighting. In his  book he says that he does not believe  there will be any peace until Germany  is utterly smashed. "One cannot-con-  cirive of Germany admitting her defeat  until she has exhausted her supplies  efficiency Dr.J. of men, money and food," he says. He  goes on to say, "Fortunately from our  point of view there is no more resolute  or dogged people in the world than the  m 0 H������  *r_.a  ������_v__ -  Bfflf BS S  ww a i _���������  Superstition   Pervades  All .the   European Armies  The tale of the tri-coior star has i  not only gone, the rounds of France,  but has crossad the frontiers and been  spread among the barbarians, according to testimony I have, just received  from a person interned in Germany  for *. while but now set at liberty.  This witness, who' belongs to the  civil population of a locality invaded by  the Teuton-hordes, has just told me  that a German major confided to him  that he no longer expected victory for  the kaiser's armies after seeing in the  sky a star with the colors of the  F. ench flag, whereas in 1870 a sword  was seen, and he added that this was  not an optical illusion,, as others besides himself had seen the same  thing!

The announcement of the eclipsa of  the sun, which took place on August  21, aroused lively apprehension among  the Russian peasants inhabiting the  zone of totality, who already at the  beginning of July considered, this astronomical phenomenon as a sign of  war.  On the other hand, at the moment  when the allies were saving Paris  from the defilement which the troops  of Von Kluck threatened to bring ;up-  on it in the early part of September,  a pretty comet shone in the heavens  at ,n;ght, every evening more beautiful  and more brilliant. At once the populace, whose attention it attracted, associated it with the battles and it received the name of the_,"war comet!"  Nevertheless this; ethereal voyager already had wandered in our skies for  a year, having been discovered on December 17, 1913, by the astronomer  Delavan^at the observatory of La  Plata.

"It looks as if it will be a long war,  but the longer it lasts the stronger  will be the power of the allies. We  must simply set ourselves to wear out  the Germans. To do that we have only  to press steadily and quietly forward  on our road. ���������  "We have not got to take cities and  execute wonderful marches. All we  have to do is to go on with our absolute and unquestionable duty of  thinning the enemy. We must stay  long: we must sap him; we must  weaken him at every point; we must  destroy him by inches. After that  we can enter his country and do what  we like  with it.  "A great tiling for men to convince  themselves of is that this war will  be won not by fury of attack and not  by gallantry, but simply by hanging  on. He who hangs on longest will  win, and a man need not think very  profoundly to assure himself that,  whereas we can hang on almost indefinitely, the Germans cannot.

Tho Germans have established a submarine  base and factory on the Bosphorous  near Constantinople, and aro turning  them out there in tho same manner  as they have boon doing at Zecbruggj,  in the North Sea. Tho parts for tho  submarines aro manufactured in Germany and Hont by rail to Constantinople, through Austria, Houmania and  Bulgaria. The h.st two countries nro  nuppo_cd 'to bo neutral, but many  things can bo accomplished for a  price, and tho Germans havo had no  difficulty in getting tho big packing  casoH containing tha sections of tho  fliibmarinofl through, Naturally, tho  allien had to with draw their ball In-  HhipR from tho Dardanelles when tho  submarines arrived on tho scene."

Dominion Government is to Appoint a  Commission  A royal commission is to be appointed by the government to investigate  the question of increased agricultural  production in the Dominion, together  with rue related questions of wider  markets, further employment for th.  unemployod, etc. The commission,  which is to bo appointed at the recommendation of the prime minister, and  in response to a request made by the  Congress of Mayors which visited the  capital some wcehs ago, will bo auth-  orl_cd to employ such scientilic and  professional assistance as its members may determine.

A minute of council has been issued  outlining the reasons for the appointment of the commission and the questions which it in to consider. In connection with opportunities for increased agricultural production, lho  following considerations aro advanced:  (1) Improved methods of production with a view to a better return to  tho producer; (2) assisting this purpose by proper instruction and demonstration; (il). increasing the aero-  age under production; (.) attracting  monstratlon of a typo which would aid  in increasing a largo and permanent  agricultural population; (3) -UnniluL-  ing and encouraging co-operation  among tlio producer; (G) providing  cold storago and abattoir facilities.

How to Intersst Pupils in the Care of  the Gardens  Many teachers find it very bard to  have the work carried oriV in the  school garden during the holidays.  When they arrive back at their school  in September the lot is usually a mass  of weeds. The Agricultural Gazette,  in offering some suggestions, states:  "All work should be done in due  season, so that at vacation time the  plants will be well advanced, entirel**  free from weeds, thinned out when  necessary and properly cultivated.  An interest may thus be created that,  if only directed wisely, will remain in  the minds of most pupils, who will  solve the 'weed problem' -during vacation .  "Many children regularly VI_.it their  plots during the vacation and keep  them in condition. Some are driven  by their parents, who also become  interested, and at thoir regular visits  to the village store or postoffice, make  trips to the school plots as well.  "Trustees of many schools meet on  Saturday afternoons and round up  the village children to accompany  them to the school grounds and perform tho necessary weeding, etc.  Tlio children's plots (of many of  these schools), furnish sufficient flowers for tho Sunday servicps throughout the summer.  "A janitor of a village school, who  Is generally hired by tho yoar and  employs hio tlmo during vacation in  cleaning and ropniring tho school,  should be interested In the grounds  as well and act as a leader of tho  children. In somo schools committees aro appointed for each week of  tho vacation, nnd each committee In  turn is held responsible. This plan  works well in town schools, where  many children go camping for part of  the time."  Veiled Women of Turkey See  Their Freedom Ahead  When the allied fleets began bombarding the'forts of the Dardanelles  the sad-eyed, silent women of Turkey  smiled behind their veils;���������for they  saw liberty ahead.  To the hidden women of the harem  the overthrow of the country will  mean to a great extent freedom from  customs, centuries old, that have  made slaves of them.  They hope that the degrading life  of the harems will be done away with  ���������that the;- will be allowed to become  something more than the playthings  of men and the bearers of children.  Since 190S a sullen spirit of rebellion has been growing stronger than  .ever before among 'Jurkish women  'Protests that in these modern times  theyshould have to submit to such degradation have been whispered in the  closely-guarded women's quarters of  thousands  of  Turkish   homes.  For a while after the downfall of  V..2 old sultan, Abdul Hamid, their  hopes ran high, for then they were  allowed to discard their veils and go  out in the streets with their husbands  and brothers.  This good fortune lasted but a short  time, then the constitution was revised, and although a disputation of women waited on tho ministers of the  capital, the latter would not give official sanction to their discarding the  veil.  Since then a little progress has  been made, but the majority are still  slaves. In some cases the bars arc  gilded, but neverthelss they are prisoners.  Until the timo she Is 12 years old a  Turkish girl enjoys much the same  freedom ub her llttlo sisters the world  over. She can romp and play and go  to parties, but on hor 12th birthday she becomes a woman, don��������� a veil  and from then on is a prlosnor of tho  harem.  She must spend her time in clo_ely-  gtiarded rooms, smoking, reading,  drinking coffee and gossiping.  Here aro somo of tho things sho  cannot do:  Go out of doors unless heavily veiled  and guarded by male slaves of her  father or husband.  Go to tho theatre or restaurants.  Sco tho man picked to bo her husband until after sho is married to  hiin.  Play outdoor games or indulge in  outdoor exercise of any kind. ���������  Write or receive lottors without her  husband seeing them.  Use fur or any other kind of trimming on street garments.  Lock the doors ot her own room.  She is n?ver- safe from the prvlcg  eyes of male salves.  While-Turkish girls are usually  _sade to marry after they are 12 years  old, some are forced into marriage at  an. earlier age.

In the introduction it is  stated that cut-worms as a class rank  in importance with such well-known  pests as the San Jose Scale, the Codling Moth and the Hessian Fiy, ail or  which are among our most destructive  insect enemies.    There are certainly  few insects whicli, year after year, inflict such widespread damage as tho  various caterpillars, known commonly  as  cut-worms.    The annual loss    occasioned by  these insects in Canada  arnovuit- to hundreds of thousands ot  dollars.    In the bulletin the methods,  of controlling cut-worms  are discuf*.  sed  fully.    Under "Preventive Measures" the value of clean cultivation is  referred to, as well aa the placing of  bands of tin or paper around' plants  which are set out.    "Remedial Meas-  surcs" include descriptions of various  poisoned  baits  to    destroy  the  cutworms,    directions for tho making of  proper furrows or ditches to prevent  the advance of armies or cut-worms,  etc.    Fifteen  common    kinds of cutworms are described iti popular detail  and much information glv.en on tho  habits and life-history of tho various  specie-.

CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, AUG. 20  l*_r_.������-  The appended article dealing  with the pamphlet "The Crisis in  B.C.," should make interesting  reading for all our citizens. It is  from Toronto Saturday Night,  without doubt Canada's foremost  independent, weekly���������a paper with  a reputation for telling the truth,  the whole truth and nothiug but  the truth, aeoording to its  Here's what it says:  The amazing corruption of British  Colutbia's public men, whose acts are  slowly but surely strangling to death  that magnificent province, are briefly  told in a pamphlet which has just been  issued, entitled "The Crisis in B.C.  An Appeal for Investigation." The j  do_a__._rst has been prepared by an  expert, a .trained accountant aad statistician, under the supervision of a  committee of citizens, all members of  the Ministerial Union of the Lower  Mainland. As pointed out*, the facts  set forth are in no sense published iu a  partisan spirit, nor to serve the pin-  poses of any political party. However public matters have reached -such  a state in British Coumbia.'that these  gentlemen, as citizens, feel that tb. re  must be a remedy sought, aud it is  hoped that the uncovering of tiie wh< >!e  wretched history of looting and corruption will bring about at least a  partial cure.  *The fact is that parcticaiiy aj! of  British Columbia's natural wealth, ber  tiruber, her coal fields, her farm lands,  have, through connivance of public officials, been alienated to syndicates;  with headquarters in nearly every  capital in Europe and the large cities  of the United States. Further than  that, there has been falsification of  publit accounts; false statements by  public officials, members of the government���������in an encSeaver to cover up thier  crooked trails. With the connivance  of Ministers nf thy Crown, the  land laws of the Province have been  subverted in order, that these land  speculators could get away with their  booty. As the Land Act originally  stood, the sale of more than 64*0 aci-es  of Crown lands to any one person uu-  til the first purchase had been cultivated or smpx-ov. d to the extent of $3  per acre, was illegal. This was inconvenient for the would-be land grabber,  so in 1007 the McBride Government introduced an amendment whereby one  -man could stake tens of thousands of  acres in the names of others who had  never seen it, and who quite possibly  were never in that Province in thier  ' lives. This is the secret of having  nearly all of what, under an honest  administration, would have been land  available for the settler, now in the  hands of syndicates located in Berlin,  London, Paris, New York, Portland,  Spokane, San Francisco. The records  or the land offices in British Columbia  are filled with "dummy" names, ho  that it is next to impossible to identify  the real owners.  The exploitation of coal binds has  been on a par with that of the farm  lands already described. In what is  known as the "Groundhog District,"  which contains the best coal in . the  Province, six firms or syndicates have  grabbed off 321,000 acres. Of course  the properties are not being worked by  fche present owners. The land was  obtained from the Government for a  song in order that it might be turned  over at a huge profit later on.  In regard to timber it is the same  ��������� story. The report goes on to state that  eighty per cent, or more than 11,250,-  000 acres, of the finest timber in the  Province has been alienated from tho  Crown, leaving the Government:-!,750,-  000 acres of the dregs. Theni* timber  licenses are held by trusts, syndicates  and other exploiters in thit United  States and elsewhere- Copies of doeu-  inciiti- are given in the puuiphlet,  showing' that Governieiiit official-  were sharing in the plunder on the  sale of timber limits, and further, there  is evidence of false returns in respect  to the sale of limits in order I hut the  Government might not present such a  ���������������������������orry appearance before the electorate.  The latter pari of the pamphlet in  taken up with tho details of a deliberate suppression of facts in  roNpeet to  the finances of tho   Province, after  which the railway situation is gone  into iu detail.     It is shown that on  three railways alone the Province of  British Columbia is down for a, guarn-  tec uu Ui principal and interest to the  tune of nearly a hundred million dol-  lurs,  or any  $250 por head of population,  and  Ut quote, the    p-imphfct:  ���������'Nothing in   more   morally   certain  ihuu the people oi' thin  Province   will  have to pay the intereul on  this huge  iudcbtedneHH, as ii. has ulwayH had  to  do in other cases for the  past twelve  ���������year*;."  Ah an example of mud id  politico it  would he haro  to find  a parallel  for  that of British Colon bin.    l-voiy unset  the people owned and the Government  could lay hiindxnn lias beendnliauched  ������������������rid MtnJen and .'.qc.-imh ������i-<l.

If ever a country needed a new  birth politically it is Canada's beauti-  Paciflc Province. Its natural resources far exceed those of any other section of Canada, but it has been debauched, violated and defiled beyond  the limit of endurance, and if it is to  "come back" there must be a new  deck and a new deal.  Coming from such a source the  article can hardly fail to arouse  thinking Conservative leaders to  the fact that an unprejudiced public is inclined to take some stock in  "'The Crisis," and that unless the  charges therein contained are  refuted in the same slashing fashion in which they are made something similar to what happened in  Manitoba may overtake the McBride government oil its not-distant  appeal to the people.  Recently Attorney-General Bowser spoke in Vancouver in reply to  "The Crisis." According even to  the more moderate Conservative  dailies he put up a very able  defense of the government's connection with the 'deals' and other  matters contained in the parsons'  pamphlet.  A few thousand copies of his  speech, with such other information as may be necessary to fully  explain all the alleg.nl wrongdoing  would help some. Without something of the sort Conservatives are  badly handicapped in any discussion of this widely-circulated leaflet.  ,&8tlbr 'Darhr&  W  ':���������(  ������._y   .:_> ,-  ,||>OII  lilt'  ,,,-    ..... ������,      1 *  While it were idle to attempt to  minimize the moral value of the  successes ehe Germans are gaining  in Russia at the present time, if  their losses in men are anywhere  near in proportion to those suffered  by the other nations, who are fighting more or less on the defensive, it  is possible the cost of victory may  be so great that defeats such as  Russia is experiencing, may be  almost preferable.  According to the British casualty  lists in fourteen weeks, April, May,  June and part of July, on a 40-mile  front there was a loss of 182,512  men, or 13,000 a week. In the  eastern theatre of the war the Germans have been operating: on a 900-  mile front with five distincTa. mies.  They have been attacking all the  time. For the sake of argument  the five armies may each be apportioned a front of 100 miles which  leaves about 400 miles of the eastern front on which it may not ho  possible to deploy troops. Supposing the Germans on a 500-mile  front only lost 10,000 men a week  to each 40 miles instead of 13,000  as the British did, they would have  been losing men at the rate of  120,000 men a wook since iho beginning of May, or in tlio last fifteen weeks they would have lest on  the eastern front alone no less than  1,800,000 mon without gaining  their main objective.  If such figures aro nt all correct  no wonder the A'.lies are content to  wait while the Germans exhaust  their resources in driving back the  Russians.- The further tho latter  aro driven back at such a colossal  cost tho hotter it is for tlio Allies.  Tho Gentians can not replace these  men while if Russia loses a like  number she can roplaoo them with  ease.

"'So easily?" she mocked.  ".Madam, if you love life and honor  I pray ycu hear me. It is not of myself I think, but of you. You are in  grave peril." returned I with the utmost seriousness.  -What peril?"'  Tliere was a note of alarm in her  voice in spile of her effort to be indif-  ferei-.- 1 seized upon its promise eagerly  -The men of the ship���������they are uot  what they should be.

The men are devoted to  ��������� me and���������"  "For God's sake, Mistress l>uey,"  I cried, but this time she was gone.  1 heard the door of her cabin shut  violently- There was no help for it.  Well, I must devise some way unaided, for I must get out for her sake. The  cabin was lighted by an air port closed  by a deadeye. I measured it, drawback the thick glass and examined the  opening, although I knew it was a fu-  iiie proposition. A slender boy might  have slipped through, but not a man  such as I. My mighty thews and sinews and great bulk required a door,  anu no small one either.  -The wind had ceased blowing hard  outside, and some spray came in  through the port as the waves slapped  the side of the ship. I closed and secured it. There was nothing to be gain-  - ed there. I must seek some other way.  I was not weaponless. Nobody had  thought to search the cabin, and a  brace of pistols which I always kept  loaded and ready for an emergency  were locked securely in my chest.  My hanger hung at the side of my  berth. The door was a strong one. It  was locked and barred without. 1  might have broken it down; I could  have done so if I had had space  enough in which to run and hurl myself against it. I^might even have  kicked it to pieces with my heavy seaman's boots. Certainly I could easily  have blown the lock oft with my pistol, but any of these endeavors would  have roused the ship-  I had one other hope. It Captain  Matthews should come to the cabin I  would appeal to him For the rest I  determined not to sleep that night.  Some strange foreboding possessed  me.  We were near the latitude and longitude of the island we were seeking.  If, indeed, there wore such an island  as was thought to be, and it wouJd  be a good time for an outbreak, especially since I was removed. Would :t  come that night? Would it come nt  all?   Was 1 mistaken in the men?  I have often wondered why women  wore made, and since they wore mado.  why men should he such fools about  them. Here I was helpless just because I had snatched a kiss from one.  And now that I nni in the mood for  confession, I might as well say that I  fully rejoiced in flint klfis-  Well, whatever happened, I had tlio  memory of that. kiss. She would never  forgive mo.

There did not seem  to      be  any  especial   danger  in  tho  weather, and for that I was thankful.  I must have dozed. I was awakened  by  the  last echoing of the bell forward.   I didn't know what time it was,  because I didn't know whether I had  heard it begin to strike, but I could  { count three couples, which meant that  j it was  11  o'clock at least..  I  didn't  i know,   of  course,  that  it   was   eight  j bells, midnight, until the voice of the  ! boatswain   came   to  me   through  the  i bulkhead   that   separated     the   cabin  from the quarterdeck:  "A���������a���������all the port watch!"  I could hear the men below grumbling and cursing as they turned out.  They had evidently been sent below  to  the  hammocks  after the  topsails  had been reefed for a couple of hours  ii..    I eouid hear scraps of conversation.  ".NTow!"  ���������Kill him!"  "This is the best time!"  "The old man's alone!"  What I heard niied me with dismay.  I picked up the pistol and pointed it  at the lock in the door���������1 had made  my mind, come what might, to blow  oft live lock and get free. Before I  could press the trigger I heard a call  on the deck above me. a shot, a rush  of feet, a scuffle, a _;roan, a fall!  "With you!" said I, loosening my  hold on the pistol, but taking good  care to keep ready. "I am with you,  all right. What do you propose? I  am sick of the treatment M received,  and���������"  "We want that treasure for ourselves."  (To be Continued)  CHAPTER VII-  Wherein I Bargain For a Woman  What had happened I could well  guess. Captain Matthews had been  attacked. He had promptly shot one  of ihe mutineers and thereafter the  rest had got him. My first impulse  was to blow open the lock of the door  and rush to his rescue, but wiser counsel prevailed, and I did nothings. I  am, I think, somewhat cool headed in  a crisis, and surely this was one. I  could wait. A loaded pistol was better than an empty one, and to deal  with me they would have to come to  me for whatever purpose they might  entertain, either to murder me or to  release me. In either event -I could  do more than if I rushed into the fray  now. I could not help Captain Matthews. I was sure that whatever fell  nun^os������ t_.s,,r mi^ht entertain .for __v  little mistress would be in abeyance  until they had settled with me.  I listened with every nerve strained  to the utmost. I also waited most anxiously for the opening of the after  cabin door, which was-her own, but  she must have been in a sound sleep,  indeed, for the door did not open. Evidently she had heard nothing. I waited. It w-as not an easy task, but I  judged it best.  Fortunately, I had not long to Avait,  for in less time by far than I have  taken to tell it the hatch was opened  and the heavy booted men clattered  down the companionway. The key was  in the lock outside, and I could hear  them turn it- I loosened my sword,  which I had slung by its belt around  my waist, picked up the two pistols,  sent my back up against the side of  the ship and made ready for whatever  came.  The door was pushed open abruptly  and I saw the cabin was crowded with  ���������men. At least half the crsw were  gathered there, anu it was a little  cabin, the Rose of Devon, being but a  small ship. Tha rest, I guessed, were  on watch. I could not see the boatswain. Evidently he had the deck.  The vessel couldn't be left unwatched  on such a night as this and in such  a sea, and he was the Attest man to  take charge of her. The steward had  lighted the cabin lights, several of the  men carried lanterns which they had  brought from the forepeak, and others  had drawn their sheath knives- There  was plenty of illumination to show  their villainous faces.  They were surprised to find me so  prepared, and I gave them no time to  recover.  "The first man," I hissed out, "that  steps across that threshold without  permission gets a bullet through  him!"  "We mean you no harm, sir," spoko  out ono who seemed to be a ringleader, a man rated as boatswain's  mate, who~o name was Glibby.  "What are you doing hero?" I asked, "in th _ cabin at this time of  night?"  "Softly, softly, sir." replied Glibby;  "wc are hero to ask questions, not to  answer 'om."  "What do you moan?" I cried.  "We are masters of tho s.ilp."  "Captain Matthews?"  "lie will captain no moro ships on  tlili. or any other sous," answered  GUbby, with truculent oniphusis.  Now, It rose in my mind to shoot  him then and thoro, nnudo.oUH brute  that ho was. If T had been alone perhaps I would havo dono it without  reckoning tho consequences to myself,  but I had another to think of. Unless  craft; ntnorl mo in good stood her case  was hopeless.

"What did  A Wise Banker  North   Dakota   Banker   Who   Jieiped  Boys to Learn Something of Pure  Bred  Stock  in Ward county, North Dakota, is a  banker who has shown true philanthropy and wisdom. He bought a carload of pure bred gilts and distributed  theni among the boys in the county  who promised to care for them according to the advice of County Agent  W. A. Peek. In the fall the boys  could buy the sows at their actual  cost, or thev were to give the sows  back to the* banker, hut they could  keep the increase. Some of the boys  bought their sows and those wko did  did not had the pigs as their own.  The banker bred such sows as were  returned to hint and again put them  out with boys in the county.  In this way tiie boys learned how to  handle pure bred stock, and were  shown the superiority of blood and  proper care. They cams in personal,  touch with the county agent who was  able to teach them much more than  pig feeding. They got a substantial  reward for their work, and a start that  will mean much in the "future.  The banker did a most excellent  thing for the boys and for the county. The boys are the future farmers  ���������and will have money to deposit in  his bank, we hope.

During the month of  April, this year, there was a further  decrease of 14,574 persons. Of these  13,131 were males and 1,443 females-  Of course, says the Tageblatt, this decrease can really be attributed to the  fact that so many of Berlin's citizens  are at the front.  There also has been considerable  decrease in traffic. Figures just prepared show that in April,. this year,  the street railways carried 47,642,723  passengers, which i3 five millions and  a half less than in April, 1914. The  elevated and underground roads carried 6,234,750 passengers, being a decrease of 1,600,000 compared with the  same period in the previous year. Tax-  icabs and other vehicles carried 1,-  663,586 persons, being a decrease of  nearly five millions.  If Holland Entered  Germany is undoubtedly very vulnerable on her Holland frontier. Were  Holland to be goaded into belligerency  by German attacks on her merchant  ships or by other infringements upon  her rights, it would be unfortunate for  the enemy. Not only would German  territory thereby bo at once thrown  open to invasion by Dutch, British and  French troops, but also the Scandinavian countries would be almost cortain  to follow in the wake of Holland's action. Denmark, Norway and Sweden  would not find it to their advantage to  remain neutral when all their neis.v  bors were at war. They would join in  the wolf hunt. Their striking force  would be no small one, but much more  telling upon tho enemy would bo tho  ending of their commercial rolations  with him.���������Toronto Mail and Empire.

"I used to when I slopt in a folding  bed, though."  To Disperse Poison Gas  Invention     Will    Force    the    Deadly  Chlorine Over the Heads of Men  at Front  Sir Hiram Maxim has completed an  Invention which is a reply to the German poison gas methods of warfare.  Exhaustive tests have been made in  trenches under conditions as nearly  as possible to those in Flanders, aud  it is understood tha*. the war office is  \-_t-.T    _������_.*-._ hlir   imnroccii/l    ������������'U"l-i   tha   5*i-  vontion.  Sir Hirani Maxim says that the poisonous fumes are chlorine gas. "Chlorine gas," he says, "when in pure state  at one atmospheric pressure weighs  two and one-half times as much as  air. In escaping from high pressure  to atmospheric pressure the chlorine  necessarily rises, mixed with a lot of  air, and by the time it is twenty feet  away from the discharge pipe the  ratio is five volumes of air to one of  chlorine.  "The specific gravity is correspondingly reduced, and by the time the  fumes reach our trenches there is one  hundred times as much air as gas-  We know that to be approximately  true, because if a soldier breathed a  chlorine mixture of one in twenty he  would not live more than a few minutes. Scientific men have tried to  neutralize the effects of the gas by  respirators, "but you might just as  well think of filtering alcohol out of  water with a piece of wire gauze as  try to separate chlorine from the -'.t-  mosphere by such a device."  Sir Hiram called "these gauze  things" "aspsrators"���������short for "exas-  perators." That sums up his estimate  of their utility.  It is not permissible to give away  Sir Hiram's secret, but it is said that  the invention will force the poisonous  fumes over the heads of men in the  trenches.  "I do not think that the British," he  said, "should descend to the use of  poisonous gases, and I am convinced  that the enemy will not continue their  use once he finds how easily and how*  cheaply the fumes may be dispersed.  "Another device I am engaged upon  relates to the defence of our trenches  against the bayonet. It is upoa a wholly new principle, but I am not at liberty to describe it. In fact," Sir Hiram continued, "I have my pocket full  of new inventions. At the age of  seventy-five my day is one of seventeen hours and I want to give that  time to serving the country."  Some.

Here are some of the  hints which might well be pasted ia  the hat of every driver: .,  Don't overload the wagon.  Don't speed your horse.  Use well fitting; light weight harness, loose fitting collars and opec  bridles.  -.. On long haulis allows periods of rest ~  in the shade. '  At the first sign of exhaustion sto_  and bathe the animals.bead'and:neck  ! with cold water. (Here directions are  giveii for -.'treating sunstroke).  Allow a liberal quantity of clean  water to drink, provided the horse is  worked or-exercised immediately after  drinking.  . Carry a pail and sponge to frequently wash or swab the animal's nose,  mouth and face.  Give a warm bran mash on Wednesday nights in addition to the one given  on Saturday nights.  Avoid .'all grades whenever possible.  "Relieve harness -pressure from  sores.  Remove collar and shoulder 'pads  froto harness every night, wash pressure surface with warm water, an&  soap and hang out in the sun to dry  before putting them on the animal.  Supply two sets of pads for use on alternate days. If this is done sore conditions will be. entirely prevented.  Peed properly, study the individual  horse and determine just how much  nourishment is required to keep it in  serviceable condition and health.  Don't underfeed or save on bedding,  blankets, shoeing, or employ incompet-  ent^help in order to save money.  __on:t practice a false economy,  which invariably results in weak,  lame, sore or enfeebled animals.  Plenty of light, fresh air, good food,  pure water and proper housing are as  necessary to the. horse as they are to  the human being-  The Sultan���������1 wunt to speak to  you about the light of tho harem.

One of the best dog stories-of the  war, and with the .additional merit of  being absolutely true, is told us by  Mrs. Armar Corry, who. personally met  the hero thereof at the" American hospital at Neuilly. This dog, named  Fend l'Air, belonged to an Algerian  soldier called to the colors. He managed to get on board his master's  ship and landed at Marseilles with  him; crossed France to Belgium, .c-  companied him in the great retreat  and also in the victory of the Marne,  and shared with his soldier owner  the life in the trenches. One night the  trench was blown up by a" shell, and'  the man was buried, wounded, in a  mass of earth. Fend l'Air scented out  the exact place where his master lay,  started digging, and at last got his  head clear, and then barked continually until he summoned some stretcher-  bearers. These dug tho wounded man  out of the earth, and he was taken  eventually to Neuilly, where the  American hospital relaxed the rules  so as to admit the dog as-woll as his  master. And the man is now recovering and owes his life directly to the  faithfulnes- of Fend l'Air.���������Field and  Fancy.

The manure: produced to-be-returned to the farm.  The cattle were bought at South  St. Paul,. Nov. 5, 19.14. They, were not  of "extra grade, costing $5.85 per  cwt.,  and  averaging    775  pounds,  or  _ _ er 00   -**...,   i.-.r-���������-    - rnt. ���������   '_ *.    _ o   i..-.. s._-_  <p������t)..i������U.   .CI    UBitU..      ill.     .1101   ut    uujuig  and shipping but was a few cents  more than $2 per head, and the cost  Of shipping back. and selling a little  less than $3, making the total expense out. and back under $5. They  were shipped back to South St. Paul  and sold May 31, 1915.  Twenty-six head ������f_J.he best finished of theitwo cars,- averaging .1,05.4  pounds, sold for $8.35, which was the  highest price paid that day, and 22  head, averaging 1,067 pounds, brought  $7.65. This made an average of ,8c  per pound and an average weight of  approximately 1,060 pounds, or $85  per head.  One car of these cattle was fed on  the farm at Aberdeen, South Dakota,  and the other at Grand Forks, North  Dakota. They- were fed pratically  the v same feeds, but the Aberdeen  load was fed grain a little longer and  showed more finish. They were a  little lighter than the Grand Forks  cattle, but more of them sold for the  top price.  From November ' until January  these cattle were fed corn fodder ahd  sonde  alfalfa ' and  alfalfa was not very good as it was  the first year's crop and had a good  many weeds in it. _*_*o_a^.Janua_y on  they were- fed silage. and some grain-  We began by* feeding ear corn then  ground the corn, -cob and all. Later,  we shelled the corn before grinding,  and added barley or speitz, about  half ind half, but did not feed heavy  of grain. At no time did we feed all  the grain they would eat���������twelve to  thirteen po_*nds per head per day  being the most we fed. They were  fe-i all the silage they would eat,  whicli Was about 20 pounds per head  per day.  Our rseerds show that the 25 hen.d  at Aberdeen, in addition to silage,  alfalfa hay and some corn fodder,  were fed 215 bushels of corn which  was ground, cob and all, 50 bushels of  ground speitz and one ton of oil  meal. This was all ground and  mixed. Eighteen head of hogs following the cattle sold for' $253. '������������������������������������-  . The Grand Forks cattle were fed  grain in addition to silage and hay  for 74 days, during which time each;  ate^approximately: corn, 12 bushels;  barley, 9 bushels; hay, 700 pounds;  silage. 1.000' pounds. Allowin���������������aiar-  ket price for these feeds would be  about. $20 per head (silage figured at  $4 per ton). In addition hogs followed these cattle,- and there were  nearly 100 pounds of pork produced-  for each steer fed. Further there  is in the lots manure to cover 20  acres or more of the farm.*-  As to the cost of labor, it was  necessary to. have help on the farm,  and the cattle were attended to with  practically no additional cost.  While no attempt was'made to  conduct this work in a scientific way,  nor. to present the results as proving  any important facts, it is believed  that the demonstration Indicates that  it is possible to grow corn and alfalfa, build straw shades and silos,  and not necessarily lose time and  money in building up our soils.  It muy be added that every pound  of feed fed was grown on the farm,  that the cattle were not fed one feed  In a shed, and had only a- straw shed  for protection. The alfalfa hay was  not first class, as it was largely  from first year's seeding. The silage  was kept in a pit silo, and the silo  was refilled in March with dry fodder, and water added. This silage  is practically as good as silage put  In last fall while green.

Arms Plant  Is Not For Ss!e  No Amount of Money Which Anybody  Might Offer Would  induce the  Owners tj Sell  Curing the last few days there have  been very persistent rumors to the effect that Germany was seeking to purchase American ammunition    making  plants, not so much on account of any  shortage of ammunition for its own  armies as with a view to putting an  end      to  the   tremendous   shipments  which  are  going  forward  to  the  allies.      The    Remington    Arms-Union  Metallic Cartridge Company and the  Bethlehem Steel Company have both  been specifically named as objective  points of the German efforts.  .       But it now appears that there is not  other hay..   The ythe slightest chance of Germany securing a dollar's worth of interest in either of these two great concerns.:  r   Mr. Samuel F. Pryor, vice-president  and general manager of the Remington   Arms-Union   Metallic     Cartridge  Co., was seen today* in regard to the  persistent   rumors   that   have   lately  been in circulation, .to the effect that  offers made by a foreign government  for purchase of the properties of that  company were under   considerations,  and ihst the 9-dditions to the Ilion. and  Bridgeport   plants,   which   are   under  construction, are intended to be merely temporary and made only for the  performance  of special contracts en-  torpri tnfr������ 2.n.{i are not 'ntende'' for th"  permanent uses of the company-  Mr. Pryor was very emphatic in asserting that there was not the slightest foundation for these rumors; and  he pointed out that one story necessarily destroyed the other, because, if  a  sale  of  the  plants  and  properties  was   made,   the   additions   would not  be required for the purpose of enabling the company to perform its con-,  tracts; for the supply of arms and ammunition. '  .;   Mr. Pryor stated that no sum which-  might  be  offered   for  the  properties  would afford the slightest temntaticn  to the owner to dispose of them and  thus prevent the performance of exist- ^  ing contracts.   Mr. Fryor was equally  emphatic in asserting that the additions to the plants did not constitute  a mere temporary expedient, but were  largely made in accordance with tho  general  policy of expansion adopted  by the company before the outbreak  of the European war, and that this policy would not be Interfered with even  if the  war were to come to an end  tomorrow.     The     additions     to  tlio  piants    now   under   construction, are  of the most modern type and. of the  most substantial, durable and perman*  i ent  character.���������Commercial and Financial World, Now York, June 21.
