"Not'a word."  "But indeed you must." I persisted,  stepping within her cabin and carefully closing the door after me. "It is  your welfare alone that I seek. I  thiuk you should have known that."

What l had to say coucei'ned us  both so deeply that I cared not what  she said, and perhaps that closed  cabin into which I had penetrated was  the likeliest place for privacy in the  whole ship- i could by no means be  overheard, so 1 determined to speak  freely in a way not to be misunderstood.  *I mejtn you no harm.

CHAPTER VITT.  Wherein I Make All Clear to My Little Mistress  My pistol was still in my hand, and  she made a clutch at it, but I was too  quick for her. I caught her by the  wrist- The spell she had cast upon  us by her sudden entrance, her beautiful presence, her proud, brave demeanor, was broken by that touch.  The men laughed. The remembrance  of that laugh makes my blood boil  even nnw.  "I wish you joy of her," said one.  "You will have a time taming her,"  cried a second.  "Ah, you think so!" I cried, determining to carry out the deception to  the bitter end and to leave no chance  for the least suspicion to arise. I seized her by the shoulders, secretly praying God to forgive me for what I was  about to do, and shook her violently  back and forth. It was easy enough.  A baby in my hands would not have  been more helpless. ''Silence, you  fools!" I cried as the men began,to  laugh again, and then to her; "You  belong to me, woman- Do you hear?  I've bought you. I am your master.  Get back into your cabin. I will have,  speech with you later." Helpless, she  could do nothing. I thrust her into  the cabin, shut the door and faced the  men.

True, it is that natural conditions  can/' more frequently be given the  birds with little effort during the summer when they are more or less at  liberty, but there are conditions that  arise almost more serious than those  likely to develop when everything is  frozen up and undesirable germ development entirely dormant for the  time being. .Where but a small flock  is kept and they have unlimited freedom, usually the birds can'look after  themselves fully as well, but if numbers are to be handled they need  closer attention to  detail  during  the  grown without being spoiled by, the  flock, this danger is not so likely to  exist, but it is practically impossible  to keep birds confined to small yards  without having the soil contaminated  unless preventive means- are used-  Digging in the soil, treating- occasionally with air-slacked lime and growth  of some quick-growing vegetation  should take" care of the.mat.ter ef-  faeti.vely and prevent any danger of  loss from this cause.

All of the above is equally true in  ihe case of the young chicks, only  that they can stand less than the  large fowls and will'suffer..'more readily where they are not given these  protective conditions-. If possible the  chicks should be grown on different  ground each year and not more than  the number the land willstand should  be raised on it. The little fellows  should be allowed to range as far as  possible and have abundance of sunshine and shade so that they can have  the benefit of either at will. Lonj  growth and bushes afford ideal protection from wind and help' much in  adding to the undisturbed growth of a  growing flock- Corn fields and fiefds  bearing such like crops are the very  best places to allow the small chicks  to range and if their coops can he  placed in "proximity to such it will  prove the verf best arrangement that  could be secured-    .-  Food in the summer season is just  as  important  as at  any other  time.  Perhaps more  or less  is  due to improper i'eedng than most people imagine.    This is especially true of overfeeding.    It is a simple matter to reduce the amount of food the old fiock  gets  and  practically    eliminate   such  heating foods as corn and buckwheat.  However, we believe if a variety is fed  in limited quantities the birds will get  I along very nicely and give first-class  results.

The subject of this article might be  divided for convenience    into    three  parts,     namely,   housing   conditions,  yard   conditions   and   food.     Housing  conditions will have reference to both  the   breeding   stock   and    the   young  chicks.   With the former the important requirements are to see that the  houses bscome as well supplied with  fresh air all the time as possible. This  can be accomplished by removing all  windows arid making as much of the  coops open as possible without creating drafts on    the    birds   at   night.  IJouses that are  closed up much become stuffy and hot and the birds suffer exceedingly with the heat. at. night  when tliey are roosting in them.   The  greatest attention  must  be  given  to  keeping the coop absolutely clean and  where it is  possible  removal  of the  droppings every day should  be practised.    Frequent  use  of disinfectants  should be used and suitable red mite  exterminators -hould be used on the  roosts nnd their supports so that the  birds will not coir.o from   the roosts  in the morning used up from supplying' those blood-sucking insects with a  bountiful supply of rich chicken blood.  A sprinkling of atr-slacked lime on the  dropping; board- after cleaning will bo  found to be a valuable aid in suppressing odors.  Willi tho small chicks the precautions miggej-lart tire oven more ini-  1-ortnnt. than they arc with tho older  bir;lH.

Dry mash of goodv balance can be used w*iti_ the best results  and danger from overfeeding is practically done away with.  Too much water cannot be supplied  the birds at this time and the oftener  it is changed the fresher and cooler it  wiii be, for them. Special attention to  this detail will result in more eggs  when many birds are resting or loafing and have better birds to "enter the  fall and winter for business at, that  time.  With     the   small  chicks   feed   and  water  require  closest    attention,   in  every detail.   We have not found, anything to  replace a  good  commercial  chick  food   for the   first    six   weeks.  Usually we give treats of some sort of  meat cooked and cut up for the every  other day or so and hard boiled eggs  when  we   can  spare   them.   As     the  weather gets warm the danger seems  to lie in any endeavor to force the little fellows and generally with sloppy  feed of some sort or other start bowel  trouble that will bring disaster to a  good many of them. A little food often,  of big variety, and as much milk as  we can let them nave gives a chick  as good a start, as anything, and particular attention during the hot weather must be paid to see that* they do  not get too much.   Good, dry mash, of  course,     prevents  this   likelihood   of  over-feeding nnd while we are coming  to use the system more and more a  little time is gained by us by using a  wet mash made up Incgoly of bran and  ground grains moistened to a crumbly  mess with sour or sweet..milk.   We bo-  llavo Ihe birds feather better and possibly are  ready  just  a  little sooner  than with the dry mash-, eritirely.  If these detail's are glvon close at-  tantioii, innume.ablo difficulties that  may arls- may be avoided, such as  roup, (-anker, c.hU-.kenpox, going light,  consumption, and all forms of lost vitality duo to being fairly oaten up with  miles nnd lice that multiply by the  millions where tfc*- condition., favor  thorn.  It mny sesm oaaloi* to overlook  those llttlo details during the hot days,  hut, we fully believe ovory effort made  to stick to the attending to tho necessary daily details for succoss will bo  well repaid in lho Increasod results  tliat ennnot help, but. bo evidont whon  tho chicks come to mnt.nrlty.--A.

It  Dees Not Appear Absolutely  Dark   When   You   Wink  When a person .winks his eyes he  momentarily covers the entire eye-  bails and everything therefore should  turn absolutely black and, be in total  darkness for the instant. As a matter  of fact, he certainly is in total darkness, but he is unconscious of same.  The reason lie is unconscious is that  the eye is incapable of removing a certain view from itself until an eighth of  a second has elapsed. So the.view seen  just before.the bail goes into eclipse  continues to be seen for an eighth.of a  second. But as the eye is not covered  by the lid as long as this,,a new view  arrives to supplement, the old view before the old one has "Vanished. Thus  the darkness is not no'ticed, although  there is no doubt that it exists.  This same peculiarity of the eye enables moving pictures to have their being.

Tbey came forward  -���������.at'the slow .trot which is ordained  and practised for such adventures..  Ths men. in the front rank had actually locked arms: as if these most modern of warriors were part and parcsl  of a Macedonian phalanx. Their rifles  were not even hsld at the hips, much  less put to.the shoulder, but were sus-  panded by straps with the muzzles  pointing upwards and backwards. The  reason was that the men had no arms  or hands to spare. The one arm was  locked in the neighbor's; the other  was held across and in front of the  eyes to hide the death that was coming*. It is needless to add that none  of this sacrificed company dealt death  and ail of them died.  The incident was told to me by a  British officer who has seen as much  of'^he war as anyone and has most deservedly made his name in the Avar.  He gave the story in the course of conversation as an example of the most  moving spectacle which had come before his eyes during the war. The  slung rifle and the hands before the  eyes degraded the soldiers to sheep,.  a sight to distress another soldier's  heart, even though an enemy's. Why  the men were forced to this almost  passive immolation none could tell;  but apparently they represented a,deliberate move; in a concerted attack.  They were meant to die for ah unknown end.  The attack failed, and the Germans  lost heavily. The obedience, to which  the whole nation is attached, was in  this case ruin- How very different is  ths German soldier when his individuality is given play. 'Tn the dodges of  trench warfare they heat lis every  time " said the commander of one section of our trenches. Their snipers  have exhibited a remarkable combination of patience, scientific precision/*  anu~on occasion daring. _i_e s_aTii__t-u  ���������plan is to watch for any movement  in the opposing trench; either at .head  Or above the trench or a flick of movement behind a ioophole; Using a'.teie-  scope sight and fixing the rifle on a  rest and "drawing a bead" ou the spot,  the sniper will wait for an hour or  two till the movement is seen again;  and so accurate, is he;.that a hit is almost certain. We liave tested this accuracy again and again with dummies  and movement of paper or stuff behind loopholes. I dp not suggest that  the German snipers are better than  ours; but I am quite sura that they  have an easier quarry.

Another 16,000  doubtless came under the stimulus of  the last five months. Of the first  16,000 a board undertook to sort the  wheat from the chaff to eliminate the  "crank" proposals, and reduced to 25  ths number which, in the board's judgment, were worthy of any attention-  Another board has scrutinized these  25 more rigidly, and reduced them to  just two.

"I had heard so much about Mr.  Lloyd George," he said, "that I naturally expected to meet a big man in  every sense; but, as you, can flee for  yourselves, he is very small iii. stature."  Many an orator would have been  grievously upset by such an unfortunate beginning to the proceedings, but  not so Mr. Lloyd George.  "I am grieved to find," he said, with  meek seriousness, "that your chairman is disappointed in my size, but  this is owing to tho way you have  here of measuring a man. In North  Wales we measure a man from his  chin up, but you evidently measure  him from his chin down!"  After   that,   the chairman made no  more personal remarks.

Hayes, Owner and Editor.  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, SEPT. 10  fore tbe war the banks advanced to  the public eight millions in excesa  of their deposits.  Bank deposits in any case eorne  from the people, and so long as  they can be. put out on reliable  security it is good business to lend  agriculture every legitimate financial assistance right now.  Creston is not the only spot experiencing trouble in raising sufficient funds to make possible the  purchase of a machine gun. Down  at Kaslo, where they launched the  work two weeks earlier than here,  slightly over $450 has been pledged  to date, while at Creston about one  hundred dollars less has bee*o  promised.  At Kaslo the gentlemen who.  launched the project are real sore  because the great big generous  public have not responded rnore  liberally. Listen to this from last  ���������week's HLoot-^"���������'-"  'There is always lots of cheap  *' patriotism in the form of shooting  "off the mouth, but for those who  " stay at home from the firing line  " tbe   patrk.______    that   counts   is.  " money, and it is as important to  44 the successful conclusion of the  "war for the side of the Allies as  " ability to fire a gun."  The trouble at both centres seems  to be that well-intentioned enthusiastically started the project and af ter  getting it well underway wearied of  well doing and eased off on the  good work, trusting sufficient others  would follow the good example set  and come across with their contributions without solicitation���������wind-  is just exactly what most people are  hot doing this year, nor in most  other years.  Sirdar*s $86.50 cash contribution  shows*what a businesslike canvass  will produce. Unless a like policy  is to be followed at other-points in  the Valley the project may- as well  be abandoned, as it is in Kaslo.  Now that Canada is making  arrangements to have 200,000 men  on or available for active service  the calls for help for Red Cross  work and Patriotic Fund are sure  to be numerous. Full justice will  not be done to rther worthy causes  until these machine gun pledges are  paid or the work abandoned.  In view of the possibility of a  colony of Doukhobors locating permanently a few miles south of  Creston the deoision of the provincial department of justice to proceed against them because of their  refusal to obey the law relating to  sending their children . to school  and for failure to comply with the  law relating to boiler inspection is  interestirg.  When it comes to education it is  imperative that no community  shall be allowed to grow up in British Columbia, the members of which  shall not become assimilated with  the rest of the population so far as  the subject matter of education is  concerned.  ~ It is also necessary that they be  compelled to observe the regulations governing the registration of  births and marriages aud such  other laws as our legislature has  felt called upon to enact aSS- the  general well being of the public.

While common report has it that  in some respects we might follow  their example without bann, and  with some advantage, no matter  how excellent some of their ideas  may be, they are not ours and the  Doukhobors must be shown, forcibly if necessary, that while they live  among us and receive the benefit of  such protection as our laws afford,  they must be prepared to obey  those laws, wheii it is.necessary for  the general welfare.  A timely meeting of representatives of the farmers' organizations  of the prairie provinces was held at  Winnipeg last week, when the  question of prices likely to be  received for this 5rear's grain crop  was discussed.  At the conclusion of the conference a public statement was issued  urging the farmers, as far as possible, to store a portion of their  grain and, in this way, spread the  marketing of it over the next eight  or ten months, rather than place it  in immense quantities upon the  market in the next few months  with the certainty of bringing  prices to a considerable lower level.  In giving this advice those present were not unmindful of tho fact  that the man on the land has liabilities to meet in October and  Nc-vemlt-er, and in this commotion  made an appeal to tho banking in'  HtitutioriB to take advantage of tho  powers recently conferred, to mako  advances to farmers on the security of grain on the farm.

It seems hardly believable that a  class of people should exist whose outlook is so narrow, whose feelings are  so vile, and who are so absolutely rotten that they can add to the trials of  the men who-are actually fighting for  them.  Alas, it is only too true, that this  state of affairs exists and will continue  to exist until the decent-minded citizens of Creston take steps to root out  this mess of corruption from its midst.  There is no hope for the fighting man  even to meet these slanderers on this  as the ministers were taken in by Cots-  worth. As far as B.C. is concerned  the "crisis" is a dead letter.

On the opening day it received its  first batch of wounded from, the front,  and by the end of the Week 200 men  were under treatment there; but in  its modesty the hospital shuns any  notice, and the Daily Chronicle was  told that. hy war office instructions no information whatever  was available for press or public.  But as appeals are being made  through the press to the. public for  gifts for tho furnishing of the hospital and the welfare of the inmates,  some little interest may be permitted.  The hospital occupies the building in  Stamford street which was being-  erected for the government stationery office, and its six floors when  fully equipped will accommodate  1,650 patients.

Mentioning the Bagdad  railway, Sir John said one of the  first problems to be dealt with would  be the removal of the great sand bar  at. the entrance of the Shat-el-Arab  which obstructs the navigation of  vessels even of moderate size.  Refaring to the construction by  the Germans o������ the Ottoman-Bagdad railway to link the Anatolian  railway at I^onia with Bagdad and  the Persian gulf, he said:  "Once We have peace and the Germans are out of control of Turkey  this railway should be completed  across ths Taurus mountains on to  Bagdad and tlience to** Basra at any  rate, if not further on to Koweit.  With the railway completed and a  direct line of only some 450 miles in  length from Bagdad through Damascus to Boyrut, huge trade would  be opened for the whole of this  Mesopotamia district and through  Basra to the Persian Gulf and the  East. As regards the proposed irrigation works held up by the Avar,  there is no doubt that any money  expended on triem would be amply  repaid, as in Ihe case of the great  works of the Nila valley and the  Cdienat valley of Tndia, aud then tho  Mesopotamia district should become  'one of tho largest and best gran-  of the world.'

Regiment  ��������� tb Hands of the  Emperor  From   Petrograd    comes   this   stirring- picture of a woman who  saved  the flag of a Russian regiment.  "Half a dozen Sisters of Mercy arrived at Petrograd after a three  weeks' journey from captivity in Germany. They were taken prisoners *  with all their wounded in a field hospital during the earlier fighting in  East Prussia. Among tne wounded  was a soldier of a certain foot regi-*~  ment who along with the Sisters was  sent hack from the front to the  ���������neighborhood o_ Berlin. The Germans made Russian wounded early  convalescents, sending them as prisoners of war to a fortress.  "One of the convalescents, beforo  being taken away, contrived to speak  secretly -with one of the Sisters, and  confided to her that he had with him  ���������so well concealed that the Germans  had not found it���������the standard of  his regiment, which he had torn from  its staff at a critical moment and  hidden away. He conjured the Sister,  if ever sho had an opportunity, to  convey tho sacred relic of his regiment into the hands of the emperor,  or, failing that, to destroy it.  . "The Sister, with others, when her  own wounded had recovered, offered  to assist in the German hospitals, but  her German colleagues demurred,  and attar much correspondonlQ  among various German authorities.  It was decided that these Sisters  might return to Russia. Tho one who  saved tho standard of the regiment  dallverod into tho emperor's own  bunds tho famous battle relic."

Forthcoming Geiebration in Gonneetion with the Hundred  JL  _.-*.- _>  of Peace will be Somewhat Curtailed Owing to the  War,  But wheal War is Oyer a Large Festival will be Held  Owing to the Avar the program-of  She forthcoming celebrations in connection with the .hundred years of  peace between Great Britain and the  United States- has been A somewhat  modified. This decision has been  reached after tjonsultation between  the leading men responsible for the  preparations. In the midst of a terrible conflict it did hot appear seemly that public rejoicings should be  encouraged. This part :6f the program, accordingly, has been postponed till a more convenient season.  "When the war is over'and peace once  raore reigns throughout Europe the  festivities will be held on a scale that  ylll not only voice Canadian sentiment  toward the great republic to the south,  put also give full vent to the feelings  -of relief that the most terrible^war in  the world's history has been brought  to aclpse.  The Canadian Peace Centenary association���������which, by the way, .is not  and never has been a "Peace Society"  ���������has just issued a pamphlet which  eheds an interesting light on the temper prevailing between the Canadian  and American peoples. The ratification of the.treaty of Ghent took place  ea February 17, 1815, and- on the  centenary date great numbers of messages were exchanged between; the  president of the Canadian j.eace Centenary association, Sir Edmund "Walker, and the governors of the States;  fcetween cities and towns on both  sides of the line; between boards of  trade,  and   even ��������� between   individual  firms aud their correspondents across  the border- These are printed in the  pamphlet, and bear witness to a cordiality of spirit which affords a wel-  .conie contrast to the dark animosities  which make other continents so  dreadful a spectacle today.    '���������>���������.���������'���������.  These messages display a wonderful  unanimity of conviction, ahd it may  be added that many or those from the  neighboring republic 'convey the  heartiest' good wishes for the success  of our cause. Another feature of the  .pamphlet is yth&. description bf the services held on Sunday, February 14, in  an extraordinary number of churches  in both couiitries. ..''���������'.  The public celebrations of this triumph of reasohabl_hess sind good-will  .should    be one ot the earliest events  after   the conclusion bf   the present  dreadful struggle.  .In the meantime the most important part of the program is being carried through. The education of public opinion and the cultiA-ation of a  reasonable attitude of mind in the  conduct of international relations are  being emphasized.  The mayor of Cleveland, replying to  a message from Toronto, says:  "The "preservation of peace for 100  years between two great peoples with  an unfortified boundary of 4,000 miles  is the greatest achievement in the  history of nations. May the next 100  years further strengthen our cordial  good-will, and may our example teach  men everywhere the possibilities, ofc  permanent peace with honor."  Prices Still Higher  Cost of Living Has Gone up Since tho  w������. ������������������'���������:"  The annual report of the department of labor on prices of wholesale  and other goods during 1914 states  that "the factor which chiefly affected  Canadian prices during the year 1914  was tht outbreak in August of the  great European war. Fronv January  __;.t;l A.pr_i tne genera, price lEvei vf������is  steady with a slight tendency upward;  thereafter there was a decline of two  point- in the index number, during  June and July, the latter being the  lowest, month of the year. The war,  however, at once caused advances of  about seven points, and though there  was a reaction almost immediately  and although the year ended on approximately .the same level as it began, the effect on the average for the  12 months was a rise. The departmental index number (which includes  272 commodities) stood at 136.1 for  1914, compared with 135.5 for 1913,  and 134.4 for 1912, these numbers.being percentages of the average^prices  prevailing during the decade 1890-95,  the period adopted by the departments as the basis of comparison. The  point reached in September, namely  141.4, was the highest recorded by the  department since 1890.  The chief increases for the year as  a whole appeared in the groups,  trains and fodder, which rose 14 per  cent.; animals and meats, 6 percent.;  woollens, 8 per cent.; hides, 10 per  cent.; drugs and chemicals, 7 per  csnt. Raw furs declined 33 per cent.,  fuel and lighting 6 per cent, and cottons 5 per cent. Food prices returned to the high levels that prevailed  in the latter part of 1911 and early  1912. Meats were on a high level  throughout the year, but showed-  jnuch weakness in the last three  months-  An appendb: to the report gives the  average retail prices of some 32 articles of food and of coal, wood and  coal oil, and the rent of a representative workingman's dwelling in each of  tha localities of the Dominion having  a population of 10,000 and over for  each year back lo 1910. A statement  -bowing tho average weekly expenditure of a typical family of live on  these staple commodities gives the  tiost of a budget of food at $7.73, as  compared with $7.33 In 1913 and 1912,  and  $7.11  In  1911, and ..G.9G In 19.10.  Seasonable Hints  Advice   Given   on   Agriculturi  'roil-.  y'Items- by  Experimental Stations  Under the auspices of the Dominion  Experimental farms a quarterly publication is  being issued  entitled "Seasonable Hints,"  to wEich  the  principal authorities at  the  Central Farm  contribute.

Director Grisdale,  of the Experimental  Farms, says that the first number was  so  flatteringly  received  that he  and  his. staff   are encouraged to hope for  even a better reception for this number.

Shutt,  Dominion chemist,    briefly furhish6s  sage advice regarding the farm water  supply.    Mr. J. F. Watson, Chief Officer of tho Extension and  Publicity  Division, emphasi-os the invitation to  the 720,000 occupiers of farm lands in  the Dominion to address problems for  solution to principals; and superintendents.   A copy of "Seasonable Hints,"  It should be added can be had free on  addressing   the   Publication   Branch,  Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.  A farmer-banker conference has no  ordinary significance at this time- It  is an opportunity to bring a lagging  public opinion up to date. Free and  easy "America, willingly or unwillingly, must pull' itself together for future  industrial prosperity in much the  saine way that Europe in waging the  Svar. The enormous advantages of  national co-operation will accrue to a  country at peace as well as a country  at war. Is it to be supposed for' a  second that Great Britain will let  Lloyd George go at the end of the  war An the face; of the trade machine  that the German government has perfected?  \Co-operation that, Americans have  so voluminously talked about and vo  generally neglected has now become a-  necessity.: ^Business men;:legislators,  producers, and consumers must organize if the United States is to take a  position in proportion to its size,  riches, ability and resources. In an  age of world co-operation an exaggerated -individualism must not confuse  democratic progress: When America  was sparsely settled with, hunters,  herders^ and farmers individualism  was a practical and natural love. Now  millions of mouths are to be fed and  hands kept busy through industrial activity in domestic and foreign trad������.  If the German government organizes,  one of those efficient combinations  known as the cartel, to sell pencils in  Peru, then the merchants of this country must do the same.  But it does hot mean that the'Amer:  ican-" government is suddenly to become paternalistic or develop into a  state socialism. If the intelligent individual accepts the new co-operative  world and the banker will work with  the farmer not for immediate but ultimate gains, public opinion will never  impose upon him. Co-operation in  place of individualism does, not run  counter to any democratic principles  or theories, but merely puts them on  trial again. Can an individualistic  democracy adapt itself intelligently to  the methods that wiii bring- the greatest prosperity to the country?  The farmer-banker method of working out the problem is in harmony  with ths .best traditions, of democratic-  Americanism.��������� Chicago TribS-ne.

The press is advising the  farmers to hire men now and to hire  them for a year in advance. There  is indeed, talk of a fam.ne of unskilled labor in the fall. Many thousands of men, not merely from Canada, but the States, have left for  Europe, since the war started. Where  will the men/come from, and particularly in view of the added acreage,  which will mean more labor, as there  is fully 30 per cent, of increase under  cultivation? The States expects the  largest crop in its history; and experts in the west insist that our crop,  if the favorable conditions are maintained, will be the largest that we  have produced. It is now the question of labor .hat is agitating the  minds of the farmers. Several towns  aud municipalities have ������.u_peiided  their programme of public work in  order that all the laborers possible  should be on the land for the harvest.  It is a fact as undeniable as it is  remarkable, that although but remotely connected with the immeiiate conditions which precipitated the war;  Great Britain occupies today the position of greatest prominence in the  struggle- The tc-ritory in .which- the  campaign is raging is not British territory and the number of men that  Great Britain actually has engaged is  much smaller than that of either Russia or France, yet, somehow the conviction lias forced itself Lome upon  the public mind that Great Britain  really has more at stake dh this great  conflict than either, of her allies, and  thaty������he heaviest share of the tremendous responsibilities of the war rests  iipon the British people. This thought  as expressed by one writer will meet  with acquiescence from all sides "in  -the final analysis the task of defeating  G-rmany is'not Russia's task, nor  France's - vsk, nor Italy's task, but  the task of the British people."  "In casting about for possible reasons why the original; order of prominence of the respective allied nations  in this struggle, should have been thus  reversed, there are several considerations which present themselves.  There is no d<-'.ubt that German self-  complacency received a heavy jolt,  when Great Britain refused point  blank, to countenance for a moment  the proposed violation of Belgian neutrality upon the part of Germany. The  Kaiser and his associates suddenly  discovered that the two nations -were  as wide apart as the poles, in their  conception of the sacredness of national obligations. That, treaty which  the Prussians -vjiad schooled themselves to consider but a scrap of paper  to be repudiated at will they founa  in the estimation of Great Britain to  constitute'a solemn obligation whose  inviolability must be prese_vsd as inseparably bound up with the national  honor. That Great Britain should  /en go the'.length of declaring war in  defense of the principle involved in  signing a treaty to protect and to preserve Balgian neutrality, upset the  Titp.e* ->alcnl&t.ions Avhi_h��������� t^i_. Q__t_.--.H3  had made, based on an -elaborate es-  the very flower of the whole Prussian  army against the British linos to compass that end���������but in vain. Like a  very Nemesis on his track, British  courage, British s perseverance and  British lighting spirit will pursue the  quarry to the end, the British forces  will be in at the feat!- and British  standards of honor will impress upon  th 3 Prussian autocracy, in terms that  cannot be mistaken, that when Germany signs her name tc a scrap of  paper, she pledges the national honor,  irom which -once pledged, there is:'no  turning aside, whatever the. cost. Tho  effectiveness;AO-. the..assistance which  Great:1. Britain^ _&. I beeuy able; to afford  ��������� A_ allies, has done much to make the  Germans particularly vindictive in  their attitude toward the British.  The principles, in defence of which  Great Britain entered the war place  her upon a different footing from any  other natith involved. The influence  which drew Russia and France into  the conflict were irresistible from the  standpoint-of national interests, bui  Great Britain was not immediately involved in those matters. Had Germany observed Belgian neutrality in  accordance with her pledged word, the  attitude of Great Britain would have  been materially changed. In entering  tha war to redeem her pledged word  to protect Belgian neutrality, Great  j Britain stands for a principle which itself is invincible and a principle which  underlies the right of every nation to  exist. The German rulers could not  have been conscious of the perfidy of  their acts and of the fact that 'the  unqualified condemnation of all free  peoples rested upon those acts as did  universal commendation attend tho  splandid conduct of Great Britain. T<_  be thus humiliated before the world  in the light of the marked contrast  between British and German standards of honor, added fuel to the flames  of German hatred of Great Britain  But behind all these incidental or  _econdary considerations, does there  not Me one fundamental fact, name-  *lv. that to sret 3.t.��������� frTP���������t Pv?t;.i_ .s_fi_^-  favorable conditions, was the real, the  pionage system, as to the probabilities |'Ultimate object of the ^whole German  of Great Britain arraying herssif with 1 PO'icy of aggression.

Effort to  Bring Aboii:  More  Friendly  Relations  One of the most important events  of tho past year wa. the sympathetic  understanding which was reached between farmers and manufacturers. In  discussing this, Canadian Farm, a  weekly agricultural journal published  in Toronto, says:  "The farmer is not inherently antagonistic to tho manufacturing Inter-  oots. While tho basic industry in Canada is agriculture, the ono is largely  tho complement of* the other. The  farmer ia depend mt upon tlio manufacturer for a large share of tho equipment necessary to successfully carry  on hla farming operations. On the  othor haud, the business of the manufacturer could mako llttlo progress  without a prosperous farming community, and Increased production from  the hind.

This was  sufficient to arouse  Prussian    choler  against     Great  Britain,  but  does not  provide   a xsuf_icient   oxplauation   of  the manner in which the British people haye. been singled .out for special  hatred or why, having become one of  Germany's   enemies,   Great     Britain  should step up to the most prominent  Position a.0 ^erman^'s rthief oo^oneut.-  Tile     effective  part played  by. til-  British   army   and   the   British   navy  during the first six weeks of the war,  was undoubtedly very galling to the  German pride. The manner in which  the British fleet, opportunely moboliz-  ed.for review purposes, moved quietly  across the North Sea and took iip its  position at the two p'oint:  of egress  for the German fleet, thus locking up  that  fleet  upon   which   the  Germans  had stayed such fond hopes and the  manner iu which the British navy in  practically -unbroken  silence, through  twelve  months,  has  held that  entire  Germany navy . 0 helpless a. a bunch  of toy ships on a mill pond must certainly have coii-UUited a most bitter  potion for the Kaisc. to swallow���������and  he appears to havo been a rather poor  hand to take his"niedicina, even from  childhood.    Similarly, the expeditionary force  which  Great    Britain  was  able to throw over into the north of  France at the beginning of the war,  was of but sma.l  proportions,' but it  performed  prodigies  of valor, it  lent  confidence  to the situation  from ths  French and Russian viewpoint, it Immensely helped to stiffen the resistance  with which the Usrman advance was  confronted and it played a most prominent part in'kospin,"* tlio Germans on  the   run  in   that  historic   retreat  of  General von Kluck from tho vory environs of the French capital. Throughout the jntiro campaign on tho wes ���������  ern front, tho  ever    growing British  force, gathored from all parts of tho  cniplro hao constituted tlio k \v |o the  position of the aides.   The Kaiaer has  re.Dgnized the fact that a declelvo de-  feat  of  tho   British   would   turn   tho  scales In his favor, ha has launched  for a moment that the conquest of Belgium and France and the humiliation  of Russia would have compassed. the  whole plan that Germany had in mind  in precipitating this war. These were  necessary steps it is true, butA they  were but the intermediary stages in  arriving at the real purpose which lay  beyond. The discomfiture of Franca  and Russia would have been followed  by an interlude of peace of sufficient  length to allow Germany to consolidate  her gains, to foster^her strength and  to complete her preparations, for  launching the great purpose of all her  Herculean endeavors, namely, ihe pitting of German strength against that  of the British, enipiro'in a-merciless  murderous struggle for supremacy for  all time. It is becaiuse tho participation of Great Britain In the present  war forces the hand of Germany that  the pent up flood of German hate is let  loose upon the British people. Tho  game has got out of hand; the carefully laid plans of Prussian militarism  have been thrown out of alignment;  the Hell-conceived scheme of world  domination by a Prussia.: Hegemony  has proved abortive; Great Britain's  fealty to her pledged word, her un-  hestitatingly commitment of herself to  the demands of national honor, has  proven itself the invincible champion  of national security, and of the liberties of the world.  This it is which accounts for the  prominent position which Great Britain occupies in this great struggle.  The programme which Germany planned to carry out in two parts, haa  been precipitated in one great struggle  which Germany cannot hope to cope  with successfully. Consequently, bo-  cause , of the participation of Great  Britain, Germany flnda heraelf faco to  face with, failure after generations of  elaborate preparation and the wholo  brunt of her frothing hatred is hurled  upon tho one nation above all other  nations, which alio had planned to  humble, but which ,sho ia now forcvor  dobarred from even assailing separately, namely, Grant Britain.
