fact that Canada; is a country of tremendous resources, remarkable development, and wears seven-league boots
in   taking  forward   strides;   that  her
great northwestern provinces are-undergoing transition. Farms are springing out of the ranges;, great herds giving way before the inevitable march
of the settlers; virgin soil being turn- i
ed on  a thousand plains;    railroads
piercing the hitherto unoccupied land-
to  the  northward;   manufactures  increasing;   more  aud larger  elevators
rearing their structures for the housing, of her grains.   Her population increased from five millions in 1901 to
seven'millions in 1911���and is fifty-five
per cent, rural.    She has 700,000 occupiers of land against 540,000 in 1901.
Her government is spending $10,000,-
000 in aid of agricultural instruction.
Her root and  fovdder crop last year
was valued at close to ��200,000,000, re
founded on substantial basis. A panoramic view of the great wheat belt
already referred to gives an excellent
idea of the general topography of this
vast region���a body of land embracing 270,000 square miles. The Canadian government is ready to give
every adult 160 acres of this wheat
land, and -with a view of cultivating
shrubs and trees presents the settlers
with the seedlings. Since January,
1897, Canada has given away 400,000
free homesteads Of 160 acres each���
and has seven V.~iar. that amount yet
to give.

Perry Belmont predicts the downfall
of the German Imperial government,
which he describes as "modernized
feudalism, heir in form and spirit to
the despotism, of the iniquitous Holy

For Which There was no Excuse or Justification
What the verdict of the American
people is upon this war has never
been more forcibly stated than by
S-muel Harden Church, ^president of
ths Carnegie Institute, Pittsburg, and
it is worth while to review* the article
he w-rote in response to the famous
appeal of the 93 German professors
and scientists which was addressed to
the neutral world some months ago.
These professors asserted in the first
place that Germany wanted peace, and
that the violation of Belgium's neutrality was not to be charged to her,

Good Work of  Rural  School  Teacher
in Saskatchewan
:',. ^omewhere in northeastern Saskatchewan stands a little schoolhouse
hidden fi'o'm" view by the thick woods
which surround it arid threaten to encroach on the small space cleared for
the school grounds, says the Public
Service Monthly, Regina. The settlement is ah;Austrian one and at 8.30
every morning-abou": 25 little foreign
born boy's- and girls make their .way
along the '.rails that converge at the
school. At the dooy they are met by
the teacher, a young Ontario man who
has spent several summers teaching
among foreign-speaking people. He
shakes hands with each child and his
kind -inquiries and remarks indicate
that he has an intimate knowledge of
the character arid home life of each.
All   the   children    then wash their
hands and faces and comb their hair,
the  teacher assisting the little  tots,
arid it is, evident that the sweet-smelling soap  and  clean  towels  are very
in,uch appreciated.    At the ringing of
a bell the children ".march    to their
positions beside their scats and sing-
all    together,    "Father,   -we    tliank
Thee," after which all heads are bowed and the "Lord's .Prayer" is reverently recited In English.    After this
the "fiagman" of    the day���a lad of
-nine���takes his place at the door with
a large Union Jack and the children
file past him and form it circle round
the old poplar tree  which  serves as
a  flagstaff.    Two  boys  pull  the  flag
iip  while  all  heartily  sing the  first
v_rso of "God Save the King."    It is
now    time to begin the work ot the
dr.y,  and    the    children  march   Into
school with happy hearts to wrestle
with the difficulties of the t'-ree R's.
"God Save the King." Yes, and
long live such noble-hearted teachers
as this young man in the little rural
the allies had done so?
Answering the assertion of his. correspondent that Germany did not begin the war, President Church uses
these memorable words:
"If G-erflnany is not guilty, then, in
God's name, why are our armies in
'Belgium? Why -c-rc. they in' France?
If you had waited until you had been
attacked, you would never have found
your nation at war. Your imperial
chancellor says that you have vio-
.lated international, law an-J. that you
'will endeavor to make good the wrong
you are committing. Why, all the
gold you could give to France and
Belgium in a^thousand years, and all
the penitential prayers you could Utter in every hour of a thousand years,
together v.ith the', contrition; of .-
shamed and broken heart, woiild uot
repair your ruin of two nations by
fire and slaughter, nor dry up the
ocean    of human tears    which    have
accompanied your hideous invasion.
People sometimes ask us* 'Would you
rather have the Slav than the German? Arid the reply is always to
the same effect: 'Yes; since we have
seen the German at. war, we would
rather have the Slav, rather the Turk,
rather the Hottentot;"'
Ii_ the opinion, of President Church,
who has visited Ge-rmany, the war began potentially 25 years  ago,    when
the Kaiser ascended, the throncj proclaimed  himself  Supreme  War Lord
and proceeded ��� to prepare his nation
for war.   His own children were raised from the cradle to consider themselves soidiers; "and liere in America
we know even his daughter only by
her    photograph "���_..    a colonel's uniform."   The   man   wearing the Kaiser's uniform became at once a member of an exclusive class,    A waiter
questioning a score with a drunken officer was stabbed to the heart; his uniform making a good defence.   A man.
in humble station who sought to greet
with familiar approach a soldier now
in officer's uniform^ was killed for his
impudence, the murderer even writing
a letter to his victim's mother justifying  the  crime. * "I    have  myself,"
says President Church, "seen German
officers  elbow  gentlewomen  on    the
street to make more room for- themselves. ��� 1 have seen others of them
raise    their glasses to the day when
they would be at war."
Another paragraph in the reply of
Dr. Church to his German correspondent is worth quoting yjn full, for it
expresses, as he declares, the opinion
of the great masses of the American
people:A      ���'���'..���������
"And so, at last, we find ourselves

CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, SEPT. 17  Wi*  In another column we have a  letter from K. M. Winslow,' provincial horticulturist.   We do not pub-  xxk/xx xxi v___ -cvuuiiu vi   i.o ii-vvo value  ���������its entirely lacking in that  respect���������but seemingly Mr. Winslow is of opinion that his epistle  fully answers our "Bo They Stop?"  editorial of September 3rd, aud  under- the circumstances Keview  readers are entitled to hear him  out.  In attempting to justify liis possible failure to arrange a stop at  Creston, Mr. Winslow would have  us believe it is all or account of the  C.P.R. refusing to co-operate with  him; the railway has refused to  allow the regular train to stop here  a couple  of hours, and  they  have  business men are expecting him to  show them every possible worthwhile fruit-growing point. Creston  is the one best bet in this respect in  the Kootenays, and if Mr. Winslow  has not gumption enough to at  least enquire from some reliable on-  the-spot authority if a stop at Creston is humanly possible,and if so to  arrange accordingly, then the sooner the minister of agriculture gets  this gentleman with the soothing-  syrup cognomen into some less-  iuiportant position so niuon t������e  better for the province, in at least  this respect.  B   ������_  Ii  mJggsi***g M&i  The Review came in for  some  adverse friendly criticism last week  for printing the letter from K.  Sinclair Smith, headed "A Strong  Protest."  We expected as much.

Overlooking the cheap sarcasm  Mr. Winslow attempts at- Creston's  expense in discu^isg these features  (something that should be. beneath  the dignity of a man occupying the  post of chief horticulturist) we  -would draw attention to the fact  that it isn't necessary tn ask the  railway to hold the westbound express here at ail  If the visitors come in on the  regular trein we think Mr. Winslow could arrange with the C.P.R.  to cut off the business men's cars  here and have them taken on west  by the freight train that is going  through here every night about ten  o'clock, which would get them  into Nelson long before daylight  next morning, and give Creston  about six hours in which to show  the tourists the Valley and otherwise dispense hospitality. If they  are travelling on their own special  train, of course, no special arrangements such as these will be necessary.  While Mr. Winslow would   have  ns believe the market commissioner's report "does not  make clear  that they are going to stop at Nel-  H'on" (nor at Grand Porks) we still  are of opinion that Nelson  is positively mentioned.

We might also add, too, that  such a worthy fighter against the  host of Prussianism should be the  last to advocate the methods of the  Huns in dispensing justice in such  cases, as per Mr. Smith's ^remark  "that the men who are punishing  "the aggressors of French and Bel-  "gian women will know exactly  "how to deal with theni."  So far as THE REVIEW is able to  observe  the  dependants  of   every  man at the  front  are  held in the  same  esteem,   socially,   financially  and in every other  respect as they  were prior to the troops' departure.  If any person or persons is or are  or have  conducted  a campaign of  an election, if for  no other reason, I slander against them Mr. Smith is  starts in ' n his graveyard-filling  rampage we suggest that he give  due notice so that the local cemetery can be put in real good shape  to receive his victims.

Some of these prospectors camped  near the mouth of the river for the  purpose of prospecting the banks of  the rivei, Their arrival was not view-  ed with a very friendly eye by the  _n-Ji&ns on the reserve,  "When Father Cocola arrived to  work among them he told them that  he had come to instruct and benefit  them as much as possible. Among  the prospectors who were scattered  along, the shores of Kootenay Lake  and the banks of the Kootenay river  were many of his co-religionists. Naturally he paid them visits at diixer-  ent times. The fact of his doing so  coming to: the ears of the Indians  gave rise to much discussion and alsO  jeaiousy, as they looked upon. the  priest as one who should devote his  time to them alone. He was told by  the chief and others of the tribe that  if he continued to visit these white  men trouble would ensue. Father Cocola,, however, kept on doing what  his conscience told him was his duty,  and his visits to the newcomers were  continued.  At this time Father Cocola dwelt in  a small cabin which he had erected  close to A the Indian reserve. Early  bnemorning he saw the door open,  ahd the chief entered without- knocking���������-for Indians never knock before  opening a. door. He saw at a glance  that it was the chief and that he was  bent on mischeif, for his face bore a  wicked scowl. In his hand the chief,  carried a short handled axe and approached the berth where Father- Cocola was lying and told the priest  \_fia_ ne n&G. coins i*. j_in nun. ; w ���������_.������*-  ont showing the slightest sign of fear  the priest sprung"oiit of bed..

Cowed by the  bearing of the priest the Indian dropped the axe and slunk out of the cabin..  For many years Father* Cocola lived and worked among these Indians,  but his residence was changed to St.  Mary's. Every two weeks, however,  he paid a visit to the reserve. On  the days, (generally Saturday) when  he was expected, the railroad station  at Creston, on - the C.P.R., was always crowded with Indians men women nnd children, and the adults always contended for the honor of  carrying his satchel and. other-articles  from the station to the guest's residence not far from the reserve. It  was a wonderful exhibition of affection which those once ignorant savages exhibited towards this pioneer  missionary to their reserve.  On the conmencement of construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific Father  Cocola was chosen by Ihe chtu-ch  authorities to proceed to Ft, St. James to look aftor the interests of the  church and of tho Indians who resided  in that vicinity Father Cocola, in addition to (usability as a, nii-nionary,  isa capable business man. An illustration of liis busine-R acmncn, and  also of his influence with the Indians,  is afforded by the great St. Eugene  silver-lead . mine, in East Kootenay.  This mine was discovered by some  of Father Oocola's Indian flock, who  told tho priest about it. He disposed  of it to the company which Jong  worked it, and devoted the proceeds  to his mission work.  __������ li__^.   j_JL.__ _^^������__.  x_*4u__-_._-������- __-������ -^-OSt  Canyon City, Sept. 14.  Editor Review:  Sib,���������Let us take stock and ascertain who is paying the cost of the war?  If it is the duty of the man who has  nothing else to give to offer his life,  what is the duty of the man who has  great wealth, or privilege to be defended?  Let us do away with the present unjust syKtem under which the big interests enjoy the protection of the public  whom, in many cases, they have robbed of their rights, and who bear the  burden of their defence in extra taxation. But if this is too ambitions a  programme let us make those who  have most reason to favor a large  army pay for it. Let lis tax the large  landowners timber limit holders, and  water power controllers, and other  special privileges.  .Every,time you lick a war tax stamp  just stop and consider what amount of  war tax you are paying compared with  the Other fellow. If all ! the people in  Canada, for instance, are to contribute  according to their means for the safety of the empire, should note the big  interests be compelled to set the example ?

"I can't even get an observation  then unless we have clear weather," I  answered.  "There'll be no clear weather today, I take it," said an old seaman  standing with the other two.  "I don't much think it," I assented.  "Well,   what  do  you  advise  than?"  asked Pimball.  "That we stand on slowly during the  day and heave to at night, and if we  can't get a shot at the sun stay hereabouts until the sky is clear and tha  sun visible, then we will know just exactly what course to take and just  what's best, to be done."  The adviee was so self evidently  good, in, fact the only practicable advice, that there was no hesitation in  accepting it.

A  111 tic liquor would mako theni ugly  alfalfa it is  easy to  be misled  by advice 'emanating from  certain  sources   relating   to  the  time  of  cutting   the  crop.     The  westerner  ! who is  accustomed     to  a light rain-  ! fall watches    the    blossom or bloom j  land,    taking    their    cue    from that,.;  j many   corn-belt   I'armars   have   made j  I the mistake of letting their crop get i  | too  far advanced  before cutting.  The j  I bloom is not a safe guide in the corn j  | belt,   a   much- better    on.   being   the j  growth   that   makes   its     appearance <  j just above the crown of the old plant. ;  ! - It is a simple matter to determine |  ! just   when   alfalfa   should  be   cut   by ]  | observing   these   young   shoots.     We !  do   not   refer to       the   suckers     that  sometimes grow spindlingly alongside  of    the     old   stems,     says  the   Iowa  Homestead,    but,    rather, to the new-  buds     that     break   out     periodically  from the old root.    When tnis growth  ranges in length anywhere from  two  to four inches it is then time to cut  the  crop,    in  the  first   place,  alfalfa  will cure  into a palatable and nutritious hay if it is cut before the stems  get   woody,   and,   furthermore,   if  the  cutting   is  done   so    that  the   young  shoots   are   not   severed,   this   means  that the next crop will come ou with-  m.-    rlol--.  ��������� ��������� -���������j .  It is quita true that early cutting  sometimes involves a difficult task  in curing out the hay, because it is  quite succulent at the time the new  begin to make their start in  life but. all things considered, it .will  pay to cut rather than delay. If i'or  any reason the second or third crop,  as the case, may b3, should make a  growth of five or six inches before  the preceding crop is removed, then  the cutter bar should be placed high  enough so that the buds of the new-  crop   wil   not   be   cut.     It   is   better  HOW   THE  (By William    Harper < Dean,    in the  Country Gentleman)  This is just a little story of' how a  man and his wife have solved big  problems; how a family of twelve is  getting the best things out of life at  less than cost; and why the man and  his wife have concluded that Bountiful, Utah, was wisely named.  Several years ago P- J. Sanders  moved with his family from Kansas to  Utah. Now Sanders has ten children  of his own' and some thirteen hundred  belonging to other people. You. see,  he's the big. smiling daddy of Utah's  boys' and girls' clubs. He was working with boys' and girls' industrial  clubs in Utah before a single canning  demonstration had been madte in that  state. Then he got the department of  agriculture's canning expert, O. H.  Benson, to give just one demonstration. That, was enough. Sanders has  taken care of canning in Davis county  ever since.  "Now, then," said Sanders to his  wife, "I've been studying balanced rations for farm animals long enough-  I'm going in for balanced rations for  this family ot ours. I'm showing the  club girls how it's done; let's organize  another little club and call it 'Bountiful' for luck. Let's practice what I'm  preaching."  They did, and just to demonstrate  how this family has solved the food  probelm, how it lives on fresh vegetables and spring chicken .during the  winter months, I'll give you Sanders'  own account of what they accomplished last year. Remember, he has a  very small place just on the edge of  town.  "My wife, daughter and myself took  charge of stocking the larder," said  Sanders. "Of course, some of the  youngsters helped when they were not  in school, but the three of us did most  SOLVED FfOR FAMILY OF TWELVE  or  included.    Total cost    52.70.

Anc  thirteen quarts o* small, tender ca_~  rots cost us thirty-nine cents. Tbe  store doesn't handle -carrots. FortF-  eight quarts of catsup cost us three  cents a quart, saving us $10.56. For  this catsup we used small tomatoes.,  which cost us nothing.  "Chili sauce is good, especially when  it costs just seventy-two cents for  seventy-four quarts. And there were  seventy-two quarts of preserved  plunis, peaches, and apricots; four  bushels .of apples for breakfast dishes:;  fifteen quarts of apple-pie fining, fifteen quarts for apple dumplings; an&  thirty-two quarts of Bartlett pears. On.  these things our saving amounted te*  about fifty per cent. Eighty-two quarts  of rhubarb cost us five cents a quart-  We saved $4.10 on this.  "We had kept forty spritlg cockerels,  until October, when we were offered  forty cents apiece for them. But int-  the glass jars they went���������:the whole  forty, if we had kept them until now  thsy would have eaten their heads o5  because of the high price of feed. But  instead of our feeding them they are  feeding us���������and incidentally saving  us sixteen dollars.  "In December, when quite a number  of our fruit jars were empty, we kille_  ! of the work.    Whan wre were through j three  bogs and canned in glass jars  and took inventory of our food supply j 215   pounds   of   their   meat���������sausage.  i-  on the first crop rather than risk interfering with the growth of tiie succeeding crop.  As. to the condition of the blo'om  or blossom, instances have been called to our attention where alfalfa has  reached the proper stage to cut without showing any signs of blooming-  Thus it can be easily understood how  a blunder might be made and one  cutting thereby lost if one waited until the customary one-tenth of the  plants were in blossom.  Don't Grow Weeds  Every Precaution Should be Taken to  Rid   Premises   of   Wesa's  The unsighrly weed patches about  the premises should be cut down before they seed to "make ranker crops  for next year. Such weeds as spring  up in the corners, nooks and uncultivated spots about the house and immediate .premises are offensive in'  more ways than that of being unsightly; tliey furnish hiding places for vermin.  Tho most expeditious way fo rid the  the premises of these weeds is to uso  the scythe where they can be thus  reached. Where the scythe cannot bo  utilized the pruning hook or boa may  bo brought, into service; or, with  gloved bunds to prevent, poisoning, the  wcod������ may be pulled up from the extreme nooks and corner-.  11', after being thus disposed of,  there in any coti_ldoi.iblo covering of  tlio woedn on tlio ground thoy should  bo removed from the yard or.promises,  as they will create a uliino tn decaying  and give out a disagreeable odor.

Sometimes  an irreverent youngster may he heard  to designate some one of conservative  tendencies as " a regular   old fossil,"  little knowing what he is talking about  or   to  how   beautiful  and   strange   a  child of nature he is referring. Rightly viewed, a fossil is a historical document carved hi .'tables;-of stone, of unimpeachable  veracity and  almost incredible age.    To him who has eyes  to see a fossil will Unfold a tale, so  interesting  that  few   other  histories  can vie with it, and so    old that it  laughs at such mere human attempts  as  the  pyramids,  or  the   palaces  of  Babylon,  as things of yesterday.    It  is as if nature bethought herself how  perishable all her work is; types vanish, specie and genera disappear; and  are as if they never had been, yet shall  something be saved for future generations to see what went before them.  Thinking    thus, nature, looks around  and makes a generous selection, here  a reptile eighty  feet in length, there  a- creature that only '."the  microscope  can reveal to mortal eyes, now a huge  tree trunk and then a filmy fern, a butterfly's wing, a horny crab, an egg, a  seed, or a delicate flower petal, nothing is too small or too great, if indeed nature is aware of such distinctions-  Then she sets to work, i.ot to copy  the model as a sculptor or a painter  might do'���������no, she patiently removes  the whole structure., grain hy grain,  atom by atom, here a little and there a  little, and as each molecule is remove!  she replaces the perishable substance  by something far more durable, using  whatever she has at hand���������lime, sand  ���������, or clay, to be afterwards baked and  pressed in her laboratory for many  thousand years. Each minute atom is  replaced by another of its own exact  form and size. This, process is carried  out faithfully throughout "the entire  structure, nothing is scamped, the  most delicate filament is exactly reproduced, every curve or angle is as clear  as in the original. When ail is finished, there is, let us say, an elegant ammonite or a dainty frond of seaweed,  as exact a copy of the original as any  photograph could produce, and saying  plainly to those who have ears to hear,  "Though you have found me at t__e _op  That is the Usual Condition  ef Persons Afflicted with  Anaemia  Anaemia  is   the  medical  term  for  poor,  . watery    blood.    It may  arise  from a variety of causes, such as lack  of  exercise,    hard study,  improperly  ventilated rooms or workshops, poor  digestion,  etc.    The  chief  symptoms  are    extreme pallor   of   the face and  gums,   rapid   breathing   and   palpitation of the heart after slight exertion,  headaches,  dizziness  and a tendency  to hysteria, swelling of the feet and  limbs  and  a  distaste   for  food.    All  these. symptoms may not be present,  but   any   of  them   indicate   anaemia  which    should    be    promptly treated  with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

No wonder the people of Poland and  Lithuania compare the German invasion to that of the Tartar hordes that  burned-and destroyed everything in  their path, only that the cultured Teutons go the savage Nomads of seven  hundred years ago one better by sending off to Germany everything worth  while.

The colt should have plenty of bone  and muscles-making food. A small ration of oats and wheat bran should be  given daily on pasture-  The foundation of bone and muscle  development must not be overlooked  nt this time. A colt that is neglected  at this time will never develop into  the horse that he might have mado.  It is found necessary to give the  young colt cow's milk, it should be. diluted about half with water, and sugar  added.  Maro's milk contains less solids and  mora sugar than cow's milk.

An Improved'Machine Gun  A new type ' of machine, gun, an  improvement on the 1904 model of  the Maxim gun made by Hiram  Maxim, Jr., of Hartford, Ct., has  been adopted by the United States  army. A model, which will be a  standard for_the army, has already  been constructed. This gun overcomes the difficulties of jamming experienced in both, the 1904 Maxim  and the Benet-Mercier machine gun  now used by the army, it being possible to fire 16,000 rounds without  jamming. This has been ���������demonstrated by elaborate tests made in  Texas. The new gun has already  been adopted by the English army  and is now being uped In the European war- In fact several improvements have been suggested as  a result of its use in the present war  and will ho incorporated in the new  model.    '  German   Torpedoes  According to the latast information, the newest German torpedoes  heve a range of from 1,000 io 1,500  yards. Instead of carrying 250Tb or  3001b of guncotton or'other high explosive, the instruments have" a  charge of but 1001b or less. Because  of the shorter range and lighter  weight, the ordinary intricate mechanism is simplified. Indeed, some of  the propelling parts necessary in the  greater^ torpedo are omitted. Probably  the most valuable saving is in the  time of construction. These torpedoes  are built and completely tested in five  months, while ten months or a year  icj    .parvyiiV-c. fT   tn   t\prfa/>f.  o_. lf5T5 5JT-''S,5J.Ti2*i^;   '���������TV-  strumeht.

Vast Empire  Has as.Vet "Been Little  Effected by the War  Despatches   from   Berlin,   carefully  framed to create the impression that  tliey originated in Russia, suggast that  th? people are tired of the war and are  likely to clamor for. peace if the Grand  Duke Nicholas is forced to  evacuate  Poland and fall back upon, the line of  the Bug.    It requires only a glance at  the    map of Russia to see that the  great"mass of the S'.i.v race are as remote from the sound of war's alarms  as they would be.if they dwelt on another planet.    The evacuation of all  of Poland, and the retention by tha  Germans of the portions of the provinces of Suwalki, Kovno and Courland  now held by them, would give the Germanic powers a little under three per  cent- of the area of Russia in Europe.  When, they cross the Bug in pursuit  of the Bear���������if they ever do���������the Germanic armies will still be 650 miles  from   Moscow,   and to reach it must  traverse the most aifficult country in  Europe.

Russia is not yet a democracy, whatever she may become as the result of  the changes war will inevitably bring,  and the little group of men in Petro-  grad who make war and peace on behalf of her swarming population arc  as determined to see the thing  through as Asquith or Kitchener. The  war was begun because Russia refused  to give up her small.Slav satellite, Serbia, to the unrestrained vengeance of  Austria-Hungary. It \v411 be continued  to a successful end becauso Russian  statesmen know that a Teuton triumph now .would make the Balkan  States the plaything of Germanic diplomacy, and the bridge across which  the Teuton would pass to the ubs3cs-  ison of a great empire in the Near  East.
