SEPTEMBER 24, 1915  -No. 36  n  Another Winter In  Trenches Taboo  Paddy Hope, one of Creston's half  dozen with the First Contingent, who  was reported off duty a couple of  months __*w>- t^covstth0, from the  effects fo a shrapnel wound, is hack  on the job again as fit a. ever, if one  may judge from a letter just received  by his wife at Marysville, from "Somewhere in France," August 22nd.  Along with many other Canadians  Paddy is hoping the First Contingent  -will not have to spend another winter  in the trenches.':' He thinks the Second or Third Contingents should have  that privilege while what few of the  First are left are put on garrison duty,  for instance.   But -here's the  letter;  We are present in the trenches and  as usual, lately, up to our necks in  mud, as yesterday it rained hard all  day and the trenches we are occupying at present time are pretty fair.  There has been some severe fighting  in the past just around here, and the  trenches have been knocked down by  shells and rebuilt, consequently bodies that- had been buried have been  disturbed, and the dug-outs are not  very sweet in places, also infested  with rats, which, however, gave us  some amusement killing them. Flies  and wasps are pretty bad also.  However, shall be going into billets  again tomorrow for _. few days-rest.  Wish as all of us do, that they  would let the first contingent home  now, and the 2nd take our place. We  have done 12 months aud put in a  hard winter carb|?isign..

Hj-1  the Canadians are the Indians, as we  do all sorts of tricks*on them this way.  And they generally seem to know  when the Canadians are in the front  of them. We practically feel sure  that they will never make an attack  while we are in the front line. It has  always happened this way since we  handled them on April 22nd, when  they broke thro' the French lines.  The Unea we hold now have been  lostby the French, twice retaken by  tho English and lost again by the Bng.  lish and again retaken, so yon see  some hard lighting hits been done  here. We are hoping the Germans  may try while we are .here, but doubt  it. We expect to remain in these  parts for some time to come, but have  a lot of marching to do every four or  live days.  We go   to   billets  march out five miles,  had our boots off for  nights.

Caterpillar Engine  Drops Into River  One of the massive caterpillar engines used by the Idaho Continental  Mining Co. of Porthill to haul ore  from the mine to Porthill, a distance  of some 20 miles, lies in several feet of  mud and water on the bank of the  Kootenai river as a result of a peculiar  accident which happened Tuesday  morning.  The caterpillar had been used to  haul a five ton motor from the mining  company's power plant to the railroad  station at Porthill, the motor requiring repairs which necessitated it being  pent to Spokane. It was being hauled  on a trailer and the trailer itself  weighed some two tons.  Since the new ferry boat at Porthill  was built the mining company has  been pulling Its ore trucks directly onto the boat. Tuesday morning it was  planned to pull tho trailer and motor  onto the ferry in the usual manner.  The ropoH with which tho ferry boat  was fastened to the shore had not  boen tied.8ocu.ely, however, and just  us the caterpillar engine wan to run  onto the boat tho ropes gave way and  tho boat drifted out into the river a  ways. Tho trailer and its load waa  left In the mud on tho brn.1. nnd the  cutlerpillav engine wiu. pulled ol. the  boat into the water.

A  few mouths after -the two bvothers,  unknown to each othor, were lu camp  side by side at Aba-sia, in Egypt- One  day in front of Slicpheard's Hotel,  Cairo, the younger brother, who in  twelve' years had grown beyond recognition, slapped his elder brother on  the shoulder and exclaimed, "Halloa,  Reggie! How are you?'' The elder  brother looked .hard at tho Australian  and then the brothers gripped hands.  Another extraordinary coincidence  comes from Wales. A Welshman and  his wife, anxious to adopt a child from  among the Belgian refugees, journeyed from Abercyuon to Swansea to  make their selection. On their arrival  they found that there were two young  children���������brother and sister���������who  particularly appealed to them and  who might bs adopted, but that one  could not be taken without the other,  lu the circumstances they decided to  take both.  As the children were being undressed to be put to bed after reaching  nome a locket was discovered hanging  round the little girl's neck. Inside the  locket was a photograph, which the  lady recognized as that of her own  sister, who had gone to Belgium as a  governess many years before, had  married and settled down in that  country, and who "now turned out to be  the mother of the little refugees. She  had- therefore unknowingly adopted  her own motherless nephew and  niece.  Captain E. Bruce Allnut, R-A.M.C,  who is serving in the Persian Gulf,  mentions another curious coinciden--;  which occurred recently. To quote bis  own words: "The enemy started shelling the patch of ground I was on. I  made for a little Lola in the ground  near for shelter, and saw somecne  else there, but threw myself down  with him, as there was just room.  When the hail of shells had burst  round us and for a moment we could  put our heads up, we both said, 'That  was a close shave!' -vrid simultaneously recognized each other.

Phenomenal  Growth of the  Dominion  In Past Few Years  In 1911 Canada had almost 500,000  more men than women.   The war will  consume a great part of this surplus.  There is evidence, however, that Canada will deal more and more liberally  with homesteaders in the future, and  this should bring in sturdy workers to  help make up the loss.    Annually she  has    allotted to settlers from five to  seven million acres of free land, but  today .the   premier of Saskatchewan  wants to see immigrants not only assigned to free lands but equipped with  seeds, farm implements, and good advice.   It will not be surprising if Canada  makes,  too,  a  determined  essay  to  keep  her  sons  and  daughters   at  home, to make the most of her great  resources, and    repair, as rapidly as  _aay be, her share of the loss brought  upon civilization,   by    the war of the  kaisers.   It is hard hoeing for Canada  just now.   War -contracts w-orth $156,-  000,000  have already  been  placed  in  Canada-,    however,    and these should  help to strat again  Ihe flow  of Canadian   prosperity.     According   to   tne  Kingston    (Ont.)  British Whig, "Canada has borrowed capital for municipal and industrial enterprises to such  an extent that the annual tax in interest  alone  is   about   $14,000,000.     Too  much attention has been given to civic  life and all that it implies,  and  hot  enough   attention   to   farm   life."     Of  late some towns have been obliged to  ask for time to meet interest due on  their   bonds���������something   unprecedented   in   the  Dominion.     But   whatever  Canada's   immediate   future   may   be,  the  larger  future  is  hers,  and  it  is  bright.   In no event can Canada prosper too richly for our satisfaction. We,  of the United States, must nfot only  appreciate     our   neighbor's   effective  patriotism,   but   must   strive   also   to  bring about even more friendly relations, and, in banking and commerce,  relations   increasingly ��������� profitable    ' j  bofli sets of Americans..    Neglect of  Canadian markets and Canadian sympathies forms one of the least creditable chapters in the history of American  protectionism;   but the  time  for  us to ignore or to patronize Canada���������  if there ever was  such  a  time���������has  now gone by.    As    the Economist ot  Chicago   observes   (after   giving   reasons) :  "Canada has been the phenomenon  of the western homi-phero in the past  ten or fifteen years. * * * In m  other part of the world has thera been  so much progress in recent years, nowhere else so much profit in the pursuit of ordinary occupations or the investment, of capital. Canada has made  good."���������Collier's.  The Remington Arms  Plants Nat F������r Sale  Manager   Says   That   No   Amount--e_  Money Would Induce Owners to  Dispose  of  Plants  During; the last few days there have  been very persistent rumors to the  effect that Germany was seeking tt>  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 Stool Company have both been  specifically named as objeptivs points  of the German efforts.  But it now appears that there is not  the slightest chance cf Germany securing a dollar's worth of interest in  either of these two great concerns.  Mr. Samuel P. Pryor, vice-president  and general manager of the Remington Arms-Union Metallic Cartridge  Company, was seen in regard to ths  persistent rumors that have lately  b.een in circulation, to the effect that  offers made by a foreign government  for the purchase of the properties of  that company were under consideration, and that ths auditions io the li-  ion and Bridgeport plants, which are  under construction, are intended to be  merely temporary and made only for  the performance of special contracts  entered into and are not intended for  the. permanent' uses of the company.  Mr. Pryor was very emphatic in asserting that the additions to the plants  did not constitute a mere temporary  expedient, but were largely made in  accordance >with the 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 the plants, nonvt  under construction, are of the most  modern type and of the most substantial,   durable and permanent character.

WORKING FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE COMMUNITY  Everv Farming District Should  Have  Some Kind of an Organiza  tion or Club, where Farmers can get Togethier to  the Many Problems which Confront Them  JL-riSCUSS  It is  profitable    to    run  a  well-organized   farm,  and  still  more  profit-  Able to run it in a community which  _s following the same general lines of  farming.     The .farmer  must  become  Sietter   acquainted   with     his   fellow-  farmer.   In order to do this he needs  some sort of an orgazination or club  In  which he  cari    discuss    with his  ferother  farmers  the  problems which  eonfront each of theni. He must not  considei   his  time  wasted    when  he  spends  it in. association"   with  tnose  who are in the same line of work, as  himself.    He  may  not get wages   in  dollars and'conts for the time he puts  in at the club, tut the understanding  of the problems of liis teUo-w-farmi_r  -which will come to him through this  association   will   be   indirectly     very  valuable.   The form of organization is  really   immaterial,   but   it   should   be  one  in  which the  women and  child-.  _���������__.  have  a  place,   for   farmers   and  .their  wives  have   always   worked   together  more  perhaps  than  men  and  women have in any other occupation.  There  is no question but that the  efficiency   of    the     average   country  school is too low. If the farmers will  get together and look upon the school  from    the  standpoint of making  the  school what it ought to be, they will  make changes which will lead to the'  improvement  of    the  work done     in  the school, as well as lessen the expense :per pupil.    It  is  not the  purpose  of this  article  to  outline a  definite plan for a change in our school  system,- but   the   farmer   should' get  ready to listen to plans of this kind.  There  is not a better place  than  at  s  meeting  of  his  club,   where' there  will   be   free   discussion, and   every  effort made to get at the facts.  The farmers' club can be used as  a. means of entertainment and as a  means of makin ��������� country lifs more  agreeable to the young people, and  thus keep those on the farm v. ho  should stay there- . The tendency  of  farmers to move from place to plase  can ba overcome to a large. extent  by having a real live farmers' organization in the community to overcome discontent. "Far-away pastures always look green" is"an ^old  saying in ivl-lcli. the. e is a good deal  of truth. It should be the definite  purpose of every farmers' club to  make the home pastures look green.  Then there is another subject in  which farmers have a real live interest, and that is the subject of  roads. Whether they are good, bad  or indifferent, he is interested in  them because there is no citizen  who uses the roads mora than he.  The farmer should realize that the  juilding of roads is in a transitory  state. Even with our latest road  laws, it can hardly be said that we  Lave taken up a definite system of  road building. Future laws on road  making should be uiscussed by the  farmer in bis club.  Perhaps the greatest effect of  organization of a farmers' club  the effect on the farmer himself,  The   farmer  needs  parliamentary    law  in  a  good   farmers'  to  rub    up  against  He     needs     to  individual man.  the training in  that he will get  club- He needs  hi;  the  is  the  fellow-farmer,  learn that farming today is not the  same as it was thirty years ago.  The farmer has always been a good  hand at putting on' brakes, but the  time ha_ come when he should talre  tHe initiative and do something- to  build up his community in place of  hindering some one else from doing  anyt-ting.  1'hare is nothing equal to a regular  organization to help a man boost for  his community. He can and should  join his farmers' club, and then work  for the development of his <______unity and make it the best community  in the state.���������Montreal Family Herald.  Mental Equipment  J5lind Boy Who Made Good  Technical Knowledge is Essential to  the Successful Farmer  If there is any one thing that the  average man moving to a new district  does really believe, it is that success  lies in the country and not in himself-  Jf there is any one thing that he does  not believe in, it is in his own mental  equipment for ths task that lies before him. The great mass of farmers, whether we rind tham in a new  or old country, do not as yet value  very much, the making and finishing  of the farmer himself. A farm, boy  and his father would never think of  taking hold of a trade or profession  -without some years of mental and  practical preparation.  Any farmer would laugh at us if we *,  advocated the putting of boys into  the practice of law or medicine, or of  a. trade, without a course of special  training for the work that lies ahea_  of him. , "That's brain work," they  will say. But farmin_ isn't brain  work? "No, no." Go to any of our  agricultural colleges and see the  amount of brain work that is required  to understand so common a thing as  the soil. Note the outlay, of chemistry and the study of soil physics that  is required. Then remember that no  man can rightly understand the soil  and its action in growing plants without some knowledge of chemistry, and  the more the bettor.  From chemists, and men who study  the soil from that standpoint, has  come all the improved knowledge we  Lave as to fertilizer.- and soil regeneration. That is brain work of .-.  mighty high order. _-  Wouldn't it help a young fanner  greatly if he knew how to analyze his  n-oil? Tho chemist knows, and ho  freely tolls the farmer what he knows.  Put tho average farmer doe_ not believe him, for he knows too little of  chemistry to understand, and no man  naturally will believe a thing and accept It when ho does not undorstanu  it.

Blindness  on  All  The   Heavy    Handicap   of  Only  Made   Him   Press  the Harder  Stick to your dream, boy. Let nothing swerve you from the path, that  leads upward toward the fulfillment  of your life's  ambition.  You will meet with difficulties and  discouragements, but when you do.  just think of the m; n, Herreshoff, the  oat builder, who died the other day  in Rhode Island. In his life you ought  to find inspiration enough to lift you  over any obstacle.  When John B. Herreshoff was a boy  his r.mbition wa_ to design and build  tho fastest boats in the world. He  became blind while yet a boy. That  would have discouraged any ordinary  boy, for how could a blind man da-  sign a model that he could not see?  But Herreshoff was no ordinary boy.  lie stuck to his dream. The heavy  handicap of blindness only made him  press on all the harder.

Labor  The  Mian on the Farm is a True Patriot  in  Doing  His  Best to  Promote Production  The unemployment problem is 'still  existent in tne cities and the scarcity  of laboryis still complained of in rural  districts. The qr.c.tioi. is how can the  one be reconciled with tha other, and  the one brought to  supply what the  other needs  and    the  other to take  what the one possesses in excess* After the war tnere may be a rush, of  immigration, but that cannot be for a  years  at least.    We must,  therefo; e,  make the  best  of the  situation,  and  try to get along with what we have.  A Toronto paper has been?, publishing  letters  from a  number  of men  who  have  accepted   positions    on     farms.  T.'iey all, without exception, speak in  good 'terms of their experience/ The  pay   is   not  lavish,   but    the   food   is  good  and  abundant,    the    bed  clean  and life in    the open brings, a keen  appetite for meals and a pleasant desire for sound  refreshing sleep.  One  manA writes:     "I have tramped miles  and miles after deer and dropped too  exhausted to eat or sleep. Here when  I'm hungry I have a^good meal to go  to' and when I;m tired there is a nice  clean bed waiting.    You know how I  hated   to  break    from  the  city,  but  now .Mary   and  I  are   botti   glad   wa*  came.    You should see. her with her  skirt tucked up, bustling to and from  the  barns.    It's the pastoral life for  us.    Men    who wyander about citie.-,  idle and hungry, while there are opportunities   like    this    offering,     are  crazy."  Perhaps readers of this may think  the writer of the foregoing has- hit  upon a - soft spot. It is more than  likely, however, that he is possessed  oi that Mark Tapleyism that should  accompany all desires for work. That  hopefulness that leads to success and,  at tbfis period of time, begets some  fulfilment of the scriptural injunction  to bear one another's burdens. Every  man, yes and every woman, who goes  to work in this strain of spirit, and to  all it is possible, is helping to take the  handicap' off somebody else's shoulders, and is contributing to the welfare alike of his own country and the  empire. He is uplifting his fellow-  man, he is assisting in the clothing  nnd f6Gi������in_ of *.jis countrymen, mayos  his townsmen at the front, and he is  setting au example that cannot be too  ��������� extensively folic wed. He is doing  j his share, toward reconciling the  wants of tha city with the needs of  of the country. He is also prabably  prolonging his own life as well as  making matters easier for others.  Above all, ; he is proving himself a  true patriot in earnestly doing his  best to promote production.���������Toronto  Globe.  Tim-ii. f.  _L <!J_-_.I*.a_.���������_-*  Bjr&zs.

The great doubt has been lifted  from the heart of France. The accomplishment of this was the grandest  deed of French arms in al_ the year  of Armageddon which began a year  ago In history the feat will be  known as the victory of the Battle of  the Marne.  . Not only did this victory probably;  decide the fate bf France geographically, but its influence uy-on the spirit of.-he country"was, and still is, in-  ci.I_md.ble. For notwithstanding tha  "'solidarity" accomplished instantly  Andsppntaneously on August 1.. the  ay -tne general mobilization order  was posted, a great doubt weighed  like lead on the hearts of those who  marched away singing as well as  those who stayed behind and wept.  'Everybody remembered 1870. Tbe  old^tTranco-Prussian war and the horrible nightmare of blunders, y The  young had heard the story time and  again. The French, in: 1870; were totally unprepared for war, were badly  equipped and badly led. Their plans  lacked cohesion. Generals fought 5 -  dependently one of the other. Treascn  was laid at the door of one and altogether it was a terrible mess in  which the poor soldiers never had the  slightest chance notwithstanding a  courage which wrung from even the  Prussians the exclamation: "Oh, what  brave fellows!"  So,   when  the   soldiers   started   for  the war,  each  one bore in his  heart  a burden  heavier than  the knapsack  on his back:  Woulc, history repeat itself?    Would   1914   be   another  1870?  Was   France   better     prepared  ti__e?     Would   she   be   batter  Were her generals equal to the  task ahead?    If not, then    **���������*    *  They dare not let their minds' run  beyond  this   point.    Individually    the  most intelligent soldiers in the world,  thay have the other curse-and blessing of civilization, an imagination, so  they sang and quit thinking; they joked with one anothey, never admitting  even to themselves���������let alone to their  comrades���������that the doubt was there.  Back home the hearts of mothers,  fathers,, wives, sisters and sweethearts  were troubled by the same unexpressed   dread   lest   1914   prove   another  1870.    And if such should prove to bs  the case' "*    *    *  They, too, smiled and talke.d cfieer-  fully of a new and irresistible France.  All knew, those who remained waiting as well as those who went to war,  that for forty-four years Germany had  been living, eating, sleeping, drinking,  dreaming war, and that this war had  Stemmed the German Invasion   T '  come. What about France? Who was  General Joffre? Who were the other  generals? Newspapers had but recently declared that France was.unprepared. V. as this true? And aii V.exu  ou being troubled in secret lest  b ranee -should again prove unready.  After vague news reached Paris  that General Joffre was in retreat  from;-.Charleroi, the 1870 bugaboo  loomed, bigger and* bigger. Mauf,'eu5rs  was invested-, Lille was occupied.  Then there came silent, tense'days,  without any real' news. The government moved to j Bordeaux, the Ger-  mans were now iii Maubeuge, Com-  piegne, Soissons. Rheims; Chalons,  Epernay, , lameyjlle, Verdun and  Nancy were seriously menaced. Paris,  it- seemed, was doomed, -and Uhlans  were reported to be at the gates- The  worst fears of soldiers and home-oiks  seemed realized; it looked like another 1870, only  worse.       .  Still there was no panic. There was  the exodus of thousands of people  who objected to living in Paris duria-j-  a German occupation, but the city was  calm. France's "sacred union" was  firm. But the doubt, instilled into the  mind of France by 1870, was there,  galling and real. The people could not  know that General Joffre was later to  be called a genius. They could only  wonder if his retreat was strategy or  incompetency. The consorship was  strict and they -had few facts to base  opinion o'n. They did not knowthe battle of the Marns was being fought, nor  that Joffre had pevformed, by winning  a victory there, a sort of eighth v.p_.  der of the world. Yet this was true.  ', General Bonnal said of this battle:  "This is the first time to nay knowledge that a great *_.rmy, retreating  and fighting at the same time, and for  eight days in succession, was able to  furnish the. effort by itself to transform  instantly its long and painful retreat  into an irresistibie offensive."  Yet that is what the French armv  was able to do. Through his victory  a new France was born. The great  doubt aws lifted, the 1'870 bugahbo  banished. The people W--re given ccn=  fi_oh.ee in the army, the army in itself.  Henceforth, whatever may happen  to the Frtnch soldier, he will refuse  to be discouraged. He can advance,  retreat or doggedly hold what he has  won, any or all, with tenacity and  good cheer. He has faith in hia officers and Caith in himself. He knows  the war may.be long, but he .'grins  and grits his teeth:'"'."  "We'll get 'em at last!" he says.  The  ghost  of 1870  has  been   laid.  this  n'eat  Successful Woman Farmer  A   Clever     Missouri     Woman     Wins  Fame   ac  a   Farmer  Missouri's first woman to become a  professional farmer has blazed the  way for hundreds of her sex. Her example has been followed by so many  other women they are now organized  under the title of the Missouri Women Farmers' club. Miss .F. Pearle  Mitchell of Ilochepurt, president, is  the first professional woman farmer  In the state.  Born on a -20-acre farm in Boone  county, 3he grew i.p to love the soil  and took a keen interest in her father's work: Later the farm became  hers by inheritance and for seventeen  years she has owned und managed it.  First she made a scientific study of  soils, grains und animal husbandry.  She is frequetnly called the "Hog  Woman of Missouri," because of the  large number of hoys sho marketed.  In addition to her farm interests,  Miss Mitchell ia interested iu every  form of woman's activities. She also  is secretary of thoi National Women  Farm \Managers'   association,   secre-  ������������������y of the Missouri Homo Makers'  conference, vice-president of the Missouri Rural Life conference, regent  of tho Columbia chapter, Daughters of  1812, and chairman of the industrial  nnd social conditions department r *  tho Missouri Federation of Women's  cliiba, besides holoTng a number of  minor offices.

About the only direction in  which the Valley is making any  tangible demonstration of its willingness to further patriotic effort  is through the Bed Cross Auxiliary  and in such a worthy cause all  petty social differences or other real  or imaginary (mostly the latter we  fancy) grievances should be temporarily, at any rate, forgotten, and  a long pull and a strong pull and  a pull altogether made to keep the  output of Red Cross supplies up to  the high standard a Valley full of  loyal workers such as we have here  should maintain.  Supplies were never more urgently needed than at present. The  Red Cross is now responsible for  supplies for close to 8,000 beds in  the Canadian hospitals in England  while the latest bulletin from Red  Croes headquarters is that the supply of cigarettes, sox, shirts, bandages and dressings cannot be overdone.  "The Crisis in B.C-." has broken  out again���������in several directions.  Attorney General Bowser's recently  delivered address in reply to the  famous, or infamous, leaflet has got  into circulation in book form; Sir  Richard McBride has taken to  writing letters to some eastern  papers that had commented favorably on ''The Crisis" and, of course,  these editors have replied to Sir  Richard's strictures, and not altogether in flattering terms.  And now fche ministers who have  been held ur> to ridicule on account-  of them giving ''The Crisis" their  5if^u���������v* enGorsai/ioti, \\\ session assembled last week, passed this,  among other resolutions:  " After having carefully considered  all the answers and explanations given  on behalf of the government, we are  more than ever convinced (if the  necessity of the investigation, for  which we appeal. In all these attempted replies the main facts set  forth in the pamphlet, ���������* ihe Crisis in  B.C." have remained entirely untouched."  Discussing  this  same  topic last  ���������freek  it seems  to  us  the   Sloean  Record rung the bell when it says:  "The   ease   now   stands:    Certain  charges were made in "Tbe Crisis"  against the government.    Hon. W.  J.   Bowser  denies  them.     Certain  charges  were  made  in   Manitoba  against  Sir Redmond Roblin and  his associates.    Sir  Roblin  denied  them.

It is  not sufficient that those statements  should be denied by members of the  government,  it   is  necessary   that  the statements  be  conclusively refuted.      This   can   only   be   done  through investigation by an impartial commission.

Intion similar to the Alberta Lnpun-  Act,   the  government  is liable to  follow Alberta's example and refuse  to  shorten   the hours   for   selling  until after the vote, at least.  Quire  a  large  number, too, are  being heard from to the effect  that that owing to the duinoss prevailing in the hotel business it  might just be the part of wisdom,  to go slow until it is seen how the  new fangled Saskatchewan and  Alberta systems work out before  following up their lead.  There is also a feeling that at  at this critical stage in commercia-  affairs it would be unwise to put  more or less completely out of business an industry that is estimated  to employ 5,400 hands with a  monthly payroll of $303,726, representing a capital in^/estment of  over $20,000,000. In view of the  slow trade prevailing iu the hotel  business, in common with other  lines, the average citizen will need  a lot of stirring np before he will  go into the campaign under a full  head of steam���������unless a measure of  compensation is a feature of the  legislation.  In view of the apathy of the B.C.  citizen, in many cases, in matters of  this sort the "drys" should be prepared for strenuous campaigning at  this time, particularly. Any province with a cosmopolitan population such as B.C. boasts must have  a brand of prohibition tliat prohibits the use of intoxicants by rich  and poor alike, with ample workable machinery for enforcing it,  and iCwell-deitned public opinion to  insist on its impartial enforcement.  Without these qualifications, particularly the latter, a weU-rofiulated  lioonso system is very muoh to be  preferred.  ought to make Minneapolis and  Mil  waukee quite friendly=  J.

CERTIFICATE OF IMPROVEMENT  Editor Review:  Sib,���������At a meeting of the directors  of the Creston Fruit Growers Union  Saturday night your leading article in  your issue of Sept. 17th, headed, "The  Winslow Letter," was a subject of  private discussion and-it was unanimously felt that the tone of it was exceedingly uncalled for and did not at  all represent the feelings of a number  of your readers.  Probably the directors of the Fruit  Growers Union are in a position to  know and appreciate more fully the  work Mr. "Winslow has done for the  Valley and the good feeling he has for  it.

Speaking personally, I have known  and appreciate Mr. Win-low's energy  ever since I came here and no one  coming in contact with him couidheip  but be struck by the interest he took  in the Valley.  I feel sure that your article was dictated by an excess of zeal for the good  of the Valfeey, but I also feel that the  comments could have been made quite  as forcibly-**.and more in accordance-  with good taste���������and probably would  have been if it had been possible for  you to have seen your article in the  cold light of print before it was published.  Reading Mr. Winslow's letter I fail  to see any "cheap sarcasm," but presume you niean the suggestion of a  guarantee from Creston, but feel sure  Mr. Winslow did hot' niean it to be  taken sarcastically, but as a purely  business proposition.  I think, however, that the expression 'cheap sax'easm? might be applied  more truly to your remark upon Mi'.  "Winslow's name.  In closing I feel bound to thank you  for the improvement  you have made  in _______ Review, and for the dignified  way in which, up to the present issue,  you have conducted it.

Talking the  matter over with M.  Lindley we  believe that  Creston   might   well   put  up $100-which    would guarantee an  addition of approximately four  fares.  I am writing Grand Forks to the same  effect.   If they are agreeable only forty Prairie people would be necessary  to secure the special and every additional one above that Avonbd add  in  cutting down the actual  contribution  from Grand Forks and yourself.

"  I have had the pleasure of talking*  this matter over very thoroughly with  Mr. A. Lindley of the .Creston Fruit  Growers Union and write it with his  -concurrence.  I regret to say that the trip to the  fruit districts is developing very slowly. The Board of Trade here are  working vigorously on it and are  meeting with very slow response. It  has not, however, been decided to drop  it for the paesenfc. It seems impossible  now to change the general dates of  the trip and in that case it seems that  Croston, Nelson and Grand Forks  would bo passed through without  stopping.  Lot me dispose first of your points  with regard to stop-'.ivcr of regular  train.  Mr. II. W. Brodie Jof the C.P.P.  has ab-olulcly refused to consider a  two hour stop-over of the regular  train at Creston. You aro probably  aware that the general travelling public objects strenuously to any delay.  The plan you propose for stopping  over from the regular train and  travelling up the lake at night has one  objection. The Dominion Government will not permit of the carrying  of piiHH-ngo.B on thoir lake barges even*  in tho sleeping cars. This, of course is  a wise and proper regulation but in  this particular case it operates against  the plan you propose. I might state  that wo hud already endeavored to  get this ai rangement on lho Okanagan Lake but it was absolutely impossible.  As to the cost of the trip, I agree  with you that it is a comparatively inexpensive trip but tho people of Alberta must know their own minds and  p uracil hotter than anyone else does  and thoy seem to havo considerable  difficulty in financing it. However by  a good deal of i.eraplng wc might manage a special tiaiu. In that case the  ���������special will arrive in Oro-ton at 11. a.m.  or earlier If wished, and thoy could go  <,t������ IIto   liMii.. in  lltit i.ni.nitii- )tv   llu*     ���������������������..  w _  gular train.

"Where  are  "Didn't you go  the groceries?"'  "I am going out to form a rural  club," she replied and with that she  lied the baby's bonnet and asked the  husband to carry his daughter to the  carriage.  But he, manlike, still persisted in  knowing more about this new, unexpected project of his wife's, so he  asked: "What's the idea, Mary?  Haven't you enough to do without  adding more to your work?"  Her answer silenced him for the  time at least: "John, look here. We  have been married three years. I have  told you all I know and you have told  mc all you know, so I'm going to form  a  club "and   learn  something new."  Such was the beginning of a rural  club in Wisconsin.

You will  find our answer in all the little rural  clubs that are now. scattered over the  states���������each, one making life more interesting for its members and their  families.  The women, in them seem to feel  that one of the greatest things that  result from their club meetings is a  closer and dearer relationship among  neighbors. -_As one member expresses it: "Perhaps the greatest  thing we have accomplished has "been  the unifying c������ the members into a,  sisterhood of very dear friends."

And this is particularly true of  the country woman. Any woman who  wants a club hard enough can form  one. Nineteen years ago a few country women living near Marshalltown,  Iowa, felt the need of a little sociability and met very informally at one another's homes. Gradually the idea of  a club with studies grew, until now  these women have a thoroughly successful, practical and useful club.  One of the best and most satisfactory ways to go about forming a club  is to co-operata with the woman's club  in town. There should he greater cooperation between town and countrywomen, and there is no better place to  start than in the organization of your  club. The town women, with their  greater facilities for study and library work and with their past experience, can be a great source of help  to you.  One valuable source of information  for country women is the state agricultural college. A card dropped to  the agricultural college of the state  in which you liva will bring, free of  charge, any pamphlets, leaflets, programme outlines and so on, that it  may have. Frequently an extension  worker can be obtained to organize  or address .a club at the state's expense. The club that makes such a  request usually pays carfare nnd incidental expenses, such as entertainment, while the instructor Is In town.  Sometimes the teae.h?r, who has  charge of your country school will be  glad to act us n louder In getting the  club under way. The schoolhouse  .makes nn admirable meeting place.  Many women prefer it to meeting ut  one another'!- homes. Consult the  rural teacher before advancing fur in  to meet?  A  club   offers   relaxation   from the  daily routine of work- It satisfies the  hunger   of   many   clever   women for  more  mental ��������� work.    The  hands are  _. i   .,~        "U,  n line      Ci-_..    uiutu      l.Ug.  uuo.v,  for something a. little unusual, a little  different  from  the  dail������ work.    The  club-with its varied program answers  this desire.    The woman who once in  two  weeks  dr'esses her prettiest and  drives to some friend's house to meet  ten or fifteen friends has a little variety, a little spice added to her life.  As one rural-club pioneer writes me:  "Country  women have not the opportunities to attend educational lectures,   concerts   and     entertainments  that town women have,    and a well-  conducted club with a serious, varied  course   of  study  fills  the  fieed  to  a  great extent. Country women are not  distracted by the multitude of activities _ihat assail  town  women  all the  time.    Hence  they  are  more  responsive to club work.    The meetings relieve  the  monotony    of  a  somewhat  quiet,   existence,  and   for  many  busy  women furnish the only chance to see  and visit good neighbors with any frequency and regularity." '  Anything that unites neighbors socially and mentally, that offers relaxation from daily work, that breaks the  monotony and that satisfies the hunger for broader things of life, in to  he' commended.

'���������'   ;'  Mr. Asquith stated in the house of  commons that the total casualties in  ail ranks of the. French and Mediterranean Expeditionary Forces ii pto  May 31' Were 258,608. He gaved-tails  showing how many officers and how  many men ."of, other .ranks" Atiicd been  killed, were .wounded; and were missing  up   to  that  date.  In its evening'edition of the following day, namely the 10th ult,  the Tagliche Rundschau, of Berlin,  published a telegram from its special  correspondent at The Hague in which  it was stated that "Asquith has announced in parliament that the total  of the English losses in France is 1,-  585,409, of whom 10,955 are officers!"  The Tagliche Rundschau, which is  read chiefly in army and naval circles  printed this "news" in prominent  type, and rendered it still more conspicuous by placing over it the heading, "A Million and a Half English  Losses."  In the first place, the German public is informed that the losses were  sustained in France, whereas Mr.  Asquith stated clearly that these were  the casualties "in the French and  Mediterranean Expeditionary Forces."  In the second place the Berlin newspaper adds 1,327,340 to the number  of the casualties in other ranks mentioned .by Mr. Asquith. It gives correctly "the -number of men missing,  namely 52,617; but it increases to a  fabulous degree the number of killed  and wounded.

Operate     Oil-Burning  Locomotives   in   Mountain  Section  Mr-   Morley   Donaldson,   vice-president of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,  announces that the installation  of   oil-burning   locomotives     on     the  mountain section of the line has now  been,   .ompleted.     These  locomotives  aro of the most modern type and were  placed in service for passenger traffic.    They are operating from Jasper  to  Prince  Rupert,  over 719 miles  of  main line.  Especial interest attaches to the installation of this class of motive  power, as it marks the first use of oil  burners on an extensive scale in Canada. Great oil storage tanks have  been erected at various. points along  the* line for supplying locomotives  with the necessary fuel. With the  operation of these locomotives there  is a -complete absence of the discomforts which sometimes arise from the  use of coal with its tendency to give  off dust and grit.   -   The section of the liite on which  these locomotives are laeing used  passes .through the finest scenic territory in the Canadian Rockies and  the absence of coal dust, it is believed, will add to the pleasure of the  journey.  The Grand Trunk Pacific Steamships "Prince George" and "Prince  Rupert." which operate from the  pacific terminal of the lino at Prince  Rupert to Victoria, Vancouver and  Seattle, are also oil burners, and this  gives the Grand Trunk Pacific nearly  1,500 miles of rail and wat<--i* route  on which this form of fuel only la  used.  oi .tips'to keep up the spirits of the  German public, and to convince the  people that--Germany is gaining brilliant victories on all sides. The public will believe this statement, as it  has believed all the statements issued  by the authorities in which the repeated capture, of hundreds of thousands of Russian soldiers and of untold numbers of-gunsHias been announced. \P,  It has been trained to have no  opinion of its own in military matters,  and to . accept blindly every }statement made by the military authorities. '  About a month ago,, when the German armies achieved their. fir3t important successes in Galicia, the reports that circulated throughout  Germany were ho extravagant that an  authoritative statement was made in  tha matter. It transpired that, the  number of Russian prisoners taken  had been multiplied in some cases by  ten, in others, and even in Berlin, by  twenty!  The authorities acknowledged" that  practically the same report of prisoners taken had been received from  both the German and the Austrian  headquarters, and that the two totals had been added together before  the report was issued to the newspapers!  being secona  m    command  to Joffre  himself.  Foch is one of the revelations of  the war. It Was at the battles of the  Marne and Yser that his qualities as  a tactician were revealed. "Find out  the weak spot of your enemy and deliver your blow there.'" he once said  to his staff. "But suppose, general,"  replied an officer, "that the enemy has  no weak spot?" If the enemy has no  weak ; spot," returned General Foch,  "make one."  There you have the secret of the  sxiccess of-Geherat Ferdinand Foch iu'  the present war. He is a man who  makes the enemy do what he wants  them to do, . and has . consequently  earned the - reputation of being the  greatest strategist in Europe. Foch  is the hero of the Marne, the man who  perceived that there must-be a gap  between the Prussian Guard and the  Saxon army, and who gathered  enough artillery to force the Prussians and the Saxons, now separated,  to retreat. He is also the man who  did much to prevent the Germans getting through to Calais, for he was in  general control of the successful flight  made by the French, British and Belgians, an denabled Joffre to say, on  a certain date, "It is now our time to  turn."  Foch and Joffre were born within  about three month's of one another,  the former on October 2, 1851, and  Joffre on January 12, 1852. In 1870  Foch served as a subaltern- against the  Germans, as did Joffre, and after the  war both bf them began to win recognition as soldiers of brains, Foch be^  ing given a commission as artillery  captain when he was twenty-six. .Later,  he became professor of tactics in the  i_coIe de Guerre, with the titie of commandant, where he remained for five  years, afterwards winning rapid advancement.  Cool, cautious, taciturn, Foch is a  man whom Germany fears; but he is  1 _-_-_r __-.

Co-operation  originated in. the dairy countries of  Europe, and it has worked wonders  in revolutionizing the conditions' of  the farmers in the formerly impoverished lands of Holland, Denmark and  the Channel Islands.  Organization is essential to the  welfare of the American farmers.  This has been proved by the co-operative' elevator. the co-operative  creamery,. and the co-operative cow-  testing associations.  The co-operative cow-testing associations are revealing some wonderful  facts to the farmers and dairymen  who'yhave become members; InAfact,  the results are so surprising to the  owners of he herds under test that  every cow these men'see is looked  upon with suspicion. They immediately begin to calculate on the cow's  ability at the pail and wonder if her ���������  real value is hidden beneath the veil  .o������ skin and flesh.  If anyone doubts the value of the  cow-testing association"he needs but  have a talk with the members. In  one of the'.Iowa Testing associations  a 750-pound butter cow was discovered. This record was made on a  renter's farm, where conditions were  by no means ideal. The herd of  which this cow is a member receives  a good ration and is given the beat  possible care under the conditions.  The herd average during the past  year has been 9,697 pounds of milk  and 341.9 pounds of fat. Accurate  records kept on the feed show that  the needs of the cows were studied  very closely. The average cost of  feed per cow during the year was  $4612 and the net profit $72.22.  The herd at the present time consists mainly of grade Holsteins and  a few purev breds. A pure bred sire  has been used for the past six years  and the records mentioned are the result of a consistent system of breeding up. When this work wa3 started the herd consisted of twelve eows  of promiscuous breeding. .The unprofitable animals were eliminated as  soon as they were apprehended and  the best cows kept for foundation  stock.  In addition to the excellent records  made, the herd was gradually increased in number until today it consists of more than forty head of large,  strong and- productive grade Holsteins.  .. _.... -..

Predictions of Present War That Have  Been Partly Fulfilled  Like most events of world-wide interest, the present war has not been  without its prophets.    In    a peculiar  nense it is true that    "the    best of  prophets of the future is the past.''  The   war    preparations    throughout  Europe called for none ot the  gifts  of the seer to foretell how the race of  armaments-    would    end.    Germany,  whose cauldron of "hell's ..broth" was  stirred by the Nietzsches and Bern-  hardis, had no need to invoke the aid  of crystal gazers  and  necromancers.  Since the wur was declared a number *, con-iim^r-eliminatTon  of prophecies have bean strikingly ful-  lllled. The most interesting of those  is that of the French priest ot Are,  who foretold the two Prussian invasions of France. After the debacle of  1870 the second part of the priest's  prophecy was remembered'* and published in Paris, but no one took it seriously. " His prec-ietion of the second  invasion has been partly ftilfllled:  "The enemy will again return and destroy as they come. Effective roBist-  anco will not bo made. They will be  allowed to advance, and after that  their comruunlcatious will be cut, and  thoy will suffer great loss. They will  retreat towards their own country. Thoy will bo followed, and few  will reach their goal."  Another prophecy that has come to  light since tho outbreak bf war was  contained  In  "Moore's Almauuc," an  annual publication that has a considerable voguo throughout Ireland because of Its table of forecasts. In his  "Voices oC lhu Clu._" for July, 101*1,  the author foretold thnt naval affulrs  would  "como to the fore," nnd that  Franco would bo the scene of much  unrest., in,, horoscope for tho summer  rtii-'rl. v   I'm*----...'.-   "RorlniiH   financial  difficulties"  and* "heavy  expenditure  in military matters."���������Toronto Globe.
