The superiority of Alice Siding  spuds over the product of other Valley centres is evidenced in the offer of  $10 a ton a local rancher refused last  week. The market price is about $11.  What about this, Duck Creek.  The operations of the Soldiers Ladies Aid are' hampered owing to a  shortage of wool for knitting. A  couple of pairs of sox have been sent  to the local boys at the front and  several pairs turned in to the Creston  Red Cross depot.  Earl Pease was at Duck Creek last  week, doing some fall ploughing on  the Johnson ranch.  Stace Smith had a letter from his  son, Jack, who is in the trenches tit.  Eranco, on Monday.

It it* true we get too much tobacco,  and some of it goes to maste at times,  though I never saw any cigarettes go  to waste, but still we get enough of  them.

That is the situation in plain language- Tiie only thing that can bring  about peace without the attainment  of ths object each country is lighting  for is exhaustion, or a decisive beating. The character of the warfare  and the employment of such vast  numbers of troops preclude the possibility of a single engagement decisive in its nature. The struggle may,  and will, ba marked by many great  individual conflicts, but the chief factor will be the endurance of the belligerents: the nation, or combination of  nations, with the superior staying  power will emerge victorious.  It is up to us all to aid in the result  by every possible conservation of our  resources. The Germans have eliminated waste, and are thereby that  much better prepared to continue the  struggle; without this genius for organizing    the    Austro-German  forces   1 ..      _>..]n..

There are countless ways wherein  we might profitably emulate the enemy.- The matter of alcoholic consumption is one of these. It is undeniable that money spent for liquor  ordinarily brings no return of usefulness to the consumer or purchaser.  So far as concerns the consumer the  money is completely wasted, its expenditure resulting merely in the gratification of an appetite. The government gets a certain tax from the manufacture and sale of liquor, and this is  often advanced as an economic argument, but the remainder of the cost  is purely a drain on the resources of  the individual, and thtis also the nation, without any useful return to  either.  Would not. the present be an auspicious time'to begin a movement to  impress upon all the advantages from  a personal and a patriotic standpoint  of abstaining from liquor? The sheer  waste of money in Canada in the purchase and consumption of liquor, to  say nothing of its other undeniable effects, at a time when every good  citizen should be straining every  nerve to conserve the resources of the  country is lamentable. Do we like  our beverage better than our country?  Do wre care less for Canada than the  average German cares for the fatherland?���������Ottawa  Citizen.

Here are a  Jew of bis chief points:  We are short of coal in a great  crisis.  We are suffering from the patriotism of the miner. A quarter of a million of them have gone into the fighting line.  Coal is everything for us. Our 350,-  000 casualties were inflicted by German coal.  Parties   have   disappeared   for   the  time being. There are tw*o new parties  now���������optimists   and     pessimists���������the  Blue  Sky  School and the  Grey  Sky  . School.  In my opinion the sky is - mottled.  The events in the east mean that a  larger share than ever of the burden  of the struggle will be cast upon the  shoulders of England.  "Victory means the fate of freedom  for ages to come. Freedom implies  the right to chirk, for others to defend.    Is that fair?  After praising the miner as a worker, a politician, a singer, a footballer,  a soldier, the minister of munitions  went on to say*.  We are short of coal to run the  country in a great crisis. The demand for coal is greater than ever.  The supply of labor is less than ever.  In  times   of  peace     coal    is    the  most important element in the industrial life  of the. country.  The  blood   grades,    and  of  all  ���������which- courses   through  the  veins   of i^jqj-.-.   enough  ti  industry in this  country is made by ������  distilled coal. In peace and in war  King Coal is the Daramount lord of  industry. It enters ir.to every article  of consumption and of utility.  It is our real international coinage. We buy goods abroad, food and  raw material. We pay not in gold,  we pay in coal. We pay in diamonds,  except that they are black, and not  in gold.  Coal brings meat and bread to us  from the Argentine. It pays a.e_o__  thi counter there for it out of its  own Docket. We cannot do without  coal. ". In war it is life for us " and  death for our foes- It not merely  fetches and carries for us*, it makes  the material and the machinery which  it transports.  It   bends,   it   molds,     it   fills   tho  weapons of War.    Steam means coal.  the sky. The sky is mottled. There  are some people who can see nothing but the black menace in the sky,  and they imagine it shows a lack of  foresight to look at the wide  stretches of blue still smiling in the  hea.rens.  There are some, on the other hand,  who fix their gaze rigidly on the  clear azure above the seas.' They  deem it disloyal to take any note  of the dark thunder clouds that are  rolling up in the east and the grey  sky which is hanging so heavily over  the devoted plains of Flanders and  of France.  But sky staring is. not enough for  us. We have to put forth all our  strength. The events in the east,  whatever they mean, portend that;  they mean that a larger share than  ever of the burden of this struggle  will be cast upon the shoulders of  Britain. Do not shrink from it. We  must pay the price of victory if we  mean to get it-  Victory has its price. It is no use  calling attention to the cost we have  incurred���������hundreds of thousands of  casualties and millions of men gathered together to go into the battlefield, thousands of millions of expenditure which we are incurring.  The one question is, whether it is  enough.     It  is   no    use    trying    to  Soldiers PHing^ Up Savings  Most of Those at Front Are Leaving  Pay on Credit  Canadian soldiers at the front, including those who are now prisoners  of war in Germany, are piling up quite  a tidy little savings account with the  Canadian government. The pay allowance to the Canadians is in most  cas..- being held to their credit at  the London paymaster's office, as the  men at the front have little opportunity to spend money while in the war  zone, and prefer to leave all but a  small pc_*tion of it to their credit in  London. According to advices received  at the militia department from London, a considerable portion'of this accumulated pay was recently invested,  on the request of the soldiers, in bonds  sold by the British government in connection with  the recent war loan.  The Canadian prisoners of war in  Germany are also accumulating a  government credit at the rate uf  about 75 cents per day. The pay allowance of those men from the government is being 'continued while  they are prisoners, but it is impracticable to forward it to them in Germany, and the monthly amount due  them is beins regularly placed to  their credit, less the shilling per day  or $1.75 per week, which is being  forwarded through the Britsh war  office through arrangement with the  c_������j_v!jv__".vjr    ViJN__'iC_i^_-iv/r.

Coal  is the most terrible of enemies, and  it is the most potent of friends. You  read that terrible casualty list given  out by the prime minister the other  day. Three hundred and fifty thousand British soldiers. They were  casualties inflicted by German coal,  by the Westphalian miner, working  in co-operation with the Prussian  engineer���������without stint, without reserve, wtihout regulation, putting  their strength \ at the disposal of  their Fatherland*  Coal did that.

Business as  usual, enjoyment as usual, fashions,  lockouts, strikes, ca-canny, sprees,  all as usual. Wages must go up,  profits must also improve, but prices  must at all costs be kept down-  Freedom after all implies the right  to shirks Freedom implies the right  for you to enjoy and for others to  defend you. Is that freedom? War  i_ like a fever, a deadly fever, and  the rules which are applicable in  health are utterly unsuited to a fever.  Restraint- whicli wou_d be irksome,  stupid and unnecessary when a man  is healthy, are essential to save his  life in a fever.  What is the use of the patient saying, "I must have meat as usual*  drink as usual, in fact,* more than  usual, because I .am thirstier than  usual. I have, a high temperature,  so I am more parched than usual;  there is a greater strain on my  strength, so I really ought to have  more than usual. If I want to go out  why shol-ld I be confined to that  little bed?   Freedom   above    all."  "But you die." "Ah," he cays. "It  is more glorious to die a free man  than to live in bondage." Let Britain  be beaten and discredited and dishonored, but let no man say that any  Briton during the war was ever  forced to do anything for his country  except that which was pleasing in his  qwn sight. Ah, victory is not on  that road.  The trenches are not all In Flanders; every pit is a trench in this war,  a labyrinth of trenches; every workshop is a rampart, every yard which  can turn out the munitions of war is  a fortress; picks, shovels, lathes,  hammers, they are f.s much the weapons of this great waiw of European  liberty as tho bayonet, tho rlllo nnd  Granaries   in   Southern   Russia  loaded With Grain  Grain dealers'   and    cereal farmers  will be interested in a report recently  made    from    Petrograd by Commercial Attache Baker.    He says that the  granaries   of   estates   and   farms   in  Southern Russia are overloaded with  grain   left   over   from  the   last   crop.  The grain can be moved only within  the    limits    of the same district, not  from one district to another, the object   of   such restriction is to prevent  speculation.    In    the  section  named  growers of wheat and rye have  not  been subjected to any embarrassment  in  consequence of not be__"��������� _t  ship    from   Odessa   this   year.    The  demand from Russia itself has proved  unexpectedly large.    The banks have  assisted farmers and estate owners to  hold  unsold  portions   of their grain.  There has been no need for sacrifice  sales, and the prices paid have been  satisfactory.   If the route through the  Dardanelles   should   be   opened,   probably  no   sudden    cr  heavy oversea  export   movement from Odessa would  develop.     The   necessity   of    holding  back large supplies as food, together  with the fact that the freight service  is largely given up to military work,  would make any rapid  movement of:  wheat to Odessa unlikely, and as the  financial position of   Russia   makes it  desirable that existing high prices for  grain    should    be fairly well upheld,  since grain is Russia's best cash asset  the government   woul'.    probably discourage    any    sudden Jr.eavy  export  movement. such as might tend  seriously    to  depres.  the  world's wiieat  markets.  Had Admiral Mahan lived to see the *  beginning of the second year of the  world war he would have found in the  events ot che^ first year the most striking vindication yet recorded of the in-,  fluence of sea powe.* upon history. .  Except for the British navy, Germany today would be master of the  world. Germany's marvellous preparedness, combined with her unparalleled military resources, gave the Teutonic allies a commanding advantage  that all the rest- of Europe could not  have withstood had land warfare alone  been able to determine the result.  But for the British domination of the  seas the war would be over and civilization prostrate before triumphant  German militarism.  What has been accomplished by  " ������ b  gle*  achievement. There has been no decisive battle. Not a single dreadnought has yet been in action except  against land defences, or has sighted  a hostile flag at sea. None the less  the work "of the British navy as a  whole is the one decisive factor in the'  war.  German commerce has disappeared  from the ocean, and hundreds of thousands of tons of German ships are  rusting at their piers. Except in a  clandestine fashion Germany is cut off  from all trade wtih the outside world  and compelled to manufacture for herself whatever she needs for military  or civil purposes. Only her Baltic  ports -are open. One by one her colonies have dropped away, and month  by month her isolation is more complete. The military consequences of  that isolation will become more and  more important as the war proceeds.  Since the battle cruiser engagement  in the North Sea, in which the Biucher  b_i^C"o was destroyed, British sea power is  !.'"'mi! no longer openly challenged by Germany, which is satisfied to wage a furtive submarine warfare " against unarmed merchant ships and keep Y05"1  Tirpitz's navy snugly hidden in the  Kiel Canal beyond the range of British  United States consul-general at Ber_,-British sea power has been carried  Iin. The war office is forwarding a through without a singleFconspicuous  shilling per day to British soldiers  who are prisoners in Germany, and it  was not thought wise to allow a  larger sum to the Canadian fellow-  prisoners for spending money.  Over-  guns. In the midst of this sniping tha  Britsh navy continues to do its main  work without interruption, while the  losses sustained by Britsh shipping  through submarine warfare are without real importance as affecting the  outcome of the wa:\  British and French commerce continues because the Germans cannot  command the sea. The Allies have the  manufacturing resources of the world  to draw upon. More than a million  soidiers have been landed in Francs  under naval convoy .without the loss  of a. single transport British colonial  troops are transported from every  quarter of the globe as freely as in  times of peace. The operations at the  Dardanelles have been made possible  only by the Britsh navy, and but for  the British navy Russia would not be  able to obtain the supplies of ammunition, and guns without which no further resistance could be made to-ths  German advances. Most of the splendid courage and devotion of the  French people in "this conflict would  have been futile had not the British  navy enabled the French government  to supply the equipment in which the  army was so fatally deficient at the  beginning of the war.  Much has been made by captious  critics of the failure of the British  fleet to "capture or destroy" the German fleet as it was ordered to do when  the war began. But the German fleet  might as well-have been captured or  destroyed for all the service it has  been able to render to the empire and  to German arms. A fleet which is so  completely overmatched that to invito  battle is to invite destruction is practically non-existent for all the "purposes to which sea power can be put  ia time of war.  Whether the British naval officers  have done all they could or less than  they should, the fact remains that  British sea power has saved the Allies  from defeat, and that if Germany is  ____���������-������sy crus_^u,. it is British sea power that will have determined the issue.  ���������New York "World.

Some     Systematic   Effort   Should   Be  Made to  Grapple   Successfully  With the  Problem ^  The loss to the farmer from weeds  generally is obvious enough to the  most superficial observer. Any weed  takes up as much space in a field, and  draws to itself as much of the sustenance afforded by the cultivated soil, as  a grain stalk does, and it represents,  therefore, a dead or unrequited loss to  the owner o������ the crop. One of the distinguishing marks of good as contrasted with poor farming is the comparative absence of weeds, and a large  part of the time and attention of students in agricultural colleges is devoted  to learning how to grapple successfully with this obstacle to success in  farming.  No practical farmer needs to be informed that certain weeds are specially hard to eradicate, because they  may be propagated by means of underground stems as woll as seeds; among  theso are tho woll known Canada sow  thistle, the couch grass, and tho perennial sow thistle. r.x-.-pt hy frequent  dbfurbancc hy plough or disk harrow  ina dry, hot spell, it ia extremely difficult to kill couch grass, because a  small fragment of tho underground  stem at onco becomes a new plant.  Tho sumo Is truo of tho Canada thistle,  which has the additional fault of being  cnpablo of producing intensa Irritation  by Its prickles. *'  The perennial row thistle has become ti very formidable pest in Western Canada. It haa thoro devastated  a largo amount of fortllo land, and it  bids fair to c.auso losses running woll  up into millions of doll-vs, unlet*,:*.  Homo meant- of checking its ravage-tare found and applied. It is very productive of need-, which ripen just before tho grain Is ready to cut, and it  Annual Loss to Farmers by Lightning  is Very Large  The annual loss inflicted on farmers by lightning is in -the aggregate  very large, and it is a matter of the  utmost imnortance to them to ascertain definitely whether this loss is preventable. For all practical purposes,  the efforts to discover or invent some  means of safeguarding isolated buildings date from the time when Benjamin Franklin discovered the identity  of electricity and lightning, more than  a century and a half ago.  Franklin was the first to suggest  the,.practicability of protecting building's from lightning by erecting on  their highest points iron conductoi'3 -  communicating with the ground. His  theory on the subject was all right,  but detects in construction made the  lightning rodt, so ineffective and often  dangerous, that they were for a long  time utterly, and not unreasonably,  discredited. There is now good reason to believe that, as Professor  Day shows, a trustworthy system of  protection by means of metal rod con  Be  Practical     Information     Should  Available   For the Young   -/en  Who   Wish  to   Turn  to  Farming  Tliere will be a movement towards  the land during the next few years,  and many young men will be investing  their available resources in intelligence, brawn and money in a piece of  land.  To the average man who has n..  been through the mill, tha problem of  acquiring the Ian.; and the course to  follow in order to make the investment pay, is a knotty one.  Take the yor-ig man with .-. good  knowledge of agriculturo who has  irom one thousand to two thousand  dolliirs in the bank and who decides to*  go out for himself on. a half section.  A thousand dollars is a neat sum hi  cash these clays, but it dwindles quickly when spread over .he purchase of  land, implements, horses and seed. So  does twice that sum, but it must be admitted   that   tha'.. amount     of     cash  ductors has been devised, and may be* should, in the nature of things, give  inexpensively utilized.  There is good sense in the suggestion that in most cases, the conducting rod being itself perfect, the farmer  should  himself  affix  it  to  his  house  or barn.    The directions given in th ;  published bulletins  are easily followed, and tho  reasons  for tho various  (.tops aro'easily understood. Tho two  points to bo lcept In view are that the  rod  should  be absolutely continuous,  and that tho lower end should be sunk  sufficiently  deep   in   tho     ground   to  reach    permanently moist earth, and  tho moister the better. A few years  ago, when tho tower of the Toronto  city hall was struck by lightning, the  Globe published a theory put forward  by an ordinary farmer with a bont for  investigation.    He muintuincd the Ci-  rcction taken by the electric current  indicated  that  a water  course  must  have passed from northwest to southeast  under  the  site   of   tlio   present  building,  and maintained  tlmt, to insure     perfect safety  for the hall  .'*  would not be difficult to obtiiin prut.-,  tlcal   results   from   its   application.���������  Toronto Globe.

If the statements in  The Crisis are true the government  should resign; if untrue, Moses and  his apostles should be run out of  the province."  A recent pamphlet issue.! by the  Dominion department of agriculture  dealing with the poultry industry  in Canada shows that Canadians  are developing a grand appetite for  the product of the hen.  According to this leaflet the consumption of eggs between 1891 and  1901 was about two dozen per head  of population, while between 1901  and 1911 it had risen to four dozen  per capita.  The prices, too, of poultry and  eggs have been high. The demand  has been keen, and even in spite of  the high prices, consumption has  continued to increase faster than  production. In fact, since 1909,  Canada, an agricultural country,  has held the unenviable position of  importing each year more eggb than  were exported.  The number of hens and chickens  on farms in Canada increased from  sixteen and one-half millions in  1901 to twenty-nine and a half  millions in 1911���������an increase of  nearly thirteen millions, or approximately 78A pei" cent.

Pow of Creston addressed the gathering on '���������The Movement for prohibition in British Columbia."  The talk wus on the more recent  development of tho temperance movement, "Undoubtedly," he 'said, "the  war has had a direct influence on the  change of popular temper toward the  liquor traiiio.

Its manufacture was entirely  in the hands of the government and  in ref using to make and sell it the  imperial treasury suffered to the extent of $250,000,000 annually. Since  ^ the "No More Vodka" era had come  the savings of the people had increased  from 16 or 20 million a year to 30 million a month. and the increased. productivity of tiie Russian labor forces  was estimated at anywhere from 30 to  50 pei* cent.  In contrast to these examples Britain does not stand in a*:very good  light,  Mr. Pow declai-ed, quoting the  -.__nr-_.Y.i-  of T.1n_rrl  _.-������-.T'_r<-.   which snafr.-V---  ished the world, "We are fighting  Germany, Austria, and drink, and the  greatest of these three deadly foes is  drink." Premier Asquith was quoted  as saying "that drink had decreased  the efficiency of the army 15 per cent.  However recently new legislation had  been passed, rum rations have been  discontinued, and altogether a brighter day is dawning for Great Britain.  Taking up the situation in Canada  the speaker called attention to the  fact that Prince Edward Island has  h. en '���������dry" for fifteen years. Excepting the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia  was all under prohibition. New  Brunswick has 9 counties ont of 15  aud 2 cities out of 3 under one form or  other of prohibition. Hotel bars are  open only from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and  sale of drink to soldiers in uniform is  everywhere prohibited. Quebec has  859 out of 1,168 municipalities free of  the licensed sale of drink. Ontario  has 580 out of 842 exempt. Manitoba  has 51 out of 15i mnnicipolitios "dry."  Saskatchewan has abolished every  bar, liquor store and club license and  the sale of liquor is now through  government-operated despensaries of  which only 25 have boon found necessary to date.

(Continued)  That night ihe sun set aruid 'lowering clouds. With a sailor's weather  sense, t was sure that we should have  ii storm. Pimball and Glibby sensed it  too. We could see them making  things snug alow aud aloft. They were  good enough seamen, as tar as that  goes. The- wind, it it came, would he  off shore, and there would be no danger of the ship being driven upon our  reef, but. there were islands to leeward, which they seemed to have tor-  gotten,  which  1'remembered.  I explained all this to my Utile mis-  U*e_. <as -I made tilings sung for the  night. She would be perfectly protected by the overhang ot the cliff and the  overturned boat, and 1 told her, although   i   left  her  alone  iti   the  boat.  that the same overhang of the cliff  would protect __e from, the wind and  the rain if the storm broke. Aud so  nftsr prayers again and a long look  seaward we went to sleep.  A tout midnight, so far as 1 could  judge. I was awakened- The storm  broke wtih all the suddenness anu intensity of the tropics. Such peais of  thunder and sue:: dashes of lightning  I have never witnessed, although I had  heen in many storms throughout the  a feeling of awe that we stood Cor the j  first time within the vast cup at the i  foot of the inner    stairs,    completely I  shut out from the avotUI by the great j  towering  rampart o������ rock which  on- i  tirely inclosed us.   1 had never felt so [  far removed from the world as then. ;  Outside, of course, the limitless ocean  i ran beyond the barrier reef, but  one  j could   follow  it unto  the   dim,   far-off  I distance with his vision.    Within the  cup  the glance fell    upon    the rocky  wall on every hand,    it    was almost  like being in a prison for all its tropic  loveliness.  Beneath the trees and quite invisible from above, a paved road or path,  barely wide enough for four to walk  abreast upon, extended straight across  the island to the hillock in the middle,  while smaller paths seemed to follow  the course of the wails oa eithvi' side.  The ground was gently rolling, and  the road, though overgrown in places  and badly broken, was in much better  condition than the broader path on the  top of the wall. 1 suppose the fact  that it was sheltered protected it. We  passed along it for a utile and a half  without much difficulty.  Finally we landed at the foot of the  hillock. As I had observed from the  wail it was grass grown and tree clad.  Indeed, we should have been hard put  to it to have ascended it, so dense was  the vegtation. had it not been for the  fact that the path was continued  the  hill  constantly  mounting.  I around  | Where it ran the somewhat shallow  I earth had been cut away on the hill-  | side and the rock surface laid bare. Of  ! courso this path was frightfully over-  \ grown.  ; We ascended with the utmost care.  I I finally drew my little mistress, her  * face bedewed as well as my own, up  ��������� the last steep ascent and stood upon  he crest.  We  could now see why the top of  vel  when   we  _ ! first looked at it from the wall.

The Carthaginians  prohibited  drinking in  the  army  :;00   years   before  the  Christian  era.    Draco, in his laws, made drunkenness a capital offense.

Kansas is simply protecting  its people from the arch enemy of  human happiness. Kansas homes are  protected from e.n infinitely worse  enemy to society than the burglar.  Prohibition has simply muzzled a  brute that is ten thousand times more  vicious than a mad dog. It has merely cut out a useless expense that was  more burdensome on the people than  ail of the state and county taxes combined.''

The second day after  it began the tempest finally blew itself  out, although the great surging seas  still broke tremendously over the barrier reef and the spray shot a score of  feet or more above the crests of the  highest waves. It was only the reflex  ot the storm, however, for during the  night the wind had subdued into a  gentle breeze.  When     we   scanned   the   saa   next  morning there was, of course, no sign  of tho ship.

We had  neither chart nor record left, we had  .wt our memories to trust to, but we  were both agreed that the cave lay in  the inner wall and that the parchment  said it was the central one of three  adjacent  openings   which     gave     entrance  to the treasure chamber. And  we could get a bearing on it from the  -c.ptral hill. ,  Now I had noticed that tho coral  wall both on the outer'and inner sides  was honeycombed with openings, rifts,  Hssures and caves which, hy the way,  were more frequent and deeper on the  inside face, why I know not. Wo  s'.liould havo been compelled painfully  and laboriously to search the whole  face of the cliff in its extent of fifteen  mile-- or so, but for the .further direction of tlio parchment.

Although the accusations are made  by a government which violates not  only international laws but the customary principles of humanity, the  general staff feels bound to refute  these accusations, declaring that tiie  German  communique is a lie.  Our sailors destroy Turkish ships  because they transport war material,  coal and petrol. On every occasion  they  adopt all measures to save the  Purchasers of Railway or Steamship  Tickets Cannot Have War Tax  Refunded  A matter of importance to the public and the railways has been settled  by the government. -A nice point has  been raised as to the possibility of  refund of the war tax in case a person should change his or her mind in  regard to the contemplated trip by  train or boat. If the railways insisted upon the tax in such cases of  changed intention, it was altogether  likely that the public would set them  down as extortioners.  Accordingly the railways submitted  the  questions to    the    government���������  what should be done in case unused  tickets presented for refund to agent  before  the train  starts;   to  agent  or  general office after train departs; the  same or some following day;   in the  case of passenger tickets; in the case  of sleeping car tickets; in the case of  parlor   car   tickets;     in   the   case   of  steamship tickets.    The answer which  the railways received was as follows:  There can be no refund of the tax  under    any circumstances.    Once the  ticket is sold    and the tax collected,  it is as though it were in the Domin-  inion coffers and nothing but an act  of parliament can get it. out again. It  was explained by the Dominion authorities  that  in  order to  prevent  the  confusion that would arise    in applying    literally    the     millions    of  tax  stamps that would have been required on railway tickets and the consequent difficulties whicli  would    have  ensued owing to delay in affixing and  cancellation  of  stamps,   the    present  method has been adopted, and, that as  none   of   the   public   could   have   reasonably expected a refund oh a stamp  that had been  affixed  and  cancelled,  if ticket were refunded upon, so also  no refund may be expected wherever  a  tax    had  been  collected,    and  the  ticket unusued and    refunded    upon.  In other words, the    act of purchase  of the ticket in accordance with the  ia.. Act is a completed    transaction  so far as the collection of the tax is  concerned and under no circumstances  as   the   law  now  stands   could   it  be  refunded.    To make a refund of the  tax possible a special act would have  to be passed by parliament.

Well, the lr.el top of the hillock  was in shape a parallelogram, in extent perhaps an acre and a half. It  was the most, curious place I have  ever seen. In the middle of it, with its  four sides parallel to the sides of the  plateau was a huge stone platform  or altar perhaps 100 feet long by 70  feet wide. Completely surrounding  this altar, but some distance away  from it so as to make an aisle perhaps  ten tp.et in width, rose a line of huge  statues carved, like those at the foot  of the stairs, into the semblance of  monstrous human faces. Not one. of  them was like another. There was  variation in human faces. AU were  ugly, but all were lifelike and were  singularly enough European.  and in    these  cases    the  crews are  always captured first.  In several cases the sailors prefer  to regain the shore by swimming in  order to avoid capture, and they are-  never fired at, and all those who  surrender -are taken on hoard the  warships and sent to Sebastopol.  This rule is followed even when  the Turkish ships, pretending that  they wish to surrender, open fire on  our submarines. Special lists are  made of the prisoners captured, and  they prove that not a single man of  the captured crews has been left to  his fate. All the prisoners every  time express their satisfaction for  jLhe humane treatment accorded  them.  Shooting Cures Nervousness  Mrs. Ada Schilling of San Jose,  crack shotgun shot, recently broke  more than 90 birds out of a possible  100 at the three days' trapshoot tournament held at Venice.  Tills is conceded a remarkable average, says the San Francisco Daily  News. Mrs. Schilling will soon go to  the mountains to bag some game���������big  and small. ��������� Some of her best shooting  has been done on hunting trips; target shooting only keeps her in practice. Mrs. Schilling began her career  as a markswornen with a rifle at inanimate targets; shotgun shooting  was taken up later and she now declares it to be the better sport. "Using  a shotgun gives a woman self confidence," declares Mrs. Schiling; "it  quickens tha action of the eye' and  brings every muscle into play. It is a  positive cure for nervousness."

Movement Launched That Will. Mean  a Saying of Money to People  of the West  In the little town of Dugaid,. Man.,  some short while ago, a movement  was launched in a very quiet and -_a-  ostentatious way that will probably  spread over the entire length and  breadth of Western Canada, revolutionizing hundreds and thousands of  western homes. No publicity was  courted at the time, and the proceeding in question although of the very  highest importance nearly escaped th������  attention o������ the press altogether.  To  give   a" brief narrative    of the  event,  and to  describe  it just  as  it  happened, we might say that on a certain Saturday afternoon rigs and automobiles  were  converging   on  Dugaltl  just as if it was the first day of the  country fair.    By four o'clock in the  commodious with    hall    that    stands  face to face wtih the village church,  about sixty  or seventy ladies,  members of the Economic    Society    had  gathered.    A little after four o'clock  Mrs. McBeath, the well known woman  farmer of Headin-gly, who is always tithe front in any movement calculated  to improve the domestic conditions of  this  country,  was introduced  to  the  meeting,   and   explained   that   at   the  request   of  the   Agricultural   College  she was in attendance to give some  particulars   of   new     and    up-to-date  methods   of   home  canning,  such   as  were now being so  extensively used  throughout the  United States.    Mrs-  McBeath then explained how about 50  per cent, of the vegetable products of  Western Canada were thrown on the  waste  heap  every  year,   for  lack  of  some reliable method of preserving it  She proceeded to demonstrate how i.  was now possible for every farmer's  wife in fact every householder in the  country   to   can   inexpensively   every  kind of vegetable that can he grown.  She road a number of time tables for  example showing how in an hour or  two   it was a simple task to can hundreds of pounds' worth of sweet corn,  beans, peas, tomatoes, beets, carrots,  in fact every variety of 'vegetable and  put theni away for future use, as well  as all kinds of fruits.   Some glass jars  containing corn and peas, etc., pickled  last fall were passed around, and it  was observed tha', they were as sweet  and fresh in color and taste as at the  hour when they were gathered from  the stalk.  Considerable enthusiasm was arous*  ed among the members of the Economic Society, and in view of the fact  that the entire canning outfits, particulars of which may be had jfroro.  Prof. Lee of the Manitoba Agricultural  College, cost only a few dollars, many  present signified their intention of installing one of these time saving and  money saving apparatus, and of thus  economizing the products of their o\yn  gardens, and cutting down living expenses.  Mr. Newton delivered a very pointed and interesting address, in which  he   pointed   out  that  if  such   outfits  were used  throughout the  west,  the  actual productive powers.of the country would be increased 50 per cent,  and fruit and vegetables now thrown  away and  left to  rot,  would  in_tead  be preserved and would    represent a  saving  of hundreds of thousands ot  dollars. Mr. Newton amused the meeting by telling how he bought a large  number of turkeys in the winter, anil  just when the frost, was breaking tip  in tho  spring he  found he  had lifty  birds   left.     He   could   not   eat   fifty  birds, he explained, in a week or ten.  days, so he decided to can them. This  he did, and Mr. Newton is still eating  turkey  ns    fresh  and    delicious    as  though it had boen killed and drosse*-  expressly   for. his  Christmas   dinner.  ni?   fact   Is   Interesting  because   it  shows  that practically  anything  can  be canned by the outfits advocated by  the Agricultural College.

Him an .ntsrsst  in the Business  It doesn't seem right that the boys  should so often feel that they must  leave* home for profitable and attractive employment. In most other lines  of business it is the hope of the business man to see his sons follow in the  same business and take it over when  he leaves it. Plans are made to that  end, and the boy is trained up to a  thorough understanding of the business. Of course it doesn't alwars'  work out as planned, but every effort  is made by the parent in most cases.  On too many farms every energy  seems to be directed toward driving  the boy away from the farm as soon  as he is old enough to get away. "Very  often his father wants him to stay,  urges and sometimes commands him  to stay. But it is too late. The boy  1_as never been made to feel that he  is a partner in the business of that  farm. Nothing is ever talked over  with him; nothing is ever explained.  And it isn't any wonder he proceeds  to hike. Tliere are exceptions to this  unfortunate method. Letters written  on neatly printed farm stationery  sometimes come, and on it' the managers of the farm are gravelv announced as "A. B. C. & Son."

It serves to  show how Germany develops the  scientific side of her efforts as the war  proceeds.  "The incendiary fire bombs, which  contain some composition producing  sufficient heat to start a flame in anything that will burn, are now familiar.  The Germans have invented a method  of using something similar in the form  of, or combined with,, shrapnel.  ..'. "Reports say any man struck by  shrapnel from these things is terribly  burned, the burns often proving fatal,  even when only a limb is struck.  "Presumably phosphorus enters into  the consumption of this new weapon,  as also do certain poisonous bullets."  Minard's  Liniment Curea  Dandruff.  Freedom for the  Poles  In addressing the reichstag, the  German chancellor. Von Bethmann-  Hollweg, referred to the recent victories of the kaiser's armies in Russian Poland. In. part he said: "The  present occupation of the Polish east  frontier is the beginning of an evolution which will lead the country, freed  from the Russian yoke, towards a  brighter future, in whicn she will be  able to develop and cultivate her national character. Further German and  Austrian victories will free the Balkan  nations from oppression, and make  possible the principle of 'the Balkans  for the Balkan nations.'" Were Germany to be the final victor in this  world-conflict sh3 would emancipate  the Poles and the Balkan peoples just  as she has lifted the peoples of Alsace-Lorraine and Belgium to constitutional freedom.

Winter Dairying Pays  Milk    Production     is  Greatest When  Cows  Freshen   in   Fall  There are so many advantages in  having dairy cows- * come fresh in  the fall, while the disadvantages are  but very few, if any, that one wonders why so little progress is being  made in that direction. Those who  have silos, and no one can afford to  dairy without a silo in these days of  high priced land, should be especially  anxious to have at least two-thirds of  their cows calve in the fall of the  year.  September is a good month to have  the cows freshen. If grass is short at  that time it can be supplemented  with silage and the necessary grain,,  and thus the flow of milk brought  up to the largest amount possible.  Later, with an abundance of succulent feed at hand, the milk flow can  easily be maintained throughout the  winter months. Then, by .the time  grass-comes and the cows have given  milk for seven or eight months and  the flow tends to diminish, it will be  revived when the cows are turned  on good pasture, while in July and  August when the flies are" bad and  conditions are against a liberal flow  of milk, the cows are either dry or  very soon will be.  In other words, the cow that  calves in the fall has a much better  opportunity to produce a large  amount of milk and butterfat in a  season than the one that freshens in  the spring. This is readily appreciated upon a little reflection. Suppose a cow freshens in May when  pastures are good. She gives a large  flow of milk during May and June,  first because feed is abundant, and  second because she has recently  freshened. But no sooner has she  started than the hot months of July  and .August with flies and perhaps  dried, up pastures are upon her and  the milk flow immediately drops-  When copier weather returns and  grass revives there will be a slight  increase in the yield of milk, but a  full flow normal for that period cannot be obtained till the cow has  calved again. This means that a .  herd of low producing cows must be  carried through the winter months,  with profits greatly reduced, but the  labor remaining practically the same.  It does not take quite so long to  milk a cow giving a small amount  of milk as one producing a large  flow, but it requires just as much  labor to feed and care for a low  producer as for the highest producer  in the world, and the task of doing  the other chores is the same for all  kinds of cows.  It is safe to say that a given cow  will produce twenty per cent, more  milk and butterfat when she calves  in the fall than when she comes  fresh in the spring. This increase in  production should in itself be enough  to cause any dairyman to at least  have the majority of his cows freshen  in the fall, but there are more factors favoring the practice. One of  these is the higher price which dairy  products command in winter than  in summer. Another is the cheaper  labor. Labor js cheapest during the  period when mill, and butter bring  the highest prices on the market.  Then, too, the farmer himself can  devote more time to~\the cows in  winter when farm work is reduced  to a minimum and his time is not  so valuable. The first three months  after spring opens are the busiest  in the whole year for the farmer,  just when cows that calve in the  spring need the most attention. The  inevitable result is more or les3 neglect, and neglect early in the lactation period is mighty expensive busl-  T1GSS  When it comes to raising skim  milk calves, those born in the fall  soon learn to eat grain and therefore grow faster than those that are  dropped just as grass comes and do  not lca������*n to eat grain before extreme  heat and millions of flies begin to  make life miserable for them. Then,  too, fall calves, if intended for the  dairy, can be bred to drop their first  calves in the fall as two year olds.���������-  Montreal Family Herald.

City Wife More Lonesome  Than Farm Woman  Author    Declares     Monotonous  Lives  Abound   in   Nineteenth   Ward.  The writer of early American life in  the middle west and far west emphasizes the hardships suffered by the  women pioneers who accompanied  -their husbands on the plunge into  the "wilderness," and points to the  wearying monotony of life led by women on the frontiers.  The student of agricultural society  calls attention to the  dreary life  ot  women   whose   fa/nier  husbands   are  unable to give them relief from the  a ; monotony of work on the farm.  And the traveller across the deserts  which lie just east of the Pacific coast  pities the women who must pass their  lives in the monotony of sand -nd sun  and does not marvel when he is told  that many become "eccentric" and  some actually insane under the terrific strain. *  But according to Lucille- M. Win-  dette, who has just completed a series  of investigations into the life of th.  working class, there are women living  within the boundaries of the second  largest city in the country whose lives  are just as dreary, just as monotonous,  just as maddening as the lives of the  pioneer women, the women of the  farm, and the women of the desert.  Miss Windette's investigations were  confined chiefly to the Nineteenth  ward whore conditions were found typical of those in many other parts of  Chicago. In her report,, which i3 entitled "Life and -Work Among Our  Neighbors," she reviews iu detail the  various phases of life among the working people.  Here are some of her conclusions:  "No thoughtful person can fail to l*.e  struck by the monotony which characterizes the life of most married  women in tho working class. This is  less marked in the more typical slum  districts, where the life is. lived more  in common. But the women ani little  better than shut-ins, who live in these  streets and spend the whole day indoors, when their husbands are at  work.  "The young mother who has all t!*.o  care of a growing family of children,  lias little opportunity for visiting  about. She may step into hor neighbor's house, or meet others in the yarj  or on the front doorctop to gossip, but  rarely does sho go farther, and if -litis able to.get away for a holidny or an  evening at the movies sho must usually take tho baby with her.  "Edi.cr.tion, an u rule so li-iiiU*.  among both Jewish and Italian women, sadly narrows tholr own ie-  sources, and in tne deadening monotony of their liven, thoso women Uo  often  become hopeless drudges.
