I stretched out my hand to her and brought her  through after me. From some distant  crevice the air came to us- We could  feel it blow upon us. and it was  sweet; also 1 could hear water babbling over rocks in the distance. It  was a little damp in the cave, perhaps  because of that. There was little  light, however, save that cast by the  lantern. I could not see the farther  wall.  There   were   perhaps  a  do/.ou  large  boxes.   1 opened th.m all.   Some were ;  quite empty, wiih a liulo pile of dust!  in them and a few shreds of color here |  and   there     which,   -ndicaled   silk  had ]  beeu packed in them. There were also '.  broken    barrels    around    which    still j  i clung  a   faint  odor of  spices.

The casket, was locked.  ; I crumbled the wood in my hands, but  ; could not. open the lock.    The edge of  [ my ax. however, proved a potent key,  '. and at last  forced it apart,  and as 1  | did so out foil a little heap pf what I  I judged to be precious stones.    There  j were green, red. bine and white ones,  ������������������ among them many pearls sadly discol-  j ored and valueless.    The stones glte-  . toned   with  an  almost living energy.  1 My mistress was    more familiar with  i these things than 1. and I presented a  handful to her.

Rope as Strong as Steei  Of tho double ropes suitable for  power transmission a manila rope is  just as strong as a solid steel bar,  weight for weight, though only about  I'-'.i per cent, as strong per equal  cross-section. Leather, on the other  hand, is only about i. per cent, as  strong as a steel bar of equal cross-  section, aud less than 40 \ ���������: cent- as  strong per equal weight of material.  says an expert writing in the current.  Power.  Records show that rope, manufactured from the fibre of palms was used  iu Egypt long before the days of  Christianity. Such ropes were found in  the tombs of Beni-Ilassan (3000 B.C.)  and on the walls of these same tombs  are illustrations depicting the preparation of hemp. Carvings found in tombs  in- Thebes represent the process of  making rope from thongs of leather,  about lGOO B.C., and Assyrian sculptures of about 50 years later show  gigantic hauling operations performed  with rope. These records are of particular interest as indicative of the  steps through which rope manufacture  passed in the early ages.���������Power.  average home, or farm. It is the method employed in the great canning factories of the country, Mr, Benson said,  and can bo employed in the home just  as feasibly as on a large scale.  Here is Mr. Benson's explanation of  the "cold pack" process:  "The 'cold pack' method of canning  simply means that the fruits are packed lu their fresh and natural state in  the glass jar or container. Syrup is applied and the sterilization is done in  the jar or container after it is partly  sealed, thus making it impossible for  bacteria, spores, and molds to "enter or  come in contact with the food product  after the sterilization has taken place.  "By this method vegetables are  blanched in boiling hot water, plunged  quickly in cold water, skins removed,  then packed in container and sterilized in partially closed glass jar or the  perfectly sealed tin .an. Uy tills method all food products, including general  fruits, vegetables, and meats can be  successfully sterilized in-n single period, with but one handling of the product"  of maple sugar. It should not be cooked long enough to harden like candy  when tested. When test shows syrup  cooked enough pour into fruit jars,  pitchers, etc., and allow to cool slowly.  Slow cooSh-g is important, otherwise  suspended matter will not settle properly and syrup will be -cloudy. The  white sediment which settles out during cooling is a harmless compound,  of lime with natural acid of the apple.  When syrup is cooled it should be  stored in fruit jars or bottles.' Place  the rubber cap or cork in position and  tighten. Sterilize for., twelve minutes  in hot water or wash boiler outfit, ten  minutes in water seal outfit, eight  minutes in steam pressure outfit under five pounds of steam, or five minutes in aluminum pressure cooker un-'  | der fifteen pounds of pressure.

The War and Employment  In some measure the war has solved  the labor problem which it created. It  has led to exceptional activity in many  trades; the Armiss require guns, rifles,  shells, uniforms and many other im-  peclients of active service,, andtherehy  work has been furnished which has absorbed a great, deal of displaced labor.  The country has consequently on its  hands no great masses of men and  women without means oC earning a  livelihood, as it wan foared would be  !the case. There is, in fact, less unemployment throughout the country than  has been experienced for many years,  and so long as the contest, ln^ts and the  various demands of our lighting forces  ai.d those of our allies hava to bo met  we have no reason to fear an acute  development of this particular embarrassment.���������London Daily Telegraph.

"If  we do not put our trust in the British  government and Lord Kitchener, we  are representing, indeed, a lost  cause." Lord Rosebery's remarks had  special reference to conscription, but,  in all war matters, his comment is applicable.

Transportation     Charges     on     Grain  Shipments of Interest to the  Grower  Available information seems to indicate that the railways have made  adequate provision for moving the  wheat crop to tide water. When the  western farmer is relieved of the  anxieties connected with harvesting  and threshing his crop his next anxiety is the uncertainty which surrounds the rate which he will have to  pay for transportation. West of the  head of the lakes tne maximum rate  is fixed by the Dominion Railway  Commission: east of the head of the  lakes the rate is affected by the  amount of tonnage. This year the war  has created a certain degree of scarcity of tonnage and consequently the  rate for shipping wheat east of the  head of the lakes may he slightly  higher, although we hope that this  will not be the ease. There is danger  of cargoes being taken away from  Canadian shippers and sent via" the  Buffalo route, whicli would be of  courso an injury to Canadian shipping  interests. The task of transporting  probably more than the usual tonnage  with a reduced number of vessels so  quickly and cheaply that the Buffalo  competition can be successfully -combated is one which will tax the resources and energy of the lake  freighting companies, and we hope  that they will be successful in accomplishing it in a manner which will  be as satisfactory to the western grain  grower as to themselves.

Regulating   Prices  Practically all the governments in  Europe have, since the war. put in  force regulations concerning the prices  of foodstuffs. v  Some governments, while allowing  the local authorities to fix prices on  most things, issued decrees applicable  to their whole territory concerning a  few highly important articles. Thus  Austria and Germany both prescribed  the proportion of wheat- or rye floui  that should be used in making bread.  Later Austria and Germany fixed the  wholesale price of cereals, and brought  the distribution and consumption of  flour and bread under strict control.  Turkey fixed prices for petroleum,  sugar and .flour. In Italy salt, tobacco,  and matches are government monopolies, so that their prices wei'e fixed  by the central authority. Denmark,  Holland and Switzerland limited  themselves to controlling the most  important breadstuffs of each country.

Manitoba Authorities Taking Active  Measures to See That Laws Are  Observed  It is evident from the activity that  is noticeable in Chief Game Guardian  Barber's department t__at special efforts are going to be made this year  to prevent infractions of the game  laws and to prevent the further extinction of the vanishing game life of  Manitoba. The reporter called on Mr.  Barber and found him very busy attending to the numerous duties of his  department, but was able to obtain the  following statement from him:  ���������'The Honorable Valentine Winkler  has instructed me to see that the Manitoba Game Protection Act is,rigidly  enforced. You see, the value of animals, furs and birds taken each year,  amounts to $1,000,000, so that the wild  life of the province is worth looking  atfer, and we're going to look after it.  The different sportsmen's associations  are, of course, -co-operating with vis,  and Mr. Winkler has authorized me to  carry out promptly Buy suggestions  that representatives from these associations may put forward.  "As future protection requires increased revenue, all sportsmen are rc:  quested and notified to take out permits aud to help me as far as they can  in the task that is before me. I have  received particular instructions, ahout  shooting on Sundays and out of season, and^this practice has got to he  stopped. ' The federal government of  the United States has gone a long way  towards the protection of ducks anil  other migratory birds and we shall reciprocate by doing our share in that  direction.  "The duck season opens a little too  soon for the young birds who are often  weak   on   the   wing,   so   the  hag  has  been  limited to 20 birds per gun, per  day, and it. is the intention of the department  to see that this limit is not  exceeded.

Hattes, Owner and Ediior_  ORESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, NOV.   5  tggffggge $$ot ffSm  This week we have another letter  from from R. Sinclair Smith, from  Belgium, under date of October 13���������  a sort of explanatory epistle to the  one from him in The Review of  September 10, under the head "A  Strong Protest."  We give this effusion space without any apologies; if our gingery  Britisher keeps on writing he will  shortly get down to brass tacks and  the general public get to know  whom and what he particularly  wishes to discuss.  In   Exhibit Bof the  dence he seemi_igiy takes  broad ge:  of the story, and his latest letter  proves uothing to the contrary. As  we remarked on that occasion we  now reaffirm that the status in  every detail is the same in November, 1915, as in August, 1914, when  the first troops left���������unless certain  out-of-town court proceedings have  given those so inclined an opening  for the familiar "I told you so!"  In closing it is a pleasure to note  that some modern conveniences are  reaching the trenohes. Mr. Smith's  letter was done on a typewriter  in a very workmanlike manner.  Now, were we inclined to be suspicious at all we might suggest that  "the voice is Jacob's voi������������ *���������*���������������*������������������ th  I������I@.���������  hand is the hand of Esau," or something to that effect, but we wouldn't  do it,   not  for   the world.

Eight hundred dollars looks like  a pile of money to jar loose from  the Vallev agriculturist*,merchants  and citizens generally in the next  few months for patriotic purposes.  The apportioning of this amount  to Creston is uot the work of any  citizen or citizens, board of trade or  any other local institution. The  gentlemen in charge of the Canadian Patriotic Fund iu British Columbia in their wisdom have promised to raise S7 50,000 throughout  the province and figured on a population basis it is assumed $800 is a  fair    assessment  for   the   Creston  Men's, Boys'  and Youths9  Sweaters  Right now is your opportunity  to'teoure a Mackinaw Coat.

The  thought that on the morrow Mr.  Smith would set out to avenge the  honor of himself, after the fashion  of tiie kuitured Germans in Belgium, mayhap, would rather detract  from the enjoyment of the see-the-  ������_onquering-heroes-comefestivities���������  for some of us���������don't you know.  Mr. Smith's admonition to The  Review to take some of "judge  not" cordial is really too far fetched  to require disoussion.

Something akin to this spirit���������  and worse���������has permeated Cranbrook for many months. Never  more than a one-paper town at best  when the Prospector���������of too much  Watts fame���������succumbed over a  year ago people got it into their  heads that things would be easy for  the Herald with the field all to  itself���������so soft in faot that most of  them quit advertising and a lot  more overlooked the little matter  of paying their subscription.  Of course there could only bo one  end to such things, and the final  scene was enacted on Thursday last  whon tho Herald wao promattiroly  consigned to the journalistic cemetery. To quote its valediotory,"The  Herald has found it necessary to  pull down the blinds and fall out,  beaten."  The passing of Editor Sullivan  under these circumstances is touching.

The Greenwood JLedge thinks there  is room for a' flouring mil! in the  Boundary.  A Grand Forks hunter last week  brought in a buck deer that dressed  25)1 pounds.  Grand Forks came across with $350  on the Trafalgar Day appeal for the  British RedCross.  Tbe brewery at Republic, Wash.,  may move to Grand Forks as soon as  that state goes "dry."  Recently a cow and horse were shot  dead at Midway by hunters, who  thought they were deer.  At a Red Dross raffle at Grand  Forks last week $11.50 was realized on  t he gambling for a cactus.  Some record wood butchering was  done at Phoenix one day last week,  when -Joe Bush, assisted by a sawing  machine cut 20 cords of wood in four  hours and twenty minutes.  Greenwood's company "of home  guards has dwindled from over 100  members down to about 20. There is  a possibility of the company being  attached to the 107th Kootenay Regiment.  Grand Forks board of trade thinks  town an ideal location for a flour  mill to handle the grinding of the  grain grown in the Boundary as W/.11  as to mill wheat in transit to the  coast.

CERTIFICATE OF IMPROVEMENT  NOTICE  Canyon City, Oct. 22.  Editor Review:  Sir,���������Will you permit me to ask  through the columns of the livest  paper yet printed in the Valley, why  the Conservatives of Creston and Kaslo do not get busy and nominate a  candidate to contest the Kaslo constituency? If they intend to nominate  a candidate why not do so at once and  give the lucky one time to get acquainted and make preparation. Nomination at the district convention has  only to be done once, soon or-late, and  nothing is gained by waiting a week  or two before election.  We all give the Liberals credit for  convening immediately after the B.C.  legislature prorogued last spring, and  getting their choice into the field  early.  With the announcement last spring  of the names of the delegates from the  Creston Conservative Association to  Kaslo one would be led to believe that  they would consider Creston first in  the choice of a candidate, unlike the  local Liberals who at Nelson were led  by Kaslo politicians to nominate a  Kaslo man, who has already met defeat at the polls. The Creston Conservative delegates are also men who  believe in Creston as a fruit-growing  place and naturally should have a  fruit grower as its representative.  The liberals failed to land a representative of fruit growers and as the Conservatives have not yet a man out  their opportunity is now open to get a  representative of Creston and the produce for which it is famous. There  are one or two" local growers in the  Conservative ranks who could quite  ably represent fruit growing at Victoria, as   well as a lawyer   or  miner.  both samples are asked for in the same  letter only one will   be   sent.    Applications on any kind of printed   form  cannot be accepted.  . The destruction by fire of the cereal  building at Ottawa,  which contained  grain-cleaning machinery and a  large  stock of seed   grain ' for   distribution,  may make it necessary to curtail the  distribution to a certain  extent.    We  shall fill as many   as   possible, of  the  applications   which   conform   to   the  rules; but requests receiyed after the  end of December will probably be   too  late.    Samples cannot be   sent   in response to applications (no matter when  received) which fail   to   state  clearly  the needs of the applicant, his  experiences in crop-raising, and the character  of the soil on which he intends to sow  the seed.  All applications for grain (and applications from the provinces of Ontario  and Quebec for potatoes) should be  addressed to the Dominion Cerealist,  Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa.  Such applications require no  postage  Applications for potatoes from farmers in any other pvovincey^should be  addressed (postage prepaid) to the  Superintendent of the nearest branch  Experimental Farm in that   province.

T������riimai  Belgium, Oct. 13, 1915,  Editor Review:  Sir,���������Referring to your editorial  "Judge Not" commenting on a letter  of mine published in the previous  issue of The IIwvikw, might I" stile  that what, 1 heard was not "that some  talk was goiti' on concerning the dependants" of soldiers at the front, not  the common garden variety of backbiting gossip that flourishes in small  conmiunitie*-, but a very definite and  clear-cut story elaborated with much  detnil.  This story was supposed to have its  source in a gentleman of unquestioned  standing in the district. It apparently makes no difference that I have this  gentleman's statement in writing that  the whole thing is, to use his own expression, a del berate lie. Bnt like  the brook it seems to go on and on forever. And on my return, if I do return  the matter will not rest where it is.  And in conclusion, Sir, may I ask  you to prut-line what you preach and  to "judge not" without knowing all  sides of tho question, or to perpetrate  jokes by forcing into my words a  threat of wholesale homicids.  Yourrt truly  K. Sinclair Smith  fte. -Biddulph Writes  Editor Review:  Sir,��������� Just a line to you to thank  you for The Revihw you have so  kindly sent along for our benefit. I  can assure it is appreciated for the  day that it comes all tho former Creston people crowd around and want to  read it. Once or twice I failed to receive it, but I fancy that a former  Crestonian must have been in the  orderly room and���������well, you know,  like Adam and the apple from off the  tree of knowledge, he could not resist the temptation.  The rumor has gone ctrouiiu. tuat we  are to go the 1st or 2nd ofNovember,  I c_ont know that we will get away  that soon, but we will surely be out  by the loth. The 47th and 62nd are to  leave for the coast this week, and the  11th C-.M.E. will be leaving soon, too.  Stanley Reid is now recovering from  an attack of typhoid fever, which has  kept him in the hospital for four  weeks. Everybody" else is just as  usual. x;.-.-;:.'���������..  Horspool is now lance sargeant,  Percy Neil is one of the company  signallers and Teddy Maione is in the  canteen. To tell you the truth everybody knows everybody else so well  that I forget, just who comes from  Creston and who from Fernie, Cranbrook and Golden. E. W. Glenn, who  had worked for Harry Mudie last  winter, and enlisted with us,, went  with the second draft from the 54th  on Oct. 17th. Well, we will be in  England nearly as soon as them, and  we will preserve our connection with  th. Koot^iiayt* by staying in what is  going to be one of Canada's distinctive battalions.  I suppose Creston is pretty quiet  now that the captain has gone to  Morrissey Mines to take charge of the  internment camp.  I see by the last paper, you have had  a letter from Jack Smith. He seems  to live through it alright, and still  keep healthy, so I guess there is a  chance for me. Again thanking you  for Tim Riavimv.  Ptis. A. Biddulph  B Company, 54th Batt.

Among the worst ot*  these are the open privy vault, tlio  leaching cesspool, and barnyard  tilth  A weil in ordinary pervious soil located lower than, ami within .100 feet  of. any of these is almost certain to  In* polluted. I _ ven though the well is  located on higher ground than these  sources of contamination, heavy  pumping or dry weather may s-:o losv-  er the ground-water level tliat. it will  reach, the zone of contamination and  thus polute tho well. It Is evident  therefore, that the open privy vault  and leaching cesspool should be discarded and a sewage purification system, or at least a sanitary privy be  used, instead. Sewage*-, garbage, manure, or other waste should never be  dumped into sinks or fissures, and  most, certainly never into old abandoned wells. An old weii used fur  this purpose is very likely to communicate directly with the waterbearing stratum from which other  veils in the immediate vicinity draw  their supply. Slops or waste water  should never bo thrown out of the  hack door or window onto the ground.  If the pigs and chickens must, run at  large, they should at least be kept  away from the well . A box bnilt  a round the pump and filled with  manure in winter is an extremely unsafe way to prevent the pump from  freezing,    y  Concrete manure pits, impervious  flours, and water-tight drains are desirable features for farm buildings.  Ii! these are beyond the farmer's  nurse, the manure pile should at least  bo pl-icod a safe distance from the  well.

Fish Should  be   More  Generally  Used   ���������  "Eat fish" should prove a valuable  slogan for combatting the lvigh cost o������  living. Aleat has risen in price steadily within recent years, and, strangely enough, the available supply .is becoming less competent to meet the de-  mand- It is not surprising, therefore,  that fish should be looked to as a substitute. As a food it is excellent,  comparing not unfavorably with meat,  although the proportions of nutritive  elements such as nrotein album������n  and fat. differ considerably.  Heretofore, fish has not bean a popular article of diet iu Canada. The  reasons for this are various and some  of them must be removed before iish  eating can become a national habit. In  the first, place, fresh sea fish in prime  condition has been "almost unobtainable even at points not far removed  from the coasts. This has been due  frequently, to inefficient handling of  the fish by tjie fishermen and by the  distributing agencies. It has 'also  been due to unsatisfactory transportation and retail market conditions.  These difficulties arc not insurmountable, and some of them are already  being overcome. Education of fishermen and others who handle fish is a  necessity that cannot be much longer overlooked. Traditional methods  of handling must give way to more  scientific and efficient practices- Such  changes would mean increased profits  for the fishermen, and, at the same  time, by making available large quant-  'ities of food whicli have hitherto been  wasted, would improve the quality and  lower the price to the consumer.  Transportation is already being improved and, in time, when the inland  demands for fish -j&arrant it, fast train  services should, arid probably will, be  established from the fishing ports to  tlia largpr inland centres. The present  offers splendid opportunities to the  fishery industry. A demand for fish is  already half created by the high price  and comparative scarcity of meat. But  if Canadians are to be taught to eat  fish, there must be more enlightened  methods of producing and handliftg it.  ���������A.D.  Minard's  where.

B5 C  S"  f All mis rua ine uiuil  GLIMPSE OF FLEET DOINP ITS WATCHFUL WAITING  The Veil of Secrecy over the Naval Operations  has   been Somewhat Lifted and a Glimpse ot the Fleet has been Obtained,  Showing Thousands of Vessels Keeping the Seas Clear  For the lirst time the veil of secrecy  over the British naval operations has  been lifted when a correspondent, recently visited the Grand Fleet and the  great naval bases. AX one naval barracks he saw drv docks capable of  docking the largest dreadnoughts,  which had been built since the war began. Maps were shown the. correspondent showing where the German  submarines had been sighted and on  which the results of the attacks were  classified under "captured," ���������'supposed  sunk." and ''sunk." When bubbles are  observed rising for a long time at the  same spot in smooth water, it is taken  for granted that a submarine's career  has been ended.  When an officer was asked, "How  do you get them?" his answer was:  "Sometimes by ramming, sometimes  by gunfire, sometimes by explosions,  and iu other ways we will not tell  of."  All the officers aboard the battleships and armored cruisers are envious of those engaged in submarine  hunts, which are regarded as great  sport.  The admiral commanding at an-  important naval base told the correspondent that England had 2,300  trawlers, mine sweepers and other  auxiliaries, outside the regular service, on duty in the work of blockading from the British Channel to Iceland, and in. keeping the North Sea  clear, and that their reservist crews  had been most zealous in their important part in overcoming* the kind  of naval warfare Germany wages-  As the torpedo boat destroyer, on  which the correspondent was a passenger, after a cruise at sea and following the coast, turned intc the  harbor where the Grand Fleet lay at  anchor, he saw a target being towed  in the customary manner for firing  practice by some of the cruisers. "We  keep at it all the time," an officer  explained.  The practice of the cruisers fmi-di- uu  ed, they took their places in fleet  formation among the immense fields  of gray shapes at anchor in precise  order, which as the torpedo boat destroyer drew nearer became line after  line of dreadnoughts.  In ihe tint melting into the sea  even the Oueen Elizabeth, back from  the Dardanelles, looked small for her  tonnage and gun power unless compared with the Inflexible, the flagship  of the Falkland Islands battle, or the  vessels of th- light cruiser squadron,  which just had come in from "sweeping" the North Sea, as scouting is  called.  Fverv deck was stripped for action,  steam was up in every ship, and as  the destroyer threaded her way, turrets were seen turning and guns being elevated and lowered in the  course of drills. Seaplanes~-<whioh  were sailing over the fleet had their  home on a famous Atlantic liner  which has carried many thousands of  passengers.  In their places in the battle cruiser  squadron, which is known iu the  navy as the "Cat squadron," were the  Lion and the Tiger, which sank the  German armored cruiser Bluecher in  the North Sea battle.  "This seems a, sufficient denial of  the German report that the Tiger is  at the bottom of the sea," said an officer.  Looking strange among the homogenous types ot* the 10 gun ships  which belonged to the regular British  navy was a Turkish twelve 12-inch gun  dreadnought taken over at the outset  of the war.  As the torpedo boat destroyer approached the flagship of the commander-in-chief, an officer pointed  out Vice-Admiral Sir John Jeliicoe as  one of the two officers promenading  the quarter deck carrying a telescope  under his arm. From" the quarter  deck he can keep his eye on all the  grey monsters which form the lighting part of his command while others  of his host of ships are abroad on  different errands.  Quick of movement and of speech,  tanned by the year of exposure  consequent on constant duty and  v.-ith only a broad band of gold lace  differentiating him from the other  officers, Vice-Admiral Jeliicoe received his guests at the gangway.  The admiral at fifty-seven years, is  the senior of all the list, which en-  eludes vice-admirals at the age of  forty-four. He is never without  that telescope under his arm when  he is on deck, and officers say there  is nothing which the young officers  tch see that he does net see.  Vice-Admiral Jeliicoe escorted his  guests through the ship, showing  them the men at drill. He also  called attention to the special machine practice of the gun spotters in firing, where the result of each shot is  displayed.  Tbe bluejackets are ��������� invariably  sturdy, long service men of mature  years who have been kept drilling  on the same ship since the war began.

"Massacres    of    wounded  and  unwounded     prisoners     have     been  conducted   on   a   wholesale   scale,   on  some     occasions     as     tha   remit   of  special order,    a_ when the notorious  General    Stenger    ordered    at    Thia-  vilte    that    no    more prisoners were  to  be  made,  that  even  i -isoners   in  large bodies  were    to  be shot down  and that  no   living   man   was   to   remain    behind    the   troopb.    Wounded  were   shot  in   bodies   of   SO   and   40,  and shut up in J)arn.5 and burned to  death."     In     some     cases     wounded  Frenchmen     have     been   kicked   to  death,    or    had    their  own bayonets  shoved  down  -,**'**i*  throats,    as  tliey  lay   on   the   b-^tlefield.     The   report  frequently   speaks   of   German   offic- \  ers,   educated   men.     personally   do- j  ing  this   devilish   work.     The   Bavar- i  (ians  particularly  distinguished  selves      in     shcating     prisoners     in  batches or smashing their skulls with  rifle  butts.     French    wounded    were  sometimes   let   die,   or   operated   on  with   mutilating     and     unnecessary  thoroughness-    "Captured French doctors   were  treated  with     the   utmost  cruelty,   and   stretcher   bearers   were  fired upon with every circumstance of  treachery."  Facts like these, published in official reports of the French government, must be burned into our  memories. Let us see our barbarian foe as he is and be under no  foolish illusions. The Germans profess to hate not the French, but. the  British alone. What have we, then,  to expect from such blackguards if we  do not smash them?.  Price Much Lowe.* Than It Was  ing Times of Peace  Paradoxical though it may seem,  radium is cheaper today than before  the war.  The reason is that it is, arter all. a  luxury, and some people who held  small quantities of'tlie world's limited  supply wanted their money in some  other more practical form when the  war broke out. During peace time  radium bromide cost about _C17-������18  u milligram.

Sentiment in Favor of Prohibitory  Laws Rapidly Spreading  A few days ago the inland revenue  department of the United States published its annual report, which showed a great falling off in the eonsump-  I Hon of both spirituous liquors and tobacco. The explanation ordinarily  given is probably the correct one���������  the solemnizing effect of an almost  world-wide war���������but there may have  been other causes at work, among  them Hie widespread and progressive  reduction in the number of licensed  drinking placs. Some light is thrown  on this aspect of the case by a recent  article in the Christian Science ���������Monitor of Boston.  According to the Monitor a prohibitory law has been in force in West  Virginia for ti year, aud the commission charged with the duty of enforcing its reports that the law has" worked with "surprising success." Among  other facts to support this announcement, it is slated that "violation of  the criminal laws" have been cut  down one-half, and similar testimony  might be obtained from every one cf  the eighteen "dry" states. The population of tho territory within which licensed drinking places hnvr- been  abolished   amounts   lo   fifty-two   mil  Battalions of Pioneers Going  to the Front  A special battalion of pioneers Ir to  he recruited In Ottawa mid other Ontario cltloa.

There are  at least twice  as  many  people  living   in  our   smaller     cities,  towns and villages as live in our fifty  great cities.    The home market of our  farming population living about these  smaller cities and towns is just twice  as  great as the  city market. Yet we  hear much that would lead one to believe  that  all   of the. people  in   this  country to be fed by the producers on  the farm are to be found in the great  centres where the high cost of living  seems now, more than ever, the one  , great thing talked  about,  and  to  be  (considered.    Yet, the home niafket of  j the farmer is his largest and best market,  right at his  door  where' he  can  i bring* his produce every working day  j in the year and sell it to the consumer  T'c^n-1! *direct> without the intervention ol* any  ���������Prin!.p-������ 'middleman   whatsoever,     and   secure  therefor every cent without any profit  of commission to any middleman whatsoever. -.  In these nine states, Wisconsin,  Missouri, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan,  New York, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania, 6,956 towns have lost population, notwithstanding the fact that the  population of the whole country increased in the decade covered, 21 per  cent., Out of the 78 county seats in  i these nine states, 217, or nearly 23  per cent, of them, have lost population,  though tiie county seat is in many  ways the centre of most of the activities of the county unit along the line  of .politics, courts, collection of taxes  ! and in other directions. And, strange  to say, this tendency of tiie decline  of the towns is greatest in the richest  and most thickly settled part of the  states-  \Yhat does this mean to you and to  mo. and to ail of the forty million people'living in these towns?    It means  this, a continued loss of business;   it  means depreciation in property values  th������m- ' *n ^1S^? towns;  it means a deprecia-  I tion in farm land value, for the better  j the town the higher the value  there  is to the land because of its proximity  to the town; it means less deposits in  your  banks;   it means  that you  will]  ! have less money to lend to the farmer  | and to the business man*, it means the  ; boys   are   not   going   to   stay   in   thi  itowns;   it means that the boy is not  ! going to stay on the farm unless the  tow_Taffords some attraction; it means  economic -ruin  to  many   of   our  best  interests;    il   means   increased   problems for the country and s.tates in matters of handling our social and political problems in our great    cities;   it  mearfs   concentration   of   business   of  every   kind   in  the   great   centres;   it  means the downfall of the snie.ll business  man   and   the   small  banker;   it  means socialism.  What,are we as bankers  and business men, going to do about it?    What  does   your   home   town     most   used?  First of all,  it needs  team  work,  eo-  | operation, first amongst bankers and  j business  men,  and   second,   by   all  of  I these   and   the   farming   communities  j about us.   There   are too many bank-  j ers and business men in these towns  who are disloyal to each other���������a lack  1 of confidence exists.    Competition _*nd. *  ! business rivalry have tended to make j  j enemies of us, rather than friends and i  j co-workers.    The local dvygoods  man j  j cannot supply tho wants of the bunk-;  l er's wife and'family because his stock ���������  | its   not fine enough, hence, thoy trade I  b;* mail or visit the department store.  Let me  remind  such  a one that    "a  town that is good enough to live in is  good enough to spend your money in."  If you cannot spend your money where  you make it you are sucking the life  blood out. of our town ahd you ought  to  move.    Tho   lumberman    and  tli-  hardware merchant and their families  are just as 'often guilty of the same  practice,  and  then  they wonder  why  the town does not Improve, and their  business prosper.    What inducement,  let  nie ask, for example, is there, for  , the local dry goods store to carry in  i stock goods line enough for the banker's,  the lumberman's, and  the  hardware merchant's family?    None what-  | ever.    This, being often the case, how  I cnu  the  banker exp'-'ct thu nu-iiduiiil,  : whose note ho, holds, to meet his obligations If there is taken away from  him the only means whereby he may  be abL- to meet them���������his  profits on  goods sold to his neighbors.  The whole question Is Hummed up In  and stated in the following from on ���������  who was nI. one time the editor of a  country newspaper in this state, when  he said: "If yon spend your money  where you get it, you will be able to  get it where you spend it."  The second great movement that  should be inaugurated by the bankers  and business men is that of bridging  the gulf which exist**, between the-town  people and the farmer, it might be to  the advantage of perhaps one person  in ten thousand in this country to have  this gulf made wider, but no more.  There are many of our farmers, and  some living in towns, who have been  educated to believe that the home merchant is a thief and a robber, and that  the local banker is no less guilty of  oharp practices than the lean, shark of  our cities. Thousands of them do not  even give the home merchants a  chance to supply their wants. (No wonder the home merchant does not carry  the stock in size and quality to meet  the demands of some ot our communities. How can he? and why should  he?)  They  send the  money away when  they have the cash, and the home merchant is only of use and benefit when  the crops fail and when the price is  so  low  that they hold for a "higher,  and in the meantime the merchant becomes the banker, in that he lends his  goods without interest and often borrows the money from you in order to  perform   this   service.     Our     farmer  friends, our neighbors���������best, friends���������  have become estranged from us, and  the imaginary line between the country and. the town is a barrier to the  prosperity and the eo-operation, and to  the good of all.    In solving this problem we will  not have to work upon  all  of our farmer friends    and    our  neighbors, most of them are loyal to  us and to their own town, but it is  our duty to co-operate to stifle every  movement working' to augument this  effort to take the trade of the farmer    ���������  away from his home town. -We should  enlist every influence to join with us.  There is a great quaretet of interest  in this country   which   if they could  be  brought together, and in the  end  they will when conditions become ripe,  would work wonders for the good ot  all.    I refer to the bankers and the  business men of the towns, the farm.  press and the country paper.  The movement inaugurated by the  bankers, looking to co-operation with  other interests in the upbuilding and  increasing of efficiency of the farm,  is the great movement of the day. It  will not succeed at the expense of the  millions of people and particularly  merchants and bankers located in the  towns and smaller cities. They are  vitally interested and should become  a part and parcel of a great joint  movement that will increase the productive ability of our farmers. You  cannot hope to accomplish this increase by in any way crippling that  great body of our peoplo who are the  nearest to, and the only ones to whom  the farmers as a class go to, and depend upon for assistance and co-opera-  tion in times of extremity. It is the  problem of today, that of feeding this  nation, which is already a consuming  rather than a producing one. To this  cause the merchants and business men  of the towns pledge their earnest support. There are more than a million  of them. They ask in return reciprocity on the part of our neighbors and  farmers in order that peace, happiness  and prosperity may be the portion ol  all alike.  I Our fourth great nini should he, la  I order to preserve ourselves, our com-  j nntnilies and those about us, to become community builders. Community  builders to the. extent of blotting out  the corporate limits, extending the in-  llnenee of the commercial club and the  business organizations to cover tho  country surfounding. It has been my  privilege the most of my lire to live in  a community which to a large extent  has accomplished this thing. We have  found out by co-operation on the part  of the bitnkers and the business men  that the farming community about us  was in hearty sympathy with every effort to moot conditions in and out of  town, and whpro I have lived, and  what wc a_ merchants nnd hankers  have done is being repeated throughout the country. Many towns liavw  become awakened to tho situation:  thov aro Inviting co-operation; they  are* seeking light; they aro spending  money; they aro doing everything that  is possible in their power to promote  the feeling of friendship, and co-operation with all classes.
