Figured out on the carload basis the  1915 export business of the Creston  Valley in fruit and vegetables alone  totals 103 cars, as compared with 70  for 1914, an increase of almost 50 per  cent. The estimated value of the crop  is placed at $85,000.00, as contrasted  with $57,000.00 for the year previous.  But don't forget the foregoing doe*-*-  not take into account 98 cars of poles,  !K> ears of lumber and 3 of posts, to say  nothing of a trade of almost $20,000 in  live stock, dressed meats and poultry,  and another $1,000 that our poultry-  men derived from egg shipments.  Not only has the production of commodities for which this section is  adapted naturally and commercially  maintained its natural increase in almost every line but butter still the  prices paid to the growers in 1015  shows an all round increase of almost  20 per cent.,even if we include some of  the vegetables for which the demand  was lighter than usual," and price  correspondingly lower.  $20,000 for Livestock  But the most satisfactory feature of  all the shipping is the lino showing  made in live stock. For the first time  in Creston's history a really worthwhile statement is presentable and the  values aro all conservatively stated,  according to those in authority, and  our figures are from May 1st only. In  eight months the value of the horses  purchased and shipped from here is  placed at $4,050. Live eattleat $7,806,  dressed beef at $2,100, dressed pork  $3,250, mid dressed calves at $036, ov a  grand total In live stock alone of over  $10,000, and this docs not include a  little better than tyflOO of fowl "that  went outlive and dreaned.  In these figures, too, no account is  taken of tho eggs which wero sent out  of Creston during tho twelve monthH  which ran well over 4000 dozens which  at tho modest price of 25 cents  mean another $1,000.

In thi3  connection the Union officials estimate  that almost 150 tons of spuds are in  storage amongst Valley growers, the  price offering in 1915 not being sufficiently attractive to induce sale of  them. On the������������ figures the crop of  tubers really shows a gain of 50 tons,  a really riot-surprising increase in  view of the season and the price that  obtained; in 1914.  More Tomatoes than Ever  Although no pie tomatoes are enumerated for 1915 the year's tomato  crop still leads 1914 by over 100 crates.  Something worth noting in view of  ithe disastrous prices that prevailed in  1914. The only remaining field crops  ���������to phow over the year previous are  beets and parsnips which are good for  but minor gains, however.  'Rhubarb seems to'have been rather  overlooked in the year just closed, the  statistics showing a slump running  close to 40 per cent., with carrots just  a __ittie more so in tue wrong turection  and beans even worse still���������almost 50  per cent. Cauliflower is the worst of  them all, falling down from 2,060  pounds to exactly 525. A shortage of  about 2,000 dozens in noticeable in the  outgo of corn, with green peppers falling off 690 pounds.  The jaut-of-the-Valley trade in honey  was cut in half.    Although the season  opened     splendidly     the   wet, , cool  weather of June and part of July   cat  down production entirely during   that  period, but though conditions   dm-ing  the rest of the summer and early   fall  were quite ideal, the set back was too  prolonged and the 1914 yield   of  3,000  pounds hardly reached 1,500  in   1915.  SomeE;~export. trade   in    young bees*  materialized,  Mr. Blinco sending out  at least a dozen colonies   to   different  Kootenay points.  try  ���������eaten  School Report  which we got returns a year ago, for  1915 exactly 21 of theni show an increase, 9 a decrease, while on tho six  others no figures are submitted or else  they have been re grouped. The most  notable absentees are piekling cucumbers of whieh there were 6,527 pounds  in 1914; pie tomatoes which hi 1914  went out to the extent of 3,050 crates,  and of parsnips 2,148 pounds. Green  onions, lettuce and radishes are also  missing entirely���������the latter figuring,  possibly, in bunch vegetables of which  1015 hni.MtM m*o ������->vpov(. of 00". dor������������ns.  Some New Shippers  Two brand new items, at least, aro  noti-������o������hW*, for 1015. Nectarines up to  15 crates, from the JML McCarthy  ranch, were shipped out, and thero is  also tho item of 28crates of cantaloupe  which we aro told wore Grown at  Wynndel. Besides these there aro  a couple of tons of pickling onions  and a ton and a half each of squash  and pumpkin.  A 100 per cent, increase is shown in  atrawherrles, the 1015 output being  double that of 1011. Of eoume this  Hhowing Is due to the splendid activity  III'   -.vyilMU.-i inr. I.I I .:������.

A Plum and Peach Year  Phenomenal growth is recorded in  tho shipments of peaches, which went  up from 26 in 1914 to 830 in 1015, a  jump of almost fifteen hundred per  cent. Plums took an upward trend  from 1,552 crates in 1014 to 5,870 in  1915. Crab apples were moro than  double tho year previous, and pears  made almost as good a showing.

The real hotel business requires a  superior class of man with more than  ordinary business abilities and there  are many such but the majority o:  those who parade the name hotel are  a shame, and disgrace to the hotel business. It is too bad that there is a  stigma, attached to the very name  hotel keeper which should not be.

Tn the ordinary  hotel we pay one dollar nnd a half  and get fifty cents' worth. In the  local option hotel we pay two dollars  and gel the worth of our money.

Crops on Alkali Land  Farmers in Idaho and other western slates have a common problem in  alkali soils. Water, rising through  the soil by capillarity, brings with it.  salt*'. These are washed down without  hor 1 harm in regions of rainfalls, but in  the west, where rainfall is light and  evaporation Is excessive, ' tho alkali  remains on the surface, retarding tha  growth of the crops.  White alkali may readily be washed  out of i.lu. noil by Irrigation, hut. black  alkali, which corrodes plant tiKi-mes.

The First Greek tank  The lirst Greek bank in the world  was the Bank of Venice, established  in 1157, when the queen city of the  Adriatic was the head of the commerce of the western world. At. that  time the great current of the trade between Europ-.ii and Asia all passed  through the Persian Giilfhnd the Red  Sea to Alexandria, Egypt, and was  cai-ried in ships across the .Mediterranean Sea and through the Adriatic  to Venice, where ir. was distributed  lo various parts of iCurope. Venice  was a sort, of autocratic, republic,  founded and supported by its mer-  cliimlH, who were famed throughout  tlio world for their wealth and reliability.

Blacfe  M.A., D.Paed., Regina).  The last published report of the-  Saskatchewan Education Department  reveals tha startling fact that the actual attendance ol! pupils in the rural  schools average only 54 per cent, of  the enrolment and that that of towa  pupils was less than 57 per cent. of.  the enrolment. In Manitoba, the average, daily attendance for the entire  province was 621/4 per cent, of the enrolment. This was an advance of 5.2  per cent, upon the returns for th&  preceding year.  In Manitoba the oversight of truant  and neglected children is in the hands  of a government department, which  receives monthly reports from the  ! teachers of the province, regarding  j the unexplained or unnecessary ab-  I sencs of school children from their  j classes. The superintendent of thi*  j section is assisted by a large corps  j of local truant officers and while the  i law- is still far from being satisfactory,  ; there has been a remarkable improve-  I ment in the regularity of school at-  j tendance iu Manitoba within the past  j two years. Official notices by the  | thousand are issued to delinquent par-  j ents with very gratifying results. Tha  ! superintendent in charge of this work  ��������� reports that 85 per cent, of the cases  | that have been dealt with have turned  ! out satisfactorily.  j     A   new   and  important   act  dealing  with   truancy  was  passed  by the Al-  I berta   legislature    a  couple   of years  ! ago.     All   city   and   town   school  dis-  ! tricts  are required   to  employ truant  | officers   for   the   enforcement,  of   the  ! act and every school inspect6r is ex-  ] officio,   a  provincial     truant    officer.  1 Eve;*y       child      who      has      attained the age of seven years, and who  has not yet attained the age o_ fourteen      years,   is   required   to  attend  school for the full term during which  the district in which he resides is open.  unless excused b\r reasons recognized  by the law as valid.  The   chief  provincial truant officer  in his  last  report  states  that in the  rural   districts   '-.,('80   cases  of irregular     attendance     or    non-attendance  j were dealt with in 1914.    As a result  I of this action    84 per cent . of   these  j pupils   attended   school   subsequently,  j 72 per cent, of them regularly.    This  I includes the returns regarding almost  ' a   thousand   children     who   had   not  been enrolled at all until the authorities intervened.   Three-quarters of the  children    who  were  already enrolled  but were  in   irregular attendance  attended regularly as a result of the action  of the  officials.    Tn some cases  instead  of a  fine  being imposed,  the-  parents are placed under bonds to th_  extent.  of  a   S!100   as   a   guarantee   of.  obedience to the requirements of the  act.  The details with regard to two or  three school districts will be of general interest. In Kluss S.D. the average  attendance during the second term of  1913. was 11. The truant officer intervened with the result that in the  corresponding term of 1914, the aver-  ag.y attendance was 28. In Schultz  i S.D. the average attendance was in-  | creased from 1:1 to 25, and In Quarrel  S.D. it was trebled.  One of the chief problems occupying the attention of those interested  in educational reform in Saskatchewan at. present, is that of enacting  and enforcing better attendance  laws, and the experience of the neighboring provinces in this regard must,  therfore, be of exceptional interest.  her   right    the   llr.'l  Siic   win  I'm- ii  job  "Oil'  never done  niili o.idci  She  weni  "MT-gj  Mil*  'll  9  neeu s  Hotel  ���������������!���������  roitoM'o  ���������*.   ������    (Ml  ;<i.  i,..ii.

G_  To Suppress Rumors Now  Jail  Awaits   the   IVlan    Who   Gossips  About War in Lona'on  In war times, under a strict censorship rumors are as common as dirt.  Every one has one to pass on. You  don't "belong'' in any gathering unless you have at least one rumor to  whisper. If a newspaper reporter believed all he heard he would never  stop writing, or wouldn't write a line,  depending ou his ubysical inoketi".  Now the London police authorities  have decided there are too many  rumors about, and are taking steps to  put a gag on the rumor mongers. -They  have a merry task ahead of them. If  every rumor monger is caught arid  labeled there will be more gags worn  here than Iron Crosses in Berlin.  But tliere is to be a distinction  made in rumors, in the near future  the man who whispers "My friend in  the admiralty tells me the Zeppelins  are coming tonight," is liable to be  thrown into jail and kept there at  hard labor i'or several months. It  won't make any difference whether  he is an Englishman, a Frenchman or  au American. Prosecutions will be  pressed under the Defense of the  Realm act, and this act gives  authorities a wide latitude. Woe  tide the offender!���������New York  buns.  wants.  11 bilk.

A peaceful  state of mind and bright, cheerful surroundings are essential to the regaining of health, and physicians say that  sick persons are often kept in bed  longer than is necessary by .discouraging or disquieting remarks made by  visitors   to  the  sick  room.  Another toing to remernoer is not  to stay too long when visiting a sick  person. The invalid tires easily and  long visits are likely, to have a harmful effect.

Stop the Cough.���������Coughing is caused by irritation in the respiratory  passages and is the effort to dislodge  obstructions that conge from inflammation of the mucous membrane.  Treatment with Dr. Thomas' Eclectric  Oil will allay the inflammation and in  consequence the cough will cease.  Try it, and you will use no other preparation for a cold.  Del Radical, a prominent Spanish  newspaper, claims that extensive  German plots to destroy railway  lines, bridges and tunnels in the  Province "of lluelva (in southwestern  Spain, north of Cadiz, and close to  the Portuguese frontier), have just  ���������como to light, the scheme being to  wreck enterprises connected with or  owned by the allies.  It is stated that German money to  the extent of $500,000 is being sent  io the district for the purpose or  sabotage.  Barcelona is named as the head-  quarter.-** of the plot which in its  Tamillcations hears a resemblance to  the conspiracies recently unearthed  in  the  United   Slates.  The (.1 erman purpose is said to be  to frustrate the export of copper from  tho famous llio Tinto mine to the allied countries. Since (ho command of  tho sea passed to the allies, the Uio  Tinto mi no has been the scene of  unusual activity.  The Real Liver Pill.���������A torpid liver  means a disordered system, mental  depression, lassitude and in the end,  if care be not taken, a chronic state  of debility. The very best medicine  to arouse the liver to healthy action  is Parmelee's Vegetable Pills. They  are compounded of purely vegetable  substances of careful selection and no  other pills have their fine qualities.  They do not gripe or pain and they  are agreeable to the most sensitive  stomach.  Monster Foghorns  ��������� One of the new monster foghorns  in the United Slates lighthouse service is capable of emitting a sound  that can be heard twenty-five or  thirty miles at sea. It looks like half  of a submarine boat, aud a man of ordinary stature can easily step into it.  The horns rival the great brazen  ceremonial trumpets of the Uriank-  hais, in Mongolia, which, 10 ft. in  length���������and probably the largest of  natural wind instruments���������are supposed to carry to tho farthest reaches  of the heavens. The mechanical foghorn makes a doleful sound, and in  this it is the big brother of the great  iVTo-!__'olian instrument ^oth "-*������ which  are intended to bring the good and  ward off the evil event.

The annual report shows the Bank  of Montreal in a position of unprecedented strength. With assets of  $302,98.0,554���������an increase for the vear  of ������38,800,188���������it takes rank with the  most powerful banking institutions  in the world. Of this enormous sum,  no less than $170,007,588 is in cash  and liquid assets. This is over 64 per  cent, of the bank's total public liabilities���������a rat'io whose significance will  be better understood when ic is compared with 55.4 per cent, last year,  and a little less tnan 50 per cent,  (considered a high proportion in normal times)  in 1913.  While holding so large a proportion  of the bank's assets in liquid form  does not tend to large profits, it is a  source of great strength not only to  the bank, but to the whole of Canada, in these trying and difficult  times.  The profits for the year, however,  were most gratifying. Amounting to  $2,108,(131, they provided for the usual  quarterly dividends and two 1% bonuses on the capital of $16,000,000, the  war tax on bank note circulation,  $127,347, and left over $60,000 to be  added to the profit and loss account,  bringing the balance of the latter up  to S1,2!13,052. This, of course, is in  addition to the rest account of $16,-  000,000���������equal to the capital.  Owing to the reduced volume of  commercial busiuess in the country,  the current loans dropped from $105.,-  845,332 in 1914 to $99,078,506. Loans  to municipalities, on the other hand,  show an increase of over two millions,  reaching   the   figure   of   $11,203,472.  One of the most striking and important features of the report is the  remarkable increase in deposits.  Those bearing no interest have increased during the year from $42,689,-  031 to $75,745,720, while interest bearing deposits have grown to $160,277,-  0S3���������a total increase of $38,800,138.  Though this is partly accounted for by  special transactions, it must be regarded as highly satisfactory, and an  especial mark of public confidence.  in reviewing the year, the president laid special stress ou the record  harvest in the west, where a greatly  increased area under cultivation has  given the highest average yield in the  History   of   the   country.

Manitoba. Alberta and Saskatchewan  he placed at four hundred million dollars���������a sum which could be depended  upon to liquidate much indebtedness  and stimulate current trade.  Referring to the remarkable change  in Canada's position, from a debtor to  a creditor nation, Mr. Meredith said:  * "In the seven nion.ths ending October 31st, 1913, the value of exports  of Canadian products was $215,550,000  and in the same period of 1911 was  $226,757,000, while this yoar in these  seven months we have exported Canadian products of the value of $326,-  430,000, or $100,000,01:0 more than last  year, and the great crop surplus has  still to go forward.  "Comparing the foreign trade of  Canada for tho 7 months period ending  with October, imports have deolin. u  from $390,54-1,000 in 1.913 to $253,107,-  000 in 1915, while exports of domestic  products, as I lave said, have risen  from $245,550,000 to $326,430,000, ail  adverse balance of $145,000,000 being  converted into a favorable balance of  $73,323,000, or a betterment-in respect  of foreign trado of no lean than $218,-  000,000 within the short space of two  years."  Taking a prudently optimistic view  of the future. IMr. Meredith said:  "The position of Canada is a highly  favored ono, with an assured future  of growth, development and general  prosperity.

It. Cameron, secretary-  treasurer of the East Williams Mutual Fire Insurance Co., Ailsa Craig.  Ont., under date of Sept. 25, 1915,  says: "With this company, the principal cause of fire losses is lightning.  During the last six years, we have  paid 54 claims for damage by lightning and only six claims for damage  by lire otherwise started. In our case  (insuring farm buildings}*" lightning  rods seem to be the practical  remedy."  Mr. W. G. Willoughby, secretary-  treasurer of the I.ambton Mutual Fire  insurance Co., of Watford, Ont.. says:  "L-ightniiig has been the principle  cause of "our losses, and, if thev amount  paid on stock were added to the  amount paid for losses on buildings  by lightning, it would be more than  fifty per cent. AVe have not had a  rodded building burned for years, and  the damage to them is very small���������  none in 1914 nor in 1915 so far (Sept.  30, 1915). We make a difference in  rates in favor of rodded buildings, and  over half are rodcled."  Bert E. Buckley., Ohio State Fire  Marshal, in his August Bulletin says:  "During these three months, lightning is credited with 68 fires, with a  resulting loss of $91,165. In every case  the buildings struck were not equipped wiih lightning rods. Not a single  fire was reported where the building  was rodded; in fact, it is very seldom  indeed, that such a ease is entered on  the records."  In the face of the foregoing evidence, and in view of the small cost, of  installing lightning rod equipment, it  would seem advisable for farmers to  equip their property with this protection, and also to the advantage of insurance companies to give a preference in premium rates to risks so  protected.  Ouch, that stab-like pain in the sido  is like a hot knife blade iu the rios!  Probably got ,- .oyerheatedr-eooieti  too fast���������now there is congestion,  tightness, such soreness you can't  draw a long breath.  This   is   the   beginning   of  Pleurisy.  Pleurisy is far too serious to neglect a single instant.  Quickest relief will come from a  vigorous rubbing with Nerviline. This  trusty old pain reliever will fix you  up in no time���������will take away the  congestion���������make you well just as it  did Mr. Samuel St. Johns, of Stamford, who says: "In running to catch  a train last week 1 became much  overheated. I put up tha" train window and rode that way in order to get  cooled off. in an hour my side was to  full of pain and my breathing hurt so  much that I thought I had pneumonia.  I always carry Nerviline in my grip  and at destination I rubbed my side  thoroughly three times. The warm,  penetrating effect was soon noticeable and I quickly got relief. Nerviline I consider saved me from a serious illness."  Any sort of a cold can be quickly  broken up with N viline which is a  marvel for reducing inflammation, for  relieving congestion in the throat and  chest, 'for curing stitch in the side,  lumbago, neuralgia, sciatica or rheumatism. Nothing more soothing or  powerful. The 50c large l":vmily siz;.1  is the most economical. Small trial  size  25c at-dealers  everywhere.  German Morality Debased by the War  The latest German papers contain  a chorus of lamentation over the debasing effect of the war on German  morality, especially among the young.  The Cologne Gazette speaks of the  "truly terrifying picture" presented,  by the increase of crime among young  people in the industrial districts.  The Magdeburg Zeitung* denounces  usury, immorality, licentiousness and  degenerate love of luxury that prevails, and invokes the "Lord God of  German history to aid in preventing  calamity from overwhelming the  country."

Canada's Timber Supply  According to R. II. Campbell, director of the Dominion forestry branch,  Canada's present supply of commercial timber has been variously estimated to be between live hundred and  seven hundred billicn feet, board measure, aud to cover an area of approximately 170,000,000 acres. This  estimate of quantity and area refers  only to timber of commercial value  as saw timber, It. does not include  puipwood, firewood, tie und pole material nor small timber of any description, although this has undoubtedly a very large commercial value.  The commission of conservation is  engaged upon an investigation of the  forest resources of Canadn. which,  when completed, will furnish the baa-  is for a more accurate uHtiinuto of'the  amount of timber in tho various flections of the country than has  viou.sly boon practicable.

And in the Alberta premier's  la vor it must be said that he has  been devoting some attention to the  subject he had in hand, and that  his reputation for conservatism  in public utterances of this sort has  never been questioned.  During 1915 the premier affirms  that the banks took in additional  deposits to the tune of $100,000,000  but nevertheless curtailed credit to  legitimate business to the extent of  320,000.000 .ind increased by  #20,000,00(J loans to speculators for  operations on the stock market.

B. a  UPON    AGRICULTURE   ALL   INDUSTRIES    DEPEND  Sir   George   Foster Places th? Importance of the Basic Industry  Before the  Economic Commission, Laying Stress on the  Great Opportunities Presented by the Work in Hand  How ihe industry of agriculture  may be stimulated for the good of  Canada, for the good of the empire,  snd to help and heal and resuscitate  that large portion of the world now  Buffering untold miseries because of  the war was the subject matter of an  address before a meeting of the Economic commission at Ottawa recently,  by Sir George Foster, minister of  trade and commerc0.  Sir George declared that the war  had brought many changes, and one  of these was the quickened sense of  public duty awakened throughout  the country. Canada had suffered  and sacrificed to some extent in the  war, but the staple and basic industry, agriculture, had been enormously stimulated with regard to the  marketing of the crops,  tiou was how the distances  bridged most economically.  "We cannot," he said, "cut down  tbe. miles, but it is possible to cut  down the cost of transportation and  the nroiits of those who intervene  between the producer and the ultimate  consumer.   .  "The matter of rate by sea and  land is another question for your  consideration," he said. "We don't  lack railways.  "As to ocean tonnage, I hope you  will consider thiu question. It is one  that has vexed all -governments, and  it  seems  about  as  far away  from  a  Gallant Gunners  solution as it has ever been.  "As an adjunct of the agricultural  industry any light whicli you can  throw on this question will be greatly appreciated. The next question  is that of immigration, or * ratner  settlement on agricultural lands.  What shall be done for our returned  soldiers? How can these virile  young men be placed on the great  ' wild lands of the Dominion i'or agricultural and rural development'?  They will have to be settled and  guided when settled.  "It is up to you."  In   conclusion     Sir  "This is just about  The   qties-  could be  George     said:  the biggest op-  t  portunity and just about the  biggest  \Svil\       luSlx,    hao    cici     uccu    EuUnbicu  to any commission.

The government will place  everything at your disposal which  will be of advantage, and the country will give you every opportunity  to work out something which will  be of advantage."  Canadian-Acted  as  Machine-Gun Tripod   While   Comrades   Poured  Bullets   Into   Enemy  How* a Canadian soidier turned himself into a human machine gun..tripod  while his officer    fired    two belts of  cartridges into the ranks of the Germans, how the gallant First Battalion  went  into  the light at Givenchy and  was   almost   amiinilated,  and   what   a  splendid spirit of confidence dominated the actions of the British soldiers  in France,    were vividly recounted by  Corporal   G.   A.   Smith,    of the  First  Battalion,   now   in   Halifax,   after   six  months in the trenches with the First  Canadian  Division.     Corporal    Smith'  reached  Canada recently  and is now  in Halifax with a party of 30 wounded  and sick soldiers, nearly all of whom  have   spent  a  period    in  tiie   British  trenches in France.    The wounds are  usually shrapnel or bullets.    A  word  of significance    was    carried    in the  words of Corporal Smith, who said in  answer   to   a  question   regarding   the  wounds  of the    men.    "One    of the  rarest things in France or Belgium is  a   British   soldier    with     a     bayonet  wound.    The    Germans    have such a  fear   of  the     British   cold   steal   that  they  scamper like pigs when a light  at close quarters is threatened."  Ccrporai Smith continued: "Of all  my experiences at the front, the last  charge" of the first battalion at Givenchy will remain longest in my mem  GOOD   SERVICE OF THE  BRITISH   FISHING  CREWS  Have   Played a   Unique   and Valuable   Role in Connection with  the   Dardanelles   Expedition,   Where They Have  Been  Hunting and Ramming Submarines  Population of Ireland  Now Shows Increase  '6'  -,. -\ +*r.       - i        -i *-. i-       W\-������������      4  It  ������C1C     Jl     uuu     -I*-***      t*i  of children under a year  one  Irish  child  in  every  A  Novelty for the Old  Land���������Marked  Decrease   in   Pauperism   Lately  The latest census figure-2 for Ireland  show an increasing population.

For the quarter  ended the 30th of September last the  number ������of births in Ireland was 27,-  770, a rate of 20.S per thousand, and  the deaths 14,670, a rate of V6A per  thousand.* There were only 3,511 emigrants, so that the net increase in  population  is 9,508.  lt is the decrease in emigration  which has turned the scale.

Leinster and Ulster  have the predominance in this respect. In them one child in every  seven or eight dies an infant, in Con-  naught only one child in every fifteen.  Dublin and Belfast no doubt account  for this, for poverty stricken Con-  miught has more fresh air than can  be found in the cities, especially in  Dublin, which ha_5. a system of tenement houses,, whero. scores of families  live in one house, and often more  than one family in a single room.  ��������� That Ireland is a' less distressful  country than it used to be, and is now  on the', mend, is further evident from  the statistics of pauperism. Here  there has been a very marked de-  . crease. There were nearly eight  thousand fewer people in the workhouses in the quarter under review  than the average of the same period  for the last ten years, and there were  12,-2-5 fewer people in receipt of outdoor relief from the rates.  The least satisfactory1 feature of the  returns is the maintenance of a high  death rate from tuberculosis.

Canada's  Offer Accented  Dominion Gives $50,000 to Anglo-Russian Hospital  The offer of the Canadian government of .50,000 towards the establishment of an Anglo-Russian hospital  has been accepted, a cable to that effect having been received from Major-  General Lord Cheylesmore, chairman  of the executive committee in London.  The money has been forwarded.  The  offer of the  Canadian government   reads:  "My ministers understand that provision is being made in Great Britain,  under the patronage of her majesty,  Queen Alexandra, for an Anglo-Russian hospital. They learn that equipment and maintenance of one bed for  one year is estimated at one hundred  pounds. My government, desiring to  assist therein" and thus to express  Canadian appreciation of the valor  and heroism of ths. Russian armies,  hope yon will, inform the government  of Russia and Lord Cheylesmore,  chairman of tho committe, that Canada will contribute ii 10,000 for the  purpose which, according to the committee's estimate, will equip and  maintain one hundred beds for one  year."  Queen Alexandra on being informed  of the gift, caused the following letter  to be sent to Lord Cheylesmore:  "I have shown your letter of yesterday to Queen Alexandra and her  majesty is much gratified to hear of  the splendid contribution of ������ 10,000  from the Canadian government to the  Anglo-Russian hospital.

It was just before the order  to  retire  had   been  given.    Campbell  had charge of the machine gun corps.  At that time  his corps had  been  '_������������������ -  duced   to   one   man unwounded, Pte.  Yinee,  and   a   gun  without  a   tripod,  and two belts of cartridges.    'We ars  going to retire soon,' said one youngster  near him.    'Retire,  be  damned,'  answered the lieutenant, 'I've got two  belts of cartridges left.   If I only had  a tripod fo* this gun,' pointing sorrowfully   at tho dismounted    quick firer.  Crouching at a point of vantage, Pte.  Vince    called out:     'Put the gun on  my    shoulder,  sir.    I  can   hold   it,  I  guess.*    It seemed almost impossible,  but many impossible things had been  done that day and the expedient .was  given a try.    Holding the gun across  his powerful shoulders, the heroic soldier served as a human tripod  while  the   two  belts   were  hurled  into  tlio  sullen  ranks of    the    enemy.    Lieut.

W^ting in the London Daily Chronicle, E. Ashmead Bartlett pays a high  tribute to the work of the Bra ish  mine  sweepers  at the Dardanelles.  "What would King George 'ave  done without these 'ere trawlers?"  This was the historic remark of a  West Country skipper as he gazed  round the Aegean Sea from the bridge  of his trawler when the submarine  scare was at its height, and before  the monitors had appeared to tako  the place of the cruisers and battleships.  The We,st Countryman had ample  justification for his remark and every  reason to be proud of his craft, and  the hundreds of' others, almost exactly similar to her, which have played  such a unique and invaluable role in  the Dardanelles expedition. Probably  for the first time in their lives the  majority of our officers and men, both  I cannot tell you how many men I soldiers  and sailors,  out at the Dar  danelles, have been brought in touch  with onr great fishing fleet from the  North Sea and from the West coast.  I have never yet seen a trawler receive an order from any admiral or  captain which was not received with a  volley of mild oaths from the skipper,  concussion j followed by an eloquent lecture on  how much better it  would  be to  ac-  classes. They go far afield, searching  the coasts of the islands for possible .  hostile submarine bases, .and examining every sailing ship which comes  within the *_:.ar zone. They have orders to ram any submarine, or anything, they imagine to be a submarine,  without hesitation, and many have  been the reports, and scares that have  failed to materialize.  The trawlers engaged in transport  duty have perhaps the harder time of  the two. They leave Mudrcs laden  with biscuits, fresh meat, tinned meat,  live goats for the Gurkhas, ammunition and a hundred and one other  articles which an army - requires i'pr  its daily mse. Piled en top of this mass  of -**-oQds and livestock officers and  soldiers take passage to and back  from the front. It was no uncommon  sight to see a general sitting on a  biscuit box with a goat gnawing at  one boot and the other boot hidden  beneath a quarter of frozen beef.  More often than not there is not a  vacant square incL of space left on  the deck.  It is a remarkable tribute to the  skill in seamanship of the trawlers'  crews, that when one considers the  thousands upon thousands of voyages  i they have made and the immense dis-  complish the same thing in a different. ��������� tances      they  have   covered,   1  think  manner. Nevertheless, I am not  hinting that there is any real indiscipline, for the orders are always carried out, but generally in a manner  which was never intended.  The skipper of a trawler never will  admit that any officer in the navy is a  real seaman.    They will stoutly maintain    that  seamanship  is a lost  art,  which can now only be found among  themselves,   and   they   love   to   hold  forth on the handling of great battleships   as   they   mako   their   way   into  narrow   harbors   or   take   up   difficult i  anchorage,     pointing  out. how   much j  better  they  could  have  done the  job j  themselves.    They love to grumble at  everything,   and   without  a  grievance  they would be miserable.  But few have any conception of the  amount of. work accomplished-by  these craft. In fact, it would have  been almost impossible to have kept  the army supplied without them. Between tiie bombardment of ths outer  fort on Feb. 19 and the grand combined attack made by the whole fleet  on  March  IS,   many  pf the   trawlers      were engaged in Lhe most^ difficult and j they say  dangerous   work   of   endeavoring     to ; and ot  ' side   v  and  sweep the straits of mines. The  strength of the current, and the consequent sagging of the nets, made  this an extremely difficult task, and  the results were disappointing. On  March II, 12 and 13 efforts were  made during the night to sweep the.  mine field below the Narrows,  many of the trawlers were hit  suffered  casualties.  Some kept their regular crews during this dangerous work, and others  were manned by volunteer crows from  the fleet, and w&re placed in charge of  lieutenants and sub-lieutenants. Unfortunately, the enemy'.** lire was too  severe, and it was found impossible to  clear the minefield, and aftc .*��������� the failure of the attack of March IS sweeping  operations  were abandoned.  Since that timo the work of iho  trawlers   has   been   divided   into   two  only one trawler has been lost durins.  the wdiole campaign, and she was  sunk off Anzac by shellfire in the  very early days.  Brought   from   their   peaceful   surroundings into the very centre of tt.e  is*reat  war game, the North  Sea and  | west  coa&t fishing fleets  have  swept  j the Dardanelles for mines;   they have  been exposed to.shell fire for months  ; on end; they have chased submarines  j and patrolled the islands of the Asia-  ' tic  coast.    With  the   destroyer  flotil-  : las.  the  seas  were left to their care  j when   the   battleships     and   cruisers  ' forced to shelter by the enemy's submarines, they have carried thousands  of  ions   of  stores   from  the  bases  to  the   beaches,   and   transported   thousands of sick and wounded to and from  the islands to the hostile shores.  Their skippers and crews belong to  a hardy race of seamen, rendered al-  i most   extinct   by   modern   ships   and  modern   methods     of     travel.     They  I grumble, but they carry out their or-  jders;   and, above all,  iu   spite  of all  they' are proud cf the navy  the chance ot working side hy  ith   naval   officers   und   naval  men.     A   great   spirit   of   friendship  has spnmg up between the two,  and  each   recognizes     the   value   of   the  work of the other.

Up to a year or two ago  pennies were very little used in  either of the three prairlo provinces, and small silver coins wore  used moro freely by the western  children than, wero tho bigger copper  pennies by the eastern children.  lt will not bo disputed that, generally speaking, tho children of the  west haye had moro money to spend  than the children of the oast, due  to thu great prosperity which has  marked tiio progress of the west.
