J.  ayments to Fund  During January  The following contributions to   the  Creston Vaiiey branch of  the   Canadian Patriotic Fund were received between January 14 (when the   last  list  appeared in The Review)   and   February 1st.    Up to the end of last month  almost  half    of  the   total    amount  guaranteed by the Creston branch has  been paid up.   However,  it is   to   be  hoped the good' showing   made   thus  far wiii not tempt any who *_re giving  in   monthly   instalments   to   neglect  their   regular  30-day   payments,   no  matter how small.   The calls   on   the  fund are increasing every month  now  and every   nickel  promised   will   be  needed by the provincial head officials  at Victoria, who are urging Treasurer  Bennett to do   his   utmost   to   make  . -substantial remittances at the close of  ���������each month.

In spots it has been uphill work  none too generally appreciated, but at  the same time useful service has been  rendered the district and citizens as a  whole.  S. A. Speers, who provides the meeting place free of charge, was similarly  remembered. Also The Review for  much valuable and right sort of  publicity. Likewise the Nelson Daily  News for much good work along the  same line.  Owing to Auditor Mallandaine not  having checked the financial statement it could not be adopted. It  shows, however, receipts for the year  of $128 and expense $124, with a some  outstanding accounts unpaid.  Sendoff for F. EL  Callander, R.F.A.  H R Parker...

O. J. Wigen returned from Nelson  on Sunday. He is very optimistic as  to the outcome of the convention.  Tomato Cannery  Man Likes Creston  In addition to electing officers for  the year considerable other important  business was up for discussion at the  February meeting of the - Creston  Board of Trade on Tuesday night,  with President Reid in the chair.  Among the correspondence was a  letter from a cannery man at New  Westminister requesting information  as to the output of tomatoes, particularly, in the Valley and the prospect  of buying them for $10 a ton field run.  A. Swanson was a Creston caller on  Monday, J. Hindley on Tntsday, and  Monrad Wigen and E. Uri on Wednesday.  Guy Lowenberg was a caller here on  Wednesday. *  Provided the powers that be let up  on the snowfall to-night, Wynndel  will send a large delegation to the  hard times ball at Alice Siding hop  emporium to-night.  \ Apropos of our Alice Siding American sympathiser, and his remarks re  gold and coal, we will not lower ourselves of entering into any useless  argument, but will content ouaselves  by silencing him with the time.honor-  ed proverb '-Honi soit qui mal y  pense."  Owing to a shortage of ink caused by  certain ofoursouthern neighbors using  such large quantities of the fluid just.  now we are compelled to economise.  Hence this shortage of news.  Creston with.its glorious clime,  Supplies   the    men  that'll  cross the  Rhine;  And as theJAllies are sure to win  They'll meet the Kaiser in Berlin.  This and many other poetical bon  mots of a like sort, originated and put  over by Mayor Little in his best style,  were among the features of the citizens sendoff tendered Color Sergeant  Frank Burn Callander on Saturday  night in Speers Hall.  R. M. Reid, president of the board  of trade, was master of ceremonies  who, after a few timely introductory  remarks, called upon R-. S. Bevan to  present Mr. Callander with a ease of  pipes and a box of cigars, which Dick  did in his usual, inimitable style, both  gentlemen assuring the guest, of the  evening that this parting demonstration would pale into insignificance  when contrasted with the celebration  Creston will stage for the recruits  when the fighting is all over.  In expressing appreciation to the  gathering for the reception tendered  him and the very welcome gifts accompanying it Mr. Callander took  occasion to say that as a citizen, and  in his position as game warden, he believed that the most kindly relations  had always existed between the   resi-  from others present���������after the cigars  were lighted up, proceedings closing |  with "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow.' \  Auld Lang Syne, and three rousing j  cheers and a tiger for the evening's ;  guest. j  Mr. Callander left on Sunday, going  to St. John, where he sails on the 12th  for England to join the Royal Field  Artillery, in which corps he has been  gazetted a lieutenant. He expects to  be detained in training in the Old  Country until possibly June before  getting to the front.  Tw  o veal's  the   same party   wus  heard from in this same connection  nnd he appears more anxious than  ever to put in a small cannery here.  The secretary has forwarded him all  the crop statistics available and the  Fruit Growers Union will be asked to  go into the matter more thoroughly.  The election of officers resulted in  most of the 1915 officers going back  for another term ���������the third for Messrs  Reid and Henderson���������the 1010 roster  being:  Hon. President���������C.  O. Rodgers.  President-���������II. M. Reid.  Vico-President���������S. Aj Speers.  Secy.-Troiu..���������-Dr. Henderson.  Audito.i���������E. C. Gibbs.  Executive C. G. Bennett, R. S.  Bevan, C. F. Hayes, W. V. Jiiekson,  W H. Crawford, Geo. Huscroft.  Tho Duncan, B.C., board of trade  wrote asking for endorsation of a  resolution calling on the Dominion  authorities to appoint a corps of  special officers whose duty it will be  to see to It that wounded ov disabled  soldiers are found suitable positions  aasoon as they are in shape to go back  to work. The motion to approve of  resolution carried unanimously.  The B.C. Poultrymen's Association  sent along a copy ot the new Egg  Marks Act, attached to which was a  petition for Hignn.tii.eH, in ease the  board thought highly enough of the  legislation to approve of it, which it  did. Tho list will be filled up with all  possible names and then forwarded  li. J.'. Green, M P. A committee of  Messrs. Bevan and Haye.- was named  to diseunii the matter with the Farmers Institute in  ease   ihe   same   eom-  The $300 subscribed at Revelstoke  last fall for a machine gun has been  re-contributed to the following causes;  Patriotic Fund $107, Red Cross $86,  Revelstoke hospital $60, tobacco fund  $11, local relief $35.  dents of the Valley and himself���������which i  conviction this affair in his behalf  strikingly corroborated. His efforts  had been to discharge the duties of his  office without fear ov favor and if he  had been guilty of any injustice to  anyone he had not transgressed knowingly. ��������� In the fighting for the empire  he hoped to do his bit in a manner  that would redound to the credit of  himself and this part of Canada.  Lieut. Bennett of the Creston company of the i07th Regiment, in which  Mr. Callander held the rank of color  sergeant, paid his respects to the  guest's military ability, predicting  that he would fight a hundred fights  and never lose a gun if the other members of the brigrde were made of the  same stuff.  Messrs. Lindiey and Hayes also paid  their respects to the departing recruit.  In the various spheres of Valley life  in which he was prominent Mr. Callander had proven his worth, lt were  unbelievable he would fail in the great  cause in which he goes forth to fight.  Songs were contributed by E. C.  Gibbs, a recitation by W. Levesque,  and stories galore   were   forthcoming  MBitse Siding  Fred Kesler who wasforeman at the  Alice mine concentrator when it was  operating about five years ago, and  who has since worked at Moyie. was  here on Sunday calling on old friends.  He was heading for Rose berry, to  take a new position.  Jacky Moore is doing the janitor  woi'k at the school this week as Cecil  Matthews is confined to the house  with a bad leg���������hurt in a coasting  mixup last Thursday.  Andy Strahl was heard from this  week, at Johnston, Arizona. He is  thinking seriously of coming back to  his ranch here for the summer.  Earl Pease, who has been on the M.  Wigen sleigh-haul at Wynndel for the  past three weeks, came home to stay  ou Monday.  Wednesday's snowfall was the most  extensive of the year. Almost a foot  of it came down here during the day.  Everything is o k for the hardtimes  "hop" to-nigntattheTodd Auditorium  and if the roads are in fair shape a  good turnout of dancers is assured.  The sick list is ������ thing' of the past���������  almost. Mr. Churchill is able to be  about looking after some of his own  work, and Mrs. Watcher is recovering  nicely.  Out of 29 names on the roll at Creston High School for the term ending  January 31st, the distinction of being  the most regular attendant belongs to  M>,T',ra.ret "Webster who wns on hand  101 out of a possible 104 days, Bertha  Pease is fourth with 96.J days attendance to her credit.  Principal Dougherty more than  earned his stipend on Thursday. The  storm rendered his "Casey .Tones"  inoperative but he managed to wade  through the two miles of about, 15-  inch deep snow and have business as  usual at, the regulation hour.  English Strong for  Creston9s Apples  Letters received by those who remembered their Old Country friends  with a box or two of apples for Christmas go to show that the Creston Valley fruit is a good long distance shipper and popular with the overseas  folk for taste, color and size.  Among those thus remembering  friends in 1915 was W. K. Brown, who  sent his sister in London, an assorted  lot of Jonathans, Winter Bananas and  Cox Orange Pippins. Here's what she  has to say of them;  "The apples arrived a week before  Christmas in very good condition.  They almost made me homesick. 1  gave some of them to General Stewart. He was so charmed with their  beauty and size that he put them on  the centre table and admired them for  a week; then he and his wife divided  one and thought it was the finest they  had had for many yeai-s. One does  not see such fine fruit here. Tliere is  j-������*jt. enoucrh sunshine and all ohoH'e  fruits, even apples, are grown under  glass."  This   bit   of   testimony   as   to   tin-  popularity of the Creston apples   with  the English public is re-assuring.   The  output from   the   Valley  orchards is  quite rapidly getting   around   to   the  point, if it has not already reached it,  where an attempt to capture a   share  of the British trade will be considered  good business.    The   proposition   can  be tackled with more conscience   with  assurance such as this that  our fruit,  when carefully   packed   and   graded,  compares more than   favorably   with  the best offering  the   British   buying  public.

Loss From Grain Smut
Course of Studies
To Be Revised
Saskatchewan   Government  Will    Appoint Committee to Confer With

As a result of the wide spread interest shown in proposals for the improvement of Saskatchewan schools,
the leading provincial papers have for
months been full of friendly critic-
Isms and practical suggestions. On
one point there has been general
agreement, namely, that the present
course of studies for public and high
schools calls for improvement. It is
felt by most friends of education that
the course is overloaded, not so much
by the inclusion of subjects which
should not be found there as by the
inclusion of a vast amount of unnecessary and useless details in the various subjects. The work of the
school, moreover, has not been kept
in close relation with the industries
of the committee, notably agriculture,
and there has been a general demand
for such a revision of the school
course as will remedy these and
other evils. In the high schools in
particular it is felt that the pupils
are -called upon to study too many
subjects within a given school year.
Consequently the lesson periods are
too short, the pupils are burdened unduly with home work, and thoroughness is rendered impossible.
The teachers of the province have
long recognized' these evils and have

means for attempting to remove them.
The provincial board of sub-examiners recently petitioned the minister
of education requesting that a committee of duly qualified and representative teachers be appointed to confer -with the provincial superintendent
of education on the revision of the
curriculum. They suggested that this
conference be held next summer,
while the board of sub-examiners is
in session, and that the names of the
members of the commitete should be
announced as soon as possible so as
to give opportunity for the necessary
preliminary  studv   and   deliberation.
On December 9th Hon. Walter
Scott, minister of education, officially
announced that this request is to be
Details as to how the members of
the revising committee are to be
���selected have not yet been-made public. In many quarters it is thought
that in addition to professional educators specially representing the normal schools, high schools and public
schools both urban and rural, the committee should also include a few competent representatives of outside public opinion. It is possible that the
nomination of those lay members may
foe entrusted to Saskatchewan Public
School League, the provincial citizens' association which was formed
some timo ago to arouse, organize
and express public interest in educational matters.
The formation of this committee
will be hailed with general approval
as tho. llrst positive step in the new
reform policy which aims at adapting
the schools of Saskatchewan to the
special local needs and conditions nf
the province thoy are to serve.
Ravages of Smut Disease is a Serious
Matter to  the^ Farmer
Taking one year with another the
average farmer suffers a greater loss
through the ravages of Smut Diseases than through any other one
pest, and while he may realize this
loss, . he, in many cases, seems to
consider it a necessary evil.
H. T. Gussow, Dominion botanist,
from observations of two years based
on personal counts and calculation,
estimates that the annual total loss
due to smut in wheat, oats and bar- j

cent, of capital invested in these
crops. ��� The loss in oats alone is
roughly equal to the combined losses
of wheat and barley. In the United
States it is estimated that the loss
due to the smuts of. wheat alone
amount to over $14,000,000, and when
all the smuts and rusts are considered the losses amount to hundreds of
millions of dollars.
Vast as the direct loss from the
smuts, the indirect losses are also
great. The expense of controlling
them is very large besides the harm
they do to live stock.
There have been discussions from
time k* time in the press with reference to the probable injuries to
live stock fed on smutted grain or
food. Important text books even now
point out the danger of such practice. It is claimed that smutted,
grain causes disturbances of the
digestive organs, loss of flesh, paralysis of the hindquarters and the
muscles of the mouth and throat, and
in some cases death.
"The results obtained, however,
from careful inquiry and experiments
do not confirm this serious arraignment, and we are led to believe that,
as is often the case in such investigations, the conclusion is one <*f conjecture," says H. T. Gusson.
"The animals subjected to experiment were pigs, cows, horses, sheep,
rabbits, chickens and pigeons. It
must be realized that animals show
frequently, during feeding experiments of any kind, certain indispositions, whicli may or may not be
the result of the diet. It appears to
us advisable not to recommend the
feeding of smut-spore-contaminated
food, as it cannot be declared harmless under all circumstances. Pregnant animals, and those naturally
subject to intestinal troubles should
receive no such food."
As regards oat smut, the following
opinion is given in a Canadian bulletin: "When abundant in a crop
which is cut for green feed, oat smut
may cause irritation and. congestion.

Wonderful   * 'Nerviline''
the Remedy
A marvelous "pain reliever.
Not an ordinary liniment���just
about five' times more powerful, more
penetrating, mora pain-subduing than
any thick, oily or ammonia liniment.
Nerviline fairly eats up the pain and
stiffness in chronic rheumatic joints,
gives quick relief to those throbbing
pains, and never burns or even stains
the skin.
"Rheumatism kept my joints swollen and sore tor ten years. My right
knee joint was often too painful to allow me to walk. In this crippled tortured condition I found Nerviline a
blessing. Its warm, soothing action
brought relief I had given up hoping
for. I rubb'ed on quantities of Nerviline and improved steadily. I also
took Ferrozone at mealtime in order
to purify and enrich my blood. I am
today well and can recommend my
treatment most  conscientiously.
(Signed) C.   PARKS,
Prince Albert.
Not an ache or pain in the muscles
or joints that Nerviline won't cure.
It's wonderful for lumbago and sciatica; for neuralgia, stiff neck, earache and toothache. Nerviline is
simply a wonder. Best family liniment known and largely used for the
past forty years. Sold by dealers
everywhere, large family size bottle
50c, small trial size 25c. Refuse a substitute, take only "Nerviline."
Allies Will Cut the Claws of the Wild
Beast of Europe
Slowly but surely the horizons of
the war are clearing. The strange
mixture of sullen denance and practical admission of defeat by the German chancellor, the reports of food-
riots throughout his country, the news
that Hungary is determined to seek a
separate peace if she cannot obtain
it in any other way, and last but not
least significant, the postponement of
the new British war loan; these are
all signs that point in the same direction.

We find these opinions more or
less unanimous on the point that food
contaminated with smut is at any
rate unwholesome, and, although the
matter is not definitely cleared up,
we advise farmers not to run any
risk of losing animals by giving them
food of a so decidedly suspicious nature.
Germany   Does   Not  Know   Extent   of
its  Death  Roll
The   Prussian   authorities   who   di-"
rect   the   Kaiser's   war,   do   not   dare
to allow* the enormous losses of their j
army  to reach  the German people.
As a matter of fact outsiders Know
more of the mortality lists than do
the   people   of  the  Kaiser.
The ten thousandth page of the
officially acknowledged German casualties has reached London, says the
New York World, and it denotes that
Germon losses in the field now certainly are not less than 3,tiuu,UvO
killed, wounded and prisoners.
The closely packed pages contain
an average of 3-0 names each. Before me lie lists 76*J to 778 inclusive,
for the first nine days on November,
covering 239 pages. ' The toll of death
and misery for these nine days is
86,040, or 9,560 a day.
As German military authorities
never, publish officer casualities, except non-commissioned, and the lists
are not guaranteed to be complete,
it seems within reasons to estimate
Germany's attrition in the fields of
war   10,000   every  twenty-four  hours.
The sheets are twelve and a half
inches long, with three closely crammed columns to the page. The accumulation, since the war began, if
piled together, would make many
columns   reaching   to   the   ceiling   of
In all the world's history there
never has been such a record of
dead and maimed, iu anything like
the same period. It would indicate
that the "nibbling"' process on which
Gen. Joffre pinned his faith from
the outset of the war is being carried oh pretty consistently, and that

in all the theatres of war is a problem that must seriously concern the
German government, as the German
male population with military possibilities is not inexhaustible.
The Prussian Guard is never missing from the death roll, whether infantry, uhlans, field artillery, hussars
or machine gun section.
The tremendous losses in the flower of the Kaiser's legiqjis is proof of
the extent to which reliance now
must be placed on the Landstrum
and Landwehr brigades, and in substitute infantry regiments, which
figure so prominently.
The believers in inevitable triumph
by attrition find in these lists much
ground for hope and confidence in
its efficacy as a determining factor
of the war.
Although the German lists are published with more or less regularity,
it is a mistake to imagine that they
are freely circulated ia Germany. In
the first place, the military authority arbitrarily prevented the publication of these'lists in the newspapers

S'ir   Oliver   Lodge   Says   That   Doing
Their Duty Mitigates Sorrow of
Sir Oliver Lodge has issued a "message to the bereaved," which is published   in   the     Christian    Commonwealth.
Sir Oliver's message, reads: "Tho
amount of mourning and suffering
throughout Europe at tho present
timo is something terrible to contemplate. But it must be rememborod
that, from the point of view of tho
individuals who luive gone ovor. tliere
are many mitigating circumstances.
They havo done their duty; they
have sacrificed a useful career here;
they have given up nil they possessed,
nnd it will be requited to them. 1.1 y

prestige, and they have an uneasy
and well founded conviction that the
terms likely to be offered by the allies will be humiliating in the extreme.
In the first place the latter will
certainly not consent to consider the
subject at all until Germany has retired, voluntarily or otherwise, to her
own frontiers. It is probable they
will insist on dictating their terms in
Berlin as Napoleon did a century ago.
They will demand the most drastic
rectifications of national boundaries,
and the payment of indemnities
which will cripple the already tottering Germanic empires for generations
to come. They will in fact so cut the
claws of the wild beast of Europe as
to render her impotent for mischief
for at least half a century.
Peace will come when the enemy is
ready to accept it on that basis. They
may  elect  to  continue    the hopeless
fight,    but    they will do so with the
knowledge  that    every  day  ot delay
will    only    make  matters  worse  for
them.    The    serious �� point    for Germany is   that she is 'not beaten in a
military sense so much as financially
and   in  the   absolute   exhaustion     of
her resources.   Her only course is to
sue l'or peace.    In    that    connection
there is a strong force of public opinion in all the allied nations  that in
the settlement of this mad war justice    must come before mercy.    The
stakes   are altogether too vast to permit    of  any   false    sentiment.    The
safety of the world demands that Germany must drink tho cup of her humiliation   to   the   vory  dregs.���Montreal Nowb.

In view of the assurances given  in the case, and the trouble Cranbrook went to to mako things  pleasant for the troops, we don't  blame the railroad town people for  entering a vigorous protest, though  from all accounts the trouble is  partly of Cranbrok's own making,  coupled with bungling on the part  of tho militia officials, plus a raw  deal from tho weather man.

This arch enemy of mankind is accomplishing its devastating* influence  by a dual action. In the lirst place  through the economic effects on the  home���������diminishing as it does and at  times entirely cutting off the revenue  of the home. Even the moderate  drinker, who takes a glass or two of  beer or whiskey on his way home  from work, robs his wife and family  of the equivalent of a loaf or two of  bread or a quart of milk, a family  which at its best with a full income  has probably only enough to keep soul  and body together.  The lowering of their vitality and  resisting power consequently predisposes tliem to disease. The alcoholics  themselves have much less resisting  powers to disease than have the abstainers?. This is especially true in  pneumonia and blood poisoning. The  heavy drinker who contracts pneumonia, should not lose an hour in settling his affairs as he will in all probability be unconscious with delirum  within twenty-four or fo-ly-oight  hours from the tlmo liis disetiHO is  diagnosed.  In tho second place, wo havo the  Inlluence of alcohol on the drinkers  forcefully presented by life insurance  companies, statistics prepared hy It.  II. Monro, actuary of the United  Kingdom Toinponiuee and General Insurance Company shows that the  death rate among moderate drinkers  was :ir< per cent, higher than among  abstainers.  English insurance companies found  by their statistics running over 40  years Hint abstainers have a death  rate of i!;i per cent, loss than non-ah-  siiiiiior.". in 18H2 Mr. Dillon Gouge,  public actuary in South Australia,  found that the non-abstainers had almost double Ihe amount of sickness  that  the  abstainers had."

Two Maharajahs have given  an aeroplane each, while the commander of the Kashmir army lias given two aeroplanes.

The immense strategical possibilities of the world war furnishes a fascinating study. Sir Horace Smith-  Dorrien s appointment suggests, in  the words of the Westminster Gazette, that "the operations in East  Africa are destined to take a more  important character than they have  hitherto had."  With the operations in the Kame-  rur. practically completed, German  East Africa is the only remaining  German colony to be subdued, ana  its possession will be a valuable asset to the Britsh empire, and especially to India. Germany is understood to possess a force of about  7,000 whites at her disposal there,  and he has not hesitated to arm  large numbers of the native population  which   totals  10,000,000.  The British forces in East Africa  in the early stages of the war consisted of only two battalions of the  King's African Rifles (native  troops), some 3,000 native police in  British East Africa and Uganda,  and some small white levies. These  were reinforced later by  troops.  The    German  have   coma   into  Horace Smith Dorrien, leads to tne  expectations that a coup of this kind  is now in preparation. Some criticism of the plan is heard chiefly on the  ground that it is a "policy of small  packets" and that such forces as will  be placed at General Smith-Dor'rier.'s j  disposal could easily be employed  elsewhere. j  Egypt   is   the   particular   place   the |  critics   have   in   view.     The   British I  garrison   in    that   country   has   been |  greatly increased,    and    it is believed is adequate to repel German-Turkish   attacks.     Some   authorities   hold  that   ths   characteristic   British   habit  of  disposing  the  enemy    may    once  again be unduly influencing the government's couhs'ls.  Reports   from   Syria     of     Turkish  It is one  war in the  of no city  fixed  that  Indian  and British forces  contact on various  occasions, the two most important  results being the failure of a British attack on the German post ot  Tanga, and the British capture of  Bukoba, the chief German base on  Lake Victoria Nyaiiza.  Nothing in the nature of an attack to conquer German East Africa,  which is officially one and a half  times the size of Germany, has hith-  preparations  are  regarded  and  travellers from  Sy  strong     concentration  troops at Jerusalem  German    general,    Trussemar,    is  in |  command of  an  army of 70,000  men |  at  Ghaza,  and Gen.   Von  Mackenzen, i  according   to   the     report,   will   have S  supreme command of the army of ii.- j  vasion of Egypt.  The reported decision of the Dutch  shipping companies trading to the  East Indies to abandon the Suez  Canal route is in some quarters  considered due rather t% German  warnings than to the reason alleged���������the difficulty of coaling.  An interesting commentary on the  present situation in regard to both  German East Africa and Egypt is  the report that France at an early  period of the war offered to place  at England's disposal for the conquest of German East Africa, a  strong expeditionary force then stationed af Madagascar, but the offer  was declined on the ground that  Great Britain was not then ready to  undertake   such   an   expedition.  the outward and visible tacts serve to j  satisfy or celucte the people. None  the less a sub-conscious sense of disquietude is universal and springs  trom the blank uncertainty as to what  the- morrow may bring forth.  "The German people hold that their  enemies are beaten, but not tamed.  They feel that they can rely on their  military force and endure the economic piuch for zotzq time, but dread  overtakes them v.*lien they ask themselves: "What if the war should last  undecided to the year 1917?'

The department, it is stated, has extended its  activities in this direction as far as  available funds permitted. The attention of the single-crop farmer has  been directed to the need of diversification and the introduction of live  stock as essential to a sound agricultural economy.  Among the most promising* agencies  for. increasing the meat supply are the  pig clubs, 'these now have a membership of about 0.000 boys and girls,  und over 2,000 registered hogs are  owned hy the members. Poultry  clubs also have received much attention, ths membership now being approximately 4,000. The report continues:  "Last year the ease with which the  meat sttpplv can be increased materially by controlling or eliminating the  common live stock diseases was pointed out. The direct losses from them  are enormous. It is impossible to  give any accurate' statement even of  direct losses. The Indirect losses,  whicli also arc great cannot be estimated at all. It has been conservatively estimated, on the basis of data  lor thirty years, that the annual direct losses from animal diseases nra  approximately   $-12,000.000."  The potash situation, the report  ."-tales, continues very serious. There  is practically none available for for-,  tillx.cr uso, and present indications are  tlmt tbe supply for this purpose will  not be increased materially during  tlio coming year. The various obstacles to the commercial development of the four knowu domestic  ������ources aro pointed out. These  nouroos are: Tito giant help of the  1'acillc coast, the nlunlte deposits  mainly in the1 mountains of Utah,  tho feldspalhle rock of tlio eastern  part  of  the   Lnitod   Slates,  and iheir allies  succeed in maintaining such a resistance as to prolong war beyond 191*3, I  do not know how Germany can possibly hope for victory. Tbe British  blockade has proved far more effective than the Germans wish it to become  known  _n  foreign  countries.  "What is thought and ��������� feared in  G rrnany is that the war will either  ���������be definitely won upon the land by  the Germans during 1916 unless won  on the sea by the English in 1017.  I-Iencs a tremendous output of force  is to be expected by Germany next  year. Tiie first of. her acts will be  an attempt to- smash through to  I Calais and an expedition against  \ Egypt."  !     Dealing with  the  military  situation  I in Germany,    the    Seeclo's informant  ��������� says he found the problem of enougn  i msn  recognized  there as  being  very  | grave. He points out that the German  official   casualty  lists   show   an   average of 150,000  every month, thus totalling  about  2.500,000  down to  Dee.,  1915.     This   problem   is   causing   unrest   in   the   empiro   because  the   industries   and   agriculture     are   being  drained   of  their  hands.     During  the  last month alone the number of women employed in metal working and  transport   industries   rose   from   1-10,-  000 to 155,000. ���������..  of the daily lessons of the  BatRans that the character  or district is so deiinitely  it cannot���������be altered over  night. Few things have become more  wearisome to students of Balkan politics than the historical monographs,  charts of race migrations, ethnological maps in several colors (the maps,  not the races), constantly issued by  one Balkan state or another to prove  that virtually all the Balkans as well  as a considerable share of the rest  of the world is and has for centuries  been inhabited almost exclusively by  Greeks, Serbs, Bulgars, or Austrians,  as the case may be.  at least  I extent of* their claims. According to  | them, certainly all of the littoral and  | all of the Islands of the Aegean, and  ��������� probably a very large part of the  i Eastern Mediterranean basis as well,  ' including by all means Alexandria,  should be Greek.    Towards tho north,  rn-i_  probably the worst  in respect of the  refugees���������more than double the normal population of the city itself. A  new city was built in the shape of  brick wnere the refugees are housed  in the utmost squalor and the most  increditable conditions of crowding.  Naturally, they prefer to spend most  of their time trying to pick up a few  pennies around the streets of the city  to sitting idle in the stench and filth  of  the   barracks  all  day.  Scarcely had the population of  Saloniki in a way disposed of this  sudden influx of strangers, when the  Greek, mobilization was ordered and  soldiers from all over Greece began  to arrive at the appointed trysting  place���������none other than Saloniki.  Following the last two Balkan wars,  Greece hart increased her population,  by territorial acquisitions, over 50  per cent. It is doubtful if even the  Greeks quite realized what this increase would mean in tbe shape of increased number of troops mobilized.  In a few weks���������almost in a few days  more than half of Albania is claimed i ���������the population of Saloniki had been  and a goodish bit has already been j first 160,000, then 360,000, suddenly  seized.

The British and  French armies are greatly in need of  hay and desire the Canadian timothy.  Already prices are being paid more  than double those under normal conditions, recent contracts being placed  at $1.9 a ton. There is also a limited demand for Canadian timothy  among the  American  horsemen.  In tilling the demand for the limited market in. the States, the prices  are often boosted much above ths  already high prices paid by the British government. This has led to  cancellation and non-,ful til ment of  army contracts already placed in  Quebec, causing much worry in the  allied armies, and endangering our  hold on this market, which can absorb all our timothy production in  eastern Canada.  Therefore, steps have been taken to  secure the timothy hay crop of Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime provinces i'or use of the allied armies,,  and the price prevailing (about $20,  or double the usual amount paid) is  expected to continue, or ba even  greater.  So far the nlliad armies have demanded timothy hay, but the department of agriculture has submitted  samples of western grasses and eastern clover, and a market may  found  for  thoso.  This action has been taken after  consultation with the British'authorities.    .  "It. is difficult to say just what effect the embargo on hay will liavo,"  said Mr. W. 11. Dwycr of Ottawa, an  authority on hay export. "It all depends on how tho government llxos  prices. If the Boston and New York  price is tiikon ns the Ciinndiun contract price, then tho price will lik-.-ly  rise.  our hay from  will   m.doubt  the States, as  is Hiiporiur to  "Sea   Sledge"   for   Rescue  The     United   States     navy  ment has adopted a new "sea  type  of motor boat for rescuing _avi- ;  into difficulties, j  i The  new boat  is  the  invention  of a ���������  Boston engineer. j  It has been named by its inventor j  the "motor car    of    the sea," and is j  shaped  something  after    the  fashion ;  of  the   flat-bottomed   boats     used   on ;  "his    shape gives th?

Fcr in the Greek mind,  any other disposition of Constantinople than to place the Moslem city  under Greek rule would be the rankest injustice under which Greece  would never cease- to complain���������until  properly compensated.  In view of the extravagance of these  national claims, it is most interesting  to   watch   ths     change     worked     in  .Saloniki in the course of comparative  ly few weeks    since the  have begun to land there.    It is true j  that Greek:.*,  also, have  poured  in in :  even greater numbers than the Allies, I  but  the   original  population   stood   at  about 160,000 inhabitants,    of    which  number 80,000 arc Je*,vs of Portuguese  and Spanish  descant, still spaaking a  sort of bastard Spanish, in which several  newspapers   are  printed,   though  ! strangely enough the Hebrew characters are employed to spsll out these  i Iberian words. Next iu number come  ! the   Greeks   thmselves,   totalling  with  officials, garrison and everything, only  1-10,000  or  less,     while   ths  Turks   ran  | them   a   close   second   with   between  ! 30,000 and 40,000. The remaining pop-  i mainder   erected   a   tent   city   at   ths  ledge of the town���������but all spent their  j time  in the narrow,  ill-paved  streets  ' oi Saloniki which began to resemble  j a  county  seat  during  fair  week.

It is true that most of.  j these  have  gone  on  up  into  Serbia;  [ but   all   the   necessary   commissariat  ! service must be directed from Salon-  i iki, all the work of debarking not only  | the newly arrived troops but the sup-  i plies  must  ba  handled  there,  and  in  illied troop:: {duplicate,  for  the  British  have their  ' own machinery to this and quite distinct from the French.     ��������� .. y  Naturally,    there simply    wera not  enough  shops  in  which    to  bake tho  bread  necessary for    so  great  an  in-  ���������..^^r.r.

Here, however, instead of simply having  one  oth-.r country  as  hinterland.  as   Rotterdam   or   Germany,   Saloniki  has two:  Serbia and Bulgaria.    There  were   always,   therefore,   many   Serbs  and not a few Bulgars to be found in  Saloniki.    For tho  same  reason  Austrians were frequent in normal times.  ! though  less so since the war has cut  j Austria-Hungary off  from Saloniki as  j a  port  of outlet.  i To a population so divided there  | was Jirst suddenly added about 800,-  1 000   Greek.
