News of his death was rather unexpected. Early in the month he had  gone to Rochester, Minn., for treatment for goitre; at the*-fi_yorably-  known Mayo Brothers hospital, and  up to the day he iett he was his genial  self both in appearance and conversation, Favorable reports as to his condition came regularly until Saturday  afternoon when a wire to the effect  that his condition was serious was received. The following day Frank  Staples, who is on guard duty at the  internment camp at Morrissey, left  fox* Rochester, arriving there Tuesday  eon and Browell (violin), and Mauberg,  accordeon. The eyent was one of the  most successful in Canyon City's history and many were the nice things  said of Mrs. White's ability as* a hostess on occasions of this sort!  H. Martin delivered a few loads of  wild hay to ranchers here this week.  W. V. Jackson was a visitor here  last week end. Since giving up the  agency of Riverside nursery stock  Walter is not s'een in Canyon City so  often.  Mr. and Mrs. R. J.

Roofs on some of the old buildings  though during his five years'residence  here coiiasped during the week with  r in Creston he had very few days sickness.    Goitre of long standing became  troublesome the early part of the winter, and to secure relief from this ailment he went to Rochester. As to  the exact cause of death the doctor.?  ���������are unable to determine.  Deceased, who was in his 69th year,  wasbbrn in the township of Cavan, in  Ontario, April 26, 1847, of Irish-Canadian, parentage, his forebea**s being  -among the pioneers of that part of  Canada. In 1880 the sph-it of the west  got him^ and notwithstanding the fact  that railroads were almost unknown \  in the middle west he set out'for.Man-  itoba,  going via St* Paid aiid "down  the weight of melting snow.  A car of grain was unloaded here  this week for the company.  Friends of Mr. and Mrs. P. Denier,  who moved from here to the Leduc,  Alta., district, about a year ago, will  be sorry to hear of their loss of a  young daughter, who died on Feb. 15  after a brief illness������  An evening's entertainment that  promises to be weli worth while is  scheduled for to-night at 8 in Mercantile Hall���������the ahn rial silver medal contest, which is stagfed by the Creston  Women's Christian Temperance Union.  For medal honors there are six contestants, Misses. Mabel Craigie, Ros-  anna Shorthouse-^' Vera Smith, Audrey Craigie^ Bertha Pease and Edna  Holmes. All hav������ had careful training and have been given numbers that  struck their fancy as best adopted to  their elocutionaryAabilities.  In addition to tjlfjse literary-features  there will he a solb|by Miss B, Smith,  a "violin duet byVlitrs. Crompton and-  Miss RuthA-_lingen6imith, and. a yoeaii  duet by Misses'f;|$i.ti**iel/and'.

There are,  also three campaigti songs; on the  musical menu and a closing choi-us,  "O Canada."  The W.O.T.TJ. have spant much  time and hard work arranging the  entertainment andf it is hoped their  efforts will be rewarded with a large  attendance. An admission of 25 and  15 cents, will be charged���������any surplus  after expenses are met going to the  organization's rescue home work in  Vancouver.

Grand Forks clergymen by petition  are urging the council' to secure  guards for the city's industrial plants  against alien enemy attack.     '  If Grand Forks council will pay  practice hall rent and give him $50 for  his services M, C. Davidson guarantees  to re-organize the town band.

The young people are making good  use of another supply of skating, on  the fiats near Mr. Stewarts���������^botti  Sunday and week nights.  With leap year balls and Irish  nights at Creston in the near future it  is not likely the Social Club will haye  another dance until about March 24th,  or later.  Out of a totalof 173 shareholders entitled to vote and take a hand general-;  ly in proceedings, at least a hundred  were in attendance at the annual ,  meeting of-the Creston Fruit Growers  Union, Limited, in thgj Auditorium, on  Monday afternoon.  President Jackson opened proceedings promptly at 2 o'clock, the Jh-st  order of business. being the reading  and adoption of the minutes of; the  previous conclave, which was folluw ed  by a joint report of the president and  board of directors from the president.  His report shows the turnover for  the year amounted to $52,980, whieh  does not" include the strawberries and  other produce handled directly by the  Wyundel selling agency, for whom  the Union acted as selling agents. On  this account the Union's percentage  was $6,913, as compared with a revenue of $4,098 in 1914.  While at first blush the balance  sheet is none too encouraging looking,  if we savvy the contaption correctly  1915 trading has not been quite so disastrous as would appear���������though there-  is no denying a substantial reduction  in the $4,662 of accouuts receivable  and a like shrinkage in. the $3,886 duo  ranchers for the year would help some.  However the matter of $1,578 collected since the first of the year shows  these accounts are reasonablv sure  to  district. There he remained until  1888, when he moved into the Tiger  Hill section of that province���������staying  23 years in the Holland and Treherne  country���������now two of Western Canada's most 'highly-developed agricultural sections. His final move was to  the Erickson section of tiie Creston  Valley, in 1911, where he has taken  life somewhat easier, though by no  means living retired.  He is survived by his wife and two  sons, Roy and Frank, all living,in the  Valley, and by one brother in' Saskatchewan and another on the old  Ontario homestead, while a sister resides at Syracune, N.Y. In accordance with an oft-expressed, wish the  remains will be interred in Brookdale  cemetery at Holland, Man., where the  two eldest sons of the family are also  buried.  ' The familiar figure and never-failing  optimism and good nature of Richard  H. Staples will long be missed. He  had the happy knack of impressing  all whom he met as to the manner of  man he was���������a faculty that mude him  a. host, of friend*; and no enemies, re-  gardleus of the free and always outspoken expression he invariably gave  his views. In their bereavement  thoso who mourn haye. the truest  sympathy of a wide circle of  friends.  Roy Staples has taken a et ntract to  haul cord wood from vear Erickson to  Canyon Siding and there load it on  cars for the Canyon City Lumber  Co.  Mrs. ;Streetor, principal of Erickson  school, now living in the Palmer house  at the station, has rented the house  formerly occupied by Jud. Fulmer.  and will move there early in April.  Alf. Palmer, one of the guards at  the Morrissey alien internment camp,  was home on a few days' leave the  early part of the week.  It is a pleasure to note that Mrs.  Roy Telford who went to the hospital  at Cranbrook about three weeks ago  for treatment for Bright's desease, wos  able to return home on Monday, well  on the road of recovery. Mias Annie  Ryckman accompanied her.  H. Attwood, C.P.R. agent at Moyie,  spent the week-end on his ranch here.  Jas. Parkin of the same town accompanied him.

Cranbrook is   making an  effort to  reorganize the city brass band.  Penticton fruit growers union had a  profit of $800 on 1915 operations.  . Vernon Presbyterian Church has  195 members, and the Sunday School  35'! scholars.  The medical health officer at Greenwood advises citizens to boil their  drinking water.  At Bossland from a group of claims  covering less than 500 acres $70,000,000  have been produced to date.  The winter's cut of timber in Cranbrook forestry district is estimated 'at  50,0p0,000 feet.

Dexter, who was principal of the  school here in 1913, and who went  overseas with some of the earlier  contingents, has just been promoted  to the rank of captain and is in charge  of No. 3 company     Battalion.  ,  Coming to the profit and loss account, on salaries a considerable reduction is shown���������from $3,702 in 19!+,  to $2,992 in 1915, a decrease of $709.  General office expense is up.. $1,306.  ^p^ljis'point-thepresideii'i)' in his ie-  port observes: "This, on the face of  it, looks perhaps an alarming increase,  but with the much . larger volume (>f  business handled, and the fact that-  your sales manager's expense ou t Inroad have been included in this account, the increase is, perhaps, explainable. For your information 1  may mention a few of the larger it. in.-*  included in this account: Stationery  $95, stamps and postage $412, sales  manager's travelling expenses $514.  telegrams $447, printing $280, audit  and legal fees $113, telephone and box  rents $107."

Trail   school   teachers  ure  On   the   matter   of   $1,061    rebates  allowed,   we   again   quote   from   the  president's    remarks:     ������������������On    carload  shipments alone a sum  of $1,017 for  allowances between the price invoiced  to buyer (and on which the *pool   Was  regulated) and  the  returns   actually  received had to   be  faced.    Fiotn this  sum $358 was charged  back  pro rata  to   growers.    The   balance,    together  with losses on your express shipments-,  constitute the figure we had  to  write  back."  On bad and doubtful debts we also  quote the president verbatim: "Your  directors have given this matter their  careful attention dm Ing tho past sea-,  son, but in spite of individual report*  obtained, and also by subscribing to  Bmdstreets, we wero not able to  sufficiently control the credits gvon  which go to make up the loss of $1,222.  Your principal debtor is, us you are  aware, the Jackson Fruit Co., and a  sum of $040 ho������ been re- -.wered to  cover, the loss on thia account."  A comparison of the 1914 and iVlo  accounts covering rebates and bad and  doubtful debts show that had these  items not turned up last year the Un-  ,n I'lOII   XVOliul  iiitVi1   HaiiiWIi    a.    jOwiUt'f    '.'.\-  most $1,000, while in 1014 even with  no allowance fun- rebates and bad debts  Kaslo  I ting well into tho early  hours before  j the iilYair wiih brought to a aueeessfnl  giving a 1 eon* iiii>ioii,  then   would still "nave Inn-n  a  'n,.-...  ,>!'  -T.i.U-0.

Sir Charles pointed out  that when one or two lines now under  construction are completed, and a new  100 milt, line is btiiii, communication  by rail or steamer will ba. effected  from Cape Town to Alexandria and  Port Said. A short connection between  Port. Said and .lerusaU'in would linl.  np Asia Minor.  It. was almost certain, lie said, that  a railway would be made from Stanleyville to Lake Chad, and French  surveys to Lake Chad from Algeria  had already been made (across the  "Saharai. With a tunnel from Ceuta  to th'; Spanish coast, this would give  an  overland  connection  with  Europe.  Sir Charles did not mention the  subject of a channel tunnel, but if a  tunnel from Ceuta under the much  greater distance of the. Mediterranean  be possible, as he foreshadowed, it, requires only a little reasonable imagination to link up Charing" Cross and  Cape Town. Then in the piping  times of peace passengers may jump  on the Cape Town through express at  lhe London terminus and reach their  destination with perhaps one stop at  Lake Tanganyika for rest and rs-  froshment and 'to admire the view.

Contributions  Should  be  IVJade to the  Patriotic  Fund,   Red Cross and  Sister Associations  After the very definite, almost emphatic statement of ths prime minister, at St. John, N.B., on October 20  no further money should be diverted  from the Patriotic Fund by well meaning but rather thoughtless people who  claim that the equipment of Canadian  forces is instiffcient. Sir Robert has  made it very plain that the government is fully prepared, to make every  necessary provision for guns,' munitions and he appeals to the generosity of the public only on behalf of the  Canadian Patriotic Fund, the Red  Cross Society and sister associations.  We quote below an extract from the  speech in question:  "Regarding- machine guns, we realized early in the war the necessity of  an abundant supply, and orders have  been given from time to time for a.  very large number. Those ordered  during the first twelve months of the  war are now being rapidly delivered.  and they are more than sufficient to  equip two fully army corps up to the  highest standard of the enemy's  forces. During the past summer the  provision of machine guns became a  matter of vital interest to the Canadian people, as reports through the  press emphasized the necessity that  our forces should be adequately supplied with all the machine guns .tlmt  could be utilized. Patriotic individuals offered to contribute large sums  for this distinctive purpose. The gov-N  eminent of Ontario made a similar  patriotic proposal, and throughout the  country various communities generously .subseribed^to funds for this object. During my absence in Great  Britain my colleagues endeavored to  make it clear to the people that an  ample supply of machine guns had  been ordered and that these woul-d be  paid out of the Canadian treasury.  The treasury of Canada ought properly to bear all the cost of equipping*  and   maintaining   onr   forces     in  the  fi /a1 /I rnirl       t- V������ o +���������       11 ������**i r-       I-*-./-**.       auk      * --.-��������������� 1 5 _--���������"������������������  *_������_._*."���������._.     uuo.     t'itiL     .itt������ .TV     uccn    \jh i      i^wm. j- .  Nevertheless, the spirit and impulse  which prompted our people could not  be stayed, and, indeed, any attempt-to  stay it would have been misunderstood. Up to date the sums thus received by the government amount to  $773,327.95.  "In dealing with other needs which  will certainly arise, the government  will not fail to remember that these  generous and free-will, contributions  have been made, And ��������� in all'your  splendid generosity, do not forgst the  Patriotic Fund and ths Canadian Red  Cross Society They have done a.  great worlc, but thay have a still  greater work to do. Appeals which assuredly will not fall on deaf ears  must be made in the early future. See  that the response is generous and  ample. When yon are making provision for the Canadian Patriotic  Fund, the Canadian Red Cross Society, the Canadian War Contingent  association and other like patriotic  organizations, you may be assured  that the government will not fail to  make every necessary provision for'  guns,   munitions   and   equipments."

Incident at The Hague Conference in  1907 is Recalled  Admiral Lecaze, minister of marine, in referring in the French chamber of deputies to the sinking of the  steamer Ville De L-a Ciotat by a submarine and the incidental loss ol!  lives, told of an incident at The Hague  conference of 3 907. growing out of a  question as to the humanity of German naval, officers. *  "I  had the honor to. represent the!  French navy at Hie conference," said  Admiral Lecaze, "and remember the  dramatic sitting during which Baron  Marschaal von Bieberstein, Germany's chief delegate, regarding as  an insult something one French delegate said concerning humane sentiments of German officers, bounded  from his chair as if outraged, and  stood before us protesting in the  angriest of terms against any such reflection.  "I hear those words still, spoken before   the   representatives   of 44  countries,"  continued     the   admiral,   "and  say to myself that it is well for yon  Bieberstein to be dead before suffering the pain of seeing men whom he  had placed so high in public opinion  committing a most abominable act, an  act        premeditated,       cold-blooded,  .against   women   and   children.

I tried a  number of remedies but they did not  help me any, in fact the pain was  growing worse, and got so bad that I  was quite unable to do my housework.  I could not even sweep a floor.' I was  advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  and I am glad I acted upon the advice, for before I had been taking the  Pills long the pain began to subside,  and under the continued use disappeared entirely, and I have not since  been bothered with it in any way.

At sea our sailors have found gulls  of considerable service, their presence  oyer the water often helping them to  sight   the   periscopes   of   submarines.  in Flanders the shrill cries of tb,e  birds and their excited behavior have  warned our soldiers against a coming  poisoned gas attack.  "Before the smell of the fumes can  be perceived in the trenches the soldiers are awakened to their danger,  by the noise of the birds who have  detected the first fumes of the vile  infection,"  says  the  journal.

Xuartin ..Burrill has issued a letter to the Canadian farmers  thanking them for, ,the response to  the appeal for increased production  last year and asking them to continue  the work of supplying the "Life blood  of the Armies in the field.". He strongly suggested increased live stock nro-  duction.  Ti^e  Russian   Used  Austrian  to   Demonstrate   With  certain  Austrian  general operat-  in  Galicia   decided   he. would   at.-'  ; tempt  to  expfode  the  fiction  of Ccs-  : sack   invincibility.     To   this   end,   he  '.issued   most  positive   orders   that,   at  j all costs, a Cossack was to be taken  j prisoner   and   brought   to   him   unin-  ' .hired.    The task he thus set his men  | was  not an easy  one, but,  someho,w  j or   other,   it   was   duly   accomplished.  j A genuine, live Cossack was one day,  j produced in his presence.  :     The   general,   who     was   on   horse-  | back,   at. the  time,  told  his   men   to  give their prisoner freedom of action,  jand      then,      Without      dismounting,  watched him appease his hunger and  thirst.  "You see.", the general said, in effect, to his soldiers, "a Cossack eats  and drinks just as you or i do. There  is nothing superhuman about him."  Next, the prisoner was ordered to  walk about and talk. The general  Was determined his troops should  have a thorough object lesson and  judge with their own eyes that a  Cossack was really a man like themselves. Finally, a sword was put'into  the prisoner's hands, and he was told  to show his audience how he used  it.  Th Cossack appeared to enter  thoroughly into the spirit of the  thing, and gave quite an interesting  display. Everybody was highly entertained.  Meanwhile, the swordsman had  rapidly evolved a scheme of his own.  After a time, he manoeuvred in  such a manner as to get behind the  general and suddenly leaped upon  the horse, seized the general round  tiie waist, gripped the horse's Hanks  firmly between his knees and. in a  flash, was off like the wind, with  the general seated in front of him.  The general was toos;;stupified to  utter a sound. As for the soldiers,  their first momentary impression  was that this was part of the performance. By the time they had  recovered their presence of mind, it  was too late to' do anything", the  Cossack had hold of the reins, and  there was no stopping him.  To use their rifles was obviously  out of the question, as they would  have risked killing their own general.  The groups of men encountered  might have checked the animal's  course, but none of them had seen  the beginning of the affair, and they  were unable to make head or tail of  the strangely assorted couple. They  simply stood aside and gave the  flying horse free passage. "  The Cossack did not draw rein  until he had safely deposited his  prisoner in the Russian -lines. There  the Austrian general had plenty of  leisure to curse th_ day when the  idea he had been so proud of had  entered his head.  is "Uvowing Smaller Every Day.

crucial period in its history, those

the cause in which they labor is the
supreme issue. a
With'A the spring offensive on the
western frort about to. be undertaken the demand for Red Cross
supplies will be enormous���there
cannot possibly be an over-supply.
We have responded in fine style to
the call for funds to ensure that the
dependants of those on the firing
line will be reasonably well cared
for during the war, what shall be
said of us  if  we miserably   fail in
our other duty of seeing to   it that
the fellow who is   willing to make
to   secure  finance  for  other than | the supreme sacrifice, if neccessary,
bank roll is threatened, and they
are even unkind enough to say, in
effect- that if the B.C. growers
cannot meet U.S. competition on
the present tariff they ought to go
out of the business.
While it is to be regretted that
our prairie friends should take it so
much to heart we fancy the disinterested portion of the Dominion's
citizenship will hardly be inclined
to critize the federal authorities for
extending this deserved assistance
to an industry that is bound to be
prominent in Canada's numerous
commercial activities. ;

Carefui enquiry   has shown that
for  labor alone the' cost   of  production  in  B.C.   is   20   per  cent*
higher than in Oregon and Washington, and   that the increase is 25
, per cent,   when  it comes to spray
equipment, boxes, crates, etc.    The
same investigation showed that  in
the  four   northwestern  states the
cost of producing  is  almost   $1.07
per box, yet for the four years ending 1915 the average selling  price
of U.S. apples has been 20 cents  a
box   below   average   cost   of   production.
The    small   amount   of    added
expenditure  this  extra protection
will entail upon fruit  users  should
be  cheerfully  borne   to   head   off
cutthroat competition of this sort.
There is no danger of the Canadian
growers cornering'ltho  market and
forcing up  the  price  as Canada's
apple crop this year  will  be  more
than ample to supply overy demand.

The midnight of Capitalism is in our
midst, an institution thriving upon
the breast of competitive commercial
intercourse. Yet the darkest hour is
before the dawn, and after the strife
of industrial competition comes the
clear sky and cairn of industrial cooperation, taking the place of commercial rivalry, and behold, a child
called Socialisn is born, or, in another appellation, the brotherhood of
, .But before these grand results can
be made manift st harmony and unity
of thought must predominate in the
minds of men' and the llrst step in the
right direction to bring about this
unity is to first find the causo of ho
much human Htrife. Competition
commercially is the chief complaint,
lind it i-: not to tho highest and host
actions of the human mind. Tt originated in the days, when might made

If they do this, he declares,  victory is in sight. j  "I   am   not   betraying  any   secret," \  -Mr.   Pinchon   writes,  "in  saying*  that j  the   allies   have   not  always   been   ia j  agreement since the beginning* of the  war     on   tactics,   military  operations j  and diplomatic negotiations. Everyone  knows     dissensions     have     existed;  everyone  Knows there  have  been  divergencies of view on the part of the  governments   of  France    and     Great  Britain on tho conduct of eastern, affairs.     Such   incidents  are   inevitable  between powers bf whom none thinks  of  dominating and  imposing its  sovereign will on .any other side, but, on  the contrary, all consider themselves  as equals in like perils.  "In the coalition which unites Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey and  Bugaria there' is only one- country  ���������which governs and can be master,  and that is the German empire, which  itself is dominated by Prussia. It is  the whip over the governments which  it has made partners in an enterprise  of servitude.  "Austria-Hungary would he bankrupt,  together  with Turkey and  Bul  garia, were it not' for the financial  support of Berlin. And all three  would be powerless in both arms and  diplomacy if they could not lean on  the Kaiser's general staff and the  authority of hi;; ambassadors and  plenipotentiaries. Neither Franz  Joseph nor the Sultan, nor the libertine Cobourg of Sofia, would defy  Europe if not directed by the German  power.  "It is diplomacy of Berlin which  has carried on all the- Balkan intrigues  against Russia, France, Great Britain  and Italy. It cannot be doubted that  pecuniarily they have cost very much  and that Germany lias only received  very middling co-operation" from her  obsequious .dependent."?. Still, for the  present at least, she has attained her  ends, which have in the end profited  by the lesson of events. The govern-  ments, by their representatives, have  met and laid their beads together.  "We have not only failed in harmony of plans, but prescience, and  when we have decided we have not  always counted all their requirements  and the risks: we have not always  known how to make, at the right moment, all the sacrifices on whicli success depended. In these matters we  ofteiifjiave been inferior to Germany;  it rests unon us to he superior in tlio  future."  Want to Know  About Canada  Soldiers   in   Trenches   Seek   Information About Possibilities of This  Country  A   London   correspondent     of     the  Free   Press   writes:     "One   result   ot  the   fraternizing   in   the   trenches   of  Canadian   soldiers     with     those   of  Prance   and   Belgium,   is   illustrated  in letters received at the Canadian offices  in  London.

That     their   action     has  been     prompted     by     conversations  with   the   Canadian   boys   - in   sufficiently indicated by the fact thait each  man    makes    an express request    to  be   informed     about     a     particular  province.     Thus   one   writes   for   details   concerning     British   Columbia's  fruit industry, another requires bool^s  on   the   wheat  growing areas  of the  prairie   provinces;    a third about the  mining districts of Ontario, and others?1)  about   lumbering,   fishing   and   stock-  raising.    It does not require much insight to guess that some' ardent British  Columbian  has  discoursed  about  the advantages  of his  province,  and  that the men from Manitoba and Ontario have been no less active in imparting      information.    , Frequently  Canadians   themselves   write   asking  for books to he forwarded to a French  or  Belgian  soldier.    On    the    other  hand, some of the Canadians in England to whom the writer has spoken,  having looked on this island land and  found it good, express the determination  to  establish themselves  in  this  country after the  war.    Similarly, it  is  to he expected that somo Canadians will find��������� attractions on the other  Bide of the channel and stay to make  n homeTn the iand in which they have  fought sq. valiantly.    That there will  be a  great ...change among the men  of all nationalities seems to be without doubt.  Canada, however, holds tho field  among the majority, and all eyea  aro turned to tho great Dominion.  The commitments for which Canada has made herself responsible and  tlio determination voiced in the  speeches ol! her prominent men on  both Hides of tho,ocean, havo opened  tho eyes of even'well informed ^people who thought, they had the measure  of Cuiiadu's power to aid llio incll.or-  liuul. Not (ko least; of these rovcullng  factors has been the splendid success  of the Canadian war loan.���������Manitoba  Free   Press.  Newfoundlander-!   at   Dnrclanollen  "We   went.

Getting Ready for  Canada's Big Army  Work of Bringing^ Force up to Half  Million to Commence at Once  Preparations are under way in the  militia department to meet the increased demand upon the labors and  energies consequent upon the new  year  decision   ot   the  government   to  irnig  ��������������� -w ___.KK_S  What       Farmers      Suffer     Annually  Through   Loss Caused by the  Weed Nuisance  "I am a Saskatchewan farmer," was  the subject of an address of more  than usual interest which Hugh Mc-  Kellar, editor of the Saskatchewan  Farmer, Moose Jaw, arid former deputy minister of agriculture for Manitoba, delivered before an audience of  delegates to the convention of provincial agricultural societies in the  convocation hall of the university at  Saskatoon.  "Though 1 have, christened this address, 'I am a Saskatchewan farmer,'  I ��������� am not a Saskatchewan farmer,"  began Mr. MCKellar, putting his audience in good humor from the start.  "I have come to tell you about your  own work and I hope that in" the  ! course of my remarks, you will catch  something that will stick and that  will be of use to you when you go  home.  "You should be proud to say 'I am  a Saskatchewan farmer.' Three hundred and twenty acres of Saskatchewan land is what I call an ideal  homestead and any man who has that 1 LUe  amount in this province has a right  to be proud of it as a heritage. Away  with that feeling 'I am only a farmer/  Say that you are a farmer in Saskatchewan and be proud of it. Two thousand years ago to be a Roman citizen was a great honor and now it is  just as much an honor to be a Saskatchewan farmer.  "I hold that this birthright brings  duties to you and the first of these  is to keep your land clean and fertile.  Cultivation, that's whore cleanliness  come: in. We had a great crop last  year. "Wiseacres say polienization  was perfect and there was no. wind.  Don't you believe a word of it. If the  fields wrere ever tilled and cultivated  properly they were last year. But in  the fiefel behind the agricultural college here they have 25.2 bushel crops  every year, if ihe farmer di4~as the  agricultural college does his crop  would be just as much a success year  after year. Last year the land wras <  there and. cultivation was there.  "Weeds!

Ont.,  recruiting  meeting held  recently,   Bis   Honor  audi-  re-  At  at  Judge Barron spoke to a large  ence,   and   in   the   courso   of  his  marks spoke in part as follows:  "When we recall the savage cruelty  of the man who brutally murdered  Edith Cavell, whose only wrong was  obedience to God-given humanity, we  are indiposed to look for example  to anything that a German does, yet  f we in Canad/i might with profit to  t ourselves and advantage to the em-  j piro remember that the millions of  Germans in their private homes have  fused with the millions of Germans at  the front intp one common will; that  Germans who fight and the Germans who work have become a single  thing, one united and solid phalanx;  that ever since, the war began everyone of their seventy millions, men,  women and children, have had the  one thought and"have worked for one  common cause. Theirs is and has  been a complete obsession. Our activity, on the other hand, seldom sets  beyond a nervous perusal of the  morning papers, and our enthusiasm  ends with an occasional subscription.  We are.content to let others do our  fighting for us, and if we who stay  at home find time for anything from  our ordinary pursuits it is not to encourage, l������ut to criticize.

It will also mean an annual  expenditure of $500,000,000 on the  basis of $1,000 per man. in uniform.  This was the*, estimate made by Sir  Thomas White, minister of finance,  when the authorized number was two  hundred and fifty thousand,. and  when he declared that the expenditure for the coming fiscal year would  approximate $250,000,000. It will not  far exceed that amount.  It is now more than probable that  Canada will have two full army corps,  consisting of four full divisions, on  the firing line b3r the beginning of  spring. This will constitute a splendid  representation for the Dominion.  Preparations for an extensive recruiting campaign are, now under  way. New regiments will shortly be  Mithorized for the various cities,  towns and rural districts throughout  Canada.  these the minister of  that, ha has decided  special regiments in-  more Indian regi-  regiment, a naturalized Japanese-Canadian regiment and  a colored regiment.

When shall we  wake up? I'll tell you, when history  repeats itself. After, this war is over,  ii not before, there then will bs a  rude aw*akening, but it may then be  too late. There will be then one  universal question, the same tliat was  put to every claimant for preferment,  after the close of the Civil War in  the United States. Whether it be in  federal, provincial or municipal politics; whether it be in private life or  in public life; whether it be on the  rungs of the social ladder; whether  it be in business or private competition, the one universal question will  be:     'What is your war record?'  "If we cannot do better than say  in reply: 'We helped when io help  came bur way;' if when khaki is the  insignia, of the fighting man, we parade in it without doing the duty it  [demands; if our energies find first  deliverance in our private pursuits  and only what is 16ft we give to the  empire; if 'in this awful crisis we  .give only second thoughts and little,  if any, of our ease, our blood and  our wealth, and continue to surfeit  out an apathetic indifference as to  many frozen.churls, then the answer  to the question, 'What is your war  record ?'��������� will consign us to everlasting dishonor, for be it remembered  that the bounty jumper, infa'mous as  ihe was, found favor in the eyes of  the American people over the man  who stayed at home to make money,  that he might hire others to do his  fighting* for him."
