President Reid  presided and there was a fair turnout  of members.    ���������  ' A fairly complete sketch of the new  map of the Creston Valley that Chas,  Moore, P.L.S., -is. bring put was on exhibition, the maker wishing the board  to look it over and recommend any  desirable additions or changes. A  committee- consisting of Messrs. Henderson, Pevan and Lowenberg was  named to go into the matter and report to the next: board meeting. The  boai"d will be glad to have any and all  parties interested inspect the map and  have any suggestions' that tend to  make it as correct and complete as  possible.  The board unanimously agreed to  favor the provincial legislators at  Victoria with a couple of boxes of Creston apples be be served in the legislative restaurant this month. Jas. Cook  will pack some of his very best Spitz  and'' other seasonable varieties and  forward theni this week, and J. H.  Schofield, M.P.P., will be asked to see  that the fruit get- on the tables in  good shape. .  A resolution to cut the membership  fee from 810 to $5 a y'ear was discussed  but not adopted. It was felt that at  the old fee the board could get free  of all debt find that 1917 eould be started with a clean sheet all round and, if  desirable, at the $5 membership.  The Princeton board of . trade asked  endorsation of a resolution calling on  B.C. government to employ all interned aliens on the trans-provincial road  this season. The .members. for Ymir  will be notified that the proposition is  a good one, and to lend it eyery assistance possible.  There was one communication from  a possible settler from Jeiiett, Sask..,  who enquired for details of any land  situate not too far from the station  aud not too heavily timbered, that  could be bought for $5 or $10 per acre.  Anyone who can accommodate the  gentleman can secure his name from  the secretary.  . In the absence of W. H.  adjournment was moved  McCreath.  1916 birthday. There was dancing,  cards and various other amusements;  and refreshments, and the best *>f  good times from start to finish for all  present.  Spring activities have started at full  speed.

The use of .torches, 02* of artificial  lights of any kind, or of spears or  snares in the capture of trout is  prohibited.  Fish caught during the open season  may be retained in possession.  The use of nets in the taking of fish  in the fresh water lakes and non tidal  waters is entirely prohibited.  ector Move $  Trustees* Report  Wynndel  Miss Annie Johnson left on Tuesday  for Macleod, Alta. She will stop off  at Fernie for a few days yisit with her  brother, Pte. Billy Johnson, who is  billeted in that city with the 225th  Battalion.  The first pansies of the season were  picked Saturday, the 11th, by Mrs.  Sam Moon.  The dance on Saturday night was  voted by all present the. best ever.  Messrs. Mauberg and Swanson of Canyon City supplied the bulk of the  music. About 25 couples, from all  points in the Valley, were present.  Creston school trustees are just in  receipt of the regulation report of Inspector Dove,-who made his second  inspection of the school last week.  The document, deals largely with the  necessity of providing bet ter educational facilities and on that point he  has this to say.  "I must renew my recommendatio.i  that your board make provision for an  additional teacher after   the sumuiei-  holidays for, if   any   of  the present  pupils succeed   in  passing   into   the  Intermediate High School,  as is probable, this  would throw  the .work  of  three high school classes as well as of  the Entrance class upon one teacher,  which is more than any teacher can  do justice   to.    The only alternative  would be tha   pupils passing in.to the  Intermediate High School  class must  seek theirfurther education elsewhere.  After   commending   the   board  for  their efforts to secure a  water supply  to secure the school against fire,   he  recommends the placing of ah alarm  gong in the hall  without - delayer. He  would also like to see a thermometer  in each room, as well as the completion  of some other minor repairs.  On the matter of medical inspection  he adyises the board to "request the  medical health officer to make his inspection of the school, in future, as  soon as possible after the opening oi"  the school in  August, ..when  it is of  uri oroiners nave s-uiVLeu on  erection of a "24x32 ft., story-and-a-  half house.

In view of the commonly-accepted  interpretation of the fishery regulations that fishing for trout of all kinds  is unlawful between Nov. 15th and  April 30th, The Review is pleased to  learn from most reliable authority  that Creston anglers can do all the  fishing they want to at any month In  the year in thi streams hereabouts,  the only limit to the sport being that  only 25 fish of any or all varieties may  be taken in one day.  Of courso trout under 8 inches in  length must not be retained, and fishing through the ice for trout is illegal..  It is likewise unlawful to buy, sell or  oxpose for sale any trout under 3  pounds in weight.  As many local disciples of Isaak  Walton find rare sport in trying thoir  luck iu tho open spaces in the river  during the winter this information  will be read with satisfaction. Tho  regulations, which became effective  last spring, by special ordor in council,  are uu .follows:  No ���������.tit- shall flab for, catch or kill  trout of any kind from tho 15th day of  November, in each yoar to the 30th  ,u,y ..r .....i1. r_.P..<_v_"'__!ir_ both   ehivH ?

This is made possible by education  (and co-operation.    Sixteen per cent of  j the men and women engaged in-agri-  i culture  in Denmark,  between 20 and  50 years of age, have passed through  high school.    There are 1,100 Danish  co-operative     dairy     companies   with  lfiO.000   members.     There   are  40   cooperative bacon factories with 100,000  members,   and   in   1907     there     were  1,800,000  pigs    slaughtered    in   these  factories.   There are eight egg exporting societies with 70,000 members and  they  export  some   110,000,000  eggs  a  year. ���������     *  Between 1890 and 1005 the population of the country increased by about  20 per cent, but in the same time the  exports of agricultural products more [  than doubled, amounting in the latter j  year to $1.00,000,000.

Hawley, president of the Aero  Club of New York, said:  "This new* German monoplane will  undoubtedly bring out the speedy  French and British biplanes, which  1 understand, have not been used, because of the difficulty of having wide  enough landing grounds for them at"  the theatre of war."  Henry Woodhonse, a governor o'f  the Aero Club, said he had heard  about the "Fokker" class planes of  the Germans, and was surprised that  they had not appeared in the news  despatches before.  "Both the British and French have  machines that can make the same  i speed or more than 160 miles an hour,  but they have not used them extensively because the Germans were not  using ythem, and they are difficult to  handle and trained pilots are scarce.  This new-* development of the Germans  does not mean that they will be supreme in the air, except in Russian  territory, where they have thousands  of aviators to the hundreds of Russians. It takes several thousand aeroplanes and trained aviators to give  supremacy.  "As a matter of fact, the British  navy has been supreme in the air as  well as on the water during the. whole  war. This is largely due to the large  number of 'America' ahd 'super-America' flying boats, made iu this country, which are equipped with two 160-  horsepower motors. More than 3 00  of these great machines and about  500 of the smaller types ��������� have been  delivered to Great Britain during the  last year. One American firm lias  orders for 1,100 more, including some  huge (lying boats, which are veritable  battle cruisers. Several other firms  are constructing large land and water  aeroplanes witii two and more engines."

A great  deal can be accomplished in this direction by.deep ploughing, constant cultivation, and thoi-quglr tillage. There  should he a proper system of rotation.  Especially where one crop lias been  grown for several years, a different  one should be planted this year. Green  manures and cover crops should be  used, as much as possible in their  proper rotation.  "Of the organic substances, manure,  both solid and liquid, is the most important and should be utilized Wherever possible. All material of an organic nature, such as leaves and bedding of various sorts, should be composted and the' compost applied to the  soil. Special attention should be  given also to the conservation of wood  ashes. Depending on the character of  the wood, they contain potash in  quantities varying ordinarily from 3  to 10 ..per cent. All .tree trimmings,  brush cuttings, etc., sliould be burned  and the  ashes, therefrom utilized.  "The application of lime to many  soils is of undoubted benefit.

In the United States there was, in  the five years ending with 1914, a  steady decline in the number of cattle  other than milch cows. The total  decline for the five years was nearly  6,000,000 head. During the same-time  the number of dairy cattle remained  about stationary. In the last year,  however, cattle, other than milch  cows, showed an increase of over  2,300,000, while milkers have increased by less than half that number.

Complaint Against Canadians  Archdeacon Madden of Liverpool,  who died recently after a very short  illness, says the Canadian Associated  Press, was always fond of relating his  Canadian experiences. Of the Canadians he made one complaint that  they would uot respond to the humorous side of his speeches. He invited  them to encourage hi in with a little  applause, or even groans, but th*������y  sat stolid. Even one night when the.  speeches were long, and the evening-  late, and the chairman gave out ns  tho closing hymn, "The Morning Light  is Breaking," no one smiled.  One day lie was strap-hanging in a  Liverpool tram whon he heard eloso  by certain mutterings and perceived  a strong smell of Scotch. Then up  rose a ^ig workingman, steadying  himself for ono minute, ho glared  round on the passengers, saying "Am  f the only religious layman in tho car?  Merc Archdeacon, take jny scat."

CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, MAR. 17  @������ M  The Review's estimate ot* the;  probable cost of moving the Kootenay River ferry to its proposed new  location, and doing the necessary  grading for the approaches to it on  either river bank, has been getting  some little attention this week, and  it is satisfactory to know that in  almost every case onr figures are  well on the safe side, particularly  were the -work done by contract���������  one gentleman, not in the habit of  working    for     pleasure     entirely,  to say nothing of the innumerable  back yard gardens and vacant lot  cultivation, it becomes at once  apparent that the prairie people  can supply most of their vegetable  needs fairly satisfactorily from the  home town growers.  While   it  may  seem  arbitrary,  and possibly contrary to the  constitution   of the  Union,   to  make  such' a  move,   at least   no   harm  could cuine of doing some educational work along this line.    If during  tho greater part of the season local  ranchers cannot compete   with the  prairie growers on certain   c������asscs  of  vegetables the sooner   we quit  trying to beat   fche othor fellow At  his own game  (to  say   nothing of  the freight and his  cheaper land)  the better for all concerned.    Tliere  are plenty  of  lines  on  which our  prairie   competitor   is   not   to   be  feared and this year is   none   too  certainty of a stern reality of the  "fight or pay" (or both) maxim  being brought'much closer   home.  stating he would be tempted to do ^^ to <*iseover which lines  to go  I heavy ou and whieh to shy often���������  except for very early trade.  tins is the <iay of specialising m  - * "<      m t     i������ _B������.-"_."__-_  tne wnoi** juo _._-r <������.-_.v.������J.

However, in view of the inglorious success of the government  candidates in the recent Vancouver  and Victoria bye-elections, . it is  hardly likely the department, in  such a critical time, would so flaunt  public opinion, as expressed in the  petition asking for the ferry's  removal, as to undertake this new  roadmaking without first, of all  making some pretence at impartial  enquiry into the matter prayed for  by the petitioners. The government's life is too uncertain to go on  with any such hazardous undertaking at this juncture.  iSSS Vegetables  If not too late in tho season and  the gentlemen comprising the committee on drafting recommendations for the "packing and shipping  of produce offered for salp in 1010"  arc not unwilling, it seems to The  Review that the Fruit Growers  Union might find it worth while to  continue tho labors of this committee in the direction of recommending what vegetables the  Union will handle this year.  We cannot help thinking that  for other than tho early Reason  trad*? this: year will not ho any  jho-'o profitable than 1015 for ouch  lines as cabbages, green peas, beets,  carrots,   lettuce,     radishes,     green  hi th*** easy-money days on tho  prairie vegetable (Mill ure got very  little attention and the limited  qtiaiitity of garden truel*. local  growers had to Hell -.vuh quite readily    diiipo.'.cd    'ii'.

The same state of affairs exactly  prevailed in Cranbrook.  During 19L6 British Columbia is  expected to enroll 36,000 men for  Canada's fighting forces���������or about  700 a week. If all other provincial  points are as unfortunate as this���������  well, it wont be long before- the  militia authorities, as well as citizens generally, begin-to realize that  something's got to be done or something's going to happen.  And already there be those who  do not hesitate to say that there  are but two alternatives: Some  sort of conscription or better financial arrangmeuts so that active  service will look more attractive to  business men.  J. H. Burnham, M.P. (Peterboro)  has called the government's attention to the better pay phase. He  asks that the soldiers' pay be  placed somewhere near what the  recruit has previously earned at  his trade, that the lives of soldiers  be insured, and that fcho soldiers  compensation in case of wounds  or sickness be placed on a par with  what ho would get under workmen's compensation.  While rather definite assurance  has been giynn by Premier Borden  that there will bo no conscription  in Canada, if tho need should ariso  tlio compulsion can be immediately  point vhafc opposition criticism is  very largely of Mr. Bowser's  actions���������party government being  almost non-existent, or so pere-  meated with fche Bowser bacilli as  to be hardly worth the calling by  any other name ���������the parfcy allowed  fche Premier the- free hand and they  must siukor swim with him.  Manitoba Conservatives tried  indentically the same tactics  government supporters are alleged  to favor in B.C., and failed miserably���������and in Sir James Aikens  they had a leader of considerable  more prestige than speaker Ebberts  is accused of having.  laek  These are three "specials" from our Grocery Department  that come to us offhand.

It seems to The Review the  Conservatives have nothing to  gain and everything to lose iu  making Mr. Bowser the party  goat. The premier has outlined  and is determined to give effect to  a policy that should return any  government to power provided the  right class of candidates are placed  in nomination to enforce, and in  the whole people's interests enact,  those measures, if placed in charge  of public affairs.  Instead of casting around   for a  new leader if the party   will  overhaul its nominees,   discarding  the  Mackaysand Macleans, theHunters  and Cavens, and get some  real red  blooded candidates, who have some  reputation for ability to thimk and  the nerve to give utterance to their  reflections  even   to   boss   Bowser,  instead of the consideroble galaxy of  mere voting jackanapes  who  now  draw sessional indemnity at Victoria  if tho day cannot be saved  at least  the  nuclons  of  a  real  opposition  will be  assured���������something  to  be  devoutly wished i'or by tho country  as   well   aa both   the   contending  parties.  ������  A.

His integrity was"  absolute. His obedience to law was  complete. He did not follow His own  will, nor yield to the inclinations of  the flesh, but obeyed in His actions  and His teachings the councils of God,  which has been revealed in 'the scriptures and which has been made known  to Him by the direct revelation of the  divine will in meeting the tempter.

Jesus loved with a perfect love, with  no thought or desire for praise of men.  He did good to all as opportunity  offered". The sick He healed, the disconsolate were given consolation, as  He loyed He taught others to love, to  "Love thy neighbor as thyself," love  your enemies, bless them that curse  you, do good to them that hate you,  and pray for them that despitefully  use you and persecute you. There is  no mistaking this measure, and it is  easy for every man to measure himself by it; it is the standard-by which  every man will be measured.  He was just in His dealings with  man. .He never oppressed any but  sought the liberation of all, He recognized, however, that sin was the pow  er that enslaved men, and though He  sternly rebuked those  who by their  teachings and actions were helping in-  *| to bondage His attacks were directly  against the sin   itself.   To   fche man  who was denied his rights of inheritance by a treacherous   brother   and  who came to Jesus seeking intervention in his behalf, He said. "Beware of  covetousness, for behold a man's life  consisteth   not  in  the abundance of  the things which he  possesseth."   In  Athis He struck at fche root of the   injustice. The injustices and hypocricies  of the Pharisees were condemned in  no uncertain   terms when Jesus said,  to them, "Woe unto you  Scribes and  Pharisees,   hypocrites,   for   ye    pay  tithes of mint and anise and cummin,  and have omitted the mightier matter  of the    law,   judgment,   mercy   and  faith,"   They had not   been just in  their dealings, notwithstanding they  made very loud professions of religion-  On another dccassion He charged them  with having condemned fche guiltless,  ������____���������_������a?a?& ?t? <���������������_���������������������������-���������������_ Ai4u' CpSa!*  !J-!}?���������������!>_ yi ygiiwyii uiljf.

Jesus was  above these oppressions and injustices.  He injured no man, dealing fairly and  honorably with those who dealt unjustly with Kim. This is the measure  of man; fche standard to which every  man conform if he would be one with  Christ.  Even those who deny the divinity  of Chi ist freely acknowledge the  purity and virtue of His life. No stain  or suspicion rests upon Him. He liy ed  above reproach and. fcbersby ssfc s.  standard for all men, holding His  teachings in this regard ave the highest set for men, holding., that every  heart should, be kept free from the  thought of evil, and that the harbored  thought of evil alone is sufficient to  stain the soul, This is the measure by  which all men will be measured.  The path of true loye, justice and  mercy, was fche path followed by  Jesus, regardless of the opinion of  men. His course was , so different  from that of His Own household that  His brethe-n thought He was beside  himself. Though he was a Jew he did.  not hesitate to tell"fche Jewish nation  its sins and warn its people of the  judgment to come. In opposition to  the views of the wisest and most  learned of. His people He declared fche  kingdon of God was a spiritual kingdom, and on one .occasion He stated  the*t*t?quirements of the divine law to  His o*5Vh disciples who were following  Him, and ^from thafc time many of:  his disciples went-back and walked no  more with Him." To stand by the  truth even at the cost of losing^ considerable part of His following required a courage that is not common  among men. Jesus openly declared  the sins of His own nation, the  hypocricies of the priests, and the injustices of the ruling classes.  This, then, is what I take for true  religion.   These are but a  few po'nts  that show the  wonderful stature of  Christ.   They are   revealed to us in  His person, and they furnish us with  the true measure by  which. , we may  measure ourselyes.    As  a means   of  developing   these qualities fche Lord  established  His church,  in which he  placed Hi_ chosen officers of apostles,  prophets,   evangelists,    pastors    and  teachers,   with   all   the Rifts of His  spirit, for the perfecting of the saints  for the worl: of the  ministry,, J'or tho  edifying of the body of Christ, "till we  all come in tho unity of the faith and  of the knowledge of the son of God,  unto a perfect man, unto the measure  of the stature of the fulness of Christ."

B. ���������*  ������55ST  ONE OF THE  WORLD'S' MOST INTERESTING PORTS  Archangel Now Takes a Leading Place Among the Wheat Exporting Ports, and Should be Kept in Mind in Calculating  The Possibilities of the  Hudson Bay Route  One of the most interesting ports i  in the world today, is Archangel,  Russia's Arctic seaport on the i  White Sea. Previous to the war  trade this was confined to occasional exports of timber, fish, furs and  other local products of Northern  Russia; but now* Archangel is the  only part of European Russia open  l'or foreign trade by direct sea communication, ' and together with  Vladivostok- forms one of the two  channels for supply for Russia.  Archangel is situated on the Dwina  river, which at that point is about  two and a half miles wide, with a  depth of between'. 22 to 42 feet. The  tide from, the White Sea. amounts to  about, three- feet, and at various  landing-stages the depth of the  water is, as a rule, 22 feet at low  tide.  Archangel is a long, narrowly built  city, with suburbs and outlying  houses extending to the White Sea,  the extension being more than 30  miles. The main street is more than  six miles long. The shipping on the  river down to the White Sea is considerable. The city has 35 large  piers today, against three piers two  years ago. Not less than 103 huge  warehouses have sprung up in the  last year, but yet there is a great  insufficiency of piers and warehouses, as a result of which ships  arriving have to lie in the stream  for Aveelcs and weeks before they  can unload. However, the authorities have done wonders and are preparing and planning to meet the  enormous traffic next spring. The  chief drawback is, ,as is well known,  the question of ice in the winter, and  if it had not been for this obstacle  Archangel would be the finest port in  the world, as it has nearly 70 mibS-s  of river frontage available for ships  drawing up to 23 feet.  Archangel's   magnificent   system  of  inland     waterways,       through       the  Dwina  river,  is   a   great  feature,   as  it is possible to. ship goods direct by-  water    to    nearly    all the    principal  towns in    Russia.    Barges and river  boats,   carrying  up   to   2,000   tons   of  freight   and   drawing   about   six   feet  of   water*,    can be satisfactorily used  in      carrying   freight    all   over   the  country.     The   Dwina    river     begins  freezins: in October.   This year it'was j  hoped lo  keep  the river open  from!  Archangel out to the White Sea till  about December 15.    Two of the largest   ice-breakers     in    the   world   are  now in Archangel, aud several more  ice-breakers-are jnow being constructed in England.  The work that was carried out last  summer and autumn by the Russian  authorities was most admirable, in  spile of the great accumulation of  goods and steamers arriving day and  night. Goods for the Russian government have been moved by the narrow-  gauge railway line and goods* sent to  private firms have been shipped *by  boats or barges unless packed for parcels post, when they have been taken  liy the railway company. Resides Archangel, at Kola, in Lapland, across the  Murman penisula, a railway is now being constructed, to be completed in  ���������this' winter, connecting the Arctic  ocean with the peninsula, so that  - Kola can be used altetnrively~ a  Kola can be used alternately,- especially from January to May, when it  is impossible Lo keep Archangel open  even with, very powerful ice breaker?. Around this port of the Arctic  ocean tho Gulf Stream creates sufficient warmth to prevent, ice. Many  shipping agents at Archangel aro  firranglng I'or offices and habitation  i.t Kola" from early January until  May. The use of tho White Sea for  transfer of freight by boat between  the (wo bi ("fens of railway under  roust ruction will roquiro lho servicer  of many ice breakers, and thes& af*e  being 'count ruet.ed also io bih'v'o an  cargo carriers during the winter. IL  ,!r; thought Unit the railway connection between Pctrogrud and Kola  mny commence early this spring.  Thus Moscow, Pctrograil, Kief and  Siboriu. will ho linked together with  Archangel and Kola.

Just outside of Archangel a large fur -farm  for breeding blue, white ahd black  foxes is an interesting feature.  Today Archangel is one of the  most important wheat exporting  ports of the world, a fact to be kept  in mind in calculating the possibilities of Port Nelson and the Hudson  Bay route as an outlet for the  Western Canadian wheat crop. The  United Kingdom, Denmark, Norway,  Sweden, Belgium, and France have  their own consulates at Archangel,  The United States has no consular  representative.  Seeking 3 "Non-Rust Wheat  Experiments   Being   Made  to   Develop  a Species of Wheat That Will  Resist  Rust  Experiments are now under way  at the Minnesota State Agricultural  college which are expected to have a  marked effect on the future production of -wheat in Minnesota and the  Northwest. The object the experts  have set for themselves1 is the development of a species of wheat  which shall resist rust. The ineffectiveness of the present" to do this is  an annual worry to American farmers and grain dealers, and a source  of loss amounting in the aggregate  .to many millions of dollars in unfavorable years.  The authorities at the Minnesota  School of Agriculture are endeavoring to combine two importan������ species  of wheat, the blue stem, which is  widely grown in the American northwest, and is famous for its prolificacy, arid tlVe' diiruni, equally noted  for its- rust-resisting qualities. The  United States government and the  state of Minnesota have already expended .$30,000 in the work, with  important results. The cross has  been successful, after ten years of  experimentation, - but the college is  withholding the new seed from the  farmers until certain difficulties have  been overcome: Among these is-the  poor baking quality of the new  species.  Until this defect is remedied the  cross-strain will not be ^iven to the  world. It is understood lhat the hybrid, plant has retained perfectly the  high productivity of the blue stem  wheat and the sound rust resistivity  ot the durum. But the authorities  will not , be satisfied until they can  bring the new strain up to the proper baking standard.  GERMANS PLAN TO GE  FOOTHOLD IN AMERICA!  War Interrupts Efforts Which May be  Resumed   When   Peace   is  Declared  Extraordinary revelations of reputed plans of Germany to establish ��������� a  foothoid in several republics of the  western hemisphere, and in the Danish West indies, in defiance of the  Monroe doctrine, are in Lhe possession  of the committee of foreign relations  of the United States senate.  The documents in the possession of  the committee purport to prove:  That Germany sought to establish a  sphere of influence in Nicaragua by  purchase of the inter-oceanic canal  route and the right to establish naval  bases. v   '  That Germany sought to gain a foothold in Colombia by negotiating for  an inter-oceanic canal concession and  the purchase of plantations and_ the  establishment of a naval base at Cartage *.  That Germany gained paramount influence in Paraguay by organizing the  army, and is carrying" out .a similar  plan in Chile.  That Germany sought to gain a foothold in Hayti through control of the  customs and the establishment of a  naval base at Mole St. Nicholas.  That Germany practically controls  the island.of St. Thomas by lease from  Denmark, and has established there a  base of great strategic value, particularly because of its proximity to Porto  Rico  and the  Panama  Canal.  The committee also has documentary evidence indicating that, although  the European war has interrupted the  prosecution of these plans, Germany  plans to resume the efforts to participate in the affairs in the western hemisphere as soon as peace shall be restored.  ulj.;lMin&il  ANALYSIS   DISCLOSES   INTERESTING   CONDITIONS  Carelessness of Our PeopJe is the Cause of One of the Heaviest  Drains Upon Our Resources* and Much Loss Could be  Avoided by Exercising Ordinary Precautions  An analysis of the fire losses in Can-o  ada during 1914, as compiled by the i  Monetary Times, discloses some inter- j  esting   conditions.     This     statement  substantiates   and verifies the charge  that carelessness is the cause of seventy-five  per cent,  of  Canada's    fire  loss. *   ���������'   .  It would naturally be expected that  the greater number of fires .'would be  in factories using power or fires for  manufacturing processes, and where  accumulations of shavings and other  waste are exposed to fire from fric-  tioh, spontaneous combustion, or  other causes.  Such is not the case.    By    far the |  greater number of fires were in build-1  ings in which none of these risks oc- j  cur.     Factories   contributed   only   59  fires; various mills only 12;  laundries  s- engine houses, 1; machine shops, 3;  Farm Labor Conditions  Solution     of   Farm   Help   Problem   in  Farmers' Own Hands  Of the 400 farmers visited last summer in connection with the survey  conducted.by the commission of conservation, 15 per cent, employ male  help by the year; 11 per cent, by the  month; 31 per cent, by the day; the  balance employing it in various ways.  Sixty-four per cent, employ Canadian  born help; 13 per cent. British born  help, while two per cent, employ help  of alien birth. A large majority report the labor satisfactory, while four  per cent, report labor unsatisfactory.  Fourteen per cent, employ married  men, but only ten per cent, have a  house on the farm for the hired man.  Unfortunately many of those who  have houses are employing single men.  and   only   a   few  cases   were   found  Germany on Verge of Starvation  ' The fact that Germany actually is  on the verge of starvation is becoming more apparent daily. The conclusion is not founded on the statements of alleged "neutrals."  The- Madgeburg Ische Zeitung predicts a most aeri'ou' situation. "We  may expect a new period of hungering*  on an extensive scale," it says. "The  gigantic burden of taxation which  awaits us and the temporary retrogression of our economic life wilt  compel every section of the population to screw down their standards  of living. We have lived during the  past decades much beyond the measure which must be observed in these  things."  Ammunition is Expensive  It Costs  More to Shell Than to Build  a Town  One thing the present war has  shown us���������it costs infinitely more to  destroy a village-or a town by high  explosive shells than it costs to build  it.  Perhaps the finest instance of. this  is Souchez.  Souchez; is, as an artillery officer  expressed it, "beautifully" destroyed.  There is not one stone'''left standing  on another; there is not even a whole  stone or brick.. Never in the history  of war has any village received so  many shells as Souchez, and their  cost would certainly suffice to build  up that village again fifty or a hundred   times   over.  There exists A a certain viaduct  which was blown up at the beginning of the war and then repaired  by the French at. a cost bf about  $70,000. . The Germans disliked that  viaduct, and brought up a 420 (17-  inch) howitzer, with a battery or so  of .220 (fMnch) howitzers, to batter  it to pieces. They succeeded, lt took  between 50 and 60 .420 shells and  nobody troubled to- count the number of .220 shells.  But from the calculations that  were made there can be little doubt  that that particular piece of destruction cost the Germans over $400,000!  It is the general opinion among the  farmers who have little or no trouble  in securing satisfactory help that the  solution of the farm help problem is  largely in the farmer's own hands, in  wages, treatment and hours.���������F.C.N.*  in  Conservation.  sawmills, 12; foundries, 2; Avniie power houses, blacksmith shops and  others had a clean record.

There is no use in  abusing them. They have got to be  educated and stimulated and encouraged. We must bear in mind that the  young, unmarried man does not belong to a different race from his elder  brother in the thirties or forties or  fifties. He is simply in an earlier stage  of development. It is to a certain extent an irresponsible stage. The youth  takes the world as he finds ij. Many  a man of mature age bus said, "I wish  1 had known, Avben 1 was twelve years  of age, or eighteen years of age, what  the family troubles were. 1 know now,  but it's Loo late."  Against that kind of useless remorse  we should like to protect young men  in their teens ami in their twenties.  In a few years, when they marry and  have families, they will recognize and  realize the situation. Rut then it may  be too late. Either the Germans will  dominate us or the work! will be saved  from the Germans by the older men  without the aid of ihe younger men  of Canada. We sincerely hope thai the  younger Canadians will not be placed  "in that position.   ���������  That married mon are more willing  to enlist than young, single men mny  seem strange at first. But tlio truth is  that the appetite for responsibility  grows by what it feeds on. Tho more  responsibility a man assumes, the  moro ho wants to assume. It Is the  family man who is Indignant because  of tbo outrages on the women of Belgium, 4ind the murder of English women and bwbios by Zeppelin bombs.  In appealing to the young, it Is  necessary lo evoke the spirit of adventure, us well as io arouse the sense of  responsibility. Ours Is the great adventure of the twentieth century, nnd  perhaps of nil the centuries. The  world has never before been confronted by such a criminal organization as  thai.'of Lho KaSiicr and hlu oMquc, by  nny thing so unscrupulous, To fight  such a gang Is not, only a duty, bnt n  glorious opportunity which tho youth  of our huul ought to be glad W> scl/.e.

Correspondent    Writes of  j*s  Strength and Efficiency  Once when all was peaceful and-G-er-  many's future was not threatened on  land - or water, Field Marshal von  Jloltke stood on the roof of St.~Paul's  cathedral and cast his eye over the  world's mightiest city and exclaimed;  "What" a city to sack."  If Admiral von Tirpitz (writes J. C.  der Veer, the London correspond1-  of  the    Amsterdam    newspaper  Der Telegraf) had been our companion  as we, on boai'd a destroyer, steamed  through part of the British fleet, he  would certainly have cried out "What  a fleet to sink."   Well, his country has  now the opportunity to send the whole  British  fleet to  the  bottom.  According to Gerhard Seelinger one airship  could sink the whole business to the  sharks. This war will have disillusioned Herr Seelinger, for in practice Zeppelins appear   .only to be able to kill  women and children.   Von Tirpitz has^  never ventured an attack on tbe Brit-"  ish    fleet.    Sic transit    gloria mundi  Germania.   Under water the Germans  have attempted many times to reach.  the    British    fleet.    In the beginning  things looked rather bad. I have heard  with    my own  ears    British  officers  praise the bravery of German submarines,    but  are  they  able  to do  any  damage to the sea power of England?  The only torpedoed warships were old,  ami not capable of much speed.  Xo modern British warship has been  lost in the North Sea, which has been  the fate of certain Teuton submarines'  which   lie   burled in the Band at the  bottom  of the  sea.    The Inestimable  importance of the fleet in tho world  Avar is often underestimated and unappreciated, not only abroad but very  often In ils own country. People talk  constantly    about    the    British army,  but   .seldom    ever   of Britain's proud  fleet.
