"I regret to say that the outlook appears darker during recent montns  than at any time smce tne war began," said tsaron Aaeisward. '*I do  not beneve tnere is the slightest  chance of peace at the present tune  or in the near future.  "In England," he continued, "I  found among officials ana tne people  at large that they look upon the war  as j'ust beginning. They recognize  now that tliey were not ready for war  at the outset and lacned men anu  munitions, wtit now it has taKen firm  hold of tne wnole people mat the war  is a tremendously serious question,  and they feel tney are oniy now beginning "an ertort adequate to thj  nuge task before them. So that it is  useless to taik peace to them when  they are firmly convinced they are  just beginning the war.  "In l'*rance mere is indignation rt  the mere mention of peace, and the  whoie country is united in the policy  of carrying on the war with tne utmost energy.  "But in uerma.iy there is undoubtedly a very strong public sentiment  tor'ending the warr 1 have made four  trips through Germany since the war  began, and have observed the gradual  growth of feeling that the war should  end. This was most marked during  my last visit, and extended to ah  classes, men and women exclaiming:  'My God! Who would have thougnt  this terrible war wouid last so long?*  The statement of the German chancellor that any effort by Germany's  enemies    appears to    be designed  _ _ to  calm the public feeling in Germany  in showing that the government is  ready for peace, but cannot realize it  through  the  opposition of the allies.  "There is, too, a significant and  rather ominous attitude among the  German people of being ready to criticize men in high places���������even the  highest. Such a thing would not have  been thought of a short time ago, but  now it rs general.  "For instance, men who direct  large forces of employees were recently discussing the serious conditions* arising from the war. 'The responsible ones will be punished,' said  one.   'But the  will he,  too,   be   punished?'  mean him, too, he is the one,'  reply.  "And this is very typical of the  way the ordinary people are talking,  and it is a condition which might have  the gravest consequences. And yet,"  Baron Adelsward added, "it is a mistake to think that Germany is exhausted and will be forced to peace  through sheer exhaustion. She has  many resources still, and can fight for  a long time,"  Baron Adelsward visited Aldershot,  the great military rendezvous of England, also the grand fleet in one of the  ports of Scotland, and later conferred  with Premier Asquith and other British leader's.  "The British fleet in reality has  threo points of concentration," saia  he, "and wc visited the main point,  where most of the great battleships  are gathered.    It is a mopt impressive  sight, not only of strength, but of alert  reatimess."  Turning to the question of permanent world peace, .Baron Adelsward  said:  "it should be understood we have no  concern in seeking to end the present  war. That, of course, is highly desir-  auie, but it has notning to do with our  movement, and the beingerent government are firmly determined to deal  with the question of peace in their  own way. But our aim of an enduring  peace is the same whether the war  lasts one year or ten years���������we must  prepare tne way, study the practical  metnods, and moid puDlic opinion to-  getner, preventing another world disaster such as the present.  "We have met some discouragement and opposition frpm some ot the  allied governments, on the theory  that we were urging a premature  peace. But that is not the case, and  in talks I have had with some of the  leading officials I have shown them  that our movement is in truth seeding  tne same end that the allied forces  tignting in the trenches are seeking���������  an honorable peace which will be lasting and will be a guarantee of future  security to them and to the Whole  world."  "But what practical step can be  taken to insure world peace?" Baron  Adeisward was asited.  "The most practical means, it seems  to me," said he3 "is to make a reality  of the Permanent Court of Arbitration  of The Hague, giving it an actual ex-  sistence, and a strong controlling  force in the regulation of international affairs. It is a great deal that all  civilized governments have already  agreed to it in principle. But it remains to give tnis principle the de-  fmiteness of a practical, working, judicial tribunal���������a real world court, actually in session, with international  jurists representing the various countries actually in attendance, considering and determining international  litigation with the same systematic  regularity and finality that stare  courts consider their cases, and with  branches taking an active part in conciliating and mediating national disputes, sQ that nations will come to  look to this .international body as the  one competent and prepared to act  with authority and finality.  "The reduction   of   armament   and  other   peace   measures     will    follow  naturally, once the great essential���������a  world court at The Hague���������is realized.

It appears to have been proposed largely  as an appeal for German support, but  it is obviously out of place."  Referring to the attitude of Sweden  in the present war, Baron Adelsward  said:  "The sentiment of the Swedish people is one cif absolute neutrality.  Naturally there are groups, and this-  has created tho impression that  Sweden is favorable to the Central  rowers and opposed to the Allies. But  that is not the case, taking Sweden  as a whole and without regard to  groups or factions. So that when Mr.  Asquith asked ir i as to the attitude  ot i. .vedon���������not as to individuals or  groups, but Sweden as a whole���������I was  able to answer him that Sweden was  absolutely neutral, and that the impression of her lt,voring the Central  Powers was unjustiiied by tho facts."  Men Marched Shoulder High Through  Snow,   Firing   Rifles   as   They  Went  Difficulties experienced by the  Russians in the Caucasus are described in an officer's narrative received  at Petrograd:  "For   weeks,"     said   the   narrator,  tain, 11,000 feet high, east of Erzer-  nm, was exposed to blizzards, which  buried shelters fifteen feet under  drifts, and blew huts to pieces. Our  position was most critical when at  length we were ordered to march.  A hurricane of furious, proportions  was raging when we began to descend  ths snow clad precipices. The men  marched in single file and forced their  way shoulder high through the snow,  firing their rifles to guide those behind them. Uniforms became sheets  of ice, and masks of ice covered our  faces. Guns were lowered on ropes,  but not a man was lost. We had our  reward in the panic which onr unexpected appearance produced among  the Turks."  wwsrsiw^w  ENEMY TRYING TO CONCEAL REAL WEAKNESS  T?  ^derick Palmer Predicts The  Fall ai  Germany in  The Not  Distant Future, and Reasons That All Indications Point  To Gradual Collapse of The Enemy  which  o-V  (Frederick Palmer in Colliers)       , from  her   relatives   at  home,  The Prussian system has not yet un- suggested any    thought    Of  dergone the final test. *et withl every batch of German pns  Is Germany winning with probably oners captured scores of such letters  yielding  WAR LOSS NOW NEAR  THE 15,000,000 MARK  Total   Killed   in   World's   Struggle   is  2,990,000;  Wounded, 9,830,00  The gross casualties of the war to  Jan. 1, 1916, reached the enormous total of 14,960,000.

While it sometimes seems that we  in America know more about Germany  than about any of the warring countries, we really know less. The object of every nation in this war has  been to let the neutral countries know  only what they wanted them to know.  In this, too, Germany has excelled.  Japan learned, her tactics from Germany, and Japanese tactics were the  same in the Russo-Japanese war.

Russia's Present Great Port of Entry  and Exit  "There has probably never been a  more noteworthy expansion iu the  trade of any particular port in such a  short time than has occurred at Archangel during the last year (says the  American Commercial Attache at  Petrograd in a report to his government).  "From a comparatively unimportant port about a year ago, dependent,  chiefly upon its sawmills and fishing  fleet for prosperity, it was suddenly  become one of the most important  ports in the world, rivalling even New  York in the number and tonnage of  ships arriving and .departing between  about May 1, and the close of ice free  navigation. *���������  "At tho time of my visit in August  about 120 large steamers were in port,  and about 300 had arrived sinco May.  An immense number of boats and  barges are also engaged In river and  canal navigation, many of them  carrying as much as 2,000 tons each;  these have been diverted largely from  the lowor Volga river traffic.  "Larger preparations than ever aro  being planned to meet the traffic for  next spring, and it is hoped that tho  facilities may then ho sufficient to  take care, with reasonable promptness, of the enormous business that  has developed.  "If Archangel were free from ico  during tho winter It would be ono of  tho finest ports in the world, since it  has sixty to seventy miles of rivor  frontage nvailahlo for Bhips drawing  up to 2U feet. Moreover, through  the magnificent system of Inlaid wut-  orwnys witii which tlio Dwina River  hi connected, it is possible to whip  freight from Archangel hy water to  nearly all tho principal (owns of Rus*  sin.

For he must havo a knockout in order  to win. At least one of his opponets  must be counted out.  Russia, which he hoped would be  the first of all the countries in Europe j  to submit, has the least reason. For |  the Slav to yield to the German w.ow  would mean German domination of  Europe and the eclipse of Slavdom.  This the farseeing Russian leaders  realize. So do the mass of the Russians. They are fighting for racial  life. In order to gain a separate peace  with Russia, Germany avould !lt least  have to evacuate Russia and Poland  as well. Though she has made Russia suffer more than sho has suffered  this does not mean that she is winning.  To win, Germany must beat the immense new British army. She must  beat the 1917 class of recruits which  in November, France has not yet called to the colors. She must win in  some kind of a decisive victory at  arms���������or lose; must succeed in wearing down tho allies' resources and  mon by attrition instead of tht> allies  wearing down hers.  Germany insists that, sho is winning*.  Sho tells her peoplo that she is. But  have you ever looked through the  German papers for copies of letters by  French or British soldiors, or of letters  are found in their possession. The  German soldiers are showing the  strain. Their efficiency is decreasing;  that of England sitid France increasing. Ahd, make no mistake, those  snake lines on the map, indicating  German soldiers on the soil of the allies, hare been burned into the brain  of every Englishman and Frenchman.  Suppose that all next spring and  summer Germany throws herself  against those lines    of steel in vain.

For if sho  extends her lines in Serbia and Bulgaria she needs correspondingly more  men to keep them intact. Suppose  that, instead of being able to take the  offensive, she uses her magnificent  railroad system for rushing bodies of  troops here and there m order to halt  the offensive o������ the allies���������what will  be the effect then upon German sentiment? What would have been the  effect on Japanese sentiment if the  Russians had held out for another  year and let the Japanese stew in  front of their army?  When Liord Kitchener told the ministers of the British cabinet that the  war would be long they were sceptical.  But now they know that he knew  iyhat he was talking about. He counted upon winning the last battle. That  is the battle that England has always  had to win, anu usually has won,  though we reversed the tables in the  American revolution.  She has always started in confidently, only to be beaten at first because  she was not ready. But you may be  *^*-; . sure the amazing brain trust which  not j governs Germany, which knows how  to inflame its own people to its purpose, which unites great military leading with very skillful statecraft, is  never going to give the world a sign  that she is losing.  The one chance that Germany has  of winning is the chance that gave  Japan victory. Though beaten, she  may keep her secrets so close, conceal  her wounds so well, that she will give  the appearance of victory and deceive her enemies into compromise.  But if the allies keep on for another  eighteen months, and if they hold together, there is no doubt that Germany  will he beaten. And if their money  lasts! Watch and see if it doesn't.  The allied' troops may never get to  Berlin; they may never cross the  | Rhine none,of them may again enter  j East Prussia. But it will bo Germany  that will have to sue for terms because  she is in a state of siege.  Even rebellion in India, of which  Germany so fondly dreams, could not  change the event. Tho British hold the  sea. They have the superiority in  dreadnoughts, and battle cruisers  whose guns can smash anything above  water. Tho methods they used in  holding down the submarine campaign in the North Sea ought also to  serve in the Mediterranean.  Germany is in the position of a man  who strikes l'or want of air, for want  of room. Ho lungea this way and tliat  with tho craving for    breath for his  lungs and  space  for his  limbs.    Ho  pushes the wall hack   a little, but it  is still there, dashing his own blood  buck in his face.   He breaks through  ono door, hut there is another beyond.  The montal strain of such a battle is  as severe as the physical. Next summer, if Russia comes back strong, and  Turkey and Bulgaria aro tamed, the  walls   will begin to fall in on tho Germans.

High School I*  Public School Inspector Dove  has just- been here on his usual  spring visit to the local seat of  learning, and once more has sent  forth a clarion call���������the second  from him as well tis one from Inspector Sullivan���������to the trustees  to be up and doing in the good  work of inaugurating a really high  school at Creston.  His message is timely. In these  troublous times long and carefn]  consideration precedes action of  an j' sort, except, in some of the  things pertaining to the war, and  should the present school attendance be maintained (which ia moro  11 wm likely) thin full-fledged high  school will have become a real  necessity at least ns soon as Croston  decides to tackle the proposition.

From the attitude papers more  or less closely in touch with the  government are taking the compensation feature of the new act is  getting considerable attention, and  justly so. While the ultra prohibitionist is strongly averse to any  consideration of this kind being  shown few there be who will freely  and frankly deny the justice of  reasonable compensation.  For years the province has been  exacting a fairly stiff license fee  from the hotelmen for the privilege  of operating the bar, and in addition  has imposed regulations as to the  size, accommodation and fun lishings  of the hotel buildings that have  made most of them anything but  the big money makers they were  supposed to be; during the last  three years at any rate.  By accepting these license fees  and utilizing them for the province's  benefit in various directions B.C.  has become, as it were, a silent  partner in the business. If the  partnership is to be dissolvad it is  but fair that any loss sustained  should bo equitably divided amongst  all members of the firm.  Expound and expand, as many  will, on tho evils tho unscrupulous  hotclman has wrought, tho bad  boniface was only bad by your  loave, and tho province never  repudiated its responsibility in any  such canes.

And \  I would like in  the first place  to  say j  that I have no animus against Social-!  ism or Socialists.    1   havo^o axe to  grind, except my Maker's;    ho object, ,  except to attempt  to place  this discussion on its true basis.  This is a well-known axiom applied  to practice at the bar, viz., "When j  you have no case abuse your opponent."  There is also a method known to  politicians as "drawing a red herring  across the trail." I leave it to your  readers to form their own opinions as  to whether Mr. Litigate has adopted  either ov both of these methods.  The resolution reads, "That Socialism unaided by religion cannot cure  present day evils." In my opinion  the wording was unfortunate, as it  allowed Mr. Lidgate an opportunity  of going oft! on a side issue. It would  have been better to have said, "The  spirit of religion" or "The religious  spirit." However, we have to take it  as it stands, but anyhow, nothing is  said about religions or churches.  Churches ai*e crystalizations.    They  represent some phase of truth, which  has become overlaid with   much  that  is merely   formally   irrevelant.    The  Roman    Catholic    Church   is,   or    it  claims to be, the direct successor of  the Apostles.   The Greek Church split  off on a merely doctrinal point as to  the "Piocession of the  Holy Ghost."  Thp   Protestant Church parted from  the R.C. Church on points of doctrine  and   practice.   The   great   Methodist  was not in the beginning a secession  from the Anglican community but an  endeavor  to bring back into   it the  simple teaching    of  the   founder of  Christianity.    The huiumeaable Free  Church split off on minor points of  doctrine, or method of church organization and goyernment.  They all stand for some phase of  truth but, for the most part, have become more occupied with maintaining  their own bit of doctrine than with  carrying on the work of their master,  but they altogether make up and contain within themselves the Universal  Church, which is the company of the  faithful rervant-sof God "militant here  in earth," together with those who  have departed this life in faith, fear  and love.  Mr. Lidgate has been at some pains  to give ns a definition of religion, which  lie has evidently taken from one or  more dictionaries. Let us get back to  first principles.  Jesus Christ, for whose teaching  Mr. Lidgate seems to have some respect, when tempted to go after the  material glories of this world, as who  amongst us has not been so tempted>  and fallen all too readily into the trap,  put the temptation from Him with  the words, "It is written thou shalt  worship the Lord thy God and Hiin  only shalt thou sei-ve." And when it  was suggested that Ho should use the  divine power of which He felt himself  to bo possessed to command that  these stones should bo mode bread,  He replied that "Man shall not live by  bread alone, but by every word that  proceedeth out of the mouth of God."  And throughout His lifo he was in  conflict with the church of His day.  He never denied the principles upon  which that church was founded; that  in, the direct dependence of man upon  God, and the necessity of man's obedience to God's law. not only for his  spiritual but for his material life. The  whole history of tho Jewish nation is  an epitome of the relations between  God and man, and tho overruling influence of the spiritual over the  material, of the unseen forces of life  over the outward and visible ones.  Further, our Lord insisted continually on the ncccHHU-y of spiritual regeneration, of the necessity of working from the unseen forces within a  man (or nation) to tho outward welfare of the man���������not. from the outside  and material side only.  And this brings me to the point of  the resolution, vl*/., that the evils of  the present, day cannot bo cured without the aid of religion.

General Merchant   -   -   Creston  To suppose any such thing would be  on the same footing as to expect to  cure some deep-seated internal disease  by clapping on a plaster and rubbing  in a liniment.  As I once heard a clergymon of the  Church of England say with reference  so baptism���������apart from spiritual regeneration and as a mere outward  form���������"You might as well spit on a  man." That Socialism can bring a-  bont the spiritual regeneration of  mankind is a negation of semis. It  professedly aims only at the ��������� material,  which is the least part of o man's life  and which does not distinguish him in  any way from an animal. And it professes to think it will bring about the  milleuium, when the lion shall liedown  with the lamb, and our sword, whether  actual weapons of war or commercial  or political, shall he turned into  ploughshares.  That the present methods of production and distribution are wasteful  and costly, and that Socialism may  do something temporarily to relieve  these conditions, is quite possible, and  to that extent it litis my sympathy,  but that it will over proyo to bo a  euro for the evils of tho present* day is  unthinkable. It can at best, apart  from tho aid of religion, prove to be  an alleviation of the symptoms,  I say nothing about the many forms  of Socialism which are offered for our  selection (like the advertisements of  quack meilicincK in thu paper) except  that- they all agree in this, that none  ot them offer us any uoiisLriicthnial  policy.

President Cook was at the helm and  there was a surprisingly good turnout  for an afternoon session. Mr. Cook  wasted no eloquence in opening announcements, about three dozen words  only being required to get the first  speaker before the gathering.  Mr.  Wiancko opened with a complimentary reference to the turnout a  year ago, which was about the  best  he   had   at  any  of   the   gatherings  he addressed last season.    A similarly  good showing on this occasion  was a  good omen���������Creston Valley ranchers  took their occupation  seriously.    He.  referred to the unsuccessful attempt  to start a creamery here and advised  co-operation with Cranbrook or Nelson  if butter factories are operated there.  At a price of 30 cents a pound   f.o.b,  Creston for butter fat shipping cream  to outside points would be  profitable;  more so than making dairy butter xmx-  less one were a first-class buttermaker  with a good string of cash customers*  In winter, of course, 35 cents a pound  would   be    necessary    for   profitable  dairying.    A reliable barometer as to  butter fat prices was the   wholesale  price of butter.  Dairying, Mr. Wiancko asserted,  was the one industry there was little  or no chance of over-doing in B.C.  Right now the province is importing  the products of 45 or 50 thousand dairy  cows. The importance of ample and  intelligent feeding was quite thoroughly gone into. A cost of from $50 to  $60 a year for a dairy cow's feed looked high but when set opposite this was  the resultant 6,000 or 6,500 pounds of  milk .and 200 or 250 pounds of butter  fat at 80 cents a pound, omitting the  skim milk and fertilizer, good feeding  undoubtedly pays.  Mr. Wiancko cited a case of a Hol-  stein which last year produced 24,000  pounds of milk with almost 1,000  pounds of butter fat' from a daily  ration of 100 pounds of of mangels and  24 pounds of grain���������oats, barley and  linseed meal. At least 35 pounds of  succulent feed���������roots of the sort that  don't affect milk���������should be fed daily.  The relative value of hay feeds was  stated to be, timothy 3 points, clover  8, and alfalfa 11.  S. H. Hopkins, the diyersilied farming authority, followed Mr. Wiancko.  He opened with the observation that  live stock was a safe pioposition. Last  year 10 million dollars worth of live  stock products were brought into B.C.  which insurr d a good home market for  a considerable expansion in stock raising. Live stock ensured an all-the-  year-ronnd supply of finance and safeguarded soil fertility. Uuder a right  soiling system and a rotation of crops  a cow per acre was readily attained.  Ho deprecated the practice of breeding  heifers at two years of ago. Tho  practice permanently retarded tho  animal's normal growth. Ho urged  strict attention to tho f coding of dairy  cows while in calf, 00 por cont of tho  to-he-born animal's growth coming in  the last three monthn.  Tie favored hog raining. Even with  hay at $15, and bran at $1.10, young  pigs which sold at $5 cost little more  than $2 to raise. Young pigs should  he feu uy themselves for somo weeks  before woaning to ho sure of natural  development after liiau period. Pastured on alfalfa 80 hogs could fare nicely to tho acre.

The  size of a poultry house should be to  allow from 4 to 5 square feet per bird,  and the cost should not exceed  $1 per  bird, with a miximum price of $50; A  house from 14 to 16 feet deep is advised.  The meeting was closed by H. O.  English, whose topic was "Soils and  Crops."   Owing to a lack of first hand  information  of  the   Valley   soil the  speakers remarks were confined largely to the crop feature.

There was something simple anu  primitive, something of dignity beyond the usual conventions, in his direct address.  Mary's ackuowieagmeu! was as  plain  as   his  own  question.  "I am the woman.

Inspector Burke ii]\ed the halting-  sentence.  *'l told you she had been an ex-convict."  "Yes." Gilder said, after lie had regained his self control. He stared at  her pleadingly. "Tell me, is this  true?"  Here, then, was the moment for  i which she had longed through weary*  days, through weary years. Here was ]  the man whom she hated, suppliant 1  before her to know the truth. Her  heart quickened. Truly, vengeance is  sweet to one who has suffered unjustly.  with something of horror in his voice.  "It, is,"' Mary said quietly.  I     For a little/there was silence in the  i room.    At last. Gilder spoke with the  sureness of a man of wealth, confident that money will salve any wound.  "How much?" he asked, baldly.  Mary  smiled   an  inscrutable  smile.  "Oh, I don't need money," she said,  carelessly. "Inspector Burke will tell  you how easy it is for me to get it."  "Do you want my son to learn what  you are?" he said.  "Why not? I'm ready to tell him  myself."  Then Gilder showed liis true heart  in which love for his boy was before  all else.  "But I don't want him to know," lie  a  lie!"  lie  seized   her  hand  passionately.  "It is the truth." Mary said ilrmly.  "I have served three yours in prison."  There was a silence of a minute  that was like years.  Dick turned his tortured faco to his  bride of a day. Then he spoke again  moro  beseechingly.  "Say   there's  a  mistake."  Mary  spoke  with  a  simplicity  admitted no denial.  "It's all quite true."  The     man     who  had  so  loved  trusted her. stood trembling for a  ment, tottered and sank into a chair.  Tbe father looked at Mary with a  reproach that, was pathetic.  ~  v.-.  that  her,  mo-  oee, he said, and liis heavy voice  was for once thin with passion, "see  what you've done to my boy!"  "What   is   that,  compared   to   what  you have done to me?"  "What have I dono to you?" he questioned ,   uncompreh end ing.  "Do you remember what 1 said to  you the day you had me sent away?"  "I don't remember yon at all."  * Perhaps you remember Mary Turner, who was arrested four years ago  for robbing your store, and perhaps  you remember that she asked to speak  to vou before they took her to prison?"  The  heavy   jowled     man     gave   a  start."  "Oh, you begin to remember! Yes!  There was a girl who swore she was  innocent���������yes,    swore    that  she  was  innocent.    And she would have got off  ���������only   you asked the judge to make  an example of her."  "You are that girl?"  'T am that girl."  There was a little interval of silence. Then Mary spoke again remorselessly.  "'You took away* my good name;  you smashed my life; you put me behind the bars. You owe for all that.  Well, I've begun to collect."  "And that is why you married my  boy?"  "It is. Mary gave the answer cold-  lv, convincingly.

Germans Use Jerusalem as war Base  One of the missionaries who has recently returned to Rome states that  an English. colleague, who was with  him in Syria and who has probably  now returned to England, saw very  important preparations at. Jerusalem  'and Jaffa, i'or an expedition against  Egypt under the direction of German officers.  A double track railway line has  been constructed from Damascus to  Jerusalem .and Ghaza and some distance beyond the ancient frontier line  of Turkey and Egypt to the Isthmus  of Suez. Jerusalem is transformed  into an armed camp, defended by  trenches and containing 100,000 men.  All the convents have already been  converted into hospitals, with Turkish  and German starts, and the inhabitants are under strict supervision.  Moral   Degradation     Which     Results  From the Drug and Liquor Habit  Tliat alcohol is a habit forming drug  is denied by no one but its devotees.  Its denial would be useless ��������� because  every one knows men who have become the victims of the alcohol habit  that cannot break away from it. Nothing is more pathetic than to see  some of these men trying to break off  tli<������ iiabit- si-i"'ori!ior untold *cr+ttrcs  and failing time after time until, they  give up in despair and plunge in deeper than ever, in hopes of ending their  misery.  Morphine is also a habit forming  drug, but it is very little used compared with the various alcoholic liquors, because it is not pleasant to  the taste and because the habit of  treating to a dose of morphine has not  become popular. Its action is very  similar to that of whiskey or brandy.  In moderate doses it dulls the sensibility to pain and in large doses causes  a stupor resembling profound sleep.  Like alcohol, once the habit is fully  formed, it is almost impossible to  break off. Men who make a specialty  of treating the drug and alcohol habit,  tell me that it is easier to cure permanently a morphine field than an alcohol fiend. That is probably due  largely to the habit many have formed of urging their friends to drink.  The day is not long passed when  some would take it as an insult if you  refused to drink their dope. Both  these drugs have the effect of blighting the moral sensibility so that a  drinking nfan will do or say with perfect indifference what he would have  shrank from with horror before he  acquired the habit. Examples of this  we have had in plenty of late, when  men stoop to the most despicable  acts," utterly indifferent to the need  or fate of their country. Anyone who  has studied the question knows that  much of this moral degradation has  had its origin in drink on the part of  the person or his ancestors. Morphine  and alcohol are both poisonous drugs  and both have the tendency to affect  the  higher  moral  centres   first.  It is dreadful to contemplate the  i power which the traffic has acquired,  in England, France and Germany  tliey have defied the government and  the war office to do more than slightly curtail .their business. In Sweden,  the people voted a hundred to one in  favor of prohibition, but they did not  get it. In Ontario, people have voted  by large -majorities on three different  occasions in favor of prohibiting the  traffic. Not only that, but resolutions  and petitions almost without number,  have. "oursd in -^zo the government-  begging that the bars be closed. On  the other hand, no one but a quiet deputation of liquor dealers have asked  that the business be allowed to continue. But that deputation seems to  have more influence with governments  than the votes of the people, the resolutions of the most important bodies  and all the petitions that have been  presented, humbly pleading that the  great evil he stopped.���������H.

This is the very sort of  trouble that Nerviline is noted for  curing quickly. "I have proved Nerviline simply a wonder in reducing  a hard, painful swelling. It followed  an injury I received in my left leg  and caused me great pain and discomfort. The muscles were strained and  sore, and no other remedy gave the  ease and comfort 1 got from rubbing  on Nerviline. .There is a soothing,  pain-relieving power about Nerviline  that touched the root of my trouble.  Nerviline reduced the swelling, it destroyed the pain, it brought my limb  back to perfect condition." The experience of Mr. Bowen, whose'home is in  Middlesex, is .not unusual. Thousands  are proving every day that muscular  pains of every kind, chronic rheumatism, lumbago, neuralgia and sciatica  will yield, to Nerviline when nothing  else can possibly cure.

Admiral Kingsmill is director  of the Canadian service. In this con-  I nection, it may be added, said an of-  of   the   department,    that  tho  The Boys at The Front  Field Comforts Lessen the  Rigors of  a Winter Campaign  Two of the most characteristic features of this Avar, as distinguished  from other wars, have been trench  warfare  and  winter campaigns.  From time immemorial, winter has  been the great pacificist. Those  young enough to remember their  Caesar will recall the inevitableness  with which the Roman General, at the  first touch of frost, led his troops into snug winter quarters (Hibernia).  When   Wellington   held   the   lines  of Torres Vedras, winter imposed an  involuntary truce.    The  great Napo-  f eon met with  clisa.tser on. his winter  campaign in Russia.  Today, however, the winter campaign is perhaps, from the point of  view of the soldier, the greatest horror of modern war. Night and day, in  frost and sleet, our soldiers in r ranee,  have to mount guard. Winter, is to  them an even more implacable foe  than the German.  Moreover, few civilians understand  what a trench is. We talk glibly about  the trenches, but wo do not realize  -that a trench is a ditch full of mud  and slime���������-the most unfit of all tdsces  for human habitation.  The trench is bad enough in summer, but in winter it surpasses anything that Dante conceived in his inferno. The only way to -defeat this  infernal combination of winter and  trench is to .supply the soldier with  an abundance of "Field Comforts;"  socks, mittens, mufflers, wristlets and  belts to keep his body warm; and tobacco, mouth organs, gramophones,  books, pipes and hosts of other things  to keep up his spirits.  Every time we hear tho winter wind  whistle in the lanes, we should think  of our troops on active service and  make a contribution to their walfare.  Strongly Fortified Island That Guards  Capita) of Russia  Kronstadt, the island that guards  Petrograd, is the most strongly fortified place in the northern empire.  The fortifications on the island were  begun by Peter the Great in 1/703, after the dispossession of the Swedes.  Kronstadt is the port and outpost defence of the uussian capital, the seat  of the Russian admiralty, and the  first naval station of the Czar.  The older "three decker" forts of  Kronstadt, five in number, repulsed  the Anglo-French fleet during the Crimean War. These redoubts today, although mounting modern ordnance,  are largely obsolete, but powerful  forts and sunken batteries have been  installed to keep peace with the development of the naval strengths of r  neighboring states. The defensive  works of the island and adjacent  ���������shores have been carried out on an  extensive plan, much of it being done  according to the specifications of Tod-  leben; modified and brought up to  date by succeeding engineers.  The island' on which Kronstadt  stands, lying nearly iu mid-channel at  the head of the Gulf of Finland, is the  front door of Russia.   It is so situated  **#3        \f\J       U1W1VC        LUV        UVTAAA&/W.K. U1UVUV        *-������*.        bUI^  capital impossible before the passage  of its forts and batteries.

Incorrect light on the  target 'produces eye strain, poor  scores and grouchy shooters. The  result to try to obtain is, of course,  tha best possible imitation of daylight shooting conditions. I do not  like the usual method, which is to use  comparatively low power lights, placing them close to the targets ia such  a way that the target only reflects  light to the eye. The result optically  is to expand the iris of the eye, reducing the ability to see both sights  aiid targets clearly and rendering the i  eye susceptible to blur caused by the  giare.  Lately I have been shooting on targets which are illuminated by a two-  hundred watt nitrogen-filled bulb  placed about three feet in front of the  targets and four feet above them.  Looking down the range is like looking down a dark alley way into a court  yard flooded with sunlight.���������A. P.
