The gong recommended by the inspector will be installed forthwith, the  work to be looked after by George  Hendron. The gong is one of the 10-  inch variety and should fill the bill to  a nicety.

Among  the latter is the establishment of a  high school in the Vaiiey.  The teachers' monthly reports showed that for February the attendance  was back to normal, the total of  "scholars actually attending" reaching  113���������the primary room leading with  :U. The attendance figures show the  boys to be in a majority of one���������57 to  5i). Principal Masterton's room saves  the day for fche girls, the roll there  showing p boys and 16 girls.  a good chance to come out on the  right sida of the ledger, and not be  compelled to dig up to pay deficits.  Orohardists are busy pruning these  days. Ib will be at least two weeks  before much headway can be made on  the land.  Quite a number of the bridge gang  are making their home with mine host  Walter Hall. Miss Smith of Port  Hill is here assisting Mrs. Hall.  The school trustees have been invited to attend a Valley trustees conference at Creston on April 8th.  Miss Candy arrived from Brockville,  Ont., on an extended visit to her sister, Mrs. R. Thurston.  Mr. Lewis, the Amrrican customs  officer at Eastport, Idaho, who owns a  ranch adjoining Mr. Littlejohn, was  here most of the week doing the spring  pruning.  Pete, the Austrian, is again occupying his shack on the Duperry place,  and is preparing for spring work in  the gai'den. Pete had a bumper crop of  tomatoes last year, averaging a crate  per plant on almost 1,000 plants.  i���������,������  .a..

John Miller had the bad luck to lose  one of his dairy cows on Tuesday.  The animal was a rare stood one, as a  milk producer being one of the best  in the Valley. It was sick only a few  days.  :>:Th^Alice:;mihe"ro'ad' is hot in good  shape for hauling heavy loads. After  working a four-horse team and block  and tackle all day Saturday and part  of Monday the men managered to get  the aerial cable down from the concentrator to the Lowenberg ranch  where it rested until Wednesday before completing the trip to Creston,  Fayorable reports as to Cecil Matthews' condition continue to come from  Nelson hospital, nnd it is likely he will  be home this week-end.

Miss Dorothy^ Smith of Deer Lodge  is on the hotel dining room staff, assisting Mrs. "V\ . W. Hall. ..Several of  the bridge crew are making the Erickson Hotel their home at present.  Mr. Hendron and Joe Stinson have  been working the past couple of weeks  remodelling the store at the mill���������putting in new shelves and counters, and j  |Jit/lUUIIlg   U1C    HIDC1IU1.  G. M. Benney, road superintendent,  drove out on Monday to have a glimpsa  at the work going, on in connection  with the new bridge. Pile driving  was at a standstill for aeouple of days  this week owing to tbe break of a  hamnierlock.  The Canyon City Lumber Co. plans  to do considerable stumping this  spring. 40 boxes of powder have just  arrived for the purpose.  C. Blair has purchased the stallion,  Bob Roy, which C. Tompkins has  travelled through here the past couple  of seasons.  There are now 21 men and two  teams working on the bridge and  grade. 16 are Canyon residents and  the others from Erickson, Creston and  Wynndel.  /"IT* *m ���������-.

Only one day last  week he assuras us that a hen of his,  that had steadfastly refused to do her  duty all winter, was evidently seized  with a premonition of impending  danger and became so excited that  she went off and laid three eggs in one  day, but being in such a hurry to  finish the job she made a break and  left them all in one shell.

Alice Siding may soon learn  that it pays to let sleeping dogs lie,  in the meantime she had better go  scratching for some real stunts.  We are sorry to note that Alice  Siding has at last run out of good men,  for at the masquerade dance on Friday last ifcey had to call on Ed. Pen-  son of Wynndel to act as floor  manager.  Liberals (and other blue ruinists) are  taking great pains to impress upon us  that the province is broke and absolutely on the blink. Baby Carl  rises to remark that such a state of  affaire can never exist so long as we  have gunny sacks and hay wire.  A correspondent says we should be  fair to Mr. Ford who, aftrr all, makes  a "rattling" good car. Ask Bob R������ id;  he should known by this time.  Billy Truscott pulled out on Friday  for the Boundary country, where he  will spend the summon, if mill work  holds out.  Two cars of potatoes wero loaded  hero on Wednesday. One by Manager Staples of tho Fruit Growers  Union, which goes to Calgary, nnd tho  other by Roy Telford for M. McLeod  at Sandon.   Tho price is $20 a ton.

Erickson vanchors generally nre  much pleased U> learn that Roy  Staples has accepted the positiuu of  managing director of the Creston  r*ruit Growers Union for the corning  season. Ill him the Union linn undoubtedly secured a capable man for  tho position, his many years ojtpir-  ionco both in business and farming ensures that tho Union's affairs will bo  handled in a straightforward nnd  businesslike fashion. If vim, energy,  honesty arid hus-lle enn do it, then the  Union will experience the most pro-  lit nble seiiHon lp Its history.

The meeting on Wednesdap next is at  Mrs. Churchill's at 2 o'clock prompt.  The Social Club's stand-in with the  weather man expired a day too soon  for the good of their masquerade ball  on   Friday    night���������the    threatening  aspect of tho  heavens keeping down  the   attendance   considerably.    How-  over, the turnout was just right for  comfortable dancing, which was kept  up to a late hour to   splendid music  provided by Mrs. Webster and Butterfield  brothers.    The   costuming   was  excellent and the judges,  Mesdnmes  Matthews and Stewart  aud  Mr. T.  Butterfield had some trouble awards.  The  ladies prize went to Miss Ruth  Smith, Turkish Lady, who had a very  closo competitor for the honor in Miss  Jennie Nieholls, Indian Girl, Trennie  Long as a Mexican  Cowboy won tho  gents prize.    Messrs.   Fid   Penson and  Earl Peaso woro in charge of tho floor  and, of course, there  was both quantity and quality to the refreshments.  Among those in costume nt the  masquerade on Friday night, other  than tho prize winners, wo noted Mrs.  Webster, Snowflake; Mrs. Long, Bo-  lu'uii-ui Girl; Mrs. SulclIfiV, Squnu;  Mrs. Pcubo, Red Cross Nnr.'io; Minn  Jean Smith, Ghost; Miss B. Mawson,  Crci-ton Reviow; Miss B. Pense, Lady  of 1845; Triesa Churchill, Waitress;  Geo. Hood, J. Boydoll, Oh. Arrowsmith  Cowboys; Morgrn Pease, Cadet; 1 ton-  aid Stewart, Clown; and Andy Miller,  Mrs. Pankhurst. All were uniformly  Welt costumed, but, special mention in  due the suffnigeftclendor get up of  the latter who carried off the pai t of  the lady in qucMtion ho well that few  were aware of his identity before  1 he unmasked.  Capt. Ashley Cooper returned home  from Morrissey camp on Monday on a  short leave.  Paul Hagen had the misfortune to  lose his best milk cow on Sunday  night. It died from an overdose of  eating.  We are sorry to hear that Mrs. E.  Williams is very sick with heVnnior-  i*age of the lungs, but trust sho will  have a speedy recovery.  On April 15th the Social Club will  hold a basket social, dancing to commence at 8.30. All ladies are asked to  bring a basket containing sufficient  lunch for two. Visitors from Creston  and outside points specially invited.  The baskets will be sold by auction to  the highest bidders at 11.80 p.m. Tho  proceeds will go towards wiping out  the club's indebtedness on tho building and furnishing of tho clubhouse.  Jack Boydoll of Alico Siding was  seen snooping around our business  section on Tuesday packing a huge  telescope, and whon asked what lie  was doing so far from homo replied  ho had come down to see if there  really wns a puddle at Wynndel. Ho  wont back quite convinced .of tho  genuineness of ourassortion, and says  in futuro ho will root for Wynndel  overy time.  For those not conversant with the  Gorman language wo would point out  thnt tho German pronounciatlon of tho  word Vordntnis "Wc'io done."  Far be it from us to question tho  veracity of the Alice Siding correspondent, 1ml being u p'r-ion.-.l fi-U-in! of  A. W. Mason he assures us that at. the  most he only visits his henhouse twice  a week. Thus is easily explained the  strange phenomena quoted iu last-  week's columns.

Hans Haag of Kuskanook paid Sirdar a flying visit Tuesday.  Mesdames Loasby and Ross visited  Creston Wednesday between trains.  Mr. and Mrs. R. Ross return to  Cranbrook on Saturday after a stay  here of three weeks.  Mrs. James Cook, who has been visiting friends at Sirdar, returned to  Creston last Thursday.  W.D. Tuohey, who has been on the  sick list for the past month, resumes  work the first of the month.  Owing to mud slides in the vicihity  of McNeilie train service was somewhat disorganised last week end.  Vice Presidents Bury and Grant  Hall passed through on special train  last Tuesday, accompanied by local  officials.  Last Tuesday Mrs. Tory Pnsscuzze  left for Cranbrook where sho goes into  the St. Eugene Hospital for medical  treatment.  William McCabe and Sam Bysouth  attended the Conservative mooting in  Creston last Saturday, beingdelegatos  appointed by tho Sirdar Conservative  Association.  Sirdar has onci mnro boen visited  by a prominent lumber man of tho  Kootenay-Boundary country, nnd  speculation is rifo as to future development of the lumber industry in tnis  inimpdiatejneighborhood. It is understood that the attitude of tho C.P.R.  concerning this project may exert  much influence in making Sirdar the  centre of considerabor lumbering  activity in tho near future.

Crow Line Tied  Up for 36 Hours  For the first, time in four years  Creston was without rail communication with eastern points for a matter  of 48 hours���������from Saturday after-noon  until Monday 5 p.m.���������owing to a considerable chunk of a mud and rock  slide at a point 8 miles east of Creston  ���������in the neighborhood of Paulson's  mill.  The slide occurred early Sunday  morning and as soon as Cranbrook  could be adyised Supt. Hai-shaw and  RoadmasterTopham gathered up all  the available help iu that city and  intervening points as well as available  section crews and rushed them to the  scene of the blockade, which covered  an area of at least 800 feet in length  and was piled up from four to six  feet deep.

To aggreyate its removal, too,  the right of way at this point, is rather  narrow and this fact, along with the  rain that fell almost continually all  day Sunday made the clearing;'"of the  line almost doubly difficult.  .Not only,..was the work laborious  but a bit dangc-ous at times, one of  the fresh slides on Sunday afternoon  carried an Italian laborer almost into  the Goat River and the   injuries sus-  i.,.;.,^j  ;���������   a.1, ^ ���������i      ���������-  ?>....?.    ..    ,   -  wiiicu  xxx  tne iniAUp    iieu<r;r>nlt>rt,Llllj>     iliM  immediate removal to Cranbrook for  for medical treatment. At least one  other* Italian was also injured, though  not so seriously.  By working until dark on Sunday  j night and getting busy at daylight,  Monday morning the gang which  numbered about 75 men managed to  clear things up sufficiently to put in  new rails to replace those carried away  ''���������**'^^���������''flE-^l������^^^  to reach nere about an hour'-'late on  Monday. Tbe digging out is about  complete but another slide is in prospect as there Is still a dangerous looking overhanging mass that will jar  loose sooner or later.  Sunday's eastbound express made  the trip to the slide but seeing not  even a transfer of passengers was  possible backed into Creston, remaining until i p.m., when it was officially  cancelled and backed on down to Sirdar though most of the passengers remained in Creston for the night. The  westbound, of course, was held at.  Cranbrook.  Both the Creston section crews and  feme extra help were rushed to the  slide and were, on the job until Monday night.

But why do farmers want to soil or  rent their farms, give up the habits of  a lifetime and move into a cramped  house in  the town?    Doubtless  in  a  majority    of instances     the    answer  would be that the difficulty of obtaining help indoors and out, and the consequent hard work entailed upon the  farm owner, make the change desirable or imperative.    Then there are  the wife and daughters longing for a  little more liveliness and excitement;  but  at the  bottom of it all  is that  restlessness and all impelling  desire  for a change which attacks every man  when he has reached middle life.    If  one is able to withstand the disease  for a few years, he is likely to find  his familiar environment take on new  attractions. Just now in our neighborhood this insistent desire for a change  has  gripped a nuinuer oi my neighbors so hard that they are joining in  excursions to Florida, in the hope of  finding swamps, where, it is claimed,  summer   is   perpetual,   the   alligators  good company, the- neighbors rich, refined and cultured, and where an assured and ample income    is  derived  from   celery,   asparagus,   potatoes   or  some other single crop to which the  land is alleged ������to* be peculiarly well  adapted.    Some of our neighbors who  have returned are full of enthusiasm,  while others, and these are the more  observing and successful at home, see  nothing   particularly   inviting   in   the  Florida prospect.  What does a man who has lived and  worked on a farm for fifty years or  longer gain by moving to town and  engaging in the monotonous task of  kiling time? In the first place he  gains leisure, if that is desirable. He  has time, to get into the front line  whenever a fire  occurs  and the en  David   Beatty  Says  Britain   Must  Get Betterment Out of War  Vice-Admiral Sir David Beatty,  commander of the First British. Battle  Cruiser Squadron; -whose ships defeated the (Jernians in the North Sea, has  made a stirring appeal for a great religious revival in Britain as a necessary step to victory in the war. In a  letter read at the annual convention  of the Society for the Propagation of  Christian  Knowledge,  he  writes:  "Surely Almighty God does not intend this war to be just a hideous  fracas. There must be purpose in  it; improvement must come out of  it. "In what direction? France has  already shown us the way and haa  risen out of her ruined cities with a  revival of religion that is wonderful.  nliOle,  Reduction of Hours  and religion plays a great part. Bri  tain still remains to be taken out of  the stupor of self-satisfaction and  complacency into which her flourishing condition has steeped her. Until  she can be stired out of this condition, until a religious revival takes  place, just so long v.*ill the war continue.  "When she can look oa the future  with humbler eyes and a pra3*er on  her lips, then we can begin to count  the days towards the end.-Your society is helping to this end, and so is  helping to bring the Avar to a successful end."

Germany   Will   Not   Permanently   Acquire  Any New Territory as a  Result of the War  The  German   Emperor    will   make  himself the  laughing  stock    of    the  world if he appoints his second son,  Pr^nco  Eitel  Fred^*icli    Kins'  "f  Serbia.    The Throne of Serbia is not yet  vacant,   and   the   territory  of   Serbia  is  stm unconquerea,  in spite  or the  fact that its capital has been transferred to a foreign country, ihe same  remark . applies to Belgium, whose  capital was removed to France early  in the war, as was also that of Montenegro a few days ago. There is not a  sane observer of current events outside of Germany who does not believe  that each of these-three kingdoms will  be freed from the Teutonic invaders  at or before the conclusion of the war,  and that each ni them will- be territorially enlarged as the result of the  whole international catacylsm.  History abounds in precedents for  this view of the present situation.  Scotland was overrun in .the fourteenth centu.*y by the English army,  and iter crowned king was for several  years a fugitive among tho mountains  of his own kingdom, but. that kingdom  was during the interval only in a state  of suspense. Napoleon Bonaparte in  1808 made his own brother, Joseph,  King of Spain, but the captive Spanish monarch was restored after the  explosion of the French army in 1S14;  an interval of seven years. Napoleon  himself  took Vienna  twice  and  Ber-  1 *ir������    oti nr*   in    il** ���������>    ltif Avt'nl    liAfvi'-nAn    1 QAt-%  and 1809 but it did not occur to anyone  that these kingdoms had thereby been  subjugated. To attempt to inflict a  German king on either Serbia or Montenegro would at the present stage of  the war be regarded as presumptive  proof of the insanity of the Gorman  monarch.  Whatever delusions the Kaiser may  still cherish about beating the allies  Into submission, there is not a commander in his army or navy, not a  statesman In his chancellory, not a  dignitary among his ecclesiastics, not  a professor in his universities, not an  economist or a financier worthy of  either titles in his wholo realm that  regards such an outcome of the war as  a possibility. They know, If he does  not, that Germany can permanontly  acquire no territory aa tho result of  thin war, nnd that it is possible, If not  probable, uho will lose Rome. They  know that the allies can, hy adopting  u certain mode of warfare, causo her  to chooso between being choked to  death and being bled to death. It Is  Htill open to Germany to savo something from the wreck of tho empire,  hut not oven tliat will he possible for  any coiisldorubJo time. ��������� Toronto  Globe.  Beneficial   Effects   Evidenced   in   Eng  land   Through   Curtailment   of  Sale of Liquor  The following part  of an  -editorial  from the Ottawa  Citizen shows  that  the   reduction  in   the   hours     during  which  liquor  may  be  sold  in  Liverpool,    has   produced    remarkable results.    Imagine    what    it would have  been if it had been prohibited entirely. _  "The war has shown the necessity  for economy and the cutting of nonessentials. When such are in addition,  harmful to the individual and family  ���������the   foundation     of     society���������there  should be no hesitation in. curtailing  their sale or altogether prohibiting it,  Britain, where  the liquor intereJ ������,  are more strongly entrenched tjian in  Canada, has seen the beneficial results  of its restriction    regarding the salt-  liquor.    Liverpool,  where    tbe    anti-  treating law. has been strictly enforced, declares that the new regulations  have proved the virtual salvation of  the community, in safe guarding the  families of the poor, and others, from  actual poverty.   The city formerly had  the   reputation  of  being  one  of  the  worst in the kingdom; now it has become  one  of the    soberest,    and    a  drunken  person  on  the streets  is  a  rare sight.    With added sobriety iia.c  come a remarkable increase in industry, -and the authorities believe that  troubles with dock workers and other  classes will now be less frequent. The  hours  for  drinking  in  Liverpool  are  limited from noon each day to 2.30 p.m.  and  from  6.30  to  9.30  p.m.    Outside  .these  hours it is impossible  to  buy  liquor in Liverpool.  The   Liverpool     regulations     have  proved more successful than those of.  ! London, simply because they have ap-  j plied to rich and poor alike. In Lon-  J don they a.re aimed at the poor, and  not until lliis week d>u the authorities  close  down on the  fashionable cafes  where dancing and drinking continued  into the early hours of the morning.  But the recent action of the Londor  authorities may soon cause a condition  of  affairs   in   the   Capital ��������� similar  to  those in vogue now in Liverpool.  In Ontario the decision of the government will be hailed as an earnsst  of its intention to deal with the pro  blem in response to public demand.

Other questions are agricultural production, transportation,  marketing and rural   credits.  Working Young Horses  Duncan Campbell paid a visit to a  friend in Glasgow, who took him to  dine m a rstiier jooxiemian restaurant.  Duncan's natural caution led him to  look around often to see that his hat  and coat reniained still on the peg  where he had left them.  "You are a suspicious chap," said  his friend at last. ���������'Who do you tbu.uk  is going to walk in here and steal  our coats?"  "Canna say," replied Duncan, "but  I'll tak' guid care that naebuddy gets  awa' wi' mine. Yoors went ten mean-  its ago."  Great  Care   Must   foe  Taken   Not  to  Overwork the Growing Animal  Some young horses of good size and  strength can safely be worked at two  years of age, if they are worked moderately and handled - with care and  judgment.  The writer has broken and worked  iwo young horses at two years of age,  and in both cases they turned out to  be splendid mature antenals. Both  grew and developed right along till  *s&ey were five years of age, but they  were handled with utmost care and  fed liberally.  It is not reasonable to expect a two-  year-old or a three-year-old horse to  iio as much worl. as a mature animal.  The young horse must be given a  light load at first, and it must not be  pushed to its limit, during the first  working period of its young life. It  is best to work the young horse with  a strong and reliable older one, giving the younger one advantage over  the old. A stay chain should be used  on the older uorse so that he can  start the load and even pull it by  himself in hard places. The load for  the team should never be excessively  heavy.  Another importan1- point in working  the young horse is to never work him  full days at first, and, never crowd  him to the point of fatigue, especially  on warm days. Do not try to woru  the life and vim out of the young  animal at first simply because he has  life and vim. Such is apt to ruin his  spirit and result in a slow or balky  animal. "You wish to preserve his  vim and spirit for later use.  And, by all means, feed the young  working animal liberally of a variety  to furnish energy for work and materials for the building of rich blood,  muscle, nnd bon\ Feed some oats,  corn, wheat bran, and alfalfa or clover bay^ with n. little oil meal.

Methods Used to Determine Whether  Wounded Soldiers Are Alive cr  Dead  Three methods used in the rear of  the fighting lines by army surgeons to  determine in doubtful cases whether  a soldier wno has fallen is alive or  dead are described in La Clinica Med-  ica Italiana, and discussed in the current number of the Medical Record,  The first of these is to drop ether into  the conjunctival sac of one eye. If  this is followed by a reddening of the  conjunctiva, it affords proof that the  circulation is intact, and that life is  still present. The other eye is used  as a control. The second test has been  recently proposed by Icard. It consists  in the subcutaneous injection of fiuor-  escin, which, if the individual is still  living, is soon followed by a yellowish coloring of the skin and mucusa.  The conjunctiva and the mucous membrane of the mouth, and 'particularly  the frenuni of the tongue, show this  coloration most distinctly. The test  consists in the injection of eight to  ten cubic centimeters of a solution of  20 grams of fluorescin and 30 grams  of sodium carbonate in 100 grams of  distilled water. A negative result is  Obtained in c.ases of marked slowing*  or enfeeblement of the circulation,  as during the agonal condition. The  third test has recently been proposed  by Halluin. It consists in the direct  exploration of the heart by means of a  stilette. This is introduced throuogh  a small incision in one of the intercostal spaces. Any movement of the  heart is communicated to the stilette.

Along this line it may be of  interest to learn that in view of  past performances the carrying of  the resultant war debt is far -from  impossible. We are told that tho  last war with France left Britain  with a" debt around four and a.  half billions of dollars. Up to a  few weeks ago tho preach tembroglio  had cost upward of ten billions.

In Kaslo, for instance, between  the license fees and light and water  rates, the town's liquor trade pays  into the municipal treasury over  $3,000 per year���������nearer $3,500.

Edmonton, Crestoh'schampion  contraptionist, is busily' engaged  these days in the erection of a mysterious-looking structure adjacent to his  residence. Passersby have been kept  busy as to its purpose when finished  ���������if it ever does get finished. Some  think it is going to be an arteisan  well. Others imagine that preparations are 'being made for a Maypole  dance.

At the time  of writing it looks like a cross between  the Dingman oil well derrick and the  giant telescope at Mount Lick Observatory, so that a certain amount' of  latitude in the guessing competition is  pardonable. But to allay all anxiety  on the point we would say that we are  credibly informed that the mysterious  structure is intended to be a grist mill  driyen by wind power (if its inventor  doesn't change his mind before it is  completed) and it is confidently expected that ere long it may be busy  grinding corn, sawing wood, churning  butter, scalding hogs, plucking fowl,  and, in fact, saving labor in eyery  possible direction.

Editor Review:  Sir,���������"When women go in for public  speaking, and especially when their  speeches are communicated to the  public press, I do wish they would  try, at any rate, to be approximately  accurate in their statements,  In your last issue we read with  amazement, not unmixed with awe,  at such colossal lack of knowledge at  this stage of the war, that "Britain  spends the enormous sum of 650 million dollars per annum in drink" and  that if they did away with drink the  British people might pay for the war,  still ha^e. everything, they, have now,  ana have 100 million over for social  betterments. '  Fancy, 650 millions to pay for the  war. According to the Times, the  paper acknowledged by all the world  as an authority, the war is costing  Great Britain over* one million dollars  per hour, so that Mrs. St. Jean's enormous 650 millions would last just about  27 days.  Her statement is so very absurd  that it Were not worth correcting, except for the fact that there are many  misinformed people in Creston on the  question of Great Britain that they  might believe Mrs. St. Jean's statement because hIir wild it. und they.saw  it in the paper.

Thoy are by no  moans tho only gratuitous assertions  In this address, made wonderful hy  mipt'ovon statements, but as thoy form  tho basis of his arguments wo aro calling upon Mr. Tjidg'ito to prove thorn  hoforo drawing conclusions, or taking  a night, draft on our credulity.  1. "However, wi, wish you to oh-  Horvo that modern religion as proach-  to-day and praottisod by its founder  20 conturlos ago are as far apart in  principles and truth as the polea aro  iiHiindor." A moat uNtoniNhioir norw-  tion, indeed 1 Tho Catholic Church,  Mr. Editor, ia a vory old r.sliglon.

Until this assertion has been  proven satisfactoJily,Mr.EditOr,no one  will be blamed for disregarding Mr.  Lidgate's conclusions in regard to  religion. The time has long since passed when loose historical assertions  carry any .weight. Men now look for  proof.  2. "But His ideas haying the germ  of truth, in them spread abroad among  the downtrodden and slaves of His  time, made its way against powerful  persecution, and for some two or three  centuries it really was a religion���������one  of love and brotherhood; that which  its originator intended it should be."  "But there comes a time when it  become respectable. It is made the  religion of the governing classes���������the  religion of emperors. It is made over  to suit Pagan and Christian, and in  consequence becomes debased, a matter of mere convention, a religion recast in Pagan moulds, etc."  Now, Mr. Editor, that religion, according to history, is the Catholic religion���������thcZ'i? was no other, Anu the  Catholic Church has vivid recollections of those first centuries of her  existence, ar.d fcr very good reasons.  She therefore accepts no wild statements of upstart historians that *'it is  made over to suifePagan and Christian  and in consequence becomes debased,"  without demanding day and date.  Very fortuna ely historians of the  present day are on this point of one  mind'with the Catholic Church. Historical facts must be substantiated or  they cease to be facts. Let us have  some proof of this assertion.  "But there comes a time when it became respectable." Nonsense 1 The  Catholic Church is and was respectable  on account of the unutterable reverence of her founder, Jesus Christ, and  for no other reason. Prove that it  ': became more respectable" in any  age than at the first Pentecost.  8. "Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen, when as a child we thought and  spake as a child but as we came to  mature yearsourreasoning intelligence  fails to grasp a religion based on these  abstretions, or to discern wherein it  touches, possesses, or discloses any  practicability or power as an, aid to  Socialism in curing present day social  evils, or to bi ing peace and justice to  human society'"  '''"'  What he cites, Mr. Editor, from  the present war is surely nothing to  the point. In the first place his logic  is wrong, i e begs the question; he assumes what he has to prove. Supposing the rulers of Europe are cutting one  another's throats, is it because of their  religious principles, or in spiteof them.  Before concluding he must prove  that is on account of their religion or  religious principles.  Secondly, it surely proves nothing  against religion to say that a certain  person does not see how it can aid  society. Before a conclusion is reached it must be pi-oyed that religion did  not and does not aid society. On this  point let us quote Rev. R. J. Campbell  (Anglican), late of Oity Temple, London. He notes one remarkable instance of how the Catholic Church  aided society���������it is only one of many.  "Why not ?" says Mr. Campbell. "The  like has been done beforo; not so  thoroughly perhaps, bnt to a large extent. We owe the mitigation of horrors of modern warfare to it. Tt wns  church councils in the tenth century  that forbade the spoliation and maltreatment of non-combatants. And  who has not heard of the truce of God  throughout the Middle Agoa, whereby  hostilities were limited to what was  practically about threo months in tho  yoar.  ���������'There wns no fighting from Wednesday evening to Monday morning  in any one week, and thoro wero  special soasons. such as Lent, when  there wac to be nono at all.

Hrothevston, a- well known resident of this place, is still singing the  praises of the great Canadian kidney  rentedv*. v f  "I was troubled with rheumatism in ;  my .left hand, whicli would shift, to mj- j  elbow and then to niy shoulder," Mr. j  Brotherston says. "It was very an  noying and painful at  heard" of Dodd's Kidney Pills h el pin  others so I quit the liniment I was  using und took six boxes of them. The  rheumatism disappeared. That was  over a year ago. hut it has not returned.  '*I know Dodd's Kidney Pills are  good for kidney trouble both in my  own ease and through others who have  used them."  Rheumatism is caused by uric acid  in the nlood. If you cure your kidneys  by using Dodd's Kidney Pills they will  drain -all the uric acid out of the blood  and there can be no rheumatism.  Canada's Vision  The Canadians! have come to realize  as never before the nature of a commonwealth and the great part they  play  in  it.  The superficial idealism which the  Canadian has hitherto lulled his conscience and senses with "has been dispelled liy a liner kind which holds  tliat progress is often a matter of  stern duty and sacrifice, and not a  phase of fatalism.  Canada has taken up the load. She  is sending her sons to suffer and die  on the battlefields of Europe and Asia  Minor. She is raising money for loans  and war funds. She has glimpsed a  vision���������the vision of true commonweal, and by her action has not only  saved herself from ainutrition and decay, hut is preserving and perpetuating a society wider than Canada, yet  one within which she can fulfil all  her hopes, ambitions and service.���������  Buffalo News.  iSmT^^IBmTmV^liynmW^  What We Owe to the  Farmers  "O ���������������*"��������������� Vk ������������������*���������, til*-      1-tr-������      **-������ fm.     *-* + "V������  *���������*-������     ������-fc������1i m^r      S\ ?     *-t-* ^     ���������������< ������**.**��������� ���������  J.     ���������.v/iJUV''''        xxx      *������rr     VIUVI        yiAJ  I.

Dr.  The appeals for peace from neutral  he strictly regulated, if not prohibited  countries, obviously inspired by tier-  nHnsmtVinr   for  nn   indofinita    -nam-inA  man-Americans,      German-Swiss      or  ������tuer hyphenated patriots, is an. un-  xnistaakbie sign that Germany feels  lier force is on the decline. That being so, it follows naturally tnat tne  sooner she makes, or tries to make,  peace, the better leverage for bargaining she will have. On the other hand,  the entente powers are just as anxious  lor peace as Germany, but it must oe  peace on their terms. If the enemy  is not ready to accept these terms,  the war wiii continue unui j-jjt  The subject or. peace terms is, therefore, of interest just now. it txxu,j u<  welt to glance first at the terms Germany anticipated in case 01 ���������  when she was in the midst of her do-  liberate preparations t.\tx lu.������o \,~.x.  They were 'published about seven  years ago in a French magazine, in  th������ form of a signed interview with  a prominent German official, whose  name was withheld for obvious reasons. The German stated that his  countrymen had calculated the cost of  defeat on the following basis:  The surrender of Meiz and Lorraine  to France.  The neutralization of Alsace.  The return of Schleswig-Holstein to  Denmark.  Aa. indemnity of 1400,000,000 to  France.  The cession of the Kameruns and  Togland to France.  The cession of German East and  Southwest. Africa to England.  The return of Heligoland to England,  The transfer of six German iron-  elads and twelve German cruisers to  England.  An indemnity of $600,000 to Russia^  Boundary rectifications in favor of  Russia.  It may no\. be interesting to glance  at the terms of peace in the event of a  German victory. They were published  shortly after the outbreak of the  war, and it was stated later that, -owing to the "serious inconveniences" to  which the allies had put poor inoffensive Germany, they would probably be  made much more exacting when the  time came tp formulate them officially. The reader will notice the difference between the two sets of terms.  The following represent the demands  of a victorious Germany:  The cession of all-France's overseas  empire, amounting to 4,397,826 square  miles, with a population of approximately 65,000,000.  The cession of north-eastern France,  which includes some of the richest  iron districts in Central Europe, and  has numerous blast furnaces and iron  works. .  The demolition of all French forts  on that frontier.  The reduction of the French army  to 200,000   (from three million).  The signing of a treaty of commerce on terms to be dictated by Germany.  The payment of an indemnity of  $'1,000,000,000, Germany to practically  occupy tho country until two-thirds  had been paid in gold.  Franco to abandon Britain and Russia and sign an alliance with Germany for a period  of  25  years.  Those are only the terms to be demanded from France according to  Professor Hasekal. England was to  bo occupied by German troops and tho  British overseas dominions were to be  taken over. Belgium was to be absorbed, together with her Congo territory in Africa, Poland was to be reestablished ao a part of Austria. Tho  Russian Baltic provinces wcx'o to bo  given up to Germany.

Prince Urges Efficient Means  in   Getting  After   it  J. D. Prince, professor of Slavonic languages at Columbia University, New York, speaking at a luncheon of the Canadian Club at Montreal,  impressed upon the club the importance of cultivating more extensive  trade relations with Russia during the  war, so that after the war was over  the Dominion might bear its share in  permanently ousting the German-s  from Russian trade. There was a very  large attendance and much interest  altogether, for an indefinite period. ^'as aroused by Dr. Prince's explana-  The Balkan kingdoms must be recon-!tlon  ?f  Russia's  advance  during the  stituted, as tar as practicable, in accordance with nationalist principles,  and also taking into account the attitude of its various peoples towards  this war. for civilization. Italy must  receive special consideration, both in  the north, where thero are large numbers of her sons under Austrian rule,  and in Albania. Turkey will have to  be thrown right out of Europe. Russia, in that case, would probably obtain Constantinople in addition to territorial compensation in East Prussia  and elsewhere. Japan will no doubt  find satisfaction in the retention of  Kiau Chau, and possibly some other  portions of the German overseas empire.  The indemnity question will no  doubt receive special consideration.  Germany has crippled herself terribly  in her mad adventure, but the allies  must think of. justice, before mercy,  and in this connection any nonsense  from the pacificist cranks must v ���������  overwhelmed immediately by- the  whole force of public opinion. The future of the world for a century to come  is just as much at stake in settling  the terms of peace as in winning the  war. There is just one other point  worth mentioning, and that is that the  allies should, and probably will, refuse  to recognize the Kaiser or the government or any of those who are considered to be responsible for the war.  The German people will have to bear  the terrible cost of it, and the allies  should treat with them direct through  their parliament.

He pointed out that before the war  practically all Russia's foreign trade  was handled by the Germans. This  huge trade could be taken- over by  Canada, in part at least, if it adopted  the same efficient means of getting  after it, such as working through trade  agents, and especially training men  at the universities and in business  ways so that they would not only understand Russian conditions, but be  able to speak the language. This latter, Dr. Prince emphasized, was a  prime factor, and he advocated the  establishment of work along these  lines in at least two Canadian universities, one in the east and one in the  west.  Testing Seed Grain  COLD STORAGE REPORT  It   is    doubtful   if any subject, excepting  only  the  war  itself,  at this  juncture in the world's history is  commanding more attention than the  products of the dairy, with which  cold storage is intimately allied.  Therefore, the report of the dairy  and cold storage commissioner for'  the  fiscal   year   ending   March   31st,  -<nirr     ���������--*���������,,������������������ 4-1.  issuer.  fttm.  be had on application to the publications-branch,   department     of   agriculture, Ottawa, will doubtless be received  with  more  than  ordinary  attention. The commissioner, Mr. J. A.  Ruddick, briefly records    his  experience    on a visit to Europe as Canadian   government     delegate     to  . the  sixth   International     Dairy   Congress  held in .Tune, 1914, at Berne, Switzerland.     Returning    via     England,   he  found   that possible favor, commanding even a" better price than that of  New Zealand, where special and un-  remlttent efforts are being made  to  capture the  British trade    in    dairy  products,  and  where the  cheese factories have recently greatly increased  in    number.    Cautuiiuu  cheese,    Mr.  Ruddick  testifies,    has     become   the  standard  for    all    importations.    Ho  paid a visit of inspection to the centres of the  Chedder cheese  industry  in  Shropshire,  Flintshire,  and    Cheshire and was surprised at its extent.  An interesting account is given m  the report of the extension of marketing facilities and of tho operations of  the Finch and Brome dairy stations.

Many    Samples    of Oats and   Barley  Show Signs of Frost Damage and  Are Unfit For Seed  Germination tests made on oats  wheat and barley this fall at the Dominion seed laboratory, at Calgary,  show that there are considerable  Quantities of oats and barley, particularly in Alberta and Saskatchewan which are unfit for seed. The  average percentage germination for  Alberta oats is 68 per cent, and none  of the samples of Alberta oats received have germinated up to the  standard which is 95 per cent. Moreover the average preliminary count  which is made at the end of six days  is as low as 35 per cent. Good seed  oats should give a preliminary count  of 85 per cent, to 90 per cent, and a  final (14-day) count of 90 per cent.  to 98 per cent, of vital seeds.  Samples of oats received from Saskatchewan are somewhat better. The  average preliminary count is 50 per  cent, and the average final count is  86 per cent. Many samples show evidence of frost injury, these always  giving low percentages of vital seeds,  both in the preliminary and final  counts. Alberta barley has also given  low germination percentages. The  average preliminary (-6-day) count is  52 per cent, and the^average final (14-  day) count is 70 per cent. Theso figures are very low and indicate that  considerable proportions of Alberta  oats and barley and Sasaktchewan  oats are weak in vitality and undesirable for seed purposes.  As one  of the  first essentials  for  a good crop of any kind is good seed,  it is  important that  only good  seed  with  strong germination  energy  and  a    high    percentage* of   germinable  seeds should be used.    The germination energy   of a sample is indicated  by the  percentage  of    seeds    which  germinate    during    the first four or  five days of the test.    The premilin-  ary count,    therefore, is an index of  the  germination  energy.    If,  for  example, the    preliminary    count on a  sample of oats    is 25 per cent., the  germination energy of tho sample is  very  low,    but    if    the   preliminary  count   is   90   per cent., the germination energy is   strong.   Two samples  may vary as widely as    this in the  preliminary count,    but may contain  the  same percentage    of  vital  seeds  ���������in whicli    case    tho    final    counts  would    be    the    same.    If the final  counts only were considered, one of  these  samples  would  be thought  to  ba as good as    the^ other,    while iu  reality one    is guuu  aeeu    ������.ii������    tlio  other   undesirable   for   uso   as   seed.  The sample   with a high preliminary  count    will    withstand    unfavorable  weather   conditions    at   the tlmo of  seeding very much better than    the  other.    It    will  give  a moro    oven  =*tand on the field and a -crop which  vs ill    in    all probability  ripen somewhat ear.lier.  Farmors should satisfy themselves  beforo Beeding timo next spring that  their seed grain is of tho best quality. This can only be done by a  germination test, conducted either at  homo or at tho Dominion need laboratory In Calgary.

"Recently a colonel sent in a request  for a night's entertainment for his  men, but added that it might be wise  to send someone in advance io' view a course  his accommodations, as all he had was  an old barn," he writes. "We found  the officers and all the men assembled  in the old barn, and, although without heat or light, we had a merry  evening. The piles of last year's straw  served as desirable seats for a large  number, while the overhead beams  were crowded with those w*ho wanted  uninterrupted views. The curtain was  suspended among the cobwebs and the  pathescope machine mounted on a  couple of bully beef boxes, while the  gramophone was honored with a smail  table borowed from a farm house.  "No audience at a famous theatre  could have enjoyed the evening better than those chaps. When the  phonograph played pieces they knew  they all.joined in, and several times  during the evening they enlivened the  barn with selections that were not  known when the first division left Canada. Eight rolls of films were shown,  and when at the close of the evenin?  ���������the colonel called for cheers for the  Y.M.C.A., they made the rafters ring,  and an officer from the column, who  accompanied tue. said. 'The 'Y.' sure  has a place in the hearts of those  men.'  "Five nights a week are spent in  this way, and so far the column have  loaned me a car so that these piaces  can be reached. They average eight  miles from the central 'Y.'  "Recently I asked an officer from  an Ontario town to accompany me on  one of these trips and operate the  machine, which he gladly did. At the  close of the evening he said: 'Do you  know, the last time I was in the 'Y.'  thev put me out for using bad language,'and th������re I've run through eix  films and haven't sworn once.'

Tho wall, which was sunk into the  ground to a depth of 100 feet, was  fifteen feet thick, of solid concrete,  and experts believed that tho subterranean fire would novev eat  through it, but that it would prevent   it   ii:oi'u   spreading   auy   far thei"  The  There i-x no renl HuhHtllute which  Germany ban (Uncovered for the nee-  CHHltleH of war and or llio.

A largo force of men aro at work  drilling holes deep into the earth,  and into thoso openings water and  slush Is being poured directly on tho  subterranean fire, in tho hope of preventing a rapid spread, if impossible  to extinguish it.  Already thhi fire has destroyed  millions of dollars worth of coal,  while the sixty-year fight, to extinguish it hag cost enormous sums.  0 As most people know, there has  never been a war, in wh!<m the British commissariat department has  made as good a showing as in this  one.  Although  the    food    supplies    are  taken across from Britain, our troops  always have their meals prepared for -  them���������three "times a day, good wholesome food in abundance.  The rations are carefully chosen  to support the constitution, and to  avoid any possible stomachic complications. In this respect all the  doctors agree the feeding of the men  has been splendidfly effective.  There have been other troubles, of  >urse. Last year there were hardships which were inevitable, especially in the French lines, and, yet tho  cases of illness due to the weather  conditions and the discomforts of the  trenches were negligible. * This year  the French High Command has  taken every advantage of the experience they gained during the last  winter campaign.  The French troops are better fed  than trhe Germans. On the other side  of the iron wall built across Europe,  the Germans in the first line are  given only one meal a day���������at noon  ���������and have to be contented at night  with the coffee served out to them,  ov else with- such provisions as they  have been able to buy for themselves.  The .French commissariat has never failed to provide the entire army  with two good meals a -day, and  whan the temperature requires it,  hot drinks���������tea, coffee and fixed  measures of alcohol���������will be served  out regularly.  Excellent service is being rendered  by the cuisines roulantes (horse-  drawn camp kitchens), which are attached to all the army corps at the  front, and a light railway (two-feet  gauge) has been constructed to link  up the distributing centres with the  various rail-heads.  The troops have been, vfe!! provided with warm clothing, and wherever  necessary they have received new  uniforms. Special attention has been  paid to the soldiers' boots. The  smallest units now have their cobblers' shops, and at the present  moment new marching boots and  puttees are being distributed liberally. For the trenches waders have  been supplied, but one of the best  devices for keeping the men's feet  dry has oeen found to be Uio ordinary wooden sabot. Warm underclothing of all kinds has now been  liberally provided by the state and  more than one private organization.  The most radical reforms that the  French and British troops have adopted, however, is in the direction ot  making the trenches as comfortable  and healthy as possible.  A great feature of these improvised barracks is the stove, the placo  of which in the front trenches is  tal'en by the charcoal brazier. Coal  may hr> short, hut. in tho firincr line  there is no scarcity of wood." For  lighting it has been found that acetylene is both cheap and handy.  The    German  newspapers   talk at  great length    ot    the    arrangements  mado by their rulers to enable their  soldiers to keep- themselves clean, although, as a matter of fact, the German soldier     is extremeily dirty.    In  the French army   as, in the British  tho complete absence of all epidemic  | shows  how   well  tho   high  command  has looked  after the men from this  point of view.    Every precaution    is  taken   to   ensure  a  good     stinnlv  of  drinking water,   oven Jn places    like  the  Champagne Pouilleuse, whoro in  tlme3  of peace  good  water was  extremely scarce.  All tlio men have received from tho  military doctors a series of short Instructions to enable them to prevent  themselves from being frost bitten.  A very large number of men ure  working on the roads, whicli are now,  it is certain, better kept in tho zone  of tho armies than those noar Paris.  Mechanical transport Is beln^ used  as far as possible, even quite near  the firing line, in order to spare tho  men all physical exertion which can  bo avoided.
