Already much timber has been cut. Things certainly  look busy around the North and Cher-  boranches, where the camp is located.  Mesdames Good, Tuohey, Loasby  and Dennes were Creston callers on  Tuesday.  Bob Dixon of Wynndel was a Sirdar  visitov on Wednesday.  The Casy-Jones motor, owned by  C. M. "Loasby, is in the Kootenay  garage at Creston, undergoing repairs.  The coming of spring and warm  weather seems to be a terribly slow  process this year. ���������  J. Healey was a Creston caller on  Sunday.  Mrs. Antonio Pascuzzo, an oldtime  resident of Sirdar, died in the St.  Eugene Hospital at Cranbrook on  Sunday. Much sympathy is felt for  the family in their bereavement-  this week moving into the new house  being erected on their ranch, a part  of which has been rushed to . completion to accommodate them.  Victor- Carr and Guy Lowenberg  each invested in a new work horse  this week. The former's is one of the  blacks of the P. Barns team.  Mr. Fairbairn" of Winnipeg, owner  of the Swanson ranch, is here on a  visit to his property this week. There  are in the neighborhood, of 11,000  trees on the place, which will soon be  coming into bearing.  LEtTEBS TO f HE JD1T0R  Again That Foremost Debate  Miss Bucks-ton, from Sheffield,  England, arrived in Creston on Tuesday, on a visit to her brother-in-law,  II. Mather, of the firm Reed & Mather.  Potatoes planting has started in  these parts. * ft. Stewart was busy the  early part of the week putting in the  Irish apples.  Mrs. Mason, Misses Gladys Mason  and Alice Carr, and Messrs. Can-, "Boy-  dell and Earl Pease were the Siding's  representatives at the "Wynndel box  social an Saturday night.  ... Notwit"n^tandujg~tlie severe winter  the .raspberry canes in these parts  seem to have come through the cold  spell in rare good shape, and strawberries never looked more promising.  School closed for the Easter holidays  yesterday, and will re-open on May  1st.  Clem Payette is moving from Ores-  ton this week into the former Compton home, just vacated by the. Me-  Murtrie's.  John Miller appears to be about the  only local rancher who is setting out  any new trees this spring. He is putting in ahout 200 apple trees.  Ben Palmer of Cranbrook was here  un Saturday foi- his annual visit to his  ���������10-acre plot that adjoins the Cempton  ranch to the east. He may be back a  little later to do some clearing, set  out, some trees, and put up a small  house.  Scotty Todd, who has been working  in Creston for the past couple of  months, returned last week for the  summer on his ranch.  Mr. and Mrs. W. A. McMurtrie, who  have been occupying the Compton  house since their home was destroyed  hy lire nt the end of December, are  Conservatives, Notice  A special meeting ol1 the  Creston Conservative Association  will be    held  al  Grsstes Mercantile Kail  SATURDAY, APRIL 29tb  at &30 p.m.  to name a candidate to  submit to the nomination  convention to be held at  Kaslo, B.C., and to elect  smch further and other  delegates to attend the  said convention as may ho  necessary.  E. "Uri was a visitor to Canyon Oity  on Sunday.  J. Bathie was a Creston caller on  Monday.    -";-..  The tennis" court was used for the  first time this season on Sunday.- The  members enjoyed a long afternoon at  the royal s^oi-t.  Strawberry planting is all in the  fashion these days. Many ranchers  are increasing their acreage of this  fruit considerably. ...  Mrs. Butterfield reeeiyed a telegram  6b Tuesday from the militia department stating that Pte. Philip Butterfield had been wounded in the left arm  and also suffering from a contused foot  and had been admitted to No. 23  General Hospital at Epales. No  further infornmation has yet been obtained by the militia authorities.  lliciisutti j;uuu otitic vvevo ciijfJycCl Dy  the crowd of visitors from Crest-on,  Canyon City and Alice Siding besides,  of course, the" local crowd, at the  basket social here on Saturday \ night.  With the advantage as to numbers  being with-the onen. thiscaused the  bidding at the auction to be brisk and  lively, and a good deal of amusement  was caused in the auctioning of the  baskets. Of the seventeen offered for  sale the highest, fetched $3.25 and the  lowest $1.25, while the lot realized a  grand total of $39.57���������an average of  $2.32 each. The ladies certainly proved to everyone's satisfaction that,  their decorative genius was as good as  their culinary abilities which, speaking from experience, we can say can  not be beat.  Canyon City  Harry White returned home from  the Continental Mine at Port, Hill on  Sunday.  Greyer Kifer received a letter from  John Carfra, from "'somewhere* in  France" last week. He was with the  CM.R. and had not seen any lighting,  nor mentioned anyth'ng about being  a sniper as was reported.  There is no definite word as to  when the roadwork will commence.  lt is reported that about the mime  amount will be spent this year as in  1015.'  Six teams aro engaged hauling lumber to the Siding, making four trips  daily.  J. W. Wood left on Sunday for  Nelson.  Most of the bridge crow havo been  engaged getting out square timber,  25-foot posts and cedar braces. Only  some ten men are now working.  Grand Fork-* icecream parlors opened for business last, week.  Vernon will have a rose show in  June as well uh iln regular ilowcr show  in August.  Lately from live to 22 carloads of  coke beyr* been a-ri-ivlnir dally in  Greenwood.  Owing to the mcaidcH outbreak the  junior rooms in the lloHHlaud schools  will be closed until after Kan ter.

Our. worthy Wynndel critic states that  he has no axe tg: grind except his  ������������������Makers;" no object except to attempt  to place this discussion on- its true  basis. 'Let us here state in reply1 that  while grinding his: "Maker's" axe may  be a. very laudable occupation to the  mind of some, yet -we do not follow  exactly.  The - axe   we   are   more concerned  about here and now is this earthly  master's (or exploiters) axe as wielded  by the ruling class of today through a  social system of injustice and exploitation,   whereby they exact tribute or  profit from all ^ho toil, denying to  every man bufcihe small end of the  whole  loaf  which; honest labor has  produced, and to which it is justly entitled; until grinding poverty is their  portion, and anxious care their pillow;  and that  midst,a   world of plenty'.  Mid such conditions behold our worthy  critic busying;������������������ himself  grinding   his  Milker's axe,  and apparently content  perceiving this to be his whole duty,  as doubtless do the sanctified saints.  This eternal emphasizing the "Maker" side to the neglect of the  "Man"  side of things is exemplified in some  measure by  what  is  transpiring   in  Europe today. .This  cart before the  horse style; this; supernatural before  the .natural;?/*^is:, theology   before  sociology; this/inner.and*spiritual before the oufeiK-iiF'td f^ to  explain why we-are wher-e we are today,   existing    uuder.   a   system   of  society that is a transparant fraud and  -worse to any sane thinking mind free  from blind belief, and the darkness Of  superstition's starless night.  Further on we read, "Churches are  crystalizations. They represent some  phase of truth, which has become  overlaid with much that is merely  irrevelant." Yes, we certainly agree,  there is such an overlaying accumulation of creeds, forms, ceremonies, beliefs, traditions, dogmas, doctrines and  divinity, form without substance, that  truth made its departure disgusted  ages ago, -is faith without works it*  dead.  Again he says, "I say nothing about,  the many forms of Soci-:lfc:n which  ai-e offered for our selection (like the  advertisements for quack medicines),  except, that they all agree in this,  that none of them offer ns any constructional policy," etc. Well, well,  and at this stage of human enlightenment, such a thought is either begotten  of ignorance or wilful misrepresent*!  and what isn't;. We respectfully decline to submit to any such ruling;  to surrender onr mind nnd reasoning  faculties to another, and become a  corpse.  From whence, might we enquire,  cometh this superior knowledge and  wisdom, whereby he presumes to make  us believe he isinvested with. Through  Apostolic Succession, doubtless; all  from the realm of the supernatural  and speculative. Well, we have just  about as "much belief in the efficacy  of the Apostolic Succession, or kissing  the Pope's toe, as we have in witchcraft, purgatory, or that there are'  two suns shining on this world, gi- i  to  jt*  5*  give medicine to  dead men. Neither  it really essential  to conjugate the Greek Verbs  before one can come to conclusions as  to the probability of dead people getting out of their graves. Nothing but  education, scientific education, can  benefit mankind, which puts super-: fcne|r  stitions and blind belief out of court  Members of the Creston Fruit Growers' Union and other independent  growers, and shippers of fruit and  vegetables from Creston district are  asked to attend a public meeting of  farmers on Monday, April 24th, at 2  p.m. at the Auditorium, Creston,  when plans for the co-operative marketing-'of the season's output will be  Jaid before the meeting by.tbe manager of the. Okanagan United Growers,  Mr. Jackson,'J, J. Campbell of Willow  Point, and possibly W- E. MeTaggart,  the prairiefruit markets commissioner,  and otlvn-s representing the government.  There   never was a time  when cooperative action by  the farmers and  f.iuit   growers   in  the marketing   of  produce --was  ��������� more    urgently  needed  than   at    present.      Increase  However, "We wish you to observe cost of production on the farm from  that modern religion as preached to-' seas-city of labor must make, it plain  day, and 'Christianity as preached and t > all that united action for effective  practised by its Founder 20 centuries, marketing 'without ruinous eompeti-  ago, are as far apart in principles'aud  truth as the poles are asulider." A  most astounding assertion,, indeed,  says Father Magui re. Maybe, truth  is bfttime**' found to be stranger than  fiction.  Father Maguire says there are some  200 million benighted Catholics who  will be eternally beholden to the  writer if he first states very clearly  those truths and principles preached  by the Founder 20 centuries ago and  those preached by the Catholic Church  today. We had an idea that we had  already expressed   ourselves on  this \ dividunlism and move as a body in one.  tion and overlapping of distribution is  of utmost importance.  Let us put individualism aside and  fraternize for the common good of the  whole iu this time of worldwide stress.  Nations do it. Laborers and all other  industrial and commercial classes do  it,. And how can we as farmers and  fruit growers���������the basic industries on  w hich all nations' industries are built  ���������become firm and solid w ithout interlocking unity.  The time has come when we should  cast aside personal frictions and in-  point relative to the lowly Galilean,  the principles he stood for and died  for. However, to enlarge a little fur*������  ther   :^  natural man and his earthly life altogether free from the deification, and  supernatural since attributed to him),  we find in Hirn the viril;*- exponent of  a practical, temporal, social gospel  exemplified by himself through a life  of social service toward his fellow man.  and their social salvation, His was a  temporal Gospel of Deeds not Creeds,  a gospel concerning life here and now,  based upon liberty aud justice, truth  and fraternity, for common humanity;  and not a gospel of sin, soul and salvation since manufactured and attached to Him.  In this connection note the following taken from the "printed pagv-"  "Most people imagine that the creeds  we have came from the brain and  heart of Christ. They "nave uu idea  how it. was made. They think' it, was  all made at one time. They don't,  understand that it was a slow growth.  They don't understand that theology  is a science made up of mistakes, prejudices, and falsehoods.

Ever  since that time the office has been  constantly   receiving   accretion   from  the   government  de-  froni   various   other  the law courts,  partments, and  quarters.

A   Year   Without   Saloons     the   Most  Prosperous in the History of. the  City  After going a year without saloons  the city of Des Moines makes this report through the Register and Leader:  "One year ago today, the eighty-  six saloons of Des Moines closed  their doors, and there are few men  in touch with the affairs of the city  who are not ready to say that the  past year has been the best, most  prosperous, and most orderly in the  history of* Des Moines.  "Des Moines does not need to rely  on general impressions, however. The  record of bank clearances is sufficient proof of a new high record in  business prosperity. Police and county  records show a 50 per cent, decrease  in crime and disorder. A walk  through the business district reveals  the absence of untenanted store  rooms.

Doctors call it  "post-grippal" neurasthenia,  One of the foremost medical authorities Of New York city in a lecture in  the international clinics, said:  "Broadly speaking, every victim of  la grippe will suffer from post-grippal neurasthenia also. Lowering of nervous tone with increased irrtFability  is the most striking effect of the disease, langour of mind and body, disturbed, fitful sleep and vague pains in  the head and elsewhere. The treatment calls for rest and a tonic."  ,  If you have had la grippe read those  symptoms again: "Langour of mind  and body, disturbed, fitful sleep and  vague pains in the head and elsewhere." If you have any or all of  them it means that you are still suffering from the effects of la grippe and  that you will not be well and free from  Distinguished  ia  danger of relapse until your blood  built up.  The treatment, says the distinguished physician, quoted above, is rest aud  a tonic, pr, Williams'- Pink Pills, a  non-alcoholic tonic, are particularly  suited for building up" the blood and  strengthening the nerves after an attack of grippe.

"We would not be here, free  men, today," he said, "if it were not  for the British navy." The navy had  stopped the commerce of Germany,  while from every part of the empire  ships laden with provisions, munitions and war supplies of all *4cinds,  made their way ya safety to the  ���������mother land.  "If Great Britain,'' he said, "had  been as well prepared on land as on  sea, this war 'would not have been."  The Britsh navy had made of the  great German navy a sort of glorified canal boat.  '  The speaker declared emphalically  that the British empire would "never  lay down its arms until Germany had  iteen beaten. The German army had  already been ringed In with walls of  steel. He spolce with deep feeling of  the splendid heroism of the Austral-  tan troops on the Peninsula of Galli-  opli, instancing one charge in which  an Australian battalion-went forward  knowingly to certain death after its  members had left their last farewells  ���������with those who stayed behind. This  splendid act, he said, far outshone the 1  famous charge of the Light Brigade  at Balaclava.  Premier Hughes, referring to his  inclusion as a member of the Canadian government, said: "I hold this  position in trust for the Australian  people." The war, he went on to say,  Jiad found the empire a scattered  family of nations. It w-ouid leave it  a homogeneous whoje.  "We could have purchased an ignoble peace," Premier. Hughes - as-  gerted. . "The Germans were prepared  to treat Canadians as an independent  nation and to confer a like favor on  Australia. In this attitude they were  like the man-eating tiger which deals  with its victims separately. Germany now knows that she is fighting  not only England, but also the men  of adventure and resolution, in all the  British Dominions, who will fight  to the end alongside those who gave  them their traditions. AVe shall not  Quit while life remains in us."  "The issues at stake are vital," continued Premier Hughes. "Although  some may look on with an air of  indifference, and hold themselves  aloof, they are being enveloped,  against their will", in this great struggle, which, like some great, tidal  wave sweeps resistlessly. over the  whole earth an������$ cannot be dammed  here or there by the act of any man  or any nation. The destiny of the  world "is trembling in the balance and  every nation, and every man, must  make, up its or his mind on which  side to take a stand."  This war' would leave the world  different from what it found it. The  war had come at once as a mighty  spur, a sedative, a corrective���������perhaps needed by our race for its salvation. It would profoundly affect  the destiny of tho whole world. If  by any malign stroke of fate the issue should turn against us, the clock  of civilization would be set back a  uuiiuFcu years, Tlio war fell upon  the empire menaced with turmoil.  But at the first rattling of the sabre  turmoil died down, dissension ceased  and we were a united people. There  was not n man from Dan to Beers-  sheba, there was no place from one  end of the empire to the other where  (ho peoplo did not stand four souaro  against lho common oneiViy.  The premier said that during tlio  eighteen months of lhe war Australians and Canadians hnd on tlio field  of battlo proved that, tho ancient  valor of their sires still burned in  (heir veins. Canadians and AiiBtrnl-  ians had both provod themselves to  be men. Thoy realized that it affected (heir very cxiHlenoe.

"During a bombing 'strafe*1 at a  German sap," he saj-s, -"somehow the  fuses of our bombs were a little damp.  And hardly a bomb exploded at all.  But the Germans re-lit the fuses, and  began to throw the bombs back.  "Then our bombing officer had an  idea. He took the damp fuses from  the bombs and put in some instantaneous ones���������with the result that  when the Germans put a light to  them, after our fellows had throSvn  them over, they immediately exploded.  "I  think    they    spent  miserable    half-hour    of  lighting      instantaneous  blowing   themselves    up  They   did   not   disturb   us  after  that."  "At many parts of the line you are  within easy speaking distance of the  enemy, and many amusing conversations, generally ended by ������ few bombs,  have taken place.

A similar classification may be made of the farmers  who till the soil.    The farmer wiio is  Money In Poultry  not' noted especially for the remarkable results of his large farm aud  large herds, but with whom making  money, while carried on effectively,  is "secondary to living a life full of  helpful deeds to his fellow man, maybe' classed as a "flower in' the rural  community.  Rural life may be lacking in many  things, but of all the things lac-king  the greatest lack is in life ideals. The  rush for dollars from early morning  until late at night with a view only  of expanding the farm and possessing more wealth than the neighbor  is one of the evils which has come  with modern commercial agriculture.  The farmer with higher ideals should  bo more appreciated, for 'in proportion as riches and the rich mon are  honored in the state, no are virtue  and virtuous disnonored, and what  is honored is cultivated, and what is  dishonored is neglected," according  to. Plato. The following is the cleiiui-  tion of a "real farmer," written by-  one of the flowers of souvlnern Wisconsin's rural life, a man of whom  every -citizen of Wisconsin should be  proud:  "And who is this real farmer?

Eggs Marketed During the Winter and'  Early Spring  Bring Big  Profits  Whether hatched in an "apparatus"  or under a hen, a winter-laying fowl  is a paying proposition in our country,  at least.    To support my  statement, I wish to mention a few of the  many cases in the county where the  humble hen is doing her part in keeping the profit and loss balance on the  right side of the account, says a writ-  l er in an American farm journal.  One farmer, who could not possibly  be? called & professional poultr-**- man,  as he owns, operates and lives upon a  1,600-acre farm and markets potatoes  and grain by the carload, is very enthusiastic over the profits realized  from the flock of 100 Barred Rocks  which he keeps through the winter.  The strain-is not "fancy" nor is their  housing or feeding carried on according to book. They are just plain hens,  cared for as many farmers' hens  should be; hatched early, fed and watered regularly, with free range in  summer and a warm, house in winter.  This man assures us that chickens  pay well ou the farm.  Another very aggressive farmer reports that tho eggs marketed througli  the winter and early spring enabled  him to keep a bit ahead of his grocery  bill all the time, and the family at his  table numbered sixteen. On this farm,  like the other, the poultry industry is  not. emphasized; the fowls are given  comfortable quarters and ordinary  care, but tho owner known that they  are giving good returns for the cap-  ital"and labor invested.  There are other instances which I  might mention, where the egg  money from a small flock was practically all the cash new settlers saw  during thoir first season in the- country; and still others where the actual  profits from an entire farm consisted of the good wife's' egg money.  1 do not lovo chickens except in  pot pio or roasted; 1 know of "no  other living creature which has so  many different ways of being irritating as the hen allowed unlimited  indulgence in her natural proclivities. But when restricted in her  range, and given half a chance, Hhe  will make it all up In tho number of  "strictly fresh" she will keep in iho  egg  basket.  It "-was in 1885  vinces were first  other and with ths  the completion of the line of railway.  Their agricultural history may therefore be said to date from that time j  and the thirty year period of growth  is often pointed to with pride as a  wonderful record of development. To  bring under cultivation an acreage  capable of producing a crop of nearly  a thousand million bushels of grain  is no small accomplishment. Yet if  the whole history of the thirty years  were written it -wc'sli contain many  records of failures and setbacks that  would be discouraging* if considered  in full detail. The statement has  been made that the present areas under cultivation have tc a large extent  been settled upon twice, the first arrivals having given up the struggle  when faced by a short crop. This  can be true only in a general way.  It would probably be more correct  to say that over the dry belt a large  percentage of settlers failed to make  a permanent home. - *"   __  The same. sort of experiences have  been recorded in all of the western  states. Kansas, which is now the  foremost wheat producing state of  tibe Union has a hisfibry almost tragic. Droughts, cyclones "and insect  plagues followed one after.'the other  and the farm population was several'  times reduced to a fraction of what  it had been in prosperous years. The  valiant few who held on through all  the dark years had the satisfaction  of winning out in the end. It was a  natural selection of those who were  able to adapt their methods to the  neAv conditions which confronted  them not unlike the tests that were  applied to the men of Gideon in the  olden time.

It  was a season when the usual sign  failed and the miraculous happened.  With the abundance of rain during  the growing season there was cool  weather which retarded the ripening  of the grain. Had the early fall  frost come at the usual time it would  have reduced the quantity and quality  of the crop to a considerable extent.  As' it was harvesting- and threshing  were completed with very little damage.  Good authorities have been  agreed  that for the  best  results  in  dry districts a succession of wheat crops are  not    desirable and  that  summer fallowing every few years or the judicious rotation  with other crops.is the  safest plan.    Even  in 1915 the force  of many of these  teachings  was  exemplified.     At.   the   University   Farm  at Saskatoon, Prof. Bracken has hitow  conducting a largo number of experiments  on  the  yields  as   affected  by  the previous crops, showing tliat th������,-  lowest   yield   was   following  a-   wheat,  crop  and   tho   highest  after  summer  fallowing.    Next, to summer fallowing  as a preparation for wheat is corn or  ,oots.  this  being  in  accordance   with  results obtained  at other experimental farms.  With outs the same general results  were obtained, those on stubble giving 81: bushels ns compared with 68  bushels on wheat ground, Other  crops showed <i corresponding increase on fallow as compared with  wheat, ground, tho prccentsige gains  being 21 for barley, 10 for flax, -Id for  rye and 50 for potatoes.  Among eleven differently cultivated plots of wheat, stubble '.he one  that was burned In the sprint;' and  double' diticed, packed mid harrowed,  returned moro not profit than any  other, and yielded moro bushels per  aero than nny other treatment, except  early shallow fall plowing that was  well worked down. This statement  applies to tlio effect of this tillage on  the yield or not one crop only, but on  tho yield of each of six different  crops���������-wheat, oats, barley, rape, '<  potatoes nnd corn.  Fall plowing, duo probably to the  unusuul lato fall rains of 1914, produced slightly moro than nprlng  plowing In 1915. For tlio year 1914 Lhe  opposite was true.

The climbing tower will be  unusual,    enabling it soon to    roach  10,000 feet,    the height of   tho night  raiding Zeppelins.  Thero will bo a sixty horsepower  screw, for use when tho machine is  on the water. Tho engines will be  self-starting, and the machine will be  heavily armored. Each machine will  carry a S^-lnch rapid fire gun and  torpedoes of a now kind.

Goose Shooting  The closing of the goose shooting  season on April 1st again brings  forward the rather absurd feature  of the gome regulations that makes  the killing of these birds unlawful  from April 1st until some time in  September. So far as this part of  the province is concerned there  should be no close season for  geese.  These birds go south in the  winter, arriving here for a short  stay at a time when little or no  hunting can be done with real  comfort, and are shot at will, with  little or no restriction, by American  sportsmen. On their flight north  in the spring they arrive too early  for seasonable hunting and by the  time conditions���������climatic and  otherwise���������are rather favorable the  close season is upon ns, the birds  passing on to their- feeding grounds  where tliey in turn are prey to  hunters further north who enjoy  at least a couple of months killing  before the southern trek is commenced.  With his facility for juggling the  regulations which permit of certain  sections killing grouse this yoar  and denying that privilege in other  communities, a,nd other irregtlari-  ties in dates for open and closing  the seasons, Game Warden  Williams cannot confound things  much worse than they aro at  present by providing this open  the year round season for geese in  those parts where conditions  correspond with those hereabout.  who will test the cream, on which  tpst the price paid will depend, and  this personal-meeting feature will,  doubtless, strengthen the confidence  patrons will need to have in the  man in charge of such an industry.  If the financial  standing of the  creamery appears  sound   and   the  price allowed for cream is sufficiently  high,   the  creamery  should   be  given a tryout.    It will save  labor  at a period when the time so saved  can be spent to good  advantage in  several   other  directions,   and   the  cash thus received should help solve  the   average     rancher's   shopping  problems to some extent.    Besides,  it will get the creamery habit going  as well as  enlarging the   dairying  industry in   the  "Valley���������-provided  the   returns   are   satisfactory,    of  course���������both of  which   details are  devoutly to be hoped for in view of  the   not   distant  date   when   the  Creston Valley creamery will be  a  reality.  trusted to say whether or no they  want a "dry" era, surely they -**aii  be also trusted to pronounce  intelligently on compensation also.

Thousands of women in Canada have  overcome their sufferings, and have  been cured of woman's ills by Dr. Pierce's  Favorite Prescription. This temperance  medicine, though started nearly halCa  century ago, sells most widely to-day,  because it is made without alcohol or  ! narcotics. It can now be had in tal-'et  form as well as liquid, and every woman  who suffers from backache, headache,  nervousness, should take this "Prescription" of Dr. Pierce.    It is prepared from  nature's roots and herbs and does not  contain a particle of alcohol or any narcotic. It's not a secret prescription for  its ingredients are printed on wrapper.  Many a woman is nervous and irritable, feels dragged down and worn out  for no reason that she can think of. In  ninety-nine per cent, of these cases it  is the womanly organism that requires  attention; the- weak back, dizzy spells  and black circles about the eyes, are only  symptoms.

On  the contrary, he declares his conviction that a glorious ending to these  heroic- and splendid efforts is not far  distant. We hope these words will be  taken as more than conventional  rhetoric of a farewell message. They  remind us of an aspect of the war  which is forgotten by the impatient  spectator who has got into the habit  of talking and thinking as if the war  in'the west were an interminable waiting in trenches with no prospect of  conclusion or solution. It is, on the  contrary, a prolonged and unceasing  struggle in which two vast armies  are perpetually at grips, in which for  many months the allies held on desperately against superior forces, in  which for many months more they  struggled for equality, and are now at  length struggling l'or ascendency. It  is a war in which the occasional battles are on a bigger scale than the  greatest recorded in history, a war  which needs unceasing vigilance and  prolonged preparation for every movement.

There was exceeding rage in  his voice as he spoke from his kneeling posture beside the body, to which  he   had   hurried   after   the   summons  to his aids.

To Prevent Young Men From Emigrating to the Colonies  Andrew Bonar Law, secretary for  the colonies, speaking at the London  school of economics, discussed the  problems that will arise after the  war, referring particularly to agriculture, lie declared that it was necessary for England to adopt a broad programme, of agricultural development  to prevent a too great number of men  emigrating to the colonies.  "The government engaged in carrying on the war," said the Unionist  leader, "has no easy task, but tho  government which shoulders the duty  of reconstruction after the war will  have work no less difficult. The war  has shown, us that agriculture is  still the most, important, of all our  industries and in the British Isles  wc must have healthy agriculture.  "After ihe war large numbers of  soldiers will not be willing to go  back to tame industrial life. We  know how imoprlaiit. is the strength  of lite imperial colonies, and we wish  to see them grow in population with  men of our own raeo and ideals, but  Ave don't want to see the best, nnd  most vigorous of our people leaving  these shore;' even for tho colonics.  For that reason if is essential lo  make real efforts lo place agriculture  here on au attractive and prolkable  basis."  are laboring to s*upply their needs. "We  get a superficial idea of apathy and  weariness when the reality is incessant fighting, unrelaxed strain, feverish activity of attack, defence and preparation. The belief that it is fruitless and endless is an illusion of the  civilian. The soldiers know by a thousand unrecorded signs that they are  moving, little by litt.le, to a conclusion  in which one army will prove definitely stronger than the other, and the  weaker be obliged to evacuate its positions. They know that there is no  other way than that of the "indomitable spirit and dogged tenacity which  knows no defeat," and though the war  ���������is long and weary aud dangerous, it  is not from them that we get the cries  of impatience or dissatisfaction, the  demand for new and sensational methods to cheer the public with announcements of victories on newspaper posters.���������Westminster Gazette.

It cost  iho government only the comparatively trilling sum oi: ton million dollars,  wherefor millions ol' British troops  were transported lo all parts of tlio  country, while the regular passenger  service scarcely showed any nigns of  the outbreak of war.  All tho railroads aro uiu I or government control, and arc worked by a  <:i>ninilU--t> of managers, payment being calculated according' to lho difference between the net reeoiplH .if  lfll!l and the receipts during wartime. Consiilcring that .some of the  railroads carried occasionally liny  troop trains In one day, us woll ;ui  supplying innumerable trains for military supplies and material, the cost  to the government, is amazingly  ftninll.
