 Vol. VIII.  CRESTON, B. C, FRIDAY, JUNE 9, 1916  JNO. Zl  Send-off is Given  Pte. W. E. Stisnson  W. E. Stimson, who has been working at the Creston Hotel for the past  nine months, and who is the first  Creston recruit for the 211th (American Legion) Battalion, was guest of  honor at a citizens' sendoff at the  Armory on Thursday night. Although  the affair was arranged on none too  much notice there was a fairly large  and representative gathering in  attendance.  In hisown inimitable fashion R, S.  Beyan acted as master of ceremonies,  and in a few opening remarks paid a  neat tribute to Mr. Stimson, who is  the first of our American citizens to  respond to the Allies call for men to  put down Prussian militarism for all  time to come.  Rev. R. E. Pow spoke, at some  length on various aspects of the war*,  pointing out that much as we all deplore the awful sacrifice of human life  and property the conflict was entailing there was no evading our responsibility in the matter.. Britain is  fighting for all that is best and noblest  in the world's national life and as part  of the empire Canada is in duty and  honor bound to give her full quota in  men and means to see the struggle  an informal afternoon reception on  Thursday last in honor of her neice,  Miss Fuller of Thedford, Ont., who is  her guest at present. Quite a number  from town were in attendance and  thoroughly enjoyed Mrs. Watcher's  well-known hospitality.  Dick Smith and Tom Midford sampled the fishing at Arrow Creek on Sunday and report a not too bad catch of  trout, for this early in a late season.  The lumber is coming in this week  for a commodious new verandah. J.  Webster is going to erect to his  residence here.  Misses Alice Carr, Bertha Pease and  Mary Barraclough and Messrs. E.  Pease and W. Barraclough were at  Wynndel foi* the leap year ball on  Saturday night. Miss Barraclough  assisted with the music, her several  violin numbers helping out the  orchestra spiendidiy.  Lest we forget, Mr. Editor, don't  you think Alice Siding's 1916 record of  four weddings since the new year, and  two of them in one day, will stand a  long time before being equalled even  by Duck Cr���������; beg pardon, Wynndel?  Pte, Pi Butterfield  tiles of  m*\T pma 1_  vv oiinas  xl X.  llUVUgli  to St, triiiETipijiiut  Sirdar  Deeply regret inform you 430274  Private Philip Butterfield, infantry,  died of wounds at No. 4 casualty clearing house station, on May 31, from  gunshot wounds iri head.  The  above   sad  intelligence   came  over the wire yesterday to Mr. and  Mrs. E. Butterfield of Wynndel.    Pte,  Butterfield, as  Review readers will  readily reeall, was one of the five recruits that   Wynndel contribute.!  to  the 48tn Battalion,  leaving  hei*e   in  February   of  1915,   for    training   at  Victoria, and going overseas about a  year- ago now.   Deceaseu. nad  been sn  the fighting   "somewhere in France"  since about December and had   taken  the usual rounds in the trenches without mishap until; the latter part of  April,   when   a   wire   came thi-ough  stating he had been   wounded, since  which time letters have been   infrequent,, though nothing had ever passed to create the impression  that his  wounds were likely to proye fatal,   all  of which tended to make yesterday's  message the harder to bear.  The late   Pte.   Butterfield   was   27  years of age, a native of London, Eng-  C.P.R., with a yiew to having it fixed  so as to allow the fish to ascend the  creek. He gave no definite statement  as to what his report would be, but  intimated that he would advise the  department to send an engineer to  lock at the culvert.  The genuine sympathy of the Valley  will go out to Mr. and Mrs. E. Butterfield and family who yesterday morning were advised by wire of the death  of their son Pte. Philip Butterfield,  who was reported wounded some  weeks ago.  As the attendance at "Wynndel  school, in common with other schools  in the vicinity falls off during the  latter part of June the final examinations were held on Monday and Tuesday of this week, with the following  results:  Junior 4th���������Merle Bathie 71.  Junior 3rd���������James E. Wilcox 76,  Borghild Hagen 74, Jack Penson 67,  Nrue Andestad 58, Oscar Of ner 53,  Arthur Cooper 52.  Junior 2nd���������Nora Hagen 76, Loreen  Williams 65, Olga Hagen 63, Charlie  Penson 54.  Senior 1st���������Irene Huscroft 70, Einar  Andestad 66, Agnes Hagen 56.  Messrs. Hayes and Masterton also  spoke along similar lines, the former  pointing out that if the call for recruits was not more liberally responded to Canada would shortly be forced  to resort to conscription in order to  make good her promise to enroll half-  tniliion men pledged for 1916. Mr.  Masterton paid his respects to*, the  guest of honor; he had found him a  splendid type of citizen during" his  stay in Creston and he was confident  he would do his bit and then some  when he got into the fighting overseas.  Mr. Stimson was presented with a  pipe, pouch and supply of tobbacco,  and in thanking the gathering for  their much appreciated remembrance,  as well as the sentiments expressed  and those that prompted the reception, assured that he would endeavor  to live up to the good opinions Creston held of him under all circumstances.  Good music for the affair was supplied by the Creston band, which was  out in full force, and the gathering  closed with auld lang syne and three I  Mrs. T. Aspay was a Creston caller  on Friday.  F. Topham and T. F. Brown of  Cranbi'ook were in Sirdar on Monday.  J. S. Deschamps, Nelson, paid us his  usual weekly visit on Tuesday.  Messrs. Ike Lewis. John Williams  and William Barber were Sirdar callers this week.  Walter Muir, the veteran Sirdar-  prospector, returned to his old stampings-grounds last week; His property  is located on the upper reaches of Falls  Creek, where he will be doing assessment work for the next two or three  months.  R. E. Gallant, switchman at this  point, sustained injm-ies to his wrist  last Saturdap as a result of falling off  a car. His injured wing was immediately attended to by Dr. Henderson.  Canyon City  Three cows belonging to the Indians  were killed by falling trees on the  Yale, during the high winds on the  29th.  land, who, on coming to Canada, first  located in the Columbia Valley, where  \y> x'stnained until 1914 when he came  on to Wynndel,- where he resided with  his parents - until enlisting early in  1915. While in the Old Country, and  also for a time iii B.C., he followed  the trade of motor chaffeur.  Deceased's personal popularity and  sterling worth as a citizen is too  favorably known to require any  elaboration at our hands. To these  qualities must be added his. readiness  to serve'bis* conn'ti^:.m,.iXT$e\of stress  and finally to make the -supreme  sacrifice. Greater tribute can be paid  to no man than to record that he laid  down his life for his friends.  Words fail in ������an effort to extend  the genuine sympathy that-- to-day  goes ont to Mr. and Mrs. Butterfield  and members of the family in their  great hei*eavement, particularly when  it is borne in mind that three other-  sons of this family are also at the  front, and one other already previously mentioned in the casualty lists ns  slightly wounded.

Fred Nelson returned from Yahk  one day hist week where he had been  employed as section foreman, while  C. Nelson was out with an extra gang.  Cupid Makes Fine  Early June Start  A very pretty house wedding  was  that of Wednesday at the home of Mr.  and   Mrs.   A.  W. Mason, when  their  daughter, Gladys Victoria, was united  in   marriage   with   Mr.    Walter    J.  Cooper of Wynndel, Rev. R.   E. Pow  officiating.    The bride was handsomely gowned in white satin with shadow  lace  trimmings,  carrying a   bouquet  of white lilacs, and was attended   by-  Miss Anna Hagen  of Wynndel,  who  had a stylish  costume of cream silk.  The best man   was Mr. T. Butterfield,  also of Wynndel.    After the ceremony  a   sumptuous   wedding   dinner    was  served, and the evening a host of the  young-people friends of both the bride  and groom gathered for a reception  which took the form of adance, which  was kept up until well into the morning, also a few   musical numbers,  Mr.  Mason contributing a couple of Scotch  songs   in   his  usual good style.   -Mr,  and Mrs. Cooper will make their home  at   Wynndel.   of   which   section   the  groom is one of the foremost ranchers,  and their many friends will join  with  The Revihw in extending  heartiest  congratulations and best wishes   for a  long and happy wedded life in   the  Creston Valley,  The residence of E.   C.  Gibbs   was  the scene of a very quiet  wedding on  Wednesday   night,  when  his sister,  Miss Gertrude E-., eldest daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Charles R. Gibbs, Bournemouth,   England,  and   Mr.   Fred   W.  j Ash wtre united. in  holy  matrimony  by Rev. J. S: Mahood, rector of Christ  Church.    The couple were unattended  the bride wearing blue crepe de chene  with hat to match.    After the ceremony the guests, which included only  the intimate friends of the  contracting parties, sat -down to the wedding  supper, and after the usual  congratulations they left for their home on the  groom's   ranch, just  west   of   town.  Both the bride   and  groom   are well-  known residents of Creston, and their  numerous friends will wish them long  life and a happy one.  cheers and a tiger for Mr.  Stimson,      Most ranchers know what Oathay  who left on Friday for Vancouver to  go into training.  /Slice Siding  Tuesday morning's frost appears to  have done some damage to tomato  plants, especially, on the ranches in  the K.V. neighborhood.  Miss Mary Barraclough arrived  from Calgary on Saturday and will  spend several wesks with hor parents  here.  The Soldieis Ladies' Aid is credited  with $3.40 in cash and four pairs socks  in this week's Red Cross budget���������the  output of the Douglas Villa meeting  last week. The next gathering is at  Mrs. Compton'8 on the 14th.  Two weddings of Alice Siding re-  Hidunts this week brings onr matrimonial record for the year up to four  -���������all thoro has been in the Valloy.  Cupid has been very busy with the  woi*kmen on the McMurtrie residence,  two of tho benedicts having been employed there of late.  Miss F. Bathie and Messrs, E. Uri  and Carl Carlson of Wynndel were  decorating the scenery in fchoHi* parts  on Sunday, guests of Mr. and Mrs.  PeaBo.  With the approach of high water  the festive mosquito is beginning to  invade the higher i-pots tho first of him  being reported on duty Tuesday.

The way C. Blair is adding cattle to  his already large herd of beefers, Pat  Burns, the cattle king, is due to lose  his well-known title.  Not counting the Deer Lodge country at all, thore is at least 225 acres in  clover in this section this year.  The pushing a.way of Mr. MnKim  takes away one of tho oldest pioneers  in the Canyon City district. Ho was  70 years of age and had rosidod hero  almost twenty years.  Harry White returned from Nelson  last week, where he hiul boon filling a  position In the Deschamps sawmill for  a few days.  Still no word has ho.on recoivod of  John Wood of thu frith Battalion,  who was reported missing ovor ji  month ago.  Judging by tho reports that a certain organization schemed to eliminate  G. M. Benney before his time was  due causes on to believe that a branch  of the Potsdam lie factory exists in  the Valley.  Geo. Leach has a small gang of men  repairing a fow bail places down below  Stoncy Point.  Latest reports from Potsdam is that  the MacKay bridge in being built for  ���������.lection purposes. But, in spite of all  these reports the enemy haa failed to  create iliuuonsion, except in their own  ranks.  While it is almost certain that the  demise is that of Pte. Philip Butterfield, it is curious that the number  given is that of Pte. Douglas Butterfield. He was also wounded some  time ago, though last word from him  stated that he was out of the hospital  and recuperating in a rest sanitarium  somewhere in Kent.

British Columbia holds the record  for sending- proportionately more  men to the allied armies than any  other division of the empire of Great  Britain. In one month 2,200 men  came up the Fraser river from  points on the old Cariboo Trail to  join the regiment there. Wallachin,  a town on the trail sent forty-seven  men to the front out of sixty-seven  eligible citizens of the town. Vancouver sent 10,000 men out. of its  population of 110,000. Prince Rupert  went over this ratio. Every settlement in British Columbia has its  soldier in the ranks.  Sow   It  After  Wheat   is   in,   on  Fields and New Breaking  Records show that in the three  prairie provinces the average flax crop  exceeds 1.2 bushels per acre. As you  know, the average price for several  months past has been around $2 a  bushel, and if war conditions continue  the 191t> crop will probably bring in  even more.  Unlike the other grain crops, flax  can b������ sown as late as the first week  in June, and it does well on wet, late  laud and on new breaking, where you  cannot make other grains pay at all.  This $20 to $30 an acre from late  sown and otherwise unproductive land  is like found money, and is certainly  worth going after. As the possibilities  of flax become better known more and  more farmers will be sure to take it  up, but those who do so this season  will get the top of the market, and  probably  make  the biggest profits.  In a recent article on the subject,  J. H. Drisdale, B.Agr., director Dominion  experimental  farm,  says:  ���������'For the new settler or the man  with new breaking done before May  25 or 26, flax offers an opportunity for  money-making this year on this land  such as is not possible with any other  crop."

Of his failure to provide facilities  for  the  satisfactory   obtaining  of  justice enough has been said.   Last  The Benney Incident  More   than   a   few   have  quite   audibly     wondering  where we like to imagine we have  government of the peeple by the  people for the people incidents such  these, all of them absolutely unex-  cusable and creating inconveniences,  are just a little more apt to be  taken as a resection of how provincial business as a whrle is being  attended to than gentlemen higher  up are wont to imagine. However,  now thai we have a resident  government candidate we can, at  least, hope for better things.  shak-  get  Where it Pinches  While other parts of   the Valley  may   be   disinterestedly   awaiting  week we had another  example  of I the final curtain in this road super-  been  what  The Review thinks of the resolution for and the petition against  G. M. Benney'a removal, with all  the attendant hubub, and we have  no hesitation in saying that both,  moves were out of order.  Technically speaking, Mr. Young  is correct in his contention that tho  resolution asking that Mr. Fingland  lie at once placed in charge in no  way reflects on Mr. Benney. The  Redistribution Act clearly provides for the change prayed fur 'tia  true, but the skeptical want to  know why then this rather  gratuitous* bit of "What's your  hurry; hire's your hat," Mr.  Benney, sort of business, don't you  know.

With   the  result that parties coming here   to  renew   their   miners'   licenses   on  May 31st, as is customary, suddenly found there was no official of the  sort here ane more than   one  was  put to the trouble  of telegraphing  Nelson to keep themselves good  on  the mining recorder's books.  Ministers responsible i'or this  laxity in safeguarding the public  interests may consider inattention  to these (to them only) minor  routine matters of little consequence bnt tho gonoral public may  size things up otherwise, particularly with an administration that has  on occasion boen found guilty of  similar lapses on very much moro  important matters.  Some more evidence of what  appears to bo something flavoring  of almost studied indifferonoo appears in this issue. We refer to  tho article dealing with womon's  institute work. Thinking, doubtless, to get somotping brand now to  [ stimulate enthusiasm in institute  work the bulk:-, wrote the agriculture department for tho facts and  HguroH wherewith to construct u  readable paper and they aro favored with an article written two  yearn ago, dealing with matters  that transpiron three yearn back.  ThiH, of course, in a minor concern  but, Htill, it goon to show a lack of  true appreciation of tho real service,  the department can and Hhould  render    even     in     these-    smaller  ������ ri., ' I J'l-M  In a hunt ling went������Tii community  in tendency comedy, down at Wynndel the incident takes on very much  more of the aspect of a tragedy.  Some months ago, after the  appropriations had been finally  decided upon for road improvements in this part of Ymir, the  urgency of opening at least a trail  from the main road into the Penson  and Walter Cooper rrnches, as well  as the necessity of improvements to  tho bridge which leads down to the  flats, was so thoroughly impressed  on Mr. Benney that he gave assurance that ol though no money had  been specifically sot aside for this  particular work, the great necessity  for it was so apparent that he woud  curtail expenditure in other directions in orher to have some $200  available���������this amount being considered sufficient for tho purpose.  Now comes this resolution of the  Kaslo convention asking that Mr.  Fingland tako charge here and,  naturally, Mr. Benney is reticent  to go ahead with work for whioh  no specific appropriation is mado  until ho knows whether he is to  romain in charge hero. And ovory  day the work if? delayed tho more  aggravated the situation becomes,  because tho strrwhorry season is  almost upon uh. and these improve  ments aro vitally important to the  successful marketing not only of  tho berries of tho individuals  interested but, indirectly, tho  produce of every shipper through  tho Wynndel selling agency.  'Unless tho Cooper-Penson road  is opened tho ranchers iu that part  will have to get, their berries out to  the main road by wheelbarrow over  rather rough wheeling. While  those forced to haul thorn over Poo.  assuredly give the berries  ing up that will not  tend  to  them on  the  market  in  the best  possible shape.  On both counts several thousand  crates of berries are due to suffer  severe damage, and the presence of  even a few crates of this damaged  fruit is very liable to lower the  standard of all the perfect berries  that go out in the same shipment, thus doing many an injustice  for the unavoidable plight of the  few���������said plight being manifestly  due to a bit of resoluting that was  neither good business politically or  commercially seemingly.  We believe the matter is being  pressed with both Mr. Benney and  the minister interested and in stich  an emergency it is to be hoped  immediate and favorable consideration will be given.  Ad (J moid OfiCHIV UT  uo  Unkind!   Unkind I  Kaslo Kootenaian, June 1st:  Some  of    the    Grits,    with    characteristic:  meanness,  are saying unkind  things  about the recent convention of Kaslo  riding   Conservatives.    For instance,  they claim  that those   who attended  the  convention   in   the   capacity   of  delegates   were and  have been to a  large extent in  the government employ, a road boss here and there, the  next one a tire warden,   or  a   civil  service employee, and   so on.    It   is  further   claimed   that   the candidate  selected, Robert J. Long,  of Creston,  is himself in the employ of the administration, being a fire  warden at  the   south end of the riding.    It is  further alleged that machine methods  prevailed throughout the convention,  and that the whole thing was cut and  dried in advance.

Price Ellison, Minister of  Finance and Agriculture for British  Columbia, feeling the desirability of  assisting the women of the rural districts to co-operate along the lines of  Farmers Instates, sent- out demonstrators in dairywork and domestic  science during 1909 with the regular  lecturers for the Farmer's Instutes.  They were instructed by the depart-  meet to organise Women's Instutes  wherever the way opened, and at the  close of 1909 by the efforts of Miss  Laura Rose, among others, there  were 18 Institutes formed from Sooke  on the west coast of Vancouver to  Cranbrook in the Rocky Mountains.  The Institutes as yet had no legal  status, therebeing no Act dealing with  such associations, but they were  among the first matters to receive  attention when Mr. W. E. Scott took  the office of deputy minister of agriculture and became superintendent of  institutes, by provision being made in  the Ac*Ticuitnra! Associations Act  1911, for the formation of such bodies;  this also legalized all those Institutes  in operation prior to the formation of  the Act.  In 1910 although the number of  Institutes had increased to 22 with a  membership of 780 the aims and objects of the Institute work were still  imperfectly understood and little progress was being made.  In August, 1911, the minister of  agriculture called together four ladies  from each of the chief geographical  districts of the province where Institute work was undertaken, to act as  an Advisory Board of Institutes, to  confer with and advise the department on the work of Institutes, and  also to carry out the wishes of the  department in these matters as directed. Their chief function being to  organize, to visit, to plan lectures and  courses of instruction, receive reports,  transmit information and generally  direct the work of the Institutes.  * Since the appointment of the board  22 Institutes have been organized  Whilst lecturers on First Aid, Home  Nursing, Dietetics, Sanitation, Horticulture and Poultry Keeping and  Demonstrators in "Doniest c Cookery  and Dressmaking have been sent  round to th������ Institutes. The board  has also edited three bulletins giving  full reports of the Institute work of  the province and being in close touch  with Institutes it is able to give considerable information and assistance  to the department.  In the fall of 1913, expert instructors  in cookery and dressmaking commenced fortnightly series of lessons  with each Institute, these have proved of great interest and benefit and  haye been the means of bringing in  many new members. The demonstrators fees and travelling expenses  are paid by the department. The only  expense to the Institstes being possibly the rent for the place of meeting.  Miss Bessie Livingstone, of the  Boston School of Cooking, conducted  classes among 16 of the Institutes, the  total attendance being 3325. Her  demonstration-lectures continued 10  days at each place and comprised the  following subjects: Value of Water  and Fruits, Milk, Eggs, etc., Fish,  Meats, Vegetables and Salads, Cereals,  Soft Doughs and Battels, Cakes and  Icings, Bread, Pastry  Tho aim throughout was, not to  teach fancy cooking but plain -serviceable dishes, giving basic receipes which  are capable of variation, and also to  combine with demonstrations the importance of the study of foods and  nutrition for every-day living.

Petain appears to be a man not  given to making friends, somewhat  gruff and reserved in his manner, and  this may expain the fact that when  the war began he was a mere colonel  who had almost definitely renounced  all hope of ever climbing any higher  in the service. The war, however,  gave him his opportunity, and he has  risen  like  a rocket.  Petain's name now rings through  France and is famous throughout the  world, and yet it is only a month since  his name appeared for the first time  in   the genei*a.l news columns of   the  A   *fk ^T j4W*W*tj0$*  ..... ...JANCfiS  ikKERS NEW C  THE RESULTS OF WA  POST BELLUM  PERIOD  IS TO  BE A WOMAN'S ERA  During the past few weeks there  have been certain rumors that the  navy, owing to want of foresight in  a lack of driving force in the board  of admiralty, was not in so positive  a position of superiority as had  been supposed. Some naval "experts," who may, we think, be acquitted of any desh*e wantonly to  undermine confidence in the navy,  Beem to have been infected by the  disease of "cold feet." Thus because  who were never before inclined to  ���������waver in their trust in the board  cf admiralty have been tempted, or  at all events invited, recently to  wonder  whether all   was   going well.  Something*  more  than  vague   misgivings     has     been     disseminated���������not  widely,     it  is  true,   but  in   a  rather  lurid -i'orm.    We have been told that  German   dreadnoughts' carrying  guns  which  would  outrange  even those of  the   "Queen    Elizabeth,"   would  soon  burst    forth    from    the   Kiel   Canal.  Men who are readily awed by rumor  talked of these  ships  by  name. One  cf them  was   the  "Hindenburg."  "Se  non e vero e ben trovato!"    It was  therefore time  that  the  bogies  were  knocked over the head, and this extremely useful and salutary act was  performed    by   Mr.   Balfour    in    his  admirable   speeches   in   the   house   of  commons.    He did not boast;  he did  not pretend that surprises are impossible;     but  he   did  offer  an  account  of his stewardship,   'which   ought  to  convince   and     reassure   every   man  who   can  keep  his    mind   free   from  panic.    We have read a great many  speeches    on    the navy.    We    have  never   read   speeches   which   seemed  to us to be  in a righter spirit than  those of Mr.  Balfour.    They contained  an  explicit  guarantee  that everything   i������?   being     done   which   an   intelligent wide-awake,    and    energetic  board  ought to do.    More  than that  we cannot ask.  It is very easy for a newspaper to  invent its own particular bogy, or,  let us say, to believe in a particular  bogy on the strength of some slender but attractive evidence, and then  to say: "Here is this appalling  danger. We are only performing a  public duty in demanding to know*  what steps, if any, the admiralty are  taking to meet this particular challenge. Mr. Balfour very rightly did  not attempt to deal with the x bogy,  the y bogy, and the z bogy in detatil.  In his review of the situation he  simply assured us, in effect, that  the navy was being made as strong  as possible, and as well prepared as  naval ingenuity can devise, to meet  all conceivable risks. He must have  convinced all those who needed to  be convinced and were open to conviction, that if the navy cannot be  said actually to command success,  there never was a time when it more  thoroughly deserved success. Let us  quote Mr. Balfour's words as to the  condition of the fleets:  They are much stronger than thy  were six months ago.  They are still  stronger    than    they     were   twelve  months  ago,    and  their  excess  over  what we possessed    nineteen months  ago  is  still greater.    In  every  class  of  ship, big  and  little  ships  designed    to  meet  on  equal    or  superior  terms   the   German   high   seas   fleet,  -Auxiliary    ships,    patrol    Bhips, antisubmarine   ships,   Vsht   cruisers,   destroyers,  flotilla  leader?,   submarines,  every    kind    of    ship   available    In  modern war, we havo increased, and  largely increased,    since the war began.    Well, then, let us dismiss vain  nnd  empty  fears.    As  I  asld  yesterday,   war  is   necessarily  and   always  an uncertain game.    It may be true,  nnd lt is true, that maritime warfare  under modern conditions and against  the    now  form of attack  constituted  by  submarines,    iiircvaft  and    mines  Is   a moro    uncertain   game  than   it  wan   in   the   good   old   days   vhon   it |  wan  iiioit-dy    ji  i'lie-illun  of codiiLliiii  your "seventy-four"    battk'sliipr*   and  your thirty-six-gun   frigate*    and    the  rest.    Therefore  I  repent again   that  I will make no boast  about tho Hrlt-  lnh  admiralty.    I   will  not.  guarantee  II. against,    misfortuno  or    accidents.

Another very interesting point  was his answer to the rumor that  yards were not being used to the  best purpose. We have all heard of  the contractor who remarks: "It  is all very well for the admiralty  to say that tliey are building ships  as fast as they can, but here is a  slip in my yard standing idle. What  have they got to say about that? Mr.  Balfour's answer is that he has investigated many such cases, and  they are all capable of the same explanation. The contractor means  either that he can produce more  ships if only the admiralty will give  him the particular orders which at  the moment he can carry out. But  it is, of course, the business of the  admiralty to get exactly the ships  they want, not to order what they  do not need at a particular time.  And as for the labor, the admiralty  would naturally supply it if they  had it. The contractor's complaint  merely brings us back to the notorious labor question. Yet there are  many doubting souls who msijudge  many doubting souls who misjudge  than that they have been told by  a friend who knows a contractor  and who was told by the contractor  himself, so that there could be no  mistake, etc., etc.  We have intentionally not dealt  in this article with Mr. Balfour's  crushing rejoinder to Colonel Churchill so far as it was a personal in-  Sabre like hussar harks back to  the Hungarians for its genesis in the  word szabya. a curved sword, bringing both name and weapon into Europe from the Orient, somewhere late  in the eighteenth century. The worn  comes from the Greek szabos, which  meant crooked.  dief.ment. But one point is so germane to our subject of the state of  the navy that, it must be mentioned.  The charge that the government  were not sufficiently pressing on the  construction of dreadnoughts was  actually made by Colonel Churchill,  who had himself delayed the fitting  out of new dreadnought by taking  away their guns for monitors. In  taking the guns he may have been  right, but the charge in these circumstances took an extraordinary  impudent form, as he compared the  rapidity with which the monitors  were prepared for sea when he was  first lord with the slowness with  which the. present board is supposed to be making ready their gun-  denuded dreadnoughts. Moreover,  "bustle, hurry and push," as Mr.  Balfour said, may often prove to  be the slowest method in the end,  as has been shown by the need to  of the types built unchurch ill's     slashing  French Writer Believes That Woman's Sphere in General Will  Be Greatly Enlarged in the Years Following  Immediately After the War  French papers, though it had figured  remodel some  der Colonel  "regime."  The spirit of the navy is unquenchable. It is equal to all its  tasks, and while it is not dismayed by anything Germany may have  in preparation, it is the part of self-  respecting landsmen not to be alarmed by bogios. Wars, it is true, are  a history of surprises. But at least  we may say with confidence that  as far as the admiralty can provide against surprises they are do-  itiK so.���������London  Spectator.

But when  president Poincare went down to Verdun,    after the battle had raged for a  week, to congratulate the army there,  it     was officially announced  that he  had been  received   by General joffre  and General Petain.    Then the world  knew for the first  time who  was  in  charge of the French armies at Verdun.   It is true that the Petit Journal  published a snapshot of Petain in one  edition,   but   it   merely   labelled   him  "The General," the censorship not permitting the name to be published. Before that time there had been considerable gossip in the army that Petain  was to be the successor of Joffre in  command   of   all   the   armies   of   the  North and  East,  and at that time  a  Paris newspaper is supposed to have  printed   a   sketch     of     Petain.     The  French correspondent of the Brooklyn  Eagle has  searched the  fyles  of the  paper for the sketch, but reports that  if it ever appeared it must have been  suppressed by the censorship, for it is  not now*   to  be  had.  Petain was soon famous in the army  of course, and whenever there was  particularly hard and bloody work to  be done it was expected that Petain  would be there. Among the very few-  little stories that are floating around  about him is one to the effect that on  one occasion he asked for and received permission from Joffre to have one  of his divisions relieved from trench  duty, fie desired to keep the men  fresh for storming. The soldiers in  this division were not a little proud  of the honor, and when one of Them  was being reproached for recklessly  spending his money, he replied,  "What's the odds? I'm one of Pe-  tain's men, anyway'.'" thus intimating  that since his life might be expected  to be short, he intended to make it as  merry as possible.  It   Avas Petain   who led the charges  north of Arras last spring, and it was  Petain    again    who prepared  the offensive in    the  Champagne  last  fall,  and  as soon  as    the French  general  staff realized    that    the attack upon  Verdun was no feint, but a desperate  and  savage    attempt of the Gorman  army     to  seiza  this  fortress,  Petain  was  sent  to  take  charge  of  the   defence.    He had no sooner taken hold  than  there  rose  an  outcry  from  his  chauffeurs.     ITe   wore   out   fourteen  of them  in a few weeks and his de-  maud for speed made even some professional  racing mon turn pale when  ordered   out  to   drive  him   from   one  position to another behind the  lines.  Genc-ral  Petain   ib  said   to be  an  enthusiast on the matter or physical fitness, and though CO years of nge, he  is as nimble on his feet as the youngest Zouave and as hard-bitten a campaigner as is to be found in the army.  Not long ago, when a  certain  officer  asked to  be  put. on his staff,  Petain  replied:   "What I need in the way of  staff officers  are  some  first-class   bt-  cyclo   riders   and   a    few     cahmpion  cycle    riders    and    n   few champion  Ilenrl   Philippo Pidain  wan bom in  Cauchy-la-Tour,  in  the* Pas  do  Calais  Department,    on   April   2-1.  1S5C,  and  entered   the   St.   C'yr   training   school  at the age ot 20.    Tt took him twelve  years to work  up to a onpluincy and  another    twenty   years to become    a  colonel.     llo   served   In   different   infantry  brigades,  and  then  became a  teacher  of military    tactics    In    the  Higher    War College.

It is the  diminution of the adult male population in Europe. A loss of eight to  ten million men in the ages between  18 and 45 years certainly constitutes  an element which is liable to cause a  great change in the European nations.  "Mr. Arthur Girault, a professor at  the University of Poitiers, has given  a searching consideration to the question and has come to the decision that  the disturbed equilibrium in the numerical proportion between the sexes  will cause a situation of a revolutionary character as far as social conditions are concerned.  "It will  be  the  women's  era   after  the  war, for they are naturally those  who will 'benefit' by the disproportion  of the sexes.    'Benefit' is only a mode  of speech, for one likes to believe that !  the majority of women are not so set i  on  feminine emancipation that  for a J  few 'rights' by which they could gain j  only mediocre advantages they would 1  fulfil their new mission. Until the-  middle of this century, when the number of adult males will exceed that of  men of advanced years, the women  will be a powerful social factor. It  rests with them to demonstrate that  the  world  will be the  better for it."  The Value of  Cold Storage  A Comprehensive Booklet Issued Dealing   With   This   Subject  Cold storage promises as the years  pass to have a greater and greater  effect on the cost of living.

"So much for what may be termed  the  sentimental  side    of  the  matter.  Then there is the social phase, which  is of still greater importance.
