Array mam  Y^b-^ m."������T  INT KVlKwy  Vol. VIII.  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, JUNE 16, 1916  No. 22  M  ^orma! C  i^rop and  ge Prices  undertaking it has been done in  good  time���������and  if Jim Johnson   was   not  W. E. McTaggart, the B.C. prairie  fruit markets commissioner, was a  visitor here and at Wynndel on Tuesday aud "Wednesday. He has just  completed a trip over the fruit areas  of the province that depend on the  prairie markets largely for the disposal  of their output, and has also spent a  few days at Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, and Calgary, returning to the  latter point yesterday to open his  office for the 1918 campaign.  Mr. McTaggart has only been in tiie  work Since late last Se*^tenib*^i* a:id  consequently, was not in a position to  make any accurate comparison as to  the marketing outlook as compared  with this month last year. However,  from aii the information he could  glean in a general way he was quite  optimistic that giyen normal conditions at both the growing and buying  centres there was every reason to hope  prices; would average up well with  1915.   ���������       ��������� .  He  figures   the   demand   for   B.C.  berries this year will be   well  up to  that of a year ago. The most authentic  information available is to  the effect  that there  will be 30 per cent,  less  beTries coming into the   prairies from  the  American   side,   due to a . very  light crop at some well-known centres.  The only adverse condition  so far in  evidence is the  high-price of   sugar,  which circumstance wiii be overcome  to a degree by   the circulation   of the  "BiC.   Fruit  Booklet"    which points  out a very effective method of preserving   without   the   use   of   sugar.  Another encouraging feature  of   the  prairie   market,   especially   for    soft  fruits, is that in every section,  other  than the bigger cities, money is quite  plentiful with, all classes, which should,  ensure a good healthy demand for the  soft fruits at least.    The Information  to hand leads to the conclusion that  the B.C. growers will market at least  15 or 20 pei-   cent, more  berries  than  last year.    The increase in the Creston  Valley particularly being a revel.ition  to the  visitor.    At   no   point   in his  travels   had  he found so healthy   a  showing of young fruit.  Reports indicate that 1916 will  be  rather a light year for  B.C.   in  sweet  cherries and   also   for   plums,    Sour  cherries will be  heavy and  from   appearances   pears  will  be strong.    Of  apples   it   is   a bit early to   do  any  prophesying, though according to Mr.  McTaggart   if   even   the rosiest   predictions from most points are realized  the total yield will not   be very  much  in  advance of   1915.    Reports    from  across the line as to   apple  conditions  were pretty much the same as tin** soft,  fruits.    The   product   of   the   Northwestern States as  a   whole   is  lighter  than last year,   consequently   the export into Canada should of necessity  be lighter, and particularly when   the  added duty of  10 cents a box   net   is  taken into consideration.  Although Mr. McTaggart was too  shrewd to be led into displaying overmuch enthusiasm aa to the marketing  outlook he conceded the situation was  decidedly hopeful, and with tho well  organized Helling force of the O.U.G.  . deposing of the product the very best  roHults consistent with market, nie  iiHHiired.  ple<ased to pay him tribute   as an expert bridge builder.

Mr. Fletch* r has been here  on his first official visit and in  conversation with him -the impression was  left that government inspection would  coyer   all of these points and coyer  them   very   carefully.    Mr.   Fletcher,  we. understand, will be on the job aii  of the time for the remainder of the  season and we wish to make it clear to  all the ranchers that Union representatives at all points will be_ instructed  to assist in  every   way to  make  the  name Creston Fruit" Growers Union on  a fruit package stand for Quality,  In this connection, we would draw  every shippers attention to section 312  (c) of the fruit marks act which reads:  "No person shall sell, or otter, expose  or haye in his possession, for sale, any  fruit packed in any package in which  the faced or shown surface gives a  false representation of the contents of  such package, and it shall be considered a false representation when more  than 15% of such fruit is substantially  smaller in size than, or inferior in  grade to, or different in variety from,  the faced or shown surface of such  packing."  For the information of shippers from  outside sidings, who will be addressing their own packages, the Express  Company recommends that crates be  addressed on "botte ends (not on one.  end) and tin the top as has been the  custom. This protects our product to  the extent that there will be no re-  hand ing of the crates after they go  in the cars. In the old way when the  messenger chanced to turn the address  to the inside in piling them it meant  that in checking the whole pile had to  be taken down, and nothing pulls  down the condition of fruit like re-  handling.  Ranchers need to remember that no  crates will be given out in the busy  season from ten o'clock till after the  train leaves and this means thatcrat.es  will not be given out between these  hours, forvent prayers to the contrary  notwithstanding. The warehouse  doors will be locked at ten and not  reopened until afternoon. Any phone  orders received between seven and  nine in the morning will beset outside  at the request of the purchaser, but  will also be at his risk.

Daphne herself had perhaps an  inkling of this too, while she sat listening from her quiet corner to Sir  Penywern's marked efforts to ingratiate himself with the old vicar and his  wife. These efforts were entirely successful, and before the visitor left,  after quite a long call, she began to  he vaguely apprehensive that the old  happy days which she had described  to him, days without a care, were  drawing to a close  She would, hy and by, have to make  I up her mind, and although she had  j been enthusiastic irf her description  ; of the stranger when she thought she  i would never see him again, she felt  friends, and i more dread than exhilaration when  ! she heard the smiling comments of  ; Mr. and Mrs. Gellibrand upon him, and  his marked attention to .herself.  Indeed, Sir- Penywern proved no  laggard in love. Scholar, man of research he might he by choice; hut he  had heen by profession a. soldier, and  he showed something of the blunt determination of his father, the late baronet, when it came to wooing the girl  who had captured his heart.  Daphne was scared, and would have  refused him, or at least deferred the  moment of decision. But he would  not let her. And Mr. and' Mrs. Gellibrand, who were both growing old,  and who had indeed had many grave  talks ahout their adopted child's future, were not alow or backward in  urging his suit upon her.  So it came about that Sir Penywern,  who remained in the neighborhood all  tliat summer, got at least a somewhat  timid and reluctant consent from the  girl, and a promise that, she would  become his wife before the yoar was  out.  In the meantime, ho had. of course,  learnt the details 'of her short lire-  history.  The Gellihrandfi .nd made the acquaintance of Daphne when sho was  a child of six, travelling about England with lier mother, in the absence  abroad of Captain Silcott, Iter lather,  who waa in  the army,  Mrs. Silcott. had been staying at  tho vicarago witii her little daughter  when tho news came that hor husband was lying seriously ill in Paris,  and leaving hor child in the cam of  these friendr., she travelled to France  In  time  to soe hlni die.

But he  isolated corner, and with  to his plate, so that he  seemed to hypnotize his food, he soon  ate his way from soup to syrup, not.  neglecting a generous serving of halibut and roast veal.  Whilst his second cup ot strong coffee was cooling at his elbow���������he  drank this to steady his nerves for  pool���������he turned to the morning  paper, and scanned the war news. The  bloody battles of which he read, and  the noble sacrifices of brave men,  might have been enacted on the  planet Mars, for any appeal they made  to his slothful.soul. But, like a man  who lies in bed between warm blankets, listening with pleasure to the  storm that howls without, so loved he  to listen to the thunderous din of war,  as echoed through his daily paper,  what time he enjoyed the protection  of the greatest fleet that ever rode the  seas, and the most valiant armies that  ever trod the earth.  He laid down the sheet presently,  and turned his mind to his own narrow little stagj, on which he played  his life. The afternoon and evening  lay. before him like a long and pleasant road. How to extract the maximum of personal ease and pleasure  from the forthcoming hours���������no other  thought  possessed him.  He debated, as though it were a  question of vast importance, whether  he should play pool with Tom and  Dick, or divert himself at a matinee.

Searing its  way through a sulphurous inferno of  gunpowder smoke, the red sun had  dropped below the blotched horizon,  and left in its wake a pure trail of silver   stars.  In Hell Ditch, a short half-moon  shaped trench, marking the very limit of the British advance, and distant  not two hundred yards from the German lines, two companies of a Canadian battalion kept their guard. They  stood rigid as statues, their tunics  muddied and torn, resting on their  guns. Their eyes for lack of sleep���������  for this was the third day of their  watch���������were bright as any star in the  heavens; their faces were grey and  gaunt, reflecting a great patience  which months of endurance had  stamped there and a noble adherence  to  fluty.  They were waiting. The spirit or  an almost tragic expectancy brooded  over that trench. Until their eyes  ached and throbbed, the lookout' men  searcehd the. two hundred yards of  No Man's Land that lny between their  own glorified furrow, and that of the  enemy.  A crescent moon shed a Taint light  ���������a light that tricked tin- imagination,  and. peopled   lhe   intervening   ground  with   a   thousand   fantasies.     A   doad  Prussian that had stared all thut day  Into tho very face of the mm, seemed  suddenly lo move, to (urn on his .siilo,  and move, towards tho shadow of an  abandoned  machine  gun.    From  that  gash in the earth whore lay the  dark   forms   seemed   to   emerge  creep   forward.     Th������i   silcnc-o   ol  ru'cno,  po   sli-ii-ply   defined   by   lho  recent   bombardment,    seemed     loaded  with   suspense.

Imi   a   moment   later a   white  flame shono up from every .man's  rlllo, where the moon flashed along  his  tixed   bayonet.  What inspired these men that they  stood so resolute there, waiting unflinchingly tho word that would rush  them into the outstretched arms of  Dfiitir.'  They   had   seen    bleeding    Belgium  ami stricken France, and were glad to  s������ake.  their lives  to  the  last  drop  of  blood to defend from a like fate their  own   homes   in   the  great   West,   and  the   homes   of   their  kin   in   the   Old  Land.    They stood there to push back  the   bloody     tide   of- Savagery   that  threatened  to inundate the homes of  gentle-minded and God-fearing people,  j to  defend their women and children,  | and   to   hurl   down   the   gage,   in   the  j name   of   Canada,   against   the   most  i ruthless   and   unscrupulous     foe   that  j ever wielded the red sword and flam-  i ing torch  of war.  l *k        m1        *        fc  At the moment that these men had  { fixed   their   bayonets,     and   taken   a  jstiffer hold upon fheir guns, the Parasite  made  his  way towards  the  pool  rooms.  Outside the city hall, he suffered  a shock that filled his heart with a  sullen anger, and sent the blood rushing to his face until tbe veins that  crossed his forehead triangularly  stood out like a  brand.  Before him, barring his way, clothed in that ubiquitous khaki, stood a  recruiting sergeant, a man who seemed to take his duties most seriously,  to judge by the sharp scrutiny of his  keen grey eyes.  "Won't you come and give us a  hand, m'lad? There's room for  you."  The words, though spoken quietly  enough, seemed to the Parasite as a  lash across the face. A hundred times  a day, this khaki-crazy world asked  him this question, not by word of  mouth, but by wondering glances covertly directed at him by maid and  matron, and man, whose brothers and  sons had gone forth ready to sacri-  I Acs all to avenge the desolated  hearths of Belgium, and to defend  their own homes from the most consummate butcher that ever blackened  and blood-smeared the pages of history.  "Don't waste your time on me," he  muttered, and pushed his way past  the sergeant, with averted eyes.  Once again lie had denied his country.  * *        *        Jjc  Hell Ditch had become the fulcrum  of Hell incarnate. Here the whole  world seemed to rock and shake and  shatter, and the noises of a thousand  thunderstorms smote down upon the  trench, raining shrapnel. A furious  artillery duel was under way between  the British and the enemy's guns, in  addition to which two Prussian batteries concentrated their fire solely  upon Hell Ditch, the most threatening-  point in that sector of the British  lines. They had got the range to a  nicety���������for days past they had got  the range���������and their shells, breaking  over and behind the men, kicked back  their load of iron hail, and raked the  ditch from end to end.  Curious bundles lay about in the  bed of that entrenchment, twisted and  blood-stained, and before the bombardment was an hour old, nine, ten,  eleven, and twelve platoons, the reinforcements, filed up through Hazard  Avenue, a deep, sinuous gully, connecting Hell Ditch with the labyrinth  of trenches that lay behind. The  ranks were closed where men had  fallen, nnd C Company took up its  position..  They fixed bayonets.  And whilst Death himself stood over  them, and  lashed thorn  down  with a  flail of steel, these men did not flinch.  They were soldiers.    Months of hardships, or uncomplaining endurance of  o.vei'y  kind  of peril,    of    unswerving  obadicnet*   to   duly,   had   made   them  soldiers.     They .wore   purged   of   all  the little follies and excesses*of their  recruit days.   The I-istlnct to fight for  llieir country against her I'och, which  had first prompted theni lo enlist, this  seedling   of   unselfish   sacrlllce,   had  grown   and   developed     Into   a   grout  ideal.  j     They   wore,   lho   bulwarks   .<f   their  i country.

They gave  liim confidence, and at such times his  distaste for the army grew more violent than ever. His "business ties"���������  represented by so many dollars per  week���������assumed greater importance iw  his mind, until he felt quite a man oj:  affairs, in whom the commerce of the  country was not a little involved.  He glanced at the clock, and. was  surprised that he had spent four hours  around the green cloth. He had killed the time very pleasantly, he reflected.  "Let's go get a highball and some  supper," he suggested! "Then we'll  take in a show."  *    *    *    *  After the fourth hour,  noticeable change in the  the bombardment. The  guns, though almost a������  quite as incessant as ever, hailed from  behind. The British artillery, strongly reinforced���������for this-advance action  had long been pre-concerted���������seemed  now to have reached the very, zenith  of its attack whilst the Prussian firs  had become intermittent and halfhearted���������many of their "batteries being out of action.  An Ambulance Corps, was busy in.  Hell Ditch, laying the wounded upon  stretchers, to be borne away, by Hazard Avenue and a network of trenches,  to a base hospital. Even as they  worked, a word winged Its way eagerly down the line, and every able  soldier sprang swiftly to attention,  and even the wounded sought to rise.  Thirty seconds, forty second's, fifty  seconds, they stood as on parade, and  then the command all had waited so  long and patiently for was whispered fatefully from section to sectiouc  and in three unswerving ranks*,  bristling with bayonets, they swept  across No Man's Land���������No Man's  Land no longer.  Furious sprays of stee from machine guns, and a cyclone of rifle bullets  searched and devasted their ranks,  but could not stay.these valiant boys.  In three successive waves, each  stronger than the last, they hurled  themselves upon the Prussian trench,  and because they had seen the things  these. Huns had done against the  weak and hepless in mutilated France  and Belgium, filling them with an anger that seemed to scorch their hearts,  they fought as only those can who  know they fight on the side of God  and the Angels.  And when the red dawn. broke, a  little more of France lay in the hands  of the Allies.  *    *    *    *  A week later, his leg shattered by  shrapnel, Pte. 4A1 lay in a French,  hospital, and wrote a letter to his  mother, out in the Canadian West.  This letter, because of the appeal  it sounded, was published later in a  Winnipeg paper.  "Tell the boys," it ran, "that they  must come and help us, and not delay. They would not need any coaxing if they ootid see what I have  seen, peaceful villages and innocent,  country towns burned to the ground  for sheer spite, and women and children mutilated, and worse. No man deserving of the name, can know that  such things are, and not lend a hand  to stop them."  .The Parasite, seated in his favorite  cafe, put down the paper in which he  had just read this passage". He looked  troubled and perplexed. Had these  words, straight from the heart of a  wounded soldier, touched his manhood at.last? What were his thoughts?

Kaiser  A contingent oE Irish recruits were  leaving their native village for the  military centre, amid cheers from  the assembled villagers and the departing men. Suddenly one of the  recruits called for '"Three cheers for  Che Kaiser." When the contingent  arrived at its destination this man  was called up before the officer in  charge and asked what he meant by  such conduct. He was quite cheerful about it. "Och, Colonel." he said,  'you don't understand Ireland. If it  hadn't been for the Kaiser, there'd  have been no blooming war."  Liver Sluggisfe?

That is the way most people feel in the spring. Easily tired, appetite fickle, sometimes headaches,  and a feeling of depression. Pimples  or eruptions may appear on the skin,  or tliere may .be twinges of rheumatism or neuralgia. Any of these indicate that the blood is out of order���������  that the indoor life of winter has left  its mark \ipou you and may easily develop   into  more  serious  trouble.  Do not dose yourself with, purgatives, as so many people do, in the  hope that you can put your blood  right. Purgatives gallop through the  system and weaken instead of giving  strength. Any doctor will tell you  this is true. What you need in spring-  is a tonic that will make new blood  and build up the nerves. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills is the only medicine that  can do this speedily, safely and surely. Every dose of this medicine makes  new blood wliich clears the skin,  strengthens the appetite and makes  tired, depressed men, women and  children bright, active and strong.  L. R.

My whole system was  badly run down, and although I faithfully took a tonic given me by my  doctor I could note <no improvement.

The Lewis Machine Gun  One of the guns which has been  adopted by the British i'or land and  aerial operations is the L,ewis machine gun. Canadian battalions also are  armed with this quick-firing weapon,  the invention of Colonel I. N. Lewis,  late of the United States army. It  weighs twenty-six and a half pounds,  is marked by great simplicity, and can  be dismantled or assembled in thirty  seconds. It fires existing service ammunition at the rate of five hundred  rounds per minute, is gas-operated and  air-cooled, and may be fired continuously In any position without danger  of overheating. It is particularly  .adapted for firing from aeroplanes  and from armored cars or automobile  mounts.  Demand for Flaxseed  Exceeds the Supply  Prices   Ruling   Very    High  The annual product ion of flaxseed  in North America is from 15,000,000  to 18,000,000 bushels, while the consumption is about ;]O.U00,000 bushels.  The shortage of 12,000,000 to 15,000,-  000 bushels is normally imported from  Argentina..  The war, however, has forced tho  freight rate from Buenos Ayres up to  70c a bushel, and has correspondingly  increased the price of every bushel on  hand or that <-an be raised here. So  instead of selling at 70 or 80 cents  a bushel as in 1912, flaxseed has som  this winter as high as $2.26 and has  averaged around $2.  This makes it at least as porlitable  a crop to grow as wheat in wartime.  Director Grisdale of the Dominion experimental farm, Ottawa, says: ���������  "Prices for flax are likely to be good  this coming fall, so where circumstances suggest flax, it will quite likely be wise to grow this crop." ���������  Fortunately the last two weeks of  May is the best time to sow flax, and  it does well on new breaking, so that  after wheat seeding is finished a considerable acreage of flax can be got  in as an extra, lt leaves the soil in  as good shape for wheat as would a  summerfallow, and the farmer has a  profitable   found  crop  to  the  good.

Men in the very prime of life, and in  the midst of business activities, are  suddenly cut off. In many cases the  blow comes before they realize their  condition.  And what is the  cause 1   Most  usually overeating and drinking, combined with too  little  bodily   exercise.  The   blood   becomes  overloaded with  poisons.   The kidneys break down in an  effort to iilter tho blood, degeneration  of the arteries takes place, an artery in  the brain hursts, a  clot is  formed and  paralysis results.    Or it  may  be   an  artery in the heart that gives way and  causes heart failure.  And how is this condition to be  avoided % By moderation in eating  and drinking, and by keeping the liver,  kidneys and bowels regular and active.  If you do not get sufficient exercise to  accomplish this, it is necessary to use  such treatment a.-s Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pills.

In the new minister of  education the premier would also  appear to have chosen as likely a  looking prospect as there was to  the right of Mr. Speaker in the  last house, and certainly a much  more qualified minister than Hon.  Thos. Taylor, who was assigned  that department in the ''business  men's cabinet" of such recent unhappy memory.  The premier is also to be commended on rilling the portfolios  before election day, thus effectively  preventing hams like Tom Caven  and Bill Hunter possibly getting  away with the votes of some of the  more benighted on the plea that  they had been favorably mentioned  for cabinet honors.

N.li.   -liiinuthori'/ed publication ot thia  There was quite a good turnout at  the Auditorium on Thursday night-  last for fche rally under W.C.T.U.  auspices, at which the main feature  was the address of Mrs. Gordon  Wright, president of the Dominion  organization, who is on a return trip  to her home at London, Ontario, after  a tour of the western provinces. The  chair was.taken by Rey. R. B. Pow,  who spoke briefly in eulogy of the  organization's work, in introducing  the speaker.  Mrs. Wright's talk was headed "The  Gain of Sacrifice." Beginning with a  beautiful description of the crocus-  crowned prairie, which won the hearts  of all prairie lovers, the speaker  allegorically interpreted their message  as they submitted their verdant surface to the tooth of the harrow and  cultivator and ploughshare, beauty  giving place to utility���������the prairies  yielded bread for the feeding of the  mutitude.    "Ah, surely so."  Mrs. Wright followed this with with  the boom period of the west, when  men and money were literally flowing  into it. Then people spoke in strange  terms to an easterner "about investment without capital, and a "turn  over"���������and wakened up to find themselves wealthy. She wittily referred  to the only "turnover" she knew of���������  that of the pancake, which must be  done at the "psychological moment"  or���������and left her hearers to make tho  comparison in reference to the turnover in real estate. This boom time  was surely one of great gain to us in  the west, though some even of those  who prized the higher and better  things were overcome with a reeling  of depression of loss.  Then came the war, and the west  made her generous response to the call  of the empire. Men and money were  sacrificed foi- the great cause and notwithstanding material depression and  quiet business the feeling is abroad  that we are making real progress in  the things that are worth while���������a  clear sense of duty, a higher morality,  a finer spirituality. So, through our  sacrifices we sire gaining our own true  life and also helping to save and win  the true life of the world. "Great  gain of sacrifice.    Ah, surely so."  Continuing on this line Mrs. Wright  assured that one of the most striking  evidence of these better things is the  rapid prt gress of the temperance  movements, which had almost covered Canada, and briefly outlined the  progress that had been made from  Prince Edward Island to Vancouver  Island.  She also showed how this was part  of a world-wide movement-, and cited  Russia, Belgium, Servia and Prance,  pointing ont the sacrifices these people  had made���������alongside which anything  we had done paled into utter insignificance, and incidentally is causing ns  to revise onr ideas of other nations.  Not. the savagery of Russia, as was  our wont, do we now fear, but the  civilized savagery of the Teuton. The  speaker then made a comparison of  Russia's drastic action in getting rid  of the vodka and B.C.'s proposed plan  of extensiou of timo.  The early part of the meeting was  brightened hy vocal numbers by Miss  K. Smith and Mit*ses Muriel and Frances Knott, and a. pianoforte duett by  Misses Ella Dow and L. Edmondson.  The audience also rendered a couplo of  campaign songs in rare good style.  At the close light refreshments were  served.  Rossicnd camp is producing between  1,000 and '1,200 tons of ore daily at  present.  Cutworms are doing much damage  to strawberry plants and vegetables  at Bos well.  Kaslo's 1916 cherry crop promises to  be one of the best eyer, and big prices  are anticipated.  From Fort Steele and Wasa comes  the report that that country is overrun with gophers.  In the Okanagan- they are complaining of not enough moisture to ensure  good crops as yet.  Phoenix has given 84 citizens for  overseas service, three of whom have  been killen in action.  Wild strawberries are reported un- !  usually     plentiful     throughout     the  Okanagan this year.  The English Church rector at Greenwood has saved up enough money to  buy a Ford motor car.  Kaslo has dispensed with the services  of the assistant city clerk and raised  the pay of the city clerk $20 a month.  Twenty Chinamen working at  Gerrard cutting shingle bolts are on  strike for a higher price per cord.  Grand Forks had 1800 out-of-town  visitors on Victoria Day. 135 autos  helped convey part of the crowd to  town.  James F., son of J. H. Schofield,  M.P.P. for Ymir. has enlisted for  overseas ser-yice with the university  corps.  S.' H. Simmons of Mirror Lake lost  a dairy cow on Sunday. The animal  chocked to death trying to swallow an  apple.  The principal of Fernie school will  draw $175 a month next term. Ten  of the other teachers were also given  raises.  The Forest Mills Co. will next week  start sawing at their mill at Arrowhead, where-they have 19,000,000 feet  of logs.  Five of the students at Kaslo high  school offered for active service last  week but were refused on account of  their age.  The C.P.R. tunnel at Rogers Pass  is being lined with cement. It is five  miles long, and will be ready for  traffic this summer.  Revelstoke youngsters cleaned up  the town of rags, bones, bottles, etc.,  last month, the sale of which netted  the Belgian Relief Fund $26.61.  So great is the cream supply at  Grand Forks butter factory that for  the first time in its history two churn-  ings had to be done one day last week,  Kaslo's city-owned electric plant  shows a profit of ,$1,200 on the past  year's operations, It is expected to  mako $1,500 in the next tvvelye  months.  The Greenwood smelter has blown  out the second furnace, and is now  running its two large furnaces. If the  coke supply does not weaken the  smelter can now treat 1800 tons of o**e  daily.

IK nVII ?7&TIflM K  While the charges, the bursting of  shells, and the hand-to-hand combats  make up to a great extent the picture  of war, one of the gravest dangers  ���������which the soldiers face in the field is  the bullet of the sniper. They are  the clever marksmen who select some  position where tbey are almost invisible to their opponents, and send a  well-directed bullet at each target  which is exposed for a fraction of a  "minute.  Remarkable as examples of the ingenuity of these snipers are, some of  the stories of their methods of disguise which are related by the soldiers who return from- tbe ti*enehes. A  number of such stories have been compiled by an English newspaper, and  give an insight into this method of  warfare���������an art whioh has been raised so high tliat a moment's forgetful-  ness, a second pause in an exposed  section of the line, spells death to the  soldier.  "A Tommy, recently returned home,  tells an extraordinary story of the ingenuity and death ��������� of a German  Bniper," says the newspaper. "This  particular sniper was-encountered on  II ill Seventy, When dawn broke the  soldier was chilled to the bone and  weakened with the loss of blood, as  he had been' wounded the night before. - Unable to move, he lay flat  on his back and tried to get some  Bleep. The rest and the warmth of  the sun revived the soldier and _he  raised his head. Another wounded  soldier started to walk back to the  trenches. A moment later he pitched  forward, shot through the temple by  a sniper.  "five minutes later another man  moved. He started to get to his feet,  but seemed startled "by something and  lay down again "quickly. The other  wounded man followed his example. A  moment later he saw the grass, about  twenty yards away, move tn a peculiar  manner. Instead of moving sideways  as    it " would   from  a  body  passing  for we sent both the artist, and his  picture flying back into the German  trenches, and the picture was the.  more intact of the two. A well placed  bomb accounted for him.  "We caught a beast of a sniper in a  curious manner a few months ago.  Our regiment was stationed about  eight hundred yards from the German  trench and, like all others, we suffered  much for want of water. Half a mile  in the rear ran a small stream aud the  men used to steal out at night for  water. These men were constantly being sniped.  "A number of our men had    heen  killed or wounded in this manner and  it was agreed that the sniping came  from somewhere behind our lines.    A  \ close   days' search   revealed   nothing.  The CO. was getting savage and hi^  attitude  obviously  demanded that he^  must   do   something   special   for   the*  benefit of the undiscovered  sniper.  "Early one morning the command  came that we were to make a great  circle and beat inward, not leaving a  bit of ground uncovered. Nothing  came of it���������that is to say, nothing  except a, shapeless old French farmer  whom we found driving his riding  plow for potatoes. When we ques-  tioend him he flew into a rage because we w*ere tramping his beloved  ground and demanded that we clear  off at once as there was no 'espion'  around.  "We had to do so. In making his  report to our chief the subaltern remarked reflectively as he told of how  the farmer gnashed his teeth at us,  'Jolly fine teeth, and  clean, too."  " 'What?' snapped the irate CO.  'Mr. X���������, you take a couple of men  and go to the farmer. Engage him  in conversation while your men pin  him from, behind suddenly. I don't  want to lose men- capturing a dangerous  sniper with  clean teeth.'  "This was a sharp blow at the sub-  i altern.    but  it was  precisely  as  our  Huge drills  ially brought  they not only  for the  mine.  He was a powerful young man, and  a search revealed a belt of cartridges  and two automatic pistols of German  make. Later in the day we found a  little dug-out in a ditch with a rifle  hidden away in a screen of bushwood.  There is only one end for men of this  kind, and he got it.  "Don't  think    that  confined to one side,  men    who    are very  larly the Canadian chaps.  is  a  full-blooded  Indian ir.  the   sniping   is  We have some  clever,  particu-  One such  the  Can-       ._           . chief   suggested.

Suspicion was finally aroused to such an extent that  the soldier took aim at the moving  tuft of grass and fired three volleys  In rapid succession. Crawling over  to the spot where the mound of  grass and suddenly stopped twitching,  he found a dead German sniper. Real  sods of grass had been bound by  cords to a waterproof sheet, which  had been strapped to the sniper's back  making  a perfect disguise   for  him."  Continuing its anecdotes of the  snipers, the newspaper quotes from a  long letter written by a soldier, in  which he explains the dangers presented to the men hy the snipers.  "Along one stretch of front," he  eays, "we were much puzzled by the  angle at which the sniper's bullets  Avere coming over. On the left was a  line of leafless pollard willows, but we  could see that there was nobody behind the trunks.  "Several of our officers tried to find  a solution, but all to no purpose. At  last Captain X���������. who happened to  be familiar with the ways of old willows, took charge and ordered three  men to fire a few shots at each willow. The sniping ceased. Two of  the willows were hollow, and the German had crept inside the trees, and  wore firing through cracks in the stem  with automatic revolvers. For two  days there was no more sniping, but  on the third day the fire was resumed as briskly as before, and with just  iih deadly an effect. Fire wan. opened  sigaln on the willows, but this timo  tliere wnn no result.  "Captain X��������� was just as suspicious as over, and ho Instructed the  nearer*!, battery to make short work  of the willows.

Inside thi* willow we found  not, only a Germnn bnt a steel plate  which fitted outsldo him nnd inside  tlio willow, making a proof against  rlllo bullets.

The sappers worked at the gallery for  four whole months, during wliich not  for a single moment was the task interrupted. They were commanded by  young officers, among which was a  Roman patrician, who was the first  to advocate the blowing up of the top  of the mountain, and who convinced  the officer in command that it was  the only means of taking the position.  were employed, espec-  up for the purpose, as  had to bore the gallery  but to make it wide  enough to allow plenty of room for the  charging column wliich was to storm  the smouldering debris. They were  within twenty-four hours of accomplishing their task when the listening  posts perceived the unmistakable and  unceasing^rumble of Austrian picks  excavating a counter gallery. a  young lieutenant rushed back to  the sappers, "Boys," he shouted,  "they are trying to blow us up; you  had better hurry and make them i  jump first."  Feverishly they got through another eighty yards, and as they were yet  short of the calculated distance they  decided to double the charge. Five  tons of explosive gelatine were  brought up and carefully placed; the  fuse was made ready. The sappers  were impatient. Now for an attacking squad. Twenty-five N volunteered,  and a sergeant who had been degrad-  * ed for lack of discipline asked to be  allowed to command and win back  his rank.  The lieutenant pressed the button.  The soldiers shouted as their nerves  gave way after the high tension of  expectation passed, and a tremendous  earthquake seemed for a' moment to  be the lord of that mountain.  Fifteen survivors out of the twenty-  five volunteers penetrated the pulverized trenches and occupied the shapeless ruins of what was once an impregnable stronghold. The Austrians,  whose bodies were mangled under enormous rocks, were surprisingly  numerous. It was learned afterward  that a relief garrison had arrived that  very day, and that the one in occupation had not left, as they expected  a powerful Italian attack. The Italians are today consolidating the important position which commands  the valley of Livinallongo, and may  be the key for an advance on Trent.

The fact is that they  occupy a front 22 miles long. They  also say that our army is weakened  in numbers and morale. I reply that  it never was more numerous or better  equipped since the war began.  These are not empty words, but  stern reality. Our morale was never  higher.

Worship of a False God  Military Advantage at the Expense of  Humanitarianisin  The captured commander of the  Zeppelin L15, Lieutenant Briethaupt,  has just given to the press what he  regards as the justification of the air  raids. They are designed, he says, to  gain a military advantage. They are  intended to destroy warships, armed  positions, and factories; not to kill  old men, women and children. That  they practically never achieve the  avowed object and practically always  accomplish the disavowed aim is a  fact that he rather too blithely overlooks, it is this deification in Germany's war methods of the "military  advantage," at the expense of idealism  and humanitarianism, which has  shocked the world. The moment a  military advantage is in question, be  it never too shadowy or mythical,  every other consideration must go by  the "board.  The rest of the world is not ready  to accept Germany's supreme valuation of the "military advantage." lt  does uot believe, that the entire system of ethics evolved by Christianity  should take a hasty departure the  moment the "military advantage" puts  in an appearance. Belgium was sacrificed because the hungry "military  advantage" demanded its life. The  Lusitania was sunk because some  imagination was able to see the "military advantage'' in the act. Non-  combatants are being regularly murdered in Great Britain because a  microscopic "military advantage" has  bsen discovered in the practice.  Civilized nations in the past have ordinarily refused to sacrifice the more  sacred principles ot iiUinariity 'iir**"exchange for an infinitesimal ."military  advantage."  It is said that. Germany cannot understand whs* she has alienated the  sympathy of the largest part of the  neutral world, but the explanation is  certainly not very difficult. A prejudice in favor of Christian ethics seems  ineradicably rooted in tha modern  civilized mind. The- substitution of  tbe god "military advantage" for this  system of ethics is not one which can  easily be effected. The average American, for example, flatly refuses to  regard a fanciful military advantage  as sufficient cause for murdering an  innocent babe. Murder with a phantom explanation he regards none the  less as murder.  It has already been pointed out  that the military advantages arising  from the Zeppelin raids are largely  negligible. Naturally this fact but intensifies their awful inhumanity. So  long as they are continued, Germany  is carrying on a propaganda against  herself in the neutral world which far  outweighs the propanganda she has  organized on her own behalf. The  adjective "militaristic" is one which  she has often expressly disclaimed.  But, such a flat prostration before the  shrine of "military advantage," involving, as it does, the sacrifice of any  principle that, that insatiable god demands, means surrender less than a  complete surrender to militarism.  Neutrals not sharing Germany's limitless worship of this new god cannot  hut view her novel war creed ���������with  painful surprise and aversion.���������Minneapolis Tribune.

An "Address to the People of tha  Allied Nations," bearing the signatures of five hundred pr.om.ment Americans in all walks of life and expressing sympathy with the allies in the  present war and hope of their victory,  has  been  made   public.  The names signed to this memorial  represent forty-two States of the  Union. More than 150 of the signers  belong to business and legal circles,  including several former cabinet officials, ex-senators, ex-governors, railroad presidents, etc. The clerical pi*o-  fession- is represented by -thirty-two  bishops and other prominent clergymen. More than twenty college residents and many other distinguished  educators, authors, sculptors, painters,  actors and architects have signed ihe  memorial.  The address follows, in part:  "We, the undersigned citizens of  the United States of America, send  to you, the people of the nations of  the triple entente and your allies, this  message:  "Since the beginning of the present  terrible world conflict there have not  been lacking in America individual  expressions of ardent sympathy with  the cause of Great Britain, France  and their allies, and horror and detestation of the methods employed by  the Teuton confederates in the conduct of the war. Patriotic Americans, however, ha.ve hitherto hesitated to unite in any more' formal  statement.  . "The time has come, however, when  Americans owe it to themselves to  express their sympathies and their  judgment.  "The ablest German publicists and  professors have presented the Aus-  tro-German contentions with great,  eloquence, i^umerous vaerman documents have been widely circulated,  and an active, and sometimes insidious German propaganda has been extensively carried on in the United  States.  "The signers of this document are  not unmindful of the great contributions which Germany has in the past  made to the common treasure- of modern civilization; all of which acknowledge our debt to Germany; many of.  us have had the advantage of German education; some of us are of  German blood. But the welfare of  that civilization for which Germany  has done so much, the highest interests of Germany herself, demand  that in this conflict Germany and  Austria shall he defeated. We confid- ~  ently and hopefully look forward to  that result.  "The invasion of Belgium we regard as a, crime which can never be  justified. It will remain a blot upon  the history of Europe. The conscience ot the American people cries  out and protests against outrages  upon civilization committed by your  enemies, and against their methods of  warfare that break the international  laws of nations and the moral laws  of humanity.  "The sanctity of treaties, the rights  of small nations, the question as to  whether militarism shall dominate  civilization, are all involved in the  final decision.  "A peace which    does  not  restore  Belgium to the Belgian people and to  their  own   government,     which   does  not givo them such indemnity as will  allow them so far as possible to reconstruct their wasted cities and villages    nnd restore again their rulnod  prosperity,   a  peace   which  does  not,  recognize the rights of    the    smaller  nationalities of Europe; a peace which  does   not   offer   some   guaranty   that  such a calamity    as the present war  shall not recur���������a peace    which does  not insure    these things  would be a  disaster and not a blessing.  "It is because wo believe that the  success of Great Britain. France.  Italy and Russia will mean tho restoration of Belgium and of Serbia ami  the suppression of inilitnrisni that,  we ardently hope for that consummation. In that hope wo believe the future of civilization to be Involved."  Australian   Machine  Au.st i'aliu   has   overcome  Savane Hunn<**r  Mury and Tommy had been to hear  a lniHiilonary talk at.
