Not only is it remarkable that so  many different industries, eveninclading  foundries, require? wood . to carry on  their operations, . brit it is equailly  noteworthy that twen**y-s.i_ of the  thirty-four kinds of wood usei Bhould  grow in Ontario. The supplies of  some of them, it is true, are rearing  exhaustion, but this was not always  the case, nor is it likely, with the  steady rise in wood prices, that this  will long continue to be the case.  Mr.~E. J. Zavitz, Ontario Forestry  Commissioner, says:���������"There is at present in -tho old settled portion of Ontario an aggregate of abont 8,500 square  miles of formers' woodlands.

Ontario was once a land  of valaabls harrdweeds,  and will be sc  again;  Another remarkable thing illustrated  by this bulletin is the variety of uses  tb which woods, still-common in Ontario, may be put. Elm and basswood  are used iu thirty-one industries, and  ash is another valuable hard Wood with  a wide range of use.

The profit to tlie terminal elevarost  during the past year was enormous  according to those interested in the  grain business. x  Much of the number two Northern  that came in during -tbe last, crop  year went to swell the No. 1 Northern  in the elevators.

By Aug. 31, a total of 3,024,904 bushels had been shipped out and . there was on hand 52,-  752 bushels. The shortage here was  210,756 bushels? all of Avhich had gone  to make up the liigher grades^  With No. four Northern the .same  proposition is clear. The amount received was 15,246 ^nd the amount  shipped out Avas only 3,52_. There  Avas none on hand Aug. 31. The shortage in this grade was 11,723.  No Grade Shortage  In the No Grade classification the  Suortage is larger than in any other.  The total amount o������ No Grade wheat  received was 4,212,150.

In that sphere it  makes good its claims, its  standing is as undeniable and  as impregnable in the life  of the nation as is the standing of the State itself. Both  are organs of the nation's  life* Each, at its best, is  dependent   on   the   o';her.  One cannot languish and  the  other  not suffer   lo_s.  The abundant vitality of  the one is life abounding to  the other. When life in both  is full and free the nation  is  at  its  highest  and best.  Canada might come to  greatness as a nation with  less area than a half-continent, less wealth thau that  of our mines and rivers and  fields and factories, but without moral character and  spiritual life this nation would  be doomed in the making,  and its very wealth would  hasten its decay.

This outcry is all a fake  and is made for the purpose  of concealing some facts  which are very damaging to  the   Liberal party.  The  facts  are   these: ���������  During the year 1911, the  last year when Sir Wilfrid  Lauricr's protege, W. L. Mac  kenzie King, .was* Minister of  Labor, he had compiled a  Statistical report of comparative prices throughout Canada  covering a period of years  from   1890   to   1909.  This report shows   that:���������  During the six years of  Conservative government.  (1890-1896) prior to Lauricr's  accession to power, tbe prices.  of food products were gradually reduced, reaching the-iv  lowest  point in   1896-97.  From the very first year  of Lauricr's rule, prices began  lo soar, and the history of  the Liberal regime is one  steady climb iu the price of  food products, the highest  point being reached during  the last few ye.irs of the  Liberal  administration.  Tjuc_u aie facts gleaned by  Mackenzie King aud cannot,  be refuted  or   denied   by the  vntarlo, with a. population  of 2.523,274, has an executive  council of ten members who  receive $6,000 a year each.  Manitoba had, at the last census, a population of 455,614.  There are six mcnvbeis of its  executive council with a salary,, according to the parliamentary guide, of #3,000 a  year. British Columbia in  1911 was credited with a population of   392,480,   and has  serven cabinet ministers who  were paid #4,000 a year. Alberta, whose population is given at 374, 663 iu the census,  has eight cabinet ministers  who receive #6,000 a year, exclusive of indemnities. In  the high, cost of administration Alberta leads the field  by a wide margin.���������Calgary  Herald.  T   -1 1  J.^X*J<fX *ti.J.

CITY OF ORATORS,  liondon of a Sunday Is Crowded With*  Pablric Speakers. 1  "London  le   a  city  of   orators,"  writes Harry Furniss in The Windsor  Magazine/'      There is  more  public  speaking to the acre,-especially   On  Sundays,  in this city than in any  other.   To get- the full benefit of this  boon, go to Hyde Parte on a fine Sunday.   By selecting-a location advantageously it is possible to listen simul-'  Janeously to lectures on. Fruiterian-'  ism, Socialism, and Christian Science,  besides  picking   tip   valuable   fragments of discourse on' Esoteric Buddhism and Mormonism.   A movement  is.on foot to establish a fund for  providing Hyde   Park   orators  with  voice lozenges���������a much needed char- '  ity.    There ls also another society,  for providing tbem with muzzles, but  this -by..the. way.. Visitors to London !  who wish to orate themselves are at!  liberty to do se.   Stand at a corner of j  a street talking in a large voice���������-it is :  immaterial what you ,taik about���������and  a crowd will soon gather round you  and as long as you go on orating,  nothing but a policeman or a collecting box will move them on."  On. the subject of mommoth shops,  he says: "/There hre several big buildings in London called stores' or mammoth shops. The idea is to gather under one roof all that the heart of  man���������and man, in this instance, embraces woman-���������can desire. If they  have a fault, they are too large. The  other day I met my friend George,'  with his wife and son and heir: they  were -bound for a certain mammoth'  shop. By invitation I accompanied  tbem. We entered, and left George, ;  junior, in a room devoted to such  encumbrances, and parted from Mrs. -  George, whose objective was gloves,'  while bis was cigars. As they intended to buy a lamp-shade, a purchase needing joint selection, we arranged to meet, in the lamp department. We parted lightly, little guessing���������But I anticipate. George and I  strolled away, and some time later  tracked the cigar department to its  lair. His purchase made, we strolled  onwards, seeking lamps. This entail- j  ed using the lift for the thi?d. ilms- \  for, curiously enough, no two articles;  one wants are everbn the same floor.!  The lamp department took a deal of  finding. Again and again, as we traversed department after department,  we seemed to sight the promised land,?  ���������-.but mirage like, it turned to Iron?  mongery or Haberdashery or Garden  Requisites. It" was like the story of  Diogenes inverted, two (I trust) honest men seeking a lamp. At last,  with the kind assistance of a pageboy, whom we commandeered as  guide, we located it. We found ourselves in a wilderness of lamps. But  not with the aid of all their radiance  ���������for most of them were lighted���������  could we discern the familiar figure  of Mrs. George. We inquired for her  in vain. After waiting a little, we  went for the gloves, or, rather to look  for her. In brief, we picked.up ,-jrhe (  . trail in the:glove department, some ,  Way between gloves and lamps. We.  heard of her in perfumery t just miss  ed her in lamps, doubled back for  gloves, missed her again. Went to  fetch George, junior, but she had  been before, us. Hours passed.  George's hair began to turn gray under the strain. We set all the resources of civilization���������I mean the  stores���������into activity, and so by this  time had Mrs. George, tired of being  a grass, or rather, a stores widow.  Detectives and department managers  ware pressed ihto service.. Telephones  were used. But the impatience of husband and wife time and again spoiled everything. Suppose George, by-  telephone, was told his wife was in  leather goods, and she was Informed  at the same time that we were in  silverware, sb*1 immediately started  to join him via jewelry, and he to  meet her via games, and so again they  lost each other. At last, by dint of  much tact and diplomacy ��������� for by  this time she was hysterical and he  homicidal���������-both were decoyed simultaneously into boots and shoes. It  was a touching scene, like the last  act of an old-fashioned melodrama.  The three of us were so affected that  we had to adjourn to linen and buy  new pocket handkerchiefs. And, by  the way, I don't think they ever  bought that lampshade."  Motor Cjclistfs Feat.  W.

Manitoba Indians Pa6s Resolution to  Guard Against Firo.  Probably nowhere..else in Canada la  there a stronger co-operative spirit  In forest lire protection than has been  developed by the Chief Fire Ranger  of the Dominion Government among  tho rangers, Indians, trnppors and  packers oi th" Northern Manitoba  Firs District. The worl? &tnong tlie  Indiana nxa been especially beneficial,  for in the past they were notoriously  careless, especially in leaving camp-  fires burning. Ikit, largely owing to  tho energy and initiative of Mie Chief  Ranger, the attitude ot th. Indians  has '.'eon c!xm!***ed from on������ of indifference to one of keen interest, bo  much so that thnt official writes: The  conservation of the forests has become ns red-hot a topic out here as  real estate in the West.  Recently, when treaty money was  being paid to the Indians at Cross  Lake, a special council meeting oC  severity-five to eight** Indians was  called, at which an anlH_aU discussion of forest five protection took  place. The Chief Ranger writes:���������  While the meeting was In progress,  the Indian Agent and party came, but  to tho surprise oJL many the meeting  held interest till, by a standing vote  all assorted their willmgnesB to help  in the protection ol the forests from,  tire. The chief and councillors wished me Jro convey to tht Director ot  Forestry at Ottawa this, their resolu-  itiou. .  Whenever posfiiblo such councils  are attended by the Chief Ranger,  and all Indians promising to co-operate with the Dominion rangers are  presented with a metr*. badge o_ office. The most intelligent of tihe Indians are engaged as regular flr������-  rangers By tlie Dominion Government  and do very conscientious worlc. Although the pafroi is -difficult, being  done wholly by canoe, and the weather Is often inclement, the eighteen  iire-rangers in this district average  j about eighteen miles a day? including  Sundays, throughout the summer.  During the whole season, no serious damage was done by fire althougli  many incipient forest "fires were extinguished, a fact that speaks well  for the efficiency of the patrol and  tlie value of tho co-operative spirit  inculcated in the Indians.

Within the  past two  years ������te_s have been taken to re-,  store the building and render it safe  for public worship, and under   the  enthusiastic assistance of the present  rector, Rev. A. B. Famey, thework  has-been "well and truly", done. Built  at a time when all buildings were the  P?c-d.tsct of  men's  hands alone,  tbe  old brick church bas stood remarkably well the strain of wind and weather for a century. When tho ceil ag  was removed during the process of  restoration?  the  frame  of the roof,  constructed   of   massive,   hand-hewn  beams, was found to be as sound as-,  the day on which. it was. laced together by the builders of a by one ?  7time.    A new ceiling has been put  ini the walls.hr.ve been reglazed and  decorated .with symbolic designs,. and?  the old worn floor has been covered  with  a preserving element, durable  and noiseless.

The work on  these is being done by hand, in keeping with the ceiling, and the lights  will be of wrought-iron lantern design, open at the top and bottom, but  with sides of amber-colored cathedral  glass, tbat will be restful to Me eyes  and will throw a gol_en glow  throughout the whole interior. Each  face of the light will be divided in  _inc csnares, separated by wrought-  iron .bands.

It is proposed to move them to the outer doorway, refinish them, and _ .eserve them  for another hundred years to the people of tbo town who have so many  memories connected with them. . .  The thought that Christ Church, Am-  berstburg, is the oldest brick structure in use in Ontario has stimulated  the people to make it a historic ana  memorable spot for all time to  come."

One bf  their ideas was tbat the preacher  ahould not use notes for bis sermons.  His words should flow solely by inspiration from his lips.  Consequently, there was consternation and alarm when a new preacher  came who was reported to use notes.  The. rumor ot this awful misconduct on his part soon spread and  threatened to become a church  scandal.  Finally, ono of lho pillars of tho  church, moro courageous than tho  rest, Interviewed tho pastor In order  to clear tho mattror up.

A few^ moments  later, amidst mad cheers from the excited crowd, he had touched the plate  with O'Hara, done likewise himself,  and was carrying his w-pparently unconscious comrade to the bench. Not-  withBta ding the violent protestations of the Chatham players, the umpire ruled that both scores would,  count, and as tho score was thus a  tie, ordered the teams to play on.  And now. came the most dramatic  scene of all. Young O'Hara was dead.  Awed witb tbe announcement tbe  crowd stood around with bared beads,  while the village doctor worked hard  to restore, if possible, the young player to life. O'Hara had sacrificed bis  life *that his team might win. He  had scored ft run while ���������dead, and  thus made wbat, to me at least, seems  to be the most solemn, most dramatic, and greatest play that baseball  -has ever seen."

Mr. Warburton was talking over the events of  the week, when, be was suddenly  surrounded by the bandsmen, one of  whom bore a red tunic and army cap  in his bands. "In recognition of  your strenuous work for the Army,"  he said, "we hero and now; create  you honorary   colonel,   and   present  what to do."  "I decided that the chief reason that  makes most of us forget people ?we  have met is indifference. We do not;  pay sufficient attention to what we are  doing.

Of course a great crowd  was present to hear the Conservative  leader,   and  whon   ho   entered  the  building there was a terrific crush  of people trying to seo him.   In tbe  throng was a woman with an infant.  Sho   was   struggling  desperately   to  get to the front, and in her excitement sho cried out:  "I will see Sir John!"  The exclamation  caught  his ear,  and getting a glimpse of tho Hiioakoir  through tho intervening people,   ho  divided tho crowd with kis hands,  and called back In answer:  "And you shall seo Sir John!"  In a momont ho was at her side  and tho prido of tho mother can be  bettor imagined than described when  he adzed tho baby and hell It in hin  arms like a fond uncle.  It was incidents -auch ns theno  that accounted for tho tremendous  bold upon tho affections of tho people possessed by Bir John A Macdonald.  many laurels  Mr. Warburton laughed heartily,  and donned his new "robes," to tho  great enjoyment of the bandsmen,  who then insisted on a "speech"  from the now "colonel." Wearing  the Army cap Mr. Warburton stood  up and told the boys what he  thought of tbo Army, and of fits  pleasure at being ablo to join in  their work, with not ovon a "private's" pay.

The vexed auestlon of the hot bath,  which was condemned by Dr.  For- j  tescue Fox at the International Con- i  gress of Medicine, was discussed by j  _ much-traveled 'alneologlst who has  inquired into the bathing habits of  many peoples  in  the  course of his  wanderings.  "England is the most bath-ridden  country in the world since "the days  of ancient Rome." he said. "Undoubtedly we have too many hot baths.  Too much hot-bath lounging and  washing are bad for the skin and for  the general constitution, and are generally a sign of laziness, self-indulgence and effeminacy. The modern  easily tired man is becoming a slave;  to his hot bath, where, with the aid  of an adjustable electric light, a  book-rest and a box of cigarettes he  evaporates his strength.  "Other countries are much more  moderate in their bathing habits, but  in England unlimited baths are the  ruler-daily or twice daily without fail,  and at other times when there is  nothing else to do. In German middle-class houses the bath is regulated  to a nicety, conformable with h,ealtb  and cleanliness. Not only the frequency but also the temperature of  the bath is studied. A thermometer  is found in most bathrooms.  "In Italy the hot bath is regarded  as even less of a necessity. A girl  friend was going to an Italian school  in Naples, and found on the hall  notice board on the first day of term  the following order:  " 'AU-girls wishing to have a bath  this terra are requested to write their  names here.'  "America ls a good second to England ln the bath obsession, and probably beats us for the luxury and variety of the fancy baths indulged In.  "Recognition of .the evil of overindulgence in bot water Is to be seen  ln a curious old custom still to be  found among the Older miners in  South Wales. Some ot these men  take their hot tub In the kltchon  with tbe greatest regularity after  work, but they wash every part of  the body except tbe spine, owing to  tho idea that the hot water takes the  backbone out of them.  "The Ideal Is probably a woolily  hot bath soak ot ten minutes, at a  terapornturo of 98 dog. to 101 deg.

It does away  with the need of  ���������;���������:."��������� y.'''; 'a   large   pastura  and Insures a full milk supply during  summer droughts.  Fodder preseryed Is a concrete silo  ls safe from fire and waste and retains  the maximum food value. The cost  of building a si 10 with a capacity of  150 tons need not exceed $300. It varies according to the supply of labor.  Concrete costs little more than wood  and is so much better !n every way  that it Is confidently recommended.  No fodder is relished so much by stock  as slluge. Its iufluence la beneficial  to tbe animal system, is invigorating  and prevents cripples and impaction.  Succulent silage makes for good health  and heavy milk flow. It ls equally  good for poultry and hogs.  Corn ls the most suitable of all crops  for silage. lt should bo harvested  when tbe bottom leaves are drying off  and the _rn!_ is doughy and glassing.  Without hurrying, the work of filling  the silo, the best method is to ensile  the crop as Boon as it ls harvested,  cutting the ft-ilks nnd enhn Into nmnll  bits.. The grain Is more or less macerated in the cutter.  Tho fodder thus treated is carried by  means of an clcVutcr cr blower, which  should deliver tho material as near tbe  center of the silo aa possible. This  may be done by tho aid of a bag chute  attached to tho mouth bf tho elevatoi  or the blower.  The labor of distributing tho fodder  ts thus minimized, nnd an even supply  of the material will bo distributed all  over tho silo. If tho foddbr bo allowed to fall direct from the mouth  of tho conveyor tho heaviest parts  will fall on ono sldo and tho lightor  parts on tbe other. Tho sllago will  not settlo evenly, nud loss will eventuate. To nsBlMt In closo packing lt  Is absolutely essential to tram plo tbo  product all over tho silo. Trampling  tho sides or nround tho edges Is not  Hiitllclont, for with tho shrinking of  tho con tor the ontor edges creep toward It and ii wny from tho wails,  thus allowing access of ulr and con  uequeut loss. The center Bhould al  ways bo kept a little higher than the  outer edges. The rate of lining should  bo six to eight ri*i������t por day. Quicker  filling than this may result Ip gon  orating too much heat, tn which ciibu  tho sllnge Is llublc to decompose.  After the tillo has been filled the  fodder should bo covered with a light  framework or coarao sheet and weight  cd down.

It Is advisable to give horses small  quantities only of silage: otherwise  there may be trouble from stomach  derangements. Limit tho amount fed  to. a few pounds per day. Pigs and  poultry will.eat small quantities.  Silage may be made of all plants that  animals are permitted to eat in the  green state, snd such fodder "-reserved  by this means loses but little of Its  feeding properties in tbo process, (n  one way there is a slight Improvement.  That Is, tbe tougher fiber of siloed  fodder- is softened and made thereby  more digestible and acceptable to animals.

Perched about at inter*'  vols among the rocks are some of tha .'  older males, evidently on the lookout;  for dangor. Behind them walk and  squat a heterogeneous mass of females  and of young animals. The females employ themselves ln various family tasks,  and tbe youngsters, playing and squabbling* chaBo ono another around to a  shrill accompaniment of chattering  screams.  Possibly two of the latter. In tha  course of a rough and tumble, Jostle  against ono of the older males.
