ORES  TON, B.  \J.m  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1916  No. 35  ���������m  ft v,  To Explain Spray  Method Thursday  Ranchers and all others interested  should make a memo of Thursday  afternoon, Sept. 21st. At 2.80 p.in.  that date M. S. Middleton, the assistant provincial horticulturist, who has  t his season boen conducting spraying  experiments ir. the Adlard and Stocks  & Jackson orchards is deyoting the  afternoon to explaining what methods  were adopted during the season's  operations on these places and the  fruit will be on the trees to show inst  exactly what success was obtained in  ������������ne of the worst years the Valley has  experienced in the matter of apple  scab.  On the Stocks & Jackson place the  work was done with a power sprayer  and some 35 trees, mostly all of the  Mcintosh Red variety, were used for  experimental purposes, lime and sulphur spray being used, being given a  half-dozen different treatments. Although we have not seen the fruit in  question we understand that it has  come through in first-class shape, and  speaks eloquently of the satisfactory  results obtained from systematic and  thorough spraying.  On the Adlard place the work was  carried on with a hand pump, and  while the showing is not so good all  the defects are not. entirely due to the  spray nor the method of putting it on  ���������at least one of the sprays was not  applied owing to the carelessnss of J.  P* Johnson, the early-season resident  horticulturist.  However, Mr Middleton will go very  thoroughly into all details of the season's work on these plots, and will  be only to happy to answer any and  all enquiries concerning the work. It  is quite a large subject and it is hoped  that every rancher mho can possibly  get away fromjwork for a few hours  will be on hand, and as near on "time  as possible, Thursday afternoon next,  home of Mrs. Agnes Farr, 1018 Eighth  avenue, Calgary west, when the Rev.

Walker, the  well kuuvvo Nelson optician will visit  Creston at the Mercantile store on  Sept. 18 and 19, prepared to test eyes  and fit glasses.  In the Kaslo riding the returns show  John Keen, Liberal, winner by a majority of 78. Creston took the news  with good grace. AU hands expected  a close vote, with both sides confident  of success.  The early returns were perplexing.  In the Valley, where an eyen break  was the best impartial observers conceded Long he rolled up a lead of 26 in  the seven polls. In Kaslo city, where  the Liberals hardly looked for a majority. Keen emerged with a lead of  64, to which was added another 25 at  Ainsworth.  The polls along the lake were mostly Long, though the majorities were  small.    The Valley polls stood :  Long  Sirdar...  !  10  Wynndel  10  Erickson jc.    8  Canyon City -; 20  Reclamation Farm-    9  Creston  : 76  Kitchener  10  At Boswell Long was in front with  a lead of 14, while at Crawford Bay it  was 15 all.  While there is the soldiers vote still  to be reckoned with it is not considered extensive enough to change the  result. Of course the chief interest  was in the political side of the balloting, and inconsequence little attention  was accorded the prohibition vote or  the woman suffrage contest, and these  returns are not available. However,  those rec-eived show that Creston Valley endorsed both propositions almost  two to one.  The Creston delegate also figured on  the programme as one of three speakers on the subject "Preparedness  of Women," which was discussed  under three heads: For the home,  For Professional life, For* public  service���������Mrs. Forrester handling the  latter feature of the topic.  Bowser Forces  Badly Beaten  Keen  8  5  9  16  7  70  2  At the polling yesterday the electors  of British Columbia hopelessly defeated the Bowser government. The  returns as complete as The Review  could gather them up to an early hour  this morning show the standing of the  parties as follows:  Liberal 34.  Conservatives 12.  Socialists 1.  Included in the Conservative  coinmr**: fii-e four seats which are still  doubtful, though at last reports the  Tory nominee was leading. One of  these is J. H. Schofield in Trail who is  in "front by 26, with several polls to  eome which are expected to pull him  through.  Premier Bowser went down to defeat   in   Vancouver,   and    with    the  Mrs. Jones of Kuskcnook. accompanied by Mrs. Montgomery of Nelson, were Sirdar visitors   on Tuesday.  Rev. R. E. Pow of Creston had  Presbyterian service here on Tuesday  evening.  The new sidewalk is all but finished  and is certainly a very great improvement, supplying a Long felt want.

Mrs. Thorpe, Miss Alice Embree and  Miss Tompkins of Croston wore Duck  Crook visitors on Tuesday, the guests  of Mrs. Penson.  Mrs. E. Williams and O. .1. Wigen  wero Creston cullers on Tuesday.

Well  over n hundred of them haye been  issued to date this season.  The next social event in Creston  will be a dance in Mercantile Hall on  Friday evening, Sept. 29th, under the  auspices of the local Red Cross Indies.  The admission is 50 cents  The September sitting of the County  Court at Croston is scheduled for  Wednesday next. It will hardly  materialize. So far as we enn loam  no cases have been entered.

Lust week's market commissioner's  report criticizes tho Creston ranchers  on tho score that they aro using too  long nails in boxing their apples.

Women's Institute  Report to. Date  A feature of the Women's Institutes  convention at Nelson this week was a  series of thi-ee-minute reports of the  work of each institute during the  year. The report of the Creston  organization, which was read by Mrs,  Forrester, is as follows:  Since the Crpston Women's Institute  was organized on January 8, 1916, we  have eight instructive, meetings, with  an average attendance of 39 members.  Some good, helpful papers were given  at these meetings, among which were:  A menu for a dinner cooked in a  cassorol, Patriotism, First Aid, A plea  A mixed car of apples and tomatoes  went out from Erickson on Saturday,  and a second   one was  pulled out on  j Wednesday.    It  is   likely   the  third  | will go to-morrow, and  will   be about  half green tomatoes.  The voting here on Thursday was  brisk, and while this is wx*it^ten before  the polls close we will hazard the  guess that R. J. Long will have a  majority at his home pod.  Corn is a bit of a luxury this season  bringing 30.centsa dozen���������cind scarce  at that.  Miss Annie Hamilton returned on  Friday from a week's holiday with  friends at New Denver and  Sandon.  A slight frost was reported in  some parts of Erickson district on  Friday morning, but little damage  appears to have been done. The nip  on Thursday  morning,   however, was  also down and out.

While all the   majorities   are   not  available enough of them  have  been  received to   warrant us in saying tin1  soldiers   vote   is not  at all   likely   to  affect the parties' standing.  It will be noticed that Mr. Brewster  has boen elected in two constituencies;  that Price Ellison is not numbered  among the winners, and last, but not.  least, our mutual friend Thomas  Donald Cavon has been repudiated by  the electors of Cranbrook.  Returns arc incomplete on prohibition aud woman suffrage but it is safe  to pz-cdict that they both have carried  bv a voto of at least three to two.

Thc world's potato crop iu 1914  covered 30,000,000 acres, . giving a  yield of 4,375,000,000 bushels.  Of the total acreage Russia had  9,000,000 and Germany 8,367,000.  Germany led in total yield,' however,  with 1,674,000 bushels, against less  than one billion for Russia. France  had half a billion bushels, and the  United  States 405,000,000.  In yield per acre, Norway came  first with an average of 247 1-2  bushels; Great Britain and Ireland  second with 241, France third with  230, Holland fourth with 223, and  Germany fifth with 200. Thc aver-  for Canada was 180, and for the  United  States  109.  In Germany, which produces well  over one-third of the world's potato  ��������� crop, only 28 per cent, of thc yield  ' is used for human food in normal  years. Fortv per cent, of the total  is fed direct to animals, 100,000,000  bushels arc used in the making of  alcohol, and 50,000,000 bushels rre  utilized in the manufacture of starch  and allied products.  In Japan a start lias also been  made in thc manufacture of starch  from potatoes in a large way, the  output for 1914-15 being 35,500,000  pounds.  iIIuEmMIVH  Air Fighting  Aerial  at  the  TheLkrhts  Of 65 Y  oo i ears  Are still doing  the shape of  duty in      _ Jd������������5.

Thc Belgian government made  an offer of reimbursement which  Holland     declines. Thc       refugee  ' camps, under control of the government, arc well organized and have  churches, schools, shops and posl-  omecs.  The refugees arc not compelled  to work, but ;i small wage is o IT ered  as an inducement to do so, and liicy  arc employed in constructing small  wooden bouses which can be iised  now and readily removed to Belgium  after the war.  Excellent educational facilities are  ottered.

When grain first heads  best time to observe thc  smut in it.  The smuts of grain arc carried  irom year to year in the spores of  smut cither on the surface or within  the kernels of grain. If a head of  I smutted grain is observed in the  field and one takes pains to trace the  head down to the plant from which  it conies and pulls up thc whole  plant, he will find that all of the  heads coming from, that plant are  smutty, and consequently will not  produce   grain.  Throughout thc West, there is a  loss usually of from one dollar and  upward per acre of grain due to thc  effects of smut.  Practically every particle of this  smut could be controlled by treating the seed grain. Every farmer  knows how to treat seed grain for  smut, or lie can find out very easily.  The cost of treatment, labor and material included, will normally be less  than  five  cents  per acre.  We know of no other investment  that will return as large a profit. We  are sure that more farmers would  treat for smut if they would take the  trouble to examine their grain fields  when they are heading out and actually makc a count of the smutted  heads in a given area.  A good way to do this is io drop a  barrel hoop down in a grain field and  count all the stalks of. grain within  the hoop, and then count the number  of smutted heads. If one docs not  actually look for smut he may pass  through a field every day in which  there is as much as ten to fifteen per  cent, of smutted heads and never notice theni.  When the Stomach Is Out of Order  the    Whole    System  Suffers.  Indigestion is one of thc most distressing  maladies  afflicting   mankind.  When  the  stomach is  unable to perform   the   work  nature  calls   for,   the  result is severe    pains    after    eating,  nausea,  heartburn,  fluttering     of   thc  heart,  sick    headache,    and  often    a  loathing for food, though the sufferer  is   really   half   starved.     People   with  poor digestion, too, frequently try all  sorts  of experiments  to aid  the process   of   digestion,   but   there   is   only  one way in which thc trouble can actually  be   cured,  that  is  through   thc  blood.    That is. why the tonic  treatment  with  Dr.  Williams'  Pink    Pills  cures  even   the  most  obstinate  cases  of indigestion.    They make rich,  red  blood   that   strengthens   the   stomach  and the nerves, thus enabling it to do  its work.    The process is simple, but  the   result   means   good  appetite   and  increased health and pleasure in life.  In  proof    of these  statements,    Mrs.  Albert. Hall,     Sonya,  Ont.,    says:  "I  have used    Dr. Williams' Pink    Pills  with    wonderful    results.      For    two  years I  was a great sufferer from indigestion,   which   almost   made   me  a  physical  wreck.    At times my sufferings were so great that 1 was unable  to attend to my household duties.    I  had   smothering   spells   at   times   and  was afraid to lie down to  rest. After  every meal, no matter how sparingly  I  ate,  I   suffered    great  distress.       I  tried several  doctors  but  their medicine  was  of no  avail.       I     saw    Dr.  Williams'    Pink    Pills    advertised to  cure  this  trouble  and  decided  to  try  them.     I   had  not  been   taking  them  long  when   I   felt  somewhat  improved.    This improvement continued and  after taking    ten  boxes  I  could     eat  and digest all kinds  of food and felt  better   than   I   had   done   for   years.  You may be sure I am very grateful  for  the  wonderful     relief  these  pills  have given mc.    I know they arc also  a   cure   for   anaemic   sufferers,   as   an  intimate     friend   of   mind   was  badly  affected   with   this   trouble,  and  after  taking several  boxes  she was  entirely cured."  You can get these pills through  any dealer in medicine or by mail,  post  paid,  at  50  cents  a  box  or  six  WgjS������������>mi  Threshermen and Weeds Act  Warfare   as  it   Occurs  Front Day by Day.

Mheutf the War  at the rate of $30,000,000 a day  with such a millstone of debt  already around her head ?  Comparative statistics, at any  rate, are aii in her favor. For  instance, .after the war with Napo-  lion the United Kingdom with her  income one-tenth of what it is today  was able successfully to meet a  national debt of $4,000,000,000. On  this basis she ought to be able to  meet a debt of $40,000,000,000 today. But of course she will not be  asked to do anything of the kind.  Long before the cost of war has  reached $25,000,000,000, Germany  wili have sued for peace.  Or, looking at it from another  angle, the situation is equally as  promising. Authorities have calculated that the auuual income of  the people of the United Kingdom  is in the neighborhood of $15,000,-  000,000. In his recent statement  to the British House  of Commons,  thoughtful little incidents which have  a   tendency  to  impress   upon   newspapermen  the fact that their unselfish  service to the public   does not always  go unappreciated,   transpired  at the  City   Hall   this morning,   when   the  members of the Alberta Press association, now in   convention   in  Calgary,  we're the recipients of a couple of boxes j other channel  of luscious fruit from  tbe Board  of   hiitors are  Trade  of   Creston,   B.C.    That    this  little   remembrance was appreciated,  aud that the newspaper men  enjoyed  the splendid   product of   the   British  Columbia  orchard,   which is gaining  an   enviable reputation  in  the  fruit  markets of the prairies,   was  plain to  be seen by the eagerness with  which  the scribes entered into   the spirit of  the occasion created by  the arrival of  the fruit.   The Oreston Board of Trade  was    tendered     the   thanks    of   the  journalists for the thoughtful act, and  Mr. G. F. Hayes, editor of thc Cresfcon  Review, a,nd a former secretary of the  Alberta Press  Association, was voted  a right good fellow   for an   interest in  the prairie association which does not  appear to be waning, even though Mr.  Hayes has since gone to reside in that  months past $128.56 being handed  over to treasurer C.

Although every room in Kaslo's  school is filled to Overflowing the  trustees cannot see enough finance in  sight to hire another teacher.

Dr. Bonnell of Fernie has been appointed medical officer in charge of  returned wounded soldiers returning  to South-East Kootenay.  Revelstoke had a fashionable wedding last week, and the Methodist  church was not large enough to hold  the crowd who wanted' to see the  ceremony.  Fernie milkmen insist that if the  council requires dairy inspection in  that city that no milk coming from  Alberta be allowed sold without a  similar rigid inspection.  Attendance at the public school at  Sandon is this term exceeding all past  records, there being an enrollment of  42. It is likely that an extra' teacher  will haye to be engaged soon.

On school matters  he also promised that he would endeavor to have the present system of  financing changed so that school  teachers would receive their salaries  as promptly as other government  officials, and trustees would not be  put to personal inconveniences tokeep  the schools running. Mr. Keen devoted himself largely to local issues  and promised that if returned he  proposed to visit every part of the  riding at least twice a year to find  out at first hand the people's needs  ahd thus be able to shape up his line  of action at Victoria intelligently.

However, the half hour Mr. Keen had  the floor he used to good advantage,  and his hearers went home convinced  that he had a splendid grasp of the  provincial situation and if elected will  give a good account of himself to the  advantage of his constituency.

No   Need for  Excessive  Alarm���Fai
Less Fatal Than Tuberculosis.
Several facts should be borne in
mind in connection with the epidemic
of infantile paralysis, technically
known  as  poliomyelitis.
Its infectiousness is thc most important element in thc situation. No
certain cure has yet been discovered.
Once the disease is contracted, it has
lo run ils course. All thc physician's efforts must be spent in taking
preventive measures. The infection
is probably caused by a virus whicli
penetrates through thc-nose and into
thc body, and indirectly brings about
a deterioration of thc nerve cells of
thc spinal cord and brain. This, in
turn, causes the muscular paralysis

Teaching a Boy to Swim
What  to  Do  and What  Not  to  Do
to Establish Confidence in
the Beginner.
There is a prevailing notion, especially among a certain type of fathers, that thc surest and quickest
way to teach a boy to swim is to
"throw-him in over his head and let
him 'go to it.' " Probably a surer
way to destroy a boy's
in the water has never been devised.
Thousands of boys are thrown in thc
water without knowing how to swim,
and have conceived a fear of thc water by this foolhardy method that
nothing   lias   ever  been     able   to   rc-
a, clothing, anything
that comes in contact .with or near
an infected person, may become a
carrying agent. Unfortunately, the
���oresencc of the disease is hard to detect in its early stages, while thc patient is still moving about and coming" in contact with other people. The
sj-mptoms are not well defined, but
often resemble those of typhoid. The
diagnosis is difficult, especially as
parents do not always realize that
their children are ill at all. Thus thc

Information has been obtained
from the Russian government representatives regarding the status < f
Russians serving in the Canadian I*'.x-

'.I lie wise father or teacher of swimming is he who wins his boy's confidence by first gelling him accustomed to the water in shallow places, and
thru gradually have the boy come to
hiin in deeper and deeper water unlit the young swimmer hardly knows
when he has ventured beyond his
depth. This is not the "sissy" method x>\" leaching boys how to swim,

tagion cannot always be taken. In
fact, there arc many "abortive" cases
which do not develop into acute poliomyelitis at all, but recover without
ever being detected. Such cases, like
typhoid "carriers," may be centres of
infection for a long time.
Happily, physicians no longer have
lo     depend     entirely on    symptoms.
Several     real   tests,   not      invariably
trustworthy, have been  worked    out.
Examination     of  a     suspect's  blood
and   of   his   spinal   fluid     reveal   cell
confidence J conditions which, taken together with
other   symptoms,     makc   it   possible,
especially     during    an   epidemic  like
thc present, to recognize a case with
a good degree of certainty,  even before the acute stage has been reached.       Also   the   test   by   injection   of
spinal   fluid   from a  suspect  into  thc
brain  of  a monkey  will  often  establish the presence of an abortive case.
There ought', therefore,    by    these
new methods,  to be. no    insuperable
difficulty m   'detecting     the     disease
and   keeping   it   under   control.     The
great   requisite   is   to   recognize     the
epidemic's  seriousness    and    treat    it
exactly as cholera or yellow fever or
diphtheria     would    be  treated.   '  The
health     department     has   outlined   a
system  of  quarantine which ought to
be  effective.    The. public, on  its  side,
must help as much as possible.    Parents should   report, all  cases of sickness  at  once.      Children     should  be
kept   away     from   all   places     where
crowds assemble.    No chances whatsoever  should  he   taken.    In  prevention lies the. coinituiiiily's safety, and
there can be. effective prevention only
by early ���"v.niiinuiion and isolation.
When all is done that can be, there
need be no excessive, alarm. Mortality in poliomyelitis ranges from 14 to
.12 per cent. Several children's diseases lake a greater loll of life. Of
the survivors, a large percentage*,

The Paris Matin voices the complaint of a French prisoner, who by  a lucky subterfuge has come through  from   Munstcr   to   France.  "We have," he says, "witnessed on  April    6 and 7    really  dreadful incidents.      The  refused to go to work in  ies were savagely    beaten    with  the  butt ends of heavy sticks or dragged  by the  feet  until  they  pitifully  gave  in and promised to consent to go. On  a complaint being brought to liis notice,  the  colonel   replied,  'It  will  be  always  so  -whenever  the  men  refuse  to obey.'

When  Tunis  leg-  Big Sisterhood Is Needed to Reduce the . Cost of Living.  An investigation into the increased cost of living attendant on war  conditions, and its direct bearing on  the housewives of Toronto reveals  the following facts:  1. The cost of living, so far as the  housekeeper's bills are concerned,  has risen from 30 per cent, to 40 per  cent.  2. Dealers vouch for thc fact that-  they can scarcely remember a time  when the housewife's money circulated with more freedom.  3. The reasons for inflated prices  are, for thc most part, undoubtedly  legitimate, the chief factors being  transportation, scarcity of labor and  closed  channels  of  import.  4. On the other hand, war-time excuses are brought to bear effectively  on credulous people by a few dishonest dealers and that, in some cases,  shoddy and adulterated goods at  disproportionate prices are on thc  'market.  5. No organized attempt has been  made by women to regulate the soaring prices.  6. A little more arithmetic on the  housekeeper's part in the diffiusion  of the householder's money would  tend to improve conditions at  home.  Naturally enough, the seller is not  disposed to create an impression of  pessimism which would result in the I  shearing off of tra'de. At the same  time, the housekeeper of Toronto is  up against a problem which calls for  hard thought first and then united  effort. Nor is it a question which  can be put off until tomorrow. The  rich woman, who is spending freely  on luxuries and meeting increased  demands is indirectly embarrassing  the woman who finds it a struggle  to pay for the necessities of life. A  big sisterhood is needed which will  stir up home production, home industry, home labor, and thus unlock  the door to steadiness of supply and  price.  To feed the body, to house thc  body, to clothe the body���������these are  the problems which man and woman,  mated together, have to face.

Canada   was   well   on   its   Avay   toward a readjustment of its economic  life when  war  broke  out.    The  final  effects   of     the   struggle     may,   from  necessity,     carry    that    readjustment  further    than  would    otherwise have  been possible.    But in the meantime,!

Fronts, the Reverses Will  Be Harder to Bear ior the German People Than They  Had Been for the Allied Countries    o������������������ ,  For thc first time there has come  from Berlin an admission of the  truth as to thc perilous situation of  the central empires. It is not official, but it passes the censorship in  the dispatches of the wholly sympathetic Karl von  Wiegand.  Mir. von Wiegand says thc central  empires arc like a strong fortress  stormed and assaulted on all sides  by besiegers. The fact is obvious to.  the impartial observer. It is interest-,  ing that in Germany it should bc recognized and confessed.  How* different  is  this  picture  from  that  which     was   painted     not   long  since in  the  columns  of  thc  German  press  and  in  the  articles  of   Messrs.  von  Wiegand and Schutte.    Then we  were   told   in   graphic   terms   of   the  triumphant advance  of Teuton  arms.  Russia,   Serbia,   France   (at   Verdun), j  and Italy each in turn felt the crushing power of thc Kaiser and his ally. 1  Great Britain, we. were told, had been]  robbed of her glory and  strength as ;  mistress   of  the  seas.    The  plans   of j  the entente for a co-ordinated often- ;  sive  had  been  frustrated  by  German ]  skill  and   German  prowess.       France  was   on   the  verge  of  collapse     and  England      w'ould   never      be     ready.  Russia staggered and Italy retreated.  Now   the  scene     changes.     Russia,  Italy,   France   and   Great   Britain   are  hurling     their   strength   against     the  thinning Teuton  wall.     They are  doing   what   the   central   empires   have  never   been  able   to   do���������pressing  an  offensive in  three fronts at the  same  time.    To those who have studied the  progress   of   thc   war  with   intelligent  and impartial interest it has been obvious that sooner or later this would  happen.    But it is not wdiat the Kaiser   expected   when   he   launched   his  armies   against   Belgium,   although   it  is what he has feared since the battle  , of   the   Marne.

In thc German system of repression, special mention must be made  of the asphyxiating coffin. This is  a large tin box in the shape of a coffin, wherein thc condemned man is  placed after being suitably bound  and gagged, and the lid is then hermetically sealed in order to prevent  thc influx of fresh air.  The poor miserable wretch soon  begins to stifle, and finally loses  consciousness, when thc coffin is  opened and the patient is revived by  the administration of a restorative,  and then once more thrown back  into this infernal coffin of torture.

Russell   Smith  Pennsylvania, has made a first hand  investigation of this remarkable  archaeological puzzle, which he describes in the Century in an article  entitled "The Dry Farmers of  Rome."    He says  in part:  "Plainly thc Romans were master  dry farmers to succeed under conditions worse than those under which  we have failed: How did they do it?  Can wc not copy them? Fortunately, we can copy them, for they succeeded by the very simple device of  growing tree crops. Since our dry  | farming has failed with grain crops  on ten inches of rain and upward,  and theirs succeeded with tree crops  on ten inches of rain and downward,  thc lesson is most plain. Wc, too,  should grow tree crops.  "Thc  secret    is  not  hard     lo  find.  The  perennial     plant,   of   which   the  tree is thc highest type,    is    nature's  great  implement  for fighting aridity, j  If there is  deep water  the  tree will  send   its   roots   for  it.     Recently   an |  artesian    well    digger      in    Arizona  brought  up   thc  live root  of a  small  bush from the  feet.

The olive, for instance, is a deep rooter in moist subsoil or a far-reaching, shallow rooter  if   there   is   no   water  in   the   subsoil.  Its leaves are glazed above and hairy  beneath.

War Ends French Duelling  Bloodthirsty     Combatants    Are   Advised to Go to the Front.  The duel is one of the ancient institutions of France that has fallen  into neglect during the war.

Caillaux fired into the air and d'Alliercs  fired  into  thc  ground.  Since that meeting M. d'Alliercs  has been grievously wounded ou another field of honor. Acting as intermediary officer between the firing  line and the command in the rear,  he was hit by a fragment of a shell  that maimed him probably for life.  lt is attributed to the fact lhat so  many Frenchmen like M. d'Alliercs  have shed their blood on the battlefield that the duel has been abandoned, and there is a well-defined sentiment that it has come to an end for  good and all.  Some credit the "sacred union" of  parties and classes with this reform,  while there, are certain proofs that it  is due to popular depreciation of personal conflicts between Frenchmen  while "the Germans are still at Noy-  on." The "sacred union" has not  prevented disputes and provocations.  i Two men contesting for a favorable place from which lo witness a  review of troop/ on lhe.

Thc failure to crush France was  followed by an attempt to eliminate  Russia as an effective factor in the  military strategy of the entente. It  also failed. Then the drive on Serbia  was begun to hold Turkey in line r.s  an ally and to enlist the aid, if possible, of Bulgaria, Roumania and  Greece. It held Turkey, but to small  purposes. It won Bulgaria, but failed to win the others; it left the situation no better than it was before.  Hemmed in between thc allied armies in Greece and th potential hostility of Roumania, Bulgaria can be  of iio real service. Turning again to  the western f;*out, Verdun was assailed, partly in thc hope of a moral  victory and partly in order lo demoralize, the plans for an Anglo-French  offensive. Verdun has proved another failure. It may be taken, but  ils occupation now will have no significant consequence for the fortunes  of either side, and already troops  from thc Verdun front have appeared  in   thc   region   of   thc   Somme.  What will be the effect on the mind  of the  German public when the  German  press can no longer talk of victory?    What will bc. the effect of labored explanations by Major Moraht  and  other  military   experts  as  to  the  reasons  for withdrawal in  France, ii  Galicia   aud    on   the  Austrian   front?  After  two    years  of    advances  here,  there and  everywhere,    reverses will  be    harder    lo   bear   for thc German  people   than   they  have  been   for  the  people   of   the  allied   countries.    Thc  process  of    disillusionment     is     ever  painful   and   disturbing.        How   long  will  the central powers maintain  the  struggle   once   lhe   hope   of   real   victory  is  abandoned?���������Chicago     Evening  Post.  Women    of Germany    Not    Making  Trouble   From   Selfish   *  Reasons  A    Berlin     correspondent    writes:  German newspapers often attack thc  women    of Germany    because,    after  3rears    of    constant    warfare    during  which they have lost husbands, brothers    and    sons,    while    themselves  forced to endure    untold    hardships,  they are   showing  signs    of what  is  termed   weakness.       "It  is   most  humiliating,"     says    the       Muenchener  Neueste  Nachrichten,    "to'see    that  after eighteen months of war, a very  large  part   of   our   women   have   not  yet learned to understand what wartime conditions really mean.      They  are sighing, weeping    and    groaning-,  because   tiicy  can   no   longer   get   all  the  bread    or meat  they    want, because    pastry    made    without butter  docs   not   appeal   lo   their  taste,   and  because    they   feel    disgusted    when  they   have  to   drink   coffee    without  milk.    Once more,  German    women,  jwc appeal to you, nay, we command  i you,  to  stop  these   cowardly  lamen-  ; lations,  to  submit  to  existing condi-  j lions and  not unnecessarily  to  make  j life harder to our brave men who are  fighting in the trenches."  To the unbiased observer   these reproaches directed against the women  of Germany, who have taken up and  carried  their   part   of  the  burden   of  war in a most admirable manner, are  by no means justified. The women of  Germany   have    shown fortitude and  endurance and if they    are becoming  unmanageable    it should    be remembered  that they are  not  rioting  and  fighting the  police and    troops   sent  against     them from  selfish    reasons,  but because they see their babies dy- ,  ing  from   Jack    of  milk  while     their  older  children are  growing pale  and  emaciated,    because    all    articles    of  food, even the most elementary ones,  have   risen   to  prices  which  it  is  utterly impossible    for    theni    to  They fight the police and attack  provision and   baker shops    because  they know that their wealthier sisters  are able lo buy even luxuries and that  thc  farmers,     large  and  small  alike,  are hiding their grain in the hope of  still  higher  prices.  ������\*> IT  ft.
