CRESTON, B. C, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1916  No. 37-38  400 Cows' Cream  Needed in 1917  Haying heard so much to commend  and so little of condemnation of the  Cranbrook creamery and the gentlemen in charge of it it was but natural  that during a few days' stay in Cranbrook last week that The Review  man should drop in to get some first  hand information on an industry that  is destined to play an important part  in the development of the Creston  Valley.  On entering the building the very  first thing that appeals to a visitor is  the absolute cleanliness that prevails  throughout the plant, coupled with  .splendid ventilation and a plentiful  supply of light considering the plant  is in a rented building���������a building, by  the way, that combines a good location for the retail trade there is sure  to be in the way of buttermilk and  ice cream, as well as being otherwise  reasonably well adapted for the business used for.  The plant, while not all new, is  pretty thoroughly modern and taken  all round pretty well fills the bill for a  pioneer creamery as this plant may  be codsidered. Not including the  boiler the plant represents an investment of almost $2,000. The churn  has a capacity of 700 pounds of butter,  m\ "91 ������ L *-\   * 4- *4- *  anii win usatiUiaCuUrc ouas ^uani,iuy in  from 30 to 40 minutes. This year the  cream supply was never large enough  to make more than three churniogs  each week necessary, owing to an  adequate storage plant, the cream vat  now in use having a capacity of 250  gallons.  The. plant was installed late in the  spring and it was almost the middle  of May before manufacturing commenced. ; In June the output of butter was 3298 pounds, along with 460  gallons of ice cream. In Jmiyr4094  pounds of butter were turned out as  well as 671 gallons of ice cream, while  for August the figures were 3244  pounds of butter and 592 gallons of  ice cream.  For the three, months, we are told  the average price for cream was 3! for  sour and; 34 cents foi* sweet cream.  These prices, of course, do not include  the price for special cream used-in  the making of ice cream, which was  higher and uniform throughout the  season. The amount paid to patrons  these same months ran $011 in June  $1245 in July, and $1180 in August.  Theso amounts were distributed  among some 40 patrons and represent  the cream from not more than 160  cows, and not all of these were from  B.C., either, as Manager Ammerman  figures that at least $400 of this went  to a shipper from Cowley, Alberta,  who was also shipping cream for some  of his neighbors,  Of these 40 at least a dozen wero  from the Creston Valley, Fraser Bros.  Stocks & Jackson, George and John  ���������tlobden. I*. G. Ebbutt. D. Loarmohth,  Geo. Cartwright, A D. Pochin, A. N.  Cooling, J. P. Moore, D. G. Lyon, M.  Little, John Arrowsmith and a few  others shipping regularly all sonoon.  While all are well pleased with the  cash returns and prompt payments  twice a month, Fruser Bros wero  particularly fortunate in that their  cream always camo iu sweet and wnw  used for Ice cream, thus netting llntm  tho very top pri������������n,  Somo idea of tho excellence of the  ico cream turned out by the firm can  bcHt bo gloanod from tho August Hales  which ran to 320 galloon in Cranbrooa  alone, while Crouton consumod 85  gallon** aud a llkeumount way ublppcil  ono firm in Fornio, All tlio points on  tho Crow were ntting ice cream and  enough of It could not lie manufactured to supply the demand.,  Kootenay Brand biitter mado by  the firm had an equally favorable  reception, and at no time after tho  biUi-jr had bueii introduce!.] couhl  enough bo made to fill thc order*, tho  firm woro offered.

He would be  only too happy to have a steady supply of cream from 400 cows. He believes there is a market for triple the  quantity of butter turned out this  year, as'well/ ������s about 4000 gallons of  ice cream more or less at points contiguous to Cranbrook.  When one  considers   the   limited  amount of cream there was available  Red Gross Ladies  Have Banner Year  this year along with the high price  that patrons rect ived for it and the  regularity with which remittances  came, pretty conclusive evidence is  furnished that the creamery was  splendidly handled in every department this year, necessitating, we feel  sure, considerable extra and at-all-  hours-of-the-day-and-night work on  the part of the employees.  A creamery cannot successfully  operate on 160 oows for very many  seas.-iis. Twice that number would  be about right. For a starter the  smaller number will suffice, but now  that Mr. Ammerman has demonstrated his ability to make a brand of but- J xreison  ter the people cannot get enough of, .        .-������������������ .   ..,..-..���������        ..   _    .  to say nothing of his willingness to | same Ratifying increase. .Owing  buckle in and keep operating costs' to a shortage of space this issue  down to the minimum, he and the The REVIEW is compelled to hold  industry be is developing are-worthy over till ._next week the detailed  of a more hearty support  from   all  reporfc of the various officials.  There was quite a large turnout  of the workers on Tuesday afternoon for the annual meeting of the  Creston Red Cross Auxiliary,  which was presided over by the  retiring president, Mrs. H. Lyne.  Although the society's year is  only 11 months this term, as compared with 12 a year ago, the  statements submitted by both the  treasurer and the secretary show  that the auxiliary was more active  than ever before.  The total cash intake was   $554,  which is  almost $50 higher  than  the 1915 figures, while, the amount  of work and supplies^ forwarded to  headquarters,   shows    the  nounce the marriage of their daughter,  Kate, which took place on Thursday  last at Creston, to John Cameron of  Cranbrook. where they will reside.  Mr, Miller, assistant provincial  assessor, Nelson, paid this section an  official, visit the early part of the  week.  C. Blair and his gang of haymakers  are still busy putting up fche --fodder,  having shifted quarters from the  Reclamation Farm to a point nearer  Port Hill. They expect to be on the  job for a few days yet.  interested in the dairy business���������and  in this connection we in the Creston  Valley are as vitally concerned as  those ranching nearer the lacation of  the factory.  Erickson  Sergt. Turner of the internment  camp stuff, Morrissey, arrived home  on Tuesday to look after his apple  picking He expects to ship at least  300 boxes this year.  Bert. Boffey left the latter part of  the week for Calgary, Alta., where he  will spend the winter.  Latent word from' Cranbrook is to  ���������tbe effect that Gerald"JCiaigie. who is  laid up there with a serious case of  appendicitis, is.cbrning along fine, but  will hardly be home for a couple of  weeks. Bob Maxwell's injured arm is  also 'mendiug as well as could be expected and it now seems sure he will  iii time regain full use of it.  Milt Beam, who has been one of the  C.P.R. fire guards at Bull River this  season, was home for a few days the  latter part of the week.  J. M. Craigie loaded out a full car  of Wealthy apples here the fore part  of tho week, which were shipped to  Saskatoon, Sask. From present appearances he will haye another 1200  or 1500 boxes to market, making the  ranch'the third largest shipper in the  Valley.  W.

There was a pause. He was anxious  for her to ask more questions about  the woman, so that he might find out  whether she knew anything about  her. The smallest circumstance connected with the tragic mystery which  involved ids wife was of deepest interest to him.

Sir  Penywern, having failed to get any  help from his wife, resolved to drag  Lady Acrise into thc business, in the  faint hope that she might presently  bc able to 'throw some light on the  affair, through her knowledge of her  niece's  character and history.

This little lesson in worldly wisdom frightened her niece a good  deal.

Great Britain has, in fact, provided  an army, and navy personnel of nearly  5,000,000 and has trebled thc personnel of her fleet. Could any other  nation in the world furnish over 4,-  000,000 men on a voluntary basis, as  Great   Britain   has  done?  Americans should understand that  it is not alone in the field of battle  that Great Britain has proved its  capacity for organization. It has  proved it in the civil field. It has  nationalized thc railways of thc country and has protected the regular  dividends. It secured the sugar crop  of the world at thc very beginning  of thc war, through which sugar is  cheaper today in Great Britain than  in thc, United States, and at thc same  time has got out of it a revenue of  nearly $34,000,000.  It rescued the British people from  being done by meat trusts by seizing  all ships which could carry chilled  meat and, having the ships, could  get her meat on fair terms, and has  done  so���������50,001)  tons   a   month     for  of the French power of resistance be  paralyzed shortly? . Do not indulge  in vain prophecies. That torn country still carries the colors of unbending determination and  energy.  "Britain has great embattled armies in the field. Both Western powers have said that their present offensive is not their highest^ effort  and according to our experience, a  still more furious offensive will -follow. No, the earth is not to be divided yet." .

These mines arc  formidable engines of destruction,  and in order that they may bc seen  to advantage two of them have been  placed on the deck of the submarine  with  their  sinkers aiid  framework.  They arc very fine ^ pieces of  mechanism, and it is estimated that  each of them would cost about $800.

Aid For Farmers In  Devastated Areas  Russia's Growing Greatness  w nidi  Canadians to Organize to Kelp Belgians, Poles and Serbians  Last year the agricultural relief of  'he Allies committee was formed in  England under the immediate patron-  Age of the King and thc. presidency  oi thc Duke of Portland. The fund  svkich is being raised is for the purpose of assisting in tile restoration of  agriculture in thc countries of our  vilies which have been devastated by  ���������var.  The British farmers desire to-help  mese people to make a fresh start. A  general committee thoroughly representative of British agriculture has  i>een formed, and county agricultural  societies have unanimously formed  .-ommittees to arrange for contribu-  uons.

Through  it  Canadian farmers and'others will be  .iblc to give very much  needed and  very highly    deserved   help  in  prac-  sical and economical     ways.   __ After  correspondence,    the  Duke   of   Port-  Sand,  on behalf  of  the   British   committee; cabled inviting Dr. James W.  Robertson    to    visit     England    and  France to see at first hand the character of the needs and to discuss the  -neans    by, which  Canadian    farmers  and  their  families  could  most  effectively and advantageously help  their  brethren in this time of their distress.  The    uemocracy    oi    Jpuissia  Has Made Such  Wonderful  x- regress  Russia seems to be coming out of  thc war verj* big. One reads that she  is to have the Dardanelles. It is prudent to wait and see, but as to her  being the greatest power in Europe,  surely it is better, at least, that the  dominant power of the Continent of  Europe should be one that has already a sufficient estate than one  that must incessantly conspire to row  its neighbors.  After Germany's opening exhibition in Belgium and Northern France  it takes some assurance for a pro-  German to speak of "Russian tyranny  and cruelty." The Cossacks were  cruel in East Prussia; the Russian  bureaucracy has been cruel; but the  Russian people are not by nature  cruel. What they will be in another  generation one would like to live and  see. Dr. Rauschenbusch argues that  success in the war will strengthen  thc Romanoffs and Russian autocracy, but that conclusion' will not be  generally accepted. It is the Russian people���������democracy in Russia ���������  that has made such wonderful progress in the last year and made observers feel that, there is but one  country on earth, if any, in which  the. prospects for human life are better than in Russia.  It will be impossible to get iip any  effectual fright about Russian domination until the fear of German domination is thoroughly allayed. -��������� Life,  New York.  Looking Into the Sky  Physical   Comfort    Combined   With  the Enjoyment of the Beautiful and Mysterious  It is pleasant to lie on the earth  and look at the sky. The dreams you  have had on the bank of the creek  where you caught no fish and where  you watched the sleepy clouds in the  blue through the leaves that hung  close above you are pleasant even as  memories. Sometimes the leaves  danced and you could hear tho fairies whispering among them; sometimes the leaves were still and you  knew that a fairy was peeping at you  from behind each one. You believed  in fairies then���������at least you believed  in them a little���������but you were beginning to dream of things beyond,  things more real and more mysterious, and it was when you looked into  the sky through the leaves that you  best understood youi- dreams. Even  more pleasant perhaps are the memories of the hours when you lay on  the hill among-the daisies and look-(  ed straight into the sk}r. There were  no dreams then���������at least no tangible  ones. You were just a part of it all  ���������of the endless blue and the sunshine and the far travelling clouds,  and the memories make you���������or at  least a little of you���������still a part of  them.  And so it is pleasant even now to  lie on the earth and look at the sky.  It is a primitive sort of pleasure,  but in it the sense of perfect physical comfort is combined/with the enjoyment of.the beautiful and the  mysterious, and we can ask no more  of enjoyment than that.���������The Indianapolis  News.  ary  Under tbe control of the Department of Agriculture of Ontario���������Bstabliflhcd 1853  Affiliated WHa Tke Unhrerwiy of Toron'o.

A Plymouth Brother, who appeared at the Essex appeal tribunal, made  the extraordinary statement that he  had not read anything about the war.  "Do you mean to say that your  country's affairs do not interest  you?" asked Mr. C. Hope, K.C.  "Not.its warfare," was the reply.  "Do you know what is happening  to   England?"    "Only   by  hearsay."  "Do you know England is in danger of invasion!  In An Enemy Trench  Twenty-five Feet Below Ground  With the Germans  What life in an enemy trench is  like may be gleaned from the personal description of a Tommy's brief  taste of captivity in one: "There  were eight or nine other Englishmen,  all ,wounded, lying there; an' I was  in front; right in the mouth of the  dug-out, where I could see the  trench, where a lot o' Bodies was  silling, smoking cigarettes an' talking in their own lingo. By an'.bye a  German officer comes along. I knew  he was coming, by the Way those  chaps all jumped an' dropped their  smokin' and talkin'. They came to  attention pretty smart; I'll say that  for 'cm. The officer spoke to the  sergeant and we were all dragged out  of the du^-out and taken down thc  trench to another one; down two  r,?.ssa������'cs stid ?. lot of ster>s* must na  bin five an' twenty feet down, I  would say. It seemed the officer was  put out at us bein' left where we  could see anything. Well, there was  no fear of us seein' much where they  put us then.  That was in the afternoon, as it  might be this afternoon. And all  that night, and all the next day, and  the day after that we lay there; and  all that passed our lips was some  mighty dirty water in a jar that was  given us by a tall Boche that was on  sentry in the passage, the first morning.  One feller said it was the  Boches  blowin'   of  us   up.     But  I   saw  we'd  got no sentry, an' somehow I reckoned  it  must  be  our  boys back  again  in  Contalmaison.    I'd 've bin out of  it quick if it hadn't bin for my knees.  There    was    a young lance-corporal  next   me,   wounded   in   the   shoulder;  very sick an' queer he was.    I asked  him to  get along  the passage a bit,  an' give a shout to tell we was English there..    He got out all right;  a  plucky lad, because two more bombs  burst after he started.   An' nex' thing  we knew there was a young English  officer    down among    us, an'    half a  dozen  of our boys after him.       My  God, sir, we was glad to see his face! I  I tried to come to attention an' salute  him.    Lord, I'd 've saluted his boots  or his cap, if" I'd seen 'em empty on  the    ground!      It makes    you think  when    you've    seen    Boche  officers.  Then when you see one of ours you  know what an officer is; an' what a  gentleman is.

The hostess,  who hadn't been near a farm for 20  years, thought that thc guests would  ride to thc party in ox-carts and wear  overalls or other working clothes.  To her great surprise they came in  automobiles and wore, regulation full-  dress clothes. All of which goes to  show tliat it is a great compliment  to bc called a farmer nowadays.

On the score of competent  cabinet material Mr. Brewster has  enough and to spare to make up  three or four capable administra  tions. This will make it a bit  embarassing when he comes to  sift down to the six or seven  required. In the lot, however,  there are those who from practical  experience and . proven administrative ability should have the  preference.  If   these,    and   these   only,   are  enrolled in   the   cabinet  squad the  new premier need not fear the after  effects.    While many seem to have  the call   only  few   can be chosen,  and if these are gathered   from the  various   districts   of the   province  without fear or favor the great big  general public will   not   be slow in  signifying its approval   of the first  and one of the   hardest   tasks   thc  premier-elect   will   be   called  upon  to perform.

And where is the money coming  from to defray the expenses of this  new election? The finance voted  for the balloting on Sept. 14 will  all have, been expended, and as the  old legislature died a natural death  in March last it cannot be re-convened to vote fresh supply even for  an election.  In these and other directions a  favorable verdict on the writ  promises to give rise to some amusing complications���������or at least it  would seem that way to tho  amateur politicians hereabouts.  Possibly T. M. Edmondson can  learnedly elucidate the situation.  Some thing from even this student  of the law and the prophets would  bo read with interest by morn than  a few.  are not so much the better for  Creston; the visitors wont have the  names of so many fruit districts to  get mixed up on.  Beyond the expense,   perhaps, of  floor space whereon   to  make   the  display  there should   be  little expense attached.    Cars of apples are  going   to   that  point  every  week  and it would be   possible   to  place  the show fruit in one of these cars.  At   Calgary   Mr.  McTaggart, the  prairie fruit markets commissioner,  would, no doubt, undertake  to see  that the fruit was displayed   to the  best advantage, while  at  the close  of the fair there would be no trouble  selling the exhibits at a little better  than market price.  Creston is���������or claims it is���������producing the very best apples that  go out of B.C. Here is not too bad  an opportunity to demonstrate this  to the consumer, and most likely  start him or her asking for Creston apples and not B. C. apples as  is largely the case .at present.  The prairie buyer has a good  memory for quality fruit. They do  not ask for American strawberries;  the Hood River berry has made  such a name for itself that nowadays the buyer specifically demands  the Hood River berries���������and the  wise retailer makes it a point to  carry them in stook.  When we have the same buying  public asking for Creston apples  and Creston berries so much tho  better for the Valley's prosperity.  This Calgary fnir offers quite a  good opportunity to feature Creston, and at such small cost that it  will be a bad bit of business to lot  the chance slip.  enough to accomplish that���������even  if two thirds of it went to the  Valley candidate.

Judging by his letter he  takes as kindly to the art of shooting  Germans as he did' in teaching the  Creston young idea how to shoot  Writing on September 4th to a friend  here he says:  "Well, we have arrived at the  scene of action at last, and have had  our taste of the trenches.

Some dropped on the abode we were in and  shook it pretty badly hut did not  penetrate it, though I was moving  along a trench  the other   day when  eome of them dropped really too close  for comfort.

As   The   Review understands   it,  each of the five districts will  have a  gathering   prior  to  the   annual convention that  is held at "Victoria while  the   house   is in session.    At   these  district    gatherings    the   resolutions  from the individual institutes  will be  considered    and    merged    into    one  harmonious whole, so that at the big  provincial conclave  there  will be but  five sets of resolutions to  dispose of  instead of a string of   them f ronr each  Institute in B.C.  as at present.    It is  more than likely also that each  district will send a  nominal  number of  delegates���������in proportion to the number of institutes in the district���������thus  ensuring   a representative but   more  compact assembly   at Victoria.    This  move is deemed advisable in  view of  the  government's   present   policy   of  only p.aying delegates' railway fare,  instead of all expense as  in  the  past.  To these district get-togethers   each  institute  will have  to stand its delegates, expenses.  A committee was appointed to go  into the matter of establishing a cooperative creamery at Nelson. The  delegates from the lake points and  further west felt the present Nelson  butter factory people were not paying  a fair price fo** cream���������in fact the  price offered was generally too low to  make dairying remunerative. In this  proposition Creston is not included.  Under the present train service cream  shipping to Nelson is out of the  question while Cranbrook is within  easy shipping distance.  President Cook's statement as to  operations of the Creston institute  almost took the gathering's breath  away.

Referring to German press reports  that the present offensive had made  irreparable inroads upon the Allies'  stocks of ammunition, Mr. Montague  said it was true that the last month's  expenditure of ammunition was more  than double the amount than would  have been considered adequate eight  [months ago, and that in the week  preceding the July offensive the  amount of ammunition consumed exceeded the entire British production  during the first eleven months of war.

The artillery had during the recent  fighting, acquitted itself to the entire  satisfaction of the British army and  had won the praise of the French  Ministry of Munitions. This statement, he added, was particularly true  of the heavy guns and howitzers;  Mr. Montague said that half of the  engineering resources of the country  are required for the navy. Very  shortly Great Britain, he said, would  have provided' for her own require*  ments and be able to devote herself  exclusively to the wants of her allies  in regard to machine guns. Already,  he said, she was sending large amounts of guns and ammunition to her  allies; was sending to France one-  third of her production of shell steel  and transferring to her allies metals  necessary for munitions.  The production, of heavy shells,  said' the minister, was now 94 per  cent, greater than in 1914. There was  now being produced in four days, he  declared, as much howitzer ammunition as was produced during the  whole of last year, while there were  being turned out every month as  many heavy guns as were in existence when the Ministry of Munitions  was formed, and this number would  soon  be  nearly  doubled.

When he  built a powerful, but light-draught,  steamer for thc Peace River, in  Northern Alberta, at a cost of $250,-  000, old half-breed servants of the  Hudson's Bay Company, and old-  timers, looked upon the undertaking  ���������as ridiculous. They predicted lhat  she would never reach Fort Vermillion, and others asked, "Where is the  trade by which she is to pay a dividend?"  Her first voyage, a few weeks ago,  was a record in speed and for handling merchandise. Simultaneous, how-  .cver, with her departure from the  Peace River Crossing, Mr. C. F. Law,  Lord Rhondda's chief representative  in Canada, announced that the great  amalgamator bad built thc steamer  to bring oil down from the upper  reaches of the river, and to meet new  traffic that would arise when he had  tapped the potash deposits that he  believes arc "somewhere up in the  North."  it should not be assumed, however,  that Lord Rhondda is taking a leap")  in thc dark by these developments.  He is. following advice based on thc  reports of eminent geologist.-*, mineralogists, and Government reports,  all of which he has studied in con-,  fcrciicc with lhe best men that he  could gather around hiin.

This saline irrigation consists of a solution of warm water  with from five to ten per cent, of salt  in it.

Surgical dressings���������lint,  bandage and wool ��������� arc not being  used, except, of course, during the  transportation of a wounded soldier  from the field of battle, when his  wound must bc covered up in the old  way with lint and antiseptics.  "Take, for instance, the case I have  here of a soldier'who has a severe  shrapnei wound in the knee. You  sec that, while the bedclothes are  arranged in the usual way..[over the  upper part of his body, a sort of  'cradle' is formed over the lower part  so as to keep the wound quite clear  from any possibility of contact with  the coverings. Here the salt water  is trickling down all the time, drop  by drop, from thc glass tube on to  thc wound, running day and night  without intermission, and carrying  off the/poison from the wound and  helping to cleanse and heal  it."  The "saline irrigation" undertakes  to clean up and heal most sc-plic  wounds in three or four days. The  salt penetrates the scat of the poisoning and carries it off.  Sir Almroth Wright says of it:  "Thc salt draws out from the infected tissues thc lymph which has spent  all its power of resistance to the  poisonous bacteria, while it draws  into the tissue from the blood stream  and each of its own impulse, moved  by its own sentiments of patriotism,  without ...pressure, without persuasion, sent of its best in men and resources to help in the common cause.  No greater triumph of our race had  ever occurred. (Cheers.) It was said  the other day, perhaps with some  truth, that we had not powers of organization of which more artificial  communities (laughter) had shown  themselves capable; but there was a  natural growth which, if born of the  best things of the human spirit,  might produce better results than  any mechanical organization, , and  such a natural growth was jthe British Empire. German writers of great  repute and great learning, deeming  themselves inspired by thc profound-  est philosophical wisdom, had with  an air of triumph announced to the  world that the true bond of union  which kept Germany together was  not thc representative assembly  which Germans elected to meet in  Berlin, but the German army. In  one sense it might be said at this  moment that one of the bonds of the  British Empire was thc British army,  but in a very different sense.  The   British  army   was   a   bond   of  empire" because it  was spontaneously  co.nposcd of elements of each of the  self-governing Dominions, not  fulfilling their    own conceptions    of their  national destinies, but���������whether from  Australia, Canada, South Africa, New  Zealand,     India,    or  wherever    they  came  from���������forming an army united  with one will and purpose.  (Cheers.)  He did not trouble his head much,  especially at a moment like this, with  the future constitution of thc empire.  He   did   not   ask   himself   whether  it  would bc wise, and if wise,  easy, to  modify    thc    constitutional  relations  between thc several parts of the empire.    Hc looked    forward    to    that  problem   with     confidence,     because  whether wc changed the constitution  of  thc  empore or  left  it as  it  was,  whether if wc  changed the constitution we did so in a far-reaching sense  or  otherwise,  it must always  remain  the fact that Ave were bound together  essentially    and    fundamentally    because   all   shared   one   common   ideal  of freedom, liberty and good government.    That   was   the   true  basis   on  wliich empire was founded, and if wc  were altogether now cirgaged in thc  picfcnt   tremendous   struggle   it   was  because wc were animated by a sensj  that wc were, sprung  from  one  language,    and, broadly    speaking,    one  set of laws���������one spirit of law in any  case���������had one idea of political  freedom, and were determined that these,  should not be broken into by another  nation,  however well  organized,  and  that what wc meant to preserve for  ourselves wc would preserve also for  other  nations.    (Cheers.)  What a Salient Is  In reports and records of thc war  there arc few words more frequently  met vijth than "salient." Yet as a  noun it is quite modern, and is only  to be found in the most modern dictionaries, but as an adjective it was  in use centuries ago in its original  sense of "leapinf**." Now that which  leaps is prominent, and so this became the secondary meaning, Then  as that which projects is also prominent,  a  projecting  angle  was  called  She: You promised to buy me" a  i mark of' seal-de in jacket,  hin gratitude to Divine Providence | lie: Yes, my dear, I did, but I  (or liir. deliverance hc made a con-(have had such it bad day in the mar-  trib'H'on to Red Cross and other Jcet that I could not afford to-buy  fund**  of t'KOrvirt !���������"<*���������<   '"-"���������   rr.  :���������;;:....!,    ".. .  found it too long, and, dropping the  "angle," gave us the new term With  which wc arc all familiar.  a   salient     anr/lc,  and    thr*  rvpr ���������������<*-''ion  [lie lymph wliich it, thc enemy oi llicj,,asscd into  use  by  military authori-  |microbe. tics.     Short   as   it   is,   however,   they  On the    other hand, Sir    Almroth "  ' ' .    . .        .  argues that thc ordinary dressing inclines to become a barrier to the  free discharge of lymph from thc  wound, though it is contrary tc truth  to say that iuiim-s allow dressings to  stick and cause bleeding on removal.

"Well, there's a good many of them  of course. Seeing the whole lot in a  narrow funnel, as you do here, it  must seem tremendous. You can't  move hand or foot on the western  front without casualties. .. But I'm  bound to say it wasn't the number,  but the fewness of them that impressed me out there. I mean, of  course, for thc fire we've had to face.  What do you think?"  He turned to the adjutant.  "I think the proportion of casualties is pretty much the same as it's  been in all the offensives on this  front; but thc balance will prove totally different. This war is just buying and selling; $250,000 is a lump of  money to spend; but in business,  people don't worry about the laying  out of $250,000 if they see a good and  st-.fe return for it. It's always a good  investment if you can buy sixty or  seventy, or a hundred thousand for  it, isn't it."  The major said, "Perhaps you've  heard of those documents found on  prisoners, sent by German companies in the line to their headquarters  in thc rear; begging for reinforcements: 'Company reduced to nine  men and one officer, battalion reduced to 20 men and 3 officers,' and that  sort of thing. That's worth paying  for, you know. The whole thing is  very different from Loos; I know  that. We're getting an infinitely better run for our money.  "Wc arc gaining in ground; but  that's a small thing to thc enormous  gain in man power and morale. You  take it from mc, our new armies can  stand a lot of this, a deuced sight  more of it than Germany could possibly stand. Our chaps arc in better  heart today than they've ever been  since 1914.  "In thc early days it was a case  of pitting flesh and blood against  metal. Thc German had the overwhelming advantage of us at every  turn, and in every mortal way; except in the spirit of his men. But  the boot's on the other foot now, and  will bc still more so when we've got  a few more German positions. For,  in addition to everything else, mind,  they had us beaten out of sight in  the matter of relative positions, fields  of fire, cover from fire, field of view,  and all that. But thc greatest difference is in thc matter of guns a.it'  ammunition,  "Why, it wouldn't worry mc much  if our casualties were twice as heavy  as they are; no, three or four times."  "Nor me. Not a bit," agreed the  adjutant. "We all know there must  be big fighting and lots of it, to finish this war; and there can't be big  fighting without proportionately big  casualties. On the basis which we're  fighting just now, 1 wouldn't care if  our casualties were ten times as numerous; and do you know why? Because, on thc present relation of gains  to losses, of what wc sell to what  we're gelling for it; ii our casualties  were ten times what they are, thc  war- would be over before the summer is over and Germany would be  down and mil."  "And I'll tell you another thing,"  said the other officer. "A rare lot of  these present cut-amltics will bc lighting tit again within a month from the  time of lauding; and you watch their  smoke when they get out again."  .JJMIJJtVy,  We    admit  that    we    are  <uipersti-  tious, but  not  to  the  extent  of nrc-  Mv.MJ.Ji,    I.V.CHV.    uujmjjj    iu    UOltCCII.
