Then, in the midst of a general discussion upon "The Rosenkavalier,"  in which Lady Acrise shone as a real  authority on the strength of having  heard the opera in Vienna, thc butler  glided into the. room and told Sir  Penywern that a person wished to  speak to him.  Nobody in thc room could have  failed to remark the strong effect  which these simple words had upon  the master and mistress of thc house.  Daphne, who was speaking to her  aunt, stopped short and clenched her  hands in  evident terror.  "A person! What sort of a person?" asked Sir Penywern, with ill-  concealed anxiety.  "A woman, sir. I tried to get her  to come iu tiie morning, but she. was  that persistent 1 thought she. might  come  and    intrude  at  the    windows,  Sir Penywern," explained the butler  as he accompanied his master to the  door, when thc latter had made his  excuses to liis guests.

"She's  in   thc hall,   Sir  Penywern,"  Since     the   tragedy   the.   study   had  been     practically     imusucd,     a   fact  which   the   servants   could  not  fail   to  have remarked,  In the hall Sir Penywern found a  sallow-faced, tearful woman in widow's weeds, who curtseyed humbly  and held her hc.ud on one. side in a  manner which lie found particularly  irritating.

Lady  Acrise was not sorry to  ;a:i     opportunity     of   talking     to  ; niece.  Daphne,  on  the  contrary.  i very   sorry   indeed   io   be   left   alone  : with   her   aunt.     She   rose   from     her  and suggested that Lady Acrise  be  tired after her journey, and  anxious  to   retire  to  rest.  But Lady Acrise stuck tight, and  without moving from thc comfortable couch on which she was reclining, shut her C3*es and said:  "Oh.  yes,  dear,  I'm  horribly  tired,  horribly!    So tired that I really must  j rest  a  little  after  Mrs.  Groves's  try-  iin   dissertations     on  dogs,     before   I  'tackle thc  exertion  of going upstairs  and going  to bed."  Daphne, who was very pale, and  who understood her aunt, guessed  what this meant. There was a silence, and the younger lady -walked,  away to the piano, and began to try  to look interested in turning over a  bundle of new music.  Her aunt's high-pitched, voice soon  compelled  her  attention.  "I suppose it's something lo do  with the disappearance of your servant that has brought Sir Penywern  this tiresome visitor?" she suggested  shrewdly.  Daphne was startled, although she  had known that her aunt saw the announcement of the visitor had caused  them  annoyance.  "Oh, very likely! I'm sure I don't  know. Perhaps he'll tell us who it  was," she said.  Lady Acrise rose as briskly as if  she had not expressed herself so emphatically about her fatigue. ^ Coming  across the room to her niece, she  laid her fan ou her arm, and said  with an air of effusive discretion  which always exasperated Daphne  "My dear, if 1 were you  n't  inquire." j  "Probably he'll tell us without our  asking him," said Daphne, with some  irritation.  "Then he won't tell us thc truth,"  observed thc worldly-wise Lady  Acrise with  decision.  "Oh, yes, he will! I cau trust my  husband," said Daphne, quite sharply, rebelling against the knowledge  that this loquacious aunt of hers had  already fathomed the truth that r.ll  was not well between husband and  young  wife.  "After all," pursued Lady Acrise,  with a significant little*, shrug, "it's  belter that you should hear what  there is to be: herivd from him, instead of from llu*. servants, isn't it?"  "There's nothing to hear," icloned Daphne, quickly. "You surely  don't suppose I should condescend to  listen to gossip from a maid!"  "Wouldn't    you?       Well, you   will  when  you    arc a lilllc    older,"    said  Lady  Acrise,  with   au  amused  smile  of intense condescension.    "My dear,  it's  a very  proper  spirit in a  young  wife to bc content  with  knowing uo  more than    her husband    chooses to  tell  her.    And  it's   quite   delightfully  Victorian,  and  all    that.

"Oh, I don't know! 1 don't know  anything ah out il," said Daphne,  restlessly. Then, recovering her  composure a lilllc under lhe sting of  that Hicreilcsv, arlifu.i-.il smile of the  scailct lips, she. said, with great de-  liberaiUm: "lint 1 do know (hut I  could inisl.

The ordinary right-of-  way fence was covered by the sand,  and cattle could stray out-on thc  track. Snow* fences were used '.o  some advantage, but in a bad season  iiiese   would  be ��������� almost   covered  up.  It*. 1915 a number of grasses, including Bronie, were planted, but  perished from the heat, which is excessive on these exposed sand beds.  This spring, 3,500 cuttings of cotton-  wood (Populus deltoides) aud 1,000  one-year transplanted jack pines were  I planted. An examination made after  the trees and cuttings were in the  ground a month showed that approximately 95 per cent, were making  good progress.  The eottonwod was placed in rows  two and one-half feet apart, the distance between thc rows being four  feet. The jack pine w*as* planted in  rows six feet apart, distance between  the rows being five feet. Thc distance from the last row to the centre  of the track is about 150 feet. All  the planting parallels the track.  It is hoped that the vigorous  growth of the cottonwood will protect the jack pine until such time as  the latter can take care of itself. If  results prove satisfactory, other situations along the company's line will  be planted in the near future. The  unusual amount of rain which has occurred this spring and early summer  has contributed very materially to  the prospects  of success.  For a permanent snow fence which  would grow* rapidly and have sufficient foliage, 6,000 Norway spruce and  15,000 caragatla were planted. The  former were five-year transplants, of  from 20 to 24 inches height, of heavy  sturdy crown and well-developed  root system. The caragana were*  from 30 to 48 inches in height and  about three years of age. The caragana, as well as 1,500 lilacs used in  mixture for snow ( breaks, are from  the nursery of the company at Wol-  seley,  Sask.  The following methods of planting wrerc carried out: Where the distance from the track to the right-  of-way fence is over 50 feet, a "standard" break was put in, viz., one row  of spruce was planted 8 feet apart,  and in front of this, caragana \yere  placed two and one-half feet apart.  Thc distance between the rows is 6  feet. If there was only 50 feet be-  tween' thc track and the fence, one  row of Norway spruce was planted  6 feet apart, or two rows of caragana  4 to 6 feet apart. On several situations pne row of caragana was planted.  Thc open-grown Norway spruce is  thc best tree that can bc used for  snow breaks in Eastern Canada. It  is of rapid growth, is comparatively  free from enemies, and branches  close to the ground. It will require  protection from fire. It is expected  that the Norway spruce will be effective as a snow break alone in five  years.

Caragana  is  activities, not  quick   growth  It    sprouts  Men of thc British Navy Don't Like  Drowning a Sub.  Men of thc British navy have taken  many submarines of thc enemies out  of their wire traps. That they  make these undersea boats over and  send them out as English submarines  to torpedo other craft of the enemy  is taken for granted, though it is not  admitted in the official report. Worcester men may have made some of  thc wire in the traps wiittili have captured thc German and Austrian submarines, and there may 4*������c some satisfaction in that part of the work.  Englishmen whose duty is to take in  the trapped diving boats do not like  thc work. It is the most gruesome  of all thc ghoulish business of the  great war in liurope, they claim.  An English doctor who has been  with the "rescue" crews, tells  story, but he admits there is no sense  of rescue about it, for nothing is done  to raise the submarine from the trap  until all on board are dead and it is  the most horrible of all the deaths of  war, the doctor claims. When a submarine strikes one of the thousands  of wire nets set all around the British Isles, there is no known means of  escape. Every move of the boat  means more mixing up with the enmeshed wires. And the wires also  telegraph the capture to a naval station automatically. Then a destroyer  boat hurries to the trap like a hunter  who discovers that game has "been  caught in his deadfall. The destroyer  takes a position above the submerged  boat. n  And the doctor, is still more graphic in further description. "Then  there is nothing to do but wait,  sometimes for hours, sometimes for  days. Officers and men of thc waiting vessel know what's going on  down in the green depths. They  know that in time bubbles will come  to.-the surface and oil will spread  over the sea. The. destroyer w7aits  for the bubbles, 'death bubbles,' they  call th em, for they tell of death  struggles going on in the submarine."  That may seem simple to people who  never tried it, and of course^an Englishman should not bother about how  much an enemy of his country suffers  in war time.  Still men-are all more or less  human in their thoughts, if not in  their acts, and the doctor says it is  frightful there over an expiring  corps of men who are experts in the  worst kind of warfare practised. They  suffer until the horrible end, and in  some cases it appears that the waiting men safe about them suffer more  and longer until the death bubbles  rise to the top and show througli the  oil, and then thc hoisting crane  comes and lifts up the submarine and  the net and the disentanglement takes  place.  And you may expect to read what  the English naval men find in the  German submarine, On that point  the doctor says: "Seamen who fought  through the malcstrom of Skager  Rac will tell you their story, but no  sailor speaks of the sights seen in a  recovered submarine. Those sights  make strong men weak and drive  sensitive men delirious with horror."  Then there is something about lhe  war which is not allowed even to gel  as far as the censors, It is too horrible for thc observers to talk about,  And sailors arc not as a rule squeamish. L'or that reason and some  others, it is probably not true that  for months, as the cable reports have  it, the German people have been urging the Imperial Government to Urn  the submarines loose to do their  worst with thc peaceful shipping of  all   nations.���������Worcester   Telegram.  History Associated   V/ith tfce  Elizabethan Period  V  When Sir Walter Raleigh decorated his already over-decorated  Elizabethan tunic with a- potato  blossom, people suspected that back  of it all there was a mild form ol  lunacy.  But when he ate the tubers and  also recommended others to do the  same they changed their minds,: that  is they no longer considered it s  mild, form.  The potato belongs to the.same  family of plants as the deadly nightshade, which is extremely poisonous.  We know it to be a common notion  in medieval times that if one member of a family were guilty of crime  the whole lot were eligible, for punishment. Consequently the- potato  condemned.  Could Sir Walter have looked forward two or three hundred years and  have seen his pet tuber taking first  place in popularity among vegetables,  could he have known that in the  twentieth century it w*ould furnish a  quarter of the food eaten by the  white race, he would have based his  hope of posthumus fame not upon his  ability to soothe the somewhat -peppery temper of his sovereign with  shiploads of Spanish gold, but upon  his potato patch.  The potato is put to a greater variety of uses than is any other vegetable. An Irishman once selected  a bushel of them as a duelling weapon, with the result that before naif  were used his antagonist ran away.  At Mrs. Abbott's select boarding  house, they appear in various disguises three times a day. In this  case, of course, they are not used foi  belligerent purposes, this being considered the prerogative of the eggs  and butter.  Many thousands of bushels are  used each year in the manufacture of  alcohol. They are also fed to hogs  and cattle and are an excellent fattening feed.

It was cultivated in Peru and -Mexico  when the Spaniards visited America  in the sixteenth century. In aii  probability these sailors introduced  it  into their own country.  Some say it was introduced intc  Britain by Sir Thomas Herriot and  not by Raleigh as is popularly supposed. However this may be, wc  know that it was the latter who advocated its use as human food and whe  first caused attention to be directed  towards  it.  In 1856 potatoes were introduced.  into Ireland. In that year a plot ol  them was planted near Cork. At  first they met with much opposition,  but by those who did use them they  were, like Niagara Falls, vcryhighly  spoken of.  Shortly after this Queen Elizabeth  became a convert to the use of thi  potato and it was served on the royal  table. Etiquette made it impossible  for anyone to refuse'to partake -.1  thc new dish. But this did not increase its popularity. Several members of the court asserted that tliej  had been poisoned by thc tubers and  had only narrowly escaped death.  Strange to say, the Queen acquiesced  lo the wishes of her courtiers anc  potatoes were not served again.  But though prejudice may cause  delays, its effects are never perraan-  ���������ent. The potato soon became recognized as an important article of food  Opposition tc its use seemed to disappear almost in a single season.

Canada is  taking a prominent part  in  the    international    movement    for  tic protection of w*ild life. A Migratory Bird Treaty between Canada  and the United States is under consideration. Tlirough the influence of  the Commission of Conservation and  other interests, bird reservations are  being* created, where thc -birds may  find safe nesting and breeding places.  The fur-bearing animals of _Nor-  thern and Western Canada are being  rapidly exterminated. This is clearly shown by the present report. Tb  secure their more adequate protection," the Commission is advocating  the amendment of the Northwest  Game Act to place responsibility for  its administration upon thc Dominion  Parks Branch, which already protects  thc animals in the Dominion National Parks.  The future of the fisheries of Canada is dealt with in an able manner  by the highest ail horitics in this  country. That they arc of great  present value is recognized, but there  is also a potential value in our  oceanic and inland waters, which,  upon development, would mean the  creation of new industries. To. meet  this condition, the Commission is  suggesting vocational training and  simple demonstration stations for the  fishermen, that they may take advantage ot the most practical and modern methods of their calling.  The report is replete with illustrations applicable  to  the  subject  mat-  Japanese    Warships    Guarded    B C.  Coast in Early Days of War  Commander Denzo Mori, of the  imperial Japanese navy, in an; interview at Ottawa, talked enthusiastically of the war. The commander  went through the Russo-Japanese  war as a lieutenant and took part in  the famous blockade of Port Arthur.  There is no doubt in the mind of  Commander Mori that the British  navy achieved a great success in the  Jutland battle, despite the claims of  the Germans. "I have not exact information on thc matter," he said,  "but there is no question of a British  victory, and a very important one,  too. One of my friends, a member  of thc Japanese navy, ieft Japan at  the same time as I did. He went to  England and I Went to the United  States. He went down on the Queen  Mary." *  Speaking of thc early days of the  war, Commander Mori said that the  Japanese battleships did much work  of which avc in Canada had not had  the full story, in guarding the coast  of British Columbia and Australia  when the German ships were still at  large. ^ ._  Much of the munitions now being  used on thc eastern front by the Russians was produced in Japan, said  Commander Mori. Just as in Canada  and'' England, new factories had  sprung up, so it had been in Japan,  and the workers were turning out  rifles, ammunition, guns and even  battleships  to aid the Allies.  "Thc Japanese people feel a great  sympathy for Britain and Canada in  this war," he added. "We all feel  sorry at such a terrible war, but have  no doubt as to final victory, and  earnestly hope that it will end very  shortly." *  Warts arc disfigurements that disappear when treated -with Hollo-  way's  Corn  Cure.

The official British statement  describes their recapture of a former  British position over a front of 1,500  yards to the southeast of Zillibeke as  "a gallant and successful assault."  They continued their advantage uni'l  they had woh-vback most of thc  ground around Ypres; they fought  throughout thc night, says the report, "doggedly bombing their way  back to the possession of thc position  they had lost."  The soldiers .of Canada have bulked big for a "colony" in this European war.

"None of your damned business," came from someone in  the ranks. "All right, Canadians, advance."  The Englishman, however, sus- j  pected the Canadians could fight, and  he found it out in the engagements  around Ypres. They were among  the earliest sufferers from asphyxiating gas as a war weapon, when thc  Germans on the first day of its use  endeavored to throw thc Allies'  whole defensive in Flanders into disorder. They held their line after the  French colonials had been overcome  and they battled en for days.

Expecting Too Much  Defeat of Germany May Be a More  Gradual    Process    Than  Many Expect  We see much these days, in newspapers which ought to know better,  about the certainty of the British  army soon smashing the German defence and forcing the German army  back to the Rhine. Such talk does  harm; It serves to rouse hopes and  expectations which must bring.bitter  disappointment and perhaps discouragement.  Wc believe that thc Anglo-French  strategy  in   this   offensive  movement  does    not aim so much    at breaking  through   the   German   defence   as   at  wearing    out the    German resistance  by     continuous   pounding.       On   the  eastern  and western  fronts thc daily  toll  of life is terribly great;  but the  allies are willing to  sacrifice men  so  long as they exact equal toll from the  enemy, knowing that they can stand  the drain longer than he can. Before  the end of the year the Germans are  not unlikely    to    be so embarrassed  lor    want  of reserves that  they  will  decide to shorten their lines on both  fronts    in    order    to    husband    their  strength���������for the shortening of   their  lines  will,  of  course,     increase  their  power  of  resistance.

"You will have to do it, all the  same," Lord Kitchener said, "before  this war is over." In the opinion of  airmen the suggestion was absurd at  that time, but it has come true. Both  by the British and thc French reconnaissances and observation work is  now carried out iu regular battle formation.

Intentionally   or  otherwise   the  contest in Kaslo   took   on   some of  the   aspects  of  a  sectional   light.  Mr. Long came out of  the Creston  Valley with a majority  as large as  the   level-headed Liberals   figured  John Keen would have.    While at  the north end where those in charge  of   thc  campaign   assured   that  if  did   its duty   Mr.  long would be elected,   Mr.   Koon  allowed       unexpeoted        strength  especially   in   his   home   town  of  Kaslo.  While Mr. Long did   not get all  at the Kaslo end  would have ensured Mr. Long's  return. When the gods decree that  a government must go organization  nor personality is of little avail to  stein the tide.  While much as many hereabouts  would have liked to see Mr. Long  returned,    those   who   heard   Mr.  Keen's  address  on   the  11th inst.  look forward   with   assurance that  he will deliver the  goods  expected  of a live M.P.P.    He ha3 the right  idea in his promise   that he would  make it  a print  to  visit  his constituents before every session to get  to know what  they would   like in  the line of legislation,   while at the  close he   would  also  be  around to  give an account of his stewardship.  This is the  first  step in   an endeavor to bring about government  of the people by   the people for the  people, and we fancy   the  member  elect   has   sufficient   backbone   to  present     these   requests     to   the  powers that be and get satisfaction  ���������or   know the   reason   why.    In  support Mr. Brewster  had, carried   ing her mother's death  Peg is reared  this same liquor advertising and  were equally mum in their editorial  columns, and yet the Liberal leader  came into power by the overwhelming majority. It is also worthy of  note that Dr. McG-uire, the Bowser  minister of education, was a few  months before polling the provincial  prohibitior party organizer, and  yet when the ballots were counted  he was the second lowest man on  the Tory ticket���������in spite of his  prohibition and cabinet rank.  In view of the majorities piled  up against cabinet ministers ;and  ornery members alike it were unfair to attribute the Bowser downfall to his newspaper- failure to  rally more strongly and definitely  to prohibition. Premier Bowrser  was up against a combination of  circumstances, all more or less of  his own creation, and even if the  archangel Gabriel had been allied  with him we doubt very much if  j defeat could have been   staved off.  these   democratic  days  mora  .A  more of the electorate are beginning to demand much evidence of  this spirit in their representatives,  and the wise elected public servant  will not fail to heed this sign of  the times, and govern himself  accordingly.

"Peg O' My Heart" is a comedy in  three acts, by J. Hartley Manners and  singularly rich in human and delightful surprises.  Peg is the daughter of an improvident Ti-iHlunan and an aristocratic*  Englishwoman whose family disowned  her ns result of this marriage.    Follow-  by her father.    As she comes into the  story the unusual methods pursued by  Peg's    father   in   her upbringing   is  shown,  but you like hiui  for it.    A  wealthy  unele seeking  to   undo   the  wrongs of tbe   mother   provides  for  Peg's future.    It is arranged that she  shall visit her aunt at the family home  of "the Chichesters in England and the  stern old lady tries to teach Peg the  properties and  make  a lady  of her.  The free untrammelled life  with   her  father has left it's   mark on   Peg and  she has absorbed some of it's humorous  but revolutionary views.    It   is therefore not the easiest task imaginable to  adjust Peg to the narrow conventions  of     English    society-   life. *-Her one  friend is Sir Gerald Adair, known only  to Peg as plain Jerry.    When she fells  in love with Jerry she tries  bravely  enough to get on but the old rebellious  habits cannot be  unlearned  in a day.  Peg's   principal  burden   is her   keen  viewpoint   inherited from .a   line   of  Irish ancestry.    A sense of hujmor is a  treacherous   stopping    stone   to conventional   society.    Peg's   encounters  with these conventions makes   for fun  and the   greatest spontaneity  of  the  story, and as all   terminates   happily  the means serve to increase  the swiftness and  surety  of the play's  movements.  Bouyant yoiith is the most appealing note of the story and coupled with  a splendid simplicity and directness of  purpose, with here and there n tear to  accentuate the interest, reveals the  reasons for tho remarkable hold it has  Upon threatregoere.

Mr. McKinnon figures  on the American side, at ieast. And fchat land in tbe Kootenai valley can  if worth while to the American agri- be reclaimed for $30 per acre and that  culturist it can   only  be a matter of  uPon being reclaimed will  be worth  time till the authorities on this side  wake up to the advisability of findin������*  out whether these same lands in B.C.  are not worth a little more attention,  say, for instance, to the extent of.  seriously undertaking to determine  whether reclamation is feasible or no.  The article is from the Bonner's Ferry  Herald, and reads as follows:  A. CTUcKinnon of San Francisco,  was in this district several days this  week looking oyer various.parts of the  Kootenay Valley in the effort to find  a suitable tract of 40,000to 50,000 acres  which he and his associates might  reclaim and place on the market or  cultivate for their own profit.  Mr. McKinnon, in company with A.  .T. Kent, visited all pa***ts of the Valley,  and, it is claimed, has found the land  desired although it Is cut up by the  winding coui*se of the Kootenay river  which will increase the cost of reclaim-  $800 per acre. He stated that the  soil here was vastly different from the  soil in California disti'icts where be  wae interested, in that the soil there  was a peat and a fire was a dangerous  thing to start on such formation.  He was favorably impressed with  conditions here. Mr. Kent sent to the  University of Idaho to secure statistics  showing resulti of soil analysis in this  valley and when Mr. McKinnon secures  this information he-will at once take  lip with his associates the matter of  buying a large tract in this district.  Mr. Kent believes that there is  every chance to get the California  capiaiists interested in this district  and that if tbey come to invest their  money it will prove a great boom to  the whole country.

Editor Review:  Sis.���������Will you extend to me a short  space in your columns as the only  means of answering, a statement or  inference made by Mr. Winlaw on the  platform at a recent political meeting  here, namely that I had written a  letter of protest against his obtaiding  160 acres of land on the meadows, and  that in doing so I had intended to  convey the idea that it was a protest  on behalf of the Board of Trade by  writing on Board of Trade paper, or  adopting some such subterfuge.  As an .individual I have a legitimate  right to protest by al! the means? iu  my power against his application for  this land, aud his suggestion that 1  should do so in-such a manner is  surely mean and sordid. I wish to  most emphatically deny it, indeed  there was no letter written at all as  insofar as I am concerned the protest  was made personally to Mr. Schofield  and atra later date I had the .opportunity of making a further personal  protest to the government at Victoria.  There is no political significance to  this letter Neither, Mr. Editor, do I  presume to hold a brief for the Creston Valley, but as one who looks for  a greater Creston Valley, as one who  had worked hard and presistantly for  the reclamation project, I did think  that I had a right to protest against  the proposals made by Mr. Winlaw at  that time; and what were they? That  he should be permitted to purchase at  an upset price a Crown Grant to 160  acres of meadow land, embracing a  strm of land on ��������� each bank of the  channel running from thefalse mouth  of Goat Kiver to Duck Creek���������a  channel which would be of the utmost  importance as a drainage canal in any  reclamation scheme; a-nd for why ?  Because, as Mr. Winlaw says, "he has  paid his way," and such another concession bad been granted to a projected saw mill in the past. There  are farmers who have lived as long in  this Volley as Mr. Winlaw has in,the  Province, one and all of whom, have  paid their way. Are not. their claims  as good on this count? Because the  government of the day permitted  another saw mill man to purchase a  tract of this land for mill purposes at  Kootenay Lauding* and thereby committed a wrong and an injustice, Mr  Winlaw would have us commit another wrong by granting his application to purehass aud thereby make  two wrongs into a right.  Ac Mr. Winlaw said the Board of  Trade had never protested against his  application���������on the ether hand they  certainly never endorsed it; indeed  they recommended to the government and Mr. Schofield supported  their reccomendation  that Mr. Win-  Rosslahd trustees received tenqers  as low as"$6'per', ton for the school's  winter supply of coal. . .-_ ���������^���������.- -  Rossland citizens are. being canvassed for funds to purchase an X ray  machine for the Sisters' hospital.

Those who do uot know the variety  used may be sowing grain unsuiled  for their farms. There is very little  excuse for the prevalence of such  conditions. Every fanner sowing an  unknown grain lives within reach .f  some, farmer who grows a known  sort of proved excellence, front whom  seed can be obtained. Farmers wishing to obtain seed for next year  should arrange for it early and  choose a variety which has been  tested aud proved to be good.

Preserves   Necessary   to   Protect  What  Remains  Judging from the rate al which thc  wild creatures of North America are.  now being destroyed, fifty years]  hence there will be no large game  left in the United States nor in Canada, outside of rigidly protected game  preserves. It is therefore the duly  of every good citizen to promote thc  protection of forests and wild life  and thc creation of game preserves,  while a supply of game remains, Every man who finds pleasure in hunting or fishing should be willing tw  spend both time and money in active  work for the protection of forests,  fish and game.  In the settled and civilized regions  ci North. America there is no renl  necessity for the consumption of  wild game as human food; nor is  there any good excuse for the sale  of game for food purposes. Tiie operations of market hunters should be  prohibited everywhere, under severe  penalties.  Thc highest purpose which the killing of wild game and game fishes can  hereafter bc made to serve is in furnishing     objects   to   overworked  men  trips in the  wilds, and the value of wild game as |     The fate  human  food  should  no  longer be rc-!?sly   1S   of  garded  as an  important   factor in  its  pursuit.���������Code     of   Ethics,   Michigan  Wild  Life League.

The  Pritssianization of Germany is here  traced as a process which tends to  deepen thc gloom banging over the  future of a State that might have  been a potent factor in the uplift of  humanity and in the progress of civilization. So far from having been  drawn in too strong colors, the sketch  by Mr, Thayer might have bee-j-made  still more sombre by taking into view  the existence of the Holy Roman  Empire for practically a thousand  years before Prussia experienced her  modern revival, prior to the battle of  Waterloo. From that time on it became an issue between Hohenzollcrn  and Hapsburg which should dominate the- German area in Europe. Bismarck and Sadowa settled-the matter in favor of Prussia, and thus  doomed  both     States, to   a   common  moral   destruction.  Their   coalition  in this unprecedented- double suicide  will always be the greatest of all historical  ironies.  Mr. Thayer has no lingering doubts  as to how' the gigantic struggle is  going to end, any more than he has  questionings as to Prussia's motives  or as to the diabolism of her kultur,  which shuts out alike justice, freedom, pity and chivalry. "Under  whatever name kultur operates, it  tends downwards. The individual  who thinks himself a superman is  likely to end in a madhouse or on  the gallows; thc nation, despotic  King, or hierarchy which substitutes  its own selfish interests for humanity shuts itself out from humanity,  becomes inhuman, revives and worships standards of the Beast, and  beads  straight for perdition."  The part plajred by his own country in this awful contest for supremacy between Prussian kultur and human civilization ��������� arouses in Mr.  Thayer a feeling of contemptuous indignation that finds expression in a  torrent of burning invective. He  tears to shreds all pleas for neutrality in the face of such alternatives as  Germany has presented to America  in the absolutely unprovoked aud un-  mitigatedly brutal treatment of Belgium, and unhesitatingly alleges that  if Germany's course had not been  checked in Belgium and stopped in  Fiance she would have tried to overthrow Great Britain and ov'ernm  America.���������Toronto Globe.  Auli-naiistorm guns cannot dc said  to be novelties in the strictest sense  of the word, for they date back to  1896, when an Austrian named Stie-  ger who had had an opportunity of  witnessing the devastation caused by  hailstorms each year in' districts of  his country, conceived the idea of firing a cannon.shot at the clouds charged with hail, using ,an artillery piece  of special design. ,.' Stieger learned  that as a*, Result of artillery fire, directed against the clouds, the threatened storm moved elsewhere before  bursting, thus saving the crops in the  immediate vicinity of the anti-hailstorm artillery.  A short time later similar experiments -were "carried out in Italy, followed soon after by the. introduction  of this method of protecting grape  vines and cereal crops in France. In  the latter country the use cf anti-  hailstorm guns has been extended  until today they are in general use,  principally in the Bordeaux, Bottr-  goyne and. Champagne  regions.  A representative type of the anti-  hailstorm cannon is composed of  four, main members. First a tripod  which serves to support the carriage  mechanism; second, a brccchloading  mechanism which receives the cartridge and explodes it by means of a  striking or firing pin; third, a smoke  stack or funnel which is a continu-;  ation of the breechloading member  and serves as an outlet for the gases;  and fourth, a sheet of iron measuring!  three or four metres (9 to 12 feet)  long, surmounting the cannon and  passing the roof of the shed that  serves as a shelter for the cannon and  its operators.  Following the discharge of the cannon, there escapes from .the stack or  funnel a whirling shaft of air, which  according to a French authority, M.  Vermoret, brings about certain changes in the atmosphere. The condensation produced by the discharge  modifies the unstable electrical state  of the hailstorms that compose the  clouds most feared by the agriculturists. Whatever may be the merit of  these theories offered in explanation  of the anti-hailstorm cannon, the  fact remains that this odd artillery  is serving its purpose Avell���������Scientific American.  Britain's Meat Supplies  Unlimited Market for Canadian Produce in the Old Country  -  The United Kingdom in the fiscal  year 1914-1915 imported meats having a total value of $311,000,000.  Only $81,000,000 of this came from  British possessions. Out of this latter amount no less than $16,000,000  was for frozen beef from Australia. |  It will bc seen from this statement  that England is to a large extent dependent for her meat supplies upon  countries outside of the Britijh Empire. The Argentine sent no less  than $70,000,000 worth of chilled  beef, frozen beef and canned beef.  Canada contributed little outside of  bacon and hams. Since the jivar broke  out there have been continuous demands for meats of all kinds. Enormous supplies have been sent forward by the Argentine, Australia,  NTew Zealand, the United States and  Uruguay. . Some fairly large orders  have also been placed in Canada.  With a view to studying the situation on the spot and acquiring information for the direction of Canadian production, Mr. H. S. Arkell,  Assistant Live Stock Commissioner,  early in the year went to England  and France, and on liis return prepared a report which is amongst the  most valuable and suggestive articles  in The Agricultural .War Book, 1916.  This report is also contained in Pamphlet No. 19 of the Live Stock  Branch.  The shutting off of the big Russian supply has made a big* opening  for Canadian eggs,., which will continue as long as the w*ar lasts. After  the war, Canada can hold her trade  if we pay special attention to quality  and grading.  Through a lessening of the Danish  imports due largely to German purchasing in Denmark, Canada has been  enabled greatly to increase her exports. The war demands have been  great, and the British workman has  been able to buy bacon more freely.  Canada can hold this increased'trade  if we keep up the quality and carefully look to the method of curing.  The outlook for the feeding of hogs  is promising at the present time.  We produce good beef in Canada,  but the quantity of prime available  for the British market is as yet quite  limited. The home market and the  United States appropriate all this.  After an interesting trial, however,  it has been found that France is, and  will continue to be. a good market  ifor our frozen beef; possibly also  Italy.  This is but a brief reference to  some bf thc chief points of Mr.  jArkeH's survey. It would seem that  'while the war lasts there will be an  increasing demand for meat of all  kinds, for eggs, poultry and dairy  products, particularly cheese. After  the war is over there will be some  re-adjustments that cannot now be  foreseen, but through thc enormous  destruction of livestock in Europe,  and the tremendous drains that have  been made on the surplus, products of  the rest of the world, there must result an enhanced value in live stock  of al! kinds. There may be some  uncertainty as to market conditions  of grain after thc Avar, but not so as  to live stock and live stock products.

"' ���������  Mr. F. Kellaway, secretary to Dr.  Cvddison, Parliamentary secretary of  the Ministry of Munitions, has imparted some facts and figures respecting the organization and resources at the disposal of the country that constitute a phenomenal accomplishment even in these modern  times.  Great Britain, he said recently,  which had throughout been the  Treasury of the Allies, had now become their armory. There arc now  scattered up and 'down the country  some 4,000, controlled firms producing munitions  of  war.  Ninety arsenals have been built or  !y output of .303  To Harness the Tides  Planning to Develop Power from the  Tides  in Bay of  Fundy  The tides are about to be tied down  to labor. At Wolfville, Nova Scotia,  a development company has made a  survey on the water of the Bay of  Fundy with a view of developing a  tide-water project at Cape Split. An  American expert in hydraulic production of electricity is the scientific  guide of that expedition. As Americans are too proud to develop such  tide waters as they have for power,  it  adapted.    Our we  cartridge is greater by millions than;wake  our annual output before the war. tides  There is a certain machine-gun being produced by the hundred every  .week in a factory ordered, planned,  and built during the past twelve  months, which had never been made  in Great Britain before 1915. The  output of guns and howitzers has  been increased by several hundred  per cent.  France, Russia and Italy have been  supplied by or through Great Britain with, many of the most important munitions of war. Many thousands of tons of steel have been and  are being sent to France.  There were 184,000 women engaged in war industries in 1914. Today  there are 666,000. The total number  of war workers in 1914 was 1,198,600.  It had now increased to 3,500,000.  There were 471 different munition  processes upon which women were  now  engaged.  In every branch  of the Ministry of  Munitions   the  best  business     brains  of the country had been placed at the  nation's  disposal  iu  the  great    work  of industrial reorganization.    Some of  these    men    had given    up    incomes!  whichi would make a  Cabinet  Minis-'  ter's mouth water, and wrerc Avorking  like  galley slaves,  week in and week j  out,  without a penny reward.     If by  a  ernrnent  by  business    men,  then   we!  had arrived at a business government  so  far  as  the  Ministry  of  Munitions  was  concerned  may be expected that this sta;  foreign tide may get results to  us up in this country. The  of the Bay of Fundy are as  famous for their ups and downs as  the revolutions of Mexico, if not  more so. A current motor recently  experimented with in the Gaspereau  River, was twelve feet long and two  and one-half feet high, and is reported to have developed power as the  tide rose which reached a maximum  of two horse-power by the time the  machine was submerged. The later  experiments at Cape Split are said  to have shown that motors developed  50 horse-power in a tide current  which ran nine miles an hour. As  the machine is made like a crab, it  takes advantage of the tide going  out as well as coming- in.���������Worcester Telegram.  On the Battlefield  Sensations  x  An Invisible Clock.  A public clock which cau bo. heard  but not seen is one of London's curious possessions. It is in the tower  of St. Mary. Abbot's Church, Kensington, and is lho only public, clock  in the immediate neighborhood. It  chimes the quarters and the hours,  but commits itself no further. It  has no dial, uo hands, no outward  and visible sign of any kind to show  that it is a clock. This eccentricity,.  it is explained, is the result of two  ��������� causes, one aesthetic, the other financial. When the tower was built in  1897 a clock was suggested as an  afterthought, but the architect protested that it would mean the addition of 15 feH lo Ihe lower, and the  ruin of its cherished proportions. A  second point was that thc church,  having bnt slender fund**, eould not  nlt'ord a clock with a dial. A compromise was arrived at by installing  the works, of a chiming clock in the  belfry without  dial or hands.  "How long did you stay in your  I..;-!   place?"

Von Bcthmann-Holl-  weg has even said, that Germany  being* willing to make terms, the Allies are responsible for all thc slaughter and destruction lhat occurs from  this time forward. This is all talk  and bluster.

It is the kernel of German history and the basic principle of German policy that no promise is binding if in the eyes of thc war lords  tlu: immediate national interests seem  to demand otherwise, As is pointed  out by most reputable historians, it  has been the practise of Prussia and  the Hohenzollerns from ../time immemorial to violate their plighted  troth and even to enter into treaties  with the intention of breaking them  as soon as it became convenient.  lt    will  require    something    more  lliau   the   promise   of  a      lJetbniaun-  Hollweg or the Royal hand of a 1-1 o-  heu/.ollern    to  assure  thc    Allies  of  Germany's pacilic intentions,   As ruled today.

Of these only ?.l were lost  or seriously damaged by enemy vessels.  "But lo effect this security to merchant shipping," says the " Admiral,  "I regret that over 4 per cent, of  our patrol vessels have been sunk  and the lives of 77 officers and men  lost to the nation."  The Admiral further notes that the  patrol assists in the protection of the  flank of all sea transports to and  from the British ar-my in France, and  that this vast transport: has been so  thoroughly safeguarded that not a  single life has been lost during the  sea  passage.  ���������m������������������wi.������������������   ������������������. i   m���������   n   linn  A Slight Misunderstanding  Thc girl's father, a gruff, stout old  fellow, came into the parlor at 9.30  with his watch iu his hand.
