 nov ?r  Vol. VIII.  CKESTON, B. C, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1916  No. 45  Rev. D. M. Parley of Fernie will be  in charge of the Methodist service at  Deer Lodge on the afternoon of Sunday, December 3rd.  John Huscroft has already a   gang  <>f fifteen men  at work   on   !o  operations at Camp No. 3.  Irtanrint*  -���������������irt-'-e,  Sirdar  Otto Johnson, who has been working at Wardener for the past few  months, returned this week, and will  be with Mr. Samuelson forthe winter.  The school flag was at half-mast  Monday and Tuesday out of respect  for Mrs. Olmstead, whose death  occurred at an early hour Sunday.  W. G. Wearmouth has just completed something that looks the best  yet in the way of a basket hayrack  for Campbell Blair for Reclamation  Farm use.  Messrs. Swanson and Mauberg, who  have been in Minnesota for the past  fewmonths, returned the latter part  <������f the week.  A single cutting band saw is being  put in at the mill to replace the rotary  now in use.  Creston visitors this week were  Mrs. Tuohey on Monday and Mrs.  Loasby on Wednesday.  The schoolhouse being rather poorly heated on Tuesday night the usual  iHsorsilily Bssgiiah -Church' service was  held at the home of C. M. Loasby.  Miss Gray, who has been on the  boarding house staff for some: time,  left a few days ago for the east, intending to return to the Old Country.  The express is now leaving for the  Landing a half hour later than during  the summer. The new schedule went  into effect on Monday.  Sirdar was represented at** the Belgian Relief concert on Wednesday  last at Cieston, Mr. and Mrs. Swanson going up on their casey jones.  The Erickson Sunday School  is to  he revived-once more, this time under  the supervision of Miss Candy, who is  spending the  winter with her sister  Mrs. Thurston.   ...'..���������  Xj/Qviaio  iClO Oil  OiiUUlUllj'  .V-  River  Mr. Graham, lumber checker at  Canyon, is haying more than the  usual run of hard luck this fall. Mrs.  Graham has been tu indifferent heaitn  for some weeks past. On Wednesday  eyening last his son, Hughie, had a  bone broken in his foot in a broken  bench mishap at the Belgian Relief  concert at Creston, jwhile he himself  ia also off work through catting a  severe gash in his hand with an axe.  rm.. i������������������������  ttraiiant are figuring  on venison banquets this week. On  his hunt at Kitchener R. E. bagged a  One Columbian deer which he shipped  in on Tuesday.-  Peter Sherbo was a Creston visitor  on.Thursday. He had some samples  of ore on him from a claim he has  located in the Kuskanook section.  for Cranbrook where she   will spend a  few days with friends.-  The salvaging of the Goat  wrecked bridge was completed Monday. With the exception of three of  the big iron rods practically all the  iron work has been- recovered, and  was shipped to . Nelson this week to  be put in shape for rebuilding.  R. Lamont has the hay baler at  work ths week baling up the crop of  clover he cut on his 20 acres here.  He finds the baled product much  easier to sell,  and   will ship at least  Mlloe Sldlngg  Jacky  Trail.  Moore left on Tuesday for  the Valley.  ildren's relief day was  Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Pochin and  family left on Tuesday for Los Angeles,  Calif., where they will spend a short  time before going on to Arizona,  whtre they expect to remain until  almost April. Their many friends  here hope the change will be found  exactly what's wanted ������*>- completely  restore Mrs. Pochin's health.  E. Cartwright is . taking adyantajje  of the delightful weather to stack up  and burn the stumps he pulled on. his  ranch this spring.  R. B. Staples has invested in a fine  new milch cow. He got the animal  from the Lewis ranch at Sirdar.  The grim reaper has again   visited  the   Canyon   City  section, and   this  time we are called upon to record the  death of Mrs. Olmstead,  who passed  away Sunday  morning,   at the home,  of   her     son-in-law.    Major    W.   H.  Burritt,    in    her    ������5th    year.      She  had been ailing for about two months  due to a general  breakdown of the  system.     Deceased     was     of     Irish  descent  and  was  born    at Burritt's  Rapids, in Carjeton County.   Ontario,  where she resided until 1005 when she  moved to Glenada,  Sask., remaining  there until 1012, when she came on to  Canyon   City    with.   Mr.   and   Mrs.  Burritt.   R.  E.  Pow   conducted   the  funeral  services, the   remains   being  interred  in  the Creston cemetery on  Tuesday afternoon, a large number of  the friends turning out to pay their  last respects.   Tho sympathy of many  friends  goes   out   to  Mr.  and   Mrs.  Burritt and the other four members  of deceased's family in their bereavement.  Mfefhm Anniversary  Belgian ch  overlooked by the children of the Sirdar school, who made Nov. 15th a  tag day for that good cause and  succeeded in making $11.75 which has  been forwarded the authorities at  Victoria- Considering there are only  eleven scholars at the school the  amount realized is extremely creditable to the pupils and the citizens  who made such a good showing  possible.  Mrs. Loasby had a.- letter this we?k  from her brother, Sergt, G. Moore,  who was reported wounded at the  Somme on the 9th of October, that he  is coming along as well as he could  .expect i^.,uan,:>E*a^h^>:^o^itttl-.'----JE[e''  suffered u. shrapnel wound in the side,  and as* yet all the shell has not been  extracted. He was in the artillery,  and of the seven men manning the  gun six were put out of action when  the shell burst, the gunner and horses  being killed. Apparently the gun  crew are working longshifts as Sergt.  Moon* relates that he was on duty  continuously from Sept. 8th until he  was wounded He went across with  the First Contingent, enlisting at  Lethbridge, Alta.  of the Mountain  View ranch are doing some export  business in dressed pork this month.  J. Attwood of Moyie spent a few-  days here the latter part of the week  putting things in shipshape around  his ranch for the winter months.  The Belgian children's relief funds  were swelled to the extent of $15.26���������  the donation 'from the scholars and  teacher at the Bnekson sehool. The  money was a free will pffering^froni  23 pupils, said offerhTlg- of course, having been earned by each scholar contributing. As the school only boasts  an enrollment, of 23 pupils considering  the method adopted to raise "the funds  the showing is ccfeditSible indeed.  F. J. Klingensmith is debarred from  manual labor of any sort a,t present.  While returning from Creston on  Friday last Ms horse shied at a passing auto and its sudden and unexpected leap for liberty threw Mr.  Klingensmith out of the rig alighting  on his shoulder on the frozen ground,  badly dislocating that member. Dr.  Henderson was speedily summoned  and :;t present the patient is coming  along as well as could be expected.  J. vvebster had the bad luck to lose  a fine yearling heifer this week, death  being due to blackleg apparently.'  Andy Miller has had his house re-  shingled this week, which adds considerably to its appearance.  Dick Smith and Jack Boydell with  their hunting outfits pulled out for  Yahk and Kitchener on Tuesday and  are counting on bringing home at  least one deer each on their return.  Sunday's snowfall brought out the  hunters in full force���������in fact so many  of them were in evidence that no self-  respecting deer would dare take a  chance any where within shooting  distance.  Mrs. S. Pool, who has spent the past  few weeks in  Alberta, is  spending a!  few weeks with Mrs.   F.   W.  Ash, on  her return to  her home  at Phoenix,  B.C.  R. Hood and C. Sutcliffe contributed :  eight animals to the car of beef cattle  the P. Bums Co. sent out to Cranbrook on Tuesday. John Spratt also  had a couple of head in it. Hood &  Sutcliffe are wintering about . 130  cattle this winter.  Car! Wigen was a Canyon City  caller on Sunday. He left on Wednesday for Trail, where he expects to  spend the winter.  Paul Ofner, who was unsuccessful  in locating a winter's job at Trail, left  for Coleman. Altai, on Sunday.  Eric Craigie of Erickson is spending  the week with Wynndel friends.  Clarence Ogiiyie of Nelson is also a  visitor here'this week.        ,  Mr. Piggott is here on a visit to his  sister, Mrs. Rosendale, at present.  Mrs. Thompson of Sirdar was visiting friends here on Saturday.  -  !    Miss Mary Penson. who has been   a  Creston visitor for a few days, returned tin Friday.  O. J. Wigen, Matt. -Hagen and Mr.  i Southwell were Ci-eston callers on  i Monday. Mrs. E. Williams on Tues-  j day, and P. Andestad and P. Hagen  ��������� on Wednesday.  Most all our residents are taking  advantage of the freeze-up to haul  home a supply of strawberry mulch.  M. W.

There is a concensus of opinion among these authorities as to the adaptability of the  country to the growth of all grains  and root^ crops. The great amount  of sunshine which obtains in these  northern latitudes renders vegetation  both rapid and luxuriant.  In the Peace River district the seasons change very quickly, so that as  soon as the snow passes the ground  is ready for seeding. The soil in.  sonic places consists of a rich black  i loam.

Hc waited for an answer, with an  ever-increasing agony at his heart.  For he saw that his request was  going to be refused.  Shc evaded it again.  "Why?"  she asked, tremulously.  Pie could scarcely restrain a movement of impatience.  "Will you let mc sec it?" hc repeated  more  sternly.  Shc looked about her for au instant like a frightened bird, and then  said quickly: "1���������I don't know' where  it is.

But  lie  asked   her  no  more   questions.    What was thc use of it? What  was thc use of warring against    two  women who were  other to deceive him?  Little as he knew of/women, Sir  Penywern felt that such a conflict  was  too  one-sided.  Daphne had trained her own maid  in falsehood in order that they should  tell the same tale, and bc able to  meet his inquiries with safe answers.  He was silent so long that the maid  took  courage and asked meekly:  "Shall I find another wrap for my  lady, Sir Penywern?"  He glared at hcr more fiercely than  he knew.  "No," he said,' sharply, and then he  turned away and went slowly downstairs.  But he did not return to the drawing-room. The very sound of # thc  voices of the ladies, aunt and niece,  conversing with apparent excitement,  as he could hear in passing the door,  made him feel sick and ashamed. He  could not fight these women with  their own weapons of prevarication,  lies, decit; at the moment hc felt that  he never wanted to see the face cither  of his wife or of hcr aunt again.  After a few moments' hesitation, lie  went out.  lie had no definite intention in his  mind, being possessed merely by the  loathing inspired by the knowledge  that his own wife was deeply involved in a plot to keep him in ignorance of things that he ought to know.  For the first time dark thoughts of  hcr, suspicions as lo the extent of her  share in the mystery of Ralhbonc|R  death, forced themselves into his  mind, poisoning him with their horror.

Here, in a tiny pagoda-shaped boat  house, were housed half a dozen  small craft; and one of these, a canoe  of portable size, Sir Penywern took  out and carried back to the wood  under bis arm.

Winter Feeding of Cattle  Low Grade Grain That Can Be Used  to Advantage in Feeding  At the present time there are daily  passing through the Winnipeg stock  yards scores of carloads of stocker  and feeder cattle which arc on their  way from the farms of Manitoba and  Saskatchewan to the farms of the  Ccntr.il and Central Western States.  During the month of August, 4,895  head of cattle of all classes crossed  the line from the Winnipeg, yards,  an.d this was before the stocker and  feeder movement had got under full  steam. At the same time, there is  in many parts of our own country a  good deal of feed that will never be  used, some bf it grain, that is scarcely  worth threshing, but that could be  used to feed a large number of animals.  This combination of circumstances  makes especially timely a new circular on Winter Feeding of Cattle by  the Animal Husbandry Department  of Manitoba Agricultural College.  This circular contains data as to actual results in previous Manitoba  feeding experiments, and offers suggestions to those who are open to  consider this line of enterprise.

Improbable That Cannonading  an Appreciable Effect on  Rainfall  By a remarkable coincidence the  iatter half of the year of 1914, and  the whole of 1915 and 1916, so far as  it has gone, have shown an excessive  rainfall in many parts of America  and Europe, a state of affairs that  has given rise to many surmises concerning the relations between the  discharge of great quantities of ammunition at the front in Europe and  the hcavyjfall of moisture. In an address delivered recently before the  ��������� British Rainfall Association a member of that body pointed-out that the  processes of nature are so vast that  it is highly improhablc that even the  great gunfire of recent months has  had any effect on precipitation. To illustrate this statement it was shown  that in one month the excess of rainfall over an area of 58,000 square  miles, which includes England and  Wales, was 3 1-2 inches. The speaker  ^showed that this large excess represents over thirty billion tons of water  and that the minimum quantity of air  which must have been carried over  Englaud and Wales to transport that  water in the form of vapo/must have  been at least 100 times that amount  in weight.' Such- staggering figures  are regarded as evidence that thc  amount of force required to move  masses of this magnitude is far beyond that which can be exerted even  by modern nations at war.

New Banking: Device  Multiple Cheque   Is Great   Saver of  Depositor's Time  The multiple check is the latest  banking device to save depositors  trouble. It has been brought out by  a Boston trust company, and its  chief use is to make it possible for  a depositor to pay all his monthly  bills by. drawing one cheque on or  about the first of the month.  The new cheque is precisely like  the old style cheque, except that its  size is much increased to give room  at the bottom for writing a list of  firms, with the sum set opposite  each one which the drawer desires  to pay. These arc added up, and thc  cheque for the total, payable to the  bank, is duly filled out and signed.  That ends thc bother of the depositor, for the bank does the rest.  It deposits the sums named to the  credit of such payees as happen to  bc depositors and remits to thc  others.  The payer may makc entry o������ thc  firms and amounts paid on the stub  of the cheque, or he may enter only  the total, saving his statements of  account for record.  The plan means more work for lhc.  bank and less for the depositor. But  the bank gets its reward, no doubt,  in the satisfaction of the patron and  the consequent attraction of other  patrons.  The bank cheque ia a wonderful  instrument of business. Wc have become so accustomed lo il that wc  sometimes fail to ^ appreciate its  daily miracle. The invention of the  multiple cheque shows that the uses  to which cheques may bc put have  by no means been exhausted.  Minard's   Liniment   for   sale   everywhere.

Gravity had nothing to do with it.  If the tree fell on some one, it was  supposed to have been thrown that  way on purpose by an evil spit-it.  "When a man got sick or lost his  mind, it was- because some evil spirit  has wormed its way into the man and  pushed the rightful spirit out. Theie  were .no microbes among, savages.  In the Bible and other primitive books  we read constantly of the "casting  out" of evil spirits. Instead of antitoxins, primitive doctors used magic,  vile drugs, and noise to drive out the  spiritual interlopers.  During all the earlier ages of the  world man's great and abiding  anxiety was to act in such a way as to  gain the favor of the good spirits aud  to outwit the eyii ones. Ghosts, gods,  goblins, spirits, demons, fairies and  what not, swarmed about him from  his cradle to his grave. ' He prayed  and offered sacrifies; hesprinklen himself with holy water; he sang praises;  he built temples; he prostrated himself in fear and supplicsition. It is  pitiful to think how much time and  money and energy and agony man  has used up escaping the creatures of  his own imagination.  To a savage, things are. what they  seem to be. He doesn't trouble himself to go behind appearances to find  causes. The sun actually rises and  sets, as it seems to do.. The earth  cannot turn round ou its axis, because  it is flat, arid because we would all  fall off on the under side.  Religion is a child of wonder. It is  the first rough draft of man's explanation of the universe. The sub-human  mind takes things for granted. It is  without curiosity. Man's mind asks  why. Religion is an unsuccessful  attempt to put two and two together.  Man saw a black thing running by his  side, and he wondered what it wus.  He bent down over the pool to drink  and he saw something down there  looking up at him, and his wonder  deepened.  To a, savage, a shadow is a reality,  and the image he sees when he looks  into the water is one of his souls. The  Green landers believe that their shadow  is one of their souls. The Fijians call  it "the dark spirit." The Basutos  'Africai are careful when thev walk  near the water to see that their  shadow does not fall in. for fear the  crocodile will get it and pull them in  with it.

Religion is a strictly human infirmity. No other animal has it. It  originated far back in the past, whon  the human world wus young and the  mind just beginning to open. It is an  anachronism today, with our science  and understanding. It survives solely  by the force of tradition.  Religion came out of the brain of the  savage. It has been revised and revised, in adaption to the changing  knowledge ot men, but it has always  retained the unmistakable earmarks  of it genesis.  Religion has had a natural origin.  It has been produced, like everything  else, in the laboratory of this world.  Nothing is abovo Nature. There is no  such thing na thc supernatural. This  is one of the glories of modern science  ���������tho dlscovory that every thingon the  earth is a part of the earth and shares  in its nature the general nature of tho  earth.  We used to talk about ''Man and  Nature"���������us if man wei*e not a part of  Nature; and about "Man ojjjd the  Animals"���������as if man wore not an  animal. But these Ideas are passing  away foravor. There Is not one law  for tho Insect and another for the  philosopher. Thc earth in a unit.

Echoes are the voi-.-es of  spirits calling from the invisible world  to their friends here in the world of  matter.  Savages are reluctant about having  their picture taken. They believe  that photographic impression is something taken out of theni. Maybe it is  their "life," and the loss will prove  important in time. t  Dreams are actual experience to the  savage.     In sleep the  soul  leaves the  body and wanders in tho spirit-world, i  This spirit-world of the sleeper evolves j  later into the future world   or heaven  of more  advanced  peop'es.    If it had  not   beev    for    the   phenomenon   of  dreams,  it  is doubtful  whether man j  ever would have succeeded   in invent-]  ing the belief in   a   hereafter.    Death ���������  to the  savage  is  an   "eternal  sleep,"  when   tho  nouI   leaves   the    body for  good, and   wanders endlessly   among  the spirits of invisible spheres.  Hell was the headquarters of the  evil spirits It had to be located  somewhere, so It was placed in the  earth. Heaven wuh up among the  stars, and was supposed to be only a  fow hours' journey above the earth.

It is thc story of  exhausted nerves, of a run-down system and of all the accompanying  misery of sleeplessness, headaches  and loss of energy and vigor.  But there is a silver lining to this  cloud. There is the light of new hope  and courage which comes with the  use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.  This letter is so representative of  the kind we arc daily receiving that  you can judge from it what you  might expect from this treatment  under  similar  circumstances.  Mrs. Conrad Schmidt, R. R. No. 1,  Milverton, Ont., writes: "Two years  ago last spring I was run down, had  nervous prostration, and was in a  terribly nervous condition. I could  not sleep or eat. Could scarcely  count the nights that I passed without sleep, and if I did eat, had sick  headaches and vomiting spells. My  limbs would swell so badly that it  hurt me to walk.      I would jump up  in bed, awakened by bad dreams; in  fact, I was so bad I thought I could  not live, and started to use Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food without much  hope.  "It was not long before I began to  improve under this treatment, and I  can truthfully say it-has done me a  world of good. It took some time to  get the nervous system restored, but  1 kept right on using the Nerve Food  regularly, and gradually gained in  health and strength. .1 have a fine  baby boy now.

The Market Report  Supplied by Randall, Gee & Mitchell,  Limited, Winnipeg  A  very    positive    feature  of    the  world's    wheat  situation    under  the  conditions  now existing is  that     the  markets are more sensitive to bullish  than  to  bearish news.    Thc underlying, condition    is  bullish,  and  while  this will not prevent wide-price fluctuations, thc chances arc more favorable   to   the   maintenance   of   a   high  ievei than  to any permanent decline.  So far as present indications arc a  criterion, thc beginning of    the third  year  in  the  European  struggle finds  the   wheat   position   thc   strongest   it  has  been  since that  eventful August  of 1914.   In two out of three seasons  of thc war thc harvests    have been  disappointing.    In 1914 it might well  be said that thc breadstuffs needs of  thc world were almost whollydcpcn-  dent on this continent, and while 1915  was    a most  favorable    year in  the  surplus producing countries, the present scaSon Is one of disappointment.  Thc wheat market since the first of  last July has been a most remarkable  one.    There have been great bull periods before,    but it is very doubtful  if these great prico. movements haye  been     based     on     such     substantial  ground?.    Thc trade has never  seen  heretofore a  marled:  which  recorded  so  great an  advance ostensibly     on  sheer    speculation,    and wJlien     that  speculation     went  "stale"   failed     to  turn   sharply  in  the  other     direction  and record a decline almost equal to  the. advance, if indeed it did not show  a loss greater than the upturn.  It is thc firm undertone of lhc  market at the higher level that is  most impressive. It is confirmatory  of the strong commercial position of  wheat independent: of speculation.  Few will dispute that previous to last  week there was a decided shift in  speculative sentiment to the short  side of lhc market when prices had  shown such marked hesitency to go  higher. Based on the history of previous bull markets, this growing  bearjshness had excellent precedence,  but these abnormal times and lhe  market proved to bc stronger than  the speculative element realize.  me NEW FntrNCHREMEDV.

In  the second place, he said that after  thc war there ought to bc a much  more thorough administration of thc  immigration   problem.  Hc said that in addition to dealing  in a better way with  the immigrant    ^     after he reached Canada, there should ken husband was beating his wife,  be perfect supervision at the point of 'some loafer was living on his wife's  origin.    There must be a selection of hard work and savings.    The woman  raising of the hat or the man opening  the door for the woman. If wc keen  steadily in vieAV the idea of equality  and justice wc may be confident that  what is good will survive, and what  is superfluous will disappear.  After all, there was a good deal o!  humbug and hypocrisy in the old system. The man's hat was raised punctiliously, but somewhere some drun-  the desired classes, and refusal to ac  cept any and every settler who might  offer to come to Canada.  In the third place, His Lordship  said that after thc war every means  would be used to present the advantages of Canada to the intending settlers and to all desirable colonists  who might wish to make nev.* homes  in new countries.  The Canadian Pacific would continue to makc every effort to aid  these settlers after they reached the  Dominion. He expected that the policy of thc ready-made farm would t>e  continued, but hc thought that instead of building houses, immigrants  might be furnished with materials  for buildings at the lowest possible  prices and be allowed to construct  their own buildings, thus reducing  the cost and affording the newcomers  employment for the first months of  their residence in thc Dominion.  "Wc have no manner of doubt with  reference to thc future of Canada after the war," said His Lordship. "In  the course of a few years there will  be a satisfactory immigration from  Europe, and the development of the  country will continue and go forward  as rapidly as is desirable. Canada has  fully demonstrated its productive ca-  nacitv.  and  in   the   course   of  a   few  savings  was so sanctified that shc must be  protected from the arduous and dangerous labor of making a cross on a  ballot; but she could scrub a floor. In  this delicate feminine task of .floor-  washing she went down on her knees,  thereby offering _a curious resemblance to the old-fashioned gallant  lover proposing marriage. It may  have happened that the lover went  down on his knees before marriage  and thc wife afterwards.  The occasion of the Times' articles,  of course, is the part taken by women  in thc present war. Women have  been seen running omnibuses, and  working in munition factories. Truly  an amazing spectacle, calculated to  win men over to woman's suffrage!  The danger, and the toil, and the  drudgery and the anxiety connected  with bringing up a family counted  for nothing. But during the Avar it  has been discovered that women are  capable of doing hard work. So possibly they may win the suffrage. The  woman omnibus conductor has done  in a few months what the poor toiler  at the needle and the washtub could  not do, in centuries.- -Toronto Star.  film expands and becomes set. Upon  the release of the pressure it contracts, which causes minute cracks  that grow larger with every discharge. As they increase in size they  form passageways for more hot gas,  aud that tends to-enlarge them still  further. The inner surface thus* becomes roughened and thc bore begins  to corrode. Finally, thc bore becomes  so enlarged that it allows the gases  to escape. Thc shell docs not then  acquire its proper rotation, and. its  flight becomes erratic.  All guns except small ones arc now-  constructed with linings in the tube,  which, when the bore is worn out, are  removed  and  replaced by new ones.  The cost of relining a gun is approximately thirty per cent, of the cost of  the gun.       There  appears  to be  no  limit to the number of times    that a  gun  can be relined. The small arms  used  in  the  United   States  are   considered  to    be  worn  out after 5,000  to    7,500    rounds    have    been fired.  Small naval guns can bc fired about  1,000 times, before they are regarded  as worn out.

I New Republic.  Africa a Virgin Land  Development of North African Empire Expected After the War  When the war in Europe shall have  ended, the first great question which  peace will bring is that of a food  supply for the nations pauperized^ by  battles. There will be an immediate  nccsssitj*" for virgin lands from which  huge crops niay be taken at small  cost, and with it will come the need  for new sources of wealth of every  sort, says the "World Outlook.T  There can be no doubt but that Europe knows where they are to be  found. Unquestionably one of the  causes of the -present war was the  need for richer fields for development. France and England, particularly France, had found them. France  had looked across the Mediterranean  and had found at thc very doorway  of Europe the making of a great  North African Empire. England had  looked and found Egypt. Italy had  looked and regained Tripoli for the  Romai*^ state.  Peace eventually would have resulted in the development of North  Africa, but this war will equal a century of peace in that respect. Bandaged Europe, turning its empty  pockets inside out, will cross the  Mediterranean and thc North African empire will cease to bc a dream  and will become a reality.  answering thc first note of   his   welcome  home.    Australians .may  think  with   him,   and   hope  with   him,   that  we shall not.    Wc laughed in the sun  and followed our prosperous     path's  witii cheerful- and childlike arrogance.  The first    of our men    rau bravely,  even gayly, to the great game of war,  hearing    the trumpets    and not    the  groans,    seeing the    waving-banners  and    not thc    stricken fields.      The  knowledge and the pain of long endurance, sorrow    and suffering    have  come  to us  since  then.       Surely no  man iri this country, aloof from war  yet redly streaked by.war's long lingers,  can  look back ovcr two  years  without  a  sudden    flood  of    almost  ashamed    gratitude   for    what   other-  countries  have done for it. -    When  the news of war broke upon us two  years    ago,  there  were    few  indeed  who looked forward to this time as  only   the   glimmering   dawn   of     the  day of release.    Britain was to bc the  avenger.       Her  might,  though   long  unused, would spring at once to fullest  life  and   crush  thc  dcspoilcrs   of  Belgium and the ravishers of France.  Those first black weeks left us gasping and sweating    as from a    nightmare.     Confidence  seemed  on   point  of giving way to terrible foreboding.  Then the fulfilment of Joffre's bravely patient plans brought a flush    of  hope, and after that wc settled down  to his grim nibblings.  In thc long**and undeciding months  which followed wc comprehended  more and more distinctly how we  were dependent    upon    strength out  and south half across Europe never  shook for a moment Russia's sacri-  fical loyalty. Belgium and Serbia  have been destroyed, France has been  bled fearfully, great wounds have  been torn in the vast territory oi  Russia and Italy has flung millions  in men and money into the whirlpool  of war. Each of these nations- has  been drawn by necessity or policy  into the struggle. While that fact is  plain enough, we will not attempt  meanly to disguise from ourselves the  circumstance that their warring has  achieved our preservation. Not Britain, nor any of the great nations noW  linked with her, could have withstood  singly thc fell preparations of the  Germans.  Now, in our own countries, a great  measure of strength and order has  been wrought out of military nothingness. Though Kitchener has gone,  his work remains. We believe that  we see victory ahead of us, but we  sec, too, the pitiful price that has yet  to be paid. Slowly we have dragged  ourselves, through many little discords, to unity. It is our turn and  our chance to repay our great and  gallant friends. To this end Britain  herself has given all. Her dominions  have given much. To say that Aus-  tlaia could yet give more is not to  decry the nobleness and unselfishness  of ..hundreds of thousands of brave  men. Individual sacrifices have been  innumerable and wonderful. Britain,  in calling upon every fit man to serve  his turn, has made, as a nation, the.  supreme sacrince, and paid her hes-  i est debt to the men who first stood  arms.

Prussians cannot vote  until they arc 25 years old, and that  is the minimum age limit in a number  of German states.  Twenty-live is also thc age in Holland, Belgium and Japan.
