C, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1916  Reclamation Cost  Under $2,000,000  Bonner's Ferry, Idaho, November 24  ���������From all present indications the  project of reclaiming the Kootenay  Valley of Idaho and British Columbia,  which includes some 80,000 acres of  rich bottom lands on both sides of the  Kootenai river for a distance of some  ISO miles, will soon be taken up again.  The project was well under way just  before the presentEuropean war started and fche goyernments of the United  States and Canada were considering  the features whioh made the proposition an international affair and had  had department, heads and official  engineers over the field on both sides  of the boundary line to determine the  feasibility of drainage plans.  At this time the renewing of interest in tne drainage of the Kootenai  valley comes from the work of the  people of Creston, B.C. The Cresfcon  people have been quietly working and  thus far. have secured practical promises from fche present- administration.  Premier Brewster was placed in office  by the Liberal party and this party is  pledged to several reclamation projects,  it is understood, among which that, of  the Kootenai Valley is foremost  It is also claimed that the highest  (*ffi.cials of the Canadian Pacific Railway company have become interested  in fche . proposition believing thafc  successful drainage would bring fche  railway company a greafcly increased  amount of tonnage.  It is further claimed,1 and upon reliable information, fchafc certain electric power companies operating on  the Kootenai river below the point  where the greatest amount of work  will be done in the effort to secure  drainage, have agreed fco diverge fche  point of intakes for their power plants  and thafc such changes will be made afc  no cost to any government-ordrainage  commission. In the past, the conflict-ion of the interest of drainage and  the power companies has been a  serious obstacle.  -Lite     ujoj.        ijJbiiJJaujuji       u.jji    gciuri-ci  public had of the renewing of reclamation plans was when Richard S.  Bevan. of Creston, B. C, came here  this week in conference with A. J.  Kent. Mr. Beyan is a member of  the British Columbia commission  elected to further the interest of  drainage io this district. The details  of the plans of the Canadian commission have not been made public as  yet. While here Mr. Bevan agreed  to send a written statement at once  concerning the plana of tho Canadians  which will be forwarded to Senator  Borah at Washington, D.C., who in  turn will take the matter up with the  proper officials of the' U.S. goyernment. It is known fchat fcho Creston  people want to get the engineers and  heads of the departments of drainage  together at once in order thafc thoy  may compare data already gathered,  check over surveys made and so decide  upon fcho best manner in which to  proceed.  From Canada comes the report that  this spring during fcho high water  period the Kootenai river partly  liiveiLuu f.-om tin natural comae afc a  point above Fort Steel, B.C. Itseoms  thafc years ago a Canadian syndicate  wuh granted a land commission for  cutting a canal from fche Kootenai  rivor fco fcho Columbia rivor afc a poinfc  whoro the fcwo streams aro but a little  ovor a mile apart. Tho canal was  cloned when complaint wnn made by  people owning land along fcho banks  of fche Columbia rivor and wiih referred fco fcho U.S. government that  tho diyornion of tho Kootenai river  waters Into fcho Colombia rivor caused  an undue amount of spring high  vvafcor and ruined property. Ifc it*.  oloirned fchat under Canadian law** the  protwnfc diversion of fche Koofconai  rivor cannot bo blocked or hindered.  Ifc ja also known fchafc at Proctor, B.  C, fcho Koofconai river was widened  Home 100 foot, and houio $50,000 wna  Npenfc in improving fche river channel.  People who havo made a cIoho al-ndy . n ,.. *  of   high   water  conditions along fche I     H������v������lfltc)k������  rl * X vtm.tf.i.  f.W l-,*, J  Koofconai river and oiifs-moera fitatc  thafc if ifc had not. been for fcho diversion of the river above Km fc Steel and  the work done to improve tho channel  at Procfcer, the overflow afc Bonners  Ferry this spring would haye been six  feet higher. Such an increase in the  overflow would haye undoubtedly  washed away a greater, part of the  city, as fche current at this point is  very swift during the high water  period.  The matter of draining the Kootenai valley was first taken up aboufc  15 years ago. Quite active steps were  taken about six years ago. The best  drainage experts in the world have  been brought to pass opinions, on the  feasibility of the project. At first ifc  was thought thafc complete drainage  might be secured by dyking and  drainage improvement districts were  formed for this purpose. The work  was held up time and time again by  legal technicalities. Five years ago  the people of the Canadian side and  the people of fche Idaho side decided  that in accordance with their engineers fche most pracical scheme was  the widening of the Kootenai Narrows  afc the head of Kootenai lake in  British Columbia. To do fchis a compact was necessary between the Canadian and Uni ed States goyernments.  Just at the time the war broke out  the chances seemed good that the  treaty wanted would be rushed  through.  The drainage of the Kootenai valley  is undoubtedly a project of immensity.  The bottom lands along the banks of  the Kootenai t-iv������i- are fche iiiosfc fertile  in the wor'd, not- excepting the soil of  the Nile river valley, say soil experts.  These lands now raise on fche average  of $20 worth of hay to the acre each  year. Two years ago when there was  but little high water many acres of  bottom land were plowed for the first  time and seeded to oats and wheat,  etc. immense crops wei*e harvested.  Experts claim that the soil of fche  bottom lands of the Kootenai valley  wil! raise crops which will net-the  owner $60 to the acre. The complete  darinago of the valley in the United  States and Canad-i wouid. at a most  conservative estimate, mean an increase in crops to the amount of  $3,000,000.  It has been figured that the work of  draining the Kootenai Valley would  cost in the neighboahood of $1,750,000.  Miss Emma Johnson and Mrs. E.  Williams were Creston callers on Friday. Miss Anna Hagen was at the  capital on Saturday, and- Messrs  Rosendale and Ed. Southwell on  Monday.  J. B. Winlaw of Nelson is here on  a business trip this week.  t  Lieut.

While afc work at logging operations  for Monrad Wigen yesterday Walter  Cooper had fche misfortune to have a  bone broken in his right leg, when a  stick of the timber slipped from fche  skidway. Dr. Henderson was called  to dress the injured member, and the  injuries, while not real serious will  keep Walter off work- till after  .Christmas.

He got his in the Goat Mountain  range on Sunday.  The sympathy of all goes out. to Mr. J  and Mrs. Ira Beam, who this week re- j  ceived word that their daughter, Mrs. j  Sanford, who lived   in   Alberta,  had ;  Citizens Giving  Red Cross Apples  **-  passed    away     unexpectedly   sudden j  while    undergoing     treatment   in    a  hospital there.  Yesterday brought- un welcome  tidings to Mrs. Leach, Mis. H. Hamilton's guest. Word came by wire that  Mr. Leach had received a wound in  the eye during the fighting the latter  part of November, and had been taken  to the King George Hospital, London,  England, for treatment.

Wigen, succeeded  in obtaining 234 boxes of apples to be  included in the shipment of six carloads going from B.C. for a Christinas gift to the B.C. battalions at the  front. We understand each donor's  name is also sent to the Vancouver-  branch of the Canadian Red Cross  Society, from whence each gift of  apples will be duly acknowledged.  The best thanks of fche Creston  Auxiliary are due to all those ladiee  who spent  their  time  in canyassing,  to  Mrs. S. Pool, who spent the \v,  with Mrs. F. W.

They ha ve leased  the old mill belonging to G. A. Hunt,  which will require considerable overhauling.  Billy Johnson was a passenger to  Cranbrook on Tuesday. He has booked six months leayeas section foreman  and his succesor hails from Yahk.  The deer season closes in two weeks,  and unless some tall hustling is done  by the Indians their venison supply  will be a whole lot lighter than lasfc  season.

The Gcllibrands, indeed,  were old-fashioned people, who held  the quaint and antiquated doctrine  that husband and wife, so far from  having distinct and even opposing  interests and tastes and opinions, and  living separate and detached lives  each on his own account, ought to  conform as closely as possible to the  formula of the Scriptures and of the  Church   Service.  It  followed,    therefore,    that  they  hoped     more from     Sir  Penywern's  own efforts to come to an understanding with ms wife than from any  outside influence, however sympathetic.  \XT>L* .���������������������"*        If J������        ni-*-*-ts-%*. ****��������������� lt*r������ **j#k4-H ���������*���������* ���������'J*-*,  VV iivu    xlv    diai fc.v.*������a,     on.    tub     ivtuiu     +\s  his home, although he had not learnt  all he wished, Sir Penywern" felt a  little comforted by two things: their  simple and unshaken faith in Daphne  herself; and their assurance that  there was no ugly page in hcr family  history. _  (To Be Continued.) *  Her   husband   turned  uyi i tmg  *c   bodv  and  al-  troubled   eye-  to   lier   quickly. |  "Sir    I'cnywern   has   brought      had i  !!,w>, niy dear," he said, drawing her  inio     the   conversation     with   >imple  irust in her gocul sense in a difficulty.

Notwithstanding her poverty in iron  and other raw materials and the high  price of the transportation of coal,  the premier said today Italy was able  lo manufacture munitions not only  for herself, but to supply hcr allies.  "She had 900 military establishments of the first class going and 800  auxiliary factories, which arc worked  by 425,000 hands, of whom 45,000 are  women," said the premier. "Italy is  now making as many guns in a month  as she made in a year formerly. Her  machine-gun output has multiplied  six hundred times and that of shells  one hundred and ten times. Hcr automobile output also has increased,  while thc aviation industry is making  rapid  strides." -  B. C.

Sockeye Pack Was Much Less Than  in Previous Twelve Months  The B. C. sockeye pack is 201,000  cases, as compared- with 477,000 cases  last year, revealing a condition that  does not makc the packers optimistic.  It is said to be a bad year, and this  was due to the fact that weather conditions through the whole season  were wet and cold, causing fish io  swim low in thc water and thus escape the 22ft. nets. Thc fish were in  thc rivers and inlets, but they were  not caught on their way up to the  spawning grounds.  It was an "off" year for sockeye or. '^^-  the Fraser River, but thc falling off  was greater than had been expected  even for a slim year. One packer-  contracted lo sell 15,000 cases before  the season began, but all hc could  put up was 4,000 cases, and he was  hard put to do even this.

Although it was only first distributed  about five years ago, it is now the  most popular wheat in Western Canada, and probably seventy per. cent,  of this year's crop was the Marquis  j strain. I think I am safe in saying  that if thc Red Fife wheat had bscn  grown all over the country and Marquis had not been produced, wc would  this year have a crop of fifty milliori  bushels less, which at prevailing prices would have meant a loss to the  1 country of from fifty to seventy-five  million dollars."  It should bc added that it was Marquis wheat which won the $1,000  prize at thc New York Land Show in  1911, for thc best milling wheat grown  anywhere in the two Americas, and  which also won thc gJrand sweepstakes prizes for hard wheat at the  International Dry Farming Congress  for three vears in succession���������1913,  1914 and 1915.

The inclusion of M. A. Macdonald in the cabinet appears to  surprise some. Those objecting to  the new attorney general argue he  I should be denied a portfolio until  the somewhat historic plugging  incident is cleared up.

With one exception  the gentlemen selected are those  the experts have been guessing  almost since election night, though  the departments assigned them are  rather different than the prophets  had forecasted.  The Review regrets to announce  that John Keen, M.P.P., is not  among the chosen. The mines portfolio goes to William Sloan of Na-  nimo. Possibly a competent man,  though hardly as well qualified as  the member for Kaslo we fancy.  Individually  and collectively the  Again the Fiats  The Kootenay flats reclamation  scheme is again to the fore at Idaho  points along the river that will  benefit by the reclaiming of those  fertile acres. In a lengthy article  on the proposition the Bonner's  Ferry Herald of iast week gives  some data that we have not heretofore soon in print.  According Ut that paper "it has  ministry looks as capable a pro-' been figured that tho work of  vinciiil     administration     as     any  draining     the     Rooter ay    Valley  these overflowed lands would net  the man cultivating them at least  $60 au acre.  Assuming that B.C.'s share of  the expense of reclamation would  run into a million dollars���������and not  forgetting that these be days for  curtailing rather than encouraging  expenditure���������at this critical time  in the province's agricultural production, even the closest old skinflint of an economist would question  the outlay for such a work when it  means an almost immediate million  dollar boost in a line that sadly  needs a tremendous increase.  With the advent of the Brewster  government, pledged to investigate and provide remedies to speed  up agricultural development,  everything possible should be done  to command the attention and  energies of the new administration  toward the reclamation scheme���������  at least to the extent of a thorough  -���������������������������> ifoD^ * *~x*rh *4-*i ���������������*.������������������*** I'*\*it *-**.**. ������***w> 4-.*>*"������ ^" O "* * *" * __  HI l \  t30VE^f*L.Xt/������a ���������U-'j- -uVlll |J"t.'UOtJ U        V* > ������g *  neers to discover whether the  scheme can be successfully undertaken, and how and at what  exoense.  With the predicted influx of  newcomers after the war no agricultural proposition in the whole  province would appeal more strongly than these 40,000 acres, practically all of which is ready for the  plow, and in a state of fertility, we  are told, that will carry them for  several years to come. Certainly  for these returned-soldier-commun-  ity-farms no more all-round ideal  spot in all the province could bo  found than these Kootenay Valley  lands.  Weilders of knitting needles who  may be prone to weary of welldoing for the boys at the front and  be inclined to substitute the store  sock for the handknit kind, should  remember that the homemade  product is ahout a dozen times as  good as the purchased article; according to Sergt. Quinn of Harrop,  B.C. He has been in the trenches  and knows whereof he speaks.

Editor Review:  Sib,���������The two prime necessities in  war are men and money. Which of  these two does our modern civilization  concede most essential, secret or  divine ?  We all concede that, if need be, wc  will fj-rant conscription; that is compelling theflower of our manhood to  go forth to kill or be killed, and if tin*  latter be his lot he is lost to us forever.  We have never yet seen it conceded,  either by press or public that ������he state  or nation bus any legal or moral  right to put conscription on money.

Among animals, the human alone is  religious. He doesn't have religion  as if it wore ex tram eons to him.  Religion did net originate, hut being  eternal, it was before time and the  world and the mind of man. It is up-  to date with all our foolishness and  misunderstanding. It survive*-} solely  because of its inherent force.  Religion came out of the mind of  God. "It has been royised and revised, in adaptation to the changing  knowledge of men," but that does not  moan radical change. It remains tho  same eternal reality.  Religion has had a supernatural  origin. It has boen produced, like  everything olso, from tho laboratory  of tho divine energy. Everything is  ultimately supernatural. Thoro Is no  nuch thing as the natural. This ia one  of the follies of some phases of modern  licoiiHe���������tho failure to discovor that  everything on the earth Is a part of  the spiritual world, and is In its own  nature really spiritual.  We used to talk about "Man und  Nature "���������iih if man were part of Nature; and about "Man and tho Animals," uh if man wen an animal. And  the*.** ideas am correct a������* far jw they  go, but they tell uh very little about,  the real nature of man. The insect  simply exists, hut the philosopher an-  aly'/en, elaMslHefi und philonoplil'/.cn  about the insect. The earth Ih a diversified unity. The human body iu  mado of tho sanio matter hut there is  a mighty difference in the makhu/,  and In the result. The tiwme of the  Jmmnti brain forrri*- n vehicle for  though Ih and ideas that never entered  the numth of a worm.    And when we  think of man it is the animation that  stirs our admiration and not any idea  suggested by a vegetable. Man cannot be chemically considered, because  he is a glorious combination of matter  and spirit.  The modern mind is also steeped in  supernaturalisui. Every effect is the  result of its proper cause. When a  tree falls it is by the force of gravity,,  and it does not stop; even if a materialistic scientist stands in the way of  its fall. A great deal of the. sickness  and insanity of to-day is doubtless due  to the spirit of evil. There were  microbes among savages, although  they were not aware of them. Just as  there is religion among the materialists to-day, although tbey may not be  awa**-e of it. In the bible and other  ancient and modern books we read  constantly of the "casting out" of evil  spirits and not all the anti-toxins of  modern medical skill and good medicines and the rest cure have yet availed to cast out all the eyil spirits of the  day���������and they have been a long time  trying,  During the earlier ages of the world  man believed in the supernatural, bnt  not all men were superstitious. There  were a few scientists even then. Today some are superstitious, but they  are in the minority, and it is pitiful to  think how much time and money and  energy and agoii3r some men have  used up trying to identify superstition  with supernaturalisru.  That is quite true about the savages  and his religion and his lack of scientific knowledge. But to the modern  "things are not what they seem." The  highest and purest forms of religion  are to be found amongst civilized people, others are contrasted with the  savage forms, by their radical difference from rather than their similarities with the latter.  Dreams are actual experiences to  the civilized modern. "We are such  stuff as dreams are made of, and our  little life is rounded with a sleep."  And whatever be the sayage conception of heaven and hell Lhe ideas represented by these two words are by uo  means becoming rapidly extinct, or  there are a great many thoughts expressed in wordy articles and swear  words that have no ideas behind them.  Prof. J. Howard Moore is, we presume, a man, nnd as such he may be a  comical animal and may think he is  logical. But according to his own  premises, we cannot accept his conclusions, because we do not know  whether they sire logical or merely  comical. We belong to that species,  man, who is both a serious and a logical animal.  Somejiumati minds may still be in  their infancy, but the human mind is  ������uite ma tore. We know a little about  the past of mankind, but nothing  about the future, as we do not know  what even a. day may bring forth, and  do not make any rash eoniparicons  between past and future, lt would be  a good tonic for Prof. Moore and his  admirers to read the fourth section of  Part I. of G. K. Chesterton's "What's  Wrong with the World."  Religion is essentially scientific. It  will always remain. It suits itself to  the various stages of mental development, notwithstanding the tinkering  it has received at the hands of irreverent unbelievers. The more men j  know of chemistry, of physics and  evolution and natural law, the more  do thoy feel their need of th- super*  natural to explain them. Every true  scientist must pray. Prayer is  essentially scientific Every evolutionist must belieyo in a firmt oause  and an ultimate end���������that is God.  And the brightest and purest and best  and most rational conception of God is  the Christian one.    R. Ekrkink Pow.  seems to have been a bit premature.

Cfe  f_  /  EDU  HIHEC  SMALL   NATIONS   TO   SECURE   MORE   TERRITORY  Should Success Grown thc Efforts of the Allies in their Operations,  Serbia, Italy, Rumania, and Russia will-Acquire much  Valuable Territory from the Enemy  Colony Homes  c. p.  Should thc armies of the Allies,  now operating between thc Italian  l'rridcnta and Galicia, and from Car-  pathia to Salonika, be successful in  their aims, 100,000 square miles will  eventually hc subtracted from Austria-Hungary. This territory, sustained before the war a population of 17,-  000,000, or just one-third of thc total  population of thc Dual Monarchy.  Thc geographical divisions hy which  these parcels of Austrian and Hungarian property arc known arc as follows:  Thc Tyrol (the southern half), thc  coastlands (with Trieste), Dalmatia  (with thc islands of the Adriatic, but  diminished by a thin paring left for  Serbia), arc to go to. Italy. This thin  paring of Dalmatia, south of thc  mouth of the Narcnta River, Bosnia,  Herzegovina and a portion of Sla-  vonia will fall to Serbia; Transylvania, Bukovina and thc Banat of Tc-  lnesvar will go to Rumania, and Galicia will become Russian.  Italy will take some 13,000 square  miles, having a population of ahout  2,000,000. Of this population less  than 800,000 arc Italian and the. major fraction is Slav, Serb in Dalmatia  and thc islands, Slovene about  Trieste.  Rumania will receive 36,000 square  miles, having a population of 4,800,-  000. Of this population a little more  than half, 2.450,000, is Rumanian,, 1,-  000,000 is Magyar, 700,000 German  and 50,000 Slav ���������- Serb in the Banat,  Russian in Bukovina.  Russia will get Galicia entire, having an area of just over 30,000 square  ' miles and a population of slightly  more than 8,000,000. Practically all  of this population, save for the Tews,  is Slav, and 5,000,000 is Polish. Some  of the fairest hits of the Alps, sonic  of the best known places of tourism,  will fall to Italy's share.  In addition, in taking Trieste and  thc coastland down lo thc end of the  Islrian peninsula, she will get thc  great modern city of Trieste, one of  thc first commercial ports of the Mediterranean basin, and Pola, thc chief  naval station of Austria. Along the  Dalmatian coast she will acquire  other splendid harbors and such famous cities as Zara, Spalatro, Sebeni-  co. Possession of Dalmatia and of the  islands of thc Adriatic will give her  has other hopes. Montenegro, also a  Serb land, will unquestionably hc  joined to Serbia, together with the  northern tip of Albania, containing  Scutari. All told, Serbia hopes and  expects lo gain 30,000 square miles,  25,000 coming from Austria, and save  for a few Albanians about Scutari thc  people of these regions are all Serb  by race.  Even greater arc Rumanian ambitions. Before she entered the second  Balkan war, Rumauia was a nation of  7,000,000, and her area was nearly 50,-  000 square miles, about that of England or of New York State. The Balkan war gave her 3,000 square miles  and 300,000 people taken from Bulgaria. If shc gets hcr prize in thc  Austrian campaign shc will get over  36,000 square miles and become a  kingdom with an area equal to that  of the mainland of Italy. Her total  population will bc close to 12,000,000,  and more than half of the new citizens will be Rumanian by race.  In Transylvania, loo, she will acquire thc coai mines necessary to he-  industrial expansion. Shaped now  like a crescent moon, Rumania will  then become a solid block, no longer  threatened with bisection by any attack coming from Austria.  The real prize will naturally fall to  Russia. Galicia is one of the richest  agricultural lands in all Europe and  its oil wells arc unsurpassed on the  Continent. By bringing hcr frontiers  to the Carpathians Russia will abolish thc open frontier that has so long  weakened her position on the west  and has proved so disastrous in >hc  campaigns of the present war. Lcm-  berg, the capital of Galicia, is a city  of nearly 250,000. thc fourth in the  Austrian Empire and one of the great  railroad centres of Europe. Some portion of Galicia Russia intends to add  to her Polish kingdom, probably all  west of thc San.  In doing this, Russia will restore  5,000,000 Poles to their old association  with Warsaw, and if there be" an  autonomous Poland, under Russian  protection, it wiii contain at least  16,000,000 of lhe 20,000,000 Poles, the  balance remaining in thc eastern  lands of  Prussia.  Such, briefly, is thc partition of  Austria-Hungary.

Building Houses in the West  for Returned Soldiers  The- houses which thc C.P.R. is  building in thc West for thc returned  soldiers will cost them about $1,000  each, with out-officcs. They will consist of four rooms each ~ two bedrooms, dining-room and kitchen. Each  farm will consist of 160 acres and  there will bc 80 additional acres which  may bc. availed of in the course, of  time, and as thc settler concludes  that he can work it. The C.P.R. has  several designs for homes which will  be submitted to thc intending settlers. These offer a variety of design  to suit different tastes and different  pockets, it may be said. The settler  can choose a house which will cost  him $2,000, hut the payments will bc  made exceedingly easy. In all there  are probably 8,000,000 acres of iand  held by speculators in thc West; but  apart from that there are literally  hundreds of millions oi acres of cultivable land lying idle ovcr the West  ���������not close  to  thc  tracks,  of  course,  -raoi? nr mm  vi^a_ va  *M_'HB8������H  VmLS  l|fKMII������ I HI4 WAR  AERIAL NAVIGATION IN THE COMMERCIAL WORLD  At the Close of the War There Will Be No Longer Any Doubt  But that the Skilled Aviators Developed by the War will  Utilize Aeroplanes in More Peaceful Pursuits  No more thrilling page in thc romance of Avar has yet been written  than that which records the mastery  of thc air by hcavicr-than-air machines. Thc story told in Thc Globe by  Frederick Palmer smacks of the talcs  of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells,  when as yet man was limited in his  means of locomotion to the surface  of thc earth and the surface of the  sea. Ten years ago aviation was in its  but good land which many have long-1 experimental stage.    The    name had  ed for so ardently that ihey have sat  on thc steps of thc land office all  night to he thc first in the morning  to get their application in. Thc C.P.R.  is going on on its own account with  the colony homes;"hut it expects that  thc Government will shortly outline  a plan- of a    comprehensive    nature  not yet found its way into lhc standard dictionaries and encyclopaedias.  Practical men shook their heads and  dismissed the idea of aerial flight as  a passing craze that would run its  course and die a natural death. Eight  years ago the improvements effected  enabled thc avialor to attain a speed  situation.  Getting the Submarines  J.

Frederick  Palmer, in this third year of war, tells  jof machines with a speed of 165 miles  an hour, flying at an altitude of 10,000  feet, and capable of carrying lu*.avy  loads in addition to the pilot and observer. Steadily improving in speed,  endurance and climbing powers, the  war has brought thc hcavicr-than-air  machine to a point of efficiency not  dreamt of ten years ago. When peace  comes there, is no longer any doubt  that aerial navigation will hc a strong  competitor on land and across narrow-  seas and lakes for the traffic that is  now satisfied to travel at a maximum  speed of sixty miles an hour on land  and about thirty miles an hour en  water. Thc spectacle of an avialor,  who before the .war was unversed in  The policy which thc British have  adopted of snaring, sinking or capturing- German submarines aud saying nothing about it, in order to afflict thc enemy with  tery of the vessels'  has bred a policy of  Germans themselves,  always coining; but  A keen  to  know  the  dark  mys-  disappearancc,  mystery in the  Thc Bremen is  which   Bremen?

Bosnia, Dalmatia, thai  falls to hcr share, thc portion of Sla-  vonia, have an area of 21,000 square  miles, materially more than that of  Serbia before the first Balkan war.  Acquiring them, Serbia will at last  gain hcr window on lhe sea, denied  Iter through Austrian interference after her Balkan victories.    But Serbia  gary is already recorded as an accomplished fact. Many of these maps  extend the limits of the dismemberment far beyond those described.

British have already captured two of  the    merchant   submarines, America-  bound, bearing this name, and    that  thc  Germans  have   still  another     on  the  way.     If   this   is   true, and     the  Germans keep sending out new  Brc-  mens,  one  of  them   may  at  last  get  across, and then the Germans will be  able   to   say   that  "thc   Bremen     got  ovcr safely."      The  German authorities have played a game of mystification from thc start.    Manifestly    the  sending     out  of chartered tugs here  and there, the reporting of the boat  first  at  one place and then another,  and so on, have been for thc purpose  of throwing the cruisers oft' the track.  It is altogether probable that at least  one  of  these  under-watcr     merchant  vessels has been captured^ and not at  all unlikely that two have been thus  taken.    More than fifty  German submarines     have   disappeared    into  the  vast deep and have, never come back.  Thc British admiralty*   could   account  for most of theni, but it will not. The  "frightfulncss"    of mystery    is sometimes more terrible than that of visible,     staring    bloodshed. ��������� Boston  Transcript.  aerial locomotion, taking aeroplanes  across from England to France for  delivery at the front, and gliding  through the air at the rate of 165  miles an hour, shows thc tremendous  possibilities that arc opened up by the  developments in aviation.  The romance of aviation is bound  up with two other romantic pages in  the-history of  locomotion.    The invention of the pneumatic tire for bicycles  by  Dunlop,   and the birth  of  the motor car, with .its internal combustion engine, paved the way for the  coming of thc aeroplane.    For without the pneumatic lire the motor car  would not have made such strides in  popularity,  and   without     the  motor  gasoline  engine    thc heavier-than-air  machine    would have been stillborn.  England was slow to enter the field  of aviation until the motor had reach- ���������  cd a stage    that offered    every prospect of success.    With characteristic  energy Britain set about adapting and  improving    thc ideas of   French and  American    engineers    and    aeroplane  builders as soon as the machines had  passed the experimental stage.    This  war has given Britain the control of  the air, a victory due to the splendid  qualities  of the  British mechanic  no  less than to the dash and bravery o������  the British aviator.      Canadians are  winning their way to the front rank,  in the aviation corps at the front.   At  the close    of thc  war    these  skilled  aviators   will   not  again   settle  down  to  thc  humdrum   pace of the  street  cars.    Canada    will witness the coming  of the  aerial  bus  for  passenger  service on the Great Lakes and elsewhere.���������Toronto Globe.

Mustn't Waste Good Shells  Throughout thc big naval battle  ort thc coast of Jutland thc commander of a British super-dreadnought  had remained at his post, imperturbable, giving his orders briefly and  making no comments, until it happened thnt the gunnery officer lrs\in-  fc' ed  the  huge  15-inch  gun  on  a  Ger  man destroyer    and blew hcr    clean  out of the water.
