Suddenly he slipped and fell. Ten  feet below was a" pile of wood, knotted and gnarled. It was a nasty tumble, and Mr. Putnam was injured  painfully in the back; he was covered  with bruises, and was sore from head  to foot.  The next day he bought a bottle  of Sloan's Liniment which had been  recommended to him. Within a very  few hours the soreness had vanished  and. the lameness had disappeared.

Address  THE COOK MEDICINE CO.  Toronto, Ont. (Formerlu Windsor.)  If the War Settles Down to a Question of Endurance, It Will Be  Bad for Germany  Field Marshal von Hindenburg  could not deny that the entente allies are in a better position to wage  a thirty years' war, if that be necessary, than are the Germans and Austrians. Does he think that the people  of Germany are in a position to stand  another thirty years' war? How did  the last one leave Germany? The  idea is impossible. No nation can  fight thirty years on a diet of sawdust. If the war settles down to a  question of rhere endurance���������and  that is what Hindenburg - confesses  that it is on the western front���������Germany is doomed. Meantime, the  world will shudder at the invocation  of the spectre of another Thirty-  Years' War. Of that war. history  tells us that it "reduced Germany to  a state of misery that no historian  has been able to describe," and that  it kept the whole land for 150 years  in the stillness of exhaustion.���������Boston Transcript.

Tliat the ladies  take their organization seriously is  evidenced in the turnout of seventy-  two of the eighty odd members at  the meeting.  For  a   starter,   the   ladies  have  ���������������������������very reason to he   proud of their  1910 record.    In addition to much  useful   work  done  at  thc  regular  sessions, as well as   financial   help  to  various  patriotic   schemes,   the  institute   has   at   least   two  public  performances which are very much  to   their  credit,   viz.:   the   modest  fall    fail*    in    September   ai:<i    the  ������������������pouring of a competent authority  to demonstrate in domestic .science  last week.

Iu returning him to that office  for another term the members did  a good stroke of businese. Here's  hoping he and the directors will  have big success in their efforts to  secure more and better spraying  as well as along many other  vitally important Hues.

While the 1917 gathering  was lacking in Edinondsonian fireworks tov av cdhsicler^ble' eixteht, still  there was considerable life to the  gathering in some other directions.  President Cook had his usual consist* statement of case for himself as  well as tiie directors to 'Submit, one  of the chief features of which was the  announcement that the added two  per cent, on the selling price-of goods  effective since last March has been  sufficient to pay the $4&& purchase  price of the McCreath warehouse and  leave a few dollars to the good���������about  twenty of them to be exact. It was  also a pleasure for him to report a  satisfactory year and the prevalence  peace and harmony throughout'the  twelve months.  He was strong for the Institute enlarging the activities of its trading department, and favored dropping back  to the three per cent, on the eost selling arrangement- now the warehouse  debt was disposed of. He also urged  the holding of the packing school this  winter. With fche ever increasing  apple crop he warned that the Valley  wouldf find itself shy of packers to  handle the fruit promptly unless'more  of them were available. In closing he  spoke strongly on the matter of more  and better spraying, and the desirability of the ranchers getting together in the purchasing of spraying  outfits.'  .  Including'a'balance of $261 carried  forward from last year the treasurer's  ���������statement showed receipts.of $888, and  a    total expenditure of   $077,   which  a credit balance of $201, of which $174  is in cash and $117 in goods.  The secretary's report showed that  a small increase in membership had  obtained during the year, going up  from 280 in 1915"to 242 in 1910, said  membership being spread over the  country between Boswell and Yahk.  A little comparative information submitted showed that in 1912* with 200  members the institutei closedits year  with $80 to the good, whereas last  year with 242 members the surplus was  $291.  In the trading department $29,490  worth of commodities had been received during the year, and with the  exception of some $900 of stock on  hand it had all been sold, making the  net increase on the year's sales almost  $2,000, the figures for the two years  being $20,750 in 1915,-as compared with  $28,560 in 1916. Last year's heavy  business was in feed of which $21,981  was handled; $3,888 of sugar; $1,115 of  hay; $637 of spray; $1,160 of powder;  $674 of coal oil; $162 for lime and  similar amounts for wire and nails.

Under the head discussion of topics  for the good and welfare of the institute T. M. Edmondson was slightly,  prominent. He got in his annual  kick about not getting notices monthly as to date" and place of meeting,  and also nad a suggestion that the  secretary send put notices on the  arrival of each car quoting pries on  the stuff in it. Mr. Edmondson got  less consideration than at previous  meetings, due possibly to the fact that  he had not spent & dollar with the  Institute during all 1916.  Mr. Lidgate also spoke briefly at  this point and among other things  urged immediate consideration of  accumulating resei-ve capital so that  when a favorable market presented  itself the Institute would be in a position to take advantage of the lower  prices and stock up for future needs.  Elaborating on the why and wherefore of these higher prices Mr. Lidgate said : "To take up another point,  along with the rest of the world, shall  we say, we haye felt the effect of the  high cost of living, and increased taxation both direct and indirect,  more  particular indirect, generally attributed to   war   and   conditions  arising  therefz-cjm.    Gentlemen, when it can  be shown and proyen that millionaires  are being made out of the liyes and  blood of millions of common humanity  in this war carnage should be enough  to cause all of us to pause and  get  down  to serious thinking as to the  why and wherefore of all this, and the  increased burden  and   harder conditions   we   are   experiencing.     Under  cover of   this wai*r_scourge unbridled  liberty or license has been taken advantage of by the avaricious and unscrupulous wealthy, profit-mongering'  class, and we are" the victims; along  with the rest of the producing class.    .  .    In   our co-operative efforts to-day  we find ourselves up" against a highly-  organized vicious circle,   if we may so  term  it,   both on  the economic   and  political field of action, and we make  the assertion believing it to be as true  as two and two  make four, and it is  T   *- ���������  this: That all the labor (which includes every one who-js doing necessary  ' Ifi-M**  25-27WESTA1.T3TSNAVE.

If so be,  then it means co-operative effort and  endeavor  on   our  part  in  aiding to  build up and establish a co-operative  commonwealth,   which    shall    bring  social justice, peace and plenty, to nil  humanity.    We gave vou   a   text   a  year ago.     Lest it bo forgotten we  will repeat it,   " Industrial   unity is  strength, political unity is victory."  Puste it in your hat and reflect on it  on rainy days and odd moments.   Its  the key to the solution and  the way  out from  under the  unjust burdens  and hardships that are pressing upon  us to-day.   Let us get together and  pull together, and  bo as livo iish that  battle against tho adverse curront and  not as dead ones that just float with  the current heading   for  stagnation  and obliv4on."  Mr. Littlejohn had somo remarks to  offer aa affecting tho present system  of auditing and also on the check tho  directors mako of tho invoices to discover if tho Nulling prion is right.  Howoyer, as tho hour was getting on  it was decided to adjourn tho discussion until tho regular meeting on tho  n"������lb, when a yuvy interesting r.er.slon  may ho looked for.  aforementioned facts hie proyed'"hind;-'  self to be. the biggest hypocrite that  has ever travelled the'pike between  Halifax   and  Hong Eongv and  the  patriotic  feelings  and fervor  which  coursed through his   veins well nigh  consumed him, and beyond that his  oratorical and argumentative powers  were such as  to foe well nigh unbe-  lieveable; so great in  fact were they  that by way of comparison Solomon  in ail his wisdom appears as would a  tallow dip alone:side of Old  Sol or the  sun at midday.    Thus  it ccmes about  that in order to gain notoriety among  his fellows he conceived the idea of  discoursing to them upon all and sundry occasions, his  two  main themes  being as follows:   "The art of playing  the  patriotic   game without  costing  you a cent" and the other "The art of  doing your duty towards your neigh  bor by doing him up;" and as by way  of variation*   or  sandwiched  in   be-  tweeu, he   took  a lively interest in  matters pertaining to the ^future welfare  of  discharged war veterans,   a  very laudable and praiseworthy occupation be it said, provided same be not  actuated- by   ulterior  motive,   which  might be termed the fly in  the ointment in his case at any rate.    Further,  the venom and vengeance harboring  beneath his hide was  of the rankest,  and woebetide the man or- beast that  incurred his   wrath  and displeasure-  Ami thus we come to say  that, while  he made it appear ostensibly that the  welfare of the discharged soldier filled  him   with solicitude on their behalf,  yet behind it all the inner man was  secretly aiming to wreak his yenge-  ance and  injure   some other   one in  the so  doing,_and to   enjoy the privilege and satisfaction of picking the  same   offender's   bones.    And   so   he  cogitated within himself to accomplish  this dual purpose.    Evil machinations  preyed   upon   his  mind by day and  by night until he heard not the still  small     voice     within      which    said  "Wherefore   ignorest thou thy duty  towards thy neighbor seeking rather  his hurt.    Behold now thou art a man  possessed   of   much    of   this   world's  goods, including lands both in the east  and   west.    Thon -hast   many   more  acres than   thon   canst   till   lying at  great   distances apart, _giye   now   a  portion unto thy  needy  brother who  has returned after risking his life for  his country,   and about   whom thou  art so greatly concerned." "Nay, nay,"  said he, "Gold is my god  and though I  the heavens should fall I cannot part j  with that which will eyentually bring  to nie that unearned increment, besides, there is all kinds of vacant lands  lying adjacent to the north pole, and  furthermore my    .    .    ..."   and to  this day his further thoughts remain  a mystery for, sad to  relate,   the evil  passions    consumed    him    then   and  there and all that remains is a dust  spot that marks his once haying been.  Let us beware lest our ending be like  unto his.

Thanks to great rubber plantations established, irt  the face of criticism and ridicule, many years before  in hcr tropical Dominions, Great Britain at the outbreak of war held a iirm aud tightening1 grip on the*  world's supply of raw rubber���������a grip reinforced by her  dotninnting navy. .From 60% in 1914, the production  of these plantations has grown this year to 75% or  the whole world's output, leaving only about half the  requirements of the United States alone to comc from  all other sources.  Tiie result has been that the needs of the Allies,  enormous though they are, have been plentifully supplied, while Germany has been reduced to registered  mails and the " Dcutschland" in desperate attempts  to mitigate lier rubber famine. Neutrals have been  allowed all the. rubber they want, at prices actually  lower than before the war, so long as they prevent  any of it from reaching thc enemy, while Canada and  other parts of the Empire have an abundant supply at  equally favorable Government regulated prices.

Q-  Whilc- thc cave warfare, which 4ias  been adopted by the Germans as  their latest style of defensive tactics,  is being greatly facilitated at the  southern extremity of .the Franco-  British offensive by the existence of  caves dug by the Huguenots, it is  being* even more facilitated at the  northern extremity of the "big push"  by the existence of the entire underground villages.  The caves, cellars and vaults dug  by the Huguenots in thc province of  Santerre, both for refuge and for concealing their valuables, date back to  the religious -wars which were waged in France several centuries ago.  The subterranean villages in the  northern part of Picardy are of a  more antique' origin and go back to  feudal times.

By a conibination of circumstances, the immense navigable canal  which was being dug in the northern part of France when the war  began, and which was to have been  one of France's greatest inland  waterways, skirts on the west and  constitutes an additional asset to  the Germans for their new line of  defense.

Thc Secretary for War was , at  home, in Downing street, receiving  a portrait of his daughter, Miss Ol-  wen Lloyd George (in Welsh costume), painted by Mr. Ellis Roberts.

BRITAIN'S FORESSGHfSAYES WORLD  FROM BIG RISE IN COSY OF RUBBER  Financing and Fostering of Rubber Plantations in Her Colonies  Now Proving a Boon to the Consumer in Keeping  "' Prices Down  When     the    British    Government  some years ago began to take an active interest in fostering thc rubber  industry, and iinaiiy succeeded i������  practically cornering the rubber market, it is far from probable that the  wisdom shown in this connection was  properly appreciated at the inception  of the movement.

It is a gift for  the benefit of a very gallant division  in the field. There are so many heroes in this conflict that it is almost  impossible in dispatches to enumerate them. There arc so many deeds  of valor, and thc endurance of these  gallant men at the front. They have  j-riven courage a new meaning, they  have given it a uew standard, a new  \ rating. It means something more  than it ever meant before. Wc never  understood thc word until the story  of this war burst upon us. We  never knew, not that amongst us we  had a man here and a man there who  had a heart of gold and was capable  of daring and enterprise, who had  valor firing his soul, but that we had  thousands, myriads of them spread  all over the land, in the highest and  in the humblest homes.  That is thc revelation of this war.  A treasure, an inexhaustible treasure,  hidden in the heart of* the humblest  man- ~ of patriotism, consecration,  courage,     devotion,  In all, about 1,200 Indians have enlisted. They are distributed by provinces as follows: Ontario, 802; Quebec, 101; Manitoba, 89; Saskatchewan, 57; Prince Edward Island; 24:  British Columbia, 17; Nova Scotia,  14; New Brunswick, 12; Alberta, 9,  and Yukon, 2.  Of this number eight are commissioned officers, as follows: Capt. Geo.  Smith, 4th Battalion; Capt. Ormond  Picard, 12th Battalion; Capt. Charles  Smith, 114th Battalion; Lieut. Cameron D. Brant, 4th Battalion (killed  at Ypres); Lieutenants Milton Martin, James D. Moses, John R. Steac-  ey and C. A. Cooke, of the 114th Battalion.  A notable demonstration of the  traditional loyalty of a distinguished  Indian family was the death in action  at Langemarc of Lieut. Brant, who  was a great-great-grandson of the  famous Capt. Joseph Brant, who rendered such valuable service to the  British cause in 1776. Two other lineal  descendants of the    great chief-  exalted attach-1 tain, Corpl, Albert W. L.

It gives a new pride to  humanity, and a new pride in the  land that has produced so many myriads of heroes. Wc had thought  these qualities were qualities of the  great, of the select; but they are all  great, they are all select. It is a nation of heroes; \ve never knew wc  were capable of 'such great things;  and I agree with the very timely  word uttered by Miss Pennant that,  if we can do such things in war, wc  can also do them in peace.  Peace has its sacrifices. Peace demands valor, peace demands devotion; and it will bc an unutterable  insanity if thc lesson which this war  has laugbl us of tho. possibilities of  our people in unity, in sacrifice for  a common end, in devotion to the  cause of a common humanity, and  of our common country, should be  lost, when the flag has been brought  back triumphant from the field of  labor and of toil.

Mr. Numano predicts that then  will bc closer trade relations between  Japan and Canada. The Japancsi  havc been filled with admiration at  the magnificent fight Canada hai  made.
