 A turnout fully as large as that in  evidence on annaal-tneeting night was  ���������ou hand for the January meeting on  Friday eyening last. President Cook  was in 'charge of proceedings and con  siderable important business was  transacted.     " ���������.-,'���������/a  The correspondence included a letter  from the department advising that the  usual grant of $25 from the government to help defray the secretary's  salary had been withdrawn, and also  asking that the membership fee Be  raised from 50 cents to $laryear. The  gayernmenfc made no announcement  as to what grant would be made on  the paid up membership, further than  to say some amount would be granted  and that special consideration would  be shown those Institutes that have  been active of late. The meeting decided to keep the fee at 50 cents a year,  and take whateyer consequences the  government might inflict.  There will be no big Institute  annual 'convention at Victoria this  year, but so far as possible, the advisory board will do the work undertaken by this gathering, and to assist  theni with their labors all resolutions  submitted should be in the hands of  J. B. Brown, Vernon, on or before  February 4th.  V, Another bit of illuminating correspondence is the following letter that  T.M. Edmondson was guilty ofwrit .���������  "without an*" solicitation b" the  Here  that aroused the audience to a modest  outburst of applause.

If only she would con-  iess to him! If only i-dic would, open  tier heart and let him know just how  far she was involved in lhe tragedy  ,ii   Rathhone's  death!  .But his lips were saeled. Even in  that one moment when he siood  looking at her wiih yearning eyes,  he. saw her flinch, aud grow shy, as  if doubting his word.  So he drew her gently towards  him, and saying in a tender whisper,  "Good-night, my dear," kissed her  lightly on ilm for<lii':id, between ihe  waves of  her fair hair.  Then, still holding her hands, lie  stood back, and looked at hcr steadily.  "God take care or yon, and put it  hi your heart to tell me the whole  truth���������some   day!"  said  he  solemnly.  And then, as he heard a sob in her  comment on hcr looks. Even Lady  Acrise. recognized that it would be  discreet not to see. anything.  Sir Penywern was uneasy and anxious, and kept glancing at thc door  as if he expected an unwelcome visitor. This being perceived by the two  ladies, they found themselves watching the. door, too, and the meal passed in thc most uncomfortable fashion  for everybody.  Daphne took care, for one thing,  never to meet her husband's eyes;  while l���������ady Acrise studied the countenances of both hcr companions fur-  lively, keeping up a flow of inconsequent, talk which the other two, Jin  the circumstances, welcomed heartily  as leaving them at liberty to bc silent.  But after breakfast, as Daphne  feared, shc became her aunt's easy  prey.  Lady Acrise  trotted alter her into  impatience.    "How can one help scr-**1  vants talking*.     You've said yourself  one can't."  "No. But one can bc a little discreet, and sec that there is nothing  for them to go upon."  "There's always something* to gossip about tu every house," said  Daphne.  "Not  generally so  much  as  tliere  is  here,"  retorted Lady Acrise,  suddenly dropping    something    of    her.  honeyed    sweetness,  ��������� and     speaking  with asperity.  "Well, we needn't say any more  about it," said Daphne hastily.  "No dear.

But it will  clear the air,  and after that we shall have peace.'"'"  Daphne  was   listening  in   fascinating interest and final  horror to  this  outline of the future. Then shc shook  her head with decision.  "You are wrong, quite wrong," she  said. "There is no blackmailing  I gang; there is only a poor man in  distress. And I am sufficiently involved," she went oni cautiously, "to  feel bound to help him."  "Very well. I mustn't ask questions, and of course argument is useless. But if you like we'll have a bet  upon thc scandal."  He was speaking in a lighter tone,  as if he had thrown off a weight from  his mind.  Perhaps he had. For as he knew  that they were now riding direct for  the precipice, he may have felt some  satisfaction in -having- at least made  up his mind as to  their fate.  Daphne, however, shook her head  ���������diffidently.  "I don't want," she said, "to have  any    bets.

Again and again he was tempted  to go in, to take her in his arms, to  plead with her, to try to drag down  that barrier which stood between  them.  But he fought down the impulse,  knowing that he must stand by his  pledged word; knowing, too, that  time and circumstances would both  work for him, and that he must wait,  wait patiently.  aiCHES  You receive a generously-  filled box of Sure, Safe  TJoTitS-  CHAPTER XVIII.  There was a strong feeling of constraint about the little party which  met at breakfast on thc following  morning.  Daphne, who took care not to  come down until both Sir Penywern  and Lady Acrise were seated, was  terribly pale and haggard-looking.  But neither of the others made    any  first  care  was her little birds.  Then, for the first time, Lady  Acrise dropped thc mask and spoke  with   unmistakable  anxiety.  "Daphne,1' she said, "this is get ling  too terrible! There were"people running about all ovcr the grounds last  night, up to quite late. You and Sir  Penywern left mc alone, and I had  nothing to do but to look out at the  moon. Well, the moon wasn't all I  saw."  Daphne turned round in desperation.  "If    you     saw    anybody     in    the  grounds,"  shc said     quickly, "it was '  Pen and I.    We were out quite late."'  "Oh!"    said    Lady    Acrise,    drily.'  "Then your excuse of a headache was  just    to  get rid  of    mc,   I  suppose,  dear?"  "No, no, of course not. I thought  a walk in the grounds would do me  good, and I went out���������fpr a few moments.     That  w"as  all.'5  "And you were waving a pocket-  handkerchief from the terrace," said  Lady Acrise. "Not, of course," she  went on hastily, "that there's any  harm in waving a pocket-handkerchief. But it looked just as if you  and Sir Penywern���������and���������and one  other person, were playing some sort  of child's game, Puss in the Corner,  you know, or Biind Man's Buff, or  something  of  that  sort."  Daphne was silent.. Lady Acrise  had seen too much, that was clear.  She went on:  "Of course, there's no harm iu  piaying Blind Man's Buff m one's  garden, but���������won't it makc the servants talk, dear?"  "Oh,    I   can't help    it if  they  do       Even    a good physician  talk." said Daphne with a gesture of I from bad  to worse.  ASK. FOR  T* \ 1   9  ������  Mtt?%*m  Parlor" ffiatciies  &.

They restore perfect efficiency  to the kidneys by nourishing the nerves which  control kidney action, and thus enable th** system  to get rid of uric -acid and other impurities which arc the cause  of Urinary Troubles, Dropsy, and Rheumatism.  Dr. Chas. Forshaw, D.Sc, F.C.S., etc., ihe well-known  scientist, says: "I have thoroughly tested Dr Cassell's Tablets,  and can conscientiously recommend them as an eminently safe  and elective remedy for all forms of nerve and bodily weakness. My knowledge of Dr Cjtssell's Tablets leads me to the  opinion that the ingiedients form a remarkably potent medicine,  quite safe for young and old in cases o( nervous prostration,  debility, anaemia, loss of riesh, malnutrition, children's weakness, spinal and nerve paralysis, and many forms of stomach  and kidney troubles."  Dr. Cassell's Tablets raise the vital standard of thc entire  system, and thus promote kidney health and general health  when other means fail.     ^  Dr. Cassell's Tablets are Nutritive. Restorative, Alterative,  and Anti-Spasmodic, and of great Therapeutic value in all  derangements of the Nerve and Functional Systems in old or  young.   They are thc recognised home remedy for Nervous  Breakdown, Nerve and Spinal Paralysis, Infantile l-^ralysis,  Rickets, St. Vitus' Dance, Antenna, Sleeplessness, Kidney  Disease, Dyspepsia.

Some of us  may have entertained a thought that  uhe surgical and medical treatment of  Jie soldier has not kept pace with  che horrible mutilations caused by  modern scientific machines of destruction.  An efficient medical service has a  great inrluencc on the morale of an  army. A soldier has to make great  sacrifices, and the knowledge _ that  behind the guns is mobilized a highly  skilled army of surgeons and nurses  encourages him greatly. The mind  cannot conceive what the horrors of  war would bc jn the absence of the  Red Cross service.  There is a real comfort in the  knowledge of what surgical skill can  accomplish nowadays.

Minard's Liniment Cures Diphtheria.  Germany's Corning Mercantile Fleet  A writer to the old Quarterly Review is telling an astounding story in  the pages of that magazine. In substance he says that 37,000 men are at  work in the three government shipyards at Whilemshaven, Kiel, and  Danzic, and 57,000 in the big private  yards. All these yards are working  24 hours a day. The object of this  lavish array_ of workers is to erect  ships that will beat anjrthing yet on  the ocean, so that at one great stroke  of united action, the Germans will  capture the trade of the world.  The Object  "Concentration! Concentration!  That is what wc need in this age,"  declared an incisive voice, the voice ���������  ot the'young man familiar with modern catchwords. But his elderly  companion looked at him over hcr  spectacles.  "Perhaps I am wrong, but it seems  to me that it makes a lot of difference what you're going to conceit*  trate on," shc answered slowly, with*"  an indescribable little emphasis or-  thc last word.  She was right. The trouble with  the great mass of unsuccessful mankind is not so much lack of concentration as it is concentrating' on. a  wrong object.

British Society Begins Campaign to  Raise $500,000 in America  The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, of Great  Britain, which is the Red Cross for  dumb animals in the European war,  has established an American auxiliary in New York City, and is shortly  to begin a campaign to raise $500,000  in the United States with which to  care for thc thousands of army horses and mules whose suffering, it is  slated, "is one bf thc conspicuously  pitiful features of the war."  Under     the  chainrianship  of ll".'

Use Rubber To Save Leather  -It Is Heeded In.The War!  Rubber  Supply  Is   Ample���������*  Leather Is Scarce and Very High  Leather is being worn out faster today than ever  before in the history of the world, while production  is considerably less than a few yc?._S ^gO; While thc  consequent shortage is keenly felt by the civilian  who has to pixy half as much again for his own and  his family's shoes, it is even more serious for the  Government, which must supply hundreds of thousands  of soldiers.  Rubber, too, is being used in enormous quantities on account of thc war���������one British manufacturer,  for instance, is working on a rubber boot order for  thc army which will take i4,0U0,O0O pounds of rubber,  fnbric and chemicals. But thc supply, thanks to thc  great rubber plantations in Britain's tropical Dominions, is easily keeping up with thc demands, and raw  rubber, despite a war tax of 7j/%, is actually cheaper-  today than before the war. So, though thc fabric and  chemicals used cost nearly double, rubber footwear  has not gone up very much in. price.  These conditions naturally arc leading thoughtful,  thrifty, patriotic Canadians to save leather just as  much as possible by wearing rubbers, overshoes, high  rubber boots nnd heavy farm rubbers. In addition  to the very substantial saving in cost, rubber footwear has decided advantages for wet or cold weather  around the farm or in lhc woods.

'       -       -      - BRITISH COLUMBIA  Editor Review :  Sir.���������Would, it not be possible to  suggest to the powers that be a variation on the old theme in this Valley,  the Reclamation of the Kootenay  Flats. The suggestion I am about to  make does not involve the expenditure  of any public moneys or tbe permanent alienation of the overflowed lands  to private interests and would, I believe, add largely to the production of  hay and feed on the Flats, and would  be a benefit directly or indirectly to  every resident in the Cx*eston district.  It is, briefly, that the Provincial Government, grant leases to bona fide settlers here for a term of, say, five year*s  at ;v small annual rental and containing covenants that the lessees perform a reasonable amount of improvements���������non-payment of rent or nonperformance of covenants to cancel  the lease. It shonid not be a difficult  matter to work out the details of such  questions as fair allotments of the  leases, the area to be leased to each  individual, and other provisions duly  safeguarding the public interest.  The question naturally arises ' how  the granting of such leases could possibly increase the amount of hay produced on the Flats. The answer is  that it has been suggested by the Dir  ector of the Experimental'Farms at  Ottawa that a variety of tame hay  could be growfi'!bn' them. ..He stated  "The only grass I know of that is likely to do well under such circumstances (namely, the annual flooding) is the  Awnless Bronie Grass (Bromis Inerm-  is). I would suagest that this be tried  in the district you refer to and I think  it will giye good satisfaction. It is a  very strong and vigoi-ous growing  grass, and will do well under many-  adverse conditions. About 15 pounds  of seed to the acre would probably be  sufficient." It would, therefore, seem  that right at our doors are many hundreds of acres of laud capable of producing good crops of the tame hay  mentioned above under present condition*?. Any rancher here can readily  understand 'what it would mean to  him to have a five-year lease of say 80  acres of good hay land that only required to be fenced, ploughed and  seeded down.  ] shall not take up your space by  endeavoring to discuss the many mat-  tors of detail thai necessarily arise in  a question of thia kind. But it would  seem highly advisable for the people  of this Valley to get together at an  early date and urge the Government  to take action along the lines indicated  above. If our residents don't delay  and the Government approves of the  policy there is no x*eason why hundreds of acres should not he under lease  next spring. G. A. M. Young.

"  And it did. For two reasons it  proved to Captain Bartlett himself to  be thc most momentous trip of his  life. First, because the Karluk,  which was an old whaler, was not  built for withstanding ice pressure;  and secondly, because the winter of  1913-14 was unprecedented in the an-  Captain Bartlett felt that assistance  must be obtained at whatever cost,  and the risk was undertaken by him,  as being responsible for thc safety of  all those who had been placed in his  care by Stefansson.

The journey took the two men over  two months; it was a tr������p never ac  expedition naci Deen originany vtnaer  taken by the National ~ Geographic  Society; but the Canadian Government felt that since the country to be  explored was Canadian territory it  was only fitting that thc expedition  fly its flag and bc financed from its-  treasury. Aud so, at the earnest request of Canada's Premier, .Sir Robert Borden, the National Geographic  Society relinquished its/direction.  The main work of "the party aboard  ihe Karluk was to be tile exploration  of the region lying west of the Parry  Islands, and especially that portion  lying west and northwest from  Prince Patrick Island. If land were  discovered a base was to be established on it, but if ice were encountered,-- then the party was to work  round to the southwest _ corner of  Prince Patrick Island, or, failing  that, to the west corner *.. of Banks  Island. ' '  On June  17,  1913, the Karluk left  Esquimalt    and    made    for    Nome,  where she stayed until July 13.    The  next day she reached Port Clarence,  and after staying there some thirteen  days to make final preparations started    out on the    great voyage.      She  made   two   stops  further, north     for  trading purposes, and then continued  on her journey, encountering the first  see    about    August    1.    Misfortunes  seem to have begun early, for seven  days  after  meeting  the first i.ce  the  Karluk was  caught in the pack and  it was found    impossible to use the  engines.    However,    the    vessel got  free from the pack ice some days later and managed to get as far east  as Lion Reef, and here, by the end of  August,  she  was caught and frozen  in.  The freezing,in of the Karluk put  complished    before by    any man, an  adventure- on   which   untold   dangers  and sufferings were experienced.

But the Bear had to put  back into Nome for coal supplies after nearly reaching Wrangell Island,  then she resumed her voyage of rescue.  On September 8, a schooner was  sighted near the locality in which  the shipwrecked party had been left.  It was the King and Winge, and the  Karluk party was found_ on board.  They had been rescue'd by the  schooner, all but three, who had died  at Wrangell Island camp, and by October 24 the whole company had returned safely to Nome.  This is the story which Captain  Bartlett relates in the book "The  Last Voyage of the Karluk," with an  earnestness that comes only from  one who has fought with the stern  forces of nature in the frozen seas.  Yet it is touched here.and there with  a humor that lights up the grim perils of the arctic regions.

The drift continued and the Karluk was at thc mercy of the masses  of moving ice. In October shc was  drifting along in a northeasterly direction, and thc ship's company prepared for an extended stay on the  moving ice. They set up winter  quarters on board and made themselves as comfortable as possible  during the gales which blew continuously through October and November.  The sun disappeared on November  11 and the ship's party set ubout making thc best of the long arctic winter. Watches were arranged, work,  recreation, and exercise all had their  allotted place, and on Christmas Day  the party indulged in sports on the  ice. It was Captain Bartlctt's fourth  Christmas in the arctic, "and he call*}  would have been established.  It is the glory of England that in  these later centuries she has always  been in opposition to that one of the  continental powers which at any particular time aimed at the domination  of all  Europe.

Is it not a glory given  to all the  world to have merited    the hate of  all thc peoples who, in thc course of  the centuries, at their hour of madness, have  tried  to impose by arms  their domination upon  Europe?

A man struck, say, on the arms was  not disabled and ou the second day  thought lightly of the burn, but on  the third day, or at latest on the  fourth, he died. This new devilry  produces clotting of the blood and  consequent death.  A suffocating revolver, according  to the correspondent of a Petrograd  journal, is a new weapon which lias  been distributed" among German officers. It is a small and well-made  weapon, and when it .is fired a small  cloud of suffocating gas escapes from  the cartridge instead of a bullet. Thc  gas does not cause death, but those  who inhale it become insensible for  several hours.  It is stated that the Germans use  this revolver for the purpose of obtaining prisoners near the Russian  trenches, their obvious object being  to compel these prisoners to divulge  information as to what is going on  behind 'the Russian lines. A week  or two ago the Russians succeeded  in capturing some of these revolvers,  whicli have been brought to Petrograd. *    . ���������       '  Our own troops in France and  Flanders not so long ago made acquaintance with man-traps in the enemy-trenches. They are constructed  on the principle of the old-fashioned  rat-trap with powerful jaws that  clasp together when a spring has  been released. They are sufficiently  strong to break the leg of a soldier  who incautiously treads on the  "platform" of the trap.  In dry weather this barbarous contrivance is covered up with loose  earth. In wet waether it is concealed  in the mud. Our troops, of course,  have been warned of the existence of  these devilish devices, and wc believe  the man-trap has not secured many  British or French victims. But it is  another example of "frightfulncss"  added to the long reckoning which  one day thc kulttircd German will  have to face.

His particular object  was to show the advantage of diversified farming over grain growing.  "So great has been the transformation of thc past hundred years," said  Dean Rutherford, "the people of 1800  would not know what the^ farmer of  today is doing when working on the  laud. There has been a wonderful  development of machinery, new seeds  and plants and immense improvement in animals."  He then pointed out the condition  which existed in England at one  time, when the proper rotation- of  crops was not understood, before the  feeding of stock was brought to p.  scientific basis. Yet in spite of science there was the high cost of living-. The speaker said he could remember the farm in Ontario where  everything that was needed to maintain life aud health was grown and  made on the farm, and the only cash  product, was potash, which was sold  at the nearest market and the money  used to pay the taxes..That, he considered, Was "mixed farming." Yet  one farm he knew, which had been  "mixed farmed," today had a handsome dwelling uot forty feet from  the' old log house of the original  owner, and a grandson ran the farm..  He had been educated at college, and  was now conducting his farm as a  highly specialized dairy farm. He  raised many tithes per acre what his  grandfather did and the farm was  more fertile than    in    its    virginity,  O-  1  he said this���������Saskatchewan was sec-  of livestock and its value.  He then told of the buying of Saskatchewan stock by ranchers and  farmers in Montana, and how the representatives of men across the line  were buying Saskatchewan livestock  on the Winnipeg market, picking out  the cream of what was shipped. He  told of how the officials of ihe University became aware of this and the  result was that a representative was  placed on the market and during the  month of October 6,000 head of stock  from the province was sold on the  Winnipeg market and shipped baclc  to buyers in Saskatchewan, and the  present month would see a larger  number. j  ���������'..���������...

Benefits  from  Drinking Water  Two Quarts Every Day Is Not Too  Much for a Natural Person  The often debated question of  whether or not we should drink  water with our meals is again  brought before the public; this tune  by .Professor Philip ii. Hawk, Ph������D.,  professor of physiological chemistry  at Jelferson Medical College, writing  in the Ladies' Home Journal.

This man knew the business  side of \ large _ quantities ^  of water    at meal  farming. His grandfather and his  father followed farming as an employment, while the son made it a  business on scientific lines.  In Saskatchewan, he considered it  a good sign for thc future when the  men of the city began to turn their  attention to farming. The mines  would play out and the forests be depleted, and yet agriculture would be  thc basic industry. Saskatchewan he  considered one of the most wonderful estates God had ever given man  of development* and it therefore devolves on those living in the province  to put the best they had into the development of it. Besides being rich  in soil, thc Province of Saskatchewan  had a climate adapted to wheal  growing. Men were coming from  the States buying and leasing the  land-to grow wheat, for they knew  that wheat is the province's best  crop.  The speaker then turned to the  evolution of agriculture in Wisconsin  and Southeast Minnesota. In 1850  the total wheat crop of thc latter  state was 1,410 bushels, in 1880 it had  jumped to 34,000,000, and in 1900 to  81,000,000. The process of development was just thc same as Saskatchewan, with thc exception that it had  time is very desirable. The food is  .more readily digested and its diges-"  tion products are more quickly and  completely absorbed. Various materials are flushed out of the system  and harmful bacteria do not thrive  so well in the large intestine.  For a person who is not normal,  who ' has ulcer of the stomach or  trouble with his kidneys, Proi.~14awic  counsels the advice of sl phxrsician before much water is taken with ��������� the  meals. Some types of kidney disorder have been shown to be benefitted by drinking water. Otlier types  might possibly not be so benefited. .-  Drinking1-" water immediately before a meal is found to be good because' it causes the appearance of digestive fluid in the stomach. Although Prof. Hawk states that water at a temperature of 60 degrees is  best for drinking, he does not share  the strong popular prejudice-against  ice water. The stomach warms it up  to body temperature in 20 minutes,  he says. But if you are stout and do  not wish io gain flesh, look outi The  drinking of water with meals makes  one fat.  Drinking a glass of water ia the  morning is recommended because it  stimulates thc formation of fresh  gastric juice, lt also cleanses and re-  vice will bc a gigantic attempt to  poison the atmosphere over a wider  area than has hitherto been conceived.

Yet today, in one county of Minnesota, there    was less    wheat    being  grown  than. 20 years ago.    Thc soil  was just as rich and the farmers just  as  intelligent.     What  was   the  reason of thc change?    A trip through  the county    would show creameries,  silos,     fields of alfalfa,     clover and  otlier feed crops for cattle and pigs.  The land had become too    valuable  to grow wheat.    Wheat is extensive  farming, said the speaker, while the  Minnesota farmers  had come  to in  to mind other Christnmscs he spent  without troubling hcrsclf���������Hic adver-  in thc polar regions.

Ten  days after this a great crack appeared in the vessel, and the men prepared to leave hcr. There was a rush to  save all the stores possible, and they  were just in time, for on January ll,  1914, the Karluk sank iu thirty-eight  fathoms of water.  In the camp that wus net up near  the locality of the wreck the party  .spoilt the winter, following the run-  tine set up on board the vessel. Captain Bartlett tells, with a liveliness of  detail, of thc activities of the company of shipwrecked explorers; of  the parties that set out to make the  landward journey, and of the final  migration of the whole company to  Wrangell Inland.

When Western Canada was  first beginning to be settled up, the  government made a generous endowment for thc future of education  by reserving two whole sections in  every township (i.e., onc-cightcenth  of the total available land), thc sale  of which should principally defray  the co3t of education, thus greatly  reducing the amount to be met by  local taxation. As districts have been  settled up, or the cause of ������������������duration  has needed financial assistance, these  school lands have been disposed of.  At Scdgcwick 16,636 acres were  sold, and Uic price realized wan in  excess of $20 per acre. The highest  price fetched was $50 per acre. At  Provost, 17,911 acres were sold at  an average of ovcr $14 per acre, the  ' " sliest being $36.  I'urrhar.rrr,     were   confined   rd'Yior.l  Prof, Hawk advises two quaUs.
