Over-Grading Fruit  In discussing tlie fruit situation with  Dominion Fruity Inspector Fletcher  this week The RU-VIEW was surprised  to learn that Y*fch"e , good reputation  gained by tue 'v.#uey in former years  for shippiiig .iipiiorriaiy high 'class  apples, according tb grade, is already  beginning? to isurffOr, either through  cat-elesane&sjon-t-i'e part of some growers, or by-sn attempt to 'ip������������t one  over" on the inspector by over-grading  their apples.       ?l" ,  The number of' boxes Mr. Fletcher  has hod to ordeiCre-paeked or suffer a  lower grading is sdarmiag, and during  his absence we .learn shipments have  gone out that l������fy;e -been turned down  by .the inspectoi^at prairie points.   ''  Too much attention cannot be g^iven  to the packing of frnit. Over-grading  is an indictable', offence, with quite a  heavy fine attached, no matter whether the offence is detected at the point  of shipment or place of delivery���������and  there are numerous inspectors at work,  But by far the higgeSt consideration is  the loss of the splendid reputation  always enjoyed for a quite-fair pack  and quality fruit. -Eastern Canada  apple growers are suffering from the  effects of -exactly this same kind of  dishonesty and" their experiencs is  proving altogether too costly for a few  growers.to perpetrate on the Creston  valley.  So far as The Review can learn, in  his three yeare~TRfork?Mr. Fletcher's inspection has bean eminently fair. As  man to.rnan he^is entitled to the cooperation of- the ranchers. It is decidedly 'unpleasant to bjm to have to  order fruit repacked, but he is here to  see that the~; 3EVuit Marks Act is  lived up to, |^d proposes enforcing  these regulations ?__ all cases. ^ Injjjheir  otvn individ*imi������teri-^vt-s wSllwsf for  j the welfare of the district as a >whole  growers can ill afford to have rejieated  the dissatisfaction in evidence In the  early part of the week. .  ing up this subject of agriculture not  in theory feui in practice. He spoke  of the benefit to the so-called dull pupil���������one who was not as bright as his  companions at his books or figures, but  given this method to express his activity became one of the. brightest j������t  this particular work." He spoke of the  advantages, to the community as a  whole by having the school garden as  an. 'experimental, garden���������by finding  out what grains and foodstuffs are  best suited to any particular soil or  locality.  An informal discussion of the subject  followed, and at the close of the meeting it was proposed by Rev. W. G.  Blake, seconded by MrrSparfaes, that  a hearty vote of thanks be tendered  Mr. Gibson for his address.

He also won first prize for the  best peck of dried wrinkled-peas, and  first prize for the best peck of-smooth  peas; first prize for the best -sheaf of  winter wheat, and bast sheaf of spring  wheat; first prize for the best sheaf of  barley; first, prize, for the best five  sheaves of "wheat, any variety, approx.  imately 600 heads.

Dunn has just harvested between 500 and ^800 bushels of Canadian  peas from ra twenty acre tract at Moravia. ' He would have had 800 bushels  had- August been more favorable. He  .advocates -the raising, of peas in this  district and states that the soil and  climate are admirably * adapted rfoi*  their growth tfnd that'- crop failure is  impossible. Mr. Dunn figures that his  peas cleared for ,him $50 per-acre.  There is at least just very little variety in this week's war news. Wednesday's dispatches -.chronicled the  rather bad news ihat German submarines by daring attack had just  destroyed three British submarines,  with probably J.5Q0 dead. Two of tb*-  five attacking submarines were destroyed.  The sunken vessels are the_Abouker,  Hogue and Creasy and v*re supposed  to be part of more, than 100 British  war vessels that form a great line bottling the German fleet in Heligoland  bight at the mouth of the Elbe and the  entranca to the Kiel canal, They were  armored cruisers of an obsolete type,  built fourteen years ago.  Since last issue the Allies have pushed the Germans back a distance of  nearly eleven miles forcing them to  seek new defensive positions in rough  country beyond the Aisne. Heavy  fighting is still in progress with the  Germans forced to resist to the utter,  most, though ^almost exhausted and  suffering terrible 'losses. French  authorities claim victory is near.  Rainy -weather prevails which is extremely unfortunate for Germany as  it prevents the arrival of reinforcements which are sorely needed.  Inhere -is no check to the Servian  successes in Austria and the march of  the Russians through Galacia makes it  doubtful if Germany can send much  further help to the forces in Belgium  and France.

C  /T  Her  eance  ^  By Basil Tozer  rd,   Lock   &   Co.,   Limited  London,  Melbourne and Toronto  'J.  PROLOGUE  In one of the western states of the  American Union, not far from where  the district known as "The Bad  Lands'^ stretches its strange fantastic  desolation, there -is a farm oi some  live hundred a'6res; remote, lor the soil  is poor and barren so that there are  few other settlers near; aloof from  the common life o������ the district, for  that seemed to be its owner's will and  wish; alien and shunned, for strange  tales were told concerning it.  * It belonged to a white man, who  was seldom seen, but it was. chiefly  worked by negroes, of whom a small  colony resided on it. Another reason,  this, why its owner was looked on askance; for why. the neighborhood ask-  /ed indignantly, should the owner of  this farm appear to prefer laborers of  a color different from his own?  On the farm itself, which to the post  office and to surveyors was known as  Siddle's farm, but which in lhe neighborhood bore another and a strau~-  name, the most conspicuous building  was a tall, barn-like erection, surrounded by two wire fences, and hav-  sat, between the window and the burning furnace, she gazed far ont over the  rolling prairie towards a distant hill  where was the beginning of trees, a  %jnall wcod in fact, or "bush" as it  was caned in the neighborhood. Except for a few '���������bluffs" where poplars  and willows grew, there was no other  trees in sight, and the girl loved trees  and watched these in the distance,  and loved them none the less because  she knew the railroad passed through  them, running east and west.  "I see there is another case of lynching reported in the Athens Clarion,"  observed the noiseless old man abruptly.    "Shall 1 read it to you, Eira?"  "No," said the girl shuddering; "I  hate to hear o������ such things." '  "Editor Keene does not," returned  the old man; '"he gloats over his account as if he were telling of the  most heroic and noble action conceivable.    But he docs not like negroes."  "1 do not like Mr. Keene," "the girl  said: "1 don't think he is quite sane.  "Oh, sane enough," her companion  answered. "They say his wife was  murdered by a negro, and that ls why  he hates them so, but likely enough  that is only a tale. It seems this  negro murdered a white voman in  Missouri, so the neighbors took him  and burned hiin alive. Now, if that  negro had any enemies, thero was a  one death to gratify then.."  ''Grandfather," protested the girl,  "What ideas you have!"  "Why else do I live alone*'" the  old'man asked. "Solitude is the mother of ideas. Here is another for you.  Look." He rolled up the sleeve of the  ������ umei shirt he was wearing and  showed that between the wrist and  the elbow his skin was colored a deep,  shiny black, exactly like a pure-blooded negro's.    *7The most successful of  ing in the lower part of its wall not . ,.-,..>_ ��������� >   ...<- .  .-.���������,,.,_,������  a single window.

They became busy, and drew from  the glowing heart of the coals a cylinder-ihat they placed ������n water to cool:*  "I take men on their weakest 6lde>"  said the old man. "If 1 have solved  this problem at last, the whole'world  will come grovelliug at the feet of the  man without a nose. I'll fling them  alms or hot, as I've a mind."  "We do not know if it Is successful yet," said Eira quietly.  In fact,? neither of them showed  much excitement, though the work  they were engaged on, If successful  would echo over the whole world, and  make them perhaps the two most wonderful people in it. Working together quietly and skilfully, they took the  cooled cylinder from the Avater and  shook it over a linen-sheet spread out  ready on the table. There fell out. perhaps", a couple of Iiandfuls of black  dust, that and nothing more.  "Failure?' he said, "absolute failure."

But it  was plain that the occupant of this  building had no mind to be overlooked by prying eyes, and in point of fact  he seemed safe enough, "at any rate  till airships should be invented. This  strange building had also a tall chimney, from which clouds of smoke  would sometimes issue and drift away  over the surrounding prairie.  Within a large room on the upper  floor���������the rooms on the lower floor  having no windows, could cnly be used  for storing things in, and not for living or working in���������there sat this afternoon two people, tending a furnace  that burned in one corner with a  steady and intense glow.  Of these two one was a man and  old, the other a woman and young.  The man was tall and thin, with long  white hair and a head nobly shaped.  But when he lifted his face most people knew not whether to laugh or be  terrified, for by some cruel _reak of  nature he had teen born without a  nose. It was represented only by two  nostrils almost flat with his cheeks,  so that the centre of his face was  blank except for these two small holes.  The effect of this queer deformity was  to give an expression half terrible,  hall grotesque, and comic. His eyes���������  which, as soon as they saw you, looked at you as an enemy���������had in them  a Took of one apart, that seemed .to  tell how much this accident of conformation had separated him from his  fellows.

And if I  claimed to be a white man, it would  take some proving, eh?'"*  "It is very -wonderful," said the girl,  . -idently not much interested, "but  you could surely easily prove you were  white;   by  washing,  for  example?"  "Ah," the old man answered, "that  is the chief merit of this new dye of  mine. Washing simply makes it look  shinier and fresher. The only thing  to do, if you want to get rid . of it,  is to wait twenty-four hours, and thea  it will begin to fade, and dry friction  will bring it.ofE in flakes. I.could wish  it were more permanent, but twenty-  four hours should be ..-'enough for all  practical purposes?"  "But*%hat is the use of it?" Eira  objected. "No white man ever wants  to pretend to be a negro." "  "Who knows?" said the old man,  and an expression of mysterious hate  passed across bis strange noseless  face.  Eira, who did net look much interested in the discovery of this now coloring matter, rose to attend to the furnace.  "Is it not ready yet?" she asked.  "Almost," her companion answered.  "I am not hopeful of success, __iira. 1  have never mastered the secret your  father went to England to discover  and paid for there with his life."  Eira did not answer, though her  pale face took on a look of pain as at  the memory of old and sad days. She  went again to the window.  "There is that man Bryan along the  trail," she remarked, as if anxious to  change the conversation. "Grandfather  you do not rally mean to foreclose on  his farm, do you?"  "Unless he quits his drinking, T  shall," the old man answered.  "Oh, but think of his wife and how  hard she tries!" the girl exclaimed.  "I have told her plainly," said the  old man, speaking rather slowly, "that  unless Bryan quits drinking I shall  foreclose. She cried, of course, and  said there was fto hope of that, but I  told her 1 had a plan to cure him. I  have an Idea that if we gave hlni  some very great shock, that .might  sober him for the rest of hlb life.  Something drastic, I mean."  "What did Mrs. Bryan say?" asked  Eira.  "Oh, she declared she would be only  too willing to holp," said tho old man  with ngaih his old, mysterious smile.  "Grandfather," the Rhi nsked suddenly, "what mado you lond Bryan  that money?"  "Gratitude, to be sure," thc old  man answered. "I am ono of Nature's  jokes, I know, and folk show it by  screaming with laughter wherever 1  show my face without a noso.

Francis E. Clark, D.L.. LL.D., founder  of the Christian Endeavor Society and  president of the World's Christian Endeavor Union.  Thirty-three years ago Dr. .Clark  was pastor of the WUllBton Congregational Church of Portland, Maine. He  waa then a young man just fresh from  college and seminary. Wllllston church  was a typical New England church,  with all bf the problems and difficulties  that those churches had to meet.  ln the winter of 1880-1881 a series  of special evangelistic services in the  church had led a great many young  people into church membership. This  wise young pastor realized'-.that if  those young people were to be held for  tho <.hui-ch .they must be trained for  service, they''must have something to  do, and they must be shown how to  do it. He called his young people together, and on February 2, 1881, the  flrst Christian Endeavor Society was  formed, the first Christian Endeavor  pledge was signed, and the following  Suuday the first Christian Endeavor  prayer meeting was held.  From that small beginning in Portland the society has spread and  grown, until today there are more  than 80,000 Christian Endeavor societies in the world, with more than 4,-  000.000 members. .    ./  There are Christian Endeavor societies in every country of the world,  and each week meetings' are conducted iu more than eighty different languages; the literature of the society  has been printed in as many tongues.  Something like 1,500 daily, weekly,  and monthly periodicals carry Christian Endeavor news; more than 200  periodicals are devoted entirely to the  work of the Christian Endeavor. There  are more than 750 different kinds of  books, leaflets, cards, etc., published  for use in the work of the society a������d  las aids to it. Millions of pages o_> special printed matter are issued every  year..  From almost the very beginning of  the movement Christian Endeavor has  been interdenominational in its scope  and work. Though it began in a Congregational church, today there are S7  denominations that take Christian Endeavor as their young people's society  Personal  Property  A Cleveland attorney took the Mediterranean trip a mon tli ago. It was  his first time across the water, and he  stated on his return that- he would  have had a perfectly glorious time but  for the silly questions' asked him ny  customs officials.  It was oi*i the pier at New York  that his woes came to a climax. "Open  your trunk, please," commanded the  custom house officer? "Have you anything in there but personal property?"  he continued.-  "What do you mean by personal  property?" counted the lawyer.  "For heaven's sake! Don't you know  what personal property is?" The oific-  er looked up In amazement.  "I thought I did,'! answered the attorney, "and I can assure you that  there-is no real estate in my trunk."  ���������Cleveland Plain Dealer.  matter was fully considered, and? it  seemed to all that the wisest and  most substantia'', thing to do was *ta  erect a building which should be the  International christian "fOncleavor  headquarters. The plan calls for a  pve-story building,? ..two stories of  vvhlch shall be used for the offices qZ  the movement, and thus save the $5,--  OQO a year that is now paid in rents  for that purpose, and three stories of  lie building to bo rented to provide att  income for the extension of the r.ove--'  ment in this and other lands. This,  with the profits of the publishing department, which has paid all of tho  expenses of the worlc in North Amer-  k* for morcthan 25 years, will be sufficient to permanently finance th������ ���������  world-wide work ot this movement.  This, headquarters building is to  cost, when complete, including lot and  furnishings, $300,000. One-half of this  amount has been raised, and it i. the  purpose" of the society to raise tho  last $150,000 by November of this year.  A continent-wide campaign is- being  organized, and will be waged this falL  Every former Endeavorer. as w.ell as  present members of the society, will.be -  urged to have some part in this matter, which will mean so much to the  world-wide work of this great society,  and will be a fitting testimonial of  their appreciation -of'the great work  of Dr. Francis E. Clark, the world's  most travelled man.  Associated with Dr. Clark in the direction of the work- of Christian Endeavor in'North America ic a very etr  ficient group of executive officers. The  vice-president is Dr. Howard B. Grose,  missionary  editor of    the    Northern  Baptist churches.- Dr. Grose has been.  on tbe board of trustees of the Uuitetr!  Society of Christian Endeavor for 25  years. He designed tlie emblem of the  society, "a Christian Endeavor mono-  gram. The general secretary is William Shaw, LL.D., a Massachusetts Endeavorer. who. has. served as an officer of the United Society for more  than 25 years* The treasurer, Hiram  NT. Lathrop, is a ��������� "prominent Boston  business man, who as an unpaid of* ,  Seer, gives: a vast amount of time to  the work of Christian Endeavor. Amos  R. Wells, Litt.

The portentous solemnity of countenance has gone out with  the "blacks" that used to be essential  for the duty of standing at "the  plate." Only last Sunday, says a correspondent in the Glasgow News, I  laid down my mile under the gaze of  quite a sprightly deacon wearing a  soft gray hat and a suit of light  tweeds! When daddy stands at the  plate a certain small boy finds It difficult to observe due decorum as he  passes in to worship. In fact, lie  shows a desire to take his parent's  hand and .tand at tho receipt of collection too. On Sunday, as I sat listening to the chink of tho coin in tho  "plate" In tho vestibule, I heard a  young volco uplifted In argument with  i fond mamma: "But, mummy. It's  daddy! Ilo'll lot tui ln for nothing.  Can't T keep my penny for another  time?"  Jutlfllno  Distance  Most people aro umiwuro that the  apparent distance of an object    depends upon tho use of both eyes. This  fact,    however,    can    bo    HtrlKlngly  ably mo're Methodist Christian En  deavor. societies than those of any  other denomination, though in North  America many of Yth'e Methodist  churches have a purely denominational  young people's society. On this con  tinent there are more societies in  Presbyterian churches than any other  denomination; the Christian church  hr ; the second largest number of societies, tlie Congregational third, the  Baptist fourth. In England, Burma  aT \ India, the Baptists Tend in Christian Endeavor, -while in Australia,  Spain. France and other countries the  Methodists lead; in Norway, Denmark,  Germany and Russia the Lutherans  lead; in Italy and Waldensians, etc.  No agency has done more to bring  the Christian people of all denominations closer together than has this  great society. The present tendency  toward a unity of Christian people and  churches is due, in a large part, to  Christian Endeavor, with its more  than 12,000 union meetings tvery year,  ranging from local and county Christian Endeavor union gatherings of one  hundred or less, to the State, International, and World's Conventions, with  th msands and tens of thousands of  delegates present. Some of the county  conventions In this country are large;  Los Angeles County, Cal., seldom has  fewer than J,000 at its county convention; Middlesex County, Mass., had 2,-  40. at its convention this year. The  27th International and Fifth World a  Convention Is to he held in Chicago,  July 7-12, 1915.

Professor Blaekie was   lecturing to  a new class with whose -ic.iua.in-ance  he    was very imperfectly acquainted.  j In answer to some direction given by  1 the lecturer,- a student  rose to read  a paragraph, his book in his left hand.  "Sir," thundered Blaekie. "hold  your book in your right hand." And  as the student would have spoken.  "No wf-cls, sir! Your right hand, I  say!"  -. The student held up his right arm,  ending piteously at the -.tump of its  wrist.  "Sir, I hae nae richt hand," he said,  and his voice was unsteady.  .Before Blaekie could open his lips  t.ie*re arose from the class such a  terrific storm" of hisses as one per  haps must go to Edinburgh to, hear,  and by it his voice was overborne as  by a wild sea.  Then the professor left his place  and went down to the student he had-  so unwittingly hurt. He put his arm  about the lad's shoulders and drew  him close, and the lad leaned up  against his -breast and .ooked v > at  him as though Divinity -itself had  stooped in compassion.  "My boy," said Blaekie���������he spokj  very softly, yet not so softly but that  every word was audi', le in the hush  that had fallen*on the class-room���������-  "my boy, you'll forgive rme that. I was  over-rough? I did not know���������I did  not know."  He turned to his students, and, with  a look and tone that came straight  from his heart, he said:  "And let me say to you all, I am  rejoiced to be shown that I am teaching a class of gentlemen."  Scottish lads can cheer as well as  hiss, and that Blaekie learned abundantly, then and many a time thereafter.  Dr, Chase is    - ,.'

THE CRESTON REVIEW  tHEGRESTONRE  CY F. Hayeb, Owner and Editor.  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, SEPT. 25  A Bit of Sunshine  One oi? the most welcome pieces  ��������� >f news that has come to the Kootenay for some time was the announcement on Saturday that the  smelter at Ti'ail is prepared to  accept custom silver-lead ore for  treatment.  We are assured that the arrangement which it offers should enable  the various large silver-lead producing properties to re-open on  much the same scale as before the  war. -.������������������:..-,.-.,  According to the Nelson News  this should mean that West Kootenay at least should feel comparatively little erf-feet from war conditions. The mines at Rossiand, the  value of the product of which is 90  per cent, gold, have continued operations right along and when the  silver-lead mines are again shipping  with Trail smelter running as usual  conditions in West Kootenay should  shortly again become normal.  Canadian Contingents  There have been so many apparently "official" announcements as  to Canada's contribution to the  empire's defence that the public  mind is becoming a bit mixed on  the subject.  First of all we were assured  that when the first contingent has  been sent to the front from the new  Dominion training camp, Valcar-  tier, another would be mobilized  and then another.  I.ast week came  the news that  the proposal to send a second army  division to the front was to be reconsidered and it was stated  then  that the  authorities   proposed   to  make the first contingent 25,000  men, and as soon as   they are gone  organize  the surplus left in camp  into  batallions up  to 10,000 as a  reserve to be sent forward as needed  to iill gaps made by casualties and  sickness; at the ond of four months  another reserve and  supply force  of 5,000 was also to go forward.  On account of Valcartier not being  suitable as a winter camp it was to  bo closed and  further  contingents  wero to  be mobilized  at  various  points.  This week wo learn that the  authorities have decided that every  man will bo taken from cpmp. Tho  firing lino will consist of 22,500 mon  but at the samo timo it is deemed  advisable to send tho. rest ofthe  Canadians who will act as a reserve  instead of keeping them in Canada  and not be able to uro thom at a  time whon they aro greatly needed.  Ah to whether a second contingent  will be mobilized the minister made  no announcement.  With the time for their departure ho c-.low at hand it mny lie accepted that the lust-announced plan  will not lie subject to any further  ehungoH without notice.  ���������o-lher wars we find that even if the  | struggle were   continued for  four  years the cost would not be greater  which the young Ameri-  public  bore  so lightly after  the   tenable    internecine    conflict  which raged there fifty years ago..  The Napoleonic wars cost Britain  more than'three-billion dollars, but  this was more than  offset by the  increased conimereial and-'industrial expansion which fell to her during that  prolonged struggle.    The  Boer  war  cost her  morfc  than a  billion dollars.  vOt.-.course, the cost -to Great  Britain i-r does not cover theoutlay  of the Oriipire. Were we to add to  the amount %timated tlie cost to  the various dominionsand colonies  the aggregate would T.e muoh  higher, but the highest'authorities  assure us the British empu*e could  bear the burden three, years ttiuc-h  more lightly than Germany can  carry it for three months. .  The cost of the conflict to Germany is placed at three .thrums greater  than Britain's expense. She is  mainfcaii-g a larger army than any  of the other powers, with the exception of Russia, and is exhausting  her resources at. a terrific rate.  What supplies she is able to obtain  froni outside her boundaries are  purchased at exhorbibant prices.  In six months she will be a hopeless bankrupt.  Austria is in even worse straits  and is making frantic efforts to  negotiate a loan of two hundred  millions.  The cost of the war to France  cannot be nearly as great as to  ���������Germany in spite of the large army  she is maintaining in the field.  Her soldiers are fighting on their  own soil, within first hand reach of  their bases. She has. xio immense  transport eating into her bank roll.  Her supplies from overseas reach  her as easily as they; did-hefore war  was declared, thanks to the British  navy.  The cost to Russia will be very  heavy because of the enormous  armies she is keeping in the field  and their distance, from home  bases. On the other hand her  operating costs are lignter than  those of any other power while her  resources in food supplies are inexhaustible and mako her independent  of all outside sources.  All of which strengthens our  contention of last week that the  war is too fierce to last.  In view of this* exhibition of  their loyalty,-and also remembering  the Komagata Maru in Vancouver  harbor \es3 than a month before  war broke out, we must conclude  that like other nations the Hindu  seems to be a mixture of both good  and badj ?and the sample arriving  at Vancouver is apparently largely  of the latter.  Suggestions of Peace  ti  he  Germans actually on  the defensive many miles from the  gates of Paris; with the Austrian  army almost annihilated by repeated Servian ai>d?Russiaiv successes;  with Germany refusing to lend  Austria any more moiiey. and taking the British viewpoint that the  bankers already see financial rniin  for Germany, there may be considerable substance to the reports  corning from Washington that the  Kaiser is not averse to President  Wilson sounding the Allies looking  to the inauguration of peace proposals.  It is not thought that there  would be any immediate cessation  of hostilities but only that it may  be open to the President to ask the  Allies on what terms they would  consent to negotiate.  In. British circles the view is  held that German bankers gave  their approval to Germany's entry  into the war only in the belief that  the conflict would last a month, in  which time Paris would be captured and France brought to sue for  terms.  In addition to Austria's inability  to raise money it should 7 also be  remembered that Germany's own  latest war loan is not being taken  up which might reasonably be construed to me^n that the money interests are beginning to exert pressure? for an ending of the war.  ?In regard to terms of peace, it is  hardly likely that at the present  time Germany would accept any  terms that the Allies would, be witting -to*.offer..-  The Kaiser might, however, be  in a more tractable frame of mind  by the time the preliminary negotiations were disposed of, especially  if things continue to go as they  have been going during the past  two weeks.  Loyal to the Crown  CURRENT COMMENT  While the Canadian people must  be highly pleased with the generally satisfactory tone of the war  news it is particularly gratifying to  have apparently definite assurance  that Indian troops ai*efighting side  by side with men from tho United  Kingdom to drivo tho invaders  from France. A finor exhibition  of loyalty to tho King-Emperor has  novor been given and would, indeed bo impossible.  it is well known that in India  for somo years thero has boen an  active native opposition to British  rulo, and undoubtedly tho empire's  enomios figured that this period of  world-trouble for Great Britain  would see a monster native uprising  in India.

Such is the  theory put forward in the Journal of  \ Natural Science by    Professor Philip\  | Fauth,   a  well    known    astronomer,  whose reputation has rested principally upon his researches into conditions  on the moon.  The  novel  feature  o_ Dr.  Fauth's  i theory is that it is based upon ths supposition that -a great part of the  known solar system, including "especially the planets Jupiter, Uranus and Saturn, are not composed of mineral matter at all, but are tremendous masses  of ice, or balls ot ice surrounding a  mineral kernel. Furthermore, lie declares, a part of what is now known  as the Milky way is not mineral or  gr.seous, but "a ring of ice dust,"  masses of particles of ice suspended  iu space, the outer planets reeelviug  a constant addition to their ice mass  from this source.  Professor Fauth declares that the  world already at some remote period  has had a similar experience, resulting  in the death of nearly all animate nature, and that all species of life as we  know it have arisen since'then. Eventually the planets swinging: through  their narrowing orbits will fall into the  sun, causing a new explosion and perhaps the birth of a new solar system,  hut for thousands of years before that  time all life, either ou earth or elsewhere, will have disappeared.���������New  York Sun.

It Is  not, however, coniined to thom alone,  for it is this same lack of blood that  prevents full recovery aftor in grippe,  fevers, malaria and operations.

What   is   the   Oldest river    in  the  tvorld?   The St. Lawrence.   It is-also  one of  the few  rivers  that did not  have to niake its own bed and lias remained unchanged since the very beginning of the American continent.  Try to think of a time when the  earth, was covered by a mass of water,  hot, steaming and often tremendously  disturbed by the throes of a globe beneath it tjia_?was shrinking because it  was becotning. cooler. ?As the globe  shrank every particle of the outside  was naturally pulled in toward the  centre, and the hardening crust, which  could not be packed any more solidly  than it was, had to wrinkle, sinking  down here'and bulging up somewhere  else..  After a time certain of these rising  wrinkles, Or folds, the thicker or firmer p: ts of the earth's crust, stood the  strain and became permanent ridges.  The oldest of them that geologists  know, and apparently the first that  bulged up above the universal ocean  and remained high and dry was the  hroad mass on which Canada now  rests? It is a part of the original crust  of the earth, and we can see it today  wherever it is not covered by newer  rocks or soil just as ft crystallized and  cooled out of the primeval molten material.  This mass formed a broad V from.  Labrador down to Lake Huron and  thence northwestward to Alaska. On  account of its shape geologists call .it  the Canadian shield. It is the oldest  land known and apparently the strong  est, for there, are no signs of any extensive changes in it (except"the wear  ing away df the "surface) since it first  rolled the ocean off its shgjilders?  -Off the eastern coastTot this primitive continent lay a chain of lofty islands about on the line of the Blue  Ridge, the White _ Mountains, the  ..Maine coast and Nova Scotia. Between  these islands and tlie mainland was a  troughlike space that ran from Eastern Quebec southwestward to Ohio. It  was two or three hundred ruiles wide  and filled with n. shallow sea, and just  outside the island chain was the great  hollow that held the Atlantic ocean.  Time went on. For ages the straining and    cracking    of the  shrinking  globe, earthquakes,    sun    and    frost,  pounding surf,?running water, blowing  gales, ice���������all labored to tear down the ]  mountains and carry the wreckage of  rocks and dust? away into, the valleys  and r_eas?   In; this way vast masses Of  rock in layers, of shales, sandstones,  vand, what not,?were -laid down ?i;x .that  ' narrow, troughlike sea    between the  chain of islands and tlie continent. -  All these, "sedicieaitary" rocks were  soft and weak as compiared with the  solid old granites deeply rooted    on  either side of tlicm, and the trough itself,  a  sagging  fold,  was a,  line  of  . weakness in the crust.   As the load of  deposits became heavier and heavier  the floor of this trough slowly yielded,  and as it sank toward the heated region below the underside melted and  grew thinner and thinner,  That could >not go. on forever, and  . soon tlie continual   shrinking   of the  ' globe and  the enormous pressure of  the weight of the ocean became irresistible.    The    Canadian, shield    was  immovable, so tho rock In the trough  began to bulge or crumple all along its  length. Gradually,, not all at once, but  by slow and varying movements, tho.,������  folds were squeezed up, which in their  broken and worn down^i'orm wo know  as the Appalachian mountains.  Toward the south thero .was room  for this notion to be rather gentle and  regular, hut.in the far, northeast the  trough was narrow, and tho soft rocks  wero Sot on eflee, overturned and  splintered against tho solid continent.  Very early In the struggle a great  ���������fracture of the earth's crust occurred  boro alonr a curving northeast and  Houthw'.Ht Hno.

The polling begins at?g in the morn,  ing and lasts until 6 in the evening.  Instead of regularly appointed clerks  affil election officials, three volunteers  take charge of the "urn" in which the  ballots are deposited and conduct the  proceedings. One of the penalties of  being first to appear is the likelihood  of being impressed into service as one  of the assessors, of whom two, both  independent voters, must serve with  the "president of the ballot."

Ti  NEW     FORCE     IN     MODERN WAR  FARE  FOR COMMUNICATION  General   Principles of  Rotation  Prof. .S. A. Bedford? deputy minister  of agriculture in Manitoba, cives the  following general principles of croi" ro-  tation:  1. Include at least one leguminous  crop in the rotation to gath or nitrogen from the air.  2. Have at least cue. cultivated or  hoed crop in the rotation that the  land may be cleaned of weeds.  3. Rotate shallow-rooting crops with  deep-rooting ones, so as to enlarge the  feeding ground of the plants.  4. When possible to do so. avoid rotating small cereals with other small-  cereals, especially avoid repeating the  wheat crop.  5. If live stock is kept plan the rotation s 3 as Lo have approximately the  same amount of forage each year.  6. As soon as conditions permit keep  more or less stock on the farm, in no  other way can the fertility of the land  be kept up. '���������'���������  7. At the earliest possible moment  have the bedding so free of weeds that  the manure can be applied direct from  the stable and thus save much waste  of fertilizer.  8. Arrange the rotation so that most  of the hired help will be profitably  employed all the year round, the rata  of wages will be less and employees  will be more contended.

Wireless   telegraphy  is     the    new  force in modern  warfare 7which has  changed all the old problems Of cora-  muhication.   Prof, Frank Waldo, writing  in   the  Boston  Transcript,  gives  an interesting description of Avar time  uses of the wireless.  "The usefulness of wireless in war  time,'' says Professor Waldo, "has just  been proved in the recall of certain  ships after they had left port, war  having been declared in the meantime.  One ship was. recalled to New York  after proceeding over 500 miles on her ���������'.  way across the Atlantic; and?the wireless has been active in reaching ships  from the European stations either for  purposes of recall or notification that  the war is on.  "The? stopping *of all telegraphic and '  telephonic cororpminication between the  belligerents at the first breathings of  war, and.the partial stopping by control and censorship of such communications from nations at war to non-belligerents, has rendered invaluable  messages by wireless across and  around the regions controlled by the  belligerents and especially at sea and  across the seas. But the bottling up  of any place so that it cannot hold  communication with the outside is a  thing of the past. The fact that a  wireless apparatus cannot be easily  hidden-prevents the surreptitious use  which might he-made of it in regions  under control of the belligerents, although for short-distance communication, such as along frontiers or between close lying countries as in Western Europe, a small wireless receiving  apparatus might be secretively used,  especially If it were temporarily  strung under cover of the darkness  and taken down before daylight. In  .such work there will be a new field for*  signal corps; work and ��������� scoutings.  "As regards the more *��������� powerful  land stations,' those which will keep  up communication 500 miles and - up-  wards these can he easily kept under  and letters.���������Pall Mall Gazette...... _.
