 CBEKEQN, &������,,  r, APRIL $7, 1917  No. 15  $27,800 for Ka&lo;  Roadwork  If a fair test of the ability of an  M.P,P.. lies zip ,t|ie direction of his  ability, to gfjt,ap^rpj������*iati;ona from .the  provincial reve^ue$ for use inpublic  works, then John Keen, the Kaslo  representative, B**iJi'***fc.,hjB credited with  an assay of almost 100 per cent.--  compared with the success attained in  this' ������������������egai-d fey sseiriiKri^ of. other  constituencies.  The i.Rfrant r for Kaslo for 1917 is  $27,800 as corn-pared yeith $36,000 last  year. In Siocan the out is from  -$38,000 in 1916 to $23,400 this trip. In  Trail J. H. Schofleld's best effort is  $24,000 as compared with $72,000 that  came his way the year previous. And  ������q it is in almost every riding in the  province-���������eyes Cranbrook, the minister of works' own constituency, has  been,cujt tp ������28,700 in contsast with  $41,000 ini 1016.  These figures would indicate that  only, tiie wainte|*ta������ce of -the existing  roads and bridges is contemplated,  although the rather better showing  for tbe Kaslo ridingvmight give some  hope that the rebuilding of the Canyon  bridge is included in the local estimates, though to do the job properly  and provide for necessitous works in  other parts the capital available wil!  haye to be *extremely carefully  disbursed.  As yet there is no announcement as  to who will get the appointment of  road foreman or assistant engineer.  Down at Kaslo the name of one J.H.  Riddell   is    prominently   mentioned,  while there, is, ah?o a suspicion in that  ���������section ,th^t^^Ej^>.Moo*fe������ it former  bolder of the p^sifidrt  well! quafified foxidfche job, will have  the' prefei-ewra. ^3(kt "this end of the  riding there^ see-me^ to: be no definite  choicer���������at; '?������M������t. jnot for publication.  G.   M.   Benney ' has   numerous  supporters    amongst    the   Conservative  and   independent  elements,   and his  appointment Avill not. surprise even  some usually   well-informed Liberals.  Under  tb,e ..new   -system   B.C.   is  divided   into eight districts  for the  carrying on of public works, for each  of which a public works engineers has  been appointed.   Creston, and all the  other points in  Went Kootenay, will  be looked after by P. L. McPherson,  formerly    municipal    engineer    for  Burnaby, who   will   have   his  headquarters at Nelson.   J. G. Cununings,  former city engineer at Cranbrook,  will  look    after  the   work   in   Bast  Kootenay, and  *wi!l dako his headquarters    at   Cranbrook.   For    the  Fernie riding riding Mr. Cummings Is  advertising for applications for   rhe  position ot genera'*! road foreman  but  so far has not adopted this procedure  ���������   in the other two ridings in  his jurisdiction���������Columbia   and    Cranbrook.  The Boundary country, Slmllkameen  and Okanagan are all included in the  torritory to be taken care of by Athol  Stewart, who will bave his permanent  address at Greenwood.  s,: .;    ������������������;        .     .^-A ���������-���������' -.A-A    T.A   iV',.,.. :%" "'A V  ing Bed Cross work in any shape.

"What are you doing? Do you  know what you're doing? Do you  want to have it known that you're the  son-in-law of a man who's going to  bc hanged?"  But Sir Penywern still shouted, until the Pents came running up thc  stairs, panting and alarmed.

The advertisement reads as  follows:  "Resolved this rirst day of January  A.  D.  1917:  "That 1 need the assistance, of a  friendly bank in my efforts to attain,  financial success; and  "That I will prove my thrift by  opening a savings account tomorrow  in (home town) bank, in which I promise myself to deposit a' definite  amount not less than once a month.  "Have you made such a resolution?  If not, do it today, and then keep it."  We hear a good deal of impracticable discussion these days as to the  best way to save; Thrift, of course,  is desirable at all times, but; especially so at thc present. The man who  has made a practice of saving part of  his income is the one for whom approaching old age has no terr.ors.  But'the faddist is abroad. The advocate of the penny batik in schools is  really a very simple matter if an organized system is adopted/ Children  should receive their first lessons in  thrift at home. Give a child a toy  bank; let him place in it the pennies  which he would oth^���������.vise expend in  the purchase of comestibles; let him  place there anything he is able to  cam, and at regular intervals, when  he h**s an amount worth while, let  him deposit it to his own credit in  the regular savings banks. There are5  lessons in morality, in ethics, and in  other branches which it is the duty  of the parents, and not of the teacher, to impart.  Penny savings banks in schools  are so much lumber added to a curriculum   that  is  already  too    heavy.  They are not fair to the teachers or  thc banks, and create strife and jealousy among the children themselves  by making public property of.family  matters which should be regarded as  sacred.  Two children carry money to  school, the one five cents, the other  a dollar, and a social distinction is  af'once established. One child knows  the financial standing of another. Thc  legitimate system of banking ensures the secrecy which is so essential.  One half of the world does not know  the bank account of thc . other.���������  From the Peterborough Review.  From Our Own Correspondent  Toronto-  The phenomenal gains that the  Canadian Northern Railway reports  for its year as a transcontinental line  makes the statement one of^the most  important that has ever been issued  by any railway ia Canada. It is even  doubtful whether the tremendous increases in business handled have ever  been duplicated by any system in the  wordd. There are many features to  thc report that makc it of special im-  rort to every Canadian,-owing td the  interest the country has in the building up of this important transcontinental line and the attractive territory that has been developed through  the completion of the system. The  feature of the report that is likely to  be especially gratifying is that which  shows the prominent part the Canadian Northern, with its transcontinental system, has been able to play  in handling such a large proportion  of the grain requirements of the  Mother Country.  Right along it has been the contention of* Sir William Mackenzie  and his associates that it was only  a matter of a very short period be-  fore Canada and thc Empire would  enjoy the benefits of the big system  that had been built up across the Dominion, and the showing mad.e in the  report indicates that these hopes  have been realized much earlier than  it would have been thought possible  when che transcontinental system was  set in operation a little over a year  ago.  Important Gains of Ycar-  A few of the outstanding features  $oi the report are as follows: An increase in freight traffic during ,he  year of $8,352,412, equivalent to as  much as 45.87 per cent.; increase in  yasesnger traffic,- $717,246, of a gain  of 13.25 per cc: '-.; an increase in total  operating re*. ae of $9,564,168, or  3o.91 per cent;, over the previous year.  That the company's lines handled ovcr 131,000,000 bushels of grain is  proof positive that thc railway has  been located in thc best grain growing areas of the West.  Thc exact grain traffic handled  amounted to 131,97S,809 bushels as  compared with 58,575,520 bushels in  1915, or an increase of 73,403,2S9,  equivalent to an increase of as much  as 125.31 per cent.  That the company has been able to  make such striking gains in the  amount of traffic handled over its  lines will undoubtedly bc more readily appreciated when it is remcmbeivd  that it was only operated as a transcontinental system during thc last  seven of tho. twelve months,of thc fiscal ycar, and when it is recalled that  '"*'���������'fs that hotter'dWcctcd'to you/ wif sitbc floor, witii'a last sudden writhing  a*j,-or" ! motion,  tried  to bite  his hand,  High Praise for Western Creamery  The firm in England which received  thc co-operative car of creamery butter  shipped  last  October    from,    thc  t?^^*- vv;ii r>���������  three  Prairie Provinces    states    that  ������OcUB  W1U DC  hin:  tha  on  the   charge,   of   murdering     Bcnjanii t  Uathbonc, bv shooting him  with  my  "No," he said.

AN INVITATION  TO SICKNESS  The Hun Must Go  Impure Blood Means a    Breakdown  in Your Health.  __ Impure  blood  is  an invitation    to  sickness.   The blood is at work    day  and night to maintain the   health, and  any lack of strength or purity in the  blood  is a   weakness  in   the  defense  against disease.    Anaemia is the doctor's name for lack of blood.    There  may be an actual loss in the quantity  of the blood, or one or more of its  constituents may be lacking. Its surest symptom is pallor.    Anaemia    is  particularly common in young girls^-  It is not, however, confined :o them  alone, for it is this same lack of blood  that prevents full  recovery aftcr    la  grippe, fevers, malaria and operations.  It is also present in old age and    in  persons who have been under unusual  mental or physical strain. If you are  suffering from this trouble take    Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Pco*ole.  They make pure    new    blood    with  every dose and this new blood m<:ans  health and strength. Thousands have  proved the truth of these statements,  among them Mrs. John Hyatt, Metis-  kow, Alta., who says:���������"About a ycar  ago I was in a badly run down condition, my blood was watery,    I    was  very nervous,  slept badly at    night;  suffered from frequent headaches and  found my housework an almost intolerable burden, my appetite was poor,  and I did not seem to assimilate th������*  food I took, altogether my condition  seemed serious.:      As    there was no  doctor in our neighborhood I decided  to give Dr.  Williams'  Pink .Pills    a  trial, and I have much cause to    be  thankful that I did so, as in    a few  weeks I could feel a great change for  the better. I continued the use of the  pills for some time longer and found  a complete cure.    I  feel better than  I  have  for years  and  can  therefore  cheerfully recommend   Dr. Williams'  'Pink Pills to all  who arc weak and  run down."  You can get these pills from any  dealer in medicine or by mail at 50  cents a hox or six boxes for $2.50  from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  fcrockvillo. Ont.

No Longer Under Illusion Regarding  The Enemy  The plain matter of fact is that the  German Empire has made itself impossible in Europe. Its root ideas, its  fundamental conception, its historic  estimate of men and things, its manners, its customs, its behavior, arc  all so widely,.different from .what we  associate with the best elements of  European culture that it must be  taught to amend its ways and accept  a defeat which means humiliation.

Minard's Liniment Cures Dandruff.  Investigate Grain  . Rust Problem  Government Will Plan to Prevent the  ' -Damage From This Cause   .  Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of  agriculture has announced tlic appointment of W. P. Fraser; M.A..,  I lant pathologist of MacDonaid College, to investigate the prdblem of  grain rust on the prairie provinces.  It is estimated that the damage  from rust last year totalled probably  enc hundred million dollars. The  chief damage was in Manitoba and  Southern Saskatchewan.  Mi'._ Burrell has been giving special  attention to the problem, and two  V'ell-equipped laboratories have been  built on the experimental farms at  Brandon  and   Indian  Head.  Afr. Burrell has now been fortunate to secure thc service of Mr. Fraser to take charge of this work and  carry on extensive investigations.  Mr. Fraser is a graduate of Dal-  housic and Cornell universities, and  is recognised as one of the greatest  authorities on the continent en fungus diseases. He will leave shortly  to take up his new work.

'  He says that a few drops of a drug  called freezone, applied directly upon  a tender, aching corn, instantly relieves soreness, and soon the entire  corn, root and all, lifts right out.  This drug dries at once and. simply  shrivels up the corn or callus without  even irritating the surrounding tissue.  A small bottle of freezone obtained  at any drug store will cost very little  but will positively remove every hard  or soft corn or callus from one's feet.  If your druggist hasn't stocked this  new drug yet, tell him to get a small  bottle or freezone for you from his  wholesale drug house.

Owing to the  activity of the submarines and the  failure of the harvests, Britain, too,  is thrown back upon her agriculture,  and while I believe the British fanner will do his utmost to meet the situation, I prophesy his failure.*'  Regarding the submarine campaign  thc despatch adds, Dr. Helfferich declared:  "Wc considered the matter carefully and have dared. We are certain of success, and will not allow  that success to be wrested from tis by  anything or anybody."  After appealing for fresh efforts  by the agriculturalists, he added:  "Until the next harvest comes there  is still a long and not an easy road  to travel. Even the best economic,  plan for the next year and the most  stubborn work and sacrifice on thc  part of the farmer for the coming  harvest do not relieve us of the iron  necessity of managing for a number  of months with what we have in  hand."

His reproduction of the  curate-chairman's opening address, as  well as the efforts of the amateur  pianiste and gentleman elocutionist,  along with the comments interjected at  times by some of the ���������unappreciative  in the audience, was fine and caused  no end of laughter.

B.C., FRIDAY. APR. 27  Now that the United States ia  into the European war to the limit  of her manhood and resources, if  need be, and remembering the  stories that have been afloat from  time to time of the number of  guards and other help required to  handle internment camps���������Morrissey in - particular���������considerable  curiousity has been aroused to to  the probable number of. alien  enemies there are in the United  States At the present time.  The total number of. German-  born residents in the United States  is 2,501,333: If Austria-Hungary  is included the total is increased  to 4,171,915. The natives of Germany and Austria-Hungary comprise 31 per cent of the total foreign  population of the country, but less  thaii 6 per cent of the total.  It will surprise ss&bj t������ learn  that New York has the largest  'German population of any state in  tbe Union. The total is 463,700.  The German population of New  York is "only   14  per cent of its  Vri.-cvirtmt    Vvr-aVv**!***���������+<a.v������    '     Tpf*������lJP    -*C   (02-*  j������-w������ ym-c J9������a*       |#m>|������'a������ijalM Vs^isaa J*mkk.%m������U        \r������      ���������kJj.������m.^  cinnati's citizens were born in  Germany. The other centres iu  the order of their population of the  German vote are as follows: Baltimore, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit,  Jersey City, Los Angelas, Milwaukee, Newark^ St, Louis and San  Francisco. In the matter of proportion of Germans to population  Wisconsin leadg, with Minnesota  second.  Ih addition to aii these there is  all the very large number of German sympathisers���������the fellows who  : were pro German not because they  ���������loved the Hun,  but because they  ,- liked Britain less, and were so outspoken with their opinions as to  make the handling of this phase  of the situation almost as delicate  as that of the German or the  German-American.  Undoubtedly the possibility of  serious internal troubles was a  great factor in delaying the entry  of the United States into the European struggle. Having gone in  after such mature deliberation, and  knowing that eternal vigilance is  the price of safety doubtless every  precaution has been taken that the  circumstances would seem to  require.  munitions and supplies to keep the  Russian army at the front ever on  the advance.  Those who _ have succeeded the  czar and his advisors in charge of  Russian affairs are undoubtedly in  favor of prosecuting the war to. a  victorious peace, but the peace-at-  any ���������'price element iir that country  along with the considerable following of the czar's, which, naturally,  is.":'Gppo������sd .to sss*������fehissg the. ssw.  governing body may introduce,  and divers- other elements that so  far have shown but little enthusiasm  for the hew rulers of the country,  make the conduct of affairs very  difficult for the new government;  in fact doubly eo when iiis remembered that this is the first bit of  government direct that the cabinet  ministers have ever tackled.  In excuse of the government's  seeming inaction on war matters it  oftis well be pleaded that the ministers just at present bave their  hands full in their effort to reconstruct the Uussian constitution on  the broadest possible lines of  liberty and justice-���������a very serious  problem in itself when one remembers to what extremes some of the  more radical of the populace would  always plunge when the initial  effort at self government confronts  them, and particularly such elements as hitherto-autocratic  Russia has nurtured.  Every friend of Russia in the  Allied countries and aii who have  admired the magnificent and self-  sacrificing efforts she has made in  the war will confidently hope that  her government's .counsels afe this  crisis will be marked by the highest wisdom. A rejuvenated Bussia,  viotorious over the eonisaon enemy  of civilization, would be one of the  most powersul factors in the preservation of the world's peace in  the future.

True thore is no information of  fM.\y sort to indicate that the  Germans are hurling tho Russians  buck, but the faot that there is  absolutely no news, excepting a  couple of minor clashes, of activity  hy either parties in that seotion for  almost a month now, io giving close  students of tho war no little oon-  cern at this timo.  The abdication of Oscar Nicholas  and tho setting up of a republican  form of government the very, early  part of tho month was takon as  tho last straw that should break  the buck of Kainorinm with tho  people at homo in Germany, ir due  timo produomg oomothing akin to  a revolution amongst the Genwm  ti-oopit in the field, as woll ao speeding up the Russian oiTonsive and  tne   production   01    tne   nt****.������*im*ty  Continuing our study of the  overseas fighting a little further it  would look as if the situation between Bussia and Germany is not  the only one to arouse some little  alarm.  By shortening her western line,  by conscripting every available  man within her borders, by compelling Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria  and Turkey to do the same, Germany, at a time when, in the prediction of military experts her manpower should show signs of serious  exhaustion, has been able to place  an additional million men in the  field.  This seems to border on the  impossible but, true or otherwise;  Sir William Robertson, ohief of the  Imperial General Staff, announces  that Britain must produce another  half million men���������aud in three  months���������fco cope with the situation  the addition of so many Hun troops  to those already in the Held may  create.  Where are the men to oomo  from. Great Britain herself is  almost exhausted of men. Her  "exempt list" is being combed out  still again iu the hope that somewhere near the number required  ttisy bo forthcoming.  Britain has given tivo million  men out of forty-five million population; the Overseas Dominions have  given, roughly, loss than ono million  out of fifteen. On the basis of  what the Motherland has done tho  Overseas Dominions ought to produce ut tho least an additional half  million men, of which Canada  should supply a quarter of a  million.  Even if the present rate of recruiting could he maintained in  Canada it would take this country  another two years t-o raiuo and  equip ������50j000 troop*, tossy nothing  of the injurioiiH oUcots  tho present  wymteni of taking on voliuitutmi haa  *���������������������������.       ... ...  ������>>oo..>o������������������>y   iituuuui jujj*. \  And if sentiment elsewhere in  the Dominion is of the same as  public opinion in these parts one is  at a loss to understand why some  attempt at compulsory servioe was  not made���������yes, from the outbreak  of hostilities.  True there are some hereabouts  that hold that the public should  vote on the question, and the  majority being adverse tho scheme  dropped. Others would have the  vote taken also and the decision  favorable or otherwise would  see to it that those voting in favor  of the move were drafted first.  Following very close on April  1st, the last day on which the  National Servioe cards were returnable, came a despatch from Guelph,  Ontario, to the effect that 350  young men of that oity who signed  these cards some mon the previous,  had received letters from the  militia authorities notifying them  that their services were required  for overseas service, and requesting them to report at onco to the  ohief recruiting officer for that  district.  To date no such news has emanated from any other point in the  Dominion and hope has again boon  abandoned that anything worth  while in tne recruiting lino iv to be  expected from these cards���������jim  dandy and all as they would havo  been Into their return hdon compulsory instead of merely "obligatory," and a fully-kept register  made of the names and whereabouts of gentlemen receiving  thorn.

_ Disease used to be more destructive of armies than one army was of
another. But medical science, with
good sanitary arrangements, has
changed all that. Sir Alfred Keogh
last summer reported twenty-two
cases of typhoid among the. British
soldiers in France, and remarked that
in former days with the same number
of men in thc field, there would have
been at least 80,000 eases. The United States had 170,000 men on the
Mexican border from May 1 to October 16, and there were but. twenty-
I four typhoid cases and no deaths. In
[the war with Spain, in an American
arVuv of less than 150,000 men, there
were* 20,000 cases and 2,19.? deaths.

A Lesson in the    East    That

General Townsend started for Bagdad with 20,000 men in 1915, and surrendered fit Kut-cl-Amara with 9,000
on April 28, 1916, thq rest of his command having escaped. General Maude
started for Bagdad with 120,000 men
on December 13, 1916, and today thc
lurks are fleeing before him, with thc
whole Turkish  position  from  Sanna-
i-Yat to Kut-cl-Amara iu his hands.
It is  a    significarjt    and    instructive
proof  tliat  thc  British  have at    last-'
learned", not how to fight, but how to
make  war.    The  insignificant    force
with which Townsend was sent on liU
fatal expedition, with no way prepared of supporting him. was an evidence
that in 1915 Britain was _still governed by the same belief that    war    is
easy that Colonel Churchill expressed'
when Ire jauntily predicted that    the;
rats at Kiel would be dug out if they.
would not come out.    The expedition J
which has now met with such success

The vaguely outlined suggestion that has come, from  England of using some 200 million  acres of Canadian agricultural lands  for thc purpose of paying off the Empire's war debt, serves only as a ie-  minder to the people of Canada that  they must meet very soon, tlic serious problem of colonizing and developing the vast unoccupied areas  of their Dominion. Middle Western  Canada probably offers, from a  purely physical viewpoint, a field for  settlement having lines of less resistance than any other part of the  country. In the southern half of thai:  expansive rectangular area of prairie  reaching from the eastern limits of  Man"  there  thc  est  to be cultivated. The hinterland, or  the northerly half of the Middle West  with its network of lakes, rivers, forests, and mineral-bearing rock, varied  with great stretches of fertile land  and valley, presents a different picture. One part of Alberta's Peace  River Valley already has been opened and partly settled. With that exception, agricultural development and  thc lines of railways with their citie.s  and towns are a part only of. thc prairie plains of the southern half of the  Middle Western Provinces. It is  within the bounds of this latter area  that Canada has spent much money  and pledged her credit in establishing  ?.;n extensive plant represented by  railway lines and municipalities. That  equipment has never been operated  to full capacity. There is ovcr one.  mile of railway to every sixty-nine  producers in Western Canada today,  lhc West's greatest need, therefore,  is people, and people who.will go on  the land aud produce something  through which the country as a whole  may be supported.  That  means,  then,  the    settlement  first of thc southern or equipped half]  of the Middle West.    The scheme for  acquiring and developing 200 million  acres accordingly must begin with    a  consideration of that section of    thc  country alrcadv prepared  for  settlement.     First,  it will  bc found    that  the   old   magnet  of  free  homesteads  with, thc attached privilege of     preemption has lost its drawing-power.  Thc difficulty of acquiring any kind  of desirable land will soon bc realized.      In other words, tho vast proportion of cultivable land in that part  of tho West where settlement is most  needed.und most likely,.to occur has  been alienated  from thc    Dominion.  At thc end of the past year the area  granted in homesteads and  pre-emptions by the Dominion    government  nmoiintcd to 62,7737,510 acres.    Add  to lhat figure the amount of land held  by the railways, Hudson's Bay Company, and that represented in school  land sales and special grants, and another fortv-four million acres must be  excluded from the class of free lands.  Altogether, there have been some 106  riiliton  acres \A  western hinds  taken  fiom the country. \Of this area   not  more than ibirly-Uvo    million    acres  has been  fnrmqcl.    The largest urea  actually brought under   crop in    the  .    three   l.raiiie   rrovinc.es  has  not .exceeded  tvventv mil)ion  acres.       Ihis  simply moans that before any plan ot  jifiilcincnl can he evolved for Western   Canada   lhc  Federal    authorities  must first face private or corporate  interests, which now hold in idleness  millions of acres^ of the best farming  land in thc Dominion, Can some satisfactory co-operative plan be shaped  between the owners, of ..western farm  lands and the government, or shall  the Department of Interior consider  the question of expropriation? This  problem must be faced squarely; and  it would seem to be one demanding  cither co-operation or expropriation.  .���������. iPr*\i"/>*tt*f *-**.     f"Xli-"*tT\r������  Cotton Shortage in Germany  Those .200    pajamas    Would    Have  Been Very Useful  The fact that a member of the  German embassy staff was carrying  home two hundred suits  of pajamas  Studied Savagery  Barriers Set Up by Civilization Removed by Germany  - Germany is removing one after another of the barriers set up by civilization  for humanizing war, by her  4**���������***������ i"TY* ���������������**.**��������������� f* ���������   f\ ������     *ri*'* ���������������     *-, *.J *- ,->.���������-* j-\���������-.~     ^������*j>'        t~2.r*m*^  vm *.������.* ������, J*A^y i.* V       ���������-������*        **s <**-.**        l/*. *-0\^AjV*WX ���������������-������       <n \^i w* ���������  many, by her treatment of the civilian populations of Belgium and  France, and by the latest development���������the attempt to sink harmless  merchantmen, with their sailors, plying a: peaceful trade.

You Make What You Bank  The Net Profit of the Town Dweller  and. the Farmer is  Compared  One day in thc summer of 1915,  when buying binder twine iu an Iowa  hardware store, a farmer bewailed  the amount of twine his big crop  forced him to buy. Today a million  farmers are. grumbling about thc  high cost of agricultural implements,  yet, measured in bushels of wheat or  corn, agricultural implements arc  cheaper than ever before. When a  busines!*\or professional man says he  makes $2,000 hc means that he earned that much and had to spend most  of it for living expenses for himself  and family. When a farmer admits  that he made the same amount or  any other amount last year hc means  that; hc put that much money in the  bank aftcr  paying    living    expenses,  Getting Even  A young man and a young woman  leaned on the front gate. They were  lovers. It was moonlight. He was  loath to leave, as the ���������parting was the  last. * He was about to go away.  "I'll never forget you," he said,  "and if death should claim me, mv  last'thought would be of you."  "I'll- be true to you," shc sobbed.  "I'll never love anybody'else as long  as I live."  They parted. Six years later he  returned. His sweetheart of former  years was married. They met at a  party. Shc had changed greatly. Between dances recognition look place,  "Let mc see," site mused, "was it  you or your brother who was my old  sweetheart?"  "Neither," he replied. "Probably  my father."

The Kaiser decided the  conference with the declaration:  "Four hundred thousand men are of  less importance to us than the maintenance of popular support which  would be weakened by any drawing in  of our lines." The Prussians have  clamored for the last weapon of defence���������ruthless submarine warfare to  strike terror to old England. The  Zeppelins failed. The promised indemnity from Paris failed. The attempt ou the Channel ports failed. -  The attempt to weaken the union of  the Allies failed. The Rumanian  wheat supplies were burned, and the  Rumanian oil wells were dynamited  ahead of the German invaders. The  proposals for a peace dictated by "  Germany failed. And now the German submarines are to attack the  world's commerce, not as an effective weapon of offence or defence,  but to satisfy German sentiment ana  keep  the Hohenzollerns in power.  Argument Against Titles  The argument against titles in Cah������  ada is that this country is democratic in its ideals and aims. This democracy is not served by setting up  a class of titled persons who will esc-  pect to take precedence over thei*  fellow citizens.  Canada rewards those who serve  her with distinction by contributing  to their successes, in whatever branch  of endeavor. Reward is earned by  the individual in the sense of duty  performed and_ objective attained.  Democracy is interdependent and individual success is won by many contributory agencies.   ..  Another fact that might as well be  borne in mind is this: These titles are  distributed in Canada among political friends. This may not always be  thc case, but it is the rule. Naturally  the suspicion is aroused as a consequence that the- conferring of a  knighthood is not wholly remote  from party service.���������London Free  Press.  ���������^Hii  iMMiwii������>i������ni������imwM������'l������Hnmiiinwii������rjw  aUffiiMMiilllM rttvpr  ��������� i WJ.-.V  ���������tflji ���������  i!.-������ ������������������  m$.'
