 f    /  Forestry Draft is  About 125 Strong  Most every train for the past week  has been bringing along one or more  recruits for the Creston Forestry  Draft, and by the time this issue  reaches our ..readers the total strength  will be very close to the 125 mark.  Of course recruiting will not stop at  125. The army authorities in Britain  are asking for 5000 of these men, and  so long as recruits offer they will be  given a place. Also to provide against  possible loss when the final medical  exam, comes along it is customary to  reeniit all corpss!ight!y,over strength.  Lieut. Venus  was out on a short recruit hunt in the Nelson rnd Pruitvale 1  sections the latter.part' of the week. I  and  as a result of his efforts   eight;  new faces are now  seen  in the ranks. !  Lieut. McLean  was out ori a similar !  mission at Fernie,  and he was also  fortunate In securing   a   half   dozen  men, "The best possible evidence that  Lieut. McLean is an expert at gathering in recruits-is furnished in the fact  that one of the gentlemen seeured is  his  brother-in-law, Pte.  J-Jenkinson  of Fernie.  A very welcome addition to the  draft this week is Ptes. H. Arbuckle,  W. L. Hunter, C. M. G. Grant, C. H.  Vallance, G. F. Dickinson and C. K.  Harrison. These are all employees of  the East Kootenay Lumber Co. at  Jaffray���������men who have been with the  firm as many as eight years, in. the  ease of Pte. Arbuckle. Ori the ocr  casion of their departure the firm and  fellow employees gaye them a sendoff  and the comDany presented each with  a wrist watcla, a" ease of pipes and tt  supply of tobacco.  Another notable recruits to come in  this week is Pte. P. B. Hope. "Paddy,"  as the oldtimers here all know him";  went oveaseas with the First Canadian  Contingent, and had two winters in  a the trenches in France before being  invalided home less  since which   time hi  inclined to give most of- the credit to  his early Nova Scotia Scotch training.  The Review's appeal for apples for  the troops has been nobly responded  to. Look at this list Of donations of  this fruit: Stark & Simmons 1 barrel,  E. Cartwright 4 boxes, Teddy Has-,  kins 2 boxes, Chas. Moore 2 boxes, and  John Arrowsmith 1 box. . Other  donations are cake from the Red CrOss,  jam from Mrs Hayes, and pickles  from Mesdames Gobbett and Andrews.  Anything in the pickle, jam or pastry  line will be specially welcome for the  next few davs*.  SrSmwSitsVKi  nuts   a. year ago,  en one nf  inan  Mrs, Leach, who has been stopping  with Mrs. H.

Weber, who has been occupying the Botterill place for the past  year, is moving to Canyon City this  week, where he nas a good job in the  mill.  ..*  Roy Staples has confidence the  potato market will be jake for another  year. He has justv leased 10 acres of  the Lamont plact, all of which he will  seed to spuds.  R. D. Kennedy, who struck Creston  from Swift Current, Sask,-about two  weeks ago has, we hear, taken the  Chas. Jackson ranch for 1917. He is  bringing in some stock, including a  nediirreed Clvde stallion.  ���������*S������-3SR  CAPT. E. MALLANDAINE, O.C. the  Southern B.C.

The latter  two are experienced bush workers,  while the former showed a likingfor  the military life when Creston boasted  a company in the 107th Kootenay  fiegiment.  A new face is seen at headquarters  now. P. DeVere Hunt of Cranbrook  is now on the staff of the 107th, as  assistant to Pay Sergt. Crowe, who is  on an official trip to Morrissey this  week. The draft also boasts a new  Hag at the meu's quarters. A brand  new Canadian flag, about three by  six feet having been put into use the  latter part of the week.  In addition to serving up the cats iri  good style, of quality and in generous  quantities, Chef Fraser is proving  himself as good a financier as he" is  cook and provider. Although the men  aro only taxed 00 cents a day.for  meals to date he has been able to  Peed them enough under that figure to  enable him to pay rent for.tho during  hall furnish wood, and finance all the  other ,.inoiclerituls.

Mrs. Staples; sr-v a nd F*~ VrBfcaples  of Winnipeg are spending a,few days  at the home of R. B. Staples.'  Measles have invaded .the Putnam  home in force. Four of the children  are.! laid up with them at present.  The flock of sheep belonging to R.  J.

All told three of the 22 in  the flock died as a result*-.  Sirdar  AU the visitors to Nelson returned  the latter part of the week. The decision in the Eastwood-Constable suit  for alleged unpaid wages was against  the former.. Both sides will pay their  own costs.  Mr. and Mrs. E. Webster, who haye  been visiting Mr. and Mrs. J.

Captain Johnston was of Scottish  ancestry and was born. in Kingston,  Ont., sixty-four years ago, being a  son of the fate Gilbert Jonnston. He  spent his boyhood days on Garden  Island, opposite Kingston, where his  father was foreman of the Calvin ship  building yard.  Araia such surroundings a love for  the water and for ships was born and  fostered in him. Early in life he became a sailor, being first employed  as an engineer. His abilities soon  won for him recognition and he rapidly rose to the captaincy, being for  years in charge of the Hero, a vessel  well-known in marine circles fora long  period.  In 1894 he was appoint* d mechanical superintendent for the Richelieu  and Ontario Navigation Company, a  position which he tilled with conspicuous success. After receiving this  appointment he removed from Kingston to Montreal, and resided here for  the remainder of his life.  He retired from active work with  the Canada Steamships Limited six  months ago.  Capt. Johnston married in early  life^and his family, to whom he was  most devoted, consists of his wife,  three daughters and two sons. The  daughters are Mrs. R. J. McKelvey,  jr., whose husband passed away recently; Mrs. Fred Phelan, Montreal,  and Mrs. H. Crosthwaite, in Greston,  B.C. The sons are Ie-win, Johnston,  Montreal, now at the front, arid Gilbert Johnston, of New York.  A great uncle of Capt. Johnston  fought at the battle of Waterloo, so  his son is helping along the glorious  work in which this great uncle-was  engaged over one hundred years ago.  Capt. Johnston was one of a large  family, but all his? brothers and sisters  have passed away with the exception  (if Mrs. O'Rielly, a lady of seventy-  seven, who resides in Kingston.  No Better Corps  Ever Assembled  The spontaneous response to the  call for men for this branch of the  service is very gratifying when one  remembers that the Kootenays haye  been responding to the Empire's call  for men so freely since the outbreak  of war, and from the fact that 3000  men haye enlisted in the 107th East  Kootenay Regiment for overseas  seryice���������not only in the 54:th and 225th  Battalions, but also for other branches  of the seryice overseas such as the  Corps, P'  Foresters, etc  irAp������:  :im&i  Army Medical Corps, Pioneers,   En-  ZB&BB&OBW  mZfSWV  Creston  Mesdames  Tuesdav.  cullers  Dennes  this  and  week    were  Aspey   on  Rev.

The unit, as it is now, is a self-contained one in eyery respect, having-  due regard to its.specialline of service,  aud we have only to cite the qualifications of a few of its member's to  show this.  Capt. E. Mallandaine, the commanding officer, is a civil engineer and a  thorough woodsman. Formally years  he was chief timber ranger of B.C.-  Land Department of the C.P.R.,'  managing their mills and logging  operations, and complete charge of  hundreds of men. _���������  Lieut. Horace Venus was for many  years a member of the Royal North-  West Mounted Police, and* has had a  varied: experience in the tall timber  since he came to Kootenay.  Lieut. M. D. McLean, who hails  'from New Brunswick, not only work-  , ed in the coal mines there but also  followed**lumbering, afterwards coming west where he has, worked in the  woods not only as foreman but as  mill superintendent, and latterly a*  underground boss in the coal mines of  East Kootenay. ���������  Corp; B.C St,Cl.iir is a well-known  tinitiefva^id land cruiser," and was for  many years with the C.P.R. in these  capacities. Pte. J. Al Gibson has been  ;i lumberman all his life, owning his  own sawmill, and therefore conversant  with all phases of the lumbering  business.  Pte. Wm. Grice is a well known  millwright���������at one time having worked in a mill at Creston, under the late  C. Miller. Pte. W. G. Robiuson is a  first class machinist and engineer, and  was for many years with the Grand  Trunk Railway.  Pte. A. Arbijokle, who came in this  week from ^Jaffray is another all  round experienced man of the woods.  He has been with the East Kootenay  Lumper Co. for eight years, during  which time lie had charge of the mill  at Loco, and served well ns accountant,  shipper and bush foreman.  Such men as Ptes. Thain, Stanhope  and Jack McMillan have all boen in  charge of men in tho woods, und are  experienced woodsmen and hewers.  Corp. Sam Scott and Pto. E. Hark-  noss aro equally well known not only  on account of their knowledge as log- -  gers bnt as road builders an well.  Both have been foremen on govorn-  men road building.  As to carpenters Corps. Watson and  Payne, Ptes. Pepler. Baines, Craggy  and others makes a full list. Besides  all these there are a number of lirst-  class teamsters, and a good showing of  ranchers and farmers. .

"You won't bc gone long?" she  asked with a touching wistfulness  which went to his heart.  "Not a moment long"er than I can  help."  He kissed her again and again, aud  then dashed away out of the room  and down thc stairs to face ihe most  unpleasant business in which he had  ever been engaged.  At the foot of thc stairs he met the  butler once more.  "There's awful trouble being made  out there, Sir Penywern," hc said  gloomily.. '-"That Mr. Gartwell, he's  taking things with a very high hand,  and asking questions, aud having his  say just as^if hc was on thc bench.  He's been dragging answers out of  thc stable boys, Sir Penywern, such  as he has no sort of call to do."  Sir Penywern frowned.  "We must put a stop to that," he  said briefly, as hc snatched his hat  from   the   hall   table.  "Yes, sir, if you can," retorted thc  butler gloomily.  When Sir Penywern reached thc.  spot near the pond where the discovery had been made, he found such a  concourse of people among the trees  and round the water that he had a  difficulty in clearing his way to the  little knot of persons gathered close  to thc log undev whieh the body had  been unearthed.  Someone in the crowd recognized  him, however, and called out:  "Make way for Sir Penywern, make  way, please."  There was a hush at once ovcr the  crowd, and many of theni, being his  own. .servants and dependent1*., made  haste to withdraw, rushing through  the brushwood with a crackling and  a crashing of timber, and leaving an  open path for him to the little open  hpacc which was being kept .icar by  the two policemen present, and by  the gardeners and stablemen who  were helping them.  Sir Penywern went forward and  iccogni-'.ed Dr. Gold, his own mcd.-  cal man, who approached him al once  apologetically.  "I'm conrotmiledly sorry to have  been called to such a business aa  this, Sir Penywern," said he, drawing  the baronet away from the Vest of the  group, and speaking with sympathy  and regret.

The closing of the breweries  as such has not destroyed their value  as  factories,  and  they arc  being  pur  to various uses.    In Tuscon, Arizona,  one brew-cry was turned into a malted milk plant, and is striving for top  hole in this line.    Another has turned  to canning, a third into a creamery, and a fourth has became a    refrigerating plant.    A Denver brewery  has also  gone  in  for    malted    milk.  One of thc important factors    about  thc change is that thc new businesses  employ three    times    as many hands  as the breweries.    Probably thc economic   side   of     thc    argument    will  eventually have  far    greater    weight  than thc old-fashioned appeal to ethics or morals.    Railways and    banks  and other institutions arc not in    the  least concerned about thc moral side  of thc prohibition question, but they  nre  unanimous   in   exacting    prohibition .among their employees,  foi* the  simple   reason   that    efficiency    pays,  and when a man is paid for his time  the utmost efficiency  is  expected  for  the  money,  even  at  thc   expense    ot  prohibition.    It  has been   found  that  there is more money to spend in retail  purchases   where  prohibition  has  been adopted, than formerly, and this  had the effect of lining up the wholo  of the retail  trade  against  their  former    chief    competitor.      Uusinesser.  that   have   found   their   turnover     increased a third or a half, or even in  some cases doubled, are  not anxious  to   face . a  condition     wliich     would  bring  back  thc old   stale    of affairs.  The   legitimate   hotel   business     docs',  not appear to have suffered from the.v  adoption    of    prohibition     anywhere,  and   while   some   houses   have     been  closed  they   were  such    as  subsisted  entirely  on   bar   receipts.     The   erection of new and palatial hotels in prohibition  districts  indicates  that   mine  host slill perceives profits.��������� Prom the  Toronto World.  MRS.

Last spring, quite late, I sowed  several acres broadcast, and in spite  of a very protracted drouth, the plant  made a remarkable growth. Hogs  and -calves were turned in when tne  grass was about three and one-half  lcct high. Thc stock ate it ravenously, making a splendid gain. After the  crop was well eaten down, the stock  were transferred to another pasture,  and in three weeks the second crop  was again ready ior them. By having two fields, sowing one two weeks  uetore the other, and changing the  stock from one pasture to tiie other  as the crop is grazed, a first-class  pasture can be maintained during the  .-mire summer.  My experience during the past two  years with budan grass convinces me  / that it is one of tiie most drouth-re-  ' sisting crops grown either for hay. or  pa s ture.T^-'bxc ba nge.

Unless the inflammation can be reduced and  this tube restored -to its normal condition,  bearing will be destroyed forever. Many  cases of deafness . are caused by catarrh,  which is an inflamed condition of the mucous  surfaces.

Special Arrangements Being Made to'  Facilitate Handling of Pensions  The Dominion Government have  appointed a Board of Pension Commissioners for Canada with offices in  Ottawa. As this Board wish to cause  as little delay as possible iu dealing  with communications with regard to  pensions, they wish the public to correspond directly with the Board of  Pension  Commissioners,  Ottawa.  A great deal of delay may be caused by    communications    being    sent!  through   other   Departments   of    the  Government.  The Patriotic Fund Association  and the Military Hospitals Commission have kindly consented to* give  information and assistance to those  wishing to direct to the Board of  Pension Commissioners. These societies have offices in certain localities  throughout  Canada.  In addition in order to facilitate  the^ granting of pensions, the Board  is opening Branch pension offices in  Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, London, Hamilton,  '1 orortto, Barrie, Kingston, Ottawa,  Montreal, Quebec, St. John and Halifax._ All information with regard to  pensions may bc obtained from these  offices.

MAR. 23  Go Easy  Down in the Okanagan country  a movement is already under way  taj have the Dominion Government  place an embargo on American  fruit coming into Canada this  season in case Britain refuses to  admit Canadian fruit into that  country as per the order to this  effect issued the early part of the  month.  Others would go further even  than this in prohibiting the entry  >>f American fruit into Canada,  holding that even if Britain  admits Canadian apples aud refuses to receive the American pro-  duet, if the latter is allowed unrestricted   entry   into   Canada   the  be   ail   shot to  home   market  will  pieces.  Undoubtedly this heading oil'of  American competition on the  Canadian as well as tbe Old Country  markets might create an ideal  state of affairs for the B.C. grower,  and again it might not. Those who  kept tab on the marketing of the  1916 crop will remember that the  prairie buyers showed keen resentment of the imposition of the extra  15 ceuv-s a box duty by the Borden j  Government last session by buying j  many carloads of American apples, j  to say nothing of stiil greater  quantities from Eastern Canada,  and this iu spite of the fact that  we had been led* to believe tliat  hitherto their preference had been  for B.C. apples.  The prairie consumer had an  idea in the back of his head that  the added duty was a little special  favor to the B.C. agriculturist and  seeing a similar helpful concession  was not granted him in the way  of getting his grain onto the  American market without tariff  resttictions many of them bought  inferior Ontario fruit at a higher  price than the hitherto-preferred  15.C. apples.  In addition to it being poor  businese to unduly antagonize the  customers on our natural prairie  market, it strikes The REVIEW  that it is equally unwise to be  looking to the authorities at  Ottawa to juggle with the tariff  every time the welfare of any  particular industry seems threaten  ed. Tariffs must be reasonably  stable if commercial development is  to be maintained, and even the all-  important agricultural industry  can hardly expect tariff favors that  it would be slow to concede other  lines of trade, except in times of  exceptional stress.  The authoritses are, plugging  away with the British authorities  on this apple embargo, and although, there is no assurance of any  providing of farm lands for returned soldiers, he put up to the Brewster  administration   the best proposition in this direction that oan  be found anywhere in the province.  Mr. Schofield  directed attention  to the 40,000 acres in the Kootenay  Flats  adjacent   to   Creston.    The  land,   he   pointed   ont,   is located  right on the railway, it was by far  the largest   block   of agricultural  land owned  by   the  crown   in the  more settled regions of the province  and it would meet   all   the   conditions   which   were  considered   essential in any   effective scheme for  providing   returned   soldiers   with  homes on the land.    He  estimated  thau the  land   would   be sufficient  for   2000   returned     soldiers   who  wished    to become   farmers.    The  location    was   such    that   railway  and steamboat facilities were near  at hand, the settlement   would   be  compact,   which   would keep   to a  minimum   the   cost    of   providing  schools and  roads and   the soldier-  settlers would have   the advantage  of keeping together.  As Mr. SehoKeld makes clear,  undoubtedly- if the returned  soldiers are to be attracted to the  land two things at least are very  essential: The men must be held  together in consideradle numblrs.  The old saying about birds of a  feather    Hock   together   will    hold  good in this case as never before.  Overseas they fought together for  a common cause, and if they''are  of the right stuff undoubtedly  something of this same spirit will  pivvade them on the laud, and be  a considerable factor in making  theni contented and successful in  agricultural pursuits. But the  colonies must be large. They haye  been use to lots of company in the  camps aud on the battlefield, and  if this is to be denied them in any  returned-soldier scheme of things  the proposition is not like to prove  attractive to the vast majority.  And the location, of their agri'  cultural activities ~" is almost  equally as important Farming,  at best, will not appeal any too  strongly to them, and to put them  out on bush areas in northern B.C.,  miles away from any likely-looking natural markets or real touches  of modern life, would be hopeless if  not impossible to attract soldiers to  even temporarily.  Viewed from every standpoint  these overflowed lands h.ave everything in the province beaten when  it comes to successful returned  soldiers land settlement and John  Keen will miss the chance of a lifetime to demonstrate his ability to  do things for his constituents if he  fails to keep after this reclamation  proposition until some definite  assurance is given one way or the  other in the undertaking.  In these days when B.C. is  suffering from insufficient agricultural production these 40,000 acres  are altogether too productive and  ideally located to be stand idle���������  and this notwithstanding government's plea that rigid economy  must be practised if the provincial  administration is to be got back on  the whole political lump and get  the administration of public affairs  back where both political parties  originally intended such matters  shonld be conducted, it is eseential  that the women's vote should not  be as easily grouped into party  camps as is the voting proclivities  of the male of the species.  And to hold this balance of  power, as it were, it is highly essential fchat the ladies receive their  impressions along this line in an  atmosphere where it will be possible to approach all sides of  questions with an open mind, and  having gleaned all that is obtainable under these conditions it  should be possible for the ladies to  come to an intelligent and unbiased opinion or most questions of the  day.  And having done this, if they  will go out and mark their ballots  accordingly the country will at  least be none the worse for their  having the franchise, though we  fancy, for a time  line   politicians  trouble getting  in accord with the  uew order of things.  Conducted with a view to unwavering independence and no  personal liability of any manner  whatsoever such an organization  will mean much to the Valley,  not only politically, but in other  directions, and we bespeak for the  project the best consideration of all  directly interested.  watched with interest. If there is  money available to build and equip  flour mills at Cranbrook  why not  similar consideration for Creston  in the way of a canning factory  with cider making plant on the  side.  4.11   UUC?

If the women are going to "take  sides" then I think the whole object  of giving the Women vthe vote will be  lost, because this privilege of voting  has come, as a great surpriss to most  women, has found them unprepared,  aud very ignorant on the subject of  politics generally and the different  platforms in particular.  There are so many questions of  vital importance to women that need  remedying, and if the women of  Canada will but stand shoulder to  shoulder there is no measure they cannot get through the legislature. If  ��������� they divide into"partks" then the old  state of thiugs will prevail and we  ean do nothing.  One of our biggest,grievances in the  past was thut we were bracketed with  ���������idiots, -lunatics and irresponsible  persons" and if the women vote as  their men folk tell them to���������as I have  heard many of them sneeringly remark���������if they don't use their brains  to think out and understand for  themselves and vote accordingly, then  they deserve to be bracketed with  "idiots, lunatics and irresponsible  persons.  I think the women will do well to  study provincial politics first before  taekling Imperial affairs. Let us  know what we are doing and not act  and know as little as the average man,  Our aim should be of the highest, free  from bigotry and narrowness. The  fundamental"principles of Right never  vary in any christian countries���������we  are out for right whatever name the  men may call it; it is up to us to insist on it, but it can only be done by  standing united.  Never let us forget we haye won  this vote on what our fellow sisters  have done in Europe since the war*  broke out. We have proved to the  world, through them, what we can do  when the need arises.  I shall be glad to have suggestions  about this Non-Partizan Club?

The possibilities of  the Valley are immense, and there is  nothing to keep it'.from becoming one  of the leading fruit centres of the  province or, for that matter, of the -  Northwest.  Although apples may be taken as  the staple crop the industry does not  :  stop here by any means,  and I hope'  to ^OU^ll C*i ���������^*S Oth*3** "isSHOS   lS.t*3S* Oii. A  The data I have by me regarding the  various ranches must not be taken as  complete, but only of -a general  natui-e. Full reports were returned-;.;  to tbe government and will, no doubt,  appear later, compiled in bulletin  form. Jos. Heath.  At the annual meeting of Creston  Fruit Growers Union, Limited, one of  our worthy champions, Mr. James  Compton, told ..us of a word battle he  had at the convention of the B.C.  Fruit Growers Association with an  Okanagan grower.  ' The latter, it seems, was claiming  for his territoery���������and rightly so���������  the honor of being the biggest producing centre of the province, 'but  when it came to the question of  financing the fruit advertising scheme  Mr. Compton had something to say.  Well, we know what he is like when  he gets going, and we .can imagine  the feeling of his opponent by the  time he -was through with him.  It set nie thinking as to how long  the Okanagan would take the lead,  and whether in the not-distant future  the Creston Valley would be rapidly  overhauling it. It is quite possible,  and probable, that such may be the  case.  Some of us have recollections of the  first whole car of apples sent out of  the district, and we thought we had  accomplished a. great thing; That was  about four or five years--ago. Last  season's apple crop must have been  in the neighborhood of 50 cars, and  this crop was below ihe normal 60 percent. This, of course, was due to  disastrous climatic conditions prevalent throughout the entire North  west. Z  Thousands of young trees are coming into bearing every year and it  will not be long before we reach the  300 car mark���������soonerjn fact than most  people think. From the 300- to the  500 car mark will not be a very big  step at the rate of production at this  stage, and then the 1000 car mark  looms into view, y  In the interval between the present,  and the latter stage much has to be  done to put the district on a sound  commercial basis, and it behooves  eveiy rancher to work along lines  that will tend not only to individual,  but to mutual interest as well, but of  this more anon.  "It's an ill wind that blows no one  any good," is an old adage, and it was  verified once more in the partial  crop failure of last season. ��������� Scab was  very prevalent and many ranchers  were fighting it not at all, or only in  a half ���������hearted manner. The consequence was a lot of unmarketable  fruit.  Had things been more propitious  and the big drop had not occurred  those who did not effectively spray  would have had a serious strain put  upon the trees insomuch as the building up of fruit bud for the coming  year would have been an impossibility,  for everything pointed ut the beginning of the season to a bumper yield.  So then let us realize a small crop of  inferior fruit is better than a full crop  of same.  And then as to scab control. It is  very gratifying to see the manner in  which ranchers are awakening to the  fact that they must thoroughly spray  to effect a cure. The Government  experimental plot at Stocks & .lack-  son's ranch, also the determined and  successful efforts of these and a few  other growers in the Valley to overcome the pest did an enormous a-  mount of good, instilling hope when  despair Hoomed deeply rooted amongst  the majority of growers.  Bnt this terror is now a thing of the  past. Orchardists now realize that by  putting their shoulder to the wheol  they will be victors' And yet, after  all ia said and dono, the remedy is  oxponsive. Yot, even so, it is tho  only moans by which thb grower can  como out on the right side. Neglect  your orchards in this respect and you  spell financial failurt. Got down to  work with a will and you will produce  apples at a profit.  Of course research work should not  stop here and 1 feel confident that in  ther near future improved methods for  fighting fungoid pestu will come to  light, and the laborious method* now  ill vogue will be rendered obsolete.  Spraying, then, a������ now wo have it  j must be  the stepping stone to snmc-  jibing   hotter,   anil   until  thnt v.r.n.r-  thing* turns up we must prosecute it  for all It ih worth.

Dire Results of  Overeating  From the standpoint of  health man's cardinal sin  is overeating.  The digestive system can  look after a certain amount  of food, but when continually crowded the food mass  iu delayed in the alimentary  canal and what is not digested ferments.

The  writer says that all the wonders    of  the world, ancient, or    modern    fade  when compared with what Britain is  doing today.   A commercial nation "of  not  50,000,000  people   suddenly  summoned to arms where no arms existed has produced a bigger army than  history ever before recorded, and . a  war machine    in    Europe    that    for  wealth of shell, explosive    and    war  ��������� power -is the amazement of the Germans.    Britain  has    done    in  thirty  months  what  Germany    took    thirty  years to do, and she has done it more  thoroughly and    on    a    vaster''scale.  Without an- English airplane    engine  capable  of circling  hcr  own    islands  she has vanquished the boasted    Zeppelin and is"the mistress of her own  skies.    With submarines by the hundred threatening hcr    coast defences  and  her  food  supply  she  has  swept  all oceans, bottling the German fleet,  with  the exception of an odd    raider  like the Moewe and the vessel that is  now  preying  upon   merchantmen    in  ian   soldiers  have    married     English] the South Atlantic.    She has made, as  girls  while    in    England.      A  desire    " *  was expressed also by soldiers,    who  did not    expect    to   y bc    away from  home   so  long  when     they    enlisted.  The example of the French law was  much quoted in the controversy.  "I was brought up on a farm, and  I'm  glad of it."  '"Yes?",  "You bet your life. Whenever I  think I'm working too hard I just  stop and think of thc time when I  had to get up at 4 o'clock and work  like a  slave until  dark."  the writer says, "thc English- Channel her multiple track ocean railway  to France, with no loss by Zeppelin  or submarine; fought in Africa, in the  Canal, the Dardanelles; grappled  with thc Turk and the Bulgar; changed generals and admirals in command; change'd cabinets; fed the armies of France; maintained the armies and the governments of Belgium aud Serbia, and altogether advanced three, thousand.-" million of  dollars,  or  three  times  thc    national  metal industries and transformed  them into munition plants. This is  not, as the writer says, a fight between armies; it is a struggle between nations, aud in England every  man, woman and child is devoted to  only one object, the winning of thc  War.  The -writer calls  attention "to     the  fact that this is not merely a struggle  between   the  finance,     the "metal  and the soldiers of two rival groups.  It is also a struggle for economic existence in order that the fighting forces may be increased.    Germany was  the first of the belligerents to realize  that   war  power   might   be   increased  by cutting out luxuries; but England  has grasped the fact and she is prepared  to  gq as far as  Germany    or  even farther in denying herself any-"  thing  whose;.consumption  might  delay the end of the war.    Thc British  peopie  are   organizing    in     clothing-jr--  food,  drink,   the  discarding    of    unnecessary    comforts,    increase in the  energies and hours of labor and the  mutual burdens of all forms of taxation.    And  the nation will be better  for it after thc war. As Lloyd George said, the nation has been in training.    Whatever the war debt of thc  Empire is when the fight is ovcr, it  will  be  easily  dealt  with  by  people  vvho have learned the    lessons    that  the English people are learning    and  who will not forget the lessons; yet  the writer quoted says that while the  world is coming into a new civilization, the people in the United States  appear  to   have  little  comprehension  o"f the issues and  the  economic-   results that must inevitably flow therefrom.  ������H������nnihiiiiiiii!Himiiiiiiiiiiiim  mWX *���������*������������������.  debt  lies.  the United States,  al-  Tfre Tractor ������mm  This is admittedly some considerable achievement for thc "ice-cold  haberdashers of the Thames."

H. Sanders, instructor of farm motors in the  Kansas Agricultural College. If the  farmer demands it the designing- engineer will'construct engines to- do  every task which thc horse docs today.  "J������st  as   horse   power in  the past  jhas supplanted the man with the hoc,  sc in the future the tractor will supplant thc horse," says Mr. Sanders.  "It took man many years to realize  hc could greatly increase his effiici-  ency. Today few men realize tha������  thc tractor is(slowly taking the place  of the horse for all manner of farm  work. It is replacing thc horse for  thc same reason that the horse replaced thc slave���������it is more efficient."  The advent of thc tractor, believes  Mr Sanders,' means changes in the  methods of agriculture just as the  working of horses has meant changes  in methods since the work was done  by slaves. Next spring, at least three  traction companies will place upon  the market engines designed especially for the cultivation of rowed  crops. This is an indication of the  tiend of progress in thc manufacture  of tractors.  mi  No Need To Rub!
