It is of - a  special- and; appropriate design for a  forestry corps, and along with the.  usual wording will also carry the inscription "Floreafc Grestphia" (May  Ci'eston Flourish."

Daphne, who had come out of her  room with Sir Penywern, was waiting: in the corridor, near the head of  the stairs. She retreated instinctively  a few steps when she saw her hu->-  band meet the butler, and could not  hear more than a dozen words of  what they "were saying-, for Fenner  kept his voice as low as he could, not  wishing to make his alarming statement within hearing- of the lady.  When, however, the butler had  gone downstairs, and his master had  comc up, husband and wife met, and  the first look exchanged was a revelation.  "They've ��������� they've found something?" asked she in an agitated  whisper.  Hc nodded.  "Let us go back to your room, and 5  I'll tell you everything," he said. S  When they were once mors in thc  big Victorian chamber, with its brocaded hangings illuminated and exposed by the modern electric light,  they both remained a few moments  without  speaking.  Neither dared to begin.  He on his side, knowing that thc  discovery just made must throw hare  the whole business, and expose them  to distresses and trials which it was  almost impossible to think of with  reasonable calmness, could not find  words in which to tell her thc truth.  She, meanwhile, vvith her thoughts  directed to a smaller issue, was afraid  to ask thc question on hcr lips: was  hcr father arrested? I  It was shc, however, who recovered first. \  "What  is  it  they have found?"  "The body of  Rathbone,  1  think."  Shc nodded, as if relieved. m  "In thc wood near the pond," she S  said with the assurance of one    who  knew.  This tone was .startling.  "You knew?" said he sharply.  "Yes.    My aunt's little d*3g, Chin-  chin, was  scratching under a log in  the wood, and���������I guessed what was  there." ������V  Sir Penywern looked askance at his  wife.

Woaderiui Kevival  Of Canadian Business  Business Much Greater During Period of Stress Than Before the  War ������������������'-.- |  Like the great nations of Europe  which arc deep in the war,.Canada excites wonder by the volume ot business being done and the extent and .  expansion of commerce which i? carried on without the help of more than  200,000 Canadian soidiers in service  in France and on other, battle fronts,  ���������.oid notwithstanding the losses sustained in the tremendous struggle to  which the Dominion has given 400,-  000 of its citizens. With - fewer men  to do the -work more traffic is carried  on than in time of peace. Now the  ! foreign commerce of Canada is going  j on at a rate equal to about two and  . onej-half times that of thc United  I States in proportion to the population, although the foreign trade of  '.his country has become thc marvel cf  the world.

Residents on this side of the river  are only very indirectly interested  in the matter, their only anxiety  being as to whether the grading of  the river banks at the new ferry  location will let the Kootenay go  on a rampage anywhere and everywhere on the flats when the spring  freshets are higher than usual.  Some of thorn may protest that  it will c������"8t too much money; but  such an argument is at best an  excuse, and a very flimsy one at  that. If the same amount w*re to  be spent in improvements in front  of or near by their properties it  would bo a case of "To hell with  expense, the Valley needs the  money," or even something more  vigorous.  Settlers across the river, with  the exception of ono /rent-Ionian  who, like the Irishman Jn politics,  is always agin' what other folks  want, are unanimous for the ferry  moving, and havo mado ont a  splendid case for the change. Some  of thorn havo been living across tho  river for years and should bo able  to speak with authority as to how  the river huh a von in both high and  low water.

This 20 per  cent advance is, the more remarkable  as it follows an increase of over nine  millions, or 11 per cent in 1915, making an increase for the two years of  $27,500,000 or 33 per cent.

Similar strengthening of the financial position of businesses generally,  through the liquidation of hank indebtedness from cash profits has prevented much expansion of current  loans and discounts in Canada, which  stand practically thc same as in thc  previous year The new funds at the  disposal of the Bank are invested  chiefly in liquid assets and cash, of  which the Bank holds $56,587,852,  compared with $39,138,385 at .the end  of 1915. This increase of seventeen  and a half millions follows an increase of nearly thirteen million dollars during the previous ycar, and  constitutes an extremely strong reserve, readily convertible "into cash.  It is interesting to note that of this  reserve $16,546,248 is invested in Dominion and Provincial Government  Securities, Canadian Municipal Securities and British, Foreign and Col-  oniar\Publ?c Securities other than  Canadian, whereas a year ago the  amount similarly invested was but lit-  I tie over one million dollars. By far  thc greater proportion of this sixteen  million item consists of securities oi  the Imperial Government issued for  the financing of munition business in  Canada  The note issue of thc Bank has increased over a million dollars, to  $3,815,117, vvith a corresponding increase in thc War Tax on Bank Note  circulation  to $50,000.

She anually gives her own  weight in milk, from two to ten. times  according to the nature and quality of  her breed, and is apt to pay for herself the first year.  When the local pride of the small  town gets aroused it takes all sorts  of unexpected developments. One of  the little cities in northeast Missouri  raised money among its citizens and  started a small flouring null of 25  bbl capacity per day, where farmers  could bring their wheat to be ground  Among the many social and economic movements of the dny there  is no one so fraught, with promise as  rural community work, for it seeks to  solve thc problem of life'on tbe farm  and to justify the existence of the  country, town. It is threshing old  straw to tell of thc various . plans  which, under the guise pf eliminating thc middleman, seek to make the  small town an unnecessary economic  unit. The country storekeeper soon  found tliat the answer was not the  often futile attempt to merely meet  the prices of the mail-order house.  He was quite right in his contention that the farmer netlHed the small  town as much as the small town  needed the farmer, but hc was entirely forgetful that the trouble lay primarily in thc failure of thc small town  to sec its duty and to do it* all due  to the misconception that *he farm-.  er was mostly a customer, rather than  also a friend and neighbor. The answer was found in that statement  which afterward came to be known  as the "Trenton Idea," that the size  of each town was not its corporate  limits, but the extent of i^s influence  in the surrounding country. Likewise,  that the problem was a social rather  than an economic one, and its motto was summed up in the phrase  *'Lcarn to know your neighbor,    lest  you like him."    Also that if the town   farmer in times of "drouth, for     the  follows that motto, the gates ot Heil  preserv;ftg through the winter of that  AM  HTAIN M'AOTNfi PRffPARlTfflN FOR  .jj-j2*iiii liIriuEllUriuus num 1WU IMV  isNSIYE ON WESTERN froni  All Germany now appears to have  come to the conclusion that the submarine is the weapon of the future  for thc German nation, and that complete victory for' Germany, which  means utter annihilation for her enemies can and will thereby be attained. ���������  Day and night the shipyards are  never resting. Already submarines  in large numbers are in commission  Indeed, apparently, the only limit ..to  thc number in commission is the  great difficulty of securing crews  adequately trained, so that new submarines should not prove a greater  danger to;the crews than to unarmed  enemy ships.     ���������  One of the chief training centres  for the new crews of new submarines  is Kiel Harbor. There any day may  be seen about thirty of the newest  and largest submarines being ^used  solely for the purpose of training  crews;,but this is hy no means the  only centre.  The outline of the bows is described as? being like the blade of a  scythe, pointing upwards out of the  water.    By some process, said to be  MARVELLOUS OUTPUT OF THE MUNITION PLANTS  More Heavy Gun Ammunition Turned Out Every Forty-Eight  Hours Than Was Manufactured During the Entire First Year  Ol the War, and Production Still Increasing  and could get rough -feed stuff, which  heretofore   they  had  been  buving in ...  car lots from far-away Kansas!"   They  newly  invented,   this    blade    is   ex  had thus an immediate market for  their grain, and had their feed stuff  from their own products at much less  than they hitherto paid. So there  are more farmers coming to this little  town���������Edina���������than ever before. Not  content with this, the county���������Knox  ���������in which this little town is situated put on a campaign for silos and  alfalfa throughout the country. Alfalfa is a word to conjure with every  English munitions factories are now  turning out every forty-eight hours  more heavy gun ammunition than  they manufactured in the entire first  year of the war, and the production  is still increasing week .by .week-In  preparation for the great offensive on  the western front which British military critics believe will comc this  spring.  Although figures of the ,-jictual production of guns and munitious are  jealously guarded, and there is no  avowal on the part of the_ Ministry  of Munitions of any intention to discontinue the importations from America, there- is an evident feeling of .  optimism among  thc  officials  in the  where in the West and South, fori a disaster occurred. lhc submarm  though diard to start it is almost in- was released, and glided down th  destructible when once it takes root,  slips   with increasing speed.      Whe  The  silo  is  the  dependence of    the  shall not prevail against it  It all comes back to the real, self-  evident  economic    fact,  not    to    be  found in text books, that you are apt  to do business with those you know  and like.   Immediately the circle widens, for if Trenton, Miss., enlarges its  business and social bounds to takc in  -many more miles of contiguous territory, then it immediately becomes interested in  the  development of that  contiguous territory.    So, too,    does  that great city in Missouri with which  Trenton trades.   Now, just as soon as  *Trenton got that idea into its head  about the contiguous territory it immediately  got   out   of   its   head  that  other idea, only this time a mistaken  one of most small towns, about getting factories to enliven the      place  and give it prosperity.'    For Trenton  then perceived that it .was surrounded  by a number of factories, in the shape  of farms, which produced the    most  essential  things  in  the    world���������food  and raiment���������and which, under proper  care,  would go  on  producing    them  forever and a day.   Likewise, that the  ; hc Trenton commercial  world was to    foregather    with  these farmers, so that by mutual help  8"'| co-operation the product   of these  same farms might be increased and  multiplied, so that the fanners themselves and Trenton, with which    the  farmer traded, might all bc    greatly  benefited,    lt    soon    developed    that  way to do these  very practical business    things,    and  .that was to first unite the town ancl  the countryside in social bonds.  Thc town must bc made the life  and inspiration of the surrounding  country It must furnish amusement  and education to the country folks  round about it, must have an "cpera  house" and "movies", a public library  or reading ��������� room, attractive stores  and restaurants or hotels, churches  and good schools, and thc farmers  must be made a part of this social life.  With good roads and automobiles,  communication and sociability between town and country become easy  ���������and constant, and after that the matter of trading* together follows as  night follows day The real difficulty,  and thc real solution of thc diihculty,  is to arouse thc local pride of the  town and thc rest is easy. There are  a thousand ways of giving expression  to this local pride, and the more tilled and elemental they are the more  effective  thc result*-;.  One plan is for the bankers of the  town to organize a boys' pig club  -among thc farmer boys of the surrounding country The ^banker lends  each boys- enough money to buy a  pig, and takes the boy's note for it  The Agricultural College of the Slate  University sends the boy instructions  in feeding and caring for the pig.

What it is is told in the story of the  little girl who got her catechism mixed, and said that a He "was an ever-  present help in time of trouble."  -��������� Another city in northeast Missouri  had been greatly content with itself  for many years.-and consequently was.'  fast asleep and weary. One day "there  came a live wire to that town, and it  suddenly woke and got- going, and  has been going ever since at a pace  which makes Ruth Law look as if  she were tied to a post It has a live  commercial club which knows all the  farmers in the.-country, attends all  their social functions, brings them in  to town to all the various entertainments, and is taxing itself to build  better roa4s all over the county  Another Rip Van Winkle of a" Missouri town was awakened from its  long slumber- by this same live wire,  and thc rejuvenated commercial club  formed an offensive and defensive alliance with all the farmers within ten  miles. One of its stunts is a series  of baseball matches with the farmers in the neighboring townships.  Most remarkable of all is the story  of an abandoned parish in the county  district of northwest Missouri.    Not  long ago it was taken hold of by   a  quiet, unassuming clergyman.    Today  it is the centre of life and inspiration  to all  the surrounding country.      It  has football, baseball, tennis and basketball teams.    It has reading clubs,  literary and dramatic    clubs,      good  .roads associations, and farmers' clubs.  It is an example of modern, scientific  agriculture,   and  of  sanitary,  wholesome  living  on  thc  farm.    Business  has   followed   sociability  and   human  contact and friendliness in every one  of these endeavors.   So likewise there  have come better ways of agriculture  and more productiveness.   Also thero  haye been other things than mere material gain    Everywhere    throughout  the rural   West thc cry is for more  and better schools, and for all those  opportunitics-'of    enlightenment    and  knowledge that have been so long denied the dwellers in thc countryside.  Such is  this great    movement, . thc  stirring of local pride and ambition,  which is slowly but surely changing  the face of all economic and social  life throughout the West and South.  ���������Archer Wall Douglas in Hardware  Age.  tremely hard and extremely sharp, so  that when the submarine, travelling  :it a. moderate speed, strikes a wire  hawser an inch and a half thick, it  cuts it through as if mere hempen  rope.

"The improvement in our positron  may bc illustrated in this way," remarked an official of the Ministry.  "We are now manufacturing every  week three times as many 155-millimetre shells, five times as many 200-  millinictre shells, and three times as  many 230-millimetre shells as we  manufactured during the whole first  year of the war.  "Of smaller shells, we are turning  nit in about a week the same quantity as was produced during the. hrst  year. Finally, the number of shells  of all kinds completed during the  past week exceeded by about thirty  per. cent, the entire" stock    of muni  tions held in reserve at thc outbreak  of hostilities."  Dealing with guns in the same jivay,  it is found that, representing lhe  number of guns manufactured during  the first year of the war by 100 lhe  number for the second year would be  841, and for_ the third year it wiii be  somewhere in thc. neighborhood of  1,350.  The manufacture of lighter pieces  has had to be slackened recently, owing to the fact that the equipment  of the British army in light field  pieces is approximately complete,  and it is only necessary to provide  for replacements and renewals.  The improvement in thc manufacture of machine guns, rifles, grenades and explosives has been equally satisfactory.  Representing the total number of  machine guns delivered tb the army  during the first year as 100, the total for the second ycar was 1.250 and  for the third year will exceed 6,000;  The production of trench motar  ammunition and grenades has been  so much developed that any further  increase scarcely seems necessary. .  The increase in the manufacture of  explosives has been tremendous. For  every ton of explosive employed in,  September, 1914, 250 tons were employed in July, 1915, and 12,000 tons  in July, 1916.
