(To Be Continued.}  Fear That Wounded Men    Do Not  Receive Proper Treatment  Is Dispelled  An Ontario minister the other day  borrowed from thc Military Hospitals Commission a set of lantern  slides. These slides show what goes  en at the hospitals and sanatoria,  l'hai is, they show something of how-  cur injured soldiers are being restored to health and to power for self-  support, however serious their injuries may bc. The minister exhibited the slides at * three country  churches under his charge. In rc-  tt*rfiing thc set he writes:  "My recording steward, who is also the postmaster and chairman of  thc local recruiting league, says they,  should be shown in every community.  Ihey meet thc unrest in many taiui-  lics who have feared that the maimed who return will be forced to sell  lead pencils or such like.  "What 1 should have done waa to  ask for  them  a longer    period    and  put them on in every available church  in this district..,> A man with a well  prepared lecture ;,and a , few local  ���������slides could render a valuable service to the .country,..both'in allaying*  the unrest above" referred to and in  removing the prejudice in some families from which recruits might -be  secured."   ... -  The Troublesome Bore  Matt. W. Ransomc, once Senator-  from North Carolina, made politeness  a point of "conscience. One day ho  saw thc very worst bore of his acquaintance, and, with a short "Howdy-do?" brushed swiftly past. Tha  bore, evidently hurt, proceeded sadly.  Ransom's conscience smote him.  Aftcr ten steps he turned, and with, a  pleasant smile called back:  "Good-bye,  Simpkins!      I've    been.  th.inking a mighty heap    about    yot*  -lately, Simpkins." v  The bore's face relaxed. VAh!"  said he, returning.

Then Sir Penywern. fighting for  his chance of seeing the man's features, made a discovery which for the  moment deprived him, by its terror,  of thc advantage he was slowly gaining.  For he. recognized first the cloak  and then thc scarf which the man  Vas wearing; and hc knew that the  cloak with1 the iridescent beads and  the lace scarf of which hc had found  a fragment in thc wood, were . the  garments which had been worn, on  the day of Rathbone's murder���������bv  thc person who carried his body  through thc wood and buried it bv  the  pond.  The startling revelations resulting  from this discovery caused him for  it moment to relax his hold of the  crouching man, and to step back in  voluntarily \������.ith an exclamation on  his lips.  Like a hunted animal, alert and  cunning, the man in woman's dress  sprang to his feet, and tearing himself now easily away from -the, relaxed hold of "his captor, dashed up  the -sla'trs at a pace which d'-fird pursuit, hitching up his skirts without  further attempt to hide the masculine  limb-;  beneath  th'-m.  ���������'*. w ay- w-nt Sir Penywern up the  ttwir-* nft-r him, arri'-intr, however, at  tl e sitting-room denr only'In lime  tn lu-ar the key turn in th'* lock on  tlic otlier -ide, and a subdir .-.1 chuckle  of triumph  at the  same moment.  lie Ii-.--it..'.���������:.! :'���������'���������*��������� one .'u^m.'-nt .

"i daresay I do. But I want your  explanation."  Webling, having chosen a pipe,  blew through it, and began to fill it  from his tobacco-jar in a manner  Vjhich  looked  quite unconcerned.  "I got these things," he said quietly, "from your house. I took them  out of a room on the first floor  where there were a lot more, a lot  more. I don't suppose they were  missed.

"And why were, you wearing them  tonight?" demanded  he shortly;  Webling looked up from his pipe,  into which hc was pressing the tobacco. "1 had to go and see.

Appalling Loss o������ Horses on Battle  Fronts of Europe  ��������� "It is almost, impossible for thc  mind to grasp the enormous wastage  in horseflesh o'n the. battle fronts of  Europe," remarked Thomas Stevens,  of Montreal, a capitalist who has  supplied the French government with  many horses in the last two years.  "If you* have never seen 2,500 horse's  in a bunch you cannot perhaps understand what a great ��������� number oi  animals that total makes. It has  been estimated- by thc military experts of France "that the wastage���������  and by wastage, is meant the animals  cither killed or injured, and not death  from natural causes���������in the last two  years on thc west front was between  forty-five and forty-seven thousand a  month for every mile. . In thc first  night of the drive at Verdun in e.ght  hours there was a wastage of 5,011  on thc three-mile front.  "Every eight miles along the west  front there is a horse hospital. The  percentage oj horses in these hospitals is approximately 27 placed there  for sickness, and from 68 lo 72 per  cent, because of injurfes. The United States has supplied a large number of the horses used by the armies  of the Allies. At thc beginning^ of  the war the French had about 525,000  horses, and the Germans approximately 720,000. The Allies, of course,  have purchased many thousands ov  horses from thc United States and  Canada. The supply used by Germany came mostly from Austria-  llungary and Norway and Sweden.  "Since October, 1914, there, have  been shipped from this country to  France and England about 2,815,000  horses. Thc French government has  paid to exporters through New York  for these animal", something like 380  million dollars. Yet the United States  still has u large supply of good horses  left���������not the cavalry kind, but for  held  and heavy  artillery purposes,"  ���������<?

The Whole Wheat Flour in Britain  England also, ltke Germany, has a  war bread, but she calls it standard  ot regulation bread, and it is made  oi" what is known as straight-run  flour in which part of what has heretofore been known as offals is used.  It is provided also that' not more tha-i  76 per cent, of the whole wheat is to  be used, which makec it different  from our American whole wheat  bread. The millers are also trying to  agree upon a name for the new flour  and among the names suggested o  used by some are "Early Victorian,"  "Seventy-five," ''AbundMice," _and  "Waterloo." The latter name would  make a parallel to France's "Bread  of Victory."

One  side wanted    peace  rand the other did not want it. The  record is plain. The conclusions that  must be drawn from it no longer  accm seriously contradicted even by  those who argue in favor of an inconclusive peace. It is said that Germany was so environed that shc was  justified in drawing her sword, but  that she drew it while hcr present cn-  1 citfies vycre begging hcr to agree to  arbitration and adjustment is admitted. If there is sincere belief that  this fact has no pertinence one may  justify the demand for an immediate  laying down of arms.

As  the disease progresses this twitching  takes the form of spasms in which  the jerking motion may be confined  to the head, or all the limbs may be  affected. The patient is frequently  unable to hold anything in the hands  or walk steadily, and in severe cases  the speech may be affected. The  disease is due -to impoverished nerves, owing to the blood being out of  condition and can be cured by the use  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, which enrich the blood, strengthen the nerves,  and in this way restore the sufferer  to good health.

Daylight Saving  To Bo Successful It    Must    Prevail  Over Whole o������ Canada  If the United States Congress  adopts a daylight saving measure, as  now' seems likely,. Canada will be  practically compelled to follow the  same course, for our connections  with our cousins across tlic border  are now so intimate as to make, it  very desirable that wc should have  thc same working hours. The measure proposes to make it arbitrary to  set thc clock ahead one hour over  the entire country during thc months  of long daylight. This has proved of  inestimable benefit in Europe, and it  would be equally beneficial on this  continent. In some parts of Canada  daylight saving lias been tried and  has proved more or less of a failure  This, however, has been because thc  movement in each instance was a  purely local one, adopted by municipalities. To be successful, such a  n.ensure must prevail over the whole  of Canada, and if wc can work with  Uncle Sam, as it now seems there  will be an opportunity of doing, so  much  the belter.���������Montreal  Herald.

Preparing for Eventualities  From a Statement by Capt. Bathurst  Parliamentary Secretary to the  British Ministry of Food  y  Another question was whether it  was advisable to use milk in producing butter. His answer was that if  surplus milk were available it was  of far more value to the nation converted into cheese than converted into butter. If meat ran short, cheese  was the most valuable substitute the  British farmer could possibly produce. He had also been asked  whether it was desirable to limit the  use of starch. It people chose to  wear soft collars and soft shirtfronts  they would be taking a patriotic  course (laughter); but in all these  matters they must have some sense  of proportion.

I believe  the leaders of the Allied nations will  be surprised if during the coming  summer they do not strike such a  blow as���������with other considerations  which prevail���������will lead the "war to  close on lines entirely satisfactory  for us  and  our Allies."  The Earl of Derby, Secretary of  State for -War, speaking at Bolton  expressed the firm opinion that the  critical period of the war would occur in the next few months. "t  would be a false friend," he said, "if  I did^ not warn the country that this  war is going to bc. long continued,  and the struggle even more bitter  than in the past. It can only be won  by everyone doing his ..utmost.  "The three things rrnsst vital are  money, men and munitions. Money  and munitions arc being supplied in  large quantities. Men we want and  must have! The nation vvill have to  make] greater sacrifices in the way  of giving of its manhood to fight its  battles,  "I am as confident as anyone of  the eventual result, but do not be  led away into the too great optimism  of thinking that the end is near.  "I believe we are going to see thc  critical period of the war in thc next  few months. We must face it with  courage. I confidently predict it will  be a successful six months for us, but  at the same time I do not think it  will be a walk-ever.  "You must receive bad news  equally with good news,  with the same  courage, the same gameness, and the  same   determination.       There   is   but  one motto for every man and woman  in   the  country,  namely,  to   'Stick  it  out.'    That is  what you have got to  do.    At   whatever  cost,   at   whatever  sacrifice,  stick it out to    the    bitter  end, and the bitter end will mean for  you, perhaps, privation," but for those  who  come after you  freedom     from  the horrors  which  we   have    experienced during the last two and a half  years."

These are typical illustrations of  thc line of argument.not unfrequcnlly  met with by thc workers for the  Fund. There seems to be an impression abroad that thc wives or  mothers of our soldiers should bc  worse off, rather than better, when  thc husbands arc away. Such a view  is taken, of course, only aftcr a superficial examination of the case. The  wife lias given hcr husband to thc  national cause, and she deserves wclij  at our hands. Thc Fund docs not  support hcr���������it merely creates a margin of'reasonable comfort. If a-soldier's wife here or there gives up her  daily toil, that is a very inadequate  reason for condemning a Fund which  possesses a host of social service  workers who arc teaching thousands  of women to bo industrious, thrifty,  good house-wives, wise mothers, and  filling litem with ambition to have  happier homes than they ever knew  before.  ��������� Canadian potatoes bring $6.75 per  bag/bf 180 pound:* in Havana, and :t  need not be- wondered at that exports from the Dominion are on a  large scale, amounting to about 90  per cent of thc total consumption.  the Channel tunnel scheme the government would support them.

The cleverly-promoted gold  brick proposition will readily  attract our money away from  the district while the sound  investment at our door goes  begging for support.  Fruir growers are facing  the question of selecting the  agency through which they  will market thoir produce this  season and. cannot afford to take chances on finding at the end of the  year that the pot of gold has vanished, and the rainbow with it.  The agency which has been serying you for the past five years  has been unsatisfactory but, no doubt, many of the Union's troubles  have been due to the serious condition of the fruit market during  these years and it seems certain that the Union has done much to  steady prices aud in many ways keep bad matters from becoming  worse. -  It would be a serious business error to find that in' choosing  some new plan of marketing you had overlooked the fact that the  agency at your door, which you have helped to build up, had a much  more sound selling plan than the one chosen, and was in a better  position financially to serve you.
