Capt. Forrester returned from Nelson * on Friday-last. He was in that  city when the Kootenay, volunteers  for the Second Contingent left for Victoria and states that opinion was almost unamimous that Creston's ten  volunteers created a better impression  than any of the other Kootenay units,  though Grand Forks showed up well.  ��������� The*fine old precept, **To do good  and distribute, forget not . . ��������� "." is  being worthily observed by Messrs.  Embree, Lindley, Lewis and other  members ef tno Creston Socialist Association who are quite active in forwarding supplies for relief of the needy  at Fernie, where the working class is  feeling the pinch of hard times very  severely in many instances,  company at a time when the empire is  calling for men and more men.  "In these strenuous times," to use a  "Militarism" phrase, we need a long  pull a strong pull and a pull altogether  and if "Militarism" has not sufficient  British manhood in his makeup to  help roll the old chariot- of empire  along* he should observe the gentle-  ly westers?, policy of "If you can't  boost, don't knock.  "Militarism" is one of those noxious  weeds of the life of Creston which are  best pleased when they can use the  wind of publicity to scatter the seed of  trouble broadcast over the land. The  country would be better without them  and the quickest way to bring them to  a miserable finish is to starve them to  death by refusing to print their misleading chatter.  In conclusion, permit me to express  the hope "that the departure of the.  Second Contingent, and the not-too-  lightly-to-be-considered German menace in the United States, along with  the many other advantages offering,  will attract to the Cresion company a  sufficient number of volunteers to enable the Very worthy work Capt.

There were twtj absentees on the  programme���������Rev. F. L. Carpenter  and Father John. The latter's  address went by default but the  chairman substituted for the latter,  delivering quite a rousing address  on Creston Valley's duty to the  empire in the present emergency.  Proceedings were opened with  "Red, White, and' Blue" by the  Creston Brass Band. It was thqir  first public appearance in months  and Bandmaster Goodwin and associates' effort's desgfrved the hand  they got. ~k  The school children provided two  choruses, "Rule Bfittania," with  little Miss 33er*ot_3^Carpenter-ak?  tired as Brittania in command, and  "O Canada," with little Miss Louise  Bevan gowned in the national colors'in charge. The latter number  was particularly well- rendered: in  fact the audience was pretty well,  agreed that for a children's chorus  of sixty voices it could-not be beat.  A grand inarch and nag di.ill.from  twenty young ladies was another  winning number. Gowned in white,  with alternate sashes of red, white  and blue, they created a decidedly  striking scene while executing the  single-file, two. abreast, four deep,  aii in a row and the corner to corner movements. They also rendered  "Soldiers of the King."  Twentyman's Orchestra���������Mrs.  Crompton, Mrs. Downs, Messrs.  Winters, Blinco, Dnndas, Twenty-  man���������dispensed several of the Allies  'national anthems and an assortment of popular airs that were good  for a triple encore. Miss Bessie  Hurry, who recited "One and AH"  and "Modern Diplomacy," would  be reciting yet if the audience oould  have had thoir way, so popular was  her. work.  Mr. and Mra. Roso furnished tlie  only duett, and their popularity does  not seem to wane. Thoir number,  Whoro E'or tho Banner Wavoo,"  and the encore, a catchy anti-Gorman sotting to "Tramp, Tramp,  Tramp, tho Boys are Marching,"  making, a great hit. Rev. G. W.  Blako in his talk hit right out from  tho shoulder in laying down his  vicwr. on what wan expected of  Creston in conncotibn with thoso  who havo gone to tho front, while  his other remarks, though brief,  wore equally pertinent.  Tho mi\lo qnartotto, Messrs. Bull,  Callandar, Kcddoll and Twontyman, favored with "The Minstrel  JJoy," and "ITairoBt is Sho," and  two humorous encores, tho latter  throe numbers being particularly  flno.  Ctx   -uuimo   iui a   iuong   way  Tipperary," sung by Rev. E. Bull,  was the headliner on the musical  menu, and the audience got in on  the chorus with considerable success. The two verses of a revised  version���������or a post script to the old  song���������were not overlooked by the  soloist, and they added to its popularity more than a little.  Frank CallandarV'TheVeteran's  Song" and the encore, ''Roaming in  the Gloaming," were great big favorites, and were given a faultless  rendering by Creston's favorite"  baritone.  Before the last number was announced the chairman called for  three cheers for the officers in command of the navy and land forces,  for the men on the firing line, and  the Creston volunteers to both contingents, which were given with  genuine British vigor���������and a tiger  with each of them.  God Save the King by the band  and audience brought the gathering  to a close shortly after 23k.  In connection with the concert a  whole lot of hard work was extremely  well done by Mrs. (Rev.) Carpenter,  Miss Waddy, Miss Munro, Mrs.  Crompton and Mrs. Mallandaine, in  preparing the children for the choruses and drills���������undoubtedly the three  best drawing cards on the programme.  To Mrs. P. B. Fowler (Fernie) and  Mrs. Crompton is due special mention  for their services as accompanistes���������  Mrs. Crompton having a particularly  heavy evening's work, playing for the  three children's numbers as well as in  the orchestra.  Revs.  Blake and Bull and Messrs.  Crompton and Chas. Moore, tlie .pro-  g^amrme'cdmiaitteer'well'Reserve the-  multitude of nice things said about  their work.  And first-class certificates are hereby  awarded Mrs, Cherrington, Rev. F.Car-  penter, Mrs. Jackson, Miss Gibtys and  Messrs. Cherrington R, M. Reid and  Dr. Henderson; when it comes to adorning a hall for a patriotic concert  they are thirty-third' degree artists;  _while publicity men, Messrs. Rodgers,  Hayes and Mallandaine���������well the $168  house is some evidence of their good  work in this good cause.  Wild Louis Dies  On Hunting Trip  Just as we go to press the  news reached town that "Wild  Louis," a well-known Creston  Indian, had been found dead  in the country between Yahk  and Ryan.    The wire read:  Yahk, B.C., Nov. 12  Coroner Mallandaine  Creston  Indian Wild Louis found  dead here, yesterday. Come  first train.       F. S. Ryckman.  This is all the information  available. Wild Louis left  here last week on a hunting  trip to Yahk.  Ho is known to havo been  quite a chronic sufferer from  stomach trouble, which may  have boon responsible for his  sudden demise.  Capt. Mallandaine immediately wired Dr. Green, Cranbrook, to take the inquest as  it is in tlio Cranbrook coroner's territory and ho oan got  down to Yahk earlior.

Sinclair  Smith with the Strathcona Horse in  thc First Contingent. He relates the  incidents of the ocean voyage splendidly���������read on and be convinced.  S.S. Bermudian,  At Sea, Oct. 14,1714.  I believe I wrote you last on Sept. 26  under the impression that we were  leaving Valcartier camp the following  day.   For reasons that I am not at  liberty to state we did not leave camp  till Sept. 29, but between the 26th and  29th our time was fully taken up.   All  our horses and equipment were dispatched and a general cleanup was  carried out.     The cleaning up process  was seen in its thoroughness as everything that could not be taken aloug  with the regiment was burned���������quantities of splendid lumber and utensils  of all kinds were thrown into the fire.  I saw a set of team hamessnearly new  and a wheelbarrow burned  up. and  doubtless there was much more of like  nature.    Several sick horses were shot  and all encumbrances were disposed of  so that on the day of our departure  from Valcartier Camp the space we  had occupied was as clean as it could  be,    I told you   before how very deserted the place looked and to make  matters worse the   weather   became  quite cold, there being several degrees  of frost in the morning.   However.the  camp and its aspects will not affect us  now and we will proceed'on the morning of Sept. 29 to the station, each man  carrying his kit and personal equipment.   I can assure you it was by no  means a dignified march as each man  was fully loaded and with a sword at  one's side to impede one's movements,  a kit bag on each, shoulder,'  besides  haversack,  greatcoat,  etc.,  it wals  a  wonderful march.    We did, not.get I  ab-'ard tr_WnJblGM*p?m:W!n������to troops  being bunched together and the consequent confusion, but when finally settled on the-train it did not take, long  to whirl us away to Quebec, 18 miles  away.   In Quebec, however, more delays occured, so that it was 7 p.m. before we were  finally  settled   on the  boat..  We were very'-gratified''with  our new quarters.and --the "'prospect bf  sleeping on a mattress once more than  compensated for the delays. ?  The boat we are on has been engaged in the West Indian trade and is just  built for the business, her .normal capacity being about 400 passengers, but  with all the cabins converted she is  now capable of carrying 1,000 but at  the latter figures it would have strained the ship's arrangements to the  limit.  The Strathcona Horse is the only  unit aboard, but it was intended to  ship with us some of the Engineers  and Dragoons,  in fact there wero a.  number of them on board when we  came, and at the lost* moment they  wore sent ashore again.    The reason  for sending the other units ashore waB  becauso they wore dissatisfied with the  accommodation, which I must say was  none too pleasant, consisting of bunks  fitted up in the ship's hold.   The place  was poorly ventilated, cold and dark,  was so considered by tho officers and  Is not usod.   We are fortunate in having tho ship to ourselves us it gives ub  room to drill and move about.

"It is the least sum that will carry  rue through," said Hugh; "if 1 cannot  raise   that  much  by  the  end  of the  here; it bores me as much as town  itself does. Besides, then Hugh cou!d  come with us. couldn't he?"      ~  "Certainly," said Mr. Hetherington,  amiably; "plenty of room in the car."  "Tlmnks very much," said Hugh,  not much surprised at this sudden suggestion, for he knew it was the Heth-  ertingtons* custom to alternate between their country and town houses  any moment the whim took them,  both houses being kept with a full establishment  and   reach   for  their ar-  week to meet my more pressing ob-1 riva, at mi__ute.  ligations.

And   there   is    another    negro  against Servia July 28. The part of  the Austrian demands which Servia  had felt unable to concede touched her  very existence as an independent state,'  and with regard to these matters' she  offered to submit them to The Hague  Tribunal. The fact that Austria, \yhile  receiving satisfaction on the other  points, had made the refusal of the  latter points ti casus belli raised suspicions of her ultimate intentions.  "The. real question." said the Russian  foreign minister, "was whether Austria was o crush Servia and to reduce her- to the status of a vassal, of  whether she was to leave Seryia a.  free and independent state."  It had been recognized from the first  that the case of Servia could not be  isolated. The aggression upon Servia  by Austria (with the previous consent  of Germany) was bound to involve  othor powersf  Tho German government did indeed  protest to Sir Edward Grey that "the  question at issue was one for settlement between Servia and Austria  alone;" but everybody else knew that  it could not be so, and the German  government, as we shall see presently,  seem to have known this also. -The  relations between Austria and Russia  uncle's car lying on its side.

To his intense relief she opened her eyes and looked  round.  "What has happened?" she asked:  "where are we?"  "There has been au accident," said  Hugh, and even as the last word passed his lips he knew it was not true.  Delia sat up, pushing away the  brandy flask with an impatient gesture.  "I don't want that stuff," she said.  "Wl.at have they been doing to,you?"  "Eh?" said Hugh? looking down at,  himself..  {To be Continued)  vvith some complacence,   "i invariably t banging about, too, generally at that  let all my people understand that that, j same  corner, where he seems to be  is the rule they are to be guided by." i always sitting and eating bread and  "Then I don't think L will trouble   cheese.

I could give  you .������2 a week to start with, as you  are   poor   Mary's   sister's   child."  "Jones is getting ������200. I believe, at  present," observed  Hugh.  "My dear lad," said Mr. Hetherington gravely, "you must not be unreasonable���������you cannot expect to start  at the rate of pay earned by a man  who has served ine well and faithfully for twenty years."  Mr. Hetherington rose as he spoke  and stood with his back to the fireplace, looking down severely yet not  unkindly at his seated nephew. Ho  was a short, rather stout, but powerfully-built man, with heavy features,  dark thick curly hair, a snub nose, and  thick lips. He wore a tliin, straggling  beard that he was very proud of for  some reasons, and his general appearance was that of a fairly prosperous  tradesman in a rather, small way of  business. Only his eyes, alert and  very bright, and his extremely big and  prominent chin, conveyed thc least  suggestion that hero was one of the  most daring and successful financiers  of thc day.  "I think I saw that car in coming  here." he remarked then; "in fact;  the bread and cheese eating negro  was the tramp I had my skirmish  with."  "Really," exclaimed Delia looking  at him sharply. "Strange!"  But Mr. Hetherington had been  thinking of something else.  "Did you take a return ticket,  Hugh?" he asked. "If you did, you  can give it me, if you are goinc bacfc  with us. Then my secretary can apply for a refund from the railway."  "Good gracious, papa!" cried Delia  impatiently.  "Why not, my dear?" said Tier father, mildly surprised; "there is no  need to make presents to the railway  company, is thero? It can go towards  the motor up-keep account."  "Yes. indeed," said Hugh, handing  over his return ticket.  "The secret of success," said Hetherington sententiously, "lies in never  neglecting trifles. Remember, that,  Hugh, and never neglect any opportunity that conies your way, however  small lt may seem."  "I won't!" said Hugh.

"Good thing for you If you had." returned Mr. ilpthorington with undisturbed good-humor, for he was in fact  as absolutely good-tempered as ho was  perfectly selfish and callous, though  his good temper was liable to bo  broken by flts of extreme rage.

The present world-wide  war started from the case of Servia,  but involved even from the start,  much larger issues. If only a dispute  between Servia and Austria-Hungary  had been in question, Britain, as Sir  Edward Grey ugpeatedly stated, would  have had no concern in the affair. But  since, as we shall see, this dispute  was bound to have ulterior consequences, it is necessary to understand  what the dispute was about.  Servia is a small, but very ancient,  kingdom in the Balkan peninsula. It  obtained considerable accesion of territory as the result of the recent-wars  in the Balkans, the war between the  Balkan States and Turkey, and then  the war .among the Balkan States  themselves. The Servian people are  akin, in race and religion, to the Slavs,  of which race Russia is the predominant power, and to which race also  many of the subjects of Austria-Hungary belong. On June 28, 1914, "the  crime at Serajevo" was committed,  namely, the murder of the heir-apparent to the throne of Austria-Hungary  and his consort iu the capital of Bosnia. That province, once a part of the  ancient Servian kingdom, had fallen  into the possession of the Turks; the  administration of it had been given to  Austria, by the Berlin Treaty after thc  Russo-Turklsh war, in 1878; and in  1008 Austria had annexed it. The Austrian government alleged (but has not  proved) that tho crime of Serajevo  was a culminating point In a "subversive movement" organized by the  Servian government "with the object  of detaching a part of tho territories  of Austria-Hungary from the Monarchy." On July 23 the Austrian government addressed an ultimatum to  Sorvla. Austria had boen "left a perfectly froo hand" by Germany. It waB  admitted by Sir Edward Grey that  "one naturally sympathized with many  of the requirements of tho ultimatum,"  and that "tho murder of tho Archduke and some of the clrcumstancos  respecting Servia quoted In tho.(Austrian) note aroused sympathy with  Austria." Russia also admitted that  "the demands wero roasonabln onough  in some cases." But there were two  features in tho Austrian ultimatum  which caused alarm and regret to  tlioso who desired lo iioo lho peace  of Europeti maintained. Tho first was  tho Inclusion of a tlme-llnilt, so short  (forty-eight hours) as to loavo diplomacy llttlo tlmo to avort war. Tho second wnH that what Austria demanded  within 48 hours' was not ii roply but  the reply dictated by Austria. "I had  nover boforo soon," said Sir Edward,  "ono Htnto nddroHB to another independent, state a document of so formidable a character." Tlie Gorman foreign  tiocrctary "admitted that tho Sorvlan  government could not swallow cortaln  of tho Austro-IlungarJnn domands."  Sir Edward Grey advised Servia to go  to tho furthest posrdblo point In mooting those domands, and similar advice  was jrlven to her by Franco and Rns-  slu. Tho Servian government ropllod,  within tho appolntod time, conceding  the greater part of tho Austrian do-  trian annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.   Aggression by Austria upon.  Servia was certain to be regarded by  Russia with the utmost alarm and indignation.    During the Balkan crisis  the     Russian foreign  minister  "had  made it clear .to the Austrian government that war with Russia must inevitably follow  an  Austrian  attack on  Servia.    It was clear that    Austrian  donv'-at-iou of Servia was as intolerable for Russia as the dependence of  the Netherlands on Germany would be  to Great Briain." "It must be obvious,"  said Sir Edward Grey in the house of  commons July 27, "to any person who  reflects  upon  the  situation  that the  moment the dispute ceases to be one  between Austria-Hungary and Servia  and becomes one in which    another  great power is involved, it can but end  in the greatest catastrophe that has  ever befallen the continent of Europe  at  one' blow;   no one  can  say what  would be the limit of the issues that  might be raised by such a conflict."  War between Russia and Austria, in a  cause wherein Germany had supported  the latter must involve Germany^ as  her ally, and France would be drawn  in as the ally of Russia. The action of  Austria and Germany in the case of  Servia was thus likely to challenge a  European war.    England and France  and Russia saw this.   Italy the ally of  Austria and  Germany,  saw    i. also.  When the general war was breaking  out,   the  Italian   government,     being  asked to state its intentions, replied:  "The war undertaken by Austria, and  the consequences which might result,  had, in the words of the German ambassador  himself,   an  aggressive   object.    Both were therefore in conflict  with the purely defensive charaqter of  the Triple Alliance, and in such circumstances Italy would remain neutral." "We were fully conscious," said  the German government itself, "that a  possible warlike procedure by Austria-  Hungary against Servia might bring  Russia upon tae scene and so involve  us in war in accordance'   with    our  duties as Allies." "As far Germany,"  said the German ambassador at Vienna to the British, "she knew very well  what she w^s about in backing up Austria-Hungary in this matter."  Foreseeing all this, Sir Edward  Grey, whose efforts during the recent  Balkan wars had won ror him the  title of the Peacemaker of Europe,  was early in the field with proposal-;  for averting war, and the British government "persisted to the very last  moment of the last hour in that great  and beneflcient but unhappily frustrated purpose" (Mr. Asquith).  Already on July 20, having received an inkling of what was on foot, Sir  Edward Grey spoke to the German  ambassador of the importance, if the  peace of Europe was to be preserved,  of Austria "keeping her demand within reasonable limits." The suggestion  was not adopted. The Gorman foreign  secretary "considered lt inadvisable  that the Austro-Hungarlan ���������, government, should be approached by the  German government on the matter"  (July 22).. Tho Austrian ultimatum,  which the same minister "admitted  that the. Servian government could  not swallow," was despatched on the  following day.  On July 2B, having heard from the  Austrian ambassador nn outline of  what tho Austrian note contained, Sir  Edward Grey pressed upon him, as  also upon tho Gorman government,  tho dosirabillty of porsuadlng the Austrian government to oxtond Its tlmo-  liinlt. Tho Russian government took  tho same lino. The Gorman ambassador was Instructed to "pass oa" Sir  Edward amy's suggestion, hut the  Gorman foreign oocrotary said that  "thoro would^bo delay and difficulty  In getting tlino-llmit extended," adding, "quite freely, thut the Austro-  Hungarlan government wished to give  tho Servians a looson and meant to  take military action."  .On July 24, havng rocelved tlio loxt  of tho Austrian ultimatum, and foreseeing that if Austria attacked Sorvla,  Russia would mobilize, Sir Edward  Grey proposod that "Germany, France,  Italy and Groat Britain, who'had not  dlreet. Interests In florvhi, should net  togothor l'otv.tho sake of poaco, trlmul-  taiieously in Vienna and St. Petersburg," "In tho ovent of tho relations  his plan might be efficacious, Sir Steward Grey on. July 26 formally- invited  the' governments of France,'Germany  and Italy to Instruct their severa' ambassadors to confer with him "for the  purpose of discovering an issue which  would::-. prevent complications." The  invitation was accepted by France and  Italy-. The; German foreign secretary  "could not fail in with the suggestion,  desirous thoiigh he was to co-operate  for the maintenance of peace*" (July  iii).      '���������.*������������������ ���������-':, '���������������������������������������������:-:��������� '?���������....���������������������������  Sir Edward Grey thereupon saw the  German ambassador (July 2?) and  promised "as long as Germany would  work to keep: the peace I would keep  closely in touch. I repeated vthat after  the Servian reply it was at Vienna that  some moderation must be urged." On.  the following day (July 28)- Austrian-  Hungary declared war on Servia.  As the German government was understood to have accepted-"ln principle," the idea of mediation by the  four powers between'Austria and Russia, it was proposed "that the German  secretary of state should suggest the  lines on which ibis principle should .  be applied." The Germangovernment  made no suggestion of the kind;  Sir Edward Grey's scheme had temporarily been in abeyance, as the Rus^  sian government had offered to discuss matters with" the Austrian government direct. This r offer was d e- .  clined by Austria (July 28).  Sir Edvtai'd Grey next appealed to  the German chancellor. "If he can  induce Austria to satisfy Russia and to  abstain from going so far as to come  into collision with her, we shall all  join In deep gratitude-to his excellency  for having saved the peace of Europe"  (July 29). The Italian government had _  .simultaneously appealed to Germany  in a like sense.     .      >  On that same day the German government  made certain proposals    to  Great Britain to which we shall come  presently and which the-prime minister afterwards characterised as "infamous."  But so persistent was   the  British government in pursuit of peace  that Sir Edward Grey in declining the  proposals used language of great restraint   (July  30),   and   accompanied  his refusal by yet another "most earnest" appeal to the German chancellor:  "The one way of maintaining the good  relations  between  England and  Germany is tliat they should continue te  work together to preserve the peace  of Europe; if we succeed in this object, the mutual relations of Germany  and England will, I believe, be ipso,  facto improved and strengthened. For.  that object his majesty's government  will work in that way with all sincerity and good-will.   And I will say this:  If "the peace of Europe can be preserved, and the present crisis safely  passed, my own endeavor will be to  promote some arrangement to which  Germany could be a party, by which  she could be assured that no aggressive or hostile policy would be pursued  against her or her allies    by  France, Russia and ourselves, jointly  or separately."  On the following day (July 31)  Sir  Edward Grey gave proof of his  sincerity and made a further effort for  peace.   "I said to German ambassador  this morning that if Germany could  get any reasonable proposal put forward which made It clear that Germany and Austria were striving to preserve European peace, and that Russia and France would be unreasonable  if they rejected it, I would support it  at St. Petersburg and Paris,    and go  the length of saying that if Russia and  France would not accept it his majes- -  ty's government would have nothing  more to do with the consequences." In  order not to leave this promise In the  region   of   generalities,   Sir   Edward  Grey threw out a particular suggestion.    "The  stumbling-block  hitherto  has been Austrian   mistrust   of Servian assurances, and Russian mistrust  of Austrian intentions with regard to  the independence and integrity of Sort  via."   If Germany would sound Vienna,      Sir   Edward   would   sound   St.  Petersburg whether it would be possible for the four disinterested powers to offer to Austria to undertake  to see that she obtained full satisfaction for her demands on Servia provided   they  did  not   impair  Servian  sovereignty and the integrity of Servian territory.   That Russia was ready  to  accept  such  a  solution  is   clear  from a peace-formula which her government     had  drawn   np  In   concert  with   Sir  Edward  Grey.    Evorylrhlnar  turned on Germany.   On that day Bhe  sent an ultimatum to Russia.  in tho oarly morning of August 1  (.'.ao a.m.) the King of England aud  his ministers mado a last attempt to  lltUlllill.

He tells you with great gusto-  of the deer he didn't kill, and includes  the incident iu the story he sends to  his  favorite  outdoor magazine.  Consider' the following paragraph, taken  from an account of a bear hunt:  "While putting the dogs into the  brush at the bottom of a gulch, something attracted my attention up the  mountain side on the rocks. I looked  up and beheld a fine little brown bear  /  troubles, and disfiguring skin diseases like eczema and salt rheum  show how impure the blood actually  is. No use trying a different remedy  for each disease, because they all  spring from the one cause���������bad  blood. To cure any of these troubles  you must get right down to the root  of the trouble in the blood, and that  is just what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  do. They make new, rich blood and  thus cure these diseases when common medicine fails. Mrs. John Jack-*  son, Woodstock, Ont., suffered from  both nervous troubles and a run  down condition 7 and experienced a  complete cure through the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. -She says: "I  was a sufferer for a number of years  from' neuralgia and a general -debility of the nerves and system. I had  tried several doctors and many medicines but to no avail until 1 began  Dr., Williams' Pink.Pills. At the time  I began the Pills Ihad grown so bad  that I could hardly be on my feet  and was forced to wear elastic bandages about the ankles? The pain I  suffered at times from the neuralgia  was terrible. T had almost given up  hope when I began the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. In the course  of a few weeks I felt an improvement, and I gladly continued the use  of the Pills until I was once more  quite well and able to attend to'all  my household duties."

Close to the Rancher  ttvey crashed through the thick undergrowth���������so thick that it was difficult  tov determine which was bear and  which was dog. The R.ancher got iu  several shots, but with no effect. Down  the mountain we ran; dogs and bear  in the lead, everybody yelling to encourage the dogs and in the hope of  scaring the bear up a tree. Breathless  and weary, we finally got to the dogs,  who were lying down under a tree?  'all in' and no bear in sight. His pace  had been too hot for our unhardened  pups and he had escaped." (Now hear,  the conclusion of the matter). "It was  the Rancher's first bear and he was  much disappointed not to get him.

United States Elections.  Our neighbors to the south had  their annual November ballot box  battle last week, and now that the  returns have all been tabulated the  outstanding feature of the balloting  would seem to be the collapse of  the Progressive party.  Apparently the insurgent Repub-  cans have very discreetly crawled  back into their old party band wagon, and likely the last has been  heard of tho RoosevoltBull Moosors  as an effective fighting force in  American national politics.  In view of this getting together  of tho two elements in tho opposition ranks it was to be expocted tho  going wonld not bo so easy for the  Democrats. Whether their losses  havo been more than normal hns  not yet boon asserted by tho political statisticians, but tho Wilson  party is still in control of Congress.  What fcho Democratic party huB  now to worry about is that with  fcho Progressiva, out of fcho way ifcis  certain that a normal Ropublioan  vote will bo polled in the next national election, and a normal Republican voto would spoil disaster  to Democratic hopes.

At 2p.m. the bugles again  call us to muster, when we are given  another two. hours drill, after which  we are allowed to indulge in sports, or  spend the time as we please, till 10:15*  p.m. when all lights are put out and  the day closes.  Oct. 2nd we are called to muster at  Reveille and find our ship at anchor  aud  upon' making  inquiries  of  the  ship's company find that we are lying  in Gaspe Basin (a splendid anchorage  in the Gulf  of St. Laurence)   and will  remain at this place until all the vessels carrying troops have come in.   So  far one can count twenty-eight troopships and four   Cruisers, but it is said,  there are   five or six   niore vessels to  come  in yet.   Our  day on   board   is  spent in   drill, with   sword and rifle,  varied with'-lectures, and I pause here  to remark; that the soldier of today is  given credit for possessing a measure  of intelligence.   As we are told that  our duty is to accumulate knowledge,  t?y asking and demanding information  of what   is going on in as   far as it  affects us.   The idea of the ordinary  soldier of some few years ago, asking  or demanding, -information from his  officers,   with    regard   to   what'was  transpiring about him, is too funny to  contemplate,   Duringthe afternoon of  the second,  we receive several visits  from Naval Officers, and there is much  signalling going on between the differ  ent ships in the fleet.   We also receive  a visit from the   Hon. Sam   Hughes,  who is   distributing a circular   letter  among  the' soldiers,   and   incidently  boosting himself.   All the vessels in  the fleet are? pointed a dull slate color,  so there are no distinctive markings  between .ships other . than structural  ones, it  makes   the   ships   look  very  dirty,   but I  suppose   the looks   are  secondary to safety. During the evening of this day we are told that General Von Kluck has surrendered, and  the news is received with mauy cheers  I wonder if it is true?   We finish this  day with a concert in the main dining  room.   On Oct, 3rd   we  leave Gaspe  Bay at 3:15 p.m. and steam out to sea.  The convoy comprises abont 31 Troopships and 4 Cruisers, the formation for  travelling,   being three  lines,  with a  distance of 3 miles between each line  and half  a mile -between   each  ship.

The  theory of tin- thing was alright but it  did not work out well in practice as  far as our ship was concerned, for the  vessel immediately behind got cur  rope and log mixed up with. its propeller and caused a general mixup.

Another  boat that sailed too close to uu was ordered to fall in boh ind and boar us  company, the reason being very obvious.

The use of rubber for internal  mending is a quite recent subject of  experiment. About five years ago Dr.  Sullivan, an American physician,  showed that the bileduet could be replaced with a rubber tube, and since  then sheet rubber has been successfully tried for such purposes as closing the aperture in a damaged blood  vessel and repairing tho torn abdominal wall of a hernia victim. The  rubber patches tend to become covered with living tissue after a few  months.

A.new type off warning device has been perfected, to bo  used under water, in the form of an  electric oscillator or vibrator. This Is  attached to the inner side of the vessel's hull and is capable of transmitting a note through tho water, a distance of more than 25 miles.  The sound waves are produced in  thc oscillator by the vibration of a  diaphragm, which. obtains its motion  from electrical impulses iuduced in a  cylinder of copper iuside a casing,  suspended in an electromagnet.

Sir Robert Edgecumbe, of Newquay,  has received a letter from? his son,  Lieutenant O. P. Edgecumbe, 1st Bat-  t-vlioa D.C.I..I., serving on the staff of  General Haking, in which ther following passages occur:  Farmers Should  Devote More Attention to Live Stock to Meet Increasing Demand  The outbreak of the war in Europe  and the consequent demand which is  naturally to be expected for increased  exports of meats, finds Canada in a  very much denuded condition as regards live stock.  As a result of the removal of the  American tariff on cattle a heavy export trade developed to the south. In  soihe districts in' Eastern Canada,  nearly everything has been shipped  out ofr the country, except dairy cows*  This export trade, together with many .  farmers selling their calves for veal,  can have but one result in Qanada,  viz.: a greater scarcity of meat than  at present exists, even in a normal  market.  The meat industry in Canada should  hot be allowed to dwindle���������father, the  production of hogs, sheep and cattle  oh CanadianYfarms should be greatly  increased. To obtain this increase  does not mean that farmers should devote their whole attention to live  stock. The majority of farmers wiii  admit that with very little extra effort and expense they could increase  by? several head the live stock on  their farms withoutin any way interfering with their present system of  farming;  From reports iro the commission of  conservation, present conditions indicate a world-wide scarcity of live  stock, with little likelihood of an  over-crowded market for. many years  to come. The opportunity for Canadian farmers Is, therefore, apparent. To  take advantage of this, farmers should  save their heifer'���������������������������; calves to produce  more cattle, while the others may. be  turned off, not as veal but as beef. .  Expert stockmen advise that there  are good times ahead for those raising sheep. The high price of mutton  and of wool and the comparative ease  with which a flock of sheep may bo  sustained upon land which Is otherwise unsuitable for agriculture, should  suggest a great increase in the number of sheep raised by Canadian farmers. .7 ���������'���������''."    ...  Increased production in hogs can be  brought about more quickly than in  any other class of live stock, and  consequently should receive immediate attention.        ?  Animal production on the farm is  desirable because it increases the fertility and crop-raising ability of the  soil. Good prices are.sure to be. obtained for any, surplus which farmers  will have to; sell onr account of the inevitable shortage' ?o������ supply; resulting  GERMAN SUBJECTS ARE GREATLY  DELUDED REGARDING THE WAR  KEPT IN IGNORANCE OF TRUE STATE OF AFFAIRS  Through the Censorship of the German Press as well as  Misrepresentation on the Part of German Officialdom, the People  of Germany are Kept in the Dark  loTKlLs*^ek or ?10 days we, ^om war c^i^s iivEurope These  have been fighting hard, and are now  for one day resting. Altogether during  five days and five nights I got six  horns' sleep, and so am rather weary.  However, bullets and a real enemy  are a wonderful stimulant, and I feel  as fit as anything? All our men are  somewhat fatigued, but are very keea  and full of fight.  My regiment has had a bad time,  and I Yam dreadfully afraid they have  been badly cut up, although I can as  yet get no details. They were caught  in a village by Germans in the houses,  who had managed to get there by  wearing our uniforms. ��������� Never again  shall I respect the Germans. Thoy  have no. code of honor, and there  have been several cases ot their wearing French and British uniforms,  which, is, of course, against the Geneva convention.  two conditions should be an incentive  to Canadian famaerstb increase their  live stock production. A little foresight now, with-modern methods of  feeding, will make increased production easily possible;���������-F.C.N.

"The Bravest of the Brave"  The Victoria Cross, the supremist  British reward for valor of whic__  many will doubtless be won during  the present, campaign, is the youngest of such decorations, only dating  back to the Crimean War in 1866. It  is the most valued possession in  many a home in Britain today. The  Austrian Cross, on the other hand, is  the oldest.  A similar reward in Germany Is the  Iron Cross, instituted by the Emperor  Frederick William III. of Prussia in  the year 1818. Russia gives as a decoration to Its heroic soldiers thc Cross  of St. George, which was founded by  the famous Empress Catherine II. in  the year 1769, and, while the-Victoria  Grots is of bronze, and the Iron Cross  as its name implies, of iron (which I.  edgod with sllvor), tho Russian Ord^r  is of gold, with a beautiful medallion  of St. George, killing tho dragon.  In Austria, again, tbo cross 13 cf  gold, and was instituted in tho year  3,757 by tho Empress Marie TheyeBa  soon after hor accession to the  Throno. It boars the samo inscription as the British Victoria Cross,  ours having ��������� in English "For Valor,"  and theirs in Latin tho word "For  tltudlnl."  The Order Qf the Legion of Honor,  which is the roward in Franco, was  InfltHuted by to great Napoleon, and  ho ���������decreed that every,soldier who  was decorated with that honor should  havo the additional distinction of being entitled to receive a military salute from officers, non-commissioned  o-flcoi*H, and prlvato soldiers.  . To protect the Birds  "To hunt birds without a. gun or  sling shot," is the ideal kept constantly before the members of the Fa_*m  Journal Liberty Bell Bird Club, who  sign a pledge to protect all song and  insectivorous birds. If it happens  that a newly enrolled member "ayats"  to the savage instinct of his primitive  forefathers when he sees a bird within shot and brings it fluttering to his  feet, his fellow members with literature, arguments and personal persuasion try to show him the evil of his  ways and bring him back into the  folds of the merciful. If he refuses to  reform and continues to violate his  pledge his name is at^last stricken  from the membership list and he . >  sent to Coventry by his comrades  pledged to save the birds, and through  them, save the crops "from being devoured by insect pests.  Sunday schools in many districts  are^-ftnding new ways to teach humane  principles to their pupils by having  them enroll as members of the Liberty  Bell Bird Club, are of tho Farm Journal, in Philadelphia, Pa. Its banner  and pledge are kept before the  classes, Its educational pamphlets and  wall cards are used to encourage the  children to study and protect tho  birds, and so lead them towards being .:lnder and more considerate of  each other.  Sabbath school classes ln differe.it  parts of tho country report most interesting "Bird Evenings" whore bird  songs, recitations, essays and iittlo  plays aro glvon. Sunday school superintendents aro calling the attontiou  of their teachers to this effective helper for creating a greater interest and  larger attondanco in Suuday school  classes. -  Thore is no cost ln joining the  club, no fees, no duos or assessments  of any kind. Any person who signs  the club pledge: .  "I doaivo to bocomo a member of  tho Llboriy Boll Bird Club of the  Farm Journal, and 1 promise to study  and protect all song and Insectivorous  birds and do what I can tor tho club,"  will receive a club badge button froo  of chavgo.  From time to time we read extracts  from the. German newspapers, as well  as wireless despatches from that country, showing how, the German people  are kept in complete ignorance of the  true condition of affairs regarding the  progress of the war.   It would appear  that even the educated and best informed of the more intelligent class cf  the  German  people  have,    been  deceived by the Kaiser, and the-military  party,  by misrepresentations  of  the  official  correspondence between    the  nations previous to the declaration of  war.   The German people are evidently led to believe that Great Britain  was responsible for the war, and that  since the commencement of hostilities  German arms  have been invariably  successful against the allied troops.  They even appear to have supreme  confidence in their navy, and entertain  the delusion that the British navy will  be vanquished by their    own    fleet.  Through the censorship of news by  the authorities  in Germany,  and  by  means    of    spreading    false reports  broadcast, they are doing everything  possible to prejudice  the opinion of  neutral  countries.    Letters  are  now  .being received in Canada mailed from  points in the United States, and no  doubt written by agents of Germany,  which contain statements bearing on  the cause and progress of the war,  calculated  to arouse an Anti-British  feeling.   These letters in most cases  are being sent to the proper authorities, so that this  plan  of campaign  may be exposed.  , As showing the manner in which the  German people are kept in the dark  as to the true conditions of affairs ih  respect to the war situation,, the following letter, written by a Berlin  newspaper owner to a friend in England, is illuminating:  "Never in my life I should have ventured    to   think  that  Great   Britain  should ever declare war on Germany,  the nation to which the British had  the closest affinity, there being thougr  ands and thousands of friendly and  amicable relations between the inhab-1  itantsof the two countries. The of? I  flcial publication, of the telegrams exchanged between the three sovereigns  has proved beyond any doubt that Germany up to the last moment has extended her sincere desire to preserve  the peace.- True, its situation between  two enemies who were at all times  jealous of her development has forced  her to keep-vigilant watch and to prepare for a fight should it be provoked  by her neighbors.   Now the war has  come, abrupty and unexpectedly and  since it has come without any intelligent reason, merely because the Russians believed the time ripe for th*  crushing   of their civilized neighbor,  the whole German nation has risen,  as one man, to fight for our independence and our standing in the rank of  the great powers.   There are no more  parties In our empire;    the    Social-  democrats have, just as well as the  Alsacians   and   Polish   in   our   boundaries, unanimously voted for the enormous sums deemed necessary, each  and every, one has taken up the arms,  and now; there are millions    of good  soidiers at our frontiers, eager to face  the enemy wherever he may appear.  The Russians, whose millions of soldiers were expected to flood over pur*  eastern provinces, have cowardly fied  wherever they met only a handful of  German ana Austrian soldiers, and it  is safe to predict that our troops will  continue to chase them, asfitr as7 wa  choose,; and. whatever therri exists of  the Russian fleet will soon be doomed,  or, if considered fit for ther purpose,  ���������*��������� try the  German    flag.    And    the  French?   We have permitted them to  enter into Alsace, just as we allowed  the Russians to pass over our frontier  for a couple of miles���������for the simple  reason  that the fact be established  that they, not the Germans, were the  aggressors in rtj.3 disastrous interna*  tional war.   But in the meantime, we  have proven that German valiance and  courage is the'same as 1870, and the  Belgians, who have been badly advised that their country should be neutralized towards Germany, but open to   -  British and French manoeuvres, have  been shamefully desertc" by their advisers and are now the first to feel the  weight of German strategy. Liege, tho  strongest fortress built byJPrench engineers, ?has been conquered by ordinary   field troops   at -one assault, its  c. .-orig forts have been reduced to cinders by our heavy guns, Brussels has  been occupied and soon the last corner  of Belgium  will  be  in  German  possession, after which our invasion  into ?France will be taken    up with  force with which even the combined  French   and   Brtish   armies     cannot  rival.  "It is a pity that it has come so far,  and the British people should, er*. it ia  too.late, consider what is at stake. As  far as we hear, British newspapers  persistently belittle the German successes and continue? to circulate newa  of German defeats which have hever  happened so far? and thus they betray  their readers, delude them into tha  dangerous idea that Great Britain  were invincible because of its splendid  isolation at sea. Still, the vast British fleet has, as far as we know, up  to. this hour not dared to approach our  coast, but prefers to do the safe busi-  ehss of piracy. I. do not believe that  our navy will follow this policy of  apparent cowardness, but will beforo  long visit the British coast and hunt  the British vessels, and the result will  be that the fiction of the British  navy's supremacy will go to the dogs.  "If I knew that this letter safely'  reached ydur hands, I will gladly continue to tell you what news our ?pap-  ers publish of the war, and should  be much pleased if you would be kind  enough to reciprocate."

Canning Factories Will Emplcy Mora  Canadian Help  Industrial conditions ln Canada at  this time will result in.the employment of many more Canadians than  usual in the canning factories ofthe  Dominion.   In previous seasons many  canning factories, finding difficulty la  obtaining sufficient local help, sccuiv  ed assistance from the larger labor  market of the United States, It is estimated that soveral   thousand   omployees of Canadian canning factories  during previous seasons were not permanent residents of this country., Ia  view of the unemployment in some Industries at this timo tho canning factories will be able to secure in Canada  most, If not all, tho help they require  this season.    Thus many Canadian*  who would otherwise bo out of employment will havo the work in the canning factories that in previous years  : was given to parties who wero real-  1 dent ln Canada only during the can-  ' nlng soason.   Tho policy of the loading canning companies has  been to  employ local holp as far as pobb!1.1o.  Another condition that will tond to  inereaso the number of Canadian!' employed ln the canning industry in this  country ls tho curtailment of imports  of canned vogotablon from Franco and  Belgium.
