Compared with this date lust your  raspberry shipping at this point is almost as heavy as in 1010, but with no  prospect of -moisture and such excessive heat it looks as if Eviekson  would do well to send half. the  quantity of this frijitthat w*u������ handled  a year ago.

A word of commendation is due  Mabel Huscroft. She was successful  at the Entrance in 1915, took the Preliminary High School lost year, and  this term completes her Advanced  High School Course at the uge of 15  years. Three exams, of this sort in  a row deserves special mention in  Creston Valley-those times.  '      B.y:.\W,:.

The Union has made up its pool for  the berries shipped the first week in  July and on the almost 1200 crates  shipped from Ci'eston the-grower has  been paid $2.75 per crate.

M*P.jP. and Board  Of Trade Confer  Miioo Stdinff  Berry shipments from hero are beginning to slump considerably nnd it  is possible the train stop may be cut  out in a fow days. Yesterday's total  was 31 crates, mostly raspberries.  Tho exceptionally dry season is  giving this unction more than ordinary  attention in tho way of tires. Passing  C.P.R. trains set them ont nt the Constable ranch on Sunday and at Jas.  Compton's on Monday night Fortunately they were got under control  before any headway was gained.  R. Stewart had word from his son,  Ronald, who went overseas ��������� with a  forestry draft from Revolatoko early  in the month, that thoy got acroBR  safely and a moot enjoyablo ' trip all  through. He expects to be in England  but a couple of weeks beforo going on  to France to work.  M. B. Long of Douglas Villa, who  went to Alberta a few weeks ago, has  sold one of his properties at Pincher  Oreek., Ho intends investing tho pitr������  ccodii iii a oar of cattle whioh ho will  winter in Alborta. He reports the  Pinoher Creek section dry and   hot.  Another wood ..awing outfit hau  made Uh appearance here.

During his visit here this week John  Keen, M.P.P., met the Creston Board  of Trade ih session at the boardrooms  on Wednesday night, there being a  fine turnout of members to discuss  matters that had been brought;to his  attention during the time the house  was in session.  The foremost of these was, of course,  the inactivity in the matter of rbnd  improvements in the Valley, which  was very frankly discussed from all  angles. Mr. Keen was not backward  in admitting that the new system was  taking longer to inaugurate than the  ministers had anticipated, and that  due to the government's inability to  secure necessary finance ������ven much  needed repair work has hod to await  better financial conditions. However,  ho assured that thOHe troubles were  now about at an end. The public  works department was now apportion-  ������....     ..������  ��������� ������..'    .-.

He felt euro that  thia end of tlio "tiding would bo qnila  generously treated, as he was to some  extent getting funds from the department of mines to tako caro of tho  rood work fn those parts of Kaslo  riding that are .necessarily mining  sections and should be looked after by  that department. On tho roads  qucct.'.**v.i< hr, v:r.." hr.pr.ftil a? haying ll,.-.  government put a rock crusher in this  part and from year to year spend part  of the road money In building permanent roads on the main travelled  highways.

' f,  '" The season for Bing cherries is also,  practically at an end. There has been  a good demand throughout for these,  although the price has slumped of.  late, Okanagan points quoting them  as low as ������1.59 for some days back.  Sour cherries are coming along but  the outlook for these is not blight,  there being altogether too many for  the market to assimiliate even at fair  prices.  New potatoes are also moving, but  the demand is. ahead' of the supply.  The Chinese are supplying the local  demand with a very good sample of  spud for this early in a rather dry  season, while Staples Bros, have taken  up about $100 worth of them from less  than half an acre, and those not taken  locally have gone to the C.P.R. lake  steamers. Cabbage is selling well,  also, there being quite a good market  for about a ton a week for this  commodity.  W. G. McPhersnh of Nelson, the  goyernment engineer, who is in com-P  plete charge of all public works in  West Kootenay, was a visitor here on  Wednesday and Thursday, along with  John Keen, M.P.P., and during his  stay had very few idle, daylight  moments, being on the go, except at'  meal times, practically the time of his  entire-stay.  His first visit was to the Kootenay  Riy erf erry j into which question he  went quite thoroughly with those  most interested, ahd The Rhvibw is-  credibly: informed that a thorough "  survey of the river to determine the  currents, eddies, banks, the cost of  moving the scow and cutting the new  approaches will be made before snow  flies and if it is decided-tb proceed with  the work the necessary money will  be voted at the session of the house  next winter.  He had the same careful look into  the bridges at Canyon City. The existing structures will receive the  necessary repairs forthwith. The  high- level bridge, which was swept  put oyer a year ago,-, is vto '-'be'rebuilt  further up. the. stream as *������ood a������  funds are available, which will not be  this year, of course, as there are not/  sufficient funds to do this work as  well as the very necessary repairs.  Thursday morning Mr. McPherson  was over the roads towards the Idaho  line, and was also* at Kitchener to  investigate the work needed on the  road between there and Erickson to  put in shape for comfortable vehicular  traffic of all kinds. Incidentally he  was looking into the location of the  Slater mill there which is said to  obstruct a public rood.  Still  y&&sfi������$$������������-  Canyon City  Emmett Messenger arrived from  Wallace, Idaho, the early part of the  week, on a visit to his father, who is  in charge of the blacksmith shop here.

J. Johnson went to Nelson on Wednesday for a couple of days; H. Davis  is also a. visitor in that city this week.  Paul Off ner left on Friday for Biairmore, Alta., Where he expects to  spend some time.  Mr. Penson left here en Sunday for  Hanbury, Alta.  Creston callers this week included  Mrs. F. Williams, Mrs. F. J. May, Edward Butterfield, H. Rosendale, Mrs.  W. J. Cooper, Joe Wigen.  The latest word from Sergt. H. A.  Bathie is that he is in Bramshott  Camp, England, taking a course in  physcial training and bayonet fighting, and if succesf ul in his examinations he will be assigned to the duty  of instructing in those branches.  The members ;of the Sunday School  are eagerly looking forward to Satur*  day when their teacher, "Mrs. F.  Williams, has promised them a  picnic. The exact spot has not yet  been decided on but will -most likely  bo somewhere along the lake.  The dancing enthusiasts have boen  busy this week fixing MP the dance  hall in readiness for Saturday night  whon another of the popular Wynndel  hopB is scheduled to come off.

Government Helps Dairying i
Dairying  Industry   of   Saskatchewan
Put on a Firmer Basis i
Until   thc     provincial     government
took hold,  the  dairying  industry    of1
Saskatchewan declined.    In  1906, the.
butter output of the province had fallen   to   127,000  pounds,     whereas'   in
1897 it had been 346,000 pounds. With
the  inauguration cjf     a     government
dairy  branch, and  the institution   of
the.   co-operative creamery,     an     entirely   different   slate   of  affairs    was
brought  about.      Thc  dairy    branch
now operates seventeen co-operatively owned creameries, located at central points on the different railways.
Express   charges oij  the   cream    arc
paid at the creamery, so that the farmer at a distance suffers nothing from
the  fact  that the' creamery is ttot at
his   own   door.      The   dairy     branch
markets  the  product, and   distributes
thc   total   net     profits   co-operatively
twice  a  month,  Incoming   cream     is
classified  and   paid   for    accordingly,
and   outgoing butter  is  graded    also
according  lo   quality.     Instruction in
dairying  has   been   given   to   farmers
by thc operation of travelling    dairy-
instruction  cars, as  Avell  as  throughout the year at the creameries and by
tiavclling   instructors.     The   progress
of the dairying industry will bc seen
when  it is stated that in   1916   there
were   17   creameries,   with   7,205   farmers sending cream, and the production   was  2,538,061   pounds   of butter,
or more than 15 times as much as in
Extra Profit from
Selected Cows
Cows  of Good Dairy    Type
Cost of Extra Feed
One remarkably satisfactory re��
suit of keeping simple daily records
yields of milk and cost of feed, is the
knowledge gained that cows of good
dairy type do repay the cost of extra feed.
One example may be given. Not
far from St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, one
hundred cows produced 104,854
pounds of milk ,4-nore during 1916
than one hundred did in 1915. The
1915 records showed that ten were
not paying so they were beefed, and
again in 1916 eleven were sent to the
block, being replaced by better milkers. Better feeding contributed
largely to the above noted big increase in mild yield; more corn was
fed, more clover and a little higher
meal ration.
The value of the extra feed . was
$605; this produced more milk to the
value of $1,677.66, so tliat the extra
clear return was $1,072.66, and the
cows.were in much better condition.
Dairy records help to select good
cows and to ensure larger profit.

Conserve Young Cattle  Slaughter of Calves Results in Great  Loss in Meat Production  Wholesale and unnecessary destruction of calves through the country, has influenced W.W. Fraser, recently appointed Live Slock Commissioner for Manitoba, to warn farmers to conserve thc-r young cattle.  He urges . tlicm against thoughtless  slaughter of calves, and slates that  thousands arc destroyed annualy,  with consequent loss in meat production and dairy supplies.  Could the public be brought to realize the astounding loss annually as  a result of this destruction of calves,  it would startle the most indifferent,  Mr. Fraser states. The possibilities  of a shortage of all food supplies  which is causing already almost famine prices, is alarnring.  The Department of Agriculture  working in conjunction with Mr.  Fraser, is taking steps to protect calves from slaughter, and-more especially among the dairies near the city,  where thousands of calves have been  sold to butchers or destroyed as soon  as they were born. An arrangement  is being made between dairymen and  farmers whereby fanners can secure  calves -by paying a nominal charge  price, and similar to that paid by  butchers, thus preserving a .calf that  would be so.ld for $61 to one which  when two and a half years old would  be. worth form $100 to $175.   .  Should co-operation of all persons  concerned be established, the present  waste would be turned into a food  production increase, with enormous  financial benefit to the country, according to Mr. Fraser.

Aerial Progress  Remarkable Development in Aircraft  in the Past Nine Years  Thc great progress made in the development of aircraft in the last nine  years was the subject of a recent lecture in London. In 1908 thc Wright  brothers flew at a rate of 35 mites arM  hour, while at the end of last year  a speed of 142 miles an hour was attained by a Sopwith monoplane. The  farthest distance flown bv vhc  Wrights in 1908 was 71-2 miles; the  other day a Frenchman came near  flying'from Verdun to Russia (.984  miles). The Wrights in 1908 reached  an altitude of 500 feet;- both a  Frenchman aud an Englishman had  recently ascended to over 25,000 feet.  The rate of ascent in 1909 by a  Frenchman was 300 feet in 3 "i minutes  an .aviator in England recently ascended 10,000 feet in 15 minutes, thc  first 5,000 in live minutes, which was'  equal to thc ascent of the fastest lift.

Lees   in  Oreston   Methodist Church, Sunday, July 1st, 1917.  They   were  men of true  statesmanlike vision aud foresight, whom  we now  honor  as the  Fathers of  Confederation,    who    nobly   sunk  provincial   and   racial  prejudices,  local and selfish interests that they  might bind the British   possessions  of this land into a great self-governing   Commonwealth,    who    gave  birth to this the  greatest daughter  of the  greatest  Empire  on whioh  the   sun   ever   shone.    May   God  give   to   our   statesmen of   today  that  same   vision   and   insight  to  happily   deal  with   and  solve the  problems of this day when fanaticism   and   injudicionsuess     are   in  danger  of   undoing  the   work the  fathers did, because of. and at   the  same time when   we  appropriately  celebrate our Dominion   Jubilee by  our entire and nationwide   participation in the struggle   to   make a  commonwealth of all   the   nations  and  make  all  the   people   of the  earth free to pursue   their  highest  development     for     the      greatest  benefit of the race at large.  But it is doubtful if   when those  fathers  united   Upper  and Lower  1,300,000 pupils,  and an expenditure of ^56,000,000 a year.  Today this part of the Empire  which theKaiser and his diplomats  thought eager to break from the  Empire, and some people thought  not long ago eager for annexation  with the people to the south of us,  has promised to the cause of the  Empire and the Allies an army  almost double that of the original  British standing army, has for  long been spending a million a day  for war purposes, manufactured  and sent across the seas over half a  billion dollars of munitions.  This is progress which can be  detailed in statistics, but those  very statistics are only one form of  expression of progress and success  which are not to be expressed in  figures; of social intellectual, moral  and spiritual development and  qualities in the life of this land and  people.  In that 50 years we have not  only made great strides in territory  and population, in trade and  education, but what is of far  greater importance and significance, we have become a nation in  ourselves instead of merely a British colony; not that there is any  disgrace iu the latter, far from it,  nor that we have thrown off our  allegiance to the British Empire,  but that we have become a Canadian people, the Canadian nation  with a distinct national spirit and  consciousness, with life, methods,  aims, ideals, education, literature;  yes, and even religion which is  neither English, French, nor  American but Canadian, distinctively so, and growing   more  so every  These  n  m./  Something inexpensive, but which "touches the  spot/ refreshes, and thereby lightens the day's work  no matter to what heights the mercury ascends, any  of the following lines should fill the bill to a nicety :  Morton's Raspberry Vinegar  Ideal Lemon Fruit Juice  Street's Grape Fruit Juice  Welch's Grape Juice  Jameson's Lemonade Crystals  All guaranteed made from the choicest raw materials.

The   narrow   strip  of territory  along   the   shores   of   the   Lower  Lakes and the St. Lawrence which  formed the four  provinces of 1867  has become the  mighty  Dominion  of 1917   stretching from   Atlantic  to Pacific, from the United  States  almost to the pole, half a continent.  The   540,000    square     miles   and  population of 3,600,000 of 50 years  ago have  become  the  3\   million  square   miles and  the    .almost   8  million people of today.    By   hundreds of thousands   a   year   people  from all over the world avc flocking  to our land;  even   the U.S.   in its  palmiest days  of  immigration has  been   surpassed  in   proportion   to  population by the immigration into  this land.  The land of the canoe and the  lied River cart, of great distances  i-'.td iiistsraaomrstable diflionhieu of  travel is networked by three great  transcontinental railways, electric  lines and great steamship services,  telegraph, telephone, wireless ,ir.d  postal systems, hardly excelled by  those of the centuries-old lands.  The slightly ovor 100,000,000  dollars worth of trade of 50 years  ago has l>eoome almost $2,000,000,-  000 a year. 2,000,000 aores and  15,000,000 bushels of wheat havo  increased to 15,000,000 acres and  220.000.000 bushels.

While another  very   potent  factor has been   the  opening up of our own'great western land, without  the development  of which  Canada  of  today would  not be what she  is  nor  have progressed as she has.  And   not   less     real   than   our  material   development    has    been  that   along    more    spiritual   and  moral Hues.    We head the nations  of the world   in   the  reform of the  drink evil.    We are moving rapidly  towards  the   nationwide bestowal  of equal   rights  for   woman.    The  real  democratic  spirit  prevails as  much   as in the  most democratic  countries in   the  world not excepting even our friends to   the  south  whose democratic president   is now  virtually   their  dictator.    We are  moving rapidly   along  the path of  the  principle of   the   country,   its  resources and wealth for tlic people  of the  country;  social  service and  reform is as prominent and successful as anything else  in   the world  and  becoming more  aud more the  interest of the people.    Even the  sanctity   of   the Sabbath   in   this  young hustling,  bustling nation is  more carefully preserved than with  the  older continental peoples and  the great modern nation aoross the  line; the tone of our morality, tho  real   and   practical   spirit   of our  religous   life  not  to  be surpassed  anywhere.  Wo have a record of growth and  development as a nation in our  short history unexcelled by any of  the younger nations of tho world  and we need take second place to  none in that respect. Today wo  do woll to celebrate onr National  Jubilee and thank God for thc  record for the past half century of  our national existence.  Hut while we have much a splendid record do not let un for one  moment think that our country is  ixu'feet. If wo are in any such  danp-t'ii* it. will not bo long before  we are disillusioned; oithor wo  shall noon come straight up against  Our national life is not all it  should be, it is not by any means  perfect or incapable of improvement; the person is a jingoist and  not a patriot who sets this country  and people of ours up as being  more perfect than all the rest of  the natiors of the earth: nay, more,  he is a fook ISTo nation or people  has rerched perfection, reached its  final stage of development; no  person, not even the most conceited  person in this town, is perfect; and  the nation is only made up of  individuals.  But while we are far from the  acme of perfection as a people and  a country we are not the woe-be-  gone, vice stricken, socially corrupt morally, degenerated, worm-  eaten nation that some of the  down-at-the-mouth, disgruntled,  wailing crowd would have us believe, and if some of these people  would but stop wailing and gnashing, lift their eyes from the muck-  heap and see the golden possibilities  before us, and make themselves in-  nations  of  the earth   only  as they lea!*!**  to potencies that would help us  realise those possibilities, instead  of being such useless brakes on the  wheels of progress onr country  would today be better and purer  and even a better place to live in  than it is, whioh is saying not a  little.  The  move forward ������i������>wly  by experience. Even tho oldest  nations who have centuries of experience to guide them oan not bo  called by any means perfeot, nor  lifo in them any more liveable than  in our own. While on the other  hand the very rapidity of our  growth and expansion, tho entirely  now conditions under whioh lifo is  lived and nationhood developed  mako larger and more acute the  problems we have to face und  dimonltieH with which wo havo to  contend.  Even iu one eonrce of our rapid  development, our tremendous  immigration, wo havo one of our  biggest problems, growing more  acute aH the days go by, a problem  from whioh we havo already  mifteroU not a llttlo; otana to suitor  more rmlwii in the near future it in.  taokled and solved. With hundreds of thousands  of   people from  every   nation   and all  conceivable  conditions of life, a  large  percentage   from  conditions  where   they  have   been    crushed   and   ground  down,   coming to  a  small population of less   than   8  millions  in  a  new and undeveloped land which is  only beginning to form itself into a  nation experimenting more or less  at legislation and  self-government,  this forms a big problem and may  easily, if it has not already done, so,  develop   intb   a     great   evil   and  menace.    They    flood    the   labor  markets,   flock ; t<*o :!J|foe^i^^  create stums, form little settlements  of  their  own,   each   one   a   little  Russia. Austria,   Galicia or   whatever it may   be,  such  settlements  always making  their  assimilation  into the  life  of  the  nation  more  difficult.    Usually   poor   and   uneducated they are the mark for the  shark and speculator,  tool  for the  capitalist and political crook, while  in  their new   life   free   from   the  restraints of the old bondage and  slavery  they  are apt  to abuse to  their own destruction and the peril  of   our   land    their    new    found  freedom.  We have already, growing more  acute every year, our problem of  the rural and urban population;  I the depopulation of the country  communities and consequent loss  to the agricultural life of the  country whieh has always been  recognised as the most valuable  asset of a nation's life; and on tho  other hand the flocking to the  cities where there is more society  and the streets are still thought to  be paved with gold, and hence  the great problems of the cities,  slums, unemployment, and so on.  Money still lint* power, even in theso  days of democracy and social agitation.  A large percentage of men and  women are still sufficiently weak to bo  8U8ceptihlo to tho power of wealth,  weak enough to pander to tho ones  who haye It, many weak enough to  bo bought by it and among thorn somo  of thouo who most decry wealth and  aro moot virulent in their denunciation of graft and corruption.

Consequently we  have graft and corruption, not only-  secret, but most flagrant, impudent  and daring graft and com uption.

But-that same evil is n<i less prevalent among those who are not. of  the wealthy crowd, only we giye it  another name and call; it patronage,  but the principle is the same and  patronage is just as.?rptten and vicious  as the corruption and graft in high  places; yet how many are there even  in our own community wht are ready  to accept a position at the hands of a  part*yVwlnehTJ?---m^^  whether it be a government position  or outsiie the sphere of politics, not  because they have the best ability and  experience with which to till that  position but because it carries .-good  pay, is an easy job and they have  enough friends in power to secure it.

So much for the past and the present, what of the future? With, such  a record for the first half century of  our national existence; with our  deyelppiqg national . consciousness  arid spirit; with untold resources in  our land, our forests, onr mountains,  our waters and tmr. peoples; with the  democraticspirit and the awakening  social eoriseierifce and new social  visions possessing our people.; who can  tell :what^out- .futtire will be? The  most visionary cannot do it justice.  We could-yet become the foremost  and best nation on earth. Why not ?  That-should be the heritage we hand  down to tbe generations of the future  and it may be; let us resolve as a  people that it shall be.  How is it to he done? That is the  qiiestion" which is rightly asked. Here  we haye only time for general  principles.  In the first place we need to more'  Resolutely   and Consciously  Develop  our National Consciousness; develop  our nationality,   In   every new country there is the danger of the new  people becoming a conglomerate mass  of mongrels instead of developing a  new species, anew type, anew people  and   nation    with   its   own  distinct  characteristics.     Some     look    with  askance at the   conglomerate population    we    are    accumulating.     That  cosmoplitan population  may  become  out* doom or the source of our greatest  glory according as we work with it.  The great British   people of today are  hot great because thorough-bred from  the original Britons, but great because  of   the different traits   of character  contributed by the Celt,  the   Briton,  the Saxon, the Dane and Norman, the  Flemish and others who peiiod.ically  settled those little islands in the Eastern   Atlantic,  now the heart of the  British Emph-eV-' There,' t������)o, may be  the source of our greatness,   in. the  blending, of  the.* different  types  of  peoples .thiit come^to pnr.shores not  into a uiohgrei"^mixture but a  hew  people. ''".'"  We want no English, French,  Scotch, American, Scandinavian,  Doukhobour or German in this land.  Nor do we _warit Fr**nch-Ganadian,  English Canadian, . Scotch-Canadian  and the rest of the hyphenates. We  welcome all. but we know only two  classes, Canadians and Aliens, when  they settle here and if they will not be  the-first they must be the latter. We  may well learn a lesson therefrom  our Southern neighbors. We may  smile at the great zeal they have for  their flag, but we would do well to  follow them more in that respect, not  that flag-waving aud saluting make  up patriotism; far from it, God forbid  that we develop such a hollow  patriotism. But Old Glory stands for  more than show, it stands for U.S.A.  and all that is best and glorious in  that great nation's life and history.  They do right to honor the flag and  make their children salute it, provided they are taught what that action  means. Our own flag stands for  things just as great and glorious I  hope the time will come, and come  soon, when the same practice will bo  compulsory in every school in the  Dominion and we shall inculcate moro  real patriotism, that is, more real  public spirit, Canadian spirit, into the  S minds and lives of the children even  if the sohool hour has to be extended  I to do it, so incuicate it that ihey wiii  be ready to light any person who  tramples on the honor of thoir country, whether by bolittlng it, revolutionary propaganda, graft, corruption,  speculation, crime or anything else.  We need in   the    next  place  the  Might Typo of  Men  and   Women in  our Legislative Positions and Publie  Offices.   Men who are thero not because thoy have money ;or have always boon   there;  not  because  thoy  have Influonce  in the party or belong  to a cortaln party; but mon and wo  men who have tho right national and  civic mouitj. mutt who havo ability aud  character and whoso   chief intercut is  not personal but national; not In lining  their pockets but in the public, national welfare.     I know that iu a general  swooping principle,   hut  it lo one.of  those principles that the public have  not yet takon aoriously, and until we  do take It seriously and act on It wo  may growl nu much as wo  like about  thinga being wrong but   !t ivlll   t.������.!tr  mom than growling to right" tbom.  Tito ne*t HUflgewtlon wovhl be a right  aim for our haiioriaV iife���������the life ox  the people. -A high national ideal--  nothing short of the Greatest Good of  of the, Whole People. Not the best  interests of the speculator, or the capitalist, or the party ; not of the British, or French, or any other element,  not e���������en the special interest of you or  I.to the detriment of the other fellow,  but such a government, such organi-  zation and management, such national life that each element, each party,  each individual will be able to secure  the highest success and greatest freedom consistentwiththe good,of the  rest and that we shall all be united together ih one great party, one all-im-,  portant element, one. great society,the  Canadian.  To secure these things the fundamental requirement is that Eyery In-  diyidnal man and woman in this land  should develop a Greater1 Personal Interest in the Affairs of this Community, Province and Country; should giye  himself to those affairs,, individual inr  terest. .Hyely. interst, in citizenship,  public and national life. That is the  individual's plainest duty for these are  his affairs and interests, and he cannot  get away from them. "When you get  that increased individual interest then  you begin to get the light national  aiui and ideal, and the reason we are  today getting nearer to the right  ideal is because the people are taking  interest.

At thc time the retort  ���������was-made the proper answer was,  "Har, bar!." Now, there is another  answer..'- Several authorities are predicting a war that will last for two  or'"three., years more. The latest- of.  them is Lord_ Northciiffe, who has  been astonishingly correct as regards tiie development of the war in  many phases. He thinks the"war will  continue for some time yet. In "an  article he contributes for the New  York Tribune he makes a comparison  with the American Civil War. Ho  says that in that conflict both sides  \yere unready and that it continued  for four years. At the outset it had  been expected by some optimists - lo  last ..for six weeks.' He argues that  ,the measure of preparedness is to be  considered when the probable length  of. thc war is being discussed. In  other words, if thc unprepared South  against tremendous odds, could last  four, years, how long cau Germany  hold out, having prepared for forty  years?  When Lord Northciiffe writes for  American readers a reasonable discount is necessary. He loves American readers, which is natural for any  writer. He also wants American readers to love him, and in the process  he will not spare his own countrymen. Ou the whole, Lord Northciiffe'  is doing a good work in the United  States through* the medium of the  papers which carry his opinions to  the nation. Two years ago his papers Were thrown out of clubs and  _ hotels; hc was burned in effigy, and  was for a few -weeks competitor of  Hindenburg for thc prize of the best-  hated man in England. Events proved that his criticism of the British  administration was right. His papers  \\ ere restored to pdpularity. Soon it  became apparent that his criticism  had been well-founded. Suggestions  he had made were adopted. So, if  today or tomorrow lie seems to bc  unduly fond-of American methods, wc  may only hope that if these methods  fail, he will not hesitate to speak as  frankly to the American public as he  did to the British public.  He looks for a long war. Hc says  lhat the three great events of the war  to date have been the wonderful defence put up by France, the entrance  of five British nations into the war  on the side of England���������Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the minor  colonics and India���������and the. slow  arousing of the United States and its  entry into thc fray. Hc says in reference to the submarine campaign,  that iu England they do not take' it  6eiiously enough, and that in the  United States they take it too seriously. He contends that the submarine cannot win the war. Hc compares it with the thrust upon  Calais  or for representation by population,  or- for the greatest good to the greatest number, or for some other noble  abstraction. Wc fight well for them.  Do we fight as we would fight for  cur lives? That is how Germany is  fighting, and we have to fight the way  Germany is fighting before we can  beat Germany!-���������Toronto Mail and  Empire.

Lord Northciiffe says that thc war  is just one of a series of wars. The  submarine campaign he considers a  mere phase, and hc does not believe  that it can achieve anything. Already  it has produced a revolution in Russia, an upheaval compared with  whicli thc French revolution was a  tremor. Me believes that other upheavals will follow aud that revolutions will continue to accompany the  war to the end. In his view it is  impossible to conduct such a tremendous and long-sustained war  without political revolutions in most  of tlic belligerent countries, lie believes, too, what uiost of us bclievo,  ti at oiie of the rcsul.s of thc struggle  will be an improvement, in the condition of the working classes.

Recently the J  monks ejemauded equal political!  rights with the lay population, including thc vote, and they have been  giving other marked evidences of revolutionary zeal.  Five hundred criminal prisoners in  the province of Nizhni-Novgorod  havc petitioned the government that  they be sent to join the army. A  special commission has examined  Vi d accepted 300 of those who signed  the petition.  A novel measure to suppress thievery in thc soldiers' barracks has bee a  put into practice in Petrograd. A  captured thief was forced to walk  along the Ncvsky Prospect bearing  placards with the inscription: "i  stole sugar and shoes from the soldiers." After the ordeal tea was  given to him and he was released on  his promise to be good. A similnrt'velt,  story comes from Bessarabia, where  a  clerk of thc  war organization  wa.s  A  The Blindly  Obedient Belief  of  German People in 'Their-  War Lords  There can be no hope of genuine  ���������reform' in Germany until an overwhelming majority realize and admit  the absurdity of their present belief  that their country, after exhausting  every possible means of keeping the  peace, was forced to defend herself  against a ring of jealous enemies.  That delusion is the foundation stone  upon wliich the government have  reared their whole gigantic structure  of falsehood. People Will fight equally  hard for their beliefs whether those  beliefs 'be right or wrong, and until  this foundation stone is torn awav  the combination of millions of blindly  obedient industrial human ants, putting all their faith in a set of unscrupulously ambitious leaders, will continue to be a firebrand in the society of nations. This stone is so  firmly set that, it-cannot be moved  until Germany is forced to admit thatj  she is defeated.  While the majority of Germans  whine at thc British blockade of the  German stomach, they delight in their  own government's blockade of the  German mind. If a "neutral" comes  to England from Germany he is asked bj' everyone he meets, "How* avc  accused of stealing a horse.

"Justice for Everyone"  to  California  Youths  Would    Help  Work Alberta Farms  Following the example of three  hundred students of the Illinois Agricultural College, who arc now in  Western Canada, helping in agricultural operations, nearly 100 stout-  limbed boys down in Pasadena, California, would like to come to Alberta for thc summer and help out on  the farms, says tho Kdmonton Journal. The physical director of the  high school in that city has written  to the board of trade asking if there  is any need of their services in the  Edmonton district or other parts of  the province. He says the boys are  between sixteen and twenty years of  age, and have felt the promptings of  war time patriotism to the extent  being willing to offer themselves  farm service wherever Ihey may  wanied most. The fact that 'Alberta  has appealed to them as a first choice  is taken as a pleasant, indication of  the feeling across the line lowari  this part of allied Canada, and Secretary Fisher will assure the young  Californians that their action i3 appreciated.

The world war in the view of many  seems about to bring true the dream  that has persisted through the centuries that thc Jew has wandered the  earth. He is about to have his own  home back again, to live there or  visit in security. That this security  should be maintained by America is  the idea of Israel Zangwill.  "Such a protectorate," he said,  "would be expected, of course, to endure only so long as was necessary to  see the Jewish nation firmly established among the nations of the  earth."   '���������'."���������  This statement to the United Press'/  by the great leader of Jewish opinion is significant for its indication of  a meeting point between the efforts  he has led and the efforts of the  Zionists of whom Louis D. Brandeis  has been the most prominent in  America. The. Zionists have made  P; lestine their sole objective. Zang-  wiil's organization has-airged that it  is more important that the Jews  should colonize somewhere at thc  earliest possible time than that they  should return to their own ancient  land. Admitting the strength of tho  tic that binds them to Palestine, he  has urged that if this is not feasible'  they should settle elsewhere.

There is a strong belief in England that restoration of Palestine to  the Jews would be a profitable political  undertaking for the British.  "It is not expected," said Mr.  Zangwill, "that all*, tbe Jews of the  world would flock there to make  their homes. It is my belief that the  Jewish agriculturalists who find living  difficult elsewhere, should be aided to  return and that they should form  the basis of thc new nation. Jerusalem's location might make it the sife  for a great commercial or' trading  city, but the important thing is not  to draw there those who have prospered in other corners of the globe,  but to care for the great numbers o:  oppressed in other lands.  "With a Jewish nation established,  the Jews everywhere would feel they  have a home again, whether or not  circumstances permitted them to live  there themselves."  Zangwill won the support of Joseph Chamberlain and Winston  Churchill to his colonization scheme  before the war, but South Africa,  Canada and Australia opposed it In  turn. A Jewish nation in Palestine  is another matter.  The menace which Turkish possession of Palestine offers Egypt and  the trade route to India must be removed, British statesmen agree. Kv-r  en before tire war many considered  the recreation ^of the Jewish state  thc best solution. Opinion changed,  however, during the war, largely because of the sympathy many Jews of  German origin in America admitted  for Germany. It was feared that a,  nation sympathetic toward Germany  would be a dangerous one to_ have  so close to this strategic link in the  British  Empire.  ��������� The Russian revolution has changed this. Jewish sympathy, alienated  by the treatment of the Jews in Russia under the old regime, has been  won back by the new regime. Jacob  Schiff's declaration for the Allies,  following the announcement by the"-  provisional government of equal  rights for the Jews in Russia, was  not the only one to come to the attention of the British government. A  Jewish state in Palestine now would  be a friendly, even grateful state, it  is believed.  Zangwill's idea of an American  protectorate is based on the desire  that Jewish interests should be protected by a great power that had no  interest there to serve. Whether  such a protectorate Avould appcafl to  British statesmen is doubtful. It is  more likely that in case a Jewish nation is set up, Great. Britain herself  will garrison thc country until law  and order aud the stability of the  new  government  is assured.  Mr. Balfour  w,  N.
