The balance of 2.422 crates  are pretty well distributed over Creston, Erickson, Canyon, Alice Siding  and the Reed & Mather stop.  Possibly.one "more carload will be  sent from Wynndel. but this depends  entirely on the weather. A real  soaker of a. rain within forty-eight  hours would lengthen oat the season,  but if nothing but the 01-in-the-shade  sort that has prevailed all week is to  happen along strawberry shipping  will be over for the year before our  next issue.  While the yield has been disappointingly light and the weather  everything almost that it should not  have been, the prices the grower will  receive are most encouraging. Yesterday the local Union was issuing  cheques for the berries shipped in  June, and the payments were on a  basis of $3.50 per crat*? for the first  week's berries, an3 $3 a crate for those  went out the second week.

Incidentally the Bonners Ferry  Commercial, Club will be asked to  launch a similar campaign with the  authorities across the line.  "' The condition' of the Valley roads  was again a feature of discussion, and  in view of the futility of the correspondence with the department in  effecting improvement it was decided  to have the secretary write John  Keen, M.P.P., asking him.on his visit  to Creston to meet the board to discuss the roads, question, as well as  Other matters that the board has been  asking action on from   the authorities  ���������t-m.   *%Ti tr*L jf%*������3 Ck  in  '���������*.

McCreath had- .^resigned as  poundkeeper for this district- and  tasked the board to Suggest a successor  for the position. On, -motion.* the  president and secretary were named  to-look-after the matter. The fruit  cabinets committee reported spending  about $10 in remodelling and repainting these cabinets which are now  ready for use. Owing to the short  crop of strawberries and the consequent shortage of real good fruit to  display the cabinets have not been  used as early as anticipated, but now  other varieties are coming along these  displays should be in evidence  regnlaaly from next week forward.  For the next four weeks Messrs.  Bevan, Speers and F. H. Jackson will  look after this work.  Tho fishery department reported  that the C.P,R. had promised to look  into tho possiblity of putting in a fish  ladder in the culvert at Duck Oreck,  and the board? was asked to keep tab  on the work and report if the job was  done as satisfactorily as tho situation  warrants.  For the National Service Committee Mr. Bennett, chairman, report-  the committee's recommendations,  which wore adopted. To copo with  aftor-the*wai* conditions the committee urged, among othor things,  that whon the troops are being returned to Canada that tho men who  bavo jobs held open for them and the  mon who formerly followed agricultural pursuits bo returned first of all  and .that tho other ;trudccmcn bo  brought back In the ordor in whioh  the labor market best warranted, so  far as possible  Tho authorities will alflo bo urged  to undertake the Kootenay Flats  Reclamation work as a moans of  providing employment and to provide  fj!!t cdf*e property for t,ho<*.t> of thc  soldiors who may want to follow  agricultural life. The board propouos  to do uomo educational work In this  connection and Messrs. Hayes, R.

R.    F.  The proposed tolls on the new  telephone line to Cranbrook were discussed and it was pointed out that a 3-  minute -talk from Creston to Cranbrook is now costing 25 cents more  than the same service between Creston and Nelson. Both points being,  equally distant from Creston and the  service similar in every respect in both  cases it is felt the seryice eastsh6u!d  be reduced in price to correspond  with the charges on business west.  The board will point out this discrepancy to the companies interested and  ask for immediate adjustment of .the  situation.  The   matter  of  making   a   strong  exhibit  at   the    Cranbrook   fair   in  September was unanimously approved  and Messrs.  Gibbs,   Bevan, Oatway,  Constable, R. Stark and" W. V.

Trustees to Ask  Levy of $4,500.00  Four Thousand Five Hundred  ($4,600.00) dollars was decided upon at  the adjourned meeting ,of Creston  School trustees on Monday night to  be asked of the ratepayers at the  annual school meeting to-morrow for:  the running of the local school for the  ensuing year.  Of course all this cash money will  not be forthcoming���������at least for the  past four years the 'amount voted  never has, and .there are no signs  visible at present that this year of  grace wiii differ much from its  predecessors,, therefore, if, only the  customary: 75 per? cent, of the total  asked is to be received-the $3,375 that  will come along during the term will  just nicely take care of the estimated  and necessary expenditure of the  school year.  Of this sum  about   $2,115   will be  needed for arrears of teachers' salaries  well  as   stipends for the current  -A-SXriMS  siim  :PPpA&i  as  term." If the high cost of living does  not tend to boost janitor's salaries  another $415 will be required to finance  that official and the $50 allowed the  secretary'treasurer.  Not only is fuel getting mote expensive eyery year���������and' due to no  revenue available the trustees were  not able last winter to stock up for a  year ahead, therefore ..the fuel bill for  the full term will-have tc be paid out  of the new money to be voted, and \t  is figured if the winter is about the.  same as.the one just passed some $125  will be needed for fuel. A. like  amount���������.taking   last   term's  figures  jt,"*  Suppt������i.S.  g&iok&on  Mrs. Gus. Bay of Red Deer, Alta.,  arrived the latter part, of the week,  and will spend the month with her  parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. Hamilton.

Mrs. Archie Kerr of Sandon, who  has been with her mother, Mrs. H.  Hamilton foi* the past two nionthf*.  is returning to her homo in the Sloean  this week.  The O.P.R. bridge crew was here  on Tuesday unloading a car of timber  that wiii be used in some very necessary repairs to the Erickson station,  this month.  Miss G.

Miss  Melva Cartwright, who Is now on the  staff at Cranbrook. and waa homo for  a fow days, has joined a camping  party that has gone up the lakes.  R. J.

The grand total of all this expense  is in the neighborhood of .$3,400���������  which will be19, forthcoming on the  basis of 75 per cent, of a total vote of  $1,500. Last meeting tho trustees  request for $4,000 was cut to $3,000 in  tho hope that much vigorous protest  to the authorities at Victoria, as well  as the local M.P.P., would remedy  past defects and bring along the full  $8,000 voted. But it didn't work that  way in spite of. much cor>*espondence  and the efforts of the member for  Kaslo. All tho money that came to  tho trustees was the customary 75 per  cant., and *vVhon got aftcr to hustle up  some of the arrears both the provincial assessor and the education department assumed pretty much tho  attitude of the proverbial Job Hare's  hired man, '.'who didn't know nothh.'  and didn't want} to know nothin',  seemingly, from all the satisfaction  that was to be had.

Not only did  they carry away with them silks and  embroideries,- jewels, spices, and  fruits, but in die bottoms of their  ships they brought seeds. When  these seeds Were planted in the rich  soil of Holland, such wondrous flowers appeared as had never before  been seen in that northern country.  The people became wildly enthusiastic ovcr the new colors and scents  and foliage brought to them from  the east, and in Holland there sprang  up  a  great love for gardening.  the"new condition of things; they had  travelled a good deal about 3v.tropc,  and she had never been dull. Then  it had become highly necessary for  thc colonel to repair to India, where  some years previously lie had invested a very large amount of money in  a certain concern which was now  needing supervision aud enquiry; sh :  had gone out with him there, ar.d had  found to hcr disgust that they would  have to remain���������if her husband's  money was to be saved���������for s-une  y-.ars in a part of thc country wherein there was little of interest and  next to no .society. She had borne  it for a ycar or two; then she had  come, home, leaving Colonel Tressingham to struggle with his business  until he could put right many th'ugs  that had gone wrong. Shc had five  hundred a year of her own; she had  a similar amount, from her husbr-nd.  On thi;- income she set herself up in  a Hal in Mayfair and begun to amuse  herself in her own way.

My noli, n���������my hope���������is to find a quiet Utile place in the Midlands where we  can get hunting, fishing, a bit of  n ugh shooting. I ask for nothing  better.  "But, on the other hand, I believe  there is no doubt that if I stuck to  things .here for five, years longer I  should certainly get back every penny of my original capital and perhaps a little more.

Candour is a cheap  commodity; like politeness, il costs  nothing, and il is easily dealt out to  relations. Hilda dealt il out freely  to this far-away husband.  hirst of all, she reminded him she  had no great, faith in the medical  men he talked of.

Airplane Mail Carriers  Expect  Aviators  Will  Not  Abandon  Air Work When the War  Is Over  If is said lhat the French government is planning to convert its corps  of army aviators, thousands upon  thousands of them, into mail carriers  after the. war.  There are no technical difficulties  in the way. Airplane engines have  been pevfected to the highest degree  of reliability and their speed has been  developed marvelously. Nothing short  of thick fog, a violent thunderstorm  or a hurricane bordering almost on a  tornado now serves to prevent flying  ���������with rarely a casualty from natural  causes.  Indeed, the greatest defect in thc  army aerial service, according lo officials in that branch, is overcon-  fidenc.c in what the airplane engine  can do. Flights of six and eight and  ten hours without replenishing the  gasoline supply are now of common  occurrence. Mountains can be scaled  as if they.were mounds tinder the  foot of a Brobdingagian. Aviators  leave the British side of thc Channel  and deposit passengers or messengers on. the war front' with no more  sense of thc unusual than if they had  taken a steamer from Dover to Boulogne.  The possibilities of mail ::arryi������g  in difficult regions have not been  thoroughly investigated, because only  the demands for war efficiency have  brought flying up to the point of deH  pendability needed for general service. The French government did  establish some, postal routes for airmen, but nothing on an extensive  scale was adopted. Commercially,  the utility of the airplane aftcr the  war will be open to the fullest exploitation. Britain will have scores of  thousands of expert aviators and not  many of these will abandon the  "sport" which now is serving the  British armies so splendidly.  t:  Friends   Worth   Retaining  The Grea������.

In the Algerian war the French  recruited them from some fierce Arab  tribes known by the many-vowelled  name "Zooaouas," and their achieve-  mnts under Lamboriciere and Cav-  aignac soon attracted enthusiastic,  young Frenchmen to their ranks.  They adopted the Moorish uniform,  fought with distinction in the Crimea  and the regiment became a close corporation for their compatriots, all of  African birth being refused admission.

FRIDAY, JULY 13  Tho Noxi Wiowo  When one stops to consider the  considerable extra effort that has  been put forth in the Creston Valley alone this season in response to  the shout for greater production������������������  particularly in the line of vegetables  and when the difficulties of other  years in successfully marketing  these same products are recalled,  and remembering the inadequacy  of local storage facilities, there is  no dodging the question that,  concerted action on a considerable  scale will be  necessary   if  little or  direction confined solely to police  court activities. In the matter of  a Small Debts" court we are  absolutely lacking, due to the fact  that only one judge of this sort is  at hand, and two of them are  needed to constitute a court for this  purpose.  A satisfactory solution of the  whole trouble would be the appointment of a stipendiary magistrate who is authorized to exercise  all the functions of a brace of J.P.'s  both in police as well as the Small  Debts court work. Kaslo has  been favored in this direction in  theohoioe of P. T. Abey. Why  not Creston, Mr. Attorney General.

Here and there through  out the Dominion or elsewhere  there is sure to be need for the  surplus and the work most import^  ant now is to see that all excess  supplies reach the places where  they are most needed. And now  is the time to begin.  For a starter Canada's newly- i  appointed food controller can  probably busy himself on the  assembling and distributi- n or  disposal of this surplus to better  advantage than along most any  line���������with the active assistance of  provincial governments in figuring  out just where the excess products  are to be had, and where and how  to place them to thebestadvantage.  s-Wno^h-mB^ -w* *t^*b PBosqs&q  While so far as local judicial  convenience goes THE REVIEW,  personally, is as unconcerned as a  certain gentleman who when asked  For a contribution to help defray  the cost of repairing a cemetery  fence refused to oblige on lhe  assurance that he knew of no one  in the cemetery who was liable to  get out, or no one ont of it who  v.'fi.f*; liable to wfint to bren.k into \t,  there is still a oertain amount of  inconvenience experienced in this  regard that there is no occasion  For.

Niot having a telephone into his  residence and the urgency usually  attendant on such matters rendering poHtal eomuiuiiication a bit  slow and uncertain, some needless  worry nnd expeiine is incurred all  round in getting (he urbane  Wynndel magistrate to and from  court, to nay nothing of the I ohm of  time in* KiiiierH it nii-in*i Honoiin  Mintl'*-" in itu-'lf to n nmeher at thin  reason of the year.

The  system might be still further  improved by naming well-known  sportsmen in each section���������men  who have game preservation at  heart���������to largely look after due  observance of the open and close  1 seasons for game.  As to outfitting our officers of  the law with horses and decking  them out in blue suits and brass  buttons it is to be hoped no hard  and fast general regulations will  be made, particularly in the matter  of mounting these men.  In districts similar to the one  here a horse woidd add little or  nothing to the efficient work of  the local officer, and would add  considerable expense for upkeep.  A Ford car would be more serviceable .all round, with no expense  piling up in feed bills when not in  use.  For display purposes or occasions  such as court sittings a police  officer in uniform is quite the  thing, but For everyday duty a  good working suit and the regulation badge is the more effective,  and loss expensive to the government.

Whether  this will be given forthwith and  the provisions of' the new act  enforced immediately is not yet  disclosed.  Postponement of bringing the  law into force will be entirely due  to the noisy but not necessarily  numerically strong opposition to it  that has developed in Quebec, and  the plea of numerous speakers that  had recruiting been gone at right  in that province Queboo would  havo Rent along almost itB full  quota of recruits and oonsoriptive  legislation would have boon unnecessary.  And Queboo is not the only  province in default in.thut regard  ���������outside of B.C., Alborta and,  possibly, Saskatchewan nono havo  done their required duty. Therefore it i������ just powbiblo selective  conscription will bo held off until  one moro gigantic, and it is hoped  united, effort is made by politicians,  press, pulpit, and all the othor  ellective agencies to secure about  75,000   more   lighting   men,   ami  ��������� ItJ-M^        *������ i\ \r /.  nt*  f������������������  rty^ftmifti*  of half a million men whioh were  to havc been in uniform before the  dawn of the present year.  This proposition to enact the  ''will you come, or will I have to  take you" business listens good but  is not token soriously by recruiting  authorities. Gentlemen who have  not already signed on voluntarily  under existing circumstances are  most likely to be more backward  than ever in coming forward,  trusting that in the moro than a  million Canadians liable for call  under tho new systom they may be  lucky enough to escape a place on  thc initial draft of 100,000.  Opposed to any further extensions of voluntary effort aro  many, who oharge that tho ohief  fault with tho Conservative taotics  in respect to this conscription bili  is that tho party loaders havo allowed it to simmer and stew needlessly ovor a long poriod of timo.  Nothing is gained hy such taotics,  aud much lost. It has allowed the  oppononts of tho hill in Quebec  provinoo an oxtondod period in  whioh to organize rosistanoo and  got themselves "hot up" whon  really thoro is no occasion.

There may still be the saving  remnant amongst our citizens  who will yet. save the day for the  voluntary enlistment system, and  the spectacle of our politicians  really forgetting thoir politics and  combining in a sincere and united  effort to foster real Canadianism  and forestall conscription might,  work the oracle but liko the Dutchman's f'ying pigs, they're very  unlikely birds.

Cherries���������There is also a decrease  in the quantity of this fruit only 05  per cent, of last year's crop being expected. The heavy June drop,  especially in the Sweet Cherry varieties, is accountable for this.  Strawberries���������Sixty five per cent,  of last year's crop. Thc prevailing  dry weather of the past two weeks is  the cause of the.decrease of this fruit.  The present outlook is that the berry  season will be over in about eight  days. At the present time fonr  straight carloads of Strawberries havo  been shipped, containing in all 2850  cases of berries. Two of these cars  woro shipped to Calgary, ono to Edmonton and the other car to Cam rose,  Alta.  Currants���������Seventy five per cent, of  a crop Is expected. Drought also is  tho cause of the decrease of this  fruit.  On tho whole tho report will bo  accepted as correct. Mr Fletcher  has looked the district over and has  consulted tho individual growers as  well. If there is any different opinion to olfor it would seem to Tun Rn-  vikw that a olightly lower estimate on  strawberries would be justifiable, but  on the apples our information is that  at least a crop equal to 1010 is confidently expected, while on the  cherries any decrease In the sweet  uarietina it is thought   the abundance  ������������f I l������J> umili imi������(,  ������������������������������,������l������l   i,l*>it������f.   finunllun  ...........

Tribute t������ Canada  Russian   Premier  Speaks of the Future Policy of the   Empire,  Stating that Russia Cannot Hand Doajji to Future Generations  A Dishonored Name  1 I'riuee. LvotT. ihe Russian premier,  *nd M. Tereschtenko, thc newly appointed minister, made long statements at a press reception on the recent crisis aud the policy of Russia.  Prince LvofL after declaring that  the nation .had been brought to the  edge of an abyss said:  "The goyernment considers that  its first duty is to consolidate .. the  fighting strength of the army, as  well'as for safeguarding, the conquests of .restitution and for driving  * out the enemy and actively supporting the allies. The government considers that it is its duty to proclaim  clearly and definitely its desire for  the consolidation of a speedy peace;  but, in speaking of peace without annexation or indemnities, the government declares it is not a question of  passive defence. Free Russia will  not consent to leave under the yoke  of German militarism territories  which were abandoned owing to thc  criminal negligence of the old regime. Neither cau Russia remain  indifferent to the fate of Belgium,  Serbia,' or Roumania," nor forget its  duties toward them. ,Russia cau-  "not hand down to future generations  a dishonored reputation.  "The existing armistice at the front  which gave the German chancellor a  pretext to formulate his idea of a  separate peace, dishonorable to Russia, must cease. The country must  speak its imperious word, and send  its army out to fight."  M. Tcreschtenko in his statement  of the policy of free Russia as outlined in the declaration of the provisional government, strongly emphasized the need of an indissoluable union with the allied democracies and  the consciousness of the duty those  tics impose upon Russia. He declared that it was a question of the honor of the revolution whicli was more  precious to Russia than ever.  ���������'1 note with deep satisfaction,"  continued the minister, "that in our  free Russia, despite our divergencies  of view, there is no party, no single  organization such as existed in reactionary Russia, capable of carrying  on propaganda in"favor of a separate  N-j.eace. There is one question, however, wliich still lets loose the passions, namely, the question of the  treaties concluded by the old regime,  the immediate publication of which  is demanded. This, I am convinced,  is  a mistaken   demand.  "The Russian democracy must understand lhat the publication of these  treaties would mean a rupture with  the allies and the isolation of Russia,  which would be the beginning of a  separate peace. But this is just  what the entire Russian people, repudiates with all its strength.  dcrslands that tax international war  ean only be concluded by an international peace.- New Russia must look  forward, not behind.  "There are two great new facts iu  thewar���������the Russian revolution and  thc entry of thc. great republic of thc  United Stales. A new start must bc  made from these facts, and free Russia niust prove that she is loyally l'ul-  iiiling the engagements she. entered  upon with the allies for a united  struggle and mutual help.

According to  military reports, it often ; happened  that as many as one million shots  daily were fired from guns of various calibres. If, however, one million  shells are taken as thc weekly instead of the daily average, we reach  almost incredible totals. Taking the  ground -fought over as 260 square  kilometres, and the average weight  of��������� shells as 90 lbs., no less than 1,-  350,000 tons of steel exploded on tho  area in question. This weight is sufficient to load 135,000 heavy goods  wagons, and works, out at 13 tons of  steel per acre. Taking the price of  scrap steel at 3 pounds 10s per ton,  we have a crop of steel worth about  45 pounds per acre, a crop which  "Prometheus" thinks is well worth  garnering.  American Paper Praises Spirit of the  Canadian Troops  When the history of the war comes  to bc told, Canada's place i,i it will  stand forth to pur wonder and  amazement. Canada's contribution in  men and money, in bravery aud endurance, in unselfish resourcefulness,  ih quick and adequate response, has  been tremendous and magnificent.  Proportionately to her population  Canada will be found to have made  the largest, monetary contributions to  the war, not only for the formation  and equipment of her own vast armies, not only in subscriptions to the  cver-rccurring war loans, but also in  aid to the multitudinous relief funds  for Belgium, for France, for Serbia,  for Poland for the widows and orphans and dependents of soldiers in the  Tvar, for the provision of luxuries for  the troops, for the Red Cross, and in  the stalwart application of those who  remained at home for the production  of foodstuffs for the warring countries.

Counting the cost is not  the Canadian way. Out of a contingent of 25,000 troops at the outset of  thc war, not 2,500 live to tell the  tale. Their casualties were appalling,  but the only effect they had upon the  Canadian heart was to accelerate recruiting and volunteers poured iu to  avenge their fellows. It has been  officially stated in Canada that for  "every.,, man that falls, five more enlist.  It was the Canadians that bore thc.  first terrible brunt of the asphyxiating gas attacks, which came as such  a staggering surprise, the Hague Convention having*specifically forbidden  its use. The stories of the tortures  they suffered at that time, of the appalling condition of those who lived  through it, is heart-rending.    But tkc  ������  experience did but. stiffen their back  bones aud their determination to increase,, their aid in men and money to  fight the common enemy. No wonder  the thousand Chinese who have, volunteered to fight with the allies, enlisting from Vancouver, expressed  the wish to serve under Canadian officers .'���������'������������������-.  Canada, a young country, needing  all her men at home, never hesitated  once they had put their shoulder to  -the wheel. And they have never  slackened their ardor, no matter what  befell. .

Scientific Burglary  Dean Inge Says Teutons Are  Not a  Fighting Race  service 1 Speaking at Lhc Temple >church,  } London, Dean Inge said our opponents in this war were not. really a  lighting race, and so thoy had no  chivalry. War for them was a sordid business, shorn of all romance; it  was merely a scientific burglary by a  verv  large gang.  It seemed to hiin lhat reliance., on  the law of progress, on socialism, democracy, common sense aud industry, or on organized religion, lo prevent a recurrence, of what w-as happening, was in euch case alike futile;  they wotdd fail again as they had  failed now.

An eyc-witncss of the fiendish and  senseless destruction wrought by the  German; armies in their present "(light  homewards conveys what is clearly  a true and impartial account of what  is taking place. .  I saw hc writes, from a poin! within reach of the pellets the very last  shells fired at Bapaume, have traversed many blasted villages, and have  spent almost leisurely hours iu' Per-  onnc���������fondly called by the French La  Pucclje���������which has lost under German 'treatment every touch of her  maidenly grace and beauty. With  such opportunities it is not difficult  to tell how much of the ruin has been  wrought by shell lire, how much by  mine or fire or army house-breakers.  Calculated brutality, scientific, exis-  ceration, cannot cloak themselves under the guise of acts of war.    *  The  facts  are  these:    As   soon  as  the  inhabitants  were   driven   off and  sent behind this great fortified    line  of  which   the   German   papers  boast.  all that was worth having was carted  off and all the rest destroyed.      The  manner of destruction    varied    with  the  thing to be destroyed.    In Per-  oiine are many fine trees planted for  ornament.     The military authorities,  probably    from lack of labor,    could  uot cart tlrem away,  could not  even  spend  time in fellling  them.  c~  :���������rt-..������������������iif...,.  .* ~ ~: -.  ������~  i i-  .j\j   juojJtivjJVJis     IVJ..JJ.-   gJvi.ij    vj^    ua^Jj  every tree, as a hedge-laj'er cuts  hedge-stakes, just deep enough to  ensure thc death of the tree. So the  German left "his mark," a V-shaped  convict's mark, cut half-way through  each trunk of the avenue. Fruit trees  are more carefully severed than ornamental trees, and .especial care has  been taken to destroy completely the  espaliers and prettily trained fruit  trees in which French gardeners take  special  and peculiar delight.  I do not know why. but the sight  of these little fruit trees with their  throats cut\ filled me. with more  trenchant rage against the German  mind than all the rest of the havoc.  Probably, a list of trees and other  things that inhabitants of thc Bapaume. and Peronne districts will  need after the war is already filed in  the commercial department at Berlin.  So much for thc gardens. Now for  lhc houses. I do uot know how  many score 1 entered, how many  hundred I stared into through thc  shattered facades. Along whole  streets where every front wall was  ���������..erst open, I could find no vestige of  any shell hole or of the distinctive  oval"hole that a shell usually punctures in brickwork.  Thc work had been done, I am  wholly convinced, by small charges,  of ammonal, one of which was found  arid most bravely carried away by  one. of thc parly. The quarters of the  town where the shells had been directed .were very well defined; and it  was in these only lhat the front walls-  were erect, though damaged.  Within thc houses mess and filth  were invariable. It was a wonder how  so much rubble could have been  amassed, Iu the Hotel de Ville in  Peronne, a building spared because  used to the last as a hospital, each  room, save only the cellars and dugout below the. cellars, was impassable  for debris.  The general impression of desolation wrought hy some bull-headed  uiinolaur or vulture harpy was etched into thc features of a more odious  because more human and intelligent  monster when lhe. minor individual  details of this ^ general wreckage  reached   lhe  imagination.  Here was a long mirror hung  ������������������gainst lhc wall. U was shivered by  means of a hammer still lying <>u thc  I have said nothing of acts of dc������-  tiuction that have auy military object. War, as conducted by thcBoche  is a beast's game' and ��������� has bestial  rules". The mining of ;all .wells, except  the. one or two left for chemical  treatment, is, I suppose, a'i military  precaution like the shattering of the  railway stations and the permanent  way. Indeed, with regard to military  precautions of this sort, my personal  feeling was that by far the least  thorough part of the work was the  blocking of traffic. You could drive a  motor at good speed along main  roads seven or eight' hours after the  enemy had left them.  The mining and blocking seemed to  my eyes rather casual and perfunctory, at any rate vastly inferior in  thoroughness to the looting and the  wanton excesses against property.  The military mining and tree felling  were done under orders. The stealing and breaking up of gardens and  houses were done for pleasure and  profit���������con amore.  So it is that you can bicycle along  country roads in the rear of the enemy and meet little obstruction.  Scores of obvious checks and barriers have been omitted. But in all  the towns and in all thc villages you  may search from dawn to dusk for  vny single example of slackness in  the art, or perhaps science of thieving and fouling.  In September of 1914, in the close  neighborhood of Rheims, a French  general���������"a soldier and a gentleman"  if ever ther was one���������-showed mc in  a little little shop how everything  has been sifted till nothing worth  more than twopence-halfpenny was  left in the heap on the floor, ;and I  walked through villages robbed of  every watch, every sheet, blanket,  and bolster.  But the German . lias advanced  since those days. He cau now loot  a large town' so that not the value  of a penny piece is left, and he can  retreat over a country side without  leaving a roof or a saucepan, or a  fruit tree.  store'  table-'  a   pile  The  Explanation  An   elderly   lady   entered     a  and   asked   to  be   shown   souk  cloths,   A   salesman   brought  and showed them to her bnt she said1  .she  had   seen   (hose  elsewhere���������nothing   suited   hcr.
