A report received by the  trade and commerce department  from Canadian trade commissioner  Beddoe, of Auckland, says that a  Canadian firm recently sent out to  New Zealand samples of lead pencils, the first made in Canada following the stopping of the Austrian  supply. Mr. Beddoe says that the  samples were found very satisfactory  and substantial orders have been sent  to Canada.      -  "  He also notes , that if Canadian  firms were not so busy with war  orders they could capture in New  Zealand a much greater proportion  of the business formerly enjoyed by  Germany.

George Sullivan, Who Suffered From  the Dread Disease for Two Years  Gives Credit for His Recovery to  Dodd's Kidney Pills.  Montreal, Que., (Special)���������Completely cured of that most dreaded of  all diseases, Bright's Disease of the  kidneys, Mr. George Suiiivan, 284 de  St- Valiers St., this city, is spreading  the good news that he found his cure  in D^odd's Kidney Pills.  "I suffered from Bright's Disease  for two years," Mr. Sullivan states in  an interview. "I was unable to work  for weeks. at a time. I spent hundreds of dollars on doctors without  receiving any real benefit and received outdoor treatment at the Montreal  General Hospital.  "I was. feeling very badly discouraged when a friend advised ine to try  Dodd's Kidney Pills. Aftcr it-sing  three boxes I was much better.- I  kept on till I had used nine boxes,  ���������when I was completely cured.  "Naturally I consider Dodd's Kidney Pills a wonderful remedy."  Dodd's Kidney Pills are no cure-  all. They cure kidney diseases of all  kinds from backache to Bright's Disease. The proof of this is their  growing popularity in Canada for  over a quarter of a century. If you  haven't used them ask your neighbor  about them.  Close Dartmoor Prison  Dartmoor prison,.which is to be  closed as a convict prison and put to  other uses, was built during our last  great war as an internment camp for  French prisoners, and opened in 1809.  For many years aftcr the end of the  war and the release of the prisoners  Princetown, as the prison is officially  called, remained vacant, until in I8d5  it was first utilized as a convict prison, being one of the largest in the  country, with .accommodation for  rearly eight hundred prisoners. The  use to which it is now to be put has  not been disclosed, but it would be  rather a coincidence if, after a complete century, it is to revert to its  original use as a barracks for prisoners of war.���������London Chronicle-  One of the commonest complaint*  of infants is worms, and the most effective application for them is Mother Graves' Worm Exterminator.  A Useful "Movie"  After more than a year of effort  the faculty of John Hopkins Medical  School, at Baltimore, has produced  over 15,000 feet of modern picture  film which it will use in teaching  surgery.  While the view which these films  present would be gruesome indeed to  the ordinary movie fan, they promise  to be of the greatest value to medical students. For generations surgery has been taught by charts, by  dissection of corpses, by clinics, etc-  Tha limitation in using charts and  corpses in particular, are apparent.  But with clear motion pictures the  student can study again and again the  actual steps taken by surgeons engaged in operating.

MAY 26  Thin ami Spray  No better  advice  can be  given  the   orchardists,  says  the Vernon  News, than that   they devote very  special   attention   this   season   to  spraying   and  thinning.    It   goes  without saying  that, owing to the  British    embargo,     very   difficult  problems     regarding     marketing  conditions on the prairies will have  to   be  faced   this   year.    Inferior  grades of fruit will be greatly at a  discount, and it is doubtful if a sale  at   anything     approaching    to   a  profitable   price  will   be found for  number two or three apples.    Only  the best product  of  our   orchards  will, in all  probability,   be  able to  meet   the  unusual  competition of  Ontario and  Nova   Scotia fruit at  figures that will bring the growers  any     returns     making    shipment  possible.    There never was a time  in tbe. history of  the fruifc growing  industry here when  it   was so im- ]  perative that special  care be given j  to the trees- i  for early August to put through  the necessary legislation, along  with some other measures that  were unfinished when the legislature adjourned on Saturday.  While the "dry" extremists are  sure to manifest some dissatisfaction at the turn events have taken  in this direction, the saner element  in the temperance forces as well as  the people generally will commend  the government on the course ifc  has adopted.  Undoubtedly      Mr.       Brewster  would have found   it good politics  to have brought in prohibition as a  war   measure,   with   another vote  after peace has been concluded, but  in   preferring   fco  extend   the   wet  spell a matter of  three  months in  order   to  ascertain   all  the   facts,  and  then  setfcle  the  matter once  and   for   all,     he    has    certainly  strengthened fche impression   most-  people down this way   had of him,  that  persoally   he  is pretty   level  headed.    For ail the   booze that is  liable to be consumed   in the extra  three months Mr.   Brewster  is  indeed well advised "to be sure you  are right then go ahead."  sea  No Easy -Job  From Kaslo comes word that  John D.

The superintendent and the  party men have a grand'chance to  make a name for themselves. We  shall see what we shall see.  After mature deliberation, and  after having the "dry" and the  "web" sides very fully presented,  the government at Victoria has  decided to not monkey with prohibition in any manner until a  thorough investigation has been  made of fche irregularities charged  in connection with taking the  soldiers vote overseas on this  measure.  It will be recalled that the vote  in British Columbia resulted in a  "dry" majority of several thousand,  but as the soldiers in France and  England were allowed up till tho  tfrst of the year to caRt their ballots  on the measure it is not so very  many weeks sirce the final returns  on both the soldiers and civilians  vote is available, and a majority of  fill the position any expression of  opinion must be witheld until he  has been seen iu action.  Due to the fact that the former  administration parted company  with him will subject him to some  suspicion in some quarters, doubtless, but. if he has the ability his  friends claim for him, working  under the changed conditions and  with an alleged slightly discredited  past to atone for, there is considerable reason to hope for the best���������  this early in the season.  In chronicling, his appointment  the Kootenaian remarks that uit is  pretty generally viewed with satisfaction, especially by the boys in  the hills, who have always found  J.D. pretty square when it came  to the laying out of trail and  roadwork."  This is assuring, at any rate, but  it is not the only qualification Mr.  Moor a will require if he is to fill  the position in its entirety. As  part of its policy of retrenchment  the government last December dismissed aii fche road superintendents,  and promise was given that in the  new scheme that was to bo adopted  greater efficiency would be the  prime consideration, along with  due regard for better roads   at loss  4������*jk������C4<.l J J  St  Home     oOO     announced  prohibition.

Few, if any, are surprised at the  announcement. Recruiting within the last two months had hardly  been vigorous _enough to replace  the men killed and wounded in the  advance in which the Canadians  have been so prominent since very  early in April.  Not only had the number of men  coming forward been insufficient  to take care of the wastage, but  for many months past it has been  all too apparent that the wrong  men were putting oh the khaki.  Many who should jiave stayed  home have gone, and those who  should have gone are still in Canada  in very large numbers:  As one authority ���������has put it:  ''We took men off the farms, but  the billiard players, matinee goerB,  and other idlers are still at their  respective amusements. Young  men aro still selling neckwear and  measuring off ribbon,,.but tho hard-  fisted mechanic, whom no woman  oan roplaoo, has gone overseas.  B>iral French Quebec has given  practically nothing to the army,  but the rural parts of Western  Canada have been scooped dry."  Details of' the proposed oon-  soriptivo legislation are laoking,  and in view of tho government's  hesitancy in bringing down tho  measure at all it is unsafe to hazard  a guess as to   how  far thoy  havo  The suggestion has been thrown  out that the proper  plan. to adopt  would be to   draft  all  single men  between the  ages of  eighteen and  twenty-five who  have  not  others  dependent jipom  then.     If   from  this list are  taken  farm  laborers  and   those   connected   ^vith   such  industries .as   shell  making,   coal  mining,    shipbuilding   and   other  trades  and   professions  that have  either directly or  indirectly   to do  with the prosecution  of the war or  the feeding of the people, the plan  should be ideals provided that with  these restrictions efficient   men can  be obtained.   :If not^then   the list  could be opened   still wider to take  in married men,with  no  children,  or the age limit  for  single  men  raised from   twenty-live  to thirty-  five, or forty.  If through any means the legislation can be adapted so that the  gentry who are manipulating the  prices of grain, foodstuffs, etc., up  so high can be conscripted either  for the fighting or into some necessary, and far more useful, occupation permanently, such an opportunity, should not be overlooked.  With all this class of citizen out of  business the effort to regulate food  prices would be simplified immensely.  hear skins.

Or, to put  it better, we went overland took the  trenchesVnd the-Bosche also, for,very  few of .them got away. T?hey sur-  xendered. by "'the ''hundreds.' Our  artillery had all the fight pounded  out of them.  "I never saw before, or expect to  see again, such a sight ?as the German  lines were. For two miles behind his  front line the ground was churned up  and torn to pieces by our big guns.  They missed nothing. The Hun  trenches were filled up and his wire  cut to pieces. Even the trees were  shot down. I don't believe there was  a square yard of that ground that a  shell had not hit. The wonder of the  thing is that there were any Huns  left. But there vyere some lived  through" it alright, but they were  ready to quit when we went over.  Some few, of course, fought to the  death for the Fatherland, hut most of  them surrendered without firing a  shot.  "We Had to face heavy shell fire all  the way.   He gaye us all he had in the  line of  artillery,   and   it. was  quite  enough   for . me-   .Erie    Smith    and,  Greame tVilsou were both wounded  beside me.    Erie was   the first to get  hit.   We were only over Fritz' first  line when he srot~a- bullet through the  left breast about three inches over the  heart.   I had just time to see where  he was hit and give him  a drink of  water when I had to leave him to- keep  up  with . the  rest  of the company.  We hud only gone but a little distance  further when Greame  was wounded.  A shell landed close to him and blew  himToff his feet.   I thought he was  killed, and as I was only ,25 feet from  him Iran over to him,  but before I  got there he was picking himself up  again, so knowing he ' was alright yet  I went back  to the next trench and  got a stretcher bearer to come and  attend to. him.   Another. fellow,. who  came from England with us, was hit  in the leg, so but of the four of us that  chummed together I was the only one  that got through without a scratch.  "But we took the position we started to take, and held it for 48 hours  until relieved. We carried a shovel  each when we went oyer, so we dug  ourselves in under heavy fire from  Fritz's guns. W������ lost dome men in*  doing so, but on the whole our losses  were very slight in comparison with  what ������ expected. It was funny to see  the Germans come running to meet  us. They had the look of beaten dogs  expecting to be kicked, and they did  not need anyone to show them the  way to our rear. They were made to  carry our wounded back on stretchers  and they seemed glad to get the  chance to do so.  "One thing was proved in the last  few days and that Is that the Germans  have no. chance to stand before the'  British artillery.

Using Sunshine for   Heating   Water  in California  The -sun itself heats the hot water  used by mans'-residents of Monrovia  and other places in southern California. According, to the Scientific.  American, the sunshine water heater  consists of"a coil of pipe arranged in  a box about four inches deep with a  copper bottom"and a glass top. The  apparatus is. usually placed on the  roof or in a similar exposed location.  The rays of thc sun heat the water  in the pipe and thus set up a circulation that carries the water to a  storage tank/from which it is drawn  for household usage. The storage  lank is so thoroughly insulated that  the loss of temperature during the  night is usually iio.t tnore than four  or five degrees.

That    was    because      these  Fiench villages  have  endured    hundreds of yea-fs; they are built solidly  of brick and    stone,    and    ordinary  burning does not level them to    the  ground as would be    the    case    of  American villages of frame    houses,  or   as   the   case   of   French    villages  after artillery    bombardment.     _But  when we rode through the deserted  -*nd  silent    streets    we    saw    what  ghastly hand had been at work. The  walls of the houses were only shells  concealing chaired ruins.     Not only  one village is like that, nor a dozen,  but every single one of the hundreds  that have been liberated has been put  to fire and sword, old men, old women, cripples, left to await the arrival of their own soldiers to care for  them; their ablebodied men taken into bondage, months ago, their young  women and girls herded along   with  thc retreating army to a slavery no  one dares think about without seeing  red.    And at every yillage the same  message  was left    behind    for    the  French  soldiers  when  they  arrived.  Translated it reads like this:  "You see what we have done  here.' Well, this is what is going to  happen all the way back to the  French frontier."  Is it any wonder that the French  soldier telling me this said between  clenched teeth:  "There is only one answer to that,  my .friend. Let them get down on  their knees and pray when the  French army crosses the Rhine.  We wili\be taking no prisoners on  that day."    .���������"'..      -  The aspect of the villages __ ia sad  enough, but the countryside . is  worse. I have seen so much of artillery destruction during this war  that I confess I have been rather  sated with ruins. A destroyed  church, a house ripped clean to its  foundations, is only another-example  of what I have seen dozens of times  before. But a countryside that has  so little left of it as that one I passed through- is a sight that made mc  want to cry and fight at the sar^e  time.' It has already been reported  how orchards have been destroyed.  I rathe/' expected that this had happened just along the roads by which  the army retreated. But with field  glasses I could see far in on every'  tide of every road for miles and  miles;  every farm is burned, , fields  destroyed, every garden and every;  bush uprooted, every tree sawed off  close to the bottom. It was a terrible sight and seemed almost worse  than the destruction of men. Those,  thousands of trees prone upon the  earth, their branches waving in the  wind, seemed undergoing death agonies before our eyes.  Everything gave its share to thc  blood lust of hate. Churches gave  their organs for their copper, also  thc brass walls of their altars, even  crucifixes upon ruined walls were  stripped down and torn asunder.  Wc passed through the remnant of  a place called Forquericourt. Au  old woman came to a broken door-  v-ay. We stopped to talk with her.  She smiled at the sight of. the French  uniforms of our officers. She lived on  a farm a mile away. The Germans  had passed in the night and burned  it so that she had come to Porquericourt to hide in the cellar of a  .friend. Her husband and brother.)  both old men, had been killed by the  Germans during the retreat, her two  sons led off to slavery the year before. One of them had come back,  but had been^seized again only a few  weeks before.  Her three daughters had been with  her at the farm the night that the  Germans retreated. They had fled  with her to the house of her friend,  from where they'saw their own'home  of a lifetime in flames. The girls  were 19,������21 and 24 years old. The  Germans had found them in Porquericourt and-had taken them away.  That was eight days before. She  had heard nothing of them since. All  other young women had. likewise  vanished .that night when the Germans went away.  She told her story simply in a low  ���������unfaltering voice. But she shuddered as she spoke of her daughters. I  said to. her:  "The next day after the Germans  had gone, how did it seem to see  French soldiers appear?"  She replied: "It was such a feeling  that it is impossible to describe, with  an emotion of joy, monsieur, that is  beyond words."  I asked another question:  "And how do you feel now���������husband, brother, sons and * daughters  all gone and you left here alone?"  I shall never forget the sight, of  her gray head.

Moreover,  the percentage of high Chinese officials who were at one time slaves  to opium was far higher than the  proportion which alcohol could claim  among the administrators and civil  servants of western ��������� countries, and  repressive measures adopted by the  government havc in all cases been  hampered by influential personal inclination such as would not be met  with elsewhere. Ridding the Celestial Empire of its favorite vice has,  therefore been a stupendous task,  greater and more wonderful even  than Russia's abolition of vodka; but  it has been accomplished after ten  years' of well planned work of a  thorough common-sense kind, to the  incalculable benefit and everlasting  credit of a gifted people.

Will Prove a Valuable Asset if Properly Protected  "There seems no just reason why  Northern Manitoba should not repeat to a degree the wonderful development iu wood-using industries  now taking place in Quebec. Manitoba holds splendid promise of. industrial growth in the northern forested areas with their fine water  powers. The trouble has been that  culture, and forestry has tagged behind like a poor relation."  This was a statement made by Mr.  Robson Black, secretary of the Canadian Forestry association, Ottawa.  "None of the provinces of Canada  is exclusively agricultural. Seventy-  fve per cent, of northern Manitoba,  above thc open prairie line will nev-!  er give crops other than timber.  There is little use bemoaning these  facts. We ought to turn them to  immediate commercial advantage.  "Manitoba's timber supplies havc  been going down hill for 100 years.  Unrestricted fires have periodically  cleaned out the storehouse of wealth  which would today have created a  vast industrial development parallel  to those of Ontario and Quebec.  Eighty-seven per cent- of the forest  area is now composed of young]  growth, or at best of timber under  eight inches diameter, such as is fit:  for small saw timber.  "The wrecked and ruined condition  of such vast areas of the provincial  forests prevents that immediate industrial development that otherwise  would have come. But forests in  most cases will recuperate, if fire is  rigidly kept out, and that is the reason the western legislatures have  been asked to take rneastttes against  careless conduct in settlers' fires.  the inheritance of the Hebrews prior  to the exile. One authority states  that "notwithstanding its small size,  Palestine presents a variety of geographic details so unusual as to be  in itself sufficient to mark it out as  a country of especial interest. The  bordering regions, moreover, are as  ���������varying as the country itself���������sea to  the west, a mountainous and sandy  desert to the south, a lofty steppe  plateau to the cast and the great  masses  of Lebanon  to  the  north."  For centuries Palestine has belonged to Turkey and the Turks  have divided it into three vilayets  and' sanjacs. The population, of  Christian Syrians, and a medley of  all Eastern religions, is estimated at  about one million. Thc land lies between Mesopotamia and Egypt, two  of the earliest scats of civilization  whicli have come into a strange cycle of prominence again. Palestine  has been the battlefield of Oriental  peoples from thc dawn of history.  In this it is like little Belgium, the  "cockpit of Europe," and the asso-nsf  ciation of the two lands just now  docs not call for the, exercise of  much thought: they are "evermore  linked in historic sufferings. Greeks,  Romans and Parthians among the  ancients held sway in Palestine, vxiji  in later centuries the Arabs, the  Turks and thc Crusaders controlled,  arid in recent times the Mongols overran it prior to their settlement in  Hungary'.  The geology of'the country has  been studied in some detail. As every  Bible student knows, its most remarkable feature is the Dead Sea,  fed by the Jordan, which itself runs  along a bed sixty-five miles long, ly  ing from 700 to 1,200 feet below the  level of the Mediterranean. ��������� As it  has no outlet except by evaporation  .its waters have become exceedingly  salty and thc legend of thc Dead Sea  fuiit has become proverbial. The  Jordan Valley was once rank in vegetation, but neglect and Arabs and  Turks havc led to its being now little more than thc jungle home ofj  lions.  Only one other geographic fact  need be mentioned: the district has  no port available for the shipping of  today except in the north, the onetime home of thc Phoenician merchants, skilled in dyeing and shipping  and to whom thc first discovery of  thc British Isles is attributed. Comparatively few Christians, Catholic or  Protestant, would know that the oniy  ed of the English Jews. A suscr*  eignty under Britain has been mentioned, but not officially, as soon a������  the Turks are ousted. There must  be^ everywhere among good, clean- -  living men and women, recognizant  cf what the world owes Israelisrn,  and possibly- even ih Germany, 3  feeling that the Turk is not the  rightful ruler there'. International  control has also been suggested.

The  Alberta Farmers' Co-operative Company count. on putting up 40 new  elevators in the province before the  1917 crop is ripe, these to reach from  the Peace River to the southern  boundary. Already 36 sites have  been secured and negotiations are  under way for the remainder. AU  railway lines are being treated impartially, and new structures will appear this year on practically every  branch of line in the province. The  cost of the elevators is placed roughly at $350,000 and the capacity will  run all the way from 35,000 to 65,-  000 bushels each.
