B. Cuming  succeeds G. Hendren as president,  with-T. B. Goodwin re-elected vice-  president, and F. K. Smith succeeds  himself as secretary and treasurer.  Between appearances for special  occasions and furnishing music for  the vario-se dances for the yerr past  the band has had quite a prosperous  season, at the same time the earnings  have been used fco -good advantage in  the purchasing of some new instruments as well as purchases to keep  their supply of music up fco date.  During the year the band earnings  were in fche neighborhood of $420  with an expenditure of $410. Of this  latter amount $133 has been expended  on new instruments, $150 on new  music, hall rents, advertising, etc..  etc., and $120 on the orchestra. The  money paid fche orchestra is for services rendered at all dances���������the  orchestra members getting 50 per  cent, of the net receipts from all  dances whether given by the band or  other organizations.  The most pressing need at present  is an outfit of uniforms for the members, and in the purchase of which  financial assistance wiii be asked from  the citizens. With bandsmen, just as  wurely as with individuals, fche apparel  oft proclaims the man, and after three  years of service during which time  citizens have never been directly asked  for a solitary contribution, the band  look forward with confidence fco a  generous response when the subscription list comes round.  Although several of the old-time  members have been missing during  part of the year, so far there has been  no difficulty in filling all vacancies,  and right now there is a player for  j'very instrument the band has  available.  and was immediately accepted hi its  ranks. Getting to fingland in November he had but a short month of  it there before he again volunteered  to fill up the ranks of the 54th, which  had suffered heavily in the fighting in  France.. He got his ..first taste of fche  trenches on January 29th, and went  along unscathed until fche heavy  fighting afc VimyRidge early in April,  being killed in action otr April 9th.

Things are rather  quiet in the Sloean, the shortage of  water seriously crippling mining  operations this winter.  Victoria, B.OMMay &���������J.H^gohofield,  M.P.P., has fcaken up witii-iMaswell-  Smifch, chairman of the agricultural  credits board and probable chairman  of fche new land settlement fcpard, the  question of fche reclamation and development of the Kootenay flats in  the Creston district.  Mr. Schofield has informed Mr.  Smith of the advantages of the scheme  in a general way and of the. particular  attractions of the project from the  viewpoint of the community settlement of those of the returned soldiers  who desire to go on fche land-'  During fche debate on the<address in  reply to fche speech from- the throne,  Mr. Schofield went afc some length into  the possibilities of the reclamation  scheme. He pointed out that one of  the essentials fco a successful land settlement plan for soldiers was that  sufficient land should be available in  one location for building up a community settlement. The Kootenay  flats, he said, had this advantage as  they contained 40,000 acres of land. In  addition, the land, , when reclaimed,  would be of the most fertile and productive character, it would be near to  good markets, it was in a climate  whose merits had been proyed by the  agricultural development of the rich  Creston district nearby, while the construction of the necessary roads would  cost little.  Mr. Smith has told Mr. Schofield  that he is very favorably impressed  with the outline of the scheme as  presented by fche member for...'Trail  and fchafc he will obtain a jeopy of the  report, of&.^':"M^e'nvU'o^,an"e;nf^'aeerr  who was employed toy the late government to report upon the feasibility of  fche reclamation scheme.

Reclamation of  Hats Explained  The biggest attendance for many  months was in evidence at fche May  meeting of the Board of Trade on  Tuesday night, over those deliberations  President Henderson was in charge.  Among a considerable batch of  communications was one from A. J.  Kent, the Bonners Ferry representative in the Idaho legislature, notifying  that the present sitting of Congress at  Washington would be passing a vote  of ,.$25,000,000 for drainage works in  the Unifced States, a^d that in order  to get a large enough grant for such  work in Idaho it would be well to  place before congress eyery possible  detail in connection with the Koote-  day Flats reclamation project. On  receipt of Mr. Kent's letter the board  got in touch with John Keen. M.P.P.,  ! and the proyincial minister of lands,  j urging them fco send Mr. Kent all  ; possible data, and assurance has been  j received that Mr. Kent's request will  j have immediate attention.  On the reclamation project the  board was favored with an exceptionally lucid and concise statement prepared by Mr. Kobfc. Sfcark from a  number of engineers' reports od the  subject, kindly supplied by the provincial government. Engineer  Muerling's report received special  attention, and showed that were  reclamation effected almost 60,000  acres of land on both the Canadian  and American sides would be rendered  available for cultivation, and according to the analysis made of the soil  some seven miles below Bonners  ouestionl of the in������-  wrts*shi������*"ed to ��������� Ferry there is no  mense,,fertility  of  lafctejtivpatrt. ;������f  Miioe &2dBs*&  Mrs. Bartholomew and children of  Nelson are spending a few days with  friends here this week.

Creston callers this week were  Mesdames Aspay, Dennes aud Carn,  who were to town for the Red Cross  meeting on Tuesday.  Sirdar was favored with twochnrch  services thiB week. On Monday  morning Father Kennedy of Cranbrook celebrated mass in the school  house, nnd on Tuesday night Rev. J.  S. Mahood took the muulhiy English  Church service.  Mr. and Mrs. R.

The  little fellow was taken with bronchial  pneumonia just after getting over a  seige of measles and the combination  proyed too much for his none too  rugged constitution.

From the limited survey he was able  to make in the time alotted for the  work he places** the estimated cost  under $3,000,000���������$45 an acre to be  exact, and figures that with reclamation successfully accomplished these  lands should in most .cases sell readily  at $200 an acre.  At tho close of Mr. Stark's address  he was accorded a very hearty vote of  thanks by the board for the care and  trouble he had gone to in compiling  the statement, from the mass of  documentary evidence adduced by the  engineers. A spirited discussion followed and the members one and al)  went home- with a very .much better  understanding of fche reclamation  scheme, its probable cost, and benefit  to the Valley.

Lady Acrise  rushed back to Rcdj.rrange Hall with  congratulations, and incidentally,  with her contribution to the elucidation of the  mystery.  She was able to explain the letters  of Captain Silcott to his wife, and  the secrecy upon which the blackmailing Webling and his emissaries,  Paddon and Mrs. Gaiiick, had worked.

"He must have got upstairs���������knot*-',  ing all about the house from Rathbone's descriptions, and he must have  stolen some of your clothes, and  worn them when he wheeled the body  out into the wood that same night,"  cried he triumphantly.

"Some of the out-door people saw  this wretch���������in your clothes, and,  well, you can guess what they  thought."  "But it was absurd, wasn't it? How  could a woman do it? Carry such a  thing out, and dig a grave, and all  that?"  "Would it have been more wonderful, do you think, than what did happen? Whenever a murder is committed, and the murderer is not discovered immediately, everything connected with it seems utterly incomprehensible. - Remember that."  knew   anything   about   it,  kept     their     knowledge  themselves.  Lady Acrise, who was, like most  women, phenomenally reticent on  some points while unnecessarily cont.  municative on others, had never divulged the secret even, to hcr niece,  who had, indeed, never pressed hcr  on the subject.  Now   that   some   intimation   of   the  circumstances  had   to  be made  pub-  so-   He, care was taken that, for obvious  reasons of state, as little as  possible  should be known on this point.  Long before the time arrived foi  the'rascal to take his trial fo.  the murder of Rathbone, the circumstances of the case were known far  and wide, and the country was astir  with the affair.  The revulsion of feeling on the part  of the people of thc neighborhood  when they learned how they had misjudged poor Daphne was so great  that it took a most embarrasing  form.  Day after day a stream of carriages  passed up the drive, visitors poured  in, condoling, congratulating, apologizing,   so  that  both    Sir   Penywern  and his wife scarcely had a moment  to themselves.  Foremost among the callers was  Rosina, Duchess of Shcppcy, who, to  do hcr justice, abased herself with a  good grace, and embarrassed poor  Daphne with thc magnificence aud  the grandeur of her apology.  Thc trial, to the relief bf Sir Penywern and his wife, was soon over,  lhe circumstances were made clear  by the prosecution; the plot by which  the two tramps, one of them an old  burglar, and the other a clever forger only recently out of prison, had  made money out of the casual discovery of the old letters., was unravelled, and bit by bit the chain of evidence was rendered complete enough  for there to bc no hesitation in gtv-'  ing the verdict against the prisoner,  Webling, who made confession at the  last.  Redgrange. Hall was not deserted  bjr its owners; but Sir Penywern and  tj.c-.   -jx-jfrfj   it-onr   -Jjjrojr   on   o    ti j^isr   Iinnc-V-  moon, and when they came back to  their old home, such changes had  made in thc library and the  wood at thc back-of the house that  every trace of them as they had existed during the reign of terror suffered by poor Daphne, had been wiped out as if they had been part of  an evil dream.

THE  END  Good Going '  A Northumberland county (On=>  Virio) man says in part: "One of our  good old cooks said the other days in  reply to a query about the nature of  the forthcoming dinner. 'Men' he  said, 'you don't seem to understand  army cooking. We just throw everything into the pot and offer, up a  prayer.

Our progress in fifty  years  may  be  illustrated    by a  few  figures.      Population    has    increased  fiom less than three and a half millions to eight millions, as estimated.  Postoffice  savings   deposits  have  increased from less than a quarter of a  million   to   forty  millions.    Trade   is  more than ten times as great as at  confederation-       Railway    mileage is  sixteen times as great.    Wheat    exports have    increased    sixty    times,  manufactures    have    increased      five!  times.    All this, of course, Refers to  material growth.    Many things   cannot be expressed in figures-  Yet  without   this   material  grow-th  Canada might have been a source of  weakness and anxiety to the rest of  the  empire,   instead  of  a  source   of  confidence and strength.

But in the meantime wt  had to learn that we gravely underestimated the English as a nation* Wc  know now that our real enemy sits  tupon the islands, and that he will  ruthlessly employ every means to  bring its to the ground. Thc English  will fill all gaps ajid store up new  and colossal supplies, which will enable . them to expend many times  more ammunition than they havc now  at their disposal- What we have to  do is to turn all Germany into one  colossal munitions factory.  Mrs. Felix Ascah Found no Relief in  Doctors or Hospital Treatment, but  Dodd's Kidney Pills Brought a  Speedy Cure.  Haldimand, Gaspe Co., Que. (Special)���������Mrs. Felix Ascah is telling her  numerous friends here that her complete recovery from kidney disease  from which she suffered for years is  due to the splendid work of Dodd's  Kidney Pills.  "My trouble started from a strain,"  Mrs. Ascah says, "i suffered for  years. I was attended by a doctor  and wTas also treated at a hospital. I  suffered from stiffness in the joints,  I had a bitter taste, especially in the"  morning, and at times was subject to  severe headaches- I had a pressure  and often a sharp pain at the top of  my head and my skin itched and  burned at night.  "Neither from the doctor nor at the  hospital did I get any permanent relief. Then -L' started to use Dodd's  Kidney Pills and two boxes did me  so much good I feel like recommending them to everyone who has kidney  trouble."  Dodd's Kidney Pills cure sick kidneys. Cured kidneys strain all the  impurities, all the seeds of disease,  cut of the blood. That makes good  health all over the body. That's why  those .cured are so enthusiastic in regard to Dodd's Kidney Pills.  Proved  "Is your wife economical?"*  "Very.    Look at jthe    clothes  that  shc makes ine wear."

ICKLY BABIES  Canning; Whale Meat  Flesh of the Whale Now Being Introduced to the American Table  Fresh whale meat is being sold in  the markets at Los Angeles, while at  Long Beach a fish cannery is preparing and packing it  for general  consumption.    This is the first time,    so  far as can be learned, .that the flesh  of the whale has been introduced for  the American table-    In Japan, however, it forms an important part    of  the diet for the poorer classes, and in  New Zealand large  quantities  of    it  are canned for South Sea    islarrders.  A humpback whale will yield as much  as 80,000 lbs- of meat, in addition to  blubber, oil, and bone.-   The flesh is  of coarse  grain,  and when  prepared  has_a distinctive flavor that is somewhat similar to that of venison.    But  besides being palatable, 98 per cent.  of the material it contains is digestible, a ratio that is 7 per cent* higher  than ordinary beef.     The    adversion  which persons in this country usually  manifest when  attempts    are    made  to_ encourage    the* consumption      or  things  known  domestically    but not  popularly looked upon as foods, has  not been experienced    in    California  with whale meat.    A few weeks ago  five tons of the meat was retailed in  Los Angeles at 14 cents a pound.  No Asthma Remedy Like It. Dr.  J. JL).

Right at Heart  While collectively Creston Valley  citizens all too often fail to measure  up to their full statin e on very  many occasions of local public importance, in the presence of the  grim reaper our people give mute  bnt striking evidence of the truth  of the old saying that one touch of  sorrow makes the whole world kin.  This little appreciation is due the  Valley people in general, and those  of Canyon City in particular, in the  large and representative turnout at  Sunday's funeral, and the many  kiudly acts shown th/ se plunged  into deepest mourning r/nrougri the  passing of the young son of one  who heard the call of empire, and,  in a sphere of activity in which he  can help to the best advantage, is  now well on his overseas journey  to do his bit in ending for all time  an enemy of common humanity  In sections such as the Creston  Valley,a at any rate, general commendation will be given the  minister of education for the  amendments he is having made  this session to the Publio Schools  Act.    These are two in number.  1. In regularly organized school:  districts a school must be main ��������� j  tained where   there   is   an average'  attendance of eight pupils, and in  the case of assisted schools an  average turnout of six pupils shall  necessitate the maintenance of a  seat of learning.  2. Whenever the trustees of any  district municipality school district  decide to unite two or more schools  in that district for the purpose of  establishing a central graded school  with  at   least   two    teachers,    and  j providing for the conveyance to  j and from each school of the children  I living   at a   considerable distance,  j there   shall   be  granted   from  T>.- . ��������� ���������   , ! provincial    treasury  Despite real or   imaginary social \ ,.  and domestic differences iu the hour  of stress and   keenest   of ail   aittk*  tions,   personal   likes   and   dislike-s  disappeared as   a   mist   before the  rising sun.

Hustie, Not Worry  The change for   the   very  much  better in the   weather is beginning  to h.ive its effect in other directions  than   stimulating   growth   in   tree  and plant life.    In fact were a supply of first-class   pasture  available  real out and out   pessimists   would  be about as scarce in the Valley as  are German ships on the high sefis.  And the thing  seems   to   be   infectious.    R. M.   Winslow, provincial   horticulturist,   who   has   just  completed   a little tour of the fruit  districts   aa    far     inland    as   the  Okanagan, is out with  the   prediction that our soft fruits   will find a  ready sale, and that good distribution with fair   prices  may   be  expected for  our  early   apples up to  thc   end    of     the    Mcintosh    lied  season���������after     which '  date     the  situation    will    probably    t.ake  on  some pretty  perplexing conditions.  And down   on the prairie, where  the weather hah   been as unpromising as in B.C.,   the papers,   at any  rate,   are   not    talking  blue    ruin.  Tim Medicine   Hut    News   recalls  tlmt hack in 19011, on   the first day  uf   May.    tin*   rivers   of   Westoni  Canada     wen*   frozen   over,    and  conditions were more   wintry than  th������*y were there during April.    Yet  IU00 produced a bumper crop.  However, while tliere is no immediate need for excitement or  alarm, now that excellent weather  is here not n   minute's time should  fees   to   take    the    higher    public  school classwork in town.  The fixing of the minimum of  attendances at the figures above  stated is surely striking the happy  medium as to when a school is or is  not a necessity in a community.  Too much attention cannot he  paid these days to seeing to it that  reasonable opportunity is afforded  every child to at least obtain a  good public school education, in  the rapid attainment of which the  well-graded school of four or five  rooms is a sure and certain aid.  Hein Agriculture  ed in the bill���������and the exegencies  of the situation would at least  seem to justify such unprecendent-  ed and far-reaching action���������B C.  is in for agricultural development  both by state aid and state example  on a scale that is like to demonstrate  the fallacy or otherwise of about  all the worth while theories as to  what is just exactly needed not  only to attract men on to the land,  but more especially to keep those  on the farms who through early  associations and training naturally  belong there, and have the best  possible chance of succeeding at  agricultural effort.  British Columbia, more or less in  common with the other provinces  of the Dominion, realizes that  agricultural production will prove  the surest method of balancing our  books, and meeting the liabilities  cre.ited by the war, and despite  monetary stringency no time should  he lost in going far afield to bring  agriculture to the high place it  should have in any economic  scheme of things.  To provide for returred soldiers  our only hope lies in the direction  of farm development. As things  are to-day it is hopeless to expect  these veterans to even atternp  agricultural pursuits, bnt with the  powers conferred on this special  commission, and the financial backing it is proposed to give it, it is  beyond us why a system of community farming cannot he developed that will give these soldiers the  amenities, amusements, and sooial  life of the town, pay thorn reasonably attrative wages, and in the  not too long run prove a financial  8U0008S, as well as givo a considerable impetus to tbe industry.  It is not so muoh the lack of  high wages whioh makes men and  womon leave tho farm, as the lack  of sooial life and amusements. It  is not so much the fear of hard  work that makes tho returned  aoldicr henitato about taking up a  an all important industry) the hour  has struck.  Another bit of proposed legislation that, if wisely administered,  should mean very much in the  development of our basic industry  is the act to "Promote Increased  Agricultural Production," which  the minister of agriculture is  asking the legislature to pass.  In addition to assisting individual fanners by way of loans at a  low rate of interest in a matter  that is just a little more businesslike than the Bowser government's  "Farm Credits Act," the new  measure seeks powers for the  commissioners who will administer  it, subject to thc sanction of tho  lieutenant-governor-in-oouncil, a-  mong other things:  (������i) To take over from the Crown and  to purchase from or obtain by ������x-  chnnf***. with pvivatu owners lands  within the Province for agricultural  purpoHi'H.

Instruction was iniparted to  the Doctor by Charlie Archer, and by  sundown on the Sabbath the genial  medico had progressed so far as to  be able to navigate without seriously  endangering the lives and limbs of  the natiyes. Late on Tuesday afternoon Dr. Read's joy wagon tore off  the straight and narrow path oi JB  Avenue and went through" the iU. JJ.  Tvviss fence, plunging over a five-foot  embankment, thence onto the Twiss  family lawn, winding, up the^proceed-  ings by attempting to climb up one of  Mr. Twiss's fayorite apple trees. There  it anchored. No one was hurt, and  the injuries to the car were of a  minor nature.

Thrifty householders _ who are  looking for something to assist  them in making their supply of  potatoes last until the new spuds  are available will find rice the ideal  substitute insofar as strength-giving qualities are concerned.

Victims Can Cure Themselves With  Dr. WilUams' Pink Pills  With the coming of March people  who are  afflicted    with    rheumatism  begin to have unpleasant    reminders  of   their  trouble.       The    weather   is  changeable���������balmy and springlike one  day, raw,-cold and piercing thc next.  It is such sudden changes of weather  that  sets  the pangs  and ..tortures  of  rheumatism, lumbago and sciatica pjo  ing.    But it must bc borne in mind  that    although    weather      conditions  start the pains, the trouble is deeply  rooted in the blood, and can only be  cured through the blood-    All the lotions and liniments in the world can't  cure rheumatism.    Rubbing may seem  to  ease  the pain while  you arc  rubbing, but there its value ends.    Only  through the blood can you cure rheumatism.      That's  why Dr-  Williams'  Pink   Pills   have   so   many  thousands  of cures of this trouble to their credit.    The new, rich blood which  they  actually make drives out the poisonous acid and-rheumatism is vanquished.    Among    many     sufferers    from  rheumatism who have been cured by  this  medicine is    Mr-   C.  H.  McGce,  freight shed foreman for thc G.T.R.  at  .Vetorboro,    who    says:���������"In    the  course  of my work  I  am    naturally  exposed to all kinds of weather, with  the  result that  about  two  years  ago  1   contracted  rheumatism   which   settled   in  my  legs.

The battle was joined at a height of  9,000 feet. , The German fleet consisted of at least 38 Fokkers and  Rumplers, while there were only 30  British machines-  The issue hung long in' the balance, j  The first to be put out of action was  a Fokker. It whirled giddily for a  moment, burst into flames, and then  crashed to the ground. Soon after-  v ards a British biplane was badly  hit- Next two German aeroplanes  came to grief at a short distance  from their line. The British airmen  displayed very great superiority and  in the end remained masters of the  air, pursuing the enemy with the utmost daring.

HEAD     OFFICE:   TORONTO  LORD SHAUGHNESSY TELLS WHAT CANADA NEEDS  Suit the Work for the Man, and Give the Man Skill for his Work  ���������Brains and Boldness Required in the Development  Oi the Problem of Placing the Returned Men  Lord Shaughncssy may be best  known now as President of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company.  When the inner history of the war  comes to be written he will be still  better known as one of the effective  organizers of victory. From the beginning he threw his energy, and directed the energies of many of his  staff, into the national cause-  When asked for a statement as to  Canada's greatest needs at this critical time, especially in making arrangements for returned soldiers.  Lord Shaughncssy said in part:  The return of our soldiers will be  a tremendous opportunity for the  country. Shall we seize it, or bungle  &nd miss it? That will lie the test  of the quality of Canadian statesmanship.  We havc always wanted men to  develop the country. Well, there  tl-ey are, or will be���������ready to our  hand- Immigration is desirable, but  uncertain. These men of ours will  come home as a matter of course.  They will not come back exactlv  the same as they were, but some people have an absurdly exaggerated idea  of thc change we may expect. The  slacker has been improved by discipline, and the downright steady man  has certainly not been turned into a  slacker.    Taken as a whole, the men  But even w-hen that is done, the  great majority of the men will have  to be provided for in other kinds of  work. I should like to see thousands  of them, not now highly skilled, given special training to equip them with  the skill they lack- I am sure it  w ould ��������� pay the country to give it  them. <  We must use brains and ingenuity  in forming our plans for doing the  best that can be done for���������and with  ���������the returning men.  Good people often say to them,  "Nothing is too good for you." It is  easy to talk, like that, in vague genr  eralities- But we have got to come  down to particulars, and find out in;  detail what is best for thc men���������ye^,  and for each particular man. with his  individual capacities and aptitudes.  By doing that very thing for men  returning disabled, the Military Hospitals Commission. has given the  country a splendid lead. This lead  should be followed in dealing with  the mass of men returning later on.  The benefits of this system should  finally be extended to our people generally, so that every "boy on leaving  school should be directed and helped  into the occupation that he can do  best in���������and trained specially for it,  whenever that is hy any means possible.    In some cases, of course, it Is  The Woman on the Farm Deserves  Conveniences and is Gradually  Getting Them  Never in the history of The Farmers' Advocate have so many inquiries  come to this office regarding water  systems and sewage disposal contrivances for country homes. In this issue is published an article dealing  with sewage disposal on the farm.  Much of this information has been  published in these columns on previous occasions, but we are pleased  to meet the demand for more information on a subject which interests  such a large percentage of our clientele- There is a hopeful sign in the  inquiries. Conditions in the farm  homes are improving. All. too often  the- farmer has bought new machinery  and implements to lighten his work,  forgetting about the ceaseless toil of  his wife. Too often, also, has thc  barn been a model of handiness while  the house was anything but such.  Many a man had running water in his  pig pen while the only running w7ater  in the house, where his wife toiled  without ceasing, was in the attic  where the roof leaked and the water  soaked through and spoiled thc paper in the front room- The woman  on the farm deserves conveniences  and she is gradually getting them.  Running water and sewage disposal  are important in farm home comfort,  and they are not costly beyond the  reach of the farmer.���������Farmers' Advocate.

But  that will be only a passing phase.  I take for granted that the present  f system  of  getting    ex-soldiers     em  ployment will be greatly improved  and* developed, for it is barely able  to place the few thousands already  with us. But even if the system is  so improved that every man'returning after the war gets some sort of  a job, it does not follow that we  shall have any great cause to boast.  We shall havc achieved a negative  success; but we must aim at something higher, a more positive success.  There is too much haphazard employment, at the best of times; and  with a flood of men having to be  placed simultaneously there is_ a  greatly increased danger of shoving  them into places without enough regard to suitability- Putting round  pegs into square holes docs not pay.  Having s(ill some time to prepare,  there will be no excuse if we do not  devise schemes of employment which  will use a high percentage of each  man's capacity, instead of a low percentage.  The man and his ejrtployer aud the  country at large will all gain by this.  Thc man can make most by work  that he is interested, in, and has skill  for.

The Commission, I notice, gives  men a good deal of occupation and  instruction, while they are still under  medical treatment. In fact, these occupations forni part of the curative  treatment���������a really valuable part. But  they also help to develop a man's  technical skill- Often they reveal asr  tonishing talents which even thc man  himself did not know hc possessed.  This skill is developed, and these  talents arc discovered and trained, as  they never -would have been if the.  men had not become hospital patients. It is a striking case of getting  good out of evil. ,  I -am not surprised' to find _ that  nany returned soldiers, simply  through the training they have had in  hospitals, have gone out to take positions better than they ever occupied  before*  An extra,, privilege is given to men  who arc so incapacitated that they  cannot takc up their old line oi work.  They arc given special training for a  new occupation, in technical colleges  or otherwise. And they arc .helped  to choose tho occupation most suitable and profitable for them, by the  advice of medical and vocational experts. Thc cost of the training is  paid for them, and so is even their  maintenance and that of their families, for as long as the training lasts  ���������and-a month longer-  It is an admirable system, and I  should like to see every man seizing  thc opportunity who has it offered to  liim.  Vast Nitrate Deposits in Chile Available  to  Entente  Allies  In an area of 350 miles of arid, barren desert iu Chile lies the nerve centre of the great war. If an unfriendly power had held control of this desert tract, the war would have ended  long ago with the crushing of "the  Entente Allies. It is the famous  Chilean nitrate region.  Wiliani Howard Russell, a famous  English war correspondent, wrote as  long ago as 1889: "Without British  control of the sodium nitrates of  Chile the map of the world would be  very different today."  Germany now does not need to depend upon the Chilean nitrate deposits, for the German chemists are  making synthetic nitrogen. However, for six months before the outbreak of the warjn 1914 Germany had  been receiving enormous shipments  of sodium nitrate from Chile. It is  estimated, in fact, that Germany had  on hand 1 million tons of nitrate in  August, 1914.  Some engineers say there is enough  nitrate in the Chilean desert to supply the world for two hundred years.  There are about fifty thousand Chileans employed in the industry. Nothing grows in the region about the ni-  tiatc deposits; it is a dead land. To  all appearances thc Chilean nitrate  towns are like thc old time Western  Atnerican mining camps. A great  deal of liquor is consumed in the districts and consequently there is considerable lawlessness.  North and H������*\rvcy, two British adventurers, originally owned the nitrate concessions, but now the. Chilean government controls most of the  valuable tract. Chile fought a war  with Fcru for thc northernmost part  of the nitrate beds and won.

Lack of Tonnage and Loss of Vessels Alarming Fish Exporters  Newfoundland's fish exporter's arc  disturbed over the difficulty of obtaining enough vessels to market  their product this year. The fisheries constitute the main industry oi  the colony, and in normal times a  large fleet of schooners and small  steamers is engaged throughout the  autumn aud winter in carrying to  Europe and South America fish  caught in the spring and summer  and cured by being pickled and dried  in the sun. The vessels trading principally with Portugal and Spain, Italy and Greece, bring back cargoes  of  salt  from   Sicily and Spain.  Until recently thc war has not seriously interfered with this trade except for a temporary shutting off of  thc Greek market, by the Entente  blockade. Since Janl 1, however, six  fish-carrying vessels havc been torpedoed off the Portuguese coa.st and  in thc Mediterranean. Fishing  agencies here havc purchased all ves.  I sels at present available, but as the  British admiralty has requisitioned  many steamers formerly used in the  trade there is a growing shortage of  tonnage.  The trade will require at least 35r  (K)U tons of salt to cure this year's  catch of fish. Thus far only enough  fillips have been secured to bring in  9,000 tons.
