" "  ProHpects, too, for satisfactory  prices are far brsghte.1 than fov two  or thi*ee years back. What is expected to prove perfection almost in the  matter of distributing the berries  evenly over the prairie market seems  guaranteed in the selling arrangement that the-Wynndel selling agency  has arranged with the Mutual Brokers,  which latter concern will control tho  sale of UO per cent, of the whole B.C.  berry crop this year, and will be a  very deciding factor in the matter of  berries to be imported.  White Wyiiiidul alonf- wil! tnkc cava  of at least 100 pickers and helpers of  that sort just now it looks as If there  would be pickers enough to go round.  In addition to the 80 or so that will be  along from Nelson next week, many  are coining from Fernie and Gran  brook. In fact quite a number from  these two latter points are already  camped thoro now.  The yield this year will not be what  might be termed e bnnrjper one, but It  assuredly will he;a good average;crop.  TUB Biivinw man luul a lopl? over  quite a number of the ranchea on  Tuosday and taowhuro iu ^ poor- yield  to lie noted. All tho vIuoa are carrying a nico load of fruit, which, given  tho moisture and oiupshlne, should all  come to ripening at a good oii,o. So  far there are no abnormally largo  berries in flight anywhere, but slnco  the heavy .bhqwera of Saturday and  Cukuhivy Lhu Triut uow boiug g-aUici-od  has a oufflclcnt nlae to plcnao both (he  picker and grower atnd still bo popular  swlth the consumer.  About the only bad luck encountered thus far is the uppearanoo In flpoto  of runt, whioh will amount to a 15 per  coot, reduction In carly-scauon est!-  matos of yield on a few ranches. It la  tne more notleoablo on the Hutu,  Monrad Wigen being the "worst  iiofT'Ji*4ii-~-a matlor of at least 200 uratou  from 12,000 to 15,000 crates���������a figure  about midway beingthe prognostication of O. J^ Wigen^ who possibly has  kept closer tab on each: season's output and conditions than most other  growers there. In : connection . with  the higher price it is hoped hemes  will bring it should be A*emembered  labor is also higher priced:jihis year,  and experienced help is scarcei than'  usual.  Another noteworthy feature is that  this year the berries have all got out  of the blossom stage at pretty much  the same time which, Mr. Wigen  claims, foretells a short season���������four  weeks at the longest. Up till Tuesday hardly a dozen ranchers were  bringing in berries. Staples Bros.,  who are handling the Grady crop,  Paul Hagen, John Bathie ahd O. J.  WigeB bein** the sot-able onesb However, next week all hands will he  bringing them in in considerable  quantities, and carload shipping will  commence very early in tho week.  For the carload lots Jthe Go-Operative  are well equipped. Thoy havo a large  supply of ice with which to stook the  cars at shipping point* instead of, oa  last year, having them iced at Cranbrook before coming on to Wynndel.  With this ico availablb at tho loading  point a cortaln amount of procooltng  oan be dono���������borrlos being loaded  dirootly Into tho iced oar on arriving  ut tiie depot instead joi sitting around  a packing shed or the warehouse any  length of tlmo.  If wo got our usual hot wave very  oarly In July a squad of 200 plcfccra  and helpers will be none too many at  Wynndel at tho height! of the season.  Uri Brothors and Paul Hagen, .who  ���������u-u cvtu*.lh������|������ ou ubouL 1000 c-i'aicti  apiece can handle about IB pickcra  each, whllo Monrad Wigen has work  for at least 26, and O. Ji. *V\ Igon, with  an estimated crop around 4000 crates  will not worry If from 00 to 80 holpors  of this sort are available on his patches  ulouu.  Just how extensively tho nowly*ln-  stallcd preserving pluut will oiHuate  this Boato<������n depends on the weather,  too.

Miss fiayes, whom  the Women's Institute had here in  December, demonstrating ib domestic  science, will be in charge of the Wynndel preserving plant, and Under all  circumstances enough fruit will be put  up so as to enable Miss Hayes to give  good and sufficient instruction to a  number of the Wynndel ladies, so  that the plant can be operated solely  by local help in 101&  Wednesday* September 5th has  finally been decided upon as the date  for the annual 1017 fall fair of the  Crebtou Si District ^bmeh-s Institute,  which wiii.be held ha S^rei-s' Httall.

Bathlo, who have a considerable  quantity, and others who will have a  do/.en crates or more each.  An inoidont that gives still another  good idea of the prospective shipments  is the foot that Carl Wigen has contracted to Wit up and nail very elouo to  8000 orates for a number of Individual  ranchers, at a rate of 2 conts per crato,  we understaitd.

Use  of Printer's  Ink the  Oniy  Way  to Get Business  .Several dray loads of catalogues  were, recently received in Peterborough from mail order houses in Toronto, and the postmen were, for ai  few days almost worked to death delivering this bulky matter to the various addresses.

It is hard to estimate or even approximately guess iioav much money  is diverted from this city to Toronto  j and other points by this elass of business.

She knew  enough  to look after    the  well-condueting^of Oakcroft;  she appeared to advantage in the  Ellington  motor   tvus   and   the   Ellington     carriages,  and at thc  head  of her    own'  tabic; she could smile and bow prettily to  constituents, and, at  a pinch,  utter  a  word  or   two     of       graceful  platitude  on  opening  a       bazaar    or  turning a gold key in  the door of a  cottage hospital  or a  new  infirmary,  and the.   Ellington  family were    well  satisfied with her.     In  their opinion,  shc  had  every reason  to  be   satisfied  with  them and with herself.  But   Letty,   in   spite   of  her  pretty  ���������placidity,  had a  secret  cause  of dissatisfaction.    The   Ellingtons,    father  and  son,   Radical   enough   in   politics,  were essentially Conservative in their  private   notions   of  life.       And    one  notion which  they  shared and clung  to was that it was not at all necessary  to keep up a house in town.    During  the ten years in which Ellington Senior  represented  Ashminster    in     the  House of Commons, he had tenanted  a modest flat in Queen Anne's Mansions, sleeping in it while the House  was in session from Monday night to  Thursday  night;   every  Friday evening had seen him put off to Ashmin-  ���������fttei*  and home for a full-sized  week  end.     George   Ellington   had   followed his father's example, living a bachelor life for four or five days in the  same flat and returning to Letty and  Oakcroft for  the  rest of thc  week,  ft  seemed  to  him  a wise,  businesslike arrangement which worked well.  But Letty secretly resented it.'   She  read  all   tlte   fashionable    intelligence  in   the   newspapers,   and   shc   wished  to  live  in  town,  at  any  rate,  during  the season.    And before Hilda Trcs-  fcingbam  and  she  had  gone    far    on  (hen-   canvassing     expedition,     Hilda  had   wormed  Lctty's   secret     out     of  hcr,  and  v.;as .properly;   and     warmly  ���������ynipai heiic. ���������  "But  now  thai   .Mr     Ellington   is  a  "iinderstaniiinrj] v-'as a smudge on his cheek; his beard  "'"   lunrimmed,    his    hair    untidy���������  a sudden vision of him  Hilda  had  ���������etting grey and bent, and at last  moving about thc park outside as  nd; v-'oru down as any of the laborers on  the land.

The ��������� drivers had been warned  to expect to find a pint of water oi\  the road, and there Was a serious  prospect of water in the radiators  running out before thc return journey could be completed. "  Nevertheless, the southward run  was continued until the miieage was  192, when the cars reached the fringe  of the plateau in front of the plain of  Siwa. Along the edge of the plateau  they ran for eight miles, .and then  the water difficulty determined the  question whether further progress  could bc made.

Duelling- in the Air  Romance  of  Old   Pale   Into   Insignificance Beside Deeds of  Today  .This passage from a correspondent's report of the air fighting on the  British front is worth a little extra  atention:  /The. greatest fight yesterday, oddly  chough, was a drawn battle. One of  the British pilots met a brilliant German flier and for a full hour they  raanoeuvered in a most marvelous  manner without eitheir*being able to  b*.ing his gun to bear on the other.  They rolled, looped, twisted, deliberately stalled their engines and,  standing the machines on their tails,  slid backward through tlte air, but all  to no avail. It was probably the  311951 wonderful air duel the war has  yet seen. The British pilot reported  that several times hc felt sure he  would get his adversary between his  sights, but thc latter invariably wriggled out of the line of fire. The British flier himself was kept busy avoiding the German,- and once he had to  dive almost ' perpendicularly. The  combat did not break off until both  pilots had fairly exhausted themselves and their petrol.  The -world has grown familiar with  the tales of air duels, but probably  no one, unless lie is himself an-aviator, fully grasps the marvelous feats  which are being done every day. The  aeroplane has brought back the days  when knights went out before the  armies to engage iu single combat;  but what arc tlic deeds of those old  knights, which havc filled the pages  of romance for centuries, compared  with the duels of the modern aviators? What were the skillful horsemanship and swordmanship of the  ancient champions compared with thc  hunting of one another by bird-men  armed with machine guns, three mile;;  or more above the earth's surface?  Thc wildest imaginations of yesterday never conceived anything equal  to what is' actualy happening   today.  Americans After  Canadian Potatoes  Heavy Shipments    are    Sent    South  From Saskatchewan and  Thc scarcity of thc potato in tha  United States has led several wholesale firms there to send up scouts to  Western Canada in order to obtain  supplies of the now "elusive spud."  Some. 30,000 to 35,000 bushels which  havc been kept in storage all winter  by the farmers have been shipped  since April 1 from North Saskatchewan to Chicago and other American  centres. Northern Alberta also is exporting about 500 cars to the United  States. The price obtained is from  $1 to $1.25 a bushel. That the farmers of the west havc stored away  large quantities of potatoes -which'  they arc now preparing to release is  the concensus of opinion amongst  wholesale houses. ���������  ttX.t2im.im mm.   _. 9  w  mm  Popular This Season  Young Lady (with hopes)���������What  do you think is tlte fashionable*'-color  for 11 bride?

FRIDAY, JUNE 29  Some   word   of   commendation,  surely, is due. tbe C.P.B.  for its  change  of    passenger-train    time  which weKt into effect on this line  on Sunday.    The departure of the  eastbound   some   twenty   minutes  later than  formerly   will give the  soft fruit grower a  vefy  welcome  quarter of an hour more to get into  town   with  bis daily shipments���������  not long enough, perhaps, to enable  his force of piokers to gather very  many more orates before train time  each morning,  but  the added time  will help just that  much  the more  in eliminating  errors  in   shipping;  mistake that are more  or  less unavoidable in rush work of any sort.  But, perhaps, in the direction of  removing some of the temptation  to school children to hang around  the station is the change of time  on both west and eastbound trains  the more welcome. Under the old  times it was particularly convenient  for youngsters, as well as the senior  scholars, to make the station a  rendezvous, and while we are not  aware that they were ever a  nuisance there or any harm came  of their regular attendance at the  depot, still there is a good old-  fashioned idea that a railway  station is a place children should  give as wide a berth as possible.  And, while on the subject, it  might not be amiss to observe that  if some organized effort was made  by teachers, trustees and parents  to make the school nooning and  possibly an hour after closing a  little more attractive with outdoor  activities of some sort both the  children and the community would  be much the better for the effort.  the ladies' work end  prise and the Farmers Institute or  the Fruit Growers Union or the  Board of Trade���������or a representative  committee made up of members of  each���������getting together the horticultural and agricultural display.  And if individual ranchers want to  come in "also so much the better.  The bigger and more representative  the display so much the better for  the Valley.  As the effort will be largely for  publicity purposes we take it there  will be no objection to handing over  the net pooceeds for some patriotic  cause. Doubtless, too, under such  circumstances the ladies at Oats-  brook who are engaged in similar  work would take a greater interest  in the local effort, which would be  very much to the all-round advantage of the undertaking.  *$ohooS 04M2Q&  Hmwv  iv*.   ovatw������    */%������*pvovo   SIS  %I*M%*  PRESERVING TIME is almost here and, as usual, you maybe  needing some new containers.

We have it from the director  responsible that the show in the  neighboring town will offer quite  MibRtantial prizes in those classes  of fruit for whioh the Vaiiey is  noted, as well as in the vegetable  line. And as no fair is complete  without a good display of ladies*  work assuredly thoro will bo an  equally attractive lot of awards for  needlework, crocheting, knitting,  etc.  By a little energetic and organized effort there is no good reason  why our patriotic workers oould  not go aftor nil the prize money in  tho throe classes afore enumerated.

Creston scoool distriot for the  ensuing term is a very large order  indeed in times like these, and yet  there would seem to be no avoiding  asking the ratepayers meeting on  July 7 th to vote that amount.  Including unpaid salaries on the  year now closing, salaries and  incidentals for the coming year  along with improvements to the  school building which urgently  require attention will necessitate  an outlay of very close to $3500 it  is estimated.  If the old order of things is to  prevail at Victoria and only 75 per  cent, of the amount voted is forthcoming���������as has been tbe caaa ������oi*  two or three years back���������less than  $3400 will be available to the  trustees for the year's wrrk.  Of course money could be  borrowed, but as this can only be  had on ths personal note of two  trustees and all of the existing  board���������and two. of the three have  another year to serve���������have emphatically declined to execute a  loan on such terms, there seems to  be no dodging the increased sohool  vote, unless the legislature at its  August session passes some  remedial legislation, or authorizes  a sale of lands for arrears of taxes.  Looked at from any angle the  possibilities of the situation are  not pleasant to contemplate, and  closing-of the sohool is out of the  question. If there is anything to  the maxim about people doing  their best when they know the  worst   this year's   annual   sohool  of Sealers we  know of nothing on the market that  in tne nne  will give better satisfaction, and we know our prices will compare  faovrably with any sold locally.  General Merchant  Greston  except such work as is considered  absolutely necessary, very much to  the disappointment of certain  Liberals who imagined that the  getting in of the Brewster administration would ms&n an era of  plenty and prosperity for them,  with the need of doing very little  real hard work to get the equivalent of a day's pay. There are  two or three small gangs out in  each of the north, south and middle  sections of the riding."     '    .  meeting   should   be    a  interesting gathering.  decidedly  Wise nnd Otherwise  Local residents who are demand  ing a referendum on compulsory  military service might with equal  yavli'iivTucr, demand ������ referendum  on the recent doubling of Valley  taxes. There are more conscientious objeotors to the paying of  these itioroasod rates than thero are  to military servioe. And Promior  Brewster had no mandate from  those effected to legislate as he has.  Creston people who will remember Dr. Clark, the Bed Deer M.P.,  who campaigne here in the Liberal  interests in 1908,  will not be surprised to hear  that he is for compulsory military service  regardless  of what happens the political party  to whioh he owes allegiance. Speaking at a  conscription  meeting in  Toronto a few  nights ago he remarked:    "There  are people  who  tell   ns  that   there   should   be   a  referendum on the  subject.    That  means that behind the baoks of the  red-blooded volunteers  now in the  trenches you are going to ask those  who   haven't  gone  voluntarily  if  they will be good  enough  to  vote  by ballot that they be forced to go.  And while you are  going  through  that   process  the, boys   that   have  gone   are    being   decimated   and  strained further.

At  any  rate yo������ have got a line on - how  one member of Parliament feels."  of the second division, and Mr. Mac-  Kenzie, vice-principai, haye resigned,  and their resignations accepted at the  meeting this week.  The trustees also took up the salary  question at this meeting and will  recommend to the ratepayers at the  annual get together that the follow?  ing scale of pay obtain for the coming  year: Principal, $105 a month; vice-  principal $75. Division 3 $70, and  primary room $85. This will work  out the same as this year; the $5 a  month raise it is proposed to give  Miss Hardman will be saved on the  vice-principal's salary, which is cut  that much. For the information of  those who may want to figure out  total salaries for the year we would  point out that Creston school receives  a government grant on salaries of  $48.35 per month per teacher, the  local taxpayer only being assessed on  a matter of less than $2300 direct in  this last year, though for this year  there is a shortage on teachers'  stipends for four months.  If definite advice is had from the  government in time it is proposed to  publish a full statement of school  affairs in The Review prior to  annual meeting date.

Southampton, Out., (Special).���������  lhat rheumatism is caused by disordered kidneys and that Dodd's  Kidney Pills will cure it is again  proved by the case of Harold D.  Bertram, a young man well and favorably known here. He hael inflammatory rheumatism for two months.  Dodd's  Kidney  Pills  cured him.  "The doctor said my trouble, started  with    the    grippe," Mr.   Bertram  slates.     "My  hands  and    feet'   were  badly   swollen  and   the     doctor     did J  not seem to be doing me any good.*  My   grandmother,   Mrs.   G.   Grasscr,'  advised  me  to  take   Dodd's     Kidney  Fills.  1 took one box of them and I  haven't  been  bothered   since.     ]   am  clear  of  the  rheumatisth.'"  That  Mr.   Bertram's  trouble   came  11 om   his   kidneys   is   shown     by     his  other symptoms.  He had stiffness in  small   l'u> joints, was tired and nervous, and  Effective  Service   Rendered    in    the  War by the Small Contingents  You may also remember that the  first contingent of Canadians, consisting of 33,000 more or less raw  recruits^ was transported to England  in September, 1914, and was able to  participate in the fierce battle of  Ncuve Chapellc early in March, 1915.  From then till now at..\Timy Heights  the small Canadian contingent seemingly has never been out of range of  the German guns. It is needless to  recall what effective service has been  rendered by the small contingent? of  Australia and New Zealand or the  imperishable glory won by American  aviators and the American legion,  v.-ho, with Alan Seeger, havc had a  rendezvous with death "somewhere  in France." In the battle of millions thc small contingent of the  right sort has still continued to play  a decisive part.���������Chicago Herald.  One of the handicaps tQ greater  production is labor.

Lord Dcvonport, the British  food controller, suggests that the  British people ration themselves on  the scale of 4 lbs. of bread, or 3 ibs.  of flour for bread-making a week, 2  1-2 lbs. of meat and 3-4 lbs. of sugar.  The allowances of meat and bread  are liberal compared to the average  Canadian consumption.

Mr.  P.M. Callan, a well known business man in Coleman, P.E.I., says*.  "1 owe. my present health, if not lifo  itself, to Dr.  Williams' Pinlc Pills.  I  had always been an active man, anel  when -I began to run down in health  paid little attention to it as I thought  it   only  a  temporary  weakness.     As  lime, passed, however, I found myself  growing worse, and consulted a doctor,  who  said  that  I  was not    only  badly run down, but that my nervous  system  was badly  shattered.     I  lost  Mesh,  my  appetite was poor,  1  slept  badly and notwithstanding    thc doe-  tor's treatment grew so weak that I  had to leave  my business    and was  confined to the house. Time went ou  and  I was  steadily growing weaker,  and my  friends    were    all      greatly  alarmed   for   my   condition.     In   this  condition I was stronglv recommended  to  try  Dr.   William's'  l'ink  Pills,  and as the doctor's medicine, was not  helping me.   1   decided to  do  so.     J^y  the time  I  had uscd'Thrcc boxes ..'. X,  could tell lhaj. they were helping lU'e'j.  When  1 had taken eight boKes of the  pills   I   felt   able   lo   attend     lo     niy  business again, and  people were surprised  to  sec   nie  out.     1   continued  liie use of lhe. pills "until 1 had taken  twelve  boxes,  by  whicli   time  1  was  feeling as well as ever .1  did, and wast  being congratulated by all my friends  on   my  full  restoration  to health.     1  feel now that if I had used Dr.   Williams' l'ink Pills at thc outset T would  not   only   have  saved    much     money  .spent in  doctor's    bills,    bul     would  have  had  renewed  health sooner.

On    no  y occasion was it necessary to    divide  or to withdraw a motion because an  ~ agreement could not be reached.  The conference welcomed thc increase in the number of trade, com-  * missloners and recommends that the  governments concerned co-operate,  especially for the promotion or inter-  imperial trade.  P ^ It records thc view that the 1907  imperial conference resolution be  modified so as to permit the. full representation of India in all future imperial conferences, and that the assent  thereto   of  the  various   govern-  k incnts be obtained.  It prays that the king constitute by roval charter an imperial  graves commission on the lines proposed by the Prince of Wales to the  prime minister. Thc conference records its deepest appriciation of- the  French government's generosity in  allotting in perpetuity the land where  our men are buried, and It urges that  similar arrangements be made in thc  peace terms, with, all the allies, enemy and neutral governments, in Gallipoli, Mesopotamia, Africa and elsewhere.  The conference c-.xpresses the  opinion that a readjustment of the  important and intricate subject as to  constitutional relations of the component parts of the Empire is to  be dealt with-during, the war, and  should be discussed at a special imperial conference to be held immediately after the war. Thc conference  records further that such readjustment, while.- thoroughly preserving  all existing* powers of self-government and complete control of domestic affairs should be based upon a  full recognition . of the dominions as  autonomous nations of an imperial  commonwealth and of India as an  important portion thereof, should  recognize the  The announcement was made in thc  British house of commons'by Major  John L..

German  people feel themselves one with their  government. A government that controls all thc news sources is able to  control ideas to a very large extent.  There probably are few .Germans today who do not believe that the war  was forced on them, against the earnest wishes of the government, and  that thc government stands between  them and conquest by a horde of enemies .  One of these days the people are  going to learn of the frantic efforts  made by the rest of the world to  substitute arbitration for war in the  closing days of July, 1914; of the  readiness of Serbia to meet almost  impossible Austrian demands; of the  proposal of Sir Edward Grey  European conference; of the  of Austria to consent and the  of Germany to bring pressure to bear  en her ally.  When the real facts are understood it will be strange if an accounting is not called for by the people  who have had to bear thc brunt of  this war against those, who brought  it on.���������From the Kansas City Star.  * atft-UAAA BJt.

"When I was last in London," she  continued, "we were just clearing up  the Boer war. I then saw London  loose on a "joy ride." I saw- youths  playing football with silk hats outside the stock exchange and girls  dancing, in Trafalgar square. Every  where the war in those days was  looked.upon as a kind of picnic  "What a difference today! During  the past months I have sought, but  could find no trace of the gay  thoughtless London crowds I saw  then. London has become grimly  earnest. It is 110 longer watching a  war across wide oceans. It is in a  war itself. The Londoners feel they  are fighting, and they mean to win.  "In only a little West End circle  that you could draw with a compass,  I have found extravagance and foolishness. The circle is really not London at all, I think. It is a cosmopolitan village in Bohemia, entirely unrepresentative of your national life.  "The real London is working and  making daily sacrifices with strong  determination. ''  "You can sec it amongst the men  in thc city and in thc factories. They  arc working at high pressure, and for  once, although they are. British, they  are not complaining.  "And the women in the suburbs!  They have justified their little red  villages in thc matter of thrift. Every  suburban streets has sent-its quota of  men to the front, and in every suburban street I havc found women carrying on gladly and smiling.  "Thc whole extent and character of  women's labor I find has been changed by thc war. In no instances have  1 found that thc women of London  have lost or arc losi.-gstheir womanliness.

They Want Lots    Cast    and    Then  They'll Take Their Chances  as Indicated  Annesley Burrowes writes as follows in the Detroit Free Press:  That million^ of volunteer-* who  were to spring to arms over night,  according to the promise ot anti-preparedness congressmen, have not yet  sprung. In fact the United States  has not as ytt produced as many military volunteers as Canada produced  during the first weeks of thc war.  Excluding the French Canadians,  who have not responded io the call,  Canada has only a few more than 5,-  000,000 of people, while the United  States has about 20 times that number. Within two weeks'after the call  for volunteers, Canada had 32,000  men under arms, and more coming.  On the same basis, had Canada been  a nation of 100,000,000 it would have  produced in the same period 740,000  volunteers. Since the war began,  Canada with hcr 5,000,000 of available  population, has enlisted 400,000 volunteers and at the same rate, had she  possessed      100,000,000        population,  ,,.,-.,.1/4     J,o,.��������� mtm.t\t\.mft.ft 8 000 000     *rif  \*vja������jo.     txx.\ \.

But,-on thc other hand nobody would venture to suggest that  the young men of thc United States  are less courageous than the  men of Canada,.  The fact simply is that the  men of the United States are  progressive than the young men of  Canada. The Canadians stuck to the  old fashioned idea of volunteering.  They persisted in the belief that thc  state has no right to call ou its young  men to sacrifice life aud fortune for  ,the benefit of the whole nation. In  their opinion, Jt was the duty of thc  state to beg this favor of its people  and they thought the people retained  the privilege of ascending when they  felt, like it, or of telling the state to  go hang if they did not choose to  come to its aid.. In a w,ord, it never  occurred to the Canadians to raise an  army by any other means than the  volunteer method.  There are many vAmerican  who share thc Canadian view^  while these are not enlisting  night, by the million, as some  gressmen so confidently predicted,  they arc nevertheless enlisting in  considerable numbers. But the majority of our youth havc learned  much since 1914, and look at thej  matter of military service from a  new angle, They aro quite willing to  serve their country, but they do not  see why certain ones should spring  to arms while a lot of others who  owe the same duty, remain at home,  and make high wages or great profits out of the war in which the. volunteers make nothing but ou the contrary lose legs, blood, and health.  It is plain to them that the only-  fair way in which the. selection of  soldiers cau bc made is hy the drawing of lots, They are perfectly willing to take chances. If they draw a  job in a munition factory, or a chair  in an office, they will perform their  duty to the country in that capacity,  and if they draw a billet with a re foment, of. infantry, or a battery of artillery, they will go to France ,  elsewhere, and acquit themselves  Americans should.   ���������  Will Germans  Drive    the    Helpless  Belgians Against Allied Guns?  General von Bissing, the German  Governor of Belgium who has passed from this earthly sphere, was an  excellent specimen of the military  brute developed hy the Prussian sj-s-  tem. An American newspaper correspondent, Fred C. Walcott, in an  address in Minneapolis gave an illustrative account of an interview with  von Bissing. He said, according to  the Minneapolis Journal:  "I asked the German Governor of  Belgium, General yon Bissing, what  they -would do if the . British and  French withdrew their support of  the, Belgians and French who arc^,  within the German lines. He said?  preparations hud been made for tak.  ing the skilled workmen^ to Germany  to release Germans for war service,  and the others of both sexes % whoi  were healthy 'would be shipped io  Mesopotamia, where they would irrigate that country, and make it ready  for the German colonists to come.  The others, he said, old and young  and weak, would be herded together  and, with a firing squad behind them,  driven against the British and French  guns to be passed through and cared  for by those Avho were really responsible for their care. Belgium would  then be peopled with Germans and  the question of Belgian liberty would  be settled forever."  This interview took place some  months ago���������before the. capture of  Bagdad by the British, which spoiled  part of von Bissjng's ideal.

Britain faces the necessity of holding  out until the new crop is harvested.  After wliich she will get a long respite because the interned German  ships and new ships will become the  dominant factor in the transport  situation.  Nevertheless Great Britain is getting a much needed scare about the  food situation. Great Britain and  France are moving heaven and earth  to show such a military preponderance, as will overcome German confidence based on the success of the  submarine catnpaign.  Spain and Scandanavia confront a  black prospect because their . eco-  noiiiiC-resources arc iess au*e io cof^;-  with the conditions, and the United  States must- henceforth co-operate,  with the Allies, depriving the neutral  countries of supplies so that Great-  Britahi and France can be fed first.  Parisians have begun to get  meatless dinners under a government  order forbidding beef, pork, lamb  poultry, game, and similar dishes at  the evening tne.al, except on Suudy.ys  and holidays. Fish is so scarce and  high that nearly everybody is a veg  etarian-now.  :  Eggs in various stages were consumed- in great quantities, but the  indications are that their sale will  be restricted, as they are. needed for  wounded soldiers, children and aged  people. Besides, there is great shortage of them.  The midday meal is the. only  one at wliich meats may.be served.  The French seldom havc anything  |but coffee and bread for breakfast.  Despite the short notice of meatless dinners, thc chefs of the leading  rc&taurants had prepared various  tempting dishes made of disguised  vegetables. The Italian restaurants  ln.d big crowds for macaroni and  other filling dishes, and Brunier's���������  celebrated fish place���������was turning  people away at 7 o'clock.  More and more "tlteWar councils  in session at Washington arc crystalling into a monumental campaign  to feed the Allies. Finance and shipping problems are coming to bc considered comparatively collateral,  though of course, vital.  It is taken for granted that it will  bc the. policy of thc Allies, after  America has made hcr preliminary  contribution to hcr fighting sister nations in men, money, food and snipping, to entrust the United States  with control of certain phases .if the  war. That food will be one of the  problems left entirely in American  hands is believed certain.  This will mean that one man, or  small group of men, will bi named  by President Wilson to dominate the  production and distribution of all  food in the United States.  It is deemed probable that thi*  flop will involve the formation of an  inter-Ally Food Commission, com.  prising a director-general for each  nation.  The Austrian Emperor's Prayer  Austria made this^ war, and urged  on by Germany, insisted upon having it. A few years earlier she seized  Bosnia and Herzegovina, rcgardlesi  of thc risks of causing a great war.  at that time. In 1912 she sought to  induce Italy to support her in war,  but Italy refused. In 191,4 she set ouv  to overthrow and absorb Serbia,  knowing that her action would bring  on this great war, unless Enrop**, foi*  a second time, looked on and allowed  her to make conquest as she willed.
