If'  Mrs.Burgeof Fassafern, B.C., and  Miss BHa Ryckman, Cranbrook, were  visitors with Mrs. W.- S. Ryckman  this week. Mrs. Burge, we hear, will  spend the win ter. with her mother at  the "ranch.  Percy Truscott is leaving this week  for Coleman, Alta,, where he has^  secured a situation for tha winter.  Biily is also working at the same  point, and Mrs. Truscott will go later  to be with them.  Messrs. McNarland, Co-iterill, Adlard and Jackson are having a taste  of the trenches this week. They are  lowering the pipes of the Goat Mountain "Waterworks Co. from the Cook  corner to the Jackson place, in order  to haye a.supply of water all winter.  A. Cameron is the first of the adult  hunters to bring home a deer this  winter. He got quite a nice one while  out oh a hunting expedition after the.  Monday snowfall.   -  S. N. Holmes left yesterday for  Coleman, Alta., where he expects to  he employed until spring.  Hallowe'en was very quietly observed in this section this year���������about  tne .quietest we have ever had. "~  Mrs. Crisler, who has been spending  a few days with Trail friends, returned onSnnday. He and Mrs. Crisler  wi������i spend the winter iu ihe south  owing to the none-too-good health of  the latter.  Alice Siding has something to be  almost boastable in the one-year-old  328-pound dressed, hog the Pease ranch  recently acid. However, the record  ���������for the Valley in .this regard is held  in this section. Two years ago. tiie  :Stock & Jackson ran~ch_ butchered one  that weighed^.poir^,v*, ^-$������:> =  " The first -**-Instalment'' of winter  which waa in evidence at the weekend did not catch Erickson unprepared. The apples were all gathered  i before the 25th,--and the roots and  vegetables were mostly all harvested  before the snow came, too. ...���������  Local ami Personal  Fund for October, were slightly in  excess o������$l75. Total payments here  for tht year to date are in the neighborhood of $1500, but there is still  almost $500 still due, which amount  it is hoped will come in this month,  the financial year of the Creston  branch closing on Nov. 80th.  The first snow of tbe season was  visible on the level on Saturday  morning, disappearing the following  day. On Monday reinforcements  arrived to the extent of almost two  inches of it, but it is also disappearing. None of the local weather  prophets will concede that winter is  due yet for at least a month, which is  well, in view of the scarcity and  higher price of wood.  Mrs. R. M. Reid, who is intending  to spend the winter at the old home  ai Trenton, Ont., was guest of honor  at a whist at the home of Mrs. Henderson last Thursday eyening, Five  tables of players participated and the  honors went to Mrs. Bennett and Mr.  Boyd, with Mrs. Brown making the  low-score. Refreshments were served  at the close, the evening being immensely enjbyed by all present. ��������� '  About a dozen post makers arrived  from the east on   Monday and will be  j here this winter for *Belanger & Mangan.    The firm  will take out posts on  the  Simmons  property    across   the  river, and will likely operate   on the���������  Sayward-Dayis   tiniber in   the same  locality, the latter deal   being practically closed. N This announcement will  be  heard with   satisfaction   as   this  payroll will contribute  materially to  the prosperity of the town for another  winter.  The whist and dance in the Auditorium   on   Friday   hight    attracted  about a dozen .tables j>f caidplayers  wSili' another ^goodtSM^^delegation  taraing,-;^p  fbl* the -dance ..feature  The "prizewinners at whist were Mrs.  F.   Benlanger   and    Gerald   Craigie.  Dancing was from 10 till midnight,  with music by the Creston orchestra.  With   the   crowd   of  young   people  thinned down   to the point: where a  straight dance is no longer a financial  success  these   combined evenings of  cards and. a hop to close are likely to  be popular this winter.  Unionist Meeting  Selects Delegates  Christ (^urch^^^l^  nounee their annual bazalir-this year  .for the Parish, Hall' on Wednesday  afternoon, Novi 21st. There will be  the sale of useful and Christmas gift  articles, along with a. sale of home  cooking. At night there will be a  whist drive and dance, to which 50  cents admission will be charged.  The Blinco apiary made the first  shipment' of the 1017 honey crop this  week. It consisted of over half a ton  of the extracted variety, and accounts  for about 40 per. cent, of the honey  yield at this well-known 'apiury this  year. The Valley will possibly have  4000 lbs. of honey to supply a demand  for more than double that quantity.  All the ladles Who would like to  help along with Red Cross work are  invited to meet at Speers* Hall on  Tuesday afternoon when a tie wing  and knitting session will be the order  from2 to 5 o'clock; with a 10-cent tou  'at tho close.

Ho also gave a  Inn torn lecture on Palestine and  Australia here on Saturday night, and  at Canyon on Monday night, but the  inclement weather kept down' tho  attendance at both controii.

The almost-adequate supply of refrigerator cars that has been available  .for fruit shipments till season petered  out completely this week, and for rush  orders the Union has been forced to  use paper-lined box cars. A car of  this sort loaded .with apples and vegetables went out to Coleman on Wednesday, but for safety's sake a wood  burner was rigged up in it and an  attendant went along iii the car to  make sure, the supply of heat was  ample. At Crunbrobl**^-and points  e'-st a touch of below-zero weather  prevailed' the fore part of the week.

Tuesday night's meeting in Mercantile Hall to'discuss Unionist government affairs and, if favorable, elect  delegates to the Unionist convention  at Nelson to-day, was fairly well at  tended, close to half a hundred voters,  which included a dozen ladies, turning out.  Dr. Henderson was selected chairman of the meeting, and C. F. Hayes,  secretary. After very briefly ontt  lining the purpose for which the  meeting was convened and personally  endorsing the Unionist government,  the chairman called on Rev. J. S.  Mahood, Rev. G. S. Wtiod, and Rev.  M. W. Lees, the local clergy, to address the gathering.  All the speakers heartily endorsed  the idta of Unionist gov* rnment,  which is for the duration of the war  only. They were equaiiy enthusiastic  in having Creston Valley get behind  tbe new administration whole heart-  edly, believing that it was the surest  route to Canada's best effort in getting  "the needed reinforcements for overseas, and at the same time giving the  Dominion sound business government  in every direction.  ,  Another speaker who got a splendid  reception    was    Sergt.    Melnnis   of  Nelson,  who came] down at the request of the Unionist organization in  that city more especially to detail the  steps that hay**'been taken culminating in the billing of to-day's convention at Nelson by the Conservative,  Liberal, Returned Soldiers and  Great  War   Veterans'   Associatit n  city bf Nelson.   In addition to this he  also gave a few minutes talk on conditions' at '_the^ front/and /the   the  necesi^ty.An-^^iaiit^^es of enforcing  compulsory service  on'the selective  draft  plan.-    The    sergeant   is   well  qualified to speak on   overseas   conditions as he wentacross in the spring  of 1915; returning the following year  wounded, and after recovering re-enlisting with the 168th Battalion  and  haying another stay at the front until the summer of this year when he  whs again  sent back to Canada,  and  has since been discharged as unfit for  further fighting. -  At the conclusion of the speech-  making, it was. unanimously decided  to participate in the nominating convention, and the following delegates  were selected:  Kitchener���������G. "A. Hunt. '  Sirdar���������Mrs. C. M. Loasby.  ,   Boswell���������Jas. Coupland. '  Creston���������Mrs. W.   C.   Forrester,'C.  F. Hayes, R. J. Long.  In order to further? the^Uuiohist  cause and to look after the campaign  of the Unionist candidate in th*=f Valley a committee consisting of Mrs.  Thurston, Mrs. Forrester, H. K.. Oatway. R. S. Bevan, Rev. M. W. Lees,  Jas. Compton and the chairman and  secretary of the meeting was named  to get organization work under way  and another citizens'meeting will be  called shortly to hear the report of  the delegates and elect the officers  and committees.  For their good work the speakers  of the evening were tendered a very  hearty vote of thanks, and the meeting adjourned with God Save the  King.  ���������*-jLA  mwwygiisa&p  Mr. Mackenzie of Victoria* an  auditor for the Workmen's Compensation Board, was here on Tuesday  looking over the M. Wigen and Winlaw pay rolls, in order to fix their  assessment in this regard.  _^- Creston visitors this week include  Mrs. Penson, Mrs. Of ner, Mrs. May  and Mrs. Matt. Hagen. and O. J.  Wigen.  Monrad Wigen's sawmill was  forced to close down the early part of  the week, owing to a rather serious  break in the engine, and will be home  days before he can resnme-<opeia������ions.  Miss Florence Bathie returned on  Saturday from Cranbrook and is  coming along fine after an operation  for appendicitis, although not feeling  quite as well as usual as yet.

We hear he  proposes taking a trip to the old home  in eastern Canada in* a couple of  weeks.  Mr. Staples, manager of the Fruit  Growers Union at Creston, was a  visitor here on Saturday. He came  this far as stoker in a heated car lo-ul-  ed with potatoes.  Mr. and Mrs. McMaster were visitors  at Proctor on Friday even ing j Jast for  a Red Cross card party and dance,  and report a yery successful and enjoyable affair.  The snow on Monday made conditions ideal for deer hunting, although we can get no track of any  venison coming into camp as yet.  The slaughter of ducks at the Landing  is quite heavy these days.  W. B. Muir and partner of Creston  came in the early part of the week  and will spend some time in the hills  in this part doing work ou some  mining claims of the latter.  W. H.

Avory, on  the -'-contrary, was .a  man   of limited  means; more or less of an advent titer.  Coiisequently he spent little- on.  the  merely domstic side    of    life.      His  rooms ^were   plainly     furnished;     he  used   them  as  places   for   sitting    in  and   sleeping in;   he 'did     not     even  breakfast in them, preferring to take  all his  meals  put.    Consequently   he  required little in the way of'service.-|  All  the service  thai  hc    needed was  supplied to him by two  people  who  lived   in   the   lower   regions   of     the  house���������a   caretaker     and     his     wife,  'whose   name   was   Bryson.        Bryson  acted as valet  to such gentlemen as  Avory,  brushing   their  clothes,   doing*  odd   jobs,   seeing   that     their     small  mendings   and   repairs     were     done.:  Mrs. Bryson performed the useful office, of bedmaker and kept the    room  as free from dust as it is possible  to  do iu  London.

She. went up in her usual fashion  and at her usual time on the morning following Avory's meeting with  Barthelemy and von Roon, and she  let herself into Avory's chambers  with her private key as shc had let  herself  in   a   thousand  times   before.

The protection  now extends from the present .time  until 1918, and if considered necessary the closed season will be extended for a further period at the  next  ntceting^of  the  legislature.  A variety of reasons have- been I destruction  given for the great scarcity of the  prairie chicken, among them being  thc unfavorable weather conditions  during hatching ' time in 1915 and  the killing of female chicken by  crows, hawks, wolves, gopher poison,  excessive hunting, pump guns and  even the rural telephone wire's have  been blamed for their partial destruction. Many remedies havc been  suggested the prohibition of the  shooting of the birds for a number  of years, increased penalties for violation of the game laws, regulation  of the use of gopher poisons, prohibition of the use. of small rifles, prohibition of hunting Avith dogs, reduction of the bag limit, and the extermination of crows aud other enemies  of   the  prairie  chicken. '  The economic value of the prairie  chicken is too often overlooked.^ It  is a scientic fact that all birds of  the grouse family destroy myriads of  most destructive insects which if left  unchecked would play havoc with all  kinds of crops. Birds of that species  have been appropriately named the  "most marvellous engine of destruction ever put together of flesh    and  blood." *.        .-...;���������.���������      .   )       V  The grouse and all birds belonging  to that family live on a d-tet of weed  seeds -during the fall andfvinter when  they cannot get their regular supply  of insects. Every factor that tends  to keep down the insect and weed  pest is certainly deserving of more  than passing interest, and on the sole  score of their great usefulness to tne  farmer the grouse arc worthy of  every protection. ���������.-������������������-. ���������      ,  A very exhaustive study of the  causes of the scarcity of the prairie  ���������chicken has been made by the provincial game branch, and every possible measure has been taken to pro-  jtect them and save them from utter  Ypres  In the salient of Ypres. there are  not less than one hundred thousand  graves of Allied soldiers, sometimes  marked by plain wooden crosses,  sometimes obliterated by the debris  of ruined trenches, sometimes hidden in corners of fields. The ground  is forever England; it is also forever  France. When the war is over this  triangle of meadow land, with a ruined city for ils base, will be an endave  of Belgian soil consecrated as -ihe  holy land of two peoples. It will be  for tis the most hallowed spot on  earth, for it holds our bravest dust,  and it is a proof and record of a  new spirit.

"Five thousand pounds down and  a regular amount to be agreed upon,"  replied Avory with promptitude.  "And that's letting you off cheaply.

"Do you mind* stepping outside for  a minute or two while 1 discuss this  ���������with my partner?" he said. "It requires discussion."  Avory made no answer.

"We agree," said Barthelemy  tersely. "Come here this morning at  eleven o'clock and I will give you  lhe amount in notes. As to the further sums wc will discuss them then.

Mrs. Bryson knew Avory  for an unusually tidy and precise man  and she knew- that if he had left  these things there all night hc would  certainly have hung up his coat and  hat and put aside the gloves before  going out in the morning. Accordingly, Mrs. Bryson concluded that  Avory was still in his bedroom.  Now this was a departure from  custom which did not meet with Mrs.  Bryson's approval. She was a fleshy  woman, and in that, an old-fashioned  house, there was no elevator; consequently, whenever she came up to  Avory's rooms she had to climb several flights of stairs. It was a warm'  morning; she had no mind, being already up, to go down again, and be  obliged to climb once more at some  uncertain hour; therefore, having  pondered matters for a moment, Mrs.  Bryson made bold to knock at the  door of Mr*. Avory's bedroom and to  ask that gentleman if he was poorly  and, in that case, if she could get  him anything. For in all Mrs. Bry-  son's experience of him, Mr. Avory  had jiever been in bed of a morning  later  than  nine  o'clock.  Mr. Avory made no reply. Mrs.  Bryson, listening, with her large and  homely face pinned close to thc.  door, heard nothing but the ticking  of the. clock on the mantelpiece and  the rumble of thc Piccadilly traffic.  Then, having known people who  were subject to such things, she  thought that Mr. Avory might have  been took in a fit, and she rapped  loudly upon thc panels. There was  no response, to that summons either.  And so Mrs. Bryson opened the bedroom door and looked cautiously and  a little fearfully into that interior  which she vaguely conceived to possess   many  possibilities.  Mr. Avory lay in his bed, as quiet  and peaceful, to all appearance, said  Mrs. Bryson later on, as an innocent  child in its cot. ��������� He lay on his right  side, his right cheek resting on his  right hand. Tho bedclothes were  only drawn up to his chin; the rest  of his face was plainly visible. And  Mrs. Bryson looking more closely at  that face, suddenly saw something in  it lhat made her first gasp, secondly  scream, and thirdly hurry downstairs  for her husband at a rate'which astonished the one or two persons who  met   her.  "Dead! Rubbish!" exclaimed Bryson. "He's sound asleep, Matilda,  that's what he is, sound asleep. It's  what comes of the. late hours as he's  took lo keeping of. Dead���������not him!"  "Which you; may go upstairs and  sec with your own eyes, John Bry-  boii," said his wile from the depths  of the easy chair into which she had  collapsed. "And if you don't have  to go for the. police and lhe coroner's officer and what noi, then this  lien: isn't .Jeriuyii Street nor us in  il!

The Trail Blazer  ^o crreaier Motor Car Value  From the standpoint of dollar -for dollar ^value there's not a  car made which offers more for ijour money than the famous  Chevrolet Four-Ninettj A.  Before the Chevrolet was made in Canada, good cars were  all high in price.  But, our mammoth production and manufacturing efficiency  enables us to sell the Chevrolet Four-Ninety A at a price  much lower than its value when compared with other mokes  of cars.'  With the surplus power developed hy the famous valve-in-  head motor the owner of a Four-Ninety A invariably is the  " trail _blazer."  Standard equipment included speedometer, electric.starting  and lighting, ammeter, oii indicator light equipment, one man  top, demountable rims, non-skid tires on rear wheels and  many features usually looked for in cars much higher in price.

And truth to"tell  shc has risen to the opportunity and  now shares many business responsibilities  in  former  times confined     to  men. But, as women are subject to  more frequent fluctuations of health  than men,��������� many will be handicapped  early, if they regard their health requirements  too lightly..  The nervous strain, long hours and  prolonged mental or physical fatigue  thin the blood and weaken the nerves. Such conditions as "women are  now called upon to undergo can only  be endured by a full-blooded -constitution. This is as true for men as  for women, only weaker women suffer soonest. The woman worker, in  any line, requires her blood replenished frequently. She needs new,  rich blood to keep her health under  the trying conditions of business life,  and to fortify hcr system against the  effects of overwork. V This applies also to the woman in the home, ./who,  perhaps, has more worries and anxieties than usual. So let all'-girls, and  wonten take heed and renew their  blood promptly at thc first approach  of pallor, lack of appetite, headache  or backache. This can be best and  most effectively accomplished by taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills which  make .new, rich blood and thus help  womankind so perfectly. No woman  need fear failure of health if they  takc these pills occasionally to keep  them well, or give them a fair trial  if they find themselves run down..

A fort was built and  they were told to watch the Portuguese. Thc company forgot abont  this lonely outpost, and Sergt. Kaffyr.  and his men realized that they wore  in fact marooned. They had their  wives with theni, a guiding principle  of the Dutch Fast India company.  They set to work to build houses and  cultivate the land.  The descendant's of these c.ighl  couples still remain. They have lu-.en  wonderfully progressive in the n\o  and a halfccnturics the sixteen have  risen to three hundred, and they are.  a sturdy race with no signs of any  evil effects from intcrbrccdiug.v They  still keep their blood pure and still  have big families and many have fair  European faces and complexions and  litany children have light hair and  blue eyes. These npople had to worlc  and work hard, ;rtid the consequence  ii that after 250 ycur-i in this tropical island despite intermarriage thev  are still prolific, and still keep their  North  European characteristics.

Subscription: $2 ��������� a year in advance;  $2.50 to United States points."  C. P. Hattes, Owrier and Editor.  ORESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, NOV.  2  Yqub*  The  xt. .. 3  bllll'U  Canadian Wu,:* T  will be offered .the public within a  couple of weeks. In the past  Oreston Valley citizens���������-generally  for good and sufficient reasons be  it said���������have taken only passing  interest in tbe purchase of these  war securities, notwithstanding the  good cause and a very attractive  rate of interest.  Creston's failing in this regard  has been rather common in most  other parts of the Dominion as  well with the result that although  other loans have been over-subscribed the money has . come very  largely from banks, insurance  companies, and the big corporations generally. Worked out in  figures it has been found that  hitherto only one Canadian citizen  in every 400 has been a buyer of  war bonds.  Such a state of  aflairs could not  go on indefinitely.    Right now the  banks are  requiring  pretty  much  all their   available funds  to  keep  the ordinary channels of trade and  commerce   open,   aud., the excess  profits   of the other  previous big  buyers of war securities  have  not  piled up fast enough to ensure that  they can invest   as liberally in this  month's  war loan   as   they   have  hitherto-  All of which   means  that if the  forthcoming call for $150,000,000 is  to   be  honored   in   full  individual  citizens without exception will have  to  take  up  every  dollar's   worth  possible   of   the  new    loan.      To  facilitate matters the bonds will be  !n denominations  as  low  as   $50,  and it is expected the  interest rate  will be 5| per cent.  At* a glance   one  hundred   and  bond oh  the sole security of said  bond. .       y-v-yVV- .. -.;-.'"-..'.  Ori 'the whole Creston Valley  has had the inost prosperous year  in her recent history. There must  be a few stray $.50 and $100 open  forv investment. Surely no finer  opportunity could be expected to  give practionl expression to our  patriotism and at the same time  receiveinterest on the investment,  the use of the money V if emergency  requires it,; arid the certainty of repay men t at the eKpiration. of the  loan period.  The Hmoismt Finn  fifty million dollars looks like a  pile.of money, but it will interest-  all to know that more than that  sum was being carried around in  ��������� the pockets of Canadian citizens at  the end of July. According to the  bank statement $164,000,000 of  hank notes were in circulation on  August 1st���������more than $20 per j  head of population. Just how  much was cached away in savings  banks accounts at the same date is  .not made public, but it is safe to  say it was double that sum  The purchase of a war bond, too,  is pretty much a matter of "eating  your cake and having it." The  government uses the money for  war purposes and it will all be  spent in various ways in Canada.  And in case the owner of a war  bond suddenly' needs the money  any bank iu Canada will lend him  money up to the  face value of the  The cause of union governmet  continues, to Sourish. Safe, sane  and, withal, satisfactory progress  is reported all along the line.  At present the backers of the  new regime are bending their  energies to see to it that so far 'as  possible only one straight supporter  of the union government is nominated in each constituency.  The plan adopted is an admirable  one.    Where   the   present    representative of  any   constituency has  showr    himself  to   have   been   a  couscriptionist  he  is  to    be   considered     the    union    government  candidate   in case  of   seeking   reelection.    When   the previous representative   is    not     desirous     of  nomination   arrangements   will be  made to nominate standard bearers  so far as possible so as to retaiii the  ratio .of Liberal   and   Conservative  Unionists in the new   house  about  on   a par  with   the   old   parties'  standing   iu   the   parliament   just  dissolved.  In this effort to arrive at seme,  agreeable and practicable basis as  safeguarding the interests of the  two old parties, and get on with  the election, the Unionist government is being ably supported by  almost the entire press outside  Quebec���������a pretty accurate index  as to how the wind is blowing.  While, however, the situation to  date is assuredly all the most  ardent Unionist could wish the  danger of defeat at the polls is far  from being past. , The lose-the-war  party is losing no time in an effort  to create distrust amongst sup  porters of,<the new government.  This is the one thing Unionists  in this section must be on their  guard against. Even in a critical  time like this the old party prejudices will be hard to keep under  control, but controlled they must  be if win-the-win principles are to  triumph in the content.  As to principles, there is no  difference between Liberals and  Conservatives so far as the war is  concerned, and the Union government is first and foremost a war  government. The successful conduct of Canada's share in the great  conflict is the one great task to  which the new government: will  devote its energy and intelligence.  It is a task in v^hich there can be  no difference of motive  among arty  CANADA  Will Class ������tie Provi  One Httfidred Thousand Men ?

Also, it would  entail less financial burden for Canada, through separation allowances, etc  Authorities estimate that, after all proper exemptions have, been allowed, Canada should be able to  produce from the first class 100,000 men fit for service, so the drain upon the man power of the country  will not be severe. V^        :'  Members of Class One will be well advised to present themselves for examination immediately to  the Medical Board in their district Upon examination as to their physical fitness, they will be placed in one  of the following categories: A--  Category A���������if fit for service in overseas fighting units.

Category E���������if unfit for military service of any nature. .   *"*������������������  If not placed in Category A, the applicant will know that he is not liable for immediate service, but wilt  go to the Post Office and send in a claim for'exemption with his Medical Certificate attached, when he will receive in due course a certificate of exemption until those in his medical category are summoned for service..  Where a man, who is placed in category A, feels that exemption should be allowed, an application  form can be secured Irom the postmaster.   This form, when filled in, will be forwarded by the postmaster  to the registrar of the district, and the applicant will be informed by mail as to the time and place for the  consideration of his application by the Exemption Board.

London show- that the ruling class iu  Prussia bitterly resents every implication that it is to lose some of its power.

With the com-  i-ng of democratic goyernment ministers "nowadays forsake the house  for ''.ttic public platform. It is * a sign  of the times, and significant of the  silent revolution which war is bringing in its train, that the prime minister of the. United Kingdom _ takes  advantage of every . opportunity to  associate the people witii the government in bidding defiance to German  military science. For Mr. Lloyd  George knows that'side by side with  the physical struggle, the fight is being waged for a new world made safer for the common people.      "  A new world. This is the goal  towards which thevAllied nations are  marching. This new Vworld is coming not from kings or governments  or parliaments, but -from the people,,  who? lTavc^bceii so long shut out  of  "their heritage. When Mr. Lloyd  George, inVa' r-jceiitspeech, called on  the British democracy to "get a-new;  I world"1 die  had  in  mind    the   disap-s  . pointing barrier which German military aggression interposed between  the .British masses and; the full consummation .... of tlicir hopes.

In that new world the parliament  must ^ake its' place not as the machinery of a government, or a party  bi.it as the sovereign will of the, nation. Unthinking observers^; of the  effects; of the war upon parliament  see in the breakdown of the representative chamber the inherent limitations of democracy as a -governing  force in time bf vvar. *\This was not  the conclusion of Mr. Balfour. Standing ou the threshold of the new world  ��������� that is rising from the ashes'of the  past, the people of the Allied nations re-echo Mr. Balfour's challenging words in the house at Ottawa:  "We li ave staked our last dollar on  ��������� democracy, .and if democracy fail us  tye- arc bankrupt indeed."���������Toronto  Globe.  is democracy that we shall have to  fight when our arms have long been  at rest and the far-advanced frontiers of the new and greater Germany have been secured-���������in spite of  July 19 and its reichstag majority���������  in a German security peace."  This causes the Berliner Vor-  warts, the organ bf the so-called majority Socialists, to remark:  "So, when England, France, America, Russia, etc., have been defeated,  the war will begin, with cheers in the  name of -the German people, against  the German people, itself."  The Berliner Krcu-z-Zeitung publishes the following appeal to the  Prussian nobility:  "The Fatherland is in danger. Our  enemies, it is true, cannot stand up  aganist the ; sword of Hindenburg  and his loyal .supporters or against  the durirg of our gallant bluejackets.; But,_ as must be said to  our eternal, disgrace, our enemies  find", conscious and unconscious allies among people wdio bear ths German'name and live within the -German frontiers.- The German people's will for victory is being weakened, and efforts are being made to  disturb the well-proved foundations  of out state system, Prussia���������Germany is on' the: verge of an abyss.  "Where at this hour are the sons  of those to whom the Prussian state  and the whole German Fatherland  owe so much? Where is the Prussian nobility? Is it not now their  duty to call the whole of the loyal  Prussian people of all classes to  gather together . ��������� and resist the disappearance of the Prussia of Frederick the Great and the German  empire of William the Unforgettable  and his great chancellor? Is all the  precious blood to have flowed in vain?  The Prussian nobility must be summoned, not to the defense of its alleged or real rights, but to the fulfillment of its ��������� duties toward the  Fatherland which are based deep in  history.

Spies in South America  G'ermah Agents  Well Organized   in  Buenos Ayres for Enemy  Work  ��������� Coming closely after Secretary of  State Lansing's revelations of German-Swedish intrigue, the New York  .World publishes the following article  from its correspondent in Buenos  Ayres,  under date  of August  18:v  The unusual activities'of ' German  spies.in this city during the recent  visit of the United States squadron  have led to the discovery of an espi-j  onage bureau which appears to be tho  headquarters for -Gentian activities in  South America.  It was through an accident tliat the  espionage activities' were discovered.  ThcBfi were revealed through the  opening of a letter which was  wrongly delivered to a man of pro-  ally sentiments. On reading the letter he turned il over to the foreign  ' office.  The president of lhe. Argentina Republic immediately started searching  enquiry with the result that it has  byen learned that tbe bureau Is beiug  rrnanccd from Germany and that it is  housed in the elaborate residence of  a German nobleman who is now living in a hotel.  A secret .wireless outfit has been  discovered in a house, ou United  Slates  street  and  was  demolished.  Tt had been asserted for some time,  by allied representatives here fh.it  German espionage agents in Buenos  Ayres have been in direct communication with Berlin by means of the  Buenos Avros cable to Spain, whence  the information is sent by wireless  from  Madrid.  road> in order that'hc might have  the pleasure of jumping over it on  his horse. This he did several times,  backwards and forwards, whilst the  mourners looked on indignant and  helpless. Archduke Otto and his  friends  then continued their  ride.  Herr Pernerstofer, who at that  time -was the, only Socialist member  of thc Austrian chamber of deputies,  brought the scandal to light in parliament, and denounced Archduke  Otto from the rostrum ofVthc chamber as a blackguard. ..His courageous  attack on one of the'most prominent  members of the imperial family caused a tremendous sensation.  The next day - Pernerstofer was  found in iiis flat lying on the floor  nearly dead. His servant had been  decoyed out of the house, and during  her absence one or more unknown  persons had got into the flat and  beaten Pernerstofer to the point of  dea^fi. When theV servant came back  she found the Socialist deputy lying  in a pool of blood, and for many  weeks afterwards he lay helpless as a  result_ of the brutal assault.  Police investigations were made,  but they were speedily terminated,  because it, was found that Archduke  Otto had been the perpetrator of the  outrage. It was also discovered that  the late Archduke Francis Ferdinand,  although he had taken no part^in the  coffin incident, nevertheless resented-  the public . attack on an imperial  archduke so keenly that he aided and  abetted his brother in the assault on  Pernerstofer.  It is one of the curious ironies of  fate that Archduke Otto's son should  now bc appealing to Pernerstofer  to stand by the imperial family and  help  him  in  safeguarding his  throiie.

H77  Highest Order is the Garter  VBut the Order of Merit Is Pre-eminent Gift of King  What is the greatest honor in thc  gift of the king? "Oh the Garter, of  course!" says everybody; and it may  once bc admitted that the. Knighthood of the Garter is thc most exclusive order of chivalry in the world,  and it must havc been one of thc bitterest pills the kaiser had to swallow  when his name and the names of his  lelatives and allies were struck ofi  that roll whose shrine, is St. George's  Chapel, Windsor.  But the Garter, though the most  exclusive' order/ .inasmuch as it is  coiifified to royalty and nobility, is  not thc greatest honor the king can  confer. That position of pre-eminence must be accorded to the 'right  to place the letters "O.M." after one's  name. The Order of Merit has not  been long established, but by universal consent it has t.alccn a premier  nlaoe among those honors whicli the  best and greatest may covet without  loss of simplicity and dignity.  Hitherto it has Heen confo^re'd with  extreme care, and the* number of  people who have held tliis title and  hall-mark of universal esteem and  admiration have seldom exceeded a  dozen. But to be in the company of  Sir Edward Elgar and Thomas  Hardy and Lord M'orley is to be of  the company of noblemen indeed,  who have (rained iheir patent to  nobility by splendid achievement and  by thc production of work.which will  oullast all the dynasties of kings.

West Will Get  Apples From East  Price  Has  Been    Fixed    to    Allow  Wholesale and Retail Profit  According to Hon. W. J. Hanna,  food controller, Western Canada will  obtain its apple supply from Nova  Scotia. Hc stated that the British  Columbia crop was 75 per cent, normal. Ontario and Q-uchcc have only  15 per cent, of a normal crop, but  Nova Scotia has 100. per cent, nor-'  mal. The latter province usually exports a large quantity of apples, but  this year the crop from the cast will  be diverted to the west aud the food  controller's department has . already  made arrangements for the distribution of the crop in carlad lots to the  west. The price has also been fixed,  and the wholesalers and retailers will  help in its distribution onffthe basis  of the fixed price.  Another point made by Mr. Hanna  was that it would be a great mistake  for Canada to change the standard of  its flour. It was true, hc said, that  for the present there would be a  slight gain if the standard of flour  was lowered, but this would be much  more than offset by the loss that  would accrue in export trade after  the   war.  hang our flags."  An Englishwoman who lived in  Hamburg for many years, and has  just made her way to England, gave  this vivid description of the condition of things there:  No place in Germany has been hit  so hard by the war as Hamburg. No  com munity sighs so anxiously for  peace. There is no more talk of  "victory."  To the thousands of people who  knew Hamburg in its gay, prosperous,  well-fed days the Alster city would  present a sad and sorry sight today.  There is no sign, whatever of its former prosperity. The harbor is dead.  The vast business of export ahd shipping on which thousands of Hamburg  families depended is-at a standstill..  They have, had to-make heavy drafts  on savings and invested capital. Tile  two great hotels, once the city's  pride, the Esplanade and the Atlantic,  are practically shut aud bankrupt;  they depend on the patronage of  wealthy vitmors, especially, A-1**^-  cans and English. Cafe life ceased  many months ago. You can get no  coffee that is drinkable���������-the so-called "substitutes" are vile ahd there  has been no tea for a long time.  The Hamburg goose was a once-  famed national dish. A goose, when  it can be had, now costs $25 or $30;  in the old da\rs a fine one cost $2.50  to $3.50. There is no lack'of money,  but money is worthless because only  in rare instances can one buy anything with it. There were never so  few fat men and women in Germany. "Pot-bellies," have disappeared . Everybody iu Hamburg is  and looks underfed.  Hamburg depended, to an enormous  extent, on English trade and good  will for its prosperity; and though  the Hamburgers at first prayed that  Gott would strafe England, .they are  beginning now to think of the future.  They hope England will forgive and  forgot, and help the port to regain  some of its greatness.  You will hear a good many Hamburgers say they know now that it  was not England who made the war.  They arc beginning to blame "Berlin." .The kaiser is not nearly so  popular on the Elbe as he once was.  I do not think tliere would be 'much  cheering for him today if he rode  round the Alster with his friend,  Herr Ballin. ��������� Hamburg soldiers are  very bitter when they come home.  You hear a good deal of talk, attributed to them, about "freeing" Hamburg from the rest of Germany when  the war is over; They want to be  "like England."  means that the war in the air con  tinues to be fought . overV ourVv6\vn"W  territory or tliat of our Allies^ To  carry the war into German territory  in such a way as to Cs.ectire-definite .  military results, 'such a supremacy is  needed as will "prevent. Gcrriiah airmen froiii ever'���������rising*;.''" Such a supremacy, if we, could hold it for three  months,.would gain us victory in the  war. We could bomb lvrupps so persistently that no work would be possible there. Wft could destroy: the  Rhine bridges, so that no supplies,  even if they cottld be manufactured,  could reach the German army. The  effect would be to double and trebli?  the relative strength of tiie allied  armies to the German. Had the truth  of this view been seen twelve months  ago,>wej might at this time have been ���������  in a winning position and -that it a  much smaller expenditure of life and  at a much smaller cost to the industry and finance of the country.  The truth was not seen a year ago  because "admirable as is the work  donevby the Royal Flying Corps and  by th?- Royal Naval Air service, both  vt^r office and admiralty were too  busy in defending their own prerogative over the air to take a broad  and long view of all thc changes that  this new arm would make in. the art  of war.

Already views about the future  of air power which would * have  seemed wild only two monihs^ago.  though they were put forward even  then, are now the commonplaces for  discussion upon the'-war. It is not  the least of our debt to America that  .her energy and foresight in preparing a huge air fleet has enabled us to  look ��������� forward with confidence to attaining the superiority required���������not  this year, alas! but next year. And  it is not the least of'the services of  Germany to our war policy that by  raiding London they have at last  knocked the truth into bur heads.���������  H.
