Today Canadian eggs  occupy a strong position in the British market. Thc question wliich tlic  Canadian trade commissioner iu Liverpool now asks is whether or , not  Canada can hold her greatly extend-  i ed egg trade in the United Kingdom.

Home requirements  had so greatly increased, that Canada had become a large importer of  eggs, and the total output was readily absorbed at satisfactory prices.  At the same, time the increasing  competition of continental sources of  ���������supply on the overseas market, favored, as they were, by steadily growing efficiency in organization for collecting, packing, grading, storing and  marketing, lower production costs,  and by a natural advantage of geographical situation, had brought  that I prices to a level that ceased to hold  vestal   out  special   attractions  to   the     ship-  Six Big Requests Made, of the-, American People  The TTnited.

'���������'The war had an immediate effect  upon these, supplies, the total imports  dropping from 21,579,950 great hundreds in 1913 to 17,904,805 in 1914,  10,246,926 in 1915 and 6,606,411 in  1916. Russian eggs in particular,  which had furnished over fifty per  cent. of. the tottil in 191.3 dropped  from   11,453,277     great     hundreds   in  1913 to 6,870,827 in 1914; 3,074,156  in 1915-and 734,525 or eleven per  cent, of the. total in' 1916. This decrease in supplies from the continent  resulted naturally, in producing high  prices and a strong demand for  transatlantic, eggs, ��������� and the greatly  increased production of Canadian  eggs has enabled our shippers to take  full  advantage  of  thcNsitualion.       In  1914 Canadian egg imports into this  country were 361,173 great hundreds,  in 1914, 916,326 and in 1916, 1,431-  778.  "Considerable complaint was made  of the pack of eggs sent forward in  1914, and the resulting condition in  which the product reached the market. These initial disadvantages, however, have been largely overcome hy  the shippers and at the present lime  Canadian eggs occupy a very satisfactory position in the. eyes ol" _ the  trade. They are very altractivch  packed, clean and of the desired  color, of good' size and weight, and  while they must necessarily rank below Danish and Irish fresh eggs,  they arc generally superior to all bul  the best grades of Bussiun eggs, especially as regards size and appearance. Thev always command a premium of from one lo two shillings  per ease over'American  eggs."  by M  Each individual member is requested:  1. To undertake to live up lo the  above six requests and ' to ask his  friends  and   employes   to  do   so.  2. To ask clubs and associations  of which hc is a member, to appoint  "a committee to assist in making general the observance of the above six  requests.  3.. To put into effect other ways  and means of making general in his  community thc observance of the  above she requests, advising of anything he is able to do in this respect  which might be of assistance in  other commiinities.  All members are asked to inform  the committee what they arc doing  in connection with the requests.  -Members will then bc informed what  other organizations are doing, and it  is said will receive frequent suggestions of their guidance.  "The important problem of food  conservation will not be solved without the concerted and continued cooperation of business men," the bulk-tin concludes.

'  make  lief in  Cure  Nets Guard English Fleet  Movable   Traps   Devised, for Double  Purpose Off Orkney Islands  The English fleet is kept in the  Orkney- islands protected by great  steel chains ��������� woven in the form of  simple nets which are not stationary  but movable. If they were anchored  ^so that they could not be moved  there is little doubt, but that* the industrious German commanders  would find some way of getting  through occasionally, says Popular  Science.  Tiie nets covering the grand fleet  are stretched out in great arms from  thc shores of the islands, completely  covering the fieeti Various types of  enemy vessels have come steaming up  to these barriers, though, of course,  under water, in the effort to catch  the great fleet napping. Whenever a  daring commander has attempted  such a coup he has always so far,  found himself not only nosing against a network of great chains, but  when lie turned to run has found  himself in a circular net and doomed.  Thc British operations are -simple.  A sharp lookout, and probably electric lookouts as .well, keep the chain  operators informed as to what is going on. When an enemy sutuuarine  enters the net its presence is soon  known and the operators, taking thc  ends of the chain, draw it together  to form a circle. The trap is then  sprung.    -.. _V  The British wait until something  happens���������until the submarine comes  cautiously to the surface to look  about, for there is nothing els*.' that  the."commander can do. Once up'he  has* the choice between destruction  by shell or surrender, ai?d to thc  credit of Germans it must be admitted that very, often the commander  refuses to surrender, hopiug that  same means of escape may still lie  open. - /  Twenty-four Million  Men Fightiag  Mightiest Armies World  Has    Ewer  Seen Engaged in Conflict  The fighting armies of the belligerents today, according to Sir William Robertson, number twenty-four  millions of men.

Mr. Constable confined his observations almost exclusively to the engineering work done by H. F. Mem-ling, with whieh he was thoroughly  familiar, __ giving    the   ministers     an  accurate idea of the points Hlon** the  lake as well as below Nelson at w'hi-'h  works would have to be undertaken  to assure the passage of the surplus  water as it eauie iuto the lake through  the dam which will haye to be so constructed to ensure the holding of the  waters of Kootenay Lake .-it a level to  safeguard navigation a** well as some  industrial enterprises such as electric  power plants,  Mr. Robert S*ark followed with a  statement of cas������e as to the agricultural possibilities of the area, going into  the productive capacity of the land as  revealed in tbe crops of grain, roots.  etc., on lands that are not subject to  overflow except in years of abnormally high water. He also went carefully into the immense value of the  flats even were they utilized strictly  ;is a dairying proposition. According  to the Mem-ling report the soil was iii  ideal condition for immediate cropping, tests having shown lhat the  land was so constituted that despite  the years and years it had been under  water careful scrutiny had shown no  trace of these elements that would  lender it liable to be sour and thus  require treatment  before satisfactory  t'oHi-nnu   **'*i������l11*^   J-wa  <������*������r-������-fc<jrf*������*-<i"  ��������� vv-ituo  vUUiv*   ii*<l~   *x^j^+ji~.\^%j<A*~*.'  Wm. Young, Victoria, provincial  comptroller of water rights, reviewed  the proposition as it came to him from  tbe engineering data the water rights  branch bas gathered and assimilated.  He enlarged on some of the engineering features mentioned by Mr. Constable, and expressed the opinion that  mi the information that had been  obtained so far there could be no  other conclusion reached than that  total reclamation was a" quite decided  possibility.  J. P. Forde, Nelson, the federal  government engineer in the Kootenays, corroborated Mr. Young on the  practicability of the work. All the information he had gathered and his  observations of the situation pointed  to that conclusion. Reclamation was  also to be recommended in that it  would be a money saver to the Dominion government. Tho present uncontrolled state of the Kootenay  River created no end of damage to  wharves and othor aids to navigation  in years of high water. With reclamation accomplished a normal water  level would be   assured thus eliminat  ing these flood damages, and with the  widening of the channel at Proctor  yery much less dredging work would  need to be done.  Mayor Anderson of Kaslo came  next. His section of the country  wanted the work to be proceeded  with if it was feasible. At pregpnt  the town of Kaslo is always in danger  of serious property damage in high  water years such as . 1894. Besides,  with reclamation 3000 acres of shore  lands at that point would be rendered  fit for continuous agricultural production- Mayor Amiable of Nelsi n  -warmly approved of the scheme as  affecting the general welfare of that  city, as well as of Kootenay as a  whole, and his sentiments were  heartily concurred in by J, R.

F. A, S"������orkey, Nelson, presideut of the .issoeiated board  of trade, also spoke briefly, drawing  special attention to the desirability of  opening up such a magnificent agricultural area at this point, due to the  extensive mining and industrial  centres contiguous to Creston. and  the immense benefit conferred on  theni by being able to secure farm  produce, etc, so close to home���������something now entirely lacking and thereby forciug up living costs considerably.

Hj/aflla.  mini  Explanatory Announc^meiit by the  Minister of Justice  ..Cv"  THE MILITARY SERVICE ACT has received the assent of the  Governor-General and is now part of the law of the land. It will be  ��������� enforced accordingly, and the patriotism and good sense of the  people can be relied upon to support it. Resistance to its enforcement,  however, by word or act must and will be repressed, as resistance to any  other law in force must be.  Reinforcements under the Military Service Act  immediately required  It is the intention of the Government immediately to exercise the  power which the Act confers and to call out men for military service in  order to provide reinforcements for the Canadian forces. This is necessary since the military authorities report that the reserves available or  in sight for reinforcement will shortly be exhausted unless this step be  taken.  First call limited to men between 20 and 34 who were  unmarried or widowers without children on  July 6, 1917  The present call will be limited to men not in the schedule of exceptions who were -unmarried or widowers without children on 6th July, 1917,  ore at least twenty years of age, and were born on or since January 1st,  1883. Of tins Class all those will bs entitled to conditional exemption  whose sendees in their present occupations, agricultural, industrial or  other, are essential in the national interest, and whose business or domestic reponsibilities are such that serious hardship would ensue if their  services be required. Conscientious scruples based upon n prohibition  of combatant service by the articles of faith of the religious denomination  to which men belong will also be respected. The men first required to  serve will consequently be those who can bc called upon with the least  disturbance of the economic and nodal life of the country.  Civil Tribunals to deal with exemptions  Questions of exemption will be determined, not by the military  authorities or by the Government, but by civil tribunals composed of  representative men who are familiar with local conditions in the communities in which they serve, who will generally have personal knowledge  of the economic and family reasons whicli those whose cases come before  them have had for not volunteering their services nnd who will be able  sympathetically to estimate the weight nnd importance of such reasons.  Provincial Appellate Tribunals constituted from the existing judiciary of  the respective provinces will be provided to correct mistakes made by  Local Tribunals, and a Central Appeal Tribunal for the whole of Canada,  selected from among -tiie present Judges of the Supreme Court of Canad a,  will be constituted in order that identical principles may be applied  throughout the country. In this way every man mny rest assured of the  fair and full, consideration of hin drcumntunco-i nnd the national require*  ments both civil and military.  Proclamation will announce tho day  A proclamation will issue calling out the bachelors and widowers  referred to and fixing a day on or before which every man must report for  service to the military authorities unless lie ha* before that day made an  application for exemption.  How to apply for exemption  Applications for exemption may be made by written notice on forms  which will he available at every pout oftlec, and will be transmitted free  of pe������tage. They will not, however, be required to be made In tliis way,  but may be presented by the applicants In person to the exemption tribunals. Tho cases of those who have glvon written notice in advance  will take precedence, and appearance In person will therefore be likely to  Involve considerably more Inconvenience and delay to the men concerned, so that it Is reoommtnded tliat advantage be generally taken of  ......    f .���������,������������.I .       *,m   ...���������ti.*,.xm.    ..���������.OI/VAt I/-VTH  litjMj ".Mi.jji.jwuW *%**  ...������*,-*���������* *���������������-.*-<���������.m?z.-*  Ottawa, September 11, 1017.  Exemption Tribunals in all parts of Canada  The local exemption tribunals will be constituted with the least delay  possible, consistent with the selection of representative individuals to  compose them, and the instruction of the members in their duties. There  will be more than one thousand of such tribunals throughout Canada, each  consisting of two members, one of whom will be nominated by a Joint  Committee of Parliament, and the other by one of the Judges of the  existing Courts. Every effort will be made by the wide distribution of  tribunals, and by provision where necessary for their sitting in more than  one place, to minimise the inconvenience to which men will be put in  obtaining the disposition of their cases.  A Registrar wiii be appointed in each Province, who wil be named  in the proclamation and to whom enquiries may be addressed. Each  Provincial Registrar will transmit to the appropriate tribunal the applications for cxerr-pLion which have been submitted in advance of the sittings, and men who have sent these in will not be required to attend the  tribunals until notified to do so. Other applicants should attend per*  sonally on the tribunal without notice.  How to report for service  Men who do not desire to claim exemption will report to the military  authorities for service either by mail or in person r.t any time after the  issue of the proclamation. Forms of report by mail will be found in all  post offices, and, like applications for exemption, will be transmitted free  of postage.  Early report advantageous  No man who reports for service will, although he may be medically  examined and passed as fit, be required to go into camp or join a battalion  until after a day fixed by the proclamation sufficiently late to permit of  the disposition by the local tribunals of most, if not all, of the applications for exemption which may come before them. Thus no advantage  will be gained by delaying or disadvantage incurred by prompt report for  service on thc part of those who do not intend to apply for exemption.  Facilities for immediate medical examination  Immediately upon the issue of the proclamation, medical.boards will  sit at every mobilization centre for the examination of men who report  for service or who, subject to their right within thc tltae limited to apply  for exemption, desire to have their physical fitness determined in order to  ullay any doubt ns to their physical condition, or to know definitely and  in advance whether there Is a possibility of their services being required.  Certificates of physical unfitness issued by these Medical Boards will be  accepted without any farther investigation by exemption tribunals when  they sit. Men found physically fit who have not reported for service  may nevertheless apply for exemption on any of the prescribed grounds^  including even their physical condition if dissatisfied with the Medical  Board's conclusion.  Notice to join the colors  As reinforcements are required, notice to report; to the nearest mobilisation centre will be given from' time to time to the men found liable nnd  passed as fit for service. Disobedience of such notice will render the  offender liable to punishment, but punishment for failure to report for  military service, or to report subsequently for duty when called upon,  will be imposed ordinarily by the'civil magistrates; offenders', however,  will remain liable for the performance of their military duties notwithstanding any civil puninhment which may be imposed and will be liable  to military punishment in casca In t which civil p roceedlnga are not taken.  Watch for the Proclamation  Notice of the day appointed for the making of a claim for exemption  or for report for military service will be published as widely as possible,  but, as no personal notice cun be given until the Individuals called out  have so reported themselves or claimed exemption, men poualbly concerned are warned to Inform themselves with regard to the day Axed.  since neglect may Involve this loss by them of important privileges ana  rl-jhts.

J. Hunter,  presideut t>f the Nelson Board of  Trade. Both praised Creston's hospitality, observing that if the people heie  went as thoroughly into all their  other activities an early start on  actual reclamation, work could assuredly be looked for.  "Reclamation" brought forth; the  foremost address of the evening, from  State Senator Walker. Ht* went  somewhat thoroughly into the plant  life of the Kootenay Valley pointing  out that the flowers .ind shrubs, etb.,  that he had found here were liot in  evidence in'the same profusion in any  part of the U.S. This undoubtedly  indicated that, superior climatic conditions prevailed here.. On his standing as a professor for 3jL years in U.Mi-  schools and colleges, teaching soil  chemistry a great deal of the tiiiie,  and after much diligent research  work Senator Walker stated that the  Kootenay Valley soil - was almost the  exact counterpart of the fertile soils of  the Nile Vaiiey, and so far he had not  read of similar discovery having been  yet made anywhere. Dipping into  figures the senator stated that if these  overflowed areas were reclaimed.and  cut up into^O acre farms, the postage  stamps alone the people occupying  these lands would buy would more  than pay for its reclamation.'; On his  war "garden of half an acre this year  be had demonstrated that had he been  able to cultivate five acres he would  have made  more   real money from I  fellows I  s   year j  tent*to i  the    exceptionally    dry.;   year..   The j  senator remarked on  the pleasure it  always gave him to   conie to Oreston, j  especially for affairs of this kind.    At!  Creston. he, always  found   We ay ere j  sort of all  Scotch   together,   which i  brand of  hospitality had never yet'  been   equalled,    Guy   Constable   followed   but    excused   himself     from  going, into .the subject'On  the   plea  that Senator   Walker .had   said, all'  there   was- to say   on    the   -subject. !  Prom his experience on .some phases i  of reclamation work on .the B.C. side !  Mr. Constable felt safe J n ssiying the  engineering    features    of   the   work  could be done,  and he thought  now  the   ministers   had looked    into the  matter right on the ground, and had  gleaned   all   the facts .available  llrst  hand it could  be only a matter of a  very sjiort time until  the great project was under way.  "Agriculture"    was    entrusted    to  Hon. John Oliver and Hcprosentat ive  Kent of the  Idaho  legislature.    The  former   warmed   up   to   his   subject  right from the start.    He  told of his  trip through the northern  part of the  province and   the splendid  yields of  grain and roots he  had -seen at some  points In the country.    He admitted  that these farms were  not as much in  evidence as he would like due , to  the  fact that large . holders of land   were  hanguig on to tracts   in raw  state in  the nolle   of   obtaining more  than a  fair price for therp,   and the minister  feared that the development  of those  sections could.not be looked for until tluwc   big landowners  were compelled to sell   their Jand  at  a  right  price.   The    goyernment    were   not.  overlooking this deplorable situation  either,   and   he    hoped   they   would  shortly bo able  to provide a remedy.  Mr. Oliver also went into some of the  disasters tho Fraser   River valley had  encountered   in dyking lands for cultivation.   These   happened   right   at  IiIh very door and on account of these  failures' his  department would   not  attempt anything of the sort without  the fullest investigation.    Mr.   Kent,  declined  to make but few  remarks.  Hc nald   nmnples of tho product**- of  these lands would be on display at tho  hull   on Saturday,   and   thoy   would  speak far more eloquently than he.

Formerly the. reinforcement units arriving at thei front wore  slightly weaker iu number than the  rolls showed, but now -the units were  always stronger owing to the pressure in disguise of Germans.

Success  The reason most of  of success is that we do nol want it  enough. We do not care for it sufficiently to pay the price. The difference between a good s.tudenl and  a poor one is not in brains half as  often as in industry and in concentration. And tbe young man who is  promoted in business twice to the  o'her fellow's once, is generally the  one who stays on after hours till  his work is done, instead of locking  lis desk at five o'clock. Many a  youth wishes he had the "luck" of  some successful one, when all  needs is a willingness to pay  price to duplicate that success am  more.���������Acton   Free   Press.   7 "  Minard's  Liniment  Relieves    Neural  gia.  ic  Sore corns, hard corns, soft corns  o.r any kind of a com', can harmlessly  be. lifted right out with the iingers if  you apply upon the corn a few drops  of freezone. savs a Cincinnati authority .

Would Regain Control of Dye Trade  From Switzerland comes a report  that a great dye cartel, or industrial  combine, has been organized in Ger-  n-ianv, with a capital of $250,000,000.  embracing* all. the manufacturers of  dyes-tuffs in the country. The purpose of this organization is, after the  war is over, to embark upon an industrial war in order to regain for  Germany the trade in dyes tuffs which  she. has lost. The attempt will probably fail. In Britain, in France and  in the I'nited States the war has  stimulated the production of dye-  stuffs, and this industry is so closely  thei related lo the produtcion of war material that the governments of these  countries are determined not to permit Germany again to secure' a monopoly in  that line. .  o   soiiii'thm    ior  ''Pop.   won't   you   d  M.iui'i   and  mc?"

Whaling Industry  The whaling season off the coast  of British Columbia is said to be  couling along in line shape. At Victoria alone nearly three thousand  bat'tels of whale oil have been laiuf-  ed. At Victoria the oil.is transferred  to tank cars and the cars carried to  tbe mainland ou a carbarge.

Excessive dustiness is the only  fault today, for war economies will  nol permit the use of precious oil on  roadways.

"In th<*, course of the year these  new armies of ours have taken, ove ���������  70,000 prisoners, including 800 officers. They have .captured. 450 German gnus, with more than 2,000 minor pieces like machine guns and  trench mortars. This is the capture  .of a mighty army, an. army of 10  whole German divisions as now constituted, with all its equipment. These  new armies have had against them  the whole military strength of the  German empire���������that is to say, of  every division in the German armies.

No fortress in history possessed one tithe of the defensive  strength of any one of these ridges  fortified as the Germans had fortified  them, aud held by the flower of the  German army under the. strictest orders to fight to the death and not  yield an inch of ground.  "This is what our new armies havc  done in the course of the ycar. Of  course, they have, won much ground,  a hundred villages, and ertdless  strongholds aud redoubts.- But gcog-  laphy is immaterial. The task set  them was not thc winning of acres,  hut the breaking of the' German armies, which, with 40 years of preparation, had thought themselves invincible, and had proposed to overrun  all Europe and constitute themselves  dictators of the world.  ���������'Without preparation and averse  from war, the peaceful peoples of  the British Empire, inspired by their  cause and by virtue of the stuff: that  is in them, havc made themselves  into a power which first held at bay,  .then made head against, and now is  wearing down the strength * of' Germany, and of the matter ' in wliich  they have, done it it is impossible  to  speak in adequate phrases.

Fine Leadership by British Sergeant  Gained Victoria Cross  For one of the bravest acts of the  war Sergeant (promoted Second  Lieutenant) Frederick William Palmer, Royal Fusjlliers, was awarded thc  V.C. The story of his "most conspicuous bravery, control, and determination" (as thc official record puts it)  makes thrilling reading: "During the  progress of certain -operations, all  the officers of his company having  been shot -down, Sergeant Palmer  assumed command, and, having cut  his way under point blank machine  gun fire through the Avirc entanglements, hc rushed the enemy's trench  "*������������������ ith six of his men, dislodged the  hostile machine gun which had been  hampering our advance, -and established a block. He then collected  men detached from other regiments,  and held the barricade for nearly  three hours against seven determined counter-attacks, under an increased barrage of bombs and rifle grenades   from   bis' flank  and  front.  "During his temporary absence in  search of more bombs an eighth  counter-attack was delivered by the  enemy who succeeded iu driving in  his party and threatened the defences  of the whole flank| At this critical  moment/although he had been blown  off his feet by a bomb and was greatly exhausted, he rallied his men,  drove back the enemy, and maintained his position." The very conspicuous bravery displayed by this  non-commissioned "officer (adds the  war office record) cannot be overstated, and his splendid determination and devotion to duty undoubtedly averted what might have proved  a serious disaster in this sector of  theiine.  SLootirig Of Jerusalem  Turks  Hun  are    Copying     Their  Masters in Palestine  The. situation in Palestine this  bu minor is the most serious since the  war began. A scheme for the looting of Jerusalem is already bring  executed. Throughout the country-  Bide the Turk has embarked on a  calculated policy of plundering and  killing the. native inhabitants so thai  if they arc forced to vacat.������ the  country they will leave behind them  n desert.  The following* statement of the  present situation is given to the Associated Press by an official iu kowh  with  conditions:  "The attitude of the Young Turks  toward tbe unfortunate non-Turkish  races within their empire has been an  ���������.pen campaign of robbery, exploitation ami   massacre.  "The' stupendous wickedness of thc  fx termination of the Armenian na-  Hon cannot be dismissed as a particular measure aimed at one particubu  race, for it is the Turkish policy lo-  ���������wards, not only Armenians, but also  Greeks and Jews, iu fact, all peoples  who ure subjects of the Turk but  ure. not themselves of Turkish blood.  "It is the Turks' calculated policy  to kill off the bulk of the. inhabitants  tif Palestine and extort the last ounce  tnf money and goods from them, so  that if tliey arc forced to vacate ih<  country they will leave  a poverty ���������stricken and  land.  "Their policy is not consistent with  military or economic needs and is,  ���������not supported by even the slenderest,  pretexts for its necessity, lt. is dictated   solely   by   a   savage   brutality.  "Th" di^i'lVr i1iti( befell the Armenian nation is now being meted  out to the yinixed non-Turkish population of Syria and Palestine. Families are being massacred, towns and  territories evacuated, and communities  plundered."  Torpedo Nets Impracticable  Found to Be Useless for Protection  of Warships at Sea  It was almost inevitable that in  the search for some quickly improvised anti-submarine protection for  merchant shipping, the mind should  think of the placing of some obstruction in the path of the torpedo,  which would serve to arrest or explode it at sonic distance from the  ship.  the    reason    that,    for  as   far back  probably-  first   appearance,  tomafic*  torpedo,  New Ideas Developed  Marked  Development  Along  Scienti**  fic'Lines Since War Began  ' "The. war has stimulated science  wonderfully," said Guglielmo Marconi, senator of Italy and member of  thc Italian corummission to the United States Nixola Greeley-Smith  writes in the New York livening  World. . "  "1 cannot say that war is good in  any sense, but one of the effects of  the:present one has been the development of new ideas and the obliteration of difficulties in many fields ol"  science. The war has put thc wireless to.-work in many new directions,  on submarines, for instance, and wc  have learned Iioav.-to control the atmosphere through which it passes to  a degree whicli' would have been  impossible, a few years ago. -War  has developed flying to an enormous  extent and wiih extend its uses more  and  more.  "Do you believe in thc practibility  ol transatlantic passenger travel by  triplane and iri the commercial submarine service after the Avar?" I asked the hrventor of the wirlcss^tele-  graph. ,  "I think that thc commercial triplane for long distance passenger  travel is a practicable thing." he  ansAvered. "I do not believe that the  submarine Avill be used for ocean travel in time of peace. Why.jgo under  the water when you can travel on its  surface?"  "One might ask why go over the  water when one can mud on its surface?"   I  replied.  "No," the inventor retorted, "that  i:-. not quite the same thing. A flying  machine eliminates dangers, obstacles  distances. It shortens travelling. One  can fly from Ncav York to Chicago,  for instance, in a straight line through  thc air, Avhile on the surface you  luwe to make many twists and turns  and so lose much time. I do not  think the submarine Avill ever bc used successfully for commerce.  "But I believe that the submarine  problems is the most serious presented by the war arid I do not believe  in letting people become unduly optimistic about its solution," Senator  Marconi concluded. "I do not want  to discuss the probable duration of  the Avar, but I knoAV that it will end  victoriously for the Allies.  "The contribution of Italy to the  cause of democracy is not so Avidely  understood in America as we would  like lo have it.  "It was Italy's declaration of neutrality that enabled France to withdraw a million men fram the Italian  frontier, and it was this million men  lhat enabled it to fight and win the  battle of the Marne. Italy never intended to join Prussia in a Avar of  aggression, but it might have^ kept  France in doubt and a million French  soldiers in arms where they were not  needed."

So far as warships are concerned,  it has been found that not only was  the resistance of the nets so great  as to cut down the speed of a battle  ship to five or six knots, but also  that the eddies and other forms of  disturbance developed hy dragging  'the huge area of the netting through  the Avater, made it difficult to keep  the. ships under that, complete control which is so essential to successful naval manoeuvre*. Furthermore,  although the maintenance of a net  at a distance of 20 to 30 feet from  the side of a ship by means of booms  and guy ropes is not a difficult matter Avhen tlic ship is in a sheltered  roadstead or harbor, it would be an  absolute impossibility if a ship Avere  steaming in a gale of Avind through  a   heavy  seaway.

Burden of War  Borne By British  Raising Huge Sums by Taxation   in  Order to Carry on War  Lord Robert Cecil, minister of  blockade, in a talk with the Associated T'ress discussed Britain's Avar  expenditure in hope lhat a better  idea of its details might serve to  sIioav the people what a tremendou;  war burden the people of Great P.rit  ain have cheerfully shouldered.  "In the period from April 1, 1914,  to August 4, 1917, the British g-TV-  erninent total expenditure has been  $26,378,000,000," Lord Robert declared. ''NTearly one fifth of this expenditure, or $.-,,220,000,000, has been ad-  Aanced tb  our  allies.  "11 ow does- this hit the ordinary  citizens? Well, avc raised a considerable part of this expenditure by taxation and taxation per head in Great  Britain has increased from Ic**.** than  $18 per ycar before thc Avar to $61  yearly at present. Of this average  $61 -which every man, woman and  child pays annually to the government $50 is collected by direct taxation, namely income tax, excess profits tax, stamp tax and death, duties  or inheritance tax.  "The other $11 comes from indirect  taxation namely customs or excise.

Then, at last along there comes one  midnight the loom of a long, Ioav  shape, like themselves���������a shape  which hurries and makes no signal.  Follows, then,[instant activity. Gun  Rashes tear the blackness to shreds,  searchlight beams stab and turn it to  broadest day. And, if fate is kind,  another enemy craft is removed from  the list of its navy.  For ourselves, a battered funnel,  half a dozen holes in deck and bulkhead, three inches of print in tke  newspapers, and a couple of Aveeks  in dockyard hands, during which  time the crew enjoy once more "the  blessings of the land and the fruits  of their  labor."  Then���������sea again! Patrol night after night, watching and waiting for  the dawning of "The Day,'1* praying  that it may not long- tarry.
