The first surprise party of the sea  son was that of Wednesday evening  last when the friends and neighbors  to the number of about thirty happened in quite unexpectedly on Airs.  Truscott and proceeded to play host  and hostess at an evening of cards  and other amusements, and not forgetting to bring along an abundant  supply of refreshments.- The affair  was immensely enjoyed by all. including the guest of honor herself,  despite the unseemly intrusion.

The first of the Red Cross weekly  sewing meetings, in Sperrs' Hall, on  Tuesday last, was splendidly attended,  26 ladies turning up te lend a hand at  either sewing, knitting 'or cutting up  materials with the result that many  articles required by the society were  either finishep or got well under way.  Two sewing machines are. available  but with the augmented attendance  that is promised for future meetings  it would look as if four machines  would be required. At the close the  president, Mrs. McMurtrie, presided  at a 10-cent tea, which helped out the  society revenues as" well as proyiding  the always-appreciated social touch to  all well-regulated gatherings of this  sort. These sewing meetings will continue all month at least, and all the  ladies are invited to lend a hand.  Sirdar  H. Rymell, who has been working  at Trail for some time, arrived home  a few days ago.  Joe Dubie came home last week  after spending the summer at Jaffray.  He intends staying here- for the  winter.

Joe Dubie, the veteran hunter, surprised the hunting fraternity of the  town by bringing in the firfot deer  since the season opened, and only  working two ..hours for what they  have been trying for the,whole season  without result.

Mr. Avory had seemed quite  well,  quite  in  his usual health.    They had had    a  pleasant   evening  and   an  interesting  discussion.

But however Bryson knocked and  rang, Banister King made no answer.  For King had set out, only the previous day, on one of his impulsive  journeys,' having heard of a man in  an out-of-the-way town in Tuscany  who had a certain old vase which  there was a possibility of acquiring  iu exchange for good English gold,  nnd so for the moment there was nobody at hand who  could     stand    by  i last  person  who  spoke  to  deceased  i But let them now hear what the med-  ! ical  man   who  had   carried   out     the  ' post  mortem    examination    had    to  say.  Everybody knew that this witness  was the most important pf the fewr  witnesses called. In common with  another medical man he had duly  prepared an autopsy on the deceased.  The deceased was a man of fairly  good constitution, of a well-nourish  Thc Prospective Price of Bread and  'Flour... In - the U.  S.   *���������  The average retail price of Family  Patent Flour in New York from  April to August, inclusive,. this year,  has beeu $15.36 per barrel.  Upon the declared fair price for  wheat the New York price of Family  Patent flour in the larger packages  should retail in at between $11.75  and $12.75 per barrel, depending on  the milling yield of wheat this year  and the price of mill feed. The price  of bakers' Patent flour to small bakers aud retailers in jute packing, allowing for thc millers' and jobbers'  costs and profits, should range between $10.35 and $11.25 per barrel,  depending on the milling yield of  wheat and thc price of mill feeds.  At the present time contracts are  being* made in New York for wholesale lots of bakers' Patent flour in  jute bags at about $10.65 per barrel  to jobbers, whose present basis of  distribution would make the flour  cost the small baker aud retailer  about $11.00 per barrel.  The price in Boston will probobly  be 10 cents jiiore per barrel, while  that in Pittsburgh should be 10 cents  less; in New Orleans 25 cents less;  in Chicago 35 cents less; in Minneapolis 50 cents less, and in Kansas  City 60 cents less per barrel.  At the prospective prices for flour  it is improbable that a full 16 ounce  loaf can be delivered to the consumer for less thau 10 cents per loaf,  unless the consumer will join with  the bakers and retailers in, eliminate  ing needless cost. It may be possible to reduce the cost of bread by  about two cents per loaf if co-operation of bakers, retailers and consumers can be secured to effect a  standardized \ loaf, and if wasteful  practices which have^ grown up out  of competitive conditions can be  eliminated, and a reduction in deliv  ery and credit brotfght about.

Hc  had  friends,    of  course,  but   they  were   few.       There  was a brother, a solicitor in  a provincial town, who knew next to nothing of him, had not seen him for several years, did  not  even know  what  lie did with himself, save that he was  a  barrister of  Gray's  Inn,    in    very  small practice.    There were,    a    few  people  of his own    profession    who  knew him; they could say little about  him.    And thc coroner and his   jury  were not very anxious to know what  th&? could say. their object and duty  ihYsitting  on  him,  as     Mrs.   Bryson  phrased it, was to find out the cause  of his  sudden death.    They    wanted  evidence on that point.    They wanted  to know what lie had done with himself   during   his   last   hours,   if     anything   hnd   occurred   in   those     hours  which would lead to the idea that he  had laki-n his life or been robbed of  it; in other words, had he committed  suicide, or been murdered, or had he  ������uj:.j  .j  nalur.-.l  death?

"You have no doubt about that?"  asked the coroner, laying special emphasis on his question for the benefit  of the jurymen.  The witness shook his head with  decision.  "None!" hc answered.  Aftcr that, and after listening to  what thc coroner said, the twelve  good men and true who were quite  ready to accept as gospel truth whatever was put before them on such  high authority, decided that Richard  Avory died from natural causes, and  returned a verdict to that effect.

Thus the folk who are not much  wanted disappear from the active  stage of the world.

Licensing of the Sugar Trade Is the  Next Step  ^The'licensing of all manufacturers,  refiners and importers of sugar has  been officially determined upon by  President Wilson as the next step in  thc control of staple food commodities.  The critical situation in the sugar  markets, anticipated during the fall  months, makes prompt action necessary, and the proclamation ^ of the  president will require the licensing,  by October 1, of "all persons, firms,  corporations and associations engaged in the business cither of importing  sugar, or manufacturing sugar from  sugar cane or beets, or of refining  sugar or of manufacturing sugar  syrups os molasses."  The issuance of licenses, the promulgation of rules and regulations  for 'theVgovernment of licensees, and  general control of the sugar industry  will rest with the food administration  and has been already generally discussed and approved by the leading  men in the industry. General licensing of the industry will serve as a  step toward the. regulation of prices  by the prevention of��������� speculation arid  the securing of equitable distribution. The sugar problem being orie  of distribution as much as of-supply,  the solution is to be brought about  by voluntary agreements with the  trades, the essential principles of  which have  been already  settled.

Thc new anangemeiils include increased service ��������� through special  trains, when necessary from the se.-f-  board to interior points.

Also,  honey prices are higher thau ever,  local producers marketing at 23  cents a pound, an advance of three  cents a pound over last year.  George Coc, director of thc B. C.

C. P. Hatks, Owner and Editor.  ORESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, NOV.   9  as we are expenenc-  The Lo&ie&iGhoiee  critical times  ing just,now.  This is the way The Review  looks at the matter, and we are  confident that the longer the vast  majority of readers ponder over  the situation this is the view they  will sooner or later take. This is  no time to let political feelings, or  interested politicians, get the best  of our otherwise sound judgment.  The    only    business    before   the  R. F. Green, ex-M.P., will be the  Unionist candidate in West Kootenay at the approaching federal  general election. Thib was the  decision of the Unionist nominating convention at Kelson on Friday night last* and in a few exceptionally appropriate remarks  Mr. Green accepted the nomination  in the same broad spirit in which  it was tendered.  The nomination was unanimous.  No othor name was suggested  even, and undoubtedly the gathering was as thoroughly a non-party  conclave as it is possible to get  together in the present rather  unsettled state of the West Kootenay political world.  The convention was not only  representative but it was also very  largely attended. Of the 90 delegates entitled to a seat at the  gathering at least 80 or more of  them must have been in attendance  ���������Revelstoke, the far-north point  in the riding, having its full quota  on hand, as well as the more-  eentrally situated districts of a  wide-spread constituency.  Mr. Green undoubtedly is the  all-f-Ound logical choice to carry  the Unionist banner. In the  parliament just dissolved he  strongly supported the cause of  union government. During the  five or six years, too, that he has  represented this constituency he  has displayed more than average  ability in looking after the varied  interests of  the Kootenay country.  In fact it is no exaggeration to  say that he has rendered his constituents signal service at times,  notably in the settling of the long-  drawn out strike of the Craws  Nest Pass coal miners, to say  nothing of his accomplishment in  helping haxe the extra 15e. a box  duty placed on apples coming in  From the U.S ���������the latter item one  that meant something to the  prosperity of the fruit growers of  this constituency, as well as B.C.  as a whole.  In   view   of   services   rendered,  and   his   generally admitted close  watch     to     protect     Kootenay's  interests, to have asked Mr. Green  to   step  down  and  out to   make  room for some   untried public man  would have been ungrateful, to say  the least; something no sane citizen  would do  in business  life,  nor be  party   to   under   other,   or   any,  circumstances.    And   if   its   good  business to   retain the services of a  trusted and competent employee in  e very-day affairs,   how much more  mportant it is to stand by a public  ervant  of   tested   worth   in   such  country  mm xsi  tllj.  xlxxms  to adjust the burdens the struggle  entails as equitably over the whole  people as possible. This can beat  be accomplifhed by a strong union  government, and this we have in  the administration which Mr.  Green supports.  Like Conscription, Unionist  government is late in arriving, but  few will deny the necessity for it.  It demands your patriotic, serious  open-minded consideration, and if  approached in that spirit is sure to  merit your approval, An early  decision is desirable, because it is  far easier to be patriotic than  partisan if only one gets a good  start.  Heat* Perns-son  The Auditorium should be filled  to capacity on Monday evening  to hear Capt. H. A. Pearson speak  on Y.M.C.A. work, more particul-  with the Canadian soldiers overseas.  This is a line of war effort that  Creston Valley knows favorably by  reputation, but this is the first  occasion that has offered to give  our citizers first-hand information  of the various spheres of its activity,  by one who has been actively  identified with the work since its  establishment with the mobilizing  of the first contingent in August,  1914, including almost two years  of it with the armies in France.  The Y.M.C.A. has had years of  experience in dealing with men,  and its methods are always manly.  Overseas, particularly, it has  shown rare ability in being of great  service tdJall sorts and conditions  of men.' Itf.v provides the grave  and ihe gay. iii its many-sided  efforts, with an ever watchful eye  to see to it that the service rendered is always appropriate to the  occasion, or the condition of body  or mind of the men with whom it  comes in contact at every turn.  The Y M.C.A. is a voluntary  army. * Its workers are non-combatants in the sense that they do  not go out to kill, but the records  show that they go out to be killed  like the soleiers while about their  work of taking up creature comforts and dispensing good cheer  generally to the men under shell  fire and where life is comfortless  and always in jeopard}'.  Assuredly if a friend in need is a  friend indeed our soldier boys have  always found such a. friend in the  Y.M.C.A. It would be hard to  say how  many  dollars  it  has ex-  Men's, Boys'  Youths  We have them in Overs  and 3-hoie Lace Rubbers.

The Military  Service Act, 1917  o It T  321  ^HE MILITARY SERVICE ACT is passed; the Procia-  * mation issued October 13th. It is now the bounden duty  of every man in Class One to report for service or claim  exemption. This includes all bachelors and widowers without  children (not otherwise excepted) who were 20 years old on  the 13th October, 1917, and whose 34th birthday did not  occur before January 1st, 1917.  What To Do  Go to your Post Office and ask for the form for reporting for service or  for claiming exemption, The form contains clear instructions for filling  in.   Do this not later than NOVEMBER 10th.  Beware of the Last Minute Rush  With so many thousands of reports and claims to be dealt with, the rush  of Class One Men will grow heavier day by day. You will waste less of  your time and serve your own best interests if you avoid the inevitable  rush on the last days.  The law is being enforced with the Government and the People firmly  behind it.    Obey the law.    Do it today. t  MsSmZsdt fey  The Military Service Council  pended on aid and comfort to  Creston Valley soldiei-s. But that  is neither here nor there. Suffice  it to say that it operates on money  raised by voluntary subscription's  and in view of the great services  rendered a generous response is  confidently looked for when the  canvasser for Y.M.C.A. funds  comes round next week.  Every Vote Needed  Statutary announcement from  Ottawa that the federal election is  fixed for December 17th, with  nominations exactly four" weeks  earlier, has set the political pot  boiling merrily in all parts of B.C.  So far as the government side of  the situation is concerned harmony  is gradually and effectually being  established. It seems to be pretty  well established that in the four  western provinces the Unionist  candidates will bo apportioned  equally as between Conservative  and Liberal Unionists. Alberta  and Saskatchewan will have a  majority of Liberal Unionists, while  in Manitoba and B.C. the Conservative Unionists will' predominate to an equal extent.  Tho scheme is working out  splendidly in tho two former  provinces, and in B.C. .things are  shaping up woll. Hero it seems to  be decided that the Liberal  Unionist will havo a dear field in  Chilliwaok, Prince Rupert, Burrard  and either Victoria or Nanaimo,  whilo tho othor constituencies will  bo alottod tho Conservative Unionist, with tho possible oxcoption  of one Vancouver seat, which  will go to a Win-tho-War party  Unionist man.  So far at least three constituencies  havo adjusted thcmsolvea to this  arrangomont. In Yalo tho Tory  UnioniRt and in Princo Rupert the  Liberal Unionitit arc aaourcd a  clear field, v. lulu in Yir'-.sl Kootenay Mr. Auutio, tho August-nominated Liboral, lias retired and tho  party aro talking of a convonoion  in a fow days to bring ont a  Laurier Liboral, if one of tho typo  can bo found who will bo willing  to bo led to tlio political tilaiiglitor,  to nay nothing of digging up tho  nooowmry campaign fundi;.  Of eoni-H*' ull thiH doom not moan  that acclamation*! will prevail all  over the provinoo. AftHiirodly tho  labor nnrtv   will   havo  candidate*)  at some points, of which ^HJast  Kootenay is liable to be one, and  the coast  ridings likewise favored.  So long as a straight two-  Unionist candidate party fight  can be avoided the Unionist cause  has little to fear from either Laurier Liberal or any of the, various  independent elements, although  such opposition will need watching.  The very large number of men  who are asking for exemptions goes  to show that there is a. big anti-  conscription vote to be reckoned  with, with the naturalized neutral-  foreign electorate altogether too  prone to buck the new administration at Ottawa.  However, with nomination day  only ten days the exact situation off  will shortly be revealed. Outside  of Quebec the Unionist cause is as  sure of victory as the Allies, but  the fighting will be stubborn.  Every vote will be needed, as well  as the whole-hearted and lively  support of every real Canadian.  Eternal vigilance is the prioe of  victory on this great occasion  assuredly.  I'egard, and his whole-hearted-eu-  dorsation of the Unionist movement will have a tremendous effect  in swinging into line any who  have been halting between two  opinions. When the higher-ups  like Brewster refuse to endorse  Laurier surely the &m.aller Liberal  fry in the Kaslo constituency  should not find it hard to follow*  suit.  Stilt They Come  The latest and most notable re-  oruit to the oauso pf good government at Ottawa is onr own  Premier Brewster, who signed on  with tho Unionists last week.  Notwithstanding a rather longthy  infatuation with the unfortunate  Winnipeg platform wq always had  confidence that Mr. Brewster was  a graduate of the broad aohool  of Liberalism and would sooner or  later fall in with tho other western  Liberal pjomioru and help roll tho  Unionist chariot along. His  espousal of tho Unionist cause  should prove timely, indeod. In  all tho othor provincea whoro  Liboral promiors liavo aotivoly  identified thomsclves with tho now  government vory little difficulty is  ln-iii/.* t-xpc-T'ienet'd in getting the  Liborals to unite with tho Conservatives on a Unionist oandidato  in tho various constituencies on a  mutually arranged division of tho  ridingn, that will a^nuro both tho  old par tiff' an equal Unionist representation iu the houtio. Notwithstanding nomo fooling that oxistH  that Ivir. BrewMtor iium not. rnoamir-  od up fully lo tho high otandavd  expected of him nn a party loader,  Gritfand! Tory aliko hold him  pot'Honftlly   in   tho   vory    bighertt  Then and Mow  So much is heard these days of  the suppression of profiteering and  the profiteer, almost entirely as  concerning manufacturing industries benefitting directly due to  war conditions, that the public  .--seems prone to overlook another  line of industry that is surely wax-1-  ing fat, despite a shortage of help  and the high price of labor. Here  are some figures from the Toronto  Weekly Sun, about, the best  authority on farm markets in  Canada: The highest price in the  cattle market was $ 11 last week,  $13 the week before, $7.75 beforo  the war and $5 ton years ago.  Sheep were $12 last week, $5.26  before the war, and $4.40 ten years  ago. Lambs wore $lfi.50 last  wook, $8.00 beforo the war, and  $5 ten years ags. Hogs wero  $17 last week, $0.25 before the  war, and $6.60 ten years ago.  Wheat is $2.14, 88 cents before tho  war, and A0 cents ton years ago.  Butter was 41 cents last week, 25  cents before tho war, 27 cents ton  years ago. Choose now 21 cents,  13 oonts before the war and 14  cents ton yearn ago. After making  somo allowance for tho "lean"  years that obtained prior to 1914  surely tho agricultural class will  not bo overlooked when Canada'w  oxcosh husiuoMH profits tax is being  levied or income taxes demandod.

Distribution of Cereals  ^H?ndles the Grain, Milling and V  Baking Situation  "'Details'Of the decree issued by the  French government which places the  purchase and distribution of all cereals tinder control of the state have  been received by the food administration.  The decree became effective September 1. A central office, consisting  of representatives of the government  and of the grain merchants, has been  created. There is also to be a central committee of millers and bakers.  Cereals may be purchased only by  French millers and grain merchants,  and purchasers of grain must give  notice of their buying to the . State  and '-must in no case pay prices in  excess of those fixed by the decree  of July'16.  Millers and grain merchants may  buy local growing crops only on condition that they will not require  transport'"by railways, waterways, or  motors. The State will supervise  grain distribution, and at.all times be  informed as to the exact state of  cereal^ supplied. Grain may be sent  by rail or waterway only by instruct  tion of a 'government officer charged  with the distribution.

What is the use of asking tor a  status quo ante -which leaves this  same nation i*ossessed of its original power to desecrate all the sanctities ot mankind? Our mission is  to free nationalities, to give the smaller peoples a chauce to be able to  control their future fate, to  Belgium    to    her prosperity.  imi  TDmiDi re  claims.  and  give back  s.f  isfy Italian  France her l$?t provinces of Alsace  and Lorraine. These are the objects  which stand immediately in the  foreground. Aud the principles which  underlie theni are no less sacred and  obligatory. We wish to have done  with a military despotism which sacrifices hitman lives in pursuit of its  autocratic end*. Wc want to get rid  of the dominion of brute and naked  force. We desire to reconstitute Justice and Liberty on their proper  foundations as guiding agencies in the  relations of men toward one another.  But thc first step in any such process, the absolutely indispensable  condition of our even beginning to  undertake our august task is the defeat of German military power. And  in circumstances like these the International Socialist comes to us with  clamor for peace at all costs, however fatal it may prove to the ideals  of the entente, powers! Are we not  then entitled to ask of what possible use, either to themselves or fo  thc world at large, are these deluded  and foolish visionaries who meet in  Paris and intend to prop up the Internationale on its old anarchic  base, and devise, with aid of representatives of Germany, and in consultation with our bitterest foes, the  future constitution of Europe?���������From  the  London Daily Telegraph.  So many people, both men and women, suffer from skin troubles, such  as eczema, blotches, pimples and irritation that a word of advice is necessary, It is a great mistake for such  sufferers and those with bad_ complex-  tons to smear themselves with greasy  ointments. Often they could not do  anything- worse for the grease clogs  the pores of the troubled skin and  theii condition actually becomes  o.orse.  When    there are pimples or    eruptions, or an irritating or itching rash,  a soothing boracic solution may help  restore j to allay the irritation, but of course  to sat- ; that does not cure the trouble.  Skin  to ��������� complaints come from an impure condition of the blood and will persist  until the blood is thoroughly purified.  It is well known that Dr. Williams  Pink Pills have effected the best results in many forms of skin disorders and blemishes. This is due to  the fact that these pills make new,  rich bloocl, and that this new blood  attacks .the impurities that give vise  to skin* troubles and disperses them;  so that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure  skin disorders from within the system���������the cfnly sure way.  It should be added that Dr. Williams* Pink Pills have a beneficial effect upon the general health. They  increase the appetite and energy and  cure diseases that arise from impure  blood.  ��������� You can get these pills through  any medicine dealer or by mail at 50  cents a box or six boxes for $2.50  from The Dr. Williams' Medicine  Co., Brockville,  Ont. __  Fowl  About two years ago, two public  spirited citizens, interested iu wild  life    conservation,    acquired      about  ^ 4,000 acres of waste land in the state  of Connecticut, with a view to establishing a sanctuary for wild fowl, and  of increasing the supply of game by  scientific propagation. They _sent an  expert to lake Winnipegosis in Manitoba  to  study   thc     habits    of     the  .ducks that nest and breed in that region, which is in the heart of the  great duckrbrecding grounds of this  continent, and to bring back  ducklings to form a nucleus  propagating work.  About thirteen different species, including a considerable number of  canvas backs, .������������������were., thus procured,  pictures, were " taken ��������� showing their  uests, and the situations aud conditions surrounding tlte breeding  places have been reproduced on the  Coimetcicut farm. A certain number of them are .pinioned, so as to  supply a breeding stock, but a. large  majority so raised arc allowed to migrate with the wild fowl which come  to the refuge on their migrations.  The birds boi-n and .bred in. the refuge return to it on their flights  north, knowing that they will find  protection in their old home. The experiment has been most successful,  and is encouraging those, who feel  that propagation is one of the very  important measures which must be  undertaken to restore wild bird life.  ���������William S.

Years at the Agricultural  lege Taught the Boy  Some Sense  A friend was chuckling ovcr the  difference a two year course in nn  agricultural;college, had wrought in  his son. ; ':      ' V ���������  "The ycarVthat boy wont to" college," he said, 'my south field was  awful thin.

John was taking a load  of corn to town, an<L-1 told him to  hitch onto the old wagon and fetch  a load of manure when he came  home. Do you suppose hc would do  it? Not he. I had to send the hired  hand, because John was too tony to  ride home on a load of manure.  "But last year," hc smiled reminis-  ccntly, "after John had had a two  years' course in agriculture, he came  home, from town with a wagon load  of manure reaching to the top of  double sideboards.

Live Stock Depletion  Nations  of    Europe    Now    Rapidly,  Depleting Their Supply  Thc U. S. food administration has  received directly from the French  government figures showing the decrease of live stock in France as ^a  result of the war.  On December 31, 1916, according  to the official French figures, the'cattle had decreased to a total of 12,-  341,900 as compared with 14,807,000  iu 1913 or 16.6 per cent.; sheep decreased from 16, 213,000 in 1913 to  10,845,000 December 31 last or 33 per  cent.; swine decreased from 7,048,-  000 in 1913 to 4,361,900 at the close  of last ycar or 38 per cent.  The percapita consumption per  annum of meat in France at the present time is estimated by the French  government at 69.61 pounds of beef,  11.16 pounds of mutton, aud 21.48  pounds of pork.  Thc French figures .emphasize thc  recent statement of the U. S. food  administration that the nations of  Europe arc now rapidly depleting  their supply. of live stock, and must  therefore depend largely upon the  United States for their meat and  dairy products after the war.  British    Admiral    Followed  Sane Naval Tactics  "For: something between two years  and two and���������������������������a half years Nelson  cruised off Toulon, in weariness# of  spirit, waiting for his opportunity.  Why did, he not go iu and destroy  the enemy fleet? We have his answer in his own words. When the  opposing admiral 'cut a caper a few  miles outside Toulon,' Nelson pointed out that 'he well knew I could  not get at him without placing the  ships under the batteries whicli surrounded that port, and that had I attacked him in that position hc could  retire into his secure nest whenever  he pleased.'  "Time and again Nelson and ths  other admirals of his time must havc  been tempted to 'take thc offensive,'  but they realized that ships could  not fight even such puny forts as existed in those days; and, after twenty-one years of warfare, peace came,  in, 1815, finding the French fleet as  strong in ships of war as when hostilities opened in 1793; but this country had reaped the manifold benefits  of sea command.

It shifts about lik<T  quicksilver at places. The British  Tommy's latest method of ovcrcom*  ing the obstacle is the sand-ahoo,  which is made of steel .nnd looks,  something like a, bird cage. He attaches the cage to his shoes, and tltci\  can walk along some 10 inches  above sand-level, while thc sand shifti  through the meshes of hia under-  shoes. So Tommy; can go on walking with comparative comfort. Tha  difficulties through which he marches  to conquer may be gauged from lh������  fact that when thc Turks were coming with intent to destroy the Sttea  Cnu.il they had to dig narrow trenches for their big guna and metal  these grooves, so that the guns could  be drugged forward. They found thid  method easier than building roads.  _^j*-"!ff3E?EJS!3'!S!!5Si^~  ^vD'OBiysv ���������<>;  \J l_J w' i.ij|  La  >lti\f'l'l- ��������� '������������������"-" !'-'<��������� **������'��������� I" -mJ*,.,:.'.  1  vw  ..,���������.m^,.,,^,^,.M.^.,mi^,^u,^im  mimm  m  j rA'Aamsazm

their system, and, what is inore, they
are pointing with contempt to thc
Jesuits bf its opposite. 'What,' they
arc asking, 'has enabled Germany to
put up this tremendous fight and to
hold together as a single-minded unit
' through the strain and stress of these
terrible years? What is the secret of
our immense efficiency? It is autocracy Which has enabled us to do
these things. On the other hand it is
democracy which is responsible for
the inefficiency of our opponents-���
for tjie political difficulties of France
for the present chaos in "Russia, for
the Inability of the United States to
make up their mind until, it, was so
late; for thc unprcparcdn'r.r.s' of thc
British and for the case with" which
wc fooled them before the war; for
thc want of cohesion and continuity
in their military policy, for the failure at Gallipoli, for the scandals in
Mesopotamia, for thc indiscipline of
their working classes for their domestic broils and dissensions, and for
thc way they sacrifice their great
men.'
"These arguments * arc theirs, not
nunc. But though they ure iueon-
v elusive at the moment, there is no
denying that they would wear a vci;y
different aspect if tlic Germans were
to win. There are millions of people
in all countries, not excepting our
own, whose faith in democracy is by
no means assured even now, aiul it
is doubtful if any vestige of their
faith would remain with - theni in
presence of a German victory. To
meet this by saying that the Germans arcnot going to win is beside
the question. Indeed it in something
worse than a more irrelevance. There
arc too many people about who assume that democracy, just because it
,, is democracy, will triumph automatically by virtue of sonic "Divine
Wi-rlil inherent in its niiture. This ><���
a most daiiKreous illusion, and if wc
Indulge, it we. shall bc beaten, and
what is inorc^wc shall deserve to bo
' beaten. The superiority of the democratic to the autocratic'principle must
not bc taken as u fact established in
tin; nature of things which of itself
and by itself will decide the issue of
llu: war. Iv-.tlher is it. the very ipies-

Only Kaiser Law Left
Objectof War Is to Enforce Recpg-
,        nized International Law
In .speaking of the conference that
he had with the kaiser at headquarters over the submarine question,.Mr.
.Gerard says:
"We then had a long discussion in
detail of thev whole submarine question, iu the course of.Vwhich the emperor said that the '\ submarine had
come to stay; that it was a wreapon
recognized by all countries; and that
he had seen a picture of a proposed
giant submarine in an American
paper; the Scientific American. He
added that, anyway, there was no
longer any international law. To
this ylast statement. Chancellor von
Bethmann-Hollweg agreed."
This was shortly before Germany
gave her pledge in the Sussex case^
"There was no longer any international law"���the words are the kaiser's. In truth there was riot much
at that time, iu_ spite of the three
years' effort of this government to
save some -sljreds bf it. . There assuredly was hone by which the German government considered itself
bound. It began the war with a vio-
lationi of international law, as admitted by ���the;"'chancellor*'when "���it' invaded Belgium. Asthc occupying
power- in Belgium, it violated it over
and over, again, as in the matter of
the deportations and enforced labor.
Every, merchant vessel that Was torpedoed was sunk in violation of international law.. The kaiser, therefore, was quite right, though unexpectedly   frank. ������';'.
As far as Germany is concerned
there is Vno international law today
Gould there ever* be any that would
bind a Hohenzollern or a'Hohe'nzbl-
lern state? That is a matter to
which; those who are now talking of
peace would do'well to give some
attention. What we seem to see is an
irreconciable ' conflictV between the
doctrine known as "the,will to power" and any rule of human conduct
agreed upon by civilized men to govern their relations;. One of the ' objects of this war, as far as this government -'is""-concerned"' is to see - that
there' is an international" lawy���From"

Ontario  Making Rapid   Strides   Towards Food Saving
Ontario is making rapid strides towards food saving. In these war
days,-'we are doing many new things
which wc would not havc thought
out in peace times. Almost tlic very
newest experiment is that of community canning. Farkhill Women's
Institute is making a successful trial.
Thc canning plant had a. capacity of
five hundred cans a day. The machinery is simple���a 5 h.p. boiler,
two vats, a sink, a copper- kettle, pans,
spoons, measures, etc. The vats were
heated with steam coils, and can . be
brought to boiling in three minutes.
Fifty quarts of fruit can bc cooked
at once. Thc smaller vat is used for
blanching and sterilizing, and thc
copper kettle for . making syrups,
jams, jellies, ''etc.
The aim is to conserve perishable
fruits and vegetables, and to store
material contributed by interested
helpers for convalescent homos and
hospitals. Everyone in a radius of
ten miles, who keeps chickens, '"has
been asked to contribute one chicken, and each woman who canned her
own fruit contributed to this store.
It looks as if this might bc. the beginning of a good work that should
not end when the war need is over. v

Peace Through Wat
By Former President  W. J.  Tucker
of  Dartmouth   College
T .believe that I am not mistaken
in affirming that the growing concensus of opinion among the neutral
nations is to the affect that thc most
direct road to peace lies through
war. I do not wonder at the present
endeavor aftcr peace in the name of
religion. I respect and honor it. I
can hardly sec how in the circumstances attending its inception, it
could have been delayed. But for
thc reasons given I question none
thc less its timeliness. When religion speaks its final word it must
speak with what I havc termed the.
inexorable simplicity of its, ancient
code of national righteousness. I do
not believe that Germany is as yet
prepared in the spirit and temper" 01"
it's mind to listen to that word.
Meanwbilcu '- see no other possible
course for us to follow as a nation
than that which Lincoln,- marked out
for us, in circumstances like those
in which wc are now placed, and iu
the following out of which wo reached in due time the. goal of peace.���
"With ��� ���malice toward none, with
charity for all; with firmness in the
ritfhl, as God nivcs us to sec tlic*
right, let us strive on to finish the
work wc arc in, to do all which 111:1 y
achieve and .cherish a just and lasting peace."
The Cheerful British Soldier
There is no doubt as to the cheerful courage, of thc British Toiiimv.
"He will go through the most awful
hell for a week ajjd come out of it
with a smiic." "We'll never beat,
those, fellows," a German prisoner is
quoted as saying. Discipline iri
strict, but the relations between officers aiul men are of the best. No
one denies the courage and lighting
quality of the Gcnuaus.' But they no
longer havc the confidence with
which they began the war. The letters taken from the dead nnd th<->
prisoners .sdiow that. Thu government "won't be. twitisfied until we ;..,���
all killed," says one. This is not thc
spirit of victory.---Philadelphia Ledger.

An  Advancing Democracy
American Writer Believes that War
Has Its Compensations
V It is not unthinkable that this
struggle may be the greatest step
thus far taken. in the social; brganiEa-
tion of mankind. We tia-^ become
more or less familiar with difFercnt
forms ;.of socialism and :pf government control; We are already sensitive to the injustice Inherent in dui*
industrial and political life: We are
ready for a decided advance of de-1
mocracy. toward, a real and responsible government iii which both
rights and duties arc equalized. The
present conscriptioil has elements in
it which were impossible to the days
^b-f-;sixty-one. Our railways arc passing v under, governinent control. The
manufacture of steel is no longer an
intendeni..enterprise. Food supply is
becoming a matter of legislation. The
need of governmental direction whicli
the prophets have .seen and felt; is'
being pushed forward as a war measure. In three months we havc gone
farther tqward the elimination of the
trust than in the thirty years preceding, and'can anyone believe that we
can ever return to the" situation of
even one year ago? Under the pressure of war necessity social evolution is accelerated, and if this be the
way of national success and happiness surely war has its compensations.   ���*'��� .- ,V-V Vy
Again, nothing in tiie history of
mankind is doing more for tlte development of the .'������international, inind
than the struggle now in progress.
"Most of us think individually and in
terms of our personal welfare. Most
of us think of bur -families and in
terms of'the locality to which.'",\vc.
belong. Some of. us can think in
terms of city and state, but the national mind is largely a v-lcvelopmcnt
of the Civil war. Then fortlic first
time wc learned as a people to think
of the United^States5 in the. singular
rather than in the" jphiral.' The process of enlargciiicnt cannot be. complete, however, until We'-can..think in.
terms- of humanity. Christianity, can.
be realized only as. an iiitcrnational
ideal. A Christwho is V limited by
national boundaries is . no Christ _ at
all. And it is this struggle, .which
more than any other factor iii history
is bringing the nations together and
breaking down the barriers of localism and nationalism in the interest
of an internationalism in which alone
Christianity can come to its own.
When the United tSates has stood in
the trenches side by side with England and France and Italy and Rus-
sia we. shall find that the word "foreigner" lias beeu merged into the
word "man." It will bc impossible
for us to think- of other ^ nations, as.
we have thought of them in the past,
and who shall sav that Ihis will not
bc a step forward toward the brotherhood of man?
And with this new spirit and better
understanding* of nation bv nation,
can we believe tliat the parliament of
man, thc federation of the world, is
not brought perceptibly nearer than
it has ever been before? As our
war of revolution paved the way for
tho. constitution and the organization of the thirteen colonies into a
nation, may we noJVhopo. at least that,
thc present world struggle may lead
the. way. to some form of world federation which will shut out forever
thc possibility of war between nations, and make the organization of
mankind something more than an ir-
ridesccnt dream? For some of us it
may be a time of perplexity and
darkness, but thore arc some of us
who cau say, "Well roars the stori|i(
for those who hear a deeper voice
beyond the storm."���-Rev. T... O. Williams in the Universal  Leader.

Evidently the Germans have i\vo
main objects in view. The military
staff hopes that by molesting our

lhevbankers, financiers, and shipowners of the Fatherland indulge the
expectations that our mercantile
marme will be crippled by the end
of the War, just at the time when
enormous subsidies applied to their
own are bearing fruit.
m There is no real reason for alarm
in this country, but the people must
realize the situation if the economy
campaign is to have proper results.
The prime minister, with well-trained optimism, said that our losses
were not so great as they were,'but
our output of mercantile shipping
was increasing rapidly, -which will
upset some German calculations, and
that our food supplies are assured. V
.It will be observed, however, that
the measures referred to are mainly
pf a defensive character-^-the liuild-
ing of ships, which may yet be tar--

submarine wiii be suppressed only by
offensive measures and the destruction of the U-boats or the crushing

Hospital Slackers
How a Fourteenth Century Humor*
ist Outwitted the Imposters
Stories of how to outwit imppsterei
who report sick in order to loaf inT
hospitals arc among thc oldest tra-t
ditions of the medical branches of
all armies. A fourteenth century collection of anecdotes shows that the
malinger was known in those days,
and Cardinal de Bari, who had a hospital at Vcrccil, found its resources
were being exhausted by me%i of this
type. One day he sent one of his
subordinates to investigate. This
man, Pctrillo by name, who was
something of a humorist, dressed
himself in thc robes of a physiciaif
and assembled all the patients for an
examination of their wounds. Then
hc gravely said: "There- Is clearly
bnt one remedy needed to the cure
of ulcers of this character, and that
is an ointment made of human
grease. This very day I intend, in
conscqucnc-*-, to draw by lot one
::n:(f:;K i\ti; win. v.'IIl be yluag'ca
alive into boiling water and cooked
for the salvation of all." Seized by
fear, nil the patients made haute to
aeporl thrnmelvcM as fully recovered
from llieir ulcers and consequently
there was room In the hospital folr
those who really needed care. Physicians today, hy the use of similar
ruues, have ut*covered many "hospital  ������iackrri*."
