Array ������������������irrvr--:  CRESTON, B.C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,  ������������������)���������������������������������������������������������������'  k  K  i  _ i  xhibition  Success Throu  Cooking  are  Entries aiid Exhibits Double Those of  1916  Department a Big Feature  Evenly Divided���������Many Socks for Red G  Offerings-���������Flower Show Hurt by Dry SdatiSn.  "Twice as good a show tis last year,"  is the very businesslike phrase of a  citizen describing the 191? fall fair of  the Creston and District Women's  Institute, which was held in Mercantile Hall on Wednesday afternoon.  And the expression is not wide of the  mark, for both in the matter of classes  in which awards were made as vtzgll as  in the total of entries made this year's-  exhibition easily shows a 100 per cent  gain over the 1916 show.  The juvenile department inauguart-  *-d this year was not as largely  patronized as anticipated, and the  number on contestants in * the packed  apple section was lighter than the  prizes' offered warranted, but beyond  these the number and the quality of  the exhibits exceeded the* hopes of the  most optimistic.  As predicted there -was & grand,  display in eyery section in the cooking  department,, the competition for the  red and blue tickets in the several  bread sections was both keen and  ������atensive, and but little lighter for  ���������;;:.iliev..:.������^!pje v^djv 1^  ���������. :j#ix!mii&^^  smd roilsVcandV;^ without  number. JTaking the display as "a  whole the Judges in this section, Mesdames Spratt, McMurtrie and Fraser  (Deer Lodge), lEust haye had a sfcren-  ous three or four hours of it placing  the awards ������6 uniform was the entire  showing.      .%-���������  And in the, fancy work Mesdames  Piper, Blair and Loasby (Sirdar), the  judges, must; have had an equally  difficult task to perform, for the show  of needlework was equally representative and of the same uniform excellence.  And its the same story in the other  lines all the way through the list  barring plants and flowers which did  not have as large an entry list, but at  that the show was a good one considering tbe very dry - season the Valley  has gone through.  In the line of honors at prize-win  ing Mrs. M. Young stands llrst with a  showing of four firsts and four  seconds, and is awarded the Andy  Miller special prize in that connection.  Mrs. Cook is close up with Uvo firsts  and n. third, and Mrs. Fairhead next  with four ftrsts and ono second. In  the juvenile section Mies Estella McKelvey takes tho Dr. Henderson $5  prize for biggest prize winner with  three firsts, with Lyda Johnson next  with two firsts and a second. Mrs.  Cook swept the boards in tho butter  class, winning flrBt "in the two classed  upon, whllo iit bruadmuking Mrs. I-Iay-  (lo-ri. and Mrs. Ootterill broke oven,  oach getting a first and [second in the  two classes entered.

Middle-  ton, Victoria, proylncihl "horticulturist, who wns hwo to .f udgo tho packed  applo*, and Jak, Cook, president of  tho farmers' institute.

May has received the sad  news that her husband, Sprgt. Frank  May, was killed in action on August  5th Frank was well known here and a  popular member of the younger set  and it is with1 sincerest regret we note  his untimely but glorious death. And  the sympathy of his many friends is  extended to his widow in her sad  bereavement.  Wynndel has four hoys less now,  anil how it is going to survive the  winter is a serious question. On Tuesday Eliaa and Raynvald Uri, -'Baby"  Carl Carlson and Nelse Ramstad, left  for Arrow Park, on the Arrow Lakes,  where they have taken a contract for  getting out timber and do not intend  to be back till spring. Words cannot  express our sorrow at their departure.

Miss Georgie Cartwright has returned to Baynes, where she. will be in  charge of the school for another year.  V Erickson was practically deserted  on Wednesday afternoon especially,  all the adult population being at Creston for the fall fair. The exhibitors  from here, too, brought home morrf  than their share of the prizes, 'Jwe are  informed.      ��������� -.    -' V * *  Now, that the tomato shipping season is practically oyer a; good soaker  of a rain will be welcome, if only to  lay the dust.  ftSttmy Paw Ymm&SmBm  With tlio exception of tho Huscroft  aohooV all tho nthor M������>nt������ r.f lo-tvninp-  in tho Valley opened Tuesday with  brand new teachers.

Amaranth.'*
"All!     She   is   a   member!"
"And evidently a well-acu-Uonicd
one. < )ne of the original foundation,
I should think, from what I saw*. 1
am not sure whether she saw me. at

didn't. However, lhc point was that
1 saw her. 1 also saw her in what
appeared to be very .secret conversation with another member, a man

"Son   of   Shyloek   von   Koon?"

"Xo.      1    think'   he's   something

Koon left. They never left. King,
irom   the   time  1   saw  them."
���'Pooh! Some     other     entrance.
That's all."
"No!" said Avory. "Thore is no
other entrance. And now- I'll tell vou
something else. This fact���plain, "undoubted fact���made uic begin to
think pre Ity hard. And then I remembered tliat 1 had seen .several
people, whom 1 know well as habitues oi the club, iu there about midnight, and 1 began to ask myself if
1 had seen them leave. NVnv, I've a
good memory, and 1 cau trust it, and
I'm dead certain of this���in addition
to von Roon and Mrs. Tressingham.
there were several people in the
Amaranth who hadn't left it at two
o'clock. I'd take my dying oath, as
the vulgar are so fond of saying, iu
at any rate three cases���lack Ihuel-
dene, the actor ,hadn't left: 'Captain
Unices���you know him���-he hadn't
left; and there was l.ydia Liukinshaw
you know, of the Hilarious, and it
would indeed have been a miracle if
she could havo left without my seeing her! So, where are those people? What are they doing there? The
rules arc strict. Besides, there's another thing. If Cue police saw anybody leaving that club after its proper hours, there'd be enquiries made.
Now. what do you think oi it, King?"
Avory's host had lighted his Turk-
i.-'h pipe and sat dreamily ������molting it.
He shook his head.
'"Don't know. It seems queW.
Tliat is. if it's as you say. But Jf
cling to my first opinion���there's another   entrance."

Tradesmen's?"
"The   entrance   for   both   is   in     lhe
rea."
"These   people   might   haye   left   by
he  area.  then,  before   two.*'
Avory  got  up.
"Hot   King!
" i hen  i
tr   entrance,"'
'   "Servants'?
Is  that  likely?'
"No, it ��� isn't likely. """ But���well,
what next?"
_ "Well, I'm going lo find out more.
i"m going to be still more, inquisitive. In the. meantime, a.s you're such
a chap for using your brains, try to
consider litis problem, and see if you
tan suggest anything. Of course,
I've got a theory."
King looked an intoYrogalive as
Avory made for the door. And Avory
laughed.
"Yes," he said. "And my theory
is that the Amaranth is a cloak that
covers-    what ?"
CHAPTlvR   XII.
Banister   King   Takes  a   Hand
leaving his question unanswered,
Avory throw his friend a careless nod
and went away, and Banister King
presently heard the door across the
landing loudly closed. He himself
sat for some time devoting his energies to his Turkish pipe, staring
meanwhile at the fantastic covering
which he had thrown over the green
jade linage. But at last he laid thc
pipe aside, rose to his feet, and glanced at the dial of an old French clock
vhich   stood   ou   his   mantle-piece.
"A quarter past three," he murmured; 'a quarter past three in thc
morning. Wherefore, as this is the
last week in June, the. sun is due to
rise over the microcosm called London is just about half au hour. We
will go out  and catch  her lirst rays."
Thereupon Banister King, having
drawn his curtains and admitted a
flood of light, tntiiicd out his lamps
and looked about him. The incense of
the censer was emitting a last faint
curl of smoke; he lifted the arabesque
lid and crushed out the siik uklering
grains with the tip of his linger; that
done, he removed the censer to a
cabinet crowded with su��:h curiosities and lifted the image, divested of
its covering, to a pedestal which
stood in the corner of the.  rom.    He
stood for a hi in uic regarding it cynically.
''You are. ugly enough at all times,
my friend," he observed; "but you
are never quite so abominably ugly
as in the light of day. That is why
you stand in the corner. And the
more 1 look at you, the more J wonder what was in the mind of the -man
whose art fashioned you!"
With a laugh, King turned away
into a room which led out of bis
sitting room; a room as plain and
unremarkable, as the other was bizarre and to be. wondered al. There,
was a narrow camp bed in one corner; there was a dressing table furnished with a very full supply of toilet articles; there was one occasional
table and one chair; and there was a
massive wardrobe, lavishly. supplied
with drawers and cupboards. It was,
in .short, a room in which a man
might take great pains about dressing, and in which he could sleep in
Spartan   fashion.

DrowR!i:2T Accidents
Ship Losses Tremendous
Norway's losses of ships in the U-
boat warfare for the six months ended June 29, says a Christiania despatch, were about 4,490,000 tons. Indiscriminate U-boat attacks resulting
in several sinkings have just', compelled the Swedish fishing fleet on
the coast of Norway outside the German danger zone to suspend fishing
and return home before thc end of
the  season   after   heavy  losses.

Many    Lives     Uselessly     Sacrificed
Through Carelessness
Each year many lives are lost    by
drowning     accidents.        Carelessness
aud  bravado* are   the     chief    causes
consequently  many  lives    might    be
saved by the exercise of caution. '
Learning- to swim is of course the
first essential in the. preventing ol
drownings, but, even in this, there
is an element of danger, as the learn-"
er is often tempted to go beyond his
depth before fully competent tb take
care of himself. To keep within his
depth is the only safe way for the
beginner,
Carelessness in the use of rowboats
and canoes has claimed many victims. Ordinary common sense only
is necessary to overcome these
drowning accidents. These frail craft
arc only intended for the use of those
who know how to use them, and.
safety depends upon the occupants
refraining from moving "about.
The use of high-speed motor boats
of. late has added its chapter to the
record of lives lost by drowning.
Lack of speed restriction on our inland lakes and rivers has encouraged
the "speed fiend/' and consequently
many accidents are due to his running down and swamping rowboats*
and canoes, as well as collisions with
other motor boats.
These accidents are avoidable, an-"?,
thc most elementary application oi
'safety first1 principles would save to
Canada many needlessly wasted lives.

Cost of Preserving:  Greatly Exaggerated  Women Now Determined to Save the  Fruit Crop  Last summer, many women did not  putaip their regular supply of homemade preserves; and bitterly they regretted it. Tliey became scared at  hvhat they,called the high price of  sugar. . When sugar reached 7 1-2  cents a pound, they let thc strawberries and cherries go hy. When  sugar sold at 8 cents and 8 1-2 cents,  they permitted thc luscious peaches,  pears, plums and apples to rot on tbe  ground.  But never again. This summer will  see a genuine, old time revival iu  homemade preserving; because the  women of Canada now realize what a.  foolish extravagance it was to do  without, preserves; especially when  the increased cost of putting them uo  is infinitesimal.  As a matter of fact, every woman  can prove���������with her first lot of  strawberries, that thc increased cost  of^ sugar is surprisingly small.  Turning back the files of papers  publishing market prices, w*e find  that in 1912, 1913 and 19.14, up to  the outbreak of war" the average  price of granulated sugar was 5 1-2  cents a pound. Today the best granulated sugar retails at 81-2 cents.  This is an average of 3 cents a  pound for the whole of the country.  A quart jar of preserved berries  .or fruit, requires but-half a pound  of sugar; so that the increased cost  of preserving, clue to the increased  cost of sugat-, is only 1 1-2 cents a  quart, compared with the cost ot  preserving before thc war when  sugar was unusually cheap.  Now is thc time for the women of  Canada io come gallantly to thc aid  of the country, and help to conserve  our food supplies. The fruit crop  this year promises to be V record  one, both in - quality and quantity.  Foreign markets being closed -^because of thc shortage in transportation, it rests almost entirely with our  homemakers as to whether this crop  worth millions is to "be a .source of  profit or a complete loss.  With ' the home pantries filled  with delicious, jams, preserves and  jellies: ,with these delicacies served  for dessert instead of pics and  cakes enormous quantities.oi -wheat  will be released for the troops ih  France and for the starving children  in  Belgium.  A _careful consideration of tlic  abo^e facts will show to the Canadian housewife that sugar is not too  high for preserving profitably; that  the increased cost of sugar has not  materially increased the cost of  homemade preserves; and that preserving is both an economy and a  patriotic  action.

Enemy Aviators Afraid  Captured Flier Relates Why He Slid  to Earth Instead of Behind Own Lines  C'crni-'.n aviators are being told by  their superior officers that capture by  the French or. Americans means tor-  lure. Evidence comes from the froni  of the enemy's growing lad*- of air  morale and tlic fear with which he  enters combat. Near the headquarters ol the Lafayette Escadrille, Aviator Gailcr, FrencU (Iyer of an escadrille working in conjunction with  thc American birduicn, attacked a  German biplane, Twenly-live well  placed shots wounded the enemy pilot in the urm. Tho. latter, obsessed  by fear of capture became so fright-  cited that he almost losi control oi  his machine, lie hurriedly and ..ungracefully planed down lo lhe nearest point and landed.

Facilitating** Train  Movements In IL S.  American     Roads     Taking     Drastic  Measures to Speed Up Freight  Shipments  In order to facilitate train movements and release passenger train  crews for_ other Vyiork, the railways  of the United States are making drastic reductions compared to which  those in Canada early this year appear mild. Thus," for instance, the  Pennsylvania railroad has' eliminated  no less than 102 trains, or.more than  double the number, taken off the  whole of the Canadian railways. This  will cut \down *he passenger movement by an amount equivalent to  2,268,000 train miles ~per annum or  over 6,500-4rain miles, every wectc  day. A number of parlor cars, restaurant cars and observation cars  are being discontinued. The Boston  and Maine has taken off no less than  255 trains, or more than five times  the number taken off in Canada, saving approximately 41,000-train miles  per week. Sfrenuous efforts are also  being made to increase the carload  and to impress on merchants the importance of rapid unloading so that  the freight equipment shall be kept  busy to its utmost capacity, and terminal should be Jcept clear. The  American railroads realize that speed  in freight movement is one of the  greatest aids they can give to help  win the war and according to all reports are achieving remarkable results.

Subscription: $2 a year in advance;  $2.50 to United States points.  C. F. Hates. Owner and Editor.  GRESTON. B.C.. FRIDAY. SEPT.  Western Liberalism is beginning  to show itself unmistakably on the  -side of conscription. As to where  the rank and file of Liberals stood  there has never been serious doubt.  The recent convention at Winnipeg,  however, put some of the so-called  Liberal leaders in an awkward  predicament, and it is only now  that tbey are finding it up to  them to state just exactly where  they are at in terms that permit of  no misinterpretation.  The first to take this stand are  Premier Nbrris and Attorney-  General Hudson of the Manitoba  government, both of whom now  declare they are out to support  straight Tory conscription candidates if need be, if the Liberals  fail to remove Sir Wilfrid Laurier  :*s leader and come out four square  on compulsory military service.  The choice Messrs. Norris and  Hudson have made is one that  ���������jvery Liberal has to face. They  ean abandon their convictions and  follow Laurier; or they can abandon  Laurier and stay with their convictions. Or, to strike closer home,  they can desert Laurier, or they  can desert the boys in the trenches.  Too, there can be no avoiding a  decision by refraining from voting  as these gentlemen announce their  intention of doing if need be. To  remain away from the poles is  equivalent, to voting anti-conscription. He who is not for us is  against us in this case, and the  situation is too serious to admit of  any "slacking."  With the exception of a few case-  hardened Grits local Liberals are  making no bones of their intention  to forget party convictions in the  coming contest and if, as announced in the press at nomination-  convention time, Mr. Anstie proposes to win or lose on the Winnipeg platferm, if other parts in the  constituency are in the same  humor as Creston Valley, the  Liberal candidate may as well  prepare for the worst. Hereabouts  he will hardly get enough votes to  wad a gun.  assigned him we doubt if an instance can tbe cited where he failed  to enforce th������_ law promptly, and  on friend and enemy alike. Even  those who may have had personal  differences with him will not  hesitate to say that he was an  officer who knew his duty and never  failed in its execution.  Personally he had his likes and  dislikes, and failings like the rest  of all humans, but surely a responsible provincial law executive has  not so summarily dealt with him  for faults that, all flesh is heir to.  Interested politicians may offer  this as an excuse, but the general  public are not accepting it just yet,  and unless an official statement is  forthcoming to clear up the incident the matter is one the Brewster  administration may yet find to  work to its disadvantage, in these  parts at least.  The impression will not down���������  and some little indiscreet talk lends  color to it���������that "there were reasons" for this particular dismissal  at this time. And, * be it said, if  the "reasons'" are correct, they do  not tend to convince the public  that eet-taiii legislation that comes  into effect shortly will have  the strict attention it should have  (as well as some other statutes  made and provided)���������that is if an  officer charged with the enforce  ment of law is to remain perman  ently in Creston.  Unpleasant     and     all     as    the'  situation   may  seem this is  about  the way the rank and   file  of our  citizens view the whole thing, and  in   view   of  the facts  as we have  them there seems   no  dodging the  conclusion arrived at.    If  those in  authority   c#n   offer anything   to  palliate   matters   they   should   be  heard   from at" once.    At  a   time  like  -this   when     the   war,    more  especially, is showiilg  us  how hollow   our   citizenship   is  in spots,  incidents   that   seem   to   indicate  j that   firmness   in    enforcing   our  common   laws   in   high,    or   low,  places is not expedient must not go  unchallenged���������nor unexplained by  those, and those only, competent to  state the facts, and  uine-uiu  *���������?

To the great big majority of the  people the act reflects discredit on  the attorney-general who sanctioned the dismissal, as well as those  who clamored for such ill-timed  action, and certainly does not tend  to reassure that the enforcement of  law and ordor, without fear or  favor, is desired in theso parts.  Strictly speaking only one, or  both, of two reasons can excuse  such drastic action: Did Constable  Forrester fail to do his duty, or was  he a political partisan? Tho letter  '"dispensing with his services",  makes neither charge, nor any  other of any sort.  Certainly had he been open to  dismissal on the grounds of political  activity his head would havc come  off many months before, as iu tho  case of Andy Miller, who wan din-  nnHH-'d for that reason, fireMiunnhly,  eight, months n/������*o.  Am to his ability lo look alter  ���������ivery Uetutt ot the numerous duties  At tbe time of writing all the  indications are that the international drainage meeting here on  Sept. 29th will be very much worth  while.  Definite assurance has been received from Victoria that the  ministers in charge of the departments directly interested will be  here, as well as the comptroller of  water riguts and, doubtless, Mr.  Biker, the resident engineer for  Kootenay, who is thoroughly informed on the project.  A conference of the international  drainage committee is being held  at Bonner's Perry this week to line  up the Idaho and U.S. authorities  whom, we are assured, will be here  with a really representative delegation, prepared to set forth  definitely the exact reclamation  situation across the line as disclosed by recent engineering and other  investigations.  All of whioh will bo decidedly  heartening to those who have been  looking forward to tho consummation of reclamation���������for a sooro of  years in somo cases.  That the projoot is well worth  undertaking nono seriously protest.  Tho fertility of the soil has boon  demonstrated. That B.C. sadly  needs the increased agricultural  production this area would afford  nono deny. The udmireble all-  round location of tlio tract of land  is admitted. It is felt, too, that if  tho work is done in conjunction  vvith Idaho tho pro-rata cost per  aero would bo far from excessive,  and granted the land in sold on  i-itr-iictivc terms at an advance on  and   interest  expenses the   entire  area would sell readily.  In view of the good faith the  U.S. authorities have shown in  their recent survey it is felt that  when the situation is placed before  the B.C. interests here this month  that the samecareful look-into the  matter may reasonably be expected  next season by the provincial  authorities, and an authoritative  pronouncement as to the feasability  of the project ensue in as short a  period as is necessary to elapse to  do the needed engineering work  thoroughly. This much, at least,  the situation surely warrants.  Granted total reclamation can be  assured, by that time surely B.C.  will be out of the financial maze it  is now attempting, extrication and  that for an essential industry, and  with such gilt edge security, with  an international partnership to  boot, funds should be fairly readily  procurable.  On this reclamation project  while we are far from being out of  the wilderness recent events seem  to give us a glimpse sometimes of  the promised land and the expeoted  benefits it will confer on those who  who have borne the burden and  heat of pioneer days, so to speak.

Smith had to take a month off on  account of,a minor illness, going to  LaHarye, .,the Canadian base, to  recuperate; and while there he got into training with a machine gun squad,  which runs sixVmen and a corporal to  each gun, In Marqh he wa-r shifted  to Ypres, at which point the heayy  fighting is a matter that needs no recalling; The first two weeks in June  were V particularlyf active ,-vpd at one  engagement at that time he had ten  days of steady attack and counter  attack,"with casualties that were the  heaviest of the" war to date.

It  was in this territory that he suffered  the machine gun ^bullet   wound that  has epst him his right leg.    It was in.  a  very early    morning    attack    on  Oetober 8th that his company got the  order to "go eyer top" for the capture  of a German trench about 200   yards  beyond.    He   had got  to   within  50  yards   of   the    objective     when. the  machine gun fire, got him in the leg,  as well as slightly wounding his hand.  In the rush forward he was not missed  by his comrades,  and in  order to get  shelter from the   heavy fire he had to  drag himself into a.shell hole.   In this  position   it     *was    impossile   for   his  friends to locate him and in  the. galling gunfire that continued it was impossible   to crawl baek  to safety, so  there  was nothing .for it but  to lie  there until night, when he crawled into   the   British   trench     successfully  NEWS OF KOOTENAYS  CANADIAN  ymtm/MMmstmJim  JL  ..,!*���������<    ,���������-���������  oes  If low prices count our entire stocks  in the above lines will tie cleared out  in   short   order.

Several operations were  necessary during lhe latter part of  October and up till June before the  limb was in shape to allow him to sail  for Canada, on June 10th. The trip  across was quite uneventful. . Along  with him on the trip were about 75  other amputation cases and a great  many trbops being sent back, the men  being medically unfit. He had a week  of it in Quebec, and was detained for  final treatment at Toronto until  August 25th.

Ry USES IS DEMONSTRATED  FUTURE OF THE AIRPLANE AND THE SUBMARINE  It Is Very Difficult To Set Limits To Effectiveness of Airplanes  Used In! Large Numbers In Destroying Enemy Gun-Making  And Munition Plants, Paralyzing Military Activity  o-  Thc unprecedented achievement of  the French aeronaut,- Sergeant Gallois  in wiping out single-handed a large  section of thc lvruppr munition works  at Essen in Germany, is one of tlic  most notable adventures 'in the history of the war. There was nothing  accidental iii his success. He knew  what he. had to do; h** planned hi*  loute and stuck to.it; he flew across  Esrien and back, dropping bombs on  the works; and he returned lo the  spot whence he had started seven  hours before. The total distance covered during that interval was nearly  four hundred and sixty-seven miles.  Fortunately he was left unwounded,  and practically uninjured by his  strenuous  adventure.  Interesting, as the achievement of  Gallois is, it is still more important.  It: shows, as no previous incident has  flone.,- the potentiality of the "airplane  for military purposes. If one aviator can liy so far without injury and  ������lc so much harm to the enemy, by  dropping a few bombs on the most  important spot in Germany, it is difficult to set limits to what might be  achieved by a few dozens of such  men. It seems altogether likely just  now that Gallois will have scores,  perhaps hundreds, of ambitious imitators, many of whom -vvill lose their  lives, but some of whom will succeed.  It should be borne in mind that to put  the Krupp gun-making and munition-  making establishment out of business  would go far to .paralyze the military  activity and destroy the-military, efficiency of the German empire.  l<*!r^.~       ^s^*..*.

Some months ago Admiral  Perry, of North Pole fame, suggested  that small but swift seaplanes might  be used effectively as destroyers of  submarines by housing them on a  "mother" warship 'from whose deck  they might make short but swift  flights to search for submarines and  drop bombs on them with fatal effect, even when submerged. As both  thc airplane and thc submarine are  recent entrants into the field of warfare, it will be increasingly interesting to watch thoir future evolution,  respectively.���������Toronto   Globe.

War is Over  "All investigations lead to the decided belief lhat there will be a  tremendous immigration of Imperial  army ex-service men to Canada after  the war," declared J.

Walker has been in the Old Country  for live months, acting on the Km-,  pi re Settlement committee, in connection with lhc settlement of soldiers.  Although not inclined to speak at  nny length on the features of hi.**.  trip, he admitted, when questioned  oit the submarine menace, that his  ���������ship wa.s chased for many miles by a  submarine and that for four eonseeu  live hours it was engaged in a running light wiih the. enemy cral'l.

One of England's foremost strategists was asked this question. Here  is liis answer:  "The whole process of this war is  a matter of lines of communication.  Ihe reason the British offensive  seems to nibble a bit of the Hindenburg line -hi the north and then  strike a few days later far to thc  south, is the vital necessity of establishing communicating lines' and  of consolidating positions.  "When the British move forward  after a terrible artillery preparation  which lias left little of the enemy  trenches but powder and corpses,  they don't find many Germans there  ���������not live ones at least. The Germans know a clay or so in advance  when a big. push is coming. They  can't help it. They fall back, to  their reserve lines in the rear, and  consolidate their guns -and men,  leady for  a   counter-attack.  "The way to ' stop this counterattack and hold the advantage we  have won is to rush up our "..heavy  guns and be ready to cut tlicm to  pieces when they try to 'come back.'  "I have.xsec-n 45 miles of railway  laid" in three days. Our engineers at  Uic front work night and day and  this is largely why, when we once  get hold of a piece of the Hindenburg  line, we holdv on to it. Bulldog tenacity, the papers call it, but it's  military knowledge and foresight  just as much. "  "Furthermore, wheii the Germans  feel sure that a certain spot at which  the British have been .haniTncring is  about to be attacked, they rush their  reserves and guns over to back up  that particular sector. That is the  time for us to strike somewhere else  while they are using all their energy  to stop ..us at another point."  Cossacks In Revolution  How They Routed Petrograd   Police  in the Znamenskaya Place  The aid given by the Cossacks to  the Russian revolution is described  in the New Republic in a diary written by an American who was present  during thc revolution and to whom  an., eyewitness told  thc  following:  "The Znamenskaya place was full  of people," hc said, "orators everywhere, especially around, the statue  in the centre of the square, and a  company of Cossacks riding around  and around the crowd. I was on the  outskirts, near the Newski, opposite  thc Goncharnaya. I looked up the  Newski. Suddenly there was a shot  behind nie, close to me. I looked  around and saw a man's arm and  hand holding a smoking revolver  straight up into the air, and then 1  saw a troop of mounted police issue  from thc Goncharnaya with naked  sabers and charge at the crowd. Suddenly a shot came from thc Cossacks  who were on my right, and the leader of the police fell down from his  horse. The Cossacks yelled and  charged the police, hacking and  swinging their whips. Thc police  broke and lied. Then," he said, "you  should have seen the crowd. People  kissed and 'hugged the Cossacks,  climbing up on the horses to reach  them. Others kisVvd aud embraced  the horses, the Cossacks' boots, stirrups, saddles. They were given cigarettes, money, cigar cases gloves,  anything and overylhing."

The instruments were  donated by'an Edmonton outfit with  the proviso that they be sent baek to  the Edmonton armory aftcr the war.  There is one Saskatchewan battalion i-f-Tcach-of the Canadian divisions  at the front and it has been stated  that a grant of $1,000 was made by  the province, of Saskatchewan to two  of these battalions. This may not be  true. It is a well known fact that every battalion in the divisions which  followed the first into the field had  a very substantial regimental fund.  These funds were created by gifts otf  money from the tow*ns and the cities  where the battalions were organized  and from profits on regimental canteens which their long periods of  training in Canada made possible as  a result of the unfortunate experience  of thc first division at Valcartier.  The colonel of this battalion aiu'  some of his friends purchased very  recently one thousand pairs of socks  for the boys, but of course unless wc  get funds from somewhere our private resources as our regimental  funds will ��������� soon be exhausted -and  there will undoubtedly be great discomfort  It may not be possible for the  province to grant money out of its  treasury, bn.it I am satisfied that if  the prominent citizens would take  the matter up, the people would be  very willing and ��������� even anxious to-  help us along. You must bc aware  of the reputation which the battalion  has gained." I have sent you a* copy  of our Christmas, annual. In this you  will read what the senior Canadian  General said of the Fifth. But his  words there have been altered by the  censor, so I am now enclosing General Carrie's statement in his own  handwriting, which I will ask you to  please preserve.  I could tell you many things but I  do not think it is- necessary. It is  sialeu that the Fifth Battalion has  gained more honors and decorations  in the field than any other Canadian  regiment, lt has beeu specially mentioned in despatches and after one  very trying engagement, Sir Douglas  Haig said, "I am proud to have a  battalion of this description in my  army and wish to thank you for the  magnificent gallantry which you have  displayed." No higher' words of  praise have ever been given to any  unit, and I am sure you all havc every reason to feel proud of Saskatchewan's representative! in the first  Canadian  division.  Will you not take the matter up in  ���������* visrorous way and perhaps a sort of  Fifth Battalion day could be- arranged throughout the province? Wc  had recently a draft of 250 men from  AA/r������t.t)-i_jr-ri ^rj<4 Estevan so men like  Dr. Mitchell and Hon. Geo. Bell  ought to bc interested. Of the thousands of reinforcements we havc had  ivith thc exception of about four hundred, all have been from Saskatchewan so that every city, town and village is or has been represented in  this unit.  1 imagine that the ladies would al  once do something if thc right ones  started things. Lt. Col.#H. M. Dyer,  D.S.O., is naturally somewhat diffident about writing you as he himself  is not from Saskatchewan, but he has  spent a great deal of his own money  on th'* boys and besides being" a very  gallant and capable soldier is a kind  and big-hearted gentleman. I have  told him that I wished to address you  in this eonneetion and he has consented. Would you be so kind as lo  "communicate with him about #tht'  battalion  and  its affairs?  I havc been greatly honored by being asked by thc 5th Battalion lo  write an introduction to this French  magazine published as a Christmas  greeting bv the officers, non-commissioned officers and men of the regiment ,to their many friends throughout the empire. There is no'hing f  would not do to oblige the 5th Battalion and so 1 comply with their request, fully realizing my inability to  do proper justice to my theme.  I am quite sure that all who had  thc pleasure of reading the "Christmas Garland/' published by this battalion in 1915, have ..been awaiting  this year's number with eager anticipation. They will.nol be disappointed and doubtless will find the 1917  number still more entertaining.  For there will bc a 1917 number.  Thc war is by no means over, nor is  the end even in sight. TJu*. struggle  must not and will not cease until the  power, which has violated every principle of right and honor, which has  ruthlessly disregarded-.Ihr rights of  neutral nations, which has treated its  most solemn obligations as 'mere  .scraps of paper', which has murdered  innocent women and children, which  ha* maltreated its prisoners, which  has bayoncttcd our wounded, shall be  forever destroyed.  As lo how the war is going lo end,  the men in the trenches have nol llu-  (.lightest doubt. J bey are lhe greatest optimists in the empire. Kven in  the dark days, now happily past, when  our men were few, when machine  gnus were very, very scarce on our  side, when we had little artillery and  le<i*i ammunition, the t-ame op'iuiisni  prevailed.

S"  But J am wandering, somewhat  from my subject. I,���������intimated iu my  opening sentence that the 5th Battalion had many friends. It richly  deserves them ail and these friends  must be intensely proud of the battalion's record. No . battalion in all  cur gallant corps has a prouder one.  During the twenty-one months the  battalion has fought.in France, it has  been "over the pa-^apet" many times,  has never failed to reach its objective, and has never been driven from  a single inch of str'ench captured or  occupied. 7t enjoys lhc absolute and  implicit confidence of all commanders and the measure of a unit's effi-  eiency is the amount of confidence  placed in it. The Fifth has resolutely and gallantly performed every  duty, nobly responded to every demand, patiently and cheerfully endured every hardship and discomfort. It has 'made ..many sacrifices,  but these have not been made in vain.  A staiii4.ai*d of devotion to duly " ha-*  been set which must be emulated*  The record of its fighting prowess  fills many a page in the glorious history of the heroic deeds of those who  so proudly wear the word Canada on  their shoulder straps, and the half has  not yet been told, lt has been 'mentioned in despatches' by the ' commander-in-chief. It has played thc  game. thank God for such battalions as thc Fifth, and there aic many  such in Britain's mighty and victorious army.

The ligures show that wheat exports increased from 11,392,788 bushels, as an average for thc preceding  nine months, lo 1-1,233,013 bushels,for  April. The. nine-months figures represent an increase of 52 per cent, as  compared with a three year pre-war  period.    (1912-14.)  Beef exports, which had shown a  comparative gain of 330 per eeui. iu  i!u iiiiu months over the pre-war  period, increased from 22,2(.'5,972  pounds to 48,211,592 pounds.

A notable decrease was in the matter of fish exports, which include  canned salmon aud dried fish. The  average of 15,122,474 pounds exported in the nine months period dropped to /,544,877 pounds l'or April.  The ligures are l'or exportation.s of  doiue-rtii:  origin  only.  It is a legal and logical principle  >hat ordinary penal laws may be applied to acts ������f w-ar that are notsjus-  tified by international law," said  Monsieur Carton De. Wiart, Belgian  minister of justice, replying to an inquiry by the Associated Press as to  his opinion of thc proposed interallied high court for the trial of officers, soldiers aud individuals guilty  of atrocities in  this war.  "The Hague convention," continued Mr. De Wiart, "says that 'belligerents have not an unlimited right to  choose means to harm the enemy.'  All civilized countries admit that  acts perpetrated during* a state of  war and which are not technically  'acts of war' may be punished by the  ordinary civil courts or the military  courts, whether they are crimes orV  mere offenses. In fact, the 'German  manual of laws bf war' fucntions a  considerable number of prohibitions  as, for instance, those regarding the  employment of certain weapons and  thc  killing of  wounded   sofdiers.  '"Whoever    should    violate   those,  prescriptions',' the manual says, 'shall  be    responsible    to    his country.    If  he is  taken prisoner,  military penalties could be applied to him.'  "The same principle is stated in instructions of the United States of  1863,. which form a wonderful code  of human principles.  . "These instructions say that  crimes committed in time of war  may be punished according to ordinary penal laws, not only by the  army to which the criminals belong,  but also by the ariny by which they  are captured.  "Under the circumstances it is obvious," the minister continued, "that  Germans who have killed, have stolen, have set fire to buildings without  necessities of war, may be judged by  the courts of the allied armies and  allied countries. Some applications  of this principle have already been  made. If the guilty fall into our  hands --.ve must not hesitate; we are-  obliged to judge him, but let us not  judge' contumacious enemy officers  or soldiers, as there is a chance that  we shall not be able to execute the  sentence. .  "Even when we have the guilty  man in our hands there are difficulties in obtaining evidence against  him, and if He argues, as he certainly will) that hc acted only by order,  what can wc answer.If w*e wish to  remain just and fair. I am of thc  opinion, that, in these questions  lawyers ami magistrates will have to  apply strictly tlte principles of international law. If this application of  justice is not sufficient���������and, unfortunately, I fear that such may be the  case���������competent authorities should  take oilier measures to give satisfaction to public opinion in regard to  German   atrocities.''  "What may these measures be'  There are, first, reprisals; there is  another solution, the consequences of  the. third paragraph of The Hague  convention, which was proposed by  German delegates and which reads  as follows: "The belligerent who  should violate ' the dispositions of  the convention ' shall eventually lnjve  lo indemnify the people he has robbed, lie shall- he held responsible  for all acts done by persons bclong-  .ing to his army.'  "This"Is thc great point," said Mr.  Do Wiart in conclusion, "and iu uiV  opinion there can be no peace without  such  reparation."
