"That's my price," said Parminter.  calmly. "As to robbery, I don't  know what you want in that study,  and-it doesn't concern me. But I've  a pretty good idea that you're after  some of those government papers,  and that you can very "well afford to  pay me for helping you. And as I  said before, my price is five hundred pounds���������not one penny less, Mrs.  Tressingham."  "I've done a good deal for you.  Parminter, one way and another,"  said Hilda, "and it's an extortionate  price!"  "Maybe," replied Parminter, "but  it'll just make up the two-thousand  pounds that Waters and me need for  getting married and starting that  boarding house in Bayswater. You'd  better give me an open cheque, Mrs.  Tressingham."  Hilda had no choice. So that part  of the affair was settled, and before  evening she knew that Jarvis was  amenable. There was nothing to do  then but to arrange with von Roon  to be at the side window of Harts-  dale House on the fateful night, to  receive the despatch box from her  and to hand it back when lie had  done with it. They had already ar-  langed that he was to examine its  contents at Hilda's .rooms .in Dcwn  Street. Von Roon could hasten  there with it, open it, do what ^ he  wanted, and hasten back. It might  be that as much as an hour would  not be necessary. But as they completed arrangements she; laughed.  "It's  a     queer     thing."    she  "The  only  thing   I  hate  and  dislike  about this    adventure    is���������what    do  you  think?"  "Can't think," answered von Roon.  "It's   the  forced  waiting    in     that  house between your taking the thing  i away   and  bringing    it    back,"     she  i sauk    "That waiting will.be  enough  to  drive me mad!"  when he came in from the house, he  sat up and read; sometimes he found  Letty inclined for half an hour's light  chat. But on this particular night  i-etty was away from town���������gone  down to Ashminister for the weekend���������whither George _ was to follow  her next day. Marcia, it war true,  was in the house, and was still in  evidence, having only just come in  from a lecture which she had been  giving-somewhere in the- wilds of  East Kam. But George had no desire to hold converse with his sister  at that hour of the night. Marcia,  after one of her lecture evenings,  was always inclined to be politically  pugnacious and to develop great  mental activity of the controversial  order.

The largest  increase is in the wheat crop, which  in 1916 is estimated to have yielded  $46,722,588, while a conservative estimate for the present-year shows that  She threw out a hint or two I the wheat crop in Manitoba    should  Western Cans-   Cc-cpcntivc Associations to T?ke ������p  on this occasion of her disposition to  talk if her brother was similarly disposed, but George made no response.

"My scalp began by being very itchy  and burning  which  would   keep   me  yield $199,239,760, or nearly_ $153,000-  000 more than iu 1916. The^ latter  estimate is based upon the price of  $2.05 per bushel* which in view of  the fact that the wheat is grading  high, seems a very fair basis for an  estimate. The acreage in wheat this  year is "not so great as in 1916, but  the average yield per acre is almost  seven bushels more.  While-the oat crop Is not so good  this year as in 1916, the estimated  yield being lower despite an increased acreage, the increased price will  make the value of the oat crop exceed last year's by more than five  miiiion  dollars.  Dairy products will show a marked increase, and although it is yet too  early to estimate the total cash receipts for butter, cheese, milk and  cream, it seems safe to say that the  increase will be considerably more  than $5,000,000. Last year dairy products were valued at $4,483,614.

CHAPTER XXIII.  Under Suspicious Circumstances  On   that    Friday    night���������a    night  which  was  to  be  more  fateful    and  eventful to him than he dreamed of  ���������George  Ellington went    home    to  Curzon   Street  all  unconscious     that  he   was   the  victim  of    more    plots  than  one.    He had no icka that his  movements   had   been   watched     and  noted all  the    afternoon    from    the  time  he left   the  admiralty    to    the  moment   he  left  the  house   of   commons.    It never entered his thoughts  that watchful  eyes were keeping    a  strict  observation  on  the  small   despatch box which he had carried about  with him for hours; that those same  eye?  assured themselves that it was  in his hand when he stepped out of  'his   motor   brougham     r.nd .   entered  Hartsdalc  House.      He  entered    all  unconscious, all  unsuspecting, placed  his  despatch   box  where he    always  placed   it���������on   a   certain   part   of   his  desk���������and  dismissed  it and    the  affairs of the day from his mind. Years  before, his father, whose shrewdness  lie had more respect for than he ever  openly admitted, had laid it down to  him as a sound rule of life that when  , j a man  comes into his house for the  '   night's vest, he. should leave- all business affairs and worries on the doorstep.      Old    Ellington    had    quoted  various  examples    to    him���������that    of  Tvl'v.  Gladstone for one of them���������and  Geo/i^e had sufficient appreciation of  tliiv,.'. examples to be emulous of folio-. in::;   them.     Therefore,   when     lie  left   his   study  that:  midnight  he  left  rdl thought of state papers and state  secrets behind its door.   He went into  his  dining  room,  ate. a  sandwich  and sipped the one glass .of whiskey  and  soda  which  he  allowed  himself,  and, having smoked half a cigarette,  vawnrd and went to bed.

Almost every elderly person had rheumatism, as well as many young people.    Medical science did not-understand the trouble���������did not know that  it was rooted in the blood.    It was  thought that    rheumatism    was ^the  mere effect of exposure to coldx and  damp, and it was treated with  liniments and hot    applications*    wnich  sometimes gave temporary relief, but  did not cure the trouble.    In    those  days  there were thousands of rheumatic cripples.   Now, medical science  understands that   rheumatism    is    a  disease of the blood,, and that  with  good,  rich,  red  biood  any man    or  woman of any age can defy rheumatism can be cured 6y killing the poison  in  the blood  which  causes'  it.  There are many elderly people who  have never felt a twinge of rheumatism, and many who have conquered  It hy simply keeping1 their blood rich  and pure.    The blood making, blood  enriching   qualities    of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills  is becoming  everjr    year  more widely knows,  an-J  it is    the  more genera^ use of these pills that  has robbed rheumatism of    :ts    terrors.

"For more than a month on a  northern sector of the line the British had been secretly mining beneath the German trenches." said Dr.  Davis. "The work was almost complete. During the operations several canary birds were, as u.su-il, kept  iu the excavations to warn the work-  era of the presence of fire damp,  which is fatal to the birds. One little songster, however, escaped from  its job, flew into the middle of No  Ivfan'i) Land and "aUftlUliirt on a bush  began to ning;  "Consternation reigned in the Brll-  ioh linen. If the bird had been discovered by the Germans the work ot  v/������������f1r.< would .to for naught, ay the  enemy could easily interpret the  meaning of its presence and prepare  to combat the napping t operations.

To make doubly sure of there  being some financial income for the  returned heroes the government  lias just arranged for. the establishment of a pulp and paper mill in  the centre of the tract of land set  apart for the soldier-farmers.  The undertaking assures a  guaranteed minimum price for both  pulpwood and pine, and in addition  the small-town that will spring up  on account - of the starting of/the  paper mill will ensure a considerable right at home demand for the  produce of the farms which will  comeVas the timber is  being taken  material     prosperity    of    .British  Columbia.

Here, a similar scheme could be  followed to at least equal advantage by reclaiming the Kootenay  flats, putting returned soldiers on  it on suitable sized tracts; have  them specialize, on sugar beets,  aiiu secure tne erection ci the  necessary   plant    to   manufacture  under  government  supervision  or  government control.  A study of the matter reveals  the fact that there are few if any  obstacles to such a move���������once  reclamation is accomplished. No  one doubts there is a splendid  market available for sugar, It  iias been positively demonstrated  that these bottom lands will grow  wonderful crops of sugar beets.  And the labor problem is admirably  solved bp having at hand the Indian population to help with the  beet harvest. The labor question,  which militates against the beet  sugar industry in other parts of  Canada, certainly need not exist  here. .  Outdoor work for the returned  soldiers is a very pressing question  just now, because it has been found  gassed CHimot stand indoor life.  If life is to be made pleasant and  to run its alotted span these survivors of gas attacks in most easeR  m������������������t have the outdoor life.

The receipts  and expenditure of the Institute  proper were equally satisfactory,  and after lsndincr & heir'incr hand  to the Reclamation Conference,  Halifax relief and other necessary  causes there is still a fine balance  to the good.  President Cook's address and  opening remarks convinced that in  every possible direction the Institute had been doing its bit along  orthodox as well as other lines to  advance the welfare of the Valley.  And in' his report Mr. Compton  gave additional evidence that the  directors had rendered useful  service, and were still at work on  one or two projects on which a  definite statement will be made  shortly. vy_.  With the election, and officers  elected, no reasonable complaint  can be made on any score. The  best of material was offered in eaoh  instance and the vote  polled by all  of  them   was  invariably  so ^close  that neither the victor or vanquish- |0ffieer"nas had  ed coniu teel unduly elated   or an-  consolably depressed.  Chief interest, of course, centered  around    the   choice   of   secretary.  For real, or imaginary, sins oi* both  omission and comission   (one of tho  latter being bin blunt and sometimes unconventional way of discussing   war  and   political issues)  JY1 r.

'JJB9 Bm Si*? mla  It i������i mamntfnchir^d  \  HoweVer, the outcome was Mr.  Lidgate's re-election by a very satisfactory majority.  All of which is well. Taking it  by and large he has bandied the  work quite satisfactorily when one  remembers that transportation and  market conditions have been far  from ideal, and that all of us have  a right to political free speech  within reasonable bounds���������and  said bounds not subject to the  other fellow's, or illogical fixture.  In this latter regard THE Review has at least some fellow-  feeling for Mr. Lidgate. Because  we went at it hammer and tongs  for the Unionists a Laurierite  boycott was launched (and is still  sticking if slow payment of slightly-overdue subscription accounts  are any criterion) regardless of  surely some little personal and  journalistic service rendered the  community.  In     losing    an     efficient     and  agressive   president   in   Mr. Cook,  the Institute  is  equally   fortunate  in   having  named   Jas.   Adlard as  his successor.

Announcement has been made of  the development "of an American ma-  eiuue gun* capable of continuous .'firing says Popular Mechanics." Ammunition is carried to its feed block  by an endless belt kept fiiied by an  automatic reloading .mechanism. Supply hoppers contain from 2,500 . to  10,000 cartridges and are replenished  or replaced without interfering with  operation. Most machine guns fire  500 shots a minute and are supplied  with ammunition by belts holding  approximately 250 cartridges. Thus  they are able to fire uninterruptedly  for only thirty seconds, '.while" the  new instrument spits thousands of j  missiles without pausing, and thereby, does the work of two ordinary  nieces.

Since the. 18th inst.  S fifty women and    young    girls have  I been working at concrete dugouts at  j Leke. As Leke is in the zone of fire,  and was shelled no later than yesterday, this is another case in which we  cannot understand the action   of the  authorities, ff this isn't taken by way  ot reprisal, then it is a shameful deed  on the part of Germany, which cannot  be   surpassed  even   in     imagination.   The civilian population of Leke  was  evacuated three  or four    weeks  ago, and now women  and    children  are  compelled to work at the    con-  j crete dugouts of the village.  ''It is a shame that such steps  should be taken, whether there is  reason for it or not. I am sure of  the facts which I state, for it is my  duty to take a gang of forty-seven  women to Leke every morning and  bring them back in *he evening."  An illustration of the German disregard for the laws of war and humanity can be found in an incident  which occurred the-other night near  Koutholst Forest. The British heard  cries of "Stretcher bearers 1" from  No Man's Land. It naturally was  assumed that a wounded man was  calling for help, and Red Cross bearers rushed_out through the darkness  to render assistance.

Omen  The contest between democracy  and kaiserism is one that we cannot  help following with -the warmest  hopes for -.lie triumph of the German people;    not only for our ��������� own  Fit  The First Contingent  sake, but for the sake  Gernvmy winch     tiiis  XJi t*A XLl���������\\k  erll until we have destroy-las beyond the appeal of generous or  jd the structure on which German  foreign policy rests and .has rested  for more than a century. We shall  not be free from recurring dangers  or. the side of Germany until we  have proved that Germany will be  the worst sufferer from such wars.  x^o one need think twice of any ^appeal to German conscience or German humanity; these are attributes  which have still to. be acquired by  Germany, ��������� s'O' far "as international relations are concerned. Our sole  chance for permanent peace lies in  establishing the fact in the German  mind thatVthere is no profit in international thieving, assassination and  other equally''-characteristic Teutonic  enterprise.  Whatever he may be at home,  abroad the German is a Hun, a barbarian. Kc murders, he pilfers, he  defies and he destroys solely to profit  himself. He does these things because in the past he has profited by  them. He can see'upon the map,  written in German colors, the proof  of the wisdom of such policies, as he  has pursued them in the past. And  as long as this evidence stands uncontradicted we shall have the German- barbarian.'��������� coming ' out of the  north on plundering expeditions hi  the future as we have had him in the  past ever since Rome had to face  similar incursions.  We shall not. get permanent ;peaoc  by treating a Hun as if he were not  a Hun.

The way to treat a  ���������Germaw while Germans follow their  present inethodtf,; is as a common  P^riil to all civilized mankind. Since  the Geriuau employs the methods of  Dcen "DeriiiiiLcG.  kind methods.    When one is  gener  6us to a German he ^lans to take ad-  vantPO'e   C\(   flip*-    (rnnprncitw   trv    ������.^vK   e\v  murder; this is his international history, never more conspicuously illustrated than here in America. " Kindness he interprets as fear, regard for  international law as proof of decadence; agitation for disarmament has  been for him the final evidence of  the degeneracy of his neighbors.  The beginning of security for .the  world and of civilization for the German will be the demonstration by  this war that the German cannot win,  cannot escape defeat, with all its fatal consequences, whenever he attacks  his neighbors solely for plunder and  for power. The whole German sys-.  tern is founded** upon military victories and the legend of successful  wars followed by profitable plundcr-  ings. This legend can be destroyed  only upon the battlefield, and under  tho contemporary British attack it  is fast being destroyed. Fools and  faint-hearts behind the line may yet  rob the dead and the living, who  have fought this war, of the fruits of  their labors and their sacrifices; tmt  only these can save a German military machine whose defeat is now1  assured if the war goes through another campaign. We are near to liberation, we arc approaching the certain realization of all that millions  have died to attain, and, as always  happens as victory approaches, those  who arc winning the fight have to  face the enemy at the front and fear  ilic cowards at , home.���������From the  Jfew YiQTk Tribtuie.  oss    wcrlcers    nave  v���������-������r!r unmolested.

At first the men  w ere given only the straightforward  sewing of children's dresses already  cut out and tacked together, but so  rapid was their progress that they  were soon allowed to do-the. cutting  out as well.

An old story whicb is being V revived nowadays concerns two rival  sausage makers.- They lived on opposite sides of a certain street, and  one day one of them placed over his  shop the legend, "We sell sausages to  the gentry and nobility of the country." The next day, over the way, appeared the. sign, "We sell sausages to  the gentry and nobility of the whole  country." Not to be outdone, the rival put up what he evidently regarded as a final statment, namely,  "We sell sausages to the king." Next  day there appeared over the door of  the first sausage maker the simple  expression of loyalty, "God saw": the  King."
