In this position, where he   remained for another two years, until he  received his discharge last August, his  energetic and faithful performance of  duty caused his   rapid   promotion   to  the rank of Regimental   Quartermaster Sergeant.

In meeting the  problem of the shortage of shipping  it was no less necessary that all the  . vessels at the allies' command should  render the fullest possible service  than that the ship yards should speed  up thc rate of production, .before thc  war it would never have seemed feasible that the entire sea traffic of this  country should be organized as a single system and operated on-schedule  time.  Today tlie United States shipping  board has under its surveillance the  ..-ovements of one-fourth of the merchant ships of the world. Day by  day their locations, their arrivals and  their sailings are charted^ and .the  time spent in port and in transit.  With the regularity, of railroad trains  "reat car^-o sliit>s are loaded with  supplies and despatched to return in'J  a given number of days.  It would be disheartening to the  German people to know, if they were  allowed to receive the information,  that every six minutes a merchant  vessel arrives at a*nd another leaves  an American port, and that from  North Atlantic seaports one departs  for Europe every forty minutes. This  does siot include -*rc3������cls in thc ser=-  vice, of'the army or navy. Jt does  not take into account'the transportation abroad of 1,450,000 American  troops, over 800,000 of them in thc  last three months alone."  To' all of these ships" are allotted  cargoes of food, raw materials or  munitions, according to the government requirements. It is all part of  Jhe business*-*-" of carrying on the war  on prearranged plans. From month  to month it is known with reasonable  precision how much 'shipping .will be  available at various ports and. what  supplies and munitions will be moved  overseas. The freedom of the seas  belongs to the allies and America,  and under the protection of their  navies they move their ships at will  wherever thev .'need.

In China, where everything is  done backwards according to our way  of thinking, they begin a meal with  dessert. After the sweets have taken  the edge off their appetites they can  eat what meats or vegetables they  need and are satisfied.  The suggestion that we adopt the  Chinese custom was made in the  course of a sermon on food conservation preached recently. The preacher's text was "and in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth in  handfuls." After calling attention to  the success of Joseph as the first  food controller in written history, the  preacher said: "I would like to make  a somewhat startling suggestion to  the food administration and to the  public generally. It is that we should  adopt the Chinese custom of eating  sweets and desserts first at our  meals.  "I am persuaded that the Chinese  custom of serving sweets at the beginning was adopted centuries ago  as a food conservation measure, for  they have hundreds of millions of  people to feed and great famines are  - Been Noted  During the past two years a marked revival in the building trade iu the  prairie-cities of Canada has been noted.

Though not quite  so busy as Regina, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, is also enjoying brisk  building activity, the value of the  permits issued during the first seven  months of this year being more than  fifty per-cent, greater than the total  of last year.

For the coming year thc  lords are putting on an extra item  of $9,000 for six reporters, as they  are now issuing their debates daily,  like thc house of commons.

Nearly all the cities���������Winnipeg, Rcgina, Saskatoon, Calgary and others  ���������report very large crops of potatoes,  in addition to all kinds of vegetables.  Winnipeg's potato harvest, it is estimated, will run to about 100,001.) bushels. Saskatoon has about 20,000  bushels in sight. No estimates are  available from other cities, but reports-indicate that their crops will be  equally large.  The yields will be invariably larger  than last year, and the increase is due  rather to this than to any increase in  acreage. In the city of Winnipeg  t-ouu; 21,320 .gill-dens, having an aggregate acreage, of *)2() acres, which have  been cultivated. About two-thirds of  this area was sown to potatoes.

Middleton as provincial horticulturist was  announced: and the  ������_>  party press has never hinted even  that this popular official was asked  in assy way to retire, and seeing,  also, that no effort has been made  to name a successor, agriculturists  are beginng to wow der if the sosne-  ijiGuihs-c-gG suggested reorganization of the agricultural department  is about to eventuate.  In connection with the farming  Those who are holding apples for  sale later on the season in anticipation  of a  net gain in price of at  least 23 cents a box, wiii hear with  some satisfaction that the Okanagan United Growers are expecting  the 3____sting embargo against fruit  going into England  to  be lifted  shortly, and have given an option  on twenty carloads in anticipation  of the British market being opened.  ]_*To statement* is forthcoming as to  the selling price, but it would not  seem that it will be an extra fancy  one  in view of the  fact thdft the  freight charges alone between the  Okanagan and Britain will run to  $2.60   a   box.    By  the   time   the  usual lot of middlemen's profits are  added even   twenty cars of" apples  would go  some ways toward supplying  the  Old  Country  demand  with after-war conditions prevailing in the industrial centres.   With  a fleet of  troop  transport  vessels  plying between' the two countries it  would   seem    such    au    excessive  freight rate would be modified considerably���������and that very shortly.

His ultimate conclusion was that  hc fell under neither of those classifications, and that the reference- was  to somebody else. He promised  himself a fairly lively time iili he  went back to school again and of  one thing hc was sure. Only a garbled account of the night's doings  should   reach  thc   Mater.  CHAPTER XI.  The News From  Comlyn  Once again the pale dawnlight  clamored for admission at the veiled windows of Number Nineteen,  _Browi_# Street, Mayfair; and once  again it only succeeded in invading  thc stale splendors of thc gambling  room through a chink here and a  crevice there. God's sun was repulsed by the electric glare which  shone on the green table through a  haste of cigarette smoke.  I.aura Gaspard. her alluring charm  exploited by her beautiful gown, was  not playing, but sat on a lounge  talking to Clayton Kcnyon. Tho  brilliant advocate who spent laborious days iu courts of law ami ilung  away his fees at baccarat aiu* chumin  de for, looked bored and sleepy.  What alertness remained to Mm was  for tli** gambling table, from which  for some reason of his own he had  retired comparatively carlv iu the  night's play.  Miss Gaspard'.; bold eyes, in spite  of an obvious desire to impress and  fascinate her companion, aho kept  straying to the game over which her  father presided. Louis Gaspard almost invariably look the bank when  baccarat was thc order of the night.  Thc girl, for quite a long while, had  been looking puzzled, and* now a  shade of anxiety crept into the  glances  she threw  at  the  table.  "The bank is having a rotten time,"  she drawled, frankly abandoning her  attempts" at coqueirj\ "My father  has been paying out like shelling peas  for the last half hour���������mostly to  your friend, Sir Anthony West: He  is a nice boy, Mr. Kenyon, and. if  wc are to go broke it may as well  be io him as anyone else."  "I imagine that the bank caii afford to lose���������for a change," said the  barrister drily. "It is about time  West struck his luck. Hc has been  in funds for the last mouth, but he  has left most of it in this room. The  fortune of war, of course, but he is  so infernally unhappy over it.���������That  isn't like him. He is the gayest of  losers as* a rule."  "You are awfully devoted to him,  Mr. Kenyon?" Laura brought her  gaze back from her father's nervous,  deftly-dealing hands to Clayton Keu-  yon's tired, clean-shaven face.  "He is my friend," was the simple  reply, spoken as if it contained sufficient explanation.  The pensive silence into which  Laura Gaspard fell was shortly aft-  cfvvar.is oi'OKCii oy a general movement at the  gaming  table.  Play was   ..   r -,,.    . ���������������, _.    ..: .... ..

Smart ladies were  babbling vehemently to perfect  strangers; men who prided themselves on winning pr losing with perfect expressionless faces were cackling and grinning like schoolboys over the wonderful run of luck vouchsafed to one-of their number. And  from the throng as it drifted towards  the door emerged Sir Anthony West,  flushed with victory and scarcely  noticing ihe congratulations showered upon him. Glancing round, his  gaze lit on Kcnyon- and .Laura, and  he came ovcr to them, walking a  trifle unsteadily.  Thc young Cornish baronet had  deteriorated sadly in thc month that  was past. His eyes were bloodshot,  and his clothes hung loosely on him,  as if he had lost flesh. Thc tone in  which hc addressed his friend was  husky, and he used vulgar slang formerly unknown in his vocabulary.  "Chccoh, old Clayton!" he cried.  "The devil's luck has fairly . turned  tonight. Knocked 'em in thc Old  Kent Road and lifted close on three  thousand of thc best. Look at Gaspard tearing his hair and counting  what's left of his dibs. Got thc proper hump, hc has. Well, thc Lord  knows it was my turn to be ton  dog."  The room had cleared now, only  thc nominal proprietor remaining at  the table, toting up'figures on a slip  of paper and sorting an attenuated  wad of bank notes. Ilis demeanor  was certainly dejected.  Laura flung an indignant glance at  the speaker, and blended with the indignation there was a shade of perplexity. "You needn't be rude because you have been winning," she  said. "It is not like you, Sir Anthony, to behave as if you were a shop  boy who had won five shillings in  thc silver ring at Kcmpton.

The rumor  most generally credited at Yekaterinburg- was that the body had been  taken to the deepest pit in a coal  mine andthere_ destroyed. That is  enough. Nicholas will take Iiis place  with Louis XVII, Nero, Marshal  Ney, and ail the other historic characters who never died. For the next  forty years at least lie will be seen  one, day in Siam, thc next in South  Africa and for half a century or  more after that old men will confide  on their deathbeds the fact that the  schoolmaster  or  tin*-   ..-.^rr-.-->r.i.   ���������-.,-,,.,._  w    ������ *���������"**���������*     *- **��������� ***- C5 * *���������**i,'*���������*     *"-���������������������/v-* ~  aior or tne farmhand who died in  their' towns some vears before was  the cx-czar. "The late Dauphin," as  Huckleberry Finn's King described  him, welcomes Nicholas to a journey  as lengthy as that of the' Wandering  Jew.  The version of Nicholas' death  which the Czecho-Slovaks sent to  Ambassador Francis i.s very different  from the Bolsheviki version, which  represented him as collapsing- in the  face of a firing squad. This new version represents that the Red Guards  refused to kill the cx-c_.ar. that a Lettish firing party was summoned and  that it in turn refused to fire, and  that thereupon the Soviet con.mr.tK_-  er, a sailor, "drew his own revolver'  and shot Nicholas dead." If this is  true tlie Bolshevist account was invented to give some appearance of  regularity -to a plain assassination.  The officer who made the report to  thc American ambassador, however,  merely gave the new version as the  best account hc could get. Evidently  Yekaterinburg knows little about it;  evidently, too, the actors in the crime  will from_ time to time issue various  and  conflicting memoirs  telling irre-  rxrx.x r.iir.lxi r\     _.--...._ ....    1       ,l_ . ,    1  -.v^-i<_xjc-u_c o-unc_>, aiiu ilie woriu may  never learn how, jn truth, the last  czar died.

Some of the younger men,  even in .the tropics, were in the habit of appearing in uniform with  swords clanking. The native soldiers-and police alike, are impressed  by shining buttons and uniforms, and  as a result think nothing of the civilian in white ducks. How different  from the English colonics, where  every white n_.Cn. is a sahib, and  where officers are always in mufti  when not on duty.
