Geo. Mawson, who took a deer up in  the neighborhood of the Alice mine  last Wednesday accounts for about  the only venison taken in this seetion.  Deer are scarcer than ever, due. possibly, to the rather larger number of  eoyotesthat are in the hills this season.

'.'-nffnTHMCi  IMUULLCRl riRAfltlAL KfilUIUia  m  Great Britain is hard at work, in  spite of her gigantic war operations,  upon the difficult problem of giving  India a greater measure of self-government.  There are 315,000,000 people concerned, more than three times thc  population of the United State?,  nearly forty times over the population  of Canada.  Great feudal lords, under thc suzerainty of .Britain have well established  rights there. The caste system is  dead against the idea of the equality  of men on election day, which our  democracy teaches. Only a small  proportion are Christian, and care  much for what we mean by modern  civilization.  Instead of olden ^ time intcr-tribal  war, which was< incessant; widow-  burning as a religious rite; girl-baby  sacrificing as a recognized thing;  drowning the aged in sacred rivers  ss a filial duty; robbery as a fine  art to be encouraged in the public  welfare, Britain has brought peace,  mercy, justice, quietude to India.  And the Indians arc grateful and  satisfied, as was speedily shown at  the outbreak of war, when such a  prodigal outlay of men, money and  ancient treasure was laid at thc foot  of the empire's throne, as even that  _Nr>..1n_-. -i-     _-������_->,������������������������������-_ ������-������-���������������������     lio/l     ���������_-__-_-.-_-_.*���������������������������     _rlf>__*o Til f-     /".

She  wants her great eastern empire to  enjoy all the blessings modernity has  Drought to western nations.  The Right Honorable Edwin  Samuel Montagu, secretary of state  for India in the British cabinet, has  great plans for India's future. And  for his model state he looks across  seas to our own Dominion.  "Look at Canada," hc says. "Th������a*e  you see the fulfilment of the purposes  of our empire. The fact that the  people in Canada arc subjects of the  King is a source of inspiration to  them, and not a handicap on their  freedom. Their loyalty, and self-  sacrifice in this war prove bej-ond  question that they have been and  arc satisfied with their relationship  to the British empire.  "Wc believe that a similar result  can be achieved in India, and that  in spite of differences in race. Indians and Europeans can and will cooperate with each other in the great  .VOfiC   i*i2.t   _i���������3    OCTOrc   thcilt   in    i-lulS.  We recognize that the difficulties are  enormous, for no person can say reasonably that India is yet ready for  the measure of self-government existing now in Canada.  "In India there are still, unfortunately, nearly 300,000,000 people who  ���������-an neither read nor write.

"So far, indeed,  that they surprised a party of Highlanders in the peaceful occupation of  porridge-making for a section due for  night duty. The porridge-makers  had no time to seize weapons.- Instead thcy seized their precious pot  of porridge and flung it in the face  of the advancing foe. There were  yells of rage as thc scalding porridge fell among the soldiers of the  kaiser. One of the funniest sights  of thc whole war, I am told, was  to see a German officer trying to  look dignified before his men in a  uniform covered with porridge. The  method of repelling the attack was  novel, but effective. It was more  deadly than liquid fire, I fancy, for it  put an end to the attack in that  quarter.  "When we relieved thc Highland  porridge-makers wc found them in a  terrible funk, they didn't mind facing the worst attack the enemy could  make, but they were quaking at the  prospect of explaining to hungry  comrades what had happened to the ; give  porridge.

But this is not the tale of  what befell the two divisions. Itonly  concerns the valor of one private,  and how for his battalion it swung  the balance from possible failure to  sure success. His name was Edwards, and his battalion was the 12th  Middlesex.  The battalion had gone up through  thc straggling fruit trees, and picked  their way across the slashed entanglements into the German  trenches. There the leading waves  formed up, and went forward again  towards the second German line.  Suddenly from in front of them  came the menacing catter of a machine gun and a pitiless hail of bullets that forced them to the earth.  For a few moments they paused under that blasting fire. Then one of  the men rose from his place and ran  along the line, a strange figure with  mud-caked Clothes and face blackened by thc foul smoke of a bursting grenade. As he ran he shouted  at������the top of his voice for bombs.  At last beside a dead man he found  what he sought���������a bucket brimful*of  bombs.  Edwards snatched up the bucket  and ran, nothing else mattered to  him in the world now, but that deadly machine gun in front.

They sent one of the dogs out  to find me. ^H.c finally discovered  mc; and as he was unable to find  my cap, he put his nose in my pocket and pulled out my handkerchief,  which hc took back. A few minutes  later he led his owner to thc place  where I lay.  They told us that this dog saved  one hundred and fifty lives in one  day during the battle of the  Marne.  Science taught us some years ago  that there were wide but definite  pastures in the sea, where the fish  roam in herds and fatten themselves.  Now the economies the war -____-.  forced upon the world have led to  the discovery that there are also  meadows to be mown and harvested  with excellent financial returns for  the farmers of the deep.  Out on the Pacific coast, southot  the Canadian line, the Dig mowing  machines may be encountered frequently; ugiy_. big, grim grey things  they have often been mistaken ior  naval affairs, miniature destroyers,  mine layers, or even for submarine*-..  Alongside, or behind them are the  blades of the machines, cutting away  the tops of the sea herbage jas they  slowly pas6 along, from a hundred  yards or so to about half a mile or  so from the above.  . The kelp grows quickly as all fishermen and shore dwellers know, and  the big meadows may be cut every  three months or so. Small coaster  vessels aud in-shorc fishermen are  not sorry to have the^ troublesome  weeds cut ��������� provided it is kept cut.  The top-cropping thickens and toughens the growth and spreads t he  beds, so that by the time the new top  reaches the surface it is almost impassible for ordinar}*- low-powered  motor, boats.  j.i is iO_r war purposes i_3ain*y *_nc  harvest o������ the ocean is reaped. Great  Britain found out long ago that the  kelp contained valuable materials  which could be obtained from it just  as easily as from minerals, Saxon  potash mines and land grown vegetation, supplies of which were running short under the strain of the  war upon all sorts of explosives.  After the kelp has been cut it is  chopped and transferred to barge*,  dumped into enormous wooden vats,  mixed with water and left to ferment  for ten or fifteen days. By stsbdsg  thc liquid with lime and other reagents and taking away the products of crystallization one by one,  war arsenals are stocked and titanic  explosive forces made ready against  the foe.  The most valuable chemical obtained is acetone. To be sure of having, enough of it one large powder  company spent $5,000,000 for a factory near San Diego, Cal.

British or German Jewellery  ��������� ���������' ���������i -__*��������������������������� ���������  Industry Is One of Great Magnitude  in England  Thc war has played havoc with  English jewellers, for, besides the  lessening of sales, many men in the  jewellery and allied^ industries have  been called to service. As a manufacturing centre, Great Britain has  remarkable advantages in peace  times, due to thc unlimited sources  of supply, and it is necessary to keep  the German made goods., out of Kng-  land. The raw materials requisite to  keep thc industry going, precious  metals and precious stones, arc-  mostly drawn from the overseas Dominions and India, thc latter country  having huge resources and many yet  undeveloped, which in the future will  be a huge source of revenue.  Thc extent of thc industry may be  gathered from thc fact that in Birmingham alone, some 60,000 people  were employed, whilst thc Birmingham assay office had through its  hands, during one return of a prewar year, the stupendous number of  12)4 millions of articles of thc total  weights of nearly 400,000 ounces of  gold and four and a quarter million  ounces of silver.

It was one of the largest  contracts ever awarded in the United  States and carried the condition that  i.n no circumstances was the powder  company to compete against the  British war office for acetone. To  make smokeless powder without acetone would be worse than bricks  without straw.  Thc base of all smokeless powder  is some form of guncotton. -Gun-  cotton by itself is loose in texture,  and for propellant purposes it explodes too quickly. To retard its  action guncotton must be more or  less condensed, which is accomplished by partly dissolving it. Acetone,  which has usually been made by the  destructive distillation of wood, in  the host solvent.  Then there is potash. Ever since  llJ14 we have been hearing about efforts to find potash to replace thc  German product which used to be  sold so cheaply that competition was  stilled.  Thc potash mines of Saxony probably represent dried out deposits of  sea water. So that no one need  wonder that potash exists in kelp.  Even in Colonial days seaweed was  bucnod for lye. Out of the sour vats  on thc Pacific coast, comes us a byproduct a high grade potash invaluable in thc making of; black powder.  Next, acetate of lime, of which the  military power requires all it can get,  since from it can be derived the cellulose acetate.    Thus  the  solution of  cellulose,    or    cotton,  which   is  used  for tightening up lhc wings of acro-  ppinet* ��������� "doping," the workmen call  il���������comes  into   thc   shops   of   aircraft  production boards by thc kelp route.  And then kelp yields medicines for  the wounds and jars of war.   Out of  the    -acidulated    liquor  in   which   thc  seaweed    is    .-.teeped    comes various  acids,    including valeric,  which is used lo quieten the nerves of shell shock  victims.

Here is a hellish, wilful violation of  nature's laws by the first constructors  of Nations, as each Nation has been  constructed with the heart function  located and operated by individual human units outside of its body, and the  Nation's blood is* supplied not only by  independent human units claiming alliance lo its own body, but by independent human units allied to other Nut-  ions.  As we have been subjected to this  mode of construction and operation of  our Nations for thousand of generations, we have become so inbred, saturated and accustomed to this, system  that it requires a terriblo jolt to shake  us from our lethargy and bring us to  ourselves.

Old Noyon  Hun Has Ruined    Historical    Town  JRuthlessly  After having been for months a  storm centre in this summer's hurricane of war, and after many months  of Hun possession, it is doubtful if  much that was fine above Noyon re-  mains un ruined or, at any rate, undamaged. And before the war the  little town, with its population of  about six tho'usand. possessed considerable that was fine, much that  was ancient and historically most interesting. For instance, the Hotel -de  Villa���������the town hall, as we would  call it��������� was a handsome edifice, built  during thc years from 1485 to 1523. It  was commenced before Columbus  crossed the Atlantic, and it was finished twelve years before Jacques  Cartier sailed up the  St. Lawrence.  The Cathedral, too, was a beautiful building in the Transition style of  the twelfth century. It is associated  with thc memory of a man whose  i>fcaching and writings have profoundly influenced thc religious convictions of millions of people.  It was in this okl town ol Noyon/  in Picardvj that- John Calvin was  born on July 10, 1509. His father  was procureur-fiscal of the district  ���������the solicitor for the revenue -department, a law officer of thc crown.  He was also secretary of the diocese.  His three sons were "bred ccclesias-  iscs* and the. reformer himself, while  stili only twelve years of age, was  appointed to a chaplaincy in the  Cathedral  church  of  Noyon."  Noyon is in thc department of Oise,  sixty-seven miles northeast of Paris  by rail.  It was the Noviodunum of Julius  Caesar's time, and in the Middle  Ages a residence of two famous  kings.���������Charlemagne and Hugo Capet.  Cold Feet In Germany  Generally Related to the Length    of  Their Neck*  The foot of a bird shares with ihe  wing the duties of locomotion. Birds  with highly developed wings have  poor feet. The swallow, an aerial  bird, is an example. The chimney-  swift has a tiny foot, but enormously  developed wings, and if placed on a  flat surface is unable to support itself. All- aquatic and terrestrial birds  have excellent developed feet. The  loon is so thoroiighly aquatic that it  cannot walk on land without the support of its breast and wings. The sea  snipe has a foot especially fitted for  swimming, and can be found a few  hundred miles off the Atlantic coast  in flocks of hundreds of thousands,  perfectly at home in the water.  The foot is generally related to.the  length of the neck. The flamingo  wades out into the water, and is able  to duck its head and secure its food  with the aid of its particularly constructed neck. In securing prey the  foot also plays an important part.  The great horned owl and the duck  hawk have-enormous grasping power  in their claw9. In our grouse or  partridge a horney, fringe-like growth  appears on the toes late in the fail,  serving as a sort of snow -shoe during  the winter, by which the bird is enabled to walk on the surface of the  snow. This growth is shed in the  spring.  n&stitnte ecoffiosny  Use only such foods  as contain the greatest amount of nourishment, with the least  possible waste.

The summer has passed its zenith. The chill  autumn days will soon be with lis.  Winter itself is not far off. and Berlin in winter Js a bleak and chilly  city. To wander along Unter den  Linden bootless on a real North German cold -day will be more than an  uncomfortable experience. The open  confession that the fatherland has no*-  leather and no leather substitutes is  proof sufficient of the effective result  of the blockade, and, too, of the. fact  that, unless she can secure overseas  supplies, Germany will be industrially  helpless after the wai  was  a time when   England was      so | --{,e -western world  well shod as today.

P. at  Herschell Island and Fort McPherson, report that white foxes were  plentiful along the coast last winter,  and large numbers of pelts have  been taken by the natives.  In the delta also a good catch of  fur is reported. In the vicinity of  Fort McPherson foxes and martcn  were the principal furs caught in any  quantity.  Competition by American traders  has enhanced the prices of furs.  Caribou haye been plentiful, thus pro-,  viding food for the natives.- Traders from Fort.

Massey    writes in    his  book, "Desert Campaigns": "To make  a trench three feet wide you have to  open some fifteen feet of ground, put  in battens    with    canvas    backs and  anchor them,    and    then    refill    the  spaces behind    with    the    excavated  soil. . . . When the khamscen blew,  as it always, docs at intervals    froin  March to May, a whole    series     of  trenches would be found  completely  filled up in a night and the game of  shoveling had to begin afresh. Sometimes when  the wind was    carrying  with  it  so  much  of  the  desert  that  tlie sun was hidden by      the      dust  clouds, the temperature went up    to  115 and 120 degrees, one's  skin    became hot, lips cracked, and thc daily  scanty    allowance    of water did not  relieve parched throats for an hour."  The Sword is Sheathed  Modern   Devices    Have    Supplanted  Old Weapon  There is a curious kind of irony-in  .the fact that a weapon once so universal as the sword should now  have become hardly more than a metaphor. We speak, and wrrte, of ''victory by ihe sword," or of "a peace  imposed  by  the  sword,"  though   the  sword ie now -nor-, a decorative   ob-      ject lor parade functions than a piece |3|  of tempered steel for" killing purposes. _s  Shrapnel, high explosives, poison gasi g[  and the rest of the too ingenious  modern devilries have left^ the more  heroic weapon to rust in its sheath.  Yet it will probably never be supplanted as a metaphor because^ & is  picturesque, and has a bite in it  which no other word possesses. Certainly poets arc not likely to_substitute anything else    for    it.���������London  -i-*..-..      r-, _.:_.._.  l-*-._iy    V..IIIU111-.IV;.

"What's the game, Mater?" he  asked when he had settled down to  it. "Are you going to burst up the  show and hang Tony before Morgan  is married to Miss Comlyn. or waic  till afterwards? Looking at it from  your point of view it will effect the  church offertories a whoie heap if  you-upset Mr. Morgan's apple cart."  "I should never compound a felony  for the sake of the offertories,'" the  rector's wife rejoined severely. "But  it would be satisfactory to gain; ah  insight into Mr. Morgan's intentions.  if he means to-set thc law in motion after his marriage there would  be no need for me���������for the clergy���������  to move in the matter at all. It would  be an immense relief to me to know  that I was to be absolved from further responsibility."  "Morgan and that professor chap  who's staying with him at thc Court  have been down most nights lately  to see old Mike Hever on the brig,"  he said presently. "I've spotted them ^^A  when I've been mouching around. Ir "  "I could get aboard and hear 'eiii  talk I might pick up something. But  it would be a risky job, and I  should have to ask you for some  spending; money if I took it on. Mike  would wring  my  neck if he   caught  want im* to keep mum for good and  all. 1 won't do it, Mister, I'll go to  St. Braunock's tomorrow and blow  the whole game to Sam Noakes."  "What a vindictive chap you are,  Mike," Tom recognized Jasper Morgan's voice. "If I can forgive Sir  Anthony for the wrong he's done  me why can't you? He cannot have  hit you as hard as he's hit me. Apart  from killing my wife he has robbed  me to the tune of several thousand  pounds.. You can't have such a  grudge, against him as that."  <_TM     ____��������� _ ___. 11* Y T* '       _>  ihats as may oe, was Hevers  st-lien rejoinder. "If you don't  grant me. my way with him I'll take  it, if I have to go to jail myself for  biding quiet so long."  The quavering tones of Professor  Zimbalist next joined in the trio.  "Do you not think, Jasper, that you  might meet our friend by promising  to let him loose on West as soon as  your marriage to Miss Comlyn is an  accomplished fact. You would have  gained your purpose then, and it  would be better thau having trouble  with Mr. Hever."  A. long silence followed the suggestion, and Tom Burbury eo.uld imagine that Morgan and his friend  were engaged in eye-talk over it. In  the^ professor's pacific proposal there  had been a subtle note of something  left unsaid.  "Very well," came Morgan's tardy  as..\nt at last. "I will engage to start,  the police in on the right track - rx,  week after I'm married to . Mavis  Comlyn, which will be a month from  today. Unless, Mike, you'll think  better of it and accept five hundred  pounds to let slevoing dogs lie. It  would save a lot of trouble and be  weii worth the money to me. One  does not want a shindy with a brand  new wife over hanging her old lover."  "Damn your money. Give me Tony  West," thc fisherman's refusal surged through the skylight.

Mrs. Burbury retorted. "Nobody would suspect of you  more *han a boyish freak. All the  same St's a good" idea, and you might  do worse than go along thc shore  after dinner.    There's no moon.  "There's a lot more to it than going along the shore," Tom shook his  head gravely. "I don't accept _ a  Sherlock Holmes commission without an advance fee. A sovereign is  my lowest figure, Mater. You've got  thc coal club money- to draw on if  there's nothing -in the household till."  Two hours later, -after some preliminary manoeuvres which commenced at the gates of Comlyn  Court, Tom stole noiselessly up the  accommodation stairs on to thc deck  of thc stranded wreck. With thc  stealth of a Sioux ou the Avar path  he had shadowed Jasper Morgan and  Professor Zimbalist along the shore  and on to the brig. Ten minutes ago  they had passed up the stairs and  vanished into the bowels of Michael  Hover's strange building.  Once over thc gangway, Tom's  iishlikc stare quickly assimilated the  purview. .The old vessel was flsh-  decked and there were no superstructures iu which Hever could be  K-titcrtaining his visitors. But a faint  glow towards thc stern gave the  trespasser his cue. Creeping aft, he  foiliul ihat thc glow came through  the dulled glass of a small domed  skylight which for ventilation had  been propped open to ihe first notch  ou the ratchet. The aperture of under two inches was too narrow lo  permit a view of the cabin below,  but voices came up clear anil distinct.  "I've been sold, Mister���������that's  what it amounts to," the deep baritone of Michael Mover rolled upwards. "Money isn't everything. I  shouldn't have obliged you by kid-  .iiiiK  the police  thai 1   was iIiiiiik, ami  tery of evidence at the appointed  time, Hever, and I will keep him up  to the mark. I expect you've guessed that my interest in the case isn't  entirely unselfish."  "I don't rightly get it, but I reckon you're after minerals," Hever replied listlessly, his mind evidently-  set on his main object-���������the gratification of his hatred of Sir Anthony.  Tom strained his ears for the professor's answer..  "Fossils, my dear sir," the bland  correction was only just audible.  "Fossils are my particular study, and  von nave scne of ���������**jorT^*r>'1*-- -pf*-**-^*?*;  and considerable value in-yo.ur delightful neighborhood.

"Mr. Zimbalist is  out for giory, but Fm out for dollars. There's a lot of money in the  ���������in these fossils that he finds. You  haven't treated me very kindly but  I'll talk straight to you. As soon as  I am Miss Comlyn's husband I shall  be to all intents and purposes Archibald Comlyn's heir. I don't want to  have the property denuded of a valuable asset by a cheeky schoolboy  who doesn't know the value of the  things. It is impossible for me to  move in the matter till I have got a  rcai voice in it as Comlyn's son-in-  law, but in the meanwhile that.bright  youth may do untold damage." Can't  you knock thc little beast out, Mike,  or, better still, kidnap him and hold  him tight till I have the power to  run a barbed wire fence round tlie  mine."  The throaty chuckle which Tom  was at pains to repress seemed to  have an ecjio in thc fisherman's reply.  "I thought there was somehow  more cash than love to your courting,  Mr. Morgan," hc said. "On the  make, like all thc rest of us, and I  don't blame you. Yes, for a consideration, I'll put Master Thomas off  thc carpet for a spell. For an uncommon long spell, if you make it  worth while. That woman at tlie  rectory has always had her knife inlo  mc, and I shall take pleasure in making her sit up and howl ovcr her  whelp. I'll get busy on him, soon as  you  say the word."

Workmen by the thousands have  joined the colors, and labor is increasingly hard to get. It is  not merely a matter of high prices, but of producing enough  good quality shoes to go around.  These conditions are beyond the control of any man, or  any group of men. They fall on all alike. No one is exempt-  neither the manufacturer^ the dealer, nor the consumer.  X r --  ou must pay more today for shoes of the same quality than  you did a year ago.   Next Spring, prices will be higher still.  ~<'i.tm  i-  These are hard facts.  fTil.  mey win not yield to argument.  They cannot be glossed over. We cannot'change them- much  as we wouid wish to do so.  But you, as a wearer of shoes, can help to relieve them if you  will exercise prudence and good judgment in purchasing. See  that you get real value for your money.   Spend enough to get  ���������' it, but spend nothing for "frills." y  See that the manufacturer's trade-mark is stamped upon the  shoes you buy. High prices are a temptation to reduce the quality  in order to make the price seem low. But no manufacturer will  stamp his trade������mark upon a product which he is ashamed  to acknowledge. Remember this, and look for the trade-mark.  It is your best assurance of reai value for your money.  AMES HOLD EN McC READY  "Shoemakers to the Nation"  tlMHTEO  ST.

And even  trousers so hazardous as these cost  $40 per pair.  In Germany so great has become  the scarcity of metals that windovv  fasteners are now to be expropriated,  and the confiscation of door handles  is to be actively proceeded with so  soon as substitutes can be found. In  Bavaria eyen cash registers have  been requisitioned.  To show the impartiality ' with  which these measures are enforced,  it need only be mentioned that the'  statue of the kaiser, otherwise the  All Highest, at Heidelberg, has been  taken down to be turned into gun  metal.  Producing Oil From Grain Germs  The production of oil in Germany  from grain germs, which has been  in progress for the last nine months,  amounts to 1,321,000 gallons. Ac-  c6rding to a ������������������������ representative of the  German war committee for oils and  fats,, who recently addressed a meeting of mill owners in the district of  Solingen, Prussia, only 40 per cent,  of the German mills have so far  made thc necessary arrangements  for this work. The germ, according  to the speaker, contains from 10 to  12 per cent, of cil. He said further  that grain so treated made better  flour, in that it would not become  musty with age and would bake better when made into bread. The  bread from this flour does not so  easily turn moldy, nor is It in any  way inferior because of the absence  of thc fatty substance.  )  Ckike Without Sugar  Conserve Sugar and Make Delicious  Cakfe  Here is the way to conserve sugar  and make- a delicious cake at the  same time.    Take:  2 cup9 of white corn syrup: 1 quarter cup shortening; 2 eggs; 3 cups of  flour: 1 __--_. tablespoons baking powder; 1 cup of milk; li teaspoon of  salt.  Cream thc shortening, add thc syr-  uo and the eggs and mix well. Add  the milk. Sift the baking powdo;  and thc flour together, add it slowly  to thc mixture and beat. Bake in a  moderate oven as a loaf for layer  cake, or small drop cakes. One quarter of a cup of raisins added to the.  batter gives more flavor, and sweetens.  ==jj  Trap Does Not Harm Fur of Animals  A newly patented trap is built mo  as to prevent injury lo the fur of  au animal caught in it.
