The whole  spirit of the 'meeting evinced the  feeling that the occasion was a  momentous one and the topic?  were of vital interest to the future of B. C, if il was to be saved from provincial bankruptcy,  the result of a prodigal squander  ing of'the natural resource's of  the province by the Conservative Party we'have had- iu power. There was a total absence  of parly spirit cr political rancour; simply a calm and dignified enquiry into a serious posi  tioti, seriously affecting the pres  ent and future generations.  .

The Liberal policy  will be to'insist on an, investigation of all the monios guaranteed  to,the C.N.It. and if found it haa  not been used in construction,-will,  if possible, get a refund of the same.

"And I would rather have you than  any throne, Hugh," she said, giving  him hqr hand.  He b<-,nt over it to Kiss It, and her  face clouded with a momentary expression of disappointment.  "But I must hurry and get ready,"  she said, "I must not vex. papa by  keeping him waiti-g when he has  been so kind." l  ' She ran away, throwing a charming  tmile at him over her shoulder as  Bhe went.

"That was not ,Mr. Hetherington  back so soon, was it?" Hugh asked, to  give him an opening.  "No, sir," answered the man; "Lady  Castleman, sir,"  "Yes, sir," said the man; "her ladyship said'sho wished to see Mr. Hoth-  erington particular, aid w.en I said  he was out she asked if she could  write him a noto in his study.

"I thought it a little strange, sir,"  e:dd the butler, deferentially; "1 havo  never seen hor ladyship before, sir."

Omitting  the  one  distinctly modern    military  arm���������the dying corps���������tlie differences  between the weapons of 2,000" years  ago and the weapons of today are differences in detail only, und excepting  the class of weapons making use oi  gunpowder for .  e propulsion of missiles, it is questionable whether there  has been any marked increase in ef-  ncieiicy either of men or of arms. As  a last resort, when the order comes to  rush the enemy's intrenchments battles are still decided by brute strength  and hand to hand fighting���������sword to  spear, bayonet to bayonet���������just as in  the  days  when  Caesar  wrote,  "The  Belgians  are  the  bravest."  When Caesar    Invaded    Gaul    his  soldiers carried, besides their.curved  oblong  shields  for    protection,    the  famous Roman short swords,    sharp  pointed and two edged, lor close ��������� infighting,   with  javelins  or    throwing  spears as missiles.   These were also  useful in hand to hand conflicts and  ���������w"ere'"the~prototyp8"_of���������tiT0���������modern-  bayonet.   Steel had not yet come into  general use, but these soft iron weapons ..had at least tl.e merit of being  easily  sharpened  on any convenient  utone.   And backing up tho foot sold  lers and. horsemen, just as the artillery does today, was the Roman ar-  tillery, consisting of catapults, which  were  huge  implements  for    hurling  large  rocks  into ,the  ranks    of  the  enomy,  and   the  balllsu,    a  devise  woridiig on the same principle,    for  throwing quantities of arrows. In each  of these tne propulsive force was pro-'  duced by the sudden releasing of a  great beam or tret  trunk which had  been bent by means of   ropes    and  winches to form a huge spring,    A  shower of arrows hurled from a bali-  ista must   uve created us much havoc  in. the .ranks of the oncoming Gauls  a1 the 'bursting of a shrapnel   shell  among," Uio  toot soldiers does today,  while the great stones thrown by the  catapults     wen often'iih lurgo and  hetivy us  the shells of the modem  howitzers.

Women Looking for Spies  Women's    Clubs    In    England Take  Steps Against Germans  Women's clubs" ln England have  been enlisted in the movement to head  off the activities of possible German  spies, and Austrian and German  women have been asked to resign or  discontinue their attendance at many  clubs which formerly welcomed them.  A number of prominent literary  women have urged that English women should be as cautious as English  men about their associates and should  shun all women of German or Austrian sympathies at a -time when  chance remarks might "give valuable  information to the enemy.  Reports from Belgium and Holland  of the activities of women spies who  served as governesses and servants  in Belgian and Dutch families, have  also thown suspicion on German and  Austrian women ln service in various parts of England. The Belgian refugees \vho=arcrin=. England-have---issued a general warning against German women as well as German men,  and their tales of how Belgian cities  were betrayed by German spies in all  walks of life have alarmed the English. , ,  Alarming tales have been printed  in London papers of alleged German  spies in high social and financial  circles, and especially all of the leading men in clubs have asked men of  German or Austrian birth to resign or  refrain from frequenting the club  rooms during ��������� the war. Many supposed spies high in official life voluntarily left   England before the move-  *l-nt .against suspected persons became so acute. Charges were generally made that even Germans who had  become naturalized had often done so  only for business and social reasons  and were at heart Germans as much  as_e_ver. ,.    ������ ��������� . ���������  o Bntain's War Resources  Napoleon blamed his own downfall  largely upon English tenacity * and  English money.' The present war has  already demonstrated what English  money may be expected to accomplish  lnA this crisis, Asked for a loan, the  British investors rush'forward and in  two days hand Lloyd George $3,000,,  000,000.  No nation is ever too poor to fight  a long war.* The American colonies  struggled for eight years without  capital and without oven a bank. '^Tho  Southern Confederacy, with a white  population of under eight million,  continued its struggle for four years  and* put in the field an army equivalent to a million men on a three year  service.  Tho North, with a population of If),-  000,000, maintained an army equal to  1,500,000 for a thro-* year service, and  before the surrender at Appomattox  was spending $3,000,000 every day.  At the close of tho Franco-Prussian  war the Germans levied an appalling  Indemnity of $1,000,000,000 upon the  French, which tho frugal Frank  liquidated lu less than throe years.

Increases Demand For Nitrate of  Soda, Which That Country Exports to All the World ���������  ��������� Strange to say, the one country in  the world which in times of peace  supplies the greatest agent to increases  the production of the earth will new  be called upon, for identically tho  same agen' to supply the means of  destruction, says the Bulletin of tho  Pan;American Union, That country is  the Republic of Chili, and tho product  which has now assumed such tremendous importance is the nitrate of soda  which it supplies to.tho world. Tho  nitrate fields of Chili form a wonderful asset in tho national economy,'5 ���������  The greatest use ln recent years of  Chilian nitrates has been "to make  two blades of grass grow where.but  ono grow before," and in thu capacity  It. has been a blessing to huiniuiit*/.  The use of nitrate" of.soda as a fertilizer, though very general now, has  been known to om* civilization less  than a century. The story goes thnt  au old Scotchman who lived near the  present nitrate fields about 1S1C  spread some soil containin*r white  crystals over part of his garden.  Things planted in this particular spot  grew wonderfully.. Samples of the  ���������oil were sent to Scotland for analysis  and the nature of the substance anil  Its value as a fertilizer was soon established. According - to tradition,  however, centuries before the Spanish conquest the lncas of Peru and  some of the'natives of Bolivia kne.v  of the fertilizing value of the white  crystals, and are supposed to have  known how to produce them from the  crude material.  Today Chili enjoys ^practically a  world monopoly in the production of  nitrate, and its use is constantly  growing. In 1913 the exports reached  the high water mark. Nearly 1,000,-  000 tons were shipped from the var-  inuRi-ports_rof-Uie..country=and__\veiit to  increase the productiveness of" the  soils of many different nations. Incidentally Chili derives a golden harvest  from the product. The revenue derived from the export duty on nitrate,  if equally distributed among the inhabitants of the country, would give  every man, woman and child no less  than $10 annually. This great re eiu,i  is being used to build railroads;' improve harbors, fostor education and to  build up the- nation generally, anil  taking into consideration the number  of its inhabitants, makes Chili one of  Uie richest countries in tne world.  The Chilean nitrate beds are found  in a strip of country about five hundred miles long, at a distance varying  from fifteen to ninety miles from the'  Pacific coast. . The deposits lie in  great beds, or strata, and the product is easily mined. The overlying  strata "are penetrated by small shafts  "o"r~"drilis-on-through-th-e-Tiahir~al-riit-"  rate beds to the underlying bedrock  or' substratum of clay or gravel. At tlie  bottom of the.shafts charges of powder or dynamite are placed, which,  when exploded, break up and scatter  the' surface layers and the nitrate.  The fragments of nitrate are thon  gathered from the debris, and carried  in carts or smal* cars to the, ilocans,  or factories, which convert tho natural  product into the white crystals ., of  nitrate of soda, sack them and then  transport them to the nearest port of  shipment.  Just now, however, the greatest demand for nitrate will be to make powder and other explosives. Nitric acid  Is needed to manufacture nitroglycerine, dynamite, smokeless powder nnd  the various kinds of high explosivon  used in theso modern times. Even in  times of peace the United States uses  for manufacturing explosives throe  timos tho amount of nitrate usod In  the production of fertilizer. In times  of war no estimate can hi mado iih to  the amount, the' world will demand,  and doubtless the price of Chilian nitrate will soar.  *��������� ll'OW OriHIHO -ruil OUtlCTI***  &1UETTCOMPANYUSS  H'      TORONTO ONT.    *-AN���������  1  t  Due to Foppishness  Made  Cinema   Film   Not  Yet  Tm   .loui'linl  De- in b. **'  ...       .iri  tells an anecdote of the \ih"xu of Purls  tluii did not cuiiiu off:  "A Htory Is going the rounds of the  i   .  ,    ...    ,. ,.,   ,i  Idclnr.itloii of wnr un nrdnr hnd been  given to a lon.lin,? moiIon picture con*, i tho nvuiibiK Uio    co'o.iui  corn of Berlin to have    in   rendlneis | this wonderful marksman  Wonderful Marksman  At Sniliy, nun: Lille, a French  druguoii liiiiritHiuaii wuh ul'.liouud al  a swing bridge with two coinrudjB  to lihid fur In ui. ihu colonel simply biiltl to Ium iih Um rcguuuiit ru-  tlrud, "Tlio minor Ik your������," H waa  liii^ui'fiiiU tliat thu enemy hIioiiIiI bo  hold buck without tlio liridgo being  blown ibi, '1 lio niui'lisiiuiii hid behind  the fonen sixty yiink from tho bridge.

In spite of. the fact that  M. Vou Jagow, tne German minister  i. foreign aiiairs,  claimed  to  be  in  ignorance of the contents of this note  jfeys  m  m  i1  yi*  faii-s has made public a Yellow Book  bearing oa the cause of the present  war. The French volume Is much  more complete than the publications  of the nature given out up to the present time by other governments. Tho  French report has 216 pages and comprises no fewer than 160 documents.  It la devoted primarily to a recital  Of tbe negotiations which followed the  delivery of the Austrian note to Servia (July 23, 1914', and which preceded the declaration of war by Germany  on Russia (Aug. 1, 1914), and on  France (Aug. 3, 1914). It Is brought  to a close by the reproduction of the  declaration of the Triple Entente  powers, that Great Britain, .Russia  and Franco would not conclude peace  eeparately.     ,    ,  The French diplomatic documents  ln this book are,divided in chapters  in order to distinguish the preliminaries from the principal phases of the  European crisis. The first chapter is  entitled "preface" (1913) and is devoted to the remoter regions and the  causes of the present conflict. <Aa  extract of the Yellow Book given out  officially in Paris,- reads as follows:  "It was first in the spring of 1913  tliat we noted this colossal and expensive military effort which alone  can explain-tlie desire to impose the  Germanic superiority and hegemony  upon tlie powers of the Triple Entente. When France responded to  this menace by the drafting of the  law of three years service in the army  ,���������thls measure of. defence was denounced in official circle* in Berlin as a  "provocation which should not be  tolerated.'  "April of 1913 a secret and official  German report defined 'the objective  and, the means of national policy' as  follows:  " " 'Convince the people . t the necessity of " an offensive1 war against  ; France; prepare uprisings in Riusia  " and in North America; provide for, in  case of hostilities, the immediate absorption of Belgium and Holland.  "These are the Ideas extolled in this  repcrt.    Such is the programme that  ��������� -.phortly after we saw tne Germans endeavor to put in operation. We declare  , that Emperor William, who up to that  time    had    posed as a champion of  , peace,  admitted  in  the  course  of a  conversation with the ing of the Belgians that he had finally    come     o  . share  the  ideas of his  military ad-  ������������������visors;-���������He���������had���������placed-*t-himsel������-  among the partisans of a war which  he thought would not bo long delayed  and   the "..overpowering    success    of  which seemed to Um certain. Public  opinion   in  its  turn  permitted  itseif  to be won by the passions oi the military party, and came to consider the  y affair of Agadir as a defeat for Germany.   It regarded the existence of a  strong France  as  a  danger to Germany, ana the breaking out of a Eur.  opean war was the only remedy for  all difficulties and all uncertainties.  "Thjse bellicose dispositions consM-  . tuted a permanent   danger for   the  peace of Europe.  ��������� "From a perlisal of ��������� the six other  chapters of the Yellow Boole, which  aro devoted to the diplomatic negotiations carried on in the month f  July, is' to be deducted and s'ipported  by evidence the Impressions that tho  combination between Austria and  Germany had decided upon war and  that on1 four successive occaslf :is thin  , commission endeavored to precipitate  war by violent proceedings, the purpose ,of which was to prevent or,Insure tho failure of all efforts at conciliation, Tho first of theso proceed-  ings was tho Austrian ultimatum to  Servia (July 21), which was the origin  of this conflict. In Bpito of tho fact  that the Bolgrade government offorod  for the prosecution of the assassins of  the Austrian Archduko every facility  compatible with its dignity, tho cnbi-  not of Vienna sunimonod tho govern-  niont at Bolgrado not only to disavow  all complicity with tho crime at Sarajevo, but fiirthormoro to permit foreign functionaries to seek the authors  of this orlmo on Servian torrltory.

He  (which was nevertheless known to the j  we'll be hauled ove** the coals for it.  lt was what you mignt call a night  attack. We had some leisure in our  position along tne Aisne, and tnere  was a little village uear our lines  where we used to go tor a bit of a  lark.  "One    night    coming    back���������there  were about ten of us���������we were sur-  president of tlie Bavarian council),  Germany Immediately and without restriction, united herself with her ally.  The German Ambassador came to' the  Quay D'Orsay (French foreign office  in Paris), and endeavored to carry  through a proposal which ho represented as being peaceful, but which  was in reality threatening. He suggested that the conflict should remain  localized, and that any intervention  oa the part of a third power would  result in Incalculable results.' This  was tantamount to letting it be understood that Austria should havo  every liberty to crush Servia and that  Germany would have recoun-o to arms  to prevent Russia from succoring Ser-  Yia.  ���������Confronted with,this situation, the  first thought of* tho' powers forming  the Triple Entente' was to gain time  to examine the conflict with greater  care,-and if possible to render lt less  acute.    The powers therefore asked  that Vienna extend the period of delay  allowed Servia for her answer. Then  Austria became fearful that she would  be left without a.pretext, of war and  she endeavored to ward off this danger ' by another   expedient.   She declined or avoided the request for an  extension     and  declared insufficient  the Servian answer, which was given  to ..her^ in good.,time. and. which- admitted and accepted her principal demands. Austria thereupon ordered her  minister at Belgrade to leave the Servian capital (July 26) and-diplomatic  relations  with  Servia  were  severed.  "With this development the situation became considerably aggravated.  The  powers  of the  Triple  Entente,  however, still   endeavored   to,  bring  about a settlemen*    In    th,e    mean-  'time M. Von Schoen, the German Ambassador in Paris, came to the Quay  D'Orsay  and  demanded  that France  exert, her influence on    Russia in a  peaceful sense, but refused to exert  similar influence at, Vienna.   England  proposed to avoid a, crisis by submitting the Austro-Serb difficulty to the  official mediation' of the four powers  which   WL.*e   not  directly .interested  therein.   France and Russia accepted  this  proposal to internationalize  the  question, but Germany refused- under  the���������pretext��������� that��������� she-could���������not���������thus  .lumiliate her ally,  and proposed "in  the place of this common action the  opening  of direct  conversations  between  Vienna  and    St.   Petersburg,'  saying the latter wa: ready to consent  to    this    arrangement.    The, conflict  seemed consequently at this time to  be  progressing  toward a  settlement  when for the third time, Austria, by a  fresh provocation, killed    the   hopes  held by all the Entente powers in the  direction'of conciliation.   She declared war on ,Servia  (July 28)  and began at the same time a partial mobilization against   Russia on her fron:-  iers (July 29').  The report then goes on to  show how England tried to avoid a  crisis, through . mediation of ��������� the  Austro-Servian difficulty by the four  powers not directly Interested therein,  France and Russia accepted this proposal, but Germany refused, The  powers of the Triple Entente did not,  howovor, glvo up all hope and Sir  Edward Grey, Brltlch Foreign Secretary, started a now project for four-  sided mediation, In which Russia Joined at the demand of France. Germany  however, evaded this.  Tho French ropcrt shows how tho  Triple Entento in many othor instances, endoavorod to avoid the conflict, Germany balked every effort.  In conclusion tho Fronch report  oays: "Franco, moved by a deep love  of poace, exhausted ovory means of  conciliation at her command. Tho successive violations of tho neutrality of  Luxomborg and of Belgium and tho  Invasion of lior own torrltory .wero  necessary boforo she doclded to draw  tho sword to defond hor vory lifo."

"It was a dare-devil of an Irishman who suggested that we ought to  give the Germans a little surprise,  and we were all with him. Doing our  best to look fierce and create an impression that we had at least a brigade behind us, us flung open the  door without, any ceremony. -Our  first rush was for the passage where  most of the Germans had stacked  their rifles, and from there we were  able to cover tlie largest party in any  one room., ���������  They were so taken aback = that  they made very little resistance. The  only chap who showed any fight at  all was a little fellow, who had good  reason to fear us, for he had escapeu  the day before after being arrested  as a spy. He. whipped out a revolver  and some of his chums drew swords,  but we fired into them ' and ��������� they  threw up their hands, after the little  one had sent - a revolver bullet  through my arm.  ,_; We. fastened .them up securely, collected all the smokes and grub they  had not touched, and marched them  off to camp.

I think they were inclined to let  us down lightly .because of the pris'-  oners, particularly,,the spy chap, but  we had no business to be out of  bounds that .night,' and we'll probably  have some,.mark*" of official displeasure chalked up against us.  ��������� Even if we do, I won't worry, because we had value for our money,  though I don't say if I were in the  same position, and had lime to thinic  it over, I should be inclined'to commit ,the same offence against discipline.

Tii ere is, however, a good deal of  evidence that eminent Germans are  beginning to realize that tlieir country has been very badly served by its  diplomacy. There was Borne plain talk  along theso linos when it became  known in Berlin that overtures for  an Independent peace had been made  first to France and then to Russia,  only to meet rebuff from both directions, This order relativo to diplomatic agents has given rise to more  talk of the same sort at Berlin.- Tliero  will be still moro, and it will bo a  great doal plainer, when it becomes  possible for intelligent Germuns to  spoak their minds concerning the  negotiations that procodod tho war.  If over a nation has been badly  served by officials entrusted with directing its International policies and  controlling its diplomatic agoncies  Germany is that nation.

This "is what  he said in a letter .to Sir James Dun-  lop Smith, who was secretary, to Lord  Minto when the latter was Viceroy  of India, and who conducted the durbar tour of King George and Queen  ���������Mary through the India empire. To  .Mr. Coningsby Dawson, an Anglo-  American newspaperman, he told  two or three interesting stories in  answer to the question, -"Why is India fighting the Germans?" and one  of them showed what sort of man is  Sir Pertab Singh. , Some years ago  a youug English lieutenant hud died  of cholera in his palace. He was the  son of a friend of the Prince's, and  as the body was about to be placed on  the gun carriage Sir Pertab went forward to lift lt.  He was   checked   by a couple   of  British officers, who reminded , him*  that if he wero to touch 'the dead he  would, by his religion, lose his caste,  and perhaps, despite his wealth, never  be  able  to  buy  it    back.    Ignoring  their   protests   he insisted upon raising the body and placing   it on the  gun carriage. ��������� The   crowd gasped in  horror and amazement, and the next  morning when Sir Pertab entered his  hall of justice he found 500 Brahminj  waiting to reduce, him to the rank of  an outcast.   Sir   Pertab   laughed at  them.    'I belong,"    he    said,    "to a  higher caste than   any   of you have  ever dreamed of, and you can't take  it from   me���������you're    welcome to all  the rest.-  I belong to the same caste  as   the   dead son of my friend���������the  caste of a soldier."   Then he turned  away, and it is not related that the  Brahmins proceeded, with tlieir work  of depriving him  of his  caste.  * Sir  Pertab is one of the few princes who  have .been permitted to place themselves at the head of their    troops,  but he is only one of many who, when  the war came, placed all his possessions at the disposal of his emperor.  According to another story told by  Sir James Smith no small share of  the miracle" of loyalty that has been  wrought in India is due to an incident in which King George was the  chief actor in; Calcutta at the time of  the durbar.    A    great  pageant    had  been arranged for.  the emperor and  empress, and after it passed the huge  multitudes of people remained looking  up at the royal stand where the emperor and  empress' were '��������� stationed,  closely' guarded.   The   people seemed  to expect something that had not occurred, and    King George    instantly  realized what it was.   Forbidding tli3  -cscor-t���������to-followr-he-entered-'the-roya!  carriage,     accompanied    by   Queen  Mary, and drove slowly through the  great sea of people. They made way  for the carriage,   and then the ranks  closed again.    It    took an hour and  a half    for    the  carriage    to    pass  through and   for*   all   that   time the  emperor* drove    through    ranks    of  praying and kneeling people.  He had appreciated the fact that a  demonstration of his implicit trust in  his Indian subjects was what they demanded, and that action touched the  hearts of India. Sir James Smith  says that far into the night the great  crowds passed the spot where the  king had stood, and each mini knelt  und sprinkled over his head some of  the, dust that the imperial feet had  touched. News of'the impressive in  cident travelled all' through Indi",  and the trust that the king imposed  in his peoplo to tho alarm and anxiety of those who wero supposed to  know them so much hotter, Is bearing ��������� fruit today, Sir James Smith  said that whllo , tho Indian people  have no great love for England as  England they liavo-lovo for individual  Englishmen and, abovo all for the  ideal free Institutions and fair dealing which Great Britain represents.  Allies must Depend on Russia in Large Measure to  Deliver the  Weighty Attack that will Result in the Final Crushing  i * i  of the Power of Germany  Upon the staying power and fighting  ese war, but since then it has hcea  marvelous.    With the lessons of that  war befoie, them,  and  witn  tbo national energy stimulated by tbo adoption  of a  parliamentary coiistituUtix  and a larger'measure ot local   self-  government, the itussiaus have mpii-  iy increased their output of goods ct  all kinds, raised the staudard of the*  industries, and above all, completely  reorganized their army.

Thic is proof positive of  prosperity.    With  better methods off  cultivation   learnt largely .rom local  government instructors, the peasant*  are getting far moie out of thoir holdings.   In technical quality, as.well as  in actual' quantity, Russian manu&������-  turers have shown notablu progress.  Since    1900 the number of workine*.  employed in mills and factories baa Increased by about three-quarters of *.  million, and*the output by about 4&  per cer_t.   This . growth has been pap-  ticularly noticeable   in   th) iron amfi  steel Industries, which are so lmpa?$-  ant for war purposes.    The fighting:  forces of Russia have at any.-, rate tb������  assurance  of having behind thorn a.  financially sound .nation, fully,capable*  of providing for-its needs while seeding millions of able bodied men into  the field.    In tho army progress baa  been even more pronounced than im-  .ne country at large.   Mobilization ������!"���������<  r-.ngemonts,  conditions    of    servia^  equipment,  methods of training, a'in}  above all.-the system of, selecting an*B  educating office! s, have all been thoroughly  revised  since  the    Japanese  war,-and  in;the  light of  .hat great  struggle.    By ,-a , scheme ,of pension*  ^.CJjxe_wid03ts_ii.nd_depend������:n'VB-oC<3lI  efficiency of'Russia must depend in a  largo measure the final outcome of the  present war.   If Germany is to be t-s  thoroughly  defeated  as    the  future  peace of the world requires, she will  have to be badly beateu on land as  well as at sea.   To give her the coup  do grace-���������supposing,  of course,  sho  does uot submit to the desired terms  before  that  is   actually  delivered���������  the land \yar must= bo   carried    well  within her borders.   France and Great  Britain can doubtless assist materially  In the operations on    German    soil  which,' whatever may happen ln tho  meanwhilo, will, wo all hope and believe, sooner or later take place; but  to Russia wo must look for the weighty attack which will make them conclusive.   Hence tho strength of Russia, and the extent to which she seems  likely to be able to use lt, are quos-l  tions of great moment.   Of her latent  might there is no doubt.   Her nearly  nine million square miles of territory  contain almost inexhaustible natural  resources.    Her  population    of  say,  170,000,000, increasing annually at a  rate of at least 3,000,000, is an enormous reservoir of potential   soldiers.  'Exclusive of her soluier caste of Cossacks,   born     to **the saddle and the  sword, which    furnishes her with a  uniquebody of about 200,000 cavalrymen, she has upwards of one million  young men coming every year to military age.   In the matter of food supplies and of raw material for the necessaries of life and warfare    she is  more self-contained,; than ony   other  great power.  By agriculture and grazing Russia  not only feeds her own vast population  but produces quantities of grain and  butter for export. Her seas and rivers  are plentifully stocked with edible fish  largely in excess of home requirements and she has abundance of fuel  ���������--timber forests covering nearly 1,-  800,000,000 acres, considerable.beds of  coal and exceptionally rich oilfields.  Her mineral wealth,.is ,far beyond her  own needs, including iron���������much of it  in close proximity ,;to coal���������copper,-  lead, platinum, and gold." Great tracts  of the country enjoy a climate at  least as good as Canada/ while not  a little of it is comparable to Southern  Europe in fertility and weather conditions. It is the greatest of ^mistakes  to regard Russia as a bleak, barren,  icebound land. Only a comparatively  small "part of the czar's wide domain's.  can ju'slly~~be so described. That the  people as" a whole have lagged behind  the most progressive nations of Europe in the development of their almost inexhaustiblej resources is true,  but they are both' economically and  from the'military point of view much  better prepared than is often thought  for the strain of a great war. Of recent years Russia has made tremendous forward strides. Her financial and  industrial advance was beginning (o  be vory marked even before the Japan-  who fall on active service, tlie resent  isls of all classes have been .freed  from the fears which- led so veij  many during that -war to evade th������  ���������all t.o tho colors altogether,'or lo b������  spiritless and discchtented whea eia-  bodied.
