 V  Enderby, B. C., June 8, 1916'  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 9; No. 15;   Whole No. 485  Sidelights on Life at the Front as  Told by Some of Our Boys There  The ladies of lhe Enderby Tobacco Fund are in receipt of a number of letters of acknowledgment  from lhe Enderby men in training  .in England, and at the fronl, telling how much Ihey appreciate the  packages of comforts sent from  here some weeks ago. Chaplain C.  Reed writes: ,  ''I am just back from a seven-day  spell in the hospital with a badly  sprained ankle, and found a parcel  from you, for which many thanks.  The boys will surely light for the  cigarettes and cake. II i.s a great  pleasure to receive'anything from  Enderby. Wc had a glorious spell  of line weather, but yesterday and  today have been squally, though nol  cold. My hospitals are full of Canadian soldiers so anything sent to  me will go exactly where it is  needed the most and to Ihe right  people. Again many thanks, and to  all enquiring friends I send my  kindest thoughts."  All' Castle writes: "After three  weeks in lhe trenches I came out  for a few days in the rest camp and  found a parcel from you kind people of Enderby. It is indeed good  -,'of you, and although I cannot thank  you individually I would like you to  take ;lhis Idler as written toy you  personally. Everything was in line  ��������������������������� condition, and the cake is our one  great luxury. We have a splendid  fellow for. chaplain. His name is  Fallis; I believe he came from Penticton; anyway, whatever pari of  the world he came from he is a tine  fellow. The boys just think thc  world, of him. You -know I was  never very keen on church, yet we  all go every opportunity we get lo  hear him. One of his good deeds  ���������������������������was to write eighty letters in one  night* from thc dressing station.  He is always smiling, and has a  cheerful word for us all. He is  some minister, believe me. Ken,  Pat, Jack, Charlie and Ted, are all  well and send regards . I must now  close, with all kinds of good luck  for the bunch of good work you arc  doing."  Driver Fred'A. Willis says: "I  was more lhan pleased lo get the  parcel sent oul lo me. fl is indeed  good of you people to think of us  fellows all these miles away. But  you can be sure that lhe parcels arc  Hnost^apprecialcdr*���������������������������IHs���������������������������a-^general*  red letter day when we gel them,  as everything tasles so good, and  thc cigarettes are splendid, especially when we have been without for several days, as, of course,  vou must understand it i.s impossible lo get things exactly wlien we  want them. I have had nearly two  years of-the war now, and shall be  very pleased when I can get my  feel on Canadian soil again. I had  a   bad   fit "of  the   blues  yesterday. I  lhe most dillicult of duties and lhe  most trying ordeals he wrings out  of it a smile. Telling of a recent  Hying trip over the old home town,  he says:  "1 made alright, but had no  chance to see Aunt Lillian.   Passed  right over at  12,000  feel so  didn't see anyone I knew particularly well."  Another extract: "These new  machines are lovely; so easy lo lly.  and yet they make oyer 100 miles  an hour. They were developed lo  meet the demand for one better  than thc Fokker, and they arc up lo  expectations. I'm jusl tickled foolish that I'm one of Ihe first of three  Canadians lo My Ihem, and to have  one for my very own. I pul. lhe  wind up my gunner for fair yesterday; made ten loops one after  another, and when .we came down  he shot his lunch���������������������������made him seasick./ It's an awfully funny feeling  if you are not used to il." ,  Speaking of his success in dying?  Lieut. Glen says: "1 can't account  for my luck in being attached here  as most of the boys are thc earlier  of. the Curtis class lhat came over  here last July. ,.Haven't been lower  lhan third man on any of the examination or tests so far, and also  have a clean record as far as crashing machines goes. Just can't account for il, because there are' lots  of the boys who have worked just  as hard as I."  Lieul. Glenn says - his brother,  Ken, has joined thc dying corps,  having resigned his commission in  the trenches of France.

London, June C.���������������������������All Britain is  mourning lonight for Kitchener of  Khartoum. He was* a passenger on  lhe* Brilish cruiser Hampshire,  which went down about 8 o'clock  last night lo the wesl of the Orkney  Islands, lhe victim of a German  mine or topedo, and Ihe absence of  any definite slalemenl from the admiralty lhal any were saved has  served to dissipate the scant hope  held lhat Kitchener might have  made.his way to land. Search par-  tics, bolh on land and on sea, have  failed, so far as the general public  knows, lo.find any trace of any survivor, and il is the concensus of  opinion in London tonight lhat  every soul on hoard Ihe ship perished. The text of the admiralty  announcement follows:      ,  "Thc admiralty reports wilh deep  regret  the sinking  of  lhc  cruiser  Hampshire wilh Earl Kitchener and  lhe   members  of  his  stall'  aboard  last night, about 8 o'clock, oil' the  Orkney Islands.   Either a mine or  torpedo from a submarine was .responsible. ...Four boats were seen hy  observers oh shore lo leave the ship.'  Heavy seas wererunning^but patrol vessels immediately proceeded  .lo   the   scene.    Al   lhe  same   lime  parlies  were sent along* thc shore  to search for bodies. -Only one.capsized* boat has been foil nd "to" lime  of, issuance  of  the,.'report.     Thc  whole shore was searched, and it is  greatly   feared   lhal  lhere  is  Utile  hope  that  there  will  bc  any survivors.     No   report   has   been   received   from   Ihe  parlies  searching  the   shore.      The   Hampshire   was  proceeding lo Russia."  ft was staled lhat Earl Kitchener  was en route lo Russia on a special  mission, ll i.s believed it related  lo a Russian offensive lo offset the  pressure at Verdun and the Tren-  lino. England is shocked loo  deeply al this time' to consider a  successor lo Earl Kitchener, but it  is believed David Lloyd George will  succeed him.  The sinking of the Hampshire was  reported to lhc admiralty by Admiral Jellicoc. Accompanying Earl  Kitchener, as his stall",- were Hiigh  James O'Beirnc, former councillor  of Ihe Brilish embassy at Petrograd;  and former minister.at Sofia; O. A."  Fitzgerald, Earl Kitchener's private,  military secretary; Brigadier-General Ellershaw and Sir Frederick  Donaldson.  CANADIANS IN THICK OF IT  Ottawa, June 0.���������������������������Ollicial advices,  received here indicate that Ihe Can-  what was  beginning of-lhc battle re-.  D  Men and Things as Seen Thro' Hank Reklaw's Periscope  Was  thinking  of my dear molhcr  and how much I would like to see  her. Two years of lhis lighting certainly gives a fellow all -funds of  chance to gel blue al limes. But il  seemed as if someone had taken me  bv the hand and given me a good  grip when I received your cheery  word of kindness and gift. With  all kind wishes and many thanks lo  you all, and the best of luck to the  fund for the good work Ihey are  doing."  LIEUT. JAMES GLEN  We had Ihe pleasure of seeing a  snap shot of Lieut. James Glen the  other day. It lold better than words  what the war experience is doing  for the brave boys at the front.  An earnestness was depicted on the  face that only thc highest call 1o  dutv can give, and in thc smile  there radiated a depth of heart that  only discipline and accomplishment can pul there. "Jim" is npw  a full-llcdgcd lieutenant in the Canadian Hying corps. He has command of one of the newest and  swiftest scouting machines now in  service, a machine that carries a  gunner and two machine guns, and  can* make more than 100 miles an  hour. In his letters to his molhcr,  "Jim" does not forget or drop any  of his old-time cheeriness, and in  Boys arc men in the chrysalis, and men are  only boys gone to seed. When we were, lill!*1*  fellows, il* in a school yard scrap we carried away  a black eye, wc were wont to tell our friends nol  lo ponder o'er our oplic in mourning but "just  you sec the olher fellow's." Today men arc Iry-  iirg"lTaTd;if"^'mnlyrtcrIrccp  sorting to thc old school-boy practice wilh regard  to thc recent Norlh Sea naval bailie.   Aflcr reading all thc columns of press agent prattle which  has appeared in  lhc papers  lhc pasl few days,  one column  contradicting  lhc olher, and  each  trying lo make lhc other fellow's eye look lhc  blacker, wc are a I a loss to know just what did  happen in lhc fight oil' the Jutland coast.   One  press agent report says according lo a late admiralty statement there were 32 German ships  pul out of action against 10 of thc British.   Another report raises this total to 40 for lhe Germans and lowers thc British losses a nolch ori  two.   In all lhis twaddle aboul numbers, the real;  big fact aboul the whole naval action is forgotten.'  if mailers lillle whether lhe British losses werej  two agarnsl one of lhe Germans, or Tour against!  one, or one against one, thc thing of importance1  is that Admiral Realty's cruiser squadron  met  and defeated the prime object of thc German high  seas licet, which undoubtedly was lo break oul  inlo the Atlantic and disrupt lhe plan of the allied  lleet blockade against Germany.   The failure of  enemy  severe  returned  damage  appeared on thc scene, the  though not before receiving  battleships.  "Thc battle cruisers Queen Mary  Invincible and Ihe cruisers Defence and Black  were sunk.   The Warrior was disabled and after  lowed for some lime had to bc abandoned by her  11-is also_.knowii-thal  the .destroyers-Tippcrary  Jo port,  rom our  Indefatigable and  Prince  ��������������������������� being  ��������������������������� crew.  i'lor-  lunc, Turbulent, Sparrowhawk and Ardent were lost  and six others are nol yet accounted for. No British  battleships or light cruisers were sunk.  "The enemy's losses were serious. Al least one  battle cruiser was destroyed and one severely damaged. One battleship is reported to have been sunk by  our destroyers. During Ihe night attack, iwo light  cruisers were disabled and probably sunk. The exacl  number of enemy destroyers disposed of during Ihe  action cannol be' ascertained wilh any certainly, but  must have been large."  The-German admiralty report reads: "During an enterprise directed to the northward our high seas lleet  on May 31 encountered Ihe main pari of the English  fighting Heel, which was considered superior to ours.  "During the afternoon, between Skagerak and Horn  Hill', a heavy eiigagemcnl developed, which was successful for lis, and which eonlinued during the whole  night. ' ' " On our side Ihe small cruiser Weis-  baden was sunk by hostile guns during Ihe day engagement and His Majesty's ship Pommern was sent  in lhe holtom during Ihe night by a torpedo. The  fate of lhe Frnuenlob and some of our torpedo boats  which have nol relumed, i.s not known. The remainder  of the high seas lleet returned safely lo Iheir base."  There isn't any argument.for or against prohibition lhat has nol been threshed threadbare the  pasl hundred years. Thc question of curtailing  thc German Heel to do this is ol more importance ,)crSonal privilege as lo whal one shall eat, drink  lo lhc Brilish empire lhan would bc the loss ol  thc lighting ships and men, even if Ihey were  double what they arc known lo be. After reading  lhc twaddle of thc pasl few days il is.refreshing!  to lake up and read again the only statement in j  connection wilh the Jutland battle issued by thc  Brilish admiralty���������������������������thc only branch of the War  Office that is in* a position lo know whal look  place.   Thc slalemenl reads:  "On the afternoon of Wednesday, the 31sl or May.  a naval engagement look place oil' the coast of Jutland.  The British ships on which the brunt of lhc fighting  fell were the battle cruiser licet and some cruisers and  light cruisers, supported by four fast battleships.  "Among these lhe losses were heavy. Thc German  battle Heel, aided by low visibility, avoided a prolonged action with our main forces.   As soon as Ihey  adians are no\v_  at thc  cently   reported   from   the .Yprcs*.  salient,   the  second   line * trenches.,'V  ,  Reported  ollicer-casualties  from'   ")  lhc greal lighting at Lillebekc, Ihcy.V  place where the Canadians,,.I'ouglu.VV.  now    number . something,  in'   the/  neighborhood.of 180, \vUh"'abou'l-30'-.V  killeifor'died of wounds and-'aboul- v;  thc same number .missing.   . ��������������������������� 7y.

Whatever thc outcome of Ihe present fighting may be  you must bc prepared lo hear lhal  the Canadian losses have been very _  heavy.    As compensation  for their  losses, lhe'Canadians have thc satisfaction of knowing that no troops  could   have   shown   finer  gallantry"  lhan   themselves.     Their spirit is  splendid."

THURSDAY,   JUNE 8, 1016  HIGH PRICES FOR HOGS  The other day at Vernon a shipment of hogs  was made lhal brought the owners 10c a pound,  live weight. Mr. Geo. Heggie sold 100 head, the  average weight of which was 240-pounds, and  these 100 hogs netted the owner the nice sum of  $2/100. Hogs have reached an unpreccdcnlcdly  high level, $11.05 per hundredweight being paid  for I'nd and watered hogs on the Toronto market.  The fact thai, even with live hogs at this,figure,  shipments of bacon arc regularly going forward  to England, will serve lo illustrate very clearly  the demand for lhal product on lhc Brilish  market. Without doubt, Canada stands in a  belter position today lo develop a permanent  'bacon trade with Great Britain lhan has ever  been the ease before. To do this, however, there  musl be volume of supply. There is very good  reason to believe that, although prices cannol be  expected lo remain at thc present high level, the  demand for bacon, in thc face of the supply that  can bc obtained, will bc such as to hold the  market in a very firm condition, bolh during the  war ancl for a considerable period following.  Great   Britain's   imports   of   bacon    in   1915  amounted to ������������������25,-111,'160.   From Canada she ob-  "laiiiV(n^ryVe*C'32^  bacon has'been selling al an advance of from 10  to 12s. per cwt. above1" American and al nol more  lhan 12s. uridur lhe nominal quotation for Danish  illustrates very clearly to what extent Canada  could increase ner export trade had she sullicienl  quantity of hogs lo make, this possible. The  English" merchant and lhe Brilish. consumer will  buy Canadian bacon loday, quality being equal,  -in-j)ivlrixMict'-l()--llud---l'lH)in--anyVcx>uiilr-y--Jn-4ha  world, wilh lhe possible exception of Ireland. Nol  only so, bul an enormous market exists for hams,  frozen pork and pork cuts of various descriptions. This market is as remunerative as lhe  bacon trade, although it i.s not likely lo continue  to prove as constant.  In the vicinity ol" Vernon a large acreage has  been planted lo alfalfa, and on Ihesc acres thousands of hogs are reared and faUciied. Up to  wilhin llie past year these hogs were allowed lo  run at will over lhe alfalfa fields, bul lhis season  lhe owners have adopted lhe California practice  of fencing lhe fields off in small quarters for lhe  pigs of various sizes and stages of development,  and when Ihe feed is cut down in one fenced-oll'  portion a gate is opened ancl Ihey are allowed  inlo lhe adjoining quarters, in this way the hogs  do nol ruii over the field and destroy what Ihey  do nol eat. and, heing kept in closer quarters,  il requires less lo keep them in condition and  finish Ihem for market. This syslcm has proved  eminently more productive of resales lhan lhe  old open-field style ol" feeding.  There are alfalfa fields iii the vicinity of Enderby which, if turned lo similar use, would produce" resuls equally as remunerative to lhe owners and the district. If, instead of having lo cut  the alfalfa,'and cure it and bale il and sell il as  hay, il were \\>d lo hogs, sheep and others stock,  and these were walked to market, the returns  would be increased a hunderd fold.  Let us-stop thinking that prosperity in this district will come only when the war ceases. The  war���������������������������the real war, for lhc Allies���������������������������has only begun. II'may not cease for months; and even  years. Bul whether il be months or ycars, lhe  cessation of hostilities will nol bring a rclurn of  prosperity lo this district unless we produce more  of whal "lhe world needs. Enderby dislrict is  capable of producing farm produce valued in  thousands where today il is producing farm produce valued in hundreds. We arc nol producing  a lenlh of what the district is'capable of. There  is room for thousands of Ions of farm produce  to be produced where today we arc producing  ten tons. And if we had thc produce we soon  would find the way lo the market which now exists and will always exist. But this market cannol  he supplied wilh produce by lhc basketful. We  must have it by lhc carload. If wc do not have  this amouni lhe market is for lhe other fellow,  and we shall have to cxisTon supplying an over-  supplied small community market that, at best,  is only a markcl in name. And, whether thc war  ceases or continues, the conditions now existing,  and which have existed for years, will not materially change until the district produces more  nearly lo ils capacity.  Just now thc movement is in the line of live  slock���������������������������such movement as is noticeable.   And this  is in the right direction.   It could nol bc belter.  But there is room  for more of it.    There was  never a  period when  Canadians generally, and  of this district in particular, were more earnestly  summoned  to do  their ulmosl in   this respect.  Never was there a period when so much depended on their clforls.    In a comparatively short  time,   reckoned by ycars,   probably  before   lhe  callle begotten this year conic to early maturity,  there is going to bc a universal demand for live  stock of every description, but especially for callle.   Thc nations at present al war will be very  tired of eating canned and salted meat and will  demand fresh'bee F, and, as for dairy callle, lhere  is even now a scarcity of milk in  this dislrict,  combined with that of Armstrong, lo supply even  thc small creamery operated by  the Northern  Okanagan Creamery Association.    One demand  is for a.creamery lo bc established al Enderby;  another is for a'ehcese factory.    Both of these  are commendable moves in lhc right direction.  Bul what would wc do with either without milk  sullicienl to operate upon?    Lcl us begin at the  right end.   Live stock breeding is essential.   We  must have thc dairy cattle on our meadow lands  and the beef breeds on thc ranges.  Live stock breeding in this district, taken in  conjunction wilh the almost unlimited possibilities in olher directions, wisely prosecuted and  carried on thriftily, will mean untold prosperity  for lhc district. Il means "money .lo the farmer  ancl benciil to the soil. And, "-while thc war lasts,  il means help to, Britain and her allies. In short,  it means profit all round.  Intemperance is nol in living as one wishes lo  live, but in demanding that others shall live as  one wishes they should live.  TRAITOR TODAY, MARTYR TOMORROW  II is nol much wonder thai Premier Asquith a I  once pul a stop to thc executions of rebels as soon  as he arrived on Irish soil, on his recent visit lo  Dublin from England. There were some brave  men and women in lhal Irish revolt, misled no  doubl, bul none the less true lo the cause they  held mosl dear.

Others more recently have  planted large acreage in alfalfa, and have endeavored to make a success ol" this selling it as  hay. Each year has seen more and more hay  produced in lhe district, and wilh the increase the  price has gone dowii and the market become less  ready to receive anything but the best quality.  The result has been lhat the hay men*-have., been  getting thc worst of it. Gradually the hay farmers  have turned their attention to stock. Little by  little the change is coming. More and more ol"  them arc raising hogs, sheep and dairy callle.  Only here and there may bc found one with a  range sufficiently large and otherwise suitable for  thc beef cattle industry. In the immediate vicinity of Enderby there arc no ranges which may  be said to be adapted to cattle feeding in large  herds. Therefore our farmers arc going more  into thc raising "of hogs and sheep and dairying.  This will mean more industry, and eventually  in ore money and, besides, a better "developed district. An example: Last year Napoleon Simard  put four ewes on his Mabel Lake Valley farm.  This season he has the start of a drove of sheep.  He is planning to increase his flock with all possible speed. Others are doing likewise, and wc  may look for a splendid slart in. this direction being made by the district this year.  There could not be a belter outlook. Lamb  and mutton are dear all over the world. Scotch  mutton is now selling on the Smithficld, (Eng.)  market at 22c per pound, and English mutton at  21c. , Both Australian and New Zealand frozen  lamb' on the same market,are selling at 17V2C.  Yearling lambs in Canada have reached the record price of $14 per c'wt., while in the United  States they have been fetching as high as $11.80..  By way. of comparison, these prices considerably  exceed thc advance in values for other live stock,  but*no appreciable, reduction need bc expected  except through a rapid and general expansion in  production.  Thc wool situation needs little comment. While  it is probably true that lhc mills of Canada liave  at the present moment sufficient stocks of Canadian-grown *\yobl to meel their requirements for  lhe current months,* such is only a temporary  condition and is not similarly the fact as regards  their requirements for wools not > grown in, Canada. Thc position of the world's wool market is  very firm indeed. To quote from the report of  lhe wool sales held in London on the 11th April:  "Competition was. thoroughly strong and well  distributed. The demand for cross breeds has  been -lively.". There is ho indication from any  quarter that the market for wool will be overstocked or that prices will recede. The contrary,  rather, is the! case. Russia and France are purchasing heavily in Great Britain, while the  Uniled States and Canada are not easily able to  obtain their'"requirements. Fanners, unquestionably, are- in a very strong position as regards  the sale of their wool lhis year.  The present prices can have only, one result.  Already renewed interest is being evidenced by  farmers ,who have iiot kept sheep for ycars. Ram  sales were particularly good lasl fall. More sheep  arc .being bred in many provinces, and it is predicted that lhis year will show a further extension of the business. No farm animal can be  made more profitable at the present lime to its  owner. Thc keeping of sheep for lhc sake of the  wool alone may become an economic necessity.  With grade lambs selling on lhe open market for  more than pure bredsbrought two years^ago,  rcvival^of^tlic^hcep hlcriisfry^in^Cantniltoiiay  lost, against 16 for the British, but this statement  has proved lo bc unreliable by subsequent details  given out.  According lo thc Brilish version, lhe Germans  had several advantages in lhc fighting. They  outnumbered the Brilish, and were hidden in lhc  shadow of the coastline, while lhc Brilish ships  stood off thc coast and afforded excellent targets  for" the German gunners. The German version  r-iaims lhat whatever advantage they secured in  the engagement was due to two principal fads:  first, that the German new. 28-ccnlimetrc guns  outclassed lhc English -'10-ecnlimelre guns in a  running fight, and secondly, thai German submarines in a Hacking lhc larger ships were of  greal assistance.  The latest reports from thc British Heel and  from survivors, cause lhe Brilish public to believe lhc engagement was not so near a defeat as  at first reported,- says a "London dispatch, Thc  Brilish losses, with all lhe craft accounted for,  were three battleships, three cruisers and eight  destroyers. Thc German losses arc believed to  have been about lhc same number of ships, although of a much less tonnage. Brilish naval experts maintain that Greal Britain continues to  hold the supreme command of the sea by a safe  margin, and that her enormous navy could better all'ord lhc losses it suffered lhan could lhe  smaller German establishment.  i ROYftLi  YEAST  MAKES PERFECT BREAD  '  Wisdom lies in thinking less about your neighbor's business and more about your own.  HINTS ON POULTRY KEEPING  SHORT  OF  FOOD  A missionary writes from the  Fiji Islands as follows: "Our small  force of brethren seem absolutely  unable to cope wilh the distress  which prevails in this dark and benighted land; many of the natives  are starving for food. Please send  a few more missionaries."  Conclusive  Evidence  Two men holly discussing the  merits of a book. Finally one of  them, himself an author, said to the  other: "No, John, you can't appreciate ,it. You never wrote a book  yourself." "No,'.' retorted John,  "and I never laid an egg, but I'm a  better judge of an omelet than any  hen in the province."  Are your  Butter Wraps  running low?  Better order some now  confidently be anticipated.  It should bc remembered that man himself  manufactured thc phrase thai "man is lhc noblest  work of God."  BIG FIGHT IN THE NORTH SEA  An Old Country poultry expert advises thai  wilh the advance of spring and thc advent of  warm weather, complaints arc sure to be numerous of thc infestation of both old and young  birds, especially the latter, .which arc often  troubled with head lice or ticks. Such insect vermin quickly make their appearance, even on  newly-hatched chickens (when brooded by natural methods): in fact, they may be seen with thc  naked eye, the first day, on thc top of the young  fledglings' heads, and if some remedy is not applied quickly the lice will transfer their position  from the top of thc head to the neck, and suck the  life-blood of thc chicken. There arc several remedies, such as anointing1-Ihe head with a little  sweet oil, but (providing care is used) white precipitate is../advised. The-heads.;and necks-.of  young chicks should.be early dressed Very sparingly, and the treatment continued7 on alternate  days.. White] precipitate-; (obtainable; froiriyany  chemist)' being a strong poison, the greatest care  should be used when applying it. - The presence  of ticks on chicken is responsible for much mortality, and the owner is often at a loss to account  for. the young birds so quickly dying off.  When chickens arc hatched iri incubators they  arc seldom affected with lice, which, it should be  stated, is usually transfercd from the broody hen,  who is too often infested during her 21 days'  period of incubationV All broodies should be  well 'dusted wilh fresh inseel powder���������������������������pyre thrum  is best���������������������������down to thc skin a day or two before be- j  ing placed on the eggs, and once or twice during  setting. Hens selected for selling may also have  a little precipitate ointment rubbed in under  the vent, head, and sides, which will not only prevent them being tortured by parasites whilst setting, but will minimize the risk of lhc brood'being ini'cstcti.  All poultry-keepers should look well lo lhc dust  box or bath, and sec it is kept filled, daily, with  dry sand, rp.ad dust, andjinie, and.a sprinjding of  insect powder.   The provision of such dust baths  ; In the attacks on the British Isles  from sea and air during thc war  2,160 persons have been killed or  wounded, according to figures presented in the House of"* Commons.  The number of deaths is placed at.  550.  ��������������������������� ���������������������������' * ������������������*-(.

Even then it would only be valuable  a few nights each month, whereas a  Want Ad in this paper-while more  limited in its scope will cover this  particular locality every day in the  year.  A naval engagement of thc first 'magnitude was  fought off lhe Jutland coast, in the North Sea on  May 31st between the German licet and the  Brilish. The results of the engagement were  serious to bolh llccts. The'details as to thc losses  on either side have not been published with any  degree of posilivencss, therefore it is not possible  at this time to say how the British losses compare wilh those of llie Germans, if, indeed, this  comparison is necessary, or would mean anything, one way or the other. Thc British assert  that they had only Iwo divisions engaged, and  lhat all units of Ihesc were not able to participate  in'the fighting, and that the German licet retired  when the British battleships appeared. On the  other hand, thc German ollicial statement mam-  tains that the entire British North Sea lleet was  engaged.  According to lhc official statement of thc engagement the British losses were some 5,000 men,  including the ollicers and crews on the Invincible,  Queen Mary, Indefatigable, Defence and Black  Prince, all of which went down fighting. In addition to these ships of thc first and second class,  the British lost the Warrior, the crew of which  were saved, and eight or ten destroyers; in all 15  or 16 fighting'machines. The losses to the Germans have been more or less speculatively given,  but they are'said to include one drcadnaught ol  thc Kaiser class, three battle cruisers, one submarine and a number of destroyers. The German admiralty statement claims only four ships.  is thc natural and only sure remedy against lice  and miles, and should never bc omitted from lhc  poultry house, while it is of great importance for  them to be kept quite dry, otherwise they arc useless. All nest-boxes used for selling hens should  be painted bolh inside and oul wilh limewash  and petroleum. An excellent lloor for the coop  to prevent insect troubles is made by placing a  piece of ordinary tarred felting on the ground,-  which also has lhc advantage of preventing damp  arising. All nesls and ncsl-boxcs should bc made  movable, cleaned oul as oflen as possible, and  dressed with hot lime, lo make Ihem vermin-  proof.  If you suffer, thank God!    It is proof you are  alive!  CHALLENGES LIQUOR ACT  llie Hudson's Bay Company has challenged the  operation of the Manitoba Liquor Acl. The company claims the right to trade without interference by their right obtained from the Imperial  Government in "the deed of surrender of 1870.  To lest the Manitoba law-r-nnd, of course, if the  charter enables it to evade lhc law in Manitoba,  it will enable it to evade thc temperance acl in  other provinces���������������������������the company refused to close  its retail store in Winnipeg, and displayed  ils liquor contrary to the provisions of the act.  The Manitoba government accepted the challenge  and thc attorney-general's department ordered  lhc confiscation of lhc retail stock, representing  nearly $1,000. Thc company will now lake action against the Government in lhe civil courts  for interfering wilh ils righls, and no mailer  which way the decision goes, il will undoubtedly  be carried to lhc Privy Council.

Hell isn't in it with the land  That lies along Ihe Rhine,  I'm old and out of date,  '" And therefore I resign.

I hate to leave the Old Home,  The spot I love so well,  But I feel lhat I'm not up to dale,  in the art of running hell."
