Pt  They realize that so far Brilish military operations  have been a terrible failure, but they also lealize that  the British have actually done far more than they  promised and arc trying lo do yet more."  "The Brilish temper is different from that of the  French. . . . If the average Frenchman, if every  Frenchman, is fighting for the restoration of his nation's territory, already knowing that her prestige is  forever assured, the average Englishman is fighting"*to  regain that national glory which has been so sadly  dimmed in all the disasters from'Mons to Kut. He is,  too, fighting with a real confidence, only partially  weakened bv .his lack of faith in his present rulers,  that the army has already turned the point and is  coming into shape, that the country is at last alive to  the real situation, that thc worst is over, or almost  over." ���������������������������  Turning to the question of the possibility ol an  Allied offensive this summer, Mr. Simonds says:  "I believe that there will he an Allied drive, that it  will be made simultaneously on till fronts, and  Wanted lo Sec the Train Wrecked     ,  An exchange tells about Jones,  mad on thc pictures.

The bishop held that the sale of alcoholic liquor  for long centuries had been a perfectly legal business in itself, contrary to lhe laws of neither God  nor man. He took the view that use of alcohol  was not inherently wrong, bul prohibition had  become necessary because the country.was not  Christian, ancl people lacked self-control. But  it was not just or right, he said, lo lake away a  num's means of living and give him no compensation.  Nova Scotia has again returned a Liberal Government.

FRESH  EJJSlH  EVERY   THURSDAY  GEO. rTsHARPE  WHOLESALE - RETAIL BUTCHER  Too long have the people of our land permitted  the clergy to. do their thinking for them. Too long  have we accepted as a pious thought the sacred  theme of Christ ancl His teaching, wearing it as  we put on and off the garments we wear. The  thing has become preposterous. Church-going  and psalm-singing has had little of God in it for  many years. It has been indulged in because of  the "social position" achieved, or believed to bc  achieved, through it. Business, too, has been  benefitted bv it. If the priests of old turned thc  . sacred temple into a den of thieves, what must we  say of thc church of today? Not a den of thieves,  bul a social prestige development club.  Wc hear it said from lime to time, that the  spirit of the Christ has gone from it. Ancl for  this thc priests arc blamed. But arc they any  more responsible than the average layman? Thc  pastor of any church cannot long hold the job if  he is much belter than the members of his congregation. Hc must confine himself to the  spirit of his people. If they arc narrow of  vision and hard of heart, he must bc. If they use  the church as a step in the social climb, hc must  do likewise. Thus would naturally follow the  condition of socialized ancl monetized church-  anity which wc have thrust upon us today in thc  name of Christ.  But, if the pulpit has lost its power, ancl the  great mass of churchgoers arc blind followers of  thc blind, there arc here and there to bc found  laymen who have citing fast to the pearl of great  price���������������������������wisdom.���������������������������and arc thinking of life's realities and speaking of themes, unpopular though  they be, which in the end must count. Thc other  day wc heard a layman discoursing upon the  tficmcs which are confronting us as a nation, and  in thc course of his remarks he said:  "We arc living in momentous limes. .People the  world over are saying, 'Things will never be thc same  again.' The world is undergoing lhc ordeal by fire.  Hearts are being searched as never before. We are  revising our scheme of values. Much that formerly  seemed to be part of life is seen to be but dross, and  Is falling from us. A young English' officer coming  home from the front, found his mother entertaining  guests at bridge. She complained to him of the interference of the war with social life. 'Don't talk like  that, Mother,' cried the young man, 'out there in thc  trenches I have discovered that nothing matters except  God.'  "Nothing matters except God! That is the very  lesson which it is thc object of the war, and of those  related conditions and occurrences which have.yet to  come, are intended to leach us. Let us not cry 'peace  and safety' too soon, and expect to settle down and  renew the old life. How true is that instructive exclamation that things will never be thc same again! In  all nations the danger from without has for the time  being stimulated, national unity and cohesion;- but.  once the clanger from .-without is past,,that cohesion  will fail, and national unity will become as a rope.of  sand.,, Lord Ciirzon, than whom no more conservative  and responsible statesman exists, recently said thai  the close of the Svar will see an industrial revolution  the extent and consequences of which" it is impossible  to foresee. .Other leading ..statesmen, such as Lord  Milher and Mr. Balfour, have spoken in similar strain.  Ancl we know that it is true. David Beally, the gallant  admiral* who led.our navy into action1 the olher day:  and on whose shoulders surely the mantle of the  simple ancl heroic Nelson has fallen, a few weeks ago  wrote, over his signature, for publication, lhat we  should not have peace until there wasa national  revival of religion.  "Nothing matters except God! 'When we-have  learnt that, not merely as a pious sentiment, but when  as a stupendous fact it has been burnt and branded  into the very soul of thc world, so that in very trulh  we see Him'whom we have pierced, and mourn Him  whom we have crucified, then shall wc have peace.  "We are suffering thc penalty which in lhe divine  svsteni of governance is automatically imposed on  ihemselves by the nations which forget God. WorlcJ-  liness has been defined by one bishop as ^society  organizing itself without reference to God.' That is  surely what our sin as a nation has been. We arc keen  for reform. We rush off to our party conventions.,  ve acclaim this man,, wc disparage lhat man: we  clamor for laws, wc-agitate, we form leagues and associations for a thousand deferent purposes; we  h:iv<wMii^political-crises. our coalitions,_year in and  BEWARE OF WOODTICKS  i *���������������������������������������������  "Yesterday," said a Vancouver physician, "a  woman brought her little boy to my ollice. She  said the lad was complaining of a pain in the back  of the neck and that he had been unable to sleep  the pain was so great. On examining the lad I  found he had a high temperature and a very  rapid pulse.   On stripping thc little fellow I found  small aperture in thc skin just below the line of  the collar." I knew at once what was the matter.  A wood tick had taken up his quarters in the little  fellow's flesh with the object of going into housekeeping. Taking a hypodermic syringe I treated  the intruder to an injection of iodine. I then had  to use my knife to remove the body of the insect,  which,-!'might remark, is quite hard.  This is thc fourth wood tick I have removed  from the human tissue this spring. Two of these  ticks I have taken from the leg of a young woman  They had got inside of her stocking ancl then bur-  rowed their way into the flesh. Too much care,  1 think, cannot be taken as to where children play  and sit clown. .Woodticks are an exceedingly  dangerous enemy to thc human kind. This boy  1 speak of would probably have had a very dangerous illness if that woodtick had had another  24 hours residence within thc tissue."  PRODUCTION AND MARKETS  WILL THRESH CLOVER AND ALFALFA  Mr. C. S. Handcock, secretary of the Northern  Okanagan Farmers' Institute, is in receipt of the  following communication from thc Agricultural  Department, Victoria: "  Dear Sir: In view of the ever-increasing demand  for clover and alfalfa seed in all parts of this Province,  the scarcity of first-class seed of these crops, ancl ihe  consequent high prices prevailing, we arc considering  the advisability of purchasing a clover and alfalfa  thresher arid huller this summer. This machine to be  shipped aboul the Province' at the expense of. lhe  department and operated in any district where fields  of clover or alfalfa have been saved for seed, a nominal rate per bushel-being charged to "defray operating  expenses.  Usually thc second crop of alfalfa or clover is  saved for seed purposes.1 Hence there is yet time  this year for any farmers of your district who wish tp  keep a part of licir crop for seed-to do so.  Would you kindly make a few enquiries and ascertain the approximate acreage of thc above crops in  your district which would be saved for seed this year  in the event of our purchasing such a machine. Advise us as soon as possible re. this matter, and state in  your reply whether or not the farmers of your district would appreciate a move of this nature.  Thanking you for an*early reply. I remain,  Yours very truly, H. 0. English,  Chief Soil and Crop Inspector.  How is the war affecting the live  stock industry of Canada? Can this  country develop a profitable export  trade in livc-Slock products? If so,  how would such a trade affect Canada and jWhat advantage will il  yield lo the Canadian farmer? What  opportunities present themselves in  thc way of foreign business as a  result of our participation in iHe  war? Will more or belter poultry,  hogs, sheep, cattle, horses insure  any profit or benefit to the man  who owns and raises them? Will  systematic or organized action in  breeding, feeding,and selling be of"  any service in making Canada  henceforth a powerful factor in lhe.  world's product business?  If anyone is interested, cither-tin  the town or on the farm, in the  problems which each or all of these  questions raise, lie should secure  and lead a copy of Pamphlet No. Id  "Production and Market," recently  published by thc Live Stock Commissioner, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa. Thc pamphlet has -  the unique feature of dealing not  only with the question of production, but as well, with the equally  important problem of markets.  ANOTHER CONVENTION  The Conservatives .of Vancouver .have about  decided that there .will be -another convention for  the selection of candidates, to-carry lhc standard  Vu,. the.,, forthcoming Provincial elections. ^Prominent members of the party have expressed themselves" as favoring the selection of another slate  />r thc confirmation ofthc present one by another  convention.. It makes no difference, they say who  will be selected but that anolhcr convention is  necessary they declare with emphasis. If this is  thc stand taken by the parly in Vancouver, it is  probable the conventions in.the Interior will.be  held over again, and ihe candidates named at the  conventions held fifteen months ago either  endorsed or new candidates named."

Farmers selling  eggs, as well as retailers, are warned lhat the  inspectors are putting the Act in force now, the  penalty for failing to observe thc law being a  maximum .penalty ol" $100.  Never let a duck intended for market run lo  the water. Feed a liberal mash, keep their quarters clean and give them all the water they \vanl|  to drink.  and hogs is showing substantial development.

They "had over 20,000 women at  work as temporary helpers, and over 20,000 men  were also.-trying lo fill the gap. During the war  over 450,000,000 letters and 40,000,000,: parcels  had been sent lo the Iroops in France. Those  letters and parcels weighed about 1,500 tons per  week.

With the except ion  of-a few details it is identical with  the prohibition measure brought  into force in the state of Maine in  1851. Rhode- island, followed in  1853. and Connecticut and New  York on 1854. The year 1P55 was  the'shoom year in prohibition bills.  New Hampshire, Massachusetts.  Maryland, Delaware. Indiana, Nebraska, Ohio and Illinois climbed  upon the water wagon that year.  Rhode Island staid dry for ten  years,': from 1853 to 1863. Again in  188(5 it went back to; prohibition.  This lime it remained dry only for  a term of three years. The same  stroy might be told of. other states  which went dry when prohibition  sentiment was strongest. The total  population now under prohibition  in Ihe Stales is nineteen millions,  while there are 43,000,000 who  went dry ancl later repudiated prohibition.

These are thc British Government's  own ollicial pictures, ancl their  Royal Highnesses, the Duke and  Duchess of Connaught have given  permission to advertise the film as  being under their patronage.'  Recently when these pictures  were shown at Vancouver, the interest was oso keen that two weeks'  of afternoon and evening performances were not sudicient, and permission was given for a return of  the film for another week.
