Monday  was   no   exception   to   the   established rule except, possibly,  that it was a little moreso, with  a kaiser-bent appetite added. In  fact, everybody wanted to take  a swat at Kaiser Bill, and they  seemed to enjoy thc novelty of  hitting him now and then.   The  irony of it was in his coming j  up serenely after every knockdown, so the. satisfaction in the  game seemed to be entirely in  the pocket of the person selling  the    knock-out    drops.      The  pocket  bulged  before  the  day  ^vas  ended., It  was,  indeed,   a  big spending day, and every refreshment    booth    and    lunch  table did a lively business.

A Good Idea  The Hamilton Herald advocates the appointment of an expert newspaper man who could  prepare the host of military and  food orders and regulations  with which the country is deluged in concise, understandable  English that would be readily  comprehended by tbe ordinary  mind. As a rule they are so  ambiguous and confusing that  the services of a legal- expert  from Philadelphia is required  to interpret them  many ��������������������������� ,.,  sympathy will, flow to Mr. and  Mrs: Rogert in their great sorrow.  SERVICE pf PRAYER  ynion pf churches in JSnfltrfiy  In t\ Seryfc* of Intercession  There was the right spirit in  the union service of prayer held  in Fnderby Methodist Church  last-Sunday evening when Rev.  Mr. Gretton, Rev. Mr. Stott and  Mr. Welsh, for the Baptist minister, joined in impressing upon  their people the vital need of  prayer in the hone of victory in  the great struggle in "Europe.  Rev. Mr. Stott preached a  sermon that brought home the  need^of^sincerity^and~ f ai tlrw  j the part of the people of the  Empire, and the further need  of a transfdrmation in the private Jives of our people before  there can be any hope of receiving the Divine help so  greatly needed.  A very pleasing feature of  the service was a solo sung by  Miss Lange, which fitted most  sympathetically into thc spirit  of'the gathering.  The collection of the evening  ���������������������������amounting to $28.15���������������������������was  turned over to thc prisoners of  war fund.  Morning Baseball  A big crowd gathered in thc  sports grounds to witness thc  games and field contests, and to  meet old friends���������������������������more,particularly to meet old friends���������������������������and  thc spirit of ihe crowd was  nearer that of the old-time celebrations, though" lacking the!  sharp rivalry in thc rooting and  plaving of the games.  However, the celebration was  a big success. Everybody was  pleased and satisfied with what  thev saw and experienced.  Thc morning 'game "of baseball between the-Enderby and  Armstrong intermediates " was  snappy in spots if riot all over.  The score, 11-2 in favor of Enderby, told the story'.  Afternoon  Game  In   thc /afternoon" lhc   grand  stand was.ywcll filled.-   The big  attraction of the day���������������������������the base  ball game between Vernon and  Enderby seniors, did not prove  so  great  an  attraction  as was  anticipated.     This,   game *" wa?  umpired  by Jqhn  Iddings.  an  oUMime   leaguer,   who   looked  the part and added weight  to  the psychology of the battle, as  the  war, correspondent  would  say. There wasn t any tendency  on the part, of the players to dis-  fmte the umpire's decisions���������������������������  casfwise, not at close range. ,  Thc score again tells the tale,  and leaves very little to be said-  Twelve runs >������������������ to two doesn't  indicate good baseball���������������������������but it  satisfied..  "Horse Racing  Following the baseball game  . If it can properly be said that  any   public   gathering   for   the  purpose of bidding farewell to  old personal friends and friends  of the community, is an enjoyable affair, then the event given  in   the   Enderby   Opera   House  last Friday was enjoyable.  But.  in a deeper sense it was anything but enjoyable, for it was -.  to say the community's public  farewell to Mr. and Mrs. F. S;  Stevens,   who   have   been   residents of Enderby for a dozen  years or more, and in that time  shared with  our citizens  their  joys and  sorrows,  and lent  a  helping hand, all along the way.  As a result of this close touch  in all  matters  of  a  public or  semi-public    nature,    Mr.   and  Mrs. Stevens havc been looked  upon   as   permanent   residents,  and home friends.    It was only -  natural,   therefore   that   evcry-  body> who could attend should  bc there.    All brought baskets  of good  things  to eat, and all  ate  heartily  and   talked  lustily '  in order to keep back thc little  sob of sorrow that persisted in  getting into the throat.  It was a very impromptu  affair. During the evening  Mayor Coltart briefly expressed  the regrets of the community  in losing such, valued friends,  and hoped .to* greet them at  some future Uimc when it  should be our ,'good fortune to'  have*"-them return.  Dr. Keith,  on behalf of the  ladies   of,   Enderby,    taking   aV  little; child Jby-JJic,.. hand,..presented ,to, Mrs.votcvcns through,5  the , child   and\. a : bouquet, of,  roses, a life membership in the  British Bed Cross.        " .    - .  Mrs. Slevcns briefly , acknowledged dhc gift, and. expressed her appreciation of the  great kindness and thc friendship of the people of Enderbv.  Mr. Winter, speaking for the  Japanese laborers at the Mill  apd in tbe lumber camps, pre-  sented Mr. Stevens with a valu-  able,watch chain.  Mr. Stevens replied in a few  words, expressing his appreciation for all the co-operative assistance he had received from  tlie businessmen and citizens of  Enderby, who had sympathetically shared with him the jovs  ancl sorrows of these trying  days.

Splendid Response of Men to the  Requirements of Military Training  Things Have Changed  The beneficial effects of camp  training on dratted men are by  this lime pretty generally recognized. Ihey "arc exemplified,  we are told by Capt. Edward J.  Abbott,-of Camp Grant, by his  own regiment, nicknamed "The  Melting Pot," because it takes  "tbe pale, sallow striplings, the  ���������������������������self-indulgent weaklings,.....^  \ybose wills were like rubber, j group asVve see it  bending in the line of least re-'" '  sistence," and melts them together, toughening them as the  blast toughens the steel'in the  crucible. The commanding officer of "The Melting Pot Regiment," Colonel Charles H. How-  land, was formerly commandant of the Pacific Branch United  States discilpinary barracks and  is an expert in tbe art of manufacturing soldiers out of unpromising    material,    but    his  pears petty, unreal, artificial.  We were not accepting things  at our valuation, we were taking  another's valuation for our*;,.

The comradeship is even  closer than family, for there  are no outside friends.  "In school and outside I always associated with 'gentlemen.'

It is natural  for a strong colony of bees to  swarm in early summer when  honey is coming in, but the  breaking up of thc colony cuts  down the honey yield; while  watching for and hiving swarms  takes a great deal of thc beekeeper's time, and thc swarm  may escape notice and fly riway.  The methods of controlling  swarming that have been tested  at the , Central Experimental  Farm, Ottawa, fall under three  heads.  General Measures: cParlly  shading the apiary; providing a  large entrance with deep space  between combs and floor; providing plenty of room in thc  brood chambers. and supers;  and young queens. These precautions, while valuable havc  becn found insufficient in themselves to prevent the bees from  raising queens in preparation  for swarming.0  Manipulations to prevent any  morc than one swarm: Thc  queen's wings arc clipped, preferably during fruit-bloom, and  when a prime swarm issues and  is still in the air, the queen is  picked up from the ground and  placed in a cage, and the hive  is,, removed to a new stand. A  new hive containing the caged  queen is then placed on the old  I'} stand to receive thc returning  swarm, th .queen being liberated later. The field bees join  the swarm, leaving the parent  hive so much weakened that it  is not likely to swarm again. To  make certain, however, the  parent hive may be merely  turned around and not removed  to the distant stand till five days  later. This method of swarm  control necessitates immediate  attention when the swarm issues, but, as the manipulations  are simple, they can often bc  carried out by the home folks  should the. beekeeper bc away.  . Manipulations to ., prevent  swarming'altogether: At the  time of writing,-'none, of the  manipulations that have been  tried -Has succeeded except thc  cutting out of all queen. cells  .every seven or eight days, and  this failed during a heavy honey  flow from clover forty miles to  the north at Ottawa in J9J6  ���������������������������when tbe, bees raised queens  from worker larvae, : and  swarms issued hefore the queen  cells were capped over. Jt has,  however, heen found possible to  prevent swarming in' out-apiaries north of Ottawa, hy, this  means, although it'-* entailed a  visit each week from the middle  of May until the middle of August, and much, time was spent  in examining each colony.  Experiments in the control of  swarming are heing continued,  especially ..along, the following  lines, which' seem the most  promising: .v  Testing systems of raising  broods to the super.

Na-  jturc   (London, May 2nd)   from  .which wc excerpt thc following  i comments,   is   somewhat   cautious; and doubtless the recent  "Americanism"  of   thc  London  press, which is deplored by all  good Britons.makes caution desirable, and even necessary. But  none the less thc articles in the  Times are described by thc re  viewer as causing  "some  little  excitement       in       agricultural  circles," as "thc method, if welt  founded,    would    revolutionize  agriculture and overcome some  grteat  difficulties  in  food   production."   Wc read on:  "At present it is impossible  to express any opinion, as no  official sU'Wment of detail has  yet been made. It was stated  in thc article that the government experts had been much  impressed by the method, but  inquiries at thc Food Production Department put rather a  different complexion on the  case.-' According to thc article,  the method consists in delivering a mixture of wheat or oat  seed and artificial fertilizer under the surface of grass land in  July. By September or October  the cereal is stated to have been  up eight or ten inches high. Live  stock are then run on the field  to eat down the corn and grass;  the effect of this is said to. be a  strengthening of root. growth.  The protection from frosts to  the roots of the cereal by the  covering of turf is further said  to cause an earlier start of normal spring growth, more heads  to be thrown up, more rapid development of the plant, and an  earlier. ripening of the grain. :  "The harvesting is proposed  to he done - hy means., of an ordinary mowing-machine fitted  with an extra knife at the proper height ahove the: grass to  cut the heads of the grain. The  lower Jcnife is to cut the hay as  usual, and the upper knife to  act as a 'header. Special,, arrangements are propose^ for  collecting the grain ana* straw.  *'!t would he'easy to enlarge  on the advantages of ���������������������������tlie proposed meth������������������4 if it materialise^  hut expectations should he re-  iiressed until a definite trial has  ieen made and seen-hy compe-  eht observers. Agricultural experiments are inst as full of pitfalls as any others, and agricultural , literature contains many  proposals for revolutionizing  crop production which, unfortunately, never matured.  "There is a great deal of evidence to show that growing  grass=has-aspernici6us_efl;ecMn  wheat sown in the ordinary  way, as careless-farmers have  learned to their cost. Mr. Pickering's experiments at the Wo-  hurn Fruit Farm further demonstrate the incompatibility of  qrass and crops. Jt will he well,  jicrcfore. to await definite and  unexceptionable evidence before attaching importance to  the new claims."  Rights of Labor  Employers opposed to labor  unions will find little comfort  in the following trenchant  statement given out by Hon. T.  W. Crothers, minister of labor:  "Perhaps in larger numbers  than ever before complaints  reach thc minister of labor from  workingmen that their employers forbid, under penalty of  dismissal, their becoming members of any labor organization."  Such complaints arc generally well founded. The minister  j deeply regrets this attitude on  ��������������������������� the pari of so many employers,  believing il is well calculated to  produce- serious labor disturbances. Hc maintains that.every  man is at perfect liberty to associate himself with his fellow  workers in any legitimate labor  organization without thereby  subjecting himself to penalties  or discriminations of any character. Hc expresses tlie hope  that employers may accept this  attitude in this regard, and that  hereafter no just cause for such  complaints may arise.  The minister has also written  the general manager of one of  thc largest concerns in Canada,  which has had several labor  disturbances, saying  othcr things, as follows:  "My own judgement is (you  will pardon mc for stating it so  frankly) that it is the duty of  thc employer henceforth to use  such means as may bc found  necessary for the maintenance  of peace and contentment with  his workmen. The fact that a  great many have succeeded in  doing so is strong evidence that  it is neither necessary nor expedient that others should appeal to the government for interference whenever .any labor  disturbance is impending. Generally speaking, I have found  workingmen reasonable and responsive to considerate, 4rank,  fair"- treatment, but naturally  they do not appreciate being entirely ignored, concerning conditions���������������������������financial , and otherwise���������������������������in enterprises , in which  they are engaged* and ������������������this es-  peciallv under war conditions,  with high salaries and large  profits." ;     .      -   ��������������������������� .  ^^SS&iS  Some Simple Don'ts  among  The B. C. Veterans' Weekly  gives this bit of advice in tabloid form to returned soldiers,  but thc advice is good for civilians as well:  DON'T imagine you are thc  only hero back in Canada.  DON'T wear your gold stripe  on civilian clothes; it doesn't  look well.  DON'T believe all thc bad you  are told about the other fellow.  DON'T take a job and forget  to turn up;> it hurts the cause.  DON'T expect too much. Remember there are a few thousand to come back. Try and  make it easy for them.  DON'T evade saluting an officer; it shows bad training.  DON'T forget to show up at  the Bay.  DON'T imagine you show superiority  by  not  applauding.  DON'T  bring  your  personal  troubles  to a  general meeting.  Let   the   executive   deal   with  them.     That's  what   they are  there for.

LET'S  HEAR FROM  THE  FARMERS  If we are to judge, by whal wc hear, from  many sources, our farmers are pretty well "A'ed  up'' on these bureaucratic articles on how to  plant, how lo raise hogs, whal lo clo lo save lhe  wheat and bacon and honey bees and pipped  chicks. And we are convinced that lhe space  devoted in the weekly press of the counlry to  these departmental letters, valuable as they arc,  could bc more profitably devoted to letters from  the farmers themselves, telling what they feel  is most needed in their respective districts; bow  lhcy have improved their live' slock and lhcir  farms, and how far they arc prepared lo  themselves by assisting the dislrict in a  ���������������������������co-operative movement along all lines.  seems lo tbe Commoner that we havc had  too much preaching at thc fanner,  and not enough practical co-operation between  thc farmer and thc Government. It seems to  us that our farmers arc not taking advantage  of the important place they hold in- thc country's life.

ORGANIZE FOR PEACE  It is significant that many of our Empire leaders are urging aftcr-the-war preparation upon  our people. It is significant for many reasons.  Not particularly that there is any likelihood of  an early end of the war for this seems far distant  yet, but from the point of view of preparedness  when peace does come. The Allies havc put their  wholccff ort in pressing forward to victory. When  questions have come up demanding attention,  the cry has been "wait till the war is over." Put  our leaders are now beginning to sec that Germany and her allies havc been organizing for  peace while thc war is on quite as effectually as  they organized for war in the years of peace.  Jn a recent speech in London Premier Hughes  of Australia said that any policy ignoring the  intimate relationship between national safety and  economic welfare, was doomed sooner or later  to destroy thc nation adopting it. Hitherto, Great  Britain had rated these two essentials as separate  entities. A country's economic safety and development rested upon the organigation covering  'every parrot the haitional economic enterprises.  Germany was today preparing for peace as she  did for war. Germany was the best organized  nation. Great Britain's policy, except as regards  the navy, was a policy of laisscr faire. Nevertheless, wc arc sujxirior to Germany in initiative and  resource-  Has Britain organized for peace? That was  the great question now, said Mr. Hughes, unless  Britain was to sink into a third-rate nation after  thc war. Hc was glad to know that since he had  last been here, something had bcen done to organize our industries and prepare i'or peace. He  was not criticizing what had been done. Hc knew  thc difficulties. But not enough had becn done.  Mr. Hughes emphasized the danger in which  Brilish commerce and industry would stand after  thc war, unless we at least were as well organized  as other nations. Reconstruction after tbe war  would be a mighty and complex task. 'There  would bc a colossal demobilization of many millions of men and women.y Unemployment of labor  and capital would create crises shaking the national fabric to its foundations unless there-was  effective organization. Something had been done,  and more was being done, in'order'to insure a  sufficiency of food and raw'-material, but hitherto no definite policy, fiscal or economical, had  bcen declared. No national organization had been  established, no machinery had been created to  deal with the many inevitable problems. This  ought to bc done without delay. It will be too  late to do it after the war when confusion will  reign supreme.  Look inward! for you have a lasting fountain  of happiness at home that will always bubble  up if you will but dig for it.

Cells containing  the rotten larvae have their cap-  pings discolored, sunken, irregularly pettorated or removed altogether. Tbe remains dry lo  a scale which adheres tightly  to the wall of the cell. This disease may he treated hy shaking  the hecs into a clean hive containing frames fitted with narrow strips of foundation, and  hurwing or hailing the combs,  as explained in the Experiment  al Farms flulNin No. 26, (Second Series) "Pees and. Jfaw to  ftcep 'them."  European Foul Brood attacks  most of the larvae before the>  are cappeit over while they lie  curlcd-up- in _the_bottom of. th?  cell. The larvae turns yellowish  or gre>ish and melts into a pulp  which will not rone or  will rope hut little, and has a  slightly sour odor. A few capped  larvae are often affected. Some-,  times a fetid odor is present.  The dried scale is easily removed. Italian bees will resist  this disease, and therefore the  best treatment is to introduce  Italian queens of a good strain.  The shaking treatment should  also be carried out in many  cases.  In Sacbrood the dead larvae  with darkened skin lies extended, in the cell. Usually the  entire larva can be removed  from thc cell without breaking  the skin. On puncturing the  skin the contents are found to  be more or less watery. Colonies affected hy this disease  usually recover and no treatment is necessary.  To guard against foul brood,  do not buy bees on combs or  used bee supplies, unless you  are sure they are clean. Do not  feed your bees .with honey from  another apiary. Keep the colonies strong and avoid robbing.

BUTLER, A. M., M. D.  Food must be good, it is frequently bad, being contaminated  by disease germs brought to it  from flies,dust> impure water,  unclean vessels in which food ia  kept, and most commonly of all  from the hands of those who are  carrying germs. No one who is  sick with an Infectious diseas*  or who is Just recovering from  such a disease should have anything to do with the handling or  the preparation of foods. Tainted foods are worse than tainted  money. See that ail food Is  fresh, pure,, and clean. Milk Is  the most dangerous of all foods;  tuberculosis, typhoid, scarlet fever, and diphtheria may be contracted from It. Fresh air Is as  lmportant as 9ood food, more  Important perhaps. Fresh air Is  one of the greatest factors In  building up the resistance of the  body to pneumonia, colds, la  grippe and consumption. Live  aa much as possible in the open  air and by all means sleepwith  tho windows of your bedroom  opon summer and winter. Dally  exercise In the open air le essential to good health. Thle together with a daily bath and a  oheerful disposition will do much  to keep you healthy and happy  to a good old age.  ; (Copyricht, 1S10,  by W. O.  Chapman.)  j I. V.

Perhaps no oilier philosopher, living or dead, was so  completely ".possessed   of   those  j humanitarian ideals wc preach  jso much ahout as Leo Tolstoi,  i the Russian count,  now passed  ! to    his    rest,    who    not    only  'preached thc doctrine of univcr-  Isal brotherhood, but lived a life  [fully   in   harmony   with   these  I ideals.    It probably is not compatible  with  present-day  ethics  , to do more lhan preach the doc-, ~       . .  trine of universal  brotherhood, clcals extensively with Uiat pnn-  The Occult Science of Life  It is a proven fact, backed by  modern science, that all power  is inherent in every heart; and  also is proven the occult principle lhat "thought goes in  waves"- it also generates and  controls vibration. He who has  learned the law of thought, by  observing the necessary occult  practices*, can gratify his every  desire. It opens the door to unlimited [lower, and success is  the=sure result in certain ways  I of thinking. To awaken thc oc-  {cult within enables one to  jawaken il in others, and Life  \ lakes on a new and higher  'meaning.

And thc old story  will begin again, thc awful customary acts.  "The editor of lhc daily press  will begin virulently to stir men  to hatred and manslaughter in  the name r6l* patriotism, happy  in thc receipt of increased income. Manufacturers, ��������������������������� merchants, contractors for military  stores will hurry joyously about  their business, in the hope of  double receipts.  "All sorts of government officials will buzz about, forsccing  a possibility of purloining some  more than usual. The military  authorities Avill hurry hither  and thither, drawing double pay  and rations, and with thc expectation of receiving for the death  of other men various little ornaments they so highly value,  such as ribbons, crosses, orders  and stars. Idle ladies and gentlemen will make a great fuss, entering their names in advance  for the Red Cross society, and  ready to bind up thc wounds of  those whom their husbands and  brothers will mutilate; and they  will imagine that in doing so  they, arc performing a most  Christian work.  "And, smothering despair Irr  their souls by songs, licentiousness and wine, men will trail  along, torn from peaceful labor,  from their wives, mothers ant!  children���������������������������hundreds of thousands of honest, simple-minded,  good-natured men with murderous weapons iri their hands���������������������������  anywhere they may be driven.  "They will march, hunger,  freeze, suffer sickness and die  from it, or finally come to some  place where they will be slain  by thousand's to lull thousands  themselves with no reason���������������������������  men who have never done- nor  could do them any hnscheif.  "And when the number of  sicjc and wounded and killed become so great that there are not  hands enough left to pick them  up, and when the air Is so infected with putrefying scent of  the 'food for powder' that even  _thc^authoritics_fihd=it^disagreCi  able, a truce will be made, thc  wounded will he picked up anyhow, thc sick will be brought in  and huddled together in heaps,  thc killed will be covered with  earth and lime, and once more  all thc crowd of deluded men  will bleed on and on till those  who devised thc project, weary  of il, or still those who found it  profitable receive lhcir spoil.  "And so once more men will  be made savage, fierce and brutal, and love will wane in the  world, and thc Christianizing of  mankind, which has already begun, will 'lapse for scores and  hundreds of ycars. And so once  more the men who reaped profit from it all, will assert with  assurance that since there has  been a war there must needs  have bcen one, and that other  wars must follow, and they will  again prepare future genera-  lions for a continuance of  slaughter, deceiving them from  their births."  lhc essence of Divinity. Man  should spare no expense or  pains in gaining knowledge and  power, to help in loving service  to advance his fellow men in  pursuit of happiness,, here and  hereafter. "The field is broad,"  a nd if properly understood,  there is nothing to equal the  Occult philosophy in satisfying  the cravings of the human  heart. Ils theories and Iheir  practice should go hand in  hand.  Thc true Occultist occupies a  throne. His throne is the will.  Hc is able lo say, "I will be  what 1 willbc." Through the  power of thought hc has direct  control of vibration, and can  always command thought, and  direct and * control though!.  whicb naturally depends on thc  will. As thc will is controlled by  Love, il is plain to bc seen it  musl bc gained through thought  concentration and the Love  principle from within.  Thought is vcrjr powerful  when understood and properly  applied. Wc sometimes find  it very difficult to control the  surging thoughts, the vitalizers  of the brain, but with never-  falling confidence victory must  bc ours. There is in each of us  a potential something, trying to  grow in the direction of good,  attracted upward0by thc rays pf  the sun, which recuperates us  in mind and body.. I think if we  follow out bur ideas and.inspirations and noble aspirations,  there would be more harmony  in contact with our associates.  As the law of life demands  that there bc an eaualitv in interchange of thought with those  with whom wc come in close  contact, it is easy to dwell in thc  thought that you have morc  power over -yourself than any  v-.i\T\ can have o\or you.  The laws of life provide for.  and maintain, every man's freedom, to choose what be,,wiJJ. If  we believe more in the power  of life to work in its true order  than in its perverted condition-  we arc protected and safe. The  forces of life create and control  the whole world, as many of us  --      -     - -    fJr  Know.     'I bought   force   js  value as a great developer of  success.  "3ut few of us know how to  send out great positive thought  waves of Love, Hope and Cheer  for the unfortunate ones who  are in ignorance of this great  power of thought vihration, that  cannot he seen, nor heard* ordinarily; yet many of us have  felt the thought vibration* of  others both near aful far away.

A man makes his own surroundings, although he blames  oilers for it. Now, just stop  and think.

A few years ago a girl who  won many blue ribbons at coun  ty fairs in the pony classes said,  according   to   a  writer  in   the  Horse World:      " I have becn  with horses all my life and  I  think   of   them   as   being   my  friends.    I began driving alone  when I was five years old, when  a black Shetland pony was presented to me which stood about  twelve hands and two inches in  height.     I   drove   him   several  years and then had another one  which T drove in a tandem, and  showed Ihem at lhc county fair  and took first prize every time.  I   enjoyed   drivinlg   behind jmy  father's" four-in-hand but liked  my pony tandem  best.    I now  have  a   beautiful  pair,  of   bay  j hackney ponies, standing about  thirteen   hands   high.     I'  have  j driven them since I was eleven  vears  old,  and have  taken   the  'blue ribbon at  the horse show  for the. Threes, years I have had  them,   and  I   certainly  have   a  arcat deal  of snort  with  them  in any si vie of driving or riding  and can fully appreciate thefun  anv girl can havc with a pony."  Parents    do    not    commonly  know thc real benefit which a  oony may be to a little airl or  boy.   It may bc safelv said that  in'thc case' of  a   child with  a  tendency to bc delicate a Shet-.  land pony will pay for himself  in  thc saving hc will make in  doctors' bills^ to say nothing of  the additional and morc important benefit resulting from  the.  building up of a strong, rugged  constitution  to assist   in  carrying   thc   burdens   which   come  later in life.

Secretary  of   Enemy  In a speech lo thc Reichstag  a i'ew clays ago, Dr. Von Kuchl-  mann, German Foreign Secretary, declared that what was desired for thc German people  and thcin allies was "a irec,  strong and independent existence" within the boundaries  drawn for them "by history."  Tlie Gcrman secretary declared  Germany would have to decline  to make any prior concessions  by staling her position as to Belgium,in a way that would bind  her: without similarly binding  Germany's  enemies.  Referring to the rcsponsibil-  I. ity of the war as he viewed it,  von Jvuclhmann said: "J do not  Relieve anv responsible man in  Germany, not even Uic Emperor or llie members of the Imperial government, even for.a  Jnoment Relieved they could win  fbe domination, of Europe hy  starting tins war, The idea of  world domination in "Europe .is  Utopian, as was proved J*y Napoleon."  After declaring that tlie revelations which had hccn made  showed Russia as tiie power  which planned and desired the  \> war, aided and abetted by  f ranee, and England's attitude  strengthening the Russian de-  , sire for conflict, Pr. Von Kuehl-  jnann again declared that Germany! had not, entertained, any  Relief that this war.could lead  1 even to the domination of Europe, and much less that of the  world-  "Jn introducing his statements  of the German war aims, he  said: "I consider it necessary to  say quite simply, and in a way  easy for all to understand, what  our positive desires are.  "We wish for the German  people and otwr allies a free,  strong, independent existence  within the boundaries drawn  for us hy history.    Wc desire  j overseas possessions corresponding to our greatness and  wealth, the freedom of thc seas  carrying our trade to all parts  of thc world.  "These'; in brief," added thc  foreign secretary, "are our  roughly sketched war aims, thc  realization of which is absolutely vital and necessary for  Germany."  With reference to the peace  question, Dr. von Kuclhmann  quotes from former Premier  Asquith's speech of May 16th,  in which he said that the British Government would not turn  a deaf ear to a peace proposal  if it was not couched in ambiguous terms.  "We likewise can make the  same declaration," said the foreign secretary, "knowing it to  be our policy. Once the moment arrives, when I care not  lo prophecy, tliat thc nations  which arc at present locked in  battle will exchange peace proposals, onc of the perliminary  conditions must bc certain degrees of mutual confidence in  each other's honesty and chivalry.  "For so long," continued Dr.  von Kuchlmann, "as every overture is regarded by others as a  peace offensive���������������������������as., a trap or as  something false for thc purpose of sowing disunion between thc Allies, so long as all  attempt at a rapproachment is  a I once vehemently denounced  by,, thc enemies of a rapproachment in the various countries so  long will it be impossible lo sec  how any exchange of ideas in  regard to peace be begun.

But whether this will really put him back on his feet depends on what the public does  to  heln  or hinder.  In the past, the attitude of  the public has been a greater  handicap than his physical disability. People havc assumed  him to be helpless. Too often,  they have persuaded him to become so.  For the disabled soldier there  has becn "hero-worship"; for  the civilian cripple there has Smith,  becn a futile kind of sympathy.  Both do the cripple more harm  than good.  All the cripple needs is thc  kind of job he is fitted for, and  perhaps a little training in preparation for it.

Drunk with liberty, which they did not understand, filled with idealistic notions about the equality of man,  and lacking individual initiative, production in Russia lias  practically ceased, according to  the evidences reaching, the outside world. Transportation and  distribution is so disorganized  that even were lhe peasants 'of  the land producing their usual  amount of foodstuffs, thc people in the manufacturing population would still bc wilhoul  lhc necessary 1'ood supplies lo  sustain them in safely and comfort. Unless lhe people of Russia steady down and organize  themselves or allow olher authorities to organize them, there  is thc posibility of one of thc  mosl stupendous disasters to a  nation and a great people that  ever occurred in history. With-, thCm over  out  authority   for  whom   lhcy! diflienlt  have fear and respect, the Russian peasant seems to be without motive or initiative. We  read of peasants in their anger  against the properly holding  class of thc late aristocratic re  gime, destroying not only the  personal effects of tlie nobility  and thc owning class, but the  very crops which they them-.  selves had produced for tlie nation at large. In their reaction  against property owning, they  havc destroyed thc goose which  laid thc golden egg. We read  oi? peasants in certain villages  having gone to such extremes  as to seize the eattlc~of thc local  land owner, now deposed, flay  them.alive and turn them free.  Without the <m-I motive ol'jy  compulsion lo cultivate the land  i'or the land-owner, now that  the land has reverted lo thc  peasants and lhcy themselves  arc thc owners, lhcy havc neglected to work and produce  liie necessaries of life. To such  a pass is thc nation drifting  lhat recent dispatches have reported that the so-called Government of present-day Russia  arc sending plcnipplcntarics to  China, -the formerly despised  and so called decadent neighbor to the easl, to make arrangements for provisions to tide  ncxt winter.
