C, FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 1915  $1.00 PER\YEAR  I  i  IRI SESSION OF  EITY COUNCIL  The' session of the city council  last Monday evening was brief,  there being a paucity of important  - questions to come before tbe board.  The business transacted was mainly,  .of a routine, nature,, inclnding the  allowance of the monthly accounts.  Mayor Gaw and- Aid. Bickerton,  Bonthron, Donaldson, Manly, .McCallum and Smith "were granted.  Returning Officer Huton reported  ^he^reBult of the poll on  the  hospital aid bylaw; ��������� ' , - "  "Mr." Santano addressed  tbe coun-  ���������   cil -'and   asked for a rebate of   his  ' "water .bill   to   the   minimum" rate,  owing to sickness and out  of   em-  ,'   plopoaent. The .request was granted:  ^   .   On motion  of   Aid.. Manly   anc  '  Bickerton; .the bo lrd  of trade  was  voted a grant of $150, payable-after  the 1st of Augustr    Aid. Bickerton,  in speaking on. the resolution, said  -' he' supposed it would  be  necessary  "to give   the  board K something   for  .   publicity  work,' even   though  the  eity might afterwards be compelled  \to support some of the people   attracted "here.. ���������    ~7  The abairman  of  the   board  of  ''works reported.- that .satisfactory, ar-  ['  rangements   had. been   made  with  Mr Larsen for the,.construction of a  cement, sidewalk, in   front-of the  Hotel   Province,   and  the work   of  - laying   the   same   \\a< now in progress.    Mr.~Larsen   had   paid   into  the eiiy treasury the amount of the  cost above a board  walk.    He  also  reported that Mr. Dinsmore had refused $50 for the gravel on  his  lot.  The final  adjustment of matters  in.connection with the fill on   Winnipeg   avenue   was  referred   to the  chairman of the board of works..  The chairman of the health and  relief committee reported that recently he had been compelled to re-^  fuse aid to a number of applicants.  He also stated that the resiients of  '"Little Eholt" had deposited large  quantities of rock, taken from their  properties, in the strerts. He wished  to know if the city team would be  justified in removing them on cleanup day. The other members of  council thought tbe owners "of the  properties from w hence they came  should be requested to remove them'.  He recommended that the health  officer be instructed to inspect milk  and dairies twice monthly.  On motion, the chairman of. the  health and relief committee was instructed to notify, the health officer  to inspect creameries and muke  milk tests monthly.  The hospital aid bylaw was recon  side red and finally passed.  The chauman of the cemetery  committee reported that he bad not  yet obtained an estimate of the cost  of a permanent fence around the  burial grounds.  During   a    discussion   on   relief  The Rainbow and Niobe   ,  In "an interesting review ot the  naval activities on the Canadian Pacific and Atlautic coasts Hon. J. O.  Hazen, minister of the naval Bervice,  referred in appreciative terms to the  work of .the Rainbow and Niobe as  well as .the auxiliary craft" which  were taken over by the admiralty.  The'Rainhow, it will be remembered,  was in commission-when the war began, but. unfortunately the Niobe  was lying dismantled in Halifax and  it -was almost two months before  she 'was made ready for service.  Finally she was attached - to the  North Atlantic squadron and has  been doing duty ever since.  The Rainbow was able to render  service of the greatest importance  from the very start. She was despatched to the south to protect the  sloops Angerine and Shearwater,  then proceeding north, and since  that time has been associated with  the Newcastle and Idzurno in guarding the Canadian frade routes It  was the six-inch guns of the Rainbow that kept the Leipzig at a distance during the first few weeks of  the war, and undoubtedly were it  not for her presence in the Pacific  some of our liners would have suffered from the depredations of the  kaiser!s cruiser which now lies at  the bottom of the Atlantic. When  the" war is over "both the Niobe and  Rainbow probably will revert to the  status of training ships, for which  they ' were acquired, but, whatever  happens them they never again  will be targets for the ridicule of a  lot of c ieap politicians  NEWS OF HE CII?  The board of trade, at its meeting  Tuesday nighty discussed matters in  connection with the growing of  sugar beets in the valley and the  ultimate establishment of -a beet  sugar factory here. The secretary  was instructed to gather ajl the data  obtainable on the subject, and a  committee was appointed to interview E. C.Hunt, assistant provincial horticulturalist, and requesl bim  to induce the government to plant  small plots of sugar beets in different parts of the valley in order to  ascertain where the best results can  be obtained Two new members  were elected to the board. '  The Red .Cross society has ap  pointed ^Tuesday, April 20, as the  date on which socks will be received  for the soldiers. A committee of  the Daughters~nf the Empire will be  at tbe old McKim & LeRoy store,  on First street, on that day from 10  to 6 o'clock to receive gifts of. these  goods.  While out driving last Sunday  afternoon, Mrs. Mann and her  mother, Mrs. Rutherford, m^t with  an accident .and received slight injuries. ^The horse took fright at an  auto and overturned the buggy,  throwing the ladies to the ground.

What a wealth of "classic myth  and ancient legend lies behind the  pomp and wreck of history that tbe  shores of the Hellespont, or Dardanelles, have witnessed!  Why is it called- the Hellespont?  Because "pontua" means a sea, and  because the Greeks- named this particular sea for Helle,the goddess who  fell into its waters while she was  riding through the air above them  on the ram of the Golden r-leece.  Through the same strait at a later  time sailed Jason and the Argonauts, in search of the Golden  Fleece.  Why the Dardanelles? In honor  of Dardanum, a city that Greek  colonists founded on the strait not  far from ancient Ilium, the Trov of  classic history. Ilium! The walled  city of- Priam, the descendant ot  Dardanus, that the Greeks captured  by craft the ten years' siege of which  Homer sang.  The plains w'here Agamemnon led  his Argive hosts echoed last month  to tho thunder of guns on the British battleship Agamemnon. Near  by towers Mount Ida, where Aphrodite won the golden apple, the prize  of beauty that led to the war and  woes of Ilium; and where the gods  gathered to watch the embattled  Greeks and Trojans.  Farther along stood A bydos and  Sestos, facing each other on the  mile-wide strait that Leandcr swam  once too often to meet his sweetheart  Hero, who found his body on the  shore. Thither, in 334 B.

Many  professional  so-called  comic  opera companies   have visited the  city whose performances  have   not.  been as meritorioue as the one presented  by  our own   people.     The  bouse was crowded, all the available  standing room being taken   early in  tbe  evening.    All  those  who took  part in the entertainment  acquitted  themselves  in    a   most   creditable  manner.    There is censure for none,  but praise for all.    E. F, Laws, who  trained  the   performers, and  under  whose  personal   direction   "In Gay  Bohemia" was   presented,   deserves  an extra plaudit for the   thoroughness of Jis work   and    the   pleasing  manner in which the play- was   rendered.

There also,  in 1355, the Turkish torrent poured  across into Europe.  "The sea! Ths sea!" cried the  Greeks who, under Xenopben, bad  reireated from Persia, and wbo at  last bad reached the "Pontus  Euxinus," the "hospitable sea," as  the Greeks euphemistically called  the Black Sea.  Not less grateful is the sight of  the Sea of Marmoja to the Knglish  and the French as they leave the  demolished forts of the Dardanelles  behind them.  Payment of War Tax  The post office  department, having given notice a week or two ago,in  connection with the war revenue act,  that all letters'and postcards mailed  in Canada for  delivery  in Canada,  the United  States or Mexico, and  letters   mailed   in Canada  for  delivery in the   United   Kingdom and  British   possessions     generally,    or  wherever the two-cent rate  applied,  should in addition to ordinary postage carry a one-cent stamp as a war  tax,   and   also   having notified the  public that such  war  tax, while it  should be paid   preferably   by    tbe  postage   stamp   marked 'war tax,"  could, if such stamps were not available, be __ paid   by an ordinary one-  cent postage stamp, is now   issuing  further notice to the effect that postage stamps may be used for the prepayment of   war   duties   on   bank  cheques,    bills   of   exchange,    promissory notes, express money orders,  proprietary   or   patent    medicines,  perfumery, wines or  champagne, as  well as upon letters and  po=t cards,  postal notes and  post  office money  orders, the intention being   to   provide   facilities   in   those portions of  the country where excise stamps are  not readily available.    This in  view  of the fact that postage stamps   may  be  obtained   at  all points over the  whole   country,   in   many    places  where there is no collector of inland  revenue   and    no   inland    revenue  stamps could be obtained, is a  distinct convenience to the public, and  no Joubt will   be largely taken   advantage.

C.  General French  a Good Soldier  Field  Marshal is a:Master of Modern  V Military  Tactics  Some years ago elaborate manoeuvres were held at Altlershot; in  England. The regular war correspondent of a .London paper was invalided at the time* A greenhorn was  sent clown to cover the review.  "I was in despair," lie said later.  "( know nothing of military affairs,  but' if was essential that l" succeed  ���������with  tbat assignment.'' *    '���������  By some chance he foil in with a  spare, dumpy, red faced, old gentleman. Tho old gentleman didn't look  like a. soldier. Jle wore no uniform,  lie didn't even carry a stick. I-Je was  leaning against a fence when the despairing correspondent' encountered  him.  , SEE THE COCKSHUTT AGENT,  GET ONE TO CLEAN ALL THE WILD OATS OUT OF YOUR WHEAT  en  Desire to Climb is Natural  C. P; R. Improvements  "What,'' asked that individual, pile-  ously, "are they doing, now?"  The    old   gentleman 'discovered the  ���������    youngster's plight.    Then lie said he  .thought' lie could help him.  "[ know more or less ahoul this  sort of thing," said he, modestly.  "Beastly technical, you know. Perhaps  you'd better take rather careful  .notes."  So the boy took careful notes,-and  the old gentleman told him all about  the manoeuvres. That report made a  war correspondent out of a previously  harmless reporter. He's over in  France now,"dodging arrest and bullets. . When he'said goodby he diffidently expressed his  thanks.  "Will you tell me your name?" he  asked.  "O, French," said the other carelessly���������"Sir John French."  French is now the field marshal in  command of the English forces in  France. He conducted a retreat following the disaster of Moms which  has been called by critics one of the  finest feats of arms in the history or  ���������British arms.  1-Je has been named as .the foremost  cavalry leader in Europe. 'He was the  one British general whose reputation  was enhanced by the war in South  Africa. /  He   was   uniofrmly successful.    No  one,  perhaps, except  the    men most  intimately  concerned,   know  whether  there was over any personal hostility  between French and Kitchener.    But  the injudicious friends of both kicked  up  a mighty  shindy.    They insisted  upon comparing the record   made by  the two men in Africa.    French had  many victorious   battles to his credit.  It     was  pointed  out  that Kitchener  only laid claim to one���������that being the  defeat of Cronje���������and  that he would  not have Avon  this fight if French's  .'1,000   cavalry���������men   and    horses   exhausted   by  fantastic   exertions���������liad  not come up from. Kimberly in time  to arrest Cronje's'retreat.  ^ Whatever may be  the -truth,  it is  certain that the two men have worked well in double harness since  the  present war began.   French had been  made Field Marshal 24 hours before  Kitchener took the portfolio of Secretary of State for War. Kitchener lias  repeatedly given praise to his subor-  inate    for    his service    in the field.  French has had no opportunity to be  equally generous in public.    But   not  long ago a staff officer is said to have  complanied to him that certain men  and'supplies which were solely needed had not yet arrived  Canadian ���������Soldier  is a  Queer Animal  to the  Englishman  ''To 'the average - Englishman,   the  Canadian volunteer is a very sliange  animal,  indeed,"  writes Lieut. Wine-  gard, formerly of the Daily IVLail staff,  and  no.w  with the  Canadian contingent at Salisbury,:to a friend in Montreal.     "That: he   drinks ��������� his   whisky  'straight,' spends his month's pay in a  night, and is truly proud  if the fact  that he was born in Canada, are only  a few  things  that make  him an  unanswerable riddle to soldier and civil  ian alike  on  tins  side of  the  water.  "And so it has come to pass that,  failing   to  comprehend,  tlife   ISnglish-  man merely smiles his/lack of appreciation and makes the comment that,  to  him,  covers our sins and virtues  alike���������'He's a  Canadian.'  "This' extremely logical  conclusion  I wiLh regard to the men from Canada  was only arrived at after a, long and  sincere effort to reach the truth out  now it appears to tatisfy all concerned���������-ourselves most.of all.  "When 1 say that the Englishman  gave us up only after a\ sincere effort  to know why we did as we did���������or  didn'F do as he did���������I know whereof  I speak. But the Englishman made a  .fatal mistake when we first landed  in this country. He tried to.'kid' us.  actually endeavored to beat us at our  own game! And the result left him  a sadder though probably not a,,wiser  man.  "Having learned that Canadians  thought the Englishman entirely ignorant of our country, they just "'kidded us on this point Peoph? asked  for- stories of dark forests and treacherous Indians���������and got them. Instead  of the indignant protests and explanations they expected, they were fed  with stories of the forest primeval  that made their hair stand on end.

Ehler, of the University of Wisconsin.  ���������The-value of this instinct to climb  is further shown'by the great pleasure of the child in; climbing about  .structures under construction, upon  the roofs of buildings, into trees, leading later to the climbing of ropes and  the uso of suspended ring;; and bars.  Certain groups of muscles and ligaments that are essential parts of the  mechanism maintaining tho upright  position can -secure no adequate natural exercise except through the practice  of these climbing movements.  Firrtherniore, these activities afford  the only means whereby courage and  confidence may be developedand fear  and cowardice be prevented in situations involving unsteady support or  elevation above the ground. These activities, therefore^ are of vital importance in laying a \surc foundation for  the child's later physical and mental  and moral efficiency, and they should  bes encouraged and promoted. - They  are usually diseou.'-ag.-cl and'prevented'.

Better, even, a  broken neck and death in infancy ur  childhood .ban a spirit with a 'veilow  streak."  They are not due for two days,"  said French. "Then they will be here.  Kitchener is seeing to it."  French isn't at all the sort of man  in appearance one expects a cavalry  leader to be. He is short and squat  in figure: His seat upon a horse has  been called absolutely ludicrous, although it is considered that few  horses can master him.  ; He is a quiet, unassuming man, who  rarely speaks until he is spoken to,  unless among friends. Then he is a  most excellent companion.  For all his kindness and his diffidence he is hard as nails when duty is  in question. He does not excuse In-  competence or slackness. One of his  Tommies once put the. case very neatly-  "Ole French," said ho, "don't bark  much���������but doesn't he just bite!"  French is 03 years old now. Pie  comes of an -old Gajway family. His  father had been a commander in the  Royal Navy, and French" himself  served four years in it. But the service never appealed to him, and after  a time he retired and made a try for  the army. The competitive examinations kept him out of a -ommission  and so he got in "through the back  door"���������by taking a commission in the  militia and obtaining a transfer. His  promotion was reasonably rapid.���������  Herbert Corey.  To Insure Personal Effects on Ships  The London board of trade has prepared a scheme to insure the effects  of officers and captains in the mercantile marine avIio have suffered  heavy personal losses owing to seizure. The plan is that the state issue  policies at u premium of four per  cent, per annum; that each policy  should be issued for six months and  that the maximum r.um to be insured  ho ������75 for captains, ������50 for officers  and pro rata rates for engineers, seamen and firemen,  ada's largest city  "No,' it's mostly woods yet,' replied  the "-Canadian, . 'but we make little  clearings for the missionaries and  manage to live by shooting -an occasional pole cat. The only thing I  .don't like, about England is that they  make us wear clothes. Besides���������' But  the Englishman had fled. He would  not try to kid any more Colonials.  "This was the first effort made���������  this and similiar attempts���������to understand the Canadian. More kindly efforts at a later-date met with no less  discouraging results, as the story: of  a well known 'Varsity man and footballer will "show- '  "Invited by some friends who have  lived in Canada to meet some 'interesting Canadians' at Christmas dinner  a very well intending- but somewhat  patronizing maiden lady engaged the  'Varsity man in intelligent conversation. She learned that all Canadians  worked their wa; through college,  and turning suddenly to the Toronto  man (whose father - is a millionaire  several times over), asked him what  he did in. the summer.   ���������r  "Only for an instant did the Canadian flounder���������and then���������Oh, I work  in a circus���������travel from Quebec clear  .through to the coast.'  " 'How interesting,' said the lady,  not observing that everybody in the  room was hanging on her words, 'and  exactly what do you  do?'  "'Water the camels,' the 'Varsity  man told her solemnly, amid dead  silence. Then, as an afterthought  'and beastly thirsty things they are,  -too.* ,������������������;���������;..���������.���������::.- ������������������--'  "And so, while -'He's a Canadian' is  the only answer to the riddle of the  volunteer from our country, we are  accepted with all our faults and welcomed everywhere. In the towns and  cities .and among, the English regiments we are given the hand of goo-d  fellowship, while our_jnany eccentricities are taken as" a matter of  course.  "We are Canadians, and the very  Maple Leafs on our caps that makes a  Colonel help a bugler out of a scrape  has taught us what that means. Perhaps we did not fully realize it in our  own country, but the 'Hullo, Canadian!' with which we hail all wearers  of the Maple Leaf out here, helps us  to understand. And the more we understand the more puzzled our English comrade becomes.  U.  S.

These, figures include that portion of  the Kettle Valley - from Midway to  iUerritt which we will probably operate under lease during the coming  summer. In the same period we have  taken over for operation 789' miles  of second track, and have completely  rebuilt the lines between MacLeod and  Lethbridge and between Field ��������� and  Hector. -    -  Practically every terminal we have  lias beeu rebuilt, including Vancouver.  A new terminal has been built at  Transcona, and a double track cut-off  constructed around the city of Winnipeg.- We have buijt very-large high  level bridges at Lethbridge and Edmonton, and have built new-passenger  stations at many points, notably Fort  William. Rcgina, Calgary, Edmonton,  Banff, Lake Louise and Vancouver.  The Ogden shops have been built and J  new hotels constructed at Calgary and  Balfour, and extensive additions made  at Banff, Lake Louise, Winnipeg and  Vancouver.

He was victorious in" tlie battle of  Falkirk; but the Duke of Cumberland  son of George II., having been recalled  from the continent to take command  of the king's forces, the Pretender was  entirely defeated at Cullodcn Moor, a  plain in Scotland, four mile-, from Inverness. ' This was the last battle  fought on the island of Great Britain  (April 10, 1740). and it was also the  last attempt on the part of the Stuart  family to recover the throne of Great  Britain.  Charles Edward Stuart escaped to  France, after he had wandered for five  .months in the Highlands, pursued by  his enemies. He died in Rome, Jan.  30, 1788.  The Duke of Cumberland gave no  quarter. The wounded were all slain;  and the jails of England we're filled  with prisoners, many ofSvhom were  executed.

War Destroying -Horses  Descended from the "great horses"  used-in wars when armored knights  required animals of weight and power  to carry their heavy accoutrements,  the Boulonnaise draughter is one of  the old and valued breeds threatened  with extermination by the war in Europe. As indicated by its name, the  Boulonnaise horse, is raised in the  district about Boulogne, including the  departments of Nor.l, the Lorame and  the Pas de Calais and extending to  the frontier of Belgium. Henry IV.  had such a preference for these  horses that as long ago as 1587 he  took measures to improve Lie breed  and cultivate their speeu, presumably  at the trotting gait. Since then they  have been crossed with the Flanders  horse, or Belgian draughter, and have  become a breed of draughters even'  larger than the Percherons and more  active. Some of them-can, it is said,  trot a mile in live minutes or better.

COUNT ZEPPELIN'S SINISTER LESSON OF HATRED  How Hatred of the English has Permeated the Ruling Glasses  of  Germany, and how Plans were made   for Germanizing  Great Britain  as  well as  America  A complete model of the city . of  London with parks, public buildings,  cathedral -and abbey all represented  in miniature and overhead a ileet of  model Zeppelins from which now and  then Toy bombs dropped, at,the instigation of two little Germau -princes,  who wero thus amusing themselves  in a game that has since become the  eport of all,Europe���������the"game of war  ������������������was thp"sight-that greete I the English governess who had just arrived  at tho royal household to take up her  duties. It was a sight'that in other  circumstances might have been don-  sidered innocent of any motive than  merely to amuse, .but behind their  childish play, and perhaps as yet-unknown to themselves, there was a  more sinister meaning. It was tlie  young prince's first lesson of hate  for Britain, and at revealed, as many  tilings have sin'ce^made clearer, how  deep was the feeling inspired in German breasts against this country, and  how they have been taught to look  .���������-forward to "the day" when Britain  would'die at the-feet of Germany, a  crushed and conquered ��������� nation. This  and other facts are vividly" brought  home-' to us in a remarkable - book  which has just been published by  Messrs. Chapman and Hall, London,  under the title of "What I Found Out  in the House .of a" German .Prince."  It is from the pen of a young English-"  woman of good birth, who, through  her American connections and the influence of Prince Henry of Prussia,  was, In 1909, offered the post of English governess to two little princes,  aged five and six years respective!}-,  sons of a Royal German house. For  obvious reasons the author conceals  her own name and identity of her employers, but her revelations are none  the less clear and convincing because  oFthat.  It was to a palace on the Rhine that  she was sent to make-the acquaintance of her charges. When she arrived there the little princes were  playing in the garden-house; and the  wild shriek that came across the lawn,  suggested a game of unusual attraction. If was a strange sight, however,  which greeted the eyes of the English  governess. Spread-out upon the floor  was acomplete/iriodcl of the city of  London; parks, public buildings, cathedral, abbey, all represented in miniature, while over the towers floated a  fleet of model Zeppelins, which the  children were manoeuvring with remarkable skill. "Worse than ever!"  ��������� cried a man's voice. "Never waste  time or material. Now watch again  the way I do it. I am over Westminster Abbey." It was a young Prussian  lieutenant who was supervising the  .eport, and the- object was .to drop toy  bombs upon the principal-^-buildings  of the British metropolis. Lieutenant,  von X was somewhat taken aback  by the presence of an unexpected  spectator, but hastened to assure her  that this was merely an innocent war  game, presented to the princes by the  inventor, Count Zeppelin. But a few  hours' experience proved that the  spirit which,lay behind the game was  by no means so guileless or inoffensive. The children had been taught  from the cradle to detest the English  as their natural enemies, and the old  Scottish housekeeper, who soon made  friends with the author, was under no  illusions as to the sinister intent of  this' warlike sport. Indeed, the  young lieutenant had been frankly engaged upon the premises to keep a  military spirit afire in the breasts of  the children.  ; A visit from the Kaiser soon followed,, and to him the English governess  was duly presented. He said in his  quizzical way: "I hope you are not  English enough to be u suffragette,  Miss ������������������?" adding: "All these modern Englishwomen are suffragettes.  Well, .we should show them what we  think of them if they sent a deputation here.    But    while they confine  themselves to Iheir own soil we can  bless them. They are sowing good  seed for us to reap." The Kaiser chaffed the governess that she would  write-the inevitable book about Germany. "All that 1 ask is that you  stick- to the truth," he said. "Then we  have" not much to be afraid of. We"  Germans are tlie sincerest people in  the world, yet the strange thing is  that "no outsiders ever understand  us. ��������� That is why they cannot do us  justice in their books and articles,  even when they wish to, which is not  often, for tliey are jealous , of ^our  success. , Even you in England and  the United "States are "jealous. Too  many, books have been "written about  me by malicious people. Some of  'thorn were women'; I am sick of it."  With a-meaning smile he took his  leave, and a few minutes later the  Scottish housekeeper revealed the  secret that tlie engagement of an  English governess had been endrely  the Kaiser's plan. It w.'w not a  pleasant suggestion, but the author  tried to reassure herself. "At any  rate, I am glad," she said, "that the  Kaiser values us as a nation."  "Pie   doesn't   do' anything   of .the  sort," 1. was assured by Mrs. M -.  "You mark my words, all that the  German Kaiser and his sons (and  their, set which our prince is in) like  about the British nation is what it  has got. You don't understand now.  But wait till this time next year.  Then' come and tell me whether I'm  right or wrong." Alas! .that far-seeing Scotswoman died before she coula  witness the fulfilment of her prophecy! Meanwhile, little by little,, the  net of intrigue began to-close around  the exile. She soon learnt that it was  prudent to insist rather upon her  American than her British origin; Tor  wherever she went the absorbing hatred of England wa3 the theme of universal conversation. And she saw  and heard more than her hosts had  bargained,for. To the castle of the  prince and princess came, besides  the Kaiser, many notable Germans���������  the Crown Prince, Count Zeppelin,  General Bernhardi, and others. The  English governess saw something of  them all and heard more, especially  from her sprightly mistress, the Prin-  ceas. A vague feeling that great  men���������including the new Herr Krupp,  who married the old Herr Krupp's  daughter and took his name���������did not  come and go for.nothing, that something great was being planned, is natural. At Krupp's work's she heard  whispers of the wonderful "surprise"  that was in preparation for their year  of jubilee, and curious questions were  continually put to herewith regard to  the English resources and provisions  of war. Count Bernhardi, indeed,  when he visited the house, made no  secret, even to the children, of the  military ambition of his country.  From the young lieutenant, "whose  indiscretion seems to have got the  better of him, the governess learned  that the German army as well as the  navy prayed for "The Bay." America,  too, eventually, must become Germanized, as Lieutenant von X������������������ believed she'was already well, on the way  to be with her growing German population, immense German financial  interests, and influential newspapers.  The plans for American conquest  were already mapped out .by the German war office, who never left anything to chance.  By the end of last summer the  governess had come to realize that  she was in a head centre of German  national activity. tShe.. wondered if  she ought not to communicate such  lights as she had gained to her  own country. She did write a letter  to the British ambassador in Berlin.  It was intercepted on the very eve  of war, and she had to fly Germany,  which she managed to do, thanks to  her perfect knowledge of the language and an old\American passport.  Outlook is Good  -.. In the West  Orders in Return for Gifts  Britain is Deeply Grateful For Giv-  Ings of Canadian People  Secretary Griffith of the high  commissioner's office in London stated that the local authorities of Great  Britain and Ireland have passed a  resolution officially thanking the  Canadian government for the magnificent gifts it has made to the old  country on behalf of the Canadian  people.  Local committees concerned in the  distribution of food desire to place  on record that these gifts have  proved of incalculable value, enabling them to meet the demands  made upon them in no unstinted  fashion.  . Further orders have been given to  Canada by large wholesale houses  of London and the provinces. Secretary Griffith says that the aggregate  volume of trade placed by Great  Britain with Canadian houses is far  greater than is generally suspected.  Not only should these orders relieve  the temporary stagnation to Canadian industries, but in the event of  the goods being up to standard there  is every reason to believe a permanent connection will be th j outcome.

He also sa.w a  silver lining in tho depression .cloud  ���������namely, the putting to an end of  the wild-cat speculation in land, not  only 4'or the present, but for a, long  time ahead. He pointed out that the  acreage prepared for crop this year  would be 15 per cent, above-any other  year.  Dr. S. F. Tolmic', Dominion governmental chief veterinary inspector  in British Columbia, reviewed stock  conditions'' in that province. The  buying stimulated trade for a certain  class of horse, but he could see no  better prices coming. . Dairy cow  trade was very active, with $130 being paid for grader. Beef cattle had  dropped slightly. I-Ic pointed out  the startling fact that British Columbia last year imported 70,000 sheep  from "Washington state. '" British' Columbia, he said, was not producing  the sheep it should produce. The  consumption of-meat in the province  had decreased 25 per cent, during  recent Mine. ���������  Considerable time -was devoted to a  discussion of the "association" cars  which .the various live stock associations procure for the shipment of  pure bred stock. The association  wants the. regulations amended so  ,that more than one man can travel  with 'a car. It was declared that it  was impossible ofr one man to do the  work. There- is a deficit of $418 on  the cars last year, and to me.et this  it was decided to ask the various- associations to levy a tax of 10-cents  on each of their members. The assoc-  ition also wants a veterinary to  examine all cattle which are shipped.  Colonel McRae declared lhat it was  a bad lime to ask the railways for  anything.

The factory of John A. Roebling Co.,  of Trenton, New Jersey, was burned  by an incendiary while the company  .was completing- an order for barbed  wire for the French government.  Pie adds that following as this does  upon the outrages at sea���������the mutiny  upon the first American Red Cross  ship,' the destruction by burning of  several hundred cavalry horses  bought for the British army and at  sea two days out from Baltimore, the  destruction of Italian army horses,  and the stranding at Bermuda'of an  Italian vessel���������ope:.s up the grave  question of the danger of employing  Germans or German sympathizers af  all in connection, with the numerous  and important contracts for supplies  for the allies.  An even more startling fact than  the Roehling fire is the assertion that  German spies are interferring with  cable communication. "Much," lie  says, "is done under the guise of alleged censorship, which is purely malicious interference, without any reason to justify it. During , the past  week, out of sixteen prepaid cable  mesages sent from New Yjrk by  friends of mine to England, nine were  delivered and seven fell by the way.  Yet all referred to supplies and foodstuffs to be furnished to the allies.  The hand of the German spy in this  work is evident but hoAv to catch him  is the problem."  Two little girls who played together a great deal had an altercation one  morning. Both had told Blanche  what she called "a little fib."  "A fib is the same thing as a.story,"  explained Blanche, "and a story is the  same thing as a lie."  "No," argued Beth, "if.;-not." '  "Yes, it "is," insisted Blanche, "because my father said so, and my  father is professor at the college, and  he knows everything."  "I don't care if he is a professor,"  said Beth. "My father is a real estate  man and he knows a lot more about  lying  than  your father."  NAL SETTL.  INDEMNITIES TO ALL THOSE WHO HAVE SUFFERED  The more Germany keeps Destroying the more Crushing shall be  Her National Debt, when the Inevitable time Arrives  for her  to Effect  a Settlement  While these lines are being written  the tide of German success may be  turning, turning to a national.. and  dynastic disaster, iinparalled in modern history, but reserved, self inflicted, if any people's ruin "was, by the  spirit and the methods adopted by a  nation's chosen rulers and favored instructors.  Germany has fought Western Europe by foul means as well as fair; by  floating, drifting mines that for the  most part damage neutrals or non-  combatants; by printed and whispered lies sedulously circulated among  the distant, the impressionable, and  the easily- guiled; by blackmail  ("Either you stump up millions of  pounds or I efface for ever the historical beauty and interest of your  land"); by terror and a Satanic appeal to human pity���������the terror caused  by Red Indian atrocities, Turkisn-  massacres of non-combatants, and tlie  shameful trading on pity by using revered and aged men, women, priests  and- children as bodyshields; by  dressing in the uniform of the foe;  by posing as Red Cross officers; by  hoisting'the white flag to lure honest  soldiers into the death zone.  While no British, French, Russian,  Belgian, Servian, Montenegrin, Indian, Japanese or North African soldiers will wish to vie with Prussian,  Mecklenburger, Silesian, Saxon or  Hanoverian in the abominable side oi  war; while German architecture, German museums, pictures, churches,  and other national achievements in  art and science are safe from the invading armies of the allies (save for  the unavoidable accidents of warfare) ; while it is virtually certain  that no German maid or matron will  'be outraged, no German priest orI  chemist shot or hacked to death, no ;  German child bayoneted, it is stilt  necessary that nothing recorded of  German wickedness should be forgotten, should remain unpaid for when  -the day of reckoning arrives.  Even the loss to the world of the  outer and inner beauty of Paris, the  cutting down of those trees which  cannot, be replaced in your or niy  lifetime���������middle aged or aged reader*!  ���������the far worse destruction of forest  loveliness which these human beasts  are' carrying, out round Brussels shall  be avenged, shall be imperfectly atoned for; not by robbing Germany or  her beauty���������none , of 'that!���������but by  money fines that shall reduce Germany for many years'to a wholesome  and penitential impotence.  Just as the Rothschilds in Buckinghamshire, by spending thousands of  pounds imparting to their estates-the f  sylvan loveliness of-neighboring.Hertfordshire, in that they conveyed thither elms of 50 years in growth and  planted them to suit the scenic effect;  so the groveo and parks of Paris am  of Brussels shall be made good by  German money. For every beauty in  architecture that Germany is now laying low with gunpowder and dynamite in Flanders .and Brabant, in the  Ligeois and Namurois and in Belgian  Luxemburg and the northeast of  France, she shall pay; pay for li>b  complete rebuilding and redecoration,  pay for restoration and a bit over.  The more she 'keeps destroying the  more crushing shall be her national  debt. She shall pay indemnities to  those who have.survived the" destruction of their homes in Belgium or in  France,' pay for the support of (he  widow, the parents, the children ot".  all whom her soldiers'' have barbarously and unjustly slain; pay for robbing tlie western world needlessly, inexcusably, of two years of happiness,  pay for the destruction of tourist carrying French railroads, for the interruption of our North Sea fishing industry, for the loss of every penny  occasioned by enforced idleness or  foreign imprisonment, for ; every ship  and life she has destroyed among our  fishing, folk and those of France and  Belgium.  And  none  will   press  more  mercilessly this demand for indemnification  than the former friends and advocates in this country, the men and .  women who sought fair play for Germany in the councilsof Great Britain; ���������  and obtained it, who desired that her  reasonable and justified ambitions  should be satisfied, and had secured  that adequate satisfaction some  months beforo this war brolte out.  But how is Germany to pay, some  will ask. She will soon be bankrupt,  even if by some perverse turn in the  wheel of fate she recovers . lost  ground in France and her unopposed  occupation of Belgium. Even her colonies are only worth so much, nothing near the ������100,000,000 she will bo  asked to pay to Belgium," the ������200,-  000,000 she will owe to France, ana  as yet uncalculated sum she will (in  addition, to her war fleet) be required  to make over to Britain and Russia.  Well, she will onlymeet. her obligations, which will have to be enfercr-d  by territorial occupation "on a large  scale, by a virtual revolution.  All the German states must go into  the melting pot, Prussia most and  first of all. The private estates of all  her rulers and princes���������first and foremost of the Hohenzollerns-���������must be  escheated by the revolutionary government and be applied to the redemption of Germau territory. If Germany likes to retain,,, after war is  over, her present, or something near  her present, territorial divisions and  dynasties she must allot to her  chosen princes, kings and emperor a .  reasonable civil list, payment for  value received. But all their private  estates, their vast domains, their  house treasures and trusts and concealed funds must beconio national s  property. /  Once Germany is purged of Prussia, once the Hohenzollerns are exiled on modest annuities, once she is  made a really democratic empire or  republic, "she will soon recover from  her woes���������as' soon, perhaps, as  Franco did after 1S71. But it will be  long before the treatment' of Belgium is forgotten, and Germany is  admitted to diplomatic relations and  equal brotherhood by~the states she  has wantonly injured. ;, Austria can  point to her as a ruin of the Austrian empire; and perhaps the only  separation she can make in that direction after the death of the Emperor Francis Joseph is the incorporation of all German speaking Austria  into a fully enfranchised German  realm. .  Russia must have the'fullest satisfaction and security she cares to demand, that the Bosphorus and Hellespont shall be no more a padlock on  her trade and enterprise and on the  world's need for Russian grain and  Russian oil. The least the western  world can do for her in return for  saving western civilization and restoring Poland to nationhood is to provide  her with that free access to the Mediterranean which is necessary to her  development. Belgium must have  territorial enlargement in several directions, France a Rhine frontier, the.  international character cf the Baltic  Sea must be secured for all its limitrophe nationalities.  And last, but not least, In the day  of reckoning Britain must see, shall  see, if the press can make her (for  politicians' memories are notoriously unretentive), that her soldiers and  sailors (the rank and file anU not only  the officers) are amply rewarded for  the efforts they have made and will  have made to secure for the British  empire" a, satisfactory and lasting  peace. They must be handsomely  paid for their time of war service and  be provided afterwards with lucrative  careers. We must and shall treat  them as the United States (laughed  at, at it was, In this land which then  let its soldiers die in the workhouse)  treated the veterans and the widows  and offspring of the fighters who reestablished the Union of the North  American republic���������Sir H. Johnston,  in London Chronicle.  Rambling Waggles���������I was robbed  last night, and I reckon that about  fifty-three articles were stolen from  me.   Everything I had in tho world.

Belgian Scholar Coming-  Ontario  Government  Has  Decided  to  Appoint  Commission  to   Mske  Full  Inquiry  The Ontario government has  taken action to have made a thorough  investigation of the nickel industry  in the province, with a view to having all nickel refined at home. Hon.  G. Howard Ferguson, minis'iex of  lands, forests and mines, has announced that in order to ascertain all  the facts and to acquire a full knowledge of the situation, it had been  decided to appoint a commission lo  investigate.  "If the report of the commission  makes clear the practicability of refining nickel in the province the necessary steps will be taken to see that  this is brought about," stated the  minister.  Tlie commission will have plenary  power to exhaust every possible  'course of information and to make a  careful study of every phase of the  situation.  "Up to the present the government  has not been convinced that any action preventing the export of nickel  would not have the effect of transferring the nickel business, or a substantial part of it, from Ontario to  New Caledonia, Norway or elsewhere,", .stated the Hon. Mr. Ferguson. "Up to the present there does  not appear to have been any known  process of refining the Sudbury copper-nickel matte that would have  permitted of the operation being a  commercial and economic success in  Ontario.  "It is in order fo ascertain all the  facts that this commission is being  appointed."
