Brewster, Liberal leader, drew attention to tbe fact by reading from the Nelson News. The headline was  to the effect that Brewster was opposing the giviug of land to soldiers.  During the discussion of the land question Mr. Brewster and tbe  other members of th? opposition have made it very plain that they favor  giving land to soldiers, aiding them in every manner possible. In fact,  the new government land bill was suggested by Mr. Brewster months ago  and as late as the day before the government determinad to bring such a  measure to the house, fully realizing that tbe people were demanding that  the speculator be made to pay up and that the government declare itself  witb regard to what it would, do for the men who would come back from  the front.  Although the government scheme in principle.is along the lines of  Mr. Brewster's suggestion, it is, as has been stated before, designed also to  make it very easy for the land speculator while at the same time offering  a measure of aid in the w,ry of a piece of ground to the returiied soldiers.

THE    SUN,    GRAND    FORKS,    B.C.  A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  \0 CENTS FEB PLUG  Turks Begin Move  for Separate Peace  Reported  . to    be  Co-bperating   With  Certain  Diplomats in Switzerland  According to a Geneva report printed by Le Temps, in Paris, the heir to  the Ottoman throne, supported by  numerous Turkish officers., has begun  a movement for a separate peace, cooperating with certain diplomats now  in Switzerland, including a former  ���������Ambassador to Paris and Naby B,ey.  ���������/he Swiss papers say Germany is  encouraging the separate peace movement because she is unable to bear  the strain of financing Turkey.  The former Turkish ambassador to  France and Naby Bey, as well - as  several other Turkish diplomats...who  are in Switzerland at: the present  time, are said to be co-operating with  the Turkish heir in the separate p.eace  movement.  The Milan Gazette Popolo prints a  Constantinople me's'sage which says  the Old Turks and the Young Turks  are holding, secret meetings'. with the  object of forcing a separate peace.  The recent drafting of 50,000 German  troops at Constantinople is designed  to overawe the restless population.  Playgrounds For  Rural Schools  Complete    Playground   Apparatus  for  Country Schools at a Small  Expense  Fifty dollars will cover the expense  of a complete playground apparatus  for a school teacher and the pupils  render a reasonable amount of assistance in building it.      ���������  Teeter boards, standards, giant  strides, a turning pole, swings and  slides, are practlcai pieces of apparatus, all suitable for the school yard.  Timbers for frame work should be  set in concrete so that the structure  may be more solid and durable.  The teeter board can be made by  using an ordinary saw horse for the  supporting   frame, and fastening the  Fearless, But Dread Gas  Ghurkas Push Aside German Bayonets  With  Bare  Hands  Describing the fighting-equalities of  the Ghurkas, H. C. Raskin, a Detroit  soldier, who has been invalided from  the front, says: *  The Ghurkas are absolutely fearless  in a charge, but they are not put in  the trenches any more. In a charge  the}' throw away their guns and advance . with nothing but their long,  deadly knives. They reach out their  bare black left hands and push, the  German bayonets away while with  their; right they stab and stab and  stab with the brutal knives until man  and bayonet fall together. Thfir arms  are full of healed welts caused by  pushing.bayonets aside with their  naked arms. They have no fear of t'.e  bayonet or bullet, but they go crazy  when they meet the gas. They cannot understand the gas. They think  devil spirits .are after them.  On one occasion word was received  that a German ammunition train, was  six miles back of the German lines.  Recruits Avere called for to make an  attempt to, blow it up. It was a forlorn hope and we never expected to  see them again. But they did not fail.  The Ghurkas are as steady in their  movements as our. American Indians  and they crossed three lines of German trenches through ponds that had  been dammed up between the sections, each man swimming under water with his knife in his' teeth. They  blew up the ammunition train and  they came back���������all six of them.  the improved mating.  Of course, it must be understood,  that it is fully assumed that all birds  are in the best of health. Otherwise  they have no place in any mating.  More good clucks at the end of the  season will be the result, of a' little  extra though t in making the matings  followed up, of course; with the best  of care  and growing of  the  birds.  Moving to Town  Careful Mating  By A. P. Marshall, Niagara Falls, Can-  - ada,   Breeder Niagradot  White  Wyandottes  We wonder how many can tell  whether they-'have made proper matings or not the previous year or can  see any real reasons why certain  things developed in the youngsters  that were not expected. Do most  breeders just pick out their best looking birds and put them together, trusting to  luck for tlie  coveted    young  board.to "it with a large strap hinge, j st6ck that they wish, to produce? Per  Ihe giant stride is created by mount-;haps a g00d deal of^e work of mat.  ing a-wagon skein on top of the pole  to be used, then a smaii wagon wheel  is placed upon it. Ropeo long enough  to reach the ground are tied to the  rim of the wheel. A satisfactory size  for the turning pole is from orie-and-  three-fourths to two inches in diameter. The slide is a shallow trough constructed of a close grained wood such  as maple or birch, worked smooth inside.  In the list of apparatus there should  be included a good supply of baseballs.!  and bats. The playground ball is es-'  pecially good for games, because it is  large enough to be easily found when  lost, and it is so sor". that there is jiot  much danger of even the smallest  children receiving serious injury. It is  not expensive and will last many  weeks if the children will take the  trouble to sew it when ripped. The  teacher should have a goodly number  of games suitable for all grades of  children, and the children should be  organized into groups so that they all  may-have a chance to play.  Playgrounds for rural schools have  ben most successful abroad. Why not  in America? The cities have them.  Have not the country boy and girl'an  equal right to play?  Butter From Saskatchewan  Shipments of butter from Saskatchewan to points outside the province  last year totalled 52 carloads, according to a statement made by the dairy  commissioner at the annual convention of the Saskatchewan Dairymen's  association. This is a great change  from recent conditions when Saskatchewan was an importer of butter for  its own needs, but the commissioner  says the industry is just in its infancy  as there is an unlimited export market. Under the careful government  supervision, under which creamery  butter is produced in the province,  Saskatchewan butter has attained an  excellent quality which has been  shown by the preference accorded it  on  outside markets.  Leaden Water Pipes  Tn 1251; lead r-ipc began to be used  for  carryiiiK water.  Has been Canada's  favorite yeast for  more than forty  years.  Enough for 5c. to  produce 50 large  loaves of fine,  wholesome nourishing home made bread. Do  not experiment, there is nothing  just as good.  ing can be voiced in the foregoing sen  tence, but there is absolutely no question that will not briug always the  desired result. Two birds of inferior  merit.with good blood lines properly  mated may produce much better than  two better birds that are not at all  suitable to each other.  Just what one might do or advise is  very hard to know unless the available  stock to mate up can be gone over.  In a different flock somewhat different  lines might be adopted and yet each  although different might be the best in  their respective cases. Everyone has  the Standard of Perfection as a guide  or if they have not they should have.  Even for the .'producing of market  poultry or producers of greater quantities of eggs careful mating will help  materially. With a fixed ideal in mind  and remembering that size and shape  ' are very much imparted by the female  and style and color by the male, birds  may be brought together, the one to  offset the known faults of the other.  The nearer alike these birds and their  blood lines are the more nearly alike  will their offspring be. This is-why  line-breeding is so much practised, for  where the lines are similar they coincide or "nick" and reproduce their  like. All definite forms or charts for  indefinite breeding without using out-  crosses invites that style of breeding  keeping lines for new blood distinct  from all the other lines in the "flock.  This, of course, is a very big subject  and one that invites considerable difference of opinion simply because one  fails with.it while the other is successful. But outside of this entirely  and whether one practises line-breading .or not, much can be done to improve results when tlie actual mating  is done at the beginning of the breeding season.  Just how carefully the selection of  the breeding pens is made at this time  will determine the results showing in  the chicks next fall. Vitality is such  an essential thing that one is tempted  to say that having this will insure  good results and so it will as far as it  Without it satisfactory results  The    Retired   Farmer is  Not Always  Contented in His New Surround-'  . ."''   ings ��������� ���������'''���������'������������������  Every spring in almost every section of the country there is an exodus  of middle aged and elderly farmers  from the farm to the little towns���������a  sort rof counter movement to the back  to the land migration of town folks.  We have investigated many of these  exchanges of the farm for the town,  and we are convinced that in most  cases the initiative has been taken by  the wife, the husband acquiescing  willingly or grudgingly as his interest  in his farm home was slight or deep  rooted.  But why do farmers want to sell or  rent their farms, give up the habits of  a lifetime and move into a cramped  house in the town? Doubtless in a  majority of instances the answer  would be that the difficulty of obtaining help indoors and out, and the consequent hard work entailed upon the  farm owner, make the change desirable or imperative. Then there are  the wife and daughters longing for a  little more liveliness and excitement;  but at the bottom of it all is that  restlessness and air impelling desire  for a change which attacks every man  when he has reached middle life. If  one is able to withstand the disease  for a few years, he is likely to find  his familiar environment take on new  -attractions. Just now in our neighborhood this insistent desire for a change  has gripped a number-of my neighbors, so hard that they are joining in  excursions to Florida, in the hope of  finding swamps, where, it is claimed,  summer is perpetual, the alligators  good company, the neighbors rich, refined and cultured, and where an assured and ample income is derived  from celery, asparagus, potatoes or  some other single crop to which the  land is alleged to be peculiarly well  adapted. Some of our neighbors who  have returned are full of enthusiasm,  while others, and these are the.more  observing and successful at home, see  nothing particularly inviting in the  Florida prospect.  What does a man who has lived and  worked on a farm for fifty years or  longer gain by moving to town and  engaging in the monotonous task of  kiling time?  gains leisure,  has time to get into the front line  whenever a. fire occurs and the engines are brought into play; but even  that novelty grows stale in time. He  has leisure to visit the court room  and witness the administration of justice, as it is displayed in the trial of  scores of trivial and petty cases; but  he soon finds that it adds little to his  contentment or satisfaction of mind,  and less to his income. And it is the'  paucity of his income that is a constant source of worry to himself and  his good wife. To get along on it at  all it is necessary to skimp and pare  and to sail close to the wind. What  would happen if the crops should  prove bad and the tenant default in  the payment of his rent, they dare not  think; and so they find eventually that  life in the town is not all it was to  their imagination as, they discussed  the prospect in the sitting room back  home, and that not even the privilege  of sitting on a store box in front of a  town dry goods store in the bright  spring weather, swapping,farm experiences with other "retireH" and marooned farmers, provides the entire  satisfaction it was supposed to.

In a  letter read at the annual convention  of the Society for the Propagation of  Christian Knowledge,  lie ,writes:  "Surely Almighty God does not la-  tend this war to be just a hideous  fracas. There ; must be purpose in  it; improvement 'must come out of  it. "In what direction? France has  already shown us the : way and.has  risen out of her ruined cities witha  revival of religion that is wonderful.  Russia has been welded into a whole,  and religion inlays a great part. Britain still remains to be taken out of  the stupor of self-satisfaction and  complacency into which her flourishing condition has steeped her.

Britain, where the liquor interests-  are more strongly entrenched, than in  Canada, has seen the beneficial results  of its restriction regarding the sale  liquor.; ./Liverpool, wnara the anti-  treating law has been strictly enforced, declares that the new regulations,  have/proved the virtual salvation of  the community, in sal'2; guarding the  families of the poor, and others, from  actual poverty.

With added sobriety.lias  come a ^remarkable increase in industry, and the authorities believe that  troubles with dock workers and other  classes will now be less frequent. The  hours for drinking in .Liverpool are  limited from noon each day to'2.80 p.m.  and from 6.30 to 9..'50 p.m. Outside  these hours it is impossible to buy  liquor in Liverpool.  The Liverpool regulations have  proved more successful than those of  London, simply because thoy have applied to rich and poor alike. In London they are aimed at the poor, and  not until this week did the authorities  close down on the'--'fashionable cafes  where dancing and drinking continued  into the early hours of the morning.

Working Young Horses  Great* Care   Must   be   Taken   Not  to  Overwork the Growing Animal  Some young horses of good size and  ���������strength can safely be worked at two  years.of age, if they are worked moderately and handled with care, and  judgment.  The writer has broken and worked I  two young horses at two years of age, j  and in both cases they turned1 out to  be splendid mature animals. Both  grew, and developed right along till  they were live years of age, but they  were handled wlth'-utmost care and  fed liberally.  It is not reasonable to expect a two-  year-old or a three-year-old horse to  do as..much won. as a mature animal.  Tho young horse must be given a  light load at first, and it must noft be  pushed to its limit during the first  working period of its young life. It  is best to work the young horse with  a strong and reliable older one, giving the younger one advantage over  the old. A stay chain should be used  on the older uorso so that he can  start the load and even pull, it by  himself in hard places. The load for  the team should never be excessively  heavy.  Another importan'. point in working  the young horse is to never work him  ?ull days at iirst, and never crowd  him to the point of fatigue, cspccially  on warm days. Do not try to worn  the life and vim out of the young  animal at iirst simply because he has  lifo and vim. Such is apt to ruin his  spirit and result in a stow or balky'  animal. You wish to preserve his  vim and spirit for later use.  And, by all means, feed the young  working animal liberally of a variety  to furnish energy for work and materials for the building of rich blood,  muscle, and bon \ Feed some oats,  corn,-wheat bran, and alfalfa or clover hay, with a little oil' meal. The  young animal must be built up in body  as he works and grows.  Duncan Campbell paid a visit to a  friend in Glasgow, who took him to  dine in a rather Bohemian restaurant.

Methods Used to Determine Whether  Wounded Soldiers Are Alive or  Dead  Three methods used in the rear of  the fighting lines by army surgeons to  determine in doubtful cases whether  a soldier wno has fallen is alive or  dead arc described in La Clinica JYIed-  ica Italiana, and discussed in the current number of the Medical Record,  The first of these is to drop ether into  the conjunctival sac of one eye. If  this is followed by a reddening of the  conjunctiva, it affords .proof that the  circulation is intact, and that life is  still present. The other eye is used  as a control. Tho second test has been  recently proposed by lcard. It consists  in the subcutaneous* injection of fluor-  escin, which, if the individual is still  living, is soon followed by a yellowish coloring of the skin and mucusa.  The conjunctiva and the mucous membrane of the mouth, and "particularly  the fremim of tho tongue, show this  coloration most distinctly. ' The test  consists in the injection of eight to  ten cubic centimeters of a solution of  20 grams of fluorescin and 30 grams  of sodium carbonate in 100 grams of  ���������distilled water. A negativo result is  obtained in cases of marked slowing  or enfeeblement of the circulation,  as during the agonal condition. The  third test has recently been proposed  by Halluin. It consists in the direct  exploration of the heart by means- of a  stilette. This is introduced throuogh  a small incision in one of the intercostal spaces. Any movement of the  heart is communicated to the stilette.  In some cases of suspended animation  it is possible to arouse cardiac activity by means of gentle movements of  the stilette, combined with artificial  respiration.���������Springfield     Republican.

Housing the Sheep  Contrary to general opinion, sheep  as well as any other class of farm  animals require clean, dry shelter. It  is especially important that the feet  and lleece be kept dry. If their quarters are dry and clean the sheep will  stand very cold weather without discomfort or disease. There must be  ample ventilation, for sheep if closely  crowded sweat badly and quickly use  up oxygen in the air, but there must  bo no drafts as sheep are very subject  to colds. In tlie ordinary climato the  sheep barn may be constructed of one  thickness of. matched boards. It  should be large enough to house the  entire flock without crowding. Windows enough to permit lots of sunshine to enter and clean, dry bedding  under foot are necessities. The lambing pens should bo of warmer construction than the general shed.

C.  FRIDAY, APRIL 7,  1910  W. J. H.  Manitoba I  in his Heliogram column   in   the  roe Press, indulges in  the . follow-  ijj- musings:  In the legislature a year ago today the  whitewashing report of the Iioblin majority of  the public accounts committee on the Kelly  contracts was brought in, and the government  inajorit}'' in the house lined up solidly to steam  roller it through. And a year ago today. Mr.  Hudson moved -the. resolution presenting, the  report of the Liberal minority- on the public  accounts committee. . . . And a year ago  tomorrow the tottering of Iioblin government,  before the crash of its downfall, began to become distinctly.audible to the whole Dominion  "It was a year ago today, while Mr. Johnson was speaking in the house against the  steam-rollering operations in the public accounts committee, that the cry 'Take your  medicine!' was raised on the government side.  . . . And over its report of the legislature  a Winnipeg newspaper, in headlines in poster  type, proclaimed: 'Complete Reply of Government to All Charges by Opposition���������Liberal Campaign of Insidious Mendacity���������Hudson's Deliberate Misleading of the Legislature.' . . . To make a few brief extracts  from only one of the several pieces of resounding Roblin government oratory set forth in  cold type under those headlines, the then premier said:  " 'The insinuation that witnesses have bgen  spirited away is absolutely^ untrue. . . .  Every statement my honorable friend (Mr.  Hudson) has made falls to the ground. He is  placed in the humiliating position of attempting to deceive the house and the country. .  . . Mr. Kelly came of his own accord, and  was at the public accounts committee, and  told then anything that was proper in connection with the contract. . . . If the leader  of the opposition was only fair, he might show  regret for his misstatements, for the wild and  extravagant language he used.'  "Those speeches, read today in the light of  the events of the past twelve months, are saddening stuff, and more conducive to thought  than most sermons."  There is more than a family resemblance between the proceedings a year ago in Winnipeg  and the events now taking place at Victoria.  The estimates pledging tlie province to an expenditure of two dollars for every dollar of  revenue have already been steam-rollered. The  whitewashing reports are booked to follow in  every case where the government is accused  of wrongdoing. The howl will soon be raised  that the government has completely replied to  every charge. Mr. Brewster and Mr. Mac-  donald will be accused of deliberately misleading the legislature and the public, All this  will happen just as in Manitoba. And then  the crash! The only difference is that the fate  which overtook Sir Kodmond Iioblin will be  much swifter in consigning Bowserism to political extinction.  penditure of $11,300,000.

Here's is the queerest entry in the earlyj  fishing-story contest: Eugene Schultz, 12,  while skating on Pock creek, near Tiffin, Ohio,  broke through the ice. He sank to the bottom, and, in his horror, clutched out wildly.  His hand grasped.a 21-pound black bass. He  was still holding it when the other boys rescued him.  If the furest fiifi danger were p-presented by a .line  rising and falling us llin d-inger increased or decreased  there would be a sharp rise or "peak" in the few weeks  fitter tire winter snow leaves the woods. This is so much  the case that the term .''spring fires" is well known to  every forester. The ground is dry, the dead leaves and  herbage are sapless and tindery, and the l.east spark  may start a fire that will sweep whole miles of forest.  All who go lo the woods are cautioned to se6 that they  are especially careful to put out completely th< ir camp  firesand to see that no tires start from mutches, pipes,  cigar stubs or-firearms..-.Canada has many fire guardians  on duty at ttiis season, but if these rules are observed  much more timber will be saved than can be saved  through the most strenuous efforts of fire fighters. The  time to stop-a furest fire is before it starts. Canada is  in a war that is taxing her resources, and every patriotic citizen will do all he can to prevent the enemy being helped by the destruction of Canadian resources.

What We Owe to the Farmers  Probably in no other part of tlie em-  piro have greater services been rendered to the cause of civilization during the past year than have, been  rendered by the farmers of Alberta.  This was the gist of the message of  greeting extended to the United Farmers of Alberta by Hon. James A.  Lougheed, minister without portfolio  in the Dominion cabinet, and with this  appreciation there will be general  agrosment. The farming class of Alberta has not only given hundreds of  men to the Canadian army that is now  on active service, but it has also produced the greatest crop that this province has known at a time when it was  most needed. Their services to the  empire has been of incalculable value,  and it is well understood that they  will continue to devote their best efforts to aid the cause of the entente  allies until the period of stress is ended.���������Calgary News-Telegram.  Year  of  Progress  Summed up as a twelvemonth of  achievement.for the prohibition cause,  the year 1914 takes a unique place.  All over Canada the agitation against  the liquor traffic awoke to renewed  life aud activity. Everywhere the better element in the community answered tlie call of duty. In every province  the stirring up of public sentiment to  fight against the great evil of the age  has been remarkable.���������Vancouver  World.  Minard's  theria.

He is more or less confined to stuffy, badly ventilated rooms.  It is so often stormy that the mother  does not get him out in the fresh- air  as often as she should. I-Ie catches  colds which racks his little system;  his stomach and bowels get out of  order and he .becomes peevish and  cross. To guard against this the  mother should keep a box of Baby's  Own Tablets in the house. They regulate the stomach and bowels and  break up colds. They are sold by  medicine dealers or by mail at 25  cents a box from The Dr. "Williams'*  Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

FOOD FACTS  What  an   M.D.   Learned  A prominent physician went  through a food experience which he  makes public:  "It'was my own experience that first  led uie to advocate Grape-Nuts food:  and t also know from having prescribed it to convalescents and other weak  patients that this food is a wonderful  rebuilder and restorer of nerve and  brain tissue, as weil as musclo. It improves the digestion and patients gain,  just- as [ did in strength and weight,  very rapidly.  "I was in such a low state that  I had to give up my work entirely and go to the mountains, but  two months there did not improve mo;  in fact I was not quite as well as  when I left home. My food did not.  sust'iin me and it became plain lhat I  must change.  "1 began lo use f!rape-Nuts and  In two weeks T could walk n mile,  and in live weeks 'relumed to my  home and practice, taking up hard  work again, Since that time I have  felt as well find strong as I ever did  in my I if,".  "As a physician who seeks to help  all sufferers I consider it a duty to  make these fuels public."

The.German arms have performed prodigies of valor, their trained  skill and efficiency has been the marvel of the world, but the failure lo  destroy the French armies and reach  Paris in the early weeks of the war  was doubtless fatal to their hopes.

When you call the doctor his first question refers to  the condition of the bowels, and his first medicine is  intended to ensure the activity of these organs.' "Whether  you have a cold or appendicitis, kidney disease or rheumatism, there are poisons in the system which must be  removed, and which would not have lingered to cause  trouble if the bowels had been healthful and active.  For this reason we claim that the First and Most  Important Rule of Health is "Daily Movement of th?  Bowels."  If the bowels can be kept in healthful action at all  times there is little need for either doctor or medicines,  and about nine-tenths of the annoying and dangerous ills  of life a.re avoided.  The ideal corrective treatment for the bowels is .Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. Not only because of their  promptness of action, but also because they immediately  arouse the sluggish liver, and by so doing cure constipation.  The bile which is filtered from the blood by an active  liver is Nature's cathartic, so if you can keep the livet-  right there will be no sluggishness in the action of the  bowels."

Si  THE  TALK ABOUT PEACE  AND WHAT IT  MEANS  The Future of the World for a Century to Come is Just as  at Stake in Settling the Terms of Peace as It is in  Winning the War  Much  The appeals for peace from neutral  countries, obviously inspired by Ger-  man.-Americans, German-Swiss or  other hyphenated patriots, is an un-  mistaakblo sign that Germany feels  her force is on the decline. That being so, it follows naturally tliat tlie  sooner she makes, or tries to make,  peace, the better leverage for bargaining sbe will have. On the other hand,  tho entente powers are just as anxious  for peace as Germany, but it must uu  peace on their terms. K the enemy  is not ready to accept these terms,  the war wm continue untu sue   .  The subject of peace term's is, therefore, of interest jusi now.    n m������)   ������tr  well to glance first at the terms Germany  anticipated  in   case  of  m  when she was in.the midst of her deliberate   preparations     j.wi-   luio    ������Ui.  They   were   published    aoout     seven  ���������years  ago in a French magazine,  in  ^ the form of a signed interview with  *��������� a prominent German official,    whose  name  was withheld  for obvious  reasons.    The  German stated    that his  countrymen had calculated the cost of  defeat on tho following basis:  The surrender of Met/, and Lorraine  to France.  The neutralization of Alsace.  The return of Schleswig-Holstcin, to  Denmark.  An indemnity of ?400,000,000 to  France.  Tho cession of the Kameruns and  Togland to France.  The cession of German East and  Southwest Africa to England.  The return of Heligoland to England.  The transfer of six German ironclads and twelve German cruisers to  England.  An indemnity of ?G00,000 to Russia.  Boundary rectifications in favor of  Russia.  It may now Ijo interesting to glance  at the tefms of peace in the event of a  German victory. They were published  shortly after the outbreak of _ the  war, and it was stated later that; owing to the "serious inconveniences" to  .��������� which the allies had put poor inoffensive German}*, thoy would probably be  made much more exacting when the  time came to formulate them officially. The reader will notice the difference between the two sets of terms.  The .following' represent the demands  of a victorious Germany:  The cession of all France's overseas  empire, amounting to 4,397,S26 square  miles, with a population of approximately 65,000,000.  The cession of north-eastern France,  \ . which includes some of the richest  iron districts in Central Europe, and  has numerous blast furnaces and iron  works. y  The demolition of all French forts  on that frontier.  The reduction of the French army  to 200,000  (from three million).  .The signing of a treaty of commerce on terms to be dictated by Germany.  The payment of an indemnity of  $4,000,000,000, Germany to practically  occupy the country until'two-thirds  had been paid in gold.  France to abandon Britain and Russia and sign an alliance with Germany  for  a period  of 25  years.  Those are only the terms to be demanded from France according to  Professor Hasekal. England was to  be occupied by German troops.and the  British overseas dominions were to be  taken over. Belgium was to be absorbed, together with her Congo territory in Africa. Poland was to be reestablished as a part of Austria. The  Russian Baltic provinces were to be  given up to Germany.  The German idea of war is not self-  defence but plunder, and this was  strikingly illustrated when Bismarck  visited London about half a century  ago. Kc remained silent practically  all the time he was being taken about  the priceless treasures of the museum  or the royal palaces or art galleries.  The historical associations of the venerable Tower of London left him unmoved. The exquisite haze that creeps  about the river during the long English twilight had no interest for him.  But when he had seen everything, he  roused himself from a fit of abstraction and murmured ecstatically.  "Wass fur plunder!" ("What a place  to plnnder").  'lhat, however, by the way. It may  bo well by way of conclusion to consider the terms of peace which the  victorious entente powers will demand  from the beaten Germanic empires  and their allies. The first step will be  the restoration of Belgium, Serbia,  Montenegro and Poland, with an indemnity sufficient to rebuild those  countries and to take care of their  ruined industries for at least twenty  years to come. The frontiers of Germany must be readjusted to satisfy  t very legitimate national aspiration of  ���������ihose who have the misfortune to.be  her neighbors. Germany must be separated from France by her natural  boundary Hue of the, Rhine, and from  Russia by an autonomous kingdom of  Poland. The menace of the German  fleet must be destroyed. The markets  r.f the entente powrs must be closed  to tho Germanic empires until they  have purged themselves of their un-  cleaness, and especially until they  have flung the Hohenzollerns and  their guilty advisers from power. German immigration into the overseas  portions of the entente empires must  be strictly regulated, if not prohibited  altogether, .for an indefinite period.  The Balkan kingdoms must "he reconstituted, as var as practicable, in ac-.  cordanco with nationalist principles,  and also taking into account the attitude of its various peoples towards  this war for civilization. Italy must  receive special consideration, both in  the north, where thero are large numbers of her sons under Austrian rule,  and in Albania. Turkey, will have to  be thrown right out of Europe. Russia, in that case, -would probably obtain Constantinople in addition to territorial compensation, in East Prussia  and elsewhere. Japan will no doubt  find satisfaction in the retention of  Kiau Chau, and possibly some other  portions of the German overseas oiii-  pire.     . :���������  The indemuity question will no  doubt receive special consideration.  Germany has crippled herself terribly  in her mad-adventure, but the allies  must think : of justice, before mercy,  and in; this connection any nonsense  from the pacificist cranks must V ���������  overwhelmed immediately by the  whole force of public opinion. The future of the world for a century to come  is : just as ; much at stake in settling  the terms of peace as in winning the  war. There is just one other point  worth mentioning, and that is that the  allies should, and probably will, refuse  to recognize the Kaiser or the government or auy of those who are considered to be responsible . for the war.  The German people will have to bear  the terrible cost of it, and the allies  should treat with tlieru direct through  their parliament..  HUGE- RUSSIAN TRADE  Dr. J. D. Prince Urges. Efficient Means  in   Getting   After   it  Dr. J. D. Prince, professor of Slavonic languages at Columbia University, New York, speaking at a luncheon of the Canadian Club at Montreal,  impressed upon the club the importance of cultivating more extensive  trade relations with Russia during the  war, so that after tho war was over  tho Dominion might bear its share in  permanently ousting the Germans  from Russian trade. There was a very  large attendance and much interest  was aroused by Dr. Prince's explanation of Russia's advance during the  past few years and the opportunities  that are opening up for extended  trade.  He pointed out that before the war  practically all Russia's foreign trade  was'handled by the Germans. 'This  huge trade could be taken over by  Canada, in part at least, if it adopted  the same efficient means of getting  after it, such as working through trade  agents, and especially training men.  at the universities and in business  ways so that they would not only understand Russian conditions, but be  able to speak the language. This latter, Dr. Prince emphasized, was a  prime factor, \ and he advocated the  establishment of work along these  lines in at least two Canadian universities, one in the east and one in the  west.-   - -"<;':'���������      ":  GOOD SHOWING OF  COMMISSARIAT DEPARTMENT  Three Good Meals a Day Provided for the British Troops, and  Plenty of Warm Clothing Helps to Make Conditions  in the Trenches as Favorable as Possible  Testing Seed Grain  It   is, doubtful    if any subject, excepting  only  the  war itself,  at  this  juncture, in  the    world's   history  is  commanding more attention than the  products    of    the  dairy,  w*ith  which  cold     storage    is     intimately  allied.

Returning    via    England,  he  found    that possible favor, commanding even a better price than that of  New Zealand, where special and un-  remittent efforts  are being made to  capture  the British trade    in    dairy  products, and where the cheese factories have recently greatly increased  in    number.    Canadian  cheese,    Mr.  Ruddick  testifies,    has    become  the  standard for    all    ''mportalions.    He  paid a visit of inspection to the centres  of the Chedder cheese  industry  in   Shropshire,  Flintshire,   and     Cheshire and was surprised at its extent.  An interesting account is given m  the report of the extension of marketing facilities and of the operations of  the Finch and Brome. dairy stations.  Other    matters    dealt with   are. the  dairy herd records, excess of water in  butter, inspection of-weighing butter  and cheese, the activities of the Pre-  cooling and Experimental Fruit Storage warehouse, at Grimsby, Ont., cold  storage    progress,    publications    and  meetings.

Many- Samples    of Oats  and  Barley  Show Signs of Frost Damage and  Are Unfit For Seed  ; Germination tests made on oats,  wheat and barley this/fall, at the Dominion seed laboratory, at Calgary,  show that there, are considerable  quantities, of oats and barley, particularly in Alberta and Saskatchewan which are unfit for seed. The  average percentage germination for  Alberta oats is' 6S per cent, and none  of the samples of Alberta oats received have germinated up to the  standard which is 95 per cent. Moreover the average preliminary count  which is made at the end of six days  is as low as 35 per cent. Good seed  oats should give a preliminary count  of 85 per cent, to 90 per cent, and a  final (14-day) count of 90 per cent,  to 98 per cent, of vital seeds.  Samples of oats received from Saskatchewan are somewhat better. The  average preliminary count is 50 per  cent, and the average final count is  86 per cent. Many samples show evidence of frost injury, these ���������."always'  giving low percentages of vital seeds,  both in the preliminary and final  counts. Alberta barley has also given  low germination percentages. The  average preliminary (6-day) count is  52 per cent, and the average final (14-  day) count is 70 per cent. These figures are very low and indicate that  considerable proportions of Alberta  oats and barley and Sasaktchewan  oats are weak in vitality and undesirable for seed purposes.  As one of the first essentials for  a good crop of any kind is good seed,  it is important that only good seed  with strong germination energy and  a high percentage of germinable  seeds .should be used. The germination energy of a sample is indicated  by the percentage of seeds which  germinate during the first four or  five days of the test. The premilin-  ary count, therefore, is an index of  the germination energy. If, for example, the preliminary count on a  sample of oats is 25 per cent., the  germination energy of the sample is  very low, but if the preliminary  count is 90 per cent., the germination energy is strong. Two samples  may vary as widely as this in the  preliminary count, but may coptain  the "same percentage of vital seeds  ������������������in which case the final - counts  would be the same. If the final  counts .only were considered, one of  these samples would be thought to  be as good as the other, while in  reality one is good seed and the  other undesirable for use as seed.  The sample with a high preliminary  count will withstand unfavorable  weather conditions at the time of  seeding very ��������� much better than the  other. It will give a more even  stand on the field and a crop which  will in all probability ripen somewhat earlier.  Farmers should satisfy themselves  before seeding time next spring that  their seed grain is of the best quality. This can only be done by a  germination test, conducted either at  home or at the Dominion seed lan-  oratory in Calgary. Samples up to  twenty-live in number will bo tested  at the seed laboratory free of charge  for any individual or company in one  year. Above this number 25 cents, per  test is charged.  Samples from Manitoba. Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia for test should bo addressed to  the Dominion seed laboratory, Box  1C84, Calgary, Alberta, and postage  paid by the sender. It is unneces-  to send stamps for return post-  For wheat, oats, barley and  of similar size, about half a  teacupful should be sent for test;  for seeds of smaller size, such as  tlax, red clover, timothy, etc., half  this quantity is sufficient. If more  than one sample of the same kind  of seed is sent for test they should  bear some distinguishing mark or  number.  Movies Making Strong-  Appeal at Base Camps  Military "Y" Provides Entertainment  in Many Stranae Theatres  Providing entertainment for Canadian soldiers near tho trenches in an  old barn at night, without heat or light,,  is one of the interesting experiences  of a Y.M.C.A. officer, as related in a  letter just received from France.  "Recently a colonel sent in a request,  for a night's entertainment for his  men, but added that it might be wise  to send someone in advance to view course  his accommodations, as all he had was  an old barn," he writes. "We found  the officers and all the men assembled  in the old barn, and, although without heat or light, we had a merry  evening. The piles of last year's straw  served as desirable seats for a large  number, while the overhead beams  were crowded with those who wauted  uninterrupted views. The curtain was  suspended among the cobwebs and the  pathescope machine mounted on a  couple of bully beef boxes, while the  gramophone was honored with a smail  table borowed from a farm house. ,  "No audience at a famous theatre  could have enjoyed the evening better than those chaps. When the  phonograph played pieces they knew  they all joined, in, and several times  during the evening they enlivened the  barn with selections that were not  known when the first division left Canada. Eight rolls, or films were shown,  and "when at the close of the evening  the colonel called for cheers for the  Y.M.C.A., they made the rafters ring,  and an officer from the column, who  accompanied me, said.

The wall, which was sunk into the  ground' to a depth of 100 feet, was  fifteen feet thick, of solid concrete,  antb-experts believed that the subterranean fire would never eat  through it, but that it would prevent it from spreading any farther  and eventually extinguish it. The  fact that the flames have eaten  through this huge barrier has caused  grave fears among the Lehigh Coal  and Navigation officials, who are now  putting forth every possible effort to  prevent the fire getting into the vast  beds  of anthracite  in the  vicinity.  A large force of men are at work  drilling holes deep into the earth,  and into these openings water and  slush is being poured directly on the  subterranean fire, in the hope of preventing a. rapid spread, if impossible  to extinguish it.  Already this fire has destroyed  millions "of dollars worth of coal,  while the sixty-year fight to extinguish it lias cost enormous sums.  0   As  most  people  i never been a war,  j ish    commissariat  made as good a  one.
