 Kettle VaHoy Orchardist  FOURTEENTH YE AR���������No. 23  GRAND FORKS,  B. a,.FRIDAY, APRIL 9, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAR  (|3o thoroughly are the working  men opposed to Attorney-General  Bowser that they scarcely allowed  him to speak last week at a garnering in,Vancouver, where it was advertised by the Conservative association he would appear anc*. explain the workingmen's compensation bill that. Has been proposed  among the legislation drawn by him.  The meeting frequently went into  uproar and on several occasions  broke out in a mournful voice with  the old southern song changed to  "We'll bang old' Bowser to a sour  apple tree," Never before in the  history of Vancouver has there been  such a public disapproval of a  speaker. At the beginning be ' was  not allowed to complete a sentence.  Court stenographers who were there  eould not work for the noise. His  entrance in the wake of A. M. Harvey, who was chairman, was the  signal for a great wave of groans and  jeers.  Mr. Harvey attempted an introductory speech.- He was not permitted to be beard. Some one' in  the audience shouted, "Be ��������� quiet,  everybody, or "they'll send, for the  militia.',' Right from the first word  the attorney-general uttered, be was  heckled jeered and hooed at by the  great majority in the-hall, which  probably held 1000 men and a  sprinkling of women. Mr. Bowser's  o e ing words could not be heard  for the noise, even as far as the press  table. He did make heard, however, a few words, and said, "I confidently expect there are a few labor people in this house���������"  "This is not the bread line," some  shouted back.  "I am here to receive  any  critic-  - ism of the workingmen's eompensa  tion   bill,"   continued the attorney  general,   when   he   was  broken in  upon again with "Why did you lay  it upon the table?"  Mr. Bowser���������I always find when  there is important legislation like  this���������  Voice���������How about the Dominion  Trust?  Mr. B >wser���������If you will not listen there is not much use for me to  speak.  Voice���������Hear, hear. Not a bit of  use.    We don't trust you.  Mr. Bowser���������I thought I would  at least get fair play.  Voice���������Did you give the D*min  ion Trust people fair play?  Mr. Bowser���������If you do not want  to hear me, there is no use vasting  your time nor my iim'e.        ;  Voice���������Get one of Price Ellison's  cows and milk it.

Mr. Bowser���������If you do not want  lo give an honest hearing���������  Voice���������Who is this talks about  honest.  turned white in the face, then red,  then scowled, set bis j-uvs and patiently awaited the end of the chorus.  The attorney general here revived  himself with a swallow of water,  wiped his lips with his" kerahief,  opaned his mouth to continue his  speech, when a voice called "Three  cheers for, Parker. Williams." These  were given. Then another man  called out, "Go, fetch the police"  Ahother .voice, "Send for the militia"  A, temporary lull, and the attorney  general once more opened his mouth  and got a word or two out, when a  voice from another part of the hall  calls, "Tell us about the submarines  ���������it will be more interesting "  Mr. Bowser was ready for the  next lull in the catcalls, jeers and  hooes, and broke in like the cr-ack of  a whip, "I always thought the laboring man and the Socialist was-in  favor of free speech."  .-��������� Voiee���������How about Nanaimo. We  can't trust you.  Agaih'the attorney-general braced  himself and was ready again to  speak, whencame from the middle  of the gathering, a deep, bass voice,  "I say. Bowser is this a deathbed  repentencel"  Another voice���������How about that  little boy who died in jail? ��������� -  Mr.1 -Bowser���������Now, now, those  who-boast of free speech should give  me' an oppoatunity.  The look of appeal upon the stern-  faced attorney-general had a quieting effect for a minute, when be con  tir.ued: "I hope the people are- interested in any legislation we bring  down to hear me, and I am confident when the bill comes up some  of tbe laboring men who huve probably made a deeper study of such  legislation than we have will give us  an opportunity to hear their viewe���������  "When?" cracked a shrill voice  from the rear of the hall.  "Is It not a fact that the attorney-general will let the workmen's  compensation bill lay on the table  for one year, because he wants to  wait until bis friends and clients,  the railway contractors.are through?"  asked a voice.  Mr. Bowser refused to answer.  Mr. Bowser���������I believp there are  some here who want to hear a free  discussion and that is why I came to'  the Labor Temple.

Halyhrey <fe Carter,-*of Curlew,  have started their ice cream factory  in the canm-ry building. Prepara  done are now being made to operate  the creamery section of the plant,  and butter making will commence  in a few days. The greater portion  of the cream is being purchased  from the ranchers in-the valley and  the North Fork district.  Thomas Funkley came down from  Gloucester camp yesterday, - and  brought with him a 35 pound sample of ore from Tom Newby's claim,  the Gloucester. It is the. best specimen of copper ore ever brought out  of tbe camp, and compentent mining men estimate that it will assay  about 22 per cent copper and 10  ounces silver. During the past  year Mr. New by has driven a 90-  foot tunnel on his property. Thirty  feet of this tunnel has uncovered a  vein of this class of ore. The face  of the vein is six feet wide.  -John Simpson, who owns an embryo orchard on the old Newby  ranch, west of this city, writes The  Sun from New York, saying that he  dined in - the Woohvorth building  on Good Friday and- that he spent  some time at the top of the fifty five  H'orey structure. The Woohvorth  building   is   fifty   feet   higher than  Observation mountain, |at Grand  Forks, which is just seven hundred  feet high. The balcony where the  spectators stand on the Woolworth  is 750 feet above the street. Mr.  Simpson went to the top of the  building with Joe Elliott, an old-  timer of Grand Folks. Joe .was in  Grand Forks before there was a railway here. He came here from Boss  burg, and stayed a year. His brother  Charlie was here also, and worked  on the Covert ranch. Tbe Elliott  brothers have now a very large  electric construction bnsiness in  Calgary, and Joe and his youngest  brother, William, left New York  last Saturday morning -for France,  where they expect to take large contracts in their line. They left  Charlie in charge of their Calgary  businees. All the old timers here  know the Elliotts.

Lovvery's    Greenwood  Ledge.    We reproduce the item  be  cause we seldom hear his name connected   with   any  commendable actions, and we desire  to give  everybody a  square deal.    Whether he  possessas any political aspirations or  not is a question of the second magnitude, and entirely irrelevant at the  present moment:      "Gus Evans has  more brains probably tban any other  Liberal in Grand  Forks,   and never  changes his politics in order to push  his nose into the pap .barrel.    He is  a   worker and   fighter,- -and   never  bangs up 'he tomahawk   until be is  dead,   or" grabs   the   other fellow's  scalp.    He also owns  a remarbable  ranch at the Forks.   When he wants  to sell it, it contracts to half an acre,  when he wishes to   hire   a   man  to  plow it,   it  expands  to   five acres.  Gus rises and sets with the Sun. He  is one  of the leading  humorists of  the   western   cent    belt,   and   his  pungent paragraphs are highly   appreciated by all lovers of satire.   He  would make a  good   Liberal candidate at the coming election."  VISIT FRANKLIN  R C. Newland, a prominent mining man of San Francisco, and G.  T. Morgan, of Portland,. Ore , and  Fred M: Wells, of Vancouver, arrived in the city on Monday, and  left immediately on their arrival for  Gloucester camp, where tbey spent  a couple of days inspecting the  Union mine. They returned to tbe  city Wednesday t evening in Stana-  way & Peterson's jitney car. Mr.  Wells visited the mine, about a  month ago, and was so highly impressed with the property that be  induced Messrs. Newland and Morgan to make an inspection visit to it.  Tbe outcome of the visit of these  gentlemen to the camp up the river  will be awaited with interest by tbe  people of this city.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  R. R.

We Paid, But Got Nothing  Replying to Hon. irank Oliver in  the bouse of commons on Thursday,  Hon. Dr. Roche, minister of the interior, said that th? department of  Indian,affairs did not recognize the  alleged purchase of the Kiisilano  Indian reserve by the government  of British Columbia.  This is the raserve for which the  attorney general paid $300,000 on*  behalf of the province���������8220,000 of  which went to the Indians and $80,-  000 to two political friends, one of  whom was a former clerk in the ali-  embracing firm of Bowser, Reid it  Wallbridge.  But, alas and alack! the transaction was not conducted in accordance with the terms of the Indian  act, that is, the department of Indian affairs, the guardian of the Indians, was not a party to it as required by the law governing the surrender of reserves, and therefore it  was not a valid transfer and the title  remains in the Indian band. It was  a brilliant piece of work end showed  the attorney-general at his best as an  authority on how not to do it. Vn  fortunately, these experiments of  Mr. Bowser are very costly. It is  not pleasant to reflect thac we have  paid $300,000 for property we cannot own, especially when ������.SO,000  ���������vent into the capacious maw of the  middleman.  ^^^���������^ifo^,^^^ gHE~"sE5j, msa&rmiamiKTB  j  Preservation of Bird  Life is of  Benefit to the Farmer  Now is "the very best time of year  for their human friends    to  express  some    return    interest    in    the bird  neighbors which have been doing so  , much" for mankind.  A feast of cracked nuts, suet, sunflower seed, fruits and grains spread  daily at come community centre easily accessible to all the bird fclie, but  protected from their enemies, would  be especially appreciated by the feathered residents, now that food is  scarce and hard to" obtain, even by  the most industrious workers. Some  of the friendliest of the little folks  will oomo to a window sill festal  board where you may observe their  pleasure in your treat.  Without rude intrusion or rough investigation, to see if they are.comfortable, in v/hatever homes they have  found, you might provide some neighborhood shelters where all the feathered-habitants of woods and fields be  * safe and welcome. .* . '  Ami then proceed to get acquainted  with the little folks themselves. Ifi-  you care about such things '.you will  fni(I out.in."Who is Who in Bird Land"  that many of your unassuming little  -neighbors have a pedigree of which  any one might be proud.  Highest in point of development is  the ShJia sialis, one of the earliest  comers of the most'exclusive of the  blue rocks. Their ancestors have  never been accused of stealing fruits  or pteying upon crops of any kind.  These Bluebirds subsist entirely upon  a diet of wild/fruits, and insect enemies of man.  You may. have been a little suspicious about the Night Hawks who go  abroad at hours when honest" folks  should be in bed. They are great  sportsmen and such expert aeronauts  that no winged iiuect is safe from  them. They contribute greatly to the  healthfulness of the section where  they live, by disposing in a most effective and hygienic manner, of several  species* of mosquitoes, among them,  the anopheles the transmitter of  malaria.  Mrs; American Barn Owl is quite  content with her homely name, satisfying her artistic nature with a harmonious costume of buff, overlaid  with grayish, spotted with white and  dotted wtih.black. She is the radical  leader of all progressive movements  among her sisters, refuses to make a  nest .-and goes out at night unaccompanied. She maintains "her independent economic status in the civic plan  or the bird republic1 by ridding the  community of ..meadow-... mice, rats,  beetles, shrews, gophers and other undesirable settlers in the fields.  Not anything you read or hear -'bout  these folks will be half so intere:;1 Ing  or convincing- as -what you may find  out for yourself.by respectful observation. Especially if you will look for  good in both permanent and migrating  neighbors.  Even the Common Crows, the blackest of them all, who have had their  pictures put in the Rogues' Gallery  more than once, are great co-operators. They are shrewd and crafty  folk, not easily outwitted and interesting because of fheir individualistic  tendencies and variable temperaments. It is true they do not like to  follow plans nor pick up corn laid  down for them by mere man, preferring to get at the root and kernel of  the material themselves, hut all of  these birds have so often been accused  and for-which they have been condemned to death. They go after and  capture the wireworms, cutworms,  white grubs, grasshoppers and other  parasdc hangers-on which render no  useful service.-in return for the food  they steal and destroy. ���������  By signing and sending in to the  Liberty Bell Bird Club of the Farm  Journal, Phila., Pa., the following-  pledge you may, without cost, become  a member of this club' which is encouraging bird study and protection:  "I desire to become a member of  the Liberty Bell Bird Club of the  Farm Journal, and I promise to study  and protest, all song and insectivorous birds and do what I can for the  club."  FOR EASY. RUNNING, LIGHT DRAFT  AND .LONG SERVICE.    THEY ARE MADE IN CANADA  Canada Profits Greatly  Up   TO  Financial Experts Place Total  Date at $200 000,000  Sir Edmund Osier, president of the  Dominion Bank, states that the business situation in Canada at the present time is being assisted, instead of  injured, by the circumstances arising  out of the war. The prevalent depression, he declared, had been relieved  by the higher values which the war  had placed upon tlie country's produce  and by the employment induced by orders for war materials.  Some idea of the extent to which  the Dominion has benefitted by the  war may be gained from the conservative estimate of a prominent financial expert of the Dominion, who  places the amount at $200,000,000.  This, he declares, the Dominion would  never have had had it not been for the  war.  It is estimated that the textile industry, alone has benefitted to the extent of ?S,000,000 for war-orders, this  including the -orders for Canadian  uniforms, a million dollar order recently placed with Mark ��������� Workman,'(  Montreal, by the war office, and a  further four million dollar order from  the same source being let to firms all  oyer Canada.  * The depression in the steel industry  has been almost entirely dispelled by  orders    for   shrapnel shell,    armored  motor cars,    cartridge    cases,    structural steel for bridges, etc., and it is  estimated"that this industry has reaped tens of millions from such orders.  In saddlery, harness, boots, etc., it  is computed that the leather industry  has    benefitted    to    the ' amount- of  ;twenty millions by war orders  from  the  Canadian  government,    the  war  office    and    the   British and French  governments.    Rifles    and.   ammunition orders have been placed to the  extent of oyer two millions, while the  hardware business    has-benefitted to  the tune of two and a half millions  in  mess  tins,;   shovels,  etc..   Nearly  two millions have already been spent  in    Canada    for   canned meats   and  other goods for war purposes, while  it is stated that, orders placed for railroad sleepers and; other lumber commodities approximate a million with  more orders   in sight.   iRemounts for  the    British   government    have been  purchased to the approximate value of  four millions.  Conserving the  Would Seize Wheat  Just Ordinary Rains  Rise   in   Focd   Prices-in . England  Food prices have advanced twenty  per cent, in England since the outbreak of the war, according to -preliminary reports presented to a parliamentary   investigating'  committee.  Suffering among the poor has been  further increased, investigators reported, by wholesale reductions .in'  salaries. Among the poorer classes  who ars forced to live on a few  shillings a .week, the food question  it; acute.  ICggs     have  advanced   six  cents  a  dozen since the outbreak of the war;  three  cents  on  a   four  pound  beef,   mutton   and   bacon,   four  cents  a   pound,  and  tea  bread  loaf:  to  sb  cents.  The government's    demands  the   nation's   fuel   supply     has  creased the price of coal nearly  n ton.  four  upon  in-  $1.50  One of the guests at a wedding,  seeing a dismal looking young man  who appeared to be on terms of  familiarity with  the principals, said:  "Are you related.to the bride or to  the bridegroom elect?"  "Wo,"  was the gloomy reply.  ''Then," said the guest, "what interest have you in the ceremony?''  "Well," replied the young .man,  'I'm the defeated candidate."  Experiments    Disprove   Theory   That  Precipitations   From   Heavens  Can  Be Produced by Gun  Fire  So far as the records are available  the rain accompanying or immediately  following .great battles is not unlike  that which might have been expected  in the course of natural events, says  a.writer in the Popular Science Monthly. Bearing in mind the fact,-already  stated, that throughout large areas  rain occurs on an average once in  three or four days, and also the subjective fact that rain associated with  July 1 celebrations or with hattles  would doubtless not have been remembered had it not been for such associations, the hypothesis appears to have  no foundation.  In 1892 the United States government disproved the idea by experiments in which violent explosions of  djnamite were'produced within.clouds  by means of kites and balloons, wit.n  no rain following as a direct or even  as an indirect result The practice,  still followed in various Europe:u:  countries, of ..attempting to prevent  hail- by bombarding approaching  clouds or of projecting vortex rings  of smoke upward, also is without  scientific basis. The relatively feeble  convectional currents resulting from  these artificial attempts to influence  the weather are too meagre to have  any appreciable effect upon the massive convection accompanying storms-  and are wholly inadequate to influence  precipitation.  Home Demand- Not- Supplied and  Large. Exports Deplete Breeding  Cattle  The department of agriculture has  been paying special attention to the  conserving and increasing of Canada's supplies of live stock, with a  view both to mooting the demands  for home consumption and to taking  advantage of the splendid opportunities now offered for developing a largo  export trade. Prices both in Canada  and abroad for practically all kinds of  meats and dairy produce are very  ��������� high, and war conditions have accentuated the shortage of supply. On  the other hand, Canadian farmers  have not by any means kept pace  with the increased demands from  consumers at home, and the opening  up of the United States market  through |he taking off of the duty  against Canadian cattle has been followed by the export of millions of  dollars' worth of prime cattle, leaving  stocks-now on hand at a very low  ebb. In Western Canada, especially;  there has been a very severe decrease  in breeding stock. Canada has become a large importer of beef, mutton and hog products, although conditions in the Dominion should make  instead for the devolopment'of a large  export business.  During the first ten months of last  year Canada imported 3 32,2*J.8 sheep  and 4,015,152 pounds of mutton and  lamb. The imports of hog products  for the same period amounted to 57,-  575 pounds of fresh, chilled and frozen  pork and 8,340,210 pounds of pork  barreled in brine. During the same  .ten months there were imported L-  643,728 pounds of fresh, chilled and  frozen beef, and 996.S37 pounds of  beef salted in barrels.  On the other hand, exports of some  o^f these commodities are showing-  large increases. The trade in hams  and bacon, which is now being developed with Great Britain, and to a  less, extent with the eastern United  States, promises to become of steadily increasing*" importance. Packevs  now state that with- a price of seven  cent hogs to the farmers they can  successfully compete with Denmanc  iii the British market. Our export of  hams and bacon to Great Britain and  to-the eastern United States during  the first ten month-j of 19M amounted to 19,526,384 pounds, and is now  increasing rapidly month by month.  The chief danger seen by the department of agriculture is in the depleting of the breeding supplies, and an  educational campaign to induce more  widespread and vigorous efforts towards stock raising'in'all..the' provinces  is now being undertaken.  British Trade Unions Say Government  Should Seize the Whent "upply  The General Federation of Trades  Unions, in a document issued regarding tiie high prices of food in the  United Kingdom, recommends chiefly  that the British governemnt take over  all wheat supplies as has been done  in Germany.  "The British fanner," tlie document reads, "wouu suffer no real  hardship or loss if the government  commandeered the whole home-grown  and unmarketed wl.eat at ���������', shillings  (?10.50) a quarter, and immediate action on these linos would tjn - to moderate prices."  The manifesto charge-; the government with failure to anticipate aud  organize against certain consequences  of "the war and urges quick and drastic remedial action to avert a situa-1  tion  which  is "becoming, desperate.,"  The committee suggests a better  distribution of in- mi rig steamships  at ports other than London and Liverpool.    Continuing it says:'  "Now that-jroubles have developed  the govenmioiit must move, not tentatively, as if the next century would  do, but immediately. The- procedure  of r.rize courts must be expedited and  all captured ships must be ���������\air/,'l,  manned and utilized by the state for  the purpose of transporting supplies  purchased directly from the producer  and such supplies must be placed.on  the market at prices to /rover only  the . costs   and   distribution   charges."

Pretty soon the rolltop desk farmers will be telling us that radium is  a fertilizer; but, of course, it is only  a stimulant which enables the crop  to take more',out of the ground without putting anything in.

They stayed there day after day without relief, resisting and resisting successfully, overwhelming forces which  were trying to drive them out. At last  the time for relief came. They came  out of the trenches but only a fourth  of those w'na had gone into them, and"  they came out under the command of  one who.-had become their senior officer,' a boy of sixteen. When they  came out he formed up his men. lie  gave them the order to march and  then he burst into tears, and fell faint-"  ing to the ground: ' While duty required it he had clone all that was  wanted of him, but when it- was over-  the strain was-too much, and he broke  down.

Compensations of War  The compensation's of war are at  least as great as its horrors r.nd miseries, and they are..of a kind that harmonize with rnd illustrate 'much that  is fundamental,in the Christian ideal.  If there is any virtue in sacrifice  for an ennobling cause, in the spirit  of service that dedicates life itself  to its end, and in the brotherliness  and unity that bears down all barriers and links rich a:id poor in a common sympathy and a common devotion, then the war which has evoked  these qualities in superabundant degree is not without its redeeming  side.���������London Daily Mail.

The total number of  accidents recorded, is 25,800 against  22,200 for the previous year, and the  report moreover states that "the proportion of 'fatal accidents is increasing  rapidly, owing to the multiplication  of motor vehicles."

"I have received many letters expressing displeasure at my stand in  favor of the allies," he said. "They  ask me if I am an Englishman, and  where I was born, and what tho  British pay me, and what, also, we  owo to Britain. So I have thought  about our debt to Britain."

Sense About Food  Facts Worth Knowing  The arithmetic lesson that day had  been hard and trying, aiid now, at the  closing hour, Tommy stood before the  teacher, waiting to hear results.  "Your last problem is wrong," was  the verdict. "You will have to stay  after school r.nd do it again."  Tommy looked at the clock. "Tell  me, teacher, how much r.m^.1 out?" he  asked.  "Your answer is two cents short."  Tommy's hand dived into the pocket  where his most treasured possessions  were stored. Swiftly he separated two  pennies from a bunch of strings, a pen  knife, some marbles and pieces of  chalk.  "I'm in a hurry." he said; "if you  don't mind I'll pay the difference."  It is a serious question sometimes  to know just'what to eat when a person's stomach is out of order and most  foods cause trouble.  Grape-Nuts food can be taken at any  time with the certainty that it will digest. ' Actual experience of people is  valuable to anyone interested.  A woman writes: "I had suffered  with indigestion for about four years,  ever since an attack of typhoid fever,  and at times could eat nothing but the  very lightest food, and then suffer so  with my stomach 1 would wish I never  had to oat anything.  "I was urged to try Grape-Nuts and  since using it I do not have to starve  myself any more, but I can eat it at  any time and feel nourished and satisfied, dyspepsia is a thing of the pa3t,  arrd 1 am now strong and well.  ".My husband also had an experience  with Grape Nuts. He was very weak  and sickly one spring, and could not  attend to his work. He was put under  the doctor's care but medicine did noj-  seem to do him any good until he began to leave off ordinary food and use  Grape-Nuts. It was surprising to see  the change in him. He grew hotter  right off. and naturally he has none  but words of praise for Grape-Nuts.  "Our boy thinks he cannot eat a  meal without Grape-Nuts, and he  learns so fast at school that his teacher comments on it. I am satisfied that  it is because of the great nourishing  elements in Grape-Nuts.  This mother is right. Grape-Nuts  food is a certain and remarkable re-  builder of body, nerves and brain.

Joins Army to Get Even  The Ottawa Free Press says: "Because a German won a ranch from  him in a poker game, several months  ago, a 'six-foot-two' westerner has enlisted with the 8th C.M.R., seeking  revenge. The young giant arrived in  the city a couple of days ago in  charge of a carload of racehorses and  ���������when he heard that a mounted regiment was being raised here, immediately went to headquarters and enlisted.  "I've got a lasting grudge against  the Germans, and I'm going to get  even some day. I guess there is no  better way than by going to war. I  may run against my friend," he said,  Many novel reasons are advanced by  young fellows recruiting for the war,  hut officers agree that this is the  most interesting yet heard.  Machinery  r hat Mothers Farm Credit  Says   the  June   bulletin  issued  by  the   Muskogee   (Oklahoma)   National  bank:  "Every farmer should pay attention  to the care of machinery and tools.  It not only is careless and reckless to  permit various kinds of implements to  be scattered around the farm and exposed to all kinds of weather, but the  actual money loss is worth while.  Much machinery becomes useless on  account of rust, decay and neglect.  Few things do mor> to establish  credit for tho farmer than attention  and care given to implements and  vehicles. Everything a farmer has  to work with should be kept in a  clean, dry place ready for use on demand. This suggestion is especially  valuable now before harvest and the  wise farmer will have his mower  and binder in Iirst class condition so  that no time is lost when suddenly  needed."  The mower left out all winter has  smothered many a loan!  Miller's Worm Powders  can  do no  injury to the most delicate child.

Thousand German Papers Suspended  Speaking in Berlin at a meeting-  of the German Lyceum club, Mr.  Alexander Deitz, director of the  Wolff Agency, said that one thousand  German papers, .one hundred and  twenty of them political ones, had  been forced to cease publication owing to  the war.       *S  j'l .SS"  Minard's Liniment Cures Diphtheria.  The Cocos Island, where the German cruiser Euiden 'put up its last  fight, is orio of the most romantic  places in the Pacific. It is a coral  reef, really, fringed with palm trees,  and lying"about. 350 miles from the  Dutch East Indies.  The king of the island*is a colored  man named Ross rich as a trader,  and despotic among his own people.  He is the descendant el a Scottish  sailor of 1830, who' established himself on the island, planted palm trees  by the thousand, and settled down  with'a colored spouse. Life went  very well in those solitude:! then.  Of course, there was always the fear  that a tidal wave might sweep the  island with a sudden tornado of  waters, and (toss was never quite  certain whether his strip of land  would make up its mind to stay  where it was, or whether it would  sink back again to the depths. But  he chanced it. And the Island stayed on  top and  Ross  stayed  with  it.  ITCHED ID BURNED  ���������   ���������   ��������� ���������   Unsightly, [ Could Not Put Hand in  Hot Water.

There  is no one in Victoria at present who can act authoritatively in this matter.  The appreciable increase of  support which tho Liberal  cause is at present receiving  from city and country newspapers in this province is uot,  by any means, the least encouraging sign of success at  the polls.. In the last provincial campaign the Victoria  Times and The Sun had a  monopoly of this work.  Thirty-six of the delegates  that unanimously nominated  Hon. Thomas Taylor at Re-v-  elstoke .last week were government employees. There is  no Tory machine in B. C!  Don't  wait  too .lornj;  have that  to  The old Tory cartoons used  in the last Dominion elections  are beginning to make then-  reappearance in the newspapers, of this province. If  any significance can be attached to this incident, it is  that we are not far removed  from a federal election. The  cartoons are evidently supplied the Conservative papers  from Ottawa.  An unsolvable political mystery in the Grand Forks constituency appears- to be the  . present status of our road superintendent. Some people  say he has lost his job. Others  say he still holds it, while another rumor maintains that he  has been suspended until  after the election, in order to  appease the wrath of a certain element in the Conservative ranks opposed to him,  and that after the election,  should the Tories be victorious, he will be installed in his  former position.   Our readers  Agricultural Bulletins  So great has been the demand for  bulletins, pamphlets records and reports upon the publications branch  of tbe department of agriculture at  Ottawa as a result of the Patriotism  and Produc'ion movement, that it  has been found impossible to comply with all the applications as  promptly as could be desired. Of  gome of the bulletins the supply has  been exhausted and no time has  been afforded for reprinting, while  of others the quantity asked for individually has been such that in  stant compliance, would mean many  applicants might have to go without. This has meant extra correspondence arid consequent delay.  The situation is, of course, satisfactory as indicating the success of the  campaign, and the widespread interest created, but the inability to  respond on the instant with the mul  titude of applications is greatly ��������� regretted. At the same time it is im  possible that the size of tbe demand  could have been foreseen. As fast-  as possible the requests will be attended lo, but in the meantime there  will have to be printing and in cases  revising.

This form of rheumatism in pigs  can usually be taken as an indication  that care and feeding have not been  of the right kind. .Pigs kept in cold,  damp pens or subjected to exposure  are apt to be affected ;iu: this wayr  Overfeeding is another common cause.  Of course, there .may be other causes,  for instance at the beginning of an  outbreak of cholera the symptoms of  rheumatism are frequently present.  The first thing . we would advise  would be to put the pigs in dry-, comfortable quarters, if they are not already there. Keep them away from  old straw stacks or manure heaps.  Bed them weir with clean, dry straw,  in a house that is well *ventilated but  free from drafts. In the.way of medicinal treatment we quote from Dr.  Craig: "Salicylate of soda h the most  useful drug to'give in this disease. The  dose is twenty or thirty grains .in the  feed or as a drench three times a  day. Quinine and bitter tonics can  also be given. Blistering ointments  and liniments should be applied to'the  inflamed articulations."���������The Farmer's  Guide.

Taylor, Sr., a very estimable man living here, is telling his friends that the  pain in his back, from which he suffered for some time, has disappeared,  and that he gives all tbe credit to  Dodd's Kidney Pills.  "My trouble started with a cold,"  Mr. Taylor states, "and though I  was treated by a doctor I got no  permanent relief. I had cramps in  my muscles and stiffness in my joints,  my sleep was broken and unrefresn-  ing and I perspired freely with the  least exertional had attacks of rheumatism and sciatica, and tliough I  tried many medicines I found no relief till I tried Dodd's Kidney Pills.  I must say they were a great benefit  to me."  Mr. Taylor's troubles came from  his kidneys. The diseased kidneys  failed to strain the uric acid out of  the blood and the results were as he  has stated. Dodd's Kidney Pills put  the kidneys in working order, the  uric acid was strained out of  the blood, and the troubles >;ent with  it.

While the general scheme . of Thomas H. Mawson,  the ; well, known authority on town  planniug and landscape improvement,  will be far from completion this year,  the new concrete swimming pool and  bath house originally planned by the  government and incorporated into the  scheme, has just been completed. The  pool occupies a site on the side of  the Sulphur mountain, where there is  a .'.arge spring of sulphur water rising  outof the mountain side. The pool  and bath house lie parallel to the  mountain side, one end abutting the  weir known basin, tho other covering  a* tunnel entrance to the cavo. The  structure of reinforced concrete is  built upon a bench excavated in the  mountain1 sxdc, 4,575 feet above sea  level, .and about 200 feet above the  bottom of the Bow river valley of  which it affords an excellent view.  The pool itself is 150 feet'long and  35 feet wide, with a depth varying  from o feet to S feet. The sides are  formed b}' light reinforced concrete  walls, lined with -'white enamelled  brick,.and finished at the top with a  tera cotta scum trough and hah 1 rail.  The bottom is a reinforced concrete  pavement on an asphalt base. The  bath house has a length of 137 feet; is  27 feet wide, and 40 feet high. The  roof will be used as a promenade, and  will also provide daylight for the  dressing rooms, as it consists of 4,000  square feet of prism lights. To soften  this light, and also to protect the  prisms from the steam arising'from  the bathers, there is an arch diffuser  sash over the dressing room, with  openings from which the air and  steam are removed by a fan. There  are a total of 132 individual dressing  rooms in the bath house, with fresh  water shower baths and other -toilet  facilities.  Man's  Friend  Training  in  Russia  The non-combatant classes of  sia are devoting much of their  to the training- of dogs intended to  be sent to the front as dumb but  noble "brothers and sisters of mercy."  It has become a favorite occupation of the upper classes to indulge  in this highly serviceable and humanitarian work. The dogs s are  being trained not only to search for  the wounded on the deserted battlefields and to deliver, bandage material and iirst aid medicaments, ' but  also to warm them and revive them  in case of unconsciousness.  In view of the advent of the sharp  wintry cold, .which is more intense  in' the eastern than in the western  theatre of war, with its attendant  frost, avalanches and blizzard's, the.  discovery and succour of the wound-'  cd soldiers must bo effected in the  shortest possible period as three or  four hours' contact Avith snow laden  and frost bitten soil will often suffice to,, prove fatal 'to the wounded  and lielpless soldier.  In addition to this, *the conditions  of modern warfare are such "as to  make it frequently necessary for the  soldier to advance towards the enemy's position undo:* fire, hiding as  lie advances in bushes, marshes,  and glens.  In. these circumstances the tracing  of the wounded would be extremely  difficult without the aid of the canine  instinct and intelligence.  Thousands of brave fellows,  wounded in their country's cause, already owe their lives to the dogs.

Can Only Be Cured Through lie Rich  Blood  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  Actually Make  You cannot cure eczema or remove  disfiguring pimples by the use of ointments, washes or salves applied outwardly. The trouble is due to impure  blood and can.only be cured through  the blood. That'is. the-reason'..why Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills cure eczema and  other forms of skin diseases. They  act directly on the blood���������-make it  rich, red and pure, and thus enable  the system to expel the impurities  that have broken.out through the skin,  disfiguring the face and other portions  of:.the body and causing great humiliation to the sufferer. Mrs. -M. McAr-  thur, Byrne, Sask., says: "I can most  tu-ongly recommend Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills as a cure for eczema, as  they restored rny little ^oy after doctors and other medicines failed. His  head and face was covered with ec-  zematous sores, which itched so badly  that we frequently-had to tie his  hands to prevent him from scratching  himself. We tried salves and outward  washes given by the doctor, but they  did not do him a particle of good. After consulting my husband we decided  to give him Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  It was not long before we found wc  had the right medicine, and in the  course of a month cr so every sore  had disappeared and his skin was as  smooth and healthy as any ones."  These g-eat blood-building Pills can  be procured through any medicine  dealer or by mail at 50 cents a box or  six boxes for $2.50 from The Br. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.  Interesting  ing   to  Facts and   Figures   Relat-  Suppiy   During   Present  Crisis  In most countries this year's crop  (191-1) is below average. It is estimated France will have to import  56,000,000 bushels, Austria something  like 40,000,000 bushels, as their crop  is '10,800;000 bushels less t/ian usual.  .Germany is morv. fortunate with a  crop some eight millions above the  average. Even so, she ' will still  need approximately 60 million bushels  from the outside world. .  Russia's average export is 140,800,-  000 bushels. The- crop this year is  not far from an average, but their  problem is not to feed itself but to  safely market its wheat.  Semi-official reports from France  gave the yield of wheat as 296,000,-  000 bushels. The annual consumption  amounts to 360.000,000 bushels.  Italy���������Official report places final  yield of wheat at 108,000,000 bushels.  Broomhall says annual importation  will likely be exceeded owing to military operations.  Official reports for 1914 shows the  following losses compared .with ��������� the  production of wheat the previous  year:  Russia    Prance      Canada   Italy    Germany ......  Austria-Hungary  : A total of nearly -100 million under  1913. .  The United States increased 135  million showing a total of about 900  million bushels, allowing a surplus  of around 275 million bushels to supply the deficiencies in all oth^r countries. On October 15th about half ot  this had been sold.  Broomhall figured there was a  shortage in the world's wheat supply  this year of 42S,000,000 bushels.

The Retail Store . '-  The retail store as a way station  in the channels of trapse is an indispensable factor in perpetuating the  commercial life of a community. With  the destruction of the commercial  life of the central town or city of a  community all other forms of social  life must cease to exist because they  all depend upon commerce and trade.  For this reason the citizen needs the  town fully as much as the town needs  the citizen. Let him not suppose that  in the few packages he carries home  from the local store are contained all  the things he receives for the money  he passes over the counters of the  local merchants. Substantially all the  comforts and conveniences of modern civilized society are passed out to  him in return for his patronizing his  home home merchants. The surest  way to deprive himself of those facilities and environments that make life  worth living is to withdraw his patronage from the local town.  Nights of Agony come in the (rain  of asthma.

A  An  Powerful German- Explosive  officer who has been through  the entire campaign and is now resting before returning to the front,  gives some details concerning a new  and extremely powerful explosive  which the Germans have been . mploy-  iug for about a month.  "My battalion," he said, "facetiously  calls the missiles 'bottles of champagne.' They are cylindrical in form  and about as long as a champagne  bottle. That is to say, about 12 to  16 inches long and about 5 inches in  diameter. We suppose they are filled  with liquid air or liquid carbonic  acid.  "They are thrown a distance of from  300 to 400. yards���������this is the maximum. You can follow the projectile  through the air and see where it is  going to drop. They are apparently  thrown by means of mortars, and  when they fall and explode tho effect  is equivalent to that produced by the  explosion of a charge of 132 pounds  of melinite.

It is  invidious to make comparisons, but  one of the most thrilling incidents,  perhaps, is the story of how Private  J. Meston, of the Sixth Dragoon  Guards, won the medal. Meston was  at Messine*: when the London "Scottish  made their famous charge, and in  spite of t'carfi-.I shell and machine guu  ure he repeatedly went out, dressed  the wounds of the London Scottish,  and carried them out of action.

THE TRYING EXPERIENCES OF A CANADIAN NURSE  Work of these Brave Woman  and  the  Heroic Acts   they  have  Performed  will some day be Written in Letters of-Gold  in the Imperishable Deeds of British History  While the man in khaki is bearing  the brunt of the battle in the firing  line the Red Cross nurse is performing as important and in many cases,  as dangerous, a work not very far  away from where the shells are bursting and the big guns send forth their  messengers of death. They know  neither danger r.or fatigue but quietly  and courageously go about their mission of mercy. Upon their armlet they  bear the Rett Cross sign but this has  ���������not prevented the Germans on many  . occasions from firing upon them in order that they may b>, prevented from  succoring and binding up^.the wounded and the fallen.  These are Jorave women and when  the smoke of "battle has died away and  peace has once again been restored  upon the continent "of Europe the work  that they have performed- and the  brave- acts they have done will be  written in letters of gold in the imperishable of British history'. That the  work of -the. Red Cross nurses does  not merely' comprise looking after  and tending the wounded will be  shown by the following intensely interesting acount of the work of  "Nurse Amy Neale, whose letter to her brother, Lieut. J. B. Neale,  of the 10th Royal Grenadiers of Toronto, was recently published in the  Toronto Sunday World.  In the course of he:* letter Miss  Neale says: "A short time ago a very  long train stopped at our siding about  ���������������������������10 p.m. It contained two complete  hospitals from India, one for the natives and one for the British Indian  wounded. Just imagine how cold they  were. They had left India in the hot  weather and had come straight to Boulogne and Marseilles. We gave them  hot tea, etc., as we always have boiling water ready and in the morning I  got the sisters into the dispensary to  ���������have a good warming. Poor things,  they were grateful as they had.spent  the night in the train and of course  when the engine was taken1 off the  carriages were not heated. One of  these Indian hospitals is now housed  at a beautiful hotel facing the sea with  the tents round :t.  "I was .on duty here at the station,''  continues Miss Neale, "where we  heard the sad news of Lord Roberts'  death; one says 'sad' and yet in a way  It seemed the right tiling and what he  would no doubt-Lave liked.- One of  the railway officials said, 'YVc weep  also with you, my sister.' . lie had  tears in his -eyes when he spoke."    .  Miss Neale then foes' on to cpeak of  tho ambulance trains which are capable of taking :'iree or four hundred  cases and are equipped splendidly.  The bunks are arranged something  like a Pullman and tl.ere is a dispensary and a kitchen on board, as weil  as quarters for nursing and surgical  staffs.  The duties of the- Red Cross nurse  are varied as wi.ll be seoi. from the  following example "described in Miss  Nea'le's story. Early on.1, morning  some Frenchmen were waiting on the  platform for tlieir train for the front.  They were not soldiers but were going  to dig trenches. It was bitterly cold  and they were invited to partake of a  hot drink. They were all lined up and  were given hot cocoa and bread and  butter The commanding officer wanted to'pay but when toid that there  was no. charge he insisted on giving a  donation to the Red Cross work.  "Never, never will .." forget the Red  Cross," he. said.  Nurse Neale has graphically de-  scribed'the **. u'ious duties that'fall to  the lot of a Red Cross nurse at the  battle front and near the base where  the wounded men are restored to  health and in many, cases, almost  brought back to life, so terrible are  the conditions under which they are  lighting at the present time It will  be readily realized that this work can  only be carried on successfully if the  people of Canada-give it their hearty  support both in material and actual  cash. .  It will/be necessary to prepare for  many more months of war and as long  as this dreadful campaign lasts so  will comforts be needed for the  troops and money needed to purchase  necessities tor use in the hospitals  and near the trenches where the  wounded men are given first aid. So  much can be done in tne way of knitting circles, entertainments, contests  of various kinds and those who unselfishly give up some of the more  frivolous enjoyments of life and take  up the more serious ones as befits the  present period in our national history  will be rendering a service to-their  country and their countrymen as  valued as those who are actually engaged  in  the force  of arms.  Besides cash contributions the Red  Cross Society is in need most especially of socks, sizes 11. and ll1^, grey  flannel shirts, the patterns of which  will be supplied on application to the  society, and knitted knee caps, pit-  terns of which will also be sent to  those making application.  The Value', of  To Prevent the  Export of Arms  Petition is. Being Widely Circulated in  the United States  A protest strongly worded against  the United States continuing to permit the exportation of munition of war  to the allies : *. Europe is being circulated by interested persons in the republic, and according to report is receiving federal support. The protest  contains arguments against allowing  exportation on the ground that munitions, besides going to Europe, are going to Japan. "We are fortifying not  Noilly Europe; ns against each other;  we are fortifying others against ourselves," it says. ���������  A copy of this paper, which aims  to bring ' pressure to bear on the  United States government has been  received by Frof. Anderson, of Toronto university.   It says:  "We, the citizens of the United  States of America, appeal in the name  of justice and humanity, in the name  of neutrality and- future peace, to the  people, to the law makers and the  government of our country to prevent  the export from our shores of one  single weapon, or one pound of powder to deal death in Europe.  "The president of the United States  has prevented the loan of money to  Franco and thereby our country has  set its own precedent of what is just  and right. This precedent binds us in  legal opinion as well as in the estimate of the world, to pursue a course  of undubitable neutrality."  The protest detairs that great orders have been accepted and are being executed in the United States for  the continuance of war, and asks:  "Where are our peace societies?  Where are our women's organizations? Where are our churches? Are  we, for the sake qf present business  profit���������willing to draw upon ourselves  an enduring heritage of hatred? Cen-  , erations will not suffice to wipe away  the stain we bring upon ourselves.  Guns, ammunition, cartridges, ��������� dynamite, bombs,,are going from our manufacturers not only to England,  France and Russia, but also to the  Japanese. We are fortifying not only  Europeans against each other; we are  fortifying others against oursefves. In  case of any future struggle forced upon our own land, picture the destruction brought upon us did any neutral  of Europe take the position of neutrality we assume today.  "We protest not only in the interest  of America, but above all in the name  of humanity, against a prolongation  by our country of this hideous warfare. Our own land will be stained  with the blood of our European  brothers."  Fire from Calais to Dover  Weapon Said to Have a Range of 25 to  28 Miles  A German military newspaper announces that a new naval gun of 16-  inch calibre, with a range of twenty-  miles, has :.een created.  Remarkable figures regarding a new  German naval gun are given by a German artillery expert, writing in the  Artilleristische Monats Hefts.  In discussing an assertion by the  London Times that the German navy  possesses a gun which carries three  miles further than the best English  weapon, the writer admits that the  Krupps are manufacturing a gun  whose projectile weighs T20 kilograms  (about a ton) and which develops a  muzzle velocity of 940 metres (about  3,080 feet) a second.-  The experts reckon from these figures that the gun has 58 per cent,  more muzzle force than the British  navy's best weapon, and has a range  of about 42 kilometres (.about 26  miles), while the Channel at Dover is  only 33 kilometres (about 20.5 miles)  wide. He says it will permit the Germans eventually to command , the  English coast from Calais for a distance of nine kilometres (about o.'J  miles inland) with the new gun.  Secret of Sea Power-is Big Guns and  ' Lots of Them  Interesting deductions made from  the battle oil' the coast of Chile on November 1, where the British cruisers  Good Hope and Monmouth were sunk  by the German squadron under Admiral Von Spee, and the later battle,  off the' Falklands, when British Avar-  ships under Admiral Sturdee sunk  four out of live of Von Spee's ships,  ���������appear in- the London Engineer of December 3 8. As already pointed out in  the Army and Navy Journal, the Engineer reached the conclusion that it"  is the big gun power .and speed that  has told thus far in naval duels. The  Engineer says, in part:  "Little-by little, as one naval action,  foliaws another, light is being thrown  on the. various war problems that have  been discussed in time's of peace. A  few big facts are beginning to stand  out and the lesser fry are gradually  taking their proper place in the picture. Early- events, notably the loss  of the three cruisers gave ''.-undue  weight to the submarine. For a time  it seemed that Admiral Bacon's theories were about to be justified. Then  came the unfortunate action off Chile,  followed by: the glorious one off the  [Falklands: The destruction of the  I Emden by the Sydney is another case  in point. The. Sydney's guns overbore the small pieces of tire Emden.;  "Given the fact that two ships can  get within range of each other, that  ( which is able to throw the biggest  shell will win. Smaller guns, even  six inch, seem to be,of little import-'  ance, where bigger pieces come into  play and we shall have to revise all  our old theories about the value of  weight of metal in a broadside. "Thus  Sir Philip: Watt's design of the drea'd-  iiPviight is fully justified. "A dread-  naught should' be able to fight an action without firing anything less than  her main armament. Her big' guns  would- destroy her opponent without  any help from the secondary piecos.  It is'calibre .-.'that,, counts , and in  estimating the value of-fighting  ships in the future we shall have to  consider the primary armament only.  Whether the smaller pieces will be  useful for the repulsion of mosquito  light vessels remains to be seen. It is  one of the things that war has yet to  teach us. So far, in the only two actions of importance in this connection,  the "smaller vessels have been told  to clear off as quickly as possible and  leave the contention to the big ships.  "Small vessels have not made a  concerted action on a big ship, and the  light guns have not been tried on the  particular duty for which they were  intended. It must, however, be observed that if two battleships engage  they can so pound:each other with  their huge shells that there is little  probability of a 6-inch gun being left  available for service even after a brief  engagement.. In all likelihood one or  other of the vessels would be knocked out. and set on fire, and if not  sunk, would be at the mercy of any  smaller craft that chose to give her  the coup de grace. The conflagration  caused by shell is a matter of much  moment, of which we expect to 'hear  a great deal when t-the war is over.  Everything points in the same direction; the big gun���������that i3, a gun bigger than anything your opponent has  ���������is master of the situation. The  secret of sea power, numbers apart,  is big guns and lots of them, on fast  ships."  MILITARY TEACHINGS ARE DOWNRIGHT SAVAGERY  Manual of the Usages of War on  Land,  Issued  by  the  General  Staff'   of   the   German   Army,   Justifies    Assassination,  Incendiarism and any means to Accomplish the End '  Prof. J. I-J. Morgan has. translated  into English "The German War  Book," the manual of the usages of  war on land issued by the general  staff of the German army, the most  authoritative,work of its kind in Germany.1 There is a reference in the introduction to "humanitarian considerations, which do not infrequently degenerate into sentimentality and flabby emotion." One passage is the following: ���������������������������'.���������.-. -'...���������.:���������.  "War conducted with energy cannot  be directed merely against the com-  i batants of an. enemy state and the  positions they occupy, but it will and  must destroy the total intellectual and  material resources of the latter."  The Daily : Chronicle, which publishes a review: of Prof. Morgan's  translation, says that after what has  happened in Belgium there is cruel  irony in the destruction of churches,  schools, libraries and musuems which  should be spared, and declares that  open towns ought not to be bombard-  ���������ed." .-���������':"-::���������'.:--/V :: !,'...':-.:" '���������'���������  According to this German war book,  assassination ���������and incendiarism are, in:  given .circumstances, justifiable, as  will be seen by the following quotations.  "The bribery of the enemy's-subjects for the ^ of 'obtaining  military advantages, the acceptance  of the offers of treachery, the recep-'  tion of, deserters, the utilization of  discontented elements in the population, the support of pretenders, and  the like, are permissible.  "Indeed, international law is in no  way opposed to the exploitation ~6������  crimes of- third parties, assassination,  iucendiarism, robbery and the like, to  the prejudice of the enemy.   *  ";','.  "The necessary aim of war gives :o  a    belligerent the right and imposes  "Bow is it," inquired a young bride  of an older married friend, "that you  always manage to have such, delicious  beef?"  "it's very simple," said the older  woman. "I first select a good, honest  butcher,  and  then I stand  by  him.''  "You mean that you give him all  of your trade?"  "No; I mean that I stand by him  while he is cutting the meat."  Problem of Germany  .Will   Soon  be   How to  Find   Men  for  Army, in View of Losses  The Army Bulletin, in commenting  upon the German losses in the war,  declares that a greater part of the  original regiments must hava been reorganized. The Bulletin asserts that  from August 2 until the beginning of  ���������December the German army lost approximately 2,000,000 men, and since  that time there have been the battles  in Poland. Admitting that 500,000  wounded would be-able to return to  the firing line, the Bulletin says that  the definite ]oss, therefore, may be  estimated at nearly 1,500,00'!  men.  Without doubt, says the Bulletin,  Germany has an enormous number of  men in reserve, but these reserve are  already'being drawn upon and are not  inexhaustible, even incorporating the  classes of the youngest men, from 17  to 20 years of age, and those between  20 and 40 : oars of age whose cervices  were dispensed with in times of  peace. Germany's appeals, it is add-.  ed, will be unable to furnish actually \  over 2.000,000. The more Germany  forms new units, the more will she  diminish the ge.ieral value of her  army, aiuLhasten the moment when  there, will be an end. to her resources.  upon him, according to circumstances,  the duty not to let slip the important,  it may be the decisive, advantages, to  be gained by such means."  According to the Germans an i'nvad-  or can compel a man to betray his  country.    Tho manual says:  "The view that no inhabitant of occupied territory can be compelled to  participate directly in the struggle  against his own, country, is subject to  an exception by the general usages  of war which must be recorded here  ���������the calling up and employment of  inhabitants as guides on unfamiliar  ground. However much it may ruffle  feeling to compel a man to harm his  own Fatherland, and indirectly to  fight his own troops, none the less no  army operating in an enemy's country  will altogether renounce the expedient.  "But a still more severe measura  the compulsion of inhabitants to furnish information , about their ��������� own  army,' its strategy, its resources, and  its military secrets. The majority of  all writers of all nations~are unanimous in their condemnation of this  measure: Nevertheless, it cannot be  entirely dispensed'.with. Doubtless It  will be applied- with regret, but the  argument of war will frequently make  it necessary."/ ." . ���������  The manual severely prohibits looting, and says . that movable private  property is to be treated as inviolable.  Among the questions and answers  in the book are:  "Q.���������Should women' and children  and the old and feeble be allowed to  depart before a bombardment begins?"   ..  "A.���������On the contrary, their presence is greatly to be desired. It makes  the bombardment all the more effective."  Would     Have     Heirlooms   and   Other  Articles Given to State to Keep  Up  Needed Supply  The London Daily Chronicle says:  "The marked success which attended  'Imperial Wool Week,' in Germany,  has induced a number of leading journals, including the Hamburger Nach-  richten, to advocate r.n 'Imperial Metal Week,' in which the German nation  will give one more proof of patriotism  by sacrificing superfluous copper, silver and gold ������or the uses of the army  and the state,  "The greater stress would appear  to bo laid on copper. The possessors  of valuable bronze and copper articles  of artistic beauty, or articles regarded  as heirlooms, are told that it would  be foolish to part with those things  as long as the melting pot can be  filled with more prosaic and common  things.  "If every household'in the empire  contributed only one pound of copper  there would be available 5,000 tons.  Silver is also greatly needed. There  are tons of inartistic table silver of  modern and vulgar design which  might well go into the melting pot or  the mint.  "With regard to gold, the Hamburger paper warmly supports the suggestion that wedding rings be exchanged  bv their wearers for rings made of  iron. The idea is put forward that,  as iron rings must not prove attractive to some ladies, diamonds and  other precious stones might be taken  from gold rings and set in iron ones. I  THE BELGIAN BOYS  ..WIGHT SHELLS  Pick Up Pieces of Hot Metal and Offer  Them   as   Souvenirs  The United Press'staff correspondent writes: At Rheims, while lunching, I sent the 12 years old son of  the hotel proprietress across, the  street to buy some postcard pictures  of the badly damaged town. While he  was making Ihe selection, a German  shell fell and exploded almost in the  middle of the street, making an infernal racket. A few minutes later  the lad returned witli the postcards.  Was he out of breath and all eagerness to tell the strange foreigner  about the shell which had fallen near  him?   Not at all.  "I'm sorry, sir," he said, qui.e as he  would have done had he merely waited for a street car to pass instead of  the smoke of a shell to-clear up, "they  are out of cathedral cards. Perhaps I  can find you some down the street,  there is another place down there."  I thought of the shells and told the  boy to never mind. Think of it! A  boy so used to shells falhng in his  street that they have ceased ;o be a  subject for comment.  Later on, on that same day, a small  boy in the streets of RLeim,s brought  me a piece of slu-i;, still hot, which  had fallen near him. Being of the  gamin type, with wits sharpened beyond his years, he i.sked me if I would  care to buy Lis piece of hot shell as a  souvenir.  Then there was another bo;. This  youngster paraded past the cathedral  at the height of the bombardment  while from various quarters near him  came Jhe s-h-e-e-e-c-e-e of big shells  f.r i tlie bang of Heir explosion loud  as the keenest crack of lightning. He  carried between his two hands a pan  of milk which he balanced more gingerly, taking very s'.ort teps to keep  from jarring ihe liquid over the pan's  edges. He was well dressed and  clean looking and his fac-s was the  rose-pink of well-c'.rcd-fo.' hoys, boys  adored of their mothers.  S-h-h-e-e-e-e-e-e ! A .������������������hell hissed  obstructively overhead. Bang! came  the explosion not more than two  squares from the boy with the milk.  He stopped. Looked around .*.s if to  see if he was being watched. Then he  slowly raised the pan to his lips and  took a little drink. Just as slowly, he  lowered it and began his careful  march homeward, rast tha s'atue of  Jeanne D'Arc and th . House of God  and on down in the direction of the  canal.  Two minutes after he had passed  the statue, a shell came direc'.l;* between the towjrs of the cathdraJ,  barely cleared the head of the Maid of  Orlean's horse and tore a great hole  in the Belgian blocks 30 feet i������- front.  At the moment the boy was having  further refreshments from his pan.  "Vou're going to lose that milk if  you don't mind," I said to the lad from  my position in a doorway. He had  not seen me before and h-; looked up  sheepishly realizing he had been  caught cheating mother. Then he  grinned a perfectly honest wholesome  grin and replied with a good little  devil look out of tlie corner of his  blue eyes:  The last I.saw ol him he was taking  gingerly steps homeward with a pan  less full, but fuller stomach, utterly  unafraid.  Four Are  With   Indian  Expeditionary  Force   in   France,  and  One  in  Egypt  No  less  than  rive    ruling    Indian  princes are at the prese:.*; time on active  service  with-the  British  army,  all  of whom  belong    to  the  Rajput  race,  famous   as   the  great  fighting,  land  owning and  ruling caste of India, and from which a large proportion   of   the   recruits   for  the   Indian  army of today  are  drawn. Four    of  these, the Maharajas of Bikaner, Kis-  hanagarh,   Jodhpur   and   Sir   Pertab  Singh,  are  with  the    Indian  expeditionary forces in France, the fifth, the  adopted son and successor of Sir Pet-  tab Singh as ruler of Idar, is.serving  in Egypt.   Col. Sir Uanga Singh, Bahadur of  Bikaner,  has served outside  his own country in command of his  renowned camel corps, on many previous     occasions,   and  was  recently  gratified to receive from General Sir J.  G. Maxwell a message appreciative of  the signal service the camel corps has  already rendered in Egypt.  In a recent interview given in London during Christmas leave, to a  Times' representative, the Maharaja,  who is an extra A.D.C. to Sir John  French, expressed on behalf of the  ruling princes of India their keen  sense of the duty which lies upon  them to assist their king-emperor with  every means at their disposal, and  their recognition of the absolute necessity of British participation in the  war. The loyalty of the Indian people, increased by the wise and sympathetic policy of Lord Hardiuge, the  viceroy, was such that he had no  doubt that a large proportion of the  army could safely be withdrawn from  India. He paid a high tribute to the  services of Aga Khan in maintaining  the loyalty of the. Indian Moslems in  face of what lie described as "Turkey's suicidal action."  Referring to his experiences in  China M years ago during the Boxer  outbreak, tlie Maharftja said that he  was then pained and astonished by  tlie ruthless methods of the Germans;  during tiie time he had been in'  France lie linn seen heart-rending  evidence of equally terrible cruelty  on their part, authenticated accounts  of which had stimulated the desire of  the Indian peoples for the victory of  the Allies. The Maharaja also gave  high praise to the courage and cheerfulness oi' the British and . Indian  troops amid ihe discomforts of tho  Ireneiips, often knee deep in water.  These were especially trying to soldiers accustomed to operations in  mountainous regions, and he was  proud of the hearty admiration which  had br-cn expressed on all sides for  the Intrepidity f.nd resourcefulness of  his fellow countrymen under such  adverse conditions.  Dublin Castle has been opened as  a completely equipped hospital, and  for tiie duration of the war it has  been placed at the disposal of the Red  Cross by the generosity of Lord  Aberdeen. "Now, when there is only  a United Ireland," says the Manchester Guardian, "is a particularly good  time for Lord Aberdeen to have dono  the wisest thing which any viceroy-  has ever done with Dublin Castle, by  giving It a national mission in which  all Irishmen share equally,".  \  IBMBMMMaBIBWBS*^^  jajaawiMmi^^ .magg THE   SUJY,    GRAND   FORKS,   B.

A little later another voice shouted:  ���������'Sink him with a submarine."  Finally, after fully an hour, the  attorney-general launched into hi?  speech whether he was heard or j  not. He was detailing the history of  the compensation for'workmen and  remarked that the first, country to  take it up was Germany, when  somebody exploded with, "Kaiser  Bill," ��������� '     '���������  The history of the bill was continued by the speaker, .who told  about the countries and states that  had taken it up. His remarks were  baited once more with. "Tell us  'about it in B. C."  "It is hardly necessary for me to  explain���������" again commenced the  worried speaker. Another interruption,. "No, no."  Thus it went, back and forth.from  the atlorney general to the audiencp,  and back to him again until some  body shouted, "Tie up the bull,"  which caused the attorney general's  severe countenanca to relax in spite  of his determination to put on a  brave face. He explained he had  been accused of many things before  but never of peddling the bull. He  then took another tack and tried to  jollv his hearers. They listened for  bit, then broke forth again with  cutting remarks.

He struck another snag with the  sentence, "The man that gets hurt is  compensated���������" Here a voice fairly  shrieked: "How about that boy  who died in jail?"  Thus it continued, not one hut  many voices heckling the attorhev  general, who bore it as long as he  could, and he was trying for a pe  roration that could be hVard and  understood when a long .mournful  'note was struck again and off the  crowd went with, "We'll hang old  Bowser to a sour apple tree."  This was almost too much,-and  the ettorney-general 'began "In all  my political career���������"  "Start over again, Bill," snapped  some one.  Once again the speaker launched  forth to be met with this time, "The  second chapter accoiding to Bowser."  Still again the intrepid leader of  the Tories got a start on his compensation act, when the crowd became uprorious with the sally, "S'y,  will it compensate the eye wot's  looking* for work?"  That it was the intention of the  government to send a commission to  find outhowthe plan has worked in  other places,came an assurance from  the speaker, and he- promised one  should be from the Trades and Labor council.
