A start had been made to ���������do  some . grading-on Victoria avenue.  He was undecided whether it would  be advisable to do anything at pres  ent .with the fill across the North  tork, near Dr. Averill's   residence.  ��������� It would -'be difficult, he seid, to  " secure" material]with which to make  ��������� ���������" tliis fill, 'buVheHhought' that about  ''"^onehalf".

Permission, subject to the decision  of the council,--bad been given Mr.  Laiseh to build a concrete trough in  front of his hotel. Numerous complaints had been made to him about  stock running at iarge .in the city.  As long  as  this  state of affairs ex  - isttd there was no encouragement  for. the citizens to'beautify their  premises. He was of tbe opinion  that owners of stock should be held  leaponsible for the damage done by  the animals. Complaints had -also  been made by retidents in the neigh  borhoed-jn aecount of there being  no gate to "tie nuisance grounds.  He had investigated the matter and  had found that the gate had bten  missing for two years. He was in  structed lo have it replaced by a  new one.  The elerk was instructed to look  up the law regarding the responsibility of owners of stock, and to  warn them through the local press  The, chairman of the health and  .relief committee reported that Mr.  McDonald's shack had been dam  aged by the recent fire in Columbia.  He was instructed to have the same  repaired.

The health officer had  signi-  . fied his willingness to comply with  the request of the'council in respect  to milk tests and inspection of  dairies.  - Tbe chairman of the water and  light committee stated that he  would like* the council to set the  hours for lawn sprinkling.' There  were four or'five parties' who weie  served by an inch pipe, consaquent  - ly had an insufficient water supply,  and he recommended that these be  given an extra hour in the morning  and evening.  On motion of Aid. Bickerton and  Bonthron, the same hours as last  year were adopted, i.e., from 6 a.m.  to 9 a in, and from 5 p m. to 9 p. in.  On motion of Aid. Bonthron, it  was decided to-allow the people with  an insufficient water supply an additional hour each morning and  evening, but on request of the chair-  'rrian of the water and light commit-  ,tee the names, of those entitled to  this privilege" will be withheld until the next meeting.  The city clerk reported that he  had completed the assessment roll,  and on motion it was accepted, subject to" corrections - by tbe court of  revision. On raotiQn of Aid.

SUNRISE SIGNALS  A hotel man a few days rebuked  an old man for renouncing the  Tory machine. "I do not see," said  he, "that you have any cause to  complain against the local Conserva  live candidate. Is not.your son and  his team employed on the government roadp and is henot drawing  $7 a day for that work?" "True,"  replied the old gentleman; "hut if  we had an honest Liberal government that work would have to he  done anyway, and my s >n would  stand an equal chance with the  other men of the community of get-  ing some of it" The old man's  reasoning was all right as far. as it  went. But he might haveas-ked his  questioner what proportion of the  money expended on road work is  paid into the public treasury by the  Conservative.-1, and what quota  by the Liberals; how much of it  came out of the pockets of the Conservative candidate, and how much  from the .Liberal candidate; if the  Liberals had always received all  they were entitled to. This incident  is interesting merely from the fact  that during the past few days, for the  first time in the.history.of the district, a few persons who do not  claim Conservativism as their political creed have been given employment-on the government roads.  It is one of the machine's methods  of attempting to bribe the electorate  with the people's money.  The Sun has received the first  issue of The Victorian, a new weekly  paper established in the capital-city  by F. E. Simpson, formerly of the  Cranbrook  Herald.    The news and  The E-iderby Pre-*s is -a* strongly  Conservative "pa per, and its'editor is  one of the officials of the Enderby  Conservative association,''hence: an  editorial in its last issue, under the  caption "Facts We" Must Face,"  may be taken to reflect ihe. feelings  of a number 'of Conservatives in  North Okanagan who'are dissatisfied  with decision-reached by the rtcent  nominating convention held at Vernon. Much space is also given to  Basil Gardom, who published a  lengthy statement in reference to  Price Ellison's cattle deal with the  Colony farm,- and it isevident that  the sympaties of the Press are with  Mr. Gardom. The following is the  ediforial:  Before the Conservative convention  iu the Northern Okanagan was held,  it was stated by those who professed  to be in a position to know, that the  Hon. Price' jfllison had a good case  and when the time came he would be  able to fully   explain the Colony farm  editorial pages are not devoid of in  terest, but the advertising columns  plainly indicate that war conditions  still prevail- t the coast. The name  of the paper brings hack unpleasant  recollections to The .Sun man from  tbe misty past. In hisyouth, before he ha 1 .learned in the school of  experience tint all. or nearly all,  men are liars, he was implicated in  the publication of the' Weekly Victorian in Victoria. It required four  able bodied men to get out that  Seven columh, four page page paper.  Even at that, the force w-is too -mall,  because three of them were too  proud to work. This unequal distribution of lab >r could have but  one result. After ..a month the  writer made his' partners a present  of his fourth interest in the. paper  The obituary notice of the paper  was printed shortly after we volun-  tinly severed our connection with  it. This was our initial flyer in  journalism. It exhau-ted our hank  roll, and to get out of Virtoria we  gave our uncle temporary possession  of a two hundred dollars timepiece.  Our faith hnsj never been strong  enough to attempt to walk upon the  water. We.hope that Mr. Simnmin  and his new Viitoiian will h.v-  better success  The Sun nor ices that a local man  has made the boast that last week  he smoked the first cigar manufactured in Grand Forks. This assertion shows a lamentable ignorance  of Grand Forks history, and is at  the same time a. covert attempt to  rob The Sun man of a glorious distinction that has haloed his brow  for a decade. Tbe first cigar manufactured in Grand Forks was made  by Dan Schnoter ten years ;'go, and  The Sun smoked it. Some people  have to be informed when they are  behind the times.  Not all the Conservatives take  kindly to the war tax stamps. A  prominent local Conservative, after  purchasing a liberal supply of them  last Saturday, showed them .to The  Sun man���������who happened to be in I  the post at the time���������and remarked:  "I have assisted the federal govern-,'  ment to , buy some more spavined  horses."  cattle deal in a way that would clear  hiin of any charges that might bo  made against him. It was further-said  that Mr. Ellison purchased the cattle  from a printed price list available to  any prospective buyer to see, and that  others' had purchased Colony farm  stock from the same price list at figures as low as those said to have been  paid by Mr. Ellison All of which  put a different phase" on the question  and made the transaction look to be  nothing worse than.an error in judgment���������a transaction that should not  have been entered into, bub one which  showed no intent to deceive or to take  something that-was, not really bought  and paid for.  * But in his public explanation on the  political platform- in Enderby on the  evening of April 6, Mr. Ellison did  not state anything of the kind, and  offered no such defence. On the con-  tra.iy, what he did say in his defence  forbids the acceptance of any such  statement as based upon .fact, and  makes the cattle transaction look a  hundredfold worse than when it first  came out.  We do not wish to enlarge upon  this cattle deal. It is not a pleasaut  topic to dwell upon But it is here  and must be met. The party leaders  in Vernon may stick their heads in  the sand aud tell us Mr. Ellison's explanation is sufficient, that his position is "unassailable," and all that,  but the people of the Northern Okanagan,- and the province, do not appear to feel that way about it. Mr.  Ellisdn's position is not "unassailable "  It is, indeed, decidedly assailable.  And it looks to us if the Conservatives of the Okauagan do not take a  firm stand against such dealings-by  the honoied lepresentatives of the  "party, as explained by Mr. Ellison  h'uaself, then the" party can nor. long  "continue to command the respact of  the voters. It is more to the ^credit  of the party that-'the ugly facts in  connection with this case were brought  out by-life long Conservatives than it  would be had the fa :ts been smothered  and up and the showing up been left  to our Liberal friends  There is much more in this case  than" the mere fact- that Mr. Ellison  got some very fine registered Holstein  oattle for little or nothing. This is  not the question at all. We must  face the real question, which is much  larger, involving as it does the great  issue of fidelity to the people's inter  ests. It has been said that Basil Gar  dora is fighting this case in Mr. Elli  son's home riding because of personal  feeling against Mr. Ellison. We have  known Mr. Gardom a" number of  years and can not -take this view of  the contest. When provincial constable in Enderby some years ago,  Mr. Gardom exhibited the same  spirit in rooting out crime, and he  had no personal feeling in the matter  at all  Mr.    Ellison, s    public   explanation  was lame, and lays him open to much  worse criticism than he   has   received  from any quarter      He said   that  the  cattle A ere culls;   not   good   for anything;  nod the cattle he  expected   to  receive, and the whole   transaction an  unprofitable   ono.     If   .Mr.   Ellison  moans thut it was unprofitable in view   js  of what   has   subsequently  come out Ljuejn���������  against him, he is no  doubt   correct.  It was unprofitable not alone   to   Mr,  Ellison but to the Conservative   party  as well.    But   this   is   not the point  Mr. Ellison seems to make.     He   ap-  pareutly   believes,   and    would have  others believe, that because he did not  mako as much money out of the trans  action as he expected, it is not a serious matter to the party or the people.  It   is   just   hero   where  Mr. Ellison  makes   his  gravest   error.    If   those  cattle   winch   cost   the  people  $400,  and 8300, and $250 apiece, were   not  good enough for Mr. Ellison  at  825,  and $50, nnd $75, what more   did   he  want for his   money?    Did   he expect  the great Holstein bulls on the Colony  farm to be thrown in with    the   cows  they   had   served   before  Mr. Ellison  got them'?    If he expected   more  than!  he got, how much did he expect? j  Another point of weakness in   Mr. ,  Ellison's defence is the   fact  that  lie j  attempted  to throw the responsibility j  of   trii!    transaction   upon tho Colony >  ( Coiitlnnrd on f'a'jc ���������'/���������)  1  LEG CUT Off  Fred, the eight-year old son of  Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Galipeau, had  a.narrow escape from instant death  about 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon.  As it was, ibe accident ended quite  seriously," the boy having bis left foot  cut off three inches below the knee  by a Great Northern passenger train.  On his way home from school  the boy attempted to cross the  Great Northern tracks at the freight  sheds just as the afternoon passenger  train was backing into the station.  His.foot caught in a frog of one of  the switches, and he was held a  prisoner. Unable to- extricate himself, he waved his hands frantically  at the brukeman on the rear platform of the approaching tram, hut  the man did not understand him.  When within a car's length of the  boy, however, the brakeman noticed  that he wa3 h������ Id fast in the frog and  pulled the bell-cord, but it was then  too late to stop. As the train approached, the boy had presence of  mind enough to throw himself on  the outside of the rail, and thus escaped death with the loss of a limb.  The foot was terribly crushed and  mangled.  The boy was conveyed to the hos  pital with all possible haste and  placed under the care of Dr. Tomp-  sett. It was found necessary to  amputate the limb three inches below the knee. The boy is at present reported to be cheerful and  doing splendidly, though rather  weak from loss of blood.  6. C, Copper Statistics  The report of the British Columbia Copper company for 1914, jur-t  issued, shows a decrease of S993.340  in the returns from shipments, as  compared with 1913, the receipts for  the period having been $911,355 as  against 81,904,695 for the previous  fiscal period. Operating expense.-*  were 8788,685, as against $1,424^-  298, a decrease of 8635,613, and the  custom ore purchase declined $206,-  065, the amount being 8162,435, as  against $368,500 The British Col  unibia company practically suspended operations the last half of  191J-, the nsult of depressed metal  prices, but it is developing its properties, particularly tho-e at Voigt  camp, acquired several months ago  under bond from Euiil Voigt, and it  anticipated that it will be pro-  soon at normal capacity.  Plans have been prepared for a smelter lo treat the output of the mines  under development, in addition to  he plant at Greenwood.

THE    SUN,   GRAND   FORKS,   B. C,  Farmers and  Business Men  Both Interests Could Profitably Get  Together For Their Mutual  Advantage  At the conference for education in  the south at Louisville last April  there was a discussion of the subject,  "Will the growth of Farmers' Co-operative Associations bo d'sadvaniageous  to business interests?" The discussion was opened by Mr. Jlarry I-Jodg-  Hon of Athens, Ga., and throughout  the argument he spoke always of  farmers and business men as opposing factors in the economic struggle.  When Dr. John Leo Coulter, head of  the agricultural division of the cen-  bus bureau, answered Mr. Hodgson,  his one argument m^s that farmers  were business men, and that while  boine of them were poor business  men, on the whole, they averaged as  well in business ability a.s men in  other occupations.  Dr. Coulter's argument was not  cily unanswerable, but it seemed to  remove something that was menacing  it inspired a feeling of good-will, and  established "a working basis for a  new and different relation between  business men of all occupations. Is  not the time' ripe for the development  of this attitude? Cannot we drop  .out of sight this purely imaginary  line between business men and farra-  -ers and'all work together for the upbuilding of-the* country districts without which there can be no prosperity  for the body politic.-.whether city or  ' country?   * . '    ���������     -   ,.    -  The- secretary of the Illinois  Bankers' association told me that he  found upon investigation that every  'county in Illinois which did not have  " a large town or city iu it lost in population during the last1 decade. The  decrease of population in our rural  districts, the increase in tenancy, the  disproportion of the ratio of increase  between our food production, only 11  per cent., and population, 21 per  cent., should make every thinking  man and woman demand a definite  working program for the organization  of rural communities.  May I make one or two suggestions  along this line, borrowed from my  experiences in various parts of the  United States and Europe? Let all  business- men's clubs, boards of trade,  etc., in the towns and cities drop the  discrimination against farmers and  ask them to become members of their  organization.  I found in Franklin Tennessee, a  business men's club of 300 members  which had added 250 farmers to its  membership. They have built a  comfortable 'club house and the sectary wrote me, "It is" a common sight  to see a large number .' farmers  and business men chatting or playing  games on Saturday afternoons, and  on Sundays the farmers come to the  club to brush up before going to  church." I only heard' of this club  house as it neared completion and I  asked, "Is it one or two stories?"  "Only one." "Why didn't you make  it two and provide a rest room for  the women?" "We never thought of  it!" But later the secretary wrote  me that cooperating with one of the  women's clubs they had made provisions for the worn-n elsewhere.  Shortly after this when visiting  Maryville, Tennessee, I" called upon  the president of the board of trade. I  found him a thoroughly wide-awake  and broad-minded man. He was the  manager of the Electric Light Company and a large farmer. I told him  of what the men at Franklin had  done. He immediately said that he  would present the matter of taking in  the farmers as members at the next  LIGHT/DRAFT  SEE ONE Al  THE DEALER'S  Made in  Canada For Canadian Conditions  SEVERE ECZE  Itched Badly.

Then suddenly he exclaimed, "Will you come across the street  with me?" There in the rear of a  new bank building was a~largc unused  room opening on the side street. .It  was light and airy, the walls were  tinted green and it had a well equipped toilet room. -'���������Would this make  a good rest room for. the women?"  "Excellent," I exclaimed. "Well, we  will have it ready before the Chautauqua opens in two weeks." And he  was as good as his word.  If the bankers, merchants and  farmers would unite in one business  men's clubs in-each town and village,  and would provide the opportunity for  the women to meet also, Ave would  soon have organizations that could  find agencies to attack the rural problem adequately. You ask th.-ougi  what agencies this attack corid.be  best made. The great agency toy  rural organization.in Europe has  been the country' school teacher.  Housed in a home beside the,school  house, or; often schoolv and., home* are"  one building,' with sufficient ground  to furnish all his family needs,*- the  teacher is a permanent, member, of  the community, the .natural"leader'in  better, methods of cultivating the soil,  and in the organization for marketing  the produce, arid for securing co-operative, credit. . The "teaching's", should,  take its place beside every, country  school, and should become the centre  of a now life in the country.  A second great agency for rural  organization has been provided .by  the Smith-Lever bill. This ought to  make it possible for every county ,to  have a man as farm demonstrator "and  a .woman demonstrator of home economics. The cduni.es which ". have  these workers are rapidly * forging  ahead.   -  The third great agency should be  the health departments of each of  our counties. Our vital statistics  show iis the great need of organization in rural districts-' for better  health conditions. The proportion" of  deaths in the open country being  greater than in many of our large  cities. The American Hed Cross association- among its many agencies  has a rural department for training  and placing nurses in the rural districts. A well organized community-  league could work with this association and its county health officer in  securing a trained nurse for its district, who might live in the teacher-  age and co-operate with the school  teacher.  A fourth great agency for better  living in the country is the rural department of Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A.  Religious division and a multiplicity  of churches with absentee pastors is  keeping the rural districts divided  and often antagonistic, but the undenominational and well trained Christian-Association worker could lead in  a new religious life and also organize  the recreation of the district; for  without proper recreation and amusement our young people will not remain , in  the  country  With these four agencies���������the  teacher, the agricultural and home  economics demonstrator, the nurse,  and the Christian Association organizer, working in a district with a  teacherage, or school home, as a centre could We not soon^ hope for a  very different life in the community?  Would not the organization of bankers, merchants and farmers in each  -.county seat into.' a business men's  club, or a chamber of commerce and  agriculture, form a strong body which  could do much toward securing these  agencies for each district in the  county?���������Lillian Wycoff Johnson, iii  The Banker-Farmer."  Pointers on Handling Butter  Vaccination Efficacious  Cases of Typhoid Fever Reduced to a  Minimum  Among  British  Cold-  iers in French Trenches  Sir Frederick Treves, in a recent  address delivered at London, says the  Pittsburg Dispatch, described the results of typhoid vaccination on the  British forces now in the field as  "positively astounding." During more  than five months of active service,,  most of it in the trenches and unde/  conditions likely to generate enteric  disease, there had been but 212 cases  of typhoid among the British forces.  Of these, 17o had not been inoculated.  That is to say, only thirly-nine inoculated soldiers had been attacked by  the disease and "not a single death  had occurred among thoso inoculated."  There are now probably a million  British soldiers in field and camp.  What share of these have been vaccinated against typhoid is not stated.  But with such favorable statistics it  is not reasonable to presume that the  vaccinations have been used in the  majority of the cases. The frightfully unsanitary conditions of the French  battlefields have been the subject of  many despatches. That under such  circumstances the anti-typhoid inoculation should reduce the disease to  thirty-nine cases and no deaths certainly argues very great virtues for  that precaution.  The experience of the United States  army in the same line corroborates  this showing. But the United States  army has not been subjected to any  such severe test as the British in  their recent campagin. After this for  any civilized power to suffer severe  losses from typhoid will indicate a  conspicuous neglect of effective precautions.  Some Good Advice Given Farmers Engaged in Dairying  Prof. Mitchell  addressing a creamery and dairy convention on' thefini-  portant   subject   of  grading    butter  cream and also cow testing, said the  confidence of the produce merchants  had been gained by the improvement  j in the systems of grading butter and  [ they were now prepared to store in  [large quantities for winter use.   This  j will  relieve the market at a critical  time and have the effect of steadying  prices.     The   more   important  points  were the grading of butter and safeguarding the creamery.  Transportation . was important as  sometimes butter was handled negligently, one case coming before 'the  lecturer's notice,- where the butter  was carried -in a car -\vhicn had been  used for coal, and tne. particles* had"  got all into the butter.  Don't short weight on consignments. See that the-client gets the  weight specified. At the same time  don't throw* away the st-uft' by overweight. ' '  'Parchment paper was one cause of  mould 'on butter and explicit instructions were handed but how to treat  the  papers'.        - -- ���������  Salt was' an important factor-in  lasting butter. It must be kept dry  and clean.-' ,One case of neglect was  where salt was kept in a-place^ near  hides and'the salt had absorbed ' the  odor ofthe hides. *���������;'"���������  . - Some creameries in the fall, Prof.  Mitchell said, could be used as fattening stations for chickens.  ' Tlie outstanding feature in handling butter was that all appliances  used must be scrupulously clean,  otherwise unsatisfactory results develop.  Aim to Increase the ^ Average Yield  By Better Cultivation, Better Seed Selection and Rotation  of Crops, a Higher Average Yield will be Secured  (From The Banker-Farmer)  ' Tbat is the most important truth for the American farmer'to krow an<S  put in practice, lie must not be alarmed by the bogey, "the higher ihfc  yield, the greater the cost, not only per acre but also per bushel"���������whicb  does not apply to a farming .condition .wherein the farmer has not begun  to get the natural yield of an honestly-treated farm.  Our general farming has not reached���������and,will not reach.in our generation���������the point where we need to be concerned with'this ultimate rule.

Joy of Ownership  A  Little  Land   For   Everyone,  Be  it a  Farm  or a   Garden   Plot  Society recognizes that land may  be put to other uses than to agriculture and to the making of homes. It  sets aside reservations for parks,  pleasure grounds and the protection  of wild life. We no longer question  the value of this use of the surface  of the earth. And yet these areas are  available to the people only as visitors���������they may wander through, sit in  certain' specified .places, admire but  not touch, -follow the formal> lines;  and in the. big reservations in-the far  places they may perhaps secure permission to-camp. This regulation is  necessary for these places, but these  places  are by no means-sufficient.  A person never gets the most from  his contact with the earth unless he-  owns a bit of it/and has-the -'igtit  and privilege to manipulate it���������land  in which he may dig, on ���������whic'.i'.Jie  may- plant trees and then implant,  them if so he shall desire, from'which  he may gather flowers "in s'prin-j.-aiTi  r-.uts^ in the autumn, on which he  may build cabins, and w*he *e. l'or; a  few week's or days in a year he mdy  do'as he ."will freevfrom conventionalisms and with ho obligation, to "im-  prove" the property. It Svoul-T. be an  immense gain to society if its organization were siich that every person  could look forward to the real ownership of a bit of the earth. Ownership, of land identifies a man with a  program in life, steadies him,''and .it  should also give hini personal joy. It  is just this longing .that is now expressed in the widespread back-to-'  the-farm movement. But most city  persons are not qualified to be farmers, yet it should be possible for them  to own a parcel of.land without the  obligation to develop a business on  that land, with its burdens, its daily  cares and its financial risks.���������L.

This is the way certain lumber  interests of the northwest are solving  the problem of transportation of raw  timber, for in" contrast to a charge  amounting to $10 per thousand board  feet, which was made a few years ago  for shipment by rail, the cost by this  method is reduced to $1. It does not  only mean lower prices and an immense saving to the consumers, but it  also enables low grades of material,  which otherwise .would represent a  loss, to be placed ou the market  profitably.  In the last few years tweu'ty-nine of  these titanic log barges Jiave been successfully floated to San Diego..In no  case, so far as is known, has any  serious trouble "been experienced; and  in most cases not even a log has been  lost, despjte the fact that the average  length of"tliese rafts is about 700 feet,  the thickness approximately thirty  feet and the breadth amidships fifty  five feet. Between- 4,000,000 and 5,-  000,000 board feet of timber is con  tained  in each one.  Bulletin on Swine  The revival of the swine industry,  especially in the western provinces,  and - its increased importance in all  parts of Canada, -is responsible for  a demand for reliable literature on  the subject. To meet this demand  a new* bulletin, No.-17, "Swine Husbandry in Canada" by Mr. J. B.  Spencer has recently been published  by the live stock branch, c". ipartment  of agriculture, Ottawa. Parts of two  bulletins now out of print have been  revised and reprinted ,and in addition  Cartridges Fired  Readily After Being  Immersed   For   Many   Months  After a hard struggle with a head  wind and a mountain-high sea, which  tossed her about for many long hour's,  the good ship "Grampus"���������a schooner  out of Galveston for Tampico���������foundered off the Texas coast t.bout nine  months ago. -  The crew of the "Grampus',' made a  good fight. No real sailor will give up  his ship to Davy Jones' locker without  resisting to the limit of human endurance. Nevertheless, .the "Grampus"  had to go on the rocks. Her crew got  ashore safely, but in the hold cf the  old craft much treasure was deserted. Part of the cargo consisted of  rifle ammunition. There were metallic  cartridges made by several.American  firms and all of these cartridges went  under for a long salt water bath. The  ."Grampus" was not "a total loss, however. In Tact, it was possible only  a few weeks ago to get into her hold  and take up much of her cargo. The  ammunition, for instance, while the  wooden cases-in which it was packed  had been eaten away by worms during the nine months' soaking, was  brought into Port Aransas to be tested. The officials found that the.'Rein-  ington cartridges, only, fired readily  despite the action of the sea, and  they will be repacked for use.

Like Nearly Every Trouble  Afflicting* Mankind Indigestion is Due to Poor  .    Blood  Almost everybody experiences times  when the    organs    of digestion show  painful  signs    of    weakness. - Some  slight disturbance of the health starts  the trouble; then the patient takes a  dislike to food and dull, heavy pain's  in the abdomen give warning that the  stomach is unable    to   do its proper  work. ��������� Sometimes a false craving for  food  arises;   if  this   is  satisfied   tho  result   is   additional     torture���������flatulence, a drowsy depression, sick hea.1-  ache and  nausea are  common  signs  of indigestion.    The' foolish pv.tetice  of  taking  drastic,   weakening purgatives'at such, times should be avoided.    Indigestion arises from stomach  weakness and the only effectual method of curing the trouble is to strengthen the feeble organs of digestion by  supplying   them   with   richer,   purer  blood.    This-is  the true  tonic treatment, by  which natural method, Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills,  achieve    great  results.    These  pills  make the  rich,  red  blood  needed  to  strengtho'i  the  stomach, thus imparting a healihy appetite   and   curing    indigestion    and  other stomach disorders.    Air.   Thos.  Johnson,  Hemford,  N.S.,  says:   ���������'For  live years I was a great sufferer from  indigestion which wrecked me physically.,   I-suffered"-so  much .than  for  days-at a time I could not attend to  my business.   I had smothering spells,  so  bad  at  times  that  I .was ��������� afraid  to .-lie  down.    I   doctored  aiid  tried  medicines but wjth no benefit.   1 saw  Dr.   Williams'   Pink   Pills" advertised  to cure the trouble and decided to try  them.    I had  not been  taking them  long before I found that I had at last  hit upon the right medicine. The improvement in my health was constant,  and  after I had  used  ten or twelve  boxes I could eat and digest all kinds  of food,  and I  felt physically better  than I  had  done for  years.

A   I  ."*   i /  ? x y  ACCUMULATION OF GOLD  LARGEST IN HISTORY,  Mi  Lloyd George Explains how the Allied  Powers have made  Arrangements to help one Another in the most Expensive  War that has ever been Waged  In a statement explanatory of.the  'arrangement made at the conference  between tho finance ministers of  France and Russia, and himself in  Paris the Rt. Hon. David Lloyd  George told the house of commons  that the expenditures of the allies on  the war would be two billion pounds  sterling ($10,000,000,000) during the  current year, of which Great Britain  was spending more money than were  fcertwb allies.  , The present war, Mr. Lloyd Geoige  isaid, was the most expensive in material,'men and money, that had-ever  been waged.  Great Britain, the chancellor of  the exchequer told the house of com-  , moss, coul'l finance the war for.five  years out- of the proceeds of her  Investments abroad. France was  eble to do so for about two or three  years with something to tpare. Russian, he said, although prodigiously  rich   in   natural resources,   was in a  Right   Hon.   D.   Lloyd   George  different position. Mr. Lloyd George  said it was decided at the conference  of the finance ministers in Paris not  to. issue a joint loan.  ���������The chancellor said thf.t Russia  had increased her productivity from  20 to 40 per cent, by surpassing the  sale of vodka. Russi-, had had special  difficulties in financing her purchases  abroad,  and the same thing had applied to France.  "I am not sure we realize the strain  upon this gallant country," the chancellor of ttic exchequer continued.  "She has.had a larger porportion of  her men in tho field and the enenry  in occupation of tho richest part of  her territory. Nevertheless, the confidence of the French nation strikes  every visitor to Paris. There is to be  seen a calm and sincere courage -supposed to be incompatible, with the  tempermenrof the Celt, and one  hears the general assurance that the  German army* has an much chance of  crushing France as of overrunning'  Mars."  "Each ally must bring -its resources into the common stock," Mr.  Lloyd George continued. "War cannot . be marie under limited liability  principles. The conferenc ��������� dismissed the idea of a joint international  loan, which would have frightened  every Bourse, and iz ha:, been-decided that each*** country should raise  tho money it-needed within its own  territories, so far as conditions allowed. But if help were, needed for  purchases abroad those who had  means "would help to the best of their  power. .The only joint loan would be  with respect to' the advances made  or to be made to the -smaller of the  allied states.  With regard to Russian purchases,  the chancellor -.aid it had been decided that the first ������50,000,000  for this purpot..1 should be raised in  equal amounts on tLe Paris and Lon-'  don'..markets'.-:-'-.Russian treasury bills  to the; amount.of ������10,000,000 'issued  in London in the last few-days had  been "oversubscribed.  .. Mr. "Lloyd. George said there was a  satisfactory amount of gold in London. :"If; however, our gold reserves  fall below a certai**. point���������a pretty  high point���������the ;banks of France and  Russia wilL come to our assistance,"  he remarked. 7 He mentioned incidentally that the allies would have to see  that Belgium did not suffer'when the]  period of restoration and compensation came.     "��������� e  The chancellor laid emphasis on  the fact that the allies "must be, prepared to' contribute proportionately'  to the loans needed * by the states  prepared to join them later as  well as the smaller states now fight-  with the allies. Great Britain, he  said, had advanceu ������32,000,000 for  Russian purchases in Great Britain  and elsewhere and Russia had a credit  of ������40,000,000 , in London. France  also had made advances to Russia for  other similar purchases outside.. of  the Russian empire.  After, alluding to the fact that the  accumulation of gold in Great Britain  was the largest in the history of the  country, Lloyd Georga added that  France and Russia also had accumulated great reserves, which, had been  barely touched during the war. Arrangements had be-n made regarding  purchases by th allied countries in  neutral markets whereby competition  was eliminated, efficiency, was 'promoted-and .delays were-prevented.-.  The Russian  Moral-Triumph  Now Shining Before the World United  in Two Noble Determinations  A note to the Russian budget bill  furnishes a remarkable illustration of  the social and economic advantages  which sobriety���������even compulsory sobriety���������brings to a community.  '- In referring to the effect of the war  on industry, the finance minister says  that except in districts directly affected by the war there has been no sensible "diminution In .the industrial output. The reason given is the increased  productivity of the worker owing to  the suppression of the sale of alcohol.  "This increased productivity has  reached-from thirty to fifty per cent,  and compensates largely for the diminution'in thenumber of workers due  to the call to tho colors."  Assuming that Russian human nature does not differ -materially from  our own���������and judging by Mr. Stuart  Deacon's remark that his mornings  work in the police court of a city  where the selling of drink-is practically unrestricted .was a nightmare  because of the number of cases having  their origin in excessive drinking���������  this increased industrial activity in  Russia is certain to .be accompanied  by a decrease in crime, accident,- disease and mental weakness.  Russia never did a braver thing or  achieved a finer triumph than .when  she abolished the state sale of*alcohol.  By one word tho Czar, who has always been a firm and* earnest advocate of temperance, decreed ' that  never more should the unrestricted  sale of strong drink take' place in his  vast empire..  With the boldness of a righteous  cause the Czar swept away at a stroke  a state income of some .������80,000,000 a  year, and, of course, the chancellor" of  the exchequer had to find this elsewhere. He did so by increasing al-.  most all taxes, from land and houses  to matches and cigarette papers, "and  on the liquors sold .under comprehensive restrictions from three to six  times the former duties'" have been  imposed.  Vodka selling price has bnen raised.-.  to 15s. a gallon, as, against about 6s.  3d.; and the malt excise from 3s. to  7d. a pood to 19s. By means of these  increases a great portion of the deficit is wiped out, some little margin  being left for the economic gains that  always, follow when drink money is  spent on better things.  Whatever Russia may have bean in  the past, she is now shining before  the world .united in two noble-determinations. She has set out to help  her allies in freeing the world from  the- evil domination of .the -horrible  German ideal���������a. cause which the  Greek minister in London, in his remarkable declaration of friendship' fcr  England, described as just and good  for the whole world���������and she is ensuring for her own people a sobriety  which, as well the Czar knows, can  lead only to the attainment of that  democratic freedom wl*Jch can be  kept back no longer when a drinking  people become a thinking people.���������  Liverpool Post.  DESIRE HAS  BEEN CHERISHED  FOR MANY YEARS  Dr.  Eliot,   of  Harvard  University,  says   that Germany has had  ���������   Ambitions to become a World Power since 1870, and has  Ever since been Working to this End  Germans Take Ether  Value of War Dogs  prove    of    Great  Service  to.   French  Army as Messengers  '"'.*���������  Dogs are doing an immense service  with the French army as messengers,  writes a war correspondent.  When- war broke out there was  not a single dog messenger in the  French army, though the Paris police had used them to advantage  But after the Germans invaded  France and numerous villages were  devastated thousands of dogs found  themselves homeless. Many were  picked ��������� i:p as company mascots by  soldiers. *  In their spare time the men  amused themselves by teaching the  dogs to carry knapsacks, canteens  and finally messages from one  trench to another. The dogs not  only had an absolute disregard for  gun and rifle fire, but offered an insignificant target. Then the commanders awoke to their value.  Hundreds were "educated" by a  special army branch, the Institute of  Zoological Psychology. Tlie work  now being done by these dogs is little short of marvelo . They have  been taught to hid3 behind trees upon  the approach of human beings. They  know the difference between a  French and German uniform. They  glide noiselessly through underbrush and in carrying messages always-choose woods, ditches and dry  creek beds. Their hearing is remarkably developed, and it is seldom that  they fall into the hands of tbe  enemy.    Most of ti.em are Airedales.  Naval Losses  at  Captain Pcrsius, the German naval  expert, cannot justify Germayn's  ''war zone'' manifesto by asserting  that Great Britain had already ��������� furnished a precedent by declaring the  North Sea a war zone. Great Britain  did not engage in "submarine warfare" such ai; Aclr.iral von TirpUz  proclaimed. Moreover, the British  admiralty has always given every assistance in i';s power to neutral shipping in the North Sea, going so far as  to furnish pilots to every vessel needing guidance to avoid mined sections.  ���������New York Sun.  Germany's ������������������ Comparative Losses  Sea Far Outnumber That of  Britain  One aspect of Germany's naval  losses has been quite overlooked���������the  serious decrease in personnel which  they have entailed. Taking the official figures of the complements of the  33 units of the German navy which  have been sunk during '' e war .-.nd  deducting those known to have betn  saved, at least 11,000- officers and men  have lots their lives. As the total  effective strength of the personnel of  the German navy before the war  broke out was Jess than S0,000, the  death roll already amounts to about  one-seventh of the whole. Our own  naval death "roll is roughly 5,000, or  only one-thirtieth of the total p'er-  sonnel at the declaration of Avar. The  calling up of reserves and new enlistments have increase-1 both totals, but  the alteration in the proportion makes  the comparison still more favorable to  the British navy. All Germany's losses  have been due to the fortune of war,  while our biggest loss���������that of the  Bulwark���������was the result of an accident which might have happened in  peace times. And, in addition, we  have accounted for eight German  armed merchantmen with a total tonnage of 80,000, whereas (including  the Viknor, vhosf- loss was presumed  bv the admiralty) only two British  armed merchantmc:. have been sunk.  The crews of. these merchantmen and  of the interned German merchantmen  and the cruisers Konigsborg and  Geier have not been included in the  foregoing comparison of losses in  naval personnel.���������Pall Mall Gazette.

French, in Turn, Take the Germans  Who  Fall   Asleep  A wounded French officer, who has  just rejoined his regiment in the Ar-  gonne district after threa months' absence, writes that .he-is struck by the  excellent spirit of the troops 'despite  their fearful hardships in a difficult  country where some of the hardest  fighting of the war has been accompanied by ^ an unusually high death  rate. Officers and man are convinced of their eventual mastery over  the Germans, whoso i.ttacks," they say,  are pushed home only when the soldiers .have Veen stupified wich a mixture** of ether and alcohol, which  sometimes causes.them to fall asleep  immediately after they have taken a  trench, so that "our men returning  butcher them like sheep."   Tho writer was further impressed  by the organization of the service for  transferring munitions, food and the  wounded. In the French rear, where  the roads were formerly execrable,  they are now mended daily and  cleaned by mechanical sweepers.  Infuriated by the capture of his  father a fisherman, whoso trawler had  been sunk in the North Sea by Germans, Private Croft, a Grimsby man  with the Lincoln regiment, is exacting  revenge. -  A comrade invalided home says  every time the Lincolns go into action  Croft says, "Now to avenge tnc old  man." After one bayonet charge  Croft turned to his comrades, grimly  saying,  "I've  prodCed   two   for pa."  In the January issue of the Fra appears the notable contribution to the  literature of tho war by Dr. Charles  W. Eliot, president emeritus of Harvard University. Dr. Eliot brushes  aside the incidents of the murder of  the Austrian Archduke and tlie friction between Scrvi: and Austria and  Austria and Russia and asserts that  the prime source of the present immense disaster is the desire on tho-  part- of. Germany for world-empire.  This desire, he says, has been cherished .at different times by one European nation after another, aud none  that has once adopted t has ever  completely eradicated it. Prussia long-  held this ambition, but was unable to  gratify it until 1870, because the German . people had been divided since  the Thirty Years' War into a large  number of eparale, more or less independent states. Shortly before*'the  achievement of German unity by Bismarck she had obtained by war in  1S64 and 1866 important accessions  to territory.  This contributed . to the delusion  that was soon toseize the whole German people, namely, ��������� the belief that  world-empire was only to be obtained  by force of arms. . Therefore, says Dr.  Eliot, united Germany ��������� has labored  with utmost intelligen.ee and energy  to prepare" the most powerful army  in the world and to equip it for instant action in the most perfect manner that science and eager invention  could contrive. To develop the supreme military machine, universal  conscription���������an outgrowt.i of the  conception of the citizens' army during the Revolution���������was necessary;  so that every young man in Germany  physically competent to ��������� bear arms  might receive the training of a soldier,' whether he wished it or not, and  remain at the call of the'government  for military duty during all his years  of competency even if lu were the  only son of a widow, or si widower  with little children, or the sole support of a family or" other dependants.  Eventually the German army was  made, the largest, according ta population in the world, and the irost efficient. It was placed absolutely at  the disposal of the - Kaiser, whose  mere word would march it at a day's  notice to' any frontier without; any  sanction from the Reichstag or any  other supposed representative of public opinion. At the opening of 3 914,  the Germa.-i general staff was of opinion that the German" -army was the  best and most powerful in the world,  and that if would do its share-toward bringing- true the German ambition    toward    world-empire.   In    the  view of Dr. Eliot, the German' navy  was not ready, and knew that it was  not ready, to throw down the gauntlet  to Britain. It needed a few years  more before it could accomplish on  the sea what was confidently expected of the army on land. Therefore  six months ago Germany egged Austria on in the belief that Britain  would not go to war. I-lcr army sho  considered to be, with the assistance  of the Austrian army, more than a  match for the land forces of France  and Russia, and her navy was strong  enough to ��������� cope with those of the  Double Entente. Britain's' entry into  the war was something she had never  calculated upon.       ���������'        - ������������������  Dr. Eliot continues to expound the  German religion of valor, and to show  how it is a contradiction of. the religion of Jesus of Nazareth. .He then  discusses the German contention that  the present war is waged as a "defence  against Runs'a. He says: "Germany  has"never dreaded or even respected  the military strength of Russia, and  the recent wars and threatenings of  war by Germany have not been .directed against Russia, but against  Denmark,. Austria, France -..rid England. In her colonization enterprises  it is not Russia * that Germany has  encountered but, England, France and  the United States. The friendly advances made within the last twenty  years by Germany to Turkey were not  intended primarily to strengthen Germany against Russia, but Germany  against Great Britain by Germany's  access by land to India."  Dr. Eliot ������says that the desirable  outcomes of the war are: "No world-  empire for any race or nation, no  more subjects, ;io more executives,  either permanent cr temporary, with  power to throw their fellow-countrymen into war, no secret diplomacy  justifying the use for a profit of all  the lies, concealments, deceptions and  ambuscades which are an inevitable  part of war and assuming to commit  nations on international questions,  and no more conscription armies that  can be launched in war by executives  without consulting independent representative assemblies. He -believes-  with HaveljcIc Ellis and other rioted  public man that some sort of federated Europe or league of the freer nations which would secure the smaller  nations against attack should be one  of the outcomes of the war. He admits that at the present time it is impossible to say how such a consummation is to be brought about, but, if  it is not accomplished or something  that will serve the same purpose, the  war will have been fought in vain.  Mittens Did Good Service  Story That Many Another Might Probably   Equally Tell  The tale of a pair of mitten knitted  by a pair if small \ut eager hands is  told in a letter received at Ottawa  from the battlefield in France. The  mittens were knitted by Elaine For-  cade a little French-Canadian "girl in  Montreal who sent them on to-  Major-General Sam Hughes with the  request that they be sent, to some one  who needed them in the trenches at  the front. The address of the maker  was however not given.  General Hughes gavs the mittens to  Captain Dumont, who in* turn sent  them.to General Legranne of the  French army. A letter received by  General Hughes states that the mit-  itens were given to a French soldier,  and that they have probably saved his  hands on many occasions from the  cold and snow of the trenches. It is  hard to say through what adventures  and scenes of horror the mittens  made by the little French-Canadian  girl have passed.  Charms on Soldiers  A Petrograd despatch to Router's  says that at an important conference  attended by the minister of agriculture it was resolved to recommend  the requisition of all stored cereals  amounting to 50,000,000 poods (1,108,-  500,000 pounds), now in the hands of  speculators. Prices, according to the  resolution, would be fixed locally after  a consultation between the Bourse  committee and the Zemslvost.  Strange  "Protection"   Found   on   Captured Germans  "Eye-Witness," in a despatch from  the front, has something to say about  the amulets and charms a number of  German prisoners" possess. He remarks it is somewhat surprising to  find reliance being placed on such  things. The writer, among other  things, describes the sporting interest  of the artillery combat and daring  flights by our airmen in a wind blowing at ninety miles an hour. Tho  despatch, which is dated January 19,  deals in opening principally with artillery bombardments, in which the  batteries cf the ui'em;- were generally  reduced to silence.  In a sceptical and materialistic age  like, the present it is somewhat surprising to find reliance being placed  on charmsi-and yet not "a few of our  prisoners are in possession of so-called "prayers," which are really written  charms against death, wounds, disease, and every imaginable evil.
