He  was more of a resident of Grand  Forks than his opponent, because  he owned property-here,.and he was  The  Liberal' convention  hf'ld'in": also'ihe' owner of property in   other  this' city on , Wednesday night was  the {.largest and most enthusiastic  gathering 6f Liberals ever witnessed  at a convention ofthe party in this  city. .The'large opera house hall  was filled with delegates from this  city, Phoenix, Cascade, Carson, Bannock City and Christina Lake. The  greatest optimitm. regarding thepuc-  . cess of.the party at polls prevailed,  jand harmony was the mpst distinguishing feature of the convention.  .Sixteen autbs were required to convey the Phoenix delegates and the  .'friends of the successful noorinea to  this city. The splendid turn out by  the Liberals of that acted as an inspiration of hope to ,the delegates  ��������� from the other sections of the constituency.-  E. C. Henniger called the convention to order shortly after 8  o'clock. On motion of a Phoenix  delegate, he was chesen -permanent  chairman. Mr.Henniger thanked the  convention for the honor conferred  on" him by being'selected to preside  over the largest Liberal convention  ever held in the riding. After a brief  ���������" speech,-in- which he'.predicted success for the local candidate and for  the party throughout the province,  he announced that the time had ar-  ��������� rived for placing nominees before  the convention.  B. Lequime nominated Neil Mc  Galium, of this city. The nomination was seconded by K. Campbell,  who, in a short speech, recounted  the high qualifications ot Mr. McCallum to represent the constituency  at Victoria,  B,.  A.  Brown's name'  was   pro  posed   by   two  of his Grand Forks  friends, but   Mr.   Brown refused to  entertain the nomination, and withdrew his name.  Wm. Bonthron placed  the  name  of J. E. Thompson, of   Phoenix, he-  fore the convention, and the nomin-  tioa   was   seconded  by' a   delegate  from the.city of mines.  ,    Neil   McCallum   arose   and    explained that be had only   consented  lo allow his name   to come, before  frMe convention in the event of there  being no other  available candidate.  In view of the fact that Mr. Thornp  . son.was willing to accept the notnin  alion, and   as   he   considered   Mr.  Thompson   eminently   fitted   to re  present the riding at Victoria, he. de-  'sired, with the consent ol the mover  and the seconder of his nomination,  to withdraw    his   name  from   the  convention.    This consent was finally   secured,   and    Mr.    McCallum  moved that Mr.Thorn so   snorni a-  sections of the district. He would  work for no particular class, but for  all -classes. The business man, the  workingman, the capitalist, the  farmer and the miner would receive  equal consideration at his hands;  He would not only be ��������� he representative of the-Liberals, but also of the  Conservatives. At some future date,  he said, he would address the citizens of Grand Forks. on the issues  involved in.the preseut campaign.  :,Neil'McCallum,".who"'followed Mr.  Thompson, also made" a sphndid  speech. He thanked the delegates  who ,na"d proposed his name, but at  the same time'be thought the convention had, made a wise.choice, and  he paid an eloquent tribute to the  integrity and sterling "qualities of  ihe nominee'. Too much power, he  continued, would corrupt and cause  the downfall of any government.  That the Conservative party of British .Columbia .nad-- become corrupt  was evidenced by the fact that such  a staunch Tory as David Whiteside  had forsaken the party and thrown  in ^his  lot- with the Liberals.    The  fit  McBride government would have to  go at the coming election, and  Grand Forks riding would help lo  oust it. This constituency would  line up with the majority, and Mr.  Thompson would report for duty  immediately after the election.    ������  Mr. Bolier, of Phoenix, was glad  that the delegates presented as solid  a front to the enemy a?y the allies  did in Europe. The McBride government did pretty well up to 1911  ��������� as long as the Laurier government  was in power at Ottawa. He compared the federal government to the  main line of a railway system, and  the provincial governments to its  branch lines. Too much credit  could not be given to Parker Wil-  iams tor the good work he had done  as . leader of the opposition in the  legislature. Had it not been-for his  -vigilance the shady transactions of  the government would have con  cealed. The speaker stated that he  was in fav.>r of reim posing, the poll  tax as an act of justice to the other  taxpayers of the province, and con  eluded his address by eulogizing  the record of the nominee, of the  convention as a citizen and a business man.  Short speeches were also made by  R A Brown and a couple of Phoenix delegate.  , The mention by   the  speakers  of  the name of the leader of the Liber  al party of.British Columbia, H. C.  Brewster,   was    invariably   greeted  ERALELECTION  RUBLE IN JUNE  tion be'-mad* unanimous.

Maclean, M.P.j says today: ��������� Tues  day, June 8, has been set tentatively  as the datef or the federal election,  according to a- persistent report  around the city yesterday. A" prominent Toronto Conservative is given  as authority for the statement.  - A June election is the favorite  guess of- politicians in Ottawa, al-  tnough the possibility of there being no contest until September is  admitted.  The printing of voters' lists is well  under way. The revision is made  annually by provincial or major  municipal authorities and sent to  Ottawa. ��������� The federal lists are. there-  fore, an annual reprint of local lists.  The presenf government's-' term  expires in October, 191fi. A term  lasts for fiye years from the date  upon which writs are returnable.  In 1911 election dissolution occurred  July 29, polling on September 21,  while the writs were, returnable October 7. Parliament, of necessity,  would'have to dissolve on or before  October 7 of 1616, but the election  could be held at a subsequent  dale.  The franking   privilege on parliamentary documents  expired   Wednesday nigut, and literally tons  are  being sent out from   Ottawa as cam  paign literature.  This fact alone, with journeys to  Ottawa of. outside politicians, nominating conventions and similar activities, are all condueive to the belief that an early election is expected.  Care in Handling Fruit  The fruitgrowers of Critish Col  ���������umbia have petitioned the express  companies, through the secretary of  the British .Columbia Fruit Growers'  association to issue the following  notice and cause it to be conspicu  ously posted on the inside of the  sliding doors in all express cars in  use during the shipments of soft and  perishable fruit and also on the inside of the sliding doors to express  or warehouse rooms at stations:  "Expressstation agents and others  handling extra perishable fruits,  such as berries, tomatoes, plums  and peaches, in transit, are respect  fully requested to observe the following rules.  "1. Take (inn hold on  the   pack  age   when   shipping   or   moving it  from place to place.  "2. In handling avoid titling the  package beyond 45 degrees from its  horizontal position.  "3. Never let go your firm grip on  the package till it is gently placeed  in its placed (a dropping jar to a  crate of ripe, juicy strawberries,  raspberries, peaches, or fomatoes  will easily knock 25 percent of  value out of it).  "4. Pile crate firmly fn express  cars or on trucks to avoid rocking  motions.    These motions on a  long  right hack-to you, .arid" effects your  economic progress, although you  never tnought of it.  '''6. All persons having interests  in fruit of any kind observing careless violation of the above rules will  co.ifer a favor upon the company as  as well as the public by, taking such  notes as-will enable the officials of  the company to trace- the -violation-  to the guilty party,  ���������'All such notes should be addressed to the division superintendent respective of the place of occurrence where records are kept and  employees scored by their efficiency."  GHTFURNACEStN  BUST AT GRANBY  More Poultry Needed-  Canada is short   fifteen   hundred  thusand hens, averaging   one   hundred eggs per year.   Canada in 1914  imported   two . hundred    ihou6and  dollars'   worth   more   poultry   than  she exported and imported   eggs   to  the   enormous  amount  in value of  82,500,000   in excess of  her  .'shipments abroad.    These are the somewhat   surprising, if   not   alurming,  statements' made by the poultry   di  vision of the Dominion   department  of agriculture, from which also ema  nates the important  announcement  that   Britain. .took   from   Belgium,  France,    Russia, ���������  Germany      and  Austria Hungary   in   the available  months of ��������� 1914  three million dol  lars' worth of poultry and 136,000,-  000 dozen, or sixteen   hundred   and  thirty-two  million   eggs���������sufficient  to give 2,235,616'people   two   eggs  aoiece   for   every   day in the year.  Such 'facts   must surely   convey a  world of meaning to .poultry   breud  nrs   in   Canada.     These   facts   are  further  emphasized   by   the   state  rnent that the average egg yield per  hen in this country is   but  80   eggs  per year,  which  we are  further  assured by experts  could^   by  careful  selection,   feeding   and housing   i ������������������  increased   to   1^0; eggs  per hen per  year.

It  points out that net increases in   the  number of subscribers took place in  March, as   compared   with   February, in Vancouver  and   Victoria, as  well as in several of the   smaller exchanges   of   the   company.     A net  gain is also noted for   the   province  as   a   whole.    This would indicate  that the provinco  has  resumed   its  forward   march    ..That steady   expansion is expected is further shown  by the announcement that the   tele:  phone   company    has  in hand sst'������  mates   of   $32,796   in   Vancouver,  $1790 in North Vancouver, 822,145  in Victoria, and $5750 in Nanaim",  as well as improvements in   hand at  Courtenay and Ladysmith.    During  the past few months the British Columbia Telephone company has been  perfacting its' equipment   wherever  tests   showed   that    improvements  could be made, and   also   has    been  doing   work    on    many   of   its exchange buildings, so that everything  will be maintained at that  point  of  excellence   for   which the company  strives.

B.C.  .*i UfC ������  Australian   Farmers   Find   Sourceo'of  Wealth in Their Myriad of  Rabbits ^  Tlie rabbit has maclt g.reaL headway  in tlie Australian district around  Nimitybclle and Crapping has become  a profitable industry, so a Sydney  newspaper reports. One buyer alone,  it seems,' sent away more than a ton  of skins each'week all through .last  ., season. ]t has been decided to start  freezing works at the place���������that  means* carrying the surplus ,rabbit  crop over in cold storage. The exportation of rabbit skins from Australia  now exceeds in value ?:i,000,000 annually, according to the Sydney report.  Now this is astonishing information.'The antipodes are to be congratulated. For years we have been hearing about their pest of rabbits. Australians lfave long viewed with gloom  - the overrunning of their continent.  What mosquitoes are^to New Jersey,  or prairie dogs to Kansas," or the  gypsy moth to New England, rabbits  are to Australia���������that has been fay  impression.  .'It was sixty years ago, or so, that  an incautious gentleman of New-  South Wales obtained from Europe,  and turned loose in the colony, three  pairs of rabbits. As the population  and wealth of Australia increased, the  rabbits increased, and more thai: correspondingly. Until recently it had  been a tremendous problem how to  check them���������to say nothing of ex.er-  mination'. They drove farmers from  their lands, and" have threatened such  devastation as has not been known  since the .succession of plagues, paralyzed Egypt. Travellers report that'  rabbit proof fences are characteristic  of the Australian, landscape's. Some  years ago an attempt was made to  spread   a   parasitic   epidemic' among  - them.    But the pensive Tabbit multiplied faster than the gerni3.   ���������  The Australians have found a way'  at last. They have solved the exasperating riddle by turning the rabbits  to profit. A demand for rabbit has  been created in the world's marts, it  appears, especially for .the skins.  Whaj? was a nuisance, and a destructive one, is found to be marketable.  This is merely another illustration;  of course, of an industrial miracle  with which .we are familiar���������the utilization of what has.been thought useless, the working up of a by-product  into something of commercial.value.  The rabbit resources of Australia  are probably inexhaustible. -It will  be some time, at any rate, before the  country will need to take measures  to conserve the supply, even with  the liveliest demand. Meanwhile, the.  happy situation is that; the:Australians are able to sell what they have  plenty of, and do not want to keep���������  what, indeed, they would hitherto  have been glad to pay to get rid of.  Such luck is enough to make the celebrated Australian bird, the laughing  jackass, split its sides with laughter,  and the kangaroo leap for joy.���������Providence Journal.

The contention  had long been advanced by all farm  specialists that the cleaning of grain  was one of the most profitable operations on the farm, but the station determined to prove it conclusively or  say nothing more about it.    ���������  Heavy plump oats, thoroughly  cleaned, were seeded beside medium-  weight oats that had not been cleaned. At threshing it was found that  nine and a half busrels an acre more  had been obtained from thj cleaned  grain than from the uncleanod oats.  Pretty conclusive evidence in favor of  cleaning the seed grain, isn't it?    .  The Nebraska experiment station  experimented in a similar way with  wheat. The average", yield of "wheat  from the clean grain averaged four  bushels an acre higher for tho two  years during which the. experiment  was conducted. ' Nor is that all, for a  seed specialist in the fCanadian government service has found" that better results are generally gained than  in the Minnesota or Nebraska experiments.  It is ..the general belief that the seed  grain this spring will bo far below  .the average unless steps are taken to  select only the best for seed. The purchase of a good side-shaking fanning  mill to separate the heavy plump kernels from the light, shrunken ones, is  certain to prove a profitable investment as a. result. Many farmers arc  already cleaning their grain, so that  they will'not be so rushed when seeding time comes.,  " The reason why the cleaning of  grafn pays is easily explained.

A heavy, plump seed should  give birth to a stronger, more vigorous plant than'will a shrunken seed,  just as a cow in good condition will  give birth to a stronger, better calf  than will a cow. so poor and thin that  she can scarcely walk.  It has also been found that the  plump kernel can feed the plantlet  better because it has more to feed it.  A good, strong calf, turned into a pasture, will not thrive- on grass alone,  but if the grass is supplemented by  the milk of its mother it will grow  splendidly. Likewise, a.small grain-"  plant in a field,- if its food supply in  the soil is supplemented with the  stored-up food in the mother-kernel,  will grow strong, but if it must depend entirely on the food in the soil  it'will"grow .'very slowly, if at all.  Two men, or a man and a boy, can  run grain through an ordinary farm-  size fanning mill at the rate, of: about.  30 or 40 bushels per hour, and grade  it as indicated. If the seed is fairly  good, half of the best of it may be  used for seed. If it is not very good,  only 10 per cent, or, 25 per cent,  should be kept for seed. The amount  taken out can be regulated by adjust-  ing-.the sieves and wind. The lighter  grain separated is not wasted, as it  may be sold or used for feed. The  plan simply provides'for using the  best seed for seeding, r>nd disposing  of, the poorer seed, just as one saves  the best animals for his breeding  stock and sells the others.  If 25 per cejnt. of the grain is saved  for seed, its only cost is to grade "it or  separate it from the other grain. If  two men, whose-time" is-worth-50  cents per hour, can run 32 bushels of  grain through a fanning mill, and  grade out eight bushels of -.the  best seed, the additional cost of the  8 bushels will be 50 cents, or 6 cents  per. bushels. We know that such  work, well done,' will return at least  500 per cent, on the investment.���������  Minneapolis Journal. ...",-  Good Advice. for' the Country School  Prof. Ciias. W.

Prohibition in Iceland <  Incidental to the project of per:  sonal reform through national prohibition it is to be noted that the parliament of Iceland has made a law  forbidding the sale of alcoholic liquors within its jurisdiction. While  Iceland is a Danish colony and subject to the authority of King Christian, its parliament has control of  local aaffirs, and the experiment now  undertaken undoubtedly will be carried out without interference.  It has signfiicance more especially  because of the recent autocratic edict  making "dry" the great territory of  the empire of Russia. So far this  latter seems to have proved successful. Iceland, with some 85,000 inhabitants, ought to be able to control the  matter as effectively as has been  done wtih the millions of vodka drinkers in Russia.  It is not an affair of local option,  however, but of national preference,  and in this respect it may be instructive in its operation.���������Boston Post.  1 am glad to hear that The Banker-  ' Fanner, is,to deal in its August issuu  ,., with common school education in this  '\ country, especially iii the rural (lis-  '   tricts. ' .  -  There is great need foi-a thorough  Reconstruction of the programs of the  rural schools. ��������� The instruction which  they now provide in reading, writing  .'and arithmetic should not be diminished in .amount, but- altered in na-  Mure.-The greater part of the direct  'instruction should relate -to natural  history, . agriculture and farm .life;  and the books used fojr teaching  - reading and. spelling should be on  these subjects, with" additional primers on geography/American history,  and civics. The arithmetic should  be confined to the "simplest examples  . in addition, subtraction, multiplication  and division, decimals 'being made  , familiar almost .from the", start; for  the well-taught child will -learn' about  tenths and hundredths-as quickly "as-  aoout tens and , hundreds. All the  child's reading, and all the teacher's  ��������� oral instruction, should be"illustrated  with concrete .examples, and every  child should bo trained to see,' hear,  and touch accurately, and to remember what it thus learns by observation.  An important part of the school program should be devoted to the training  of the -senses,-, and to this kind of training of the memory. No matter what  system be employed in teaching reading, every child should learn the alphabet by heart; and Whenever a change is made in the system of teaching the  children to write���������such changes have been .too frequent.of late���������the change  should apply only to beginners, and not to the children who have already  practiced long the rejected system. In the last two years of the rural  school's course, every child mould-learn the elements of agriculture and.  gardening^ and should have a garden plot to cultivate. 'Prizes should be offered for the best ."plots'.of vegetables, small fruits, and flowers.' Every boy-  should be given practice in; the use of carpenter's tools; and every, girl  should be taught to sew, cook and can fruits and-vegetables. Reading aloud-  and singing should be a substantial part of every rural school's program.  The practice in English composition jsliould mainly cons'ist of -writing descriptions of what the child itself "sees, hears or touches.  These improvements in rural schools cannot be made without spending  more money than towns and counties have been.in the habit of appropriating; but no town or county expenditure "will be so profitable to the community as the expenditure which makes these changes possible.  "In order to put these improvements into execution on a large scale, all  normal schools will have tp prepare their-graduates to give instruction in  the subjects'.'and methods indicated. Some normal schools are doing that  now, but by no means all.

Banks Will  Send  Them  Circulars  on  the Moisture Problem  The chartered banks in the prairie  provinces have jointly decided to  send through the mails this spring  one hundred thousand circular letters  to farmers, urging them to do the  necessary -work to preserve the moisture in the soil. This is a step which  has never before been taken in the  history of banking in this province.  The message to farmers was prepared  by the department of agriculture of  Saskatchewan and it is intended as a  last word to grain growers before  they go on land in the spring. Packages of these circulars, with the best  advice of experts in grain growing,  will be sent to hundreds of branch  banks and from these branches copies  will be mailed to thousands of customers. Copies of the circulars will  also be posted in many public places  in the towns where the banks have  these branches.  "There is no sentiment in this proposed action of the banks," said a  leading,banker. "Many- thousands of  grain growers in the prairie provinces  owe money to the banks and we are  naturally anxious that they should all  be in a position to pay this next fall.  The condition this spring will be veyr  much better than it was last spring  in the matter of moisture. If sufficient work is done by our grain growers to preserve the moisture that is  already in the cround, a failure of  the crop of 1915 from- drought would  be impossible. We are therefore urging the farmer to prevent evapora  tion and preserve moisture.".  Use for Flax Straw  May  In  A Scottish recruit.

Develop    a   Linen   Industry  Western Canada  An outcome of tlie war -in Belgium  may be the transferring of an important linen industry 'to Canada. The  movemenmt is beiiig projected by  Belgians with a view of relieving the  suffering among the unemployed . of.  that country.  Western Canada offeis special opportunities to the flax industry, which  has been brought to a state of high  standard in Belgium, but owing to the  war is now at a standstill. The making of linen has been a>large and important industry in the little country  that has made so heroic.:, showing in.  the present war. A large number of  women are or were employed in the  manufacture of liiien and they are  thrown out of work. In order to organize the industry in the -west of  Canada, efforts will be made to get in  touch with the large Belgian manufacturers. Thousands of women are  thrown out of employment and these  could well emigrate to Wetsern Canada and there find the very work waiting for them to which they have been  used all their lives. It is expected  that should the movement from Belgium be affected in any large proportions, a large number of male experts  will.also take advantage o^ the new  country.  Flax straw of an estimated value  running into millions of dollars is  burnt every year in Western Cauada  for lack of facilities to utilizo it.

U. 1043  Use of Vaccines in Disease  (Contributed by Unrversity of Alberta)  After many, years, of studying bacteria'in a laboratory scientists have  discovered that'by growing bacteria,  killing theni by heat, ��������� and injecting  them into the human bodysby means'  of. a hypodermic syringe s' they can  cause the blood of that-body to form  a substance' that will protect it from  the disease which that germ- .would  cause. This preparation is called a  vaccine and is used to prevent typhoid fever." It-is" also .used as-a'  treatment-for the disease. ��������� -Many:  other bacteria are prepared in the  same way and wil cure boils, erysipi-  las and some forms of blood poisoning. Dog's distemper, which is due to  a special microbe,, can be .prevented  and treated  in  a similar manner.  There" is another way in which disease's caii be prevented and treated.  If the poison found by bacteria is injected into a horse, a substance will,  be manufactured in its blood which  will prevent the horse from taking  the disease caused by these bacteria.  If -then 'tome of the blood be drawn  off and allowed to-clot, the serum or  watery part can be taken, and used  to treat human beings. For instance,  diphtheria anti-toxin is made by injecting a horse with the poison  formed by the diphtheria germ which  has been grown in the culture, tube,  and thus,we get from the horse without killing it the anti-toxin, which  every year saves thousands of lives  all over the world.

Battleship Rescues African  Slaves From Arabs  A letter received from Arthur I-Ian-  kin, now serving as wireless operator  on a British battleship cruising off  northeast Africa, describes the capture, in the Red Sea, of a large sailing vessel engaged in carrying captured African natives to Arabia, to be  sold as slaves. The letter says, in  :part:  "There was a large canvas lying in  lier bow, and when this was raised we  found the front of the ship packed  with slave women and little boys.  The poor women were scared -nearly  to death. The slavers had told them  we" would cut off their heads if we  caught them, and threatened to 'knife  them if they moved under the canvas. .* ~  "We had to lower a boat and lift  them' into it, and then raise them in  the boat on board. So weak and  cramped' were they that they could  hardly stand. Some men and boys  taken off were in much better condition, although they had been chained  in the ship eight days. The last two  days they had been without food. The  sailors from our ship had to pick  them up bodily and carry them below.  "When we landed, these poor people, after they had learned we were  their saviors, fell down at the feet of  the sailors and kissed their boots. Instead of going into slavery they, will  be turned over to the convent and  educated and then sent back to their  native homes in Africa."  Minard's Liniment Cures Distemper.

Wellington Campaign Plans  The map found on a captured Uhlan  marked with the prearranged  marches of the German troops reminds one that Wellington distrusted  fixed plans of campaign.

A-New Industry  Make   Binder  Twine     From     British  Columbia Hemp  The Indians of Central British Colombia, both those living in the coast  villages and .in the interior are" ingenious and clever in certain crafts  and arts. As weavers, carvers, carpenters and boat builders their reputation is well known, but few are  aware that jLhey are skilful' ropo  makers.  From tlie wild hemp which is indigenous to the country they make a  very fine- . and ' exceedingly strong  rope, with a finish which any rope  factory in the world would be proud  of.  At Awillgate, an interesting and'  picturesque village in the Bulldey  Valley, close to New Hazelton, one  of the promising towns on the Grand  Trunk Pacific Railway, an opportunity is given of inspecting some  of this rope, and also a quantity of  the hemp in course of preparation for  the final process. The Indians use it  for "tracking" their 'heavily laden  canoes up the swift rivers in tow, a  test that proves-its qualities beyond  the question of a doubt.  From the same hemp the Indians  also make a stout twine and a,sewing thread, but not so much as in former days when those articles were  much more costly than they are today. The twine was used chicfi-y  for making fishing nets.  In view of the present interest in  Canadian industrial development, the  question naturally suggests itself,  could not this hemp be cultivated for j  the manufacture of, sa3% binder twine  for which there is such a great demand, in the agricultural regions of  Western Canada, and for which the  raw material has' to be imported  from distant countries. This wild  hemp "might not only be made to  contribute to the industrial wealth of  Canada, but also be made a source  of. employment to the Nation Indian "wards, who could probably be  induced to cultivate it; and even  manufacture rope and "twine. with  modern machinery.

Perhaps a majority of the officers  and tars of the British navy today-  are clever boxers, but, age and weight,  considered, there isn't a better fistic  gladiator in his majesty's navy who  can give a better account of himself  than Vice Admiral Sir John Jellicoe,  the commander of the North Sea  fleet.

In his younger days the little sea.  fighter���������he is only five feet four  inches in height���������was the bantamweight champion of the British navy.  Stories of his fistic prowess are still  current, and it is said he scored  many victories over lightweights and  welterweights. In those days "Jelly,"  as he was popularly called, always  entered the ring a favorite. At Rot-  t.ingdean, where he received his Jan-1  education he was a famous football  player, although lie weighed only  about 115 pounds.  Through his fondness for strenuous sports lie developed a constitution which was strong enougi- to*  bring him through many perils on sea  and land, and without which he would  never have lived to reach the high  honors he holds today.

The Doctor's Wife  Agrees With  Him About Food  A trained nurse says: "In the practice of my profession I have found so  many points in favor of Grape-Nuts  Food that I unhesitatingly recommend  it to all ny patients.  ."It is delicate and pleasing to the  palate (an essential in food for the  sick) and can be adapted to r.ll ages,  being softened with milk or cream  for babies or the aged when deficiency  of teetii renders mastication impossible. For fever patients or those on  liquid diet 1 find Gi-ape-Nuts and albumen water very nourishing and refreshing..  "This recipe is my own idea and is  made as follows: Soak a teaspoonful  of Grape-Nuts in a glass of water for  an hour, strain and serve with the  beaten white of an egg and a spoonful of fruit juice for flavoring. This affords a great deal of nourishment  that even the weakest stomach can  assimilate without any distress.  "My husband is a physician and he  iis.es Grape-Nuts himself and orders it  many times for his patients.  "Personally I regard a dish of  Grape-Nuts with fresh or stqwed fruit  as the ideal breakfast for anyone���������  well or sick."  In stomach trouble, nervous prostration, etc., a 10 day trial of Grape-  Nuts will usually work wonders toward nourishing and rebuilding and  in this way end the trouble.

It is Wise to Prevent Disorder.���������  Many cases lead to disorders of the  stomach and few are free from thorn.  At the first manifestation that the  stomach and liver arc not performing  their functions, a course of Parmc-  lee's Vegetable Pills should be tried,  and it will be found that the digestive  organs will speedily resume healthy  action. Laxatives and sedatives are  so blended in these pills that no other  preparation could be so effective as  they.  Whacked   German's   Head  It  is   a  favorite  trick  of  German  spies    to  dress  up  as  women, and,  speaking French, get into the British  lines.  Two of these, who had been overheard asking some soldiers in English what they got to eat aroused the  suspicions of a sergeant.  "I nipped across quick to say  something to one of ouk. officers," lie  says. "He heard, came across behind  the two.peasant women, got one neck  in each hand and just whacked their  heads together before they knew it.  He pretty well st...uied them, and  then we had 'cm Into brigade headquarters. They turned out to be two  German men, and I think it .was a  bullet for  each  soon  afterwards."

U.S. Petroleum Production  The production of petroleum in the  United States in 1914 surpasses that  of any previous year in the history of  the industry, according to John X).  Northup, of the United States Geological Survey, the output being estimated at 292,000,000 barrels. These  preliminary figures indicate an increase of more than 13 percent, over  the production of 1913, which reached  the record breaking total of 248,446,-  230 barrels. Of the total 1914 oil output, Mr. Northup estimates that nearly 70 per cent, came from .California  and Oklahoma.���������Dun's Review.  M TROUBLE ALL  '$ HEAD  Like Little Water Blisters.

Found   More  \,. tense Than Afternoon  The variation of daylight in greenhouses and kindred phenomena have  ���������been investigated in a very thorough  manner by leading scientists. The  measurements of light intensity were  made with a form of chemical photometer, and it was found that morning light was, on an average, 10  per cent, more intense, than after-'  noon light. . This difference varies  ���������with the .season, in sonic months  reaching 30 per cent. Hence-, other  things being equal, a crop wilt show  a greater development on aiT east  than a west exposure.- The "'light-  transmitting properties of different  kinds of glass vary greatly. Thus  the loss of light from glass as compared with outdoor light ranges all  the way from 13 to 36 per cent, or  ��������� more. . The practice of lapping the  panes causes an average ��������� loss of  light of about 11 per cent. The transmission of light naturally increases as  the angle of the roof more nearly coincides with a right angle to the sun's  rays. The reflection .of light from  surfaces is- another important factor.

Skins Worth $35,000 Bid in For  000 by Firm at Edmonton  Never before has the business of  the trappers and traders been so demoralized. Tho Hudson's Bay Company and Revillon's, Limited, the two  greatest buyers of furs in the world,  who announced at the beginning -of  the winter that-they \yould not be in  the market for the purpose of skins  this year, have kept'their word to  the letter.  In former years it was no uncommon thing for a buyer from one of  the world's large fur houses to purchase some ifL'a.OOO worth of raw  fur during a- trip. This year the aggregate.buying of all who have come  north will not reach $2,000, says a  report from Edmonton.  One of the most,interesting deals  ever made by a fur trader in this territory is credited to Colin Fraser,  king' of all the northern trappers,  and a man who- for 61'years has  caught fur bearing animals of all  kinds. Fraser makes two trips to the  city every year, and never fails to  bring from 10 to 40 bales of raw  skins. His catch this year was very  moderate, a paltry 9,CS3 skins being  secured. Having spent six months in  the wilds of the Mackenzie river  basin, Fraser had not heard of the  European war until . he reached Edmonton.  He expected upon his arrival there  to sell his" furs at about .$30,000 to  $35,000. The skins were put up for  auction, but there were no bidders. At  last a bidder, appeared in the person  of a representative of an Edmonton  firm. He would pay Fraser $13,000  for his 20 bales of new skins���������-$13,000  spot cash. The market was bad, he  explained, very bad. Fraser had no  alternative but to accept the offer,  for raw furs once bought cannot long  be left in storage unless properly  cured. Never did a king have such a  fall.  Never before lias milady had such  an excellent opportunity to lay in a  stock of the finest furs that money  will purchase. TJiis is one result of  the war from which the buying public is certain to benefit.  Stay on the Farm   ,  ��������� i  The  Farm  Offers 'More Opportunities  to   the   Ambitious   Than   Does  the City "  There is much alarm over ��������� the  abandonment of the farm by the rural  population, .and especially tho boys  and girls of the rising generation/- IS  it surprising that they should leave  when.; all the farm offers them, as  they see it, is drudgery and circumscribed opportunities? They read a  city paper and imbibe the city*point  of view; they have city .schools.which  educate them away from the farm;  and they are lured to .the city, by the  desire for wealth and the variety and*  gaudincss ofthe life which, it affords.  Tho farm affords a much better financial opportunity to the wide-awake  aggressive, individual than is commonly believed. -A successful farmer  says that on the one hundred acres  of land which .he has built up by rotation, he makes $1,000 a year exclusive  of his living. Contrast the opportunities which the farm offers to the man  of limited means provided he knows  how to handle it advantageously, and  which he should be taught, through  the course-.:��������� offered in the'secondary  and common schools of his community, and that of tho city wage earner  drawing $1,000 a year. On one hundred acres of land in twenty years the  farmer should have made (120,000 in  money besides his living. Suppose he  paid $10 an acre for his land: At the  end of twenty years it will be worth  probably $30 an acre; in many cases  it actually becomes worth from $50 to  $75 and even $100 an acre. At the  end of twenty years the farmer lias  a competency, has probably educated  his children advantageously, and has  something laid aside with which" to  help to start them in a business of  their own.

Farmers  Pocket a  BiHicn  on  Wheat,  Says This Expert  ���������. One billion dollars and more will  have been poured" into 'the strong  boxes of farmers of the country when  all the 1914 wheat crop is" sold. Tiii3  estimate was given hy B. W. Snow,  expert grain statistician of Bartlett &  Frazier, to the Chicago Tribune." The  enormous sum which grain raisers  are getting today for their wheat will  total nearly twice as much aa the"  $600,000,000 aud more which they re-  0j j ceived for their best wheat in 1913,  according to Expert Snow's compilation.  The price of wheat on Dec. 1 is r.l-  ways taken as a general average of  wheat prices for the year. Seventy-  nine cents was the price on Dec. 1,  19i;j. _ Because of the record breaking  advances-of wheat prices since tht>  outbreak of the war, and since Jan. 1,  1015, especially, the average for 1911,  Mr.,Snow explained, cannot be judge.l  by the Dec. 1, 1914, price, which was  08.6 cents a bushel on  the farms.  "The usual rule," said Mr. Snow,  "is that wheat does not oegin to advance in price until the bulk of the  crop lias left the hands of the farmer.  But in 1914 tho ."direct opposite was  the case. - The great benefit of the  advance undoubtedly has gone to the  men who actually produced the  wheat, while the amount of toll taken  by the middlemen, is relatively much  less than usual."  ���������'">.���������.'".

', ~ only "too" frequently manifestations of  that spirit in times of peace.    It is  only natural, therefore, that it should  . Unci expression in war, since" the idea  of "striking terror" into the non-combatants of an invaded country is an  article of the German military regulations, emphasized by the kaiser when  he exhorted    the soldiers to "deport  ���������   themselves like the "Huns" in China,  and to "gain the reputation of Atilla.".  This brutality is the essential spirit  of German militarism,    and through  '  the army has,. Mr. Harrison insists,  ���������    -permeated into' all grades of German  civil life. -   ' ������������������  ��������� The individual German is not-cruel  for the sake of cruelty. His brutality  ��������� is rather a method.- He would refuse  to attend a bullfight or cockfight, or  any spectacle of deliberate cruelty,  but he would think nothing* of cutting  his horse's- back into bleeding weals  if the animal jibbed or shied or throw  him. Mr. Harrison has heard Germans that complained, bitterly of  pigeon shooting at Monte Car.o, emphatically justify the right of soldiers  to shoot at sight all suspected of  franctirage, and to destroy any village or town where civilian, acts of  aggression had been 'established.^  Prompted largely by. the kaiser's persistent'-' preaching, the Germans have  educated themselves   to    the. army  ' standard of "ruthless attainment ��������� of  tlie "end" in' objeeffra principle that  '���������finds .'expression throughout Germany  in the phrase "Sich impon'ieren" to  ���������assert,   oneself'"regardless'   of   the  -   "ineans or cost.- ''"-"'_������������������  This attitude" has a-terminology of  its own. 'To fix a manvwith the eyes  is a recognized practice, and,has been  the sole cause "of many a fatal duel.  Another practice which has come  down from the; army to the workshop  is.what drill sergeants term "rolling  the eyes." Absurd as it may appear  this rolling the eyes is," says Mr. Harrison," "a recognized German sign of  temper, a prelude to disciplinary  chastisement." The -sergeants use it  to awe and hold in,his men. Thus, if  a private, struck on the lace by a corporal for having a button off his coat,  shows resentment by rolling the eyes,  ] he iff liable to further correction, as  the corporal would be if he-rolled his  .eyes at-a sergeant, and.the sergeant  would be if he rolled his ��������� eyes at a  lieutenant, or a workman would be  for- rolling 'his eyes at a foreman,  or. a waiter-rolling* his eyes at a head  waiter." Then again there is the  forefinger sign, the most'eommon gesture of-modern Germany. Symbol of  punitive discipline .used as a menace  and a "warning, it is a sergeant's lirst  admonition. ' "Petty as such a detail  may- appear," observe^ Mr. Harrison,  "in reality "it is interpretative of the  modern German attitude, and of such  that it is now astonishing and' revolting to the world. It" is th2 national  gesture, like the Frenchman's shrug  of the shoulders, and means just the  opposite. It represents the civil counterpart .of the military doctrine of  'striking terror' whence it derives."  Trivial and droll as these idiosyn-  cracies may seem,' they are none-the  less characteristic of the German  spirit of-Iife, which "'in the modern  military garb has led to a social system of formality, lickspittle, buliying*,  and '. brutality, inconceivable to anyone ��������� that' has not lived in Germany  and-studied- the system at work."  The cult of bruality. has been  preached for fifteen years, hot only in  the army and on political platforms,  but from university'chairs, and,-according to Mr. Harrison, produced  serious social disease in the nation.  Brutal outrages upon children have  become chronic in the lower classes,  and sex perversitier: in the upper.  Strangely brutal crimes have become  so common as to "constitute unmistakable scientific ground for'speaking  of the patheological state of Germany  as the direct product .of the imperial physical force doctrine." In  the German armies we are fighting a  doctrine of brutality, the national attitude. Though I find It hard to  credit the reports of German, soldiers  firing, under cover of flags of truce  and,the Red Cross, I know that" the  Germans will not c_ly wage war  brutality but p.'ilessly, as their emperor has frequently behooved them  lo. We at any rate,, will keep the  flag clean. Let us try and remember  that the Germans are .'.misguided  nation, suffering pathologically from  disease���������a disease' caught from the  kaiser,-"vvhich may be described as  "intelligent-Jprutality." <  Should Encourage  the Cordage Industry  English  Writer Sees a  Great Future  For the Land of the Czar  For the next twp. hundred years  the British empire and. the Russian  empire wil be the two greatest powers  in the world, writes Hamilton Fyfe  in the London Daily Mall.; They must  make up. tneir minds to have done  with bickering, to be sensible, to be  friends.  ��������� Looking beneath the surface of  things, I see tbb.war as. a struggle  between the British empire and Germany for the Twentieth century. Each  century In.modern time3 .has: been  dominated by one power. The sixteenth was Spain's . century; the  seventeenth. Holland's. The ��������� eighteenth belonged to France, and the  nineteenth to England. Now it was  clear; as the nineteenth century drew  near its end that England alone could  not hope for another term of supremacy. But England had brought into  being an empire, world-.wiae, immense  in population and in wealth. It seemed that the sceptre���������not of actual  rule, of course, not of physical or  material domination, but of influence  by character���������might pass from the  Mother to the children.  Germany alone disputed this order  of succession. That is why the world  is at war tociay. But Germany cannot conquer the British empire; she  is breaking her nails against a rock.  /Therefore to that empire will belong  the Twentieth Century, and to Russia  when Bhe has awakened the intelligence-of her peasant millions and developed her resources, will surely belong the twenty-first. Let us both  recognize this and live at peace.  We have in truth, more in common with Russians than with any  other nation. We are, for instance,  obstinate and inconsistent; so are  they. If we taunt them with sticking  to their old caleacar, which is thirteen days behind everyone else's, they  can point in reply to our pig headed  and far more inconvenient retention  of peculiar measure of money and  weight and length, in plac* of the  decimal system used ty. everyone  else. When we complain that their  alphabet has thirty-six letters in it  their retort is: "It enables us to spell  as we pronounce, whereas your spelling and pronunciation are not related  at all!" Englishmen who are rash  enough to pity Russians because they  "lack political freedom" are reminded that there is-no Mrs. Grundy in  Russia to check personal freedom  yith a far more galling bond.  *" No Russian who knows the world  denies that his country is behind the  other great powers both in the common level of intelligence and in mechanical conveniences. This has advantages,, however. It is annoying  that Petrograd should be so badly  paved, that laundries should make a  practice of keeping your "washing"  for three weeks instead of one, that  there should be no regularity in the  postal or in any other service, whether private or state. But these are  trifles in the general, scheme of  life. If against such drawbacka we  set the comforts of strong nerves,  few cities, no rush from the land,no  industrial weakening of the greater  part of the population, the balance  will scarcely go against these, whether we consider general happiness only  or take into account the.health of  generations to come.  "They have their effect.as well upon  the solidarity of national sentiment.  Every Russian wants to free Constantinople from the Turk. Some  want this because Russia needs an  outlet into the Meditorranean, and  can not any longer submit to the  Dardanelles being treated as private  property. Some see that the chief  development' of Russia's ' natural  wealth must be in the south, and be-  lievo that destiny is forcing Tier  towards the Golden Horn. Most want  it because they [n.vebeen taught that  Chrits is dishonored by the worship  of Islam :n the Cathedral of St. Sophia.  Well, what are we going ,to do  about it? Keep up our old policy of  suspicion? Attempt to deny Russia  that for which skJ ardently longs?  Bleat in tho accents of the 'eighties  about the highroad u.o India? Or with  frank and friendly agreement tell our  ally. "We shall not stand in your  way?" If we do not there is trouble  ahead for everybody. I should not be  doing ray dirty,'.] I did not say that  Russians are watching, very closely  for signs of Engalnd's temper In  this matter of Constantinople and the  Dardanelles. . ���������  Claim is Advanced That More Protection is Necessary  At a time when the ways and means  of internal revenue are." being considered,- attention ir; directed to, the  twine and cordage industry. .Those  now engaged in the industry 'in Canada claim that it suffers from class  legislation, and that the better support of a healthy home industry rather than encouraging importations,  would result in retaining for .circulation in Canada, a large amount of  money that is now lost to the country.  Some seventy-five per cent, of the  twine- and cordage requirements of  Canada are now on the free list, and  considerably over half of the consumption is imported. Twcntj"five or  more cordage and twine factories  have operated in Canada during the  past twenty years, and the number  of failures would clearly indicate'that  the industry has been beset with  many difficulties.- It is stated that  nearly all of the plants which-have  ceased to operate have gone out of.  .business since the free listing of most  of. their products, has come into' effect. As many of the American cordage makeis, with a much v/ider market, - have ceased operations, little  criticism, of "the ""failure of Canadian  factories to succeed can be made in  view of the greater^ difficulties with  which they have had to contend.  The manufacture of binder twine in  Canada has proven to be unusually  speculative aiid risky under existing  con.dii.ions, and it -is believed that  some readjustment of the tariff should  be made to encourage tliis industry.  Put on a paying basis, with : n ever-  widening market through - the increase in agricultural and fishing  pursuits, an 5 ulustry giving employment- to a large "number of people  ���������would result, and large sums of  money would "be kept for circulation  in'Canada, that are now expended on  foreign products and consequently  lost to  Canada.

War Lord Says .That No Matter How  He Feels He Never Loses His  Temper"  ��������� The Neueste Nachrichten has published an interview with Dr. Ludwig  Ganghofer, the German author,- in  which, is given a further account of  the writer's visit to Emperor William  at the imperial field headquarters.-Dr.  Ganghofer says:  . "I heard and saw an example of the  emperor's quiet patience with slanderous statements which should be  instructive for us all. Remarks of  such a nature embitter him, but even  in his greatest excitement he never  loses the mastery of his tongue.' I  heard him say in such a case. "That  is strong, but it is silly also. It is  fortunate that truth is always wiser  in the long run and that it has longer  legs.'  "Nevertheless there is a slight vibration in his majesty's voice -when  the subject is our Germanic cousins  across the channel. ��������� .  "In a conversation with, the representative of a neutral state the emperor once said: "You are a sportsman. When in a horse race, the weaker animals 'gradually drop out and  only the two strongest are left, have  you ever seen the jockey of the horse  which threatens to fall behind strike  with his whip at that jockey of the  more ambitious and stronger * animal?"   !';  "The man questionea -shook' his  head. The emperor continued: 'Why  ���������does England strike at us? Why does  she not rather strike at her. own  weakening horse V -  Yes, other words of the emperor  must be remembered.  "On one occasion he made this remark: 'Many- people who judge -us  Germans solely by outward polish  and term us barbarians, seem not to  know that there is a great difference.,  between civilization and "kultur."  England certainly is a highly civilized  nation. One notices that always in  the drawing room, but to Lave "kul-^  tur" means to possess deep con-'  science and high morals. My Germans  have conscience and morale.  "When they say in other lands that  it was my intention to found a world-  eiupire, that is the funniest nonsense  ever said about me. But in the morale, industry and conscience of the  German people is to be found a conquering power that will open tho  world for them.'"  The battle in the North Sea, which  ended disastrously for Germany with  the sinking of the Blucher and the  the crippling of two of her battle  cruisers, has. confirmed tho wisdom  of the British naval policy diving the  last decade and- will tend to .silence  those critics who advocated the abandonment of-"battleship construction  and urged- that the activities of the  shipyards should be confined to'the  building of submarines.     ' ~ .  The effective work performed* by  the" Lion in that fight is a special  source of congratulation to tlie British naval 'designers, as it.was against  the battle cruisers cf the fleet, .of  which the Lion is the most recent  type that much of the adverse criticism was directed.  The Lion and the Princess Royal,  her sister ship, were completed in  1912. They have a displacement of  26,000 tons and included in their ar-"  mament are eight of the 13.5-inc'h  guns with which the battleships of  the Orion type which were launched  in 1911 and 1912, were the first to be  equipped. At the time that the first  annourice:uent was made with "regard to the furnishing of the vessels'  with these guns, there was considerable hostile critcism from naval experts, but' so little did the British admiralty th:-ik of the adverse comments as to the size of these guns  that the hew battleships of the Queen  Elizabeth type were fitted with 15  inch guns which are three inches-  larger than any gv.n with which the  German navy is equipped.  These guns    throw a projectile of  tivo work in the North Sea, are the  most modern; 222 destroyers of various types, the latest of which are  the "M" class, of which the Miranda  j's the onlj' vessel yet launched; tir-  pedo boats in commission but not including about 50 vessels of the class-  of obsolete pattern, and 52 au'*>'i:iry  ships, including mother ships for destroyers, mine laying ships, distributing .ships, oil vessels and repair and  hospital ships.  The earliest battleships stiii in active commission are of the Mdjostic  type. There are nine of these vessels  and they are all included' in the  1898 programme. They hx/c- a'displacement of .14,900 tons, their horsepower is 12,000 and their coal carrying  capacity 2,500 tons. Thua'e vessels  have a speed of 17.5 knora an hour;  their armor plate is nii?u inches in  thickness and tho armor piotection of  the big guns is from 10 to 14 inches.  A comparison of these figures with  those of tho most modern vessels,  such as the Queen Elizabeth and the  AVarspite, is somewhat striking and  shows tlie great advance made in battleship construction during the last  few years. Battleships of the Queen  Elizabeth type have a displacement  of 27,500 '.ons, their estimated horsepower (tiubine) is 58,000 and their  oil carrying eapacny is 4,000 tons.  They are built for a speed of 25 knots  an hour, their armor plate is 13.5 in.  in thickn-.ss anu the protection of  their heavy guns varies from S to  13.5 inches.

At the-time of the declaration of  hostilities by Germany, the British  navy was composed of 728 vessels of  all kinds which were manned 'y 151,-  000 men of - all , ranks, not including  the navakrese.rve of approximately  10,000 men. This number included  four super-dreadnoughts of the Iron  Duke type,- four super-dreadnoughts  of the King George V. type, and four  super-dreadnoughts of the Orion type,  10 dreadnoughts of 20,000 tons displacement and over 40 battleships, 20  battle cruisers, 34 armored cruisers,  two fast light cruisers, eight scouts  of the Sentinel type, including the ill-  fated Pathfinder,,which was sunk by  a German submarine Sept. 5 of last  year; eigbt submarines, of which tho  "F" type that have been doing effec-  Russia Buys Vessel  Takes Newfoundland Steamer to Do  Some Ice Breaking  The steel steamer Lintrose, built  for the Reld Newfoundland Company  in 1913, has been purchased by the  Russian government for service as  an ice breaker in the White Sea. The  vessel will replace the Canadian government Ice breaker Earl Grey, which  proved inadequate to cope with tho  severe coulitions, and is now frozen  in at Archangel. The Lintrose has  sailed for Philadelphia, where it is  understood she will take on supplies  and passengers before proceeding to  Europe.  The Lintrose has been running between Port aux Basques, at the southwest extremity of Newfoundland, and  North Sydney, C.B., and has shown  herself sufficiently powerful to plow  through the ice of Cabot Strait and  make nightly trips throughout the  winter months. Tho steamer registers  1,616  tons,  and  is  255  feet. long.  It's all very well to keep hoping  for the best, but we hate to see a man  sit down at the job ' and call it a  day's work.

Germany Realizes Mistake  German Newspaper Admits Ambitions Lroucht War  The London Naval and Military  Record says: "The German newspapers are beginning to admit that  their navy has proved a bad investment. It is very significant that the  Lokal Anzeiger of Berlin has been  led to admit that the 'dangers which  at present menace Germany are far  greater than those of 1870,' and that  'these dangers would not exist if we  had not in the meantime developed  so wonderfully.' This paper proceeds  to discuss the growth of European  armies, but it doer: -not find in this  movement a satisfactory explanation  of.the difficulties which ara increasingly ambarrassing the Germans. It  admits that 'the decisive change does  not, however, consist in the increase'  of armament, but in the fact tiiat  while Germany 44 yean; ago was  only a land power, sh-j has since  forced her way up to the position of  one of the most important naval powers.' But even' more recently than  this admission is the statement that  'without this development we should  not perhaps have the war today.'  Perhaps the Germans are beginning  to realize that their navy has proven  an exceedingly cost!;' investment.  They antagonized continental powers  by the increase of the army, but it  was the naval movement which most  arrested the attention of the world  and created that spirit of hostility to  German ambition which has found  expression in neutral countries. This  effect was produced less, perhaps, by  the building of ships than* by propaganda which was encouraged by  Germany and Admiral Von Tirpitz.  Americans, for ins'ance, were not  alarmed so much by the Navy Acts as  by the declarations by tho Kaiser that  he was 'Admiral of the Atlantic.' that  'the trident must be in Germany's  list,' and that 'nothing must occur  in any ocean cf the world without  Germany's consent.'"  Great Maize Crop  A Central News despatch from  ^Durban says an expert states that the  imaize crop in South Africa will probably surpass the records of twenty  years. It is "estimated that 2/.0G.0CO  bags will be available for export next  year.

Russia Will Feed the Allies  Ministers     of    Finance  Arrange   For  Westward Shipments of Wheat  at  Special   Rates  An important result of the conference of the ministers of Finance of  Great Britain,, France and Russia in  Paris is, according to an article by  Dr. E. J. Dillon in the Daily Telegraph, that the vast supplies of cereals now hoarded up in Russia will  be sold and conveyed to western  Europe by way of Archangel and  Vladivostok. The cost of conveyance  will be cut down to the lowest limits  by the introduction of special  freights. This reduction in the cost  of transportation, taken together with  the low price's of foodstuffs - which  now rule in Russia and the exceptionally abundant crops in Siberia, will  enable the exporter to sell corn to  the allies at rates which cannot but  have a beneficial effect on the markets generally from the consumer's  point of view.  "As long as Russia had to keep*  her foodstuffs within her own boun-l-  ary other corn growing countries,"  Dr. Dillon remarks, "had it in their  power to raise prices to their hearts'  content, But once the allies find it  to their advantage to draw on Rus-  sai's granaries s'\ r-'y the demand  will lend to be equalized, and foodstuffs will become proportionately  cheaper."  This transaction, which was unanimously agreed upon by t'ntf three ministers, will have the further effect of  lightening the burden of Russia's indebtedness and of contributing to a  belter rate of exchange.  There is a good story in the London Xatior. about one of the ������ lighter  accidents of the fleets. The other  day the commander of a destroyer,  rolling heavily in a gale, and with her  engines disabled, tried to lessen the  strain by lading out oil.

Army Needs More Meat  The British government ha.5 requested all the . ustralian States to  secure all the meat available for export during the Avar, as large quantities will be necessary to meet the  needs of tho British army. France  also will require a considerable supply. The Commonwealth parliament  has unanimously passe'd a bill authorizing the measures necessary tffl  this end.  ^^^ ��������� w^mrv���������xji    n   1  THE   SUN,    GKAND   FORKS,   B. C.  Ir.  NEWS OF THE CITY  R. A. Brown feels confident that  diamonds will eventually be discovered in the crater of his Volcanic mine, and this belief has added several million dollars to the  value of that property. The pres  cnce in British, he says, of diamond-  iferous areas- is " not so nfreTas is  generally supposed. Specimens containing microscopical diamonds have  been found on the North Fork of  the Kettle river; on Siwash creek,  south of the t raser; near Ashcroft,  and also in the Tulameen. The  specimens found on the Gladstone  claim; near Pboenix, was.a piece of  "float," but up to the present its  place of origin has not been located.  According to E. A.
