Edgar Dewdney, a former  lietenant governor of British Colum  bia, died in Victoria on Tuesday  afternoon. He was a famous old-  timer, coming to this province in  1859, aud in the early clays built  the Dewdney trail, named after  him. During late years lie bad been  identified with the Britania mine at  Howe Sound. He svas a resiuent  director. He was born in Devonshire, England. Walter Oewdney,  government agent at Greenwood, is  a nephew of deceased.  Our local   contemporary  appears  to    take     a   ghoulish     delight    in  recording  a   partial   eclipse   of Tlie  Sun.    In answer, it   will   suffice   to  state that an eclipse, i.s   of  a   transitory   character, and   that  after it is  over the sun shines as brilliantly as  it did   before   the obfuscation    occurred     In   passing, we might state  that if a    certain  newspaper in this  neighborhood   paid  their employees  there  would   probably  be a permanent darkening  of   its   business   affairs.  U is understood   that   the   representatives   of   the   Granby Consolidated , Mining   and   Smelting   company   have   completed    their   preliminary examination   of  the   Coal  Mill camp near Kamloops, and that  as   a   result   they  have entered into  agreements with the owners of three  of the Coal Hill properties, where a  considerable   amount   of    development   work    has been  done, which  will ensure   the   commencement   of  operations   at   an   early date.    The  Python    group   of   six   claim**, the  Wheal Tamar group near Jacko lake  and the Evening  Star- group   lying  southeast of the  Iron   Mask   min<-s,  will all be reopened   by  the Granby  people within a   fortnight, says   the  Nelson News  The represen la lives of the company lefl for Phoenix lo make arrangements for tlie shipping of the  necessary equipment, and it is understood that a diamond drill will  be sent to Coal Hill and underground  exploration of the on bodies by the  means of this equipment will be a  feature ol the company's activity iu  this camp.  So far as the Python is concerned  it is understood that the long tunnel  will be continued for some   distance  to pierce the ore body   beneath   the  shaft and at a depth of 450 leet.

There arc two sides to the  picture, and the- London Times gives  the other in a brief record of the siege  of Paris in 1870-71, when the Germans  slowly, starved a civilian population  of more than 2,000,000 into surrender.  "They arrived before Paris in the  middle of September," says the Times.  "By October S our columns report that  tlie" daily consumption of horseflesh  within the city' hacl. risen enormously.  By November 20 no" more beef<or minion was. to be'had. On December 0  our correspondent stated that 'hit  hunting is"now vigorously carried on,  to meet the demands of the restaurants.' When.the frequenters of the  restaurants were eating rats the diet  of other classes must have been ter  n'ble. On December 15 the population  wore put on a ration of horseflesh. The  allowance was 30 grammes, or about  un. ounce.  "On January 15 the broad ration was  reduced from 500 lo 300 grammes, less  than 10 ounces for adults, and to half  that amount for children. This bread  was a black and indigestible compound  of rice, barley, buckwheat, oats, and  even hay. Long files of women and  childrengalhered before dawn at the  bakers' shops in the rain, the cold and  the snow of a winter in which the  temperature sank to 21 degrees of  frost.  ���������'The animals in the Jardiu ties  PI antes were eaten. Elephant sold at  from 10 francs io 45 francs a pound,  nnd even"'eoteletlcs de. tigre' are mentioned. There were markets for'dog-  flesh and catflesh, and an English  writer partook of a feast at which  'the sole dish was a cat with mice  "round it."' There was no fuel and  no light. The people starved from  cold as well as from  hunger.  "On February 14 one oE the English  party who brought food into Paris  utter the armistice told the Mansion  House ���������Belief .Committee what he bad  seen. Some of the people assisted  were barely able," he said, 'to walk  lo the place' of distribution, and when  the provisions were handed them  'they were unable (o carry them  borne.' Tbat is how the nation that  reprobates the 'brutality' oi our blockade remorselessly exercised its strict  right of siege.  "But perhaps the French children  did not suffer? Perhaps the besieged  babies had plenty of milk? Let us  see what was their fate during. the  German investment. The French did  their best for them. To the very end  .'{.Olio cows wei-f. reserved to supply  milk 'for tire sick and now born infants.' But the supply was altogether  insufficient. Milk began to run short  ho early as September 22 and a month  later the scarcity was effecting children. By the second week in January  .���������in English correspondent says they  were 'dying off like rotten sheep.'  "What were the feelings of the humane Germans toward this vast, population of non-combatants, the innocent victims of their military operations? Did they regret the sufferings  they caused? Was their pity suppressed only at the stern voice of  duty? Lot their idolized statesman  .speak for them. When Jules Favre  came to Bismarck lo arrange for the  jirmislicc the Prussian statesman ob-  served that within a lew weeks the  French representative had grown much  grayer; 'also stouter, probably on  horseflesh;' while the Count's ������CIiUv-  m.-nily staff selected" 'high class restaurants ill Paris as a suit "hi": subject fot' eunTr-r.-iit'.on with the French-  mail's  famished   secretary.  ���������'Favre told Bismarck that pretty  children were, still to be seen in the  streets. 'I am surprised at that.' the  genial champion of Prussian kulfur  leplicd: 'I wonder you have not yet.  i-fiti-n them.' And the Germans knew  very well thai the siege bad oust numbers of children their lives. They  have been on very short commons in  Paiis foi some tine! past,' Bismarck's  today and Boswcll records on January 2. 'and the death rale last week  Hiu'ounted to about 5.000.' For the last  week  of   December  if,  had   been  3,280  and for the week before 2.728.  "'The mortality,' our humane German goes on, 'was especially heavy  among children up to 2 years of age.'  Has he any touch of pity? 'Coffins of  these liny French citi/.ens,' be adds,  'were to be seen in all directions.'  Herod might, have jested so."  Farmers' Bird Assistants  Was Veteran Ship  Invincible   Was   the   Flagship   of   Admiral   Sturdec  The British battle cruiser Invincible  is.by far the most interesting ship  sunk iu the recent naval battle. Since  the outbreak of the war she has taken  part in almost everv naval engagement fought. On August 28, .1914, she  was one of the units in Vice-Admiral  Beaffy's squadron, which won the  battle* of Heligoland Bight. This was  the. first-naval engagement of the  war.   .-.���������.������������������.'  On December 8, 19J4,cshe was flagship of Admiral Sir F. 0. D. Sturdee's  fleet which defeated and sank the'Ger-  man fleet under Admiral Count von  Spec off the Falkland .islands. .--  After this battle she returned to  England and refitted. She then joined  the squadron which aftempted-to force  ���������the passage of the Dardanelles^ During  the series of engagements which took  place with the Turkish forts she was  badly damaged and forced to go to  Gibraltar for repairs.  The Indefatigable and Queen Mary'  (ook'part in the battles of Heligoland  Bight and Dogger Bank under Vice-  Admiral Sir David  Beatty. -        ���������  So far as is known, none of the  other, ships sunk���������British or Gorman  ���������has figured in.previous naval engagements.  A  New Anesthetic  Gordon Edwards, a chemist in the  city of A'ew York, is credited witli  the discovery of a new anesthetic to  which he has given the name of  "uikalgin." It is declared to have  certain advantages over other anesthetics when used to deaden pain in,  the treatment of flesh Wounds.  Mr. Edwards.says-of it that the relief from pain which it gives in' exposed 'surfaces��������� is "as nearly absolute  as tho effect of any drug can be.  Anesthetic is produced just a scom-  plctely whether tbe wound be merely  an abrasion of a mutilation. Only  when wounds are well advanced toward the healing stage and the nerve  ends are covered with a film of new-  skin, uikalgin is not effective. But  on all fresh wounds offering an exposed raw surface, the new anesthetic  will completely suspend all sensation  and suffering, however extensive the  wound may be. and sensation will  remain suspended for about three  hours.  Seemingly, the discovery is an important and valuable one. Tbe Vatican War Belief Fund has already  ordered 2.000 tubes of uikalgin.���������From  (ho Albanv Journal.  Some Insect Destroying Birds Found  in Manitoba  (By J. D. A. Evans)  With the commencement or the. nesting season we are privileged to observe-  Ihe wondrous ingenuity of God's little  feathered architects, a majority of  whom have returned to Manitoba from  distant zones, perchance flown high  above roar of sea storm in the journey  from islands wherein climatic condition permits bird life to spend winter  in comfort and ample sustenance.  The writer does not profess to be  a practical exponent of Manitoba's  orl.hbiological features. Nevertheless,  residence of .many years in this province has furnished him opportunity  to study of its bird life and the application of-.such toward' its economic  value to agriculture.  Usually by the first week of May, a  greater part of the bird migration has  arrived in Manitoba. Adequate protection of insectworms or insect destroying birds has become a question  of vital importance to the farmer.  Within recent date it has been computed, that if Ihe .family of insect devouring birds became extinct in Manitoba, within a few years the grain  fields could not possibly raise-a crop.  Until even a recent period certain  birds highly valuable in the extermination' of insect pests, were erroneously  'considered, enemies of the farmer, and  very destructive to grain and seeds.  As example the robin, one of the first  feathered arrivals, was deemed a plunderer of the farm garden fruit bushes.  But  investigation  of  the  charge   has  Belgian Relief $6,000,000  The methods of administering the  various Belgian Belief Funds are interesting. The Canadian Central Fund  is at Montreal. The executive place  their funds at tho disposal of a. Neutral. Commission, which, in turn, by  a very sound system of purchase and  inspection, ships cargoes to Rotterdam.  Here the supplies are transported into Belgium without difficulty, without  interference of German officials. The  supplies are distributed by an international or neutral commission io  some L'lO central depots. Communal  committees���������-of which there are 4,000  ���������perforin the actual work of distribution, having sub-committees for investigation and other purposes. Already over .ffi.OOO.OOO has been spent  in relief bv the methods.  acquitted the robin, the diet of which  consists principally of harmful insects  and worms.  A list of the most important iusect-  ivorious bird visitors to Manitoba comprises: Robin, Cat-bird, Wren, King-  oird. Oriole, Shrike, Jay, Woodpecker,  Ohicadee. To this number-may-likewise be added that alleged egg and  chicken thief, (he crow.  Indeed, the crow is one of the very  few birds which consider potato bugs  as a leading feature of the menu card.  The   bluejay   rejoices   in   a  repast <of  cut-grubs and caterpillars.   The wood-'  pecker may   be  justly   adjudicated   a  most  potent factor in  destruction  of  insect  life.      The  principal - hunting  ground of  this  bird  consists of    tree  trunks, from  which is removed  every  available grub, tbe woodpecker's beak  drilling  deeply   into   the   timber  tyid  abstracts pests immune from   attacks  of   other   birds.     From   the   day   the  sparrow arrived in Manitoba, its character has been stained with a charge  of grain theft.   The case cannot stand;  careful scrutiny of the sparrow's, habits   will  reveal   (he  fact  that  it  is  a  very, decided   enemy  of  caterpillars.  The shrike,    otherwise    butcher bird,  possesses  great  capacity   for   inshect  diet   of-every   description.       Hawks,  owls, regarded enemies of the poultry  yard, undoubtedly perform .much useful  work in  the annihilation of mice  and gophers.    A deadly agent against  insects   is   the   swallow.

Then one day, an official position  was offered him-by the 'Canadian  Pacific Railway. At."the ago of forty-  one he has achieved distinction as  a practical railroad man, despite all  those years of preparation that were  spent in pursuits so popularly believed  to unfit a man for the practical life.  The busiest men are the ones who  find the most time. In the past two  years, Jolty Murray Gibbon has been  attending to bis railroad' duties with  one hand,' and with the oilier hand  has been writing a. novel, which has  just been issued by the famous publishing house of John Lane in England and S. B. Gundy in Toronto.  "Hearts and. Faces" is the story of  an artist. It treats of the. artistic  temperament as it sallies forth into  the warmer world, from-the. somewhat  unpromising environment of Scotland. . . Sometimes the pictures are  gay, sometimes sordid; but they' arc  never vulgar. Through them "move  many characters with -.whom the reader  has become acquainted in the earlier  chapters.' Amid these scenes, as in  London and later in Germany and  Italy, George Grange moves as the  most important figure. It is the adventure of a soul. And each adventure is traced with a canny knowledge of life as it is, rathe/than as  many writers would like to believe it  should be.  - And it was written by a. railroad  man! Still, there are enough examples of versatility in the art world  to prove that such an achievement  is possible. -A merchant of Russia  composed music that is now'sung in  the opera houses of the world. It does  not lessen Paderewski's ability as a  pianist because be is a hotel keeper  in Warsaw.

The Secretary of the Lincoln High-  way association in a recent publication demonstrated that, when thai  highway is completed from coast to  coast, it would be possible to transport  air army of .100,000men with all theii,  equipment 3,400 miles across tbe con-"  tincnt in less than three weeks. If the  50,000 motor cars needed were not  available, they could be turned ouf  in American factories in two weeks"  notice. Or; if the men were sent by  rail, the burden of transporting sup  plies could be taken off-the railroads  by nuto trucks traversing this highway. The, Lincoln highway should  become the backbone of a great national system of network roads. Three  millions have been spent on it. since  its declaration in 101.3, and no time  should be lost in putting the whole  route in permanent hard-surface condition. Other routes and trails cross,  it and paralleling it-arc rapidly being  developed. In peace or war. good  roads are vitally necessary.���������Minneapolis Journal.���������  High Cost of Preserving  Dealers in canned fruits are-looking -forward to a large increase in  business this year.

U.      Ilil  Money in Hogs  Canada in a Good Position to Develop  a   Permanent   Bacon   Trade  As is well known, hogs havo reached  an uuprecedently high lcvcL���������$11.65  .per cwt., being paid for, fed and  watered on the Toronto market. The  fact that, even with live hogs at this  figure, shipments of bacon aro regularly going forward to England, will  serve to illustrate very clearly the  demand for that product on the British market. : Without doubt, Canada  stands, in a better position today to  develop a permanent bacon trade with  Great Britain than has ever been the  case before. To do this, however,  there must be volume of supply. There  is very good reason to believe that,  although prices cannot .be. expected  to remain lit the present high level.  II.o. demand for bacon, in the face of  tie supply that can be obtained, will  be such as to hold the market in a  very firm condition, both during and'  Cor a. considerable period ..following  the war.  Great Britain's imports of bacon  inJ0J5 amounted to ������25,441,400. From  Canada she obtained only ������3,324,511.  The fact that Canadian bacon has  been selling at an advance from 10  to'"123/ per "cwt.'; above 'American and  at not: more than 12s. under the nominal quotation for Danish, illustrates  clearly to what extent Canada could  increase her export trade, had she a  sufficient quantity of hogs to make  this -pesiibie. The. English market  and tin British consumer will buy'  Canadian bacon today, quality being  equal, in preference to that from any  other country in the world, with the  possible exception of Ireland. Not  only so, but an "enormous market exists also for ham, frozen ������������������'pork, and  pork cuts of various descriptions. This  market is as' remunerative as the  bacon trade, although it is not likely  to prove as constant.  The West is producing a great  quantity of rough grain this year. As  compared with wheat, it will probably be relatively low in price. It  should, therefore, be a sound business proposition to breed as many  sows this spring as would provide  each'farm next fall with such a number of feeding hogs as can be conveniently handled and suitably finished. They should, however, bo so  selected and mated as to maintain  the-approved bacon type. Unless this  be done, we cannot compete with  Ireland and Denmark and will lose  status on the British market. The  development of our bacon trade is a  purely commmorcial undertaking and  we must early recognize that tve cannot sell to the British merchant unless we give him what he wants.  This granted, thrifty management  and good feeding should yield a: return this year which -will more than  compensate for all the labor involved.

The doctors say if it. had  entered straight at the point of "impact it would certainly have blinded  him."  Will Take a Lot of Education  Before  Edible  Bugs  Become-Popular  '. Dr. L. O. Howard, chief of the bureau of entomology of the ���������department  of agriculture, Washington, is quoted  as saying there is no reason why people may not- eat' bugs. He says insect soups can be made which are  very   nourishing   and   appetizing.  Of course, if the doctor is quite correct, a new source of food supply is  at once open to the general public,  but it will undoubtedly be. necessary  to do a lot of educating before the  American public will take largely and  kindly to puree of mosquito, beetle  or fly. Baked grasshopper pudding  or pie, pinchbug hash and such dishes  will have to make.their way to public  favor by slow degrees.  It may be true that adding "insects  to the diet list will' reduce the cost  of living. But it is not in this way  that the average consumer wants the  reduction made. What is wanted is  luxuries at low prices. The statesman who can produce them by menus  or a plank or two in a party platform  will earn the proverbial gratitude of  republics.

To prove this assertion Profossor Jones  of the University College, London, gives as an  instance of tlie futility of trying to pronounce  according to spelling a puzzle which requires  the word "fixture" to be spelled without using  any of the letters in it. The answer is  "phykscha."

The present price of the metals has  made it possible to work many properties at  a profit that under ordinary conditions would  have remained- idle. In the territory tributary to Grand Forks many properties have  recently resumed operations, and the  indications are that many more will commence  shipping ore before the summer is over. The  outlook for the prospector and the miner is  bright.  A  cynic  is  a man   who says smart things  that he doesn't really believe.  If everybody got their deserts, all our enemies would be in prisoji.  It id ways pays to tell the  truth,   but some  ways of telling it pays better than others.

Both parties have a  large following of bitter partisans who expect  some soft government berth in the event their  party is victorious.  In a very short time the department of  agriculture, Victoria, will have ready for distribution two new bulletins of great interest  to dairymen. The first of these bulletins to  be ready will be one entitled "Buttermaking  on the Farm," by T. A. F. Wiancko, dairy in-  struc or. The second one will be "The Care  and Feeding of Dairy Cattle," by S. H. Hopkins, assistant live stock commissioner, which  deals with the scientific care and correct treatment of dairy cattle. Both these now bulletins contain a great deal of exceptionally useful information for farmers interested in dairying, even if only in a small way, and will be  found to be of great assistance in overcoming  the problems, both great and small, that naturally arise even on the best regulated farms.

THE WORLD'S  BEST POLISH  Thrifty Danes Win Trade  Quality  of  Danish   Butter  is  so   High  That Market is Rapidly Extending  In Denmark the bread is home-  b re wed. The women spin woolen yarn  which the village weaver makes into  cloth, or which theV-.. knit into stockings. The women make their own  dresses. Often they make clothes for  their husbands and sons. The men  make, wooden shoe3 for the family,  nnd house furniture and farming implements. And the efficient Wanes  scl .Europe an example of intensive  farming and dairykceping. One result i3 that Danish butter is eaten  in countries east of the Suez Canal  and south of the equator. Vast quantities of Danish butter are shipped  into tlie' British Isles and to continental countries, but tho output is so  great, the quality so high, and the  reputation of Danish butter so widespread, that it finds customers _in  lauds as remote from the Danish  farms'as Patagonia or Tahiti.  .'lutland formerly was described by  geographers as a sterile waste. It is  now a scene oi highly profitable farming. The pastures are so small that  every blade of grass must be turned  into milk. Tho. farmers aro so provident that th'cy tether their cows in  rows and allow them to crop the grass  within reacli removing them to the  next uncropped grass the next day,  and thus steadily mowing each meadow. When the far side oi the plot  of ground has been reached the grass  upon the side at which the grazing  was begun lias grown enough to be  cropped again. The humidity in the  ���������itniospherc keeps Danish pastures  green when those of many countries  are parched and the process ef marketing grass as butter is not often interfered with by drought.

The courses have been  taken by a number of young men of  the province and have proved'very  beneficial. Reeenily there have been  applications from girls who wish to  study farming on a scientific basis.  t Tho girls have previously been lak-,  ing the Domestic Science courses, but  apparently this field was not broad  enough \u satisfy the female spirit of  tho West. So it has been decided to  place the entire work of the schools  on tho  basis of "Equal Rights."   -  To meet (he demand which, has  been "made' for .courses, the members  of the council decided to urge upon  the provincial' government the desirability of establishing more farms  and schools throughout the, .province.  The future of the West is certainly  bound up in her agricultural resources.  Therefore, too much emphasis cannot  be placed upon agricultural education.  Scientific farming as a profession is  more suitable for women than are  many of the so-called learned professions in which (hoy have already  entered. Alberta is wise in placing  no restrictions on the. educational  rights of women in this respect.  CHEST SORENESS, HOARSE-  STION MAOE TO GO yUlGKLY!

Nerve Force is so much' like Electricity, and the latter is so mucli better understood, that we have used  this vivid telephone picture to illustrate what takes place in the human  system when the connecting nerve  fibres are deranged or something- goes  wrong at Central.  In the nervous system the 'brain  is the Central where the Nerve Force  is created, and whence are issued the  orders which control the whole human  body. Here is consumed one-fifth of  the blood in the human b'o'dy, and  when the blood supply is deficient in  quality or quantity, the brain and  the nervous system aro first to feel  the effects.  Neuralgic pains and headaches,  inability to rest or sleep or concentrate the mind, dizziness and noises in  the ears, are some of the symptoms  of a starved.nervous system.  Just as machinery lags when the  current of electricity fails, so the  bodily organs weaken when the supply of nerve force runs low. Digestion is impaired and you lose appetite, the liver, kidneys and bowels are  slow rn performing their functions,'  the heart's action weakens, circulation is slow, hands and feet are cold,  you are easily tired, lose ambition and  grow downhearted and discouraged.  This describes the condition under  which Dr. Chase's Nerve Pood can prove of  greatest assistance to you. Forming new,  rich, blood it feed3 the starved, exhausted  nerve and brain cells back to health and  vigor.

G  ABSOLUTE.   ACCORD   BETWEEN   GREAT   NATIONS  Ser^ius Sazanoff, tlie Russian Minister, Says That It Has Become  An Alliance ofthe Hearts of the People, and That It Will  Assure the Peace of the World .  '"I'lu: absolule accord between Great  Britain and Bussia means that the  alliance formed in time of war against  a common enemy has become ah alli-  tinee for all  time."  Thus spoke Sergius Sazonoff, the  Russian..Foreign Minister, in an interview with The London Times Petrograd correspondent.  The alliance made by the Govorn-  . merits has now become an alliance of  Die hearts of the people," continued  M. Sazonoff. "In this friendship I  Bee the realization of the fondest  dream of my career, for in the true  friendship of England and Russia the  peace of the world is assured for many  generations. We have thus potentially won the war, although the struggle  itself may continue for years. Crystallization' of the idea that England,  France and Russia cannot be alienated establishes tho certainty that the  Central Powers have lost no matter  how they may by fortitude and internal sacrifice postpone the inevitable day of the admission of their  failure.  "With the realization of. tho Entente's amity and unity must come  also the permanent dissipation of the  mischievous idea that the Russians  arc a. people of ambitions and aggressive design, planning to advance their  own aims at the expense of Europe.  Nothing is further from the Russian  character. With our southern outlet  made irrevocably secure in perpetuity, with, the legitimate growth of and  development of'our economic and industrial life secured, with our boundaries suitably adjusted and our fellow-  Slavs assured of their due, the destinies and aims of -Russia"in- the West  are fulfilled. We can then turn to  the true aspirations of the Russian  Government and people, namely, the  development of our vast empire and  Die furthering of the interests of the  nation's peoples embraced within our  empire.  "The realization of this solemn truth  must demolish the fallacies and fictions heretofore spread by enemies  regarding the alleged Slav peril to  Europe, and must bring convincing  evidence that the Russian does not  stand as a'menace to Norway, Sweden  or other neighbors. T hope the Swedes  will" now realize the falsity of the  vicious idea that Russia lias any national aspirations whatever that in  the slightest way infringe .on their  national life, and I hope the recent  rumors regarding the Aland Islands,  which now happily are dissipated,  will prove the last error-of suspicion  of the Swedes regarding Russia."  M. Sazonoff referring to the promises of Polish'autonomy,'said::-  "No one deplores more than' the  Russian Government the sufferings  which have come to Poland and the  Polish refugees from the Teuton  scourge. His Majesty the Emperor  lias been so moved at the distress of  his Polish subjects that the' greater  demands for "human'.sympathy have  swept aside military .'aspects, and he  has freely given permission for widespread relief work . tq' be conducted  among them by the Rockefeller Commission for it seemed better lo him  that there should occur a teakage in  the relief provisions than that a single  Polish subject should suffer unnecessarily.  "The Poles cannot expect* that in  this life and death struggle we will  be able to oulline,in full our program  for Poland's future, but that Poland  will receive a just and equitable autonomy in the greatest degree; adjusted to its future life and "its economic  and industrial 'development is certain.  The Poles and the friends of the Poles  may, therefore, look forward to the  Russians for, a dawn of a new era and  a period of unexampled development  which will follow tho inevitable siic-  cessful conclusion of the war."  gmn  Russia and Poland  Poles Have Faith in  Russia's Pledges  to Their Country  Russian.. .dailies of importance, including-the Slovo of Moscow,' understand that Emperor William is perturbed by the solemn renewal of the  Czar's pledge to Poland. Poland will  be a nation, using her own tongue,  teaching her own culture in her own  nehools of all grades up to the university itself, declared Mr. Sazonoff to  the Duma. Germany, he said, in  effect, will grant Poland nothing like  1 hat. -The "episode became dramatic  when the Polish deputy in the Duma,  Dr. Harusiewiez, affirmed that his  country .is irrevocably with the allies  because they have sworn fealty to  the principle of nationality. The  Poles, lie added, believe in the Rus-  K,ian pledge of a unification of dismembered Poland. They sec in the  words of Premier Stunner the promise  of a 'Polish"nation "governing itself  with' the' Czar as a constitutional  sovereign. The form of the words was  bold but the French pros? is a unit  in deeming the Polish depuly correct.  If tlie details supplied by the Figaro  are correct. Poles throughout the  world arc for the most part assured  of the good faith of the Russian  pledges. Even the somewhat suspicious "Homme Enchaine, edited by  Clemcnceau. is convinced that the  Poles are justified in their acceptance of' the Czar's pledges to their  country.  Affects the United States  The assumption that the war is an  ordinary one anil that this country  is not "related to it is baseless, as  effort for nearly two years has been  made in these columns to show. Ideas  are at stake that vitally affect us.  ,'1'he question has been as to whether  the world was to continue the development of a democratic nationalism  that would prepare the "way for some  form of pacific internationalism, or  whether it was to become militarily  imperialistic. When Carthage fell be-  foie Rome it determined _ the future  of Greece. Even more intimately our  fate will be decided by the character  of the ponce made in Europe.

Persistent   Rumor   That     Funds     For  Sufferers are  Diverted  is Denied  Reports still persist that the Ger-  man occupants of- Belgium are profiting by tlie importation of foodstuffs  under tlie supervision of the Belgium  Relief Committee. The latest report  to this effect appears to have emanated from the French newspaper "Le  Temps," Paris.  Mr. Herbert Hoover, the head of the  relief commission, firmly denies the  truth of this. He has frequently ���������made  such denials and he again states that  all food and all ; supplies shipped  through the Belgian relief commission  .and its branches is assured of safe  delivery to its destination. Early in  the work of the commission small portions of the food were taken from local  depots by the Germans, but in every  instance, after affairs were straightened out, this food was paid for and the  money placed to the credit of the  Belgians.  As a matter of fact, there is ho other  safe way in which food can be sent  to Belgium except through the Belgian relief committee. This committee  just now lias its���������work cut put for it.  The conditions in Belgium have rapidly grown worse until now there are  seven million people almost wholly  dependent on this organization for  their daily food. The immense fin'an-  -eial drain to meet this demand can  hardly be imagined.  To meet, this the committee is sending out new appeals and directing  them particularly to prosperous Canada. The Belgian, relief committee,  59 St. Peter Street, Montreal, is receiving the donations for Canada.  Has yours gone forward yet?  Savings of People  S. W.

A united press following out  a-concerted policy in this regard could  accomplish more in a single year than  any other known agency in a decade.  No one would have the hardihood to  deny that a large general movement,  reducing the'disproportion between the  urban and farming populations, would  automatically produce economic, social and moral changes of immense  importance and value to.'.the entire  country.

Wonderful British  Nose of E-Boat Smashed by Explosion, Yet Her  Strength and Her Efficient Mechanism Saved It  In a certain dockyard in England  there is lo be found a splendid tribute  to the prowess of British submarines  and the skill of those who man them.  It is one of the finest of the British  under-sea boats, which, with her bow  twisted and bent as the result of a  collision with an enemy'mine in enemy waters, covered a distance of  almost three hundred miles under tier  own power and arrived safely in a  home port. Through the courtesy of  the British Admiralty the correspondent was permitted lo see this submarine aud talk with her officers and  crew.  She is in harbor with her bow-facing  torn into strips and two of her torpedo tubes crushed. Tier plates are  crumpled, two of her bulkheads are  broken away from the bow: but in her  tubes are two unoxplodcd torpedo* s.  Their casing is twisted and caved in  and the mouth of the aft tube is jammed. But the quality of (he big explosive in her torpedoes and the  mechanism controlling it prevented an  explosion, thus saving her from total  destruction.  She struck the mine head on. The  collision smashed two of her bulkheads, broke all glass aboard her and  sent the crew sprawling to the floor  of the compartments. But hi:r torpedoes did not explode, her engine:-  did not fail to register; she dropped  fo the bottom of the sea and the water  flooded in under the doors of the torpedo tubes aft. But within ten miii-  ules after the collision she-had been  righted, come to the i-urfoce and  turned her nose towards home.  When I looked at her lying.there  with her exposed tubes shining iu (he  .sunlight nnd her bulkheads in strips  of rusty iron it seemed incredible that  she had been under the coast guns  of the enemy, that sin; could have  made in her damaged condition a  journey of three hundred mile.'-, returning to a safe harbor with Ihe information  that  ,������lic had   be.'ii  --nt to  obtain. And added to this was the.  fact that she had made the voyage  in a high sea; that for twenty-hours,  defenceless, she evaded the enemy  patrols.  1 had hear I stoics of German submarines sunk  by a single shot, so I  af;l-e<:i   ono   of   the   officers   how   this  b'jat   rad   survived   the   tremendous  fchock ol ti.c mine explosion.  "She helil because of her strength,"  he said. "It broke her nose and it  tore off two of her bulkheads. But  she held. The efficiency of the pumps  was not impaired. Within two minutes V,-." had them  working."  He asked mo.if I would not go below and see the marks of the, disaster. So I followed him across a gangway and upon the narrow iron deck  v. Inch already was beginning fo show  red patches of rust. The hatch was  open. Ilelow I could sec- a while  o.imparlment with brass fittings.  I  do not know  what  I   expected  fo  find,  '.iii":  when   I  stood  in  this eoni-  parlmcjiT  I could see no traces what-  ?ji:Vfr  01  the  catastrophe.      Directly  in   front  of  1110   the  four  re;ir   doors*  of (he torpedo tubes, painted a. bril-!  liaut white, and (o my right and loft ]  the   great   shining    torpedoes     were j  clamped    in    their    rucks.     Only (he j  wheel   controlling   the.    bow     rudder'  was not true.     The slender brass rod  supporting it had  suffered from    the 1  vibration. '  . j  This was the only mark made by!  ihe mine of the enemy. Not that if!  was fo be estimated as minor dam-j  age, for the rudders have their parti  t.u play in the rise and dive nnd it I  was necessary to conn.' up from (he j  bottom of the sea. Not. a simple mat-I  lor with the' rudders not under con-j  Irol. _ j  "You sec," one of ,(he officers ex-j  plained (,.i me, "we dfdn't know what)  had happened���������(he water was /muring  in aft and broken /.dns.������ was. everywhere-. We-didn't know much of her  was gone. We knew that every man  aboard had been knocked flat on his  face, that the glass off (he dials was  ruffling  about   \\n']^r foot,      liuf   we  didn't know  what was  to  become of  us."  In two minutes the order to rise had  gone through to the engine, room and  the pumps were going. But whether  we were going to rise or not remained  to be seen.  "It was still enough, downthere. after all the noise of the explosion and  the smashing of the glass. You could  hear the motors turning���������it's not. much  of a sound they make���������and the testing of the wireless. We were glad  enough to hear that. And when we  saw the bubble in the clinometer was  still registering inclination we knew  that matter:* were not as bad .as they  might have been.  "Then they threw in the levers. We  waited. That was a bad minute. Then  the broken glass began fo rattle around  under foot, again. We were moving.  We weren't long in getting up. Af  any time there's nothing like coming  up into the air and sunlight after  you've, been under for a biL Mill this  was different. Yes, this was a bit  different."  This was how he fold me the story  of the black interval when ihc^f officer:- and the men of the crew waited,  submerged, at sonic 200 feet below  wafer level, not knowing .whether or  not their bulkheads wi-ro. destroyed,  whether their instrument* wi-n'. irreparably damaged, whether or not they  would'ever come n\) again into the  sunlight. It was his ship that he  sirmcd to think of above all other  things.  "We found out  what we'd come into," he .-aid. "Then it was whether we  could   make   a   port   alone.   The   wireless   was   working- -that   is.   we   could  send;   we   couldn't   receive.     We   took  a  look at the bow facing iit the bulkheads.    They looked  pretty bad  flanging loose iu strips.  Mill we decided we  could make it. The engines were right, j  and there wasn't, a broken dial aboard i  her.
