He had interviewed the townsite officials regarding a subscription towardsaside-  walk from the Meth.odist church to  the Great Northern station, but' had  received no encouragement.

The chairman of the health and  relief committee reported that there  had been no applications for aid  since the last meeting.  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that recently there had been a deficiency  of power at the power station.  Tenders for supplying the city  with a carload of co"al were received  from the Grand Forks Transfer  company and from Scott Bros.

No longer will a man be prevented from enlisting because his  wife objects. No longer will the  parents' consent of a minor have  power to stop him enlisting if he desires, and no longer will discharge  be granted on receipt of 815 to men  who change their minds and desire  to leave the forces. All such conditions have been wiped out.  ������f copper. One Million pounds were  recently purchased, half of which  found its way to the navy yards.  Neil and J. A. McCallum returned  on Monday from Penticton, where  they attended, on Friday evening, a  meeting of representative Liberals  from the provincial electoral districts of Grand ' Forks, Greenwood, Similkauieen and South  Okanagan, comprising the new fed  eral district of Yale. The purpose  of the meeting was to talk over  federal affairs and to decide upon a  date for a nominating convention.  Senator Bostock was present, and  addressed .the gathering. It was decided to hold the convention in Penticton on Wednesday, September 15.  An extraordinary general meeting  of the South Yale Mining company,  owning the Sunset mine, near  Princeton, will be held" at the company's 'office in this city- on Saturday, August 21. ���������  .

Decreased advertising revenue and  a shortage in the. supply of the  chemicals necessary for the manufacture of white paper, have resulted  in an agreement by the proprietors  of the London (England) newspapers to reduce the number of  pages. The Grand Forks Sun, how  ever, will continue to print the  usual number of pages.  Since the eighth page of this issue  of The Sun was printed, the proposed special meetings in the opera  house have been cancelled.

Dawson, ' Stacey,  Kenny, Cronin and Runmark,members of the Grand Forks  contingent  of the 5'lth' battalion, now stationed  at Vernon, visited the city this week  on leave of   absence,   prior  to their  departure for the front.   They  traveled   in   a   motor   car, and arrived  here- on   Sunday   afternoon.     Mr.  Bernie, a former   resident   of   thia  city, acted as chauffeur.    The   boys  spent a pleasant time with   parents,  relatives or  friends.   .Many   enjoyable   entertainments   were   held   in  their honor."   They started on   their  return trip to Vernon at  -1   o'clock-  yesterday afternoon.    It is expected  that  the   overseas   draft  from   the  54th battalion will leave Vernon for  England next Tuesday.

If you meet him on land, you .try  to conceal your strength in men and  guns; you do your best to hide from  him the disposition of your troops;  and if, until the very last moment,  ��������� you can pretend that you are attacking in mass one particular part of  the line, whereas in truth you are  hurling the bulk of your army in  quite a different direction���������well, that  is supreme generalship.  In the same, way atsea. the aim of  the opposing admirals is to take the  enemy at a disadvantage, to catch  him unawares, if possible; and to do  tiiat, it is necessary that the enemy  should be deceived by some means; or  another. '.  It is quite certain, for instance,  that when Admiral Beattywith the  British Battle/ Cruiser Squadron  caught the German, cruisers in the  North Sea the boasteJ. German intelligence -. system was ; at fault. ��������� Their  spies -had failed 'them. They had  been deceived, but whether they deceived " themselves or whether they  had been deliberately' misled by a  British ruse we shall know���������some  clay, but not just yet.   -  Ever since the ships of warring  nations began*"to fight each other innumerable stratagems have been invented- to circumvent the enemy.  The oldest of all is to pretend to be  what you are not. Thus .a fine frigate in Nelson's day would, do its  best to disguise itself as a harmless  merchantman, until the enemy was  near enough to engage, when up  would go the white ensign, and the  ��������� guns would begin to speak.-  Sir John Jellicoe is credited with  having tricked the commander of an  opposing fleet during naval manoeuvres by fitting out his vessel with,  an extra funnel, which at a distance,  made the ship unrecognizable. This  is interesting, because the famous  -Captain Karl von Muller, of the German cruiser Emden, tried, the,same  dodge, presumably with the idea of  luring British merchant cl-ips to their  doom.      ���������...'���������-���������. .-���������'������������������  On one occasion, during the manoeuvres, an ingenious British admiral  conceived the idea of letting loose a  number of bogus submarines against  the opposing:fleet. They were constructed by the artificers of the warships, and consisted of a. very plausible periscope, which showed above  the water, but which had no' submarine under it.  Such a subterfuge serves a double  purpose. In the first place, the sudden appearance-of a number of periscopes on the surface is calculated to  lead to a "jumpy" condition among  the commanders of the fleet which  may  encounter this  apparition.  They would as' a simple matter of  precaution, loose off a lot of guns at  the supposed submarines. Very likely  they would think they had hit quite  a number of them and escaping injury from suspected-torpedoes, would'  go on their way rejoicing and assured  of a victory. They might reasonably  suppose that they had sunk some'  enemy submarines and would make  their deduction from their effective  strength accordingly.  But sooner or later they would discover that they had been'��������� wasting  their ammunition against dummies  which could do them no injury. It  is there that the-second war object  or ruse  comes into "play.  Vessels that are .ftonstantly meeting periscopes which have no effective  body attached to them are apt to become careless. "Only another 'dud,'"  the lookout 'will say as he sights the  familiar object with his glasses. And  it will not be ten minutes later,  when the deck is dissolving under his  feet, that he will realize that this  particular periscope was attached io  a very business-like basement.  It was 'quite a familiar ruse in  earlier days to sound "retreat"' or  "advance" in the bugle language of  the enemy, in the hope that the  troops would obsy it.  Now that most of the movements  of smaJl bodies of troops are performed to the signal of a whistle  there is less scope for this particular  form of trickery, but when the Germans were advancing through.,. Belgium there were many recorded instances of their employing this rather  elementary stratagem.  Innumerable devices of a more in-  genius character have been employed  in the present war. Some of them  are so old that wo have to go back  to the times of the Greeks and the  Romans to llnd thir origin; some  of them are quite new and the outcome of craft adapted to modern  conditions.  One of the German "ways," which  may be described oh general grounds  as legitimate, is the pretence of one-  my troops, that they are really detachments of the British forces.  As long as they don't go to the  length of putting on British uniforms  in order to garnish the deception no  fault can be' found with this ruse.  The Germans are well equipped for  it because there are in their ranks a  great many men who have lived in  England, and who speak, or who  think they speak, perfect English.  But their speech generally betrays  them when they try this trick.  Giant German  Howitzers  W. N. U. 1059  Secret of Amazing  Piece of Ordnance  Kept For Some Time, is Finally  Revealed  Dunkirk .has been shelled by one of  those  giant  German  howitzers    that  have an effective range of just about  24 miles.  The secret of this amazing piece of  ordnance was well kept, but ihe ob-  joct of it has now been revealed-  These guns were incidentally, if not  mainly, designed Tor the shelling of  our English coast at Dover from Calais. They .were meant; to cover With  their fire a possible invasion of England across the channel from .France  and, even though that proved impossible, they would have been used to  rain death and destruction' on .our  coast towns 'from' Calais, once the  German .legions came within sight of  the white cliffs of- Dover. This was  the reason for the urgency of that arrogant high imperial decree last November that Calais must be reached  at all costs. '' ':".' '  And so Englishmen ; and Englishwomen may come to realize now how  merely true it is that /those brave  men of ours, and notably the seventh  division^ who fought the battle of  Ypres; and barred the road to Calais,  gave their lives in France for our  hearths and homes just as much' as  though they had fallen on the South  Downs or their valiant bones had  found a last resting place in the green  ���������bosom of the: Surrey hills/ '  The dogged valor and steady tenacity as well as the efficient fighting  of- the immortal seventh division will  rank forever as one of the most, glorious epics of British arms. That division alone is estimated to have put  out 200,000 Germans, the picked men  of the kaiser's hosts.  It is a splendid record. Hopelessly  and grotesquely outnumbered during  terrible .days and nights of fighting,  blown out of line of trenches after  line of trenches by overwhelmingly  artillery fire, the seventh division gallantly "stuck it" to the end, and was  never budged, from its last entrenchments. But more : than niue out of;  every twelve men in that heroic muster of warriors worthy 'of their sires  .were killed or badly wounded.  To Cure Pork  Effects of '-Frigtfulness"  Suppose that with ail Jier infamies  still exulted in, unrepented,-imatoned,  Germany was to win this -war. Suppose  even that she were to secure a peace  which exempted their authors from  punishment. Not merely the existence,  but th.e very possibility of morality  or honor between nations would have  perished; it would have' expired in  laughter; its bare memory would be  a theme for hissing. And does anybody fancy that this extinction of the  moral sense could be confined to the  intercourse of nations? Would not its  reaction be felt profoundly inevitably  immediately over the whole region of  human life?���������-London Chronicle.  A Simple Method o." Curing Pork That  ��������� Has Given Satisfaction  One of the important problems that  is confronting the farmer who wishes  to keep his expenses as low as possible  is the one of curing his pork for. consumption during the summer months.  The following is a quick, sure and  cheap method which I have used for  the last twelve years without a single  failure.  Before the carcass of the pig has become cool I cut it up, taking out the  parts I witih to cure. These parts I  prod all over with a common table-  fork* so that, no air bubbles or blood  will be cased up inside.- J then place  a side of pork in a box that I have  made for the purpose from common  wood and about .four feet long, two  and a half feet while and eight inches  deep- Over this side I sprinkle two  tablespoonfuls of saltpetre, then throw  salt upon itmntil the meat is covered.  Upon the top of this side I place the  other side and treat in a similar manner, and also the same with the hams.  Every day for the first week pour the  brine off the meat, and add more salt  if the meat is not covered with it; by  the end of the second week the meat  has become dry. I then take pepper  and sprinkle all over the meat so as to  prevent it from becoming mouldy, and  after that I place the meat in empty  flour sacks and hang away in some  cool place until needed.  Pork cured in this manner will keep  for two or three years, and it has not  the briny or smoky taste that most  cured pork has.���������H.E.A., in Grain  Growers' Guide.  a  e're  j?

Farm is Place of Opportunity  Speaking before the experimental  farm superintendents recently ' assembled in convention at Ottawa, Mr.  George H. Clark, Dominion seed commissioner, sounded a note which is of  special interest at the present crisis  in Canadian agriculture. In prefacing  his address he said: "Unfortunately  farming during the last ten years or  more has been less attractive, to young  men of good ability and to capital than  other industries in urban centres- The  problem of farni- labor has been an  exce-idingly perplexing one and in consequence farm systems have been  modified so as-to require the minimum  of labor for the maximum yield of net  returns. City industries have completely outbid the farm in the matter  of labor, and it is probably true that  if the opportunities in the city looked  brighter during the past ten years, the  next ten years, in my judgment, assuredly belong to the farm, and the  sooner they realize that the better for  themselves and for all concerned.

Let the yearlings vjtake care of themselves- When,  the opposite is true, then it is too often a case of making the yearlings  stand the worst of it. When milk is  high, it is a case of force the cow and  starve the yearling.  This is one of the biggest kind of  mistakes. All experiment goes to  show that gains may be more economically made upon yearlings than with  other cattle- It costs less to feed a  yearling enough to keep it alive to begin with, and the rest goes to make  beef or growth. It doesn't pay to neglect the calf when it is a yearling,  ever expecting to mak/j it up again to  the calf or to yourself.  '������������������DON'T WEAK A TRUSS.  Ilrooks' Appliance.

Canadian Grain Will be Entered  It has been ;.nnounced by the Exposition authorities at San Francisco,  that Canadian grain and alfalfa, forming part of the Canadian Pacific Hail-  way exhibit there, will be considered  eligible for awards. To appreciate this  decision it should be pointed out that  this grain was not originally entered  in competition, but was used for display purposes, as part of the company's exhibit, and the fact that the  exposition authorities have decided  to consider this grain when awarding  prizes is a very great compliment to  it, and to those districts in which it  was grown.

The availableJFrench statistics from  official reports gathered early -in the  war, that :'., for the first four months,  seemed to indicate that up to. December 1st, a little less than "A/, per cent  of the wo-.mds went on to fatal termination. This figure seemed so ohv  in comparison with the death rate of  other wars, as to bo almost incredible  until it was realized-what magnificent  strides conservative surgery and the  antiseptic treatment of wounds have  n.ade during the last generation.  In the Crimean war 15.HI per cent,  of the French wounded died from their-  injuries. In the Fren:h-ltalia!.-Austrian  war of 1859-1860, the percentage or  death among the French wounded was  nearly 17.0 per cent. The conditions as  regards nationality, high development  of surgical practice and army medical  organization so far as that was in being were the same in both cases and  were the best in the world at the time,  although the losses, it can well be.  understood, were appalling.

The future of this country, depends upon ourmaking every acre productive- Broadly speaking, the earth's  surface can be made productive in two  ways only, by producing agricultural  or timb.u- crops. South of the 60th  parallel, about 69 per cent, of the  area of Canada is unsuited -for agricultural croi-s. .A very large proportion of this non-agricultural land is  suitable for the production of merchantable timber. The production of  forest products has been and will always been one of our chief industries.  At the present lime forest industries  supply 12 per cent, of our, foreign  trade, 16 per cent, of our railroad traffic, aud equal in value to our annual  wheat crop. We have a.choice to  make. Shall we let these valuable industries perish for want of raw material or shall we perpetuate them by  protection of our present- mature timber from tire, by -protection of the  young forests of our non-agricultural  lands, and by the logging of our forests in such a manner as to encourage the reproduction of valuable fof-  ests? The perpetuation of these industries and their source off;rawmateria; by the investment of'"such expenditure as the anticipated crop will  warrant is forestry.���������H. It. MacM.

In 1797  Napoleon Bonaparte extinguished the  Venetian republic. She regained her|  possession in 1814 and a year later  a Lombardo-Vehetian kingdom was  established.  After a revolution in 1840 Austria  obtained the territory but in 1866 was  compelled to relinquish it to Italy.  THE ONLY MEDICINE  FOR LITTLE ONES  "My wife made me a success," remarked the'man.

She  tells   her own story:  "I"did not helieve coffee caused my  trouble, and frequently said I liked it  so well I would not, and could not,  quit drinking it, but I was a miserable sufferer from heart trouble and  nervous, prostration for four years."  (Tea is just as injurious as coffee,  because'it, too, contains the health-  destroying  drug,  caffeine.)  "I was scarcely able to be around,  ,,2iad no energy and did not care   for  anything. . Was emaciated and had a  constant pain around my heart until  I thought I could not endure it.  "Frequently" I had nervous chills  and the least excitement would  drive sleep away,- and any little  noise would upset me terribly. I  - was gradually getting worse until  anally I asked myself what's the use  of being sick all the time and buying  medicine so that I could indulge myself in coffee?  ''So I got some Postum to help me  quit. I made it strictly according to  directions and I want to toll you that  change was the greatest step in my  life. It was easy to quit coffee because I now like Postum better than  me coffee.

Driftwood That Finds an Anchorage  in the Role of a Farm Hand  In our fathers' days the farmhand  was the son of a neighboring farmer,  working by the month for the'first payment on a farm of his own. Now he  is usually a bit of human driftwood  floating on an unchartered sea, with no  anchorage for the winter save perilous  roadsteads like I-Iinky Dink's place in  "Chi." A letter from a South Dakota  farmer throws a flood of light, not altogether pleasant, on this generally  neglected phase of country-life development:  "Here are a few of the more striking  men who have worked for us in the  past few years: The'son of a member  of the British parliament, the nephew  of a celebrated .surgeon, a chocolate  colored Maltese globe-trotter, a sidetracked civil engineer whose education  extended ^through integral and differential calculus, a British sailor, a  United States cavalryman, two prizefighters, an ex-convict, a long-haired  poet, a barber, an escaped inmate, of  the States Hospital for the- Insane at  Cherokee, Iowa, a locomotive engineer,  and a man who said that his last job  had been boring holes in macaroni."  Rather different from the men one  visualizes as joining the family at  mealtime on a western farm, isn't it?  "Most of them," continues our farmer-correspondent, "were defectives in  some way, but none of them were,  worse" for their sojourn with us. They  were not all incompetent���������and we  can judge men only by the way they  do their work."���������Colliers.  Germany Has Lost Her Soul  Two Theories of Human Nature That  Will Fight Each Other Out  Germany has losj; her soul and  morally isolated her people to an extent that makes it difficult for us to  realize how it is possible to negotiate  a peace wtih her. What has her policy of frightfulness accomplished in  the way of material gain? Her brut-  alization of Belgium has created a  moral and material difficulty from  whose coils the contortions of her travellers in intrigue, like Herr Dern-  burg, will never release her. The sinking of the Lusitania turns America into an avowed or a virtual associate  of the allies. But a not less important effect is the "immense stimulation  it has administered to the spirit of  her adversaries.- Is that negligible?  Perhaps���������to a stupid materialism such  as her3. But not to those who measure  events in terms of human thought and  feeling rather than in numbers and  material alone. If her poisonous gases  deal out a frightful form of death .to  some hundreds' of British and French  officers and men, they also multiply  tenfold the vim of the armies or Flanders and France. The two theories of  human nature will fight each other  out, and we need not doubt where the  victory will be.���������London Nation.  .Revolt of the West  It is all very well to pass resolutions  and send memorials to the government, and as long as the farmesr do  that and nothing else both political  parties will'love the farmers as they  do now;"but they will never give them  anything approaching a square deal.  The time for resolutions and menv-  orials is past In 191/five hundred  farmers from western Canada went to  Ottawa and demanded square deal legislation. It cost them probably close-  to $50,000 to send the delegation to  Ottawa, and they didn't get 15 cents*  worth of helpful legislation in return  for it.- Now, if the farmers are willing  to forget that they have ever been Grit  or Tory, and are willing to dig up another $50,000 or more to carry on the  campaign for the election of independent" candidates, they will get results,  and good results.���������The Grain Growers'  Guide.  The "Dominion" of Canada  "We are accustomed to take the expression of the "Dominion" of Canada  for granted; but the original of that  somewhat unusual word is known to  very few.' When at length the great  scheme of Sir John Macdonald was  realized, and the nine provinces grouped themselves together into one great  confederation, a serious difficulty was  presented by the choice of a suitable  name. For a time almost a deadlock  ensued.  At length one old member of parlia-.  ment rose from his seat and told his  colleagues that he had read in his  Bible that very morning the words:  "His dominion shall be from the one  sea to the other." Accordingly he suggested that Canada should be known  as the Dominion, or God'r, Land. The  suggestion seized upon the hearts and  imaginations of those present and it  was promptly acted upon.���������Pall Mall  Gazette- "  "Safety First"  The Motto of the Merchants Bank of  Canada  The statement of the Merchants  Bank of Canada which is published in  this issue, and whic:. is well worthy of  close study, shows clearly that the  management have strained every effort to prepare this institution for any  sudden call, and now with over twenty-one millions of actual cash assets,  and an increase of one-third over  last year's good showing of "quick assets," it faces any temporary financial  disturbance with unruffled front.  Yet this has been done without  materially affecting commercial loans  in Canada, with, considering the  shrinkage in general business, cannot  be considered to show a serious drop,  the reduction being only about 10%���������  while loans on stocks, etc., show a  slight increase in Canada but a decrease of almost two millions outside  of Canada.  From a shareholder's point of view  the fact that "While profits have fallen  off, yet the usual dividends have been  earned and paid, must be a satisfaction, while every one will rejoice at  the generally healthy condition revealed by the bank's statement-  The management have shown that  they are not'mere fair weather pilots,  and .while they have reaped the benefits accruing from their past wisdom of  accumulating a good reserve against  the proverbial rainy day, they have  been able without any dislocation of  current business to make an unpre-  cedently strong showing, one which  will inspire us all with increased confidence in their institution.

Graphite is the Substance With Which  Writing is Done  A prim young lady, fresh from the  realms of higher education, recently  appeared at the office of a prominent  manufacturer of lead pencils, and presented credentials as a health department investigator and announced her  desire to study conditions in the factory with reference to lead poisoning.  Just as "pigs is pigs," so to her lead  was lead. Such literal-mindedness is  hardly to be expected of the average  mortal, but if the fair investigator  had called to inquire as to the actual  nature or the product made and just  why it had to share names with something equally common, but totally different, the memory of her visit would  have been less likely to have been  perpetuated in the guise of the traditional factory joke.   .  Most persons are aware that lead  pencils are not made of lead, but that  the so-called black lead ia them is a  full brother to the coal and to the  aristocratic diamond, and that it is  identical with many other substances  in common use, such as the blacking  on the kitchen range, are additional  facts not nearly so well known- A recently installed exhibit in the National Museum's division of mineral  technology shows the various forms  of graphite, including natural and  manufactured as well as the various  ingredients used in the industry.  For a number of years the chief supply of natural graphite has come  from Ceylon where the mineral occurs in massive veins. Another prominent graphite field lies in the Tun-  kinsk mountains of Siberia, and Mexico also has a rather important source  in Sonera. In the United States, Montana lias the only occurrence, other  than of flake graphite, thug far encountered.  A Comprehensive Map  C.P.R.

This map is minute and comprehensive to the last detail. Every inch  of railway, every tiniest islet, rearing  its head in the lake or river, every city  and town and village, it might be  said, in the whole of the Dominion, is  limned in characters which, however  minute, are entirely legible.  The double tracking is shown; the  course of each system from its commencement to its ending set forth;  nothing had escaped the faithful and  able chartographers or mapographers,  if one may use the words,-so that at  a glance the high officers of the company may see the course of the system, the river, the lake, the mountain,  the stream, in any part of the  Dominion.

N ���������_ ____________  School Children and Forestry  The forestry division of the North  Carolina Geological and Economic Survey    recommends    the   collecting of  wood samples, leaves, nuts, etc., as a  profitable  diversion  for children.    It  publishes a bulletin on this subject in  connection with a competition the Central Carolina Fair association has arranged, offering ?20 in six prizes for  collections of native woods and leaves.  In both cases  specimens    are  to be  named.    Competitors are to be children, under 16 years.   The forestry department  approves  the  idea,  stating  that the child's natural desire for collecting may furnish one of the readiest^ avenues for instruction. To secure  the' best results parents should direct  the efforts and teachers should recommend books on the work.    It is suggested   that, a   collection   . of   forest  seeds would be an instructive object  lesson as so many people do not know  what the seeds of the commonest trees  look like.   The flowers and leaves of  native   shrubs,   wild    flowers,   ferns,  mosses and grasses are mentioned as  being well deserving of collection for  county fair exhibits.

ROYALITB OIL  GIVH3  BEST RESULTS  THE IMPERIAL  OIL  COMPANY  Limited" .-  Often Indicate Over-work,  and a Run Down Nervous  System    -  Overwork and worry have an evil  effect on the system and often give  'rise to nervousness and sleeplessness.  Other signs include a weak back,  headaches and indigestion..In time if  matters are neglected a complete  breakdown of the nervous system follows. On every hand one can observe  victims, of this state of nervous exhaustion who are at a loss to know  what to do with themselves, their nervous debilitated state having baffled  all ordinary treatment.  If you are a victim of exhausted  nerves,'"if your symptoms are as described above, you need Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills because they are a powerful  nerve tonic- Their strengthening action on weak nerves is due to the fact  that they .enrich and build up the  blood through which the nerves are  fed. Under the tonic influence of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills all traces of nervous weakness disappear together  with the headaches, the insomnia, the  feeling of intense weakness and depression of spirits that mark the victim' of nervous ailments. Here is the  proof. Mr. Henry Marr, Port Felix,  N.S., says: "It gives me greatest pleasure to "testify as to the value of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. When I began  their use I was a physical wreck; my  nerves were all unstrung, I suffered  from frequent headaches and backaches, and was almost wholly unfitted  for work- I had tried several remedies  without'success, when I finally decided to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a  trial: I took six boxes and they made  me a well man."  What these Pills did for Mr. Marrv  they will do for every other weak and  nervous man, if given a fair trial.

War and the Coal Supply  It is thought that in some .countries the coal supply is nearing the  end- If this be the case, however,  there is sufficient to go round for  the whole world, but in war time  when blockades exist there can be  no import, it is estimated that the  world coal reserves amount to-7,397,-  533,000,000 tons.  Of anthracite coals, Asia, with the  great ChiLese fields, has by far the  largest supply of any of the great  continental divisions, being able to  furnish 407,637,000,000 tons. The  world's production of coal for 1910  was about 1,145,000,000 tons. Consequently after allowing for areas-  which cannot be economically mined,  there should be sufficient coal left  for many hundreds of years, although the present war will cause a  big reduction in coal stocked for  emergency.  Worms in children work havoc.  These pests attack the tender lining  of the intestines and, if left to pursue  their ravages undisturbed, 'will ultimately perforate the wall, because  these worms are of the hook variety  that cling to and feed upon "interior  surfaces. Miller's Worm Powders will  not only exterminate these worms, of  whatever variety, but will serve to repair the injury they have done.  Do not keep ducks and chickens in  the same house or the same runs.  Their habits are too dissimilar, one or  the other will not do well. Ducks require a different method of feeding  and should be yarded away from the  fowls.

"1 decided among other things that  1 ought to have ripe tomatoes for the  early market.to eaten the good prices.  So early in February 1 planted an  early variety in three boxes that I  placed in front of the south windows  of a room in the house. In the latter  part of March I transplanted some of  the plants to small pasteboard boxes  ���������one plant to each box. This enabled  me to move them to the open without,  disturbing the roots'. As soon as'it  was warm enough* I-,set the rest in a  cold frame, four inches apart each  way. In April I planted the late  variety in the hotbed.  "The plants in the cold frame and  in the pasteboard boxes were very vigorous and had some blooms when I  transplanted them-to the op'jn on May  twentyrsecond. In all, I had mora than  600 plants.

Wo  came to this farm during.the spring of  1914, which gave us a garden full of  weeds, and I had my hands full keeping these pests under control. It was  very dry and the plants did not grow  very tall- So I decided not to stake  them, but kept up the hoeing until the  tomatoes began to ripen.  ELOISE  PARSONS  Iowa's Champion in Tomato-Club Work  ��������� "I picked my first ripo tomatoes on  July ninth. At first 1 got ten cents a'  pound for them, but soon the price  broke and after September I couldnot  get more than two cents a pound for  tnem. " >  "After school opened I was kept  busy picking. For several weeks it  took me three evenings a week'to get  over the entire patch. I often gathered  us many as ten.bushels. On the twelfth  and thirteenth of October I had'to  pick the green tomatoes���������in all, 1,083  pounds. There was no sale for these.  We used all we could at home and  gave many to the neighbors, but still a  great many went to waste. In all, we  used 3,381 pounds at home-  ��������� "I made ���������a collection of fruits and  vegetables, canned them and pv.t them  on exhibit at the state fair. The exhibit took a first prize. For this exhibit and .for my ether club work I  also won a second aud a fourth prize.  I .also canned thirty .quarts of apples, ten quarts of gooseberries, six  pints of b<-ans and a hundred quarts  of tomatoes.  '���������During the state fair I helped to  record and care for the exhibits sent  in by Hie various club members. And  at Clarinda I gave a canning demonstration for the county teachers' meeting. I used my ow>. canner, tor.uiotcs,  apples, and most of my collection of  canned fruits and vegetables to dem-  strate how the work is done.  '"My expenses in connection with  my tomato work were ������15.Gl. My  profits were $115-57, besides $23 in  prizes won at the state fair. I have  enjoyed this work; it has enabled me  not only to earn my own spending  'money but to pay my expenses at the  farm camp. Then, too, I have built  up a snug little bank account."  This girl lives at Clarinda, Page  county, Iowa. The club work in her  section was led by Mrs. Sarah Huf-  talen, county superintendent.  When O. II. Benson, in charge of  club work in the Northern, Central  and Western states, stopped over one  day at the Chemawa Indian school,  Clarion county, Oregon, to give a lecture and demonstration on home canning, he little thought that the lessons  he taught would bring such results as  materialized shortly afterward.  , The Indian girls took up canning  with   a  determination  to  turn  out  a  canning team that would do credit to  tueir school and to enter tiie canning  contests held in connection with the  .Land Products Show at Portland, Oregon. The Indian cannin,; team won  uie first prize in the tnree days' canning contest at"last fall's show.  Tness girls competed with the champion team of girls from Pleasant  i-tome High school/ They were required to can salmon, .vegetables,  truits and practically -every farm product. There is hardly a school, section, class or race in this country today that has not adopted home canning as a profitable method of converting surplus and waste products of  the. garden rand "orchard into wholesome foods. The home-canning outfit  is teachingthe new generation Cue basic principles of conservation and  thrift.  Florida's girl champion in club work  for 1914 is Pettie DeShong.'She won  fifty dollars in gold from the State  Bankers' association and fifty dollars  from the State Federation of Women's |  clubs. She is a Hillsboro county girl  ami has won the county championship  for three years. Just as she was ready  for college her club work profits ana  prizes < made it possible for her to pay  her own expenses. All her prize  money has been invested in education.  "My club work has helped me to  learn about the soil, plants,and nature  generally," says she. "Besides, the  club work made it possible for me to  earn my own money at home. Two  years ago I won a'short course scholarship at Tallahassee. .I'm now in college at Tallahassee.  "My father's tomato patch in 1914  was four acres, unstakecr��������� and -tin-  pruned. My sister and I had.one-fifth  of an acre together. Our patch yielded  one-fourth of the output from the entire farm.  "On July eleventh my: tenth of an  acre was cleared and broken. I planted-  fifty cents' worth of turnip seed. The  turnips were ready -for sale in six  weeks, and it took-only a little work  on my part to sell seventeen dollars'  worth in the market- The expenses  amounted to $4.30 for time and fertilizer, giving me a profit of $12.70. Then  I raised a crop of hay���������125 pounds  cured. In addition to this work I put  up one hundred glasses of jelly and  seventy bottles or catsup for home  use."

Adding the value of her prizes to the  net returns from sales of her crop, she  made a total of $496 on her tenth of an  acre.'  (The Manitoba Agricultural College,  Winnipeg, will be very glad to send  any person further information about  home canr.ing if they write to Prof.  C. H. Lee, Agricultural College, Winnipeg).  The boy or girl who becomes discouraged in club work because of  some mistake that has interfered with  immediate success loses a good chance  to convert that mistaken into something most valuable. The experience  of Bertha Bailey, who made the second best records in garden and canning club 'work in Kentucky, for 1914,  should interest every club member.  "With my first cans of tomatoes,"  says this girl, "I let them exhaust tor]  five minutes, then cooked them for  seventeen minutes more���������making in  all,^twenty-two,, .minutes. About' the  third day F foundthat; a number of my  cans; had spoiled; 'I- couldn't eat or  sleep until I found out what was the  trouble.

In addition she  iPrehistoric Methods  All  Civilized  Powerj  Declare Against  the Use of Poisonous Gas in  Warfare  There can be, and there has been,  on this side of the Atlantic at least,  no public approval of the employment  of these suffocating bombs. They belong to the stone age, to the days before history was written- They are of  a piece of barbarism which led the  savages to dip the barbs-of their arrows in poison���������a species of warfare  that sought success by extermination.  To some there doer not appear to be  much difference between killing with  gunpowder and with a poisonous gas.  I Indeed.vif there is any hvimanitv in the  one-over.the"other,, it is in the^method  that makes for an easy de^th.  But the reproach of cruelty lies in  the fact that the enemy has no chance  to'defend himself. He is put to sleep,  as the Frenchanm says, and then put  to death. Such killing seems to fall  little short of murder.  And this is the view taken generally  by the civilized powers as witness the  action of The Hague conference for  the promotion of peace and the mitigation of the horrors of Avar in 1899 and  later in 1907. The second declaration  made against the use of asphyxiating  gas bombs was srubscribed to by every  one of the eleven belligerents in this  war, including Germany.���������Buffalo  Commercial. ^  THE MONSTER GUNS OF THE QUEEN ELIZABETH  An  English  Writer   Gives  a   Graphic  Description  of the Most  Powerful Warship Afloat in any Waters���������Nine Huge  Vessels will soon be Added to the Fleet  An English correspondent, assigned  to report the operations iu the Dardanelles, describes his arrival at the anchorage of the allied fleet, in the following words:  .  Now,we round a bend and come in  sight of a portion'.of the fleet. The  ���������first'sight which greets our eyes are  the fighting-tops of the mighty Queen  Elizabeth���������the most powerful warship  afloat la any waters. Her huge body  is hidden, by some low-lying-land.  Shades of Nelson! But suddenly we  see tC destroyer dashing her way towards us and flying the French flag.  It is hard to believe that within two  days'- gentle steaming of where the  Battle of the Nile was fought, a century after Trafalgar, a French destroyer is engaged in protecting England's battleships, v  We give our'TTumber, and the destroyer retires satisfied, and we made  our way slowly ��������� in- Then a torpedo-  boat, this time flying British colors,  dashes up and asks if we know our  way among the rocks and shoals. We  do not and frankly admit the same, so  she gives us a friendly lead. Half an  hour later we are amongst the battleships, cruisers, storeships and destroyers. Everything in the navy is organized down to the smallest detail.  Our captain sees a comfortable looking, unoccupied berth, and makes for  it to anchor. On a battleship close by  a sailor sits astride the bride and  starts furiously, waving little flags.  These cannot be read from our bride  and both officers and men lack practice at the rapid reading of signals,  so we have to turn the ship and go  back. Tfcu little flags tell us that a  berth has been assigned for us at the  other end of the bay. When we are  half way across a pinnace steams up  and two officers come on board who  take charge of the ship and conduct  us personally to. our anchorage.  This same .pinnace, once we are  safely anchored, takes me across to  the Queen Elizabeth, to visit the admiral.   This, tlu- latest of our super-  dreadnoughts, is a revelation. She only  carries eight 15-inch guns, and a secondary armament of 6-iuch. But those  eight make every other gun you have  ever seen look ridiculous and contemptible. The gunners say they can  almost land oil a penny- at 15,000  yards, even with three-quarter  charges. They have already done soma  wonderful shooting right across tho  Gallipoll peninsula, over the low-lying  ground near Gaba Tepe. The great  ship has in turn received her baptism  of fire, and has beeu struck by three  shells, one of which came through the  gun room, but fortunately, all the midshipmen were at their stations, '���������, and  no one Avas hurt. Another came  through her unprotected side, high up,  but burst Avithout doing any damage.  The third, I think, hit her funnel.  You get a good idea of what a complete command of the sea we have obtained, when you see hoAV we are able  to spare this, our lates and most powerful dreadnought, for the operations  against the Dardanelles, instead of  hurrying her off, as soon as completed,  to Sir John Jellicoe someAvhere; in the  North Sea. Very shortly there will be  four other Queen Elizabeths ready for  active service; therefore, if the Ger-  mxns ever intend to leave the shelter  of the Kiel canal, they had better do  so soon. They haA'e no ships afloat  which can compare in gun-power with  the Queen Elizabeth.  A short distance from .the Queen  Elizabeth lies the Dreadnought cruiser  Inflexible. Thia ship has seen more  fighting in the war than almost any  other vessel in the fleet. She was one  of Admiral Si: Doveton Sturdee'a  squadron when he put an end to Von  Spree and his squadron off the Falkland Islands: The officers tell you that  that action was child's play to.Avhat  they had to face on March 18th,'-when  the great attack was made on the Dardanelles. The Inflexible suffered  heavily. Her foretop Avas hit by a  shell, which killed, or wounded all of  those up aloft but two seamen.  Make Yourself a Neighborhood Leader  The call is for leaders. The call is  for plain farmers and farmers' wives  and farm boys and farm girl to make  -themselves leaders in their neighborhoods���������leaders -for -new.-"-methods 0f  farming, and leaders also in neAV  methods, of farm living.  :��������� The old individualistic un-Christian  Avay of living must be forever done  away with. The old doctrine of "Every  man for himself and the devil take  the hindermost" must give way to the  neAV doctrine, "Bear ye one another's  burdens.' Co-operation is the master-  Avord of the new century. Whole  neighborhoods must learn to Avork together.���������The Progressive Farmer.

Is the Small  Farm Passing  The Banker Should Assist in  Helping  the   Small   Farmer to  Succeed  Some students of the problem have  concluded that the day of the small  farmer is ended, and that hereafter  Ave must depend upon the large capitalist farmer or the farming corporation. That would be a pity. Where  the two have equal opportunities, the  small or middle-sized farmer has  ahvays beaten the big farmer and  the farming corporation .in competition. There are only two conditions  under Avhich the big capitalist farmer has Avon out. The first is where  lie has had a large supply of cheap  labor, such as slaves, or gangs of  coolie laborers, which he -could direct and control. The independent  small farmer avIio work:; with his  OAvn hands has then found himself  compelled to compote with these  cheap laborers, and he has had a  "hard toav to hoe." The other condition is AA'here the big farmer, or me.  big farming corporation has had  some advantage in bargaining. If he  can buy his supplies to better advantage, if he can secure capital on  more favorable terms, if he can sell  his produce to better advantage, he  may succeed in competition Avith the  small farmer. But Avhen it comes  to the real Avork of production, as  distinct from bargr.iniug���������that is, as  distinct-from hiring labor, borrowing  capital, buying supplies, or selling  produce���������the small farmer can beat  him and eventuall;- run him out of  business. That is, today, as a producer, the small farmer has no equal.  As a bargainer, he is ofton at a dis  advantage.  Here is where the banker may  come in and amply justify his existence. It i; not enough that he sit in  his office and scrutinize the security and collateral of the Avould-ba  borrower. That is the job of a  cashier, or some oi.e Avithout discretion, avIio must follow fixed rates. ];  is the banker's job to see that the  money which Jones borroAved is so  used as to pretty surely provide him  with the money with which to pay  his debt when It is due. By this is  meant that tho banker's function is  to finance productive enterprises,  and his first qualification is the  ability to decide Avhat is and what  is not a productive enterprise. That  is what a good investor is. The  banker, especially the country banker, ought to be a good judge of investments. There may bo room for a  finer differentiation of functions in  a city, Avhcre some bankers may bo  financiers, and others mere custodians of funds, to receivo deposits, on  the other hand, ant. lend thorn out on  good security on tho other. But a  country banker must be both.  Jim���������Did Pat throw up his Job la  the powder mill?  Tom���������No; the job threw Pat up-���������  about 200 feet.
