Demuth enlisted in the spring of  1915 as a private in No. 3 Canadian  General Hospital "McGill," rose' to  . the"Vrank of sergeant, and before  ldiiviog for England was awarded  his degree in medicine. When  the hospital unit- arrived in Eng  land his services were commandeered  for the Royal Army medical corps,  ' a'fid^'he was'_(-_.& to Ireland to' train  for a commission Upon qualifying  he was stationed at Malta, and  there' contracted typhoid. When  convalescent, Demuth was placed  in.charge of an artillery group training in Eugland, and later went to  France as M O.-of an Anzac brigade,  ' heavy artillery. In September, 1916,  he was wounded on the Somme and  invalided to Canada. Upon recovery  he again went to'France and the  second time wounded in June.  Captain Demuth is a sou of Fred  Demuth, who was stationed in this  city for a number of years-as-su-  perintendent of the Kettle Valley  railway.  CANADA PROUD .OF  HER GALLANT SONS  found his wife' lying dead on the  bedroom floor when he came off  shift Monday morning. . Besides  her. husband, deceased is survived  by two young- sons The family  moved here from Nelson about five  years'Ago. Much symputhy is expressed for the bereaved husband  in tbe untimely death ot his wife,  and for the children in' the loss of a  kind mother. '" ���������'���������'������������������  The funeral was held yesterday  afternoon from Holy Trinity church,  and it was largely attended by the  citizens generally. Tbe mother of  the deceased arrived in the city yesterday from Regina to attend her  daughter's funeral, and a sister of  Mrs. Marks came oyerfrom Nelson  on - Wednesday on the samevsa"d  mission. -  AID. TO RUSSIA'S  NEW DEMOCRACY  Washington, A ue. 23.���������While the  troops are hammering ^Russia, a  conference was held here which is  believed to forecast speedy assistance to the new democracy. The assistance may take the form of a new  loan, enabling Russia- to' replenish  her supplies and keep her transportation systems running.   ,  Distressing developments iu Russia have been rumored here for several clays, the state department admitting receiving confidential reports from Petrograd.which it care-,  fully hides. .Commissioner Elihu  Root consulted with Secretary of  State Robert Lansing.  Charles Edward Russell, a member of the Russian commission,  charged that sinister influence was  working to discredit Russia as at  democracy and to try and alienate  Russia from the United States. He  hreatene d to disclose the persons  behind the propaganda if ifc continued, but said the pacifists were  not responsible.  William Dinsmore, Eighteen  Years a Resident' Here,  - Passes Away  AUTOCRACY TREMBLES  ON EDGE OF DISASTER  Yesterday's Vancouver Province  says-���������that.., William Dinsmore, of  Grand Forks,;d:ed in the Vancouver  general hospital' on Wednesday. He  went to that city about two weeks  ago to have his'illness treated there.  The deceased was born in Ireland  in 188(5, coming to Canada when  sixteen years old. He has "'resided  iu various parts of the Dominion  for sixty-five years. The last eighteen years of his life he lived in  Grand Forks. He was a shoemaker  by trade, operating a shop on the  corner of Main and Keefer streets,  Vancouver, from 1888 to 1899. In  this city he has been engaged in the  same business. An Orangeman lor  over sixty years and grand master  of his lodge for .thirty years is his  record with that organization. - Surviving him are two sons, Stanley, of  this city, and William, traffic superintendent of the B. C. Electric  railway in Vancouver, and a.daughter, Mrs. Topen, of Vancouver. Another son, Sergt: Robert, who "went  overseas with the 5-ith battalion,  was killed at the front. The funeral  services was held in Vancouver to  day at 2:30 o'clock.  - W. Pratt, general superintendent  of the sleeping and dining car department of the C.P.R., has issued  instructions that no young meats,  such as early spring lamb, veal,  young chickens or squab? will be  supplied. Fresh roasts must not be  used every day. Colu meats must  be used up in some form without  waste. Fish is to be served .freely  accoiding to the kind most pleutiful  in the sections operated. Butter and  lard must beavoided|as[much as possible iu. cooking. Sour milk and  cream to be utilized, and every scrap  farmers are at present much concerned about the surtax which the  provincial government is imposing.  With the object of discussing the  situation and formulating a resolution of protest to be forwarded to  the government, a number- of  proment farmers have called a meeting to be held in the board of trade  rooms, Grand Forks, on ^Saturday,  Aug'dst 25;jat S p.m. Every farmer  of tbe district is urged to be present  and to express his views in the  matjer.  ��������� It is uncertain whether'the sun  or the forest fires are responsible for  the superheated atmosphere cthat  we have been compelled to endure  during the week. The forest fires in  this vicinity are certainly numerous  enoughAto render old Sol valuable  assistance, and they give promise  of remaining on\ the job nntil the  next rain, arrives, which will  probably be before next spring.  During the week we have been  treated to quite.a pretty display of  forest fireworks on the mountain  side north of the city. ^  Yesterday Canadians Were  at tlie Hottest Point-on  the British Front  Ottawa, Aug. 23.���������Sir Edward  Kemp,-minister of militia, has sent  the following congratulatory cablegram to Sir Arthur Currie:  "On behalf of all'ranks of our  military forces in Canada, I desire  to extend to you and to the officers  and-'.'men under your command  warmest congratulations upon the  splendid manner in which Canadian  troops have conducted themselves  during the fighting around Lens, in  defeating the pick   of   the  German  army   against   heavy     odd?,   and | this is the time you   cunningly   lift  steadfastly holding gains   made   in ' your voice in its.behalf."  the face of a.desperate and repeated!  counter-assault.

We say nominally "dry,"' because  under the Prohibition Act there is no limit to  the amount of liquor a person can have  shipped into the province and stored at his  place of domicile for the use of himself and  his friends. "This fact will probably act as a  deterrant against an outbreak of an epidemic  of suicides among the incurable topers.  According to Elihu Root there is- abundant  hope for Russia. . He says: "The Russians  have self-control equalled in few countries of  the world. They have consistency of purpose;  they have, a most kindly and ingrained respect���������not only respect���������regard for the rights  of others. They will not .willingly do an injustice to anyone,and that sense of justice carries  with it a broad character. They have a noble  idealism, which is developed and exhibited in  the minds that are enlarged by education ;  they have a strong" sense of the mission of  liberty in the world, and they have an extraordinary capacity for concerted action." If  their character is unequal to the task, all .the  aid of all the great countries in the world can  not give themtheir freedom. Freedom must  ���������find its foundation, its sure foundation/within  the people themselves, and we think the Russians "have thatrsure foundation;  In 1915 and 1916 Manitoba lakes produced  48,000,000 pounds of'fish, 25 per cent'of  which vyas exported to the ��������� United States.  For 9,000,000. pounds of wliitefish the fishermen received on tho average 5 cents a pound.  In some Canadian cities Manitoba whitefish  sells at 15 cents a pound or more. It is said  that the food controller for Canada is arranging to. reduce the wide margin between fishermen and consumers.  The British people, in the army and out,  need our entire surplus. They need more���������  they need part of .what we usually consume.  The HecU'ey Gazette suspended publication  last week. Jim Grier is ,probab]yuthc most  caustic paragrapher in British Columbia, and  his paper was always readable, but on some  subjects his mind' ran in a too decidedly narrow groove for a successful country editor.  If you can't be a fighter, don't be a waster.  In glancing^ over the prohibition map of the  United States, Ave notice that'the way a person can now reach San Francisco from New  York without travelling through "dry" territory is to go through the Panama or Suez  canals, around Cape Horn or through the  Strait of Magellan, by way of, the Arctic  ocean or around the Cape of Good Hope.

G.  ^=  -J  The view, says a dispatch, somewhat generally prevails at tho federal capital that snow-  time will be here before a general election  takes place in Canada. Parliament is still  grinding away with no suggestion of a let-up.  The idea that prorogation will take place by  the first of September has been practically  abandoned. There is sufficient legislation before the house to occupy its attention to the  end of the present- month, unless the proceedings are speeded up, and business still to come  down will include a more or less contentious  franchise bill and the supplementary estimates  These will, of necessity, be large, because provision will have to be made, among other  things, for the cost of conducting the election  in Canada and overseas. In 1896, when parliament declared a natural death on April 25.  the government fixed the date of the elections  on June 23, thereby allowing two months for  the contest. There is no arbitrary rule governing the matter, however, and in view of  the special circumstances now existing in connection with the taking of the soldiers' vote,  a longer period should be allowed. The situation is really governed by supply, and if the  estimates are voted the government will have  funds to last to the end of March. Early December is believed to be the earliest likely  date for the voting, and it may be deferred  until the midwinter.

In view of the scarcity of tin and the difficulty that the canning factories are having or  expect to have in getting cans enougn to take  care of their orders, it seems strange that the  tobacco companies have not been asked or  compelled to find a substitute for the immense  quantities of tin that they use in making tobacco boxes.

Evans, died at her  home near St. Peter, Minn., yesterday  morning, at the advanced age of  nearly eighty years. The funeral will  be held tomorrow, making impossible for the writer to reach his old  home in time to get a last look at bis  mother. Deceased-was the mother  of a large family-of children, six of  whom survive her���������John , Evans,  editor of the Clearwater Herald;  the writer, of this city; Mrs. Ramsay, of St. Paul; Mrs. Hynstrom, of  Chicago, and Charles and Fred  Evans, of St. Peter.  The family are real pioneers of St.  Peter, having lived there nearly  half a century. When they located  there in 1870 the town-was not far  removed from the Sioux Indian  frontier line. The country then  cousisted-principally of wild grazing  land and excruciatingly cold w nter  blizzards. Deceased lived long  enough to see it become the garden  spot of the state, and she was well  content to spend the autumn of her  life there. -' ���������  To record' the death of a loving  mother is' a severe task. "The writer  can imagine of none sadder or more  difficult. Yet it would be an un  natural son indeed did he not attempt, however weak may be his  effort, to pay some tribute to the  many excellent qualities of the person without whom he never  would have been. Deceased was a  dutiful wife, a kind and loving  mother, and a devout and life long  Christian. She was, above all  things, a womanly woman. That  expresses about all the virtues of a  mother, and at present I can say  no more, however much I should  like to immortalize her, in verse or  prose, had I the gift to do so.

This kind of rough  talk will be heard less here in town if  people troubled with corns will follow  the simple advice of this Cincinnati  authority, who claims that a few drops  of a drug called freezone when applied  to a tender, aching "corn stops soreness  at once, and soon the corn dries up  and lifts right out without pain.  He says freezone is an ether compound which dries immediately and  never inflames or even irritates the  surrounding tissue or skin. A quarter  of an ouncrj of freezone will cost very  little at any drug store, but is sufficient to remove every hard or soft  com or callus from one's feet.

"The Canadians in France,"  A Great War Map  Canadian homes will no longer have  difiicnlty in following the Canadian  troops in France. There has just been  issued a map of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first landed in France. It has been  made especially for the great Canadi  an weekly, the Family Herald anil  Weekly Star of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to Cancliah enterprise-  It is a marvel of detail and yet not.  crowded. It is in . four colors and  about 2������x8������-������feet and folded into a  very neat cover, about 5x10 inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  the regimental badges and "coat of  arms of nearly every battalion that  left Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at once. That portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names of towns and  battle scenes in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced,^.except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than two dollars a  copy, yet it can be had absolutely  free with The Family Herald.  The publishers of The Family Her  aid and Weekly Star for several  months back have been fighting hard  against the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate���������$I 25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much larger increase in the subscription price of Tho Family Herald, and  are surprised at the small extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should be still greater when this oiler  becomes known.  every-  The Sun rend is   read   by  body in the Kettle valley.
