Electors -Are .Eager to Hear  the   Leader of the  Party  The political meeting held in   the  the  opera   house  on Monday evening "was   by   far the largest Liberal  gathering witnessed here   for  years.  The presence of the Liberal   leader,  H. 0. Brewster, and   his   able   lieu  tenant, M  A   Macdormld,   of   Vancouver, undoubtedly ace muted  for  the large outpouring of the electors,  among whom there was a   fair  pro-  1 portion   of   Indie.--.    .All the seats in  the hall   were  occupied,   and  some  of ..the   standing   room   was taken.  The   audience   was   in   particularly  good humor,  and' all   the   speakers  were liberally   applauded  whenever  they made a telling point.   Even the  appearance of the government member,,Hon. Ernest   Miller,   president  ofthe   council,    who    spoke    for  twenty minutes, was greeted with   a  round   of applause  from   his supporters, of whom there  appeared to  be   quite   a   number, in   the   hall.  NeiLMeCallum, president of the  local  Liberal    association,    presided  over  the   meeting, and    in     brief  speeches introduced the speakers.  J. E. Thompson, the Liberal candidate, condensed-his address to ten  minutes    He appreciated the words  of encouragement that had been ex  tended ..���������him   by   the electors of the  kind on the statute books. He  thanked the chairman for the extra  ten minules extended him. j  of. ,A. Macdonald, of   Vancouver, ���������  i was heartily cheered as  he. stepped'  to   the   front   of   the platform.     He  was glad to learn that Oirnnd Forks  was fortunate in not   havirg   a   machine, because in some  of   the" districts he had visited he hud   learned  that the road   superintendents   were  also the presidents of the  Conservative   associations.      He   contended  that  a   machine did  exist   in   the  province,   and    scored     what     he  termed the government's pernicious  patronage system     The   remainder  of nis   time   was   taken   up with a  criticism of the government's financial policy. .  Ii. C. Brewster, loader of  the   op  position,   said   that   if the Liberals  were given power the women  would  ire granted the   franchise, while   the  best the Bowser-, government   could  j school, 9':-15 a.m.; preaching services  at 11 a.m. and 7.30 p.m., conducted  | by   Rev.

He   criticised    the  government's   land    policy    in    the  north.     He  asserted  that   the   best  lands were held by   speculators, and  that it was impossible for settlers to  locate in communities, and thus ob  tain    the   advantages   of  roads and  schools.    The speaker   was   glad to  learn that the patronage system did  not  prevail in Grand Forks.    Some  of the provisions of the agricultural  credits act were   roundly   criticised.  The   opposition    had   been   instru  mental in placing   more  good   laws  The   Vancouver   Province of  the  14th inst. says: "Mr. W. 10.   Know  ler   received   a   cable    this morning  announcing the death of Sergt. F. M.  Bird, who left   Vancouver with   the  29th battalion.    He was first wounded about ten months   ago, reeovered  and returned to the   front, where a  month   ago    he   was  wounded   the  seconded time.    He  has   now   died  of wounds.     He was   about   thirty  years of age and was a   member   of  the    Electrical    Construction    company   of   this,   city.  . lie was   well  known in the   business   community  and very popular."    Mr.   Bird   was  at one time city electrician of Grand  Forks, and he had a   large   number  of friends here.  The regular bi-weekly meeting of  the city council last Monday evening was adjourned until Friday, the  25th inst., on account of the political meeting in the opera house.

Mr. McGonnell  states    that   the  .^evaporating   plant    in     the     cannery building will be   operated   this  winter on the same lines   a3   it  was  last year.

Ernest Miller,   president   of  the council  in ' the  Bowser govern  ment,thanked the preceding speaker  for   the   kindly   reference   he    had  made to him.    Mr. iViller  contended   that   Premier Bowser's remarks  regarding the patronage system during his recent visit to the   city   had  been misinterpreted.    All   that   the  premier had intended to convey, he  ���������said, was that it would be quite natural   for   the   government to   listen  more attentively to the   requests  of  the district if presented by   a   member of the government   thun if they  were presented   by   a   member   in  opposition to it.    This,   the speaker  claimed, was the   system   which   is  today   practised   in   every    Liberal  province from   the   Atlantic to the  Pacific,   and   therefore  it could not  be   far   wrong.    He   denied   that a  Conservative machine existed in the  the conclusions arrived at by the  coast Liberal papers., The speaker  coQcluded his address by reviewing  the government's railway grants and  by explaining the object of his faun  ous writ. -  Dr. MacLean, of Greenwood, also  made a brief speech in support of  the local Liberal candidate, and  then the . meeting closed with the  sinking   by   the   audience  of   "God  -   structed on   Water  s.reet   from the  carloads of copper left Prince .Ru-  Great Northern station   to  Stanley  pert for New; Jersey.

He. has removed  with his personal staff from Whitehall  Gardens to the offices of the. Ministry  of Munitions in Whitehall Place.  These offices include the premises  known as Armament Buildings, and  those formerly occupied by the Hotel  Metropole. Considerable alterations  have been made inside the hotel, and  luxury has given place to business  furniture. Mr. Lloyd George has  selected for his own use a singularly  modest room on the second floor. In  his room the Minislw of Munitions  still uses his novel inkstand, which  consists of a shell ease, in which holes  have been pierced so that pens may be  inserted.  Sow the Best Seed  Seed Selection Pays the Grain Grower  ..'���������;���������   Every Time  livery intelligent farmer in this  country has learned in the costly  school of experience that it pays "to  sow or plant only the best of. seed.  The cost of cultivating, seeding and  harvesting is practically the same  whether poor seed i>r good seed is  used, and Ihe difference between the,  cost of poor sccj and gc M seed is  comparatively small when compared  with the- investment, vruv'e in the  above operations.

One or other must be sacrificed, and if we are to win the war  it is the standard of living at home  that must yield. Economy does not  mean hoarding money: it means releasing capital, and with it labor, from  satisfying private and domestic needs,  in order tb apply them to the production of things and the maintenance of  services required by the war. All expenditure on unnecessary things diverts capital and labor from that supreme object. Surely there is no difficulty in understanding that.���������London  Times.  benefit of seed selection than prob  ably any other man in this country.  For. ever twenty years he has been  ���������selecting- the best from; his growing  crop every.year and from the progeny  of -Hits'- carefully selected seed he has  again selected the best, Avith the result  that on his test plots he has produced  as high as eighty bushels per acre of  Marquis wheat. It is not possible to  bring every farm np to the high pitch  of cultivation and make every farmer  a specialist in seed selection or to  bring the average yield of wheat, up  to eighty bushels per acre. But it  would seem reasonable to expect that  the average might be brought, far  above seventeen to nineteen bushels  per acre, which was the rule prior to  the extraordinary crop of 1915. It  should bo remembered that the. methods adopted by Seager Wheeler which  have enabled him to win the world's  championship with-his-Marquis wheat  on three different occasions, and which  enabled Paul Gerlach of Allan, Sask.,  to win the world's prize on one occasion, can be followed by any farmer  of ordinary intelligence. These men  have clone-no -wheat-breeding. They  have only taken the best they could  find and year by year selected the best  from the best. Many farmers feel  that-.they cannot afford the time to  put in u quarter acre of carefully  selected seed and maintain this quarter acre plot, year after year for the  production of hand selected seed. But  if they were to figure carefully the  benefits -which might reasonably be  derived from 100 to 200 acres of wheat  produced from this selected seed, they  would find that in dollars and cents  the investment .would be a good one.  Seed selection carried on in this manner for a matter of five years would  raise the quality as well as the quantity of wheat produced on every acre  of the farm and the increase in cash  returns would be a Jiuge dividend on  the time and money spent in preparing a half bushel of-seed from it each  year. The Canadian Seed Growers'  Association is doing excellent work in  this direction and merits much more  widespread support than it receives  in this country.  mothers gladly give up (heir sons;  girls give up their sweethearts, and  wives give up their husbands. .The  tax payers dig deep into their pockets  and all wonder what else they can do.  ..-; While patriotism is ablaze from Vancouver to Quebec what are the rum"  sellers doing? They arc intervening  to balk their country's efforts. Did  Canada snivel and cringe and stutter  and wriggle and crawl concerning  this?   Not much.  Alberta led off by Aviping out the  saloons of the entire province.  Then along came Saskatchewan with  an anti-bar law, closing every dram  shop in her boundaries.  Then the people of Manitoba enacted a state wide prohibition law with  a two to one majority.  Then the Legislature of Nova Scotia met and enacted a state wide law  for that province.  -���������Now British Columbia is planning  to oust the disloyal traffic from her  boundaries.  In.the hour of public trouble whether it be in a municipal riot or whether it be a world wide war, the first  step necessary to success "is to close  the dirty and disloyal dram shop.  Like the Typhus, the saloon is always an evil and a source of trouble,  but this evil is accentuated in the hour  of public distress.

An Incorrigible Outlaw  Famous Western  Bucking  Horse  Will  be One of the Attractions at the  Moose Jaw Stampede  "Maple Creek," considered by western cattlemen to bo the best crooked-  bucking horse in the world, and the  animal that gave Emery LaGrande,  the world's champion bucking-horse  rider, the hardest ride of his career  at the Gleichen, Alta., Stampede last  year, has been secured to test the skill  of the cowboys who will ride at the  big Moose Jaw Stampede, July 11th  to 14th.  "Maple Creek" is a three 3-ear old,  and is owned by A. P. Day, of Medicine Hat. Originally he was the pet  saddle horse of an Alberta rancher's  daughter. One winter she left him in  the stable on an oat diet, and the first  time she. mounted him for a spring  r.'de he bucked her over the f erics into  the ditch. The rancher couldn't understand this, as he was always a  gentle horse, and he mounted "Maple  Creek," and was likewise precipitated  over the fence. 'Three of the young  wornarr's cowboy admirers then sought  to conquer the beast, and were themselves conquered, so that he was given  up as an incorrigible outlaw, no longer  fit for riding. It was then that Day  learned of him and purchased him for  the Gleichen Stampede and his reputation has been growing rapidly ever  since.  ' This famous horse, and a dozen of  others of great reputation as buckers,  will be seerr at the Stampede, and:  there arc many who are wagering that  more than one cowboy will wish  "Maple. Creek" and his kind had never  been heard of before the four days of  the Stampede have elapsed.  Disclaim Connection with Chain-Letter  The Canadian Branch of the Queen  Mary's Needlework Guild wish to disclaim any connection with a chain-  letter which is being circulated in  the name of the Guild by the New  York Branch. Though responsibility  in no way touches the Canadian  Branch, the ladies here regret that  such a method of obtaining money for  the Queen's Guild lias been resorted  to, and that it has got into this country, as the chain-letter system has  long since been condemned and fallen  into  disfavor.  Many   of  Them   Do  voir sav he lived in New York  The German Seventeen-inch Naval Gun Theory   ������������������Has at Last Been Exploded���������������������������   As to .the big 17-inch naval gun  theory, that was soon exploded., The  French had found the position of (he  gun that was firing info Dunkirk and  photographed it. It was found to be  not .1 naval gun at all, neither was it  of 17-inch calibre. It was qnly a German 15-inch siege howitzer embedded  in concrete and rigidly set at its max-  about double the weight of- the 15-  inch, gun. So,at tlie most four 17-  inch guns could only' be mounted on  a ship like the Queen Elizabeth, ear-.  ry.ing 17-inch guns. But owing to the  curvature of the earth, the maximum-  range at sea is about 10 miles. Now,  these 15-inch guns fire extremely effectively at such a range, and there  is not anything on the sea that could  irmini elevation so that it 'could riot  float  any  length  of  time  once these  be actually aimed, but merely fired  haphazard ��������� in the ..general direction  of Dunkirk, lis purpose was merely  frightfulness. People in French towns  soon got used.', to these big shells, \  their effect soon wears off, and they  do not cause so much damage after  alL as one would be led to suppose.  Thus the theory of Mr. Douglas rebounded on his own head.  Common sense, aiso, would have  told such experts that even _ if the  Germans had ships armed with 'the  17-incli naval guns, such monster  pieces would only be handicaps. As  guns vary according to the cube of  their calibre, it can readily be figured  out that a 17-inch gun  would  weigh  15-inch guns got the drop on it. The  London Truth says that when the  Queen Elizabeth was given her trials  at target shooting the marks-were 1%  miles away, and she perforated every  mark at the first broadside.  But with four 17-inch guns firing  against eight 15-inch guns you would!  have, giving the same rate of fire, the  Queen Elizabeth actually firing two  shots to. the other's one, and she  would put the other out of action before it- could do much if any damage  /to her, for she would have superiority  of fire right from the start, and  smother the opposing warship under a<  hail of shells.���������From the ��������� Toronto  World.

Annual  Report Shows That This Bank  is Constantly Being Placed on a  Stronger  Financial   Basis  The Merchants Cank report foi  twelve months ending April 29, 191G,  shows a very material; strengthening  of its' position. While improving its  already very considerable percentage  of /quick ass-els, the Bank naturally  had to suffer a decrease of profits.  These however have been belter than  might have been supposed atrd, 'were  sufficient to pay the regular dividends  even after' liberal contributions to  Patriotic and Red Gross Funds, and  the payment of almost Sixty Eight  thousand Dollars as War Tax on Circulation.'  'Including the balance brought forward- from last year of two hundred  and forty-five thousand dollars, the  Net Profits after full provision for all  charges,, etc., amounted " to almost  twelve hundred thousand dollars.  While the Shareholders will feel  specially gratified at this, the public  at large will rejoice especially at the  very large percentage of the, quick  assets, which amount to ���������$40,960i4S6,  being in excess of 50 per cent of the  Bank's total liabilities to the public.  Of this amount no less than sixteen  millions are in coin, Dominion notes  and other cash equivalents. .,  : As an indication of improved conditions, one notes an expansion of about  one million' and a half in Loans and  discounts���������in Canada, and a similar  amount in Call Loans/while notes  in circulation have;increased by about  twelve hundred thousand dollars. Deposits are at high- water mark standing at 72 millions, almost 10 millions  more than in 1915.      -     ,  It is of interest to note that the  ���������fifty million mark in deposits was  passed by this Bank only in 1910���������  so that in the six years an improvement'in this head of almost 50 ��������� per  cent. is.noted.  The report is another proof that  War conditions' are not 'without their  compensations as now that the first  shock is over conditions are notably  belter than previous to.Aug. 4th, 1914.  $1,000_REWARD  FOR A CASE OF  INCURABLE CONSTIPATION  To any person who cannot be cured  of Constipation by Dr. Hamilton's  Pills, the above reward will be paid.

Value of Fresh Air  One of the chief essentials to good  health is a constant supply of pure  and wholesome air. This is as necessary in the home, as in the office or  factory. . The open window, the outside sleeping balcony and living in the  open air, all tend to strengthen the  constitution and build up the nervous  system. For this reason too much attention cannot be paid to the ventilation of. buildings. A supply of pure,  fresh air pays, from a monetary standpoint. Roughly speaking, an increase  in production of ten per cent is not  unusual in the average office, shop  or warehouse, following the installation of a ventilating system. Fresh  air, therefore, properly circulated, is  an essential factor even in successful  factory management.  Relief from Asthma. Who can describe tho complete relief from suffering which follows the use of Dr. J. D.  Kellogg's Asthma Remedy? -Who can  express the feeling of joy that comes  when its soft and gentle influence relieves the tightened, choking air tubes!  Tt has made asthmatic affliction a  thing of the past for thousands. It  never fails. Good druggists everywhere  have sold it for years.

R. is in  no srrrall way responsible for a good  deal of the advancement made. Wives  and daughters of C. P. R. employees  have taken advantage of the free  course of training offered, and now  no less than 825.ladies have taken.out  the certificate of qualification from  the Association.  Under the auspices of the C. P. R.  Centre instruction was given to the  Borden Battery and Ammunition Column before leaving Montreal for the  front. Afterwards the certificates of  merit were presented to the officers  and men by Plis-Royal Highness the  Duke of Qonnaught.  An important feature of the work of  the C. P.- R. Centre was the bringing  of a large number of lady clerks of  the C. P. R. in touch with the Red  Cross Society, an organization to  which they proved a valuable asset.  Three men were saved from drowning at Winnipeg by W.-T. Davies, C.  P. R. ambulance instructor, and William Nevvcombe, C. P. R. constable.  Sir Donald Cameron presented the  medal of the Royal Canadian Humane  Society to each in recognition of their  bravery.  Particulars were cbtainable of 3,780  cases where first aid had been administered by members of the C. P. R.  Centre. The cases were thus divided:  Atlantic Centre, 9; Eastern Division,  130; Ontario Division, JoG; western  lines, 3,440.  Concluding the report the C. P. R.  Centre pays a glowing tribute to the  late Lieutenant-Colonel Lacy R. Johnson, who had been chairman of the  Centre under review and also of the  whole Association..During his time as  chairman nearly 7,000 employees of  the C. P.

In these trying complaints Df. Cassell's Tablets  are of proved value. They restore perfect efficiency  to the kidneys by nourishing the nerves which  control kidney action, and thus enable the system  to get rid of uric acid and other impurities which arc Ihe cause  of Urinary Troubles, Dropsy, and Rheumatism.  Dr. Clias. Forshaw, D.Sc, F.C.S., etc., tlie well-known  scientist, says : " I have thoroughly tested Dr. Cassell's Tablets,  and can conscientiously recommend them as an eminently safe  and effective remedy for all forms of nerve and bodily weakness. My knowledge of Dr. Cassell's Tabids leads me to the  opinion that the ingredients form a remarkably potent medicine,  quite safe for young and old in cases of nervous prostration,  debility, ainxmia, loss of flesh, malnutrition, children's weakness, spinal and nerve paralysis, and many forms of stomach  and kidney troubles."  Dr. Cassell's Tablets raise the vital standard of the entire  system, and thus promote kidney health and general health  when other means fail.  Dr. Cassell's Tablets arc Nutritive, Restorative, Alterative,  and Anti-Spasmodic, and of great Therapeutic value in all  derangements of the Nerve and Functional Systems in old or  young. They arc the recognised home remedy for Nervous  Breakdown, Nerve and Spinal Paralysis, Infantile Paralysis,  Rickets, St. Vitus' Dance, Anaemia, Sleeplessness, Kidney  Disease, Dyspepsia, Stomach Catarrh, Brain Fag, Headache,  Palpitation, Wasting Diseases, Vital Exhaustion, Loss of  Flesh, and Premature Decay. Specially valuable for  Nursing Mothers and during the Critical Periods of Life.  Druggists and Dealers throughout Canada sell Dr. G'tssell's  Tablets.

They  estimate that the  mines  of this country still  contain   10,000,000   tons,   and   that   foreign  mines have about as much more.    Even at the  present  rate  of consumption,   therefore, the  supply  now  in  sight would  last only about  twenty years, and the rate of consumption, in- p  stead of being stationary, is constantly rising.'  Twenty-live years  ago  the   world   produced j  20.5,400   tons, last  year 1,000,000 tons.    The  price here in America has  alrcad  risen  from  thirtee-n-to twenty-seven cents a pounds. Evidently the world must either find new deposits  or discover a substitute metal.���������Youth's Companion.  The ocean   of life is  filled  with breakers.

FRIDAY,..AUGUST  18, 1916  The matter of the increased circulation in the  interior of the coast dailies since the opening  of the campaign can not be made an issue in  this election. Both the Liberal and Conservative dailies of Vancouver have greatly aug-  men ed the number of copies sent'to this and  adjoining districts. For either side to bring up  this question is tantamount to throwing  stones from glass houses. '���������'.*  A cynic is a  man   who says smart things  that he doesn't really believe.     .     .

Chivalry meant wearing a tin shirt and  trousers and undressing with a milk-tin  opener.  There will probably be a great number of  disappointed office seekers after the; election,  no matter which party wins. The returned  soldiers are[:entitled to all the government positions they are capable of filling, and when  appointments are made they should be given  the first preference.  There are adherents of both political parties  in the civil service, and if they wish to retain  their positions after the election they should  refrain from taking an active part in the campaign.  THt FUTURE OF COPPER  Next to iron, the most valuable industrial  metal is copper, of which the world now uses  about a million tons a year, more than half of  which comes from the mines in the United  States. Since the beginning of the war the  wastage of all common metals has been tremendous. The belligerents have been hurling iron, steel, lead and copper at each other  in quantities so vast that future archaeologists  may map the course of the struggle from the  scrap heaps.  (Jeimany especially is in urgent need of  copper. Long ago the government melted  down its copper and its nickel coins and substituted iron currency. In spite of this, the  price of copper and of bronze soon ro.se from  about fifteen cents a pound to eighty cents. In  Germany the scarcity of copper is owing not  ���������only to its use in many kinds of munitions but  also to the fact that the output of the mines  of the country���������about 55,">00,000 pounds a  year���������is always much less than the needs of  the nation require,  At present two-thirds of the world's production of copper is absorbed by the electrical  industry. Telephone and telegraph systems  have taken 000,000 tons, submarine cables  about 10,000 tons, and electric raihuay, lighting and power stations in this country alone  have used about 50,000 tons. Copper enters  extensively into the manufacture of machinery,  automobiles, builders' hardware and nickel-  plated goods; for brass or bronze, of which it  is the chief constituent, has a thousand uses  and forms a part of articles as diverse as shoe  eyelets and the roof of houses.

Too Much for Jim Hill  The late James J. Hill, like'other  men of unusual personality, was the  source of unending anecdote.  According to a writer in the New  York Sun, who describes the interesting characteristics of the man,  one of his aversions was ,a locked  desk. He thought that men who  worked for him had no right to  bring their secrets to his odice. One  'morning he had occasion to look for  a report in the desk of an official of  his company, and found the desk  locked. When the official arrived  he found the top of his desk  wrenched off. A sign upon the  wreckage called the attention of the  office force to the rule about locked  desks, and that desk remained on  exhibition as a mute  object   lesson.'  He watched the Great Northern  railway with microscopic care. Woe  to'the section hand who allowed  anything to lie round his right of  way, or about the station. Once, in  making an inspection, Mr. Hill  found a perfectly good, railway  spike lying by the side of the track.  He sought out the section boss wiih  fire in his eyes and showed him the  spike. The section boss had a quick  wit, however, and before the rebuke broke upon him he exclaimed:  "My goodness, Mr. Hill, I'm glad  you found that spike! I've been  looking for it for nearly three  weeks!"  It is said that he "got by" without the expected "blowing up," and  that even the "old man" had to  smile.  The morning after the coming-  oul party, Mandy, the cook, thus  greeted the young lady for whom it  was given:  ���������'Miss Annie, yo' sbo' did look  las' night! My, I hardly knowed  yo'!

Pr  ood Skippej's, These  Masters  of   i rawlers  Despise Seamanship  of   h'avy  Every trawler is distinctive, and the  whole character of the crew and of  the life on board depends on ihe captain. These skippers are types who  seem to have survived from an age  long since gone by. You can always  tell a North Sea trawler from a West  country one. The Worth Sea skippers  seem stern and taciturn, whereas the  West countrymen, mostly Devonshire  men, seem genial, loquacious. , All  are, however, delightfully independent  and express their views on things in  general in a manner which makes  naval officers tremble for tho discipline of the service. They love to  criticize everything. The skipper of  a trawler never will admit that any  officer in the; navy is a real seaman.  They will stoutly maintain that seamanship is a lost art, which can now  only be found among themselves, and  they love to bold forth on the handling  of great battleships as they make their  way into narrqw harbors or take up  difficult anchorages, pointing out how  much better they could have done the  job themselves. They love to grumble"  at everything, and without a grievance  thoy would be miserable.���������Liverpool  Courier.

Queen Mother Saw Game  One of the best stories illustrating  the practical sympathy of Queen Alexandra is told by Lady Randolph  Churchill. Not long ago the Queen  Mother stopped her motor car in Hyde  Park in order to watch a game of  football which some soldiers were en-  enjoying near the Serpentine. No one  recognized her. The same evening  Her Majesty sent a subscription to  the fund for giving footballs to soldiers in training.  : Improving Butter Price*.  The season of 1916 will likely sec  the largest, output of butter Western  Canada has ever yet marketed. C. P.  Marker, dairy commissioner for Alberta, estimates that the make in that  province will run 9,000,000 pounds:  this year as against 7,400,000 pounds  last year, which was a-very favorable  season. Saskatchewan is preparing for  a big make, as is Manitoba. In all  three distinct steps have been made  to further improve the quality of the  creamery product and thereby extend  and consolidate the market. It is  said 90 per cent, of the cream reaching Alberta creameries this year will  be pasteurized, which treatment adds  greatly to the keeping quality of the  butter and seems essential for long  shipments.

A good apropos  of the fact comes from Pctrograd.  "In the fighting .in the region west  of Aschkala the Turks surrounded a  Russian deta6hment formed of reserve  soldiers. These reservists were taken  into captivity by the Turks, but, preferring a glorious death to; shameful  surrender, with their non-commission--  ed officers at their head, fell upon  the Turkish escort, overcome it, and  forced it to join their brave regiment!"

ALL RESOURCES OF EMPIRE THROWN INTO FIGHT  Suffer Most Just  Famous American War Correspondent Writes of Fighting Quality  Of British Troops, and Pays  a.Tribute to Organization  And Work of War Department  [By Frederick Palmer in Collier's)  01 course there are some people  ,-who think that anybody who says a  good word for the English must be  what is known as an Anglo-maniac  who uses broad a's, speaks of "dear  eld Lurinim" as they ..do on the vaudeville stage, and holds his breath in  awe at the mention of a duke. I  come of blood which has fought the  British twice and would again for the  right cause. My ideas of how the  British fight; and the part, they have  played in this war were formed not  in the company of dukes or in dear  old Lunnun from the gossip of. the  Strand; but at the British front. I  think that the British are entitled to  fair play and to be judged by what  thoy have done rather ."than by /the  way they talk.  Then in two'months the British  had lost more killed and wounded  than ' their-��������� original force;'��������� in six  months, more than the total of their  ^landing army. They had lacked  machine guns and guns of heavy calibre; so had the French. The English had not only to train men who  had never shouldered a rifle, but to  equip them. Russia and- France, too,  lacked sufficient uniforms at the outset of the war for all the soldiers  they had. From the Belgian and Serbian and the Russian army came the  call to manufacturing England for'  tinns and uniforms. England was the  mint, the foundry, the workshop which  must be a bottomless source of supply  ���������while every demand of Jellicoe's had  to bo met She plodded on sturdily,  if not brilliantly, criticizing no one  but herself.  Though the British had supposed  that their part was to command the  tjea, three million volunteered to  cross the Channel or go farther overseas and fight. This is a different  thing from volunteering to fight in  your own country against an invader.  .Mind, these, three million did not (  have to be ordered to fight. They went  of their own free will, carpenters,  farmers; cost,ennongers,' doctors, lawyers, 'millionaires and laborers, with  every able bodied man of Oxford and  Cambridge and other universities and  great public schools offering himself.  History has afforded nothing finer  than this outpouring, and never was  there sin effort more depreciated by  those who made it.  For the lack of guns the British in  France had to fight with flesh and  blood against superior artillery���������  flesh and blood against machine killing. France needed help; England  gave all she had to give���������the lives of  her men.  One reason they had to hold a short  lirre was for many months they had  to do it with flesh and blood, without adequate gurrs or adequate shells  for the guns, though they have the  shells now and are getting tire guns.  Another reason was that they held the  famous Ypres salient, one of the bloodiest, parts of the line.  If you don't think so. ask any German who has fought there. Again,  after this war,  don't make the mis  take of depreciating the British soldier to a German soldier. The highest praise you can hear for the British armj is from Germans.  The English talk of "muddling,"  but ii seems to me that they do.very  much less muddling than they advertise, . The error so'highly criticized  at Lobs was made by the German staff  only, a few days later. In fact, the  Germans have been guilty oc it -several times, but they say nothing and  go on. Berlin is silent while tongues  wag in London. ���������  How She Was Relieved from  Pain by Lydia E.Pinkham's  Vegetable Compound.

This year is no exception to the  rule. -Mr. W. F. Stevens, Provincial  Live Stock Commissioner for Alberta,  has visited a number of farms from  which reports of this kind have come.  Although he does not claim to have  discovered the precise cause in every  instance, he does not hesitate to  classify the causes, in the majority  of cases, under the following headings: .-'���������..  Farrowed in February.���������The ^losses  among pigs farrowed in February are,  as a rule, heavy. In seasons when  the Weather is as cold as it was during last February the losses are particularly heavy. This fact alone would  account for many demhs.  Little Light and Less Ventilation  in Pens.���������Animals confined .within  poorly lighted and ill ventilated housings cannot thrive, and young animals cannot develop strength nor  resist disease in such places. Pneu-  nfonia doubtless caused most of the  deaths among the early farrowed animals that were thus cared for.  Feeding the 'dam-too heavily after  was relatively cheaper than oats last  winter, and many farmers yielded to  the temptation to feed it to their  brood sows. Barley develops fat but  not1 boneand muscle. Bone and  muscle, but not fat, are. what the  young animal requires in order to  enable it. to avoid danger and keep  from being laid on and suffocated-in  the nest.  Feeding the dam to heavily after  farrowing.���������Tho swine grower who  likes to feed liberally is usually a  heavy loser from "thumps." Feeding  the sow heavily on heating foods, particularly barley, wheat, rye, or spelts,  and keeping her confined in a pen is  likely to result in "thumps" among  the young pigs. Turn the sow out.  feed a thin slop of ground oats, and  provide succulent feed ur roots or  green forage .of some kind.  Sows had frozen teats.���������Some swine  growers went to the opposite extreme.  They fed their sows out of doors during the coldest of weather. In many  cases they had to wade through snow  drifts when going from the nesting  place to the feeding ground. The  result was that some of "them froze  their teats and were therefore unable  to suckle their young, which died of  starvation.  Swine growers who have suffered  losses of young pigs should write to  the Department, of Agriculture, Edmonton, and ask for a copy of live  stock pamphlet entitled "Preparing  for the Pig Crop." also pamnhlet entitled "The Suckling Period."

Mixture  of Fear,  Doubt  and   Expectancy Proves Unnerving to Many  Tlie following interesting article,  giving physchological study of a battle, was written by a German school  teacher, who since has been killed  on the west front. The article, which  appears in the German papers, has  caused considerable, comment:  "To describe the sensations, the  emotions and the innermost feelings  of the soul of a soldier in battle is nil  unusually interesting but difficult  task. While the battle is raging a  soldier is beset and agitated by. thousands of thoughts that flash like-lightning through his brain, but it is only  during the remarkable calm that  comes after a*baltlc that he is enabled  to analyze them. As I have participated in thirty-six engagements and  battles, both on the eastern and western fronts, I have been in a position  to make many observations and have  made a study of the soul of the soldier. It is a great subject for the  physchologist and1 oue-that opens a  mine���������.of valuable information.  "The troops receive orders at night  to prepare for a charge the next morning. The first thought is," is this real?  Somehow, it seems like a dream. It  is (lie same thought that stirs the soul  in any great event in rife, be it one:  of joy or cne of .'sorrow. It does not  seem real.  "However, when the soldier does  realize that it is no nightmare, he begins to think of the likelihood of death  claiminghim in that battle. A strange,  indescribable.-fear- begins, to agitate  the soul. The awful thought pesters  him that he will go to his death and  leave home and loved ones and everything that is dear in a moment of  time. He ponders over the subject of  immortality and wonders if death  comes whether it will mean eternal  darkness and annihilation.  "Toone who is in the prime of life,  who has everything to live for," hell  itself cannot offer torture to equal the  terrorizing doubts that assail the soul  in those, dreadful moments before a  battle.  "Then, too, the thoughts come that  we have not made the most of life;  that there is-so much which we would  still like to do; that if only given the  opportunity how different we would  shape our life in the future.  "All-night long the troops move to  the front, and all night long we think  of God and the uncertainty that lies  .directly before us.  "Morning comes. It is a most beautiful morning; Jhe sun_ shihing .warm  and bright. The notes of a German  song are wafted on the still air.: It  is a song of the Fatherland and all  join in the chorus. It is then that,  we forget all our doubts and fears.  A new life seems to be born within  us. All fear has vanished and we are  ready to go down to the gates of death  unafraid.  "And then the battle. The bullets  began to whistle. In those first moments every soldier naturally looks  for some sheltered place for protection. Nevertheless, the soul is remarkably calm. Though comrades are falling on all sides we never for a moment think of being hit by a bullet  ourselves. \Ye keep on running, running toward the enemy. All feeling,  all thought, all emotion,, all sensation  is obliterated. In the crash and thunder of artillery we go on, fearing nothing. Occasionally we hear a voice uttering a curse or a threat, due to hate  against the enemy, born anew in the  thick of battle. That feeling of hate  becomes uppermost. Wc are seized  with a frenzy of rage, and our one  thought"is to meet the enemy face to  face and annihilate him. As this  hate is mingled with a certain feeling  of patriotism and love for the Fatherland, the lust of battle is developed  in such a manner as to quiet oirr  nerves and forget all about danger and  death.  "The battle has been fought and  won. The soul experiences an indescribable peace, but when we begin to  sec our broken ranks and make count  of our fallen comrades painful sensations follow. Then only do we realize  what danger we so callously faced,  and a wave of thoughtfulness warms  our blood and body.  "The feelings ami sensations on  emerging from a battle are like fho*e  of convalescence from a serious illness. Tire tired soul longs for peace  and rest, and the soldier falls into a  deep, souiv.l, dreamless steep, in which  all the fear and sires? and storm of the  time are forgotten."  Tribute to Late  Earl Kitchener  Is Praised for Mis Great Work as an  Empire  Builder  At a New York theatre the other  day the film "Britain Prepared" was  being shown. The face of the late  Earl Kitchener was flashed on the  screen. The orchestra began the  strains of "Nearer, My. God, to Thee."  The audience rose, in utter silence,  and stood while the verse was played.  A tribute, such as thai, completely  spontaneous, by people of another  nation is remarkable. It is evidence  that his personality left a mark upon  the world.  It is noticeable, in all the American  tributes paid to Kitchener, by Theodore Poosevelt, Gen. Leonard Wood  former Ambassador Choate, and many  others, that-it was Kitchener's work  in ���������Empire-building that chiefly commanded their admiration. Kitchener's  share of the "white man's burden" in  ���������Kgypt, Africa and India is the outstanding note in their tributes.'  Another notable tribute was paid  Kitchener in the parliament of United  South Africa, where the members  stood in silence while Premier Botha,  in a few words expressing great admiration and respect for the -man who a  few years ago was the leader of the  British armies in the -conquest-, 6)  South Africa, moved the adjournment  of the House. It will be remembered  that immediately after peace was  signed at Pretoria, Kitchener sent r  message to the Boers expressing his  admiration for their gallantry and  bravery, in the long war.  The Chicago Daily News, in an appreciative article, on the day of his  death, recalled an interview Kitchener gave while in Chicago some years  ago. In this Kitchener expressed the  view that the want of food and the  necessity of importing it was the  chief factor in making war. The nation which had not sufficient supplies  of food of its own, he pointed, out.  was continually gazirrg with envious  eyes upon the nations which had. As  a lover of peace, he said, he had  noticed with great pleasure the vast  fields of grain in the middle west, and  look equal pleasure from the fact that  across the boundary, in Canada, there  were possibilities ' of equally greal  production of foodstuffs.  Roosevelt's tribute is worth quoting:  "Six years ago I passed through  the Soudan and was more deeply impressed than I can well express by  the extraordinary benefits secured to  the natives of the country by Lord  Kitchener's conquests; and the "'administration of himself and of his lieuten  ant and successor. Gen. Wingate.  "He rescued it from a condition o;  chronic slaughter and rapine, under  which the population diminished by  considerably more than half, and of  the younger children over ���������nine-tenths  died of disease or starvation. The  result of the conquest was to establish  absolute peace and justice under tho  orderly reign  of law.  "Industry flourished amazingly,  slavery and,the oppression of weaker  tribes were completely abolished;  schools were established everywhere  and the Soudan entered upon a career  of peace, prosperity and justice, which  it has never before known in its  history."���������Tiegina Province.

The  device is operated in much the same  manner as an automatic sprinkler.  When the temperature in the stables  rises to a certain point a weight is  released which falls on a lever that  in turn releases all the doors simultaneously. At the same instant certain noises are made mechanically  which frighten the horses from their  places. The releasing lever is occasionally operated by hand to give the  horses a fire drill. Each horse soon  learns to trot from its stall when the  door opens and the alarm sounds.'  Comforting  1   "I   like   church."     "Why?"
