Save the Trees  That the shade tree increases   the  value of property,   and   adds much  to the   beauty   of   surroundings   is  being more and   more  appreciated.  Municipal corporations are   encouraging   the   planting    of    trees   in  greater numbers,  as   well   as   protecting   those   they   already   have.  Many estimates have been made  as  to the aotual cash value of   a grow  ing shade tree, but all concede   that  .its   aesthetic   greatly   exceeds    its  monetary value.    In  the transfer of  real   estate,    a   favorably   silfiated  shade tree will enhance the value of  the property out of all proportion to  the intrinsic value of the tree. From  a   financial   standpoint,    therefore,  the shade trees should be protected.

It is reported from   Cascade   that  a large-mineral mineral vein was re  cently discovered by Ralph Wolver  ton   in   the. canyon   of the   Kettle  river a few hundred feet  above   the  electric power plant. The canyon at  this  place   is -10U feet deep.    The  vein .is exposed   the   whole   depth  and  shows   to   be   about   100 feet  wide? A tunnel twelve feet long has  been run and a considerable amount  of ore containing copper,   gold   and  silver   has   been   extracted,   assays  running from   $10  to   S30.    Other  claims   have   been   located   in th^  same district.  Life in political circles in the city  during the week has been com para  tively quiet. Not a single meeting  has bpen held.

The electric current was switched on  to some of the tanks containing the  copper anodes, and the pure metal,  the gold and silver values being left  in the slimes, was the result.

In  these tanks is a solution of sulphuric  acid and copper   sulphate,    both of  which ore Consolidated   company's  by products.  The building itself���������constructed  of steel and other fire proof materials, like all the recent structures ofthe company, is about 50x100 feet  in size. In a separate buildintr the  sheets of pure copper will be-melted  into merchantable form and shipped  to market, and the gold and silver  values will be taken from the  slimes.  School Inspector A.

Four years ago  the British Columbia government sent  a royal commission to Australia and  New Zealand lb investigate the- rural  credit systems in, operation in those  dominions. The report brought in by  the commission was very "favorable  and the government secured the en-,  actment of legislation . to make it'  effective. Under the new Agricultural  Credits Act the government has borrowed $1,000,000 at 5.G3 per cent, and  public realize it so well, that they bear | will re-loan this money to the farmers  ho strain without a whisper of com  plaint.

Prince's opinion, the Zeppelins have done the German cause more  harm than good" and he sums up their  efforts in a few brief but pointed sen-  lences: "'The Zeppelins, as an engine  of war, have acted as a boomerang  for these reasons: They have aroused  England to a high pitch of patriotism  in quicker time than would otherwise  have been possible; they have meant  :m .enormous cost, they have, obtained  no 'military results; and they have  aroused the disgust of the neutral na-^  lions.

The British fighters from India demand a menu entirely different from  that of the Tommies, and the Turcos  of the French army are also peculiar  in. their tastes. The food most favored by the colored Algerian soldiery  is "cous-cous," or boiled semolina,  made of the large hard grains retained in the bolting .machine after the  fine flour has passed through it. The  semolina is served .either plain, or  with the addition of vegetables, some-  la ry offensive.

The allies, on the  other hand, are so bent upon a vastly  larger operation, which they hope will  be decisive, that they prefer to risk  local and momentary losses rather  than postpone the day when they will  be.fully ready to deliver in common  their knockout blow. It would, therefore, be unfair to General Joffrc and  the General's officers and men directly  concerned to regard the. struggle north  of Verdun as a fair,trial .of'.strength'.  Vast as arc its proportions and the  sacrifices involved, it. is over-shadowed  by a coming event incomparably  greater. Enemy strategy, whether on  the Meuse or the Adige, is to destroy  this menace.

Whether the war lasts or ceases  there must continue an undiminished  demand for horses. When pence comes  tin;re will be a long period of replenishment.

An Ice Mine  Probably the strangest mine in the  world is to be found in Pennsylvania.  It is an ice mine, which freezes in  summer and thaws in winter. It is  ���������10 feet deep and from 10 to 12 feet in  diameter, up which pours a peculiar  cold mist coming from openings found  all the way from ihe lop to the bottom. As soon as warm weather arrives frost appears on the walls of the  shaft and soon liny icicles form rapidly, until in .the warmest weather  huge icicles, often two feet thick,  reach from Ihe top to the bottom of  the mine. Geologists can offer no explanation. The owner built a shed  I over the mine, but had to tear it down  because as soon as the sun's rays were  cut off the ice melted.

"THE   CUTTER   LABOi'ATORY,   Berksloy,   Call'nrnfa,  Germany's Idea of the Meaning oF the  Freedom of the Seas  The "freedom of the seas" that Ger-  many wants is freedom to paralyse  the sea-power of the maritime States,  and first of all the sea-power of England. That, as she well knows, was  the invincible obstacle to universal  over-lordshin against which Napoleon,  whe "was her oppressor, and is her  model," dashed himself in vain. Were  it removed from her - path by the  "reforms" she advocates in international law, she would be free to pursue her ideal well-nigh unchecked.  We know what that ideal is. We  have learnt it from her speakers and  writers, but most from her actions.  It is a German, domination in all  branches of human activity, founded  upon the brute force of a vast army  which is moved by an autocratic  government. Does any man fancy  that, if Germany had-the power upon  the. water "that she has in Belgium  or in l?oland, she would not iise it-  with the same unscrupulous ruthless-'  ness? Would there he fewer Lusitan-  las and fewer Sussexes when ������������������she was  strong than when, shcis weak?      ���������������������������.-..  She would bind herself, no' doubt,  by solemn treaties, but she would  keep them as she kept the solemn  treaties that pledged her lb defend  Belgian neutrality and the laws that  forbid, her to sink merchantmen at*  sight. That consideration alone must  constrain maritime 'nations, like  England; and America, to retain their  fleets. Did they foolishly reduce their  navies Germany -mightat any moment  tear up the new treaties consecrating  the."freedom; of.the seas" and destroy  their trade on that nlea of military  necessity which justifies all lawlessness and all wickedness in her eyes.���������  London Times  MADE  CANADA  'Most infants are infested by worms,  which cause great suffering, and if���������  not promptly dealt with may cause  constitutional weaknesses difficult to  remedy.'

Canada's Supply of 'Nickel  Rich   Deposits   in   Cobalt   District   of  Great  Value, to the   Empire  in Time of War  When the supply of nickel has become one of the foremost needs of the  Empire it is well to recapitulate the  resources that Canada holds of the  coveted metal.  .'The total production of matte at  Sudbury, Ont., in 1915 was G7,70o tons,  containing 39,216,165 pounds of copper  and G8,077,82.3. pounds of nickel, and  valued by. the producers at ������2,070,000.  The tonnage of ore smelted (part being previously roasted) was 1,272,283.  The production in 1914 was 46,396 tons  of matte, containing 23,896,825 pounds  of copper, and 45,517,937 pounds of  nickel, and valued at ������1,433,000.  The reported recovery of nickel  from the ores of the Cobalt district  was 55,325 pounds of metals, .and  200,032 pounds of nickel oxide. The  recovery in .1914 was S92;5'2 pounds  of nickel oxide. About GO per cent,  of the Canadian nickel production is  exported to the United States, and a  far larger quantity of nickel finds its  way to the United Kingdom through  United States refineries than is exported directly from Canada.  ' The Canadian Government have  an agreement from the U. S. smelters  under which there is a practical certainty that none of our nickel goes to  the enemy.  In a Zeppelin  What a   French  Officer Saw  in  Burning Wreckage  Among the interesting statements  gathered at Revigny by the correspondent of the "Petit Parisien" regarding  the end of the Zeppelin brought down  in flames by the French is that of an  inhabitant of the region whose evidence suggests that there was a woman on board the airship.  "1 was scarcely more than twenty  yards away among the people crowded  round the burning mass of the monster sky-raider," he said, "when I saw  a'French officer, whom I knew, scrutinizing through his fieldglass. a.particular heap of burning wreckage, the  flames of which lit up the night.  "He handed me the glasses, exclaiming, 'Look, there is no mistake,  about it, .a woman was with them.'  True enough, I could plainly see  through the glasses two slender feet  shot with higli-topped, high-heeled  fashionable boots.

Tho many failures  of the German Crown Prince had to  be redeemed, and the idea that a  striking victory here would confirm  and extend Germany's hold upon the  mineral; basin of Lorraine, which is  essential to her iron and steel manufacturers, was probably not foreign  to the decision.

"Lightning struck the barn, killing  two calves, then ran along to the top  of tho haymow. My husband grabbed  the pail and ran up the ladder in  time to put out the fire, but if he had  had to wait to draw that water it  would have been too late." So if full  protection' is not possible, don't neglect to keep a few pails of water  handy.

It was during that statesman's rule in the affairs of the nation that Lord Salisbury ceded the  island in exchange for Zanzibar.  Speaking the other clay in the Reichstag, Herr Waldstcin, a Radical Deputy, said:���������"We have all been asking ourselves with- a certain feeling  of horror what would have happened  if Heligoland had still been today a  British fortress. With the deepest  feeling of gratitude wo must remember  today tlie man who by the Treaty of  Zanzibar made the island the mightiest   bulwark  of our German  coasts."

If you consult a doctor he  says you are anaemic, which really  means bloodless. That is what makes  people drag along, always tired, never  real hungry, often unable to digest  their food, breathless after the slightest exertion, and too often on the  verge  of  complete  breakdown.  iMore weak, ���������anaemic people -have  been made strong, energetic and cheerful by taking Dr. Williams Pink Pills  than by any other -moans. These  pills actually make new, rich blood  which'reaches every part of the body,  strengthens the nerves and brings new  health, and strength. The following is  proof of Dr. Williams Pink Pills to  restore health. Mr. Geo. Turner, New  Haven, N. S., 'says:-���������"No doubt due to  constant hard work I got in a badly  run down condition. It took very little  exertion to tire, me, and my appetite  was far from being.good. Often I had  headaches, and when going up stairs,  or after any slight exertion* my heart  would palpitate violently, and I grew.,  considerably alarmed about, my condition. I decided to take Dr. Williams  Pink Pills and after using a few boxes  I felt much better.: I continued using  the pills for some weeks longer, and  they completely cured me. I can  warmly recommend this medicine to  men who are w.ealYor-run down."  You can get these pills-through'any  medicine dealer or by mail, post paid,  at 50 cents a box or six boxes for  Sl'.uO from The Dr. Williams Medicine  Co., Brockville, Ont.  Forestry Farms  Changing the  Treeless   Prairie   Into  a  Park-Like   Country  "Saskatchewan requires more Forestry Farms. Then there would be at  least two lectures continuously on the  road to hold meetings, giving lectures  on forestry, shelter-belts, etc. The  gospel of tree-planting should be  brought to farmers. These lectures  could take the names and locations  of farmers who are anxious and ready  to plant trees, send in the lists to the  head office in the province/ and inspectors should be sent out to examine each farm, so as to advise  farmers where to plant, and how to  prepare tlie ground for the following  year's planting. It is all right to expend money on flic general Conservation Commission to enthuse citizens  the Dominion over on what our natural resources are aud how they  should-be conserved, but the practical  working end of the problem should  not be neglected. Give Saskatchewan  forestry farms and practical men to  meet progressive farmers, and in' a  few years the treeless, wind-swept  prairies would be changed to a parklike country, with trees on every  farm."���������Saskatchewan Farmer.

I consulted a doctor  without getting any results. Four  boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills fixed me  up." . !  That rheumatism'is caused by sick  kidneys failing to strain the uric acid  out of the blood was again shown in  Mr. Bonnot's case. His earlier symptoms were: heart fluttcrings, broken  and unrefreshing sleep, fitful appetite,, a tired nervous feeling, a heaviness after meals, neuralgia and backache.

Stamps as Spy Messages  Arranged to  Convey   Information  of a  Naval  or  Military  Nature  The Italian Government has forbidden the exportation and the German  Government the importation of used  and unused postage stamps, according  to information received from Switzerland by Hugh Clark, a New York  philatelist.  American dealers' .mpplies of stamps  from Italy are thus suspended; and  those from Germany are delayed because they must come by way of floii-  mania and the Orient," whereas formerly they reached here bv way of  Italy.  The British Government does not  permit German stamps to be sent out  by way of Holland or the Scandinavian countries, according to local  philatelists, and the French Government is equally strict.  The letter received by Mr. ' Clark  carried the intimation that two secret  codes built upon (he use of postage  stamps sent through letters had been  discovered by the Italian and German  authorities, and that these were responsible for the respective decisions  of the two governments. Through these  codes certain numbers and types of  stamps, imported or exported, . were  said to be conveying information of  a naval or military nature.  .[:; ID SORE J01US CURED!

Baker's Bread in Great Britain  "The ordinary whitened bread has  on occasions/when' analysed been  found to contain wood-dust, bone-  dust, alum, sulphuric powder and  salts or magnesia, -which enables'the  flour to take up far more than the  normal amount of water. As this emasculated flour known in the trade as  'seconds' is naturally of a grey and  unattractive color, it is put through  a process of bleaching in order to  endeavor to give-to it tho look of pure  fine, wlieaten flour. There are two  principal ways of achieving this���������  both processes highly injurious, especially to the digestive organs and  teeth of children. One is the mixing  of alum with the flour, the other  bleaching it by means of chemical  fumes.

No subject is more tabooed  in its details by the. censor. Commanders do. not want to let the enemy know why their raids succeed or  fail or why the enemy's succeed or  fail. Invention fights invention;  ���������secrecy fights; secrecy.   ':.'.,  All the elements of boxing wrest-'  ling, fencing and mob tactics, plus,the  stealth of the Indian who crept up on.  a camp on-the. plains and the teamwork of a, professional baseball nine,  are valuable to the ^nnjet.  The weapon that is least needed is  r rifle. A club of a sandbag or-an  Indian battle axe or spiked club is  better. A good slugger without any  weapon at all-may take an adversary's loaded rifle away from him and  knock him down and then kick him  to death.        ;  The monotony of trench existence  these days, is broken by preparing for  raids and against them. Battalion  commanders work out schemes of  ���������strategy which would have won them  fame in smaller wars. Fifty men or a  thousand may be engaged in a raid.  It may be on a front of fifty, yards or  a thousand. Its object is to take as  -many prisoners and kill and wound  as many of the enemy as possible in a  few minutes;'and th'en to get back to  ,their own trench., The assaulters try  to hold on to the piece of trench they  have taken, the _guns are turned on  them, the bombers close up on either  side, and machine guns and rifles  ���������ire prepared to sweep the zone of  ictirement.  ��������� An uncanny curiosity gives tlie soldiers incentive for the raids. Ordinarily they never see their enemy hidden in his burrows across "No Man's  Land" from their own burrows. - Unseen bullets from unseen snipers  crack .overhead. Unseen guns suddenly concentrate in a deluge of  shells. For months this sort of  thing goes on and the trenches of the  adversaries -remain always in > the  same place; the grim monotony of  casualties and watching continues.  This arouses the desire to "get at"  the enemy which the trench raid satisfies. It means springing over the  parapet and rushing across "No Man's  Land" into the very houses of the  enemy and man to .man on his door  step proving 'which is a heller fighter.  To go over the parapet ordinarily  means death. In order to make any  such rush there must be "interference," as they say in football, and  the barb wire.in.front of the enemy's  trench must be cut. G'his is usually  done by the guns, which become more  imd more deadly in their ability to  turn accurate sprays of destruction  on given, points. They cover the  rush and they cover the return of the  raiders with their prisoners.  But the guns are not all; there are  nil kinds of organized trickery in order to enable a body of soldiers to get  into the enemy's trendies for a. few  minutes of activity, when the occupants' throw themselves on their invaders at such close quarters that it  is a question if even a revolver is now  a practical weapon. It cannot be  thrown over a traverse and a bomb  can. Running into a German around  the corner of a traverse a blow may  be better than a shot.  There have been trench raids where  every man who went out was responsible, for a casually or prisoner, while  the raiders' own loss might not, have  been one in ten to the enemy's.

Asquith Points  Way to Victory  Increasingly   Close   Co-operation   and  Vast  Resources of Allies  Bound  to Triumph  In observance of the thirtieth anniversary of his��������� election to tlie House  of Commons from East Fife, Premier  Asquith visited his constituency for  the first time since the outbreak of  the war, addressing a great meeting  of his supporters and many who in  past years, had been his opponents.  The Premier made a touching reference to the-.denth of Field Marshal  Earl Kitchener as "leaving a place in  our constitutional life that none else  can fill, and a memory that will live  as long as the British Empire." Lord  Kitchener had bequeathed to the country an array of armies, said the  Premier, and it was for the country  ���������to make.the best use of these./ ;  In a survey of the situation, Premier Asquith declared- that the Russian advance was one of the most  brilliant feats of the war.  'The Italians; Mr. Asquith said, ,were  making resistance to ihe Austrian onslaught which every day was becoming more effective. As for the French,  nothing could exceed the valor -with  ���������which they were maintaining the defence .of Verdun. Co-operation among  the General Staffs of the allies was  becoming more intimate and complete  every month. British assistance had  been offered to Gen. Joffre. and the  steps which would he taken jvere  those dictated by sound strategy..  "This war is not merely a!struggle  of armies," the Premier continued.  "It is a stiugglc of material and economic rest"frees, arid these will prove  in the Ion'.' run to be the deciding  factors."  After sneaking ot the effectiveness  of the navy's blockade Mr. Asquith  said: - '���������'-,.  "Owing to the rashness of the enemy we were allowed ---to see another  and more, stirring, dramatic aspect of  the navy's qualities. The naval action of May ;U was worthy of the best  and most treasured traditions of the  British navy. The Germans were  driven back into their ports without  so much as making an effort to grapple with the main body of our Grand  Fleet, and had the temerity to claim  what really'was a rout as a complete  victory. A couple more such victories  and there will bo nothing left of the  German navy worth sneaking about.  The truth is slowly leaking out, and t  its full extent is not yet'realized orj  appreciated. Our command of the  seas, so far from being impaired, has  been more firmly and unshakably established."     ��������� . -  In reference to Ireland, Mr. Asquith  said the recent rioting, leading to the  loss^f many innocent lives, had created a situation which seemed to a majority of responsible Irishmen of all  parties to call for a settlement. The  history of the relations between Great  Britain and Ireland exhibited a tragic  series of missed or misused opportunities.  "Don't let us add another to their  number," said the Premier.  ���������"What he desired, he explained, was  a provisional settlement, for when the  war came to an end the country would  have to take stock of its internal relations, the fabric of the Empire would  have to he refashioned, and relations  between Great Britain and Ireland  and the Dominions would of necessity  be brought-into close and connected  review.  ars Have  Set Example  Unlike Germans, Respected Red Cross  on  Lady  Paget's  Hospital  There was a large party at King's  Cross to welcome L.aciy Paget and litiy-  ���������four\other members of the Serbian  Relief Fund Hospital staff at Uakub  on their return Io London. A well  known .member of Lady Paget's party  said: "Wo have travelled back to England via Itoumania, Russia, Sweden  and Norway. On October 22 the -Bulgarians entered Uskub. Their advance  was so rapid that I here, was no possibility of getting the patients safely out of the hospital. Lady Paget  pluckily decided to stay behind to  look' after them. The line of battle  went right through the hospital buildings, but the. Bulgarians respected the  Red Cross flag.  "There wore 800 patients, about/half  of them being Serbs, and the other  half Bulgars. The Bulgarians, I believe,   did   what  they  could  to   help.  They told lis they were anxious to  stand well in English eyes. The refugee population, kept alive from Ihe  relief -fund stores, . numbered many  thousands. Lady Paget organized  daily relief for about 4,000 people.  "King Ferdinand, and both the  young princes came to Uskub before  we were permitted to leave. None, of  them, however, came to the hospital.'  After leaving Uskub we were detained  in Sofia for a month. Lady Paget was  the. guest of the Queen of Belgium.

The merchant shook his head, and  when informed of the truth-he'burst  into'loud lamentations..He had shamelessly- overcharged the Prince, and  nothing could convince him that he  could not suffer an ignominious death.

The London Daily Mail's Bern*  correspondent, writing on internal  conditions in Germany says:  "The morale of the civilian populn*  tion is'considerably shaken by privations and the morale of the army to  some extent is affected by the news  from home, as well, no doubt, as by  the heavy losses at the front. An officer of a Prussian Guard regiment  recently said:  "'We can win more victories at a  price, but each victory brings us nearer to defeat.'  "But the nation is kept together  still by "a carefully inspired fear of  intended reprisals "by the Allies���������  murder, pillage and arson���������and by  the idea that the Allies intend lifter  victory to tear the empire to pieces.  "The German army and civilians  are by no means in a mood to throw  themselves on the mercy of the Allies,  nor are they reduced to the condition  of a garrison whose lighting men see  their rations daily reduced.  "To break the fighting spirit of a  nation at bay, something more than  economic pressure must be applied.  The Germans must see with their eyes  that' they cannot hold the lines (in  the enemy's country, remember) which  they have prepared. Just as the early  confidence of civilian Germany was  inspired by names on the maps������������������  Brussels, Antwerp, Lille. Belgrade,  "Warsaw, Monastir���������������������������so their morale  and their mental staying, power, undetermined by 'privations, must finally be broken by names on tlie maps.  "After making every possible inquiry of everybody I could find who  has lived in'Germany recently enough  to be fairly competent to judge, I believe that if the Germans are forced  permanently to evacuate one large  town on the Western front, whose  name could not be lied off the map,  we might at last be able to say that  the internal conditions of Germany  were bringing victorv within sight."

Hi; also analysed the figures issued  by Berlin for 19H-I5, and arrived at  the conclusion that .*i,500,000 men had  been permanently lost to the German  fighting forces by Jan. I. I9JG, leaving only 5,000,000 out of the original  9,000,000 maximum possible recruitment of German men effective for war.  You can put all the United Stales  except Alaska in Brazil aud have 200,-  000 square miles left.  There is one man whose name  stands out amid the conflict of the  European war for what he.has doiie  to save life. While' other destroy, he  preserves.  And this man is Chevalier Marconi,  who invented and perfected the wonderful "w-reless" telegraphy. To him  belongs the credit of saving life all  over Hie world, since lo his great invention thousands of people owe their  rescue from  maritime disaster.  The history of wireless telegraphy  is still short. As recently as JS99 messages were first sent from England to  France, while in 190*2 the "waves" he  bad mastered, carried greetings between Canada and England.  The first case on record of "wireless" being employed by a ship in dis-  tres occurred on March '���������). 1399. On  this date the R. F. Mat thews ran  into the. East Goodwin lightship during a heavy fog. The weather conditions would, in the. old days, have  rendered tbe work of rescue very  difficult, if not impossible. But the  It. F. Matthews was equipped with  what was then a novelty���������Marconi's  system of wireless telegraphy. Messages were sent ashore and speedily  brought lifeboats to the  rescue.  During the next ten years instances  are recorded of wireless aiding ships  in difficulties, but not until 190!) was  public interest really roused in this  matter.  On .'liniuiiry '-!���������'!. 1909. just t<*n years  after the case of the R. I'*. Matthews,  the Florida riimm-'d and sank tin:  great White Star liner the 'Republic,  off'tin: Xanluek"t Lightship, some  thirty miles from Ihe American coast.  'Ihe story of the loss of the Republic is the story of the pluck of .lack  k'iiins, the wireless operator. Binns  at once began to send out urgent culls  for help "O. Q. I)." Through tin;  0'nii.dliss air fIn; magic letters sped,  being recorded by every wireless receiver Lr liundr ds of miles. And  in answer ships changed their courses  and buiTieo to tbe scene of the disaster.  Si.vtv   miles  awny   was  the    Baltic,  separated from the sinking liner, with  its two thousand human souls, by a  dense fog. And from half past six at  night tho Baltic scoured the surface  of the nccf.n on its errand of mercy.  All through the long hours Binns sat  at his instrument sending out messages and directions lo the ship coming to the aid of the Republic.  And then, at night, after a clay of  zigzagging two hundred miles on the  ocean, the '.Republic sent the welcome  word to the Baltic that they were '  close together. The lookouts on the  ships could see nothing, but the wireless operators knew. And so the passengers of the Republic were saved by  means of wireiess telegraphy.  This splendid rescue brought the  \\~c of wirelesS for saving life well  before the world. Shipowners at once  began to see the necessity of having  their vessels fitted with it. Marconi  had fully proved his right to the honor  of saving life.  The following year, after Ihe saving  of the Republic, wireless telegraphy  was [Hit to still another use. In the  autumn of that year an Ameiicin inventor named Weliman set out in his  dirigible balloon, patriotically called  America, to cross the Atlantic. in  theory Ihe idea was good ; in practice  it went wrong. Presently Wclhuari and  his band of devoted In lpers found  themselves drifting aimlessly about  over the wide. Atlantic, with auparcnt-  ly little hope of rescue. But the wireless operator with ihe balloon^ succeeded ill calling aid to the stricken  airship.  This was one of the first cases where  two of the marvels of the age��������� wireless telegraphy and airships���������came into cotifect. Since then wireless telegraphy has been adapted to all sorts  anil sizes of air crnft.  While the Republic was the instance  which first drew attention to the  powers of wireless, the story of the  Titanic excels it in drama. On its  midden voyage aero.-'.-* the Atlantic  this gigantic liner shuck an icelmrc  in mid ocean on the night <>i April  H,  I9J2.  On board were 2,201 passengers and  crew, *,yhilc the vessel itself had cost  well over one million pounds to build.  Yet in a moment she became a helpless wreck.  The wireless operator sent his call  for help broadcast into tbe air, and  it was answered by the Carpathia,  which vessel steamed as quickly ae  possible to the rescue. But before she  had reached the scene of the disaster  the Titanic hud sunk. Out of the 2,000  odd human beings 7J2 were saved  from the lifeboats of the ill-fated ves-  scd. And it is quite accurate to say  that, but for the wireless call, most,  if not all of these must have perished  from exposure.  But it is not possible to mention  even all the. most remarkable rescues  effected by wireless. 'iTiere was the  Vulturno, which caught fire 1,000  miles west of the Irish coast, and in  answer to'.the wireless appeal no less  than eleven ships went to the rescue,  saving altogether 5*_'l lives.  Then again, when the Empress of  Ireland was struck by the Stor.-tad it  wireless  call  ended   in   the  saving of  j-152 lives.  i    But the instances are en dies?.
