C., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAR  to   the   Greenwood smelter.    Four,'  sets of four  are  hauling the  ore to'  the. station at   Merritt,   and   from  that town it is   shipped by the Ket-  tie Valley line to Greenwood.  A lamentable accident, by   which  the   life   of Josephine,   the  three-  year-old daughter of  Mr.  and  Mrs.  M.     Frankovitch,    was     untimely  extinguished, occurred at the Gran'd  Forks hotel   at  11  o'clock Wednesday  morning.   The little girl  was  sent by her mother to the pantry for  a piece of cake.   la. the kitchen had  been   placed a bucketful of  boiling  water for  the   purpose of   wasbing  clothes,   and   when   the  child   returned from the pantry she fell into  this water.    Although the cook and  the girl's mother were in the  kitchen at the time, neither of  them   actually witnessed the accident; but it  is  supposed   that the girl   was���������as  children often, have a habit of doing  ���������walk ng backwards at  the  time,  and that she stumbled against some  thing,   and  in   falling  sat down in  the   bucket  of   water.    The bucket  was not upset by her fall.-  The splash of  the fall attracted  the   mother's   attention,   and   the  child was immediately pulled out of  the boiling water  and   her clothing  removed from her as rapidly as possible. ��������� She  was dressed warmly for  winter, howpver, and this  operation  required   some   little   time. ���������    The  water had-heatedthe clothes .to such  an   ektent   that  in  undressing the  child   Mrs.    Frankovitch    severely  scalded her hands.  The girl lost consciousness shortly after  falling   into  the water, and she did not  regain it  before   her   death, which  occurred  at 6:30 in the evening.  Dr Truax was hastily summoned  after the accident, but he saw from  the first that there was a chance of  saving the child's., life, and his efforts were mainly in the direction of  alleviating her sufferings. ,  The victim of "this deplorable accident was an unusually bright  child, and the bereaved parents and  family have been tendered the  heartfelt sympathy of their ' many  friends.-  The funeral was held at 9:30 yesterday morning.  Principal H. A. Glaspell, nf the  public school, has been confined to  his home during the past week with  a severe cold.  flftACU  .4 meeting of the Grand Forks  Farmers institute will be held in  the rooms of the board*of trade, on  First street, on Saturday evening,  December 11.

There were in  the  neighborhood of 400 entries, all the Boundary  towns  and Rossland, Trail and other  Kootenay points being represented.

Bowen  The last statement issued by  the  British Columbia Copper company,  under date of   November  15,1915,  says ( the   New  York   Mining Age,  states that there are 8,900,000  tons  of   proven ore,   averaging  1.75 per  cent copper,  and  2,000,000 tons of  partially proven ore, averaging 1.75  per cent copper, or a   total   of   10,-  900,000 tons with  an average value  of 1.75 per cent copper and an   estimated value of .20 per ton   in   gold  and silver.  On the strength of these developments the company recommends  the installation of a flotation plant  with a daily capacity of 2000 tons  of ore, at which rate of extraction  the property would have a life of at  least fifteen years without developing any more ore reserves.  This  ore  has  been p.oven up by  78,000 feet  of diamond drilling and  30,000   feet of  trenching up to November 1. 1915.  In view of the fact that the company owns 735 acrps of mineral  ground and that three diamond  drills are at present in operation on  the same, it appears that the above  ore reserves will be materially added  to and that Canada Copper will enter the ranks of "the low cost producing porphyry mines within a  year or so.  That the property is a meritorious one is evidenced by the fact  that the  Canadian Pacific   Railway  Best bird   in   selling class, White coraPany's     engineers,   who   have  in which the tiger was supposed to have the heart to shoot a printer,"  have had his lair, and the matter he philosophized, 'because they  was dropped have suffered enough  at   their  own  trade."

If alUhe young  Trail News from VV. K. Esling.  T.

The line  has already been practically located,  and as soon as the  matter of  rates,  which   fs   being discussed  between  the mining company's officials and  the   railway   company's    officials,  has been decided upon the construction work will be started.  In the meantime work at the  old  prop-rlies at Greenwood, B C,which  was   resumed   last   August  after a  year's   idleness,    is     going     along  [smoothly, and the company is   real  izing good profits  as   the result   of  smelting   operations   now   in    progress.     The   Greenwood   ores   are  smelted    direct,   whereas     Copper  mountain   ores  are of  the disseminated   porphyry   type, and it is for  this reason that the  aforementioned  flotation plant for concentrating the  same has been recommended.    The  company's engineers   estimate  that  a maximum of  82,000,000 will   be  required to place the  property on a  producing basis of   2000 tons of  ore  per day, with an   estimated   cost of  production of 8������c per pound of copper after crediting  gold  and   silver  values for 50 per oent   of   the   tonnage and IOAc per pound of  copper  for the deeper ores.

It must be apparent, however,  that if one farmer in a locality can  get 50 bushels.an acre of wheat, other  farmers with the same soil, climate  and conditions, should be able to get  much tse same yields if they are  equally good agriculturists. In the  long rim it comes down pretty much  to the man's own ability. Provided the  soil, climate and water conditions are  right, the resl depends on the farmer  himself-. Proof that the. soil, climate  and water conditions; are right is of-'  Tercet', by the evidence of what some'  farmers are.actually doing as reported  from day to day hi.the daily press and  from other sources.

If  we are to successfully cope with the  weed problem on our farms, we  must go about it systematically, and  first remedy the causes which are  responsible for the spread of weeds.

The seed department at Ottawa  in an endeavor to find out to what  extent weed seeds are being scattered, through the using of impure"1  seed analysed samples of wheat,  oats, barley and flax. Of the 506  samples of spring wheat tested,'271,  or nearly 5-1 per cent, contained seeds  of-weed's classed as noxious under  the Seed Control Act. the highest  number being 11,528 per pound and  the average 79. Other Aveed seeds  .were found in 454, or nearly 90 per  cent.-'of the samples, the largest number being 17,415 per pound, and the  average IMS per pound- With this  weed seed .-content and the rate of?  seeding reported, the weed seeds  placsd / on the lanel would average  about 49 noxious and 214 other sorts  per square rod.  Weed   seeds   -were   especially    prevalent  in   the  Ilax  samples.    Out of  144 tested, 127, .or SS per  cent,  contained noxious weed  seeds,  the largest number per  pound    being .15,424 '  and    the  average   662.    Other  weed j  seeds were present in all but seven j  samples,   the   highest  number   being i  13,984   per    pound   and   the  average  4,097.    With this  weed seed content  and the rale of seeding reported; the  weeds  placed   on   the    land   through  sowing, flax  would  average  140  noxious and 760  other sorts per square  rod.    -.;  The'"Samples of oats and barley  were'equally bad.  The inquiry shows, that there is  a very general lack of-attention to  the proper cleaning of seed. Nearly  11 per cent', of the wheat, oats, barley-and flax sampled for the inquiry  was being sown direct fr,om the  thresher with no cleaning whatever.  Over SS per cent, of the lots, were  reported as - being cleaned with a  fanning mill, some being put. through  twice, but in most cases the cleaning  was very poorly done.  The lack of results from attempts  at cleaning with fanning mills not  properly equipped or regulated is  illustrated in connection with the inquiry.

To observers who had  watched and listened closely the  seeming sudden re-endownment of a  whole, people with, the spirit .of sacrifice and single-handsel enthusiasm and  the emergence of the shining sword  of "well-organized efficiency did not  -surprise except in the sense that the  reality was a finer tiling by far than  had been waited for through some  years of darkness. It was'known that  France had found her soul again���������  that the. things that mystified by  their.rottenness were seen riier'ely-be-'  cause their rottenness had lifted them  to float ' upon,the surface of the water  as so much unsightly refuse. In the  year before the war the visitors to  Paris" who had eyes to sea became  aware, that France -had..reached back  to her past, and was cherishing again  the ideals that had made .her great  among the nations.

A sample of oats reported as  cleaned with a fanning mill contained 4.S00 wild mustard seeds, 3S  Canada thistle and 174 other weed  seeels per pound.  In  order to  make  first class  seed  i if is usually advisable to reduce  the  j bulk   from 'one-third   to   one-half   by  j cleaning  and  grading,    in   order     to  remove    all   weed   seeds    and  other  I impurities    as    well  as  the   inferior  j kernels.    Most  farmers appear to be  I content    with    putting    their    grain  through a fanning mill once or twice  when   preparing   for  seed   and   often  the  mills are not properly equipped.

Journal gives a  very striking answer to the question:  What has Great Britain done? It  points out that while her navy, her  financial credit and a smalt expedi-  tionary army were all that were asked  by the allies, she has swept the seas  of German commerce, placed upwards  of a million men in tha field, and got  another two millions -in readiness;  has lent her allies .-'more than $2,000,-  000,000 and has conquered every German colony except (ho Giimeroons.  Continuing, the Wall Street Journal  says:  "By her own; en lightened system of  colonial government the Boers have  wiped out the German colony/ in  Southwest Africa, the French Ca'nad-'  ians are fighting on the Belgian frontier, the Irish are, characteristically,  "fighting Jn the thickest of the fray,  and the supposed seditious Hindoos  and Mohammedans are cleaning up  all the German political gains in Turkish.

Canadian workshops are  producing one million empty shells per  month and 17,444 shells per day with  fixed ammunition. The latter will be  increased to 50,000 per day in the near  future.  Get   the   Safety    Habit   and    Pass  Along for the  Benefit of Others  When you leave your home for your  day's work, ' do you remember that  constant care is necessary? Do you,jin  when you arrive at, the office, factory,  or shop, bear in mind your own safety  and that of others? . To think first of  safety means consideration for others; it means live*? spared and fewer  vacant chairs.  Blost accidents can be prevented,  but what is each' one of us doing to  prevent accidents? We must not expect, that care will lie taken for our  safety and never take thought for  that of another.  It.is estimated that a man's average  earning power** is $700 per annum.  Some of us receive more and some  less, but whatever we earn each year  will be reduced after a serious accident and will'be stopped by death.  What are you going to do about it?

Preparing for Spring  Home     Gardens    and     Vacant     Lots  Should Have Autumn Cultivation  Custom or habit alone explains the  fact that the  home gardener almost  universally leaves his garden plot, in a  neglected condition until spring,  attempt  is  made  to  prepare  for  next season's planting.  If the farmer were to follow  system, the results would be disastrous. In the spring he would find  himself with wet and heavy land,  would be unable to work it and the  delay would mean late crops, if any at  all.  The garden should be dug in autumn, leaving the earth loose, if new  soil is being used, the sod should be  turned under a depth of four inches  to ensure rotting. Vines, dead leaves,  or weeds should be burned, and the  ashes, together with a quantity of  good stable manure, if available,  should be dug well in.  The results of attention' to lib;  in   the   autumn   will ���������fully   repay  home gardjner in the saving of  in the spring and in increased production.  Suggestions For Reducing Fire. Lo������  on the Farm' and in the  Village  Farmers and villagers should bo  among the most active of lire proteev  tionists. While most villages havf-  some lire fighting ."system, few have,  paid. departments. Living isolated  from auto pumping fire-engines,.'chemical and other .apparatus, and (irt  alarm boxes, the farmer or the villager must constitute himself im individual lire-department. It is in the autumn and winter when the stoves, tlnr,  open .fireplaces and the kerosene  lamps come into use that the fire daiv-  ger is greatest. Internal vigilance is  tiic price of safety.  Many count: y and village homes  have a "store room" into which, efur-  in'g the, cold months, rubbish and debris are thrown indiscriminately.  Newspapers, rags, old clothes, etc,  constituting the most inflammable collection, '-ara-thrown ir%to this room, us-  ���������usillj ' lie worst���������front the fire protection staudpoint���������in the house. Mosi  villagers use (he kerosene lamp or  possibly a tallow candle while searching in the cellar or store room. The  lamp or candle is put down, a rat runs  out'anil,-in. the excitement, especially  if- a woman is present, the light is  frequently-, knocked, over and a blaze  is almost certain to result. Water is  hard to get, pumps freeze up and the  farmer or villager is powerless whea  the fire-develops.  During the sumniar, l-Jtiglish sparrows carry nest-making-material into  | cracks and crannies, "building ne.sts.  ! close to chimneys and flues. Chimney  ! swallows, nesting in the stacks, knock  j the mortar from the bricks and makes  [holes through which sparks find their  way to tlis sparrow's nosi. A mysterious fire results, generally on the coldest night of the year.  All flues and chimneys should be  examined before the fires are lighteil  tutunin. Water should be drawn  at night and placed in paiis where it  will not freeze. Roofs should be examined and cleared of curling  shingles and other spark catchers.  The store room should he the most,  carefully kept room in the house-  Rats, mica and squirrels should hi  cleared out. Lanterns should be kepi:  filled, cleaned and with wicks of proper length. A dirty, short-wicked Ian-  fern, full of oil. is a bad fire hazard.  All eU'ael herbage should Jbe removed from the house and outbuildings. Sparks travel far on a winter  gale and. alighting on dry herbage,  are dangerous. Bonfires arc a banc.  Most persons who have large yards  could well afford to build a small  furnace of brick, covering the stack  with wire netting,-and thus burn thc-  refuse without danger. Smoking  about barns.should be prohibited and  lanterns placed where stock cannot  kick them over. At. all times, lanterns  should be kept in a safe place- A  small electric torch is a good invest-  .inent where hay and fodder must be ���������  reached in the darkness. Matches  should be kept in a tin box tightly  covered and placed out of the reach  of small children. No member of the  family should search in cupboards or  drawers with a match for a light. This  is*i an imperative rule which is frequently violated.  Where wood is the heating fuel,  there should be a wire front over the  fireplace to stop the sparks. Where  coal is used, a wide fendev will often  slop a threatened blaze. Coal, "snapping" out into tho room, causes many  fires. The place for ashes is a metal  can and the place for the ..can is  where its sides will not come into contact with wood. Because tliey do not  show sparks, is no reason for believing that wood or coal ashes are not  dangerous. Remember that ashes, especially the finer kinds, hold heat for  a long time-  Thfc foregoing cautions may seem  simple but are frequently, forgotten.  It is the unusual that often happens.  Teachers in village and country  schools should cdueala ihn children  to think of the dangers.

The  purpose is to ascertain whether Canada is being discriminated  the rales.    Only  in  such  ency,  it is said, does the  consider that,  it can   have  kiting powers.  It is stated that the rates from Australia and the United States are practically the same as from Canada, that  the rate, from India is slightly lower  on account of the smaller demand for  transports at present, but that tho  rate from Argeiilinc is considerably  higher than from Canada.  -The committee holds that, unless  the rates arc discriminating' against  Canada, it. is difficult to say whether  It-he increase is borne by the producer  (here or by'the. consumer in England-  As to securing sufficient tonnage at  reasonable rates, it is claimed that  Britain can not'be expected to commandeer ships for wheat from Canada.  It is contended Britain is nsi. purchasing the wheat crop as a whole, and  is ready to secure her wheat supply,  wherever-she can tlo so more cheaply,  with preference, other things being  equal, for the dominions.

The introduction of the tobacco  habit among the Chinese dates back  only a, few years, and its spread  throughout the country has been astonishingly rapid, so it is stated by  Consul General Anderson at Hongkong. The cigarette habit is not confined to the male portion of the population. The females of all classes and  ages, from-ten years of age.' upward,  indulge as freely and openly in cigarettes, and with as much apparent enjoyment, as do their brothers.  An Always Ready Pill.���������To those  of regular habit medicine is of little  concern, but the great, majority of  men are net of regular habit. The'  worry and cares of business prevent  it, and out of the irregularities of life  comes dyspepsia, indigestion, liver  and kidney troubles as a protest. The  run-down system demands a corrective and there is none better than  Parmelee's Vegetable Pills. They are  simple in their composition and* can  be taken by the most delicately e:on-  tituted.  Australia's Example  Australia has a population of less  than 5.000,000; Canada, over S,000,000.  Therefore, the contribution of the  island continent to the war is all the  more creditable in comparison. She  has sent 76,566 men overseas and 2-1,-  000 horses. 'Besielo this, '10,000 troops  are in camp there waiting their turn  to go forward, while 8,000 are doing  duty on home service. An added expense has been the convoying of her  troops across seas with her own battleships. Over all is the determination of the government "to continue to  train, equip and transport to the seat  of war every available man presenting himself for service who siie;ceods  in passing the necessary medical examination." It would be difficult to  find a more gratifying record of loyalty to the empire- Canada is doing  well; her antipodean sister is doing  better.���������J lamilton   Spectator.,  BREEN  MOTOR CO..

B.C  FRIDAV,   DECEMBER  10, 1915  Premier McBride is opposed  to direct legislation, which, he  says, is contrary to the spirit  of British  representative  institutions and responsible government.    According to   his  view, "it is a form legislative  procedure growing  up in the  United  States, with   unsatisfactory   and    expensive    results."    Sir   Richard   forgets  that something  quite   similar  to direct legislation has worked very satisfactorily for years  both in   New  Zealand    and  Australia.   Therefore it is not  contrary   to   British  institutions and responsible government.    Nearer   to   our   own  hearth, Alberta and Manitoba  have adopted this system, and  we sure sure that neither of  these provinces at present are  as  expensive  to  operate   as  British Columbia government.  It   is  quite natural that the  premier, in his present mood,  should  be anxious  to   trace  every law that he  dislikes  to  the United States.  If we had  gone over there with  the  intention of floating a  big  railway   loan,   and  failed to accomplish our object, we would  probably   be   as   piqued   at  American laws,and everything  else American, as Sir Richard  is just previous to a provincial  election.  I   rid answered:   "I have no sword to'' ^q CENT "GASCAEETS"  give   up     But   won't   my     vitriol I if BILIOUS OR COSTIVE  spray, my oil projector, or   my gas-    cylinder do as well?"

The adoption of the principle of  direct legislation by the Liberals of  British Columbia places them in line  with the policy of the Liberals of the  great provinces of Albert and Manitoba. It may be of interest to point  out that the government of Alberta  found it advisable to enact their "Direct Legislation Act" as a base upon  which to submit the "Liquor Act"  which recently received the overwhelming endorsation of the elector  ate of that province. The Alberta  "Direct Legislation Act" is very simple yet very comprehensive in its enactments.  An official may resign, on request  of a higher official, and still not be  "fired."

It is the brightest  paper in the Boundary cou itry ���������-it: . ;. ���������  Those pacifists who declare that the .war brings out the worst that.is  in a nation must have formed their opinion  from reading the war poetry  in the daily press.    It has come to point where anybody who really likes  good verse turns away  reslutely  from these effusions for fear that they  may prejudice one against poetry forever.    Yet we must not  forget that  the war   has   produced   several  poems that  will live, such as Rupert  Brooke's sonnets "1914" and John  Masefield's "August, 1914," and here  and there one comes across pieces, not of the first rank, but well   worth  quoting.    There ar.e several such poems in "At the Front," a pocket-book  of verse published by Frederick Warne and Company, all of the profits of  which   are   to   go  to   the British Red Cross. , It contains extracts from  Wordsworth, Shakespeare ard other classics, but one reads first the efforts  of Gerald Caldwell, P. R. Chalmers and Julian Grenfell, men of the moment   whose   in-piration comes   from   experience.    It would be a good  thing   if   some   of   the   papers   that are filled with doggerel   about  the  war would reproduce such poems as "In Battle," by Julian Grenfell, who  died of wounds last May:  Delicious "Fruit Laxative" can't harm  tender little Stomach, liver  .  and bowels.  The naked earth is warm with Spring,  .      And with green grass and bursting trees  Leans to the sun's gaze glorying,  And quivers in.the sunny breeze;  And Life is Color and Warmth and Light,  And a striving evermore for these;  And he is ..dead who will not fight;  And who.dies fighting has increase.  The fighting man shall from the sun  , IJike wa.rmth, and life from the glowing earth;  fepeed with the light-foot winds to run  And with the trees to newer birth;  And find, when fighting shall be done,  Great rest and fulness after dearth.  The woodland trees that stand together,  They stand to him each one,a friend;  They gently speak of the windy weather;  They guide to valley and ridges' end.  The kestrel hovering by day,  And-the little owls that call by night,  Bid him be swift and keen as they,  As keen of ear, as swift of sightr-  The blackbird calls to him, "Brother,  If this be the last song you shall sing, '  Sing well, for you may not sing another;  Brother, sing."  In dreary, doubtful, waiting hours,  Before the brazen frenzy starts,  The horses show him nobler powers;  0 patient eyes, courageous hearts!-  And when the bursting moment breaks,  And all things else are out of mind,  The only joy of battle takes  - Him by the throat and makes.him blind.  Thrpugh joy and blindness he shall know,  Not caring much to know, that still  . Nor steel nor lead shall reach him, so  That it be not the Destined Will.  The thundering line of battle stands,  ��������� And in the air Death moans and sings:  But Day shall clasp him with strong hands,  And night shall fold bim in soft wiims.

Seed   Gram  Grade  is  Put   Into   Effect  in  West      ������,  A new grade of wheat, oats and barley has been put into effect bv order-  in-council.  This special grade will be known  as tho "seed grain'grade," and certificates for this grade will be issued  from the interior storage elevators at  Moose Jaw, Calgary :md Saskatoon-  The minister of agriculture will place  seed inspectors at rheso elevators and  grain sent out will be under certificate from them. A memorandum  just issued contains an explanation of  the new grades.   It says:  "The new government interior storage elevators at Calgary, .Mocse Jaw  and Saskatoon are splendidly equipped for cleauing and warehousing  seed grain. They were designed to  meet the very real need of proper facilities that would make grade of wheat,  oats and barley that, are clean and  suitable for seed. This grade will become effective about December 1, after which it will bo given for car lots  of clean, grain of superior quality, including red life and marquis wheat,  white oats and six-rowed barley submitted for inspection and clcanim: aL  any of the government interior terminal elevators. Warehouse receipts  and certificates of grading will be issued as for the standard commercial  grades thus making this grade conveniently available in commerce to  farmers, seedmen and grain deahjrs  who sell seed grain. .  "it is not to be supposed that this  grade or seed grain is comoarable  with selected seed grain that is pure  as to variety, grown bv export seed-  growers, subjected to special screening, and offer.ed in the market at hisrh  prices. ]t is rather the object to provide a substitute for commercial  grade that are more or less contaminated with weed seeds, and which  have heretofore constituted the main'  source of supply of grain that has j  been used for seed." j  Money in Livestock  Excellent Plan to Interest Farmers in  Livestock industry  It is generally recognized that although grain growing may produce  immediate profits, the safe and. sound  basis of agriculture in Western Canada, as everywhere else, is stock-raising. Although herds grow rapidly after the first few years, it takes a little  capital to make a proper start, and  many farmers continue growing grain  as their main industry because they do  not feel able to wait the several years  necessary before a herd of stock can  bo built tip. To assist farmers in this  predicament, and also incidentally to  assist themselves through improved  business conditions, business men at  certain points have organized to raise  capital for the purchase of livestock,  which is advanced to fanners with an  opportunity to pay it back out of the  proceeds. At Lclhbridge, the organization has now placed 77 animals with  setLlers in thai district, and the results show that farmers who took advantage of this opportunity are now  making good money from the in ilk,  cream, and :natural increase which  they arc able to market. Their payments arc being met regularly, and  the livestock industry is being placed  on a sound footing in the district  A Determined Woman  Finally   Found   a   Food   That   Helped  Her  "When I first read of the remarkable effects of Grape-Nuts "food, I determined to secure some." says a  western woman. "At that time there  was none kept in this town, but my  husband ordered some from a commercial traveller.  "1 had been greatly afflicted with  sudden attacks .of cramps, nausea, and  vomiting. Tried all sorts of remedies  and physicians, but obtained only  temporary relief. As soon as I began  to use Grape-Xuts tho cramps disappeared and have never returned.

"My husband was so delighted with  tho benefits 1 - received that he has  'neon recommending Grape-Xuts to his  customers and has built up a very  large trade on the food.

Agricultural Education  So nopuiar has I he course in practical agriculture become that the demand for admission into Alberta government schools of agriculture promises to exceed the accomodation.  There arc at. present three of these  schools. located at Vermilion. Old:;  and Claresholm. Farmers' boys and  girls may" attend the schools during  the winter months at a very nominal  cost, and are given practical instruction in many matters of great value  to thorn in their farm life. The boys  are taught carpenter work, black-  smithing, soil and seed selection, detection "of noxious weeds and how to  erradicato them, the use and care of  farm implements, gasoline engines,  etc.. and a general knowledge of livestock, dairying, and all branches of  husbandry. The girls are instructed j  in domestic science, cooking, sewing,  household management, and kindred  subjects. The object of the. schools  is not to turn out professors of agriculture (the work is reserved for-agricultural colleges), but to fit boys and  girls to be farmers and farmers'  wives.

Indians Will  Not Starve This Winter  Reports received by the department  of Indian affairs from its various  agencies in the north and Avest indicate that tho Indians may be^cxpected  to pass the coming winter with as little degree of hardships" as possible  under the circumstances of decreased  demand for fur trapping.  Last winter some assistance wa3  given to the Indians in the north to  secure provisions and traps to catch  food, this being rendered necessary  on account of the fact that the fur  trading companies did not make tl.e  usual advances for Llip1 winter trapping.  Reports arc to the effect that food  is very plentiful this fall, and that  there will bo no fear of hardship from  starvation to those who desire to trap  for food purposes.  Work is also said to be assured in  many localities to all industrious and  able-bodied men.

New  modes of offensive and defence that  may revolutionize navy warfare have  been adopted, and high 'British naval  officers arc of the opinion that unless  "the effectiveness of the submarine is'  increased, it will no longer constitute  a menace.  According to the reports destruction or.capture of 50 submarines actually- had been reported several  weeks ago, and it was regarded as  possible that the number has reached 70.

Huge nets have been stretched  across the channels through which the  submarines may be expected to pass  and in open waters, near steamship  lanes or in the vicinity of warships,  facoL as it evidently must,  it is destroyed by gun fire or captured.  A special type of mine also has been  devised which is laid in large fields  that have proved particularly dangerous to submarines approaching  steamer lanes.  The German methods of supplying  ^.���������bmarines with oil from concealed  places along the coasts has been disposed of- This compels the boats to  return to their bases at more frequent  intervals.  Aeroplanes    arc exceedingly -.������������������ccful  in locating submarines.    They" can detect one even 100 feet beneath the surface.   It is a habit of the German submarines to slip into favorable position  along the steamer lanes and lie on the  ."bottom for long periods, rising occasionally'for observation.  As  the batteries are not exhausted, the boats not  being in motion, only a brief stay on  the surface is necessary to renew the  ! air supply and take a hurried observation.   'Undersea boats adopting these  j tactics  have  been  the  most  difficult  j to watch.   Here    the aeroplanes have  | shown  their great usefulness  as  the  comparatively  shallow    water    along i  much of the  British  coast    makes it \  possible  for tho  aeroplane   operators  to see the ships lying on (ho bottom.  The aeroplane notes the position and  notifies    the nearest, destroyer or patrol boat, which speeds to the spot and  waits for the submarine to rise.  ELABORATENESS    OF    THE   GERMAN     TRENCHES  Germans   Fought   Desperately   and   the.;-Viciousncss   of  Their  Resistance was".Duetto Their Rage Over the Loss of Their  Dugouts .Which'Cost Them so Much Labor  i  Roar of French Guns  Germans Are Perfecting a New Aerial  Engine  Tho aerial tropedo invented by a  Swedish officer and sojd to' Krtipps  may have been the basis qf Germany's  new air weapon, but certainly it is not  the finished article. The Swedish invention resembles a huge shell fitted  with a turbine ��������� engine driven by gas  pressure; the German air torpedo-is  more like an airship fitted with propellers driven by electricity and controlled from a Zeppelin by wireless.  The German aerial torpedo can, theoretically,'remain in the air for three  hours, and can be controlled from  distance of two miles. Both weapons  are discharged from a tube like a marine torpedo, but in the case of the  Gorman- invention two propellers -and  two lifting screws are automatica4ly  started at the moment of discharge.  In shape, this torpedo of the air,  which is -.bout seven feet long, resembles the submarine weapon. It is  composed of two cases, the outer of  thin chrome nickel and the inner of  material' similar to that used in Zep<  pelins- About one-sixth of the space  at the rear is occupied by an electric  accumulator at the bo.ttom, and an  electric motor generator secured to  the top. The machinery is controlled  by Hertzian waves acting on the  Telefunken system of wireless, and it  is claimed that up to a distance of  two miles the air torpedo can be  steered at will.  The air torpedo is inflated with  water gas and compressed gas, but  as it is heavier than the air, two  lifting screws work under the body  to keep the torpedo in the air, while  the motive power is supplied by propellers. Both screws and propellers  are connected with the same shaft,  which runs through the body of tha  torpedo.  When the air, torpedo, after flying  through, the air, hovers immediately  over the selected target it is made to  assume a vertical position, the lifting  horizontal screws and propellers are  stopped, and the torpedo dives to the  ground, carrying a large quantity of  high explosive charge at its nose. The  charge explodes on contact like an ordinary shell, and if is said that in two  torpedoes there is sufficient explosive  Uncanny   Sensation  as  of the   Underground Growling of Distant  Volcano  The Cologne Gazette publishes the  following" account by the German  author.-Dr. George Wegner, of the terrific bombardment'which preceded the  French attack in Champagne:  It-is Friday morning- During the  night we have 'been hearing the  sound of distant gunfire, .which in volume and duration exceeded anything  experienced since we have been here.  Yesterday evening the bombardment  was exceptionally lively. Then it died  down towards midnight, but'about 4  o'clock' this morning it started afresh  with tho unprecedented intensity  typical of a big scale bombardment,  with shot following shot in one unbroken growl of thunder like the roll  of drums.

The like  of it had not been heard since the  days when the first German advance  passed like a storm over tin's section.  Where is it?   What does it mean'.'  The thunder- of distant guns can be  better heard upon the hills than in the  valley, so we went up to the top of  the hill which rises outside the town.  I have just returned. It is now 11  a.m., and the guns are still thundering the extraordinary roii of n bombardment in the Argonne, which was  the prelude to a French attack on  the Marie Therese field works- Jt  has lasted from eight to eleven���������three  hours, and the other bombardment  has already been goi  twice as long.

It is as if the sound came up  from unknown depths of the earth,  indeed, more than anything it is like  the uncanny underground growling of  a distant volcano in eruption, shaking the earth's crust for miles  around,  and  making  it  tremble  like  macy. *>.

'  How I wish I could tell everything.  Unfortunately, 1 am bound to much  reserve and circumspection. . But f  need oniy hint, and what I must conceal wili bo divined.  'i'c can no longer be concealed that  the number of German submarines  destroyed since the debut of their operations is very considerable.  One  of  the    principal    resulls.   of  Great Britain's maritime   action    has  been  to   render  ineffective    the    attempted blockade which the Germans,  in defiance of Uie laws of war, imagined they    could    accomplish  by employing   the   most   formidable naval  weapon which  science has placed in  their hands.    All the precautions that j  long    experience    of    the sea and its \  battles could suggest have been taken. I  Skill,   boldness,   courage   and   energy j  have met all the needs of the case. As-1  stiredly   the   submarines   of   Admiral j  1 irpitz have not exhausted the list of I  their exploits.    They will continue to j  show in attackng warships an audacity which their enemies were the first  to   recognize.     But   their   impotence  becomes   manifest   in   crimes   against  private individuals and the danger of  their   operations   against   themselves  has lost much of its importance. Their  field of action is limited, their power  , of   destruction  meets   barriers.

Finding the towns and  | villages  evacuated   by    the   Russians  | bare  of provisions and the distances  I between the towns becoming greater  j the  farther they penetrated into the  | country," and incessantly harassed by  the Russians troops, some of the invaders are declared.to display a ferocious and revengeful temper.  The atrocities laid at their door are  said   by the Russian people to be as  bad    as those committed in Belgium,  just after the opening of the war.   In j  many placas, for example, especially  on more than j in   the    three days' fight around the;  | fortress of Novo Georgiey.sk,  all  the j  Russian wounded left oii the   battlefields  were  killed,  according to  Russian  reports.

With rifles and  bombs  | lying about, the Germans, even after  capitulating, were likely to seize them  and. rush-to the cover of a traverse  trench or into a shell crater and renew the fight.  The Germans fought desperately  and-the viciousncss of their counterattacks apparently .was due to rage  over the loss of their comfortable dugouts, which had cost them so much  painstaking labor and the unpleasant  prospect-of a winter in the mud building caves. .".'..  The rear of the army during the  action presented a. -wondrous varied  scene, which was the more concentrated because, of the narrow front of  tiie operations. There were the slightly wounded walking back, the steady-  tramp of fresh regiments going forward, processions .of swift, smooth  running motor ambulances, whose  .burdens would be back in England in  2-1 hours, longer and seemingly endless processions of powerful "motor  trucks loaded with shells to feed the  hungry, ever-thundering -unseen guns,  troops of the reserves in the field or  beside the gorged roads, waiting their  call, -while the French population  stood in their doorways and asked  for the latest news.  At a place near the front a park of  captured guns guarded by a pacing  British .sentry seemed an attraction  more.symboliclof success to inhabitants than to the parties, of German  prisoners." The distances of the last  s-anges at which they were fired before the British infantry engulfed  them are chalked on some of the gun-  shields. Perhaps the most interesting  trophy is a Russian machine gun  taken by the Germans from the Russians on the eastern front and now  re-taken by the British.  The German prisoners were wall  clothed, neat and fresh in their comfortable dugouts, -where they were  caught by surprise, but evidently they  appreciated the generosity of .the-British rations. Three thousand prisoners  were taken by the British, which was  a small percentage of the German  loss.
