 j_SJ������wS������B������i������Ei_>A,  Kettle Valley Orchardist  FIFTEENTH YEAR���������No   14  GRAND FORKS,gB. C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1916  $1.00 PER YEAR  THE DOGS  A great professional game  of hockey was played.at the  local rink on Wednesday night,  the opposing teams being  Evans' Sun-Dogs and Savage's  Savages. The ..gate receipts  went to the Red Cross, and  the treasurer yesterday turned  over $35.30 to that* society.  The first period surprised  the audience. It was the  fastest hockey ever seen in  Grand Forks. Mills, of the  Dogs, was the only in this  period who found the net.  The Aborigines played like  savages, but the Dogs were  too agile for them.  In the second period the  Dogs added four more goals  to their score, while the Savages only found the net twice.  There were many brilliant  plays made during this period,  but The Sun reporter was too  absorbed in his own stick work  to notice them all.  The third period came very  near proving   disastrous   for  the Dogs.   The Say ages were  hungry and  the   Dogs were  tired.     However,   when   the  bell   rang it  was found that  ��������� the  game   had  gone* to  the  Dogs  by a score  of 7 goals  to 0.  ������������������'���������'    For the Dogs, Mills, Binion,  Hodgson   and   Lane   distinguished themselves.    All  the  goals   were   made   by  these  players,   with  the   exception  of   one,   which   the   captain,  after much difficulty, managed  to make.    The Savages were  pretty  evenly  matched,   and  each man will have to take an  equal amount  of   blame  for.  losing the game.  The fence was well .lined  throughout the game. - At. one  time there were only six men  on the ice. This was one of  the puzzling mysteries of the  evening, because the game  was played in a perfectly gen-  tlemanlymanner, no one being  hurt or disabled.  It was the only game ever  played in Grand Forks were  there has been no kick on the  referee.  referee was (iin-rt two bits���������which  was the usual amount collected from  the players���������for not ringing the be11  when an off side play was made.  The captain of the Sun-Dogs had to  dig up because be did not fall down  during the game,and a large number  of other players were fined because  they did fall. It is difficult to im  agine in what attitude the collector  expected the men. to play the., game.  Gus Parker had to' pay because he  skated too slow, and Mills because  he was too fast. The man who could  have strdclc the happy medium in  that game, and thus escape being  penalized, would have had to be  possessed of second sight. Some  of tbe players, we believe, were  even fined for' flirting with the  young ladies in the audience.  The smelter mechanics and a team  picked from among the other Granby     employees   will   play a   game  of   hockey   at   the   rink   on Monday night next The line-up will be:  Mechanics,   Chas.    Wekell,    Chas.  Haverty,    Jack   Currie,   McMillan,  W. Teileman, C. Anderson, A. Carter, P. Wright, N   McNevin;   Smel-  termen,    H.  Benson, J. Luscombe,  J.   Bush,   Chas.   Bickerton, G.  Mc-  Cabe,   R. Dobsnn,   H. Johnston, D.  Ma lien,    C.    Holmes.     Referee,   En  Stattavvav;  timekeeper, J. D. Camp-  hell.   Any    member  of the line up  who does not put in   an  appearance  at the game will be subject to a fine.  The proceeds of the  game   will    be  donated   to   the   Red   Cross society  and the Daughters of the Empire.  A dispatch from  Victoria,  dated the 10th inst., says that  on that day a-writ was issued  to the returning officer of the  Rossland   City  electoral  district fixing the date of nominations  for the   bye-electiou  for February 24..   The polling  will take place  on  Saturday,  Feb.   26.    R. L. T. Evans has  been appointed returning officer.    So  far  this  is the only  date  set for a  bye-election.  Two  others, in  Victoria and  Vancouver, in which the government   candidates   will   be  Hon.   A. ' C.  Flumerfelt and  Hon. C. E. Tisdall, will be decided upon in   the course of a  few    days.     Mr.   Flumerfelt  will be opposedoin Victoria by  H. C. Brewster, Liberal leader   in   the   province, and   in  Vancouver M. A. Macdonald,  president  of   the   Provincial  Liberal association, will   run  against Mr. Tisdall.  Hon. Lome Campbell,.the  government candidate in Ross-  land, left Victoria on Wednesday by wa}' of Spokane for his  constituency, where he will be  kept busy until after the election. Mayor Willson, of Ross-  land, will run against him as  the Liberal candidate.  Please do hot forget to mark for  which of the funds the donation is  destined, which will be duly acknowledged.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  R. R. Gilpin, customs officer at  this port, makes the following detailed report of the customs receipts  at the head office in this city and at  the various sub-customs offices, for  the month of January, 1916:  Grand Forks '...$12,633.09  Phoenix  Cascade  Carson..  435.63  111.07  63.86  Total $13,243 65  1RDS SENT TO  IWER PLANTS  A detachment of forty men of  the 7"2nu overseas btttalion left  Vancouver Sunday night fur Bon-  nington Falls and Trail. At Trail  they will provide a military guard  for the big smelter of the Consolidated 'Mining & Smelting company.  At Bonnington they will furnish a  guard for the two power plants of  tbe city ofNelson and the West  Kootenay Power & Light company,  which provide light and power for  Nelson and several other Kootenay  towns as well as for all the mines  and smelters in the Boundary district.  ������E TAX CASE  The  provincial  government   has  received a cable stating that  it  has  been successful in the  appeal to the  privy council against a judgment declaring   the  estate   of   the   late F.  Augustus Heinze must pay taxes on  600,000  acres   of  land, half of the  Columbia & Western land   grant in  West    Kootenay.    The   appellants  lost.    More than twenty  years  ago  Heinze was given these government  lands in consideration of  building a  railway which was later sold to  the  Canadian Pacific railway.    So  long  as  the lands  remained   undivided  they could not be taxed, but   a   few  years ago tbe Canadian  Pacific railway succeeded in forcing a  division  of the property.   Now alter carrying  the matter through many courts tbe  provincial government  has succeeded in forcing its   view on  taxation,  and the lands will have to pay heavy  charges now owing  or   be   sold out  by the government.

At the same time the Serbian  minister has-- to announce that several relief funds in Seibia are sending through him their appeal to all  benevolent men and women, fathers  and mothers, and all philanthropic  institutions, painting the horrible  suffering of the Serbian refugees,  the starvation of the population  staying at home in Serbia, the pain  ful scenes of the desperate mothers  and frozen children. Many thousands of refugees are dispersed in tbe  villages of Greece, in the Albanian  desert or in the rocky hollows of  Montenegro, without home, without  food. The life of these refugees is  now nothing else than a slow dying  out. This help will be a real help  only if it comes as quickly as possible.  Such   appeals   have  been   made  from the following funds:  The Serbian Archbishop   of   Bel  grade's relief fund for   the  families  of the fighting men.  The St. Helen's relief fund for the  orphans, whose fathers   were   killed  in the war.

Nelson writes: "As there  are a number of the boys who would  like this information to get to their  relatives, could you hawe this information published in other papers  of British Columbia, as it is very  discouraging to not receive letter  from the home folks."

P. Marshall, Niagara Falls, Canada, Breeder Niagradot White  Wyandottcs  At this time when wc have rounded  up ihe product of the season and know  to a ���������large exLent Hie result of our efforts, no doubt many will go giving  considerable thought, how to repeat iu  some cases and in others how to make  desired' Improvement for the coming  year. IL is not too early to plan now  and it may bo that the value of doing  this early' may bring a considerable  increased profit because the breeder  was ready to meet all necessities and  had his work planned so as to bring  the best, results before it was too  late.  Without some future definite objective it always seems as though very  little  good . result ��������� would  be possible.  Whether   it is to win some show that  the breeder litis in mind or whw������her to  produce something thatavill make better results  possible in  the matter of  eggs or meat or to.bring .bigger ���������profit  in some way oi- other, it seems quite  clear that unless some such ideal is  ever in mind the routine that must be  continuously   followed     when    it   is  planned and worked out wilt kill the  first interest: and make, the work so  commonplace   that   it   will   be   much  neglected   and   poor   results   secured  just as sure as grass is green.  '."When we hear of men arranging so  that the growing chicks can be fed at  4.30-a.m., and of others giving an extra   feed   at   10   p.m.,   surely  we   can  realize that such  arrangements must  be due to a great ambition to get results and the  working put of a plan  that  will  produce just a little better  than the man who will not take every  precaution   that will be helpful in securing the most possible. Heavy milking cattle are probably fed considerably more than poor milkers, but in a  great  many  dairies  it  has compelled  the owners to insert an extra milkin  so as to take care of the high  tiou of the cows.    Left to the  sweet will these same animals would  not produce half they do but the study  of ���������the ' very best  producing methods  have developed a routine that brings  very much   increased  yearly returns.  Many  who havo..chickens coultl very  much improve their returns by giving  the matter just, a little thought, planning the work along what they know  positively to be better than they are  now  using  and   by  sticking  to  sure  producing methods have a season that  would he full of profitable return and  lie a real satisfaction.  When a photographer develops a  picture ho can tell pretty well why it  did not come up as it. should and the  experienced poultryman should be  able to see in a general way what bus  been wrong with the results if he has  the breeders before him and the finished product. Of course it is not always so, but so much may be indicated by what is available and that  can be seen in the breeders and the  product. If the birds have not grown  well, it may be due to the breeding  stock, the "feeding, or tiie environment. All of these things may Lv  readily determined if the breeder tines  any sort of judgment and by planning  now. doubtless a repetition of the  same  difficulty  may be  avoided.  rherc is one tiling that all can settle as advisable and that is that only  the very best birds for the purpose for  wnich  they are bred  be retained and  that any falling below    the  requirements  be sold  or  disposed of.    This  may seem a very strict rule to follow,  but  anyone   who' has   become  accustomed   to culling  closely  appreciates  that only when  that is done can the  best   progress  be   expected.   In  many  dairies    where the only requirements  of the  cows  is  that  they produce  a  large amount of milk records are kept  to see that all cows are keeping above  the    average.    Any  falling below an  average   that   is   set   as   essential   is  sold  at  once  and  another  fakes  her  place,    fn large manufacturing plants  when everything is. running full swing  and all machinery going, the question  arises if it is not serious loss of production -to have poor   workers using  machines  that   might   produce   more  with more skilled workers.   High production then can only be secured  by  changing for better workers; Jc is just  the same with.'the-:.hens.    Birds that  cannot lake their places should be removed for the others to-bring the better results possible with them.  Improvement   sometimes     involves  the introduction  of some good blood  froni". some reliable  breeder.  He  also  is working down his: flock Lo the best  working  units  for  his  next  season's  efforts and it pays well to secure what  may be wanted .as early as possible. It  usually means a little better selection.  If it is possible "forgive the "breeder a  good idea of what is needed in birds,  he   can   do  better   for  while   a  bird  might be better perhaps than another  one of the same breed, this bird might  be the best breeder to use in another  flock on account of his being strong in  points   where   the   other     flock   was  lacking.     Naturally -when   a   breeder  gets an order for a bird at a price  he sends the best value he can for the  price paid and if he only had a little  information   might have sent a mere  useful  bird strong in  his  customer's  requirements.    Every time the buyer  takes the breeder fully into his confidence he should be the gainer by it for  nrod'n'p3   the breeder shipping birds as he does  i��������� ������������������.���������   wants to please every buyer and he  Mr own     ��������� ...   ..,���������     v.���������xt���������..   ,.;,   -���������_,u,,���������   A.,���������t  should not swallow it. as it is almosL  sure to create disease. On the other  hand Ihe cows do not enjoy being-  driven about by the horses; who are  nearly always "bossy," and do not allow the cows a chance to eat as they  ought.  The Saskatchewan Yield  Wheat  Crop  Any .  In a   final  DANGER  SIGNALS.  No engineer would be mad enough io  run by the flag which signaled danger.  What the clanger was he might notumder-  Btand, but he would take no chances.  It is different with the average man or  woman. They al-  lempt constantly  to run by the danger signals of  nature and that  a 11 e in p t cost s  thousands of lives  >very year. When the  appetite becomes irregular or entirely gives out,  when pleep is troubled  and broken, when there  is a loss of flesh, when  then; is a constant feeling of dullness and languor, nature is hoisting  the clanger signal. The  Ktomaeh and its allied  organs are failing iu their  work and (he body is losing the nutrition on which  its strength depends.  Such a condition calls  for the prompt use of Dr.  Pierre's Golden Medical  Discovery.  It is the world's proved  blood purifier. It's not  a secret remedy for its  ingredients arc printed on the wrapper.  .Start to take il to-day .and before another  day lias passed, the impurities of the  blood will begin lo leave your body  through the liver, kidneys, bowels ana  fckin, and in a few days you will know  by your steadier nerves, firmer etcp,  keener mind, brighter eyes and cleaver  skin that the bad blood is passing out  im.d new, rich, pure blood .,i filling your  arteries. The same good blood will cause  pimples, acne, eczema nnd all akin eruptions to dry up and disappear. It's a  tonic and body builder, (let it to-day in  either liquid or (ablet form or write Dr.  Pierce, Invalids' Hotel, Buffalo, X. Y., for  free medical wlvico.  W. N.  U.  1084  e  can do this better by sending just  what the buyer needs than by any  other method. His best advertising  is in satisfying his customers.    '  Perliaps-.the objective may be some  show that means the chicks must be  got out earlier than they have the past  years. Getting'the breeders into first  class condition so they can produce  fertile hatcliable. eggs wiLh lots of  kick in Lhetn will be a big" factor and  this must be giving attention quite a  long time before the eggs are needed.  Green food and fresh air play such a  big part in this that it might not be  out of place to point out that they  must be both provided for liberally  if results are to be obtained. Equipment of the best kind is desirable, but  if the breeders are not right the"best  equipment in the world will never produce what the breeder is looking for.  We might go on and enumerate a  number of things that anyone who  will consider the matter' seriously  could not help but think particularly bear on their own particular  case. . The reason why so many keep  right "on making the same mistakes and  getting the same unsatisfactory results  year after year is because they do ���������not  really try to figure out cause and effect as they could see it in their own  individual cases and which they could  remedy better than anyone could suggest. If anyone who is really trying  to make for improvement will honestly think the matter out, plan so far  as they can and try to outline their  work we feel sure it will develop a  system that will be bound to help before the season is through.

JOSEPH MAW a CO..   LIM1TEO.   WINNIPEG  Of  Work   Horses  Entitled  to  a   Shar  the  Best the  Farm  Affords  Too often the faithful old farm  horse is neglected and not allowed  his rightful share of the grain and  hay. Of course, it is right to suppose that the horses should be wintered as cheaply as possible, but it  should be remembered that ha is entitled to a share of the b_est the farm  affords; to keep up his health and  strength, and a comfortable shelter  from the cold a-nd wet of the reason.  Oat straw in small proportions with  timothy hay nnd oats is all right for  the horse when not worked, but the  horse which is asked to do a day's  ���������>vork needs just as much consideration in wintM as in the months while  it is worke-1 in the held. Clover hay  whicli is free from mold and dust is  the best and most digestible thing  for the horse.  The horr-e enjoys a change of food  and should have it now and then. A  hot bran mash and a few sliced potatoes vvill be appreciated.  Brood mares do well on a ration  of oat straw and corn stalks to pick  at between meals. They should also  receive a liberal feed of grain. A  brood mare needs exercise in Ihe  open air every day as do all the  horses, and it, is a good plan to turn  them in a small yard and give them  a few stalks to pick over; it. will  take up their attention nnd they  will feel the col '. less. Morses should  never be allowed to eat. from ihe  straw stacks with the cows, as it is  not ^'ood for either the cows or  horses. Cattle often have bad colds,  and the discharge from their nostrils  is    m ught    in    the    straw.    Horses  "The truest philosopher," says Jerome K. Jerome, "1 ever heard of was  a woman.

How Turkey Entered War  "It will ��������������� remembered that Turkey got into the war by one of her  battle cruisers firing on a Russian  ��������� port . in the Black Sea," says Mr.  Bouck White, who - has lately returned from Constantinople. "The  Turkish minister of marine, a Young  Turk, of prominence, was in a club in  Constantinople playing cards. A mes-  seuger entered, and told him that one  of the boats in his navy had tired on  the Russians, thus creating a casus  belli. The face of the minister went  "white. -"I didn't know anything about  it!" he gasped out; "i didn't know  anything about it." Enver, thr_j war  minister, at the behest of his German  owners, had forced the issue over the  heads, of fellow members in his own  -cabinet and to their entire ignorance."  Minard's Liniment Cures Garget in  Cows.  Better to Have Rich Cream  Cream for butter making should  be rich. If the cream separator can  be "brought to skim only a rich cream,  and to skim it closely, there is a lot  of saving effected. It takes less room  in shipping and there is less weight  to be handled per pound of butter resulting from it. If it is sent to the  creamery there is so much more milk  to be fed at home. It costs loss per  hundredweight of butter "to churn  thick cream, it costs less to pasteurize it. less ice to cool it, while some  butter makers express the conviction  that thick cream keeps better, that  there is less loss of butterfat, and  that the grade of butter made from  it will be better than that made from  a thin cream of a similar quality.  W. N. U. 1084  Clean  Milk Wanted  The sediment test is the best method of detecting dirt in milk. This  test should he used wherever milk  is sold. Ic shows the dairyman the  degree of cleanliness of his- milk.  ��������� ' In order that as little dirt as possible may adhere to the cows, their  udders, flanks and tails should be  kept clipped; all loose dust can then  be easily brushed off with a damp  cloth before .milking. Never should  anyone be allowed to milk wet, as it  is a filthy exercise.  From tests with open and covered  pails it has been found that a covered pail closed about two-thirds  with a hood will keep out at least  75.per cent, of the dirt. These pails  are just as convenient; to use as the  ordinary ones and cost little more.  A strainer will not take out the  fine sediment in milk, but is useful  for taking out hair and other large  foreign stuff, and also serves for detecting" the dirty milker. ITuck  towelling makes a very good strainer  cloth. All cans and utensils should,  bo washed and scalded every time  used and given their daily sun bath  to keep them sweet.  Producers and consumers should  co-operate and see that a premium is  paid to those that produce clean milk.  Exhausted From Asthma. Many who  rea:'. these Wv'rds know the terrible  drain upon health and strength, which  comes in the train of asthmatic  troubles. Many tlo not realize, how-  over, that there in one true remedy  which will surely stop this drain. Dr.  .1. D. Kellogg's Asthma Remedy is a  wonderful check to this enervating ailment.

McRae, Canadian remount commissioner, who is now in  camp at Shorncliffe, states that the  western prairie horses are ahead of  all others he has seen in hmgland. Tlo  has seen the mounts bought in the  United States, Argentine, Australia,  and New Zealand, but those from  Western Canada top the list. Thoy  arc well shouldered up and are being  selected for officers' mounts and chief  positions. The heavy horses also- are  giving splendid service in transport  work and have made a name for themselves.  Agricultural Education  Need of Professional Training For  Teachers of Agriculture  At recent conferences of agricultural education men from various departments of education, the necessity,  of professional training in education  for instructors of agriculture in colleges and high schools has been emphasized. At a meeting recently held  at Columbus, Ohio, under the auspices  of the U.S. office of experiment stations, ic was resolved that the -minimum "-requirement of such training  for teachers of agriculture' in secondary schools should be ten per cent, of  the total credit hours for graduation  from a standard agricultural college  or its' equivalent. This means the  passing of tho day when an agricultural teacher need be merely a graduate from a farmer's course in an  agricultural college. The teacher of  agricutltire in both college and high  schools needs lo have a general training, a scientific or technical training,  and a professional training. The numerous tailures ot" agricultural college  graduates as teachers in the secondary schools, also in colleges, is rapidly forcing the issue. The necessity  for pedagogical training is being re-.'-'  cognized by those who are in a position ��������� 16'note ' the successes and the  failures of young teachers who have  had the threefold training above indicated, and oi: those who have not  had such training.���������Rural Educator.

One letter dated September 2-1, reporting the capture of a French  trench says: "We made no prisoners.  One has got to ^nish oft this vermin  once and for all."  The second letter, written five days  later, and announcing the assault of J  another French trench, says: "We  took no prisoners; we bayonetted the  lot. I showed no mercy. These filthy  French must be stamped out. They  must either sign peace or all be  killed."  The Weakening Enemy  ���������-.

One new  force of energy and one only, has  the enemy any prospect of tapping,  and that is the having upon his side  forces hitherto neutral such as Bulgaria.     .'..'..-.'.

Nerviline Has Never Failed  To Cure  Cost of Horse Labor  The annual cost of keeping a horse  was found to be $90.40 in one county  in Minnesota, ?S7 in another and  $75.07 in a third. These figures are  averages for the. y'e-i.rs 1904-1907. In  the first county these charges were  a3 folows: Interest ,on investment,  $5.54; depreciation, $5.5G; harness  /lepreciation, $2.10; shoeing, $1.22;  feed, $63.49; labor, $11.18, and miscellaneous, 40 Scents, making a total  of $90.40.

The Condition of Too Many
Women and Too Many
. Too    many ' women,   and too many
girls look old long before tuey should.
l heir faces become' paie unci drawn;
wrinkles  appear and  their  eyes  lack
brightness.    Can this be wondered at
when they so frequent)/ have head-
. aches, backaches and a general feel-
; ing of wretchedness and" weakness?
! In most cases it is the blood that is to
blame. From one cause or another the
blood has become thin and watery and
it is a-fact    that anaemia (bloodless--
ness)      more   than   any  other  cause,
gives    women their prematurely aged
apjpearance.    It is- important that the
bltfod supply of girls and  women  be
regularly   replenished���important   not
only on the score of looks, but to restore robust health, which is of greater value.   Dv. Williams' Pink Pills ac-
ually make new blood and restore the
system shattered by overwork or worry.   -These pills give a glow of health
to pale  faces and  make tired,  weary
women and girls feel bright and happy.    With Dr. Williams' Pink Pills at
hand there is no need for any woman
or any girl to look ill or feel ill. Mrs.
J.  McDonald, jr.,  I lay, Ont., says:   "I
honestly   believe   Dr. "Williams'   Pink
Pills saved my life.    Some years ago
I had anaemia, and as I did not realize   the. seriousness   of the   trouble  I
soon became a complete wreck. I got
so weak I could hardly walk. I neither
ate nor slept well, and could not go
upstairs without stopping to  rest. At
times i had an almott unbearable pain
in my back and wouid have to i-i-main
in bed.    1 suffered  almost constantly
from    a    dull    headache,    and  when
sweeping if I  would stoop to. pick up
anything T  would get so dizzy that I
would    have    to catch  hold of something to keep from  tailing. At  times
my  heart   would   beat  so  fast  that  1
would   have   a   smothering   sensation.
My 'eyes were sunken and  iv,y hands
and   limbs, would   be   swollen   in   the
mornings. ' I   tried   several   kinds   of
medicine     without     benefit    and   my
friends  thought  I   would not  recover.
Then   I   began   taking    Dr.   Williams'
Pink  Pills, and before long could  see
ami  feci  that,  thoy  were helping  me.
[   gladly    continued     the   use  of  the
pills until I was completely cured and
'[  cannot, say enough  in their praise,
and [ strongly recommend them to all
run-down girls and women."

GHASTLY SCENES ENACTED BY HEARTLESS TURKS  Portable Houses  For the French  Viscount  Bryce   Makes Public the Details of Further Massacres^  of  the   Hapless  Armenians, Which,   he says, Surpass in  Horror What Has Been Previously Published  . Vis-count Bryce has niiule public the  details of further Armenian massacres  which, in a lerter accompanying them,  he says "surpass in horror, if that  were possible, what has been published already.  "I feel," his-letter continues, "that  ��������� eucli crimes ought lo be exposed ;to  the utmost, and that the charity of  other nations will more than ever be  drawn to the unhappy refugees  when it is known what their friends  and fellow countrymen have suffered."  Viscount Bryce says the details  confirm and amplify the ghastly  history of deportations by which  Armenians in iforthern and. eastern  Anatolia were driven to a death of  fiendish cruelty. The first part of  the evidence, he says, was received  by the committee of enquiry in the  United States, and the second part  comes from an Armenian gentleman  at Tiflis, who received it from refugees whore the events happened.  "The sufferers of the peasants and  mountaineers in the region of Van,  Mush and Sanuni,"��������� Viscount Bryce  eays, "seem to have been more terrible than were, those of the peaceful  townfolk, described in part one of the  report. Every successive piece of  evidence increases the horror of the  story and confirms tho d'-eadful certainty of its truth."  After giving part of the evidence  received from the "United States,  Viscount Bryce says that the following extracts were taken from his  correspondent at Tiflis:  "Toward the end of May Djevdet  Bey, the military governor, was expelled from Van. ��������������������������� Djevet fled south  wards and entered Sairt,' with some  8.000 soldiers, whom he called 'butcher battalions.' He massacred most  of the Christians of SJTirt, .the details,  of which, nothing- is known. On the  best of authority, however, it is reported that he ordered his soldiers to  burn in the public squares the Armenian bishop, Eglise Vartarved, and the  Chaldean bishop,  Addai  Shor.  "On June 25 the Turks surrounded  the town of Bitlis and cut its communication with neighoring 'Armenian villages. Then most of the. able-  bodied men ; were taken away from  their women by domiciliary visits.  During "the following few days all the  men under arrest were shot outside  the town, and buried in deep trenches  dug by the victims themselves. The  young men and children were distributed among the niLlge. The remainder, 'the useless lot,' were  driven to the south,, and are believed  to have been drowned in the Tigris.  "It is in such a fashion that the  Turks disposed of about 15,000- Armenians at Bitlis. At Mush, early in  July, the authorities demanded arms  from the Armenians, and a large sum  in ransom of notables of the town.  The head men    of    the village were  subjected to revolting tortures. Their  finger nails and then their foe nails  were forcibly extracted; teeth were  knocked out, and jn some cases noses  were whittled down, the victims  thus being done to death lindar  shocking lingering agony.  "The female relatives of the victims who came to their rescue were  assaulted in public, before the very  eyes of their mutilated men. The  shrieks and death cries of. the victims filled the air, yet they did not  move the Turkish hearts. '  ' "In the. town ot Mush itself the  Armenians, under the leadership of  Gotoyan and others, entrenched  themselves in churches, and stone-  built nonces, and fought for four  days in self defer.se, but Turkish  artillery, manned by German officers,  made short work' of: all the Armenian  positions, and every one of the Armenian leaders, as /well" as .their'  men, were killed in the fighting.  "The ghastly scenes which followed may seem incredible, yet these  reports have been confirmed beyond  all doubt. The shortest means employed; for disposing of the women  and children in the various "camps  was by burning. Fire was set to -tiie  large wooden: sheds : in-Alija'n,-.-' Mo-  grakom, and other Armenian villages,  and the absolutely helpless women  and children were roasted to death.  "Many women went mad and threw  away their children. Some women  knelt down and prayed, amid the  flames which ' were burning their  bodies. Other shrieked for . help,  which came from nowhere, and the.  executioners, who seemed unmoved  by this unparalleled savagery,,  grasped infants by one leg and hiijrl-  ed them into the* fire callingrout to  the burning mothers, 'Here are your  lions.'  "Turkish prisoners, who- apparently witnessed some of tliese scenes,  were horrified and maddened at remembering the sight. The odor of  burning'flesh, they say, permeate:  the air for many days. / ,  "In the. hilly country of Sasun the  surviving warriors found themselves  surrounded  at close  quarters  by 30,  .OO.O.-.Xurks,and Kurds. Then followed  one of those desperate heroic  struggles for life which-have always  been the pride of .the mountaineers,  Men, women and ' children fought  with knives, scythes, stones, and  anything else they could handle.  Thoy rolled blocks of stone down the  steep slopes, killing many of their  enemies. In the frightful hand-to-  hand combats, women were seen  thrusting their knives into the throats  of Turks.  "When every warrior had fallen,  several of the younger women, who  were, is danger of falling into the  hands of the Turks, threw themselves  from the rocks, some of them with  infants in their arms."  Circular Sent to all Lumbermen, Mills  and Factories in Ontario  To present to the French government a number of portable houses as  a gift, in order to relieve French people who have been driven out of their  homes and deprived of most of their  property during the advance of the |  German armies ��������� towards Paris last r A-Iarchin^  year, is the suggestion of a committee  formed and operating to help the people.' In tho portion which lies this  side of the present line of the armies  large dislricts thus ravaged are being  reinhabitcd by their peoplo, who are  under conditions of great privation  and  distress.  . Hon. G. Howard; Ferguson, minister  of lands, forests and mines, for Ontario, has sent a circular on the sub-.  ject to lumberman, mills and factories  in the province. In the course of the  communication he says:  "A gift from the great lumber provinces in the shape of a number of  these, houses labelled as a gift of  Canada and denoting the province  from which they come, would serve  not only insofar as their number was  concerned, to-meet the wants of the  people but would stand as a very excellent advertisement of what could  be done in this direction and the cost  at which it could be done.  "The factory people are, T believe,;  prepared to make a very large number of these and to send representatives to Belgium and France at the  proper time, to undertake business negotiations. Could not this government, the lumber mills and factories  unite in making a presentation of a  certain number of these houses in  knockdown condition, the factory men  putting the .final processes on the  lumber cut to dimensions, the lumber  mills providing as their part the lumber necessary, and the government of  the province, say, undertaking- the  cost of transport either to the port  of shipment or to the port of destination. '.' . ��������� '   '-'���������  It.is-pointed out these houses should  be on hand for early spring of next  year.  THE BRITISH ADVANCE ON BAGDAD  Through   the   Land of Adam and Noah to the Ancient  City of Bagdad, There Could be no More Striking Episode  in the Conflict Beyond Europe  Providing for the  Maimed Soldiers  Canadians'-to be Placed in Institutions  .to Receive the  Best Treatment  Soldiers  returning from  the front,  according to the plans of the hospitals  commission,  will  not be  sent home,  but will be placed in, the convalescent  institutions provided for/the purpose.  Since   the   influx   of  disabled  men  began,  it has been  found  that their  tendency is against going into homes.  They wish-to go to their own people.  The homecoming celebrations do not  always stimulate their recovery.  In view of the fact that the government will have to pay these men  a pension in permanency, the commission proposes to exercise its auth-  orifv and in all serious cases place  them in institutions where they may  be properly and scientifically cared  for and their condition ameliorated.  This, it is felt, is particularly desirable because of the fact that the  pension is to be based upon the nature and extent of the permanent injury.  By way of overcoming another  complaint it has been decided that  the pay of an invalided man shall  nor. cease when he reaches Canada,  but shall be continued until such  time  as  his  pension  begins.  German Gas Machine Gun  Its   Use  Upon,  in   War   Was   Decided  Some  Years  Ago  Among other valuable and curious  things captured from the Germans  during a recent retreat was the  paraphernalia of an ambulance.  A complete post was taken, including doctors, nurses, and apparatus. The most interesting object of  all is-a machine for curing sufferers  from gas poisoning.  It consists of a cylinder with two  compartments, one containing oxygen, the other an alkaline substance  now being analyzed. Full instructions for its use were found, and  the French greatly admired the technical perfection both of this machine  and of tho great .'upply of surgical  instruments. But the most significant, detail was an  cylinder itself.

Germany defended  the war by saying that, it was necessary to extend its Kultur to all the  world. At first it was assumed that  Kultur was identical with culture, and  many who admired German literature  and scholarship were quite prepared  to admit that the spread of German  culture to all peoples might be a good  thing. But it is only now beginning  to be understood that Kultur does not  mean culture, but the distinctive German spirit and methods of life. It  means the death of democracy and  the extension of governmental control  to the minutest features of social life.  It means, the abolition of private  choice and initiative, and the subjection of all personal aims to participation in a national purpose and the  means of executing it. It means that  order-'of things which has made Germany the best prepared military nation" in the world and enabled the  German government to include all the  private resources of the nation in its  military operations. German Kultur,  as now explained, has no place for  free will except the will to conform  to the spirit, and methods of the  state.���������Prof. W. H. Allison in New  York Times.  We learned recently (he surprising  news that a mixed British and Indian  force was within a hundred miles of  Bagdad. Should out- troops reach  their goal, they will have performed  one of the most dramatic exploits in  the history of war. They.������������������will have  inarched over 400 miles from the Persian Gulf, throughout the lands of  Adam'and of Noah, to seize the place  which' even the Turks still call "the  glorious city." Unless the allies take  Jerusalem, there could be no more  striking- episode in the conflict beyond  Europe.  The-operations which have thus  developed began modestly enough last  November with a joint naval and military advance from the head of "the  Persian Gulf up the Shatt-al-Arab. the  river formed by the confluence of the  Tigris and Euphrates. After one important action the expedition reached  Bussorah, sixty miles from the sea,  and, perhaps the oldest seaport in  Asia.    '  From the quays of Bussorah daring  Arab navigators?sailed many centuries  ago and sacked Canton, in the days  when Arabia held the secret of the  sea. .. -. /  ���������,,-  It was the port; whence Sindbad the  Sailor, whose chronicles are plainly  the exaggerated record of many genuine "voyages, roved the eastern seas.  Nelson himself has left on record that  he visited Bussorah as a lad in the  "Seahorse." Yet though the ' East  Indian Company had warehouses  there, never before has the port flown  an European  flag.      ���������-.-.,  The British chased    the Turks fifty  miles farther up   the river to Kurna.  One column went up the River Karun  into Persian territory to save ihe admiralty oil pipe line.   Another has recently pushed its   way for a hundred  miles   through   the   swamps   and   lagoons formed  by the old .channel 'of  the Euphrates, and shattered a large  Turkish  force  at Nasiriyeh.    A third  column has steadily advanced up the  Tigris,  and  is  now  at  Kut-el-Amara,  only 100  miles  from Bagdad by land  though   200   miles,    by   the. winding!  course of. the jiver.

It  should soon be tramping through the  desolate ruins of Seleucia, where once  the Greeks ruled over a million souls.  Its footsteps will ring within the gigantic vaulted hall of Ctesiphon, the  last relic of the winter palace of the  Parthian kings.  And then at last, if all goes well the  expedition will sight the gilded dome  and minarets of the mosque of Kasi-  niin, and all the flat roofed houses of  Bagdad, standing amid groves of date-  palms and orange trees. From the  first chapter of the Book of Genesis  it will pass.-: at a stride to the very  heart of the '"Arabian Nights," and  sweep through the shady bazaars  where Haroun al-Raschid loved to  roam.  The fall of Bagdad owuld resound  more loudly throughout the east than  all the battles fought between Warsaw and Ostend. Bagdad was once, in  the eyes of all Asia, the most splendid  city in the world, it was the home of  the Caliphate, the centre of Islam, the  abode of Moslem literature and art  and;science, a capital which is said to  have had a population of two millions.  Tradition survives decay in Asia far  more than in Europe, and though tho  Bagdad of today has shrunk to a piace  sheltering about 120.0'00 people, it still  has a fame and a prestige surpassing  Delhi or Peking. It is incomparably  older than any city in India or China,  it is mentioned in the records of As-  surbanipal and Tiglalh-Pileser, and on  one of its quays may still be traced an  inscription of Nebuchadnezzar, King  of Babylon.  Let it never   be   forgotten that wo  British were in the Persian Gulf, and  thus on  the border of these ancient  lands, before the Turks.    Though the  Turks extended their rule long ago to  ihe borders of Mesopotamia, they are  comparatively newcomers in Chaldea.  They took Bagdad less lian three hundred years ago. They have never really conquered    the Lower Tigris    and  Euphrates.   Below Bagdad   they have  been   taxgathers    and  sentinels   ami  nothing more.   There have never been  many Turks in either Bagdad or Bussorah, save soldiers and a fe^y officials.

Were Inspired by Their Captain's Gallantry  Among the many galiant deeds of  this world war none stand out more  prominently than the charge, led by  Captain Langdale, against the Ilonen-  zollern Redoubt. The men were ranged in the trench to his right and to his  left all ready and waiting for the  word to leap up the parapet and rush  through a hundred yards of German  machine gun fire and rifle fire. Capt.  Langdale inspired every soldier in  sight by quietly sitting on a camp  stool smoking a pipe as though nothing of moment was about to occur.  Once he relit the pipe and took a few  puffs. Then, rising with a shout, he  yelled, "Come on, Leicpstershires!" as  he leaped over the parapet, while all  his men dashed after him. Within a  rush of twenty yards they met the  storm, which decimated but did not  check llieui. When they were half  way to the goal tho German lire partly  ceased, and they could be seen retreating lo their further line. Still  the central figure, well ahead, kept  yelling his encouragement. Then  came a mad rush for the captured  trench. Many failed to reach it. and  those that did found their gallant  leader missing, lie was among the  dead  some thirty yards .behind.
