Bickerton,  Bontnron, Manly, McCallum and  Smith were present At the regular  meeting of the city council on Monday evening.  A letter from the executive of  the Union of B. C. Municipalities,  regarding a proposed change in the  statutes whereby municipalities  would be empowered to issue cer-  - tificates for delinquent taxes, was received and o-idered filed.  A communication from the sec  re tary of the school board stated  that the term of office of two of the  trustees would expire with the present year. The vacancies to be filled  would both be for a term of two  years.  The city'clerk made a report regarding the sale ot city lots to J  McNevin  A number of accounts were ordered to be paid.  All the aldermen and the the city  clerk heartily thanked the mayor for  tbe presentation of Christmas tur  keys. Mayor Gaw stated that it  ~ bad^given.him a great deal of pleas  TUre'^oMnake the presentations^)  the a'jcuibers; -of .the:cpuncil,'as-.a  mark of ftie'respect" ".he^entekained  Aid. Bonthrori favored one polling  place in a more central locution  than the city hall. Aid McCallum  said he had also been requested by  the people of the West ward to endeavor to secure a polling place in  the ward. The absence of one was  especially inconvenient to the railway employees, who did not have  the time to go down to the city hall  to vote. He suggested that a second  poll be held in the West ward fire  hall. Aid. Manly and Aid. Smith*  offered no serious objections to this,  but they thought a large number of  voters in the West ward would be  inconvenienced by having to go to  the fire hall to vote. The matter  was finally disposed of by the coun  cil deciding to have but one polling  place, and that it be held in the  basement of the public school building. John A. Hutton wa> appoint  eel returning officer, and J. B Tut  tie, Win Frakes, P. H. Donaldson,  Leo Mader and T. A. Wright were  named'aa deputies  At a Liberal convention in  Vancouver Tuesday night M.  A. Macdonald, president of  the Provincial Liberal association of British Columbia,  was given the unanimous  nomination to oppose Hon. C.  E. Tisdall, who has been appointed minister of works in  the Bowser cabinet.  The probability is that Hon.  Lome A. Campbell, appointed  minister of mines, will be opposed by Mayor Willson, of  Rossland,' That H. C. Brewster, leader of the Libera?  party in the province, ".will-be  the, nominee-to-oppose A. C.  Flumerfslt, who has been  given the post of finance minister, is a foregone conclusion.

The chaiiman of   the health   and  relief  committee   reported   that the  relief work of the city had   not   in  creased since the last meeting.  The   chairman of  the   water and  light   committee   stated   that   there  had been no expenditures in  his de  partment during   the past year that  could  possibly   have   been avoided.  He advocated linking up  the  water  connection on Water.street   between  the Great Northern'station and   Mr.  Campbell's  lesidcnce, as the   main  on Winnipeg   avenue   was showing  evidences ot weakness in   spots     If  an   accident   should   occur   to the  Winnipeg avenue   pipe, the   peop'e  of the entire West end   would   have  their water supply for domestic use  and   fire   protection.    The pipe for  the Water street connection   should  be ordered now for  April   delivery;  and, as very little money   had   been  expended   on   the electrical system  during  the year,   it would  also be  advisable to order some supplies for  .this branch of his department.  On motion of Aid. McCallum and  Manly, the clerk was empowered to  order for spring delivery enough  4-inch pipe to make the connection  in the water system on Water street  between the East and Went wards,  and also to purchase the required  electrical supplies.  Aid. Bickerton asked what the additional expense would be having  two polling places instead of one in  the forthcoming municipal election.  "Christmas in India and Some,Byproducts of the Gospef There" was the'  theme "of }ah.

From her   seven   years'  experience among the Telugus of  India arid as the    head   of    the   llatna-  chandrapuram high  cast girls' .school,  and   assoc ated    with    Miss Hatch in  her leper  hospital   and   other   work,  Miss   Jones   had   many    interesting  things to tell.     "What is the secret of  India's splendid loyalty to the British  m   the   present .struggle?" she asked.  ���������'Is   it   tho   presence  of   the soldiers  among the people? No.  Rather Of the  soldiers of Christ and of    their   evan  gelistic,    educational,    medical     and  other   missionary    work.    There has  been the abolition of   the cruel   practice in which  till widows were burned  alive   with    the   bodies of   their husbands, and of widow slavery, and the  rapid improvement  of   the   marriage  laws and customs.    Wandering at will  over the country were -50,000 lepers,  concealing their scourge, yet   corrupting the people.     Now there are about  fifty   asylums   and    hospitals   where  these   sufferers  freely   receive skilled  treatment and loving Christian care "  Christmas,    birthday   and     marriage  celebrations   and   customs   in   India  were   compared   with    those   of   our  land.     Miss   Jones   left   on Monday  for Vancouver, whrre   she,    in   company with Rev.   VV.   S.   Tedford   and  Dr. Hulet,   will   take passage for India on the Empress of Japan.  BUD OFT  vice be resumed is evidence of this.  Specimens of ore were collected by  the board and sent to the Panama-  Pacific exposition. Owing to the  efforts of the board the evaporating  plant was induced to start work  here, whereby the ranchers have  beenp able, to dispose of some 2000  tons of potatoes and other vegeta  bles, and many of them have obtained daily work at the evaporating  plant. I think your readers will  agree with me that this is a most  creditable showing, considering the  lack of interest shown in and the  small financial support given to the  Grand Forks board" of trade. An  other disheartening fact is that only  one rancher in tbe valley was a  member of the board of trade last  year; yet the work done by the  board has been for the benefit of the  rancher in many cases.1 'I trust that  ihe coming year may see a more  generous support ace >rd"d to this  boa id ���������F.

The apathy"Tof-iha'ny -of- the  business  and " professional   men  ot  the city, and-of the ranchers of   the  valley,   towards   the   work  of   the  board of trade is extremely  discour  aging to thotje   who are doing what  they can for the benefit of   the city  and the surrounding country.    Permit   me  to   state   briefly   what   the  board has done during the past year;  and I think that alter reading  these  few   lacts   you   will    feel   that the  Grand Forks board ot   trade is   de  serving ot more   encouragmem   and  support than it has   received during  the past year.    Rural   tree delivery  wa0   taken   up   with   the pot-t office  officials   in    1914, and is an accomplished fact in 1915.     In .1914   Mr.  Rive, chief dairy   instructor  of   the  provincial government, was. invited  here   by   the   board, and he   gave a  most interesting and  instructive ad  dress,    in   the   boardrooms, ������hioh  was   listened   to   by   many of   the  ranchers of tbe   valley   and   others.  The   matter  of  .slocking the North  Fork and Christina lake   with   trout  was taken up by the board with the  paovineial fisheries department, and  in consequence   many   thousands of  fry   and     fingerlings     have    been  planted   in   those   waters.    By the  efforts of the board a mining expert  was sent by the   provincial   government to report on the Franklin min  ing   camp.    The   reduction of   the  train service in   May, 1914, to three  trains   a   week each way was taken  up   with   the  C.P.

The next meeting will  he  held in  the boa id of   trade rooms on Satur  day, January 8, at 7 p.m.  An in teresting cantata with good  rnu.sic and dialogue was given by  the members of the Methodist Sunday school last night in the opera  house. It title, "Foxy Santa," had  been well chosen, his elusive personality escaping once again behind  a stuffed counterfeit of himself to  the delight of the orphans' home,  where the whole scene took place  He was ably assisted by Jack Frost,  the Snow Queen and her fairies,  Santa's military baud, Miss Mary  and her orphans, and six young  people who started the project in  order to give the orphans a happy  Christmas.     Fifteen   musical   num-  Although success had been confidently anticipated, the military concert promoted   by   the  officers  and  men of the local company of  Independent   Rifles   exceeded   expectations.    The opera house was crowded by the friends and   well   wishers  of the unit and to judge by the  demand lor encores, the audience  appeared to thoroughly enjoy the novel  "terms" figuring in the program."'*- \  The stage was made up  to  reprpr,  sent one of those camp scenes which  unfortunately   figure   largely  along  the whole front  of our Empire ''far  from battle line."    To the left of the  stage a tent was pitched iind around  it tbe men disported   themselves   in  true   army   style.    The   tableau   of  John  Bull���������H   A.

The  whole     concluded   with   a   tableau  representing "John Bull"   receiving  a tnetsage from the trenches for more  men and the Jatter's suggestion that  tne contents   be  communicated   to  the audience was   ably   acted   upon  by Capt.

He concluded his  re  marks by the recitation,   "'The   Cali  ot the Yukon,"   which   he   thought  might aptly be entitled '"The Call of  the War God."  *:...)������*-. *.*.,  >*-���������%������������������  Ernest Lane and family arrived  in the city yesterday from Coleman  for a two weeks' visit with friends.

When the business men and ..bankers returned after their trip they  were quite enthusiastic- over what  they had seen and were prepared to  put up some money for similar work  iu tiie Canadian west, particularly  in Manitoba.  They started to work out tho details of a plan whereby the business  interests would contribute large  sums for this purpose and theuvork  would be done in conjunction ���������with  the department of agriculture.- The  Manitoba government-however, when  approached, stated that they themselves had been studying this problem and had decided to'undertake;  practically the.-.same. work. As the  ultimate object of the business men's  proposition was to get the various  provincial governments to'take over  all the work, there was no use in  their interfering when they found  that the Manitoba government was  already prepared to do the same  work. In passing, it might be remarked that the Manitoba provincial  government lias proceeded to the extent of the appointment of five field  agents who are to be the inception  of a comprehensive system.  The  province of Saskatchewan  decided     to    adopt  tiie   North   Dakota  system,    with only such    changes as  would   be   necessary     to  meet   local  conditions,  and  they  are   proceeding  with the installation of a number of  Held agents, and they hope to extend  the    system as rapidly as good men  can  be  secured.    It means   that  the  provincial  government  of Saskatchewan is prepared to do all it possibly  can   to  stimulate  good   farming  and  bring practical methods of the same  home to the adult    farmers without  calling  on  the  business    community  for any    financial assistance.    There  is  nothing of the    nature of charity  or   spoon   feeding    about     the   Saskatchewan proposition, as before the  government    will    appoint    a    field  agent, the municipality, which is the  unit  through   which  this  work  is  to  be done, must first appropriate $1,200  a year    of its own funds to help in  meeting the expenses of the work. It  is figured that this will be about 50  per cent, of the first year's expenses.  It    is    a   fixed.sura," Ihe idea being  that    any    increases    of expenditure  from year to year will be met by the  province  rather  than  the  municipality,  though there must  be some future adjustment of this scheme-  Saskatchewan has put ten men into  as many municipalities this year and  next year hopes    to put 25 and the  third year 40 agents.    Of course, the  immediate  work of the agents  is  to  bring better farming methods to the  adult farmer, but it has been recognized  in North Dakota, and is being  recognized     in     Saskatchewan,   that,  after    all,    the  best  hope  of better  farming  methods  is  with   the   growing    boys    and   girls, and very much  of the time and attention of tho field  agents    will ���������   be    devoted    to  work  among the boys' and girls' clubs ana  the     getting  up   of  contests,   school  fairs and similar work.  It  is in  connection  with  this  part  of  the  work  that  the   Saskatchewan  government thought H well  to'enlist  a  little of the enthusiasm and desire  to   help   which  had  been   aroused   in  the  men  of tho  business  community  who made  the trip to North Dakota*.  The     province  of  Saskatchewan   felt  that,    having  provided    a  lirst-class ;  agricultural college where the tuition j  is almost free and board and lodging j  supplied    at    tho  actual  cost,    they j  could  not. ?:o  further, but  decided  to !  tjuict, until now.  complete and 29  are contributing  contribute $2,500  $4,000 the following  hips to bo competed  seeds,  seeds,  under  see what the business men were prepared to do in this matter. As early  as last .luno, Harry Thompson, chier  weed inspector, was sent to Winnipeg to interview the business men  and ask what they would be willing  to do in the way of subscribing  funds for a series of scholarships  which would bs offered to boys and  girls in Ihe municipalities "where  tlToro,,wer3 field agents appointed.  Almost the first place that Mr.  Thompson visited, was the Grain .Exchange, and ho found that it was not  necessary for him to go any furl her.  The scheme which he had outlined,  when looked over by one or two  prominent members of "the exchange,  appealed to them strongly, and they  undertook to raise the entire amount  required. They talked it over and  decided thai, the people who should  contribute for this work in Saskatchewan were the line elevator  companies with heart office.? at Winnipeg, who were operating lines of  country elevators in the province of  Saskatchewan.    The    whole    matter  ; for under Ihe  following rules:  !     1.

The first portion of the scholarship  will be available any time' within  four years from the first of December in the year in which it was won.  The person winning the scholarship  in a municipality will not be eligible  to again compete for the scholarship.  The general outline of the scholarship and the schools fair has met  with the generous approval of the  agricultural secretaries, whose work  was sufficiently in hand to warrant  them accepting the scholarship.

They  strengthen the young stomach against  biliousness and are tonical in their  effects where the child suffers from  loss of appetite, in feverish condi-  itions they will be found useful and  they will serve to allay pain and. griping in the stomach, from which children 'so often suffer.  The Pacific coast is honoring a new  record maker in the trapshooting field.  He is P. II. O'Brien, who, at a recent  tournament in Portland, Ore., his home  (own, shooting Nitro Club shells, broke  two hundred and forty targets consecutively, without a miss or "straight," as  they say at the traps. This score included the breaking of two hundred  "straight" and winning the regular program's main event. Mr. O'Brien's brilliant shooting sets a new mark for the  coast.  THE  HEART.  11  .S.;  J   Falconer;  Ewart,  Colon-  How It Acts In Everyday Life.  The human heart, in a "healthy man  weighs   but   eleven   ounces.    It   beats  from long before birth until death, in an  average   lifetime,   about   seven   million  times,   allowing   seventy   beats   to   the  minute.   Every  twenty-four'hours   I his.  slight  organ  performs -labor  equivalent  to lifting a ion of material eighty feet  into the air.    If the blood becomes poor,  and   filled   with"1 poisons   from   diseased  kidneys, the heart is not only starved,  but poisoned as well.   It soon becomes  exhausted and unable to meet any extraordinary demand which maybe made  upon, it.   Supply  pure  blood;  get  the  kidneys to -working; tone up the feeble  stomach!    Dr.  Pierce's Golden  Medical  Discovery purifies tho blood, relieves the  kidneys   and   tones   up   the  alimentary  canal.    Give the heart tho food it needs  and it will continue to work till the natural  end of life.  Berlin, Ont.���������"I have used Dr.  Pierce's medicines and found them to  give perfect satisfaction. I had a stroke  and got very bad. The doctor said I  had no blood, my heart got very weak.  I finally quit- the doctor and began taking  Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery  and Favorite Prescription. When I had  taken about five bottles,I commenced to  notice a marked improvement, and in  about one'year and ;i half I was alright,  could do my own work. I really think  these remedies saved my life as I was in  very bad condition.  "I have used 'Pleasant Pellets' iu my  home for several- years and have found  them to be good. We keep them in the  hou���������c all the time. I think I owe my  good health of to-day to Dr. Pierce's  medicine:;."���������Mrs. Hknrv ITarmer, 91  Victoria St.  - . 79I.9S5 1,053,342 .1,639,772  II. will be noticed by these figures  that the output for the live summer  months of 1915 shows a gain of 55 per  cent, over the same period of last  year and a gain of 107 per cent, over  the same period of 1913, which indicates a remarkably steady growth.  This butler has all found a ready  sale at figures considerably above the  market price, on account of its uniform quality and the excellent reputation gained for Saskatchewan government butter. Dairy Commission Wil-''  son r.eports that he'has lately been obliged to refuse several carload orders  as he is desirous of retaining a supply  to meet the local demand.- Thtsvwould  indicate that there is practically an  unlimited market for the right kind of  butter.  So much is said and written at this  time about ihe grain crop of the .province, that Ihe importance of the dairy  industry is liable to be overlooked. A  comparison of the |wo branches of  farming, however, shows that dairying  is making far more rapid gains than  is being made in grain crops. Statistics  show that the acreage in grain crops  (his vear amounted to .10,543,795 compared with 9,682,125 in 1913 and 9,-  912,464 acres in 1914, a percentage  gain of S-9 par cent, over 1913 and fi.3 j  per cent, over 1914, so gains of 55 per  cent, and 107 per cent, in dairy products   compares   very   favorably.  Applications for new creameries are  coming from all parts of the province,  so it would look as if the farmers are  beginning to realize that dairying is  the most stable and one of the most  profitable branch.es of farming possible.  Construction of Straw Sheds  Simple and Inexpensive  -A stable that will protect from,  cold weather and stor'ms may be constructed with little expense when  straw is plentiful, liach . cow, if to  be tied, needs about Jlfty square-  feet of iioor space to allow for manure, feed alley, place for her tc  stand, and room to got behind her  for milking, cleaning, etc. Young  stock will need about half as much  space. A. barn 16x90 feet or one  32x45, will furnish room enough fo;  twenty cows and l,e% head of young-  stock. A straw shed for cattle should  be seven or eight feet high. The  construction of such buildings is very  simple. Posts are usually set in the  ground eight to twelve feet apart,  and strong timbers put on top of  these with poles close enough together to carry the straw on top of  the timbers. Walls are constructed  by making two walls two or more  feel: apart, .-and packing with straw.  These walls may be made of poles,  boards or woven wire, as desired.  Hogs will require from -ten to fifteen square feet of floor space each  in a straw shed. Fifty hogs will require a shed about' 20x30 feet in  size.. It is better to keep the hogs in  a. separate building from the cattle.  The shed for hogs need not be. more  than four or iWe feet high. It is  advisable to ' make the walls tight,  using woven wire, or something  equally good, so the hogs will not  work out   through the wall.  For Belgian Relief  for  Finds Help in Lydia E.

Britain  Faces  Big Task of Caring  Them  During' the Winter  Inaugurating the committee of the  city of Loudon, which has been appointed to raise funds for the relief  of Belgium, the Lord Mayor announced that the British committee, had  raised ������5,000,000 ��������� with which the  American commission had purchased  food, distributing it among the Belgians who remained in that country.  Lord Curxon, who was one of' the  chief speakers, said that this money  had been exhausted and tnat it was  necessary to raise $4,250,000 monthly  to feed the people during the winter.  He pointed out that Germany was doing nothing for tho relief of the inhabitants of"tho devastated country,  and added: "If we win this war, and  we hope and trust we will, every penny of indemnity which may be exacted'-should be handed over to Belgium  .���������the recovery of the country."  Sir John Simon, secretary for  home affairs paid a tribute to the  American' commission of which Herbert (7- Hoover is chairman.

Information and Education  To appreciate what newspapers  mean to a country we have only to  look at Russia. Before the war tho  Russian people, taken as a mass, did  not read them. Now they are being  urged to start a state papi-r not only  to give the news, but as a "means of  popular education." People hero sometimes do not recognize that papers are  teaching them modern history, as well  as many others things.���������New York Tribune.  Minard's Liniment Co., Limited.

Cashing,  How French Artillery  Is Fed With Shells  One   Munition   Factory  Turns   Out  5,-  000   Shells   and   Many   Aerial  Motors a Day  The unremitting French artillery attack proceeding.along the whole front  is made possible by equally unremitting and  intensive  effort  in  the  production of projectiles   in works which  are   working     regularly     twenty-four  hours a day.  Ona of these great establishments ,  near Paris, visited by an Associated j  Press representative "by official per-j  mission, makes more than 5,000 shells i  and a number of aeroplane motors a !  day. T'.J*. works visited produced six |  hundred automobiles annually before!  the war. It was, like other modern j  industries, arranged so.that material!  taken in at one end followed a regular j  progression until it came out at the '  other a.-finished car. The order of'  operaiions was different^in shell mak-'  ing. so it was necessary to displace j  and rearrange five thousand macli- j  ines, install many new ones and, at '  the same time, find hands to replace  a  thousand  mechanics.  So  formidable  a   task   would   have!  seamed before the war to be the work j  of a year, but if was accomplished in '  a few weeks,    and    the works    were j  made  ready  to  turn  out daily thous-!  a.nds of parts of rifles and bayonets in  addition to high power (lying machine  motors and shells.   Tn a few days the  shell   production     will     have     been  doubled,  while   tho  living  corps  will  continue to receive a goodly number  oi' new  machines  monthly  from  this  factory.  Women, old, young and middle-aged,  are working there in the places of  husbands, fathers, sons and brothers  at the front- Projectiles and rifle  parts are given the precision of a  chronometer, and every operation is  supervised and the result verified before if goes on to the next hand.  The finished shell must not only  stand a high hydraulic pressure, but  it must give the proper ring. An expert in steel, isolated from the clang  and hum of the factory in an almost  hermetically-scaled hut, laps each  shell as it is sent into him on a little  trolley. Those which give out the  proper ring are sent on, while the  others go to the scrap heap. This is  the final trial before loading.  Shrapnel bullets arc placed in liiej  core ot the shell by young girls, \  whose work, is fully up to that of!  trained   arsenal   workers.  Of course, "Crown Brand" is your  favorite Table Syritp.

Local    Conservatives   pretended   to  be jubilant  when  the recent political shuffle was  made at Victoria.    Their joy  was short lived,however. They  are now beginning'to   realize  that   the late premier,    even  after squandering  the wealth  of British   Columbia,   had  a  few friends left in this part of  the  province,   while  no   one  appears  to  have  any use for  Mr.   Bowser.    Mr.   Bowser's  vascillating method   of handling   the    Doukhobor   problem has lost him  all  the supporters he may have had here.  London    reports    indicate  that   Hon.   J.  H.

It  is  an interesting speculation  as  to. what  eventualities  might  arise if the pension should not'  .prove satisfactory.    It  would  certainly be a novel  sight  to  see Sir Richard and  Premier  Bowser on  the same public  platform  as   bitter opponent,  yet such an event is  not improbable if Mr. Turner should  refuse to vacate his office.

In  fact it is yet a very common practice  and a very wasteful one.  It is an established fact that organic matter is essential for soil for-  tilily. No one disputes Ihe fact that  our prairie soils are already rich in  this essential hut iif many sections  thn soils would bo greatly benefited  by the addition of the fertilizing constituents which are present in the  straw.  Hopkins, of Illinois, gives the  value of <3\tt straw for inanurial purposes at $:;.���������0 per ton. Wheat straw  valued at $2.58 per ion. The same  relative comparison gives the value of  rcsii farm manure at $2.22 and barnyard manure at $2.iU per ton. Any  one who destroys a'ton of wheat or  oat straw, therefore1, destroys more  fertilizing elements than are contained  iu the average farm yard manure.  The best method of handling straw-  is to feed it lo stock and return the  manure to the land. Thus it serves  a double purpose���������fodder and manure. When fed to horses or cattle  on a maintenance ration or those  doing comparatively little work, oat  straw is condensed by. Hoard's  Dairyman to be from one-half to  two-thirds- the value of good clover  and timothy hay. The manure from  one tou of wheat straw is worth-  51.52 and that' from a Ion of oat  straw is worth ?2.,'!-l. Thus  wastefulness of burning straw is  dent.  Where sufficient live stock is not  kept, however, to use all of the straw  in this way,-the straw can be returned directly to tho laud. It may be  spread and plowed under or used as  a top dressing on grain or pasture.  the  evi-  A Prosperous Area  "We are in receipt of very favorable  advices from the southern interior of  this province. All over the Boundary,  Okanagan and Kootenay districts the  crops have been exceptionally good.  There is very great mining activity.  The demand from the prairies for lumber has led to the opening of numerous  logging camps, and the mills are all  starting, up. There arc no idle men,  but on. the contrary some of the mill-  men are complaining of a shortage of  labor- Our correspondent, who has  covered some hundreds of miles during  the past week or ten days, says, "It  looks tis if southern British Columbia  would have a splendid fall and winter."  ���������Victoria Colonist.

Saskatchewan Liv.c Stock Distribution  Under the Live Stock Purchase and  Sale Act, the provincial department  of agriculture of Saskatchewan distributed a total of 280 head of cattle  to farmers this summer. P."F. Bredt,  acting live stock commissioner, was in  charge of the buying. On account of  the advance in cheese prices it was  difficult to buy Holstein cattle iu Ontario at right prices, consequently  many head of Shorthorns were purchased at an average price of $85.  Ar. amendment to the above act  last spring made it possible for the  department to distribute bulls on a  quarter cash basis. As a result of this  about 70 bulls were distributed as  compared with 24 last year. A big  demand now prevails for bulls, and  these will possibly be purchased  throughout the west this winter.  Some of the districts receiving' cattle  this year were Kerrobert, Rush Lake.  Dobdon and Eldrod districts, north  of  Shcllbrook,   and  Wadena-  Their Strength is Taxed and  They are Victims of Weakness and Suffering  When there is a growing family -to  car��������� for and the mother falls ill it is  a serious matter.   Many mothers who  are on the go from morning to night,  whose   work, apparently, is never done,  try to disguise their suffering and keep  up an appearance of cheerfulness before their family.    Only    themselves  know how they are distressed by backaches   and headaches, dragging' down  pains   and' nervous   weakness;    how  their nights arc- often sleepless, and  they arise to a new day's work tired,  depressed and quite unrefreshed. Such  women should know that their sufferings are usually due to lack of good  nourishing blood    They should know  that the one thing they need above all  others to give them, new health and  strength, is rich,    red blood, and that  among    ail medicines    there1" is none  can equal Dr. "Williams' Pink Pills for  their    blood-making,    health-restoring  qualities.    Every    suffering    woman,  every woman with a home and family  to care for. should give these pills a  fair trial,  for  thoy  will keep her in  health and strength and    make    her  work easy.    Mrs. G- Strasser,   Acton  "West, One, says: "I am the mother of  three children, and after each birth I  became    terribly    run    down;  I  had  weak,   thin  blood,  always   felt  tired,  and unable to do my household ���������.work.  After  the   birth  of  my   third  child I  seemed to be worse, and was very badly run down.    1 was advised to take  Dr. Williams' Pink pills.    I found the  greatest benefit from    tho    pills and  soon gained my old lime strength.

' The Agricultural Commission  An order-in-council has been issued  hy\ Dominion commission .'to investigate agricultural problems. The personnel of this commission has not yet  been announced- This action of the  government is a result of the conference held in Winnipeg last November  between representatives of the western  grain growers and manufacturers, after which a joint. memorandum was  prepared asking for the appointment  of the commission. It is gratifying to  see that, not only have the manufac-"  turers and farmers decided to forget  their' differences, but that they have  also been.able to combine in advocating a common policy which is apparently s.ound enough to recommend itself to the Dominion government. This  much has been accomplished but the  ultimate benefit.which will be derived  will be determined by the character or  the men .who are appointed to the commission. We trust that these appointments will not be conferred as rewards  for professional politicians but will be  given to men who understand agricul-.  tural conditions and who. are. willing  to devote unlimited time and energy  to the problems before them.���������-Industrial Canada.

These are conservative minimum figures .compiled  from the best available data, and  made public '���������;. by; Brig.-Gen. Francis  Vinton Greene, U.S.A., retired, in an  address on the war, delivered before  the members of the New York State  Historical Association.  General Greene is an honor graduate of West Point of the class of  1870, and the author of many standard works on. military history. He:  gave his hearers the benefit lot what  ���������ne called an "intelligent guess" as to  the casualties of the war and submitted a table showing the increases  of the national indebtedness of the  European: belligerents. The increase  "over. 1914. approximately is $20,000,000,-  000. How much of this is war debt,  of course, is -problematical.''The-combined'.wealth1 of the allies 1s estimated  at 120-1,000,000,000, while that of the  Teutonic,allies, with Turke'v included,  is   estimated' at   ?108,000,000,000-  General Greene alps   discussed the,!  changes  in  the; art 'of warfare  that.  -have made the great struggle not only^J  the most frightful; but also the mos*t  interesting, from a military "'-point of  view,'   of any war in  history.    Incidentally, the   speaker   indicated what  iu his own opinion is required to make  comparatively recent years, almost as  much as from those of antiquity.  "The fabled stories of the countless  hordes who crossed the Hellespont  with Xerxes and Alexander have, been  far surpassed by the actual numbers  of the forces engaged in the present  conflict. The; figures are certainly  startling. In Europe 78 per cent, of  the population at war, in all the world  56 per cent, of the population, involved in the conflict; 13,000,000 men actually under arms; 2,000,000 killed,  nearly 4,000,000 wounded, more, than  2,000,000 prisoners. We cannot grasp  these-figures, but 'we can get some  idea of what they mean by comparing  them with the results of previous  wars. We were accustomed to speak  of our civil war as the greatest conflict of modern times, but apparently  it was only one-tenth of the magnitude of the present conflict.  "At no time did the number of men  actually, under arms, North and South,  exceed 1,300,000 men, and tho total  number of those killed in battle and  died of wounds on the Northern sido  was 110,070, and on the Southern side  probably not more than S0,000; so that  in four years of war then tho destruction of life Was less than one-tenth  ^of the destruction of life during a'little-. ���������  'more than one year at the present  time.

But- wo have grappled with the difficulty and we have  means for tracing submarines immediately they enter given areas, which  are among the most carefully guarded  secrets of the navy.  But what is common knowledge  among those acquainted with naval  work is,that we can trace a submarine  'travelling .under the water through a  curious ."formation of the wave it  creates on''the,surface. Our sailors are  now trained to- pick out this wave.  Even laymen in navigation will  readily understand that if there is a  large object tinder the water, approxi-  "The German'fleet is quite as effectively annihilated as if it were sunk.  It is powerless and useless. Consequently our country is repaid a hundredfold for its material sacrifices to  increase the strength of its navy."

This wave  is not easy- to pick out on a tumultuous sea, but we can do it, and, moreover, once we get on this wave there  is no difficulty in following it, for the  submarine is" constantly sendingup  little air bubbles.

German Bayonets'  Work  Crocker Land a Myth  McMillan Arctic Expedition Returning  to New York  Word has just been received by the  -American Museum of Natural History  that Donald B. McMillan and a party  of six explore rs, who left New York  in 1913 to explore and chart what was  supposed to bo Crocker Land, in the  .Arctic Ocean, were safe, and that the  relief ship Cluett, later sent with supplies to the McMillan party, reached  its destination.

Heart trouble and  rheumatic fever were moat frequently observed.  The average time elapsing between  the injury and (he first field dressing of the wound was about six and  a half hours. Thirty-five of the "1000  wounded were unfit ever to return to  duty, and those who did return were,  on an average, about twenty-three  days on sick leave.  Only three of the thousand died.  United States  In the present decade he said there  had occurred more important changes  in the art of warfare than in the previous fifty years, and in those fifty  years more than in the five preceding  centuries; in other words, since the  first use of-gunpowder iu'���������warfare.  What these changes in the art ot  warfare mean is learned by a study of  the tables of casualties, financial expenditure, etc-, compiled by General  Greene. One of these gives the population, based on official figures, of  the various countries concerned in tho  war. These figures are taken from  official reports. Summarized, they  show that on the side of the allies  there are in Europe 266,500,000 people  as compared with J22,200,000, population of the Teutonic nations and their  ally, Turkey. The colonies of the allies; have tt population of 472,500,000  people as compared with 32,800,000 in  the colonies that nowordid belong to  Germany, Austria and Turkey. The  total-population' upon which the allies  can" draw is 739,000,000 as compared  with 155,000,000 who owe allegiance  to Emperor William, Franz Josef or  the Sultan.  In his discussion of other phases ot  the war General Greene laid stress on  the important part played by the  aeroplane, the automobile, the submarine, and wireless telegraphy, which  are for the first time effectively useful  in warfare.  "We only dimly perceive, as yet,"  GeneralGreeue said, "the relation between these agencies and the stupendous scale of actual.. military operations. In the preceding fifty years the  railroad, the steamboat, the electric  telegraph, had first come into military  use, and had gradually reached their  complete perfection. It has often been  said that had these means been at the  disposal of Napoleon lie would have  conquered tiie world. This is mere  opinion and speculation, hut it is a  fact that the means of transportation  and of communicating intelligence  were substantially, the same in the  time of Napoleon as in the Lime of  Caesfi r.  "But from Napoleon's time *to the  present the art of war has benefitted  by all tiie wonderful improvements in  th-; mechanical arts and sciences: ail  of which are the servants of war as  well as of peace. 'Instantaneous communication of intelligence, marvellously rapid transportation of troops,  the ability to feed and supply unheard  he German armies fighting today in  Russia on the east and in France on  the west are more than six times as  large."  Referring to the war in the western  theatre, General Greene said that the  reports indicated that 2,500,000 a  side occupied the. trenches from the  sea to the Vosges, which meant 8,000  men to the mile or five to the yard,  more than the equivalent of a double-  rank formation, in close order, with  ���������'elbows touching, from end to end.  "Compared to these," remarked General Greene, "the celebrated lines of  Torres Vedras in Portugal and of  Petersburg in Virginia sink almost into  insignifiance. Imagine a continuous  line'.in-,double .-rank across the state  of New York from the Atlantic to  Lake Ontario."  General Greene then look up a discussion of the mariner in. which the  a.'mies are supplied with food and  rations, and the use of the motor  truck.  "It would :.cem,'' he said, "as if the  internal combustion engine as applied  to tiie automobile has almost revolutionized that branch of the military  science which has been called logistics.'  Taking up a study oT the economics  of the' war, General Greene said:  "The war is already long and the  end is no more in sight than it was a  year ago. The financial transactions  are on a scale even more stupendous  than the numbers of men engaged,  and the increase in national debts  fairly staggers the imagination. 'Approximately $20,000,000,000 have already been borrowed, and there is  more to come.  "If, however, wc consider these figures relatively to the population and  the estimated wealth of the nations  engaged in war we find that they are  not unprecedented. Per capita the  debts are no greater than those of  England and France at the close of tiie  Napoleonic wars. Moreover the per  capita basis is not the only, and perhaps not the most important basis oC  comparison. Wealth has increased far  more rapidly than population in the  last hundred years; so that the debts  at the present time are considerably  less in the percentage of accumulated  wealth than was our debt fifty years  ago, or the European debts a hundred  years ago.  "It is, s>' course, within the bounds  of possibility that the war may continue until one or more  than one of  of numbers in the field, flying through '��������� the   nations    involved   becomes hope-  the air to detect    the enemy's move-1 lessly bankrupt.    But all, or nearly all  Steel   Causes  Small   Percentage  of Casualties to Allies  How little    the bayonet is used by  the Germans in this war is shown by  the    fact    of Hie first.    1,000 soldlc;^  indicated that the party had decided  that Crocker Land was a myth. ' Rear-  Admiral Peary had reported he thought  Crocker Land had been located by  him from the summit of Cape Thomas  Hubbard, Greenland, .130 miles to the  northwest. Dr. Hovey said the explorers were returning to. New York after  two years' absence.  Practical Old Father���������Why don't you  get out and hustle for clients?
