The drafts sent away on Monday  for the overseas battalions now  bring the total number of men  from the Independent Company of  Rifles up to 237. Forty-seven men  went to the 102nd batlalion at Comox, nineteen men to the 172nd  battalion at Kamloops, and one  man to the 131st battalion at New  Westminster.  The following promotions have  been made: Pte. A. Carlisle to be  corporal, Pte. J. S. Nye to be corporal.  The following men have been attested and are uow ou the strength  of the company: Pte. Roy Angus McDonald, Pte. Arthur Ful-  lou Geddes, Pie. Fred Wilfred Forth).  Recruits are wanted for the 6tn  Field Company Engineers at Vancouver. Ttie following tradesmen are  required: Carpenters, plumbere,  electricians, civil engineers, mining  engineers, surveyors, architects, etc.  Recruits should apply at the barracks, and. if physically fit transportation can be arranged immedi-  alely.  The men composing the overseas  drafts wish to thank tueDaughters of  Ihe Empire and otherfriends for their  kindness generally, and particularly  for the gifts bestowed upon them  on tne occasion of their leaving  Grand Forks to join their battalious-  The Grand Forks Ministerial association, with Rev. M. D. McKee  as president and Rev. C. VV. King as  secretary, was organized in this city  last Monday afternoon.  A regular meeting of the Grand  Forks board of trade was held in the  board rooms last Friday evening.  President DeCew presiding.  The board decided to pay Mr.  Lake for the cuts to be used in tbe  publicity article in the Kettle Valley supplement of the Chinook  paper, published by the Greater  Vancouver Publishing company  The  following  letter from Hon.  Martin Burrell, minister of   agriculture, referring to the resolution from  the board asking for an amendment  tothe Dumping Clause, was read by  the secretary:    "I am in  receipt   of  your letter of tbe  8th   inst., enclosing copy of resolution passed by the  board   of   trade, dealing   with   the  Dumping Clause and   suggesting an  amendment,   which   shall   make it  operative  as against   commodities,  especially fruit  and lumber, placed  on our market below the cost of production.  I have  a very strong sympathy  with   the object aimed at in  the resolution, and  I have   bad the  matter brought to my attention from  time to time, especially  in  connection with fruit. As you   are   aware,  the   Dumping   Clause was designed  to deal with the situation in   which .  surplus goods would   be exported to  the   Canadian   market   at  a  price  lower than the price   for which they  were customarily sold in the United  States  market.    Such   prices   have  been fairly easy to establish in connection with what one may call the  trade   staples.     When   one  comes,  however, to deal with a  commodity  like fruit, which has no  fixed price  in the country of origin and   which  in some years has had great difficulty in finding a market at any   price  in   that   country, the case  is  very  difficult and  I can   quite  see   that  there   might   be  many and serious  difficulties iu establishing and proving costs of production over  a   very  large area in another country.    The  principle inv''"fcd, however, I think  is sound, ana in any case I am   enclosing a copy of the resolution both  to   the   minister of finance and the  minister of customs, with a covering  letter in   which   I   have   expressed  strong   sympathy   with   the object  aimed at.    Even   if,   however, such  an   amendment   were  advisable, it  may   not   be   possible to  deal with  general legislation thissession, which  will   be occupied mainly, if not entirely, with war measures.    In  any  c^e I could not speak definitely on  the matter at the present time."  On motion, the letter in reference  to prohibition was ordered filed.  The letter on the passing of the Egg  Mark act was directed to be handed  to the poultry association.  The resolution drawn up by the  publicity committee requesting that  funds for all patriotic movements be  raised by general taxation, was tabled, the board not being in favor of  the resolution.  The board of   trade will   hold   its  next   meeting   on   Friday evening,  Pte   James   Lawrence���������Age   23, ' February 11.  An excursion was run over the  Kettle Valley line on Wednesday  night to Cbimento's hotel at Lynch  creek, where a dance was given.  Nearly all the trains arriving in  the city have lately acquired the  habit of heing hebind time. THE    SUN,   GRAND    FORKS,    B. a  /���������-  A BRIGHT TOBACCO .OF THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS PEE FLU������  *  Deep Soil  Has a Greater Crop Producing   Capacity  Than   Shallow  Crops depend upon the preparation  of tiie ground 10 receive the seed as  much as Uiey do upon the nature of  tho soil. Soils that .are naturally  poor frequently yield larger crops  liian superior soils it' they are given  '��������� wetter, tillage. All soils may he  greatly improved by tillage. It is  claimed by many agricultural leaders  that the annual yield of farm products in this country could- be more  than doubled in ten years by a more  intensive system of culture.  Plowing is the foundation of tillage.  As a-rule,, we are plowing too shallow  to obtain the best results, but the  deepening of the soil should be gradual, for turning up too large quantities of sub-soil and turning the org-'  anic matter under^so deep that the  air, heat and water cannot' act fav-  orablyupon it has ruined: many soils  for years to come.  Farm, crops  as  a rule are greatly  benefited by deep seed beds.    At no  Lime should .hard  pan  be  allowed  to  form at plow depth.    Where shallow  ploughing is  desired  a sub-soil plow  can sometimes be used to advantage  but its use requires the^exercise'   of  judgment' as. the  process  may prove  very injurious if done out of season.  As  a general  rule it is  best to use  he subsoil plow in the fall, when the  subsoil  is  fairly dry  and  may  in  a  measure be recompacled, by the winter, rain.      Spring subsoiling is seldom  advisable in humid regions, owing to  the danger of puddling the subsoil or  lo the possibility of its remaining too  loose for best root development if the  work is done when the subsoil is dry  enough not   to    puddle.      On a well  drained field deep plowing is beneficial during both wet and dry seasons-  On wet soils shallow plowing is preferable.     A feep soil has greater crop  producing capacity than a shallow one  i-nnce it furnishes ideal conditions for  plant rqots-to go down after food and  moisture.  In selecting plows, harrows and cultivators we should study their construction. -. In the: process of tillage  or manipulation of the soil.it is available plant food that we are after. We  want implements that in every process of tillage will get at .the plant  vood that is still in the soil and make  ,t, available for the growing crops.  There is no reasonable excuse for a  man to spend money for commercial  Dlant food until he has provided means  .iy which the food, already in rhe soil  :an become available.- The chief object of tillage is the further liberation  jf the plant food which still exists  fcry abundantly in our land.  After we have thoroughly manipu-i  laied our soil and put it in the finest  possible condition for the reception of  :he seed and various fertilizing elements the next important object of  :illage is the conservation of soil mois-  :ure- Tillage is one of the most successful means of combating the injurious effects of dry weather and this  point should be emphasized in "particular because it is possible for us  to reduce in most instances from 25  to 5 per cent of the losses which usually come from periods of drouth.  Frequent surface cultivation forms a  dust mulch which prevents the evap^  oration of the moisture which is re-j  quired by the plant. The drier the  season the more frequent should be  the cultivation.  Periscopes Save  Lives in Trenches  Shippers' Association     j Charge of the Highlanders  British Campaign Started to Supply  All Soldiers at the Front  It is a well known fact that periscopes are not only indispensable in  submarine boats, but also on land in  the trenches. Soldiers back from the  front are unanimous in praising these  ���������instruments, which they say have  proved far more important savers of  life than appeared likely when they  were at first introduced.  A campaign is now first conducted  to induce parents, -wives and -friends  of. soldiers at the front to supply  their relatives with one of these instruments which will go far toward  protecting them /against attack.  Among men at the front the opinion  is general that the periscope is of importance not only tor use by the .officers, but also by the new recruits  who are beginning their experiences  on the firing line. These men are always eager to see the enemy and are  inclined to-risk any danger with that  object:; in mind. Hundreds of- lives  have been lost in this manner, whereas had the soldier used a periscope  lie would have obtained a better view  of the enemy's lines while keeping  himself out of reach.  O-.'T-he periscope lias been improved  and simplified to the highest "degree,  and'the instrument which is now  being widely used carries the scope  of the contrivance as far as it'tan be  carried- It is the,invention of a London journalist, and is called the Max;  fieldscope..'; 'It consists roughly of a  telescopic metal tube, made somewhat  on the lines of the leg of a collapsible  camera stand. Closed, the tube measures ten inches in length; fully extended it is thirty inches long. The  tube part of it. which can scarcely  weigh six ounces, can be hung on to  the belt.  ���������  The other,essentials, the glasses,  though they are four inches square,  and thus afford a large field of vision  are no longer than an ordinary business envelope, and thus fit easily into  a jacket pocket. The arrangement by  i which the glasses are attached to the  ' tube is ingenious and invariably successful. The tube being oval the mirrors are sprung on it by clips, which  hold them absolutely rigid. .  ���������"Another vital necessity in a periscope is that the splintering of the  glass should be prevented in case of  a hit by the enemy. This is met by  making the mirrors of the best glass,  "backing"-the' glass with good sound  material and binding the edges round.  Each part is packed in a separate  cover and <- the whole, if enclosed in  one parcel, would weigh well under a  pound. It is a really marvellous example of much in little, and the  whole contrivance, including spare  glasses (which can be got at twenty-  five cents apiece) can be delivered at  the front for less than $5.    ������������������  1,800 Shots a Minute  The latest machine gun adopted by  the war office is known as the Caldwell machine gun, being named after  its inventor, a mechanic of Victoria,  Australia.  It can fire at the rate of 1,000 shots  per minute (it is said the speed has  been increased to ] ,800 .sliols per minute) : has two barrels, which can both  be fired independently of the other;  and is air cooled, which doe* away  with the necessity for carrying water  to cool the barrel while working.  Caldwell sold'the patent rights of  this gun early this year to the war  office for the sum of $::2.*5.000 and $25  royalty on each gun manufactured,  and has been appointed manager of  tho workships wli-^e thoy are turned  out at a salary of $5,000 a year.  Says   Germans   Will . Desert   U.S.  The London tJaily Mail quotes Geo.  von Skal the New York correspondent of the Munich Neueste Nachrieh-  ten, as saying thafthere will be a general exodus of -.German-Americans  from the United States very soon.  "Thousands of German families are  making preparations to. leave," he  said. "No one in Germany can realize  what German-Americans are suffering. They are more and more conscious of their Teutonic descent. Emigrants have often been represented  for alolwing themselves to become  Americanized too quickly,, but today  they are showing' themselves true adherents of the German cause openly  and with little regard to their own  int crests."  Von Skai thinks that America will  be badly hit by the loss of many loyal  Germans.  Co-operative Marketing of Live Stock  in Saskatchewan  Co-operatio.n is slowly but surely  winning a place in Canadian agricultural. The co-operative marketing  of grain and also the joint purchasing  of stock*am', other supplies have been  practised, to some extent, but not until last year was the joint marketing  of stock attempted.  Under this system carloads of stock  from Saskatchewan are -made up,by  the shareholders and forwarded to the  larger market centres where competitive bidding is assured. There the  animals are sold under- the direction  of the associations' manager and the  proceeds from the sale, less the cost  of transportation, the manager's com-  /mission and the other necessary  charges, are distributed to. the' persons supplying the stock. Each  shareholder's stock is branded with  paint, or in some other harmless manner so that: the animals belonging to  each may be sold separately, thereby  insuring to each the exact return from  his stock. The associations are simple  in their working and as the animals,  are not paid : for until the proceeds  are received from the purchaser little  initial capital is required.  The Ha'nley Farmers' Stock shipping Association, of Saskatchewan,  was the first one formed. This association was registered early in. 19.14,  and had an authorized capital of $5po]  but at the close of the year it had a  paid up capital of only $42. Yet the  association: shipped fifteen carloads  of stock during the year, made of 3,-  .162 hogs and 38 cattle.  The hogs sold in Winnipeg at an  average price of 7.24 cents per pound.  Afer deducting the transportation  charges, the manager's commission,  the'selling commission, and other necessary; expenses, and allowing for  shrinkage, the shippers received an  average price of G.33 cents per pound,  home weight. The cattle shipped  were all common in their classes, being bulls, dry cows and stockers. An  average price of 4.40 cents was realized in Winnipeg, which, after deducting shrinkage and expenses, left a  net price of 4.S cents per pound, home  weight, for the drippers.

There are a number of these asso-  ciaions, now in different parts of Saskatchewan, and general satisfaction is  being expressed with the results obtained, so that it is confidently expected that expansion along this line  will be rapid.

George Batho to Run Agricultural  Publications for Manitoba  The appointment of George Batho  as editor of agricultural publications  for the Manitoba department of agriculture, was announced recently.  His duties will be to furnish'farmers of the province with all the practical information which the department of agriculture and the agricultural college can supply. This form  of assistance will be greatly extended  in future.  It has been recognized that-in the  matter of publicity the Manitoba department of agriculture has fallen behind all other provinces in - Canada-  The minister of agriculture believes  that the large staff of professors and  instructors at the agricultural college,  the extension service section, the demonstration farms system, the -weed  branch an other departments must necessarily become the source of more  information of a practical nature.for  the' farmers of Manitoba, than they  have been in the past. So insignificant has been this work in the past  that the Dominion authorities urged  upon the minister of agriculture the  appointment of an agricultural editor  under the special federal grant to the  province for agricultural instruction.  Under this grant the new appointment  is made. Mr...Paho's marked ability  as a journalist, his "sound judgment,  and his intimate knowledge, not-only  of agricultural condition's but also-of  public questions in Manitoba, were  considered as making him admirably  fitted to build up a" important branch  in the provincial department of agriculture.  The weed question is one of which  the farmers need much instruction.  Mr. Batho will give the farmers the  cream of Prof. Bed fords ideas on weed  eradication. Prof. Bedford is now in  complete charge of the weed problem,  R. G. O'Malley, chief weed inspector,  having resigned, as announced in the  Free Press several days ago.  For the, last twelve years Mr. Batho  has been editor in chief of the Nor'-  West Farmer. His early years were  spent on a farm in AVeliinglon county,  Ontario. Ho later learned the printing trade as a supplemental to his intention to enter the field of agricultural journalism.���������Free Press.  Germans     Offered     Charging  Money and Watches  A thrilling description of a  charge  of a  Highland  regiment near  Loos is given  in  the following .letter  from a Scottish member of the Royal  'Army, Medical Corps.  "Our division," the letter says, "after .'a week of furious bombardment  of the German trenches the like of  which the world has never heard before, and which sounded, especially  on Friday, September 21, like several  thunderstorms rolled into one, were  ordered to take Loos.  "A battalion of our local regiment  was chosen to lead the attack. Up  over the top ot the parapets ot the  trenches they got at 6 a.m. on the  eventful Sunday morning for the famous charge. Everything was still,  and the 'Jocks' didn't run, neither did  they shout, but in silence, with a slow  walk, and with deadly determination  written' on every face to get at close  grips with their diabolical enemy, the  line went, along in silence till suddenly the deadly German'machine  guns spoke.  of' lead met our brave  they toppled over in all  Those not hit, went  sheet (it never yet. rained so hard), through the second line,  and into the third line, where 'Alle-  gamne' had his machine guns.

Terrified yells of  'Mercy, kamerad,' were heard in all  directions.  "Devils who a moment before had  been pumping lead by' tiring machine  guns now held up watches, purses,-  etc.", for our men to spare their lives.,  "But these grand Scottish lads of  our famous regiment wore not to be  stopped that day. Leaping right over  the tops of the various lines of the  German trenches, bare knees . showing, kilts swishin,- performing the  so-called impossible task of piercing  the German lines, they did nor. slop  even then, for the Germans were out  of their trenches and over the crest  of the hills, great, big, fat, hulking,  blue-clothed cowards, fleeing for  their lives, with the Scotties after  them at full tilt.  "Every house in the village had its  machine guns, which wrought' havoc,  but that didn't stop our fellows. Into  the houses they went, and soon the  dead Germans were shovelled with  the bayonets out through the windows into the street. After clearing  the village they set off after them  again over the open country to Hill  70.. clearing the ground of the encum-  berers as they went. "Twas a famous victory.'

According to a report to the trade  and commerce department from Canadian Trade Comimssioner Bicker-  dike, of Manchester, the average increase in the retail prices of food  affecting the average working class  household in England is about 40 per  cent,   since the beginning of the war.  Compared with July, 1914, British  meat has increased about forty per  cent, in the whole, and imported meat  only a little over five per cent. Flour  and bread have advanced about forty  per cent. each. Since the beginning  of 1915, when the movement to increase wages began, in comparison  with the increased cost of living,  about four and a. half million people,  according to the board of trade estimates, have had their wages.increased  by over $3,750,000 per week. These  figures relate only to organized labor.  In other industries where individual  employers have granted advances, it  is estimated that three .million workers have received increases amounting to $2,500,000-per week.

'Information compiled by the Canadian Forestry Association, with the  assistance or the Dominion forestry  branch and provincial departments,  prove that more than twelve'thousand  forest fires, large- and small, occurred  in Canada during the past spring,  summer and fall, or an average of  1,400 a month between snow aa<t  snow.  in Ontario, Quebec and :\ew Brunswick and British Columbia about-  eighty-five per cent, of the losses  were clue to settlers' fires.

Bel'ore tho imposition of these  laws the Canadian railways were  pointed out as the chief offenders in  burning of forests. Now, however,  tha non-government lines under the  board's control are annually presenting a record-of lire immunity which  plivces them permanently among (he  minor-causes of damage" to the "country's timber. As a matter of fact,  only two or three fires of over ten  acres-in extent were attributable thfs  year'to those lines where the system  of the railway commission has' been  put completely into effect. On .two  railways of relatively small mileage,  lo which the board's regulations do  not apply, no less than 200 fires were  reported*. Many of them were serious  in extent and at least 600,000 acres  were burned over by fires, due either  to locomotives or men travelling along  the right-of-way of these two roads.  Manitoba lost more than $1,-000,000  in ("image to mature timber and  young growth in 1915. The total area  burned over was 800,000 acres, according to official reports thus far  received. Final reports will probably  show an increased loss. The fires  in Manitoba took place mainly in  the latter part of May and the early  part of June and were particularly  destructive in the vicinity of the Hudson Bay Railway.  ���������-���������la the province of Saskatchewan  the most destructive fires took place  during the. same period as in Manitoba, but the fires were confined more  to the areas under effective patrolanc!  the total destruction is not so great.

Probably not less than bait  a million acres were burned over. As  a good deal of the country burned  over is probably incapable of producing merchantable timber, the loss  would   not   be   over   $200,000.  In British Columbia the area pat-  rolfqd by the Dominion rangers is  confined to the railway belt. In the  eastern portion of tho bell rains occurred at fairly regular intervals, and,  while there was at several times considerable danger from fire, the ranger  staff was able to cope with the situation effectively, with the exception  of the month of August, in the Lower  Fraser valley, where several fires got  beyond control.

Germany's Crops  Have Failed  Editor of Wall Street Journal Gives  Some War Impressions  "Gearmany's crops have failed. Only  two-thirds of a crop has been.harvested this year in that country, and Ihere  is where lie pinch comes.. Ordinarily, Germany requires three hundred  thousand Poles every season to assist  in its harvest. The failure this year  has been due to the shortage of labor  and to the unfavorable weather conditions. This has struck at the very  basis of Germany's financial strength.  She is now forced to pay cash for food  1 in such neighboring countries as  Switzerland' and Denmark, and gradually her gold supply is being drained,  leaving a smaller reserve on . the  strength of which paper currency may  be issued. As a result, Germany's  food supply has been cut in two. Her  soldiers must be fed and the people  behind the trenches are forced to do  without regular rations. Accordingly  we are hearing of the bread riots in  Berlin and the offers of peace which  Germany inspires with such magnanimity."  This constitutes the most startling  of a series of startling and informative statements pertaining to the war  recently made by Mr. Clarence W-  Barron, editor-of the Wall Street Journal. He visited Europe in November  of last year for the express purpose  of acquainting himself with the underlying principles of the great world  struggle and the articles which came  from his pen following that trip have  been embodied in the well known book  "TJtie Audacious War."  It is Mr. Barron's opinion that Germany and Austria have reached the  maximum in the strength of their  forces in the trenches and in the utilization of their national resources.  "They are at the point now," he  said, "where they have no reserves."  On the other hand, the allies were  vist beginning to approach their maximum strength.  Referring to the recent Anglo-French  loan, Mr Barron said that tho bonds  of the allied nations were being widely sold throughout the United States.  This was due largely to the sympathy  of the majority of the people across  the line with the allies.  "The ally of the allies is the federal  reserve act, combined with our workshops and steel plants." declared Mr.  Barron. "Germany realizes that the  base and the backbone of this war is  on the North American continent."  America's Debt to England  Commerce of Neutrals Rests on the  Protection of the British Navy  Our government, for certain reasons wnich ought to be apparent to  all, cannot, and certainly should not  adopt an attitude on this subject  which is a shade more threatening  than the one it has taken, says the  Boston Transcript, ��������� expressing a  sane American view of the note to  Britain. No doubt it must define  and confidentially assert the rights  of neutral nations at sea in time of  war.- But the big central fact remains that the commerce of all  neutral nations at sea, including our  own, rests for its very existence on  the protection of the navy of Great  Britain. But for that protection our  ships would today be huddling in  our harbors, our. goods would be,  piled up on our wharves, and our  factories', save for what they might  make for-home -consumption, would  be idle. - The seas would be the  prey of fighting squadrons and  ravaging cruisers. Outrages of the  William P. Frye type would never  have ceased;  This is true, and it is also true  that the allied powers have the  sympathy of the world in the use  so far as that use is legitimate, of  the one effective weapon that they  possess against German,militarism���������-  the control of the seas. Against the  terrible stress of German land preparation their means of resistance for a  time" fell short, and even now the.y  availno further than to keep the enemy at bay. To withhold supplies from  the German nation is the allies' one  great nope of winning the war and of  defending free institutions the world  over against the mailed fist of Prussian absolution. We say that this, being so terribly true, amply warrants  the; ���������United States government in refraining from any menacing tone in  asserting its rights as a neutral to  trade, ad libitum;: with' any other  neutral. Our government does well  lo abstain from threat, and to say  instead: "Relying upon the regard  of the British government for the  principles of justice so frequently  and uniformly manifested prior to  the present war, this government  anticipates that the British government will, instruct their'officers to  refrain from these vexatious and  illegal  practices."-  If the American people believed  that President Wilson had any intention to stab the allies in the back, at  the time of their most crucial heed'of  all their resources, they would not  approve the stand ho has now taken.

Her Many Duties Affect Her  Health   and   Often   She  BreaksDown Completely  It is little wonder that there, are  many times in a woman's life when  she feels in despair. There is no  nine hour day for the busy housewife.  There are a hundred things about the  home to keep her busy from the time  she arises until it is again bed time-  .What is the result? Often her nerves  give way, her good looks suffer, her  Dlood becomes thin, her indigestion is  disturbed and her system threatened  with a complete breakdown. Every  woman should do all possible to protect her health and good looks, and  there is one way in which she can do  this, and that is by taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These actually  make new, rich blood, strengthen  every nerve and every organ, bring  the glow of health to the cneeks and  brightness to the eye. , These pills  have done more to make the lives of  thousands of women sunshiny than  anything else in the world. Mrs. Daniel Theal, Waterloo, Ont., says: r'.I  was very much run down, my blood  was thin and watery and I would faint  at the least excitement. I suffered  from headaches and dizziness and often it seemed as though there were  clouds before my eyes. Finally I was  forced to go to bed with weakness.  I doctored for six weeks while in bed  without receiving any benefit. Finally  I was induced to take Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, and when I had taken ten  boxes I was completely cured, and  never felt better in my life. T am convinced that what Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills did for me they will do for others  and I warmly recommend them to all  weak women."

More Respect for Allies  Germans See They Are Not the Whole  . .'��������� 'Thing' '���������'���������";���������'���������-'  Very significant at this time is the  publication in the leading Roman  Catholic organ, the Kolnische Volks-  zeiung, of a rebuke addressed by one  of the army chaplains to the arm chair  fire-eaters at home. He declares  that many of the-letters written from  the homes of Germany to the husbands  and sons in the field disgust and dishearten the soldiers at the- front, the  best of whom are tired of the bitter  losses and terrible sufferings caused  by the war. He denounces the habit  of classing Germans as supermen, and  says that the German troops at the  front, have learned to respect their  foes so that they do not echo many  of the sentiments- expressed by their  ultra-patriotic friends and relatives at  home. Tho whole letter is really an  appeal for less war enthusiasm and  more reasonable appreciation of the  point of view of Germany's foes- This,  too, would have been impossibe six  months a'go.  It is the rise in the cost of living,  and especially in the price of food,  that increases more than anything  else the growth of war weariness.-���������A  remarkably outspoken comment on  the food question which appeared in  the Socialist Vorwarts was as follows :  "One of the most dangerous deceptions perpetrated during th������ , war is  the pretence that Germany, although  cut off from all her oversea supplies,  can feed her. own population. The  fact is that the population of Germany cannot be properly fed by products of our own country. The war  has proved beyond all doubt that it is  impossible to produce enough articles  of nourishment or to raise a sufficient  number of cattle to feed the German  people without foreign assistance. It  is true that we shall be able to hold  out for some limited time, but only at  the cost of the health and strength of  the nation, now being nndermined by  systematic deprivation and underfeeding."

Totals Over Two Thousand '  Pure Bred Bison  The Canadian government buffalo i  herd was started in J897 by the gift  of three Texas buffalo presented by  Mr. T. G.Blackstock, - cf Toronto, to  Rock Mountain Park. These animals  were placed on exhibition in the paddock at Banff, and the following year  their number was increased by a similar gift from Lord Strathcona, who  presented tho government with thirteen head from his Silver Heights  herd at Winnipeg. This herd gradual- \  ly increased until by 1009 if totalled j  nearly 100 head. j  In 1906 the government entered into negotiations with Michael Pablo, of  Montana, for his herd of pure blood  bison on the Flathead Indian reserve.  This, herd was known to be the largest herd of pure blood bison then in  existence ���������". but was not believed to  number- more than about 300 head.  Pablo had for years tried to.get the  American government to give him  enough land on which tokeep.the herd  and at last they announced^that the  Flathead reserve was to be thrown  open, which meant that Pablo would  be forced out and compelled either to  find a new range or a purchaser for  the herd.  ��������� Howard Eaton, the well known  guide and friend of Theo. Roosevelt,  heard of the matter, and secured an  option from.Pablo for $300 per head.  He then went lo Washington and  tried to get the U.S.;government to  buy the herd. Roosevelt and/the Bison  Society urged the purchase but congress refused to pass an appropriation  and Pablo had to look somewhere,  else. Through Alex Ayotte, immigration agent at Missoula, the matter  was brought to the attention of the  Canadian government which realized  the opportunity offered.- Before the  United States authorities realized  what was happening the bargain was  completed. It was supposed that  there would bs about 300 buffalo, but  the total finally captured amounted  to 70S. The price paid was $250 per  head, f.o-D., at Edmonton.  The task of rounding them up proved much more difficult than was anticipated. It called for perserverance,  endurance and horsemanship of the  highest order. The buffalo were extremely wild and swift of foot and  could outrun the fastest horses.  The first year. : 1907, 400 buffalo  were secured���������200 males were shipped in the spring and 2.11 cows and  calves followed in the autumn. As it  had not been possible to get Buffalo  Park fenced and ready in time for  these arrivals, they were placed in  Elk island Park���������-a fenced enclosure,.  1G square miles in area, established  several years before for the protection  of elk; and moose.         .^  There are still know nto be a large  number of buffalo left on the range  and although Pablo' now had many  other offers'.he agreed to let the Canadian government have the remainder  at the same price. In the autumn of  190S, therefore, another round-up was  made, and eight miles of wing fence  and a large corral were built- After  six weeks hard riding the animals  were all rounded up and the tired  cowboys went home to sleep. That  night, led by an old clever bull, the  entire herd escaped by climbing an  almost perpendicular cliff and broke  away to the mountains.  The next year Pablo decided to put  them in huge wooden cages out in the  range and to haul these cages the  thirty miles to the station. There they  were' unloaded into a small corral to  await shipment. The last and final  struggle then occurred���������that of getting them on board the train. The  great brutes resisted to the last. It  took nine days to load 200, and eight  of them killed themselves in their  struggles. The majority had to bs  drawn on the cars by means of a  block and tackle-  During 1909 the buffalo from Elk  Island Park were also transferred to  Buffalo Park at Wainwright, with the  exceplion of about GO which were left  at Lamont for exhibition purposes.  Last year the buffalo at Banff, with  the exception of 17 males, were also  transferred. There are now 13 at  Banff. 10S at Elk Island, and approximated 2,000 at Buffalo Park.

C.  FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1916  Dispatches from the coast indicate that the  bye-eloctions will be held this month, but no  official announcement has yet been made by  the government. It is quite plain that Pre-  rnier Bowsor does not want to give the people  too long a period in which to worry over the  affairs of the country.  Hon. Martin Burrell, member for Yale-  Cariboo and minister of agriculture, has written a very pleasant letter to the local board of  trade, but that is as far as it goes. It does not  give the board much encouragement that the  legislation asked for will be forthcoming in  the near future.  Owing to the heavy drain upon   th^   live  stock   of   the  various   warring   countries  of   Europe,    thev   have   been  forced to ������o abroad for supplies     The longer thp w.-ir lasts  the greater will ho this demand     Moreover,  worm peace  restored, these countries will require large numbers .if the  various classes of animals to  replenish   their   studs, herds  and flocks   It should he borne   in   mind:   however,    that  the buvers, who come to this    country after the   war, will  require better animals than have been bought during   war  time, as they will be   used   largely   for breed-ny puivosis  With this end in view, the best of the fema'es. and |������u tic  ulnrlv the young stock, should he. kept for   br^ding   pur  poses.    Breeders should not.fail to raise a'l the   live stocl.-  possible at this time, in order   that   the   county   may   be  ab'e to supply a large number of the animals that are cer  tain fo be needed by th<������ warring countries      At.   present.  however, there is an unequal distribution of live   stock in  thfi country.     Tn certain sections there is a heavy surplu-.  with a corresponding scarcity in other parts.    During   the  past year hundreds of young cattle from our   prairie.provinces have gone to  the United States as .stockers and feed  ers.    These  should   have   ben kept at home, particularly  the females     Sections of the  west  are   reported as bein������  in need of good   draft horsus,   particularly   draft    mares:  while, in  sections   of  Ontario, there is an over supply of  this particular class.   In order to remedy these conditions.'  the minister of agriculture, through the live stock  branch,  has decided to grant liberal aid to breeders   who   wish   to  seiure gno'.l-breeding stock.    The   conditions under which  aid will be given are'is follows:  In the event of a number  of fa'-rners in any district of Canada wishing to co operate  for the purchase of breeding stock   in   carload   lots   from  some distant section of the country,  the  department will  pav the t cm veiling expenses of the'r duly   appointed repre  sentative during the Ihe time required to  effect  the   purchase   and   transport   the   shipment   to   its destination.  Should ir he des'red,the live stock commissioner will nominate a suitable person who will be directed to accompany this  representative and assist him as far as possibue in   buying  and shipping the animals     Persons wishing to take advantage of this offer should make full arrangements with   the  Live   Stock   Commissioner, Ottawa, as   to   the place and  time of purchase before sending out   their   representative.  Ottawa, Feb. 4.���������The Canadian parliament  buildings are in ruins. Fire which broke out  at I) o'clock last night in the commons reading  room, swept with tremendous fury down the  corridors and leaped into the galleries and in  the space of three minutes had filled the  whole wing with an impenetrable volume of  smoke.    It was followed quickly by flames.  Two people are known, to be dead. They  are Mme. Bray, wife of Dr. Bray of. Quebec,  and Mme. Morin, wife of Dr. Louis Morin,  Quebec. They were guests of Mine. Sevigny,  wife of the speaker of the house, and were cut  off in their apartments. Four men are reported to be buried in the ruins,but the fierceness of the fire has so far prevented search for  the bodies. They were buried by a falling  wall.  Mine. Sevigny escaped by leaping into a fire  net, while Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of  agriculture, was severely burned about the  face and hands while escaping from, his office,  adjoining the commons roading room.  The origin of the fire is a mystery. It may  never be known. There were suspicions last  night of incendiarism, possibly by a German  agent, but as policemen were on guard at both  doors of the room where the fire started and  others in the room itself, it would have been  difficult for any one to have deliberately set  the fire without being detected.  Priceless documents and relics have been  lost by the fire.

Blei-s the man; that is thi  only kind of government   they hav>  had for years.    The  legislature has-  been nothing but  a  registering ap-  piratus;   the   average    government  supperter transferred   his reasoning  faculties, as far as legislation is con  corned, to that omniscient   aggrega  tion known as the executive council,  whose   sagacity,   honesty   and   far-  8'ghted statesmanship   are reflected  iii the   condition  of   the   province.  Sir Charles in emphasizing the  danger of this  form   of government   to  the   welfare   of   British   Columbia,  says he recalls  one   order in council  under which a considerable amount  of money was expendad and   which  ���������   was pronounced by the court  to   be  null   and    void   and   an'attempted  usurpation of   the functions of   par  liament.

In   the- reichstag free,, unrestricted   debate   is   permitted, although that is the limit of its actual  rights and privileges.    In our legislature a government supporter must  swallow the fare that is   set   before  him whether he likes it  or not, and  he would not dream of rising in his  place to   criticize the diet, unless he  had received permission   to   do   so.

"The man who has not arms  ���������when burglars are   at the front door  had better stand still," he commented, amid laughter. But the United  States was getting arms. She was  building them for the British empire,  too. She had never before floated a  loan for half a billion dollars but she  liad done so for the allies, "and this  is only the beginning."  "Such financial brains as I have tell  me that Germany cannot go through  another winter of war such as this,"  said Mr. Barron, in dealing with the  prospective length of the struggle.  Postal Curiosities  Stamps bearing Quecu Victoria's effigy ceased to be valid after the last  day of June iu the present year. Previous to the introduction of stamps  letters bad to be taken lo one of the  branch offices, which were limited ia  numbers even in large cities; and if  the sender prepaid the postage a red  mark was affixed and it went forward.  If the sender did not pay in advance,  the postage was payable on delivery,  which was very customary, and was  frequently considered the safest way  of insuring that the missive would  reach its destination.    -  When the new stamp was introduced in 1S"40 it was invariably called the  "Queen's head," and old- people used  this term for many a longvday afterwards. When first issued th,. the public the'sheets on which the^stamps  were printed were not perforated,  and each had to be separately cut, a  process both slow and troublesome;  and it was some years before perforation was adopted.

A Bitter Choice  Let us be honest. Harper's Weekly  has been constantly in favor of keeping out of the war, if it could be  done without abandoning the principles laid down by our government in  defense of humanity. It has been  done, and brilliantly, and we are glad  we have kept out. Glad, in the sense  that it is our choice; yes, but not  happy. It is not a joyous thing to  see other countries bleeding for our  benefit, while we pay nothing, but instead prosper. Especially it Germany is successful enough to justify  the planned and prepared aggression,  control of reluctant .peoples, glory of  material power, contempt for ethics,  then indeed will the American choice  be bitter to look back upon. Then  indeed shall we dream bad dreams  over what psychological effect our  coming in might have had. at a critical moment, on the Balkan States, on  Turkey, on Germany���������what' effect a  most energetic effort to reach our  maximum in munition shipments as a  belligerent might have had.���������Harper's  AYeeklv-  ever coma  everybody  passers to  ed of the  man fleet,  Through the incideut of the great  war the world is becoming daily appreciably smaller.

"Do you think the British fleet will  out?" is the question that  on board, "from coal-  the highest officers," ask-  correspondent. The Ger-  it appears, is waiting for  a challenge. Why does not Great  Britain "throw the glove in the  naval arena for Germany to pick  up?"  The ships on which this delightful  segment of German public opinion  was found are as snug as bugs in a  rug under the guns of Wilhelms-  haven. They are protected by mainland fortifications, by mines in the  sea and by the outlying fortress of  Heligoland. They are as secure  against come-outers as a cave dweller, and designedly so.  Many things have happened while  these ships have held this comfortable berth. The British fleet has  come out sufficiently to control the  seven seas. Aside from a few submarines there is not a German ship  afloat anywhere except in neutral  harbors and in heavily protected  German waters. Men-of-war and  merchant men alike have disappeared, while British flags, commercial  and naval, are seen as frequently as  iu peace in every ocean. With nearly all its colonies in the hands of  tlio enemy and its great high-sea  flc'ftt held helplessly a. prisoner iu its  own harbors, Germany may fairly be  asked what kind of comic opera challenge it is awaiting.���������New York Herald.  A Graphic Description of the Big  Bombardment  There was still wreckage enough remaining on the battlefield of Champagne three weeks after the battle  was fought to give some idea of the  havoc of destruction when it was  fresh after the advance, says an eyewitness account, within a space fifteen miles in length by from one lo  three in breadth. At least a million  men were , engaged on both sides;  25,000 prisoners wero taken, and at  least two or three shells for every  man engaged was fired.  That sheet of preparatory shell  fire which descended upon fifteen  miles of German front trenches had  meant a. swath of slaughter to start  with- For three days, night and  day-his bombardment continued. According to accounts of German prisoners they could only hug the shelter  of their subterranean chambers under their crumbling parapets. A wall  of artillery lire back of the trenches  kept the supplies from reaching them.  In front of the trenches the continued  crash of shrapnel blasts was cutting  the barbed wire. For months the  French had been accumulating ammunition which thoy poured out from*  every calibre of gun.  The shell (ire not only killed "and  wounded Germans; not only made  the most elaborate trenches into  dust heaps, but littered the field  with smashed German cassione,  transport wagons, clothing, equipment, and all the empedients of an  army. There was peace in the German" trenches for the first time iu  three days as the wave of French  int'antrv rushed for the German  trenches. Then the ^French guns  stopped firing lest they kill their  own men. The wave had not more  than 200 yards to go. Estimate the  time that it takes the average man  to run that distance, and you have  the time it took the French soldiers to  reach the wreckage which had been  the German trenches and grapple with  any survivors in .'the dugouts. -In  some places the wave swept on beyond the trench like the tide running up an inlet. The Germans between such forces were caught in a  pair of pincers. This accounted for  the prisoners, who Avere taken in  batches. They were surrounded by  infantry with no way of retreat open  to them.

Dairy  Products so That They  Reach Consumer in  Fresh  Condition  As a rule, people get their ideas of  a branch of business from the viewpoint at which they are located. If  the dairy business is viewed from  the viewpoint of the family living  on a farm in a remote portion of the  country away back from any of the  trunk lines of railroads, it looks like  a dull, profitless business, for in the  majority of such cases the cows are  indifferently cared ,. for, the amount  of the dairy products is not large, and  the prices paid at the cross roads  dealer's place is rather small. :���������  On the other hand, the dairy -farmers who live within easy access' to  a lively manufacturing town where  there is a large number, of laborers  and their families to feed, there is a  good demand for all that can be produced, and at 'a high price. In.such  cases there is an urging force which  calls for more products of an excellent quality.

(G  GERMANYTHREATENS EXISTENCE OF DEMOCRACY  Gifford   Pinchot says   that the Allies are Fighting to Uphold  -Highest American Ideals, and the U. S. Should Hamper  Them as Little as Possible in the Conduct of the War  the  Gifford Pinchot, in an address at  the Aldine Club, New York, answered  his own question: "Both in our own interest and to satisfy our ;sense of  justice, what do we in the United  States most desire us the outcome'of  the. war?" by saying:  ".Victory for" the allies, of course."  Mr, Pinchot discussed' the disturbance of foreign'trade and the inconveniences to certain classes of American business men, and this led tip to  his query as to the wise position for  the United States to take in the matter. (Answering, the question: "Why?"  Mr, Pinchot said: ,     ;  "First of. all, because this is really  our war; that is to say; the principles  for which it is being fought are principles for which the United States  stands, and which"we are interested  in having prevail in the world at  large. It is to our interest as a people not to have treaties regarded as  scraps of paper; not to have decency  and humanity disregarded in methods  of warfare; not to have militarism in  tho ascendant and democracy crushed. We want the small nations to be  respected. It is of vital consequences  to us that civilization as we know it  shall be protected and preserved  against the German theory that nothing is sacred against the self-interest  of the strong.  "If the allies win, there is no trouble in sight for the United States. We  in America may then proceed, undisturbed from without to work out our  own problems in our own way. If the  allies win, democracy in Europe will  bo preserved against the encroachments of military autocracy, and the  prospect for lasting peace will be at  least reasonably good- But if Germany wins, the very existence of  democracy in Europe will be iu dan  ger, and if democracy goes under on  that continent it-will not long survive  on this one. '  "If Germany wins, world-wide peace  will become a dream,,and we shall  find ourselves compelled to use all  our power and all our resources to  get ready for what will then ?>e. the  inevitable armed conflict with Germany, a conflict which the German  military, rulers already are known to  regard as .a necessary part of their  program of world control.  "We are today a peaceable and  peace loving nation. Nothing is more  certain; than that, if Germany wins,  we shall be forced-to transfer our first  and best attention from self-improvement to-self-defense, and;tc arm on a  scale that not even the- most ardent  advocate- of preparedness now regards  aspossible. In the face of a victorious  Germany, determined upon world power, we can hope to.preserve our national self-governing existence only by  force of arms. The victory of Germariy  would:: transform the United States  also into an armed camp.  "If,: then, it is enormously to our interest as a nation to have the allies  win, let us hamper them ,as little as  we reasonably can in their conduct of  the war... ������������������_....'..; .'���������'.''.'..  "We must never forget that the allies are paying in blood and treasure  a price beyond anything we could  have imagined before the war began,  and paying it to ������������������maintain the principles to -which the government is  dedicated- The allies are protecting  us, with the rest of the neutral world,  from the necessity of either to arm to  the teeth and fight or to yield to the  control of a military autocracy whose  only law is its own advantage. The  least we can do-is not to attempt to  tie their hands."  Thrilling Adventures  Of English Woman  Her   Escape   From   Belgium  Was  Effected   by   Disguise  Mrs. Malcolm Carter, an English  woman of Belgian birth, who arrived  in New York recently, told her friends  the story of how she escaped from  Belgium by disguising herself in the  costume of a Flemish peasant and  creeping, under the barbed wires on  tin Dutch "rontier. Mrs. Carter came  to seek aid for Belgian soldiers who  have been blinded or permanently disabled.  She went from London to Belgium  to visit-her father, and says that her  passport was taken away and torn  up on the orders of General Von Bis-  sing, the military commander. She  was suspected of being a spy, but after two months obtained a new pass  from another German commander, but  that also was confiscated.  Realizing that her only m^ans of escape was by subterfuge, she went to  the home of a'friend in Antwerp and  emerged from the house in disguise.  She was carried in the cart of a Belgian cheesemonger part of the .way to  the Dutch border,and smugglers guided her the remainder of the way.  . "There were times," said Mrs. Carter, "when we were crawling on the  ground, and it was eleven hours before we reached the barbed wire that  marks the border. Then I was literally poked and rolled through tho  lines of  twisted  wire to  safety."  ������������������________.._ ��������� 'V  Value of Wireless  Is  Proving a  nection  Con-  the  ves-  ports^  Shelter for Implements  "Seasonable Hints" For the Farmers  . During Winter  "The real test of the farmer is, perhaps, in his ability to make the most  profitable-use of the various products  of his farm and his foresight in getting ready in every way practicable  between harvest and seed time for  the productive operations of the next  season." ; Thus states Mr. J. H. Gris-  dale. director, Dominion Experimental  Farms, in presenting Seasonable  Hints, No. 3, for November, December, January and February, to the  farming public of Canada. A careful  perusal of its sixteen pages will amply  reward the stockman, the agriculturist, the horticulturist, the poultryman,  the tobacco grower, and those especially interested in bees. A feature  of this third issue is the advice under the caption "Shelter the Implements." The enormity of the vast sum  of money spent annually on farm  machinery is impossible of realization. To equip an average farm with  machinery costs about $1,000, which  under ordinary conditions of treatment will not do good work for more  than five years. To counteract this  waste, for unsheltered implements  means waste, shelters should be built.

And slowly but surely, without ostentation- or boasting, like the slaying of  a man in the darkness by an unsean  liand, it, has laid its grip on the throat  of Germany, never henceforth to be  relaxed until the end comes.

Great Life-Saver in  with   Accidents  at  ��������� Sea  During the fiscal year of 1915  inspectors of, the radio bureau  Washington reported 26 cases of  sels' leaving United jStates  which met with accident or disastel  requiring the use of wireless to summon assistance. Four of these calls  were due to fire, twelve to running  ashore, stranding or getting into "an  ice jam, three to breakage of machinery, four to collisions,, one to shifting cargo, one to vessel being storm-  battered and waterlogged, r.nd one to  being torpedoed.  Except in the ca/e of the Lusitania,  which was torpedoed, the assistance  rendered resulted in but two lives  -being lost. Since the closing of the  fiscal year the following marine disasters have occurred in which the use  of wireless helped to save a number  of .lives:  On September 15, tho Fabry liner  Santa Anna, bound from New York  to Naples with 1,700, caught fire in  mid-ocean, and all the passengers and  ere v,'were - saved. ���������'.���������_- The S.O.S. call  brought the Italian steamer Ancona  to her aid, (500 passsngers were safely  .transferred", and the burning vessel  was escorted to the Azores.  Six days later the Greek liner Ath-  inai, bound from New York to Piraeus  and Saloniki. caught fire 050 miles  east of Sandy Hook, with 170 passengers and crew on board, and had to  be abandoned. The Anchor liner Tus-  cania responded to the S.O.S. call  and took off 341 passengers in lifeboats, and the remainder wera  brought to New York on the freighter  Roumanian Prince.  The inspectors of the radio bureau  stated that the report of the Athinai  showed conclusively that many persons - might have been lost and the  cause of the Joss of the steamer never  known if the vessel had not been  equipped with wireless apparatus.���������  Nov.- York Times.

There have been varying stories in  , respect to the Ca-iadian arm, some of  | them favorable and some very unfavorable.

France After War Grafters  pie     Who     Profit     Unduly   From  Needs   of  the   Nation   Are  Punished  A vigorous campaign undertaken  by the French government to punish  persons who have profited unduly  from tho needs of the nation is well  under way. A Supply Corps officer  named Parent and his soldier clerk  have been sentenced by a court martial to five years in prison and fines  of .1,500 francs ($300) for accepting  commissions from contractors on purchases of supplies amounting to more  than   6,000,000   francs    ($1,-.'00,000).  "Jean Busseret, a tent manufacturer, who obtained orders for 1,500,-  000 francs ($300,000) worth of goods  by the payment of commissions, has  been sentenced to ten years' imprisonment and a heavy fine. Three  other business men convicted on  similar charges have been sentenced  to prison.  The Junior Fall Fair as it is being  carried on in Saskatchewan, was first  inaugurated by the district representative in Ontario and the county -agent  of the United States.  In Ontario the Junior Fall Fair is  known as the Rural School Fair. In  the'United Stales it has taken the  form of societies," such'as "The Corn  Club Boys," "The Canning Girls," the  "Baby Beef Boys," etc      -     .  In Saskatchewan the department of  agriculture and the department of  education co-operate in this work.  The object aimed at in holding these  fairs is two-fold. In'., the first place  the,children are given the educational  line embodied in the work. And,  secondly, the Junior Fall Fair has  proven one of the best ways of linking the farmiug public and the department together that they may become acquainted and thus further the  interests of progressive agriculture.  The following is a brief outline of  the work:  During the spring months the agricultural secretary visits the teacher  and children for the work in "connection with the fair.  The general details are as follows:  The boys and girls of each school  nominate three of their number to act  as directors on the Junior Fall Fair  board. After the nominations have  been concluded a meeting is held at  some central point for the purpose of  electing a president ' and secretary  treasurer. '���������'.-���������������������������   : ' ���������  All the business and management in  connection .with, the fair is arranged:  by the hoard of directors: that is,  when the material supplied by the department is given out in the.spring a  complete list is kept of the pupils receiving the same, thus when the Junior Fall Fair takes pake all products '  are automatically entered- it is the  duty of the president of the School  Fair board to sign all chequss and  hava general supervision over all matters pertaining to the fair.  ���������    :      ""  The secretary-treasurer is a busy  person and should be one in a position which would allow his or her  /-. iting, witlv tire agricultural secretary tlje plots', grown' by the'Children  during the - summer. This -makes it  possible for the secretary-treasurer to  report to the board of directors, who,  in co-operation with the school teachers and agricultural secretary, prepare  the premium list.  This   co-operation   of  the   board   of  directors, school teachers and agricultural secretary creates  a greater interest among the boys and girls of our  farms iu agriculture;  helps bring the  life and  interests of the school more  closely iu contact with  the home-life ,  of the pupil; encourages the boys and ���������  girls in a common and natural appreciation of the  beautiful in nature, as  well as giving them something definite to do and to have something which  they can call their very own.  The school children carry on the  work on plots at homo. These plots  are of a uniform size, generally 1-10.0  of an acre, which makes the work of  comparison  more simple.    All    ssed  grain, garden seeds and tubers are  supplied by the department of agriculture. L'ggs are also' .supplied lor  hatching purposes- Only pure.strains  are supplied thus making the children  familiar with the better side of farming.  The agricultural secretary visits the  plots of each boy and girl during the  summer, scores them, and makes suggestions of a practical nature where  the occasion warrants. This is the  key to the lasting effects of the fall  fair work.  The fair is held some time during  the months of September and October,.as suits the district in which it  is to take place. The rules and regulations arc the same as any agricultural society fair, and all prize money  is paid by cheque, arrangements being made at the local banks re cashing, of the same.  General benefits derived from  school fair work:  1. Rural depopulation is checked.  The children whose early impressions  are lasting have not a craving for  other lines of work when farming is  made interesting .and instructive  through the junior fall fairs.  -2. A community interest is created,  thus bring people together socially,  which means much towards elevaticn.  3. Children are interested in progressive agriculture. When children  become interested it. is much easier to  interest the parents.  4. Rural education is put on a  firmer footing. The boys and girls of  today are the men and women of tomorrow.  5. Social advantages:  (a) The training received by the  boys and girls in the fall fair work  will help them to bo of greater service to the community in which they  live-  (b) Agriculture and other lines o������  education ar*a. placed on a firm, practical footing, recognizing the fact that  the future of Saskatchewan depends  to a great extent on how well both  are carried on.  Prize money is contributed by the  municipal councils, school trustee  boards and individuals interested in  the junior fall fair work.  An objection  has    been  raised    to  giving cash prizes;   but it is thoroughly understood    that the children are  not to compete for the monetary value  of the prize,    but   for   the educative  value and incentive  to grow or province some article better    than other  ; pupils produce.    All money should be  I paid  by cheque and in  this  way  the  'children arc acquainted-with banking.  |     The  line  elevator  companies   with  i headquarters in Winnipeg, who oper-  ! ate   country   elevatorsr. in Sasaktche-  j wan,  are    donating a scholarship  of  J $ I oo to be used in a course in agricul-  j ture  or domestic science at the  College of Agriculture, Saskatoon, to the  I boy or girl in each municipality mak-  ! ing the highest score in competitions-  [ Competitions at the annual junior fall  fair between    the   age of     14 and IS  ! years are eligible to compete for this  'scholarship^,  British Women Busy  Since the war began to drain Britain of men so' heavily the inimlic-r  of women workers has increased.  There are now 50.000 women clerks  employed in London, against ::*),000  in 1011'. The increase in other cities  is in proportion.  Before the war began there were  1,000,000 more women than men in  Britain.  Tlu French minister of war has  sent to tiie military governors of  Paris and Lyons and the generals  commanding the military districts of  France large placards reading:  "Keep silent: Be careful: The  Enemy is Listening."  ]t is ordered that these placards  be placed in railway trains and .street  cars  and  other public places.  Geography in Germany  Bavarian   Children   Are  Taught  Some  Queer "Facts"  The school authorities in Bavaria  have published notes on war geography for the children attending the  public schools. The following information is given regarding Russia:  The Russian territory already occupied by the Germans is four times as  extensive as the Kingdom of Bavaria,  but is only one-seventy-fifth of the  entire Russian empire. But the greater part of Russia is thinly populated,  and the most populous districts are already in German possession, so that  Russia can now show only six-  sevenths  of her fcrm.-'r  population.  At the beginning of the war, Russia  had fifty million more inhabitants  than Germany and Anstro-Mungary  combined; namely, 170 millions  against U'O millions. After a year of j  warfare this position had boon reversed: Russia now has only l.-lf> millions,  whereas the Central .Monarchies rule  over I ."it* millions.  The new territory occupied in east  and west as an extensive as the entire  Kingdom of Prussia.  Temporal Powers  Of the Papacy  This is German Bait to Ensure Sympathy of the Roman Catholics <,.  The restoration of the temporal  power of the papacy is the latest bait  offered by the Germans to enlist sympathy of the Roman Catholic cause.  According to a Swiss correspondent of  the Standard, Prince von Buelow's  visit to Switzerland was connected  with a scheme for the restoration -of  papal sovereignty after the war. This  would serve both as  Italy for her so-called  former allies of the 'I  and   would   conciliate  revenge   upon  perfidy to her  'riple  Alliance,  Roman   Cath-  A motorist, who was louring in Ireland one day met a native who was  driving a donkey and cart.
