Speikers  thoroughly acquainted with their  subjects addressed the audience on  various topics affecting the welfare  of the fruit growing industry.  R. C. Abbott, coast market commissioner, spoke on ''Trie Coast Market." -Pie told the audience of the  progress that had been made by the  department during the past few  years to gain the coast market for  the fruit growers of "the province.  Mr. ' Abbott has a comprehensive  knowledge oj the requirements of  the trade in the large consuming  centres of the province, where he  has spent many yerirs in this work.  His address was attentively listened  to by those present.  A. H. Flack, chief Dominion fiu t  inspector  for the prairie provinces,  tO'rk    for    his   subject,   ''Ways   nf  Griding and Packing "   Before   entering   the  services   of   the federal  department, Mr. Flack ^spent some,  yeaiv'iii British Columbia,  and  his  address showed that he is thoroughly conversant with   conditions   both  here and on the prairies, because Ins  travels throughout the three western  provinces have brought him in close  touch A'ith the jobbers, retailers and  consumers.  He  told of the requirements   of   these   people,  and   also  dealt   with   the  standardization   of  fruit   packages,   a    most   important  feature  of   this   year's     marketing  problems.  Edwin Smith, the Dominion government's   pre-cooling     expert    of  Grimsby,   Out, spoke  on  "Careful  Handling  and   Pre-cooling "     Mr.  Smith was at one   time   engaged in  experimental   work  in  British Columbia, but   for   the   past few years  has devoted   bis  attention   to   Ontario's requirements, and   has   successfully fathomed many   soft  fruit  problems     He has during   the past  year   written   much   about his ex-  fiejnments and his articles have been  much sought after   by tbe   leading  agricultural aud horticultural  journals, while   his   work in connection  with   the   experiments   in shipping  soft     fruits    long   distances   have  stamped   him  as  an  expert whose  advice   is always   heeded   by those  who would better serve the markets.  His lecture here proved to be highly  instruction, and the ranchers  of the  valley   will   profit   greatly   by his  timely words of advice  it the conclusion of the meeting  the speakers were tendered a hearty  vote of thanks.  George, where he went several weeks  ago for a vacation. When a young  man King Albert visited Hill' for  more than a month and travelled  over the Northwest and Pacific  const. Shortly after the war broke  out Hill sent King Albert 825,000.  A commission recently visited the  United States from Belgium ' to  study plans for reconstructing the  country after the war. The commission made' a -special trip from  Chicago to St. Paul to see" Mr. Hill.  Those who know Mr. Hill's close  friendship and sympathy for King  Albert, say he will take up the task  of helping to straighten out the  finances of the stricken country.

CROWDED OFF  The local stockholders of the Little Bertha mine, which is now being worked under lease by Jack . St.  Clair, inspected that property last  Wednesday.  The following mining men of  British'Colnmbia have been named  honorary vice presidents of the Spo  kane Mining Men's club: Hon. L. A.  Campbell and M. E. Pureed, Ross-  land; Fred A. Starkey and John J.  Malone, Nelson; W. E Zwicky;  Kaslo; J. M. Harris, Sandon; Geo.  H. Aylard, New'Denver; Montagu  Davis, Silverton; Neil'Gething, Slo-  can City; W. M. Archibald, Trail;  Dr. C.

Inspector Thomas Cunningham,  of Vancouver, in.charge of the fruit  pests branch of the department of  agriculture, died last week at his  home in that city.  The annual convention of the  Farmers'Institutes of British Columbia will be heid in Victoria lrom  Wednesday to Friday, March 8 to  10.  " John Linklater, while at work in  the Granby mine at Phoenix last  Friday, fell down a raise 186 feet  and was instantly killed. He leaves  a wife and four children in Noith  Vancouver.  The" annual convention of ��������� the  British Columbia Stockbreeders' association will be held in Victoria on  March 13 and 14.  Married  The marriage of Robert F. Petrie  to Miss Kate Davis was solemnized  on VVednrsday morning at the home  of the bride's brother, Jefferson  Davis, in the presence of a large  number' of invited gueots The  ceremony was performed by Rev. P.  C. Hayman, of Holy Trinity  church. Mr. Petrie is one Grand  Forks' pioneer business men, and  the. bride has been a resident of the  city for a number of years. Both  of them have a wide circle of friends,  all of whom wish them a long and  prosperous married life.  Mr. and Mrs. Petrie left immediately after the ceremony for Spokane on tbe Great Northern. Their  honeymoon trip will extend as far  east as Denver, Col., where Mr.  Petrie's mother is living.  Mr. Genin, of Danville, and Alex  Peteison, of this city, this week  shipped a car of ore to the Trail-  smelter from their claim oh LeFleur  mountain, near Danville. A sample  of peacock copper ore from this  property is on exhibition in this  city. It is declared by mining men  to be the finest specimen of ore ever  seen here.  The furnace at tbe Greenwood  smelter had to be banked for twenty-  four hours this weekowing toashort-  age of coke.  The Sun has on   many former occasions  stated   that it will print no  communications    except   over   the  writer's real   name.   We   now wish  to emphasize this statement by saying that, this is   one  of  the reasons  why a certain  communication  does  not appear in  this  week's  issue  of  The Sun.    But even   when   letters  are  properly   signed,  no  guarantee  can be given that they   will  appear  in print.    Communications discussing live topics of public  interest  in  a   dispassionate  manner are always  welcomed,   but   when  the   writers  attack   the motives or characters of  private individuals or  corporations,  their missiles  invariably   find  their  way to the waste basket.   If there is  any "roasting" to be done, the   editor feels qualified to do it himself.  A man never tells his wife to  keep the cange. He knows she will,  anyhow.  J. R. Kesson, formerly provincial  policeman   in   Greenwood, was   re  cently killed at the front  in France.  The twenty sixth annual meeting  of the British Columbia Fruit Growers' association will be held in the  Empress hotel, .Victoria, on March  6 and 7, when many matters of  vital importance to the industry will  be discussed by the delegates from  all the fruit growing sections of the  proviuce.  Spokane mining men are making  extensive plans for the annual  Northwest Mining convention,which  will be held in that city March 20  to 25, under the auspices of the  Mining Men's club, Spokane Engi  neering and Technical association  and the chamber of commerce.

Not a dramatic show of   any merit  worth   mentioning has   visited our  city since  the  movies  became  the  craze, and there is no prospect of an  improvement   in   the  near future.  We   have   had   a few   shows with  ranting barnstormers as actors, with  an occasional imported  melodrama,  usually-depicting the baser  side  of  human life. These are as poor brain  food as the movies.    But   until   the  movies  have  run   their-course that  is  the   only   class   of  actors   and  dramas the public will get.

Daily trains will be running from  Nelson to Vancouver via the Hope  cutoff over the Kettle Valley line  early in June. The run between  Grand Forks to Vancouver will take  about twenty-two hours.

The provincial department of, agriculture has now on the presses bulletin No. 68, entitled "Diseases and  Pests for Cultivated Plants in British  Columbia and Their Control," which  has been prepared by Messrs. J. W.  Eastham, B.Sc., provincial plant  pathologist and entomologist, and  Max H. Ruhmann, assistant entomologist. This bulletin will be a long  felt want, because the authors have  spent much time on experimental  work in British Columbia, and are  thoroughly conversant with the problems of the fruit growers and orch-  ardists, There is also a short article  on sprays and spraying, by Bon Hoy,  the assistant horticulturist for the  Okanagan district, which has appeared in print before, but as this is  such an important part of the work of  the fruit ������rowers, it is reprinted in  this bulletin. Requests for this bulletin    should    be sent   to the depart-  The desperate efforts of Mr. Bowser's newspaper at Nelson to elect the  government candidate in the Ross-  land by election by making specious  but false promises, and by misrepresenting the opposition candidate,  shows how afraid the government of  the day is of a strong opposition.  Mr. Bowser knows that an active opposition at the next session of the  house would bring out revelations  in connection with government deals  beside which the Manitoba scandals would appear insignificant.

A Queer Business  Fifth Universities' Company  Experienced  in Saskatche-  by  Very Successful  Year  Live Stock Branch  wan  At tlie end of November tlie activities  of the  live stock  branch   of  the  Saskatchewan department of agriculture in connection with tho stock distribution  policy,  had  been  concluded.  The work this year has been carried  ou   most   successfully,  and   only   the  lack  of  funds  prevents  its   continuation  during the entire  winter,   all  ot  the   ������50,000   voted   for   this   purpose  having now been expended.  There is au increase in the number  of cattle supplied this year. In HOJ'l a their  total of 4'\'-'< head were supplied, and  this year, the number is 400. While  the number of milk cows distributed  is not as great as last year, it is very  gratifying to find that the largest increase has been in the number ot!  western grade females and pure-bred  bulls supplied. In .1014 about 75 head  of western-bred grade heifers were  distributed, while this year over 180  were sold. The number of bulls lias  risen front 24 in 101-1 to SO this year.  Tlie reason for this splendid increase  was due, no doubt, to the fact thai an  option calling for only a quarter cash  deposit, instead of the fifty, per cent,  iu force before, was authorized early  in the spring and added to the sale regulations. In no way can the .quality  and standard of the Saskatchewan  cattle breeding industry be raised  more quickly, ���������and,'more.-.cheaply than  by the introduction of high class,  pure-bred sires, and it is believed that  next year's farmers and stock breeders in even greater numbers will avail  themselves of this opportunity. Only  about thirty of the bulls', were bought  in the east, the rest being purchased  from'���������local'.breeder's in the west. Thus  the department is helping,-not-' only  ihe individual in search of a purebred sire, but it is also finding..a'market for the western breeders of purebred stock at remunerative prices.  Amongst other places, the districts  around Rush Lake, Debden, Margo,  Kerrobert and Kindersley received  carload shipments of cattle. In Kerrobert, where a new creamery was established this year, approximately  sixty head of milk cows were sold,  ���������while Kindersley received about five  carloads of, \vestem-bredgrade heif-  -.:.<: vs. :'���������,.-. ��������� .:������������������  That the action of the department  in distributing live stock is appreciated and thought well of by . the  Saskatchewan farmer is shown by the  numerous enquiries received now by  rhe live stock branch, which, unfortunately cannot be filled at present,  but are being held over until next  spring.  Regarding the work with sheep, the  increase has been more than fourfold.  Last year about 480 grade range ewes  and  12  pure-bred    rams  were  distributed under the live stock sale regulations.   This year about 2,200 head of  ewes    and about 40   rams were supplied.   No   doubt this phenomenal increase was due to the fact that there  is an excellent market for both  wool  and mutton at the present time which  makes the raising of sheep a very lucrative business, and which  farmers from all parts of  wan to start with a small  i;,200  sheep  were supplied  ���������lots from  20    to 100, and  tered  over the whole province,  quite  a   few  being shipped  into" the northwestern part.  While it. is not likely that'the price  .-for wool will remain at the high level  which it now holds, once the war is  over there is no reason to believe  that it will drop back to the figures  prevailing a few years ago, 9c to lie  per pound.  There is no branch of the live stock-  industry which needs more encouragement titan the raising of sheep.  Confronted with the very serious weed  problem, the slogan of our prairie  farmers and wheat growers has become "Sheep on every farm," and j thc  they will maintain their reputation of | one  having a "golden hoof," after first  keeping the siiineinrfallow clean, and  then gleaning the stubble fields in tbe  fall.  One gratifying feature from the  live stock point of view is Ihe fact  that although Saskatchewan has boon  blessed with one of the heaviest and.  largesf crops ever harvested, farmers  on the whole are not losing sight of  the live stock end. and quite it few  onciuiries and applications for stock  are now being received from the districts, from which reports of the highest yields have been received, viz.:  The southwestern district of Saskatchewan, on the Weyburn-Shaunavon  line, anil the Goose Lake country. This  would indicate that the prairie farmer  after having garnered one of the best  grain crops in years,   is prepared and  gpipes in  Soul-Stirring  Notes of thc Pipes That  Urge the  Kilted Warriors on to  Victory  "As   the   men   bombed     their   way  along iho German  Irenehes a:  the   Black  first   rush,   two   of  pipers stood upright on the parapet  under a terrific fire and played "'i-lie-  land Laddie,' the regimental charge  of this gallant.corps. They stood in a  terrific storm of lire, with bombs  bursting till round them, and filing  Highland battle air to the  breeze, until one piper fell dead and  thc other  was  wounded."  This was what happened during the  Brtish attack on the German lines  north of i-a Basse some weeks ago,  and ii is one of, the many such epics  that have been recorded for at least  two centuries.  It is almost a tradition of our Highly land regiments Ihat the pipers have  largely contributed to pvcry victory  gained by their countrymen, not only  by the animating strains of 'their  music, but by the coolness and self-  possession of the pipers in the hour  of danger.  When the 42nd J-Jiglilanders, who  formed part of the attacking party  that captured Fort Washington,' in  1777, scrambled up the precipice determined to have their \own share of  glory, the first to reach the summit  was one of the pipers, who, as soon  as- he had made good his footing, began to play. He continued sounding  his war notes until at last his body,  riddled with bullets, fell from point to  point, till it reached the bottom-of the  rock mangled and disfigured.  Again, at Waterloo, where the Camerons : earned imperishable fame, it  was Piper Kenneth Mackay who  specially distinguished himself. In the  thick of the fighting-that raged round  the farmhouse of La Haye Sainte, the  Camerons charged the French columns. The. enemy's cavalry came to  the support o������ the baffled infantry,  and the Camerons formed square.  And, while the.Cuirassiers cams thundering on;' Piper Mackay stepped outside the square of bayonets, am!,'  marching around, played the stirring  "Cogadh na Sithe."  It  was  the  strains  of  the  that brought life and hope to  sieged  garrison  in  Lucknow;  tlie   inspiration   of  the' heroic  influenced  Saskatche-  flock. The  mostly in  were scat-  struggling up the ramparts of Tel-el-  Keibir that goaded the British on to  victory; and it was Piper Findlater's  playing of the "Cock o' the North" to  the Gallant Gordons, while he lay on  the ground badly wounded, that carried the heights of Dargai and won  for him the Victoria Cross.  In the present campaign the pipers  of the Black Watch have several  times ' dstinguished themselves when  playing the "kilted warriors" into action.  It-'was at Loos that Piper David  Simpson of the 2nd Battalion Black  Watch, died on the field of- glory-  "All through the battle roar," wrote  one of his comrades, "rang the soul-  stirring notes of the charge of the  piper, at once a stimulus and a rallying call to every man wearing the red  hackle.  "Three lines of German trenches  fell to that fierce assault. Then the  command came down the line to have  a try for a fourth.  "Piper Simpson at once got his  pipes in position, turned to his company with the cry, 'Come on, boys!'  and"striking up the battle tune of the  Black Watch, again ran, playing towards the foe. Ha took ten or  twelve paces, a bullet through the  breast, brought him down, and, with  the exultant yell of his triumphant  comrades in his ears, he died."  Describing  the   inspiring  scene   of  passage  a  kilted  battalion  along  of  the  rock  roads    of Flanders  with   the   bagpipes   shirling  defiantly,  a   British  correspondent  at  the  front  wrote thus:  "The  drone  of  thc  pipes  seem   to I  rouse a  cold,  calculating devil  under i  the   tartan.     It    is    not  altogether a '  pleasant sight, to see a Scottish regi- j  ment being played  into the trendies, j  You   can   see    that    there   is   killing j  ahead;  see if in the grim deterniina-1  tion  of  the   men,   the   thrust  of  the  jaw, the grip of the knotted hands on  rill3 butts, and yon feel that the wail  of the  pipes  ahead  is    a  battle    cry  fiercely urging them on.  " 'Mon,' said a sergeant from Bum-  fries, to whom I mentioned this matter of bagpipe inspiration, 'mon,  when T hear 'Th' Cock o' th' North.' I  could kill yon Germans wi' me bare  hatinds.'

That is no haphazard guess  but accurate slaiisrics gathered from  Vliblic accounts  by the American   Is-  sue Newspaper showing that taxes in  license   states   are   nearly   seven   dollars per capita higher than in prohibition states.  Supposing that it is-only half of  that in Canada ii amounts to $.17.50  to the average family of i'we. Why  should I be compelled to pay an increase lax to support- a business that  J abhor? If the traffic had to support  the paupers, orphans and criminals  which it causes they would not <-et so  rich and r would not have to p.iy so  much taxes. One hundred-mil lion'dollars wasted in drink, twenty-eight  million increase taxation and thousands of paupers, orphans, -'criminals,  etc., that is the work of the saloon.  Why should it be allowed to "exist?  Several so called hotelkeepers say  they will have to go out of business  which is an acknowledgment, that  they are not hotelkeepers. at all but  saloon keepers." It is surely time that  the hotel business be separated from  the business of making drunkards.

Water, rising-through  the soil by capillarity, brings with it  salts. These are washed clown without-  harm in regions of rainfalls, but in  the west, where rainfall is light and  evaporation is excessive, the alkali  remains on the surface, retarding the  growth of the crops.  - White alkali may readily be washed  out of the soil by irrigation, but black  alkali, which corrodes plant tissues,  is handled with more difficulty. If  the expense is not too great, black alkali may be treated Avith gpnisum,  which  changes it to the white form.  George W. Graves, of the Idaho Ex:  periment station, ^advises the growing  of a crop to shade the'surface of'the  ground,  in  some  cases,  thereby preventing evaporation.    Cultivation will  also help.

Facts About Rifles  No two of the European armies  now engaged iu war are equipped  with the same rifle. The French and  Austrian forces are using the largest  calibre instruments found on the continent, while"the latter, at the sacrifice of velocity is employing the heaviest bullet. Tho German rifle attains  the greatest muzzle velocity, but this  is partly on account of the fact that,  it uses the lightest projectile shot by  any small arm in Europe.  The longest rifle in service belongs  to the Russian equipment, while tlie  French have the longest bayonet, a  thing which gives their weapon the  greatest total length, and therefore an  advantage in charging. The shortest  gun is that of the British army, and  witlt the bayonet added the insltii-  ment is still shorter than Close of any  countries excopt Belgium and Austria. Owing to the small size of Ihe  gun, however, it may be handled wtih  ease.  W. N. U. 1086  Monsieur:  For lo days in tlie month of January 1 was sintering with pain of  rheumatism in the foot.

"The coffee is  morning. Didn't  cook about  it?"  "Yes, I did,  but  It that way."  won I  you  again  speak   to  this  the  she says .she likes  Exceptional interest attaches this  year -to tlie annual report of Canada's leading bank, and the addresses  delivered at the annual meeting by  the president and the general manager. They afford an insight into the  financial consequences of a year of  war on the country generally, and into the outlook for tne future, as interpreted by men who have every opportunity to judge it.  -Mr. Ii. V, Meredith, the president,  pointed'out'that the effect of the war  on1. Canadian "trade had been less injurious than had been expected, and  that this year's bountiful harvest may  not only be expected to stimulate current trade, but to attract renewed  emigration to Canada.  Tlie annual report shows the Bank'  of Montreal in a position ot unprecedented strength. With assets of  S?.'!02,9S0,55-l���������an increase for .the year  of !f:J8,S00,]^S���������it takes rank with'the  most powerful banking institutions  iu the world. Of this enormous sum,  no less than $170,007,568 is in cash  and liquid assets. This is over Gi per  cent, of the bank's total public liabilities���������a ratio whose significance will  bo better understood wnen it is compared with 55.4 per cent, last year,  and a little less tnan 50 per cent,  (considered a high proportion in normal times)  iu 101 a.  While holding so large a proportion  of tho bank's assets in liquid form  does not tend to large profits, it is a  source of great strength not only to  the bank, but to the whole of Canada, in these trying  times.  The profits for the  were most gratifying  ?2,108,G31, they provided for the usual  quarterly dividends and two 1% bonuses oii-the capital of $16,000,000, the  war tax on bank note circulation,  ?127,347, and left over $60,000 to be  added to the profit and loss account,  bringing the balance of the latter up  to SI,293,952. This, of course, is in  addition'--to tlie rest account of $16,-  000,000���������equal to the capital'.  Owing to the reduced volume of  commercial business in the country,  the current loans dropped from $108,-  S45.332 in 1914 to ?9li,O7S,506: Loans  to municipalities, on the other hand,  show, an increase of over two millions,  reaching   the   figure   of   $11,203,472.  One of the most striking and important" features of the report is the  remarkable increase in deposits.  Those bearing no interest have increased during the year from ������4^,689,-  031 to $75,745/(29, while interest bearing deposits have grown to $160,277,-  083���������a, total increase of $38,800,138.  Though this is partly accounted for by  special transactions, it must be regarded as highly satisfactory, and an  especial'mark of public confidence.  In reviewing thci year, ��������� the president laid special, stress on the record  harvest in the west, where, a greatly  increased area tinder cultivation has  given the highest average yield in the  History of the country. The estimated value of thc grain crop of  Manitoba. Alberta and Saskatchewan  he placed at four hundred million dollars���������a sum which could be depended  upon to liquidate much indebtedness  and stimulate current trade.  Referring to the remarkable change  in Canada's position, from a. debtor to  a creditor nation, Mr.'Meredith said:  "In the seven -months ending October 31st, i913, the value of exports  of Canadian products was $245,550,000  and iu the same period of 1914 was  $226,757\000, while this year in these  seven mouths we have exported Canadian products of the value of $326,-  430,000, or $100,000,000 more than last  year, and the great crop surplus has  still to go forward.  "Comparing the foreign trade of  Canada for the 7 months period ending  with October, imports have decliiii it  from $390,544,000 in 1913 to $253,107,-  000 in 1915. while exports of domestic  products, as I lave said, have risen  from $245,550,000 to $326,430,000, an  adverse balance of $145,000,000 being  converted into a favorable balance of  $73,323,000, or a betterment in resipeet  of foreign trade of no less than $218,-  000,000 within the short space of two  years."  Taking a prudently optimistic view  of the future. Mr. Meredith said:  "The position of Canada is a highly  favored one. with an assured future  of growth, development and general  prosperity. At present, however, we  live iu the shadow of the great war,  to which all else must be subservient.  What its duration will be, and the  position in which its termination will  find us. can be matter of thc merest,  conjecture. The vast armies now engaged in the struggle cannot be kept  in tlie field indefinitely. The financial  factor is daily assuming increased importance, ���������nrt in this respect the advantage is unquestionably with Great  Britain  and  her allies.  "After the wr.r. a readjustment of  Irade conditions is to be expected.  The flood of wealth which has attended the export of munitions and war  supplies must, of necessity be largely  curtailed, and a new set. of problems  will have to be faced. As I have said  on former occasions when I have had  the pleasure of addressing you, if  economy be exercised to meet the increased burden of taxation, of which  we must hear our share, and the production of export able articles increased to thc utmost extent, to protect our  gold supply and minimize our borrowings, and if we keep strong in working  capital, then no matter what difficulties thc future may have in store for  us, we can look forward to them with  a degree of complacency. Our agricultural   resources   and   undeveloped  Lightning Rods Prevent Fire  Experience   Has   Shown     That     Good  Results  Come  From  Their Use  lit connection with the general  campaign for a reduction of the enoi-  mous fire loss in Canada, the following statements, from authorities, giving actual experience with lightning-  rod protection will be appreciated:  Mr. It. R. Cameron, secretary-  treasurer of the East Williams Mutual Fire Insurance Co., Ailsa Craig.  Ont., .under date of Sept. 25, 1915,  says: "With this, company, the principal cause of fire losses is lightning.  During the last six years',-.wo have  paid 54 claims for damage by lightning and only six claims for damage  by lire otherwise started. In our case  (insuring farm buildings) lightning  rods seem to be the practical  remedy."  31 r. W. G. YVilloughby, secretary-  treasurer ot the Lanibton Mutual Fire  Insurance Co., of Watford. Ont., says:  "Lightning has been the principle  cause of our losses, and, it the amount  paid on stock v.;ere added to the  amount paid for losses on building's  by lightning, it would be more than  fifty per cent. We have not. had a  rodded building burned for years, and  the damage to them is very small���������-  none in 1914 nor in 1915 so far (Sept.  30, 19151. We make a difference in  rates in favor of rodded buildings, and  over half are rodded."  Bert B. Buckley, Ohio State Fire  Marshal, in his August Bulletin says:  "During these three months, lightning is credited with 6S fir.es, with a  resulting loss of $9.1,165. In every case  the buildings srruck were not equipped with lightning rods. Not a single,  fire was reported where the building  was rodded; intact, it is very seldom  indeed, that such a case is entered on  the records."  In the face of the foregoing evidence, and in view of the small cost of  installing lightning rod equipment, it  would seem advisable for farmers to  equip their property with this protection and also to the ad\antii,e of iu-  Miunip companies to give a preference in ptemmni tates to nsks so  ptofectcd  DANGEROUS  PLEURISi  ALWAYS BEGINS THIS  WAY  Speediest Cure is 'Nerviline'  Ouch; that stab-like pain������iri the side  is like a hot knife blade in the rii>s:  Probably got overheated���������cooled  too fast���������now there is congestion,  tightness, such soreness you can't  draw a long breath.

German Morality Debased by the War  The latest German papers contain  a chorus of lamentation over the debasing effect of the war on-German  morality, especially among the young.  The Cologne Gazette speaks of the  "truly terrifying picture" presented  by the increase of crime among young-  people in the industrial districts.  The Magdeburg Zcitung denounces  usury, immorality, licentiousness and  degenerate love of luxury that prevails, and invokes the "Lord God of  German history, to aid in preventing  calamity from overwhelming the  country."

Campbell, director of the Dominion forestry branch,  Canada's present supply of commercial timber has been variously estimated to be between five hundred and  seven hundred billion feet, board measure, and to cover an area of approximately 170,000,000 acres. This  estimate of quantity and area refers  only to timber of commercial value  as saw timber. It does not include  pulpwood, firewood, tic and pole material nor small timber of any description, although this has undoubtedly a very large commercial value.

"You will find some in my sewing basket," she  said. The warden soon had the cut covered. At the  church, in assisting with the collection, he noticpd  everyone smiled as he passfd the plate, and some of i.he  session of the legislature will require close  watching. The present so-called "business"  administration is no improvement over the  McBride-Bowser government, which engineered the Dominion Trust legislation and the  Kitsilano Indian reserve  land   deal.    It is, in  &'younger people laughed outright    Very much annoyed,  fact,   the  same old  gang.  The dangling  of  cabinetportfoliosin by-elections usually dazzles  the electors. It is to be hoped that tomorrow  they will be strong enough to resist the bait.  As a matter of fact, the distinction of being  represented by a. cabinet minister is of no advantage to a constituency. It is, rather, a  disadvantage. Obviously, if he faithfully attends to his duties as a cabinet minister, he  must necessarily neglect the needs of his district. Yale-Cariboo is represented in the federal government by a cabinet minister, and  yet, setting aside the honor which usually attaches to such representation, few people will  say that this distinction has materially benefited the district.  he asked a friend if there was ������nvthin_-wrong with his  appearance.

It is rampant in  every department.    It governs   the award of  contracts, employment, the purchase  of supplies, the  disposal  of resources, the  issue of  licenses, the acquisition of Indian reserves, the  collection of taxes, and  even the administration of the law.   It is the soil in which Beaver  clubs and other noxious growths flourish.    It  is the foundation   of  the   political   machine  which has become a deadly menace to the weU  fare of the province.    Its pernicious activities  have not been confined  to federal and provincial politics.    They . extend  to municipal administration.    A short time ago they ran riot  in some of the eivic services; it was impossible  for men to be appointed to the police force, or  for those already  appointed  to be promoted,  unless   they  became  members of the Beaver  club.    There can be only one outcome of such  a wholesale and unscrupulous abuse of political power.    Efficiency and  honesty disappear,  the country's reputation abroad becomes tarnished,  industry  languishes  and  the  general  public suffer.���������Victoria Times.  It is time for a change. It is time the McBride-Bowser political system was cleaned  out root and branch. Smash the machine which  almost ruined Manitoba and is trying to ruin  this province in order that a handful of politicians and their influential friends may benefit.  ���������Victoria Times.  History repeats itself Almost immediately after  Mon. Martin Burrell's defeat in his first contest for a  se-it in the federal hou^e for Yale Cariboo against the  late Dunlin Ro-is. he received an appointment from the  Mo Bride Bowser government as a "lecturer in the department of agriculture" H'S territory was Yale Cariboo.  Now announcement is made that J T. Robinson, Conservative nominee for Cariboo, has received a commis  sion in the 172nd regiment, Rocky Mountain Rangers,  for recruiting purposes, and again his territory is the  onstituency of Cariboo.���������Vancouver Sun.  Kitsilano Reserve Suit Decision  The written judgments of the judges of the supreme  court of Canada in the suit of Cole vs. Read', over tbe  dietrituition of the commission in the Kitsilano reserve  deal, have been handed down at Ottawa. The court, in  finding that the plaintiff, Joseph Cole, a ha If-breed Indian residing 'at Mission, is entitled to ������20.000 of the  ���������S-10,000 share received by his solicitor, Hamilton Read,  indulges in numerous caustic comments'on the transaction. Mr. Justice Tdington go^s so far as to suggest that  the attorney general might have a case to recover from  Messrs. Read and H. O. Alexander the entire amount  of the SSO.000 commission they received.  ��������� After outlining th<> cas^ for the parties, the chief justice holds that "Read should be held as a trustee in  view of his professional relations with Cole. He would  never have been brought into tbe transaction had it not  been f���������r Cole."  Mr. Justice Tdington says that any other view except  that Cole had assisted to get the deal ready for completion "must imply that the lavish commission the government allowed to be included in the price was little  shorf of scandalous in light of the marvelous celerity  and unanimity with which the Indians got through  with the pow-wow and the signing of the surrender. It  ���������eems inconceivable that such an afternoon's work alone  could he so handsomely compensated for, unless upon  the hypothesis that much labor had preceded it.  "Disagreeable surmises may arise in one's mind in  surveying the unpleasant features of the whole transaction,! but I can not see how we can wpll do otherwise  than assent to the reasoning upon which the chief jus-  ticj and Mr. Justice Irving proceeded in the court below If the parties thereto and Mr. Alexander, magnifying their importance, or the importance of their services, have misUd the crown by making misrepresentations to the attorney general as to the value of their services, then it might'be that none of them is entitled to  anything in law. If it turns out as the result of this  litigation that such a surmise is well founded and the  crown has beep incipos-d upon, tl e ruredy lies with the  attorney-general," adds Mr Justice -Tdington.  Mr. Justice Anglin, n supporting the conclusions of  his brother judge?, says: "Read's course of conduct in  this matter, having regard to his professional stains and  his relation to tl- e plaintiff, was indefensible. But still  more amazing, if the story told by both .parties to this  action be true, was the assurance said to have been  given by a member of the government of British Columbia that if the twenty Indians interested in the Kitsilano reserve could be got to gi^e options for the acquisition of their rights in it for a payment to them of  $10,000 aprice, the government would, purchase such  options for 8300,000."  Mr. Justice Brodeur punts out that Cole first called  upon Hon. W J Bnwper and was referred by him to  Mr. Read, and the relations at the outspt were those of  solicitor and client and wore nevpr terminated.  The case was argupd at Ottawa in November last bv  J.

Two    reasons    will  suffice.  Agricultural ��������� .education   should   begin  in the public school because that is  the  logical place  to begin all education.    They  generally  call  it  nature  study in-the lower grades.and elementary' agriculture     in     the   last   two  grades, and  they may  call it almost  what thoy like so long as our educators give* it a    place    commensurate  with the importance of our paramount  profession.    Oh,   yes,  a  girl .teacher  may not  teach  much  scientific agriculture, but it is not the sum total of  agricultural facts  taught that  counts  ���������iL is the trend of mind induced in  the pupil. Develop his interest in, and  respect for the profession of his father, and when he is-older lie--will not,  depart from it.    In tho name of common' sense,   then,   do   not    talk    as  though the young girl    teacher 'were  trying     to  teach  agriculture   to- tho  whole district.    Her -jusiness is with  the school, and  she knows'her business much better than most self-constituted  critics   can  teach  it  to  her.  Just acquire  a smile,  and  help that  girl teacher when she wants a school  garden,  and  you  will  have  had  the  privilege   of   helping  in   one   of  the  most responsible works in the world.  Then, too, this agriculture in the public   schools   is   the  surest   means   to  check the much deplored drift'to the  cities.;  When/the boy sees  farming  receive its proper recognition in his  school, when he feels that it is not  '.necessary to leave the farm  to rise  in the world, he will 0>e less apt to  join the ranks of those who move toward the bright lights.   This "back to  the-land" cry is all right as far as it  goes, but not many will  come back  unless a too prolonged diet of husks  may send  them  back    to    see  how-  chances are for the fatted calf. Let us  try to hold the lads, yes, and lasses,  too, who are now known only as pub*  lie school pupils."���������Address by Deaa  Howes.  President   Wilson   Declares   That   it  Will   be   no   Patched-up   Affair  'President Wilson has expressed the  opinion that there will be no "'patched  up peace" following the European  war. In a comprehensive and'forceful address before the Columbus  chamber of commerce he urged American business men to mobilize their  resources in order that the United  States might be prepared to play a  more important part in the world's  affairs, and bring about justice after  the present war. ���������  The president defended his Mexican policy, and touched on the attitude of the United States toward the  European war.  "When the present great conflict in  Europe is over the world is going to  wear a different aspect," Mr. Wilson  declared. "I don't believe there is  going to be any patched-up peace. I  believe that thou&������tful men of every  country and of every sort Will insist that- Mien we get peace again we  shall have guarantees, that it will remain, and that the instrumentalities  of justice shall be exalted above the  instrumentalities of force.-  "I believe that the spirit, which has  hitherto reigned'in.tlie hearts of Americans and in like people everywhere  in the world wilt assert itself "once for  all in international-affairs, and that  if America preserves her poise, preserves her self-possession', .'���������.���������:preserves,  her attitude of friendliness towards  all the world, she may have the! privilege, in one form or another, of being  the mediating influence' by which  these things may be induced."

Help the Farmer  Live  Stock  >ath  Starving   Men   Into   Treachery  A convoy of incapacitated soldiers  released from German military prisons arrived in-.England recently.  Two of the Irish soldiers among  them told the Daily - Mail of efforts  made by Sir Roger Casement to persuade the Irish prisoners to join the  Germans.  "Sir Roger," they said, "visited the  camp at Lemberg, and said: -.Vow  is the chance to strike a blow for  Ireland. What has England done  for you?" He promised 'all kinds of  advantages to be derived from joining the Germans."  The narrator. Corpora! ^lahoney, of  the Irish Rides, said:  "We were  being starved.

Well, the wife kept on after me till at last 1 said I would  talk with Mr. Marnoclt about how it  was done. I put in an application,  and sure enough after a few days I  got a letter saying I could go ahead  and buy four . cows.

"Not that they were needed in front  of our trenches" We could have kept  the Germans back without them, but  if .it had not been for the barbed  wire in front of the German trenches  we would have been across the Rhine  by now.

Opportunities Presented by the Work'in Hand  How the industry of agriculture  may be stimulated for the good of  Canada, for the good of the empire,  and to help and heal and resuscitate  that'large portion of the world now  suffering untold miseries because of  the war was the subject matter of an  address before a meeting of the Economic, commission, at Ottawa recently,  by Sir George Foster, minister of  trade and com mere0.  Sir George declared that the war  had brought many changes, and one  of these was the ([uickened sense of  public duty awakened throughout  the .country. ,. Canada had suffered  ami sacrificed to some extent in the  war/but the staple and basic industry, agriculture, had been enormously stimulated with.regard, to the  marketing of the crops.' The question was how the distances could be  bridged most economically.  "We cannot," he said, "cut down  the miles, but it is possible to cut  down the cost of transportation and  tho "profits of those who. intervene  belwesn the producer and the ulli-  .matc consumer.  "The   matter  of  rate    by   sett  and  land is another question  consideration," he said."  lack railways.

"As an. adjunct of the agricultural  industry any light which you can  throw on this question will be greatly appreciated. The next ��������� question  is that of immigration, or xatner  settlement on agricultural lands,  What shall bo done for our returned  soldiers? How can these ^ virile  young men be plat^gd on tlie great  wild lands of the Dominion for agti-  cultural and rural development?  They' will have to be settled and  guided when settled.  "It is up to you."  In   conclusion     Sir  . George    said:  "This is just about the biggest'opportunity and just about the biggest  work that has ever been entrusted  to any commission. Everybody seems  to lliink^tli'iiigs will be ���������different after  tlie war. Everybody is asking, what  will be our attitude toward the great  basic industry, agriculture, on  which all other industries depend for  their success. I don't think that the  government has been niggardly to it  in the past, but there is a feeling  abroad that still more is expected.  I welcome you gentlemen to your  labors. The government will placo  everything at your disposal which  will be of advantage, and the country will give you every opportunity  to work out something which will  be of advantage."  ������������  j Gallant Gunners ly^  ! Canadian  Acted as   Machine  Gun  Tri-.  j pod    While   Comrades   Poured  ' Bullets   Into   Enemy'  How a Canadian soldier turned himself into a'human machine gun tripod  while his officer fired' two belts of  cartridges into the ranks of the Germans, how the gallant First Battalion  went into the light at Givenchy and  was almost annihilated, a*nd what a  splendid spirit of confidence -dominated the actions of the- British soldiers  in-'France, were vividly recounted by  Corporal G. A. Smith, of the First  Battalion, now in Halifax, after six  months in the trenches with the First  Canadian Division. Corporal Smith  reached Canada recently and is now  in Halifax with a party of 110 wounded  and sick soldiers, nearly all of whom  have spent a period in the British  trenches in France. The wounds are  usually shrapnel or bullets. A word  of significance was carried in the'  words of Corporal Smith, who said', in  answer to a question regarding the  wounds of the men. "One of tho  rarest things in France or Belgium is  a British soldier with a bayonet  wound. The Germans have such a  fear of 'the British cold steel that  they scamper like pigs when a light  af. close quarters is threatened."  Corporal Smith continued: "Of all  my experiences at the front, the last  charge of the first battalion at Given-  GOOD  SERVICE OF THE BRITISH   FISHING CREWS  Population of Ireland  Now .Shows Increase  A  Novelty for the Old Land���������Marked  Decrease in Pauperism Lately  The latest census figure-for Ireland  show an increasing population. However common this may be in America, or in the other councnes of Europe, this feature is for Ireland an  agreeable novelty. For the quarter  ended the :30th of September last the  number of births in Ireland was =i7,-  770, a rate of 20.8 per thousand, and  the deaths 14,070, a rate of 13.4 per  thousand..- There were only 3,511 emigrants, -so that the net increase in  population is 0.50S.  ���������It is the decrease in emigration  which has turned the scale. The situation'might be even more satisfactory  were it not for the heavy death rate  of children under a year old. About  one Irish child in every dozen dies  bsfore it has reached the age of  twelve 'months. Leinster and Ulster  have the predominance in this respect, in them one child in every  seven or eight diss an infant, in Con-  naught only one child in every fifteen.  Dublin and Belfast no doubt account  for this, for poverty stricken Con-  naught has more fresh air than can.  be found in the cities, especially in  Dublin, which has a system of tenement houses, where scores of families  live in one house, and often more  than one family in a single room.  That Ireland is a less'distressful  country than it used to be, and is now  on the mend, is further evident from  the statistics of pauperism. Here  there has been a very marked decrease.

Canada's Offer Accepted'  Dominion Gives $50,000 to Anglo-Russian  Hospital  The offer of the Canadian government of ?50,000 towards the establishment, of an Anglo-Russian hospital  has been accepted, a cable to that effect having been received from Majcr-  Gencral Lord Cheylesmore, chairman  of the executive committee in London.  The money has been forwarded.  The offer of the Canadian government  reads:  "My��������� ministers understand that provision is being made in Great Britain,  under the patronage of her majesty,  Queen Alexandra, for an Anglo-Rus-  sian hospital. They learn that equipment and maintenance of one bed for  one year is estimated at one hundred  pounds. Aly government, desiring to  assist (herein and thus to express  Canadian appreciation of the valor  and heroism of the Russian armies,  hope you will inform the government  of Russia and Lord Cheylesmore,  chairman of tho committe, that Canada will contribute A." 10,000 for the  purpose which,������aecording to the committee's estimate, will equip and  maintain one hundred    beds for one ; answered the lieutenant  year."  Queen Alexandra on being informed  of the gift, caused the following letter  to be sent to Lord Cheylesmore:  "I have shown, your letter of yesterday to Queen Alexandra and "her  majesty is much gratified to hear of  the splendid contribution of ������10,000  from the Canadian governjiient to the  Anglo-Russian hospital. Her majesty-  knows how pleased her sister, the  Empress Marie Feodoravna, will be to  hear of this generous help from the  people of Canada."  Chy will remain longest in my mem  ory. 1 cannot tell you how many men  we lost in four hours, in my battalion  alone:"  ��������� "Watch your watches, cried the officers, that meant'- that a mine was  being exploded in so many minutes  and every .man with a wrist watch  stood tense watching the second hand  so as to be ready for the concussion  when it came. This is to guard  against shock. Wc blew their trench  sky high and the force was so great  that the parapets of our own front  line were destroyed. Then we were  over the parapets and took their  trench very easily. Not stopping  there we charged the second line and  took it with 57 prisoners. Wc had  lost many owing to their artillery having our range, < but we kept, on and  had the third trench before long. The  British division ��������� on our flank made  three desperate attempts to come up  with us but could not. It was a desperate position. We had accomplished the task of winning the  trenches but had to retire again leaving an unmentionable number of dead  and wounded behind. It was useless  to attempt to reinforce us as their  artillery commanded our rear and we  were isolated. Our supplies ran out  and wc had no means of replying in  kind to the German bullets and shrapnel. After several l������ours we got a  general order to retire. We all started, but only a few got back. -Later,  the 5th Battalion was able to take  the first line trenches we had gained.  We had been able to carry off some of  our wounded but not all and those  sent, to relieve us got some of them  away, but many others Jay out there  between two opposite lines and suffered until death reiisved them, the  Germans not making any attempt to  relieve them.  "It was while in  the isolated position   under  the  fire of Germans that  Lieutenanc. Campbell     won  his  V.C.,  and one of the machine gunners the  | D.C.M.    It was just before the order  i to  retire had  been given.    Campbell  [had charge of the machine gun corps.  ) At that time his corps had been v- ���������  duced   to   one   man unwounded, Pte.  Vince,   and   a   gun   without   a   tripod,  and two ;belts of cartridges.

They go far afield, searching  the coasts of the islands for possible  hostile submarine bases, and examining every sailing ship which comes  within, the war zone. They have orders to ram any submarine, or anything they imagine to bs a submarine,  without hesitation, and many have  been the reports and scares that have  failed to inaterializc.  The trawlers engaged in transport  duty have perhaps the harder time of  the two. ��������� They leave iMudros laden  with biscuits, fresh meat, tinned meal,  live goats for the Gurkhas, ammunition and a hundred and one other  articles which an army requires folks daily use. Piled>c'n top of this mass  of goods and livestock, officers and  soldiers take passage : to and back  from the front. It was no uncommon  sight to see a general sitting on a  biscuit box with a goat gnawing at  one boot and the other boot hidden  beneath a quarter of frozen beef.  More often than not there is not a  vacant square inch of space left on  the deck.  It is a remarkable tribute to the  skill in  seamanship  of the  trawlers'  Writing in the London Daily Chronicle, B. Ashmead Bartlett pays a high  tribute to the work of the British  mine sweepers at the Dardanelles.  "What would King George 'avc  done without these 'ere trawlers?"  This was the -historic remark of a  West Country skipper as he gazed  round the Aegean Sea from the bridge  of his trawler when the submarine  scare was at its height, and before  the monitors 'had' appeared to take  the< place of the cruisers and battleships. /   .  Ihe West Countryman had ample  justification for his remark and every  reason to bo proud of his craft, and-  the hundreds of others,, almost exactly similar to her, "-..which'have.-played  such a'unique and invaluable role in  the Dardanelles expedition. Probably  for the first' time in their lives the  majority of our officers and men, both  soldiers and sailors, out at the Dardanelles, have been'brought in touch  with our great fishing fleet from the  North Sea and1 from the West coast.  I have never yet seen a trawler receive an order from any admiral or  captain which was not received with a  volley of mild oaths from the skipper,  ,.       , .(.crews,  that when. one considers  the  followed    by an eloquent lecture on jthousands upon thousands of voyages  they have made and the immense tits-  how much better it would be to accomplish the same thing in a different  manner. Nevertheless, "'I.7 am. not  hinting that there is any real indiscipline, for the ordtrs are always carried out, but generally in a manner  which was never intended.  The skipper of: a trawler never will7  admit that any officer in the navy is a  realseaman. .They will stoutly maintain that seamanship is .a lost" art,  which can now only be found.among  themselves, and they love to hold  forth on the handling of great battleships as they mako their way into  ���������narrow harbors or take up difficult  anchorage, pointing out how much  better they could have done the job  themselves. They love to grumble at  everything, and without a grievance  they would be miserable.  But few have any conception of the  amount of work accomplished by  these craft. In fact, it would have  been ^almost impossible to have kept  the army supplied" without them. Between the bombardment of the outer  fort on Feb. 19 and the grand combined attack made by the whole fleet  on  March  18,  many  of the  trawlers  t'ances they have, covered, I think  only one trawler has been lost during  the whole campaign, and she wa-s  sunk off Anzac by. shellfire in the  very��������� early days.  Brought from their peaceful surroundings into the very centre of tt.e  great war game, the North Sea and  west coast fishing fleets ha,ve swept  the Dardanelles for mines; they have'  been exposed to shell fire for months  on end; they have chased submarines  and patrolled the islands of the Asiatic coast. With the destroyer flotillas, the seas were left to their care  when the battleships and cruisers  forced to.shelter by the enemy's submarines, they have carried thousands  of tons of stores from the bases to  the beaches, and transported thousands of sick and wounded to and from  the islands to the hostile shores.  Their skippers and crews belong to  a hardy race of seamen, rendered almost extinct by modern ships and  modern methods- of - travel. They  grumble, hut they carry out their orders;   and.  above all,  in spite  of all  were engaged in the most difficult and i they say, they are proud of the navy  'and of the chance ot working side by.  side  GRAIN   GROWERS'  GIFTS  Canada's  Biff  Wheat   Surplus  Financial   Journal Estimates Surplus of  Cereals at Over 300,000,000  Bushels  Canada has an exportable surplus  of wheat of 228.1.'{2,200 bushels, according to a bulletin issued by the  trade and commerco department.

Canadian Children  Save Their Pennies  Nearly  Quarter Million Saved  in  Pennies   and   Deposited   With   the  Government  The claims of the Penny Savings  Bank have been urged upon the  school authorities of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, but up to  the present time have not met with  any great encouragement in these  provinces. Up to a year or two ago  pennies were very little used in  either of the three prairie provinces, and small silver coins were  ussd more freely by the western  children than were the bigger copper  pennies by tlie eastern children.  It will not bo (.isputed that, generally speaking, th���������> children of the  west have had more money to spend  than tha children of the east, due  to the great prosperity which has  marked tlie progress of the west.  -But likewise the children of the west  had mora money to save, and would  have saved more money had they  been encouraged to do so throng;:  education in the public schools as  to the value of the penny bank.

At the quarterly meeting of the  bank recently held it was announced  that in sympathy with the appeals  recently "made by the British government regarding she practice of  thrift throughout the empire, the  claims of the Penny bank had again  been urged on tie school authorities in all thc towns in Ontario, the  Maritime Provinces, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and  Alberta in  which  the  i  towns am  bank is not operating.  cities where the bank was operating, circular letters addressed to tho  local banks and school teachers had  been sent, urging the patriotic appeal.
