C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAR  MEETING OF THE  Wm  Frakes were named  as  deputies.  The text of the agreement between the city and the contractors  for making the Winnipeg avenue  fill was approved.  The New Hospital Is Given a  Small Grant���������Returning  Officer Appointed    .  At the regular meeting of the city  couneil Monday evening Mayor Gaw  and Aid. Bickerton, Bonthron, Donaldson, Henniger, and Manly were  present. ��������� The minuces "of the last  regular meeting, and those of the  special meetings held on the 18th.  21st and 24th for the consideration  the Winnipeg avenue fill, were read  and approved.  Dr.-   Kingston   was    present- and  addressed the council.    He  complir  mented the. board on the good work  it-had accomplished during the past  year.    In view of the fact that he  had this year paid $168.40 taxes on  his  unfinished   new   hospital,    he  asked the city for a smajl donation  ���������$200���������to complete  the building.  As  the hospital  is  more or less an  institution of a  public nature, and  having received no benefits from the  taxes paid,  he thought the request  was a modest one.    The mayor and  aldermen  expressed  themselves  as  taking Mr. Kingston's view  of this  matter,   and ��������� they  were all in fav^r  of at least rebating the taxes   paid.  In   order   not to complicate keep-  keeping, however, it was decided to  make a straight  donation!    During  the   discussion  on-the  subject the  fact was established that  the' assessor had acted within the  law   when  he assessed and taxed the property,  although buildings   when   used   as  hospitals are not taxable.    On   mo  tion, a grant of $168 40  was voted  the new hospital, and on  motion of  Aid. Henniger  and   Bickerton, an  additional   donation of $32.60 was  granted the  institution,   making   a  total of $200.  ��������� The secretary of the board of  school trastees reported that there  would be three vacancies on the  board to fill at the forthcoming election.  A letter from Registrar J. H.  Dunbar, of Kamloops, approved  the description given by the clerk  of the property acquired by the city  for the Winnipeg avenue fill.  The chairman of the board of  works reported that the work of  graveling the street to the Great  Northern station was the only public work now in progress. He . had  interviewed the C.P.R. roadmaster  in reference to moving the Winnipeg avenue crossing 65 feet farther  east. That official had thought  that there would be no trouble in obtaining the necessary permission  from the railway company.  Aid. Henniger, chairman of the  health and relief committee, reported a couple of cases of destitution. He had refusbed to furnish  wood to an able-bodied man, and  in this attitude he was supported  by the council. A general discussion of relief work occupied the attention of the members of the board  for a considerable lengt.'" of time.  John   A. Huttop  was appointed  returning officer for the forthcoming  A very enjoyable and successful  smoker "was tendered the Sharpshooters in the Davis hall on Satur  day evening, December 19, by the  Overseas club. There was a large  attendance of local volunteers and  members of the club, and a lengthy  program, consisting principally of  patriotic musical numbers, was  rendered. E. Spraggett occupied  the chair during the evening.  The program was started by J. D.  Campbell, who gave a brief but  comprehensive history of the causes  that led up to the present European  war. He was followed in rapidly  succession by a long array of vocal:  ists, who kept the audience in excellent spirits with humorous, sentimental and patriotic songs until  nearly midnight. The artists who  captivated the audience to the highest pitch���������judging from the numerous   encores   tendered  them���������were  Messrs. D. Carter, Cadoo and Tas  ket.s W. J. Cook also distinguished  himself in a short oration,- in which  he incorporated- a few anecdotal  gems possessed of good horse sense.  One of the pleasant incidents of the  evening was the presentation to  Gapt. Kirk of a fountain pen, the  gift of the now demobilized company of Sharpshooters.  The entertainment was brought to  a close at about JL1:30 by the serving  of refreshments, consisting of coffee,  sandwiches   and   cake,   in the ban  quet hall.  Friday  Italy today occupied Avlona, the  Albanian'seaport?. It is semi-officially'  announced that this action implies no  purpose on the part of Italy to occupy  interior points but is merely intended  to prevent anarchy on the opposite  coast of the Adriatic, which is but a  few hours from Italian  territory.  The allies rake some positions and  make notable gains. Infantry and  artillery attacks are successful.  Christmas brings no rest to the armies  Acres of dead bodies lie between the  trenches.  The Christmas celebration in London is a military function, and the  troops are loaded down with gifts.  Pauperism nnd unemployment is the  least in thirty years.  Thei British crniser  Newcastle  and  the German warship Dresden    are believed to be engaged in a battle iu the |  Pacific.  Tuesday  President Wilson today appealed to  American shippers of contraband  goods, such as cotton, not to allow  their cargoes to be mixed with contraband. The United States government could deal confidently with the  difficulties which had arisen in the  treatment of American commerce by  Great Britain only if supported by absolutely honest munifests.  A nightmare of slanghter ends with  the defeat of the Prussians in Poland.  Appalling losses are suffered by the  enemy in a ceaseless attack for seven  days and nights against the Russian  positions. Tee flight of the Austrians  in the Carpathians was disurderly,and  reinforcements are blocked.  INMET1S  Farmers' Institute Outlines  a Progressive Policy  for 1915  S OF THE BIT  Christmas  was  spent as usual in  this city, in spite of the war.  Everybody, it is reporttd, b-id turkey and  cranberry   sauce   on   their menus,  and old Santa managed   to find   his  way into most of-homes in the city.  Tbe   Sunday   schools had their annual Christmas tr^es and distributed  the usual quantity of present to th?  scholars.    The   Daughters    of   the  Empire distributed   toys and other  gifts to about  eighty  little c'lildren  who, tkrougb stress of circuoiataces  of their parente.might otherwise have  been overlooked by St. Nicholas.  The Russo-Turkish operations have  been brought to a standstill by climatic conditions in Asia Minor.  German aviators make an attempt  against English ports, but are driven  off by British airmen.  Saturday  The Russians record victories from  centrai Poland to the Carpathians.  They capture large numbers of prisoners and guns,.and drive the Austriaus  from the village of"Wislica'aWd"beyond the river Nida. The troops of  Francis Joseph are in full retreat in  Galicia, and lose two towns.  The allies repulse fierce attacks and  gain ground, the enemy being forced  by shells to evacuate their trenches.  Aviators drop bombs at Metz. The  artillery duel continues violent.  ��������� Essad Pasha collects au army for  the purpose of attacking the Albanian  rebels. None of the powers have pro'  tested against the Italian occupation  of Avlona. ^x  John   Smith,    a  Russian    living  near   tbe    Riverside nurseries,  appeared    before   Judge   Brown   last  week on a charge of having broken  into and stolen household furniture  from the   residences  of Dan   Flem-  ming and   George  Knox,   in   the  West End.   Smith was found guilty  as charged and sentenced   to   three  years at hard labor in  the  penitentiary at New Westminster.    Constable  Williams  took  the prisoner to  that city last Thursday.  The public   school  reopens  next  Monday after the   Christmas   holi-  jjdays.    Beginners   will   not   be  re-  municipal .election, and  J.

British airmen, with a convoy of  speedy cruisers and destroyers, make  a daring attack on Cuxhaven, the  German base.  The admiralty takes the two new  Cauanian Pacific steamers Princess  Margaret and Princess Irene.  The French submarine Curie is  sunk in Pola -harbor by the guns of  the Austrian-fortress.  The United States cruiser North  Carolina threatens to use its guns at  Tripoli, Syria.  Monday  The London Times declares that  there is excellent reason, despite German denials, for believing that a par-  seval shed and airship were destroyed  in the British raid on Cuxhaven. It  adds that serious damage also was  indicted on the Zeppelin sheds.  The Austrian retreat is suid to have  become disorderly. Tho Russians  claim to have-captured twenty thousand men. Tho siege of Cracow i������  reported to have been raised. Tho  invaders hold all the important passes  in the Carpathian mountains.  The   United   States   makes a pro  test, and declares that the laws of nations are being   violated. The   British  fleet is charged with hamperihg trade,  and the policy of   interference is con  sidernd highly objectionable.  The Prussians and the allies both  capture trenches. The Germans win  near Ypres and the French near  Lens. Fierce storms halt bperations,  but some progress is reportd in the  Argon ne region, '  A premium of 75 per cent was- being paid at Lloyd's yesterday on policies worded to "pay a total loss in the  event of a declaration of war between  Great Britain and America within  twelve months from date."  The German troops today were de  feated in two battles of great importance, one for the possession of the  village of St. Georges in Belgium and  the other forthe approaches to Stein-  bach in Alsace.  The London press meet the American protest in a friendly spirit.  Wednesday  The French press forward in Alsace  and Lorraine. Great exents are im:  minedt, but the censorship is strict.  Vital roads are controlled by the  French and towns are invested.  The Russians victoriously advance  in West Galicia. The Germans are  slaughtered in Poland in a bayonet  charge. Fifteeu thousand Austrians  are captured.  The foreign office, in London says  the reports in circnlation that Japanese soldiers have landed: at Vladivostok or at any other place on their  way to Enrope are absolutely   untrue.  No further operations are to be undertaken by Austria in Servia,in order  not to divert her forces from the  north.  Holland also makes a protest. The  Hague government says Germans  should not be taken from Dutch  ships..  The Princess Patricia regiment   arrives near the firing line.  An enthusiastic meeting of the  Grand Porks Farmers' Institute was  held in the board of trade rooms on  Saturday afternoon, December 19.  President Heaven read a splendid  report, detailing the most important  results of the past year's work of the -  institute. '  .Secretary Hadden presented an  itemized statement of the finances,  which had previously been audited.  The following officers and directors  were chosen for the ensuing year:  President, C. C. Heaven; vice-  president, R. Mann; secretary, W.  E. Hadden; directors, J. T. Lawrence, E. W. Stuart, James Little,  Tom Syuaes, J. B. Markell.  The institute decided to enter for  the crop competitions of oats and  potatoes for 1915.  This year's prizes were then distributed, as follows: First, C. C.  Heaven, $25; second, E. F. Eaws,  $20; third, A. C. Burr, $15; ourth,  James Little, $10; fifth, T.

There was a large attendance of members, and a great  deal of important business was  transacted.  The sreretary's report showed  how well this year's fair bad been  arranged and carried out, with a  very small debit account. All the  prize winners had been paid in full  and every account had been settled.  ��������� The officers and directors elected  were: President, R. J. Gardner;  vice-president, E. W.

The scholars of Knox  Presbyterian  church had a ''giving" Christmas  entertainment   in   the Empress   theatre  on Tuesday   evening,   December   22.  Each  member of the school, including  the cradle roll,|who wished   to   do so,  was requested to bring one   pound   of  something   useful.     These  donations  wore  later   distributed    among those  in our city who were in need of   help.  A   plate   was also placed at the door  for   receiving  donations   from adults.  The sum realized from this source was  devoted   to    the   patriotic   fund.    A  program consisting' of   choruses, recitations,   dialogues,    drills,    etc.,   was  creditably rendered by   the   children.  ������  BY THE  Ju'uws If. Ryley is spending the  Christmas .holidays with his family  at QiH'i'tis hay.  The management of the Granby  company has informed its employees in this city that commencing with January 1 their wages  will ,be increased 5 per cent. It is  also reported that the Granby smelter in this -city intends to blow in  two additional furnaces early this  month. This will place six of -its  battery of eight furnaces in operation.  A mid-week market has been held  in the cannery building Wednesday  forenoons during the past two weeks  in order to afford the citizens an op  portunity to replenish their larders  for Christmas and New Year's.  m THE    SUN,    GTLAXn    FOUKS."   B.C.  SUPPLIES FOR THE ARMY  How   Men  in  Trenches  Are  Supplied  With   Food  The  following extracts form a letter from Major H..A. Stewart of tlie  Imperial   Army  Service  Corps,  is  of  ��������� special  interest,  dealing    as  it  does  with Ihe feeding of troops in the field.  It may be of ' general   interest    to  read how .the army    is being fed in  the  campaign   and    Ihe    system   by  which supplies    are forwarded    from  the base and issued to the troops.  Supplies of food aud forage' reach  the base from oversea and rra forwarded thence ' by rail to railhead.  This railhead is, some station on  rail sufficiently advanced for motor  transport to Keep up communication  between it and the troops, at the  same time not os far advanced as  to be nominally exposed to attack  from thc enemy. Itailhead must - be  connected to the army by good and  suitable roads. v  At railhead supplies are ol'f-Joad-  ed from the train, on to motor lorries.  These vehicles are organized with  personnel nnd .travelling workshops  into formations designated Supply  Columns. Fach Supply Column is a  separate and complete unit and  there is one of these units for every  division.  The Supply Division for an Infantry Division "consists of <3S- three-  ton, lorries, - of which one is for postal services and 27 for the conveyance of one day's food and forage  for 17,000 men and.4,000 horses. The  remaining ten lorries are for Jirsf. aid  and spare.  Each infantry, brigade . group is  loaded as follows:  One lorry with bread; 1 with meat;  1 with groceries, and 1 with oats.    ,,  As soon as the Supply Column is  loaded. it makes its daily trip from  railhead, to rendezvous. This spot Is  fixed"- by corps or divisional, headquarters" the previous night and is  some- central position well in roar  of the troops it is supplying. As  soon as the tactical situation admits, a refilling point is decided upon. To this point the' Supply Column then advances from rendez-  . vous 'and here it meets the horse-  drawn vehicles of the Supply section of the train. Supplies aro then  transferred: on conclusion of this  operation the Supply Column returns to railhead (which may or  may not be the same station as on  the previous day), and the ^Supply  section of the train proceeds to the  troops. This section is loaded as  methodically as the Column, certain  vehicles - being ear-marked for particular regiments or batteries and  each of these vehicles being loaded  with certain commodities such as  oats' and biscuit on one vehicle and  meat and groceries on another.  The supply train wagons on arrival in the rear where troops are  billeted, proceed direct to their own  regiments or batteries and. hand over  , their supplies, then returning empty  to some central position in the billeting area, are parked for the remainder of the night. Next morning they  proceed to the re-filling point and repeat the programme of the "previous  day. .   .  Such is thc system by which supplies reach the troops. It is surely  needless to say that during certain  phases in war, such as .long and  hurried advances or retirements, the  system cannot be adhered to and  other expedients i'or the time'being  must take its place.  As regards the food itself, it is  ample and very nourishing. The rations .for each man consists of:  Bread, -1%. pounds, or biscuit, 1  pound; fresh meat (frozen), l^g  pounds, or tinned meat, 1 pound; jam,  *4 pound; bacon, 1/t pound; cheese, 3  ounces; sugar, ?, ounces; tea, %  ounces; salt, %��������� ounce; rum, % gill,  and occasionally tobacco 2 ounces per  week, fresh vegetables % pound daily  when procurable, or lime juice. This is  the daily ration that has been issued  since the war commenced, and.-even,  during the long, hurried and very trying retirement from Mons troops received these rations. There have  been very occasional.days when troops  . received half rations and one or' two  days when they goljiothing. Such occasions, however, were necessitated  by the tactical situation and not  through any failure of the A.S.C. in  forwarding the supplies.  I have alrSady said*that the nominal system of forwarding supplies cannot always be adhered to. 1 will give a  few instances. During the retirement  from Mons, which commenced on the  21th of August, supplies wore issued  to tho troops direct from the supply  column, the medium ot* the train wagons not being employed. This was  necessary for two reasons, firstly, because it was imperative that all roads  in rear of the fighting troops should  be kept clear of slow moving horse-  drawn vehicles, the train wagons being, therefore, kept 10 to 15 miles  ahead of the-retiring troops and wore  consequently not available. Secondly,  the marches were so long and so continuous that tho horses of the train'  were too exhausted to carry out their  part of the programme.  A;.;ain, during the battle of Mons,  the supply column did not reach the  main position occupied by tho troops  till 10 p.m., on the night of the 22nd.  Some of the battalions were in very  advanced positions and it would have  been impossible for horse drawn vehicles to have refilled and then advanced to these forward positions,  emptied and returned to safely before  daylight. The work had therefore of  necessiyt to be entrusted to the lorries, one being guided to its destination in the outpost line without lights  and with au officer lying on the roof,  revolver in hand.  The hours of work of the Army  Service   Corps   have   been  long  and  W. N. U. 1027  arduous, the work' itself very fatiguing and often dangerous. - Twenty-  two hours work out of twenty-tour  have been' the rule rather than the  exception, marching and loading by  day, delivering to units by night. The  work has always been cheerfully carried out for the A.S.C. realize that  if their lot is hard it.is a bed of roses  TH.E  HISTORY OF TRAPSHOOTING  Now     Popult.r    Sport   Runs   Back   to  Eighteenth Century Origin  Pigeon-shooting,   the  forerunner  of  modern  trapshooting,  was  a popular  sport in England during the last ceii-  i tury. It was mentioned in the Sporting  compared   to   that  of   their  brethren j Magazine,    .London, as early'as :l 793,  haversack an Iron Ration of biscuit  and tinned meat to be kept as a reserve. On 'the morning of the 24th  August, during the lsat day of the  battle of Mons, and the  the retirement this ration was consumed by the troops, it being impossible to deliver the normal ration to.  them in their battle positions, With  each brigade is a' requisitioning officer who supplements the soldier's  ration by requisitioning supplies locally and is provided with a motor  car to carry out his duties. On the  24th two supply officers succeeded  in requisitioning some newly baked  bread which was loaded in the cars.  Under a very heavy- rifle and shell  fire this bread was carried rapidly  along the line behind the barricades  manned by tlie troops and issued to  the soldiers, lytic, and shrapnel bullets knocked up the nlust in the road  along which the cars were driven.  One car was hit in two places, but'  not seriously damaged. The same  car conveyed wounded men from the  firing line to the hospital. In addition to th3 danger from bullets and  shells the cars ran considerable risk  of damage from the condition of the  road, strewn as it was by pieces of  stone, brick, chimney pots, glass and  telegraph wire brought down by the  shrapnel and high explosive shell.  The supply and requisitioning offis-  ers in their cars have to work .on  the front and flanks of the main bodies  of the troops, much of the work is  done at night and considerable risks  have to bo run from small detached  or scouting parties of the enemy.  The   Germans'   Ten   Commandments  .Tho Chamber of Commerce in Germany long ago issued a circular-giving  the following ten command inputs <o  be observed by the people.  1���������In all expenses keep in mind  the interests of your own compatriots.  2���������Never forget that when you  buy foreijn articles your own  country is poorer.  -   ?>���������Your money should profit no one  but Germans.  4���������Never profane German factories  by using foreign machinery.  5���������Never allow foreign eatables to  be served at your table.  G���������Write on German paper with  a German pen, and use German blotting'paper.   ���������  7���������"Use German flour, eat German  fruit, and drink German beer.

'To those who feel anxious on the subject of pigeon-shooting," the Sportsmen's Cyclopedia  (London, 3848) recommends a visit  u> thc lied House, ���������'where the business  is pursued in the first style of excellence." Lords and captains lent an air  of fashion to the activities of the  place, and on the establishment, of  the Hurlingham Club at Fulham the  amusement was raised higher than before in general favor. It has now been  superseded by trapshooting, the name  of which is of American origin: and  inanimate targets, the product of  American inventiveness, have accordingly been substituted for live birds.  Of course, in all this history, there  have been interesting stages. The  traps in use at the "Old Hat" won,-  shallow .boxes, each about one foot  long and eight or ten inches wido,  sunk in the ground level with-thc surface. A sliding lid was operated by  pulling a string, thus liberating the  bird. Among the - famous pigeon-  shooters of that day was Mr. ,'ltichard  Tooraer, to whom Mr. ,'lohnson referred  in his Cyclopedia: "The exploits  which R. Toomer performed in shooting,' with such apparent ease, soon  convinced the persons who saw them,  that they were done methodically: and  this was completely ascertained, by  his frequently suffering himself to be  blinded with a - double handkerchief  over his eyes, -after having taken his  aim, and then to lire and hit a small  object."  In .1831 pigeon-shooting was- mentioned in the records of the Sport-  men's .Club, Cincinnati, and in the  forties���������and a few decades thereafter it  flourished,in New York and its vicinity. The'invention and adoption of  inanimate targets followed, though  the older pastime was not at once  abandoned. A Boston man, Charles  Portlock, originated the use of glass  balls for targets about 1880. A Phila-  delphian, a few years later, invented  a target consisting of a pasteboard  disc a few inches in diameter, with  the centre cut out to admit a small  rubber balloon. Punctured balloon,  "dead bird." Clay discs were the next'  innovation, but because they were of  unequal hardness .and because the  trap's were mechanically deficient, the  sport of trapshooting came near giving  up the ghost. Targets are now made  of river silt and tar and bear the  name of "clay  pigeons."  Last year more than sixty-five million "clay pigeons" succumbed to the  marksmanship of American trapshooting.  malt  Ger-  flatlery    dis-  foreign  tract you from these precepts, and  be firmly convinced that whatsoever  others may say, Germany products  aro the only ones worthy of the  citizens of the German Fatherland.  Canada's Grain Crops  A bulletin issued by the census  and statistics office gives provisional  estimates of the yield aud" quality of  tlie principal Canadian grain crops  and also the condition of root and  fodder crops .. as compiled from reports of correspondence made on  September 30.  In general, the. reports confirm: the  statement issued previously, the  average yields per acre being .about  the same as ill en estimated for wheat,  but being somewhat less for oats,  barley and flax. ,    "-  The total yields for Canada, of the  principal grain crops in bushels are  as follows: Wheat, 158,223,000: oats,  3ir,42C,000; barley, 34,491,000; rye, 2,-  258,000; peas, 3,537,100; beans, S23,-  400; buckwheat, 9,159,000; flaxseed, 7,-  533,000; mixed grains, 17,438,000; and  corn for husking, 14,732,000."  In the Maritime Provinces both the  yield and quality of the grain crops  are excellent.  The condition of root, crops at September 3(i is for till Canada about  equal to last year, being 75 per cent,  of a standard or full crop for potatoes;. 78 per cent, for turnips; 80 per  cent, for mangolds, carrots, etc.; .S9  per cent, for sugar beets; 90 per cent,  for fodder corn, and 7 per cent.'for  alfalfa.  In Manitoba and Saskatchewan tho  condition of the, root crop is low owing to the drought, in Northern Alberta, where the season was of more  normal-character, these crops  a  fair showing.  During September, conditions  boon Livorable for harvesting  threshing and in tho Northwest  Provinces a great doal bothresliing  was completed by October :l. There  are indications that the nmountof  fall ploughing tnis year will be  greater than usual.  Will you sail with me on the. sea of  matrimony?  Yes,' after you make a raff- of  money.

"Servia said: Very well, we will  give orders to the newspapers that  they must not criticize Austrian in future, neither Austria nor'Hungary, nor  anything that is theirs.'- (daughter).  Who can doubt -the valour of Servia  when she undertook to tackle her  newspaper editors? (Laughter). She  promised not to sympathise with Bosnia, promised to write no critical articles about Austria. Siie wc 'd have  no-public meetings at which anything  unkind was said about Austrir. -  "That was not enough. S -via must  dismiss from her army officers whom  Austria should subsequently na ne.

I wondjr  whether it was their guilt or their  efficiency that prompted Austria's action. But mark, the officers were r.ot  named; Servia was to undertake .n  advance to dismiss them from the  army, the names to be sent on subsequently.  "Cau you name a country in tlu?  eWorld that would have stood that?  Supposing Austria or Germany had issued an ultimatum of that kind to this  country: 'You must dismiss from your  army and from your navy nil those  officers whom we shall subsequently name!'

It was not guilt  she was after, but capacity. (Laughter).  "Then came Russia's turn. Russia  has a special regard for Servia. She  has a special interest in .iervia. Russians have shed their blood for Servian independence many a tinK. Servia is a member of her family, and she  cannot see Servia maltreated. Austria knew that. Germany knew that,  and Germany turned round to Russia  and said: 'Here, 1 insist that you  shall stand by with your a-rms folded  whilst Austria is strangling to death  your little brother.'  "What answer dfd the Russian Slav  give?   lie gave the only answer that  very remarkable product, as -an illus;  tration of the spirit we have got .to  fight. It is his speech to his soldiers on the way to the front:   ,  "Remember that the German people  are the chosen of God. On me, on".m&  as German emperor the Spirit of God  has descended.

One  was badly wounded, but his companion had stuck by him all the time in ,a  country swarming with Germans, and  though they hau only a few biscuits  between them thoy managed to 'pull  through until we picked them thorn up.  I pressed the uuwounded man to tell  mo how they managed to get through  the four days .on six biscuits, but he  always got angry and told me to shut  up. . I fancy he went without anything, and gave the biscuits to tlio  wounded man. They wore offered  shelter many times by French peasants, but they were' so afraid of  bringing trouble on theso kind folk  that they would never accept shelter.  One night they lay out in the open  all' through a heavy downpour,  though they could have had shelter.  "Uhlans were on the prowl, and thoy  would not think of compromising the  French people, who would have been  glad to holp them.  "In another case there was a man  of the Essex Regiment who fought  the Germans single-handed until shot-  in both legs, and then cra-wled away  to die rather than surrender. Fortunately for him, he Avas discovered  through the sagacity of a horse belonging to our regiment, and we  brought him in. I-lis only question-  was whether he would be court-  martialed for leaving his company  without authority, but- if.he pulls  through no court-martial is likely, to  go against him even if he was technically at fault."

Spies  In  Canada  It is a fact that agencies are at  work circulating falsfsgfliterature intended to undermine the loyalty of  Canadians to their own cause and  to justify the hellish assault of  Prussianized Germany on tho peace  and liberties of Europe. ' The so-  called German-Canadian Alliance of  Saskatchewan some time ago petitioned tho Borden government to  restrain tho. Canadian press from Injuring the feelings of German immigrants. The members of this society  apparently expected all.' the newspapers to repress the kaiser's mad  speeches, and to exclude accounts of  German atrocities against the helpless  Belgians. These aro only tho -more  open evidences of German activity  throughout the Dominion.  There is even greater need to protect the country against the underground workings of the .Prussian  agents and spies.

Government  Will   Test  New   Matho'ls  With   Modern   Equipment  The Dominion forestry Branch has  spared no reasonable expense in equipping its Forest Products Laboratories,  recently established at Montreal in cooperation "with McGill'University, with  the mose modern and oificient machines for testing tlie properties and possibilities of Canadian'woods. Some native species of trees, little used until  now, will be tested to see Avhethcr  thoy aro suitable Tor pulp and paper  manufacture. For this purpose the  largest non-commercial paper machine  in the world will bo installed. This has  the unique feature of being adjustable  to the manufacture of alt grades of  paper.  Detailed records of the process of  manufacture of the different grades of  paper will lie kept. In this way Canadian pulp and paper manufacturers  by adopting, the same methods may  achieve similar results.  Another very Important feature of  tlie work of these laboratories will be  the investigating of various methods  of wood preservation. By such process the life of railway ties, . posts,  poles and construction timber will be  in some cases doubled. It is expected  that it willbe proved possible to use  many of the most common Canadian  .woods for purposes to which, except  for their non-durability, they are admirably adapted. ��������� Birch, for instance,  if treated with creosote or ziuc chloride, or with a little of both of these  preservatives, makes an ideal railway  tie or paving block, being cheap and  also very resistant to the wear and  tear of traffic.

"Some time ago I was making a  visit to a distant part of tho country and took dinner with one of the  merchants of tho place. I noticed a  somewhat unusual flavor of the "coffee" and asked liim concerning it. He  replied that it was Postum.  "I was so pleased with it that, after  tho meal was over, I bought a package  to carry home with me, and had wife  prepare sotno for the next meal. The  wholo family wore so well pleased  witli it that we discontinued coffee and  used Postum entirely.  "I had really been at times very anxious concerning my mother's condition, but wo noticed that after using  Postum for a short time, she felt so  much better than she did prior to its  use, and had little trouble with her  heart, and no sic: stomach; that tho  headaches were not so frequent, and  her general condition much improved.  This continued until she was well and  hearty.  "I know Postum. has benefited myself and the other members of tho  family, but not in so marked r. degree*  as in thc case of my mother, as she  was a victim of long standing." Name  given by Canadian Postum Co., Windsor, Ont.  Postum comes in two forms: \  Regular Postum���������must be well boiled. 15c and 25c packages.  Instant Postum���������is a soluble powder. A teaspoonful dissolves quickly  in a cup of hot water and, with cream  and sugar, makes a delicious bover-  ago instantly.    30c and 50c tins.  The cost per cup of both kinds is  about tho same.  "There's a Reason" for Postum.  ���������sold by Grocers.  Singer at the  Front  1 Among the Russian officers on the  Prussian frontier is M. Tretiakoff, a  well known singer in the Petrograd  Opera, and formerly an artillery officer. To encourage the men, he sang  in the trenches military songs relating  to Peter the Great, the soldiers joining in the chorus. He also sang songs  from Tchaikowsky's operas.  During the recent fighting twelve  Russian guns were ��������� attacked by a  strong German force and wen ordered . to retreat. One battery was incapacitated owing to the horses being either killed or wounded.  M. Tretiakoff shouted, "We can't  leave any guns behind,-, "boys!" and  went to the aid of the battery with a  few horses, he himself acting as  driver.  Minard's   Liniment  Cures   Diphtheria.

"I want a shave and a hair cut, and  I have only fifteen minutes," he said.  Old Fritz stopped to consider. After  a few seconds lie asked:  "Vitch do you vant the most?"  "A shave."  The shave took about eleven minutes.  As Fritz removed the towel from  his customer's neck, he said:  "Mine friend, don't ncfer again ask  a barber to cut your hairs and shafo  you in fifteen minutes, because sometime vou might find a barber vat  would do it."

"Well," replied the lazy one, "there  wore ten of us boys, and each of us  had a sister."  "What!" gasptd his questioner. "Do  you mean to sav that there were twenty of you?"

Evidently our local politicians are   not  looking  on   the civic   offices   with  envious  eyes.    It   is possible that  this   apathy   may  result in an election   by acclamation  this year.    If  good officers can be secured by  this  method, the ratepayers will gain the  cost of taking a poll.'   Perhaps   this  is the reason'why  so   little   interest  is taken in the coming election.  he  last U'o days have been in advanced  , trenches along with tlie British [  guard regiments and have acquitted .'  themselves well, says a dispatch" to;  the Montreal .Star from northern!

One    day   a  rnessco'k, for  some reason, cleaned about a peck of  knives and forks on   tbe   gun deck,  and    being   suddenly    called   away  and   not   wishing  to spend time to  go to the galley, he seized  the in ess-  I pot   full   of   knives and    forks and  stuck it in tbe muzzle   of   the   ten-  inch   gun, putting  the   tampion in  after   it.

A submarine with  a crew of eight or nine men attacks  and chiles three cruisers carrying  about 2,->00 men. Of these latter some  1,400 are crowned. These men wore  not challenged to fight; they were not  summoned to surrender; they were  murdered wholesale while asleep in  their bunks���������cheaply, expeditiously,  and with a minimum of risk to those  who destroyed them. That is modern  war. The affair described is discussed at great length by naval experts,  who arguo whether battleships aro  obsolete. The "victors" are lauded  and decorated, and take their place  in Lho world's news. Blackboard  would understand that victory and ap-  provo it, so would Attila, so would  Nero, but we should like to see a  board oi! naval strategists trying to  explain these modern methods to Sir  Philip Sidney or Nelson or Bayard.

White     Settlers   of- Prince   Rupert's  Land   Prior  to   1870   to   Send  Deputation to Ottawa  The executive committee of "The  Pioneers cf Rupert's Land, 1836-1870,".,  decided to" "arrange to send a delegation of capable members, representing..the classes of which the association is composed, to Ottawa, with full  powers to effect the .settlement of  their claims on the Dominion under  the terms of the concession of the  North West by' the British government to Canada.  Resolutions were introduced and  passed to the following effect:  "That the matter not ..being of a  party character, this period of truce in  party strife is considered very suitable for its settlement.,'in the' spirit of  British justice.' Moreover, this time  of the great war in which--the empire  is engaged in fulfilling its treaty obligations is deemed fit and proper vfor  th) honorable discharge -of this unsettled-item of the inter-colonial 'understanding 'by. which Rupei't's Land  became united to Canada.

"Tho Firth of'Forth    Bridge,"    he  ��������� Bays/'"constitutes'a grave danger to  the Rossyth Royal .naval base. For  this reason, its location between Itos-  ��������� - Byth and the.seas is a decided menace.  'In the event of hostilities,- in fact be-  " ' fore the outbreak of war, it is no ways  impossible to blow up the Firth of  Forth bridge and bottle all war vessels-concentrated at the Rossyth base..  They could thus be bottleu up for  several days powerless, while a foreign fleet SAvept at the Scottish coasts.  The British foreign office will understand what I mean by this: Look to  the middle islana. I found it to be  partly intervened with soft, . soapy  Neiss, making natural ruts and cavi-  '- ties that were ideal'for the placing cf  explosives.   I learned alsc that along  ... the Edinburgh approach to the Firth  of Forth bridge were two pieces of  ground- and houses entirely owned  by Germans-although the deeds stood  in Scottish names. Moreover, little  fishing hamlets on either, side of tho  bridge hai^ored more than one supposed .Swedish fisherman but who in  reality had his name still on the German naval register. In the event of  trolible thise men, using explosives  stored in the two houses in question,  could have blown the middle island to  atoms."  "Dr. Graves," it must be explained,  is an assumed name. The writer  states that he is a member of a well-  known European family (not German,  ��������� it would appear), and that he' had  been disowned by them as the outcome of a violent family quarrel. He  entered the service- of "the German  war office in the* expectation that  through the influence of a powerful  patron' his family possessions would  be  restored to  him.    He    executed  ��������� .'.'secret commissions, he states, at Port  Arthur   before    tho    Russo-Japanese  -    war; in the Balkans, in France and in  ��������� Great Britain, and his strongly circumstantial account of the workings  . of the   German ' intelligence   depart-  '   ment is of absorbing interest, and to  the lay mind seems almost sufficiently  powerful    to    carry    conviction.    Its  - historical value,   however,    would be  " foolish for the layman to attempt to  assess.  One of the most interesting chapters in the book-is concerned with the  . famous "Agadir incident" of 1911. On  that occasion Europe was brought to  the verge of war and the German war  party exerted every effort to bring  about a rupture of diplomatic relations with France. The German warship Panther entered the Agadir harbor, but was withdrawn by the captain after he had received an ultimatum from French and British warships.  Dr. Graves states that he himself was;  despatched-by the Kaiser with a secret verbal message to the captaiii of  the Panther who was instructed on no  account to use force, even though he  might receive contrary official instructions. The incident,' according  to' Dr. Graves, was deliberately  brought about by the German Emperor,    as a means of determining how-  ��������� closely Britain was willing to stand  by France in the event of trouble.  "It.took a master stroke to bring the  situation up to tlie point of war," says  the author, "for it was a" dangerous  business,   with   all Germany   roaring  i. for war���������and then avert war when  "England and France were on the verge  of-it. The results were before him.  By creating the situation, -he knew  that he had two powerful.ene'mies opposed to him. Good! What he would  do now would be to -.-try to take one  nation and secretly ally himself with  ��������� It, leaving the other out in the cold.  Then began the intrigues which planned the isolation of France." '  Of the belief which prevailed among  some pacificists jefore the outbreak of  war that German, Socialism, would,  prove powr rful enpugli to. prevent a  , European armageddon, .Dr. Graves  says, "To. a close student these assertions .are absolutely wrong. Teutonic  /Germanic races have ever.been given  Mo deeply analytical,'philosophical  studies, criticising and -dissecting  the policies of their rulers. But underlying" you will find a deeply practical,  sense and appreciation of material  benefits The. German Socialist is in  fact a practical dreamer,.quite in contrast to his mercurial, effervescent  Latin prototype.  Dr. Graves' Believes the German  secret service to be the most efficient  In the world. Next comes France and  Russia and then Britain .which has  only entered seriously into secret service work on the continent of Europe  during the past few years, but during  that period has made great progress.  He claims that in addition to the  fleet "of Zeppelins and other airships  the possession of which Germany has  acknowledged, others the nature of  whose construction, has been kept a  strict secret are also in reserve. These  have never been used In the general  manoeuvres. In these ships the Germans "have overcome the condition of  fculk and heaviness    of   structure by  their government chemists devising  the formula of a material that is lighter than aluminum yet whicn possesses  all that metals density and which has  the flexibility of steel. Airships not  among the twelve Germany admits  officially are made of this material. Its  formula is a government secret and  England or France would give thousands of dollars to possess it. v  "Tlie objection of the inflammability  of the lifting power has also "been  overcome. The power of the ordinary  hydrogen gas in all its various forms  has been multiplied threefold by a new  goVernnient chemical laboratory. This  gas has also the enormous advantages  of being absolutely non-inflammable."  Dr. Graves . expresses the opinion  that aeroplanes cannot prove successful in attacks upon Zeppelins, because  the Zeppelins can rise to a much  greater heiglit. "They don't have to  aim. They simply dump overboard  some of the new explosive of the German government, these new chemicals  having the propercy of setting on fire  anything that they hit. They aTe  simply throwing something at the city  of London. And remember that  whenever one of the new German explosives strikes, conflagration begins.  The "Japanese peril," Dr. Graves  states,.is a bogey deliberately manufactured by the German government  "to keep America's hands full in the  event of the coming European war. It  is all bluff, and occasionally Japan  must be rewarded for keeping up the  bluff. Let me emphasize, with all due  knowledge of the alarmist's; fears that  the United States needlnever fear. the.  'Yellow Peril' as long as she does not'  antagonize -the dominant powers of  Europe."       ��������� '  The��������� information as to the danger  which Dr. Graves said threatened-  thc Forth Bridge, was given "in return  for England's fair treatment of me  during my trial." Of the events which  preceded his arrest he says:  "Going -"ia .March, I arrived in  Edinburgh and'put up at the old Bedford -Hotel'On Prince's street, a quiet  select Scottish hostelry. r* registered  under my quasi-correct name of A. K.  Graves, M.D^, Turo, Australia". My  "stunt" was to convey the impression  of being an Australian .physician taking additional . post-graduate courses  .at tlie famous Scottish seat of medical  learning. After a few days' residence  at thc Bedford, I installed myself-in  private quarters at a Mrs. Macleod's,  23 Craiglea Drive, Edinburgh. The  ordinary expense* provided for my residential quarters was ?75 a week.  This, of course, did not include '.'extras" such as entertaining, motors;  etc.  "For the first fortnight i' quietly  took my bearings, creating a suggestion that I was a semi-invalid. Having by this time familiarized myself  with Edinburgh and surroundings, I  made frequent trips to the Firth of-  Forth,, upon which, was located the  Rossyth base. Now across the Firth  there is a long bridge. It is between  the Rossyth base and the North Sea.  Warships going to and from thenaval  'station pass under it. But more about  this bridge later���������something'for, the  beTrtefit of tho English admiralty.

For this he  received no money and he was not a  traitor to his country. Through the  little acquaintance I struck up. with  him I was- able to make a .thorough  study of the bridge and its structure���������  a strategic point, the bridge. Also,  through thc offices of my.good friend  the keeuer, I was" introduced, to some  of his ^pals" in the waterguard. Because of my intimate knowledge' of  Bo������bie Burns, Walter���������Scott, "iuside"  history of Prince Charlie, and���������ahem  ���������Scottish proclivity for a drop o'  whisky, they accepted me as a half  Scotchman.

So much for thc  topographical knowledge'which could  only be obtained through personal  contact with men 'who actually knew  .every inch ol| the ground. The charts  back in Berlin could not give me  that exact information. The higher  scientific data of the fociilications  and the base, I obtained by social intercourse . with high placed officials  ���������officers and engineers at Rossyth  ���������whom I entertained at various  times.

Accordingly, I stood on  the bridge that night and waited. At  five o'clock in the morning' a gray,  rainy foggy morning, through which  the ships moved almost ghost-like, I  made out sixteen Avar vessels. From  their silhouettes, I knew them to be  dreadnoughts, cruisers, and torpedo  boat destroyers. At once I filed a  cable by way of Brussels informing  the Intelligence Department of the  German navy that an English fleet  sixteen strong had put to sea. Subsequently I learned that in describing  the sixteen sftipa T had made only one  mistake "  was raging  falling like  slatter of  Charged   Through   an   Avalanche  Destruction  A. thrilling, story is told of the gallantry of the Royal Horse Artillery  and tho destruction of one of the big  German guns during the fighting on  the Rtver Aisne.  The Germans were moving one of  their biggest guns, drawn by a team  of 40.odd horses, behind a range of  hills. They had to pass a gap, which  exposed them to view. The movement of the guns was screened by a  bony of Hussars, but something went  amiss with the cavalry at the critical moment, and our gunners catching sight of tho movement, promptly  made up their minds to have a go.  The great artillery duel  at the full,, shells were  hail.  There was a sudden  wheels, and out" into the open rushed  a battery of horse artillery. The war  horses, driven at headlong speed,  thundered over the uneven ground  at racing pace.   :������������������'������������������-���������  The gun carriages, almost lifted  from the ground by the "headlong  rush, bounced over the broken surface, while guns wore trained on  them from every angle while shells  were bursting round them.  Still the gunners rode bravely on  through that avalanche of destruction���������it was Britain at her best.  They reached the angle they had  raced for, and the guns slipped into  action as though it were a trial day  at the Curragh camp.  The big gun of the enemy, with  its long train of horses, came from  behind the screen of hills to cross  the second gap, flanked by a squad  of cavalry.  Then the field artillery -spoke, its  deep-toned growling scarcely heard  amidst the deafening thunder that  was' shaking the whole battle front  like the booining of breakers on cliff-  crowned coasts. Shell followed shell  with lightning speed and deadly accuracy, the little band of British  gunners slipping round their guns  with cat-like activity and coolness.  ' The squad of cavalry in the gap  felt the iron hail, and men and  horses went down in tangled heaps.  The enemy tried vainly to rush  the big gun across the miry ground  to the safety of the hills ahead. The  horses went down and the men with  them; then,,like hammers on an anvil, the shells fell upon the long grey  gun "that -Krupps had built for the  siege of Paris, until it lay a useless  mass of steel!

In  the latest number - to hand of the  French colonial organ, "La Depech'e  Coloniale,", there is republished anLarticle which appeared in the columns,  of .that journal just six years age, in  September, 1908. In this article a contributor reported a conversation he  had had with "a'high German person-  ag"e".on the prospects of a! European  war, and some of the statements then  advanced, make instructive reading at  the present time. This "high German  personage"���������-speaking it .will be remembered, six years ago���������said that in  Germany war !was expected to breaic  out in five years' time; The military  authorities were not ready for it at  the. moment, but they .calculated that  in five years they would be ready to  beat' both France - on land and this  country on the sea.  In their anticipated conquest of  France they were relying on the  French" religious and political dissensions, on the spirit of anti-militarism  on the proclamation of a general  strike .by the Labor Federation at  the outbreak of -/ar, on the physical  and moral decadence of the French,  on the disorganized condition of their  army and navy, on the pacific character of most of their educationists,  and on the revolt of the natives in  the French colonies. It was admitted,  however, that there was another side  to the picture. In the event of war  between the.powers of the Triple Al  liance and tho Triple Entente, thij  German prophet predicted a blockade  of the North Sea by; the British and  French fleets; the intervention of  Denmark, which would necesslta'. j the  detachment of a German army corps  to keep watch' on that country; a  (' nible revolt in Prussian Poland and  in Alsace-Lorraine; a' war which  might last six months, and consequently a defensive-war on the part  of France on her eastern frontier;  the landing of a British army of 120,-  000 men, commanded by. Sir John  French; an attack by an enemy of a  quarter of a million Russians in East  Prussia whert. Germany would be con-  tent to rc\ o.<. the defensive with  three army corps, the weakness of the  support given by Italy to the Triplo  Alliance; and a nvolt in German West  Africa. ���������-,:".  If the war'were to last longar than  six months, the opinion was expressed  that Germany would be ruined, and  the terms to which she might have to  submit if -her plans: miscarried were  set out as follows: The restoration of  Metz and lorraine to France; the neutralization of Alsace under the rule of  a Prince elected by the rest of Europe;" the restoration of Schleswig-  Holstein to Denmark; a war indemnity of 100 million:; to France, would  also take over Togoland and the Cam-  eroons, the surrender to Great Britain  of. West Africa, Heligoland, half .-.  dozen German battleships and a dozen  German cruisers; a war indemnity of  150 millions from Germany and Aus-  tr'v.to Russia, and other modifications of Germany's .eastern frontiers.  It may be doubted : (concludes the  correspondence) if Germany will get <  eff so lightly as this, financially, when  the time comes for settlement.

Kaid Maclean Bereaved  That gailant old Scottish soldier,  Kaid Sir Henry Maclean, has suffered  a severe bereavement in the death of  his only .surviving son, Captain Andrew De Vere Maclean, of -the East  Surrey Regiment. Captain Maclean,  who was in the Special Rteserve of  Officers, joined his regiment at the  outbreak of the war, and fell in thc  fighting on the Aisne.  Sir Harry himself, before taking  service as military instructor of thc  Moorish Army, was In the C'Jth Fooc,  now the 2nd Battalion of the Welsh  Regiment.  the lieutenant commanded the terrorized  hostages immediately to deliver to  him 200 watches, 200 alarm clocks,  and 228 vfur caP3> the deficiency in  the figures to be compensated for by  a payment of^lOO marks (������5) per  article.  While this decree was in course of  'execution Lieutenant von Lounitz ordered his breakfast, in the menu of  which figured 2 lb. of salmon and  three bottles of cognac,- and also  breakfast for the lower ranks, who  were to be, treated to the same number of courses with the exception of  the "delicious" salmon. As, however,  there was not an ounce of salmon  obtainable throughout the length. and  breadth of the town of Konin, th3  lieutenant "graciously condescended  to delete this item from the menu.  When the" breakfast was over, a  parade was organized in the marketplace, the main feature of which consisted in the soldiers standing erect  with loaded rifles and reverently saluting Lieutenant von Launicz, who,  inebriated almost to blindness by the  cognac, was making convulsive,  though pompOus and boastful, movements on his horse.  In the midst of tlie magnificent  operation and all the grandeur attending it a funeral procession was  observed In the distance. The Germans 'took this to be a company of  Cossacks and fled in great panic together with their drunken commander, to a village close by.  Hero they composed themselves and  commenced   a   rigorous     plundering  campaign. ' Having  packed   all   their  spoils on vans, they were just making  the   final   preparations   for   their j  glorious departure when    V\ey    vcrc i  suddenly impeded by an impenetrably i  dense colud.of "smckc" coming nearprj  and nearer to their ranks. |  Thinking it was the effect of gun.* j  of the approaching Cossacks, theyi  again fied in terror, leaving only  cheaply bought booty behind them. I  Meantime out of the mass of "smoke' |  naively emerged a herd of innocent  oxen.  A few days later three German officers came to Konin, aud after investigating the "brave exploits" of  Lieutenant von Launitz returned the  fur caps end some of tho other plunder to the owners who had so quickly  delivered them in response to the  lieutenant's threatening decree.   w~  Breathless  Feat Two Thousand   Feet -  Above the Sea, During Channel  Patrol  The man who walked over Niagara  on a tight-rope will have to take a  back  seat in  favor of our intrepid  naval airmen.   Here is the official account of a deed, the bare imagination.  of which "take one's breath away: "On  one occasion, during one. of the airship  patrols, it became necessary to change -"  a. propeller   blade of one of-the engines.

The report states that during the course of  the war the Royal Naval Air Service  ���������naval wing of the Royal Flying  Corps���������has not been idleT airships,  aeroplanes, and, seaplanes having  proved their value in many undertakings. While the Expeditionary Force  was being moved abroad, a strong  patrol to the eastward of the Straits  of Dover was undertaken by both sea-  planes and airships of the Naval Air  Service. The airships remained steadily patrolling between the French and  English coasts, sometimes for twelve  hours on end, while further to; the  east, with the assistance of the Belgian authorities, a temporary reaplane  base was established at Ostend, and a  patrol- leapt up with seaplanes between  this place and the English coast opposite. By this means it was impossible  for the enemy's ships to approacii the  straits without being seen for many  miles.
