Bickerton,  Bonthron, Donaldson^. Manly, McCallum and'Smith were present "at  the,regular meeting of ,the city  council on Monday evening.  Before the session opened, a large  delegation-from the board of trade  took up an hourof the members'  time in asking for a donation from  - the city of about.$200. to help defray  theexpenses of the board.  J,, F. Kraus'was granted  permis-  -sion to construct   a- drain from the  Royal  bank , to connect, with   the  drain from the ;Russell hotel.  Messrs. Innes. and Eaton peti-  sioned the council for a 2 inch water  main ro their residences, in place of  the present 1 incti.pipe, which, they  claimed, was too 6mall to supply  the desired amount of water. Referred to water and light committee.  "The chairman of the finance committee was undecided on the subject  of the advisability of depositing the  sinking fund with the government.  He had made a request from the  manager-of the Bank . of Commerce  for a raise on the rate of interest on  this money, to 3-������ per cent. Mr.  Niles had promised to take the matter "up with the officials of the bank.  The chair.:otHhe board of works  reported shat the Winnipeg avenue  fill was nearly finished. He did not  think it would be advisable to convert the old Cosmos hotel into a  pound barn. Action on this matter,  he said, could be postponed for another year. He also reported that the  centre pier of the footbridge at the  smelter was in bad condition, and  there was danger of the bridge going out when the high water came.  The Granby company had agreed to  supply ..the material, if the city  would furnish the labor for repairing  it. The labor would not cost over  $16. The board was given power  to act in this matter.  The chairman of the health and  relief committee an exhaustive report. He complimented the Daugh  ters of the Empire for the effective  and commendable relief work that  organization is performing. in the  city.; He recommended that in cases  were property owners- become temporarily embarrassed, and are unable to realize oh their property,  thus compelling them to seek assistance from the city, the recipient  ... of such assistance should be requested to sign a note for the repay  ment of the money advanced by the  city. : On-motion of Aid. McCallum  and Donaldson, a resolution was  passed approving this recommendation.  The chairman of the water and  light committee recommended that  light be furnished A. Clunis' double  residence on Fourth street at a Hat  rate of $2 per month for each half  of the house, and that a meter be  installed at the city's expense. The  chairman of the committee wasgiven  power to act in this case.  The   clerk   read   several    letters.  from Wm. Henderson, resident gov-:  ment architect at Victoria, in   reference to the light bill  for the public  building in this  city.    It appeared  that the   bill   for   the   past   three'  months' light   had   .Been,   returned  several times, with a request for al  terations and-a discount. The last  letter threatened that the g overn  ment would install its own lighting  plant if a discount was not granted.  The clerk stated that in his letter  to 'Mr. Henderson he had explained  that the light rate in this city was  based on a 'sliding Rcale, according  to the amount of power used, and  that no discount was granted to  anyone. Mayor Gaw ."characterized  the last communication from' the  resident architect as the poorest let  ter he bad ever heard read. If he  were the chairman of the water and  light committee, or the city clerk,  he would return the bill to Mr.  Henderson, with the statement that  if it was not paid at once the water  and light, in the public building  would be.cut off. Aid. McCallum,  chairman of the water and light  committee, fully endorsed the views  expressed by the mayor. He bad  intended to have prepared a resolution embodying the suggestions  made by Mr. Gaw, but the matter  had been overlooked On motion  of Aid. Maniy and Bickerton, the  collection of this bill was left in the  hands of the chairman'of the water  and   light   committee  and the city  clerk.  Aid.   Manly,   chairman   of    the  finance committee, brought  up  the  matter of a grant to  Dr. Kingston's  hospital.'   He   was  not  in favor of  making the grant, but if the council  decided on making it,   at any rate  it should   not   be  made  until after  the collection of .the. taxes, as there  no     sense   in " the "city" borrowing-  money at 7 pereentand then spending  it on  grants  to private institu  tions.    Mr.   Manly   mainly   maintained   that  private hospitals   were  usually   paying   investments.     He  had no doubt that the doctor   need  ed  the  money,   but   it was not the  fault of the hospital.    If he had not  made   so   many   unfortuaee investments, he would not  now   be   com  pelled   to   ask   for aid   of the city.  Mr. Manly contended that Dr. Kingston   had  been   well treated by the  city of Grand Forks.    Quoting from  tbe public accounts, he showed that  during 1914 the doctar  had drawn  nearly $1000 in fees from  city  patients and for salary as   city  health  officer.    He could  not  recommend  to   the   council  that   the  grant be.  made.    Aid. Bonthron   was  of  the  opinion that the question should he  referred   to   the   ratepayers.    Aid.  Bickerton thought the council would  be justified  in   making the grant, if  the ratepayers vote on   the last two  aid bylaws could be taken as a criterion of the will of the people on the  subject of  grants.    He was,    how  ever,    perfectly    willing   to  let the  people  decide   the   question.    Aid.  Smith   would   rather let the matter  go to tbe people, even if the council  had   thc   authority   to   make   the  grant.    Aid.     Donaldson     thought  that if  the doctor wished   to   have  the questioa submitted to  the  people, there would be the place  to   let  it go     He would be quite satisfied  with that course being   taken.    Aid.  McCallum   took   the  same   view of  the question as Aid. Manly,   but he  was always willing to    consult   the  ratepayers.    In discussing  the matter,   he   added,  present conditions  would have to be considered.  If the  city was so poor that it bad  to  ask  its employees to donate one-fifth  of  their wages, it was too poor to make  any grants.    It was like taking the  money out of the pockets ef the city  employees and distributing it for do-  PATRIOT IS  The Dominion department of  agriculture will hold an agricultural  conference-in the Grand- Fork's  opera - house .in this city on Wednesday, March 3, at 8 o'clock  in the evening. The speakers /rho  will address the audience will be  Prof. W. T. McDonald, provincial  live stock commissioner; P. H.  Moore, superintendent of the Dominion experimental farm at Agas-  six, and H. Cuthbert, .industrial  commissioner, of Victoria. Mayor  Gaw will act as chairman of the  meeting. All citizens are requested  to attend, and seats will be reserved  for ladies.  "Patriotism and Production" !b  the slogan adopted by the Canadian  department of agriculture in the  work undertaken. On the first point  those who meet the farmers Will ex.  plain that the suecess of the empire  in the tremendous military task now  before it depends to a very large extent on the continued ability to feed  the men who are risking their lives  in the line of battle. It will be urged-  that" those stayiug at home to.till  the goil should cultivate that which  will be "most wanted by Earl Kitchener in his efforts'to keep the millions soon to be in the field provided  with ..substantial food.- For weeks  the agricultural department has been  making use of all tbe 'government's  resources to obtain for the speakers  accurate general and statistical information, thus materially augmenting their own per������onal expert  knowledge. They are, expected to  inform tbe farmer in "each district*  having regard to the nature of- the  soil of that particular part of the  country, what he ^should grow in  largest quantities in order to best  help bis country in the present  crisis. In this instance, personal  and public interests go hand in  band, for it is reasonable to suppose  that if the farmer produces much of  what is most needed he is going to  be the most suecessful. ~  iii-i, v a* c(uit<H. rnii-1'!, at Victoria, as  the first bishop of tbe new diocese of  Kootenay. A large congregation  was present in Clmst chun-.h cathedral at ihe ce i ������������������ ony. Tin- archbishop of Rupertsland took the chief  part in the ceremony and w.ib assisted by five bishops of the church,  Bishop Pinkham of Calgary, Bishop  Du Vernot of Caledonia, iiishop l-^  Pencierof New Westminster, Bishop  .'.toper of Columbia,- and Bishop  Keator of Ulympia.  Bishop of Kootenay  Consecrated at Victoria  On Wednesday, with becoming  reverence and dignity, Alexander  John Doull, D. D, dean  of Colum  nations.  Aid. Donaldson gave notice that  at the next meeting he would ask  ieave to introduce a bylaw providing for a grant to Dr. Kingston's  hospital.  The chairman of the finance committee reported that he bad received the estimates from tbe water  and light department, the board of  works and the school trustees. They  were relerred to the finance committee.  The matter of engaging a caretaker for the city hall was referred  to the city clerk and the chairman  of the health and relief committee.  Aid. Bickerton thought a quarterly itemized statement from tbe  police department should be submitted to thecouncil. Some of the  aldermen thought a monthly report  would be more appropriate. Tbe  mayor said he would lay the wishes  of the council before the proper  officers of the department.  The Pedometer Habit  A famous New York doctor was  called upon some .months ago l������y a  patient who presented an appearance of illness, but with whom be  could find'nothing the motter. Quea  tioning disclosed the fact that he  had not taken regular physical exercise for years. "That's your trouble," remarked .the wise physician.  "I'll write you a prescription."  When he got outside the office the  patient opened the bit of paper and  read: "Get a pedometer and bring  it back to me in three weeks .with  the indicator pointing to 100 miles."  When, the patient returned at Lhe  time mentioned, the doctor, without making an examination, told  him he need not come back any  more. His looks demonstrated the  efficacy of the treatment But he  was compelled to persevere in keep  ing the pedometer busy and thereby  save many a doctor's fee. ���������  There are imaginative patient!-,  most of whose troubles may be  traced to the "pedometer habit."  They are constantly taking their  temperature, and their feelings are  regulated by their dissoverits. A  splendid substitute is the "pedometer habit." Instead of continually  fussing to keep his temperature be  low 100, for instance, the possessor  of one of "these clever contrivances  can try how long it takes to send the  pedometer above that figure. Lots of  fun is to be obtained from ascertaining distances between various points  by walking them. Incidentally the  liver gets a good shaking up, the  lungs~T*eceive the fre&h air for the  lack of which they have been starving, and the enthusiastic pedestrian  feels a new joy of living. It is not  convenient for all to play that most  excellent of pastimes, golf. But the  pedometer game is available to most,  and it renders interesting what is,  alter all, a rather monotonous form  of exercise.  An enthusisastic meeting of the  Grand Forks Liberal association was  held in tbe board of trade rooms on  First street last night. President  Neil McCallum occupied the chair.  There were so many members present that the chairman, in opening  the meeting, sttated that he could  plainly see that in future a larger  hall would have to be provided.  Speeches of an optimistic nature regarding the future prospects^ of the  party in tbe province were made by  tbe president, E. C. Henniger, John  Donaldson, R. Campbell and other  members. They all condemned the  maladministration of the present  government, and expressed the  opinion that a provincial election  would be precipitated upon the electorate shortly after the adjournment  of the legislature. Ed Hardy, in  lieu of exercising his oratorical  privileges, kept those present in the  best of humor by distribing a couple  of boxes of choice cigars.  A resolution was adopted in-  struing the secretary to write to tbe  president of the district association  and request him to call a meeting  of the Liberal assaciations of-the riding at as early a date as  possible.  A  resolution   that    the  meeting  -proceed   to  select' delegates  to the  nominating convention brought  out  considerable discussion, some  members   contending    that    the   action  would   be  rather   premature.    The  resolution was finally adopted, however, without a dissenting voice, and  the following delegates were chosen:  P. H.Donaldson,Neil McCallum, E.  C Henniger, Ed Hardy,  E. J. Fitz  patrick; alternates, R. Campbell, B.  Lequime, J. A. Smith, H. H. Spinks  and  H.   W.   Gregory.    It was   the  sense of tbe meeting that  the nominating convention should    be   held  immediately after the passage of the  redistribution bill by the legislature.  The matter of an available  candidate was also discussed at considera  hie  length, but  no  conclusion was  arrived at on this point.  The third contingent of the Grand  Forks Sharpshootsre did not leave  for the coast this week, as was anticipated in our last issue. At this  time it is not known when tbe boys  will entrain, although it is stated  that it will be within a few days.  The prevalence of a coutagious sickness in Nelson is reported to have  been the cause of a change in the  movement of the troops.

This gives  the property an output capacity of  approximately 70 per cent normal.  It is likely, says the Mining Age,  that the March meeting of the directors will produce something in  the way of dividends after the June  payment in 1914, amounting to  $1.59 per share. It is expected that  cy the time of the next dividend in  June, 1915, the company will have  accumulated sufficient profits to  permit resumplien of dividends, and  there are those who would express  no surprise at a Granby dividend iu  March.  Many a man's conceit is due to  ignorance.  Honest labor is the best wheel of  fortune.  1? /  *$/���������'���������'. ���������"MM iii v/i**i** rani  THE    SUN,  GRAND  FORKS,    B. C.  DIOCESE WILL TAKE  IN IHE NORTH POLE  Bishop Has 6,000 Indians and Eskimos of the Far North Under  His Charge  ".My diocese is at least famous for  one tiling, and that is���������it contains the  North Pole!" This is the way the  Bishop of Mackenzie river speaks of  his huge diocese of land and river  Willi only 6,000 inhabitants, says the  Churchman. The people, chiefly Indians and Esquimaux, with here and  there a white man engaged in the  work of a fur trapper, are scattered  about all up and down the country,  and journeys of enormous length and  many perils have to be undertaken to  reach them..  For all this great'diocese the staff  of workers can be counted on one's  lingers; besides , the Bishop and his  ���������wife there are only seven clergy and  live laymen. Six new recruits���������priests  and laymen���������have just begun work,  end things will soon begin to go forward. The Bishop has labored in this  country for twenty-three years. Tlie  area comprising his charge is brought  ' vividly home to us when he tells that  though he was elected Bishop in October, 3 012, the news never reached  him until January, 1913, and It was not  until August of last year that his consecration took place at Winnipeg.  Fort McPherson is the most northerly station, and here Archdeacon Whit-  taker is in charge. About three hundred and fifty Indians live in the township, and they are all Christians, all of  whom belong to the Anglican church.  All these Indians have been carefully  educated by the missionaries and can  read the Bible in their own tongue,  ���������while more than three hundred Eskimos have been baptized in the last  five years. They are an intelligent  race, who are not only quick to assimilate, all the truths which are taught  them, eager to pass on to others of  their tribes the good news which has  so changed their own lives.  The missionaries naturally have to  acquire the native language before  they can proceed far in their good  work. Bishop Lucas know/'two Indian dialects ,and has himself compiled a dictionary containing 11,000  Indian words. There are two distinct  tribes of Indians���������the Tukudh and the  Slavi. Each of these speaks a language of" their own, while the Eskimo  tongue is something entirely different.  The Bishop has high words of praise  for the Eskimos. "Some of them," he  said, "are a very fine set of men, tall  and well set up, and delightful in  character. They help the women in  all the work, and are indeed nature's  gentlemen."  Emancipation of Egypt  Educated Men in Ranks  European  War  Proves That Soldiers  Do Not Have to be'Brutal to be  ,  Brave  That physical bravery is necessary  iu the men making up an army in tne  field is accepted by every one, and it  appears to be particularly essential  in the present conflict where every  visible body of men is met by showers of projectiles of every size. To  calmly meet such conditions, says the  Scientific American, it has" been customary to assume that a particular  class of men were necessary, men of  callous disposition, of hardened minds.  Man need not be brutal to be physically brave.  Never, since the the time when men  first marched into battle, have armies  taken the field in which there was  "'such:a high average ot education and  refinement as in these contending  hosts on the French and Belgian battle  grounds. Among these four or more  millions of men we doubt if a corporal's guard can be found that is not  able to read and write. And the grade  of culture extends from that of the  state schools up to the highest erudition of the colleges and universities. ������������������  War may be brutal; but the deeds of  the citizen-soldier in this unparalleled  test of the twentieth century have  proved that there is not the remotest  relation between brutality and bravery. Rather, we have learned that the  mental, moral and artistic uplift of  the age we live in, so far from stripping the race of the sterner qualities of  The Turk Has Been Driven From  Power and Stable Government  Established  Jiow many know who is thn actual  sovereign of 'Egypt? Most of us supposed him to be Kitchener, ihe British  occupation has run so long. But the  actual de' jure sovereign of Egypt s  the Sultan of Turkey. The Khedive  was only his tributary vassal. Of  course since the Brtish occupation Lhe  Khedive has always been "advised" by  resident English officials. And so" long  as thc Sultan behaved himself and remained neutral, the English have  never had a good excuse for driving  out the Turk.  It is said that nothing in ihe course  of recent events has so pleased Kitchener as Turkey's declaration of war.  Kitchener is still agent and consul-  general of Egypt, and his pleasure  may be supposed to arise from perfect  confidence in the ability of the British troops in Egypt to send the Turks  about their business for good and all.  That means the lifting of an eternal  worry from British statesmanship.  Egypt has long been subject to a perfect chaos of jurisdiction. The Turk  has always to be reckoned with, first  of all. And the Germans and Austriaus  have long been financially and socially  powerful in Cairo and Alexandria, and  were always intriguing against the  British. And all the while the Turks  were simply agents of German machination.  This ends now. The Turk is edged  back nearer to where he belongs, with  a push from this quarter while another push is being administered from  the north at the hands of Russia. In  his place in Egypt a new nation will  speedily develop. Eor Egypt is a rich  land, and the real Egyptian is a thrifty individual who seeks nothing but  peace and an opportunity to prosper.  With every chance now of obtaining  those desirable commodities, a lasting peace in that quarter of the- world  looks to be assured. Egypt produces  more an'd more cotton but of a quality  that is not in competition with the  American product. We can watch the  Egyptian output grow with entire  equanimity. It will rather serve as an  addition to the world's wealth in  which we shall share rather than suffer.���������Portland (Me.) Express.  T  Loyalty of India  De-  Indian Prince Said'to be Direct  scendant of Mohammed '  A good (leal has been written about  the danger to which the British empire in India would be subject if the  Mahommedans, numbering nearly 70,-  000,000 should seize the occas'on of  Great Britain's preoccupation in Europe to declare or join in the holy Avar  against the infidel. As a matter of  fact no contingency could be more  unlikely. At the head of the Mahommedans 'of India is the Aga Khan, Sultan Mahommed Shah, who is accepted  as a direct:descendant of the prophet  through his daughter Fatinia. It is  difficult to convey any adequate idea  of the profound influence exerted by  the Aga Khan as the spiritual head  of his co-religionists. It is not too  much to say that no Mahommedan in  India would act against his counsel.'  The mother of the present Aga  Khan was a princess of the ruling  house of Persia, but. the Aga Khan  not only received the highest religious  education that the Orient could supply, but also a thoroughly sound training along the lines of western civilization. He has travelled extensively,  and is a man of the highest personal  character.  If anything were needed 'to explain  the devoted loyalty which the Aga  Khan has always shown toward British rule in India it might be found in  the fact that when his grandfather  was driven from Persia as a.young  man early in the nineteenth century,  he sought and found asylum������ under  the British flag in Bombay. It is one  of fate's merry jests that Khan, among  the many tokens of recognition which  he has received, possesses a medal of  the first class of the Order of the  Prussian Crown, conferred upon him  in 1901.       .  ' ���������  British Soldier Died as Bravely as  Brave Man' Should ���������  How a straggling British- soldier  was captured and shot by Germans  unjustly as a spy is narrated by a  United States war correspondent  who  witnessed  the execution.  "It-happened at a village near  Nieuport, he says. I. was in my  quarters when 1 heard the soldiers  outside the door crying out 'ICng-  lisch! Englisch!' I ran out and saw  some Uhlans bringing . in a man  dressed in civilian clothes but wearing a khaki shirt. He was unmistakably a British soldier. lie was  a big, blonde fellow, woefully dirty,  unshaven, his hair all matted. '  "Some of the German soldiers who  knew English pointed at him, shouting to me, 'Spy! Spy!' I followed  the little procession as far > as' a  farmhouse where the headquarters  of this German outpost were. I  knew tlie follow was English, you  know, and I, wanted to see fair.  "They told me they had caught  him spying, and had taken a Lot of  plans and notes away from him. I  didn't know anything about the  man myself, not even the name of  his regiment, except that I could  tell by his appearance that he was  not an officer���������for all I know lie  may simply have been one of the  English who were cut off in the ''e-  treat from Antwerp. and was trying  to make the British or Belgian lines.  "They were in the house about an  hour. Theu they brought him out,  just four men with loaded rifles and  an officer. He was not bound, but  walked quite free between his  guards, very straight and calm and  quite unmoved.  "At the sight of that Englishman  going to his death with eyes shining, head up and shoulders squared,  the tears fairly came into my eyes.  I forgot all about being a neutral, all  about being, an American. a'nd all  about the Germans and and just felt  I couldn't bear to see what was going  to come. As he passed me I said  aloud���������I felt I had to speak���������'Goodbye, old chap, and good luck!' lie just  turned his head and looked at me and  smiled a-little smile as if to thank me  and to say he did not mind.  "They stood him up in the middle  of the road. Away in the distance,  down the road a German regiment  was coming along with noisy drums  and fifes. As the firing squad���������just  the four guards���������stood back to take  up their positio i' the Englishman  drew himself up at attention with a  click of the heels, braced liis shoulders and threw up his head, game  and brave to the last, ft was all  over in a second.

Tommy Atkm s War Bread  "You're sure, darling, that you wo/i't  tell  a   soul?"  insisted    the    ilapper  schoolgirl of her bosom chum.  "Madge," declared the other, in a  manhood, has stiffened immeasurably  hurt voice, "do I ever tell your sec-  Its pluck, tenacity and courage. rets?   But I couldn't help seeing you  British   Retaliated  An amusing little tale is told by a  Red   Cross   lady,   and   how   condign  punishment was    meted    out  by an  Englishman.    "I  do    enjoy   the   jollity,   smartness,    and    incomparable  phlegm of the English!    In    one of  the trains was a hulking great German prisoner, who leaned out of the  window  and shoutecl  to  me:   "Some  chocolate and bread, quick!    I  took  no notice,    but:  an    English soldier  with   a   wounded     foot     asked     me  what he had said.    I told  him,  and  he limped    up,    stood    on the  step,  and suddenly  let    out^such   a  blow  as I have seldom seen," knocking the  German senseless on the floor of the  carriage.    He then  touched his  cap,  replaced his pipe in his mouth, and.  walked      off    whistling    without    a  word!"  This  man   evidently  remembered Kitchener's gospel of courtesy  to women,,   and  enforced    it in   his  own way.  Part of the Durable' Rations Carried  by Soldiers While on the  March  Every army in time of war carries  what is called Avar bread, which  forms a part of the durable rations,  and is intended to be eaten if necessary while, on the march. The German soldier receives for his war  bread a zwieback, in Avhich are mixed together 100 grammes of raised  dough and 10 grammes of cooked rice  together Avith salt. Beaten eggs and  sugar are added to the dough in order to improve its flavor, and lo increase the nourishing power. The  proportion is 500 eggs to 100 kilogrammes of flour. Finally, potato  flou-- is used, it .is said, to preA'ent  tlie bread fioru "growing stale too  easily, and caraway seed gives it the  necessary spiciuess.  The Austro-IIungarian soldiers  carry their durable ration of bread  packed in small cotton bags. This  bread is shaped like a sausage, and  consists of- wheat flour, potato flour,  eggs, unskimmed milk, malt, cinnamon, nutmeg and yeast.  In France each soldier receives as  his durable ration ten loaves of  bread, each of which is 70 millimetres long, (j5 millimetres broad,  and 25 millimetres thick. In any  case, this bread does not taste as  good, nor is it as nourishing as the  Austrian bread, for the "piou-piou,"  ns the French infantry man is called,  must be satisfied with a loaf which  is made only of flour, yeast and.water.  The war bread of the Italians and  Roumanians is very similar-to that  of France. It is, though, somewhat  larke'r and has a uniformly smooth  crust. .   .  The Swiss soldier earriea his war  bread Avith him in a .small pasteboard box. Each of thess little packages containE five small loaves,  which weigh altogether only 250  grammes.  The light colored war bread of the  English is kept in good condition n  small soldered tin boxes.  The Belgians give their soldiers a  war bread made of Hour, sugar, and  eggs, .each loaf having forty punctures.

Contributed   by   Dr.  Heber  Jamiesont  Professor of Bacteriology in the  University of Alberta  Fresh air is an absolute essential  lo good health. The lung takes from  the atmosphere one of its gases���������  oxygen, Avhich is used to keep the  system in its normal state. Every  breath we take in carries the necessary oxygen to the small air cells in  the lungs. Every breath we send out  is charged with another gas which 's  thrown off by the body cells as waste  material.  The transfer of these two ..ases is  made between the lv.ngs and the small  cells of which the whole body is madu  by means of red corpuscles of the  blood. These little messengers must  be healthy in order to do their work  Avell and sufficient numbers must be  maintained to give the best service.  If a person becomes anaemic there is  a falling off in the numbersof tlie  rod cells. As each one of these can  carry only a certain amour.t'of oxygen at- a time thc body suffers in consequence of the diminished supply.  Every room contains a certain  amount of oxygen and when that is  exhausted the body suffers. The air  inhaled now contains the Avaste gas  which av;c have just disposed of and we .  must therefore take it into our lungs  again and try to impose this on the-  blood cells. They are not tc bo deluded and if the imposition is persisted7 in-the person faints for lack of tho  ,-ife'sustaining oxyyi-n.  The more people there are breathing ",tbe same air the sooner it is vitiated. In the country the atmosphere  is more pure.

Protecting  Implements From  Rust  A correspondent or the Breeders'  Magazine gives this advice on this subject:  Housing fails because it does not  keep.the rioisture laden atmosphere  from contact with the surface of the  steel.: There are.many cheap gummy  or oily substances that will protect a  bright plough or hoe or other farm  tool.: I have found heavy unrefined  oil, effective and easily applied. Axle  grease is use'd so generally for waggons that many farmers apply that. It  is more expensive and more difficult to  spread so as to cover the entire surface of the, tool. Unrefined cottonseed  oil and the low grade catsor oil spread'  readily and carry gum and oil enough  to dry slowly and cover well, and they  do not dry so hard as linseed oil,  which prevents the plough or hoe from  scouring readily.  A barrel of heavy lubricating oil on  the farm will save any further outlay  frr: axle grease or machine oil. It is  good for killing vermin on animals  and for protecting tools from rust���������  if only we.get the men to apply it.  The Unlucky Belgian  What Will be Done Wi'th_ Refugees  From Belgium?

Manly  expressed the sentiments of a  majority'of the ratepayers  of  Grand Forks when he stated,  at a meeting of the city council a couple "of weeks ago, that  rather than to  grant aid  to  any   private   institution^   he  would lika   to see the city's  finances husbanded in such a  manner that  a  reduction  in  the taxation of city- property  could be made. This is a most,  sensible view to take  of this  matter.     Too  many  persons  and  institutions  have  in the  past applied to'the council for  aid whenever they got in financial tronble.    If the practice  is not  discountenanced it will  soon  become    unbearable to  a large number' of ratepayers.  To  the   recipients   of   these  grants    the   increased   taxes  entailed matters very litile, but  to the poor taxpayer it "often  means  that his property has  to  be  sold at tax sale.    The  plea is usually put forth  that  the institution or organization  is of public benefit.    There is  not a business concern or  institution in the city that is not  of some public benefit, but  if  all  were  to  be  aided by the  city the public treasury would  soon be bankrupt.    The most  rational way is  treat them all  alike.    Those that are worthy  will    survive   by   their   own  merit.    A public aided concern   is   like  a    "remittance  man."    They do not put forth  their best efforts  as long as  they   have a steady income.  Before  quitting  this   subject  we desire to  direct attention  to  Aid. McCallum'r remarks  regarding grants,  at the last  meeting   of   the city council.  There is food for reflection in  what he said.  The subsitution of the moving picture sho"r for the drama  and opera has reduced the  intellec-ual amusement of the  people to a great extent.  This Ontario government is  clearing 32,000 acres of wild  land with labor which otherwise would be unemployed.  There is plenty of land to  clear in British Columbia, and  there is a market for all that  land would produce if cultivated, but our government,  which claims a surplus of six  millions or so in the treasury,  can do nothing for the  ployed.���������Victoria Times.

Win and HoJd Your Position  in Business by Steadfastness in Attack  P  orks oxm  For   many years   the   Strassfurt  mines in Germany have been   practically the sole, source of the potash  compounds used for fertilizing   pur  poses on this continent.   Among the  evil, effects resulting from the present war, therefore, may   Demounted  the cutting off from the markets of  the world the supply of this material.    Dr.  Shutt, Dominion  chemist,  regards this circumstance   as not so  serious ad some  may  consider.    In  order to place bis views   before   the  farmers   of  Canada, Dr. Shutt  has  issued   Circular No    17, of the experimental  farm, "Potash  in Agri-I  culture."    It  takes   up the  sublect|  under several bead.������ and reaches the  following conclusions:  "It is only our   light,  sandy end  gravelly soils that are markedly deficient in potash, and this dementis  only   specially   called for by clover,  potatoes, roots and learfy crops   gen'  erally.   There is yet some potash in  the market, though it will probably  have to be purchased in tbe form of  a complete fertilizer.  -We have several   Canadian   sourees  of    potash  available   to   the    farmer-notably  liquid manure, wood ashes and   sea  weed���������materials rich in  this useful  constituent and which are   more  or  less   readily   obtainable   in   many  parts of the Dominion.    And lastly,  there   are   the indirect pota.si,; fertilizers, which though not adding to  the   sum  total  of the soil's potash,  yet may serve a useful   purpose   by  .liberating it in available forms and  thus , in times such. as   the present  may help to tide us over until potash  compuunds are available once  more  upon the market."

Free Notices in Press  The Ottawa Journal, in a recent  fcditorial.makescommentjon the con  tiuual demand for newspaper space  by people who want various organizations or events "boosted" by  publicity.  Few people realize  that so called  "reading notices" should   properly  be classed as advertising and should  be paid for as such.    The fact that  every free reading notice inserted in  a newspaper is equivalent to a cash  contribution from the paper is ably  brought out in the editorial in question, which follows:  "Newspapers would like the public to recognize more than the public  does that every line of newspaper  space represents actual cash to the  newspaper in cost; that every free  notice of a charitable or religious  undertaking is simply a straight  subscription equivalent to money  from the newspaper.  ���������'It h gratifying, therefore, t> find  a plain statement of the cate from a  source not affiliated with any newspaper, IS.

" 'We,' said Mr. Moore,  speaking  of  those   engaged   in   the various  branches of organized charity in New  York state, ������do not ask the stationer  to contribute the paper we use.   We  do not ask the owners of the buildings   we   occupy   to contribute our  quarters.   But we do ask the newspapers to do the equivalent by giving   us   space   which  is  money to  them.'

Jn the fullest sense of the words Dr.  Morse's Indian Root Pills are        47  A Household  Remedy  THE INDIANS' GRIEF  "Bobs" Had Warm Place in the Heart  of the'Soldier  Tlie last visit of Lord Roberts to the  army in tho field Is described in a  communique issued    by    the    Press  Bureau.   Thc aged field marshal paid  visits to headquarters of divisions and  those of the cavalry.   "At each place  two men from each unit, British and  Indian, were drawn up for inspection,  and tbe field marshal paused here ano  there -with a kindly question, in I-Iiflttii-  stani, which was  keenly appreciated  by those who had the honor to represent their corps.    Nearly every man  had come straight from the trenches;  but  in  spite  of  the    severe    strain  which they have undergone'they looked keen, hard and soldierly. At each  halt Lord Roberts said a few words of  welcome and encouragement to the officers assembled to meet him, bidding  them as their colonel in chief to re-  ��������� member that the Indian corps, the first  imperial contribution to the empire's  armies in the field, would be joined  by other contingents one and all determined to bring the struggle against  a powerful and relentless enemy to the  only possible conclusion."  ���������   The news  of Lord- Roberts'  death  was reecived everywhere with expressions of profound grief, and spread so  quickly among the Indian officers and  rank and file that there were few who  had not heard it at the extreme flank  of the corps line before the day was  far advanced.    Only  one  other Englishman has attained to anything near  the place which Lord Roberts filled in  the heart of the Indian soldier, and  that was John Nicholson. But it is safe  to say that the  devotion    to    Lord  Roberts has had a measure of human  affection in it which no other English  man has been able to command.  Dr. Blomficld, a former Bishop of  London, was a widower with children.  He married a widow with children,  and he had a family by his second  wife. One day this lady rushed into  .the library and said in an excited  tone: "Do come to the nursery; your  children and my children are endeavoring to kill our children."

Hoover, chairman of the  American commission which Is taking  charge of the Belgian relief in Holland, has forwarded to Canada the  following statement of the urgent  needs of the��������� famine-stricken people:  The American commission for relief  work in Belgium, which is composed  of representatives of the United'  States, Italy and Spain, acting under  the authority' of all belligerent governments, desire to express their appreciation of Canada's magnificent response  to Belgium's cry of distress. 'He gives  twice who gives quickly,' was never  bolter proven than it was by Canada.,  from which Dominion assistance was  quickly rendered.  "The difficulty of procuring food  supplies in Europe and the necessities of tho people in Belgium increase  almost proportionately, until the hope  of help is gradually being narrowed  to rolianco upon the ' generosity of  those who livo on the North American continent. Thousands of tons of  supplies, including those brought by  the Nova Scotlan ship Tremorvah,  have ben distributed, yet there' are  pitiful requests for -assistance from  small and large Belgian villages.  "To supply 'the actual necessities  of the seven million people remaining'in Belgium, reliable authorities  estimate, that S0.000 tons of foodstuffs  will be required throughout the winter.  What is most needed is wheat, flour,  corn, cornmeal, beans, peas, potatoes,  biscuits bacon and money.  "The freight and all shipping ex-  peases on every cargo of such supplies will gladly be paid by the commission for relief, who will also pay  all expenses incurred in the actual  distribution of the supplies in Belgium.  "Canada, with-her great resources,  is in a splendid position to help. She  has already done much, but we do  not hesitate in these appalling circumstances to ask her to do more.  (Sgd.) "HERBERT C.

Every five minutes a soldier would  enter to remind the unfortunate that  they had so many minutes left to live.  When the half hour had expired, all  were brought out led before a file of  soldiers and lined up in a row.  "Some wished to cover their eyes,  but the soldiers forced - down their  arms with bayonets. They were kept  in this agony of suspense for another  half ah hour, before the order was  given'to fire. So fierce were the repeated- volleys that tlie dead were  hardly recognizable. Any .who showed signs of life were promptly despatched either with the butt end of a  rifle, or a bayonet.  "Tlie town was thoroughly looted,  the soldiers sparing not even the  homes of the poor, while the jewelery  shops were stripped of their stocks.  Two hundred and eight houses were  set on fire.  ���������  "I counted in, a ditch 23S civilians  who had been shot.  "In Dinant, civilians, as the world  has already heard, perished by the,  hundreds. Perhaps' 1,000 were killed.  The men'were shot in the presence  of their wives and children. They  were first riddled with rifle" bullets  and then cut into shreds by machine  gun lire.  "The commander adopted a lofty  tone in regard to ��������� the whole matter,  asserting that thes? methods were  necessary in order that the Belgian  nation might be properly impressed.  He was lo refrain from acts calculated to prolong the horrors of war. He  said that the Belgians had killed  enough Germans in Liege and 'sniped'  enough unsuspecting soldiers to warrant 'any sort of retribution whatever.' "  World's Record  For Tunnel-Boring is  Broken on  tl.e- C.P.R.  Rogers'  Pass Tunnel  World's records- for tunnel-boring  have been established by Messrs.  Foley Bros., "WJelch.and Stewart, contractors on the C.P.R. Rogers' Pass  tunnel scheme. Last month, states  Mr. A. C. Dennis, superintendent of  construction for the contractors, 817  feet of thc "pioneer" heading���������the  preliminary shaft running parallel to  the main passage, from which operations are directed at several points���������  was excavated. The American record  for a month's tunnel boring was 810  feet and this feat was accomplished in  31 ^lays, while there was only 30  clays last month.  Tho maximum amount of excavation  on a tunnel heading for a day was  formerly 3G feet this projection being  accomplished on tl.e Simplon tunnel  through the Alps. This record was  eclipsed one day last month on the  tunnel through the Solklrks when 37  feet was excavated. The world's record  was beaten also for a week, 22 feet  of rock being, bored.  As a result of tho rapid progress  now being - inaue with the tunneling  operations, tho contractors are now  confident that they will put the Rogers' Pass tunnel through several  months earlier than their contract  with the Canadian Pacific calls for.  The five mile, double tracked passage  though the base of Mount Macdonald  is to be ready, according to the terms  of the firm's agreement by the end  of 1910. At the present rate of projection it is estimated that the tunnel  will be completed in the summer of  191G.  There remains 10,000 feet of the  "pioneer" shaft yet to be driven, 10,-  640 feet having already been bored.  At the west end of ��������� construction 817  feet of the preliminary shaft,,and 640'  feet of the main passage was excavated last month. From the eastern portal 527 feet of the former and 588 feet  of the latter was projected.  Although the work has been well  advanced the hardest art of the actual  boring has yet to be done. Mr. Dennis states that the next two ' miles  through the heart" of the mountain  will have to be dug out of a particularly hard kind of rock.  COLT DISTEMPER  Can bo handled very easily.

Terman    in     the  Forum:  All writers on the precocity of ge-  .nius have noted the frequency with  which it is confined to particular lines,  while in other respects there.may be  no unusual promise. The mathematical prodigies, for example are, as a  class, notoriously one-sided in their  ability, as aro also the wonder children of music and the stage. The precocity of the latter is contlned chiefly  to   their  emotional   development.  The narrowing ot interests and talents is always an event to be deplored, and against its premature appearance parents- and teachers should religiously stand guard. Sometimes  cnildren who could be fitted for quiet  and useful lives aro "staged" on account of some insignificant gift of nature, such as ability to perform feats  of memory or of arithmetical calculation, with the result that all the  other, interests atrophy and the personality dries up. The emotions become distorted, and nothing remains  but a caricature of what a human being should be. .Under this kind of  treatment even the rudiments of common sense sometimes disappear, leaving the person practically an imbecile  in all respects except his particular  gift.

"When the aviator spotted a party  of Uhlans ho signalled down to tho  cars where they were.

C.  &  E HEROIC PART PLAYED BY  RENCH ARMY IN THE WAR  HAVE PROVED A SURPRISE TO THE WHOLE WORLD  The Morale of tlie French  Army  was., not Affected  by  Initial  Defeats when the Germans Advanced on Paris, and their  Valiant Resistance won Tributes from the Enemy  For various reasons, France has  geenied during the past two months  io have partially dropped- out of  American thought and sympathies.  Throughout August and the first'part  of September, her apparently impending tragic fate was ever present to  our minds. Next after Belgium, she  most appealed. But since the staying  of the tide of invasion north of Paris,  we have somehow givon less attention  to tho place of the French in the terrible coll of ,war. Both the pathos  and the crisis of the'struggle have ap-  fteared to be located elsewhere. And  he great qualities displayed by the  French people, during all this time of  the trying of their souls, have not  Impressed themselves upon our consciousness ������������������'... and our, imagination so  powerfully as they might have been  expected to do. At least, so it might  be judged from cu- ent talk and the  drift "of discussion and the perspective of the war news.  ��������� But few words need be spent upon  the military aspects of the matter.  That the French' army surprised the.  world, is- generally admitted. And it  is worth while noting upon what  point admiration of it has focused.  This- was its splendid' recovery of  jspirit after initial defeats. That was  scarcely looked for. "When German  army after German army drove back  the French in August, when there  were, evidences of uncertainty and  confusion in the French military  plans, when more than one French  general in command was guilty of incompetence or worse, it looked asif  the boasts of the German bulletins  might be better -justified than we like  ^to admit, and that "Gen. Joffre's army  *was incapable of further resistance."  But all this "was soon proved false.  The morale of the French army reasserted itself promptly; and the. valiant and determined and inexpugnable front which It' has since opposed to the Germans has wrung tributes from. even, the enemy. .The  transformation of the dashing French  trooper into. the. soldier with a bulldog grip has been described by the  president of the French republic. "As  the course of thc hostilities has gone  its way," wrote M. Poincare to the  minister of war, "the French soldier,  while losing nothing of his impetuosity and courage, has learned,by experience to adapt his natural qitali ties  to the demands of the military operations. He maintains an unequalled  power on the offensive and at the  same'time schools himself in patience  and in tenacity." .The known facts  bear out the assertion.  It is, however, mainly the manifestation of French" national character  away from the actual fighting that  kindles admiration. Even the ardent'  .lovers of France could, hardly, have  counted upon so fine an exhibition.  Most of the traits which-we proverbially and all   too   lightly   associate  with the French people have gleamed  by their absence. There was little  that looked like-unbalancing excitement or panic of soul. Nor was there  much, posturing or rhetoric. In the  face of what was certainly a fearful  danger, and \yhat might easily result  in a national catastrophe, France was  calm. The people summoned all their  reserves of,strength and capacity to  endure," and gave, tbe world an inspiring example of a nation prepared to  drain the bitterest cup without whimpering.', The indomitable spirit with  which men" and women in France  made ready to go through inevitable  sufferings and misery,. together with  their energy in resisting the thrust of  disaster at every point possible, their  fertility of resource and of hope in the  dark days ,and the fine resilience with  which they bent back like tempered  steel to their assigned tasks, will compel many a hasty critic to revise his  opinion of French lightness and instability. Never did France rise to a  higher stature. ���������  To the attitude of her men of  science, her writers, her professors,  separate reference mayr be made.  Amid the devastation of Avar, France  has clung with pathetic eagerness to  her art, her literature, her -uiversiries.  The University of France opened its  doors as usual. What though hundreds of its students, were with the  army and many of its professors were  doing military service? it was for  the university to go. on with its work  in dignity- and serenity. The great  tradition must me maintained. As it  is expressed, by Rene Doumic, who  himself passed his first year at college in a besieged,Paris,'in 1870, "the  university does not admit that a single  one of those who have the honor to  belong to it is not at his post"���������  whether that post be in a trench or  in a classroom. Either way, the magnificent union of French hearts is  shown, as is also the. "nobly humane"  nature of.the culture for which France  stands steadfast..  -All'that we have said can be admitted by even those most scrupulous  in- guarding against unneutral; conduct during this war. If the German  crown prince, if the kaiser himself,  can pause in the midst of conflict to  bestow; praise upon the high qualities, exhibited by the French, Americans need not feel it necessary to  stint their applause. For it is ,a kind  of. addition to the moral assets of the  world which.France has been making  in the course of these terrible months.  In being'forced-to think better things  of the French nature, we snail be  prevented from ever thinking meanly  of human nature in general. France  has unlocked her soul for the' nations  to see; and, so doing, helps- us to understand ot. what ��������� depths and what  heights, what tragedies, and. what  splendors, mankind is capable.���������New  York Evening Post.

To Death in Droves  British Praise For Bravery of German  ���������.. Doys --  Whatever deterioration, there may  be in the material now being.drafted  into the ranks of our enemy, it must  be admitted, says "Eye Witness" in a  report from headquarters, that the  Prussian, war machine .'.a, obtained  the most remarkable results. The  Germans have up to the present been  able to make good their ;os*ses, to  continue, to deliver, repeated blows  with fresh men when required and  where required, and to concentrate  largo forces in different directions. It  is true that a considerable proportion  of the masses recently thrown into  the field against the British has consisted .of easily trained and immature men; but the great fact remains  that these.ill assorted levies have not  hesitated to advance against highly  trained troops.  In spite of lack of officers, in spite  of inexperience, boys of sixteen and  seventeen have faced our guns, marcn-  ed steadily up to the muzzles of our  rifles, and have met death in droves,  without flinching. ���������  DEVASTATED POLAND  How Germans Shine in Work of Destruction  A remarkable picture of the destruction wrought by the Germans in Poland to delay the Russian advance is  given in an official statement from  Petrograd. The enemy (it says) began to retreat towards' his frontier,  destroying the railways and roads  wholesale. All along the railways the  Germans blew up and burned the station buildings and completely destroyed the water towers and mains and  the signals. On some "of the lines!  the enemy destroyed ��������� the railways  where poiLtB were laid, thus necessit:  ating the laying of new rails.  The Germans blew up all the  bridges and aqueducts���������even the  smallest���������so thoroughly that they  could not be repaired and had to be  entirely rebuilt. On the roads, too, all  the bridges were destroyed and the  roads themselves systematically dug I  or blown up from, both sides like a  cheese board. The enemy overthrew  the telegraph posts, broke the Insulators and cut the wires everywhere.  Origin of the  Russian Empire  History of the Slavic Race From the  ���������' Beginning of the Middle Ages  "The great plains of Eastern Europe, extending from the Oder river  to the Ural mountains, have been inhabited, from the beginning of the  Middle Ages, by people of Slavic origin. ' Th<T"Slavs are a while race, from  the same stock as the other pepple of  Europe;' their language like the Latin,  the Greek, and tho German, is from  the Aryan. ��������� This Slav race," which  Charles Seignobes tells us is "the most  numerous of all the western races, is-  divided into several nationalities; to  the Avest are the Polesand the Czechs,  of Bohemia, to the south the Croates,  the Servians and the Bulgarians, established in the Byzantine empire.  The Slavs of the oast had remained  divided Into tribes down to the ninth  century. They cultivated the land,  and lived in. villages composed of  houses of wood; their towns were only  enclousures surrounded by a wall of  earth and a ditch. Here they took  refuge in time of war. It was thc warlike Northmen, coming from Sweden,  who gathered-these tribes into one nation: it was called the Russian nation,  as that was the name of the country  from which came their chiefs."  "This old Russia,'' he goes on in a  subsequent paragraph, "included; the  country of the lakes and the region of  the Dnieper; that is, the western part  of modern Russia,- known as Little  Russia," but this Russia did not succeed in forming a permanent state,  for, as he explains, "in the thirteenth  century there were 72 principalities. An. army of 300,000 Tartar  horsemen came -from Asia anil destroyed all7 these small states, and from  the thirteenth to the fifteenth century  the whole of Russia was subject to a  Mongol prince, . the Great Khan ot  the Horde cl'Or, who dwelt in a village on the shores  of the Volga."  During this lime, ' Mr. .Seignobos  shows us, the "Russians of the west  had colonized gradually the desert like  forests in the east:'and .had created a  new Russian n'ation. The princes of  Moscow, in assuming the burden of  collecting the tribute paid to the Tartar Khans, had become the most powerful sovereigns of the country. For  two centuries they, aided by the Tartar armies, labored to subdue the ���������principalities."'Finally, "in the sixteenth  century tlie great princes of Moscow  became free from the Tartar dominion  and Ivan IV. took the title of czar,  that is king (1547). " The true Russia , henceforth is at the east, the  country of the Volga river, Greater  Russia. The village of Moscow, built  at the foot of the citadel of the Kremlin, became the capital of the new  empire."

After biddin- farewell to  his master, this secretary assembled  his family and close friends. He said  good bye to them and then shot himself dead, overcome with anguish that,  he could not accompany his master to  the field of battle.  The Maharaja is the .-filth ot the  Indian princes who have left India on  active .military service. He is the  adopted son of the celebrated Sir  Pertah Singh.  All peoples and creeds in India are  united today in enthusiasm for the  cause of the empire, he said..  "Every Indian, old and young, would  most gladly respond to the King-Emperor's call.' As only a comparatively  small number of men may go to the  battlefield at present, many officers  and Indians of high birth &vi going in  the ranks. You will probably be surprised to learn that my two saices, or  grooms, arc captains. My valet is very  well to do. They came with me in  these circumstances because it was  the only way they could come. Even  the grooms who came to Bombay with  our horses and then had to return  home went away dejectedly and in  tears."  He said the Maharaja of .Todpur,  seventeen years old, was anxious, despite his youth! to get into the fighting. His mother supported him in this  desire. Finally he wrote to the viceroy saying: "Why am I not allowed lo  go? I have three brothers, so if I  am killed in battle it does not matter."  The Maharaja said the presence of  Turkey on the other side of the conflict is a football of the Germans. She  cannot pretend to represent Mohammedanism.' All sections of India are  proud to be on the side of the empire.  For instance, Rajputana has an army  of 30,000'men, but no fewer than half  a million men have offered themselves  and areeager to aerve, Nepal has put  her whole force, 80,000 men, at the  emperor's disposal.  "if the battlefield were nearer and  not separated from India by'sea, the  Indians would go even without orders  to fight."  one at Kingston, Out., Montreal, and  Frederickton, N.B. The heavy battery  is mobilizing at Halifax, and the divisional ammunition column by sections at atllifax, Toronto, Winnipeg,  and Montreal. Two field 'companies  of engineers are being organized at  Ottawa.  The line of communication units  included in the second contingent  are provided, by the Army Service  Corps, with the exception of a general hospital section drawn from  McGill University.  The allocation of mounted infantry,  of which there is to be thirteen regiments, Is to be as follows: First regiment, Manitoba and Saskatchewan;  second, British Columbia; third, Alberta; fourth, Ontario; fifth, Quebec; and sixth, Maritime provinces.   *  The following are provisionally allotted: 7th and 8th regiments to pn-  tario, 9th and 10th to Manitoba and  Saskatchewan, 11th to British Columbia, and 12th and 13th to Alberta.  Under the heading of extra divisional infantry, there are seven regiments, the mobilization of which has  been in progress for some time.  These are the 20th battalion, Toronto;  23rd, Montreal and Quebec; 25th, Halifax; 28th and 32nd, Winnipeg; 30th,  Victoria, and 31st, Calgary.  In addition to~ these the nineteen  extra battalions recently arranged for  are being raised as follows: Ontario  33rd and 34th in the first-divisional  area; 35th, 36th and 7th in the second area, and 38th and 39th in the  third area. Quebec���������40th and ,41st  (French-Canadian), and .the 42nd in  the Maritime provinces.  There are also four regiments in  Manitoba and Saskatchewan, two in  British Columbia, and one in Alberta.  Indians Much Changed  "Husbapd and wife Cannot, by the  nature of things, be equal. There must  in every family be a strong, commanding, dominating personality."  "Yph; but that one is generally the  cook."  Canadian. Indians   Are   Influenced   by  Modern Surroundings  The number o" Indians, in Canada  remains..approximately at one hundred  thousand/according to the annual report of the Department of Indian "Affairs. The actual population,' including Eskimos, is placed at 107,221, an  apparent decrease of 2,716 as compared' with the previous year. This,  however, does not mark an actual decrease in numbers by death or emigration; but is due to the fact that it is  difficult to secure accurate statistics  for the interior of the far north, and  it was thought best to eliminate from  the census returns that'..were .merely  conjectural.  In Manitoba for the year there was  a decrease of 532, in New Brunswick  14, and in Prince Edward Island.4. In  Ontario the Indian population increased by 342, British Columbia 19.8,  Yukon 138, Quebec 03, Saskatchewan  SO, Alberta 52, an [ Nova Scotia 32.  The report states that the general  health of the Indians was good  throughout the year.  Owing to - the steadily increasing  measures adopted for providing medical attendance for the red men the  increase of the native medicine' man  is now restricted. As years go by  there is a marked change in the manner in which many of the Indians are  living. Modern influences are'becoming very noticeable on the reserves,  and it is how by no means uncommon to rind Indian honvs decently  furnished and comfortable. The total  value of grain and root crops raised  by the Indians during the year was  $1,856,424, an increase of $208,508 as  compared  with  the  previous  year.  The resources of the Kingdom and  the Empire, which look large upon  paper, are still larger than they may  have looked to some of our rivals, because we have been in the habit of estimating and using our real assets  much more conservatively than they.  We have also an advantage'over alii  the other-belligerents in that naval  power (which must always bo our  main contribution to the war), though  its money cost is higher in peace lime  titan that of a huge conscript land  army, adds much less fo its cost when  war breaks out, and interferes enormously less with the economic life of  the nation.���������London Chronicle.

Postal Facilities  At the   Front  Indian. Troops  Have Special Stamp���������  Series of Field.Post Offices  Handle Mails  Everything has to be provided, for  the use of the troops when a large  army takes the field and a post office,  sometimes within sound of the guns,  is not forgotten. The soldiers of the  army of India, who are now fighting  with the allied forces in France and  Belgium, are to have special stamps  to frank their letters home to their  friends and relations 'in the "shiny  land." Current Indian stamps have  been over-printed I. E. F.���������Indian Expeditionary Force���������and these, especially on the oriental envelopes will be  interesting souvenirs of the great  war.  Stamp collectors will recall that Indian stamps were over-printed C.E.F.  ���������China Expeditionary Force���������for the  use of the troops forming part of the  armies which crossed the border into  China. In 1900, 10 values, bearing  the portrait ot Queen Victoria, were  supplied over-printed in this way, and  these were used by the soldiers who  served under General Sir Alfred Gas-  elee. It may be of interest to recall  that on this occasion British and German troops fought side by side, and  the supreme command was held by a  distinguished German officer, Field  Marshal the Count Waldersee.  Some four years later nine value of  the Indian stamps bearing the.head of  King Edward, were similarly overprinted, and again in 1913, three of  the Georgian issue.  Tl.e cancellation used are very interesting and usually bear the date  alone and F.P.O. No. 1���������Field Post Office No. 1. A special staff is appointed  to deal with the army correspondence  and this usually comprises a subaltern officer at the army headquarters,  and at each of the field post offices  there is a sergeant or corporal with  from one to five assistants, the number, of course, varying according as  to whether tho office is attached to a  division or a brigade.  The French ai'my have always taken  particular care of their postal arrangements, while serving in tlie field, and  the system appears to have been introduced during the Spanish war af  1S23. This was before the introduction of postage stamps but it affords  an interesting parallel. The officer in  charge was called a commissary, and  there was an inspector with 3ach army  corps.  Then, there were postmasters, and  quite ii small army of couriers and  postillions���������called sous employees. All  were uniform, but were ranked as non-  combatants. After tho Crimean  campaign the commissary was called a  paymaster-general, and his assistants,  tresoriers payeurs, so that the functions of postmaster and director of  posts were undertaken by the pay department.

Write  at once to Canadian Department  of Agriculture, Ottawa, and to  your Provincial Agricultural Department for information as to  the best varieties of seed to be  used in your "particular locality,  and use no others.  ATTEND  YOUR  CONFERENCE  Clean Your Seed  All grain intended for.seed,  should be thoroughly cleaned  and selected to retain only  the strong kernels. You can  reap only what you sow. It  does not pay to sow weeds.  Clean seed means larger crops  and helps to keep the land clean.  When you have your seed grain  ready, put it through the cleaner  once more.  Test Your Seed  Test your seed for vitality,  too. Seed is not always as  good as it looks. For example,  oats, quite normal in appearance  and weight, may be so badly  damaged by frost that then-  value for seed is completely  destroyed. If you have any  doubt, as to the quality of your  seed a sampte may be sent free  to the seed laboratory at Ottawa,  or Calgary, for- test. But uv  most cases this simple test will  prove sufficient:���������  Take a saucer and two pieces  of blotting paper. Place seed  between blotting papers. Keep  moist and in a warm place.  In a few 4&ys, you will be afcle  to see whether the vitality is  there. ^Neglect to test your seed  may mean the loss of crc$. *'  The Farm Labour Problem        Increase Your Live Stock  The Government suggests the forming of an  active committee in every town and city, composed  of town and country men and women. This committee would find, out the sort of help the fanners '  of their locality need, and get a list of the unemployed in their town "or city, who are suitable for  farm labour. With this information, the committee  would be in a good position to get the right man for  the right place.  Councils, both rural and urban, Boards of Trade  and other organizations could advantageously -  finance such work. Every unemployed man in the  town or city who is placed on the farm becomes  immediately a producer, instead of a mere consumer  and a civic expense.  Breeding stock are today Canada's most valuable  asset;    The one outstanding feature of the world's  farming is that there will soon be agreat.shoriage_  of meat supplies.
