 w.m  m.  m  Kettle Valley Orchardist  FIFTEENTH YEAR-No   11  GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 21, 1916  $1.00 PER YEAR  -N  The first meeting of the 1916 city  council   was   held   at 3  o'clock on  ���������Monday    afternoon.'-'���������'���������OK tbe" new  , council Mayor Acres  and   Aid. McArdle,     McCallum,   Schnitter   and  Sheads were present, while  the  retiring   council   was   represented by  ex-Mayor Gaw and   Aid.   McCallum  ,   and ex-Aid. Bickerton.    The  meeting   was  more  for   the   purpose of  inaugurating   the   members  of   the  nev city government into office than  as an occasion for transacting   busi  ness.    The   next   meeting   of    the  council   will   be held next Monday  night,  when   Mayor-Acres will   announce his permanent committees.  Brief speeches were made   by   all  those present.  Ex-Mayor Gaw, in welcoming the  new council, congratulated the ratepayers on the personnel of the   new  civic government.    He paid  a  high  compliment    to   Aid.   McCallum's  ability,  and   was   particularly glad  that he had been re elected.    He believed that all  councils  served   the  ratepayers   to   the   best   of    their  ability, and it was   regrettable   that  so many of  the citizens   had fallen  into  the  habit  of  criticizing them.  Hh turned over trie  city   affairs t<*  ���������   the   new   administration   in    better  shape   than 'they   had   ever before  been   turned over to   an   incoming  council.    Morally, Grand Forks   oc  cupieds'c nl-pltce   in British Columbia.   This  could    be proved   by  statistics.    He hoped the city would  be maintained   on   its present high  plane.   He had been mayor for four  terms,   and   he  gladly  turned   the  office  over   to   his   successor.    Mr.  Gaw said he wished   to  correct  the  statement   printed   in   last,  week's  council proceedings,to ihe effect that  during bis last two  terms  of  office  he had not been absent from a regular or special,   meeting     Instead  of  .the   last   two   terms,   he  said, the  statement   applied- to   the     entire  period he   has occupied the mayor's  chair.  Mayor Acres spoke briefly. Tie  congratulated the aldermen on their  election. He felt sure the council  would do everything in its power lo  safeguard the ratepayers' interests  and personally he hoped he would  be able to leave his office with as  good a record as his predecessor.  Aid. McCallum highly appreciated the c implimentary remarks paid  him by ex-Mayor Gaw, and he fully  reciprocated them in his high opinion of the ex-mayor. The old council had done the best it could. In  the new council he would have liked  to ex-Aid. Manly as an alderman;  but in looking around   the table  he  them, as-.well as tbe mayor, on their  election. ���������  Aid. >Shead������ thought the new  council would be able to solve the  problems that might arise during the  coming year. He congatulated the  members on their election.'  Aid. McArdle said he considered  it a great honor to be a member of  the present council. He would endeavor--to serve tlie ratepayers' interests conscientiously and to promote the prosperity of the city as  much as possible.  Aid. Schnitter would endeavor to  do his duty as a representative of  the ratepayers to the best of his  ability.  ��������� Returning Officer Hutton read  the result of the poll taken on the  1.3th inst., and announced that Geo.  H. Hull -and Frank Latham had  been appointed school trustees. On  motion of Aid Sheads and McArdle,  the "report was accepted.  On motion of Aid 'McCallum and  Schnitter, the repayment of  a temporary loan of $3500 from'the Bank  ol   Comuidrce,    was     extended     to  March 31, 1916.  The   mayor   and   the   city clerk  were authorized to sign  all   cheques  and legal documents for the city.  to locate  the sponsors.    Were they  spies?  CO-OPERATIVi  The ranchers and fruit   growers of  the valley held an important meeting in the board of trade rooms yesterday afternoon.    The  object   was  to organize an  association   through  which   they, might    market   their  farm  products     The  meeting  was  called' to   order by J. T. Lawrence,  chairman,  who outlined   the  object  for which those present had met.  A most stirring address   was   delivered by WV M   DeCew along   the  lines of co-operation.   The  speaker  pointed out the necessity of such an  as-ociatiou to the growers of the val  ley and the  benefits  to  be derived,  not only to the growers, but  to  the  entire   population   of   the    valley.  After a number of prominent  growers ha,d expressed themselves  along  the same lines, it was   unanimously  decided   to   band   together into an  organization.  It'was decided that the new association be named ' "Grand Forks  Growers' Co operative Association."  The capitalization is to be $25,000,  divided into 500 shares at the par  value of -$50 per share. Thirty-one  shares were subscribed for at this  meeting.  The board of directors elected are  as fellows: W. Mark DeCew, E. F.  Laws, C. Hesse, H. W. Collins, J. T.  Lawrence, James Little and A. O.

Reprimand and punishment were  unavailing. The man was incorrigible and remained as dirty as  ever  A brilliant idea struck the colonel.  "Why not march him up and down  the whole line of the regiment and  shame him into decency?"  This was done. The untidy warrior, who hailed from the Emerald  Isle, was ordered to exhibit himself  and march up and down the entire  regiment, and the men to have- a  good look at him.  The unabashed Pat baited, saluted the colonel and said in the  hearing of the whole corps, with the  utmost sangfroid:  "Dhirtiest regiment I iver inspected, sorr."  A fatal railway accident occurred,  on the new C.P.R. steely bridge in  the west end of this city at about  4 o'clock last Sunday afternoon, in  which Mrs. Josephine E. Webster,  aged 69 years, was so badly injured  that she died in the Grand Forks  hospital a few hours later, and her  son, Arthur Webster.sustained more  or less severe injuries.  Mrs. Webster, who was  living  at  the   home   of   her   daughter, Mrs.  Clark, on the south side of the riverT  bad visited at the home of  her son,  who lives  near -the  Great Northern  station, during- the day,  and at 4 p.  m. started to return home.    Her son  accompanied her to   see   her   safely  across   the   bridge.    When   in   the  middle of the bridge   an  eastbonnd  freight suddenly rounded   the curve  at   the   northern   approach   to   the  bridge.   Mr. Webster realized  that it  would   be  impossible  to  reach the  other end  of the bridge without being   overtaken by   the train, and he  drew his mother to one  side  as  far  as   possible   and   expected    that it  would pass them safely.    They were  struck by some portion of the train,  however,   and   Mr.    Webster    was  hurled to the ice   below, a distance  of abrrntf'twenty feet.    Mrs. Webster  was thrown   under  the   wheel, and  both her feet were cut off just above  the   heels.    The   train   was stopped  and the two  injured   persons   were  placed in the caboose until   the ambulance arrived to  convey them   to  the hospital, where they were placed     ������  under the care  of   Drs. Truax   and  Kingston.   From the first it was apparent  that  nothing could be done  for Mrs. Webster, her advanced   age  and the shock of the accident working hgainst any chance of recovery  she   might   otherwise   have    had.  Without once  regaining consciousness after being run   over, she  died  at about 8 o'clock tbe same evening.  Arthur Webster, who is now in the  hospital, is   suffering   from a   fractured   wrist,   dislocated elbow   and  sprained   ankle, as   well   as   minor  bruises and a'severe  shock.

It was down  grade,  however, and the train was running  at a good speed, the  distance  being  short and the rails frosty   and  slippery, and it was  found   impossible  to do so in time  to avert   the  accident.    They also say that the   electric   danger   signal   at the crossing  was ringing at the time, but as   the  weather was bitterly cold, it is  possible that   the  victims  of   the accident were mullled up so closely that  they did not hear it.

You are dimly conscious of. all this,  but your attention is centred upon  what yon are reading. Abruptly you  feci a touch of pain and a sickening  sensation as if tho mainspring'in your  breast, had suddenly run down. The  lines of print wobble and knock into  each other.

The children1* are singing now. it is  ragtime, but you do hot protest. You  know nothing of it. You are gone:  And the people of the home do not  know that you are gone. They are  laughing and talking and singing. By  and by some of them will come tiptoeing in to speak to father; but be will  not hear.ihem.   ���������  And now that you arc gone, in what  condition.'dirt-you leave your family?  Did yon make a will? Does it represent exactly what you wish to be done  with your property? Did you have any  life insurance? Is it payable to tbe  persons to Avhom you want it to go?  Have you any money iu the banks?  Do you, know- that, though you may  have large sums on deposit, unless  you have made a-will or some other  legal provision to guard against the  contingency, your wife cannot touch  a. penny of that money until the estate  has been-"administered . and tedious  legal processes gone through with?  She- is moneyless- and is dependent  upon friends or upon the professional  lenders, even perhaps the loan sharks.  The disposition of a man to centre  all the reins - of control in himself  often leads him to have his lifo insurance made payable to his estate. We  have' already se?n how'greatly needful ready cash is to the wife-or" heirs  of a. decedent- You can further-'execute your own will by making your  lifo insurance policies payable directly  to your wife or your children. Such  policies, payable to tiie widow, for  instance, are usually collectable within a few weeks and sometimes even  within a few days. To many a distraught woman, perplexed by the entangling loose ends of an estate, which  aro inevitable when a man is in active  business, the checks of the life insur  ance companies  from heaven.  have come like gifts  It is almost axiomatic that, tiie man  who has no lifo insurance is a bad  housekeeper. Tlie poor man cannot  afford to be without it and the  wealthy man dare not. The man  who, having a family and perhaps a  business dependent upon him, does  not protect one or both with life insurance is a gambler. He is betting on  the red to win; but there are just as  many blade pockets as red ones, as  well as sonic that arc neither. Therefore red loses, oftener than it wins  every day, and there is one day when  it is sure to lose! In that day what  are your wife and children going lo  do and what is your business going to  do? Tlie advantages of carrying' life  insurance are so obvious and tiie disadvantages of not carrying it are so  much more obvious that it, seems  hardly necessary to urge, it upon anyone. Yet f am going to cite two cases  to show that it is nocessarv to urge  it.  One of these was a  on the Pacific Coast,  ness which with him  was worth :?4u<>.0ntj-  ably have been sold  It was; incorporated  all the stock except Hid  merit to the necessary direc  made, lots of iuonoy, but  much ou tlie extension of his  and he spent liberally, almost lavishly,  upon himself and his family. His business was earning him the income  from half a million, and lie lived as if  it wcro a half million of government  bonds and .'ill he had to do was to cut  ihe coupons, instead of as if it were a  growing btish that .sun ' and frost  could wii.hor.

But he  continued .spending, depending on expanding a little faster the next, year  and possibly curbing his personal expense account a trille til! the two  should run neck and neck a.^ain. ' In  fact, this man was just like millions of  other Americana today above him and  'insurance. \\o carries the risk alone  ! instead of letting a million other men  j carry it with him. /  j    And this gambler lost.    His nerves  ! broke   flown.     Rut    for    months    he  i fought   on,   directing   his   enterprises  front Jjis bedside.    'Hut the business,  too, seemed  to get  a case of nerves.  It also  became ill.    At  tbi* end of it  few months the tiller ropes began lo  slip  through  the  sick man's slackening lingers.    He    saw that the business  was    going    dowu   without. his  {active  directing genius,  and  he saw,  I too, that; ho was going down:    Death  j was gibbering at him from every-cor-  I nor of the room.    He had overspent,  i depending upon -a long life to repay.  ' This   was   legitimate,   tiiough   imprudent,  if the  man  were well.--.

The widow,,, to got  her rights out of the business, found  it  necessary   to  sue.    The-'combined  fees of the fawycrs.'wore'$15,000. After  litigation which consumed a year or  more,  the. widow., received,  over and  above  the lawyers'  fees,  about  ������Co,-  000, instead of the $400,000 she Would  ! have had: but  for tiie  fact, that her  husband was a. very bad housekesper.  Had his house really boon in. order,  there  would have been no ��������� overdraft,  and he had no such anchor to wind-  rd, and' hir. recklessness,'.I almost  say foolhardincss, robbed his estate of  a 'round-'.quarter of a million of dollars.    His wife 'with eight children, all  minors,   lost    that quarter  of  a  million-    She, of course, had to give up  the .$00,000 house, and must look 'forward to the education of her children  and  maintaining herself through life  out  of  this  pitiful   residue" of. what  might have been a noble estate.    To  those   who   have much   less,   $65,000  may  seem  a  very  generous  fortune,  but  to- the  widow and- children who  might have had $-100,000, and who had  been living at a $25,0.00 a year clip, it  seemed like hardship, and it is difficult to see  how they can  escape reproaching at times the memory of the  husband and father for his  carelessness.  But here is another case. Mr. ft.  had a comfortable salary of $.10,000  a year. He bad a wife and four children .whom, he; loved devotedly.  Everything ho made was not too much  to lavish upon them, jf any man had  called Mr. Jt. a recklessly improvident .father ' he would have thought  his accuser insane. Hut Mr. It.  dropped off in the bathtub one morning. He had no insurance,' aud left  but a few hundred dollars in cash.  His heart-broken widow gave him a  funeral in keeping with the condition  in which he had lived. That took all  the cash. By selling household goods  at auction she got money enough to  pay railroad fare to a, western state.  There this delicate woman took up a  quarter section of government land,  choosing the location uea.rest to the  schoolhouse- She is so far away that  no one who knew ber before ber husband's death is likely to see her, as,  with coarse shoes upon her feet and  coarse dresses upon her back, her  hands reddened and her face grown  gray and old, she busies herself about  tlie rough house and barnyard work  upon her claim. Bar children are  going to school. Between whiles they  help their mother. This.kind and devoted husband was after all just another gambler, but tlie comfort of his  wife and children was the stake he  lost.  what,   remains  long  hours  of  answer is: No  hundreds  scrubbing  and   oars  one-room  liiere are  of  a   mother's  1  exhausting  toil  insurance:    There are.  of   thousands     of    widows  doors,  straining their eyes  over machines,  or~ turning  homes     into   sweatshops;  other hundreds of thousands  if?T^ j School Garden Exhibitions I Organization of  '    , t.

But- a word must be said to wives.  Wives are often to blame that their  husbands' houses are in disorder so  far as life insurance is concerned.  The price of a hat for the wife of a  man in moderate circumstances may  equal -the. quarttrly premium "on,-three,  or four thousand dollars' worth of  life "insurance. .���������'.'���������-'.'. ���������-.  Considerations of delicacy often  hold back a wife from bringing up  the subject of life insurance, to '-'-.her;  husband. She <. does not like to think  that he may die; andshc does not like  him to th ink that she';, is planning to  derive a money beueflt from his  In "sober fact, such squeamish-  nonsensical. Life insurance is  lienefit but n compensation^  'inadequate no matter how  assuming   that    a  husband   is  death.  ! ness..is  i not  a  a ways  large,  worth anything at all.

Oh  the contrary she should demand it  She should 'insist that it be regarded  not as'an extravagance, nor as an investment, but as a necessity.

It may be neAvs to some of our  readers lidAvevorto learn that this autumn there have been held or are yet  to be, held nearly a hundred other  fairs, of which such competitions are  the special feature. In many cases  these'.school garden exhibitions are  undertaken by teachers' associations,  but in many other cases private individuals and various organizations  interested in linking up the school  with the industrial interests, of the  community-have;given financial assistance and helped in many other ways.  Agricultural societies, grain growers"  associations, home makers' clubs,  municipal councils and boards of trustees ha\re done much good /work in this  connection. Fifteen or twenty agricultural, secretaries have been particularly active and successful in arranging exhibitions for the schools in.the  particular .-'municipalities, in /which  they are engaged.

Are Due to Poor Blood and  Only Curable Through  the, Blood  ,  There is  an excellent  reason  why-  Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills have cured  the  most severe  cases  of neuralgia,  sciatica and other   complaints in the  group    known    as  disorders of    the  nerves.   This group also included nervousness and  excitability.    Each    of  these  complaints  exists  because  the  nerves are not getting a proper nourishment from tlie blood.    The reason  why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure nervous disorders is because they make  the  rich,  red  blood  upon; which  the  nerves depend for proper tone.   It is  thus   seen   that  Dr.   Williams'   Pink  Pills cure nervous disorders because  they go to the root of the trouble in  the blood, and Avhile they are doing  this  they strengthen and fortify the  whole system against disease. "Among  the many who'have found relief from  paia  through  th:s  great medicine .is  Miss Ethel Smith, residing near tfur-  i'ord, Ont.,-.who says: "Some years ago  i was seized with a great pain, in my  right leg, between the hip and knee.  ������������������t became so ba.l that I go",; no rest,  day or night, and often cried Avith the  pain.   The doctor said the trouble Avas  rheumatism of the sciatic nerve. Liniments Avere used until they actually  took the skin off, aud still the pain  grew Averse and Avorso   Then all the  other nerves  in the limb seemed to  be affected, and it kept jerking and  tAvitching until  it  would  have   to be  held to keep it still-   Then tho doctor  put the limb in a papier macho case,  but it was not long until the trouble  began in my other limb and it had to  bs^ treated "in  the  same  way.    I lay  in that condition for three years with  nrv whole nervous system    so badly  shattered    that    it    would make me  scream if any oue walked across the  floor.    Then  my throat became  partially  paralzed  and  I could  scarcely  speak.    During this time I had been  attended  by  three   different  doctors,  who   did all in their power, but each  said I would never    be able to Avalk  again.    Then   my  father  decided   to  get me Dr. 'Williams' Pink Pills.   De-  fore I had used them long I felt them  helping me.    This  so  encouraged us  that the use of the pills Avas continued and in a few months I was able to  walk half a mile each day to get the  mall-   I used in all eighteen or twenty boxes ot the Pills and they did what  three years of doctoring had not been  able    to do.    .1 am as Avell as ever I  Avas in my life, and have had no return of the trouble.

A few months since a Avcalthy man  died. There was much speculation as  to tho value of the property, and the  town gossip set about to find out the  cts. He hunted up the lawyer, and,  after a few preliminary remarks about  the deceased, ho said, rather bluntly:  "I suppose you made Brown's Avill?"  "Ves."  "Then you probably know how much  he l.'d't.    Would you mind telling me?"  "Not at all," the lawyer answered,  as he resumed his writing, "lie left  everything ho had."  Forest Fires on H. B. Railway  Large Areas Burned '.Over: With' Great  Loss  of  Timber  and   Supplies  Largo areas of forest have been destroyed this year by tires which-'havo  occurred along the Hudson Bay ltn.il-  Avay, under construction for the Dominion government .between Le Pa's  and Port Nelson, Manitoba. It is estimated that the burned area Avill total not less than 500,000 acres, caus-  iu a destruction of forest A'alues  amounting to $250,000, in addition to  a heavy loss of game and fur-bearing  animals.' In some cases, considerable  quantities of supplies belonging to  railway contractors, Avere also destroyed. '. :-  The country which the raihvay traverses contains considerable jack pine,  spruce, black spruce and birch, avei-  aging from 4 to 30 inches at the butt,  along the rivers, creeks and lakes and  also on tho islands. All the high laud  has a fairly good average stand of timber, chiefly a reproduction from previous fires,"'which; probably occurred  about forty years ago- In the muskegs, the timber is, of course, stunted, on account, of Tack of drainage.  An attempt to prevent fires in this  section has been made by the Dominion forestry branch, through the appointment of Jirerangcrs, but their efforts have been only partially effective owing to tho defective condition .  of .the lire-protective appliances on  the railway engines, as Avell as to the  carelessness or negligence of sub-contractors and of unemployed laborers  tramping along the railway line.  The Hudson Bay Railway is hot subject to the jurisdiction of the railway  commission, but is' under the direct  control of tiie 'department of railways  and canals.

The members of the  retiring city council  have ample  justification for  taking  pride  in   the  splendid  record they  made in administering the affairs  of the city  during the  past year.    It was a year of  world-wide depression   commercially and industrially, and  yet    the    annual   statement  shows that the city  not only  held its own, but that it made  substantial gains in its financial status.    This is a  record  that has not been equalled in  many towns or cities  during  the   year,   and  this   circumstance speaks  all the  louder  in commendation  of the administrative    ability    of the  mayor and  aldermen  of the  1015  city   government.    Mr.  Gaw, the retiring mayor, has  occupied that position for four  terms.   This  is an honor accorded to but few men, in any  city, and he is  the only man  in Grand Forks who has held  the  office  for  that length of  time.    It should be a source  of great gratification to him  to  know  that  his last term  ended so successfully.  There is something infinitely   pa  thetic   about  the   departure of Sir  Richard   McBricle for London.    A  handful oi people went to the   train  in Vancouver to wish   him   a   safe  journey and good   luck at the other  end of it. There was no enthusiasm;  not even courteous applause  for the  man who for many years    has   held  the highest position offered   by   the  electorate of British Columbia.   The  Conservative party ha-t found a new  master and cringes Jbeseechingl}'   at  his feet.    The old   friend and boon  companion has.gone where   he  can  be of no further  use   to "the gang."  "Let  him go," they say,   "we  are  done with him; he has nothing more  to give."    And   so   Richard   went,  silently    and    unapplauded,   from  amongst those who a few weeks   before swore almost violent   fealty   to  their peerless leader.   The fickleness  of kings is as nothing Compared with  that of the   sycophant.���������Vancouver  Sun.

The curtain bad fallen, and  after a long tumult of applause the  audience were gradually relapsing  into silence.  Suddenly smoke was seen issuing  from behind the curtain, and a  smell of burning began to pervade  the atmosphere. Instantly a shout  of "Fire!" arose, and a stampede  was made for the doors.  Then from the stalls rose the hero  of the hour���������a man with a calm,  determined face.  "Keep your seats!" he shouted.  His words and manner  reassured  the  terror-stricken   people  in   the  theatre.    Shamefacedly   they  sank  one by one into their seats.   Slowly,  as if about to speak, the man strode  to where there was now an open exit.  Then   without   a   moment's hesita  tion. he rushed for the door.

John Wanamaker says in Judicious  Advertising: "Advertising doesn't  jerk; it pulls. It begins very gently  at first, but the pull is steady. It increases day by day and year by year,  until it exerts an irresistible   power."  Hoping against hope is too  much like betting against another man's g'ame.  A man seldom gets any  pleasure out. of a thing that  does not separate him from  some of his money.  Any woman can hold a  man's interest by getting a  first mortgage on his property.  Genius is only  the power  of making continuous   effort.  The line between failure and  success   is   so  fine  that   we  .scarcely know when we  pass  it, so fine that we are often on  the line and  do not know it.  Eowmany a man has thrown  up his hands at a  time  when  a   little   more  effort, a little  more  patience,   would   have  achieved success!  As the tide  goes   clear out, so   it  comes  clear in.    In   business, sometimes,   prospects   may   seem  darkest   when really they are  on the  turn.    A  little   more  persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed ��������� hopeless failure may iurn to  glorious success.   There is no failure except   in no longer trying. There is no defeat except  All Home Comforts  A stranded but still haughty  "leading lady" was obliged to put  up at a dilapidated country hotel.  She glanced frowningly about the  office, reluctantly signed the regis  ter, and took the brass key from the  proprietress. "'Is there water in my  room?" she demanded. "Why,there  was," replied the proprietress, "but  I had the roof fixed."  The Sun, at SI a- year, is superior  to any $2 a ytjar paper printed in the  Boundary.

What is Germanism?
Germanism is a great, criminal conspiracy, a. sort of fjluck Hand or Ca-
ra'orra, all o�� whose members work,
secretly, relentlessly, unscrupulously
for a common end���the enslaving of
tlie world (writes Air. Robert Vivian
in the New Witness). Every German
���from the��� highest to the lowest���is a
born spy, regarding espionage as one
of the prime duties of citizenship.

The Value of Birds in  Forests'
Birds  attain  their  greatest .usefulness in the forests, because tho conditions there closely approach the primeval.
.Forest trees have their natural insect foes, to which they give food
ami shelter, ami these insects in turn
have their natural enemies, among
the birds, to which the tree also gives
food and shelter. .Hence it follows
that the existence of each one"of these
forms of lifo is dependent upon tho
existence of the others. l!ut for the
trees the insects would perish, and but
for the birds the trees would perish;

��mm^��masagiBsgg&mm I  \ ���������  THE    SUN",, GRAND    FORKS,   E.G.  HAS RESOLVED INTO A QUESTION OF HOLDING ON  The Distinctive Military Quality ot the British is Their Ability to  Hold on, and in the Face of Repeated Reverses, to Live  Up to Their Ancient Reputation of Winning Out  A neutral who professes some  (knowledge of military history asserted the.other day that Berlin was  never able to win more than one great  light in any of her wars, l.ut that it  always 'happened to be the las.t one.  Beneath'the exaggeration of this opinion may be discerned the .distinctive  military quality of the British, namely, th'eir ability to hold on, and in the  face of .-'repealed reverses to come  cheerfully and confidently in the final  grapple, where they have been successful ever since there,was a British  nation. In the present war it has  been made jjlaiu that the British race  has lost none of its nobler qualities,  and there is doubt in no quarter as to  the final issue of the war. This war  has come to be a question of holding  on, and /bitter-. and desperate though  the fight is, our people are entitled to  a knowledge of the fact that in Germany the pressure of the war is becoming daily moi'e pronounced. A correspondent of the New York Herald at  Zurich, who has been travelling in  Germany,, finds that a great change  lias come over the people in the past  six months;  : '  He bears talk of quitting; the uppermost word - is : not victory, .but  continue to hope for victory. Nevertheless, it is peace they desire above  till t'.ings. Their fighting spirit is not  rising, even', though the tide, of their  armies' victories shows little sign of  turning. On the surface the people  are with the government "and -no open  criticism of the Kaiser appears; but  underneath he finds a growing discontent with the continuance of the war,  which the Germans had expected to  be over before now. 'Every month  (hat' passes takes its heavy toll of  Gorman lives and imposes fresh hardships, upon the masses of the people.  The newspapers are now venturing to  publish-letters'from the front which  discourage the notion that the German soldiers are supermen. Germans  in the; trenches are allowed to inform  the people at home that bravery and  military resourcefulness are not exclusive German characteristics, and  even, to rebuke those who continue to  madly cheer for the war.   ���������  Ho says that the recent peace demonstration ordered by the Cardinal  Archbishop of Cologne .,-would have  been impossible six months ago, and  though the '"."actual."' procession" was  frustrated at tho last moment by the  authorities, they feared to interrupt  the preparations" which had-preceded  it. knowing very well that the Archbishop represents the feeling in the  Rhine provinces and jn other parts of  Western and Southern German}-,  where the majority of the people are  Koman Catholics. For months past  the archbishop has.- been advocating  peace, and when he announced that  liprar September 2G there would-be a  s  procession in Cologne of those in favor  of ending the war at once, thousands of Jiomait Catholic clubs and  societies prepared to fake part in it.  The authorities hesitated to .interfere  until'it was announced that the ^Socialists "were to participate, when  they forbade 1t on the ground that it  would load to disorders. So the demonstration was'cancelled but nobody  has- ventured to rebuke the archbishop,   who continues  his  demands.  It is the rise in the cost fo living,  and especially in the price of food,  that increases more than anything  else the. growth of war weariness. A  remarkably outspoken comment or.  (he food question which appeared in  the Socialist Vorwarts was as follows:  "One of the most dangerous deceptions perpetrated during the war is.  the pretence that 'Germany-: although  cut off from all" her: oversea supplies,  can feed her own; population. ' The  fact is that the population of Germany cannot be properly fed by products of her: own country. The war  has proven beyond all doubt that it is  impossible to produce enough articles  of nourishment or to raise a sufficient  number of cattle to feed the- Germau-  people without foreign assistance. ItN  is true that we shall bs able to hold  out for some limited time, but only  at the cost of the health and strength  of -the-nation; now being undermined  by systematic deprivation and underfeeding."  From another source  it is  learned  that 'the   great  textile   industries   of  Germany are stagnant.    This is caused by,a lack of raw materials,   and  means that not only are hundreds of  thousand   of   people   out   of  employment, many ot whom, of course, are  serving as soldiers, but that there is  increasing difficulty in supplying the  forces    with  clothing.    The    government *is being called upon to provide  for the idle men who are: not fitted  for military duties    or public works,  to   furnish   temporary  , financial   assistance to those without means and  to keep the insurance policies of all  of them in force until the end of the  war.    Tho    German government .may  be .able to solve this' problem, as it  has solved    others in the  course of  the past fifteen months, but it is in!  the position of a tiring horse obliged '���������  to face one fence after another, each |  higher -than    the one before.    Pres-j  sure  from  within  and   from  without',  increases, and wliilp such enterprises  as  Germany    is  now conducting    in  Serbia  may    temporarily    cheer  the j  people, it does-  not lessen unemploy- j  ment, reduce the cost of'existence to!  i the masses of   German    people,   nor j  does it lessen the terrifying lists of I  dead  and   wounded    wheh  stare  the i  readers   of newspapers  in  the    face '  each morning.  About   One   Hundred   Million   Dollars  Spent Annually on Liquor in the  Dominion  As prohibition of tho liquor traffic  during the war is being earnestly discussed let us briefly consider whether such action is necessary and whether the people would favor it.  About one hundred million dollars  are spent in drink every year in tbe  Dominion. Even ii.it did "no harm it  would be the part of wisdom to save  that large sum especially during the  war. But when we consider that it  does do much harm and entails co  much further expense it seems needless to discus's it.  ��������� In England and the United States  it ,5:J conceded that ten per cent, of all  deaths- are caused directly or indirectly by drink. If we adopt one-half of  that percentage lor Canada it gives  us about five thousand deaths caused  by drink in Canada every year. Where  there are so many deaths there must  be a much larger number who are  more or less injured by it. We shall  certainly be within the mark if we  say that ten thousand persons are  killed and injured every year by drink.  It has boon, shown in severaLplaces  that it costs about live times as much  as the revenue received from the traffic to care for the paupers, orphans  and criminals it causes.  It has ateo been shown that if the  money spent in drink were spent in  useful articles, it would give employment to eight times as many persons  as arc engaged iu the manufacture of  liquors.  Reports from many places show  that the burden of taxation is greater  in wet than in"dry towns, l In some  places the tax rate is double. The  saving in police expenses alone, is  more . than the license fees. These  statements are not mere theory; they  have actually occurred in many places  and the prosperity following prohibition contirms .them.   '���������:���������.'., -;  So much for the needed prohibition  even in peace limes, but do the people want prohibition? In Ontario they  have voted on three different occasions by large majorities in favor of  prohibition and there is no evidence  that, they have changed their lines.  Again nearly three-fourths of tbo  municipalities of Ontario have adopted local prohibition of their own accord and aro so well satisfied with it  that not one has repealed it in the  past five years, notwithstanding all  the 'efforts"of the powerful liquor traffic.  A strong indication of the trend of  public opinion is found in the fact  that a number of our best papers and  magazines refuse to carry -liquor advertisements into the homes of ll.e.ir  subscribers. -   -.  It will be asked when all these are  in favor of prohibition who are they  that c.;-h agai.':."t it and T answer the  liquor interest and" the barroom "brigade. The liquor interest is composed  not only of the manufacturers and  sellers ol' liquor, hut all those who  make protit out of the business, either  directly or indirectly.

'A few years ago when Seager  Wheeler of Rosthern, Saslc, Avon the  world's prize for wheat at the International Dry Farming Congress and  W. J.

The west has been winning so many  agricultural prizes and we have got so  used to it that an achievement such as  that of Maunsell Brothers passes almost unnoticed.  The most satisfactory aspect in connection with the splendid showing  made by Western Canadian agriculturists is not that they win prizes and  break records once and then relax  their efforts, but they keep it up and  continue to lead the continent each  successive year.

Was Friend of Kaiser  General  Hunter, Second  in Command  of the British Troops at Gallipoli,  > Saved Life of Kaiser .  General Sir Archibald Hunter, second in command of the British troops  at Gallipoli, was a favorite of tho German Kmperor before the war, having  once saved the Kaiser when a horse  attached to a carriage in which he-  was driving in Scotland became unmanageable. The Emperor paid the  Scotch, soldier particular attention  and gave him a standing invitation to  visit Berlin.  The Kaiser must have' heard with  chagrin that tbe recent successes' in  the Anafarta region were dua largely  to Hunter's direction.  ��������� Hunter lirst made his name in  Egypt. In Wolseley's Nile expedition,  Hunter captured one of tho most  truculent Dervish chiefs with his own  hands, and carried him off in a  gunboat iu the very teeth of the  tribesmen.  Hunter bad fourteen wears oi- the  desert and the Nile Valley, and his  slavery in all the lighting was a  byword with the black troops whose  adored leader he was. When th? ill-  fated gunboat El Tcb turned tunic  in the fifth cataract, Hunter ha.i a  narrow escape, being struck in ihe  Hide by the bridge rait as he leaped  overboard.  Lord Kitchener lias much to thank  General Hunter for. But for tlie hitter's prompt warning on one occasion  Kitchener might never have lived to  sre Ihe consummation of his work.

V- l.'''-rdier. who went to England come  time ago in order-to interest capital-  sist in the district. The expedition  left Edmonton three weeks ago, and  as every effort was made to keep its  object a secret, little was known of  it until it was well on its way. The  explorers will -remain in tho country  from well over two years, and took  with them ?r������0,OOU worth of machinery  aud $10,(100 worth of provisions. The  totai cost will be about $ J 00,000."  The German Way  i'  A lantern should always be hung ip,  specially in the barn or stable. It  should never be set on tho floor,  where it may be easily tipped over.  A Sample of the Brutal Severity of the  Huns  Th;> bridal severity of the Gorman  military authorities is again exemplified in an apparently well authenticated story that has eoine here I'lom the  United States. A young German had  come over to Xew York and established li!iUF..'.'lf in business some years  ago. When the war broke out lie  wrote iiis fiancee iu Germany that he  should return and join the army, but  1k> would suffer great loss in a business way. She replied advising him  not to go, as they both had brothers  fighting at the front. As the war became more desperate he wrote again  expressing a still stronger inclination  to return.  In reply came another leLter from  the young lady again advising him not  to zo, and stating that the members  ,jf lioih their families who were iu  the army, bad been killed.  At tlie bottom of tiie Idler was a  no to from the military authorities  statiing that the writer of the letter  had been executed that morning for  treason in counselling a German not  to return to light for his country.  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has written for the U.S. press a vigorous  article, in which he combats the view  that the war to date has been unfortunate for Great Britain, lie scores  the British for their national weakness of self depreciation; .and proceeds to say.in part:  "Yet in our heart of hearts we ure  as certain of victory as that tomorrow's sun will come, and a dispassionate . snrvcy will satisfy any student of history that no great war in  which our country has ever been engaged has been marked in the same  space of time by such triumphant  successes: as those of tho last fourteen months.      , ���������'. .  "Our troubles have been those of  our allies; our victories have largely  been our own. Germany can make  a good showing, up to date against  the coalition. Against Great Britain  she has been beaten at every turn.  "Consider what wc have done in  this short space of-time and compare  it with the opening of any, of our  greater ..wars. ���������������������������'������������������Jn our war against the  French Republic, it was nearly two  years after its inception t hat Howe's  victory gave us a gleam of success-  In the great war against Napoleon, it  was again-'two years before Trafalgar ended the fear of imminent invasion and twelve years of very varying  fortunes before he won through.  "Now, look at the work of fourteen  months. We have annexed the whole  great German colonial empire, with  the exception of East Africa aud a  district in Kameruns. Wc have swept  the German flag,, both imperial and  mercantile, off the face of the ocean;  we hae completely sterilized her  fleet; we have repelled her serious  submarine attack;, played our game  so skilfully that the flux, of time shows  us stronger, not weaker,-in comparison. .  "We hae conquered Mesopotamia  from the Turks: we'have completely  repelled their attempted invasion of  Egypt; we have helped to sav; Paris;  we"have, with French and Belgian assistance, but mainly by our exertions,  stopped the advr.nce on Calais, inllkt-  ing a loss of several-hundreds of thousands upon the Germans; we have., by  our intervention at Antwerp, helped  to extricate the Belgian army.  "Finally, and greatest of all. we  have raise J an enormous volun leer  army, which is large-enough' to.-turn  the scale ' Jtwee:. the European forces  and we have converted ourselves, with  wonderful adaptability, into the great  factory and munitions store of the allies.  "That is our story, and if any cannot see that it is a Avonderful one. he  is not merely a pessimist, but blind.  "What- have we to put on the other  side of the account? I am .dealing  for tho moment with large results  and not with details. Where have  we failed?  "Jn tbe whole world our most severe  critic could only point to one place.  the Dardanelles; but have we failed in  the Dardanelles?  "I believe that if we should never  force ihe straits the enterprise lias  none the less been worth the undertaking. We have lost 100,000- How  many have the Turks lest? Certainly  not less.  "We have held up a groat body oi  their best troops, .who would otherwise have been operating against us  on the Egyptian and Mesopotamia;]  fronts or in the Caucasus against the  Russians. General Ian Hamilton has  taken the pressure off (ler.eral Maxwell en -the one side and General  Nixon on the other.  "But the greatest of ai! tlin results  from the Dardanelles expedition is  that if. has united us with Russia as  nothing less could have done. She  cannot now say, as she might have  said, that we thought only of our  own empire. We have spent our blood  and our ships in trying to force (he  gates which close her in. When the  episotU; remains a historical reminiscence, like the passage of Admiral  Duckworth in .1007, this great result  will still remain.  "Again, one sequel which may  prove to be of vital importance may  spring from the Dardanelles. It is  our operation there and the consequent danger In their ally which has  drawn the central powers on to their  southern advance-  '"fhe immediate result of ibis has  been to bring into the war the Serbians, wiio for nearly a year had  been practically neutral, and so to be  supplied by the Germans w,'tli uje;i  ;>nd munitions. It is lapping u fresh  vein in a body which i; already slowly bleeding to death.  "What have they to gain liiere?  Putting aside all megalomaiiaic visions of an advance upon India, what  is their practical goal? Should tiiuy  overwhelm Serbia it will go to our  hearts, but will make no difference in  the war, since Serbia had. as J al-  readv remarked, bc.-ii obliged    to res'  corps, which aro  had ever thought  two   and   ;i   half  upon her oars for many mouths.  "What next could they advance  upon? Constantinople, with a strong  allied force entrenched upon their  Hank at Saloniki? Would tne Turks  really ��������� welcome' an. army of Jhilgars  and other hereditary enemies marching into their capital at the expense  of her hereditary  friends?  "And if we assume everything and  suppose them at Constantinople  what then? How will they cross the  Egyptian desert aud meet the quarter of a million whom wo could line  up on the Suez canal? What' will  it profit them 'to hi strong in Asia  Minor by the time that attrition has  worn them, down east and west and  the ever thickening allied lines are  pushing inward for Berlin?  "The more steadily one goes at these  fantastic fears the more, "they spread  into mere''phantoms of the imagination. The gain's of tho German expedition are shadowy and distant, the  losses are immediate and obvious, and  it, is tho Dardanelles pressure which  has drawn them forth.  "Not only have we noth'.ig (o ro-  prot.ch ourselves with and a great deal  upon which to congratulai.3 "ourselves  in actual war, but- we have, as it  seems to me, made remarkably few  mistakes.  "Beforehand, thanks to the firmness of Mr. McKenna < first lord of the  admiralty, 1.00S-121Ij in the matter of  eight great ships and the driving  power ol' Mr. Churchill (first lord from  1011 to 1915) iu the year immediately  before the war, our navy was ready as  it had never been before for a-supreme struggle-  "Of.-the four army  the most that we  of sending abroad,  were iu time for the first clash aud  the others followed. We played our  part as wo said we would play it, and  we won our game, so far as we can  count gains and losses between Germany and ourselves.  "If Mr. McKenna .and Mr. Churchill  put us in a.strong position upon the  water. Lord Haldane (ex-war secre-  .taryj ��������� forged the weapon which was  to do such great service upon the land  ���������the British military machine as we  and the Germans know it. The splendid territorial army, the officers' training corps which has been of such vital  service, the conversion of the expeditionary force into a practical reality  ���������all spring from his clear and. far-  seeing mind.  "When one remembers his long defence of the territorials, the gibes to  which he and they were subjected; the  ridicule with which 'tis assertion was  met that, they would have time after  the outbreak of war to make good  troops before taking the field, and  wnen one sees how entirely his forecast has been borne out, one does not  know which is the more surprising,  his foresight or the ingratitude and  perverseness of so many of his fel--  low countrymen.  "Future generations will, I think,  look upon Lord Haldane as one of  the saviors of the country. ,  "After the outbreak of the. war we  have also been extraordinarily fortunate in our leaders- If one searched  backward through the glorious files of  British history one could not pick out  it man who was so fitted by nature and  training ������or the supervision of such a  war as Lord Kitchener.  "His cold, mathematical brain, his  powc.r-of thinking in terms of the year  after next, his enduring, inflexible will  and power; his freedom from politics  ���������all of these qualities make him an  ideal leader in such a war.  "And what collaborator in Mr.  who supplies exactly  lacks���������the touch with  tlie power of the burning word, acquaintance with practical  : conditions of British lifo.  j With such men at home, and with  : our leaders on sea and land, from  |; Admiral .Jollicoe and Field Marshal  ; French downward, .we can surely face  j the future with a light heart.  | "Our trouble.; never have really  J been on: own, but have arisen from  tiiie fact that'the secret preparations  | of the central powers have made them  j for a limited time more powerful on  I land than their neighbors.
