GRANDFORKS  Halphrey-Brothera, of the Curlew  Creamery company, have made   arrangements   to start a creemery in  this city,, and  they  expect to be  ready to commence business by the  first   of April next."   They also intend to  operate an ice cream plant  in   connection   with the creamery.  These gentleman possess a thorough  knowledge  of   this   industry,    and  they   have-a  splendid   market for  all,their products     There  is  therefore no question as to tne success of  enterprise.    They   announce     that  they will be in the market for all the  milk and,cream that the ranchers of  the valley can supply them.    This  ehould prove a-great impetus to the  cattle   raising industry  of the district,   and   will   undoubtedly, add  vastly   to   the - prosperity   of   our  farming community.  " Eagles Install Officers  At the meeting last Monday night  the local lodge of the Fraternal  Order of Eagles installed the follow  motion of Aid. Manly and Henniger, ".  the auditor's statement was  accept-   -ng   ������ftcer8   f������r  the eD8uiug tertn:  ed, and on motion of Aid. Manly  and McCallum, it was ordered  printed.  The   chairman   of  the board  of  works reported that the   contractors  .   had started work on   the  Winnipeg  avenue fill.    The board had decided  to use a concrete pipe for a   culvert  under the fill. 'This would cost $1.50  ��������� per foot.and the chairman asked for  authority to let the contract' to  the  Grand   Forks   Concrete   company,  which   was   granted.    He also reported   that   the   city    team   was  steadily employed in hauling gravel.  J.   A.   McCallum-stated   to   the  council that he had received   a  letter   from   the C.PM.   land department, in which tbe company offered  to sell the parcel of land required by  the city for   the   Winnipeg avenne  fill at $175 on the usual terms. ; He  was requested to further correspond  with tbe company, and to procure a  deed.of the property.  The Curlew firm which intends  to establish a creamery in this city  on the first of April next made application for a permit to erect a'n  ice house in the rear of the old  steam laundry building. Referred  to the board of works.  The usual numfier of bills, accumulated during the past month,  were ordered paid.  On motion of Aid. Manly and  Henniger, the mayor and city clerk  were authorized to sign- the contract  with the contractors of the Winnipeg avenue fill.        >  The board of works was  instructed to use its influence with the contractors of the Winnipeg avenue fill  to have them employ men who may j  be in distressed circumstances. j  Past worthy president,  Jas^Reeder;  worthy   president,   P.

Hunt  at   tbe  meeting of the Grand Forks Farm-  ' ersMnstitute, held at Grand Forks  - Janu.ry 9, 1915.]  'We have several orchard practices  which  are   very essential -in order  that  we   maybe  able to grow the  best and commercial fruit.   Pruning  is one of the oldest of   these orchard  practices, and a very  essential  one;  but without soil fertility,  spraying,  and cultivation, pruning will .be  of  little value.    Our object in   pruning  may be stated in the following ways:  To make the plants vigorous; to give  them     some     desired     shape;   to  strengthen   the   framework  of  the  trees; to make them fruitful;   to  allow sunlight and air and to regulate  the heat and sunlightso as   to   prevent    sunburn;    to   aid   in    such  orchard work as spraying, thinning  and harvesting,   and  unfortunately  in   some   cases, to get a  supply of  vvatersprouts     and     firewood.    In  studying   pruning   we  must make  ourselves acquainted with' the  general principles, and we should make  a special study of the buds. In tak-  inn up some of the  general   principles,   we   find that, in many cases  heavy   top   pruning   will   produce  heavy   wood ��������� .growth, and   have   a  tendency to rejuvenate the tree.   On  the other hand, too   he ivy prnning  may   devilop   a   strong   growth "of  waterdprouts, which   is   an    indica  tion of lack of balance between   lop  is besl to use' the semi-pyramid  form or shape of tree. We find that  this type of tree will carry a crop of  fruit much "asier anil J more uniform size and color, than the vase or  pyramid form of tree. The vase or  open top tree is a vpry good form to  use for peach trees. ��������� The peach  tree, bears its.fruit .on, one-year-old-  wood. Thus, in ouder to keep good  strong bearing, wood, low down on  our trees, we must prune our trees  hard and to an open top.  The success of our ��������� orchards   will  depend a great deal upon  the  early  training of our trees    We should en-  deaxor, when possible, to secure one  year old branch trees.   We will find  that the lateral   branches on these  trees are growing at right angles   to  the trunk".    Head the tree to   about  24 to 30" inches  from   the "ground,  and select three or  four  of the best  side branches; cut them.back   to   a  bud on the top side and about eight  or ten inches from the ground.   The  one year old. straight   or  whip tree  when planted should be cut back to  a bud about thirty inches from the  surface   of   the   ground.    If   good  growth takes place, we   will get five  or   six   side   branches out from the  trunk the first year.    We will   find  that   the   lower   branches grow at  much wider angles to the trunk than  those   nearer the top; so remove one  or two of the limbs near the top, so  as to eliminate the   weak  crotches;  start your first side limb  about   fifteen, .inches .from the -ground, .and  select three or  four   of   these"  side  branches wellspaced on   the  trunk,  and growing as near as   possible   at  right angles to the trunk.    This will  form .the   framework of  your tree.

Some have a very close  and upright habit of growth,. while  others are spreading growers. Some  are strong and others are weak  growers. These factors must all be  considered in pruning the different  varieties.  We find that fruit bearing be  comes more or less of a habit with  trees, but we are able to change this  habit to some extent by pruning.  Summer pruning, if done at the  right time and moderately, will  have a tendency to produce fruit  buds, while on the other hand, win  ter pruning has a tendency to produce wood growth.  Summer pruning'is usually  prac-  woman's auxiliary showed a   mem-|iiced ������Q V������Ung tree8 which are Pr0"  l���������i_.-_    , ..      ���������  . .

The leader should nof be allowed to  become more   than   a    foot longer  than the side   branches,   and   from  year to year check by  cutting  back  to a weak side limb.  ' The pruning of   your  trees, after  the first year, and   the   amount   of  growth to cut back,   will   be   determined   by the   pruners.    No fixed  rule can be   followed, as   the  trees  vary a great deal in   their habit   of  growth.  With young trees up to .about the  sixth or seventh year, aim to prune  to strengthen the framework of the  tree, and to encourage fruit spur  formation.  We   alwavs   find   in our trees a  number   of email   lateral   branches  bership of the seuior woman's aux  iliary   of- 60; junior   branch,  40;  baby's branch,   32, making a   total  of 132.

In most cases the milk of human  kindness yields more - buttermilk  than butter.  to about the sixth year. The time  to summer prune will depend a  great deal upon tbe different varieties and the length of the growing  season, as we find some varieties  grow much later than others, and  also our trees will grow much later  one year thad in another.  We should aim to summer  prune  just before growth stops.   By pinching back or cutting back part of the  terminal. Pruning at this time tends  to produce fruit buds.   If you summer   prune   too  early, you will get  second growth, which is tender and  will   freeze   back.   If you snmmer  prune   too   late    after   growth   is  stopped, you have lost your aim,and  summer pruning then become'acase  of early winter pruning.  In   pruning- young trees, such as  The city clerk was instructed   to'    One kind of chronic   bore  is the  write   Registrar   Dunbar, of 'Kam-' loafer who acts as if your time  was  apples," pearsfpl'ums "and  cherriss  loops, and obtain his terras for a list  all his own. '  which are a foot or less in length.  By allowing these small branches to  grow from the terminal bud and not  pruning them back, a large portion  of the side buds will develop into  fruit spurs. By this practice we can  force our trees into bearing much  earlier. Sometimes we can let our  young trees go for one year without  pruning back any of the terminal  growth, and encourage fruit spur  formation all along the main  branches. These main-branches can  then be strengthened by pruning  them back the next year.  After the trees commence to bear,  prune to keep the trees well open  to allow the air and sunlight into  them, to fitrengthen the tree and to  thin the fruit. Aim as nearly as  possible to let the fruit regulate the  growth of the tree.

Germane    Escaped    From
French   in  the  swamps
Another instance oi" almost incredible   preparations  "iado  by- the  Germans through the agency of spies, for
the   present   war  is  illustrated  hy  a
-   story  which  linn  heen  brought back
t. Paris by i\l. Leon Uourgois, the senator of Marne, from a visit which he
paid to his department.
It will be rcmemnered that it was
expected that the Gonnam would
stiller great loss by being .Iriven into
Uio uVcit'fUicn of Saint Gond,-which are
particularly impassable to people nu-
tauiiliav with the paths. When the
Gnrmnn re'reat began iho French
earned'out a turning movement which
h'.cl the desired effect of compelling
Uio Germans, with their artillery, to
retreat into the marshes.' The enemy
was followed by shell fire, and Ihcn
tho French infantry advanced, expect-
ir.g to find most of the enemy engulfed
In the swamps.
TLey were rewarded by securing a
certain numb r of guns and prisoners,
but not nearly'so many us had been
expected. It -/as clear that largo
numbers of th' Germans had bejn
able to got across the swamps in safety. Plow they had done so was at
iirsl a mystery. An examination Oi
the marshes revealed, however, that
at regular intervals there lay along
certain lines across the bog little piles
cf slates. So small and inconspicuous
wore they that a; first'it seemed hardly possible that^they should, have
served as.marks to guide the passage
of an army/particularly as pari of the
German retreat:had; been .carried out
at night, when these little slate cairns
would'be quite invisible.' But when
night time the French scouts who
had penetrated into the marshes noticed a curious thing. Everyone of
tl ose little piles of slates began, as
darkness 'deepened, lo glow with a
dim light. They were examined more
closely and then it was found that
they had all been covered with phosphorescent pain*-, and the' irregular
line which they marked was that of
the solid ground among the swamps
along which a narrow column of
troops and even of guns could pass in
safety. v
��� Evidently the whole of this dangerous district had been carefully surveyed and mapped out. The prefect of
the department remembsred ��� thai
some months ago a party of German
engineers had come to the authorities
with a proposition that they should be
allowed to examine- the district .and
establish' a peat cutting industry if
their researches showed that it would
be profitable. Permission was readily
enough given an.l the German engineers disappeared into the marshes,
vliere for several weeks they worked
undisturbed. Tlun they came back
io the authorities of the department.
"It is loo early yet lo give a definite
opinion," Ihey said, "but wo will return to Berlin and consult our principals and we may come back shortly."
Ramified Royalty
The Dutch are uncomfortable just
now iff having a German \usband lo
advise their, admirable and beloved
queen, and the German Prince Consort is equally uncomfortable. H> may

from the post he had .well earned and

High Explosive and Complicated
Mechanism of Death-Dealing
Jn tho titanic struggle now rending
the European continent, torpedoes already have served a not inconsiderable purpose. Modern torpedoes are
the most deadly machines of war ever
evolved. They are much more powerful than those used in tho last great
war, the Japanese-Russian conflict.
Torpedoes arc manufactured today so
deadly that one of them is,capable of
sending ti.e mo:;l powerful dreadnought to the boviom.
Trinitrotoluene, which, for the bene,
fit of the uninitiated, 'may be printed
tri-nitro-tolu-one, and is curtly spoken
of by navy men as T.N.T., is the
compound on wheh Germany is relying to reduce our ballleshin"~strengtli
before her^-ruam fleet puts forth to
give battle.
It-Is the explosive in .the warhead of
the modern torpedo. Until quite recent years guncotlon (whose other
name is trinitrocellulose),. was used,
but the discovery of means whereby
j-.N.T. could be detonated, made the
use of Miat much more deadly explosive possible in the torpedo. It is
r. rival of picric acid (of which lyddite is a form) and,is derived from
nitric acid and 'toluence, which is one
of the benzine series.
It is remarkably insensitive lo
shock or friction, and can be sawn
through, or fired- on at short range by
rifle, bullets and will not-detonate.
Even fulminate of mercury, for many
years the only detonator used, is not
powerful enough to explodo T.N.T.
effectively," and consequently, next to
the fulminate in the cap of the detonator, a quantity of tetryl Is placed,
though it has been stated that in the
most modern torpedoes this has been
replaced by lead azide, which is absolutely insensitive to damp, and-has
other 'advantage.
The latest: pattern of German torpedo Is of 21% inch diameter, carries
a bursting charge of 290 pounds of
explosive, and has a range of about
7,500 yards.
Most people-know that a torpedo is
a cigar shaped" projectile, but only a
few realize that it is about 17 feet
long. . Nor probably are many people
aware of the uncanny devices which
have beeu added to the torpedo'one

The torpedo is fired nearly always
from a tube beneath the water 'line,
and traveling as: it does, through the
water" and not through: the air, is always liable ��� be deflected from its
course. Moreover, now that it is destined to be used against ships of high
speed on the move, instead of-merely
atvaiichored vessels, .-'���was originally
the casq, the torpedo lieutenant, in
arranging the firing of the torpedo,
has to allow.both for the speed of the
projectile towards the enemy's ship
and the speed at which the ship is
traveling across the path of the torpedo.
To correct, the tendency lo leave the
straight course, a gyroscopic attachment was invented, and, to make additionally certain that the torpedo

m les. Cyprus has been a protectorate of Great Britain since IS7S, much'
as Egypt has been controlled by iho
British, although both in reality belonged to Turkey. This is not tho
first* time that Cyprus comes definitely and distinctly . under British control, Richard I. having conquered" it
on his way east when on the Third
Crusade. From l."370 and throe centuries thereafter, or up till ISIS, Cyprus was iiiidtr Turkish rule, and was
forced to endure all the usual forms
of Turkish misrule and cruelty. Since
3878, it has been admir.islerc..
through the British colonial office by
means of an arrangement made with
Turkey in that year. The government
is carried out by a high commissjou-
er, assisted by executive and legislative councils.
The island of Cyprus had a population in 1901 of ^07,021', consisting
largely of Greeks and Turks. Aboii:
twenty-two per, cent, of the island adhere to' the Mohammedan religion.
The island produces the usual Mediterranean fruits,/wines, tobacco, silk,
sponges,, some grain and t considerable amount of mineral wealth. 'The
capital is Nicosia, which is located iu
the interior, the two chief ports being Limasol and Larnaca. Now that
Cyprus is a definite part of ihe British
empire, it is only to be expected that
a more vigorous policy in connection
with the development of. the. island'.',
resources and tho cultivation of, its'
commerce, will be proceeded with. The
island is an important1 possession, as
it commands the Levant.���Montreal

How is this done? Much criticism
is levelled at military and civil authorities for the' leniency displayed.-in
the civil courts, ;and- elsewhere, to-
'wards spies'who are'eaugnt, more or
loss "iu the act." The German method,
ot instantly shooting spies or hang-'

Germans���naturalized or otherwise���

enclosed in a compound from which
any attempt to escape would at once
be followed t'y a sentry's bullet. This
is no easy matter and .cannot bo accomplished in a moment, be the authorities ever so eager in its prosecution".
Thai it should be done there is little
little room to doubt. The fault really lies in the .system which' lias permitted such shoals of. Germans and
other "undesirables" to land without,
until recently, any organized system
of registration or-means of tracing
nc\s armals, after- they-have been
:-.0n:ie little rime in tho country.
When tlie Aliens act was, passed in
1905 a certain restriction was imposed
upon the scum of Europe being
"dumped" .upon Britain's shores, aimed chiefly at persons from,, southern
Europe, landing here inta state of penury or disease without relatives or
definite means, of subsistence later on.
It made no provision, however, for
that more daj^orou-. ".nd higher class
of intruder, from which iho higher
class of German spy has been"taken.
Take tho case of that master, spy,
Armgaard Karl Graves, whose mach-
nations.��it will bj remembered, .the
New York American made considerable "efforts to immask some months
ago without avail\owing to the absolute refusal on the part of the British
government authorities to give any in-
roi'iuntioii about him. - Graves is as
well known in "America as he is in
London. His skill and ingenuity at
liis? trade is well set forth in a hook
he has jivl published entitled "The
oecfptp of ilic German War Office."
Whether it he exaggerated, sen'sation-
\" or a distorted record oi." facts, it i
proves bevond doubt the thoroughness j
of the German spy system, the utter'
imsorupulousness of those even in
hi��h places and the splendid efficen'cy
with which tho work allotted them is
carried out by the German profession-
al spy.
Here, then, is the real miswit to
the-question as lo how 1t is done. No
German spy is sent out on his difficult mission without, a complete training in the- art of discovering the- secrets of' tho country whoso "iiitolli-''
Z nee" department he has to probe.

Destruction  of the Timber Only Part  of   the   Immense'   Damage  Done    ���������  -  Experts state that forest soils have  lost and are losing much fertility owing to forest fires which, doing apparently little immediate damage, rob tho  soil of accumulations"? of   humus.   In  many sections'land is "being cleared  for  farming  and,   Avhere  such  forest  land has xot been'burned, there is a  large percentage of vegetable matter  which provides'5 considerable fertility  and a good texture.   Moreover, as this  soil has a greater capacity to absorb  and retain moisture, it is less likely to  be washed and gullied  under heavy  rains.   For these reasons, in addition  to- the  damage lo  standing    timber,  authorities   agree   that    wood   lands  should be'.very carefully safeguarded  against fire.

Protracted Defensive Fighting  That success waits on the one who  undertakes the offensive has been recognized many times in accomplishments of a peaceful nature, and that  the same rule. holds good in war, is  illustrated in the recent operations of  the armies in Europe. It has been  generally conceded that real success  in war results' '"only from offensive  operations;   . :' -r  ' It'is'true that in order to gain "time  to.' complete������������������: tlie 'mobilisation of    its  troops, .or.-for other reasons, a nation  in  danger    of Invasion    by a -more  powerful or better prepared neighbor  may bo competed'..to assume a defensive attitude.   Its highly disciplined, ^aml    efficient    armies    skilfully  handled, may   be   able to inflict tremendous losses on the'invader by. repeatedly compelling him to attack and  carry strong defensive positions, previously prepared, in order to continue  lib advance into  the defender's territory. The" defenders, by a succession  of well timed and orderly retreats to  selected positions in    the   rear, may  i-ccced in drawing their more aggressive opponents into a position where  all the advantages, strategic and taci-  cal, wiirtlien   be on the side of   the  defenders.   All this, however, will result in little or no advantage to the  defenders unlesr    they are prepared  and  willing promptly to assume the  offensive  at  the psychological moment, and thus turn the tables on the  weakened enemy and drive him out of  the country.  A protracted defence is dangerous.  Recent events show that a skilful  commander can play it successfully  against tbe best armies the world has  ever seen. We are not yet in position  to count tlie cost or to predict the  ultimate results. At date of writing  tho counter offensive is meeting with  success. This is in accord -with the  rules of. the game.  Mistook the Craft  IT.' G.

In doing so, it is bad  practice to use staples to attach the  wire directly to the tree, thus ensuring that the wire will become over  grown and imbedded in the wood.  Not only is the tree thereby ruined or  injured but, "further, it is impossible  to remove the fencing without cutting  either the wire or the tree.  A better way, protecting both the  tree and the fence, in first to nr.il to  the tree a strip of wood about, four  inches wide and one inch thick, of a  length to suit the height of the fence.  Tho wire fence can then be stapled  to this strip This will secure the  fence and will not interfere with Hie  tree growth.

There is a reason  for this. It .accomplished a great  deal of permanent improvements at  a minimum cost, and the cowmen  dation has heen earned. The council for the present year is practically  the same as the one which has just  relinquished office, and the citizens  e>in therefore rest assurred that the  business of the city has been placed  in competent hands  Wl      /tf^iAKI^UrtSMtM  The controversy maintained   in   the  ������ty($mmmxkBmn newspaper3 b; correbpoil(J(Jnts i8  G.

As an example of the  nature of the discussion we print  he following letter, written by Robert Flaherty, which appeared in a  recent issue, of the New York  Herald: "' y  "In 1S73 Sir Lambton Lorraine,  commanding the British gunboat  Niobe, at Kingston, Jamaica, heard  of the shooting of a part of the crew  of the Virginius at Santiago, Cuba,  by order of the Spanish governor-  general, and that the rest of the  crew was to be shot on the following  morning. Sir Lambton,at lull speed  went to Santiago. He doubled  shotted his guns, cleared his decks  and sent word to the captain-general  of Cuba that he wanted those  Americans alive or he would batter  down the town. They were delivered  at once. When Sir Lambton Was  asked by what authority he acted,  he answered, 'By the laws of God  and humanity.' )f)  "In the present day t the German  government is starving the people  of Belgium and the United States is  trying to feed them. ' Why can not  our president follow the precedent  of Sir Lambton Lorraine?"  Don't wait, too long  to  .     have that  There should   be   no   unpleasant  diplomatic frction   between   Great  "Britain and the United  States  over  the   American   protest,  unless it is  caused by   newspapers that  should  he   muszled  and people who gloat,  at   a   safe  vantage, over seeing hu  man blood^spilled.    Insist on international   arbitration,   and   -let  the  diplomats settle this question. They  have been  entrusted   with office to  do this.  There have been no startling de  Vilopments in the European war  since our last issue, although the  allies have made some gains. The  most portentious event of the week  wast he despatching >f an ultimatum  by Italy to Turkey, demanding an  apology and the saluting of the  Italian flag for the assault on the  Italian consul at Hodeida.' The ul  timatum expired last Sunday without Turkey having made a satisfactory reply, and the Itaiian fleet  sailed under sealed orders.  The world should be proud of  Wood row Wilson, president of the  United States. He loves peace and  good will towaids all men, and recently, mainly through his efforts, the  red hand of Mars has been kopt away  from the starry flajj;. Huw different  to Roosevelt. That'mortal chunk of  the flesh and the devil, for his own  aggrandizement, would laugh at the  crash of empires and wallow in the  blood of men, mingled with the tears  of women and children. It is well for  America that Teddy can no longer  touch the button that makes the  wheels go.round.���������Greenwood Ledge.

Some  A Confession  After a pleasant and stormy career  of twenty years, during which time I  have managed and mismanaged about  that numbar of 'country newspapers,  I am forced to the confession that I  know less about running one than any  of the 3,987,463,221 subscribers who  have from time to tune been on my  circulation lists.  No person who has ever read one  of my newspapers but has been frank  to admit that he could do just as well  himself and a darn site better. From  time to time some of the more ardent  ones have, even-pushed me off the  tripod and proceeded to sway the  destinies of mankind themselves, with  one .hand full of scissors, the other  full of paste and a head full of nothing. Goodness knows I have been  "shown" often enough so that I ought  to know how to run a newspaper by  this time.    But! don't.  What 1 do know is this: "If you  want a newspaper run to suit you���������  run it yourself." The only person I  have been able to please has been  myself, and sometimes I have fell  down even on that.  However, I am going to take an  other chance on it. If I can succeed  in pleasing one person I think I shall  be making some progress, even though  that person be myself. There is a  whole lot of fun running a country,  newspaper, if you look at it in the  right way. An editor is always quite  afeilow in his little community. He  is sought after by the bankers, the  bakers, the butchers, the grocers, the  gas   man, the wood man,  the freight  reset.   Your diamond set  while you wait.

Mr. Gunn  came to Rossland on Thursday last  from Spokane. Lieut.

Standing fully six feet  in height and weighing 195 pounds,  he is a splendid figure, and ono^that  inspires admiration as a soldier of his  country. He served through the  South African campaign with the  Fifth Canadian Mounted Rifles, and  since then has served the Uui'ed  States in the Philippines aud Mexico.

PUNISHMENT  OF  COWARDICE  Meant Death or Everlasting Disgrace  in  German  Army  Punishment for cowardice in the  German army at the time of the Thirty Years' war was so severo as to be  ferocious. In the year 1C42 tho Swedish General Torstensson. stormed  Leipzig. A force under the command  of the Grand JJuke Leopold gavo him  battle before the gates of the city, but  during tho engagement tho ' Madlon-  issho regimeut became suddenly  panic stricken aij^l fled.  Punishment immediately followed.  When tho regiment had again assembled, six other regiments surrounded it, and tried it by court martial in the open field. The verdict was  that tho colonel- and--tho captains  should dlo by the .sword, and' that  every tenth man among tho non-commissioned officers and men should bo  hanged.  The stern voriliet was carried out to  the letter, except that at tho request  of Leopold the men wore shot instead  of hanged; Col. Georgo Madlonische  whs beheaded, after he had sought in  vain for a pardon. . Tho survivors  were consigned to quarters with other  commands'; and the regiment.never re-  gained its.name or former prestige. In  those days,' there was no alternative  but to--be bravo.������ Cowardice" meant  either deaih "or everlasting disgrace.

At the outset I did not  pay much attention to it as I thought  the trouble would pass away. In this  I was disappointed, for I soon found  myself  rapidly growing  worse.    My  right arm and. leg began to jerk and  twitch all the-lime, even when.I was  in bed, and I found great difficulty in  walking or doing any work.   Finally  the trouble affected my speech and it  was with difficulty I made myself understood.   Of course I was doctoring  for the  trouble, but was not    being  helped, and finally the doctor wanted  me  to go. to  the. hospital  for  treatment.   This I did not care to do, and  it was at this stage that I decided to  try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

MUST  STICK  TO GERMAN   NAMES  W. N. U. 1029  Aliens' Discarded Nomenclature Will  Have to Stand as Before  War .  - All Germans and Austrians in the  old country who have been in a hurry  to change their names to British must  revert to their discarded names. A  new order in council published in a  supplement to the London Gazette  says:  "An alien -enemy shall not, after October 12, 1914, for any purpose assume  or use, or purport to assume or use,  or continue the assumption or use, of  any name other than that by which he  was ordinarily known at the date of  the commencement of the war."  It is further provided than an alien  enemy will be committing a breach of  this order if he carries on, or he is  member of partnership or firm under any other name than that under  which such trade or business was carried, on at the beginning of tho war.  Nearly 500 changes of name have  been made by deed poll since August  1st.  By a proclamation in the same issue  all insurance business with an enemy  is prohibited. No new policy- (includ-  iug reinsurance) may bo entered into  with or for tho benefit of an enemy;  nor may anyone accept or give effect  to any Insurance made with or for  the benefit of an enemy before the  outbreak of the war.  Insurance transactions with an enemy's branch in British Allied or neu.  tral territory shall be considered as  transactions by or with an enemy.

QUANTITY AND QUALITY OF THE BRITISH AR'MY  German Paper Endeavors to Convince  its Readers  that Great  . Britain is' Unable to Raise an Army of any Strength���������  .   May Modify Their Opinion  When tho Frankfurter Zeitung  handles the subject of recruiting in  England it is well worth reading, tor  this paper is what Palinerston U3ed to  call a good fooloraeter, and lets us  know very accurately what the ordinary German thinks. <  Jt is no doubt most encouraging to  German opinion to bo told that all our  recruiting is a blutf; that we have  only 600,000 recruits; that the million  of which I-lerr ltepmgton wrote is a  fiction of the imagination; that we  cannot improvise a held army���������and so  on and so on. These things will  eootho many sorrowful Germans In a  gloomy autumn, and we have "no reason whatever to deprive these' poor  people of anything that they can invent for themselves-iu the way of con-  eolation. .'  ' ��������� But at the same time there is no  particular reason why we should allow  the rest of the world to harbor thess  silly illusions. 'Wo have in organized  form, in the British Isles at the present  moment, not 600,000 men, but exactly  double this number, namely 1,200,000  men, and the number grows almost  faster than we can cope with it. At  the same time the stream of men  from the British Dominions and depend' ucies begins to How in. The  first-100,000.aro already with us, and  from all corners of Jtlio empire thero  has begun, and there will continue to  come in so long as the war lasts, a  steady stream oil drafts to maiutain  tho strength of "units in the Held, and  of fresh units to increase the numbers of tho divisions at the front.  The gentle Germans told Mr. Krug-  er that we oould only place 70,000. men  in tho field, and Oom Paul was so little  versed in the habits and customs of  bur people as to believe his mentors.  When we produce:!, seven or eight  times" as many troops as the German  estimate, the credit .of the Nachrich-  teir Bureau went down to zero at Pretoria. Why should we be unabie to  impiovise' armies when we have so  recently-done n? The Germans'are  perfectly right in one sense only to  tabulate upon what exists. Wo can begin to fight only with what we possess in organized form, trained, officered, and armed, and if it is a question'-of a six weeks' war it is pretty  . bad for us.  nut this is only.a beginning' 1L is  our way, -as well as America's, tc begin to raise our armies after war has  broken out, and to go on raising them  until our .ultimate end:, are achieved.  That is wi.at wc are doing now, and  the l,20o,000 men at home, the'-army  in the field, a_d the hundreds" Ji  thousands of men who are formed or  forming iu' India, Canada, Australia,  New Zealand, South Africa, aud elsewhere are -'inereiy the rimlous upon'  which other armies will eventually be  built up. It is not a question of practicability, but only of-'.time. It stands  to reason that an empire of -100 millions of people can never lr.vk men,  and it also stands to reason tlu-i the,  first' man who realized the vast .resources of-the. British empire anl  knew how to convert" ^hem into terms  of war powex' was ��������� likely to make a  name for himself and incidentally'to  create an army which would, in the  end, confirm our imperial position,  and bring confusion upon the king's  enemies.  This war/for us, has hardly begun.  We have sent- the point of-our ad-  vancedguard into'France, to skirmish  with theenemy. In the .spring the rest  of the advanced guard will.follow, and  somewhere towards the close of 1915  the main body will begin '- to come  within view. We are not in any.hurry. 'We are sorry, of course, for our  allies, that we are even slower than  Russia in--making our. weight felt, but  they can." at least feel happy when  they expect a rest, we shall.be iu a  position to make good war on our own  account. If the nemy wins successes  in the interval so much the better for  him;'but.nothing can arrest the steadily ascending figures of our armies,  and their cost is of little account since  CAVE   LIFE  AT  THE   FRONT  Germany will ultimately have to pay  ���������in territory as w^ll as in money, because the cost of war to the Allies  cannot be met in cash by a Germany  beaten to her knees.  Let us take t'-e thing at its worst,  and imagine'tho penultimate CossacK  on the Urals and tho last French door-  keeper evicted from Bordeaux. Then  we begin a maritime war agak.st Germany, and arc no worse off than when  wo' began, it against Napoleon, anl  when he had nearly all Europen under  ���������his heel. But we are not there yet,  and unless Germany can do much  better than she has done hitherto, our  Allies will keep tho Held ��������� and will  continue to exerciso the came constant and increasing pressure on land  that we already exercise at sea.  The Frankfurter Zeitung should not  worry. We know quite well that wc  have, as our first-duty, to maintain at  its-full strength the point of our'advanced guard in France, and that it  takes time to train cadres, and to turn  out the guns, arms, and ammunition  for the vast numbers which we intend  to place in the field. That is why we  have to declare a moratorium of a,  year or so before we pay back Germany in her own coin, but the debt  Las to be paid, and will bo paid, because the credit of the empire is involved in it. We are not compelled,  like Germany,'to thiave 25'per cent, of  all balances In our banks, and then  scream out that a national loan has  been successful. The heresies that  Germany adopts in matters of finance  only grieve us because there will be  less German cash at the. peace, and  so, compulsorily, more German territory to bo divided up to pay for tlie  war.  'What we, perhaps none of us, quite  realized before this war' broke out,  was that it was not .ordinary and  could not end in an ordinary way.  The power which' Germany has developed, her soaring ambitions, and the  brutality with which she has waged  war, have shown all the Allies that  Germany aims at the hegemony of not  only Europe, biu the world. All the  values of things now change, the  values of money and of lives, and  there is not one citizen of the Allied-  Powers who does :.ot count death in  this war to be a glorious and honorable end, and victory to be worth any  sacrifice in the world There was  never, in any war, such complete unanimity as ' hat now seen in the Allied  r;.nks.  No! Our numbers are not a bluff,  but a very grim reality, as the Frankfurter Zeitung will one day learn lo its  cost. Our men believe that this war  concerns them all, and so they all  come forward voluntarily to take their  part.in it." So . .any were they that  Lord Kitchener had to raise the  st������nu'ard far above any existing in  Europe or he would have been positively overwhelmed. All our men are  volunteers, fighters, and tryers, and  the material���������including the moral and  the" nhysical���������exceeds anything that  has been known in England before.  It is a national war, and as we get  all classes now it is easy to find the  right' material, for the cadres, while  the men work with a will and are  spoiling for a fight. In the Dominions  and India the same conditions prevail. :    .,''���������'������������������:"  Air our men are of a military age,  and we have no troops to show of the  Lands'turm type, now so common. in  the German armies. ��������� We shall bring  forward neither children nor grey-  1'sards, and we shall not allow ourselves to be diverted from our purpose by any reverses, however severe.

Of the latter country it sayj  the effect of the schools is everywhere  apparent iu the widespread- use of the  German language and the steady increase of German  influences.  Siii.ihir hopes n\. entertained in regard to South America. There are  six hundred German schools in Brazil,  it says. In Chili, "tlie government and  the people arc well disponed toward  thcvGermau schools."  In Argentine, It aay.-u, Iho state of  affairs is not wholly satisfactory to  tbe German foreign office," and the  work of spreading Germanism so far  haa hatflittle spirit in those parts of  the country, whe.'o patriotic and national feeling it; making itself manifest. "The people prefer, it iiecins, o  be Argentines; rather than bo Germanized," the report declares.  -. Capturing Trade  The extent to which the subject of  ways and means for capturing tho  trade heretofore enjoyed by Germany  is occupying the ..itention .of British  interests and tho space of British  newspapers must excite admiration  from any source, no matter how partisan. We referred two months ago to  this fact, noting it as a matter of vital  in teres-, to all parties enga^jd in war,  and to neutr.' nations as well that  Great Britain apparently was directing as much energy towards the main,  tenance and the expansion of her  trade as toward the prosecution of tho  war. ^  At "a time whci. the war ��������� .is but a  few weeks old, i. was scarcely a matter for astonishment that -Britain  should be turning her energies toward trade problems to, SJlQb, W. extent. But how,' with the war old, at  least, in point of field operations,  sieges, devastation and destruction, it  cani.ot but arouse astonished admiration to find the British public at home  and in the colonies working steadfastly and with no dimlmiation of ardor to  take advantage o? the trade opportunities afforded by Germany's subnler-  nio" in war.���������Financial American.  Soldiers  Living  Uke  Rabbits  on the  Field .of Battle  An Interesting description of cave  life at tho front is given by Private  S. Harris of the West Kent Regiment.  He states:  "We have been living the lifo of  rabbits, for we burrowed ourselves  in trenches at ���������, and here wo remained for over fifty hours. Jt was  an exciting and not unpleasant experience.  "Tlie bursting o" shells overhead  was eoniinuoio, and it became monotonous. To tlie youngster it was an  awful experience In the earlier stages,  but even he became so accustomed to  the roar overhead that ho raised a  cheer each time shrapnel burst, making such romarks as 'There's another  rocket, Joh-i.'  "When we werj not digging out  recesses wc sat dewn to spin yarns.  Nico lazy life you will say, but not so  1 leasant when a shell bursts directly  over your head. To kill time we  played banker with cigarette cards,  and discussed tlie prospects of our  favorite football teams.  ''Wo were discussing the merits of  players when one chap, who made a  bet that Meredith was a Welshman  and joined Manchester City in 189G,  was struck with a bullet in the knee.-  'I shan't play on Christmas Day for  Maidstone United.'  "When you write please send me  some cigarettes, as I owe a chum  twenty packets, and find out thoda<.e  of Meredith joining Manchester City,  so that I can settle tlie bet.  "We are a, light-hearted lot, and so-  are our officers. We dug out for  them .a kind of subterranean -mess-  room, where they took' their meals:  One fellow decorated it with a few  cijarette cards and some^ pictures he  cut out of a F"ench paper. The-r  grub was 'not exactly what they  would get at tbe Cecil.  ���������"A jollier arid kinder lot of officers  you would not meet m a day's march.  One officer who was well stockeu  with' ciga- ettes divided them among  his men, and we were able to repay  him for his kindness by digging him  out from his mess room.  "A number of uhells toro up the  turf, and the roof and sides'collapsed  like a castle built of cardJ, burying  him and two others. They were in a  nice pickle, but we got them out safe  and sound.  "During the time we "were in those  trenches nearly 500 shells burst over  and around us, but our protection  was so good that not a single chap  was killed and less than a dozen,were  wounded. When we got into the open  air once more and stretched our legs,  it was then we realized what wo had  been subjected to, for tlie ground was  literally strewn with exploded shells.  ��������� "If all goes well we are going to  have a football match tomorrow, as  I have selected a team from our lot  to play the Borderers, who are always  swanking what they can do."  The "Cultured" Germans  "The sights I have aeen would  make' a saint savage against these  German beasts)" writes an English  man at the front.  In thi knapsack of one German  soldier that we captured���������he came  to us begging for l'ooa���������we found to  our horror a little child's hand. In. two  minutes after that, of- course, he was  a dead man. The lieutenant shot  him himself, and the German shriek-  '<-' with fear wiien we 'showed him  his .lestial trophy.  We came another time on the body  of a poor old woman stripped bare  and wantoniy mnti.ated In a horrible  way. What possible motive for such  a deed could the Germans have?. 1  uiive seen the mutilated 'jodies of  young girls lying ou the ro.-dside, and  \ i naked bodies o������ boys impaled on  hedge-stakes.  ."Once we came upon a drunken  orgy ' J! Germans in a village, to their  utter surprise. We', could do nothing  for the wretchs'i women, who had  baeu brought together in "a sort of  shed or open stable in the village  hcreet. Directly we opened fire German cavalry came from all directions.  ���������-.;<.��������� 7 uaa apparently been getting  ready -for an early start. But I think-  w.e avenged these weeping, tortured  women before we dashed on.  Five ^seconds later our road would  have been barred, for a great' tree-  trunk fell into the piace behind us as  we cleared the viLage. The picture of  that shed as "our headlight snone full  upon it, for at most six seconds, is  etched upon my brain.  There were straggling/gasping wo-,  men, with only tattered remnants cf  clothing, boisterous cavalrymen cutting the flesh of one poor girl with  their whir.s, while others were forcing  a handsome, dishevelled woman to  drink from a can, and several men  standing with Uieir arms bound behind them, forced to look oi. at the  frightful spectacle. Wo must have  seemed to those brutal German blackguards  a  thunderbolt  from  luaven."  Not Shot, But Kicked  On the lighter side of the picture is  the following anecdote, which is current, though its absolute truth is not  vouched for:  On a recent occasion a British cavalry subaltern who was cut off from  his men, hid in the edge of a wood by  a road. It was not long before he  saw an unsuspecting armed German  soldier patrolling the road. I-Io could  have shot tho man without warning,  but felt that it \vpuld be ajkjn to murder to kill him lrTcold blood. In order to instil a little of tho spirit of  combat into the affair, therefore, he  crept out of cover, ran up behind  the "Bosch," as our allies would call  him, and gave him a ferocious kick.  Instead of showing fight the startled  ami pained German gave a yell and  ran for dear lifo, leaving the subaltern  lausuiug too hard to shoot.  ���������"������ y  i  INTIMIDATIONS DID NOT MAKE HIM TURN TRAITOR  The Theory and Practice of Modern Warfare as Followed by the  Germans is Explained to a French Captive���������Prophecy  of a Victorious Entry into Nancy was not Fulfilled  A special correspondent, sends Uio  following letter from France, in whicli  is described how a' French prisoner  saw the luiser in tne field.  Opposite me :s a man who has'seeu  the kaiser���������retreat. ���������Ho is a lieutenant of artillery, and he was ;aken prisoner by tho Germans in the early  part of the battle on the plateau of  Nancy.  During the last few days of August  the German army, which had crossed  into Franco from Lorraine, advanced  en Nancy and attempted to storm  that part of the plateau in front of  tho stronghold. The French force was  greatly inferior in numbers In the  early stages of tne fighting, -but had  some batteries of the'much dreaded  75'a. On the slope immediately facing tbe German advance guard a  large number' of old cannon, now almost obsolete, wore placed as a blind,  while the deadly lighter guns. pounded away from a hidden position iu the  rear. , ���������  ���������' -  The enemy were completely deceived, and for fifteen hours bombarded  the useless pieces, from which only a  few shots were fired. -My travelling  companion was one of a small detachment in charge of the old guns.  While recennoitaring some distance  down the slope ho was surprised by a  German scouting party, and taken  prisoner.  Du.'ing the evening the Germans,  thinking that tho batteries they had  been sh.cl.iug. all .qay were silenced,  attempted a cavalry charge. The  French gunners , in the rear waited  until they were, .bout S00 yards distant, and the order was then passed  along tho line, "At 750 yarJs���������Fire!"  Nothing., coulo. be seen in the dim  light, but the on-rush slackened.  A minute or two passed, and then  the order was giv^n, "At 600 yards--  by batteries���������Fire1/' This time the  horsemen were perceptibly stopped,  and on a patch of ground lit up by  the moon could be seen masses heap-  ��������������������������� \\\ s.oc! here and there a riderless  horse rising to its-,feet and dashing  away. For th . res: of the night there  was complete quiet.  Monn while my informant was    led  ���������  o tb   rear of the Germaniines,  and was closely questioned regarding  ���������'.ho French positions.   He refused to  say a word, and was thereupon threatened with death.  "I am a prisoner of war," he said,  "and you may not shoot me."  "You may understand the theory ot  war," replied the German staff officer, "but you evidently don't realize  that it is qui to different from the  practice."  lie persistently declined lo give his  captors any information which might  b'e useful to them, and was thereupon,  searched and placed in a lent to sleop  with a guard at the entrance. Next  morning lie was given no breakfast,  but at midday he received something  to eat, and was led to the headquarters of the genmal staff."  ��������� Here he again refused to answer  any questions, but it was hinted to  him that he would bo given ono more  chance before sentence was passed on  him. While oeing taken back to his  tent between guards he was jeered at  insulted by the soldiers. At ona  point a number of German officers  with field glass were looking -at a  hill, some distaucc away, on which,  could be seen a large force of cav-  airy.  ��������� "See," said one of the officers. "I  will show you something magnificent.  You .will be the first Frenchman to  have seen tho Kaise'r since tho' war  began."  Tho prisoner took the proffered  field glass and saw that the horsemen were in parade order, ana that In  front of them was a group of officers,,  most of whom wo'*e medals.  "Now," said the owner of the field-  glasses, "look a little to the right."  Tho French lieutenant did so, and  saw a solitary figure on a knoll of  ground watching intently die fight in  the distance.  "That is he," said the German officer. "Now if you like you can stay  here and see us enter Nancy."  But tho Germans did not enter  Xancy. In the early hours of the  morning the reinforcements for which  the defenders were waiting had been  sent, and an hour afterwards the  whole- of tho attacking force retired.  Turning round, the prisoner saw that  the brilliant cavalry in parade order  were charging���������with their backs to  Xancy. The solitary figure to tha  right was no longer there.  PASSING OF THE FORTS  Modern   Guns   Readily   Reduce   Fortified   Cities  Formerly fortified cities were an  important feature for national defense, but the modern gunmaker has  apparently radically changed, conditions. Permanent fortifications consist of def -nsive works constructed by  a nation to secure permanent possession of strategical positions of importance within the territory under its  control. These would generally include national capitals, great commercial and railway centres, harbors,  important bridges and .mountain  passes, great concentration camps aua  depots of supplies.  Many European cities are really  large forts surrounded by one or more  lines of smaller detached forts located at strategic points some distrnca,  varying from five to fifteen miles,  from the walls of the-city. Paris, Bel-  fort, Strassburg or some of the niany  examples of this type. Other cities,  like Liege,- are surrounded by one or  more lines of de-...ched forts, while the  city itself Is practically open or unfortified.  Earth embankments, stone and concrete walls and dteel shields'and turrets enter into the construction of the  modern permanent fortifications. They  are built in times of peace, armed  with the latest type of heavy guns,  and are supposed to embody the best  thoughts of the strategic and of the  military engineer.  Our text books tell us that "a position protected by permanent fortifications and properiy garrisoned should  yield only after a protected siege."  This was quite true yesterday, but today the gvnmaker is turning out a  new portable howitzer of wonderful  power, which, if wc can trust the contents of recent war bulletins, is sounding the death knell of the permanent  fortifications  of   . odern   times.  [jOiil boforc the advent of the 11-  Inch howitzer  a number of military j  writers ex; ressed   strong   doubts   of  the value of permanent fortifications  as applied to  large  cities  and  great  camps.   They argued, and cited many I  Instances  in support tnat a fortified  city does not prevent an invasio-i of!  thi     national   territory  by  a  .-strong;  force sufficiei t to invest the l'ortiriedj  place and Immobilize its defenders���������j  compelling them to capitv.Wne within a .  comparatively  short time���������-while    lie  proceeds     'uh   tli-   main   operations  with the bulk of his troops.  llussia has demonstrated that .she ia  not the Russia of tht-Uapanosfi war.

NOT   READY  TILL  SPRING  Amor.g This 1,000,000 Are 200,000 Old  Soldiers���������Weakly Men Weeded  The bulk of Lord Kitchener's new  army  of  1,000,000  men now  coming  into being will not, according to -an  expert military view, be read., for service in the field until next spring, but  owing to  the superior class of men  who have responded to the call their  training is progressing rapidly. Among  them,   according     to     authoritative  circles,  there are nearly 200,000 old  soldiers who have served in the British regular army for periods ranging  from seven to twelve years, and these  form an admirable stiffening for the  new    recruits from civil life, whom  they assi3t in training. To this must  be-added many men who have served,  short periods in the volunteer forces  of the militia.  All w-eakly men among the new recruits have leen rapidly weeded out  during the stiff training and most of  the men are developing into fine shots,  while their excellent physical condition will make them a valuable addition to the vast allied army which will  be in the field next spring to recommence the campaign against Germany.  -Holland's claim to exclusive control  of the mouth of the Scheldt, threatened by the German occupation of Antwerp, was formerly far more com-  ] -ehenslve than at present. The  claim dates ,lrom the blocivu.de of the  Scheldt, proclaimed by Alva iu 15S4,,  which at one blow destroyed the  maritime power and wealu of Antwerp. From being an act of war, th������  blockade passed into an international  condition, embodied in a succession  of treaties, whereby the Dutch were  given entire control of the navigation  of the Scheldt. This right was exercised to close the Scheldt absolutely,  and thereby pre-ont all rivalry on the  part of Antwerp to the great Dutch,  ports of Amsterdam and otterdam.  Napoleon swept away tlie restriction  when he -waited Antwerp Li 1803, aud  docks, ships, anl commerce sprang:  up again as by niufiic.  Th permanent prohibition or vodka  iu Russia is equivalent to a measure  in this country prohibiting tho sale of  spirits. Vodka is neither more nor  less than whisky- It was ence rye-  whisky, just as Sco'cii and Irish whisky were once maao from barley malt.  Nowadays it is made, like ordinary  whisky, with a patent, still, the usual  materials being potatoes and maize.  It does not matter a great deal what  material is used as grist in making a  spirit if it is distilled with a patent  still, which supplies practically puro  alcohol. There seems to be no reason  in the nature of things why vodka  should be any more harmful or mora  potent than whisky. It is of about tho  same alcoholic strength. But It is  usually drunk neat. The vodka shopa  ar.i not public houses. The spirit i������  sold in flasks for consumption off th������  premises, that is, immediately outsld������.
