C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 29, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAR  The first regular meeting  of the  1915 city council was held in   the  council chambers last Monday nighti  Mayor-GaV and  Aid   Bonthron,  Bi'ckerton, Donaldson,   Manly, Mc-  .  Galium and Smith were present.  A communication   was received  from the inspector of municipalities  regarding the investment of sinking  fund monies'in the provincial 4������ per  cent bonds.    It was referred to the  finance committee.  ,Ald. McCallum and City Clerk  Hutton,'v appointed at the last meeting as a committee, to draft a relu-  tion protesting against an extension  ��������� of time,, being granted the, Kettle  Valley Railway company to complete its North Fork branch to  Franklin camp, submitted the following, ^ijich was endorsed, and  copies of i^ were ordered sent to Pre-  - mier McBride-and  to our member  at Victoria:  Whereas, Notice has appeared in  the daily papers that the Kettle  Valley Railway company intends to  - aPP,y to the provincial eove'rnment  - ���������* -.at the coming session for an exten-  - B on of time for the completion of its  North Fork line to Franklin;  And whereas, extensions of time  -for the completion of this line have  already   been   granted  to the said  company;  And   whereas, in   the  agreement  dated   the  10th day_ of June, 1913.  to which the said railwav   company  and the city council of the city   of  Grand Forks were parties,   the said  railway company,   notwithstanding  other  concessions   and    considpra  tions, did   promise and agree  "To  prosecute further construction of the  said   line   so soon  as traffic conditions warrant further construction";  And whereas, the  exhaustive  report of the resources and traffic conditions of the North  Fork   district,  recently   issued   by Mr. Andrew G.  Larson, government expert,  proves  beyond .question   that   the p<esf nt  traffic conditions not only  warrant  the   immediate   completion of-said  line, but proves conclusively that the  whole  district,   abounding with la  tent wealth, is   seriously hampered  for want of transportation  facilities;  And whereas,  the cost of   com-  pleteing said line would be comparatively small as to the great   benefit  the ���������district  would  derive   from   it  when completed;  Be it therefore resolved. That the  city   council   of the city of Grand  Forks, in regular session'assembled,  urge   upon   Sir  Richard McBride,  premier of   British  Columbia,  and  his ministers and colleagues, the inestimable importance of the said line  of railway, and ask that, in the  interests   of  the   district, they insist  upon the immediate construction of  the same; and that the city,  clerk  be instructed to forward,a  copy   of  the  resolution   to Sir Richard McBride, premier of British Columbia.  The   chairman   of the   board of  works reported that the fill on Winnipeg avenue was progressing satisfactorily.  The matter of the  deed   for   the *  Chairman Bickerton, of the health  and relief committee, reported a few  cases of destitntion as deserving of  assistance,  On motion of Aid. Manly and  McCallum, the city clerk's salary  was restored, to the. old figure of  $120   per' month.  City Clerk; Hutton presented a  comparative statement respecting  collections of water and light rates  during recent years. The statement  showed that the percentage of collections had lately materially increased.  Aid. Manly was granted leave to  introduce a'temporary loan bylaw.  It authorizes a temporary loan of  $15,000. It passed through the  committee stage, and under a suspension of the rules was read for  the third time.  It is almost certain that when the  British Columbia Copper compauy  issues its annual statement late this  winter it will show very important  additions to ore reserves in the new  properties around. Copper mountain, says the New York Mining  Age.  -}. A year   ago   the; report showed  5,000,000 tons of ore, an increase of  1,000,000 tons over the   estimate of  the year previous   This ore   is  said  co average 1.87 per cent copper and  60 cents per ton in gold and, silver.  It is nearly twice as rich  in  copper  as the original properties, and  nearly   as   rich   in   gold silver  values.  Whati8 equally important, the ores  of Cjpper mountain furnish   desirable sulphur for fluxing   purposes,  and will make an   admirable   mixture with the sulphur-lean old  ores  in the company's smelter at  Greenwood.  There are also on Copper mountain 4,000,000 tons of probable ore  running around 1.6 per cent copper,  &i well as 4,000,000 tons of possible  ore cot yet blocked but.  No. 1 dril 1 hole, reported last  week to have passed through 150  feet of thickness of 2^- per cent ore.  Although it furnishes only a fragmentary drill-hole record, it seems  destined to play an important part  in increasing the estimated tonnage  as well as the grade of the ore available at the new Copper mountain  property.  A concentrator will be built when  the railroad is completed to Copper  mountain, and concentrates will be  shipped to the Greenwood smelter.  The concentrating mill will be  equipped with the oil flotatiou process developed to so high a ftage at  Butte and Superior.  Lieutenant Foster, formerly editor  and manager   of   the Nelson Daily J coal  News, was married in Nelson a few  days ago to Miss Annie Ross.  The term   of   the .provincial  ad  ministration ending March 31, 1915,  has  been   a   banner   year for royal  commissions.   They blossomed out  in all directions, and   not one   suffered for lack of a  fertilizer.    There  were commissions on labor,  agriculture, Vancouver  school   board,- coal  production, - Indian    affairs,     and  others   of   lesser     magnitude,   the  whote costing the  province, according to the public accounts   volume,  about $150,000.  The   royal   commission  on labor  cost $39,368.25; to   be exact.    The  chairman,    H. G. Parsons,    labored  for 270 days -at twenty five  dollars  a day, receiving,   in  addition,   $2,-  039.80   for   expeuses,   making his  total. $9,389.80,. which   helped   to  assuage   h s   grief  over  the loss of  the nomination for Columbia in the  last election.   John Jardine received  twenty dollars a day, for  225 days,  and   for   expenses   $1,623.75,   his  total being $6,123.75.    He  has   recovered  fully  from his defeat by a  fellow Tory in Erquimalt in   1912,  thank you.    The   three   remaining  commissioners   were   similarly'  remunerated, but it will be  observed  that-the chairman' ran out -forty-five  days and five dollars  a \.ay   ahead  of them.    As a foot note,   it may be  added that the government   has   no  intention of acting during  the   cur  rent year upon the recommendations  made by this, expensive.commission.  Next comes the royal commission  on   agriculture.    This cost $42,673  during the year covered by  the   report.  Chairman Hay ward and Commissioner Lucas,    who   visited   Europe and Australia respectively, being members cf the legislature,could  not receive any specified  remunera  tion, so they had to be content with  "traveling expenses   and   disbursements" of $4,537.50 in the case  of  Mr. Hay ward and $3,860 13 in  the  case of Mr. Lucas.    '"V conclusion  can nut be avoid      .uat  those gentlemen did not  conduct  themselves  abroad   with   the democratic  sim  plicity which  distinguishes them at  home/Commissioner Campbell had  twenty dollars a day  for 287 days,-  and  in   addition   $1,939.30 for ex  penses.    The   other commissioners  worked thirty days less and   for remuneration and   expenses received  sums ranging from $5,364 to $6,443.  The   eecretary,   C.   B. Christensen,  drew a salary of $1,950,   while   his  traveling  expenses    and    disburse  ments reached the substantial figure  $3,763.    As   another  foot  note, it  may be stated that the recommendations of  this costly   board, also, are  to   remain   iu   the   air  for twelve  months.  The Vancouver   gentleman   who  was   appointed to   inquire into the  production   of   the   province  Mr. Parsons, but there ought not to  de any ill-feeling ^ver the fact.  But  the commissions alluded to  are   mere  incidents  in comparison  with the   board   appointed   by the  Dominion   and   provincial governments lo investigate the Indian lands  of  British   Columbia.    This   body  seems   to   have  become one of our  permanent institutions.    Up  to.the  end of March  31,   1914, it had cost  $80,790,   and   although the figures  J for the present year  are not  available, they probably are not less -than  those of the year covered by the report.    Of course half of this expense  is   borne  by  the Dominion, but as  there is no apparent prospect  of an  early termin-itioti of  the board's ac  tivities, it is safe to predict that before its report is submitted the commission will have cost the  province  at least ,$100,000.  None of the commissions received less than  $7,670,  which   included   living  and allowance, while the secretary drew dowh  the large sum of $10,980, representing salary $7.320,-and living allowance $3,660.

The  provincial government is also  mak  ing arrangements for supplying seed  oats and alfalfa at cost   prices.

The minister believed that a large  trade could be developed   with the  United  Kingdom   by   way  of   the  Panama   canal.

HIDDEN CREEK  The two smelters of the Granby  company are capable of turning out  fifty million pounds of blister copper annually.  A shipment of 1400 ions of mattn  from the Hidden Creek smelter -arrived at tho Granby smelter in  this  city   this   week.    The  matte contains   a   high   percentage   of  iron,  and it is being run through the  furnaces as a flux for the Phoenix ore.  This was the first shipment   of this  nature   received at the local works,  but if the  experiment  proves   successful   and   profitable, other shipments are sure to follow.

C,  TO  -i:f"  we  STORY  OF   BIG   FIGHT  ; 1  M  ''0:  m  British     Regiment     for     Five   Days  Fought in Trenches Knee Deep  in the Water  -     A   thrilling    incident,    or.   rather,  series   of   incidents,   which   occurred  near   Troyon   during   the   prolonged  battle  of  the  Aisne,  is  recorded,  in  'which   the   doggc'dness,   resourcefulness,  and  cool bravery  shown  by  a  detachment, of the  Northamptonshire  regiment,  who . played    the    central  part in the little drama, may be taken  -as   typical   of  the   spirit  which  prevails   amongst   the   troops     at    the  front.  Three officers���������one c?,ptain and two  subalterns���������and about 160 men of the  reginient had to entrench themselves  by the roadside some distance in advance of the main body. In front of  this little band was a German entrenchment containing ��������� from 400 to  500 men, only a turnip field, something like 250 yards in width, separating tiro two forces. For five di\vs  the British had to remain in their  trench, which was knee deep iu water  draining in from the road. The men  were without their greatcoats, these  having been burnt during the retreat  from Mons.  Sleep was difficult to obtain, as,  apart from the general discomforts  and the need" for watchfulness, lhe  trench was shelled at intervals 'by  German guns, situated ..beyond the  enemy's . entrenchment. To the roar  of the British was a haystack, behind the shelter of which lay. some  seventy severely wounded Germans,  left there by their countrymen-. By  crawling On all fours" to this, "hospital"���������where, incidentally, help, was  given - to the wounded���������hay was obtained for the trencn, and. upon  bundles of this, through which' the  water percolated with annoying persistency, the men strove to ..obtain  sleep at fitful intervals. Water and  bully 'beef had to be brought up from  the rear at night by-crawling along  the ground, for to show oneself was  to invite a shot from the enemy's  trench.  Once the haystack sheltering the  German wounded was set on fire by  a. German shell. To go to their  wounded foes' assistance was, owing  to heavy fire, out of the question,  much as the English wished to do so.  To their horror they could hear-the  cries of the more .dangerously wounded men, who were being burned alive,  they being unable to crawl away. And  so the days passed. Ague made its  appearance in. the Northamptonshire  trench, and ^this together with men  wounded, sadly reduced the numbers  of effective combatants.  But the true British spirit was not  to be broken. One man, a "crack"  shot, wearing a woollen knitted headgear, adorned with turnip leaves,  crawled out to different positions on  successive nights, and, lying amidst  ��������� the growing crop, waited with wonderful patience until a German should  show himself. A.pull of>the trigger,  a cry of pain, and there was one foe  the less. '  At length came the climax. The  foe���������unaware, of course, of the  strength of their, opponents-^put up  their rifles and arms in token of surrender, and advanced across the field  in scattered formation/ The English  subaltern-left his trench to meet the  enemy. A private advanced, but the  subaltern demanded that an officer  should come. forward. The. private  retired,, only to be replaced, by another private. Again���������this time in  in peremptory tones���������came the request for an officer.  "You are", my prisoner," said the  English officer. "No," replied the  German captain, "you are. my prisoner!" By this time the German officer had been able to obtain.a glance  at the English trench and it is thought  that, although the original intention  was to surrender, the German, seeing  that the opposing numbers were so  few, altered his mind, and gave a  signal to his men on the field. These  immediately began to push forward  but the English subaltern, .upon being  threatened by a gesture from the Ger:  man officer, quickly realized the  situation, and shot him dead with his  revolver. ���������  Will be Kept Strictly Neutral  Stringent orders, have been issued  to preserve neutrality throughout the  Panama canal zone. Hereafter, no.information will be given to anyone  relative to the cargoes carried by the  ships using the waterway and entering  the  terminal- ports.  These orders "have resulted partly  from President ��������� Wilson's recent neutrality proclamation, ana partly from  the efforts of local British diplomatic  and consular agents to learn what  ships carried coal arid other probable  contraband through the canal for possible transfer at sea to German warships. ��������� ���������  Navy and army officers,, stationed  in the canal zone, also have been cautioned not to give out information.  The Moderate Drinker  That alcohol shortens life is abundantly proved by the records of-life-  insurance companies. These tell us  that a young man t sound health at  tl.e age of twenty who is a total abstainer, and who remains a total abstainer, has a prospect of life of 45.6  years, and lives to the average age  of G5.7 years. If he is a tippler, or  moderate drinker, his prospect of life  .is 31.9 years, and he liv^s to the average of 51.9 years instead of 65.6  years. Ho may never get drunk  once, but the price he will pay for  being a.-temperate or moderate drinker is to lose 13.75 years of his life.  Atout  the  time   the  average  man  learns how to live' he quits the game.  W. N. U. 1031  Belgian Mother and German Empress  ��������� One of the Belgian ' newspapers  published recently the following open  letter to the German Empress, signed "A Belgian mother."  "Madame, I read in the newspapers  that.your son Joachim has returned  to Berlin wounded, that'you went out  to meet him, and * * *��������� that you  regarded with priue the Iron Cross  pinned on his breast, i also,- madame,  nave a sou- at tho war. He was  wounded, as yours was. . But he has  not been brought back to me. I have  not been able to take him in. I have  even spent three weeks praying to  God for him, not knowing whether he  lives. He has not fought, thank God,  under the same colors as your son.  But, as wife and mother, I can understand the joy you must have felt at  seeing your son again ulivc.  ' 'I feel no bitterness against your  soldiers for having wounded my son  on the battlefield. It is the fortune  of war, but I reflect that it is'in my  poor Bolgium that. your son has  fought, and, without doubt, held command. It is here, with an armed  horde devoted io- rapine, to murder,  to the uttermost length of the most  bestial horrors, that lie has earned  his Iron Cross.  "Therefore, madame, did you feel  so proud on seeing him as you are:  said to have felt? Did no afterthought trouble you? And, unless  you were unaware of the orgy of the  beasts of .hell in our country, among  which Prince Joachim has fought and  commanded, did you assure yourself  that that''Iron Cross bore no stain,  that it was in honor 'of a soldier's  deeds and could cover up no responsibility in the; crimes of which my  country has been the victim at the  hands of your people?  "Does it appear to you as likely  that a single German officer, and  your son more than any otner, can  escape before. God and before history  tho' responsibility for a joint work  ) which has been consummated lor  several weeks, methodically and without mercy, in all parts of my country  at onCe?  "This Cross, then, ought ��������� it not to  inspire you with - a little terror besides the pride which the newspapers  credit you with?  "If delicacy, sweetness and sacred  pity.-.remain the moral adornment of  our sex in all the regions whore  Christian civilization has left its  stamp, every woman's heart ought to  be doubly horrified that human hands  could perpetrate .the desolation and  barbarism with which a country like  mine has been filled, and that the em-  .blern of the Christ can find itself in  such a position as lying as a reward  on the breasts-of those" who remain  responsible'-for it before conscience  and before humanity.  "I do not envy you your pride madame, face to face with your son  fresh come from the ravaged regions  of Vise and Dinant, of Aerschot, of  Louvain, or Termonde, _ wounded,  which'is nothing, bufdec'orated with  the Iron Cross, which is an ironic  sacrilege and a profanation worthy of  supreme punishment.  "No, I envy you nothing. And even  in the midst of our tears, which we  shall dry, and our ruins, which we  shall restore, one day, I bless God,  that, those of us who have soldier son's  can clasp them in our' arms in the  certain knowledge that they are soldiers and not assassins."  SEEK JO INFLUENCE CANADA  Circulars Are  Being  Received  Giving  Highly  Coiired   German  Versio..  Information -recr'.ve/. in Ottawa  points to the operations of a German  publicity'organization' designed to influence public opinion in . Canada.  Copies of circulars posted in Italy and  I sent to Montreal were forwarded by  the  Bureau tier Deutschen,  Berlin.  What purports to be quotations of  correspondence between Russia and  Germany immediately before the war  is given. It is' alleged, for instance,  that on July 29 the, chief of the Russian General Staff gave his word of  honor that reserves would not be  called to~the colors. This is characterized as a "wilful attempt to deceive our government." The Russian  Emperor is further, alleged to have  pledged that "during the negotiations with Austria- my troops shall  undertake no provoking, action, ' to  which' I plight my faith." -  In another paragraph it is claimed  that Germany, anxious to.secure  British neutrality, offered a guarantee that Germany would not demand  an inch of French-European territory.  The general trend of the circular is  that against its will Germany was  "forced" into-the war. .   ���������  "The Belgians,' Jiowever, are charged- with stripping,, robbing and torturing wounded Germans, sawing off  their legs, gouging out their eyes and  committing all sorts of atrocities.  Louvain people, it is asserted, attacked Germany's supply columns  "and naturally caused strong measures of punishment."  SHRINKAGE  IN  BULLION  Enemy   Prostrated   Themselves  ���������The following account of the capture of a party, of German cavalrymen is to hand:  A sergeant in a French cuirassier  regiment, followed by two men, was  riding along the edge .of a wood,  when, to his amazement,,he saw a  German captain, two.officers, and ten  men come out of it, holding their  hands up in token of surrender. The  sergeant, having had some experience  of the treacherous ruses which were  habitually employed by. the-enemy,  ordered his men to aim at.the party,  and himself advanced -revolver in  hand.  "What do you .want me to.do?" the  captain called out, speaking -in excellent French. "Do you want me to  throw down my arms?"  "Yes, throw down your'arms."'  Whereupon the German officer,  imitated by his companions, threw his  sabre and revolver far away from  him. The sergeant ' still remained  suspicious, and continued his menacing-attitude.  "Ah," said the captain, "would you  like me to dismount and lie down en  the:ground?" "Yes, lie down on the  ground," said the captain first, and  afterwards all the other German  cavalrymen, dismounting from their  horses, placed themselves in that  humble posture.  The- three cuirassiers- were approaching to take the group of prisoners, when other German saralry  (theso latter dismounted 'and already  without weapons) came out of the  wood in little bands and joined their  comrades. Thus it was that the three  cuirassiers brought back to' their delighted lieutenant, one captain, t>vo  officers, and about 50 Uhlans, on  whom were found 800 to 900 cartridges: For this act the sergeant was  decorated.  It afterwards transpired that the  captain in command of the German  party was Captain V. Radowitz, con  of the former German ambassador in  Madrid.  The. German Losses  How long tne German people can  bear upunuorthe piiycliologicai strain  of the terribie ��������� losses Uiey are sustaining, both on sea and on .land,, is  one os. the most'interesting questions  pertaining to the. war. We know that  ���������muuiuities of Germans in public and  private have said time tney will fight  io the last niaii���������but that is mere  rhetoric. No. nation can do that. The  leeung of uiose who stay at home is  Ijquuu to be a: .factor of enormous  importance in deciding the length.of  tne conrlicc, for they nave not ine.re-  liof of being at_ the front.  At��������� lirer tne casualty-lists worepub-  IiHlied-in full. Now they are so tremendous' that they can -. be printed  uiily in abridged form, the local names  appearing. Every aay the Berlin  Tageblatt prints a list ox the well-  known dead/ architects, doctors, lawyers,' professors, teachers, members  of tne aristocracy, government; officials in every walk of.life;..and;the list  is staggering. On a" single day a well  known bank announced the deaths of  twenty-three employees. The Ninety-  First Infantry regiment reported ihe-  loss of no less than 12 officers killed  and 16 wounded, together with'" 25-1  men -killed,' 1,202 wounded and 314  missing in 17 days' fighting in Belgium  and France. Other regiments have  suffered worse, in shorter time; but  as the casualty lists are published a  mouth after the period covered, the  worst is yet to come.  A private letter from Munich tells  not only of the..growing anxiety of  the public over the long delay in ending the battle of the Aisne, which.  Major .Moraht, the military critic; of  the Tageblatt, has admitted, but  speaks of the innumerable hospitals^  springing up everywhere like mushrooms, and overcrowded the instant  they are opened. How long can a  nation like Germany endure this?���������  New York Evening Post.  It is Now Thought That Germans Are  Busy Carrying. Gold Out of  England  A distinct shrinkage is' visible in  the amount of 'traceable goid' in -England, writes the London Chronicle. It  is suggested that a great deal of  missing gold is in the hands of Germans or has been smuggled abroad  by' German agents or by neutrals in  the employ of Germans.  ������������������Germans in business iu England  have the same opportunity as Englishmen qf getting gold. In view of  the importance "which gold plays in  the Avar, a German who collects English gold is rendering his country very  valuable help, even if he only locks  it up in his safe. Possibly this is  being extensively done-as part of a  deliberate scheme.        ��������� .  There is the still more ..ominous  possibility that the gold'-' thus taken  from circulation is being secretly  taicen away from the country to Germany. The export of a'large'quan-  j tity of gold in one consignment v/ould,  of couvsc, bo noted and checked, out  at present there is nothing to pre-'  vent individuals .from , smuggling  away several hundred pounds' worth  "of gold concealed about their persons  or in their luggage. .  .Hundreds of German women .are  leaving the country, and there are  thousands of subjects . of neutral  countries travelling frdni England to  Holland, Denmark,- Sweden and-elsewhere.   Many may be German agents..  The facts are so serious that drastic  action is nece&jary. Everyone should  be, searched for gold belzve .leaving  England. '      '" ���������-'.  During the past three months the  net receipts'" of gold from abroad officially recorded have amounted to  as much as thirty millions sterling.  Moreover, we have notes equivalent to  another thirty and'a quarter millions  of gold,'; and- Bank of ��������� England notes  equivalent to about another five millions. Theso notes should-obviously  diminish the _ circulation of gold  throughout the'country by taking its  place and driving it back to���������the Bank  of England. Yet the stock of gold at  the Bank of England ��������� has not. increased by 'more than the amount  received from abroad.    '  The increased government . expenditure, which now . amount ,to  nearly a million- a day,' doss not ac-  count"for the enormous increase in  circulation, for it is offset by the  diminished requirements of currency  in other quarters..  Hence the belief that money is to  some extent being hoarded; that our  enemies are operating against us in  the manner;indicated.

Steel Barrels a Saving to the Farmer  Lubricating-oils for tractors, stationary engines and farm machinery can  now be purchased in steel containers.  The Imperial Oil Company, Limited,  has been supplying the trade for some  time with these new packages and is  furnishing its leading grades of .lub-  ri2ating oils in steel barrels and halt'  barrels.  This will be welcome news to tractor owners, farmers and other users  of. lubricating oils., The amount of  oiLlost in leakage from wooden barrels is larger than is generally recognized. Oil stored over the winter in  wooden barrels not only leaks, but is  apt to gather dirt and grit,' so tha.t  by -spring it is spoiled for most purposes.- ���������  The new. steel barrel saves fully  25% in loss due to leakage, and is also  a much more ' convenient, container.  Each barrel is'supplied with a faucet,  which' provides a clean and economical method of handling the oil.. The  new container can be refilled indefinitely and serves as a convenient storage tank.   ;  Gasoline and coal oil have long been  handled exclusively'.in metal packages.  Now that lubricating oils as well are  being supplied in steel barrels', it  seems' likely that wooden barrels will  sooi. be a relic of the past.     . /   .

He stays where he is  commanded. He shoots magnificently, extraordinarily well. After, we had  broken through the French position  on the Belgian frontier, it was General  French's army that stayed the retreat.  Our efforts to drive, the English back  wore in vain. The British are a  strong people, athle'tic and well developed. So we decided to shoot them  down. We ordered our best shots to  tackle them, but the resirfr was riot in  our favor. Then we got-'all our.artillery that could be spared against  tiiem, and swept the English positions  with a rain of shells; but how can 1  describe our astonishment? Beyond  the shell swept zone:we saw English  soldiers' heads moving, and they began to use their rifles again as soon as  tne coast was clear.

Speaker bays Newspapers Should-ie^  vestigate Merits of Medicines Before   Barring   Advertisements  That'an organized attempt has bcea,  made to blacken the reputation of tha  popular family remedies of this country, and    to mislead tho    newspaper  publishers  into  rejecting   the  advertising ' of   such medicines,    was th������  charge made  by Carl J.  Balliett,-. ofl  Buffalo, N.Y., at tho convention of. the  Advertising Affiliation at Detroit.   '  Mr. Ballictt is a director, of tho Proprietary, Association of America which,  includes in its membership, two hundred  llrms' which make  the  popular"  prepared  medicines of America.-  Mr.' Ballictt pointed out that it*it  the duty of the newspaper publisher  to refuse the advertising of any fakeor  fraudulent medicine, just.as it is hie  duty to refuse any fake or fraudulent  advertising, but it is not right to shut  down on all. medical advertising because there have' boen some fakerst  any more than it would be right tc  refuse -to publish all department store  advertising becauso certain stores  have made a practice of' lying about  ;bargain sales.  Disease and deatli are mysteries.!  People'who aro perfectly ��������� well'are ���������  skeptical. They- laugh at the time-  worn patent medicine joke, just -ae  they- laugh again' and- again over the  many variations of the operation joke  ���������"The operation was a-success but  the patient died."- This so -called nu-  mor has , perhaps hurt the medicine  business with well 'people, but when,  .the hitherto heal'thy man feels a severe i pain or illness, he immediately  wants a medicine, and will bless Ihe  cure whether it be at the hands' of a  regular doctor, a homeopath, an osteopath, a Christian Scientist or patent "  medicine. There is nothing more  deadly than ;. disease; nothing more  honorablo than to euro it.'  Mr. Balliett refuted.the "idea sought  to be spread about that patent medicines are' unpopular by'showing .that *  from 1900 to 1912 the amount of prepared medicines consumed in America  increased from $100,000,000 to $160,-  000,000 annually. He showed that, although the American Medical Association is trying as an organization 'tc  exterminate so called patent-medicines, the family doctor,, individually,  is not fighting them but" prescribing  them. He estimated that ..40%; of the  prescriptions written by doctors today  include proprietary medicines.  . The writings of Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, he said, have also aimed to destroy confidence in proprietary medicines; but that ..Dr. Wiley's ideas,are  not infallible is shown by cases.where  his analyses were entirely wrong. Mr.  Balliett mentioned a case where, with  all the power' of the government, ho  fought a preparation as being dangerous ,to health, and was ingloriously  walloped.'  There has been spread the. idea that  a clever faker can mix a few useless  Ingredients and, by smart advertising,  sell tons of it and win sudden wealth;  whereas, as a matter of fact, the medicine business is notoriously difficult,  and where there has been one success  at it, there have been a hundred failures. Any medicine which has no  merit cannot live, because persons .  who are duped into buying it once <  will not buy it again, and the profit'  from advertising a medicine can only  come from repeat sales to the same,  satisfied people. Therefore,- any medicine which has been on the market  for a number of years, and is still  advertised, must have merit behind it  to account for its success.  In conclusion Mr. Balliett declared  that no neVspaper is doing, justice to  its readers.in the matter of medical  or other advertising, unless-it investigates, not only the wording of-the advertisement offered for publication,  but the merits of the article advertised.-: He pointed out that the few  newspapers who have been deluded  into the policy of'barring out medical  advertising have adopted this general  policy, rather than ,to form an investigation bureau of this kind which  could, in a constructive aad useful effort, investigate and decide what is  a good product "and what is a fraud/  in.not only themedicine business, but  in every other business which advertises its wares to the public..     r  The audience seemed to agree with.  Mr. Balliett's ideas on the subject and  the chairman decided the question at  issue in his favor. ...  "The Empire has not . forgotten  Paardeberg,",states an English newspaper referring to the "'.. Canadian  force.' "It has not forgotten* Strath-  cona's Horse ,and Co.ojel Steele and  Colonel Otterj/and the' hard bitten  horsemen of the prairie, the. keen,  strenuous, tough, tenacious infantry--  men, will give an account of. themselves of which the old land will be  proud.

An Indian Gift to the Patriotic Fund  The patriotic spirit of the Indians  of Western Canada Is -described in an  interesting, letter which Mr. W. B.  Baker,, secretary of the Canadian  Pacific Railway, has received from a  friend, and from which the following  is an-extract: ���������       ��������� /  "Mr. Graham, inspector of Indian  .agencies for Southern Saskatchewan,  has, through his ability and energy  done much to make the File Hills Indian Agency one of the most progressive in Canada.'' He initiated a colony  upon which he placed and is still  placing graduates from Indian Industrial Schools. This colony has been  quite a successful venture and the  young Indians settled there are doing  very .well. Some grow as many as  from eight to ten thousands bushels  .of grain per year'and all (there are  over thirty families) are practically  out of deht. Well, the people being  much alive to the war news, asked so  [many questions that Mr. Graham decided to hold a meeting of the Colony,  which was done. I was, much to my  delight, in good enough shape to go  with' the.party and wo travelled thither- in beautifully 'decorated cars. I  brought along a gramophone and  many patriotic records. We played the  national airs of Great Britain, France  ���������and Russia, and "It's a Long, Long  Way to.Tipperary" came in for.a great  deal of praise. Mr. Graham addressed  them from behind a table upon which  was spread the ^TJnion Jack, and explained the causes and progress of the  war, lucidly and fully, also the work  of the Patriotic Fund and Red Cross  Society, ,A committee was at once  formed and all of these young Indians  quite voluntarily offered to sell so  many bushels each of wheat and oats.  They��������� were "most, enthusiastic and  gave cheer after-cheer for the kings  of the different allied nations, our  own beloved sovereign coming in for  .very loud applause. A few days afterwards Mr. Graham received $500,  the result of the sale of grain promised. The young Indian women at  once took up Red Cross work���������knitting, etc., in a very enthusiastic way.  Two of the boys.-���������Aleck Moore and  Ed. Swanson���������have joined the second  contingent. They are graduates of  the Brandon. Indian Schgol and are  dead shots. Among the contributors  of the collection to the Patriotic fund,  which amounted to $502.10, were  Frank Dumont, a nephew of Gabriel  Dumont of Riel Rebelion fame,.and  his two sons."  igestion  Arising From Contipation, Cured and  Regular Habits Established by Dr.  ...   Chase's  Kidney-Liver  Pills  In the western provinces, where so  many thousands live far from doctors  and drug stores, very many rely on  Dr. Chase's   medicines    to   cure disease    and     maintain     health     and  strength.   This letter gives some idea  oJ.' what perfect control   Dr. Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills exert over the most  common ills of life.  Mrs. H. K. Hewer, farmer's wife,  Eastbur'g, Alta., writes: "For about  ten years 1 suffered from constipation, indigestion, headache and languid feelings. Treatment from two  or three doctors afforded only temporary relief, so I turned to Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, and with  most satisfactory results. Headaches  have disappeared, regular habits established, and general health very  much better.

In What^Splrit  There is something Infinitely moving and inspiring in the simple unselfishness with which thousands of  the'poor and downtroden nave rallied to the cry of national liberty, and  shown themselves prepared to give  their all to a country which, in the  past, has given so little to them. Inspiring, too, is-the readiness of the  well to do, who in peace time, have  taken their ease at the expense of  others,,to risk the loss of lives which  have been so full of comfort and happiness, and to embrace with ardor the  agonies of war. For the soldiers, rich  and poor alike, there is no question of  diplomacy "or finance; they believe  that the principle of freedom is in  danger, and they would die rather  than acquiesce in the loss of freedom.  It is not for us to discuss their political judgment; It is for us to acknowledge and reverence their unselfish  courage. The bitter cry of it all is that  one tithe of the same spirit shown in  peace could make England a happy  and healthy nation. Every day of the  year there are, on an average, more  than 500 casualties in mine, factory,  and workshop. Who knows or cares?  Far vaster than that number, and far  vaster than the casualty list of any  war, is the tale of deaths and injuries and diseases spree.. through the  community .by overcrowding and underpaying, by long hours and bad food,  by destitution and prostitution.

Ontario  Say Germans Alone Use "Dum-Dums"  The war office has issued a statement denying German allegations that  the British troops have used "dumdums" or soft nosed bullets, but  maintaining that these kinds of missiles have been used by the Germans.  The statement describes the British  and German service ammunition as  very similar, the bullets being pointed  with steel and tho envelope coated  with cupro-nicitel, covering the core  except at the base," and conforming  with the provisions of the Hague convention.  In tho opinion of Sir Victor Hors-  ley, a well known surgeon, this bullet  is "probably the most humane projectile yet devised," for the reason that  "the long,- solid point, consisting almost entirely of a hard nickel sheath,  precludes as far as possible any tendency toward deformation of shape,  while the strength of the sheath prevents the bullet breaking up into fragments, except in very exceptional circumstances."  The statement ends: "There is,  however, clear evidence that Germany  has not confined herself solely to '.he  use of this unobjectionable ammunition. Her troops in both Togoland  and France have been proved to hav������  used bullets with a soft core and a  hard thin envelope not entirely covering the core, which type of bullet is  expanding and is expressly prohibited  by The Hague convention."

Perhaps the Portuguese did ^  not know the value of the territory, "  and certainly Charles did not, for a  few years later ho leased Bombay to  the East India Company for $50 a  year!  There is no more effective vermifuge on the market than Miller's  Worm Powders. They will not only  clear the stomach and bowels of  worms, but will prove a very serviceable medicine for children in regulating the infantile system and maintaining it in a healthy condition. There  is nothing in their composition that  will injure the most delicate stomach  when directions are followed, and they  can be given to children in the full  -assurance that they will utterly destroy all worms.

WISt AND OTHLRWISE  FRIDAY, JANUARY 29,   1915'  The statement submitted to the  provincial legislature last Friday  shows a deficit of more than $5,000,-  000, the revenue being S10;479,253  and .the expenditure 815,971,877.  In the preceding twelve months the  deficit approximated 83,000,000,  and, assuming that the receipts and  expenditures for the current year  are substantially cloBe to the estimates passed last winter, a similar  hiatus will be disclosed' when the  financial statement is submitted  next January. Thus the deficit for  the last three years, including the  year- now almost ended, may be  'estimated at SIO.000,090'.

Aerop ane Darts  The   most extraordinary weapon  in the present war is   the  aeroplone  dart, a French invention   that-both  French and   German   aviators'have  used with deadly effect.   According  to a writer in Field, tbe>French dart  is about 4f inches long,  and   looks  something  like   a    fountain   pen.  It is stamped out or a steel rod; the  tip is either pointed like a bullet or  sharpened, and   behind   it the steel  rod isfeduced to  the dimensions of  a thick, wire.the extremity of which  is furnished   with what may be described   as   a  steel   feathering that  acts like the feathers of an arrow and  keeps the dart  pointed   downward.  As   its   weight in   only about two  thirds   of  an   ounce,   an  ordinary  military aeroplane, which can   support over 550 pounds of ballast, can  carry no less   than    12,5000   darts.  They are tied   in bundles  of about  two   hundred  each, and suspended  from   the   bottom of the aeroplane,  from which the aviator can  release  them by pulling a cord.   When one  of   them   falls   on   a   man from a  height   of   650   feet   or   more   it  kills or wounds him   as surely as a  bullet fired from a rifles.  aS  I  An Electric Battleship  The United States is the  first nation to use electricity in  place of  steam to propel a battleship.   That  will   be the   motive  power on the  dreadnought   California���������where   it  will be used according to a method  that has been thoroughly tested and  perfected on the big 19,000 ton collier.  Jupiter,   where it has proved  most  successful.    The   advantages  are many.    As the speed of a vessel  run by electricty can be  instantly  chauged, the dangerous "racing" of  the propellers in heavy seas can   be I  prevented. Then, an electric power  plant occupies far less space and  vyeighs less than marine engines  that producean equal amount of energy. Finally, the cost of maintv-  nanee and repairs is much less, and  there is a great saving in coal. The  new dreadnought will probably  have two plants; if one geta^ out of  order, the ship can still proceed with  ���������the other.  :OUR, ACID STOMACHS,  GASES OS INDIGESTION  Each "Pape's Diapepsin" digests 3000  grains food, ending ail stomach  misery in-five minutes.

The waiter who was commissioned  to bring in their meals from one of  the Brussels hotels waxed indignant  over the destruction the German officers did among the pictures and old  furniture. The officers would only  dine at the palace. The order would  'be to'serve dinner for fifty officers  at eight and for ten servants at ton.  This went on for three days just after tho occupation of Brussels.  On the third day dinner. was ordered for 6.30 and was accordingly  semt, but when the waiters arrived  no officers were to be seen, but the  place was in a terrible state.  The officers seem to have received  marching orders hurriedly, but before  leaving .the waiter said they cut the  paintings with knives, shot holes in  the furniture and tore great 'holes  in the carpets.  They reported they had been furnished with a regular calendar of  dates, and were due to arrive in London on a specified day, which appointment  they would  certainly  keep.  But the date has now passed, and  it is feared that they will incur royal  displeasure for not being up to date.  The New Submarines  Armament is to be deplored, but no  one is asserting that one .nation can  disarm while the powers about it con-  .uiuo io build dreadnought.; and organize now army corps. Therefore,  although our military requirements,  through the '-very influence of geographical location, are not so great as  those of the other powerful nations,  it is still essential that whatever of  i.: nuy and navy we do have should  be -efficient.  /fo this end tho ! ew submarine has  boon designed. It is ���������over twice as  large as any now in use in the war,  and it has a greater speed. In addi-  rlori, it is fitted with a powerful wireless apparatus, and with the new  American device which enables a vessel of this typo to stay under water  safely for a longer period than those  of the other nations. The important  part that tho submarine has played  in the present conflict shows what an  importance the little vessels of destruction may have in any conflict of  the future. The American navy can  perfect the submarine at a cost far  less than that entailed by the construction of the super-dreadnoughts,  and the new type of submarine is a  decidedly forward step towards the  ends of boui economy and efficiency.  ���������Boston Advertiser.'

The  Camerous were a unit in the First  Brigade, and on September 14 the  Germans attacked tho brigade, which  had tho Camerons and tho Coldstream Guards and the Scots Guards  on their flanks. -Ac one time the  flanks seemed to be getting into a  tight corner, and the Camerons resorted to the bayonet. "We had to  cover about 200 yards or so," he says,  "and the German machine guns were  on us, hut we kept at it and they scattered. The Prussian Guards were  amongst the enemy's forces at this  point, and they too preferred flight  to meeting the  bare steel."

HE AS A GHOST  Pale or Sallow Cheeks One  ol  the  First  Signs of Anaemia  Pale and sallow, cheeks, with blanched lips and gums, and dark circles Under the eyes, are the first signs -that  anaemia has begun its deadly progress. This first warning is followed  by great weariness and breathlcssness  after any exertion. You grow melancholy, have frequent headaches,  ..vrake in the morning feeling tired.  You become morbid and nervous,  starting at the slightest noise, and  your heart palpitates violently oven  on going upstairs. Most girls from  ourceen to twenty suffer from anaemia.

The new, rich blood that cures ari-  ismia and gives new health and  strength is readily created by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. That is why these  pills have cured moro cases of blood-  lessness and blood disorders than any  other medicine. They have made  thousands of girls and women strong,  well and rosy, with bright eyes and  now energy, just because they nourish  tho body with the new, rich, red blood  of health. Here is a typical 'instance.  Miss Laura Dempsey, Auburn, N.Y.,  says: "For several months I was in a  very bad state of health, with many  of the symptoms that accompany anaemia. I was pale and bloodless, had  terrible headaches, would be breathless at the least exertion. Having tried  a number of medicines without relief  I naturally became discouraged and  began to fear that I was doomed to  .continued illness. At this stage a  friend who had herself been benefitted  by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills urged  me to try them. I did so and thanks  to the pills I am now enjoying the  best of^health, and feel that I cannot  recommend this splendid medicine  too highly."  Other weak and ailing girls can also  obtain new health and strength  through the use of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.

The great  man is of a most economical habit,  and it is difficult for him to talk for  any great length of time without  touching upon .the subject of economy.  Sure enough, he suddenly invited attention to the suit of clothes he was  wearing.  "I have never believed," said he,  opening his coat, the better.to display-  the details of the suit, "in paying  fancy prices for cut to measure garments. Now, here is a suit for which  I paid eight dollars and ninety-eight  cents. Appearances, are very deceptive.

A)  R^������4M*������MUI  VOLUNTEERS WHO KNOW WHAT THEY  FIGHT FOR  Present Policy of the Allies is to Bide their tinae while the Enemy  Becomes Exhausted in Offensive Tactics���������Allies will  : Take Offensive Measures in the Spring  Details are now permitted to be pub:  lished oO the new-armies comprising  the two'million men Lord Kitchener  proposes to throw into the field at the  decisive moment some tinie next year.  The present policy of the allies is to  bide their time, let the enemy exhaust  himself so far as he may by maintaining his offensive in France and Flanders far from his base,' and then, when^  . the attack has taken its full toll and  winter  and  disease have  done  their  Bhare to push a vigorous offensive until not a German soldier remains on  the left bank of the Rhine. All this  ��������� pre-supposes that the-present line,of  defence, in France and Flanders will  ' be  maintained   practically  unbroken.  Military experts say that the French  "', armies, with the co-operation of'Brfit-  1 ish Imporial Troops, can guard'that.  So long as the Royal Navy remains in  command of the narrow seas and bottles up the German high sea fleet in  the Elbe or at Wilhelmshaven,    just  that  long  reinforcements   of trained  men can be sent at any time at very  short notice  out of England' to the  point where needed. Tho general, pub-  Hi would possibly be agreeably surprised did they know just now- many  trained and equipped men of all arms  are at the present moment available  . at British depots, but are being held  back  simply  because   the    situation  does not warrant their immediate use  nor the added difficulties of attending  to the comfort and well teing of many  thousand more troops at the front.  The last three months have witness-  . ed an unparalelled expansion of .the  British army.    Many    more    regular  divisions  have    been organized than  anyone dreamed    of before the'war.  The territorial units have in most  .'cases, been duplicated and in some  "triplicated.   The.special reserve have  been similarly  expanded' and almost  all these units,    old  and new, have  been" brought up to war establishment.  Lastly, four new armies, each of six  divisions  or' three army corps, have  been organized   and are in process of  training, while  the Dominions    have  not   been ��������� backward in emulating the  activity of the mother country and India is    also preparing to send army  after army to' Britain's aid.   'Britain  was    found   unprepared   for war on  land.   The   public   had been told for  years that the navy guaranteed their  safety, and the .last thing    oven the  alarmist   figured   on,   was    that she  would shortly be employing enormous  masses   of   troops   on the continent  alongside of and opposed to the great  ' continental conscription armies.  The outstanding difficulty   is   that  the two million men Britain may expect   to   have in the field' before the  close of next year    are    volunteers,  every mother's son of them, and fight  not from compulsion but    by choice  and with a very definite idea of what  they are fighting for.   The war office  was   therefore   handicapped   at   the  start by a total lack of organization  required for operations on so gigantic  a scale, and also lack of arms, ammunition and equipment   of all kinds.  What was available was    the highly  Daring Feats of Airmen  trained expeditionary force' of 170,000  men and this was flung into the gap  to hold the gate until the great raw  mass could be moulded into trained  army corps. Every factory in Britain  was working day and' night turning  out equipment' and in the space of  three months much of the ground lost  through unpreparedness has been  won back. Most people know how  well the special reserve and the 10-  serve regiments of cavalry which still  average 2,000 men each, are maintaining the strength of the expeditionary  force. Many, also know that the territorials, after three months' hard  training, have become efficient troops  and that they not only provide a  large force^ of mobile divisions for  homo defence, but have relieved the  regulars for many purposes abroad  and like the London Scottish- have  taken their turn in the Belgium  trenches. But few people know anything about the armies, of recent  creation.  Army orders for September and October described . the organization on  broad lines. The 10th to . the 14th  divisions the second,new army; the  21st to the 26th"divisions the third  new army; and the 27th to the 32nd  divisions came up by selection from  the duplicate reserve battalions, form  tho fourth new army. The new battalions are raised as additional battalions of the' line infantry and 'are  known as service battalions. The recruits are clothed and equipped at the  depots, and thence sent to training  centres, -where they are Incorporated  as far as possible ,in regiments belonging to the county from .which the  recruits are .drawn. The territorial  connection is thus preserved. The  recruits are much older than the boys  who usually join the army and their  physique is decidedly superior. There  has been almost no sickness. They,  come from all classes. The gentleman  and the coal heaver stand side by  Bide in the ranks. The conduct and  spirit of the :hen :s~all that can be  desired, there being very little crime  and wonderful keenness of all ranks.  The officers live among the men and  share all their labors." The men have  enlisted to "fight and are tigers to  .work." All are pulling together for the  one great object.  All this has .not bem brought about  without .some hardships and difficulties to be overcome. But the first new  army, under General Archibald Hunter at Aldershot has now passed suc-  cessfuly that stage. The men of the  new armies do not grumble because  they know the immense difficulties  which beset Lord Kitchener when he  took office, and every discomfort is  taken with the utmost good humor  The excellence of the material, the  fine quality "and the head work of  officers' and of the N.C.O.'s, the good  progress of training and cheerful  spirit of emulation which exists  ���������throughout the training centres, give  assurance that in due time these first  four of the new armies will not le  dilatory to stand behind the splendid  British regulars now in France.  Information Was Wrong  Kaiser's   Spies   Shot   For   Misleading  Him About British j  A German officer interned with  some other prisoners iu Ireland has  given to the English officer in charge  of the prisoners some information  which throw:: an interesting light on  the Germans' view of the results of  their elaborate system of espionage.  According to the German officer, it  was fully believed at- German headquarters that as soon as the British  mobilization was ordered, the transport workers would strike. This information- was conveyed to the German headquarters staff three weeks  before the outbreak of the'war, and  was fully /relied on. According to  the German officer, the information  came from a spy who was supposed  to* be closely in touch with working-  i lass organisations in Britain.  This spy was in Berlin when war  ��������� was declared, and later, when his information proved to be false, was  arrested. A similar fate has also  overtaken several other spies, who  had evidently been manufacturing information for which they were very  highly paid. Some of these men, according to the German officer, have  been shot. '  Most definite, and apparently accurate, information kept reaching  German military headquarters, up to  the outbreak of the war, concerning  recruiting possibilities in Britain in  the event of war.   .  All this information, gleaned from  every part of England, Ireland, Scot'  land and Wales, confirmed the German : military authorities of the belief that 400,000 would be the limit  of Britain's recruiting power. It was  belie.ved that when no more voluntary recruits could be obtained in  Britain, conscription would have to  be.-resorted to, and.this would lead  to political divisions and break up  all chance of political unity. A general election, fought on the question  of conscription, was to be one of the  events which would lead to Britaiu's  downfall somewhere about October  or November.  Perhaps the biggest and most un-  pleasant surprise that awaited the  Kaiser and his advisors at the outbreak of the war was the immediate  arrest in Britain of certain spies,  which disclosed the hitherto unsuspected fact to their masters that the  business on which these men had  been engaged ��������� in England was fully  known to the British government.  With tho exception -of a few highly  ���������placed personages, from which the  Germans probably received some  trustworthy information, every German spy was loiDwn to Scotland  Yard, as was also, most probably,  the character of the information he  was giving and, therefore,- he was  allowed to give it to his government.  450 French Defy 10,000 Germans ���������  For five days the little fort of  Troyon, with its garrison of 450 men,  defied 10,000 Germans on the Meuse.  After two days' bombardment the  enemy tried to carry the fort. They  got within ten yards of it, but fell in  such numbers that they had to withdraw. The next day they summoned  the garrison to surrender. "Never!"  was the reply. "Then we shall shell  you with our heavy guns until you  and your fort are but a heap of cinders." They almost had time to carry  out their threat before relief came.  When the siege was raised practically  nothing.was left of the fort, while over  half of Ifa defenders had been burled  alive in the ruins. The captain in  command was wounded in twenty-  eight places, and his lieutenant had a  leg blown off. .Every regiment that  passes now has orders to halt and to  render the garrison military honors in  recognition of their unparalleled  heroism.  A Dutch lieutenant writes of the interned Britishers in Holland to his relatives in London: "In our camp we  have got 1,000 British marines from  Antwerp. They came on Saturday  morning. On Saturday evening  everything was ready to receive them  ���������tents with straw coverings, even 20  footballs. I suppose I shall stay with  the boys until the end of the year, so  I shall want my boxing gloves. I am  sure they will appreciate thera, also  some English tobacco."  Aviators    of Allies  Have  Repeatedly  Proved Superiority Over the  Germans  "Tho tactics' adopts t for dealing  with hostile aerial craft are to attack them instantly with one or more  British machines. This has been so  far successful that.in five cases German pilots or.observers have been  shot in the air ai-d their machines  brought' to" tho ground. Something in  the direction of the mastery of the  air has already been done."  War in the air, abou;' which we  have talked for some time past, is a  very real thing today, contained in the  high tribute General French pays to  the work of the Royal Flying Corps,  and the praise of General Joffre," who  describes the corps as a "perfect organization," without feeling proud 'of  the part which British aviators, by  their daring, skill and enterprise, are  playing in the great war. Nothing is  loo hazardous for them to attempt,  and they wage aerial warfare with a  keenness which has established for  them a' great superiority over the  Germans.  A brilliant instance is that of Lieutenant Spratt, one of the Hendon aviators, whose services were accepted  shortly after the outbreak of hostilities, and whose feat has brought distinction, to the International Corres;  pondence School\ of which ha Is* a  successful student.  Sighting a.German aviator at Montmorency, Lieutenant Spratt promptly  went up in pursuit. Soaring like a  hawk above his prey. Spratt made it  known to the German, whose name  was Heisden, that he had his gun  trained on him. The German signalled  that he would surrender, and planed  downwards. When he was about a  hundred" feet from the ground, however, he tried to escape, but Lieutenant Spratt did not hesitate for a moment. He simply dropped .on the  enemy from the height of a hundred  feet, sustaining injuries himself, but  securing his prisoner and smashing  tho German machine.  It is a graphic story, too, which  comes from Aisne. A German aeroplane, flying high, visited the British  iines with ihe object of reconnoitering.  As the machine hovered overhead,  well out of the line of fire, a British  aviator shot up to the attack. The  German sar/ his adversary, and attempted to attack from above.. Shots  were fired, but they missed their  mark. Steadily the British aviator  mounted, endeavoring to get above  the German, "shots being constantly  exchanged as the two machines, looking exceecingly like great birds in  combat, manoeuvred swiftly afounu  one another. Suddenly the British  swung above. More shots were exchanged and the German machine was  seen to reel and stagger, and then'  slowly come to the ground. The  German pilot was -wounded, and once  more the British aviator had proved  his superiority and skill.  German aviators, indeed, scarcely  know how lo combat the members of  the Royal flying corps. One aviator  says that, although he has encountered several German Hying machines,  they all fled away from him.  French and Russian "aviators, too,  are covering themselves with glory,  and the story of how Captain Nesteroff  ���������one of the lu'st men in Russia to  loop the loop���������sacr'flced his life in  order to- prevent the escape of an  aerial foe, is one which must thrill the  world. Nesteroff observed two Austrian aeroplanes mpking thair way towards the Russian positions. He recognized that it was absolutely necessary to prevent these aviators carrying information regarding the Russian  positions to the Austrians.  Flying towards them, Nesteroff succeeded by skilful manoeuvring in getting so close to one of the aeroplanes  that he was able to fire his revolver  almost point blank at the pilot. The  latter was wounded, and fell with his  machine to the ground where he was  captured. As soon as he had fired,  Captain Nesteroff commenced a spiral  upward flight, and was followed by  the second Austrian.  It was impossible for Nesteroff,  however, to take any certain aim -at  the Austrian, and realizing that it was  above all else necessary to prevent  him returning to the Austrian lines  with the valuable news he had gathered, he nerved himself for a supreme  effort, and launched his aerial craft  full tilt at his foe. The machines  came together with a crash and descended to . the ground interlocked,  both aviators being killed. Nesteroff's  brilliant achievement being largely instrumental in the success of the Rus-.  sians.  IS GALLED   THE  FATHER   OF THE BRITISH NAVY  Bullet Headed Germans  The Germans are a bullet headed  race. Proof of this has been found  when the trophies of war have been  tried on English heads. In a case  mentioned by the Manchester Guardian, not one was big enough for anyone present. Though made apparently  of steel, the helmets were as light almost as a cloth cap or a straw hat,  and more comfortable than a-bowler.  Round the inside, where it touches,  was a ring of metal "leaf springs"  bound with leather, which lightly  clipped the head to keep the helmet  on without hea\ .' pressure. The brass  spike or knob was made useful as  well as ornamental. Theer were large  holes in it, which gave very good  ventilation���������much better that the pinholes that are supposed to.ventilate a  bowler.  Baron Fisher has spent Sixty Years in the Naval Service and is  Credited with being Responsible  for  the Present High  State of Efficiency of the British Fleet  ������ A popular society woman announced a "white elephant" party. Every  guest was to bring something that she  could not find any use for and yet too  good to throw away. The party would  have been a great success but for the  unlooked for developments which  broke it up. Eleven of the nineteen  women brought their husbands.  To Baron Fishor of Kilverstone today the eyes of the British empire  are turned. Britons look to him to  wipe out the memory of the South  Pacific naval engagement with a  British triumph. It vras only a few'  days after he had been called in to  take the place of First Sea Lord left  vacant by the resignation of Prince  Louis of Battenberg that the South  Pacific engagement took place, and  Germany had to be credited with the  most important. naval victory of the  war. The new Sea Lord could not  in any degree be held responsible for  this disaster, but we may be sure he  took It to heart, and that before long  he will efface its memory with a British victory should the opportunity occur. We may be equally sure that  he will not be stung by public clamour, to .attempt the impossible. He  cares little or nothing for public opinion. He knows his business, and  when the time 'comes he will prove  it to any part of the world that may  entertain  doubt  on  the  subject..  Oddly enough, while .Prince Louis  was forced to resign because he was  not of pure British ancestry, the man  whom everybody demanded to see as  his successor is only half British.  His mother was a Singalese lady of  high caste, and it is said that in  Baron Fisher's character one may see  the hardy, rugged qualities of the  Briton intermingled with the more  wily and cautious Oriental strain.  But no matter what his ancestry  might have been, there can be no  doubt that he more than any other  living man possesses the full confidence of both the navy and the general public. It was Lord Rosebery  who spoke of him as -the "Kitchener  of the navy." It. is no secret that  Kitchener is not* loved. Neither is  Fisher. He is too stern a disciplinarian, too harsh on offenders, too  stony to appeals for leniency because  a culprit happens to be a personal  friend, and he has an almost uncanny habit of knowing everything about  everybody under his command. "Confound him!" said an officer who served under him in the West Indies. "I  believe he could tell you ' the exact  number of cocktails I drink every time  I go ashore."  Baron Fisher's knowledge of - the  navy and all that pertains to it was  not acquired by "any system of espionage. He knows the fleet. because he made it; he knows the officers because he works from five  o'clock in the morning to nine o'clock  Tat night,' becauses he studies nothing  else. He entem. the navy at the  age of thirteen, and he is now seven-'  ty-three. He has spent sixty years  i:. the service, and ha.* held every  office in it from that of midshipman  to that of First Sea Lord. lie was  a   captain   at    the   bombardment  of  Alexandria, and afi.or'lIio capture ot  the city he was called upon to fomi  a- police force and maintain order.  How strict he was in this office those  who were with him have testified.  Ho shot the guilty on sight, and restored order in a few "hours. It is  Baid that some .of his personal friends,.  officers of his own ship, who were  found with loot in their possession,  were .dealt with as sternly as though  they had been enemies  in arms.  Never in his life has Baron Fisner  said a word for publication. He  could no more be interviewed than  the Sphinx. He is as silent as Kitchener. Nevertheless he has" made  occasional remarks that are remembered. For example, it was I'isher who  said that the frontiers- of Britain  should be the coasts of the enemy.  He is no believer in what is called  "humane warfare," and he illustrates  his position by saying: "When you  have to wring a chicke.iy neck all  you think about is wringing it quickly. You don't give the chicken intervals for refreshment and recuperation. It should be the same with  warfare." He 4s reported to have  made the remark years ago that if  he caught the crew of a hostile, submarine in time of war he would  string them up to the yardarm, even  if he had to -face court martial afterwards. Some years ago, when the  French Admiral Gervais visited Portsmouth with his fleet, Fisher was told  off by Queen Victoria, for whom he  had a great affection, to do the honors.. In an interview her majesty  expressed the wish that the visitor be  most' courteously treated. "Madam,"  he replied, "I will even kiss him if  your majesty wishes it."  Nevertheless, Fisher was always  adverse to alliances, particularly marl-  time ones, for, as he said, "You cannot shoot a friendly admiral for ignorance or negligence." This remark  will euab!e one to understand why-  he is not loved In the fleet. :When he  was invited- to become First Sea  Lord he acceptPd only on certain conditions. One- was that he should be  permitted to ladically change the  whole theory of naval defence. It  was Fisher who adopted the policy  of keeping the great bulk of the empire's naval strength in" tho North  Sea. Before his timo tho navy was  scattered all over the world, just as  It had been for one hundred years.  Fisher, however, saw that the great  battle of the future wo'uld be fought  near the coast of England, and there  he placed -his Dreadnoughts, leaving  only a few cruisers to guard the shipping routes in other parts of the  earth. Under him the dreadnought  came into existence. In fact, the  modern navy is his work, and now  he has been callod back to use the  tool that he created.  Why Japan is for Britain  Japan   Is  Ready to  Defend  That For  Which British Are Ready to  Die  In an article entitled "Japan and  the European Armageddon," Count  Shigenobu Okuma, the prime minister,  writing- in the Japan Magazine about  the war, says some forceful things  about Japan's relation to the west.  "It will be our one ambition at this  time," he writes, "to show the west  what it is slow to believe���������that we  can work harmoniously with great  Occidental powers to support and  protect the highest ideals of civilization, even to the extent of dying for  them. Not only in the Far East, but  anywhere else that may be necessary,  Japan is ready to lay down her life  for the principles that the foremost  nations will die for. It is to be in lino  with these nations that she is at this  time opposing and fighting what Jhe  believes to be opposed to these principles."  The premier continues: "She entered the alliance with Great Britain  to stand for and die for what Anglo-  Saxons are everywhere ready to defend even unto death. It is Japan's  aim and ambition to participate in all  world-movements toward noble diplomacy, international relations and the  principle of equal opportunity and  peace, and to p: event by any proper  means the outbreak or continuance of  bloodshed between nations. Japan's  relation to the present conflict is as a  defender of the things that make for  higher civilization and a more permanent pe'ice."  Count Okuma devotes considerable  space to an historical resume of the  causes of the present international  war. Speaking generally, he, thinks  that war is always due to an uneven-  ness of advancement in the progress  of civilization, which, like water,  must find its level. When its force  is obstructed there will bo violence  and bloodshed. War is abo a result  of the pressure offered in resistance  to the growth of civilization.  Speaking in particular, the premier in Inclined to find the root of  tho present war in the weakness of  the Balkan peninsula. "Like China,"  he affirms, "it is a seething crater in  the world's diplomacy. From conditions apaprently insignificant in themselves half the world can be set on  fire and plungod into d/stress and decimated."  Kaiser is Canny  Has  Huge Sums  Invested  in  Canada  and   Appropriates   Part  of  Belgian Tribute  The Canadian government has asked the law officers of the crown in  London to say what action should bo  taken with private property acquired  during recent years by the kaiser in  Canada. It is reported that ever since  the war began he has been receiving  remittances from this property  through trustees acting for him in tho  United States. His investment oi immense sums in landed property both  in the Dominion a d in the Western  States began at the time when he first  warned the banks of Germany to prepare themselves for financing the German government in case of a European war.  That the kaiser, in making new  world investments at the same time  that he commenced his preparations  for the conquest of weutern Europe,  was provicing against the possibility  of dethronement, is widely believed.  'j. lie opinion gaiiu some support from  the fact that he has insistea on the  appropriation to his own personal uses  of a certain percentage of the cash indemnities levied in Belgium and  France. Ono of Lis Bons came to  Kheims in a mctor car to take away  the tribute extorted from that unhappy city.  The Arms of Glasgow  The explanation of tho coat of arms  of Glasgow is curious. On it are an /  oak tree with a bell hanging on one  of its branches, a bird at the top of  the tree, and a salmon,, with a ring  in it3 mouth, at the base. St. Kenti-  gern, in the seventh century, took up  his abode on the site of the present  city of Glasgow. Upon an oak la the  clearing lie hung a bell to summon  the savages to worship, hence the oak  and bell. A queen, having formed &n  attachment to a soldier, gava hlU a  precious ring, which the king had  given- her. The kir>g, aware of the  fact, stole upon tj. ������������������ soldier in sleep,  abstracted the :ing, threw it into the  Clyde, and then asked the queon for  it. The queen, in alarm, applied to St.  Kjntlgern, who went to the Clyde,  caught a salmon with the ring In-Its  mouth, handed it to the queen, and  was thus the means of r eat or ing peace  to the royal couple.  tmmmmmmwmmmm  winmimim- THE   SU1S,    GRAND   FORKS,   B.
