 s  Kettle Valley Orchardist  FOURTEENTH YEAR���������No.  10  GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY g, 1915  '  $1.00 PER YEAR  LJFE IN THE CITY  ;. R-A. Brown is engaged'.in haul,  ing the machinery- whicErhe".purchased from the , owners of. the  Rathmullen mine some years ago  from that property to his Volcanic  mine. When the^machinery is installed on that property he will resume work; on the tunnel, which is  now in about 900 feet.       -    ~  yards,- whioh will complete tbe line  to Princeton. Vice-President Bury,  of the Canadian Pacific railway, has  made promise that'this -line will ba  open to traffic to Nelson  by June 1.  W." J: Meagher, an old smelter  employee, who -was badly injured  in the briqueting room about a year  ago, barf opened a cigar and tobacco  store, in the Henniger building,  corner Bridge' and Third streets.  Mr. Meagher has a large number of  friends in the city, and will no doubt  receive a liberal patronage. .  About thirty citizens of ��������� Paulson  sat down tc a Christmas dinner at  the Inland Mining company's board-,  ing--house.">T.he table -contained  everything^to.eat, and an attractive  tree was loaded with presents for  both young and old.  It-' is reported from Greenwood  that" Ole Lofstad, who has.been  driving the Argo tunnel for the past  six years, has'at last been rewarded  by "striking a large body of gold; bearing ore. The tunnel starts within  the city limits and has been driven  ��������� 1200 feet. The vein was struck at a  '^depth of 900.feet. The lead is said  to" be at least eight feet 'wfde - aud to  assay $40 in.gold.  James H. Ryley, who visited his  ���������family at Queens bay during tbe  Christmas holidays, returned to the  city on" Wednesday. He was accompanied by Mrs. Ryley, whojvill  visit here for a short time.  '. Canada's cattle herds are being depleted. It is to be hoped that the  cleaning out will mean a smaller  percentage of inferior animals. Unfortunately very often - under such  circumstances the owner is prevailed upon to part with the best.  If . high price3 tempt, it is always  advisable to start at the most inferior  animals of the lot'. Do not offer the  choicest; they.are worth as much on  your farm as on that of another.  IU GREEK'S ���������  GOOD SHOWING  The sum of 6265.65, "raised in  Greenwood by concerts, sales and  donations, was remitted a lew days  ago to the patriotic fund committee  at Victoria.  Seven teams are at present employed in hauling ore from the  Union mine in Gloucester to Lynch  Creek.   Regular shipments are made  from that point to the  Granby  and  "Trail smelters. .  McDougall, Guthrie & Co , Kettle  Valley line contractors, have finished the gap between Princeton  and Osprey lake, the present end of  steel. It is expected that construe  tion will begin on the branch to  Prince8S'V"camp, ' Copper mountain,  in the spring.;  X:As thei result of - the agricultural  survey of the commission of conservation, it has been found that in  a number of cases too many horses  are kept to be profitable, while the  number of cattle kept per hundred  acres is seldom up to . the capacity  of the farms. -     ';'    .-. J\  The figures  of  Granby net earnings   for   November' from   Hidden  Creek, operations,   according to the  Boston- Comfaercial,  will  show -between $85,000. and   $90,000. 't This  would compare .with $65,000 in October,    when   copper   was  lower in  price.    November's cost of   production was expected to be slightly   below that of   the  preceding   month,  when   it   established'a record at 8  -cents a pound.   "Befora the   current  fiscal period to the end of  June  30,  1915,    has   been  rounded   out',' the  management   looks   for   a   cost no  higher than 7-J-' cents a pound.    Development work on the Midas prop  erty in Alaska, which was scheduled  to commence during the fall months,  ceased when it was decided to  curtail production -50   per  cent.    Construction    work   on the plant, however, has continued,   so  that  when  conditions  warrant  this section   of  'the   group   will    be  in   position to  commence shipments.   No  thoupht  has been given to the resumption of  dividends, it heing deemed  advisable to conserve cash vvhilp operating  only part capacity,'and later be in a  position   to   resume  and  maintain  dividends*.- enforced by   the greatest  productive   capacity   the  company  has ever known.  Friday  . The'Gecmaris, exhausted by-furir  ous attacks,- take up new 'position's  in Poland.' A Petrograd "report says  von Hindenberg must confess that  the task set bim has proved beyond  Teuton strength. The Russians repulse frequent attacks; allow a column to advance close to the-trenches  and then open a muderous fire.  Fortifications in South Polarfd are  taken by storm.  The British battleship Formidable  is destroyed in the English channel.  The admiralty is unable to say  whether a mine or a submarine  caused the loss of the vessel, which  ���������vas-of'tbe same class as the Bui  wark. Survivors declare that she  was torpedoed. Probably 600 of the  crew drown. A trawler rescues 70  amid a fierce storm.  The French break up the foe's  earteworks, and make progress foot  by foot in the Alsatian village of  Steinbach. The Germans claim to  have captured a British trench; they  say they do not want to retake the  village.  The Turks fear lhat'the allies will  break into the Dardanelles.  President Poincare, of France, ex-  'pects peace'this year. ^   - - ..-  Saturday  The worst weather in years makes  the allies' progress slow in the west.  Costly.attacks result in a gain of a  few yards of territory. The position  of the Germans at St. Mihiel- is being gradually 'made untenable. The  fortifications from "u hich ��������� the sappers were harrased are smashed by  the big guns. The gains made by  the allies iu Alsace are  maintained.  Warsaw is no longer menaced by  the Prussian armies in Poland. The  enemy is repulsed by the Russians  from the Bzura- and Rawka rivers;  great losses. The Austrian retreat  in Bukowina has become a route,  says Duke Nicholas.    The Germans  A Berlin report declares that the  British battleship- Formidable was  the victiru of topedoes.    .

' '    '  ,   Tuesday  The^ossacks harrass the defeated  foe in the snow-covered mountain  passes. The Austrians are declared  to be in full retreat, with the Russian cavalry attacking the flank and  rear, in Uszok region. The victory  gives control of, another oil field.  A great battle on open ground near  the Prussian .frontier is   anticipated.  An entire army corps of -Turkish  troops is captured by the Ru.-sians.  The retnants of another corps which  Invaded Caucasia is. in disorderly re  treat, pursued by the victorious  forces of the ezar. Tlie Turks lacked  equipment, and had no trains.- The  Muscovites attacked from two sides.  Most of the trophies of war taken  are of German make.  a  Avbloody battle precedes tbe capture Steinbach. The French push  on toward Mulhausen. Some successes in the.St. Mihiel and Flanders  regions are reported."  Great Britain and Germany will  'send men incapacitated for service  to their, borne countries.  A Berlin report says that operations in Alsace appear to be proceeding favorably for the Germans.  Wednesday  ' The Germanadvantages diminish  and the-allies increase their resources. Lord Kitchener tells the  house of lords that war preparations  are being carrier! on in way which  will enable the struggle to be  brought to a triumphant end. Great  Britain gradually overcomes the difficulties in securing equipment.  The field marshal speaks of the noteworthy progress made in France and  Next Thursday, January 14,  the electors of Grand Forks will be  called upou to' choose" their"mayor  and aldermen for 1915. There are  also three vacancies on the school  board. Nominations will be made  on Monday, and the poll, if re  quired, will be taken on the first-  mentioned date.

Violent frontal attacks are  directed against the forces defending Cracow. The Austrians are  said to hold strong positions.  Last night the French troops  lost  and   then   regained. the    territory  around   the   church  of Steinbaeh.,  This morning they occupied the en  tire village.  Naval Marksmanship  Many persons ��������� who  are   familiar  with   the   wonderful marksmanship  of the gunners of the leading navies  of the world have   doubted   whether  the   perfection   attained   in   target  practice in time of peace  could   be  approached in tbe stress of a battle.  The Engineering News points to the ���������  recent engagement  off  t.he coast of,  Chile as a marvelous illustration  of '  what can actually be accomplished  by   a   fighting ship  at long range.  According to the newspaper reports,  tbe German cruisers began   firing at  the English ships at a distance of six  miles, and had   injured   them   seriously by tbe time the distance   was  reduced to four miles.    Aside   from  the problem of  attaining  the exact  range, there are many  other   things  to be considered, such   as  inaccuracies in the gun, or in   the   projectile  itself,   the influences of  tbe   wind,  and the changes in    the devatiou of  tbe   gun   caused    by    rolling seas,  "Tbe engineer," says the  Engineering News, ''takes off his  hat,   metaphorically speaking, to 'the man behind   the   gun,'    whose  wonderful  skill and carefuUuse of   bis   instruments  achieve   such   results.    But  these results are also   a  testimonial  to the marvelous accuracy  of  modern methods'of manufacture,  which  can   produce   a gun  of  such close  shooting.    The   modem high-power  rifle may almost be compared to an  astronomical instrument in   the   accuracy of its marksmanship; but although the astronomical instrument  is carefully protected against stresses  that might interfere with  its accurate work, the gun and its mounting  are subjected to   enormous   stresses  and shocks, notwithstanding   which  it must maintain its   accuracy    unimpaired."  day   during   the   past   week  as re-  corded by the government thermom  eter on E.

It will b.u a long job.  it  \vill be a terrible war. But ia tlu  end wo shall march through terror to  triumph.   W.e shall need all our-quail-  ties; every quality that Britain aud .'is  --poople possess���������prudence in coanscr,  daring in action, tenacity^in purpose,  courage in defeat, moderat:-n in victory;   in- all   ihinfs,   faith;   and. we  shall win.    ,  /'It lias pleased them to believe and  lo preach tin belief that we are a decadent, degenerate nation. They proclaim it to the .-,'orld, through their  j rotessors���������that v,e are an rnheroic  nation, skulking behind our- mahogany counters, whilst we are egging on  more gallant races to their destruction. This is a description given of  us.in Germany���������a timorous, craven nation, trusting to-its fleet. I think they  ;ire beginning to find out their mistake  already. And 'there are half a million  of young men of Britain who have already registered their vow to their  king that they will cross the seas and  hurl that insult against British courage against its perpetrators on the battlefields of Prance and. of Germany.  And we want half a million more. And  we shall get them. '-  But Wales,must continue doing her  duty.. I should like to see a Welsh  army in the field. 1 should like to see  ihe race who"faced the Normans for  hundreds of years iu their struggle tor.  freedom, the race Uat helped to win  the battle of Crecy, the race that  fojght for a generation under Glen-  dower against the greatest captain .in  B'i'ope���������I should like to see Lhat race  give a good taste of its quality in this  struggle in-Europe, and they are going to do it.  "I envy you young-people youx  youth. They hav- put up the age limit for the army but I march, i aro sorry to say, a good many years ������ven ne-  yond lhat. ��������� But still our turn will  come. It is a great "opportunity. It  only comes once in many centuries to  the children of men. For most genera  tions, sacrifice comes in drab, weariness of spirit to men. It has cdcij today to you; i'.has come today to us  all, in the form of the glow and thrui  of a great movement for liberty, that  in.pels millions throughout Europe to  ihe same end.  "It is a grtat war for the emancipation of Europe from the thraldom of ..  military   cas.������j,   which   has   cast   its  -shadow upon two generations of men,  and which has now plunged the wor.d  into a swelter of ' bloodshed.    Some"  have .already given- their lives. There  aro some" who have given more than  their own lives.   They have given the  lives of taose who are dear-to them.  T honor their courage, and may God  be their comfort and  their strength.  "But their reward is at hand. Those  who   have" fallen   have   consecrated  death.   They have taken their part in  the making of  t new Europe,-a new  " world.   I can ::oe sirns of it coming in  the glare of the battlefield. The people wul gain more by  this struggle  in all lands than they comprehend at  the prose, t moment.    It is true they  will be rid of the menace to their freedom.   But that is not all.  "Ther:> is something infinitely greater and more enduring which is emerging already out ^f this great couflicc  ���������a new patriotism, richer, nobler,  more-exalted th- i the old.  "1 see a ne ' recognition -amongst  : 11 classes, high and- low, shedding  themselves of. selfishness, a new recognition that the 1 onor of a country  noes not depend merely on the' maintenance of its glory ,in the stricken  field, bu; in protecting Its homes from  distress as well. It is a new pp.riot-  . ism, it is bringing a new outlook for  all clashes. A 'great flood of luxury  ...nd of sloth which had submerged the  land is recedin-", and a new Britain is  Appearing. We can see fo? the first  time the fundamental'things that mat  ter in life, and that have been obscured from cur visio:: by the tropical  growth of prosperity."  - "May I tell you, in a simple parable,  what I think this war is doing for us?  ���������Mr. Lioyd George concluded. "I Icuot;  a. valley in North Wales, between the  mountains and the sea, a beautiful  valley. snug, comfortable, sheltered by  the mountains from all bitte- blasts. J.  was very enervatu g, and I remember  how the boys were in the habit of  climbing the hills above the village to  have a glimpse oi the great mountain.,  in the distance and to be stimulated  r-.i.d freshened by the breezes whic):  "came froir the hilltops and by tho  great spectacle of that great valley.  "Wo have been living.in a sheltered  valley for generations. We have been  too 'comfortable, too indulgent, many  perhaps too seltish. And the stern  T.and of fate has scourged us to an  .elevation where wc can see the great  everlasting things that matter for a  nation, the great peaks of honor we  had forgotten, duty and patriotism,  clad in glittering white, the great pin.  nacle of sacrifice pointing line a rug  gcd finger to Heaven. We shall descend into the /-alleys again, but as  long as the men and women of this  generation last they will carry in their  hearts the image of these great mountain peaks whose fingers are unshaken though Europe rock and sway in  the convulsions of a great war.''  r. ho chancellor resumed his seat  ������midst loud and continued cheering.  There was a grea-. rush ot criiitJ  to the recruiting room after the meeting-.'  ."���������    Womeii   in   the   Fighting   Line  In recent years, women have taken  -a prominent part in  tho combatant,  as well as  fhe non-combatant, ranks  of an army in ilie field.  About six years ago Persian women  showed their bravery by entering the  army and righting shoulder to shoulder with _the soldiers in the trenchers.  Hundred's put on the Persian military  Uniform and fought at Tabeiz.  The part they took in ihe fighting  was shown by upwards of 100 women  being among the 2,000 killed by the  enemy.  ' Signora Mario played a very prominent part iu the Italian revolution-,  ary movements, .afterwards writing  chc life of .Garibaldi; besides editing  the letters of Ma/.zini. ^  She .was the wife of one of Garibaldi's officers; and with him phinged  into the. activity of,the struggle for  liberty. She went through the whole  or the exciting, campaign, in the two  SiciliesT* and rode up to Naples  through Calabria laughing and-joking  with the cver-concjuering "red shirts"  who .intend to again take the field  against Germany.  ' A woman named s.' Kirtskays, dis-.  guised herself as a man, left her native province,-, and journeyed to the  Far East to serve in the mounted  troops against the Japanese. During  her two - rim a half months at the  front she took active part ii. an engagement with the Chinese, carried a  number of wounded comrades out of  firing range, dressed their -wounds,  and defended them until the end of  the battle. Her bravery gainedx the  jstilitary Order of the Kourth Degree.  Joining down to more recent times,  we have the ex.impre of Mrs. White-  rose, who rendered valuable assistance as despatch runner in the South.  African campaign.  . She was bcrn of military parents in  India, and always had a love for  roaming the wo/ld. As ��������� a girl she-  joined Buffalo Bill's "Wild West Riders, where she soon became a crack  shot and a clever horsewoman.  When the war broke out in South  Africa she went to Cape Town and  got in touch with the Boers, to whom  she supplied certain information, afterwards becoming despatch runner  to tlie famous De Wet.- Ultimately  she transferred her services to the  British, and, tljnning military attire,  she passed off- as .an ordinary trooper,  joining the army-just before the Modeler RiverfcBattle:1" _-~������^  Imbued with the righting , spirit  were also the women of Montenegro  and Albania during the last two Balkan wars. Many women were then in  the fighting line with their menfolk,  and the Servian wonien have regularly enlisted and served in. the army  against the Austrians in the present  conflict.  c ~%.

The'Bravery of the Briton  In the chapel at Glenalmond school,  in  Perthshire,   Scotland,    there  is  a  marble slab  with this  stirring story  recorded upon it: .  There was once in the school a pupil  named Alexander Cumine'RusesU'who  .became an office;-~in the 7-lth Highlanders -when only a-lad of seventeen.  In connection with tlie memorable  loss of Birkenhead he won*immortal  glory. The troopship struck upon a  rock; the soldiers were formed in  ranks upon the deck to die; the women  and children were being saved in  boats.  \ Russell was ordered into one of ihe  boats to command it, and a little way  off he watched with dimmed eyes  JLhe doomed ship. When ^she went  [down 'ho saw creatures of the deep  contending for his beloved comrades.  Then he saw a sailor's form rise up  close to the boat and a hand strive to  grasp the side.  '��������� A woman in the craft called out in  agony: "Savj-him! Oh! save him, sir!  He is my husband," but there was no  r.oom. for another, antl the boat was  laboring heavily as it was. Russell  looked at tua Avoman, and then at -her  children, then at those beseeching  eyes in the deep, and, rising in' the  stern, he plunged into the water and  helped the sailor into what had been  his own place. Then amid a. chorus  of '"God bless you" from every one in  the boat the brave young officer turned to meet his death.���������Pearson's  Weekly.  Want to  Help  Royal  Navy  The naval volunteers in -British Columbia may be increased to one thousand if a resolution, which has been  forwarded to Ottawa from the'organisation in Victoria, is acceded to. Moreover, the" suggestion, is made that not  only should Canada send soldiers for  military service, but undertake, in a  way, to supply the wastage in the  naval service.  The volunteer naval militia was  got under way last spring, but. just  when the organization was being  proceeded with nicely the war broke  out. Instructors could not be obtained. About 200 recruits, however,  are serving on the Rainbow and the  citizens on the coast are reported to  ho taking a particular pride in the  movement. What they now ask is  some facilities for preliminary training, and to be drafted as recruits  to help lo supply the natural wastage in the British navy.  If .Germany  Invades the British  Isles  II. G. Wells, the novelist, contributes, the following to- the London  .Times:   "  -" v  "Frankly I, do not believe in' a German raid on England and I think we  can play the German game in letting  our minds dwell on it. I am supposed  co be a person of feverish imagination, but even by lashing my imagination to its-ruddiest, I cannot, in this  day of wireless telegraphy, see appropriately equipped German forces,  not even so trivial a handful as 20,-  000, getting itself, with guns, motors,  ammunition ' and provisions upon  British soil.  "I cannot even see the mere landing of infantrymen.  "Still, asv it is likely that these  alarms may' even lead to the retention of troops in Britain when the  point of maximum effectiveness is  manifestly in France, it uecomes necessary to insist upon the whole of our  civil population, if only" the authorities will permit a small amount of the  organization and preparation to deal  quite successfully with any raid that,  in the extremity of German boldness,  may be intended.  In the- first place, let the expert  have no illusions as to what we ordinary-people are going to do if we find  any German soldiers in Britain one  morning. Wo are going to fight, and  if we cannot,fight with rifles we shall  fight with shotguns, and if we cannot  fight according to the rules of war  apparently made "by Germans for the  restraint of British military experts,  we will fight according to our inner  lights.  "Many men, and not a few women,  ,will turn out to shoot Germans. There  will be no preventing them, after the  ,Belgian stories. It the experts attempt  any pedantic interference. Ave will  shoot the experts. J know that in this  matter I speak- for so sufficient a  jiumber of people that it will be quite  useless, hopelessly dangerous, and  foolish for any export of the instructed minority to' remain tame. They will  get shot and their houses burnt, according''to the German rules and  methods,'in our account.  "So they may just as well turn out  hi the first place and get. some shooting, as a consolation in advance for  their inevitable troubles.  "If iho raiders, cut off by s?a from  their supports, ill 'equipped and  againts odds, are so badly advised as  to try any terror striking reprisals on  the Belgian pattern, we irregular";  will, of 'course, massacre every German straggler we can put a gun to.  "Such a procedure may be sanguinary, but it is just the common sense  of the situation. We shall hang the  .officers and shoot the men. War is  .war, and reprisals antl terror-striking  .are games that two can play at. This  .is the1 latent temper of the British  countryside, and the sooner the ,auth-  .orities take it iu hand and regularize  ^it, the better will be the outlook in  \ihe remote event of that hypothetical  .raid, getting home to us.    .  "Levity is a national characteristic  .but submissiveness is not-.. Under sufficient provocation the- British are  .capable of *a very dangerous bad  .temper, and the expert is dreaming  .who thinks of any . German expedition moving through an apathetic Essex, for example, resisted only by ihe  offiical forces .trained antl training.  . "This is a people's .war, ��������� a war  .against militarism, not a war for the  .greater glory of British diplomatists,  officials and people in uniforms. It 's  .our war, not their war, and tlie last  .thing we intGnd as a result from it is  .permanently increased importance for  .the military caste."  SCALING    INFLUENCES   STUMAGE  The Futility of Bomb Throwing  If the 'Germans had to deal with a  nation of cowards:.they might hope for  some political result from propping  bombs indiscriminately on the streets  with the chance of killing or maiming  some poor woman or child, or in the  glorious hope of plumping upon a  motor bus antl smashing ind mutilating a score of people of both sexes and  all ages. But a;, a weapon against a  spirited people these methods merely  nerve every man to a grimmer tleter-  niuation.

This great disparity As  due to tho fact that: the majority of  these log-rules are but rules of thumb  evolved from the rough diagrams or  experience of the early lumbermen  who were always careful to allow a liberal,' though arbitrary, percentage for  waste in sawing. Originally inaccurate,  they are. becoming increasingly so  with the introduction of handsaws antl  more modern.milling methods, and attempts, as yet unsuccessful, have been  made to suhslitule these old rules  by a standard rule having mathematical accuracy. Probably the best rule  yet formulated is the ���������"International  Log Rule," ' prepared by Dr. J'. F.  Clark when Chief forester for Ontario  "rhich he verified. by extensive tests  at the mill.  It is interesting to compare this International Uuletwith those iu most  common use in Canada. A sixteen-foot  log twelve inches in diameter contains  according to the'-'-livternatio'nal- Rule,  105 feet, boardt measure, of lumber;  according to the^ Scribner Rule/used  in the Prairie Provinces. 75 feet, board  measure, And according to the Doyle  Rule, in most common use in Eastern  Canada, only G4 feet, board measure,  of lumber. This' disparity is even  ���������greater, in smaller'logs and it is small  logs which make up the greater part  of th,e cut in Canada today. Thus, so  far as stum page, dues are concerned,  it is safe to say that very often the  lumbermen pay only for half tho merchantable lumber the average lot,- really contains. It is significant that when  the British Columbia government recently decided to increase the royalty  paid on timber;cut in the interior of  the provinces,.,it accomplished that  purpose merely by stipulating that  the British-Columbia Log Rule should  henceforth be used in that region instead of the Doyle Rule, thus increasing by 45 per cent, the amount of estimated lumber in the logs cut.  It is possible that in other parts ot'  Canada the bonus paid by. the lumbermen i������ addition to stumpage dues  makes^ up for this loss in scaling. But,  other things being equal, lumbermen  operating" under a lenient rule have  an unfair advantage over those whose'  logs are more closely scaled antl'the  only, final remedy would seem to be  the adoption of a general rule such  ej the International, or better, still,  the substitution of cubic measurement-  of l'gs, a. practice which has long  been- in operation in Europe where  high lumber prices make accuracy not  only desirable but necessary.

' have that  FRIDAY, JANUARY S,   1915  Discussing   the attainment of one  hundred   years   of   peace   between  Great   Britain   and    America,   the  Manchester   Guardian, alluding   to  the disarmanent of the long frontier  between   Canada   and    the   United  States, says   that   hud   this frontier  been   fortified   and   soldiers placed  along --it   with   the  knowledge that  some day they   might be  attacked,-  the whole history-of   the   last   half  century would have been   different.  We. might  have kept  peace, but it  would    have   been   armed     peace.  This, the   longest 'line  of frontier,  instead of-being its   own protection,  would have been the  cause  of   the  financial and   political   demoralize-  tion of both countries.  The  Slocan"Record   has'gone to  the assistance of the large  army  of  rural  newspapers   in   this province  which   change  their political views  after every election to'conform  with  the platform of   the government  of  the   day  in order thai they may remain near the fleshpots      We  con  g.iatulate these wards of  the government,  or political  Judas   Escariots,  on their success in securing  so  able  a champion; but, at  the same time,  we are inclined to  believe, that this  subject   could   be   more imparti -lly  treated by a man less   vitally   inter  ested   in   the   matter of 'patronage  than is the editor of the Record.  There are few'people who are able  to make a good living from so small  an   amount,-of land as is Oliver R  Shearer, who lives at Hyde   Park, a  suburb of Reading, Pa:   Mr. Shearer  is two and one-half miles   from the  heart of the city, and raises   vegeta  hies and poultry.    His farm consists  fii a trifie over three acres, but there  are   only   about   two   and one half  acres that are under actual   cultiva  tion. The little farm produces about  10,000 heads   of   celery, 300 to 500  tomato plants, and   anywhere   from  3000 to 7000 each of lettuce,  endive  and beets.    From five to ten bushels  of   onion   sets   are   usually planted  each year   and   yield   a    bountiful  crop.  [ recognize that the future pros  perity of Canada depends" on. scientific research and upon the efficient  application of the results of that research to the industrial and physical life of the people:���������Earl Grey.  Al Morrison, of the Mother Lode,  thas received a letter   from   Tommy  Lyons,    who   is   with the Canadian  contingent on Salisbury Plains, Eng  land.    Ho says lhat the  Canadians  expect   to   be   at   the front by the  middle of   .January.    After  leaving  Quebec it took the contingent seventeen days to  find   the little   island,  and then they landed in a rainstorm,  and   the  same rainstorm is still doing business.     Lyons says that they  have   in   England   the   cutest liule  trains   that   ever   rolled   on    rails.  Liitle in size but big in speed.'  The  Canadians have moved around   considerably, living'in tents,   huts  and  suffering from wet clothes    at    times.  The   drilling   is    harder- than it is at  the Mother Lode., and   sometimes   the  Tommies work two .shifts.    Tiie eiqliD  i|our law is nut observed at Salisbury.  The people of England are good to the  soldiers.    They-visit thorn   often   and  send    them    plum   pudding arid other-  good    things.     Lyons    took   a tr'ip to  London,'where he found that  nothing  was   too   good "for a Canadian.    If a  Canadian stood on a street corner   fur-  a minute you could hardly get through  the crowd   wanting- .something' -from  Canada.     Lyons'  says    that the" boys  are all eager to get into   the   trenches  and fire a few shuts like   the    Mother  Lode had occasionally     Tommy sends  his best regards to all   his   friends ���������  Ledge  reset.

' "It-is perfectly wonderful," she  6aid to a patient friend, ''to see the  way Mr, Lane counts bills at the  bank. I think they are so lucky to  have him! He'll" take a great pile  of five and ten and twenty dollar  bills and make his -fingers fly jus  like lightning, and never make a  misiake!"  "Never?" asked the friend, who  knew Mrs. Lane's weakness, and  could not forbear the question.  1 "Well���������no���������at least," stammered  Mrs. "Lane, ''why, perhaps . he  might get five or ten cents out of  the wnv, but not any   more,   ever."  Where Was Papa?  A handsomely dressed lady rescued her fluffy pet with some difficulty from the attack of a street cur,  and began to soothe and sympathize  in this manner:  "You dear little' thing, your mamma drove that ugly, big dog away,  didn't she? Next time you will eat  that big, naughty dog up, won't  you, Tootsy-wootsy? Mamma wants  you to just " tear that mean old  thing-to pieces next time he bothers  you "  - Three-year old Irene, wLo- had  witnessed the whole affair,, listened  with interest'to the gushing mono-'  logue.

She spoke of their beef  all coming from tbe west, and wishing to test thechildren's observation,  she asked:  "And what else comes to us from  these ranches?')  That was a poser. She looked at  her shoes, but no one took the hint.  She tried again:  "What do we get from the cattle  besides the beef?"  One boy eagerly raised his  hand.  '���������I know what it is.

J������������������ ���������  :THE    SUN,    GRAND    FORKS,    B. C  RENCH COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF  GENERAL JOFFRE OUT-WITTED GEN. VON KLUCK  By Far-Sighted Plan ot Campaign the Germans were led xnio the  Trap of the Marne���������Allies' Retreat at a Critical  Juncture Turned the Tables  Whether or not the war offices of  Britain and "France have' definite  knowledge of tho matter themselves,  the world as large, at any rate, has  never been .supplied - with a- definite  reason for the sudedn swerving of the  German armies . southeastward from  tlie very gates of Paris.   There   had  " been no serious repulses experienced  by them .prior, to that "sudden change  . of plan, but just when the world was  expecting   the- bombardment   of   the  French .capital to begin,   they turned  partly around and marched right past  ��������� their objective.  'The' latest reports of General Sir  . John French,' covering the latter end  ftl the retreat of tho allies to the  Marne, and the figlitmg from then on,  do not state a reason for the-enemy's  change of plans, being seemingly, purposely vague on the. stage of tlie campaign. But these reports,'however, do  provide some hints which are of assistance'in .speculating as to the  cause of tho sudden swerve of the  Germans. . \  In tlie first place, we heard much in  those discouraging days of retreat  about the desperate attempt of the  e:.emy to tun; the extreme left of tho  N allies, the BrP.ish under - General  French being on the defensive side of  this attempted turning movement.  Before we knew whether this movement was to be.successful, word came  of the unexplained-- swerve of Von  Kluck./statements.by General French  throw some light here, however.  While the English were retiring before  Von"-Kluck    they    referred   to  by  '-the comamnder as forming the-extreme left of the allied line, then,  without the change being explained,  we find General French saying in his  report that on August 29 "three'or four  more German corps were opposing the  sixth French army on my left."  That is, prior to August 29 the  British were on the extreme left, but  on that date the -sixth French army"  had taken tlie extreme northwest position. This .would seem to' clear up  the "situation with respect to the  turning movement ^attempted.' by Von  Kluck, and at the same time provide  a reason for the swerve to the southeast. Apparently General Jol'fre saved the le������tx by sending" up a now  French army, and when Von Kluck  found this new obstacle in his path  he had either to abandon his turning  movement or continue it at greaL  risk well to the northwest. Rather  than do this, and also because the  German  armies   advancing- ou  Paris  -farther south were-meeting with.difficulties, Von Kluck decided to go to  the >ast i-nd try to efrect a-junctioa  with the Crown ?rince.  - With the German right checked by  tho presence of this sixth army, the  allies had/to decide whether or not  ' it was tinie to rest their retreat and  institute a definite counter-offensive.  It was the determination of General  Joffre, assented to by General French;  to-fall back still further which led  the Germans into tre trap of the  Marne.  Studying the , report of .General  French on this stage of the operations, the New York Evening Post  evolves a very-logical speculation as  to the -.southeas'erly move of the  enemy. Quoting the paragraph of the  report: "This was the situation when  'I  receiver!   a    visit  from . General  Joffre at my headquarters. * * '* I  strongly represented my position, to  the     French    commander   in   chief.  ��������� * * I finally arranged with General Joffre to effect a further short  retirement towards the line between  Compicgne aud Soissons," the Post  says: ���������  - "Evidently it. was the British commander's belief that the time bad  come to make a stand and that he  yielded only to strategical' reasons  propounded- by General Joffre. What  were tlie:e:- reasons?' Apparently  these; that while the Sixth French  Array on the British left might be.  sent forward . against the' German  lino, and so possibly' bring an end  to the retreat, it was more- profitable to hold this army back until  the German advance ' had come so  far south that this French army,  instead of being sent against the-  Gorman front, could be thrown  against" the enemy's flank, General  .Toffre's reasons must have been convincing because we find that not only  did General French consent to make  a "short retirement toward the line  between Cdmpiegne and Soissons,"  but that in the course of the following  week he iill back fifty miles further  south tcr below the Marne.  * "It thus follows that Gen. Joffre,  like ��������� Gen. French, recognized that  the German-advance against Paris  had failed by the"-end of August,  but that Gen. Joffre foresaw, .what  Geu, French did not, that von Kluck,'  shut off from Paris, would swerve to  the east, and so expose his flank to  the new French-army. It was a bold  ���������move to anticipate on the part of the  enemy. Why should .vou Kluck sheer  to the southeast, and march with his  rights flank'.across the enemy's front?  He'iC the probable answer is that  von Kluck knew, what Gen. Joffre  knew, that on the "left of the German line things were not going well;  that the Crown Prince was being  forced back, or, at least, held iu  check;-and that it was worth while  taking the risk of a flank attack from  the French on the chance of'breaking  through the allied centre, or, at tho  very least, relieving- the pressure  f-gainst the German left: Over-confidence may have induced von Kluck to  believe-that a heavy rear guard would,  be sufficient to keep the Sixth- French  ���������Army :back from, his flank until his  main force, joined with von Bulow's,  had broken through the French centre. .  Von Klurk took "the chance and  lost. Gen. Joffre took the chance and  won. It_muct havo required courage  of a very high' kind on the part of the  French commander-in "chief" lo fall  back again and again, while keeping  unemployed an army which might  have been brought in.J.o check the  enemy. But what Gen. Joffre aimed at  was not the mere halting of the German advance, but the assumption of  a vigorous counter-offensive. To have  sent jhis new Sixth Army forward  to meet the enemy would have been  only a continuation of the defensive. To kesp it back north of Paris  ready to throw itself on a hostile  army engaged in the perilous experiment of changing front '. promised  greater results; and events justified  the French commander's courage and  foresight.���������Ottawa Free Press. -  Treachery of the Enemy  Germans Vlolr.te Sanctity . of the  White Flag  A French officer who is.in.hpspital  in Paris, gives a graphic account of  the fight in which he fell.  "At nine o'clSck in the evening," he  says, "I . received the order to advance, to entrench myself as well as  ���������"-'" I could, ai,d-resist to the end. My  company took up its .position in a  pouring rain, and about half-past two  In the morning three shots fired by  our sentries warned us of the approach of the enemp.  "The Germans, who had been taking cover in a wood, crept to within  200 yards of us, when they ofrmed up  and charged. I commenced volley firing, and whole ranks of the Germans  fell, but they continued to advance.  Our .well-directed fire arrested their  . advance when.they were thirty yardii  from our trenches.  "During the night a bugle sounded  'Cease lire!' but it was a German  bugle. I was not deceived, and I  el outed with all my power so as to be  hoard by the enemy, 'Fire, indepenc-  ently.'   The Germans fled.  "A few minutes later a German officer appeared carrying a white flag.  I advanced from the trench, accompanied by four men. 'We are sixty,'  ' said the envoy, 'and we wish to surrender.'   I replied 'Advance in order.'  "Four men wounded in the leg3  v" staggered forward, and my men, believing the fight finished, showej  themselves above the trenches. A  Maxim hidden. in the wood immediately opened flre on us with a hail of  ' bullets, while a fresh attack was commenced. . .  "I gave the order to recommence  volleying, and for the time the Prussians decamped. They left many dead  and wounded, and the following day  we found that six men, armed with  rifles, who had fallen in the front  ranks o,' tlie enemy, . wore the Red  Cross on their arms."  Kilties  Rouse Wonder of French  The Scotclf have* given a fearful  account of themcelves and have suffered severely, several regini .Is having been nearly wiped out. In one  engagement the scots Greys charged  with a man of the celebrated Black  Watcli clinging to each stirrup  leather. Reaching the German lines,  the horseman and footman almost annihilated the forca of the enemy at  this point. The same feat of putting  two men tn each horse was performed by the Scots Greys and the Blac.  Watch at Hie battle of AVaterloo.  The Scots are a never-ending  source of wonder to the French peasants. They wear kilts of khaki and  bare knees. The "French' at first  thought their government had brought  over a fearsome race of Amazons to  help them. Told these were Scotsmen, they ��������� remembered the, many  men of this race who had assisted the  French kings against the English, centuries ago, when Scotland and England were at swords' points.  "Vlvent le's Ecossais!" they cried.  Many of tlu peasants tried to press  gifts of wine upon the soldiers, 'and  were' disappointed when the Highlanders, mindful of Earl Kitchener's  admonition, refused to drink.  .   Value of Irrigation  Farmers of Southern Alberta Petition  ���������Government to Undertake Irrl-  \\:\ nation scheme  Fanners in districts in Southern Alberta who are not served by any irrigation project will appeal to the Dominion government through . the department of the interior, to extend irrigation- to their lands. The present  season has demonstrated in a most  conclusive manner the advantages .of  irrigation, as irrigated farms have  fine crops, whereas in districts where  irrigation was not available, the result  has,.been disappointing.

Reports     From     James  and   Hudson  Bay Show Trappers Sorery Need  Help and  Food  W. E. C. Tood f the Carnegie museum, Pittsburg, arrived in Ottawa recently after spending over six months  on the western ' .shores of James and  Hudson bays. Tie was conducting an  expedition for natural history specimens for the Carnegie museum.  Mr. Todd stated that the Indian  trappers in tho region which he visited are suffering to a great extent  through the war. First news of the  fight reached him on Aug. 29, and at  that time the Hudson Bay Co. had  stepped the advances to the Indians. It  is customary- for tlie company to stake  the Indians in tlie fall in the form of  a "debt" of provisions, which is fixed  according to.the hunting abilities of  the debtor." When the season opens  the following year the Indians and  Eskimos redeeri the debt with furs.  As f ese advances have been cut off  tlie natives are in a serious predica-.  ment.  Mr. Todd said Mr. Wilson, the Hudson's Bay Company's manager' for  James Bay showed him a store house  of furs, which at ordinary times  would be worth $100;000, but which at  current market prices are valued at  $17,000. At White River the Indians  were already in a distressing condition and when Mr. Todd arrived in a  sailing boat -the natives came out in-  canoes to meet him and by divers  u ans, mainly by pointing to their  mouths, made him understand that  they were badly in need of food. A  white whale and some porpoises were  caught later, which tided them over  the two weeks until the arrival of tho  Hudson's Bay packet. As .t -vas Mr.  Tcdd's flour was confiscated and distributed among the trappers. r' :ere Is  talk on Hudson Bay that the government will provide for the starving Indians. They cannot be left to their  own resources unlets wholesale starvation takes pla'ce, as tlie country  bears but"the minimum of "meat animals."  Kilometres and Miles  Frequently in the French war office  reports of fighting, distances are  stated in kilometres. The simplest  way to convert kilometres' into miles  Is to divir-e ' y two, divido the result  by four, and add the two results.  Thus.'SOO kilometres divided by two  equals 62.5, and 62.5 added to 250  gives 312.5; so that there are that  number of miles in 500 kiiometres. To  convert miles into kilometres, multiply by oighCand divide the result Ly  five.���������Victoria Colonist.  TALES  OMMITTED BY THE GERMANS  FEARFUL STORIES OF PILLAGE AND DESTRUCTION  Certified Evidence of the Work ot Fiendish  German  Soldiers in  Murdering Innocents  and Wantonly Destroying  Valuable Property  I have Just been furnished with  what is undoubtedly one of the most  formidable indictments yet drawn up  against the conduct of the; German  troops in the.V field, 'says the correspondent of the Glasgow Herald. It  has been provided by John M. Chretien, an attorney at law of San -Francisco, -'.who a few days ago, in company  with a friend, Mr.. Donald Ferguson,  made a trip i into the' heart ; of the  Vosges to see for. themselves to. what  extent,the.stories of- German barbarities were tr ue.' J V mu s t be'stajed:at the'  outset, -V and;V emphasized; that .Mr.  Chretidnhas not accepted.any second  Land evidencelVVTimes, places and  names, it will" be ndted,\ are, given  with scrupulous care, and Mr. Chret-  Jen; took the extra precaution' of -obtaining wherever possible the cards of  the people with whom he spoke.  The Germans entered St. Die by the  Rue de la B oil e, and though it'���������������������������:';. an unfortified town they destroyed every  factory, store, and residence in that  street for. -1 alf'.a mile. They destroyed  them by pouring petroleum over the  floors and setting them oir fire. iN*ot "a.  single place was destroyed -by "artillery  fire but all determinedly, deliberately,  with no other reason-than that of committing pillage and destruction. On  August 29, at 76 Rue de la Bolle, two  old women and three small "children  were seen by the Germans to take refuge in a cellar." .At once the cellar  door was saturated with oil and set on  fire by Otto Bauem, of 'Company 5 of  the-120th Regiment of infantry, who  remained behind: to carry out this particular piece of villainous work. Aftor  he had set fire to the house, and when  he was leaving by the front door, he  was killed, and 1.V; companions returned and buried him .in a plot; of grouni  in front of the-house. Isabel Deni-  houly, aged 65, arid'-Marie Oompard,  aged 59, together with three, children,  escaped by forcing a grating' in the  rear of the cellar. v.:'\..  Next da:, through the kindness of  M. Mare Francois, president of the  Red Cross; and accompanied by Lieutenant Georges Raton, Mr.. Chretien  and .Mr. Ferguson, visited Sauley.  There they .inspected the. Chateau  Sauley, only" completed -four months  ago, and: converted ii���������to an hospital  when war broke; out. . Fiye Red Cross  banners flew from the Chateau oh  September-7, says Mr. Chretien, when  die Germans opened fire on it. One o-  .he banners was-shot away and the  other four are now to bo seen hanging in shreds. A sheU bursting in the  large dining rooni-.where, 75 wourulea  French soldiers were lying billed.them  all, besides the cure, whose bo-'y was  completely severed in two. At the moment tlie cure (Jean Pierre), had been  ministering to the wounded men. Of  the 300 wounded in the chateau it was  only possible to remove 35 to safely.  The floors of the dining room aird library were when I saw theut black with  coagulated blood, and in the garden  wore to be seen more than, a hundred  mattresses saturated witli blor.d. The  wohle interior is amass of runs, but  still the-Red Cros.5 flags in shreds fly  from the roof. Tlie village itself, which j  was abandoned by its inhabitants, was.  "Why is a panic in stocks like the  finding of Moses?"  "Men find a little profit in the  rushes ou the banks."  burned to the ground, not by bursting  shells, but by the buildings being wilfully set on fire after theyekad been  saturated' with petroleum. The empty  petroleum caps T/ere visibje all over  the place. The villagers had r.ot fired  one shot at the Germans-.  : Mandray was the next village .visit-  el. Here the Abbe Renient toll, the  following story: On the night of September 8 the Germans-appeared on the  outskirts of the village,,and cb'nsider-  able fighting took, place in the'main  street.- The French', were- compelled  to retreat^. As' soon as- tha' village  was free of- tlie- French the modern  Huns-began . their ; atrocities. They  forced^the Abbe to unlock the doors  of the parish church. They took his  vestments, the altar candlesticks and ���������  other altar decorations, and the chalices, and then deliberately poured petroleum on tho altar and on the surrounding carpet. The match was applied, and in two hours an 800 years  old' church was a mass of ruins, only  the four: walls V remaining standing  Two days later the Germans buried  six of their dead in the chancel. While  one party was thus giving an example  of Its "culture" others-were not idle.  At nine o'clock a party broke into the  cottage of Madame Marguerite, a grey-  haired' widowof 56 years of age; Four -  held her down, and she was? treated  in the most hideous way by the sergeant. She fled to the Abbe's house,  and told her story, which he afterwards repeated to Mr. Chretien and  Mr. Ferguson-in the Abbe's presence,  in the very room where the cowardly  act had been committed. About a hundred yards from the Abbe's house is -  the cottage of Leonie Apy, aged 21,  and her mother, who had been bed-  :''".den for three years. The daughter,  who was reading to her mother, hearing the .firing, noticing the Germans  approach, and seeing as well the light  of the burning church, put out the  lamp and barred the door. Almost,im- -  mediately after: the door was forced  and"--a.,.party of rermans ��������� rushed in.  They, threw ..the young woman on the  floor and violated her. in the presence  of her ,helpless ���������".'mother. When the  youiig Vwoman-xrecbvei-evd her senses  sin found her .mother wiVs ��������� dead. Oa '  the "morning of /September* the "Abbe  Remeht, .while ministering -to ^flve  wounded'German soldiers whom "Ina  carf ied.from the 'village .street to his  lawn, lrad; his house pillaged '-om top  to,bottom by soldiers belonging to the  saine company as the wounded he was  caring for. They took 400 bottles" of  wine, the entire conents of his cellar,  all his bedding, his pictures, and personal belongings. In the kitchen they,  found a bottle of a colorless liquid ia  it. The Abbe at once warned them not  to touch it, which made two of them  a:i the more eager to get it. .Both  drank out of the bottle, and in an hour  were dead. The .bottle contained javal  water, or a mixture of chloride of limo  for cleaning purpores. When the Germans retreated they took with them  30 aged men from 65 to 78 years of  age. They forced them to carry the  village spoils. None of them has returned or\beeu; seen or heard of since  then.  To Make Binder Twine  New Cordage Company at Calgary  in Ops-ration Soon *  Of vital interest, not only to Calgary, but to the whole of Western  Canada, is the announcement that the  Canada Cordage Company, capitalized  at a million dollars, -with sufficient  capacity to supply . western farmers  with 1,000,000 pounds of binder twine  per year will begin building operations at Calgary within the month.  Arrangements for its organisation,  proceeding quietly in tho city for  some months, are now completed  and the plant will be in operation for  next year's trade. The west, it is  estimated, consumes'30,000,000 pound.)  of binder twine yearly and has always  been faced with a shortage, in addition to ensuring a steady demand,  the establishment of the Calgary plant  will mean clnapcr twine, as long  freight haul from nearest competitors,  Wellarul, Ont, and Chicago, are eliminated.  Penalties  An ' order-in-council just, issued  shows tire penalties for violation of  the order against trade with Britain s  enemies. On summary conviction of  any one guilty of trading with an  enemy is liable to a term of imprisonment not exceeding 12months with or  without hard labor, or a fine of $2,000,  or both. On conviction on indictment  the penalty is five years, or a line of  $5,000, or both and the confiscation of  goods or money in respect to the offenses optional with tho court. When  a company is tho-offender, every director, manager, secretary or other  officer who is a party to tlie contract  i.--guilty of the offense.  Ten   Men With  Hands Cut Off  In a letter to his brother iu Montreal,  from  France,  Corporal  Stanley  Cooke, of tho Loyal North Lancashire  regiment, says:  "I have seen some bad .lights in my  life, but nothing to this. We brought  ten of 'our fellows over to England  with both hands cut off at the wrists.  Xor siiot off, but cut off."  German Food Supply  Authorities    Take    Measures  to   Fix  Prices and Arrange Distribution  Tho Bundesrath met at Berlin to  discuss ways ar-' means of conserving the food, supply for the. people  during the coming year, and decided  that, with certain expedients, the  grain supply would be ample -ntil the  1915 crop jad been harvested. The  mills will be allowed to convert  larger percentages of grain into flour,  10 per cent, of rye may be added to  wheat flour, and 20 per cent, of potato flour added to rye.  It was also decided to prohibit the  feeding of wheat and rye to live  stock, whereas heretofore one-fourth'  of the ryo yield was consumed la  this manner. It was further decided  to restrict tho amount of rye used  for distilling spirits to 60 per cent, ot  trie normal consumption. The hoarding of grain for speculative purposes  is prohibited, and compulsory Hellinri  under expropriating proceedings provided for. A scale of maximum price������  for grain was adopted. Tho maximum  price for ye is 220 marks ($55) ������  ton for Berlin, with a proportional  difference for other cities. The prico  of wheat remain; -10 marks hlghefr  than ryo.  Tho German Red Cross has re-  co-Ved a contribution of 150,000  marks ($37,500) from tho German-  Austrian Relief Committee of Cht  cago. A contribution of 200,000 marks  had already been received from :hl������  committee. ���������  That the admiralty is fully alive to  the necessity of providing a means  for the crews of warships that strike  mines or are torpedoed by submarine*  to escape drowning, since other war*  si*ips are prohibited going to their at-  sistance is shown by the announce*  ment that the rdmiralty is arranging  for a general Bupply of swimming collars (o be dis'.ributed to the officer*  and men of tho fleet.
