C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 1916  $1.00 PER YEAR  The first business meeting of the  1916.city council was held on Monday evening. Mayor Acres and  Aid. Allen, Donaldson; McArdle.  Schnitter and Sheads were present.  A communication from the headquarters of the Salvation army in  British Columbia, at Vancouver,  asking foj a yearly grant, was ordered to be filed.   .  Dr. McCrea, of Victoria, in a -letter to the council, stated that he  had positions for two returned soldiers. Several other communications respecting returned soldiers  were read. They were filed for future reference.  The mayor reported that a joint  special meeting of the council and  the board of trade had sanctioned  the departure of the troops from  the city. The action was concurred  in by the council.  The mayor  reported  that during  the visit  of  Superintendent Fisher  and  Engineer McCuliough,'of   the  Kettle  Valley  line,  to  the city on  Saturday last, Mr. Fisher had asked  for a deed to that portion  of  Third  street situate between Bridge street  and   Winnipeg   avenue.    The subject was   exhaustively    discussed,  and  the clerk   read   the agreement  between   the   city and the railway  company and all the statutes  available  on   the  subject   of  conveying  puhlic highways.    The council  appeared   to  arrive  at   the same end  that the Lte  council   did, i. e., that  the city has no power to deed away  public  thoroughfares.    On   motion  of Aid. Donaldson, a committee, was  appointed to secure legal  advice on  the   subject, and the clerk  was instructed to inform the railway company of  the action   taken    by   the  council.  A committee from the board of  trade and a Mr. Emery, who is promoting a publication, to be printed  at the coast, advertising the Kettle  Valley railway and the towns along  the line, waited on the council and  offered the city advertising space in  the same at the. rate of 830 per  quarter page, or $60 for a half page.

The first name printed in each of  trie above committees is the ehair-  m������n of his respective committee.  The chairman of the finance com-  mittee requested the chairmen of  the various committees to bring in  their estimates for the current year  at the next meeting. _, He ad viced  tbem to make the figures as low as  as possible.  Two or three of the aldermen  made complaints that lately the  graves had not been completed at  the time the funeral cortege arrived  at the cemetery. The clerk was instructed to notify the gravedigger to  take pains to have the graves fin  ished at the time set for funerals.  Failing to do so, another man would  be appointed in his place.  The best method of collecting the  road and dog tax was discussed at  length, but no definite action was  taken.  Aid. Sheads gave notice that at  the next regular meeting he would  ask leave to/introduce a temporary  loan bylaw.  CITY SCHOOLS COrtTHlBiJTE 10  CANADIAN PATRIOTIC EUND  At a meeting of the teachers of  the public and high Bchuols of this  city, held on the 24th inst, it was  unanimously decided to pledge one  day's pay per mouth to the Canadian Patriotic Fund and to contribute  to other similar organizations'as  means and opportunity mighi present themselves.  A suggestion from the education  department, and approved by the  ooard of trustees, was also adopted,  namely, that the pupils tie invited  to deny themselves each month of  some little luxury or pleasure and to  donate the money thus savsd to the  Patriotic Fund. This was intended  as a purely voluuta:y self denial on  the part of the pupils, and it was  decided that no individual contribu  tion should exceed 25c per month.  The teachers will have published the  totals collected i>y each division, as  well as the average per pupil per  division, no names of tile pupils being published.   ^  The members of the Independent  Company of Rifles will give a farewell Cinderella dance to the people  of Grand Forks tomorrow (Saturday) night in the opera house.

BY BENEFITS W RISE II COPPER  Editor Grand Forks Sim:  Streetsville, Out., Jan. 17, 1916.  ���������I was Under the impression that  the prunes grown on Sunnyside  farm at Grand Forks bad never  come as far east as Toronto. This is  a mistake. Small quantities have  reached Toronto, but, from what I  have learned, that city would take a  thou-and times as many as the  quantity received so far, and I am  sure Montreal, Ottawa, Hamilton,-  London and other eastern cities  would give th-j undried prunes from  Grand Forks a glad reception if any  were sent to them.  1 give the following two cases  from my own experience as a proof  of this: While in Toronto I got my  meals at the house of a Mrs. Pen-  gaily. One day I happened to mention the British Columbia prunes to  her. Her face at once lighted up,  and she exclaimed, '"Oh! yes, the  undried prunes from British Columbia. I've got them for the last  two years, but it was hard to get  them, They were lovely, and the  stones were so small there far more  meat on tbem than on any other  kind of prunes." She said she had  burned the boxes, but that she felt  sure the name ''Sunnyside Farm"  was on them. She obtained one box  tioning the British Columbia-prunes  to Mrs. Kemp, she at once exclaimed: "I have seen them.- Mr.  Kemp brought some home from Toronto, but he could never get any  more, I never tasted anything more  delicious in ray life; and they were  so large, too."  It can plainly be  seen from these  two   instances   that   the    undried  prunes, from ��������� Grand   .Forks.would  meet with tpracitical universal welcome in all pur cities from   Victoria  to Halifax.   Mrs. Pengallyand Mrs.  Kemp are in no way different,in the  matter of liking fruit, from the great  body of Canadian  women, and, for  many years to come, it will be   unnecessary to dry the   prunes grown  at Grand Forks.    Millions   of   persons in all parts of Canada are wait  ing for an opportunity to   eat  them  in an undried state.  ������������������ Since the particular kind of prunes  on   Sunnyside   farm has met with  marked   success,   it   would   be the  height of folly to commence experimenting   with   new    kinds.     The  prunes grown there are  exceedingly  popular, and it is known that  they  *ill do well at Grand Foaks.    Why  should fruit growers grow any other  kind?   Those in  charge  at Suuuy-  Bide farm will, I am sure, be glad to  give advice.    I am surce, also, that  Mr. Covert  will be glad to  give advice to any  one writing to him concerning the right  kind   of   prunes.  Winnipeg,   Toronto   and  Montreal  will   take   every  prune that can be  grown   at Grand  Forks  for  many  years to come, and will   take   them  in an undried state  In  Toronto there was  a  grocery  just around the corner  from   where  I was living.    Tne grocer kept four  boxes of   apples   continuously   displayed in front of his counter.   Two  were from Wenatchee and one from  Yakima.    The fourth one was filled  with   Ontario   apples.      The   Wenatchee and Yakima   apples  looked  about  the same as the Grand Forks  apples, and had   a rapid sale.    The  Ontario apples   looked like scabbed  potatoes.    There   were   large   dark  spots, caused by disease, on the skin  in the apples. Such apples are to be  found   in   the   fruit stores and groceries throughout the city.   1 would  not   think   of   eating one   without  paring it, and taking a   good   thick  paring off at that.  I was in Toronto on Saturday. It  takes only fifty minutes to go to the  centre of Toronto from here. British  Columbia potatoes were selling at  $33 per ton in carload lots. Of  course they sell by the bag here,  but it amounted to $33 a ton. The  potato growers at Grand Forks can  easily find out what the cost of a car  would be from Grand Forks to Toronto. They can then calculate the  freight per ton by dividing the cost  of the car by the tonnage. Subtract  the   freight   per   ton  from   Grand  The recruiting meeting held in  the Empress theatre last Friday  night was .largely attended by the  citizens of Grand Forks. Mayor G.  H. Acres presided. He welcomed  the visiting officers to the city and  explained the objects of the meeting. Seated on.the stage were Col.  Warden, officer commanding the  102nd battalion, Lieut. Mackenzie,  Lieut. Tyner of the 172nd of Kam:  loops, Col. Glossop of Rock Creek,  Capt. Kirk' in command of the  Grand Forks Independent Company  of Rifles, Pte. McCurdy of Kere-  meos, W. M. DeCew, W. J. Cook,  H. L. Mackenzie and H. A. Sheads.  Mr. Sheads   reviewed   the   work.  done by the Daughters of the  Empire.    Miss    Mudge    sang    "Your  King and  Country  Need You," in  the   chorus   ol   which   the soldiers-  quartered  here,   some sixty   being  present at the meeting, joined   vigorously.    W. J. Cook  told of  the  work done by the Red   Cross  since  the organization of the society  laBt  July.    Pte.   Daly produced   much  merriment    by    his   rendition    of  "Tommy Atkins," and he was compelled   to   respond   to   an  encore.  Mr. Mackenzie stated that  the   response to the appeal for funds for the  Patriotic fund had been  good, and  asked  for  further'support,   as  the  more   men   sent   to the front  the  greater the demand   on   the   fund.  Two comic recitations were given by  Sergt.   Cave, followed   by   a   short  speech by Mr.   DeCew,   a  song   by  Mr. Tasker and a violin selection by  Miss  Kerman.    Capt.   Kirk   spoke  of the results of the recrniting at this  point.    Over   200 men had enlisted  here   and   gone   overseas.     Lieut.  Mackenzie  and   Lieut. Tyner   both  stated that they would  start  enlisting men   at once, and  appealed  to  the citizens, especially  the  girl", to  help   them   get   them.    A song by  James- Cadoo   followed.    Pte. McCurdy, who lost an eye at the front,  related bi-Texperiences as a   soldier.  Though   wounded, he was   still   in  the   ring   and   intended to go back  and do some more for his king  and  country.    Mr. McCurdy received an  ovation when he   came forward   to  speak.    Col. Glossop  called   on   all  young men who were  physically fit  and had no one dependent on them  to come forward at once.   Men were  still needed and now was the time to  enlist.  Col. Warden spoke at considerable length, and his words were followed   with   the.  closest  attention.  out what would be left for the Grand  Forks potato growers.

A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  CENTS FEE PLUG  The Farm Girl's Opportunity  Practical     Demonstration      That      a  Woman Can Mjke a Success of  Farming  In a talk with the farm girl Jaines  J. Jlill says: '  "A young woman who applies herself to* the study of what fanning really is and goes at it with iho same intelligence she would give to school  leaching has a freedom of life before  her which no choked city can bestow.  And it is gratifying to me to see that  many young women have come to a  realization of this, for,we find them in  the agricultural colleges, studying  dairying and cattle, going out into  the farm work; and opening successful henneries and squab enterprises,  raid even directing, numerous irrigation enterprises where -fruit is to be  cultivated, and the sheep and cattle  are to  follow.  No city in the world can be prosperous unless the farms are. When  you contemplate turning your back on  the farm to enter upon a life you do  not understand you are putting away  from youself a pot of gold, .to say nothing of the lost contentment and ree-  ���������lom of life.  Tho study of the clfeinical (production) values of various soils is one of  the best pursuits a girl can take up."  Air. Hill then tells this experience  of a farmer's daughter in a northwest  siate-  She had ambitions to become a  practical farmer. Receiving her grammar school education, she formed the  acquaintance of a teacher who had  the wisdom to-point out to her the excess in value of farm over city life.  This teacher gave her-elementary  and advanced books on soil chemistry,  and .had her address various farm  authorities, the country over on important farm topics. Step by step, as  this girl gained the information she  desired, she began to feel more secure of her ground, and finally felt  that she could talk freely to her father and mother.  She asked them to give her control  of a certain ten acre corn patch of  the farm that bad not thrived. She  asked if she might not use some-other new ideas upon this acreage and  was told she might. This corn acreage  had never been properly plowed, and.  after seeding, little cultivation had  been given it.  It had yielded thirty-one bushels of  corn to the acre, and, one season,  fifty-five bushels of oats to the acre.  The soil had been permitted to  "bake" at the wrong time of the  year, and the acreage was steadily decreasing'in value." The girl believed  the fault was not in the'soil but in its  care. Taking a farmhand, she had tho  field plowed six inches deep in September. She watched this plowing  herself, to sec that every inch of  ground was evenly turned and the sub  soil well broken. The held was then  left to itself until the following spring.  In the spring it was carefully gone  over again for planting, and seeded to  corn. As soon as the crop growth appeared, the girl took her lone helper  and cultivated the field.  She saw to it that the roots of the  corn were not injured- She kept the  lop soil broken up and the weeds out.  Once a week until harvest that, field  was cared for, and the yield was a  gain of nineteen bushels per acre  over the old yield.  The father and mother thought this  pretty good, but the girl kept on..She  began to fertilize her soil and to rotate crops, "until she raised a corn  crop of sixty-nine bushels to the acre.  The value of that'particular piece of  land went up thirty-five to forty per  cent., and the girl practically demonstrated that a woman could manage  [ho land and get the highest results.  Any young woman who has ability  enough to gain control of twertty  acres" of fair farm laud, taken from  her father or bought from others can,  between her books and her common  sense, wrest out of it, such a comfortable living as no city worker .can over  enjoy. The opportunity is one of  your own.  As one of long and hard experience,  permit me to say frankly to you���������the  city is not calling yon. It does not  want you. it docs not need you. The  city is not suffering for lack of people  or brains. Its groat hunger is for food.  Step to ill.? back door of your home.  Stand on the stop and look out over  the fields that, have not had one-half  the attention they deserve. They are  calling to you. They will reward you.

Telephone systems are good for anchored, balloons, but are out of the  question in aeroplanes or Zeppelins.  Wireless telegraphy has so-many.'difficulties and dangers as to: prove quite  impractical. ���������;"  The French are using -a very ingen-  ous method of signalling by, means  of soot clouds. An apparatus filled  with lampblack rests - near the .hand  of the airman, and when he presses  a lever sonic of this soot passes down  a pipe and is- discharged into the air  in a black cloud. The pipe is so delicately arranged that the clouds may  be small or large. The operator can  spell out the Morse telegraphic code  in the little clouds,/and they can be  read from earth.  The Germans have adopted what  they' consider a far more practical  mode of communication. Prof. Donath i:  has invented a system of signal mirrors, lighted by a very strong lamp,  which permits the airman to send his  messages and also to receive instructions in the day time as well as. at  night. The .apparatus is so regulated  that the operator may send a long or  short flash, thus utilizing the Morse  code or any other code which may  have been agreed upon.  The light in the little lamp of this  apparatus has a flash of 10,000 candle  power, and while it can be used for  only forty or fifty hours without renewing the burner, this is enough'for  all practical purposes. The power for  the light comes from a special seven-  celled    battery,    weighing   only eight  How  She   Classified   Him  .Mrs.   Atkins,   dissatisfied   with   the  number of times one man came to see  her cook,    spoke    to    her    about it. i  "When l'engagcd you,    Martha," she j  said,    "you told- me you had no man  friends-    Now whenever   1  come  into ,  J     find    the  same  man  the kitchen  hero."

By this method messages can be  flashed not only at night and in foggy  weather, but also in the daytime, in  clear weather.

When it is necessary to send a  written communication, such as a  plan of a fortification, as seen from  the aeroplane, the primitive method  of dropping the sheet of paper tied  to a stone has long been abandoned.  The airman is provided with a special  bomb in which the letter or plan is  placed.  He then drops the bomb, which is  so weighted that it falls sharp end  first. As the end strikes the ground  a trigger is released which sets fire  to a torch on top, and thus tho location of the bomb is indicated by day  or night.���������Tit-Bits.

The trouble  with those who are whimpering now,  and who are crying that wq are going  to be defeated, is that they lack this  proper perspective.

The piece is copper. It  was coined in Sweden in 1659, and has  an intrinsic value of about 2Is. As a  numismatic rarity it is said to be  worth at present at least $500.  It is a rectangular ingot with five  large round stamps "punched in it.  Each corner stamp carries the Swedish crown, wtih the date. Around  the edge is the'inscripition of-Carolus  Gustavus   X.,>the. reigning  king.  This coin . was struck at Avesta,  Sweden. When fresh from the mint it  foil overboard in the harbor of Riga,  Russia, from which a dredge brought  it vup ten years ago. Coins of' the  kind were called '-plate money." Sweden turned tliem cut, almost continuously for 110 years.  -Once 116 bronze cannon were melted down and turned into 86/7G0 coins;  .but the main purpose in minting the  pieces was to find an outlet for the  Swedish copper mines without depreciating tho value of the metal.  A Diving Projectile  To   Be   Used   on   New   French  Gun  to  Bury   Foe   in   Trenches !  The great French advance -which is ���������  to clear the German' invaders out of:  Belgium and Francs will be press set :  home just as soon as the army is sut- j  iicieiitly equipped with the new gun j  about which there- has.been so much ���������  talk of Lite in military circles. It is  understood 'that nearly the riumbi'i- j  required are now in readiness, 'ami  when these big guns are brought to!  the front they arc expected to make j  short work  of  the  Gannan  trenches.1  Special interest in tho character .of ���������,  these new guns,- which liar, not yet [  been officially disclosed, was aroused i  by the announcement regarding the J  diving projectile which is said to liavej  done so much towards clearing the j  soas of the German submarines. Ac-(  cording to announcements,' the now j  "Conau fuse," as it is called, is the )  most precious asset of the British ad- j  miralty today. The outstanding I'oa-}  lures of this fusa are described as follows: It was invented throe yours]  ago by an Irishman named Walter;  Conah, whose home is in Dublin. It j  can bo affixed to a shell fired from a i  gun or howitzer or to a bomb dropped I  from an aeroplane. In striking the '  water the projectile,, of .which., the  Conan. apparatus forms part, dives  and explodes at any pro-determined  depth up to 30 feet below the surface.  The shock of its' explosion under  water is sufficient to sink a submarine, usually by making it turn-turtle.  It is understood that a similar apparatus has been adapted and attached to the projectiles use'd by the new  largo guns. They will ba used against  the German trenches, and instead of  the difficult task of turning the soldiers out of these retreats, it is expected that the French will dispose of  the invaders by burying large? bodies  of them in  their own trenches.

I  THE GIFT OF INDIA  Is there aught you need that my hand withhold,  Rich gifts of raiment or grain or gold?  Lo! I have flung to the East and West,  Priceless treasures torn from my breast,  And yielded the sons of my stricken womb  To the drum beats of duty, the sabres of doom.  Gathered like pearls in their alien graves  Silent they sleep, by the Persian waves,:;  Scattered like shells on Egyptian sands,  They lie with pale brows and brave broken hands,  They are strewn like blossoms mown down by chance  On the blood-brown meadows of Flanders^and France.  Can ye measure the grief of the tears I weep,  Or compare, the woe of the watch I keep?  Or the pride that thrills thro' my heart's despair,  And the hope that comforts the anguish of prayer?  And the far and glorious vision I see,  Of the torn red banners of victory.'  When the terror and tumult of hate shall cease,  And life be refashionned on anvils of peace,  And your love shall offer memorial of thanks  To the comrades who fought in the deathless ranks,  And you honor the deeds of the deathless ones,  Remember the blood of my martyred sons.  ���������Sarojini Naidu, the Hindu Poetess.  - .Kut child is cross;- ���������  PEVEEISH, CONSTIPATED  Look   Mother!

Female Sniper  The capture of a Turkish woman  who had bean sniping with deadly  effect is mentioned in a letter from  Private PI. G. Brown of the 24th  Queen's Royal West Surrey Regiment.

More Failures Attributable to Lack  Experience Than Anything Else  The writer heard a well known  agricultural authority remark that the  "back to the land" movement occurred in thirty-five-year cycles, and that  we were now due to see many city  dwellers moving back ,lo the farms.  Should this be the case, the advice  from the Grain Growers'-Guide to people contemplating poultry farming  proves very timely  ' "While it would -be in vain to attempt to enumerate all the many  causes of failure iii poultry keeping,  it is well to emphasize from tiinc to  time common mistakes, several of  which generally mean, if not actual  failure, at any rate considerably less  profit than might reasonably be expected. That poultry keeping may  be conducted with profit requires no  verification here. Everyone, no matter what the station in life is, may secure a wonderfully good return in  proportion to the extent of his operations���������a return that is unequalled by  any other individual branch of farming.  "But to make the utmost out of this  or any other occupation it is absolutely necessary that every detail in  tho management may he turned to  advantage-' Perhaps mqre failures  are attributable to want of experience  than to anything eise. This does not  mean that unless one has 'had a  thorough training in poultry culture  one should not keep ������owls, or, if one  does, that failure is tlie inevitable  end. It is only when a start is made  on a very large "scale, without knowledge or experience, that failure is  almost sure to follow. The man who  starts with a.few fowl and undertakes  the work , himself gains experience  day by day, and when his establishment develops he is well able to face  any emergency thafr'may arise, and to  overcome difficulties that would entirely overwhelm tho man who had  started ^on a large scale with little or  no experience."  ow  - "Yes," said Mrs. Twickembury,  "they were very careful about that infectious membraneous croup.

At this critical moment up came an  army chaplain, who at once proffered  his services. "Men," he said, "I see  you are in difficulty. Can I be of any  help?"  "Vcs, sir," answered a burly sergeant fluently, a.s he mopped his brow,  "you can give us the greatest help by  making yourself scarce."  "Making myself scarce?" gasped the  chaplain, "Why. how ?"  "Ves, sir," broke in the sergeant,  "you see, we can't very well say to  the hor3es what they'd understand  while you ar������ about!"  WISE WORDS  A Physician on Food  A   western   physician     has  about food.   lie says:  "I have always believed that the  duty of the physician does not cease  with treating the sick, but that we  owe it to humanity to teach them how  to protect their health especially by  hygienic   and'dietetic   laws.  "With such a feeling as to my duty  I take great pleasure in saying, that,  in my own experience and also from  personal observation, I have found no  food to equal Grape:Nuls and that 1  find there is almost no limit to the  great, benefit this food will bring when  used in all cases of sickness and convalescence.  "ft is my experience that no physical condition forbids the use of Grapo-  iXuts.

"In cases of indigestion I know that  a complete breakfast can be made of  Grape-Nuts and cream; and I think it  is necessary not-to overload the stomach at the morning meal- I also know  the great value of Grape-Nuts when  the stomach is too wealc to digest  other food.

The Disease is in the Blood  and Must   Be  Treated  Through the Blood  There are almost as many ways of  treating rheumatism as there are- doctors.    Most    of these treatments are  directed at the symptoms and are considered successful if-they relieve the  pain   and the stiffness.   But the pain  and- the "stiffness-return particularly  if  the  patient    has  been exposed  to  dampness. This shows that the poison  was not driven from the system by the  treatment employed. .Rheumatism can  be relieved in a number of ways, but  there is only one way to cure it, and  that    is through  the blood, expelling  the  poisonous  acid  that  causes    the  aches, and pains and stiffness.   To renew and enrich the blood there is no  mediciue can equal Dr. Williams' Pink'  Pills--which go right to the root of the  trouble and cure rheumatism to stay  cured.    The following is an example  of what Dr- Williams' Pink Pills can  do in cases of this kind.    Mr. Henry  Smith,  St.  Jerome,  Que.,  says:   "For  upwards of a year I. was a victim of  rheumatism  in  a  most painful form.  The trouble was located in' my legs  j and for a long time was so bad that I  could not walk.    The suffering which  I endured  can  only  be  imagined   by  those who have been similarly afflicted.    Doctors' treatment did not "help  me and then T began trying other remedies but with no better results- Finally I was advised to try Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, and although I had begun  to lose faith in medicine, T -finally decided to give  L-the pills a trial.   I am  very grateful now that I-did so, for  after taking eight boxes of the  pills  the trouble completely disappeared, I  was  free  from  pain  and  could  walk  as  well as  ever I  ditf in my life.    I  have since taken the pills occasionally  as a precautionary measure and I cannot speak too highly 'in their favor.  You can get Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  through any medicine dealer 'or by  mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes for  $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co-, Brockville, Ont.

This is  the opinion of a prominent American  mining engineer -who has just returned to London after . spending six  months in the Russian empire, mainly  in Siberia/where he is the chief engineer of' an important group of  mines. Describing ' conditions in  Russia he said:  "The impression which' has prevailed outside Russia "during the  great German drive through Poland  was never really duplicated in that  country and the only thing that  could cause revolution now would  be the conclusion of an unfavorable  peace  with  the central powers.  "The Russian peasant is not an  imaginative individual and the  losses' suffered in the war have not  greatly impressed him. Even the  generally admitted shortage of rifles,  the wastage of which has been unprecedented, is not causing the Russians much'-concern as the staff has  realized the ride used by infantry is  not an effective Aveapor.. The Russian army is' now well supplied with  heavy guns and' munitions unci their  infantry is being supplied with  thousands of machine guns.  "For the greater part of the war  we have used Austrian .prisoners as  miners in our mines, but lately we  have   been   receiving   Germans   from  the government' , prisoners' labor  bureau.

Modern Artillery  Decline of Beef Production  it  in  of  Is Claimed That the Use of Steel  Manufacture of Guns First Tried  by" Frenchmen  The Paris Matin gives the story'  the     discovery,   which  Alfred  has  always  been  credited   with,  that  steel could bo mod instead of bronze  in   the   manufacture   of" guns.; It  appears, according to the French paper,  that iu 1S30 a ���������Frenchman of the name  of Pierre Ducroquet, the son of a soldier who had fought in the Napoleonic  wars, was cons'ideiir-g  of improving modern  w.hcn visiting Paris in  fred  Krupp in a cafe  of the  Palais  Royal-  tho possibility  irmamenls and  1836 lie met Al-  in the vicinity  Krupp at that  time,  great  was a manufacturer of no  importanc.-, employing about f>0  workmen/and was travelling in order  to gain more customers- Ducroquet  explained his ideas to him and started  a long correspondence with Krupp. In  lS-il he wrote "if the bronze guns  have not sufficient resisting powers  why not try and make them of a more  solid material," and in 1S45, "I can  find nobody here to believe in me. If  I only had the use of a factory to  make my experiments. I would give  all I possess to arrive at some result."  Krupp, who was then employing 200  workmen, replied to Ducroquet offering him, providing he paid his own expenses; the use of a portion of his factory and, moreover, the help of some  of his workpeople. The Frenchman  accepted and removed his family to  Altenessen. A year later, having  spent all his money on his experiments, Ducroquet announced to Alfred  Krupp the fact that he had at last  evolved the steel gun. Krupp, informed day by day by his workmen of the  progress made by the inventor, already realized the importance of the  discovery. He claimed from Ducroquet  the payment of a sum of 5,000 marks  which he owed him and in default  seized upon his invention. Ducroquet  brought an action against him, but  lost his case. He offered his invention  to the French minister of war, but it  was refused. In 1847 Krupp made the  same offer to .'.oth the German and  French governments and received an  order for 300 field pieces. The reputation of the firm was made.  Shortage of Labor in Great Britain  Newspapers are overflowing with accounts of labor shortage, following on  the success of Lord Derby's recruiting  campaign. It is conceivable that  Great Britain has from the standpoint  of efficiency sent neariy ail the troops  it can spare.  A point is rapidly approaching  where skilled workmen can serve  their country moi'o effectively at home  than at the front. Clothing, ammunition and all war materials are needed  at the front. Machinery is more effective there than men.  From military and naval standpoints factories must be kept running.  For financial comfort the country  must continue- manufacturing if it is  lo maintain its exports and stabilise  foreign exchanges- The latter is as  necessary to the successful conclusion of the war as the former.  Stock  Raiser is Sure to  Make  Money  During the Next Few Years  Some    interesting    information  regarding the beef industry is brought  out in  the last annual report of the  Krupp | Saskatchewan   department    of     agri-  ; culture.    Figures    arc given showing  I that  the   cattle breeding  industry is  'on the    decline   not only in Canada  but   throughout   the   world.   The decrease   in   the  : ..mbcr  of  cattle   for  one year in Canada has   been 9.3 per  cent.;  in "United States, 3.3 per cent.;  in Britain 2.1 per cent.; and in France  0 per cent.  This shortage, says the report, is  being acutely felt in the United  States. The total number of cattle  vcrj" j received . during the month of September, 1013, at the six leading cattle markets of the United States was  954.1S1 while during the same month  of 1014, only S14,9S5 were received, a  decrease of 130,196. It might not be  fair to take that as an average decrease, but cutting these figures .in  half we have a total decrease in cattle shipments for the year at the  above market of 835,176 head, or  roughly speaking 300,000,000 pounds  of beef. This has been estimated to  equal nine -beef cattle per hundred  people. This shortage on the above  markets has been in spite of the  great number of Canadian cattle going to the United States during the  past year, owing to the abolition of  the U.S. tariff. During the winter  of 1912-13 only 24,090 Canadian cattle were shipped south, while during  the following winter 17S,731 were  shipped.  The question may be asked, granting these figures to be correct, why  the price of beef is not higher. In  this regard the report states that  the'retail'price of all meats in Can-  iada today is approximately tho same  as in Great Britain, but whilst the  producer in Great Britain receives  from thirteen to fourteen cents per  pound for his choice beef on the  hoof, the Canadian producer seldom  exceeds seven cents for the same  class of stock.  It is no doubt true that labor is  higher in Cannc .. that cattle are not  as well finished, and on r.n average  do not dress out as high a percentage, that operating expenses are  greater all around; but when one  takes'into consideration tho fact that  the figures quoted are for the choice  article in both cases, there seems to  be too great a disparity in Canadian  prices. The average price of choice  beef per pound, live weight, during  1914, were: Montreal, 6.62 cents;  Winnipeg, 7.07 cents; and Calgary,  6.94 cents. The retailers' prices at  tho same time and in the same cities  were: Montreal, sirloin steak, 22.0  cents; medium chuck, 16 cents:  Win-  Benefits of  tion   Law  Tho state of Kansas has been for al-  ���������cnost a generation under a prohibition  law.' The law has frequently .come in  for criticism,   and   its   administration  has been subjected to more criticism  still.    A signed statement as to prohibition 'and   its   results   recently  issued  by  Governor Arthur  Capper is,  therefore,  of mo'i-e. than  ordinary interest and importance. In Mr. Capper's  opinion   the   pr.jl.ibito'ry   law   is   the  greatest  blessing   ever   bestowed  on  the state and the greatest instrument  in its prosperity.    The law has never  been  so   well   enforced  as   now,  and  has never been  so generally approved by the people of the    state.    Approval indeed, he says, is too mild a  word with-which'to express the attitude  of  the  people  toward  the  law.  Most of them arc enthusiastically in  favor of it- , This enthusiastic approval; has   good   foundation.     Kansas   is  the wealthiest state of the Union per  capita.    On  the  basis  of  wealth as-  sassed for taxation the average wealth  per capita in Kansas is $1,629.61. The  second state is Massachusetts with a  per capita wealth of $1,353.47, or nearly twenty per cent, less-    Kansas has  a much  larger  relative    number1   of  young men and women in college than  any other state according to the census of 1910.  .The percentage of illiteracy in Kansas is lower than in any  other state;in the Union except one.  Thirty-two   counties  in   Kansas   have  abandoned  their poor farms. c Fort y-.  eight counties out of one hundred and  live did  not  send  a prisoner to the  penitentiary! last year..  The per capita   consumption  :  ol liquor   in   the  United   States  is,, twenty-one   dollars  yearly.   In Kansas it is three dollars  and four cents; Kansas, says governor,  thus saves thirty-million dollars every  year  directly.     The  indirect, gain  is  not subject to computation, but it is  ���������certainly   greater   still-     During   the  last session the Kansas legislature, by  unanimous vote in both houses went  on record in a series of strong resolutions   telling   what    prohibition    has  done for Kansas and emphatically endorsing it.    No wonder the people of  Kansas have a patriotic love for their  state,   almost   religious���������not   to   say  fanatic���������in  its  intensity.  The  experience of Kansas is typical of that of  other   prohibition     communities.'   It  should be valuable as an object lesson  to. those that ars still seeking for deliverance   from   the     liquor     traffic.  There is not a doubt that prohibition  pays,  morally,     financially,    socially,  educationally   and     politically.     The  liquor traffic is the greatest handicap  from    which  our civilization  suffers.  Where it is done away -'with a hundred  problems   which   vex   the   head   and  heart, of   the   social   reformer,  solve  themselves"'-and   the   greater  part of  the.;��������� remainder are shorn of more than  half their  formidable  character.  STRATEGY OF GERMANY   FORESHADOWS  DEFE  \T  One of the Foremost British Writers on Naval Matters, says that  no War can be Brought to a Successful Issue Unless Those  in Responsible Positions   arc Given Good Support  War and Medical Practice  Movement  for  the   Nationalization   of  the Practice of Medicine  "Nationalization of the practice of  medicine" is the somewhat original  description by British labor. Delegates in San Francisco, of one of the  changes effected by war's necessities.  That the medical profession should  depend for financial success on the  prevalence of ill-health has always  seemed a defective arrangement or adjustment. The need of bread and the  desire of bakers for profits insure a  supply, but from this it is unreasonable to conclude that the ��������� people  should depend for medical service on  ths prevaleuco of disease and the desire of physicians and surgeons for  incomes.  Chinese are said to pay their physicians while in good health and to  cease payment when ill. An equally  reasonable idea underlies the appointment of a medical officer of health.  He depends for recognition and distinction on the good health of the  community he serves. He provides  certain lines of medical advice and  service to the general public. Medical service in the schools is a development in the same direction.  Smallpox is removed from private_  medical practice and treated under  public supervision, and there is a  tendency toward a similar transfer of  other contagious  diseases.  The idea that public health is too  important to be left to individual initiative is causing a change toward  the nationalization of the. practice of  medicine. It is strengthened by tin  pressing necessities of war. As in all  similar changes, the possibility of  wiser, more general, and more systematic direction is obtained at the cost  of the stimulus of personal ambitions  and rivalries and of exposure to the  danger of official dominance.���������Toron-  !-to Globe.  L. Cecil Jane, author of "The Interpretation of History," and one of the  foremost Britisn writers on na-;.l  topics, has written an analysis of the  German strategy in the present naval  war,, in the 1915 issue of "Fighting  Ships," edited and founded by Fred T.  Jane, which has just reacned this  country.  Under the title "Historical Analogies and the Naval War," he goes into  the points of strategy in detail and  .draws some interesting comparisons  between pastand present naval warfare. . :-  His article ends with this prediction:  "The strategy of 'Germany, indeed,  in the present naval war would seem  to foreshadow her defeat, always provided that it does not succeed in destroying the morale of Great Britain.  In this war British democracy. is on  trial. It may prove that it is true  that 'a democracy is incapable of empire;' or it may, once for all, falsify'  that saying. If it is to do so, it must  remember that no ..war can be brought  to a successful conclusion unless  those who are responsible for its conduct are given that confidence without  which no man can do his best. Every  man who preaches distrust of the admiralty is doing \,hat he can to insure  the triumph'of kultur, of that modern  barbarism beside which the barbarism  of the past is advanced civilization.'-'  In discussing the German strategy  Mr. Jane says;  "In the prese:"- war the military  strategy of Germany, has been obviously dominated by the ideal of concentration of force. The rush through  Belgium toward Paris, the later rush  upon Calais, Hindtenburg's thrusts toward Warsaw, the grand attack upon  the Russians in Galicia���������all afford examples of this conception. They were  all alike attempts to strike quickly  and hard. Actually the battles fought  l^ve partaken of the nature of protracted sieges, but the aim of the  Germans was undoubtedly to force the  issue, to inflict upon the enemy soma  sudden and overwhelming blow.  It may be suspected that their naval strategy would have been of the  same character had not circumstances  forbidden. The German fleet is a  modern institution, numerically inferior to that of Great Britain, without  that tradition of victory which might  counterbalance all material differences. Rightly or wrongly, the direc-  tors'of the German naval policy considered that it would be,rash to a degree  to provoke a decisive battle and being  practical men rather than idealists,  they abandoned or postponed the ideal  stratgey.   '��������� ���������: .  Indeed, tltey adopted guerrilla methods. Abstaining from any attempt to  force a fleet action, they have relied  upon the exercise of superior ingenuity and resorted to a policy of moral  and material attrition. Their immediate object is necessarily to establish  a superiority of force. Their ulterior  object is more disputable. It may  be their aim to pr-epare tho way for  the adoption of the ideal policy. A  series of blows, individually slight and  cumulatively great, might undermine  the morale and reduce, the material  strength of their opponets until at  last a decisive action could be fought  with fair prospects of victory. Such  is. the scheme outlined by Bernhardi:  'We should at first-carry on a defensive war���������that wo may in the end  challenge him (England) to a decisive  engagement on the open sea.' "  The question of: the German base at-  Heligoland and Cuxhaven is then  taken up, and Mr. Jane draws a number of interesting historical analogies  showing that similar bases, more impregnable,-if possible, hae been destroyed by the enemy in bygone wars.  Starting with the conflict between the  Romans and Carthaginians, he shows  how the Romans, after eight years of  warfare, eventually destroyed the "apparently impregnable base at'Lily-  baeum and Drepana."

A great  i deal   of this money has com 3 through  ! the Guaranty Trust Company of New  j York,    and    most of it has been immediately transferred to    the    Chase  National  Bank  and  other   banks    in  which   Dr.   Albert   and     Ambassador  Bernstorff keep a joint account."  The Journal charges that not one  dollar of this ''money has been spent  for legitimate purposes, but that all of  it is going for propaganda work of  the most vicious  description.  One item alone, the maintenance ot  bureaus for dragging men out of  munitions factories, amounts to many  millions of dollars. The cost of sustenance of the consrflar service of  Germany and the expanses of embassy  reach the various officials through  regular channels, which are in no way  connected with the fund referred to-  It is belieevd that the entire cost of  propaganda work conducted by Austrian consuls r.nd consul-generals is  financed  from  this German  fund  Five Minutes' Truce  Who Cried  A profound impression was created  in I ho British Mouse of Commons a  few days ago by the statement made  by the financial .secretary tc the treasury.  Mr. Montagu declared that every  citizen in the country would have to  be prepared to place at the disposal  of the stale at leant one-half of his  income, cither in taxatio . or in  loans.  We shall all have to stint ourselves,  he added, in regard to the consumption of commodities. The o.pfnditnre  upon luxuries it present is extravagant.  Rescued  Wounded -Sole  With   Joy  I heard a cry in front of our trench,  writes Sergeant A. E. Berry in a letter to his relatives. It was from a  wounded man on the German parapet,  he proceeds, and he was bogging us  to bring him in. He had been there  from the Saturday when the charge  was made until dinner time on the; following Monday, and was nearly dead  from his wounds and from hunger.  We knew wc could not go out to him,  but at last one of our officers who  could speak German shouted and asked the enemy if we might carry him  in. This was a brave act, for if we  only put our heads over the parapet  we were liable to be killed- The Germans shouted back and gave us five  minutes in which to fetch him. Immediately fifteen of us jumped over to  go to him, but our caplain ordered us  back, feeling that the Germans might  be tempted to shoot, thinking that we  were going to charge. So one officer  and a man went out with a stretcher  and carried the poor fellow in. He  cried with joy when he knew he was  safe, though ho was very badly wounded, While they were carrying this  man they saw another nearly covered  with earth. Two others went out and  brought him in, and then we gave  three cheers for the Germans who bad  proved 'they are not all bad.

But  it  i was not until lately that their haviga-  ; tion was put in practice.  Owing to the us'1 of the Trans-Siberian Railway by the Russian government for war supplies, there are  :������.0OO,('O0 tons of wheat 1 old up in  Siberia, besides enormous quantities  of other produce. If this can be got  out, i* will improve Russian exchange,  which is now a serious problem  among tho allies.  Next year the company proposes to  take about thirty steamers over tho  new White Sea route, laden with Siberian products.
