Two of them reached  the furnace room, where one of  them run jnto the foreman's oflice  and was wrecked. The one following piled on top of it. No one was  injured, but. had any one been in  the oflice at the time the runaway  cars made their unwelcome intrusion  he would have met with instant  death.  WILL RESUM!  Work is to be resumed at once on  tbe Yankee Girl and Yankee Boy,  situate on Hardy mountain, about a  mile from the western city limits.  W. J.. Campbell, the present owner  of the property, arrived in the city  this week from Republic, accompanied by J. S. Bedin, who will act  as his manager. Mr. Campbell has  since purchased a supply of lumber  for buildings at the property. A  wagon road will also be built from  the mine to the government road.  The property has an ancient and  interesting history. The two claims  were originally owned by E. Sprag- .  gett. of this city, and Mr. McGregor/  of Danville. These gentlemen sold  them to a syndicate for.815,000  each. Shortly after they passed'  into the hands of tbe new owners  they were tied up by litigation, and  for the past fourteen or fifteen years  they have apparently been forgotten.  Seventeen years ago, before   there  was   a   railway into the Boundary  country,   the   property   was worked  profitably.    Tbe ore  vras hauled by  wagon from the mine  to   Bossburg,  and from that point it was shipped  to the Everett smelter, which at that  time  was  the  only smelter  in the  Pacific northwest.    The ore shipped  is said to have given returns of over  $200 per ton.  The development work done on  the property up to the present time  consists of a 200 foot tunnel, connected by a shaft. The lead is not  very wide, but the ore is all high  grade, and with the improved smelting facilities in this country the  mine should prove a profitable investment to ne^v owner.  Mining Institute Meeting  The twentieth general meeting of  the members of the western branch  of the Canadian Mining Institute  will be held in Rossland on Thursday, July 15, when several papers  having special reference to the mining industry will be read. Members  are earnestly requested to make a  special effort to attend, and non-  members are cordially invited to be  present and take part in the expected discussions. Any members  intending to contribute papers are  invited to notify the secretary, E.  Jacobs, as soon as possible.  No Immediate Election  "The provincial   election  will   be  held     within    tbe     constitutional  time.    There   will   have  to be   an  election before April  next, and   the  question of holding a  general    election   of members  to the legislative  !assembly has to be  decided, constitutionally,   within   the  next     few  New Roadmaster ! months.

Following this, some steps could be  taken by the government in, placing  men on available land to develop Canada's virgin soil, lhat is only Waiting  for proper cultivation, and when properly farmed, would place us back.on  the basis of an export country, whero  we rightly belong.'

Freight boats  will no doubt"be available for any  such trade offering, although the service will be much slower than we have  been accustomed to of late-years; that  is, we may have to be satisfied with  a slower and less efficient service on  account, of the war.  ."rd.���������The "Made-in-Ganada" movement is bound to help "some trade, at  least in a small way. Our judgment,  however, is that in a very large measure, it is a hoax, serving only as a  blanket'to ba used by some manufacturers and dealers .to work off inferior stock. Canada as a great agricultural or manufacturing country will  never benefit by a purely "Made-in-  CanadS" movement until such time as  our. exhibits are first standardized, so  that- our products will be models of  perfection and efficiency. If the coun-  n-y in general is to permanently profit  by such a term as "Made-in-Canada."  '.here should be some government re-  itrictions placed on all export bearing  :his stamp.  ���������Illi.���������So far as we know, the ".Wade-  n-Canada" is being supported but not  D.y any. means in a general way.  There seems to be a lack of confidence, caused no doubt, by. the fact  :hat men have tried to commercialize  the patriotism of the public to the  'Made-in-Canada" movement. This has  certainly had a tendency-to make the  thinking public stop and wonder just  what their duty is to such a movement, and if loyal support given would  result in general as well as permanent profit to all or only to a few. 'We  reel sure that investigation would prove  our contention, that in many cases,  the one word "hoax", could be substituted for "Made-in-Canada."  .There is a need for bigger and better Canadian effort. Canada can and  should do more. Individual citizens  can and should do more, but let us  not trifle with such serious matters.  .More and better products "Made-to-  S.tandard," and many slogans could  mean more to Canadian products  abroad than "Made-in-Canada.". unless,  some government restrictions were  placed on the free use of the term by  the general public.  fitli.���������In several lines of our standard food products, we have "had a  marked increase over the-same period last year, but a decrease is shown  in our special or higher priced .pro-  duets, 'jjhis shows that the general  ���������public do ..not always buy thoughtfully, but rather base their calculations  on the supposition that eggs at 25c are  cheaper than eggs at 2Se per dozen,  and bacon at LMc is cheaper than bacon at L'l'c per lb. irrespective of the  food value or service that same will  render.  Yoii will at once note the connection  in the writer's thought re the necessity for standardization. This is essential before the unthinking or uneducated public carr buy and be safeguarded agaiirst.���������"This is just as  good and so much cheaper."  Gth.���������Despite the .fact that conditions are somewhat upset at the present time, Canada's future opportunity  lies in her ability to grapple with her  commercial conditions now and within  the next six months. There is bound  to Ira an increased demand for food  products. These will have to be produced before they cau be marketed.  Much planning and .careful preparation is necessary to increase production. Before farm production can be  increased economically, the farmer  has got to secure sufficient help at  iU value, arrd this he has not been  able to do during the last few years.  The greatest reason why the farmer  has not been able to secure sufficient  help at its value during recent years  is that, large contractors and corpora-  W. N.

This can be accomplished by making  each one responsible for the spread of  noxious weeds from his farm or some  such measure.  We have tried to give you our views  as clearly as possible, feeling that the-  Journal of Commerce can do much in  meeting critical conditions, and inasmuch, as the future success of any  movement always depends very largely on its present policy, we feel that  you can render special service by securing the view points or outlook of  ���������commercial houses, and presenting  such to your thinking patronage. In  your good work, fighting in this way  the battles of your empire at home,  we wish you every success.  Yours faithfully,  (Sgd.)       JOHN 1. BROWN.  Sales  Manager.  Poultry Pointers  Four Rules to Follow in Order to Secure  Maximum   Egg  Production  Egg production depends on four  things and if any of these four be  absent, maximum egg production need  not be expected, says a new bulletin  from Purdue University Agricultural  Kxporimcnt  .Station.  .1���������Tiic ucn must be bred to lay,  that is she must have that invisible  inheritance that gives her capacity  and ability to lay. Some people call  this "an inborn tendency to lay." This  means that the breeding will have  more-in.'luii'ce. than the breed. Breeding surely tells.  2���������The hen must be physically  strong enough to withstand the drain  of heavy egg production, and the  chances of disease. She must be able  to withstand the abuse that man generally gives her by making her environments unnatural, be able to lay  a large number of eggs when prices-  are high, and produce h'atchaule  germs when the incubation season arrives. Constitutional vigor is of "-first  importance, and though, the hen be  well-bred, , if she has some physical  weakness that is either hidden or apparent, the' results will be unsatisfactory.  3���������The hen must have suitable environmental conditions, such as housing, yarding, condition of range, etc.  The house is the home of the' hen,  and as such should be comfortable.  Dampness, draft and poor ventilation,  all retard egg production. A small  yard or bare range is not conducive  to success.  A���������The hen makes eggs out of the  food given. She depends upon it and  must have it in large enough quantities to induce rapid growth and large  production. A hen cannot lay well  on just any food that may be given.  This has been demonstrated too many  times on the farm and at experiment  station.  Egg production is one of the chief  aims of the poultry raiser, and it is  for this reason that these four tilings  are mentioned. They are given in the  order of their importance. The bird  itself must be the first consideration-  From answers to questions sent out  over Ihe state of Indiana it was seen  that the market side of the question  is the most, important phase of farm  poultry. A few people find it profitable to sell stock and eggs for fancy  purposes, but the commercial side is  by far the most popular with the farmer. Poultry is a. side issue on the  farm and a part of diversified farming,  but there seems to be a rapidly growing sentiment to make the hen have  a more important position than she  has had in the past. This is proven by  Hie statement that 101 out of 70-1  keep poultry as an important, means  of livelihood. -.'

Taube   Originated   From   Indian   Leaf  The Taube aeropla're  was invented  by an  Austrian.  When in India he noticed that the  loaves of the zanonia tree, as they  fell, floated for a long distance before they settled. This he found to  be due to the peculiar shape of the  leaves, aud the wings of his aeroplane he constructod on a similar  principle, whilst the body he finished in Ihe-shapa of a dove.  The German war staff approved  and improved thj design, and adopted it for military, use by sheathing  it in steei and adding to its dove  shape the vulture's habits.

The great  beauty   of the   instruction    at   these  schools  is  that" not''ing_ is  attempted  which a boy may not later do on his  own   farm -if  he   have  patience   and  perseverance.  , The girls _who attend these schools  are not only" receiving instruction in  domestic science, 'dress making, .and  laundry work, but they are receiving  exactly the same instruction as the  boys in poultry raising, horticulture  and dairying.  While the schools are closed during  the summer, work iu connection with  the schools bv nc means ceases. The  dairy competition which was carried  on last year is this year being increased to herds of three cows instead of individuals, and a very largo number of  students 'have entered the competition. The prizes given for these competitions are pure bred stock, and the  successful competitor can choose a  calf, pig or sheep. Last-year :(0 young  animals were distributed in this way.  The competitions rre open to both  boys and gn'hs. and last year one of  the successful competitors was a girl.  Another competition that is being  carried on is that of growing alfalfa  seed. Three prizes are offered���������$25,  $15 and $10���������for the best bushel of alfalfa seed to be delivered in 1816. Already 74 boys have entered this competition, and they are scattered all  over Alberta from. Cardston on the  south to Vermilion on the north. None  of this seed will be grown under irrigation.  The money for these prizes was  donated by several of the large lumber  companies in Alberta. The head of ona  of these companies, noting how much  was being said by the Bankers' association about mixed farming, went to  the Hon. Duncan Marshall and asked  him if there was anything that they  could do to help. Mr. Marshall seized  the opportunity anr. told the.lumberman that be would like $150 to distribute in prizes for the growing of alfalfa seed. This would'be $50 for each  school divided as above. The lumberman went away and came back in a  few days with the money. While so far  no girls have entered the competition,  it is open to them shoilld they wish to  do so.  During the summer a number of  special women institute meetings will  be held, and the instructors of.'domestic science from the different schools  will seek to bring the advantages of  these schools directly home to tha  mothers of the province. In addition to  this there will be a demonstration  train which will give special attention  to the newer lines of railway, particularly in the northern part of the province.  .Alberta, is not to be without its  agricultural college, however. An agricultural college section of the university will open next October with a competent faculty. This will give an opportunity to the boys'who wish to. go  further than the two years' course of  the agricultural schools, to obtain adequate training and obtain a degree. Dr.  Tory, the head of the university, has  been'very keen on this for some time,  and already a dear, of agriculture in  the person of E. A. Ho ves, B.S.A., has  been selected.���������Free Press.

Women who Work on Farms  Female Workers Employed on Farms  In Scotland  ���������In   Scotland     womc.i     agricultural  workers aro a fairly numerous body.  According   to   information   bas;;d   on  tho   1911  census,    there, were   1-1.997  women  employed  on  farms  in  Scotland.    The    women    outworkers    in  Scotland  are almost  exclusively confined  to  the  counties    south  of tha  Tay.    In   the  "northern counties and  the Highlands the women relatives.of  the crofter or small farmer may bo  seen  at  work  in  Ihe  fields,  but. except  al   the   turnip-singling  and' the  potato-lifting season the hired female  outworker is practically unknown, in  most    parts  the  self-binder has  dispensed with female labor on the harvest  lield.    South  of  the  Tay,  however,  women are employed at different kinds of work. They .work in the.  fields along with  the    men,    gather  weeds", spread farmyard .manure, and  hoe  -and single ��������� turnips.    At potato  gatherings,    pulling and  storing turnips,   rilling  turnips   into  carts,   and  other jobs they .also take theiiv part.

Genuine must bear Signature  Fillers  and   Egg   Cases  Should  Not  Be  Used  The Dominion Live Stock Commissioner, Mr. John Bright, sends out tho  following:  I am informed that the. quality of  millions of dozens of eggs is seriously  impaired each year and many eggs  made absolutely worthless through  the use of dirty, filthy egg cases and,  fillers.  Tho.season is al hand when every  case that can be hunted up is ordinarily put into use to move the increasing supply of eggs. Marry of theso  cases will have been'stored* in damp  collars or warehouses or perhaps left  out In tho open since last season,  with th������ old fillers and pads left in  and perhaps without even the bad or  broken eggs removed.  It is important, therefore, that all  egg dealers insist that their shippers  should not use filthy, musty egg cases,  nor soiled, damp or musty fillers, and  also that the excelsior or other material used for padding be clean and  sweet.  Considering present conditions and  -the fact that Canada's reputation with  respect to eggs dependent upon the  quality of Canadian eggs that go into  storage this spring, it is the duty of  every Canadian engaged in the egg  trade, whether farmer, collector,  country storekeeper or produce dealer  to see that the eggs marketed during  the next two months are of the highest possible quality and that they are  stored in the best possible condition.

The late Duncan Ross, whose  tragically sudden death took place  on Wednesday, was taken while at  the zenith .of his powers and with a  career of great promise still before  him. Not that his life, as far as it  was permitted to run, was barren of  achievement. Ardent of temperament and overflowing . with energy  and enthusiasm, Mr. Ross commanded success in every field of enterprise in wbish he elected to exercise his talents. Pie was an enthusiastic, newspaper man. Elected a  member of* the house of commons  while still a ��������� youth compared with  the great majority of his fellow-  members, he made a mark there by  the vigor and originalityof his debating powers and the sturdy independence of his opinions.

These   vacant  lots are  often    nothing   more   nor less than  nurseries und breeding places for all  kinds of weeds.    This is  especially  true of towns where large areas   adjoining    have     been    subject     to  wildcat   sub ii-'isioning    and   have  had.  roadways   ploughed,   forming  lodging places for  weeds, which are  allowed   to   grow   unmolested.    So  f r bulletins, articles and advice pertaining to weed  control'have   been  directed at tbe farmer.    A glance at  ihe conditions found in most of  our  citiesand towns will prove  convincingly that the farmer is not entirely  to blame in the matter, of weed seed  production  and    distribution.      In  the west the weed inspectors are  beting  trained   and   instructed   alonjr  lines that will enable them   to assist  the farmers in   weed  control,  while  at  the same  time provision by law  is made to prevent any farmer from  allowing his farm to become a breed  ing place for weeds and a menace to  bis neighbor.    In most iowns there  are bylaws covering the weed   problem, but too often they are  not   en  forced.    Those living in towns and  cities should co-operate and do their  bit in the war against   weeds.    This  is an important   matter, and should  venomous behind tbe blows of Duncan Ross.    He participated   prominently   in   many   a  vigorous campaign,    but   he   was - personally so  generous,   open-handed     and   big-  hearted, so free from the petty qualities-   that   tend   to embitter public  life, that   his   opponents   respected  and esteemed him.    There   are   no  expressions   of  appreciation of   bis  fine qualities as a man or a genuine  regret   at   bis   untimely   end more  generous than those of his erstwhile  political   adversaries     The suddenness of the blow,    while   a   terrible  shock to his family and friends, may  be   softened   appreciably by the affectionate tributes trom  all   sources,  in some instances from   unexpected  quarters,   lo  his   memory.

THE COUNTRY I  CAN COUNTRY TOWN BE SAVED FRQM   DECLINE  Prof. A. R. Mann, of the New York State College of Agriculture,  A Careful Observer, Considers the Problem in the Com-.  munity Aspect', in an Article for  the Banker-Farmer  Cross Appeal  *mers  Wag-  By country town we mean the rural  Tillage, town or city that depends  primarily on its agricultural background, that lives largely on the sur-  < rounding country. It is the settlement  of a few hundred or a few thousand  persons^ hemmed in on all sides by  farms and reached from all directions  . by roadways that lead out into the  open country and over which much of  Us'trade travels: .The question,'of the  relation of this settlement to its land  basis, to its .trade area, is now recognized as one of the immediate issues  In country life progress.  Much  of the  traditional separation  between town and country is due to  what we may call natural causes; -re-  resulting  from   the  conditions  under  which the towns have developed. The  town has its separate political organisation, its  own government, its own  enterprises   to   support   by   taxationj  from within, and it lias been interested mostly in its own development by  attracting trade, seeking to establish  unban  industries,   and   cherishing  an  ambition to become a third-class.city.  The   corporation   line'    has     been   a  boundary between town and country,  with  the. tide of-trade flowing from  the  country  to   the  town -without  a  counter-balancing movement from the  town out into the country to develop  its resources and foster its life.   The-  resources OX .'the country have built up  )   tho trade of'the town; and the public  -improvements      resulting   from .this  wealth    have- been largely .'applied to  the betterment of the town itself. The  material resources of the country have  crossed the boundary info the tow:-;  and now for some time the human re-  sources, good farmers, have been contributed to the upbuilding of the town.  Not  infrequently they', too, have become town-centered and neglectful of  the interests of the farms which gave  them  their  competence.  The  farmer  has "come to feel that the townsman  Is   selfish.���������that  he  seeks  the' major  benefit from  a transaction by fixing  the price both on what the farmer has  to sell and on what he has to buy. Of  course this is true only in part;  but  It is a cause of separation and points  the way fo a ncected readjustment for  the  establishment of confidence.    At  bottom, the separation-is founded on  economic reasons.  Director Bailey and "others have  well said that the solution is to make  the country town a real part of country life, and to develop one program  for the .upbuilding of both town and  country. The life of the town cannot  be separated from the .life of tho  country, and it will be impossible ever  to fully energize country affairs un-  less~the towns are considered equally  In the process. The interests of town  "nnd country merge and cross. The  towns are the cross-roads of trade, the  , tying centres where the business interests of all the farmers in.the trade  area head up and thus give employment to a certain population. Th*  .average country town'is primarily an  agricultural distributing point, for the  distribution of supplies and provisions  to the farmer on the one hand, and for  the shipment, assortment, or manufacture of the farmer's products, on the  other. If the farms are. thrifty, tha  towns are thrifty; if the farms are  unthrifty, the towns are likely to be  dead. The ''thrift of the farms is: the  Boul of the business life of the towns.  The country town has ho outlet or escape except through the'country. Its  commercial  activities    largely    take  their color from the type of farming  that goes on about it The interests of  town and country, while in some measure'opposite, are essentially one; their  commercial life is largely one. The  business interests���������the merchant, the'  banker, the manufacturer, and all the  rest���������must become alert to the necessity for creating fair and adequate relations with the land population in  their own trade area in.the interests  of their own greatest' ultimate gain.  But again, equally important from  the country standpoint, is the fact  that the open country; cannot develop  any' substantial and permanent community life apart from a town or village -centre.-We may say what we will  about the open country having its  own community life apart from the village; but it never will, except for an  occasional specially inspired and usually short-lived example. The farmer's community centre will, be where  he trades; and that is where his"community life and spirit will head up. If  a' school or a church out by the roadside is made a real community centre, where there is vital community  life, it will soon find itself surrounded with stores, blacksmith shop, post  office, houses; and a village will have  sprung up. The farmer's community  life will be.found in the place where  he must of necessity go frequently  and where he. will meet other farmers; and he is. too busy to go often  to a place that is off his beaten path of  trade. We shall have to accept the  fact that whatever genuine community exeprience the farmer has he will  get at the cross-rouls of his trade, in  the town.  . If we accept this 'as true, then the  program for the development of town  and  country  together  must   include,  first of all,  better co-opeTative  business   and   commercial   relationships;  but it must extend beyond these and  must affect (he attitude of the schools,  the churches, the libraires, and most  of all the townspeople themselves. The  farmer must he caused to feel that he  is    part with the town and that his  farm  is  one of the real-enterprises  of the-community, making its definite  contribution to the community structure.   The town school will make provision .for adequate training for'children from the farms that naturally centre-in the'town.    The.farmer will be  attracted to the town church' instead  of staying home because of any feeling of inequality or distinction.-   The  village library will extend itself into  the country by means  of the parcel  post or otherwise and become a community-serving Hbra.-y. Plans for civic  improvement will treat town and country as one problem and improvements  will reach out into the country. Farmers and townspeople will work shoulder to shoulder in  the movement for  good roads and for good railroad service.    The country fail', which is usually held  in" a town centre  and is  town controlled, will seek farmers on  its board of managers, and take on the  aspect of a real, helpful, stimulating  country fair.   The whole attitude will  change and there will be new incentives  for  development in  both  town  and country, and new plans will be developed.   The commercial interests in  the town will find iheir larger service  in making the town, and'all of its institutions   and   enterprises,  serve   to  open country and the town alike, and  thus create the confidence on which  all good business must depend.���������The  Banker-Farmer. ,'  Help For the Soldiers Who Are  ing a Great War For  Justice  Our country, with'its Allies, is waging a great war for justice,'for the  protection of small.nations in the enjoyment of their rights, for continued  and growjng freedom, and for the  maintenance of iLs pledged word of  honor. 'Much destruction and desolation are being caused. Lives are being lost "by the thousand. Canada's  first contingent is now in the thick of  it. Some will fall sick; many maybe wounded; some will pay the last  full measure of devotion to their  country and its cause.  The Red Cross Society exists to  succor.the sick and wounded in war.  The need of Red Cross Service is great  and-growing greater as the war goes  on. Tho price of progress towards  lasting peace is very, very dear. It  cost lives, horu-s, health and much  besides. Canada's part in the-prj-  cess of payment, through ^giving for  Red Cross work, is. mercifully light  and easy, even when all have given to  the extent of really feeling it.  The soldiers and sailors ' pay the  price exacted by* the' desolating struggle from week to week. ' What they  paid in .blood and did in sacrifice a '  month ago was not enough for them.  Shall we say it "was enough for us?  What they are doing and suffering and  achieving have put aside, for the time,  all their thoughts and plans for indiv-'  idual welfare, comfort and ' safety.  They don't hesitate to establish precedents. But they are precedents of  berbic sacrifice for our country and its  cause, for our principles and ideals  that they niay.be upheld.  Farmers, individually as well as  through their institutes, clubs and  cheese and butter factories, are in a  position to help- very greatly. Their  business does not suffer from the war.  Prices of nearly all farm products  have gone up. While labor is scarce  there is time to think of the hoys at  the front and to send the Red Cross  Society a .gift to be spent for the sick  and  wounded.  Farmers are generous In sentiment  and generous in giving when their  hearts and heads point the way. This  js a case when they do so point clearly, persuasively and urgently. In this  crisis, in the lives' of nations and in  the lives of stricken soldiers, none can  pray too much, do too much or give  too ranch..  I appeal to farmers to send me  sums from ?1 to $50, during the first  week of May. Every $50 provides one  additional hospital bed with the giver's .name over it. By sending me  about .$10,000, you would serve'your  country well, bring credit to yourselves and make all of us very proud  of you. For the sake of tho wounded  boys, make the gift substantial. It will  be an investment towards the recovery of some Canadian soldier who  stood in our stead that our cause  might be upheld.���������Faithfully your  friend. .Tas. W.

Barron,   of  Wall  Street Journal,   Shows   that  Economic  Reasons were Largely Responsible for the Outbreak of  Hostilities���������Many Problems"lo be Settled  "The  Germans have  at Berlin  tin  most'complete bureau of information  -to be found anywhere in the world.  They know everything and understand  nothing. They-had no-measurement  in Germany to gauge the soul of a  nation such as that of the British empire," declared Mr. C. AV. Barron, in  his address before the Montreal Canadian club recently.  Mr. Barron, who is head of the Wall  Street Journal, the Boston News  Bureau and the Philadelphia News  Bureau, has had unequalled opportunities to get at the real causes of the  .titanic struggle now taking place in  Europe. Through personal contact  with great financiers, world famed  statesmen, and from personal observation, he has compiled a wealth of information regarding the causes of the  struggle. Mr. Barron, who was a  member of the London Statist staff  long before Sir George Paish became  associated with it, has discussed the  war with Sir George, as well as with  many other great financiers. In conversation with Paish as to the duration of'the war, the "latter', quoting  Sir John French, said: "The ^Allies  have dug themselves into a solid  trench from Switzerland to the Channel and.all J Jell cannot get them out."  "I know," said Mr. Barron, "that Sir  George is a good churchman, but in  this instance, he .������-as talking sound  doctrine."  Mr. Barron in the course of his address showed conclusively that economic reasons were very largely responsible for the outbreak of hostilities. Austria was anxious for' war  and merely used the assassination of  her Archduke as an excuse, although in Ihe last analysis the ultimatum which was-sent to Servia was  changed by the Kaiser to make it impossible of fulfilment. Austria was anxious to dominate the Balkan States  and through them the Eastern Mediterranean. He also showed that a  commercial treaty . which Germany  forced on Russia during the Russia-  Japanese war and under which Russia  was forced to accept German goods to  her own disadvantage, was at the bottom of ihe struggle between Germany  and Russia. '  This treaty \va; to terminate in 1017  and whan Russia "a short time ago  approached Germany in order to secure an alteration of the conditions  she was emphatically told that the  treaty was satisfactory to Germany  and   must   be   continued     bv' Russia.  That was a year ago. Germany's answer convinced Russia that she must  fight and she began preparing for the  struggle which she knew to be inevitable. Germany, on the other hand,  had decided that the present was tho  right moment to strike.    .  According to her system of espionage, the British empire was on the  eve of a break-up- Ireland was about  fo rebel, Indian was ready to secede,  South Africa was disloyal, while Can-'  ada would be gobbled up by the United States. Russia she knew to be in  no condition for the war, but recog-  nized'that in a couple of years Russia would be ready. France was weak  financially, while Germany herself had  been preparing for years and deemed  the present the opportune moment.  ,r"Germany," declared Mr. " Barron,  "knew everything, but understood nothing: They had no measurement in'  Berlin which would guage the soul  of a nation like Great Britain. Thay  had no knowledge of the ideals of the  Anglo-Saxon race, a government that  serves the people instead of ono which  rules."  "You would believe the war was  worth while," declared Mr. Barron, "if  you saw the rejuvenated France. She  is a new nation. The frivolous lire of  her people is a thing of tho past. You  would be astonished if you saw England being vitalized and recreated.  "This war,1' declared Mr. Barron, "will  settle some thirty-five or thirty-six  problems, any one of which is almost  as great as the slavery question which  was settled by the American Civil  war. '  "The first great problem is, whether governments shall serve or rule.  The sac-redness of treaties -and the  right of small nations to exist as'  such, are i,ome or the other great problems which shall be settled by this  conflict. It may take ten empires and  kingdoms battling to settle the question because Germany has ideas that  can only be shot away, but the problems will be settled. It is In the  last analysis a conflict between the  Anglo-Saxon ideal'of government and  that of German "Kultur." The one is  service, the extending of peace and  prosperity and the general good ot  mankind; the other is, the spread ot  material power and the belief that  the road to happiness is found making  your neighbor serve you and not in  you serving your neighbor."���������Montreal  Journal of Commerce.  King* Albert as a Reporter  Germans  Need  Copper    i   Canada's Fighting* Force  "Der Tag"  British    Captain     Heard  the  Famous  Toast   Before  the  Outbreak of. ���������  War  Commenting on Admiral von Tir-  pitz's indignant denial of the report  that German sailors were accustomed to toast "Der Tag," a Hull master  mariner, iu an interview with the Central  News  Hull  correspondent,  said:  "Some time before the war I was In  command of a steamer at Tunis, where  there were three Germr.n steamers,  one of which was consigned to the  same brokers as mine. Consequently  tho captain and 1 met every morning  at the office, and I found him a courteous German sailor.  "One day I walked into the principal cafe for lunch and found there  till three German captains on the same  errand:* I was invited to sit down at  their table, and was introduced to the  two stranger captains, with whom 1  passed  a  pleasant  half hour.  "Before leaving, one of tho Germans  stood up and drank the toast in .German, the other two joining him.  "You know what it is, captain?"  said my German friend.  " 'Oh, yes,' 1 replied. 'It is "To the  Day.' "  "He half apologized, and remarking,  'Well, it ought not to have been drunk  before you.'  " 'Oh, It doesn't matter,' I said, 'Both  you and I and our young friend here  and told him to stop it.  "There are many other shipmasters  who must have heard that toast drunk  long before the war."  The Potato  It    Rivals    Wheat    as   an    Article of  Staple  Food  Although it is recorded that tho potato (Solanun tuberosum) was used as  human food more than a thousand  years ago, its-culture did not extend  beyond the boundaries of South America until about the middle of the sixteenth century. To Sir Walter Raleigh  is credited the introduction of the potato into England t.nd in 1586 it was  definitely known to have been grown  in Ireland., Since that time the cultivation of this crop has extended ove/  the civilized globe. So great has the  reliance upon it become that when  blight occurred in Europe'at various  times during tha past three-quarters of  a century, the failure of the crop was  attended by serious famine conditions.  The potato has acquired a positio:..  next to wheat, for human consumption  in the annual field crops of the world  and enormous quantities are utilize.!  in the arts and for stock food. The  world's crop of poUtoes exceeds tiiat  of wheat by some two billion bushels.  Valuing wheat at one dollar and potatoes at fifty cent, per bushel, the  world's crop in 1912 may ha set down  r.t an approximate worth of $;i,800,-  000,000    for   wheat and $3,000,000,000  Who gave the toast will all be dead be- ! for Potatoes. Last year the figures for  fore that day comes, if it ever does   Canada, for wheat 161.2SO.000 bushels,  valued at $196,418,000, and for potatoes  come.  "At that the young German captain  got Into a rage and exclaimed:  . " T   am   just   out   of  the   German  navy, and I believe we could    do it  now.

Old Lady���������Gracious; Fancy your  watch striking as loud as that!  Visited  United  States and Canada  in  Search of Information  'When King Albert of Belgium, as  Prince Albert, put aside his title and  became a newspaper correspondent,  he travelled a good deal, visiting  France, Austria, Britain, Scandinavia  and the American continent/including Canada. ��������� -- .  lnN this way the democratic prince  was able to study the commercial advantages of other countries, as well  as broadening his views and educating his mind. In order that he should  not be recognized during his expeditions King Albert grew a beard, wore  glasses, and trimmed his hair in a  new way. His disguise was so effective that many of his countrymen  whom he was a familiar figure passed  liim without recognition in. the various towns he visited.  The royal reporter seriously worked at the profession he adopted. In  the "United States he was employed by  a Minneapolis newspaper at a salary  of $15 a week. The king's employers  were quite unaware of his identity,  and when he returned with poor  "copy" he was as badly hauled over  the coals as were his less aristocratic  colleagues. A story is told by his  conferes of the way he endeavored to  obtain copy.  Whilst orr a Brooklyn newspaper  Albert wanted entry into a house  where a murder had taken place, lie  was stopped by a policeman, who demanded his card. The blue-blooded  reporter did not happen to have one,  so the representative of the law  roughly ordered him off.  A rival reporter who noticed lire  incident afterwards went up to the  policeman and said, "Do you know  that man you were speaking to was  Albert, Prince of the Belgians?"  "Well," answered the unenlightened  policeman. "Mr. Prince should havo  shown his card, for I've uever heard  of that paper."  In his reporting days King Albert  volunteered to write on any subject  connected with sport. As an all-  round athlete he was especially qualified as an authority on outdoor  games. He can box, fence, ride, shoot,  and swim. There are few subjects  on which King Albert could not write  a, good article. He has a knowledge  of metallurgy, mining, shipbuilding,  motor cars, and aviation.  and  Shells Are Now Being Gathered  'Re-used by the Germans  How long will 5,000,000,000 cartridges last in a war of the size of the  present one? How much copper has  Germany on baud from which'to make  new cartridges for the infantry rifles  and machine guns, and drying band:-,  for the shells of all sizes? Great  Britain has declared copper contraband of war, and is trying lo stop its  going to-any port whence it might  reach Germany. Other things might  end the war more speedily, but when  the supply of copper quits then the  war quits likewise. The Germans are  reported to have had nearly. 5^000,000,-  000 ritle cartridges on hand when war  broke out. They probably have 4,000,-  to<| 000 ��������� men'under arms, possibly more  They have thousands of machine guns,  each of which eats up cartridges as  fast as a whole infantry battalion.  Twelve hundred and fifty rounds per  soldier, excluding the machine guns,  and the 5,000,000,000 cartridges are  gone. Without doubt the Germans are  reduced already to picking up the fired  cases when it is feasible to do so.  Trench fighting is particularly well  adapted to this purpose, while from a  machine gun the ejected cases are  thrown so uniformly that a basket  would catch practically all of them.  The German cartridge cases are not  well adapted to being reloaded. The  American government reloads the  fired rille cartridges, and the requirements specify that each case must  stand 20 such'reloading:* without splitting or giving away at any spot. Hundreds of thousands of fired cartridges  are reloaded by the United States  army each year, because while the  complete loaded cartridges cost :.''.{.  cents, the case itself costs nearly 11.������  cents, a saving of 60 per cent, through  reloading.  An easterner who had bought a  farm in California had heard of his  neighbor's talent for raising large potatoes, so sent his farmhand over to  get a hundred pounds.

The chauffeur began  operating on his machine. He turned  and twisted it, and banged it, and  screwed it, but to no avail and still  the cabby spoke not. Then the chauffeur wiped liis brow and the cabby*  still with Ihe gleam in his eye, crossed  over. "'Ere," he exclaimed grimly,  holding out his whip: " 'ere yer are.  mister, 'it 'im with this."  An old soldier after leaving the British army wrote to his colonel in the  following tonus: "Sir���������After all I've  suffered, tell the army to go to hades."  A week or so later he received a reply in the usual official manner  ���������Any suggestions or inquiries  the movements of troops must be entered on Army Form 137, a copy of  which Is enclosed."  ; "Sir  as to  Dominion   is   in   the   Fjght  to   See   it  Through  "Our fathers refused to submit to  the tyranny of their own kings; their  sons will not submit to the absolutism  of an alien king. Our fathers won  for democracy her earliest and most  lasting triumphs; they gave their  lives to secure these privileges, if  their sons are worthy they will freely  give   their  lives  to   preserve   them."  The above words of Mr. N. W.  Rowell, K.C, summed up his eloquent ,  address delivered before the Empire  Club on "Democracy v. Militarism."  After comparing the conflict in Germany and Great Britain, the speaker  said that it was Oliver Cromwell who  settled once and for all against the  divine right of kings in England.  "The path of liberty for the German people lies in the overthrow of  militarism, and the only path of liberty to us rests in our pressing this  war to a gloriou:; conclusion. The  motherland has three million men  under arms, and if we in Canada had a  proportionate number enlisted we  would have at the present moment  350,000. to  500,000 men  in  training. ,  "What an inspiration it would be to  the heroes In the trenches, to the  mother country and all portions of  our empire, and to those who are now  going to the front, if our government  were, in addition to all they have  already said and done, to cable to his  majesty's government in Great Britain that we would at once undertake  to send at least another 100,000 men  to the front, not to fill gaps, but as a  new fighting force, as an evidence of  our appreciation of the sacrifices  already made, and of our determination to help finish tho task. If  our public men ot all parties wero  to go through the country and tell the  people of Canada tho vital stake we  have in this war what a response the.  pnople would make to this appeal  Canada is iu this fight to see it  through."���������Toronto Globe-  Railways In Alberta  In the province of Alberta there is  now one mile of railway for every 125  .persons. The province guaranteed  bonds last year for the construction  of 2.4HG miles of railway, Of which  there are irow completed and in operation 1,230 miles, and 347 graded, and  ready for track-laying.
