 Legislative Ivibrary^ -',  ,..������-= ;v ��������� y *"  Kettle Vailey Orchardist  rtFTEENTH YEAR���������No, ^6 q^]  GRAND FORKS   B. C, FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1916  $1,00 PER YEAR  The high price of sugar, due t0  the war, has . possibly led pome  economical housewives to consider  curtailing " the quantities of fruit  they will put up thia year. .  As   to   the general   question   of  economy,   it   may   be   pointed out  that while so. many   essential   arti  cles of food   have, risen  in price on  account of the war, fruit has   been,  and will be cheap as  ever.    There  will be,a decided   saving, therefore,  in using it to replace, as far as   possible, other more  expensive   foods.  It should be further considered that  war  conditions', have, greatly    increased the cost of  English jams, so  that  it  will   be  economy to replace  these   as   far   as   possible with the  home made j-uns and preserves.  , With regard to the' high   price of  sugar, why use  sugar at  all?    The |  prevalent idea that  fruit can not be  kept without 'the addition of   sugar  in the process'of canning  is quite a  mistake. If made into a thick syrup  sugar acts as an .antiseptic, keeping  ��������� perfectly ' sound fruit -from  decay  even without heat, but, in the quan  tities.ordinarily used  in canning, it  takes absolutely no part in the  preservation of the fruit from deteriora  tion.     Authorities   all   agree   ua  fruit put up without sugar   retain s  its   delicate   and   distinctsve flavor  very much better, and is altogether  superior to that put up in the  ordi,  " nary   way.    Of   cour.-e,   sugar will  eventually have to be used   in    pre-,  paring   the   fruit  for th-: table, b,ut  much less is required to  sweeter^ to,  taite after cooking.    This is so for a  well   understood, scientific   reason.  Our ordinary white granulated Js- a  -     ^ure cane sugar, and is the sweetest  of all sugars.   When cane sugar  is  heated in the presence  of  an :acid,  it gradually   changes     into   .other  , forms   of   sugar  having  much less  ^sweetening   power.    One of -these,  glucose, has only about 30  per cent  the sweetening power   of   pure cane  *<ugar.   ���������  ���������''." . ���������/ :~:i  All fruits contain more "or less  acid, and spall mixtures of fruitand  sugar tend, to lose some of their  swe<tnes8 in the process of cooking  On this ace mot, it is much mv.rti  economical to add the sugar after  the fruit is cooked, while this is,  also, the only way in which tbe full  characteristic flavor of the fruit can  be retained. Another point .worthy  of consideration is that  before  fruit  ��������� so preserved has to be used, it is  quite possible that sugar prices will  be normal again. There is nothing  to lose,thtrefore,a gain in the quality  of the preserves, and a probability  of considerable saving in trying out  the sugarless method.  To put up fruits without sugar,  simply prepare them in the ordinary way; see that the jars are perfectly clean, thoroughly scalded  with boiling water, filled to the top  and left in them a considerable  time; boil the rubbers and coveie,  and see that the rubbers are soft  and free from grooves or cracks;  place tbe fruit in the jars, fill with  cold water, place them in a boiler  tilled with cold  water, beat  to  the  reached. Large fruits, such as  peaches, pears, plums, cherries, and  the like should g������t 20 to 30 minutes boiling. A rK>ard should he  placed at the bottom of the boiler  to keep the jars from the direct heat  of the stove.  ��������� Fruit .thus prepared-will be.found  excellent for-piep, delicious for eating with c^eam, and generally superior to the sug-ir syrup   preserves  A party of prominent Tory  campaigners arrived  in    tbe  perior to the sug-ir syrup   prtisei vCr.. .city this morning from   Phoe-  lu properly air-tignt jars  it   keeps .nix, after stumping the Okan  Uurjin  and   Similkameen  dis  ,,. King. It is hope that all tbe  friends will be present, as this will  be tbe last opportunity of hearing  Mrs. King.  " The second truckload of ore from  the Union mine to Lynch creek,  went over the dump at. the rock  B'ide yesterday, the accident bnng  caused by the spreading of the  ���������-road; The truck contained two  tons of ore.    No one was injured.  quite as long.  OBSERVATIONS  In one ef his speeches in ^   town  west   of   here "Premier  Bowser advanced as a reason for the return of  the government  the  plea that  the  business of the   government   would  be carried on after the  election   ex  actly in theBame manuer as it is on  September 13.   Thia is exactly what  the electors want to avoid.   On S p-  tember 13 every' government official  and employee, from   Premier   Bowser down to the   humblest   road   la������  borer, will be out electioneering    It  would make a pretty state of affairs  to keep this up for five years.  If Sir Richard McBride has any  lolling time in the agent-geueral's  office in London, he might come  over to Grand Forks and put in--an  honest day's work cutting the noxious weeds on his city lot.  We are pleased to learn from the  Greenwood Ledge that having the  measles" is an innocuous, pastime:  "On(y two'soldiers are left in the  Forks. One has the measles, and  tne other is sick '' "  V*. The Sun has soruiulated a theory  that the heavy cannoning iu Europe has driven all the rain clouds  to this side of the Atlantic this summer.  "A Daniel come to judgment!"  A departmental document states  that married men spend more time  in"8~looiiB than single men, whereupon a fellow drunken in his own  wisdom points out that all   woes  of  mankind may be abolished by elim  * i        agan and   Similkameen  dis  tricts.    The  members of the  party  are  Premier   Bowser,  Hon.-Lorne  Campbell,   Hon.  Geo. Manson, Hon. E. Miller,  and Mr. Thomson of Victoria.  This afternoon   these  gentlemen journeyed to Cascade and  Christina lake for the purpose  of interviewing   the   electors  of   these   places,   and    also  to  feel  the political pulse of  the road crews enroute.    Tonight a public meeting will be  held in the  Empress theatre,  and it may be taken for granted that the speakers   will  be  able to invent some plausible  excuses   why    the    machine  should be given  a new lease  of power.  Mr. Burr and family made a motor trip to Rock Creek .on Sunday.  They were accompanied by Mr. and  Mrs. Irving and Miss Amy Heaven.  They visited with Mrs. Peck and  Mrs. Mesker in Midway.  W. P. O'Connor, who has been  employed at the Granby smelter for  a number of years, will leave on  Monday for Vernon, where he will  join the 225th battalion.  IMlIlffl  In a letter to The Sun man A  1ST.  Mowat,   at  one time" a  member of  The Sun staff, and who   left Canada  with   the   202 nd  battalion,   writes  from    Bordon    Camp,     Hamspire,  England:    "This is  a    very   large  camp, where the Australians, South  Africans, New Zealanders and others  are  training.   The number  I  dare  not   mention.    We   are    stationed  about four miles from   what   is   left  of the 54th camp.    I   have  spoken  to   many    who   enlisted   at  Grand  Forks aud vicinity.    They were   all  eager for   news.    All our   boys   are  well and enjoyed the trip across   the  continent and   Atlantic,   and   especially    did   we   enjoy   the journey  from Liverpool   to this place, about  fifty   miles  southeast  of    London.  The funeral  of  Victoria   Parent,  aged   10, daughter of   L.  Parent, of  Billings, was   held in this citv   last  week, the services  being  conducted  by   Rev.   Father   Pellitier.    Those  who  accompanied  the   remains   to  this   city   were   Mr   and  Mrs.   R.  Davis, Mr. and Mrs. Albert   Jeffers,  Mrs. Aodgan   and  son   John, Mrs.  W.

Handy,   Cascade; Mrs.  Joseph Parent, Nakusp."  J. T. Martin, a mining broker of ,  St. Maries, Idaho, has taken a bond  and  lease   involving ultimate  payments  of $125,000  on  ten  claims  in the three groups known    as 'the  Loyal   Canadian," Clark Seattle  and  Robert Clark, nine miles  from   this  city^ "The-vendor  is Robert Clark,  a pioneer mining man of  this   district who has made his home at  Sa-  bastapol, Cal.,  during the past five  or six years.    The payment of   royalties, based on smelter returns, will'  apply on the,total consideration.  These properties are situated within one hundred feet of the Canadian  Pacific' railway   track.    They were  first   opened   and   worked     fifteen  years ago.    Their values run   82  in  gold   and   87 in copper.    Development which will give greater  depth  is expected to result in an  increase  in values.    Mr. Martin   intends   to  start development of   the properties  this summer.    It is  expected  that  the work already, done will make it  possible to ship ore in the  near  future.  pftt&at   as   a poposition?���������Victoria  rimes.

Gold, silver,  and   bronze  medals were  presented  to 1355 veteran employees by President   Agassiz,    163 of   whom   have  worked for the company over  forty  years. Timothy O'Shea, who worked  the first pit of the   mine fifty  years  and six months ago, refuses   to   re  tire on his pension.  The Diary of a Slacker  ^July 10���������I joined the army today  "and am having my photo taken  with the girls tbiu afternoon. I  didn't want to very much, but  father was at the door with his  shaving strap when I came home  yesterday. So 1 had no place to go.  Oh dear! It is just too awful. I  told the doctor my heart wasn't  strong,and the brute said he guessed  my heart would hold out if 1 kept  my feet from getting cold.  I shall save up my pay and buy  a discharge. I just know I won't  be able to stand it.  (Twelve  months elapse.     Enter  the slacker that  was.    His   face   is  very brown and dirty.    An old po  tato sack is tied around his  middle.  He   looks   like  a   tramp.    Lo,  he  speaks):  "Where the hell did that bomb  come from? Lend me a knife somebody till 1 cut the heart out of the  guy that threw it���������be upset my ration of beans."���������Western How!.  division, and our colonel told us we  would be in France in a month.  We are under very strict training  aud made to toe the scratch���������no excuses go here. As we are leaving for  the front in a short time no one was  granted the usual seven days' leave,  and therefore our impressions of  England are limited, but our impressions formed while looking out  the car widows are very favorable."  Mr. Carle, manager of tbe motor  truck company which has the contract for hauling ore from the Union  mine in Frauklin camp to Lynch  creek, is in the city tbiu week. Two  motor trucks have beeu sent up to  Franklin this week. One has a  hauling capacity of four sous and  the other five tons.

Sir Sam Hughes  will consider it expedient to drop a  hint around among the Anglo-  Canadian community that, though  some may have been created honorary colonels, it is not good form for  such to appear in uniform, week in  and week out. The minister has  granted this distinction pretty freely  among the civilian element, no  doubt as a compliment merely.  The compliment may be thoroughly  deserved,  but its bestowal   scarcely  11 i       _  A Modern Adam and Six Eves  New Yohk, July 18.���������Six modern  Eves of unknown   identity   are determined to accompany the|modern  Adam, Joe Knowles,when he leaves  his palatial apartment here today to  plunge, nude, into tbe woodB  of tbe  Adirondack hills on another  of  his  famous back   to nature jambourees.  Knowles lives this way a month a  yeae.    When   be goes in the only  thing  wrapped   about him   is   bis  expression.   When be comes out he  is well fed on fruits, nutB and herbs  and clad in a deerskin suit.  Knowles did not wunt the women  with him, so he chose one of  them,  Mrs. Emily Davis,   whose   husband  was killed in thp. fighting in northern  France recently, and who is an  experienced   woodswoman,     to   take  charge of the six Eves after  he  has  chosen a camp for them and left pre  liminary instructions in  the art  of  finding   edible   roots  and   how to  make snares, traps and fish  nets  of  grasses and fibres.   This corsetless,  unhair-pinned    and    non-mirrored  sextette^ of Eves   will   leave for  a  month   in   the   secret camp in the  Adirondacks,   and   then    Knowles  will go back to them.

Weeds are Spreading  Farmers Should-Wage a Ceaseless War  Against  the Pest  "Many of the weeds are getting  ahead of the fanners and, unless methods of control aro-'put into practice  at once, the-weeds will gain ihe upper  hand." This is how E. C. Nunnick,  of the Commission of Conservation,  sizes up the weed situntion'in Canada.  In regard to wild oats, he reports thai  in 1010 one hundred farms were visited  in each of the Prairie Provinces. m\({  on.one hundred per cent, of thc. Manitoba farms ivikl oats were, found. Tn  Saskatchewan, seventy-one per'cent.,  and in' Alberta three per cent reported  wild oats, fn I9JI. on the same farms  in Alberta, thirty-one per cent, reported wild oats, 'while in 1912 a still  larger number reported this weed,  showing that it was travelling westward with ji vengeance. In the districts visited in 101.1. wild oats were  reported by-uglily-thrcc per,cent, .of  the farmers.  'J3ri.ll mustard,- Canada thistle, stink-  weed and -wild*oats were reported in  the Prairie Provinces on at least  fifty-three per cent, of thc farms visited, and some, of these weeds worn  reported on seventy-nine, per cent, of  the farms. In Eastern Canada couch  grass and ox-r>ye daisy were reported  on 'sevent.v-t.hree per cent, of the farms  and sow (hisUe on thirty-four per cent.  This is bad .enough, but in every case  all these weeds were rapidly spreading,  and will continue to do so unless something more is done to check their advance.  Government legislation' without, thc  co-operation of the farmer will never  eradicate the weed pest. Farmers and  those of a locality must co-operate  and wage ceaseless-war against it if  any permanent, success is to be attained, li, is in the farmer's own interest  to destroy the weeds, which are growing where his cvops should be growing,  and for this reason alone action on  the part of tbe Government should  not'be necessary.  The Stampede  .   Russians Committecr no  Cruelties  On (he principle that "two blacks  make one white,' tho Germans have  circulated many stories about the  ferocity of the Russians when invading. Prussia.  Ln order -.hat-truth may bo justified the following extract is reproduced from the German religious  paper . "Chronik der Christlichen  Welt." ' The ..'Mtielc is from the pen  of a German pastor, who speaks from  personal experience.  "The first invasion of the Russians  in August, 31)14, was far more, extensive than ihe second; almost'sub- place  merged by (he ebb and flow of tlie  hostile armies. But the economic  and also the ecclesiastical damage  was comparatively slight. The Russians regarded the ��������� territory., which  they hemmed in on both sides, as a  safe possession, an annexed province. From this feeling, but also  without doubt from an originally sincere desire for a humane and orderly  method of conducting the'war, it,is to  be explained that there were no devastations, lootings or cruelties affecting the goods and chattels of the  civil population, who on their side no,' katchewan  doubt showed themselves' free from  fanaticism. 'The few' isolated exceptions, which naturally could not be  avoided among such huddled masses  of men, have been.afterwards exaggerated beyond measure and represented  as general '  Frontier    Days     Recalled���������A    Toiirn-  amentTbat Has a History  "The Sky Pilot," written and published by "Ralph Connor" (Rev. C.  W. Gordon), was the first glimpse, to  ninny thousands of reodeis, of cowboy  life on the prairies and in tho foothills.  It is onlv from such writings and  from the records of the R". N. W. M. P.  that the history of cowboys, cowgirls  ���������kings and queens of the lariat���������the  rough riders, ropers, sharpshooters  and their equipment, of saddles and  I bridles, Chaps, lints and gloves will  ever bo known.  As settlers flocked .info Southern  Saskatchewan and Southern Alberta  to cultivate the fertile acres, ranches  were - curtailed in extent, bands of  horses and herds of cattle have "been  reduced until today cowboy life has  almost passed-away. In another decade or two wo may look in vain for  the old pioneer anil scout life.  .Thousands of farmers on the prairies know nothing of 'this early history  of tho plains except by hearsay.  Tho Stampede to be held iu Moose  Jaw on July 11 to 14. HUG, will give  an opportunity to all to sec for themselves that which no amount of hearsay could give. U is to be a living  page from tho history of'ihe brave  days of the frontier!- A vision of the  vanishing prairie west; a tournament  that has a meaning.  Old timers who participated in the  early history of the West arc enthusiastic over tlie Stampede. To-them it  is like visiting the old home once  more, and to the new settler it will  be an open page of the past, once seen,  never lo be forgotten.  That these cowboys are skilled in  their profession can never be denied.  They are" counted among the best  horsemen in the world���������masters of  themselves and their horses. This  was demonstrated by the Strathcona  Horse in JQ00 They "were trained cavalry from Ihe day they first lined up  under cavalry command.  The-personal qualities of cowboys  are well known. Their principles of  right and wrong are invariably on the  side of fair play and justice. Their  creed imposed-wild justice upon many  malefactors and "the strong hand'-  was the law of force that ensured  safety of property where no other  writ or judgment found place.  Moose Jaw for a quarter of a century was on the eastern boundary of  thc ranches. It, was i.ne winter home  of many ranchers,-while their foremen  and outriders kept en outlook over  stock on tlie ranges.  Moose Jaw was also a great market  for disposing of stock. So the  idea of the "Stampede" at, once captured thc fancy and attentipn of old  timers in the city, and.it, looks as if  from July 11 to 14 this year will see  a great gathering**)! old timers with  all the-paraphernalia of cowboy life,  and many thousands of- visitors to  sec for the first time cowpunchcrs.  bucking .'-horses, - tenderfoot, gold  mounted spurs, silver horned saddles,  roiled cantles, lariats, quirts, slickers,  chaps, ropers, and wild steers.

How  tho  Crown   Prince   of  Germany  Looks  - The character of the'Crown Prince  of Germany is well known as a flirt,  chocolate-soldier style of officer, and  as a cynical critic of people not owning 'the sway of tho German Will,  his reputation is unique. But it has  been left to Lady Wilson to convey  in a few words an idea of his loolcs.  ��������� Lady Wilson who was a fellow  passenger with tho Prince on- his  return from ��������� his Indian trip, says:���������  "His expression is .'elusive, fr his  features are insignificant. A foolish,  sandy, pallid look is accentuated by  an uncompromising "nut" coiffure.  His hair, worn rather long, is brushed unmercifully back from a receding, forehead; his moustache is embryonic. Yet there is fire about him.  and devouring vitality. In his curious slanting eyes, that you can  scarcely arrest for a second, so restless are they, it is impossible to read  what is passing in his mind."  s  A  CONTAINS  NO  ALUM  The Trouble   Due   to  Nerves  Starved' for   Lack of  Good   Blood  An eminent medical writer has said  that "neuralgia is the cry of starved  nerves for better blood." The one  great symptom of this trouble is'pain,  fierce," stabbing pain, that almost  drives the sufferer frantic. The one  cause is poor blood; the only cure is  to enrich the blood. Heat applied to  the inflamed nerves will give relief,  but docs'not cure. Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills furnish the blood*all the needed  demerits, and the blood conveys them  to'the nerves. The only way of getting food, or medicine to the nerves is  through the blood, and the only way  to enrich the blood is through a fair  use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. In  this way -neuralgia, sciatica and other  nerve disorders are promptly cured,  and tho whole system benefited and  strengthened. Mrs. M. Gleason, R. E.J  No. 1. Uxbridgc. Ont.', who was a great'  sufferer from neuralgia, says: "I suf-  ferred intensely from neuralgia for four  years. My mood was thin and I was  completely run down. I suffered intense pain all the time. At different  times I consulted three doctors, but  their treatment did no more than give  me temporary relief. Then I tried  different medicines, but thc'result was  thc same���������they seemed no good in my  ease. I"was growing steadily worse,  and finally could-hot leave'thc. house  nor do a bit of work.- -The last doctor  I consulted could do nothing for me  but give.mo morphine tablets to ea^e  thc painjand by this time I had about  resigned myself to a life of pain. Then  one of Dr. Williams' almanacs.eame to  our house and I. read of similar cases  cured through the use of Pink Pills. I  got three boxes and before they were  all gone the pain began to decrease,  aud T began to have a better appetite.  By the time I had taken six boxes I  was again a well woman,- and my  neighbors could hardly, realize that  such a change could be made in so  short a time. Later I was bothered  with eczema and Dr. Williams' Pink  ['ills cured me. I have found thesp  Pills worth their weight in gold and J  cheerfully recommend them to all who  are ailing."  You can get these Pills from any,,  medicine dealer or by mail at 50 cents  a box or six boxes for $2.50 from The  Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., -Brock-  ville, Ont.

Someone asked Whistler if ho was  acquainted with. King Edward. He  said:  "No I have not that -pleasure.".  "But the King says he knows you."  "Oh, well," responded Whistler,  "you know he's always bragging."-  ��������� Conscription of Wealth  Conscription of wealth for the needs  of war is no noyolty in Engjand. Thc  advisers of .Richard H for a time  financed their adventures in. France  by tho aid of a poll tax, ingeniously  devised���������in the first experiments���������to  fall upon the richer classes.- In 3377  the levy was graduated from one  groat on the laborer to ������G 13s. 4d. on  a duke. Judges paid ������5 each; Earls,  countesses, and the richer mayors.  ������4; barons, baronets, aldermen, and  large merchants, ������2; knights and mayors of small towns ������1 down to 3s. 4d.  Thus tho fourteenth century Englishmen had evolved a system by which  the rich man paid in .some instances  as much as 40 to 50-times more than  his poorer neighbor. But the later  poll tax. that Jad to the Great Revolt  was, us we know, not happy'in tho  results.

HENNIGER^>  I  FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1916  In the spoon-fed machine press Premier  Bowser is reported as saying that the people do  not care for post-mortems:-- From this remark  we infer that the premier desires to convey the  impression that the people do not care to  delve into the past misdeeds of the government. To carry this principle to its logical  conclusion would be to convert this world into  a veritable paradise for rogues.  As The Sun goes to press our city is inundated with cabinet ministers. Those who are  not here are electioneering up in the northern  distticts. There are not at the seat of government, and the affairs of the people'are being  administered by. subordinates. When we  awake tomorrow morning we shall expect to  see the ground coveied with white���������and also  black���������lies, with a copious sprinkling of  broken promises.  It will be a terrible strain "on some of our  distinguished visitors here today if they are  compelled to go from ten tonight until eleven  tommorrow morning without liquid refreshments.  Of course "independent" candidates will be  placed in the field inVictoriaandin nearly every  constituency��������� the province. That is an essential feature of the Bowser game for perpetuation  of such  conditions   as were revealed in  recent legislative inquiries and in the investigation now proceeding in Vancouver.    It was  the intervention of a  so-called ''independent"  candidate, specially dug out of obscurity  for  the purpose, that secured the retujn of flon.  Lome Campbell in   Rossland.    All "indepen  dent" candidates  will  be agents for Bowser  just as truly as if they  were  specially   subsi  dized   by  the machine  for   the end they undoubtedly will serve.    It is upon the services  of so-colled "independents" that  the  premier  builds all his hopes for success in the pending  elections.    He  knows   that the tide of public  opinion is running so strongly against his administration   that  if the forces  against him  acted  and   voted   as  a  unit his government  would be routed from the political map. Hence  "independents" will be   both encouraged and  subsidized to'enter the contest. Bui we doubt  whether an aroused public can be hoodwinked  by  such  methods.    Those who are not with  the opposition in this crucial campaign are on  the side of Bowser.    Their actions will be correctly appraised by the advocates  of honest  government.���������Victoria Times.  SECOND STREET, NEAR BRIDGE.  Fresh and Salt Meats, Poultry always on hand.

American People Why  Canada is Engaged in thc War, and Makes a Plea for. the  Preparedness of American Mind and Conscience    o : -  '*My pica is for the preparedness  ������I the American mind, of the American conscience, of the American will,"  was die declaration of Dr. J'. A. Macdonald to a mass meeting under thc  ��������� auspices of thc Presbyterian General  Assembly held at Atlantic City recently. He spoke for more than an hour  in thc interest of colleges and universities end their part in the world con-  ' flict of ideas. References to Canada's  part in the conflict in Europe were  cheered.  What saves this world war from being, in the eyes even of a Canadian,  an unredeemed and undisguised  brutality is that, more than any of the  great wars of history, it is a struggle  not for territory but for freedom, for  the freedom of the soul, for the ideals  of liberty:'a struggle for the right  of a free people to govern themselves,  and for equality of opportunity for the  Tittle kingdoms and the small nationalities: a struggle for the right to a'  place in the sun, not for the Great  Powers alone, Britain and Prance and  . Germany arid Russia, but for Belgium  and Denmark and Holland and the  Scandinavian countries and Greece  and thc Balkan States, that they, too,  as freely and securely as their larger  neighbors, may each bo free to live  their own life, to cherish their own  ideals, and to make their distinctive  contribution to the civilization and  freedom of the. world. For anything  less noble Canadians, too, ought to be  too proud to fight: But for anything  more worthy none of the heroes and  patriots of old ever had a chance to  go out,and die.-   .  Proceeding, ho dealt with the phases  through which the nations, and particularly France and Britain, had  passed in their struggle for the freedom of ideas, for the rights, of the common people, and for equal justice for  all classes before thc law. In the world  conflict of ideas there could be no  neutrality and in this connection he  said:  Preparedness? Yes. If America is to  play any worthy part iu the gigantic  conflict of Ideas, which will disturb  the world long after tlie war of Forces  has spent itself, it is high time America made ready,for that inevitable  struggle:  But thc readiness for which I plead  on this occasion and in this presence  is the preparedness of the American  Mind, the preparedness of the American Conscience, the preparedness of  the American  Will.  Better, infinitely better, to go into  the war at the battlefronts of Europe  and on the high seas with an army  and a Navy weaker and worse equipped than the most alarmist accuser of  American uripreparedness in his,wildest nightmare ever dreamed, than to  line up!in the world conflict of Ideas  with an undisciplined national Mind,  a seared national Conscience and an  irresolute national "Will. These are  tlie Verdun battlements of your nation's life. Surrender them- to: the  enemies of;.Truth and Freedom and  Honor, and, no matter what happens  to your battalions and your battleships,, your nation will have lost its  Soul.    .  My pleading, therefore, with you  and with all Americans, in this time  of nationall fear and international  peril, is not so much for or against^thc  preparedness policy-for Navy or Army.  As a Canadian that is not my business.  Tn that national controversy I am a  neutral.  But Canadians also are Americans.  To us as to you in the new day of_the  new world the desolated war nations  will, look for leadership in those policies and programs that make for international peace  The Sphit of the West  Westerners   Have   Readily   Responded  to the Call of  Danger  Eastern Canada does not need to  be reminded of what Western Canada  has done in this war. In the western\  Provinces one looks, and not, in vain,  for the cheery optimism and splendid  enthusiasm of youth. These sterling  qualities have nowhere been so strikingly displayed as in the record of  recruiting since the war began. It  is not that the West can claim to be  more thoroughly impregnated with the  spirit of British freedom, but rather  that there thc spirit .of youth, which  is tho soul of adventure, readily responds to the call of. danger from the  "little isle our fathers held for home."  Thc Calgary News-Telegram claims  for'Alberta a new record:  ��������� "Their Parliamentary duties having  been disposed of" for another year,  severaL-more. members of thc Alberta  Legislature have exchanged the toga  for the uniform, and today more than  twenty per cent, of the Provincial Lawmakers are under the colors. All told,  there are fifty-five representatives in  the House at Edmonton, and oi these,  eleven have already signed up for service overseas. This t.o one.more than  a fifth, and it is douotlul if there is  any other legislative body in the Dominion that can make .a better showing.  "Of thc eleven Alberta solons, two  are Colonels, one' is a Major, three  are Captains, three hold rank as lieutenants, and two are privates. One  of the three Captains has seen active  service in tho great -war, and is home  on furlough, and one of tho three  Lieutenants .has risen from the ranks.  Taking.everything into consideration,'  it is a most democratic as well as  a most patriotic body, this Alberta  Legislature. Its members are fighters  when it conies to politics and yet it  is seldom that one side of the House  sees eye "to eye with Ihe other but  On the question bi patriotism the  fifty-five members are a unit."  This is a record of which Albertans  have reason to be proud. The s-wut  undcr-tow of the European war is a  unifying force throughout the Empire.  East and West in Canada are one in  this war. The only rivalry between  them'is how best to servo their day.  and generation in the spirit of unity  and freedom so that Canadians hurrying to the call of the motherland, can  truly say as they catch the vision of  the years to be-      tv  "The  cares  we  hugged  drop  out  of  vision,  Our hearts  -with    deeper thoughts  dilate.

The matter was fully discussed at  a meeting of the board and it was  shown that the object of the committee, would, be to discuss all matters at  issue between the various interests and  to advance those of the people of the  province by co-operating to.the fullest  possible extent. The organization of  the committee will probably be based  on much the same lines as the council of commerce and agriculture which  meets in Winnipeg.  From a Farmer's Wallet  Honesty   in     Business    Transactions  Pays  Every Time  Have you ever heard a farmer say  after he has sold a poor, wornout cow  for a good price "I got a big price  for her, she was getting along in  years and would not bo worth much  another year?" And say ������his right  before the young folks. What kind of  an education is that for boys and  girls? If father is tricky, is not that  a lesson in deception for the voting  folks? They think father is all right.  What father does and says must be  all right for them lo do; so the world  is made  a  little bit better  T knew a man whose son sold a  yoke of oxen. After he had the money  in his hands and the oxen were gone,  the old father said to his boy: "Now,  my boy, that was too much for those  oxen. They were not worth it. You  fake part of that money and give it,  Njack to the neighbor. We can't afford lo take his money in any such  way." But the -son protested." "Ho  agreed to the price, father. It was a  fair bargain!" Tho old man was firm,  however, and insisted that his son  had over-reached aud should pay back  part of thc money, and he finally did  so. Do you suppose either of them  ever lost anything by that course? As  long as he lived the man who bought  those oxen spoke of the farmer and  his son as honest men, worthy to be  believed in overy spot and place. Yes,  long after they were both dead and  gone that story was told of them and  their memory was the more fragrant  'for that simple little "transaction.  Now. I have called this a'small matter. I have not- used the right word.  No such thing is a small matter.

Germany alone estimates an annual  saving.of over $400,000,000 a year in  light and power bills.

Farmers'JSons Should be Given Some  Incentive to Stay on th.e Farm  If the farmers' sons would remain  on the farm and keep pace with the  new developments in agriculture with  thc. same degree of activity that characterizes- manufacturing and other  industries, the problem of maintaining fertility and supplying food for  the nation would be solved.  Boys leave thc farm because (hoy  are not given material encouragement, to remain while they arc in  their "teens." The life of the average  young boy on the farm is not very  pleasant for man reasons. The hoius  of labor are long, drudgery is constant and the conveniences such as he  has seen in city homes are lacking.  No incentive is offered to overcome  those disagreeable features. Most  boys, when young, want to become  farmers like their fathers. They listen to the representatives from the  agricultural eclieges ��������� and tho well-  meaning city farmer enthusiasts picture the 'beni'.tie? of form life, but  when they face the cold reality the  following morning, they are dissatisfied and want to leave the farm.  I believe I know how the majority  of farm boys feci, for I was one myself, ;:nd have observed them for more  than a half century. I believe that  there is a remedy that' will counteract the dislike for the farm which  so often prevails among them, aud  that remedy is encouragement. Some  incentive must be offered, not after  boys iiave reached their majority, but  while they are just J'kids."  Thc following, incident, which came  to my notice many years ago, fairly  illustrates what 1 mean by incentive,  or encouragement, and thc discouraging ''actor:  The doctor was visiting a patient  in the country.'. Just as he was leaving the house, little Johnny, the farmer's eight, year old "son, said, "Doctor,  this is my birthday and papa has  given me a pig. 1 want you to see  it." He proudly led (ho doctor Co the  pen, where he showed him a nice  little black pig about a week old. He  explained quite minutely thc superior  points of this pig and aaid that he  was going to take care of it and, when  it got to bo a big hog, would sell it  and have "lots of money."  From time toHime during thc summer Johnny took groat pride in showing his pig, watching it cat, and keeping it clean. - Threp times a day he  would strut like a little man out to  the pen carrying skim milk and an  armful of-corn, and tried to act and  talk like a full grown farmer. As the  summer progressed, he enlarged tlie  pen, giving his pet some extra pasture, and ouite often would gather  green vegetation for it. On "one occasion he stated that next year he  was going to buy two or three pigs  with his money and ask papa to rent  him a piece of. ground so that he  could taise his own corn. He concluded by saying that he "was going lo  be a.farmer and raise hogs and get  rich." -  When the pig was ten months old,  Johnny's father sold his hogs, including Johnny's. Johnny was very  proud of his pig and declared it would  weigh lots more than any hog on the  place. The following morning the  hogs were delivered at the station,  and the doctor, anxious to know how  much larger Johnny-3 pig was. Because of the careful attention it had  received, than his father's lot, went  to see if. weighad. When the hogs were  being driven en the scales Johnny  said,, "Papa, aren't you going to  weigh my pig separately?" The father  in a cold way said. "My pig.! Whose  corn fed that pig? Get out of the way.  Don't bother me." And Johnny was  dumb. His lips quivered, the tears  rolled down his cheeks and ho walked  away broken-hearted and discouraged.  The next year Johnny did not raise  a pig, for all incentive "was taken  away; all his hones and dreams were  blasted.-  Today (he old farm where Johnny  lived i.s dilapidated and unproductive.  John is not a farmer, but a worthless,  shiftless individual living in (own.  His ambition was blighted the day  his pig was sold. What, might not  Johnny have, become had his father  taken him iuio partnership the day  the pig was Mild?  Enemy Admits  Food Shortage  The Germans are at last admitting a  shortage   of   food.    A   leading   urtiele  in The Schlcisisohe Zeitung. the organ  of the great CiliTuan landowners, says:  "It fs childish lo eontiiiue always" to  hide the truth.    Let us openly'admit  that th.' diffieultii:s that have arisen,  mainly in the great towns, are caused  not merely by  luck of system  in  the  distribution  of  the  necessary articles  of food, but also by the fact tliat the  j supply of such articles i.s inadequate."

It is in Endcll  street near Covent Garden Market, and  the- entire staff, from cooks to surgeons, are women. Thc institution is  the outgrowth of a movement known  as the Women's Hospital Corps. A  little body of women left England for  France in the, early stages of the war  to nurse the wounded soldiers, but  later they were called back, as they  were needed even more urgently to  care for the many wounded soldiers  brought home to England.  From this small beginning the hospital, which will accomodate 500  wounded soldiers, sprang. The wounded soldier is considerably surprised,  if he is well enough to take notice,  to bo brought to the hospital and see  only women orderlies in the corridors,  and women surgeons and physicians to  attend him.  The medical staff consists of eight  surgeons under the direction of a'  chief surgeon, a dental surgeon, an  ophthalmic surgeon, a pathologist, an  2^-ray operator, an anaesthetist and  a number of physicians. In addition,  women medical students visit the'hospital, and the entire administration  supervision of thc hospital is in women's hands.  People and Land Poorer  The shortage- of meat in Berlin,  Hamburg, Frankfort and Leipsic and  other large cities is accounted for by  the lapk of nitrates by which thc land  ���������as' a rule very -impoverished��������� is  nourished. Germany has for many  years had to rely upon imported nitrates to keep her soil in a prolific  condition. Then, thc shrinkage of labor on farms, and the commandeering  "of live stock for the needs of the German Army at tho eastern and western  fronts, have contributed to bring about  a serious state of affairs. Political  economists 'have held a conference in  Berlin for the purpose of advising the  State as to the best methods of conserving other food.supplies, which may  be required in a larger degree, if the  war should pass into another winter.
