Williamson of -the -Brit-  ash Columbia Sabbath  School' asso-  ��������� ciation were delivered in the  Grand  Forks   churches . Sunday and Monday  of. the' 6th and 7th inst.    He  spoke at the Sunday " morning   ser;  vice in the Methodist church, at an  afternoon   union - mass ,meeting of  children andVrown ijps in'the' Baptist ''church;- and", preached   again  in Knok-'Presbyterian church at the  evening service.    -Monday afternoon  ' he addressed a meeting " of workers  in Knox church on "Sonde DeoVSnds  Upon the Sunday School,"  and'in  the   evening  -he addressed another  "union meeting in the Baptistchurch,  .taking   for   his  subject . ",The New  Crusade."    This,   he held,    vvas'in  conuection with the present war, in  which the nations were not only  in  conflict - against  each other for,the  mastery but   all  were  striking the  swiftest and strongest   blow  against  . the drink evil ever witnessed in  his-  tory. Already the temperance forces  had secured a   victory  that spelled  ultimate and  complete success, the  .economic and -moral"1 improvement  resulting since the drastic war meas-'  uceai having- proved the'wisdom of  such   action.    Russia,   he showed,-  had already proved to be more prosperous in war with total prohibition  than she had been in time of   peace  with   the   open   drinking     places.  More money had been put into  the  savings banks by the people in  one  month than had been  deposited  in  the whole year before  the  war   began; and the people were, according  , to the Russian chancellor of the exchequer, doing 50 per cent better &s  industrial producers. There are some  things worse than war, the  speaker  declared.   Tbe "drink  evil was one.  Out of tbe present conflict will come  a clean,  healthy,   prosperous,   permanent civilizations  The nations have come to learn  since the war began what a "scrap  of paper" means when it is signed  and. sealed" by the brave and true  men of the British empire. Mr. Williamson believes that the rapidly  growing national'consciousness", in  Canada, as a result of our part in  the war, should find;|a weekly expression in bur Sabbath schools by  the salutation of ' our naiibnal flag  as a regular part of the school opening exercises. Sunday afternoon  this was exemplified when the whole  congregation rose and "aluted. our  national emblt-m, which is a flag of  crosses, and which had been tastefully draped around- the pulpit  desk.

ONE SYSTEM  Lftng distance   telephoning to the  coast is now an   actual  fact.    It  i^  just as easy now to  telephone  from  Grand -Forks and points in  th'e eastern   part   of   the province to Vancouver and Victoria as it is between  point, in tbeKootenay and Boundary  districts.    Commercial calls are now  taken for alj points in the  territory  of the British  Columbia  Telephone  company in the lower mainland and  Vancouver island, and already many  calls nave been bandied to the satisfaction of  the   company's   patrons.  It is a source of gratification   to the  company that it  has   been possible  to connect up the different 'parts  of  its system sooner than was expected.  Physical   conditions   have ��������� been  a  handiccp,    but   now the Boundary  and the coost are in close touch with  each   other.    It  is "the materialization of the aim of the business men,  who   years   ago   planned to have a  direct railway  line   connecting   tbe  coast and the Kootenay,   so that interior trade in the province could be  kept   in   the province.    The Kettle  Valley railway is  now in operation, -  and the long distance telephone will  greatly assist in increasing  business  with-coast points and   form a   bond  of   mutual   interest between  these  two parts of the province.

Randolph Davis is suffering from  a broken collar bone, the result of a  fall from his bicycle.  Death of Miss Allen  The  death   of  Miss Laura M. J.  Allen occurred at the Cottage hospital last Saturday, June 5,  following  an operation. Last fall, while crossing the  Fourth  street bridge,   she  fell and broke one of her  legs,   and  she has been a patient at the  hospital since that time.    Blood   poisoning set in, and an   attempt  to  amputate the limb,   wag   made, but in  her weak condition  she  was unable  to bear the  shock, and died   while  under the influence  of chloroform. |  Tbe late Miss Allen  was' a resident!  Grand   Forks  for  many years, and'  her many  good   qualities  endeared;  her to all  with   whom she came in ���������  contact.    She   is    survived    by   a'  brother, Charles Allen, who has the  sympathy of the people oLthe community.  The funerai was held on Tuesday  afternoon from Holy Trinitychurch,  of which deceased was a member,  the service being conductad'by Rev.  P. C [layman. The attendance  was very large.  Granby's Production  It is stated  the Granby   company  will resume dividends at the rate of  6 per   cent   next   month.    An   ex  amination of the company's properties by represntatlves of a New York  banking house underwriting 82,000,-  000 of the company's bonds showed  there   are   9,000;000   tons of 2 per  cent ore in  sight  in the company's  Hidden     Creek   mine,   with  good  chances of increasing   the   tonnage  by   further   exploration,   and   that  large additional  tonnages  of   clean  ore   averaging.  0.6   per cent copper  have also been   developed.    Tbe   2  per   cent   ore   carries    recoverable  values of   30c   ppr   ton in gold and  silver.    The   Bonanza   mine   in addition has a single ore body measuring   up  340.000 tons.    The cost of  equipping this.property is placed at  $50,000.    The investigation -by   the  bankers shows an  amortised   value  of Granby stock of $100   per   ehare  based on 17c copper. The company's  Phoenix minesrare further  stated to  have developed  3,000,000  tons of  ore.    Tbe   copper   value of the ore  at the Hidden Creek mine  is placed  at   306,000,000 pounds, and at the  Phoenix mines   48,000,000  pounds  of copper.'   This   is   equivalent  to  three-fifths  of the total copper production of tbe province to date, and  it is probable the copper reserves at  Hidden Creek     will   be   increased  about 50 per cent on   these   figures.  President Nichols states   the   com  pany's   production     is    3,500,000  pounds of copper  per month  or at  the rate of 42,000,000  pounds   per  annum.    This  production   is being  increased   by   the  doubling of  the  Anyox smelter capacity  from 2000  tons a day to 4000 tons a day.  Yesterday was payday^ at the  Granby smelter, and it relieved the  money stringency to a considerable  extent. ,THE    SUN.   GRAND   FORKS,    B.

J.  ' Tobin, county superintendent of  >;chools, showed that during the 1014  growing season the 2J) youthful farmers "banked"1 $G4n.-48 and rlie returns  are not all in yet. The total profits  will reach nearly $2,000.  It was less than a year ago that Mr.  Tobin conceived the idea of 'adding  "in the Held" agricultural work to  Hie school curriculum. Me wanted to  dignify the farming profession, make  tillers of the soil and encourage country life.  ���������'Seth". Sheppard's school, 'more  technically known as district No. 73,  or the East Prairie school, 12 miles  norlh of Chicago, was selected for the  experiment. It was necessary that the  teacher be employed .12 months instead of nine. When school closed (lie  teacher took up his work on the  farms with his pupils.  ���������'Seth" Shepard became America's  first, "tramp school teacher." fie  went from Held to field instructing the  children.  As the children were allowed to lay  aside their readers and arithmetics  they were instructed to-return home  and rent from their parents a small  tract of land tor farming during the!  summer months. "Raise whatever you  want," they weve told.  I2ach little farmer was required to  .pay his father landlord a standard  rent for his little farm.- That cost,  the cost of cultivation and the cost of  marketing all came from the produce. It was "real for sure" farming  with no "royal roads."  And each little farmer���������they ranged in age from 7 to 14 years^was required to open an account With the  Niles Centre -State bank. They were  progressive tillers of the toil' and  transacted all business by checks.  In that way their bank books were  their tests and when the teacher called on them for "final exams" on the  work of the year they simply produced  the Xiles Centre State bank statements which told the story like this:  Elmer Dohde. 160 square rods (one  acre) in corn, not yet marketed.  Mabel Baumann, six square rods in  carrots, onions and asters; net profits  ? 12.50.  Caroline Kutz, 1(1 square rods in :  parsley, onions and asters: not profits !  ?!M. 61. i  Otto Hoffman, three square rods in l  radishes; net profits $24.j)o. !  Alabel Wagner. 12 square rods in J  radishes-,'beans and asters; not profits ,'  ?i::.n:i. ;  So ran the record until accounting  had been made for every cine of the  young farmers.  "I figure that the farming profit for K  this year's work aomn'g the "t'elh"  Shepard pupils will jun clori to $2,000  when everything is marketed," said  Mr. Tobin. "And the parents are delighted with the proposition. Many  of the children are buying their own  school bos'is find clothing ibis fan.  and some will have comfoi table bank  accounts: besides.  "And during the coming year we  will use the Shepard school as a model by* which to develop every rural  school in Cook county,   ".t is going to  ���������'an the regeneration or our youngsters," added the county superintend-  out.  Long Term and Degradation  French    Colonel     Receives Stiff  Sentence ifor Stealing   Military  /       Stores  - Colonel Francois Deselaux, ' former  paymaster-general fn the French army  charged,with stealing military stores,  was convicted and sentenced to seven  years' solitary conlinement and  military degradation.    His name was ordered  removed   from  the  list  of  (he  Legion of Honor.  .Madame   Bechoff,"    the   wife   of  a  German, in whose house  'the stolen  | goods were found, also  was declared  guilty  |>y .Urn  court-martial and  sentenced to two years' imprisonment. A  soldier   named* Verges,   who   was  accused  of aiding    in the thefts,    was  given a one year sentence.    All  the  j other   defendants   were   declared   not  I guilty.  j Desclaux, who was formerly chief  i secretary lb Joseph Caillaux, when  | Caillaux was minister of finance,  J was arrested in January,- charged  j with stealing military mtpplies and  I sending them, to the'home of Mine.  j Bechoff, one of f'.ie best known, dress-  : makers in Paris. On account of the  l conspicuous   political  connections  of  r.  S  Desclaux    and    the  ��������� prominence  of  j Mine.  Hechoff, the charges created a  sensation.  i Failure���������But  a~ Brave   Man  J     A  soldier who had   failed  in   bust-  l ness and  was    absolutely  on his un-  ' pars   when    his . father  took him in  and gave him a job, writes:  '"My dear father, people know mo  as a failure and the people are right.  I am. I have always been a poor provider and ne'er-do-well, albeit a well  meaning one. I am afraid after this T  shall be worse off than ever, for 1  have one leg less than I used (o have.  Still, T am quite satisfied so.. 1 feel I  have at least done ^one little uspL'uI  thing. I have suffered a great deal  since they amputated my right leg  some twelve days ago, and I suffer  now. It's a strange thing, though.,  for T who am such a terrible coward,  love to feel this pain, for it keeps me  reminded of the fact 'that I, the ne'er-  do-well, even belong to the multitude  of ths glorious mutilated. Do not tell  my wife I have but one leg. She dors  not'know it as yet and I rather she  should not until I am out���������it God  wills it that I shall ever be."

TORONTO, ONT.  ���������WINNIPEG  MONTREAL  Abbas II., the ex-Khedive of Egypt,  who has probably repented by this  time that he sided with Britain's enemies and thus lost his position, was  once very neatly snubbed by a young-  Canadian girl.*  When thev"Canadian girl was introduced to the Khedive he said to her:  '���������Have you been able to pick up any  of our language?"-  "Yes, I can say one or two words,"  she answered.  "Let me hear you," said the Khedive. ,  Pointing to her pocket, and imitating the whining'voice of the Egyptian  beggars, she said::  ���������'Backsheesh, Excellency!"  -Would Turn Pirate  There is quite the Xelsou (ouch  about a conversation winch is report-.:  ed ' to have taken place between  Vice-Admiral Stileman;. Senior Naval Officer at the Port of Liverpool,  and the skipper of a British trawler.  "If 1 see n German submarine, may  I ram it?" inquired, the. ..latter, anxious, no doubt, to obtain expert opinion. "As a non-combatant," the  vice-admiral replied, "you might be  hung as a pirate. And how would  you know whether' the submarine  was Germa'n or British?' "But suppose," urged the pertinacious skipper, "that I was quite certain it was  a German?" ."I cannot advise you,"  said the other, "as a nou-combataiit  to run into anything." "But suppose," persisted the skippe--. 'that  the wheel jammed, and f ran down  the submarine by accident?" "Well,"  the vice-admiral admitted, "you  could not do better than that."  The Jitney 'Bus  Robert  10. Mansfield. United" St-.itos  consul-general at Vancouver, B.C..  in  a  report regarding  the operation  of  jitney  'buses,  says   that   they  made  their     first  appearance  in  that  city  1 about January l, 1915, and-that about  I ,'iuO are being operated at the present  j time.     According   to   his  Report,   the  ��������� average daily receipts of each jitney  are $8. and the traffic of the British  Columbia  Railway-lias  been  affected.    In January,  1915,  this rail-  sway company carried 1,J38,333 .fewer  i passengers    than    in    January. 1914,  ! when the number of passengers car-  | ried  was 3,364,062.    Tn January, 1914,  ; the  company paid  the city $2,766 as  ' its percentage of gross receipts of the  I railway,   while in" January, 1915,  this  payment was reduced to 51,816, a de-  , crease  of :\?,\U  per cent.    It is  esti-  ; mated that the city will lose $30,000  ' in these payments, if the present decrease   in   railway   receipts   is   maintained.  Quick Change Artist *���������  My friend was talking about a very  remarkable piece of "high finance."  - "It looks marvellous," he said, "but  there is nothing really marvellous  about it. All that such a job requires  is perfect unscrupulousness-  "In that it is like Jones. Jones  was a mill worker, and one day he  came 10 work without any milk in his  coffee. - Smith, on the other hand,  had a jug of coffee that was all golden with rich. milk.  -  "Just- before   the    lunch   hour   the  milkless  Jones  began   to   tell   Smith  stories about strange thefts.        -     ,  "'Some   of-these    thieves  '11  take  the  hat off your head without your  Juiowin' it.' he said.  "'No!' said Smith.  "Some of 'em '11 take tha coat off  your back" while you're slee'pin' in the  train.'  "���������No!*  "The milkless Jones, as the noon  whistle blew then sent Smith off on  some trifling errand. A quick manipulation followed, and poor Smith  said, on his return::  "'It's right what you was tellin'  me about them thieves, for blowerl  if one of 'cm ain't come and taken  the milk out of my coffee.' "  Will  Punish  Emperor Joseph-For. Not  Having  Kept'His End up'in the  '   -   Conflict  . The Press Bureau's official eye-witness at tlie British front-sends a new  version of German aims gleaned from  captured German officers, who say  that the Austrian empire is to be dismembered, part'of it going to Italy  and part of it lo Germany. This is the'  price, according to these officers Austria' must pay for the failure of lier  arms..        ' . ���������      ���������.-.-'    . -,- *  It'is said in addition by these men  that Germany- will insist upon the'  annexation of Belgium to a new German confederation, to include all Germanic people's and the Scandinavians.'  Antwerp, according to. these view's^  which are pronounced with great assurance, is (o be made an international .port, and tha whole of this  scheme is to be brought about through  the offices of the Pope.  "Conversation with captured officers and the better educated prisoners  has thrown considerable light on the"  views of the general situation now  held by "the German army.  "It is freely acknowledged that Germany started /the war, but opinion  seems to be divided regarding her in-  lent ion to occupy Belgium permanently. "The belief is that she would not  have crossed the - Meuse if England'  had remained neutr.al. The belief is  that she would have advanced  through South Belgium and Luxemburg, ���������thiuking Great Britain would  take "it in the right way, as long "as  Germany maintained that she "desired  no'territory in Europe no1 already .occupied by.

Has  Many Advantages Over' Those  in   Use   by - Other   Nations  The British navy has developed a  new type of mine, which, according to  the Scotsman, marks a new era in this  branch of warfare.

Through,' Dr. Rittman's discoveries  it is expected bases for dyes tuffs and  high explosives heretofore almost exclusively imported from Germany will  be drawn from petroleum and independent producers will be able to  double their output of gasoline.  - Under the agreement the Aetna  company-undertakes to devote the  sum of not less than $200,000 to the  construction of apparatus and machinery necessary to make exhaustive  tests of the commercial feasibility of  the new discovery. The development  work will he carried, on in Pittsburg,  where the company has acquired a  small refining plant. " " ���������  "It, is expected that the co-operation will be .productive of great benefits," said Secretary Lane, "inasmuch  as It will'enable the process to be immediately tried out. in "large- scale  operations and will " permit the  Bureau of Mines at an early date to  publish the full details of a commercial workable process."  "The contract expressly provides  that all devices, improvement, processes and inventions of any kind  evolved in the development of the~pro-  cess shall be subject to patent by the  Bureau of Mines for the benefit of the  public. The work will be'carried on  under the direct supervision of Dr.  Rittman, who will have exclusive control and direction of the experimental  work."

DOUBLE  TRACK   MILEAGE  \  Horses or Gasoline  Craze For Gasoline Engines Fast Dying Out in the West  Saskatchewan farmers are apparently coming to the conclusion that  gasoline tra'ctive" power is less economical than that supplied by animals.  The Hon. W. R. Motherwell recently  stated that the Saskatchewan Investment Co. at Meringo had discarded  the six large engines they had in  favor of oxen, 160 ox������n being required  to do the old work. At the Horse  Breeders' convention held in Regina,  the secretary in his report claimed  that the 'craze for gasoline engines  was fast dying out and that the use  of horses was being reverted to. 'The  result is that mixed farming in this  province has received a considerable  impetus.- y '."  The report of the Sheep Breeders'  association also held in. Regina showed, there were 126,000 sheep in Saskatchewan in 1914, or about one to  every five persons. The price realized  for wool in 1914 was 17.G cents as  compared with 13 and 14 cents in  191.1.  The outlook for increase in sheep  production is favorable, the" only  trouble being dogs. It was decided to  take up with the provincial government to see- if all dogs in rural districts with the exception of those kept  on the farm for utility purposes could  not be done away with. Over 1,000,000  hogs were produced in Saskatchewan  in 1914, as compared with about 500,-  000 in 1913.  Double   Track   Mileage  of C.P.R.

For soldiers with  good eyes it was fou.HL.that a person  seen once before :;oulJ be recognised  at a distance of SO feet, while an acquaintance could be recognized at a  distance of 300 feet, and an intimate  friend or relative at a distance of  500 feet.

' "A soldier was  brought into the ��������� hospital the other  .day in a state of unconsciousness, and  nobody could tell what was the matter with him. It might nave been a  case of cerebrospinal, for example-  But Juckily while going through his  pockets they found a "piece of parient-'  al bone. He had evidently had it chipped off, or operated off, his head, aud%  had kept it. So they were able to diag-'  nose the case as "that of some pressure of the skull.on  the brain."  Storing' Coal in Water  BABY'S OWN TABLETS  USED ELEVEN YEARS  Mrs. , McBachren, Giencoe, Ont.,  writes: "I have used Baby's Own Tablets for the past eleven years for my-  children and have every reason to  praise them as they always do good."  Once a mother uses the Tablets for  her little ones she will use no other  medicine. They are absolutely safe,  pleasant to take and never fail to regulate the bowels and stomach. They  are sold by medicine dealers or by  mail at 25 cents a box from The Dr--  Williams' Medicine Co., Brock'ville,  Ont.  Coal Immersed in Water Does Not  Deteriorate as Rapidly as When  Exposed to the Air  The advantages of storing coal under water where deterioration is much  less than in the air, are appealing-  more and more strongly to engineers.  It has been generally recognized that  the gases concealed in the pores of  the coal���������oxygen, in particular���������are  responsible for both heating and deterioration, and their escape should  be prevented as far as possible. Coal  immersed in water is practically sealed, and little oxidization takes place.  Experiments have shown that, coal  kept under w-ater for the space of  three years lost less than 3 per cent,  in inefficiency, while supplies stacked  in the o������en often show a decrease in  value from 5 to 8 per cent, in a  single year. In tropical countries  the decline is greater-, than in the temperate zones.  Use ' Miller's \Vprm Powders and  the battle against worms . is won.

Demurrage Charges  "Back to the Land"  There are now living in cities many  men with fair sized families who have  had experience in truck farming, and  who are paying as much as $200 per  year rental for a house and small lot.  An  equally good home,  with  twenty  acres of land suitable for truck farming,    might be had in the country at  -lower rental and be quite capable of  yielding even larger bet returns    for  the family than would the city occupations, remarks a bulletin issued by  the Seed Branch, Ottawa.

In a  , time'of national peril, when true conception "of  citizenship "leads  men' to  - try to do their best for their country,  - the least that might - be expected is  , that those who are doing notiiia,, beyond following their ordinary vocations, and who are untouched by, or  are indifferent to, the war conditions,  should at least not hamper those who  '-'are trying to do something, , even  though it may not,be the best or iu accordance with others' views. Perhaps in lime, as lh<- war and its awful effects come" nearer, and nearer  to -us, -we shall find all.   the people  . driving to contribute something, even  if in their effort mistakes may be  made. In times of national peril personal preferences should give way to  national needs.' Those,who go" to the  front have their duty clearly defined,  in the trenches. .

'  'And what is the duty of those of  . us who-do uot go to the front?-Clearly and unmistakably it-is that of increasing as much as possible the, food  eo necessary-for the empire. 'And  why? First and foremost, for patriotic  ' reasons. . The empire has' told us that  she needs all the food that we can  ' produce. 'Some people question the  advisability, or the necessity of this  fine of appeal. The man that -can  see no patriotism in production when  Istence is himself niosl in need  of patriotic stimulation. What Canada  needs most of all today is patriotic  enthusiasm. The man who feels, when  he is holding the plow and sowing his  ������eed and reaping his wheat, that he is  doing it not. merely for himself but  also for his brother Can'adjan who is  risking life in' the trenches or in the  bayonet charge will'do it with lighter-  heart.

I am  -prepared to bank the future of Canada on the true loyalty and patriotism of the farmers: if they did not  have It pur future would not be wortii'  much. And that patriotism -can be  stimulated.  Secondly, we base our appeal on  gratituder- When .over seven million  people sacrifice their farms, their factories and their people, for freedom,  for liberty, for humanity,, for us, there  should be.-no hesitation in our res-  sponse. All-history, sacred ov profane,  shows no parallel. We are enjoying  eomfort and'"safety'because brave lit  tie Belgium stood up as a people to  withstand the oncoming rush of.Prussian militarism that aimed to crusn  the liberty and .safety of France and  the British empire.'; Consider what  might have happtned if Belgium also  had considsred as '.'a scrap of paper"  the treaty "that' -Britain guaranteed-  After relying on the strength- of that  treaty and'prospering because of it  for nearly eighty, years,: it is suddenly torn to fragments. What does it  mean'to us? A people? as numerous  ��������� as Canadians will.stand by it and sacrifice themselves for it.' Have we no  gratitude that we are not reduced to  a German colony or forced'-to pay an  indemnity that would have placed a  mortgage on every home and every  farm in Canada? We owe it to our  children to show our gratitude by pro-  .kcing more for .Belgium and for  France'and for our empire.  Thirdly,' we have our duty to Canada. Shall we, continue as a nation?  We have borrowed nearly three billion- dollars to build our railroads, our  . <_anals and our harbors, to-carry on  our governmental undertakings, to  equip < our , cities, to construct our  great industrial plants'. This country  is like 'a farmer who has borrowed  live thousand "dollars from the" bank  to improve, his property. Suddenly  the- call comes to meet life obligation. What is to le done? We must  raise the money, or we are bankrupt. Canada.ha^ ths> resources which  must be called on now ,to produce  morel The. most-productive resource,  is the farm,'and now the national  appeal is -for,-the farms of Canada  to increase production, so that our  cxporis .shall .be increased to meet our  obligations' in the foreign .markets,  particularly in England. It is a national problem, not.merely a farmers'  problem.' It can be met if all the operating forces will co-operate. Berter  transportation facilities are called  for, more agricultural credit is needed," more labor will .be of great help.  The railroads and steamship companies must not hamper by increasing rates; the banks- should understand that in this special call they  have a duty to perform; the towns  and cities should''he"lp" to distribute  the surplus labor. Unless all _these  organizations realize that this is a  national question .calling for hearty  co-operation we shall not meet fully  the empire's call.  ���������  Finally, there is the duty of the individual to himself. Increased production means more for everyone who  meets this call, more for himself and  his family. Anil this applies to the  city and town man���������the man with the  backyard and the vacant lot. Unpro-  ducing land in' town and city will this  year show a lack of patriotism. Any  town or city in'Canada that this year  has unproductive land with idle workers will be guilty of a national crime.'  Three- propositions have been put  up to the farmers of Canada in tiro  government campaign: '. "  ' 1. Grow staple '���������ops, such as can  be stored and transported. There will  be a special demand for wheat, oats,  peas, beans and flax.  2. Increase production per acre  rather than increase acreage- Better  cultivation and the best seed will  double or treble the yield under favorable weather conditions.  3. Particular attention should be  given to live stock. The war put up  the p'rice of cereals more than the  price ot meats���������but there is coming  a world shortage of meats. It was in  sight .before the war. Out of the  great cattle countries in only one  have the cattle kept pace with the  people., .-.-;���������  The meat consumption by Canadians is double that;of the French and  fifty per cent, more than .that of the  British. With bigh'prices coming it  will be- well for the people-of this  country to cut, down somewhat their  meat allowance and to more fruit and  vegetables!"V It may be that this war  will result in Canadians learning  how-to"'grow vegetables and how to  cook and eat them.: The health of the  .people will be. thereby'improved.

Such an addition to tho wages now paid in Canada would mean something in the reduction' of unemployment and hi the  maintenance of a fair standard of pay  for the working classes. It is of far  n.ore importance to the wage-earners  themselves than i', is to' our manufacturers that the "Made in Canada"  movement should take practical and  permanent form.  ��������� War in Europe may lead .to Canadians learning more about their own  country and its holiday resorts. Not a  single dollar that can possibly be kept  in Canada should be allowed to escape, and the thought I would like to  impress is that it.should be the business of each and every Canadian to  act in line with the "Made in Canada"  movement and, in so far as our influence may extend, to see that others  act in like manner.  If the leaders" of the trades and  labor unions would turn their attention to the "Made in Canada" movement and encourage their members to  give it strong support, th-.-! desire to  purchase home-made goods would  take firmer hold of the people of the  country and hundreds of thousands  of dollars would be kept in Canada  and paid in wages to Canadian 'workmen which now go to help the mechanics and laborers of foreign countries. "  The workingmen of Canada owe it  to themselves to extend this movement by a campaign of education and  publicity that will make itself felt in  every home in the land.

Suffragette  Leader Gets  Loud  Praise  .    as a. Popular  War  Orator  "Patriotic fervor draws, thunderous cheers in place of old-time jeers,"  is. the way a London newspaper heads  an article on Mrs. Pankhurst as a  popular war orator. The paper itself  is violently anti-suffragette, but hon-,  ors the war truce which the suffragettes announced at the beginning of  the war. ���������  It was only a year ago when a  speech by Mrs. 'Pankhurst was a signal for a riot, if allowed.to proceed  at all. Now she is described by a reporter in these words: "A graceful,'"  dignified figure tho suffrage leader  makes as she faces the audience.  Over a becoming black dress she  wears a black lace shawl; suspended  from a thin gold chain is a lorgnette  which she does not use. The Union  Jack centred across a curtain of  green forms the stage background."  Her women followers still send up  floral offerings to the stage, says the  reporter. In speaking, Mrs. Pankhurst carefully avoids passion and invective, but she presents her points  clearly and tellingly and with conviction- At the finish of her speech,  young suffragettes sell postcard  souvenirs for a patriotic fund.  tive for industrial jealousy, would be  like making love with a bludgeon,  managing a kindergarten with a whip,  or introducing faith, hope and charity  with the aid of thumbscrews.  The-one intent of modern commerce  is to bestow a benefit. The one intent  of war is to intimidate, cripple, maim,  and destroy. Commerce stands for  help and Happiness, war symbols suffering and disease.  War destroys your market, limits  your territory, lessens your prospect.

For Empire Federation  Where the Fit Survived  The i3iand of Lewis, where practically the entire male population has  volunteerel for active service, holds  a proud record for military prowess,  and furnishes the finest recruits for  the Highland regiments. A practice,  approved by Plato, "formerly prevailed here of putting to death by. exposure all weakly or deformed children,  and it is said by the most credible  historians that this custom continued  until "modern times." As a result, the  inhabitants are far superior in physique to other Highlanders, and consumption was quite unknown until  recently reintroduced by sickly Southrons.���������London Chronicle.  Sir    George     Perley   Says  Dominions  and Motherland Must Get Closer  Together  In a recent speech at the Koyal  Colonial Institute, London, Sir George  Perley said:  "The empire is a live thing. We  feel it to be so more than the ordinary English citizen because we have  been talking of it for years."  Sir George defines his idea of,Canada's relation to the empire in the  present crisis, pointing out that the  Dominion joined the war as a firm believer in the democratic ystem which  is at stake. "But while Canada was  happy to act as it had done last  August no one would say that the  present relationship of   the different  ireak in our business principles. The  buyer makes no gain. He parts with'  his share of the barter, and gets nothing valuable in return. At "ever'y-  other counter thero was gain on both  sides; here the gain.is ou one side  only. The transaction limps; it is '  false to business principles. It represents economic waste- It must  cease.  "It remains, eternally true that  business to be legitimate must" produce gain to both parties dealing.   '  "The economic waste becomes a  multiplied factor when the argument  is extended to liquor's effect on the  purchaser who consumes it. ���������'-"���������'.'  "The-liquor traffic is a parasite. :":  Any .business, blocd that it has is -.  sucked *from the vigorous body of  healthful business. It contributes nothing, but draws heavily. If traffic  in lumber, groceries, dry goods and  other legitimate business gave.no  more value than liquor gives, and yet  received as these-lines of business do,  and as liquor does, all business would  collapse. The quid pro quo would be  acting. If a town or city prospers  where traffic in liquor is allowed, its  prosperity is less than it should be by  just so much as liquor takes. It gives  nothing, and what it takes is so much  substracted from the general gain. It  is .a parasite, a leach. Prosperity may  continue, but it carries a needless burden. A teri-mule team may haul a  heavy load up a hi,ll, even though  there may be one span on the rsar end  pulling back.. Unhitch the pull-back  team and the'load will rnov. forward  easily Unhitch the liquor drag and  you accelerate the movement of legitimate business."
