C, FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAR  "'X.  MEETING OF  IL  Mayor Gaw'and . Aid. Bickerton,  Bonthron, "Donaldson, Manly and  McCallum were present at the regular meeting-of the city council on  Monday evening.  A communication from the agricultural department, Victoria, urged  upon the council the necessity of  adopting a more stringent bylaw  providing-for the extermination of  ' noxious weeds. It was- decided to  comply with the request.   :  A letter from McQua'rrie & Robertson's solicitor, of Nelson, asked  the council to urge the" registrar^ of  land -titles to accept the present  - numbers of the lots in- their  , eubdivision in the West end. On  motion, the council decided to urge  tbe registrar to register the plan- as  approved by the city.  The  chairman  of  the  board   of  works reported that a portion of the  approach to the Fourth street bridge  was in need of repairs owing to  the  rains  having  washed some of   the  ground away.    A concrete or  stone  retaining wall should be built.   The  branches of the shade trees' on some  of the streets were too low, and'they  should betrimmed.in order  not  to  give the citizens a free bath  on   wet  days.    Nothing had yet  been done  with the fill near Dr,   Averill's   residence.    If   the trestle   went out of  commission, the old   roid   might be  repaired so that it would answer for  traffic.    The council should  decide  in what   manner  it   wisned to have  'the street sprinkling done this slim ���������  mer���������by contract or day  labor.    It  would not be a   paying  proposition  to use the city team for   this  work.  The city team had been   busy  during the past few days cutting weeds.  Joe Spratt had entered a complaint  against the city digging  away  any  more   of   the   street in front of his  property.  The chairman of the health and  relief committee reported "that there  were not many cases in the city in  need'of aid at prevent. The council should prohibit all parties from  dumping refuse and debris on the  river bank, as the city had a nuisance grounds for this purpose. The  debris had been cleared off Mr.  Plath's property in the West end.  He had not understood that it vyas  was the wish of the council to give  Mrs. Skrebneff light at minimum  cost, and therefore be had taken no  action in the matter.  The chairman of the cemetery  committee reported that the cement  posts for the fencing of the burial  grounds were naarly all ready. He  also asked for instructions in regard i  to the destruction of noxious weeds  in the cemetery.- !  The chairman of  the' water and  light committee reported  that  Mrs  Japp was pressing her application for;  city water.   The committee, he said, '  had   decided  to ^hold all future ap  plications   in   abeyance   until   the  revenues from taxes began   to come '  in. :  On motion   of  Aid.

The clerk ,was authorized "to pay:  the bill for clearing away the debris  from Mr. Plath's lots, and instructed  to. charge the same against the property. ,.  The health and relief committee  was empowered to supply Mary  Skrebneff with light at the minimum rate, provided her house is  wired.  The board oLworks was instructed to have the shade trees along the  streets trimmed of their lower  branches.  ���������v.  The chairman of the cemetery  committee was authorized to have  the new fence around the cemetery  erected.  On motion of Aid." Bickerton and  Manly, the resolution granting free  water and light to families of soldiers at the front was lescinded owing to the unsatisfactory manner in  which this arrangement has worked  out.    During   a  discussion   on this :  subject it developed that the parties' ��������� 0ne of lDe severest electrical  did not really derive any benefit storms ever-witnessed in this dis-  from this concession, as the amount tr������ct passed over the city yesterday  was deducted   from   their   govern- \ afternoon.

Mr. Cooke is secretary of the  Ministerial Union of the lower  Mainland, B. C, but he represents also hosts of loyal  citizens of every creed and  party throughout the whole  province, and every thinking  man and woman who has!  this country's best interest, at  heart will do well to hear him.  look as if artificial irrigation   would  have to be resorted to this  summer.  Greenwood has organized a volunteer home guards company, with an  age limit of IS and over. Drills will  be held three times per week.  Not being considered in the interest of the public at present, a liquor  license for the hotel at Carmi has  been refused.  The Sally mine at Beaverdell has  recently shipped three cars of ore to  the Trail smelter.  Tomarrow, Saturday, the annual  basket picnic and outing of the Bap  tist Sunday school will be held,  weather permitting, on ih'e Stafford  grounds. A cordial tnvitation is ex  tended to all the .members and  friends >of the school, incuding the  cradle roll and home departments.  The party will leave the church at  1:30 p. m.  If DECLARES  New York, June 15.���������A dividend of SI.50 per share was declared today by the directors of the  Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power Company, Limited,  after a suspension since last summer. Tbe last quarterly dividend  of SI.50 was declared May 19, 19H.  The dividend is payable August 3,  to stock of record July 16.  ment allowance.  . The clerk was authorized  to issue  a new deed to Mr. Moore for lot 20.'  The alley imgrovement bylaw was  reconsidered and finally passed.  Aid. Manly was granted leave to  introduce a tax and rate levy bylaw  It passed its first two readings, was  considered in committee, and then  under a suspension of the rules was  read for the third time. The tax  rebate bylaw, also introduced by  Mr. Manly, was advanced to the  same stage.  Aid. Bonthron   gave   notice   that  at tbe next meeting he would intro-  ligbts   and   telephones   were   temporarily put oul of commission.  .- Next Sunday will be oberved - as  Patriotic and Children's day In the  Baptist church.  The   rainy   season   is still in evidence, and at  present it   does   not  OCAL RELIEF  duce a bylaw providing for the destruction of noxious weeds within  the municipality.  The monthly accounts were ordered to be paid, and the council ad;  journed until 5 o'clock Wednesday  evening.  Parties  interested   in   the  movement have called a meeting, to be held in the Empress  theatre on Sunday  afternoon,  June 20, at 3 o'clock, for  the  purpose of taking the preliminary, steps   in the   formation  of a local relief society.    The  ebject of the society will be to  raise funds to procure  necessaries and  comforts  for  our  soldiers at the front. All loyal  citizens are not only expected  but requested  to  attend the  meeting.  .'V;U'    ���������'���������>i?.i*>-.-  - .Vi--w"-  '''' [y$$������-  High Life In Peru  Prof. Alsworth Ross of the University of Wisconsin, in an article in  the Century Magazine entitled "Peru,  the Roof of the Continent," tells of  the difficulty of merely sustaining life  in the highest altitudes among the  Andes.     He saysj  Life at Cerro de Pasco, nearly a"  leegue up, is as trying as life uuder a  diving bell ab the bottom of the ocean.  The newcomer gasps for air like a  stranded fish, and wakes up at night  gulping mouthfuls out of the thin atmosphere. Three quick steps put you  out of breath, and after climbing a  flight of stairs you must sit. down for  a rest. "I know," pauted a "tenderfoot," "how I'll feel- when I'm eighty."  No employee is sent up by the company unless he has passed a physician's examination, but occasionally  one gets blue in the face and has to  be sent down forthwith. Thus the  Inca Chronicle often has such items  as, "Jake L., who returned here last  April, has been sent home with his  heart machinery in bad shape."  The young fellows play tennis and  ball, and even indulge in track athletics; but the pace must be veiyslow.  Singing is not popular, for you can  not get the breath to hold a note.  Pneumonia is sure death here within  forty-eight hours, so that the sufferer  must be rushed down to sea level in a  special train that costs the company  S500. The typhoid patient, too, must  flee, and the northern women must  descend to Lima to bear their babies.  The mining company's Americans  are usually big, athletic, deep-chested  men, strong of jaw, sinewy of nrip,  and masterful of manner. They are  svell paid and looked after, but too  many of them squander money and  vitality in fighting off the demon of  oneliness.  W. Newton, soil and crop instructor of the department of agriculture, Victoria, was in town Tues-  and Wednay inspecting the demonstration plot at the race track.  A traveller in the city Lst .Saturday stated thai the interned aliens  are working on the government road  between lulgeworth and Lumby.  Mr.   and   Mrs.    Herbert   Bryant  have   returned   from   their  honey  Inioon to the coast.

A GOOD CHEW IN A CLEAN WRAPPER.  10 CENTS PER PLUG  Extending the       iPlea of the Women  raoe  Not      Ridicule  Ways,   They  War  Affords   Valuable   Opportunities  For Developing  New Trade  The following particulars .of Canada's opportunity lo extend its trade  bectmso of the derangement of German commerce and manufacturing  are given in a bulletin issued by Sir  George 10. Foster, minister of trade  and commerce.  "The opportunty for Canadian producers to supply what was formerly  purchased from Germany is evident.  Foremost among them may be mentioned the South American Republics,  where German commercial methods  have been especially successful. The  war lias given a decided check to German trade with these countries. A rearrangement of commercial relations  must ensue whereby othar countries,  including Canada, will iind an opportunity. The country, moreover, that is  the first to fully realize the significance of this opportunity, will have a  decided advantage over others in their  efforts to capture a share of the South  American trade lost for a time to Ger-/ to the fact that her  many and other warring nations of  Europe.  'That the people of the United  States are fully alive to the possibilities of the trade with South America  is evident from the recent' establishment of a South American bureau in  connection with the United States department of commerce. From figures  prepared by this bureau it may be  seen that the Sotu.i American conn-  tire's in 1912 imported merchandise  the value of which totalled ?9G0.304,-  7r>!L Of this amount the United Kingdom claimed 28- UJ per cent., Germany  I8.fj2 per cent... the United Slates 15.96  per cent., and Canada i!S per cent.  Over   two-thirds   of  the   above   sum,  Newspapers     Should  Farmer   and   His  Say  A compilation of letters published  by tlie U.S. department of agr.culture  is unique among government.publications. The letters are from farm women throughout the United Stairs,  ai.d in turn the writers take the department into Micir confidence as to  their  soci A  and  labor needs.  Loneliness, isolation and lack of  social and educational opportunity on  tho farmer form tho text of the letters  mainly, but on the other hand, many  women express complete contentment  willi  farm life and  assert that  moreover,   is   accounted   for   by   the ! portant wo-Jc.  they   would  be   unwilling   to   change  lots with oity wonrjn.  One wouiaii in Alaiue, and her letter  is characteristic or. many, wrote:  "Our schools have enducated our  children away from .he soil. Our newspapers have ridiculed the fanner.  Much recent legislation has been unfavorable to him. The wife is more  sensitive to the idea that the farmer  is in an inferior class, more sensitive  children go,to the  cities and become unlike her. The  rural woman has lost her neighbors:  all around her are abandoned farms  and empty houses thai, a little while  ago, were happy homes."  These letters are in reply to a circular sent"out by,Ike department to  the housewives of 35,000 crop correspondents, asking ti.em to suggest  ways in which tho United States could  render more direct service to the farm  women of the Uni ed States.  Like the writer from Maine, many  writers express tlie opinion that the  tendency of the city people and newspapers to make the farmer a butt for  jokes and the subject of cartoons has  tended   to   discourage him in his im-  imports into the two countries of Ar  gontine and Bray.il. It is therefore  worth while to consider in detail the  articles imported into the two counJ  tries, special reference being made to  those in which it is thought an increase in Canadian trade may result  through the cessation of Germany's  exports."  Through   the   efforts   of    Canadian  commissioners in South America offic  ial  figures  of  routine  imports  are  shown in the bulletin, and from these  it appears that from 1908 to 1912 Argentine's    imports    from Germany increased from t'.7,S'VT,000 pesos (a pesos  being equivalent to    91? cents) to <>:!,-  941,503   pesos,   while   those   from   the  United States in    the same peiiod increased from 35,597.000    pesos to 59,-  l:?t;,951 pesos, and those o  Kingdom  from 93,371,000  22,9 pesos. Canada's exports to the Argentine  in 1912 amounted  to only 2,-  266,257  pesos.    From  this  it appears  that Germany improved her trade position with the Argentine more rapidly  than did the other nations.  Sir George  Foster continues:  "Of the Argentine tariff it may be  said that it is designed for the most  part Cor the purpose of affording revenue and not from the desire of discouraging importations.   The demand  is therefore largely for finished manufactured goods and of these Argentine  imports a large quantity,    practically  every variety of article of European  or North American manufacture being  included therein.    Of   the articles of  which Germany has    supplied a considerable quantity in the past, the following  may  be  mentioned:   Pig  and  sheet  iron, steel rails, wire,  machinery, electrical    supplies, automobiles,  all kinds of liar ' .v..re, cutlery, tools,  clocks,  jewelery.  ctj-;   also    a large  amount   of  textiles,    principally   silk  goods, cotton hosiery, cotton cloth and  woollen      tissues:   drugs,   dyes   and  chemicals;    paper     and   wood   pulp;  pianos,  canned  am',  fancy   foodstuffs.  These articles  can   no  longer be  obtained from Germany."  Mow far Canada is able to take advantage' of this opportunity for in-  ereasefl trade is shown by the figure.;  which Sir George includes in his statement. Of Canada's exports to Argentine in 1912 all except 500,000 pesos  consisted of manufactured lumber, although it appears from life figures furnished by Argentin- to Canada that  Argentine imports of manufactured  lumber totalled over 6.000,00 pesos.  An examination of the figures furnished by Argentine shows that her imports of paper and wood pulp amount  to more (hair ?loooo,Ono ami that  Oornifiny furnishes about one-half,  while !i<m- coal supply, the bulk of  which heretofore has come from  Great. Britain. co:-ts her over $25,000,-  OOii annually. Canada, it appears,  furnishes none of the Argentine's  supply of drugs, dyes and chemicals,  most  of  which  come  from  Germany.  'I say.

U. 1051  ...Several of the winters hold that the  constant picturing of the'farmer as an  unintelligent, unprogrcssive, poorly-  dressed comic character encourages  city people to look down upon him and  his family and to make unfair social  discrimination against his wife and  children.  Some of them feel that *lhis tendency to rank the farmer's wife lower  in the scale of intelligence and-usefulness than that of ether occupations explains in pari, at least, the desire of the boys and girls to get away  fiom the farm and east their lot-with  city people.  The difficulty   of securing domestic  help  forms   the   text  of  letters   from  thirty-six States.  The applicatio    of the co-operative  the United ! principle to their affairs is suggested  o US,669,- j b>' '"any. in particular they see in it a  way of escape from tho drudgery of  the weekly washing���������one of the heaviest tasks they say  that falls  to  the  farm woman's lot.  A favorite idea in sections where  co-operative creameries arc common  is to have the laundry run in-connection with it. After the laundry has-  been successfully established, a bakery can be added and the/service extended in other ways.  Women in almost every State hold  that tlie greatest service the 'department could render to the farm population would be the systematic improvement of the    ountry roads.  Here are extracts from letters written by New York .farm women:'  "The   more   "progressive   farm   women are doing their own peddling and  running the hen and egg business independently  and     supporting    them-  j selves nicely.    This tends to broaden  | views, as the seller comes into con-  ; tact with"business people.    I do not  j believe the general farm woman now-  | adays  lives  as  narrow a life  as  the  ! "bridge whist fiend.' "  i     "1  think   that   the   farmer  and  wife are more in. partnership than  j other class of people.    Whatever  ! department   of   agriculture   does  j help  the  farmer is  of benefit to  I wife."  "Although she fully- realizes city  I life cannot be reproduced ou a farm,  j she feels the lack tf social life, which  : is the great drawback to the rural  | community. The Hoosier pleasures of  ! fifty years ago no longer please her.  ; She i'ecls the spirit of progress as  I well as her city sister, iter many  : duties gr ally hinder her desire to  i entertain or go to social affairs. She  often stays alone for weeks at a time  ; with only her own family."  I "A little more money to grease the  ; wheels of existence i.s what the average farm woman needs. The latest  j lubricant in this household is a talk-  I ing machine. It was with great glee  I that i announced that the 69 cents  1 saved on ninety-eig' t pounds of flour  I would almost buy a record."  j "It may be summed up'in two words  : ���������drudgery and economy. These seem  : to pursue her from 'he time she signs  [ her name to the mortgage that is  ____  I given   in   the   purchase  of   the   farm  the ii ut'li   old ehv> ' unl'1 Llial- ot!ier lmlc when, weary and  - '" i worn, she gives up the unequal strtig-  i gle and is laid to rest.   This interest,  paid on the farm mortgage, robs the  farm woman of much.  "We bought a .110 acre farm; my  husband was a good dairyman and a  first class butter maker, but we  could scarcely pay taxes and interest  and live, until I took up crochet work'.  I managed thus to pay $200 on the  mortgage every year, but the strain  was too great and overwork rtiinet  my health, but the mortgage was paid  Meantime I had only one new hat in  eight  years  and   one    second    hand  his  any  the  to  his  dress, earned by lace work. We are  of the better class, and have to keep  up appearances, but the' struggle is  heartbreaking and health destroying  We have worked night and day. Our  two sons have had to give up a higher  education to work, and both have decided mechanical and constructive  ability. ��������� -  "Suggest some feasible plan for caring for the farm help without making  them a part, of tho family. Many ot  them arc dirty, vulgar, profane and  drunken, yet they eat at fable with  us; our children listen to and become  familiar with their drunken babbliu?.-:.  Our privacy- is destroyed, our tastes  and sense of decency are outraged.  We are forced lo wait upon and clea.i  up after men who would not be allowed to ���������enter the houses of men of  any other vocation.-Do' r.of misunderstand, the farmers' wives care little  for social status. It is not because  they are hired men that we wish them  banished, but oftentimes they are personally unworthy."  "A central laundry, where the weekly wash could be carried, would be  a" wonderful labor lightencv."'  "Sho will and should demand rural  creameries, bakeries, laundries, soap  factories and dressmaking und'imVlin-  ery -establishments-''  "Give us better roads���������earth roads;  We pay money for road tax.

"There is nothing in my' opinion  that woud benefit the women on the  farms as much as to improve our  country roads. Amend our laws and  enforce them, prohibiting autos from  speeding through the "country and  making it unsafe for a woman to  drive."  Treatment of Smut  Commissioner Clark writing in the  Agricultural War Book on '���������Treatment  for Smut Prevention," says .that,.,in  Eastern Canada there is considerable  smut in the grain crops each year,  but that it has no! been sufficiently  prevalent to make treatment for.its  prevention "general.

Demand For Breadstuffs Will Soon be  Enormous % .  There is at the present time about  two billion bushels of wheat, the production of the countries at war, tied  up. This- is about one-half the world's  total production of wheat, which is  four billion bushels. One writer argues that granting that tho warring  nations produce a one-half crop in the  coming year, a deficit of one billion  bushels will still be shown. The three  countries "upon which the filling of  this deficit of one billion bushels will  rest are the United States, 'Canada  and Argentina. The combined output  of these countries'"is only 1,249,000;  their exportable surplus would, of  course, be much less, so it can easily  be seen that the question is not one  to be easily solved and it behooves all  the above countries to increase their  respective productions as much as  they possibly can, for when the war  is over and trade begins to re-establish itself and tho nations undergo  a process of rehabilitation, the demand for all breadstuffs will be enormous.

Robbed the Dead Belgians  Sinister  Story of an   Infamous  Trick  -   Played by the Germans  ���������As some Belgian soldiers were  ncaring an abandoned farmhouse in  Flanders recently a horse suddenly  neighed; and a solitary figure in a  grey cloak galloped madly towards  a brook.  ;   A   dozen    'rifles   cracked,   and  the  rider fell on  the ground.  When the Belgians entered the  farmhouse they found seventeen dead  and -a-few- wounded- comrades.  From the wounded they learned  this sinister story:'  Shortly after the party entered the  farm house they lit the stove and sat  around it.  Shortly afterwards they heard footsteps above, and a man-with a green  bonnet pulled'over his eyes and wearing a groy- cloak slowly descended  the ladder from the loft.  He said the farmer, his cousin, had  sent him to get some money hidden  in the loft, and the Belgians, believing  him io be an inhabitants the countryside, let him go. ...  Soon the little party fell' asleep,  being overcome by subtle poisonous  fumes from the stove. Plow long  they drowsed they could not tell, but  they -were rudely aroused by shells  bursting in the-farmhouse.  They'tried to rise, but the stove  neld them prisoners, and so it was  that some of them were killed and  others injured by shells.  Suddenly^the man re-appeared, and  finding them all helpless, drew his  revolver and menaced them.  Then he went through the pockets  of the dead, placing the proceeds of  his infamous robbery into' two immense pockets under his mantle.  When he had finished robbing the  dead, he- turned his attention to the  living, incapable of - resistance. But  at that moment his horse neighed,  and he made his vain dash for life..

"I began to use Postum 8 years ago;  not because I wanted to, but because  coffee, which f dearly loved, made my  nights long, weary periods to be  dreaded and unfitting me for business  during the day." (Tea is just as injurious as coffee, because it, too, contains the health-destroying drug, cat"-  f- ine).  "On advice of a friend, I first tried  Postum. making it carcHilly as suggested on the package. As I had always used 'cream and no sugar,' I mixed my Postum so.

According to a consular report by  W. A: Beddoe, received by the department of trade and commerce, the  wheat crop of New Zealand is short  and the visible supplies previous to  the new crop are not sufficient to  supply the daily demand for flour.  On "November 18, 1911, a wheat census was taken, showing that there  were in.the hands of the merchants  132,803 bushels, while according to a  census taken on January 11), 1915,  showing the large decrease to -15.868  bushels. This is a decrease in the  stocks on hand of 87,000 bushels in  two months. 'Although the ultimate  forecast had not been made at the  time of his writing, he stated that ow:  ing to drought this season's crop  would be short and points out the  fact that a market for Canadian  wheat and Hour will be available in  New Zealand for some time to come.  During the season .1912-1:: the crop  of wheat from 189,869 acres was 5,-  179,026 bushels- The exports amounted to 565,205 bushels, as against l,-  254,557 bushels the previous year.  New Zealand has now ceased to be an  exporter of wheat, and is an importer. Except in times of shortage when  prices rise above a normal level, New  Zealand farmers generally find other  crops more profitable. Last year's  crop of wheat was insufficient for  local needs, and the war demand, together with the drought in Australia,  has made importation difficult.  The export of wheat'from New Zealand has been prohibited until further notice. There is every indication  that, the shortage in the coming crop  will be even greater than in the past  season. This means a continued market for wheat and Hour from Canada.  In this connection, Canadian exporters of wheat and flour should always  quote C.I.F. and E-' New Zealand  ports. In some -cases the rate from  Vancouver to New Zealand .may- be  ascertained in New Zealand after de-  lav, but this system of quotation is  not to be encouraged. The exporter  should ascertain the rail rate to Vancouver, the ocean rate to New Zealand ports, and the insurance, and  quote C.I.F. and E., and the quotation will be accepted or rejected by  cable.���������Journal .of  Commerce.

Reversal of the Rule  For the first time in the history of  the United States, the flow of immigration has been turned back towards j  Europe by the war, and more aliens  are leaving that country than are  coming info it to make their homes.  Statistics recently made public show-  that the departures for the six months  from August, 1914. to February, PJli>.  have totalled 18,545 more than the  arrivals, including both emigrant and  non-emigrant aliens. The heaviest  emigration shown is among aliens  from Italy. Of these. 75,629 more departed than were admitted during the  six months, a result .due presumably  to the Italian reservists being culled  to the colors. The fact that Germany  does not head the list was probably  due to the vigilance of the Hritish  inspectors and the generous support  of their efforts rendered by the United States government.

This is evidently the  view the provincial government takes  of the question, because  this  year  the laws   requiring the  eradication  of  the   pest   are more stingent than  they have  heretofore been.    Under  the new act the province considers  the  city   the owner of  all property  within   municipality,   and   has  the  right to  enter action  against ' the  city for the violation of any   of  the  provisions of the act, and tu impose  a fine of from 825 to $100 and costs!  in case of conviction.

The  property owners  are  not   only ^required  to  keep their own land rfree  of weeds, but to the   centre   of  the  road, street or alley abutting on  the  samf.    The weeds most prominently  singled out by   the  departmenf  as  being specially noxious are the Canada   thistle, oxeye daisy, wild   oats,  ragweed, charlock, sorrel,    burdock,  wild mustard.

To Sell Fish to Newfoundland  Although bringing fish to Newfoundland would seem, like carrying coals to  Newcastle, there is a prospect that it  will be attempted ou a considerable  scale . this year. The proposition  conies from Iceland. Because of the  war, the markets of Northern Europe  are closed to the fishermen of that  island, and they are forced to seek a  new outlet. Since the fishing operations off the'Newfoundland coast will  be largely curtailed this season, as  a "result of (he large number of Newfoundlanders who have joined the  British army and navy, the Icelanders  think 'they will be able to dispose of  a large part of their product there. As  it is proposed to- purchase foodstuffs  and other goods for return cargoes  to- Iceland, the idea is looked upon  with favor in Newfoundland.  An Example For Montreal  Last year the municipal authorities  of Regina, Sask., aided the unemployed by placing at (heir disposal a  large number of vacant lots unculti-  .vated by ..the /proprietors. All such  lots situated, within the .limits of the  city were "catalogued," and, with the  permission of the owners, were then  convertsd into kitchen gardens by  people who were out of work.

Spring Blood  ��������� Is Watery Blood  How to Get New Health and  New Strength at This  Season  Spring ailments are not imaginary.  Even'the most robust find the winter  months most trying to their health.  Confinement indoors, often in overheated and nearly always badly veuti'-,  lated rooms���������iu the home, the office,  the shop and the school���������taxes the vitality of even the stronges1:. The blood  becomes thin and watery and is clogged wtih impurities. Some pcoplo  have headaches and a feeling of lau-  gour. Others are low-spirited and  nervous. Still others are troubled  with disfiguring pimples and skin  eruptions; while some get'up in the  morning feeling just as tired as when  they went to bed. Those are all  spring symptoms that the blood is out  | of order and that a medicine is needed. Many people take purgative medicines iu the spring. This is a serious  mistake. You cannot cure^ourself  with a medicine that gallops through  your system and leaves' you weaker  still. This is all that a purgative  does. What you nsed to give you  health and strength in tho spring is a  tonic medicine that will enrich-tho  blood and soothe the jangled nerves.  And the one always reliable tonic and  blood builder is Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. These Pills not only banish  spring weakness but guard- you  against the more serious ailmeuts that  follow, such as anaemia, nervous debility, indigestion, rheumatism and  other diseases due to bad blood. In  proof of this Mrs. D. E. Hughes, Ha-  zenmore, Sask., says: "About a year  ago I was badly run down, my nerves  were all unstrung,-and I could not go  upstairs without stopping to rest. As  1 was a long ways from a doctor I decided to take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  and in the course of a few weeks I  felt like a new person.. ��������� As an;:all-  round restorative I can heartily recommend this medicine."  If you are ailing this spring you  cannot afford, in your own interest,  to overlook so valuable a medicine  as Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

Dr. Pieroo'e Common Sense Madloai Adviser of 1003 Pages ANALYSIS   OF THE COST OF GRAIN  PRODUCTION  The" Necessity of Mixed Farming is Becoming More Pronounced  and  Investigations Carried  on in Canada Show that  Diversification Brings, Greater Prosperity  Probablv the most outstanding and  difficult problem for the l'armer,.,and  indirectly, the country as a whole, is  In foretelling the. result of a certain  crop, before it is planted. Few can do  this. The greater the pity, for, could  this gift be attained with any measure  of success, agriculture would he litted  from (to us a rather hackneyed  phrase) being more or less a game of  chance- This gift lacking; the necessity of crop diversification and mixed  farming is being more frequently cited. In a one-crop 'country (a country  w.here one crop, wheat, for instance,  is more or less tin; principal one, as  in Canada) this class of farming is  more to be urged than elsewhere, but  the.advantages to thd individual farmer in any section are equally great.  Naturally, exceptions to this, come  up, but as a rule, tte argument holds  true and this is strongly emphasized  by the statistical result of a recent  investigation carried on in this country. The Census and, Statistical Office of the Department of Trade and  Commerce, because there were .indications that in the northwestern provinces the profits from grain growing,  ��������� when -not supplemented by stock raising, were less remunerative than formerly, undertook to ascertain the cost  per acre in 1913, of producing the  more important crops, the value per  acre of the produce and the profit per  acre for each crop. The investigation  was supplemented by a similar one  carried on in 1911.  According to the American Analist,  the correspondents of the departments for the most part agree that  mixed farming is morc'profitable than  growing grain alone. This is true not  only becauso the fertility of the land  is maintained by the return, to the  ground of farmyard manure, but because the practice of mixed farming  insures cleaner an, richer land, and  cleaner grain, permits the best rotation of crops, provides labor all the  year round, and" creates a.home market for cheap fodder. Also, through  encouraging diversification, - it tends,  to some extent, to insure stability of  profits.  In the latter, some surprising variations between the two years on which  returns are made were developed. Of  the six crops investigated���������fall wheat,  spring whear, corn, oats, barley and  flax���������three show increased profits per  acre in 1913 over 1911. and three decreases. Fortunately the gains were  in the more important grains. Both  spring and fall wheat, yielded the  farmer more profit, per acre, the former showing a gain of over 14 per cent.,  and corn made an even better record-  rJ'he gain in corn was wholly due to  a substantial reduction in the cost of  producing  it.    Indeed,  the  value  per  acre of that crop was less in 191.3  than in 1911, and the reduction in  costs, amounting to $2.86 per acre,  was sufficient to offset this and still  show a far larger percentage on the  favorable side of the farmer's balance  sheet than any of the other crops.  This is. the more surprising when it  is considered that with all the oilier  crops the change in cost of production was practically nominal. The  greatest change in profit per acre was  "in flax, which,' notwithstanding a  small decline in' production cost, fell  off from $7.33 to $1.18. a loss of nearly 85 per cent. The loss in value per  acre of- this crop was $6,54, or 33 per  cent.,  , Somo interesting figures are presented showing the division of production costs in 1913. The principal  item in all cases was the cost of preparing the ground, which included the  items of plowing, disking, packing and  harrowing. There are little variation  in preparation costs,'"except for corn,  which was in the . eighborhood of 40  per cent, more than the average for  the other crops-- The cost of seeds naturally varied considerably, and was  the second item in importance up to  the harvesting time." The cost of  planting seeds ranged from 56 cents  for flax, to $1.27 for corn. The cost of  cultivation of J-he latter was also far  greater than for any of the others, being -$2.95 per acre, as compared with  46 cents per acre for flax, and 72 cents  for fall wheat, which was the highest  after corn. As a matter of fact, every  item In per acre cost of growing corn  is far greater than for the other crops  except for seed.  An interesting factor in the production cost sheet is that of rental value.  This figure was reached, where the  land was rented, by taking the average paid per acre; where it was owned, the rental value was ascertained  by a calculation of the value of the  land and the rate of interest on money  loaned, in the particular locality under consideration, on that kind of real  estate. The average value of the land  varies considerably In the different  sections of the Dominion, ranging  from $24 per acre in Alberta and Saskatchewan, to $167 _n British Columbia. In the latter province, however,  .the high value ot the land is due not  to grain but to fruit growing. For the  entire country, the average land  value, which includes in this case only  improved land growing crops, was  $40  in  1914. against $37 in 1912.  Throughout the Maritime Provinces  and in Ontario the prevailing rate of  interest was returned at 6 per cent-  last year; in Manitoba, Alberta and  British Columbia, S per cent., and in  Saskatchewan 9 per cent.���������Journal of  Commerce.  Freedom of Poland  New   Law   Gives   Self-Government  to  Polish Towns  A new law gives local municipal  eelf-government to all ���������'Towns in Poland, a substantial earnest of the  promised emancipation-"  .The language question is settled on  commousense lines. Correspondence  with state departments, as also with  public bodies, for private persons outside Poland, must be in the common  language of the state, namely Russian. Replies to letters addressed to  Polish municipal departments in Russia must be In Russian.  Municipal placards and similar notification must be in both languages in  parallel.

Minutes of meetings  and other official proceedings must  be'recorded in b.oth languages. It is  provided that any cases of disputed interpretation where both languages  have been used, shall be decided according to the stale language, namely  Russian.

A New Publication  Seasonable Hints For Farmers to Aid  Them in .Their Problems  A new publication, bearing the title  of "Seasonable Hints," has just been  issued by the Dominion Experimental  Farms, and it is proposed to continue  from month to month. The results of  many years' experience ai;g here  found compressed into pithy paragraphs and in its dozen pages, the  first number manages to cram enough  advice to.last a season. As its front  page reminds us:  "From the Atlantic to the Pacific  Oceans specially trained men are de-  A-oting their time to the study of your  problems, and will be pleased to discuss them with you- A communication  will not cost you anything, and may  result  in suggestions of value."  A postcard will bring you month by  month a handsome reminder of things  needing to be done, the best time for  purchases of seed, etc., and tells where  to get advice in case of difficulty. Mr.  .J. il.

German Officers Admit Emperor Indicated  Beforehand  Belgian Towns  to. be Devastated  M. Pierre Nofomb has written a  book "Les Barbares en Belgique,"  which is a kind ot 'supplement" or  "addenda" to the official documents  issued by_ the Belgian government.  M. Nothomb adheres to facts���������but  he gives'the story of Belgium's mar-  tydom with some regard to ,the  "human interest" which is hidden  away in cold official reports, though  Heaven knows the Belgian official  documents are full of tragic horrors  ���������intensely dramatic. M. Pierre  Nothomb���������as that excellent periodical "Everyman" points out��������� is first  of all a poet, and something of poetry  runs through all his prose, even such  grim prose as he deals with in his  book: While quoting copiously from  the official account, and without in  any way embellishing the simple  statemenfs of eye-witnesses, he yet  succeeds in making a passionate "appeal, less for pity than for" justice,  for his crucified country.  "Belgium,, though bruised and  quivering, is not dead. Nor will she  ever die, since in the eyes' of the  whole world she incarnates a' principle necessary to the life of the  world. She knows that her very sac-  rific.e and apparent death are the  most beautiful proofs of her living  reality. She is possessed of a touching confidence that neither repeated  trials, nor an oppression every day  becoming more odious, nor even  time itself can shake. And so- she  waits- Valiant amidst her bloodstained fields, silent, she appeals' by!  her very silence and proud suffering  to that' justice' for Avhich she hungers and thirsts."  It is less by the mighty battles  lost and gained than by the ruin and  devastation wrouglt that this great  war will be remembered. By the  vile atrocities she has committed,  and not by-dier military excellence  and powerful army, Germany will be  known to posterity.  Perhaps no one but a poet could  have described with such feeling and  beauty of language the German mutilation of the sacred and historic  monuments of Belgium, one who has  himself gazed on the tragic ruins of  the Draper's Hall at Ypres, and wandered through its roofless hall and  under its broken arches, and in the  neighboring ruin of Saint Martin  found with' a poet's delicate 'fancy in  the broken, mutilated ligure of the  Virgin a symbol of his country's  m-artyrdom. "The 'hands raised to  heaven were ;clasped in prayer .and  the face wore a smile of' ecstasy'.'  And I realized (hat though the barbarians-might destroy my country,  mutilating its beautiful buildings and  sacrificing its children, they could  never harm her soul."  Such graphic pages os~ those describing the German mode of procedure on entering a town or village  bring home to us the nightmare of  suffering through which the Belgian  people are passing, fo:* all that we  read with such feelings of horror and  indignation is 710 tragedy of the  past, but the actual happenings in  Belgium today.  And yet, not only are we in danger  of getting accustomed to that phrase.  "German Atrocities," but we do not  realize half the horror for which.  these two words stand. We are too  ready to shut our eyes  do not wish to see, and  what we do not wish to  does us good sometimes  truth put before  nakedness.

The British troops consisted  of   the   sorely   thinned   battalions   of  the Scots  Guards,  the  South    Wales  Borderers, and the Welsh and Queen's  Regiments,   which   held    hastily constructed trenches across the front of  Gheluvelt village.  There had bee-.: no time to perfect  these poor defences against the artillery and rifle fire of tho - no my, but  every British soldier kndw that the  position had to be held at all cost",  for 'once the line was broken there-  was nothing to slop the Huns' march  on Calais. Reinforcements had been  promised; the Worcesters were on  their way, but even then tho odus  would bo nine to on ft.  From long before dawn the battle  raged. Tho Germa.n artillery searched the British trencn from end to ond  and shelled the Chateau of Gheluve I.  where the battalion commanders were  quartered, causing their hasty removal to a dug-out in the chaieau grounds  Men fell, not by ones und twos, but by-  dozens and half-dozens, but those who  survived were as st.acly as if ou parade.

The'British held  their line, but at  terrific cost;    scores    lay    dead, aud  there     was   scarcely  an   unwoundod  e of trenches. The  for-j Welsh   regiment  in   the  centre    had  suffered heavily. Reinforcements from  the scant reserve behind the chateau  were hurried into the trench, and  than the German shelling commenced  all over again. The clay wore on, men  fell left and right, and as yet there  was no sign of tl e Worcester regiment. Towards dinic the . Germans  could be seen massing for another attack, and the British troops prepared  for a.final stand; there were no more  reserves, and if the Germans persisted in their attack nothing could stop  them.  The shelling redoubled in fury; and  then came the second attack." The  full fury was directed to the centre of  the line,' held by tbe Welsh regiment.  Hordes upon hordes of Germans passed  forward! Hundreds fell as they advanced, but where one fell two filled  his place. Right up to the trench  they came; right up and in. Then  it was cold steel. Tho Welshmen  fought stubbornly, dying rather than  give ground, but weight of numbers  told, and as night fell the enemy com-  manded the trench from the centre-  No quarter was given to'the British.  Savagely the Germans stabbed about  tl.eiu- Bayonets ���������ere thrust into  ���������lead and living, and many a British  soldier, but wounded by a Prussian  bullet, was murdered by a Prussian  bayonet.  On  the left the Scots Guards still  held  their lino and  on the right the  Queen's were at bay, and before the  enemy could advance they had first to  deal  with  these gallant remnants  of  gallant regiments.

In addition to operating a receiving and grading warehouse in Regina. arrangements are being made to  accept delivery cl' carload lots of  wool at any local shipping point in  the province. This arrangement  should adt". materially to the value of  the undertaking as there are many  points whore three or four breeders  could combine to make up a car lot,  thereby increasing price", by reducing freight charge's.

Last year some ISO of tho sheep  raisers of Saskatchewan took advantage-.of the offer of the government  to market the clip for men who would  prepare their wool in accordance with  tlie directions drawn up by the department.  A total of G9.-I04 pounds of wool  were assembled in a varehousc in  Regina, and sold in car lots to a  firm of American wool dealers. An  average price of 1G.47 cents was  paid to the producers after defraying  all cost for freight: to Regina, cost  of sacks, twine, and other incidental  expenses. Considering that prices  received in former years ranged from  ID cents to K5 cents per pound, tJ1 --  results were most satisfactory.  Compensation for the  Loss of Live Stock  In Event of Foot-and-Mouth Disease  Spreading to  Canada  Canadian farmers wili be compensated for loss of live stock in the  event of the foot-and-mouth disease  spreading from the United States to  the Dominion.

Mr. Ross directed the attention of  the government, and particularly the  department of agriculture, to the  serious conditions outlined in recent  reports and the necessity for protecting farmers from loss and injury  should the caltio contagion break out  in Ontario or any other part, of the  Dominion. Mr. Ross asked the minister of agricutlure to give immediate  assurance that the department was  taking cognizance of the situation and  was prepared and ready to protect  Canadian farmers.  lion. Martin Burrell, minister of  agriculture, suggested that Mr. Ross  firing the matter up at a later stage  when the estimates of the department  were under consideration. Mr. Ross,  howi-ver, pressed for somo immediate  assurance, and the minister then stated 1 hat in the event of the foot-and-  mouth disease spreading from tho  t'nited States lo Canada, which was  not expected, arrangements would be  made to give to Canadian farmers  ample compensation for any stock  which might be slaughtered.  Over a considearble area of the  west the increase in acreage under  crop will average over forty per conr.  That is good news.
