Third street had been taken up, and  the work" of repairing the walk on  Riverside avenue was in progress.  The Grand Forks Concrete company  had submitted figures tor building  the ceuient sidewalk in front of the  Grand Forks hospital of "$1.45 per  lineal foot without curbing, or $1.70  per lineal foot with curbing. On  motion,' the company was given the  contract to construct the walk.  The matter of removing a portion  ���������of the sidewalk on Government  avenue was referred to the board of  works.  The matter of arranging for the  collection of milk samples for testing purposes was referred to the  health and relief committee.  The chairman of the water and  light committee recommended that  free water be given the tennis clubs  . for sprinkling the courts, the sprinkling to be done out of the lawn  .sprinkling hours if it interfered with  with the water supply on the line.  The recommendation was accepted.  Aid. Allen thought it would he a  good idea to enrich the city finances  by fining some of the motorists who  exceeded the speed limit. According to the provincial law, the driver  of a car, if arrested for speeding,  has to prove that be is not exceeding the prescribed rate of speed. On  motion ot Aid. Allen -and McCallum, the council decided to strictly  enforce the laws governing motor  cars, both regarding the speed limit  and the age requirements of-drivers.  . The rate and tax levy bylaw    was.  reconsidered" and finally passed.        !  The   tax   lew ��������� bylaw was   reconsidered and finhHy p>is������ed.  Aid.

McCallum was granted leave  to introduce a milk vendors' bylaw,  which was advanced to the third  reading stage. All milk sold in the  city, in less quantities thin one gallon, must be offered' for sale in  standard milk botties, and no person vvill be allowed to keep cows  within the oity limits unless the  same are registered at the city office,  in order that the premises may "be  inspected by the heahh"olficer from  time to time.  remarkable character on.

As far "as The Sun is concerned,  the following article,-rfrom the Nico-  lo Valley News, is an enigma:  An iufanf baby boy   died at  the  local hospital on  Friday  afternoon,  a short   time, after entering the institution,   from   pneumonia,     The  child was three months  and   fifteen  days  old.    Enquiries   have   determined   that   when   the   child  was  about   oue month  old the parents  went  to    the    Boundary   country,  eaving the new born    baby    in   the  care   of   the   eldest   daughter, some  seventeen   yeais  old._    For  several  months the family, comprising   the  father and mother  and   eigbt  children��������� boys   and   girls   ranging   in  steps from a few yeafs  to  seventeen  ���������lived,    eat, moved   and   slept  in  one room smaller than   the   average  horse barn.   Since the birth   of   the  child the eldest daughter apparently  did   her   best  under the awful circumstances   to   raise   the   little one  aiid four - r tive of her   brothers and  sisters iu the shack,   the remainder  of the family having previ >usly gone  to Grand Forks    Shortly  after  the  funeral (arranged aud to be paid for  by   the   cit)���������iu other   words,   the  people of   Men ill) the rest   of   toe  famiiylelt here by the K.V.R. train  on   Wednesday to join their parents,  who sent money for tbeir-   transpor  lation but did not come to   the city  to lay their little oue in its last resting place   in   the  graveyard on the  hill.   . ;  As impartial observers in close  touch with local afiairs, it seems to  us that there is a strong connection  between the circumstances under  which the family was living, the ac |  tions of the parents, and the death  of the child. Was this not a case  lor investigation by our civic health  or police authorities or the coroner?  The husband lazily daubed so called  "pictures" for his wife and numerous family to peddle as a means of  sustenance, supplemented by what  they could pick up by their wits,  when, as a strapping, healthy fellow he had every opportunity of-  getting work to provide   proper  liv-  church, resigned to accept a. \ca 11   to  Neepawa, 'Man.,    He   will-assume  charge of the new field  the  first  of  July, spending the   closing  week of  the peesent month with his brotber,  F.

Mr.  King  holds farwell services   this   Sunday  This action on the part of Mr.  King  was not unexpected by  his  friends  as it had of late been rumored   that  a Manitoba visitor had  interviewed  him   on    behalf   of   the   proposed  change, and there' had   been   some  correspondence on the matter. After  three years of service here  and  the  urgent appeal that had come to him,  Mr.   King,   though   regretting   the.  thought of severing connection   with  his present associates and friends in  Christian work, felt it his clear duty  to respond to the larger opportunity  in Manitoba^.    Both Mr.  King  and'  Mrs. King are firm believers  in the  Gateway City as a prospect  for   increasing population, growing indus  try and a fruitful field of- usefulness  in Christian service.   They are   a! o  enthusiastic over this place as   ideal  service by the n embers of the local  Knights of Pythias lodge. Suitable  music will be rendered by the choir,  and Rev. J. D.

A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS PER PLUG  oy  s'  There   Is  Now Practically Four Scout  Institutes and TJwo Ambulances  Wo/king  Among   Troops  in France-  , On revisiting the "Mercer's Arms'  at Christmas/1 found a change in the  place -since. 1 made a' sketch 'of it  which appeared in the" last Gazette.  The swampy surroundings have  given .place to good 'metalling and  raising of the ground surface. The  verandah has been walled in and  forms a valuable addition to the, accommodation; and good stoves now  add to its comfort on a cold night.  And the staff has done wonders to  rqake it homely and attractive to the  , men frequenting-it.  '', The Christmas festivities included  a. Scout tea at which France and Belgian boys -were present,-and a good  number of ex-Scou^e, and of "Old  Scouts" recently enrolled. It was a  jolly informal''gathering of all grades  of Scouts and- several new members  "took the', opportunity of being admitted to the brotherhood. Thanks to  the liberality of the Mercer's Company, a very cheery entertainment  was arranged for the men at Ilia hut  on Christmas Day and Boxing Day,  and was very fully appreciated by  them.  Our new hut, at the Etables Camp  is a splendid one, owing to its posi-  , tion, to do great work and to form  a particularly convenient rallying centre for ex-Scouts in H.M. Service. It  is one of the most'up-to-date institutes  in France, and is a great credit to the  Boy Scouts, whose name it bears, "^-ith  Then our immigration commissioner,  Mr. Ashton, not- only supplied an institute but is also acting as its "leader" or manager right up to the front.  It had the honor of being -wounded by  a shell splinter recently.  And we have been able within the  last few days to send another institute to the front occupied by the Canadian corps. This one ahs been purchased and equipped with the money  "sent over by the Canadian Boy Scouts  and wijl cause the men in the lighting fine to bless the boys they left  behind them.  Thus the Scout movement is doing  its bit to help to maintain that cheery,  good spirit among the men at the  front, which is going to be the highest possible value to their fighting efficiency.  But in addition to this, the spirit of  scouting which prevades our institute,  is fast drawing men to take an interest in our aims, and the brotherhood  of "Old Scouts" promises to become  a  widespread and  useful  oranch^  Enclosed in this copy of the Gazette  you will find a slip and an enrolment  notice regarding- "Old Scouts." I  earnestly hope that eacli one of my  readers will make use of these, and  with them gain an adherent to our  cause.    We greatly need  them.  Also we want more good men for  work in our huts and institutes. It is  grand work and brings tangible results, such as makes a man realize  that he is doing'his bit by being there.  Send in  your application.  that in addition to turning over all  rights to his patents he will devote his  (ime gratis to co-operating in installing the apparatus.  Discovery that the government is  willing to pay young Hammond a fortune for his .invention was made with  the introduclion in the house of the  fortifications bill. The siun of $750,-  000 was approved as a fair price, both  by military officials'and sub-committees.  There is the authoritative statement that Hammond refused to sell  his invention for a fabulous sum to  one of the European countries now at  war, explaining to the old -world bidder that no amount would tempt him  to give them the preference over his  native land.  When it became known Mr. Hammond had expended $300,000 in perfecting his device and had ' labored  continuously on it for eight years, the  sum he asked was considered reason-  'able.    _'-  Four "years ago he discovered the  principle for which all "had been  searching. For two--years he experimented under the eyes of officers of  the coast artillery and these experts  are convinced.  Mr. Hammond's plan involves the  control of the torpedo from a-station,  well .protected, some distance back  from the sea. The best method, he  has found, is to place the torpedo in  the prow of a boat, which can be propelled at a 50-mile rate, making it impossible to hit.  The boat .is controlled by radio  forces and sent against a battleship.  When a short distance away from the  target, the torpedo is propolled from  the b'oat/sagainst the target. But the  Hammond torpedo may be controlled  equal ease from an aeroplane,  from a height of one mile. Mr. Hammond is confident he can increase,this  distance to four miles, and send the  torpedo against "a warship 28 miles  from shore.  By repeated experiments Hammond  lias proved that by an ordinary attack from a control station on shore,  this torpedo can hit, 10 out of 15 times  a bamboo  rod one  inch -in  diameter  .^Chinese-Labor for France"  Qwirig  lo'lhe lack of labor in.  i  the  an  in.

The result is that  if radio force, in the form of a searchlight or other power, is turned on from  the ship being attacked, the torpedo  immediately turns toward the ship  and proceeds with accelerated speed  and force that cannot be overcome.  In addition to perfecting his torpedo and the method of controlling it  by wireless, Mr. Hammond has a system by which "the stealing of wireless  messages can be prevented. This also  is to become the exclusive property of  the United States, although it is admitted that his method of preventing  wireless thefts has a large commercial  value.  Saturday noon brought him the respite that'his lazy soul had craved for  all week, and, shutting down his desk,  he meandered out of the great warehouse into sunny, snowbanked. Main  street. . % -  He strolled into a bar, swallowed a  cocktail to discover an appetite, . and  whipped it into consciousness, with -a  second. Then he ambled across to his  pet- cafe. ���������  It was disgustingly full of khaki, he  reflected, and khaki was a color that  made him morally bilious. But -he  found. an isolated corner, aud with  eyes glued to his plate, so that he  seemed to hypnotize his food, he soon  ate his way from soup to syrup, not  neglecting a generous serving of halibut and roast veal.  "Whilst his second cup of strong coffee was 'cooling at his elbow���������he  drank this to steady his nerves for  pool���������he turned to the morning  paper, and scanned the Avar news. The  bloody battles of which he read, and  the 'noble sacrifice:: of brave* men,  might have been enacted on the.  planet Mars, for any appeal they made  to his slothful soul. But, like a man  who lies in bed between warm blankets, listening with pleasure to the  storm that howls without, so lo\'ed-he  to listen to tho -thunderous din of war,  as echoed through 'his daily paper,  what time he enjoyed the protection  of the greatest fleet that ever rode the  seas, and the most yaliant armies that  ever trod tho earth.  He laid down the sheet presently,  and turned -his mind to his own narrow little stage, on which he played  his' life. The afternoon and evening  lay before him like a long and pleasant road. How to extract the maximum 'of personal ease and pleasure  from the .forthcoming hours���������no other  thought possessed him.  He  debated,   as  though  it  were  a  question of vast importance, whether  he   should   play   pool  with   Tom   and  Dick, or divert himself at a matinee.  The clock struck one.  while  man's  along  Torpedo Control Device  Artillery   Officers   Approve   Invention  Perfected   by   Eight   Years'  Work  For $750,000 a young American inventor is about to surrender to Uncle  Sam all tho patents and the exclusive  right to tlie use of a device by which  a torpedo' can be launched ag-ainst a  battleship of an enemy and so directed and controlled by radio dynamic  forces either from shore or from aeroplanes us to insure its striking at a  maximum distance of 28 miles.

Although only 28 years old, young  Hammond has accomplished what  many of the military scientists of  other countries have tried to perfect  and'failed.  He alone possesses the secret, and  if congress accepts his offer he will  reveal it only to those designated by  the government.  Mr.  Hammond has    also stipulated  The Use of Sulphur on Chickens  We cannot'give too emphatic a  warning" against sulphur, which is a  very commonly recommended remedy  for the control of the lice on chickens,  because its use usually leads to disastrous results. A great many have  used sulphur and lard, a seemingly-  harmless combination, on chickens  that have been infested from the  lousy jMfothcr. Not knowing in just  what proportion to make this mixture,  the novice has added enough sulphur  to make it yellow, feeling sure that  it would be effective. .I������. is the effectiveness of this preparation that  leads to such bad results, for the  sulphur soon begins to burn the  tender skin of the chicken, making-  sores that seldom heal, and it is oft?n  the r-r p that from one-quarter to  one-hal of the young chickens thus  di : in from two to teti days  i, application is made,  much better .to use the lard,  sweet oil or blue ointment, but never  subject young chickens to the danger  of burns from the use of such an active agent as sulphur. Burns and subsequent sores should he guarded  against as much as possible, for more  harm will arise from these than from  the work of the lice.���������Connecticut  Agricultural   Bulletin.  ��������� blotched   horizon,  a pure trail of sil-  sliort    half-moon  treat :d  after [I  It  is  Granulated Eyelids,  Lyes inflamed by exposure  S.' to Cold Winds nnd Dust  /J>iinl0l6S5lr'C quickly relievod by Murine  lUUR OC*>Eyo Remedy.

Soaring its  way through a sulphurous inferno of  gunpowder smoke, the red sun had  dropped below the  and left in its wake  ver  stars.  In Hell Ditch, a  shaped trench, marking the very limit of the British advance, and distant  not two hundred yards from the.German lines, two companies of a Canadian battalion kept their guard. They  stood rigid as statues, their tunics  muddied and torn, resting on their  guns. Their eyes for lack of sleep���������  for this was the third day of their  watch���������Were bright as any star in the  heavens; their face's were grey and  gaunt, reflecting a great patience  which months of endurance had  stamped there and a noble adherence  to   duty.  They were waiting. The spirit of  an almost tragic expectancy brooded  over that trench. Until their eyes  ached and throbbed, the lookout men  searcehd the two hundred yards of  Xo Man's Land that lay between their  own glorified furrow, and that of the  enemy.  A crescent moon shed a faint light  ���������a light that tricked the imagination,  :\nd peopled, the intervening ground  with a thousand fantasies. A dead  Prussian that had stared all that day  into the very face of the sun, seemed  suddenly to move, to turn oil his side,  and move towards the shadow of an  abandoned machine gun. From that  gash in the earth where lay theXflun,  dark forms seemed to emerge and  creep forward. The silence of the  scene, so^sharply defined by the recent bombardment, seemed loaded  with   suspense.  "They coring up the curtain on  this act soon as they please," whispered  Pte. 4A1  to Pte. -1A2.  "Sure thing!" laughed back the  other;   "lot the orchestra strike up."  "There goes the big drum," he  added a moment later, as a deep boom  rent the air, sounding the enemy's  defiance. The challenge was hurled  back the next instant by our own artillery, which barked out three times,  and then, after a brief Interval, three  ���������times more.  As though tin's had been a pre-arranged signal, officers moved quickly  here ;i������d there; an order was whispered down the lines;  there  was not  rifle,  where   the  moon  flashed  his fixed bayonet..   -"  What inspired those men that they  stood so resolute there, waiting unflinchingly the word that would rush  them into' tho' outstretched arms of  Death?  They, had .seen .bleeding''Belgium  and stricken France, and were glad to  stake their lives to the last drop of  blood to defend from a like fate their  own homes in the great-West, and  the homes of their kin in the Old  Land. They stood there to push back  the bloody tide ofSavagery that  threatened to inundate the homes of  Q.d^ gentle-minded and God-fearingvpeople,  to defend their women and children,  and. to hurl down the gage', in the  name of Canada, against the most  ruthless and unscrupulous ' foe that  ever wielde'd the red sword and flaming torch of war.  At the moment'that these men had  fixed their -bayonets, and taken a  stiffer hold upon fheir guns, tho'Parasite made his way, towards the pool  rooms. -'   -  Outside the city hall, he suffered  a shock that filled his heart with a  sullen anger, and sent the blood rushing to his face until- the veins that  crossed his forehead triangularly  stood-out like a brand.  Before him,-barring his way, clothed in that ubiquitous khaki, stood a  recruiting sergeant, a man who.seemed to take his duties most seriously,  to judge by the~sharp~scrutiny of his  keen grey eyes.  "Won't you come and give -us' a  hand, m'lad? There's room for  you."  The words, though spoken quietly-  enough, seemed to the Parasite as a  lash across the face. A hundred times  a day,, this khaki-crazy world asked  him this question, not by word of  mouth, but by"wondering.glances covertly directed) at him by maid and  matron and man, whose brothers and  sons had gone forth ready to sacrifice all to avenge the desolated  hearths of Belgium, and to defend  their own homes from the most consummate butcher that ever blackened  an'd blood-smeared the pages of history.  "Don't waste your time on me," he  muttered," and pushed his way past  the sergeant, with averted eyes.  Once again he had denied his country. - - i  *        *        *        *  Hell Ditch had become the fulcrum  of Hell incarnate. Here the whole  world seemed to rock and shake and  -shatter, and the noisjes of a thousand  thunderstorms smote down upon the  trench, raining shrapnel. A furious  artillery duel was under way between  the British and the enemy's guns, in  addition to which two Prussian batteries concentrated their fire solely  upon Hell Ditch, the most threatening  point in that sector of the British  lines. They had got the. range to a  nicsty���������for days past they had got  the range���������and their shells, breaking  over and behind the men, kicked back  their load of iron hail, and raked the  ditch from end to end.  Curious bundles lay a.bosit in the  bed of that entrenchment, twisted and  blood-stained, and before the bombardment was an hour old, nine, ten,  eleven, and twelve platoons, the reinforcements,   filed  up   through  Hazard  was- thoroughly at home. They gave  him confidence, and at such times his  distaste for*.thc army grew more violent than ever. Ilis "business ties"���������  represented by so many Hollars per  week���������assumed greater importance'in'  his mind, until he felt quite a man of  affairs, in'whom tlie commerce of the  country was not a little involved.

Even as they  worked, a word winged its way eagerly down the line, and every able  soldier sprang swiftly to attention,  and even the wounded sought to rise.  Thirty seconds, forty seconds, fifty  seconds, they stood as on parade, and  then the command all had waited so  long and patiently for was whispered fatefully. from section to section,  and in three unswerving ranks,  bristling with bayonets, they swept  across No Man's Land���������No Man's  Land no longer.  Furious sprays of stee from machine guns, and -a cyclone of rifle bullets  searched and' devasted their ranks,  but could not stay these valiant boys.  In three successive waves, leach  stronger than the last, they, burled  themselves upon the Prussian trench,  and because they had seen the things  these Huns had done against th������  weak and hepless in mutilated France  and Belgium,' filling them with an anger- that seemed to scorch their hearts,"  they fought'as only those can who  know they light on the side of God  and the Angels.  And  when  the  red  dawn   broke,  a  Tittle more of France lay in the hands  of the Allies.  *    *    *    *  A week later, his leg shattered by  shrapnel, Pte. 4A1 lay in a French  hospital, and wrote a letter to his  mother, out in the Canadian West.  This letter, because of the "appeal  -it sounded, was published later in .a.  Winnipeg paper.  "Tell the boys," it ran, "that they  must come and help us, and not delay. They would not need any coaxing if they coud see what I have  seen, peaceful villages and innocent  country towns burned to the ground  for sheer spite, and women and children mutilated, and worse. No man deserving of the name, can know that  such things are, and not lend a hand  to stop -them."  The Parasite, seated in his favorite  cafe, put down the paper in which he  had just read this passage. He looked  troubled and perplexed.

And whilst Death himself stood over  them, and lashed them down with a  flail of steel, these men did not flinch.  They were soldiers. Months'of hardships, or uncomplaining endurance of  every kind of peril, of' unswerving  obedience to duty, had made them  soldiers. They were purged of all  the little follies am: excesses of their  recruit days. The i.istinct to fight for  their country against her foes, which  had first prompted them to enlist, this  seedling of unselfish sacrifice, had  grown and developed into a great  ideal.  They were the bulwa>ks of their  country. They stood between their  homes and Devastation. They fought  the.most ruthless and revengeful foe  that ever Hate inspired to deeds of  shame.

There are still 100,000,000 bushels  of wheat to be marketed by the farmers jarid there are 45,000,000 bushels  actually on the farms not moved out of  the bins. All this grain has to be  moved east, the elevators have to be  emptied of their contents and all this  grain has to. come down here and sent-  on to the east.

Demand for Flaxseed  Exceeds the Supply  Prices   Ruling   Very   High  The annual production of flaxseed  in North America is from 15,000,000  to 18,000,000 bushels, while the consumption is 'about 30,000,000 bushels.  The shortage of 12,000?000 to 15,000,-  .000 bushels is normally imported from  Argentina.  ���������The war, ,howeTef, has forced the  freight' rate from Buenos Ayres up to  70c a bushel, and has correspondingly  increased the price of every bushel on  hand or that can be raised, here. So  instead of selling at 70 or 80 cents  a bushel as iu 1912, flaxseed has som  this winter as. high as $2.26 and has  averaged around ,$2.  This makes it at least as porfllable  a crop to grow as wheat in wartime.  Director Grisdale of "the Dominion experimental farm, Ottawa, -says: ���������  "Prices for flax are -likely to be good  this coming fall, so where circumstances suggest flax, it will quite like-,  ly be. wisoi to grow"this crop."  Fortunately the"- last two weeks of  May is the best time to sow flax, and  it does well on new breaking, so that  after wheat seeding is finished a considerable acreage of flax can be got  in as an extra. It leaves the soil -in  as good shape for wheat as would a  summerfallow, and the farmer has a  profitable  found  crop  to  the good.'  ���������SB  *  The best  ,  yeast in  \ the world  i)\ Makes  ^\ perfect  nSl bread.

HE failure' of the arteries is one  of the tragedies of modern life.  Men in the very prime of life, and in  the midst of business activities, are  suddenly cut off. In many cases the  blow comes-before they realize their  condition.  jlnd what is the cause ? . Most  usually overeating and drinking, combined with too .little bodily exercise.  The blood becomes overloaded with  -poisons. The kidneys break down in-an  effort to filter the blood, degeneration  of the arteries takes place, an artery in  the brain hursts, a clot is formed and  paralysis results. Or it may be an  artery in the heart that gives way and  causes heart failure.  iAnd how is this condition to be  avoided ? By moderation in eating  and drinking, and by keeping the liver,  kidneys and bowels regular and active.  If you do not get sufficient exercise to  accomplish this, it is necessary to use  such treatment as Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pills. It is only by the action of  these organs that the blood can be  purified and the poisons removed from  the system.   In using  ise's  you are  not making  any  experiment,   for  they have no equal as a means of awaken-  , - ing the liver, kidneys a-ud bowels to  /7"\^ healthful   activity.      They   prevent  V  \ RUCk sei'i������us troubles as hardening of  /      \ the  arteries,  and  thereby   promoto  jst^ comfort and health and prolong life.

C. BREWSTER'S MANIFESTO  Charles Evans Hughes has been nominated  for president of the United States by^ the Republican'party. .Mr. Hughes is. a_- supreme  court judge,-a typical American; a; learned  man, and a good, honest citizen. It'was a fore-'  gone conclusion tliat Wilson would be renominated at St. Louis by the Democratic' party.  The chances of his re-election appear to be  very good. This is the first presidential'election year in the states for decades when there  has not been an industrial panic, or something  akin to a panic. Of course the European war  and the huge munition contracts which the  American factories have received are,to a large  extent, responsible for. this improved condition of affairs, but the Washington ..government will claim the credit for it, and the 'fact  that good times exist will probably influence  enough voters to re-elect President Wilson by  a sweeping majority. On the whole Mr. Wilson has made a very good ehief executive." Ho  has kept his nation out of the European war  without sacrificing too much national honor,  and his management of in.ernal affairs appears to have been satisfactory to a large majority of the citizens of his country.  The drowning of two children.in the North  Forth in this city within a couple of weeks  should be a warning to parents to keep their  young ones away from that stream. The river  is very treacherous at all times,but especially is  this case during-the spring freshets. Too much  precaution can not bertaken to keep the young  ones from playing on the banks, because once  they fall in they are swiftly carried down  stream by the strong current.  IT. C. Brewster, provincial Liberal leader,  issued the following manifesto to the electors  of British Columbia immediately after the  prorogation of the legislature:  To the Electors of British Columbia���������  As the keynote to the campaign in the Doming election, I want to state that my every  effort will be devoted to constructive work in  support of measures-having for their object  the advancement of the interests of the people  of British Columbia.  To enable this object to be effectively carried out it was necessary, in the first place, to  ascertain so far as possible the exact condi:  tion of provincial affairs. This entailed a large  of diiticult and unpleasant work at the last  sess on, but as a result thereof we'are in possession of many facts of vital'importance.  Some of these are as follows:  1. Contrary to law, the entire $25,000,000  share capital of the' Pacific Great Eastern  railway has been handed over to the promoters without cash payment.  2. Contrary to law, the entire proceeds  (.$18;000,000) of the securities guaranteed by  the government has been paid over to the Pacific Great Eastern Railway company, although the line is not nearly completed.,  3. Contrary to law, the promoters of the  Pacific Great Eastern Railway company have  been permitted to award the contract for construction to one of their members, without  competition, and at exorbitant prices, which  have caused a loss of several million dollars to  the province.  4. Contrary to law, first, class timber land  has been sold as second' class agricultural  land, causing  enormous loss to   the province  5. Contrary to law, public contracts have  been let to bidders who were not the lowest  tenderers; and sub-contracts and extras have  been so juggled as political patronage that  further enormous losses have been occasioned.  6. Contrary to law, commissions have been  paid without legislative authority to political  > upporters.  7. Contrary to law, members of the .legislative assembly have been given places of profit  under the government and have drawn large  sums of money.  .8. Contrary to law, the attorney-general  has continued to be a member of th������ legal firm  acting as solicitors for.the Pacific Great East-  urn railway, and other corporations dependent  on the government.  Every one of the above eight statements is  proved in entirety by official documents now  in the parliament building at Victoria. There  is not the slighest room left for argument, explanation or qualification. I have given you  a succinct statement of established facts.  Many other matters remained to be investigated when the session ended. They would  have been investigated had not the government, to prevent such investigation, formed a  committee to investigate alleged election irregularities, and carried it until the end of the  session, as a means  of obstructing  so. far as j    possible   our   investigations   into   provincial      Besides being read by all the intelligent peo-  finances. pie  of Grand  Forks, The  Sun goes to every  There was no need of taking up the time of ranch home in the Kettle and North Fork  parliament with such proceeding.

EXPERIMENTS  Teach Things of Value  Where one has never made the experiment of leaving off tea or coffee,  and drinking Postum, it is still easy to  learn something about it by reading  the  experiences  of  others.  Drinking Postum is a pleasant-way-  out of tea or coffee troubles. A man  writes:  "My wife was a victim of nervousness, weak stomach and loss of appetite for years; and although we resorted to numerous methods for relief,  one of which was a change from coffee to tea, it was all to no purpose."  (Both tea and coffee are injurious to  many persons, because they contain  yie subtle piosonous drug, caffeine).  "Wo knew coffee was causing the  trouble but Wuld not find anything to  take its place until we tried Postum.  With in'two weeks after she quit coffee  and began using Postum nlmost all f  her troubles had disappeared.as if by  magic. It was truly wonderful. Her  nervousness was gone, stomach  trouble relieved, appetito improved  and, above al!, a night's rest was complete   and   refreshing.  "This sounds like an exaggeration,  as it all happened so quickly. Each  day there was improvement, for the  Postum was undoubtedly strengthening her. Every particle of this good  work is due to drinking Postum In  place of coffeo." Name given by Canadian Postum-Co., Windsor, Ont.

" "A Tommy, recently returned home,  tells an extraordinary story of the ingenuity and - death of, a German  sniper," says the newspaper. "This  particular sniper was^encountefed on  Hill Seventy. When dawn broke the  soldier was chilled to the bone and  weakened with the loss of blood,' as  he'had been wounded the night before. Unable to move, he lay flat  on his back and tried to get some  sleep.    The    rest and the warmth of  raised his head. Another wounded  *. soldier started- to walk back to the  trenches.

Instead of mo'ving sideways  as    it    would  from  a  body passing  -   through  it, the grass itself appeared  to be coming forward.  "For a minute' the movement of the  grass stopped and then it began  again, this time coming toward the  wounded soldier.

Continuing its anecdotes of the  snipers, the newspaper quotes from a  long letter written by a soldier, in  which he explains-tho dangers presented to the men hy the snipers.  " "Along one stretch of front," he  Bays', "avc were much puzzled by the  angle at which the sniper's bullets  were coming .over. On the left was a  line-of leafless pollard willows, but .we  could see.,that there was nobody behind the trunks.  '���������Several of our officers tried'to find  a solution, but all to no purpose. At  last Captain X���������, who happene'd to  be familiar with the ways of old willows, took charge and ordered three  men to fire a few shots at each willow. The sniping ceased. Two of  the willows were hollow, and the German had crept inside the trees, and  were firing through cracks in the stem  with automatic revolvers. For two  days there was no more sniping, but  on the third day the fire was resumed as briskly as before, and with just  as deadly an effect. Fire was opened  again on the willows, but this time  there was no result.  "Captain X��������� was just as suspicious as ever, and he instructed the  nearest battery to make short work  of the willows. This was done, and  the third to go revealed the enemy's  cunning. Inside the willow we found  not only a German but a steel plate  which fitted outside him and inside  the willow, making a proof against  rifle bullets.  "While that was a clever trick it  was little better than the work done  with the old door. At one snot where  our trenches were not more'than 100  yards apart: an ��������� old door was lying.  The top glass panels of if wore broken, the wood beneath it were broken,  and over (lie woodwork a gaudy paper  had been pasted. Its only use was as  a test for our sights, which we got by  hitting the door knob or breaking off a  splinter of glftss. ��������� .  "One    day, however, we    were sur-  for we sent both the artist and his  picture flying back into the German  trenches, and the picture was the  more intact of the two. A well placed  bomb accounted for him.  "We" caught a beast'of a sniper in a'  curious" manner a few"months ago.  Our- regiment was stationed about  eight hundred, yards fronflhe German  trench and,, like all others,1 we stiffere'd  much-for want of water. Half a mile  in the rear ran a small stream and the,  men ' used to steal out at night for  water. These men were constantly being sniped.  "A*number of our;'men had been  killed'or wounded in this'manner and  it'.was. agreed that "the sniping "came  from somewhere behind our lines. A  close day's 'search revealed nothing.  The' CO. was getting savage and his  attitude robviously demanded that he  ..must .do^ something special for the  benefit'of the undiscovered sniper.  "Early one morning the command  came that'we were to make a great  circle and beat inward, not leaving a  bit of ground uncovered. 'Nothing  came of it���������that is to say, nothing  except a( shapeless old French farmer  whom "we found driving his riding'  plow 'for potatoes. When we ques-  tioend him lie flew into a rage because'wo were.tramping his beloved  ground and demanded that we clear  off at once as there was no 'espion'  around.

In making his  report to our chief tho subaltern remarked reflectively as he told of how  the farmer gnashed his teeth at 'us,  'Jolly fine teeth, and clean, too.*''  " 'What?'- snapped the irate CO.  'Mr. X���������, you take a couple of men  and go .to the farmer. Engage him  in conversation while your men pin  him from behind suddenly. I don't  want to lose men capturing a dangerous sniper with clean teeth.'  " "This was a sharp blow a~t the subaltern, . but it was precisely as our  chief suggested. The old farmer  fought like a tiger, and the three men'  were rolling over and over on the  ground 'before he could be safely tied,  lie was a powerful "young.maiC and  a search revealed a belt of cartridges  and two automatic pistols of German  make. Later in the day we found a  little dug-out in a ditch with a rifle  hidden away in a screen of bushwood.  There is only one end for men of this  kind, and he got it.  "Don't think that the -sniping is  confined to one side. We have some  men who are very clever, particularly the Canadian chaps. One such  is a full-blooded Indian in the 'Canadian infantry, who is a marvel with  his rifle. He has a telescopic sight  attached to his rifle and goes about  as he likes. He is a most silent man,  talking to few persons. He wanders about the trenches and waits for  a chance to pick off a German.  "One'German sniper recently was  giving a lot of trouble. Officers with  glasses tried in vain to locate .him.  The Indian came along, 'and without  saying a word to anyone fired at. a  big tree. Down came the 'sniper. The  Indian saw with his nakecLeye what  the officers with their glasses failed to  discover. He puts a little nick in  the stock of his rifle every time lie  is sure he has killed a German.

During  the- fiercest .period of the German  attack a Zouave machine gunner succeeded in saving his gun, which had  been buried-in the debris caused by  the explosion of a shell, and he was  carrying it with the assistance of a  comrade, when he saw the enemy  advancing quite close to him.  The two men, without losing their  presence of mind, established themselves in a shell hole. One of the  two Zouaves hoisted the machine-  gun on his shoulder and kept it at  the proper height, s'o that the other  could aim properly. The two men  then fired all their ammunition, and  after    having stopped the advancing  - The captured commander of the  Zeppelin LIS, Lieutenant' Briethaupt,  has just .given to the press what he  regards as the justification of tlie air  raids. They are designed, he says, to  gain a military advantage. They are  intended to destroy warships, armed  positions," and .factories; not to kill  old men, women, and cliildren. .That  they practically never achieve the  avowed object and' practically always  accomplish the disavowed aim' is a  fact that he rather too blilliely overlooks. It .is this deification in Germany's war methods of the "military  advantage;"^ the expense of idealism  and humanitarianism, which has  shocked the_ world. The moment a  military advantage is in question, be  it'never too ,shadowy or mythical,  every other consideration must go by  the-board.  The rest of the world is not ready  to accept Germany's supreme valuation of the "military advantage." It  does not believe that the entire system of ethics evolved by Christianity  should take a hasty departure the  moment the "military advantage" puts  in an appearance. Belgium was sacrificed because the hungry "military  advantage" demanded its life. The  Lusitauia was'sunk because some  imagination was able to see the "mili-f statement  tary advantage" in tho 'act. Non-  combatants are being regularly murdered in Great Britain because a  microscopic "military advantage" has  been discovered -in the practice.  Civilized nations in the'past have ordinarily refused to sacrifice the more  sacred principles of humanity in exchange for an infinitesimal "military  advantage.'' .        .  ���������  It is said that Germany cannot understand why she has alienated the  sympathy of the'largest part-of the  neutral world, but the explanation is  certainly not very difficult. -A prejudice in favor of Christian ethics seems  ineradicably rooted in the modern  civilized mind. The substitution of  the god "military advantage" for this  system of ethics .is not one which can  easily be effected. The average American, for example, flatly refuses to  regard a fanciful military advantage  as sufficient cause for murdering an  innocent babe. Murder with a phantom explanation he regards none"the  less as murder.  It has already been pointed out  that the military advantages arising  from the Zeppelin raids are largely  negligible. Naturally this fact but intensifies their awful inhumanity. So  long as they are continued, Germany  is carrying on a propaganda against  herself in the neutral world which far  outweighs the propanganda she has  organized on her own behalf. The  adjective   "militaristic"   is one which  An "Address to the People of tho  Allied Nations," bearing the signatures of five hundred prominent Amer-'  icaiis in all walks of life and expressing sympathy with the allies in tho  present war and hope of their victory,  has been  made'public.

The behavior  of the .population in Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, Liege and Mons is admirable. German newspapers are  compelled to admit that von Hissing  has failed to weaken their patriotism, and that neither flattery, threats,  promises nor persecution has succeeded in disarming or diminishing in any  degree the hostility of our proud people.  Look how the most prominent leaders of the Flemish movement protested against von Bissing's. efforts to instill the Flemish spirit in Ghent University, although they themselves had  long worked for this reform  "We  shall  from our country's enemy," they said  bravely, proudly.
