C, FRIDAY, JUNE 25, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAR  ADDRESS ON THE  CRISIS  :^T^^^fi^-'i������^?^  A large audience gathered jo the  ' - operar house on Monday '"evening to  hear the address of Rev. A. E.  Cooke, .secretary of the Ministerial  Union of the Lower Mainland, on  the "Crisis in B. C." A hurried attempt was.made' toward nightfall to  divert the crowd by putting' on a  cheap show that.'evening, but this  move met with- failure. -    -  .-    Rev. M. D: McKee took the chair  ..for^the speaker, who was   also   supported on.the platform   by  Rev. C.  W. ICinsi." Mr.   Me'Kee,   in   introducing the speaker, emphasized the  fact it  .was  not a political meeting.  -The-ministers were solely,  solicitous  of learning the  fact's regarding the  performance of public affairs .'in this  province, and be  hope thosed present had come with  open "minds.for  truth, no matter from what point of  the compass it came.  Mr. Cooke, at the commencement  of his speech, said that the first  point he "wished" made clear was  that the Ministerial Union was not  in any sense a  political   affair, snSr  ��������� was * it a political   meeting. - From  this viewpoint the speaker  went 'on  .to define exactly., what  .the -.Ministerial Union'was.    Its objects  were  -to  correct   wrongs  in   government  that   were   robbing   the   people  of  what belonged to them.    -This task,  "Mr.'Cooke   said," was the   duty   of  every   minister   of true  principles.  He was not attacking the  Conservative party at all, though  it was true  that  they   were  attacking a   few of  -the men that of party. The politics  of the Ministerial Union to which he  belonged were purely the  politics of  the kingdom of God and their  platform   for   their   campaign was the  _ platform of righteousness. The house  of the people was being rifled of   its  treasures, of its merchandise and its  products, and   it  was therefore the  duty of the'ministers of the  associa-  '' tion and of the ministers of God   to  expose those who were rifling it.  Mr.  Cooke  paid   considerable at-  ��������� tention- to an item   which  appeared  - in last week's issue of the local apologist of the. McBride^machine.;. The  writer had made -the  assertion  that  the pamphleb,;''The Crisis in B.C.,''  had been repudiated by   the official  paper of Methodist church  in   British   Columbia.     Mr.   Cooke     denounced ��������� this   as a   misstatement.  The  Methodist  paper in   question  had attempted to secure recognition  as the official organ of  the  church,  but had failed. As evidence that the  Methodist   church   was   in hearty  accord with the work of  the  Minis-  trrial Union, he cited the   fact that  Rev. R. F. Stillman,   head of   that  denomination   in   the   West,    had  signed   the    -'Foreword"   of   "The  Crisis in B. C,"  Concluding this explanatory preamble, Mr. Cooke started of in earnest on his,.work oi the evening���������an  impassioned rendering of the pamphlet, "The Crisis in B. C."  The poor animal has been milked nearly dry.  ,.            _ M                       .   ���������      i u     i i l    j         ���������        ,.���������   ,         , - ,        t!me> while it would strengthen   the  e Ocean    Falls  company, infl-ited should be deserving ot the   absolute    ,       ,                      ,                ,  .    ,.     .         r       ' ,          ,          already   overtaxed   demands   upon  a   capitalization   of   SO,000,000, contempt   or every man throughout  .,     ,-v      , _        ��������� L,     ,-,  . n                                           .       . xi              ���������            ^.                     .            the Daughters of the  E  knowledge which he had felt  it  his of pulp  leases   to   thirty years and  number of original letters and certi-  duty to make public. . {the   manner   in   which -holders of, fied abstracts fr^m government  rec-  While speaking on the subject of these licenses, had been aided in, ords.

After a number of platform  speakers and others  had   expressed  themselves on the wisdom of under-,  taking more definite  work   in   support- of   this  worthy cause of relief  for'our men at the front   and   their  dependents at home, a   branch   society or auxiliary was organized with  a large, influential   and  -representative body of men and women on the  executive   staff; and, with, the conveniently located depot in the opera  house offered by the Townsite company  through    F.

Grand   Forks   people   will   have  a  wider opportunity than heretofore .to  contribute  their  share  of   relief to  the sufferers in   the   present   world  conflict.    More   than   one   of    the.  speakers   warmly   commended  the '  work     of     the     local     Daughters  of   the   Empire since the   opening  of hostilities, but it wus pointed out  that the Red Cross society work was  international'and would thus meet a  wider field of practical sympathy and  co operation,    so   essential' at   this  affairs.    "It had been    only  that the examination  of   discovery,  held by the lawyers Lucas &   Lucas  (sons   of  Alexander Lucas) in connection with the prosecution against  the   Ministerial   Union, he and the  other parlies examined had not volunteered   any   information,   which  had formed a good excuse for Messrs  Luca3   &   Lucas to  state that they,  the  members   of    the    Ministerial  Union, did hot have any  moral   responsibility for what  had appeared  in   the "Crisis," and   to   shift   the  bulk   of   the   charges against Mr.  no work to do in this, the   richest of  countries.

I appeal in   the   name  of   justice, righteousness, the  kingdom of God and in the name of God,  and demand that inquiry   be made,  that the birthright of our people   be  restored, that the facts   be  set forth  and that justice be meted out without fear or favor to  every   offender,  that  the reproach   of corruption be  for ever lifted from the fair name of  this province, and to you, people of  British Columbia, I. look for help to  which Mr. Cotsworth had held with  acres of timber had also been  alien-  the government as ehairman of the , ated from the peoples, no  less  than  mpire. Th������Y  local Chapter was givt.i an official  representation of two members on  the executive of the Red Cross work-  in Grand Forks.  All   the city   clergymen   were on  the platform and assured the   audience of their hearty and sympathetic,  co operation "in   this   commendable  work.

Mr.    Holland    also  spoke, pointing out some of the outstanding features of Red Cross work  as done by the home  auxiliaries  in  furnishing   material  supplies  from  their sewing rooms relief funds, and  other patriotic work under   the   direction of the organization.    Others  in the audience   spoke on the practical   working of   such an organization in ihe relief of suffering  both  on the Continent and   at  the  home  bases, after which nominations wen;  called for and the following   officers  and executive committee were unani -  motisly appointed.

A GOOD CHEW IN A CLEAN WRAPPER.  10 CENTS PER PLUG  /  W. N. U. 1052  The Manufacture  of Shrapnel Shells  Weapon Invented in 1784 Has Been  Wonderfully Improved  SJmtjHicl possesses, 'greater mau-  kiliing power than aijy other kind of  Ammunition, used in modern field-artillery, and that is why more than 1,-  ' 000,000 a month are being used by the  European armies now in the field.  Thousands of shops and factories in  this country and in JOuorpe are working night and day to supply this demand. A superficial examination of a  shrapnel shell discloses little to indicate its destructive power���������it is simply a small steel shell attached to the  end of a brass cage, but when proper-  - ly adjusted and fired from a modern'  Held guu this steel shell becomes a  veritable demon of destruction. Within the brief period of 4% seconds it  has travelled over one mile'and 1&%  seconds later it is' nearly 2% miles  distant from the gun. At any- time  during this rapid flight it can be made  to explode with marvelous precision  and  deadly effectiveness.  Each shell has a time fuse that is  made with the accuracy of a watch.  This fuse is graduated in seconds and  is set to explode at a given range as  determined by the panoramic sight or  other form of range finder. As soon  as the gun is fired, the fuse is ignited automatically and when the explosion occurs in the base of the  shell itself, tlie forward 'end is blown  out and a shower of lead bullets hurled forward in conelike formation, the  shell acting as -ah aerial gun. The  velocity of -these bullets exceeds the  explosion by from 250 to 300 feet per  second, and they cover a zone about  i>0 yards wide and 250 yards long.  The first shrapnel shell (invented  in 1784 by Lieutenant Shrapnel) was  'merely "a cast iroi. ball: filled with  bulle.ts and powder, which was exploded by a crude fuse screwed into  the shell. This type was unsatisfactory because bullets flew in all directions when the shell exploded; later  this defect was partially overcome by  inserting .a sheet-iron diaphragm,  which separated the bullets from the  bursting charge. Modern shrapnel is  >,-similar, in p'rin-ciple to its early predecessor, but is a marvel of mechanical  ingenuity.  The shrapnel shells used by different governments at the present time  operate   on   the    same principle, but  differ somewhat as to'Size and in the  arrangement of the tuse.    A'complete  shrapnel comprises a brass case containing a heavy charge of smokeless  powder, for. propelling the projectile,  a hollow steel shell, containing a large  number of lead bullets and a bursting  charge, and the combination time and  percussion    fuse    which   forms    the  point of the shell.    The sudden motion of the shell at (he time of firing  causes a small plunger in the end of  the fuse to fly back and strike a cap  which ignites the fuse.    This fuse is  composed of a slow-burning composir  tion  that  is   pressed    into    annular  grooves.    One of these.grooves is.in  a. stationary ring and the other in a  graduated movable~ring.    By turning  the. graduated ring, the length of this  fuse is varied so that the shell may  be   exploded   at  any  time   within   a  period of about 21 seconds..   During  this brief period a three-inch.American shrapnel .will travel  6.500 yards,  or nearly.-1% miles.  The French fuse differs from the  movable ring type-used in other  countries in this respect. The slow  burning composition is contained in  a tube, wound spirally around the fuse  head. The fuse is set by piercing a  hole through this spiral tube, so that  ^connection is made with the interior  of the fuse body. When the gun is  fired and the primer or cap in the  fuse head is exploded, a flame passes  out through the pierced hole and ignites the "rope" powder fuse. The  effective length of the fuse depends  upon the position of the pierced hole,  which is mads by a special machine  attached to the gun, the hole being  located with reference to suitable  graduations. Most fus*es are so arranged that the shell will be exploded by concussion if- it should strike  .before the ring of powder burns  around to the exploding charge. This  is effected by a secondary plunger in  the fuse head which flies forward  when the shell strikes and fires the  bursting   charge   instantaneously..  Shells of the three-inch size contain  from 210 to 360 lead bullets about half  an inch in diameter, which are embedded in a resinous mixture. This  matrix, as it is called, serves two purposes. It holds the bullets in position, and also acts as a tracer to indicate, by a cloud of smoke the point  ar. which the shell explodes- This  smoke cloud is important, especially  at long ranges, and when adverse atmospheric condition's exist.  The development of a shrapnel  shell represents a vast amount of experimenting and study, but the shell  itself is not. comparable with the wonderful processes and tools which are  employed in its manufacture. The interesting phases of, shrapnel manufacture are the formation of the brass  case, the forging of the steel shell  and the finishing of the various shell  and fuse parts "to the degree of accuracy required. Tlie production of  a brass case 11% inches long, ,', 3-5  Inches in diameter (the British 18-  pounder)  requires 17 different opera  tions. It is formed from a fiat circular blank 6'/4 inches in diameter and  % of an inch thick. This is first  drawn into'a shallow cup shape, and  is then gradually elongated by being  rorced through steel dies which are  progressing smaller in diameter.  These drawing operations are so controlled that only' the sides of the case  are' made thinner, the bottom retaining practically the original������������thickncss  to insure the necessary strength.' Af-~  ter a smooth seamless case is draw .  by the method.referred to, the bottom  is turned tme and a central hole bored' out and threaded to receive the  primer or cap for "exploding the propelling charge. As these brass cases  as well as those for other kinds of  ammunition, contain about 65 per  cent, of copper, the importance of this  metal in modern warfare is,apparent-  This explains why the cost of copper  has increased- over 200 per cent, in  Germany since (he beginning of the  war.  United States, but have no idea of  all the detailed, annoyance which from  that and similar cause's is thrown  upon every embassy, legation and  consular  office  abroad.  A Western Poet  R. J. C.  Neutvals Suffer by the War  Smuggling a  Big   Business as Carried  on in Europe  The Germans are generally disliked  in all the- Scandinavian countries, in  Holland and Italy, but the enormous  prices they are wilims to pay for the  articles they want appeal to the cupidity of the people of the neutral countries, so that smuggling is now carried out oma big scale.  '  A correspondent who has travelled  widely since the outbreak of the war  writes entertainingly of the hardships  and burdens, the profits and the wfies  of the" smugglers in neutral-countries  who have been getting goods across  the  frontiers  into'Germany.  Some of these^neutrals are growing  fat .on the profits of their commerce  with the belligerents, and at the  hotels in frontier towns German and  British agents, .who have no use for  the neutral except to buy goods from  them, eye each other with suspicion-  "Any grain which can be got over  the Italian -frontier is worth nearly  three times as much as the Italian  farmer has ever dreamed of getting  for his crop." The temptations of  smuggling, therefore, are large, and  neutral governments are confronted  with greater difficulties than we are  inclined to give them credit for in enforcing regulations against the exportation of particular goods.  One may bear in Holland stories  from husiness men of what sound like  fabulous prices offered for foodstuffs,  metals,' petrol and rubber delivered  across the frontier; and the same is  true in Italy.  Women have been caught crossing  the Dutch frontier with patrol in  specially .design*,.:, receptacles hidden  beneath their petticoats. The facts  were recently published of the discovery and confiscation of a quantity  of bacon, which was packed inside  fresh carcasses which had been cut  opsn and joined together again. Contraband of divers kinds has been  found hidden under layers of mangel-  wurzels in a railway truck. .'._-.'  "All neutral countries are suffering  in varying degrees'from the war if  only by the interruption of trade and  the higher prices of foodstuffs. In*  Sweden there is real hardship in some  parts of the country from the inability  to export timber. -On Holland the  burden is particularly heavy, with the  cost of maintaining the mobilized  army and'the expense of the Belgian  refugees.  "In all the countries the task of  government now is ticklish work.  Human nature is the same everywhere, and in one country as much as  in' another, peoples are growing restive under their burdens and critical  of the authorities.  A conspicuous -international incident, as was the case of the Dacia  or Whilelmina or the violation of the  air neutrality of. Holland by the German airships, attracts public attention, but we have little conception of  the. constant strain of a thousand  similar if less notorious yembarra-s-  ments which is upon every neutral  government.

A few weeks ago,,. the Interstate  Commerce Commission of the United  States handed out a decision granting  to the railway companies in certain  ���������sections'the righ't to increase their  rates. A few years ago- any such de:  cisio'n would have aroused' a storm of  protest. The recent decision was accepted, generally, in' such good- part  as to suggest ..that the public is ..being educated in economic truth's.  President YVoodrow Wilson, who is !  one of the leading economists of his  day, sometimes hancis out' hints-lo  the public .along with his messages.  Oneof these he handed out'when he  first-mentioned the subject, of freight  rate-increases. He said .the prosperity of the country is. boilnd up' with  the prosperity' of the railways. He  suggested that the public, in hurting  (he railways'were hurting themselves  Justice for the, railways was justice  for the ^public also.' ���������*  - Big industries, like some big men,  are sometimes not in popular favor  with   the  ge'neral   public, ��������� They 'are  Better Times in Sight.

For a  nuu.her of years  Mr.  Stead  was  editor  of  the  Cartwright  Review and the Crystal City Courier,  and is at present engaged on the staff,  of the general publicity agent of the  Canadian Pacific Railway Department  of Natural Resources, Calgary. An interesting sketch of his life,  together  with a resume of his literary productions, appeare-! in a recent number of  the \Vestern Standard, from which the  following is an excerpt:  "In the year 1903 began the literary  history of this poet {nd author, when  a short poem known as the "Empire  Builders" was, published in the Canadian Magazine. This beautiful poem  dealt with such aspects of Canadian  development that it was.widely reprinted. Amongst others the'Literary  Digest,- of New York, gave it instantaneous recognition. Encouraged by  this, young Stead gave'himself to the j  compilation    of    a  volume   of verse i expected to give evidence of generos  ity to all and sundry; otherwise, they  are roundly condemned. They, lend  themselves to the critical uses of cartooning. Such has been the experience of the United States. But lh3  United States is'lea*ning^.what an expensive habit railway-baiting is, and  is quick to profit by the lesson. In  the last election, the remarkable  gains of the Republican party, once  shot and apparently killed because it  was believed to - be a friend of the  "big interests," has been interpreted  by all disinterested political experts  in the United States as sufficient evidence that the ' nagging of business  just because'nagging was popular and  not because .business was guilty of  sin, had begun to pall on the American public-  When  an  application   by   the  Canadian railway companies for permission to increase their freight rates is  before the board of railway commissioners, it is timely to point out that  the  great,.danger, both   the   railways  the public have to fear is popu-  prejudice   against    the railways,  such prejudice take form, and it  be extremely hard- for justice to  be ddne, with th? result that the ra.il-  ways will suffer and the country'.with  them.---Montreal  Evening News.  vhich was published, in book form in  1908, under the title "Empire Builders." The years of intimate experience with, the prairies, as expressed  in these verses, made them profound  in their appeal, made them fine and  true in their feeling and observation.  They were "born, not made," and they  carry intense conviction .with them.  The Montreal Standard ''was ��������� right  when it said: 'lines like these will live  and explain to those who never saw  the' country what life on the prairie  really meant. Such is the power of  divine poetry.' This book"was a considerable success; it passed through  four editions and was. favorably reviewed by over two hundred representative publications. The principal  elements which have won distinction  for it are, an ea - style, a strong patriotic appeal, a strong portrayal of  (hose subtle'inflneiues that peculiarly  belong to pioneer prairie life. This  was followed by "Praiiie Born" in  191.1, and also a collection of "his  poems under the title "Songs of the  Prairie."

The prolonged sojourn in the'  mud of trenches, the battering of invisible hosts by invisible hosts, give  opportunities enough _for .heroism, but  not heroism of the melodramatic kind  most congenial to royal salons," which  prefer war with the nimbus* of flashing steel, waving plumes and carefully-valeted soldiery. Quite naturally,  our more prosaic .age, better' endowed  mechanically, is wondering, whether  there.be not in the cinematograph a  better mode of recording ths war. One  need not,enter on the technical question whether . films can be devised  which will live for posterity. From  another side there arises the difficulty that the very lack of visibility and  tlie dramatic in modern warfare,  which.makes it stubborn material for  the painter, makes it material hardly  less stuoborn for the cinematograph..  ���������London NTews and Leader,  and  lav  Let  will  Dreadnought Cruisers  It is curious to remember,'after the  first evolution of the"^ Dreadnought  cruiser, "what a wave of scepticism  set in regarding this type of vessel.

Whether correct or-not,  that is a very common opinion among  those farmers. Mr. .Cahill, however,  doe's not, like some of them, resent efforts'on the part of government to  spread agricultural knowledge'. On  the contrary, he says'either the'I'ecl-  ,'eral or the provincial - government  should have a model farm every thirty miles, run by trained-men 'from the  agricultural college's- '"He takes it for  granted that this could-be dons without vco'st to the country.

'Even if the usual leaks and  incompetencies of government'service  such as. political appointments and  political purchasing at the instance of  local 'political' bosses, were entirely  eliminated, it might be wise to dp  some thing's on a model farm that  would not pay. experiments and demonstrations take more in labor than  they return in-cash.

It has heen  found in practice that- prisoners so.  treated do not 'need 'much watching.  There must be enough of truth, in Mr.  Cahill's calculation to command respect", for so sensible a proposal. The  farms would need at any rate to show  profitable culture in a way to convince  onlookers. It is said that, wherever  there,is a model farm in the States  its'influence is visible on agricultural  productiveness and prosperity for a  day's journey round it.

Important Part Played by Trawlers in  Naval Warfare  -Steam trawlers play an important  but little-known part in the present  war.       ��������� ~<  \  Thousands of these fishing vessels  are now engaged, in mine sweeping,'  in protecting battleships from hostile  submarines, and in military operations against the Germans in the .shallows of the Belgian coast. After the  German raid ' on Scarborough and  other English east coast towns in December, steam .trawlers, picked .up no  less than 3 ,G00 floating mines in a  week. The -work- is dangerous, for,  many of the German mines, with their  bristling contact points, explode in the  nets.  Nothing affords such protection  against submarines as a cordon of  -trawlers round a fleet. The submarines must come clcse to be effective,  and on, rising to the surface to use  the periscope, they are easily detected by the trawlers. There is also the  chance that they will get in a shot  at what the navy calls 'tin whales.' ���������  A large fleet of trawlers will soon  take part in the Belgian coast operations, and some ��������� already are there.  They carry oho gun forward, another aft,, and-two abeam.  The' weapons "are quick-firers of  comparatively small calibre, but the  boats, sailing- in close under the lee  of the sand dunes and increasing the  general volume of fire, help to prevent enemy guns from taking a- base  along the shore, and making a direct  target of the big monitors and cruisers.

Here's an instance:  "Four years ago I was taken with  severe gastritis and nothing would  stay on my stomach, so that I was on  the verge of starvation.  "I heard of a doctor who had a summer cottage near me���������-a specialist���������-  and, as a last hope, sent for him.

Possibilities of the Canadian West as  a  Grain   Producer  Having unlimited faith in our province and the sister provinces of this  great norenwest, we are rather too  ready lo proclaim that we are the  granary of the empire- As a matter  of fact we are only a spout, though, if  we understood our Irue interests we  may become a vei y much larger one.  Great Britain imports about 230,000,-  000 bushels of wheat each year, i:i  addition lo the 70,000,000 bushels she  raises. Of this quantity Canada contributes a little less than does the  Argentine, and a little more than cither Australasia or the United States,  about two-thirds as much .as Russia  and not.much more than half what India ships to the British consumer.  Yet there are hundreds of thousands  of good acres of, land as yet untitled  in the northwest, and there is no reason why they should not supply, a  very much greater percentage of England's wheat supply than now during  the present' year, and probably, for  several successive years Canadian  farmers are sure of good, perhaps  high prices, for all the- grain they  have to sell.  These facts are evidently recognized by many young men, as the number of homesteads taken up this season is largely in excess of those taken  up last year.

I surprised doctors and  neighbors for they all know what a  wreck I was.  "Nowl am healthy, happy and hearty,  and owe it all to Lydia E. Pinkham'a  remedies. You may publish this letter  if you like. I think if more women  used your remedies they would have  better health."���������������������������Mrs. J. T. Cook, Lot  No. 7, Cape Wolfe, P.E.I., Canada.  Because your case is a difficul t one, and  doctors having done you no good, do not  continue to suffer without giving Lydia  E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a  trial. It surely has remedied- many  cases of female ills, such as inflammation, ulceration, displacements, tumor3,  irregularities, periodic pains, backache,  and it may be exactly what you need.  The Pinkham record is a proud and  peerless one. It is  a record of constant  victory over the ob-  Btinateillsof women  ���������Ills that deal out  despair. It is an established fact that  Lydia E. Pinkham's  VegetablcCompound  has restored health  to thousands of such suffering women.  Why don't you try it if you no������<l such a  medicine ?

The tlection Plot  Sir Robert Borden stigmatizes Mr.  Lemietix's statement that the gov  erno general vetoed the-proposal to  hold an election Inst fall.as "an unqualified falsehood." The. governor  general did'not technically veto the  conspiracy which Mr. Rogers promoted last September and October,  but it'is known that he strongly disapproved of it, and his disapproval,  supported, by protests- from the  country,' killed the plot. No one  brought up in the school which his  royal highness has'adorned so, long  coil Id (to anything else.  Mr. Lemieux said, also, that the  recent attempt to exploit the war for  political purposes had been vetoed  by the news from Flanders. " VV'eob  serve that Sir Robert did not brand  that 'statement as an "unqualified  .falsehood." He could not, for the  simple reason that it was'true Mr.  Rogers actually had opened a cam  paigti with a speech in Montreal,the  partj\press announced the 'probable  date ol the election and ballots were  shipped to London for campaign  purposes'in the trenches if conditions permitted such a disgusting  proceeding. Then came the * news  of the battle of Ypres and the storm  of protests which reached Ottawa put  a quietus'on the nefarious scheme  for the time being.  But Sir Robert. Borden has not  given an assurance-that he will not  divide Canada into two hostile political camps while the critical stages  of the war are in progress. Presses  in Toronto have been grinding out  unsightly posters stating that "Borden Bicksj Britain," but eliminating all reference to bandages, defective binoculars and rotten boots.  MrXLemieux would have been more  correct in saying that the disapproval of the governor general,  bickfd by protests from the decent  people of buth political parties in  Canada, had acted as aweto upon  the machinations of Mr. Rogers last  fall.' Let Sir Robert Borden stop  his political publicity bureeau and  recall the orders to the printers for  those glaring posters which are intended ��������� to deface, every available  billboard from the Atlantic to the  Pacific and political demonstrations  in Canada will cease. Mr. Asquith,  whose term has' expired, not only  gave the assurance that .there would:  be no election while the war was in  progress, but has taken distinguished  statesmen from the opposition into  his cabinet.

More Production is Needed  * - What we  should  direct  our attention to in this country now is the increased  production  rather     than  increased acreage. The farmers ot Germany have long since learned this lesson.    In twenty years  they have  increased the average yield of the five  leading crops, viz., wheat,  rye,  oats,  barley, and-potatoes 61.0 per cent. The  average yield or wheat of 21-2 bushels  from  1886  to  1895  wds increased   to  31.8 bushels for the years 1906 to 1910.  The production  of potatoes    for  the  same period was increased from 130  to  210.1  bushels.    The yield  of the  same crops in the United States i'or  the  same  period  increased   19.8  per  cetn., wheat 12.7 bushels to 14.7, potatoes 73.2 bushels to 96.9-   The average  production  of 210.1  bushels  of potatoes  by the German  farmers at 55.3  cents, the average price to-the Iowa  farmer,     making    an    acre  yield  of  $116.18 should look good to any Iowa  farmer.���������Bulletin, -Nile's and Waiters  Saving Bank, Anamosa, Iowa.

Have   the   editors- spend   a "week  in  conference   with   the  professors  and  note the possibilities  that lie before  the  farmers.

Tlie soil is turned  over year after year, and the pan or  hard surface of the subsoil remains  untouched; consequently it is submitted neither to the air nor sunlight, both of which so'materially assist in its decomposition, and in preparing it for the roots of -plants.  There are few soils that are not benefitted by breaking the pan and stirrirg  ���������in a word, deep cultivation, care being taken, however, not to bring up  the subsoil to the surface- On farm  land (excepting, of course, those isolated spots where you have a-deep,  well drained 'fertile land of a sandy  nature stocked with humus) it is_ a  good plan to turn .up with each ploughing, say, half an inch to an inch of  new soil each year until the land is  sown down in pasture again. The  greatest agents we have to help in  breaking down .a stiff furrow are time,  heat, and cold���������atmospheric conditions: then use the old style of grubber and heavy tine harrows, using the  modern spring-tooHi cultivator if  there are not enough horses on the  farm to pull the genuine article.

Within the ' comparatively  brief 'period that has elapsed since  / ��������� the outbreak of the war tliio .furious  rage against Fngland has communicated itself to every section of tlie  populace. It' Is not an., artificial  growtli,   but-  purely spontaneous.   It  ,   .Is  .absolutely .sincere.   It. is almost  wholly unanimous.   The    foamings of  . "an  elderly"   pantaloon  like Professor  .   .    Kuno Meyer* are as characteristic   of  the Anglo phobia of the German in-  'tellectuals ,as llerr . Ernst Dissauer's  . unconsciously " humorous    Hymn   of  Hate  is  of    the  feelinc  in   literary  circles.  .The seeds of this hatred���������"unser  Ilass gegen England," - as. tlie newspapers exultingly call it ���������were not  c planted by_ the German' government.  Knowing that these seeds lay dormant, or rather, to be accurate, had  "already grown to quite a respectable  plant, "it has done and is doing everything within its power to tend .and-  nurture tills rabid enmity which has  " , now become the obsession "of sixty-  five million souls. The. German government has not been very successful  hitherto in its congenial labor of defamation and slander of'. the allies.  . Let us be frank, therefore, and admit  that its endeavors to fan the flame of  hatred against the British in Germany  have' been ' crowned with complete  success. ���������'  It would be a mistake to suppose  ��������� "' that this hatred of England in Germany is of recent growth." It" does  not, it is true, date back to the old  Germany, though in the days of Bismarck Engl&nd was _ unpopular in  Germany, much as she was in most  other continental 'countries. It is,  however, a feature of' the German  - Volkspsy'chologie which has, been developing, during the past twenty years,  A state, of ^eace'n'aturally checks the  frank utterances, of' a nation, * and  this state of mind of the Gerhian peo-  . pie���������which the present w..r has fanned" to a furious flame-rhas during the  past two decades been one of intense  and consuming-envy    rather Mian of  ���������    pure hatred.    This'  envy of Kngland  .   Is as much a symptom in the- development of modern Germany    as other  marked features���������sue': as the growt.i  of. licentiousness as dento'-'-.raiisd by  -    the     unhindered    spread   of    "niglit  life" and all it stands for.  Hatred of Englau '. in Germany is  not a new thing. I first"-wont to Germany as a schoolboy during tlie Boer  War. The deepest iriipression I have  retained of my first contact with Ger-  "man lads of my .own age���������boys at the  grammar school in the little provincial town where I was learning German���������was their gross offensiveness  to me���������tlie stranger and guest of one  of their own comrades, as the representative of the British race.  , Those were the days when the acquisition  of    Kiao-Chau .by  the  Ger  mans after the Boxer expedition  seemed to open up to young Germany  a fair Held of development in the Far  East. 1 remember going with a party of school boys to a lecture delivered- under the auspices of the German  Navy League <on Germany's future "n  Chinas Thai, lecture mainly consisted of a violent tirade against England. I remember listening in silent  fury to (he speaker's clumsy gibe* at  England's policy of grab,, and lo the  oreary clap-trap which used to be the  stock-in-trade of the boulevard Chauvinists of former years. ' ���������  The Boxer ' expedition which threAV  open the wide world to a large number o'f' young Germans undoubtedly  played a role in fanning this feeling,  against England, which has.always  had its roots in jealousy���������Neid���������that  cardinal failing of the German race.  The young- German soldiers and sailors���������fresh from the rather grey surroundings of -German-university or  commercial "school���������were 'electrified  to find themselves sent forth as the  Kultur-bearers of imperial Germany.  But as their enthusiasm waxed at the  prospects opened to them by the new  world which unrolled itself before  them, their.envy increased agr.inst the.  mighty power whose well ordered  rind contented colonies and settlements met them from sea to sea, from  Hamburg to Hong-Kong. -  .The- .envy of Great Britain in Germany is the'envy of the young German. It is the bitter feeling with  which the poor cleric regards the rich  son of his employer, or the small  tradesman the capitalist. Ambitious  young Germans of good family, coining" to London in the rather straitened  eircumfJance*- in which so many wellborn German families live, have often  displayed to- me by their manner,  rather than their words, their "irritation at the more affluent surroundings of the young men with whom  they come into contact in England.  Envy of British prosperity is very  marked in press' and public in Germany.- The feeling may not always  find concrete expression, but it is  there nevertheless.  The young German's wrathful impotence to win for himself a position  in the'world." commensurate with that'  of modern' Germany has brought  forth a whole cro: of imperial-minded German novels. In these boolo,  many of which have enormous sales,  you will find very clearly marked the  devouring ambition, the bitter envy,  and the painful self-consciousness  which are the-leading traits of young  finalities which have combined to  make the German the most disliked  nation of the world.  I have only indicated the resources  from which Germai.y's hatred of  England springs. It goes without  saying that the determining factor of  Its'-present degree of ferociousness is  duo to the realization of the fact that  Germany's game to master the world  has been foiled, and that England is  the name of the spoil-sport.���������London  Daily Mail.  Everyone Should Help  The Farmers and How TheyfCan Help  the   Red  Cross  Society "-.  We publish elsewhere "in this issue  an appeal on behalf ot" the Red Cross  Society, by Dr. James \V. Robertson.  Dr.' Robertson is still best known to  the farmers of Canada as Professor  Robertson. He began/his official public.'service at the Ontario; Agriculture  College nearly thirty years ago: Twenty-five years ago he went to Ottawa as  dairy commissioner for the Dominion.  The dairying service of the: depart-,  ment of agriculture.'soOn became,  known and triisied throughout' Canada. From Prince Edward Island to  Alberta, farmers profited by the illustration dairy stations and. the travelling instructors. The output of cheese  and butter in Canada added to the  reputation of its rural workers.  Other public services of continuing  and growing value were inaugurated,  while Professor Robertson was commissioner of agriculture. Among them'  were the live stock branch, the cold  storage service, the seed grain competitions, trial shipments of fruit to  tlie United Kingdom, and extensions  of markets.  Besides there were the manual  training movement, the school gardens, household science, and the consolidated rural schools.  In more recent years, Dr. Robertson was chairman of the royal commission on industrial training and  technical education. Farmers in all  provinces are familiar with the survey  of farms by the commission of conservation and tlie illustration farms  \of its coinmittea on lands, of which  lie is chairman.   '  Vin these and man other ways, Dr-  Robertson has given the farmers of  Canada the bast that was in him. He  says he is their debtor, for many opportunities/for much kindness and for  warm.appreciations. But they, are his  debtors too. And he now reminds  them, of that for the first time in order  (o establish his right '-nd privilege  to appeal to them for. this, worthy  cause.

Another German Monopoly  Glass Eyes Are Becoming Scarce, and  the War is Responsible  Aniline dyes, are not the only th'ings  in which Germany has established a  monopoly. According-to the Glasgow.  Herald ninety-five per cent.'of the  glass eyes sold in ���������'his country-ha'-j  'hitherto been made in Germany, and  America is in still greater danger of  optical starvation, for she has depended on Germany altogether. It seenu  that there are a quarter of a million  people Tn"-:.th'e United States who get  their eyes from Germany. The uninitiated might, suppose that a glass  eye, even if made in Germany, would  be an enduring possession like a gold  tooth or a wooden leg, and that, ther^;-  ������fore, a temporary stoppage of supplies  would not cause widespread inconvenience. -But this is not the case. Th  life of a glass eye, says our authority,  is only-nine months. We are not tokl  in what respect.it deteriorates, cr  whether after the lapse of that time it  is absolutely useless or merely shabby. -Perhaps the colors are not fast.  It would certainly be disastrous if  Sadie's right eye (made by her American forbears) retained its rich, deep,  lustrous violet hue, while her left eyo  (made in Germany and originally an  excellent match) faded to light azure  or turned green. The British article is  much dearer than the German, it  seems, but we presume that the quality will be proportionately better. An  effort should certainly be made to capture tlie American trade, if only to ensure that our cousins have a correct  British outlook.  Heligoland Fortress Great Expense to  Germany -   ���������  Ms ny millions of dollars have been  spent }>y Germany on.Heligoland, that-  little island made over as a sort of  "Greek gift" by Great Britain.  When the Island was ceded in 1890,  it was crumbling away fast,'and was  being speedily eaten into by the  waves of the North Sea.  The Germans strengthened- its red  marl and sandstone cliffs with great  granite -buttresses 16 feet thick" and  240 feet high. All cracks and fissures  in the crumbling.cliffs were filled in  with ferro-concrete, So that now tlie  sea battles in vain against the walls  of the little island, which is only a  vnile in length by some one-third of  a mile in width.  To. the south of the lower part of  the island was made a shelter for  tropedo boats,, submarines and small  cruisers,-at a cost of more than $10,-  000,00.0. It was to this shelter that  the German ships fled when attacked  and defeated in' the battle of Heligoland Bight.  A high cliff separates this- low-lying part of the island, the "IJnter-  land," as it is called,-from the high  land, or- "Oberland." The whole  length of the top of this cliff is heavily protected .by barbed ,. wire, ai;d  apart from a small elevator, the only  'way. by which any one can go from  the "Unterland" to the "Oberland" is  by means of a zigzag road leading up  lo the top of the, cliff.  This, road up' the cliffs leads almost directly to a little town. This  little town", complete with its church  and school," contained at the commencement of the'war, only a few-  hundred .inhabitants chiefly workmen,  employed in tlie fortifications, and  the garrison, with their families.  Further north are the newly built  Zeppelin sheds ana aeroplane ' hangars.- It was from thesevsheds that  the two Zeppelins came, to attack  the torpedo boats and submarines  who convoyed the seven British a'ir-  men hi' their recent daring dash to  Cuxhaven.  ' To the left of the town, standing  near the edge of the "litis, is a large  monument which was erected in memory of the famous German poet,-  Fallersleben, who wrote. Germany's  most popular war song or hymn,  "Dcutschland, -Deutschland Ueber  Alles." ...  Since the war started a large number of the buildings have been razed  to the ground, and every person not  actively required for the defense of  the North Sea fortress has been sent  away from the ishu.d- The island itself is . connected by a number of  cables with Cuxhaven, and. should  these be cut there*is a powerfuLwire-  less-apparatus .installed.  -. All over Heligoland there are powerful searchlights by which any vessel can be detected at night, no matter from what direction she approaches.  "Many parts of the island, as well  as .the buildings, Have been heavily  armor-plated, and some of Krupp's  biggest 12-inch and, it'is also stated,  16-inch guns, mounted on disappearing platforms, and cunningly, hidden,  guard all approaches from the|sea.  The ocean for some miles around is  all mapped out in squa.es. each gun  having its square or squares'Mipon  which it can be instantly trainetl or  fired, should an unlucky hostile ship  be in that little space of sea.  10*.

Our Inadequate Agriculture  Less Land Under Cultivation in Section's of U.S. Than Fourteen  Years Ago  Economists tell us that the cause of  high- prices is to be found in the abnormal increase of the world's gold  supply, in the "brigandage of the'middlemen',"-'in'the'.'growth of luxury, tuo-  aggression of labor and all manner of  disturbance in the industrial world.  But there is yet another explanation  which has not received the considera-'  tion its reasonableness demands. In  great agricultural states like, Illinois  and Iowa less land is under cultivation  today than fourteen years ago; many  important counties in states like Ohio  are producing less food than they did  before the Civil War. During the last  census period population in the United States increased-21 per cent, but  agricultural production increased TO  per cent. only. To meet an increase  of 21 per cent., in the number of  mouths to bo fed. the production of  wheat increased only 3.8 per cent., of  orchard fruits 1-8 per cent., while the  production of cor., actually fell off by  4.3 per cent.���������Harper's Magazine.

Thrilling Experience of Airman who was Detailed to Drop Bombs  on  the  Enemy's  Position,   and who Accomplished His  Mission after a Miraculous Escape from  Destruction  became perfectly^ silent round about-  me. I knew then that 1 had overdone  the pull iind forced the 'machine up  almost vertically and in consequence  had stopped her. And I knew that  now she would probably slip back or  fall over sideways.  "One or other of these things happened. I don't know which. In any  case, I felt my holding-in strap tighten and knew that I was upside down.  It was still as dark as night. I tried  to right myself and failed. I tried,  frantically- I began to feel that it  was all over with un and I experienced the most acute agony of mind. But  suddenly and quite unexpectedly that  feeling passed . away. I had triad  everything and failedT I was conscious of that. Now a,wonderful sensation of calm took the place of the  anguish. It was the most easy and  delightful sensation I have ever felt.  And meanwhile I was falling, I suppose, at the rate of about 200 miles  an hour.  "The next-thing I remember is that  my holding-in belt burst and that  automatically I jammed my knees farther under the indicator board . and  gripped the seat with my elbows." I-  had taken my feet off the rudder bar.  I was some inches out of the seat and  the machine was upside "down. I  only knew it was upside down in a  vague way because I had left the seat.  I was quite happy and I had no anxiety of- any kind. I did not feel anything. Then in a moment the aeroplane fell out ot the cloud and I saw  the sea rushing up towards me. -My  hands automatically moved the controls and at 1,500 feet .the machine  righted herself. Then at intervals I  heard a curious snapping sound in my  ears and realized that I was deaf. I  could, not hear my own engine."  This deafness was'due to the very  rapid descent and consequent sudden  increasing atmospheric pressure. It  had a psychological effect, for it helped accentuate the sense of depression  which followed the return to safety.  The airman, who had passed from vio-  len- agitation of mind to the realm of  despair���������he desired'me to emphasize  the easy character of the state which  he said disproved all he had expected  and feared���������now suffered a severe -  sense of shock. But he continued on  his way, mastering himself until ho  was able to launch his bombs.  The first of these achieved its purpose and he saw that it had done so.  Immediately a reaction of feeling set  in.    He  confessed,  "I  was  so  happy  that I shouted.   I simply couldn't contain myself.   I felt in all my pockets  for something else to throw down. Ail  I  could   find   was my  matchbox,  and  so I threw that."    It testifies to the  splendidly attuned slate of his nerves';  that next day he was able to carry  out his work more or less as if nothing had happened.    In proof that the  aeroplane   had. really   turned   upside  down, it was discovered that the airman's  revolver had  fallen    from his  pocket oh the machine.  What our-airmen have done every  one knows In a more or less general  way, says a writer in the London  Times. What they have felt while  accomplishing their work belongs to  themselves alone. But occasionally it  is' permitted _to learn something of  these feelings and sensations, aud as  the psychology of.aerial warfare is of  surpassing interest any light which  can be thrown upon it has a value.  I have listened to a description of  what 1 shall, call "psychology of a war  flight,", by one of our younger airmen. ��������� ,  .The airman received'orders to go to  a particular place, and there drop  bombs. His route lay along the sea  coast over a portion of "country occupied by.the enemy and strongly, fortified against hostile aei'opl-'' nes. Shortly after setting out the zone of fire  was entered and in order to avoid mishap'it became necessary-to take advantage of such cloud cover as could  be obtained. "I saw," my informant  said, "a heavy clouu in front of me,  hanging over the sea. ' It was a grey  cloud or I shouldnot have entered it;  black clouds are well known to be exceedingly dangerous."   .  "I was flying at a height of about  7,500 feet when I entered the cloud.  For a^few; moments all went well and  the-cover was very welcome. The  cloud was of the fleecy order and I  could see my corny - ss and barometer  quite clearly. After a while, however,  the mist became thicker, and I felt  that I was losing my bearings. I was  flying quickly' but I did not know in  what direction. My compass began  to swing- round in the riibst erratic  way and I saw the barometer begin to  ,fall."  These manifestations did not,'however, occasion alarm. But what folio w-ed was unpleasant. Owing to. the  effect of (he strong and contrary currents which are met with in eve.-y  cloud the machine/began to sway  about violently. "The airman felt himself" knocked, from side to.side" and  had a very difficult task to manipulate  his elevator "and rudder. The wind  shrilled about him and the density of  the cloud increased from moment to  moment. Nevertheless, it- was still  possible to distinguish the indicators  and 'thus to form' some idea of the  position of the machine in space.  Then suddenly everything became  quite dark, so that lie could not s  much as see his hands in front of  him."  "I was not frighter.ed so far, at  least! do not think so. But I began  to think that to have been shot by the  enemy would have been the lesser of  the two, evils- However, thinking was  difficult: I required all my wits for  the work in hand. I was completely  lost- I did not even know at what angle the machine was flying. Then U13  thought occurred to me that I might  have a slip-side or that the machine  might turn over, and I made up my  mind to try to rise up out of the  cloud. I pulled the elevator for this  purpose, and next nioraen. everything  Billy Sunday's.Style  In a recent sermon Billy Sunday,  the American evangelist, took up the  story of David and Goliath. Here is  an extract from thd verba turn report:  "Who's that big stiff doing all the  talking?" asked^ David of his brothers  or-2 day.  "Oh, he thinks he's the whole thing;  he does that stunt tve.vy day," was the  reply-'  "Say," said David, "you-mutts make  me sick. Why don't ..you go out and  soak the.guy? Don't let'him get away  .witii the. dough." So Saul said to  David: "You'd bette.- take my armor  and sword.' David put them on. but  lie felt like a fellow with a hand-me-  down suit about four times too big for  him,-so he shoo': tlitni off and went  down to the brook and picked up half  a dozen stones. He put one of them in  his sling and soaked Goliath between  the lamps.���������Edmonton Journal.  There can be little advantage in  trying to value an unpurchased  future.

The Stock is Low  Saskatchewan Leads Provinces of Dominion in Production of.Wheat  A striking .fca'.urc of the important  position which Saskatchewan holds as  a wheat-producing province of the  Dominion is contained in a table of  statistics published recently at Ottawa showing the stocks of wheat  held in Canada on February 8, 3915.  The table divides this into two-classes  (1) the wheat stored in elevators and  In transit, and (2) the quantity of  wheat in hands of farmers themselves,  rt is estimated that on the date named  there were 79,130,593 bushels held in  elevators, etc., r.nd 29,554,000 held by  the farmers of the Dominion. Of the  latter amount it is interesting to note  that one-third is credited to Saska'.-  chewan with 10,289,000 bushels, which  is the best showing made by any of  tlie provinces. Alberta comes second  with 7.1215,000 bushels, and .Manitoba  third with a total of 5,791,000 bushel'-.  Following is tlie table showing th'!  estimated amounts held by farmers:  Prince Edward Island ..     -161,000  Nova   Scotia           89,000  New  Brunswick           61,000  OilfeUt'C         277,000  Ontario      5,297,000  Manitoba      5,791.000  Saskatchewan    10,289,000  Alberta      7,215,000  Jjritli-h  Columbia           74,000  Government Crop Report Shows Lower  Stocks   in   Farmers'   Hands  Of the grain erops other than wheat  the proportions of the previous years  production estimated to be in farmers' hands on March 31 are smaller  than in any. former year on record.  Oats show a balance of .-85*843,000  bushels, ot 27 per cent.;, barley, 7,-  430,000 bushels, or 20i������ per.cent.; rye,  343,700 bushels, or 17 per cent:; buckwheat, 1,792,500 bushels or 212 per  cent.; corn, for husking, 2,928,000  bushels, or 21 per cent., and flaxseed  740,700 bushels, or 10 percent  Of potatoes which gave the excellent yield last year of S5.672.000 bushels, 37.7 per cent., or 32,310,000 bushels, were in farmers' hands March 31, ,.  this proportion being larger than in  any of the last live years, excepting  1013, when 43 per .cent., or 36,610,000  bushels remained over from the harvest of l.������12. Of turnips and other  roots, 10,267,000 bushels, or 15 per  cent., remained over, and of hay and  clover tlie quantity in farmers' hands  is placed at 2.173,000 tons, or 21 per  cent, of the total crop of 10,290,000  tons.     .  Out of the total wheat crop of 161,- *  280,000 bushels, all but (J'/fc per cent.,  or 150,793,000 bushels proved to be of.  merchantable quality. This percentage, although below the exceptional  record of 1914, when the proportion  non-rnerchantale was less than 3 per  cent., is about equal to the average of  the last six years, during which tho  lowest proportion of merchantable  grain was in 1910-il, after the poor  season of 1910, when 12.8 per cent,  was estimated to be of non-merchantable quality. The proportions of tin  other crops in 1914, which proved to  be of merchantable quality, are aa  follows:  Oats, 91 per cent., 285,988,000 bushels; barley, 88 per cent., 32,022,000  bushels; rye, 90 per cent., 1,815,800  bushels; buckwheat, 84 per cent., 7,-  279,000 bushels; corn for husking, 80  per cent., 11,100,000 bushels; flaxseed,  88 per cent., 6,370,200 bushels; potatoes, 8C per rent., 74,165,000 bushels;  turnips, etc., 87 per cent., 60,218,000  bushels and hay and clover, 88 per  cent., 9,094,(100 tons.
