 ���������*���������-* 1**������*-���������' ������������������������=������w  - V  Kettle Valley Orchardist  FIFTEENTH YEAR���������No,  18  GRAND FORKS,   B. C, FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1916  $1.00 PER YEAR  ENTHUSIASTIC  LIBERAL MEETING  The Liberal meeting in the board  of trade rooms'on Weduesday evening was the largest and most enthusiastic ever held in tbe city. J. E.  Thompson, Liberal candidate for  this constituency, was present, and  delivered an excellent address.  The meeting was called to order  by President McCallum at 8 o'clock.  Mr. McCallum delivered an enthu-  siastic speech.. He contrasted the  crowded room with-the small attendance at meetings in former years',  and said that the contrast, augured  we.'l for a brilliant victory for the  party at the next general elections  His reference tothe recent sweeping  victories in the by-elections at the  coast brought out prolonged applause.  A letter from M. A. Macdonald,  -M. P.P., thanked the association for  its telegram of congratulation on his  big victory in Vancouver. Mr. Macdonald expressed entire confidence  of the defeat of the Bowser, government in the general elections.  The following officers were elected:  President, Neil McCallum; vice-  president, Wm. Bonthron; treasurer,-  E C. Henniger; secretary, E. J.  Fitzpatrick; executive, P. H. Donaldson; A. J. McCallum, N. L. Mc-  Innes, H. W. Gregory, Arthur  Webster; delegite to district association, R Louis Mytton Sir Wilfrid Li urier was elec ed honorary  president, and H. C. Brewster honorary vice-president  J. E. Thompson, Liberal candidate for Grand Forks riding, being  called on for a speech, prefaced his  a Idress by complimenting the association on the large attendance. He  also congratulated the Liberal party  of British Columbia on the election  of Leader , H. C. Brewster in Victoria The present able opposition  at Victoria would undoubtedly uncover many transactions that had  been hidden by the Tory administration. The Liberal victories at the  coast were won by the aid of many  prominent Conservatives. He said  the election of Hon. Lome A Catn'p-  bell was by no me ins an assured  fact. The contest would be dtcided  by the supreme court, and he believed that MayorWulson would yet  be declared the member for Ross-  land. The speaker said the Liberal  party favored aid to agriculture and  a workmen's compensation act that  would protect the workingraen. He  reviewed these planks in the Liberal  platform, and contrasted them with  Premier Bowser's measures on these  subjects. The government's workmen's compensation act gives widows  of killed workmen $20 per month,  while a pension anywhere from  85,000 to $15,000 per year would  bs voted our retired agent general  in London. He favored tbe establishment of copper and nickel refineries in Canada. When a copper  refinery is established, it should be  located at Grand Forks, where the  bulk of the copper of the country is  sm-lted. The Liberal party was also  in favor of giving aid to shipbuilding on the coast. Mr. Thompson  .called particular attention to the  policy of the Liberal  party   which  with the government of the province,  for the establishment of an industrial school for returned crippled  soldiers. It was proposed to conduct this school in connection with  the department of labor. This school  would afford returned soldiers, ren-  dered incapable of following their  former vocations by reason of  wounds would be taught new trades  suited i-to their'-'altered' conditions*-  The speaker closed his address by  complimenting the association on the  personnel of the officers elected.  A Liberal association would be or  ganized at Cascade this week. When  the campaign of the general elections opened prominent speakers  from the coast, including Dave  Whiteside of New Westminster, C.  H Brewster 'of Victoria and M. A.  Macdonald and Mr. Cowper of Vancouver, would visit the riding, and  he himself would spend a great deal  of time in the city. He thanked tho  association for the encouragement  given him in Grand Forks.  President McCallum, in one of his  usually happy speeches, thanked  the association for his re-election as  president.  Vice-President W. Bonthron was  proud of tbe honor bestwed upon  him, and would do everything he  could to further the interests of the  association.  Treasurer E. C Henniger was in  a partioularly happy mood, and  spoke several times during the evening. He was pleased at Mr. Thompson's presence at the meeting, and  was sure of a great Liberal victory  in the general elections. The ma  cbiue government had depleted the  province of its resources. If there  was one man in the province that he  wanted to see elected, above all  others, it was John Oliver. If there  was any man in the province who  deserved the name of Honest John,  Mr. Oliver was that man. While  we felt elated now over the  reXSent. victories of our party, it  would not do for us to rest on our  laurels, but to keep right on. working for a great victory iu the coming elections.  N. L. Molnnes was pleased to be  a member of the executive, and he  would do all he could for the party.  . H. A. Sheads would work to se  cure the election of Mr. Thompson.  J. L. Manly reminded the meet  ing that recruits from other parties  made very good Liberals, and he  himself would work hard to down  the machine. The people of Grand  Forks should not complain because  the Liberal candidate bad not been  selected from our city As* it was,  the Liberal candidate of the riding  was nearer to us than the Conservative candidate.  F. Miller Sr. had always been a  Liberal, and after the next election  he would be on the winning side.  Briel speeches were also made by  A. J. McCallum, John [Donaldson  and others.  The president appointed P. H.  Donaldson, F. J. Miller, B Quinn,  A. O. Frache ahd Charles Meggitt  as an entertainment committee, and  then the meeting adjourned until  tbe second Wednesday in April.  POULTRYMEK'S  E  The annual meeting of the Grand  Forks Poulty and Pet Stock asso-  ciation.waaheld in the club rooms  on Friday; March 3, and owing to it  being the first meeting of the year,  there was a large volume of business  to be transacted. President Lawrence called the meeting to order at  8 p.m.  A. D. Morrison, the delegate at  the annual convention of the British  Columbia Poultry association, read  a very able report of the business  transacted at that meeting. The report was adopted as read- and Mr.  Morrison was thanked for his services.  The officers elected for the ensu  ing year are as follows: Honorary  president, Mayor Acres; honorary  vice-president, G. A. Evans; presi-  dent,E. C. Henniger; vice-president,  J. A. Hutton; secretary-treasurer,  W. Liddicoat; executive, O. G.  Dunne, T. Bowen, C. Haverty; auditor, H. A. LeRoy.  It would be a great help to the  association if a larger number of  members could be obtained to assist  in carrying on the good work being  done. Anyone desirous of joining  are kindly requested U> hand in  their names .to t the secretary. The  membership fee is orily'-Sl.OO per  per. The next meeting of the association will be held on April 7 th in  the club rooms.  S OF IHE CITY  came up before Judge Cochrane on  Wednesday morning. J. H. Ryley  appeared for defendants. Decision  was reserved.  Mr., and Mrs: R. T. Cook and  child, of Anyox, are visiting in the  city at the home of Mr. Cook's parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Cook.  Mr. Cook is the Granby company's  druggi&t at Anyox. The visitors  will remain in the city for a few  weeks.  LeRoy R. Powers and Miss Pearl  Ballew, of Danville, were married  at the Presbyterian parsonage in  Republic last week.  L  S  BIG MAJORITY  Seven cars of ore and coke have  arrived at the North port smelter.  This is the first shipment, but it is  understood that they are now prepared to receive all shipments,which  will be largely increased. The  blowing in of the smelter, scheduled  to take place about the first of the  present month, was only awaiting a  car of oil in transit.  The regular annual meeting of  the British Columbia Entomological  society will be held in Victoria on  March 11. A number of interesting  papers will be read. R C. Treherne,  field officer of the entomological  branch of the Dominion department  of agriculture experimental farm,  Agassiz, is the secretary of the society.  Since the coast cities smashed the  political machine the hens on Fourth  of July creek have commenced to  lay larger eggs. John Jacobs  brought one into The Sun office this  week that weighed four ounces  The large vacant resident just below the cemetery in the West end,  known as the Trotter house, was  burned to the ground at about 6  o'clock last Sunday morning. It is  not known how the fire started, but  it is supposed to have been set by  hoboes who had found shelter there  over night, or by some parties who  had denuded the interior of the  house of its fittings, and by this  means wished to hide their crime.  The destruction of tbe house removes one of tbe pioueer landmarks  of Columbia. It was erected by Rev.  Ralph VV. Trotter in the early days  of the city, aud at that lime it was  the finest house in the valley. Of  late years it had been allowed to go  to wreck, but its pretty architectural  design attracted the atteiuiou of  all who passed by it.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  R. R. Gilpin, customs officer at  this port, makes the following, detailed report of the customs receipts  at the head office in this city and at  the various sub-customs offices, for  the month of February, 1916:  Grand Forks  ...$13,006.44  Phoenix   1,272.56  Carson  '   126.31  Cascade ...-       49.67  Total $14,454 98  Total February, 1915...    1,164 88  By a vote far more decisive thai:  that given in the city of Vancouver  one week earlier, the electors of Victoria on Saturday last placed on  record their repudiation of the Bowser government and the rejection ot  his finance minister.  Harlan Carey Brewster, leader of  the Liberals of British Columbia,  was elected over A. C. Flumerfelt  by a majority of 2,397, and the  minister came within an ace of losing his deposit.  The majority was quite unexpected by even those Conservatives  who had conceded Mr. Brewster's  election, but was no surprise to  those in" touch with the splendid organization of the Liberal party. So  carefully bad their canvass been  made that it was believed that if  the minister did not lose his 8200  he would barely save it.- And that  is just what happened. The vote  was: Brewster, 4,824; Flumerfelt,  2,427.  INDEPENDENT COMPANY  OF RIFLES NEWS NOTES  The Western Pine Lumber company's mill on Smelter lake will  commeuce operations about the  25th inst. Local workmen who  wish employment at the mill are advised to make application at once  to Manager W. M. DeCew.  The Sun man has been elected  honorary vice-president of tbe local  poultry association, and be is now  engaged in sprouting a second pair  of wings. The honor is appreciated,  as he has always had a fondness for  chickeng.  The case of Mrs. Perkins and Mr.  It Topp, charged by Mrs. T. Ryan with  made a comfortable   breakfast for a   maliciously   destroying  property of  provided, if the party was entrusted   workingman. which she claimed to be the  ovner,  Maud S and Dan Patch  Names to conjure with among  lovers of horseflesh were Maud S and  the famous Dan. They were the out  come of patient training grafted on  sterling qnalities on form an,d endurance; they were developed in speed  and staying power when some evidence of their excellence had been  discovered.  In the dairy world many names of  exce[lent cows are exblazoned in history. They have made astounding  records in the hands of careful feeders  who discovered their ereat capacity.  Note two points: First, although  many good records are now known,  the possibilities of such yields of milk  and fat were, in many cases', totally  undreamed of even by the men who at  one time owned such magnificent  cows; second, what has added to the  value of the world's record breakers  is the very fact that simple, cold  arithmetic has been used to calculate  the milk and fat production.  Some system of dairy records, then,  has helped this discovery of the compeers of Maud and Dan; records are  helping dairymen today to discriminate intelligently between the plodding utility cow and the high speed,  long endurance cow, A note to the  dairy division, Ottawa, will bring any  reader, without cost, samples of record forms, the keeping of which will  prove a nseful eye-opener and increase  your income.  The company left on Monday for  a route march to Cascade. On arrival at'Billings a surprise was in  store, as the ladies had a dinner  ready for the men in the Billings  hall. On Monday evening a dance  was given.  On Tuesday the men attended the  dance at Cascade given by the Red  Cross association.  On Wednesday the men were all  injvited out to card parties.  The return journey wae made on  Thursday, and the men arrived in  barracks about 2 p.m., without a  single case ol sore feet after their  tramp.  The following men have been attested and taken on the strength of  the company:  Private Henry William Grant  Tanner, Rock Creek.  Private John Joseph Hare, Cascade.  Private William Wilson, Cascade.  Private Thomas Jackson Elliott,  Grand Forks.

C.  sum  A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS PEB PLUG  If  iff  1 c  I  Fighting in the  Style of Old  French   Despatch   Boat   Sailors   Leap  to   Deck  of  Turkish   Schooner  Hark back to the day of the old sea  ruvers, when ship ran alongside ship,  made fast with grappling irons, and  -.hen tho crew, armed to the teeth,  swarmed over Hie" enemy's side and  rasped out (lie stern command, "Surrender or die!" Such exploits belong  lo tho -long ago? True; but one of  the most, settled habits of history i*s  , to repeat herself, and in an amazing  fashion, and this is precisely what  happened quite recently.  Yes, a ship taken, by a boarding  crew. One looks for surprises in  these days of ultra modem sea warfare, but to think that one ship should  capture another thus after the fashion  of Surcouf, riTcrmitc and the privateers of old is not a supposition that  normally belongs to November, 1915.  One might sooner believe that the  homeric charges of Murat's hussars  and Ney's cuirassiers would Jive-  again than that in these days, when  squadrons pound, each other at a distance of twelve miles or more, sailors would leap from one vessel to another and engage in hand to hand  combat.  Just one thing saddened Lieut. La-  combe and his ten men. When they  leaped aboard ILe Turkish schooner  they had no boarding cutlasses; ail  (hat remained had been locked up long-  ago in tlie glass cases of naval  museums, and here was the chance'to  use them. Perhaps Surcouf laughed  from ilie shades and said, "They forgot something." "Nevertheless, the  moderns did as well as they could  with revolvers and whatever blades  they found.  J'erhaps the combat lacked some of  ihe jjicturesriiieiiess of a great sea  fight of old, when the belligerents  .came so close together that their rigging became intertwined and the gunners   could   not  man   their  pieces���������  before the astonished Turks realized  what was happening-, Lieut. Lacombe  and his ten men leaped over the side  to the enemy's deck���������eleven wild  men, tiring revolvers, slashing with  knives, hurling themselves upon four  times their number and against the  odds of belter arms. The Turks, who  tried to resist were shot or knocked  down: the Frenchmen seized the  helm, hauled down the sail and within a few minutes were masters oi the  ship, over which they hoisted the ensign of France.  Tlien through the maze or tangled  tackle, torn sails and broken spars  on the reddened dock lie Turkish commander hurried over the bodies of  his fallen men to surrender to Lieut.  Lacombe.  Later in the day the despatch boat  paraded before the" great armored  ships of the French squadron and her  commander and men were loudly acclaimed. Both men and boat have been  praised in that official recital of brave  deeds, "Tlie Order of the Day."  The Farm Home  the  Banking Privileges  For the Farmers  Have   Charge  Minnesota  whan it was strategy to ram the enemy ship, while the boarding parties  stood ready for instant action; :but  the. encounter here chronicled, says  rillustration, was lacking in nothing  that signifies courage or dash or ad-  riot manoeuvre. The descendants of  Lieuty Lacombe and his boarding party of ten will recount their exploits  just as do heirs to the memories of  older sea glories.  It came to pass that a little despatch, boat of the -French Mediter-  'ranean patrol captured a large Turkish schooner, on which were forty-  three soldiers, of whom eleven were  officers,-'commanded by Ahmed Fehmi  Bey, a chief, who was taking war supplies to the Senussi of Tripoli am:  presents for their leaders. On the  morning of that day, under a heavy  sky. the Nord Caper, proud in its new  promotion (o the rank of auxiliary despatch beat, was cruising off Crete.  Only a few weeks before it had been  a common trawler be Boulogne���������squat,  honest, but to all appearance hopelessly bourgeois. Fortune had been  kind and the Nord Caper was happy,  eager to do something to distinguish  herself and her commander, for ships,  a-s every mariner knows, are quite .s  capable of sentiment as any human  being.  Ambition was fated  A sail was sighted in  on closer view it was  to a large schooner,  sweeping line of lateen  to be gratified,  the offing and  seen to belong  whose     long.  rig and broad  expanse of canvas plainly belonged  to the Mediterranean-and particularly  to its eastern waters. Such rigging is  known elsewhere, but in less degree.  The schooner, whose Turkish and  therefore hostile nationality was suspected, manifested no inclination to  exchange salutes with the French  patrol boat. Instead it kept.on its  way as speedil; and as intently as  possible, ignoring all courtesies ot the  ?ea.  As commander of a despatch bo;'  in the patrol service, Lieut. Lacombe  had a duty to perform���������to hail the  runaway schooner, ask her captain  why. and demand that he show his  papers. Tlie French lieutenant signalled, but ths ��������� other commander  .-bowed not Ihe slightest dsposiiion to  heave to, hence Lieut. Lacombe resolved upon the tactics of long ago���������  to board Ihe other ship, which plainly  was an enemy. He had only ten men  ;ivailable for the attack', every one oi  the others on board being needed either in manning the boar itself or its  machinery.  To sweep alongside a moving vessel  i* an undertaking always accompanied by more or lens risk, but the  French commander accompanied this  with skill and came so close that the  main boom of the enemy scraped tlie  hull of (he Norr. Caper. The French  rr~:\v book.'d into the shrouds of the  Turkish vessel, made as fast as they  could   with   grappling  irons  and then  Practical Farmer- Will  of Loan Business of  Bank  A somewhat new departure in banking has been made by the First National Bank of Stillwater, Minnesota.  ,A department for placing farmers  on the same basis a.-j the business  man in the city as regards the rates  ot interest and borrowing eonver.i-.  enc".s on both long and short term  loans, and the appointment of an official���������a trained and experienced man  to help farmers customers in the solution of problems which they meet  on'the farm���������is the latest innovation.  Banks have been often known to  employ men to promote more profitable agriculture, bur. the one in question seeks to do more; its aims are  for increased service' on the part of  the bank, as well., as, or perhaps instead of, the instruction which; banks  so often seek to give; and that is-exactly what is needed. Instruction as  to. how to farm, while .-farm., loans are  at close to ten per cent, is beginning  to. pall. What farmers need, and are  entitled to,"is. the same service as is  given tho city merchant, and at the  same cost. vThe very fact that there  will be a practical Tanner attached to  the bank is worthy of congratulation,  [-lave you ever gone in to a banking  institution and been compelled to, deal  with some young chap in his teens  who possibly wouldn't know a hay  stack from a threshing machine? Perhaps you have.  In their published announcement  the Stillwater bank says that its officers realize that (hoy must have in  charge of the now department a man  who understands farm busi.71ess.in all  its details. In the practical working  out of tho loan featuro the manager  will visit farmers applying for loan's,  look over their property and di.scu.ya  with them, at their suggestion, any  problem pertaining to farm management, the use of more capital, for its  successful operation, or any other details that the owner may care to take  up. The bank states that it will be  ready to aid all active and progressive agricultural movements, and  specifically mentions the purchase  and sale of live stock.  The idea is a sane one, and could  be copied' by certain oilier banking  institutions with grace and impunity.  Things   That   Help  to   Make   Up  Sum Total, of a Real Farm  Home  There  are very few*  words  in  the  English language as dear as the words  home���������mother,   home     and     heaven.  Not enough farmers pay as much attention  to making the    farm a real  home, as  they  ought.    Not only the  "house"   but  the   whole  farm  should  be looked upon as "home," and plans  should be so laid as to bring the various fields constituting the homestead  under  such   management. as     to  not  only make them profitable  in  a  financial point of view, but pleasing and  attractive to look upon. If in cultivated crops take such good care of them  as to draw one's attention    as    they  pass, and if in grass, have the surface  smooth and  lawn like    after    bei*_g  mown.   Let the fence corners be neatly     mown,   with   no  hedgerows   loft  along them;  plant some trees, shrubbery and (lowers about the buildings,  and" allow no  broken down  waggon.*:  or old  implemer-ts    standing    about.  Keep the farm live stock in that condition that you will'not feel ashamed  to own it, but on.the contrary, be a  Hale  proud  that  it belongs   to  you,  when yon exhibit it to your friends.  All of these things help lo make up  the  sum total of a real farm  home.  The orchard and garden also come in  as   great   aids   towards   making   the  farm house, the most desirable place  on  earth,   for when  we  write  about  the home,  it is  hardly    possible    to  think   of   any   other    but   tho   farm  house, because it is nearer'to'naturc.  and   the   things   that  make   life   so  charming in the country. Year .by year  add   something  to   malce    the  home  more dear.���������e! H. Dow, in the Weekly  Sun.  TO CHANGE  YOUR SKIN!

Amazing Heroism at the Battle Front  Which  Won the Coveted  Honor  in the big advance on Loos that began on Sept. 25 the Victoria Cross was  won  by  seventeen  officers  and   men  of the 'British army.  The wonderful stories of their  amazing heroism, coolness and devotion io duty are told in the official  phrases of (he London Gazette. Some  of them are here reproduced:.  Major A. F. Douglas-Hamilton, commanding Uth Queen's Own, Highlanders: "When commai.ciing his battalion  during operations on Hill 70 on Sept.  26, when the battalions on his right,  and loft had retired, he rallied his  own battalion again and again and  led his men forward four times. The  last time he led all that remained,  consisting of about 50 men, in a mosv.  gallant manner, and was killed at  their head.

His book, "The German Mole," shows  how Belgium was undermined.  Harmless looking German clerks,  backed by such bodies as the Hamburg Association for Business Clerks',  took jobs with Belgian concerns at  little or no pay, worked up, got hold,  and slanted everything toward Germany. Paid German agitators stirred  up quarrels between the Flemings  >uid Wallons. German schools and  newspapers were planted to make  public opinion Teutonic. Belgium -is  not alone in this, for the same thing  was done in Russia, and the present  war is popular in Russia because it  means the rooting out of German influence. We Americans are altogether too simple and easy about  these things, and we would do well  to ponder the conclusion proved by  Belgium's bitter experience:  "No country can with impunity  grant to Germans the same advantages it grants to other foreigners,  sLtce Germans employ tho advantages derived from hospitality for  ends that are hostile to the country  that grants them shelter."���������From Collier's.  Saving   of  a   Crop   of   Barley  J. D. McGregor is more than a  raiser of fat cattle���������he is an experimenter in new lines of agriculture.  On his farm near Brandon, Man.,  he has several large wooden silos.  These structures have been formerly  filled with corn, but this year, owing  to the cold, wet weather, this crop  in that section ot tho Dominion  proved a failure.  The early frosts slightly damage-*  many acres of his barley. It was  impossible to thresh the partly  matured -grain, and lo save the  crop he put it all iu the silo. It was  "killing two birds with one stone."  The silos were going to be empty and  the barley was going to spoil, hut  by a, little extra care both "would-be"  losses were turned to a profit.  The barley, straw and all. was cut  up as line as possible and blown into  the silo together with a good hall-  inch stream of water under about  twenty pounds pressure. A little  more difficulty in tramping was experienced than with corn, bur. the  .stuff kept well and made quite as  good (cod as ordinary corn ensilage.  Next year Mr. McGregor is going lo  mix barley with his corn, and is also  going to try some peas in the same  manner.  occasionally, "like   the'. ukin,'  in   throwing oft poisons so that the system may   ^      __    not get clogged and leave i weak spot nnVcrTshakeV'by the' coutinuaTbo'inb-  for disease germs to enter the system.

The firmness  with which it has stood the shock of  war lias been hitherto remarkable.

Some Facts That Prove the Good Effects of Prohibition  The good effects of local option in  Canada are so wonderful that if they  were thoroughly understood, people  would rise in. a great wave of rebel-  ion against the .enormous burden of  of the liquor traffic. We don't need  to depend on any man's say or the  -statement of persons who might be  prejudiced. The last census report  1912 gives facts that would convince  any one whose mind is open to conviction. ���������  That report gives tho following  number of convictions for crime-per  ten thousand population in each province. Prince ' Edward Island 1.1,  New Brunswick 3.8, Nova Scotia 14.8,  Ontario 25.5, Manitoba 27.9, Alberta  ���������10.C, British Columbia 42.3, These  figures show that Alberta and British Columbia, '"wihic.li 'had no local ���������.option, had nearly forty times as much  crime as Prince Edward Island, which  had no licenses, and over eleven  times as much crime as New Brunswick, our next driest province. More  notable -still is the fact that the number of convictions for crime in each  province are in almost exactly inverse proportion to the amount of  local option. 'The more local option  tho less crime, the less local option  the more crime,. Finally they prove  conclusively that the cause of nearly  all the crime is drink.  /These are startling facts, but there  are many others which show what  fools and blind we have been to submit to be-ibosscd by this tyrant that  defies all governments and has shown  its willingness to sell the country to  the Germans rather than give up  their gains.  Few   seem   to  understand   the 'immense   burden' of  taxation  that    is  imposed  on  us  by  this  brutal  business.     It   has   recently   been   shown  that the .taxes 'collected in the nine  wettest   States  aro   sixty    per   cent,  higher  than in  the eight prohibition  States.    Think of it, sixty per cent,  of the taxes  going to produce more  poverty and crime.    Suppose Ave say  that in Canada it is only half of that,  why  do  we  submit  to' it?    In  1912  it was shown that the liquor traffic  cost the country nine times as much  as the revenue received from the business   and   although   they  had   been  freely published no one has attempted  to  deny the figures.    In  several  places   it  has  been   shown  that  the  criminals, paupers; and .orphans caused by the liquor traffic cost five times  as   much   as  the  reveuue     received  from the'business.''-.  "We would."' respectfully urge that  active measures be taken without delay to spread the truth and-so counteract the flood of falsehoods being  spread by the liquor traffic. ��������� What  about a Lincoln-Lee-Poster campaign?

Labor Income in Minnesota  Larger     Profits     From   the   Farm   of  More   Than   Average   Size  The best measure of the size of a  farm's business is the number of.  hours of man and horse labor annually expended. A unit of labor consists  of ten hours of man labor or twenty  hours of horse labor. Labor income  is the amount of the farm produce  used by his 'household, and of farm  expenses and interest on the investment at five per cent.  From records taken from -100 farms  in Rico county, Minnesota, it appears  that farms Avith less than 200 units  of labor annually gave a labor income  of $97; farms AA'ith from 400'to 600  units of labor gave a labor income  of $267; aud farms Avith more than  1,000 units of labor gave a labor income of $605.  The efficiency of man labor-is even  more important; than the amount of  .time expended. The. labor income  gradually increased from Su, where  the-hours of each man'.'. for a yeai  were 1,500 or less, to $633, where the  hours of each man Avere more than  3,500 each year.  All of Avhich indicates that a farm  business of; more than average size  gives opportunity for high efficiency  of man and horse labor, and a farm  business of more than average size  coupled with high- labor efficiency  brings profits in farming.

Hollows in Eggs  Reason For Air Spaces Found in  Every   Egg  There is an air space in every egg,  but we notice it particularly in a" boiled one, because the contents have  been made solid by cooking and made  the hollow space more apparent. This  space is a provision of nature so that  the chick which grows Avithin the  shell may have air to breathe from  the time it comes to life until it becomes strong enough to breakthrough'  the shell to  the outside world:"  To  generate/life  in the  egg  it  is  necessary  that it  be  subjected to  a  certain degree of heat for. a period of  Canadian women are continually writ- ) -\ days.

Eggs Will Be Dear  Great Opportunity for Development or  the Egg Market in Canada  For the first time in a number ot  years eggs have taken a prominent  place in Canada's export trade. This  is largely due to the unprecedented  demand for eggs on the part.of the  British market and the fact that  British dealers haA-e shown a marked  preference for Canadian eggs over  United States oggs and a Avillingness  to pay a distinctly higher price' for  them.  So great, in fact, has been the demand that Canadian dealers iha\re  shipped practically all of the -avail-  ablo Canadian storage product to the  oM- country. As a result, there is not  in Canada at the present time sufficient eggs in storage to supply home  consumption until fresh receipts in  appreciable quantities begin to come  ill.  Quantities of eggs from the United  States, hoAvever, are being imported  into Canada, some in bond for export,  but the larger part to take the place  of the Canadian product- exported.  On account of the keen demand for  Canadian- eggs above mentioned,  United States eggs can be laid" down  in Canada at the present time, -duty  paid, at several cents per dozen less  than the price 'at'which Canadian  eggs are selling- for the export, and  they should be procurable by the  consumers accordingly.  On the other hand; the Canadian  market at the present time is 'very-  firni for Canadian "specials" (new-  laid) the production of. which is hot  enough in most instances to supply  the demand at local country markets, j  This means that high prices Avill have  ���������to he paid in consuming centres in  order to draw,'a portion of these supplies from local points. Producers  may therefore definitely expect reasonably high prices during the period  of low production for fresh gathered  eggs that will grade "specials."  The question has been raised as to  whether the phenomenal demand, on  the part of the British market, for  Canadian eggs .-will' continue. This  depends entirely upon the quality of  Canadian eggs exported. Canada has  tremendous possibilities as an egg-  producing country. The. poultry industry is at present but a mere frac- j  tion of '."what it���������might be. It remains,  therefore, for those most interested in  the development ot his trade to  make the best possible use of their  present opportunities, ascl. by careful  supervision rof the quality of Canadian eggs going forward- to pave the  way for an extensive and profitable  export trade in the future.���������Toronto  Globe.

We SUN PRINT SHOP  v  The  FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1916  The  following  accusattons,  made on the  Moor of the local house by Ernest Miller,  member for Grand Forks, are so silly that  they ��������� scarcely deserve to be. noticed. They  show, however, to what desperate straits the  ���������������������������overnment has been reduced in its efforts to  mislead the electorate:  "The Liberal appeal in  the recent  by-elections was based   on nothiug but exaggeration,  insinuation and denunciation.    There was not  a word of clear-cut criticism   offered by the  opponents of the government.    Both in Vancouver and Victoria a gang of foreign manipulators, expert in the art of corruption, to the  number  of 150  had been brought here from  New York.    Working in conjunction with the  Liberals, these gangsters had been drilled and  trained, one  section to handle the prohibition  vote and tlie other to influence the liquor vote.  The  liquor  men  here  boasted that they had  voted for Mr. Brewster and that they had had  a meeting with the imported vote getters."  Mr. Brewster, the leader of the opposition,  promptly denied that any such  meeting  was  arranged or held, although the  charges   niade  by Mr.   Miller are  so   wild that they might  easily have been looked upon as a huge joke.  Mr. Miller  appears  to' have overlooked  the  fact  that   the. time  intervening  between the  issuance   of the   election   proclamations  and  election day would barely have given these imaginary gangsters time to reach the coast from  New York.    The drilling  and   training  must  have been carried on en route! Another point  that should be noted is, that the Liberal party  of British Columbia has not enough   funds  in  its treasury to pay the passage of half a dozen  men from Vancouver to  Victoria, much   less  transport    armies  of gangsters   across    the  continent  and  maintain   them   in    the coast  cities for weeks.    Mr. Miller has not strengthened himself with the people of his  constituency   by  resorting  to  fiction at a time when  they are demanding facts.  ancouve  general election will be a rout. Premier Bowser will be fortunate, indeed, if he can get  through the present session without a stampede by his followers.���������New Denver Record.  In one particular at least Mr. Flumerfelt  was misled, and to the extent of the deceit  practised we must express sympathy for him.  He was persuaded that he would be elected  in the byrelection by acclamation; that' the  Liberals would not have the hardihood to oppose him, knowing the handicap that an opposition candidate always must carry under  such circumstances. But'the ' minister of finance also deceived himself when he assumed  that he could "disavow" the record of the  government with which he associated himself.  The electorate could not accept that view. It  was the government's record that slaughtered  his political ambitions.���������Victoria Times.  t The result of the by-elections held in Ross-  land and Vancouver last Saturday can not  help but be disquieting to supporters of the  Bowser administration. Rossiand, despite all  tlie prestige which it would be entitled to on  account of being the bailiwick of a cabinet  minister, elected Lome Campbell bv such a  bare majority tnat it can fairly be said that he  got iu by the skin of his teeth; while in Vancouver, hitherto regarded as a sort of stronghold of provincial Toryism, Tisdall, another  portfolio candidate, was absolutely snowslided.  Unless something should happen to to create  a distinct volte'face of sentiment in the Terminal City electors within the next two or  three months, Saturday's result may fairly be  taken as an augury of what will happen to the  six Conservative candidates in that "riding at  the general election, which event the administration can not very well succeed in postponing much longer.��������� Revels.toke Review.

We have not yet seen any cablegrams from  Sir Richard McBride congratulating Premier  Bowser on the government's victory in the  Rossiand by-election.  Here is a bouquet for Mr. Campbell and  brickeats  for McBride,   Bowser, etal.:  "The election of Lorhe A. Campbell asmin-  ister of mines might be said to mark the beginning of ah epoch in British Columbia mining history.

Insect Pests in Canada  In the report of the Dominion en-  i)mologist for- the year ending  v March 31, 1914,which has justbeen  published, an account is given of  the activities of the entomological'  branch of the Dominion department  of agriculture, in the matter of controlling insect pests throughout Can-  T ada, and all who are interested in  '"���������' this subject will be repaid by a pe"  ���������;���������, rusal of this record of a year's work.  The, department now- maintains  nine field laboratories in different  parts of the Dominion at which investigations on various insect pests  are carried on. This line of work  constitutes the chief aspect of the  work of the branch. A large amount  of work is necessitated by the ad-  ministrafion of the insects and pests  regulations of the destructive insect  and pest act, involving the inspection and fumigation of trees and  plants entering.Canada. Perhaps one  of the most interesting of the activities of the branch is the work  - carried on against the brown-tail  moth in Eastern Canada, pan,icu  ldrly the importation and establishment of the parasites of this insect  and the gypsey moth.. A map is  given showing the places in Canada  where the parasites of the brown-  tail and gypsey moths have been  distributed by ' the department.  Other tranches covered by the it-  port are investigations on insects af  feeling cereals and other field crops,  including an account of the notorious army -worm outbreak of 1913;  insects affecting fruit crops, as-the  result of which investigation, work  of great practical value has ensued;  insects affecting forest and shade  trees in which an account of the investigations of Stanley ' park, Vancouver, which has been so seriously  affected by forest insects,' is given;  insects'affecting domestic animals  and man'and insects affecting- gar-  " den and greenhouses. The report  is a record of marked- progress in a  branch of the department of agri  culture which not only t-ffpets agri  culture, but also forestry and public  health. Copies of this report mav  be had free on application to th*  publications branch, department of  (igriculture, Ottawa, and requests  for the report may be mailed free.

Finally he h.t upon a plan to induce her to return. He sent her a  copy of each of the local papers with  niie item clipped out, and when she  wrote to find out what it was he had  clipped from the papers   he  refused  to tell her.  The scheme worked admirably.  In less than a week she was home  to find out what it was that had  been going on that her husband did  not want her to know about. ���������  10 CENT ''CASOtiRETS''  IF BILIOUS OR COSTIVE  What He Is Now  The recruiting, sergeant with a  shrewd sense of humor has been  everywhere.

Thanks to the bitterness of the  weather, one Albatross machine was  captured by the Russians absolutely  intact. It was observed over the  Russian lines, and was allowed to get  well to the rear before a Russian  flotilla of aeroplanes' mounted and  cut oft its retreat, and concurrently  the artillery became busy.'  The Albatross soared* to altitudes  where the cold must have reached  ininus 31, or G3 deg. of frost, Fahrenheit. Soon it was seen to bo circling  aimlessly, aud finally it made a good  descent, quite normally, into some  marshes  behind the Russian lines.  After a couple of hours' search tho  : machine   was   discovered.     The   pilot  land observer were both dead in their  'seais, and  tho  machine  was  iii  perfect   condition.    The    men    undoubtedly  perished    through    the  intense  cold    aggravated    by    rapid    motion  through the ait-.  It is probable that the last conscious act of the pilot was to plane  down, that his and his companion's  amis being frozen, they' were unable  to loosen the stra.ps which bound  them to their seats, and that heart  ���������failure from cold brought death.

THE    SUN,    GRAND   .FORKS,    B. a  r^y'  Jt  ONLY A FRACTION OF TILLABLE LAND CULTIVATED  Three Hundred and  Twenty-Five   Millions  of Acres  of  Land  Suitable  for Agriculture in Canada, and There are Only  Fiftv-F.our Million Acres Under Cultivation  For fifteen years before llio war  came in ID 1-1 ro disorganize the civilized world Canada had been going  through an era of prosperity aim development which Had been'equalled  ' oniy once and never surpassed in the  history of tlie settlement of new countries, in the ten or lil'leen years immediately preceding the construction  of the Canadian 1'acilic Hail way, the  middle west and the Pacific siope in  the United States filled up and developed with hitherto unheard of rapidity. 'That record, up to then unequalled was seriously challenged by  this court! ry a quarter of a century  later. For years wc saw the packed  liners swinging into their clocks in an  -ane������din# line and great trains leaving by the scores and hundreds carrying new Canadians to new Canadian nomas.  To cojitrol and direct this mighty  stream we were forced co create and  set up much machinery. How well it  did its work the tens of thousands of  acres of rich wheat lands of Western  Canada, only yesterday virgin prairie,  the wfc"il buill, prosperous towns in  what were only a decade ago desert  places, bear ample witness.  Then cams the great' upheaval, the  dawn of chaos over a horror stricken  world and the damming up, for tne  time being, or" the stream of new life  and new blood from across the ocean  to our land.  Those years of rapid settlement  were marvellous, but, after all, how  really small a part of our country is  even yet under tribute to the basic  industry of Canada, agriculture. Figures are often .dull enough, but in  this case they' arc"* graphic. Those  given hero arc necessarily only approximate and given in round numbers, but they are the latest available,  based on the last census and form a  reliable source, says the Montreal  ' Star. To take our own province,  Quebec, we arc estimated to have  40,000.000 acres of land suitable for  agriculture. After a century and a  half only 16,000,000 acres of it are.  occupied and only one-half of this is  under cultivation, or one-fifth; of the  total. The Maritime provinces have  20,000,000 acres suitable for agricul-  ture-^and .11,000,000 acres of it is under cultivation. -.Ontario has 50,000,-  000 acres of agricultural land,.has  23,000,000 of if .occupied amL 1-1,000,-  000 acres of it cultivated. Manitoba  has 40,000,000 acres of-farm land and  raises crops- on -a quarter of it. Saskatchewan has 08.000,000 acres .ot  land for farming, her settlers have'  taken up 30,000,000, and have 14,000,-  000 acres under cultivation. Alberta,  with the biggest agricultural area in  Canada. S".000.000 acres, has assigned only -.'0,000,000 acres, and of this  only 4,000,000 is under cultivation.  Last of all, British Columbia, with  25,000,000   acres   of  farm    and   fruit  lands, has ",000,000 acres occupied ami  one-third of this actually under cultivation.  To recapitulate then, the Maritime  Provinces are cultivating only three-  twentieths of their available land,  Quebec one-fifth, Ontario a little over  a third, Manitobaone-quarter, Saskat  chewan a trifle over a fifth,  less than one-twentieth, and British  Columbia one-twenty-fifth. We have  got, all told, 325,000,00u acres of land  suitable for agriculture in Canada,  and we have under cultivation only  54,000,000 acres, or, roughly, one-sixth  of it. i Is there anyone who will dare  to estimate the wealth this land will  produce, the population it will support when it is all taken, up, all yielding the reward it is capable of yielding for labor bestowed?  For the .moment immigration from  across the ocean is almost at a standstill, and rightly so. Canada would  not at this time draw one man from  the firing line to increase her material prosperity. These men, like our  own boys, who have foregathered  with them on the fields of Flanders or  elsewhere, wherever flic world war is  Doing Splendid Work  For Returned Troops  The  being waged, are fighting-our battles  for us, spending themselves for the  salvation and welfare of Canada just  :s rua Indian fighters and the pioneers  of old spent themselves. They are  making straight the paths toward our  future, and it is the pare of those of  us . who cannot join them so to provide that that part of the future  which lies within our power to regulate shall be worthy of their sublime  sacrifice, when they come to us in  their thousands, as come they will  when the war is over.  We have tho land and the infinite  possibilities that arise from it. But  lee us not be content with a self satisfied contemplation of mere possibilities. Unfilled acres and undeveloped resources profit nobody. We  have had a machine for the direction  of immigration flowing into this  country, but, as it stands, it will be of  little enough use to us when the  crisis comes. We will need a far bigger and far more efficient equipment  than we have ever had if we' are to  handle the Hood of new population  that we can direct to our shores after  the war is over. It can be made to  break-all records and put all-precedents to the blush. There will be *.o  use in our attempting to handle it  ���������with--inadequate equipment. "We  have,, 'for ��������� the moment, leisure in  which either to enlarge our present  facilities for the handling of immigration or to create new ones. "When  the war is over and the rush is upon  us itwilil be too late. Failure to provide now for our certain needs will  be disastrous.  This is our opportunity, golden in  more senses than one..Shall we grasp  it, or shall we fail?  Work of the Canadian  Patriotic  Fund and the Soldiers'  Commission  The establishment of the Soldiers'  Aid Commission for Ontario, of which  the secretary is .Mr. C. N. Cochrane,  parliament buildings,  Toronto, is the  first result of the report recently issued    by    the hospitals commission,  and tho forerunner of others.  The care of the soldier who has returned to Canada, mutilated or weakened as a result of active service, .is  the prime duty of Canadians. For  some months cho Canadian Patriotic  Fund has been endeavoring to ensure  that the\men already back from Europe should suffer no want. This  work has b Jon 'voluntarily undertaken  by local committees of the fund, although iii-most instances their time is  Alberta j fully .occupied with the task ,of ma'k-  ' ing provision for the families of soldiers. "';  Bach soldier is interviewed at Que-,  bee by a representative of the fund,  and a confidential report sent by the  latter ,to the patriotic committee or  tho town to which the soldiei* is going. This serves the two fold purpose  of protecting- the fund against the  greedy or unscrupulous and of giving  the local committee information that  is helpful' in finding employment for  the deserving-. Not every man who returns to Canada wearing- his majesty's uniform is included, in the latter  category, but the great majority have  clone,their duty in the fullest degree.  To the latter it has been the privilege  of the fund to present a small badge  bearing the words, "For service at the  Front.'' The men who are wearing  these badges are the worthiest citizens that we can acknowledge. Like  charily, that badge should be allowed  to cover a multitude of sins.  Tlie work that the Canadian Patriotic Fund can do for returned soldiers, however, is limited by Act of  Parliament, and it has been specifically enacted that^vo assistance can  be given by the fund1 to. "any person  who is in receipt of any gratuity, pension or allowance paid by his majesty  or by any foreign government in consequence ot incapacity or death occurring Of incapacity or death oc-  accoimt and largely because the pensions and gratuities paid to incapacitated men are oft-times admittedly inadequate, it. has been necessary to  establish jt hospitals commission and  disablement fund. uThc officials of  the latter, in their report to the federal governm nt, recommended  among other measures, that provincial commissions be formed for-the  purpose of supplementing these pensions either by monetary grants or by  free training in various trades. The  Soldiers' Aid Commission of Ontario,  as we have said above, is the first  step iu this direction. Already it has  announced its intei-tibn 61: mobilizing  the manufacturers of Ontario and we  do not doubt that the process will be  facilitated by the manufacturers  themselves. Others also will be asked  to lend their aid in discharging a  great national duty and there is every  prospect that iiic-Canada at least the  traditional tragedy of the returned  soldier will have no place.

They aro not censored, she says, because they are printed in shorthand  Braille, a point type used for the  blind, which the censors are unable  to read.  Through the ��������� medium of these  journals iu the Braille system what  is probably tne most authoritative  article on Germany's lack of food  has reached this country. For the  first time it is revealed that every  man, woman and chilli in Germany  is living on slender rations, doled out  by weight, determined on after a conference of chemists, scientists and  physicians   in  Berlin.  The journal which brings the information is De Neue Zeit, or tho  New Time, a Socialist publication for  the blind, issued in Berlin.  "These uncensored accounts of conditions iu the warring countries tell  mo the true sentiment among the  working people and the intolerable  conditions that surround them,"  said Miss Keller.

Increase in Outshipments Due to Certain Enemy Ports Being Closed  The increase in exports of tobacco,  resin and petroleum from Britain has  subjected the British government to  considerable criticism on the ground  that the government, while stopping  neutral shipments, is permitting its  own shippers to increase their exports. Official cricles, while not  denying the accuracy of tho figures,  declare the condition duo to a change  in ports of .distribution instead of any  favoritism on the pait of the British  blockade.  French   resin  in  normal   times,   it  is pointed out, readied the continent  generally      through    .Hamburg    and  Antwerp, and with  both  these ports  closed  Britain  has   become  a  trai.s-,  shipment    place.    Besides    shipping!  enormous    quantitiss    of-tobacco  to |  her troops abroad, it is also pointed j  out, Great Britain has now become a'  distributing centre    for much of the  Chinese,  Greek,  Egyptian  and  Khod-  esian  tobacco    which    formerly  was  handled by continental ports.  American oil companies have imported enormous quantities of petroleum into Britain, where it is stored  preparatory for shipment to the continent when it is wanted there. Groat  Britain also serves as a storehouse  for much petroleum purchased for  the'use of allied governments, for  whom she acts as a distributoi.

But fame, is fleeting. Even when  the horse reached a fairly old age lie  was wanted badly by a Russian horseman, and George Ketchant- parted  with him for a consideration said to  be J2fi,000. Cresceus, it is said, did  not piease (he Russians as well as  they expec.ed, ami therefore it is not  surprising to hear that the great  horse- has   been  serf   to  the  front.  Shell   Industry   Permanent  insure the permanency of  Canada's  Steps to  the extensive shell industry develop  ed by the war are being taken. During his stay in Canada, Lionel Hitch-  ens recommended that such action be  instituted, and it is announced officially that the question has been referred to the Economic and Development Commission, which- will report  as to how best the industry may be  conserved. In tut, manufacture of  shells expenditures now in progress  in Canada aggregate about $300,000,-  000. The employees are estimated at  about 100,000. Subsidiary industries  in refining Copper and zinc have been  organized.  Decides on' Regiment of Indians  Enthusiasm prevails on the Indian  reserve:- over the decision of General  Hughes to allow the formation of a  battalion of Indians for overseas service. Although there are many Indians in tho contingents that have  gone, (lie policy generally lias been  to discourage enlistment. .All over (he  Dominion, loyal Indians have offered  their service and have been refused  and the Indian department states  (hat them will not be the slightest  difl'icully in raising a full regimcr!,  and   there  might   be   a  second.  It is a splendid tribute which E.  Alexander Bowell," the famous war  correspondent, pays to the valor and  efficiency of Ihe French armies in  the field.  "Wo have heard a lot," he  said in an interview, "of the efficiency and organization of the'-Germans. '..'���������;In my opinion, the French' arc  now equally efficient. That is a subject on which I think I am competent  to speak, for I watched the French  army grow, so to speak. 1 have seen  it from the Marne to Champagne,  which .I left but recently. In some  respects, indeed^ I think the French  army superior. The Germans have  efficiency but the French have efficiency plus the human element, and  that counts for a great deal. If a  French, battalion loses its commanding officer, it is not disorganized.  Every man knows his work, and, if  necessary, is able to act independently. That is a factor which the Germans do hot possess." ..'���������'. '  Speaking of the German bombardment and occupation of Antwerp, Mr.  Powell related how the Teuton wave  swept over what was apparently an  empty city. "At the first word of  the German approach," he said, "the  people fled to the cellars. When the  Germans came marching through the  streets, there was not a soul to be ���������  seen. I believe '"that .my,'photograph'-'  er and I, standing on the balcony of  the American consulate, were the  only spectators. I suppose the Germans expected to see a great demonstration. One would have thought that  the principal streets woiild have been  crowded with sightseers. There was  no one. Every window was boarded  up. .Every doorway was closed.  There was not a piece of bunting.  There was not even a stray dog on  the streets. , The Germans marched  down the magnificent "thoroughfare of  the main" street, and that was their  reception in Antwerp. I think my  photographer described the scene'perfectly when he remarked to me at  tlie time: 'You know it reminds me  of a circus which has come to town  a day before it Avas expected."  "I spoke a moment ago,'- Mr.  Powell went on, "of the efficiency ot  the French armies. /I do not wish  to be misunderstood in my remarks  about' German- efficiency. There  seems to be an impression here that  the Germans now in the field are  largely old men front soldiers-  homes or boys from school."* That is  not the case. The Germans have a  very formidable army today. A  j few*-weeks ago, I saw 20,000 German  prisoners taken iu the Champagne. I  talked with at least a score of them.  'While I saw old men and boys of between eighteen and nineteen years of  age, I should say that fully 05 per  cent, were men of between twenty  and forty, in the pink of health.  They were dirty and hungry of  course, but they were, first class  fighting men. The German army  is still extremely efficient and ex-  tremelv formidable. It is no use  hiding'that fact."  "In regard to efficiency of - the-  French armies, Were any-���������'particularly  striking instances brought to your  notice?"  "We'll, take for. instance, the organization of the scene painters. I  heard while travelling around in  France that the' scene painters from  the theatres had been mobilized for  war service. One hears so many  sfrange things in tiie war zone. But  I found afterwards that the mobilization  was    an  actual fact,    and    bad  proved remarkably efficient. What  tho Frenf/h government has actually done is tins: It has mobilized  ail tne scene painters from the thoa.-  trea and formed tnem into battalions.  Instead of painting drop ncjs for  theatres, ;iicy are now painting scenes  to conceal gun positions.   ,  "Suppose, for instance, you wanted to place a battery of guns in  a city square. In the ordinary  course of events, after that battery  had fired a few 'Shots, a German  taube would hover, above it, locatu  its position, flash It by wireless to  the Germans, and in an hour probably that battery would be out oi  action,-; with all the gunners dead.  Now the' scene painters would erect  a contrivance for all the world like  the top of a circus tent over the battery-. The canvas would be painted  to match the remainder of the square.  If it were summer, it might represent- a bed of geraniums or rhode-  dendrons, anything which would look  like the rest of the square. The  German airman above would then see  nothing of tlie guns. He would see  the canvas, but to him it would look  just like the remainder of the square.  He would think, as a matter of fact,  that lie was looking at the square.  The French gunners would be undisturbed- ; ..'..:  "I saw a humorous instance of the  efficiency of the scene painters only  recently. 1 was motoring along a  road on the -French front, not only  within range of the German guns, but  in .full view of the Germans, who  were probably not more than two  and a half miles away. Between the  road and the Germans, tho French  scene painters had erected a canvas  screen about twelve feet 'high, held  erect with bamboo poles. On the  screen was painted a perfect representation of an empty road with poplars growing by the side. The Germans could see the canvas through  their glass, and it would seem to  them as nothing more than an empty road, useless to shell. Screened  by the canvas, thousands of French  soldiers marched along, invisible.  The French had even carried- their  efficiency so far," Mr. Powell added  laughing, "as to establish watering  carts; at intervals to keep down tho  dust thrown' up by the men on the  march for fear the Germans should  see it and discover they were being  deceived.  "There is another thing the French  are doing and 1 do not think is  known here. An intelligence officer,  disguised as a, Belgium laborer or  wha.t not will ascend with a'French  aviator. Together, they will cross tho  German lines and come down fifteen  miles or so beyond. The pair will  agree that the aeroplane shall-return  at a certain hour a- few days hence  and ihe aviator will return to his  base leaving his companion. The disguised officer will penetrate the German lines, pick up all the information be can and then fly back with,  it at 'the appointed time to tbe  French lines. In an hour or two, a  mass of valuable information will bo  in the hands of the French general  staff.  The British forces in France now  number well over a million men, Mr.  Powell stated. "Tlie remarkable thing  about it is that, in all this transportation of men, not a single life has  been lost.'' lie said. There has never  been anything like it before and it is  to my mind one of the most remarkable things of the war."
