P., at' Ottawa: "The proposed tax  on profits of over 7 per centum is  causing grave fears that mining investments here will receive a serious  setback. We desire to pay a fair  share of the war expenses, but mining presents difficulties not found  in other industries in deciding  where profits really begin, and we  urge a most careful consideration  and a consultation with practical  mining men before a final decision  is made "  DECISIVE LIBERAL  T  Timberlake, Son & Co., jewelWs,  on Monday next will move into the  building on Bridge street owned hy  Wm.

While here the  board of works interviewed _i\ii.  Miller relative to putting in a path  way for pedestrians ou the CP.R.  bridge over the Kettle river. Mr.  Miller refused to grant the request,  giving as a reason that the increased  foot traffic over, the bridge would  increase the chances of accidents in  future.

Wood worth on behalf of  Moses B Cotsworth, who is appealing from the verdict in the Lucas  libel case, which was heard before  Judge ^Morrison and a jury and  which was decided against Mr. Cotsworth and the members of the Ministerial Union of the Lower Mainland. Alex Lucas, M L A. for Yale,  the plaintiff, was awarded S500  damages for the alleged libel contained in the pamphlet "The Crisis  in B. C" The notice of appeal was  filed by C M. Woodworth, who  acted as solicitor and counsel in the  original action, on advice of counsel  in the appeal, among them J. A.  Rues.sell.  With a vote of 9592 M. A.  Macdonald, the Liberal candidate in the Vancouver bv-  election, on Saturday last defeated Hon. C. E. Tisdall,  minister of public works and  the government candidate,  who received 5476. Premier  Bowser remained in Vancouver only long enough to hear  the result. He left on the  night boat for Victoria, where  another of his ministers, Hon.  A. C. Flumerfelt, minister of  finance, will go before the  electors of his city tomorrow,  and will be opposed by H. G.  Brewster, the leader of the  Liberal party.  The official returns were;  M. A. Macdonald,-v Liberal,  9592; C. E. TisdairConserva-.  tive, 5476; L. D. Taylor, Independent, 194; Macdonald's  majority over Tisdall, 4116;  total votes cast, 15,262; total  votes registered, 35,417. Taylor lost his deposit.  The result marked the  de:  feat of a powerful organization   known   as  the. Bowser  machine,   which   had     ruled  Vancouver,   with  the  rest of  the province,   for year.    The  result  was    not   unexpected  and yet it was.    The election  was unlike other elections and  was remarkable for the "silent  vote." Little money wits wagered   and  little   was offered.  The   party   lines   were    not  drawn by  the   people.    The  premier and  his   supporters  tried to nvuke it a party fight,  but the avalanche which came  down  upon   his  minister  of  public works was not all Liberal.    The rank and file of his  own   party,   wearied by   his  methods and iron hand,turned  upon him as the result showed.  His defeat, was  a  rout.    The  campaign endured a week and  was fought with bitterness.   j tive,   Messrs.    Wills,    Rlundell, J]J.  There are 76 billions tons  of coal   Evans.Connell, J. Ryan, J.

Lome,  Campbell, minister of mines,  was elected over Mayor Will-  son, Liberal, at Saturday's  by-election, by the narrow  margin of nine votes. The  close shave he got was very  surprising not only to himself  but to the 'supporters of the  Bowser government. Had  there been but Willson and  Campbell in the race, it is  generally predicted the government candidate would have  met with defeat. W. W. Le-  feaux, the Socialist candidate,  undoubtedly drew part of the  strength which otherwise  woulcl have been with Will-  son. The result of the voting  was: Pampbell, 331; Willson,  322; Lcfcaux, 49.  Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper  "I consider the election today the  most important victory for consti  tutional government ever gained in  British Columbia," said Sir Charles  Tupper in Vancouver last Saturday  night.

Most of the creameries are worked  ou a co-operative basis and operated  by tho government. In order to  improve the standard of ihe output  from tlic.se, the grading of (he cream  was started some years ago. This  was found to work- so effectively in  improving the quality thai many farmers were Heading cream of better  quality than required by the standard  lor the best grade. In order to meet  this situation a higher grade was  added to iho then-existing classification.  The following grading of  now in use, and is giving  satisfaction:  Extra  No.   'I���������Perfectly  sweet  lit for table use.  .

This  cream will lie rejected.  Tlie produce'.' receives monetary  compensation for the extra worjc involved in supplying the highest  grade of cream. This is three cents  more per pound of butter fat for Extra Xo. I than Xo. ], and five cents  above Xo. 2.  In no instance, reports W. A. Wilson, dairy commissioner, has a farmer .-jiipplying "Extra No. 1" cream  ,, withdrawn /his patronage from a co-  operalivc ' cref.mey, while, in some  cases farmers supplying. So. 2 cream  have vithclrawr) their .support, and,  although ilie volume of business declined, tho --na.ily of the butter, because of the absence'of much of the  Xo. 2 cream, showed a decided improvement. Their withdrawal in  most cases was only temporary, since  the price paid for tho better flavored  cream proved a powerful jnagnet and  those who yielded to its influence  have demonstrated that where dol-'  lars "and cents aro the reward for  labor the possibility of tlie production of sweet flavored, clean cream is  seldom questioned. This practice  is the forerunner of profitable markets, which everyone knows means  profitable returns to the dairy farmer.  Grading has proved so satisfactory  in the case of the cream that it has  now been extended to the butter.  Each creamery- is designated by a  letter and each churning by a separate number. Both the creamery let-  ler and the churning number are  stamped on every box of butter packed from a particular churning. A  daily report is made out at the  creamery, -which also shows this information, together with the number  of boxes of butter from that particular churning. On the arrival of the  butter at cold .storage each week it  is an easy matter to sort out and examine a box of butter  churning.

It seems the financiers are'becoming specially restive, not because  they arc less patriotic than the other  classes in Germany, but because they  see more clearly than any prolonged  continuance of the war means, in ihe  words ascribed to a prominent Berlin  banker, '"hideous banicruplcy."  All evidence available seems to  indicate also thr.t Gen. Von Falken-  hayn, chief of tlie general staff,  shares this comparative moderation,  of tone. For the discussion, of the  peace terms the military element, it  is predicted, will adopt a chastened  rather than an arrogant attituiTe.  That' of the German working classes  io ward the war seems to have become  one   of   uncompromising   hostility.  Jlardly a day passes without  some example of this new spirit of  revolt being quoted in the Swiss Socialist newspapers.' The Berne Tag-  wacht and Zurich Volksrcchr, which  are not subject to the German censorship, arc regarded as reflecting German Socialist opinion more accurate-  than the Vorwaerts is able to do.  Tlie Tagwacht prints as the latest  and most startling instances of  popular discontent a description by  one of the participants of a -peace  demonstration which" took place in  Berlin on the evening of the Reich-  stag opening. This account supplements the brief reports hitherto  telegraphed lo,England.  The Tagwacht correspondent says:  Ten thousand men and women tool:  part iu a peace demonstration which  marked the opening of the Reichstag  November 30. A crowd collected toward eight o'clock in the evening in  Unter den Liuden. One, section of the  demonstrators came from the Schloss  (the imperial palace). The crowd  sang outside the opera house, and as  this section passed through the Unter  den Linden in the direction of the  Brandenburger. a squad of police  which had been specially stationed in  the neighborhood rushed out and  drove it back along- the Friederich-  strasse and Charlottenstrasse.  "After they had driven one sec-,  tion ot the demonstrators into the  side streets, the police tried to drive  off those who had congregated in  the Charlottenstrasse and Friederich-  strasse. Mounted police .began the  attack, using their sabres' in many  directions and cutting at the demonstrators.  "Look out, or we will polish you  off!"  cried a  mounted  policeman.  "Our men���������*are., bleeding yonder, so  you can slaughter us*-here,"' replied  a war wife.  "The aim of the police seemed to  be to clear the Wilhelmstrasse,  where the imperial government  buildings and foreign embassies are  situated. Finally under pressure  of the police, the crowd dispersed  north and south. Cries in favor  of a speedy termination of the war  were everywhere heard, and cheers  for Liebknecht were raised. The  demonstration lasted several hours  aud at the close the demonstrators  marched through the city in military  formation amid cries for peace.  "Soldiers took part in the demonstration, and some were arrested.  Many people received sword wounds  in the police charges."  Teuton Reserves Gone  Germany  and   Austria   Forced  to  Call  on Aged and Physically Unfit to  Till   Ranks  The     Uriii.--h   press    reprcserHalivo  with    the J'To.'.cn army declares that  hy the end of August ail of the Jl'lu  contingent in Germany had been called   up,     and   every  man   between   .11)  ?ind -Id    c'-ipal'lo oi. bearing arms, outside   of    thi-tf-j   iu  the  munition  and  other noceriBdiy industries, was under  arms.    T'as remaining, reserves  w.ers  tho     li.i.17   class     and   men   over   -15  years.    To  meet  further losses,  Germany must call its men over 45 years,  and already a secret circular has been  issued instructing authorities to register all men up to 50 years.  In November Austria-Hungary called up all men'from 43 to 50 also, half  of them being sent immediately to  the front. Only the eighteen-year-  old youths remain, and the lime of  putting them into the firing line will  necessarily come early in the spring.  Germany and Austro-Hungary aro  therefore about on a par in respect of  the drainng of their man-power. In  Germany, according to the same army  authority, army doctors have passed  as fit for service men with one eye,  lame men, hunchbacks, and even consumptives. The Russians report the  presence of deaf mutes on the firing  line, and reports from the Anglo-  French front indicate a steadily growing .admixture of old men in the German regiments. Facts like these,  which arc far better known in the  Teuton countries than to tlie allies,  outside of the iron curtain, have led  ono German newspaper to insist that  Germany must make peace now before it is too late. The chancellor is  trying to, do that very thing.���������Toronto  Mail and Empire.

With the war,  the German and Austrian sources  were cut off and tiie prices of drugs  have increased some 50, some 100  and some 1,000 per cent.  Tiie largo proprietary medicine  firms have, as a consequence, had  their profits greatly reduced because  they have refused to increase tiie  prices of their preparations to the  public.  This has naturally caused them to  make an effort to increase business  by taking on new territory. As an  illustration we may refer to the  Dr. Chase Medicine Co., .whose representative, Mr. P. R.

On account cf the crtensive sales  of Dr. Chase's medicines throughout  Canada, and the United States, there  has developed a certain amount of  direct trade in all parts of the world.  The present undertaking is to consolidate this trade and by appointing  agents iu all these places, to establish business throughout these  .countries on a lasting basis.  ��������� As Mr. Gumming is well acquainted with the drug trade throughout the  West Indies and South America,. it  is expected that his trip will meet  with success, and that these medicines will find a further field of usefulness.���������Toronto News'.  else  be  kept  sick cattle *  On the left-nand side of the barn,  there is accomm-lation hi four double  stalls for eight horses, ��������� also four  single stalls, so that 12 horses can be  kept in stalls all the time and in addition there are two large box stalls.

Course of Studies  To Be Revised  Saskatchewan  Government Will    Appoint  Committee  to  Confer  With  Superintendent  (Contributed     by   Norman   F.   Black,  M.A.,  D.Paed.,   Regina)  As a result of the -wide spread interest shown in proposals for the improvement of Saskatchewan schools,  the leading provincial papers have for  months been full of friendly criticisms and practical suggestions. On  one' point there has been general  agreement, namely, that the present  ���������course ot studies for public and high  schools calls, for improvement. It is  felt.by most friends-of education that  the course is overloaded, not so much  by tho inclusion of subjects which  should not be found there as by the  inclusion of a vast amount ot unnecessary and useless details in the various subjects. The work of tho  school, moreover, has not been kept  In close relation with the industries  of the committee, notably agriculture,  and there has been a general demand  for such a revision of the school  course as will remedy those and  other evils. Tn the high schools in  particular if is felt that the pupils  are called upon to study too lna'ny  3ubjects within a given school year.  Consequently the lesson periods are  too'short, the pupils are burdened unduly with home work, and thoroughness is rendered impossible.  The teachers of the province have  rf long recognized these, evils and havo  been the first to suggest definite  means for attempting to remove them.  The provincial board of sub-examiners recently petitioned the minister  of-education requesting that a committee of duly qualified-'and representative teachers be appointed to con-  ���������fer -with the provincial superintendent  of -education on the revision of the  curriculum. They suggested that this  conference 1je held next summer,  ��������� while the board of sub-examiners is  In session, and that the names of the  members of the commitete should be  announced as soon as possible so as  'to "give opportunity for the necessary  preliminary study and deliberation.  On December "fUh Hon. Walter  Scott, minister of education, officially  announced that this request is to be  granted. " y  Details as to how the members of  tne revising committee are to be  selected have hot yet been made public. In many quarters it is thought  that in addition to professional educators specially representing the normal schools, high schools and public  -schools 'both urban and rural, the committee should also include a few competent representatives of outside public opinion. It is possible that tho  nomination of these lay members may  ���������be entrusted to Saskatchewan Public  School League, the provincial citizens' association which was formed  some time ago to arouse, organize  and express public interest in educational matters.  The formation of this committee  will be hailed with general approval  as the first positive step in the new  ���������reform policy which aims at'adapting  the -schools of Saskatchewan to the  special local needs and conditions of  the province they are to serve.  the  loss  Dis-  onc  this  Ravages of Smut Disease is a Serious  Matter  to  the   Farmer  Taking ono year with another  average'farmer suffers a greater  through the ravages of Smut  eases than through any other  pest, and while he may realize  loss,. he, in many cases, seems to  consider it a necessary evil.  II. T.

The loss in oats alone is  roughly equal lo the combined losses  of wheat and barley. In the ��������� United  States it is estimated thac the loss  duo to the smuts of" Avheat alone  amount to over $14,000,000, and when  all the smuts and rusts are considered the losses amount to hundreds of  millions of dollars.  Vast as the direct loss from the  smuts, the indirect losses are also  great. Tho expense of controlling  them is very large besides the harm  they do to live stock.  have been discussions from  time in the press with re-  to tlie probable injuries to  live stock fed on smutted grain or  food. Important text books even now  point out. the'danger of such.practice. It is claimed that smutted  grain causes disturbances of the  digestive organs, loss of flesh, paralysis of the 'hindquarters and the  muscles of the mouth and throat, and  in-some cases death.  "The results obtained, however,  from careful inquiry and experiments  do not confirm this serious arraignment, and wo arc led to believe that,  as is often the case in such investigations, the conclusion is one of conjecture," says H. T. Gusson.  "The animals subjected to  ment were pigs, cows, horses  rabbits, chickens and pigeons. It  must be .realized (hat animals show  frequently, during feeding experiments of any kind, certain indispositions, which may or may not be  the result of-the diet. It appears to  us advisable not to recommend the  feeding of smut-spore-coutaminated  rood, as it cannot be'declared harmless under all circumstances. Pregnant animals, and those naturally  subject to intestinal troubles should  receive no such food."'  As regards oat smut, the following  opinion is given in a Canadian bulletin: "When abundant in a crop  which is cut for green feed, oat smut  may cause irritation and congestion.  A number of fatalities amongst cattle  in Northern Alberta have been attributed to this. In "Montana, a lot  of cows Avere fed on smutty hay, and  within twelve hours after the first  feed, one half of them died, with symptoms of gastritis and cerebral excitement. "No more of the hay was fed,  and no more deaths resulted. A postmortem examination showed the  stomach "much distended."  We find these opinions more or  less unanimous on the point that food  contaminated with smut is at any  rate unwholesome, and, although, the  matter is not definitely cleared up,  we advise farmers not to run any  risk of losing animals by giving them  food of a so decidedly suspicious nature.  j     A marvelous pain  reliever.

Message to Bereaved  Sir   Oliver   Lodge, Says   That   Doing  Their Duty Mitigates Sorrow of  Death  Sir Oliver Lodge has issued a "message to the bereaved," which is published in the Christian Commonwealth.  Sir Oliver's message reads: "The  amount of mourning and suffering  throughout Europe at the present  time is something terrible to contemplate. But it must be remembered  that, from the point of view of the  individuals who have gone over, there  are. many mitigating circumstances.  They have done their duty; they  have sacrificed a useful career here;  they have given up all they possessed,  and it will bo requited to them. By  sucii a death a burden of sin is lightened; some atonement is made; good  friends are waiting for them; their  help can be utilized, and is much  wanted l'or their fellows who are  coming over, and they themselves  will continue in the joy of service.  "They would like their friends here  to recognize that, and not to mourn  them unduly; above all, not to consider them as gone out of existence,  as extinguished and no longer real.  Sorrow at their departure is inevitable, but grief which is excessive  causes them pain."  W.  N.  U.  1037  When Germany precipitated tho  European conllict her preparations  were complete. She was ready "to tlie  last button," Neither Great Britain,  France nor Russia was prepared, or  anything like it, save iu one particular. The British fleet was ready to  the minutest detail. The fleet assumed command of the seas and has retained it ever since. British readiness  in her traditional field of activity accomplished everything that was expected of it, and today tho fleet is  stronger than when on that fateful  ! night of last year it disappeared in  ' the   darkness.���������Victoria   Colonist.  man chancellor, the reports of food-  riots throughout his country, the news  that Hungary is determined to seek a  separate psace if she cannot obtain  it in any otlier way, and last but not  least significant, the postponement of  the new British war loan; these are  all signs that point in tbe same direction.  Germany and her allies want peace.  Their need is growing more urgent  .every day, and the Entente Powers  know it. The only point that delays  the commencement of negotiations is  the fact that the Germanic.nations  are naturally anxious to save their  prestige, and they have an uneasy  and well founded conviction that the  terms likely to be offered by the allies will be humiliating in the extreme.  In the first place the latter will  certainly not consent to consider the  sunject at all until Germany has retired, voluntarily or otherwise, to her  own frontiers. It is probable they  will insist on dictating- their terms in  Berlin'as Napoleon did a century ago.  They will demand the most drastic  rectifications of national boundaries,  and the payment of indemnities  which will cripple the already tottering Germanic.empires for generations  to come. They will in fact so cut the  claws of the wild beast of Europe as  to render her impotent for mischief  for at least half a century.  Peace will come when the enemy is  ready to accept it on that basis..They  may elect to continue tho hopeless  fight, but they will do so with the  knowledge that every day of delay  will '.������������������only make matters worse for  them. The serious point for Germany is that she is not beaten in a  military sense so much as financially  and in the absolute exhaustion of  her resources. Her only course is to  sue for peace. In that connection  there is a strong force of public opinion in all the allied nations that in  the settlement of this mad war justice must come before mercy. The  stakes are altogether too vast lo permit of any false sentiment. Tlie  safety of the world demands that Germany must drink the cup of her humiliation to the very dregs.���������Montreal News.  Germany   Does   Not   Know  its Death  Roll        -,  The   Prussian   authorities" who   direct   the  Kaiser's   war,   do  not  dare  to allow the enormous losses of their  army��������� to reach the German people.  As a matter of fact outsiders know  more of the mortality lists than, do  the  people  of the  Kaiser.  The ten thousandth- page of the  officially acknowledged ���������.German' casualties has reached London, says the  New York World, and it denotes that  Germon losses '.'in the field now. cer-  tainlyare not less than :;',G00,000  killed, wounded and prisoners.  The closely packed pages contain  [an average of 300 names each. Before me He lists 763 to 778. inclusive,  for the first nine days on November,  covering 239 pages. The toll of death  and misery for these nine days is  86,040, or 9,560 a day.  As German military authorities  never publish officer casualities, except non-commissioned, and the lists  are not guaranteed to be complete,  it seems within reasons to estimate  Germany's attrition in the fields of  war 10,000 every twenty-four hours.,  The sheets are twelve and a half  inches long, with three closely crammed, columns to the page. The accumulation, since the war began, if  piled together, would make .many  columns reaching to the ceiling of  an ordinary room.  In all the world's history there  never has been such a record of  dead; and maimed, in anything like  the same period. It would indicate  that the "nibbling"' process on which  Gen. Joffre pinned his faith from  the outset of the war is being carried on pretty consistently, and that  the i the decimation of the German armies  in all the: theatres of war is a problem that must seriously concern the  German government, as the German  male population with military possibilities is not inexhaustible.  The Prussian Guard is never missing from the death roll, whether infantry, uhlans, field artillery, hussars  or machine gun section.  The tremendous losses in the flower of the Kaiser's legions is proof of  the extent to which reliance now  must be placed on the Landstrum  and Landwehr brigades, aud in substitute infantry regiments, which  figure so prominently.  The believers in inevitable triumph  ���������by attrition find in these lists much  ground   for    hope   and  confidence  inks  efficacy  as a  determining factor  of the war.  Although the German lists are published with more or less regularity,  it is a mistake to imagine that, thenars freely circulated in Germany. In  the ...first place, the ^military authority arbitrarily prevented the publication of these lists in the newspapers.  Newspapers are forbidden to publish anything beyond the bald, un-  informing summary of casualty toUs.  Newspapers may anuouuee only that  certain persons, say twenty-live or  thirty persons, well known names in  a particular community are among  the dead, wounded and massing.

The British people on the other  hand are kept fully, acquainted with  the full numerical and moral consequences of their losses. No suc/i  publication would be permitted in  Germany, even if German newspapers thought it desirable. The Englishman who buys a one cent newspaper gets all the casualty lists in  it, but the German who wants lists  must pay three cents for each list.  This arrangements insures a very  limited circulation"- of the German  casualty lists. But the German lists  are displayed in popular restaurants  and coffee houses, where they find  their most numerous readers. In  earlier German lists, -thS time and  place where casualties occurred were  identified. That practice has been  discontinued, so, when one finds, for  instance, whole companies, including  non-coms., wiped out in Infantry Reserve Regiment No. IS. Prussian list  No. 368, or Infantry Reserve Regiment No. TOD, Saxon list No. 217, it  is impossible to know ou what front  they were fighting.  A significant feat-re of the German  lists is the completeness with which  whole companies, mi iy.be ring about  200 each, have been rolled, showing  the frightful result of attacks in mass  formation. No less remarkable is  the frequency with which each company, with fifteen or twenty non-  coins., the backbone ot Germany's infantry units, are lost.  The absence of commissioned officers' names from the lists, as only  at rare intervals is the loss of a  lieutenant or staff officer announced,  means that German officers either,  as a part of the military policy, do  not risk their lives, or Unit their  losses arc more numerous than Germany cares to acknowledge, which  is the more likely expla.nar.ion.  Lists arc made up of losses of the  Prussian, Bavarian, Saxon and AVur-  temberg armies, and tlie Imperial  Navy. Prussian lasses are, of course,  overwhelmingly preponderant, which  naturally follows, from the greater  population. Every arm of the united  service, and ail units of each arm,  are constantly represented in the  death roll.

FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 191(5  After studying last Saturday's election returns from every possible angle, .we can draw  but one satisfactory conclusion: The electors  were determined to smash the machine, and  they smashed it.  Leader IT. C. Brewster*should prove an easy  winner in Victoria tomorrow. Bets have been  made in this city that he will have a majority  of 1000.  Tomorrow night Hon. A. C. Flumerfelt will  know all about the sensation Mr. Tisdall experienced in Vancouver last Saturday night.  Titles have been bestowed upon political  "machinists" in Canada long enough. IT in  future his majesty lias any honors to distribute among this profession, let them go,  we humbly pray, to the real machinists���������to  those at the Granby smelter, for instance.  They as much entitled to them as the "machinists" at the federal and provincial capitals.  In Phoenix a few years there was a newspaper man who sent out his paper in his home  town filled with Liberal literature, while those  mailed to another town advocated the election  of the Tory candidates. This man will doubtless have many imitators in the forthcoming  general elections,-in view of the result of the  by-elections last Saturday.

Parker Williams last evening gave the name,  place and circumstances of a vote in the legislature in which the entire forty members of  the government, from Sir'Richard McBride  down, did not know what they voted for. It  was a resolution proposed by Mr. Williams  and was passed to the speaker without being  read by ifs mover. The speaker perused it  and declared it out of order. Mr. Williams  appealed from the speakers ruling to the  house. The speaker put the question, that is  whether his ruling should be sustained, without even reading the resolution on which that  ruling had been given. Not a solitary member, on the government side knew what it was  about, but every one of them voted to sustain  A good habit ip a trnety friend in the Christian life.

Insect Pests in Canada  In the report of the Dominion entomologist for the year ending  March 31, 1914,which has just been  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 Canada, .and all who are interested in  this subject will be. repaid by a perusal 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 administration of the insects and pests  regulations of the destructive insect  a id 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, particularly 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 biniidKS covered by the re  port are investigations on insects affecting cereals and other field crops,  including an account of the notori  ou's army worm .outbreak of 1918;  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 garden and greenhouses. The report  is a record of marked progress in a  branch of the department of agri  culture which not only affects agri  culture, but also forestry and public  health. Copies of this report ma^  . be had free on application to the  publications branch, department of  agriculture, Ottawa, and requests  for tlie report may be mailed free.  All inquiri'js regarding insect pests  should be addressed to the Domin  ion entomologist, department of  agriculture, Ottawa, and no postage  is required on such letters-  The twenty sixth annual meeting  of the British .Columbia Fruit Grow  ers' association will be held in the  Empress hotel, Victoria, on March  6 and 7, when many matters of  vital importance to the industry will  he discussed by the deleg^t������-s from  all the fruit growing sections of the  province.

'   What Brought Her Back  A husband wasxeoently very sad  because his wife had gone on a visit  which she would not shorten in  spite of his appeals to- come   home.  Finally he hit upon a plan to induce her to return. He sent her a  copy of each of the local papers with  one item clipped out, and when she  wrote to find out what it was he bad  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.  What He Is Now  The recruiting sergeant with a  shrewd sense of humor has been  everywhere. These men have oftentimes heeded all their wits. Said  one such to a promising recruit:  "Why dou't you join the army?  You would adorn the king's uniform: It's a fine profession, is the  army, and promotion for all who ask  for it! Look at the number of lieu  tenants! And.there is Lord Kitchener, a field marshal, and at the  head of the war office. Why, Lord  Kitchener was only your age once,  and see what he is now!"  What He Thought  One dark night three friends were  crossing a deep, dry ravine, the  banks of which were very precipi  tous. As the party had boen im  bibing a little too freely, one of the  three had to be assisted up the incline. When, thinking him safe at  the top, his friends turned him loose,  he' feel to the bottom He lay very  still, and the other two, supposing  him severely injured, rushed   down  Yale  Barber Shop  Razor Honing a Specialty  to...him.

Basing the' population of Manitoba at  450,000, and of Winnipeg at 200,000,  this province's share of the external  1915 trade would be'$61,650,000, while'  Winnipeg's share would be $27,���������100,-  000. ,.:.,,/,-; :,������������������  The three prairie provinces' share ]~JV  would proportionately < amount to  about $180,000,000 in"actual'per capita, but in exports these provinces  will this year, and in- the beginning  of 1016, contribute a much larger proportion to the exports than will the  other provinces.        ;'  .

One report which Lord Bryce  quotes states that in a certain town  chief Armenians were imprisoned  and then taken by night in wagons  to the river bank and there killed.

Many mothers who  are on the go from morning to night,  whose   work,   apparently,     is    never  done,   try to disguise their sufferings  and keep up an appearance of cheerfulness   before    their    family.

Any inventory of the forests of Erit-  is.li; Columbia  has    been  commenced  in. order to fu:d..oiVt how .much timber  could.be cut each year"without injuring  the   forests.     The     investigation  showed   that  the  province  contained  100,000,000 acres  of  forest land,' arid  about 400 billion feet of merchantable  timber.     The   forests,   moreover,   are  producing annually about  five billion  feet of new timber.    Since at present  only a-billion and a half feet are cut  each year, it is evident that the harvest can safely be  increased several  times over: that, in fact, an immense  amount of timber is annually going to  waste.   It is exactly as if the farmers  on  the prairies  could  find a  market  for only a third of their wheat crop. '  A knowledge of these facts showed  the British Columbia government that  it must obtain markets  for its  complete wood crop.  "After studying the  timber markets of the world, the.government  is  now  taking  steps  to  increase its trade with the United Kingdom, Australia    and    New    Zealand,  South   Africa   and     other     countries  which have not enough timber of their  own.   The prairie provinces, however,  are the largest market for British Columbia   forest   products.   The   British  Columbia government is now seeking  to develop this market to the full. To  give   the   best  possible   -service     to  prairie farmers, who    are among the  largest consumers of B.C. lumber/the  government has prepared, in co-operation -with the "University of\ Saskatchewan,   a   series, of  bulletins   on   farm  buildings,    similar means  are  being-  adopted   in  Eastern     Canada.  Avhere  there is a good market for heavy timbers" ---and high grade lumber products  from B.C.   By establishing a commercial1 service in*-every .market by systematic   publicity   work,   British   Columbia will secure markets for its.full  wood crop, and.thus put its vast forest  operations  on  as  stable  a  basis  as  the grain  growing    industries  on  which the prairie provinces depend.

Determined  Attack Will  Likely  Soon  be   Made   bv   British  Troops  on  the  Only   Foreign Possession of Germany������������������  ,  Would be a Valuable Asset to British Empire  Tlie official announcement of General Smitii-Dorrion's new command in  East Africa, combined with various  reports tending to corroborate the belief that an attack on Egypt and the  Suez ��������� Canal will bo the next blow  .which the German headquarters staff  will seek to deliver, receives serious  consideration.  The immense strategical possibilities of the world war furnishes a fascinating study. Sir Horace Smith-  Dorricn'S appointment suggests, in  the words of the Westminster Gazette, that "the operations in East  Africa arc destined to take a more  important character than they have  hitherto had."  With the operations in the Kame-  rur. practically ��������� completed, German  East Africa is the only remaining  German colony to be subdued, ana  its possession will be a valuable asset to the Britsh empire, and especially to India. ' Germany is .understood to possess a force of about  7,000 whites at her disposal there,  and he has not hesitated to arm  - large numbers of the native population  which  totals  10,000,000.  The British forces in East, Africa  in the early stages of -the war consisted of only two battalions of the  King's African Bifi.es (native  troops), some 3,000 "native police in  British East Africa and Uganda,  and some small white levies. These  reinforced    later    by    Indian  were  troops.  The    German  have  come   into  and British forces  contact on various  occasions, the two most important  results being the failure of a British attack on the German post ot  Tanga, and the British capture .of  Bukoba, the chief German base on  Lake Victoria Nyanza.  -..���������'���������'.��������� Nothing in the nature of an attack to conquer German East Africa,  which is officially one and a half  times the size of Germany, has hith  erto been attempted, but the appointment of a general of the tame "of Sir  ITorace Smith .Ourrien, leads to tne  expectations iliai. a coup of this kind  is now in preparation. Some criticism of the wan is heard chieily on tlie  ground thaF it is'a "policy of small  packets" and that such fozves as will  be placed at General Smith-Dorrieu's  disposal could easily be employed  elsewhere.  Egypt is the particular place the j undecided to  critics have in view. Th? British  garrison in that country has been  greatly increased, and it is believed is adequate- to repel German-Turkish attacks. Some authorities hold  ���������that the characteristic British habit  of disposing the enemy may once  again be unduly influencing the government's couns-ls.  Reports   from   Syria    of    Turkish  preparations are regarded ss serious  and  travellers from Syria    speak of  strong    concentrations    of    Turkish  troops at Jerusalem   and Jaffa.    The  German   general,    Trus.semar,    is in \  command of aii army of 70,000. men j  at Ghaza, and  Gen.  Von Mackcnzen, ;  according  to   the     report,   will ��������� .have I  supreme command of the army of ii.-'  vasion of Egypt.  The reported decision of the Dutch  shipping companies trading to the  East Indies to abandon the Suez  Canal route is in some o.uarters  considered due rather to German  warnings than to the reason alleged���������the difficulty of coaling.   .  An interesting commentary on the  present situation in regard to both  German East Africa and Egypt is  the report that France at an early-  period of the war offered to place  at England's disposal for the conquest of German East Africa,- a  strong expeditionary force then stationed, at Madagascar, but the offer  was .declined on the .ground .that  Great Britain, was not then ready to  undertake   such   an 'expedition..'."

The Greeks arc probably the worst j  offenders a't least    in respect of the j  extent of their claims.

Following the last two Balkan wars,  [Greece had increased her population,  J by territorial acquisitions, over 5u  j per cent. It is doubtful if even the  ; Greeks quite realized what this in-  | crease would mean in the shape of in-  j creased number of troops mobilized.  i in a few weks���������almost in a few days  '��������� the population of Saloniki had been  j first 160,000, then 360,000, suddenly  ' became 700,000.

The attention of the single-crop farmer has  been directed to the need of ��������� diversification ������and the introduction of live  stock as essential to a sound agricultural economy.  .'._������������������  Among the most promising agencies  for Increasing the meat supply are the  pig clubs.    These now have a mem-  ��������� bership of about 0,000 boys and girls,  and over '2,000 registered hogs are  owned by the members. Poultry  clubs also have received much attention, the membership now being approximately 4,000. The report continues:  "Last year the ease with which the  meat supply can be increased materially by controlling or eliminating the  common live stock diseases was pointed out. The direct losses from them  are enormous. It is impossible to  give any accurate statement even of  direct losses. The indirect losses,  which also are great cannot be estimated at all. It has been conservatively estimated, on the basis of data  for thirty years, that the annual direct losses from animal diseases are  approximately   $212,000,000."  The potash situatiou, the report  states, continues very serious. There  , is practically none available for fertilizer use, and present indications are  that the supply for this purpose will  not be increased materially during  the coming year. Tho various obstacles to the commercial development of the four known domestic  sources are pointed out. These  sources are: The giant help of- the  ��������� Pacific coast, 'the alunite deposits  mainly in the mountains of Utah,  tho feldspathic rock of tho eastern  part of the United States, and the  mud of .Searles Lake in California.

In this connection, the report says un part:  "The wheat crop of S'JI.000,000  bushels established the nation's record and was 12S.000.000 bushels larger than that of any other year. The  corn crop of 2,67*3,000 bushels, while  it was only an average one, exceeded  that of 1!H3 by 220,000,000 bushels.  The oat crop of 1,HI,000,000 bushels  was the third largest on record.

When the tricolor  was first authorized in 1792, the positions and proportions of the three  colors were not stated, and such a  variety of flags was seen that two  years later the National Assembly declared that the national standard  should be formed of "the three national colors, in equal bands plr ?"  vertically, the hoist being blue,'the  middle white and the fly red."  For years the flag was made in (his  way, but though the bands were equal  they never looked equal owing to an  optical illusion, the blue appearing  wider than the red.  At. last, after-many experiments,  was   officially  decided  that  in   every  hundred   parts     the   blue   should   be  port itself are in different countries  Here, however, instead of simply having one other country as hinterland,  as Rotterdam or Germany, Saloniki  has two: Serbia and Bulgaria.
