Donaldsoni  McCallum, Schnitter and Sheads  were present at the regular meeting  of the city council on Monday evening.  On motion of Aid. Sheads and  McCallum, the council decided to  become a member of the Union  of  - British Columbia Municipalities.  ���������'.'���������_ A letter from Col. A. T. Ogilvie,  of Victoria, replying to a request  from the Grand Forks Ministerial  association, sta(ed that he had no  authority from Ottawa to [dace military guards on private property.  Filed.  The agreement drafted by the city  cierk, between the city and Allen &  Norris tor supplying the corporation  with lumber in carload lots, was  ordered to be signed.  On  invitation  of  the  water and  light committee,  E.  E.  Gibson, of  the South Kootenay Power & Light  company,was present and explained  the efficiency of lightning  arresters,  ' the council at present having under  consideration the advisability of installing one of these devices in   this  "city." Mr.- Gibson   stated .that one  arrester, placed in a central location,  would  answer   for  the  entire city  lighting system.    He said that   the  device    was   undoubtedly   efficient,  reducing   the  danger of  damage to  the system from lightning to a minimum, besides affording  a   protection to the   transformers.    The cost  of   upkeep   after   installation   was  practically nil.   The matter  was referred to the water and   light committee, with instructions to obtain  further data from cities where these  devices are in use and to  report at  tb e next meeting.  The past month's accumulation  of accounts were ordered to be paid.  The chairman ot the water and  light committee recommended that  the charges for thawing out water  pipes be cut in two Left in the  hands of the woter and light committee, with instructions to make a  detailed report at the next meeting.  The chairman of'the water and  light committee reported that it  would be impossible to secure the  4-inch pipe for the extension of the  Water street main until next fall.  Tenders for electric light poles  were received as fotlows: J. W. Orr,  Cascade, 8230; J. C. Siddon, Grand  Forks, $238 50. Mr. Siddon agreed  to lay the poles down anywhere in  the city, and to fact was considered  to more than offset the amount his  tender was higher than his competitor's, and on motion of Aid. Sheads  the contract was awarded to him.  The chairman  of the  board  of  works reported that the pier for the  footbridge  at   the  Granby smelter j  and the fill below Dr. Averill's  resi  held last week and printed in our  last i6sue.  On motion of Aid. Sheads and  Donaldson, a rebate of 50 per cent  will be allowed'on all dog taxes jf  they are paid promptly.  The,clerk was instructed to notify  the owner of the pasture at the corner of Winnipeg avenue - and , Donald street to remove, the barb-w.ire.  fence.  S  CUTOFF JUNE 4  Editor Grand *Forks Sun  As parents and pupils have not  very clear ideas of the .putpose of  the school garden, now being cultivated, I request a little space in your  valued paper as a means of inform  ing them.  In the first place, only half of the  plot now being cultivated at the  public school will be for children's  use; on the other half a commercial  crop, will-be.grown and the product  sold for charitable purposes. A  fence will surround the whole area,  and the children's plots will be separated by paths.  As to the aim: It is not primarily  to grow grain, vegetables or \flowers.  The purpose is higher. It is to furnish incentives ^ and to provide a  field for work that will be rich edu-  cationally in re creative.instructional  and character-forming experiences.  To be more definite, I might state  that the aims are:  To stimulate interest in rural life;  To prjvide healthful exercise for  body and mind, and to afford to the  pupil   an opportunity to direct   his  activities along useful Hues;  To develop at an early age habits'  of industry, respect for labor, and a  love for productive and constructive  work;  To impart useful information on  agricultural subjects;  To give facility in the handling  of-tools-and in the practice of gar  den craft;  To promote the desire to improve  home surroundings and, to train  boys and girls to do so with efficiency;  To promote the qualities that  make for good citizenship, such as  responsibility of ownership, respect  for public property, consideration  for the rights of others, and the  principle of co-operation in seeking  the common good;  To encourage careful observation  and investigation in this and all  other branches of Ptudy*r  To bring the pupil to understand  more clearly his environment and to  appreciate more fully the beautiful  in nature.  Such is the scope and mission of  the school garden; and though it is  an innovation in this province, yet  it is considered so important that  the department of education gives  both encouragement and financial  assistance to the scheme.    With the  . Grant Hall, of Winnipeg, general  of the western lines of the Canadian  Pacific Railway company, and F.  W. Peters, general superintendenr of  British Columbia lines, are visiting  Boundary and Kootenay points this  -week.. On completing their business in this disrrict they will go on  t othe coast over the Kettle Valley  line.  Mr. Hall "states that a standard  "train will be run daily over the Kettle. Valley route between Nelsou and  the coast by way of the Hope cutoff  beginning on June 4. The opening  of the Hope eutoff, he says, will re-  ouce the running time between  Nelson and the coast to about 27  hours, thereby providing a speedy  and direct route to and from the in  terior. It is the purpose of the Kettle Valley Line company to place  the road on a par with the main line  of the system in the matter-of rolling stock and equipment by placing  the regulation standard cars,on all  the trains operating on this section  between this city and the coast.  The beans are ground into meal  feeding cattle.  Iri the United States the beans are  fed to stallions instead of the ordinary horse bean.  For the extraction of oil and man  uf act lire of oilcake.  In China the bean cake is used as  a fertilizer, in sugar plantations and  in rice fields.  In, Japan the cake is used as  manure in wheat and various  other  There is a little bean, sometimes  green, sometimes black, but mostly  yellow, more or less unknown to the  general public in this counlry.which  Germany badly wants, but can't get.  The Soya bean is its name, and it  is one of the most wonderful productions of the soil we have. It can  be���������and is���������used in manufacturing  dozens, of things, dynamite and high  explosives being among them.  Before the war Germany was so  anxious to have soya heaos that the  import duty was specially taken off  them; now, thanks to the British  navy, she can only get the beans by  smuggling them in small quantities  through neutral countries.  Soya beans come from Manchuria  chiefly; one-quarter of the cultivated  ground there is occupied by the  plants, which stand from one and a  half to four feet iu height and bear  pods of about two inches in length,  coutaining two to five seeds.  In all, there are 300 different varieties of soya beans, and how wonderful the bean is can be seen from  the following uses to which it can  be put:  crops,   even   for   cabbages  planted  with the seed.  In Manchuria and Japan it is food  for cattle, horses, mules and hogs.  - But it is the oil of ihe soya bean  which gives it its greatest value.  The oil is used in the manufacture of:  Glycerine for making dynamite  and high explosives; soaps, linoleum, indiarubber substitute, margarine,- paints and varnishes iu place  of linseed oil, edible goods atid toilet  powder, waterproof cloth, paper umbrellas and lanterns, salad oil, lubri-  cating oil���������in China, for greasing  axles and native machinery���������lamp  oil instead of kerosene oil (it is used  on English railways for burning).  The soya oil is also used for preserving sardines, and in the place of lard  and cottonseed oil for cooking.  Soya beans come second on the  Ifst of Ghina's exports, about 88,-  000,000 worth of them being exported from China in a year.  1. BREWSTER'S  SPLENDID SPEECH  New Club Organized  At the Presbyterian church a club-  has been organized known as the  Knox Literary and Social club, with  the following as officers: President,  G M. Hutton; vice-president, J. A.  Hutton; secretary, Miss C. Munro;  program committee, G- M. Lee, convener; social committee, J. A. Hut-1  ton, convener.  The first meeting of the club will  be held in the manse Wednesday  evening, March 22, at 8 p m., to  which all members and adherents of  the church are cordially invited.  New Liberal Association  J. E Thompson, Liberal candidate, and the officers of the Grand  Forks Liberal association went down  to Cascade on Wednesday night and  assisted In the organization of a robust Liberal association. About  fifty people from Cascade and surrounding country were present at  the meeting, and the greatest enthusiasm prevailed during the evening. There is abundant of intelligent material in Cascade for a good,  live Liberal association.

C Brewster, leader of  the  op-   .  position at Victoria, made a splendid speech in the  bouse this week.  From it we quote the following sen  tences:  It is the duty of the premier, after  the mandate given in the three by-  elections, to have enacted what non-  contentious legislation is necessary,  secure a moderate supply and then  go to the country for its decision as  to whether the people want this administration longer to remain in  power.  What is wanted now is not petty  politics; what is wanted is not too  much party politics; but that we  should get down to the solid business before the country and, by wise  legislation, raise British Columbia  into the foremost rank as a producing province.  We insist that the province should  know the attitude of the premier in  regard to the conduct of public affairs and to the legislation he intends to lay before the house. The  people, have said they will have  none of his policies. The emphatic  disapproval of one-half the electorate should force the premier to a  statement of his position on the  floor of the house.  If the shipbuilding indusrry is  not good enough for the people interested in the lumber industry to  get behind with their money it is  not good enough for the people of  this province to back.  If you undertake to build ships  politically, as you undertook to  build railways politically, British  Columbia will be in a worse condition than it is today���������and that is .  bad enough. ,...-.-"  Before one dollar further is placed ***���������'"-  behind the Pacific Great Eastern or  any other railway we must have an  impartial investigation and find out  where the money already given has  gone. It is the right of the people  to know that, and if any of it has  oeen wrongfully expended I demand  that the premier take evt-ry step  known to legal resource to secure its  restoration. Until that is done I lor  one shall refuse to put good money  after bad.  S  J. R. Mooyboer has finished  building a very nice bicycle hospital adjoining his blacksmith shop.  He has also installed a new Champion electric drill press in his  shop.

Anstie, of  Revelstoke, managing  director,   operations will be resumed   this   week  at the Cascade lumber  mill   at  Cascade, -vhicb is owned by the Forest  Mills, Limited.    It is expected that  employment   will   be   provided for  about eighty men when the plant is  in full operation.    It is also  under  stood  that   plans  have been completed that will allow  the  plant  to  be operated   throughout  the  entire  summer.  Mr. Anstie inspected the com  pany's mill at Cascade last Saturday.  Wm. Dinsmore is still confined to  the Grand Forks hospital by illness.

THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS FEB PLUG  The Live Stock  hands  ���������' Mora If  every spring.���������Montreal Family  and Farm CrOpSjMoneyandMen Must Win  Adjusting the Crop'to the Amount of  Live Stock Kept on the Farm  A proper relation between the  amount of live stock'kept on the farm  and the number of acres 01' crops  grown should always be maintained.  Our first aim as farmers must be to  a row crops at Jess cost than they  will sell on the market, and then  wo should feed them on the farm sc  :is' to realize two profits.  The farmer who raises most of his  own feed is in a much better position to feed hogs, cattle or any othci  class of stock, than the man who has  to purchase all his feed. The farmer  who grows all his own feed may not  get any more than, market prices for  tho grain or other produce consumed  by the stock, and may still have a  fair profit through selling his produce at market prices in the form  of the finished product; hut the man  who buys ��������� Ills feed can have for pro-  lit only what he obtains in excess  of the market value of the feeds consumed by the stock., Thus the farmer who grows his feed has two sources  of profit,--namely, the--grower's profit,  or the profit obtained by selling his  produce at market price;'." together  with the feeder's profit, or; what he  obtains for his produce in excess of  market price by selling it in the form  of porlc, beef, mutton, milk, eo. The  man who has to buy all the produce  which he feeds his stock can have  only the feeder's profit, and under unfavorable conditions this profit may  be so small that it will scarcely pay  for the labor involved.  The farmer in planning out his  work for next season must do a little  reasoning. He may find that he needs  ���������100 bushels of oats, but with his  system of farming he may have a  field that will yield the/necessary  oats which will be worth $160. On  the other hand, this same field if  planted to potatoes will yield 1,200  bushels which will sell for ������700. Jf  ho had the extra time necessary "to  jirow this crop.he would figure then  that it would pay him to grow the  potatoes, and buy the $160 worth of  grain, which, would establish the correct relation.  The problem of regulating the  number of animals kept on the farm  to the amount of food crops produced,  is less difficult where a regular ^system of crop growing is practiced and  one has plenty of silo room to insure  iigainst drouth and a partial ��������� failure  of the hay crop. Of course, there  may come years when the supply of  roughage may be somewhat reduced  is a good time to dispose  of  the    less  profitable  ani-  Marconi  of  but  then  of  some  mals.  On the  that  the  is   regulated  the   amount  well managed farm we find  amount  of  live' stock   kept  to  a. certain  extent  by  of   available  hand. For example., on  farm two men can handle from 24  to I'S cows and raise the necessary  food crops with very little extra day  help. Some ambitious farmer might  think, it more profitable1 to hire a  third man and milk six or eight more  cows. If this necessitated keeping  another team during the year and  buying new' equipment it is doubtful  .if it would pay. On the other hand,  if he figured on employing the additional labor by growing a cash crop  such as potatoes, beans or cabbage,  it might pay. large returns. It" costs  considerable to feed an extra team  and pay a hired man a year and unless one can see a substantial addition to his annual income he had  better not take on the additional  business, idle horses and men will  soon ruin any farmer.  On  the  diversified   farm  the  number of young cattle, sheep and swine  kept    should     be   regulated   by   the  amount   of  rough   feed    and   by-products that are available.   By this we  do not mean that these animals are  not  capable of making a profit,  but  rather     that     their     chief    function  should   be  to   convert   waste     feeds,  pasture grass and roughage into dollars and     fertility.    They    not     only  turn  these feeds into profit but. they  furnish   profitable     employment'   for  the hired men every day in the year.  On the farm  where  there is a  proper    correlation    between    the crops  ,'iiid    live stock    tho    labor is evenly  distributed, ovr    the  year so  as   lo  ' greatly economize the    acreage    cost  of tillage operation-! and the expense I  of   caring   for   the'livo   stock.

Whilo Germany seemed ready to  make peace now, ha said, the allies  were bound to ignore any such overture, for the reason that Germany was  not inclined to agree to any terms  that would be acceptable.   , '���������  "The plain fact," he said, "is that  Germany, or a majority of the Geiv  man people, are tired of the slaughter'  of men, weary of the struggle that  seems to have no end in sight. While  that is the prevailing feeling in German}', it will shift to one of bitter revolt to see the war on when all of  Germany realizes that the allies are  intent on beating Germany and that  the allies will not accept any half-way  peace terms.  "The hulk of Germany's population  believes that Germany has accomplished enough to ei.able her to dictate terms advantageous , to herself.  They will all pull together for German victory, even harder than ever,  when the grim determination of the  allies dawns on their minds.  "So tho war will have to go on, and  I fail to see any prospect of the.end  of it by next winter. From observations I have made everywhere, 1 am  sure he conflict will be carried on,  regrettable at it is, beyond next  Christmas. Ultimately the side stronger in men and finances must win, and  that is the allies.  "Germany cannot go on indefinitely  Avith the terrific strain on her financial resources, while everyone knows  tliat the drain upon her men is terrible. Britain has money "to finance  the war, and upon her the financial  pressure must come hardest of all the  allies. Russia, France and Italy hay.e'  men, while Britain is throwing her  own into the field, too. As the  months go by this bulk of men and  money is bound to Avin the war for  the allies, but it is going to, be, an awful drain on all, the nations before  victory comes.  ''The year drawing to a close has  been a bitterly disappointing.one for  the allies.    Germany has made great  headway,    anl though not entirely in  the direction    she wanted to go.    But  she   lias   got   Poland,   and   she   still  holds Belgium, while Serbia is crushed.   If Germany could make peace today I believe she would be willing' to  give up Belgium, but she would insist  upon holding part, if not all of Poland,  and   upon  getting   back.    Alsace-Lor-  . raine   from   France  and    her    South  1'T-bor    at j African colonies from England. Such  Lie   dairy I a smy peace never would be accepted  by the allies.  "To make victory sure the quadruple Alliance must jnove in precise  accord until the end, each making a  heroic sacrifice of men and financial  sinews. Political upsets only retard  the concerted action so supremely j  necessary. There must be no more  mistake of diplomacy. j  "Italy is throwing all her energy into the war. Already she has three  million men in arms. She will hold  Albania and help Saloniki if need be.  But I donT. think Italian aid is needed  for Saloniki, for the British and  French seem capable of holding their  own. I don't believe the Germans will  get into Greece.  "Difficult times are headed in the  western theatre of war next spring  and summer, wLh the Germans trying  to push through the allied lines in  France. but the allies undoubtedly  will  be   able  successfully    to    resist  Too Much Preventable Blindness  The Journal of the American Medical Association says that there are  about :!00,000 blind people in the  United States. It costs about ?15,000,-  000 a year to .--upport them. Probably 75 per cent, of this blindness  is. due to two causes, namely, sore  eyes at birlh.'and neglected eyes during  early  school  life.

Tunnel   Under the  Mediterranean  One  of the  Links in the Steel Chain  In an address before the Royal Geographical  Socicry,   Sir   Charles    Met-  jcalr'e, an eminent engineer, described  {as a possibility of the not far distant  : future a trip by rail from London lo  'Cape Town.    Sir Charles pointed out  thai when one or two lines now under  | construction are completed, and a new  00 mile line is built, communication  by   rail   or  steamer   will  be   effected  rom   Cape  Town   to  Alexandria   and  Port Said. A short connection between  Port Said and  Jerusalem   would  link  up Asia .Minor.  it was almost certain, he said, that  a. railway would.' be made from Stanleyville to Lake Chad, and - French  surveys to Lake Chad from Algeria  had already been made .(across the  Sahara). With "a tunnel from "Ceuta  to the Spanish coast, this would give  an  overland connection  with Europe.  Sir Charles did not ' mention the  subject of a channel tunnel, but if a  tunnel from Ceuta under the much  greater distance of the .Mediterranean  be possible, as he foreshadowed, it"requires only a little reasonable imagination to link up Charing Cross and  Cape Town. Then iu the piping  times of peace passengers may jump  on the Cape Town through express at  the London terminus and roach their  destination with*perhaps one stop at  Lake Tanganyika for rest and refreshment and to admire the view.

After the very definite, almost emphatic statement of the prime minister, at St. John, N.B., on October 20  no further money should be diverted  from the Patriotic1 Fund by weil meaning but rather thoughtless people who  claim that the equipment of Canadian  forces is insufl'cient. Sir Robert has  made it very plain that the government is fully prepared to make every  necessary provision for guns, munitions and he appeals to the gen'ei'os-  ily of1 the public only on behalf of the  Canadian, Patriotic Fund, (he Red  Cross Society and sister associations.  We' quote below an extract from the  speech in question:  "Regarding machine, guns, we realized early in the war the necessity of  an abundant supply, and orders have  been  given  from time to  time for a  very   large   number.     Those   ordered  during the first twelve months of the  war are now being' rapidly delivered, '  and. they are more than sufficient to  equip two fully army corps up to the  highest    standard    of-   the    enemy's  forces.    During the past summer the  provision of machine guns  became a  matter of vital interest to the Canadian     people, as reports  through  the  press  emphasized  the  necessity  that  our forces should be adequately supplied wicli all the machine guns that  could   be   utilized.    Patriotic  individuals offered to contribute large sums  for this distinctive purpose.' The gov---  eminent  of Ontario  made  a  similar  patriotic proposal, and throughout the  country   various   communities   generously subscribed to funds for this oh-.  ject.     During   my   absence   in   Great  Britain  my colleagues  endeavored  to  make it clear to the people that an  ample   supply  of  machine   guns   had  been ordered and that these would be  paid  out of the    Canadian    treasury.  The treasury of Canada ought properly*, to  bear all the cost of equipping  and   maintaining   our   forces     in   the  field,  and   that,  has  been  our  policy.  ���������Nevertheless, the spirit and  impulse  which prompted our people could nor.  bs stayed, and, indeed, any attempt to  stay  if   would   have- been   misunderstood.    Up to date the sums thus received by the government amount to  .?.773,::27.!)5.  .... "In dealing' with other needs which  will certainly arise, the government  will not fail to remember that these  generous and free-will contributions  have been made. And in all your  splendid generosity, do not forget the  Patriotic Fund and the Canadian Red  Cross Society They have done a  great work, but. they have a still  greater work to do. Appeals which assuredly will not fall on deaf ears  must be made in the early future. See  that the response is generous and  ample. When you are making provision for the Canadian Patriotic  Fund, the Canadian Red Cross Society, the Canadian War Contingent  association and other like patriotic  organizations, you may be assured  that the government will not fail to  make>-every necessary provision for  guns,   munitions   and' equipments."

"I had the honor to represent the  French navy at the conference," said  Admiral Lccaze. "and remember the  dramatic sitting during" which Karon  JVIarschaa'i. von Bieberstcin, Germany's chief delegate, regarding as  an insult something one French delegate said concerning humane sentiments of German officers, bounded  from his chair as if outraged, and  stood before us protesting in the  angriest, of terms against any such rc-  llcction.  "I hear those words still, spoken before the representatives of 41 countries," continued the admiral, "and  say to myself that it is well for you  Bieberstein to be dead before suffering the pain of seeing men whom he  had placed so high in public opinion  committing a most abominable act, an  act premeditated, cold-blooded,  against women and children.

Sufferers from    any form of rheumatism should keep their general health  up to the (highest standard by the use  of a blood building tonic like Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,    while taking good,  nourishing    food,    without too much  meat.

Warned by sthe Birds  Shrill Cries Foretold Attack With  Poison  Gas  How the life of wild birds is affected by the war in Europe is the-subject of some interesting stories told in  Bird IsToles and News, the quarterly  journal of the Royal Society for the  Protection ot Birds.  In many cases, both on land and  sea, birds have been of direct help  to the Allies.  At sea our sailors have .found gulls  ot considerable service, their presence  over the water often helping them to  sight  the   periscopes   of  submarines.  In Flanders the shrill cries of the  birds and their excited behavior have  warned our soldiers against a coming  poisoned gas attack.  "Before the smell of the fumes can  be perceived in. the trenches the soldiers are awakened to their danger  by the noise of the birds who have  detected the first fumes of the vile  infection,"  says the journal.

Martin Burrill has issued a letter to the Canadian farmers  thanking them for the response to  .the appeal for increased production  last year and asking them to continue  the work of supplying the "Life blood  of the Armies in thclield.".He strongly suggested increased live stock production.  Russian   Used   Austrian  to   Demonstrate   With  A certain Austrian general operating in Galicia decided he would attempt to explode tlte fiction of Cossack invincibility. To litis end, he  issued most positive orders that, at  all costs, a Cossack was to be taken  prisoner and brought to him uninjured. The task he thus set his men  was not an..easy one, but, somehow  or other, it was duly accomplished.  A genuine, live Cossack was one day,  produced in his presence.  The general, who was on' horseback at the time, told his men to  give their prisoner freedom of action,  and then, without dismounting,  watched him appease his hunger and  thirst.  "Vou see." the general said, in effect, to his soldiers, "a'Cossack eats  and drinks just as you or 1 do. There  is nothing .superhuman about him."  Next, the prisoner was ordered to  walk about and talk. The general  was determined his troops should  have a thorough object iesson and  judge with their own eyes that a  Cossack was really a man like themselves. Finally, a sword was put into  the prisoner's hands, and ho was told  to show his audience how he used  it.  Th Cossack appeared to enter  thoroughly into the spirit of the  tiling, and gave quite an interesting  display. Everybody was highly entertained.  Meanwhile, the swordsman had  rapidly evolved a scheme of his own.  After a time, he manoeuvred in  such a manner as lo get behind the,  genc-KiI and suddenly leaped upon  the horse, seized the general round  the waist, gripped the horse's Hanks  firmly between his knees and, in ti  lh\sh", was off like the wind, with  the general seated in front of him.  The general was too stupilicd to  utter a sound. As for tlte soldiers,  their first momentary impression  was that this was part of the performance. By the time they had  recovered their presence of mind, it  was too late to do anything; tlte  Cossack had hold of tho reins, ar.ci  there was no. stopping him.  To use their rifles was obviously  out of the question, as they would  have risked killing their own general.  The groups of men encountered  might' have checked the animal's  course, but none of them had seen  the beginning of the affair, and they  were unable to make head or tail of  the strangely assorted couple. They  simply, stood aside and gave the  living", horse free passage.  "The Cossack ,did not draw rein  until he had safely deposited his  prisoner, in the Russian lines. There  the Austrian general had plenty of  leisure to curse ihc: day when the  idea he had been so proud of had  entered hisltead.  Minard's  theria.

C.  FRIDAY, MARCH 17, 1916  A dog will not bite the master who feeds  him. In this respect the clog possesses a more  admirable trait than some men. A canvasser  for a fake advertising scheme recently passed,  through the Boundary and Kootenay districts.  In one town he secured a large contract for  a [vcrtising from the municipality. He then  canvassed the business men. Nearly all of  them took space in his so-called boosting  proposition; but because one man did not.{see  tit to do so, the canvasser, in obscene and  .vituperative language, outrageously libelled  him in his illegitimate publication. ��������� The language used was so vile that no decent newspaper would think of reproducing it. The  business man thus unwarrantably abused is  a heavy ratepayer in the city from which the  faker secured his big advertising contract, and  will thus have to help to pay the bill. This is  where the case of the dog biting the man who  feeds him comes in. For our part, we prefer  to feed the four-legged dog. lie has never  been known to descend to such base ingratitude.  In  connection with the  above  incident it  might be stated that business men and municipalities  are too  willing  to  be victimized by  every traveling faker who possesses some publicity scheme.    In the majority  of instances  their schemes are of questionable  merit,  and  the cost is usually out of all proportion to the  benefit derived.    The same amount of money  expended in advertising with the home paper-  would greatly improve that publication.    No  prospective settler is going to move to a community because he sees it advertised in a paper  printed at some distant point.    On   the other  hand, the" first thing a man does.when he contemplates moving to another town is  to send  for the local paper of that town.    If it is filled  with live  advertisements  and looks prospei-  ous, he   naturally concludes  that it is printed  itfti live and prosperous community; if it carries  but few advertisements, and   has  the apsear-  aiice of having a hard struggle  for existence,  he  naturally  concludes  that it comes from a  dead village���������a good place to keep.away from.  ,   In   his   valedictory : James W. Grier, who   has .published   the  New  Denver Record for the past six years,  last   week  said:    With   this   issue   we discontinue the  publication of the Slocan Record.    Since the war  commenced   it  has  been difliiult to make ends meet, even  by working from fifteen toeighteen hours a day, sevpn  days a week.    This difficulty has been gently added to  by a portion of the plant   being owned' by   politicians.  We have nothing to say against Mr. Hunter.    He is unfortunate in many of his political advisers.   He is in the  position of many other private members of   the   legish-  ture   who have  become  a   part of the '-organization'."  The continued success of-the party headed by Sir Richard McBride has attracted all sorts of adventurers to its  ranks, and these persons have become the rulers   of the  party in the province.    This is the usunl result  with   a  party strongly  entrenched   in   power  for a number of  years.    The grafters and place seekers get control of the  local, district and provincial organizations.    Those who  do not assist them in thpir designs on the   public trpas  ury   either  drop out or are shouldered out of the party  organization.    This  is the reason two cabinet ministers  were defeated   at   the  coast in the past two weeks, and  another practically defeated in Rossland.   The principal  aim of thf political machine in the  past  four years has  b^en to drive British voters ,ut of the   province and replace them with ignorant foreigners, The British might.-  think   and   then   vote; the   ignorant   foreigner neither  thinks nor votes     Today many Conservatives in Slocan  riditig imagine they have a district   association.    They  haven't     The political boss, an ex American politician,  is the  Slocan,.

The Sun will miss theR^coid, and  we should like to  place wreath   on its bier.     Mr. Grier belongs to that se  lect circle of   British   Columbia  rural editors who can  write a readable editorial in correct English.    As a humorist he is second only to Col. Lowery, and as  a condenser  of. a   page  article into half a dozeni words-he is  pre-eminent among the writers of  the-province.    As a  satirist   he can   cut   very  deep without descending to  slang or vulgarity    We hope to soon see him in harness  again    in   some   town   where his talents will be appreciated. '���������':  Saskatchewan is having its political troubles. They have a Liberal government there,  Walter Scott at its head. They also have a  measure of prohibition, after some years of  agitation and legislation. The trouble arose  over this question. According to disclosures or  charges now being made, the.liquor interests,  as far back as 1913 systematically and secretly  bribed some twelve of the Liberal majority  members to vote against the "banish the bar"  measure. It is also charged that in 1915 Hon.  Robert Rogers, of Manitoba notoriety, now  minister of public works in the Borden government; conspired with the liquor interests of  Saskatchewan to bring about by the use of a  large corruption fund the downfall of the Scott  government. At least two royal commissions  are on the tapis to get at the bottom of things,  and it is a wholesome sign of the times that  Liberals are just as anxious to have the mess  cleaned up as their opponents. The govern-  ernment, individually or collectively, so far  does not appear to be implicated.  Mr. Brewster's triumph in Victoria means  that after the general election in June he will  be called on to form a government for  British Columbia that will clean house.���������-To-  ronto Globe.  , -Now, understand this. -\b- is the trm, inside story of  the Kitsilano reserve deal.

It is on'e of the mosWstirring  things that has come from an American pen since the beginning of   the  war,   and   on   that  account is published at"length in this  column.   It  'seems almost an impertinence to introduce Mr. Winter to any audience,  so widely JJs he known as a dramatic  critic, student of the drama  and essayist. So far as the writer is aware,  however, he has not often   ventured  into poetry, but like many others in  many lands, he has been  so   deeply  stirred by the war that he has found  in verse his only adequate means of  expression.    As a dramatic critic, it  is. probably true that Mr. Winter has  exerted a greater influence upon the  American stage in the. past  genera  tion than any other writer.    He has  also an international reputation as a  student of Shakespearce.    The  fact  that he is an  American,  of  course,  makes his utterance   upon   the war  the more remarkable.    This   is   his  poem: --  My England! Not my native land,  But dear to me as if she were,���������  How often hava I longed to stand  With   those brave hearts wno fight  for her!  Bereft by Fortune, worn with Age,  My life is all I have to give,  .   But freely would that life engage  For those who die that she may live  Mother of Freedom! Pltdgrid to Right!  From Honor's path slie   would  not  stray,  But, sternly faithful, used her  might  To lead mankind the nobler way.  Her task was hard, her burden great,  But 'round the world her edict ran  That reared and  ruled the   Sovereign  State, :  Securely, on the Rights of Man.  JS'o vandal foot should tread her land,  No despot hold her realm in awe;  The humblestpeasant should comm'ai d  The shelter of her righteous law.  In vain her. lion port was braved!^ ...  Her pennant streamed o'er ev'ry sea,  . And wheresoe'er her ensign waved  All fetters fel 1 and Man was free  Today be all her faulty forgot,���������.  The errors of her nascent prime,  Or wily politician's plot,  Or blunder that was almost  crime.  Today,  when desperate tyrants strain,  By Greed and Fear and Hate com  bined,  To blast her power and rend her reign,  She rights the fight of all mankind  She fights for us���������for this fair  clime,  Our home   beloved, where'' f eemen  dwell,  Columbia,, grandest born of Time,  That Teuton malice burns to quell.  My England! shouid the hope becr-ist  In which she taught   the  world   to  strive,  Then all of Virtue would be lost  And naught of Manhood left alive  But 'tis not in the Book of Doem  That Justice, Honor, Truth   should  fail,  That earth be made a living tomb,  And only brutal Wrong prevail.  If can not be the human race,  Long   struggling   up to Freedom's  sun,  Is destined to the abject  place  Of vassal to the murd'rous Hun!  .   Stalk   forth ' th' intrepid   Russian  bear!  My England!���������patient.raliant,true!���������  Nor foes' without nor foes within  Will shake her purpose to subdue '  The cohorts of embattled sin.  The swinish horde, the gilded .beasts,  In whom no touch of truth survives,  Who ravish women, murder priests,-  And' strew the sea with infant lives;  The Lords of War, who kill and maim,  .Exultant, while their people groan,  Steeping   themselves   in   crime  and  shame,  ���������To keep a despot on his throne;  That pigmy, to whose 'wildered  brain  Himself an Attila appears,  Who takes the name of God in vain,  ���������And drowns the earth in blood and  tears!  My England, strike!" Droop not  nor  pause, \'  Till triumph on your banners shine!  Then    take   a   grateful     world's applause���������  Millions  of  hearts   that  beat like  mine.  It is not out of place to add "at this  point that, apart altogether from the  merits of the cause of the Allies as  against the Central Empires, and  leaving aside everything British people and Americans have in common  except their-language, this in itself  made it almost inevitahle that the  feelings ot American readers and  writers would be,"for the most part,  with Great Britain. Americans read  English Books. American writers  revere British classic**, and today sit  at the feet of the great British novel  ists, poets and dramatists. Men like  De Morgan. Wells, Galsworthy and  Kipling have as many readers and  admirers in the United States as  they have in England. America is  their audience as much as England,  and those who admire English writers and have accepted their interpretation .of life would naturally follow  them and take thefr side, in a discussion of other questions. In this  war all Brilish writers have been on  the same side with hardly an exception.    At the time of the  South  Yale Barber Shop  Razor Honing a Specialty^  African war they were divided, and  that is one of the reasons American  sentiment was also divided. The  bonds that the writers, whether of  verse or prose, have established between the United States and England, have probably had as much  to do with the great sympathy of  the American people for the British  cause-as any other single influence.  This sympathy is very noble set  forth in Mr. Winter's poem.

Japanese Bomb Throwers Helping Us  Our troops in the trenches in the  Dardanelles were assisted by Japanese bomb throwers, who spread intense dismay among the -Turks.  These Japanese bomb throwers were  given to the government of. the Australian Commonwealth by the Mikado  of Japan.

May Have to Look After the Land in  England'  The necessity of replacing men's  labor by that of women in. agricultural  occupations is engaging the attention  of most people in England at the present moment. Lord Selborne, president of the'board,of agriculture, is a  keen advocate of women talcing the  -place ot men on the land wherever  possible.  In an address which he gave a few  weeks ago at Shrewsbury, he said he  had never seen what he believed nobody in England had ever seen���������"a  woman ploughing." "Women of every  class," he declared, "must assist. The  parson's wife, the wife and daughter  of the laborer, each in turn could  make a contribution to agriculture in  this year of war. and so work for victory just as husband, son or brother,  in the fleet or the trenches.  "I would make a special appeal to  wives and daughters of men who are  lighting', because'they are well cared  for by the nation. They, have not  seen grinding poverty whilst the men  are left as are the German women in  fighting the battles. It was no,t right  that a woman in this country should  live in greater luxury than she did  before her husband or son went away  to fight; she should-do her part just  as he men. She must go on the land,  if the farmer asked her, at a fair  wage, at a fair day's wage. This is  a moment when each man and woman  of every class must put forward that  unselfishness and patriotism on which  depends the fate of England."

Large  numbers  of  French  and  Belgium   soldiers appear  to  have  had  their  interest    in    the  Dominion   excited    to  the  extent  of  writing to London for literature  descriptive  of    its    opportunities    and  activities.    That    their  action    has  been     prdmpted     by     conversations  with   the   Canadian   boys    in  sufficiently indicated by the fact-that each  man   .makes    an express request    to  bo   informed     about,    a   '-.particular  province.     Thus   one- writes, for   details  concerning    British   Columbia's  fruit industry, another requires books  on  the. wheat  growing .areas of  the  prairie   provinces;    a third about the  mining districts of Ontario, and others  about  lumbering,   fishing' and   stock-  raising.    It does not require much insight to guess that some ardent British  Columbian  has  discoursed  about  tho advantages  of his  province,  and  that the men from Manitoba and Ontario have been no less active in imparting       information.      .Frequently  Canadians   themselves   write   asking  for books to be forwarded to a French  or  Belgian  soldier.    On    the    other  hand, some of the Canadians in England to whom the writer has spoken,  having looked on this island land and  found it good, express the determination to  establish  themselves  in this  country after tho  war.    Similarly,  it  is to be  expected that some Canadians will find attractions on the other  side of the channel and stay to make  a home in the land in which they have  fought so valiantly.    That there will  be a great exchange among the men  of all nationalities seems to be without doubt.

The new authorization,  if  consummated,   will   mean   the   recruiting   of  nearly  30: per cent,  of  all males  of  military-"   age     throughout     the   Dominion.    It will also mean an annual  expenditure   of   $500,000,000   on     the  j basis of $1,000 per man, in uniform.  I This was- the  estimate  made  by Sir  ' Thomas   White,   minister  of  finance,  when the authorized number was two  hundred    arid    fifty    thousand,    and  when  he  declared that  the  expenditure for the coming fiscal year would  approximate ������250,000,000.    It will not  far exceed that amount,   f  It is now more than probable that  Canada will have two full army corps,  consisting of four full divisions, on  the firing line by the beginning of  spring. This will constitute a splendid representation for the Dominion.  Preparations for an extensive recruiting campaign are now under  way. New regiments will shortly be  .'.uthorized for the various cities, i  towns and rural districts throughout  Canada.  In addition to these the minister of  militia declares that he has de'eided  to raise several special regiments including two or more Indian regiments, a Metis regiment, a naturalized Japanese-Canadian regiment and  La colored ..regiment. More attention  will .also be given to specialization in  other directions.  A new Irish regiment is to be raised  in Toronto, while the minister has  hinted that the hundreds of clergy  who have applied for positions r.s  chaplains be organized into a regiment of fighting parsons for overseas service..
