C, FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1916  $1.00 PER YEAR  A huge fraud on the land department of the province was revealed  before tbe public accounts committee at Victoria Wednesday morning.  Acreage amounting to 5760 acres of  timber lands in tbe Renfrew district  vvas acquired as second class agricultural lands. The mill company's  books show 345,765,000 feet of timber, an average of 60,000. feet to tbe  acre. The statute says that land  ^containing 8000 feet to the acre shall  not be sold. Tbe deputy minister  of lands, before the committee, ad  ���������mitted the department maintained  no system of checking surveyors,and  there was no punishment for surveyors not making proper classifica  tions. ' The total purchase price received by tbe government was 817,  916 50. The company declares tbe  values for registration purposes as  ��������� $421,800.  In the light of the damning reve  lations before the public accounts  committee, such as the above, people  are asking if it is any wonder Premier  Bowser is trying to divert attention  from the investigations which tbe  opposition has so successfully undertaken. There is a provision in  . tbe land acfc which says lands may  be cancelled where obtained by  fraud.  Section 157 of the land act says:  "In all cases were crown grants of  lands have been issued through  fraud, or in error, or by improvidence or have, in any other respect,  been imprjperly issued, the minis  ter may, upon hearing the parties  interjsted, or upon default of the  said partits, direct such fraudulent,  erroneous, improvident or improperly issued crown grant to be canceled."  the  music.

It was stated  today by one of the  officers of  the  company   that  several   parties   are  anxious to lease the property and to  j start development work at once.  Crop CompetSons  The horticultural branch of the j  provincial department of agriculture  announces that horticultural crop  competitions will be conducted again  this year. The various competitions  are: Five acre plots of bearing  orchard; 5 acre plots of young orch-  chard; J acre plots of raspberries  aud strawberries;-^ acre plots of  onions and tomatoes; ������ acre plots of  celery; farm gardens;   city  gard-ns.  Twenty such competitions were  held last year throughout the prov-  vince, and by encouraging greater  care and attention, assisted materially towards better crops.  Farmers' institutes and Fruit  Growers' organizations are required  to organize the competitions, in  which work, however, they may  call on the services of the assistant  horticulturalists. In the case of  city gardens any organization for  civic betterment may promote a  competition.  The department, in addition to  providing assistance in organization  and in supplying the major portion  of the prize money, will also  supply the judg-j from its official  staff  The announcement in full, with  rules and regulations, application  forms, etc., can be had from the  office of any assistant horticulturist,  or from the department at   Victoria.  Local capitalists, including James  McArdle and son, Fred Russell and  A. E. Savage, on Saturday last inspected the mining property now  being operated within the city limits  of Grand Forks. They may lease  the mine for ninety nine years.  Excavating for the foundation of  the new Great Northern roundhouse  al Weston was commenced on Saturday last.  Captain Kirk made a recruiting  trip to Greenwood and Phpenix the  latter part of last week.  EXCITEMENT  Dr. and Mrs. Wilson and  family,  of  Spokane,   visited   Grand    Forks  i and utner Boundary towns for a few  days this   week.    They travelled in  a big mo lor car.  Richard Frache, of Lethbridge,  arrived in the city on Monday to  attend the funeral of his mother.  Mr. Frache is a member of tbe firm  of Frache Bros., and .conducts the  Lethbridge branch of   the   business.  S. Longhurst, who vvas in charge  of the Canadian Bank of Commerce  at Rock Creek, which .branch has  been closed, was in the city this  week.      .  Evangelistic Services  ���������Commencing   Sunday,   May   1.4,  evangelistic services   will be held in  Knox   Presbyteriau   church     each  nght in ihe v\eek, except Saturdays,  and will continue unlit Wednesday,  Aiiy 31.

Andrew,  of Glasgow,   Scotland,    the    soloist  and director .J song.   Mr.-Robinson  is a man well known.in the   church  from    east   to   west, and   one who  realizes fully Canudi's greatest need  at this present hour,     lie is an able  exponent of tbe truth, and  one who  believes in the old gospel unadulter  ated aud practically applied   to  our  present conditions.     An unsolicited  testimonial of his work says: "He is  an  experienced,   tactful   evangelist  who avoids    the   objectionable   so  characteristic in similar meetings as  conducted   by    some     evangelists.  Tbere is  nothing sensational in his  preaching.or methods.   His"evangel  ism is profound and sane.    He also  lakes   a   very   deep   interest in the  young people, knowing well   how to  interest them aud help them  spirit  .ually."  Mr. Andrew conies with a splen  did record as a director of song aud  as an attractive soloist. He was associated with .the famous Charles  M. Alexander, of England, some  years ago.   He   will   have charge of  Death of Mrs. Frache  Mrs. Magdalena Frache,   aged  67  years, 10 months Bnd 24  days, died  at her   home west  of   this city  on  Saturday  last  after  a short illness.  Deceased was a v^ry estimable lady,  and   had  a   wide circle  of  friends.  She had been a resident of the com  munity   for  about   fourteen   years.  She   is  survived   by a family of six  children, four sons and  twoclau^h  ters-���������Richard    Frache,     of    LiHh-  hridge,   Alta ;���������  Berth,   Gustaveand  Alwin   Frache,   of   this   city; Mrs.  Hansen, of Grand Forks,  and   Mrs  Staffen, of Oakland, Cal.    The  sheerest  sympathies  of  the people of  the district are extended to  the   be  reaved family.  The funeral was held on Tuesday  afternoon at 1:30 o'clock from the  family residence to the Methdist  church, where services were conducted by Rev. J. D. Hobden. The  service was very largely attended,  and many beautiful floral offerings  were made. Interment was made  in the Oddfellows' plot in Evergreen  cemete.y.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  The concert recently held in the  Baptist church, and so thoroughly  enjoyed by those present, will ber e-  peated in Grunwell's hall, Danville,  on Monday, May 8, at 8 p.m. In  a few changes, the program will include some very popular selections  by the violin, harp aud piano, and  also by the vocalists.

Children's Patriotic Fund  The following contributions were  made during the month of April  to the Children's Patriotic Fund by  the pupils of the Grand Forks public school:  No. of      , Average  The  arrival   of  a  C.P.R. freight  train from Nelson on  Sunday  night  created   a  good  deal   of   curiosity,  expectancy  and   excitement  in the  down town district.    As is  customary, the train blew its whistle when  it  approached   the city.    It  is also  a  custom,   however,   to   blow   the  whistle for few a seconds  and   then  Bbut it off.    But this time the whistle did not stop   whistling.    It kept  up the noise until the train got into  the yard, and for an indefinite   time  afterwards.    This unusal occurrence  gave  rise  to  numerous conjectures  among   the  citizens, the conclusion  most  commonly  jumped   at   being  that   the   train   brought   news of a  great victory by the allied   forces in  FlanderjJ,   and   that   the  train crew  took this method of celebrating   the  event.    After the whistle had   been  blowing for   about  fifteen   minutes,  a number of auto  owners   motored  up to the station to obtain first-hand  information respecting  the   hilarity  of the whistle.   They were informed  that the  engineer  had  opened  the  whistle and the shut off mechanism  had got out of order and he was  unable to stop the noise. And the whistle kept on whistling until the steam  engine went down.    It was a case of  much ado about nothing, and  those  who wenl up to the station to investigate the situation felt that they  had  paid too much for their whistle.  The uew camp of D company,  225tb battalion, was opened at the  fair grounds last Wednesday after  noon The Daughters of the Empire served coffee and cake. The  grounds have been put in very good  condition aud the camp looks quite  coujfortable.

He  naturally did not like the look of  things and may have called upon  the premier to ascertain just where  he and "de gang" stood, if he did  tbe conversation must have been  very direct and interesting. We can  almost hear Dynamite saying:    "See  There was a   rumor in the West  end on   Tuesday  that a C.P R. tank  car  of gasoline   was leaking badly,  and that the entire freight yard was  being soaked   with   the    explosive  fluid.    Owners of autos  saw visions  of cheap   motive  power   for  their  cars, and they interviewed the local  officials  of   the  railway    company  with a view of acquiring some ofthe  gasoline that was reported to  be going to  waste,   but  the  officials refused to negotiate any kind of a deal.  Toward   nightfall,   when   it   was reported that the fluid was running in  rivulets from the tank, the residents  in   ihe   vicinity  of  the  yard commenced to get uneasy, and some  of  them were even making preparations  to spend the night elsewhere.    They  argued   that  some  one might come  along and  drop a lighted match on  the    gasoline-soaked    ground   and  blow the whole west end of the city  above the clouds.  It finally occurred  to some one that, before any drastic  measures were taken, it would be a  good  idea send a delegation  to  the  yard to investigate the extent ofthe  leakage. Thedelegation was selected;  performed its mission, and returned  and reported that the  tank   was  so  tight  that  the  odor  was   scarcely  strong  enough  to  reveal  the pres-  Frache on Tuesday last.

There is evidence  that the remote beginnings of this'war  had to do with the building -of the  Bagdad railway toward tho Persian  Gulf. Railways were an important  fealure of the war's strategy. We are  told that at tho outset of the war Germany expected to have France whipped in. a hurry and to hurl her armies  by rail into Russia before thai, nation  could mobilize because of her Jack of  railways. Mi.ilary strategists tell us  that much of Germany's strength results from her network of railways  that enable her armies to be shuttle-  cocked back and forth quickly from  one frontier to another. We know that  Turkey long ago would have attacked  Miez if a railway'reached there; and  report has Turkey building one across  the desert to yet reach it. , Wo read  of Turkish armies fighting to retain  control, of the Bagdad railway and cf  riritish and Russian expeditionary  forces headed toward that railway to.  capture it." The Russian army is impeded in its m-.rcli westward from Er-  zerum because no railway is there.  We look into the books'of ���������statistics  and find that in all of Persia before  ���������the building of the Bagdad railway  there were only 33 miles of railway;  Persia-in-Asia has only three thousand  miles of railway, and its population is  nearly twenty millions. *,  It is an amazing thing." when one  comes to think it over, that millions  and millions of people in this world  never even saw a. railway, and that  there aro other millions who live so  remote from a railway that they seldom see one, and get no benefit O'om  one. The country in Asia through  which the Russians and British are  now fighting is the oldest in the world.  The earliest traditions of the race begin there. Written history has its  first page there, and yet the millions  who live there are wholly without railways. Their methods of transportation have been always the crudest���������  the camel caravan, the creaking ox  cart.  Those vast populations that slept  while the outside world moved on are  getting the beginning of railways now.  But meanwhile they have lagged far,  far behind, and it. will take many years  for the civilization that follows rapid  transportation to do its work.���������Kansas f'ilv Star.  47% i  27% |  3 2% |  ' w \  7% j  Welshmen, i  city,-  A Three Years War  We took Lord Kitchener literally,  observes the London Standard, when,  with his usual calm wisdom, he spoke  of a three years' war. Regarding the  war as a purely military problem, that  estimate: holds good. It was, of course,  always on the cards that Germany  might not consider it.worth while to  persevere to the bitter end, or that  .sin.' might be reduced lo submission  by economic- pressure; and those possibilities still exist. But when wc relied, what defeat, means to Germany,  and especially to the llohenzollern re-  fiime  count  iority  sired  cided.  it seems foolish optimism to  on any factor but. sheer super-  in anm to bring about the de-  i\-!sult.

Analysis   of   Nationality,    Occupation  and Religion of Recruits in the  100th Battalion, Winnipeg  Some very interesting recruiting figures are provided by Major G. .VI.  Reid, of Ihe 102th Battalion, Winnipeg  Grenadiers, a unit now being rapidly  organized for service overseas. These  facts and figures indicate that so far  as the One Hundredth is concerned the  majority of those enlisting continue to  be  Englishmen.    An analysis shows:  English   Canadians   Scotch   Irish   Others   The   "others"    include  Americans and New Zealandcrs.  That married men are still enlisting  in large numbers is shown by the fact  that  of several  hundred  men  whose  records were taken, 33%% were married man and about two-thirds of these  had families.  The ratio of rejections in  the One  Hundred is somewhat high, indicating  the strict standard maintained by the  battalion.    Slightly under 40%  of all  applying have been unable to pass the  doctor.    The desin. of these unfit in-  diyiduals to ,erve is commendable, but  on active service physical fitness is a  first essential.  Jt might also he mentioned that the  junior  element,  of      e  community is  displaying great keenness  to  take  a  hand  in  the  game.    Three  times  as  n:any drummers ami buglers have offered as the One Hundredth can use.  H is appropriate that the One Hundredth, raised by the well-known Winnipeg Grenadiers    and    essentially a  Winnipeg unit, should attract a high  proportion of Winnipeg men. But it is  particularly  -worthy  of  note  that  no  fewer than 5% of the total strength  so far are actual natives of the  being born in Winnipeg.  Under  the  heading  "Occupations,"  much interesting data, is  elicited.    A  careful analysis' reveals the following  varied classification and it is noticeable throughout the enlistments that  an exceptionally finel class _bfVmen -is  joining the 100th Battalion.  Former occupations of men enlisted  in the 100th Battalion:.    ���������  Skilled Mechanics ....... 6%  Farmers i.nd Ranchers.. .1S%  Clerk, Bank Clerks, Bookkeepers,  etc'   -1S%  Tradesmen .10%  Professional and Business  Men'  9%  Railway Employees   8%  Engineers       (civil      and  mechanical)     S%  Carpenters, Moulders, etc. 7%  Miscellaneous   '. lb'%  .Many and .varied occupations are  grouped together under the headings  "Professional and Business Men" and  "Miscellaneous." Some of the most  interesting are as follows. Stock brokers, railroad contractors, building contractors, commission brokers, school  masters, college students, accountants,  jewellers,, hankers, real estate agents,  grain buyers, artists, printers, stonecutters, miners, florists, gardeners,  moving picture operators.  It is interesting to'observe the var-j  ied entries under the heading-���������"Religious Denomination." The Church of'<  England leads-with almost half the I  battalion acknowledging that form of)  religious . faith. It is a coincidence!  that there is precisely the same pro-1  portion of Englishmen in. the batta-1  lion as of members of the Church of j  England, viz., -17%. The ratios are: i  Church of England. .47% |  Presbyterian    24% \  Methodist  ..14%  Roman   Catholic 10% '  Baptist   1%  Other   denominations 5%  -  The "Other Denominations" include  almost every known variety not omitting Christian Scientists and Plymouth  Brethren.

They are taking  caro of the wounded, or if they cannot  assist in work of that kind thjy are adding  their savings to promote thogood work.  They are knitting and sewing for the  soldiers at the front.

Thousands of women in Canada have  overcome ' their sufferings, and have  been cured of woman's ills by Dr. Pierce's  Favorite Prescription. This temperance  medicine, though started nearly half a  century ago, sells most widely to-day,  because it is made Tuthout alcohol or  narcotics. It can now be had in taWc-t  form as well as liquid, and every woman  who suffers- from backache, headache,  nervousness, should take this "Prescription" of Dr. Pierce. It is prepared from  nature's roots and herbs and does not  contain a particle of alcohol or any narcotic. It's not a secret prescription for  its ingredients are printed on wrapper.  Many a woman is nervous and irritable, feels dragged down and worn out  for no reason that she can think of. In  ninety-nine per cent, of these cases it  is the womanly organism that requires  attention; the weak back, dizzy spells  and black circles about the eyes, are only  symptoms.

U. 1097  No Invasion of Canada  . However imperfect our own military  system may he, the United States government is sufficiently prepared in a  military way to squelch any attempt  to use this neutral soil as a base for  military attack on Canada. It is now  almost fifty years since another expedition, based on analogous lines,  attempted such an invasion. At that  time Canada was weak; thousands of  good fighting Irishmen had Just returned from the Civil War, and the  feeling in the. United States, even  among those hitherto well affected toward Englam,, was that, next to the  Confederacy, the worst foe ihe American Union faced was Great .Britain.  Uut with all these factors in its favor,  ihe Irish invasion of Canada scarcely  passed tho peri- of inception.

Slow Bjit Sure  Victory for Allies  Allies Are Moving Little by Little to a  Successful    Conclusion     of  Hostilities  "The   success  so   far  attained  has  been due  to the indomnltable  spirit,  dogged tenacity which  knows no defeat, and the heroic courage so abundantly displayed by  the  rank and file  of tbe splendid army which it will ever  remain the prido and glory of iny life  to have commanded during over sixteen months of incessant.fighting." So  wriies Sir John Krenc.i iii the stirring  message in which he takes farewell of  the army in a ranee.   Sir-John is not of  opinion   thai   the great    qualities  to  which   he   bears   tribute    have   been  wasted on a profitless enterprise.    On  the contrary, he declares  his conviction  that a glorious ending to these  heroic and splendid efforts is not far  distant.   We hope these words will be  taken  as    more    than    conventional  rhetoric of-a farewell message.    They  remind   us  of an aspect  of the   war  which  is  forgotten   by the  impatient  spectator who has got into the habit  of talking and thinking as if the war  in the west were an interminable wait-,  ing in  trenches  with  no prospect of-  conclusion  or solution.    It is, on  the  contrary,  a  prolonged  and  unceasing  struggle   in   which   two   vast   armies  are perpetually at grips, in which for  many months the allies held on desperately against superior  forces,    m  which   for   many months   more   they  struggled for equality, and are now at  length  struggling for ascendency.    Tt  is a war in which the occasional battles  are  on   a  bigger- scale than   tho  greatest  recorded   in   history,   a   war'  which needs unceasing vigilance and  prolonged preparation for every movement. We get only occasional glimpse?  of its realities, but long after the event  we learn that a few lines, in a  daily  communique has conveyed the news of  a battle as big as Sedan, and  that a  single "quiet day" has been varied by  incidents of unsurpassed courage and  daring.    The popular habit of calling  this   warfare  "stalemate"   does   most  serious injustice to the armies and the  generals and   the governments  which  arc laboring to supply their needs. We  get a  superficial idea of apathy and  weariuess  when the reality is  incessant lighting, unrelaxed strain, feverish activity of attack, defence and preparation.    The belief that it is fruitless and endless Is an illusion of the  civilian.   The soldiers know by a thousand unrecorded signs  that they are  moving, little by little, to a conclusion  in which one r.rmy will prove definitely  stronger  than  the  other,  and   the  weaker be obliged1 to evacuate its positions.    They  know  that    there is  no  other way than that of the "indomitable spirit and dogged tenacity which  knows no defeat," and though the war  is long and weary and dangerous, it  is not from them that we get the cries  of  impatience  or dissatisfaction,   the  demand for new and sensational methods to cheer the public with announcements of victories on newspaper posters.���������Westminster Gazette;  Diseases Carried by Dogs  Every Dog Has His Day and Also Hit  Germs  ,.Dr. 2,1. c.

British Railroads  Do Great Service  One  to the differ  receipts if  during war-  some of the  of   Finest   Feats  of  Organization  During War is Shown  Calculations just finished for the  first year of the war show that the  working of the British railroads is  probably the greatest feat of British  organization during the war. It cost  the government only the comparatively trifling sum of ten million dollars,  wherefor millions of British troops  were transported to all parts of the  country, while the regular'passenger  service scarcely showed any signs of  the outbreak of war.  All the railroads are under government control, and are worked by a  committee of managers, payment being calculated according  ence between the net  1013 and the receipts  time. Considering that  railroads carried occasionally flfly  troop trains in one day, as well as  supplying innumerable trains for military supplies ami material, the cost  to ihe government is amazingly  small. The low expense is only attributable to the extraordinary economical methods of the committee,  wno abolished all wasteful competition while maintaining adequate passenger service.  The success of the committee on  railroad management is bound to  lead to a strong agitation to nationalize the railroads after the war, and  the proposal is likely now to meet  with little opposition from the directors and shareholders.  The satisfaction of government officials and'the railroad managers over  the showing found a ready response  with the public. The British point  out that their railroad methods rival  Germany's vaunted system,( and that  the feat is all the more remarkable  because British lines were built with  an eye to peace purposes, while the  German network of lines always has  had military advantage in view.

FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1916  The investigation now being carried  on   at  A'Tictoria  into   the  alleged frauds in the Vancouver by-election has  the appearance  of a  Tory "frame-up."

He admitted that he  lied, and yet was promised immunity from  prosecution. He appealed to Chairman Neil  JVlacKay to make good the promise that had  been made to him that he would be "protected." Even men favoring the govern me*" t were  surprised at the glib way the man gave evidence and also at the way in which Mr. Mac-  Kay protected him from embarrassing questions and blocked the cross examingation. It  was brought out, too, that Kelly had rehearsed his evidence before Bullock Webster,  a solicitor of Victoria.  The political atmosphere of Canada is far  from being pure. ��������� From the Atlantic to the  Pacific the public press teem with accusations  of graft, and in nearly every province, as well  as in the federal parliament, royal commissions are investigating charges of graft and  maladministration.' This is a lamentable  state of affairs, and if a cure is not found conditions will soon become unbearable in this  country. Perhaps the most effective means  of purifying public life would be for the better class of'our people, who now hold themselves aloof from mixing [n politics, to take a  deeper interest in the administrative affairs of  the nation. This could not help but prove beneficial. It might also bo a good plan to keep  second and third-rate lawyers out of office.  At home they prey on the public by legal and  illegal means, and when they get into office  they naturally suppose that they are entitled  to everything in sight. Keep them at home  and there will be fewer scandals in official life,  and the public service of Canada will be raised  to a higher plane.  THt CLARION CALL  Last year Canada responded magnificently  to the call of the empire. The soil was cultivated to its utmost limit, with the result that  a beoitntif'ul harvest was reaped. Boys and  girls united with their parents in showing the  good will and the proud national spirit that  they possessed. They bent their energies towards making the laud produce all that it was  capable of doing.    The times were not.financially good and bitter experience had been had  with crop failure in the previous year. ' Nothing  daunted  they  went  to werk with determined will and persistence, and- they  reaped  where they had sown.    When the crops were  gathered granaries  wore  full  to overflowing.  Canada had cause for  the  celebration of the  greatest,  most intense, most earnest thanksgiving she had ever known.    That there was  no unmindfulness of the source from which all  blessings flow was shown in'action as well as  in words.    Patriotic gifts came from many directions in many ways.    The women- worked  with  life and  love.    They gave the fruits of  their labors  and   they gave  their offspring.  The men devoted their acres and their services  to the cause of the  empire.    Bo}7s  and girls  cultivated  what  they  termed  war-plots, the  yield from which went  towards filling the exchequer of patriotism.    There were  slackers  then, there were  Scrooges then, there are the  same elements  today, but  the evidences  of  sympathy far overshadowed  the  discordance  and  such a  front  of union was displayed as  commanded tho respect and admiration of the  world.  This year there must be no backing up.  Even the unwilling of .last year, the Scrooges  and the men and women who put personal  profit before love of country, must, if possible,  be brought into line. The situation, is more  intense than it was. There is more suffering,  there are more widows and orphans, and there  are twice as many men on the fighting line  and under arms. As the '"ar progresses the  slaughter becomes greater, more shipping and  more property ar.e rutelessly destroyed, and  the cry for help is keener. Were it not for  the British navy our allegiance would cost us  dear. Were it not for .the united armies and  for the organization for protection from assassins, traitors and incendiaries that exist in our  own land, we should be at the mercy of the  same cruel and barbarous forces that have  overrun and laid waste Belgium, Poland and  Serbia. We should be taxed beyond all bearing. We might even practically be slaves,  working not for'ourselves, but for tyrannical  taxmasters, for men compared with whom,  judging from some oi their actions, Legree,  the. novelist's type of a brutal, cruel slave-  driver, was, in deeds of villainy and harshness,  no worst;.  The future of the empire rested in a large  measure with Canada at the beginning. It  rests with- us to a greater extent now. We  have increased our responsibilty. We have  voluntarily added to the weight of our share  ofthe titanic burden. We must bear the self-  imposed load cheerfully and generously. We  must show our worthiness of the trust assumed, We must prove our appreciation "of  the high and honorable partnership into which  we have entered. We must do all this,  and we must/perform our tasks with, if at all  possible, increasQtl zealousness. To halt or  pause would be fatal. Our works of charity  must continue to the full *ind be added to.  Our eye, not only on the present but also on  the future, must never hesitate or waver.  When peace comes our granaries and our  stalls must be full.  Today we are called upon to do our share  of the fighting,to care for the sick and weund-  ed, to honor the dead and to admire the living hero���������and they are all heroes who go forth  ���������tomorrow we may be summoned to replenish the earth, to help in the arts of peace, and  to do all we can to assist in repairing the terrible ravages of a war tha has taken on such  proportions in magnitude and savagery that  even Armagedden is scarcely thought a fitting  descriptive term. In short, it is our duty to  be prepared for any and every eventuality,  both present and future. At war, we are yet  not at war. We can plough, sow and reap  and tend our fiocks and herds undisturbed by  the thunder of artillery. We can carry on our  industriss without let or hindrance. We can  win glory on the battlefield, or we can live our  own lives amid peace and plenty. All that is  demanded is remembrance of our country and  truth   to ourselves.    That  is the clarion call.  The Sun, at $1.00 per year, gives its readers  three times more reading matter than any  other Boundary paper.

When  in camp the boys have to do their own  cooking and look after themselves, the  only exception being that they have a  substantial meal provided for them  in the middle of the day. Manchester  Grammar School is taking up scouting  in a similar way. It has been decided  to start a troop consisting entirely of  boys in tho school, and it is expected  about 150 will be enrolled.

Addressing a gathering of the Canadian Club at Ottawa recently, Premier Hughes of Australia paid a very  Ktrong tribute to the work of the British navy. "We would not be hero, free  men, today," lfe said, "if it were not  for the British navy.'" The navy had  stopped tbe commerce of Germany,  .while from every part, of the empire  ships laden with provisions, munitions and war supplies of all kinds,  made their way in safety to the  mother land.  "If Great Britain," he said, "had  been as well .prepared on land as on  ��������� sea, this war would not have been."  The Brii.su .navy had made of the  great German navy a sort of glorified canal boat. ..  The speaker declared .emphatically  that the British empire would 'never  lay down its arms until .Germany nad  been beaten.' The German army had  already been ringed in with walls of  ���������teel. Me spoke >vith deep feeling of ^  the splendid heroism of the Austral-  Ian troops on the Peninsula of Galli-  opli, instancing one charge in which  an Australian battalion wont forward  knowingly to; certain death after its  members had left their last farewells  with those who stayed-behind. This  splendid act, he said, far outshone the  famous charge of the; Light- Brigade  at Balaclava.  Premier' Hughes, referring to his  Inclusion as a member of the Canadian government, said: "1 hold this  position in trust for the Australian  people." The war, he went on to say,  had found'the -empire a. scattered  family of nations. It would leave it  a- homogeneous whole.  "W.e -'could: have, purchased an ignoble peace," Premier-"��������� ������������������Hughes asserted.' . "The Germans were prepared  to'��������� treat Canadians as an independent  nation and to confer a like favor on  Australia. In this attitude they were  like the man-eating tiger which deals  with its victims separately. Germany now knows that she is fighting  not only England, but also the men  of adventure and resolution in all the  British Dominions," who will fight  to. the end alongside those who gave  them their traditions. We shall not  quit while life remains in us.".  "The issues at stake aro vital," continued Premier    Hughes,  some   may  look  on   with  indifference,    and    hold  aloof,   they    are     being  against their will, in this  gle,     which,    like  some  British Officer's  use a Success  "Although  an   air  of  themselves  enveloped,  great sfriig-  great  tidal  wave sweeps resistlessly over the  whole earth and cannot be dammed  here or there by the act of any man  or any-nation. The destiny of the  world is trembling in the balance and  every nation, and every man, must  make up its or his mind on which  side to take a stand.''  This war would leave the world  different from what it found it. The  Avar had como at once as a mighty  spur, a sedative, a corrective���������perhaps needed by our race for its salvation. It would profoundly affect  the destiny of tne whole world. If  by aJiy malign stroke of fate the issue should turn against us, the clock  of civilization would be set back a  hundred years. The war fell upon  the empire menaced with turmoil.  But at the first rattling of the sabre  turmoil died down,' dissension ceased  and we were a united people. There  was not-a man from Dan to Beers-  sheba, there was no place from one  end of the empire to the other where  the people did not stand four square  against the common enemy.  The premier said that during "the  eighteen months of the war Australians and Canadians had on the ."held  of battle proved that "the ancient  valor of their sires still burned in  their veins. Canadians and Australians had both proved themselves to  be men. They realized that it af-  fec/ed their very existence. He  stood there as a representative of  labor and tne most democratic government on earth.  "All the ideals that you and I  jointly cherish," he said, "and (hose  ideals that are peculiar to labor���������  all these rest upon the foundation oi  liberty. We in Australia and you  here in Canada, have fought, are  lighting and will continue to fight  to tlie end, for those free institutions which to free men are dearer  than life itself."  "This one lesson must be learned,"  said the Common wealth, premier,  "from this great war. Some day the  wings of the dove of peace may beat  a sort of lullaby throughout the land.  But that day is not yet. Until that  day downs it is the duty to free men  to be able as well as willing to defend their country. Neither liberty  nor our national rights can ever be  safe when wo neglect the defence or  our country." It could not be left  to volunteers, for as it concerns all  so must it apply to all."  ���������  ."Putting One Over" the Germans During a   Bombing   Duel  Private Burridge of a gun battery  now in France, tells a good story of  a British., officers' ruse that "put one  over" the Germans.  "During a bombing 'strafe' at a  German sap," lie says, "somehow tho  fuses of our bombs were a little damp.  And hardly a bomb exploded at,,all.  But the Germans're-lit the fuses, and  began to throw tho bombs back.  "Then our bombing officer had an  idea. ���������He. took the damp fuses from  the bombs and put in some instantaneous -ones���������with tlie rcsu+t that  when the Germans put a light to  them, after our fellows had thrown  them over, they immediately exploded.  "I think they spent the most  miserable half-hour of".: their lives  lighting instantaneous fcrao and  blowing themselves up with them.  They did not disturb us for weeks  after  that."  "At many parts of the line you are  within easy speaking distance of the  enemy, and many amusing conversations, generally ended by a few bombs,  have taken place. We called over one  morning, 'Hullo, Fritz! What's the  menu for breakfast?' The answer we  received was, 'Cocoa, d���������you, cocoa!'  "At another place we could throw  'bully' over. Wo threw two tins, and  presently one of .them.'.shouted back,  'Hurry up with' tlie biscuits!'"

The farmerv who is  not noted especially for the remarkable results of his large farm and  large herds, but with whom making  money,' while carried on .effectively,  is secondary to living a life full of  helpful deeds to his follow man, may  be classed as a llower in the rural  community. _.  Rural life may be lacking in many  things, but of all the things lacking  the'greatest'lack, is in life ideals. The  rush for dollars from early morning  until late at night with a view only  of expanding the farm and possessing more wealth than the neighbor  is one of the evils which has come  with modern commercial agriculture.  The fanner with higher idealsshould  be more appreciated, for "in proportion as riches and the rich men are  honored in the state, so are virtue  and virtuous disnonored, and what  is honored is cultivated, and what is  dishonored is neglected," according  to Plato. The following is the definition of a "real farmer," -written by-  one of the flowers of southern Wisconsin's rural life, a .man of whom  every citizen of Wisconsin should be  proud: ,  "And who is this real farmer? The  man who farms, simply to see how  many dollars he can get out of his  year's labors? Not for a moment.  That is all too narrow a conception  of the real farmer. Rather, it is the  farmer to whom farm life and farm  surroundings constitute the ideal of  human happiness; the farmer who  knows as well how many children he  has as how many cattle and hogs;  the farmer to whom it is as great a  pleasure to find in his rambles afield  a baby calf, colt, lamb or litter of  pigs, with attendant manifest maternal affection, as it Is to grasp the  price of a fatted steer; the farmer  who finds satisfaction in binding up  a broken leg and oftimes succeeds  when the veterinarian said, 'Oh,  shoot it; setting will never succeed;'  the farmer to whom every horse,  dog, cat, and even the diminutive bantams look to, and justly so, as a  friend; the farmer who finds pleasure in the realization that a great  pari. o������Jiis, mission is to feed the  world���������this type alone constitutes  tho real farmer.''���������If. c.

Typographical Errors  How it is Found Possible for Mistakes  to Occur in  Newspapers  Newspaper readers frequently call  attention to typographical errors, and  are somewhat given to saying that  they "don't see how such a mistake  occurred." The wonder is that so few  mistakes occur. The Philadelphia  Public Ledger recently reviewed the  story that tho Oxford edition of the  Bible was read and re-read ten, times,  and that immediately after its publication a reward of 50 pounds was offered  to any one who should discover a typographical blunder. One was, found in  the first chapter of Genesis. There  Is another tradition that-the man who  read proofs on the Lord's Prayer for  that edition went insane for fear he  would" make a mistake.  One of the great dictionaries published in this country, a standard authority/was read in proof eleven times,  and some of the most learned men  in the United State.3 wore constantly  enga.ged in revising it, yet1 typographical errors may still be found in the  completed work. . Blunders in publications of ���������ordinary' books, no matter  from what --publishinghouse, are common, though they are carefully read  and re-read. . '.-..-.'.  .In a, newspaper plant, operators of  typesetting machines set from the original "copy," considerable speed must  be maintained; proof is taken of the  matter thus set and is read���������never  more than twice���������by a proof reader,  who marks on the margin ������������������'such corrections <as may be necessary! The  lines marked ar-e reset, and the new  lines of type substituted for those'  in which errors wore found. Then the  type goes into the forms and impression is made.  Therefore newspaper men smile  when they hear, "I don't see how such  a mistake occurred."���������Richmond (Ya.)

' To support my statement, I wish to mention a few ot" the  many cases in the county where the  humble hen is doing her part in keeping the profit'and loss balance on the  right side of the account, says a writer in an American farm journal.    .  One farmer, who could not possibly  be called a professional poultry man,  as he owns, operates and lives upon a  1,600-acre farm and mai-kets potatoes  and grain by the carload, is very enthusiastic over the; profits realized-)  from fhe flock of 100 Barred Rocks  -which he keeps through the winter.  The strain Is not "fancy" nor is their  housing or feeding carried on according to book. They are just plain hens,  cared for as many farmers' hens  should, be: hatched early, fed and watered regularly, with free range in  summer and a warm house in winter.  This man assures us that chickens  pay well on the farm.  Another very aggressive farmer reports that the eggs marketed through  the winter and early spring enabled  him to keep a bit ahead of his grocery  bill all the time, and the family at his  table numbered sixteen. On this farm,  like the other, the poultry industry is  fliot emphasized; the fowls are given  comfortable quarters' and ordinary  care, but the owner knows that they  are giving good returns for the capital and labor invested.  There are other instances which I  might mention, Avhere the egg  money from a small flock was practically all the cash new settlers saw  during their first season in the country; and still-others where the actual  profits from an entire farm consisted of the good wife's egg money.  I do not love chickens except in  pot pie or roasted; I know of no  other .living creature which has so  many different ways of being irritating as the hen allowed unlimited  indulgence in her natural proclivities. But when restricted in her  range, and given half a chance; she  will make it all up in tho number of  "strictly fresh" she will kscp in the  egg basket.  bring under cultivation an acreage  capable of producing a crop of nearly  .a thousand million bushels of grain  is no small accomplishment. Vet. if  the whole history of the thirty' years  were written it wc-^-.d contain many  records of failures and setbacks that  would be discouraging if considered  in full detail. The statement has  been made that the present areas under cultivation ���������have'-to a large extent  been settled upon twice, the first arrivals having given up the struggle  when faced by i\ short -crop. This  can be true -only in a general way.  It would probably be more correct  to say that over the dry belt a large  percentage of settlers failed to make  a permanent home.  The same sort of experiences have  been recorded in all of the western  states. Kansas,���������������������������which'. Is now the  foremost wheat producing state;: of  the "'Union has a history/almost tragic. Droughts, -.cyclones-":and insect  plagues followed one' after the other  and the farm population was several  times reduced to a fraction of what  it had been in prosperous years. The  valiant few who held on through all  the dark years had the satisfaction  of winning out in the end. It was a  natural selection of those who were  able to adapt their methods to the  new conditions which confronted  them not unlike the tests that were  applied to the men of Gideon in the  olden time. .  Of the difficulties" that face the  prairie farmers the most formidable  is the lack of moisture in certain seasons. , Frosts and rust are to -be reckoned , with but in the majority of  years the supply of moisture is the  deciding factor. The past year was  an exception in this regard and ihe  fact that heavy yields were obtained  on lands that had- very indifferent  preparations may lead to wrong conclusions as to the best methods. It  was a season when the usual sign  failed and the miraculous happened.  With the abundance of rain during  the growing season there was cool  "weather which retarded the ripening  of the grain. Had the early fall  frost come at the  ing done at different times, but are  more favorable to late work than  they would be in normal years.���������Montreal Family Herald and Weekly Star.

What is  not quite so clear to the majority, is  tlie fact that milk varies considerably  in its test, or content of fat. from  day to day, even from one milking to  another on the same day, and from  month to month. This applies to  mixed herd milk and more particularly to milk from single cows.  Thus, if milk is valued according to  its fat content, it is evidently of extreme importance to every dairy  farmer to know what the milk does  test; further, lie needs to know,  whether selling cream or pooling milk,  if Spot's milk tests u.5 or 4.8, if Blossom's milk tests 3.1 or 5.2 per cent, of  fat. In one herd where six samples  of milk from each cow were tested  each month, it was found that three  cows averaged only 1.8, 2.8 and 2.7  per cent, of fat for the whole year.

But when we reflect what defeat means to Clermanv,  and especially (o the Ilohenzollcrn regime. It seems foolish optimism to  count on any factor but sheer superiority in arms to bring about the desired result. The war is still undo-  cided.

Also unprinted wrappers.    Our prices  are right.  We SUN PRINT SHOP  Produce More and Save More  The Empire needs food. If you are not in the fighting line you may be in the producing line. Labour  is limited���������all the more reason to do more than ever  before. Grow food for the men who are fighting for you. The Allies need all the food that  you can produce. Every little helps. You are responsible for your own work. If you  cannot produce as much as you would like, produce all you can. Work with the right  spirit. Put fighting energy into your effort and-produce now when it counts. The more  you produce the more you can save.    Producing and saving are war-service.  Make Your Labour Efficient  In war-time do not waste time and energy on unimportant and unprofitable work. Economize labour.  Put off unproductive work till after the war, and, if  possible, help in producing something needed now. Let us not waste labour. Canada  needs it all. If possible help to feed the Allies. Make your backyard a productive garden.  Cultivate it with a will.    Make your labour count for as much as possible.  Do Not Waste Materials  i  There should be no waste in war-time. Canada could  pay the annual interest on her war expenditure out  of what we waste on our farms, in our factories, in  our homes. Every pound of food saved from waste is as good as a pound of increased  production. The way for a nation to save is for every individual to save. France is strong  to-day because of thrift in time of peace. The men and women of Great Britain are not  only " doing " but are learning to " do without."  Spend Your Money Wisely  Practise economy in the home by eliminating luxuries. Wasting our dollars here weakens our strength  at the  Front.     Your savings   will help Canada to  finance the war.    Save your money for the next Dominion War issue.    There can be no  better investment.
