 FIFTEENTH YEAR���������No  Kettle Valley Orchardist  GRAND FORKS   B  C, FRIDAY, MAY 12, 1916  '$1.00 PER YEAR  __}  Mayor Acres and'Aid. Allen', Donaldson, McArdle, McCallum, Schnit-  ter and Sheads. were present at the  regular meeting of the city council  on Monday evening.  An application for city water  from Mrs. M. Japp was referred lo  the water and light committee.  The chairman of the finance committee reported that a communication had been received from an eastern financial firm stating that a  S5000 block of Grand Forks debentures of 1919 could be purchased at  an attractive price. He recommended that an offer of 90c on the dollar be made for them. The report  was accepted, and the council decided to make the offer for the.bonds  as recommended by the chairman.  Clerk Hutton reported that the  manager of the local; bank hank had  informed him that if the city's temporary loan amounted to $12,000 it  would be necessary for the city to  assign some of its delinquent taxes  to the bank. If tbe amount was  kept within the $8000 limit, he did  not.think tHs course would be necessary. He thought the sum required would not exceed $8000.  Mr. Hutfdn" explained" that Mr/Niles  had stated the bank had adopted  ibe above rule in all cities this year.  The finance committee was author  ized to arrange the matter with the  bank.  The accumulation of accounts for  the past month were ordered  to   be  paid.  The  chairman   of  ihe   board of  .   works    reported   that     no     street  grade had been established in   front  of   the   Grand   Forks   hospital.    It  would cost $390 to build  a  cement  sidewalk in front of the hospital and  Dr. Kingston's residence   The side  walk   on  Third street, from Bridge  street to Winnipeg avenue, had been  temporarily repaired by  the  board,  as tbe railway company had refused  to do the work.    He had thought at  first   that   the   city   team would be  able to do the street sprinkling, but  he was now of the  opinion   that   it  could be more profitably   employed  at other work, and he  ad viced   that  the    sprinkling   be   let   by tender.  It would be necessary  to   do   some  excavating for a sidewalk in front of  Mrs. Sloan's house on upper Bridge  street.    He recommended that   if  a  cement  sidewalk   is  constructed in  front of the Grand   Forks   hospital,  the hospital be required to pay   the  usual proportion of the cost.  On motion, the questions of constructing sidewalks in front of the  Grand Forks hospital and on upper  Bridge street were referred to the  board of words.  On motion ol Aid. Sheads and  Sebnitter, the council decided to  call for tenders for street sprinkling  at so much per hur.  The chairman of the cemetery and  and parks committee reported that  the cemetery was now in better condition than it had ever been heretofore.  The  matter   of   employing    Mr,  The chairman of the water and  light committee recommended that  the hours for lawn sprinkling be |  made the same as last year, viz,  from 6 to 9 a.m. and from 5 to 9  p.m., and that the charge be $3 per  lot of 100 feet frontage, with one-  third off for cash. He also recommended that the contract for relaying the water pipe on Lansdowne  avenue be given to Charles Bicker-  ton'at 12c per foot.  On motion of Aid. McArdle and  McCallum, the clerk was instructed to send out notices regarding  the lawn sprinkling'hours as recommended by the chairman of the  water and iigbt committee.  A committee from the board of  trade addressed the council and ask  ed for a grant not exceeding $50 per  month, for four months, to aid in  recruiting D company of the 225th  battalion. The money would be used  for refunding the railway fares  of men who came here from outside  pointr to join the ��������� colors The government made.no provision fur this  expense, and it was thought that if  it was made known that men who  wished- to enlist would be given free  transportation to this city it might  have a stimulating effect on recruiting. The money would be requisitioned from tbe city as it was needed,and only the actual amount used  for this purpose/would be drawn out  of the city treasury.  Aid. Sheads,   McCallum,   Schnitter, .-McArdle  and-Allen   expressed  themselves as favoring granting   the  request   made   by   the   committee.  Aid.   Donaldson   thought  that   the  government bore  all "recruiting ex  penses,   and  if it  desired grants of  this nature it should make the- fact  known.    A machine gun fund   bad  been raised in this city. After it was  collected   word   came from   Ottawa  that   it   was   not wanted.    This, he  said, looked very much  like raising  money under  false   pretences.    He  wanted  more   light  on the present  project before-he could   support  It.  On motion of Aid. McCallum and  Sheads,   a  sum   not  exceeding $50  per month,    and    limited  to   the  amount  actually   used, was  appropriated   for recruiting   purposes  in  Grand Forks and district for a period  not exceeding four months.   All the  aldermen supported   the   resolution  with the exception   of   Mr. Donaldson, who refrained from voting.  Aid. Sheads gave notice that at  the next meeting he would ask leave  to introduce a rate and tax levy bylaw, and also a tax rebate bylaw.  . continue at that hour for   the  com-  ' ing summer.  The committee appointed at the  last meeting of the hoard of trade  t) device means of raising funds to  facilitate recruiting, met ��������� in the  boa-rd rooms at 4:30 Monday afternoon. It was stated that funds  were needed for three different purposes, the most urgent being a grant  of about $50 per month for three or.  four months to be used in reimbursing the men who came to the city  to er.list their railway fares. A committee was appointed to interview  the city council and request that it  donate this amount. Money was  also needed with which to purchase  the soldiers necessaries and for a  company band. U was thought  that the gun fund would take cure of  the former requirement, and the  money for the latter purpose, if  deemed necessary, could be ra sed  by entertainments.  Mrs  E. E. W. Mills and children  eft yesterday for Lethbridge, where  they will visit at the home  of   Mrs.  Mills' sister.

Mr. Hobden states that according to  the reports from the various churches an all-round increase is recorded,  and the . progress made is the best  for many years. Two ministers,  Rev. J. H. Hobbins, of Greenwood,  and Rev. George Turpin, of Shore-  acres, were reported to have enlisted  as privates for active service from  the district.  Mr. and Mrs.  F.   II.

Danville Concert a Success  There was a good attendance and  an appreciative audience at the concert given by the Gjand Forks Baptist church choir in Grunwell's hall,  Danvile. Monday evening. The  choir, under the direction of Arthur  J Harris, rendered again Minpr's  cantara, "The Voice of the Shepherd"; also the humming selection,  "Soft Floating,'!] and "The Minute  Gun" with fine effect, the soloists,  Mesdames Chittenden, Henniger  and Dawe, and Mossrs. H. Burden  and W. J. Harris taking their parts  in excellent form. Assisting in the  second part of the program were  others, all excellent'themselves in a  most pleasing way. E. C. Henniger  was chairman; let the audience  know "who was who" in his inimi  table way.  Every   nne   was  delighted    with  Mr  and Mrs. Painton's piano duet,  "Tarantelle,"   and    Mrs,   Painton's  harp  solo,   "Jaudita." as   also with  Master "Emile Painton's violin solos,  "Salut d'Amour" and "Souvenir de  Wicniawski";  and   in   the   "Alpine  Maiden's Dream," with E J. Coker  in the violin   duet, aceompanied  by  Mrs. Painton at  the harp,   this   lad  did both himself and   his instructor  great credit.    Mr. Coker's fine technique and sympathetic touch in  his  violin   obligato  to   W. H. Tasker's  rich   bass in   "Narvina"   was   both  impiessiveand pleasing.   Mr. Cokijr  also plaved "An Idyl   in   Arcadie,"  and    Mr.   Tasker  sang  "Bid Me to  Love." Both "The  Carnival" selection by Mrs  Chittenden   and   "The  Songs   My  Mother Used   to Sing,"  with which she responded to the encore, were  well   received.    The national anthem closed a   most  enjoyable evening.    The concert was  under   the   auspices   of  the Danville  Sunday  school,    the   workers  and  scholars of which had no small part  in the successful attendance secured  on rather short notice.  The report of the Granby Consolidated company for the nine  month period ended March 31  shows that after paying bond interest of $167,342 and dividends of  $674,933, the company added to tbe  surplus 81,531,588. The total net  income for the period was $2,373,  863, of vhich all but $39,157, de  rived from the treatment of customs  ores, was net operating profit of its  own mines at Anyox vand   Phoenix*  The total copper production of the  period was 28,122,261 pounds, of  which 15,971,761 was produced at  tbe Anyox smelter and the balance  at the" Grand Forks plant. The Anyox mines from 516,381 tons of ore  yielded 105,951 ounces of silver and  28,254 ounces of gold. The cost ot  the copper produced and laid down  at New York from Anyox was 10 36  cents a pound and from Grand  Forks 13.74 cents, as compared with,  costs of 9.72 and 13.06 cents respectively for the six months ended  December 31, 1.9J__:~The higher cost  was due to shortage of power during  the extremely cold weather in January and February and consequent  decrease in production during that  time.  It is stated that the stock of- unsold copper in New York amounts  to 11,093,318 pouuds, and that it is  inventoried at 20 cents a pound.  Spot copper demands of late 30 to  3L cents.  The weather during the past week  ba:s not been exactly of a tropical  nature, but as far as can be learned  the nights have not been cold  enough to do any damage to the  truit crop.

Punctuation -marks, which divide  End end sentences, and thereby simplify the reading and understanding of  written and printed matter, are said  to have been applied first; by Aristophanes. The system invented by him  <Jid not become generally known and  soon was enu'rely forgotten. About a  thousand years passed before a. similar effort at improvement became to  be made. It was at the lime o:  Charles the Great when, at the insulation of the philosophers, Warnofried  and Alktiin. marks of punctual ion  wore again introduced into writing.  But these again fell into desuetude.

He is now lifty-nine  years oid. Though never particularly  successful in theoretical manoeuvres,  he has shown in war unequalled judgment and qualities of leadership, and  attracted attention at once in the retreat from Oharleroi. He went rapidly through the line of promotion up  to the  command  of an army.  In the Artois fighting last spring  General Petain's name was first associated with the "Iron Division" of  Colonials, which by September had  become France's finest striking force,  as was shown in the Champagne, and  now from the French counterpart of  the  German  assaulting "phalanx.''  Extremely energetic,^'General Petain, it is said, spent eight days of  the Verdun battle rushing about on  the front in an armored auto-mitrailleuse, thus 'exhausting, two drivers.  An officer who served on his staff  said  recently:  "Petain's staff officers must be a  'combination of track athletes and  champion cyclists."  Always  a believer in exercise  and  the care of the body, he was accustomed  while colonel  of the  a3rd  Infantry  at  Arras,   before  the  war  began, to weigh all his food, which was  scientifically  limited.     He   kept  him-j relief.'-' ���������Mns.  self fit by skipping night and morning ! Glengarry Ave  in   his  bedroom.    This    so    annoyed'  the occupants "of the  apartments  underneath that they complained to the  landlord,   who    gave    him  notice   to  leave   unless    he   agreed   to   stop  Petain preferred to take a villa, v,  a   garden,   and   continued   to   skip  the open  air.  Even since becoming a full general  tie has been known to challenge a  sergeant to jump over a dyke, or one  of ii Is staff lo race up an embankment.  His men adore him, and this, perhaps, is a reason for their invincibility, since French soldiers light as if  possessed when led by a man whom  they trust, and who they know will  lot ask them lo do what he does not  litre do himself.  An illustration of his soldiers'  spirit is given in the proud reply of a  colonial sergeant to a friend who re-  inoiistrared with him on his extravagance while on leave.  "We  o\'  Petain's  division." lie said,  "never save mon<jy.    We don't live to [  use it." ^ !  One  of  Marshal   Xey's  Guardsmen j  could  not have answered better.  Visitors to the Rescue  Petiy Officer W. Rright and Ship's  Corporal W. O. Hathaway have won  the Distinguished Service Medal for  a. gallant ������eed in the trendies in  Flanders.  A party of naval men were on a  visit to the western from.. The enemy  exploded several mines, and the local  position was for a time critical. The  handymen rose to the occasion. Two  of them, seeing a Vickers gun team  knocked out, manned the gun at once,  and kept it in action, while others  usfd rides.    The  position  was saved.  VMAKING GOOD". MAKES  FRIENDS.

I not only admire woman as the most  beautiful object ever created, but 1  reverence her as the redeemed glory  of humanity, the sanctuary of all virtues, the pledge of all perfect qualities  of heart and head, it is because women are so much belter than men  that their faults are considered greater. The.one thing in this world that  is considered constant, Ihe only peak  thai rises above the clouds, the window in which the light burned forever, the one star that darkness cannot quench, is woman's love. It rises  to the greatest height, if sinks to the  lowest, depth, It forgives the most  cruel injuries. A woman's love is tlie  perfume of the heart. This is the real  love that subdues the earth, the love  that has wrought miracles of art, that  gives us music all the way from  cradle song to the grand symphony  that hears the soul away on wings of  fire. A love that is greater than fire,  sweeter than life and stronger than  death.���������Robert CI.

Look up Seed Potatoes Now  Owing to tlie heavy losses in potatoes by disease last year, growers are  advised by tho Dominion departnient  of agriculture to immediately reserve  for seed purposes the quantity, and a  little more to make allowance for further losses through rot, required for  seed purposes. These should be hand-  selected tubers, sound and free from  any sign of rot. or decay, of uniform  size and pure in variety. They should  be kept until planting time in a dark,  well ventilated and cool place of storage, spread out in a layer not more  than throe potatoes deep. There can  bo little doubt that farmers who have  a good quantity of sound seed potatoes  on hand ���������will obtain a high price for  them when others begin lo realize the  scarcitv of such seed. .  tm&m������&&ffim&������������������������M&&&&&  iver  THE NEVV FRENCH REMEDY.

FRIDAY, MAY 12, 1910  gmg  As the enquiry into the "charges of "plug-  _" in ;he Vancouver by-election progresses  it becomes more evident that the whole affair  is a huge "frame-up" on the part of tne Bowser machine. This fact is now so transparent  that all persons who have enough brains above  their ears to create a decent headache realize  it. Cross-examined by Mr. Brewster, one of  the Seattle jailbirds made the admission that  the "pluggers" had voted "wet" and bet their  money on "Mr. Tisdall". Premier Bowser  had made no declaration on tlie prohibition  question prior to the by-election, and it is not  natural to suppose that the gang placed their  bets on Mr. Tisdall and voted for Macdonald.  As a rule, men bet the way they vote.'  It is not always the. men who makes the  loudest protestations of loyalty who are the  most loyal.

Mr. Ernie Miller} M.P.P., appears to have  been the first man to discover that there had  been plugging in the recent Vancouver by-  election. Perhaps he knew the true history  of the case even before the election was  held.  The Nelson-News is daily jrevealing its real  ownership.    It  is  backdoor.  bringing Bowserism to our  M. A. Macdonald, M.P.P. for Vancouver,  yesterday afternoon laid an information  against R. R. Gosden, a witness in the Vancouver by-election plugging investigation,  charging him with perjury. The information  alleges that Gosden perjured himself when he  said that Macdonald gave him $50 in Victoria  on Easter Tuesday.  Peace has been restored in Ireland. But  on the Mexican frontier conditions are not im-  preving. Too'many United States troops are  being rushed to the border merely for the  avowed purpose of capturing Villa, doad or  alive.  The Carranza government has "disavowed"  Villa, but this fact does not seem to satisfy  Uncle Sam. Apparently Garninza not a  kniser.  Ignorance is the stepmother of argument.  A "bunch of good fellows" collected by  Bowser from the slums of Seattle come over  here under guarantees of immunity from the  trown (given by Bowser) and testify that they  went to Vancouver and voted under a guarantee of $10 a day and expenses to prevent  other "good fellows from being put out of  business." Their idea, or the idea of those with  whom they are politically associated, is that  their evidence (bought by some one and to be  paid for out of the public treasury) will  save  NOW OR NtVER  (By Oliver Wendell Holmes.)

As heads  of the household they are  the  chancellors  of  domestic exchequers.    It is for them   to   bear  in  mind   that  expenditure upon articles that  are not actually needed is not alone lessening  their own resources, but also   depriving   the  country  of  something   that  might   be more  profitably applied.    The majority of men   will  agree that  so  far  as the  household is concerned their women are pretty  thrifty.    But  stinginess, parsimoniousness, or miserliness is  not thrift.    The thrifty woman combines with  a natural aptitude for economy the wisdom of  selection and utilization.    She knows when to  save and when to spend."   She knows what is  uecessary and what can be done wi.hout, and  she makes the best use of everything. Neither  does she do all-things herself.^.  When  help is  at  hand she utilizes it with discretien.    The  great aid to thrift is thoughtfulness.    In fact,  without that element thrift  is utterly  out  of  question.    The thrifty woman, too,  not  only  exercises   wisdom  herself, but  sees  that her  children do the same thing not  by-indulging  them but by delegating them to sundry offices  of which   they are capable, by making them  self-reliant.    But the  woman  can not do all  these things by herself.    She must enjoy  the  support,   countenance   and  influence   of her  menkind.    The greatest enemy to thrift is the  promiscuous doling out of the money. It is not  to boys and girls  a sign of good nature; it is  death to the recipient.    It poisons their disposition and .sows seeds of weeds that can never  be eradicated.    For that sort of thing women  are but little responsible, but where their  efforts shine is in allowing nothing to go to waste,  in making use of everything, and in exercising  ingenuity in food, dress, household labor 'and  the bringing up of children. An incentive to the  accomplishment of these things is a reflection  upon the times, upon the needs and experience  of their male relatives  at the front, and upon  the fact that every ounce saved is a contribution  to  the  welfare of the country and perhaps to winning the war.

For  tie fi:st fifteen years of this century  ... the   average   price   of   wheat    per  bushel   in ^Britain    was   98   cents,  _, where is in the first fifteen years of j  (he nineteenth century the averagej  was something like $2 66  While crop production occupies a  lirge space, livestock comes   in   for,  a large   share   of   at enlion, horses ���������  c ttle, sheep, s-vine and   poultry all  being   learnedly    dealt    with   along  with   d;iiry   products   aud     special  crops, such   as   sugar,  sugar   hens,  honey, maple products, flax,   fruit,  vegetables and tobacco.

RHEUMATISM^ MYSTERY  Unless Rooted Out of the Sys-  stcm It Grows Worse and  Worse  Some diseases give immunity  from  another attack, but rheumatism works  just the other "way.    Every attack or  rheumatism invites    another.    Worse  than that it reduces the body's power  so that each attack is worse than the  one before.   If any disease needs curing early it is rheumatism, but there  are   few  cases   physicians, find   more  difficult    to    treat successfully.    Wet  weather does not cause rheumatism as  was  once  thought,    though    weather  conditions   may   start the  aches   and  pains.   Rheumatism is now known to  be  dependent  upon  tho  blood  condition  and   medical  authorities     agree  that   the   blood   becomes     thin   with  alarming, rapidity as rheumatism  de-  j velops.    Maintaining  the   quality   of  the  blood is,  therefore, a reasonable  way oE preventing and curing rheumatism.    That it works , out Jn fact is  shown by the beneficial results which  follow a fair use of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.   These pills actually make new,  rich    blood     which    drives   out   tlie  rheumatic poison, and while the blood  is kept in this condition there is  no  danger- of the -trouble returning. .Mr.  W.  T. Pell, Palermo, Ont., says:     "I  was   attacked   with   a  trouble  which  was   ultimately, pronounced   rlieuma-'  tism.; Often I was barely able to crawl  into bed, and seldom able to do a full  .day's work! ��������� ��������� In this condition I doctored for a -year, absolutely getting no  better.   Then-1 consulted another doctor whoso chief consolation was that  unless I could get rid of the trouble i  would be a cripple for life.    He ��������� prescribed  dieting,  and I doctored  with  him for at; least six months, but instead of getting relief I became weaker and less able to get around. Then I  decided to try a doctor in Toronto, and  was   under  his   treatment  for  about  four months with no better results. I  gave up the doctors and tried other  remedies   which   were  equally . futile.  Then one day our store keeper sent  me a box of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,  saying, that if they did not help me I  need not pay for them.   I took then!  and  then  got  some more  and  found  they  were  helping me;    I    probably  used   $10   worth   before   I   felt   fully  cured, but they did cure me and were  cheap  as  compared  with    the  other  treatments which did not help me. The  cure was made several years ago, and  I have not had a twinge of -rheumatism "since. ���������-'-Today  I    am  well   and  strong and I believe I owe it all to  Dr. Williams': Pink Pills." ;        '    .

Parcels considered innocent after a  preliminary examination are sent on  as quickly as possible io their destination, while others of origin or destination which are subject to suspicion iuust pass through the usual  prize court procedure to which goods  seized .in ' ordinary transit must  submit.  The procurator-general of the prize  court is now trying to get information  from the consigners of parcels consisting of goods suspected to bo of  German origin in order to ascertain  if these were shipped under arrangements whereby the British government permits American importers to  ship certain kinds of goods from Germany.  ir.������__?_:n__������__K������3-5,K~_K_^  That Old Family Remedy "Nerviline" is Guaranteed for the  Worst Cases  If a snail could make up to look like  a race horse it would find plenty of  men ready to bet on it.

It is so well understood and so readily curable that every day we have reports of old ��������� chronics being freed of.  their tormenter.  "1 can speak confidently of the Ner-  vilino treatment, for the simple reason  that it cured me," writes Albert B.  Cornelius, from Kingston. "You can't  imagine-how _'iiff and lame and sore f  was.

For family use nothing equals  Nerviline. .       ���������  Co-operative Methods  The   Modern   Way   to   Ship   Livestock  to   Market  Tho live stock shipping associations,' common in Minnesota and Wisconsin, are co-operative institutions  of unusual merit. They substitute  for the old local buyer system, a  system of handling stock that results  in an actual saving in necessary expenses amounting to forty or.fifty  dollars a carload. This saving is  entirely ontsido of any 'profits thai  tho local buyer might take. It-is  quite impossible for a local buyer  to complet with a shipping associa'-  tion.  There aro approximately 200 'f  these* associations in Minnesota, and  so far as wo know, says A. D. Wilson, director of the extension division of the Minnesota college of agriculture,, not .one has failed. The  organization is exceedingly simple  as no capital stock is sold- and -none  is needed. It represents simply a  mutual agreement by a group of  farmers to ship their stock together,  and by this'means each farmer, regardless ot the amount of" stock  handled, is enabled to ship to a central market at carload rates and to  get exactly what his stock brings  on the market less the cost of.freight.  yardage, commission, v.etc. In -.other'  words, a man call sell ono hog to  just as good advantage as he can a  carload.  The Boys' and Girls' Clubs  One of the most valuable and interesting organization and educational  movements sUirted and supervised by  the U.S. department of agriculture, is  the boys' and -girls' clubs throughout  the'agricultural'sections of (his country. In the southern states 110,000,000  boys and girls were enrolled during'  .1915. Of the (30,000 boys, many were  interested in soil improvement and in  pig and poultry raising. The 50,000  girls were enrolled in the tanning  clubs. In the northern and western  states ���������.- there wore 150,000 boys and  girls onrolled in various clubs. ' ThV  leading,, projects were the growing of  corn, potatoes, garden and canning  wprk. ..Aside from the educational  value'.of this work the social and economic co operation resulting from these  clubs is beyond all valuation.

GRAND    FORKS,  PRINT AND CIRCULATE PATRIOTIC BELGIAN PAPER    I  Patriotic Belgians Laugh at German  Invaders' Threats and Wait  ���������  Paticnlly for the Day of Vengeance, When the Boschcs  Will Be Driven From Their Country  John Bull Young: Again  to  General von Missing is ��������� finding  that tho Belgians aro not tltc "capricious children'' he fondly supposed.  Eluding his army of spies and defying his hordes oi' police, fervent patriots conduct a spirited if secret campaign, like that of the "Black J land,''  against  the  German  tyrants.  Despising tho Germanized Jjelgiait  papers which seek to divide their  ranks, the patriots print and circulate secretly a patriotic paper, the  contents of which made German oC-  licials rave in impotent anger and  send German" spies feverishly inlo  cafes, shops, offices, and the homes  of the suspect.  There are Belgians who fear the  Germans, hut many .more fear the  vengeance of the patriots, who recently showed their will and energy  In tracking down the betrayer of  Nurse. Caveil and striking him dead  at his own door.  In-the towns and villages of Belgium the following proclamation is  prominently posted:  "Whoever within the territory governed by the governor-general is  found guilty o[ suspected incendiarism, causing an inundation, attacks  on or resistance to the representatives of German civilian or military  authorities, will be punished by  death, or, if extenuating circumstances are proved, by ten or twenty  ��������� years' penal servitude: Whoever  spreads false rumors in regard to  the German army or of so-called  victories by "the allies, or stirs up a,  rebellion, or instigates soldiers to act  contrary to their military duties, .will  be punished by five years' imprisonment.  But the patriots laugh at these  threats and wait patiently for tho  day of vengeance.  Everywhere in Belgium Germans  are buying or commandeering goods  and stock, which they send to Germany. While the food sent by America just keeps the Belgians from  starving, the Germans buy up at  their own prices food produced by  the Belgians themselves. Especially  are they keen on acquiring horses.  One Belgian farmer was ordered  to sell a really fine horse for $100.  Loath to parr, with' the valuable animal, the Belgian tried subterfuge,  protesting- that the horse was.'unsuitable, for military purposes, as it  suffered   from  defective   eyesight.  '���������In that case we will give you only  $40," said the German buyer, and the  horse changed hands at that price.  A patriotic Belgian dentist had a  similarly disconcerting experience.  A German officer afflicted with toothache came to liira for treatment, and  the sight of the suffering Him appealed to the patriotic instincts of  the dentist, who pleaded .that he had  no time for a-consultation.  Shortly afterwards he received an  official message ordering him to be  in his consulting room at seven  o'clock. Promptly on the hour the  victim of/Toothache and two other  officers prepared. The patient took  the dental chair, and his comrades,  drawing their revolvers, threatened  the unfortunate dentist with instant  death    if    he    inflicted    unnecessary  said   the   angry command-  Germany,  ant.  "Where the Bodies come from?"  asked the girl pleasantly.  She was doubly fined, but, as she  told her friends afterwards. "It was  well worth the money."  I    Belgium  is full  of Oernifm   troops.  j Jn the words of a Dutch-visitor, "Vou  fall over German soldiers as soon as  you reach Essclien (just over the  frontier). They pack the road to  Antwerp, and you can't move for  them in Brussels. They scorn strong  enough 'in numbers, but there is some  anxiety shown over a coming allied  offensive on a big, scale in the  spring."  Dry Soldiering;  203rd Battalion Bans the Use of Liquor  In  Its Ranks  The popularity of "Dry Soldiering"  has been demonstrated beyond the possibility of a doubt in the response received by Lieut.-Col. J. J_. Hansford in  his call for recruits for the 203rd battalion of which he is the officer commanding. '  Many of those who have flocked to  join the king's forces in this new battalion, have stated that the fact that  the saloon is to be always "out of  bounds" for its members, has been the  one point of preference most ' outstanding' and influencing them in their  selection of leadership.  ��������� The 23rd was originally heralded as  the "Methodist Battalion.". This, however, was an error, as its ranks are  open to all. It might be stated, however, that the entire Western Canada  organization of the Methodist church  s behind the recruiting scheme, and its  long-reaching.effectiveness is already  bearing much fruit.  Lieut. V. P. Lloyd of saskatoon, the  third of three sons of Principal Lloyd  of Emmanuel College, in that city to  enlist for service overseas, has been  selected lo take charge of recruiting'  work in the northern part of Saskatchewan, and has opened quarters in the  Canada Building in Saskatoon.  Capt. W. R. Green, whoso father's  name is a by-word among the Grain  Growers of Southern Saskatchewan, is  in charge of recruiting activities, in  the southern portion of the province,  and will have his headquarters in  Moose .Taw.,  For those enlisting now arrangements have been made that they may  return home for both seeding and harvest, which is a big consideration to  farmers' sons who are thus afforded  the/opportunity of doing double service for their king and country.  Those interested In the particular  benefits offered 'them in this battalion  might either write-or wire the Winnipeg headquarters in the Great AVest  Permanent Loan Building, and instructions will.be forwarded without delay;  and transportation arranged to the  nearest centre.  Frorh  an  Address by  Lloyd George  Munition    Workers  Whac  has. been    accomplished    in  these works is an illustration of what  Britishers'can   do   under     pressure.  Oifly   a   few   weeks   ago     they   were  turning out mantelpieces  here,  J.  believe, and  catching dab-chicks in the  stream.   (.Laughter).    Now  you  have  got.    these    magnificent    works,    all  within a few weeks and there (pointing to tho shells) is the result. There  is  your 12-inch  and  there  is  your 8-  inch,  and  there  is  your  heavy howitzer���������all   essential  to  victory  in  the  field.     I     am    not   under-estimating  those gallant men at the front, but I  lell you that the work which you are  doing   and   are   about   to   cio   in   the  j course or the next few weeks is worth  | an army of corps of the best infantry.  I (Cheers).    Vou have no  notion  until  you go there how important the work,  is  that  you    are  doing.    There  you  find    a    network    of trenches,  labyrinths of trenches, with every form of  obstacle and entanglements, and concrete   emplacements     that   our   men  cannot get over.    It is  no good  pitting their    poor bodies against machine  guns  and  trench   mortars.     How  are   they   to     get     through?     Those  shells are going to see them through.  (Cheers).    The  work you  are  doing  here   is   going  to  smash   through   to  victory;   and   if  yoii, saw,   as   I   did,  row    after    row    of these that were  just   waitng    to     be   sent  across   as  presents  for    the Kaiser���������how    they  cheer the hearts of our troops. They  do  not destroy life;   they spare  life.  Believe me, without these, thousands,  scores of thousands, of the most gal-  hint men that ever left the shores of  Britain  would  fall.    With  these they  will not merely    get  through  to  victory, but will come backr rejoicing in  victory  (cheers), and I am so glad to  know tiiat you here, each one of you  know that, realize it,    and    that-ycu  are     putting    the    whole    of    your  strength   into   it.

As the use of all'firearms by Belgians is forbidden throughout the  country, German officers have confiscated sporting guns, formed battues, and in some cases offered the  game at fabulous-prices to the real  owners of the preserves.  Fines simply shower on the unlucky Belgians. An unguarded" word  In a cafe, a sharp retort to a soldier,  an "insulting' glance at an' officer,  and the offenders are promptly- arrested and as promptly lined.  A young Belgian girl sent a letter  to a friend, making use of the phrases  "When these murderers are gone"  and "Anyone who is not a patriot is  a I'iochc!"  The letter being intercepted, she  was  arrested  and  heavily fined.  "Why do you call us Bodies?" asked the commandant petulantly.  "Why, because you are Bodies,"  retorted the young girl spiritedly.  "Von look like Bodies, you speak  like Bodies, ami you act like Bodies."  "I've  a good mind  to send you  to  -" Yes, It Has Existed  Quite true it is, as Jane Addams  avers, that China existed-a thousand  years without an army. "Existed" is  the proper word. So does a slave exist. So does a yellow dog, kicked by  every passer-by, yapped at by every  fellow canine, scratched by every cat.  But .do slaves and yellow dogs live?  Is their existence worth while? If  China has so existed for a thousand  years it also has been the victim of  every freebooting tribe that has come  its way. It has been enslaved by every  adventurous natioiiy Tt has been  forced under the yoke of foreign dynasties and obiged to bear the badge of  servitude���������a pigtail. And it has been  stagnant, so stagnant it has been unable even to decay like decent, self-  respecting countries under bondage.

U. 1098  _?s3_r  The Anonymity of Writers  Strange  a   Man   Who   Wrote  on  Fashion  Case   of  Articles  One of the standing subjects of humorous remarks among .New York  theatre'goers, are the weekly articles  on men's fashions, published over the  noni de plume of "Beau Bruinniel," in  the programs in the theatres of the  better class.  Some people think "Beau Bruiiiuicl"  is a woman, while others believe him  to he merely a haberdasher with a  drug habit. However that may be,  it is a reasonable supposition that no  one wears any of the clothes that  "Beau Brummel" writes about. It  couldn't be,done. If any man ever arrayed himself in one week's output or  the "Beau Brummel" fashions and  started down Broadway he'd land in  jail or the psychopathic ward at Belle-  vue.  The case of "Beau Bruinniel" is |  merely funny. But here is a grim  pitiful little tragedy which-is in a way  related to it. In a small'tenement at  the eastern, and poverty-stricken end  of Fifty-sixth street, the police found  John Couwell and his old mother,  dead from gas. The man was pas*  middle age, and. unmarried. They  livetl alone, and he idolized the woman���������a poor old drunkard. The neighbors said lie used to cry hysterically  when she would stagger home, stupe  fied with drink. At last he turned on  the gas while she slept, and died with  her.  lie wore cotton overalls at tlie time  of his death,.and the few articles of  his wearing apparel found in the  apartment were worn and ragged. Yet  the letters and papers which the police took possession of proved that  he earned a livelihood for himself and  his mother by writng articles on the  latest  fashions   in  men's  dress.
