The celebration under the auspices of the Grand Forks fire department in this city on Victoria
day���next Wednesday���will be a
big success, if the energy of the management of the affair may be taken
as a criterion on which to base the
prediction. The sports committee is
now engaged in arranging and attractive program of horse races, foot
races, and other athletic sports.
There will also be a baseball tournament, and a firemen's ball in the
evening. All who attend are assured of a good day's sport.

NOTE AND COMMENT
A
nnance, Arrested at
nstance of Liberals,
Given Nine Months
iC
Peter Annauce was found guilty
by Magistrate Shaw in Vancouver last
Friday of attempting" to secure per
sonation of absentee voters at the last
provincial by-election in Vancouver
and   sentenced   to   nine   munth|s.:im-
.'t **' V
prison men t in-the common   jail vwith
hard labor.     A fine of $300   was-im-
..  posed   by   the  magistrate-in addition
t) the jail sentence, in default of   th >.
payment of which Annance will serve
three months longer.   The court characterized Annance's offense as one  if
the most serious nature and   a   crime
which    struck    at    the   very    root of
democratic government. Dugald Don-
a��hy, counsel for   Annance, gave   notice of  appeal, the   magistrate  fixing
the costs of appeal at Si00 and    nam
ing   the    bonds   for the prisoner's ap
pe<irance   in    the   higher court  when
the case is called to appeal   at  $5000
personally and two independent .sure"
t es   at   S2500 each.     When th? bail
bonds had been.fi-ced Police inspector
Anderson led Annance   to   the   eel's,
where he was locked up   pending   the
furnishing of the bonds
Magistrate Shaw, in his summing
u' , unsparingly denonno-d Annates
and referitd in unqualified and unreserved terms to the seriousnesf of t.e
offense he had committed.

Speaking to his resolution re
questing the attorney-general to take
action under the criminal code of
Canada against ministers who had
b en implicated in giving the P. G.
E. railway the moneys from the
bond guarantees, H. C. Brewster,
L;heral. leader, in the house last
Friday drew attention to tbe general
incompetence . and wastefulness of
ihe government. He made it clear
he was not opposed to the completion of the P.G.E. and declared its
importance and benefit to the province, but he did maintain that the.
government had fallen far short of
i'8 duty to its trust when it allowed
the P.G E. to obtain the big sum of
money before the Hue was completed, and contrary to the agreement. Dealing witb the road itself,
he said it was admittedly a neces
sary line. In 1912, the- Liberal
leader pointed out, Sir Richard Mc
Bride, as prime minister, and Hon.
Mr. Bowser,as attorney general, both
guaranteed in public speeches that
the road would not become a debt
on the province, and there was no-
danger for the people if they entered into the agreement.

a in. service with the Sabbath school
conducted by Rev. F. A. Robinson;
at 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. services
in the Presbyterian church; at 3 p.

jaie   cordially   invited   to these sei-
i vices.
If the. present price of copper is
maintained the employees at the
Granby smelter will receive "another
23 cents per day raise in wages on
tbe first of the month.
A change^wasmade in the firm of
the Grand Forks Transfer company
on Tuesday last, when W. J. Mc-
Intyre, the senior member, disposed
of his interest to L. O, Walton, of
Nelson, and tbe business will hereafter be carried on by Vant & Walton. Mr. Walton, who is a brother
in-law of Mr. Vant, moved to the
city this week.
Attorney.General . Bowser   knew
that H. C. Hanington was getting  a
commission   on   the   purehase of a
court house site in   Victoria.    That
was -the   sworn   testimony  of  Mr.
Hanington .before   the   public   accounts     committee   recently.     Mr.
Bowser  does   not   recollect   that he
had   any, such    knowledge, but   he
does riot say he did not know.   That
also Mr. Hanington told   the   committee. The inspector of legal offices
was not shaken in his remembrance,
but   he   deferred   to what he   considers  the wonderful, the   udracu-
lous, memory of Mr. Bowser.
The special services now being held
in the Presbyterian church are increasing in interest,attractivenessand
helpfulness. The sermons delivered
by Rev. F. A. Robinson, B A., are
strong, logical and convincing, and
such that appeal to the reason and
the judgment of the hearer. Mr. Robinson holds fast to the great essential truths which he knows are vital
for the solution of the existing prob
lems of today. The singing under the
leadership of W. R. Andrew is wor-
sbiplul and inspiring. Mr. Andrew
evidently- is- an. able.���conductor of
sacred song, and his services are of
great value not only to the meetings
but to those in the choir under bis
training The public,old and young,
are cordially invited to attend these
services.
Privates Alfred C. Heaven, William C. Collins and Adamard Gali-
peau, of the 10_r.d battalion,Comox,
who visited their parents in this city
last week on leave, returned to the
coast on Saturday. The 102nd battalion expects to be moved from
Comox shortly.
On Victoria day the Great Northern will hold its Phrenix train in
this . city until 11 p.m., so that all
visitors from that town may be assured of a lengthy day at the firemen's celebration here.
We observe from a press dispatch
that Bowser's headquarters in Seattle have been raided by the police.
It was a "blind pig" conducted by
one Sullivan.
Mr. Walton, who visited his son-
in law, Ernest Vant, in this city for
a few days, 'returned to his home
in Nelson the first of the week.

He regretted to think that a   crime of
the kind of which Annanc. was guilty
should be committed in Canada.     His

testimony   of   tne   witnesses   for  tl e
prosecution, stating that  he   did   not
think that those men would   come   to
ciurt and deliberately concoct a fiendish story out of whole cloth. On the
other bond there were so many inaccuracies and absurdities iu the evidence of the accused and he gave it
with such a lack of frankness that it
was impossible for the court to believe that it was true. As to Annance
being made the "goat" for some one

Orchardists state that the prospects are good this year .for the
largest apple crop ever grown in the
valley. While the bloom of some
of the earlier varieties was slightly
injured by frost, the winter apples
came into bloom too late to be damaged.
Rainbows have been quite uum

A   number   of  cars  of    potatoes

Noiseless Guiir-
An entirely new type of* gun,
which army officers; believe i.pay
revolutionize artillery warfare, will
be given a sound trial at Fort Hancock soon, following two remarkable
demonstrations of its p_-wer at ;>ort
Hamilton and Sandy Hook.
The new weapon,in the perfection
of which a   woman, Mrs. Katherine
M.   Stanton,   of    Whitestone,  LI,
aided, operates upon the fundamental    principle  of   centrifugal   force,
without powder,therefore being both
noiseless and   smokeless.   Although
it can be packed in a three foot box,
and can be operated from   any sort
of   base, from an  automobile  to   a
dreadnaught.it will throw projectiles
of different sizes six or seven miles,
according to the officers who saw the
first trials.
Tha gun can be manufactured at
one tenth the cost of big guns using
powder, and its operation is said to
be so simple that trained men are
not needed to work it.
The Granbv' Mining company; with
copper properties- at Phoenix and
Hidden Creek, in British Columbia,
and large smelters at Grand Forks
and Anyox, earned in excess of S20
a share for the fiscal year ending May
31, 191C, according to preliminary
estimates The profits of the com-,
pany in April were about S600.000,
as compared with 8470,000 in March,
while the net earnings for the first four
months of the current year were not
less than 81,000,000
The Anyox smelter treated 75,000
tons of Hidden Creek ore in April,
which was well up to the highest tonnage yet put through the plant. It
is planned to keep all four furnaces
at Anyox in continuous operation if
possible to assure maximum production. The amalgamator recently installed has been operating satisfactorily, extracting an average of four
pounds of copper from eaeh ton of flue
dust at the minimum cost.
According to reports received from
New York the directors of the Granby
are contemplating increasing the annual dividend rate to 8 per cent,
which means that quarterly disbursements will be 82 per share or $299,-
970, as against present payments of
SI.80 a share .or $224,972. If Uift
increase is authorized it will become
effective for the current quarter.
Bernard Frank, formerly post
master at Albarni, has. been appointed chief clerk for the Granby
at Anyox.

Reserve Judgment
The statements of Gosden, Planta
and others before the select, com to it-
tee at Victoria yesterday were of a
sensational character and calculated
to cause a certain amount of anxiety,
says the Vancouver Sun. It must be
remembered, however, that * they
constitute but one side of the story.
The government is beyond all things
anxious to besmirch the reputation
of M. A. Macdonald, and will not
hesitate to adopt any means which
will assist in that object. Their existence depends no longer on vindicating themselves, because that is
impossible; their only hope lies in
befouling the reputations of their
opponents. The people of Vancouver have absolute faith in M. A.
Macdonald, By the time the conspiracy at Victoria has been devel
oped that trust will be more than
justified. The other side has not
yet been heard. In the meantime
it   is  the duty of  every one to pre-
The Liberal Press
A good thing for  the   public  interests, but which bodes no particular good for the Bowser government
when   it   can   no   longer hold back
from   going   before   tbe  tribunal of
the people in   tbe general    election,
is the fact that it has not been   able
to control the entire   press   of   the
province and make it subservient to
its will.    Leaving out of   the count
the well-known papers   in   this part
of the province, including  the  Victoria Times, the dean of the Liberal
press of the province, which do not
bow the knee to   the   Bowser  Baal, ���
there is a fair sprinkling all over the
country of  able, vigorous, and   outspoken  journalistic   champions   of
independent   Liberal     and   reform
principles, and hence uncompromising opponents of the kegenerate and
moribund remnant of   an   administration  at   Victoria.     The    Inland
Sentinel,  of   Kamloops   (daily), is
one of the  foremost  and   oldest  of

For ���������Better Planning and a Constructive Policy in Regard to  Colonization  ' in, tiie agricultural areas of. Canada  there is a crying need for a constructive- policy, to enable colonization to  be ���������carried on under'conditions which  will produce greater stability and en-  Mire' perinauent settlement, Tliere' is  general agreement that the present'  methods are not satisfactory, and that  Hie-system of land division is partly  responsible for the failure. Many.cliil-  l'erenl reforms have been suggested,  anil 'have sufficient plausibility to be  worihy of being enquired into. We  need rural planning as' well as town  planning.  The need for reform nas been emphasized as a result of discussion of  the problems likely to arise iu con;  neclion with returned soldiers. Thes.  men will want to earn a lielihood, and  ii. lias been suggested that many will  desire, to turn to farming for that purpose. If that desire should exist to.any  great extent, do we regard ourselves  as being prepared to cope with ii'.' In  tbe old country they are considering  schemes Lo develop small holdings  tor returned soldiers, but, if men who  return from war want to. ;;H back to  the land, is it-not likely th.it Canada  can offer Jitter attractions than any  oilier country, if we have the riyht  system to make the most of the natural advantages we possess? If, with  Hie return of peace,-there is to be a  great demand for land v.-; not. only  neftcl to have tlie supply to meet that  demand but the right conditions to organize and distribute''the supply. This  is a problem which is closely connected with town development, but it is  also, a problem which''involves a certain amount t.f replaniiing of the agricultural areas themselves. Many people, including those accustomed to  living in rural districts all their lives,  crave the social attractions / of the  towns. A factor which induces "people who are habituated to rural conditions to migrate t������ the towns will be  present in a stronger degree fu connection ���������with, attempts to settle men  who,; like returning soldiers, have enjoyed the iiiTercburse and facilities of  town  life.    Such  men  are  not  likely  and. by proper planning together with  (lie employment of electricity for power, small village industries can be  made as profitable as laYge city industries.    ���������  Some of the scientic methods, knowledge, and money which have helped to  create the great railway system and  manufacturing centres of Canada  might, very well be directed for a. time  in helping to build up a system of colonization which would make' agricultural life more attractive and add immensely to the resources of tlie Do-  minion'and the utility of the railways  themselves. We have seen in the  past few years that mere growth of  population is not in itself a means of  increasing -material wealth���������ii. is only  .when.that growth is properly direcied  and controlled that prosperity comes  with tlie increase.  When the tide of immigration again  begins to (low it will be too late to d_-  ! vise means to properly direct it. It is  lour duty to; apply all our schemes or  (.planning and social readjustment so  ! that the war will leave us richer and  I not poorer in regard to our economic  I conditions, the stability of bur prodtic-  i five enterprises and the health of our  I people. We in Canada at least.need  i nor, if we choose, face a situation in  ] which our industries are paralyzed be  I cause we have failed to. prepare ofr  ; peace, which is just as necessary as to  | prepare for war.  A scheme to successfully attain the  desired objects must be so framed as  to make the utmost use of individual  enterprise, to attract the right kind  of men with small capital and give  some' security of their success, to enable "some financial support to be given  to'such^men. to secure tlie utmost use  of co-operative facilities in the making of purchase's-and distribution of  produce, and to provide the necessary  social and educational facilities within easy range of the homes of the  settlers.���������Conservation of Life.

Interesting   Report Just  Issued by the  Commission of Conservation  According to press reports, Sweden  proposes to cut off the export.of chemical pulp-to Great Britain. Naturally,  all eyes aro immediately'. turned to  Canada to supply the threatened deficiency.  The .commission of conservation has  just issued a report on ���������-"Forest Pro-  ���������lection in Canada, 'Ji)ia-'lU14," which  is of particular interest in this connection. It contains much information respecting the work of the provincial forest services and of the .federal'''departments intrusted with the  care of our forests.  Forest lire protection is assuming a  large place in public attention. Jt is  obvious that, if Canada is ro continue  as a wood-producing-,-=. country, she  must conserve her resources of this  natural product.

They must be planned in  such a way that [here will not be an  entire absence of facilities for social  intercourse, co-operation, transportation and ready means of ���������������������������marketing.  All these things are necessary in combination to make farming pay, and,  unless we can make farming pay, we  cannot solve the problem of rural depression. Consideration will have to  be given to the provision of capital,  the training of inexperienced men. the  selection of suitable areas, and the  proper planning of agricultural colonies.  In properly organized agricultural  colonies, such as those which exist iu  Belgium and Holland, it is essential  to have indoor-rural industries situated in tlie village centres, and such industries could provide employment  I'or many men who are urisuited or  unwilling to take tip agricultural  work. The establishment of rural industries in Canada is a matter which  might very well receive encouragement, apart from 'tlie question of providing for returned soldiers, with a  view of increasing the number of small  villages and towns, rather than, as in  tiie past, to provide attractions for  them to congregate wi large cities.  The more widespread the population  is the more healthy it will lie, and Hi;  more it will heir tc solve many problems which have been created by our  having thinly scattered agricultural  population oi ihe one hand and overcrowded cities on Ihe oilier. The problem of providing I'or .tlio returning-  soldiers and for ihe anticipated increase in immigration would neem to  provide the oppon.uui: for making an  experiment in linking up the amenities  and facilities of lown life will! the  healthy conditions .of the country.

"There are    said    tc be, on reliable  authority,   some   600,000   refugees    in  Petrograd, which number does not, of  J course, include the German and Aus-  i trian'subjects, who. in the first months  | of the war, from their homes in the  j Baltic provinces and along the Russo-  !

Possibly it'was  due in even greater measure to,, a  failure to realize tlie incredible power  of sentiment when really great emergencies arise., Blood is thicker than  water, and, after all, there had been  no doubt in the mind of the Dominions as to what Germany's intentions  were during all those years when, half.  our British politicians were trying to  persuade themselves, .in defiance of  all the evidence, that, she meant; tlio  British empire no harm.���������London Telegraph.

C.  FRIDAY, MAY .19, 1916  Any one reading the subsidized Tory newspapers nowadays might easily come to the  conclusion that under Premier Bowser's code  of laws it is a criminal offence to have a person arrested for perjury, especially if the perjury is committed in an attempt to save the  decadent government of the day. This" a is de-  plorabje state of affairs, and shows to what  depths some newspapers are ready to prostitute theircolumns(for patronage. The people of  the province can take heart,however. The same  conditions prevailed in Manitoba before the  downfall of the .Roblin government. In British Columbia the end of Bowserism is near at  hand.  he secured a job si* janitor iu the parliament buildings,  furnished one of the sensations at the taking of evidence  at the Vancouver by election "investigation" at Victoria  Thursday evening.  Parker Williams took the witness over his career in the  Vancouver Island strike.    Williams attempted jjto call   to  the witness' attention some remarks he made in   the horse  show building in Vancouver in December, L913, at  a   big  gathering addressed by Gosden.     Ernest Miller   objected  strenuously to getting this evidence as to the   character of  the witness, which Brewster  explained was   to   test   the  credibility of the witness.     Gosden admitted a   statement  he made at  that, time about   '"Bowser's coffee."     In this  address Gosden had declared thov ought   to put poison in  Bowser's coffee.    This statement next day was  put before  the jury hearing the miners' cases. Miller bucked all Wil  | Hams' efforts in this respect.    The witness said he was not  afraid   of the   questions,   but  still   Miller seemed to be.  Williams then referred to a public meeting   at   Extension  held   hy   Gosden, who  got   through the police where the  citizens could not.    Gosden admitted that at Ladystnith he  called on the miners   to ".start something" and he   would  "lead them."  Williams���������Did you tell them Bowser would not   arrest  you?  Witness���������I challenged Bowser to arrest me.  Within twelve months after these incidents Gosden got  a   job   as  janitor at the parliament buildings, which surprising fact, in light   of  his   record, was   brought out by  WilliamsVfurther questions.  The'people of British Columbia practically have paid for  the construction of the P.G.E. railway. Another "loan"  is to be voted the concern, but the contractors will own  the road after it is built, and besides will have realized  handsome profits on contracts for construction made with  themselves. That is our method of making millionaires  like "Bill" and "Dan "  The only trouble with the west is, tnat it is  becoming too highly civilized. In old pioneer  days when a man ran against a sti^ak of bad  luck, his friends and neighbors would extend a  helping hand; that is, if he was ait all inclined  to walk in the straight path. .Today everybody is chasing the almighty dollar, and when  a fellow commences to go down hill,every man  he meets tries to push him a few'feet iarther  down the grade. This is, apparently, present-  day civilization, but it is not humanitarian.  Of late we have noticed many men sitting on  the banks of the Kettle river, weeping because there are no more frontiers  to  pioneer.  The citizen of the United States who today  opposes preparedness is a short-sighted fool.  That country will have lots of enemies after  the present war has ended.  "No truck nor trade with the Yankees'  was a slogan that did its "bit" in winning the last federal election for the Tories. It  is a pitv that the men constituting the shell  committee at Ottawa did not observe the precepts of this rule. If they had done so, the  poor taxpayers of the coun try would now  be better off.  Short term government bonds and direct loans to concerns wishing to build ships to market natural products of  the province was the suggestion of H. C. Brewster, Liberal leader, made in the house last week. In the debate on  the government shipbuilding measure, which the Liberal  leader attacked as further burdening the province with  guarantees upon which the people might be called to pay,  as in the case of one railway company already, and another rail way very soon Mr. Brewster's speech was listened to intently. He did not attack the principle of the  bill and made it plain that he ,was very desirous of giving  some real assistance to the lumber business which, at  present, suffers from inability to market its products. But  he was unalterably opposed to the manner in which the  government proposes to go about guaranteeing promiscuous companies' bonds.  If   the   young   woman   who is serving six months' imprisonment with hard labor reads the report of the inquiry j  into blind pig affair, her regret that she was   not running I  her place in the interests of the Bowser candidate on election day must be very poignant indeed.���������Victoria  Times.  The premier again sees a "change in public opinion."  He reported that "dozens of men" who had voted against  the government in the by election in Vancouver had come  to him with assurances of support. We wonder if they  were the same "dozen" who gave him similar assurances  before the election. And how man)' "dozens" were there1?  Surely the "miraculous memory" took full note of the  number to the last penitent convert As a matter of fact,  Bowserism is dead beyond all possibility of resurrection  in Vancouver as_well as throughout the province. Great  heavens!    Have we not had years of it?���������Victoria Times.  One million dollars paid in commissions on  war contracts to men who do not even have to  help to pay the interest on the war loan!  Great glee of the government forces at the evidence of  their star witness in the Vancouver by fiction 'Investigation"-was iurned to stygian gloom last Thursday night,  when their star, Robert II. Gosden. was called before the  committee for cross-examination, for their flippant witness  of the morning was a changde man in appearance, becauso  he had at his elbow Detective Heather. In the morning  Gosden in the course of his testimony was telling a sensii  tional tale to damn the Liberal association, but he got in  a little too deep in the mire when he bombastically told of  having made an appointment in Vancouver with M. A.  Macdonald, the successful candidate, and then met him  in Victoria the following day, when he collected 850 from  him. Mr. Macdonald has taken the so-called investigation very cheerily, in spite of the evidence of jaii birds  and crooks the government procured in Seattle through  one John L. Sullivan, a nolorious saloonmnn of Seattle and  Vancouver, but ho thought it was time to call a halt when  Gosden declared he had obtained money from him. so  about 1 o'clock when Gosden was finishint.' his weird story  of allced plugging operations, the Vancouver member got  i,ut a warrant for his arrest on a charge of perjury.

An Interesting Explanation of How This Dreaded  Condition is Brought About.  ��������� You take out the garden hose in the spring', turn on the water, aud if the rubber has  got hard and brittle the tubing bursts and yrater spurts out in all directions.  The arteries of; the human body may be likened to small ru'bber pipes, which sjo  everywhere through the body and carry blood to the hands' and l'eet, as well as lo tho  nerves, muscles and vital organs.   They carry all the blood in the human system, and  it! this blood is burdened with the poisons left over when  the liver and kidneys are not properly performing their  filtering work, these poisons form a deposit on the inside  walls of the arteries.  The deposit tints formed gradually thickens  and  hardens the walls of the arteries.   The tiny blood vessel  of the liver are'.affected, and thence comes that'fatal  disease���������cirrhosis -of the liver.   The cells of the kidneys  become  starved for want  of blood,   and  Bright's disease gets its start.  In health'the arteries have the'elastieity  of rubber, and expand, contract, or elongate, as required by the demands of the  blood pressure. Hardened, the arteries  are like so much 'brittle rubber tubing.  The blood pressure comes on, the tubing  bnrstSj and the resulting blood clot on the  brain causes apoplexy.  It will he plainly seen that-the  cause of trouble is in tiie inefficient  condition of the liver and kidneys.  "When those filtering organs are  kept healthy and active, find tho  bowels regular in the removal of  waste matter, there is no chance  for such dreadful conditions as  hardening of the arteries bring  about.  As in all forms of serious disease, prevention is the only wise course to follow. You can positively depend on Dr. Chase's  Kidney-l/iver Pills to awaken the action of liver  and kidneys, and also ensure Ihe regularity bt:  movement of the bowels. It is only by the activity of these organs lhat: the blood can be kept  pure and free from uric acid aud other substances wit it'll' form deposits in tlie arteries and  at other points in the human system, causing  pain, suffering; and serious disease.  "When you think of the scores of common  ills, such as colds, indigestion, biliousness, headaches, backaches, etc.. which arise from a torpid  condition of these organs, you will better understand the reason why Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver  Pills are the favorite family medicine in many  thousands of homes. By keeping the liver, kidneys and bowels active they cure the common  ills of life, and prevent serious disease. One pill.  a dose. L'5 cents a box. a.ll dealers, or Kdmau-  son.

She was called upon to supply foodstuffs for Great Britain, her allies; and  for her soldiers, at the front, and tlie  necessity brought corresponding effort. She has a new and fertile soil,  and the weather conditions of the  year were ideal. Her government's  policy of encouraging tiie raising of  choice grain was never more-effective.  "This combination-gave.-the Dominion farmer-a consummation of his  dreams, "Two in one yield:" Nearly a  billion bushels of grain were produced, and, of this, 336,258,000: were! --in  wheat. Alberta, Saskatchewan, and  Manitoba grew 304,200,000 bushels, the  remaining ;!2,$58,000 bushels coming  from British Columbia, Ontario, Que-  *bec and the maritime provinces. Tlie  farms of Alberta averaged 36.16 bushels per acre, those of Saskatchewan  28.75 and those of Manitoba 2S.50.  ���������'This great harvest brought money  to the prairie provinces, and brought  it with a rush. Up'to November 21  the Canadian West received 2132,000,-  000 for its consignment of wheat.  "Canada's present prosperity, however, does not depend only on its land.

The crop  Is always a precarious one, but there  is a steady market . for the poppy-  heads. Belgium used to supply a proportion of the heads used in this country, but not sufficient for the loss of  her crop to cause serious shortage this  year. The price paid for poppy heads  is 12s to 15s per 1,000 for large size,  end Ss to 10s for medium.

Care With Well Water  Pollution  Comes From  Many Sources  and Precautions Should be  Taken  Melting snow, carrying with It in  solution much of the refuse and decaying matter accumulated during the  winter, constitutes a serious danger  to .the water supply from wells. Many  wells aro so constructed as to allow  surface water'to find its way around  th-) tops,' while in. others, particularly,  dug; wells, it seeps in through the  brick lining near the top. Where there  is any clanger of this pollution it is a  measure of safety to boil the water before it" is used for human consumption.  For lining dug wells reinforced concrete has been successfully used. Concrete may be made practically impervious to water, so that a concrete-lined dug well can be polluted only'from  the bottom.  The water supply on the farm is al-  ways an important matter, and '".oo  much care cannot be taken in its location and protection. The farm well  should-be placed where the surface  drainage from all possible sources cf-  contamination is away from the well.  If possible, it is advisable to provide  impervious floors with watertight  drains for farm buildings and stock-  pens. Under the same conditions concrete manure pits might well be provided not only to prevent the liquid  manure from polluting the neighboring soil but to save the manure. No  garbage, manure or rubbish should  be dumped into sinks or basins in  tlie immediate neighborhood, and such'  basins should be fenced off and kept  free from polluting matter. The house  should be provided with some safe  method ox sewage disposal, while slops  and garbage from the kitchen should  be deposited in tightly covered garbage cans and disposed of by burying  in the fields, burning, etc. The use  of privy vaults and -leaching or overflowing cesspools should also be absolutely avoided, as they are likely to  be sources of the worst contamination.  Need of Rotation  Very Few Farmers Appear to Follow a  Systematic Rotation  At dairymen's conventions, live  stock breeders' meetings, seed growers' conferences, and everywhere else  where farmers congregate to discuss  their problems wo have been hearing  speakers emphasize the advantages  of adopting some good system of crop  rotation, but the speech-making, on  tin's subject as well as on many-  others seems to have been in vain if  the first hand information obtained  by the commission of conservation,  and recently published in their report, is any criterion. Among the  100 farmers visited on P.E.I, only  one is reported as following a really  systematic rotation. In Nova Scotia  there were nine, in New Brunswiclc  19, while in Quebec, there were 200  farms visited and out of this number there were none following a short  rotation, but the majority of them  left the land in hay and pasture for  from six to eight years, after which  they would break it up and reseed'  again to grass and clover. In Ontario, among the 200 farmers visited,  there- were only eight following a  rotation which-could be called systematic. In tlie Prairie Provinces a  rotation including grass and hoed  crops is almost unknown.  It is difficult to obtain accurate figures regarding the annual loss from j  smut, hut that it is very great is i  acknowledged.' yet out of 500 farmers'  visited in Quebec and the Maritime}  Provinces only three treated their j  seed grain for smut. This is very;  regrettable since the treatment is in-'  expensive, simple and effective. Jn j  the Prairie Provinces neirlv every i  farmer treats for smut. j  Every year there is a complaint re-}  garding the difficulty in securing n>  catch of clover and grass. This is I  due, it is claimed, to tlio small j  amount of seed, sown per acre. On |  Prince Fdward island the amount of;  clover seed sown per acre is only two j  pounds; in Quebec, it is 'three1,  pounds: while in other provinces it.  is more, but even where the average!  amount sown is largest, it is found I  to be only about half of what it i  should be to secure results. Common I  red clover when sown alone should j  be seeded  at    the  rate    of 10 to 12i  Comprehensive  Plans   For the   Eeauti-  fication of Ottawa and Hull  Comprehensive plans for the beauti-  fication, development and replanning  J of the Canadian capital have 'been.presented, to parliament. 'Die -flnanca  minister laid on the table of the house  the report, of the federal town planning commission, which .was'appointed in June of 19.1.3, under the chairmanship of Sir Herbert Holt, to drtnv  up a plan for tlie beatititica'Jon of Ottawa and Hull, tlie location and architectural character of the public buildings, park systems/traffic and transportation arrangements/etc.  The commissioners, after two years  of very careful and expert investigation, have made elaborate recommendations for a federal district and  a federal capital rivalling in beauty,  convenience and impressiveness wh-if .  has been done at Washington or al(  any oilier capital cities of the world. '  The plans along which development  should'proceed are given, but there  is no estimate of cost, In this respect,  however, the coamrissioners declare  that the expenditure could run over  a series of years, and the return in  beauty and in the industrial econo-  I mies of cily organization would be  ' commensurate with the total cost.  The members of the commission  consisted of Sir Herbert S. Holt, Sir  Alexander Lacoste, prank Darling of  Toronto and R. Home Smith of Toronto, and the mayors of Ottawa and  Hull. The chief consultant on city  planniiig.wa.s Mr. E. H. Bennett, and  the consulting engineer, Mr. E. L.  Cousins.".-Under'them there has been  i an expert working staff, preparing tiie  ' detailed plans of improvement and a  comprehensive survey of Ottawa and  its environments.  The commission strongly recommends that nothing of tlie elaborate  nature suggested should be attempted  without first establishing a federal  district and securing for the federal  authorities adequate control of local  government, as has been done at  Washington. The proposed federal  district should extend from Chats  Falls, at the head of Lake Deschencs,  some thirty miles east of Ottawa, to  about four miles east of the present  city limits, and about ten miles north  and south from Parliament Hill.  Another main proposal is the establishment of a national park or  forest reserve in the Laurenfiau Hills  and on the slopes on the-north side  of the Ottawa River. An area of  from 75,000 to 100,000 acres, the report says, can be secured at comparatively small cost, -which'could-be  preserved for all time to the people  of Canada, and, which would afford  an excellent fish and game preserve  within a very few miles of tlie capital  for all years to .come.

They quote statements favorable  to the use of'alcohol, said to have  been -made by eminent physiologists at  a convention in Cambridge; among  those present was the celebrated Dr.  Michael Foster. They didn't teil.us  that that'was-long years ago, for Dr.  Foster was a distinguished man, advanced in years when I-was a student.  I doubt if they can point to one single  book on medical practice published in  the last ten years that does not definitely teach that alcoholic liquors  increase the liability to disease, especially consumption. Even tiie hand  hook prepared by military doctors in  1.9.11 for the guidance of tlie Royal  Army Medical Corp.teaches that, and  also that it lessens the efficiency of  the men and increases the tendency  to disease, and advises that it be not  permitted on the inarch  encounters.

Patiently they  Money-Making- Devices  Many New and  as  a   Res  Clever Devices in  Use  ���������ult  of the  War  Not since the great cycle boom a  quarter of a century ago have British  inventors made more money on patented devices than during the present  war.  One of the fortunate inventors of  the modern hand grenade, used so effectively j'n the ailied trenches, is reported to have netted upward of seven  hundred thousand dollars in royalties.  The inventor of tlie Gardweil machine  gun" is reputed to be richer by three  thousand dollars, in addition to a royalty of fifteen dollars per gun manufactured. The ingenious designer oil  the "JBors" periscope trench rifle, with  which the Australians are equipped,  has received a large sum for his patent  rights. A life-saving appliance in gas  attacks brought its owners orders  valued at two hundred thousand dollars. Numerous patents have been  taken out for adapting and simplifying  existing machinery for tho manufacture of munitions and other articles.  The majority of the successful war  inventions "were put to commercial  use before submitting them to the  government. For instance, a special  box for carrying hand grenades can  be used for other purposes when fhe  war is over, and tlie inventor already  has laid the foundations for a most  lucrative business. Some of tlie most  striking inventions are a non-inflammable substitute for celluloid, a substitute for glass, a process for treating  municipal refuse, removing the solder,  tin and chemicals from scrap, tinned  and galvanized articles, and for utiliz-  the prohibitionists' only asset. Oh, no.  not by any means; we have many serious charges against the liquor .-traffic.-of -which J shall mention only one.  The taxes actually collected in the  nine wettest states in 1011 were 60%  higher1 than in the eight prohibition  slates. Why should i Ue taxed to  care for the paupers, orphans and  criminals that they make? The license fees do not pay a quarter of the  expenses-they cause.  8. They say that domestic unhappi-  ness frequently causes drunkenness,  instead of drunkenness causing domestic unhappiness. Isn't that gall?

They say that one of the greatest evils confronting us .today.'is the  spread of the -monstrous theory- that  law can take the place of moral education. That is too bad, but where is  such a nonsensical theory taught?  certainly not in Canada or in any  English speaking country. A great  many laws are prohibitive, but they  seem to object to only the one that,  would prevent them selling booze.  11. They say that without booze  on which to'practice self-control, men  would "lose all sense of responsibility  and gradually sink down 'until they  become prohibitionists." I suppose  like.

The Canadians bounded forward. A  Prussian sentry started up to sound  tlie alarm, but lie was shot dead by  the officer.  The  Prussians   were  now  aroused.  Flares burst    out all along the line  and" revealed-'a  trench  full  of Prussian Guards.    Tlie    Canadians rushed  in, throwing'their bombs and bayonet-  j ing freely.    Their leader was already  * wounded.    The  Guardsmen had  been  j taken by surprise aud rushed in con-  \ fusion  from   their  dug-outs.

Farther up the line a machine gun  was just beginning to get dangerous 'when a well directed bomb sent  it into space. Hand-to-hand, tlie  Canadians exacted a heavy toll. They  carried everything before them, and  at the end could go no farther, as a  jheap of dead bodies and demolished  trench barred tlie way.  The  return  journey  to  the   British  trenches   had   to   be   made  across  a  bullet-swept- area.
