Work" on additions lo the plant, which will increase the output to above seventy  tons daily, is now being prosed,hut  tbe manager isnnable to say when  these improvements will be com  pleted.  'CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  An extraordinary meeting of the  shareholders* of the Pathfinder Mine  company was held at the company's!  office in this city on Wednesday.  It was decided to levy an assessment  of 1 mill per'share for the purpose  of raiding funds with which to prosecute development work. B. Lequime was added to the board t?t  directors. Previous to the present  week two cars of' ore had been  shipped to the Greenwood smelter,  and two more carloads were sent to  the same place this week. The re  turns for the first carload, the ore  of which was taken from the dump,  amounted to about. 8100. No returns have yet been' received from  the other shipments, but it is expected that the values w 11 run considerably higher.  The British Columbia Copper  company?s property at Copper  mountain; says a mining man, can  well be compared, when developed,  .to the mountain of low grade ore at  Bingham, Utah, a few miles from  the Mormon metropolis, worked by  steam shovels. Last year the mine  in Utah yielded, in round figures,.  150,000,000 pounds-of copper, 370,-  000 ounces of silver- and 35,000  . ounces ot gold. The cost of operating was $12,000,000 and the metals  sold for si?27,0o0,000. ��������� -  The Canadian Pacific and Great  Northern railways are hauling slack  coal from Fernie to the -coke ovens  at Michel , to bring -about an improvement in the coke situation,  through which four furnaces- at  the Grand Forks, Greenwood and  Trail smelters, now closed down,  would be able to operate. The coal  output at Michel has been cut down  since the -explosion some months  ago, with a consequent reduction in  coke output at that centre. It is believed that sufficient additional coke  will be turned out as a result of the  new arrangement to enable the  Granby company to operate all its  furnaces at its plant in this city.  R. R. Gilpin, customs officer at  .this port, makes the following detailed report of the customs receipts  at the head office in this city and at  the various sub-customs offices, for  the month of October, 1916:  Grand Forks  Z,-2M 36  Phoenix  :  963.44  Carson  730.17  Cascade   79.41  Total  $4,017:38  New Land Map  There has been issued   by the department of the interior a   new   addition of the "Land   and   Pre-emp  tion" map, which gives useful   and  teresting ihformation, corrected to a  recent date, with regard to the land  situation antl the   pre-emption   and  purchased homestead areas through  out   the   three   western   provinces.  Figures in green show   at -a  glance  the   number  of  quarter sections in  each township that are still available  for homestead entry,   also   the  area  within which   quarter sections may  be pre empted.     .Boundaries of Do  minion land agencies, and the   loca  tion of forestry and Indian, resetvts  are also clearly   shown.     All   town  ships which have been surveyed are  set out in a   distinctive   buff   coloring.    Copies of the publication may  be procured free of charge upon ap  plication io the railway lands branch  of the  department  of    the interior,  Ottawa.  It. 11. Stewart, general manager  of the Consolidated company, has  confirmed the report that the British  Columbia Copper company would  ship the product of its copper smelter at Greenwood to the new refinery  at Trail for refining. Shipments  from Greenwood may commence  within the next two or three days.  It is expected that the copper refinery will have an output of between ten and twelve tons a day of  the refined metal.  fifth International Egg  Laying Contest at Victoria  The following is a summary of results of the fifth egg laying contest,  held under the auspices of the department of agriculture at Victoria:  Duration of contest(inos)... 11  Number of pens.-.  -10  Number of birds  240  Number of eggs laid....... .      36,263  -Val ue of eggs 'laid ������1,030.88  Cost of feeding     ������430 45  Profit over eost'of-feeding.. . $594.34  Average price of eggs per doz . .31  Average   cost   to    produce  Thomas Crosby 8s  Seriously  Injured at Main Street  Crossing  A serious accident occurred at the  Main stret-t crossing of the1 Kettle  Valley railway at 12:30 p.m. yesterday, when the west-bound passenger train ran into a team driven by  Tom Crosby. As a result of tbe  collision Mr. Crosby sustained a  fractured skull and other injuries,  and he is now in tbe Grand Forks  hospital in a critical condition. Oue  of the horses came out of the wreck  with a broken leg, and it was neces  sary to destroy the animal. The  wagon was broken into fragments,  and the major portion of it was carried by the engine as far as the  Bridge street crossing, where the  train was finally stopped. The team  and wagon were owned by L. G.  Fowler, by whom 2ur. Crosby was  employed.  Today Mr. Crosby's condition is  reported as quite serious, he being  unconscious most of the time.

It might, in  fact, be inferred from the accounts  printed in our contemporaries that a  very great proportion of our popu-  tion is engaged in purloining poultry. Possibly a few old bens have  gone astray here, but such an oc  curence is liable to happen in even  the best regulated community if the  chickens are allowed to parade on  the principal business streets ai all  hours of the day and night. If poul'ry  owners, would keep their hens and  roostprs "where they belong, and  some newspapers would print facts  instead of drawing on their imagina  tion, a large number of honest people would not be suspected of being  chicken thieves.

Length of the Battle Line  "The length of the battle line in  Europe is made up as follows:  Western front, Nieup.orfc to the  Swiss border, 410 miles.  Italian front, from tbe border of  Switzerland to the vicinity of Trieste, 320 miles.  Eastern front, Riga to Bukowina,  720 miles.  Macedonian front, Avlona to Ka-  vala, 330 miles.  Transylvanian    front   32 1   miles.  Southern Roumanian front, 360  miles.  Total 2464. mile's, which is about  the distance in a straight line from  Victoria to Quebec. To this may he  added for the fronts in Asia and  Africa fully a sufficient number ol  miles to swell the grand total to  5000, along which millions of men  are striving and waiting for victory.

As tentatively outlined, the  project is described as one of the  biggest of its kind ever undertaken.  Through a subsidiary company the  Great Northern company' controls  water rights on the Chelan river in  Washington, and the plan, it is  said, includes the raising of the level  of Lake Chelan, and the establishment of the main power plant in  the vicinity.  Eliminate War Profits  As a preparation for peace in time  of war the manufacture of munitions  should    be   established   as government industries, and the   possibility  ot   private    profiteering   should   be  ended, says  tbe Toronto   Globe     A  committee composed oj   Lieut. Col.  Frederic   Nieholl,   David    drnegie  and Col. C. V. Hamilton considered  tbe   question   carefully     from    the  standpoint of preparedness, military  efficiency and economy.   The report  presented to the militia department  in February,  1915, strongly    recommended the   establishment  of   gov  emmental factories.    For the situation    immediately   confronting   the  Dominion tbe stimulation of private  factories is recommended,   and wifsBsrv'  that no fault can be found.   Dealing  with a permanent policy, the report  declares    that     "the     government  should    have   a   firm control of the  means of production,"should "form   -  its own' t-tandarcls," and should   not  be "at tbe mercy of manufacturers."  The necessity of having all-war materials   conform    to  imperial standards, patterns, and specifications   is  also   urged.    For  this   purpose an  armament board   is   recommended,  to work in conjunction with the ordnance committee   of Woolwich.      V  suggestion of economic value   looks  to the utilizing of Canadian   productive   capacity    by    having   the war  office procure from Canada a proportion of its annual requirements.  pro  mi  i;i i/uw,  Ascends the ladder    leaning   on    the  J.

A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS PER PLUG'  The Life of the Guns  F-rosion Sooner or Later Impairs ths  Accuracy of Fire.  The life of a'gun depends up On the  progress of erosion, which sooner or  later is certain to impair the accuracy of fire. ��������� Erosion is caused by the  action of llic explosive gases at high  temperature and pressure. According to the Iron Age, thc hot gases  cause a thin film of steel to absorb  heat. The film expands and becomes  set. Upon thc release of thc pressure, it contracts, which causes minute cracks that grow larger with  every discharge. As they increase in  size they form passageways for more  hot gas, and that tends to enlarge  them still further. Thc inner surface thus becomes roughened,- and  thc bands begin lo corrode. Finally,  the bore becomes so enlarged that  it allows the gases lo escape. Thc  shell docs not then acquire its proper  rotation, and its flight becomes erratic. All guns except small ones are  now constructed with linings in the  tube, which, when thc bore is worn  out, are removed and replaced by  'new ones. Thc cost of refining a gun  is approximately 30 per cent, of thc  cost of the gun. There appears ,to  be no limit to thc number of times  that a gun can be refined. Thc small  arms used in this country arc considered to be worn out after 5,000 to  7,500 rounds have been fired. Small  naval   guns  can  be  fired about  1,000  arc    regarded as  twelve-inch  and  guns are consid-  on one lining, of  times before they  worn out. Large  fourtccn-inch naval  crcd lo have a life, _  from 150 lo 200 rounds. Low veloe  ity guns, such as howitzers and mortars, have correspondingly longer  lives than thc high-velocity guns of  thc same calibre, because thc pressures they develop, and hence the  temperatures   are  lower.  Farm Grafters  Ravages of Parasites on Farm Animals Should Be Checked.  To graft is lo live at the expense  of someone else. If the one at whose  expense the grafting is done knows  of it and 'consents lo it, then no crime  has been done. If it is done without  his knowledge and consent, then it  becomes a crime���������graft in thc full  sense or meaning of thc word. Bui  in eithevcase thc grafter is what is  known  b"y another name���������a  parasite.  Thc parasites found on farm animals and plants arc criminal grafters  and should be dealt with accordingly.  When found, thc extreme penalties  of thc laws of war should be visited  upon them, for farming is a war as  well as a business.  If there.is any lime of the year  when thc chickens should be watched  carefully for lice and mites, the  worst grafters iii thc poultry business, it is right now. The warm weather stimulates their growth and, development. The chickens are rendered more or less indolent by the slim-,  nicr heat, so they do not fight these  pests as hard as on more comfortable days, nor do they rustic so_hard  for food. The hot weather is in' itself enough, for Ihcin lo have to fight  against 'wit'rlput having to feed these  grajtcrs .\vijf|F .tKtcir very life's blood.  Among 'tic'e'^rVcslock, chickens are  more apt toVSuft'cr from thc ravages  of parasites or grafters than any  others. And they should be watched  carefully and given every aid possible; especially the young stock,  which is now building the foundation for its future usefulness. Spray  their quarters thoroughly with a  strong insecticide. If you find them  constantly picking at themselves,  give their bodies a thorough treatment with some good and patient insecticide. For the good of your  -poultry business, get rid of the grafters.  Prussians Tired of War ^  After    Coming   Into   Contact     With  Britain's New Army, Are Glad  to Be Made Prisoners.  Philip Gibbs, of thc London Daily  Chronicle, writing from thc British  front after the smashing of the Prussian Guards, said: A large number of  prisoners were taken, and they came  straggling back over thc battlefield in  miserable little, groups. Some of!  them      carried      our     wounded    on  Dog That Won the V. C.  Jack, the Famous Pet of the Guards;  ���������   Is Honored.  One of the most famous regimental  pels that ever lived was "'Jack," who  was found, when a poor little puppy,  b ��������� a sentry outside St. James'- Palace. Snow was on the ground at thc  lime, and the dog had evidently been  ill-treated, so Ihe sentry, touched,  picked it up and fed it. Thc dog  eventually became very much attach  .    , , .i-ii ,i    ....; d to the sentry, whose regiment, the  stretchers or cm their backs, and oui   Scots Guard     a'doptcd thc������ tmi���������ral as  men carried  their wounded.  They were thc remnants of the  third Prussian Guards division, which  had been so utterly broken that it  no longer exists as a fighting unit.  Those who did not fall into our hands  have been withdrawn from the line.  Thc morale of thc men, as well as  thc lighting force, has been smashed.  Even thc officers admit that. They  have -no more stomach for the fight,  and several men with whom I spoke  today were frank in saying they were  glad lo be prisoners, to be safe, at  last, from the frightfulncss of this  war. Some of them told mc that :.f-  Icr leaving Valenciennes a few days  ago after our attack started they  were brought to Cambrai, and while  the officers were sent on by mo'tor-  cyclc they marched a long distance  through an unknown country lo thc  front. They did not know thc names  of thc villages they passed. Their  officers had no maps, and they had  an ominous feeling that they were  going to their doom, but the strength  of our artillery and its deadly accuracy of aim surprised them. They did  not know the English had such gunners.  Still more were they surprised by  the dash of' our infantry, as they  heard they had against them thc men  of the new army. Thc Prussian  prisoners belonged chiefly lo thc  Lehr Grenadiers and Fusiliers, the  All Guards division, thc 70th Jaeger  and the. 10th, 114th, and 190th regiments of the line. Some of them I  spoke to, were Poles from Silesia.  They are tall men of good physique,  well fed and some of them middle  aged and fathers of families.' They  correspond to the French territorials.  They -spoke of their wives and children and their dazed eyes���������for they  were just down from the field of fire  ���������lighted up at thc thought of going  home  again  after  thc  war.  "God send a quick ending to ��������� thc  war," said one of them, and he spoke  the words as a prayer with hands upraised.  a pel.  Jack went all through the Crimean  War, fighting tooth and nail by thc  side of his master and once going so  far.as to' save his life. One of the  enemy came at the erstwhile sentry  with his gun clubbed but Jack went  for him! Sad to relate, however,  Jack's master was killed at Inker-  man. When the regiment came home  Queen Victoria was so touched by  thc story that she had a miniature  Victoria Cross made, which she presented lo thc gallant little animal,  together with  the Crimean medals.  Tommy's French Bride  How Naturally Entente Marriage Alliances Are Fostered.  The War's History  Adopt the Metric System.  The nation is' in the mood for facing important changes. The war lias  taught us to drop many of our insular habits. If wc dropped our insular system of coinatoc, weights and  measures, it would he a great boon  to ourselves and lo all our customers  and correspondents throughout th,e  world, wherever the metric system is  in vogue. Our existing system is a  serious handicap lo British trade in  all the foreign markets. It is a  source of much exasperation and loss  of custom. The metric system is superior, from every conceivable point  of view. The day for stubbornly adhering to a worse, because it flatters  our insular pride, has gone by/ Great  Britain cannot afford lo begin thc  new regime with the old millstone  round her neck, and wc therefore  appeal lo illc government that when  they consider how to give effect io  the Paris recommendations, they  will boldly adopt the metric system.  ��������� London Telegraph.  Honor to Uruguay  Only Country    That Would    Send a  Ship  to   Rescue  Shackleton  Party.  Uruguay-is a little country, especially as South American countries  go, and few people in this part of the  world know much about it except  that it is somewhere along the upper  stretches of a big river, and that its  chief products, as the geographies  say, are cattle and revolutions. This  lack of information, however, probably proves more about our own  mental furnishings than it does about  the importance and, inconscqucntial-  ity of Uruguay.  ���������  Of all the nations not engaged iii  a great war and therefore desperately busy, only Uruguay has had  and promptly acted on the estimable  impulse to send a ship to bring  Shacklcton's men back from their  dreary prison on Elephant Island.  Uruguay's obligation to rescue  these freezing and starving sailors  and scientists is rather less than  more than the one resting on the  other larger and richer non-belligerents, for thc increase of whose scien-  lilc knowledge as much as that of  Great Britain those brave explorers  risked  their lives.  But it was Uruguay that had the  happy thought and is carrying it out  at its own expense.���������New York-  Times.  Empire Unity a Spiritual Unity  The    moving spectacle    which  the  passionate    loyally of the    Overseas  How Much Do We Know About the  Great Struggle.  How much do wc know about the  war wc imagine ourselves lo be seeing? If wc could read now the history which will be published 50 years  hence, we might not be able lo recognize the story. It may minimize  or leave out many of the things  which seem to us now lo be the  most important and dwell on events  wc have not even heard of. In this  age of light, much of the war is being  fought in the dark.  The Marquis of Crewe, on July 20,  1916, tells the House of Lords for thc  first time thai frohi December, 1914,  to September, 1915, war v.-as going  on upon the northwestern frontier of  India; thai in that time there were no  less than seven separate- attacks,  "some of a very formidable character." A mere attack of unorganized  and ill-armed tribesmen could not be  "formidable" lo thc government " of  India. What has been going on  there? The danger must be over, or  the government, which concealed it  so successfully, would not admit it  now in this way. It must have been  a "formidable" danger indeed when  no hint of il was allowed to leak out  to a nation which--was permitted to  learn of the failure in the Dardanelles campaign^ and the disaster in  Mesopotamia. It is plain to_-sce that,  though wc, the contemporaries, know  nothing of the war in India of 1914-  15, our children will be devoting  much attention to it in their study  of'history, in school.  ' A matter of much less significance,  but illustrating our contemporary ignorance, loo, is that of the postcard  received by the. American Board  from a-missionary nurse,in Turkey���������  apparently a mere note of greeting,  but containing mysterious references  to 'one verse in the Book of Job and  one-in the Psalms. On looking up  the references thc fact is revealed���������  cholera is raging and famine is at  hand. The ingenious nurse smuggled  the fact past the Turkish sensor on  the postcard. Hitherto the world has  remained in ignorance of it���������and of  how much else that is going on in  Turkey we'have no idea, for that  country has been masked from us for  months. As to Persia, our knowledge of thc. important events that  have been taking place there is practically at zero. If .wc could have a  glimpse at the school histories���������and  thc school geographies, too���������of 1936,  wc should probably be amazed to  find what momentous things can be  done in this age of light without the  world even hearing of them.���������Mew  York Times.  Frederick Palmer writes from the  British headquarters in France: One  of Ihe results of the presence of thc  British army in France is that a good  many British soldiers will take  French wives home with them. The  difference in language, far from being a bar -is an accessor}'. Mr. Atkins teaches Miss-France English and  Miss France ' leaches Air. Atkins  French. There is plenty  for the courtship lo develop. Frequently British battalions remain in  thc same section for months on end.  When the men have done their shift  in the trenches they return "in rest"  as the saying goes lo thc same villages where they wtfre before. Usually they have quarlers in French  houses, in a sense they become members of the community.  With the French men folk away,  Mr. Atkins lends a hand with any  heavy work that requires a man's  strength. Only today the correspondents saw a British soldier driving a  harrow. "A feminine hand docs some  sewing or cooking for him in return.  Thc romantic atmosphere is not lacking. When the Briton says "au re-  voir" to his. sweetheart and starts for  thc Ircnchc.s lie may never come back  and he is going lo light for France.  On Sunday afternoon thc girls arc  out in their best frocks, as they are  everywhere else in the world, and  walking with them along the roads  and lanes are men in khaki. Their  conversation is a mixture of French  and English. It is not romance  alone that leads the Briton lo marry  in France. He has learned lo admire  the thrift and cleverness of the  French woman and her industry in  taking the place of her fathers and  brothers   who  are  at   the   front.

A Seoul s duly and promise is ta  help' oilier" people at all limes. Some  Scouts, "in fact most Scouts, will go-  out of their way to fulfil this promise. A very interesting story, which  is lo thc^ point, is tofd of a Buy  Scout at Southampton, England. Aa  officer embarking for the front had  no time to make soiiic purchases,  which he had meant to in the townL  Hc gave a considerable sum of  money and-a list of commissions to  a Boy Scout serving under the embarkation officer, but thc ship sailed  before the Scout had returned. The  officer thought that that meant  "good-bye" to both money and pur-  cnases. The Scout, however, had the  ship signalled so that it was lo stop  iu Southampton Water; he commandeered the Port Officer's launch and  delivered the goods and the change  When offered a tip, he said: "Sorry,'  sir;   on   duty."  A prominent statesman once remarked that whatever pessimists  might say of our Empire, there is undoubtedly creeping into it a desire  lo do, each of us, something that  counts. And ihcrc is plenty of opportunity. In the Scout movement  there arc many openings for- such  service. Whatever his age or his in-  firiimy, whatever his standing or his  inability lo find time, there is -in  opening for every man in Scouting.  It may be as a commissioner lo administer a district, or as an instructor to those boys wishing to qualify  for the many proficiency badges, "ocas an occasional evening visitor to a.  troop.; "It is a grand work and sporting work by which you'can leave  your mark'behind you in the shape of"  lives saved for the individual 'as well  as for the nation," declared our  statesman.  _ The character of thc Boy- Scouts  movement will be best understood by  a glance at thc "promise" exacted :of  each boy as he becomes a member:  "I promise on my honor, first, to be  loyal to God and to thc King; second, to-lry to do a good turn daily  to other people; and third, to obey  the Scout law." He is accepted -by  the Scoutmaster, who says: "I trust  you, on your honor, to keep this  promise. You arc now one -of the  great brotherhood of Scouts." At  the very outset the boy is.'placed  upon his honor, the strongest sentiment in the heart of a healthy' boy.  His manliness is appealed .to and  properly approached, a boy's manliness seldom foils.- He is treated as  a man, and the result almost invariably is thai he acts as a man. This  is one of the great lessons taught by  thc Boy Seoul movement to both  parents and teachers. Thc Boy  Scouts in Great Britain arc at present regarded as.about as necessary a  part of thc war as arc ihe regular  soldiers. It lias been demonstrated  already in ihe history of this- move-  even- uncut that Boy Scouts make the best  soldiers, as many of those who began as Scouts arc now fighting thc  Empire's battles in Europe, and  above all it has been demonstrated-  that in fulfilment of their initiatory  promise they become good citizens,  loyal to God and the King, and doing good lo their fcllow-mcn.

Thc worldls potato crop in 1914  covered 30,000,000 acres, giving a  yield of 4,375,000,000 bushels.  ' Of thc total acreage Russia had  9,000,000 and Germany 8,367,000.  Germany led iu total yiejd; however,  with 1,674,000 bushels, 'against less  than one billion for Russia. France  had half a billion bushels, and the  United  Stales 405,000,000.  In yield per acre, Norway came  first with an average of 247 1-2  bushels; Great Britain and Ireland  second with "241, France third with  230, Holland fourth with 223, and  Germany fifth with 200. The avcr-  for Canada was 180, and for the  United States 109.  In Germany,'which produces well  over one-third of the world's potato  crop, only 28 per cent, of the yield  is used for human food, in normal  years.

When grain first heads out is the  best time to observe the amount, of  smut in it.  The smuts of grain arc carried  from year to year in the spores of  smut cither on thc surface or within  the kernels of grain. If a head of  smutted ., grain is observed .in ��������� thc  field and one takes pains to trace thc  head down to the plant from which  it comes and pulls up the whole  plant, he will find that all of thc  heads coming from that plant arc  smutty, and consequently will not  produce  grain.  Throughout the West, "there is a  loss .usually of from one dollar and  upward per acre df grain due to thc  effects of smut. ���������  ���������,  Practically every particle of this  smut could be controlled by treating the seed grain. Every farmer  knows s1io\y to treat seed grain for  shiut, or he can find out very easily.  The cost of treatment, labor and material included, will normally, be less  than five cents per acrc.v  Wc know of no other investment  that.will return as large 3. profit. We  arc sure that more farmers would  treat for smut if .they .would take the  trouble to examine their grain fields  when they are heading out and actually make "a count of .the', smutted  heads in." a given area:  ���������A good way to do this is to drop a  barrel hoop down in a grain field and  count all the stalks of grain within  the hoop, and then count the number  of smutted heads. If one does not  actually look for smut he may pass  through .a field every day in which  there is as much as ten to fifteen per  cent, of smutted heads and never notice' them.  OURCe OF HEALTH  [When the'Stomach Is Out of Order  ' thc    Whole    System  -Suffers.  Indigestion is one of ihe most distressing maladies afflicting mankind.  When tjie stomach is unable to perform the work nature calls for, thc  result is severe- pains after eating,  nausea, heartburn, fluttering of the  heart, sick headache, and often ' a  loathing for food, though the sufferer  is really- half starved.

You may be sure I am very grateful  for the wonderful relief these pills  have given mc. 1 know they arc also  a cure for anaemic sufferers, as an  intimate friend pi mind was badly  affected with this" trouble, and after  taking several boxes she was entirely cured."

The Fokkcr banked  over to the left, and something which  looked like a box fell out. The machine then rose, dived, and was last  seen spiralling down close to '.earth.

Parcels for Prisoners of  War in Germany Must Be  Very Sttongly Packed  The post office department has  been notified bv the British post  office that many parcels. sent  from  Canada to prisoner" of war in Germany are being received in London  in a damaged condition, so that frequently they have to be repacked  before they can be forwarded to  Holland for transmission to Germany. The British post office adds  that in most cases the damage appears to be due to the fact that the  parcels were inadequately * packed  by the senders.  The public are warned, therefore,  that parcels for prisoners of war,  unless they.are very strongly packed,  will probably arrivs in such a condition as to be of little or no use to  the recipients.  Ordinary thin cardboard boxes,  such as shoe boxes, and thin wooden boxes should not be used; nor  does a single sheet of ordinary  brown paper afford sufficient protection.

Those made of  corrugated cardboard and having  lids which completely enclose' the  sides of the box are the most suitable.  2. Tin boxes, such as are used for  packing biscuits.  3. Strong wooden boxes.  4. Several folds of stout- packing  paper.  The British authorities advise  that parcels for prisoners of war in  Germany must not be wrapped in  linen, calico, canvas, or any other  textile material.  Parcels posted in .Canada for  prisoners of war in Germany which  have not been adequately packed by  the . senders will not be forwarded,  but will be returned to the senders,  as the British post office has notified the department that parcels  which are inadequately packed  must be returned to the senders.

Grange, V.S., M.S., Principal  Producing Timothy  Vhc  Be  Farther North  a Crop  Can  Made to Grow the Better  the Seed.  The Department of Agriculture for  Alberta has issued a bulletin on timothy seed production that appears  timely. It gives the market demands,  extent of consumption, sources of  production and information -with  gard to soil preparation, seeding  harvesting, threshing and marketing.  The gist of the bulletin, however,  ' is the emphasis it puts on thc opportunity for the western seed-grower.  Canada requires 600,000 or 700,000  bushels, and imports two-thirds of  this from the States, where' it is  grown in $100 or $150 lands and pays  a seventeen and a half per cent, war  tariff. Why not produce it at home,  on cheap lands for an open or even  protected market and of a quality  that..itsclf can defeat competition?  Thc Alberta kernel is very plump,  bright and attractive.  In relation to the general work of  farm  seed production in Alberta  the  bulletin contains thc following mlcr-  .esting paragraph:  "Independent of local or temporary conditions which favor the production of seed there arc general and  fundamental reasons why the' special  work of- seed production over thc  whole scries of field crops should  become thoroughly established^ in  the'province. It is a recognized  principle in seed production that the  farther north a crop can be made to  grow bountifully and mature salis-  factorily the better constilulioned thc  seed is. This has already been demonstrated in Western Canada with  respect to the cereals. Alberta Red  advanced perceptibly on the Turkey  Kcc: from Kansas as .to size of kernel, quality of content and weight per  bushel. The Alberta oat has practically made a new standard of  weight per bushel fashionable for the  greatest of feed grains. Good seed  is thc first condition lo successful  production of crops. Alberta cereals  arc. ajready finding their way cast  and south through wholesale seed  houses. Thc value of seed is a  question of constitution depending  upon symmetry and perfection in  kernel. Thc recognized plumpness  of the Alberta timothy kernel is thc  latest evidence' of the fitting and inevitable survival of northern grown  seed. There is every reason to expect that wc shall have a general development in the special production  of seed in all field crops including  cereals, grasses and alfalfa. The  combination of advantages represented in cheap land, suitable soil and  climate and unlimited markets makes  failure in the work practically impossible under reasonable management."

Reinforcements    for    Princess    Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry  Are  Needed.  For    more  than  a  year    now  the  P.P.C.L.I, have been    receiving reinforcements from Canada in thc form  of ihe Universities Companies.     The  first of these Companies left for Eng-  rc-  land  in  May,    1915,  and  since    that  time five' Companies in all have been  recruited    up   to  strength    and  sent  forward    to    England    for      further  training, and arc now with the Princess Pals at thc front.  These have been exceptional companies in many ways.���������High authorities regarded the first Universities  Company as one of thc best trained  units that has left panada. The companies that followed also maintained  that high standard, so that the Universities Companies became well  known' and respected throughout the  camps in England. When-a draft is  needed for the P.P.C.L.I., thc officers  of that regiment arc always glad to  know that there arc men of the Universities Companies waiting in England  for  their turn to  cross over  One remarkable feature of their  splendid standard of training is that  they proceeded overseas and got to  the front more quickly perhaps than  any other unit. The first two companies were in France in less than1  two months after leaving  Thc companies that followed got  over just as quickly. Thc second  company started recruiting on May  1st, 1916, and was in France August  23rd, 1916.  Thc men of these companies have  not necessarily been University men  or graduates, "but rather men of that  type, such as bank clerks, business  men, architects, and so forth.. The  standard of men largely accounts for  thc fact that they have not required  'the long and tedious training essentia! to other units. There have also  been many qualified lieutenants in  the ranks of these companies, men  who have preferred to go overseas  at once in congenial company rather  than wait about in Canada for a possible  commission.  These men, many of them, have  received commissions on the other  side, and their practical experience  at thc front has added greatly to their  influence. It is rather remarkable  that' at���������least ten of the officers' of thc  P.P.C.L.I, arc men who have risen  from the ranks of the Universities  Companies.  These men, too, have shown that  though many of them come from  positions that unaccustom them to  fatigue-and hardship, can stand any  rough work as well as thc next man,  and perhaps a little-better. Whenever there js some task which has  to be done quickly and.well, it is always the P.P.C.L.f. who arc wanted  for the work.  On one occasion, when the Engineers gave an estimate on a certain piece of work as requiring six  weeks, they received a fatigue party  for the first two nights from the  Princess Pats. They then sent in a  report to headquarters saying that if  they could have the same fatigue  party for three weeks the work would  be done in that time. In the big  scrap at -Hooge the showing of the  Universities Company men under  very trying conditions was really  wonderful, and they all received the  unqualified praise of their officers.  Another Universities Company is1  recruiting at present in Montreal. Already a draft of fifty men and one  officer have proceeded overseas. Another draft will soon be sent, and  there is room for a few more  men on this draft.  Of  thc    draft    of fifty men  went across, five of them had passed  their  qualifications  for  the    rank  of  lieutenant. '    Several    more have enlisted since the draft left.  The company has very comfortable  quarters in the buildings of the McGill University. It has also the use  of the University grounds for training purposes. Thc mountain also,  just behind the grounds, forms a very  convenient and interesting place for  field work. Thc company also has  thc advantage of having headquarters in Eastern Canada and so avoids  the difficulties of transportation to  point of embarkation, when up to  strength.  Any enquiries as to enlistment and  overseas service should be sent to  the Officer Commanding 6th Universities Company, Molson Hall, McGill  University, Montreal. Transportation from outlying points is forwarded after applicants arc medically examined and declared fit. Recruits  will be welcomed in Montreal at any  time.

Every section, has its easy-chair  farmers who think they arc philosophers. They arc great on thc phrase  "Know thyself!" and they waste  hours meditating on their mental and  moral insides under the delusion .that  they are finding out about themselves  and" adding to the sum of human understanding.  That phrase "Know .thyself" goes  back to thc heathen gods; it was inscribed in gold letters over thc portico of. thc temple at Delphi. But it  is about as; easy lo know yourself  from studying yourself as it is to lift  yourself over a rail fence by your  own bootstraps.  There's Brown, a farmer .of broad  reading and high intelligence, a deep  thinker, who studies it all out and  cogitates, but somehow or other  doesn't get results and doc&.ft get  ahead. There's White, who has limited education and who never bothers about knowing himself, but who  gels into action the minute he opens  his eyes and keeps going until he finishes his day, and somehow he moves  into a sense of power and self-reliance and success that nobody can  doubt.  Farming by reflection is about as  useful as trying to grow crops by last  night's sunset.

Probably a surer  way to destroy a boy's confidence  in the water has never been-devised.  Thousands of boys are thrown in the  water without knowing how to swim,  and have conceived a fear of the water by this foolhardy method that  nothing has ever been able to remove. .No confidence is ever secured by a violent introduction, and the  father who thinks alorfg this line of  teaching his boy to swim is making  a fundamental mistake which he and  his boy will regret for years to come.  The wise father or teacher of swimming is he who wins his boy's confidence by first getting him accustomed to thc water in shallow places, and  then gradually have thc boy come to  him in deeper and deeper water until the young swimmer hardly knows  when he has ventured beyond his  depth. This is not thc "sissy" method of leaching boys how lo swim,  as some fathers like to think; it is  the only normal and sane way. It is  the father without a knowledge of  human nature who decides otherwise. ��������� From thc Ladies' Home  Journal.  For Burns and Scalds.���������Dr'.

Less Fatal Than Tuberculosis.  Several facts should be borne in  mind in connection with the epidemic-  of infantile paralysis, technically  known  as poliomyelitis.  Its infectiousness is the most important element in the situation. No  certain cure has yet been discovered..  Once thc disease is contracted, it has  to-run its course. -All the physician's efforts must be spent in taking  preventive measures. Thc infection  is probably caused by a virus which  penetrates through the nose and into  thc body, and indirectly brings .about  a deterioration of the nerve cells of  the spinal cord and brain. This, in  turn, causes the muscular paralysis  from which poliomyelitis derives its  popular name. This virus,'it-has been  well established, is present in the  nose and throat and respiratory organs of persons afflicted, and can then  be expectorated or breathed out.  Flies, bedding, clothing, anything-  that comes in contact with or near  an infected person, may become a  carrying agent. Unfortunately, the  presence of the disease is hard to detect in its early' stages, whilCthc patient is still moving about and coming in contact with other people. The  symptoms arc not well defined, but  often resemble those of typhoid. Thc  ^diagnosis is difficult, especially as  parents do not always realize that  their children are ill at all. Thus tlie  necessary precautions to prevent contagion cannot always be -taken. In  fact, there arc many "abortive" cases  which do not develop into acute poliomyelitis at all, but recover without  ever being detected. Such cases, like  typhoid "carriers," may be centres of  infection for a long lime.  . Happily, physicians no longer have  to depend entirely on symptoms.  Several real tests, not invariably  trustworthy,' have been worked out.  Examination of a suspect's blood  and of his spinal fluid reveal cell  conditions which, taken together, with  other symptoms, make it possible,  especially during an epidemic like  the present, to recognize a case with,  a good degree of certainty, even before the acute stage has'been reached. Also the test by injection of  spinal fluid from a .-..suspect into the  brain of a monkey will often establish the presence of an abortive case.  There ought, therefore, by these  new methods, to be no insuperable  difficulty in detecting / thc disease  and keeping it under control. The  great requisite is to recognize the  epidemic's seriousness and treat it  exactly as cholera or yellow fever or  diphtheria would be treated. The  health department has outlined a  system of quarantine which ought lo  be effective. The public, on its side,.,  must help as much as possible. Parents should report all cases of sickness at once. Children should be  kept away from all places where  crowds assemble. No chances whatsoever should be taken. In prevention lies thc community's safety, and  there can be effective prevention only  by early examination and isolation.  When all is done that can be, there  need be no excessive alarm. Mortality in poliomyelitis ranges from 14 to  22 per cent. Several children's diseases lake a greater loll of life. Of  the survivors, a large . percentage  recover from the paralysis and regain the use of their muscles. Poliomyelitis has the terror of novelty,  while tuberculosis continues its ravages without causing excitement. ���������  New York Evening Post.

The Paris Matin voices the complaint of a French prisoner, who by  a lucky subterfuge has^comc through  from   Minister  to   France.  "Wc have," he says, "witnessed on  -April 6 and 7 really inconceivably  dreadful incidents. The "men who  refused to go to' work in the factories' were savagely beaten with the  butt ends of heavy sticks or dragged  by the feet until they pitifully, gave  iiv and promised to consent to go. On  a complaint being brought to his notice, the colonel replied, 'It will be  always so whenever the men refuse  to obey.' You may imagine thc  dreadful plight of those wretches  forced to work, against their brothers  and  against  their country."  This is but another infamy which  goes to swell the already long list of  so many others, and on which it is  useless to offer comment. And what  ' can one say as to thc treatment inflicted upon the Russian prisoners  in Germany as-revealed by thc Journal des Dcbats from information  contained in the Russkoc Slova?  This is nothing short of thc most  abominable martyrdom -as attested  and vouched for by numerous recitals and letters and even illustrations  which have beCn supplied by sonic  escaped prisoners. Russian prisoners  arc . made to travel under such disgusting, and horrible conditions-' that  many die during thc journey from  inanition. and asphyxiation.. They  die, but their corpses" arc left stand-  . ing supported .by their comrades,  since 80 soldiers arc crowded in a  carriage which ..at the best could accommodate only 20, and thc journey  lasts three days and three nights.  ���������'On''arrival'at'.their destination thc  prisoners arc subjected to convict  labor, and abominably fed. The Germans compel them to work on the  manufacture' of shells and thc preparation of asphyxiating gases. They  arc driven in hundreds to digging of  trenches under the shrapnel and gun  fire  of  the  Russians. '.  If ..the prisoners refuse, they are  unmercifully beaten and starved and  condemned to solitary confinement,  with their right hand fastened with  chains to their left foot.- In this  pitiable condition they arc left for  weeks at-a. stretch, or they arc suspended" from  a torturing rack.  All this the poor miserable prisoners endure most heroically; it is  their best chance of avoiding still  greater infamies. There have been  hundreds of similar cases, and these  repeat themselves every day where  soldiers, in order to escape working  against their country, cut off cither  one or two of their fingers, or even  thc whole hand.  In' the German system of repression, special mention must be made  of the asphyxiating coffin. This is  a large tin box in the shape of a coffin, wherein thc condemned man is  placed after being suitably ��������� bound  and gagged, and thc lid is then hermetically scaled in order to-prevent  the influx of fresh air.  - The poor miserable wretch soon  begins to' stifle, and finally loses  consciousness, when the coffin is  opened'and thc patient is revived by  the administration of a restorative,  and then once more thrown back  inlo this infernal coffin of torture.

An investigation into, the increased cost of_.living attendant on war  conditions, and its direct bearing on  the housewives of Toronto reveals  the following facts:  1. Thc cost of living, so far as the  housekeeper's bills are concerned,  has risen from 30 per ccnL to 40 per  cent. l  2.-Dealers vouch for the fact that  they can scarcely remember a time  when the housewife's money circulated with more freedom.  3. The reasons for inflated prices  arc, for the most part, undoubtedly  legitimate, thc chief factors being  transportation, scarcity of labor and  closed  channels  of import.  4. On the other hand, war-time excuses arc brought to bear effectively  on credulous people by a few dishonest /dealers and that, in some cases,  shoddy and adulterated goods at  disproportionate prices arc on the  market.  5. No organized attempt has been  made by women to regulate the soaring prices.  6. A little more arithmetic on the  housekeeper's part in theydiffusion  of the householder's- money would  tend  to improve, conditions at home.  Naturally enough, the seller is hot  disposed to create an impression of  pessimism which would result in the  shearing' off of trade. At the same  time, the housekeeper of Toronto is  up against a problem -which calls for  hard thought first and then united  effort. Nor is it a question which  can be put off until tomorrow. The  rich woman, who is spending fr,eely  on luxuries and meeting increased  demands is indirectly embarrassing  the woman who finds it a struggle  to pay for the necessities of life.

The7 final  effects   of  After Two Years of Advances on All Fronts, the Reverses Will  Be Harder to Bear ior the German People Than They  Had Been for the Allied Countries  For the first time there has come  from Berlin an admission of the  truth as to the perilous situation of  the central empires. It is, not official,   but  it  passes  the  censorship  in  the dispatches of thc wholly sympathetic Karl von  VVicgand.  Mr. von Wiegand says the central  empires arc like a strong fortress  sformed and, assaulted on all sides  by besiegers. The fact is obvious to  thc impartial.'observer. It is interesting that in Germany it should be recognized and; confessed.

Professor J.  Russell  Smith,~of  the  University  of  Pennsylvania, has made a first hand  investigation     of     this     remarkable  archaeological puzzle, which    he describes  in  the  Century in an  article  entitled      "The; Dry      Farmers    of  Rome."    He says in part:  "Plainly the Romans were master  dry farmers to succeed under conditions worse than those under which  wc have failed. How did they do it?  Can'we not copy them?

Given one good drink, an olive  tree has shown its ability to survive  two rainless desert summers witli  only a single shower between. That  is why the dry farmers of Rome succeeded 1,500 years ago, and their  successors arc succeeding now, while  our farmers have often failed through  their dependence on thc quick growing,  quick perishing annuals."

A London wholesale provision  house which prides itself on filling j  all orders correctly, received a letter  from a provincial customer recently,  complaining bitterly of the very poor  quality of thc last two lots of eggs  supplied.  The reputation of the house for  never making an error seemed to be  at stake, but thc bright mind of the  junior partner found a way out of it.  He wrote:  Gentlemen: Wc arc sorry to hear  that our consignment did not suit  you; there was, however, uo mistake  on our part. Wc have looked up,your  original order, and find that it reads  as follows: "Rush fifty boxes eggs.  Wc want them bad."���������Tit-Bits.  telling  Ought to Be.

Some credit the "sacred union oi  parties and classes with this reform,  while there are certain proofs that it  is due to popular depreciation of personal conflicts between Frenchmen  while "the Germans arc still at Noy-  on." Thc "sacred union" has not  prevented disputes and provocations.  Two men contesting for a favorable place from which to witness a  review of troops on thc Esplanade  des invalides came to blows and oue  of than tossed his card to the other,  "rf you arc so eager to fight,*' cried  a bystander, "why don't you do as  those boys did?" pointing to some  armless and legless soldiers lined up  before the troops to be decorated,  Two young men in a popular cafe  exchanged sarcasms, followed by insults, blows and an exchange oi  cards.  "To Verdun, with tlicin!" cried llic  spectators. "Put them out!"  Thc manager threw both of them i  into the street, where thc idlers jeer-!  cd litem until in common defense;  they made up their quarrel and walk-j  ed off together. j  There arc two hypotheses regard-1  ing the duel after the war. In sonic!  cases the disputants have both been I  combatants in thc great war and will i  find it ridiculous to make a show of  courage against each other after hav-{  ing already shown it together many j  times   against   a  common   enemy.  If they arc not both combatants,  they will, one or both of llicm, have  been heroes of the war, to whom  public opinion will say* "No! 'Ko  fighting!

"Eh, nion, it was hell, but it was  grand," he declared. "We've got a  move on at last, and arc paying the  Huns out. For over a week our guns  have been letting- rip at them.
