 .*>->  ���������..v^Vuii//.  ative Library  m  and  Kettle Valley Orchardist  FIFTEENTH YEAR���������No   4  GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAH  11  AIMS Of THE  PATRIOTIC;FU  Editor Grand Forks'Sun.  Grand  Forks, Nov. 22,   1915.���������  Mr. J. Nation was here on   Friday,  the 12th   instant,   and  gave an address   on   the. Canadian    Patriotic  Fund.    As the  meeting   at  which  that address was given was not very  well attended, I wish to call the attention of the  readers of your paper  to a few salient points, in it arid to  make a few observations of my own.  The Patriotic Fund was  inaugur  ated to supplement the   pay  which  the government ol Canada allows to  those who joined the colors ..so  that  their  dependents  might   not suffer  priva'.fori and want, but   be   main-  taijed   in   comfort.    A scale of al-  1 iwances was adopted, a larger sum  being allowed for western  than   for  eastern Canada     Every community  in Canada was  asked to contribute  and aid, so tbe average contribution  for  the year  ending  September 1,  ^1915, was about 70 cents   per   head  of the population of the  Dominion.  Some communities gave a good deal  more than this, and some  considerably   less.    The   demands   on  the  fund have greatly  increased, and it  is estimated that at least $7,500,000  will'be required for tbe forthcoming  year.    That estimate was  made on  the   basis  of. 200,000 troops, and it  has since been decided   that Canada  is to send 250,000 troops   instead of  200,000,   so   that   probably    more  money   will   be  required.    British  Columbia's share of   that amount is  $750,000, and every   community  is  expected to do its share.    It will be  a gross breach   of faith if we do not  live up to the moral obligation upon  ";us   to   support   the   dependents of  those   brave   men  who  have taken  their lives in their hands  and  gone  forth   in  the -battle of freedom and  civilization against the Huns.   More  than that, it  will   hurt   recruiting,  for men  will  not   go so willingly if  they are not assured that  their   dependents will be cared for in   their  absence.  Thefund has been and is being  very carefully and economically ad  ministered. Mr. Nation- told us that  the'interest received for funds in the  banks from time to time had been  sufficient to pay all administration  expenses Irrespective of interest, it  ' has only cost 65 cent." for every  hundred dollars collected to pay all  expenses connected with the fund.  Investigation or relief committees  have been appointed all over the  Dominion, and these committees  are furnished with copies of the  rules and bylaws of the association,  and they investigate every case in  which applicatioh for money for de  pendents is made before paying any  over.  This association has the sanction  and support���������material support, too  ���������of all the great men of Canada. It  has already helped a great many,  but the need is greater than ever before. A branch has been organized  in Grand Forks and   canvassers will  ! Mr. Nation, Grand Forks has p to  the present received more money  from tbe Patriotis Fund than it  has  ; paid in. It made a fine response to  the Red Cross appeal, and the  women of Grand Forks have done  and are doing a splendid work. The  rest of us���������not including, of course,  those who have enlisted���������have  hardly done our duty. The situation is serious. Sir George Foster  said-in a recent address that. the  empire���������ourempire:���������was in peril.  Many of us can not very well go to  the front, and the only way we can  help the cause is by giving our  money and assuming our share of  the burden caused by the war. The  minister of finance for the Dominion  B iys there is no better way of doing  it than by giving to the Patriotic  Fund. It is'up to every one in the  light of bis honor; conscience and  patriotism to do what he can, and I  trust this fund will-receive, as it de -  serves, a vnry generous support from  the'people of Grand Forks and vicinity.

The old officers and  directors  were.returned, and an   ice  commit  tee   consisting   of  Wm.   Bonthron,  Ben Norris and J. D. Campbell was  chosen.    The club decided  to offer  a trophy for competition at the an  nual bonspiel of the Boundary Curl  ing  association, which will  be held  in Phoenix this winter.

PROVINCE'S GIFT  In response to.the'-appeal of Lord  Lansdowne, the president of the  British Red Cross society, through  his honor the lieutenant governor,  that collections should be taken  throughout the British empire on  the 21st day of October last in aid  of the wounded soldiers, over $9,300  has been subscribed by British Columbia. Only a few points throughout the province failed to acknowledge in any way the demand made,  and it is possible that some explanation or reply may yet be forthcoming.

A well made,  invalided Men Will Receive  Pay Until Pension Starts  Two important decisions have  been mad** by the hospital commission at its meeting in Quebec City  in regard to. the return ot disabled  soldiers. They will not be permitted  to go home immediately, but will be  placed for a short time in one of  convalescent homes, so that tbey  can be certain of medical care. The  men too often go home direct and  neglect to take proper care of them  selves. As the pension the men receive is based upon the nature and  extent of the permanent injury, it is  felt that the men should receive for  a while at least the best medical care  in one of the government   hospitals.  There has been considerable complaint over the fact that invalided  men's pay cease as soon as they  reach Canada, while there is often a  considerable delay before their pensions are arranged.

This extraordinary demand for the manufactured goods created a big demand  for the raw furs, and stocks in tbe  hands of the raw fur dealers are  practically closed out. This will  unquestionably create a big demand  for the November and December  fresh caught goods and, no doubt,  make the trapping of fur bearers a  very profitable occupation."  20.00  17 55  22 25  52 00  194 80  126 51  119.70  52 00  11.00  66.50  25 00  17 50  11.00  160.11  340 10  57 25  3 00  67.46  tions.

The council decided  not to construct the walk until next  spring.  The chairman of the health and  relief committee reported that the  sceptic tank at the Royal bank was  in bad condition, and the clerk was  instructed to notify the bank to  have the same repaired. The-chairman also stated that applications  for charity had increased during the  past month, and. he had granted  free water to one family.  The bill of the Grand Forks hospital for a city charge was ordered  to be paid.  The Carmi mine is being pumped  out for examination by an expert.

A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS PER PLUG  by  Valuable  and   Heroic   Part  Taken  Officers and Men in Defence of  Empire  Tlie responsible part   played'by.the  .  Mercantile -Marine in the present war  was discussed in an address delivered  the .other day at the Sailors'.Club'in  Montreal" by  Captain   Walsh,  Marine  Superintendent ot* tlic CP.R. Atlantic  Steamsips. . "At    one.     time,"   said  Captain Walsh,    "it    was considered  that ��������� on ��������� account  of  the  officers  and  men  being  distributed    all  over  the  globe, the number procurable at short  notice would  be so  small that  their,  value as a naval reserve would not be  very great.    On this account,.a short  service  scheme  was  created    in  the  naval service, from which men passed  into   the   Royal   Fleet    Reserve,  and  through it an immediate reserve was  always available.    It was found, however, that directly the R.N.R. was called upon,  they hocked  to the rendezvous, in such numbers 'that it was difficult to place thtm all.    Not only did  they  return  from  ships  all   over  the  world,  but  also  in  very  large  numbers     from positions  on shore, even  from farms on  which they had 'settled  in Western Canada and other places.  Of these 'men, however, it may be said  they   only   did.   their   duty. -'.-That -is  quite true, but it is the way In which  they did it that calls for special appreciation,   and they have earned the  right to special consideration after the  Avar.  "The British admiralty were considerate, and, where possible, allowed tlie  masters and officers to remain in their  ships. ' In a general way the'steamship owners did not suffer so badly as  was generally expected. When we consider there are probably over 2,000  captains and officers of the Mercantile  Marine, and, including men employed  in the trawlers.and other.-mine laying  and mine sweeping operations, considerably over 20,000 men with the work'  of the ocean-carrying passenger and  freight service going .on as usual, it.  is indeed an honour to belong to a  service that has done such excellent  work for the cause of Right, Justice  and Freedom.  "I can readily understand how men  feel. They, like ourselves, would  rather be dead than be ground under  llie heel of a relentless foe. and forced  to learn the 'Goose Step.'  ''Tlie work done by the armed merchant   cruisers,: whose     crews, were  mostly R.N.R. and Mercantile Marine  men, also calls for special praise-   In  September last the SS. 'Carmania' and  "'Cap   Tralafgar'   met  in    fair    fight,  evenly matched.   The 'Carmania' was  commanded  by  Captain  Noel,.   R.N.,  with  Captain   Barr,    second  in  command.    The .Briton's skill at his own  work   secured them the victory in a  little    over    one hour's  battle.    The  'Carmania'  was  holed    in    over ,'!00  places,    being    hit  by    almost    100  projectiles.    Lieut. Murray, late chief  officer   of  the   Canadian  Pacific   SS.  'Lake Manitoba,' was  working a gun  op the forward decks, when'a projectile struck the forward winch, a splinter from which struck him down, injuring his spine.    Tie    is one of the  many whom  this dreadful    war    has  ruined.    Captain Barr was gazetted a  Companion of the Order of the Bath.  "Over 80 vessels were commissioned  as armed cruisers.   The 'Otranto' was  with    the    'Monmouth'    and    'Good  Hope' under Admiral Craddock.    The  'Orama,' a ship of    the Orient Line,  was with one of the vessels that cornered the    'Emden.'    The    P.   & O.  'Macedonia'   was .with  Admiral  Stur-  dee at the Falkldiid Island fight and  helped to     sink tl)e 'Baden,' and the  steamers 'Isabel Transport' and    the  'Empress   of  Japan,'   of   the   CP.R.  o-Mi-inifi i u"e]1 and faithfully. The German sub-  Cllllld marine   did   not  frighten  them;   they  knew they had a duty to their country,- to  their homes,  to  their wives,  their children and their parents, but  ���������tliey  put their  country's   honor  first  and    left home and  friends,  to man  their ships, and  so  transport troops,  ammunition, horses and foodstuffs the  world over,    not to England    or tha  British Isles' only, but also to the several, distant  parts  of  the    world- in  which the empire and her Allies were  fighting for their God, their country,  and theirflag.   Apart fronrall this, the  masters, officers and men of the Mercantile Marine ihave done some excellent effective fighting work.   Take the  case of the SS. 'Thordis,' Captain Bell,  when chased by a submarine, instead  of  running  away,   turned    his    ship  round    and rammed he,r, leaving; one  less pirate to prey on unarmed helpless ships, carrying in some cases.between  1,500  and   2,000  . women    and  [ children, whom the Huns Avould ruthlessly, murder without giving them a  chance for their lives- ;  "The officers aud men of the Mer-  '������������������cantile Marine take great pleasure in  j knowing that, the admiral. Sir John  Jellicoe, in supreme command afloat  of His Majesty's Naval Services is the  son of a ship master of the '��������� British'  Mercantile Marine ,and one who gave  the people whom he served for a long  number of years, extreme satisfaction  and who always stood out as a fine  example * of the British Mercantile  Marine ship master.    . V.  "Many of the great steamship companies of today were built up from a  very small .beginning by sailors themselves, t'he Allans, Johnsons and others  too innumerable to mention are very  notable examples.  "Before closing, J would quote one  more notable example of the bull dog  pluck and devotion to duty-whichwas  shown by" Captain Parslow and his  officers while in the 'Anglo-Cali-  fornian,' carrying horses for the British admiralty. "The ship was overhauled by a German submarine, but  the commander refused to surrender  and endeavored to out-manoeuvre the  pirates. For four hours the U boat  bombarded the defenceless 'Anglo-  Californian,' and Captain Parslow was  ���������killed. Thereupon, his son, who was  an officer under him, assumed .command and piloted the ship to Queens-  t'owri.  "The I en minutes' notice, which  seems to be the established time given  to abandon a ship and take to the  boats, is ridiculous, as it would take  fully an hour in fine weather with all  boats ready,1 to get say 1,500 women  and children into them. If the pirates  still carry on. even confining them--  selves to the sinking of ships after  due warning is given, the promise to  the United States would be of no  value, unless it was clearly understood  that, time sufficient to get all into the  boats before destroying the ship is allowed.  "During the South African war, the  Naval Seaman earned the title of  'Handy .Man.' How true it is now  to say the Mercantile Marine Seaman  is also worthy of this title, which is  so expressive and applicable after a  review of al the circumstances already  enumerated-  "In conclusion, as a sailor, Iamab-  solutely satisfied that, come what  may, the Mercantile Marine can be relied on to do its part to the bitter end,  as they wish lo serve no other flag  and desire only, a complete wipa-out or  absolute victory, which latter they are  confident will  be theirs."  Western Canada Exporting  Large Quantity of Fish  irket  First Car Lots Sent to Chicago M  From Lesser Slave  Lake  Notable developments    are    taking  place this fall in the fisheries of Western  Canada.    The  a'nnouoncement. is  made   by  the   Grand    Trunk   Pacific  authorities that White Fish is now being shipped in car lots  from  Lesser  sSlave Lake/ in Northern  Alberta,  to  Chicago.  The construction of the Edmonton,  Durivegau & British Columbia Railway northward from the main lino of  the G.T.P. l.as made this lalfe accessible and. in its waters are great  numbers of fish. Two companies have  been formed to carry on the fishing  in the lakes and the Canadian Express  Company is being called upon to''supply special refrigerator cars to take  the fish to Edmonton and thence by*  way of the Grand Trunk Pacific to  Winnipeg and by. connecting lines to  Chicago.  A great distributing point for:fresh'  fish, the Chicago market states that it  can take all the white fish that can be  sent - from Western Canada and the  transportation companies, it is expected, will have to enlarge their arrange-'  mentsnext year to. meet, the growing  traffic.'.;'  Chicago is also taking from Canada  large quantities of fresh Prince Rupert halibut and the fishing industry  is very brisk at the new Pacific coast  port.������������������ Over fifteen minion, pounds of  fish handled in the month of August  was Prince Rupert's record. While  the .salmon end of the industry was  the largest part of the business",-halibut, showed..": up well, with- '2,106,400'  pounds landed at this port. The salmon pack for the month represented  12,899,700 pounds of fish, representing  at a modest valuation well on for  three-quarters of a million dollars. Of  the salmon catch, 4,060 hundredweight was used fresh or shipped  fresh. There are about 223 hundredweight that was mild cured, while the  remainder was canned. In the canning  "process, 149,527 cases were taken care  of during August. There were 14,000  pounds: of cod taken and used, fresh-  and flounders represented 1,000  pounds.

TheTurks, he says, clung to the bill  with the utmost determination, and  when they were thrown out of their  trenches, would fight their way back  again, accepting terrible losses unflinchingly to regain the lost ground,  with the result that when the trenches  finally were captured they were filled  with Turkish dead. It took three days  to oust the Turks, ' and the ground  around, hesays, is still thickly strewn  with their bodies and with British  soldiers who fell in the assaults.  It is competed, declares the correspondent, that the Turks lost 5,000 men  before they surrendered the position-  The Indian brigade and tho Con-  naught Rangers took part in (he fighting, with Australians and New Zoa-  landers.  The correspondent exprest.es (he  opinion that the Turks will not attack the Anzac positions ' again af-  te.v the terrible losses they sustained  in previous attacks. Thsy did succeed, he adds, in sweeping two British battalions off the ridge that previously had been .won by the New  Zealanders, but when they got across  the crest into the ravine below they  came under the firc^of British machine guns.  "They came down in thousands,"  said a staff officer of the New Zealand  brigade; "they went hack in hundreds," the correspondent's story continues. Machine gunners, he says,  claim that five thousand were killed.  Danger to this part of the line, the  correspondent thinks, could only come  through physical overstrain of .the  troops, as they have made Ihe position virtually impregnable, and even  supplies for the men are now taken  up through saps which run right down  to the beaches, while the sides of the  hills are covered ������������������with dugouts.

U. 1074  The Freedom of the Seas  The  phrase    "the   (-freedom  of the  seas" has been  widely used  by German and pro-German propagandists in  their  efforts  to  discredit    the allied  cause; it is based on the false assumption   that  England  with   her   "Marin-  ism" is tyrant of the seas.    Such efforts cannot succeed    for the simple  reason  that  their object  is  baseless.  They could succeed only if other nations felt our "tyranny." Our fleet is  not  to  us  a means  of    "ruling    the  waves," any more than our army is a  means  of ruling the  land. Both are.,  and are being used, as, instruments of  the freedom of Europe and of the freedom of the world.    Save for the exploits  of " the    German    submarines,  most of which are murder, not war,  our Fleet, has given peace to the seas.  When the Germans demand "freedom  of the seas"  they  mean  the  kind of  freedom   which   their  submarines   fitfully  enjoy   under   the  sea.   It   is   essentially of tbe same nature us that  freedom which their soldiers enjoy in  Belgium,    For us the freedom of (he  sea  is  a condition'of our existence:  and, while we continue to exist as a  nation, we shall no more barter away  that  freedom  by  international  agreement or pacifist, convention than a free  man will sell himself into slavery. But  for our sea power, wielded as it has  been and will be wielded, the freedom  of  Europe   might  by   this   time   have  ceased lo be.

The committee appointed by Lloyd  George numbers seven. Sir George  Newman, chit-i medical officer of  the board of et'.uc.ition. will be the  chairman. The other members chosen  are Sir Thomas Barlow, physician-  extraordinary to King George; Dr.  "Arthur Edwin Boycott, professor of  pathology, University of Manchester;  Dr. Leonard Ers.kinu Hill, director of  the department of applied physiology  of the National Health Insurance Institute of Research; J.

The committee is apparently the  outcome of the recent discussion in  the British Association for the Advancement of Scienc concerning the  best methods of increasing the productivity of workmen. In this discussion" it was strongly contended  that the desired improvement could  not he attained by prolonged hours  of hfbor. but rather by th; adoption  ot periods ot rest' and relief from  the continuous, nervous strain and by  nourishing food and healthful recreation.

Sergeant James Sommers of the  same battalion won the Victoria Cross  at tho same fim*-*. "When, owing to  hostile bombing, some of the troops  had retired from a sap," says the report in the London Gazette; ''Sergeant  Sommers remained alone on the spot  until a party brought up bombs. He  then: climbed over- into the Turkish  trench and bombed the Turks with  good effect. Later on he advanced into the open under very heavy fire and  held back the enemy by throwing  bombs, into their, flank until a barricade had been established. During  this period- he frequently ran to and  from our trenches to obtain fresh supplies of bombs."  What Second Lieut. Herbert James  of the Worcestershire Regiment did:  to win the cross in the Gailipoli operations   is   thus   described:  "On the 28th June, 1915, when a  portion of the regiment had been  checked, owing to all of the officers  being put out of action, Second Lieut.  James, who belonged to a neighboring  unit, entirely on his own initiative  gathered together a body of men and  ied ���������them forward under .heavy shell  and rifle fire. He then returned, organized a second party, and again advanced. His gallant example put fresh  life into the attack-  "On the 3rd. of July in the same locality he headed a party of bomb-  throwers up a Turkish communication  trench, and, after nearly all his bomb-  throwers had been killed or wounded,  he remained alone at the head of the  trench and kept back the enemy single handed till a barrier had been  built behind him r.nd the trench secured. He was throughout exposed to  a murderous fire."  It was between Cambra and La  Bassee, in France, on,.Aug. ?> of this  year, that Second Lieut. George A. B.  Rochefort of the Scots Guards displayed "most conspicuous gallantry" and  won the Victorii* Cross.  "At 2 a.m. c German trench mortar  bomb landed on the side of the parapet of ��������� the communicating trench in  which he stood close to a small working party of his battalion. He might  easily have stepped back a few yards  round the border into perfect safety,  but, shouting to his men to look out,  he rushed at the bomb, seized it, and  hurled it over the parapet, where it  at once exploded.  '*''  "There is no doubt." adds the official report, "that this splendid combination of presence of mind and courage saved the lives of maiiy of tho  working party."  The wish is expressed in the London papers thr.t some enterprising  film producer turn out a series of moving pictures depicting various exploits  by which the Victoria Cross has been  won.

Government Expert Gives Some Practical Advice on the Subject  The division of chemistry of the.  Dominion department of agriculture  has issued another of that useful series of circulars by Dr. Frank T.  Sliutt, Dominion chemist. This ,one,  Circular No. 8. deals with* "Manures  and Fertilizers," and, like all the  work -of the doctor, is at once explicit and practical. The firse section  is devoted to a description of experiences at the central and other experimental farms, and the second is  devoted to. a summary and to advice  that if followed cannot help but benefit the farm and profit the follower.  Here are a few sentences that illustrate the conclusions arrived at and  the counsel given by Dr. Shutt:  ��������� Barnyard manure is the most effec-  live of all fertilizers.  . The liquid portion ot* the manure is  the most valuable.  - 'Use sufficient litter   in the stables  to absorb the liquid.  The amount of manure on a farm  beiiig insufficient, frequent light  dressings are advisable, - instead of  larger ones at longer intervals.  The manure is most advantageously  applied for the root or corn crop in  the rotation-  It is not wise to "bury" the manure,;  a "shallow plowing under is more advisable. ���������  Rational farming involves a rotation of crops.  Such, in brief, are a few of the  conclusions arrived at by Dr. Shutt,  but to get real benefit from the circular, application should be made for  it to the Publications Branch, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.  Superiority   of  Silage  Over   Dry   Feed  For Cows  When clovcr������liay is worth $12 to  ?15 a ton, silage easily has a food  value of .-Jo per ton. As a matter of  fact, many experiment stations have  found, that it is worth even more  than this, but with feeds at the prices  which we must pay for them at present we may assume, that^the silage  would return us that much per ton.  With a crop of fifty bushels of corn  per acre, or ten tons of silage per  acre, we may consider that wc have  -?50 worth of feed. One acre of corn  siiag'J properly cut and properly placed in the soil will supply enough feed  for a cow at the rate of forty pounds  of silage daily for 500 days; five cows,  100 days; or four cows, 12a days. At  the same time it 'Occupies less space  than an equal amount of hay.  An experiment conducted at the  Kansas station shows that silage reduced the cost of producing butter Cat  from ;!0 cents to 21' cents. In other  words, there was a saving of !i cents  per pound. The herds in this case  were of sufficient size to give reliable  data and eliminate t-.ie individuality  of the cows- The lot which was fed  silage gave seven pounds more milk  in the summer and 95.ii more iu winter per month than did the herd which  was fed dry feed. The butter fat was  also increased by 4.5 pounds in summer aud -J.(> -pounds in Avinter. Tlie  difference in the cost of feed was  even more marked. The- silage-fed  cows saved 00 cents per month in the  cost of feed-  At the Ohio station silage produced  milk for 68 cents per 100 pounds and  butter fat at 13 cents per pound. The  grain ration produced milk at- $1.05  per 100 and butter fat for 22 cents  per pound. The net profits were  $5.86 for the silage aud $2.46 for the  dry feed. The profit from the -silage  was more than two and one-half  times that of the dry feed.  Steel-lined���������an exclusive Remington-UMC feature.

Weed Seads in goi's  Some Important Methods of Weed  Control  The presence of weed seeds in soils  under different systems of culture and  cropping should be suggestive to  farmers. An investigation being .conducted by the seed branch, Ottawa,  S'hows a sod field which had been in  hay or pasture for six years to contain 19,184 weed' seeds in a surface  square yard one inch dep, S,012 in  the same volume of soil at a depth  from "two to three inches, and 1,40!) at  a depth five to seven inches. Another field which had been under a  good system of cultivation and rotation contained -1,''S4 weed seeds in the  .surface soil and 4,020 in each of tiie  ether depths. The. concentration of  seeds in-the surface layer of the sod  field may be explained by weeds being  allowed to reproduce themselves from  year to year. Information as to the  percentage vitality of weed seeds at'  the- different depths is not yet complete, biit a large number of the surface seeds in the case.^of the sod field  are vital. This investigation indicates  the importance of. short rations,  good cultivation ard prevention of  weS'ds going to seed. Other important  methods of weed control are summer  ploughing of sod ands followed by  frequent "autumn cultivation to destroy growing weeds, thorough cultivation during the growing season of  hoed crops, and after harvest cultivation of cereal crops which have not  been sodded down.���������Seed Branch, Ottawa.

War has literally been an avenue of escape for  them. Their training has taken them  into the open air, has shown them the  physical blessedness of constant muscular activity, has bred in them a distaste for the confinement and boredom  ot" a sedentary existence, perched upon an office stool. These men will  never willingly go back to the life of  the city, from which they have been  suddenly torn���������to realize as by a  semi-miraculous revelation, its tiresomeness, its damaging effects upon  health, its inadequacy for the needs of  a sound body.

An Interesting Book  The Sun has received from W. H.  & L Collingridge,  London,  a  copy  of the English translation of "L'Action   de   I'Armee Beige," a volume  recording the doings of the   Belgian  army fiom its  mobilization on July  31, Jf9l4, to the end of December in  that year.     This  work is of intense  interest and of the   greatest   impor  taiiCd at the present time.    On reading   this   report, sober in tone, and  strictly   confined to facts, it   is   ap  parent that from the first ' day   the  Belgian   military   authorities    had  conceived a plan of defence   strictly  appropriate to the conditions of  the  threatened    conflict,     and     never  ceased  to  carry   its realization into  effect with   firmness and   unity   of  action.    In view of   the  vastly   superior forces of the enemy this plan  was devised to hold the greatest pos  sihle part of Belgium   against   invasion   and   to establish the army on  lines of defence that   resistance   under favorable  conditions   might be  made in concert with the forces  of  powers guaranteeing neutrality, and  at the same time it avoided  exposure   of   the  army, the safeguard of  the nation, to risk of disaster should  junction with those  forces   not   be  effected   before   the  arrival of   the  enemy's armies.

Suspended by One Arm From Machine  to  do   Repairs  The thrilling story of'an Australian  air pilot,-who clung by one hand to the  framework of a disabled aeroplane;  five thousand feet over the enemy's  lines, while executing repairs with the  other, was told in London by an officer observer oil leave of- absence  from Northern France-  "Wc had crossed* the German lines  and their guns were booming at us  from way down below, when Corn-  stock (the pilot") noticed that out-  left wing was tilting clown and .not  responding to the controls," said the"  officer.  "lie swung out of the seat fo the  right side, but the plane continued to  tilt and it looked as if .we were going-  over  sure.  "Cornslock acted Quickly. Tie let  himself down with nothing but  thousands of feet beneath him, holding tight with his right hand and  fumbling with tho control wires  where they were jammed under the  body of the machine.  ''The strain on his right arm must  have been terrific. Seconds seemed  hours as lie swayed there, his legs  dangling in space, while the machine  swung over 'air bumps' and levered  to the side.

The latter  task is accomplished thus: Ten machines patrol our line at a height of  2,000 meters and ten more at 3,000,  but flying in the opposite direction,  so that if the German scout tries  to . get through he is attacked by the  nearest two '-'���������' Frenchmen 'above and  below simultaneously, others joining  if the two arc insufficient to stop  him.

SUN,   GRAND    FORKS,  BELIEVES VICTORY ASSURED TO,CAUSE OF ALLIES  Marketing Problem  A Victory that will give Birth to a Newer and Freer Civilization,  In Which this Country will have no Inconsiderable Place  and will Play no Unworthy Part  just passed  before  In. a review of his experiences and  impressions sained during his recent  important visit, to Great Britain and  the battlefields cf France and Belgium  given before a gathering of hundreds  of,members of the O.ttawa Canadian  club, Premier Sir Robert Borden expressed his pride in what the Canadian troops have done for the Dominion and the empire at the front, in the  splendid spirit shown by the Canadians 'it Shornciute and tho wounded  in thri different hospitals of the old  country and France, in iWhat the British navy has done and is still doing to  keep the sens open for commerce, of  confidence as a result ot what he saw  and learned that victory is assured  to the arms of the allies���������a victory  Chat will give birth to a newer and  freer civilization and democracy for  the world.  Sjr Robert said i- had been satisfactory to make the voyage fo Britain and return on a ship carrying the  British dag. There was a feeling of  apprehension among some of the passengers as the vessel entered the war-  zone, but this was removed when a  British' war vessel came alongside.  The premier said that shortly after  he landed hc saw evidence of what  the war meant for Canada, for there  were some'wounded Canadian officers  on the deck to meet liini.  A few days after his arrival in England he went to Shorncliffe and saw  the Canadian troops there in review.  The sight of the .17,000 officers and  men who comprise the Second Canadian division, marshalled together,  with the bayonets on their rifles glistening in the morning sun was both  an impressive and pleasing sight. The  bearing and spirit of all the men were  all that could be desired-  "An officer of Lord Kitchener's staff  ���������Sir Archibald "Murray���������told me,"  the premier said, "as .we rode away  from tlie camp after the review at  Shorncliffe, that, he had seen over 400,-  000 troops of the new British army  under review, but he had not seen  "such a line body of men as the Can  adians     who had  him that day."  Sir Robert-told cf visiting tli3 Canadian trenches which were in some  places only thirty yards away from the  Germans. The premier said that tho  day he and the party were in the  trenches tho Germans refrained from  firing any shells. However, there was  no doubt they had a very tine intelligence department, for on the day following the premier's visit, they fired  some live dozen shells at the Canadian  headquarters building, but did no damage, the party having left by this  time.  '  In conclusion, Sir Robert spoke of  the gigantic task of-preparation, the  immensity of which could hardly be  realized. lie w.-.~ assured that the  British authorities are fully conscious  now and that tho necessary effort is  being made. He stated that the  French nation is thoroughly in earnest  and realizes the significance of the  struggle.  "And so I come back to you from  (he men at the front, from the French  people, from the British people, with  that message���������with ' a message not  only of determination, but of confidence as well- One cannot tell what  may in the final result come from, this  war. The events through which we  arc moving are so wonderful, so tremendous, so world compelling that we  can hardly realize their significance.  One of my colleagues said to me a  year ago that this war seemed to him  as the suicide of civilization. Let us  hope rather that it may prove to be  the death of much that marred and  hindered the progress .rnd development of civilization and democracy.  Perhaps we mie-ht feel like hoping,  and indeed believing, that this war  may prove lo b-> the birth pang attending the nativity of a truer ana  nobler civilization, in which this country, as one of the great free nations  of the empire, will have no inconsid  erable  place  and-  worthy part."  will   play    no   un-  Coming Winter Campaign  Winter  Would  Appear  to   Favor  the  Cuase of Allies in Every Quarter  Repeated evidences arc being noted  by the cables that all the allies are  preparing in earnest for another winter campaign. This is net at all in the  nature of news, but it indicates how  little real disappointment has been felt  by the allied government*.- at their inability to close the war with a conclusive victory this year. Undoubtedly Lord Kitchener's estimate of a  long war has been always in the mind  of our military leaders, who fully understood the character of the enemy  thcy had to face and break.  A winter campaign is in our favor  on ail fronts- In Russia, this is especially true. The Germans will have  either to retire iguominiously from  the far-eastern line they have reached,  or endure a. winter far from their  bases and dependent on fragile and  slander lines of railway for supplies.  These lines run through a hostile population and it will not be .surprising if  they get out of commission very frequently and at critical moments. Then  the Russian winter will be very trying  to the Germans, and by no means so  difficult for the inured Russians to  meet. We may look for heavy Teutonic losses all through the winter���������if  they manage to hold-at all���������and for-  comparatively light Slav sufferings.  Ln the west, we have seen that  winter makes for immobility, and, in  this war of attrition, it is we who can  afford to remain immobile, while the  Germans must make progress or lose  their chance. When the western lines  are finally settled for the winter, our  .' lads will probably do nothing but hold  them, while the constant German  movement will expose our enemies to  constant losses.  On the Italian -frontiers, the Austrians wiil be compelled to live the  winter through tinder Alpine rigors,  while tho bulk of the Italian troops  will be basking serenely in the suu-  Kliine of Italy. It. is true that our allies are holding many of the Alpine  positions���������thanks to their clash and  courage���������but it will only be the advanced linn which must remain there.  Tho main army will be as surely iu  Italian sunshine its the main Teuton  army will be flou.ideriug amidst Alpine snows.  Then, again, in (ho Dardanelles we  wiU have the sunny side of the hill���������  if we have not in the meantime forced  thr? Straits. Our troops will reach  Gailipoli through the perpetual summer of the Mediterranean and will find  on that war-torn peninsula a beautifully warm climate, much better than  the fervid heat thoy have just been  enduring. But. if the Germans fail to  break through the Balkans before winter comes, winter alone will be almost  enough to bar (hair path. We have  always considered that there was no  danger of a Balkan uprising during  the winter months. Onl^* when the  snows in (he Balkan mountains melted were we ever in fear of a Balkan  conflagration.  So we lace tlie prospect of a winter  campaign���������not only with  equanimity  ���������but   with  great  confidence   that   it '  will work in our favor.   Winter \a our '  ally all along the line. We shall como  out of it relatively very much strong- j  er than our enemies, and tlite wearing  war of. nations will be resumed in the  spring with our forces in a far better  position to win than the reduced  forces of the Central Empires.���������"Montreal Star.  Good  Advice  to  Dairymen   in  Marketing Cream and Butter  When the farmer is not too far  away from the town, selling whole  milk or sweet cream to individual customers or to hotels, restaurants, etc.,  is generally the most profitable method of marketing, if these markets  cannot be obtained and good express  service can be secured, the shipping  of cream to hotels, restaurants or to  a creamery is very profitable, for not  onl-v is a good price received for the  cream, but the skim milk is retained  on the farm'- Even though the farmer  is a long' way from the shopping station, if it is possible to interest enough  of his neighbors in dairy work, a  crsam route can be organized and the  cream collected and shipped lo the  creamery. S01113 communities as far  as fifteen miles from a shipping station have their cream collected and  are selling cream to a creame-ry.  The.re is an added advantage in selling cream in that the skim milk is retained on the farm and can be used  for household purposes or can be fed  to the calves, pigs, chickens, etc. Skim  milk Ted in a proper ration to pigs  or calves is worth from 2 cents to G  cents per gallon, depending upon the  quality of the stocks to which it is  fed.  If a cream route cannot bo organ^  ized in the community, butter can ba  made and marketed two . or three  times per week or shipped to individual customers through the rural  route by means of the parcal post. To  get a" profitable price for butter  it is necessary to make good butter  an dto market it iu an attractive  package. Good butter, printed in  rectangular pound blocks wrapped in  parchment paper and enclosed in a  neat carton bearing the name of the  farm and the name and address of the'  farmer will bring 35 cents per pound  the year round and sometimes even  more.  Training  Canadian  Horses  The Gambler's Toll  Producers of wheat and corn have  the right to feel dissatisfied with any  marketing conditions which enable  speculators to.bear prices down just  to create long profits for the professional operators. All of the excessive  profits secured in this way must come  in the final analysis, from the producer to the consumer.  The speculator is a parasite, from  an economic standpoint, and subsists  from piratical raids into the realm of  legitimate commerce. Some day the  citizens of the United States and their  official representatives will come to a  realization that gambling in stocks! It  and grains is no more legitimate or  necessary than the once famous Louisiana lottery���������and that The '"lambs"  had a better show for their money in  the old discredited lottery game than  in the "brace" arrangements conducted at Chicago and Now York against  the real grain interests.���������Sioux City  Tribune.  The Belgium government has protested to neutral states against the action of the German administration in  tearing up and transferring .to Poland  the tracks of the Belgian railways.  The protest is based on an article of  the fourth Hague convention which  stipulates that the occupation of the  invaded territory shall consist only of  occupation de facto. Removal of the  railways, the note contends,���������will make  much more difficult the transmission  of business by a large portion of the  population of Belgium.  How  Horses Shipped to  England  Are  Broken   For War  Purposes  Successions or regiments of horses  for the army are being trained in  the neighborhood of Reclhill,  Surrey.  Thousands of horses pass through  the hands of the large staff monthly.  They come over^ from Canada in  shiploads, and arrive in-Surroy daily  in large numbers. They are a splendid stamp of five arid six year old  animals. They are easily ciimatis-  ed, and make magnificent "gunners."  Many have never seen a set of  harness. Some are docile and others  are as mad as "March hares. The  morning following their arrival they  are paraded by ertswhile' English  and Belgian "cross country jockeys,  racing stable boys, rough riders and  men. who have ridden to hounds,  forming a remount squad of the A.  S.C.  Amenable and tractable horses  who do not wince at bridle and saddle, and provide' a good mount, are  immediately promoted. A white  stripe is painted on the loins, and  they are classed as lance-corporals.  Next day, if they take kindly to  harness, they receive another stripe,  and rise to the rank of sergeant with  three stripes if they take to team  work in a gun  '.arriagc.  It is the fretful and ill-humored  animal that tries the patience oi" the  trainers. The whip is seldom- used,  frequently takes an hour to saddle one of these Canadians, but it is  done. Not a few of them squeal  like a-rabbit and lie down. Others  fight till they are exhausted���������but,  they are mastered.  The wildest are either tamed in* a  fortnight or they are placed out with  farmers. Here they spend the first  seven or eight days standing in a  stable fully harnessed, with breech  bands dangling round their legs and  a restricted diet. This is followed  by light work on the farm, and they  return cured.  From  Redhill  they  the  "firing line"    in  having  become  used  IS ANXIOUS TO   RECEIVE-: ADVICE  FROM  ANYONE  Subject of Transportation and Marketing of Crops to be Thoroughly  investigated, and Committee will Gather and Arrange all '  Facts and Information Which will be of Value  Interviewed after the announcement  that he would act with the committee  of the government in connection with  the marketing problem, W. Sant'qrd  Evans stated that his chief function  would be to gather facts and opinions and so .sift and arrange them  that they might be of most service  to the committee and to the country.  "I am most anxious," said "Mr. Evans, "to receive help iu this matter  from everyone who has a fact or an  opinion to offer. I invite letters,  telegrams, markei. newspapers and  personal interviews with individuals  or deputations. 1 cannot, of course,  undertake to conduct 1. discussion  by correspondence with individuals,  but I will undertake to see that all  proposals receive consideration.  This country muse think out its  marketing problem sojne time, and  during the next few months I shall  try to act, under the committee, as  a sort of clearing house toward this  end. From time to time I shall, according to the wish ot the committee, keep the press informed of the  progress of the investigation and  the committee will promptly announce the results of its work.  "The firse essential to prompt and  effective co-operation is that we get  down to actual facts. Take for example the problem of ocean transportation which has been engaging  the most serious consideration of  the government. i\Iuch of the.public discussion so far would seem 'to  bo based upon an imperfect realization of facts. In general it may be  said that Canada docs not market  wheat in Europe, but Europe buys  wheat in Canada. There arc no adequate facilities in Europe to make  it possible for Canadian exporters  to ship wheat to l-hirope on their  own account and then arrange for  wholesale or- retail sales after arrival. Tho risks in such business arc  too great and there nr  disastrous failures in  with cargoes arriving  account.  "Europe's grain    market  ganized in that way.    Some  importer  buys  wheat    and  Canadian    exporter   ships  means   that   the   European  determines  what    wheat  in cabling a tentative offer fo im-'  porters of the other side. Actual  business, however, depends -on the  action of the European importer.  But if the Canadi-'.n exporter is extremely doubtful about obtaining  tonnage, ho. will be less active iu  taking the initiative, and if ho fails  to locate'tonnage after receiving an  inquiry ho will not concludo a sale.  In these ways a shortage of tonnago  would tend fo restrict business with  Canada.  'An  essential  fact    in  with "this whole matter  ope  takes    delivery    of  Hour week    by    week,  throughout the year  its  actual    weekly  connection  is that Eur-  wheat and  fairly evenly  in proportion to  needs.    It  never  are  drafted  to  England,    and  to   the  roar  of  the cannon, are shipped to France.  An English physician has advanced tlie theory that the juices of the  mouth are intended to keep the teeth  clean, not to prepare food for digestion as generally believed.  records  of  connection  on   shippers'  is not or-  Eimopean  then the  it. This  importer  will cross  the ocean aud v^hen it will be shipped to meet tlie conditions of the  trade. Ocean lonim*. 1 should be proportionate to European purchases  from Canada and cannot be judged  at any time in relation to the Canadian surplus. During the first,year  of the war several European governments, adopted tha unusual  ���������course of purchasing wheat in order  to insure adequate supplies and also  to bo in a position to regulate the  home markets. In the face of the  large supplies of wheat in the world  at present there is not the same necessity for direct action by European  governments, and the probability is,  therefore, that the business will be  left again to the private trade-  "Transportation necessities will  be fully met if ships enough are  available to carry to Europe the  amount of Canadian wheat the private traders of Europe will buy. It  is obviously impossible to tell beforehand exactly how much these  importers will buy in any mouth. In  any particular transaction the initiative may be taken by tho European importer in cabling an ���������inquiry  to exporters on this side, or it may  be  taken  by  the   Canadian   exporter  buys for delivery within ��������� a limited  period much more'than will be consumed in that period. Even during  the past two months this condition  has been preserved. Moreover, Europe buys only a certain proportion  of high clas3 hard wheat such as  ours, and buys the:balance'.'of softer  wheat No matter how we market  our crop, the outside world takes  delivery in its cwn way. In all the  history of the export : of Canadian  wheat to overseas countries, that is  all countries except the United  States, have together taken, delivery  on only three occasions of as much  as 12,000,000 bushels ot" Canadian  wheat in any one month. This statement is based on a careful study of  the monthly exports of Canadian  wheat "from, all ports, both of Canada and of the United States. Even  -the three '������������������ occasions-������������������ on which as'  much' as 12,000,000 bushels was taken in a month were occasions on  which Canadian wheat was really at  a bargain, a sacrifice price,'and" no,  price we have hitherto made has re-'  suited in the overseas world taking  as much as 12,000.000 bushels in a  month except on these occasions.  "The problem is to use every possible effort to see that business is  not lost for Canada because ships  cannot be obtained to carry what  the countries open to trade are prepared to take delivery of month by  month from us. During the first  year of the war all the open countries of Europe receiver, regularly  all wiicat they needed. This means  that during the past twelve months  there has been ocean tonnage enough  in the world to carry wheat, even  after, the .'. various admiralties had  made their requisitions. It is not  understood that there has been any  important reduction in the world's  ocean tonnage during the year. Europe's requirements of wheat and  flour are expected, to be less this  year than last, certain other classes  of freight, and particularly munitions, will undoubtedly be much  heavier, but other classes again will  probably be much lighter. 11_is not  available in the world ample commercial tonnage to move as much  wheat as Kuropen wants, and as fast  as she will take delivery of it-  "It has already been announced  that the government has been taking every measure open to it to-assist in meeting aiy actual shortage  of commercial tonnage if such is  found to exist. It is particularly desired that facts and suggestions  which are in accordance with the  real nature of the problem should  be offered, and it. is highly undesirable that discussion should proceed  on misconceptions of what is really  required and practicable."
