C, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1914  $1.00 PER YEAR  CITY COUNCIL  The session of the city council  on Monday - evening was not as long  as it usually is. Mayor Gaw and  Aid. Bonthron, Henniger, Manly  and McCallum were present.   '  James H Ryley submitted legal  advise regarding the council making  a grant of $1000 to Dr. Kingston's  new hospital. He^ randered . the  opinion that to make the grant legal  a bylaw to this effect would have to  be approved by the ratepayers of  the city. On motion of Aid. Manly  aid McCallum, the clerk was instructed to inform Mr. Kingston  that the council had no power to  make the grant without first submitting a bylaw to the people.  Aid. Bonthron, chairman of the  board of works, reported that the  street work would be completed  Tuesday evening. Winnipeg avenue  had. been macadamized from the  CP.R. trestle to First street; Donald street from the C.KR. crossing  to Winnipeg avenue, and the macadamizing of Second street would be  finished tomo-irow night. Besides  this work a number of cross streets  had been graded. About $1950  -.had been expended on. street imr  provements. He bad interviewed  the CP.R. engineer who visited the  city last week in regard to the proposed Winnipeg avenue subway,but  no definite conclusion had been arrived at. He advised that the matter  -be taken up with W. O. Miller, district superintendent, and kept alive  until an agreement between the city  and the CP.R. is reached. In the  event of the subway not being constructed, the trestle would have to  be   renewed   next spring, and this  counts were ordered to be paid.  The clerk was authorized to  transfer the deeds of the lots traded  to the.townsite company for a right  of way of the street to the Great  Northern station.  Supreme Court  A sesion of the supreme court  was held in the court house in this  city on Monday afternoon, Judge  McDonald presiding. There were  only three cases on the docket. Two  of these, J. W. Meagher vs. The  Granby Company and Anthony de  Visser vs. The Granby Company,  were actions brought under the  Workmen's Compensation act, and  both were laid over until the next  term of court.  In the case of Carl Vick, a boy  eight years old, vs. Morrin-Thomp-  son, judgment was reserved. This  was a very interesting case. From  the evidence it appeared that the  boy while playing in the basement  of the Phoenix school, where defendants were installing a heating  plants, had stumbled over a bar of  iron and broken a leg. Damages  were asked for.  Caunty County  A sitting of the county court was  held in the court house . yesterday,  Judge Brown presiding.  In the case of Rutledge vs. Citi,  judgment was given plaintiff for a  small.amount. A-number; of cases  were laid over until the next term of  court.  Two subjects of the Mikado of  Japan were admitted to Canadian  citizenship. About thirty Austrians  applied for naturalization. These  were laid over until the g)od moral  character of the applicants could be  established.  work would be more expensive than  the subway. A great portion of the  work on the subway could be done  this winter. On motion of Aid.  Henniger and Bonthron, the clerk  was instructed to communicate with  Mr. Miller and ascertain what portion of the cost the company would  bear of a 24-'oot wide and 12 foot  high, clear, subway.  Aid. McCallum, chairman of the  water and light committee, reported  that the lighting system had been  finished in Chinatown, and the system all over the city was now in good  condition. The school authorities  had complained of stock running at  large on the school yroperty, and  tbey wanted the pound re-established at the Central schoal. On motion of Aid. Manly, their wishes  were complied with and Peter Mc-  Niven was appointed deputy pound-  master.  On   motion  of  Aid.   McCallum,  families whose main  support   have; weekly  gone to the front were granted water  and light at the minimum rate.  Aid. Henniger,   chairman of  the  health and relief committee, was instructed to investigote a case of   reported destitution in the North  dition.  Says Officers Will Retain Rank  Capt. Kirk, who: returned from  Victoria on Monday, reports that  Lieut. Walker and the non-commissioned   officers   from   Grand Forks  will all retain their rank, and that  the non commissioned officers and  privates from here are so weli  thought of that they form.a separate  drill detachment and will later on  be drafted into the 50th Highlanders, one of the crack regimentf. Two  men only were considered doubtful^  on medical inspection, one on account of his eyesight and the other  because he was minus a toe.    Capt.  Friday  ���������The kaiser again orders an nttack on  the front at Ypres, and a final effort  is made to break the allies' lines,  but' the latter make steady progress.  The Germans want to reach Calais  before they meet the Russians in  Silesia.  The Japanese and British forces  storm the German fortress of Tsing-  tau, and a three months' siege ends  in a victory for the allies in the far  East. Both sides have suffered  heavy losses in attacks on the strong  hold.  Turkey is reported to be   ad vane  ing on Egypt.    A holy war has been  declared,    according   to   Berlin   re  ports.    The   Armenian   forcps  join  the    Russians.    Bulgaria   may   get  Macedonia   and  join   the triple en  tente.  A London report says the British  ships forced the Germans to fight off  the Chilean coast. Monmouth and  Good Hope lost.  Four hundred thousand meals  are served daily at Bryssels by the  United States commission.  The Russians capture the fortress  of Jaros.laW.  Saturday  The Germans fail to find a weak  spot in the battle in France along  the entire front'. The British lines  are thinned but obstinately hold  their ground and slowly creep forward in bloody struggles near Ypres  With bayonets fixed, .Scotchmen  and guards hurl back the Prussian  masses.  The Russian forces press forward  into East Prussian territory aud dis  lodge the enemy from strongly fortified positions. The Austrian  army is cut off from the Germans,  and must cross the Carpatians to  escape.  The admiralty announces the occupation by the British of Fao, a  port of Asiatic Turkny, at the  mouth of the river Shat el Arab, in  the Persian gulf..  The German warships Scharu-  horst and Gneisenau are declared to  have been taken by Japanese  cruisers.  The German cruiser Geier  is   in-i  terned at Honolulu.  The most violent attempt of the  enemy to hew through the line is at  j Dixmude. The progress of the  I Franco British forces is described as  slow but satisfactory. The French  artillery improves the position  around Ypres.  The Briti.-h navy got into the war  picture today with two successes ���������  the destruction of the German.cruis  er Emden in the eastern waters of  the Indian ocean and the bottling  up of the Konigsberg in the western  extremity of the same sea.  A Rome dispatch says that Germany, alarmed at the Russian sue  cess, has made preliminary offers of  peace to the Russian government,  which have been rejected.  The   Prussian   right   wing  gives  way   and  the   Russian cavalry advances farther into   Germany.    Re  ports   are  conflicting  regarding the  situation in Galicia.  It is understood the   Italian   gov  ernmeut has  addressed   representa  tions to Austria concerning mines in  the Adriatic  It is alleged that Germany paid  Turkey as the price of her intervention in the war 200,000,000   marks.  Turkish transports are sunk by  the Russian fleet and great quantities of army supplies are lost.  The Egyptians appear to be loyal  to the British empire.  Wednesday  The Prussians capture Dixmude,  but the Franco-British line is unbroken. The town is on a direct  line to Dunkirk. The Germans  claim to have taken two thousand  prisoners. The allies have gained  ground at" other points along the  battle front.  Twenty thousand prisoners are  takun by the Russians. The rapidity of the advance of the czar's  troops startles military experts.  Przemysl is again surrounded. The  Austrians claim successes against  the Servians in the south.  A dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph says the British gunboat  Niger was torpedoed and sunk by a  German submarine off Deal pier.  It is officially announced at Pretoria that the South African rebels  have been given until November 21  to surrender. '  IN THE CANNERY  In view of- the fact that the weekly  market has been phenomenally successful up to the present time, the  raneher3 of the valley have been  making plans to continue it through  the winter months. With this end  in view, they have for some time  been endeavoring to secure a suitable building in which to hold it  when the weather outside becomes  too frigid and too wet for comfort.  They now announce that the cannery has been secured for this purpose, and the market will be transferred to this building as soon as the  climatic conditions in the street be-  uncomfortable.  come  The longer the war lasts the more  will the strength of the empire avail  to replace losses, says Premier As-  quith.  ���������   The Canadian  soldiers   take   the  hardships of camp life cheerfully,  (Yesterday's war summary on page 4)  METEOROLOGICAL  The   following  is   the   minimum  The Japanese  celebrate  the   victory at Tsing-tau.

McCabe,  while   on   their  way to the lake in  Mr. Niles' car last  Saturday   afternoon, had an  experience   that tbey  would   not  like   to have  repeated  every   week   in  the  year.      When-  runing along  a steep  embankment  between Cascade and the  lake,  Mr.  Niles  ran   the  car close to the edge  to avoid a puddle of water.   Suddenly the ground   gave way, and made  two somersaults over the bank    Mr.  Niles jumped in the same direction  the   car   was   headed,  but   when it  caught  up  to  him  it  was stopped  by a healthy bull pine stump.   Mr.  McCabe stayed   with car, and when  it stopped rolling he was   fished out  from underneath it as sound  as he  was   when    he   left this city.    Mr.  Niles also escaped without a scratch.  After a   team, rope and tackle   had  been   secured, the car   was   hauled  back on the road.    It was apparently all right   with   the exception   of  the     wind break,   and   on     being  cranked   it evinced every   evidence  of  being  unharmed,   and   the men  resumed their journey  to the  lake.  ; This incident may not have  been  a  ] miracle, but it was certainly superlative luck.    Mr. Niles, who is a bank  manager,   says   he   should    have  known that a run on any kind of  a  bank is a dangerous thing.  that they could obtain  commissions  if they went to Englaud  lish channel.

PLOSIVES  'ME    DETAILS   OF  THEIR  AND ^MANUFACTURE  USES  The Only Powerful  Explcsive  Known  For  Many  Centuries Wao Gunpow-.  cler���������This Has Been Superseded by  Many Modern High Explosives.  For mauy centuries the only power  ful   explosive   known  and   used     for  warlike   purposes   was' gunpowder,  a  mixture oi' sulphur, carbon and saltpetre.    With  its  aid,  Constantinople  defended itself for.many years against.  ���������   its enemies, and the conquest of South  Western Europe by the Arabs in 1711,  was  no  doubt  in   part due  to   their  employment of this means of offence  and defence.    At tlie outset gunpowder was known as. Greek.fire, and was  merely used  to throw at the enemy  like a  modern  hand grenade,  but it  was made almost exactly as it is today.  A most interesting fact is that its  composition was kept, a-close secret-  by the Turks f6r from "live to six hundred years; but for this the course of  history might have been very different. *  But this primitive pyrotechnic was  a feeble weapon compared with its  modern descendants, the high explosives. It was not-until 18-15 that gua-  powder met its first serious rival in  guncotton, or nitro-cellulose, a substance which soon came into general  use, and has remained a constituent  of the majority, of smokeless powders  ever since. When gunpowder is ex-  plod (1 it produces a number of solid  products which are seen as smoke,  but guncotton affords- only colorless  gases which are invisible. ^Cellulose  is the organic matter wliich'forms the  basis of all vegetable products and-of  all substances made-from them (wood,  cotton,  silk,  paper,   etc.).  To convert them into explosives  they are treated with a mixture of nitric and sulphuric acids, technically  known as "nitro-acid." The process is  simple, but, nevertheless, extraordinary care has to be taken, otherwise  the finished product becomes a greater source of danger to those who use  it than to those against whom its use  is intended. The terrible disaster  which befell the French navy in 1911  will be in the memory of all. One of  her proudest and mightiest engines  of war the battleship, La Libcrte, was  compleely wrecked with the loss of  many hundred lives, owing to tho  spontaneous explosion of some nitrocellulose.  So much attention has now been  devoted to the manufacture of this  high explosive that not only can its  serviceable qualities be relied, upon  after twelve to fifteen years' storage,  but deteriorated material can be worked up again, and made as good 'is  new at a very-small cost. Guncotton  and allied substances are prepared  for service in various shapes and  forms���������tubes, cords, tablets, discs,  and rods���������each form exerting its own  . particular influence upon the rate of  combustion of the explosive.  Very soon after the advent oJ gun-  cotton, nitroglycerine and dynamite  made their appearnce. The former is  made by treating ordinary glycerine, a  by-product of soap manufacture, with  "nitro-acid" and as it is a liquid,  and not therefore, well suited for an  explosive, it is mixed with a fine sandy  material, "infusorial organisms," and  in this way dynamite comes into being.  One of the most powerful of all high  explosives is mad9 by saturating gun-  cotton with nitroglycerine. It is  known as blasting gelatin and, like dv-  namite, is chiefly used for peaceful,  industrial purposes, such as mining  and tunnel driving.  A strong impulse to the discovery  of explosives more powerful than gunpowder was afforded by the theoretical conclusion that better results  would be obtained by using projectiles  of smaller diameter if they could be  propelled with rreater velocity. Accordingly, we find melinite discovered  by the French, lyddite by the English  and shimose by the Japanese, tsut all  these explosives are essentially the  same, consisting of picric acid, a red  solid made from carbolic acid, the  disinfectant.  The most up-to-date explosive for  warlike purposes is trinitrate, which  has very rapidly come into general  use. This material (whose name  might be mistaken for that of Welsh  village) is also known in different'  countries as trotyl, tolitc, trilite, tri-  nol, trotone, tritol and also more  familiarly as TNT. It has many advantages over its predecessors." It is  perfectly stable, does not absorb water, and hence is equally effective under or above water. It is not sensitive to blow, shock or fire, and is fir  more powerful in its effects. At tho  present time, guncotton, lyddite, and  TNT are all used for filling shells, and  are technically known as "bursters."  Tho "burster" is placed in the cen  tral poriticn of the shell and in order  that it may withstand the shock of  impact on armorplate tlie outer casinrr  of the shell is very thick and made of  specially hardened steel, alloyed with  one or other of the metals nickel,  chromium or vanadium. At the base  is the complex mechanism called the  "fuse" the function of which is to ignite the "burster." As the effect of  a penetrating shell is greater than one  which explodes on mere contact, its  point, is surrounded with a soft steel  cap which supports, and guidon tho  hard point beneath and so enables it  to "bite" and penetrate the armor-  plate.  Not only are high explosives used in  the construction of shells; they are  equally necessary for torpedicft and  mines. The submarine is simply a  charge of high explosive suitably encased so that it either floats on or  just below the si.rface. One type explodes on contact with a rigid moving  body, like a ship; the other can be  exploded by an eiectrical'communication from a distance.  All explosions are dus'to the sudden  liberation of an enormous volume of  gas which, being intensely heated, expands with terrific force. The material of the explosive undergoes a very  rapid combustion', and at the same  time, owing to the disturbance produced in the air, an air-wave is propagated -which frequently travel's and  effects destruction at a considerable  distance from the scene of the explosion. The progress from gunpowder  to guncotton is well illustrated by  their rates of burning. One. pound of  the former requires about a two-hun-  dreth part of a second for its combustion, whilst the same weight of the latter "goes off" in a one-hundredth-thou-  sandth part of a second, i.e., five hundred times more quickly.���������G. B. Milton,  in   Wonders of Land and Sea.  TESTAMENTS' OF   SOLDIERS  f CANADIAN WOMEN AND THE WAR  Germany Hac Run Amuck  Germany has run amuck. There is  no other explanation  oT  the kaiser's  policy in forcing a general European  Avar.  Fortunate it is that Great Britain  is compelled to cast her sword into  the baalnce wihtout further loss of  time/ ��������� ������������������'"���������  The issue is now joined. Either  German autocracy must be crushed, or  European democracy will be obliterated. There is no middle course, if the  forces that the kaiser lias loosed are  victorious, the map of European republicanism may as well be rolled up,  and the American people prepare to  make the last great .stand for democracy. All of continental Europe that  is not Russianized will be Prussianized. France, will be reduced to the  status of a third-rate power. Belgium,  Holland and Denmark will fall successively into the maw of'German imperialism. Italy will beco.me a vassal  state, the sun will have set upon tho  British empire as well, and the mailed  fist of the conqueror will make ready  to strike the final blow at.democracy  in the New World.  The course of the German government cannot be reconciled with any  theory of political sanity. Wantonly  and deliberately the kaiser has plunged his sword into the heart of civilization. The whole world is paying tho  penalty of his madness, neutrals as  well as belligerents. Upon the Ainer  ican people alone, 3,000 miles from the  scene of conflict; is levied a tribue of  millions of dollars a day in disorganized finance, and, the final reckoning  that must be paid for this maniacal  onslaught, of German autocracy defies  calculation. The human imagination is  staggered as it faces the inevitable  consequences of this supreme achievement of paranoia. '  It is still..possible to sympathize  with the German people in the great  tragedy that has overtaken them, with  their backs to the wall fighting a more  powerful coalition than ever Napoleon faced.- But there can be only one  answer to the kaiser's challenge to  Europe. German autocracy has made  itself the enemy of mankind. Its destruction will be the emancipation of  the German people themselves as well  as the salvation of European republicanism.���������New York World.  When Lhe Wills of Tommy .Atkins and  Jack Tar Are Legal  The Statutes of Wills in force in  Great Britain provide that wills oi  soldiers in actual military, service,  and of sailors, are subject to special  legislation, but this privilege applies  only to wills of personal estate.  Wills 'of petty officers and seamen  in- the navy, and of marines, as far  as relates to their pay or prize-money  must be attested by an officer, and  wills made by a seaman in the merchant service must, if made at sea,  be attested bv the master or mate,  and if made on land, by a superintendent of a mercantile marine office,  a minister of religion, justice of the  peace, or consular or customs officer.  The effects of seamen, marines and  soldiers killed or dying in the British  service, are exempt from the regular  duty; and if they amount to less than  a hundred pounds, they are not probated. In the case of prisoners of  war-, wills are subject to special re-  C'llations.   - ���������--.-���������.  Under the French law, oral wills  are not recognized, but soldiers' and  sailors' wills are subject to special  rules as in most' other countries. . In  Germany there is a provision that the  formalities may be relaxed in certain  car.es, such as imminent death, a prevailing epidemic, a state of siege.  ,.ust recently ' the officers of the  German warships Goeben and Breslau  filed their wills with the German  consul at Messina, so that these  might come under that classification.  The cruisers were supposed ; to be  preparing to run -out through the  English fleet, which was reported--!.*)  be lying in wait for them off the harbor,; but instead they fled with all  speed to neutral waters, where they  were sold  to prevent    fighting    and  capture.  In :the  wills, the  only with  United States nuncupative  right to make which lies  sailors at sea or soldiers  in the field, are somewhat rare, but  one was admitted to probate in King-;  County in December,. 1909. It was  made by George O'Connor, chief engineer of the steamship 'Dorothy,  when the vessel was in inid-ocean.  All that he said was: "Everything  that I have belongs to my  Lizzie." The will was proved.with  the aid of two witnesses,: the captain  and the first officer of the Dorothy.  in the Argentine  commerce    depart  Country of Flour Miils  Flour milling is generally consideerd  tho most important industry in Hungary. Theer are 21,000 flour mills in  operation, about ninety per cent, of  which are small mills that supply only  the demands of the localities in which  they are situated. The remainder of  steam mills are equipped with the  most modern machinery and prepared  to compete in the world's markets  Hungary grows large quantities of  wheat,, and certain grades of it are  among the. best in the world. At present it sometimes happens that so large  a percentage of Hungarian wheat is  bought by the Austrian mills through  the co-operation:* of the Austrian railways that the Hungarian mills are  forced to import Russian wheat. Hungarian coal mines, operated by the  government, are unprofitable. Recently it was estimated based on pact  years, that the net loss to the government on all the coal mines it owns  and operates would be at least $300.-  000 for the present year.  W.

Canada's Trade  The trade and  ment has issued a comprehensive an  alysis of the trade of Brazil and Argentina with a view;to showing opportunities which Canada now has of capturing some trade of which Germany  has been deprived: as*������a result of the  war. Germany's: total "export trade to  Argentina in 19.12 amounted to, nearly  $62,000,000 as compared ''with about  $116,000,000 for Greal"'. Britain and  about-$2,250,000 from Canada; Brazil  bought from Germany.in 1912 goods  to the value of $160,000,000 as compared with .$235,000,000 from Great  Britain and $3,400,00 from Canada.  The opening of Canada in securinfr  markets in Argentina and Brazil to replace cerman goods are many. They  include manufactured timber canned  goods, paper and wood pulp, manufacturers of iron and steel, agricultural  machinery, cement, furniture and preserved fish.

A True Story  Everybody knows that the quality of  reliability is the most valuable asset  that man can have, and how rare it is.  The man who sticks to his job under  all circumstances is the man who  makes the nation. An illustration of  this fact lies in the story ^that was  told about a man who once owned a  carrier pigeon���������one of those pigeons  which, no matter where it went, could  always be relied upon to come back.  This gentleman .was talking one  day with a friend of his and he said:  "What do you suppose happened to  that pigeon oj' mine? I was talking  with a fellow the other day about  him, and made the remark that this  I..geon always came back no maU.;,r  where he went, and he said that Indict not believe it. He said that he  could take that pigeon to Philadelphia  and he would be willing to bet me  $100 that the pigeon would not come  back inside of twenty-four hours." 1  told him that I would take i.iin up.  Well, sir, he took the pigeons down to  Philadelphia, and what do you suppose he did?"  "I can't imagine," said the 1'rk-nd.  "Didn't he let him loose in Phikubi-  phia?"  "Oh yes, hc l3t him loose; hut before he let him loose he flippm". tho  pigeon's wings."  "Well, that was too bad," said  friend. "Then you lost your bet,  the pigeon didn't come back? '  The man smiled. "Oh. yes, the  eon came back and I won my bet."  "lie came back?" said the friend.  "Sure," said the man. "lie came  back, but he had awfully sore feet."  Patriotic Organizations That Have  Been Formed in the Dominion  When the call to arms for the defence of the British empire sounds  ���������from east to west of Canada, it is  not the men only who are stirred by  that appeal to patriotism, loyalty and  gratitude for protection in the past.  The women, in their own way, responded as quickly and as wholeheartedly.  When the South African war broke  out and Canada responded nobly to  the need of the mother country for  men the women did their share' not  only by encouragement bfft"by raising  of money for the relief of the wives  and others left behind, by visiting  these other women and using influence  in many cases to, help them, and by  sending medical and other supplies to  the contingents in South Africa.  Almost immediately after Canada  began to take an active part in the  South African war the Montreal Herald made, the suggestion that a patriotic fund should be started for those  in need. It was; the idea of the Herald, but it, was /adopted at once by  the -Montreal Star, and the larger and  wealthier newspaper henceforth conducted the campaign, for. funds, to  which great numbers of women and  children contributed. ..-.'���������������������������'."  In October, 1899, Mrs. Hutton, wife  of Major-General (now Sir Edward)  Hutton, then commanding the Canadian militia, -organized the '������������������'���������-���������. Soldiers'  Wives; League, under the patronageof-  Lady Mihto, wife of the then governor-  general. The object of the league was  to bring the wives of all soldiers in  Canada,, of every rank, into close touch  and sympathy, foVmutual aid and assistance in times of distress and difficulty. "Systematised aid was arranged by the league for the families of the  men who formed the Canadian contingents- for active service in South  Africa. The; president of the league  was Mi's. Driimmond, wife of Major  (now Brig.-Gen.)" Lawrence' ."Driimmond, then military secretary to the  governor-general, and the secretary  was -Mrs.. Cotton. In Montreal, Mrs.  W. D. Gordon, wife of Colonel Gordon,  who himself saw service in South Africa, was at the head of affairs, and  daughter ; Mrs. Minden Cole was secretary! Quebec and ��������� Winnipeg also formed  branches: It is exceedingly likely that  when the Canadians go to the .front,  the league will'now be revived.  It was in February, 1900, that Mrs.  Clark Murray, wife of Professor Clark  Murray, - of M cGill Un i versi ty, f ou nd eel  the Imperial Order of the Daughters  of the Empire, with juvenile branches  called the Children of the Empire.  From a small beginning, and after a  time of eclipse, this society has grown  to enormous proportion's. There are  chapters all over Canada, and in the  United States there are 400,000 Brit-;  ish women enrolled Under its name.  A large number of women were  deeply interested, also, in the Canal  ian. branch of the British Red Cross  Society. This was organized in''1897  by Lieut.-Col. George Sterling Ryer-  son, M.D., of Toronto, and Avas.tha  first colonial branch of the society in  any country. It will be remembered  that during the war Dr. Ryerson acted  as British Red Cross Commissioner in  South Africa. A great many branches  were formed in Canada, chiefly in the  provinces of Quebec and Ontario. Women's committees worked industrious-  | ly, sending- supplies to the soldiers,  and the button with the badge of the  society was to be seen worn by such  well-known Montreal women as Mrs.  H. B, Yates wife of Dr. 11. B. Yate;,  and Miss Roddick', sister of Sir Thcs.  Roddick, who were active in the work  of the society.  If the women of Canada were ready  then, there is every evidence that the  present emergency will find them  even better equipped, and as enthusiastic���������if not more so���������in their loyal  effoits to do their share, in their own  way towards helping the empire.���������  Mary Maoleod Moore (published in  "Canada").

These strips are placed on an  automatic trimmer and cut to the  required length. They are then cou*  yeyed to the automatic lathes, seven  in number, each with a capacity of  four dozen a minute. From the  lathes the pins drop to the slotting  machines and from these to tho dry-  room, where all -'moisture is removed.  Next they go to the polishing cylinders, whicb are filled about half full  of pins, chips and sawdust.

A certain well-to-do  farmer named Haui'f became so much  enraged by the plunder; of his well-  stocked farm that he shot dead two  German soldiers. He was immediately taken outside his house and executed. In vain his wife begged for  his life.. She afterwards found their  little boy crying on the dead body ot"  his father.  "Mother," the child said, "when I  grow up I shall avenge father and  shoot Germans."  The widow, finding further abode  in Alsace under German rule unbearable, emigrated to Belgium aud settled near Vise, where she took another farm.  -Her boy became a man, the father  of a family, including two boys, and  for forty-two years his "mother shared with him and her grandsons happy family life at Vise. Then came the  present war, and the German troops  arrived in Vise.  The Belgian inhabitants had just  before destroyed a bridge over the  Meuse. For this they were severely*  punishod by destruction of their  houses. Farmer HaulT witnessed  these outrages, and beside himself  with distress, and remembering his  promise over his father's body, shot  one German invader dead. At once  a number of soldiers seized him and  dragged also from his house his two  sons.  All three were placed against a wall  and summarily executed.  It was thus the fate of the poor  widow to see her husband, her son,  and her two grandsons shot before  her eyes.

"Belling the Cat"  "Who "will bell the cat?" is a curious old proverb, famous in parable  and in history. The mice, says the  parable, held a consultation how to  secure themselves1 from the cat, and  they resolved to hang a bell about the  cat's neck to give warning when she  approached, but after they had resolved on doing it they were as far  off as ever, for who would do it?  Both parable and proverb have immortalized themselves in history.  When the Scottish nobles met at Stirling in a body they proposed to take  Spence, the obnoxious favorite of  James II., and hang him and so get  rid of him.  "Ah," said Lord Grey, "that's very  well said, but who'll bell the cat?"

War   is i  The scheme adopted by the Grand  Forks civic government to relievo  those citizens whose circumstancas  had become straitened owing to the  war and the temporary suspension  of local industries by giving them  employment at moderate wages, instead of doling the money out as  charity, has commended itself to  the coast municipalities, and a number of them are following the lead  set by this city. This method of  relieving distress is a good one. It  gives the taxpayers value lor their  money, and those in need of help  and willing to work are not humiliated by being compelled to accept of  publieaims.

Do not pile the  potatoes in heaps on the floor or  agaiust the wall; slats should be  nailed about one inch apart and  four inches from the wall; ^.temporary floor should be laid about  four inches above the permanent  floor, with openings between the  boards. This will allow the air to  circulate through the pile. Large  piles should have ventilators running  through them. These should be  made of wood, with slats on two  sides for openings.  The temperature of the cellar or  storehouse should be kept as nearly  as possible at from 33 to 35 degrees.  The cooler potatoes are kept without freezing the better. If too warm,  their value for seed is lessened, as  they sprout too eariy.  POINTtD PARAGRAPHS  Before marrying a living picture,  a man should have enough saved up  to' purchase a suitable frame.

THE   CUTTER   LABORATORY,   Berkeley,   California.  Mary   L.   Jobe   Makes  British  Columbia     ���������       _,  A mountain, 11,000 feet high, which  Miss Mary L.Jobe, explorer-instructor  in history at Hunter college, New  York, believes has never-been mapped, was discovered: by ' her in tlie  wilds of British Columbia and a rj-  port concerning it will be made to tha  Canadian government and to the National Geographical society!  Miss Jobe located,the mountain, to  which she will give a Cree Indian  name, as about 150 miles north of Mt.  Robson. The topographical survey of  Canada extends to a point only a few  miles north on Mount Robson.  Miss Jobe and 'several ��������� companions  arrived at the footvof the nowly-dis-  covored mountain on Aug. 22, and began the ascent in a heavy snowstorm.  After covering six miles iney wero  forced to return to camp for food. A  flock of grouse, enabled them to provision and the ascent was.begun once  more. On Aug. 25 they reached with  iu S00 feet of the summit. -Here groat  ice caves, with icicles 60 feet in length  at their mouths, blocked progress.  The trip was Miss .Tobe's seventh  into the Canadian northwest.  Sir Edward Clark's Shorthand  Many people who have struggled  with the mysteries of shorthand have  reason to be grateful to Sir Edward  Clarke, B.C., a former solicitor-general oi: England, who is retiring from  the bar.  Many .years ago Sir Edward Clarke,  with memories of the shorthand  learned', in his school days, and of his  own experiences as a reporter, devised a system of stenography that  had npne of the maddening complications of those generally in use. He  found it so useful in his own practice that he eventually revealed its  secrets in a cheap book, and thereby  earned the gratitude of many who,  like Charles Dickens,, had learned to  their sorrow what havoc might be  worked by a misplaced dot.  Later, Sir Edward Clarke evolved  a system of rapid writing that came  between shorthand and longhand. He  christened it "Swifthaud;" it looked  to the uninitiated something like the  Morse Code on its head, but it never  became really popular.  The little boy was evidently a firm  believer, in the old adage, "Of two  evils choose the less." Turning a  corner at full speed he collided with  the -minister.  "Where are you running to, my lit-  -uj-man?" asked the minister, when  he had gained his breath.  "Home!" panted the boy. "Ma's  going to spank me."  "What!" gasped"' the astonished  minister. "Are you eager to have  your mother spank you that you run  home so fast?"  "No," shouted the boy over his  'shoulder as he resumed his homeward flight, "but if I don't get there  before pa, he'll do it!"  The  Right  of  Way���������'..,.  When traffic was at its height on  one of New York's busiest thoroughfares, recently and a long line of  trucks on either side, moving continuously, made crossing dangerous  for all passengers, a cat appeared  from a produce store Avith a kitten  dangling from her mouth, and tfried  to cross the street. Each time "she  started' she had to turn, back because  of a truck, and her efforts , quickly  attracted a crowd.  Down from the corner came a policeman. He soon saw what was the  matter, and while there was nothing  in the traffic regulations to cover the  point, it took him only a moment to  decide what to do. Going into the  street, he raised his hands in the way  that truckmen have learned means  "Stop." They stopped. The cat, seeing her,, opportunity, took a firmer  hold on the nock .of her kitten, and  then, holding it high to keep even its  curved tail "out of the mud, she slowly  and deliberately picked her way  across ,and disappeared in a cellar.

Change Affects Animals  Many otherwise profitable animals  are ruined by- a change of environment and management. All animals  that dwell long under certain conditions become homesick when their  home is changed. While time erases  all outward signs of dissatisfaction  and discontentment among such stock  many never produce as liberally in  their now situation.^ To obviate the  possibilities of these~~occurrenecs better treatment must be accorded the  animals in their new home than was  afforded them before the change.  Cows are very susceptible to thesa  changes and when new stock is purchased give them much individual attention. Better quarters, more palatable foods, greater care and some of  the luxuries of life will do much to  overcome the. detrimental effects to  bring them back to liberal yielding  again. Animals that are taken from  congenial quarters and placed in a  humble.home among stock that is  poorly kept seem to lose their pride  and power of production. There is  little difference between the feelings  ot* man and animals and the mora  humanely the animals are treated the  greater will be the profits derived  from them.

OF  OST DEM  A    MAN   OF   QUIET   HABITS   AND  MANY ACCOMPLISHMENTS  Has. Brought His Country to a Wonderful State/of Prosperity Through  rile    Keen    Insight and   Executive  Ability���������Is Beloved by All Classes.  .-.Standing supremely unique   among  the figures who are making history in  the great wars which will mark a new  era. for Europe, is Albert, king of the  Belgians,   newspaperman,' expert   engineer,   lover  of mankind  and  most  democratic of all rulers. -  Nobody ever heard much of Albert  Leopold Clement Maria Meinrad  be-  : fore that eventful day when he sent  word to his soldiers at Liege to "hold  ���������  out"   against   the   Germans massing  ���������   at      Herbestal.      The      exhortation  breathed such a dauntless, bombastic  assurance that those who read smiled  grimly and a little sadly as they reflected that tiny Belgium would prove  a tidbit for the Teuton war hosts.  But Liege surprised them, and Albert, King of .Belgium, which includes  some sizable cities and is said to enjoy more prosperity per capita than  any other European country, was soon  riding at the head of his army of 200,-  000 men. While directing his valiant  men he has found time to notify his  representatives in this country that  the credit of Belgium is unimpaired  and that all wheat shippers may send  their grain to Antwerp, with'the guarantee of the government that they will  not only be paid in gold, but that all  their war risks.will be covered.  Europe, last haven of "the divine  right of k-Ings," in the Occidental  ���������world, has long glared impotently at  Albert, King of Belgium. His casual  democracy, his undoubted business  ability and his manner of dealing with  the Socialists os that the Socialists,  cursing most labor conditions, paused  to praise their ruler, has worried them  almost into prostration. The fact remains that he has brought the country to a wonderful state of prosperity  ���������and the state railroads, under his direct supervision, have become a little  more profitable than any in this country.      -        ' -.-   .  There are few things that this accomplished king cannot do or hasn't  done. He fights, rides, swims, shoots,  and,engages in aviation, engineering  and.' writing with equal facility. He  was an ordinary newspaperman for a  long time, carrying a police card, visiting police stations and doing what  would be known here as "ship news."  As a reporter, it is said, he was a  "snappy" worker, who scored many  beats and obtained timely pictures.  Possibly his stay in America in 1898,  when he little dreamed of being king,  gave him the training necessary to set  a new standard for quick newspaper  work in Brussels and-Antwerp.  King Albert is more than six feet in  height and has a fair complexion and  golden hair. He is 39 years old, is  unusually devoted aud has three children. He is the son of the deaf Duke  of Flanders, and it was the mysterious  death of his brother, the Prince of  Baudoin, which made his accession to  the throne possible.  In 1898 he. came to America, and  spent much time in New York, "Washington and the east, went west and  stayed for months in St." Paul, Minn.  While there he studied about every  conceivable industry in the country.  On his return he wrote a book about  America, which evidenced the fact  that this idea of an ideal government  was the one his country had. adopted.  Having been a reporter for a long  time, he saw things keenly and clear-  . ly, and being the only reporter who  is now a king, he has developed a  sense of humor which is said to be  the dread of his prosaic cabinet ministers and his enemies, none of whom  ever acquired that trait to such a  considerable extent.  The king, who is a great cyclist  and an extraorrtinaryly brave man,  went to the Congo and pierced that  fever ridden country soon after his  accession to the throne. The thingi  ho saw there caused him to sell all o;  his possessions of Belgium in that  region after he had ameliorated the  conditions under which the natives  lived.  The one desire of the king was In  establish a merchant marine and  later a navy. After he had reviewed  tne "navy" of Belgium, in the first  dayf' of his reign he ordered all of  the vessels dismantled. They were  wooden hulks, and every time they  appeared at foreign ports were the  source of vast amusement.  The queen, his consort, Is a full  .fledged physician. She was Elizabeth,  daughter of the Duke Carl Theodore  of Bavaria, the famous oculist. As  the king is constantly seen about tho  piers of Antwerp, where he once gathered news for a newspaper, conversing with stevedores, so the queen evidences her democratic spirit by beini?  seen working in the slums of Brussels.  She has established hospitals in many  phces in Belgium, and is head of an  association of women who strive *.o  ameliorate* conditions under which  hard working folk live.  The king is an indefatigable worker. He rises at 6 in the morning and  rarely ever ceases work until 6 in the  afternoon. As a mechanical engineer  he has personally supervised the operations of the great state railroads, in-  staling American lounging cars and  sleeping cars.  fhe simplicity in which the royal  family lives is remarkable. They  rarely occupy the great palace preferring to live in a villa near by.  They, are both lovers of music and  occupy seat.- in the stalls of the  Belgian opera house, rather than the  roynl bore, so they ma.y be nearer the  ������r-jhofllrn.  The private life of'the king is without a stain and he has long been called the "most, respectable ruler." The  royal couple have three, children, two  sons and a daughter, the latter being  a great favorite with the people. In a  country the'size of Belgium the ruler  becomes a quickly known personality  to his subjects and there is hardly a  spot In Belgium with which the royal  couple is not,familiar.  That is why Leon Vandarvelte, the  Socialist leader/newly appointed  minister of state in Belgium, most  democratic of all kingdoms, said to his  comrades the other day:  "Let us fight now for our king and  country as, we have always fought for  the laboring man."

This proposal is embodied in an official circular which Is being widely distributed  and has for its immediate aim the  calling of a meeting at some central  point in the Canadian prairie west at  which this object shall be discussed  by representatives of .the Dominion  and provincial governments, the business and producing Interests, as well  as financial institutions and the railways.; ; ':''."������������������'���������  It appears the Regina board of trade  has had a definite plan under consider-,  ation for some' time past. This circular points out that the world's greatest need In the near-future must be  food, that is the opportunity of Canada, which thus will be able to meet  its obligations on the . tremendous,  amounts of capital invested in the Dominion during recent years. But for  the last couple of years the increase  in area under crop in Western Canada  has^'not been so great as it should  be under normal conditions of immigration and cultivation. At the present time Canadian cities are full of  unemployed thrown on their own resources through stoppage of railway  construction, city building and the  like. Thousands of these laborers  were engaged in farming operations  before coming to Canada. At the same  tinie.it is estimated that one hundred  thousand heavy horses are now standing idle in Canada for a like reason.  The Idea then is to get these people  and horses on to the land and a rough  estimate is that several million acres  may rapidly be brought into crop by  this means. Land values have fallen  and especially some of the over-large  land companies might be willing to  part with some of their holdings on  better terms to the farmer. The object/therefore, of the proposed movement is toturn to good use these  unproductive agencies. In such a  movement, the Regina board of trade  is assured of the hearty and enthusiastic co-operation of Winnipeg financial business interests. '���������-.  SOI  RE SOLDIERS  WITH THE ALLIES  NATIVE  TROOPS  OF AFRICA  ARE  FIGHTING FOR THE FRENCH  France Stakes Fate on Her Artillery  The French army today claims the  most deadly rapid field guns yet devised and the' fate of France and the  fortune of her arms in this war depend largely on her grey guns and  her artillerymen in pantaloons of  blue. Just as Germany has staked all  on the men, so has France elected to  trust to her fort and field artillery.  Germany has wittingly shut her eyes  to the awful carnage of -which the  French guns are capable, hoping to  rush and capture them by infantry.  France is gambling that her guns will  be able to annihilate any force that  comes within their range. And she is  ready to sncrilice any number of her  own infantry merely to protect her  guns from capture, to keep them in  action.  Which system will win? This is  the question that military experts the  world over are asking as they watch  the mighty forces hurled at each other  along the Franco-German frontiers.  Both systems really date back to the  time of the great Napoleon,-after having been tried out with varying success in the Franco-Prussian war of  1870 and in the Russo-Japanese war of  1905. While the Germans have powerful cannon and the French have wonderful infantry, each army has been  built up on directly diverging and  highly specialized lines. The Germans  have admittedly the best massed  troops as the French have admittedly  the best artillery.  The quick firing of massed cannon  at clcsc range into large bodies of  troops, and particularly the firing of  these eanron at unexpected points,  made Napoleon master of Europe.���������  Leslie's.

Black and Yellow S.oldiers Who Live  Under the French Flag Are Now  Rendering Valiant Service���������Are Veterans of Previous Wars.  No troops, fighting under the Tricolor have resisted more desperately the German advance than have the  Turcos. On at least one occasion  their charge put to utter rout an opposing body of Germans. On another  occasion they were able, to get close  to the German lines before it was discovered that they were enemies, their  khaki uniform having deceived the  Germans, who thought it was the dull  grey of their own men. in charging  home they have exhibited an impetuosity that quite equals the best French  traditions and there seems every reason to believe that when properly led  they will be among the most valuable  soldiers that can be employed against  the common foe. The Turcos are the  native black and yellow troops of  Africa wlio live under the French flag.  Many of them are of Arab blood and  to fight is as natural for them as io  eat. Moreover/France, like Britain,  has employed native troops for two  generations to put down risings of  hostile natives and the Turcos will  have more right to call themselves  veterans than any of the soldiers  fighting in!the'kaiser's army.  .Nor is this the first time they have  been employed, on European soil. In  the Franco-Prussian war, France called upon some of. her legions from Algiers and if she" Had called upon more  of them it is possible that the war  would have had a different ending. At  Wisenburg the Turcos drove back the  German infantry -with heavy loss, and  under McMahon at Worth they hacked their way through the solid German ranks. Although they were not  then fighting for their fatherland the  French blacks displayed all the qualities necessary in a soldier. Since then  they have been brought closer to  France. The policy of the French government has been to impress the natives in her colonies with the magnificence and importanca of the  French nation. It is only a few  months ago that,* in pursuance, of this  wise policy, the French war office  brought several companies of Sene-  gambians to Paris. It was said that  the idea was to show the citizens of  France what magnificent specimens of  manhood were to be found in the  French colonies. The real reason for  the visit was to impress the native  troops with the magnificence of  France.       ���������  Their appearance excited a tremendous furore. They became society  pets, were taken everywhere, shown  everything, and honors Were showered upon them. Naturally enough,  when they went home they loudly  sounded tho praises of the French  people, and are said to have aroused  great enthusiasm among the entire  native population. It is partly as a  result of this enthusiasm that from  Dahomey, Algeria, Senegambia, Morocco, French Guinea and the French  Congo have come to the French war  office requests from thousands arid  tens of thousands of natives who  desire the privilege of going to France  and repelling the German invader.  Thinking, as most of us do, of the  incomparable extent of British colonial possessions, we lose sight of the  fact that in Africa alone the French  flag flies over more than 30,000,000  people. This is a tremendous reservoir, upon which France may draw  for years, should the war last that  long.  How many thousands of drilled  black and yeilow troops France could  place in the field is not konwn. The  army decree of December, 1900, undoubtedly contemplated the use of the  native troops in Europe. By that  order the French colonial army was  reorganized, and while it was stated  that the organization was chiefly for  the defence of the colonies, it was  provided that these troops might as  called upon for service in any part of  the world where French interests  were at stake. When the French  brought the'Turcos and Sphasi to Eur-  ope in 1870, there was very general  criticism of the act, based upon the  grounds that there was something  barbarous in the idea of pitting black  men against whites. It was pointed  out that the success of the blacks was  a disaster to be guarded against even  more than their failure. If they were  taught that tliey could defeat one  race of white men, they might become  seized of the idea that they could also  defeat any other race, and might even  turn ��������� ; ainst France.  This idea was put forward again  and again in the course of the war  between Rusoia and Japan and wo  were told that the victory of the Japs  had fired all Asiatics witli a spirit of  militarism that boded ill for their  European rulers. There is also the  objection raised that nearly all the  black and yellow troops that could  be put in the field by France'liuI Brit-  by the kaiser hasvbeen satisfactorily  solved, it will be time to solve the  problem created by the success of the  Mohammedan troops.���������Toronto Mail  and Empire.  STRUCTURE   HAS   NO   EQUAL  New Quebec  Bridge a  Marvel  of Engineering Skill  The new bridge now in course of  construction across the St. Lawrence  River near Quebec City, to replace  the immense cantilever bridge which  collapsed on the 29th of August, 1907,  when approaching completion, is 3,239  feet long between the faces of the  abutment, has one 140-foot approach  span at the south end, two spans aggregating, 269' feet at the north end,  and provides-far two lines., of railway  and two footways. There is no provision made for highway traffic.  The bridge, is 88 feet wide, and like  the Forth Bridge in Scotland has a  clear height above extreme highwater  of 150 feet, so as not to interfere with  the passage of steamers to and from  the portt,of Montreal.  It consists of Jj\vo, immense pairs  of cantilevers, borne on two piers, in  the river, with a suspended span between them. According to the "British Engineer," it is as If two-thirds  of the Forth Bridge were taken except that it is built of plates and bars  instead of tubes. The vertical post  over the piers is the largest single  piece of this type ever constructed.  The fabrication of the different  pieces of ironwork has been going on  for the last yea-r and a 'half; at.'Hie  shop.:; of the St. Lawrence Bridge  Company, Montreal, especially built  for carrying out this work.  Some idea of the difficulty the contractors have had to contend with  may be gained from the fact that, in  addition to constructing an entirely  new plant for the work, they had to  face the problem of constructing a  bridge which has no equal in bridge  construction, with an untried equipment and a new organization. Under  these circumstances the difficulties of  constructing an ordinary bridge  which would have been great, were  considerably increased; by the unusually stringent specifications governing the work and the unprecedentad  size, of its members.  Until the bridge Is completed in  1916, the railway traffic between the  north and south shores of the St.  Lawrence, is to be handled by a special car ferry vesseljust completed in  England.        .."���������!'���������'  FAVORABLE OUTLOO  OFTR  ECONOMIC ILLS MORE IMAGINARY  THAN  REAL  y To A" Citizens  Tlie Hereford Times, under the  above heading, offers the following advice which might well be heeded by  all loyal people throughout the empire.

Avoid waste.  Do not store goods and create an artificial scarcity to the hurt of others.  Remember that it/is an act of meaa  and selfish cowardice.  Do not hoard gold. Let it circulate.  Try to make things easier, not more  difficult.  Remember those who are worse off  than yourself. Pay punctually wli t  you owe, especially to your poorest  creditors, such as washerwomen and  charwomen.  If you are an employer, think of  your employed. Give them work and  wages as long as you can, and work  short time rather than close down.  If you are employed, remember the  difficulties of your employer. Instead  of dwelling on you:* own privations,  think of the indefinitely worse state of  those who live at the seat of war aud  are not only thrown out of work, but  deprived of all they possess.

Explain to the young and the ignorant what war is, and why wc have  been forced  to wage it.  ain are Mohammedans and that ;o  permit them to slaughter Christians  of one.race would be a mere incitement for them to slaughter those of  another nation. Britain, however, who  probably knows more about the prj-  blem of governing Mohammedans  than all the rest of tho nations put  together, has come to the conclusion  that the kaiser is a more dangerous  foe at the present time than any Mah-  di, and will place some of her Indian  army in the field.

After the problem constitute!  A Gigantic Creamery i  Australia has the largest creamery j  in the world. It is "some pumpkin'" j  if we may judge from the following,  description from the pen of an Aus-'  tralian writer:  "A few weeks ago the big Byro!?  Bay Co-operative Butter Factory, in  New South Wales, added another record to the many that it has put up  in tho past. It output no less tha*:  200 tons of butter in������ seven days. The.  season has been late, owing to a dry  .summer, but tho rains arriving at  last characterized the autumn with a  wonderful growth of grass, and the  crws have apparently been trying to  make up for lost lime in the l-ictuticn  period. Besides the turnover in butter, this factory handle* more pigs  per week than cny other farmers'  concern in Australia.  "It used to be said that there wa*:  a larger butter factory in America  than the Byron Bay. But the writer  a couple of years ago tried to get  particulars for comparative purposes  without success. Apparently tho  American factory was satisfied they  did not come up to the colossal Australian.  "The double advantage of the Byron Bay factory is that the whole oi  the money in it belongs to tho suppliers, who also see that the management is entirely in their own hands.  An object lesson to farmers, this  concern  Is unique."  This is a Time For Heroic  Efforts to  Keep the  Busi:*iess  of the  Country  Going���������Prospects   Are   Bright   For  All Kinds of Legitimate Business.  Canadians are showing symptoms of  an acute attack of economic neurasthenia. No one can accuse us of being  afrab'. to fight. Chow us a German  and we will tackle him without hesitation: What we are afraid to do is to  go on living. Instead of composedly  and cheerfully taking up each day a  task as the day appears wo are trembling in anticipation of unimaginable  scarcity and poverty. It is not hard  times that we expect, we have them  already. It is not simply hard times  made harder by war. We could understand that and meet it. it is  times so stark and inflexible that iron  is in comparison as a sponge and the  traditional poker pliant as a thread.  More prosaically, it is something  formless, vast and ghostly, the more  dreadful because our reason gives it  no shape. If we were all to be doomed  to death by slow starvation we should  scarcely be more frightened.  We may adm: that the war will disturb- trade, remove bread-winners from  their homes, pile up private and public debts, and generally mitigate the  ���������prc&perity of the recent past. It is  veil to be prudent, to eschew luxury,  to avoid over-production, and to provide means for helping the specially  unfortunate. Having said this we  have said it all. The sun will shine,  the harvest will ripen, ad the staple  commodities will have to be produced  and there will be just as much fool  and money in Canada next February  as there was last February.  Fear is one of the greatest force-J  which operates in the human breast.  In its two forms of worry and of terror it shapes much of the course of  human conduct. Its chosen a~3nt is  the imagination. Its chief activity is  enming bridges before one comes to  them.  If anything will precipitate financial  disaster it is this mood of dread. President Wilson has vigorously pointed  this truth out to our neighbors in the  south. Our economic ills, like some of  our physical aliments, are born and incubated in our thinking. When householders get panic-stricKen and buy-  flour by the half dozen barrels instead  of by the bag the price of flour niu3t  go up. The;demand exceeds the supply and prices must rise. What  seems to be a vindication of the forethought is only a consequence of the  folly. When merchants, manufacturers, loan companies and banks run for  shelter their flight transforms the  wind into a whirlwind. When everybody predicts economic woe a false  prudence is developed which defeats  itself. People seek to savo money  end get no money to save.  Moreover, the shyster patriot finds  his excuse for grinding the faces of  the poor. The coal merchant, with his  bunkers filled at last year's buying  price, hangs a flag out of his upstairs  window iand adds a dollar lo the selling price of each ton. Bread, meat,  sugar, potatoes���������the traffic in none of  which has been affected���������are racing  up the scale. It is to defeat such  scurrilous avarice, itself terrified yet  preying on the terror of others, that  the British government has taken  over the flour mills of Britain.  Let it be repeated that this is a  time for economy. It is also a time  for heroic effort to keep the business  of the country going. -It is> a tinio to  shorten sail, or run the screw i.t halt  speed. It is not a time tc put on a -  life-preserver and take lo the raits. II  the industry and commerce-of Canada are paralyzed this winter it will  be because the people of Canada grew  hysterical with fear of the unknown  and unlikely.  Consider: the dearth is more likely  to follow the war than to accompany  it. And then it can be more advantageously met, when the stress and  frenzy of the fighting is past. War  m..kes work in many ways. Enormous  sums of money are distributed to the  producers of many articles. Farmers,  manufacturers of boots and clothing,  coal miners, and all the middlemen  who handle these things will be uncommonly busy. The taking of so  many men out of their jobs opens  doors to the unemployed. It is when  the war is closed and the disbanded  troops come home that the trouble  is expected. The great panic of the  Napoleonic period was in 1813, when  his power had been broken by the disastrous campaign in Russia. Let us-je  cheerful yet awhile.���������.lournr.i of Commerce.
