The department of agriculture  provides the instructor and pays his  expenses.supplies the packing paper  and tables, and bears the cost of  fruit . and ail other legitimate expenses except that of the pi cretarial  work,'the rout of the hal! and its  beating and lighting. Local fruit  will be used where possible, and the  department will pay the legitimate  market price as determined by the  Instructor or inspector. At the time  of making application for the packing school the responsible organization is to reserve 2\ to 3 boxes fruit  for each pupil. The harder varieties,  such as Ben Davis, are preferred It  need not'be graded, but must be in  good condition and not smaller than  2\ inches in diameter. If no local  fruit is obtainable, the department  should' be notified.at the time the  application is uiade for   the  school.  In addition'to the packing work,  modern methods aud equipment for  packing, packing for exhibition, and  the fruit marks act,  will be studied.  Pupils who score 75 per cent in  the packing school and put up a  creditable pack for the department  prizes, the following autumn, will receive a diploma certifying to the  same from the department.  The department expects that the  instructor will be met on his arrival  by some . responsible person, who  should   provide   him   with  all  the  will be dealt with, ajong with many  other points of interest.  The pupils will provide their own  pruning tools, the, necessary tools  being a pair of pruning sheare, a  saw and a pocket whetstone. A  pruning pole and a light ladder may  also be necessary for large trees.  The department expeets that the  instructor will be met on his arrival  by some responsible person, who  can provide him with all the necessary information, so as to get the  school under way without loss of  time.  It hardly seems necessary to present to the fruit growers of this district the important advantages to be  gained from a pruning school Prun  ing is one of the important operations in the production of first-class  fruit, and on which the orchardist  can not have too much Information.  EWS OF THE CITY  Able addresses were delivered in  the Baptist church by Rev. A. A.  McLeod, late of India, who spent  the first of the week in tbe city in  the interest of the evangelistic.medi-  cal and educotional work he represents among the Telogus. He left  on Wednesday for Penticton. He  had many interesting things to tell  of the transformation of native character through the dynamic of the  gospel.

The  Fund has not merely to spend its  money. Much of its energy is devoted toward safeguarding itself against  the greedy and the unscrupulous;  But for tbe thorough work of the  head office and branches many thou-  sands of dollars would have been  given to persons' not entitled to assistance. To get through tbefirst year of  its existence, therefore, on a combined expenditure of 870,000 is a  feat to be proud of. By far the  yn a er part of this amount was covered by the bank interest earned on  deposits, so that the actual impair  ment of the Fund only amounted to  65 cents for every   $i00 of expendi  ture.  Mr. Nation said it was tbe intention of tbe Fund to keep $2,000,000  in reserve to be expended for the  benefit of disabled ana crippled  Canadian soldiers.  Private Brewer related his ex-**  perienci-s on the battlefield prior to  and at the time he was wounded.  At the conclusion of his remarks he  rrsumed his seat  amid   tumultuous  Pruning Schools  In 1914, the first year pruning  schools were offered, twenty-five  were held, and in 1.915 the number  increased to forty-seven. A.s these  these scho ils proved to be very  beneficial to the fruit growers, the  department has decided to offer  them again. Some rpquests have  already been made, and as there  will uiidoubtedly-be a big demand  for them, it is hoped that applications will be placed as soon as possible.  The df-parlmeht of agriculture  will provide a competent instructor,  and pay his expen-es. Tbe local  ad minit-t ration of the pruning  schools will be placed in   the   hands]  ing lifted up to such a peerless position of moral and intellectual, worth  that they are compelling recognition  by the government, as well as by  j the high cast Brahmans, in filling  positions of responsibility for the  couutry; and these people now are  one of the main bulwarks of the  British in their beneficent rule of  Indian empire. Since tbe war began  '���������The Ravi," a Telugu periodical  issued by the Baptist missionaries  and giving large space to review of  the great conflict, has more than  quadrupled its subscription list.  Mr. McLeod regards India, as a  who e, quite loyal to the British.  PROGRESS ON  HOPE CUT-OFF  the Coquihalla division of the  Kettle Valley railway between Hope  and Brodip Siding is all completed  with the exception of building one  steel bridge over Ladner creek- and  the laying of approximately four  noiles of steel, states C. R. Shinn,  superintendent for the Guthrie-  McDougali company, on the work  of constructing the snowsheds  along the line. In an interview recently he stated the work of erecting  the snowsheds would be completed  about the middle of next month  andthat the line in all probability  be completed by tbe first of January.  In all there are about one and one-  half miles, of snowsheds extending  over about four miles of track. In  the erection of these breastworks  against the snow some 13,000,000  feet of lumber will be used and  about 600,000 pounds of steel. The  lumber is being supplied by mills at  Vancouver, no less than fifteen mills  being engaged on the contract. ,The  lumber itself will cost in the neighborhood of $25,000  The Coquihalla-division is fifty  miles in length arid when completed  will mean, a big saving in mileage  in the route to the coast. At the  present time it is necessary to go to  Spence's Bridge, which is a roundabout way. The Guthrie McDong II  company have had 400 men at'work  on the snowsheds since August last.  , ,    ,      r, , | of a 'responsible   local bodv, such as  applause.

For .thousands or  years the tide of war has swept by its  shores, and there have been foought  battles which rank among the most  sanguinary ever .recorded. Mow Great  Britain, France and Italy are aiding  their ally,' Russia, in the attempt, to  force the gateway to the Black Sea,  which lies through the Dardanelles,  the Sea of Marmora and the Bosphor-  us. Only three score years ago Turkey, Great Britain and France were  banded -together as allies, with Russia as .their common foe, and the battles fought on the shores of the Black  Sea stand���������or did stand until the present war���������as synonymous for liercc-  ness in warfare.  It was just sixty years ago on Sept.  !), 1855, that: the ; British" French and  Turkish allies entered Sebastopol after a siege which had lasted, nearly  eleven months and which' was characterized, by many 'deeds ;' of desperate  valor. In '-the, war which was principally fought on ; the Crimean Pen insula, ofi'the northern .shore of the  Black Sea, the valor displayed by both  sides at Inkerman and Balaklava���������the  scene of tbe immoral "Charge of the  Light Brigade'���������was repeated at Sebastopol, tlie Redan and MalakoiT. The  assailants were successful on Sept. S,  but were forced to retire, and in the  night the Russians, after destroying  the-remnants of their fleet and a large  part of the town, crossed'to the northern forts^ The triumphant allies entered Sebastopol on Sept. !), 1855. and  this marked the beginning of-the end  of the war. '  By the treaty ending the Crimean  jwar the Black Sea was opened to the  commerce of 'all nations, but in 1871  the neutralization of the sea was abrogated by the powers, and .Russia  was hemm'ed in by the strong fortifications' built" by trie. Turks. At the  close of the^Crimean war Russia was  debarred from fortifying her Black  Sea ports or maintaining a navy on  the sea, but she later cast off this  restriction, and for thirl y years the  czar-has had -a. considerable navy on'  his southern sea.  The Sebastopol of today is an important and prosperous city, well fortified, but it is far eclipsed in commercial ,iniport-y-.ee by Odessa, which  has a population of nearly 650,000.  Odessa is the great shipping port for  ;Russian grain, but since the-begin-'  'ning of the "war its great artificial  harbor has been the abode of idleness.  Vast quantities of grain are stored in  Ihe Odessa ��������� warehouses, which are  built, on the narrow belt of lowland between the bluffs and the shore, the  city itself occupying a succession of  cliffs which rise to a height of 200  feet.  The Black Sea���������called the Ponlus  Euxinus by the ancients���������derives its  modern name from the color of its  waters, which are blue-black. The  bottom is covered with sulphur-impregnated mud- In its' greater part  the sea is very deep, ranging from  5,500 to 8,500 feet. The surface water  contains little salt.  It is a cosmopolitan population  which dwells along the shores of the  Black Sea. The southern shore,  stretching from Constantinople to  Caucasia, is bold and high, and the  Turk is supreme along its entire  length. The eastern and northern  shores belong to Russia, while  Roumania and Bulgaria front.on tho  western shore. Every stage of humanity, from savagery to civilization, may  be seen in  a tour of the  Black Sea.  Will Manufacture Big- Guns  Conference Held in Ottawa by Financiers and Masters of Industry  Canada has done so well in the manufacture of shells that tlie British  government is going to let hoi" try her  hand in the manufacture of big guns  and field ordinance, including 12-inch  howitzers and-18-pounders. It is a big  contract in' comparison with which  even the difficult task of making completed shells looks simple. But over  100 of Canada's Avizards of finance and  masters of industry met in Ottawa recently to give it consideration. , At  the conclusion of the conference, at  which Major Mahan, of the war office,  outlined the situation, a .committee  of 20 was appointed, comprising financiers, manufacturers and members of  the shell committee to' consider the  practical and financial feasibility of  undertaking such work. The committee will meet at the call of the chairman,   Sir John  Gibson, ;of  Hamilton.  The proposal, it is~ understood, involves the estao.ishment of a central  plant, at which parts made by a yar-.  iety of firms will be assembled. The  plant will probably be under government control and Canadian banks will  probably finance the .establishment  of the plants-primarily.  ., The proposal follows upon the visit  "of D. A. Thomas, representative ��������� of  Lloyd George, and. Major Mahan, of  the war office, to Canada. Mr.^Thomas  investigated . trie Canadian shell factories and has apparently been .well  satisfied with the work, and convinced  that even. larger work can be accomplished in the Dominion. In a short  speech to the conference, Gen. Sir Sam  Hughes declared that when the first  order for J20,000 shells was received,  it seemed like a tremendously formidable task, but that a week or so was  now all that was required to--turn out  such a consignment- Gen. Hughes expressed the opinion that Canada-was  capable of doing anything she turned  her hand to.  A Pathetic Romance  Belgian     Maiden    Heartbroken  When  British   Lieutenant  Meets  Death  A pathetic romance of the war has  bGen disclosed by the death in a little  village  near  Poperinghe  of. a  pretty  Belgian girl of 19.years.  'Some month's ago a number of British officers were billeted 'af the ���������house  of the igirl's" father, who is a retired,  forage   contractor,    owning  considerable  property.    Among , them  was a  tall,  handsome" young lieutenant,  the  younger son' of a- well- known peer's:  oro'ther.   . .    ~"���������  He' fell ill suddenly, .and expressing-  a wish to be allowed to remain where  he was instead-of. being sent back to'  the hospital,'was nursed to health by  his host's daughter., He conveyed his  deep gratitude to the girl,- and-gave;  her a souvenir in the form of a sta-.  tuette of a British officer, modelled by.  himself from a fragment of a German  shell. '������������������������������������.-,.  ':  A short time afterward the officers  were removed further up the line .and  although the girl and her patient had  been the greatest friends it is doubtful if she knew the full extent of her  affectioiivfor him, 'which'������������������'she"was care*  fur-to;trjMo"conceal. "'-���������*. \,���������'.���������':"��������� ���������"'  He had*been gone only a week when  she heard through one of his brother,  officers that he had-".been-killed, and  the girl was "no longer able to. keep  her secret.. She confessed to her  father that she had tried to forget, but  could not. Thenceforward every" day  saw her grow paler and thinner- Finally she took to her bed and died a  few weeks later, death being due,- according to the doctor, to grief acting  on  a naturally  fragile  constitution.  The Kaiser's Whins  The German Emperor is now main-  lv concerned to prove that the war is  none of his work, llis conscience, he  tells his countrymen, is clear '"before  God and history;" surrounded by  treacherous enemies, .he was forced  into the fight "for "Germany's right and  honor." This is a thesis still pretty  universally popular among all classes  of Germans; from the point of view of  competent stage management the  kaiser does well to insist upon it now  that the proud hopes of speedy triumph have vanished and the real  characteV of the terrible struggle in  ���������which Germany. is engaged is being  forced upon the consciousness of the  German people through all the shouts  of victory-���������London Daily News.  Rope as Strong as Steel  Of the flexible ropes suitable for  power transmission a manila rope is  just as strong as a solid steel bar,  weight for weight, though only about  LIVss per cent, as strong per equal  cross section. Leather, on tiie other  hand, is only about 5 per cent, as  strong as a steel bar of equal cross-  section, and less than 10 , ��������� cent, as  strong per cquai weight of material,  says Tin export writing in the current  Power.  Records show that rope manufaetur-  ietl from the libra of palms was used  Mil Hgypl long before I lie days of  Christianity. Such ropes were found in  the tombs of Reni-llassan C'.OOO B.C.)  'and on the walls^of thes: same tombs  are illustrations'depicting tlie preparation of hemp. Carvings found in tombs  in Thsbes represent the process of  making rope from thongs of leather,  about lt;00 B.C., and Assyrian sculptures of about. 50 years later show  gigantic hauling operations performed  with rope. These records arc of particular interest as indicative of the  steps through which rop:* manufacture  passed in the early ages.���������Power-  One day--so the story goes���������an  Austrian general, his moustache well  waxed and scented, called on General  von I linden burg fo collaborate with  the latter on some staff plans. The  visitor, after bowing himself info the  presenc,. of the Prussian veteran, began, "Field .Marshal, I have the honor���������"  "Yes," broke in tlie Prussian bulldog. "I know you have the honor, and  1 the work, so'be brief.-'  PARCEL POST SERVICE  The sosdy person applied to a  weathly citizen for help,, and received  the small sum of five cents. The giver  remarked as hc handed him the-pittance: "Take it, you are welcome;  our ears are always open to the distressed."  "That may be," replied the recipient., "but never before in my life have  1 seen so' small an opening for such  large ears."  ������3  s  Opportunities for Dispatch to Mexico  Occur Rarely  The post office despartment announces that, owing to unsettled conditions in Mexico, no opportunity for  the dispatch of-.parcermails for Mexico has occured for some time past.  Parcels now held. by -the department  will be sent forward at the first available opportunity, but it is not known  when  one is likely to occur.  The parcel post service to Russia,  via England, Norway air". Sweden,  has heen suspended, but the service  via England and Sweden is still open  and there is now a direct sea service  from England to Archangel.  Still Favors Ross Rifles  Major-General Sir Sam Hughes has  returned from England as strong as  ever in the faith of the Ross rifle!  During his visit to the other side the  minister of militia devoted considerable time to stirring- up things connected with the Canadian gun-  Sir Sam Hughes says that the rifle  equipment of the entire second division has been changed back, and the  altered Ross rifle is again in use.

"***���������*--  " "Canned?" Not at all! But while  Uncle Sam's expert agriculturist; O. H.  Benson, was busy with "these and a  hundred other truths which formed  part of his lecture at the Chicago Normal school recently, a dozen children  under the direction of Miss Mary  Ryan were, demonstrating modern,  scientific methods in canning those  same fruits and vegetables which were  heralded as essential to health.  . Now with the demonstration in  mind���������it was given in the Parker gymnasium before 150 teachers and mothers���������what scene does you mind picture? Steaming pots and kettles, a  roaring fire, flushed, tired faces stamped with the "Wish it were done" expression? Goodness no! Instead, the  youthful cooks wore spotless little  aprons and actually smiled while they  worked, as if they liked it, and perhaps they did. There -was nothing  laborious or wearying about it���������the.  way they did it.  For "canning," the way mother used  to do it, is hopelessly out of date, and  that was the lesson lecturers and demonstrators sought to teach, and the lesson they will teach every day from 10  o'clock until noon, at the same place,  during the remainder of the week.  "Wc eat too #.111011 meat���������waste our  fruits and vegetables���������use too many  pa,tent  medicines.    Now���������"  And Mr. Benson paused.to give his  words time lo sink in and to smile a  big. broad smile.    Then���������  "Here." he said, "is the slogan I  want Chicago. Cook county, and the  whole state of Illinois to adopt: A  quart of fruit., a quart of vegetables,  and a quart of greens for every family  for every day in the year!"  That, he said, will insure the complete absence of physical ailments due  to overeating or improper diet.  Canning equipment, canning processes, and last of all, a long list, of  canning recipes were discussed and  demonstrated for the benefit of the  audience.  The "cold pack" method of canning  was indorsed as the easiest, most satisfactory and  most practical  for  the  average home or farm. It is the method employed in the great canning factories of the country, Mr. Benson said,  and can be employed in the honie just  as feasibly as on a large scale.  Here is Mr. Benson's explanation of  the "cold pack" process:  "The 'cold pack' method ot canning  simply means that the fruits, are packed in their fresh and natural state in  the glass jar or container/ Syrupis applied and the sterilization is done in  the jar or container after it/is partly  sealed, thus making it impossible for  bacteria, spores, and molds to-enter or  comeiin contact with the food product  after the sterilization has taken; place.  "By this method vegetables are  blanched in boiling hot water, plunged  quickly in cold water, skins removed,  then packed in container and sterilized in partially closed glass jar or the  perfectly sealed tin can. By this method all food products, incluclinggeneral  fruits, vegetables, and meats can be  successfully sterilized in a single, period, with but one handling of the product." -'���������������������������'���������!: .;; .'���������'.;'..���������  Recipes for canning apples and  their by-products and several kinds of  soup -were sponsored by the lecturer.

Remove jars, tighten covers,  invert to cool, test joints. Wrap in  paper; store. Time of heating must  be varied according to ripeness and  condition of fruit. Use just enough  time to sterilize perfectly: not enough  to change color or reduce pulp to  sauce. Firm and tart apples may be  cored and peeled first, then canned.  ���������Use second grade windfalls or culls.  Wash', core, pars, remove decayed or  injured spots. .

Reducing Sweet Apple Cider to  Syrup.���������Wash apples, remove decayed  and worm eaten spots, press out juice  as' usual for older making. Be sure  juice does not ferment or "work." The  sterilizing, reducing vat, or kettle  should be a third h.rger than required  to hold contents.  Add five ounces powdered calcium  carbonate to fourteen gallons of apple cider. Boil in kettle or vat. five  minutes. Pour liquid into vessels, pre-  ferablv glass jars or pitchers, allow to  pt'-'-udsix or eight hours, or until perfectly " clear. Pour clear liquid into  preserving kettle". Do not allow sediment at bottom to enter. Add to clear  liquid one Ln-el teaspoonful of lime  carbonate, stir thoroughly. Boil down  rapidly to a clear liquid.  Use'density* gauge or candy thermometer and bring it up to 220 degrees F., or without the thermometer  reduce bulk to one-seventh original  volume. To see whether cooked  enough, pour a little of it. into cold  water.   It should have the consistency.  of maple sugar, it should'not be cooked long en"ough to harden like candy-  when tested. When-test shows syrup  cooked enough pour into fruit jars,  pitchers, etc., and allow to cool slowly.  Slow cooling is important, otherwise  suspended matter will not settle properly and syrup will be cloudy.' The  white sediment which settles* out during cooling is a harmless compound,  of lime with natural acid of the apple.  When' syrup is'cooled it should lie  stored in fruit .jars or bottles. Place  the rubber.cap or cork in position and  tighten. Sterilize for twelve minutes  in hot water or wash boiler outfit, tea  minutes in water seal outfit, eight-  minutes in steam, .pressure outfit under five pounds of steam, or n\e minutes in aluminum pressure cooker under fifteen pounds of pressure.  Apple syrup made by this method is  a very palatable and high grade product.

The War and Employment  ; In some measure the war has*solved  the labor problem which itcreated- It  has led to exceptional activity in many-  trades; the Armies require guns, rifles,  shells, uniforms and many other im-  pedients of active service, and thereby  work has been furnished which has absorbed a-great deal of displaced labor.  The country has consequently on its  hands no great masses of men and  women without' means of earning a  livelihood, as it was feared would ho  the case. There is, in fact, less unemployment throughout the country than  has been experienced for many years,  and so long as the contest lasts and the  various demands of our fighting forces  ai.d those of our allies have to be met  we have no reason to fear an acute  development of this particular embarrassment.���������London Daily Telegraph.

In the Milk Room  Valuable Advice  For the   Handling  of  Milk in a Sanitary Manner  Milk ought to be handled so that  none of it'is spilled about the premises. It. is difficult to remove from  wooden articles, even when freshly  spilled. Wooden buckets are undesir-  al)le,--requiririg more labor to keep  clean than.tin ones. Galvanized iron,  coppcr'an'd zinc for table tops and' a  concrete floor in the milk room' are  combinations that aid in and simplify the work of sanitation. After  washing-with hot water the hose may  ho turned on the inside, of the room,  thus cooling it and washing away  ' dust and foreign material simultau-  souly- ' ��������� '  '  Sunlight is a destroyer-of disease,  ger-ms, but it is impracticable to'havc'  it where milk, cream and butter are  kept in summer. The buckets, separator parts and cans should be set  where the sun will roach them during*  the greater part of "the day, preferably under" a cover of wire screen to  exclude fliessfroin them. The milk  Toom can be'kept cooler if vines trail  over it, and.if the interior is darkened. A, good plan is to hang some  coarse stuff like gunny sack material  over ���������the- windows and keep "it wet;  tho evaporating water absorbs a great  deal of heat and aids materially in  reducing  the temperature  inside.    . ;  y  Minard's   Liniment   Cures-Dandruff.

Moving* the Wheat  Transportation Charges on Grain  Shipments of Interest to the  Grower "  -Available information seems-to,.indicate that the railways have made  adequate provision for moving the  wheat crop to tide water. When the  western tanner is relieved of tlie  anxieties connected with harvesting  and threshing his crop his next anxiety is the uncertainty which .'surrounds the rate which he wilt have to  pay for transportation. West of the  head of'thc lakes tne maximum rate  is fixed by tire Dominion Railway  Commission; east of the head of the  lakes .the'-rate is affected by' the  amount of-.lonnage. This year the war  lias created a certain degree ot scarcity 'of tonnage and consequently the  rate for shipping wheat east ot the  head of the lakes may be slightly  higher, .- although we hope that this  will not be the case. . There is clanger  o'f cargoes being." taken, away from  Canadian shippers" and sent, via the  Buffalo route, which would be of  course an injury to Canadian shipping  interests. The-task of transporting  probably more than tha usual tonnage  with a reduced number of vessels so  quickly and cheaply that the Buffalo  competition can be successfully combated is one which will tax the resources and -energy; of the lake  freighting companies; -and we hope  that. thev will be successful 'in ac*.  complishing it in a manner which" will  be as satisfactory to.the western grain  grower asx to themselves.

Manitoba    Authorities  Taking   Active  Measures to See That,Laws Are  Observed  If is evident from the activity that  is noticeable in Chief Game Guardian  Baiber's department, that special efforts are* going to be made this year(  to prevent .infractions of the game  laws and to prevent the further extinction of the vanishing game life, of  Manitoba. The.reporter called on Mr.  Barber and. found him very busy attending to the numerous 'duties of his  department, but was able 'to obtain the  following statement from him:  "The" Honorable Valentine Winkler  has instructed me to see 'hat the -Manitoba Game Protection Act is rigidly  enforced. You see, the value of animals, furs and birds taken each year,  amounts" to $1,000,000. so that the wild  life of.the province is worth looking  atfer, and we're going to look after it:  The different sportsmen's associations  are, of course, co-operating with us,  and Mr. Winkler has authorized me to  carry out promptly any suggestions  that representatives from these associations may put forward..  "As. future protection, requires increased: revenue..all sportsmen are requested and notified to take out permits and toihelp me as far as they can  in the task that is before me. I have  received particular instructions, about  shooting on Sundays and out of season, and this practice has got to.be  stopped. The federal government of  the United States has gone a long way  towards the protection of ducks and  other migratory birds and Ve shall reciprocate by doing our share in that  direction.  "The' duck season opens a little too  soon for the young birds who are often  weak on the wing, so the bag has  been limited to 20 birds per gun, per  day, and it is the intention of the department to see that this limit is not  exceeded.- Game guardians will be  posted at the railway staions and other-  points to examine permits of hunters .  leaving on. the trains and by automobiles, and to examine their bags on return. As little inconvenience and delay as possible will be caused, but  sportsmen will have to expect this and  assist the game guardians by having  their permits ready for inspection and  by turning out their bags at request."  Mr. Barber is busy marshalling his;  forces, and experienced game guardians will be posted at all the favorito  haunt.-- of the sportsmen to see that  the act is observed.

H.C  FRIDAY.  NOVEMBER  1.9,  I9'I5  ': FIGHTING MEN FTRST''  A little band of heroic New  Zealand  nurses  faced   .death  on the British transport Mar-  qnette, torpedoed by a   German underwater pirate.    The  usual opportunity for "women  and children first" was theirs.  The  willing  rescuers   waited  but a moment for  these  Red  Cross  workers���������the clear answer to their cell was, "Fight-  ' ing men first!"    These nurses,  true" to both British and   Red  "Cross  traditions for-bravery,  self-sacrificing,   self-forgetful-  ness   for  others, flinched not  for an instant.    Face  to  face  with death, there they   stood.  It   was  a life and death moment of decision.    Their  decision   was,   "Fighting    men  first."   With  the great cause  of liberty at stake, with peril  ���������empire-wide demanding  that  every man with  liberty-winning power in.  hand live, and  that he live to strike at least  one strong blow for humanity,  ���������these heroines hold  back until the men  for the front, for  the firing line, are safe for the  high duty of the hour.  Life is  sweet  to them, sure, but  liberty for others is  sweeter  to  them. They will do their duty  even  as   men, true to empire  and home and hearts dear  to  them will do.    They.will  die.  And ten of these noble spirits  go down  with the ship that a  few   of   the   stronger __ arms,  though   not   stouter   Hearts,  may   have . a  chance to fight  for fair play  among  the   nations,  for  justice and mercy  among   the helpless  and the  weak, for the right  of peaceful industry and sweet liberty,  undisputed  and   undisturbed  among the people. Heroically  did the nurses of the  sinking  hospital   ship   also   work to  save their  waunded  charges.  Therefore"Fighting men first!"  This today, with  the  world's  best institutions imperilled at  the hands of a  ruthless, conscienceless enemy, is  the  demand of every true Canadian,  be he man or woman.

"The consumer who gc-ts a poor  (iiiality of eggs from his grocer usually buys something else the next  time he goes ���������marketing and so lessens the demand and decreases the  price.: Thus the producer suffers for  every nest eggv stale or dirty egg  that he takes to market, aud he likewise suffers Cor the mould and odor  imparted by the loose methods of the  general merchant,  "He suffers for the careless handling of the transportation company;  eggs : in cases unprotected from the  j sun on a. railway platform oi'Mn hot  : freight cars,which are little less  j than huge incubators, deteriorate rap-  1 icily.

"A system that will secure the eggs  from the producer on a candled, i.e.,  1 on a graded basis, so that he will re-  j ceive  a .first  class  price  for  a  first  class product, thereby putting a pre*  ! inium   on   freshness   and   cleanliness,  would be most helpful.  "This, coupled with transportation  under carefully guarded shipping conditions and honest handling, by the  retailers, would result in putting into  the hands of the consumer a clean,  wholesome, nutritious food product at  a price: much less than what is now-  paid for a very indifferent article  and at the same time would increase  the profits to the producer.  "When eggs can be delivered by the  producer direct to the consumer it is  an ideal way of marketing the product and should be followed more  extensively-than it is; however, only  a comparatively insjgnificant number  can "be handled in this way. The  suburban and city poultryman should  certainly stimulate "sucn a trade.

Now I always  ily   Drained   Land   Should   be   Selected   as a   Place to   Raise  Chickens  It is a mistaken idea to. imagine  that, any old place will do to raise  chickens, yet it is equally true that  there is many a place that may be  hilly, rocky or rundown that makes  it unprofitable to work or farm that  could be used as a cliicjcen farm to  an advantage. '  One thing should be continually and  firmly impressed upon your mind,  and that is that chickens will not  thrive on wet ground. Lowland is  not the place for a' chicken farm. Select the land that is high and rolling,  so that the rain will run off instead  of standing upon the place in puddles  or lakes to keep tha soil damp or else  long enough for the sun to dry it up.  Damp land means a sickly, puny  flock, in which the attendant in the  course of a year will have to battle  with about all the diseases kin to  chickens.  Damp land can be drained by using  tile drain, it is true, but this is-  rather a laborious ' as well as expensive operation against a selection  that will give the natural conditions.  By natural conditions is not uec-  cessarily meant U\p side of a hill,  yet this would not be-an objection,  "except chat it would be pretty hard  on the attendant to take care of a  plant under these conditions. Just an  easy, natural grade, with the coop or  coops on the highest point, is the  ideal condition.  The matter of soil has. a bearing on  llie drainage proposition. A clay soil  is the worst condition to encounter,  and unless there is a fairly steep  grade the. water will stand around in  puddles, making a regular miulhole  out of the runs; with gravel or sand  a different condition would exist.  Either of these is considered the  best, because, even on fiat land  water instead of standing on the  face will percolate into the soil  carry with it a good deal of the  of the yards.  lo Foilow to Prevent Contamination of Water Supply  Obviously the-   first logical step  in  securing a clean well water supply.is  .to remove all the sources of possible  contamination.   Among    the worst of  these are llie open privy vault,    the  leaching cesspool, and barnyard  lilth  A well in ordinary pervious soil located lower than, and within 100 feet  of,    any of these is almost certain to  bo polluted.    Mvcn though the well is  located on higher ground  than these  sources       of    contamination,     heavy  pumping or dry weather may so lower the ground-water level that it will  reach  the zone of contamination and  thus polute the-  well.    It   is evident  therefore,  that  the  open  privy  vault  and leaching cesspool  should  be  discarded and a sewage purification system,    or   at least a sanitary privy be  used instead. " Sewage, garbage, manure, 'of other waste should never' be  clumped    into sinks or fissures,    and  most certainly  never  into  old  abandoned Avells.   An old well    used    for  this  purpose  is 'very  likely  to  communicate directly    with    the    waterbearing stratum    from     which  other  veils in the immediate vicinity draw  their supply.    Slops    or  waste water  should   neyei;  be   thrown   out  of  the  back door or window onto the ground.  If the pigs and chickens must run at  large,    they .should at least be.kept  away   from   the   well .    A^box built  around  the  pump    and     tilled    with  manure in winter is .an extremely unsafe   way to   prevent the pump from  freezing.  Concrete   manure   pits, impervious  ! floors, and .water-tight drains are desirable  features  for    rami  buildings,  If    these    are    beyond    the farmer's  purse, the manure pile should at least  be    placed  a safe  distance  from the  well.  ' The well itself should be located  as high as possible with respect, to  buildings, stock pens, and chicken  yards, and as far away from all  sources of contamination as convenience and local surroundings will permit-  and the Cost of Living  the  sur-  aud  filth  wife  child  or wto may eid-is-ty vtith  cont:  case ,-  the -  until  lion,  Sh  with  in tli.  k4epVhtm''ih,the lu-usc" The Tablets  are sqKcI --byilmsclicine dealers or by  mail at 25 cents a box from The Dr.  Williams'   Medicine   Co.,    Brockville,  flgent foi^o,v|E  '6f married-"- iraiir^haT-F-payr* imu-Tn  kse of single men. quarter pay���������  1 :he end of the war, and in addi-.  frail hold the-posi'tfJdfts'-&T)*2i'iJHl-'!  ild any employee who is'serving  he colors, meet with a fatality  course of the war, the directors  will fj-jcbntinue the payment���������in the case  of a named man, of half pay to his  pr  immediate   family     for    six  of a single man, one-quarter of  ary to his dependents  (if any)  rnonfjns   after  his  death  and,  in  the  case  his  for s  Th  mem  service  < liL  ���������---   ������  of the company for'-'at least six  monlllijs immediately preceding the declaration of war.

Pays Expenses *  Mr. G. T. Bell, passenger traffic  manager ot the Grand Trunk System,  received a telegram from the directors of the"Panama Pacific International Exposition at San Francisco, stating  that-the exposition is now out ot debt-  Most of the immense cost of erecting  the exposition has been met by the  tens of thousands of visitors,who have  dailv poured through the entrance  gate's of the ground. That such an  .undertaking should have proven a fin-  'aneial success is looked upon as a  striking testimony to the wonderful  nmnner with which this greatest of all  the positions was organized. A special  celebration was held in San Francisco  to mark the occasion.  A Word of Warning  Every German who boasts of his  American citizenship lias subscribed to  the following o'Cth of allegiance. "I  renounce forever all allegiance to any  foreign Prince, potentate, state or sov-  ereigntv, and particularly to the one of  which 1 was a subject." The wording  is sufficiently plain ,aiul this oath is  not to be considered a "scrap of  paper," even by'erstwhile subjects of  his most puissant monarch William  Hohenzollern. A violation of this little  Substitute'for Meat. Fish Should  be   More  Generally   Used  "lOat fish" should prove a valuable  slogan for combatting the high cost of  living. Meat has risen in price steadily within recent years, and, strangely enough, the available supply is becoming less competent to.meet the demand- It is -not surprising, therefore,  that.fisli should be looked to as a'sub-  stitute.> As a food. it is excellent, ���������  comparing not unfavorably with moat,  although' the proportions of nutritive  elements such as protein, albumen  and fat differ considerably.  Heretofore, fish has not been a popular article of. diet in Canada. The  reasons for this -fire various and soma  of them must be removed before fish  .eating can become a national habit. In  the first place, fresh sea fish in prime  condition lias * been almost unobtainable even tit points not far removed  from the coasts. This has been due  frequently, to inefficient handling of .  the fish by the fishermen and by the  distributing agencies. It has also  been due to unsatisfactory transportation and retail market ' conditions. v  These difficulties are.not insurmountable, and some of them arc already  being overcome. Education of fishermen and others who handle fish .is a  necessity that cannot be much longer overlooked. Traditional methods  of .handling must give way to more  scientific and efficient practices- Such  changes would mean increased profits*  for the fishermen, and, at the same  time, by making available la'rge quantities of food which have hitherto been  wasted, would.improve the quality and  lower the price to the consumer.  Transportation is already being improved and, in time, when;,the inland  demands-for fish warrant it, fast train  services should, and probably will, be  established from the fishing ports to  the larger inland centres. The present  offers splendid opportunities to the  fishery industry. A demand for ^fish is  already half created by the high price  and comparative scarcity of meat. But  if Canadians are to be taught to eat  fish, there must be more,enlightened  methods of producing anil handling it.  ���������A.D. '���������������������������''..

Some  horses, however, are clever enough to  associate the pain with the/circumstances that cause it and will continue  to pull unless rigged with the' rope  about their bodies. It. is a good plan  to lie a young horce in this manner  for a few times. Take a strong rope  about 20 feet in length, make a small  loop in one end that will not slip, pass  the rope'around the body in front of  the hips, pull the other end of the rope  through tlie loop and then pass the  rope through the ring on the halter.  Tie to something that is secure and  endeavor to make tho animal try  out the rope a few times. A good  strong halter is an essential part of  the equipment.  MOTHERS!

At one naval barracks he saw dry docks capable of  docking the largest dreadnoughts,  which had been built since the war began. Maps were shown the correspondent showing where the German  submarines had been sighted and on  which the results of the attacks were  classified under "captured," ''supposed  sunk,'' and "sunk." When bubbles are  /observed rising for a long time at the  'same������spot in smooth water, it is taken  [or granted that a submarine's career  lias been ended.  When .an'.officer was asked, "How  "lo-you.get them?" his answer was:  "Sometimes by ramming, sometimes  by gunfire, sometimes "oy explosions,  an<I in other ways we will not tell  of."  All  the   officers aboard the  battle-'  , ships  and   armored, cruisers  are .envious of those engaged in submarine  hunts,    which are regarded as great  sport.' ��������� -���������  '  The admiral commanding at an  important naval base told the correspondent that England had- 2,300  trawlers, mine sweepers and other  auxiliaries, outside the regular service, on -duty in the work of "blockading from the British Channel to. Iceland, and i'n keeping the North Sea  clear, and that their reservist crews  had been most zealous in their important part in overcoming the kind  of naval warfare Germany wages-  As the torpedo-boat destroyer, on  which the correspondent was a passenger, after a' cruise- at sea. and following 'the coast, turned into the  harbor where the Grand Fleet lay a,t  anchor, he saw a target being towed  fn the customary manner for firing  practice by some of the cruisers. "We  keep at it all the time," an officer  explained.  The practice of the .cruisers finish-  .cd, they took their places in fleet,  formation among the'immense fields  of gray shapes at anchor in precise  order, which as the torpedo,-boat destroyer drew-nearer became line after  line'of dreadnoughts. .-  In the tint melting into the sea  .even the Queen Elizabeth, back from  the Dardanelles, looked small for her  tonnage and-gun power unless compared with the Inflexible, the flagship  of the Falkland'Islands battle,-or the  vessels of'th< light cruiser squadron,  which just had'come in from ".sweeping*' the North Sea, as scouting is  called.  Everv deck was stripped for action  steam  was  up in every ship, and  the destroyer threaded her way, turrets were seen^turning and guns being elevated and lowered in the  course of drills. Seap'lancs which  were sailing over the fleet had their  home on a famous Atlantic liner  which lias carried many thousands of  passengers. ��������� '  In their places in the battle cruiser  squadron, which is known in the  navy as the "Cat squadi\on," wore the  Lion and Uie Tiger, which sank tho  German armored cruiser Bluecher in  the North Sea battle.-  "This seems a sufficient denial of  the German report that the Tiger is  at the bottom of the sea," said an officer.  Looking . strange among the homogenous types of the 10,-gun ships  which belonged to the regular British  navy was a Turkish twelve 12-inch gun  dreadnought taken over, at the outset  of the .war.  As the torpedo boat destroyer approached the flagship of the com'  mander-in-chief, an officer pointed  out ^ice-Admiral Sir John Jellicoe as  one of- the two officers promenading  the quarter deck.carrying a telescope  under ' his' ��������� arm- From tho quarter  deck he can keep his eye on all the  grey monsters which form the fighting part of his command while others  ol his host of ships are abroad on  different errands.  Quick of "movement and of speech,  tanned by the year of exposure  consequent on constant duty and  ;.--itli only a broad band' of gold lace  differentiating him from the other  officers, Vice-Admiral- Jellicoe received his guests, -at the gangway.

Vice-Admiral Jellicoe .-escorted his  guests through the ship, showing  them the men at ��������� drill. He also  called attention to ��������������������������� the .special machine practice of the gun spotters in firing, where the result of each shot is  displayed.  ��������� The bluejackets- are invariably  sturdy; long service men of mature  years who have been kept drilling  on. the same ship-since the war began.

A Sinister Influence.  A New Military Unit  Spe  -iai  Battalions  of  Pioneers  Going  to the  Front  A special battalion of pioneers is to  be recruited in Ottawa and other Ontario cities. Another is to be recruited  in tho west, and they will go to the  front to be attached to the two Canadian divisions there, the western battalion to be known as the first Pioneer  battalion, to be attached to the second  division. Both battalions v.'ill go/ to  the front as complete units.  This is a new military unit. Its duties will be engineering duties, such as  digging trenches, throwing bridges and  constructing roads unde short notice. Hitherto engineers only have  done this work, but now,the new battalions, which will have the status of  an infantry regiment, will be so c*r-1  ganized that it will be able to protect  itself even in the matter of machine  guns.  Germans Are Qualifying For. the*Position of the World's Outlaws  .When the authentic histories of the  wai'.coiiie to b'e written, considerable  attention is likely tobe paid to the sinister' manner in which Germany ha-;  plotted to inconvenience her enemies  ���������among whom she evidently includes  those neutrals who are supplying mun-  tions to the active belligerents.  .;: Tbe. recent Mexican raids across the  Texas border afford still another proof  of this. Two Americans were murdered and a third was spared merely because the raiders thought he was -a  German! The incident is likely to  arouse a very ugly temper in the  States, where the dislike and distrust  of the genuine Americans for the German-Americans is already beconiinga'  grave problem.  German influences are suspected in  a score of other quarters. The Koma-  gr.tu Maru, which brought that historic  cargo of Hindoos to British Columbia  shortly before the war, is known to  have been organized from Berlin. Similarly with the native riot in Singapore,  the strikes at American munition factories, the unrest in French Morocco,  the Senussi rising in Tripoli. It is  the same all ov  ��������� the world.  These treacherous machinations are  going to recoil upon the heads of the  nation that planned them, for there is  not tlie slightest doubt that all the civilized governments will discourage  German immigration after tlie recent  exposures of trie manner in which  these people abuse the new citizenship  that is granted them. This nation of  sixty-five niitlioiu of people are deliberately qualifying for the position of  the world's outlaws. Every man's hand  and tongue and pen will he against  them, and they "will find that the civilization which they l,iave''"flouted so insolently will force them and their  children and their children's children  to the third and fourth generation, to  pav a very terrible price.���������Montreal  ���������\.ail.  that is only a drop in the bucket  Some months ago we had Lord  Bryce's report on Belgium, which  ought to satisfy anyone that the  German atrocities there were both  individual brutalities by officers  and men, and official calculation.  Last month a French commission  of inquiry found.- tho enemy guilty  en . masse of ine most shocking-  crimes. ' ,   --  The whole report -of this French  commission is a ghastly revelation  of cruel cowardice, meanness and  barbarity. The ��������� Crown - Prince's  army seems to have been ��������� most  abandoned of all. Special bullets  and projectiTes have been, not only-  devised by. individual soldiers, but  manufactured in largo quantities  ���������with a view to causing more torture. "Massacres of wounded and  unwounded prisoners have been  conducted on a wholesale scale, on  some occasions as the rerult of  special order," as when the notorious  General Stengel"; ordered at Thia-  ville that no ��������� more prisoners .were  to- be made, that even * .iscners -in  large-bodies were- to be-shot clown  and that /ho- living man was to remain" behind the troops. Wounded  were shot' in bodies of 30 and 40,  and shut up in barns and burned to  death." In some cases wounded  Frenchmen have been kicked 'to  death, or had their own bayonets'  shoved down '���������--.'r throats, as' they  lay on the i,. .Uefield. -The..report  frequently sneaks of German officers, educated men, . personally doing this -devilish work. The Bavarians particularly distinguished them-'  selves- in shooting prisoners.'Jn  batches or smashing their skulls .with  rifle butts. French . \younded / were  sometimes let. die, or operated on  with mutilating and unnecessary  thoroughness;',* "Captured French doctors were treated with - the utmost  cruelty, and stretcher bearers were  fired upon.with every circumstance of  treachery."  Facts like these, published in official reports of the , French .government, must be burned into our  memories. Let us see our .barbarian foe. as he is and be under no  foolish illusions. The ���������Germans profess to hate not the French, but the  British alone. What have Ave, then,  to expect from suchfilackguards if we  do not smash them?  Tidal Prohibition Wave  The real estate and buildings in the  United States are taxed at a valuation  of $93,362,813,569, while property t'o  the value of $12,313,510,502 is exempt  from taxation  The Gas Caught the Germans  "There is a grim humor in a story  which comes from Petrograd," says a  London, Eng., paper. "Three thousand  Germans, preceded by the usual asphyxiating cloud," and with the wind  nicely behind them, advanced gaily to  storm a fort at Ossoviecs.  Then suddenly the wind changed;  the gas rolled back upon the advancing  host, and the filthy cloud, combined  with the enemy's guns, practically annihilated the column, and of three  thousand left but three. The wind can  be a dangerous ally."  Sentiment     in-    Favor  of  Prohibitory  'Laws  Rapidly Spreading  A few days ago the inland revenue  department of the United States published" its annual report, which-, showed a great falling off in the consump--  tio'n of both spirituous'liquors and-tobacco.     The   explanation     ordinarily  give'h is probably    the correct one������������������  the  solemnizing  effect  of an  almost  world-wide war���������but there may have  been    other causes at work,    among  them the widespread and progressive  reduction  in  the  number of licensed  drinking places. Some light is- thrown  on this aspect of the case by a recent  article in the Christian Science Monitor of Boston. -.'���������';���������  According to the Monitor a prohibitory law has  been in force  in West  V.irginia for a year, and the -commission charged with the duty of enforcing its reports-that the law has worked  with '"surprising success!" Among  other facts to. support this announcement, it is  stated that "violation  of  the     criminal   laws"  have   been ������cut  down one-half, and similar testimony i  mjght be obtained from every one tf  th'e eighteen "dry" states. The population of the territory within which licensed   drinking   places     have   been  abolished   amounts   to   fifty-two   millions/and more than seventy per cent,  of the area of the .whole country is  under prohibition. In a number of the  remaining states there will be enough  of  prohibition   contests  this   year  to  add   fourteen   per  cent,   to  the "dry"  area if all of the pending contests end  in victories for prohibition.  The Monitor inclines to the belief  that the recent spread of prohibition  in Canada will have some influence  on the result, and it speaks of the possibility of-the- abolition of the licensed salwons .in Qhicago being  brought about at the iiext municipal  election. Naturally the "liquor interests" aro giving attention to the coming struggle, for which they are preparing as .they have never prepared in  any previous campaign. They have  abundance of funds, and are publishing circulars designed to show that  the abolition of tiie liquor traffic  would throw out of- employment thousands of men and inflict hardships on  their families.���������Toronto Globe.  Moorehead, in  Farmci'j  There are at, least twice as many  people living iu our smaller cities,  towns and vilhiges as live in our lifly  great cities. The home market of our  larming population -living about these  smaller cities and towns is just twice  as great as the city market.- Yet we  hear much that would lead one to believe that all of the people iu this  country to be fed by the producers on  the- farm are to be found in the great  centres where the high cpst of living  seems now, more than iever, the one  great thing talked about, and to be  considered. Yet, the home market of  the farmer is his largest and best market, right at his door where he can  bring his produce every working day  in the year and sell it to the consumer  direct, without.the intervention of any  middleman whatsoever, ��������� and secure  therefor every cent without any profit  of commission lo any middleman whatsoever.  In these nine states, Wisconsin,  Missouri, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan,  New York, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania, 6,956 towns have lost population, notwithstanding the fact that the  population of the whole country increased in the decade covered, 21 per  cent. Out of the 78 county seats in  these nine states, 217, or nearly 23  ���������per cent, of them, have lost population,  though the county seat is- in many  ways the centre of most of the activities of the county unit along the line  of politics, courts,-collection of taxes  and in other directions. And, strange  to gay, this tendency of the decline  of the towns is greatest in the richest  and most thickly settled part of the  states-  What does this mean to you and to  me, and to all of the forty million people living in these towns? It means  this, a continued loss of business; it  means depreciation in property values  jn these towns; it means a depreciation in farm land value, for the betrer  the town the higher the value there  is to the land because of its proximity  to the town; it means less deposits in  your .banks; it means that you . will  have less money to lend to the farmer  and to the business man; it means the'  boys are not going to stay in thi  towns; it means that the boy is not  going to stay on the farm unless the j  town affords some attraction; it means  economic- ruin .to many of our best  interests; it means increased problems for the country and states in'mat-  ters of handling our social and political "problems in our great cities; it  means concentration of business of  every kind in the great centres; it  means the downfall of the small business man and the small banker; it  means socialism.  'What are we as, bankers and business men, going to do about it? What  does your home town most used?  First of all. it needs team work,-cooperation, first amongst bankers and  business men, and second, by all of  these and the farming communities  about us. There are too many bank-  I ers and business men in ��������� these towns,  i who arcdisldyal to each other--a lack  of confidence exists. Competition and  business rivalry have tended to make  enemies of us, rather than friends and  co-workers. The local drygoods man  cannot supply the wants of the banker's wife and" family because his stock |  is not fine enough, hence, they trade j  by mail or visit the department store. I  money  able to  Let me remind such a one that "a  town that is good enough to live in is  good enough to spend your money rn."  If you cannot spend your money where  you make;it you are suclting-t.he. life  blood; out of'bur town and you ought  to move. The lumberman and tlu  hardware merchant and their families  arejust as often guilty of the same  practice, and then they .wonder why  the town does not improve.-and their  business prosper.��������� .What, inducement  ho said: "if you spend your  where you get it, you will be  get it where you spend it."  The second great .movement that  should be inaugurated by the bankers  ami business men is that of bridging  the gulf which exist- between the-town  people and the farmer. It might be to  the advantage of perhaps one person  in ten thousand in this country to have  this gulf made wider, but no more.  There are many of our farmers, and  some living in towns, who have been  educated to believe that the home merchant is a thief and a robber, and that  the local banker is no less guilty of  sharp practices than the loan shark of  our cities. Thousands of them do not  even give the home merchants a  chance to supply their wants. (No won-  : dor the home merchant does not carry  the stock in size and quality tq. meet  the demands of some of our communities. How can he? and whv should  he?)  Thay send the money away when  they have the cash, and the home merchant is only of use and benefit when  the crops fail and when the price is  so low that they hold for a higher,  and in the meantime the merchant be-  comes the banker, in that he lends his  goods without interest and often borrows tiie money from you in order to  perforin this service. Our farmer  friends, our neighbors���������best friends���������  have become estranged from us, and  the imaginary line between the country and the town is a barrier to tho  prosperity and the co-operation, and to  the good of all. In solving this problem we will not have to work upou  all of our farmer friends and- our  neighbors, most of them are loyal to  us and to their own town, but it is  our duty to co-operate to stifle every  movement working to augument this  effort to take the trade of the farmer  away from his home town. We should  enlist every influence to join with us-  There is a great quaretet of interest  in this country, which, if tliey could  be brought together, and in the end  they will when conditions become ripe,  would work wonders for the good of  ail. I refer .to the bankers and the  business men of the towns, tho farm  press and the country paper.  The movement inaugurated by the  bankers, looking to co-operation with  other interests in the upbuilding and.  increasing of  efficiency of the  farm,  is the great movement of the'day. It  will not succeed at the expense of the  millions   of   people   and   particularly  merchants and bankers located in the  towns and  smaller cities.    They are  vitally interested- and should become  a     part and parcel  of a great joint  movement that will increase the productive ability of our farmers.    You  cannot   hope* to   accomplish   this   increase  by in any way crippling that  great body of our people who are the  nearest to, and the only ones to whom  the farmers'as a class go to, and depend upon for assistance and co-operation in times of extremity. It is the  problem of today, that of feeding this '  nation, which is already^a consuming  rather than a producing one. To this  cause the merchants arid business men  of the towns pledge their earnest support.    There are more than a million  of them.   They aslc in return reciprocity on the part of our neighbors and  farmers in order that peace, happiness  and   prosperity may be the portion ot  all alike-  Our fourth great aim should be, in  order to preserve ourselves, our communities and those about us, to become community builders. Community  builders to the extent of blotting out  the corporate limits, extending the influence of the commercial club and the  business organizations to cover the  country surrounding. It has been my  privilege the most of my life to live in  a community which to a large extent  has accomplished this thing.   We have  let me ask. for example, is there for j found out by co-operation on the part  tho local dry goods store to carry in  stock goods fine enough for the banker's, the lumberman's, and the hardware merchant's family? None whatever. This, being often the case, how  can the banker expect the merchant,  whose note he holds, to meet his obligations if there is taken away from  him the only means whereby he may  he able to meet them���������his "profits on  goods sold to his neighbors.  The whole question Is summed up in  and stated in the following from on ;  who was at one time the editor of a  of the bankers' and the business men  ! that the farmi.ig community about us  j was in hearty sympathy with every er-  | fort to meet conditions in and out of  i town,  and   where  I  have  lived,  and  ; what  we  as  merchants  and  bankers  i have done is being repeated through-  !��������� out   the   country.     .Many   towns   have  I become awakened    to    the situation;  i thev aro inviting co-operation;    they  j are'socking light;   they are spending  money; they are. doing everything that  is possible in their power to promote  Ihe feeling of friendship, and co-opera-  country newspaper in this state, when   tion with all classes  Is A Marked Success  with  A man out west, who married a  widow, has invented a device to cure  her of eternally praising her former  husband.
