Saturday morning.  ' The   late   baronet   and former premier of Canada v was   probably   the  '   most   prominent     and  -influential  Conservative leader ever   identified  with the pmlic.l-fe nf'Cmaia   with  th-3 exception of his illustrious   pre  deeessor.   the   late' Sir John   Mac  donald.    He was 94 years of age  Telegrams of sympathy   were   re  ceived Saturday and Sunday by Sir  Charles   Hibbert  Tupper, fn   Van  couver,    from  several   British   and  Canadian   statesmen,  among   them  the Duke of '.Connaught,   governor  .general; Sir Robert Borden, Hon. T.  Chase Casgruiu,  postmaster.-general,  -  and Sir Richard McBride.  .A cablegram   from,  the "colo rial office  in  -which   the "sympathy    of   Arthur  Bonar Law.secretary for the colonies,  was  expressed: was also   forwarded  from the Duke of Connaught to   Sir  . Charles Hibbert Tupper.  "I had the privilege of seeing your  father in August la-it, and found   hi-,  mind as clear and his interest in all  fiat concerns the empire as active as  ever.    The greatest 1 ving Canadian  passed away in him    My wife and I  send deepest  sympathy,"   was   the  feeling     communication   sent     by  Premier Borden.    Sir  Richard   McBride,    in    expressing sympathy in  behalf of himself and his colleagues,  stated that the people of British Co  lumbia and the west owed  a. Jeep  debt   of  gratitude   t<T Sir Charles,  whom he characterized  as   a   great  friend.of this province.  The late Sir Charles was well  . known in many secti >ns of British  Columbia. About fifteen jears ago  he made a tour of the Boundary and  Kootenay districts, and The Sun  . man bad the pleasure of hearing  him speak in Nelson. During 1912  he was the guest ofhis second son,  Sir_ Charles Hibbert Tupper, in  Vancouver. '  Sir   Charles   was  a friend of the  west and was largely-instrumental in  securing the establishment of   what"  is now the city   of   Vancouver, and  was one of the largest  promoters of  tlie   first  transcontinental   ryilway,  Taking up the practice.pf  medicine  as a village doctor in   Nova Scotia,  Sir Charles soon   became  identified  with the political life of that  province, and became premier  of   Nova  Scotia, premier of Canada and high  in the office of Dr. Harding, then   a  well known medical    practicioner of  Windsor, NS.    In    1843, after   tak  ing his degree as doctor of medicine  at Edinburgh university,he returned  toCanadaand took up the   practice  of   his   profession    in   Cumberland  county, Nova'Scotia, where   he"   ex-  peiienced   the   hardships attendant  upon   pioneer   life   in-those stirring  days.    Dr7 Tupper became   premier  of Nova Scotia in 1864 andwas sent  to London from this country in 1867  to assist   in   arranging  for" the final  passage of the British North America  bill, which was enacted as law  that  year.    On   one' occasion   when Sir  Charles was asked.what would have  happened had the plan for the consolidation of -all British colonies  in  North America failed through   British   Columbia' staying   out   of the  union, the venerable statesman said  that the-isolation of this   possession  would have had   the . result   of   it  eventually    being   absorbed - by the  United Stales,    which    would   have  been   most   disastrous to the future  of British possessions in America, in  Sir, Charles'  opinion, who  regarded  this province   with   its fine seaports  and   its   immense mineral, agricultural and 'fisheries wealth   as   indis  pensable'to the proper development  and rounding out of the greatest  of  Great Britain's * colonies.  Sir Charles' first visit to British  Columbia was in 1881, when be  made the'journey across the continent to San Francisco and from' that  city by boat to Victoria:. .'Sp'ea'king  oFthafvisit he-said, in part":  "We proceeded from   Victoria   to  Nanaimo, then visited Captain Ray-  mur's sawmill on the  waterfront  of  .the then unborn city of   Vancouver.  There-  was  only one house in Van-  coiver.    It   was   occupied   by   the  manager of the mill.    .   .   ,   I rode  on horseback   from   Raymur's   mill  t) New Westminster.  It was a track  through the woods."  When federal minister of railways  Sir Charles awarded to Andrew On-  derdon, an American., contracts for  building the C P.R. line from Yale  to Savona for $8,000,000, and later  let the contract from Yale to Port  Moody.  Sir Charles was predeceased in  1912'by Lady Tapper. His baronet  cy falls to Charles Stewart Tupper,  Winnipeg, son of the late James  Stewart Tupper, eldest son of the  deceased     statesman.

He had    been  in the trenches for three months before he was wounded.    He received  bis wounds on May 20th, when   the  Canadians took part in the- glorious  charge at Festuberet. ,  Mr. Brewer   says   that  when the  word of command was given he was  up and out of  the  trench with   the  rest of the fellows.    "We were going  like; the   dickens   for  the enemy's  trench," he scid, "when suddenly a  tremendous     explosion      occurred  right,beside me, and my  next  idea  of what was happening  was   when  a few days later   the   doctor  said,  'Here, sit up and take this.' "    He  was wounded in four places���������in the  cheek, the head, the   neck,   and   tbe  thigh.    The gashes   are  still   quite  distinguishable. He   had previously"  been subjected to asphyxiating   gas.  After his recovery he was   givin   an  honorable discharge,  owing  to   his  'wounds, and   he proceeded   to   bis  home   in   this   city.

"There is absolutely no comparison  between the Boer war and   this," declared Sergt. H. J.

A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS PER PLUG  An- Imperial  Visit of Sir Robert Borden to England  Marks Important Phase in History  of Our, Country   .  Fifty years  ago  the  proposals   for  a  con federation  had  just   been  submitted to tlxe people of British North  America,  and  in  .1806  the statesmen  of the colonies assembled in London  .to  settle   with   the  imperial  government upon    the  terms  of the agreement which was to establish the Dominion,   of    Canada.    They    accomplished their mission.   The   scattered  and  disunited    colonies    were    with;  drawn  together    and   the  new  community  was   endowed  with  the  largest powers  of self government.    By  effecting    this    result    the    Loudon  meeting in 18(16 completed one stage  in    the  development    of the  British  empire.    A  household  had  been  set  up within   the  empire,  managing  its  own.  affairs.     When    Australia    and  South  Africa   were  prepared  in   like  manner to direct their own concerns  they  followed   the   precedent   set   in  1866, and secured  from  the imperial  . government  their   free   constitutions.  Yet, the establishment of these Do-  '  minions,  while  certainly a milestone  in  the  progress   of  the  empire,  left  a long road still to travel.   The new  communities took charge of their local  affairs,  but   they had  as  yet  no  voice   in   conducting    the    business  common to the whole empire.    Such  common  concerns    wore  left  to  the  government  at   Westminster-    It  administered  the    great    dependencies,  ir.   conducted   the   foreign    policy  of  the   empire,   it   decided   finally  upo~h  peace  or  war,   it    retained    a  final  authority over all parts  of the British  commonwealth.    The    autonomy  of the Dominions  was  thus restricted within  certain boundaries;  and a  citizen of Canada enjoyed a less ample' prerogative than-a citizen of the  United    Kingdom,    since  the   latter  alone      elected    the    representatives  who  determined   the  ultimate  issues  for  the   whole   empire.     This   difference  could  not he  permanent.    The  Dominions once in control over their  own    business    moved inevitably towards    a larger  participation in the  business    common    to    the    empire.  ��������� Iience the  50 years since confederation have witnessed a series of meetings  in London    no    less' significant  than    that    of 1866.    Colonial statesmen  have  visited  the  Metropolis  of  the  empire  to  take part in  imperial  councils   and   gradually  to  assume  a  share    in-   imperial    responsibilities.  TImj   fathers   oil   confederation    have  been  followed   by    the  premiers    of  Canada, Sir John Thompson,   Sir Wilfrid Laurier and now Sir Robert Borden. ���������  ��������� Meanwhile the imperial defence  committee was taking shape in order  to co-ordinate the defensive arrangements of the empire and upon it colonial ministers were allotted their place.  It was only an advisory body to the  British cabinet yet its membership  was so representative and important  as to give its decisions great weight-  It proved really an antechamber to  the cabinet; those who gained admittance to it were close to the innermost councils of the empire. Finally,  the great war threw all the doors  open. It showed as no logic would  have done, how decisions taken at  Westminster affected tlie lives and  property of British citizens everywhere. It proved the.Quality of those  citizens beyond the seas who were not  vet full partners in the commonwealth. It showed that their strength  and goodwill were necessary to the  safety of the common flag.  A journey by Sir Robert Borden to  England at this time was natural and  proper.   He wished to inspect Canadian troops whether in training camps  or at the front, to cheer -his .wounded,  countrymen,  to  discuss  with  the  imperial authorities the measures which  all parts of the empire should adopt in  discharge of the  common  obligation.  His presence in London wag a**sign to  to   our  friends   and   our   enemies   of  the   unanimity  of   the  empire.    Still  the   most  significant   episode   in   his  visit  was the invitation  to attend   a  meeting   of   the   cabinet.     All     the  other  functions    he  could /'have   discharged  and  yet  have  made  no  vance  beyond  his     predecessors  .shaping  the   institutions   of  the  pirc    Other episodes during his  immaterial. What matters is,.thal a  representative of the Dominions shared in the final council of the empire.  His right-to be present will-never be  urged. There will be no need of urging it, since no one will call it in question. His presence on one great occasion is a sufficient precedent. We*  proceed in our British way from fact  .to fact,*rather than from one'claim to  another. The fact is unassailable. All  the counsels of the empire wore disclosed fo a representative of a Dominion in person.  It has accustomed British people  everywhere to the idea that the deliberations of the imperial government  which affect all the empire can and  must be shared with representatives  of the empire overseas. The idea will  take shape much more quickly than  we should have thought possible a few  months ago, in a cabinet truly imperial, not restricted to citzens of- the  United Kingdom, but including representatives from all tho Dominions-  "Tho invitation to Sir Robert Borden lias -prepared the Avay for  formation of such a body which  deal wtih matters common to-  whole British commonwealth,  -work of the, fathers of confederation  will then be complete: They gave Canada control over her local affairs, but  those concerns which affected Canada  together with the rest of the empire  were still left in the care of the imperial government. Canada w'll now  have a voice in determining the policies-which in any Avay affect her and  will at the same time participate in  the -government of the empire as a  whole. The meeting of 1866 led inevitably to the meeting*-of 1915. The imperial convention such.as must follow  the war will crown the efforts of all  the Canadian statesmen who since the  confederation of Canada have joined  in' securing for their country her  true' place in the British .commonwealth.  Protecting the People  j  No Refund on War Tax  the  will  the  The  The Flight of a Bullet  A  ad-  in  cm-  stay  were certainly more dramatic, the  mooting with the rulers of the allies, the visit to the Canadian battery  in France, the great review or our  ���������f-oldiers at Shorncliffe. Yet no incident compared in importance with the  gathering of a few civilians, unheralded, unattended, surrounded by no  pomp or ceremony, to discuss around  a table in Whitehall the common business of all the millions of their fellow-  citizens. 'No colonial had over before  entered this council chamber. The final authority which the cabinet exercised had not been shared with any  citizen of tlie empire from beyond the  seas. There now remained no council  of the empire from which a representative of the Dominions should be kept  alooT.  It is true that the prime minister  of Canada attended the meeting of  the cabinet by invitation, through the  courtesy of the British government.  He was' enjoying a privilege, not exercising a right-    The  distinction  is  W. N. U. 1071  Technical  Description of the Vagaries of a Speeding Bullet  By  the  time  a  small    bore  bullet  reaches the muzzle of a gun-it is moving forward at the rate of over 2,000  feet   per   second,   and   making   2,400  revolutions in the same time, the velocity giving it an energy of about 1,-  700, the rotation "of about 17 feet pound,  together forming an-enormous  quantity^ to concentrate in a small object  weighing  but  a  couple*   of  hundred  grains-   The rotational energy .enables  the ballet to maintain its stability, and  thus   indirectly    contributes     to   its  ranging powei* by compelling it to travel end on, and constantly offer a minimum resistance to the air. Unfortunately, the Avhole of the kinetic energy  of the gases is riot transferred ,t-o the  bullet,  for  at the  instant  the  latter  leaves the muzzle there is a tremendous rush of gases past it. This "muzzle blast" is an annoying thorn in the_  side  of the  ballistfcian,  since,  apart"  from the waste.of energy, there is _a  tendency.for those gases, with a higher muzzle  velocity  than,that of the  bullet, to shove the base of the latter  out of line,  and  so  cause the  bullet  to topple over. Even so, this could not  occur were it not for the fact that it is  impossible to make  the muzzle of a  rifle and the base of a bullet so accurate that the latter leaves the former  simultaneously at all points, and it is  the inevitable slight symmetrical relationship between    these    parts    that  causes   the' initial  tilting   which  the  muzzle blast accentuates.    Elongated  bullets fired from a, smooth bore are  found to be travelling side on at a distance of but two feet, in consequence  of this muzzle blast: hence the necessity in  these long bullets  of a very  rapid  spin.    However,    despite    this  rapid spin, the bullet still Avobbles a  little at the beginning of its flight, a  fact which throws light on the aggravated   traumatic   effects  occasionally  seen after close range f'rrmg.   A spinning top is unsteady at the commencement    of.spin, it. then '-falls asleep,"  and, so far as translation lis concerned,  becomes   motionless������,firi'ally, towards  the  end  it staggers^abflirt  and   rolls  over.    Now, a bullet is' an aerial top.  spinning several thousanct'times a minute on a layer of condensed air;  like  the toy counterpart, it wobbles at first,  then becomes rigid, and finally, at the  end   of  long  nights,   when   its  rotary  speed has considerably fallen, it again  becomes unsteady.���������Engineering.  Prohibition  Does Not Appear to tie a  New Theory, According to History  /'in 1910 Governor Stubbs of Kansas-  'delivered an addrtss in Chicago in  Avhich he spoke in part as,, follows:  "Prohibitio i in Kansas is not the result of atrnttepheric conditions, Reason Avas at the bottom of it all. It  was not brought about by fanatics, but  by sane, sober, patriotic folks avIio  had longer leads and more common  sense than the average American people   had  at  that  time.  "It Avas not a new theory. Tt Avas  as old as the abuse of liquor. Eleven  hundred years before Christ an Emperor of China decreed that all the  grape vines be pulled up by the roots  artel burned to ashes. China has been  a sober nation ever since. Centuries  before Chvist, -.ycurgus,- the great  law giver of his people, did precisely  the same thing in Greece. -The Carthaginians prohibited drinking in the  army 300 years before the Christian  era. Draco, in his laAvs, made drunkenness a capital- offense. All through  history you will- find it.^and whoreyer  it Avas observed the nations became  greater and more virtuous. '  "Prohibition is the doctrine-of self-  defence, Kansas is simply protecting  its people from the arch* enemy of  huriian 'happiness. Kansas '.jomes are  protected from cu infinitely worse  enemy to society than the burglar.  Prohibition has simply muzzled a  brute that is !ten thousand times more  vicious than a mad dog. It has merely cut out a useless expense that Avas  more burdensome on the people than  all of the state and county taxes combined." When the people of Canada  Avake "up to the terrible truth of that  last sentence the -liquor traffic Avill be  doomed.���������H. Arnott, M.B., M.C.P.S.  /       Not   the   German   Way  'The general staff of the Russian  navy issues-the folloAving statement:  A German official communique accuses our sailors in the Black Sea  of barbarous acts against Turkish  ships, alleging that the Russians sink  vessels with their crews without first  examining them.  Although the accusations are made  by a government which, violates not  only international laAvs hut the customary principles of humanity, the'  general staff feels bound to refute  these accusations, declaring that the  German communique-is a lie.  Our sailors destroy Turkish ships  because they transport Avar material,  coal and petrol. On every occasion  they adopt all measures to" save the  crews, and the ships are only shelled  if they refuse to stop after demand,  and in these cases the crews are  always captured first:  In several cases the sailor* prefer  to regain the shore by sA\-imming in  order to avoid ��������� capture, ���������and they are  never fired at, and all those who  surrender are taken on ���������boanf\the  warships and sent to Sebastopol.  This rule is followed even Avhen  the Turkish ships, pretending that  they Avish to surrender, open fire on  our submarines. Special lists are  made of the prisoners captured, and  they prove that not a single man of  the captured 'crews has been left to  his fate. All the prisoners every  time express their satisfaction for  the humane treatment accorded  them. -������������������*  Purchasers  of  Railway or  Steamship  Tickets Cannot'Have War Tax  \ Refunded \  A matter of importance to the public and the railways has been settled  by the government-" A nice point has  been raised as to the possibility of  refund of the Avar tax in. case a per-  Tso.n should-change his or her mind in  regard to the contemplated trip by  train or boat. If the'railways insisted ' upon the tax in such cases of  changed intention, it wa3 altogether  likely that the public would set them  dOAvn as extortioners.  Accordingly the railways submitted  the  questions to    the    government���������  Avhat should be done in case unused  tickets presented for refund to agent  before the train starts;   to  agent  or  general office after train departs; the  same or some folloAving day;   in  the  case of passenger tickets; in the case  of sleeping car tickets; in the case of  parlor   car  tickets;     iri   the 'case   of  steamship tickets-   The answer Avhich  the railways received-was. as follows:  There can be no refund of the lax  under   any circumstances.    Once the  ticket is sold    and the tax collected,  it is as though it were in the Domin-  inion coffers and nothing but an act  of parliament can get it out again. It  Avas explained by the Dominion authorities  that in  order  to"prevent the  confusion that Avould arise   in applying-   literally    the    millions    of tax  stamps that would' have been required on railway "tickets and the consequent difficulties  which would    have  ensued OAving to delay in affixing and"  cancellation of  stamps,  the    present  method has been adopted, and, that as  none  of  the  public  could  have  reasonably expected a refund on a stamp  that had  been  affixed  and  cancell(jd,.  if ticket were refunded upon, so also  no refund may he expected wherever  a tax    had been  collected,    and  the  ticket unusued and    refunded,   upon.  In other words, the    act of purchase  of the ticket in accordance Avith the  Tax Act is a completed,   transaction  so far as the collection of the tax is  concerned and under no circumstances  as  the  laAv hoav  stands 'could  it  be  refunded.    To make a refund of the  tax possible a special act .would have  to be passed by parliament.

Thus, when Germany could buy ordnance and take it home, it was all  right for the United States to sell it  to her. It is quite in keeping with  German logic to set up now that it is  wrong to do the same thing for the  allies" All the world knows that if  she could carry them away, Germany  would today be a heavy buyer of war  munitions in the United States.

Canadian trade commissioners In  England report a big demand for Canadian apples, because it is generally  believed that large quantities wijl  probably find their way to the troops  in the theatres" of war.. As a result  they state that a severe stiffening of  the retail -.ml-wholesale "prices is cer-  ain. Owing, liowever.eto shipping difficulties and the shortage of vessels,  the prospects of there being large Canadian imports are not bright.

Movement* Launched That  a Saving of Money ito  of the West *'  In the little town of Dugald, "Man.,'  some short ivliile ago, a movement  -was, launched in a very quiet-and unostentatious Avay that will probably  spread ov^v the entire length and  breadth of Western Canada, revolutionizing hundreds and thousands of  western homes. No publicity was  courted at the time, and the proceeding in question although of the' very  highest importance nearly- escaped the  attention of the press altogether.  To  give   a   brief narrative   ' Qt*  thi  event,  and   to  describe  it just as it  happened, Ave might say that on a certain Saturday afternoon'rigs'and automobiles -were  converging  on  Dugald  just as if it wae- the first-'day of tha  country - fair.    By four o'clock in the  commodious wilh    hall    that    stands  face to face wtih the village church,  about sixty or sev-enty ladies,  members  of the Economic-Society'  had  gathered.    A**little after four o'clock  Mrs. McBeath, the well 'known Avoma*-*.  farmer of Headingly, who'is always to'  the front in any movement calculated  -  to improve the domestic conditions of  this  country,  Avas  introduced  to  the  meeting,  and  explained   that ��������� at' the '  request* of   the  Agricultural   College  sha was, in attendance to-giAre some  particulars   of  new    and ���������- up-to-date  methods "of  home, canning, .such   as  Avere now  being so' extensively used  throughout  the  United  States.    Mrs-  McBeath then explained hoAv-about 50  per cent, of the vegetable products of  Western Canada were thrown on the-  waste  heap   every  year,  for." lack  of  some reliable-method of preserving it.  She "proceeded to demonstrate how i':  was now possible for every farmer's  A\*ife in fact every householder in the  country   to   can   inexpensively   every  kind of vegetable that can be grown.  She read a number of time tabled for-  example sboAving 'how in an hour cr  tA\*o   it Avas a," simple task to can hundreds of pounds' worth of sAveet corn, .  beans, peas, tomatoes, beets, carrots,  in fact every variety of vegetable and  put them away for future use, as well -  as all kinds of fruits.   Some glass jars  containing corn and peas, etc., 'pickled  last .fall Avere  passed around, and it  was observed tha-; they were as sAveet  and fresh in color and taste" as at the  hour Avhen they were gathered from  the stalk. w  Considerable enthusiasm Avas aroused among the members of the Economic Society, ,and in view of the fact  that the entire canning outfits, particulars of which: may be had from  Prof. Lee of the Manitoba Agricultural  College, cost only a feAv dollars, many  present signified their intention of in- .  stalling one of these time saving and .  hjoney saving apparatus, and of thus  economizing the products of their own  gardens, and cutting dOAvn living expenses.  Mr. Newton delivered a very pointed and interesting address, in Avhich-  he pointed out that if such outfits  were- used throughout the Avest, the  actual productive powers of the country Avould be increased 50 per cent,  and fruit and vegetables now throAvn  aAvay and left to rot,would instead-  be preserved and would., represent a  saving of hundreds 'of'"thousands of  dollars. Mr. NeAvton amused the meeting by telling hoAv. he bought a large  number of "turkeys in the \vintervand  just aa'Iien the frost Avas breaking up  in the spring "he found he'i-had fifty  birds left. Pie could not eat fifty  birds, he explained, in a Aveek or ten  days, so he decided to can them. This  he did, and Mr. Newton is still eating  turkey as fresh and delicious as  though it had been killed anepdressed  expressly for- his Christmas dinner,  ���������us fact is interesting because if  "shows that practically anything can  be canned by the outfit's advocated by  the Agricultural College.  A market gardener from St. Xor-  bert also addressed the meeting arid  explained that he had sbwed^vcr two  acres of beans expressly for canning.  He stated that the usefulness of such  an outfit to the market gardener was  incalculable, because it enabled him  to preserve what lie would otherwise  have to throw away or sell at urprofitable prices.

"The incendiary fire bombs, -which  contain some composition producing  sufficient heat to start a (lame iii anything that will burn.are now familiar.  The Germans liave invented a method  of using something similar in the'form  of,  or combined  with,  shrapnel.

The Boy as a Partner  Encourage   the. Boy  to   Stay   on   the  Farm by Giving Him an Interest  in the Business  ���������   It doesn't seem right-that the boys  should  so often feel that  they must  leave home for profitable" and attractive employment.   In most other lines  of business it is the" hope of the business man to see his sons follow in the  same business   and take it over when  he leaves it.   Plans are made to that  end, and  the bey is trained up to a  thorough   understanding of  the   business.     Of    course  it  doesn't  always  work out as planned, but every effort  is made by the parent in most cases.  On  too    many    farms  every  energy  seems to be  directed toward  driving  the,boy away from the farm as soon  as he is old enough to get away. Very  often his father    wants him to stay,  urges and sometimes commands him  to stay.    But it-is too late.    The boy  has never been made to feel that he  is a partner in the buskiess of that  farm-:   Nothing is  ever    talked over  with him;  nothing is ever explained.  And it isn't any wonder he proceeds  to hike.   There are exceptions to this  unfortunate method.   Letters    written  on neatly    printed'-farm - stationery  sometimes come, and on it the managers of the farm are gravely announced as "A; B.  C. & Son."    Closer acquaintance often reveals the fact that  the "Son" may be ten, fifteen, or twenty years old.���������Oklahoma Farmer.  Freedom for the Po'les  In addressing the reichstag, the  German chancellor, \Von Bethmann-  Hollweg, referred to' the recent victories of the kaiser's armies in Russian Poland. In part he said: "The  present occupation of the' Polish east  frontier is the beginning of an evolution which will lead the country, freed  from the Russian yoke, towards. a  brighter future, in wliicn she will be  able to develop and cultivate her national character. Further German and  Austrian.victories will free the Balkan  nations from oppression, and make  possible the principle of 'the Balkans  for the Balkan nations.'" Were Germany to be the final victor in this  world-conflict she would "emancipate  the Poles and the Balkan peoples just  as she has lifted the peoples of Alsace-Lorraine and Belgium to constitu-'  tional freedom.

Winter Dairying Pays  Milk Production is Greatest When  Cows Freshen ' in Fall  There are so many advantages in  having dairy cows come fresh in  the fall, while the disadvantages are  but very few, if any, that one wonders why so little progress is being  made in that direction. Those who  have silos, and no one can afford to  dairy without a silo in these days of  high priced land, should be especially  anxious to have at least two-thirds of  their cows calve in the fall of the  year. . ,  September is a good month to have  the cows freshen. If grass is short at  that time it can be supplemented  with silage and the necessary grain,  and thus the. flow of milk brought  up lo the largest amount possible.  Later, wJth an abundance of succulent feed at hand, the milk flow can  easily be maintained throughout tbe  winter months. Then, by the time  grass comes and the cows have given  milk for seven or eight months and  the flow tends to diminish, it will be  revived when the cows' are turned  on good pasture, while in July and  August when the flies are bad and  conditions are against a ^liberal flow  of milk, the cows are either dry or  very..-soon will be.  In other words, the cow thar  calves in the fall has a much better  opportunity to produce a .large  amount of milk and butterfat in a  season than the one that freshens in  tire spring. This is-readily appreciated upon a-' little reflection. Suppose a cow freshens in May when  pastures are good. She gives "a large  flow of milk during May and June,  first because feed is abundant, and  second because she has recently  freshened. But no sooner has she  started than the hot months of ���������'July  and August with flies and- perhaps  dried up pastures are upon her and  the milk - flow immediately drops.  When cooler weather .returns and  grass revives there will be a slight  increase in the yield of milk, but a  full flow normal for that period cannot be obtained till the cow has  calved again. 'This means that a >  herd of low producing cows must be  carried through the * winter months,  with profits .greatly reduced, .but the  labor, remaining practically the same.  It does not take quite so long to  milk a cow giving a small amount  of milk as one. producing a large  flow, but it...requires just as much  labor to feed and care for a low  producer as for the highest producer  in the world, and the task of doing  the other chores is the same for all  kinds of cows.  It is safe to say that a 'given cow  will-produce   -twenty'..per cent, more  milk and  butterfat  when  she calves  in  the  fall    than    when  she  comes  fresh in the spring.    This increase in  production should in itself be enough  to  cause   anj-  dairynian  to  at  least  have the'majority of his cows'freshen  in  the fall,  but there are  more  factors  favoring  the  practice.    One  of  .these is the highej-������price which -dairy  products  command    in    winter  than  in  summer.    Another is the "cheaper  labor.   Labor   is   cheapest /luring the  period  when. milk  and   butter  bring  the   highest   prices    on   the market.  Then, too,  the    farmer   himself  can  devote more    time    to   the cows in  winter when    farm    work is reduced  to  a  minimum  and   his  time  is   not  so valuable-   The   first three months  after  spring  opens    are  the  busiest  in-   the   whole   year   for the farmer,  just when cows    that  calve    in  the  spring need the most attention.'   The  inevitable result is more oi" less neglect,  and  neglect  early in  the  lactation p.eriod is mighty expensive business.  When it comes to raising skim  milk calves, those born in the fall  soon learn to eat grain and therefore-grow faster than those that are  dropped just as grass comes and do I  not lea'-n to eat grain before extreme j  heat/and millions of flies begin to  make life miserable i'or them. Then,  too, fall calves, if intended for the  dairy, can be bred to drop their first  calves in the fall as two year olds.���������  Montreal Family Herald.

Koester  of Ger-  Theory and Practice  An engineer named Frank  has written a book, "Secrets  man Progress," which the publisher  advertises as contrasting the American commonwealth with German democracy. It seems that Germany has  an infinitely better government, better  journalism and art an dfinance, better  schools and industrial methods, better  methods of housing and.city planning,  a superior navy, and that tlie German  army is "the greatest organization  which has ever been perfected by the  brain of man."..

Author    Declares    Monotonous   Lives  Abound   in- Nineteenth   Ward,���������  Chicago  The writer of early American life'ia  the middle west' and far west emphasizes the hardships suffered by the  women pioneers who accompanied  their husbands on the plunge into  the "wilderness," and points to the  wearying monotony of life' led by women on-the frontiers.  The student of agricultural society  calls attention to the dreary life of  women whose farmer husbands are  unable to give them relief from the'  monotony, of work on the farm.  And the traveller'across the deserta  which lie just east of the Pacific coast  pities the women who must pass their  lives in the monotony of,sand rnd sun  and does not marvel when lie is told  that many become "eccentric" and���������  some actually insane under the terrific strain. - .     '  But according to Lucille M. Win-  dette, who has just completed a series  of investigations into the life of thi  working class, there are women living  within: the boundaries of the seconu  largest city iu the country whose lives  are just as dreary, just as monotonous,  just as maddening as the lives of the  pioneer women, the women of the  farm, and the women of the desert.  Miss Windette's investigations were  confined   chiefly   tu   the     Nineteenth  ward where conditions were found typical of those in many other parts of  Chicago.    In her report, which is-entitled  "JL-ife  and   Work  Among    Our  Neighbors," she reviews in detail tiro  various phases of life among the working people-  Here are some of her conclusions:  "No thoughtful person can fail to be  struck by* the monotony which characterizes   the   life   of   most   married  women in  the  working class. This is  less marked in the more typical slum  districts, where the life is lived more  in common.   But the women are little  better than shut-ins, who live in these  streets and spend the whole day- indoors, when their    husbands    are t-t  work.  "The young mother who has all the  care of a growing family of children.-  has little opportunity for visiting  about.

This theory  has never  been scientifically   tested,   however,  because  a   person in this conclition,  with nothing left of   him  but smafl  fragments  of the  olfactory   organs,  might easily develop these to such a  high   state   of   efficiency   that    he  would become a menace  to   society  by being capable of scenting scandal  wherever it existed.

In the southeast corner of the state  there are whole fields in which there  are two heads to the stallc.  Farmers who came to North Dakota  from Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa are  unable to account for the growth, except that it is a freak of nature resulting from exceptionally .fine growing weather following a rainy period.  ' They say that they never heard of'  such a growth in the states in which  they formerly lived. Pioneer North  Da'kotans say the thing is new to  them; too-  The double heads, in practically all  cases, are full size and the kernels  are, well tilled. In some instances the  double growth will mean almost  double the ordinary crop, which  would greatly increase the 116,'-'.00,-  00.0 bushel government wheat estimate  for the state, a yield that sets a new  record.

The struggle may,  aud will, be marked by many great  individual conflicts, but the chief factor will be the endurance of the belligerents: the nation, or combination of  nations, with the superior staying  power will emerge victorious.   -  It is up to us all to aid in the result  by every possible conservation of our  resources. The Germans have eliminated waste, aud are thereby that  much better prepared to continue the  struggle; without this genius for organizing the Austro-German forces  would today be in a desperate position in all likelihood.   .  There are 'countless ways wherein  we might profitably emulate the enemy. The matter, cf alcoholic consumption is one of these, it is undeniable that -money spent, for liquor  ordinarily brings no return of usefulness to the consumer or purchaser,  So far as concerns the consumer.the  money is completely wasted, its expenditure resulting merely in the gratification of an appetite. The government gets a certain tax from the manufacture and sale of liquor, and this is  often advanced as an economic argument, but the remainder of the'cost  is purely a drain on the resources of  the individual, and thus also the nation, without any useful return to  either.  Would not the present be an auspicious time to begin a movement to  impress upon all the advantages from  a personal and'"a patriotic standpoint  of abstaining from liquor? The sheer  waste of moaey in Canada in the purchase and consumption of liquor, to  say nothing of its other undeniable effects, at a time when every good  citizen should be straining every  nerve to conserve the resources of the  country is lamentable.

Here are a  few of his-chief points:  -v We  are  short  'of  coal  in  a  great  crisis.  We are suffering from the patriot-  Ism of the miner. A quarter of a million of them have gone into the fighting line:  Coal is everything for us. Our 350,-  000 casualties were inflicted by German coal.  Parlies have ��������� disappeared for the  time being. There are two new parties  now���������optimists- and pessimists���������Uie  Blue Sky School and the Grey Sky  School.  i j. ��������� In my opinion the sky is mottled.  \* The events in the east mean that a  larger share than ever of the burden-  of the struggle will be cast upon the  shoulders of England.  - Victory means the-fate of freedom  for ages to come. .-Freedom implies  the right to Uiirk, for others to defend,   fs that fair?  After praising the miner as"a worker, a politician, a singer, a "footballer,  a soldier, the minister of munitions  '��������� went on to say  We' are short of .coal to run the  country in a great crisis. The demand 'for coal is greater than ever.  The supply of labor is less than ever.  In  times pi peace    coal'  is    the  most important element in the industrial- life  of the  country. - The  blood  ���������which  courses  through  the  veins  of  industry in this  country is made by  . distilled coal.    In peace and    in war  King Coal is the paramount lord of  industry.    It enters into every article  < of consumption and of utility.  It. is our real international coinage. We buy goods abroad, food.and  raw material. .We pay not in gold,  wo pay in coal. Wo pay in diamonds,  except that they are black, and not  in gold.  Coal brings meat and -bread to us  -from the Argentine. It" pays across  .., tlii counter there for it- out of its  own pocket. We cannot do without  coal. In war it is life -for us and  death for our foes. It not merely  fetches and carries for-us; it (makes  the material and the machinery which  it transports.  It   bends,  it   molds,     it   fills 'the  weapons of Avar.    Steam.means coal.  Rifles    mean    coal.    Machine,   guns  ���������������������������moan coal.   Cannon mean coal.

The* very explosive inside  them  is  coal,  arid  then  coal carries  them on right into the battlefield to  help our men- ������������������'"���������  Coal is  everything for us, and we  want more of it to win victory. Coal  is the most terrible of enemies, and  it is the most potent of friends. You  read that terrible casualty list given  ���������   out by the .prime .minister the other  day.

You  will  read  in  the  papers  about    the  advance of the German legions,    and  '.���������-'���������"    about  "their    gigantic"  armies,    and  ,       there  you . will see  scores  of    great  V .  British      ships '   tranquilly    gliding  through  the   waters   without  any "in-1  terference.   . '  ' Why? Coal propels them, and  coal protects them. For if you will  only look for a ..short time you will  see a British battleships tearing  along. You may not see the coal  smoke, because the coal comes .from  South Wales. But you know it is  there, for you see the vessel tearing  along, and you know there is coal  in its bunkers, and you know, if the  need arises,-, those mighty cannon on  its decks 'will be filled with distilled coal that will scatter destruction to.the foes of our country.

There used to be a naval school  and a military school, a naval school  which depended entirely upon the  sea and upon the navy "to protect us  agair.sf"invasion, and it was called  the. Blue Water School.- The new  parties are the Blue Sky School and'  Let me tell, you what I,think nboub  the* sky. The sky is mottled. There  are some people wno can see nothing but tlie black menace iu the sky,  and they imagine it- shows a lack of  foresight to look -at the wide  stretches of blue still smiling in the  heavens.  1here are some, on the other hand,  who fix their gaze rigidly on tbe  clear azure* above the seas. Tbey  cleem it disloyal to take any note  of the dark thunder clouds that are  rolling lip iu the east, and the grey  sky which is hanging so heavily over-  the devoted plains of Flanders and  of France.  But sky staring is not enough for  us. We have to put forth, all our  strength. The- events in the east,  whatever thoy mean, - portend that;  they mean'that a 'larger share than  ever of the burden ot" this struggle  [will.be cast upon- -the shoulders of  Britain. .

Victory has its jjrice. -It is'no use  calling-attention to the cost we have  incurred���������hundreds of thousands of  casualties and millions of men gathered together to go into the battlefield; thousands of millions of expenditure ��������� which we are . incurring.  Tho one question is, whether it is  enough. It is no use trying to  bridge a, 12 foot stream with an 11 foot  plank.  We have but one question to ask  ourselves���������we of all marks, of" all  J grades, ami of all trades���������are we  doing enough to secure victory, because victory means life for our  country?    (Hear, hear).  It nie'ans the fate of freedom for  ages to come.. There is no price  which is too great for us to pay  that is within our power. There is  too much disposition to, cling ^on to  the amenities of peace. Business as  usual, enjoyment as usual, fashions,  lockouts, strikes, ca-cauny, spree.-*,  all as usual. Wages must -..go up,  profits must also improve, but prices  must at^all costs be kept down.  Freedom after all implies the right  to shirk. Freedom implies the right  for you to enjoy and for others to  defend you. Is that freedom?. War  i: like a fever, a deadly fever, and  the rules which -are applicable in  health are utterly unsuited ,to a fever.  Restraints 'which"would be irksome,  stupid and unnecessary when a-man  is healthy, are essential to save his  life in a fever.*  What is the use of the patient say-  ing, "I must have meat as usual,  drink as usual, in fact, more than  usual, because I am thirstier than  usual. I have a high temperature,  so I am more parched than, usual:  there is a greater strain on my  strength, so I really ought to have  more than usual. If I want to go out  why should I be confined to that  little bed?    Freedom    above   all."  "But you die." "Ah,", .he says- "It  is more glorious to die a free man  than to live in bondage."

Pay on Credit  Canadian soldiers at the front, including those who are now prisoners  of war in Germany, are-piling up quite  a tidy little savings account with.the  Canadian government. The pay allowance to the Canadians is in ..most  cas^<- being held to their credit at  the London paymaster's off ice,' as" the  men at the front have little oppo'rtun-  ify to spend money while in the war  zone, and prefer to leave all but a  small portion of it lo their credit in  London. According lo advices received  at the militia department from Lon-.  don, a considerable portion of this accumulated pay was recently invested,  on the request of the soldiers, in bonds  sold by the British,.government in connection- with  the  recent war loan.  The Canadian prisoners of war in  Germany are also accumulating a  government credit at the rate of  about 75 cents .per day. -The. pay allowance of those men from the government is being continued - while  tb.6y are prisoners, but it is impracticable -to forward it to them in Germany, and tho monthly-amount due  them is being regularly placed to  their, credit, less the shilling'per day  or' $1.75 per week, which is being  forwarded through'the ��������� Britsh war  office through arrangement with the  United States consul-general at Berlin. Tbe war office is forwarding a'  shilling per day to- British soldiers  who are prisoners in Germany, and it  was not thought wise "to-**" allow a  larger sum to the Canadian fellow-  prisoners for~spending money.  STRIKIiNG  VINDICATION  OF  STRENGTH  OF NAVY  The German Fleet/Might as well  have  been   Captured  or  Destroyed for all the-Service it has been able to Render the  Huns Since the Outbreak of Hostilities  Had Admiral Mahan lived to see the ��������� guns,   in the micl-t or f hi-, c���������*���������*���������   ,,  begmniug of the second year of the j Britsh navy contimms^o do its fnai'u  Russian Wheat  Granaries in Southern Russia Over-,,  .loaded With Grain ���������  Grain dealers and cereal farmers  will be interested in a report recently,  made _ from Petrograd by Commercial Attache Baker. He says'that the  granaries- of. estates and farms in  Southern Russia arc overloaded with  grain left over from the last crop.  The grain can be moved only within  the limits of the same district, not  from 'one district to, another,'.the object of such restriction,is to prevent  speculation. In the section' named  growers of wheat and rye have riot  been subjected-to any embarrassment  in L.consequence of not being able to  ship from Odessa this' year. The  demand ,from Russia itself has proved  unexpectedly large. The,banks have  assisted farmers and estate owners to  hold unsold portions of their grain.  There has been no need for sacrifice  sales, and the prices paid have been  satisfactory, if the route through the  Dardanelles should be opened, probably, no sudden cr heavy oversea  export ��������� "movement from Odessa would  develop. The necessity of holding  backlaz-ge supplies as food, together  with the fact that the freight service  is largely given up to military work,  would make any rapid movement of  wheat to Odessa '.unlikely','..and as. the  financial position of Russia makes it  desirable that existing high prices for  grain should be fairly well upheld,  since grain is Russia's best cash asset  the government woul ' probably dis-  hcourage any sudden heavy export  movement such as might tend seriously to depres*. the world's wheat  markets.  world war he would have found in the  events of the first year the most striking vindication yet recorded of the influence of 'sea powev upon liistory.  Except for the British navy, Germany today would be master of .the  world. Germany's marvellous preparedness, combined with her unparalleled military resources, gave the,Teutonic allies a commanding advantage  that all the rest of Europe could not  have withstood had land warfare alone  been able to determine the result.  But for the British domination of the  seas the war would be over and civilization prostrate before triumphant  German militarism.  What has been accomplished by  British se*a power has been carried  through without a single conspicuous  achievement. There has been no decisive battle. Not a single dreadnought has yet been in action except  against land defences, or has sighted  a hostile flag' at sea. None the less  the work of the- British navy as a  whole is the one-decisive factor in the  war.  German commerce has disappeared  from the ocean, and hundreds of thousands of tons of German ships are  rusting,at their piers. Except in a  clandestine fashion.Germany is cut off  from all trade wtih the outside world  an'd compelled to manufacture for herself whatever she needs for military  or civil purposes. ..Only her Baltic  ports are open.- One by one her .colonies; have dropped away, and month  by month her isolation is more complete. The military consequences of  that isolation will become more and  more important'as the war proceeds.  Since the battle cruiser engagement  in the North Sea, in which the Blucher  was destroyed, British sea power is  no'Joriger openly challenged by Germany, which is satisfied to wage a furtive submarine warfare against un:  armed merchant ships and keep Von  Tirpitz's navy snugly hidden in the  Kiel Gariah-beyond the range of British  .work without interruption, while the  losses sustained by Britsh shipping  through submarine. warfare are without real importance" as affecting"the  outcome of the wa--\  British and French commerce continues because the German's cannot  command the sea. The Allies have the  manufacturing resources of the world  to draw upon. ���������More than a million  soldiers have been landed in Franco  under naval convoy without the loss  of a single transport British colonial  troops are transported from every,  quarter of the globe as freely as in  times of peace. The operations at the  Dardanelles have been made possible  only by, the Britsh navy, and but for  the British navy Russia would not be  able to obtain the supplies of ammunition and guns without which no further resistance could, be made to tho  German advances. Most of the splendid courage and devotion of the  French people in this conflict would ���������-  have been futile had not the British  navy enabled the French government  to supply the equipment in which the  army was so fatally deficient at tho  beginning of the war. -  Much has been made by captious  critics of the failure of the British  fleet to "capture or destroy", the German fleet as it was ordered to do when  the war began. But the German fleet  might as well have been captured or  destroyed for all the service it has  been able ���������'.to render to the empire and  to German arms. .A fleet whicli is. so  completely overmatched that to Invite  battle is to invite destruction is practically non-existent for all the purposes to' which sea power can be put  in time of war.  Whether the British naval officers  have done all they could.or less than  they should, the fact remains that  British sea power has saved the Allies  from defeat, and that if Germany is  finally crushed, it is British sea power that will have determined the issue.  ���������New York World.  Loss Due to Weeds  Some Systematic Effort Should Be  Made to Grapple Successfully  With the Problem  The loss to the farmer from weeds  generally is obvious enough to the  most superficial observer. Any weed  takes up as much space" in a field, and  [draws to itself as much of the sustenance afforded by the cultivated soil, as  a grain stalk does, ami it represents,  therefore, a dead or'unrequited loss to  the owner of the crop. One.of the distinguishing marks of good as contrasted with poor farming is the comparative absence of weeds, and a large  part of the time and attention of students in agricultural colleges is devoted  to learning how'to grapple successfully -with "this obstacle to success in  farming. "X  No practical farmer needs to be iri-  ,    formed that certain weeds are spec-  _    as -the soldier   who runs away   *aiiy hard to eradicate, because they  from the battle at the front. j mav be propagated by means of under-  What happened the other oay?

Not all the doctors of the regiment could persuade them; . there  was no shirking; they said, "Not until the attack is over and we have  finished tlie Turks, not until then  will we go into the hospital." That  is the spirit which alone will enable  us to win through. Nothing short cf  it will achieve victory.  Tiie peril is a great one, the peril  is an immediate one, but if the democracy of Britain rise to the occasion, they, will once more triumph  over all the forces of despotism in  Europe. Nothing we can say can  possibly do more to convince the  people of this 'country of the danger  than the facts that appear from day  to day in the papers; not the headlines, please, pass them over. Read  the news, please, and the men who,  after doing that,  do  not  understand  ennial sow thistle- Except by frequent  disturbance by plough or disk harrow  ina dry, hot spell, it is extremely difficult to kill couch grass, because a  small fragment of the underground  stem at once becomes a new plant.  The same is true of the Canada thistle,  which has the additional fault of being  capable of producing intense irritation  by its prickles.  The perennial sow thistle has become a very formidable pest in Western Canada. It has there devastated  a large amount of fertile land, and it  bids fair .to cause losses running well  up into millions of dollars, unless  some means of checking its ravages  are found and applied. It is very productive of seed.*?, which ripen just before the grain is ready to cut, and it  spreads also by means of its underground stem, pieces of which quickly  take root and become new plants.

Lightning" Rods  Annual Loss to Farmers by Lightning  Is  Very  Large *  The annual loss inflicted on farmers, by lightning is in the aggregate t  .very large, and it is a matter of the  utmost importance to them to-ascertain definitely whether this loss is preventable. For all practical purposes,  the efforts to discover or invent some  means, of safeguarding, isolated buildings date from the time when Benjamin Franklin discovered the identity  of electricity and, lightning, more than  a century and a half ago.  Franklin was the first to suggest  the practicability of protecting buildings from lightning by erecting-on  their highest points iron conductors  communicating with ^.he ground. His  theory on the subject was all right,  but defects, in construction made the  lightning rode so ineffective and often  dangerous, that they were for a longtime utterly, and not. unreasonably,  discredited. There is now good reason"' to believe .that, as Professor  Day shows, a trustworthy system of  protection by m.eans of metal rod conductors lias.been devised, and may be  inexpensively utilized.  There is good sense in the suggestion that in most cases, the conducting rod being itself perfect, the farmer  should himself affix it to his house  or barn. ��������� The directions_given in UV.  published bulletins are easily followed, and the reasons for the various  steps are easily understood. The two  points to be kept in view are that the  rod should be absolutely continuous,  and that the lower end should be sunk  sufficiently deep in the ground to  reach permanently moist earth, and  the moister the better. A few years  ago, when the tower of the Toronto  city hall was struck by lightning, the  Globe published a theory put forward  by an ordinary farmer with a bent for  investigation. He maintained the direction taken by the electric current  indicated that a water course must  have passed from northwest to southeast under the site of the present  building, and maintained that to insure perfect safety for the hall '*.  would not he difficult to obtain practical results from its application.���������'  Toronto Globe.
