O'F  HUNGER  NO  Mainly Luxuries That Wilj be Cut Off  On Account .of the War���������Many  Staples Can Still be Imported a~  Required.  England's food suppl.- i ppears to  be adequate for some montlis to  come, sand now that the first excitement over the -war crisis has settled  doAvn.^the rumors of a danger of famine lii the country are shown to he  unfounded. Prices bagan to go up  at once, esecially on wheat and  (lour, which control the price of bread,  hut assurances regarding the resources of the Uniterl Kingdom have  now begun to have a beneficial effect.  The country as a whole is taking a  1 ifional view of the situation. Only  in a'few cases has fear prevailed to  the point of attempting to buy up  unnocsssary household supplies. Many  of the grocers, to their credit, have  v--fused to take advantage or excessive demands, and by asking cash  and calming their customers have  sought to lessen pt.nic and frustrate  selfish  buyers.  The press lias been urging the folly  of a food panic and the government  plans to insure shipping carrying food  and raw material for tho United  Kingdom against war risks, and to  care for the distribution of food landed, have done much to reassure people."- They are realizing that danger  lies not so much in actual shortage as  in^^i fear of shortage, which might  produce panic. A general setimenc  against selfisli buying is being fostered.  Regarding the wheat resources, a  writer in the Daily Telegraph says:  ���������'Wheat and flour are far and away  th * most important articles imported  into the country. Whereas the aver-  consumption of wheat foodstuff per  head of the' population is, roughly,  :H2 pounds, the average annual consumption of meat of all kinc��������� is only  about 120 pounds per capita.  "Happily, as the following figures  show, Great Britain is relying less  and less upon foreign market for  her supply of cereals, -while more and  more grain is being imported from  our overseas dominions. Our wheat  imports now, as compared with 1-1  years ago, are divided as folloAvs: -  Wheat Imports���������Grain  rom British Empire:  no  the  this  the  j  1898  ..  1912   ..

Canada's consignment  of 21,501,000 cwt. was valued at -������8,-  845,000. Australia's contribution of*  '"wheat was valued at ������5,335,000. From.

Last year  the total wheat and wheat-flour retained for home consumption was  149.641,000 cwt.  "Supplies may be said to come in  continuously throughout the year, as-  follows:  January���������Wheat from Pacific coarr  of America.  February    and    March���������Argentine  vheat.  April���������Australian wher. ..  July  and   August���������American   (winter) wheat, Canadian wheat. '  ���������jeptember and  October���������American  (spring)   wheat,  Russian  wheat.  November���������Canadian wheat.  Optimism about the wheat supply is  further   reflected by a writer in the  Chronicle as follows:  "The board of agriculture and fisheries stated officially that this year's  wheat crop of the United Kingdom is  grown on an average 4 per cent, greater than last year, and that the yield  will be above the average. It is estimated that the crop will be not less  than 7,000,000 quarters. After.deductions for seed and taking stocks into  account on which an inquiry conduct-  e-i by the board has just been completed���������there is now in this country  sufficient wheat to supply the whole  population for about four months. This  allows for tho normal rate of consumption, and it is irrespective of all  future:   imports   from   abroad."  The situation with regard to meat  is not less satisfactory. The normal  killings of home-grown stock supply  GO per cent, of the annual consumption. England is not necessarily de-  peinlcnt upon, foreign imports for the  baiance of supplies, as in case of emergency it could be provided by  slaughtering a larger proportion of  home slock. This contingency cannot,  however, arise in present circumstances. There is at this moment an  exceptionally large supply of foreign  meat in cold storage. Heavy consignments are on/the way. There is,  therefore, no justification in the present '. osition for any rise in price iu  meat. v  A prominent official of the board of  agriculture said that if the price of  meat or alarm at the price of feeding  stuffs causes farmers and breeders to  kill female animals the loss to the  country will bo felt for years. It is  impossible to say how long it would  take to supply the loss, if there Is  anything like a wholesale slaughtering  W. N. U. 1020  of sews and ewes and cows.  Some cottage people, who have been  unable in tlie last day or two to get  tlslivery of food, have already begun  to soil their sows, and it has beconi'j  very .hnpor'.ant tliat some official assurance as to tho supply of fodder  should be given, since the holding up  of stores may do almost as much damage in this direction' as a genei-'U  shortage.  "There are," one importer said,  "tho- sands and thousands of tons of  moat in the Smithfleld cold storage,  and with reasonable economy and  care, the supply may last six months."  "Owing to the depletion of fishing  crew's by the calling out of the reservists and the position in the North  Sea," says tho Telegraph, "many vessels are reported to be on the point of  ceasing activity, and authorities at  Billingsgate have predicted a fish  famine. There are practically  stocks of cured or saltc'i fish in  coun ry, as the popular taste for  class of article has declined.  "No fears are entertained on  Coal Exchange regarding the position.  A leading member of the Coal Factors'  Society stated that London was well  ���������supplied Avi'th coal, the stocks in hand  being sufficient to meet demands for  a considerable time,  "Although the prices of vegetables  showed a considerable increase,"  says the Standard, "there is no fear  of a panic in that direction. At this  time of the year London is not so dependent upon the resources of  French soil as at other seasons. Our  own vegetable crop is a good one, and  it will last for months. Tho  ,;taple article���������the potato���������has ti.e  best crop for years, and is generally  free, from disease. Therefore,-- whi:c  the householder may have to pay a  higher price for that commodity in  the future,-any idea of famine prices  having to be paid may at once be dismissed. Beans, peas, and cabbages  may show heavier advances, but these  are not so indispensable as the potato  and the householder will be able to  economize supplies in that direction.  "Tlie fruit market presents a different aspect. The London marker  ordinarily receives two-thirds of its  supply from France. With the-almost abnormal home crop of the present season, our neighbors' contribution was estimated at three-fifths.  Advices received are to the effect  that the last vessel of the line supplying the market from Cherbourg has  .left, while from Havre and Honfleur  there will be no steamers. No notification has been received from St.  Malo, and it is hoped that that service may be maintained a few days'  longer.

The fundamental difference between  the ideals and methods of the Christian Endeavor, movement and those of  the organizations that had preceded  it was in the emphasis placed upon  the clement of religious obligation,  and the definite character of its committee work. It made duty its keynote, not feeling or amusement. The  prayer-meeting Avas its heart,-with the  spiritual dynamic to inspire and energize all its individual and committee  activities.  before the famous aphorism of the  psychologist, "No impression without  expression," had been applied to religion, the young people's movement  had demonstrated-it. The society became ihe manual training school of  tliC/Church, where the young disciples  learned how to speak by speaking, and  how to work by working.  It is safe to say that it has largely  helped to transform the attitude of the  church toward tho young disciples.  The church now that is not actively  interested in the training of its young  people is a curiosity. It has also  changed the attitude of the young people toward the church. No longer do  thoy hold aloof and camp on the outer  edge ;they are in the heart of things.  It has broadened their conception of  the religious life, and instead of placing th emphasis upon being saved,  their motto is, "Saved to' serve."  It has placed the young people at  the front in all movements for temperance, civic righteousness and moral  reform and to ihcir leadership Avas  largely due the nationwide interest in  such campaigns as tho "Go-to-Church-  Sunday," and the "Saloonless Nation  by 1920.-'  It has given to the young people a  new vision of the churches' obligation  to obey the great commission, "Go  yo into all the world," and the initial  plans for tho great and successful educational campaign for missions, carried on by the Young People's Interdenominational 'Missionary Movement,  now tho Missionary Education Movement, Avere prepared by Amos R.

Then put on a  heavy land roller which will pack tho  sod and thereby hasten its decay:  next.use the disk and follow Avith the "  smoothing harrows.' Should any weed  growth appear, keep the dislcand harrows going at short intervals until  the soil is well decayed. A cultivator  with broad points may then be used.  The-object is to destroy all. weed  growth until autumn, Avhen the soil  should be ploughed thoroughly and,  well  set  up  to  the.winter's  frost.  On such land it is best to sow some  kind of hoed crop, such as roots, corn'  or potatoes, thi>t requires constant  hoeing and- cultivation during the  growing season. If this method of cultivation 'is adhered to closely, it will  be found to be one of the best meana**.  <,*.- eradicating noxious Aveeds and also ���������  of preparing the soil for future crops.  Actual experiments have demonstrated that a much - greater yield  may.be expected from land cultivated  in the foregoing manner as compare 1  v :tli that secured from fields which  have been left in sod and ploughed m'  late autumn. In one instance, two  four-acre plots were,cropped with oats,  for purposes of comparison, and the  plot which had-been thoroughly cultivated during the autumn yielded 60  bushels more than Avas secured from  "*ie land not so cultivated. The net  increase in revenv.-j, after making, due  allowance for cost of cultivation  amounted to $14.00.  ��������� A similar experiment was conducted  with sugar beets on Iavo plots���������one  cultivated after harvest, the other  spring-ploughed. In this case the difference in yield was even more noticeable than with oats. It was found  that the land cultivated occasionally  during the autumn .producel beets at  the rate of 11% tons per acre, while  the yield from spring-ploughed land  was only S 4-5 tons per acre." Stated  n dollars and-cents, this'difference  is' very co.ivi.icing;,. figured at the  prevailing price for' beets, it showed -  a greater revenue from cultivated  land of .*"* 16.03 per acre.���������J.P., In Conservation.

At"-first-  coffee came only from Northern Africa, Arabia and Turkey; then the  Dutch began experimenting, and succeeded, in '"cultivating it in Java, and  tlie French in the West Indies.  The story goes that in 1760 a Portuguese, Joao Alberta Castello Bran-  co, planted a bush in Dio de Janeiro.  Thanks   to   the   pecularity   favorable  soil and    climate,   Brazil/ soon   outstripped  all  other lands  in  the production  of.-coffee.

Restoring Crape  To restore a crape veil place a folded sheet on a table and to it pin the  veil  carefully and  straight;    do  not  stretch  it a particle.-   Dissolve    one  teaspoonful     of granulated  sugar in  one pint of boiling Avater; Avet a clean  cloth with this -nd lay it lightly on  the crape.   Have an iron very hot; go  over the wet cloth as tlroug-h ironing  it, but do not let the iron touch it;  continue until the cloth is nearly dry.  Then' Avet  the  cloth  again  and  continue the same process until the entire  veil has been gone over.    The crape  Avill be  full of deep crinkles and as  crisp as new, no matter how old and  flat  it  Avas   when  you  began.  Small  pieces of crape for trimming can be  renewed in the same Avay.   The crape  should be shaken and brushed to remove al  traces of dust before starting the restoring process.���������New York i  Sun. I  An Unrepresentative House  One of the most elaborate-calculations of tlfe composition of the house  of commons a hundred years ago is  given in Dr. Old field's "Representative  History." According to this, 218  members were returned by 87 peers in  England and Wales, 31 members by  21 peers in Scotland and 51 members  by 36 peers in Ireland. Thus just 300  members Avere returned by peers.. In  addition 137 members Avere returned  by 90 commoners in England and  Wales, 14 members by 14 commoners  in Scotland, and 20 members by 1!)  commoners in Ireland, Avhile tho treasury commanded 11 seats, the admiralty 4 and the ordnance 1. Consequently in a house of 65S numbers 171  could claim to be more or less independent.���������London  Chronicle.

Cinder in the Eye  Usually the  eye can  take  care  of  itself as the lid is very quick to close  and protect it from foreign substances.  But there are times when a tiny bit  Avill get embedded and if you are far  from a doctor, home-made helps must  be applied.    Occasionally you    find a  family medicine closet Avhich contains  an eyestone, but its use by an amateur  ���������is ne\-er recommended by   an oculist.  It has boon discovered that the most  comforting thing in the case of something in the eye, is to have a friend  apply his or her tongue to the eyeball.  It gives immedif.te relief; the foreign  body is found at once- and taken out,  the     warmth  of the  tongue is A'ery  grateful to the inflamed surface, and  the secretions of the tongue are A'ery  healing as is Avell known. The redness  leaves  in a  few minues.    This safe  surgesion is generally    available'and  is  worth remembering.  Between Girls  Marie-rlTow are you going to reform him?

"I got no relief from doctors nor  from the numberless heart and nerve  remedies "I tried, because I uidn't  know that coffee was daily putting  me back more than tlie doctors could  put nie ahead." (Tea, also, is harmful,  because it contains the same poisonous drug, caffeine, found iu coffee).

Buttermilk and Health  All"boys who over churned out on  a cool old back porch learned to expect their reward, in'a cup of creamy  buttermilk. Lads do not .much reflect on whether foods are good for  them or not, but some who have-now  reached mature years are learning  that the drink o������ boyhood days has  a strange power for.health. The bacteria of good buttermilk are especially useful in promoting healthy digestion. Some doctors teach that the internal revenue department 'may become infested with harmful bacteria;  some of these tho germs in buttermilk will attack and destroy. The  scientist Metchnikoc found tiie Bulgarian people living often to a very  ripe old age, ami upon investigation  it was revealed that their diet consisted largely of sour milk and buttermilk. Today in some cities ono  can buy artificially made buttermilk,  containing the Bulgarian ferment,  and daily the consiunption of tho  pleasant and healthful beverage  grows apace.

Costs,  $25,000    to   Kill   Each   Soldier  What does* it cost to���������.Mll a man in  war? Probably $25,000 in tho present conflict.  The- cost of killing one soldier is  obtained ..by dividing the cost of a war  to any of the belligerents by the  number of'men killed on the other  side.  In the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-  71 the cost of killing each man was  $21,000, but the cost of every material  of warfare has advanced substantially  since then. It is safe to estimate, unless the,torri'Ic"dcstruction of machine  guns upsets precedent, that to bring  about a soldier's death will cause an  expenditure of .?25,000 oil tho other;  side.  France spent $-100',000,000 in actual  expenses of that war and $200,000,000  in repairing materials, giving help to  fatherless families and other uses.  Tho German dead numbered 28,000,  and for every ��������� one of them Franco  spent approximately  ?21,000.  The figures of the Rtisso-Turkish  war oi! 1S77-78 give an average of  ?15,000  for every, one killed.  It cost Russia'$.1,200,000,000 Lo kill  5S,(J00 Japanese in tho war of 11)05,  making the cost of individual slaying  $20,100.  -.'Fatigue, typhus or cholera will, of  course, kill the greatest number and  reduce the effective'' force--of armies.  In the Crimean war four times as  many were killed by disease as were  killed in battle. Advanced hygiene  undoubtedly will do much to cut down  these figures, btu death by disease in  war times " surely cannot be entirely  obliterated.

Keeping Horses Busy  A government investigation of operations on twenty-eight farms at Conway, Ark., .disclosed the fact that except when held work was very urgent  the horses were not worked more than  one-third of the time in good weather. For instance, last January there  were twenty-one days when the  ground was fit to plow and yet some  farmers did not turn a furrow. The  average amount of field work done per  horse on the twenty-eight farms was  6.C days during the month and the  average amount of other work occupied 5.2 days. Three times as much  Held work could just as well have  been done, and nearly twice as much"  work altogether might have been  done.  Later on these farmers fell behind  with.their work because of bad weather. One of them cut and hauled  wood in January at ?1.25 per day for  himself and team, while more enterprising neighbors turned in wet, with  only half of the clays fit for field work.  This -man was greatly delayed in get-*  ting in his crop. Some of these  twenty-eight farmers had .to leave  part of their land idle this year because of the delay from rains late in  the spring. ' Those who plowed  early got their crops in on time, with  the work well done and the ground  all occupied.  A horse is paid whether it works  or not. . The pay is included in the  interest on its value, the amount of  depreciation and the cost of feed and  care. This expenditure goes on daily  whether the horse is idle in the pas-1)  ture or doing productive work. Whenever a farmer looks out over his pasture and sees some of his horses idle  there, he should ask himself why he  .does not have them at work. In these  days of high-priced feed it pays to  'keep only horses able to do a full  day's work day after day.. Economy  demands further that the work must  be planned so as to keep them employed as steadily as possible. Then  it is not necessary to keep so many  horses.���������Breeders' Gazette.  Forced to Tell the Truth  Smith was one of the foremost engineers of his time. His one fault  was an enormous bump of conceit.  Ho completed a piece of work for a  large corporation,, and was compelled  to sua for his fee, which was $25,000.  He was being crossed examined by  tlie attorney-acting as counsel for the  corporation.  "On what ground do you base your  exorbitant charge on this miserable  piece of work."  "On the ground that I am the  greatest engineer-in the world."  After the suit had been concluded  one of Smith's friends came to hinr  and in, an admonishing tone, said:  "Smith, you should never make such  statements in public; allow others to  acclaim you as the greatest in your  profession." -  Smith answered: "I know it, and I  felt like a blooming idiot up there on  the stand, but, blast it all, I was under oath."

Keeping   Watch   on   Food   Prices  Tlie government is keeping a close  and consistent watch on the food  prices throughout Canada and is in receipt of regular report:: showing the  fluctuations.  Generally speaking, there were naturally advances in the price of numerous commodities, but there have  been some cases where the rise has  not been of a profitable character.  Since the government vested itself  with wide-authority to deal with any  attempts at extortion, prices in cer-  tRin lines and places have declined  somewhat. If there is any determiend  move to unduly enhance the price of  the necessities of life, the situation  will he dealt with promptly and effectively. So far, however, the necessity  for rigid action has not arisen.  W. N. U. 1020  Exhausted Nerves Were Fully Restored by Dr. Chase's Nerve Food  .

How We Go to Sleep  Sleep begins in its first phase by a  state of distraction, which brings on  states of absentmindedness, accompanied always by numerous and separate hallucinations, closely, connected  with the length of the absentnrinded  states. Immediately afterwards, in a  second phase, Jjieso states of distraction pass into' a very delicate motor  disturbance, due to the absence of  parallelism in the axes of the eyes or  by the deviation of their conjugate  movements, says the Family Doctor.  Finally, in a third and final phase,  which indicates tlie very near approach of actual sleep, the vasomotor  system seems to conform to laws very  different from those that, regulate its  mechanism duriiirr waking hours.

THE " SUN",   GRAND    FORKS, ~ B7E  on  IHE FALSE POSITION  BY GERMANY  WAGED WAR UPON BELGIUM  AND  - DISREGARDED  NEUTRALITY  The    German    Chancellor,  Von  Beth-  mann Hollweg, Declared That Necessity    Knows  No   Law���������The   End  Justifies the Means.  The day on which England delivered her ultimatum to Germany, the German Chancellor made a speech in the  Reichstag which seems destined to-be  memorable in the annals of civilization, says the London Times editorially.   It is, we believe, the most crude  avowal on record of utter immorality  on the part of a great state.    That  avowal is tho i..ore striking because  It is made by a statesman who lias  won    respect and confidence in this  country for his upright personal character and for the sense of justice and  fairness he was supposed lo entertain.  He    has shown us himself how the  ��������� most just and reasonable, of German,  politicians can think and speak when  <their Interests come into conflict with  the rights'of other men.  "Gentlemen, we are now in a slate^  of necessity, and necessity knows no  law! Our troops have occupied Lux-  embers, and perhaps (as a matter of  fact the speaker knew that Belgium  had been invaded that morning) are  already on Belgian soil.. Gentlemen,  that is contrary to the dictates of international law. It is true, that the  French government has declared ,at  Brussels that France is willing to respect the neutrality of Belgium as  long as her opponents respect it. We  knew, however, that France stood  r uly for the invasion. France couid  ���������wait but we could not wait. A French  . -ovement upon our Hank upon tlie  lower Rhine might have been disastrous". So we were compelled to override the just protest of the Luxemberg-  and Belgian governments.' The wrong-  ���������I speakopenly���������that we are commit-^  ting we will endeavor to make good as'  soon as our military goal has been  reached. Anybody who is threatened,  t ; we are threatened, and is fighting  for his highest possessions can have  only one thought���������how he is to hack  his way through."  The end justifies the means. Men  threatened, as the Germans affected  to suppose themselves threatened,  could think of nothing but how -"to  hack 'their way through"���������to . hack  their way through, as they have been j  hacking' it b3fore Liege, without a  thought for the seas of innocent blood  they are shedding in the* quarrel  which the German chancellor himself  proclaims to be 'unjust.- Observers of  German policy and'students of Prussian history have long known that  these principles were cherished by  the heirs of the Frcdericia:i tradition  They have seen them inculcated and  held up to admiration in the works of  eminent professors and of distinguished military writers. Tliey r.re familiar  with theui in the essays and speeches  ofjhe naval league and in the articles  of "the Pan-German presr,. Thay have  behel.i the partial application oi' the  doctrine at Algeciras, at Agadir, and  on innumerable lesser occasions. They  have expected for years to see them  adopted in some grand adventure. But  they did not expect to hear Herr Von  Bethmann Hollweg openly preach the  creed of Machiavelli in its utmost repulsive shape to the elected representatives of the nation which boasts its  high culture and its lofty ideals to  mankind. ���������"������������������'���������  It is not the outrages on all rights  which the Prusco-Germans have committed that surprise students of their  "past; it is the ignorance and tha  stupidity with which they have set  about these outrrges. In every quarter���������in Russia, in Italy, in France, ia  Belgium, and above all in the British  empire���������������������������they have displayed an incapacity to'appreciate facts which  were perfectly obvious, and which it  was vital for.them to grasp, that is  amazing. If we are to believe them,  they gave Austria-Hungary a freehand in her dealings with Servia.  They were startled and shocked when  they saw in the Austro-Hungarian  note the first result of the unaccustomed liberty they had allowed  their ally. Nevertheless, they justified and supported her. demands without realizing at first that they were  jeopardizing the peace ��������� of Europe.  They, thought that everybody was unready except Germany. Thoy forgot  the strength of Russian Pan-Slav and  Pan-Orthodox passion. Russia-had no  right to intervene,-and the German  ambassador at Vienna doubted if she  would try. Neither she nor France  was ready, while Germany "knew very  well what she was about." They hau  no eyes save for what was superficial. They were struck by our divisions, by gun-running and tlie talk of  some of our Socialists and by tlie menace of impending strikes. The (Jaii-  laux scandal, the defeat of the Ribot  "Ministry and of Mr. Delcasse, the spectacle of an ex-Socialist Prime Minister  governing with the help of a raw  chamber, which numbered over a hundred Socialists in its ranks, impressed ���������  them in France. Italy would, off  course, hearken with docility to the ,  admonitions of Berlin and lavish her  blood and treasure in a war of aggression begun for the advantage of Austria-Hungary in the Balkans. ��������� Belgium  would complacently prostitute her liberties to -Gorman military convenience at the mere rattle cf the German  ���������sabre, if she was prudish, the invincible army of Sadowa and Sedan had  but to "hack their way through."  As for England, Herr Von Beth-  man Hollweg and his imperial master  could treat her as Birmarck treated  Louis Napoleon, she was cred. Ious,  bIic was bent on peace at any price.  She should  have both���������ample assur  ance and peace with- infamy. Every  ono of these assumptions has been  proved false. They ignored elementary truths felt by.ihe "man in the  streets" in each of the countries to  which they relate. He .would never  have flimg Von Hollweg's doctrine in  tin face of the world on the eve of  a European war. : He would not have  under-estimated the Slav sentiment  of Russia, the anti-Austrian sentiment  of Italy, the strength and resolutioa  of French patriotism, the devotion of  the Belgians to their free country, or  even the strength'of their fortresses  He would not have committed-the fatuous error���������worthy of: the besotted  diplomacy : of the East���������of begging  England to stand aside while he  tranii led upon Belgium and Invaded  France.  -~To the astonishment of-'all men, a  like insensibility to all views but the  German view pervades the whole field  of German statecraft. It suffers of  all realists" so often denounced���������the  error of. "seeing pictures" instead of  realities."lt"sees nothing that it is not  fain to.see, and has shut its eyes to  that inost important of realities, the  national:feeling of.other peoples. That  is why it has launched Europe into  war, and why it openly preaches to a  bewildered world that for" tho people  of Goethe and of Kant there is no law  but the sword.  HAS    HAD    STRENUOUS    CAREER  How Admiral Jellicoe Won and Lost a  Medal  Britain's admiral irt\the North Sea  has had exciting times in his life.  When a lieutenant on Ii.M.S.  Monarch, a Glasgow steamer stranded off Europa Point, on the Spanish  Coast, about three miles from Gibraltar.  The Monarch had left Gibraltar for  target practice and had left, all her  boats but one small one behind. Seeing the almost hopeless' position of  theTuttrickdale's crew, tlie commander of the battleship called for volunteers, and Lieutenant Jellicoe and  ceven seamen got into the small boat  and pulled for all they were worth.  The boat could not live in the heavy  seas, however, and before they could  reach the wreck it capsized.  Fortunately each man had donned  a cork jacket before starting, and  after a terrible struggle in the waves  all of them were washed ashore more  dead than alive. The crew of..the  stranded ship was rescued by a  Spanish fishing boat; and the British  board of trade -distributed rewards,  Lieutenant Jellicoe receiving a medal,  which he was destined to lose.  He was commander of M.H.S. Victoria when she was rammed in 1893  by the Camperdown. At the time  of the disaster, Commander Jellicoe  was down with a sharp attack of fever. Startled by the terriP.c crash as  the two great ships came together,  the invalid struggled from his bunk  and staggered up on deck, clad only  in pyjamas.  '   '���������������������������.���������." .  Commander- Jellicoe stood on the  bridge, the flags in his "hands''ready  for signals, when ��������� suddenly, with a  wild plunge, the enormous vessel  buried her bow beneath the surface  of the sea: Most of those on deck  were thrown into the"* sea, and then  followed a scene that those who saw  it would willingly forget.  The Victoria's keel was high in  the air, her twin-screw propellers  racing madly. Gradually as the vessel sank, the screws came down lower and*' lower -.towards the mass of  men struggling in the water. At last  the great steel flanges, still whirling,  sank into the waves, .and several  hundred men were literally torn to  p.~c*s in the maelstrom.  Commander Jellicoe was too wea.:  with fever to do much to save himself, and had it not been for a young  midshipman, who helped him to  struggle away from the-sinking ship,  it is unlikely that he would havebeen  amongst the survivors.  His board of trade medal went  down with the rest of his property,  and when he applied for a duplicate  the board informed him that he  would have to pay for it.  -., Admiral Jellicoe accompanied Admiral Seymour on - his march to relieve the, Legations at Pekin during tlie -Boxer rebellion.  Surrounded on all hands, the allied troops decided to retreat to Tientsin.--''On the way they sighted a large  body of cavalry, and, mistaking they  stood out in the open and signalled.  They found out their mista' e when  the cavalry opened fire.  " I*n the melee that followed Captain  .e'iicoe, charging at the head of his  imn., was shot through the lung. His  wound was dangerous eonugh, but it  i.ws made much worse by the next  five days' retreat to Tienstin, harassed by the enemy most .of the  time.  But even from this, perhaps tlie  narrowest of his escapes, the Admiral  managed to pull through and lived  to '.command the empire's greatest  fleet in .the greatest war in history.  f FAILED -���������*  SIG0L1IZ  NOW'LOSING HER SOUTH AFRICAN  POSSESSIONS  -IFTY   PER   CENT.

Has Done Very Little to Develop Her  African Colonies���������Only One Brought  to the Point of Self-Existence Without State, Aid.    "���������,  ���������   Germany at the outbreak    of    the  war owned four colonies in Africa.  How many she possesses now cannot be stated. -. One of them,-Togo-  land,, was captured by Great Britain  on August^Gth. No one can say how  far Great Britain has already gone in  dispossessing Germany of her important colonies, which covered 931,420  square miles.  In spite-of a good deal of talk about  Germany's need of colonies, very lit-  tle^has" been done in,the Cameroons,  German East Africa, or German  Southwest Africa to develop .-these possessions, and of all the African colonies only one, Togoland, has been  brought to the point of self-existence:  without state aid from Germany.  It will be remembered that in 1900  Germany was perfectly willing to  barter a foreign colony in exchange  for Heligoland, the tiny island in the1  North Sea, then owned by Great-  Britain./' ^ ��������� -���������--   ���������::;'v  Togoland was important ��������� to the  British empire for two reasons. It  has the largest wireless telegraphic  station in the .whole world, and afforded the means .'of keeping the  German' fleet in Atlantic waters in  touch with the home offices, and'  with other colonies. And the foreign  commerce of its "1,500,000 inhabitants  is important, exports amounting to  over ?2,000,000 per annum, and imports to about ?2,500,000. Cotton is  being grown with very promising results, and altogether its possession  will comfortably round out our Gold  Coast colony, which has been incommoded many times by its troublesome neighbors. "Under British rule  its trade, importance will speedily increase,, and the arilway system, already inaugurated, -will no doubt be  continued' throughout the great agricultural, districts, as yet mostly undeveloped.  German Southwest Africa caused  a wild rush of speculation in Germany in 1909, and brought on something like a panic,' when the discovery of diamonds was found to be of  les importance than had been hoped  for. It is now believed that its copper deposits, which may as mining  progresses, display silver and possibly  gold .contents    will    be    of    greater  v.lue than the blue clay in which  diamonds are usually found.  The land is not particularly fertile,  and though the exports ran up to  ?8,000,000 in 1910, it is not considered an exceedingly desirable possesr  sion, excepting that it might give'  Rhodesia a good outlet to the sea on  the west coast. ���������  German East Africa is perhaps a  more valuable; possession, - having a  good sized trade in -hides, rubber,  coffee and cotton, the exports figuring up., to $5,609,425 in 1911. Rhodesia  it ���������������������������-ill be remembered., lies between  these two colonies, which shut it in  from the sea.  It is hardly likely, liowever, that  the allies will ^desire permanently to  deprive Germany of all of her overseas possessions however necessary  'it may be to annex them temporarily.  With the control of the seas in their  hands; it would, be an easy matter  to acquire and hold them all, since  there are barely any German troops  left to protect them, and the numbers of German residents are not,  larg\ '���������- ���������.-��������� :���������..������������������- -   ���������  In fact the Germans have not  shown themselves to be skilled in  colonizing, at least in tropical countries.���������Montreal Tainily Herald.

Dressing himself  with tho utmost care, he went through  the house on the arm of a servant  an I finally reached the library. The  night before there was a terrific storm  and the great statesm-vi expressed  solicitude for the safety of the fishermen off the coast. As he looked from  the window his eye fell upon a number of pleasure boats which had been  moored to a little mound in the arti-  jicial pond in. tho rear of the house.  "Well," said he, "the home squadron  ir cafe. I think I will go baok.' It  was his last playful remark, lie never,  left his room again.  Women  ar.d   War  "It is signilicant that in all of  these countries which have declared  war, women have not yet been enfranchised. To be sure, if they had  the vote, they could not stop war all  at once, but they would in time, in  many nations, as in England, when  there are a million more women than  men, the chief argument against  'Votes for Women' is that they would  tend  to weaken military prowess!  "Women have long since passed  that stage where they considered it a  glorious thing to bring sons into the  world that they might grow up to  sacriflco their life for their country  in warfare. However you put it, war  y .ighs more heavily on the women."  Present    Type    of    Submarine Bomb  Was Perfected by the Italians���������Two  Types     of    Contact   Mines  Are  in  ,Use. ':   .  The submarine mine is playinj a  large part in the present European  conflict. Probably it will cause more  havoc that in the Japanese-Russian  war. .- ..'  Already one British ship, 1 le Am-  phion, has been'destroyed b.* a North  Sea mine laid by the Germans, with  a loss of 120 men. It might be poetic  justice that the ship which placed  tho mine, the Koenigen Luise, was  caught redMianded, and sent to tho  bottom. HoYvever, the kaiser's minelayer already had sown tha seed o������-  disaster, and 'he North Sea may see  as many ships hit below the water  line as \vere sunk by mines in the  Y.'llow Sea in the .Japanese-Russian  s Higgle.  This may seer', barbarous, for there  was a day when the submarine mine  was abhorred, as Robert Fulton found  out early in the nineteenth century  when he sought to interest the British Admiralty in this manner of annihilating the most formidable of  fleets. Since then the susceptibilities  of civilized -nations have undergone  a change and the submarine mine il  now ��������� an accepted engine of destru>  tion.-./ ;.    ....    ..���������.:-';-  England alone is said .to have 20,-  000 of these mines, ready for service.  But in ���������"military logic, there is a  rational excuse for the soYving of  contact mines in the open sea. According to the i !d Roman Liyv, terri-  tbri?! rights in adjacent waters extended up to the middle lines, just  as tY.o neighboring states upon a river  have their boundaries in the centre of  the stream.  Applied to oceans aud seas, this  was deemed too extended a field of  control, and accordingly tho territorial  limit of three miles, sometimes called  a marine leagir, Yvas set, because ia  those days the range of artillery did  not reach beyond that.  Today the great guns of the newest Dreadnoughts have a bombarding  range of nearly fifteen miles. Ther>  fore if the enemy can bombard coast  cities froni the great distance out at  sea, Yvhy shoutyj. it no; be permissable  to mine the open Yvaters that far off  the coast? > -        ���������  The Germans are not new at this  form of coast defence, and in this  war they are but profiting by past experience. The :.iofal effect of submarine mines YYas amply demonstrated in the Franco-Prussian Yvar of 1870.  V-.en tho Prussians defended their  principal harbors in tho North Sea  ������������������ ' the Baltic by means of mechanical  and electro-niec'unical mines.  The .'aiser's OYvn people were the  first to reap the fruit o.' their own  planting. On raising their mine field  after the Yvar of 1S70, the Cermans  lost a great many lives through unexpected explosions.  Th.e present    type    of    su" marine  1 /nib was perfected by the Italians.  Ti.are are two types of contact mines,  those that explode Yvhen struck and  those that explode only when an  electric current is switched on from  ije shore.. Thcs: latter mine j are  only for harbor defence. They are  harmless so long as there is no current, but become active when the  electricity is turned on. Thus these  mines are a menace to hostile ships,  but offer no danger to peacefji  ��������� .ssels.  The mines being planted now in  the North Sea are obviously not of  the latter type. They are in the  open se.o, too far from any base of  operations to be controlled. They  ara there ready for action, and unfortunately they 'have no power of  discrimination. They will go off  under a friendly ship just as ouickly.  as under the vessel of an enemy.  'To make these bombs safe for  handling by the planting ships, they  are so constructed that they do not  become "alive" or active until they  have been in the water for half an  hour.  Colds and Colds  "Without having gene anywhere-  near either pole," writes a correspondent of the London Chronicle, "l have  had my experience of-the fact that intense cold outside stops the cold iu  t** ������ head. We were ������iv -"OTi essaying  the ascent of the Grand Conibin in the  Alps (over 11,000 feet). From our  first attempt we were driven back by  a thunderstorm, and a stay of some  hours to dry in the hut with tlie stove  going woke up all the microbes. Wiien  we returned to the hut next day from  tlie valley there were at lea;; four  severe colds arnoug us, witii sneezing  and sore throats. On tlie third inoru-  in ; we traversed our peak, slowly cutting snow and ice steps i i weather  memorably bitter even for that height.  On tlie other side it suddenly occurred  to mc that I had no 'cold' left, aud  the other made the same discovery."  Prosperity ia Communistic  A man cannot prosper in any honest  business without benefiting tlie community as well as himself, for he cannot induce men to deal with him without offering them an advantage; and,  taking all the transactions of life together the advantages which men offer  to others must, on the whole, be equal  to those which they receive them-  Hclves. Doing business, therefore, is a  very effectual and extended mode of  (>ing good, and the fortune Yvhich Is  acquired in doing it is, in a very important sense, tho measure and Index  of the good done.���������Jacob Abbott.
