 Kettle Valley Orchardist  i!i  FOURTEENTH YEAR-.No. 5  GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1914  $1.00 PER YEAR  IEEIING OF THE  CITY GOUNCI  "Mayor4 Gaw and, Aid. Bonthron-  Henniger, - Manly ' and" McCallum  -   were present .at the regular meeting  of tbe city council on Monday evening.      'I  A -letter was read from W. O.  Miller, .district .superintendent of  the CP.R , stating that the council'a  cjmnau'nication in reference to a  subway at the Winnipeg avenue  crossing bad been referred to the  officials of the road. Received and  filed.   . *~     -  Secretary Hull, of the Grand  Forks school-board, in a letter to the  c mncil,' stated that, in compliance  with the-request of the council, the  board had decided to exercise all  possible economy during- the com-,  ing winter, and that on the first of  January a reduction .of 10 per cent  inthe salaries of teachers would be  made.  The city, health officer "reported  .that' an' indigent patient bad been  received at the Cottage hospital. It  developed, in the discussion on., the  case, that the man had vacated,the  hospital the day .after.his admit-  - tance. ���������    , .  W.'   M.   DeCew  and  Dr.   Acres  visited  the "councils a .delegation-  -, from the board of trade, and   urged  that the council send and defray the  expenses of a deputation of one to  Victoria   to   urge   upon   our local  member- and    other    government  officials the necessity ol Ihe government carrying on some public-work  in this" vicinity this   winter in order  to  give   employment   to  the   idle  workmen in the city.    Mr.   DeCew  stated that districts whose industries  had   not. been   affected by the war  had secured advances on  the coming year's appropriations for public  works,   and  it  was  his' belief that  Grand Forks, where   the   war   had  caused a suspension of   the  mining  and smelting industries,had a more  valid claim for such.an advance. He  suggested  -that   Mayor  Gaw be selected as  the   delegate. -Dr.   Acres  stated   that   the  people of Cascade  were sending a deputation  to   Victoria on the same errand.    He  said  .there was a great deal of road   work  in the environments of the city that  could be done this winter.  The mayor and aldermen thought  _ the suggestion made by Messrs. DeCew and Acres was a good one, and  that if the-Victoria government could  be induced to act along these lines,  the city government would be relieved, to a considerable   extent,   of  a burdensome responsibility; but  they were disinclined to act hastily,  with duly informing themselves as  to the probability of the success of  the mission before incurring the expense of the deputation, and therefore they decided to postpone action  in the matter until an adjourned  meeting Friday afternoon. In the  meantime they will endeavor to ascertain to what extent the deputations from other cities have met  with suceess.  Aid. Bonthron, chairman of the  board of works, reported that the  rock work on the streets had been  completed and the outfit housed for  the   winter.    About   1200 loads of .leaders   may   be  read  crushed   rock   had  been hauled on  Loudon Daily Express.  the streets. He suggested' that tbe  council tender-Road Superintendent  Spraggett and the provincial government a vote of thanks for the use of  the rock crusher. He had interviewed Divisional Superintendent  Miller, of tbe C.P.R., regarding a  subway at theWmnipeg avenue crossing. Mr.'Miller had given him the  impression"that the officials "of the  road would* not entertain the project at present, as they claimed the  work would cost about $30,000. In  lieu of a subway, and in view of the  fact that the trestle wpuld soon have  to be rebuilt, Mr. Bonthron thought  it would be advisable to ascertain  what a fill could be made for. - As  near as he-could figure it out, the  fill would not cost over 82000, and  it would take fully that amount to  rebuild the trestle. In order that  a more accurate estimate".of the  cost of the fill be obtained, he suggested that tenders for the work he  called for. A great deal of the.work  .could be done this winter.  On motion of Aid. Bonthron and  Manly, the clerk was authorized to  thank Road Superintendent Spraggett for the use of the rock crushing  outfit.  ��������� -.On motion of Aid. Bonthron and  Manly, the clerk, was instructed to  advertise for tenders for a fill.at the  Winnipeg avenue crossing.  The city clerk submitted a detailed report of the proportionate  cost to the city and the property  owners for the construction ,of the.  cement eidewalks'on Miner and Ida  avenues, on tbe west side of Sixth  stieet, and for two or three new  plank walks.  The clerk was authorized to secure legal advise' regarding the correct interpretation of the .1914  amendment {- lo the Municipal  Clauses act respecting the qualification of municipal voters.  The council then adjourned till  Friday afternoon, when the ques  tion of sending a deputation to Vic  toria will be disposed of...-  E  S  (Special Correspondence of The Sun.)  Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Johnson paid  a visit to Grand Forks this week.  Frank McFarlane, the contractor,  was a visitor to Gloucester on Monday.

Five new cabins have been built*  in the vie nity of Gloucester this  fall by prospectors who will develop  their mining claims this winter.  That Franklin camp is rapidly recovering from the set-hack it received at the outbreak of the war is  evident from the fact that stage service to the camp, which was for a  shorty time laid off, has now been  resumed by Mr. Funkley, whose  stage now meets the Kettle Valley  train at Lynch Creek every Wednesday at 9-30a.m. for all points on  the North Fork.

The force in training, in Canada is  to be greatly . increased, and men  will be despatched as the war office  is able to handle them.  Ypres is violently shelled by the  enemy. Only tbe artillery is active  in Flanders and France, and the  troops get a rest.  The Swedish and Danish jeserv-  ists living in Canada are ordered to  report for duty at earliest possible  moment.  Tbe German troops are again approaching Warsaw, but the Russians  repulse attacks farther south.  Monday  The French artillery, well supported by the infantry, wins a nota  ble success. Lost positions are  speedily recovered, and Prussian  guns are taken. The allies prepare  to resist another effort by the foe to  force their way to Calais.

The* present world-wide  war started from the case of Servia,  but involved even from the start,  '.much'larger'issues. If only a dispute  between Servia and Austria-Hungary  had been in question, Britain, as Sir-  lid ward Grey repeatedly stated, would  have had no concern in tlie affair. But  since, as Ave shall .'see,.'this dispute  was bound to have ulterior, consequences, it is necessary to understand  what the dispute was about.  Servia is a small, but very ancient,  kingdom in the Balkan peninsula.  ,It  obtained considerable accesion of territory as the result of the recent wars  in the Balkans, the war between the  Balkan States and Turkey, aud then  the     war  among  the  Balkan  States  themselves.    The Servian people are  akin, in race and religion, to the Slavs,  .of which race Russia is the predominant power,  and  to which race    also  many of the subjects of Austria-Hungary belong.    On, June 2S, 1914, "the  crime at Serajevo"   was    committed,  namely, the murder of the heir-apparent to the throne of Austria-Hungary  and his consort in the capital of Bosnia.   That province, once a part of the  ancient  Servian kingdom, had fallen  into the possession of the Turks; the  administration of it had been given to  Austria, by the Berlin Treaty after the  Russo-Turkish  war,  in  1878;   and  in  1908 Austria had annexed it. The Austrian government alleged (but has not  proved)   that  the  crime  of ��������� Serajevo  was  a  culminating  point in  r.  "subversive movement" organized by the  Servian government "with the object  of detaching a part of the territories  of  Austria-Hungary  from '���������.". the   Monarchy."   On July 23 the Austrian.government  addressed  an  ultimatum  to  Servia.   Austria had been "left a perfectly free hand" by Germany. It was  admitted   by   Sir   Edward. Grey   that  ���������"one naturally sympathized with many  of the requirements of the ultimatum,"  and   that  "the  murder  of  the  Archduke and some of the circumstances  respecting Servia quoted in 'the (Austrian)   note aroused  sympathy,   with  Austria."   Russia  also  admitted   that  "the demands were reasonable enough  in some cases." But there were two  features   in   the  Austrian  ultimatum  which caused alarm and    regret    to  those  who desired  to see the  peace  of Europen maintained.   The first was  the inclusion of a time-limit,.so short  (forty-eight hours) as to leave diplomacy little time to avert war. The second was that What Austria demanded  within   48 hours was not a reply but  the reply dictated, by Austria: "I had  never before seen," said Sir Edward,  "one  state  address  to  another independent state a document of so formidable a character." The German foreign  secretary "admitted that the Servian  government could not swallow certain  of  the 'Austro-Hungarian    demands."  Sir Edward Grey advised Servia to go*  ever befallen tha continent of Europe  at cneblow; no one can say what  would be the limit of tho issues that  might be raised by such a conflict."  War between Russia and Austria, in a  cause wherein. Germany had supported  the latter must involve Germany as  her ally, and France would be drawn  in as the ally of Russia. The action -f  Austria and Germany in the case ol  Servia was thus likely to challenge a  European war. England and. France  and Russia saw this. Italy the ally of  Austria and Germany, saw i; also.  When the general war was breaking  out,   the   Italian   government, being  asked to state its intentions, replied:  "The war undertaken by Austria, and  the consequences which might result,  had, in the words cf the German ambassador himself, an aggressive object. Both were "therefore in conflict  with the purely defensive character of  the Triple Alliance, and in such circumstances, Italy would remain'r.eut-  ral." "We were fully conscious," said  the German government itself, "that a  possible warlike procedure by Austria-  Hungary against Servia might bring  Rr.ssia upon tiie scene arid so involve  us in war in accordance with our  duties as Allies." "As far Germany."-  said the German ambassador at Vienna to the British, "she knew very well  what she"was about in backing up Austria-Hungary in this matter.".; ��������� , '.  Foreseeing all this, Sir Edward  Grey, whose efforts during the recent  Balkan wars had won .or him the  title of' the Peacemaker of Europe,  was early in the field Avith proposal.;,  for averting "war,; and the British government "persisted to the very last  moment of the last hour in that great  and beneficient but unhappily frus'.-rated purpose" (Mr. Asquith).  Already on July 20, having receivr  ed an inkling of what was on foot, Sir  Edward Grey spoke "to the German  ambassador of the importance,'if the  peace of Europe was to be preserved,  of Austria "keeping her demand within reasonable limits." The suggestion  was not adopted. The German foreign  secretary "considered it inadvisable  that the Austro-Hungarian govern-,  ment should be approached "by the  German government on the matter"  (July 22). The Austrian ultimatum,  which the same minister "admitted  that the Servian, government could,  not swallow," was despatched on the  following day.  :On July 23, having heard from the  Austrian ambassador an. outline of  what the Austrian note contained, Sir  Edward Grey pressed upon 'him, as  also upon the uerman government,  the desirability of persuading the Austrian government to extend its time-  limit. The. Russian government took  the same line. The. German "ambassador was instructed to "pass on" Sir-  Edward Grey's suggestion, but the  German foreign secretary .said that  '���������"there would be delay and difficulty  in getting time-limit -extended," "adding, "quite freely, that the Austro-  Hungarian. government wished to give  the Servians a lesson and meant to  take military action."  On July 24, havng received the text  of the Austrian ultimatum, and foreseeing that if Austria attacked Servia,  Russia would mobilize, Sir Edward  Grey proposed that "Germany, France,  Italy and Great Britain, who had not  direct interests in Servia, should act  together for the sake of peace, simultaneously in Vienna and St.'-Petersburg,"--"in-the event of the relations  straint '(July 30), and accompanied  his refusal by yet.another "most earnest" appeal to tlie German chancellor:  "The one way of maintaining the good  relations between England and Germany is that they should continue to  work together to preserve the peace  of Europe; if we succeed in this object, the mutual relations of Germany  and England will, T believe, be ipso  facto improved and strengthened.

The Senrian government replied,  Avithin the appointed time, conceding  the greater part of the Austrian demands. The conceded demands Avere  of a very stringent character. The Servian reply "involved," said Sir Edward  Grey, "the greatest humiliation that  he had ever seen a country undergo."  Nevertheless, Austria refused to accept the reply, and declared Avar  against Servia July. 2S. The part of  the Austrian demands which Servia  had felt unable to concede touched her  very existence as an independent state,  and Avita regard to these matters she  offered to submit them to The Hague  Tribunal. The fact that Austria, Avhile  receiving satisfaction on the other  points, had made the refusal of the  latter points a casus belli raised suspicions of her ultimate intentions.  "The real question," said the Russian  foreign minister, "was whether Aus-  trix was o crush Servia and to reduce her to the status of a vassal, or  whether she Avas to leave Servia a  free and independent state."  It had been recognized from the first  that the case of Servia could not be  isolated. The aggression upon Servia  by Austria (with the previous consent  of Germany) was bound to involve  other powers.  The German government did indeed  protest to Sir Edward Grey that "the  question at issue was one for settlement between Servia and Austria  alone;" but ever; body else knew that  it could not be so, and the German  government, as we shall so presently,  seem to have known this also. The  relations between Austria and Russia  had already been strained by the Austrian annexation. of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Aggression by Austria upo.t  Ser*. ia was certain to be regarded by  Russia with the utmost alarm and i;i-  nignation. During tlie Balkan crisis  the Russian foreign minister "had  made it clear to the Austrian government that war with Russia must inevitably follow an Austrian attack on  Servia. It Avas clear that Austrian  dom ation of Servia was as intolerable for Russia as the dependence of  the Netherlands on Germany would ^e  to Great Briain." "It must bo obvious,"  said Sir EdAvard Grey in the house of  commons July 27, "to any person who  reflects upon the situation that the  piomcnt the dispute ceases to be one  between Austria-Hungary and Servia  and becomes one in which another  great power is involved, it can but end  in the greatest catastrophe that has  W. N. U. 1023  hreatening." "It would be very desiv  able," he said to the German ambassador, "o get Austria not to precipitate military action and so gain more  time. But none of us could influence  Austria in this direction unless" Germany would propose and participate  in such action at Vienna." France 'was  favorable to this plan. So was Italy.  Russia Avas "quite ready to stand aside  and leave the question in the hands  of England, France. Germany and  Italy." ��������� Having thus received assurances that, if only Germany agreed,  his plan might be efficacious, Sir Ed-  Avard Grey on July 2G formally invited  the governments of France, Germany  and Italy to instruct their severa1 ambassadors to confer with him "for the  purpose of discovering an issue Avhich  Avould prevent complications." The  invitation was accepted by France and  Italy. The Gentian foreign secretary  "could not fall in with the suggestion,  desirous though he was to co-operate  for the maintenance of peace" (July  27).  Sir Edward Grey thereupon saAV the  German ambassador (July 27) and  promised "as Ion;: as Germany would  work to keep the peace I. would keep  closely in touch. 1 repeated that after  the Servian reply it was at Vienna that!  some moderation must be urged." On *  tlie following day (July 28) Austrian-  Hungary declared war on Servia.  As the German government Avas understood to have accepted "in principle," tlie idea of mediation by tha  four powers betAveen Austria and Russia, it was,proposed "that, the Germa.i  secretary of state should suggf.st the  lines on Avliich this principle should  be applied." The German government  made no suggestion of the kind.  Sir Edward Grey's scheme had temporarily been in abeyance, as the Russian government had offered to discuss matters witli the Austrian government direct. This offer was declined by Austria. (July 28).  Sir EdAvard Grey next appealed to  the German chancellor. "If ho can  induce Austria to satisfy Russia and to  abstain from going so far as to come  into collision Avith her, Ave shall all  join in deep gratitude to his excellency  for having saved the peace of Europe"  (July 29). The Italian government had  simultaneously appealed to Germany  in a like sense.  On that same day the German government made certain proposals to  Great Britain to Avhich avo shall come  presently and which the prime minister afterwards characterised as "infamous." But so, persistent was the  British government In pursuit of peace  that Sir Edward Grey In declining the  proposals  used  language of great re-  t;lie could be assured  that no aggressive  or hostile  policy Avould  be ptir-  , sued'  against   her   or   her   allies     by  ; France, Russia and ourselves, jointly  i or separately."  I On the following clay (.1 u 1 y .", 1) Sir  I Edward Grey gave proof of his sin-  '.cerity and made a furiher effort for  peace. "I said to German ambassador  this morning that if Germany*could  get any reasonable proposal put forward Avhich made it clear that Germany 'and Austria Avere striving to preserve-European peace, and that Russia and France Avould beunreas'dnanle  if they rejected it, I Avould support it  at St." Petersburg and Paris, and go  the length of saying that if Russia and  France would not accept it his majesty's government would., have nothing  more to do Avith the consequences." In  order not to leave this promise in the  region of generalities, Sir Edward  Grey','threw.- out a- particular sugges-  t tion. "The stumbling-block hitherto  (has been Austrian mistrust of Servian assurances/ and Russian mistrust  of Austrian intentions with regard lo  the independence and integrity of.Servia." If Germany Avould sound Vienna, Sir Edward would sound St.  Petersburg Avhether it would be possible for the four disinterested poav-  ers to offer to Austria to undertaae  to see that she obtained full satisfaction for her demands on Servip, provided they did not impair Servian_  sovereignty and. the integrity of Servian territory. That Russia Avas ready  to accept such a solution is clear  from a peace-formula Avhich her government had ��������� drawn up iu concert  Avith-" Sir Edward. Grey. Everything  turned on Germany.; On that day she  sent an; ultimatum to Russia.  In the early morning of August ,1  (3.30 a.m.) the King of England and  his ministers made a last attempt to  secure peace. The king telegraphed  a personal message to the Tsar. In  this the king first set - out the text  of a communication from the German government. The Tsar had previously requested the German empercr  to mediate between Russia and Austria, and had "given most categorical  assurances to the Emperor William  th at: Russian troops wouId not mo ve  so long as mediation negotiations  continued." The German government  in its communication stated that the  emperor Avas desirous to mediate and  complained that such mediation was  frustrated by the Russian mobilization. King George went on to say  that he was "mo3f. anxious not to mies  any possibility of avoidiiig the terrible  calamity Avhich threatens the w'to.c  Avorld;" he appealed to the Tsar to  remove any misapprehension which  might have occurred; he proffered his  good offices: "to assist in reopening the  interrupted conversations between  ���������the poAvers concerned." The Tsar replied on the same day, "I would gladly  have accepted, your proposals had not  the German ambassador this afternoon presented a note to my government declaring Avar."

"*"*  Although the finest apples in- the  world are produced in ,this country,  i many Canadians have had to content  themselves in previous yean avJUi apples imported from the united States,  This was due to i the fact that Euv-  ppc, appreciating'the quality of Canadian apples, imported them in very  considerable quantities. .The" exports  of Canadian apples to the United  Kingdom have been running 1,500,000  barrels a year. In addition, 75 per  cent. of all the apples evaporated  have been exported to Germany,  Austria-Hungary and other countries  in continental Europe.  The war has resulted in a curtailment of the market for Canadian-apples in Great Britain. It has also resulted in jeopardizing for this year  the trade in evaporated apples  continental Europe, for Germany  the clearing house for most of  trade.  -  In view of these conditions the department of trade and commerce as  a general effort to assist in creating-  new -sources of demand to replace  those cut off by the war, has been  seeking to devise some means of assisting Canadian apple growers in.  quickly changing the market for Canadian' apples from export to domestic channels. In order to effect-tbe  change in the quickest possible way,  the minister of trade and commerce,  Sir George E.

It  is  estimated    there  I are-now    over- 8,500,000    men  under  1 arms  for land  warfare,    with :M0,000  j seamen.    If the Balkan Avar is to be  j taken as an example, the cost for each  I man mobilized amounts to $2.50 a day.  | This gives about $^2,000,000 daily, or  I $(160,000,000 monhly, or for six months  ' $4:j,!160,000,000.   ���������  But this figure, says Gen. Guyot,  does not include the cost of maintaining the armies and the fleets. On  August 4, the day the ultimatum was  sent by Great Britain demanding the  1 assurance that the neutrality of Bel-  I giuin would be respected, followed at  111 p.m., by Germany's declaration of  ; war aaginst Great Britain, the German Reichstag authorized extraordinary credits of $2,250,000,000 to be ob-  . tained by a loan and a further sum cf  i seventy million dollars to be drawn on  j the gold and silver supply of the em-  i pire. A tax of five per cent, on stocks  ' and notes issued by the bank over and  above its reserve and metal, was subsequently announced and the loan secured by an issue of bank notes uncovered by a reserve of gold and silver.  1 It has been stated in Vienna that  the Austrian army costs $4,000,000  daily. The Austrian treasury Avas  strained by mobilizatipn during the  Balkan Avars, which drained the financial resources of the empire for more  than a year, and it is hard to see  where the -Austrian monarchy can  have found the $120,000,000 required  to "keep up lier army and fleet, as no  news of fresh financial arrangements  has been received.  Humbug  It is not generally known that'thi*  Avord, long .so much in .'vogue, is of  Scottish origin. There was in oldes  times a race called Bogue or Boag ot  that ilk in BerAvickshire. A daughter  of the family married a son of Hum������  of.Hume. In process of time, by default of male issue, the Bogue estate  devolved on one Geordie Hume, who  was called popularly "Hume o' the  Bogue," or rather, "Hum o' the Bug.*"  lie Avas inclined to the marvelous,  and had a' vast, inclination to exalt  himself, his wife, family, brother and  all his ancestors on both sides. His  tales, however, did not pass current,  and at last, when anyone made an extraordinary statement in the Nearns,  the hearer would shrug up his shoulders, and style it just "A hum o' the  bug." This was shortened into humbug and the word soon spread over  the whole kingdom.  ' Willie���������Paw,   are   a   man   and   his  wH'e  one?  PaAV���������Yes, my son.

The train shed, which  is just completed, is one of the largest  of the most modern types now in use.  At the same'time the improvements  at Place "Viger, which have been in  hand for three years, are now completed. These, in their entirety, of  station, hotel and trackage, cost nearly '$5,000,000.'   -     *���������    ���������  The union station at Quebec has  been commenced.

To Cure Common   Ailments  the Blood Must be Made  Rich and   Red  Nearly all the diseases that afflict  humanity are caused'by bad blood���������  weak, watery blood poisoned by impurities. Bad blood is the cause of  headaches and backaches, lumbago  and rheumatism; delibility and indigestion, neuralgia and"other nerve  troubles, and disfiguring skin diseases like eczema and salt rheum  show how impure the blood actually  is. No use trying a different remedy  for each disease, because they all  spring from the one cause���������bad  blood. To cure any of these troubles  you .must get right down to the root  of the trouble in the blood, and that  -is just what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  do. They make new, rich' blood and  thus cure these diseases when common medicine fails. Mrs. John Jackson, Woodstock, Ont., suffered from  botli nervous troubles and a run  down condition and experienced a  complete cure through the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills: She says: "I  was a sufferer for a number of years  from neuralgia and a general debility of the nerves and system. 1 had  tried several doctors and many medicines but to no avail until I began  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.- At the time  I began the Pills I had grown so bad  that I could'hardly be .on my feet  and was forced to wear elastic bandages about the ankles. The pain I  suffered at times from the neuralgia  was terrible. I "had almost given up-  hope when I began the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. In the course  of a few weeks I felt an improvement, and I gladly continued the use  of the Pills until I was once more  quite well and able to attend to all  my household duties."

The Bear That Got Away  Your'true hunter reckons not the  hardships of the trail. He welcomes  them. They increase'his joy. Even  disappointments have a certain fascination. He tells you with great gusto  of the deer he didn't'kill, and includes  the Incident in the story he sends to  his favorite outdoor magazine. Consider the following paragraph, taken  from an account of a bear hunt:  "While putting the dogs into the  brush at the bottom of a gulch, some,;,  tiling attracted my attention .up the  mountain side on the rocks. I looked  up and beheld a fine little brown bear  gazing down upon us. 1 threw my gun  to my shoulder and fired, but an instant late, for just as I pulled tho  trigger he dropped out of sight behind  the rocks. The dogs saw him, however, and the chase was on. Mr. Bear  turned into the brush and clown th''  gulch he came, with both clogs close  at Iiis heels. Close to the Ranchcjr  they crashed through tlie thick under,-  growth���������so thick that it was difficult  to determine which was bear and  which was dog.. The Rancher got in  several shots, but with no effect. Down  the mountain we ran, clogs and bear  in the lead, everybody yelling to encourage the dogs and in the hope of  scaring the bear up a tree. Breathless  and weary, we finally got to the .dogs,  who were lying clown under a tree,  "all in' and no bear in sight. His pace  had been too hot for our unhardened  pups and he had escaped." (Now hear  the conclusion of the matter). "It was  the Rancher's first bear and he was  -much, disappointed not to get him. We  were'all agreed that it was tho best  sport that we had had in a long time,  hence  were  pretty well satisfied."  It was "the Rancher's first bear,"  even though it escaped. There spoke  the true hunter.  s     A  Little Stretched  While visiting a nephew in London,  Uncle Hayseed stopped in front of.a  "movie" theatre poster on which were  displayed pictures of lions, tigers, elephants and other African, wild animals.  "Great guns, Henry!" he said to ,'iis  nephew, "I'm mighty glad to leave  town Saturday afternoon." ���������  "Why are you so anxious to get  away?" asked the nephew.  Pointing to the poster on the wall  Uncle Hayseed read aloud the words:  "To be released on Monday."  Nothing as Go.od For Asthma.

The Essential  The Sunday School teacher was  talking to her pupiis on patience.  She explained her topic carefully,  and, as an aid to understanding, she  gave each pupil a card bearing the  picture of a boy fishing.  "Even pleasure," she said, "requires the exercise of patience. See  the boy fishing. He must sit and  wait and -wait.   Pie must be patient.'  Having treated the subject very  fully she began ..with tlie simpliest,  most practical question:  "And now, can any little boy tell  me what we need most when we go  fishing?"  The answer was quickly shouted  with one voice: "Bait!"  Minard's Liniment Relieves Neural  gia.  W. N.

In Brit  ish Columbia   the government   has  squandeted   the'  people's   heritage  with   the same   prodigality, but up  to the present time the electors have  manifested   no   disapproval of this  lavish treatment of the inteiests and  the land grabbers ,  It requires as much courage to iv-  main at home and to do everything  in one's power to maintain condi  tions at a normal state as it di es lo  fight in tbe trenches on the battlefield.

It is our opinion  tl at the man who starts a move  merit of this nature in-that country  at present will soon be without a  had.

There  is no more need of a general election  at the present time than there was  at. the outbreak of the war.  their desire for the amber fluid tbey  imported    twenty four   cases   from  England in 1875, storing half  of  it  suBBOBiPTioN katbs : { at their store in   ICerenieos,   and the  Xear $1.50  balance   underneath   the    shop, at  'Rock Creek One fi< e morning the  judge he<ird a greatcn-sh, and making his way to tbe cellar he found  that owing to the rotten condition  of the uprights the shelves had given  way, flooding tbe place with ale and  broken bottles. Only six bottles  were saved intact. This wns* a sad  sight for the judge and his partner.  But let us draw a veil over that calamity of the. early days.  A  man   with  a  lantern was sent  into the cellar to carry out the dead  marines,    out   in    n^vv    posts  nnd  shelves, and sprinkle the floor  with  Florida    water.     While   digging   a  hole for a new po*������t he saw gold glittering   in    the   light of the lantern.  He took a'handful':)nd showed it to  the judge.     Mr. Nicholson   filled   a  pan with.the dirt, carrying   <he ye'-  low stuff and wished it in Ihe creek.  That    was    the    richest pan of gold  ever panned in Rock Creek.  It went  8857 to the one   p>m. - The   China  men   standing  around   became <-x  cited and obtaining p-rmission they  cleaned    up   the   cellar and secured  $150.    Pieces   of   lotten   buckskin  proved that the find was a forgotten  cache.    The gold was different from  that found   along   Rock   Creek and  evidently   had   come   from Idaho.

Boundary Ancient History  More than fifty years ago a placer  miner built a very substantial cabin  near the mouth of Rock Creek.    He  made adobe bricks and built a chimney with two fireplaces.    The work  was well done,   and  the  prospector  had evidently learned the   bricklay  ing   trade.    He also   built a large  cellar underneath the building,   tor  years the building  was   used   as   a  store.    One   night   it burned down  all but the chimney.    This was left  standing, and as the fire had changed  the adobe   into real  bricks, a new  building   was   built  around and to  the   standing   chiuuuey.    In" 1873  Price  & Nicholson   kept a store in  this  building,   selling  all  kinds of  goods for fur and gold   dust.   They  continually packed goods from June  to   November over the Hope trail.  Price was fond of Bass' ale,  and so  An effort is   being   made' bv   the  citizens   ot   Phoenix   to  induce the  Granby     company   to   operate   its  mines and smelter in the   Boundary  On a small scale during  the coming  winter in order to  furnish  work for  some of the unemployed in this district,   and   this week a  deputation  from that town is having  a   confer  ence on the subject with the officials  of   the     company   at    Vancouver.  Whether  or  not the  company resumes operations  in this district at  an   early   date  will depend entirely  on   the  conclusion  reached   at that  conference.     It is said that the Phoenix delegation is   urging   the   company   to   blow  in thMe or four furnaces.    This   would   give   employment   to   the   married  miners and  8meltermen in Phoenix   and   Grand  Forks.    It   is  stated that   the New  York   directors   are   not   averse to  keeping  their Boundary   properties  in operation, provided the   manage  ment can do so without entailing  a  loss to the company.

Hm  Order at Once  Irand Forks Sun  Coincident with a declaration in  she British house of commons made  last week that copper is an absolute  contraband of war, it is possible that  not only the great.copper producing  companies of the United States will  be forced to close until either the  war is over or the embargo is raised,  but that also the copper producers  of Canada, particularly British Columbia, will undergo an enforced  idleness.  The pronouncement-, made last  week as far it affects the copper in  tereats ifi the United States means a  reduction* of 800,000,000 pounds of  the metal annually, and a loss of  $144,000,000 each year the embargo  exists. This is according to an  American estimate made last Saturday. '  Copper .properties in the United  States in many places are operating  under half capacity. The present  war price of copper is less than 12  cents, as against 15 cents one year  ago.  The greatest copper producer in  Canada is the Granby . Consolidated  Miniug.Smelting & Power company,  which was forced to shut down us  Grand Forks plant immediately  after war was declared, its northern  holdings are still in operation, and  according to F. M. Sylvester,'general manager, with offices in the  Birks building, Vancouver, there is  a chance that the company will be  obliged to curtail if the present price  is maintained, and if the embargo  centinues.  "It is our hope and intention to  keep going,'1 .says Mr. Sylvester.  "We woeld regret to be forced to  shut down.- : Certain conditions, of  course, might- force ���������,this upon us.  There is a. certain price at which  copper can not be mined and sold,  and added to that a restriction of  market would mean the inevitable.  "We have 800 men on our payroll, and we have not as yet reduced  the wages of these men, although  every salaried employee, those paid  monthly, have had their cheques  cut from fop to bottym.  "The situation, although not at  this time encouraging, may change.  We are looking forward to a change  for the better, so that we may not  have to shut down or reduce wages  further.

KAVANAGH & McClTCHEON  WINNIPEG AVENDB  The Seedless Tomato  "Doty's Navel Tomato" promises  to be a valuable addition to our list  of vegetables, A. J. Doty, an enthusiastic amateur plant breeder and  horticulturist of Porterville, Cal.,  having evolved a tomato of extreme  size, which is to the usual vegetable  what the navel orange is to the ordi-'  nary fruit. The resemblance is  borne out by the navel formation at  the blossom end of the fruit, where  the navel characteristics appear.  In common with the navel orange,  the new tomato ia almost entirely  seedless, the usual seed pulp being  replaced by solid flesh.  Mr. Doty was at work on the tomato for several seasons before he  secured tbe production of them true  to type from season to season. The  inexplicable characteristic of the  fruit is found in the fact that the  early tomatoes from the vines contain seeds, but after the first few  riperi the remaining ones are absolutely without seeds. The value of  these tomatoes for packing is obvious.    The young fool is not excusable  on the ground that there is no fool  like an old fool.

It has been stated that, a  frog will snap' at any small moving  object regardless' of its character and  of hunger or .satiety. Some experiments seem lo indicate that the frog  is capable of greater discrimination  than has been credited to him. Thus,  for example, a frog was offered hairy  caterpillars, which it promptly seized  and irith equal promptness spat out i  again. But after about from four <to J  seven such injudicious attempt the  frog had learned his lesson, and thereafter refused similar fare.*:In another  experiment earthworms were so connected with; a source pf electricity  that the frog received a shock on  touching the worm. The frog duly devoured the prey and showed no sighs  of discomfort. However, he refused  for seven days to touch another  species.of worms. Similarly the frog  could be taught to avoid vorms on  which oil of cloves or aclcium chloride  had been spread, although such "doctored" prey was not spit out, but only  digested. ������������������,  Use of Rubber  in   Mending  Body  When tissues or organs of the body  are damaged and living grafts are  not available for repairs, inert substances are sometimes introduced to  replace bone, cartilage or* fat. Silver  lias proven a very valuable material  supplied by the metals, and paraffin  has. been found suitable for certain  applications.  The use of rubber for internal  mending is a quite recent subject of  experiment. About five years ago Dr.  Sullivan,- an American physician,  showed that the bileduct could be replaced with a rubber tube, and since  then sheet rubber has been successfully tried for such purposes as closing the aperture in a damaged blood  vessel and repairing the torn abdominal wall of a hernia victim. The  rubber patches tend to become covered .with''living tissue after a few  months.  "./.-  The ..-latest idea is that of Fieschi,  the Italian surgeon, who replaces lost  substance with porous sponge of rubber, into 'which living cells penetrate,  and thus build up new tissue. A tampon of rubber sponge effectively closed the aperture in two operations for  hernia of the thigh.  It-Testifies.For Itself.���������Dr. Thomas'  Eclectric Oil needs no testimonial of  its powers other than itself. Whoever  tries it for coughs or colds, for cuts  or contusions, for sprains or burns,  for pains in the limbs or body, well  know that the medicine proves itself  and needs no guarantee. This shows  why this Oil is in general use.  Transmission of Sound Through Water  Sound is transmitted through water  faster than through air aud far more  accurately, both as to direction and  volume. Submarine signals have been  employed in various forms for the  purpose of preventing collisions of  vessels at sea. A new-type of warning device has been perfected, to be  used under water, in the form of an  electric oscillator or vibrator. This is  attached to the inner side of the vessel's hull and is capable"of transmitting a note through the water, a distance of more than 25 miles.  The sound waves are produced in  the oscillator by the vibration of a  diaphragm, which obtains its motion  from electrical impulses induced in a  cylinder of copper inside a casing,  suspended in an electromagnet. .The  sounds are received by a similarly  constructed .mechanism of reverse  action. In making tests of the machine, a song from a talking machine  record was plainly heard, in a tank:  of water located a good distance from,;  the source. It is said that the echo  which is returned to the ship from an  iceberg or other object can be utilized to prevent disasters.  !������g������  I/linard's Liniment'Cures Burns, etc.  Good Enough  "Hallo, kiddy," said little Jennie's  uncle, as he met her going to school.

Pnnce   of  Wales'   Motto  According to a press correspondent,  Welshmen have a theory abcut "Ich  Dien," based on a tradition that at  his birth which took place at Carnarvon- Edward II. y/a'-j presented, in  the arms of a nurse, to a gathering of  Welsh chieftains.  His father, Edward I., pointing lo  the baby,- is said to have exclaimed,  "Eich dyn," the Welsh for "Your  man."  The pronunciation of this Welsh  phrase is the same as "Ich dien," to  which it has, it is suggested, been  corrupted since.  Remembering that this baby was  the first English Prince of Wales, the  Welsh explanation of "Ich dien" is  not unreasonable, however, it may  strike at the roots of the historical  derivation, from the arms of the blind  King of Bavaria, defeated in battle  by a former famous Prince of Wales.

The Scotsman ventured no reply;  but when on the second green the  Englishman repeated his former-question, and made inquiry as to the number of strokes taken by his opponent,  the latter nodded his head, and, with  an expression of infinite wisdom on  his face, gently murmured:  "Nay, nay, my mannie; this time  it's my turn to ask first."

At a trial in Baltimore he summoned as a witness a  youthful physician, and naturally in  the cross-examination he seized the  occasion to be sarcastic. "Are you,"  demanded the lawyer, 'entirely familiar with the symptoms of concussion of the brain?" The young physician replied, "Yes, sir, I am." Then  tlie smart lawyer put a hypothetical  case before the doctor, in this way:  "If my learned friend, Mr. Reid, and  myself should bang our heads together, would we get concussion of  the brain?"

"There are two methods of making warfare" says General Joft'ro.  "One is to employ troops in masses and the other is to fight in extended"  order. The former is the German method. It is immensely costly in life,  but our opponents can afford it for- two reasons, namely, their immense  superiority of numbers, and the fact that their men are so disciplined  to mechanical obedience that they fight best when closely held together under the personal command of their officers. In other words, the  generalship of the French and British allies is to save the lives of the  men under command as far as possible, whereas the generalship of the  Germans is to sacrifice life ad libitum, in victory or defeat.

As they emerged our  boys met them withu a ��������� raking rifle  fire, which mowed them down. On  thoy came again and again with the  same devastating result. Their bullets  came whistling around us, but we  were indifferent, the markmanship being very poor. The German infantry,  carry their rifles under, their arms,  the" butts resting on their hips, and  they fii-d as they march. As the enemy  poured out en masse into the open It  was like the exodus from the Celtic  and Rangers Scottish Cup final! Man,  if they were only three to one we  could go through them easily, but  when it comes to 10 to one strategy  as well as bravery has to be considered. '  A favorite position for the enemy  to take up is behind massed stooks of  grain, where they are unseen. At  night time they advance to new points  of attack, and c.3 soon as daylight  breaks, their fusillade of heavy firing  is renewed. Many of the Germans,  when captured, present a pitiful spectacle, and frequently drop on. their  knees beseeching mercy. The British  regiments, as they pass through the  French and Belgian towns are everywhere received with marked hospitality, little children even rushing forward to1 kiss the hands of the sold**  iers.  Sir Robert Edgecumbe, of Newquay,  has received a letter from his son,  Lieutenant O. P. Edgecumbe, 1st Battalion D.C.L.I., serving on the staff of  General Halting, in which the following passages occur:  For the last week, or 10 clays vwe  have been fighting hard-, and are now  for one day resting. Altogether during  five days and five' nights ��������� I got six  hours' sleep,.and so am rather weary.  However, bullets and a real enemy  are a wonderful stimulant, and I feel  as fit as anything. All our men are  somewhat fatigued, but are very keen  and full of fight.  My regiment has had a bad time,  and I am dreadfully afraid they have  been badly cut up, although-I can as  yet get no details. They were caught  in a village'by Germans in the houses,  who had managed to get .there by  wearing our' uniforms. Never again  shall I respect the Germans. Thoy  have no code of honor, and there  have been several cases of their wearing French and British uniforms,  which is, of course, against the Geneva convention.  INCREASING   LIVE   STOCK  Farmers Should  Devote  More Attention to Live Stock to Meet Increasing  Demand  The outbreak of the war in Europe  and the consequent demand which is  naturally to. be expected for increased  exports of meats, finds Canada in a  very much denuded condition as regards live stock.  As a "result of the removal of the  American tariff on cattle-a heavy export trade developed to the south. In  some districts - in Eastern Canada,  nearly everything has .been' shipped  out of the country, except dairy cows.  This export trade, together with many  farmers selling their calves for veal,  can have but one result in Canada,  viz.: a greater'scarcity of meat than  at present exists, even in a t normal  market. ���������������������������;. /-'  The meat industry in Canada should  not be allowed to dwindle���������-rather, the  production of hogs, sheep and cattle  on Canadian farms should be greatly  increased. To obtain this increase  does not mean that'farmers should devote their whole attention to live  stock. The majority of farmers will  admit that with very little extra effort and-expense thety could increase  by several head the live stock on  their farms without in any way interfering with their, present system of  farming.  From reports to the commission of  conservation, presentr conditions indicate a world-wide^scarcity. of live  stock, with' little likelihood of an  over-crowded' market for many years  to come. The opportunity for Canadian farmers is, therefore, apparent.' To  take advantage of this, farmers should  save their heifer calves to produce  more cattle, while the others may be  turned off, not as veal but as beef.  Expert stockmen advise that there  are good -times ahead foi* those raising sheep. The high price of mutton  and of wool and the comparative ease  with which a flock of sheep may be  sustained upon land which is otherwise unsuitable for agriculture, should  suggest a great increase in the number of sheep raised by Canadian farmers.  Increased production in hogs can be  brought about more quickly than in  any other class of live stock, and  consequently should receive immediate attention.  Animal production on the farm is  desirable because it increases the fertility and crop-raising ability of the  soil. .Good prices are sure to be obtained for any surplus which farmers  will have to sell on account of the inevitable shortage of supply resulting  from war conditions in ������������������Europe. These  two conditions should be an incentive  to Canadian farmers to increase their  live stock' production. A little foresight now, with modern methods of  feeding, will make increased production easily possible.���������F.C.N.  ****l  if  GERMAN SUBJECTS ARE GREATLY  NG  KEP"T IN IGNORANCE OF TRUE STATE OF AFFAIRS  TAKES   WIDER   AUTHORITY-  May Control Telegraph and Telephone  Lines���������Other  Stringent  Orders  Au order-in-council has been passed  under the war measures act of the : e-  cent session, empowering.the government, if deemed necessary, to take  over and operate any telephone or  telegraph lines in Canada, .and providing authority for a strict' censorship  of all telegraphic or telephonic communications. The order provides that  any cabinet minister/ delegated tor  the purpose, may ��������� assume control of  any telegraph or telephone company,  and use its lines for his majesty's service.

Another order-in-council provides  similar' penalties   for   furniohin.;     to  ",The Bravest of the Brave"  , The Victoria Cross, the supremist  British reward for valor of whicli  many will doubtless be won during  the present campaign, is the youngest of such decorations, only dating  back to the Crimean War in .1856. It  is the most valued possession in  many a home in Britain today. The  Austrian Cross, on the other hand, is  the oldest.  A similar reward in Germany is the  lron_Cross, instituted by the Emperof  Frederick William III: of Prussia in  the year 1813. Russia gives as a decoration to its heroic soldiers the Cross  of St. George, ��������� Avhich was founded by  the famous Empress Catherine II. in  the year 1769, and, while the Victoria  Ci'oes is of bronze, and the Iron Cross  as its name implies, of iron (which r-  edged with silver), the Russian Ord^r  is of gold, with a. beautifulmedallion  of St. George, killing the dragon.  In Austria, again, the cross is of  gold, and was instituted in the year  1757 by the Empress Marie Theresa  soon after her accession to the  Throne. It bears the same inscrip-  the enemy informatiou. plans, photo-j tion as the British Victoria Cross  graphs, etc., likely to be c? military ours haying in English For Valor,"  use, or for furnishing Intoxicating | and theirs m Latin the word 'For  liquor to anyone on military duty. titudlni.  J The Order of the Legion of Honor,  which is the .reward in France, was  instituted by te great Napoleon, and  he decreed that every soldier who  was decorated with that honor should  have tho additional distinction of being entitled to receive a military salute from officers, non-commissioned  officers, and private soldiers.  It is difficult to estimate correctly  the actual war strength of Great Britain, on account of the loyalty and  readiness to serve of her civilian  population. The adaptability of  British men to any sort of armed  service is always a marvel to foreigners, and comes, uo doubt, in part  from the national love of sport.  With the declaration of war on  England, the Royal Aero Club issued  a call to every licensed pilot in the  kingdom to register for service with  the British air forces. Virtually all  responded, those owning -machines  tendering these as well.  When it is recalled that the Royal  Aero Club, up to July 15,' issued  860 certificates, -one may comprehend the value of Britain's late insistence on aviation. A large part  of this number is already in the service, perhaps 500 in all.  As the war is likely to prove an  extended one, this civilian reserve is  going to be of the utmost value as  time will be afforded these men lo  become proficient for field service.  Thus a large gap, due to England's  losses in the conflict in the air, can  be filled.  To Protect the Birdc '  "To hunt birds without a gun or  sling shot," is the ideal kept constantly before the members of the Farm  Journal Liberty Bell Bird Club, who  sign a pledge; to protect all song and  insectivorous birds. If it happens  that a newly enrolled member "avats"  to the savage instinct of his primitive  forefathers when he sees a bird within shot and brings it fluttering to his  feet, his fellow members with literature, arguments and personal persuasion try to-.show him the evil of his  ways and bring him back into the  folds of the merciful. If he refuses to  reform and continues to violate his  pledge his name is at last stricken  "from the membership list and he...  sent to Coventry by his comrades  pledged to save the birds, and through  them, save the crops from being devoured by insect pests.  Sunday schools in many districts  are finding new ways to teach humane  principles to their pupils by having  them enroll as members of the Liberty  Bell Bird Club, are of the Farm Journal, in Philadelphia, Pa. Its banner  and pledge are kept before the  classes, its educational pamphlets and  wall cards are used to encourage the  children to study and protect the  birds, and so lead them towards being .;inder and more considerate of  each other.  Sabbath school classes in different  parts of the country report most, interesting "Bird Evenings" where bird  songs, recitations, essays and little  plays are given. Sunday school superintendents are calling the attention  of their teachers to this effective helper for creating a greater interest and  larger attendance in Sunday school  classes.  There is no cost in joining the  club, no fees, no duos or assessments  of any kind. Any person who signs  the club pledge:  "I desire to become a member of  the ��������� Liber;y Bell Bird Club of the  Farm Journal, and I promise to study  and protect all song and insectivorous  birds and do what I can for the club,"  will receive a club badge button free  of charge.  Through the Censorship of the German Press as well as  Misrep.  rcscntation on the Part of German Officialdom, the People  of Germany are Kept in the Dark  From time to time we read extracts  from the German newspapers, as well  as wireless despatches from that country, showing how the German people  are kept in complete ignorance of the  true condition of affairs regarding the  progress of the war. It would appear  that even the educated and best informed of the more intelligent class cf  the German people have been deceived by the Kaiser, and the military  party, .by misrepresentations of ..the  official correspondence between the  nations previous to the declaration of  war. The German people are evidently led to' believe that Great Britain  was responsible for the war, and that  since the commencement of hostilities  German arms have been invariably  successful against the allied troops.  They even appear to have supreme  confidence in their navy, and entertain  the delusion that the.Brltislrnavy will  be vanquished by their own fleet;  Through the'" censorship of news by  the authorities in Germany,. and by  means of spreading false reports  broadcast, they are doing everything  possible to prejudice.the opinion of  neiitral countries. .Letters are now  being received in Canada mailed from  points in the United States, and no  doubt written by agents of Germany,  which contain statements bearing on  the cause and progress of the war,  calculated to arouse an Anti-British  feeling. These letters in most cases  are being sent to the proper authorities, so' that this plan of campaign  may be exposed. -. .  As showing the manner in which the  German people are kept in the dark  as to the true conditions of affairs in  respect to the war, situation, the following letter, written by a Berlin  newspaper owner to a friend in England, is illuminating: ���������  "Never in my life I shouldhave ventured to think that Great . Britain  should ever declare war on Germany,  the nation to - which the British had  the closest affinity, there being thousands and thousands of friendly and  amicable relations between the inhabitants of the two countries.. The official publication of the telegrams exchanged between the three sovereigns  has proved beyond any doubt that Germany up to the last moment has extended her sincere desire to preserve  the peace. True, its situation between  two enemies who were at all .'times  jealous of her development has .forced  her to keep vigilant watch and'to prepare for a fight should it be provoked  by her neighbors. Now the war has  come, abrupty and unexpectedly-and  since it has come without any intelligent reason, merely because the Russians believed the time ripe for th<;  crushing of their civilized neighbor,  the whole German nation has risen,  as one man, to fight for our independence and our standing in the rank of  the great powers. There are no more  parties. in our empire;    the    Social-  democrats have, just as well as tha  Alsacians and Polish in our boundaries, unanimously voted for the enormous sums deemed' necessary, each  and every one has taken up the arms,  and now there are millions of good  soldiers.at our frontiers, eager to face  the enemy wherever he may appear.  The Russians, whose millions of soldiers were expected to flood over our  eastern provinces, have cowardly lied  wherever they met only a handful of  German ana Austrian soldiers, and' it  is safe to predict that our troops will  continue to chase them as far as w������  choose, and whatever���������'��������� there exists of  the Russian fleet will soon be doomede  or, if .considered fit for the purpose,  > rry the German flag. And the  French? We have permitted them to  ..enter into Alsace, just as we. allowed  the Russians to pass over our frontier  for a couple of miles���������for the simple  reason that the fact be established  that, they, not the Germans, -were the  aggressors in l'u'3 disastrous international war. But in the meantime, we  have proven that German valiance and  courage is the same as 1870, and tho  Belgians, who have been badly advis*  ed that their country should be neutralized towards Germany, but open to  British and French manoeuvres, have  been shamefully deserte-" by their advisers and are now the first to feel tha  weight of German strategy. Liege, tha  strongest fortress built by French en������  gineers, has been conquered by ordinary field troops at one assault, its  x* -*ong forts have been reduced to cinders by our heavy guns, Brussels has  been occupied and soon the last cor������  ner of" Belgium will be in German  possession, after which our invasion  into France will be taken up with  force-, with which even the combined  French and Brtish armies cannot  rival. ..',..:���������...  "It is a- pity that it has come so far,  and the British people should, er--* it ia  too late, consider what is at stake. As  far as.we hear, British newspapers  persistently belittle the German sue-* '  cesses and continue to circulate news  of German defeats which have never  happened so far, and thus they betray  their readers, delude them into the  dangerous^ idea that Great Britain,  were invincible because of its splendid  isolation at sea. Still, the vast British fleet has, as far as .we know, up  to this hour not dared to'approach our  coast, but prefers to do the safe busi-  euss of piracy. I do not believe that  our navy will follow this policy ot  apparent cowardness, but will before  long visit the British coast and hunt  the British vessels, and the result will  be that the fiction of the British  navy's supremacy will go to the doga.  "If I knew that this letter safely  reached your hands, 1 will gladly continue to tell you what news our papers publish of the war, and should  be much pleased if you would be kind  enough to reciprocate."

INDUSTRIAL CONDITIONS BETTER  Canning Factories Will Employ More  Canadian Help  Industrial conditions in Canada at  this  time will result in the employment of many more Canadians  than  usual in the canning factories of tha  Dominion.   In previous seasons many  canning factories, finding difficulty ia  obtaining sufficient local help, secured assistance from the larger labor  market of the United States. It is estimated that several    thousand    employ oes of Canadian canning factories  during previous seasons were not per-  manent residents of this country.   In  view of the unemployment in some in-  j dustries at this time the canning tac-  I tories will be able to secure in Canada  ! most, if not all, the help they require  | this   season.    Thus  many Canadians  ] who would otherwise be out of employ-  J inent will have the work in the can-  I ning factories that in previous years  was given to parties who were resident in Canada only during the canning season.
