C.^FIUDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1910  $1.00 PER YEAR  -     The public meeting in the Empress  . thea'tre last Monday-night, at which  addresses   were   delivered    by   Sir  Herbert   Ames,   honorary ' secretary  - of the Canadian Patriotic  fund, and  Mr. Fred   Nation, of   Victoria, pro  vincial   secretary   of   the fund, was  not as largely attended - as   the .importance   of   the  subject discussed  " called "for. Judge J. R Brown  acted as chairman, and introduced  the speakers in brief but approptiate  - speeches.  i'  Mr. Fred Nation, secretary ot*   the  provincial branch of  the fund, said:  That owing to the  continued-jin  ��������� crease   in    the   demand   upon   the  t.und, owing   to the large   additions  made to our army, it hat* been   necessary to inaugurate a cami.aigu f r  tbe purpose of raising an additional  amount,   over   and   above the sum  raised during the   past  year of   at  least 50 percent to provide   for  the  requirements for' the   third'year  of.  th'e.war.  Up to the 31st  of   August, 1915,  which covers  the. first' twenty.-four  months   of   the  Canadian Patriotic  fund's existence,  the  total   receipts  -in Canada amounted to.813,893,586,  exclusive of the province   of   Manitoba, which is a separate   organiza  tion, working in harmony with   the  general fuud. In that province they  rai-ed Sl.oOO.OUO making   total   re  eeipts for the general and -Manitoba  . fund in "excess of 8 f5,000,000     The  total disbursements during thesame  peiiod    by    the   general   fund   was  ���������510,760,157,    while    Manitoba   dis  ���������nursed, iu ruundtigures,8l,oOO,000,  the balance on hand   being  S3,183,  439.    Tne demands made upon   the  fuud  have   increased   from ������i0,383  in September,  l(J14, to   "5950,000 in  September, 191b, and i-} is estimated  that the requirements for 1917    will  be at least tf 1,000,000 per month, or  $12,000,000 for the year, always ex  elusive of Manitooa, which province  prupu-jeti ti)'raise all of   its   own   requirements   locally,      which      will  amount to about $l,S00,0u0.'  The financial statement for the  province of British .Columbia to the  31st of August, 1910,'is as   fullows:  Receipts from provincial  points........ .*? 139,301  Victoria city...  205,970  Vancouver...  3-11,703  third twelve months just 50 per cent | only to the Canadian Patriotic fund.  Total receipts 81,0-16,978  Disbursements   during   the   same  period were:  Provincial points S   337,914  Victoria city       298,000  Vancouver,       647,085  more than we did in the second  period. If I may judge from the  several places which we have visited  during the past ten days, I believe  this can be done. It will, however,  mean that every effort must he put  foith by our committees and by all  patriotic citizens throughout this  country. At the 31st of August we  'were rendering assistance in this  province to the dependents of 6180  families, with 10,005 children. The  fund throughout Canada' was at the  same date assisting over 60,000  families with upwards of 200,000  individuals. The average amount of  assistance rendered per family in  British.Columbia is "$20, and varies  from 85 to 840 according to the sizs  of the family and the requirements,  always taking into consideration any  deduction which may be made on  account of free or Jow house rent  aud other sources of private income.  In this way weare.able to equalize  the income of the various families  to whom we are rendering assistance.  It is worthy of note that the only  impairment on account of the con  trioutious throughout Canada for  the administration oi this great fund,  which entails au enormous amount  ot work and covers some seven nun  dred branches, is only six-tenths of  one per cent.  There are mauy places ir. British  Columbia which have returned during tb.e past twelve months 25," 50  and, in some cases, 1U0 per cent  more than they promised at the beginning. At other points the full  amount promised has not been  forthcoming, aud it is hoped that,  with the improved conditions  throughout the country and the ac  tivc deniand"ibr labor and high  wages being paid, that there will not  oe any serious difficulty in raising  Lhe 81,000,000 asked'for.  The plan of  campaign   suggested  and wnich has during the past year  proved very successful,   is to organ  ize   at   every   point throughout the  province   a   campaign   committee,  diviuing the districts into as   many  subdivisions as may be thought de  sirable and then making a thorough  house to house canvass.    The  short  term campaign has proved the must  successful, and in most commuuitiis  this can be accomplished   iu   either  one, tvvo or three days, the monthly  contribution   plan   always   proving  thegmost   productive'of   results.    1  shall visit as many points as possible  during the next two   months in   an  endeavor to assist the local committees and also to explain to coutribu  tors and tbe public how their money  is being expended.  As Sir Herbert Ames is giving a  complete statement regarding tne  fundamental principle." and general  administration of the fund, it will  not be necessary for me to say any  more at this lime.  Receipts since the beginning of  the fund to 8lst of August, 1916,  from the following points:  At all of these points they also have  well-organized Red Cross societies,  aud also contribute in a generous  way to the Belgian relief, the prisoners of war, tobacco fund, and in  addition nearly every place quoted  has raised money for from one to j creased dividends for stockholders of  three machine   guns.

As a result  of   this  conference,    the national   Canadian  Patriotic fund was   formed.    At the  War Parliament it vvas inco-.pojated  by special act.   Branches have been  established from one end of Canada  to the other, and today   this work is  organized and coordinates in suub a  way as to follow  uniform   meth- ds,  and nowhere in our broad Dominion  can it be said that a soldier's wife in  vain appeals for help, if in need.  GltOWTH  "During 1914 the fund expended  8511,000; during 1915, 81,250,000;  during 1916 it is altogether probable  that ������10,000,000 will be disbursed.  For two years past we have added  little to out surplus, the d mauds  of each month being met by the re  ceipts of that period. Although our  needs have grown by leaps and  bounds, the generosity of the Canadian people has enabled us to keep  p.ice with them. Looking forward  into 1917, however, we realize that  we shall have to raise '"$1,000,000 a  mouth if we are to carry on this  work as heretofore.  It looks very much as if the  soidleis had elected W. J. Bowser  in Vancouver.

Iioadley,an old resident  of this city, was seriously injured at 7 o'clock on Monday  morning in a collision between  a speeder and an engine near  Ward's lake.  Hoadley and four companions���������H. Chambers, Walter  Salisbury, Jack Cook and L.  T-rankovitch ��������� comprising a  bridge crew, were on their  way to work, and were going  at a good speed. As they  rounded a curve an engine,  backing up in their direction,  suddenly appeared before  them. Four of the men jumped  and only one of them received  a few slight bruises, the others  escaping unharmed. Hoadley  remained on the speeder, and  he was in the forehead by the  engine, the skull being penetrated. He was removed to  the Grand Forks hospital,  where he now lies in a critical condition. It was at first  thought that his chances of  recovery were hopeless, but  this afternoon he regained  consciousness sufficiently to  recognize some of his friends.  Nearly his entire body is paralyzed. He is about 00 years  of aue.  About one half of the fruit crop  iii "the valley has been harvested  and shipped to all points of the  compass.

"There is a rumor going around,"

Germans especially dislike having our
chaps in front of them." Another
tribute to thc Canadians was paid by
a; high British officer, who said that
:hc first Canadian division Was equal
to the original expeditionary force
which went to France..
"That army, .while small, was thc
best in the "world. Canada had come
to manhood, said the speaker, and
.he believed that Canada's history as
a nation would date from the first
battle of Ypres. The Canadians on
that occasion had accomplished thc
impossible. Theoretically they were
wiped out, but some still remain today. ." The people mourned their loss,

promptly proceeded to nibble away

done, much to their master's delight.
Similarly, an cast end tradesman

outer part of his shop and trained it
to call "Stop!" whenever anyone entered by way of the street,door.
The parrot very quickly learned his

Rumania In History
Her Place in European History Has
Always Been an Honor-       ���
able One
* Though Rumania up to thc nineteenth century docs not appear to
have played a conspicuous part in
the advance of civilization, her place
in European history is an honorable
one, and, if less spectacular than
those of her neighbors^ her achievements have proved of supreme value.
By their stubborn resistance to the
Ottoman invaders, Rumanians, in
..common;with the other peoples inhabiting Oriental Europe, made possible that stability and security that
enabled Western civilization to develop, and, although they came under
the sway of thc Turks, yet the Rumanians, by -their ������.���determined stand,
so weakened the power of the Moslem invaders, that they were unable
to  carry on  thc fight.
Rosovo is a name sacred to all the
Balkan nations that resisted Turkish
rule. It was in 1389 that Mircea the
Old, Prince of Wallachia, led the
united Balkan armies against the
Turks. Thc battle was-lost; the vanquished were placed under tribute,
but their fight, against their conquerors'��� was carried on for centuries.
Like a great breakwater," these little
nations held the Ottoman waves in
chedfc, and left western Europe free
to forge ahead untrammclcd by the
fear of Moslem incursions. Until
1877 the tribute imposed five centuries earlier, following" the battle of Rosovo, was the basis of the relations
between Rumania and Turkey. Unlike Hungary, which for over a century was a Turkish province, the
Rumanian' provinces never fell completely under the sway of the conT
queror. Under the suzerainty of
Turkey, however, Rumania became a
mere pawn in the politics of the great
European powers. She lost Buko-
wina to Austria iu 1775, and Bessarabia to Russia in 1812. The jealousies of thc'.European powers alone
saved Rumania ,from greater territorial losses.
Under Prince Carol, who was related to the King of Prussia and to
Napoleon III., Rumania maintained
a bolder front against partition and
won her independence. Bulgaria
since then has done much to keep
alive Rumanian suspicions. At the
outset of the first Balkan campaign,
1910-11, Bulgarian official documents
referred to the'Dobrogca, which was
Rumanian territory, as a "Bulgaria
Irredenta." The double dealing of
the Central Powers in :thc last Balkan w*ar detached Rumania. Dreading the increasing influence of Germany in Bulgaria, Rumania turned to
Russia.
The present war finds Rumania in
a position favorable to the accomplishment of her most cherished
dream���thc inclusion under one flag
of all Rumanians. Transylvania is
the cradle of thc Rumanian nation. In
Bukowina and Bessarabia the peasants, not given to change, have preserved all the customs and characteristics of thc Rumanian race, including
thc language. In Transylvania, despite Magyar oppression, thc Rumanians form a strong middle class. Definitely detached from Germany, Rumania had not lime to recover from
her fears of Russian influence on the
Bosphorus when the European war
called for a decision as to her attitude. Moreover, the supply of all
her war materials was in the hands
of Krupps when the war broke out.
A weak Cabinet and an opportunist
Premier declared for neutrality.
While thc Roumanians of Transylvania were forced to fight in thc
Hungarian regiments against Russia,
statecraft in Rumania turned to questions of trade. But thc cry of Transylvania could not for ever go un-
! heeded. With Bulgaria on thc side
of thc Central Powers, the people of
Rumania recalled the words of Prince
Carol, addressed to Bismarck in 1880,
"Rumania will only be menaced by a
real danger when a Great Bulgaria
comes into existence." It is "Rumania Irredenta" against "Bulgaria
Irredenta."
Another Theory Shattered
A study of history will show-that
we may, with an easy conscience, dismiss the theory, of Treitschkc that
war is a health-giving tonic which
Providence must he expected constantly to offer to the human race for
its own good. Apart altogether
from thc hopes wc entertain for thc
victory in this war of a cause which
wc believe to be just, we may desire
in the interests of all mankind' that
its issue should discredit.by defeat ,a
theory| which is noxious as well as
baseless. " The future progress of
mankind is to be sought, not through
thc strifes and hatreds of thc nations,
but rather by their friendly co-operation in the healing and enlightening
works of peace, and in' the growth of
a spirit of friendship and mutual confidence which-removes the causes of
war.���The Atlantic Monthly.

Measuring Hay in Stack  Rule for Measuring Hay Which Has  Been Proven  Satisfactory  Estimating thc number of tons of  hay in stack by measuring is often  resorted to . when it is inconvenient  or"', impractical to weigh it. It is  impossible to give a rule for measuring hay which is entirely satisfactory/ The following one has.often  been Used,- states Professor E. G.  Schafer, of the Washington Experiment Station at Pullman, and approximates the correct weight:  "Width plus over, divided by four  and squared, then multiplied by the  length and divided by 512."  Thc above rules assumes that the  cross section of a stack may he obtained by dividing thc ^width plus  over measurement by four and  squaring it. Stacks vary so much in  shape that this cannot be absolutely  true with all stacks. Thc above rule  also assumes that there arc 512 cubic  feet in a ton. The length of time a  stack has been built, thc size of a  stack or the amount it has settled,  also the kind of hay, all influence thc  weight of a certain volume of hay.  The above or other rules should not  be relied upon unless it is impossible  to weigh hay when it is sold.  Problem���������Assume that a hay stack  measures 18 feet wide, 26 feet over  (distance from ground on one side  up over the stack and to the ground  on other side) and 30 feet long.  Thc solution would be���������18 plus 26  equals 44; "44 divided by 4 equals 11;  11 squared equals 121; 121 times 30.  equals 3,680 cubic feet in 3,630 divided by 512 equals 7.09 tons.

Milk As A Stimulant  French Soldiers in the Trenches Are  Given Milk Only as a Stimulant  One of the most recent discoveries  of thc Pasteur Institute of Paris lias  to do with stimulating qualities of  milk. While milk has always been  considered an excellent tonic and  known to be exceptionally rich in  food value, it was. not until the Pasteur Institute conducted a number of  conclusive experiments that the stimulus in milk became a known quantity. For a- number of months, milk  has been given thc French soldiers 'in  i Lhe trenches and to many of them it  I has been thc one and only stimulant.  Thc effect which the milk has produced has more than -justified the  claims which the Institute made for  it.  It is claimed that the stimulating  i effect of milk" is especially notable  when given to soldiers just before a  big battle or a dangerous charge, and  also when administered to the troops  when in great fatigue." The' advantage of the milk stimulus over the alcohol stimulus so extensively advocated in previous years is that there  is no bad after effects, and the keenness of the senses is in no wise impaired not the coolness of judgment  affected.  The knowledge that milk is a stimulant of no mean force will come as  something of a shock to those who  have hitherto considered it synonymous with all things mild and peaceful. It is somewhat difficult to be  lieve that the chief product of thc  patient and gentle cow should con  tain such an clement of forceful stimulation. But, as proof of the contention wc have the word of the world's  greatest research institutes backed  up by conclusive experiments in a  place where stimulation of thc most  efficient sort, is needed.

First is tln?t   of   the.  common purse.     It was    thought   hv  some that each community throughout  Canada would he doing   all   thnt   was  required of it by caring for the   fami  lies of those men who went from their  home town.   Had this been adopted as  a principle, some communities   would  have    been    called   upon   to assume a  verylisrht burden, while others would  have had more of a financial task than  they could carry through.   For reasons  that need not Imre   he   presented, recruiting has varies   in different   com  munities   Some districts are 'long   on  patriotism    and   short   on  cash.'   .In  others the reverse is true. To sav to a  district    that   has sent  an unusually  large number of men that it should be  taxed all out of proportion to the gen  oral rate for the benefit of the   deppn  dents in their midst,   wou'd   he   anything but just   and   fair.    Hence, we  early adopted the plan of asking everv  community to give all that it was able  and of permitting each   community to I  draw whatever might be requi red   for  proven needs.

"As is generally" known,  the   Canadian government grants   820   sen-iri  tion    allowance    to    th������ wife of ev:h  soldier and a similar sum to the    widowed    mother   of   an unmarried man  where it is known* that   she   was   de  pendent whollv upon her son   for sun  port.   In addition to   this   the soldier  assigns a part   of   his    p.av     'Tf from  those two sources the monthlv amount  is not sufficient to permit   the   family  to live decentlv and   comfortably, the  Patriotic   fund   makes   up the difference,   ft is obvious that-   the   government must give the same rate   to   the  soldier by way of pay  and   the  same  amount to his wife by way of   separation allowauce no matter   what   province   she    may   live in and no matter  how    many   children   may be  in her  family    Hence, there, are   some local!  ties where separation    allowance   and  assigned pay are almost, if not entirely, sufficient, and there are some fami  lies so situated that they need   no   ad  ditional help.     The Patriotic fund can  do what the govnrnment   can not   do,  namelv, it can discriminate,   consider  in" the circumstances of each   familv  by itself.   Now, tho scale of living dif  fens materially in the several provinces  1'tiMqaires far more to live  comforta  blv in Saskatchewan than   in   Prince  Edward  Island       Hence, we find   the  monthly grant from the Patriotic fund  varies with thc  districts     In   Prince  Edward Island the average family re  ooives from us about 89.50 a    month;  in    Nova    Scotia   SI2 50;    in    New  Brunswick SM; in Ontario   and Quebec abont $15;   in   Manitoba $18; in  Saskatchewan 821; Alberta and    British Columbia from   $19   to   $20   per  month.   In Prince Edward  Island the  family with $-14 50   per   month   from  all    sources   is   as   comfortable as the  Saskatchewan family with  856     The  goverument gives trie same amount in  each case.but the Patriotic fund varies  according to tho cost of living  VOr.UXTAItV COMMITTKKH.  "Another characteristic of  the   Pa  a man remarks,- 'These soldiers' wives  are getting too much; it tends to extravagance, now and nereafter.' Well,  let us consider this point from two angles: First, whether we arc paying  too much for ihe service the soldier  renders, and, secondly, whether we  are giving the dependents more than  is good for them. You can hardly estimate the services of the soldier from  triotic fund is that it has been able to  secure the splendid services of a large  number    of      voluntary    committees.  Almost   invariably these   committees  consist of men of high standing in the  communities where   they   live.    They  give their time free of   charge; conse  quently tlie fund is run at very   small  expense.

"The policy of the   fund    is,    from  time to time, determined   by   the national    executive   committee,     which  meets monthly at Ottawa.  This bodv,  of which his    royal   highness   is    the  chairman, Sir Thomas White the lion  orary treasurer, Sir Herbert Ames the  honorary   secretary,    and   Mr    John  Kraser, auditor-general of Canada,the  official auditor of the   fund,   contains  leading men representing every   province.    They meet monthly, and every  detail of the work passes under   their  examination      It   is   no   'figurehead'  committee, bui a body of earnest men,  scrupulously   odui.nistering    a    great  ti*u-<t   The Ottawa head office exercises  over every branch a careful system   of  check arid audit.   Each month, in   advance, a branch draws    what    it    re  quires, and at tho   end of each month  must render a detailed    statement   of  how every dollar has been spent. This  statement  is    carefully  checked   and  the branch advised   if there   is   anything in their action   that,  should   be  changed.   You may feel   assured that  little, if any, money reaches those who  do not require it, or is  wasted   in   ad  ministration expenses  Ouu Nurds for 1917.  Looking forward into the coming  year we realize that, including Mani  toba, the reqvirements of. the fund  will be appt-Mxiulately 813,500.000.  Of this sum. the. Manitoba Patriotic  fund (an independent organization,  but, acting in perfect harmony with  us), will locally raise and expend  81,500.000 This means that the generous people of Manitoha expect to  contribute aga-n, as they have before,  at the rate of S3 per capita. This  leaves 812,000.000 to he divided  among seven and one quarter million  people. In British Columbia we are  now expending 8135.000 every month  Probably 81,750,000 will be required  for the needs of this province during  the next twelve months Of this sum  we ask British Cslumbia to provide  about one half. We feel confident  that the amount will bo cheerfully  raised and that your loyal  will not lug behind.  province  AN'.SWKUS TO Cl'ITICrSMS.  "Lik'1 all things human, the Patriotic fund comes iu for criticism. There  are those who do not want to give and  who, therefore, seek an excuse for  witholding their support. To meet the  criticism of such, let lis deal with a  few of the things they say.   .Sometimes  1 river and the great   mass   of   floating  timbers rising to the surface, with here  and there a head appearing; and when  I saw wounded and dying men pulled  into    the   boats,   and  realized that a  dozen or more had    sunk   forever,    I  could not feel that the bonus was unjustifiable.     We must remember   inspect    to   our   soldiers, that they are  engaged on an extra hazardous-under  taking, that they are at   the   present  time  performing   the   most necessary  and most important service a Canadian.can render, and. while they are so  engaged,   their   "wives .and    children  have a right to livp. decently and comfortably, even if thev have-never donn  so before   There may be an occasional  soldier's wife who makes extravagant  use of her money, hut where   there  is  one such there will be a score of homes  where every cent is needed and is used  to good purpose.    The fund endeavors  to restrain the   extravagant   woman,  but the percentage that need   caution  is small indeed.   A letter came   to   us  at   head   office   the other day to this  effect:  'Isit true that vou have a surplus of more thun $2,000,000?    Tf so,  how can you ask for more?' The writer  imagined    that      a    fund   with    this  amount   in    the    hank was protected  for an indefinite period, but the  draft  made upon us by our branches   during  September   totalled   8950,000,     and  were no further monies to como in, we  would be bankrupt witin ninety days  No commercial enterprise wou'd   take  risks    greater    than   these.     If peace  were declared somorrow   the   sources  of our    contributions    would   .inpidly  fail, as many who give us monthly do  so conditionally that they pay   onlv to  the end of the war    But we may have  two hundred   thousand    men or more  across the sea at that time    They can  not  all   come   home at once.    Six or  eight months would elapse before they  could all rejoin their families    During  this period   their  wives   will have to  be helped us heretofore, so that every  dollar of our   surplus, and   more, will  be needed during the transition   period.     Hence, our efforts now to make  income and outgo balance   month   by  month.  SHOULD T'lK PKDKIlAIi OOVKUXMEXT RK  I'r.ACK TIM". FUND?

It   goes   soinethinL*  like this:     A man and   woman   come  into   the   Patriotic fund   office.     He  asks for the secretary of the Patriotic  fund      'Mr. Secretary,'says   Tom, 'J  am thinking of enlisting,   but    before  doing so I wish to kuow* what   will be  done for Mary.'    'How many children  have youT asks the secretary. 'Three,'  is the reply.    'Well, the   government  will grant you $20 a month separation  allowance   and   you will   assign    her  some of your pay.'     'Bnt,' says   Tom,  'Mary can not   keep   the.   house   and  three    kiddies   decently    on    S35   a  month'    'Nor will she have    to,'   re  plies the secretary,  "for the   Patriotic  fund will   give   her, in   addition,   the  amount that may he necessary to bring  her up to the scale of   decent   liviug '  So Tom and Mary    depart.

The secretary of the   fund    may    not  know where his next month's money is  coming from, but he-does   know   that  tho head office is behind him, and the  head office that the people of   Canada  will see to it that   month   by    month  the amount necessary   to   meet these  demands is obtained.    We, the pe<>p'e  of Canada, stand behind this   unwrit  ten    pledge, and although    all    other  pledges   be   broken, this one must be  kept   It is this pledge that   makes   it  possible for Mary   to consent    to   his  going and to take up life's burden    in  his absence.

Many    Notable Inventions    Are the  Result of Ingenuity of Women ,  Women' arc. generally considered  lacking in inventive ability. Thc  truth is that they have been taking'  out patents steadily since 1790.

G>  WIFE  HELPS THE  SOLDIER-FARMER TO  SUCCEED  The Government Is Making a Special  Monetary Allowance in  Addition to the Pension, for the Maintenance of Both the Soldier  And his Family, While he is Receiving Elementary Training  . ���������:��������� o-���������   '^What makes you think you will  ���������succeed as a farmer.?"  The'queslion was asked'of a returned soldier who had expressed a very  strong desire to get on the land.  "My wife," he'answered.  "Do you mean to say she persuaded  you?"  "No, I didn't need any persuading.  But she wants to go as much as I  do."  "Does she understand what it  means?"  "She ought. She was born and  ..brought up on a farm; she . is not  afraid of hard work; and' she prefers  to live in the country anyway."  "For  thc  children's  sake?"  "We've got -none, worse luck. No,  ihc likes it better herself."  That man's battle is half won.  He was not a farm boy himself,  and he, docs not imagine that the  little experience he possesses is enough. He is therefor taking advan-  tag of the. elementary training, in  such matters as gardening and, poultry raising, already started by the  Military Hospitals Commission at  some of its Convalescent Hospitals;  . and he aims at taking a course of  extra instruction later "on at one of  the agricultural  schools.

He gives a very vivid and interesting description of how a great  army is administered in the field.  Of especial importance is the  manner in which thc British soldier  is cared for.  "Wc meet generals who arc not  only .warriors," said M. Brisso, "but  who are great administrators, trained  in India,. Egypt, Africa, accustomed  to plan the details of a campaign.  They spare neither expense nor trouble in.establishing the base of a lengthy military action.  "I admired their calm confidence in as  the sovereign power of Great Britain.  Always    they made    the same statement:  " 'Wc English need time to understand. We did not know war like  this. It had to be learned. We are  slow in starting, but we are there  now, and nothing can stop us.'  "The greatest commendation is due  to the sanitary service.    On principle  the   English^  soldiers    do   not  want should"  be  harvested    for  sheaf  ex"  hibits as soon as the crop is mature and before it is thoroughly dry.  Better exhibits ..-will result if thp  grain is pulled and suspended by  the roots until dry. .At the time of  preparing the; exhibits the roots  should be cut off and only���������������������������'..those  stalks which have full length of straw  and well developed.heads should be  used. The grain .should be bound in  sheaves,about four inches in diameter  and tied in two places. A tape  should be used in tying the sheaves  as it is less likely 'to injure or break  the straw than string. Black or white  tape is to be preferred and fancy ribbon should never be used in tying the  sheaves. If the leaves arc removed  from lhe stems the exhibit" will have  a neater appearance.  The Influence for Better Crops Resulting from Fair Activities  The'use of better seed offers one  of the most effective methods for  increasing the yield of farm crops.  The work of seed improvement associations and individuals who carefully select- their own seed, has resulted in the general use of better  seed. Competition in producing and  displaying crop products of high  quality at agricultural fairs is another influence which should have an  increasing benefit on thc quality of  seed planted. Thc influence for better crops resulting from fair activities would be greater if more persons exhibited their products and if  greater care would be taken in thc  selection and preparation of exhibits.  A creditable exhibit of field crops  should contain products which arc  typical of the district they represent.  The crops comprising an exhibit  should be harvested when in prime  condition and should be ,pf superior  quality and worth. They also should  be properly and tastefully arranged  when placed on exhibit.  Professor Ji. G. Schafer, of thc  Washington Experiment Station, at  Pullman, gives the following directions for the preparation of seed and  sheaf- exhibits.  Seed grain, -wheat, oats and barley. Grain prepared for exhibit should  be true lo variety name . It should  be harvested when it is mature but  not over (ripe. It should be threshed  as early as possible after harvest.  Rain and other conditions of weather  may cause discoloration. Usually  grain should be rcclcaned in order  that all chaff and foreign matter  may be removed. It should also be  graded to remove very large vand undersized kernals. Unless* the rules of  the fair specify otherwise, the samples should consist of one peck.

In the Face of Her Gross Underestimation of Brave Little Belgium  Arid of the Moral and Physical Resources of France, Great  Britain, and Allies, Can Germany Be Called Efficient?   o    _ No nation can long be called efficient which fails to advance thc general life of humanity. As the war  drags on, with its ever-increasing  wake of ruin and irreparable loss,  Germany is fast losing her "place in  thc sun," and stands as the "horrible  example" of utter failure along thc  avenues of real world service. That  she is powerful no one can deny; but  that her strength is of the eternal  type is daily becoming more doubtful.  In a sense she has been deficient, but  for fundamentally wrong purposes;  and unless the unexpected happens,  she is bound to undermine her own  foundations and find herself less respected and both morally and physically weaker than before tlie conquest of Alsace-Lorraine.  The war has progressed sufficiently  far for one to turn thc light of truth  on German efficiency in the actual  field of battle. Where is her boasted  superiority? Most people think she  has done surprisingly well as a fighting unit. The facts warrant an entirely different conclusion. Boasting  of a marvellous secret service, and  apparently prepared for a world war,  she can never be called efficient in  thc face of her gross underestimation  of brave little Belgium. Apparently,  expecting a triumphal inarch through  Belgium and a speedy attack in force  at the most vulnerable spot in France,  this great "machine" was held up a  full month by the despised Belgians,  giving France and her allies an opportunity to marshal their strength  and prepare ior the conflict.

From thc straw  stack, which has hilherto gone up in  smoke, gas can now be extracted, and  by such a simple process that every  farmer can cook, heat his house,  light his residence, and run his engines from his own little gas plant  right at his very back door, using the  much-despised straw pile as a means  to this end.  Thc Dominion By-Product and Research Society, of Moose Jaw, of  which George Harrison, M.E., general manager of the Saskatchewan  Bridge and Iron Works, is the leading spirit, has discovered and perfected a small gas works which will in  the near future be manufactured in  the city and installed on- practically  every quarter section throughout the  country.  Mr. Harrison, thc patentee, has obtained patent rights in Canada, the  United States, Russia and the Argentine Republic. In an . interview recently he said that no farmer will be  without his own gas plant in the near  future.  The    exceedingly    simple way    in'  which the gas is produced guarantees Jspirit7 it.is almost  the truth of this statement. One bale jwould not have struck' when she did.
