A communication , from. F.' D.  Moffett, of Enderby, made inquiries  regarding the opportunities for the  establishment of a flour mill at this  point. The members of the council  were of the opinion that the city  would be .willing to grant 6ome con-  ce8sions,;a'nd the clerk was instructed t6r answer the corrsepondence  along'these lines.  A petition -was received from S.  T. Hull and M. f.' Kerman for a  cement sidewalk on Fourth street.  The petition did not contain the  namesof all the property ' owners  affected by the proposed walk, and  it was referred back to the petitioners for correction. Aid. Bickerton  drew - the attention of the council  to the fact that other petitions for  sidewalks, received prior to this one,  had been turned.down owing to the  fact that the council had practically  . decided not to inaugurate any more  new work this year. As fhe sidewalk on Fourth street is in very bad  condition,.however, the"council !de-  cided to defer its final decision in  the matter until the corrected peti-  .tion is presented.  A delegation of ratepayers consisting of Win. Dinsmore, C. B. Peterson and Mr. Scott, from the West  ward, addressed the council. They  desired the conncil to endorse a  resolution adopted at a meeting of  West end citizens protesting to the  post office department against the  proposed closing of the Columbia  post jffice.  -Mr. Dinsmore, in asking the council to endojse the resolution, said  the Columbia post office was a great  convenience to the people in the  West end. and as no one would be  in.ju.ied by its continuance, he hoped  the request would be complied with.  Mr. Peterson laid stress on the fact  that it would hasten tbe development of the city if the people of all  sections of it worked in harmony.  The residents of the West end  needed the Columbia post office,  and as its continuance would injure  no portion of city, he did not see  why the old rivalry between the two  ends of the city should not be forgotten, and the council unanimously endorse the resolution Mr. Scott  pointed out the fact that the post  office was a great convenience to the  C.P.R. employees and to the work-  ingmeh generally of the  West  end.  Mayor Gaw, replying to the delegation, said be realized the importance of the Columbia post office,  but be was afraid- the resolution  would have no effect on postal authorities.  Aid. Donaldson had some hesitancy in speaking on the subject,  as people might think that he was  directly interested in the matter.  Eeveryone knew, however, that the  salary as postmaster was too small  to influence him one way or the  other. He showed the advantages  of the office to the- people of the;  West end; said there was a largo,  amount of business transacted at the  office. It was his opinion that some  one had furnished the   nepartment,  with unreliable information   regarding the number of people.who  were  served by the office.-  Aid. MeCallum could get his mail  downtown,. but he had found the  Columbia office very convenient.  The, maintenance of the Columbia  post office involved the same princi-  dle - that" induced Great Britain to  come to the rescue of Belgium. In  the- amalgamation agreement between Grand. Forks -and Columbia  there was , a claupe pledging both  towns to use their utmost endeavors  to have the two offices maintained.  In view of this fact he supported  the resolution. ���������    ���������   ���������  Aid. Bickerton~favored the resolution, and Aid. Bonthron thought  the council should support it if the  clause mentioned by Aid. MeCallum  was in the amalgamation agreement.' Aid. Henniger did not care  much whether tbe office was continued or closed. He had a tender  feeling for tbe office-because he had  formerly hauled-the mail to it, hut  it created confusion in addressing  city letters. Aid, Manly spoke at  length against the council endorsing  the resolution. He did not like to  pay 2 cents postage on letters ad  dressed to the West end when he  sent out his monthly accounts, and  the compliance with the request of  the delegation might prevent the  city from obtaining future favors  from the post office department. -  '-Mr.- Peterson replied to Mr.-Manly  in a heated manner. Tbe matter  of an extra cent's postage on letters  to the West end was too small an  item, hesaid, to be considered. The  people of that section of the city  wanted the Columbia post office,  and he felt confident that it would  be maintained.  On motion of Aid. MeCallum and  Bickerton, the council endorsed the  resolution by practically a unanimous vote, and copies of it were  ordered to be sent by telegraph to  Hon. Martin Burrell and. to the  post office department.  The chairman of the board of  works reported that the board was  making preparations to install the  rock crusher, and it would soon be  ready to start operations He did  not think it would be advisable to  store the crushed rock, as it would  occasion more or less waste. The  best method to pursue would be to  hire.teams and have it hauled direct  onto the streets. He thought $3 a  day for teams, and $2 for men, for  eight hours' work, would be fair  wages. Tbe Winnipeg avenue  bridge, he said, was in a bad cpndi  tion, and it would have to be replaced next summer by an entirely  new bridge, as the supports and  framework were badly decayed. He  suggested that the matter of putting  in a subway under tbe track,in place  of the hridge, be taken up with the  Canadian Pacific Railway company.  This would give employment to a  large number of laborers. The cost  of the subway, should not exceed  $1000. The work could be started  this fail, but it would not necessarily have to be-completed until next  summer. The chairman also recommended that Jens Anderson be employed as crusherman, and Mr. Mc- j  Dougall as engineer. j  On motion, the clerk was instructed to request the Canadian   Pacific  Railway eompany to repair the side-'.  walk on Third street,between Bridge  street and Winnipeg avenue.  A resolution was adopted  to   the  ZE WINNERS  AT TOE FAIR  The fifth^annual fair-of.the Grand  Forks ��������� - Agricultural' association  opened Tuesday morning and closed'  Wednesday night.

(Continued on Page 5.)  Friday  The allied navy takes an Austrian  island.  The premiers of Canada are asked  to aid Belgian sufferers.  The commander of the Canadian  contingent will be chosen in  Lcndon.  The Australian navy ocoupies German New Guinea, one of the most  valued Teuton possessions,.  The    Russians   win   the   opening  skirmish   of   the   battle  on the East  Prussian front.    The   Servians   bom  bard the monitorz when asked to  surrender the city of Belgrade.  Almost simultaneous two great  hammer, strokes in the battle in northern France have fallen and some de  cisive result must soon be announced.  The allies have struck the German  right wing and the Germaus on their  part have hurled themselves against  the French line between Verdun and  Toul. Should either stroke be driven  home the battle would be decided.  The announcement of these two at  tacks in earnest was disclosed by the  French official statement this ��������� afternoon, but little is told of how they  are progressing.  Saturday  A violent battle had been raging  for three days up to Saturday night  between the Rivers Oise and Somme,  in which the allies made some progress. . , ...  A portion of the $50,000,000, voted  bv the Dominion parliament at its war  session is to be devoted to the relief of  the stricken residents of the little  kingdom of Belgium  The Germans hurl masses of troops  at the allies in a vain effort to break  the left wing. The British are in the  .thick of the most furious fighting of  the campaign. The Scots Greys paint  their horses brown to offer a less con  spicuous mark. The forces are in  such close contact that bayonet fighting is frequent. The British war  office says the situation is satisfactory.  The Russians pursue the Austrians  over the Carpathians, entering Hungary. Capture mortars after the dis  orderly flight from Przemysl and the  artillery after a victory in the mountains. Fighting in Galicia contiuues  desperate. The Muscovites repulse an  invasion by great masses of the kaiser's troops, but every day fresh Teu  ton army corps is rushed into the  East Prussian arena of the war.  Monday  Canadian factorias are making shells  for machine guns.  Duala, capital of German Kamerun,  has surrendered to a British force.  The Russians smash the plans of  the Gorman generals, and their scheme  to secure a base ends in a forced retreat. Przemysl is now hemmed in.  The Austrians are routed from the  third defense line,  A Bek'ian doctor just out of Brussels says that Prince Adelbert, the  kaiser's third son, has died in a hos  pital there and that Dr. Lo Page,  King Albert's physician, was ordered  to hold an autopsy in the presence of  two German doctors. It was found  that the prince had been killed by a  German bullet.  Day after day the allies on the left  wing repulse furious assaults. With  admirable firmness the British slaughter the foe with fire and bayonet  The French troops also succeed in  pushing the enemy back from the  trenches. Thousands of dead are  abandoned by the Germans, who lose  heavily. Generals who replace those  dismissed by the kaiser grow reckless  of tho cost in lives in a desire to push  tho Franco-British armies back. The  situation is favorable, says a laconic  French report,  (Continued on Pa ye 4^  mmwmmttimmmiiiB*&Q <&. ������'v%  wbm r^^r:^Bjii^ywaEB������ ������.cv  REVENUE  CUTTER   SERVICE  How it Came to be Placed  Under the  Trensury Department  The United States revenue cutler  service is a military arm of'lhe government, attached to and under the direction ot* iho treasury department.  Tlie service was organized in l7!)0 and |  constituted the original naval-force of i  Llic country. There was at that time'  no navy dei artment, and tho service  was placed under thc treasury department, where it litis remained ever  since.  It is claimed with the enforcement  of the navigation and customs laws of  the United States, the assistance of  vessels in distress, the protection of  the -scaling "*iduatryiii Alaska, the enforcement of the Quarantine laws, the  destruction. of derelicts and other  floating dangers to . navigation and  numerous other duties appropriate' to  its class of vessels. Each winter, by  direetion_of the president, a number  ol" tlie cutters patrol the coast,for the  special purpese of assisting vessels in.  distress. i  The service "co-operates, with th������s  navy when directed by the president  and has so co-operated in every .war in  whicii the United States.has been engaged. It is sometimes called the revenue marine service,.blit revenue cutter  service is the proper name. There are  forty-three eitters in the service, and  they carry from one to five or six guns  each.       " . -���������  SOl.ONf* AND SALARIES  Heart of  the   Hailstone  Tf. it were not for the countless trl-  lion's of dust particles that float separately    invisible    in the atmosphere  there  could- be  no  raindrops,    snow  crystals' or Hailstones.    From    a perfectly,dusttess atmosphere the moisture would descend in ceaseless rain  without .'drops.'-; The    dust    particles  serve as nuclei about which the vapor  gathers.    The snow crystals    is  the  most beautiful creation of the aerial  moisture,  and  the  hailstone    is   the  most   extraordinary.    The    heart  of  every hailstone is a tiny atom of dust.  Such an atom, with a little   moisture  condensed about it, -is the germ from  which may grow a hailstone capablo  of felling a man or smashing a  window.    But first'it. must be caught up  by a current-of air and carried to the  level of the lofty cirrus clouds, five or  six or even ten miles high. Then, con'  linually gro1". ing by frcsli accession of  moisture, it begins its first plunge to  the earth, spinning through the clouds  and flashing in the sun like a diamond  bolt shot from a rainbow.

Tho .Portuguese legislators  are not remunerated by the state, but  they have a-iree pass for travelling on  all railways in the country, and their  constituencies are permitted to pay a  sum equivalent to 1.5 shillings for each  day's sitting  Denmark is another country "which  believes tha'. its political gentlemen  are ready to v/ork for almost nothing.  Members of pailiivment there only receive 6 shillings'per'day, but they have  the peculiar privilege of a free seat in  the Royartheatre in Copenhagen. .  The Norwegian honorable member  is thankful for a daily income of 12  shillings, though he must do his: duty  properly to get it, He loses a day's  pay when he. takes a day-off. Members of the Swiss diet work under the  same threat. If "they are absent they  lose salary *,vhich amounts in their  case-to Iti .--hillings a day.  -. ; Roumania pays her mwmakers a  sovereign per day, and Bulgaria offers  16 shillings. In the latter country  liiembers living in the capital have 4  shillings deducted because they have  no train fares to pay arid only one  home to keep up.  . Hungary treats her statesmen just,  half as well as England does, allowing  them ������200 per annum. They have,  however, a liberal allowance fer house  rent and can travel first class with  second class tickets.���������London Tit-Bits.  "Curing"   Diseases  "What is a cure?'" asks the editor  of the London Lancet in reproving  doctors for the loose way in "which  they use the word. "Nothing ever  gets completely well" is an aphorism  of a great medical philosopher.  Only when the cause of a diseased  condition hau leen removed, its effects  neutralized and the organism protected against its activities in the future  have we the right to speak of the  "cure" of the patient, is the editor's  opinion. Immunity conferred by such  a cure, he says, may be only temporary. "YVher-s a disease process is only  limited ��������� or shut off and its further  spread prevented, while the casual  agent remains, we should speak of arrest, but not of cure. Where grave  organic "damage hap', occurred and  function has: been restored by vicarious activities we should speak of the  result as one of repair; or compensation."   : - "  Many mothers have reasons to bless  Mother Graves' Worm Exterminator,  because it has relieved the little ones  of suffering and made them healthy.

In  oue of her father's fists he was holding  his other hand, while a cussy expression was floating over-his features.  "Where is that antiseptic salve, Minnie?" he demanded almost roughly.  "That infernal parro; of yours has bitten a chunk oik of my hand!"  "What's chat, Jimmy?" exclaimed  little wifey, with, a loolc of great concern.

Mexico's Spiked Mountain  One of the most remarkable geological freaks in Mexico is a mountain situated on the outskirts of  Pachuca which presents the appearance at a distance of being covered  with spikes. The s'des of the mountain are closely studded with stone  columns or palisades. These column?  are five to twelve '.'eet long and as  large around as an. average man's  body. It is a remarkable uplift of nature which hf.s the appearance, however, of being tho handiwork of human  beings. On3 side ol' the mountain is  almost perpendicular and the stone  columns protrude from the surface at  right angles, forming an impressive  picture. Pachuca-is one of UiC/mcst  noted mining district; in Mexico, an 1  it is said .by geologists that this re-,  markable "spiked mountain is out of  .keeping with thc remainder of the  formation of the m'neralized region.  The stone is as bar- as flint ?nd has  withstood the elements for ages. The  spikes form a- natural battlement- that  makes the mountain appear from a  distance like some ancient fort.  National Tc.stes in Pearls  It is estimated b;." a writer in the,  Paris Revue that a necklace bought  for $100,000 at the end of the nineteenth century might, now be expected  to fetch $1,000..000. With the constant  increase of wealth the value of pearls  is likely to 'continue :to increase, and  a good collection may be regarded as  one of the most profitable of investments.;- The taste of different countries in the matter of pearls differs.  Some of the national predilections are  as follows: England, white pearls; t ic  Argentine, slightly colored or cream:  North America, - pink; Germany,  white; France, pink or slightly cream.

The original "mite" seems to have  been a third* of a'Flemish penny, but  the use of the word for the widow's  coin.of the N^w Testament made its  regular English meaning half a farthing, and rome old people may remember applying the name to the  short lived nfn-jteanth century coins of  thta value. In those old arithmetic  books "mite" standi: for various values not represented by actual coins,  but obvious'.y used in reckoning. \  work of 170G makes it one-twelfth of a  penny, t>vo sixteenth century books,  one-sixty-fourth of a penny.���������London  Jeake's arithmetic made it as little as  one-sitxy-fourth of a penny.���������London  Chronicle. -  Minard's  Liniment Cures Colds, etc.  Played With Fire Balls >  For many centuries polo, or chaugan, as it was then called, was a favorite pastime with Asiatic rulers. A  contemporary am.alist records of Ak-  bar, tlie greatest of Mogul emperors,  that "he plnys at Chaugan on dark  nights, the balls being set on fire. Por  the sake of adding splendor to the  game his majesty has knobs of gold  and silver fixed to the chaugan sticks.

HANDLING   BAGGAGE  A System That Simplifies Matters for  thu Railroad  Men  Like most other mysteries, that of  handling .the���������'.thousands of pieces -of  luggage that conic to a great railroad  station has a simple solution. It seems  to the layman'that, there ruusf"be eon-  fusion'when incoming trains dump  hundreds of trunks and hand bag's Into.'the'.baggag** rooms for distribution  to 'all quarters of- the city. System,  which has como to play an important  part in all bur-ines** nowadays, has  made baggage handling a rather simple  matter for; the railroads. It is the  use-of a key number that does the  trick.  Thavelers havo noticed that their  check numbers run into six .figures, ��������� if  they pay attention to the figures on  their checks at all. , It is the third of  these units, counting back from the  final number, that is the key to the  whole system of dstribution. The expressman who handles the baggage for  its home distribution hands into the  baggage agent his mass of collected  checks, all sorted on that basis, and  the baggage handlers'hustle the stuff  out with, very little delay.  Suppose h'~ has only a few checks  from an'incoming local train. They  may read 384741, 384301, 38-1599, 384,-  735, ,",84812,.384487, 384622, 384256, 384.-  739, 3847'47,';384056 and 384123. In each  case tlie first'three figures are identical���������38-i. .-'The first variation begins  with the.fouith, or hundreds, unit. By  mejins of-.this'unit he separates his  .checks���������all ��������� the 7's in one bunch, all  the 5's in' another, and so on. ���������  ��������� In the baggage room the trunks and  bags are distributed as soon as received in ten apartments, each bearing a  unit number, from 0 to 9. That number invariably represents the hundreds unit of the claimant's check. The  trunk with a 384543 check would go to  the same ccm-jartment as one numbered 385543. or 383543 or 12543 or  987543; The figure 5 is the key figure, with the result that there is never  any-.confusion.; or trouble in locating  the baggage desired. It would be in  the compartment numbered 5.  * This simple plan solves the mystery  as to the prompt location of a piece of  hand baggage when- a passenger rolls  up to the "baggage room door in a taxi  to get the pioce of luggage he has had  checked and has to wait but a moment  to obtain it. It is a very simple solution of the trouble that a few years  ago annoyed all travellers,who had to  wait for baggage to be transferred  from one terminal to another in their  own convey;;ucej.  FRANCE   IN   SOUTH   AMERICA  Its Influence in the Metling Pot of the  Latin Races  South America is the melting pot of  the'Latin.races,.and tbe French influence now seems to predominate over  that of Spain. Italy is well represented, especially������������������' ri strong Argentina.  Brazil seems to. be the most polyglot  of them all, for here the native Portuguese is mingled not only with tho  Spanish and French and English, but a  great deal.of German.: In the south of  Brazil 90 per cent, of the people speak  German, and Portuguese is not always  enforced as 'he language even of the  public schools.  The large German colonies here do  not affiliate with these people as they  do with the Anglo-Saxon brothers of  the north. They live to themselves,  they retain thei." own language and  customs. In Chile, whore there - are  many English,'i-oo', the Germans'direct  the education of. the country.' Buenos  ���������^A'yres is close to this Germanic 'group  in Southern Brazil and feels its influence, though Argentina seems thc  most unified and progressive of the  republics in point of literary expression and culture.,   .  French influence also, is felt in Brazil. Rio de* Janeiro itself was founded  as a refuge lor French Huguenots  though they were afterward driven  back. In Paris today -one hears that a  youth is to emigrate to America, but.  probably it is to Rio that he is going.  There are many French immigrants,  and French is required in most of the  schools and is next to the native  tongue in importance in Northern  Brazil. Formerly, in Brazil Spanish or  German always came next to French,  bufltis said that some of .the states  now require English as the third language and that Brazilians are proud of  their English.  A. man wearing a. worried look went  into a shop which advertised a patent  slug exterminator, and asked for a  hundredweight.

'    .  :  The Revenge of Neglected Things -  We may aj well face the fact that so  long as we and our children are "at  large in a community, we shall be in  danger fr.om all the evils that are  also, at large in that community, and.  though ; we may be able to exclude  from our. homes..the moth, the housefly, the agent and the burglar, we cannot exclude germs. They ride in "on  the trails of ou:: gowns, they are  tracked in on our shoes. They come in  food and drink, in washes, in clothing,  in wares. They come by niosengerr,  and carriers and servants, as do the  influences of evil.  We need not go to thc slums if we  do not wish. They will come to us,  and, wreaking upon us the Revenge of  Neglected Things, they will avenge  the poor.  Yet it is net vengeance the poor are  wanting. TI.ey only want help, and  they do not dream how much,we could  give them, besides alms. They stand;  afar off, and look at us, beseeching  too timid to knock at our forbidding  portals. But the White Death, who  has been their bed-fellow, is not abashed by.any grpndeur, or stoppedby any  bar. He comes straight from-the filthy  hovel to our homes, and peers in upon'  us through, the windows, while Ave  feast and laugh. "I-D pushes open the  door; and strides in, and sitting down  lit o'ur ' very' fireside, looks into tho  faces^of our"best beloved,-so that they  cry out and die!      ';.. ','-'.���������'��������� ".,  Tlie revenge of the slums falls not  only upon the individual, but upon the  city, in all its interests and activities.  It falls upon the city in losses of  lives and money, taxes paid for pauperism, for c.-ime, for ��������� the cost of disease; -  It falls upon the city organizations-  that ignore the slums, by the light of  their very ugliness and meanness,  which frightens renters and buyers  from the neighborhood, and injures all  adjacent-poperty.  It falls upon them," too, by breeding  a class of citizens that are a dead  weight to civic progress.  It falls upon the business interests  by killing or Aveakening valuable working men, Avhose loss is felt in traffic,  trade and manufacture.  It falls upon tho churches, by raising up those who defeat and defy  them, by lowering the AA'hole moral  tone of the community, and increasing  the resistance^to the poAvers of good.  These are the Avays in which Ave arc  scourged by the slums, and until Ave  learn our lesson, we must continue to  suffer as Avell as the poor.���������Albion  Fellows Bacon in The Survey.

No definite decision has been reach  ed by the government yet. If the  administration is determined to  embroil the country in political turmoil at this critical period of the  empire's history, the action- would  prove a convincing argument why  the government should be  defeated.

After a vacation of  two months, General Pancho Villa  has again made his appearance on  the front page of the  daily   papers  Reports from Franklin stale that  the disasterous storm in the history  of the camp was experienced there  on Saturday. The wind, which  blew a hurricane, demolished the  front of the hotel, laying it flut  across the street, removed the roofs*  of other buildings and blocked the  road with trees. The government  telephone system was put out of  commission, and prospectors state  that the rain fell so heavy that it  seemed like a cloud-burst.  Hunters are advised to exercise  care in shooting grouse. Nu-ubers  of quail have been seen between this'!  city and Cascade, which are liable to  scatter, to all parts of the valley before the bird shootingseason closes.  Quail are much smaller than grouse,  but somewhat larger than meadow  larks, and 11 y much like prairie  chicken. These birds multiply very  rapidly and if they are not molested  there should be thousands of them  in a year or two. The season on  quail.and prairie chicken is closed  indefinitely.

Among some    tribes the  dying man himself is borne outside.  He is never tarten out through the entrance tunnel, but always through tlie  smoke hole cr back of the house, and  the passage i:  then closed so that his  spirit will not find its way back. The  Eskimos appear to have an urcanny  presentiment of the approach of that  dread spirit who comes to one and all.  When you    see    them preparing tho  grave-clothes of one of their number  who is ill you may know that his end  is near.   I do not think that they do  anything to hasten the end, although  they may stab or hang the hopelessly  infirm at their    own request.    It appears     to   be  an  instinctive   feeling  which is common to primitive people  and which is often noticed in tlie lower animals- Wide World Magazine.  Inhaling Water  Undoubtedly r. number of--bathers  who arc drowned meet their death's,  from cramp. Cramp is,_liable to seize  anybody at any "moment, and when it  comes in deep water few swimmers  have sufficient presence of mind to  turn on their backs and wait quietly  until the attack has departed. So they  go unci or. B ut _ there is anpthsr danger  quite as imminent as cramp, though it  is probably less known. This is Water  inhaling. A swimmer or even a wader  is always liable to inhale spray  through his nostril-*, which; passing  through the pharyn : and behind the  epiglottis or windpipe guard, gets into the winclp-pc and causes death. As  one would expect. Avater -inhaling is  almost wholly confined to tlie sea and  very rarely occurs in fresh water. All  the same, it may happen anywhere.

Investing   in   Railway   Shares  Of the  39,313  shareholders  of - the  Pennsylvania^ road  49 per    cent, are  women.    Tlie increase in the number  of shareholders of the railways in the  United State.-j since 1904 has been 115  per cent. This shows the widespread  degree of interest that is taken by tho  people- themselves in the railways of  the country.    It is also an argument  for government generosity in dealing  with the railways in which so many  of the people have invested-their savings.

Coffee Keeps You Awake  In drawing a comparison between  .coffee and tfa the results show that  while the alkalrid caffeine hi coffee  is identical with that in tea, yet its  associations in coffee are quite different.

Here would appear to be the explan  aticn of the prompt action of coffee  as a restorative and stimulant, particularly when employed as an antidote to narcotic poisons.

A special number of the Weekly  Report of the department of trade and  commerce is being-issued covering an  interesting and valuable report upon  the possibility of Canadian trade with  China and Japan and prefaced by an  introduction by' Hon. Sir George E.  Foster, K.C.M.G-., M.P., minister of  trade and commerce, expressed In the  ��������� concise and vigorous English winch  characterizes the work of that gentleman. It deals with r. subject of grow?  ing interest to all Canadians and a  .-copy'should He on the desk cf every  merchant and producer in Canada and  should reach the hands of all who de-  . sire a* concise and picturesque statement of the coming trade of China  -. and Japan and o< the future and perhaps decisive importance of these  countries more particularly a3 regarc-s  -tlie western portion of Canada. Sir  George says: ��������� ��������� .  "Upwards ot 500,000,000 people inhabit China and Japan in a stretch of  island and continent facing our w.?st-  ern front doer. Between lies a facile  ocean now' beginning to quiver beneath the swift keels of rapidly increasing mercantile fieets. **���������* ���������*��������� On  all* ground*; of enlightened husines**  policy Canada and Canadians cannot  affords'to neglect the great ard promising field which lies so advantageous  iv opposite :ur western gateways tnd  which the Panama canal has brought  ���������bo much m-arer our eastern ports.  Tire report is written by Mr. R.  Griggl commissioner of commerce, and  is preceded by a letter of transmission  giving an outline of its contents de-  gcribin-g his journey, and concluding  with reflections of the character and  weight to w'lich we" have become ac:  customed bv hi J previous work. The  first chapter deals with the possible effect of the Pr.naiTi.- canal and piovides  " remarkahle figures-with regard to *he  development of traffic across the isthmus by the Panama and Tehuantepcc  railways. A table follows showing  Canadian exports to China and with  comments -ipc.-*. the character and  volume of-such exports. While the -**-  port recognjy.es the probable development of trade i a multitude of articles which lollow the establishment  of a trade route, and increase of communication, it is shown that tlie more  immediate ir.lerest to Canada is found  ��������� in .theexport of ."lour and lumber to  the Orient. Th.*? chapter dealing with  the first of these products indicates  the present oroduetior of (lour in the  ��������� western provinces; a table is given  showing the exports cf flour from tnc-  United States to the Orient for the  past twenty one years and instructive  comments are made upon the principal  figures. An interesting paragraph  "deals with the movoment northward  of the flour export upon the Pacific  coast and thc reason-: which account  for that movement. A full aigument  is produced based upon the production  of wheat an? flour in competing countries, more particularly Manchuria,  and remarkable information is afforded regarding the productivity of a soil  subject to irrigation and unlimited  labor under a hot sun. Th*** results  are truly, extraordinary and will be a  revelation to mf.ny readers. Important reference is made to the exporv  of lumber fiom Pritish Columbia and  the "final chapters deal with valuable  work being done by the consuls of all  nations and* also a reference to the  question of Chinese students and the  native press. In addition to its economic value the report provides interesting reading and amply justifies the  ' commendation of Sir George Foster.  The report upon J.xpan, which is printed in the Lame booklet and follows  that upon China, is equally interesting  although different conditions have resulted in totally different reports. Nothing is more remarkable than the  contrast between the two countries.  Whereas few figures are available  with regard to China a contrary condition prevails in Japan and interpretation of tlie economic condition of the  country is large? expressed bj tables  of figures, bvt the full and interesting  comment upon them removes die work  from the "dry as dust" character  which so commonly marks such papers. Canadians may sometimes forget  that the phenomena due to the wonderful deveopnifxt of their own country does not exhaust the important  problems in course of solution else-  Avhere and it is highly desirable that  development likely to provide a subject of engrossing future iuterest to  Canada should bo presented in brief  and graphic terms and handled in the  masterly fajWon found in this report.  It is not given to any man to do more  than suggest a possible outcome of the  factors in operation, and Canada has  some experience' of thc foreigner who  spends three weeks in a country and  writes a book. In China this is described as "seeing China through a porthole, "-but a characteristic of the report under review is the model ation of  Its expressions and the deference  ���������shown to the. experience of competent  authorities. It is impossible in a short  article to do more than suggest the excellence of Hie work and advise that  application should be made to the department of trade and commerce for  u copy which will be provided without  charge. The Weekly Report of that  department,  also "distributed  without  charge, should have an increase of its  already large circulation if only because it reflects in an adequate manner' economic conditions in foreign  countries and is designed to assist  Canadian export. The experience of  the United States illustrates the enormous value o*. such work, and the Canadian publi*; should not ,omit to encourage the efforts being made abroad  for their advantage and paid- for with  their money  BOOST  BC.  LUMBER  TRADE  Steamship Service to West Indies via  Panama Woidd Give Great Outlet for Lumber .  E. S. S. Flood, trade commissioner  for Barbadoes, in-his report to the department of trade and commerce,  states that tlie opening of the Panama  canal will enable shippers of lumber  from, British Columbia to compete  'with "the West lulies.  To satisfy inquiries a request has  been made to the trade department of  British Columbia to furnish sample-}  of the ��������� diffeven; varieties of lumber  that are commercial1}' important and  suitable for exportation.-  These shipments will be showed to  the"traders and -afterwards sent to  Trinidad, Jamaica and British Guinea  and "the Northern Islands. In this way  an opportunity will be afforded for a  comparison of. British Columbia lumber with that now imported. ***  The requirements of the British  West -Indies fo? lumber, shingles,  shooks, staves and puncheons, have an  average value of about two and a  quarter million o.. dollars. These colonies, with the exception of Jamaica,  give a preference to Canadian lumber.  A steamship service between British  Columbia and these colonies * that  would give an outlet for lumber and  other products o: Western Canada  would depend to a large extent on the  availability of return cargoes. Th3  products of the West Indies, that now  reach the preference market of Canada and that could make the voyage  to British Columbia without deterioration are su.ear arid molasses, cocoa  nuts and copra, coffee, molascuit and  green heart tir.ter. The examination  into the character of the trade between the e-.sterr. provinces and ths  West Indies forces thc conclusion that  an identical trade could be created for  the western provinces and one that  would in no' way bo an interference  with the' lunter now handled in the  east.   ^  The distarce from British Columbia  through the:Panama canal is roundly  about 4,000 miles and from the canal  to the Indies'. 1,000 miles.  Alfalfa vs. Wheat  A farmer near Saskatoon is said to  have seeded down 2,000 acres of alfalfa, stating -lhat he calculates one  acre.of alfalla is worth thirty acres of  wheat to lhe farmer. This man has  at present i 0,000 sheep, 200 horses,  and 1,000 cc*ws, and has 3,000 acres in  corn.  The fallacy that Saskatchewan is'  purely a wheat-raising country is fast  fading away in thc strong light of actual achieve rent in every branch of  field aud animal husbandry.  It is cheering to note also that Mie  Province of Alberta last year produced approximately $1.5,000,000 Worth  of eggs, poultry and milk, and from  this milk d*tiry products to the value  of practically $6,000,000 were produced, which is but another evidence  that the western '.rovinces are getting  on a much surer footing than before.  This Improvement in western tendency to go in* mere for stock-raisin?  and mixed farming will have the effect  of- stabilizing land values and will put  the farmer in possession of ready  money from., time to time through  small sales, where hitherto on a  strictly .yhe-it-farming proposition he  has had to wait-until a specific time  ���������when the harvest is in���������with consequent higher rates of interest on  money to carry him in the meantime,  and difficulty in financing.

RURAL DEPOPULATION  D SOI GAUS  DISREGARD   OK  THE   PRINCIPLES  OF   CONSERVATION   IS   ONE  OF  T.-jE   FACTORS  Lands Have Been Farmed With Utter  Disregard of the Possibility of th*.'  Exhaustion of Soil Fertility, and  Abandoned After Being Literally  "Mined."  The exodus of population from our  agricultural communities con.-.titutos  one of the most important phases of  that composite subject "so 'frequently  referred to under the vague but con  venient term, "the rural problem."  The admirable analysis of this question of rura'i depopulation, given by  Rev. John MacDougall in his book entitled "Rura*. Lifo hi Canada." is of  patricular interest to the advocate of  conservation, in that it emphasizes tlie  close connection, between the proper  use' of national resources and the  maintenance of a large and prosper  ous rural population. Nations hay a,  hitherto, failed to realize the full im-  ,-portance of ilm relation and their failure to do so has been a costly and irreparable error.  "Conservation,': referring to the  wise use of a country's natural resources, is a word of no narrow mean  ing. It ritah-is. first and foremost, for  the elimination of waste and extravagance in res:, ecc to those resources  which are limited in supply, and for  the propaag'.ion of those which, al  though limited, are reproducible. Rur  it means more that. that. It stands fo.-"  economy in Hie "entire .field of production,, as well as in consumption,���������for  the utilization of all portions of the  national domain -in such a manner as  to.secure the maximum return there  from. These .are the cardinal principles which former generations disregarded and which the present ha**,  not yet learnt to appreciate thoroughly. They" become fully ; realized only  when the res.ultj or! disregard tire manifested in such tangible forms as the  present wholesale abandonment of  once:thriving agricultural cemmuuj-  ties. For this movement of population  the failure to observe the piinciplea  of conservation hasl: not been wholly  responsible, hut ;.t has contributed in  two ways. ;  Primarily, there has been" - the-  reckless exploration of wooded areas  which were never of a nature to justify agricultural settlement. Lands,  with soil adapted only for lorestry  purposes, have been stripped of timber, exhausted by a few crops and  abandoned in such condition as to be  almost uselers even for reforestation  From start to finish the policyJ.pur-  sued ~has b;*:en ruinous to T_atiohal  welfare.  Secondly���������land.', which were ong  inally of real tgricultural value have  been farmee with utter disregard of  the possibility* of the exhaustion of  soil fertility: Under scientific methods of cultivation, they would have  been permanently available for profitable agricu'iure; "but when literally  "mined" of "ieir fertility, have been  deserted for newer and more fertilo  areas. Such methods may. enrich th'j  individual, but never the nation.  Failure to practise conservation  methods-In bygone years is not the  sole cause cf rural depopulation .today, but it is. probably, the only cn-i  of the several causes, to which that  movement U due, which need occasion  regret to the present generation anl  reproach to cuv ancestors. Most of  the other economic causes have increased the productive efficiency o'i  the nation;. this ������������������ has immeasurably  lowered it.--OM., in Conservation.

Owing     to     thc     Increasing   Modern  Taste   For Travel,  Striking  Scenery  Has Become One of the Most Valu-  . able  Sot.rces  of  Revenue  a   Nation  Can Possess.  An unusual government publication,  has ftcently been issued by the Dominion parUs.- hranch of the department of the interior. It consists of a  small souvenir booklet artistically  .bound' in duplex leather wild grass  paper and , lied with an olive green  silk cord. The lettering is cnibososd  in gold and a very unique' design has  been chosen fo.* the cover. The latter  is cut out so as to form a sort of  frame and In this is inset a spray of  Canadian heather from* the Rocky  Mountains park, the purplish llowera  of the hsather against the wood-  brown background making a very attractive colour combination.  It will no doubt be a matter of surprise to many to learn that Canada  possesses a heather of her own. Thin  plant is not, as it has sometimes been  called, a "poor relation" of the Scotch  heather,''but-lias a family connection  and standing of its own well recognized by botanists, and is nearly allied to the heath of the British Isles.'  The booklet gives an interesting account of the locality from which the  souvenir was gathered, Simpson pass,  about thirty.'miles from Banff/and of  some of the legends and stories connected with the heather in other  lands. Its main -purpose, however, is to  call the attention of Canadians to the  national parks pi.' the. Dominion, not  only to the attractions they offer to  those who aie able to visit them, but  also to then value; in the rational  life. Their commercial-potentialities  are somewhat-'startling.'It is pointed  out that owing to the increasing modern taste for travel, striking scenery  has become one of the most valuabla  sources of levenuo a nation can possess. The tourist revenue of Switzer-'  land per yeai is placed at 150 million  dollars, that of France'-at 600 millions,  that of Italy at over 100 millions. The  sum which Americans annually spend  abroad is estimated at the enormous  total of five lunared million dollars.-  It .would appear, therefore, that the  creation of national parks, which are  one of the best means of attracting  and providing for tourist travel, may  well be considered as it is now being  considered ;.i tlie United States, as a  "solid busincss'-proposition."  It is on othe*, grounds than the  commercial, however, lhat the parks  lay claim to recognition. These great  | natural reserves are reservoirs of vitality for th? race. As an antidote to  the ills of over-civilization and the  complex life of modern cities, they offer the cppoitunity for life in the wilderness and ;he best sort of recreation  where fresh air, sunshine and beautiful natural scenery are combined. The  problem of trie preservation of the vitality of the race is admitted by a'l  conservationist, today, to be the first  of all conservation problems, and tha  value of parks, playgrounds and recreation in ihij respect is each year  being given a lerger place.  The educational r.nd patriotic influence of the parks ir. also touched  upon as weil as the worlc which tha  Dominion pa"*k? branch is doing in tha  preservation of uativ.- wild life in connection with the buffalo, elk, antelope,  etc., as well us bird life. There is also  pointed ou': the need for the creation  of historic varks a': a. mean." of preservation fo" our historic sites, man/  of which wc ar_ allowing to disappear.  A new lir.e of development which  is worthy of consideration is suggested, viz.: the provision of national  parks near our.congested centres of  population All modern town planning  makes provision for parks and playgrounds wit'iin the city itself, but  while these ���������"���������r-s useful and necessary  they provide a means of recreation for  a few hours, at most. The national  parks would reserve large areas where  people would be free to go for as long  as they desired. Such'parks would be,  in reality, "people'r- estates" and  would afford tc the ordinary citizen  many of the advantages which the  man of wc-.iith possesses in his coun-  t.y estate. In thc words of the booklet they would be "places where the  liool* could so', a summer cottage or  camp site fo.* a nominal rental where  hoys and mop could camp and fish ana  study nature, where the sick and delicate could f.nd low Hiores of health  in tlie great out-of-doors, by right of  citizenship, without leave or hindrance of an>one."  There is :ill within easy reach of  many of on large cities, land available for suc-i a purpose which is either public domain or procurable at low  cost. It wor.hl seem worth while considering tho advice yiven by Ambassador Uryce in Ottawa, before his return to England, namely, that, the  time to set aside public domain for  the future naedr, of tl.c people is now,  not when the encroachments of civilization luv-j rendered this almost impossible.

They are  going to need such things as clothing,  fuel, etc.. too, aud a surprising lot of  them.will go on' buying luxuries, as  well.  The bottom hasn't fallen out of  trade. 'On the contrary a new bottom has been put in. Live advertisers are going after the new business,  new markets, new fields made possible  by this great and. unfortunate war.  Just as modern methods of warfare  will add new efficiency, new features  to this war, so modern methods of  sellidg���������through ival advertising and  merchandising���������will add new effic  iency to the .commercial effort set in  motion by the war.  American manufacturers  have  discovered that owing to the shutting off  of German exportations rhey   have   a  brand new market at their  doors   for  such commodities as chemicals, drugs,  medicines, copper and    manufactures,  cotton goods, earthen stone and china-  ware,    glass     and     glassware,    malt  liquors, spirits, wines,    silk   manufac  tures,   fruit   and   nuts, gloves;    em  broidery, hats, steel and   iron    tnanu  factu res, toys. etc.  The American advertisers are readjusting themselves with wonderful  rapidity and are redoubling their efforts to secure new trade heretofore  denied them. Those, who hesitate  will lose a; tremendous opportunity  and be handicapped for months, perhaps years, to come.  What about us Canadians?  6% .MONEY 6% MONEY 6%  Loans may be obtained for any  purpose on acceptable Real Estate security; liberal privileges; correpond  ence solicited.

To'follow intelligently the European  war situation and keep in touch with  the lightening movement of the troops  a comprehensive war map of Europe  giving all details is essential.  Of all the maps issued there is but  one that fills the bill, and that is the  one issued specially by the celebruted  map makers, G. \V. Bacon & Co.,  London, Eng.  The publishers of The Family Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal, al- .  ways 'alive to the best interests of  their subscribers, the moment the map  was issued, cabled an offer for Canadian rights of the map.- Their offer-  has been accepted, and Family Herald subscribers will have the best  map available.  The Grand Forks -Sun has concluded arrangements with "The Family  Herald and Weekly Star by which  our readers may also secure the map  free of charge. In this issue will be  found a clubbing' offer of the two  papers, including the map. The offer  is one that every reader of The Sun  should accept.  Newspapers are paying dearly for  the war. The price of paper is going '  up, up, up! "'"  cablegrams has increased  50-per cent. Scores of * newspapers  have suspended publication, and hundreds'of others have raised the subscription price. For the present The  Family Herald and Weekly Star of  Montreal, being in an exceptionally  strong position, is able for the present,  at all events, to keep its rate as formerly, but an increase later on may become necessary.
