Plans ���������were  made to canvass the city  again   be  fore   the   close   of   the year with a  view    to   obtaining   increased   sub  scriptions.    The executive committee met on Monday evening.  The Power of Silence  A   good    deal   of   power is   with  those who talk least.    Listen   to the  ,ebb and How of conversation   round  mercial fertilizers in British   Colum  bia, the foremost authority on   agriculture  in   this  province suggested  recently that the government should  make use of some of   the  abundant  water power available in going   into  the business of making fertilizer nut  of the air, says the Vancouver   Sun.  All    that   is  - necessary is a government appropriation for the building  of a hydro electrical plant   for making nitrates with nitrogen  .extracted  from the air.  Nitrates are   used in making high  explosives such as are used in firing  the great guns in   modern   warfare  Such a plant could add to the   sup  ply  of   nitrates   available   for   tbe  manufacture of munitions and   also  provide cheap fortilizer.    When the  war is over its entire product could  be  used   as. fertilizer.    The    most  valuable   fertilizer   in    the world is  nitrogen.   Unitil   it  was discovered  that nitrogen could be - taken    from  the air the  soil   -was  given nitrogen  through the application   of   nianuie  and    other    fertilizers    containing a  large percentage of it.     But    in   tbe  last few years   tbe   manufacture   of  nitrates with   nitrogen from the  air  has been developed on a large   scale  in Europe.  The process is simple.    Thpre is a  great electric arc in which the air is  heated taa tremendous degree. Now,  air is made up principally of oxygen  and nitrogen. Oxygen will burn but  nitrogen will not."   So air is    passed  through this super-heated   spot   between the poles of  the   electric   art:  and the oxygen is burned out   of it;  What remains is nitric oxide.    This  is   then   mixed with air and the re  suit is twice as much nitrogen as be  fore to tbe same amount of   oxygen  Water   is   added   and the result is  nitric acid, which may be    used    in  1 the manufacture   of explosives.     If  it had to be used as fertilizer, lime  stone is treated with it, and the   re  suit   is   nitrate of   lime, which may  be mixed directly with the soil   and  is the greatest fertilizer   known.    It  is   equal    t">   the   famous nitrate of  soda from Chile.  smelted 780,524 tons of copper ore  at Grand Forks and 620,090 tons  at Anyox.

Johnson, who has a line  of traps  along the Kettle river about a hundred   miles   north of  Grand'Forks,  was making his   rounds    when, late  one   afternoon    he   discovered   the  cabin ' on   the   mountain side.    He  decided to pitch camp for the night  and ^vith that object in view entered  the cabin.    He   started   a   fire and  was   preparing   his meal when, by  the light of the llau.es, his attention  was   attracted    by   a   huge  pile of  leaves and rubbish in   the corner of  the room. Closer  investigation   disclosed tbe body   of  a man,   practically muniiiied by   the   dry mountain air, and "shrunken  entirely   beyond lecogmlion.  The   .man   had "died    with   bis -  boots   on," and    from    'ippearaoces  had been dead at least   a year, possibly much longer.  Kindly pack rats had conducted  the burial service In the way they .  know. The body was completely  covered from head to foot, without,  as might have been expected, being  disturbed in any way.  - Early next morning Johnson proceeded to Edgewood, the nearest  point of communication with the  outside world, and notified the pro  vincial constable at Nakusp.  Constable J. M. Johnson left   for  the scene, accompanied   by   Walter  Johnson, a local hunter.    They will  investigate and seek to establish the.  identity of the dead man.  In the meantime conjecture is  rife, Johnson having reported that there was nothing on the  body of the dead man to furnish a  clue as to his name or manner of  death.  A possibility is suggested that the  body may be that   of   an    Austrian  i who esciped lrom    the   internment  camp a' Fdgewood  a year ago.  Another theory is that the body-  is that of one of two brothers- from  Deer Park, who disappt-artd while  on a hunting trip in the neighborhood of the cabin three years ago  and was never heard from again.  Owing to the rough nature of the  country and the hardships attendant upon such an undertaking tbe  body will most likely not be brought  out, but will bo buried near the  cabin.  picion.that they .let it an   enu  men i   and there.

C  A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS PER PLUG'  Development of  Western Industries  Dr  Milton   Hcrsey   Returns   From  Industrial.     Research      Trip  Through the West  On his arrival here after a tour  through the West for purposes of industrial research, Dr. Milton Hcrsey,  of Montreal, states that the greatest  opportunity of the prairie provinces  now lies in the manufacture of soaps  and fertilizers and the gradual development of tlic flax and paper industries, says the Winnipeg Telegram. - :   .        .  .'J his progress, he says, however, is  contingent upon cheap fuel and urges,  that fuel  possibilities be improved.  On the west coast, Dr. : Hersey  fays, the chief opportunity now lies  in ihc development of the iron industry.  Dr. Hcrsey undertook the present  trip chiefly at the instance of the-  Canadian Northern and Grand. Trunk  railways to investigate industrial possibilities in the West and so encourage development and progress. He  is also treating the situation in a  general way, however,and has cs-  lablishcd large offices and labora-  ic-res in- Winnipeg, .where industrial  research work will be caerrid on with  a view to assisting industrial enterprises, in improving and cheapening  their practise.      ���������  Dr. Hersey says that the west coast  badly needed the iron industry developed. "They have superb ore  there," he said, and the best of coal  ���������but no iron or steel works.  "They- have everything in. their  favor now to make pig-iron cheaper  than in the United States. All that  is required is capital, and courage to  effect     a  wonderful  development.  "The ore is not surpassed even by  tlie Michigan ore, and their fuel :s  already   world   renowned."  Dr. Hcrsey spoke highly of, ..���������.the  feeling among the business men at  the-coast.... There, is a general feeling of confidence that indicated a  substantial improvement in condi-.  lions, he said.  Many of the business men in Vancouver, loo, realize the need, for just  s:icli development as that outlined.  They believe in the great mineral  wealth of the province and arc eager  to have it developed.  The copper industry is being pushed ahead just now, Dr. Hcrsey said,  and good progress is being made.  An interesting phase of development is the smelling of zinc. This is  a new industry in Canada during the  past year. The quality, Dr. Hcrsey  said, is excellent and impurities are  negligible. .,      -  "The zinc industry," he said, "has  undoubtedly come to slay.- So far,  however, there are no zinc smellers  anywhere in Canada save at Trail."  In the prairie provinces Dr. Hersey regarded the manufacture of  soaps, fertilizers and the gradual development of the paper and flax; .industries' as the principal opportunities. These, however, arc contingent  on cheap fuel.  "The coal situation must be developed," he said. "There arc large  deposits and it should be greatly improved. The Saskatchewan and Alberta lignites must be developed  and ways found for using them."  Dr. Hcrsey pointed out that there  were large deposits of pilch in Northern Alberta.  "1 expect these to become a great  source of revenue," he said, "but wc  need now to determine what they arc  best suited for."  His firm, he said, had already commenced experiments in Montreal with  v view to determining this question.  He had recently received the contract lo supervise all the paving-  work of the city of Montreal.  Another possibility of the prairies  is the development of the clay industries, Dr. Hcrsey continued. In the  provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan there are enormous deposits of  all kinds of clay from kaolin or china  clay to the best of fire clay, as well  ^s the commoner varieties. From  ccrtaiii of these clays, particularly  the kaolin, the very best of china can  be made.  Since the establishment of his Winnipeg offices and laboratories, Dr.  Mersey's relations with the West, always close, arc likely to becom-;  deeper and his work of industrial research may be expected to bring '.o  light interesting discoveries and rediscoveries of western treasures from  nine lo lime.  Sanity in Education  Benefits of Technical Training as Exemplified in Germany  Commenting on the German system of technical education, which he  strongly advises other nations lo  adopt, Lord Haldanc, the unions  British  educationalist,   says:  "Germany has induced employers  to co-operate, and they now appear  lo have realized the advantages over  their competitors which they will derive from a wide and constant inflow  into the work of youths highly trained in the special requirements of the  business 'in. which they arc wanted.  The. employers contribute to the  special schools and take an actual  part in their management. The  teachers are partly schoolmasters  and partly foremen tramed to teach.  "The object of the employer is to  get a highly-trained man. The object  of the state is to get :that inaii well  Trees as Snow Guards  Railways  Planting Trees  to  Protect  Lines from Drifting Snow  and   Sand  ���������-The railways of Canada arc talcing  an increasing interest in the planting  of trees and shrubs lo secure belter  control of drifting snow and drifting  sand, both of which interfere seriously with the operation of trains.  East of Montreal near Vauclusc, in  .Quebec, light drifting sand has given  trouble to the Canadian. Pacific Railway since the very thin sod was  plowed up. Hot', boxes "resulted to  rolling stock and passengers suffered'  from dust. The ordinary right-of-  way fence was covered by the sand,  and cattle could stray out on the  track. Snow fences were us'cd lo  some advantage, but -in a bad season  these would.be. almost covered up.  ���������In   1915   a  number  of  grasses,  in  chiding   -Brbmc,  were   ..planted,   >ut  Netting" an Enemy  Under Sea Boat  prepared -and .educated  for his  duty.jperished from the heat,-which- is ex  as a citizen.-The new type of school,  fashioned on the Kerschcnsteiner  plan, aims at accomplishing these  combined purposes. These schools  are of varieties as regards instruction corresponding to the varieties  of trades. There are, schools for  young metal workers, for wood workers, for engineers, plumbers, masons,  butchers, bakers, waiters and other  occupations, including those of  women.  "The employer is compelled by law  to send the young wage earners in  his works to the appropriate school  for a number, of hours, which are taken out of the working times instead  of-.the evening. In this way construction comes while the mind is still  fresh. The'system is a modern substitute for apprenticeship.- The.employers in Germany appear to be  welcoming it, and the adult workman is glad to be relieved from the  ���������intrusion of the unskilled.  "I will illustrate the working of the  system from'Munich itself as it was  before the war. It is said that in that  city,with its 600,000 inhabitants, all  the'boys, with the exception of about  8.per cent., when they left' the elementary school at 14 went at" once  lo be taught trades '.which-,lhey- had  chosen...Theyv then .attended during  the next four years a special and  compulsory trade continuation school  which combined practical and theoretical "work' for from eight to ten  hours a week taken out of working  hours. At the end of the four vears  many of them went on with voluntary instruction in higher technical  schools, outside working hours.  "And there is another point with  regard to the German system. It  aims at applying the boy to the work  to which his mind is particularly  bent; At the age of 14 the schoolmaster will ask him: "What would  you like your work in life to be?"  The boy thinks of a number of things  and casts his mind over the subject  in life which appeals to him most.  The majority of boys like to make  something or another and most have  a talent for construction in some material.  "The boy may answer: "I would  like lo make knives.' The schoolmaster will reply: 'Would you like  to make a knife now?' The boy  naturally wants to. There and then  lie is taken off to a factory and allowed, with the help of a workman,  to make a knife from the first process to the last. That is his initiation  into technical  education."  "Doctor,   my   brother  stepped   in   a  ole and wrenched his knee, and now  Iie limps     What  would vou  do  in r-.  CH.sc  like   that?"  "I'm  afraid   I   should limp,   too!"  Parrot 52 Years Without Water.  A man charged before a London  magistrate for cruelty lo two goats  by keeping them tethered away from  water, ��������� pleaded in excuse that goats  never drink  water.  This is not so. Goats do drink,  though very sparingly. There arc,  however,- at least two species of gazelles that have never been known to  drink; and it is certain that unless  the huanacoes, or wild Llamas of  Patagonia drink sail water, in many  localities they must drink none at all.  The large and interesting group of  sloths are alike in never drinking. A  parrot is recorded to have lived for  52 years without a drop of water. >  ll is often said that rabbits in a  wild slate never drink.. .This is in a  sense correct, but they feed on the  grass when it is heavy with dew, and,  therefore, practically drink when eating. Sheep require little or no water  in the autumn and winter, when they  are feeding on turnips.  cessive on these exposed sand beds.  This spring, 3,500 cuttings of cotton-  wood ,(Populus deltoides) and 1,000  one-year transplanted jack pines were  planted. An examination made after  the trees: and cuttings were in the  ground a month showed that approximately 95 per cent, were making-  good progress. ~  The cottonwod was placed in rows  two and one-half feet apart, the distance between the rows being four  feet. The. jack pine was planted in  rows six_ feet apart, distance between  the rows being five feet. The distance from the. last row to the centre  of-the "track is about 150 feet. All  the planting parallels the track.  It is hoped that the vigorous  growth of the cottonwood will protect the jack pine uiitil-such lime as  the latter can take care of itself. If  results prove satis factory, other situations along the company's line will  be planted in the near future. The  unusual amount of rain which has occurred this spring and.early summer  has contributed very materially to  the prospects of success.  For a permanent snow fence which  would grow- rapidly and have sufficient foliage, 6,000 Norway spruce and  15;000 caragana were planted.'"'The  former were five-year transplants, of  from 20 to 24 inches height, of heavy  sturdy crown and well-developed  root system. The/ caragana were  from 30 to 48 inches in height and  about three years of age. The caragana, as well as 1,500 lilacs used in  mixture for snow breaks,' are from  the nursery of the company at Wol-  seley,  Sask.  The following methods of planting were carried out: Where the distance from, the track to the right-  of-way fence is over 50 feet, a "standard" break was put in, viz., one row  of spruce was planted 8 feet apartj  and in front of this, caragana were  placed two and one-half feet apart.  The distance between the rows is. 6  feel. If there was only 50 feet between the track, and the fence, one  row of Norway spruce was planted  6 feet apart, or two rows of.caragana  4 to 6 feet apart. On several situations one row of caragana was planted.    ..-.-..  The open-grown Nofwaj' spruce is  the best tree that can be used for  snow breaks in Eastern Canada. It  is of rapid growth, is comparatively  free from enemies, and branches  close to the ground. It will require  protection from fire. It is expected  thai the Norway spruce -will be effective as a snow break alone in five  years.  Caragana arborcscens, the Siberian  pea tree, when  well  Irimmcd, at its  present    height ought    to  provide a  good mesh for snow break the second   all   nations.���������Worcester   Telegram.  year    after    planting.

That they  make these undersea boats over and  send them out as English submarines  to torpedo other craft of the encn)y  is taken for granted, though it is not  admitted in the official report. Worcester men may have made some of  the wire in the traps which have captured the German and Austrian submarines, and there may be some satisfaction in that part.- of the work.  Englishmen wjiosc duty is to lake in  the trapped diving boats do not like  the work. It- is the most .gruesome  of all the ghoulish business of 'the  great war in Europe, they claim.  Aji English doctor who has been  with - tlie "rescue" crews, tells ' the  story, but, he'admits there is: no sense,  of rescue about it, for nothing isdone  to raise the; submarine from the"trap  until air on board are dead and i it is  the most horrible of all the-deaths of  war, ���������:. the doctor claims. --When"''a submarine; strikes one of the thousands  of wire nets -set all around the '-Brit-:  is,h Isles, there is noknown means of  escape. ;' .Every move of , the boat  means more mixing up with the enmeshed wires. And the wires also  'telegraph, the capture to a naval station automatically. Then a destroyer  boat hurries to the trap like a hunter  who discovers that game has been  caught in^lis deadfall. The destroyer  takes a position above the submerged  boat.:..-. ..���������-'���������.   ':.'���������-.���������'.-������������������.  And the doctor is still more 'graphic in further description. "Then  there is nothing to do but wait,  sometimes for hours, sometimes for  days. Officers and rnen of the waiting vessel know what's going on  down in the green depths. They  know that in time bubbles will come  to the surface and oil will spread  over the sea. The destroyer waits  for the bubbles, 'death bubbles,' they  call them, for they tell of death  struggles going on in the submarine."  That may seem simple to people who  never tried it, and of course an - Eng-  lishman should 'not bother about .how;  much aii enemy of his country suffers  in- war time.  Still men arc all more or less  human in their thoughts, if not in  their acts, and the doctor says it is  frightful there over an expiring  corps of men who are experts in the  worst kind of warfare practised. They  suffer until the horrible end, and in  some cases it appears that the waiting men safe about them suffer more  and longer until the death bubbles  rise to the top and show through the  oil, and then the hoisting^ crane  comes and lifts up .the submarine and  the net and the disentanglement takes  place.  And you may expect lo read what  the    English    naval    men. find in the  German  submarine.      On  that  point  the doctor says: "Seamen who fought  through    the    malestrom    of Skager  Rac will tell you their story, but no  sailor speaks of the sights seenjn a  recovered submarine.    Those    sights  make strong men weak    and    drive  sensitive men delirious  with horror."  1 hen  there is something about    the  war which is not allowed even to get  as far as the censors.    It is too horrible for the observers to talk about.  And sailors are not as a rule .squeamish.      For    that    reason    and    some  others, it is probably not    true that  for months, as the cable reports have  it, the German people have been urging the Imperial Government to turn  the    submarines    loose    to do their  worst  with   the peaceful  shipping of  the Potato  Early   History Associated   With tlu  Elizabethan Period  hardy, free from insect activities, not  attacked b.y cattle, of quick growth  and beautiful foliage.

A  year ago ten British submarines, the  parts of which were made in the United States, voyaged without mishap  from Montreal to Portsmouth, 3,600  miles. To be sure, there were no  German warships which could attack  them, and they had the convoy of  one or more British cruisers. In  sending submarines from their home  ports to the Dardanelles both Germany and Great Britain long ago  made marvellous long distance records.���������-The Outlook.  Belgium in Africa.  The Belgians arc playing a powerful part in the conquest of Germany's, last colony, in East Africa,  in  conjunction with  British  forces.  It will be remembered that the  Belgians began the general offensive  in May. Since then they have established themselves on two of Ihc  great lakes, Victoria Nyanza and  Lake Tanganikyt, after having destroyed the German defenses on the  latter. They have also driven the  Germans    completely    from  territory  who are    glad to have   a change of j    "Friends,"    Ko  cqu  gium  mark each occasion on which wounded.

When Sir Walter Raleigh- decorated his already ovcr-dccoralcc'l  Elizabethan tunic with a- potato)  blossom, people suspected that back'  of it all there was a mild form ol  lunacy.  But when he ale the tubers and  also recommended others to do the  same they changed their minds, thai  is they no longer considered il -i.  mild form.  .The potato belongs to the same  family of plants as the deadly nightshade, which is extremcl}' poisonous.  .We know it to be a common notioK  in medieval times that if one member of a family were guilty of crime  the whole lot were eligible for punishment. Consequently .the potato  was condemned.  : -Could Sir Walter have looked forward two or three hundred years and  have seen his pet tuber taking first  place in popularity among vegetables,  could* he have known ' that in thr  twentieth century it would furnish" a  quarter of the food eaten -by the  while race, he would have based hip  hope of posthumus fame not upon his  ability lo soothe the somewhat peppery temper of his sovereign with  shiploads of Spanish gold, but upon  his potato patch.  The potato is put lo a greater variety of uses than is any other vegetable. An Irishman once .selected  a bushel of them as a duelling weapon, with the result that "before hal!  were used his antagonist ran away.   .

Soon housewives began to "wonde;  how they had ever, succeeded-in preparing the family dinner without th>  aid of the now most popular of vce-  tables.

In the first two days he brought  in twenty-two who had been badly  wounded, and three were actually  killed -while he was ' dressing their  wounds; then next clay he took charge  of a party of volunteers and once more  went out to bring, in those who remained.

Invented by an American officer,  Col. Lewis, and made in Belgium almost up to the moment when the German scouts entered the city of its manufacture, the invention narrowly  escaped capture by the Germans.  Its killing power'may be gauged  from the fact that in one trench recently one,of these guns, manned by  a crew of two men, accounted for 330  Germans in half an hour.  ���������     BABY'S WELFARE  The welfare of the baby is the fond  mother's ' greatest aim.

When you feel worn, tired and  run down the chances are ten to one  that your kidneys are at fault.  , When the kidneys become clogged  or out of order, the circulation becomes sluggish, the impurities are not  strained out of the blood and the result is weariness and lack of energy  all over the body.  This condition is not only disagreeable but dangerous as well. The impurities in the blood are the seeds of  disease. If they are not removed  Rheumatism, Lumbago. Gravel, Dropsy, Diabetes, or Bright's Disease may  result.  Guard against those diseases and  get back your accustomed energy by  using Dodd's Kidnev Pills.

The result robs the Conservatives of the belief that  the adherents of their party are maintaining,  almost single-handed, so to speak, the honor  of the province on the firing line. It also dissipates the fear expressed by some Liberal  speakers and newspapers during the campaign  that the vote would not be honestly taken.  The threatened strike of the railway employees was averted at the eleventh hour. .The  people would never have forgiven the C.P.R.  if it had allowed the men to walk out, and thus  crippled the industries of the country through  lack of transportation facilities. The big corporation is making more profits at present  than it knows what to do with, and it is nothing but just that it should give a small portion  of its huge earnings to its employees.  If the price of the metals rise much higher,  it is not improbable that mining, instead of  being regarded as a gamble, as it was in for-  mer days, will be looked upon as a perfectly  safe and legitimate investment.  there���������it gets bigger and bigger."

A cool wind was sweeping away the clouds  on the horizon, and the golden streaks were  fast fading into silver. The moon and the  stars came out, and night hid the horrors of  the day. . Suddenly, out of the night came the  voice of tho little soldier:  "Your hand, nurse; it will help me take the  stride."  His eyes glowed and he held me fast. "I  died that they might live again." And then, as  if transported: "Yes, Iain going to live." And  raising himself with a strength I had thought  long since gone, he cried,, in a clear, strong-  voice, "Long live England."  The living heard, and it justified the smiles  on the faces of the dead. He fell back into  my arms and I laid him on the ground that  he had conquered.���������Alice Thayer in the Outlook, New York.  Prices of the necessaries of'life are soaring  in the clouds. A government investigation  and the punishment of those guilty of exacting  extortionate prices might have a salutary effect. If the government has the right fix the  price of railway fares in time' of peace, it  should be privileged to set the price of foodstuffs in war times.  People who have money to give to further  the cause of the allies, can give it to no  worthier organization than the Canadian Pa-  triotic fund.

Thirteen cheese factories turned out  372,003 lbs. of cheese, compared with  70,581 lbs. made in five factories.during 1914. An interesting feature in  connection with the cheese production  is that 50 per cent, of the past season's  output was manufactured in the city  dairies of Calgary and Edmonton.  The creamery business of the province also made marked progress during the year, the creamery butter production being 7.400,000 lbs., compared  with 5,450,000 lbs. for tho previous  year.

In its circulation through the  body the blood not only carries nutrition to the cells arid tissues, but also  collects' the waste material resulting  from the breaking down of cells and  tissues, the ashes left by; the fire of  life.  In due course the blood passes  through the kidneys to be purified of  these poisonous impurities, and these  filtering organs extract each, day  about 50 ounces of   liquids  and 2  i  ounces of solids, 500 grains of urea  and 10 grains of uric acid, the material which is- found in rheumatic  joints.  Sudden changes of temperature  throw a "great strain on'the kidneys,  but it is overeating and drinking  that arc the usual cause of trouble.  In a vain effort to remove the excess  of waste matter, the kidneys break  down, uric acid and other poisons are  left in the blood and the whole system is poisoned by impure blood.  Pains in the back and limbs,  severe headaches, lumbago and rheumatism are the natural result. Hardening   of   the   arteries,   excessive  blood pressure, weakening of the  heart's action, Bright's disease may be anticipated unless prompt, action, is taken.

C  GERMAN DESPOTISM VERSUS MODERN DEMOCRACY  Harvard University Professor Has Issued a Denunciation of the  Atrocious War Waged by the Hohenzollerns, in Which He  Expresses No Doubt As To How the Struggle Will End    ' ,o���������= : .  Over the imprint of the Houghton-  Mifflin Company of Boston, -and under the title "Germany versus Civilization," has just appeared one of the  most effective denunciations of the  "atrocious war" waged by German  despotism against modern democracy. The author, William Roscoc  ��������� Thayer, has long been closely identified with Harvard University,. and  is an historical writer of established  repute. From first to last his monograph deals not with the military  events, but with the fundamental issues at stake, and the evolution of  Germany which made her ready for  such an attempt at world domination.  .With him the conclusion of the  whole matter is this:  "Those of us who believe in civil-J  ization know that liberty, the soul of  , democracy,    is the condition without  . which, permanent  spiritual  good   can  neither'spring up nor thrive.    In its'  - deathless presence the lmp'erial lusts  -of   the .Hohenzollerns,   like   the  Empires of those who were greater than  they,  are seen  in   their  true  nature:  material,  mundane,   mortal."}  On the minds of those who have  retained their essential' humanity the  effect of such.'.an. exposition.is'.inevitably .������������������obsessive and depressive. The  Prussian ization of Germany is here  traced as a process which tends to  deepen the gloom hanging over the  future , of "a State that might, have  ' been a potent factor in the uplift of  humanity and in the progress of civilization. So far from having been  drawn in too strong colors, the sketch  by Mr. Thayer might have been made  still more sombre by.taking into view  the existence of the Holy . Roman  Empire for practically a thousand  years before Prussia experienced her  modern revival, prior to the battle of  Waterloo. Fromthat time on it became an issue between Hohenzollern  ' and Hapsburg which should dominate the German area in Europe. Bismarck and Sadowa "settled the matter in ' favor of Prussia, and thus  doomed both States lo a common  moral destruction. Their coalition  in this unprecedented double suicide  will always be the greatest of all historical ironies.  ���������  Mr., Thayer has no lingering doubts  as   to how the    gigantic struggle is  going to end, any. more than he has  questionings as  to  Prussia's  motives  or as to the diabolism of her kultur,  which shuts  out alike    justice, freedom,    pity    and    chivalry.      "Under  whatever    name  kultur    Operates,  it  tends. downwards.       The    individual  who    thinks himself    a superman  is  likely to ��������� end  in   a  madhouse  or  on  the    gallows;    the    nation,    despotic  King, or hierarchy which substitutes  its   own  selfish   interests  for  humanity  shuts  itself out    from humanity,  becomes    inhuman,- revives and worships  standards    of  the  Beast,    and  heads straight for perdition."  ' The part played by his own country in this awful contest for suprem  acy^between Prussian kultur and human      civilization    arouses    in    Mr.  Thayer a feeling of contemptuous indignation, that  finds   expression  in  a  torrent - of    burning invective.      He  tears to shreds all'pleas, for neutrality in tlie face of such alternatives as  Germany  has   presented   to  America  in the absolutely unprovoked and un-  mitigatedly brutal  treatment  of Belgium, and unhesitatingly alleges that  if Germany's    course    had not been  checked  in  Belgium  and  stopped in  France she would have tried to overthrow    Great    Britain  ajid    overrun  America.���������Toronto Globe.  Anti-Hailstorm Cannon  Britain's Meat Supplies  An Invisible Clock.  A public clock which can be heard  but not seen is onc-of London's curious possessions. It is in the tower  of St. Mary Abbot's Church, Kensington,, and is the only public clock  in the immediate neighborhood. It  chimes the quarters and the hours,  but commits itself no further. It  has no dial, no hands, no outward  and visible sign of any kind to show  that it is a clock. This eccentricity,  it is explained, is the result of two  causes, one aesthetic, the other financial. When the tower was built in  1897 a clock was suggested as an  afterthought, but the architect protested that it would mean the addition of 15 feet to the tower, and the  ruin of its cherished proportions. A  second point was that the church,  having but slender funds, could not  afford a clQck with a dial. A compromise was arrived at by installing  the works of a chiming clock in ihc  belfry without dial or hands.  *-���������      .   "How long did you stay in your  last place?"

Used Successfully in European C.oun-  ��������� - tries to Protect Growing  Crops  While the guns of the European  armies arc thundering .'incessantly, on  many battlefields in their mission  of killing men and destroying man's  works, the grape, cultivators of  France, in their turn, are using artillery to good advantage. But theirs  is "not destructive artillery; ..they are  using guns only to protect their  vineyards against the destructive effects of hailstorms, which arc not infrequent in the grape growing districts.  Anti-hailstorm guns cannot be said  to be novelties in the strictest sense  of the- word, for they date back to  1896, when an Austrian named Slie-  ger who had had an opportunity of  witnessing the devastation caused by  hailstorms each year in districts of  his country, conceived the idea of firing a cannon shot at the clouds charged withjiail, using an artillery piece  of special design. Stieger learned  that as a result of artillery ��������� fire, directed against the clouds, the threatened storm moved elsewhere before  bursting, thus saving the crops in the  immediate vicinity of the anti-hailstorm artillery.  A short time later similar'experiments were carried out in Italy, followed soon after by the introduction  of this method of protecting grape  vines and cereal crops in France. In  the latter country the use of anti-  hailstorm guns has been extended  until today they are in general use,  principally in the Bordeaux, Botir-  goync and  Champagne  regions.  A representative type of the anti-  hailstorm cannon is composed of  four main members. First a tripod  which serves to support the carriage  "Mechanism; second, a breechloading  ���������mechanism Avhich receives the cartridge and explodes it by means of a  striking or firingpin; third, a smoke  stack or funnel which is a continuation of the breechloading member  and serves as an outlet for the gases;  and fourth, a sheet of iron measuring  three or four metres (9 to 12 feet)  long, surmounting the cannon and  passing the roof of the shed that  serves as a shelter for the cannon and  its operators.  Following the discharge of the cannon, there escapes from the stack or  funnel a whirling shaft of air, which  according to a French authority, M.  Vcrmoret, brings about certain changes in the atmosphere. The condensation produced by" the discharge  modifies the unstable electrical slate  of thcc;hailstorms that compose the  clouds most feared by the agriculturists. 'Whatever may be'the merit of  these theories offered in explanation  of the anti-hailstorm cannon, the  fact remains that this odd artillery  is serving its purpose well���������Scientific American.  Unlimited Market for Canadian Produce in the Old Country  The United Kingdom in the fiscal  year 1914-1915 imported ��������� meats having a total value of $311,000,000.  Only $81,000,000 of this came from  British possessions. ' Out of this latter amount no less than $16,000,000  was for frozen beef from Australia.  It will be seen from this statement  that England is to a large extent dependent for her meat supplies upon  countries outside of the British Empire. The Argentine sent no less  than $70,000,000 worth of chilled  beef, frozen, beef and canned beef.  Canada contributed little outside of  bacon and hams. Since the war broke  out there have tjeen continuous demands for meats of all kinds. . Enormous supplies have been sent forward by the Argentine, Australia,  New Zealand, the United States and  Uruguay. Some fairly large orders  have also been placed in Canada.  With a view to studying the situation on the spot and acquiring' information for the direction of Canadian production, Mr, H. S. Arkcll,  Assistant Live Stock Commissioner,  early in the year went to England  and France, and on his return prepared a report which is amongst tlie  most valuable and suggestive articles  in The Agricultural War Book, 1916.  This report is also contained in Pamphlet No. 19 of the Live Stock  Branch.

Kellaway, secretary to Dr.  Addison, Parliamentary secretary of  the Ministry of Munitions, has imparted some facts and figures respecting , the organization and resources at the disposal of the country that constitute a, phenomenal accomplishment even-in these modern  times.  Great Britain, he said recently,  which had throughout been the  Treasury of the Allies, had now become their armory. There arc now  scattered up and down the country  some 4,000 controlled firms producing munitions of war.  Ninety arsenals have been 'built or  adapted. Our weekly output of .303'  cartridge is greater by millions than'  our annual output before the Nvar.

I believe that the  work of the Royal Army Medical  Corps is unsurpassed by that in any  war we have ever fought. Our soldiers, wounded one morning on the  front in France, twenty-four hours  later receive medical attention in  London hospitals. Such a feat is unparalleled, and I think may be taken  as a fair indication of the efficiency  of the nc.w armies. Wounded men  arc. transported rapidly for long distances %long the roads, while the  railways are carrying large quantities  of munitions, food and medical supplies toward the fighting lines. The  new steel helmet has completely vindicated its adoption. i have heard  unofficially that minor casualties in  the Sommc have been reduced considerably by the use of this device.  Muior head wounds arc extremely  rare."  sian supply has made a big opening  for Canadian eggs, which will continue as long as the war lasts. After  the war, Canada can hold her trade  if wc pay special attention to quality  and grading.  Through a lessening of the' Danish  imports' due largely to German purchasing in Denmark, Canada has been  enabled greatly to' increase her exports. The war demands have been  great, and the British -workman has  been able to. buy bacon more freely.  Canada can hold this increased trade  if we keep up the quality and. carefully jook to the"-method of curing.  The outlook for the feeding of hogs  is promising at the present time.  We produce good beef in Canada',  but. the quantity of prime available  for the British market is as yet quite  limited. The home market and the  United Stales appropriate all this.  After an interesting trial, however,  it has been-found that France is, and  will continue" to. be, a" good nmrkeLj  for our frozen beef; possibly also  Italy.  This is but a brief reference to  some of the chief points of Mr.  Arkcll's survey. It would seem that  while the war lasts there will be an  increasing demand for. meat of all  kinds, for eggs, poultry and dairy  products, particularly cheese. After  the war is over there will-be some  re-adjustments that cannot now be  foreseen, but through the enormous  destruction of livestock in Europe,  and the tremendous drains that have  been made on the surplus products of  the rest of the world, there must result an enhanced value in live stock  of all kinds. '.'There;1���������may be some  uncertainty as to market conditions  of grain after the war, but not so as  to live stock and live stock products.  months, which had never been made  in Great Britain before 1915. The  output of guns and howitzers has  been increased by several hundred  per cent.  France, Russia and Italy have been  supplied by or through Great Britain with many of the most important munitions of war. -Many thousands of tons of steel have been and  are being sent to France.  There were 184,000. women engaged in war industries in 1914. Today  there are 666,000. The total number  of war workers in 1914 was, 1,198,600.  It had now increased to 3,500,000.  There were 471 different munition  processes upon which women were  now engaged.

At Wolfvillc, Nova Scotia,  a development company has made a  survey  on  the water of  the  Bay of  Fundy with  a view of developing a  tide-water project at Cape Split.   An  American expert in hydraulic production   of    electricity    is   the  scientific  guide of that expedition.    As Americans arc too proud to develop such  tide waters as they have for power,  it may be expected that this man on  a  foreign    tide  may    get  results  lo  wake  us  up  in  this  counlrj'.       The  tides  of   the   Bay   of-Fundy  are  as  famous, for  their, ups and  downs as.  the  revolutions    of    Mexico,    if not  more  so.

The later  experiments   at   Cape  Split  are   said  to have shown that motors developed  50  horse-power    in  a- tide    current  which   ran   nine  miles an  hour.

Bethmann-Holl-  weg v.-has even said, that Germany  being willing to make terms, the Allies arc responsible for all the slaughter and destruction that occurs from  this time forward. This is all talk  and bluster. How can the Allies  think of entering into a peace agreement with the man who invented the  "scrap-of-p'apcr" phrase, broke a solemn trcal\' with Belgium and pleaded national necessity as his excuse  for the crime?  What prospects would there be  that he or the German Government  would keep any peace compact? The  whole record of that nation is against  acceptance of its pledges or undertakings. If Germany still possessed  the strength to do so. would she not  disregard any national treaty whatsoever? It is the kernel of German history and the basic principle of German policy that no promise is binding if in the eyes of the war lords  the immediate national interests secin  to demand otherwise. As is pointed  out by most reputable historians, it  has been the practise of Prussia and  the Hohenzollerns from time immemorial to violate their plighted  troth and even to enter into treaties  with the intention of breaking them  as soon as it became convenient.  Jt will require something more  than the promise of a Bcthmann-  Hollweg or the Royal hand of a Hohenzollern to assure the Allies of  Germany's pacific intentions. As ruled today, Prussianized Germany is so  untrustworthy that her opponents  cannot consider terms with her until  they have driven her back upon her  o\yn territory, crushed her on the  field of battle, and taught the German masses that the Kaiser's bad  faith and militarism will no longer  save them. That is why wc must refuse peace and keep on fighting. The  war must go on until the Kaiser's  vast war machine is so broken that  it can never again menace the peace  and liberties of the world.���������Toronto  News.  so far as the Ministry of Munitions  was  concerned.  "For "a long time," Mr. Kellaway  added, "our anti-aircraft gunners  had been crying out for an improved  height-finder for Zeppelins, the existing height-finders being slow,,  clumsy, and having a margin of error i A.  of hundreds of feet,  ize how that handicapped our gunners in their attempts to bring down  Zeppelins.

Henderson, who enlisted   bere   and  If you care for heavy hair that glistens with beauty and is radiant with  life; has an incomparable softness and  is fluffy and lustrous, try Danderine.  Just one application doubles the  beauty of your hair, besides it immediately dissolves every particle of  dandruff. You can not have nice,  heavy, healthy hair if you have  dandruff. This destructive scurf robs  the hair of its lustre, its strength and  its very life, and if not overcome it  produces a feverishness and itching of  the scalp; the hair roots famish,  Iocs^n and die; then the hair falls out  fast. Surely get a 25-cent bottle of  Knov. iton's Danderine from any drug  storo and just try it.
