Oscar  Lachmund, general manager of   the  company,   returned  to   Greenwood  today from the Crow's Nest.   Shortage of labor, he said,  is  responsible  at Fernie and Colemau for the small  output of ooke.  At Coleman an  additional factor is the   laoli of   sullic-  ient demand for coal.    At that colliery tbe upper seam is not suitaole  for coking; the lower seam is of coking coal.    The lo^er seam can  not  advantageously be worked until the  ������     . coal above has been taken out.   For  that reason the coke output   is governed by   the   market demand   for  coal.

The es  sential qualification is that the voter  must either be,a"property..owner or  registered as * such by -holding'an  agreement iof.. sale for. real'estate  within' the city.boundarres.*.-;'Ten|nts,  not boarders or..'room renters, are  also eligible to register as'such and  may vote on all questions except  those of money bylaws. Any woman who is "paying reut for a house is  considered to be tenant. The .wife  of a soldier on active service who is  paying the rent for her home from  the money she receives from either  tlie patriotic fund or her separation  allowance is also eligible as a "tenant" voter. Or the wife of a soldier-  who has had bis property trails  ferred to her, is considered and as  such has full voting privileges, if  properly.registered a������i such in tune  before the- civic voters'list closes.  Neither is it necessary for applicants  for registration on the voters' list to'  bring along their deeds, registration  p-ipers, or tax receipts. But they  must be prepared to swear * that  they are duly qualified either as a  property owner or a tenant before  oeconiing registered, and tbe last  days for making such declarations  are foi householders any time during the present month, property  owners untihhe last day of November.  Western Products  Win Gold Medal  Westerners will learn   with  inter  est that a gold medal   was   awarded  to the Canadian Pacific   railway   for  the excellence of   its exhibit  at the  Quebec exhibition a few weeks ago.  The gold medal was for    lhe  collec  live grain display, which was   gathered in western   Canada,    and    was  representative of the  various    grain  enps of the western province-*.   The  daily attendance at the Quebec  exhibition ran as high as  75,000, and |  a very groat interest in the   agricul-;  tural possibilities of western Canada j  was shown by the visitors. |  Equal to 25.46 Per Cent on  Stock���������5.52 Per Cent in  Previous Years  A New York dispatch yesterday-  said that tbe Granby statement for  the ;period ended June 30, 1916,  shows-...net* 84,107,621; increase,  S2,767,063; surplus* after charges,  83,819,295, equal to 25.46 per cent  on stock, compared with 5.52 per  cent the previous years.  She Would Not Call Names  The county superintendent of  schools, Miss Whitehead (whose  hair was'ajmost white), was paying  a visit to a country school. At the  close of tbe school,.when the chil  dren went trooping out, each one  said, "Good by, Miss Whitehead!"  But one little girl, with red hair,  said hothing, and hung her head.  As she was about to pass, Miss  Whitehead put out her hand and  said:"  ~?---Nellie, are you not going to say  good-by to*me, as the others have?"  . ,."NoiT'm uot," answered-: Nellie,  "f know what it is to be called  'Miss Redhead,' and I'm just  ashamed of the others.''  i nni  l  A meeting of the Grand Forks  Liberal association will be held in  the board of trade rooms at 8 o'clock  next Monday night.. J. E. \V.  Thompson, member for this constituency, will be present. All members are requested to attend.  A violent windstorm swept over  the city and valley last Friday night  Some cabins were blown off their  foundations, and in some parts of  the city the telephone and light  wires were crippled. The damage  clone to the fruit crop was very  small Some apples were blown off  the trees, and in a few instances  some of the trees were damaged.  smelter spur has also been repaired  and the bridge crew has moved to  Phoenix.  J. E W. Thompson, member-  electfor Grand Forks riding, passed  through the city on Monday, on his  way   to   Phoenix   from   a   visit to  Butte,. Mont.  Alex A, Anderson, editor of the  Republic Journal and candidate for  state representative on the Democratic ticket, is in the city today  looking after stray voters.  Geo.

Matte from  the Anyox smelter is being run  through the furnaces with tbe ore.  By operating in this manner less  coke is required, and consequently |  the cost of producing the copper is  lowered.  R. II. Guise, who has a contract  ���������for baiding ore from the Union mine  in Franklin camg to Lynch creek,  returned on Wednesday from a visit  to his home ir.. Midway.  Bert Mussetto, the Swiss youth  of Phoenix who was seriously injured in the motocycle race at the  fair last sveek, is gradually recovering at the Grand Forks hospital.  H. E. Dixon, formerly manager of  the Sunnyside ranch, who last week  was in the wounded casuality list,  is now reported as having died.  The new fruit packing house in  the lower end of the valley has been  finished.  The Great Northern four-stall  roundhouse at Weston has been  completed.    Tho   bridge     on     the  Jenne-Smith  A wedding of much local interest  took ��������� place Monday morning last,  when Miss Hazel May Smith was  united in matrimony to Ralph Everett Jenne at the residence of the  bride's father, J. A. Smith. The  bride was charmingly attired in a  gown of cream Latin messaline, and  was attended by her sister, Miss  Gertrude Smith, as bridesmaid.  The groom was supported by his  brother, Howard Jenne,' as best  man, and the wedding march was  played by Miss Mcllwaine. The  ceremony was performed by Rev. J.  D. Hobden.  After the wedding breakfast the  happy couple left amid showers of  rice and many congratulations on  the Great Northern train for their  future home near Seattle. Mr. and  Mrs. Jenne have a large circle of  friends in Crand Forks whose best  wishes for a happy future go with  them.  The ore body in the property of  the Laurier Mining company at  Laurier, near the international line  in Ferry connty, has been followed  to point where it has a vertical '  course, according to Manager Grant  Stewart. Up to the time of this revelation the vpin bad been in blanket  form and yielded ore in considerable volume from three lenses  reached by an incline shaft, says  the Republic Journal.  Manager Stewart says: "The vertical shoot has a length of 70 feet at  t'-e point of greatest depth nttained.  It is followed from a point 125 feel  back in the blanket body, where the  width is 25 feet. The vertical course  was exposed under the stope, from  which we removed 55 tons of ore.  -"The grain of the ore has the  same course as the vein in both the  vertical and the blanket body. This  encourages belief that the blanket  body was a slip and that we are  "now in a permanent formation.-  Prospecting has been under way  since the suspension of shipments on  September.10. We will now increase  the force at once and hope to be on  a shipping basis again by October  15. The new shoot is the prettiest I  have seen since the opening of the  LeRoi.'.'  "Net returns from the", shipments  were 818,393.91,.!'* said Dayton  Stewart, the president. "This was  in payment for 1004 tons contained  iu 25 ca������rs and at the rate of S18 32  to the ton after the deduction of  freight and treatment charges. The  average content was 4.5 percent  copper and 2.4 ounces of silver and  the range from 3.4 to 7.6 per cent  copper and 2.2 to 6 ounces of silver."  Pte. Fred Graham, formerly editor of the Phoenix Pioneer, was a  visitor in the city from Vernon the  latter part of last week.  W. D. Willson. member-elect for  Rossland, was a visitor in the city  on Monday.  J. H. Ryley returned on Tuesday  from a vacation trip to bis truit  ranch at Queen's Bay.

GRAND   FORKS,   B. &  Story Told by  cer  Wounded ' Lieutenant   Finds   Enemy  Dugout .Furnished  Like a  Regular Boudoir  A second lieutenant in a Yorkshire  battalion, with a shrapnel wound in  his right thigh and a machine gun  wound in his left leg, tells a story of  a German dugout and its -occupants.  The dugout was in the first line trenches taken by the officer's platoon,  and six bombs had been thrown down  The Beriillon S/stem  Tt s te :1 by t an k e rs  American Financial Institutions Take  Thumb Prints of Dcpcsitors  Bankers .in Pittsburg, especially  those who cater largely to foreigners,  are .'watching -with much interest an  experiment being carried on by certain Eastern bankers to facilitate the  banks'-dealings with foreign depositors. This experiment is thc installation of a system of thumb-print  taking which has its' basis in the  well-known theory of lhat section of  the   Berlillon   system.     In   one   bank  it.    Thc men  then  went*  forward  to  ai0nc, in Philadelphia, there arc 1,200  thc next trench, and thc officer being  hit twice, had lo stay behind. The  rest of thc story may be given in his  own words:  "After a bit J wriggled back' 10  that Bochc front line into a shallow  sap that had been pulverized by our  heavies. I was resting'there, when I  saw a Boche officer come' climbing  cautiously' up out of that big dugout  that we'd put six bombs in. He was  -i captain. He had a bomb in one  hand and a ride and bayonet in the  other; and he was peering first one  way and then the other, like a burglar, 'Oh, you beauty!! I thought.  And just then he snuggled down ag  ainst a gap in their parados, near (he  dugout, and bedded' his rifle comfortably for firing at our chaps in his  second line. You can bet I was glad  J had my rifle and plenty of ammunition. So I got a beautiful bead on'  this chap and a second later he was  ���������I wonder where dead Bodies go!  1 charged my breech again, and ho  sooner done than my next target  bobs up���������a lieutenant. I got him  while he was looking at his captain.  I aimed for his shouldcrbladcs, but  the old gun kicked a bit and I got  him through the head. Seemed 1  might as well be in a grouse butt,  and nothing less than officers for targets, mind you. Well, lo cut it short,  two" more lieutenants came up from  that same dugout, making,in all three  lieutenants and one captain, and I got  'em all.  "And then a private came up, with  never a weapon of any sort in his  hands, and thc fear of God in his  white face. 'You're a Boche,' 1  thought; 'probably a batman, and  you ought to be shot; but you've got  nothing in your silly hands.'_ It was  too much like a sitting bird, you  know. Couldn't manage it. -'Here!'  I shouted at him. He fell just the  same as if I'd shot him. I managed  lo clamber back to lhat trench and  poke the Boche with the butt end of  my rifle till he found himself a little  and stood up. -I meant to sec that  blessed dugout for myself. I had lo  get the Bochc's help, but couldn't  think how to tell him in German  what I wanted. 'Look here, Boshy,'  I said, Teh wille seen dicscr blooming dugout. Got that?'' Then I said  'Donner wetter?' and grinned at him  to show there was no ill feeling, and  he managed to make connection.  "I kept him in front, you may be  sure; but, if I'd been an old blind  beggar he wouldn't have had pluck-  enough to empty my tin can. The  dugout was a bit knocked about by  our six'bombs; had a sort of rough-  house look about it. But at thc back  of the lowest corner there was a  sharp twist round to thc right, and a  door with broken glass panels, taken  from a farmhouse, by thc look of it.  "Through that wc went along a  " passage, turned to the left, down  four steps, and into a regular  boudoir. Dugout! Why, there was  Turkey carpel on the floor and beautiful tapestry curtains to the bunks.-  Never saw anything like it. But. lhe  luxury of it. There were three cases  of beer; very good stuff, too. I had  a ��������� bottle myself right away. There  were about a hundred eggs; two  cut hams, pate de foie gras, in little  jars, sausages, several boxes of  cigars, one case of champagne, a  gramophone and lashins of cakes and  chocolate. There was an electric bell  fixed, a sniall typewriter, and in one  of the bunks I found a lot of ribboi.s  and things from ladies' dresses and  a pair of lady's gloves. It was a  regular show, that place. I took ?.  dispatch case, and all the loose papers on the table, and got the batman to help mc back again to daylight. There wasn't a living soul to  be found in the trench; so I got the  batman to take mc pick-a-back, and  carry the dispatch case, while I stuck  to my rifle.  "'Now, then, Gustavc Wilhclm Al-  hrecht von Boche,' I said to him, 'we  will ausgang as schncll as wc can  for our own lines, comprce?' He  was a little slow in thc uptake, as  you might say, but tumbled lo it after a bit, especially when I donncr-  wctlcrcd him a bit."  depositors .whose thumb prints arc  registered in lhe bank and who can  draw funds from their deposits simply by permitting the bank officials  to compare thc whorls on their  thumbs with thc prints taken and  preserved when their accounts were  opened. It is claimed that, under  this system, it is absolutely impossible for a person lo secure from a  bank money which docs not rightfully  belong to him.  Thc system was originally instituted as an aid to foreigners and for  those who cannot write. At one  time it was the custom in most banks  to refuse deposits unless the would-  be depositor could sign his name.  Through thc Philadelphia innovation  such a person can go to a bank and  open an account by merely pressing  the fingers of his right hand lightly  on a glass plate covered with specially prepared ink. ,Thc impression is  transferred to a card and is filed. Two  impressions arc made, one filed under the name of thc depositor and  the other under the scientific descrip  lion of the markings. Thc latler  method is used principally as a safe  guard for foreign women, who oft  times open an account in their maiden names and later attempt lo  withdra*,y money by giving marriage  names, this usually causing much confusion if the woman speaks but broken English.  The thumb prints arc also used in  the case of <*.n aged person whose  signature is "shaky" and with those  whose writing is hard to decipher. It  is also coming into wide use with  children, because of the fact lhat  children's handwriting changes with  maturity, while thc thumb markings  never do.

Of this, 7,000 was spent for  thc endowment of'hospital beds;  $6,677 for medical and surgical supplies, and $4,477 for motor ambulances. In addition, a generous contribution was made to thc Ogden  Home for convalescent soldiers. Thc  total number of articles handled by  the supply department was 332,320,  of which the most important * items  are 64,000 bandages, 77,000 handkerchiefs, and nearly 12,000 socks and  15,000 shirts. Since the first of the  year, 14 new branches have been  formed.  The last financial report of the  Manitoba branch shows 56 branches,  a number of which have been largely added to since the first of the  year. Total contributions were $120,-  116, of which $73,850 was sent to Dominion headquarters in Toronto. The  total shipments from the Winnipeg  shipping station in the first three  months of its existence amounted, to  678 cases, of a value of $19,772. This  will furnish an estimate of the annual  turnover.  In Saskatchewan 37 new branches  have been formed since January. The  last annual statement of receipts  shows, contributions of $50,006, of  which $33,800 was placed to the  credit of thc general account of the  Red Cross Society.

The review estimates lhat from the  beginning of the war and lo the end  of June, and excluding inconsequential loans floated in Great Britain,  the Dominion Government, its provinces and municipalities, have borrowed about $404,000,000, of which  $222,000,000 is believed to have been  provided^ by United Slates investors,  thc remainder coming from within  the .Dominion. The bountiful crops  of last year assisted Canada substantially. Thc scarcity of agricultural  labor due to the withdrawal of so  many men for thc army was relieved  by help from our states. Thc conclusion of the summary, of conditions  is that "both in respect of financial  ability and industrial capacity Canada has been able to perform her  tasks in thc great struggle much  more easily and with less disturbance than any other of the belligerent countries, and there is corresponding reason to expect that her return to normal conditions after the  war will be similarly easy."���������Buffalo  Courier.  Actors Best Officers  English Airman Races with Swallow  A thrilling race between an officer  of thc British Flying Corps in an  aeroplane and a swallow caused him  lo doubt whether their reputed flight  of 200 miles an hour was correct.  "I was up in the air one day last  week when I observed a swallow flying high in front of mc," he said. "I  resolved to test its speed. I went  out full after it, and thc swallow also  put on full speed.. The bird dived;  so did I. It went up, and I followed.  Wc were at it hammer and tongs for  a, quarter of an hour, diving, rising,  and racing and I gained on it foot  by foot. Finally one of thc wires on  my machine struck thc bird and it  went down.

U.     1122  England Must Feed Herself  New Slogan to Bring Great Agricultural Revival  One of Ihc effects of thc war will  be seen in a great revival of agricultural life in England and thc United  Kingdom. Thc outbreak of thc conflict caught thc British Isles dependent on foreign commerce for four-  fifths of their food supply, barring  meat, of which between 60 and 80 per  cent, is produced at home.  Thc motto of a few years ago,  "Back to thc land," thus has given  way to thc slogan, "England must  feed herself." Lord Sclborne, the  leader of the crusade, declares that  the attainment of this object is thc  country's sacred duty, and he emphasizes thc point that the farmer,  can do as much for thc country as  thc  soldier in  the  trenches.  They Impress Soldiers With Personality, Says Drill Sergeant  Actors make the best army officers  according to a British drill sergeant,  who has had experience in an officer's  training  corps.  The drilL sergeant, quoted in the  London Daily Mail, made the statement positively.  "First of all," he said, "they know-  how to give the word of command, a  very important consideration. . They  arc never shy or self-conscious, and  they impress tlie men with, their personality.

Scoresby  Roullcdgc, the vessel left England  more than two years ago on a scientific mission to Eastern Island in thc  South   Pacific.  Thc last stage of the little vessel's  voyage __ was from San Francisco,  which she lcfl five months ago. There  were eleven persons on board.  "After leaving San Francisco," Mr.  Roullcdgc said, "wc came down the  Mexican coast. Two hundred miles  from land wc came upon three islands  marked as uninhabited and I decided  to land lo try .and gel some meat."  But our landing was delayed as the  mouth of thc cove was occupied by  two whales, who were feeding and  who refused to move until the following  day.  On landing wc found " a rough  shanty, together with" a derelict boat  and alongside a rough cross evidently marking a grave. In'a rift in a  cliff, wc found a sort of cave strewn  with old bottles and odds and ends -  of a camp. Nearby was a piece of  wood bearing the. name "Annie Lar-  sen," which f learned "Ttom a shipwrecked sailor who was on the yacht  was the name of a vessel engaged in  blockade running or * contraband.  There is no doubt that thc remote  islanrl' had been the dumping ground-  for Mexican revolutionists.  "There were so many turtles lhat  wc got tired of-feeding on them. -It  was curious to sec these creatures  being regarded by the birds as a.kind  of floating island and to see gulls  preening themselves on thc turtles'  backs.  "Thc Alaua visited one small island  in the Gulf of Panama where elephantiasis was rampant' among the  people. The currents in this region  were .very difficult and there was'one  sailing ship that had been drifting in  circles for 13 months and had been  unable to get out. The Panama  canal was closed to traffic but thc  American government allowed thc  Mana, as the vessel of a scientific-  expedition, to go through.  "Some 50 miles from J.amaica we  saw what appeared to be at first a  burning ship, and afterwards looked  like smoke from a naval action. We  found it to be a submarine volcano  blowing off.

Small Pill, Small Dose, Smalt Price.  Genuine must bear Signature,  Extermination  The Massacre    of Innocents    Under  Turko-German Auspices  At the beginning of 1915 the, Ottoman Armenians numbered more than  2,000,000. By the end of the year,  two-thirds of their number had either  been massacred- in their native  towns and villages or "deported" to  destinations-which more-than half of  them* never reached. This .gigantic  crime was no spontaneous outburst  of fanaticism or of race hatred.'- It  was a deliberate attempt, organized  from Constantinople and executed  with thc help of German officers, to  realize thc "Pan-Turanian idea" in  thc form of a scheme suggested by a  German writer, Dr. Rohbach.' Thc  scheme involved thc "removal"-of  the Armenian population that separated the Turks in the heart of thc  Anatolian peninsula from the other  Turkish-speaking populations in  -northwestern,. Persia . and Russian  Caucasia. The original "Pan-Turanian idea" is believed to have been  extracted from a notable "Introduction aJ'Histoire de l'Asic," published  twenty-two years..ago in Paris by-an  eminent Franco-Jewish Orientalist,  M. Leon Cahun, whose .record of thc  aims and exploits of Jcnghiz Khan  fired the imagination of. Young Turkish fanatics like Dr. Nazim and  others. Its practical application -has  resulted in thc massacre of hundreds  of thousands of innocent people under Turco-Gcrman auspices." In his  analysis- of Turkish characteristics  M. Cahun placed foremost that .of  blind obedience to orders. When the  Turk is told to behave himself he  obeys; when he is told to torture and  massacre, he tortures and massacres.  ,The sufferings of the Armenians, unparalleled in modern history, should  serve to explode the fiction of "thc  gentle Turk,". and to enhance our  gratificatioh. at the avenging advance  of our Russian allies in the Armenia  bighlands.���������"London .Times.

Thc resources and  thc men were always there,' to makt  headway against the German armies,  but they could'have been got together  and utilized only by nations having  a great issue and a great "moral" unity.  And these Germany, as if led by an  evil genius, has herself furnished to  her enemies. Against another, they  might have been divided. With another, they might have made a separate peace. But when- they .were  clearly shown what they had to fight,  they were 'thrown " back upon" those  springs of "moral action " and those  heroisms of, soul, which your material-minded militarist can neither  understand nor conquer. This is what  really makes the Allies invincible.  They have now wrested the initiative  from the" German strategists. Their  military prospects seem of the fair-,  est, as" they now close in- upon the  German forces from all sides. Bui  as to this, -we make no predictions.  All that we w.ould point out is that  an invisible ally has all along fought  against Germany, and still presses  her back.

It is also proposed that one central office be maintained at Winnipeg,  Rcgina and Edmonton, which shall be  responsible for all exchanges, and  that thc superintendence shall be  under a commission of six members,  one appointed by each of the three  governments and one by the Trades  and Labor Councils of each province,  such commission to have full power  lo appoint all officers of the local  and central exchanges.

It is surprising how quickly- after, the recent election the Conservatives became converted to the policy of the abolition of thc  patronage system.  Anyway, it takes four amateurs to  make  a  good professional.  SAYINGS OF tPICTETUS  FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6, 191G  t Who will be the leader of the-, Conservative  party in-British Columbia? This question is  almost as important as, Who will be the min-  . isters of Premier Brewster's cabinet? It is  improbable that any, of the Conservative  members-elect will ever be able to lead the  party to victory. A more capable man will be  needed to accomplish this task. In looking  over the field, there appears to be but two  men in the party in the. province of commanding personality. Hon. Martin Burrell  has many friends in the province, and Sir  Charles Tupper, although he threw in his lot  with the Liberals in the late election, still  claims to be a Conservative. Either of these  men might gain a Conservative victory in the  course of a couple of decades.  What is' due to tbe state pay as quickly as you  can, and you will never be asked for that which is not  due.  As a .wolf resembles a dog, so both a flatterer and  a parasite resemble a friend. Take care,' then,- that  instead of watchdogs you do not without knowing it let  in mischievous wolves. ' '  If you wish to make your judgments just, listen not  (regard not) any of those who are parties (to the suit),  nor to those who plead in it. but to justice itself.  Nothing is smaller (meaner) than   love   of   pleasure,  and   love   of gain   and pride.    Nothing is  superior   to  magnanimity, and gentleness, and love of mankind and'  beneficence.  It is not poverty which produces sorrow, but desire;  nor does wealth release from fear, but reason, the  power'of reasoning. If then you acquire this power  of reasoning you will neither desire wealth nor complain of poverty.  The Victoria Week thinks - our judges are  underpaid. It says that almost an barrister  of standing **can make more money in a year  than their salaries amount to. This is probably true. But, on the other hand, there are  many men on the bench now drawing phat  salaries who, before their appointment, were  unable to earn a decent living as country  lawyers. On the whole, things are pretty  evenly balanced.  A cat invariably comes back, but the articles taken  from the old Sun office are likely to remain away forever.  - The Sun, at $1.00 per year, gives its readers  three times more reading matter than any  other Boundary paper. This fact accounts  for the rapid increase in our circulation.  Besides being read by all the intelligent people of Grand Forks, The Sun goes to every  ranch home in the Kettle and North Fork  valleys.    No other Boundary paper can  give  advertisers this guarantee.  The election of the full Liberal ticket in  Victoria was made thg, occasion for a party  banquet to thc workers in that city, at which  Premier-elect Brewster and the other- candidates delivered speeches of congratulation to  those who had been instrumental in their return. The remarks of Mr. Brewster were of  especial interest, because it was his first deliver since the election. The Liberal leader  was careful to reiterate his stand upon certain  matters which he had emphasized during the  fight. The party was pledged, he ..said, to  give this province clean and honest government, and to abolish the patronage, system,  and the pledge would be carried out to the  utmost. The clays of the professional politician were past, never, he hoped, to return. To  the past, also, belonged the spoils system.  In mining development we have recently  had an object lesson of how much unpaid labor  benefits a community. The system works out  at about the same ratio in other industries;  and yet the man who discourages "wildcatters"  is called a "knocker" by the lightweights who  can not differentiate between legitimate enterprises and mushroom concerns.

When  dug up, they should be watered and  left in the cellar or some other dark,  cool place for a few days before they  are brought into the lull light.

INSURANCE  COMPANY  AN EXCLUSIVELY CANADIAN COMPANY  ESTABLISHED 1890  Excelsior Policies Are  Money Makers  Wet and Dry Periods  Come Alternately  And Have Been Doing: So For Three  Thousand Years  Among the more notable investigations of thc climate of past centuries arc those by Professor Huntington, and his conclusions are based on  historical records 'in Europe, archaeological investigation in Central  America, and on thc tree growth as  indicated by the rings of old trees,  especially thc Sequoia of California.  The curves showing probable rainfall, which he has obtained from  these various sources, show* a fairly  satisfactory agreement through thc  past'3,000 years, and indicate that the  weather conditions throughout this  long span of human history have been  pulsatory in character, periods oi  wet years alternating irregularly with  periods  of  relatively dry years.  In the past 100 years there have  been exceptionally wet seasons and  exceptionally dry seasons, also exceptionally cool summers, and exceptionally warm summers. Early in  the. 19th century there were scveril  exceedingly cool years in Eastern  Canada and the United States, notably 1812, 1815 and 1816, and 1812 and  1816 were known as years without a  summer.  While thc rainfall from April 1st  to hue irt June was in excess of the  rainfall of thc corresponding period  in any year since records have been  kept in Toronto, there arc three May-  July periods and five July-August periods when the rainfall was considerably greater than it- was in April,  May and June.**  The excessive rain was only in Ontario and western Quebec. In eastern Quebec and the Maritime Provinces thc fall was about an average,  while in Newfoundland thc rainfall  was comparatively light, and for two  months the weather was exceptionally fine and bright. ��������� Sir Robert F.

"Wc already know how the Germans have feared the Highlanders.  They have better reason for,fearing  them today than ever they had.  There has been nothing finer done  in this war or, I believe, in auy war,  ' than the way. in which Scotsmen,  after four days, of unimaginable  strain, held and flung back .the enormously preponderating numbers of.  the desperate last German counterattack. It was: what remained of the  Highlanders, with a ..gallant handful  of South Africans, who, in a hastily  made line, met, body to body, and  beat back a force of cither nine or  ten battalions of fresh troops. It is  in such things when, after the German artillery had done its worst,  their infantry must come in, that, not  once, but a score of times here, we  have proved ourselves thc better men.

The work of the party is expected  to prove valuable in determining thc  direction of winds and thc movement  of tides in the Polar region.

It .will  come when Germany is ready for it,  and the time is approaching. It will  come when Germany has learnt the  lesson of the war, when it has found,  as every other nation has had to  learn, that the voice of Europe cannot be defied with impunity. It will  come when Germany is ready to repudiate . the persons and the principles that made the war inevitable,  when the militarists and the. Chauvinists have became a despised and repudiated remnant,, when the nation  says: "To you we listened, and you  we have obeyed; to you we have sacrificed all that holds us to life, the  lives of our sons and our husbands  and our ..fathers, the ideals, and beliefs of our ancestors, and our own  better nature.

Warfare and Insanity  Few Are Crazed By the.Battles, According to Statistics  In the early days "of the'war doleful predictions were hc^rd that modern civilization with its debilitating  horrors of modern death dealing devices w'ould drive thousands of. soldiers mad. Men taken from peaceful  pursuits, whose chief hazard had been  in crossing thc streets," were suddenly set down in an inferno of explosives, beset with thc constant imminence of death in terrible forms, deprived of countless comforts and conveniences, racked in mind night and  day for months, and there seemed  every probability that thousands indeed would break under the unfamiliar and seemingly intolerable strain.  But the records do not show it. Statistics thus iar prove that these fears  were tremendously exaggerated.  Dr. G. Dumas, who has treated all  cases of mental trouble in one of the  French armies, says his data, covering the first six months of last year,  agrees with the "reports of German  doctors regarding madness among  combatants. He finds the cases of  insanity caused directly or indirectly  by thc war in France arc quite as few  in proportion as those reported in  Germany, and offers thc figures as refutation of the theory of-German specialists that the Teutonic " ra*ce has  greater nervous resistance than thc  French or Latin. The same conclusion is indicated by thc British reports. It is doubted whether any  appreciable number of soldiers who  have broken down mentally would  not have done so anyhow, even if  there had been no war. Most of the  cases suggested previous weaknesses.  ���������From the Pittsburg Dispatch.  Prevention and Provision  It is a strange argument, that of  thc pacifists that preparedness will  not prevent war. No more docs fire  prevention work prevent fires.

Usually thc man who can  talk freely likes to talk, and in the  enjoyment of 'his own eloquence he  completely forgets lhat other people  also desire once in a while to say  a little. The talker may not mean  to be selfish, but he is so whether  he means it or hot, and he is apt to  find himself becoming increasingly  unpopular.

Special and  pointed allusion is made to the Belgians, and this may have the effect  of misleading the public and creating-  in England an unjust, and dangerous  feeling towards them.  During thc first months of the wai  the Belgian authorities organized an  intense propaganda in-favor of the  voluntary enrolment of refuges. Then  dwo.laws in 1915 and 1916 called "to  arms various categories of Belgians,  and measures were taken to 'discover  refractory Belgians and place them  at the disposal of the military authorities. * Several thousands of Belgians have left England to join the  army, and these constitute a considerable force if :t is .remembered that  the whole colony of Belgian refuges  in the United Kingdom, men, women and children, amounts at most *  to 200,000 persons.

FOSTER'S SPIRITED MESSAGE TO BRITAIN  Urges Strong After-War Measures in Dealing With the German**5  And Lays Considerable Stress on the Fact That the Empire  . And Allies Should Be Favoured Before Neutrals    o ��������� : ���������  Sir George Foster's speech at Earl  Grey's Colonial Institute luncheon  made a great impression, especially  his ' strong but entirely unaggressive  message to the British Ministers regarding the Empire's attitude to-  . wards* neutrals, which, of course, for  Englishmen and Canadians means in  effect  thc  United* States.  Sir George spoke of the profound  impression made upon him and  .other overseas representatives"' by  their visits .to tlie battlefronts in  Flanders, thc naval bases in Britain  and the' munitions factories in all  parts of thc kingdom.  - _. "In two years Canada has passed  ���������������������������hrough phases which" have chastened and strengthened her heart," he  said.." "Wc and. you have' had  something of, thc feelings of Geth-  semanc. - (Wc can never go back to  the days of August, 1914. Wc-shall  never be the same again."  He-severely eluded those who bade  us wait till thc war was over, especially those���������and- he met not a few  in England ��������� who wished to resume  dealings with Germany after the war.  Almost paraphrasing Lord Kifcheu-  , cr's last public message, Sir George  urged that wc must"-purge' our Empire life entirely of the German taint  and do it now.  "I    hate no    man,"  he    said  "not  even the Hun, but "I have a memory,  ���������    and I propose to keep it.    i-am not  going to forget, what the Huns have  done in outrage, pillage, looting," and  worst of all/ base betrayal of friendship  and hospitality for purposes of  spying and fortifying for the Fatherland.    Wc have had    revealed"  what  thc German heart and purpose is, and  for  this  generation  at .least  German  goods,-    German  men     and   German  partnership   must   be   excluded   from  ���������thc pale of the British Empire. (Loud  cheers.)  "Give-them  a  good  long  time  lo  /repent,  but be sure  they  do  repent.  ' Then they can come and pray to be  admitted lo the fellowship of decent  -society."  .Sir George's reference lo neutrals,  which attracted most attention,. and  coming from Canada's spokesman at  " the Empire conference must greatly  influence thc British Ministers, was  as .follows: ' t.    -  "What of our altitude towards neutral countries? That is * a delicate  subject. How long is this Empire  going to take off its hat and attune  " its cars to thc least whisper that may  come as lo some disadvantage that  will accrue to a neutral country if  -the Empires dares to fix up its home  affairs and choose between the_ Empire of today and that illimitable  Empire of the future if wc arc true  to   ourselves?  "Even if it takes off some of your  profits from neutral trade; drop the  profit practice, sacrifice and call it  service. Work for thc future and  you will have your own reward now,  while future generations will rise up  and call you blessed.  "These neutral countries are great  and strong, but they have not spent  an ounce of their blood nor a dollar  of their money in that -terrible hell  of war, which on thousands of miles  has -dashed against thc sons of the  Empire, leaving its long trail of fearful consequences for many a generation.  - "We may well say to neutral countries in settling this momentous  question: 'Wc have to reconstruct  ourselves. Wc must be allowed to  say how to do it. We will not be unreasonable with you, but we must  be just to our own.'"  Speaking of closer economic unity  for the Empire, Sir George said Englishmen who were still tree traders  would be jogged out of some of their  notions some of these days (laughter), and added: "I am . not a free  trader, and speaking personally I  don't hold out thc least hope in the  wide world that the Empire can today come together on a basis of free  trade.  "It is time for the Empire to consolidate itself with reference to trade,  commerce and production, and hammer out quickly its policy for the  future.

Drawing a  fine, picture of' thc city taking Australia to her ample bosom and giving  her equal rights', he passed to his favorite subject, the welding of thc  British Empire into a great and lasting  whole.

Among    the    fine   phrases    of    h  Lessons   Insanity and Frees Women  From Many Neurotic  Ailments  An   interesting   sidelight   on   President    Wilson's    remark    about    "the  world going mad" is given in the annual  report of Dr.  William  Graham,  of Belfast, one of the most highly  reputed Irish alienists, who presents  a remarkable picture of the tonic  value of * war.    Dr.  Graham says:  "The fact is indisputable that insanity, like corns, has lessened during the period of the war."  So far as the future is concerned,  ���������Dr. Graham is encouraging. He  says that there arc solid grounds for  the hope that "especially,' although  not exclusively among women, we  shall find a great diminution of those  neurotic disorders-lhat formed a part  of the mental abnormality -of thousands of men who have gone or arc  preparing lo go to the front, who  have all their life been subject to the  bondage pf neurasthenic weakness  and incapacity or of phychaslhenic  fears or hypochondriac fancies. Thc  physical regime    under    which these  is  speech were those in which he referred lo the valiant .dead and "the  valiant, living who walk into the very  jaws of death in order that their liberty and their country may be-saved."  Of thc war he said: "Our salvation  is tp be achieved only by deeds." To  thc "visionaries who babble of peace"  he gave this fine message: "The history of ihc race teaches us one lesson, written in letters of fire. If we  wish to hold this Empire we must  be prepared to defend it." To the  nation he said: "If wc intend lo hold  this Empire for thc British race we  must create conditions, which will  breed a virile and resourceful people. We must sec that throughout  this Empire the gates of opportunity are slammed in no man's face.  Every man must have his chance."

Defining a Deserter  Home  Soldiers  Who  Absent  Themselves Equally Culpable-With.  ;   Overseas Men  Thc impression disseminated as  the result of a news item published  generally in Canadian papers' from  Ottawa,, that a soldier could not be  a deserter until his battalion went  overseas is -vigorously contradicted  at the- militia department.  It was stated that such is not the  case, and tha a soldier who absents  himself for a sufficient period without leave is a deserter whether his  battalion is overseas or at home.  Some misunderstanding also . appears to have arisen as regards the  power" of commanding officers of  units to sentence men to jail for being absent without leave. This has  been done in the Ottawa military district, and -other places as well. According lo the militia department,  however, no commanding officer has  such power. He may give a soldier.  28 days' detention for being absent  without leave, but cannot imprison  him. A magistrate must pass the  sentence. Since the war broke out  special permission has been given  magistrates to try cases of absence  without leave.  It was also slated at thc militia  department that thc parents of  boys who have enlisted in thc expeditionary forces who appear at the  last moment .and claim their offspring will not bcallowed to do so in  fului-e.-  or relatives in- thc expeditionary  forces of Canada could be made was  issued by the Militia Department. The  statement is to' the effect that numerous enquiries and applications arc-  being made to- headquarters at Ottawa which ought lo. be riB''- elsewhere, causing a great deal of unnecessary delay, and that these enquiries  should  be  made as  follows:  Enquiries relating to casualties  arc to be made direct to the Records  Office at Ottawa. Other enquiries or  an application for leave, transfer or  otherwise relating lo members of thc  Canadian   Expeditionary  Forces  who  have  proceeded  overseas,     may     be  made" to    the    "Canadian Hcadquar- and, save  for a small   bit  of Alsace^  profitable to  Germain.'."  If this speech is authentic, it shows  thc German Emperor in the role of  a conscienceless liar. No man cv~r  labored more sincerely for thc peace  of the world than Sir Edward G.-ev  in the fateful days of July,' 1914. No  nation ever entered into war with  greater reluctance: than Britain,did  at that time. Had thc British people  been . plotting Germany's destruction  they would assuredly have had  greater military strength than lhat  jecringly spoken of as French's "con-  ���������emptible" little army. Britain's military unprcparcdncss has already  been accepted by historians as a complete rebuttal of the charge lhat she  sought the destruction  of Germany.  The events of two years of ���������warfare prove beyond all possibility of  denial that Germany was thc plotter.  Her stores of war material had been  accumulated for offensive warfare.  Iicr great siege guns had been prepared in secret lo destroy the frontier fortresses of Belgium and France.  By thc invasion of those countries,  Germain'*, within a few clays of the  opening of hostilities, did place in  peril and did horribly ill-treat their  helpless women and children.

It might force him to be honest when he was on thc verge of becoming dishonest, and a man who is  honest even by pressure is better  than a dishonest man. The man who  proves himself wilfully dishonest  should be treated by everybody on  thc cash-in-advance principle, and as  soon as he learns that he can get  nothing till thc cash is on the counter, lie will soon realize his position  in the community.
