Biekcrton,.  -.Bontbron,     Donaldson,    McCallutri  and Smith were present at the regular meeting of the cit y council   last  Monday night.  ' A communication from the B.~ C.  Union of Municipaliies, asking for  a small grant, was received and  ordered filed!  '.A delegation composed of R.  Campbell and Messrs Webster and  'Carter addressed the council, asking  "that a sidewalk from the Methodist  church to the Great Northern station be constructed this fall Parties  interested in the walk had"subscribed  ���������S30 toward defraying ihe cost of  the   same.-   Aid    Bo.ithron   stated  -that he th >ugjit it would be impossible to obtain a s-ullicient quantity of cinders to complete the walk  this year, but enough could probably be secured to build it as far as  Mr. Carter's residence this fall. The  mayor assured the delegetes that  work on the walk would   be   started  -at once and that it would- be built  as far as possible this year.  A protest was read from Donald  McCallum and other property own  ers in the neighborhood of the An  g'ijan church agiinst the erection of  a drive sh'id on Spokane avenue.  Mr. McCallum was present and addressed the council. He contended  that the she'd would be an eyesore  and a fly breeder. The principle to  give away streets, or the exclusive  use of them, was wrong.    He would  wore ordered to be paid; tho traders'  license bvlaw was reconsidered and  finally passed, and then the council  udiourncl.

The  resolution also embodied   the clause  that   tbe   request of   the ratepayers  be granted.  The chairman of the board of  works reported that the fill across  the North Fork was now passable;  the government was impr >viog the  grounds around tbe post office, and  the city should improve the street  at the upper end of the block, which  would necessitate the removal of a  hydrint and an electric light pole;  . an aitomobile had run into tbe sidewalk on Winnipeg avenue and damaged it to a considerable degree, and  he favored some restrictions being  put on the speed limit of autos in  the city.

Collins   has shipped   six  cars of fruit this season.  A story that should be rigidly investigated by the provincial authorities comes from the Doukhobor" colony at  Carson.  The facts in the case as told The Sun reporter are as  follows: A prominent fruit grower on the Covert estate has  an independent Doukhobor in his employ. This man's wife  has a sister who is a member of the Doukhobor community.  The girl is reported to have told her sister that when Peter  Veregin visited the valley a couple of weeks ago he found out  that about a dozen of the girls of the community had been  working out for various farmers in the district, and had not  turned their earnings into thc treasury of the society. As a  punishment, Peter compelled the girls to go into a barn, and  there he made them strip as nude as they were at the moment they were born. Then he lashed them with a whip  until the blood came. He is also said to have found $i-'"> in  their clothes, and this sum he kept. The girls chastised are  between 18 and 20 years of age.  The facts stated above are vouched for by two reputable  , ��������� . ,,      ,.        -, citizens of Carson.

THE    SUN,   GRAND   FORKS,   R. C.  m.  m&-  h:  A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF .THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS PER PLUG  That Satisfy  By     A.   P.  Marshall, Niagara Falls,  Canada  The above is what the goorl breeder  is trying to make with'every, sale and  tbe buyer hopes to get in every purchase lie. makes.'��������� Jt is true in every  line of trade as well as that of disposing of poultry and failure to complete tliem in a way that meets the  satisfaction of all, is due to. the same  causes whether in poultry or some  other commodity.  For one who is endeavoring to build  up a business and who realizes what  will help most in doing so every effort will be made to make all 'transactions as satisfactory as possible  whether; it''be in the sale of eating  eggs, fowls for eating or exhibition  and breeding stock the same is true  with regard to the value of having the  purchaser wall "satisfied. Many tim^s  this alone will ���������influence.a breeder to  put in something extra or give quality  that lie honestly feels is worth more  than the price demanded so as to get  a greater satisfaction for the purchaser.  Even then the difficulty of making  every sale makes the purchaser feel  exceedingly well pleased is one that  is having the very closest study of all  ���������breeders. Generally speaking,' of  course, the quality of the article produced will determine to a large extent  the satisfaction it will give on the  average. However, there are other  elements that may mar the possibilities for the complete satisfaction that  both  parties wish to have.  So often the breeder and-the buyer  may not-fully understand each 'other  so that the wishes of the purchaser  are not fully comprehended by the  seller. Consequently when the bird  arrives, although of first-class quality,  he proves to be quite different to what  the purchaser pictured or looked forward to receiving. The fact that a  bird may or may not win at some  show does not for a moment determine the quality, although in the  majority of cases it .would have all to.  do with the satisfaction of some purchasers.    It  is  probably safe  to  say  that  many  buyers  with  better  birds  that have not won/Lave been loss sat-1 come a staple food the year  round,  f* 1 J.l  i    I,     .    ._         '   -.1_    I *.._._ !*.'_..

The name "tomato" seems to be of  Aztec origin, given as tomatl by some  authorities and as xitornate by others,  and still persists in some few of the  older Mexican town names, such as  Tomatlan, Tomatepec, etc.,' but the  general consensus of opinion among  botanists seems to be that the plant  arid its culture for edible purposes originated in Peru, whence it spread to  other sectjons of the Americas. It is  certain, at any rate, that it was known  and cultivated for its fruit centuries  before the Columbian discovery.  That the, individual tomato was  known to some of the European botanists over 360 years ago is evidenced by  the fact that two large varieties were  described by Malthiolus as early as  1554, but for many years it was only  in Southern Europe that the value of  the fruit for use in soups and as a' salad was recognized. It was.quite generally "used in Spain and Italy during  the seventeenth century, but in England and in iSIortliern Europe generally the plant was grown only in botanical gardens as a curiosity and for  ornamental purposes. It was seldom  eaten, being commonly regarded as  unhealthy and even poisonous. This  belief probably arose because of the  close resemblance of the plant to its  allied relative the nightshade, or belladonna, and had, of course, no foundation in fact. It "was not until the early  part of the nineteenth century that  the tomato came into general use as  a food in Northern Europe and America. Since about 1835, however, the  use and cultivation of. the vegetable  has grown to such an extent that it  has now become one of the most important of our garden crops.  When a successful process of canning the fruit was evolved.the tomato  industry at once assumed large proportions.' It ..was found that for all  cooking purposes the canned fruit was  as good as that fresh from the vine,  and- as  a result the. tomato has  be-  Hate Song- Horrifies  The Germans Now  Lis-  Campaign    Launched    to    Keep  sauer's Product Out of the  School Books  An interesting campaign has been  launched to put the lid on' Lissauer's  Chant of Hatred against Britain. Thc  Cologne Volks Zeitung, organ of the  powerful Centre party, prints the following contribution: "A Christian  cannot, today read . Lissauer's. ������������������ hate  song without having it go against his  grain, ' even despite all Britain has  done to us." The object of these lines  is to start a popular agitation to keep  the Lissauer song out of all books  which are destined for the school  children. The German press is asked  to give this agitation the widest publicity.  The. Berliner Tageblatt adds editorially:. "We read Lissauer's successful hate song at the time of its. appearance with unconcealed disapproval, for it is utterly devoid of realpat-  riotism, and merely like rubber  stamps. 'Gott strafe England' panders to certain instincts which unfortunately .come to the fore in excited  times."

This statement applies  chiefly to the feeder kind that probably  will be run  together,in  lots of  ���������The Army of  Constipation  Is Growing Smaller Every Day.

Genuine must bear Signature  isfied than they might have been had  they won out with poorer slock.  The breeder, therefore, must allow  for some of the peculiarities of human  nature, must appreciate that it may  not always be a case of the .biggest  valuo but that an occasional difficulty  will crop up in spite of all the effort  that he can make. No sale is completed until the buyer expresses satisfaction, and whether the buyer is at  fault in his judgment or not, the good  business man will not allow the matter io become a controversy but will  make a supreme effort to sec that a  most satisfactory arrangement is  made to conform to any guarantee or  agreement used by him. On some such  basis we believe the big businesses  have been built and so long as the  buyer shows evidence of making complaint entirely-in good faith the wise  man will see wherein the real difficulty seems to be and perhaps be able  to rectify it and make a pleased customer for the future.  Guarantees are no doubt a big help  In defining the basis of sale, but only  the human desire to see the sales  through to satisafction can be expected to bring the lasting results that  the breeder desires to get. This kind  of satisfaction makes the customer  feel certain the breeder is. working  in his.interest as well as his own and  allows him to raly fully on his dependability to always serve him with  the highest value. When the customer  reaches that state of confidence the  breeder has truly given the satisfac-  tion that pays.  The greatest error that could possibly be made is to over-state the  value of birds that will be shipped. Nothing can possibly be gained by it and  dissatisfaction is suro to result in  many cases. The more clearly description can be given (5)iat are exact with  the specimens the better is the selling  argument and more likely is the customer to feel the proper treatment extended. The idea that advertising that  is exaggerated is good and that without exaggeration good results are impossible has long ago bean exploded  and more and more are all classes of  advertisers coming to see that the  more exact and accurately statements  are made the most lasting are the results likely to be.  If the breeder can produce his stock  better than his neighbor and will sell  to the community: if he can successfully let it be known just what he can  supply better than the rest, he can  supply the country, and if he can supply a superior product at a fair price,  business will increase by the repeats  from satisfied customers and those  who learn from them where satisfac-  toin can \>j secured.

The Homestead Law  Women Should Have the Opportunity  of Taking up a Homestead  The Women's Council has for many  years protested against the injustice  of the Homestead Law of Canada, but,  so far, without result. No woman,  unless she be a widow with young  children, may take up a homestead.  Although a man can take up land for  his son when he reaches the age of  eighteen, he must support his grownup daughters as best he can or allow  them to leave home to earn a liveli-.  hood. In these days women who are  showing that they can cultivate tho  land in Great Britain are encouraged  to do so. *  It is riot, it is true, likely that women will live on prairie farms alone.  But the number of men who can farm  profitably as bachelors is- not great  To obtain the best results men and  women must work together. The  farm and the family belong to each  other. *   ���������  At the same time, every young woman who wishes to do so should have  the opportunity of taking uP a. homestead. The rules are not very hard to  comply with and a woman with a  taste for agriculture could, when she  had a little capital, make a home for  herself and those dependent upon her.  The teaching of agriculture to women  leads naturally to the wi3h to own  land in their own right.  The refusal of homestead rights to  women is caused by the survival of  the old spirit which refused to allow  women to attend the university and  still, in some places, closes the doors  of certain professions against them.  Women have a right to engage in any  employment for which they are fitted  by nature and education. There is no  danger for 'a long time to come, that  too many people will go on the land-  To Raze Ottawa Sagging Tower  After having slowly but steadily  sagged for years, the tower of the new  Victoria Museum in Ottawa, which has  been in a dangerous condition for the  last twelve months, is to be taken  down, and it is stated by local engineering'experts that there is a possibility that tha whole building may  have to be razed.  The Dominion public works department has already iasked for tenders for the removal of the tower.  but that necessity for protection has  long since passed away, and instead of  being useful, horns on cattle are/now  a nuisance of ��������� the worst kind-' Dehorning is a practice that may save  many dollars to stockmen, and who  is there that doesiiot need to economize, in the industry today in order  to return the profits, that satisfy?  Generally/stockmen like to run their  feeder steers loose in a large box stall  o:\ yard, and that is where the horns  are put to a use that decreases gains,  and furthermore, when a man's eyes  and face are in danger the arguments  for dehorning stand indisputable.  The process at the start is simple indeed. It has been explained time and  time again, yet during this spring we  have noticed many calves that have  been allowed to start horns which  must result in nothing less than obstacles to their profitable finishing and  that of their mates. A stick of caustie  potash moistened and rubbed on the  buttons some time before the calves  are three weeks old will prevent their  growth, and help to bring about a  polled animals. The feeder prefers the  animals without horns; they f2ed bet-,  ter, .they ship better, and they reach  the slaughter house in better shape.  This is enough to warrant the raiser  of beef cattle making liberal use of  the     caustic  potash-���������-Advocate.  and ought to use occasionally,"  a proper remedy for the  headache, backache, languor,  nervousness and depression to which she may be  subject.

Yet l.er production has' ���������        ��������� ��������� l -    ������  materially-increased, but it has failed  to keep pace with the consumption.  In twenty years the egg production  developed from . 64,'lfl!),;j4l' dozen to  123,071,024 dozen, but the- consumption increased from 11.8 per, capita, to  17.39- That is to say the individual  fondness for eggs had increased over  fifty per cent. The population grew  in those twenty years, or from 1891  to 19.11, according to the census, from  4,S33,239 to 7,204,838, an increase of  2,371,599, and the egg production  amounted up 58,571,?93 dozen. In  spite of this fact, and although, the exports fell about to zero, 2,378,640  dozen had. to be imported. In the  same time the number of poultry in  Canada grew from 12,69(J,7Ul to 29,-  548,723. Here again, although the  increase was close upon sixteen million, the imports exceeded the exports in value to the amount of $111,-  690.  Last year, the excess of imports of  eggs over exports reached the virtually enormous total of 11,150,106  dozen while of poultry in 1914 wc exported in value $206,370, but we imported $406,366, a difference of $199,-  996. These figures, striking as they  are, are almost impossible as they  seem, are yet official, being taken  from Pamphlet No. 7 of the Poultry  Division, of the Dominion Department  of Agriculture, entitled "The Egg and  Poultry Situation in Canada, with  notes upon the possible .'effect of .the  war upon tho Development of the Industry," by W. A. Brown, B.S.A.,  and can be verified on application for  the pamphlet to the Publications  Branch, Department of Agriculture,  Ottawa.  The statistics given in the pamphlet are both phenomenal and interesting. No other articles of food  have shown such an increase.in popularity. At the same time prices generally have increased and been well  maintained. .Mr. Brown does' not undertake to explain the phenomena, but  contents himself with proving that  it is so and that the increase in every,  particular is common to all the provinces. He also gives particulars, of  import of poultry, into Great Britain,  which in 1913 amounted in value "to  $5,411,684, of which Russian supplied  $1,640,923, the United Statec $999,890,  Austria-Hungary $470,767, Italv $410,-  902, China $219,472, Egypt $130,300,  Holland $121,739, Belgium $108,268,  Norway $68,960, Germany $58,005 and  Canada, seemingly, nil.  From the foregoing figures and the  general conditio.-, of things in Europe,  Mr. Brown arrives at the conclusion  that Britain will this year be short  of eggs and poultry to the amount of  a million and a half dollars, or of eggs  alone to the sum of. one hundred, million dozen. Every Canadian producer  should endeavor, therefore, to produce  this year more and better eggs and  poultry than ever before.

Good Record of C.P.R.-  Most people know that the Canadian  Pacific Railway traverses over eleven  thousand miles of country in Canada,  encounters even tropical and arctic  weathers; cuts its way through the  rugged and difficult country along  the shores of Lake Superior; crosses  the endless prairies of the west; and  finally runs through the glories of the  -Canadian Rockies where the road in  some places has.been hewn, out of the  mountain sides under towering peaks;  through great canyons; and in other  places tunnels ai:<;. spiral rails have to  be negotiated, all necessitating care in  operation. But in spite of all these  difficulties the Canadian Pacific has  not killed a single passenger in a  train accident during the past two  years, which is a record Canada can  place against the recent boast of the  Penusylavinia Railroad not having  killed a passenger in three years.  Especially so when it is considereJ  that the latter road has not the same  climate conditions to face and the  easy country through which it traverses.

C  FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29,   1915  "This damnable stute of affairs  in the matter of tbe west should not  be allowed to remain through the  mean ess of the federal government,"  declared Hon. T. C. Norris, premier  , of Manitoba, who was in Toronto  this week on his way back to Winnipeg from Ottawa. While at the  Capital he took occasion to tell Hon.  W. T. White something about tbe  condition of the grain market. He  told Mr. White, he said, that he  had better do something immediately to make wheat free.  Mr. Norris cites the tremendous  importance of free wheat not only  to the western growers, but to the  business and wealth of the whole  country.  ���������'It means 815,000,000 to the  western farmers," he declared. At  that sum he .was basing his argument on a 5 cent per bushel difference between the Canadian and  American prices. Quoting figures  compiled by the grain growers, he  showed that for 15 years the average  price in the United States has been  6 cents a bushel higher than in  Canada.  and partisan politician to disfranchise a voter, aud steal a march on  his opponent.

Wireless in Antarctic  One    of the    objects    of    Sir    E.  Shackelton's present South Polar Expedition is to establish a wireless station in the Antarctic, the staff to be  relieved once a year.    The main purpose of the station would he to keep  the     civilized  world  acquainted  with  the meteorological "conditions around  the Pole.    Theoretically the power of  such a station need not be very great  for a long distance transmission, but  ���������iluring Capt. Scott's Antarctic investigations  it  was  discovered    that  the  Aurora   australis   (the     South     Pole  equivalent of the  Aurora borealis  in  high  northern  latitudes),   by  "damping" the ether waves, somewhat counterbalanced the lessened interference  of sunshine.  Indigestion    and    Similar  Troubles Must be Treated  Through the Blood  Indigestion can be treated in many  ways, but it can only be cured in one  through the blood. Purgatives  cannot cure indigestiou. By main  force they move on the food still .nidi-,  gested. That weakens the whole system, uses up thc natural juices and  leaves the stomach and bowels parched and sore. It is actually a cause of  indigestion���������not a cure. Others try  pre-digested foods and peptonized  drugs. But drugs which digest the  food for the stomach really weaken its  power and makes the trouble chronic.  The digestive organs can never do the  work properly until they are strong  enough to do it themselves. Nothing  can give the stomach that power but  the new, rich, red blood so abundantly supplied by Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. So the reason for thc success  of this medicine is plain. Nothing  car. stimulate the glands and nothing  can absorb the nourishment from the  food but pure red������ blood. And Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, surpass all other  medicines in giving that new, rich  blood. Miss B- E. Johnson, Hemford,  N.S., says: ''For months I was a  great sufferer from indigestion; food  of any kind was distasteful to me, and  after eating 1 -would suffer much. Naturally I grew weak and was but a  shadow of my former self. T was taking a doctor's prescription, but it did  not help nic in the least. Then I road  of a case similar io my own cured  through the use of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills and I decided to try this medicine. By the time I had taken six  boxes the trouble had .entirely disappeared, and I could eat heartily of all  kinds of food- More than this I found  my general health greatly improved  through the use of the Pills. I can  therefore strongly recommend Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills as a cure for indigestion." ������  You can get these Pills through any  dealer in medicine or by. mail, post  paid, 'at 50 cents .a box or six boxes  for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville; Ont.

Scientific Station in Spitzbergan  The German Scientific Station in j  Spitsbergen, which was founded in j  1911 by Professor Hergesell, and has  been constantly in operation, summer and winter, since that time,  ceased its valuable activities at the  outbreak of the European war. A  party of scientific men which had  sailed for Spitsbergen to relieve the  staff was recalled, and the party at  the station also succeeded in getting  back to Germany safely with all  their instruments wand other equipment. This institution has carried  on extensive investigations of the  upper air with baloons, and was, in  fact, founded primarily to study the  conditions likely to be encountered  by the expedition :whicii Count Zeppelin proposed to take to the North  Pole in an airship.

Whether,  it could succeed nobody can tell- Certainly it would be attempted. It is on  this account that from Duukerque to  Calais, a .distance of some nineteen  miles and a half, there is almost a  solid British army. It is by no means1 a  . front; it,is'a solid mass of troops and  fortifications and big guns, one flank  resting on the sea, the other upon the  French army to the south. It is generally understood that if the Austro-Ger-  man armies can dispose of the Russians, can force them back into a position where they can bo held by a much  smaller force than is now pressing  against them, the German plan to detach every man they can spare to  make one last desperate effort to hack  their way through the British forces  . that stand on their way to Calais.  Before the war began it was not supposed that any invasion of England  would be possible until the British  navy had been destroyed, and since  the British navy is the largest in-the  world; the possibility of it being put  out of action was hardly considered.  ]t has been learned, however, since  the beginning of the war that Germany has guns capable of hurling a  ton of metal a distance of perhaps 26  miles. In other words, Germany has a  gun that can drop a shell from Calais  to Dover, and some miles beyond.  How many of these guns Germany has  nobody but the German authorities  know, .'but if/she can make one she  can probably make a-score, and when  one contemplates a battery of twenty  of these guns firmly placed at Calais,  and not only dropping shells into  Dover, but commanding the English  Channel, the immense importance to  either side of holding Calais becomes  apparent.  The prospect of a gun hitting a ship  twenty odd miles away does not appear great until one understands how  the range is obtained. By ^means of  floating buoys the range may be a-s  precisely obtained as though the target was 'on land- Control of tha  Channel having been secured long  enough for the Germans to set out  their buoys, and, destroy the -mines  that now protect it, other mines could  be sown, and guarded by_ a submarine  patrol and shielded by the huge guns,  which, so far as-we know, outrange by  several miles the most powerful naval  for Germany to make an attempt at  landing a few army corps in the British Isles. At the present time the. approaches to both Calais and Dover are  heavily, mined, and any vessel attempting to reach either portunless in  charge of a pilot with a map, of the  mine fields before him would-be courting destruction.  Unless these mine fields could be  cleared away the big German guns  would be useless, but mine fields can  be cleared, as has been proved by the  operations in the Dardanelles.. ,The  best -sj'stern is to explode mines in  the vicinity of, anchored mines. This  may be done Neither-by:���������'.towing the  counter mines oyer the mine fields,  and exploding them by wires leading  from the towing boats, or it may be  clone by naval guns dropping high explosive shells upon the mines, the explosion being timed to take place a  few feet under water. Since it would  be necessary to clear a space of only  some eighty square miles, it will be  plain that the task would be no insuperable one. The big guns mounted at Calais, and the Channel cleared  of mines, the Germans'���������; wuold then'  sow mines of their own, and on the  inside: of this narrow lane they could  operate their submarines. The peril  of warships entering, the mined area,  in range of the Calais guns, the mines  themselves and the submarines would  be great.  However, Germany will have to win  a greater victory than she has yet  achieved in this war before she can  get to Calais, and once established in  Calais she will have to face attacks  from both land and sea before she can  get her big guns in position. Having  the guns mounted there, commanding  noi English-Channel, but a very narrow strip of it, her mine destroyers  and mine layers will have to face Brife  isk ships operating on the outskirts  of the lane, out of range of the big'  guns, and yet with the mine layers in  their range. Moreover, as she proceeds with her task of clearing the  Channel her shins will come into  range of the British guns at Dover,  as well as "the guns of the British  ships near by. Finally, before any  landing is possible she will have to  smuggle'her fleet, or a part of it, out  of the Kiel Canal to guard1 her; transports. On the whole, the Kaiser would  appear to have about exactly the same  chance of landing an army in England  that he has of winning this war.  Britain's Concern  For Canada's Grain  Anxiety  Over the Question of Ocean  Transport  British authorities are interested in  the movement of Canada's wheftt this  fall. They have' asked the Canadian  government for an estimatj of the  quantity which will be available for  export, and when the movement can  be started.  An estimate is being made by the  Grain Exchanges and similar authorities. An unofficial calculation  places the exportable amount of Canadian wheat at a hundred and seventy-  five million dollars' worth.  In Canada there has been anxiety  over the question of ocean transport.  Tonnage has been short since the war  began. For a time it was difficult to  secure ships to carry hay and oats  from Canada to the armies- The  British government solved this problem by providing a fleet of eighteen  freight ships. It is hoped that the  admiralty may do something of the  same kind to help the movement of  wheat this fall.  If the-Gritish authorities do this it  will solve one great problem, and will  leave only thc difficulty of exchange  to be dealt with. With the present  rate of exchange against London the  business of paying for Canadian wheat  is a matter of delicate negotiation.  It is not, however, believed that the  negotiations of the British authorities  include anything in the nature of a  proposal to purchase the Canadian  crop at a fixed price. The authorities in Ottawa do not believe that any  such  proposal  will  be  advanced.  Scope of the Red Cross  Using Washing Soda  Washing soda is a strong alkali  and must be used cautiously as a  cleanser. Used in cleaning cooking  utensils while it "eats" thc grease and  the scorch, it also eats the metals of  which the pots are made. When a  woman carelessly throws a "handful  of soda" into a pot, or "lets it soak,"  she is soaking the scorch and the  metal, too. That is one reason many  pans chip or "wear out" easily. Washing soda is better employed in cleaning the sink and waste pipes.  This Worthy Society Should be Endowed in a Permanent Way  The scope of the Red Cross is practically unlimited. The idea of universal charity which actuates this Samaritan society is capable of indefinite extension. The war has been like an immense microscope which has revealed  Red Cross opportunities in increasing  magnitudes.  The primary intention of the founder of the. Red Cross was to give the  wounded lying on the battlefields immediate attention-  The Red Cross now aims not only to  succor the wounded in the actual firing zone but also to nurse them back  to complete health, in base and convalescent hospitals. It has further extended its scope to include prisoners  of war, and it is now beginning to see  that all misery occasioned by the war,  even in its most ultimate effects, is a  proper object of Red Ci'oss activity.  The war executive of the British  Red Cross has lately decided that the  care of those totally incapacitated by  the war is work that properly devolves on the Red Cross, provided  that the funds permit. It is thus evident, that though armies may disband,  the Red Cross never can disband. It  has become one of the most fundamental institutions of modern civilization. Its success and prosperity are  tha supreme test of our humanitarian-  ism. The state of the Red Cross treasury is a decisive index of our capacity  for universal sympathy.  The immense task which confronts  the Red Cross should stimulate the  public to endow this worthy society  in a permanent way. The movement  on foot in a great ri.any Canadian  towns to provide the Red Cross with  a certain and annual income is a policy which should be encouraged and  developed. A flourishing Red Cross  is as much a crito:-.:n of true national  g-.-eatness as a triumphant army.  A. Conan Doyle Suggests Shields and  Helmets For-Soldiers,,  Sir A. Conan Doyle, in a letter  printed in the London Times, advocates the use of armor in modern warfare.  "When Ned Kelly, the bush ranger,  walked unhurt before the rifles of the  police, clad in his own hand-made armor he was an, object lesson to the  world,".'writes "Sherlock Holmes.', "If  the outlaw could do it, why ��������� not the  soldier?"  "Such actions as that of May 9,  where several brigades lost nearly  half their number in endeavoring tJ  rush over the 300 yards which separated us from the German trenches, must  make it clear that it is absolutely impossible for unprotected troops to  pass over a zone which is swept by  machine guns. Thererore you must  either forever abandon such attacks  or you must find artificial protection  for the men.  "It has always seemed extraordinary to the writer that the innumerable  cases where a Bible, a cigarette case,  a watch, or some other c?.ar.ee article has saved a man's life have not  set us scheming so as to do tystemati-  cally what has so often, bean the re-  jjtiit of a happy-chance.  :'���������': "Ao a man faces a hostil .��������� rifle his  forehead and his heart are the only  points presented which are certainly  vital. The former would be protected  by such a helmet as the Frcnch<havo  how evolved., The second should be  covered by a curved plate of highl/  tempered steel, which heed not be  more than a foot in diameter. With  this simple and light equipment the  two cefttres of life are safe.      ��������� '  "With these precautions the death  rate should be greatly reduced from  rifle .and machine-gun fire as also from  shrapnel. Nothing, of course, will  avail against a direct shell burst, but  granting that the individual life would  be saved this does not bear -upon the  capture of a position, since so many  y would fall wounded that the weight  of the attack would be spent before  the stormers reached the trenches.  "For this armor which will give  complete protection is needed, and  since, as your correspondents,; have  shown, the .weight "of this is mora than  a man can readily carry, it-must be  !piished in front upon wheels."  Sir Conan Doyle pictures a great  number of: plxt.es,. held together like  the; shields of a Roman tortoise, and  pushad: by the men,-'who crouch behind them. When one'is disabled it  can be. readily.dropped," and the gap  closed. Others are fixed sideways  upon their wheels, and used upon the  flank of the advance to prevent an enfilading fire. There is not one tortoise, which would attract a concentrated fire of artillery, bu', each company or platoon forms its own.  These numerous armor plated  bodies; rush with small loss over the  space, which has already been cleared  as far as possible of obstacles, and so  have some chance of reaching the  enemy's lines, not as an exhausted  fragment, but as a vigorous storming,  party with numbers intact.  SHOULD MAKE ATTRACTIVE AND SPECIAL DISPLAY  Mr. John W. Harper of New York  last survivor of the Harper Brothers,  book and magazine publishers, died on  ���������August 14C*;' at his country residence  at Biddlef(-d Pool, Maine. He was 84  years of aga. There were four Harper  Brothers and they all became well  known as publishers. They came of  an old Long Island family. The grandfather, James Harper, was a farmer  and teacher, who lived at Newtown,  L.I. The father of the four Harper  boys was a jack-of-all-lrades, who  ���������worked up and down Long Island.  Germany's Crime  It is no mere rhetoric or sentiment  which speaks of the nations as finding their souls in this struggle, nor  are we doing the Germans an injustice:  if wa say that the leading characteristic of German conduct is the repudiation in public relations of everything  that belongs to the soul in private relations. There is no concealment  about this, and it cannot be called a  malevolent inference of their enemies,  for it is an avowed part of their philosophy of life that there is no law  which binds their osvn state or can  limit its action in war or peace. To  them it is merely stupid to speak, as  the bishop does, of hope, faith and  lova prevailing in the world or regulating the dealings of modern nations-  ���������Westminster Gazette. .  Improving Trade Prospects  Indications Point to a Considerable  Measure of Buoyancy  The Guide'says in part: "Accord-  in-; to the last Dominion census there  are 204,140 farms in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. The estimated value of these principal crops alone  would give each farmar in Western  Canada an income this year of nearly  $1,700. In.New York state alone the  average income per family is under  $600. The Western Canadian farmer  is in a better position financially than  any other class in this district. The  fall of 1914 saw a general tightening  of credits. Less material was probably sold to the farmer, but collections  were closer and'mortgages were re-!  ducad or wiped off completely As a  result, the country districts faced  1915 with less encumbrance of debt  than '-formerly,/ and if the 1915 crop  harvests as promised, the farmer of  the Canadian prairies is the best logical object of the business man's attention from the Great Lakes to the  Pacific Ocean." In other words, the  big return from the incoming Canadian crops warrants Canadian wholesale and retail merchants in preparing  for improved trade conditions almost  immadiataly. The demand for mer-  chandside of all kinds will be felt even  by the manufacturers and increase  western-bound business on the railways. At the same time orders for  munitions and other war supplies are  circulating a great deal of money  throughout thc country- We do not  look for and do not want a boom, but  it seems probable that even during  the war Canadian trade may recover  a considerable measure of buoyancy.  ���������Toronto Naws.  The Store in the Small Country Town has Opportunities that are  Denied to the Larger Towns, and their is Good Business  In Many Special Lines not Usually Carried in Stock  be procurable in Gaspe. Salesmen  finding this out, do their utmost to  induce sportsmen on future occasions  to leave their tackle wants until they  reach Gaspe. -  If the fishing industry brings only a  'small: amount of business in flies,  hooks, leaders, rods, reels, etc., to tho  Gaspe general stores, it helps cut well  in other directions. Wealthy Canadians and Americans who bring their  yachts here every year, send their  orders ahead to the guides, who purchase foodstuffs at local stores, the order including large supplier of tobacco and cigars. River guides are paid  handsomely by their employers/and  when the season's work, is done, much  of the money received is spent on  hardware. Many of these men trap in  winter, and business goes to the general stores for trappers' suppl;es.  Cordage and nets are important  items in this part of the country. A  big demand is felt for a 12-15 thread,  of which Robin, Jones and Whitman  dispose of about fifty coils every year.  Of salmon twine they sell about a  thousand pounds per year, this being  used by the local fishermen for making nets-      It has been said earlier in this article that small, out-of-the-way places  like Gaspe offer opportunities not  available to dealers ii. the town. Two  lines successfully carried by this firm  are gramophones and cameras, and  supplies. Very little was done in  gramophones until' recently. Last  year the turnover in this department  amounted to five hundred dollars,  chiefly in records. In order to push  this line, a machine is kept on view,  all the time, and now and again, a  tune is played.  The photograph end of the business  has assumed large proportions, so that  it is now almost a department in itself. No deveolping or printing is  done. Competition with mail order  houses at 5 cents a film is almost impossible. Also,;whereas a tourist needs���������.  a roll of films immediately, he can usually afford to wait to have his film  developed. 'Photographic, supplies  have been handled now for two years,  arid this year the business done is four  times that of the first year- A good  line of cameras is handled, also films,  trays, printing frames, etc.. One sale  'took-"placei while the writer was in the  store. A tourist had been looking at  one or two cameras, but was leaving  the store without purchasing. He was  stopped by the buyer, to whom he explained that the five dollar camera in  stock did not close very well, tie was  shown a $10 one, was asked to try it,  and if it did not give satisfaction, to  bring it back. Pie took the camera, and  paid for it.  . There is a regular demand for. canoe  nails. Saveral firms make Gaspe  canoes, a canoe known all over the  country as specially suited to salmon  fishing in the rivers. Some Gaspe  builders make as many as forty of  these canoes per year.���������Hardware &  Metal. >������������������  Unless he has been there, the average person has only a hazy idea of  what Gaspe is. He gets the name  mixed up wtih salmon, basin, penisula,  coast, etc., and only when he has landed safely at Bakers ���������-Hotel, does he  realize that there is a village bearing  the nama of Gaspe, Que., with half a  dozen stores and, a number of houses.  The chief industries are fishing and  lumbering. The population is approximately 1,000 and the town is located  on the south side of the harbor formed  by Gaspe Bay.  The stores draw trade from the residents, tourists in summer, and from  farmers and fishermen; They are all  typical general stores, most of them  having.nothing in the: way of display  windows, many of the windows being  composed of small panes. The largest  store has a modern:front, but there is  not the incentive to make attractive  displays there is in a city. Yet this  store finds that by making moderate  displays, their business improves. :  The equipment and displays are in  many instances superior to those in  some of the city stores. The-fixtures,  while not of the latest type, are clean  and attractive: The show: cases are  modern, well triinnied/and bring in a  lot of extra business. There is a cash  carrier system, a well-appointed office  in the gallery, and a second floor,  equipped with crienclid wardrobes for  clothing, and large stocks of heavy  goods.  Furniture is also carried in stock."  The store in the small country town  has opportunities that are denied to  the larger towns. Gaspe has no exclusive hardware store; consequently  this business is divided up between  the general stores- Robin, Jones &  Whitman have spent considerable  money making a department worthy  of the name of hardware���������an unusually fine one for so smalla town.  It was remarked that in a town like  this there are opportunities for selling  lines"' peculiarly adapted to country  towns. Take tha case of flashlights. Almost everybody who can afford one,  carries a flashlight around at nights,  for the town has no illumination of  any kind. The sidewalks in places  are dangerous, but it is not necessary  for a man to break his neck before he  becomes a prospect. This firm made a  point of keeping a good line, selling,  for a dollar or a dollar and a half.  When a large number of flashes have  been disposed of, there is a regular  sale of batteries.  In the fall it is customary to make  special displays, and on specially dark  nights in winter, they are shown on  the counters, etc.  Among the most admirable things  seen in this store by the writer was a  showcase of fishing'tackle. As everybody knows. Gaspe is-noted across the  continent for its salmon and trout fishing, and followers* of the sport are j  among the most profitable tourists to  the town. Unfortunately for the hard-  wireman, it often happens that fishermen bring their tackle along with  them,_fearing that  supplies  will not  Canada's War Contribution  Canada has not dealt in billions of  dollars and millions of men, but Canada has nevertheless made commensurate war sacrifices in money, suffering and blood. The temper of the  Canadian soldier has already been  proven and approved in the theatra of  war, but the same bravery of the home  people in facing a rapidly rising public debt has had a much less spectacular setting. France, England and  evon Belgium are fighting and making  sacrifices���������but no greater sacrifices in  proportion���������in the midst of a struggle  that actually threatens their existence  but Canada is giving lavishly of her  best blood and money without any  thought that physically, at least, she  is in danger from the Teuton. Both  life and money are more precious,  too, to a country just entering upon  a period of national development. Canada is giving humanity one of the real  returns of a frightful war. It is the  triumph or the purest patriotism and  unselfish devotion to the mother  country.^���������Chicago Tribune-  Modern Entrenching Spade  Invention of a Canadian Proving Its  Value   in  the  War  The present Canadian: entrenching  spade is a very notable and admirable  exception to the general rule,"' that  combination tools are not a success.  It is an invention of a Canadian "and  is protected by a Canadian patent. It  is one of the very first patented inventions to be extensively used by- thc  Canadian forcas in this great war. It  combines in one very simple and effic-  ent device, two very distinct and highly important instruments, i.e., the entrenching spade itself, and a shield  and rifle rest. It is simply a spade  blade of well known shape but of  ! specially hard steel, which will act as  ' a shield. It is made to be readily detachable from its handle- A little to  one side of its centre it is provided  with an opening larger than a rifle  barrel. Through this, the soldier can  thrust his rifle, the hole being sufficiently large to enable him to sight it.  With the blade driven vertically into  the ground, the rifle rests ou the lower  wall of this opening and thus has its  weight easily supported. While crouching behind the blade in firing, the soldier is amply protected.  This device is actually in use on the  firing line in large numbers, Jt is one  of the fj.iw inventions made since the  opening of the war r.nd almost immediately put into use, extensively.  Thc army jind navy officials in England ( France, Italy, Canada and the  United States, as well as the patent  offices of these countries are being  continually flooded with thousands of  inventions for all possible uses in this  war, and it is highly probable that one  result of the war may be the production of many really valuable inventions which would otherwise never  have come to light-  U.

These   went   for   the   most  part to the armies of Great Britain,  France, Belgium and Italy, and were  purchased by agents of these governments  in all sections of the  United  States and shipped chiefly from New  York   City,   Newport   News,   Norfolk,  Philadelphia, Baltimore and New Orleans-  These figures stand out prominently  in the full tabulation of imports and  exports for the United States for the  fiscal year, and were annouonced by  the bureau of foreign and domestic  commerce. The total imports are  shown to be $1,074,169,740, approximately $21!),000,000 less than . last  year; the total exports are given as  $2,768,489,340, about $400,000,000 tnora  than last year.  One of the marked points of the  tabulation is the fact that the exporta-  tions to Germany for thc year amounted to $28,863,354, whereas, a year ago  they amounted to .$.'144,794,276. Austria-Hungary's exportatioris amounted  to $1,240,000, compared with $22,718,-  25S last year.  This is far more than offset, however, by the exports to the United  Kingdom, France and Russia. The  L'nited Kingdom took from the United Slates in the fiscal year, goods  :.-'.ounting to $911,802,454, as compared with $504,271,863 last year; Franco  took goods valued at $3G9,397,170, as  compared with .$159,818,924 last year,  and Russia, $37,474,380, as compared  with  $30,088,643  last year.
