( Continued on Page 5.)  ND FORKS  HOSPITAL OPEN!  Dr. Kingston's ne*v Grand Forks  hospital was opened for patients this  week, and the Cottage hospital has  been closed. The new hopital is a  a large, substantial building, con  structed of concrete blocks, of pleasing architectural design, and is  strictly modern in every respect. It  is large enough for the requirements  of a city two or three times the size  of Grand Forks, and is undoubtedly  the best oncl most conveniently ar  ranged hospital building in south  ern British Columbia. The doctor  deserves a great deal of credit for  his perseverance in bringing this enterprise to a successful end.  fects and interests in this valley except his ranch, and his brother, A.  D. Morrison, will look after that for  him. Mrs. Morrison and daughter  have been living in Toronto for the  past three or four months.  The. breaking of plate glass in  store windows appears to have become epidemic once more. ^This  week one of the windows in the  Boundary Feed & Supply company's store was smashed. It would  probably teach some of the dt-gen  erates who engage in thts vicious  pastime a salutary lesson if tbe police could apprehend tbem and  make an example of them. People  in the .country also complain of  their orchards and gardens being  robbed, in some instances on a commercial scale. Tbe provincial police  should look after these night raiders. The producers at home, who  help to support the armies of the  empire, are entitled to protection  from marauders, and they should  have it.  The members of the Independent  Company of Riiles say they were  royally entertained at tbe Greenwood fair last Friday.  The Emma mine is being pumped  out. This property may soon be  shipping 100 tous of ore daily to the  Greenwood smelter.  S. P. Dixon and Sam Wickwire,  having completed the cement sidewalk at the government building,  have returned to Greenwood.  Tom Peck is again handling the  punch on the Boundary C. P. K.  passenger train. Conductor Mesker  is coking a two weeks' vacation.  Six   new   recruits   were added to  the Independent Company of Rifles  Ibis week. \  Between twenty-five and thirty  Grand Forks people attended the  Greenwood fair last Friday.

Thanksgiving Services  The Thanksgiving season will be  appropriately observed at the Methodist church on Sunday, the iOth,  at both services, jn the morning  the music will be in charge of the  junior choir under the. leadership  of Arnold Carter, and will include  the. following items: Duet and  chorus, '-Why Stand Ye Here  Idle,"Excel); solo and chorus,"Help  Somebody Today," Gabriel.  In the evening a special thanksgiving song service will be held, to  which all are cordially invited. The  following is the order of .service:  Doxology; invocation; hymn, "Come  Ye Thankful People, Come" (910);  prayer; anthem, "The Radiant  Morn," Woodward; lesson; mixed  quartette, ''Jesus the Very Thought  of Thee''; hymn, "Sing to the  Lord  Peter A. Z. Pare, the rancher, is  writing a serial story. The first  chapter, which deals with the experiences of a man attempting to'  learn to operate a bicycle coaster  brake, is now ready for the printer.  It contaius a thrill in every word;  Word was received in the city yesterday that J. C. MacDouald had  died at Rescue, Cal., on Wednesday.  Mr. MacDonald was master mechanic  at the Granby smelter iu 1901-2. He  resignsd from that position to establish the Grand Forks Steel & Structural Iron Worksjwhich he ennducted  in partnership with his brother, Angus, nntil the plant was moved to  Vancouver. After accumlating a fortune in the iron and contracting business Mr. MacDonald retired from  active life, and of late years he has  been living in California. He had  many 'warm personal friends in Graod  Forks.  Grand Forks poultrymen won tbe  following  prizes   at  the Greenwood  fair:    Utility   pen,   Wm.   Liddicoat  1st, J. A.

F Laws tendered the directors  of the Grand Forks Agricultural asso  ciation a banquei at the Yale hotel on  Wednesday night in commemoration  of the splendid success of the sixth  annual fair. Good cheer prevailed  during the evening, and nearly every  one present contributed toward making the occasion a pleasant one by  making a brief speach.  W. J. Meagher received word from  the coast on VVednesday that he had  lost his case fur damages against the  Granby company. The case was tried  in this city about four months ago,  Judge MacDonald presiding. Mr.  Meagher was crippled for life while  employed in the Granby smelter a year  ago. Much sympathy is expressed  by the citizens for  Mr. Meagher.  MILL  IMPROVEMENTS  Development on an unusually large  scale of the British Columbia Copper  company's holdings, in British Columbia will be made at once, according to statements, made by Oscar  Laohmund. who has returned to  Greenwood from a business trip to  Portland,'Ore., and. points in California. Mr. Lachmund outlines the  company's plans as follows:  Eventually we plan to erect a 2000-  ton daily capacity concentrator at our  Copper mountain properties, which  will cost about 8500,000. This will be  operated by a power plant, either at  Princeton or Coalmont, that will require approximately 8300,000 to construct and equip, and if the Kettle  Valley railway does not extend its  line to Copper mountain we will construct an aerial tram from the camp  to Princeton, about nine miles.  This feature of our plans is contingent upon the action of the railway  company, and no definite decision will  be reached until we know if the line  from Priuceton to the camp is to be  built. We have the ore tonnage to assure sufficient revenue to justify  building the line, and it probably will  be constructed. We have S,000,000  tons of ore proven at Copper mountain  that will run 1.75 per cent copper,  with a profitable additional reserve of  2,000,000 tons of the same grade.  The properties have been extensively  explored by diamond drills and we  are ready to begin permanent development at any time. We did 28,000  feet of diamond drilling there last  year, besides opening an extensive  series of surface trenches, pits and  shallow shafts, and we have three  diamond drills operating now, each  making about 33 feet daily. This has  demonstrated the existence of enough  ore to justify the construction of the  concentrator, power plant and trarr:-  way.  At Greenwood we are treating  about 860 tons of copper ore daily,  principally from the Mother Lode  mine and the Lone Star. We are  working 100 men at the Mother Lode,  25 at the Lone Star and 55 in the  smelter, where we are operating hut  one furnace on acceunt of ore short-  custom   ship-  age.  VV  e arc  treating  ments from Oroville and Republic  and formerly we handled the output  of several Coeur d'Alene properties.  Eventually we hope to build up a big  custom trade in thc northwest, on  both sifles of the line.  Engineer James Blake and. Wm  Meade, of the Canadian Pacific railway, returned on Saturday from a  hunting trip through the Okanagan  country. They brought home all the  game they could canveniently carry.  They obtained excellent photographs  of the deer they left behind.  of Harvest" (908); lesson; duet,' erel, 1st aud 2nd hen, 1st pullet, 1st  "The Morning Land," Phelps; ser- pen; best pen in show,Black Orping-  mon, "Why a Thanksgiving?" an tons, VV.

Dewdney recently wired fo  the minister of militia at Ottawa,  stating lhat the people of Greenwood  had raised money for two machine  guns, and wished to present them  to the oith battalion. As the oeo-  ple of Greenwood and district were  the first to subscribe for machine  guns, it was felt that the money  subscribed should be used for that  purpose. The factory can deliver  the guns in January. Mr. Dewdney  received an answer by wire as follows:  "Ottawa, Sept. 27, 1915. ��������� Lettergram 25th received, and will accept your guns with pleasure. They  can be obtained only through  mtlitia department. Will be able to  supply you by date named. If you  send cheque, matter will bo attended  to.���������Sam HcfiiiEs."

A BRIGHT TOBACCO OP THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS PER PLUG  Chicks That Are  Late Hatched  They  Do Not Get the Same Attention  the  Earlier Ones Get  'rime aini again do you see and hear  Uk statement that any chicks that are  hatched later than say June 1st never  amount' to   anything.     Surely   where  such   an   idea   seems, so   common   it  ���������mist,   be   so   or   something"  must   be  wiong  with  the  way  these birds are  handled.    Jn our own opinion the, latter   is  the  case for  tlie later chicks  nine cases out of ten do hot begin to  *i,<'i. the same  attention or  treatment  the- earlier ones get.  Tiiere are several reasons that may  Lf ascribed .to this. Human nature  ���������stems to enthuse much more over the  tne accomplishment of anything* during the early stage." and before many  ���������liiiieuLties present themselves. The  tariy spring is usually like the starting'point of each and enthusiasm is  at its ���������highest, for'the production of a  line lot of chicks. All is carefully  planned- Correct methods outlined  ���������and tha first few hatches get the best  of-attention. Then the birds begin to  crowd and the smaller ones get less  and less attention in the enthusiasm  to keep those showing promise coming  f.iong*. Instead of giving closer attention "to the smaller chicks and letting*  lhe bigger ones shift more for ,tliemr  ieives which they better can, the opposite is usually the case. When we  consider that there are possibilities  in many of these late hatched chicks  lor making lhe very best of birds with  proper treatment, it seems a serious  waste to simply let them die off after  going to the expense andvtrouble of  hatching them. . "**  The experience as to number hatched and appearance o'* the chicks would  srem io show that summer chicks  Fhoiilrl.have as good or better a chance  than chickens hatched at almost any  other time. Right from start to finish  if they.are given the same fa-ir chance  f.j. the earlier ones almost better re-  suits may be hoped for from them. Of  i-ourse they will not be matured when  it begins to settle into cold weather,  find'unless kept coming right along  will become sfui-ted and remain way  under size. It is, of course, out of the  tjijestion to try to keep them where  1 hey: will be beaten about by birds  bigger than themselves. Under these  '���������onditions they don't get more than  half.enough to eat and are so worried  and kept at a distance that what lhey  consume could not. furnish growth, at  .-.-profit.  Naturally these late hatched birds  will now be ^el! aiong and those that  "hate .riot'survived, the hardships of a  1 oor start have fallen out of the flock  Wiving birds that may or may not be  ���������finished into something worth while.  In view of past experience it is well  worth while to make the most of any  ol these that arc growing in a fairly  satisfactory way and handle ilicm as  inough everything depended on their  getting the greatest consideration.  Anyone who experiences the surprise  of "seeing some of these birds fairly  stride into prominence and' perhaps  overshadowing earlier birds that prom-  isiied to be exceptional that have been  (he idols of the place will realize the  value of giving these birds 'every  chance.  For the past two years we-havc  made a practice of putting backward  males that gave appearance of promise' with flocks of females to train  them to consider themselves "Gock's-  of-the-walk" and the result is almost  instantaneous. Many a good "bird has  been developed in this way that was  destined to be a disheartened good-for-  nothing, in this respect the birds are  much like humans, so long as enthusiasm is high and no discouragements  arise we are inclined to make the best  of progress but hold us down so rhat  no initiative or freedom can be exercised and all our growth and activities  are immenselv dwarfed.  Gel the later ones by themselves  anil treat them as though no other  fowls wevz about. Get them housed  in winter quarters and kill and bury  :m:v weak or sickly ones.

Keep the Land Clean  Application of Manure  Profitable  Practice to  Keep  Fertilizer  Comparatively Near the Surface  There  is always a loss" of. soil  fertility and good farming methods seek  to constantly replenish    the soil with  humus,    the    larger    will be the inevitable   loss   due   to   natural     farm  operations.   There is.a limit to which  we   can    enrich, soils,    and that limit;  is    determined  probably by  climatic |  conditions,    and    partly probably '.by j  soil conditions:    there    is a limit be-1  vond   which  it  would not pay to put���������  plant    food    in', the    soil.    There  is j  greater economy in. frequency of ap- j  'nlicafion,    for thereby we reduce the  ���������natural   waste  of  fertility.    On most  soils,  particularly    light soils*5.tons  per  acre   every   third   year  will   give  a  better  return   than  20   tons -every  sixth vear, simply because there will  be les's loss.    Of course, the Question  of  labor  has   to   bs   considered   in   a  matter of this kind:    but    inasmuch  as we require three meals a day and  cannot  get the same benefit by taking one    meal a-day, so we think it  would   be   more   economical   for   our  plants to be fed every year than to endeavor to load  up the- soil, say once  in  five or in  ten years, as the  case  might be- ,"',",.     (  The larger number of the feeding \  roots lie fairly close to the surface;  at least, in humid districts. In arid  and semi-arid countries there is a  tendencv for the roots to go down  ���������il'tcr moisture, and we may have'a  ���������Irv earth mulch of six or eight  inches in which there will be no  feeding roots, or practically none.  The roots of plants lake in their loot!  in the form of a solution, and therefore the roots must go down to water  to t*-et 1 heir food. Speaking of East-  erifcanada, where there is an ample  precipitation? usually and this is  fairlv well distributed throughout  the season, we find-the larger number of the feeding roots fairly  to the" surface, say v  six inches of soil,  case, we do not thinl  economy in burying  There .will be a larger  limited amount of manure by  turning     it.     under,     or     by-  close  ithin the first  f such is the  there is any  (he manure,  return from a  lightly  merely  carrying* it in to the prepared surface,  as bv discing, than by burying it by  deep" ploughing. Of course, there are  soils which need deepening, and that  should be done gradually; aud there  is no doubt that the deeper the surface soil is. the better condition the  soil is in" to conserve moisture. But  we have to consider that we have  only a limited amount of manure������������������  and unfortunately it is in all too  small quantities on the majority of  our farms���������and we have to make the  most of it. Consequently, we think  it is going to be a more profitable  practice to keep the manure comparatively  Evsry Means Should be Used to Keep  Land Clean of Weeds  Persons traveling* through the country this summer speak, with misgivings of the amount of weed growths  to be seen.scattered through splendid  f grain, ft would be most'mile if, through lack <of precautions, (he spread of wild and pernicious plants should become more gen-  era], in the province, of which' there is  grave danger once the pesls become  rooted in the soil and are allowed to  grow and ripen. Every careful far. i-  ers fears the spread of flic seed of  these plants as he fears a plague being-  aware of the damage they su-a capable  of doing. r '.���������.-  To eradicate or prevent the spread  of noxious weeds, hard work and  care or the utmost vigilance.are necessary, for these things do not right  themselves without an effort on the  part of the farmer.

Attacked years ago. iust.ead of  washing* out the spots from its garments and keeping them clean, it organized to fight back. It talks eloquently.of compensation for property  injured by the enactment of prohibitory laws, but the farmer who, year  after year, against law and warning,  permits millions of noxious weeds to  grow, till finally the whole community  becomes infested, may. count himself  fortunate if he should escape "without  having to pay for the work of cutting  and burning his green crop and for  damage done to his neighbor's, and  he will not raise the question of damages, lest even-handed jutsice 'shall  brankrupt him. Likewise the sum invested in ali breweries, distilleries  and usaolesale and retail liquor houses  would only be a tithe toward paying  for Ilia havoc wrought by drink even  in material matters."        .  The careful farmer does not have to  be told of the loss to himself through  permitting his land to become "dirty."  He uses every means in his power to  keep his place clear of weeds, yet fhe  unfortunate thing is that he is largely at the mercy of his neighbors in  this.respect, and no matter how vigilant the inspectors are, there is bound  to: be more or less spread of weeds  from the farm, the owner of which  does not show himself sufficiently  alive to the seriousness of the matter  to take upon himself the eradication  of deleterious growths. The provincial  and municipal governments can do  much to save the land from weeds,  but (here is no remedies like those  which rest with the owners themselves.���������Saskatoon Star.

Construct the frame work of a cupboard from four 2x2 posts, and line  the inside of the cupboard with wire  netting to make it proof against mice  and flies- On the outside of the cupboard, so that it will not touch tlie  wire netting, tack burlap. For the  top of the cupboard have the tinner  make a galvanized iron tank exactly  lire size of the cupboard, and four to  six inches deep. The bottom of the  tank forms the top of the cupboard.  Keep the tank full of water, wet the  burlap thoroughly, and hang woollen  clothes around three sides of the  tank. These cloths carry water from  the tank to the burlap and the evaporation of the water serves to cool  the inside of the refrigerator.  (By Grace Yiall Gray, in the Country  Gentleman)  One day a farmer came into his  house to find his wife dressed for  driving.  "Where, are you going?" lie asked.  "Didn't you go to town yesterday for  the, groceries?" ,  .  "1 am going out to form a rural  club," she replied and with that she  tied the baby's-bonnet and asked (he  husband fo carry his daughter lo the  carriage.  J3ut he, manlike, still persisted iu  knowing* more about this new, unexpected project of his wife's, so he  "asked: ''What's lhe idea, .Mary?  Haven't- you enough to do without  adding more to your work?"  Her answer silenced him for (ha  time at least: ''John,-look here..* We  have been married three years. 1 have I  told you all I know and yon have told  me all'you know, so I'm going to form  a   club "and   learn  something  new."  Such was the beginning of a rural  club in Wisconsin.

"Why  is thc club so necessary?" Vou wil'i  find our answer in all the little rural  clubs that are now scattered over the.  states���������each one making' life more in-  teresling for its members and their  families.  The women in them seem lo feel -  that one of (he greatest things that  result from their club meetings is a.  closer and doarsr relationship among  neighbors.

Iowa, fell the need of.a little sociability and met very informally at one another's homes. Gradually (he idea of  a club with studies grew, until now  these women have a thoroughly successful, practical and useful club.  One of the best and most satisfactory ways to go about forming a club  is to co-operate with the woman's club  in town. There should be greater cooperation between town and country  women, and there is no better" place to  start than in thc organization of your  club. The town women, with their  greater facilities for study and library work and with their past experience, can bo a great source of help  io you.  One valuable source of information  for country women is tlie state agricultural -college. A card dropped to  the agricultural college of the slate  in which you live will bring, free of  charge, any ������������������pamphlets, leaflets, programme outlines and so on, that it  may have. Frequently an'extension  worker can be obtained to organize  or address a club -*t the state's expense. The club that makes such a  request usually pays carfare and incidental expenses, such as entertainment, while the instructor is in town.  Sometimes the teacher, who has  charge of your country school will be  glad to act as a leader in getting* the  club under way. The schoolhouse  makes an admirable meeting place.

Tlie woman who once in  ' two weeks dresses her prettiest and  drives to some friend's house to meet  ten or (ifteen friends has a little variety, a Utile spice added to her life.  As one rural-club pioneer writes me:  "Country women have not-the opportunities to attend educational lectures, concerts and entertainments  that (own women have, and a well-  conducted club with a serious, varied  course of study (ills the need to a  great extent. Country women are no;  distracted by the multitude of activities that assail town women all thc-  time. Hence they are more responsive to club work. The meetings relieve Die monotony of a somewha;  quiet existence, and for 'many' "busy  women furnish the only, chance to see  and visit good neighbors with any frequency aud regularity."

Will     Operate     Oil-Burning  Locomotives   in   Mountain  Section  Mr.   Morley   Donaldson,   vice-president of the Grand Trunk Pacilie Railway^** announces   that  the  installation  of  oil-burning  locomotives     on     the  mountain section of tiie line has now  been  completed.     These   locomotives  are of the most modern type and were  placed  iu service  for  passenger traffic.    They are operating from Jasper  to  Prince  Rupert,  over 719  miles  of  main line.  Especial interest attaches to the installation of this class of motive  power, as it marks the first use of oil  burners on au extensive scale in Canada. Great oil storage tanks have  been erected at various points along  the line for supplying locomotives  with the necessary fuel. With the  operation of these locomotives there  is a complete absence of the discomforts which sometimes arise from the  use of coal with its tendency to give  off  dust aud grit.  The section of the line on which  these locomotives are being used  passes through the finest scenic territory in the Canadian Rockies and  the absence of coal dust, it is believed, will add to the pleasure of tha  journey.  The' Grand Trunk Pacific Steamships '"Prince George" and '"Prince  Rupert," -which operate from the  Pacific terminal of the* line at Prince  Rupert to Victoria, Vancouver and  Seattle, are also oil burners, and this  gives the Grand Trunk Pacific nearly  1,51-1) miles of rail and wat^r route  oa which this form of fuel only is  used.

Asquith stated-in the house of  commons' that the total casualties in  all ranks of the French and Mediterranean Expeditionary Forces u pto  May 31 'were i'oS.COS. He gave details  showing how many officers and how  many men "of other,ranks" had been  killed, were wounded, and were missing  up   to  that  date.  In its evening edition of the following day, namely the 10th tilt.,  the Tagltciie Rundschau, of Berlin,  published a telegram from its special  correspondent at The Hague in which  it was staffed that ''Asquith has announced in parliament that the total  of the English losses in France is 1,-  5S5/109, of whom 10,955..are officers!"  The Tagliche .Rundschau,- which is  read chiefly in army and naval circles  printed this "news" in prominent  type, and rendered it still more-conspicuous by placing over it the heading, "A Million and a Half English  Losses."  In the first place, the German public is informed that the losses were  sustained in France, "whereas"* Mr.  Asquith stated clearly that these were  the-'casualties''"in. the French and  Mediterranean Expeditionary Forces."  In the second place the Berlin newspaper adds 1,327,3*10 to the number  of the casualties iu other rarrks mentioned by Mr. Asquith. It gives correctly the number of men missing,  namely 52,5.17:;-. but it increases to a  fabulous degree the mrniber ot killed  and wounded.  This is, of'course, one.of the expedients adopted by the German authorities to keep up the spirits of the  German public, and to convince the  people that Germany is gaining brilliant victories 'on'all .sides." The public '-will' believe this statement, as it  has believed all the statements issued  by the authorities in which the repeated capture of hundreds of thou-,  sands of Russian .soldiers"and of untold numbers of guns has been announced.  It has been trained to have no  opinion of its own'in military matters,  and to accept' blindly every statement made by the. military authorities.  About a month ago, when the German armies achieved their first important successes in Galicia, the reports that circulated throughout  Germany were no extravagant that an  authoritative statement was made in  the matter. l.t transpired that the  number of Russian prisoners taken  had been multiplied in some cases by  ten, in others, and even in Berlin, by  twenty!  The authorities acknowledged that  practically the same report of prisoners taken had been received from  both the German .and the Austrian  headquarters, and that tiie two 'totals had been added together before  the report was issued to the newspapers!

Foch  is the hero of the Marne, the man who  perceived that there must be a gap  between the Prussian Guard and the  Saxon army, and who gathered  enough artillery to force the Prussians and the Saxons, now separated,  to retreat. He is als*) the man who  did much to prevent the Germans getting through to Calais, for he was iu  general control of the successful ilight  made by the French, British and Belgians, an denabled Joffre to say, on  a certain date, "It is now our time to  turn."  Foch and Joffre were born within  about three months- of one another,  the 'former on October li, 1S51, and  Joffre on January 12. 1852. In 1870  Foch served as a subaltern against the  Germans, as did Joffre, and after the  war both of them -began to win recognition as soldiers of brains.

The War Prophets  Predictions of Present War That.Have  Been Partly Fulfilled  Like most events of world-wide interest, the present war has not been  without its prophets. In a peculiar  sense it is true that "the best of  prophets of the-future is the pas!.''  The war preparations throughout  Europe called for none of the gifts  of the seer to foretell how the race of  armaments would end. Germany,  whose cauldron of "hell's broth" was  stirred by the Nietzsches and Bern-  hardis, had no need to invoke the aid  of crystal gazers and necromancers.  Since the war was declared a number  of prophecies have bean strikingly fulfilled- The most interesting of those  is that of tho French priest of Ars,  who foretold the two Prussian invasions of France. After the debacle of  1870 the second part of the priest's  prophecy was remembered and published in Paris, but no one took it seriously. His prec.iction of the second  invasion has been partly fulfilled:  "The enemy will again return and destroy* as they come. Kffeetive resistance will not be made. They will be  allowed to advance, ami after that  thsir communications will be cut, and  they will suffer great loss. They will  retreat towards their own country. They will be followed, and few  will reach their goal."  Another prophecy that has come to  light since  the  outbreak  of war  was |  contained   in   "Moore's   Almanac,"  an I  annual publication that has a cotisid-j  eriible   vogue   throughout   Ireland   be-j  cause of its table of forecasts. In his '  "Voices of the Bta.t."  for July, 1914,  the author foretold that naval affairs  would   "come  to  the  fore,"  and   that  France  would  be  the  scene  of much  unrest. His horoscope for the summer  quarter   forecasted   "serious   financial  difficulties"   and   "heavy   expenditure  in military matters."���������Toronto Globe.

Sir Richard and  his friends appeared to be intent on proving that the people of Victoria were in a state  of panic at the time of the  purchase, and that Canada  had to have the boats at any  price./  In Vancouver last Friday  night the members of the  Ministerial Union of the Lower Maiuland smashed Attorney-General Bowser's specious  attempt to cloud the political  issues in this province.

Quqe naturally  the Vernon News, in which Mr. Ellison is largely interested, ihinks that  Vernon is geographically and climatically better adapted for a military  camp than Vancouver Island is.

The Sun is the largest and best  newspaper printed in the Boundary  country, and the price is only one-  half that of its local contemporaries.  It is a valuable advertising medium  because its large subscription list  has been obtained, and is maintained, merely on its merits as a  newspaper. It uses no indirect or  questionable methods to secure sub-  sccribers.  It is reported that mail will soon  be carried on the Kettle Valley railway.  The Sun, at SI a year, is superior  to any $2 a year paper printed in the  Boundary.

When peevish, cross, listless, doesn't  sleep, cat or act naturally, or is feverish, stomach sour, breath bad; has  sore throat, diarrhoea, full of cold, give  a teaspoonful of "California Syrup of  Figs," and in a few hours all the foul,  constipated waste, undigested food  and sour bile gently moves out of its  little bowels without griping, and you  have a well, playful child again. Ask  your druggist for a 51-cent bottle of  "California Syrup of Figs," which contains full lirections for babies, children of all ages and for grown-ups.  It begins to look as if Jay Pluve  bad at last squeezed all the water  out of his clouds.  John Wanamaker says in Judicious  Advertising: "Advertising doesn't  erk; it pulls.

This form of conscription, however, .is'.held in abeyance by  an annual act of parliament, with  the result that at the present time  the United Kingdom and the United  States are the only two countries  that do not  compel military service.  In France liability for service extends from the age of twenty to  forty-eight, no exception being allowed except for physical disability,  although, at one time, a man with  sufficient means could buy himself off  or pay for a substitute. In Germany  liability for military service commences at the age of seventeen and  ends at the age of forty-live, but actual, service begins at twenty. The  terms of service in the first line or  active army is seven years, the next  thirteen years being spent iu the first  and second ranks of the Landwehr,  and finally German soldiers pass into the Landsturm, in which they remain until they reach the age of  forty-five..  Service in the Italian army or navy  is also compulsory an_ duniversal, the  total period being nineteen years, beginning at the age of twenty. The  term of service in the ranks of the  permanent army is two years for all  arms. After passing through the  ranks, the men are placed on unlimited leave, i.e., they are transferred to the reserve, in which they remain until they have completed a  total 'of eight years' service. From  tho reserve the soldier passes to the  mobile militia, the term of service in  which is four years. After completing his term in the mobile militia, he  is "transferred to the territorial militia, in which he remains seven years,  thus finishing- his military service at  the age of  thirty-nine.

Many-people are not aware that  "What the dickens!'' occurs in Shakespeare, but few still will be'prepared,  to hear that the phrase "a regular  shindy" is found in an author's note  to a poem callsd "The Popish Kingdom," published in 1570. A writer-  quotes this note, which refers to tiie  celebration of Maunday Thursday.  '���������.Midnight services are held in church,  the lights are put out and .'. regular  shindy follows, men being, beaten and  wounded."  Most  are required to salute "the flag" when  they are on regular duty, stand at  "attention" during the singing of the'  National Anthem, to acknowledge the  presence of-one of higher rank by a  salute, but it is not generally known  that there are other things which  British soldiers in certain .parts of the  world.are required to honor thus.  In India, for instance, a British  guard of honor presents arms to a  stone tiger every day. Tho tiger is  regarded by the natives as a god who  drives away all danger and calamity/  and once some soldiers,'in. a spirit* of  mischief, overthrew the image from  its resting place, and sent it rolling  into the valley below. So shocked  and scandalized were the natives that  a revolt seemed imminent, aud Lord  Combermere, our general there, quiet-  C'ite<.' the outraged natives by restoring the irar.ge to its pedestal and or-  derin**; the regiment to salute it in  full view of all. Since that time a  British troop has kept watch over  the tiger-idol day by day.  Another Indian idol which is watched over by British "Tommies" is the  god whose name is Kiak Kiak, equivalent to "Lord of Lords," which is  supposed to he asleep for.G.OOO years,  and whose awakening will be the end  of* all things. Hence the natives of  the city of Pegu, in Burma, are terribly afraid that someone will arouse  the god; so the .British government,  to avert trouble, stationed a sentry  there lo prevent this catastrophe-  Once a year a strange custom is observed in Cairo. A piece of carpet on  which, according to tradition, Mohammed once sat, and which is carried  through the streets, and the Khedive  ���������and his troops all receive it in review  order and salute it as they pass. The  relic* is guarded most carefully at ordinary times, and the officer in charge  of it .each morning must salute it  with his sword raised, whilst the  bugler blows three blasts before it.  Another object which is honored  with a salute is the secred coffin of  the Prophet, Which rests at Medina,  the sacred town, and which once in  his life, at least, every Turkish officer  must salute. He is expected to throw  himself flat before the coffin, clad in  his full regimentals, and is said.to  receive his commission in this manner straight from the Prophet himself.  In Russia, at Vladimir, there is an  image of the Virgin with clothes of  pure gold and invaluable gems and  previous stones, which must be saluted by every soldier, whenever it is  seen. Tlie honor paid to this icon is  said to fo.due. to the fact that it was  present v.itli thc troops when they  gained a wondrous victory over a  Fargo Tartar, army. The Russian authorities evidently sympathize with  this act of ceremony, for they actually  raised this icon to tho rank of major-  general in the army, so that it is  saluted by all Russian soldiers as an  officer today.  It might be mentioned here that in  addition to "God Save the King" there  are two pieces of music which all  English men, soldiers and civilians,  specially honor. One is the "De"ad  March," and the other the "Hallelujah  Chorus" from the "Messiah." It is  said that when King George IV. first  heard this magnificent song of praise  he was so impressed by it that he  rose to his feet in acknowledgment,  and since that time'the custom has  prevailed.���������Tit-Bits.  Brothers Meet at the Front After  Many- Years of Separation "  We recently published an arMde  describing -come extraordinary war  coincidences. Here are liiree more re-  markahlb cases.  Twelve years ago Signaller Geoffrey  Evans of the 10th Battalion Australians, left London for Australia when  he was only thirteen, and gradually  worked his way up until he obtained  an excellent post as manager of a  pearl fishing company in Broome,  Western Australia, which position he  threw up in order to serve his country. With tho Australian forces he  went to the Dardanelles, where he  took part in that wonderful landing  on the shell-swept beach of the Galli-  poli peninsula, and was ultimately  wounded.  His elder brother, Private Reginald  Evans, also threw up" a good position  in London on the outbreak^of war and  joined the Westminster Dragoons.,  A  few   months    after the two brothers,  unknown to each other, were in camp  side by side at Abassia, in Egypt. One  day   in    front   of Shepheard's Hotel,  Cairo,    the younger ''brother, who    in  twelve years had grown beyond recognition, slapped his elder brother    on  the shoulder and  exclaimed, "Halloa,  Reggie! How   are   you?"   The elder  brother looked .hard at the Australian  and then the brothers gripped hands.  ; Another- extraordinary coincidence  comes from Wales.   A Welshman and  his wife, anxious to adopt a child, from  among the Belgian refugees, journeyed   from   Abercynon   to   Swansea   to  make their selection. On their arrival  they found that there were two-young  children���������brother     and      sister���������who  particularly  appealed     to   them   and  who might be adopted, but that one  could not be taken without the other.  In the circumstances they decided to  take both.  As the children were being, undressed to be put to bed after reaching  home.a* looket was discovered hanging  round the little girl's neck. Inside the  locket was a photograph, which the  lady recognized as that of her own  sister, who had gone to Belgium as a  governess many years before, had  married and settled down" in that  country, and who now turned out to be  the mother of the little refugees. She  had therefore unknowingly adopted  her own motherless nephew and  niece.  Captain E. Brhce  Allnut, R.A.M.C.,  who  is  serving in  the   Persian  Gulf,  mentions another curious .coinci'deii-*s  which occurred recently. To quote his  own words: "The enemy started shelling the patch of ground I was on.    I  made for a little hole iu the ground  near    for shelter,  and  saw someone  else   there,   but   threw   myself   down  with   him,   as   there   was   just  When  the Jrail. of  shells    had  round us and for a moment we  put our heads up, we both said,  was a close shave!' and simultaneously recognized each other. He was at  Bart's  with  mc,  ar.d   we  hadn't  met  for five years until that moment, and  neither knew  that the other was  at  the front even!"���������Tit-Bits.

The war will  consume a great part of this surplus.  There is evidence, however, that Canada will deal more and more liberally  with homesteaders in tho future, and  this should bring in sturdy workers to  help make up the loss. Annually she  has allotted to settlers from five to  seven million acres of free land, but  today the premier of Saskatchewan  wauls to see immigrants not only as"  signed to free lands but equipped with  seeds, farm implements, and good advice. It will not be surprising if Canada nralces, -too, a determined essay  to keep her sons and daughters at  home, to make the most of her great  resources, and repair, as rapidly as  may be. her -share ot thc loss brought  upon civilization by the war of tlie  kaisers.

According to trie  Kingston iOnt.'������ British Whig, "Can--  ada has borrowed capital for municipal and industrial enterprises to such  au extent that the annual tax in interest alone is about $1-1.000*000. Too  much attention has been given to civic  life aud all that it implies, and not  enough   attention   to   farm   life."    Of  The Remington Arms  Plants Not For Sale  of  Manager   Says   That   No   Amount  Money Would Induce Owners to  Dispose  of- Plants  During the last few days there havo  been very persistent rumors to the  effect that Germany was seeking to  purchase American ammunition making plants, not so much on account  of any shortage of ammunition for its  own armies as with a view to putting  an end to the tremendous shipments  which are going forward to the allies.  The Remington Arms-Union Metallic  Cartridge Company and the Bethlehem Steel Company have both, beea  specifically named as objecti'/a point**  of (he German  efforts.  But it now appears that there is not  the slightest chance of Germany securing a dollar's worth of interest ia  either of these two great concerns.  Mr. Samuel P.

But whatever  Canada's immediate future may be,  the larger future is hers, and it is  bright. Ia no event can Canada prosper too richly for our satisfaction.

Certain civil and military authorities  having issued orders restricting (lis  sale of spirits in a number of military  district:-;, the legality of their acts  were questioned, whereupon the minister of tlie interior promptly introduced a bill into the chamber of deputies empowering all prefects during  the war to restrict or prohibit entirely tiie sala of spirituous liquors in  districts- wherever it was thought advisable iu (lie interests of national  defence. Adding this radical act to  the widesperad prohibition of vodka  in Russia and the growing feeling in  England that intemperance is partly  responsible for the low standard of a  largo part of its manhood, it is not fo  be controverted that much of the civilized world has begun to awaken lo  the necessity for soberness both in  tiiuci :vul in war.���������Saskatoon Star.

C  \Ufl  WORKING FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE COMMUNITY  Every Farming District Should Have Some Kind of an Organization or Club, where Farmers can get Together lo Discuss  the Many Problems which Confront Them  It is profitable to run a well-organized farm, and still more .'profitable to run it in a community which  Is following the same general lines of  farming- The farmer, must become  better acquainted with his fellow-  farmer. In order to do-this he needs  some sort of an orgazination or club  la. which he can discuss' with his  brother, farmers  the problems which  ���������confront each of them. He must not  considet his time wasted' when he  spends it in association with those  who are in the same line of work as  himself. Me -may not get wages in  dollars' and cents for the/time he puts  in at the club, tut the understanding  of the problems of his lellow-farm*r  ���������which will come to him through this  association will be indirectly very  valuable? The form of.organization is  really immaterial, but it should be  one in which the women and children have a \place; for farmers and  their wives have, always worked together more p'erhaps than men and  women.have in any other occupation.  There is no question but that ��������� the  efficiency of ������������������-*: the average country  Bcho'ol is too low. If the farmers will  get together and* look upon the school  from the standpoint of making the  sehool"what it ought to be, they will  make changes which, will lead to the  improvement of the work done * in  the school, as well as lessen the expense per pupil. ' It is not the purpose of this article to outline a definite plan for a~chaiige in our school  system, but the farmer should- get  ready to listen to plans of. this kind.  There is not a better, place  than at  ���������a. meeting of his '.club,' where there  will be free discussion and every  effort made to get at the,facts.  The farmers' club "can be used as  a means of entertainment and as "a  means of makin ; country life more  agreeable to the young people, and  thus keep those on the farm who  should  stay  there-    The  tendency  of  farmers to move from place to place  can be overcome to a large extent  by having a real live farmers' organization in the community to overcome discontent. "Far-away pastures always look green" is an old  saying in which there is a good deal  of truth. It should be the definite  purpose of every farmers' club to  make the -home pastures look green.  . Then: there is another subject in  which farmers have a/real live interest, and that is the subject of  roads. Whether they are good, bad  or indifferent, he is interested in  ���������them' because there ��������� is no citizen  who uses tne roads mora than he.  The farmer should realize that ���������-the  '"���������inkling.'of. .roads is in a transitory  state. Even with our latest road  laws,' it* can hardly be said that we  lave taken up a definite system of  road building. Future laws on road  making should be uiscussed by the  farmer in his club.  Perhaps the greatest effect of the  organization of a farmers' club is  the effect on the farmer himself, tlie  individual man. The farmer needs  the training in parliamentary law  that he" will get in a good farmers'  club- He needy to rub up against  his fellow-farrner. He needs to  learn that farming today ia not the  same as it was thirty years ago.  The farmer, has always been a. good  hand at putting on brakes, but the  time has come when he should take  the initiative and do something to  build up his community in place of  hindering some one else from doing  anything.  ���������' There is nothing equal to ^ regular  organization to help a man boost for  his community. He can and should  join his farmers" club, and then work  for the development of his community and make it the best community  in the state.���������Montreal Famih* Herald.

A . farm boy  and his father would never think of  taking hold of a trade or profession  without some years of mental and  practical  preparation.  Any fanner would laugh at us if we-  advocated the putting of boys into  the practice of law or medicine or of  a trade, without a course of special  training for the work that lies ahea;  of him. "That's brain work," they  will say. But farmin_ isn't brain  work? "'.'No, no." Go to any of our  agricultural colleges and see thc  amount of brain .work that is required  to understand so common a thing as  the soil. Note the btrtlay of chemistry and the study of soil physics that  is" required. Then remember that no  man can rightly understand the soil  and its action in growing plants without some knowledge of chemistry, and  tiie more the better.  From chemists, and men who study  the soil from that standpoint, has  come all the improved knowledge we  have as to fertilize:*:; and soil regeneration- That is brain work of .".  mighty high order.  Wouldn't it help a young farmer  greatly if he knew how to analyze his'  soil? The chemist knows, and he  'freely tells the farmer what he knows.

After the war mere may be a rush of  immigration, but that cannot be for a  years at least. We must, therefo.e,  make the best of the situation, and  try to get along with 'what we have.  A Toronto paper has been publishing  letters from a number of men who  have accepted positions on farms.  "*���������':(*>*: all, without exception, speak ;n  good terms.of their experience. The  pay is not lavish, but the food is  good and abundant, the bed clean  and lire in tiie open brings a keen  appetite for meals and a pleasant desire for sound refreshing sleep. One  man writes: "I have tramped miles  and miles after deer and dropped too  exhausted to eat or sleep. Here when  I'm hungry I have a good meal to go  to and when Tin tired there is a nice  clean bed waiting. You know how I  hated to break from the city, but  now Mary and I are both glad we  came. You should see her .with her  skirt tucked up, bustling to and from  the barns. It's the- pastoral life for.  us. Men who wander about cities,  idle and hungry, while there are opportunities like this offering, are  crazy."  Perhaps readers of this may think  the writer of the foregoing has hit  upon a soft spot. It is more than  likely, however, that he is possessed'  of that Mark Tapleyism that should  accompany all desires for work. That  hopefulness that leads to success and,  at this period cf time, begets some  fulfilment of the scriptural injunction  to bear one another's burdens. Every  man. yes 'and every woman, who goes  to worlc in this strain of spirit, and to  all it is possible, is helping to take the  handicap off somebody else's shoulders, and is contributing to the welfare alike of his own country and the  empire.

THE   GHOST  OF 1870 HAS BEEN LAID  IN FRANCE  The Whole French Nation is now Confident of Ultimate Victory  Having a Sublime Faith in General Joffre and in the Brave  Army that  Gallantly Stemmed thc German Invasion  Tiie great doubt has been lifted  from the heart of France. The accomplishment of this was the grandest  deed of French arms in all the year  of Armageddon which began a year  ago In history the feat will be  known as the victory of the Battle of  the Marne.  Not only did this victory probably  decide the fate of France geographically, but its influence iron the spirit of the country was, and still is, incalculable. For .^notwithstanding thi  "'solidarity" accomplished instantly  and spontaneously on August 1, the  iay tne general mobilization order  was posted, a great doubt weighed  like lead on the hearts of those'who  marched away singing as well as  those   who  stayed behind  and  wept.  Everybody 'remembered.'1870.' The  old Franco-Prussian war and the horrible nightmare of blunders. The  young had heard the story .time and  again. The French, in 1S70, were totally unprepared for war, were badly  equipped and badly led. Their plans  lacked cohesion. Generals fought independently one of the other. Treason  was laid at the door of one and altogether it was a terrible mess in  which the poor soldiers never had the  slightest chance notwithstanding a  courage which wrung from even the  Prussians the exclamation; "Oh, w-hat  brave fellows!" '  So,when the soldiers started for  the war, each one bore in his heart  a burden heavier than the knapsack  on his back: Would history repeat itself? Would 1914 be another 1S70?  Was' France better prepared this  time? Would she be better  Were her generals equal to the  task ahead?   If not, then   *    *  They dare not let their minds run  beyond this point. Individually the  most intelligent soldiers in the world,  they have the other curse and blessing of civilization, an imagination, so  they sang and quit thinking: they joked with one another, never admitting  even to themselves���������let alone to their  comrades���������that the doubt was- there-  Back home thc hearts of mothers,  fathers, wives, sisters.ana sweethearts  were troubled by the same unexpressed dread lest 1914' prove another  1870. And if such should prove to be  the case    *    *    * ���������.  They, too, smiled and talked cheerfully; of a new and irresistible;France.  All knew*, those who remained waiting as well as those who went to'war.  that for forty-four years Germany had  been living, eating, sleeping, drinking,  dreaming war, and that this war had  reti?  great  ��������� *  come. What about France? Who was  General J off re? Who were the otirer  generals? Newspapers .had'but recently declared that France was unprepared. Was this true? And all went  on being troubled in secret lent  1'ranee sho.iilu agr.in prove unready.  After vague news reached Paris  that General Joffre was in retreat  from Charleroi, the 1870 bugaboo  loomed bigger and bigger. Maugeuge  was invested, Lille was occupied.  Then there came silent, tense days,  without any real news. The government moved to Bordeaux, the Germans were now in Maubeuge, Com-  piegne, Soissons, Rhcims, Chalons,  Epeniay, Luneville, Verdun and  'Nancy .were seriously menaced. Paris,  it seemed, -was doomed and Uhlans  were reported to be at the gates- Tho  worst fears of soldiers and homefolks  seemed realized; it looked like, another 1870, only worse.  Still there was no panic. There was  the exodus of thousands of people  who objected to living in Paris during  a German occupation, but the city was  calm. France's "sacred union" was  firm. But the doubt, instilled into tho  mind of France by 1S70, was there,  galling and real. The people could not  know that General Joffre was later to  be called a genius. They could only  wonder if his retreat was strategy, or  incompetency. The consorship 'was  strict and they Lad few facts to base  opinion on. They did not know the battle of the Marne was being fought, nor  that Joffre had performed, by winning  a victory there, a sort of eighth wonder of the world. Yet this was true.  General Bonnal said of this battle:  "This is the first time to my knowledge that a great*army, retreating  a'n-1 fighting at thc same time, and for  eight days in succes-yon.'was able to  furnish the effort by itself to transform  instantly its long and painful retreat  into an irresistible offensive."  Vet that is what the French army  was able to do. Through his victory  a new France was born. The great  doubt aws lifted, the 1870 bugaboo  "banished. The people were given con-  i'^'trce in the army, the army in itself.  Henceforth, whatever may happen  to the Frt-'ich soldier, he will refuse  to be discouraged. Pie can advance,  retreat or doggedly, hold what he has  won, any. or all, with tenacity and  good cheer. He has faith in his officers and .aitb in himself. He knows  the war may be long, but he grins  and grits his teeth:  "We'll get 'em at last!" he says.  The  ghost  of 1S70  has  been  laid.  Successful Woman Farmer!    Dairy Test, at Brandon  A   CI  cr Missouri Woman Wins  Fame ac a Farmer  Missouri's first woman 'to become a  professional farmer has blazed the  way for hundreds of her sex. Her example has been followed by so many  other women they are now organized  under the title of the Missouri Women Farmers' club. Miss F. Penrle  Mitchell of Rochcport, president, is  the first professional woman farmer  in the state.  Born on a 320-acre farm in Boone  county, she grew i.p to love the soil  and took a keen interest in her father's work. Later the farm became  hers by inheritance and for seventeen  years she has owned and managed it.  First she made a scientific study of  soils, grains and animal husbandry-  She is frequently called the "Hog  Woman of Missouri," because of the  large number of hogs she marketed.  In addition to her farm interests,  Miss Mitchell is interested in every  form of woman's activities. She niseis secretary of the National Women  Farm Managers' association, secrecy of the Missouri Homo Makers'  conference, vice-president of the Missouri Rural Life conference, regent  of the Columbia chapter, Daughters of  1S12, and chairman of the industrial  and social conditions department <���������'.  the Missouri Federation of Women's  clubs, besides holding a number of  minor offices.
