C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAR  EXHIBITS ST F  The indications are that the sixth  annual Grand Forks Fall' Fair,  ^vhich will be held on September 2t>  and 29, will be a bigger success than  in any previous year. The prize  money in many sections bas been  greatly increased, and tbe competition will therefore be keener and the  exhibits of a superior character.  One notable instance in which prizes  worth fighting for have been hung  up is for the best individual ranch  display. These are: First prize,  675; second, S50; third, $25; fourth,  S10. In the live stock section, .the  amount of the prizes offered for  -registered cattle have been more  than doubled over last year, and  this fact should bring out ihe best  exhibit in this section ever s^en in  this pertion of the province.  The amusement part of the fair  is.not to bp neglected. The sportB  committee is working hard arrang-  ��������� ing an excellent program of horse  races, athletic sports, etc., and these  features of the exhibition will be  fully equal if not superior to those  witnessed here in former years. The  fair will end with a big dance on tbe  evening of the 29th.  The city authorities and the board  of school trustees will be asked to  proclaim two half holidays during  the fair.  The judges of the exhibits will be:  Live stock, S H. Hopkins; poultry,  W. Miller Higgs; fruit and vegetables, P. E. French. Ladies from  the outside will be asked to award  tbe prizes in the home cooking and  iancy work departments:'   ,,:  Entries will positively close on  September 25.  ing������ machine.

The party expects lo be able to return to Vancouver on the morning  of the 27th inst. 1 he excursion  will entail a stop over at each of the  following cities- Merritt, Penticton,  Kelowna, Vernon, Grand Forks  (from which city Greenwood and  Phoenix can be visited)t Rossland,  Nelson and Revelstoke. Unless  twenty-five members join the excursion it will not take place.  QF R  CROSS SOCIETY  Th-i lidy numbers of the local  branch of the Red Cross society are  as busy as they can be. As a result of their labor during August  six cases are now ready fur ship-  uipnt. The total output of the society for the month is as follows:  ���������Six hundred and sixty danages, SO  hospital nightshirts, 49 T bandages,  LSD triangular bandages, 50 abdominal liHnihgp-i,������34 suits of pyjamas,  ���������'i blue llnnnel suits, (5 dressing  gowns, 11 grey flannel day shirts,  DO slings, GO sheets, 22(i pillow  slips, SO pillow tickings, 139 Turkish towels, 75 tea towels. 85 face  cloths, 50 cup covers, 10 plate covers, G8 personal property bags, 7  hot water bottle covers, 4 laundry  bags, 8 pairs knitted socks. 14 pair*  hospital socks, 48 pairs hospital  socks for wounded feet, 97 tield  handkerchiefs, SI hospital handkerchiefs, 80 tray cloths, 210 surgical  kits, 870 surgical pads, 250 compresses, Ii00 gauze sponges, 900  mouth wipes Donated by the  Daughters of tlie Empire: Seventeen tea cloths, 19 utility bags, 10  table napkins, 80 cup covers, 40 face  cloths, , !)S face rags, 300 mouth  wipes. The Red Cross society would  he glad to obtain the loan of a sew-  A report is current that C company of the 54th battalion will not  go as a draft but will be held back  until the Kootenay regiment leaves  as a unit. After a base company  has been formed this will mean that  the battalion will be about 150 men  over strength.  KETTLE VALLEY  LINE PROGRESS  J. J. Warren, president of the  Kettle Valley line, while in Victoria  a couple of days ago. stated that  work is being prosecuted vigoiously  on the extension of the line to Hope  and that the most gratifying results  are attending the operation of the  system already completed.  Steel <is now laid'to within one  mile of Ladner creek, where a big  steel bridge is being put in. For a  distance of ten miles from Hope station houses are being built and  telegraph poles have been erected  and wires strung. Progress is also  being made on the erection of snow-  sheds in the vicinity of the sum  mit.  ���������Mr. Warren said that on -Monday  last the mixed train which has been  in service between Merritt and Penticton was replaced by a tegular  passenger service, this illustrating  the growth of traffic on that section.  The tri-weekly train will hereafter  be a passenger train solely, leaving  Merritt for the south on Mondays  Wednesdays and Fridays, and from  Penticton leaving for the north on  Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  There is such a great amount of  freight offering that a freght service  has been Inaugurated, leaving Merritt  on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and  Penticton on Mondays and Fridays.  There is a large-sized gentleman  in the city who claims he can whip  two ordinary men at one and the  same time. The Sun has been endeavoring for-a week past to corral  him for a lighting editor.  The thrill of a fair's night show is not in the title; its in its aim.  i^ . ......... on -Monday, bent. 13, at the Spokane Interstate Fair and Live  Stock Show there will be staged at night the grandest effort of human conception in an ideal presentation of the world's most famous final battle���������  the decisive military argument, the permanent peace maker.  SVilled mechanics, artisans, military experts, armament makers, aeronauts rapid fire gun commanders, armored-motor car drivers and drilled  soldiers have been occupied for several weeks in preparing a great living  war drama on the turfed arena before the grandstand at the fair grounds  It will truly portray the thrilling scenes of a decisive battle between the  most modern armed forces. People of the Inland Empire will never have  a better opportunity to become informed regarding the fighting machines  of modern European armies than they will have every night during the fair  when "The battle of Armageddon" will be staged in the open.  In thrilling effects nothing was attempted in Spokane that compares  with it. Three hundred people are required in the cast. There are 120  minutes of thrill after thrill, sixty thrills a minute���������some thrills.  The drama depicts a battle in the western arena of the great, European  war. An aeroplane scouts the horizon and sails over the field, heralding the  coming of the enemy. Then follows more aeroplanes, huge Zeppelins, noisy  dirigibles, saucy taubes and flirting biplanes like a swarm of bees, all opening fire upon the defenders with bombs, while skirting the field at high  speed rush armored motor cars with their loads ot soldiers firing at the air  battery with rapid fire guns. Soon the enemy rushes to the attack, skirting  the horizon, dashing through the forests and across the plains, with their  entanglements of barbed wires, brush, fallen horses, disabled motor cars  and abandoned ammunition trains. Great cannon roar, the big seige guns  go into action from afar, shells burst high in air and all around the fighting  troops, and the earth fairly shakes as the battle reaches its height. More  armored cars dash into play, bringing fresh supplies of men and ammunition,  the heavens glow with the bright fire and the Red Cross ambulances rush  upon the scene amid the bursting of shells. The fight in the trenches is  on, a hand to hand fight is on, and soon the fight is over and the victors  rejoice in songs and pyrotechnic celebration. Pluge set pieces form a picturesque "nish to the great spectacular pageant and* drama, one of the  largest being a dove of peace holding a laurel wreath.  Everybody will want to see "The Battle of Armageddon." It is grand.  "Go to it."  H. M  Lunney,   late   manager   of  the B. C.

While climbing a rotten pole, the pole suddenly  fell to the ground,   Mr   Lunney   be-  | ing pinned under it.    He is reported  ! to have hail one leg broken  and   the  j other badly bruised.  v   You are invited to tbe Methodist  church services on Sunday next at  11 a;m. and 7:80 p.m. Preacher,  Rev. J. D.

A GOOD CHEW IN A CLEAN WEAPPEE.  43  ggs  Making the Most of the Eggs Laid at  This Season  As the price of eggs drops during  the warm weather and it becomes a  question whether much profit may be  derived from their sale in the regular  way, the wise poultry grower will consider how he may keep -up the 'prici  for what he sells or reserve his stock  as it accumulates in such a way that  lie will obtain a much larger pri^c  and considerably more than sufficient  to pay him for the trouble to which he  has..to go to bring about this result.  In the first place, any eggs required  for sale as food products and not^ for  breeding- purposes should be infertile-  Fertile eggs become unfit for human  food almost as quickly as. milk when  subjeeted'to. the same temperature and  when we consider how carefully our  health departments safeguard the sale  of this product it is some wonder that  some method is not'devised to absolutely prevent the marketing during  the hot months of eggs less likely to  spoil than is'now in practice. It is a  mistaken idea that eggs have to be  put into an incubator or under a hen  to start to incubate. The fact is that  the germ begins to grow just as soon  as it is subjected to a temperature of  00 or above. Whether this be behind  the kitchen stove, on a hot country  road ea" route to market, on the platform at the depot awaiting shipment,  in the country store waiting for the  usual twenty or thirty cases before  sending out, in the pantry waiting until tlie case is filled, or when you have  a chance to go to town, or in the henhouse under broody hens, when they  are not gathered frequently.  Why produce such a perishable article at all when the remedy is so simple just by "Swatting the Rooster,"  or removing him from the pens from  which the eggs to sell come. An infertile egg will keep so much better  than a fertile one that there is hardly  any comparison between them. Infertile eggs could be placed in an incubator for 21 days, the hatching time,  and used for cooking purposes andjt is  doubtful if they would be found in the  least objectionable, but what of the  fertile egg that has not matured a  chick. The stench from it is terrible.  This is the relative condition of fertile  and infertile eggs, when subjected to  heating under any circumstances and  gives some idea of the value of taking  precautions^ 6 have-only in fertile eggs  produced at this time of the year.  By guaranteeing that an eggs are'  infertile, that they can be depended  upon to keep as long as possible, and  supplying them in attractive contf.in-  ers, it is possible to obtain always  several cents better than the market  price for them. If the price drops too  low it will pay anyone who will do so  to use one of the many ways that can  be used for preserving the eggs until  later in the year when eggs are scarce  and good prices prevail for well-kept  eggs.  Eggs to be stored should in the first  place, therefore, be from hens having  no males with them because an infertile egg keeps longer, even without the  use of the preservative than a fertile  egg; second, perfectly fresh, for not  only will they keep better, but if an  egg that has begun to decay is placed  in the same vessel with fresh ones, it  is likely to affect all the surrounding  eggs; and. third, perfectly clean, for  filth of any kind adhering to the shell  will taint the preserving medium and  thus taint the eggs. In placing eggs  in the preservative be careful to see  that none of the eggs gets cracked-  Keep them in a moderatly cool room  where the temperature may be kept  fairly constant. A dry, clean cellar is  a suitable place.  There are several very good ways  of preserving eggs and one of them  can be selected that will suit the ability of the user to obtain the ingredients in his own locality. Of the many  methods for use on a small scale none  has proved more successful than  water-glass (sodium silicate). This is  a very cheap product and can usually  be secured at not to exceed 50 cents  a gallon, and one gallon will make  enough solution to preserve 50 dozen  eggs, so that the cost of material  would not exceed one cent a dozen.  Pure water that has been boiled and  then cooled should be used. To each  15 or 20 quarts of water one quart or.  water-glass should he add 3d. The solution should bo prepared, placed in the  jar or oilier suitable vessel, and the  fresh eggs added from time to time  until the jar is filled, but he sure that  there are two inches of solution always covering the eggs. The eggs  should not. be washed before packing,  for washing injures the keeping quality, probably by dissolving the mucilaginous coat ins.  A good limewater preservative may  be made as follows: Thirty gallons of  water, 10 pounds of salt, one-half bushel of finely slacked lime. Alter mixing  thoroughly allow thc solution to stand  two or three days and then remove  the clear liquid by dipping or by  means of a siphon. Place the liquid in  a tub or other suitable reeeplable and  place the egge, therein, or the eggs  may be placed in the vessel lirst and  the limewater placed over them. Have  at least two inches of liquid covering  the iop of the eggs. Limed eggs can  be discerned by the roughness of the  shell. P,efore boiling, eggs that have  been preserved in the foregoing ways  should   bo   punctured   with   a   needle,  W. N. U. 1063  otherwise they are apt to crack as  soon as placed in hot water, owing to  the pores being closed and no outlet  illowed for the air in the eggs.  Eggs can be preserved for several  aioiiiiis in dry salt. Bran can, also be  used with fair results but neither of  these methods is as satisfactory as the  two firse mentioned. There must always be at least two inches covering  the eggs with these two methods  also.   . " ,     ���������������������������~.'<*im*������g2i\  Cold storage is undoubtedly the-best  and most practical method for preserving egg'sjn large quantities in a commercial "way. As the processes by  which a low temperature can be maintained for an indefinite period have  become more and more improved, the  greater has been the number of eggs  so stored, until the cold storage business, has reached such proportions  that it has a considerable influence on  the price of eggs, tending to -lower it  in winter and raise it in summer.     .   .  A record of \ twenty crates of eggs  stored in Buffalo last season will give  some idea of the profit in this method.  Citese eggs were shipped in when they  were selling in quantities at 17 cents  per dozen for table use. This would  make the total ������102. These same eggs  were sold in December at an average  of thirty cents a dozen, which made a  total of $180 or a difference of $78 in  favor of cold storage.  The cold storage plant charged two  cents a dozen for the period, which  made a total of $12 for storage. To  this is to be added $6.20 expressage,  and the -commission man's charge of  $12. making a total of expenditures  $30-20, and leaving $47 clear and above  what the cost of storage and other  expenses ariiountecl to. There is no  question that storage in this way properly handled, is very profitable���������A. P.  Marshall, Niagara Falls, Canada,  Breeder Niagradot White Wyahdottes.  With the Big Fleet  A Wise Banker  North    Dakota    Banker   Who    Helped  Boys to Learn Something of Pure  Bred  Stock  In Ward county, North Dakota, is a  banker who has shown true philanthropy and wisdom. He bought a carload of pure bred gilts and distributed  them among the boys in the county  who promised to care for them according to the advice of County Agent  W. A. Peck. In the fall the boys  could buy the sows at their actual  cost, or they -were to give the sows  back to the banker, but they could  keep the increase. Some of the boys  bought their sows and those who did  did not had the pigs as their own.  The banker bred such sows as were  returned to him and r.gain put them  out with boys in the county.  In this way the boys learned how to  handle pure bred stock, and were  shown the superiority of blood and  proper care. They came in personal  touch with the county agent who was  able to teach them much more.than  pig feeding. They got a substantial  r&ward for their work, and a start that  will mean much in the future.  The banker did a most excellent  thing for the boys .and for the county. The boys are the future farmers  ������������������and will have -money to deposit in  his bank, we hope. Is there not a  suggestion in this for many a banker  or successful business man who takes  pride in his county? And may not a  wise father get a hint that will keep  his boys on the farm?���������Successful  Farming.  Berlin Shows Big Population Decrease  The Berliner Tagebaltt prints some  interesting, figures nhewing a marked  decrease* in the population of Berlin.  ������������������! April 1, this year, the population  of Berlin proper was 1,908,719, against  ; Otii.THM at. the beginning or the same  month in 1914. During the month of  April, this* year, there was a further  decrease of 14,574 persons- Of these  .13,131 were males and 1,443 females-  Of course, says the Tageblatt, this decrease can really be attributed to thc  fact that so many of Berlin'^ citizens  arc at the front.  rnl.ere also has jee:i considerable  decrease in traffic. Figures just prepared show that in April, this year,  the street railways carried 47,042,723  passengers, which Ir; five millions and  a half less than in April, 1914. The  elevated and underground roads carried G.2."i4,7ti0 passengers, being a de-  create of 1,000,000 compared with thc  same period in the previous year. Tax-  icabs and other vehicles carried 1,-  G03.5S6 persons, being a decrease of  nearly live millions  An illustration of thrift is contained  in the story of a Scotswoman who had  been promised a present of a now bonnet by a lady.    Before she made tho  iMiuisn, the lady called and asked  the good woman: 'Would you rathe"  have a felt or a straw bonnet, Mi\j-  MacDuff?"  "Wcel," said Mrs. MacDuff. "I think  I'll tak' a strao ana, It'll maybe be a  mouthful to the coo when I'm done  wi' it."  Both   Kinds  "He's  so  dogmatic."  "Yes,    and has such a categorical  wav with him."  When the Fleet Comes in For Fuel  There is Some Excitement  Five p.m-, and the officers of one  of his majesty's oiltankers are yarning and thanking their lucky stars  that things are likely to be .quite for  thc night. Anchor watch will then  only mean having an occasional look  round. Suddenly > a , "scream" is  heard, and the chief tears on deck.  That "scream" is well known and.  means something doing, for it comes  from the Port Coaling Officer's tug,  which, for a small ship, can-make the  deuce of a row. When she gets close  aboard her skipper pokes his head out  of the wheelhoxise and yells: '  "Stand by for any. emergency tonight and to oil the main destroyer  flotilla." .  >   "Right!     What's   all   the shindy?"  "Don't know, but I believe the big  fleet is coming in, and.they're in the  devil of a hurry. I'm hustling around  to the colliers as well. They are to  be ready for coaling at a minute's  notice," ' and pit he goes, making  enough noise with his' siren to wake  the dead. Incidentally he wakes up  the colliers.     ��������� ���������'���������:"-'���������"���������  ��������� The bay is full of oiltankers and  colliers .of.'every,.description and size,  ranging from a big ten .thousand  tonner to a little motor schooner.  Re s 11 essness becomes apparent  throughout this fleet. The /white feathers of exhaust steam show here and  there, and a few ships heave up their  second anchor to be in readiness to  get under way. The Port Coaling Officer has done his job.  Half an hour later the whole bay is  alive with destroyers tearing round  and'blowing their sirens'as signals to  various ships : that they are coming  alongside to oil. Two of them are  soon made fast and a hoarse voice on  each of the destroyers bellows out,  "Starboard watch awa}r for exercise,  'ands in 'oses (hands in hoses)." A  few moments later the pumps are  started and the oil is pouring into the  destroyers' tanks!  Away down the bay the main  battle fleet is coming in to its anchorage. Allthe colliers frantically heave  up anchors and steam off to coal th^ir  appointed ships. Whistles, sirens and  exhausts raise a deafening racket.  On board our oiltanker we now get  'uii=. to have a yarn with the men just  in from the grey North Sea..'I "Anything doing?" That is always the  first question. "Not a thing," almost,  invariably comes the reply. Then,  perhaps, we ask if they were in the  "Lion dust up." "No, we were sent  in just before with a damaged turbine,  and our old man's language blistered  all the wardroom paint." Then we  get their own' special little adventures,  perhaps with a 'submarine; how they  only missed ramming it by a few  yards, and how one of the gunners  had a fit when a lurch sent his shot  just wide of the mark. After that  we rake up papers and magazines, and  have a look round at the whole scene.  The sight of all the fighting ships or  different types starts one's blood  flowing swiftly.' No landsman' can  quite understand the impression that  such a fleet creates in the mind of the  sr.ilormarr.. "That's our life's blood,"  says someone on deck, "and we're a  dead race when that goes."  Oh, for a chance to be a fighting  unit instead of an oiltanker!���������London  Chronicle.  To Disperse Fo!son Gas  Invention     Will    Force    the    Deadly  Chlorine Over the Heads of Men  at Front  Sir I-iiram Maxim has completed an  invention which is a reply to. the German pcison gas methods of warfare.  Exhaustive tests havo been made iu  trenches tinder conditions as nearly  as possible to those in Flanders, and  it is understood tha' the war office is  very favorably impiessed with the invention.  Sir Hiram Maxim says that the poisonous fumes are chlorine gas. "Chlorine gas," he says, "when in pure state  at one atmospheric pressure weighs  two and- one-^ialf times as much as  air. In escaping from high pressure  to atmospheric pressure the chlorine  necessarily rises, mixed witha lot of  air, and by the V.me it is twenty feet  away from the discharge pipe the  ratio is five volumes of air to one rt  chlorine. <���������";.  "The specific gravity is correspondingly reduced, and by' the lime the  fumes reach our trenches there Is one  hundred times as much air as gas-  We- know that to be approximately  true, because if a soldier breathed a  chlorine mixture of one in twenty he  would not live more than a few minutes. Scientific men have tried to  neutralize the effects- of the gas by  respirators, but you might just as  well think of filtering alcohol' out of  water wit'., a piece of wire gauze a"  try to separate chlorine from the i-t-  mosphere by such a device."  ;  _^  Sir I-Iiram called "these gauze  thing's" "aspLrators"���������short for "exas-  perators.." That sums up his estimate  of their utility.  It is not permissible lo give away  Sir Hiram's secret, but it is said that  the invention will force the poisonous  fumes over the heads of men in the  trenches.  "I do not think that the British," he  said, "should descend to the use of i  poisonous gases, and I am convinced  that the enemy will not continue their  use once he finds how easily and how  cheaply the fumes may be dispersed.  "Another device I ani engaged upon  relates to the defence of our trenches  against the bayonet. It is upon a wholly new principle, but I am not at liberty to describe it. In fact," Sir Hi/-  am continued, "I have my pocket full  of new inventions. At _ the age of  seventy-five niy day ".'is'7 oneT of seventeen hours and I want to give that  time to serving the country."  Some Dont's For  Drivers of Horses  A War Bog Story  If Holland Entered  Germany is undoubtedly very vulnerable on her Holland frontier. Were  Holland to be goaded into belligerency  by German attacks on her merchant  ships or by other infringements upon  her rights, it would be unfortunate for  the enemy. Not only would German  territory thereby be at once thrown  open to invasion by Dutch, British and  French troops, but-also the Scandinavian countries would be almost certain  to follow in the wake of Holland's action- Denmark, Norway' and Swede-,  would not find it to their advantage to  remain neutral when all their nei0'.i-  bors were at war. They would join in  thc wolf hunt. Their striking force  would be no small one, but much more  telling upon the enemy would be the  ending of their commercial relations  with him.���������Toronto Mail and Empire.

Dog That Followed Fortunes of a Soldier   and   Rescued   His   Master  ��������� When Wounded  One of the best dog stories of the  .war, and with the additional merit of  being absolutely true, is told us by  Mrs. Armar Corry, who personally met  the hero ther,.:>f at the American hospital at Netiilly. This dog, named  Fend l'Air, belonged to an Algerir.n  ���������soldier called to the colors. He managed to get on_ board his master's  ship and landed at Marseilles with  him; crossed France to Belgium, ec-  companied him in the great retreat  and also in the victory of the Marne,  and shared with his soldier, owner  the life in the trenches. One night the  trench was blown .up by a shell, and  thc man was buried, wounded, in .i  mass of earth. Fend l'Air scented out  the exact place where his master lay,  started digging, and at last got his  head clear, and then barked continually until he summoned some stretcher-  bearers. These dug the wounded man  out of the earth, and he was take'i  eventually to Netiilly, where the  American hospital relaxed the rules,  so as to admit the dog as well as his  master. And the man is now recovering and owes his life directly to the  faithfulness of Fend l'Air.���������Field and  Fancy.  _  ^  Mrs. Rooney, on going over to Mrs.  Finnerty, found that lady had hung  some new lace curtains on the windows, and the floor was all scrubbed,  and everything cleaned up, so she  said:  "Mrs. Finnerty, 'tis not spring.

Here arc some of the  hints which might well be pasted in  the hat of every driver:  Don't overload the wagon.  Don't speed your horse.  Use well fitting, light weight harness, loose fitting collars and open  bridles.  On long hauls allows periods of rest  in tlie-shja.de. '  At the lirst sign of exhaustion stop  and bathe the animals head and heck  with cold water. (Here directions are/  given for treating sunstroke).  Allow a liberal quantity of clean  water to drink, provided the horse is  worked or exercised immediately after  drinking.  Carry a pail and sponge to frequently wash or swab the animal's nose,  mouth and face.  . Give a warm bran mash on Wednesday nights in addition to the one given  on Saturday nights-  ':-Avoid'all "grades whenever possible.  Relieve harness pressure from-  sores.  . Remove collar and shoulder pads  from harness every night, wash pressure surface with warm, water, ann.  soap and hang out in the sun to dry-  before putting- them on tho animal.  Supply two sets of pads for use on alternate days. If this is done sore conditions will be entirely prevented.  Feed properly, study the individual  horse and determine' just how much .  nourishment is required to keep it in  serviceable condition and health.  Don't underfeed or save on bedding,  blankets, shoeing, or employ incompetent help in order to save money.  Don't, practice a false economy,  which invariably results in weak,  lame, sore or enfeebled animals.  Plenty of light, fresh air, good food,  pure water and proper housing are as  necessary to the horse as they are to  Ihe human being.

Forest  Reserves  in Canada to Protect Rivers  In the annual report of thc commission of conservation for the past year  it is shown that very' earnest effort  are being made to protect many-of the  important   rivers   in   the   country   by  setting aside large areas about their  water heads us'permanent forest reserves.   The action of the government  in  this connection is  worthy of com-  mendiition.   It'is a matter of common  knowledge that the equalization of the  flow of rivers is largely dependent on  thickly wooded lanes.   Apart from the  menace to rivers from devastated forest lands, is the fact that the land itself���������especially if in mountainous regions���������is  often  reduced  to  perpetual  barrenness   by  the  washing  away  of  soil  owing  to  the  removal  of forest  cover.    Whole  districts on  the western slopes of the Alps have been ruined in this way, and hundred of farms'  have entirely disappeared. Widespread  devastation from this cause was also;  seen in China, where the wood cutters  in search of fuel for the dense population;    completely stripped  the ".'forest  cover from  the  hill  slopes  over  immense areas which now are' deserts-  This destructive process is going forward very rapidly in the southern ap-  palachiau region of the United States.  The loss is estimated at some tan millions a year.

Many people, after living on poorly  selected or badly cooked food for a  long time, and when their ailments become chronic, expect the doctor, with  some magic potency, to instantly rebuild them.  This is not possible. The only true  method Is to turn as quickly as can be,  from poor food to good.

"About a year ago when my appetite  failed completely and I began to have  sinking spells similiar to fainting, I  took all manner of tonics and stimulants, but they were of no effect. I had  been brought to quit drinking coffee  and taking Postum in its place and  gradually began to get a little better.  "Someone suggested that if I found  Postum so beneficial f had better use  Grape-Nuts food, as they were both the  children of one brain.

"Shortly after commencing this diet,  the wretched pain in my side was  greatly relieved, and now, a year later,  it has gone entirely, also the sinking  spells; in fact, my pale cheeks have  changed to pink, I have gained back  more than the twenty pounds I lost,  and am thoroughly we'll in every way."

Demonstration Conducted in North  , Dakota of Interest to Farmers  The agricultural extension department of North Dakota furnishes the  following , description of feeding  steers with roughage: '  The object of this trial was to  show what results could be obtained  in utilizing the rough feed grown  on the farms in carrying out a systematic rotation of crops, including  corn and alfalfa. Thc manure produced to be returned to tho farm.  The cattle were bought at South  St. Paul, Nov. 5. 1914..-They were not  of extra grade, costing $5.So per  cwt., and averaging 775 pounds, or  ?4'j-.jjS per head. The cost of buying  and shipping out was a few cents  more than ?2 per head, and the cost  of shipping back and selling a little  less than $?������, making the total ex-,  pense out and back under ?5. They  were shipped back to South St. Paul  and sold May 31, 1915.  : Twenty-six . head of the best finished of. the two cars, averaging 1,054  pounds, sold for $8-35, wjjich was the  highest price paid that day, and 22  head, averaging 1,067 pounds, brought  $7.65. This made an average of 8c  per pound and an average weight of  approximately 1,060 pounds,' or $85  per head.  One car of these cattle was fed on  the farm at Aberdeen, South Dakota,  and the other at Grand Forks, North-  Dakota. They were fed piratically  the same feeds, but the Aberdeen  load was fed grain a little longer and  showed .more finish. They were a  little lighter than .the Grand Forks  cattle, but more of them sold for the  lop price.  From November until ..January  these cattle were fed corn fodder and  some alfalfa and other hay. The  alfalfa was not very good as it was  thc first year's crop and had a good  many weeds in it. From January on  they were fed silage and some grain.  We began by feeding ear corn then  ground the corn, eob and all. Later,  we shelled the corn before grinding,  and added barley or speltz, about  half inrt half, but did not feed heavy  of grain. At no time did we feed all  the grain they would eat���������twelve to  thirteen pounds per head per day  being the most we fed. They were  fed all the silage they would eat,  which was about 20 pounds per head  per day.  Our records show that the 25 head  at  Ahfc-d^eii,   i".  aiTtrful  hay-and  were fed 215 bushels of corn which  was ground, cob and all, 50 bushels of  ground speltz and one ton of oil  meal.. This was all ground and  r-iixeu. Eighteen.: h,Oud "of hogs following the cattl'r sold for $253.  The Grand Forks cattle were fed  grain in addition to silage and hay  for 74 days, during which time each  ate approximately: corn, 12 bushels;  barley, 9 bushels; hay. 700 pounds:  silage, 1,000 pounds. Allowing market price for these feeds would be  about $20 per head (silage figured at  $4 per ton). In addition hogs followed these cattle, and there were  nearly 100 pounds of pork produced  for each steer fed. Further there  is in the lots manure to cover 20  acres or more of the farm.  As to the cost of labor, it was  necessary to have help on the farm,  and the cattle were attended to with  practically no additional cost.  While no attempt was made to  conduct this work in a scientific way,  nor to present the results as proving  any important facts, it is believed  that the demonstration indicates that  it is possible to grow corn and alfalfa, build straw shades and silos,  and not necessarily lose time and  money in building up our soils.  It may be added that every pound  of feed fed was grown on the farm,  that the cattle were not fed one feed  in a shed, and had only a straw shed  for protection. The alfalfa hay was  not first class, as it was largely  from first year's seeding. The silage  was kept in a pit silo, and the silo  was refilled in March with dry fodder, and water added. This silage  is practically as good as silage put  in last fall while green.

No Amount of Money Which Anybod>  Might Offer Would Induce the *  Owners tj Sell  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  been specifically named as objective  points of the German efforts.  But it now appears that there is not  the slightest chance of Germany securing a dollar's worth of interest in either of these two great concerns.  Mr. Samuel F. Pryor, vice-president  and general manager of the Remington Arms-Union ' Metallic Cartridge  Co., was seen today in regard to the  persistent rumors that have lately  been in circulation, to the effect that  offers made by a foreign government  for purchase of the properties of that  company were under considerations,  and that the additions to the Ilion and  Bridgeport plants, which are under  construction, are intended to be merely temporary and made only for the  performance of special contracts entered into and are not intended for the  permanent uses of the company.  ��������� "Mr. Pryor was very emphatic in asserting that there was not the-slightest'.-foundation for these rumors; and  he pointed out that one story.necessarily- destroyed the other, because, if.  a sale of the plants and properties  was made, the additions wouhl not  4je required for the purpose of enabling the company to perform its contracts for the supply of arms and ammunition.  Mr. Pryor stated that no sum which  might be offered for the properties  would afford the slightest temptation  to the owner to dispose of them and  thus prevent the performance of existing contracts. Mr. Pryor was equally  emphatic in asserting that the additions to the plants did not constitute  a mere temporary expedient, but were  largely made in accordance with tho  general policy of expansion adopted  by the company before the outbreak  of thc European war, and that this policy would not be interfered with even  if the war were to come to an end  tomorrow. The additions to the  plants now under construction, are  of the most modern type and of the  most substantial, durable and permanent character.���������Commercial and Financial World, New York, June 21.  The Oil of Power.-:���������It is not claimed  for Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil that it  will cure every ill, but its uses are so  various that it may be looked upon as  a general pain killer. It has achieved  that greatness for itself and all attempts to surpass it have failed. Its  excellence is known to all who have  tested its virtues and learnt by experience.  The following story was told at a  recent dinner of the Pilgrim Publicity  association:  "A farmer had twenty employees on  his farm, and as none of them was as  energetic as the farmer thought he  should be, he hit upon a plan which lie  believed would cure them of their lazy  habits-  " 'Men,' he said one morning, 'I have  a nice, easy job for the laziest man on  the farm. Will the laziest man stop  forward?" Instantly nineteen of the  men stepped forward.  " 'Why don't you step to the front  with Ihe rest?' inquired the farmer of  the remaining one.  "'Too much trouble,' came the reply."  Why Not?  Why cannot a unit of the red-coated "motilities." go forward with the  next contingent? A few hundred ot  them for a nucleus and a thousand or  two more fearless westerners would  rally to the standaru, proud of the  privilege of going to the front as a  Mounted Police battalion.

Canada's Shell Production  American   Paper  Says   Canada   Holds  the   Record   Ror   Rapid .Work  The American Machinist, an American technical''journal, explains with  admiration, in its current number, the  work of the Canadian shell committee.  Two hundred Canadian shops are producing munitions of war. They aro  thoroughly organized into a great manufacturing unit, in which each plant  produces its specialty, and depends  on other apparatus elsewhere, in the  "way that one department depends on  another' in a large factory. The shell  committee, comprising expert managing engineers and military men, assembled the means and now run the  production of munitions.  "The thing has been done so quietly," says the American Machinist,  "that but few have the least idea of  its magnitude. We have looked upon  the United States as being the home-  of the excessively large industrial undertaking, and the place where great  schemes are carried out so rapidly  that the process resembles sleight of  hand. But when it comes to a general  average number of plants, number of  employees, geographical location, and  shortness of time available for organization, we must take off our hats- to  our Canadian neighbors and admit  ,they hold the record."  A prominent citizen of Winnipeg  who recently visited Ottawa, says that  he was informed by some manufacturers that the shell committee, organized by General Hughes in September  last, of which committee General  Bertram is chairman, that Canada is  turning out more shells than all manufacturing establishments in Great Britain, exclusive of the regular shell-  making firms���������all of which goes to  show Canada's resources and adaptability. If our manufacturers will  only bend their energies to increasing  their output, not only in munitions ot  war, but in other lines, and put all  their efforts into the upbuilding of  this country there will be no doubt  about Canada's future.���������Winnipeg  Telegram. ^  Good  Results   of   Road   Motor  Along  Lines  of  C.P R.

Noxious weed seeds are very freemen tly carried in cars from one  point to another and dropped about  stations and in front of elevators,  and "from these points of vantage  thev spread to the surrounding districts. , .  The railway company further assured the government that every section foreman and his gang would be  at the disposal of the weed inspector,  not only for the destruction of thc  weeds found on each trip, but also  under his direction would keep a  sharper lookout for a recurrence of  these weeds anywhere along the  .company's lines of rail.  The work has been going forward  for some time, with splendid results,  and the department of agriculture and  particularly Chief Weed Commissioner Thompson, are very enthusiastic  about this'methocl of getting after the  weeds. Quite a number of small  patches of sow thistle, for example,  have been found at stations when  none can be located in any of the  fields near the station, and by destruction of small patches, there will be no  danger of the contagion spreadiug to  the surrounding farms.       ��������� .    .  The fact that the section foreman  and his men will be poste~d on what  are noxious weeds will be a great assistance to the farmers along their  particular stretch of road, as they  will often be able to help the man  out who is not sure as to the character of plants that he may find in  his crop. ���������   '���������  US  Instant  Relief  Paint on Putnam's  Extractor tonight, and  corns feel better in the  morning.

"The Eldest Child of Liberty  What is more natural than that the  destroyers of Lou vain should menace  the historic treasures of the aga-old  homes of romance and freedom at the  head of the Adriatic. But those to  whom such things appeal cannot fail  to note with something akin to pleasure that after long years "Venice, the  eldest child of liberty." is once more  in battle array for liberation, is one  of the points from which the greatest  of all struggles for the freedom of the  spirit of man is being waged. Venice  popularly dates its foundation from  the inrush of thc Huns. And in succeeding years the Venetians were in  the vanguard of all the great battles  against oppression- The Goths in Italy  and the Dalmatian pirates knew thc  prowess of their swords; the Crusaders sailed from their harbors; Constantinople and the Greek empire with  it, crumbled, largely before their arms,  and the years of combat with Genoa  left them masters of the Adriatic.���������  Ottawa Journal.

To whose advantage is the "Made  in Canada" movement? It seems to  me that there must be a weakness  somewhere, on the manufacturers'  side when they make such an appeal.  The Canadian people arc loyalty itself  and don't need such advice or prodding up from the manufacturers. If the  goods are what they are represented  the pepole will buy them. Let the  manufactu ens show as much loyalty  and come out bravely and say: Here  we have been basking in the sunshine  of tariff protection long enough, hard  times are here and we are willing to  forego some of our big profits and let  the other man have a chance. But we  don't see them showing their loyalty  thus. To me the 'Made in Canada'  smacks too much of the 'Made in Ger-  mai.y' idea, and everybody knows  what rotten stuff has been dumped on  the world's markets by the Germans,  for many years. Why not 'Canadian  made' and put goods up to a standard  that will make the trade mark respected thc world ever.  "Jt is really the people who pay the  tariff extras, for the manufacturers  have all put up the price of their  goods lo cover it.

Large quantities were also imported from the  Netherlands which may not be available- Mr. Ruddiclc prognosticated an  increased demand for dried and evaporated fruit from Great Britain for use  in the army.

Young'Men Should Not Fail'to Recognize the Seriousness of the War  In asking  why  Canada  should  not  have at least a  quarter- of a million  men    in training for the emergencies  of the  future, Rev. Dr. 1-lerridge declared that "many of our youth have  r -t yet seriously considered whether  they cannot do something directly or  indirectly to strengthen our resources  in this  epoch-making hour" and that  there were some "by whom, whether  through; dullness or indifference, the  call of patriotism has-been so far disregarded and private interest held of  greater, moment'.than the public weal."  It is impossible not fo be impressed  with    tha   apparent   truthfulness   of  these assertions.   There seem, indeed,  to be many young men in this country .who view the struggle of the nation without seeing its relationship to  themselves.   Perhaps this cannot correctly be put down to indifference, because  it is hardly possible that any  Canadian could   be indifferent to the  outcome    of.  the  war, but there are  thousands of young men who    seem  not to have thought of taking a part  in the .war.    The "call of patriotism"  has not reached them.  In  Ottawa,  for instance, there has  brisk    recruiting   for the over-  forces,    but hundreds of young  of military age and physical  [it-  are still going about their regular occupations   and   sports , .vithout  even attempting to prepare themselves'  for the emergencies of the future. The  least.they might do is take advantage  of the opportunities being afforded for  securing  some   military  training,   so  that if the call is more insistent later  on they will be in a position to answer.  'The reason for the apparent apathy  on the    part of these young men  is  perhaps that they have failed to realize  the  seriousness  of the  war with  respect to Canada.    The    fighting    in  Europe seems a long way: from this  country.'. Yet; there    is little excuse  for. such lack of understanding.    The  fate of Canada would be too cruel to  contemplate should    the Teuton  barbarians gain the mastery in this war.  It is only by men and munitions that  the    Germans can    be defeated    and  Br.'tain and the world saved    from a  calamity   such   as   has   never   before  threatened, and Canada has hundreds  of thousands of men who have not yet  prepared to do their bit. Even though  they may not be wanted yet, they will  be doing a service if they prepare for  the time when they may be wanted-���������  Ottawa Free Press.  Use of Fertilizers  been  seas  men  ness  Should   be   Used   as  an   Adjunct   Only  to  best System  of Maintaining  Fertility  There is a great tendency where the  use of fertilizers is begun to continue  .their use year after year on the same  land without adopting other means  of maintaining productiveness. A  man finds that fertilizer will bring a  good return and he will keep using  it year after year without crop rotation, growing one grain crop after another. Such a use of fertilizers is  disastrous if continued, because under  such a system the humus is rapidly  exhausted in the soil, with the result  that the soil becomes compact, loses  its friable condition, and the yields  decrease in spite of the fertilizer.  Fertilizers alone will not maintain  soil fertility. They should be used  rather as an adjunct to the best systems of maintaining fertility than can  be practised. Used in this way there  will be no injury to the soil, and if  intelligently applied there will be very  good profits.  The only man --'ho can afford to  use fertilizers on grain crops year after year on the same land is the renter or temporary farmer who cares  nothing for the future of the soil. To  be sure, it requires a number of years  of such continued use before, the effects become apparent, and it may be  justifiable for a man who is just beginning, and who must meet his payments on tho land, to practice such a  system for a few years, but it should  not be. continued long. The only proper iu;e of commercial fertilizers" is in  connection with the best system of  crop rotation, of legume growing and  of'humus building that, a man caa  practice.  Brain Amputation  One of the. wonders of surgical  science has been performed in a  French military hospital where a  wounded soldier has had a sixth of  his brain amputated without missing it. Tlie patient was carried in  witli:a penetrating wound in the  occipital region .of the cranium.  Splinters of bono had caused an access to form in the left cerebral  hemisphere. These were removed  by Dr. A- Guepin, surgeon-in-chief  to the hospital, but. a fresh abscess  formed, and Dr. Guerpin was obliged on two occasions to amputate  portions of the brain which protruded frcm the wound. The patient  thug'lost at least a third of the left  hemisphere, but shows no special  signs of trouble, either of motivity.  sensibility., or ideation.

ELIOT ANALYZES THE TEUTONIC EFFICIENCY  Denounces the German System of Education, and  says   that  the  People  of Germany are Ignorant of Political Freedom  as   the  Anglo-Saxons  Know  It  Dr. Charles E. Eliot, president emer- .is not made by the child, but for him.  Itus of Harvard, has published a striking arraignment of Germany in "The  Road Toward Peace." In. this lie  elaborates views which since the beginning of the war he has contributed  to several newspapers, and. includes  his corresponde-ice with Jacob H.  Bchniff; which considered means by  ���������which"peace might be brought about.  Tne most interesting and authoritative chapters in the book are those in  ���������which Dr. Eliot analyzes the boasteu  German' efficiency, and finds it worthless except; in a very limited extern.  He denounces the German system ;of  education, and says that the people  of Germany are ignorant of political  freedom as Anglo-Saxon countries  know: it. He reviews the great discoveries and inventions of the past hundred yfiars, and find's that German/  has contributed little toward them.  She has produced nonDarwin, no Pasteur, no Cavour. She has not created  much more tlyin the Japanese, but like  the Japanese,: she has proved to have  marvellous gifts as an adapter of  great ideas born in other."countries-  With the opinion of a noted German  statesman that the Germans are "political asses" he heartily, agrees. :; It  ���������was -their ignorance upon this point  that explains the numerous mistakes  they made when calculating uporuthe  effect of. thev war upon Great Britain.  Nor is it the ignorance of the German  masses he considers but the ignorance  of their leaders. They had all the facts  .before them, but they could not make  the deductions. They did not know  how free people value the sanctity of  a contract. "Nothing could be franker," he writes, "than the original explanation which the German chancellor gave of the breaking of-treaties  concerning Ihe neutrality of Belgium;  but his frankness is evidence that he  did .not'understand in the least the  freeman's idea' of the sanctity of contract���������the foundation of all (public  law and usage in a free country. In a  country despotically or aristocratically ruled thero is'no such condition of  public opinion."  As regards German efficiency Dr.  Eliot writes:  "It is an efficiency which takes hold  of every child in Germany at birth  and follows every youth and every  man and woman through life until  death- It is that very efficiency whish  has prevented the last two generations  of Germans from knowing anything  about liberty. It is in the highest degree an autocratic efficiency in all  walks of German life, including education and the relations between the  sexes. The whole course of elementary  and secondary education for every  German boy or girl is determined by  the government, and there is no election by the pupil in it, no choice by  the child, except in its later stages  the choice between a technical school  or a gymnasium, and often that choice  German efficiency, however, is a very  real and formidable thing in all.the  competitions of the civilized world;  so that the most interesting thing to  bestudied as to the probable outcome  of the European war in this:���������is Germany with its autocracy more efficient  or less efficient than France and England .with.tb.eir liberties? The German  way of procuring industrial and commercial efficiency is to make each in  dividual man in the lirst place a man  well trained for tlie exact service he' thought they saw in it a cross and the  Superstition   Pervades   All   the   European Armies  The tale of the tri-color star has  not only gone the rounds of France,  but has crossed the frontiers and been  spread among tlie barbarians, according to' testimony I have just_ received  from a person interned in "Germany  for u while but now set at liberty.  This witness, who belongs to the  civil population of a locality invaded by  tho Teuton hordes, has just told me  that a German major confided to him  that he no longer expected victory for  the kaiser's armies after seeing in the  sky,--a star with the colors of the  French flag, whereas in 1870 a sword  was seen, and he added that this was  not an optical illusion, as others besides himself had. seen the same  thing!  ���������Really one would think we were still  in-the Fifteenth Century.

He denies that this wonderful efficiency has produced anything to compare with what has been produced in  liberty-loving nations. Efficiency has  produced an efficient Germany, it has  produced nothing for the world at  large. He ' finds that Britain, the  United States, France and Italy have  produced nearly all of the great ideas  and the great inventions .in the past  hundred years. In fact, Germany did  not invent much more than Turkey-  He considers it to be a remarkable  fact that systematic education of the  whole people has been carried on fc-r  one hundred years "in Germany, while  the free nations have been withoui  this system. Nevertheless, despite  this system, Germany is a political ignoramus. He believes that the reason  is that the German system; has' not  enough freedom in it. The German  educational system and all German efficiency might be likened to the complete apparatus of the telegraph, lacking only the electric current.  A few days ago Dr. Eliot expressed  the opinion that prayers for peace  would not be answered, and that, those  outside of Germany who uttered them  were traitors to the great ideals for  which the allies are lighting. In his  book he says that he does not believe  there will be any peace until Germany  is utterly smashed. "One cannot conceive of Germany admitting her defeat  until she- has: exhausted her supplies  of men, nicney and food," he' says. He  goes on to say, "Fortunately from our  point of view there is no more resolute  or dogged people in the. world thanthe  English, and we remember in that connection with satisfaction that many of  us are of English extraction." He says  that a new France has emerged from  this war,"a sober and serious France,  and he believes that the war will-mark  a great epoch for the Russian people.  They will win through it greater liberties than they xaiglit have expected  from a century of peace. . Dr. Eliot  has no doubt as to the result of the  war. He hopes and prays that the  United States will not be drawn into  it, and adds, "but that escape will be  jguc to the fact that Russia, England  and France have succeeded in defeating Germany and Austria-Hungary."  A German Romance  Long Trip of German Submarines is a  Myth  A recent story, much featured in  Berlin, has described"'������he trip of German submarines from Wilhelmshaven  to Constantinople, via Gibraltar  Straits. This is said by the British  naval authorities to be. an invention.  A British naval officer is quoted in the  New York Times as saying:  "That story was given out because  the German government wished to  impress the'United States with the  idea that its submarines could easily  cross the Atlantic and destroy shipping on this side in the event of'a war  between the two "countries. The Germans have established a submarine  base and factory on the Bosphorous  near Constantinople, and are turning  them out there in the same manner  as they have been doing at Zeebruggi,  in the North Sea- Thc parts for the  submarines are manufactured in Germany and sent by rail to Constantinople, through Austria, Roumania and  Bulgaria. The h.st two countries are  Bupposed to be neutral, but many  things can be accomplished for a  price, and the Germans have had no  difficulty in getting the big packing  cases containing tlu sections of thc  submarines through. Naturally, the  allies had to withdraw their battleships from the Dardanelles when the  submarines arrived on the scene."  Increased Production  Christian soldiers thought    they saw  in it a yataghan.  It is true that since the war began  curious coincidences have favored certain legends, not only in Germany, but  in all countries.  The announcement of the eclipse of  the sun, which took place on August  21, aroused lively apprehension among  the Russian peasants inhabiting the  zone of totality, who already at the  beginning of July considered this astronomical phenomenon as a sign of  war. .  On the other hand, at the moment  when the allies were saving Paris  from the defilement which the troops  of Von Kluck threatened to bring upon it in the early part of September,  a pretty comet shone in the heavens  at night, every evening more beautiful  and more brilliant. At once the populace, whose attention it attracted, associated it with the battles and it received the name of the "war cornet!"  Nevertheless this ethereal voyager already had wandered in our skies for  a year, having been discovered on December 17, 1913, by the astronomer  Delavan, at the observatory of La  Plata- But its visibility to the naked  eye at the seat of war caused an  imaginary role to be attributed to it.  Then there was the passage of Mercury before the sun on November 7,  1914, which the superstitious considered suspicious, as well as the mysterious, messages received from space in  the form- of shooting stars, one of the  most curious of which was that-which  fett in England on October 13, a celestial bomb weighing thirty-five pounds!

Dominion Government is to Appoint a  Commission  A royal commission is to be appointed by the government to investigate  the question of increased agricultural  production in the Dominion, together  ivHh ihe related questions of wider  markets, further employment for tho  unemployed, etc. The commission,  which is to be appointed at the recommendation of the prime minister, and  in response to a request made by the, Pi0ts  Congress of Mayors which visited the ^^^  capital some weeks ago, will be authorized to employ such scientific and  professional assistance as its members may determine. Its duration  shall be during pleasure, and it will  make interim reports from time to  time-  A minute of council has been issued  outlining the reasons for the appointment of the commission and the questions which it is to consider. In connection with opportunities for -increased agricultural production, the  following considerations are advanced:  (1) Improved methods of production with a view to a hotter return to  the producer; (2) assisting this purpose by proper instruction and demonstration; (3) increasing tlie acreage under production; (4) attracting  monstration of a type which would aid  in increasing a large and permanent  agricultural population; (f>) stimulating and encouraging co-operation  among Che producers; (G) providing  cold storage and abattoir facilities.  The minute of council setting forth  reasons calls attention to the desirability of manufacturing products into the  form in which they will be consumed,  commends the principle of co-operation, asks for consideration of unemployment problems and of Ihe employment of soldiers after the war, and  concludes with this expression:  "It seems reasonable that under the  conditions which have developed during the past six months opportunities  will arise for widening and extending  our markets, to the advantage not  only of Canada, but of thc countries  and communities with which trade  may thus be extended."

Care of School Gardens  How to Interest Pupils in the Care of  .  .the Gardens  Many teachers find it very hard to  have the work- carried on in the  school garden during the holidays.  When they arrive back at their school  in September the lot is usually a mass  of weeds. The Agricultural Gazette,  in offering some suggestions, states:  "All work should be done in duo  season, so that at vacation time the  plants will be well advanced, entire!-'  free from weeds, thinnca out when  necessary and properly cultivated.  An interest may thus be created that,  if only directed wisejy, will remain in  the minds of most pupils, who will  solve the 'weed problem' during vacation;  Many children regularly visit their  during the vacation and keep  in condition. Some are driven  by their parents, who also become  interested, and at their regular visits  to the village store or postoffice, make  trips to the school plots as well.  "Trustees of many schools meet on  Saturday afternoons and round up  the village children to accompany  them to the school grounds and perform the necessary weeding, etc.  The children's plots (of many of  these schools), furnish sufficient flowers for the Sunday services throughout the summer.  "A janitor of a village school, who  is generally hired by the year and  employs his time during vacation in  cleaning and repairing the ' school,  should be interested in the grounds  as well and act as a leader of the  children. In some schools, committees are appointed for each week of  the vacation, and each committee in  turn is held responsible. This plan  works well in town schools, where  many children go camping for part of  the time."  Sir William Crooks Speaks   Confidently About the   Prospscts of  Victory  in  a  Long   War, and Says There is no Need of  Fury of Attack, but he^who Hangs on will Win  The London D0ily Chronicle prints  an interview with Sir William Crooks  by Harold Begbie, in which the scientist gave his views o^ tho war. He  said:  "I think we started badly; we were  certainly not as well prepared as Germany. I do not,know that anybody can  rightly be blamed for that state of  things. We have done very well considering, and 1 am inclined to say that  as regards that part of the work in  which I have been able to render the  authorities-some" help," this country  will very soon b^- on an equality with  our foes. There is; no need for anxiety,'certainly no need for panic.  "It looks as if it will be a long war,  but the longer it lasts the stronger  will be the power of the allies. We  must simply set ourselves to wear out  the Germans. To do that we have only  to press steadily and quietly forward  on our road.  "We have not got to take cities and  execute wonderful marches. .'. All we  have to do is to go on with our absolute and unquestionable duty of  thinning the enemy. We must stay  long; we must sap him; we must  weaken him at every point; we must  destroy him by inches. After that  we can enter his country and do what  we like with  it.  "A great thing for men to 'convince  themselves of is that this war will  be won not by fury of attack and not  by gallantry, but, simply by hanging  on. He who hangs on longest will  win, and a man need not think very  profoundly to assure himself that,  whereas'.-"we"'can hang on almost indefinitely, the Germans cannot. Every  day might be called a victory for tli i  allies.   Time fights'for .us." ,. ���������  Asked his opinion "on the employment of asphyxiating gas, Sir William  said:  "On the whole, I am against its use  by the allies. The Germans have gone,  to the devil to help them. I don't liko  to think that we, with our just cause,  should go to the same source for assistance, but I can see the justice or  argument in favor of employing gas.  We in England, I believe, have now  made our preparations in' this respect  and it rests with the authorities to decide whether our troops should be supplied with such.a weapon.

There can be.no other end for civilized  mankind.! take it the Germanempire  will fall into its original parts; it will  be left with no power of attack; it  will never again be an organized machine for world mastery."  Mr. Begbie .referring to Sir William's vigor and intellectuality at the  age of So, says Sir .William was conscious in himself of .no change of faculty during the last thirty or forty  years. He can work as hard, see as  well, hear as-well, bear fatigue as well  and is just as interested in life now  as he was then. ��������� IndeeJ, he is inclined  to doubt whether he was aware in  himself of any physical inhibition for  more years than this-  "I feel," he. said, "very much as I  felt '���������'when  35 years  old."  Begbie adds: "We were speaking of  eyesight and he showed me a miniature dictionary, the pages of which,  were perhaps the breadth of a six  pence. I could distinguish not a  single letter* not even the capitals at  the top. I put on;glasses, but tho  words were still a mist. Sir William  gave me a magnifying glass and I  could then just spell the words, but i e  took, this tiny book out of my hands  and, without glasses, read aloud and  quite quickly three or four words with  their definitions in much smaller  type."  Will Free Turkish Slaves  The  Veiled    Women  of Turkey See  Their Freedom Ahead  When the allied fleets began bombarding the forts of the Dardanelles  the sad-eyed, silent "women of Turkey  smiled behind their veils���������for they  saw liberty ahead.  To the hidden women of the harem  the overthrow of the country will  mean to"a great extent freedom from  customs, centuries old, that have  made slaves of them.  They hope that the degrading life  of the harems will be done away with  ���������that the;- will be allowed to become  something" more than the playthings  of men and the hearers of children.  Since 1908 a sullen spirit of rebellion has been growing stronger than  ever before among 'Jurkish women  Protests that in these modern times  they should have to submit to such degradation have been whispered in the  closely-guarded women's quarters of  thousands   of  Turkish  homes.  For a while after the downfall or  tin old sultan, Abdul Hamid, their  hopes ran high, for then they were  allowed to discard their veils and go  out in the streets with their husbands  and brothers.  This good fortune lasted but a short  time, then the constitution was revised, and although a deputation of women waited on the ministers of the  capital, the latter would not give official sanction to their discarding the  veil.  Since then a little progress has  been made, but the majority are still  slaves. In some cases the bars are  gilded, but neverthelss they are prisoners.  Until the time she is 12 years old a  Turkish girl enjoys much the same  freedom as her little sisters the world  over. She can romp and play and go  to parties, but on her 12th birthday she becomes a woman, dons a veil  and from then on is a priosuer of the  harem.  She must spend her time in closely-  guarded rooms, smoking, reading,  drinking coffee and gossiping.  Here are some of the things she  cannot do:  Go out of doors unless heavily veiled  and guarded by male slaves of her  father or husband.  Go lo the theatre or restaurants.  See the man picked to be her husband until after she is married to  him.  Play outdoor games or indulge in  outdoor exercise  of any  kind.  Write or receive letters without hsr  husband seeing them.  Use fur or any other kind of trimming on street garments.  Lock the doors of her own room.  She is never safe . from the prying  eyes of male salves."-  While Turkish girls are usually  made to marry after they are 12 years  old, some are forced into marriage at  an earlier age.  Bulletin on Cut-Worms  Annual Loss Occasioned by These Insects  in   Canada   is   Enormous  Farmers, market gardeners and  others who cultivate the soil will be  pleased to know that the Entomological Branch of the Dominion Department of Agriculture has issued a 31-  page bulletin (No- 10) on "Cut-worms  and their Control," prepared by Mr.  Arthur Gibson, chief assistant entomologist. In the introduction it is  stated that cut-worms as a class rank  in importance with such well-known  pests as the San Jose Scale, the Codling Moth and the Hessian Fly, all ot  which are among our most destructive  insect enemies. There are certainly  few insects which, year after year, inflict such widespread damage as the  varicus caterpillars, known commonly  as cut-worms. The annual loss occasioned by these insects in Canada  amounts to hundreds of thousands of  dollars. In the bulletin the methods-  of controlling cut-worms are discussed fully. Under "Preventive Measures" the value of clean cultivation is  referred to, as well as the placing of  bands of tin or paper around plants  which are set out. "Remedial Meas-  sures" include descriptions of various  poisoned baits to destroy the cutworms, directions for the making of  proper furrows or ditches to prevent  the advance of armies of cut-worms,  etc. Fifteen common kinds of cutworms are described in popular detail  and much information given on the  habits and life-history of the various  species.  The bulletin is fully illustratr-d, tho  figures being clear and veil chosen.  Alto;.etber there are 20 illustrations  of cut-worms, cut-worm moths, injury  to plants, etc. Copies of this new  publication may be had free of charge  on application to the chief of the  Publication Branch, Department of  Agriculture, Ottawa. Inquiries regarding these insects, or other kinds  should be found to be injuring crops,  should be addressed to the Entomolo-  gis', Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.  VARffinE  An investigation conducted by the  seed branch shows that about sixty-  so-called varieties of corn are grown  for ensilage in Ontario-and Quebec,  and many farmers do not know what  variety they are planting. Late varieties are being used in districts where  they will not mature one year in five  t j the glazing of thc grain, which is  thc necessary condition to make sweet  ensilage. Some ordinary feed corn imported from the Central and Southern  States is used for seed. Most of this  is of a late variety entirely unsuited  to Canadian conditions, and is often  injured by heating.  The following recommended varieties of corn, are arranged in order of  their maturity: Quebec Yellow, Longfellow, Stand ford or North Dakota, Compton's Early, Golden  Glow, Early White Cap, Wisconsin No-  7. In selecting varieties for our northern districts, later-maturing, heavy-  yielding varieties may be better planted on a warm, sandy soil than on a  cold clayey one. Tho proper maturity is essential to high quality ensfl-  age, ami this should lie aimed at even  although an increased acreage is needed to give tho desired quantity.  "Lift Up Your Heads"  Wc have nothing liere to do with  slackers, but only with our Britisn  soldiers, who have gone readily to tho  help of the Lord against the mighty.  They may not have thought much of  their danger, but they knew their danger; they were prepared, as they said  themselves to do their "bit of work,"  and to risk the sacrifice of their lives;  and their wives, their mothers, their  fathers, their sisters, joined In the  sacrifice, not, perhaps, without apprehension, but wit iout any attempt to  turn them from the perilous road. The  spirits of our fallen warriors would  turn from us if their death brought  dismay or cowardice to our souls. Let  no man or woman think that the losa  of life is fruitless, or that our soldiers  have fallen in vain.���������Inverness Cou������  ier. t ("nJtjr *i *6*"=*ic,i.t'irfi4ii_-,3  u iJixiK.xJi������vj*.>x-TZii~*:>**Mr>*r������,.
