 B-  and  Kettle VaSley Orchardist  FOURTEENTH YEAR���������No. 44  GRAND FORKS,  B. C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAR  The following directions   for canning tomatoes at  home  have   been  ���������issued .by the B.   C. markets commissioner's office:  Tomatoes are surely a most impor  tant and most valuable fruit because  they enter tnto some dish at   nearly  < . every dinner.  They are used in soups, entrees  and sauces, and are used whole for  - baking made overs: and for salads.'  They are also most useful in giving  a tasty touch to left over meat dishes. In the making of pickles.chow*.  chow, etc. green tomatoes are indispensable:- The housewife may readily have her own supply of home  canned tomatoes and home made  tomato stock for winter use, as well  as some tomatoes ready to serve at  any time with   lettuce   us  a   salad.-  - Macaroni baked with tomato sauce  ��������� is gradually displacing macaroni  ��������� baked with cheese, being much more  tasty and digestible.  Of all to'matoes.those grown in tbe  interior valleys of British Columbia  ' are unequalled in fine grain, richness  of color and firmness of flesh. The  supply . of these ideal tomatoes is  n6vv'at'itS'~h"'eign"^ and 'the " house-'  - wife must buy promptly to secure  the choicest of the crop, being assured that prices as well are at their  lowest; besides the peach and plum  preserving season wi.l be here very  shortly.  The following general directions  on tomato canning and recipes have  ' been prepared by Mrs. R. J. Deach-  man, who has the reputation in Calgary of an expert on home '���������canning:  Canned goods keep because they  are properly sterilized and properly  sealed. Tomatoes may be canned,'  and will keep indefinitely by the  following method:  N 1. An ordinary wash boiler with,a  tight-fitting lid, and a" talse bottom  put in a wire netting or a piece of  board to fit the boiier, will answer  the purpose of a cooker.  2. Sterilize jars) tops and rubbers  thoroughly by boiling them.  3. Choose sound, firm but 'not  over-ripe slock.  -1. Blanch the tomatoes by placing  llieui in a muslin bag, bulling water  poured over them to entirely cover,  and allowing them to boil a minu'.e.  Then plunge in cold water to loosen  the skins and harden the pulp  5. Peel nt once, atul |j?iek in the  jars, adding tomato juice to fill the  jars, and it level teaspoon of salt to  each quart. Do not add any water,  as tomatoes are themselves 91 per  cent water.  ���������J. i'lace rubbers and tops in place,  partially tighten lops and sterilize  the given time.  7. Remove from boiler, tightening the tops an you fill each one,  and stand the jars iip.-ide down to  cool,  In cunning whole tomatoes prepare the liquid as follows:  Alter blanching and removing  skins fioin some tomatoes, cut up  and boil in a preserving kettle for  25 minutes. Rub through a sieve  to remove seeds and to make smooth  Return to the kettle, and reheat.  While the strained liquid is beating,  select some small firm,ripe tomatoes ' week.  just big enough to slip into the jars.  Place these in boiling water for a  moment,.core and peel. Pack carefully in'the jars without crowding  .or spoiling their shape. Add a level  teaspoonful of salt to each quait and  fill up the jars with the strained hot  liquid. Put on rubbers and tops,  .partially tighten tops, and place in  the boiler on the false bottom. Have  the water in the boiler rather hot, to  prevent the already, hot jars from  breaking. Sterilize for half an hour,  tighten tops, remove from boiler  and cool.  Tomatoes canned in this way are  available for serving in any way  where fresh whole tomatoes are  used, such as in salads, breading or  baking and the strained juice is the  basis of many soups.  Canned tomatoes for general   use:  Blanch and peel the tomatoes and  pack in jars as nearly whole as possible, filling the jars completely.  Add a level teaspoon of salt to each  quart. Place rubbers and tops in  place, partially tighten,put iu boiler  on false bottom, with water suflic  ient to come about half way' up the  jars Bring to the boil and sterilize  for one hour. Tighten tops, remove  from boiler and stand jars upside  down to cool.  Thick canned tomatoes:  URGES THAT STATE  "So intense is the interest in the  war among the Russian peasants,"  says a writer in the Novoe Vremya,  ''that every train stopping at a wayside station is besieged by. peasants  of both sexes and all ages stretching  their hands to tbe passengers and  crying. 'Give us a paper.'  "Before the war the Russian peasant looked upon a newspaper as  material for rolling up a cigarette.  Nowhereads.it tio'm beginning'to  end."  i This prompts the writer to urge  tbe establishment of a great "People's Newspaper," to be run by the  state, not only as a newspaper for  the masses, but also as a 'means of  popular edueation.  i "Russia." he says, ''never developed systematically. - All her pro  gress has been sudden and by huge  strides. Peter the Great started reforming his nobles not by trimming  their   patriarchial    beards,   but  by  ! shaving them off all at once.  EWS OF THE CITY INDEPENDENT  CD. OF RIFLES  Pete Santure had a narrow escape  from serious injury while blasting on  the wagon road above the smelter  last Friday. In firing a blast a defective fuse was used, and the shot  went off before be had time to seek  a place of safety. A big boulder  came straight for his head, but  he threw up his arm to protect his  face, and thus escaped with a badly  bruised arm and a damaged eye from  smaller pieces of rock. The force  of the rock striking him stunned  him for a few seconds. He has now  nearly recovered from the effects of  bis injuries.

Morrison had an unpleas  ant experience last Saturday while  riding horseback across the Kettle  river and leading a couple of horses.  His right leg in some manner became entangled with the ropp,which  was fastened to the saddle, and before he could extricate himself the  limb was severely bruised by the  horses pulling on the rope from different.points of the compass.

There never was seen a more complete, inspiring exhibit of tlie wonders  ot ;i great, country.  The Canadians have gone to the  tiling themselves, they have eclipsed  completely the exhibits of every one  ol our individual states, and that j.s  putting it very mildly.  livery Canadian certainly should  visit, the Panama-Pacific exposition,  if-only to conlirm the opinion he  probably holds that Canada is a  -wonderful place and its government a  magnificent and 'capable government.  in. addition to Canadians, represen-,  tauves     of     very     state    and   every  county    in   the   United States  should  make it a point to spend a"thoughtful day in the Canada building.  They will learn there that it is  possible for n people not afraid of  ������������������paternalism of government influence"  to do wonders for the building-up of a  country-  And they will see splendid work  done by- private corporations, railroads and others, under proper and  efficient control by the people.  The Canadian building is a magnificent, dignified structure; its em-,  ployees are intcligeut, courteous, well  chosen men.  .Warvelousiy ingenious and striking  exhibits tell the story of the great  nation that lies north of ns. Canada  is an empire ot strength, beauty,  prosperity and unlimited possibilities.  Intelligent citizens of this nation  will rejoice in that Canadan exhibition, with its many proofs of Canadian intelligence, energy, good government and good citizenship.  JOvery citizen of the United StateJ  should he glad to know that we have  as our brother on the north a people  bo powerful, a realm so vast'and  prosperous.  Forever there can be between the.  United States and Canada only  friendly feeling and brotherly rivalry.  The Canadians, at great expense  and with great intelligence, have  sent to our exposition a demonstration of their power and ability. Every  American should make it a point to  study it- And every one who knows  the difficulty of developing a new  country will bow reverently to tlxe  power lhat Canada displays.  The exhibition made cannot properly be described. Tt is your duty to  see it.  It shows the beginning of man's  work-in a wild country, the forest,  the animals, the wilderness. And it  shows man conquering the earth,  making his home of the forest, his  fertile fields of the rough plains, his  servants of the waterfalls and of his  happiness in independence and free  government.  A wonderful empire is Canada, not  a part if England, but a greater  England. The people of this country  should be grateful for the exhibition  that Canada has sent to us.  See the Canada building if you can  and -all the other wonders of the  Panama exposition, and all the wonders of this great- country that lies  between.���������Los Angeles Herald-  The     Prime     Minister  on   Service   of !  Women in the War |  Speaking at a meeting organized by j  the   wholesale and  retail  distributing j  trades,; recruiting committee,  held in j  Westminster Palace hotel, llr. AKquUh j  paid a rfibuto to the women who have  answered   their   country's   call,   ana  are  releasing men   from   many  industries, iu order to offer themselves for  the new armies.  The prime minister iu the course of  ] his remarks said:  "To look at another branch���������a complementary i^but perhaps not less important branch of the mutter, yd far as  it concerns you���������namely, war service  for women. Up to April 24, more than  5O,00u' wero on the register. I think  that is a very satisfactory number Lo  have accumulated in so short u time  after tlie making of the appeal.  "Let me give you, by way of illustration only, the fact which was  brought to my notice a week or two  ago, when J was in Newcastle, appealing for.a large number ot men and  women to take part in the fabrication  and supply of munitions for the war.  [ went over one ot>thc largest���������I suppose tlie largest���������of our engineering  works, and 1 found that iu the department which is now engaged in the  manufacture of shells the number ot  employees had increased in the course  of the last three months tenfold, and  among those who were devoting their  time and their labor to that particular  form of industry, there were, 1 think,  something like, three or four thousand  women. Now, prima facie, one would  think that the manufacture of shells  was not exactly the kind of work for  which the 'hands or the brains or the  special aptitudes of women were peculiarly, appropriate, but that is a great  mistake. ]n the making of the fuse,  which in some ways is the most important part of the shell, female labor  is just as good���������I am not sure it is  not a liltle better���������than' the labor of  men, and when I asked, as 1 naturally did, seeing all these women engaged in this to most of them absolutely  novel occupation, whence Ihey had  been Recruited, f was told that some of  them iia'd been milliners, some dressmakers, waitresses, barmaids, domestic servants���������in fact, there was not a  single branch of what we may call  normal female industry which had not  been drawn upon for recruits in the  making of shells. If that can be dona  in an instant from the normal activities of\ women, xit ought to be a far  easier task iu the particular trades in  which you are mainly and directly  concerned, viz., the distribution,  wholesale and retail, of goods. Therefore, I think the employers, if there  lie any such, who at first sight might  feel a doubt as to the practicability of  replacing their skilleiL male assistants by female labor may take encouragement by the example which'has  been set them by the great munitions  firms of the country.  Birds on the Battlefield  A British officer writes: "I have  seen and heard large numbers (eight  in one old garden) of nightingales living and singing where our guns are in  position. As 1 write L can hear the  blackbirds and thrushes singing.* and  the sparrows are carrying large pieces  of straw about as though nothing were  happening���������and yet at the centre one  of the heaviest cannonades 1 have  ever heard is in progress not three  miles away, and the guns are firing ou  both sides and behind this olil chateau  where 1 am writing."  s  the British Empire  Warm Walls Keep Clean  The reason that lath and plaster  walls become streaked is explained  by John Aitken in Nature as due to  the tendency of hot air to deposit its  dust on cold surfaces: and the colder  the surface the weaker the power of  resistance. So where the laths protect the plaster from the cold outside the plaster receives less deposit  of dust than where it is between the  laths.  The Big- Shells  Cause, Greatest Havoc  Seven-eighths  Made by  the  by  of    Wounds in  Galicia  Large,,Calibre Gun  Missiles  Seven-eighths of the--wounds in  Galician fighting were caused  shells, half .of which were" fired- from  big calibre guns, said Surgeon-Major  Lesghintseff. to an interviewer.  ���������'Bullets p'iay no part now," he continued, "and the infantryman's ��������� rifle  is a toy. infantry merely occupies  the trenches the cannon have won.".  Most devastating of all are the new  skoda shells of the Germanic allies,  which are 18 inches in diameter and  weigh 2,800 pounds- The slcoda howitzer shoots at a high f-.ngle and its  shell penetrates '10 feet into soft  earth before exploding. It explodes  two seconds after striking. These  j howitzers do not resemble the Krupp  Wherever    a    hot steam  or  water ; mortars of the same calibre, to which  are said to be superior.* in every  pipe conies through a wall a vertical  streak of dust may be seen above it,  due to the hot air driving the dust  again?.! the cold wall. Rooms that  arc li?aiod by open grates are- much  less dusty than those heated by radiators, because iu the former the furniture is heated principally by radiation, and being warmer than the air.  it repels thc particles of dust instead  of catching them, while in the latter  the air heats the furniture and in so  doing deposits its dust on  it..  Kooms lighted by electricity Keep  clean longer than those heated by  gas, simply because the light is almost cold.  ft has been summed up as follows:  "Any surface hotter than the air  keeps free from  dint."  our  Wood Supply  A supply of wood sufficient for  tuturs needs will bo the result of:  1���������Reducing the jiuv capita consumption.  2���������Protecting the forests from fire.  .'1���������Increasing the annual growth per  acre through the practice of forestry,  By greater economy in the use of  wood the per capita consumption  could easily be reduced from the present figure of 2G0 cubic feet to 150  or even 100 cubic feet without hardship, We use only half the total volume of the tree and waste the other  half.  W. N. U. 1062  they  way.  When a skoda shell hits it means  death to everything within a radius  of 150 yards and even farther off.  The pressure of its gas rips open the  bomb proof shelters and catches  those who escape the metal 'fragments and Hying debris. This gas  enters the body cavities and tears  llesh asunder, sometimes stripping  the men of their clothes. Of course  the men in the immediate neighborhood of the explosion are annihilated.  So fierce is the heat of the explosion of the shells that it melts rifle  barrels as if they hail been struck  by lightning.  timidly  A  Soft Answer  A Hebrew peddler   rapped  at the kitchen entrance.    '  Mrs. Carter, very angry at being  interrupted " in her washing, flung  open the door and glowered at him.  "Did ve wish to see me?" she demanded in threatening tones.  The peddler backed off a few st?ps.  "Veil, if I did," he assured her with  an apologetic grin, "[ got myvish;  thank you."  The  Glorious Stand  of the  Canadians  at Ypres  (By the Canadian Kecord Officer)  (Continued From Last  Week)  lt is perhaps worth mentioning that  two privates of the 48th mgniandars  who hound their way into tus trencher  commai.aed by L,ieut.-Col. Lipsett,  '9uth Winnipeg Kitles, Sth Battalion,  perished .in the fumes, and it was noticed that their faces became blue immediately after dissolution. The Koyal  Highlanders ot .Montreal, 13th battalion, and the 48th Higniandors, .15t:i  Battalion, were more especially affeet-  c I by the discharge. The Koyal Highlanders, tLough considerably shaken,  remained immov.blt upon their  ground- The -lSth Highlanders, which  no doubt received a more poisonous  discharge,-were for the moment dismayed, and, indeed, their trench, ic-  cording to the te'jth-ony of very hardened soldiers, became intolerable.  - The battalion ��������� retired from the  trench, but for a very short distance,  and for a very short time. . in a few  moments they were again'their own  men. They advanced on and occupied the trenches which they had momentarily abandoned.  Jn the couite of the same night the  3rd Brigade, which had already displayed'a resource, a gall..ntry, and a  tenacity for which no eulogy could bo  excessive, was exposed (and with it  the whole allied cause) to a peril still  more formidable. It has been explained, and, indeed, tha fundamental  situation made the p-TU clear, that  several German divisions were attempting to crush .or drive back this  devoted Brigade, and in any eve.it  to use their enormouu numerical superiority, to sweep around and overwhelm" its left wing. At some point  iu the line which cannot be precisely  determined, the last attempt partially  succeeded, and in the course of this  critical struggle, Genua:, troops in  considerable, though not in overwhelming, numbers swung past the  unsupported left to the Brigade, and,  slipping in between the wood and St.  Julien, add 3d to the torturing auxie--'  ties of-the long-drawn struggle by the  appearance, nnd, indeed, for the moment the reality, of isolation from the  Brigade.base.  In the exertions made by the 3rd  Brigade during this supreme crisis, it  is almost impossible to single out a battalion without injustice to others; but  though the efforts of the Royal Highlanders of Montreal, 13th Battalion,  were only equal to those of the othor.  battalions who did such heroic service, it so happened' by chance that  the fete of some of its officers attracted special attention. Major Nora-  worthy, already almost disabled by a  bulletwour.d, Was bayoneted and kil.l-  ed while he was rallying his men wi.h  easy cheerfulness.  The case of Major McCuaig, of the  saine battalion, was not less glorious,  although his death can claim no witness. This most gallant officer was  seriously wounded, in a hurriedly: constructed trench, at a moment when it  would- have been possible to remove  him to safety. He absolutely refused  to move, and continued to guide an.1,  encourage his men. But the situation  grew'.constantly worse, and peremptory orders were received for an immediate withdrawal.  Those- who were compelled to obey  ti.em wer> most in-lste-t to carry  with tham, at whatever risk to their  owu mobility and saf ty. an "officer tj  whom they were-devotedly "attached.  But hs, knowing, it may be, better  than they the exertions which still lay  iu front of them, and unwilling to inflict on .hem the disabilities of a  maimed man, very resolutely refuse.'.,  and asked <.f them one thing only, that  there should be given to him as he lay  alone in the trench two loaded Colt  revolvers to add to his own which they  in his right hand as he made his last  request. And so, \yith three revolvers  ready to his hand for use, a very  brave officer waited to sell his lil\\  wounded and raekeu with p'.'.in, in an  abandoned trench.  On Friday afternoon the left of  thc Canadian lino was .strengthened  by important reinforcements of  British trcops, amounting to seven  battalions. Every effort was made  from lirst to last to reinforce the Canadian division with the greatest possible speed and from this time forward the 'Ivisiou also received further assistance on the left, from a  series   oi*    French'    counter-attacks,  exposed to fire  win   no   longer  pushed in a north-easterly    direction  from tiie ���������canal bank.  But the artillery fire of the enemy  continually grew in intensity,, and it  became more and more evident that  the Canadian salient could no longor  be maintalijfcd against the overwhelming superiority of-numbers by which"  it was assailed. , Slowly, stubbornly,  and contesting ever; ; aril, the defenders gave ground until the salient gradually receded from the apex, .near*, the  point where it had originally aligncl  with the French, and fell back upon  St.. Julien. Soon if became evident  that even St. Julien  from right to left,  'enable.  The 3rd Brigade was therefore ordered-to retreat (further south, selling  every yard y{ ground as dearly as it  had done since five o'clock on Thursday. But it was found impossible,  without hazarding far larger forces,  to disentangle detachments of the  Koyal Highlanders of Montreal, loth  Battalion, and of the Royal Montreal  Regiment, J IHi Battalion: The Brigade was ordered, and not a moment  too soon, to move back.  lt left these units with hearts as  heavy as .hose with which his comrades had said fare-well to Major McCuaig. The German tide rolled, indeed,  over the deserted village, but for several hours after the enemy had become master of tbe village the salient, and persistent rifle fire which survived showed that they were not yet  master of the Canadian rearguard. If  they died, they died worthily of Canada.'  The enforced retirement of the 3rd  Brigade (and to have stayed longi-r  would have 'i.en nurdness)" reproduced for the 2nd Brigade, commanded  by Brigadier-Ceneral Curry, iu a singularly exact fashion the position of  the 3rd ^Brigade itself at the moment  of the withdrawal of the French. The  2nd Brigade, it must be remembered,  had retained the whole line of  trenches, rough!-- 2,500 yards, which  it was holding at 5 o'clock on Thursday afternoon, supported by the .n-  comparabie exertions of the 3rd Brigade, and by the highly hazardous  deployment in which necessity had involved that Brigade.  The 2nd Brigade had maintained its  lines, lt now devolved on General Curry, commanding this brigade, to repeat the tactical manoeuvres with  which, earlier in the light, the 3rd  Brigade had adapted itself to thc  flank movement of overwhelming  numerical superiority. He flung his  left Hank round south, and his record  is that in the very crisis of this immense struggle he held his line of  trenches till Sunday he- had not  on Sunday afternoon he had not  abandoned his trenches- .There were  none left. They had been obliterated  by artillery. ������������������  He withdrew his undefeated troops  from the fragments ol' his field forti-  ���������lications, and the hearts of his mm  W'ere as completely unbroken as the  parapets of his trenches .'.were completely broken. In such a brigade it  is invidious to single .out any battalion for special praise, but it is perhaps necessary to the story to point  out that -Lieut-Colonel Lipsett, commanding the &0th Winnipeg Rifles, 8th  Battalion of the 2nd Brigade, held the  extreme left of the brigade position at  the most critical moment. ",."*���������  The battalion was expelled from-the  trenches early on Friday morning by  an emission of poisonous gas, but recovering in three-quarters of an hour  it counter-attacked, retook, the  trenches it had abandoned, and bayoneted the enemy. And after the 3rd  Brigade had -been forced to retire,  Lieut-Colonel Lipsett held his position, though his left was in the air,  until two British regiments filled up  the gap on Saturday .night  Tlie individual fortunes of these two  brigades have brought us to the  events of Sunday afternoon, but it is  necessary, to mak.e the story complete,  to recur for a moment to the events  of the morning- After a,very formidable attack, the enemy succeeded in  capturing the village of St. Julien,  which has so often been referred to  in describing the fortunes~of the Canadian left. This success opened up a  new and very menacing line of advance, but by this time further reinforcements had arrived.  Here again, it became evident that  the tactical necessities of the situation dictated an offensive movement  as the surest method of arresting further progress. General Alderson, who  was in command of the reinforcements, accordingly directed that an  advance should be made by another  British brigade which had been  brought up in support The attack  was thrust through the Canadian left  and centra, and as the troops making it  swept on. many of them going to cer  tain death, they paused an instant,  and, with deep-throated cheers for  Canada, gave the frst indication to  tne D'vision of the warm admiration  which their exotlcns had excite! in  the British Army.  The advance was indeed costly, but  it was made with a devotion which  could not be denied. The story is one  of which the Brigade may be proud,  but it does not bolong to the'special  accov. it of the fortunes of the Canadian contingent. It is sufficient for our  purpose to notice that the attack succeeded in its object, and the German  advance along the line momentarily  threatened, was arrested.  We had reached, in describing the  the events of the afternoon, the points  at which the trenches ol"-thc 2nd Brigade had been completely destroyed.  This brigade, the 3rd Brigade, and the  considerable reinforcements which by  this lime filled thc gap between thc  two brigades, were gradually driven  fighting every yard upon-a line running roughly from Fortuin, south of  St. Julien, in a north-easterly direction  towards Passchendaelo. Here the two  brigades were relieved bylwo,British  as frituful, and alas! as costly as sold-'  iers ��������� have ever, been called* upon to  make.  Monday morning broke bright anil  clear and found the Canadians behinj  the firing line. But this day, too, was  to bring its anxieties. The attack was;  still pressed, and it became necessary  to ask-Brigadier-General Curry whether he could once more call on -his  shrunken  brigade.  "The men are tired," this -indomitable soldier replied, "but they are  ready and glad,.to go again to the  trenches- " And so once mora, a hero  leading heroes, the-general marched  -back the men of the.2nd Brigade, r-j-  "duced to a quarter of its original  strength, to the very apex of the line  as it existed at that moment.  This position he held all day Monday; on Tuesday he was still-occupying reserve trenches, and on Wednesday was relieved and retired lo billets  in the rear.  Such, in the most general outline, Is"  the story of a great "and glorious feat  of arms. A story told so soon after  thc event, while rendering bare justice  to units whose doings fell under the  eyes of particular observers, must do  Jess than justice to others who played'  Their part���������and all did���������as gloriously  as those whose special activities it is  possible even at this stage loiiescribe.  But the friends of'tnen who fought in  other bittalions may be content in  the knowledge tint they,"too, shall  learn, when the time allows the complete co-relation of diaries, the exact  part which each unit played in these  unforgettable days: It is rather accident than special" distinction which  has made it possible to select individual battalions for'mention.  lt would not be right to close even;  this account withent n word of tribute  to the auxiliary services. The signal-,  -lers were always cool and resourceful. "  The telegraph and telephone wires  were being constantly cut, and many  belonging to this' service rendered up  their lives ir. the discharge of their  duty, carrying out repairs with the  most complete calmness in exposed  positions. The "despatch carriers, as  usual, behaved with the greatest bravery. , Theirs is a lonely life; and' very  often a-lonely death. One cycle' messenger lay on the ground badly wounded. He stopped a passing officer and  delivered his message, with seme verbal ins'tructiens.

"Arise, O Israel." The empire is engaged in a struggle without quarter,  and without compromise, against an  enemy still superbly organized, still  immensely powerful; still confident  that its strength is the mate of its  necessities.

While it w.-.s in the interests of the  country at large that flic advances  should bo made, those directly benefited by the same will, it is urged, no  doubt realize that they secured the  assistance at a much lower rate of  interest than would have been possible even had their credit enabl'd  them to deal with the banks or other  financial concerns, and. they will  therefore, it is hoped, fully realize  their .obligation Lo repay the advances in full out of their first sales  of this year's crop/  With the object of facilitating such  action; the government is arranging  with the different giuin^purchasing  concerns in the west for their cooperation in the collection this fail  of the amounts outstanding.

In the.use of these  Pills there is splendid vigorous health,  with    glowing cheeks and  sparkling  eyes, for every -unhappy    fragile girl  who  is struggling on to womanhood  in a wretched-state of health.

I was as pale as a ghost,  suffered from heac-achesj severe palpitation of the heart at the slightest exertion.   I had little or no appetite and  seemed to be drifting into a decline.  I was attending high school in Vancouver at the time, and tlie doctor advised me to stop. I did so and.took his  treat&ent for some time, but it did  not help me in the least.    Upon the  advice of a friend I, begau taking Dr.  Williams'   Pink  Pills  and  in   a  very  short time they gave me back complete  health  and  enabled  me   to  resume my studies-   I have enjoyed the  best of health since, and owe it all to  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."

Peasant is of Different Type From the Cossack  We are most apt to think of the  Russian' soldier wholly in terms of  the Cossack, whereas the common  Russian peasant who has shouldered  his gun to march against the "Ger-  mauskis" is of a quite different, type,  if accounts are true. In the A'meri-  can Magazine, ' for example,, Capt.  Granville Forleseuc gives us the following picture of him:  "The Russian common soldier is  one of the most patient of creatures.-  He has all the qualities of a willing  horse. He follows his officers blindly. -Judged by American standards,  he lacks initiative, but in the war of  Lhe trenches initiative plays little  part. You can put a company of  Russian soldiers into a trench and  they will stay there until they are  all killed, captured, or frozen. When  it so happens that all their officers  are disabled they have one simple  rule���������to charge. They.have received  orders' that under no circumstances  must they go back, s-e they merely  go forward.  " "I don't believe that they know  much of what the "war is all about,  but they have a distinct dislike for  the Germans. It is said that they  never did understand why they were  fighting the- Japanese, who were a  people practically unknown to" them.  But the 'Germanskis,' theyJiave been  told, want to take a big slice of Holy  Mother Russia. No sacrifice is "too  great to prevent this. Judging from  the great masses of troops I^have  seen, and these include regiments  from the emperor's guard division  .and Siberian Fusiliers, I believe Russia to have the: finest raw, material  'for her armies of any nation of the  world-" -      -  Deficiency in thc Supply is Noticed in  the United States  ��������� Cost of dressed lamb and mutton  has reached levels that prompt retailers to advocate tlie boycott as a  remedy. During the first five months  of tho current year receipts of sheep  and lambs at the six principal markets of the United States���������Chicago,  Kansas City, Omala, St. Louis, St.  Joseph, and . Sioux City���������were but  3,6*10,527 head, a decrease of ],ICS,-  764, compared with the same period  of the ��������� previous year. ISvery primary  receiving point exhibited a deficiency.  May receipts at these markets aggregated 52-1,877, inclusive of goats, a  decrease of 24S,054, compared with  May, 1914. Prom every supply  source comes the same' report. Thc  native sheep industry has all but  disappeared and the mutton- eaters  of the country are dependent on diminishing western flocks for supply.  The situation 'in Montana indicates  the extent to which depiction of flocks  has been carried- Five years ago  Montana was literally deluging the  stock yards with sheep.' Threats of  free trade, an Hinremiinerative wool  market and an invasion of the range  by settlers forced the flock owner to  liquidate. By many the Montana movement was regarded as evidence of increased-production, but it proved to.be  "a last run of shad." A speculator who  recently scoured the region around  Glendive, Mont, in jm effort to contract stock for delivery, reported that  he found less than 5,000: sheep, in an  area that carried more than l'OO.OOO  three years-ago, and all over the stat  similar reduction may be seen.-  Breeders' Gazette.

Gunnery    of the   British  Navy  is  Due to  Wonderful  Invention  Of all the remarkable things on  board a warship probably nothing is  more amazingthan the .way the big  guns find their target and keep on  hitting, if once they have got the  range.

The indiscriminate bestowal of knighthood on mere politicians will  undoubtedly result in more  titles coming in contact with  the  slime of the nether world.  i  !  i    Hundreds of the best pure bred cattle will be shown at the Spokane Interstate Fair and Live Stock Show.at  Spokane, Sept. 13 to IS, these dates  affording an opportunity for breeders  who have entered the World's championships at the exposition at San  Francisco to stop and show en route.  All available room at the fair  grounds will be required to- meet the  demands for show space, but no exhibitor will be excluded for want of room  as the management is planning extensions to meet the demands.  Thereis hung up.as,cash premiums  in the live stock 'department l?5948,  and besides there are numerous special premiums offered by-breeders' associations. ..Entries close August 31.  B. E. Faville, who has so successfully supervised this department, is  again superint'endant, and he is enthusiastic over the prospects of the.  showing of cattle, excelling ,any previously made.  The date of the provincial  elections is more of a mystery  than the million-dollar mystery. The latest guess at the  -coast is that they will be held  early in November.

Superintendent of Cattle Department  of the   Spokane    Interstate    Fair   arid  Live  Stock' Show.  Speaking of the prospects, Supt.  Faville said:  "The cattle department of the Interstate Fair this year, promises a larger  number of entries than in previous  years. It will be recalled that last  year the Spokane Interstate Fair had  the largest exhibit of cattle in its history. The leading dairy breeds: and  beef breeds were represented by prominent breeders of the four Northwest  states. This year the outlook is' for  a still larger exhibit. Entries are already coming in, which shows that  plans are being made by not only the  exhibitors in the four states, but from  as far east as Wisconsin and from  western Canada. The raising of the  embargo on the foot and mouth disease means that the Interstate Fair  will be greatly benefited.  "Exhibitors showing at the fair this  year will meet with greater opportunities of displaying and selling the pure  bred live stock from their herd than  in previous years, because the demand  for pure bred stock this fall is sure tp  come. A meeting of the Pure Bred  Live Stock Breeders' Association of  Washington will be held during fair  week. A catalog of exhibitors and animals exhibited will be issued, as was  done last year, and publicity will be  given to the department on a larger  scale than in previous years. Tt is  planned .during the fair week that on  each day a live stock parade will be  made in front of the grandstand."  Old exhibitors have advised Supt.  Faville that they are planning to bring  larger displays than they did last year,  and are now lining up their stock and  getting them in condition. Many will  take their stock from Spokane to the  Panama-Pacific exposition at San  Francisco, to exhibit in the world's  championships, some stopping enrcute  at exhibitions to follow the Interstate  Fair, while some from Canada enroute  to San Francisco will stop over in Spokane for fair week, adding to the interest in the competition.  Every livestock raiser, will be sent  a premium list upon request to the  secretary, Geo. P. Larsen, at Spokane.

It must  be remembered that . the horse, like  all dumb animals, can only be made  to understand language by acconir  panying action with -words, that is,  some' action must be associated with  the comma'nd. For example, on com-,  ing to the animal while'yet in the  stall, we want to teach him to step  aside, so we may be able to get up  to'his head, we say "Step over," and  at the same time lay our hand on his  hip on the side from where it is lo  move, and increase the weight of the  hand to a push, until the colt steps'  over.

S.  s  Reserves Administered More Economically, Yet More Efficiently  According to ,a report received by  Mr* Duncan Campbell Scott, deputy  minister ol Indian affairs, giving the  lindings of the Indian commissions of  the United States as to their recent investigations in Canada, the Canadian  Indian wards of the government are  far better looked after than the .Indians across thc line are under the  United States Indian department.  Canada's Indian population, says  the report, is 98,774 on reserves, 5,000  off reserves and 50,000 halfbrceds,  making a,total of 143,77-1, or nearly  half the total Indian population of the  United States. Notwithstanding the  greater comparative difficulty and  larger relative cost of administration  on the smaller and more widely scattered reserves in Canada, the cost of  Indian administration in this country  incliftling schools, is less than $20 per  capitaSaJ's compiircd with about $40 in  the United States, and -despite  this, according to Mr. Abbott, there is  undoubtedly closer supervision of individual Indians iu the Dominion.  Tlie Indians of Canada earn ?2 to  every ?L earned by the tribesmen  south of the border. There are only  two stenographers employed in the  entire Indian field service of Canada,  and only 37 clerks, as compared with  GOO stenographers and clerks in tlie  United States service.  "Land grafter," continues the report, "is a phrosc unknown in Indian  affair*} in Canada, so completely safeguarded is Indian ' land. The explanation is simple. Tho Indian reserves in Canada are closed reserves,-  they are not allotted- An Indian does  not acquire title to an individual-tract  of land on the reserve, either in trust  or in fee, until he has become enfranchised, .and enfranchisement is a  long and tedious process. He is located on such land as he is able and  willing to use. but his possessory  righf adheras only so long as he  makes beneficial use of it."  ]n the suppression of the liquor  traffic the report notes that the Canadian system is more efficient and  much more economical than that in  the United States. The Canadian law  is also more comprehensive, including  in its scope every possible sort of intoxicant or opiate or derivative thereof. Its enforcement is sure and  prompt.

Edison has  perfected another invention, which he  took to his home in Llewellyn Park  recently to test it-  *A. few minutes after Charles Edison  began operating tlie device for the  edification of his father, people living in the valley east of Llewellyn  park telephoned police headquarters  .ami asked: "What is that terrible  light shooting out ol the park?"  A policeman found Mr. Edison and  his family enjoying the wonders produced by a new u,000,000-candlepower  searchlight, capable of throwing a  ray several miles, lhe most powerful  portable searchlight yet invented. It  is very small, and (lie power is supplied by storage batteries.  In the lire at the Edison plant the  yards were thrown in darkness when  the power was shut off. Mr. Edison  conceived the idea of a portable  searchlight, and two days after the  blaze he desigm I a working model,  ft was said at the Edison laboratory  that thc lamp will be very useful in  mine rescue work, at fires, aud on  ships, aeroplanes ahd locomotives. It  can produce light in any volume desired.  "SECURITY  FIRST"  Is  Your   Life   Insured?

U. 10G2  Britain's Big Military Camp  Alciershct, England, is one of the  biggest military camps in the world,  yet sixty-odd years ago it was no  more than a collection of huts.  It wasn't till lSo", indeed, that Al-  dersliot began its existence. At the  time Lord Hardiugc was commander-  in-chief of the army, aud through him  three square miles of Cobham Common were bought for the purpose of  training troops. The first lot of troops  consisted of four officers and 100  men.  From those few huts, which began  tlie great camp, has sprung the pres-.  ent permanent barracks, military hospitals, gymnasiums, and training  centres of all kinds of soldiers. From  185" to 1857 over a million pounds  were spent on improving the place and  making it a suitable headquarters of  the British army.  One of the remarkable results of,  the growth of tha'camip at Aldershot j  has been the increase in the size and  population of the town of that name.  In 1852 the population was just over  800. It is now over 130,000, excluding  soldiers!  For Fighting Submarines  John Gardner, of Fleetwood, Scotland, tlie inventor of the Gardner submarine signalling system, has devised  a method which will make it easy to  sight the periscope of a submarine  from tlie bridge of a steamship. Instead of having to rest his anus on  tlie rail of ihe bridge or on thc gunwale while he scans the horizon  through a telescope, the officer on  watch will now bo able to sit comfortably with tlu: glass supported on a  stand in front of him. By Mr. Gardner's invention the telescope wiil always be approximately parallel with  the surface of the sea, irrespective of  the movements of the ship. This is  achieved by mounting a pedestal securely to the deck, on the pedestal is  the telescope or binoculars on a standard. The seat aud table are maintained horizontal to the sea surface by the  operation of a gyroscope- The plat-,  form, with seat and table, is automatically rotated, slowly from left to right  and Vice versa by the utilization cf the  power for the gyroscope, so that all  the officer has to do is to keep a sharp  lookout within the field covered by the  instrument, which will not be affected  by the movement of the ship.

FAMILY  ES3Sa2EJSE28S3������552E22ES5  Still   a   Land   of  Promise  An English journalist just returned  from Canada writes in the June number of Khaki,  the  soldiers' and sailors' magazine: "Since my return home  I  have  more   than   once  been  asked  whether Canada is still a land of promise  for young men  who  wish  to  try  their fortune there.    To this question  there can be only one answer. It does  uoc need a voyage across the Atlantic  to make ono realize that Canada is a  country with a wonderful future.   Nor,  so far as I can see, are    any superhuman qualities required for success  by the intending immigrant.   He will  have to work hard,  which is exactly  what he would have to do anywhere  else-    But the man who goes out to  Canada   after    the   war   will .find   it  { possible not only to take advantage of  i new opportunities, but also to create  opportunities for himself in a degree  impossible in the old world.   That is,  I   am  sure,   the  main  difference   between Canada and a country like our  own, and that is why I. do not think  that any young,1 energetic man  who  leaves England after the war to seek  his fortune in Canada will ever have  reason to regret his choice."���������London  Referee. ,  NLog'ic of the Irish Mind  A Woman's Comment on Her Son's  ���������   Death  Typical of the   Race  The following story I know lo be  true and it represents fairly the modernity of much of Irish thought.  A young man, sleeping in an outhouse, took some coals from a coke  fire and put them near his cot. In,the  morning he was dead of suffocation.  It fell to a friend of mine'to explain  the cause to the heartbroken mother.  He pointed to a coal lire in a grate  in his house-  "If we stopped up the chimney," he  said, "this room would be filled with  gas.from the coal and with smoke.  If there were noN doors or windows  open the gas would kill us. The  smoke, however, that comes out with  the gas, would make us so uncomfortable that we should open something at  once to let out the smoke, and the  gas would go with it. Now coke gives,  out gas without smoke and so smothered your son without his realizing  what was happening." . -  The mother's answer was Ireland all  over: "And he, poor boy, how should  lio know the craft and badness of the  world?"���������Norman I-Iapgood, in Harper's Weekly.

C,  USE THE SCHOOL HOUSE FOR THE FARMERS' CLUB  The Rural Church and the School Should be Reconstructed with  the Purpose in Wiew of Restoring a Normal Social Life,  Which is now Believed to be Generally Lacking  v    Many changes have, taken place in  Canadian   farming  conditions   during  the past fifty years, and not the* least  - amoug these changes is that in connection with    the social    life in the-|  rural community.    Time    was    when  the farmer's son seemed to be quite  content to remain upon the farm aud  follow in the footsteps of his father,  plowing  and   tilling    the    soil    and  sowing- the" seed in    the  cpringtime,  and gathering the harvest in autumn.  During later years there has been a  decided      townward  ' movement'   of  ,   young people from the country, which  y is still going on in spite of the "Back  to the Land" and "Stay on the Farm"  campaigns  which    in    various  quarters have recently been in evidence.  There have been numerous    reasons  assigned   for    the changej_.no one of  which fully explains the cause of this  townward trend.    Perhaps  the basal  factor in bringing about the change is  an economic one, but it is. quite probable that    it is- something the same  as is    familiarly known    in medical  parlance as a  complication    of    diseases, or, in other words, a combination ; of circumstances and conditions  have led many of our brightest and  best farm boys and girls to the city.  There   are   bright   and  . shining   examples of those who have made good,  but there are  many,others of those  who'go, who often leave better homes  than they find in the city, often perform harder tasks than at home, often endure   hardships,   privation and  financial embarrassment,    all for the  sake   of the    something in  'the city  which seems to be lacking in country  life. It may be that the younger people  in the country place too high a value  on the glitter and glare of city life,  and  do not appreciate nor truly .understand the possibilities'and opportunities    o.    country life.    There  is  abundant beauty and interest in nature surrounding those who dwell in  the country,    but with many, all nature is  so intimately blent with; associations of    toil   that it cannot be"  looked    upon    with,   pleasure.���������������������������-Witli  many, too,    these'   sensibilities have  never .been awakened.-  Trained to do so, the country youth  would look upon nature diiterently.  The place and .time to exert an influence in this direction is in, the  public school when the children are  young. The teaching should.be done,  too, by better- paid, and, consequently  less migratory teachers than we now  have in many of our country schools,  who should be qualified to give the  country, boys and girls a more adequate training for life in the country. The children should be trained  to live a fuller and richer life as well  as taught_to read and write. This is  ���������somentfhg Tor the parents themselves  to'consider and. act upon, and which  should not be left entirely to the  schoolmen.  The opportunities for social recreation and enjoyment in rural parts  are often undeveloped and almost entirely neglected. It should be remembered by the parents that young people are young people wherever they  are found, and those in the country  enjoy a good time as"well as those in  the city. They like to mingle with  their fellows, and opportunity should  be given for them to do so. The  country homes should be thrown open  more frequently -to" young peoples'  gatherings of various kinds. We often hear -the older folks describe the  good old times of long ago when mention is frequently made of the paring, sewing,, huskiug, and quilting  bees, and the barn raisings, spelling  matches, singing schools, etc These  all afforded and were intended to  afford opportunity for social -intercourse. Where are they now? What  have we in their place True, we  have some things now wind', we had  not then, as, for example, the telephone, automobile or rubber tired  buggy. The telephone may account  in part for the smaller number of  Eocial gatherings in some places. In"  some districts the social side of farm  life is not overlooked and there are  var'ous meetings and entertainments  of a social nature, but the good old  time sociability is not general  enough. The homes in many instances  are not homelike and attractive as  they ought to be. It is there that the  training of mankind begins, so let it  not be a darkened, narrow, cheerless  place, that invites narrowness and  discontent in thc individual, but let it  be a place that promotes that which is  highest,  noblest and best in man, a  centre from which light, joy and  happiness radiate. Let the/home be  thrown open- occasionally in order  that the young people may entertain  their friends.  Clean and wholesome sport, indulged in to^-a reasonable extent, is as  good for the country boys and girls  as for those who live in the city.  The writer has heard some strenuous  protests registered when the boy  .wanted io go to the circus or to a  football or baseball . match. Why  should they not go once in a while?  Is 'it not better thatjhey should have  a .lay off now an., then, and as a  result go about their work more  cheerfully on the farm than that they  should be deprived of all forms of  sport until they are old enough to  say for themselves what they shall  do, and then have them leave home to  stay away for good.  Playgrounds and recreation centres,  organized for adults as well as for  children, ���������re appearing everywhere.  It has been found that play is not  only a means of happiness, but is  essential as a means of a strong physical and mental development, and  also serves to break up the routine  of institutional life. Activity along  these lines has been, so far, confined  largely to cities, but one day thesi.  things will receive attention by thos:  who dwell in rural parts.  Places of informal association have  a greater value in socializing than  the appointed meeting places of the  people. In recent social surveys it  has been discovered that the places  of. casual meeting are almost exclusively places of business, such as  stores, barber shops, mills, blacksmith shops, elevators, or places of  necessity as the railway station and  post office. These casual meetings  in the country are, it mustbe admitted, a wholly insufficient socializing  experience. It is bad enough for the  men but it is much worse for the  women. They, in many instances,  are deeply iu the rut of "stay at  home." Replies to an enquiry recently conducted in' the United States  indicate that while some farm women  are cheerful,; happy and contented,  many complain bitterly about the  long hours, isolation and lack of social recreation found on the farm.  Why should the school houses be  used only a few hours each day by  the ".children? ���������There is no reason why  they should not be the farmers club  houses and form the social centres  for the adults. They are built and  paid for and all ready for use. In  places of business one hears nothing  but economic commonplaces and as  the substance of conversation and  discussion is conditional by environment the meeting in the school for  social, literary, and musical purposes  would certainly have an elevating influence upon those participating.  Economic processes have had much  to do in bringing about the condition  of affairs so complained of today.  The tendency of farmers to retire to  the city and the departure of the  young people to seek their fortunes  in the city, have dissolved the rural  household and undermined the traditional country home. So far there  has been little in the way of reconstruction- Without a reconstruction  the rural household cannot bs made  stable. The church and the school  should be reconstructed with the. purpose .in view of restoring a normal  social life, which would mean the  building of-a new country home i:i  which the son would succeed the father, and the daughter be contented  to remain. This must be accompanied by an economic change, and ths'  farmer must learn by better educational methods, by contract with his  successful neighbors, and by demonstrations, how to improve the quality  and quantity of the products from his  farm while maintaining or increasing  the fertility of his soil. Better methods of agriculture and ol' business  co-operation will relieve the industrial and economic elements of the  situation, while an awakened church,  an improved and more o':en used  school, and a richer and .. more inspiring community life would tend to  make social conditions centripetal  rather than ���������. centrifugal, and would  hasten the day when the farmer will  be recognized as of the true aristocracy of the nation.���������F.

Country's Guilt  Prussian Lays Blame for the European War on the Fatherland '  A certain bold Prussian,' name unknown, born, by his own confession,  "on German soil, of-German parents,  German in language and sentiment,  who loves his country better and more  than any other," has recently written  astartling book called " 'J'Accuse von  Einem Deutschen.'' The book has, for  obvious reasons, been'published in  Switzerland. The tilt of two^lan-  guages was ��������� evidently suggested by  Zola's famous accusation which  brought about the public trial, of the  Dreyfus case. The book appeared in  Germany, where it enjoyed a large  secret circulation, in spite of the efforts of the government to confiscate  it. The first authentic account of  "'J'ACcuse'-von Einem Deutschen"  has been written by one Gordon-Smith  'for the New York Tribune. He writes  in part as follows:  The author not only writes as a  German, but'thinks as one. His reasoning is that of a German dialectician. If is written by the author not  against, but for Germany.  He is a German Liberal. What he  says does not differ sensibly from the  lauguage, we are accustomed to hear  from the leading organs of the German Liberal press, the Frankfurter  Zeitung or the Berliner Tageblatt, before the ware. It is difficult to understand their complete "volte-face."  Perhaps'if they were free to write as  they please we might hear a different  language from1 that they now employ.  The author of "J'Accuse" has at any  rate preserved his independence and  remained master of his ideas and of  his-pen.  . He declares���������and proves���������-that the  war was plotted, prepared and declared by the German military party. It  had its precursors and its prophets;  General Bernhardi, Treitschke, Fjo-  benius and other^. He shows tne  methods used 4o work on public opinion, to knead it as one kneads dough.  Mo cites the effort made to obtain  the introduction of international' arbitration and the reduction of armaments by the czar, Nicholas II., and  proves to demonstration that this effort shipwrecked on the unyielding  opposition of Germany and Austria-  This checkmated the loyal co-operation of the other powers, great and  small.'  The writer proves that Great Britain-  was untiring ,in her attemptsto bring  about a simultaneous reduction of  naval construction, but the Berlin cabinet refused to entertain these proposals. Why? Thc author of "J'Accuse" gives the reason without hesitation, "because of all the powers in  European Germany alone was' plotting  and preparing war."  And why did she want war? The  empire was enjoying an unexampled  period of economic progress and prosperity. It was known to be th;  strongest power in Europe, and everybody bowed to its will. It developed  unceasingly its power, its riches, and  its force. No one dared to face it  resolutely. This was seen during the  Morocco crisis and the Balkan wars-  No one dared to attack it. No one had  the courage or even the desire.  But a powerful party in the empire  dreamed of a still greater omnipotence.  and it managed to make a great people, laborious, intelligent and, at the  bottom, peaceful, believe that the war  was a "Befreiungskricg,"..a war of liberation, like that waged a century before against Napoleon. A.war of liberation from what?���������from whom?  This question will never find an answer.  Ho examines, in thc light of; all the  documents published up to the present time, tho -action of Austria, of  Germany, of Russia, of England, and  of France. For him no doubt subsists.  Tiie German chancellory seized upon  the crime of Sarajevo to let loose on  Europe a war already decided on in  principle, the new military law, which  brought to its maximum the armed  force of Germany, having then had its  complete application. He then sums  up the serr.ed arguments contained in  the powerfully written pages of his  book by affirming that "Germany and  Austria are responsible for the European war which they provoked knowingly and with premeditation." * *  The terrible massacre goes on without result, p;iing up daily fresh mountains of corpses, Afresh ruin and devastation- An end must be made to  this. The people must impose peace.  The author, however, demands that  it shall bo a real'peace, and not a  mere armistice. No clause of the  treaty of peace shall constitute an act  of violence, a germ of future conflicts.  The people must unite, but there must  be no annc-.nthu. Standing armies  must be reduced to the numbers necessary to previ-nt and defeat the bellicose enterprises of the peoples who  do not.adhere to this accord. Europe  has need of a long period of security  to undertake the work of binding up  her wounds and extinguishing the hatreds to which the unpardonable aggression of Germany has given rise,  m  I PLANS TO STIMULATE OUR AGRICULTURAL TRADE  The Scheme Involves the Organization of an Intelligence System  for the Assistance of Farmers, and the Co-operation of all  Interests in the Development of the Live Stock Trade  Following the announcement which  appeared in the press that Hon. Martin Burrell had initiated a comprehensive markets propaganda in the  livestock branch of his department, an  explanation respecting the details of  that policy will be of interest. The  scheme involves: "1" The organization of an intelligence system; "2"  The organization of the farmers for  co-operative action in selling; "3" Promotion of sale by grade and payment  according to qualify; and "4" The co-  -operation of all interests in the development of our livestock trade.  The'intelligence system to be organized will provide for statistics of  animal population and of production.  To accomplish this, there will be cooperation with the census branch of  the agricultural departments of the  provincial governments.  The work, will cover information of  breeding and feeding operations, 'supply oL feed, conditions of stock, when  marketing is probable and the.available supplies and where they are. Information regarding the home and  foreign markets will be collected ami  this information will be disseminated  among producers.  Splendid results have already been  achieved in the organization of farmers for co-operative action in selling  in the system already in> force in the  handling of eggs in Prince Edward  Island, and the policy adopted la-it  year in selling wool. The former  scheme will be extended to cover all  provinces while in connection ���������. w'ih  thewwool co-operative selling plan, it  is hoped to devisr improvements  which will'secure for the producers  the commercial advantages of deferred 'sale when the markets warrant  it of the produce. It is now proposed to initiate the co-operative sale of  livestock, lambs, hogs and cattle in  accordance with principles followed  in similar work already undertaken.  It is not intended to involve the department in any commercial obligation, the ���������formers', association" assuming all and complete rcsponsibilty in  the transaction of their own business  and ultimately in the executive administration of their organization.  It is recognized that the sal. of produce on flat rate basis for example in  the\ase of hogs, invariably, inflicts a  penalty on the progressive farmers  and afford a premium for low grade  goods. The department believes it  is possible to favorably influence, buyers and merchants towar,'. the acceptance of standards and the rating of  prices on the basis of market merit.  Such a movement must precede improved quality and increased production and the department will inaugurate a plan for the promotion of sal?  by grade and payment according, to  quality. In-its policy of co-operation  the department will act as a medium  for adjustment of differences between  the producer on the one hand and  packing, transportation; and financial  interests on the other, and an organization for co-operation of these industrial bodies to stimulate our agricultural trade. The market policy of  the livestock branch operated in accordance with these principles will be  under the immediate, direction of H.  S- Arkell, assistant livestock, commissioner. He will be assisted by R. S.  1-Ianier, T. R. Ark-ell and W. A. Brown,  at present heads of the cattle, sheep  and swine and poultry departments.

Farming Should be Made More Attractive and Profitable to Encourage Rural Development  The prediction of a large emigration  to Canada from .Europe when jhe war  is over is an additional reason for taking/stock of agricultural conditions in  the Dominion. That Canada offers  abundant productive employment -if  the necessary machinery can be set in  motion is patent to everybody with  even a slight knowledge of this country's resources. And having" agreed  that there will be a heavy immigration and that we can lind room for all  who come, the present is the time to  consider the question of the class of  immigrants" who are likely to seek  homes in the new world, their ability  financially and by experience to adapt  themselves in a manner that will work  out successfully under the conditions  which they will be called upon to  meet.  Pioneering as a general thing is arduous, the results coming slowly even  for those .-.tarting with a fair amount  of capital and backed by experience,  but nature is generous here, and, provided all other things are equal, the  industrious newcomers should find  themselves making good progress. If  there are conditions, however, which  tend to retard agricultural progress  and help to discourage the struggling  worker, the present is the time to discover such influences and endeavor to  abate their possible effects. We look  upon this country as a land favoring  men of small means, possessing willingness and a capacity for work, and  for such there is room for many hundreds ofthousands. Experience teaches  however, that simply dumping people  on the land is not always sufficient.  This country, like every young community, has its own peculiar problems  to work out for itself, though in the  present instance there are certain aspects of nation--vide significance- For  intance, it is essential that the cost  of production should bear no tindm  handicaps and that whatever lias militated against a more rapid extension  of the cultivated area in the west  should be discovered and the faults  remedied as far as possible. If rural  development has not been sufficiently  rapid in the past, what is to make  farming more attractive and more  profitable in the future? There is no  lack of confidence in lhe country, yet  the results have not met with the expectations of governments and astute  corporations. In these days of inquiries and commissions, could not  sucii a simple and yet vital matter be  made a subject for investigation be-  ���������forc this new immigration rush commences? Almost any man on the  street will tell you what is wrong, and  the next man wiil emphatically advance some entirely different cause���������  but that is gettiug us nowhere.���������Saskatoon Star.

Cereal'or  ������������������-.as a Fodder Crop *  The growing of winter rye has not  as yet received much attention in Saskatchewan. The department of agriculture do not recommend that it be  used to displace any of the crops already grown, but believe that it can,  with advantage, be added to those  crops now having a regular place in  our7 system of farming.7 The advantages which; may be expected to result from the introduction of winter  rye, as an additional grain crop, may  t j briefly summarized as follows:  1. Summerfallow that*-is sown i >  rye in August or early September is  not subject to soil drifting, either in  fall; winter or spring, as it is when a  spring-sown grain, such as wheat, ia  used, because the crop occupies the  land and prevents drifting.  2. Owing to its rapid and rank  growth rye chokes out many weeds,  it is of particular value in combating  wild oats on this account, and also  because it ripens between the middle  of July and the end of the first week  in August, or much earlier than barley.  3. As rye makes its growth early  in May or JUrne^ the crop is well developed before the arrival of droughts,  so that in place of decreasing the yield  these really assist in maturing the  crop. \  4- Rye ripens much earlier than-  wheat and consequently is not subject'  to damage from early frosts.  5. Ripening before other cereals, it  distributes the harvest season,over a  longer period of time and justifies a  farmer in hiring his harvest labor  perhaps_.a month earlier than he  otherwise might, thereby securing it  at a lower rate of wages.  0. A field of winter rye affords fall  pasturage and also the earliest greem  pasturage in this country. If sown  early, the crop may safely be pastured in the fall, and unless.stink weed  or other winter annual weeds, are  present, early spring pasturing will  not cause injury. If cut green it  makes excellent fodder and will generally yield more per acre than any  other hay crop. When grown for this  purpose two crops can usually be cut  in the one season.  Where the crop has not previously  been grown, it is suggested that farmers osw a small acreage and try out  the crop. Seed can be secured from  any western seed house, or from  farmers who have already grown the  crop. Only western grown seed should  be used as imported seed will ofteu  winter kill.  If interested in this subject, write  the department of agriculture, Re-  gina, for free bulletin on winter rye.  A witty Irishman once invited to a  large dinner party iu Dublin in the  hope that he would amuso and divert  his host's geusts. But from the beginning to the end of tho dinner he  preserved a solemn and serious facp.  The host thought this very strange.  "Why, old fellow," he Tcinarked, "I  don't believe the biggest fool in Ireland could make you laugh tonight."  Try," was the rejoinder.  His Ambition  "Has your son any particular ambition?"
