C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1914  $1.00 PER YEAR  IHE DUTY OF THE  SIM-HOIS  feat such scurilnus avarice, itself  terrified yet preying on the terror of  others, tbat the British government  has taken over the, (lour mills of  Britain..  PROGRESS OF  The   Montreal   Journal  of Commerce,, edited, by" Hon! -VV. S    Fielding, addresses the  following  "word  in'season" to the   Canadian   people:  Canadians are showing symptoms  .of an.acute attack of economic   neurasthenia., No one.can accuse us  of'  .being afraid to fight. Show us a German and we will tackle him,without  hesitation.    What vye are fraid'to do  is to go on living.     Instead of   composedly   and   cheerfully   taking up  each day a task-as the 'day appears,  we are trembling in  anticipation  of  unimaginable scarcity and  poverty.  It is not hard times thut we  expect,  we   have'- them   already.    It is not  simply hard times   made harder by  war.    We   could   understand    that  and meet it.'   It is times   so   stark  and inflexible that iron is  in   com-  ��������� '   parison   as  a sponge and the tradi-  ' tional poker pliant as a thread.  More  prosaically, it is something formless,  vast and ghostly, the more dreadful  . because'our reason gives it no shape.  If we were'all to be doomed to death  by slow starvation we should scarcely be more frightened.  We may admit that the war will  disturb trade, remove bread winners  from their homes,   pile   up   private  and public debts, and generallyjmit-  igate   the   prosperity of   the recent  past.    It is well to  be prudent,   to  . eschew luxury, to avoid overproduction, and to provide means for helping the specially unfortunate.    Hav-  ingsaid this we have said it all. The  ' sun   will   shine,    the  harvests will  ripen,   all   the staple commodities  will have to be produced, and  there  will be just as much food and money  in Canada next  Febuary   as   there  was last February.  Fear is one of the greatest forces  which operates in the human breast.  In its two forms of worry and terror  it shapes much of the course of human conduct. Its chosen agent is  the imagination. Its chief activity  is crossing bridges before one comes  to them.  If anything will preoipitate financial disaster it is this mood of dread.  President   Wilson    has    vigorously  pointed this truth out to our neighbors in  the  south.    Our economic  ills, like some of our   physical   ailments,   are   born and incubated in  our thinking.    When   householders  get panic stricken and buy  flour by  the half dozen barrels instead of  by  the bag the price of  flour   must go  up.    The demand exceeds the supply   and   prices   must rise.     What  seems to be a vindication of the forethought is only a consequence of the  folly.    When merchants,   manufacturers, loan companies  and   banks  run for shelter their fight transforms  the wind into a  whirlwind.    When  everybody predicts economic woe  a  false   prudence is developed which  defeats itself.    People  seek   to save  money and get no money to save.  Moreover, the shy ter patriot finds)  his excuse for grinding the  faces of  the poor.  The  coal merchant, with  his bunkers filled at lasfyear's buy-  Let it be repeated* that this is a  time for economy ��������� It is also a time  for heroic Vfl'ort'.to'kVep the business  of the country'going. It'isatjme to  shorten sail, or run the screw at half  speed. ���������It is not a tune to put on a  life preserver and take to the rafts  If the industry and commerce of  Canada are paralyzed this winter it  will De beoaus" the people of Canada  grew hysterical with-fear of the' un-  .known and the unlikely. '  Consider: The dearth is more  likely,to follow the war than to accompany it And then it can be  more advantageously'met when the  stress and frenzy of the fighting is  past. War makes work in many  ways.- Enormous sums of money  are distributed to the producers -of  many articles. Farmers, manufactnr  ers of boots and clothing coal miners and all the middlemen who  handle these things.will be uncommonly busy. The taking of so many  men out of their jobs opens doors to  the unemployed. It is when the  war is closed and the disbanded  troops come home that the trouble  is to be expected. The great panic  of the Napoleonic period was in  1813, when his power had been  broken by the disastrous campaign  in Russia. Let us be cheerful yet  awhile.  King David   decreed   that   those  who stayed bv the stuff should share  in the spoil with those who went out  to battle.  He reeognized  that   there  was   parity   of   merit, even though  there was diversity.    It  is as hard  to wait and endure as it is  to   fling  one's self into the  enemy's  trench.  We send our contingent   across   the  sea    with   perfect   confidence in its  courage.    Our brave boys   will   not  disgrace the families they   have  left  behind    They will find the courage  they need.  Are we who remain behind finding the courage we need? Perhaps it  is a little harder to find. We are not  beckoned on by glory nor keyed to  exaltation. There is no pomp nor  circumstancein the inglorious drudgery of keeping the national shop  open. But that is the patriotic task  of the stay-at-homes Many a man  would be ashamed if his son, rifle in  hand, failed to stand up against a  charge of the foe, yet at the first in  dication of financial danger he himself deserts tbe employees who depend on him for work and wages,  and runs to save his dollars. Strange  that it is so easy to risk one's life,  so bard to risk one's money.  Let us call things by their true  names. It is-nothing else than  chicken hearted ness which ails many  Canadians, more or less prominen  in tbe world of business. They are  cowards and they are in danger of  bringing us all, themselves included,; States  to  needless   penury   and   financitl  Friday  Switzerland is a heavy sufferer.  Every available man is under aniis  and thousands of dependents go hungry.  The Franco-British Atlantic fleet is  strengthened. Five additional war  ships are added to the pack hunting  German cruisers.  England and Russia, according to  E. Block, of Shanghai, a large exporter of Chinese eggs, have placed  orders that will take up all the Chinese eggs on the market.  The Germans on guard at the city  of Louvain fired upon-their advancing  countrymen, whom they mistook for  Belgians. They then burned the city  to cover up their mistake  The Russian army presses forward  and the Germans are compelled to  send reinforcements. The battle now  in progress is the real test .of the  strength of the German defenses.  The British inflict enormous loss on  the enemy in the big battle on the  French from tier, but suffer heavy loss.  The expeditionary force is bearing the  brunt of terrific fighting in an effort to  stop the Germans,and holds its mound  against a superior army.  It is' announced that the British  fleet has sunk two German cruisers  and two German torpedo boat destroyers- off 'Heligoland.": A third  cruiser was set afire and was left  sinking. The report states that no  British ships were lost in the fight  and that the British loss of life was  not heavy.  great battle now raging on the-French  frontier The main German attack is  probably against the La Fere forts,  where the kaiser's best corps is engaged . The allies' movement is believed to be strategic. The British  are .'said to have landed a force of  troops from the overseas dominions.  Another bomb hits Paris. The advance of the French in Alsace.-Lorraine  is a'veritable war of sieges. The defenses of Paris are being strengthened  but the seat of government may be  moved to Bordeaux.  William L.

The British public has been reassured by the statement of Sir John  French that the British army in the  field is in good condition and spirits  and has been rsinforced ready to meet  the enemy again.  Field Marshal French declares that  the strategic position of the allies is  such that a decisive battle would  probably be fatal to the Germans,  while a continuance of resistance by  the allies would lead only to one conclusion.

Wednesday  Petrograd officials frankly admit  disaster to two Russian army corps.  The London Chronicle says the  British losses in France have not  been excessive.  The name of St. Petersburg, which  is German, has been changed by royal  edict to Petrograd.  Paris witnesses a battle of airmen  when two French machines engage  German aviators.     Ten are killed.  Teach recruits to shoot, and do it  quick, says Kitchener. Never mind  whether they know anything about  drill.  The Russian troops capture the  forts at Lemberg and invest Konigs-  berg. The victory against Austria  is complete, says the British press  bureau which officially announces the  siege of the great Teutonic fortress in  east Prussia.  The advance of the German host  causes tho French to move their seat  of government to Bordeaux. The foe  withers under British fire; the cavalry  scores a brilliant victory. The striking power of the enemy begins to suffer from the terrific losses which have  been inllicted.  Thursday  Gen. J of Ire is believed  to   be  plan  ning to meet the Germans in a general  ton. and was killed  An inquest was held in Cn-sion  last Sunday. The verdict of the  jury was that Mr. Reid had fallen  off the eastbound C.P.R. passenger  train and-that he had been run over  by the westbound train two hours  later.. No blame was attached to  anyone.  The late Mr was -Jo years of age  and unmarried. He was a pioneer  of the Kootenay nnd Boundary,  having lived in these districts for  sixteen years. He was well known in  both Kitchener and Movie, having  opened the first general store in the  latter town shortly after his arrival  in that district. Three brothers and  four sisters survive him. ��������� They are  Mrs. Nicholas Flood Davin, of Re-  gtnta; Mrs. Clement Alexander, of  Moose Jaw; Mrs. George MacAffel,  of Vancouver, Mrs. R. Campbell, of  Grand Forks; Ira Reid and Weldon  Neid, 'of-. New Weslininster, "and  Graham Reid, of Moose Jaw. Mrs.  N. F. Davin and Ira Reid arrived in  the city on Monday to attend the  funerai of their brother.  The body of the late Mr. Reid arrived   in   the   city on  Monday for  burial.    The funeral took place at  4  o'clock   in    the   afternoon   on that  day   from    the   residence    of     his  brother in-law,    Robert    Campbell,  under    the   auspices   of    Harmony  Lodge, A F. & A.M., and the Grand  Forks Cnnpany   of   Sharpshooters.  The service at   the house   was   conducted by Rev. M. D. McKee. Then  the   coffin    was   placed   in an open  light wagon, dniped with the Union  Jack, on top of   which   was   plaeed  the   regimental   cap  and side arms  and   beantiful    wreaths    sent     by  friends, and the long funeral procession started for the FYaternal  cemetery,    headed    by   the   city   band,  which played   'The Dead March   in  Saul."     At the grave the final   rites  were conducted by the members   of  Harmony   lodge,   in   regalia, after  which a firing squad of Sharpshooters   discharged   three   volleys over  the grave.  The funeral was very largely attended. During the afternoon the  flags on the government buildings  ond the city hall were lowered to  half mast.  battle under the guns of Paris.  Seventy-two thousand Russian  troops are said to have been shipped  from Arcbangelo to Aberdeen, Scotland, thence transported to Ostend to  aid the allies against the Germans.

GllAND FORKS. BRITISH COLUMBX&  Marketing Wool in the West  Some idea of the work being un  ������������������'dertaken by the Co-operative Orgauiza  'tion Brand., of the Saskatchewan Department of Agriculture may be glean,  en from the fact' that wool has -been  shipped ' by them tc Elsemann.Bros."  Boston, Mass., the lot including more  than 50,000 pounds worth approximate  Jy $9,000. The whole supply marketed  t).rough this agency was purchased at  17% cents per pound, and the producers will receive this price, less the  bare cost of marketing.  This is merely another instance of  the awakening of live stock interest  in the west, and an' example of the  benefit, to be deiived from' the farmer working alonr; co-operative lines.  Last year the small ��������� wool growers  obtained prices ranging from 8 to 10  cents: for their clips; this year the  price is practically doubled. In addition to these small producers the large  flock owners have also availed themselves of the opportunity.  Among the wool growers sending  shipments are Joseph Glenn, ��������� South  Qu'Appelle, j.GOC pounds; from For-  bisher 1,400 pounds, and from Neptune, 1,200 poinds.  Alberta wool growers in considerable numbers are selling their wool  through 'the Saskatchewan : government agency; and in addition, the  clip of a large flock of mohair goats  is being- sold by the branch on behalf of ranc.urs of Delburne, Alberta.  '.Mr. W. G. Mawhinney, of the de:  partnienl of agriculture, -who is" in  charge of the work of shipping, stated  that the wool received was in good  condition, and that for the most part  the sacks were correctly marked on  the outside in accordance with the  instructions issued by the department  New Serum to Kill Out Diphtheria  -. In a special article in one of the  Vienna"' papers Prof. Behring, the  discoverer of the diphtheria specific,-  describes what he hopes to' accomplish \yith his latest serum, 'TA."  He expects to greatly reduce the  number of cases of diphtheria, new  about 100,000 annually in' Germany  alone and estimated at about 3,000,-  000 a year altogether.  In .twenty years, he says, with this  preventative system enforced, there  will be only sporadic cases of genuine diphtheria.  Splinters in the Fingers  When yo'j get a splinter in your finger it is.' sometimes possible to get at  it by pressing the point of a needle under it, but unless you have deft Angers "or a pair of tweezers you may not  be able to pull it out even then. A  new pen nib is a very good substitute  for a pair of" tweezers. Lay the nib  over the splinter so as'to hide it. Then  press down hard enough to separate  the nibs. If you now let the pen down  level with'the splinter and allow tne  nibs to close agaii. they will take hold,  and you can draw the splinter cut.

For the most part, in our cou.ntiy,  they are children of tho city and the  town.  We see the poor as a mass of  shadow, painted in one flat gray wash,  at the remote edge? of'our sunshine.

A man  while out hunting had leaned upon his  shotgun and the weapon had gone off  accidentally, making a large wound in  his head just above the ear. The brain  was laid bare and in bringing the patient to the hospital a handful of the  gray matter leaked out. He was trepanned and finally'recovered, his mental faculties{ apparently as good as  ever."  "Your story is interesting," interrupted an auditor, "but it sounds to  me somewhat inconsistent."  "Why so?" questioned the narrator.  "Because," answered the other doctor. " if he had ever had a handful of  brains he wouldn't have leaned on clie  gun."���������National  Honthlv.

B. C  FRIDAY,   SEPTEMBER  4,   1914  Tur.s is  the time   when everyone  should   take  an   optimistic view of  the future.    It will  cost   no more  than to  be pessimistic  and   downcast,   and   it   will   make life  more  pleasant  for   everybody.    It   is   a  time when business should   be con-  ' ducted on the same principles it was  before the war  commenced.    Sane  economy, in order to provide  funds  for the men -who  are   fighting  our  battles,   is  all right, but hysterical  and unwarranted retrenchmeni  can  lead to but one thing, and   that  is,  a set-back to  tbe community  from  which   it   will   take " decades to recover.    Some men may need   assistance  during the   temporary   shutdown of our industries.    Tho-ie who  are known to be worthy  should  be  given every consideration,    Idle labor should be given    employment  wherever possible.    In   this respect  tbe federal   and  provinc al   government can do a great deal to  restore  confidence in the  future, but by far  the greatest amount of  good  can- be  done by our own citizens of   means.  There are many wealthy men in this  valley, and.   nearly   all   have  some  work   that   might  as  wrll   be  done  now as at some time in   the   futuie.  Let ut* pursue a policy of mutual assistance, and the city will be as vigorous and prosperous  at  the end   of  tbe war as it, is today.   Oh the other  hand,   a   policy   of  hoarding  and  pinching the poor will reduce it to a  hamlet.  . The deciding battle of the  struggle   will   soon be  fought   and  won, and then   the sun  will  shine  on  our   fair   Dominion  with  even  brighter lustre than it did before the  war started.  turned  to   this   city   and   took the  same conveyance to Penticton,  from  which point they will continue their  journey westward.    The most prob-!  able theory advanced  regarding Mr. j  Heinze's visit is[ that he was  sizing'  up his land holdings in   this   prov-,  inee in order to determine .-whether  they are worth the taxes or not.  .Don't  wait  too long  1  have.that  to  Death of John Haverty  The remains of John Ha^ertv,  who died in Prince Rupert last  week, arrived in this city Tuesday,  and the funeral' was held from the  Catholic church Wednesday morning. The remains of Mr. Haverty  were interred in Evergreen cemetery  by the side of his late wife, who  died less thau a year ago.  Mr. Haverty, who was 73 years  of age at the time of his death, was  a pioneer of Grand Forks, coming  here in the early days of the city's  history from YVinnippg. During  the past seven or eight years he has  been engaged in government, work in  the northern part of the province.  He is survived by five children���������  Charles, Frank and Tre.r\p, of this  city; Miss Mary Hav^rtv, of Ta-  coma, and a married daughter in  Winnipeg.  THE HOJR  Iv the atrocities daily reported  from the battlefields are true, it is  quite clear that Gen. Sherman's description of war is lacking in  strength. There must be some  limit to the ferocity of the creatures  in hell.  F. Augustus Heinzf-, the well  known-, copper magnate, accompanied by N.--Rockwood and Judge  Rawlins, of New York, and C. R.  Hamilton, of Rossland, arrived in  the city Wednesday noon. Immediately on their arrival here the  party hoarded Burns & 0' Ray's  auto for Lynch creek, presumably  for the purpose of inspecting some  lands in which Mr. Hein/.e is inter'  fst'-d.

Give them  They wera speaking of force of  habit in the lobby of a hotel the other  night when Charles W. Bryan, brother  of Secretary of State William J. Bryan,  told of an .incident along that line.  One afternoon two pretty girls rambled up to the platform of a country  railroad station. Evidentljv from -their  dress and manner, one of the fairies  was going to tales the train and the  other had come to see her off.  Eventually the train steamed into  the little station, but Ythe traveller  seemed in no great hurry to get  aboard. With watch in hand the conductor waited. Finally, he looked toward tho fair passenger impatiently.  "Madam," said he, with another  glance at his watjh, "if you are going  on this train you must get aboard."  """Just" a minute," returned the passenger, with a flustered expression. I  must give my sister a kiss."

Th?  tunnel, which is fifteen i'eot wide and  eighteen feet high, with a sectional  area of 250 square feet, "lias a ventilating current of 3,530 cubic feet of air  per second, maintained .by two blast  fans at the Brigue end and two exhaust fans at Isel'e. Trains going with  this current encounter less resistance  than in open air up ,to fifteen and a  half miles an hour, but at- higher  speeds or in the- opposite direction ihe  resistance is'*much greater than outside. Coasting by gravity down the  seven per 1,000 maximum gradient, a  train, even though going with the current, cannot exc^td thirty-five miles an  hour on account of the braking by the  air.  er  Love and the Drama  A periodic^ tlovoted to the drama  pleads for plays based on some emotion other than love. The difficulty in  producing such plays is that, every  play must havo a hero, and in making  a hero almost inevitably adopts the  view expressed 2,000 years ago by a  scribbler on one of the dead walls of  Pompeii.

German Horse Extracts Square Rcot  ��������� The^ "thinking horse" of Eberfu-ld,  Germa'uy, has be*,n visited by , tho  ."nature poat "--Maurice 'Maeterlinck,  who says he coulu not- have lo'-n  more astounded if he had heard'the  dead speak. ' "One feels ashameJ.'  he adds, "of th<������ loi.g injiistiee'tow.'.i i!  animals .by human beings. * Every  certainty and all security seemed'  suddenly shattered.  Materlin-.k' first "looked deep l'n  the horse's eyo *.o seek there' so-ne  spark of'his snirit.'��������� and then set trie  horse to various , tasks. The animal's  owner, Heir Krall, first caused t;io  horse to :.,p<ill Maeterlinck's name find  then left the room ^vfiilc Maetor-1  linck himself set the horse to sf.ull  the name of his hotel.  Later, Krall gave the' horse some  square and cube .rr.ots to extract.  vyiien'Mactei-linek was asked to sr-t  the square root, himself, he wrote  on a board the "first figures that came  info his head, since as he admits ho  has no knowledge whatever of this  kind of mathematics. The horse declined the task, lifting his 'forefoot  and keeping it suspended-  After repealed attempts to causa  the horse to fulfill the task, Krall  tried himself and discovered that lie  numbers as written -by Maeterlinck  had no square^root.  Summarizing his experiences, Maeterlinck says he bcileves there must  exist in some horses the same kind  of subconsciousness in certain masters which exist in some human beings. There are men and women of  ordinary or ovei inferior intellect  who have this same extraordinaiy  subconscious gift for , certain problems, while a brilliant methematician  like President Poincaro confesses  total inability lo add up one column  of figures without making a mistake.  Maeterlinck nonce concludes that  horses and probably air other animals have a second sense analogous  to the human second sense, and he  thinks that sooner or later human  beings^ will be forced to recognize iu  this second sens3 the true wond  spirit manifesting itself intermittently* in all corneis of the known  world, "in %the silence of stones and  flowers, insects and stars,", striving  to reveal co. humanity-its own secrtt.

Queer Tticks of Memory  Tn later life Emerson's memorv played him some strange tricks James  Cal'Oi, hi-j biographer, says that he  rr-.ct him one day in the'streets of Boston apparently at a loss for something  and asked him where he was going.  "To dine," said, Emerson, "with an old  and very dear friend. I know where  she lives, but I hope you won't ask me  her name-" Then he went on to describe her as "the mother of the wife  of the young man���������the tall man���������who  speaks so well," and so on until Cabot  guessed to whom he was referring.  This failing led to a pathetic scene at  Longfellow's funeral. After gazing  long at the face of his lifelong friend  as he lay in his coffin Emerson said to  a bystander. "That gentleman was a  sweet, beautiful soul, but I have entirely forgotten -his name."

Scot . Hasc Solved   the  Problem    by  Giving   His  Sons  and  Daughlerc a   Block  of  Shares  in. a  Real Joint. Stock Company.        \  A  cannv  Scot  has solved   the  old  problem o*f how  to keep- the boy on  the farm by organizing his nine sons  and daughters into a corporation and  dividing  the   stock  of   his   1,800-acre  farm anviig them, as though it were  a city    business,  u factory,  store or  mill. ��������� ,      -  The father, John- McCallum. was  elected president of the. farm corporation bv the vote of all the stockholders, the eldest son general manager, and another so.n secretary and  treasurer-  One son was made superintendent  of the hog department, all full blooded ��������� stock. Another- boy was chosen  to care for thc horses. Between two  other sons the cattle and sheep .were  divided. ��������� The girls were placed, in  charge of the. borne. Each child was  made superintendent of some division of the j:arm work and given supreme authority in his or her department.  "I thought the matter over for a  long time," said "he far-seeing Scot,  telling of his plans. "Then 1 finally  drove to town, got a lawyer and told  him my plans. I suggested ��������� we call  tbe farm the Lismore Stock Farm,  from the name of the island in Scotland where I was born. He incorporated the farm with a paid up capital representing my valuation of the  farm and stock. I had a stock book  printed and filed regular articles of incorporation.  "A few days later I called the children into the parlor one morning after breakfast .and told them to be  ready for a surprise- There were five  sons and four daughters. I had capitalized the farm at $100,000 and divided the stock into blocks. I kept  enough for a controlling interest.  Then 1 presented each child with a  block of stock. The plan I had outlined was for them to keep at work,  buy some of my stock each year, so  that by the time 1 die they will have  purchased all of my stock and will  have absoljle. control of the farm.".  The children were enthusiastic over  the idea. It gave them an interest in  the work o- the 1,800 acres that they  had never had before and before tne  lirst week was over each one of the  board of directors was doing his best  to stop the leaks that beset any large  corporation.  The directors hold daily meetings  around the family breakfast tabic,  where the work of the day is apportioned, while j.nnual meetings of the  stockholders are held, as required by  law, and the formalities of business  procedure are duly observed.  What has been the ��������� result of the  experiment?" Of the nine children  eight have stayed by the farm, one  deserting :t to become a lawyer. Nor  have the eight stayed against their  will, or because they did not knew,  by experience, the lure' of the city.  Five of thc children have been away  to college, hav2 completed their  courses and then hurried back home  to stay by tho old farm, ' In which  they are directors. Two of the girls  are now Lt college, drawing dividends from the farm corporation and  planning-to return home the minute  they have won the coveted degree.  In only one important."' particular  does the McCallum corporation differ  from the usual one. The checkbook  is a decided innovation. Mr. McCallum had' a special set of checks printed. Each year a certain percentage  of the surplus is Bet aside. Each"di-  recicr may write a check on this surplus fund endorsed on the check  what the money is for and cash it  without asking the permission of any  other director.  Only once has there been a very  decided difference of opinion among  the directors. Last year there was a  big surplus. The nine children directors proposed to buy an automobile:  the president of the corporation' way  not favorable. The nine outvoted the  one nnd the automobile was duly  bought. Mr. McCallum chuckles over  it now; perhaps he opposed the idea  on purpose just to see what would  happen.   Who knows?  "I'll have to admit I've made it so  all-firod lutsresting for the kids they  haven't, wanted to leave the farm,"  says Mr. McCallum, "except that one  boy���������and he was cut out for a lawyer from the dart, I guess."  150 Chinese Soldiers Are Put to Death  One hundred and fifty of the soldiers of the first division who recent-  RURAL MANHOOD  )y looted the town of Kalgan, 125  miles northwest of Peking and afterwards were induced to disarm by promise of being given their freedom,  have been put to death. The garris.m  at Kalgan composer, of 6,000 soldiers  ffiutinet-d and loctsd and then burned  the city. All persons who resisted  them were killed. The women among  the inhabitants were attacked by the  mutineers and many of them carried  off.  Preferred Death to Being Blind  Fearing that an approaching, operation on his eyos would not save him  from total blindness, Professor Hans  von Peterson, president of the Munich  Society of Artists and one of Germany's most distinguished painters,  committed suicide by shooting himself  through the head  Religious Educctiop. Should be More  Practical, and ' Less Sectarian  and Doctrinal  , Some time ago I made the discovery of an excel'ect little-magazine devoted to rural sof.ial- welfare. This is  called Rural Manhood, and is.the. organ of th.j country wor.k ' of ' the  Y.M.C.A. in'villages, towns and opon  country of North America. Teachers  and preacl-.ors and: other leaders in  country work will find this little  monthly journal decidedly helpful and  stimulating.  In an article on religious teaching  in the country, Prefossor Fiske of  Oberlin calls attention to some of the  strong ,md also some of the weak  points on religious education as commonly found in covntry districts.  "In most country communities the  social structure jj simple- and social  resources meagre. Therefore personality is the main usset, and the determining factor-in our problems. Heie,  more than in thu-' city, ' personality  counts heavily, an religious life and  teaching depends upon it more than  upon metLod or system or organization. This' doubtless accounts for t.ie  fact that some country communities  have had a rema:kable record for developing ' character ��������� and discovering  latent'lead ji-ship. A few great humble  sculs (perhaps but one) have lived  there; and this accounts for it. Perhaps they have . cheerfully broken  most of the laws of pedagogy and  have never dr-samed of it! The sheer  force of character has succeeded in  spite of it.  With these concessions, I shall not  be misjudged if I mention some of tho  faults- often found in country, communities, ���������-������������������'nich seriously hamper a  thoroughly effective development of,religious education.  ���������The "ordinary a^escies for religious  influence are the home, the church,  the minister, the Sunday school, tho  country wo.k of the Y.M.C.A. and tne  public school teacher. The latter has  an inevitable iniluen.ee, though often  unconsciously. The country work secretary is still all too rare. But the  Sunday school is almost universal, nnd  the country home is probably the best  in tlie land, and still most effective for  the training of character. I am of the  opinion that there lemains much more  definite "family religion" in tbe country than in the business ridden, feverish life of the cities; doubtless more  family prayers and "grace before  meat," and definite religious instruction of the old fashioned sort. To  be sure, it is often of such an old fashioned sort that it does the modern  boy little immediate good, but he can  never quite get away from it, and ultimately  it boars  fruit in his life.  I'am making no attack upon sane,  modern evang?lism when I say that  the churches must "quit depending upon periodic indulgence in ultra-emotional revivalism tc maintain their  spiritual life. Self respecting people  shun stimulants; the after effects arc  too awful���������whatever may be the temporary exaltation. The wise minister  is depending less upon the "rouoc-  ments"���������which an over-exhorted congregation soon becomes immune, to���������  and more upon the practical teachwig  of the facts of religion and life, which  feed souls and grow character.  Let me suggest that the aim of religious education in the- countiy should  be less sec tari.-.r. and doctrinal and  more definitely p.-actical. The country people have a genius for hard-  beaded common sense, and you can't  fool them long with any substitute.  There is surely ti.e finest kind of opportunity- for the study of "the soc'al  gospel" -in tho country���������that is, mc  practical teachings of Jesus and the  prophets especially, upon the vitally  important matters of common life, of  ordinary rigMeouuness and the relations of man and man. A number of  fine courses are already outlined and  are readily available. Here is an opportunity not merely for developing  the most exciting sort of class discussions among adult men on topics in  which they are keenly interested,  bringing ,td bear all the pure white  light of Christian teaching where it  will do the most good; but also the  opportunity, to develop speedy results  in the life of the community, as tho  social ethics and thc personal religion  of Jesus, work out in life, and the  church becomes most effectively a  community builder.���������Contributed by  Canadian Welfare League-  '."      COMPLETION   OF  LINE  N.  T.   R.   Pracically     Finished    With  Leonard'.. Retirement  - The retirement cf Major Leonard  from the commissioneishlp of the National Transcontinental Railway  marks the oractical completion of the  line save for some extra ballasting  and filling and the construction of a  few stations to be completed by October 1. It is understood that then  the Grand ��������� Tiunk Pacific would be  called on to exercise its option of  acquiring thc  line by  lease.  As was intimated by tbe company  in the-negotiations for the recent guarantee of bonds f-*r the completion of  the mountain section, it is intended to  take over the lin,?, but an arbitration  will likely be asked to determine ihe  total cost, In respect of which the  rental or Interest will be paid at the  rate of 3 per cen':- for 50 years. Refusal by the Cran-1 Trunk to lease the  line would mean .'Is being taken over  by other interests or by the government itself. The expectation, however, is that the Grand Trunk will implement its contract.  There is a large staff In the Transcontinental commission offices at Ottawa, which will have to be dispensed  with or absorbed !.nto other branches  of the public service, but this will not  occur immediately.

A staLemeut of Canadian trade for  the last fiscal year, has been issued by  the trade and commerce department.  The total trade in merchandise fo:- the  year was $1,073,766,098, an increase of  $26,697,554  over  the  preceding fiscal  year.     Imports   totalled   $618,328,874,  a  decrease of $51,671,315, while    experts totalled v445,437,224, an increase  of $78,368,869.  The net increase in trade for the  year was due to. the big gain in exports of agricultural products, animal produce and manufactured products, particularly during the autumn months. Since ��������� then there has  been a considerable falling off both  in imports and exports. The total exports of agricultural products for ti e  year was $198,220,029, an increase  of $48,074,468, or nearly thirty per  cent. Exports of animal produce totalled .$53,349,119, an increase of $8,-  564,526, and exports of manufactures  totalled $57,4-13,452, an increase of  $13,750,644.  ... Trade with the United Kingdom  showed a net increase of $37,634,098.'  Trade with the United States showed  a net increase .of nearly there millions. With the British West Indies,  including Bermuda, despite _the recent  reciprocal trade* agreement, there was  a net falling off in trade of $1,620,283.  From nearly every oommunity imports  decreased, T/hile "to every country except the Argentine .Republic expoits  increased. From the United Kingdom  Canada took last year imports valuc-d  at $131,942,769, or $6,706,666 less than  the preceding year..

NATURALIZATION   EXPLAINED  Government Hss Issued Circular to  Correct Misunderstandings  As considerable misunderstandings  have arisen as to tho new Naturalization act, 'he state department is issuing a .-special -drcul; r on the subject  directing attention to the fact that  the new law is not now in effect, but  will be only on January 1 next, while  with respect to the people living there  at present and up to the first of tho  year the old law will apply for three  years yet.  Heretofore naturalization was granted in court by judges. Under the new  law the judges will certify as to tha  evidei.ee of qualifications while the  certificate will be issued by the secretary of state.  Prepare   for   Pannma   Trade  The government is getting ready for  the anticipated trade development between  western  ports  and  Europe  by  way of the- Panama canal*  Interior elevators have been established at Fort William, Moose Jaw,  Saskatoon .in J Calgary and the site  has just been selected for a terminal  elevator on the government clock at  Vancouver, which will cost about a  million dollars.  Equality of Water Flow Dependent on  Fores: Cover  It has been urged that in thc imprests of navigation the Dominion gov-;  eminent should purchase such denuded forest land iu Lie eastern provinces  as might be nacessary to reforest in  order' to prevent floods and the filling  up of streams with sediment, in this  connection lhe report on the Trent  Watershed Survey, recently published by the commission of conservation,  is of considerable interest. In -;liis region of Ontario, as a result of Jives,  150,000 acres are practically a desr-rt  p.nd the report ur%es a policy of forest  .conservation under Dominion,'' provincial or municipal control, in order to  preserve the usefulness of the Tivr.t  Valley canal, in which over $10,000,000  arc Invested. There are many such  barren area-; in the eastern provinces,  which with the assistance of the Dominion government might be made to  produce valuable forest .crops.  In Canada disastrous floods and  low water stages have been largely  prevented by the timely, action of th-i  Dominion government in setting aside  as forest reserves the wooded slopes  where.the great river's of the interior  of the Dominion have their origin. On  the east slope of the Rocky Mountains  over 20,8,96 square" miles of non-agricultural land have been thus reserved,  for the double purpose of regulating  the run-off aud of providing a perpetual supply of timber to meet the  ever increasing. r;ecds of the prair'e  settlers. In the railway belt "in B.-it-  ish Columbia smaller -reserves .have  also been set aside, chiefly for the purpose of maintain:'.ig a steady How in  the streams on wlich the fruit-growing  industry is absolutely dependent.  After a struggle which lasted for<  ever ten years, the friends of conservation in the United States succeeded in  passing the Weeks Bill on March ],  1911, for the acquisition of lands for  the purpose of-conserving the navigability of navigable rivers, by maintaining on these acquired watersheds a  perpetual growth of 'forest which  would preserve the regularity of the  stream flow, tlms aiding navigation  and water power development, and  would also prevent soil erooion and  the resultant film,; up of the streams  with sediment.  The bill was fought bitterly by interests, who attempted to prove that  forests do not restrain floods or regulate stream flow, but their arguments  were totally disproved in the house of  representatives.  It was then sought to prove the  .provision for the purchase of stale or  private lands by the federal government to bo unconstitutional, but the  committee en the judiciary, after thorough considoraioi*. affirmed that 'Congress had the constitutional pow*?r bo  acquire lands nnd forest reserves in a  state by purchas *, condemnation or  otherwise, as an aid to navigaton, ii it  be made to appear to congress that  such reserves materially or substantially aid navigati jh ' That forest reserves had this influence was 'made  to appear' -.o Congress, the Weeks .Bill  was passed.am", since then th^re has  been purchased or approved for par-  chase over 65.90u acres of denuded  timberlanclF. in [".:���������-��������� Appalachian Mountains, which will be, when necessarj,  artificially uforestci in order to bring  under control the excessive floods  which have caused such damage along  the Ohio and other rivers having their  source   in   these   mountains-  EXHIBITS   OF  THE   NATURAL   RE-  SOURCES'OF CANADA WILL. BE  VERY ATTRACTIVE  FOREIGN     SERVICE     NEEDS    MEN  Sir George Foster Considering Raising  Status   of   Canada's   Trade  Comivissioncrship  For some Unit Sir George ��������� Foster  has had andcr consideration the question of railing Uu'status of Canada's  trade commissirrc-rships in other  countries. Ca.i.ul;-. has, of course, no.  consular service of her own, hot. in  common with ot'.icv dominions beyond  the seas, util'zes the services "A British consuls in. i'an.ign countries. However, where there ;'.re trade commissioners, these to some extent fulfil the  functions of cou-ulr., and with the  growth of Canada's importance abroad,  it is becoming the more necessary  to appoint ,.s commissioners men of  the very highest qualifications.  Sir Geo.ge Fotier therefore, proposes to appoint to these positions as  vice-counsu.'s the best available university men, but before going to their  respective posts they will undergo a  special training in the department of  trade and commerce at Ottawa, .vid  will be given opportunities to study  the needs and nec.ssities as v.-ell -is  the industrial co.'ditions of Canada  from coast to coast.  The    Canadian    Building    Covers an  Area of About 700,000 Square  Feet,  and is.One of the Largest Buildings  of the  Exposition.  Col- William Hutchinson, exhibition  commissioner ior Canada, was interviewed recently in Vancouver while  on a trip on business connected with  the Canada building at the Panama  Pacific exposition. The building will  be completed in about a month, Col.  Hutchinson said- Of course this does  not mean tlie fancy work of the interior, nor the placing of the many  displays of the natural resources of  the Dominion. Becaure the exhibition  city is on this coast, British Columbia products will have the largest  share of tbe space.  The Canada building covers an  area of about 700,000 square feet. It  is the largest building with the exception of the buildings, known as  the exposition palaces. The commissioner has a staff of eight exparts at"  work. They have been connected  with his department for years and  arc putting into the San Francisco  building their experiences at many of  the world's biggest exhibitions.  "Our idea, is to appeal principally  to the man who may become a settler  of Canada," said the commissioner.^  '"The exhibits in the building will be"  only of the natural resources of this  country. . These will be displayed in  the most attractive manner possible.  The exhibition''will formally open on  February 20, but the Canada building Avill be ready for inspection before that time- In fact,' our department has established a reputation at  other exhibitions of getting off the  ground with our work completed,  before any of the ethers are through.  This gives an opportunity of opening  first and giving the early arrivals  who may visit th'j grounds some days  before the formal opening, an opportunity of studying what Canadaa can  show.".  Particular pains are being taken  with tbe fruit exhibit, the commissioner said. Many- of the horticultural products will be shown-on the  limb. .There will be exhibits In bottles, and the fresh articles as well. A  splendid and attractive idea which  will' be worked ou*- with several six  by twelve foot screens, made with a .  blue canvas sky, natural grass and  trees, houses, etc., which will vividly  convey ideas of orchard and farm  scenes of the Dominion.  The horticultural exhibition will  occupy about 800 square feet and  Col. Hutchinson expresses the belief  it will be second to none. Plans are  Tor a large mineral display and each  sample will Be properly labelled- Much  of the mineral will be from this province. The timber resources of Canada will be shown with polished  panels two by four feet, ' so as to  give the visitor an idea of the grain  in the wood. A good deal of attention also will be paid to the fishing  resources.

Pearls of Great  Price  There has lately been exhibited at a  court jeweller's in Bond street a striking collection of p -arls. One magnific-  ieiit rope is valued at no less than  ������60,000; while for a single pear-  shaped drop pearl, perfectly symmetrical, ������14,000 is asked. But. probably  the most exquisi.e article in the collection is a single necklet of gems of  extraordinary hue, the matching and  gradation being superb. Tho cost of  ihis article 1.  ������11^,000.  But the owners warn a would-bo  purchaser that if one of tho stones  were lost it would be impossible to  replace it with an exact duplicate.  Black and pink pearls also found a  place in the exhiticion; whilst a passing reference must be made to a pair  of button-shaped ear-rings valued at  ������8,000.  One of the representatives of the  firm gives a word of advice upon the  preservation and treatment of pearls.  Upon no account, he said, should  they be locked up in a safe or other  dark place for lengthy periods, since  such treatment soon causes them to  lose their "life" and become dull-  If their fair owners find that Tor  pome reason or other they cannot  wear them outside their garments  they should make a point of wearing  th'-m underneath choir dress next to  the skin. Constant contact with t'e  human skin gives to the stones light,  hi<,tre, glo.s3 and sheen. Tho best possible way to keep pearls in a perfect  state of l reservation as well ns to  prolong their life, is to wear thorn always, both day and night-  It has been estimated that dun -g  tho i)r.:sa-:t year 1,2*18.000 factory  hands in Russia have already participated in strikes, \u addition to 215,-  000 others who n,-e employed In es-  labUslini nits ;i-)t in-tVr the fae'r-ry  act-  Farmers' Co-operative Societies  Seventy-two farmers' co-operative  oi-gauiaztioiis have be." organized in  Saskatchewan to: the purchase of  farm supplies and the marketing of  farm produce.
