Martin Bur-  rell, minister of agriculture, to raise  foodstuffs.    The minister says:  "Approximately twenty million  men have been mobilized in Europn.  A large proportion of these have  been withdrawn from the farms.  Even in neutral countries, large  numbers of food producers have  been called from the land to be  ready for engagements.  "It is difficult for us to realize what  will be the effect on'food production  through the withdrawal   of   several  million men from all tbe great agricultural countries of Europe.    The  millions cease to be producers, they  have-become consumers; worse still,'-  they have become destroyers of food,  v "The area   to be sown   to   wheat  and rye in Europe this fall   wiil   be  seriously reduced.    Should the war  continue into the  summer  of  next  year the food , production in Europe  cannot   approach   that   of   normal  years.

(Yesterday's war summary on page 4)  Salvatore Bonnacio and John  Morrell have-made a rich strike of  ore in their Guiditto claim, situate  on Welcher mountain, on the north  fork of Kettle river, some forty  miles from Grand Forks. Samples  forwarded to \V. H. Stowell it Co.,  Spokane, have given assay returns  of 15.20 oz in gold, or a value of  8314.21 per ton. The lead from  which the sample was taken is  stated to be from 20 to 30 inches in  width at the present time and to extend clear across tbe river. Messrs.  Bonnaccio and Morrell visited the  claim this week for the purpose of  making a preliminary survey for a  ������agon road from tbe workings to the  government road, and also to connect with the North Fork branch  of the Kettle Valley railway.

FLYING TOO  HIGH  to  Almira's   Social   Ambitions    Soar  Perilious   Heights  Mrs. Riverside and Mrs. Morning-  side were sisters. Both had married  well, butwhen it came to the supreme  rustle in New York Mr. Riverside had  outstripped his brother-in-law. Social  lines diverged a trifle with the Increase of the Riverside fortune. When  Mrs. Riverside decided to assail the  social barriers that rose between her  and the blue book the Riviera was decided on as the spot from which to  make the assault. Before sailing she  sent out cards for her final reception,  and in thc corner was engraved the  customary "P.P.C." (pour prendre  conge). Ono was sent to' tho less  prosperous rister, Mrs. Morningside.  It was in the morning mail and was  opened at tho Morningsides' breakfast  table.  "What do you think of this, Josiah?"  asked the volumcinous partner of his  joys, his sorrows and his breakfasts.  "Seems to me Almira is making a social blunder. Here she has printed on  her cards 'P.P.C,and that, it seems  to me, is carrying her family, pretensions a little too far."   .  "Ahem," grunted Josiah, glancing  up from his paper. "What's this P.P.G.  business mean?   Too much for me."  "Why: President Poik's cousin, of  course. It's all well enough to talk  about our relationship to that great  man, but it's a' social blunder -for '-Almira-to have the fact blazoned on her  reception cauls. She's flying too high,  and this will be her fall, I'm afraid,  poor girl!"���������New York Times.     ' .

Apples,  pears, gooseberries, and plums . appear to have been grown in England  for a very long time, but cultivated  raspberries did not arrive until the  . sixteenth century.  Rhubarb was introduced from Russia in 1573, but did not become popular until the nineteenth century. It  is recorded that a Deptford gardener  in 1810 sent a few sticks to the London market, but was unable to find a  customer.  Cherries were brought over by the  Romans, but ceased to be cultivated  until one of Henry VIII.'s gardeners  reintroduced them.  ���������'How many fish have you caught,  uncle?" asked the passerby.  .

A London visitor as the Lambs club  recounted a new version of the notable enmity which followed the friendship that had existed between Whistler and.Wilde. The latter one day  asked the artist's opinion upon a  poem which he had written, presenting a copy to be read. Whistler read  it and was handing it back without  comment. ,  "Well," queried Wilde, "do you perceive any worth?"  "It's worth its weight in gold," replied Whistler.  The poem was written on the very  thinnest tissue paper,   weighing prac  tically nothing.    '  Scrubwomen  The appearance of -charwomen on  their knees scrubbing an office floor,  a public corridor, or the lobby of a  theatre is not one which inspires respect in the ordinary passerby. The  work of public cleaning bears,' in addition to the ancient stigma attached  to menial work, the ignominy of being done in public places. The dishevelled working clothes and the humble  posture' of the scrubbers seem to deprive them of any measure of human  dignity.   '������������������'��������� '������������������'"  In the majority of public buildings  the scrubbing, is done in tlie most  primitive fashion, for as long as the  women's labor is as cheap as it is.  there is little incentive "for employers  to adopt improved' methods of work.  There is also a general, belief that  women do this sort of work, more  thoroughly then men���������-a fact which  has served to prolong their tenure.  Moreover, die scrubbing machines  which have been tried so far have not  been satisfactory. The superintendent  of one building experimented with one  in the large ground floor thoroughfare,  but gave it up and returned to primi;  tive hand-and-knee scrubbers;' ���������  The da'ngers to health from constantly breathing in the germ-laden  dust of great assemblage places need  scarcely be mentioned. The public  cleaning woman is the first and chief  victim of.the disgusting habit of spitting. Decent women were compelled to  scrub floors unspeakably defiled by-  spitting, a condition as dangerous as  it was revolting. One woman was said  to have acquired . tuberculosis in her  finger from scrubbing the floor of an  orchestra: It" is true that not all:  cleaning jots were equally bad, but  the worst' involved hardships which j  were an off ease against humanity and  bore no.-. relation to the numbers of  women engaged.  But tlie ability to make the best of  conditions, which we can't remedy belongs to these" women as well as to  others more fortunate than they. Hear  Mrs. Clinton, as she walks to the  theatre at 5 o'clock on a snowy winter afternoon "I think I'm going to  be able to keep this job," she says,  "because six woniei have tried it before me anil all of them gave it up.  But" I'm a steady worker, and that's  what people want in New York."���������  Katherine Anthony in The Survey.  Amount   of  Food  Both age and se:: have an important bearing upon tho daily quantity  of food which each individual requires. Meii, being as a rule larger  than women, generally require about  one-tenth more food than their wives  and sisters, but there are many exceptions to this rule. As the growing  bodies of children must be provided  with material for the building up of  new tissue,'every healthy child should  consume more food in proportion to  work ancl weight than an adult, and  almost every close observer has seen  growing boy:; who eat very'' great  quantities o" meat, bread, butter and  vegetables with apparent benefit  when taking a large amount of exercise every day. Infants under nine  months old cannot digest starchy  food, consequently none should be  given them. The proper food for them  is milk. T.ie brain worker's food  ought to be provided in smaller bulk,  in more easily, digested form, and in  more concentrated shape, than that of  the man who works with his hands  in the open air, ancl whose digestion  is uually more active than that of  the brain Worker.  During one of the battles in the  Spanish-American war an officer was  wounded in tho th igh, and for four or  five days surgeons were engaged attempting to discover the ball. Their  sounding 'gave him excruciating pain.  On the fifth day he could bear it no  longer, and cried to the surgeons,  "Gentlemen, in heaven's name, what  are you about?" >  ' "We are looking for the bullet."  "Well,1 why didn't you say so at  first?   It is in my waistcoat pocket.**  aking Powder Tests?.  ("THE SPICE MILL'-' (N.Y.),  SEPTEMBER, 1913.)

"What  do I think of Sir Wilfrid Lawson',3  wine ancl spirits bill?" cried indignant  Sir John. *'I don't think of it at all.  That's his affair, not yours or mine.

A capital story which Lord Minto  used to delight in telling was of an  experience he had while he was viceroy of India. One morning in Simla  he wanted to speak to the commander-in-chief of tlie Indian army before  the latter started work for the day,  so he set off unattended to pay an  early call. When he arrived at the  commander-in-chief's official residence he found his way barred by a  sentry, who apparently did not recognize the visitor.  Lord Minto explained that lie  wanted to see the commander in- chief,  but the sentry declined to allow him  to pass.  "But I am the Viceroy," protested  his lordship.  The sentry looked at him witli a  pitying smile. ,. *  "Ah," he said thoughtfully, "we goto  all sorts 'ere. Last week we 'ad a  cove that kidded "isself 'e was Queen  Vicoriar's grandfather.

A commercial traveller driving from  town to town through the pine woods  of Florida saw a drove of emaciated  razor-back hogs rashly wildly from  tree to tree. He halted at the palings  of a "Cracker's'' home and asked a  weman in a sunbonnet what was the  matter with the swine.  "Well, you see," the woman explained, "my old man is deaf and  dumb, and when he wanted to call the  hogs lie learned them to come when  lie tapped on one of the trees. It  worked all right when they first got  learned, but now them woodpeckers is  makin' the poor things run their  legs off."  "What makes you think it's a case  of puppy love?"

Mrs. OUve Thovn Miller, who has  made a careful study of the domestic  life of birds, says that .-narriaga  among them is noted for its stability  aud joyousness, and that the feathered  Darby and Joan will .make sacrifices  to maintain the family life. She cites  the case of a female bird which return^  ed to its mate, preferring life behind  bars with a loved one to lonely freedom in the woods.  "I am sorry to say. however," says  Mrs. Miller, "that in spite of this usually  happy  state  of domestic  affairs  there are occasional unmistakable in  stances of bird divorce^  Sometimes it  is the husband who trie's of his spouse,  and drives her away to make icom fo-  a  new   bride.    Again   it  is  the  wife,  who, perhaps, makes up her mind that  the father cf the  family is  not providing properly for its wants, and rejects him on that score.    In one case  of the kind which i have watched I am  sure .this  was the  trouble.  Tlie  husband was a cripple, from an injury to  his leg; and was certainly rather help-!  less.

As a feature it  was worth while.  Bach player was required to carry  an egg in one hand and play ball with  the other. Runs and hits were counted as usual, but in addition, any player who broke his egg gave a run to  the opposing team.  The linal :core was 4 to 2 (actual),  but the total score was 15 to 11. The  game was a live inning contest. Each  guardian of the initial sack broke  three eggs, one catcher broke three  eggs and the other, one. The pitchers  led in the number of broken eggs.

FLOUR MILLS  240^ GRAIN EXCHANGE,  WINNIPEG \  Disasters Due to Fog  It may be said that no regulations  and no precautions can avail against  fog.   That is too hasty and To--sweep-  ing  a   conclusion.     Fogs,   of   course,  cannot bo prevented;     but    disaster  need not follow upon fog. It is commonly due either   to   ships persisting  in moving-during-fog  or    to   .some  [ avoidable blunder in navigation. The  blunder in navigation is  usually the  result  not of lack of skill but.of a  defect   of  temper. * There   are    sea-  hogs as well as road-hogs, and there  are  obstinate  captains  who  will imperil their ships rather" than  deflect  from their course.   This sort of.thing  can be corrected by setting up a better tradition,    and  if necessary    by  punishing sternly wherever it can be  proved;    The larger question remains  whether ships ought to    proceed    in  fog.    That must always    be a very  risky business along the great water-  ways of the world like the  Channel  or along a river.   There is no rule to  guide   captains.    On.    the   one  hand  their owners want   them    to make a  quick passage:   on    the  other  hand,  they have no assurance that if they  stop other ships will do likewise. Under    such    circumstances    there    is  strong  temptation  to  push  on,    and  that,  with  other fillips  moving,  may  be    actually    safer    than    stopping.  Clearly,  if regulation    is  practicable  this is a case for international regulation.���������7 ondon     Daily     News    and  Leaner. v  Pluck  in Defeat  A recent  Socialist  candidate  of  his  defeat':  "At any rate, we put up, we Socialists, a brave if hopeless fight.

Small PHI, Small Dose, Small Price,  Genuine must bear Signature  Fog Gun Started by Wireless  A system of wireless control that is  now being applied successfully at several points in Scotland seems to have  solved the problem of distant control  of acetylene fog guns located at points  difficult to access, and provides a  means by which a number of such installations may be operated from one  wireless station without the necessity  for visiting the different signals, except for making repairs and replenishing the supply of gas. The gun  automatically feeds and fires itself at  regular intervals until stopped or until  the supply of acetylene runs out, and  the wireless control simply provides  a means of starting it when there is  a fog and stepping it when the fog  clears, without going near the signal.  Furthermore, the wireless apparatus  is so arranged and tuned that it is not  interfered with by the more powerful  waves that may be sent out by passing  ships or by other wireless stations.  Portraits  and'Piecework  A merchant prince of Manchester  recently engaged a rising young  painter for tha purpose of having his  own portrait in oils conveyed to posterity.   Tho twrms were'arranged.  "How long do you think it will  take?" asked the model.  "Perhaps fifteen days." was the reply.  Sittings began and the artist entered so heartily into his work that in  eleven, day3 the portrait was done.  "Why," asked this Croesus of Cottonopolis, when the fact was announced to him, "do you intend suppressing  four days' work?"  "It does net matter at all; the portrait is finished,' answered the painter.  , "Well, sir, this is not business; we  said a hundred guineas and fifteen  days' work. I am quite ready to stand  the price, but you ought not to spend  an hour less upon the work than we  agreed for."  There was no use arguing with such  a man. The painted took his brush  again and spent four sittings more in  lengthening, little by little, in the portrait, the ears of his patron.���������Pearson's Weekly.

The minimum cost is  estimated by economists at $2,000,-  000,000. The figures given by  military writers coincide and agree  that about 8,500,000 men are under  arms for land warfare. To these  must be added 340,000 seamen.  If the Balkan war can be taken as  an example, the cost  of each   man  mobilized amounts to $2.50   a day.  This gives about $22,100,000  daily,  or.$663,000,000 monthly.   This fig  ure is, however, considerably short  of   the   mark,   because.it does not  take into account   the maintenance  of the armies and fleets.    The  German reichstag authorized extraordinary expenditure to the   extent   of  $1,250,000,000, to be obtained by a  loan, and a further sum of $70,000,-  000, to be drawn on  the   gold and  silvar reserve of the nation.  It is now well known that the tax  of 5 per cent on the stock of notes  issued by the Reichbank over and  above its reserve in metal has been  suppressed The German government will therefore secure the loan  required by an issue of bank notes  uncovered by a reserve of gold and  silver. This issue reminds one of  the assignats of the first French revolution, of which a few samples are  kept as curious heirlooms in French  families.  -  It is said in Paris that the Austrian ,army on a war footing costs  the empire $4,000,000 a day, but  the Austrian treasury was emptied  by the mobilization during the Bal-,.  kan wars, whieh drained the financial resources of the empire for more  than a year, and it is hard to see  where the Austrian monarchy can  find the $120,000,000 required to  keep the imperial and royal armies  and navy during the great war just  opening.  The above figures are probably far  short of reality, and it is therefore  difficult to see how the Central  European empires can support a  long and arduous war from the  financial   and   economic   point   of  view.

They are  going to need such things as clothing,  fuel, etc., too, aud a surprising lot of  them will go on buying luxuries as  well.  The bottom hasn't fallen out of  trade. On the contrary a new bottom has been put in. Live advertisers are going after the new business,  new markets, new fields made possible  by this great and unfortunate war.  Just as modern methods of warfare  will add new efllcieucy, new features  to this war, so modern methods of  sellidg���������through real advertising and  merchandising���������will add new etrio  iency to the commercial effort sec in  motion by the war.  American manufacturers  have  His  covered that owing to the shutting oft"  of German exportation they   have   a  brand new market at their doors for  such commodities as chemicals, drugs,  medicines, copper and manufactures,  cotton goods, earthen stone ancl china-  ware, , glass and glassware, malt  liquors, spirits, wines, silk manufactures, fruit and nuts, gloves* em  broidery, hats, steel and iron manu  factu res, toys. etc.  The American advertisers are readjusting themselves with wonderful  rapidity and are redoubling their ef-  forts to secure new trade heretofore  denied them.

Some further interesting-.facls regarding Mexican insects are related in  The National Geographic Magazine.  It. apears that many of the Indian  colors are mp.de from Mexican insects,  while one of the most remarkable  of the many curious foods eaten by  the natives is made from the eggs of  a species of marsh fly. This fly deposits its eggs in incredible quantities  upon flags and rushes. The eggs are  then gathered and made intc cakes  which are sold in the markets. These  little cakes are somewhat like brickbats, and the Indians enjoy, a meal  of them with as good a stomach as  white people enjoy cheese. The eggs  resemble this fine fish roe, and when  mixed with corn meal and fowl eggs  form a stap.'e article of diet, particularly during Lent.  The insects themselves, which are  about the size of a housefly, are  captured, poinded into a paste, boiled in corn husks, and in this form are  eaten.  Another remarkable insect found  in Mexico is the Elater lire-fly, which  the Indians use as miniature torches.  The men fasten them to their ankles  in going through ths forest, and the  women wear them in their hair_ under  a thin gauze veil.  Tiny little cages are constructed in  which three or four are kept fori  lightning purposes.. The insects congregate by *lho .thousands in many  forest trees, and, as if by preconcerted agreement, simultaneously Hash  their lights, then darken them and  flash  them : gain.

BRITISH    ADMIRALTY    HAS  CREATED  A   ROYAL   NAVY  AIR SERVICE  The Introduction of the Aerial, Arm  In the British Empire's Fighting  Forces is Considered to be a Preface to the History of War in the  Air.  The British Admiralty has just announced the creation of a royal naval  air service with its own ranks and  uniform.  The promulgation of the; regulations marks a distinct step in the  introduction of the aerial arm into  the empire's lighting forces; in fact.  . it is a preface to the.history of war  in the air.  Up to the present date air work  In thc nav/ has been of too recent  birth to admit of tlie application of  iirm. lines of organization. The  present regulations show that it is  considered that the time has now  arrived when this . section should  begin a ���������'distinct and individual life of  its own. Wc have therefore in these  regulations the formation of a royal  naval air service, which is to be constituted as.a distinc'; part of the military, or lighting branch of the royal  navy.  'The scheme is based on the principle that ali classes of officers and  men in thij naval air service shall  enjoy equal facilities in regard to  military command, so that officers  and meu of Ihe military and the non-  military brarches of the royal navy  officers and men o'l the royal marines, of the royal naval reserve  forces, those transferred from the  army, and those entered direct from  civil life shall all take rank and  precedence according to , their naval  air service guide iwhile performing air  service duties.      \  It has therefore been decided ii?.  the first inst?.nce to frame an arbitrary seniority list as regards the  officers aud m fin now engaged on this  work; and , in future that all .officers  and men will take position on the  list from the date of their being  graded. At the same time the age  and previous service of candidates  will be adjusted to ensure that all  shall begin* as nearly equal as is  practicable.  ��������� The pay is on approximately the  same rates a: those for submarine  service, but slightly higher on the  whole.  The unifori >. .will be the same as  that worn by executive officers in the  royal navy. A small badge in the  shape of an eagle will be worn above  the stripes on the left sleeve. r.'.'he uniform will b? very similar, but the  anchor (the emlleni of the sea), will  be generally i-eplaced by .the eagle,  which has bjcn established as the emblem of the air. ' ���������  An important feature * of the new  regulations is that civilians will he  permitted ;Lo enter direct into the air  service, in which they will hold a  position of entire equality with the  other officers.  NO RESTRICT.ONS ON U.S..CATTLE  New Frtnch Law Taxes Foreigners  A bitter cry is going up from foreigners living in France owing to the  new tax of 5 per cent, ou all s^urities  which they possess cither in France or  abroad.     ���������"'-.'.,-.'  A United States financier who is  building a notable house in Par's declares that he will stop the cons'-iuc-  tiou of his residence add will live  in a hotel. Others say they intend to  move to some country where no such  tax is imposed. Yet others declare  that they- will return to their old  homes.  If tax free Monaco were seeking  immigrants the present momenr.  would accord a great opportunity for  gaining great additions to its population. A partner in one of the Paris  banks says:  "The law has caused consternation  among foreign residents who do not  relish the idea of losing 5 per cent, of  their incomes. It has even caused  consternation to, bankers, as the law  makes them collectors of the tax,  Avhich is not in our line of business.  We are blamed by our excited clients  for collecting the tax, and at tlie same  time we see them removing their securities to foreign banks, wliile we  are compelled to employ more clerks  to explain and enforce the new law."  The law is" designed to lighten the  direct taxes upon the farmers, which  are pressing heavily upon prices of  products, ancl raising the cost of living.  Ontario Stock Show Promoters Have  Made Request to Government  for Changed Regulations  That,the lestrictions placed, by or-  der-in-council upon United States cattle showing at-'Canadian exhibitions  should be removed is the substance of  representations made to the��������� agricultural department by live stock show  promoters of Ontario. The restrictions  referred to compels United States cattle before being exhibited in Canada,  to have been successfully tested  against, tuberculosis for a peiiod of  six months. It is claimed that this  rule hurts the Canadian shows without compensating benefit. The American exhibitois are. not particularly desirous of coming any way, and the  restriction tends to keep them out  when they are wanted. There is a ���������.similar' rule on the United States side  and the government took .action at  the instance of the Canadian breeders.  Raising Crops by Radium  The effect of radium on plant  grewth has, it is said, been demonstrated by experiments carried out in  England.  ��������� It is claimed that many of the results are so promising that it is possible that the use of radium for crops  may become one of its most important applications in the future. It is  said that iadium has an adverse effect on the undesirable soil organisms, leaving the useful ones freer to  stimulate growth..,  Best 'results', are; obtained with the  use of about; one-seven-hundredth  part of a grein of radium to one ton  of soil. f The residues left behind after  radium chas oeen extracted from minerals usually contain a minute quan  tity of radium.  When these residues, which are of  comparatively ."ittle value, are; mixed  in the soil, wheat and barley,grow  with great rapidity and the leaves are  usually of a darker color.  The most decisive results so far reported have been obtained with radishes and carrots, which in some  cases have be*m nearly six times as  heavy as those grown under similar  conditions in ordinary soil.  Experiments are also being made to  ascertain the Influence of both rad  ium and radium emanation on the size  and color of flowers and other market garden produce. It is stated that  once incorporated with the soil the  effects of a!ie'���������'���������radium residues will  remain constant for hundreds .of  years.  Sceptics will recall; however, the  once belauded but futile electrical experiments of Lord Rosse, in Irish  potato field**, am! will suspend judgment until time has tested the radium  cure for baci:ward vegetation.  SLIDES BACK FROM THE ALASKAN  SIDE AND INTO CANADIAN  TERRITORY  The Grand Pacific Glacier Move's  About the Sea Slope Near Skagway,  Where Canadian Territory is Shut  Off  From  the  Sea  by Alaska   Pan-  - handle.  Canada's wandering glacier is back  again at the, old stand in Northern  British Columbia, bringing with it a  harbor.  The Grand Pacific Glacier moves  about the sea slope west of Skagway,  where the Canadian territory is shut  off from th3 sea by the Alaskan Panhandle. It is sixty miles wide.. Three  years ago it moved back through ihe  Alaskan strip, bringing the shore line  with it ancl providing British Columbia with a northern harbor on.the Pacific.  This patriotic preference on the  part of the peripatetic glacier was  warmly approved by the people of  British Columbia, but a year ago tho  fickle thing, moved out again, pushing  the harbor in front of it.  This lamentable breach of trust  was discovered *by Prof. Lawrence  Martin who .went up to call upon the  glacier with a party from the International Geological Congress, who  notified Prof. R. W. Brock, deputy  minister of mines.  Now Prof. Brock has received another message from Prof. Lawrence,  announcing that the little truant is  back' in Canada. The deputy minister  is of the opinion that one day the  glacier ..'will settle in British Columbia  for good and all, possibly applying for  naturalization papers, the general  movement of these glaciers being  landward.  CANADA'S ASSET  Campaign to Spread Knowledge of  Magnificent Reserye  The visit ot Sir Arthur Conan Doyle  to Jasper Park has served to draw the  attention of the. travelling, public of  Great Britain to the magnificont~asset  Canada possess in her great national  reserves.  J. B. I-Iarkin, commissioner of Dominion parks, is also carrying on a  campaign to make these immense piay  grounds better known, and has issued from the department of the interior attractive souvenirs of the  mountain peaks, This is a booklet entitled "Just a Sprig of Mountain  Heather." Attached to its cover is a  piece of rear purple heather taken  from the Alpine meadows of the Canadian^ Rockies.  Mr. Harkiu treats in the booklet of  the significance of these reserves and  of the Dominion's natural heritage of  beauty.  Not Likely to Raise Indemnity  A couple cf members of parliament  in Ottawa expressed the view that  the declaartion of E. A. Lancaster,  M.P., that he will not seek reelection  because of 'he; small sessional indemnity, will lead impetus to a" movement  next year to increase the pay of members.   They up'w get $2,500.  At the end cf the session before last  there was an aggressive movement  for a $4,0C0 indemnity, but it was  turned dowii and this year nothing  was heard of it.  While it would be very popular with  members, there is, how-ever, somo  reason to doubt if the government  would increase the indemnity on the  eve of a general election:  Give Up Use of Rrdium for Cancer  ..- Germany's greatest surgery specialists have aoandoried the use of radium for the treatment of cancer and  are now confining themselves exclusively to th'3 Roentgen rays.- Among  them is Professor B.'.umm, director of  the Women's Clinic of the University  of Berlin, whe ,.has just presented a  number of -vomen cured of cancer "by  the Roentgen metlud.  The surgeon-general of the German army, Professor Bier, who is  also the head of the surgical faculty  of the university in Berlin, is another  who had  renounced faith in  radium.  Sheep Crazing Changes  At the jnstancc of the minister of  the interior, orders-incouncil passed  In 1884 and 188'-! prohibiting the grazing of sheep in certain portions of  Southern Alberta have been! rescinded,  the reason being that they conflict  with the regulations issued on February .18, 19.14, whereby leases may be  granted to siieep owners.

A Notabi j Ice-Master  Peterhead has produced many notable sailors and whaling men, but few  have had.so adventurous a career as  Mr. John S. Crowthers, a native of the  town, whose death i*i Glasgow has  been announced. Mr. Crowther was  an expert ice master, and acted in that  capacity on, several memorable expeditions. He was navigator to Mr.  Leigh-Smith, tne explorer, ancl accompanied him ir: his yacht, the Eira,  which was struck by an ice-floe and  founded in 1881.  Tlie leader of the expedition and the  crew of twenty-five men succeeded in  saying the ^hole of their provisions  and their small boats. But the party  was destine':! to remain in a hut on  tlie ice in Franz Joseph Land for almost a year. The stores became exhausted, and it is not generally known  that they 'lepende-'. for a time for  their substance to a retriever clog  belonging to Mr. Robert Stephen, Peterhead. While in Peterhead Mr. Leigh-  Smith t*;ok' a fancy for tha canine,  ancl, by permission of Mr. Stephen,  Mr. Leigh-Smith took the animal  along with him. Bob. as the dog was  named, decoyed Polar bears to the  hut, and thus provided food for the  members of the expedition until the  ice broke up and enabled them to* get  to Nova Zemba in theirb oats. Bob  was returner, safely to his owner, and  a dinner was given in Music hall, Peterhead, in honor of the brave animal.  ���������Tit-Bits.  Double Radius of Cape Race Stations  The gover.nncnt is erecting a new  wireless station at Cape Race which  will practically double the present  radius of the station and make Cape  Race the first point of land communication for the vessels sailing from or  to north Atlantic ports. The new  equipment will have a radius of at  least 500 miles instead of the present  normal radius of about 250. Even  with the comparatively limited radius  of the present station news of most of  the Atlantic wrecks are now picked  up by the government operators at  Cape Race. Tie new towers will be  ready for operation next month.  Over 10,000  Killed on  U.S.  Railroads  The records of the Interstate Commerce Commission show that for the  year just ended there were 10,150  killed on railroads in the United  States and more than 190,000 persons  were injured during the same period  The figures as to the number killed  and injured a>-e official and they indicate that tha railroads are more  deadly than war. *  More than 210,003 persons have  been killed on United States railroads during the last twenty-five  years and mo.*e than 2,000,000 injured. Figure that out ancl see what  it means to families left dependent  bereaved and their futures changed!  to insurance companies and to tlio  railroads themselves, and you will not  wonder that the Interstate Commerce  Commission is taking the matter seriously.  While the efforts of the commis-  sicn have b-ought about some improvement, it is only slight, as for  the fiscal year which ended June 30  1913, 10,964 were killed, 814 more than  last year.  "Tho ravages of war pale into Insignificance 1)afore, those silent Indications of t'.u destruction of human  life accompanying tlie peaceful operations of our railroads." said a commission Dt'l'inal.  Thirty  Million   Dollr.rs Awaiting  War  Germany's "war chest" reposes in  the monster tower of Spandau.  The total amount deposited there is  $30,000,000 in gold, which government  insists must be kept inviolate for the  purpose it was originally- destined���������a  fund in cass war should press Germany so hard that funds would be unavailable elsewhere.  The gold was obtained from France  as indemnity after tlie Franco-Prussian war, and was placed in the tower  to be held in reserve for the especial  purpose of financing troops should  Germany ever again be called on to  fight.  Recently a great corps of clerks under the watchful eyes of scores of  troops counted every single coin of  the vast fortune and found all intact.  Not a single coin had &een moved  from* the original; resting place given  it, when the gold was stored away.  Many political leaders in Germany  who are convinced that the days of  wars are ever or ought to be, argue  that the immense sum could be utilized with great effect in some humanitarian cause.  They insist that the grim tower  standing there, dedicated to warfare  and wanton strife, is"~a sad example,  to set before the nation and the world  in these enlightened times.  PROGRAMME   OF   WORK   MAPPED  OUT BY MARINE AND NAVAL  DEPARTMENTS  WILL ADVERTISE CANADA  British   Engineers  May  Inspect Water  Powers on the  Winnipeg  River  Canada's water power resources  will be advettised at the Panama ox  position in San ..Francisco, by a series  of models of typical power pla.its  from the Atlantic to che Pacilic. Tli3S'*.*  will be arranged in a semi-circle in the  Canadian building in front of a great  Canadian painting. Gibson Cat'.ctt of  Toronto will pain this picture, which  will be S5 teet long by 9 feet high,  and will present a bird's eye view of  the whole Dominion.  All known water powers, whether  developed or not, will be depicted on  this painting Tlie water powers of  the Winnipeg river and Bow river will  be given spncial attention. If possible  the Association of British Engineers,  who meet at San Francisco, will be  brought to Winnipeg to inspect the  water powers.  Will  Locate Three Wireless Stations  in  the  Ctraits and  at  Entrance to  the    Bay���������Two    Lighthouses to be  Commenced This Year.  The marine and naval departments  are engaged on a big programme of  work this summer to make  Hudson.  Bay and Straits safe for   navigation.  Three wireless stations in the Straits  and at the entrance to the bay aro being located sc. as to give a continuous  line of communication from Port Nelson and Port Churchill to the Atlantic.    The actual construction    of the  stations, .however, will not be begun  until next spring.  The charting of Hudson Straits Ib  being done by tho steamer Acadia,  while other government vessels aro  taking soundings and mapping the  harbors of Port Nelson, Fort*Churchill  and at the mouth 'of the Nottaway  river. The government steamer Minto,  which has lefV Halifax for Hudson  Bay, carried materials for lighthouse  construction. The lighthouses are to  be commencpd this year on either side  of the entrance to Port Nelson, while  another will be built upon a newly  charted shoa.1 some miles out in the  bay. The charting being done at the  mouth of the Nottaway river is preparatory to the construction of the  proposed railway from the southeast  tc the National Transcontinental ia  connection with the alternative route  from Port Nelson across the northern  end of James Bay and thence by rail  to Montreal. The government plans to  build the southern half of this line  from the National Trancontinental and  an appropriation of $1,000,000 was  passed last session for preliminary  surveys. -The Clerquo syndicate hajd  originally p'anned -to build the whol9  line, but according to present plans  the government itself will shoulder  the cost of.tha portion between.Montreal and the NationalTrancontinental,  Ho'nssieacl Entries  .

His mother's maiden namo was Helen  O'Grady;  When last heard o.\ Michael was  supposed to be in a Montreal Insti-  t-ite for tlie Blind. He was injured  at a liro in St. Patrick's Hall, Boston, some years ago, becoming blind  co the result  Miniature Irrigation Farm  The city of Lethbridge has received  announcement that the department of  tlie interior will instal an irrigated  farm in miniature in Henderson Park.  This is for the purpose of determining  the proper amount of water to be up-  plied to the various hay and cereal  crops.  Big Prices For Autograph Letters  Five thousand six hundred dollars  was received for a collection of autograph letters and historical documents put upon sale in London recently, among them being a series of  forty-nine letters from Beau B-ummclI  ancl sixty-nine others relating to him  written by such famous contemporaries as Tom Moore, Samuel Rogers.'  ancl Leigh Hunt. Urummell's co-Hoc*-  t'on brought ic $535.  Somo especially important documents relating to Bobbie Burns were  knocked down for $3,000. They included the manuscript of the poem  "The Humbls Petition of Bruar Wa'er  to the Duke of A thole" ancl the verses  of "The Soehio Soc.her's Dochter. ���������  which Burns himself described as "one  of my best; poems."  Will  Reduce Strength of Corps  Because the strength is considered  unnecessarily heavy, the minister of  militia is reducing tlie establishment  of tile Canadian engineering ancl army  service corp*. Tlie corps, which were  constituted :.t their present standing  ten years ago, have long been considered too large, the army service numbering 150, a thirl of the British army  service corps-, and the engineers 300.  The exact reduction has not been  determined, but a more workable  basis will be sought. Officers an:!  men will he given tlie. opportunity of  transferring to other corps.  Controlling  the   Aeroplane  When Heir rich Oelerich drove his  biplane to r. height of 24,600 feet near  Lepsiche was beating the birds at  I heir own game.".".  Humboldt saw the condor flying at  a supposed height of 23,000 feet; thi3  great bird, which nests and roosts  above the^ 10,000 foot level, might  equal or surpass.Oelerich's feat, but  ���������-lilyno ^ird "of his own Germany  could do it. When Gay-Lussac in 1850  threw out carrier pigeons at heights  above 20,000 ffcet. those tireless travellers dropped heavily toward a denser  air..  The altitude limit for birdmen must  nearly have been reached by Herr  Oelerich, only five and a half years after Wilbur Wright held the world's  record of 60 feet. Glaisher's balloon  ascension of 29,000 feet may be ac:  cepted, vbut he was unconscious at  ���������Lhat height, and an aeroplane pilot  on the wing does not care to be unconscious. When Tissandier in 1875  rose to 27,850 feet he brought down  his two campanions dead in his basket. No mountain climber has ever  reached 25,000 feet. Whymper's experiments show that above 18,000 feet  no training cr experience prevents the  slightest exertion from being painfully difficult.  While Herr Oelerich was performing his perilous exploit, twenty  French aviators were celebrating Bastille Day near Paris by flying four  abreast past a reviewing post, as neatly spaced as cavalry chargers. 'These  two developments of a single day  show how swiftly the control of the  aeroplane is being perfected. Control  of aviators is now quite as pressing &  problem.  To Take a   Bird  Census  A census of birds in the United  States is about to be taken, by tho  department of agriculture, with the  cooperation of bird lovers throughout the country.  The object Is to determine how  many birds of particular species,  bleed within definite areas. It is  thought that, by a comparison of census figures with ethers already available it will bo possiblo to ascertain  whether tho present state and federal laws aie effective ancl whether  game and insectivorous birds aro increasing or decreasing In numbers.  The department estimates that farmers in that country lose a billion  dollars every year through insect  ravages. A vast deal of this could be  saved if birds were given a chance  to live ancl work.  Nature has been, from tho beginning, a crusader for bird conservation. The number of insects has  been limited by birds ancl the number of birds by their food supply'  When men break in upon this wise  arrangement danger and trouble ensue.  Expedition's 150,000 Miles Journey  J. Foster Stackhouse's British Antarctic expedition will sail from London In December. Mr. Stackliouse  contemplates girdling the world in an  oceanographical survey which may  equal in results the voyage of tho  Challenger. As originally planned the  expedition will survey somo 1,300  miles of the Antarctic coastline. Tlie  oceanographical survey includes tho  new routes following on the opening  of the Panama canal and the charts  show a voyage of over 150,000 mllea,  which must bo completedjfbefore the  expedition returns at the end of 1919.  61  Aia-MiMiiiiiiiiJiiMimnijM.
