 f *..  Kettle Valley Orchardist  FOURTEENTH YEAR���������No. 47  GRAND .FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAR  f.% ..  SPECIAL TREAT  S  On the evening of the first day of  the Grand Forks fair, Tuesday,  September 28, in the exhibition  building, a special treat'will be given  the people of the city and the visitors to the fair, when they will have  the pleasure of hearing an uddress  by Rev. Fred H. Graham, of Nelsor,  on "National Ideals and Individual  Responsibility."  The massed choirs of the city,  under the leadership of H. L McKenzie, will provide special music  for the occasion, accompanied by  the orchestra. All citizens should  avail themselves of the privilege of  hearing this magnificent address.  THE MAIN FACTS  ARE UNTOUCHED  " Vancouver, B. C., Sept. 15, 1915.  ���������In view of the misleading state-  ' ments that have been circulated  throughout the province regarding  the motives and actions of the Min  isterial Union of the Lower Main  land, in the matter of the publication of the pamphlet entitled "The  Crisis in B. C ," I am instructed to  forward the enclosed resolutions,  unanimonsly adopted, at the last  meeting of the union,���������which meeting  was one of the largest and most  representative yet held.  J. R. Robertson, Secretary.  THE RESOLUTIONS.  In view of the repeated statement*  ���������that Rev. A E. Cook and the others  whose names are signed to "The  Crisis in B. C." acted un* their own  responsibility, we submit the follow  ing facts for the consideration of  your readers:  l.That the Ministerial Union of  the Lower Mainland approved of  the policy of issuing a statement to  the public on the exploitation of the  natural resources of British Col urn  bia. --......-  2. That' in puisuance of that  policy a committee of investigation  was appointed which represented us  throughout. This committee met a  great many times, sent two of its  members to Victoria for some dtiys  to consult the records on file there,  .find to verify all copiesof documents  submitted and statements made  about the situation throughout the  province. As as result of these investigations they were convinced of  the accuracy of the statements which  were afterwards made in the pamphlet.  3. This report was presented and  eliscussed in detail at several of the  most largely attended meetings of  tbe Ministerial Union ever held,  and was unanimously and heartily  endorsed by everyone who was  present at the last and most largely  attended of all the meetings.  4. That the campaign of publicity  . 6. After having carefully oh^id-j  ered all the   answers  and    ex plan a  tion given on behalf of the  government, we   are   more than ever convinced of the necessity of the inves  tigatiou, for which we appeal.  Inallthese attempted replies, the  main facts set forth in the pamphlet  "The   Crisis   in   B.   0."   have   re  mained entirely untouched.  Our only desire is that the people  of British Columbia should know  the truth, and we feel that -if a full  and non partisan investigation be  held, every charge we have made  will be fully borne out in all essentials.  Signed on behalf of the Union:  G. R. Welch,  Central   Baptist  Church, President;  J. R. Robertson:, D. D.,  St.   David's  Presbyterian    Church,  Secretary;  John Mackay, D. U.,  Principal Westminster Hal!;  ��������� J. K. Unsworth, D D.,  First Congregational Church;  v E. Manuel,  Robson Methodist Memorial Church,  Consulting Member of Committee  Death of Jeffrey Hammar  Jeffrey Hammar, one of Grand  Forks' pioneers, who was manager  for a number of years for P. Burns  &, Co.'s store in ihis city, died on  Monday. September 20, at Chilli-  wack. B. C., wheie he has. been conducting a meat market on " his own  account for a number of years. The  cause of his death Was sugar diabetes. Pie was about 50 years of age.  Tbe funeral was held at. Chilliwack  under.the auspices of the Knights  of Pythias, of which order he was a  prominent member, having, been  grand chancellor of the domain of  British Columbia during the year  1907. He is survived by three children, his wife having but recently  passed away.  Mr. 'Hammar played a prominent part in the early history  of Grand Forks. He was alderman  for a number of years, and served  as mayor of the city for two terms.  During his last administration he  was instrumental in materially reducing the number of liquor  licenses. He was also a leading  spirit in a number of the fraternal  organizations of the city.  IACESAND SPORTS  AT THE FAIR  "On the Field of Honor"  The publishers of The Family  Herald and Weekly Star, Montreal,  are making a strong- bid for that  beautiful pictuae, full of pathos, entitled "On the Field of Honor." It is  assumed the publishers of the Family Herald have in mind using it as a  presentation plate. If that is so there  is a great treat in store for readers  of The Family Herald and Weekly  Star this autumn. In past years The  Family Herald of Montreal has been  noted not only for the wonderful ex  cellence of that paper but for many  beautiful pictures it has presented  to its readers. Tbe Family Herald  has a name for succeeding in anything it undertakes, and we feel sure  if it is humanly possible to secure  ' On the Field of Honor" that the  publishers will succeed in getting it.  "On the Field of Honor" is  attract-  The following is the program of  the main features, races and sports  at the sixth annual Grand Forks  fall fair, which will be held in this  city next Tuesday and Wednesday,  September 28 and 29:  first day.  10 a. m ���������Stock judging at fair  ground**.  1:30 p.m.���������Opening of~"'fair at  skating rink.

The prize  money in many sections has been  greatly increased, and the competition will therefore be keener and the  exhibits of a superior character.  One notable instance in which prizes  worth fighting for have been hung  up is for the best individual ranch  display. These are: First prize,  $75; second, 850; third, 825; fourth,.  8.10. In the live stock section, the  amount of the prizes offered "for  registered cattle have been more  tban doubled over last year, and  this fact should bring out the best  exhibit in this section ever seen in  this portion of the province.  At the Presbyterian church next  Sabbath at 11 a.m. the aunual  '���������'Rally Day" service will be held,  for which printed programs are provided. All parents and Sunday  school scholars, including the cradle  roll, .are expected to be present.  Come. At the evening service, 7:30  o'clock, the pastor will speak on the  topic, "A Lost Opportunity."  Tbe board of school trustees have  proclaimed Wednesday, the 29th  inst., a school holiday in.order to  afford the children an opportunity  to attend the fair. The city council  has been asked by the Agricultural  association to declare two civic half  holidays during the fair. Action  on this request will be taken at the  meeting on Monday night.next.  FAIR ENTRIES'  Entries for the sixth annual  Grand Forks fall fair close tomorrow  night, Saturday, September 25.  After that date no more exhibits can  be entered for competition. It is  necessary to strictly enforce this  rule.--1. It is also desirable that everybody in the city and valley who can  do so should make a display. By  acting on this injunction, the success of the fair will be proportion  ately more pronounced.  H  HTHA MIKE  carried on throughout the   province ,  by Rev. A. E. Cooke, as secretary of \in% widespread attention in Europe  It's poor rule that hangs lire when  the union, was planned and directed  by the Ministerial Union throughout; jts ,n<lker trie8 to apply it  and we desire to express our entire |    approval of his conduct of  his  part I  of the work. the deed in a real estate transaction,  annual Rally Day service.  SHIPS CAB OF ORE  The Bertha mine at Bannock City,  which is being worked under lease  by Republic parties, on Wednesday  made a trial shipment of a enarload  of ore to the Granby smelter- Those  who have seen tbe ore say that it Is  high grade: Tbe Bertha has Hplen.  did shipping facilities, being located  within a short distance of the North  Fork branch of the Kettle Valley  line.  The judges of the exhibits at the  sixth annual Grand Fork full fair,  which opens next Tuesday' will be:  Live stock. S H. Hopkins; poultry,  W. Miller Higgs; fruit and vegetables, P. E. French. Ladies from  the outside will be asked to award  tbe prizes in the home cooking and  lancy work departments.  Tbe amusement part of the sixth  annual Grand Forks fall fair is not  to bp neglected. The sports committee has arranged an excellent  program of horse races, athletic  sports, etc., and these features of  the exhibition will be fully  equal if not superior to those  witnessed here in former years. The  fair will end with a big dance on the  evening of the 29th.  The performance in aid of the  wounded soldiers' fund at the Empress theatre on Thursday night  was very largely attended. In ad  dition to the three reels of pictures,  giving actual scenes on the battlefield, a saxophone quartet rendeied  a number of musical selections.'  Tbe federal government has informed the local machine gun committee that it is providing the number of machine considered necessary  for the troops going to the front,  and that the available supply of  guns has been taken up by the gov-  ment for many months ahead. In  view of this fact, the committee has  issued a circular letter to the subscribers to the machine gun fund  suggesting that, with their consent,  GlOOO of tbe #2,001.52 now on hand  in the Bank of Commerce be distributed as follows: 8400 to tbe local  Red Cross society, S400 to the  Daughters of the Empire, and $200  lothe patriotic fund, the balance to  be held for the time being and used  as occasion may require.  assisted by Lome A. Campbell, M.  P.P.; Mrs. Gaw and others will open  tbe sixth annual fair.  The Independent Company of  Rifles will give a military drill and  maneuvers at the fair grounds on  Tuesday afternaon next, immediately after the stock parade.  The local individual ranch dis  plays will be the special feature of  this year's Grand Forks fair. There  will be five or more entries in this  competition. A grand display from  the Dominion experimental form  will also be made.  The fish in Christina lake have become so strong thai they pull the  fishing rods out of the fishermen's  hands with the greatest of ease.  Two b'isketball games will be  played at the fair grounds during  the fair, one between the pupils of  high and the public school, and the  other between the city team and the  high school.  Entries for the sixth annualGrarid  Forks fall fair will positively close on  Saturday, September 25.  It is reported that a strike of rich  ore was made on Monday in the  tunr.el on the mining property  owned byTimTownend and A. 10.

C.  t*Mmm*limi9UMXBXXW!l?*$  -A ^BRIGHT-: T0BAC<30:.:0K; THE FINEST -..QUALITY;  10 CENTS PER PLUG  ion  v  inter Rye  Is Being Grown With Success in the  Three Prairie Provinces  Th ore. arc many excelle:'; crops of  winter rye in tho three prairie provinces tin's year,, and the department  of agriculture of Saskatchewan lias  shown commendable enterprise in getting out a very excellent'little bulletin  on ' ihia crop���������possibly stimulated  thereto by the fact that the minister  of agriculture, J-lon. W. H. Motherwell,  lias demonstrated its value on his faring  at Abernelhy.  First, let it be said thai no one is  recommending winter rye as a substitute for crops now being grown, but  rather as an additional string which  the farmer may have to his bow, or  ���������a separate basket into which he'���������may  profitably put a. few eggs.  One.of the great claims for winter  rye is that it is an excellent cleaning j  crop. Frank Wieneke, of Rockwood'  district; just north .of Winnipeg, has  a splendid illustration of its capabilities in this direction. He purchased  a piece of land that was foul, as only  Red River land of long and careless  cultivation can he. It was especially bad with sow thistle-" Thi-*.  land he summerfaliowed .carefully, and  early in September, :1914, seeded" it to  rye. This spring* he pastured it for  a time,' and'now has a fine crop which  was in bloom on July 5th, and at. the  present time is just about ready for  the binders, it looks good for about  30 to 35 bushels to ilia acre, and best  of all there is hardly a sow thistle to  be seen. As.;, a matter of fact Mr.  Wieneke seeded rather late. Fo:  cleaning purposes it can be seeded in  July or very early in August. This  gives it a good growth which may. be  used, for fall pasturing and is particularly valuable where there are milch  cows, as it comes in just when the  native grasses are dry, and being sue-,  culent helps to keep up the flow of  milk- Care should be taken, ho-wevcr,  not to allow it to be; pastured too  closely, as this would endanger it  winter killing! This rye can- then be  pastured again for several weeks in  the spring, and will, with any kind  of good-weather,-furnish a crop which  will be ready for cutting well before  the end'of July.  in Saskatchewan it is especially  recommended as a preventive io soil  drifting, and in some places in Alberta  they are taking off a crop of winter  rye, plowing the land and re-seeding to  winter wheat.  Mixed with other grain, crushed rye  makes excellent hog feed. Mr. Wieneke and some of his neighbors are getting very good results by using half  rye and half oats and barley.  A very fair finality of seed is obtainable from the " standard seed  houses, and anyone who thinks of putting in some rye this year should see  about it at once. If there is a special  bit of summerfallow which you are  anxious to clean up it would be well  worth making the experiment with  winter rye, and every man if he is  attempting winter rye for the first  "time, should write to the department  of agriculture at Regina and secure a  copy.of the bulletin above referred to.  Don*t forget that it is one of the  earliest pastures in the spring, coming long before the prairie grass is at  all green or succulent. Early in April  of the present year, horses, cattle and  sheep were grazing on a beautiful  green field of rye on the farm of the  lion. Duncan Marshall at Olds, A.1-  berta. when the surrounding prairi������  was dry and brown.  There has probably never been a  year in the history of the west, when  there were so many uneven fields of  grain to-be seen. This is especially  true of the crop in central and southwestern Saskatchewan, but occurs in  all the provinces. Many reasons are  given for this. The season, of course,  has been an abnormal one���������there  have been blow outs, cut worms, frosts  and June hail. But uneven fields exist  where none of these exceptional conditions have obtained. In inquiring  about a field on thc Weyburn and  Lethbridge branch, just a. little west  of Cadillac, which was strikingly even  for any year and most remarkable in a  season when all thc surrounding fields  wore showing grain all the way from  five inches to two feet high, the writer  was informed that the owner of thc  field had" planted his seed three inches  deep, a iff I attributed tiie oven germ-  ation fo the fact that it had all been  put down t.o I he .sub-surface moisture.  The result, not only in evenness o.f  stand.-but in early and well developed  head, suggests that this is an item to  keep in mind for future use.  A number of experienced farmers  are laying the uneven stand in their  fields to the use of single disc drill,  claiming lhat they have a tendency to  cover the newly dropped seed with  dry surface soil, in this way delaying  germination. \ Tlie man who seeded  three inches, ^ deep seeded with a  double disc drill. This may be another point for careful consideration  in future seeding.' Quito a number of  farmers have avowed their intentions  of never again using a single disc.  Alberta has some tremendous crops  of alfalfa this year. One man near  Medicine Hat reports four tons to the  acre on a first cutting, and the crop  so heavy that, lie could not use horse  W. N. U. 1065  rakes and had'to do the-entire work,  wilh pitch forks.*In as much as alfalfa  hay is worth S20 per (on at (he present  time, (his is a prelty profitable crop.  This man irrigates his 50 acres with  a home made irrigation system from '-  nearby creek. Of course there are  magnificent stands of alfalfa in all (ho  irrigation belts of southern Alberta,  but many of (hem (his year have not  been irrigated, there having been plenty of rain���������iu fact, many of. the crops  of non-irrigable land, are quits as  heavy and luxuriant this year as those  of the irrigation belt. There are also  some excellent stands of timothy and  alfalfa which certainly produce good  results in a season like the present,  but probably would not be so good in a  dry year/as ��������� the alfalfa alone. The  only trouble about alfalfa this year iu  Alberta has been the fact that first  cuttings were delayed "on account of  rain, and there was some difficulty in  curing the crop. However, the second  growth in many places is now from  eight to ten inches high, and fields  that have only been 'cut "a-week,'are  showing a very good growth-  Another method of, raising timothy  hay/which finds considerable favor in  southern Alberta, .is that of discing the  prairie sod and seeding it to timothy.  The claim for this method ; is tha.t  there is: a greater certainty of a crop  in a dry season. It does not, however,  as a method, nieet with entire approval of the experts on experimental  farms.  In passing, it.may be'remarked that  Alberta has an immense crop of hay of  all kinds this year, both native ancl  cultivated, and given" reasonably good  weather to put it up, will have an enormous amount for export over and,  above local requirements.  While on the subject of Alberta, it  is timely to say something of the outlook for fruit on the Dominion experimental farm at Lethbridge. The crab  apple trees are laden almost to breaking, but this': has-occurred before, but  this year they have the. best showing  of standard apples the farm has ever  seen, and a very good showing of  hardy plums. It is very interesting to  note,, that while the trees blossomed  profusely on all sides, the fruit is  almost entirely on the east side of the  trees,'or the side away from the prevailing winds ,at blossom time. The  wind in southern Alberta is one of the  big factors always to be reckoned with  and therefore shelter belts 'are.-, the.  first essential in the production of  both fruit and Vegetables. On the 10th  of July, when the writer saw tlie apple trees, there was a strong northwest wind blowing, and while the sun  was bright, it was cold enough in the  wind to make a heavy coat acceptable.  Inside the shelter belts of the Experimental Farm, however, where the  fruit orchards are located, it .'was-just  a nice warm summer day. The black  and red currant bushes, laden with  fruit, hardly stirred a leaf, and only  the tops of the apple, crabapple and  plum trees were affected by the wind.  Given proper shelter by the swift  growing willows and cotton woods  there seems no reason why apple and  plum culture should not be reasonably  successful in any of. the open prairie  country, but the shelter belts are unquestionably the first essential.  A method of developing a shelter  belt which has been tried with a great  deal of success, particularly in some  of the more open spaces of central  Saskatchewan/is that of planting a  double row of sun flowers on each side  of the little trees, yearly, for the first  few years. The sun flowers grow rapidly and rank in the strong soil, and  form a temporary shelter for the future shelter belt, and if the stalks are  left in the ground all winter, they collect any snow that falls, and this way-  give help -in winter as well as summer.  It is extremely interesting to meet  in Saskatchewan and Alberta men and  women who have moved to these provinces from Manitoba. Almost invariably they say, "We miss Manitoba for  the trees" and. yet 35 years ago the  whole of southern Manitoba was almost, if not quite as bare, as the most  open spaces of Saskatchewan and Alberta. Manitobans owe more than  they are willing to acknowledge to the  example of their Mennonite neighbors,  in the matter of tree planting. The  MennonUes more than a century ago,  p** the urgent request.of Catherine of  R**ssia, eolonizeu thc steppes along  thc Black Sea, ano as part of their  exemption from military duty, yearly  planted for (he government of Russia,  thousands of trees on thc open plains.  When the Russian government, in the  early days of 1869 and '70 strove to  ignore Catherine's contract with these  people, and to force them into military  service, it was a bad thing for Russia  and a very good thing for Western  Canada, for they came in thousands to  the prairies bringing their tree planting habit, with them, and to them is  due very much of (lie treed beauty  which is now a feature of Manitoba  landscapes.���������Manitoba Fvgc Press-  Summer Care  Liberty  Liberty is the right to do what tho  law allows, and if a citizen could do  what tlie law forbids it would be no  longer liberty because others would  have  the same  power.���������Montesquieu.  Extra Care Taken at This Season is  Well Repaid  When we think of the brave effort  Unit is made to keep everything spick  and iipan and s;x-h ctireiul attention  given to. the wants of the poultry in  tne winter time when eggs are high  in price and every effort is made to  get as many of them as possible, it is  surprising that more attention is not  given to <th3 flock during the summer  season, when the bi'r.ls" that are to'produce the winter eggs are getting their  growth and start to make them eith-  .' capable of being heavy producers  or just ordinary poorly produced stock  that can only possibly give second-  class results. :���������   ��������� ' * .  True,    it is that natural condition:  can   more   frequently,    be  given   the  birds with little effort during The sum"-'  mer when  they are moro or less at  liberty, but there are conditions  that  arise almost more serious than those  likely to develop  when evi-ything is  frozen   up  and   undesirable  germ  development   entirely   dormant   for   the  time being.    Where but a small flock  is kept and they have 'unlimited freedom, usually the birds can look after  themselves fully as well,- but if numbers; are  to: .be" handled     they  need  closer attention to  detail during the  hot months  than"-at any time of the  year.     At   this   season   of  the   year,  when many are inclined to ease up on  their    labors, on account of the  discomfort   of   extra   effort   in   the   hot  weather, is the time we should be giving the closest attention to tha-little  details   that   will   mean  so  much   to  keeping the birds in the best condition  iif. we. would., wish, to have the,best results the following winter and prepare  for better producers for years to come.  The subject of this article might be  divided  for  convenience    into    three  parts,      namely,   housing   condition:*,  yard   conditions   and   food.    Housing  conditions will have reference to both  the   breeding, stock   and     the   young  chicks.    With the "ormer the important requirements are to see that the  houses become as well supplied with  fr^sh air all-the time as possible- This  can be accomplished by removing all  windows and making as much of the  coops open as possible without creating drafts  on    the    birds   at   night.  Houses that are .closed up much, become -stuffy and hot and the birds suffer exceedingly with the heat at-'niglit  when they are roosting in them.    The  greatest  attention   must   be  given  to  keeping the coop absolutely clean and  where  it  is   possible  removal  of tho  droppings every day should  be  practised.    Frequenb us^. of disinfectant-,  should be used and suitable, red mite  exterminators should be used  on the  roosts and their supports so that the  birds  will not come  from  the roosts  in the morning used up from supplying these blood-sucking insects with a  bountiful supply of rich chicken blood.  A sprinkling of air-slacked lime on the  dropping boards after cleaning will be  found to be a valuable aid in sujipress-  ing odors.  With the small chicks the precautions suggested are even more important than they are with the older  bir.ls. These tender little fellows are  more readily harmed by dirty conditions than the large fowls and good  results are absolutely, impossible unless the strictest attention is given  to clean coops, open to all the fresh  air they can get and sufficient room  so that the-pe-elinnot be the slightest  danger of overcrowding, or housing together chicks that are not mostly  about the same age. The younger  ones are bound to get hard usage at  the hands of the older ones and it is  impossible that they shall do well unless they are given coops to themselves, and have the same attention  they would get if there were no larger  birds ib'out the place.  Yard conditions we might divide into condition of the soil, shade, and  amount of room given to thc flock.  With the old birds where there might  be a tendency to keep them on the  same ground continually, it is very important to see that the ground is kept  stirred up or the soil will become soured aud in such condition that the best  results cannot be had. Of course, if  tiiis is large enough so-that grass is  grown without being spoiled by the  flock, this danger is not so likely to  exist, but it is practically impossible  to keep birds confined to, small yards  without having the soil contaminated  unless pi-oventive means are used-  Digging in the soil, treating occasionally with air-slacked lime and growth  of" some quick-growing vegetation  should take care of tlio matter effectively and prevent any danger of  loss from this cause.  Shade of some sort or other should  be provided for the birds. If trees are  not available, some artificial shade  must be given them. Don't forget the  dust bath. This is very important and  usually very easy to supply. If some  part of the yard is kept worked up a  little for the- birds they will usually  keep it nice and fine so that they can  dust in it rt will.  All of the above is equally true  in  the case of the young chicks; only  that they can stand less than the  large fowls and will suffer more readily where they are not given lliese  protective conditions. If possible the  chicks* should be grown on different  ground each year ard not more than  the number tho land will"stand should  be raised on it. >.Thc little fellows  should be allowed to range -is far as  possible and have abundance of sunshine ancl shade so that they can have  the benefit of either at will. Lon .  growth and bushes afford ideal protection from wind and help much in  adding to the undisturbed growth of a  growing flock- Corn fields and fields  bearing such like crops-are the very-  best places to allow the small chicks  to range and' if their coops can bo  placed in proximity to such it will  prove the very best arrangement that  could be secured.  Food in the summer season is just  as important as at any other time.  Perhaps'.'more- or-lcss is due .to improper feedng than most people imagine. This is especially true Of overfeeding. It is r. simple matter to reduce the amount of food the old flock  gets and practically eliminate such  heating foods as corn and buckwheat.  However,: we believe if a variety is fed  in limited quantities the birds will get  along very nicely and: give first-clas."*  results. 'It is not quite as important  what kinds of grain they get as the  number of varieties-of. grain offered  them., The birds can balance it to.  their individual requirements and"the:i  they do not get more than they can  cat. up nicely which will be evident at  feeding time. Dry inash of good balance can be used with the best resul'.s  and danger from, overfeeding is practically done away with.  Too much water cannot be supplied  the birds ,'it this "time and the of'tener  it is changed the fresher and cooler it  will be for them. Special attention to  this detail will result in -more eggs  when many birds are resting or loafing and have better birds to enter the  fall and winter for business at that  time. ....  With the small chicks feed and  water require closest attention in  every detail. We have not found anything to replace a good commercial  chick food for thu first six weeks.  Usually we give treats of some sort of  meat cooked and cut up Tor the every  other day "or so and hard boiled eggs  when we can spare them.- As the  weather gets warm .the danger seems  to lie in any end 'avor to force the little fellows and generally with sloppy  feed of some sort cr other start bowel  trouble .that will bring disaster to a  good many of them. A little food often,  of big variety, and a:, much milk as  we can let them nave gives a chick  as good a start as anything, and particular attention during the hot weather must be paid to see that f,hey do  not get too much. Good, dry mash, of  course, prevent;* this likelihood of  over-feeding and while we are coming  to use the system more ancl more a  little time is gained by us by using .*.  wet mash made up largely of bran and  ground grains moistened to a crumbly  mess with sour or sweet milk.. We believe the birds .feather better and possibly are ready just a little sooner  than wilh the dry mash entirely.  If these details are given close attention, innumerable difficulties that  may arise may be avoided, such a*s  roup, canker, chickenpox, going light,  consumption, and all forms of lost vitality due to being fairly eaten up with  mites and lice that multiply by the  millions where the conditions favor  them.  It may seem easier to overlook  these little details during the hot days,  but we fully believe every effort made  to .stick to the attending to the necessary daily details for success.'will be  well repaid in the increased results  that cannot help but be evident whtilths chicks come to maturity.���������A.

As a matter .  of fact, he certainly^ is in total darkness, but he is unconscious of same.  The reason he is unconscious is that  the eye is incapable of removing a certain view from itself until an eighth of  ..second has elapsed. So the view seen  just* before the ball goes into eclipse  continues to be seen for an eighth of.-.  second. But as the eye is not covered '  by the lid as long as this, a new view  arrives to supplement the old view before the old one has vanished.

British Heroes  The Brave Six Hundred Who Died in  Silence  Writing home to his daughter from  the Dardanelles, a member of the  French, Expeditionary Force describes  in a letter, reproduced by the Matin,  how he saw 1-I.M.S. Majestic go to  her doom.  It was about G.35 a.m., he says,  when the battleship was struck. As |  soon as she was torpedoed by the i  German submarine she heeled over in  an alarming fashion till she had a"  list of about 45-degrees to port-  Everything on deck fell or slid with  a tremendous din and" whatever was  not attached was thrown iuto the sea.  But I owe to the truth to say that  there was not a single instant of  panic' and that many of the seamen  ���������who, recognizing the imminence of  the ���������danger, had undressed waiting the  critical instant with calm.  They had not long to wait, for four  minutes after the explosion the Majestic abandoned her inclined position  and turned completely over aud went  down, the forward keel alone enlarging.  It was a terrible moment, but it  was also sublime when six hundred  men, facing death mute and strong,  were thrown into the sea, covered and  caught in the torpedo nets which ensnared them like an immense cast-  net among the gigantic eddies of their  annihilated battleship.  British Valor Unsurpassed  British courage, was never more  gloriously exhibited than it has been  by the soldiers and sailors of the empire during the present conflict. The  long roll of", British victories in the  past centuries was never embellished  by nobler feats of arms than those  performed upon land and sea by British army and navy during the past  twelve months. Not Clontarf gave  greater glory to Irishmen than has the  ceaseless warfare in the trenches of  Flanders given the sons of the Emerald Isle.

Italy Bitter Against Germans  The bitterness which prevailed  against Germany in Italy as far back  as last September is graphically told  in a letter which the Prager Tageblatt  prints in its issue of June 1G.  A German business man stopping  in Milan, seeking a connection with  some business hous- in Italy, inserted  an advertisement to this effect- This  man was well known and respected  in Milan, where he had been doing  business for ten years. He was amazed when he received the following.re-  ply in Italian from a commercial concern in Milan:  "Only a German could have the audacity and impudence to think that as  a spy of the German General Staff he  could find accomplices jn Italy. You  infamous brigands, destroyers of  churches and torturers of thc wounded! May thc curse of our Clod annihilate your despicable country!"  German Cavalry Sent to Certain  Death by Heartless Commanders''-  Half a battalion of German soldiers  swung suddenly into a clear space between two woods. They came forward  ���������at the slow trot which is ordained  and practised for such adventures.  T'hc men in. the front rank had actually, locked arms, as if these most modern of warriors were pai;t and parcel  of a Macedonian phalanx. Their rifles  were not even held at the hips, much  less puf"to the shoulder," but were suspended by straps with the muzzles  pointing .upwards.and- backwards. The  reason was that the men had no arms  or hands to spare. The one arm was  locked in the neighbor's; the other  was Weld across and in front of the  eyes to hide the death,that was coming. It is needless to"add that none  of this sacrificed company dealt death  and all of them died.  The incident, was told to me by a  British officer who has seen as much  of the war as anyoueand has most deservedly ��������� made his name in the war.  He, gave the story in the course of conversation as an example of the: most  moving spectacle which had come before his eyes during the war. The  slung grille and the hands before the  eyes degraded the soldiers to sheep,  a sight to; distress another soldier's  heart, even though an enemy's. Why  the men were forced to this almost  passive immolation none could tell;  but apparently they represented a deliberate move in a concerted attack.  They were meant to die for an unknown end.  The attack failed, and the Germans  lost heavily. The obedience, to which  the whole nation is attached, was in  this case ruin. How very different is  the German soldier when his individuality is given play. "In the dodges of  trench warfare they beat us every  time," said the commander of one section of our trenches. Their, snipers  have exhibited a. remarkable combination of patience, scientific, precision,  and on occasion daring. The standard  plan is to watch for any movement  in the opposing trench; either at head  or above the trench or a flick of movement behind a loophole. Using a telescope, 'sight and fixing the rifle on a  rest and'."drawing a bead" oi- the spot,  the sniper will wait for an hour or  two till the movement is seen again;  and so accurate is he that a hit is almost certain. We have tested this accuracy again and again with dummies  and movement of paper or stuff behind loopholes. I do not suggest that  the German snipers are better than  ours; but I am quite sure that they  have an easier quarry.

Great Britain  Getting' Inventions  Thousands   of   Offers   Have   Been   Received   Since the   War  Began  The appointment of an inventions  hoard of scientific men, with Lord  Fisher, recently first lord of the admiralty, as its head to assist the British navy, was largely the result of the  suggestion made by Lord Bryce. former ambassador to the United States, to  the house of lords and following upon*  a discussion in which similar proposals were made by Sir William Rah~  say and other eminent scientists.  Lord Bryce pointed out that the  country needed not only fighting men,  but should mobilize its inventive ingenuity in chemistry, mechanics, engineering, physics���������the whole range  of science. .While the American navy  was a few days anead of the British  in launching this plan, according to  the cables, its. inception in both cases  was due to the lessons of the war.  The admiralty received 1C.000 offers  of new scientific devices during the  first five months of the war. Many  were from Americans. Another 16,000  doubtless came under 'the stimulus-of  the last five months. Of the first  10,000 a hoard undertook to sort the  wheat from the chaff to eliminate the  "crank" proposals, and reduced to 25  the number which, in the board's -judgment, were worthy of any attention.  Another board has scrutinized these  25 more rigidly, and reduced them to  just two. These two are being worked out with.every precaution of secrecy, and every prospect, it is declared, of giving a surprise in mechanical  warfare exceeding anything produced  by German ingenuity.  "Elaborate trials have been made of  one of these devices in English waters  aud in actual service at the Dardanelles. Rigid secrecy has been observed as to the details, but. it can be said  that the trials give promise of rendering a battleship immune from the  submarine torpedo.  "I have talked with many scientific  men, and they are ready to give their  best efforts in devising all the manifold requirements of this, extraordinary war���������a war of science had  developed in-the .ah; the water, beneath the water, and in every conceivable way, as weir as on the fighting line," said Lord Bryce, referring  to his suggestions. "It is the scientific men who use their brains in thinking out the remarkable devices which  are revolutionizing modern warfare,  and then the ordinary agencies of  government merely carry out and apply what science'has devised. It is  the same in war as in peace." The inventive genius of men like the late  Prof.; Langley of the Smithsonian Institution���������the -pionee-'._ of':- aviatiou;  and Bell and Edison, and many of  our own men, points the way to some  great achievement in controlling the  forces of nature, and after that it  remains only for the ordinary  branches of government 'or commerce to apply what the scientific  brain has.conceived."  intmciit  -.'tually cures even thc worst  cases of itching, bleeding and  protruding piles we know for a  certainty, because of experience with thousands of cases.

"I had heard so   much    about Mr.  Lloyd  George,"  he  said,  "that I naturally expectedto meet a big man in  every sense;  but, as you can see for,  yourselves,    he is very small in sta-'  ture." ":  Many an orator would ..have been  grievously upset by such an unfortunate beginning to the proceedings, but  not so Mr. Lloyd George.  "1 am grieved to find," he said, with  mock seriousness, "that your chairman is disappointed in my-'size, but  this is owing to the way you have  hero of measuring a man. in North  Wales we measure a man from his  chin up. but you evidently measure  him from his chin down!"  After that, the chairman made no  more personal remarks.  Sign Letters to Soldiers  The post office department calls attention to the fact that letters addressed to soldiers at the front  should be signed by the writers in  full. Where letters signed by Christian name only cannot be delivered  owing to the address being missing,  wounded or dead, it is impossible for  the Cnnadian postal service to return  thorn to the senders.

About  SO per of all diseases   will   be   cured  without any aid, simply by   leaving  them   alone     This explains why so  many people are positive that they  were   cured   by   Christian   Science,  patent medicine, or such and such a  physician.     No matter how   absurd  tbe treatment, the p'ltient   will  give  it credit for making him   well, if he  recovers   while   under   its   iej*ime.

Certain   charges   were  made   in Manitoba against Sir I'od-  mond Roblin and his associates   Sir  Roblin denied them.    A royal com  mission was   appointed   to   investigate. Sir Roblin and   his  associates  are now answering criminal charges  in a magistrate's court:   The charges  made by "Tbe Crisis" first appeared  in   the   B. C.

This is what  our friend along the street has to say  today in the course of a criticism of.  the proposition submitted by the unemployed committee:  "In discussing questions of this  nature very many people think of  the government as something apart  from the people, forgetting that any  government is a committee of citi  zens to whom is entrusted for the  time being the administration of the  affairs of the community at large.  The government has no source of income except what it gets from the  community,and if it pays out money  for any purpose it is public money  that is so paid. This is a good thing  to remember in connection with  other things besides the relief of the  unemployed."  Quite so; and we are sure that the  government never iorgets that it is  spending the community money instead jf its own. For instance, the  enormous commissions which were  paid to political friends on land  deals might have been saved bad the  ministers forgotten that the were us  ^ing community funds/ Under the  impression that they were spending  their own, they would have been  most vigilant and careful.' We know  they would not have j|hired Col.  Thomson to superintend the work at  Stiatcona park at $15,000 per an  num. But while the goveanment  always remembers that it is using  community money when it is spending extravagantly, it forgets to account to the community for the way  in which it does the spending. In  the last ten years the government  has spend probably $100,000,000  . and the public accounts committee  of the legislature has held but one'  meeting, and that was a farce.���������  Victoria Times.

Since the Centennial Exposition of  187G, we have been represented at all  international expositions���������the Colum-  ' bian, Chicago; the Pan-American, Buffalo; the Japanese, Osaki; the Paris  Exposition; the Louisiana' Purchase,  St. Louis;  the Liege Exposition;  the  ,.Milan, Exposition; theDublin'-Exposi-  -tion; the Entente Cordiale Exposition,  London; the" Alaska-Yukon, Seattle;  the Brussels Exposition; the Festival  of Empire, London; and, lastly, the  Client Exposition, Belgium.  This yaar7 at San Francisco,' according to all accouuts, Canada has  surpassed previous records. In opening the building, Hon. Martin Burrell,  minister of agriculture, stated that  the object of the exhibit was "To illustrate the character of our natural resources, to portray their development,  and to reflect the activities of eight  million people."  Canada lias a special exposition  staff, which constitutes a permanent  branch of the department of agriculture. Experts, under the supervision  of Coinmissionei*-General -William.  Hutchinson, collect and prepare the  various exhibits, .which' are gathered  from-all "parts of the country and become the property of the government.  Our success at international expositions has done much to proclaim the  advantages and resources of Canada,  and is a most valuable stimulus to im-  m igration.   ���������....         ,���������'-..,.,��������� -;~    ----- ���������--  The Cauadan Pavilion at San Francisco covers an area of 70,000 square  feet, and required 2,000,000 feet of  lumber in its construction.

Canadians Must Advertise  The Toronto Globe makes very apt  comment on the plea of the recent  manufactures* convention for larger  patronage of Canadian industriss by  pointing out that when the convention  was sitting fa Toronto more newspaper space was carried in that city  by a single departmental store advertisement than by all the advertisements of Canadian manufactured  goods. If the "made-in-Canada" niove-  .meut is to be helped along, it is apparent that the manufacturers must  get after business in the same way  that their foreign competitors do*- If  large purchases are made from  abroad, it is mainly because of tiic  more extensive advertising methods  that thc outsiders looking for Canadian business adopt. It. is not enough  to turn out the right kind of goods.  There are problems of salesmanship  as well us of production. The manufacturers have to learn the same lesson as did local merchants exposed to  competition from large centres. A  local store that advertises* well never  has to complain about outsiders cutting into it.j proper field.���������Edmonton  Journal.

"The lad," he goes on, "reached the  solitudes of Labrador alone, unfriended and poor, having travelled hundreds of miles on snowshoes. It was  the loneliest outpost of a lonely land.  Canada, three-quarters or a century  ago, was, still an undiscovered country, far more remote than Australia is  today. Tho sailing vessel that carried  young Donald thither had occupied six  weeks over the journey, and it was  not until later in the year that the  .first" passenger steamer from England,  the Great Western, arrived in New  York harbor. West of the settlements  on the St. Lawrence there stretched a  solitude to the far Pacific shores.  Over the vast territory, afterwards  known as the province of Rupertsland  ���������the Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan of today���������the Hudson Bay Company held dominion. Here and there,  but at incredible.intervals, a little fort  of the company was... planted in the  trackless wilderness���������one, as it were,  in Kent, another in Lancashire, a  third in Scotland. Outside these tiny  shelters, the primeval forest and the  wandering Indian. One of the chief  of these oases was Fort. Garry, with  a-white population mimoering a few  score. Today Fort Garry is the great  city of Winuipeg, the .centre of the  chief agricultural industry in the  world.  "But Donald Smith never faltered  for a moment. He had reached middle  life, and an -affluence that would have  iuvned most men's thoughts to repose.  Thirty years of work and thrift  brought him out of the wilderness and  made him 'tlitj financial king-of Canada. He was supreme in thc great  company that had held half Canada in  -f.?e,-but" had now surrendered -its sovereignty to the state, and through the  Bank of Montreal he controlled with  Lord Mount-Stephen the only resources at all adequate to thc enterprise.

At every crisis, as was  said of a greater man in a greater connection, 'hope shone in him like a pillar of fire when it had gone out of all  others.' There was one such occasion  when it' seemed that the difficulties  were finally insurmountable. Donald  Smith, then in England engaged in  communicating his own confidence to  financiers, received a long letter from  the company couched in teems o������ d3S**  pair. He cabled back one word. It  was a Highland clan cry, 'Craigel-  lachie,' meaning 'Stand fast.' And  then finally the victory was won, and  the -two sets of constructors met in  tlie Eagle Valley in the heart of the  second great ranges which had made  construction so difficult, the piaje was  named 'Craigel-lachie,' sud it was  here that 'Stand Fast' Smith drove in  the last spike that bridged r continent."

Discrimination        Against        Women  Should   be   Removed  Public interest has been awakened  by the circulation of petitions asking  for the removal of a serious injustice  iu the homesteading law. Women,  c\'cept widows with infant children,  are now denied hoisesteadiug lights.  The discrimination works injuriously  in many ways. A settler with a family of sons fan obtain a homestead  for each as he reaches the ago ot  eighteen. A settler with a family of  daughters is denied this right. One  result of this is the strong inducement to girls to leave the pioneer  farming areas and seek employment  in centres of population. The social  and other disadvantages of pioneer/  life arc thus augmented and permanent settlement discouraged.  The exclusion of women from home-  steading privileges not only weakens  the response to the cmsacie for a return to the land, but makes the homesteader likely to develop into an absentee. The man who performs settlement duties as if in an obstacle  race, without the intention of actual  settlement, but with an outlook for  speculative holding, is an obstruction.',  father than an aid to development.  Were the discrimination against women removed there woiild.be far less  of this class of homesteading. The  entrance of women into'many occupations formerly reserved for men has  not caused the social and economic derangements predicted, but has been  almost invariably advantageous from  the standpoint of progress and development- The change requested in  the homesteading law rests on a basis  of equity that is unassailable: Neither  on grounds of justice nor expediency  can it longer be refused.���������Toronto  Globe.

"-.Mentioning :the: Bagdad  railway, Sir John said one of tlie  first problems to be dealt with would  be the rani oval of thc great sand bar  at the entrance of the Shat-al-Arab  which obstructs the navigation of*  vessels even of moderate size.  .: Refering to the construction by  the Germans of the Ottoman-Bagdad railway to link the Anatolian  railway at Konia with Bagdad and  the Persian gulf, he said:  "Once Ave have peace and the Germans are out of control of Turkey  this railway should be completed  across the Taurus mountains on to  Bagdad and thence to Basra at any  rate, if not furthQr on to Koweit.  With the railway completed and a  direct line of only.some 450 miles in  length from Bagdad through Damascus to Beyrut, huge trade would  be opened for the whole of this  Mesopotamia district and through  Basra to the Persian Gulf and the  East. As regards the proposed irrigation works held up by the war,  there is no doubt that any money-  expended on them would We amply  repaid, as in the case of the great  works of the Nile valley and the  Chenat valley of India, and then the  Mesopotamia district should become  'one of the largest and best granaries of the world.'

"Half a dozen -Sisters of Mercy arrived at Petrograd after a threa  weeks' journey from captivity in Germany. They were taken prisoners  -with all their wounded in a field hospital during the earlier fighting ia  East -Prussia.

This decision has been  reached after consultation between  the leading men .responsible for the  preparations. , In the midst of a terrible conflict it did not -appear seemly that public rejoicings should be  encouraged. This part of the program, accordingly, has been postponed till a more: convenient season.  When the war is over and peace once  jnore reigns throughout 'Europe the  festivities will be held on a scale that  Till not only voice Canadian sentiment  toward the great republic to the south,  but also give full vent to the feelings  of relief that the most terrible war in  the world's history has heen' brought'  to a close.':  Tho Canadian Peace Centenary association���������which, by the way, is not-!  .and never has been a "Peace Society"  ���������has Just issued a pamphlet . which  sheds an interesting light on tlie temper prevailing between the Canadian  ������nd American peoples. \The ratification of the treaty of Ghent took place  on February^l7,. 1815, and on the  centenary date great numbers of mes;  Eages were exchanged between the  president of the Canadian r'eace Centenary association* Sir Edmund Walker, and the governors of the States;  between cities and towns ..on both  Bides of the line;' between boards of  trade,  and   even  "between  individual  the border. These arc printed in the  pamphlet, and bear "witness to a cordiality of spirit which affords a welcome contrast to the dark animosities  which make other , continents so  dreadful a spectacle today.  These messages display a wonderful  unanimity of conviction, and it may  b8 added that many ot those' from'.the  neighboring republic convey the  heartiest good wishes for the success  of our cause. Another feature of the  pamphlet is the description of theser-  'vices held ou-.'Sunday> February 14, in  an extraordinary number of churches  in both countries.  The public celebrations of this triumph of reasonableness and good-will  should; be one of the earliest events  after the" conclusion of. the present  dreadful struggle.  In .the meantime the most important part of the program is being carried through. The education of public opinion and ��������� the cultivation of a  reasonable attitude of mind in the  concfuct of international relations';are  being emphasized. ��������� ,  The mayor of Cleveland, replying to  a-message from Toronto, says:   ;  "The preservation of peace for 100  years between two great peoples with  an unfortified boundary of -4,000 miles  is the-greatest achievement in the  history of nations. May the next 100  years further strengthen our cordial  good-will, and may our example teach  men everywhere the possibilities of  permanent peace with honor."  Prices Still HigKer  Cost of Living Has Gone up Since tho  War  The annual report of the department of labor on prices of wholesale  and other goods during 1914 states  that "the factor which chiefly affected  Canadian prices during the year 1914  was tht outbreak In August of- the  great European war. .From January  until April the general price level was  Bteady with a slight tendency upward;  thereafter there was a decline of two  points in thc index number, during  June and July, the latter being the  lowest month of the year. The war,  however, at once'caused advances of  about seven points, and though there  was a reaction almost immediately  and although the year ended on approximately the same level as it be:  gan, the effect on the average for the  IU months was a rise.. The depart-  . mental index number) (which includes  272 commodities) stood at 136.1 for  1914, compared with 135.5 for 1913,  and 134.4 for 1912, these numbers being percentages of the average prices  prevailing* during the decade 1890-95,  the period adopted by the departments as the basis of comparison. Tha  point reached in September, namely  141.4, was the highest recorded by the  department since 1890. v  The chief increases for the year as  a whole appeared in the groups,  grains and fodder, which rose 14-per  cent.; animals and meats, 6 per cent;  woollens, 8 per cent.; hides, 10 per  cent; , drugs and chemicals, 7 per  cent. Raw furs declined 33 per cent.,  fuel and lighting 6 per cent, and cottons 5 per cent. Food prices return  ed to the high levels that  in the latter part of 1911 and early  1912. Meats were on a high level  throughout the year, but showed  much weakness, in the last three  months-  An appendix to the report gives the  average retail prices of some 32 articles of food and~"~of coal,j wood and  coal oil, and the rent of a representative workingman's dwelling in each of  the localities of the Dominion having  a population of 10,000 and over for  each year back to 1910. A statement  showing the average weekly expenditure of a typical family of five on  these staple commodities gives thc  cost of a budget of food at $7.73, as  comnared witii .$7.33 in 1913 and 1912,  and  ?7.11 in 1911, ancl $0.95  in 1910.

They were  eight to one against us, but our men  held out. Today no troops on the  whole batflefront have a better reputation for courage, fighting ability and  reliability than have the Canadians.

Future   Industrial  Prosperity  Depends  on Co-operation, Says American  Pape.-  A farmer-banker conference has no  ordinary significance at this time- It  is an opportunity to bring a lagging  public opinion up to date. Free ancl  easy America, willingly or unwillingly; must pull itself together for future  industrial prosperity in much the  same way that Europe in waging the  war. The enormous advantages of  national co-operation will accrue to a*  country at peace as well as a country  at war, is it to be supposed for a  second that Great Britain will .let  Lloyd George go at the end: of the  war in the face of the trade machine  that the Gerinan government has perfected?  Co-operation that Americans have  so voluminously talked about and ro  generally neglected has now become a  necessity. Business men, legislators,  producers, and consumers must organize if the United States .is; to ..take, a  position in proportion to its size,  riches, ability and resources. In an  age of world co-operation an exaggerated individualism must not confuse  democratic progress. When America  was sparsely settled with hunters,  herders, and farmers 'individualism  was a practical and natural love. Now  ���������millions', of mouths are to be fed and  hands-kept busy through industrial activity in domestic and foreign trad������.  If the German government organizes!  one of those efficient combinations  known as the cartel, to sell pencils in  Peru, then the merchants of this country must do the same- .-���������':.- ---p J  : But it does not mean that the American government is suddenly. to become paternalistic or develop, into a  state socialism. If the intelligent...in-j  dividual accepts the new co-operative  world and the banker will work, with j  the farmer not for immediate but ultimate .gains, public opinion will never  impose upon him. Co-operation in  place of individualism does not run  counter to any democratic principles  or theories, but merely puts them ou  trial again. Can an individualistic  democracy adapt itself 'intelligently to  the methods that will bring the greatest prosperity to the country?  The farmer-banker method of working out-the problem is in. harmony  with the best traditions of democratic  Americanism.���������Chicago Tribune.  ON DIFFERENT FOOTING THAN  OTHER NATIONS  The Influence Which Drew Russia and France into  the  Conflict  Were Irresistible, but Britain Was not Immediately Involved  ���������Fighting to give Every Nation a Right t6 Exist  Shortage of Labor  A  Famine of Unskilled Labor is Pr2-  dicted  According to C.P.R. advices there  is likely to be a shortage of. farm labor in the west in the fall. There  are alrealy over 100,000 of our Canadian young men under arms, and  the war may demand more. Immigration is, of course, at a standstill.  It will be impossible to get men from  the oast, where- men are scarce, and  men who, after the hardest, would be  a burden on the people.  The question is, where will the men  come from? The press is advising the  farmers to hire men now and to hire  them for a year in advance. There  is indeed, talk of a fam.ne of unskilled labor in the fall. Many thousands of men, not merely from Canada, but the States, have left for  Europe, since the war started. Where  will the men come from, and particularly in view of the added acreage,  which will mean more labor, as there  is fully 30 per cent, of increase under  cultivation? The States expects the  largest crop in its history; and experts in the west insist that our crop,  if the favorable conditions are maintained, will be the largest that we  have produced. It is now the question of labor that is agitating the  minds of the farmers. Several towns  and municipalities have suspended  their programme of public work in  order that all the laborers possible  should be on the land for the harvest  Beginning to Wake Up  is in  Germany Now Realizes That She  Wrong  With  the  World  A neutral observer in the London  Times writes: A few Germans are  beginning to wot:dor what is the matter with Germany, or rather witli her  leaders, why everyone is l'aliing on  her and endeavoring to stab her to  the heart, why she has no friends, and  why she cannot keep the peace with  those hitherto neutral.  Germany today has so many hatreds to cater for, s������. many enemies to  damn, that she is ro longer equal to  the task, and there are many signs  that would tend to indicate a more  rober spirit is taking.thc place of the  "Gott strafe" fever) Genua- public  opinion is at the present moment the  most .inarticulate in Europe, the people havB never been permitted to  think politically, and international  polities are for the groat majority a  closed book. But each day reveals  more outspoken criticisms of Germany's foreign policy, and tie man in  tlie street is faintly beginning to realize that there must be a wide gulf between German "right" and that of  other people's.  During the month of April,  throughout central and eastern Ontario and western Quebec, no fewer  than 61 buildings were destroyed or  damaged  by lightning.  Farmers and Manufacturers  Effort to Bring Aboui More Friendly  Relations  One of the most important events  of the past year was the sympathetic  understanding which was reached between farmers-and manufacturers. In  discussing this, Canadian Fartn, a  weekly agricultural journal published  in Toronto, says:  "The farmer is not inherently antagonistic to thc manufacturing interests- While the basic industry in Canada is agriculture, the one is largely  thc complement of the other. The  farmer is depend .-nt upon the manufacturer for a large share of the equip-  meat necessary to successfully carry  on his farming operations. On the  other hand, the business of the manufacturer could make little progress  without a prosperous farming community aud increased production from  the land.  "The relations between the farmer  and the manufacturer, instead of being antagonistic, should be of the mo.jt  friendly character. To bring about  more friendly relations and greater  co-operative 4effort there must be  give and take on both sides."���������Industrial Canada.  It is a fact as uncicniahje' as it is  remarkable, that although but remotely connected with the imme liate conditions which precipitated the war,  Great Britain occupies today the position of greatest prominence in the  st.-uggle- The territory in which the  campaign is raging is not British territory and the number of men that  Great Britain actually has engaged is  much smaller than that of either Russia or France, yet, somehow the conviction lias forced itself Lome upon  the public mind t'at Great Britain  really has more at stake in this great  conflict than either of her allies, and  that the heaviest share of the tremendous responsibilities of the war rests  upon the British psopie. This thought  as expressed by one writer will meet  with acquiescence from all sides "in  the final analysis the task of defeating  Germany is not Russia's task, nor  France's ������������������' tsk, nor Italy's task, but  the task of the British people."  . In'casting about for possible reasons why the original order of prominence of the respective allied nations  in. this struggle, should have b.een thus  reversed, there arc several considerations ..which present themselves!  There is no doubt that German self-  complacency   received   a   heavy jolt,  when   Great   Britain    refused    point  blank, to countenance for a moment  the proposed violation of Belgian neutrality upon the part of Germany. The  Kaiser   and   his   associates   suddenly  discovered that the two nations were  as wide apart .a's'the poles,  in their  conception  of the  sacredness  of national obligations.    That treaty which  the   Prussians   had     schooled   themselves to consider but a scrap of paper  to 'be  repudiated  at will  they  found  in the estimation of Great Britain to  constitute a solemn obligation whose  inviolability must be preserved as inseparably bound up with the uatior-.il  honor.     That   Great   Britain    'should  .'en go the length of declaring war in  defense  of the  principle  involved  in  signing a treaty to -protect and to preserve   Belgian   neutrality,   upset   the  nice calculations which the Germans  had made, based on an elaborate espionage system, as to the probabilities  of Great Britain arraying herself with  the allies' against Germany.   This was  sufficient "���������"to arouse  Prussian ��������� choler  against    Great Britain, but does not  provide   a   sufficient   explanation   of  the maimer in which the British people have been singled out for special  hatred or why, having become one of  Germany's   enemies,   Great     Britain  should step up to the most prominent  position as Germany's chief opponent.  The     effective part played by  the  British   army   and   the   British   navy  during the first six weeks of the war,  was  undoubtedly very galling to the  German pride/ The manner in which  the British fleet, opportunely moboliz-  ed for review purposes, moved quietly  across the North Sea and took up its  position at the two point;  of egress  for the German fleet, thus locking up  that  fleet  upon  which  the   Germans  had stayed such fond hopes and the  manner in which the British navy in  practically unbroken  silence, through  .twelve-months, has  held that entire  Germany navy . r* helpless uz a bunch  of toy ships on a mill pend must certainly have constituted a most bitter  potion for the Kaisc: to swallow���������and  he appears to have been a rather poor  hand to take his medicine, even from  childhood.    Similarly,  the expeditionary  force  which Great    Britain  was  able to throw over into the north ot  France at the beginning of the war,  was of but small proportions, but it  performed prodigies  of valor,  it lent  confidence  to  the  situation  from the  French and Russian  viewpoint, it immensely helped to stiffen the resistance  with which the usnnan advance was  confronted and it played a most prominent part in keapinc thc Germans on  the   run   in   that   historic   retreat   of  General von Kluck from the very environs of the French capital. Throughout the ontire campaign on tlie wes -  ern  front, the  ever    growing  British  force, gathered from all parts of tlie  empire has constituted the k *y to the  position of the ali.es.   The Kaiser has  recognized the fact that a decisive defeat   of   tho   British   would   turn   iho  scales  in his   favor, he has  launched  the very flower of the whole Prussian  army against the,British, lines to compass that end���������but in vair.. Like a  very Nemesis on his track, British  courage, British perseverance and  Eritish lighting spirit will pursue tho  quarry to the end, the British forces  will be in at the t'eath and British  standards of honor will impress upon  th'j Prussian autocracy, in terms'thai  cannot be mistaken, that when Germany signs her name tc a scrap of  paper, she pledges the national honor,  from which once pledged, there is no  turning, aside, .whatever.the cost. Tho  effectiveness of the assistance which  Great Britain has been able to affor'i  rallies, has done much, to make tho  Germans particularly vindictive in  their attitude, toward the British.  The principles, in defence of which  Great Britain entered the war place  her upon a different footing from any  other nation involved. The influence  which drew Russia and France into  the conflict were irresistible from the  standpoint of national interests, bui  Great Britain was not immediately involved in those matters. Had Germany observed Belgian neutrality in  accordance with her pledged word, the  attitude of Great Britain would have  been materially changed. In entering  the war to redeem her pledged word  to protect Belgian neutrality, Great  Britain stands for a principle which V.-  self is invincible and a principle which  underlies the right of every nation to  exist. The Gernian rulers could not  have been conscious of the perfidy of  their acts ^ancb of, the fact that tho  unqualified, condemnation of all free  peoples rested upon those acts as did  universal commendation attend tho  splendid conduct of Great Britain. To  be thus humiliated before the world  in the light of the marked contrast  between British ��������� and German standards of honor, added fuel to the flames  of German hatred of Great Britain.  But  behind  all these  incidental or  secondary considerations, does    there  not Vie  one  fum'.amental  fact,, namely, that* to get at Great Britain under  favora.ble conditions, was the real, the  ultimate object of the whole German  policy of aggression.   No one supposes  for a moment that the conquest of Bel-,  gium and-France and the humiliation  of Russia would have compassed ^the"  whole plan that Germany had in mind  in precipitating this war. These were  necessary  steps  it  is  true,  but  they  were but the  intermediary stages in  arriving at the real purpose which lay.  beyond.    Tlie discomfiture of Franca  and Russia would have been followed  by an interlude of peace of sufficient  length to allow Germany to consolidate  her gains, to foster her strength and  to   complete   her     preparations,     for  launching the great purpose of all her  Herculean endeavors, namely, the pitting of German strength against that  of the  British empire in a merciless  murderous struggle for supremacy for  all time.    It"is because, the participation of Great Britain in the present  war forces the hand of Germany that  the pent up flood of German hate is let  loose upon the British    people.    Tho  game has got out of hand; the carefully laid  plans  of Prussian militarism  have been thrown out of alignment;  the    Hell-conceived scheme of world  domination by a Prussia.! Hegemony  has  proved  abortive;   Great Britain's  fealty   to  her  pledged  word, her un-  hestitatingly commitment of herself to  the  demands  of  national honor,  has  proven itself the invincible champion  of national security, and of the liberties of the world.  This it is which accounts for the  prominent position which Great Britain occupies in this great struggle.  The programme which Germany planned to carry out in two parts,s has  been precipitated in one great struggle  which Germany cannot hope to cope  with successfully. Consequently, because of the participation of Great  Britain. Germany finds herself face to  face with failure after generations of  elaborate preparation and the whole  brunt of her frothing hatred is hurled  upon the one nation above all other  nations, which she had planned to  humble, but which r-);a is now forever  debarred from even assailing separately, namely.
