There were about 1300  exhibits in thp exhibition building,  ond the quality of the fruit and  vegetable displays, if anything,"surpassed those made here in furmer  years All tLe -other departments  were well represented, and in all the  high standard set at previous fairs  was fully maintained.  The fair   was   officially   opened  Tuesday afternoon with appropriate  -  speeches by Mayor Acres and    Fred  A. Starkey of Nelson.  r\ ��������� The   individual   ranch   displays  were -particularly good this year,  rivalling tbe district displays of  former years. In thiscompetion A.  S. McKim was awarded first prize  of ?iO(.VJ7T. Lawrence second, and  the Big Y Orchard third prize  An Innovation- this year was a  baby show in connection with the  fair. Some of the exhibits looked  pretty enough to make the bachelors  . nnd childless married folks envious.'  The children's sports were held  on Bridge street Tuesday morning,  and ihey attracted the usual interest.  Wednesday afternoon the races  and athletic sports were held at tbe  fair grounds. Quite a crowd was  present, out the aftornoon's outing  was nuirred'by a lamentable accident.  The celebration closed Wednesday night with the inevitable dance.  . A Winnipeg wholesaler who  handles Ontario fruit exclusively  has been selling fruit direct from  the car' door to the consumer, the  prices realized being as follows:  Pears, in 6 qt baskets, 45o; plums,  6 qt. boskets, 45c; peaches, in 11;  qt. baskets, 60c; musk melons, SI 00  for case of 18.

Smelting ifc Power company on November 1 will pay the regular quarterly dividend of $2 per share, or  $299,970, to stockholders of record  October 4. This will make the payments for the current year $1,049.,-  894 and will increase the grand  total to'86,776,817.  -  The Granby company now is producing about 4,000,000 pounds of  blister copper monthly at its two  smelters in this city and at Anyox,  and informatiou received from  sources closely in- touch with the  management states that there is on  hand in New York enough unsold  copper and gold to retire the corporation's outstanding bonds, besides retiring all other claims.  IfEEiVlS FOR LOCAL GRO/y'LRS  Potatoes from northern Manitoba  are being shipped to Toronto.  tiome of tbe crab apples from  Naramatta are showing poor quality  It is said that the fruit crop in  ���������the Yakima valley will total 10,000  carloads this year.  It is understood that the buyers  for the Nash organization are now  in the Washington fruit districts.  Extru Fancy Washington Winter  Bananas are selling at $2 00 and  $3.00 in New York, and Fancies at  ������2 10 to $3.50.  Potatoes in Minneapolis were selling at 81 25 and 81.35   on, September   18.    A   good   many   cars from  Cai.adian points have  been snipped;  th^re this s-eason. J  The Spokane Fruit Growers' com-  Liberated Pheasants  Leo Mader, locaf game warden,  has liberated about a dozen more  ring neck pheasants on the . golf  links in this city. Three-were turned  out there a month ago, and have  frequently been seen by golfers. The  birds were placed on the golf links  because it will probably be necessary  to feed them this coming winter,  and that is the most convenient  place as well as a favorable spot on  account of the lack of snow along  the sides of the hill in winter.  Hunters are caustioned to exercise  cure in shooting grouse within two  or three miles of town, as the pheasants may wander away from where  they were liberated. The hen  pheasants may easily be mistaken  for grouse by careless hunters, as  they are light bgovvn or dark grey  in color, although they have tails  from six inches to a foot in length.  The cock birds are easily distinguished on account of their brilliant  colorings of rusty red, green and  purple, with a white ring around  the neck. Their tails are from 12  inches to 24 inches in length. There  is a closed season on them and the  fine for killing out of season is $25  for each .'bird.  .Mayor Acres and Aid. McArdle,  McCallnm, Schnitter and * Sheads  were present at the regular meeting  of the city council on Monday evening.  A petition for electric light was  received from the residents of the  Moir addition. Referred to the  water and light committee.  F. C. Anderson, city electrician,  tendered his resignation, to take effect on the 31st of October. The  council accepted the same, and the  clerk was instructed to advertise for  applications for the situation.  The chairman of' the board of  works reported that the sidewalk on  Riverside avenue had been completed and that the Yale bridge was  in need of repairs. He was authorized to have the same made.  In the matter of granting assistance to Bob Green, the cnuncil decided to grant any immediate assist  ance that he* might need, and the  clerk was-idstructed to lay the case  before the proper military authorities.  The pool room bylaw was recon-  sfdered and finally passed.  quiet way Emil F. Voigt has been  accomplishing big things in the  way of exploration and development work during the past summer,  especially since he had a compressor plant and other machinery installed. The various claims in the  group that constitute Voigt's camp  have been thorough explored by  diamond drilling, but, as at Copper  mountain, it is only ^recently that  actual mining has begun. So far  the ore bodies that have been developed are surprssing what was  expected from the showings made  by the diamond drilling.  AUTO CLYCCIST  LY H  Mrs. Alex. Fraser and daughter  May, of Victoria, arrived in the city  on Monday and are guests at the  Winnipeg hotel. The Fraser family  resided in Grand Forks about ten  years ago. Mrs. Fraser and daughter  came here for the latter's health,  which has not been very good  lately.  The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper will be dispensed'next Sabbath,  .October 1, in the Preshyterian  church at the close of the morning  service, 11 a.m. All members kindly  take notice. Members of any evangelical church who wish to partici  pate in the service will be cordially  welcomed. Sunday school will be  at 2.30 p m. instead of 10:45 a.m.  Bert Mlussetto, ,of Phoenix,  Sustains Fractured Skull  at Fair Races  MS OF II CI  The appointment of- a horticulturist is needed for this valley to  teach Peter A. Z. Pare tbe different  varieties of apples. Fie had two  plale exhibits at the fair, and both  were misnamed. He says he lost  two first prizes by his carelessness.  Bert Mussetto, a Swiss youth of  Phoenix, was seriously injured in  the motocycle race at the fair  grounds on Wednesday afternoon,'  and he lies at the Grand Forks hos- -  piial in a critical condition, although some hopes of his recovery  are entertained.  The accident took place when he  attampted to passtbe leading cyclist,  Arthur Walters, on the turn before  .leaching the home stretch in the  final lap. Mussetto was conveyed to  the hospital immediately after the"  accident. His skull was fractured  back of his head at the base of the  brain, and for twenty four hours  after the fall blood oozed out of one  of the ears He was unconscious  for six hours after being brought to  the hospital, and no one was allowed  to see him.  His parents in Phoenix were notified, aud they have since been at  the ipjured young man's bedside.  METEOROLOGICAL  Lieut. Robert F. Ey has been in  town for tbe last couple of days recruiting for the 143rd battalion, C.  E. F. This battalion expects to get  orders to proceed overseas within  the next couple of weeks, and only  requires a few more men to bring it  up to strength. This is a good  chance for any man desiring to get  away immediately without the necessity of spendiug a lung time in a  local training camp. Lieut. Ey will  be in town for a couple of more  days.  The general opinion in the city  appears to be that the William T.  Waterson, of Vancouver, reported in  the casualty list a few days ago as  killed in action, is not the former  city electrician of Grand Forks of  the same name. Mr. Waterson is  in the engineering corps of tbe  army, but as he did not leave Van  couver until sometime in June, it is  thought that he has not yet had  time to reach the front.  Harvest Thanksgiving services will  be held in the Methodist church on  Sunday, October 8. On Wednesday,  the llth, the men of the church  will give their annual Thanksgiving  banquet.

C  A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  .10 CENTS PER PLUG  Britain's Task  British   Navy   Has  Been  the  Strong  Right Arm of the Allies.  Much ill-judged criticism of England's part in the war would never  have been muttered had the critics  taken the pains lo acquaint themselves with thc facts. In" the first  place, Ihc most obvious sphere of  English actions at the beginning of  the conflict was thc sea. Her army  was small in comparison wilh the armies of her neighbors, but she had a  powerful navy, and il had been, fortunately, 'mobilized in home waters.  Thus ii was able to shut Ihc German  fleet in its own ports, to drive German .commerce from the ocean, and  to insure the safe transport of troops.  Thc last-named task was so essential  in the success of tlie allied operations  on hind lhat il is no exaggeration lo  say-that its fulfilment averted an irreparable disaster.  More than she did then England  could not have been expected to do.  She had neither the men nor thc munitions. Thus thc burden of the  iighl on the west front inevitably fell  on France. Thai was her allotted  duly, and nobly has she performed it.  ' Yet it must not be forgotten thai thc  English and Belgian troops, though  unable lp clear Belgian soil of the  Germans or lo hold the important  port of Antwerp against an overwhelming force, nevertheless held  the coast from Calais. ��������� From thc  Philadelphia Ledger.  Newfoundland and Canada.  Thc Christian ministry cannot  settle the policy. It is dependent  upon the voters. They, il is said, are  much more inclined to favor the  merger than they were twenty years  ago. Memories of past strife with  Ottawa have faded away. Where  scars were left there is much better  feeling than there used to be. Canada is not so much under suspicion  of being pro-United States as she  was then. Her record iu the "great  war" has convinced Newfoundland, as  perhaps nothing else could have done,  that the Canadian is loyal to London,  and lo all that city symbolizes in any-  pkwfc for imperial federation and unification. St. John's wauls the closest  sort of relations with the financial  centres of Montreal and Toronto, so  that Newfoundland's resources may  be developed. Thus it is that already thc press of Canada and of thc  Colony is busy debating a merger, in  which Newfoundland would surrcn'der  its autonomy and become a province  of a federated dominion.���������Christian  Science Monitor.

"That's right, chew the ray.' he  retorted. " Pull out. We're five min-  mci late already.'' j  Willie's part-Ms had to orlu'd his  playing down by thc tracks.

Tenacity of British Seamen  Captain   Commands  With   Uniform   in  Ribbons  Xow that there has been ample  lime for many of the wounded sailors in tho Jutland naval battle to  review and recount their experiences  we are in a better position to reverse  the spirit of the navy that overcame the stealth of the enemy.  A petty officer gives a thrilling  narrative of the "hottest moment"  on board his owi: ship.  "At my own gun," he says, "we  fired only one round, as after the  first shot the gun was put out of  action, and of thc gun's crew two  were killed aud two wounded, I myself only getting peppered in the  legs with bits of shrapnel.  "J tried to reload and hrA but  found it was useless. I then went  to the gun next mine, but it was in  a worse state, every man being lulled. As 1 turned away one poor fellow (a reserve man, about 50) asked me, 'Look, Tosh, what the Germans have done to me,' and before 1  I could answer him he jumped into,'  the sea. Poor chap, both his arms  had been shot off. I stumbled over  a young lad, who said, 'Give me a  fag till I am put straight.' Someone  gave him a cigarette and lit it for  him, and after taking a puff or two  he sank back dead. I saw his legs  were all right, but he had been shot  in the stomach and his legs were  paralysed. I noticed that the conning tower, bridge, and steering  gear had been blown away by a hugo  shell.  "Our captain had a wonderful escape. I sa\, him giving orders, as  coolly as though we were, at battle  practice, in his shirt sleeves, his coat  having been torn into ribbons with  sharpnel and the force of the -explosives.  "During this confusion our steering gear all gone and our boat practically helpless, we came into ..collision. I was pitched into ihe sea,  and found myself, when I came to,  being kep't.,afloat by my life waistcoat ancl lifebelt- After an anxious  time in the water I was picked up by  the   Sparrowhawk.  "While on board the Sparrow-  hawk we had a crowded existence.  It would be about three a.m., when  a German submarine came up on the  starboard quarter, and we* thought it  was all up with us. We got our only  two remaining guns to bear on her;  before we could fire she turned tail  and nipped away under water.  "Soon after this we picked up a  craft with twenty-seven men on her,  belonging to the Tipperary, with a  sub-lieutenant swimming by its^side,  as the raft would have capsized with  his additional weight. He had swam  with one hand clutching the ropes  hanging round the raft for some  hours, but was in better" condition  than several of the men taken off  the raft who had suffered from the  cold and exposure, some of them  having practically no clothing.  "We'had great difficulty in bringing some of them round. We were  much amused with one of the men,  who, dressed in a piece of serge  round his loins, was anxiously drying a number of ������1 Treasury notes  which he had saved, explaining to  us that he wat to be married on his  next leave, and that he ��������� hoped they  would not be spoilt. To his great relief they dried out all right, and  then he was able to take an interest  in his own miraculous escape.  The Control of Weeds  There   Is  No   Easy Way-to  Get the  Best o:  Weeds  Weeds are the robbers of the plant  world. They creep into the fields and  rob the plants of moisture, light and  Plant food.  They often crowd out good clovers  and grasses in our meadows and pastures.  Every farm boy should'learn thc  names and habits of all tho common  weeds. Whenever one is found that  looks as if it might prove mischievous it should bo promptly identified-  If nobody on the farm can do so, it  should be sent away either lo the  Dominion Agricultural Departmental  Ottawa, or to the Agricultural Department of the Family Herald for  identification and information concerning its control.  Among the commonest corn field  weeds is the grassy pest known as  foxtail. It is a kind of wild millet,  which' grows from seed and lives only  one year.  It is not a serious week except  when wot weather in June prevents  the corn-from being cultivated;  Smart weed has much the same  habits as foxtail. Like foxtail, too, it  is a serious weed in wet cornfields  and gardens.  Most of the common weeds which  infest cultivated crops live only one  year. They produce lots of seed;  these live long enough in,the ground  so that even after four or five years  of meadow or pasture they are .still  liable to do damage to cultivated  crops.  There is no easy way to get the  best of weeds. The crops should be  kept as clean as they conveniently  can. The laud hoe must be used as  a cultivator cani.ot be depended upon to destroy all the weeds. The  Dutch or push hoe is an invaluable  article for this purpose.  In some sections the weeds which  live from year to year* and* spread by  underground rootstoeks as well as  seeds are troublesome. Quack grass,  Canada ' thistle, horse-nettle, and  morning glory are the worst weeds  of^this type. These pests have about  ten times as much fight in them as  the  common  annual  weeds.  If they are cut off at the surface  of the ground they come up again  and'again. But if you keep at it long-  enough, you can kill' them. When  these weeds are ir. corn land the onlv  thing to do is to cultivate frequently  and then hand hoe several times. It  really takes too much work to get  the best of this kind of weed in corn.  A better scheme oftentimes U to put  such land in alfalfa or pasture. Frequent moving is hard  on them.  Pastures and meadows hava weeds  which* generally do not bother corn.  Sorrel, i;dock, ragweed, and buekhorn  are the common weeds of thi stype.  In alfalfa blue grass is a bad weed!  Most pasture anl meadow weeds live  overyear   after year.  Responsibilities of  Germany in Poland  Under   an International Obligation to  Respect   Life   and   Property.  To the polish societies of Chicago,  with their heartbreaking story of  conditions in Poland under thc German occupation, where " praclicallly  every child under seven years of age  had died of starvation" President Wilson replied that he had done all that  he could possibly do.  He has appealed to the British and  German governments " lo make concessions and allow this humane thing  (of feeding Poland) lo be done." Thc  British Government has offered lo  let food contributions go through the  blockade under guarantees that they  would not be diverted to military  uses', and that the central powers In  return would look after the starving  populations of thc Balkan Stales they  occupy. Germany has declined to give  any such guarantees.  It "is, therefore, Germany's attitude  which invites thc attention of thc  humane world in respect to starving  Poland. Germany, as thc conqueror  and .occupier of Poland, is under international obligations therein lo  "protect life r.ndproperty "���������-wc quote  from a recognized authority.  Germany is not protecting life in  Poland. ft Is" letting the life even of  little children starve away into death,  as these Polish societies tell the  President. Germany is shirking a  primary obligation cf thc conqueror  in' conquered territory, and it is not  willing to assume even a part of the  obligation, as in Serbia, in order that  foreign charity, with the help of ihc  enemy, may relieve it of that obligation in Poland.  Conquest imposes responsibilities  commensurate with its gains to thc  conqueror. No civilized nation can  evade thc one while clinging to the  other, and claim recognition as such.  But as in Belgium so now in Poland.  Thc appeal of humanity for Poland  lies in the direction of Berlin, and no  other.���������From the New York World.  eers  The World Cataclysm  ���������s.

The Socialist manifesto circulated in  Germany says: " War is the crime.  The starvation plan is only the consequence of this crime."  That relieves England of its reproach.  What shall be said of thc reproach  to Germany in the fact that, as thc  manifesto asserts, "all food in the occupied territory was requisitioned?"  Germany took the food of those  whom it conquered, allowed them to  he supported by the world's charity,  and made those thus supported work  atthc point of thc bayonet.

At a certain college in Iowa  male students are not permitted  visit thc resident female boarders.

There arc already  visible   elements  of accumulating  execration of war which    it    will only  need the coming of peace to cause to  burst out into demonstration such as  the world has never seen.    These elements are manifold.   ".Wc see them  in thc'unspeakable and almost unendurable human misery which 'the war  has  brought.

Wc see them  in  the  terrible reactions pf war upon thc very  devotees of war.     It is not necessary  to credit all the stories about Admiral  von Tirpitz being made sleepless and  haunted    by    thc    brave young men  whom   he    had    sent to a torturing  death beneath the sea.      But if they  were true thy would  only ' repeat,'��������� in  their  way,  the     experiences     which  made   even   thc.   Iron     Duke blanch  after Waterloo.      Wc know that such  a cold - blooded and professional vivi-  scctionist of war as Major Moraht* is  has had wrung froni him a moan of  grief over the  thousands of  German  and French soldiers perishing in front  of Verdun.     And wc know that the  Kaiser himself has been so cut lo the  heart   by   the   crippling  of  a     whole  generation   in   Germany   that   he   has  rend out: " I swear that I did not wish  this war!"    No; none of them wished  this  war.      As  Mr. "Oliver  writes  in  " The Ordeal of Battle," Austria did  not wish what has happened in consequence  of her ultimatum   to  Serbia;  or so.

The Automobile and the Newspaper  No one thing has been such a fac-  lor in popularizing thc automobile as  newspaper advertising. It has been  ihc one great force that has made of  thc automobile business what it is today. It. has spread the story of the  automobile to thc most remote corner. From an unknown factor of a  few years back, advertising has proved to thc farmer that he can't afford  to-be without one. It has shown thc  tired business man that his car is a  pleasant bridge between home and office, and thc doctor's "buggy" is now  almost a curiosity.  Millions have been spent in spreading this knowledge; yet it has returned thc automobile builder a hundredfold, and because this advertising has  created a market where none existed  ibcffere, the price of cars has slcadily  dropped, while thc quality has constantly increased.

The fact that it was not  more liberally patronized in no wise  detracts  from the greatness of the undertaking or  the  general  excellence of the exhibits.    But the  fact has  once   more been emphasized that in  this age it is well nigh impossible  to  draw  a  crowd without an adequate amount of advertising.    After  a  while men   at   the head of  public enterprises will realize that but a single-  country  publication,   no  matter  how   many  million subscribers it may claim to possess, is  able to give sufficient publicity to  an  exhibition  that  is  intended to attract people from  outside points.    To get up fairs for the  home  people is useless.  They all know what we can  grow in the valley.  It is to the people from a  distance, a great many of whom may be "from  Missouri,"- that we want to "show"  the wonderful productiveness of our soil, but this class  can only be attracted here by liberal and persistent advertising.  to construct and operate a zinc smeltei for  , tlie treatment of British Columbia ores. The  Eastern British Columbia boards refused to  affiliate with, the new British Columbia associated boards of trade at the coast. The delegates thought that the territory covered was  too large and that there might be a clash of  interest in which the interior would suffer.  That a Dominion trade conference, followed  by an imperial trade conference, be held, was  suggested by Fred A. Starkey, of Nelson,  who was nominated as delegate from the Associated Boards.- Thc officers elected are:  Fred A. Starkey, president; W..G. Tcrnan,  Bossland, vice-president; A. B. McKenzie,  .Rossland, secretary-treasurer; Jesse Kemp,  Rossland, assistant secretary-treasurer. The  principal boards of trade of the Boundary ancl  Kootenay sent delegates, but the lack of activity of some of thc boards in the districts  mentioned in not sending representatives was  strongly criticized.  The "smoker" and banquet tendered the  visiting-delegates to the Associated Boards of  Trade by the city council "and the board of  trade in tlie Davis hall on Monday evening-  was attended by about sixty-five people. Besides numerous good things to eat, drink and  smoke, a large number of very good speeches  were made. President Fred Starkey. of Nelson, was the orator of the evening, and he did  full justice to his subject.  The principal advantage of a large nose appears to be, that the possessor of it can poke  it into everybody's business and yet have  enough left for all the purposes for which that  organ was intended te be "used.  The chickenless hen usually does' more than  her share of cackling.  The Sun, at $1.00 per year, gives its-readers  three times more reading matter than any  other Boundary paper.

No other  Boundary paper can  give  advertisers this guarantee  It is the man who lacks ability who is continually attempting to shove himself to the  front. The man who is really capable is asked  to walk unobstructed to the platform.  Meeting of Associated Boards of Trade  The meeting of the Associated Boards of  Trade, held in this city on Tuesday last,  adopted a large number of resolutions and  recommendations. The next meeting will be  held in Nelson sometime during September  next. Among the resolutions passed were:  That British Columbia should adopt the "keep  to the right" rule of the road; that express  rates on cream in this province should be  placed on the same basis as in Alberta,' and  that the completion of the transprovincial  highway should be proceeded with. Premier-  elect Brewster was urged to appoint a minister of mines from one of the Kootenay or  Boundary constituenccs. Another resolution  asked that it should be made an offense for  any holder of an agreement to purchase land  from the crown to alienate the land before  having secured a crown grant. A resolution  adopted demands the abolition of the patronage and the establishment of a complete civil  service system.

D. MacLean, the  successful      Literal     candidate   in  Greenwood, to a .Vancouver Sun  re-  porter at the Hotel Vancouver a few  days ago.  Encouragement of the prospectors,  in Dr. MacLean'**   opinion, is some'  thing which-the new Liberal govern  mem should give serious consider*-  - tion among its first business and be  beli -ves assistance of  a  substantial  ���������nature to mining will be one  of the  benefits^ac ruing rom the overthrow  of the.old administration. No assistance   to   tbe   mining   indiwiry-was  given by the government   for years,  despite the fact that so 1 irge   a   pro'  portion of the province   is   miner-il  ized.    The prospector��������� ��������� m ,'n 0f in  liui-e    courage   and   resource���������has  neither been assisted nor encouraged  in the past, except by   the   light   of  his own hope, and Dr. MacLean, hav  ing lived so many years   ia   mining  eamps, has come into such closiTaiT  snciation with prospector and miner,  as well as .the mining industry, that  .he makes the suggestion that the  government would add greatly to  the prosperity of .the province by  giving the prospector the attention  he has failed to get in the .past.  About three hundred miners   are  now  working   around   Greenwood.  The Mother Lode mine is working a  large force and the smelter is   busy,  although not to its  capacity, owing  to a coke shortage with the   Mother  Lode. The smelter was closed down  for   some   time, and   when   it  was  ready   for   operation   again    other  smelters had made   coke   contracts.  The future of   the district, in Mr.  MacLean's opinion, is   very   brignt,  and   he   looks   for a steady growth  from now on, fur the district' is richly mineralized and the demand   for  metals brisk and a good price is ex-  pected to continue for a long  time.

C  saves a lot of  work'  Work of Boy Scouts  Good Advice Given by the Late Lord  Kitchener.  ' Once you are a scout you should  always remain a scout." Such advice,  coming from thc lips of one so great  and noble as the late Lord Kitchener,  commands the attention of all. Not  long before he went to his watery  gave he addressed a gathering of Boy  Scouts, when lie made thc above statement, and said always being a Scout  meant making oneself cflicicnt, doing'  one's best, helping other people,  and also serving one's rounlry.  " Bui," he said, " don't merely do this  while yon arc still a boy. Learn it  at that time and make it a habit, so  that when you arc a grown-up man  you still keep on doing i,t; you remain  still a Scout by doing good turns, by  doing your best, by doing your duty  before all other things, by doing your  duty even to death."  That thc Boy Scouts of the Western Provinces are " good Scouts," who  strive to live up to thc principals of  the movement, is fully attested in'thc  place they have taken, and arc continuing to take in the public service  of our country. Though not a military organization in any sense of thc  term, it is significant that out of 73  Scouts who at the outbreak of the  war were officers in'thc Winnipeg district, 55 arc now on active service. Besides these officers, 89 of thc other  Scouts have joined thc colors. On  account of age, the majority^ of  course, have been forced to remain at  home. But even these have striven  to uphold the name of the organization.  To have received the blessing of  thc Pope is thc good fortune of the  Boy Scouts of Uruguay in South  America. Judging from a recent le-  port of thc doing of the Scouts in  Uruguay, they merited this honored  'tribute/for they have been "going  strong." They have received the highest reward that Roman Catholics can  get���������the blessing of the Pope, together with his signed photograph. It  will be pleasing news to all Roman  Catholic Scouts to know that, their.efforts to make themselves good, efficients Scouts has thc approval of the  Pope himself.  Of particular interest at this time,  when boys in every part of the country are seeking to belong to the Boy  Scouts organization, is the test which  has .been set for the tenderfoot. It  is inlcrcsling-to note that no boy can  become a full fledged Scout until he  has passed thc test. ,First of all, he  must* satisfy the Scoutmaster of thc  troop he wishes to belong to that he  knows thc Union Jack; the right way  to fly it; and he must know how to  tic several knots. He must give his  promise to do his duty to God and the  King, to help other people at all  limes, and to obey thc Scout Law.  Thc Boy Scouts of England were by  no means thc last to send congratulations to Sir John Jcllicoc a-ft.cr the  recent big sea fight with thc German  navy. Immediately after the.- fight  Sir Robert"Baden-Powell sent a message to Sir John, congratulating him  on thc splendid victory gained by thc  fleet. The following reply was received: "Please convey to thc Boy  Scouts the sincere thanks of all ranks  of thc grand fleet, including brother  Scouts, for their kind telegram."

Canada After The War  From 1901 to 1911 agricultural production in Canada increased 33.8 per  cent., lumber production 54 per cent.,  mineral production 154, hunting and  trapping production 35, manufactures  142, railway earnings 292.9., and shipping traffic 128 per cent. From 1911  to 1914 progress in all these departments' must have been greatly accelerated. For the past two years we  have experienced a remarkable expansion in agricultural and. industrial  exports, consequent upon extraordinary crops and thc Allied demands for  munitions. - '  There wlil be a period of readjustment when war orders cease, but  there arc those who think'that the  Dominion will soon enjoy the greatest  prosperity in its history. In thc Monetary Times, Mr. Kingman Nott Robins, vice-president of the Farm Mortgage Bankers' Association of America, says that Canada's period of greatest proportionate development in  primary production will succeed the  war, as was the experience of the United Stales after the'Civil War. Under preferred trade relations with the  oilier parts of thc Empire and with  the other parts of thc Empire and  with thc Allies, this country will have  advantages not enjoyed by thc Republic after its long struggle^ Imnii-  gralion conditions also promise to be;  highly favorable in this country.

IL is an old notion that land seeded  to timothy, even though the crop be  removed, is being rested aud improved. This, however, is not true in any  other sense than that a hprse that has  been driven rapiuly may be considered as being rested by being driven  more slowly���������that is'to say, timothy  removes the! plant food from the. soil  more slowly than does corn or wheat  because a smaller amount of plant  food is-- required to make the crop.  While the laud js in timothy the soil  surface is washed out less rapidly,  because the surface is bound together throughout the whole year by  the roots of the timothy plants. The  humus is also burned out less rapidly  since there, is no cultivation.  The notion that timothy actually  improves land doubtless grew out of  the fact that when timothy sod was  p'owed under and the land was planted to some such crop as corn a larger  crop was produced than the same  land would have borne had it been  in corn continuously. This is because,  the plant has removed plant food from  the soil less rapidly than this food  has become available in the soil by  chemical processes. Investigations  also show that a crop of timothy will  leave in the soil in the form of roots  and stubble over seven pounds of nitrogen to the acre against about two  and five-tenth pounds per acre fox-  wheat. All this becomes available  for succeeding crops when the meadow is plowed up.  KEEP CHILDREN WELL  DURING HOT WEATHER  Every mother knows how fatal the  hot summer, months arc to small children.

C  ALLOWANCES FOR THE MEN AND THEIR FAMILIES  Government Commission Aims At Benefiting Not Only Disabled  'Members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force, but also  Disabled Reservists of the British and Allied Armies  Wc Canadians arc absolutely unanimous about one thing in this war  ���������that justice ancl reparation must be  ���������secured for those who have suffered.  Thc men who have volunteered to  light for us, while wc have stayed  safely at home,���������these men, coming  back shattered and lorn, or with  health in any.way impaired^ by their  service, musL have reparation, and  from  us.  It is thc first word' of justice; and  there is no Canadian worthy of the  name who will not 'agree to it with  all   his  heart.  Our head as well as our heart,  however, must be employed to devise  a form 'of reparation that will really  repair���������that will as far as possible  make up lo these men what thc-y  have losi;  From thc beginning of the- war il  was recognized that a man offering  his" body to defend our cause should  have compensation for any injury his  body might suffer in thc carrying  out of that task. A scale of pensions  was adopted both for disabled soldiers and for , their dependents in  "proportion lo the degree of disabil-  ily.'v A revised scale, involving a  large*- increase of expenditure, was  lately agreed to by a Parliamentary  Committee and is already, in force.  A pension alone, however, will, not  restore the injured man to his place  as an active and useful member of  the community; and that has got to  be done, by some means or other,  both.in the community's interest and  in his own.  A very few of thc injured will be  found so totally helpless that this  lcsloration is impossible. On . the  other hand, judging by our experience so far, a large majority, in  spile of their injuries, will still be fit  for their former work. But between  these two classes will be many men  with injuries cither handicapping  them seriously in their old occupations or barring them out altogether.  Such men must not be condemned  to     perpetual     usclessucss. They  would 'not thank us for lhat. _ They  aie not of the backbonclcss kind, or  they would hardly have thrown themselves into thc war. They did not  enlist to be coddled or spoon-fed, and  they will not want-to be coddled and  spoon-fed now. Having recovered  their strength, they will naturally expect to use it. Thc question simply  is���������How? - '  To begin with, their disability can  often be lessened by what is called  "functional rc-cducalion." By special exercises, with or without the  aid of thc ingenious apparatus invented for the purpose, the muscles mutilated bv wounds and operations,  and weakened by compulsory disuse,  can recover some of their strength  and become once more accustomed  to exertion. Then, by "vocational reeducation," the men can be enabled  to return lo their original trade; or,  ~ when that is impossible or undesirable, they can be helped to fit themselves for another occupation. There  is no intention, by thc way, to provide rc-cducalion tor men who do not  need it.  Thc Parliamentary Committee decided that thc cost not only of pensions and artificial limbs, but also of  this vocational training should be  , pa'id by thc Dominion Government.  ' Thc Military Hospitals ancl Convalescent Homes Commission, with  Sir James Loughccd at its head, has  already given a great deal of consideration to the matter, and has taken  steps to organize the training required in many parts of thc country.  Thc complete establishment of thc  system may be expected very soon;  for the Government, by Ordcr-in-  Council, has just adopted a report of  the Military Hospitals Commission,  of "which wc are enabled to give this  summary*,��������� '    , .  .  The report begins by explaining  that the Commission aims at benefiting not only disabled members of the  Canadian Expeditionary Force, but  also disabled reservists pf the British  and Allied armies who were bona  fide residents of Canada when thc  .���������war broke out.  The Commission has received the  assurance, it tells us, of the active cooperation of the provinces and various municipalities in carrying out  such a policy. Technical Schools,  Agricultural, Colleges and other public institutions have agreed to receive  disabled men for training, ancl many  offers have also been received from  private commercial establishments to  provide training and subsequent employment when the men have become  proficient.  Thc period of training for a new  vocation will vary according to the  previous education and industrial history of each individual. Thc cost of  tuition will vary in consequence, and  also owing to thc fact that in many  cases thc tuition will be free or the  fees nominal. (The training will be  free to thc men in all cases. If there  is any charge, it will be paid by thc  Dominion Government.  Thc Commission has already undertaken thc provision of training in  .general subjects and elementary vocational work for all men under treat  ment" in thc various hospitals ancl  convalescent homes., operated by thc  Commission, irrespective of whether  or not such men will later be subjects for vocational training lca'ding  to new occupations. In a few cases,  ,'nr.'ingcnu"i!s have also- been made  for that special  training.  Thc Commission was not able,  however, to put into operation a general scheme of vocational training  until a scale of maintenance could be  arranged for the men undergoing the  training and for their dependants.  Thc Commission has therefore prepared a scale under which a small  sum for personal expenses will be  granted to the men undergoing training, while provision on a sliding scale  is made for married men ancl their  dependants, and for those unmarried  men who'may have persons^ legally  dependent upon them.' Here is thc  scale which thc Commission has now  been empowered to establish. It will  be understood throughout that "maximum age" means 16 for a son and  17 for a daughter:���������  , 1. A single man, wilh pension, living in, receives free maintenance;  that is,' board, lodging and  washing.  2. A single man, with pension, living out, 60c a day.  3. A married man, wilh pension,  living in, free maintenance ancl $8 a  month, with the  following additions:  For wife having no children, $35  a month, less her husband's pension.  For wife ancl one child, if child  is under five, $38; from five to ten  years, $39.50; from 10 to maximum  age, $42.50; less, in every case, thc  amount of husband's pension and  children's allowances under thc  pension  regulations. t  For- wife and two children, from  $41 lo $47 a month (less pension  and allowances), according to age  of children.  For wife and three children, $44  to $50 (less pension and allowances),  according to  ages.  For  wife ancl  four children,  $47  . to  $53     (less  pension    and  allowances), according lo ages.  _For wife ancl five children, $50 to  $55 (less pension and allowances)  according to ages.  ^ For wife and six children, $53 to  $55 (less pension and* allowances),  according to ages.  A wife with seven or more children* under the. maximum age may  be given thc maximum allowance  of $55, less pension ancl allowances.  All these allowances for wife and  children will be paid direct to the  wife, unless otherwise thought fit  by* thc  Commission.  4. A married man living at home  will receive 60c a day. (This, of  course, is in addition to thc allowances for wife and  children.)  5. A widowed mother, if dependent entirely upon the unmarried son  who is receiving training, ancl if the.  son made an assignment of his pay  to his mother-and also arranged for  her to receive separation allowance  while he was on service, may be paid  at the same rate as the wife of a  married  man with  no children.  6. The parents of a man undergoing training, if both arc old and past  worl:, and entirely -or partially ' dependent upon him, may also be paid  r\l Mint rate.  7. The guardian of a widower's  children (under thc maximum age)'  will be paid monthly���������for one child,  $10; for two, $17.50; for three, $22;  and $3 for each child in evess of  three, with a maximum of $35.  ���������Payments under these regulations  will be continued for one month after the completion of vocational  training, whether thc 'man has secured  employment  or not.  It is  clear that   this  system  of al-,  lowanccs   will   enable   many  men   to  take advantage of thc training offered, by providing    for their    families  ( while thc training is being given.  [     Thc President of thc Military Hos-  ! pitals  Commission     asks    us  to  say  i that any  further information  desired  I by our  readers  will  be  gladly given  on application to thc Secretary, at 22  Vittoria Street, Ottawa.  lovies  Austrians True Teutons.  General Weber, commander of the  Austrian troops at Cctinje, Montenegro, alleges lhat General Ratomir  Vcchovitch, former Minister of War  of Montenegro, fomented an insurrection ancl attacked Imperial soldiers, killing an Austrian officer sent  to shadow the said Minister.  For this ������ct of war General Weber  "summons General Vcchovitch to  surrender himself as a prisoner with  in five clays. Otherwise his father  and brother, already arrested, will be  hanged." A warrant of arrest has  been issued against General Vcchovitch and his two brothers, and a reward of 50,000 crowns is offered for  their capture."  It is believed tlr.'.t they arc hi ling  in thc Albania Mountains.  As this is the first "order" of the  kind that has been promulgated since  thc war began neutral powers have  been appealed to to point out to Austria thc brutality of its threat,  Educational Film  Showing the Process  of Farming By Means ������  ��������� of Irrigation.  At first glance thc motion picture  business may not seem to have vcry  much connection with agriculture,  except in so far as it tempts the farmer's sons and daughters into town  an extra evening each week, or sets  up in the mind of sonic boy well titled to become a successful farmer an  ambition to emulate Mr. C. Chaplin.  But thc motion picture business is  now related very closely to all our  arts ancl industries. It has become!  a great public educator as well as ,a  public entertainer, and thc education is thc moro subtle, ancl perhaps  more effective, because thc "student'-'  docs not know he is being operated  upon. He thinks he is being entertained���������that is what he paid h:s  money for���������whereas he is being deliberately and wilh purpose aforethought made familiar with facts, industries or places of which he"would  otherwise'. have little or no knowledge  Thc demand for the educational  type of film is one of thc bright fca^  lures in motion picture development.  Audiences may go wild over hilarious coined}', weep with injured heroines, or be stirred to fightingpilch by  great . dramatic spectacles, but the  normal appetite soon tires of these  excesses. They are all right as an  appetiser, but thc picture house  which wants the best class of trade  must give some solid food in thc  form of travel pictures of foreign  countries, pictures of manufacturing  processes, animal life, or curious developments of the' arts and sciences.  A United State's producer is now  engaged in getting up an educational  film showing the process of farming  by means of irrigation. The general  public have certain ideas, more or  less correct, of how ordinary farming is conducted, but even farmers  themselves in humid districts have  very vague notions of thc .practice  of irrigation. * They have a general  idea that irrigalipn can be applied to  small orchard lots, but they cannot  sec how it is possible over large  farms of wheat, coarse grains and :--  falfa. At thc same time, .the interest in agriculture, ancl the desire of  city people to gel "back to the land,"  were never more pronounced, ancl  this astute producer has recognized  thc fact thai a film showing the actual processes of irrigation and the  great settlement, possibilities which  arise from it will be an educational  feature of thc first interest.  The place chosen to work out the  details of thc film was the 3,000,000-  ncre Irrigation Block of the Canadian Pacific Railway in Southern Alberta, and a camera expert lias been  through that territory rcccujly getting the scenes, from,actual life Thc  film will ��������� show the source of thc  water, in the great glacier fields in  the Canadian Rockies above-Lake  Louise. The fact that the water  cames from glaciers is of great importance, as it makes the water supply independent of rainfall, and there  is no danger of a shortage of water  in a particularly dry season.' On Ihc  contrary, the hotter the season the  greater will be the flow of water, and  this is thc experience in Alberta,  ���������where flood time in thc rivers is not  in the -spring, but in June and July,  when the snow in the higher mountains is rapidly melting under the hot  sun.     -  From its source in the glaciers thc  water will be followed down the  beautiful valley of the Bow River,  through thc thriving city of Calgary,  and thence by means of the necessary engineering features, right on to  the* farmer's land. The principal engineering features to be shown will  be thc hcadgates at Calgary, where  water is diverted from* thc western  section of thc irrigation block. The  immense dam at Bassano, which  raises the water to an available  height for irrigation in thc western  section; thc -reinforced concrete  aqueduct across a two-mile depression at Brooks, _ and the enormous  artificial reservoir which has been  christened Lake Newell. Glimpses  will be shown, of main and secondary  canals, until the water is seen in  ditches on thc farmer's fields, and the  farmer, busy wilh shovel ancl canvas  dam, is shown diverting ihc life-giving flood over his fields of alfalfa and  grain. In the autumn thc film will  be completed by scenes showing harvest operations, grain in the bin, alfalfa in the stack, sl^ck dairy cows in  pastures kept ever green by irrigation, and prosperous farm houses  where the monotony of the prairies  has' been broken by wind breaks and  hedges of trees which grow up in a  few years as a result of the plentiful  supply of water.  So the movies will become a powerful instrument to turn attention to  thc open spaces, where by means :f  irrigation the uncertainty has been  largely removed from farm operations, and where happy and prosperous communities arc quickly^ arising  amid conditions as nearly ideal as  may he hoped for in this world cf  imperfections.

HUN FIGHTING FORCE BEING RAPIDLY DEPLETED  Estimated'That .Yearly Loss of Germany Since the Commencement or the War Has Been Four Times as Much as the  Annual Additions to the Army  Germany .at last has reached the  turning point where her fighting  force is being depleted much more  rapidly than .it. can be supplied wilh  new men, and 'military observers believe her entire reserves, which cannot possibly exceed 700,000, will be  completely exhausted within a very  few months. Reduced to figures, Germany is losing 100,000 men a month  in killed, incapacitated by wounds  from further service ancl prisoners, or  1,200,000 a year. Some authorities  place thc number al double these  figures. She is gaining from new recruits fewer than 400,000 a year.. This  leaves a net loss to her army of 800,-  000 men a year, a loss which cannot  be replaced.  Already Germany has called lo the  colors the class of 1917 to furnish  stock for slaughter ��������� "kanouen-  fleisch" (meat fdr cannon), Bismarck  used to call them.  Germany's population in 1910 was  64,925,993; in 1900 it was 5_6,367,178,  showing an increase of 8,558,815 in  the ten years. This docs not include  aNpopulalion of about 15,000,000 in  thc German colonics in Africa and  Asia, which were immediately cut off  on thc beginning of the war from  being of any use lo the mother country "from the viewp'oint of military  strength. Thc colonics of England,  France and Belgium, it may be mentioned, have, on thc other hand, been  a source of constantly increasing additions to thc military power of those  countries. Germany's average increase in population for thc ten  years mentioned was about 860,000.  There is a slight excess of male  births ��������� 1,060 boys to every 1,000  girls. This would give an average  increase of 443,000 males to 417,000  females. An estimated yearly addition of 400,000 men'to thc army out  of 443,000 born is certainly a very  liberal allowance  Regarding losses thc German official lists of casualties since thc war  began up to June 1 give 734,412 dead,  1,801,652 wounded and 338,522 prisoners ancl missing, a total of 2,924,-  586 for thc 22 months���������about 133,000  a month or 1,600,000 a year.  This yearly gross loss' is four  times as much as thc annual addition to the army by the most liberal  estimate . Assuming that forty per  cent, of-the -wounded return to thc  ranks/this would reduce the net loss  to 1,200,000 a year, against an annual  recruitment of 400,000. Even if all  the wounded should return, the dead,  missing and prisoners (600,000) outnumber the new recruits half as much  again.     .  It also should be remembered that  these figures' of 1,200,000 loss against  400,000 gain are thc most extreme  figures in".favor of Germany. Even  thc German staff, in a statement issued last month, asserted that it was  assured of only "30,000 recruits a  month as long as the -war lasted,"  which makes 360,000 a year, or 40,000  fewer than thc number above allotted. ) "  Concerning the strength of the  German army the Paris Libertc estimates the total at 4,247,000, of which  there arc ISO divisions of 20,000 men  each on both fronts and 647,000 left  as reserves. Swiss reports say_ that  the German reserves have diminished  this year by 50,000 and thc 200,000.  recruits have been added, making a  net decrease of 300,000 men. All thc  German reserves, according to thc  Agenzia Libera, cannot exceed 700,-  000 men, whereas there were more  than a million at thc end of 1915.  Contrary to her hopes aroused by  the Balkan drive, Germany can expect no help from Bulgaria or Turkey. On the contrary, she has been  obliged to keep 'men in Turkey, in  Bulgaria and in Austria.  Verdun is eating into Germany's  strength at a more rapid rate than  anv other event since thc war began.  Col. Fcylcr, a Swiss military expert,  generally recognized in Europe us  one of the most impartial and best  informed critics of thc war, estimates  that the Germans up to June 1 used  about 800,000 men at Verdun and puts  their losses at 350,000. Thc Paris  Petit Journal describes Verdun as  not a battle, but a surgical bloodletting on a grand scale, and says  that when the flow begins to slacken  another vein is opened.  One English observer is quoted as  saving of the slaughter here:  "I could clearly sec through my  field glasses ��������� the Germans moving  forward in mass formation. Suddenly  thc I'lciich guns opened and mangled  humanity was piled in windrows". I  thought'thc battle ended, but soon  at other line-in solid formation was  sent steadily forward and as they  started to pass over thc piled up  heaps of their dead and dying comrades the French cannon again blazed and ihc pile of dead and dying  looked a solid wall.  "I never had dreamed of such  slaughter, but thc sight that followed I think no man ever before saw.  High explosive shells began blowing  into pieces thc masses of dead and  dying. It seemed fiendish���������I wondered  that  the French    were so in  satiate���������when, horror of horrors, I  discovered that the high explosive  shells were from the German guns,  blasting the walls of dead and dying  that another line of German troops  might pass through and execute thc  German order 'Forward!' "  British estimates place the German  losses at Verdun for four months at    "  415,000 men; that is, 65,000 more than  .  Colonel' Fcyler's, estimate  of 350,000  up. to   June   1.    These  estimates  arc     s  based      upon .captured    documents,  statements    of prisoners    and  other  sources.      At    the    same    time    thc  French losses from the same source  were placed at 165,000 men in killed  and wouridcd.  VVitFi' a net loss'of 800,000 men a  year, Germany's present army of  4,000,000 men Would be exhausted in\  five years if. no other factor should  intervene. But while Germany's man  power is declining, that of the Allies  is growing. True, the French army y  is losing, though not so rapidly as  that of Germany, but thc British  forces are being constantly recruited  froriv-all quarters of thc globe, and  Russia has practically an inexhaustible supply. At the worst thc Allies  can maintain their present strength,  while that of Germany is bound to  decline^ at an increasingly arithmetical ratio.  s   The Larger Community  Spend    Your    Money    So    As    To  Make  Your Home Town  Grow.  The typical characteristic of a  progressive town is a keen sense of  the gains that may come from the  growth of a town as a whole Thc  people clearly sec that if they can  make their- town and its business  increase, every form of property and *  business -will go ahead. Furthermore, the net profit" in each case of  such increase should be larger proportionately than the gain in gross  returns. A larger business can often  be done without much increase in  experrse, leavinga greatly enhanced  net return.  In every progressive town, therefore, the merchants arc willing to  devote much time and thought to  making the town grow as a whole '  They do not*relax efforts to compete  successfully with each other.. But  the gains that come from the growth  of thc town as a whole come easier  and with less effort.  The first essential is to develop an  intense feeling of community loyalty.  It should be realized that everyone  who owns a business or any real estate is going to gain by the growth  of the town as a wdiolc. Also everyone who has a job in a growing  town is the gainer, though this  'is not always realized. In a growing town employers arc better able  to pay good wages, and there are  more opportunities for advancement.  The first step in community loyalty is to patronize thc home merchants. The man who sells supplies in your town is in a sense your  business partner. He is working for  ends that are vital to your success.  Every purchase made at home helps  on the town, helps make your property, your business, your job more  valuable, and hopeful of larger opportunity.  Spend your money so as to make  your home. town grow, rather than  so as to make some other place  grow. ^^   Parapet for Fresh Air.  Private Williams, who before the  war was a member of a London  News Agency staff, writes from  France: "There were some humors  in our relief of thc French. Wc were  told that you could sit up on thc parapet there without exciting the spleen  of thc Boschc, and, according to  other accounts, possibly rather freely translated from the French, the  death-roll statistics showed that as a  winter resort thc trench zone far surpassed the tranquil villages right behind thc line.  "It was really an exciting study in  psychology to note how thc enemy  arose from his state of torpor on  learning of our arrival. He lost no  time, but a lot of ammunition, in  making his introduction. Thereafter  wc exchanged greetings punctually  and generously."

Distribution of Seed  Grain and Totatoes  By instructions of the minister of  agriculture, a distribution of superior sorts of grain and potatoes  will be made during the coming  winter and spaing to Canadian farm  ers. The samples for general (li;-*tri-  butioh will consist of spring wheat  (about 5 pounds), white oats (about  4 pounds), barley (about 5 pounds),  and field peas (about 5 pounds).  These will be sent out from Ottawa.  A distribution of potatoes in samples of about 3 pounds will be car  ripd on from several of the experimental farms," the Central Farm at  Otrawa supplying only the provinces  Ontario and Quebec. All samples  will be sent free bv mail.  . Only one sample of grain and one  of potatoes can be sent to each farm.  As the supply of seed is limited,  farmers are advised to apply eady.  Requests received after the end of  December will probably be too late.
