"     -. -; ' -   -f  resident   en-  Tfee Mining Act.  After reading- the,--^Mineral  Survey and Development-Act,'  one-is forced to the ^'conclusion  that the bill is a "mistake, at  present, or untiLthe'minister-of  mines has had time'tto become  familiar with -the mining conditions and geography.,of the  province.-     - hy--.'*  The Act is diyided^into. five  parts.      , "      |3,       r  .'   .  Part I provides for a ^'Mineral1  Survey of"'the Province.". This  has already "been- dbn'e byv the  Dominion departmen{������pf mines  and the results published.* *"*  It is.also proposed to divide-the  province into six survey ������ districts, with a resident-mining  engineer located at each>district  ���������*sta������ion" or "center." Xlri som6  cases the permanent station or  center decided' upon .^vould. be'  the most inconvenient location*  for^ itv Two" distil* *��������� rJuty---sbv4'  cited: '  The Southern District is composed of Similkameen, Osoyoos,  Greenwood and ' Grand Forks  Mining Divisions, with the town  of Grand Forks, at the southern extremity of tho district, as  the -permanent survey station  or'center of tho district. The  grouping i<* bad, and displays  either ignorance of the .geography of the country or a desire to punish Osoyoos and  Similkameen districts for thoir  vote at the last election.  The Eastern Mineral Survey  district comprises Golden, Fort  Steele, Windermere, Ainsworth,  Slocan, Slocan' City, Trout Lake,  Lardeau, Nelson, - Trail Creek  Arrow. Lake and Revelstoke  mining divisions, with Revelstoke, at the extreme north of  the group, as' the permanent  survey station or center. In this  grouping a knowledge of topography, geology, mining conditions, shipping and transportation facilities, would been of  inestimable value to the minister of Mines. These mining-divisions should have been  grouped .into two districts with  Nelson as ono permanedt center  and Golden or Fort Steele as  the other. There are five hundred men interested in mining  who yisit Nelson on business to  every one who passes through  Revelstoke in a railway coach.  A Revelstoke paper says.editorially:' " That Revelstoke will  benefit both directly and indirectly- from the operation of the  provisions of the Act, if passed,  will be readily seen from a cursory review of the clauses of  the Bill." ^  But it is the mining industry  that is supposed to be benefitted,  not a particular town a hund-  dred miles distant from the  mining districts of Avhich it is  to be tlie survey "center."  There are, of course/many  good points in the proposed  Act. Prot6ction of .merchants,:  miners, and others from shoestring promotors is contemplated.  Part. II provides for aid to  prospectors. As there are no  prospectors left in the country,  this part of the Act is hardly  worth considering. The diamond drill clause might prove  a dangei'ous one in the hands of  an   unscrupulous  gineer.  Part V gives powers to the  Lieutenant-Governor; in Council that should be vested only  in the .representatives of the  people. The members of the  legislature by making Part V law  will give the lieutenant-governor in council powers that they  should not havo. Hero is the  power that would bo delegated  to tlieni by the representatives  of.the people:  "And every such, rule, order,  or regulation and the proscribing or every such fee "shall have  the same foi'ce and effect as if  expressly enacted  in this Act."  It would perhaps, have been  wiser for the-*minister not to  introduce amendments - to the  the Act until he became more  familiar with mining conditions  in Yale'and Kootenay. The  members for Grand Forks and  Revelstoke ridings can be pardoned for desiring" to have the  permanent survey stations in  their constituencies, no matter  how great an injustice r was  being done to other portions of  the groups. We are all more  or less selfish and inclined to  let the-other fellow protect his  own interests. That ignorance  on tlie part; of the minister is  the only"excuse that can be offered for the injustice being  done, to -the great producing  jcamps' of southern British Columbia. It is inconceivable that  the minister of mines would introduce legislation affecting the  greatest industry of .the province just to reward particular  villages for their .votes at the  last election. It would be ad-  yisiible to give'the proposed  legislation a year s hoist. In  the interval" the minister could  ivi.s.i,t\the4"prowducmg'_camps and  be in a-'position to introduce  legislation of real benefit to the  industry.  TOWN AND DISTRICT  W. A. Moody of Vancouver  wai in town Monday.  The golf links* will soon be  ready for the season's games.  J. .7. Armstrong of Keremeos  was a visitor in town Saturday.

Jim McNulty had 1-JL teeth extracted in Cj minutes one day  last week, and not a hurt in the  buncli. Dr. Robinson did the  extracting, .lack Way held the  stop watch, and Tom Wilson  caught the teeth. Half an-  hour after Jim was on the  street playiug marbles with the  other youngsters.

A  farewell  dance  was given  in   the   opera   house   Tuesday  evening to C. P. and  Mrs.  Dalton.    During the evening G. P.  Jones, on behalf of the people  of  Hedley, "presented  Mr. Dalton with a purse  of gold.    The.  "music-. Jvvas furnished * by. ; the..'  Hedley band  and''ah" orchestra,  composed of Messrs. H. E.

The injuries were  serious and it was at first be-,  lieved rccoVerv was impossible,  butfPte. Stanley thinks that  recovery is certain, but Bobby  will be unfit for further active  service. One arm and one leg  were badly shattered.  The other day a five-year-  old young man called at the Gazette office willing to be interviewed.    His mother was build  ing    two   feUltS  for  mm  nice  suitb, too. Pockets? Ono in  blouse for handkerchief. Pants  pockets? No visible signs at  present.

Hip pockets ? Yes;  one anyway, for candy, gum.  pollyw'ogs, frogs, small snakes,  angle worms, grasshoppers,  birds'eggs, etc. To the small  boy -trousers are incomplete  .without pockets..

The use of  ���������   sea-power  is   demonstrated   not  only  uy  the  way- in  which    the     German  merchant ships, were swept from the  - oceans,- but also by the manner in  which the land and sea forces of the  Allies are cooperating in three continents.  No one before the war would have  thought that, merely by the threat or  influence of the Grand Fleet away in  the northern mists, great armies .and  .   all   that  was   necessary    lo. maintain  and supply  them  could be moved in  'security  all  oyer  the  world.

Il  has     been  ������������������ maintained, even though an important  battle  has  been   fought  without  that  . completely  decisive ..result  in   regard  to the smashing of the enemy's fleet  which was .hoped for.    The controlling factor in the whole of the war is  the latent power which lies ready at  - hand in the armorcd^squadrons now  commanded by Admiral Bcatty. That  is  the "sure   shield" which   the  Ccn-  'tial Powers must break down- if  they would alter the outcome of the  war. Hitherto, both by the campaign- of attrition and also byj the  "enterprise" which was frustrated off  the Jutland coast, they have fHiled_to  do it, and their more subtle and insidious methods of attacking commerce by submarines, which - are  having the temporary success of  most novel expedients, must also be  suppressed* in time. ���������  Lessons that were supposed to  have beer, learned in'the Russo-Japanese War have been found to be  useless or even misleading so far(as  the present struggle is concerned.  For instance, after the Japanese attacks upon the Russians at Port Arthur it was said that torpedo craft  would be the real factors in future  wars, and it was expected by some  that these vessels might be able to  break up the Grand Fleet. They  have failed not only to live up/to Ihe  predictions made by their admirers,  but to cut any figure at all.

Care has been taken to  protect it from these devices, whose  power has thus been nullified.

Entirely new light has been  thrown upon the battle cruiser, which  navel type has justified the hopes entertained in regard to it. Connected  with this success the war value of  speed has been demonstrated. This  was shown quite early in the war by  the achievements of the ' German  raiders in the oiiter seas and again  when Sturdce's battle cruisers made  their swift and silent journey to destroy von Spec's squadrons off the-  Falklands.

Mr. Dennis'  address, in part," follows:  "Canada, as you know, owns and  occupies a larger portion of the  North .American continent than 'is  comprised in the United Stales.  ��������� "At the present time Ihc.'Vast area  contained within the .boundaries of  the Dominion of Canada is occupied  by a population of less than 8,000,000  people.

"It is'desirable that I should  point out certain of the salient features . regarding Canada's progress  and opportunities for future development.  "Canada has 'now reached Nationhood in the sense of being admitted  lo 'senior partnership in the firm of  British Empire,' and in "the further  sense that the 1mme .'Canadian' is  now recognized throughout the  world as representing tlie citizen of a  virilev nationality.  "Conditons in Canada today arc  more or less affected by Ihe worldwide war in which she is taking a part  as a portion of the British Empire."  "Canadian trade is on a sound basis and prosperous conditions exist  throughout the Dominion. It is true  'that a considerable portion "of this  prosperity is due to the vasl expenditures in Canada for war munitions  Jnd war supplies m-d lo th-j enormously increased prices which are being realized for.food products, particularly 'wheal    and,,  other    grains  "As a- result of existing conditions  throughout the British Empire, - it  seems quite certain that at the close  of the war we will have preferential  trade within the Empire, and, that  being the case, Canadian goods will  have a tariff preference in all markets of the British Empire, and it  seems reasonable lo suppose that we  wiiriiavc at least a sympathetic trade  preference in the countries that have  been allied with Great Britain in the  war,_ which should give Canada a  special opportunity for trade extension, especially in the great Empire  of Russia, ��������� where, without doubt,  great opportunitcs will offer - themselves for trade extension."

In the manning  and management of ships the crucial experience' of the past two years  has taught the Japanese owners to  economize labor without decreasing  the efficiency of the men employed.  Before the war, it was common  knowledge that a greater number of  hands were required in managing a  Japanese ship than would be the case  were British or other foreign sailors  employed.

The attractive prices which have  been paid for hogs this season h'*s  rushed many'animals on the markec,  but there is" a limit, which has now  been reached. ���������  From 1904 to 1914 Canada's export  trade with Britain in hog products  decreased and Denmark's increased.  From 1914 Canada's export bacon  trade has increased and Denmark's  has gone the other way, showing a  falling-off of 72,000,000 pounds. For  the fiscal year ending March 31,  1914, Canada's export of hog products totalled 23,620,861 pounds. For  1915 the total was 72,036,025 pounds  and for 1916, 144,150,309 pounds. The  United States experienced a like increase. ,  But so far as Canada is concerned  there is another side to the shield.  On June 30, 1916, there were fewei  hogs in this counlry than at any  time during life previous 10 years,  and from 1911 to 1916 there was a  decrease of 1,000,000. This state  of affairs, as well as the opportunity  that is before the country, is staled  iu Pamphlet No. 21 of the livcsiock  deparlmcnt at Ottawa, entitled "The  Bacon Hog and the British Alaikcl,"  for which John Bright, livestock  commissioner, and H. S. Arkcll, assistant commissioner, are jointly responsible, and which can be had free  on application lo the publications  branch, department of agriculture,  Ottawa.  Particularly unfortunate, says Ihe  pamphlet, is the decrease in the fact  of the rare opportunity lliat is offered us to further extend our "Wilt-!  shire side" trade with Ihe British  market, a trade that for the ycar  1915 amounted in value to $15,^57,-  652. In - view of the facts here set  forth, it is hardly necessary to fui.lhcr  xefer lo the gravity of the siluatioi.  or lo the opportunity that will be  lost if our farmers and breeders do  not bestir themselves. The joint  authors point out thai while we aie  not for specified reasons to occupy  the market for fat hogs, that for the  bacon hog is ours for the asking.  They also call for regularity in the  supply. "We cannot," they say, "go  into the business for six months m  the year and then go out of it for si\-  . months without having a general  average of price that is unprofitable  both to producer and packer." .A  good crop ol hogs is required each  month of the year. "If each farmer,"  the pamphlet says, in conclusion,  "maintains even one or, al most, two  sows and manages these and their  offspring properly, there can be built-  up in Canada a very important and  remunerative 'industry, not only  yielding a permanent profit to the  farmer, but as well materially assisting in preserving the commercial  stability of the Dominion.'  "In a word, we need a good crop of  hogs each month of ihe year. It will  be a misfortune if, because of shortage of grain, all pig-stock is sold off  the farm. Clover hay, turnips, mangels and skim-milk make winter feed  for brood sows and even for young  growing-stock, and may be trusted  to bring them out in good shape in  the spring. These, with a little middlings,! will pull the youngsters along  in satisfactory style and keep them  growing. Breed at least one good  type of sow. Unfortunately many farmers are selling their females. Most  of them could belter afford to stay  in the business. We hrave yet to meet  the man-who doubts the good prospects of next year's markets."   -  The new demand will further stimulate the Canadian fish industry in all  parts of the Dominion.  Arrangements for the supply are  being made through Major Hugh  Green, who was sent to England ay  Sir Sam Hughes last spring to superintend the Canadian fish ration supply  for the Canadian troops overseas,  Thai scheme proved so successful  ihat Ihe British Board of Trade asked Major Green to go back to Canada  and arrange for a still bigger supply  for the British arm}'.  New Zealand and Australia have  also arranged to give their men in  hospital a weekly fish ration through  the Canadian Fish Supply Department in London.

Although the industry is of  comparatively recent origin, it has,  within the last two or three years,  made very rapid strides. The value  of the fruit crop of 1910 was approximately $250,000; the value of the 1916  crop was about $1,700,000. One of  the best known districts in which  fruit is obtained is the Okanagan  Valley. The total output of this district during 1916 has been about 2,000  carloads of fruit, in addition to 1,000  carloads of vegetables. This produce  goes principally to the" prairie provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and  Manitoba, but at the same time a  considerable trade is being developed  with Australia, South Africa -and  Great Britain. Government exhibits  from the province secured the gold  medal of the Royal Horticultural Society, London, England���������the blue  ribbon of fruit growing���������for eight  consecutive years, against all comers.  New Use for Church Bells  Germany Needs a Lesson  A New Epoch  If there arc such things as 'epochs,  a new epoch is dawning. It may be  pointed out that the measures now-  being taken in Europe are war measures, and will pass with the coming  of peace. They will not pass eniirel>,  for indeed there is lo be no stica  peace as will permit any nation to  fall back into the lowcr'national organization of Ihe past. Every measure taken during the war to heighten  a people's powers, to economize Ihcir  collective resources, and more effectively to direct their collective energies will be retained so far as il has  been successful and can be applied  tinder peace conditions in "the war  after the war"; that is, in a worldwide struggle of economic rivalry. ���������  Chicago Tribune.  One Absolute Essential of This War  Is to Uproot Prussian Tradition  That War Pays    '  Were the War to end: tomorrow  without' Germany being required to  indemnify Belgium,- France, Serbia,  Poland and Rumania for the damage done them by Germany's l.ust for  conquest, the actual condition would  be that the criminal nation would "be.  able to look around with satisfaction  on her own rich provinces, anmarr^d  by the fangs of war, and with equal  satisfaction on .the ''ruined provinces-  of-all her neighbors. . And the Germans would count the war as a tremendous gain, as having given them  a vast relative advantage over neighboring States.- Surely the one absolute essential of this war is to uproot  the Prussian tradition that war pays,  that war has been the making of  Prussia; and that .to war they, and  how in a wider way the Germans,  must ;. ever look for progress and  their greater good. Surely if this  war ends leaving the German people  impregnated with this Prussian, belief in the necessity for war, and the  Prussian faith in the profitableness  of war, it will be war badly ended  for Europe and the world.  If peace came tomorrow, the German general staff would say that  they had learned enough to ensure  their success next time. In some  way the German people must be convinced that it is their business to see  that no German general staff shall  again plot and attempt such bloody  crimes against manhood ��������� against  the German masses as much as others, for they have suffered as deeply,  and died as painfully as any of their  victims.���������From the Toronto  Star.

That  averages half a ton per bell, but as  there were probably a fair number of  big bells included���������it was recently  announced that the famous 17-ton  hell from St. Stephen's, -Vienna, had  been scheduled for the melting-pot���������  there may be some truth in' the report which emanated from Rome " a  few weeks ago that in "many country  places the church bells had been ex:  empted from service on condition  that all the cow-bells of the district  were substituted in Iheir place. Russia, at any rate, can look with equanimity on the turning of bells into  shells, for if the victory is lo rest  with the side that can do the biggest  things in that direction there is an  enormous reservoir to draw from in  Russia. The Great Bell of Moscow  tips the beam at 200 tons, nearly  twelve times the weight of Austria's  biggest bell, and three bells in the  Church of St. Ivan, Moscow, can pio-  vide not far short of 150 tons of metal should the necessity arise.���������London Daily News.

There is a  point on one of the tree-hidden roads  of the forest which is shown to th'e  visitor as the sc.enc of the exploits  of a certain artillery lieutenant. It is  no distance from the German- lines,  but on one occasion, when the Crown  Prince_was hammering away at the  French trenches and his infantry had  left their cover, - this lieutenant  brought up two "75's" and set, them  one on either side of the road. There  was no time to link up his guns lo  the front trenches, but, with the aid  of a compass and a map, he blamed  away al the line where he was convinced the Germans-would try to  pass.

Stanley Hall, president , of  Clark University, before members  of- the -American Association for_  the Advancement of Science in New  York City the other day.  "The war has given the world its  greatest lesson in scientific onV  ciency," Dr. Hall said. "The Allies,  least of all England, did not realize  how far Germany., had gone in castling off the culture of half a century  .ago, and, in almost a single generation, acquiring a new soul that made  it the mosr"iiard headed,, practically  efficient nation the world -has ever  seen."- ' "  Dr. Hall said    the    Germans^    had  made  exhaustive  tests  of .the  scnsc\  as well as the fatigue of military-ser-x'  vice under varied conditions, and- had'  'sifted into'harmonious    groups     the ���������  different   nervous  types  of  men      by  temebility   tests.

'JAlready enough of "the'carefully,  guarded.secrets'of _ these " tests', for  specific lines of military service have  become known to suggest why the  German and French armies arc so  more effectively: organized than the  English and the Russian and to show  that applied psychology can render a  most valuable service in war," Dr.  Hall continued. '   -  The psychologist said that the war  was  revealing     vast   and unexpected  .  nervous resources in some men,-while  in  others  it  served     to  reveal    how  easy the human nervous system was  lo break down.

M.-V-.t-iiiffi-  Getting at  JHie Truth  Will Be Renewed Study of Events of  the Days That Preceded  the War,  Paul Rohrback, the eminent German    writer    and    publicist,    in    sn  ��������� article translated and-transmitted by  The Globe's Berlin correspondent,  discusses the immediate responsibi1-  ity .for the beginning of the war, a  theme that most, German apologists  ���������either keep away from or slide over  in  an incomplete way.  _ To. the question of. why Germany  did riot accept any one. of Grey's conference proposals Dr. Rohrbick answers that it - was impossible for  Germany to. take a, seat at a conference table while, Russian mobilization^ continued; that if the British  foreign minister'had telegraphed to  Pctrograd, "Ii you continue mobiliza-.  tion we will remain neutral," Russia  might haye demobilized and no' war  would have occurred.  The chief defect in this answer is  the assumption that the Grey conference proposal cariie after the issuance  , of the Russian mobilization order.  The  unchallenged  record  shows' thai  , it came before. Germany refused to  back the idea. ' She had said she-  could not assist in summoning h'er  ally before a European Areopagus.  Dr.' Rohrback, by ignoring the,, facts,  does not add lo the repute of" German scholars for thoroughness.  The Russian mobilization was in  response to a prior Austro-Hungar-  ian mobilization. If the German  government-had really- desired peace  it-would seem that when' it demanded! demobilization of Russia i'.  would have demanded the same  from Austria-Hungary. It is nonseV I  sical to contend that Austria-Hun-J  gary could summon her reserves to  .the colors while Russia could not.  If Great Britain should have pledged  herself to neutrality if Russia did  riot demobilize, Germany should  Iiave pledged herself to  neutrality if  'Austria-Hungary did not demobilize.  If the argument has any merit one  'way it has.merit-the other,   s   --  The lime approaches when Ihcre  will  be a  renewal  of a  study  of the  .ten   days   preceding   the   war.���������From  .the New YorTTGlobe. .  Heroic Flying Men  Courageous   and   Daring   Tactics   of  the   British  Airmen  French aviators have "a profound  respect for the British Royal Flying  Corps, and the Matin, the chief Parisian newspaper, prints a warm, appreciation of their services. Wc arc  told that during a reconnaissance in  Egypt, an aeroplane was attacked by  two enemy machines. A bullet broke  the English pilot's jaw, another pierced his shoulder, a third found a resting place in- his left leg, and finally  his left hand was also wounded. He  fainted, regaining consciousness when  only 150 metres above' the earth. He  was over his own lines. He brought  his machine safely to land, and then  found that his observer was wounded  in the chest and shoulder. With difficulty, he made his report, fainted  and died!  During a bombing-mission Lieutenant Albert Ball noticed twenty  enemy aeroplanes, divided into three  groups. He advanced towards the  first.group, which contained -seven  machines, and fired on them at a distance of ten yards. The , first German wavered, -wheeled' and fell. He  then threw himself upon the others,  firing, two volleys at them, The first  Boche took'fire and.fell. The others  attempted to escape, but ,our pilot  immediately started in pursuit and  followed them until he had'discharged his last cartridge, one of the enemy machines falling on a house in a  village. Ball-then returned for more  amunition, came back to the charge,  and attacked three more aeroplanes,  which he put out 'of action; then,  having no more petrol, was obliged  to return to^ his base with his, machine disabled.   '  Rust Epidemic Made  Scarcity of Seed Grain  Farmers Warned to Be Careful This  Year in Their Sowing  In   order   lo  assure  a  heavy  grain  harvest for Canada in  1917, the  Dominion  Experimental  Farms    recommends  that farmers exercise especial  care "in  the    selection    of tlie    right  kind of    seed grain for    sowing    the  spring wheat "crop.  It  is  expected  that  the  grain   rust  -.epidemic  of the past season in'    the  West  will  be causing grave concern  to many farmers as to where to turn  to obtain  superior seed.  Grain from a crop damaged by rust  is   frequently   of  poor   quality,      and  not fit for use as seed, unless special  precautions   are. taken.     This  is   net  "because   there is  much  clangor     that  'this seed will again"- produce a rusted  ���������crop,   but because the grain is shrunken    and    immature;    such    seed    is  known    to    yield    poor and    feeble  crops.  The safest seed  lo use  is the-best  grade     procurable     from     rust-free  crops, providing, of course, that    the  germination! is normal'  The use. of this class of seed  may  hot, however, be universally possible,  since frost and hail  caused considerable damage, where rust was not prevalent    in  the West    and very little  ^ced   remains  over from   tlie  harvest  of 1915.. , ". ..... '���������.-:".  ,- Thus, .perforce, Western farmers at  least will have to sow much of ;the  grain: damaged by rust.".Where such  grain must -be used, it should' be  car.cfulry-and thoroughly fanned and  screened, until only the heaviest kernels remain. The use of seed prepared in this way is known to ensure a more promising yield than the  indiscriminate use of unscreened  grain. Experiments have shown that  where heavy seeds are used, gains to  the extent of five bushels an acre may  result. .     .  Farmers should lake these precautions to enable them to make up for  the considerable losses of the past  season. Early sowing, the use- of  early maturing varieties, and sow-  nig rather more per acre, these aie  well-known precautions to be taken  against damage from rust.  Mightiest of the Grand Fleet  A Canadian lieutenant on a British  ship  of the  Grand  Fleet, in a rcceni  letter to friends in Toronto,- says:  "Since the war began Ihe navy has  grown like 'a green bay tree.' It has  been primed of old ships and some  new ones, but new branches have  sprung out as by magic. Barring  whispers,- in bated breath, nolfa'itig  was known of the mightiest until with  a roar, that woke the echoes of the  hills their anchor chains rattled down  within hailing distance of us."  "As one gazes at these greallcvi-  athans, whose speed and power is the  ..marvel of the age, one realizes the  full- meaning of what Britain's wartime, manufacturing power means to  her today."  Russians are Eager *  .   For News of Battle  and  Villagers     Take     Newspapers  Throng    the   Inadequate  Libraries  -Interest in the world war and a desire to learn what the -hosts of the  "Little Father" are doing and who  the allies, who arc battling with theiri  against the Teutonic armies, are, have  caused a grand rush by the Russian  peasants upon the'popular libraries  and reading rooms established several years ago by the government. Unfortunately, according to the Rusky  Wjedomosty of Moscow, these institutions are in no condition to supply  the information wanted, as most of  the books they contain treat of the  training of dogs and similar subjects,  pronounced harmless by the so-  called Commission of* Scholars appointed some-time-ago.  ' The libraries in Russia, which really are "adapted to the enlightenment  of the people, arc closely watched Ly  the "police, _and are closed a-grcac  part of the time. The Society for  tlie Promotion of Popular Education  of Kursk, which was dissolved by  government order, alone maintained  more than seventy libraries and reading rooms. It was directed by Dr.  W. Dolschcnko, a\mcmber of the first  and second Duma.  Nevertheless the Russians are making the best of their limited "opportunities, and the number of subscribers to the- libraries and reading rooms  still open has increased more than 60  per cent, in many parts of the coun-  tiy, despite the fact that so many of  the peasants are at the front. A landowner in Central Russia sends in the  following account of the eagerness  for news shown by the people of his  neighborhood:; "I am now literally  'the village scribe,' as-all of the educated .men that were here arc now  at the*!-front: Every day crowds of  women come to me- to have letters  written to their loved ones in, the  field/Something that gives me particular "satisfaction, is the interest: taken by the villagers in the newspapers. Formerly I received only one  paper for our ~four villages. Now  that,is by no means enough. The  peasants have taken up a collection,  and they subscribe for four metropolitan newspapers for each village."  In other parts of Russia, where the  people themselves fail to show much  interest in the war and other worid  affairs, the news is being spread by  the efforts of the radical educated  element. The Russky Slowo of Moscow announces, for example, -ho  founding o.f a newspaper cailed the  Nevelsky Listok in the. chief city'of  the Ncvcl district,-which will be distributed free among the inhabitants  of the villages in that section.  Splendid Record  Of British Unity  Took Armored- Cars  from   Caucasus  to Dobrudja, and Kelp the  Russians  Reuter's Agency gave some .details  recently of the work of the British  armored-car squadrons which have  been operating w.ith the Russians  against "the Turks and other'Voes.  Probably no unit of the British forces  has had more varied experiences than  those that fell to "the devoted men  who, corning from all parts of the  British Empire, have, after being icebound for- months in the Arctic  crossed European Russia, and, after  performing - the remarkable feat of  crossing the appalling "roads" of the  Caucasus and doing good work against-the Turks there, have now appeared in action side by side with the  Russo-Rumanian armies in the Dobrudja.  In addition to the military value of  their work, their presence has been  productive of great good, particularly  in the remoter parts of their field of  action. Tlicy have been received everywhere with open arms by oun  Russian.allies,.while several of the  officers and men have been decoirtL-  ed by the Czar.  After their first encounter with the  Turks, the Grand Duke Nicholas sent  to Commander Locker-Lampson a  special telegram of congratulation  and best wishes for the future, while  Major-General Nazabekoff also telegraphed expressing his deepest  thanks to the "courageous squadron  which has given such valuable help  to the troops entrusted to me." The  Russian commander added: "The  memory of my cq-opcration with the  valiant Englishmen will always remain with' me."  Pending the arrival of the armored  cars from the Kola Peninsula, an officer was dispatched.to Tiflis and Er-  zerum to report on the conditions,  and after - conferences at Petrograd  orders were given for the squadron  to'leave immediately for the Caucasian front. After their winter in the  Arctic ice some of the cars needed  repair, and in order to insure a punctual start two days and nights were  occupied in necessary repairs and  .overhauls.  Early one morning the squadron  left Vladikavkas for Mscheb, near  Tiflis, and reached that place in excellent order. The cars were urgently  needed to inspect roads beyond Er-  zerum, which the continued retreat of  the enemy had,left open.  The difficulties of the journey were  enormous, having to be made, as it  was, along winding, precipitous, and  ill-kept tracks", the only avenue of  supply for the great army. For over  a" hundred miles was met a constant  procession of ancient carts, slow-  moving camels and dromedaries, mule  teams, ox-wagons, with circular,  spokeless wheels, and caravans extending for hundreds of yards. The  road surface proved the greatest obstacle,- and the baseplates of some of  the cars were ripped open by projecting rocks. With characteristic "business" these defects were made good  with, seccotinc, soap and medical  plaster, and every armore'd car got to  Kars eighteen hours before the  scheduled time.  . Bible Light for Germans  German Piety  Is  Renowned for  Its  Uprightness and Purity  "Der Weltkrieg im Licht dcr Bibel"  ���������"The World War in the Light of  the Bible"���������is a book by a German  writer named Dunkmann, which rs; being largely read in Germany these  ���������days. Dunkmann claims all sorts  of territory to "complete" Germany  because "she alone can organize these  territories ai-^} because she . i& the  chosen nation of God^whicii claims  its Promised Land. " Docs not the  Rhine flow through Germany as tlie  Jordan flows through Palestine? If,  like the children of Israel in Egypt,  our people are becoming so g.eaf-and  strong that we shall have need of a  larger territory, since it is necessary, our hand will arm itself with  the gauntlet of.iron. In all the domains of-culture, of science-and , of  art, as in,'those of religion and faith,  Providence has multiplied for us the  heroes, so much so that no other na--  tion possesses a like treasure; captains, emperors, kings, poets, philosophers and artists; bjut above all our  heroes in the domain of religion, our  learned theologians, our fathers in  .the noblest sense of the word, it is  wonderful to see with what" complaisance God has multiplied them  among us". W^hilst the ' religion of  the Russians is not at all the true  Christian faith, whilst English Christianity is no more so, German piety  is renowned for its uprightness ��������� ncl  purity; it is the only true faith in  the world. It alone has a legitimate  object: 'Monatheism,' which distinguished Israel from all other nations  as it distinguishes us from them  also!" . . . "In this war the Old  Testament is our faithful ally. 'Will  it be maintained that what was-jual  for the Jews is not so for Ihe Germans? What the, people of Isiael  thought it could do, neither the indignation of the neutrals nor the hypocrisy of our enemies will prevent us  Germans from doing in our turn. And  that is why Germany had a right to  violate Belgian' neutrality. Did not  the Israelites ask the Amorrheans to  be allowed to cross Ihcir territory,  and upon the latter's refusal, legitimately conquer their country? That  is how the Old Testament looks upon  neutrality and its value."  The Userof Straw  of  -   Applicant: Is there an opening here  for a live-wire, hustling college man?

Comprehensive   Research    Study  Cereal Straws in "Canada  Having "in mind the prevention of  waste and the economic utilization of  raw materials ; produced in Canada,  Lord Shaughncssy has, says the Montreal Journal of Commerce, authorized Arthur D. Little, Limited, the Canadian branch of a well-known Boston  organization of analytical chemists,  to undertake a comprehensive research study on cereal straws in  Canada, to include the straw of  wheat, oats, barley and rye, arid having for its purpose the industrial util-  ization76f the excess straw now commonly burned in the West  This problem has been divided into  some twenty divisions, and these divisions arc being assigned, under the  direction of Mr. Little, to various individuals and laboratories where best  results can be obtained in the shortest time. Some of these divisions are  the botany of cereal straws, the chemistry of straws, the fuel possibilities, production of ethyl alcohol from  straw, the fabrication of straw lumber, .the production of various pulp  and paper products from straw, y  study of the destructive distillation  of straw, processes for increasing the  feeding value of straw, the economics of the straw question, the present  industrial uses of straw, etc.  It is greatly desired to have the  work sufficiently completed by next  autumn to enable an impressive straw-  exhibit to be made at the National  Exhibition in Toronto, after which  there is a possibility of entraining the  exhibit for the purpose of showing  thrSngh Canada what can be done  with this' large amount of raw material. Mr. Little has the co-operation of various Government dep-ut-  ments in this work, of McGill and  other universities, commercial laboratories, and individuals.    -  Hun Spy System Blocked  Disguised German Military Desperadoes Sent to England  That spies of Germany have been  very active among us for the past  ten years cannot be denied, but in  this, the third year of war, Great  Britain may certainly congratulate  herself upon the possession of a very  adequate and effective system of  counter-espionage and, indeed, upon  having secured a veritable stranglehold upon the enemy's spies, 'writes  Wm. LeQucux in the Weekly Scotsman.  To the average man or woman the  working of the Intelligence Departments of both branches of the service is shrouded in mystery, as it  must obviously be.  The discovery of the '.'Spy's post  office" in the -Caledonian road; London, in 1912, was a most fortunate  incident, because letters sent ���������there  from Germany to be re-forwarded to  spies were intercepted arid copied.  They gave us the clue to the existence of a very remarkable state of  affairs, -and revealed the identity not  only of the spies amongst 'us, but  also showed that German military  ���������desperadoes had been dispatched to  England in humble guises, but with  special instructions to carry "on certain sinister work, quite distinct  from espionage. These Huns were  raiders whose hope it was to strike  at the outbreak of war, sudden and  deadly blows with explosives and  by other-means, with the object of  crippling our naval and military oi-  ganization.: For a time they constituted a very grave menace to out  country. What blows they actually  struck cannot here be revealed. Certain disasters were, rightly or  wrongly, attributed to them.  Munition Work Needs  Some Speeding Up  A    Soldiers'    Message ' to   Munition  Workers of the Empire  - There arc no holidays at the front.  Every minute of the day and night  men are risking their lives, even although the official communications  may say "there is nothing to report."  An appeal to Canadian munition workers to give up their usual New  Year's holiday and the statement that  Canadian manufacturers are far behind in the delivery - of "shells and  .other war material show how imperative is the need for'still further speeding up_ our war industries in Canada.  Even in England there is probably  room for still greater effort. Workers ought not to want any holidays  except those periods of rest that-are  necessary to keep the body vat the  highest point of efficiency. Flanders  ought to be matched by an equal activity in the armories and maximum  of human endeavor is becoming more  nearly appioached "with every, v/'ck  thal^-passes.  The English-production was not  made possible until the National Advisory committee on war output had  as a result of wide publicity brought  home lo the workers the vital necessity of "more shells and still moie  shells." This board, of which Mr. Arthur Henderson, now a member of  the war cabinet, was chairman, addressed the workers in these words:  ''Our munitions makers are sharing  in the battles as much as if their  workshops were situated immediately  behind "the firing line, and they were  personally engaged in handing the  shells^ lo the men who fire them."  This is a "thought that "may not immediately present itself to those of the  workers in the country who lack imagination; but it is a matter of exact  truth. Our munitions workers are as"'  directly engaged in the fight as were  the wives of the early pioneers who  knelt behind their log defences and  reloaded their husbands' muskets. If  the ammunition stream fails, then the  aimy must fail.  One of the pamphlets circulated by  the national advisory committee has  been forwarded by a friend of The  Mail and Empire. It is called "The  Measure of Our Blood" aiuK.vas writ-  "Excuse haste and a bad pen," was  the message left behind by a convict  who escaped from a western -Stale  prison.  "Open the window, waiter; I am  just roasting!" a customer exclaimed  who  had just  dined at  a  restaurant.  "Shut it up waiter; I am frozen,"  protested a man who had just sat  down.  The waiter hesitated. The proprietor settled the dispute at once:  "Obey the customer who has not  yet dined," he said.  Electrically Treated   Crops  For several years experiments on  the effect of overhead electrical dii-  charges on crops have been carried  out at Lincudcn Mains, Dumfrleshire,  Scotland, by Miss E. C. Dudgeon,  with the scientific co-dpcratio-.i of  Professor J. H. Priestley and Mr. I.  Joorgensen The leakage of discharge over the control plot was  largely, but not entirely, prevented  by the interposition between the  plots of a w-ell-carljjcd wire screen  three feet above the level of the  charged network Despite this leakage, the electrified plot showed the  remarkable increase" of 30 per cent,  in grain and 58 per cent, straw as the  presumptive effect of the discharge,  which was applied on the average five  hours daily for 108 days. The crofs  \yerc not heavy, but 'the superiority  of the crop on the electrified plot  was marked from the earliest stages  of growth, and it suffered less from  the dryness of the season.  New York's Tallest Buildings  The five tallest buildings in New  York, with the height of each, arc as  follows: Woolworth, Broadway and  Park place, 750 feet; Metropolitan,  Madison square, 700 feet 3 inches;  Singer, Broadway, near Liberty  street, 612 feet 1 inch; Municipal,  Centre street and Park row, 560 feet  1 inch; Jankers' Trust, Wall and  Nassau streets, 530 feet.  ten by a wounded soldier. When h������  arrived at .Southampton, his head  swalhed in bandages,, an effort was  made to interview him. Instead of  talking about his experiences he  handed out a message which he had  written on the ship. The name of the  regiment with which he served and  his own name were suppressed, foi-.  lowing what we can regard as only  the half-insane policy of the censorship. He said: "I don't think our  chaps'could have done much better if  they had been at the game for 20  years. . . . They fought hard and  they fought all the .time, and -there  was never a. case, of a single man  hanging back for a single minute.  Couldn't do more. Our worst is not  better than the Bosche best; and it  may be our best is no better than his  best. But what I'm certain of is that  our average is infinitely finer than his  average, and on equal terms wc. can  beat him all the time and go on  beating him,"  Then he turned to the matter of  munitions, and said: "You can never  eat .your dinner or smoke a pipe, or  read a newspaper, or go to the pictures but-what, while you are getting  through with it, some scores of your  own countrymen are knocked out. by  bullets-and shells." There's no reason why the public should be depressed about this. As far as the  army is.concerned, "we're not giving  away "a drop of your countrymen's  blood, not this year. It's ill being  sold, and on a good business basis .  . . a better price it may be than it  ever fetched in all the history of the  Empire. So don't grieve after us. Our  high commands know what they're  doing, and Master Bosche's doom "is  set, and he knows it, and we all know  it. We're.doing our bit, all right. Are  you? . . . Our part of the .machinery's all right, and I don't think  you'll find any failure there." He expressed the view that the end of the  war was largely in the hands of-the  British army.  The wounded soldier's message  continues: "For God's sake, don't you  fail us. There's a lot of blood to be  sold; and so long as it's well sold on  the right terms, as it has been -.old in  the last week, you can make 3*our  mind easy. . . . It's good stuff,  you know. Don't let it be chucked  away. Everybody will know what I  mean, \von't he? It boils down to munitions'of war. You can't send us 'oo  much. For God's sake sec that you  send us enough. You can measure the  blood we've got to pay -before it's  over by the guns and shells and cartridges you send out. The more you  send the less we'll have to pay. Send  plenty, my countrymen, and countrywomen, send plenty. Don't you mind  us. We're all right. You arc all very  kind to us when we come back. We've  all heard all about it. I say, never  mind us. Drop every other mortal  thing, but for God's sake send us  plenty of munitions. You can trust  us to do the-best." It vis messages  like this that ought to be given to  every munition worker in Canada and  everyone who might become a muni-  lion 'worker.  ���������m  m  Legal But  Unlikely  The Angler: Is this public watei,  my man ?

This had not been  the act of a small clique ov school of  men, but their historians, professors,  literary men and ������������������ learned, men had  been engaged-in a conspiracy to  produce the result. Books which  preached the doctrine of brute force,  material arrogance, and world-wide  dominion, were circulated and read  by hundreds of thousands of people  in Germany almost unknown to the  people of this country, whose knowledge of German literature h;ld been  largely confined to the great writers,  of the past. After years of this, suddenly war broke out, and we found  tlie revelation of this spirit in the  acts and conduct of the people.

She was frequently troubled with, bad fainting spells, and nothing wo tried seemed to do  her any good. We -were advised to try Dr.  Chase's Nervo Food, and did so with- most  -satisfactory results.

Liberal party  for any such  alarm.   .  In more than one public  speech Sir. Wilfrid- Laurier lias  voiced unalterable opposition  to conscription. Ho has made  plain to those who wish' to take  advantage of their freedom by  allowing others to preserve it  for them, that ono way to  avoid compulsory service was  to get Liberal leaders back into  power. Another way, obviously, was to leave Canada.  The considerable number of  mon who have gone lo the  United States, therefoic, might  havo diluted their Pear of conscription with tho hope that  the Liberal party would soon  achieve office. The prospect of  the latter event they seem to  have found extremely dim. It  failed to hold them, and many,  no doubt, made a considerable  sacrifico in order to get away.  One of the benefits to the  nation calculated to follow a  return to office of Sir Wilfrid  Laurier would be the homecoming of the exiled patriots to  a country governed in such a  way as to accommodate their  patriotism.

" He who does me once, shame o'n him;  He who does me twice, shame on me."  It has been  looked  upon  by  many as a very plain matter of  fact that the dynastic rulers of  Germany  are  but little  above  the , level    of   sheer' maniacs.  Every move that has been made  by thorn since the  inception of  their  world-conquering  theory  of spreading  German "kultur*'  by force   of   arms, backed  by  low  intrigue,  has been but additional evidence   of   their insanity.    From  the  invasion of  Belgium-down to the latest attempted  intrigues  against the  United States,   there   has  not  been a single  move made that  could have been prompted by  anything   like   a   sane   understanding of world events. Either  these  rulers  of   Germany   are  stark mad or they afford a study  in arrested intellectual development that is more centuries behind   that   of the  rest  of  the  world   than  one  would care to  specify.���������B.

Coulthsiid      4.25  The Unlimited was late Friday owing to slides on the main  lino in the Cascades and delaying tho Wenatchee train to  Oroville. The Great Northern  is veiy indiscreet in having  snowslides at a time when the  U. S. is about to declare war  and the Greasers are swarming.  Quite a number of men have  coine in from Copper mountain,  near Princeton, the past week.  The force has been reduced at  that camp, owing, it is said, to  shortage of funds to carry on  development Avork and ' the  erection of buildings and the  purchase of machinery for a  concentrating plant. It is probable that the delay in the  plans of the management will  only be a temporary one.  A Party Exonerated.  Liberal nevv's'pap'ers are accusing the Borden government  of the sole responsibility for the tute'has  oxodus from Canada to the  United Statos of a number of  men who fear compulsory military service. In common justice it must be admitted that  Mining  men  of  long experience in Kootenay and Boundary  districts state that the shortage  of water for mining purposes is  'this winter the worst in memory.  The freezeu'p  at high  altitude  early in   the  winter, which has  prevented  snow from   seeping  through into  the creeks, is regarded   as   the cause.    But.for  the fact that many of the larger  mines   of the  country  have in  past years   made  preparations  for auxiliary  power or for securing  water at points which  will secure  a supply under the  most    unfavorable   conditions,  tlie shortage   this  year  would  have compelled a marked reduction in output. '���������  It is said a smelting and refining plant will be built near  Vancouver. The roof burned  off the first Vancouver smelter  with the, first and last charge.  The bounty on coyotes has  been reduced from $3 to $2, and  on wolves from $15 to $10.  TP Corrigan.  Richaid (Jhne.  F. C. Chapman  T. Carras   F. Deeario,   J Del! roe   S Dogadin .    .
