Riddle is doing his  annual assessment on the street  in- front of the Palace Livery.  This is Avork that the government-has always neglected to  do, so it had to be done by the  the livery people. The ground  is lower at that corner than on  other portions of the. .street,  and autos making the turn  cut out the filling each year.  The provincial appropriation  for roads and bridges in the  Similkameen this year is $25,700.  Last year it was $72,000. Trail  and Similkameen districts appear to have been discriminated  against in the appropriations.  Other districts have been reduced to about one half of last  year's appropriations, while  Trail and Similkaineen tire cut  to a third. The two districts  elected Conservatives.

A little ' booklet has been  issued by the C. P. R, entitled  "Alberta, Saskatchewan and  Manitoba." descriptive, of the  rc&6in*t-es ,o������ tliV.prairie-province's. Although." intended to  interest settlers in C. P. R.  lands, the booklet contains a  vast amount of valuable information for intending settlers  or those already interested in  lhe development of Western  Canada. Jt might not be an  impertinence to suggest to  other railway companies that  developing the natural resources of a country and thus creating tonnage for the road is  more in line with the legitimaee  business of a great raihvay  corporation than buying legislatures. The booklet may be  obtained from the Publicity  Branch,   C. P. li, Calgary, Alta.  Tiiicuk is no doubt that the  majority of. French-Canadians  have been duped by their  leaders in regard to the war.  There are no braver people than  the French-Canadians, but they  have allowed the leaders to-do  their thinking on national and  political questions. Their lejid-  ers aro politicians. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, ono of the readers  of French-CanaiJiaii thought, is  also the Liberal leader in the  Dominion. There have been  many acts of the Borden government in regard- to the war  that are open to criticism, but  Sir Robert Borden will face the  electorate an empire man with  empire ideals. Sir Wilfrid-Laurier can only ask support at the  polls as a French-Canadian with  French Canadian ideals. ���������'  The inquiry into P. G. E. railway financing and construction  affairs has gone just far enough  at Victoria  to  completely convince both the government and  the opposition   that it will not  be either safe or  for  the good  of the country to go any further  with the matter, because of the  danger of disclosing juft how  much  P.  G. E. money wjis actually    "benevolently    .assimilated" into tlie  campaign funds  of  both   the 'Conservative .and  Liberal    parties.    Enough   has  already been uncovered to show  that it was some swag and as  greedily grabbed by the purified  and  sanctified  Liberals   as by  the polluted  and  damned Conservatives.

"  the Country  Tlie_ whole business of bestowing  titles in this country is open lo the  objection that such things arc out of  harmony with the spirit of the country. And besides, these honors and  decorations; when they arc nqt entirely meaningless," are misleading.,  they are said to come from the Sovereign, the fountain of-honor, and  arc paraded before, the public as the  Sovereign's, recognition of public service of great value. The truth is, of  course, that the Sovereign has probably never even heard of the names  of many of the candidates until the  list ha's been presented to him, and  that often enough the titles are rewards' of-a kind of service ..which  could not safely be mentioned in  public. Occasionally' men who have  become eminent in science, art, lifcr-  j ature, politics or other fields of cn-  arc selected for distinction,  and if titles were restricted to such  use there would be little objection,  but the value of titles "so bestowed  is utterly destroyed by the bestowal  of other titles for no public service  that can be recognized and no service  at all   that  can    be   mentioned.���������The  Woodstock Sentinel-Review.

The measure proposes to make it arbitrary to  set thc_ clock ahead one hour, over  the cntireicountry during the months  of long daylight. This has proved of.  inestimable benefit in Europe, and it  would be equally beneficial on this  continent. In sonic parts of,Canada  daylight saving has been tried arid  has proved more or less of a failure ���������  This, however, has been because the  movement in-each instance was a  purely local one, adopted by municipalities. To be "successful, such a  measure must prevail over the whole  of Canada, and if we can work with  Uncle Sam, as it now seems there  will be an. opportunity of doing, so  i.iuch  the bcttqr.���������Montreal  Herald.

Bathurst  Parliamentary Secretary to the  British Ministry of Food  Another question was, whether' it  was advisable to use milk' in producing butter. His answer was 'that if  surplus milk were available it was  of far more value to the nation converted into cheese than converted into butter. If meat ran short, cheese  was the most valuable substitute the  British farmer, could possibly produce. He had also been asked  whether it was desirable to limit the  use of starch. It people chose to  wear soft collars and soft shirtfronts  they would be taking a patriotic  course (laughter); but in all these  matters they must have some sense  of proportion. We had not reached,  a stage when wc could reasonably  ask people to forego the use' of stiff!  white collars.  PIMPLES   AND   ERUPTIONS  MEAN BAD BLOOD.

"There's a Reason"  Attitude of Friendliness    Is    Unwittingly Expressed  The attitude of the" average Englishman towards Americans was unwittingly expressed by a country  constable who. in the early days of  tliewar, was going about putting up  notices informing aliens that they  must register with the police. Oil  his round he met an American, and  in the course of the ensuing convcrsa.  tion quite casually mentioned 'he  purpose of his journey. The American became interested at once, and  read one of the notices. "Why," he  said, "that means I must go" and  icgistcr." The constable looked at  him in astonishment.. "That's for  aliens," he .said. "Yes," said the  American, "but I am an alien." The  constable looked very thoughtful for  a moment, and then said slowly and  with an intonation of doubt, "Well,  I suppose an American is an alien,  but I never thought of it that way  before."���������London  Chronicle.

It is an ordinary incident at the  front, but shows that in the far-flung  battle line the Canadians arc doing  at least their share.  There have just arrived in London  several captains, mates and many  men who.served for years on Koote-  iiay Lakes and are now outfitting for  inland water service at the outermost  points of the Empire.  These are but a few examples of  what Canada may still do, if they  are allowcdto tell their friends at  home of their great adventures.  Take, best of all, the changes on  the western front, where for the railways wc still want thousands of  those men'who have been building  railways against Nature for the last  generation  in   Canada.

U.  1149  Religion on the Battlefield  A Bigger Thing on the Fighting Line  Than It Is at Home  Miss Nellie Burke was caring'for'a  French soldier, mortally Wounded. In  his delirium he addressed her as the  sweetheart he had left in some little  village of France.  "This war cannot last always, little  enc," he said, "and when it is over  .we will buy a pig and a cow and wc  will go to the cure, won't-wc, beloved?" And then, in a conscious moment, realizing that the war was over  for him, he began to repeat "Ave  Maria,"  The words halted on his lips, his  das-ed mind fumbled/-for the rest of  the familiar prayer; he turned to  Miss Inirkc to finish it for him.  Deeply moved she could not trust  her voice to speak.  A young Mohammedan surgeon,  educated in England, was supporting  the dying man with his arm. It was  lie who took up the, prayer, saying it  slowly as the soldier's lips followed  him; and thus the gulf between life  and death was bridged by a human  charity transcending all creeds.  Another incident is reported from  the same source. Rabbi Bloch, of  Lyons, was shot at the battle of the  Aisne while holding a crucifix to the  lips of a dying soldier.  Religion on the battlefield seems a  bigger thing than it often appears to  be at -home.  He Has no Nerves and He    Never  Worries  Air officer writes from the western  front in praise of the Canadian mule:  "Motor transport brought our supplies up from the depots, but it was  the mule - who caried them across  the torn battlefields .under constant  shelling and without showing- hesita-,  tion or fear. Where six: horses succumbed to the strain (these are official figures) only one mule was lost.  Where a horse wq.uId struggle frantically to extricate himself frotn a  crater and unless rescued in time  eventually die of a broken heart, a  mule would sit tight, like the one  mentioned above, and wait for supports. Where a horse collapsed  from shock, his nerves torn by the  incessant scream of shells, 'the 'mule  merely laid back his long cars, p/il  his head down and carried on. He  has no nerves and he nevcr_ worries.  *- I know of a mule which, in. crossing a field, absentmindedly kicked at  a'German "dud."' This mule certainly was, demobilized then and  there. But it is true that the blast  that heralded his passing did not_ even interest several of his companions  who were approaching behind. They  saw a comrade vanish in a whiff of  smoke, simply put their cars back,  and carried on. "The transport horse  is far more anxious to please," said  a student of mule psychology. "I  know horses that can accomplish, as  much as a mule and a half in the  same time, but they cannot raainlain  the ratio of speed."  Prussianized Poland  Civilian    From    Warsaw    Says    He  Would Rather Die Than Return  Only with great difficulty, and on  definite and approved* business  grounds, will the Germans allow  travellers from Poland to come westward.'The following interview, therefore, which was obtained, at Rotterdam with a certain Pole who had arrived from Warsaw cannot fail to be  of interest as giving a general idea,  from -which detail is necessarily omitted, of conditions in that cily and  other parts of Poland under the iGcr-  man heel:  "I would sooner die than return.-  By every possible mean's Germany is  Prussianizing Poland, refraining front  no methods to attain this end.

"I  would be a false friend," he said, "if  I did not warn the country that this  war is going to be Jong continued,  and the struggle even more bitter  than in the past. It can only be won  by everyone doing his utmost.  "The  three  things  most  vital    are  .money,  men  and  munitions.

"If the Patriotic Fund exists in  order to make it possible for my  maid to marry a soldier and "live  without working, it is about time to  declare that the Fund can get along,  without  my  help."  These are typical illustrations of  the line of argument not unfrc<iucnlly  met'���������;with by the workers for the  Fund. There seems to be an im-  p'ression abroad that the wives or  mothers of our soldiers should be  worse off, rather than better, when  the husbands are away. Suchca view  is taken, of course, only after a superficial examination of the case. The  wife lias given her husband to the  national cause, and she deserves well  at our hands. The Fund docs not  support her���������it merely creates a. margin of reasonable comfort. If a soldier's wife here or there gives up her  daily toil, that is a very inadequate  reason for condemning a Fund which  possesses a host of social service  workers who arc teaching thousands  of women lo be industrious, thrifty,  good house-wives, wise mothers, and  filling them with ambition' to have  happier homes than they ev^r knew  before.

The  matter would then be carried through  quickly in order that they might be'  able-to commence the plans and get  ready for beginning work after "the  war is ended.  Estimates placed the work at five  years and the cost at 1S(),000,000  pounds, half of which amount. would  be found by thc"British government  and half by France.    "  If, as estimated, five per cent, of  the two million passengers between  Britain-and ��������� France annually patronized the tunnel, the fares, mails and  goods conveyed would produce 1,-  583,000 pounds per annum and the  outgoings would be 420,000  pounds.  nusi have!

"I believe we arc going to sec tho  critical period of the war in the next  few months. We must face it with  courage.

"You must receive bad news equally with good news, with the samd  couragc, the same gameness, and the  same determination.

Helmet Resists  Rifle Bullets  ������s_  Effectiveness of the New Head Protection  Is Demonstrated  In a recent issue of the Scientific  American, Edward C. Crossman tells  how, one day during the first year of  the war, two mysterious strangers  ippcarcd at the testing station of a  big American manufacturer of explosives with a steel helmet which  they wished to have proved with a  service rifle. A marksman obligingly  produced # a regulation United States  army Springfield and at a distance of  50 yards drilled a nice little round  hole through the helmet. The helmet men thanked the rifleman and  left. Five or six limes after this  they returned and submitted their  helmet to a similar lest, and each  time the steel was neatly perforated.  Effectiveness' of the New Head Pro-  Finally a helmet was produced by  the visitors���������they came, it developed, from a famous Philadelphia steel  company���������of the same lightweight  steel submitted for the initial test,  which was dented by the bullet, but  which refused to let it through even  after repeated blows. Tlie aimy rifle  has a striking energy of 2,4.30 footpounds and-~a~ muzzle velocity of  2,700 feet per second. The rillcman  then changed his ammunition to  that of the Paliua type, which is of  180 in.-.iead of 150 grains, and has a  striking energy of 2,9000 foot-pounds.  The results were the same even after  repeated shots. The range was  shortened to 40 yards, at which distance the eighth shot shattered the  helmet after terrific pounding.  In all the tests the helmet had been  placed over a head-si_cd rock. Previously the writer, using the same  ammunition, had peiforaied '-4-inch  plates of boiler steel at 500 yards.  It is this helmet, apparently, "which  is now iu use by the allied armies.  Officials of the Frankfort arsenal  laughed at the reports ol ihe powder-  man and when the latter trii-d repeatedly to get one of the hc'u.cts  Ironr Philadelphia to prove the tiuth  of his statements his requests were  irel with a polite rcfus,il. Ihe helmet weiglis about si-c pounds, it is  said, and is made of some alloy like  tungsten, heal treated. "The shattering under tlie final blow indicated a glasslike hardness that -was still  devoid of the brittlesncss of most  very  hard and  thin  steel  plates."  The interest of Mr. Grossman's  siory lies in the fact that it has been  popularity supposed that the famous  trench helmets were for protection  only against shrapnel, which, of  course, has not the force or penetrating effect of a high speed rifle bullet. Inasmuch as the average  range of rifle fire on the western  front approximates 200 yards and,  in the tests, the blows against the  helmet were all delivered at right  angles, the effectiveness of the new  head protection may be imagined.  War-Time Thrift in Huniand  Practised  to    the     Minutest     Detail  Through the Exigencies of the  Situation  '  Many are the instances of German  war-time thrift recorded in Hc-rbeit  Bayard Swopc's "Inside the German  Empire" (Centuiy Co.). Nothing is  permitted to be carried off tlie battlefields as souvenirs, Mr. Swopc  says. The debris is carefully soiled  over, and every article that German  ingenuity can bring into usefulness  again is sent back lo the Quartermaster's  depot.  Throughout the Empire I here are  collecting stations for all sort"; of  old things���������old bottles, shoes, pieces  of rubber, news and wrapping papers, brass, steel, copper, tin, string,  rags���������nothing is thrown away. Once  a month these articles are gathered  up from every cily and village and  worked   over.  As lo the paternalism of the government, Mr. Swope says that it has  reached lhe point where c\cn the  houseyv'ivcs arc instructed at what  time they can out up their picservcs,  and in what quantities, and at what  prices they may buy llu-ir fruits.  Arable Land in Britain  Agricultural  Statistics  Furnish  Some  Interesting   Information  Agricultural statistics for 1916, just  issued by the Board of Agriculture,  .-.how that of thcr-Otal area of land in  .England and Wales (37,137,564 acres)  11,051,101 acres were returned as arable land, 16,022,983 acres as permanent grass, and 3j816,083 acres as  mountain . and heath land- used for  -.grazing in 1916. The increase in the  cultivated area, which amounted lo  20,984 acres, occured _ principally in  the Southwestern Division of England and iu Wales. The total number of agricultural holdings above  one acre in 1916 was 428,426. The  area under Wheat amounted to 1,-  912,208 acres, or about 12 per cent,  less than last year. The .area under  potatoes in-1916 was 421,984 acres, or  35,451 acres less than in 1915. The  area returned as bare fallow in 1916  was 421,886 acres, or 112,247 acres iu  excess of that of the previous year.  Horses on agricultural holdings, cattle, and sheep.showed increases, but  there was a considerable decrease in  the number of pigs as compared with  1915, a decline of nearly 10 1-2 per  cent.  Developing Resources  Directing  the   Work   of     Cultivating  Idle  Lands  in  Britain  Feeding Britain with home-grown  foodstuffs is the problem on which  three British governmental departments have been working in close cooperation. The Director of National Service,'the Agricultural Secretary,  and the Food Controller have their  plans almost completed, and they  promise a public declaration that  v ill be almost revolutionary. It is  remarkable how well the secret of  Britain's agricultural capacity has  been kepi. The Land Enquiry Com-  niiltoc has issued wonderfully com-,  [dele statistics rcearding c\ cry cultivated acre. Descriptions are rc-  inaikably complete and elaborate.  Anyone inquisitive about the kind of  soil, the leading crops, the yields per  r.cic, the conditions ol" cultivation, or  tiic price of pro'ducts can find all the  information desired. But when ii  conies to the uncultivated areas that  :"liould be yielding, there is a striking  dearth  of information  The men who are keeping land  idle for their own amusement or van-  itv, and, incidentally, keeping men  idle, aie most discreetly silent about  il. They succeed in diiecting all  statisticians elsewhere. Sonic ol"  llicm are fencnis off comfortable  areas in Canada and in the United  States, and in this, too, they arc not  con-ling the statistician or employing publicity agents. Evidently the  idle land has been discovered. The  Director of National Service, according to a classification of industries-as  as essential and non-essential, will direct the workers in the non-essential  to cultivate the land. Every man  and woman capable .of using a hoe  or doing the lightest farm work will  be enrolled in the civilian army. If  Britain adopts a wise land system it  should be a good omen for Canada  Wc- copied ��������� her (bad system, and  some of" her people are taking advantage of our folly, and we should be  equally imitative if" she sets a good  example.��������� Toronto  Globe.  Spoke Sixty Languages          (>  Wonderful Gift- of an Italian Whose  Ability Is Described as Prodi-  ��������� gious  The greatest of all linguilistic geniuses was undoubtedly Giuseppe Mez-  zofanti, who was born in 1774 and  who  died    in    1S49. Mezzofanti's  achievements c_ n be but feebly described as "prodigious." The question, as the Cincinnati Enquirer proposes il, is, not how many languages  did he know, but how many did he  not know? Not only could the wonderful Italian read 50 or 60 different  languages, besides many dialects,  but he could also speak and write  them with astonishing fluency.  In the journal of Byron, the poet,  there is a lively account of the test  to which he subjected the great linguist, whom he met in Rome. "Mcz-  zofanti," said Byron, "is a monster  of languages. He is, indeed, a marvel. I tried, him in all the tongues  of which I knew a -ingle oath (or  adjuration to the gods against post  boys, savages..

Food Value of Milk  To Train Airmen Here  Surprised   Dinner Party '  In a recently published book, Sir  Henry Luck has a charming story of  the late Canon Aingcr. The canon  was very fond of children, and set-  out one night to attend a party given  by "children  for children."  "Don't announce mc," he said to tlie  scrvanl.

Royal Flying Corps  It is officially announced that a  wing of the imperial royal flying  corps is to be formed in Canada.  This wing* will consist of squadrons  for training purposes to be recruited  entirely in Canada and. officered, as  far as possible, with Canadian officers  sent  back from  overseas. V  On completion of preliiuinarj*.  training, candidates will be sent to"  England for higher training, and,- after successfully passing the test,  will bo given commissions as flying  officers in the royal flying, corps.  The scheme is to enable candidates  to have instruction in flying free of  expense.  The machines '-will be built in Canada, and, as far as possible, material  and plant will be purchased in the  Dominion. It is stated that "_3.000  skilled mechanics will be required to  form the personnel of these squadrons .  How State Secrets Are Kept  Important   Documents    Guarded    by  Various Ingenious Devices  In war time there arc numerous  important slate secrets which must  be prevented from leaking out, and  they arc guarded by various ingenious devices. For instance, in British government offices the writings  on important documents is dried by  means of roller blotters. These con-  si*-t of revolving cylinders covered  with blotting paper, which arc run  over with wet ink. The writing is  impressed on the cylinder in a confused jumble, impossible to decipher,  as would be the case if the ordinary  flat blotter were used. In some  cases black blotting paper is used  to dry official letters, as it is much  safer than  the pink or white variety.  Important telegrams, if not in code,  often ha\ c lo be guarded from prying eyes by government officials.  For this purpose they use a simple  little invention which consists of a  telegraph form prepared with a perforated gummed edge. The message  having been written, the form is  folded over and the edges gummed  elown, as in the case of a letter card,  anel its contents are hidden from the  messenger who carries it to the telegraph  office.  Each battleship carries a book of  code signals, which holds the meaning of the little flags which flutter  at the masthead when ships communicate. The code book is of immense importance, and strict precautions are taken against it falling  into the hands of the enemy. Each  volume is heavily weighted . with  lead in the cover, so that in an emergency it can be thrown into the sea  with the certainty that it will sink.

Canada cannot  yet be calleel. an industrial country,  its development having been mainly  along agricultural lines, it is certain  that it will not be long before its  industrial development ^ will sho.v  great expansion. In this connection,  a census taken during 1916 of the  manufacturers of "the west contains'  some very interesting figures. The  preliminary results of this census  show that in the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and  British Columbia, there were 2,886  manufacturing- establishments, capitalized at $313,571,000, "with 59,957  employees drawing a total annual  wage or'-salary of $36,732,000. The  total output of'thesc plants amounted in value to $180, 958,000, and the  sum of $109,603,000 was reported as  having been spent in the purchase of  raw material.

Three Quarts" of Skim Milk Equal to  One Pound  of Sirloin  "Dairy Farming," prepared by C.  H. Eckles, professor of dairy husbandry at Missouri University, and  C. F. Warren, professor of farm  management at Cornell, is intended  primarily as a text book for use in  colleges and - schools in which agriculture is a branch of study. The  scope of usefulness of the work is,  however, much wider than that. The  facts given in regard to the care and  feeding of a dairy herd are such as  should be within reach of every  dairy farmer. What is said as to tlie  value of milk as food should be  known  to  every  city  householder.  This latter point is dealt with in  the first chapter of the book'. In every corner of the habitable globe", we  are told, animal nrilk of some kind is  used to sustain human life. Where-  ever cattle can be maintained or af;  "forded" the milk of the 'cow is used;  where people are very poor the milk  of goats or' sheep is utilized, and  wdierc cows will not thrive, as-in'the  Philippines or parts of South America, the water buffalo or the llama is  made  use of.  It is not surprising that'the use of  milk is worldwide, because it is one  of the most valuable of foods. The  average milk of the cow, although  nominally a liquid, really contain-*.  12 to 13 per cent, of dry niatter.*"-This  is about double the proportion of  dry matter found in a turnip and is  equal lo one-third of that found in  the edible portion of a beef animal.  A quart of milk contains two-thirds  as much energy as a pound of sirloin  steak, although the latter costs over  three times as much as the former.  Even a quart of skim milk has over  one-third-lhc energy value of a pound  of sirloint and it contains twice the  bone-forming material that is found  in beefsteak thus .making it a peculiarly valuable form of fooel for the  young.  "If," say the authors, " much that  is spent on meat were spent for mill-  one could be as well "fed at less cost.  If much of the money that is spent  .for tea, coffee, alcohol and other  stimulants that have little or no food  value were spent for milk our health  and our wealth woulel both be improved."  Approximately, the authors say, 288  quarts of^milk are used per person  per year in the average farm family,  against 112 in the city, and it is  quite possible, liicy b.c-lievc, that this  accounts for the better development  of children on the farm. But cily  pcople_arc coming to understand tlu  food value of milk. In New York  city the per capita consumption has  increased by a third in '-twenty years.  Butter is an especially valuable  form of "food, containing as'it does  three and two-thirds as much energy  as a pound of sirloin steak: . It has,  too, the further advantage of being  easy of digestion.  In cow population in proportion to  human" population Denmark,: loads  the world haying, one cow to two  persons. Japan is about at the other,  eiid of'the line, having one cow to  seventy to one hundred 'people.. It  must be remembered, however, that  Japan;-is an importer of dairy products while Denmark is largely exporter of-the same. In consumption  of-dairy products in proportion to  population the United States and  Canada probably lead. In the Linked States there is one cow for every  four anda half persons, against one  to five in France and Holland, one to  six in Germany, and one tb eleven in  the British Isles. Britain .is, of  course, a large importer of dairy products while in the United States, in  normal-times, imports and exports  about balance.  Not only does the dairy cow, produce one- of the most .valuable. of  human foods, but she is an economical producer. The amount of food  required to bring a 1,200 pound steer  to the finished state would, if fed lo  dairy cows, produce three times as  much, in human nourishment. . Still  another coii.nl stands to the credit of  the cow*. A dairy herd assists in  evening up employment the year-  round and furnishes a source of income in what would otherwise, on  iho farm, be the dull months of win  tcr.���������Toronto   Globe. '  Mexicans First  Used Aeroplanes  Were First to Appreciate Value and  Employ Aeroplanes  in  Actual  Warfare  It  will'-Surprise  many    people    to  learn   that  the   Mexicans    were    .the  first in "the world to appreciate"    the.  value of and to 'employ an aeroplane  in actual warfare.   ���������  Mexico's first war aviator, and  hence the first in "the world, was. an  American, the late Capt. Hector  Wordcn. Wordcn was .well known  through exhibition .flights,.a.nd was  a skillful pilot. . In 1911 he was engaged by the Mexican government  to do bomb -dropping, scouting and  the rest of it.  Aeroplanes were not as dependable-  then as they are now, and    .Wordcn  was   given   a   salary   of   ,$1,500     per  month and commissioned captain ,in#-  Madero's forces.  Encouraged by JWordcri's    siicccs*.,  in-1912 the Mexican government'sent -  three  army  officers   to   the    aviation  field at Mincola,. L.I., to learn to fly.  These yotihg men���������Alberto and Gustavo  Salinas, and  Iguacio Ruiz���������rapidly" developed into brilliant aviators..  The   Salinas   boys,   nephews   of   Gen.  Carranza,   at   present   hold   responsible positions under the Carranza government.       One is  chief of artillery. .  and the other.chief of aviation.  Both^  hitve given up their'actual flying,-but  their experience and knowledge have  proved invaluable.  The next aviator to; go to Mexico  was Diddcr-Masson, a Frenchman  who had adopted the United Stales  as his home. Me took his crated  machine from Los Angeles "to .Tus-  con, Ariz., and managed to smuggle  it  across  the  border.  The lale'Charlcs V. Nilcs then interested himself in Mexican affairs.  Nilcs was famous as a trick flyer, and  his work marked him one* of tlie most  eccentric and reckless men in the'  game. When Xilcs went to Mexico  the Carranza regime was just dawning and 'he worked in conjunction  villi a fairly well organized army.  After several narrow escapes from  death through forced landings in the  ciense undergrowth, and also because  exhibition flying appealed lo hint  more strongly than being shot at,  lie returned to the States. Shortly  after, he performed marvelous aerial-  feats at the Panama-Pacific exposition, following that with . a very  successful lour of Japan���������.

And yet, it is  difficult lo avoid feeling some little  regret over the fact that the general  adoption of such a scheme would, at  once, do away with a wonderful  field for the exercise of .ingenuity.

Bolts and screws can be purchased in boxes of assorted grades  and sizes. The loss of a nut or  breakage of a small part while engaged in the field may mean also the  loss of the use of not only the implement, but the team, the hireel  help, and probably of the opportunity  during favorable weather to "perforin  the work which had been planned.

Canada at War  " The Blonde Beast"  German Philosopher Described    The  Teuton Butcher Very  Clearly  How many people who use the  term "the blonde beast" to describe  the Teutonic butcher, can say offhand in "what connection and by  whom it was first used?  The question-was raised a day or  two ago in a well-known London  club, and the Erudite Member told  his hearers to look in "The Genealogy of -Morals," by the German philosopher Nictzchc. Due search led  to the discovery of the passages in  which this truthfully descriptive epithet  first  appeared.  When the Germans discard the last  traces of superficial civilization "they  revert," says Nietzchc, "to the beast  of^prcy's innocence of conscience,  anel become.rejoicing monsters, who  perhaps go on their way, after a hideous sequence of inurdci, conflagration, violation, torture, with as much  gaiety and equanimity as if they had  merely taken part in some student|  gambols. Deep in the nature of all  these noble races there lurks unmistakably tire beast of prey, the blond**-  beast, lustfully roving in search of  booty and victory. From time to  time the beast demands an outlet,  an escape, a return lo the wilderness.  That the lambs should bear a grudge  against the great birds of prey is in  no way surprising; but that is no  reason why we should blame the  great birds of prey for picking up  the little lambs."���������London Daily  7 clegraph.'  Canada's Loyalty Is Called Wonderful by U. S. Newspaper  A brief despatch from Ottawa  gives incidentally the total enlistment  in Canada for the European war, putting the figures at 387,409. This includes the enrollment of the last  week or.ilwo, which is said to have  been showing a renewed inclination  among the Dominion's people lo offer their services for overseas fighting, a change in tendency that evoked  the despatch  mentioned.  The enlistment of 387,409 is fairly  amazing when all the facts are considered. It is 4.7 per cent, of the  w-liole population and at, the same  ratio of enlistment from Great Britain and Ireland would have been by  this time three arid a quarter millions.-  Few estimates of the British contribution to allied forces-put the number as high as. three millions. All  these estimates take in the colonial  contributions. If figures are a guide,  the colonials in Canada are more loyal to the empire than are the inhabitants of the motherland itself.

Zeppelin Raiders Must Be Scientific  : It is not generally recognized that  besides the dangers which fire from  the enemy subjects Zeppelin raiders  'to, there is extreme hardship to be  endured and- also a grave peril which  is inherent in the dirgible itself because-of the high altitude at which ii  must fly. At the great altitude necessary the.' cold is so severe that the  men arc covered with icicles. . The  danger is great, for, apart' from the  shells; the rareness of the air causes  it. to penetrate into the gas holders,  with the consequence that the hydrogen and oxygen form an explosive  gas mixture which catches fire from  the least spark. For this reason, the  men have to wear felt boots, as nailed  boots might draw a spark by touching some metal object in the gondola. It is almost impossible to send  the same crew on two successive expeditions, for their nerves will not  stand it. -  The German Idol  Hindenburg Eclipses the Kaiser" in  -   "      Eyes of Germans  The extent to which Hindenburg is  eclipsing the German Emperor is  being much remarked upon throughout Germany, says the Zurich correspondent of the Central News. It  is Hindenburg who has the courage  to tell the German people that their  production of munitions is being  overtopped by the Allies; it is Hindenburg, not fjohcnzollcrn, who, after two and-a"half years of warfare,  demands of the German people the  great sacrifice of the levy en masse.  The Kaiser, at this critical of all mq-  menls, is content to remain in the  background, leaving Hindenburg to  command not only "1113- armies," but  also "my people."  Not all the blood of lhev Hohen-  zollcrns has been able to save the  Emperor William from eclipse at this  supreme crisis.  At the present moment Hindenburg  appears in German eyes as Bismarck  anel Moltkc rollcel into one. "Hindenburg has confidence," says a manifesto issued by the German Union  of Agriculturists, "and.with, him and  by him all the German people have  confidence in  the agriculturists."  Not only; the Kaiser himself but  the whole Plohenzollern dynasty is  suffering eclipse as a result of this  great war'which now clearly threatens the downfall of Prussian.militarism. I hear on every side that, especially since his ignominious failure  at Verdun, the Crown Prince is spoken of everywhere in Germany in  terms of contempt.

The Pric^of Milk  The  Hard  Conditions"that  Confront  Farmers in These Times  I have noticed the articles appearing in the Public .Ledger on the production and price of milk, and consider-it altogether unreasonable to  expect further concessions from farmers who arc, already only getting  fifty per cent, of the cost to ,the consumer. 1 could feed three or four  more cows, but I'm not going to  work for nothing. If the city people want to eat tallow instead of paying the farmer a living price for butter they may also look up other  sources for milk.  If the young folks In <the city  were������obliged to work early and late  like farmers' sons ' and daughters  must, feeding and caring for cows,  they would, consider their compensa- _  tion  meager.  The only man wlro can figure profit out of a dairy now is the one who  grows nearly all his grain feed and  has family help not on salary. City  .folks need not start a howl about the  cost of milk, meat and produce at  prevailing prices. Farm produce has  not yet reached the limit of high  prices. So long as the rural population, is getting more depleted, and  people want to be where the band  plays, don't pin any faith in a reduced cost o'f living. It appears to me  that any human being of ordinary  common sense should be able to discern the trend oi advanced prices of  beef, pork, dairy products and vegetables.  Our country population formerly  was figured at about forty per cent.  I have recently learned that it is falling rapidly, and those who arc in the  uiral districts arc, like the city folks,  getting the motoring fad and neglecting their work and their church.  Some day you will sec such mischief summed up iu gigantic figures  ���������not merely in the waste of time  and funds. There are still greater  evils indirectly caused when our attention is diverted from its usual  course of duties.  The best advice I can give a city  man who kicks about 'the cost of  milk or vegetbles is to get some  gumption about him, move to lhe  country, and farm. If he can pro-  eiuce milk for less than fourteen  cents a gallon lie is going some. If  he can control the rainfall and make  crops grow* just as he wants them  thai will be all right. He will not  adopt an eight-hour day during the  growing season, but if he is careful  works hard anel with good management grows harvests and stores for.  the. winter, he can have his ratio of  leisure; but not when the big crowds  are on the,boardwalk;���������!").

"The keyhole- was in th-  shapc of a swan; others in the town,  and all through Narino, have the  form of a man, horse, goose and a  dozen other ltielicrous shapes.

She knew, however, that  he would be able lo sec nothing,  even if he were to adopt the primitive method by which little Julius  had learned the presence of his father; for warned by experience, Mrs.  Lowndes had moved the bedstead on  which Ciprian lay, so that il could  not be seen from outside by peeping  through the keyhole. i  But this was small comfort.

ST. VITUS DANCE  AFFECTS MAM CHILDREN  This Trouble Can be Cured Through  the Use of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills  St. Vitus Dance is much more com-  igon than is generally imagined. The  trouble is often mistaken for mere  nervousness, or awkwardness. It usually attacks young , children, most  often between the ages of si-, and  fourteen���������though older persons may  be affected with il. The most common symptom is twitching of the  muscles of the face and limbs. " A.s  the disease progresses this twitching  takes the form of spasms in which  the jerking motion may be confined  to the head,' or all the limbs may be  affected. The patient is frequently  unable to hold anything in the hands  or walk steadily, and in severe cases  the speech may be affected. The  disease is due to imoovcrishcel nerves, owing to the blopd being out of  condition and can be cured by the use  of Dr. Williams'. Pink Pills, which enrich the blood, strengthen the nerves,  and in this way restore the sufferer  to good health. Any symptom _ of  nerve trouble in young children should be promptly treated as' it is almost sure  to lead to St.-Vitus Dance. The fol  lowing is proof of the power of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills to cure this  trouble. Miss flattie Cumniings, R.  R. No. 3, Petcrboro,. Ont., says:���������"I  was attacked with what the doctor  said was St. Vitus Dance. Both my  hands trembled so as to practically  ui__less. Then the trouble wcntr>. lo  my left side, and from that to my  right leg, and left me in such a condition that I was not able to go out  of the house. I look the doctor's  medicine without getting any "benefit.  Then I tried another remedy with the  same poor results. At this stage I  was advised to try Dr. Williams' -Pink  Pills'and elid so, with the result that  they fully restored me to health, and  Ihave hot had "The slightest symptom  of nervous-.trouble since.1 I can re--  commend these pills to anyone who  is suffering from nervous trouble, and  hope, they, will profit by my experience."

Tlie question under eonsidorn-  tion    is  tho   niiiiiDcr  in   which  campaign -.fi'iiid.**** are soon rod ,-ind  disbursed by party agents.

"Who over heard  ol! a. great -railway corporation  practising charily" (o lhe extent  of" providing a campaign manager 'wil.li   thousands  oi" dollars  to grease the "itching palms" of  the free and  independent electorate ? The  railroad   company  expects   substantia!   favors   in  return; for generous donations  to  the  campaign  fund, and all  denials on  the  part, of the men  who  disburse; lliese   funds will  not alter" this simple, -self-evident proposition.  Remember Avo do not contend  that  the funds are always disbursed in the  manner intended  by  the   generous   donors.    On  the  contrary,   it  is more than  likely that the campaign manager retains seventy-five per cent  of the fund for his  own expenses  in   distributing judiciously  the remaining 25 per cent.    We  are quite aware that there is a  theory that much   of  the  campaign fund is distributed among  tlie -'reptile press," which is thus  retained to rouse the conscience  and   soul   of   the electorate, as  one speaker expressed it during  the  recent election,  but if the  publishers of   the   newspapers  told the truth, they would perhaps disprove  this theory, and  explain    that   the   only 'news  papers that benefit by campaign  funds are0those  owned  or controlled by the campaign manager or some of his bosom friends.

This applies   in   a  great  measure to both parties, so that  the attempt  of  the Liberals to  prove  that   Conservatives   are|  thieves and black-mouthed cor-  i uptionists or  Conservatives "to  prove the same charges against  Liberals, will   not  deceive anyone who has  ever taken an active part   on 'either side  in  a  political campaign.  The evidence brought out at  the commission investigating  the���������relationship between the  late government and the P. G.  & "E., or the charges made  against members of the house  on tlie floor of the legislature  are. not likely to stir the souls  of the incorruptible electorate.

The time may not lie far distant when the conscience of the  honest people will be aroused,  and when that time comes there I  will be a day of reckoning for  many of the rascals who are  now posing as honest men, and  these' harrangues about the  honor of the legislature will not  ayai.f'tliem much, for the way  of the transgressor is hard,  "Ye  C.

" I-'oi- ye  are like vnto   whiled si-pul-  ehi-es, which indeed appear beautiful  outward, but are within full of dead  men's bones and of all unele'inness,"  "Even  so ye also outwardly appear-  righteous unto   men, but  within ye  are full of hypocrisy and iniquity,"  The    charges    and    countercharges of bribery and corruption  against supporters of the  government and thoso members  who arc  alligned  with the opposition will not have the effect  of creating in the minds of the  electorate the belief that either  side has a monopoly of honesty  and  integrity.    Indeed,  in   the  last   analysis   the   suspicion   is  likely to be aroused that many  members   of   the  present   and  former  legislatures   have   been  guilty    of   monstrous   wrongs  which  could only bo  expiated  by something akin to a general  jail delivery.    The most amusing, or perhaps amazing would  better express it, feature of the  situation is tho hypocrisy with  which one side will condone its j regretted by every one in the  own offenses and in the same province.
