What the British people hope  and expect, and their feelings  have been divined by the king,  is that both now and for the  future the royal family shall be  British all through and in all  the relations of life.

AV. J. Cormack, Sec-Treas.  Conservative   Convention.  A Conservative convention is  called to meet. at 3 p. m. in the  town hall, Keremeos, Saturday,  August llth, for the1 purpose of  selocting a candidate to contest  Similkameen riding for the  local legislature. A full representation is requested.  D. McCurdy, President.  Are Good Cows Misjudged?  Recently three cows that  stood side by side were tested  for nine consecutive milkings.  The first cow had an average  test of 3.7 per cent of fat, the  mtiximum and minimum tests  being 2.9 and 5.5.  The second cow had an average for the nine tests of 4 2,  with maximum and minimum  tests of 2.4 and 5.4. The average test for the third cow was  2.6, with extremes of 2.0 and  4.0. Hence it is evident that  the laudable desire to know  what a certain cow's milk tests  for fat may be defeated entirely  if only one sample is run  through the machine.  In the light of the examples  given above, as well as of hundreds of other instances on record, it is safe to conclude that  a fair method is to test a complete sample of five or six milkings taken at intervals when  the cow is in normal condition.  This plan has given good results in tho cow-testing work  of the daiiy division, Ottawa.

It is known  as the "Turtle Auto." not from its  laik of spceo, but from its shape.  The car is so designed that every  part is cuived in such a way that a  projectile* will glance off. No ma ler  from what side or angle a .shell is  fired, the curved lines of the Turtle  au'o will offer but a slight resistaice.  The bullet uill glance up or down  or  horizontally.  The driver sees through a periscope and is entirely protected from  bullcis. Besides the chaffeur the car  contains four soldiers who wield  rifles through small portholes an I  man a four inch -*-un that can be fired  at any angle, ft will be interesting to  learn what weapon or device the  Germans will evolve to combat the  ''Turtle car," which is said lo have  been the invention  of an  Autiiicnn.

Lumberman's  Food Shortage in Germany  Three     Hundred      Thousand     Poor  Children in Berlin  There is no need to cxaggciale the  hunger condition of the Fatherland,  it is revealed day by day in the  press, and the following are a feu  facts culled from (he most reputable  papers in lierlin and clsewheic: 125,-  000 Berlin woikcrs struck as a protest aganist tlic reduced bread ration;  bakers' shop windows were smashed  and their contents greedily devoured  by famished boys and girls; many  towns are prohibiting the ariival of  visitors, and it is a crime to smuggle  food into such towns; Lanshul, iu Silesia, has notified the summer resorts within its jurisdiction that they  must not catci for guests this year;  and Berlin has set apart $250,000 lo  defray the expense of sending 300,-  000 children into I be country to obtain nourishment and fresh air.

MEN AND WOMEN  Need  the Rich, Red Blood Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills Actually  Make  Thin-blooded people do not remain  so front choice but from indifference,  in sonic cases from despair. I'coplc  v. ho are pale, languid, with palpitation of the heart, some difficult}- in  breathing and a tendency to be easily  tired arc suffering from thin blood.  They need only the resolution lo take  the right treatment and stick to il until cured. The remedy that can be  relied upon is Dr. 'Williams' Pink  Pills for Pale People. Wilh every  dose they make new blood, and new  blood means health and strength.  The red cheeks, good appetite, increased weight and strength that follow the use of these pills prove their  great value lo thin-blooded people.  Here is an example: Airs.

At  Conscription in U. S.  Rude and Harsh Measures arc Necessary in War Time  In legalizing conscription during  the war by an overwhelming majority in both houses congress has exhibited the common sense and the  power of quick adjustment which in  an emergency Americans can usually  be depended on to exhibit. War is a  rude and harsh business, and people  who decide lo wage war must folio.v  up the decision with rude and harsh  measures. The authorization of recruiting by compulsion is interpreted  by one group as a triumph for democracy* and by another as its irretrievable defeat. It is neither. Congress  has not accepted the principle of universal military service; it has only  adopted the expedient of a selective  draft during the war. As soon as the  war is over the question as-to how  American armies are lo be recruited  will be rc-opened; and a new decision  will have to be reached based upon  international political conditions at  that time and the enduring international responsibilities of the United  States.���������From the New Republic,  on   llti'scs,   Catlle,  &c,   quickly  cured   bv  EGYPTIAN   LINIMENT  For S.ilc by All Dealers  Doiifjla*.   ft   Co.,   Piop'ra,   Napance,   Ont.

'There's a Season"  for  s.  War as Tuberculosis Cure  in  Outdoor  Life  of Soldiery  Results  Remarkable  Cures  Sonic mouths ago the British medical journal told remarkable tales of  recoveries from tuberculosis made by  British soldiers in France. Now it is  interesting to read the opinions expressed at the New York Academy  of Medicine that tubercular persons,  unless seriously affected, need not  expect to be exempt from conscrip-  ticn on account of physical disabili  ty. Sir William Osier was quoted lo  the effect that army life often results  in  a complete cure of  tuberculosis.  Tuberculosis   is   an   indoor  disease.  a   disease   that   follows   man's   stupid  habit   of   shutting   himself     off     wilh  glass  and   walls   from   fresh   air    n-rl  t'-.nshinc.

At  the  time   the   retort  Mas   made   the.   proper  answer     was,  Har,   bar!"     Now,   there   is   another  answer.    Several  authorities  are  pre-  .ncling a  war  that will  lasl  for  two  or   three  years  more.   The   latest   of  them   is   Lord   Norlhcliffc,     who   has  been   astonishingly    correct     as     regards  the development of the war in  many phases.    He thinks lhe war will  continue  for  some  lime   yet.     In   an  article^ he  contributes  for     the   New  York Tiibunc he makes a comparison  .with   the   American   Civil   War.     He  says  that in   that" conflict  both   sides  Mere   unready  and   that  it  continued  for four years.    AI the outset il had  been  expected by some  optimists  lo  lasl   for  six   weeks.    He  argues   that  the measure of preparedness is to be  considered wheys  the probable length  ol   the   war  is  being  discussed.   .   In  other words, if the unprepared South  aga-inst   tremendous   odds,   could   last  four   years,   how   long   can   Germany  hold   out,   having- prepared   for   fortv  ycars?  When  Lord  Norlhcliffc   writes   for  American   readers   a   reasonable    discount is  necessary.  He loves Ameri-  1 can  rcadcis, which is .natural for any  writer.   He also wants American readers  to  love him, and in the process  he   will   not   spare   his   own   countrymen.   On the whole, Lord -NorthclihV  is doing  a good work in  lhe United  States   through   the   medium     of   the  papers- which   carry   his   opinions   to  the nation.    Two years ago  his papers   were" thrown  out   of   clubs     and  hotels;  he was  burned in  cfiigy,   and  was   for  a  few weeks   competitor  of  Hindenburg for the prize of the best-  hated man in England.

Zangwill won the support of Jos-  cj.li Chamberlain -and Winston  Uiurchill to his. colonization scheme  beiore the war, but South Africa,  -anada and Australia opposed it in  turn. A Jewish nation in Palestine  is another mailer.  The menace which Turkish possession of Palestine offers Egypt and  the trade route to India must be removed, British statesmen agree, liven ��������� before the war many considered  the recreation-of the Jewish state  the best solution. Opinion changed,  however, during the war, largely because of the sympathy many Jews of  German origin in America admitted  for Germany. It was feared that a  nation sympathetic toward Germany  would be a dangerous one to have  so close lo this strategic link in the  l-iilish  Empire.  The Russian revolution has changed  this.    Jewish  sympathy,  alienated  1 by the treatment of the Jcwsrin Russia  under   the   old   regime,   has   been  wo-i back by  the" new regime. Jacob  Sc'iiff's   declaration   for    the    Allies,  following  the  announcement by    the  [ rovisional    government      of    equal  lights   for  the  Jews  iu  Russia,    was  uotlhe only one to  come to the attention of the British government. A  lewisii  stale in  Palestine now would  be  a  fiiendly,   even  grateful  state,  it  is  believed. ~"  Zangwill's idea of an American  protectorate is based on the desire  that Jewish interests should be protected bv a-'grcat power that had no  interest titer c lo serve. Whether  such a protectorate would appeal to  Prilish statesmen is doubtful.

The above callous "description of a  German corpse exploitation esiablish-  r lent situated behind the enemy lines  north of Ivheims, was published recently in the London Times. It was  furnished by Herr Kail Rosncr, special coi respondent of the B_ihn Lo-  kalan/cigei   on  t-re  western front.  This statement corroborates a  sinking account of this new and horrible ticrnian industry which appeared in the Indcpendance Beige for  Apiil 10, as extracted from La Bclgi-  que,  of  Leydcn,  in   Holland.  This version, omitting some of the  most repulsive details, is as follows:  "Wc have known for long that the  Germans stripped their dead behind  the firing line, fastened them into  bundles of three or four bodies with  iion wire, and then despatched these  giisly bundles to the rear. Until recently the trains laden with the dead  were sent to Seiaing, near Liege, and  a point north 'of Brussels, wheie  were refuse consumers. Much surprise was causeel by the fact that of  late this traffic has proceeded in the  direction of Gerolstcin, and il was  noted that on each wagon was written T>. A. V.G.'  "German science is responsible for  the ghoulish idea of the formation of  the German Offall Utilization Company, Limited, or 'Deutsche Abfall-  Vcrwertungs Gesellschaft,; a dividend  earning company with a capital of  250,000 pounds, the chief factoiy of  which has been constructed 1,000  yaids from the railway connecting  St. Vith, near the Belgian frontier,  wilh Gerolstcin, in the lonely, little  frequented Eifcl distiict, southwest  of   Coblentz. This     factoiy   deals  s' ccially with the dead from the west  front. If tlie results are as good as  the company hopes, another will be  established to d'-al with corpses on  the cast front.  "The factory is invisible from the  l ail way. It is placed deep in forest  ce unlry, wilh a specially thick giowth  of trees about il. Live wires surround it. A special double tiack  leads to it. The works are about 700  feet long and 110 feet broad, and the  railway runs completely round them.  ln lhe northwest corner of the works  the discharge of the trains lake place.  "The trains arrive full of bare bodies, which are unloaded by the workers who live at the works. The men  wear oilskin overalls and masks with  mica eyepieces. They arc equipped  with long hooked poles, and push the  bundles of bodies to an endless chain,  vvtiich picks them with big hooks, attached at intervals of 2 feet. The  bodies arc transported on this enelles.  chain into a long, narrow compartment, where they pass through a bath  which disinfects them.  "They then go through a drying  ' chamber, and finally are automatically carried into a digester or great  cauldron, in which they are dropped  by an apparatus which detaches them  fiom the chain. In the digester they  remain from six to eight hours, and  arc treated by steam, which breaks  them up while they aie slowly .stirred  by machinery.  "From this treatment result several  products. The fats aie broken up into stcarine, a form of* tallow, and  oils, which require to be redistilled  before they can be used. The oro-  cess of distillation is carried out by  boiling the oil with carbonate of soda, and some part of the by-products  rc-ulting from this is used by German soapmakcrs. The oil distill *ry  and refinery lie in the southeastern  corner of the works. The refined oil  is sent out in small casks like those  used for petroleum-, and is *f a yellowish brown color.  "The fumes are exhausted from  the buildings by electric fans, and  are sucked through a great pipe to  the northeastern cornti. where they  are condensed and the refuse resulting is discharged into a sewer. There  is no high chimney, as the boiler furnaces are supplied with air by electric fans.  "There is a laboratory, and in  charge of the works is a chief chemist with two assistants tnd _ men.  All the employees are soldiers and  are attached to the 8th At my Corps.  There is a sanatorium by the works,  and under no pretext \a any man permitted to leave them. , Th'y are  guarded as prisoner- .at. their appalling work."  It will be remembered, comments  the Times, that one of the American  Consuls, on leaving Germany in February, stated in Switzerland that the  Germans were distilling glycerine for  nitrogen-glycerine from the bodies of  their dead, and thus were obtaining  6ome part of their  explosives.  Why Grain   Markets   Soar  The  Great Factors That  Cause    the  Rapid Advance in Price  of Foodstuffs  There is not much lo say these  days along the lines of a coiupaia-  tive lcview of Lhe markets, but while  the high prices of grain arc uppermost in eveiyonc's mind it is well  lo consider some statements made  in a speech delivered in the Ottawa  house on May 10 by Hon. Crothcrs,  minister of labor. He said in the  couisc  of  his  address:  "1 am going to lake this opportunity of lepeating what I have saiel  before, because, perhaps, it will stand  repeating. We have today, in all  piobability, 40,000,000 men nuclei  <Tiiib who have been withdrawn from  productive work and who are now-  engaged in destructive work. It has  been said that as soldiers they consume SO per cent, more than they  would as civilians. That means if  these figures are anywhere near  right, and they are only approxi-/  mate, that 60,000,000 are eating and*  producing nothing, 40,000,000 of them  lighting and destroying everything  iv sight, human life as well as property. There are 60,000,000 consuming and 40,000,000 producing nothing  anel destroying wherever they go.  Before this war broke out we did  not have any foodstuffs to spare. Nobody thought of dumping shiploads  of them into the ocean because^ we  had more than humanity required.  Well, then, you remove 40,000,000  men not all of them agricultuiists,  but a gicat many of them agriculturists, anel employ them at destructive lather than productive work,  and the result is inevitable. In addition to that wc hael last jear a  shorter ciop the world over than we  had had for a great many ycais, a  thousand million bushels of wheat  less last year than the year before.  Millions of tons of food have been  se-nl to the bottom of the ocean.  What do we reasonably expect to result from that���������a falling off of 40,-  000,000 workmen consuming 50 per  ccnt. more than if they were civilians, and a short crop the world over?  "Here you have, I submit, the great  factors causing the rapid advance iu  the cost of foodstuffs. I admit there  may be���������anel there is���������some ground  for holding that lo a slight extent  cold sloiage and combines, or something of that kind, may affect the  prices, but to a very slight extent."  Some of Mi. Crothcrs' figuics may  require modification, but on the  whole they are substantially correct  and form the veiy best reason why  foodstuffs  are  dear.

He was  picking the earth wilh his cane, and  occasionally lifted a clod or a shell  case or a piece of planking, anl looked solemnly underneath. You might  have thought he was looking for bait.  I asked him if he had lost something. "No," he replied, "but I a-n  looking for something. What I want  are dugouts." He wrent on prodding  the ground.

German countryside  emanating from the frontier correspondent of the Amsterdam Handels-  blael. The correspondent declares  that the supply of labor is shrinking  continuously, that fertilizer is lacking an*d fodder articles are extremely  scarce   and   exorbitantly   dear.  Seed and planting material, he  says, are insufficient, and owing to  the lack of male laborers agricultural operations arc much too late  and inadequately performed, while no  proper draft animals are obtainable,  even at outrageously high prices.  The milk yield, the correspondent  aelds, has fallen more than one-half  and the quality is much depreciated.  It is a mournful sight, he said, to  see so many fields lying fa'low.  Owing lo -the severe winter barley  and oats have suffered much, and art  five weeks behind former years. The  new crop, the correspondent concludes, consequently' will be less than  in  previous  years,   the very imfavor-  no bigger than a walnut. As he work-' able spring having also caused delay,  ed his stick in it~a clump became detached and fell into the b .wcls of the  earth, leaving a jagged hole a foot in  diameter.  "What ho!

The  answer to that may be seen iu the  devastated fields and ruined cities of  France, Belgium, Poland, Serbia and  Roumania. Wherever the German  armies have gone they have left behind  them a  trail  of horror such  as  the world l.as not seen since the  power of the Turks and the Tartars  declined. Remembering what ruin  German invasion brings, the first  thought of every American in his  sober senses must be thai: German  invasion must be prevented from ever reaching this country..The place  to defend the United States from invasion is not within- the United States  but in Europe. We cannot, therefore,  admit a right of any citizen soldier to  be kept at home unless he volunteers  to go abroad. To do so vvoulel be to  abandon tb.e entire principle of the  equal obligation of all citizens to defend  the country.���������Buffalo  Express.  For Vegetable Growers  Experimental     Farm     Note     Gives  Right Hints to Enterprising  'Amateur Farmers  Jtxperiments to determine the best  varieties of vegetables to grow have  been conducted on the experimental  farms for many years. Seed has  been secured each year from the best  seedsmen in Europe and America.  As a result tlie lists of vegetables  recommended in the' Experimental  Farm reports arc a good guide to  the gardener in purchasing'his seeds.  During the past two seasons additional experiments have been added,  such as trying out different distances  to thin certain vegetables, best dates  to sow, etc.  Experiments on the Scott Station  with garden peas have proved that  home-grown seed is. fully equal to  imported seed, and that home-grown  seed can be saved each year. Planting four different varieties of -peas,  each having a different, season for  maturing has lengthened the season  for green peas for household use by  three weeks in 1916 over planting one  variety" at week intervals for four  weeks.

Rendering Valuable Service  A Canadian Associated Press correspondent writes:  I had the privilege of travelling over one of several light railways put  down in northern France by the  Canadian railway construction corps.  When we civilians are able to take  our eyes off the boys in the front line  and those behind the guns we shall  have breathing space" to adequately  recognize how those working at the  "back of this front" have helped towards  the success of  our arms.  The railway workers of Canada in  their battalion under General Stewart  and Lieut-Col. Angus Macdonnell  are putting the motor lorry out of  business in many an area. One train  can take a hundred motor lorry loads  The railways art put down on different parts of the front, General "Slew-  art's men, of course, working just  where their enterprise is most needed.  I star-ted from a certain much-  battered town. Frankly it'was not  Pullman travelling, for the tiain  bumped and jolted just like on a line  from one Canadian place to .another.  \ou know where I mean. The farther this line went the nearer we approached the enemy. We did not go  right to the terminus; it is not healthy  to do so.  At daylight we went as far as one  of the advanced dressing stations,  where a Colonel of Medicals and his  staff awaited the grim array of  patients which would surely come  along by train after nightfall.  On the way there we passed our  terrific big guns belching projectiles  six or seven" miles into territory  which for thirty long months was  held by the Germans, and where  they will do no one knows what damage to the invader. The mere chance  of war prevents our line-being likewise wrecked by the enemy gunners.  Sooner or later, no doubt, he will  at least tear up ,. a section with a  shell, may as likely blow a train into  smithereens. If so, the line will be  put right in a few hours, and any  casualties among the Railway Construction Corps will immediately be  make good.  Material and supplies by day,  maimed: men by night, make the  freight of" Canadian railways _ in  France. Imagine doing - five miles  in the dark in tm open truck with a  shrapnel wound and with the possibility of being blown into space, on  the way! Nevertheless, I am told  our wounded prefer travelling thus  rather than by -ambulance. The  journey is covered more quickly, and  in  other ways  it is  less  harrowing.  Extensions and- additions to these  tracks are being carried out unceasingly. Men with rifles and behind  big guns force the Bosche back a  thousand yards or so. Straightway  cothes along a Canadian raihvay man,  smooths out a narrow ribbon of  ground lately pulverized by shell,  brings along a track in sections, and  in a few hours his trains are going  back and forth. Nothing spectacular  about this work, but it is helping win  the war, and carries the same risks  as endured by infantry and artillery.  French Praise for the Canadians  The Vimy Ridge was an exceedingly formidable position. The-enemy  had constructed tunnels and underground shelters there which were of  invaluable assistance ' to -him. The  Canadians, commanded by General  Home, had to display heroism and  bravery worthy of the highest admiration to overcome such an organization.

Fidelity of the Heathen  Not All the Virtue Is On One Sid-  1 It Would Appear  We are prone to think that only in  the Anglo-Saxon ideal of marriage is  there to be found an affectionate fidelity that" no vicissitudes can weaken,  no weal or woe alienate, no mortal  power subline. Those who take solemn vows to hold in "sickness and in  health," "till death us do part," and  presently seek the divorce court to  undo the tie _ might consider this  simple story of the love of two old  "heathen" which is communicated in  private advices from Cairo, describing the conditions of the people in  the Sinai Peninsula, lately released  from Turkish rule: "One day out in  the desert some of our troops saw ,a  queer bundle on the sand, it turned  out to be an old Bedawi, nearly dead,  anel all skin and bone. They did all  they could to make him happy, but  his one thought was his wife. So the  officers asked for volunteers an.l the  party started out into tlie desert to  hunt for his wife. Not far from where  they.had'found, him they found an  old, old woman, all skin, anel bone.  They brought her in and prcpircd  her a bed, etc., but she woulel do  nothing but sit by the old man's side  all the time. They were brought into one of the towns, where they both  died on the same day." Not all the  virtue is on the side of those who  dispatch missionaries to the conversion of the "benighted" of the earth.  ���������Philadelphia Ledger.

In "a pamphlet," entitled "Oversea  Operations; a Study," published in  Berlin in 1901, Baron Franz Wilhelm  Leopold Heinrich Friedrich von' Ed-  elsheim of the Second Uhlan regiment of the guard, unfolded a scheme  for the invasion of the United States  ot America. The tone of the pamphlet exhibits "Pan-Gerinanism" in its  most aggressive form.  That the scheme was not merely  the ipse dixit or Utopian dream of a  mere individual officer suffering from  proverbial Prussian swelled-hcaded-  ncss is proved by the fact that the  pamphlet was published to promote  military study in the army and navy  club of Berlin, says the London  Times.  In the preface the author states  that his pamphlet is an endeavor to  demonstrate the value of oversea op  erations in modern warfare, the prin  cipal requirement for their execution  being insured by the magnitude of  the resources which Germany has at  her disposal for such undertakings,  and to promote interest in the study  of matters of the highest importance  to the fatherland in connection with  war waged at a distance.  In the introduction it is stated that  the four years ending in 1901 demonstrated to Germany the intimate conr  nection which exists between naval  and military operations. The wars  between Japan and China, the Span-  ish-American-war, the Boer war and,  finally the China expedition, afforded instances of transport work on a  large scale acioss the seas.  According to the writer no state in  the world is able to mobilize more  quickly-or has'greater facilities for  oveisea transport and hostile landing oversea than Germany, which in  her mercantile marine���������the second  largest���������possesses a fleet of transports capable, of" rapid movement.  This is an important factor rn Germany's Weltpolitik (world policy)  which has been promoted by her successful achievements in central Europe during the last ten years.  Im the'course of his pamphlet, Baron von Edelsheim says:  Of late "years we Germans have had  cause for political-irritation with the  United States, due largely to commercial reasons. Up lOj.now differences have been for the most' part  settled through our giving way. But  a policy of surrender must have its  limits. .. *  The question for us to'consider is  what plans, must -eventually be developed" to put a stop to the ��������� over-  reachings by-the United States which  arc detrimental to our interests. It  is by armed action that_ we must ultimately enforce our will upon that  country. * .  To achieve that purpose our. prime  instrument in this case is our navy.  The German fleet would have every  prospect of-victoriously encountering  the naval forces of the United States,  as those forces are divided into two  sections separated by two oceans (Atlantic and Pacific), which are a  great distance apart. But the defeat  of her fleet would not compel the  United States to sue for immediate  peace because of the vastness of her  territory and the immensity of her  resources". Inded, even further successes at sea would not force America to yield, partly because -the commercial ports are so" well fortified  that we could not capture" them  without heavy losses, and partly because it would be; impossible for our  naval" forces to blockade them all  simultaneously.  We have to reckon on the possibility that the American fleet would  not at first risk a battle, but would  conceal itself in fortified ports and  wait -there for some favorable opportunity * to  snatch "a    partial    vic-  lt is evident, therefore, that naval  operations alone would not suffice  to bring about the result -which-we  desire. What is needed is combined  action'"by."'sea" and land. Owing; to  the vast area of the United States  if would be out of the question for  an army to invade the interior with  a view to the-conquest of the country But'there is good reason to  expect that military operations on  the Atlantic coast would prove to be  a victorious enterprise. Moreover,  the cutting off of the main arteries  through which exports from the entire country pass would create such  a depressed state of affairs that the  government would be willing to of  fer us fair conditions of peace..  If a German squadron were accompanied by a fleet of transports  it 'may be presumed that once a  landing had begun it would, on-y  take four weeks, for a German army  to begin their campaign on American soil. Within such a short period of time there is no doubt that  the United States . would be unable  to place in the field forces as large  as our invading army.  German Planes of  Variegated Hues  '���������""*-  Air Fighting Takes 'on New Interest  by Reason of Grotesquely  Patterned Machines  The fighting in the air has taken  on an entirely new interest recently,  because of the new German policy of  painting their machines in most grotesque patterns. Ihcy seem to have  gotten this idea from the old American Indian custom of painting faces  to frighten opponents, or else the  spring fancies of the German airmen  have been allowed lo run riot with  vivid color effects.  Each day the British" pilots bring  home from over the lines new reports of fantastic creations encountered amid the clouds. The gayest  feathered songsters that come north  with spring cannot 'hope to rival the  [variegated hues of the harlequin  birds that rise daily from the German airdromes.  The coming of this unique order of  things in the air was first heralded  by a squadron" of scarlet German  planes met ten or twelve days ago.  It was1 then noticed that some of the  enemy machines were striped about  the body, like yellowjackets. Nowadays nothing appears too gaudy to  meet the tastes of the enemy airmen, who seem to have been given  carte blanche with the paint brush.  There are green planes > with yellow noses; silver planes with gold  noses; khaki colored planes with  greenish gray wings; planes with red  body and wings of green on top of  blue; planes with light blue body and  red wings. Virtually all the gaudiest machines go in for red body effects, with every possible combination of colors on their wings���������some  have one green wing and one white;  some have green wings tipped with  various  colors.  One of the most striking met in the  last few days has a scarlet body,  brown tail, reddish brown wings,  with white maltese crosses against a  bright green background.  One machine looked like a pear  liying through the air. It had a  pear shaped tail and was painted a  ruddy brown, "just like * a big ripe  fruit.  One of the piebald squadrons encountered was made up of white,  red and green machines.. There  were still others palpably painted for  what has come to be known as  "cameofleg" purposes, like- guns,  wagons and tents are often painted,  to blend with the landscape, and  thus avoid detection.  This lavish use of paint, however,  has not reduced the heavy daily loss  inflicted on the Germans by the British fliers. But It must not be imagined that the Germans are not putting up a stalwart fight. Just as their  resistance has been strengthened on  land, so it has been in the air. Just  as the Germans have thrown in new  divisions of infantry and new batteries of artillery to check the allies' offensive, so they have sent aloft hundreds of new machines' to contest for  the mastery of the air, an important  phase of modern warfare. More  than once the theory has been put  forward recently that this strangest  of all wars may directly or indirectly  be d-cided under the sea or high in  the air. ���������  Rations for Beasts  Kaiser and Nicholas  United Against France  Secret Pact was Discovered by Count  Witte During 1905  A long account of a secret pact between the Kaiser and Emperor Ni:h-  olas and aimed against France is given in titc last issue of the Moscow  Russkoye Slovo to rct'ch Paiis. According to the story the existence of  the treaty was discovered by Count  Witte in 1905 while the peace negotiations between Russia and Japan  were proceeding at  Portsmouth.  Count Witte, furious at the deception of the Czar, informed the Kaiser that unless the pact was cm colled  he would refuse to counteisigu he  treaty of Portsmouth. As German  bankers were interested in a loan to  Russia this would hit them hard, and,  the story goes, rather than have complications in his economic policy the  Kaiser yielded. Neither Emperor,  however,  ever forgave Count Witte.  At the beginning of the war Count  Witte communicated the facts to B  Glinsky, editor of The Message-  Historique. He bound the editor to  keep the information until he (Count  Witte) was dead and circumstances  warranted the revelation of "Nicholas' inconceivable levity or treason���������  whichever j-ou like."

Sir Joseph Ward the minister of finance in New Zealand, in a recent  speech to Australians in London, said  that Australia and New Zealand were  determined that the islands in the Pacific which they had captured in this  war should never be restored to Germany. Sir Joseph said the fate of the  German colonies and sea power were  matters of'vital importance to Australians. They had strong feelings  concerning the restoration of the  German colonies, and did not want  German bases at Australia's . back  door.

"No  Powder for a Pig  of an  lishman"  The torpedoing of a Cunard steamer, and the terrible sufferings of  the sole survivor, Douglas V. Duff,  fourth officer, is issued by the British and Foreign Sailors Society, of  which the King and Queen, and  Queen Alexandra arc patrons, and is  one of the most harrowing of the  kind. It reveals the madness of inhumanity as developed in the submarine officer. After the steamer had  sunk, Duff goes on:  "On regaining the surface, the first  thing that caught my eye was a capsized boat with its stern blown off.  I swam to it and managed to clrmb  queerly enough to the boat's bottom,  and thereon got myself seated, and  managed to get hold of the liberated  mast on which was a sail halyard,  and "was able to lash myself to the  upturned boat. What a feeling -of  desolation crept over me as I felt anel  saw that my ship was gone.  The terrible reality wa��������� that my  shipmates, were shouting���������shouting  all around���������shouting in vain���������shouting for the last time, and [ was struck  with the very little time that elapsed  until no human voice could be heard,  lire painful silence only indicated  that so many precious lives had been  sacrificed.  A few of them, however, seeing  me, swam away lo the upturned boat,  five of whom managed to clamber by  my side, whilst two others, one with  a shattered arm and the other with a  blown-off leg, were dragged up to  lie on the snip's bottom.- Three of  the men seeing a steamer near at  hand fell back into the sea, iu the  hope that they would be able to swim  out to her. The hope was in vain.  Unfortunately these brave men perished.  Our damaged boat in a choppy sea  had now rolled so heavily -I*-at the  two injured men were washed off,  and it made me feel sick to know-  that I was powerless to save them.  By this time we were nearly frozen  to death with cold. I dropped into  a state of semi-consciousness, and  1 must have been in this state for  about three hours, when I was roused  by a harsh voice which addressed mc  in good English "What ship was that  we sunk?" "Where was she from?"  "Where was she going?" "What was  her cargo?" I was asked if I was an  Englishman, and I replied "Yes."  "Then we are going to shoot you,"  was the retort. My reply was "Then  you may shoot me, for 1 am too cold  to mind whether you do so or not."  His reply is worthy of a Hun���������"I  would not waste powder on a pig of  an Englishman. Drown then, you.  swine, drown!" and his ship disappeared from view.  Duff, after spending 18 hours  longer on his raft was rescued by a  French lugger.  The Man With the Plough  French Farmers Working Close to  Enemy Lines  "There was one figure in this landscape of war who made some officers  about me laugh," says Mr. Philip  Gibbs. "Fie was a French ploughman  who upholds the tradition of, war.  Zola saw him in 1870, and I have  seen him on the edge of other battlefields, and here he was again, driving  a pair of sturdy, horses and his  plough across the sloping field not a  furlong away froirr a village where  German shells were raising rosy  clouds of brick dust. So he gave  praise to the Lord on Easter morn  and prepared the harvest which shall  be gathered after the war."  Mr. W. Beach Thomas, another  war correspondent, writes: "I watched a single French farmer, who even  at this hour was leading out his grey  horse to plough a fallow well in front  of our heavy'guns and in sight of the  enemy. The headland of his furro.v  was a barbed-wire barrier."

A few instances which have come  under observation in the United  States where they have similar economic ,problcms to our own, will  serve for lllustiation., A writer in  the  Prairie  Farmer  says:  "I have seen bread lines of hun-  giy men in Chicago blocks long,  while on the farms in Michigan, just  across ninety miles of navigable water, fruits and vegetables sufficient to  feed all of these hungry, thousands  to repletion, weie totting in the fields  because the growers could not, individually at least, find a market  which would pay enough to coyer  the cost of gathering, to say nothing  about the cost of transportation" and  distubution. Now it seems to me  theie is something wrong, almost  criminally wrong, in a system which  permits that sort of thing to be.  "Not so veiy long ago I was in  one of the charming little cities of  northern Indiana. In the late summer I have seen literally scores of  farmers' wagons backed to the curb  on the main street, piled high with  delicious water melons and cantaloupes., I have struggled home in  mid-afternoon tugging a market basket filled to the handle with these  field fruits which had cost me maybe  a quarter of a dollar or less. Later  in the evening 1 have seen tiied farmers, after a weary clay's fruitless  waiting, driving homeward .again  with their wagons still comfortably  filled with produce, for which lhe  glutted local market offered no demand at any price.  "At the same time, less than a  hundred anel fifty miles away, - were ,  the hundreds of thousands of men,  women and children in Chicago  whose mouth's, were watering for a  taste of melon;' while the price on  those offered'for sale in the marts  was so nearly prohibitive that hardly,  anybody off the' Lake Shore Drive  could afford to buy even one.  "After I tried to figure out who  or what was responsible for this by'  a process of elimination I succeeded  to my own satisfaction.  "The farmer was not to blame directly for he received but a fraction  of what his produce was worth. The  transportation companies were not to  blame for I learned that their charges were very reasonable.- The retailer was not to blame for his profits  were  not excessive.  There was only one other source  from which could spring the conditions referred to.. This was the speculating principle governing market  conditions. The speculator bought  the farmers produce at small prrces  and placed'only enough of it upon  the retail market to supply the select-  trade. What became of the rest? I  don't know. Last winter I saw hundreds of bushels of frozen potatoes  dumped at a railway siding just outside of Montreal. Is there any connection between this incident and  present prices in that city?  Co-operative marketing would if  properly undertaken, increase the  farmers' income by at least fifty per  cent and also lower the prices in our  great centres of population by at  least as much.���������Montreal Famrly  Herald. ���������  Dairying  Importance of the-Industry Not Yet  Properly Appreciated in  Canada  During the past ten years Canada  has exported dairy products to some  30 different countries, but the quantities are very small outside tho  United States, the West Indies and  Newfoundland. The United Kingdom is still and will continue to be  Canada's chief market.  The total value of milk and^. its  products consumed annually in Canada is over $100,000,000.  Holland, the area of which is only  equal to one corner of the province  of Manitoba produces over 180,000,-  000 pounds of cheese and 140,000,000  pounds of butter annually. In parts  of Switzerland as many as 260 dairy  cattle are maintained per square  mile.  The average yield of milk per cow  is still very low in Canada and might '  easily be increased 40 or 50 per cent.  The farmers of Western Canada have  not yet learned how important it is  to keep the cows in gooel condition.

Leslie saiel coldly, not even  glancing al the patient, but looking  only at the doctor, who, having placid his charge on the sofa, now crossed   the   room   lo   her  side.  "I know nothing ol" sickness. I  s.bhor it. 1 could not be responsible  for any sick person; il is listless to  leave any responsibility in my hands.  I   would not undertake it."  "I will elo all lhat can be done  now," Thornton answered. "After  thai I am bound lo drive on lo the  patient who sent for inc. 1 was on  my way lo his house when the acci-  - dent happened, and as 1 had an urgent summons to go to him I dare  not sla-. here longer than is absolutely necessary. Rui 1 will come  back. 1 will come back a.s -,oon as I  possibly  can."  Leslie bent her head, and Guy  thought as he looked ai her thai he  hael seldom seen a more- beautiful  face, or one thai gave so strong an  impression of hai dues-.. The eyes  that met hi.s were like pieces ol" blue  ice, they were so cold, so elcvoiel ol*  any warmth ol" human feeling. The  mouth, in spite of ils exquisite curves, was set in chillingly hard lines;  the whole face seemed to him as if il  had been cut out ol" marble or ice,  rather ihan fashioned of flesh ami  blood.  "1 am glad you will come back.  . You please uiieh-rsl.tnel clearly 1 can  t,-kc no responsibility," she said, still  in the. same level, chilling tones as  before. "You can tell ine what has  to be done for the lath, but I warn  jnn I know nothing of illness, and 1  have no idea what lo do."  "In an cmenreney like this we can  only do our best," Thornton an.swcr-  eei gravely. "It is more than possible  the poor thing may not recover const iotisness at all. She is as bad as  she can be; her life is .simply hanging  by a thread. Her injuries are fatal.  It she s.hc>u!d recover coi^ciousness  give her liny sips ol" brandy and water. You have brandy here?" He  looked round the bare studio, and  back into the cold face of the woman  who had remained standing just within the doorway, neither coming near  lo the couch nor offering any help.  "Yes, 1 have brandy," she said.  "And T will do what you tcllmic to  eio if you give me exact instructions.  But 1 must remind 'you again, I  know nothing about  illness.'*  "Whether you know anything  about illness or not," Thornton ex-  clakirred, roused to a sudden gust of  anger. "1 must leave this poor soul  in your charge until 1 can get back.  The men who with mc carried her up  here have already gone back to the  wrecked train. There is no one who  can be left with you.

During the whole tinie^ Thornton  had been in the studio the mistress of  the house had not sent more than a  fleeting glance towards that still figure; but now, having curtly dismissed "Minnie to fetch some brandy,  she moved across the big studio lo  the side of her silent and uninvited  guest. And as her eyes rested on the  delicalcly-cut features, and the cloud  of fair hair thai fell over lhe cushions, a low exclamation broke from  her lips, the color, ebbed slowly from  her own face.  "You!" she saiel, under her breath.  "You���������and  here?"  A curious anel sudden gleam came  into her eyes; her lips closeel in a  hard, almost cruel line, her hands  went out with an. impetuous movement, though she were about to touch  the unconscious stranger. Bui she  drew them back again al once, "and  stood staring at the quiet face until,  as il" there were something compelling m her glance, the injureel woman's eyes opened, and looked full  into hers. -The while lips moved  with difficulty, buL no sound came  from them. Only the fear that leapt  into her eyes seemed to speak for  her, anel in answer to lhat fear a little smile hovered over Leslie's face,  "Why arc you afraid?" .she saiel.  "Why do you look at me. as if you  were afraitl of me? ll is funny you  should  have  been  brought  here!'"  The other woman's breath caught  in a little sob. She looked wistfully  into the cold fa.ee above her. she even  tried to lift her hand, but it dropped  helplessly back against her black  dress. 11 was the left hand she had  tried to lift, ami upon it there gleamed the heavy gold wedding ring  which had previously attracted  Thornton's notice. 11 also attracted  Leslie's notice, and a (lash of something, very like hatred shone in her  eyes  when   they  saw  it.  "'���������did not mean���������lo hurt you," the  woman on the couch gasped out;  "your eyes make mc; afraid; but I  did noi moan  to hurt you."  "Hurl  mc?"

Until t*������ie provincial government  took hold, the dairying industry of  Saskatchewan declined. In lr)06, the  butter output of the pr ivince li.id._Fal-  Icu to 127,000 pounds, whereas in  1897 it had been 3-16,'IPO pounds. Willi  the iinuguration of a government  dairy branch, and the institution of  the co-operative creamery, an entirely different slalc of affairs was  brought about. The dairy branch"  now operates seventeen co-operatively owned creameries, located at central points on the different railways.'  Express charges on the .cream are  paid al the creamery, so thit the farmer al a distance suffers nothing from  lhe fact that the creamery is hot at  his own door. The dairy branch,  markets the product, and distributes  the total net profits co-operatively  twice a month, Incoming cream is  classified and paid for accordingly,  and outgoing butler, is graded also  according to quality. InsUuclion in  dairying has been given to fanners  by the operation of travelling dairy  instruction cars, as well as throughout the year at the creameries and by  li'ivelling instructors. The progress  of the dairying industry-will be seen  when il is stated lhat in 1916 there  were 17 creameries, with 7,205 farmers scuiling cream, anel the production was 2,538,061 pounds of butter,  or more than If. times as much as in  1906. :  Extra Profit from  Selected Cows  Repay.  doTsn'l   cvtn  Farm Labor Secured  Thai 6,500 farm laborers were  brought into Western Canada from  the United Slates during the period  from March 1 lo May 3 is the slntc-  meiit of T.M. i\lolloy, Commissioner of the Bureau 'of-Labor; 1,100 of  these went to the province of Mani-  loba, 3,000 to Saskatchewan and 2,300  to Alberta.

One_ remarkably satisfactory result of keeping simple daily records  yields of milk and cost of feed, is the',  knowledge, gained that cows of g'ooef  dairy type do repay the .cost of ex-;  tra feed.- , -  One example may be given.     Not  far from .St.   Hyacinlhe,  Quebec,^one  hundred     cows      produced-     104,854'  pounds-of  milk    more    during    1916  than.'one  hundred did in  1915.     The  a 915  records   showed'that  ten    were  not  paying so they were beefed, and  again in 1916 eleven were-sent to the-  block, being replaced by better mill--'  crs.-      Belter    feeding    contributed  largely   to   the  above  noted    big. increase in  mild yield;   moreicorn was  fed,  more  clover and  a  little  higher'  meal ration.  The  value  of  tlie  extra  feed    was  $t>05; this produced more milk lo the  value, of $1,677.66,  so  that  the extra  clear  return 'was $1'072.<56,  and-   the-  cows were*" in much better condition; .

An arrangement  is being made between dairymen and  farmers whereby farmers can secure  calves-by paying a nominal charge  pi ice, and similar to that paid by-  butchers, thus-preserving a calf that  would be sold for $61 to one which  when two and a half veais old woulel  be worth form $100 to $175.

Aerial Progress  Remarkable Development in Aircraft  in the Past Nine Years  Tlie great progress made in the development of aircraft in the last nine  years was the subject of a recent lecture in London. In 1908 the Wright  brothers flew at a rate of 35 miles an  hour, while at the end of last year  a speed of 142 miles an hour was attained by a Sopwith monoplane. The  farthest distance flown bv ihe  Wrights in 1908 was 7 1-2 miles; the  other day a Frenchman came near  flying from Verdun to Russia (9S4  miles). The Wrights in 1908 reached  an altitude of 500 feet; both a  Frenchman anel an Englishman had  recently ascended to oyer 25,000 feel.  The rate, of ascent in 1909 by a  Frenchman was 300 feet in I -j minutes  an aviator in England recently ascended 10,000 . feet in 15 minutes, the  first 5,000.in five minutes, which was  equal to the ascent of the fastest lift.
