HAS CONDEMNED THE  '..-- -PROHIBITION ACT : '  Trades and Labor Councils of the  Coast   Cities    Pass   Strong  Resolutions���������Reasons Why  Workingmen Should  Vote Against Bill.  Organized labor has declared  its position with reference to  the B. C. Prohibition Act with  no uncertain sound, the result  of close investigation and keen  discussion of the bill having resulted in ���������the straight declaration by the coast labor bodies  that the -Act should be condemned and that the working-  men of British Columbia should  do all in their'power to-"defeat  the'measure at the polls.  The VancjpuvercvTrades and  Labor Council, the" 'most representative labor organization in  in British Columbia, at its meeting on July 20th, passed a strong  resolution against the Act, the  closing paragraph reading as  follows:  ������������������ Resolved that the Trades  and Labor Council in Vancouver, B, C*,-in harmony with  representative bodies of organized labor elsewhere places itself  on record as opposed to - the  British Columbia Prohibition  Act and to the principles involved therein."  In adopting the above resolution the Vancouver Trades  Council was hut following the  steps of the New Westminster  Trades and Labor - Council,  whioh on June 14th passed the  following resolution:  "Resolved that this Council  go on record as opposed to prohibition as contained in the  proposed Bill, from an econo-  nomic and social standpoint  and report this decision to the  various unions with the request  that they help to_defeat the bill."  The resolutions above noted  are in line with the action of  the Victoria Trades and Labor  Coiineil and the Prince Rupert  Labor Council.  WORKINGMEN HAVE A  KICK  COMING,  The discussion in connection  with the passage of these resolutions showed plainly that  workingmen believe they have  a just "kick" In connection with  the Prohibition Act. - It was  stated that the measure is class  legislation of the rankest type  inasmuch as it allows the man  of means to secure all the liquor  he desires by importing it from  outside points, but at the same  time places a handicap on the  workingman who can only afford to buy hjs, beer by the glass.  This argument is directly along  the line of the remarks by Mr.  Parker Williams, member for  Newcastle, on discussion of the  Bill in tlie House, when he  openly declared the Act to be  class legislation and stated that  while he "would vote for Prohibition that would prohibit he  would never have anything to  do with such lop-sided, jug-  handled imitation as the present  Bill."  The Act is also objectionable  to trades unions inasmuch as  many of its clauses were declared to be un-British and unfair-   It was pointed out thevt  clause 29 provided that any  person could tell a constable  that ������he suspected a ,man had  liquor illegally in his possession.  On this information and without disclosing the name of the  informer, the constable couln  enter a man's home, break into  all the rooms, closets, etc., with  out a warrant, riuch provisions  were severely criticized by members of the labor councils as absolutely opposed to the British  ida that "A man's house is his  castle."  .      - *      ' '  In taking the action they did,"  the council were also moved by  the feeling that they should  support the large body of the  workingmen who are today  either directly or indirectly engaged in connection with the  operation of licensed premises.  It is stated that -3700 men are  now thus employed and. that  6000 persons i?re dependent  upon them for a living. This  does not include over vl200 era-,  ployees of licensed premises  who are now at the front., As  the Prohibition Act would mean  that these men would be thrown  out ofl work, the councils considered 1 that legislation leading  to such action especially at this  time should be vigorously ^opposed."        - , -i    '.. '  Many delegates who tool-  part in the council discussions  said that they were Prohibi-  bitionists. tThey stated, however that they were opposed to  the Act because it was not a  Prohibition Act in - any,, real  sense of the term, provision being made in it for the purchase  of liquor by importation or  otherwise just as freely as is  now.* the case. * They plainly-  stated that they did not consider a vote against the Pfohi^  bition Act a vote againstvthe  principle of Prohibition, as,to  their minds the passage of such  an "act as--was proposed would  not in any^way lessen the pur-  chase^or consumption of -liquor.  As a'"matter* ofjfact, although it,  might tend'to'decrease the coh-  sumption'of health-giving beer,  (tho workingmen's usual bev7  erage), it would actually increase the consumption of  whisky and spirits, a condition  which was not for the best interests of the workingmen or  the province.

It is not generally known that  in addition to being taught  everything that an infantryman is instructed in, the sapper  of the Canadian Engineers  learns many things useful in  civil'life. He is therefore continually being prepared for the  return to civil duties at the end  of the war,  He is taught bridge building,  building construction, road  building, use of explosives, geometry, construction of piers,  derricks, incinerators, drains,  water "systems, the use of the  blocks and tackles, knots, hisli-  ing and splicing. Careful thinking men who are going to enlist  should remember this. More  men are *w anted, and wanted  quickly, for the engineers. Sixty  men are Avanted immediately.  Men desirous of enlisting iu  the Engineers should apply at  the nearest army doctor or recruiting station or communicate  diroctjwith the officer commanding at headquarters, North Vancouver, B. C. On receipt of attestation ptipers and medical  history sheets, transportation  will be forwarded for journey  to Vancouver.  The officers and non-commissioned ^officers' school of military engineering commenced  on Monday, 31st July. Anyone  can join this school and successful candidates will obtain  sergeant's certificates.before going overseas. A considerable  number of men have received  commissions after obtaining  this certificate.  * *, S*jgTl  There will be no services in  the Hedley Euglisii church until September.  E. J.

That is what makeo eihind as a result of past mismanage-  people drag along, always tired, never I merit that nothing that can now be  real hungry, often unable to digest j done ' will successfully allay.

More  weak,    anaemic  people    have  been made strong, energetic and cheerful by taking Dr.  Williams Pink  Pills  than   by   any   other   means.       These  pill.,   actually   make   new.   rich   blood  which reaches every part of the body,  strcn-uhens the nerve..-and brings new  health and strength.   Tlie following is  proof  of   I.)i'.   Williams   T'ink   Pills  to  restore health. Mr.  Geo. Turner, New  Haven, N. S., says:���������"'No doubt due-to  constant hard  work I  got  in a badly  run down condition. It took very little  exertion  to  tire me.  and  my appetite  was far from  being good.    Often [ had  headaches, and  when going up stairs,  or after any slight exertion  my heart  would  palpitate violently, and I grew  eon. idcrably   alarmed   about   my  condition.   1 decided to take Dr. Williams  Pink Pills and after using a few boxes  I felt much better.    I continued using  the  pills for some  weeks longer,  and  they    completely    cured  me.      I can  warmly' recommend   this  medicine  to  men who" are weak or run down:"  You can get tTiese pills through any  medicine dealer or by mail, post, paid,  at 00 cent.*- a box or six boxes for  -52.50 from The Dr. Williams Medicine  Co..   l-'.rockvillc. Out  Forestry Farms  Changing  the Treeless   Prairie   Into   a  Park-Like   Country  "...���������islffileJioiv-in iTOiiires more Forestry Farms. Then there would be at  least two lectures continuously on the  road to hold meetings, giving lectures  on forestry, shelter-belts, el'e. The  gospel of tree-planting .mould be  l-iought to farmers. These lectures  could take the names and locations  of farmers who are anxious and ready  to plant trees, send iu the lists to the  head office in the xn-ovince, and inspectors should l>e sent' out to examine each farm, so as to advise  farmers where to plant, and how to  prepare the ground for the following  year's planting. It is all right to expend inoney on tlvo general Conserve-'  tion Commission to enthuse citizens  the Dominion over on what our natural resources are and how they  should be conserved, but- the practical  working end of the problem should  not be neglected. Give Saskatchewan  forestry farms and practical men to  meet progressive farmers, and in u  lew years' the treeiess, wind-swept  prr.*j������'ies would be changed to a parklike country, with trees on every  "arm."���������Saskatchewan Farmer.  Foe Ships in American Harbors  There are eighty-eight German and  twelve Austrian ships in American  ports with a total net tonnage of ."03,-  470, lying idle on account of the war.  The merchant ships may "leave when  they like, but warships must remain  till the termination of the war. The  reason why none of the merchantmen leave port is because the Allies  maintain an effective patrol outside  the three mile  limit.  Capital of Portugal  Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, has  a population of about half a million.  Its harbor is one of the finest in the  world, and large enough to hold all  the navies of Europe. The greatest  earthquake on record occurred at Lisbon when,,in 1755, in less than ten  minutes, the greater part of tho city  was made a heap of ruins, and from  30,000 to 40,000 persons killed.  antipathy  south.  The-new policy will deepen the  feeling, inasmuch as the demands of  Berlin, are so loudly heard in government circles, and Berlin "is so much  till: centre of news that is circulated  broadcast throughout the word, that  supplies -for,, that city will continue  to be imported at the expense of the  needs ci the country.  Many-of  the   large    cities    in    the  south an.''  .southeast have passed bylaws   prohibiting  the  export  of foodstuff-.-   to   Berlin.      Small   towns   followed   their   example,���������in   fact,   some  towns  in   Prussia,  seeing how  cattle,  flc!-r,  sugar,  oil,   lard,'-'and*;oilier essentials o   existence, were being sent  away,   on   the    plea' of  meeting    the  needs of the soldiers at the front, to  Berlin to retail.-rind; wholesale houses,  rose   up .and  refused   to   export  anything until  provision   was.made    for  local   necessities:      There   have   been  some   bitter    conflicts..' between    the  military and civil .powers'; as a result.  Hanover, iii particular, is in a verv  critical-mood.'  The stock of the fanner.--   is  in   a Shocking  state owing  to  the  impoverishment in    tlie    winter.  and has resulted in many being killed  thai,   otherwise. Would   have   fetched  good   prices.      One    authority    says:  "'We have the money to meet"the rise  in,prices, but not-the goods.    We eat  our potatoes'with'a sauce like  water,  and since private slaughtering  is forbidden,  we.:, in  the country sec  meat  ���������yul bacon pass away from us, and arc  left  to speculate  as to   what will become of us when the new organization  begins to equalize supplies. Hanover,  unprepared     for such  a  contingency,  has been  looked -upon  as one  of the  emporiums of the empire, and now we  are on the verge of u collapse from the  luck of food for cattle and edibles for  the poor.   The poor will die like bees  in  a cyclone.    It  is aii  very  well  to  fell us that the harvest, will be great.

Nothing  but, education,   nothing but  the  first step  to  something belter.  in this Matter  of Health  one   is either   with   the   winners  or with the losers.  It's largely a question of right  eating���������right food. For sound  health one must cut out rich,  indigestible foods and choose  those that are known to contain  the elements that build sturdy  bodies and keen brains.  Meat  Production  In the United States between 10&0  and 191'.! the population increased 24  per cent., while" cattle decreased 30  per cent: In Russia. Argentina and  Brazil there were also decreases. Tn  ���������France, Germany and the United  Kingdom, and Austria-Hungary there  were slight increases, but only in  France at the same ratio as the population. In Australia alone was there  relatively, a greater growth in the  number of cattle than of people. In  Canada the population dui-inc- the  period mentioned increased 35 per  cent:, but in cattle only 20 per cent.  Those facts are surely pregnant with  significance of the opportunity that  lies before Canada in the breeding of  cattle. The same state of things exists, only in a more-- emphatic " way.  as regards sheep, and even as regards swine the depletion last year  was of such extent as to produce^a  certain measure of scarcity this year.  And With It Went All Those Symptoms Which Mark the Earlier Stages  of Kidney Trouble.  Grand Clairiere, Man., (Special.)���������  "All persons who suffer from rhcumat-  iMii should use Dodd's Kidney Pills."  This is the statement ioluntcered by  Mr. P. A. Bonnot, a well-known resident of this place." Asked to give the  reason's why Mr. Bonnot said:    ���������  "1 suffered for three years from  rheumatism. I consulted a doctor  without getting any results. Four  boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills fixed me  up."  That rheumatism is caused by sick-  kidneys failing fo strain the uric acid  out of the blood was again shown in  Mr. Bonnot's case. His earlier symptoms were.: heart fluttering.--, broken  and unrcfreshing sleep, fitful appetite, a tired nervous feeling, a heaviness after meals, neuralgia and backache.  When he cured his kidneys with  Dodd's. Kidney Pills the rheumatism  and all the other symptoms of kidney trouble disappeared.  Agriculture   and  the   War  One effect of the war has been to  bring home to peoples' minds tho real  importance of agriculture as an industry. ,  The former is benefited by the situation, in that the prices of agricultural products has been greatly increased, but he is at a goat disadvantage owing to the scarcity of labor iu  many places and the consecpicnt rise  in wages and in the cost of farmer's  materials.  These effects have been more  marked in the second year of the war  than in the first. Tn all probability  the viu-ious tendencies mentioned will  continue to be more pronounced as  long as the war lasts.  There lias been in recent years in  Canada, a steady increase in the  acreage yield per acre of most crops,  but a considerable improvement is  yet possible. ��������� As a rule intensive  fanning is more profitable than extensive. Less labor is required. less  capital is employed and the returns  are surer. A decrease in the number  of acres cultivated need not always  mean less production. Now, if ever,  i:- the time to economize in labor on  il.e farm when men are needed so  laillv  abroad.

Battalion  r>mmanders   work   out   schemes    of  JratPiry which would have won them  tine in smaller wars.   Fifty men or a  yorrsantl may  be engaged in a raid,  lb may be on a front of fifty yards or  hthousand.    Its object is to take as  any  prisoners  and  kill  and  wound  6-5 many of the enemy as possible in a  fc-w minutes; and then to get back to  lieir own trench. -The assaulters try  hold on to the piece of trench they  iave taken, the guns- are turned on  }"iem, the bombers close up on either  l.de,   and   machine   guns   and   rifles  [re  prepared  to  sweep    the  zone  of  "tirement. , -   -  ���������An uncanny curiosity gives the sol-  licrs incentive for the raids,.

They cover the  ���������rush and they cover the return of the  [raidois with their prisoners.  But the guns are not all: there are  I'nll kinds of organized trickery in or-  jder to enable a body of soldiers to get  linlo the enemy's trenches for a few  [minutes of activity, when the occu-  l/pants throw themselves on their in-  rvaders at such close quarters that it  lis a question if even a revolver is now  ]a practical weapon.

Tn   point  of endurance he consideied it not  improbable  that  they  would   march   an  ' average new army beftalion to a stand-  t'-till.

Escaped From Germany  Clear   Grit     Won      Liberty  -For   This  French   Officer  French journals print a'remarkable  account, of a French officer who succeeded in escaping, after being severely wounded," from captivity in Germany. The officer, who was a captain  in an African regiment, went through  the battle ofCharleroi in August, 1914,  and a few days later, during the .retreat, had orders to capture a German  battery. During the charge ho' was  wounded in the chest with a bullet.  His man left him for dead after removing his papers, but he was,picked  up by the German Red Cross.-  A week later he was suffering from  pleurisy. Even after two months his  wound was still "discharging, and he  was,so weak that he could not stand.  Day after day, with'great difficulty,  he regained strength by gradually increasing exercise.in Jus room. He let  his beard grow and "stopped washing,  so as'to be able to pass as a tramp.  A village girl, a nurse, gradually  brought him civilian .clothes, gave him  money, and procured'him a key of a  secret door.  He escaped "one dark night and,  passing as n. Belgian refugee, got  rough farm work, and in return bought  food and board. - The wound, however, re-opened, 'and at all costs he  had to get attention, so 'he forged' a  paps and got into the town. ' There  he found an old French doctor who  treated him. Ho w*as employed in the  town in all sorts of odd jo'bs, as stableman, clerk,, grocer's assista/.c. _tc.  During this period all men .between  eighteen and fifty had to go before  the Military Governor, but he was  not suspected.  In March, 1915, nearly cured the'  officer determined to get back to  France. For this a passport, was  necessary, but obviously impossible  to get. He had. however, made the  acquaintance ,of an old smuggler,  whom heTJersuadfid-to^et him a passport. "The smuggler got him a passport for a town-near the Belgian frontier.

Tn Belgium he' got papers "as  a Belgian citizen and permission fo  travel near frontier towns. He finally  managed to reach Holland. To get a  passport to England was an easy matter, but once there he was arrested as  n German spy, because of his curious  clothing. He was released almost at  once, and on his return to Paris was  able to give valuable information to  the military authorities. Having already been decorated with the Lesion  of Honor he was awarded the Croix  de  Guerre.

The merchant shook hi.s head, and  when informed of tire truth he burst  into loud lamentations. He had shamelessly overcharged the Prince, and  nothing could convince him that he  could not suffer an ignominious dcatji.  The correspondent promised, if the  merchant distributed largesse to the  poor in the Prince's name he himself  would personally intercede with the  Prince .on the merchant's behalf. The  merchant thankfully agreed.  Overrated German Efficiency  German efficiency will be less made  oi in the future. Its limitations are  as obvious as those of an analytical  conclusion.

AsquitH Points  Way to Victory  Increasingly   Close   Co-operation   and  Vast Resources of Allies Bound  to Triumph  In observance of the thiitieth anniversary of his election to the House  of Commons from East Fife, Premier  Asquith, visited his constituency for  the first time since the outbreak of  the war, addressing a great meeting  of his supporters and many who in  .past years, had been his opponents.  The Premier made a touching reference to the death of Field Marshal  Earl Kitchener as "leaving a place iu  our constitutional life tha'f none else  can fill,'and a memory that will live  as long as *tho British* Empire." Lord  Kitchener had .bequeathed to the country an array of armies,, said lhe  Premier, and it was for the country  to make the best use of these.  In a survey of the situation, Premier Asquith declared that the Russian advance was one of the most  brilliant feats of the war.  The Italians, Mr. Asquith said, were  making resistance to Hie Austrian onslaught which every day was becoming more effective. As for the French,  nothing coxrld exceed the valor with  which they were maintaining the defence-of Verdun. Co-operation among  the General Staffs of the allies was  ,beconiing more, intimate and complete  every month. British assistance had  been offered to Gen. Joffre, and the  steps which would be taken were  those dictated by sound strategy.  '"This war is not merely a struggle  of armies,''' the, Premier continued.  "Jt is a sliuggle of material and economic .vi -sources, and these will prove  in the Ion"* run to be the'deciding  factors."  AEtov sneaking oi the effectiveness  of the navy's blockade Mr. Asquith  said:  "Owing to the rashness of,the enemy we were allowed to csee another  and more stirring, dramatic aspect of  the navy's qualities. The naval ac-,  tion of May 31 was worthy of the best  and most treasured traditions of the  British navy. r The 'Germans were  driven back into their ports without  so much as making an effoit lo grapple with the main body of our Grand  Fleet, and had the temerity to claim  what really was a rout as a complete  victory. A couple moio such victories  and there will be nothing left of the  German navy worth speaking about.  The truth is slowly leaking out. and  its full extent is not yet realized -or  appreciated". Our command' of the  seas, so far fioni being impaired, has  been more firmlv and unshakably established."  In reference to Ireland, Mr. Asquith  said the recent rioting, leading to the  loss of many innocent lives, had ereat-  e"d a'situation which seemed to a majority of responsible Irishmen of all  parties to call for a settlement. The  history of'the relations between Great  Britain and Ireland exhibited a tragic  series of missed or misused opportunities.  "Don't lot us add another fo their  number." said the  Premier.  What he desiied, he explained, was  a provisional settlement, for when the  war came to an end the country would  have to take stock of its internal relations, the fabiic of the Empire would  have to be refashioned, and lelations  between Great Britain and Ireland  and the Dominions would of necessity  be brought into close and connected  review.

A welt  known member of Lady Paget's party  said: "We have travelled back to England via Roumania, Russia, Sweden  and Noiway. On October 22 the Bulgarians entered Usknb. Their advance  was so lapid that there was no possibility of getting the patients safely out of the hospital. Lady Paget  pluekily decided to stay behind to  look after them. The line of battle  went right through the hospital buildings, but the Bulgarians respected the  Red Cross flag.  "There were S00 patients, about half  of them being Serbs,- and the other  half Bulgars., The Bulgarians, ] believe,   did   what  they  could  to   help.  They* told us they were anxious to  stand well iu English eyes. The refugee population, kept alive from .the  relief fund stores, numbered' many  thousands. Lady Paget organized  daily relief for about*4,000 people.   ������  "King Ferdinand, and both the  young princes came to TJskub before  we were permitted to leave. None of  them, however, came to the hospital.  Alter leaving Usknb we were detained  in Sofia for a month. Lady Paget was  the guest of the Queen of Belgium.

And this man is Chevalier Marconi,  who invented and perfected the wonderful "w-reless" telegiaphy. To him  belongs the credit of saving life all  over the world, since to his great invention thousands of people owe their  lescuc from  maritime disaster.  The history of wireless telegraphy  is still short. As recently as 1S99 messages were first sent from England to  France, while in 1002 the "waves" he  had mastered, cariied .-reelings between Canada and .England.  The first case on .record of "wifeless" being employed by a ship in dis-  tros occurred on March 3, 1899. On  this date the R. F. Matthews ran  into the East Goodwin lightship during a heavy fog. The weather conditions would, in the old days, have  rendered the work of rescue very  difficult, if not impossible. But the.  R. F. Matthews was equipped with  what was then a. novelty���������Marconi's  system of wireless telegraphy. Messages were sent ashore and speedily  brought lifeboats lo the rescue.  During the next ton years, instances  are recorded of wireless aiding ships  iu difficulties, but, not until .1909 was  public interest really roused in this  matter.  On January 2.3, 1909. just ten years  after the case of the R. F. Matthews,  the Florida rammed and sank the  great White Star liner the Republic,  off the Nantucket Lightship, some  thirty miles from the American coast.  The story of the loss of the Republic is the story" of the pluck of Jack  Finns, the wireless operator. Binns  at once began to send out urgent calls  for help "C. Q. D." Through the  ooui-dloss air the magic letters sped,  beinc- recorded by every wireless receiver f,r hundreds of miles. And  in finswei ships changed their courses  and hurneo to the scene of the disaster,  ' Sixty miles away  was the    Baltic,  name separated from the sinking liner, with  its two thousand human, souls, by a  de-ise fog. And from half past six at  night the Baltic scoured the surface  of the o'/iiii on its errand of mercy.  All through the long hours Binns sat  at his instrument sending out messages and directions to the shixi coming to the aid of the Republic.  And then, at night, after a day of  zigzagging two hundred miles on tho  ocean, the Republic sent the welcome  woid to the Baltic that they were  close together. The lookouts on the  ships could see nothing, but the wire-  ie>b operators knew. And so the pas  On board wore 2.201 passengers and  crew, while the v< ssel itself had cost  well over one million pounds to build.  Yet in a moment she became a helpless wreck.  The wireless operator sent his call  for help broadcast info the air, and  it was answered by the Carpathia,  which, vessel steamed as quickly as  | possible to the rescue. But before she  had reached the scone of the disaster  the Titanic had sunk. Out of the 2.000  odd human beincs 712 were saved  from the lifeboats of the ill-fated vessel. And it is quite accurate to say  that, but for the wireless call, most,  if not all of these must have perished  from exposure.  But it is not possible to mention  even all the most lemaikablc rescues  effected by wiroles.-. 'Iheic was the  Yulturno. which caught fire 1,000  miles w-st of the   11 is.li coast, and in  The London Daily Mail's Berna  coriespondent, writing on internal  conditions in Germany says:  "The morale of the civilian population is considerably shaken by privations and the morale of the army-lo  some extent is .-iffected by- the news  fiom home, as well, no doubt, as by  the heavy losses at the front.

Shipowners at once  began to see. the necessity of having  their vessels fitted with it. Marconi  had fully proved his right to the honor  of saving life.  The following year, after the saving  of the Republic, wireless telegraphy  was put to still another use. In the  autumn of that year an American inventor named Welhnan sot out in his  dirigible balloon, patriotically called i saved.  America, to cross the Atlantic. In  theory the idea was good: in practice  it went wrong. Presently Wellmanand  his band of devoted helpers found  themselves drifting aimlessly about  over the wide Atlantic, with apparently little hope of rescue. But the wireless operator with the balloon succeeded in calling aid to the stricken  airship.  This was one of the first cases where  two of the marvels of the age���������wireless telegraphy and-airships���������came into contact. Since then wireless telegraphy has been adapted to all sorts  and sizes of nir craft.  While the Republic was the instance  which first drew attention to the  powers of wireless, the story of the  Titanic excels it in drama. On its  maiden voyage across the Atlantic  this gigantic liner struck an iceberg  in mid ocean on the night of April  14, 1912.  Then again, when the Empress of  Ireland was struck by the Storstad n  wireless .call ended in the saving of  452 lives. .  But the instances arc endless. And  tin* modern usages of war have multiplied them. Of'this.period nothing as  yet can be written; we must wait" till  the coming days of peace.  But brief mention may be made of  the  Lusitania,   when   76-i  lives    were  A word here as to the call used���������  S. O. S.���������is not out of place. "C. Q.  D." the original call for danger was  adapted from the old "all stations,"  or general, call of the 'telegraphy.  But at the first International Wireless  Congress it was suggested and approved that a better call was "S. O.  S.," which by* its arrangement of dots  and dashes is different from any other  call. *      ��������� .  "S. O. S-" has no special meaning.  It is not intended to express "Save  our Souls!" or anything else equally  dramatic. This call is an international one, and has the same meaning in all languages..  As the number of vessels carrying  wireless equipment increases, so the  peril of the sea grows less. Marconi  has robbed the ocean of much of its  terror; Old Neptune is slowly being  muzzled.���������From Answers, London.

Perhaps the reason is that- one feels better ;  'dressed and more becomingly dressed with something  soft and fluffy about the neck.    This, most likely, is  the reason why the vogue.of summer furs was instigated.    And then, for   another   reason,   the   frisky  breezes at the shore often make it necessary to wear  something about the throat.    There are many women  who are following the vogue of wearing summer furs,;  but they are in the mindrity.    The other percentage,������������������-'���������;  ^ 'however, demanded a substitute and have been given  a choice of wonderful airy neckpieces that will prove  just as kind to one's features as the fur piece.  In years gone by one was offered not more than  two models of maline ruffs from which to make a  choice.   This season the variety is strong.   .  The cape idea is carried out effectively in the  ruff of gray maline. . The ends are finished with gray  ribbon and a jeweled ornament.  In the flesh-colored ruff a stiffer quality of  maline is used. The effect is quite Elizabethan.  Loops of black ribbon are cleverly introduced at intervals around the collarette and tied into a loopy bow  at the side. Such a ruff snaps together beneath the  ear and must be worn fastened in order to get the proper  effect.  A graceful finish for the summer frock is the raxT  madn of tulle in all the rainbow colors. A rich'touch  is given to the piece in the form of purple morning-  glories and purple ribbon loops and ends.  Another close-fitting ruff is shown in the model  of brown tulle, A flat bow of the material at the back  lends a coquettish note, while a bow of brown satin  ribbon finishes the line pf closing at the front.  The ruff of ribbon or silk is just as fashionable  ias those of the flimsy materials; in fact, it is newer  this season. In the blue ruff picoted silk has been  cut and arranged to form jester points.  Sines women insist upon finishing the throat with  fcOiSethiiig geft and fluffy, it might as well be something C0ol as well as stylish for the summer days.  tWkieh one ef this group do yoii ptef������rl  ���������JV  ���������*i>.  _*���������  ,-f  f  t   \ ���������      -9  .-ji*- *- I  *   ^*__.  .....:������������������-*-^^.  .���������������-.-*-.._*_  fi  _       _    ������������������    **>��������� ��������� ���������������       i ��������� *i     s >n    , ...I a   ** ���������    ������������������ ���������       ^THsf ii- 'jiwiccr -j-*1-**-. v_*  "       "  . v-.

I was not particularly interested in  the expedition of Cyrus, and it was not  until many years after that I learned  ���������^that this same Xenophon.    when    he  jtook off his  armor,    was  a  peaceful  ffai-mer,  and    that he   wrote    a book  rcalled "Economics," in, which he set  |forth   his   views   of  agriculture   in*-a  '^.language    and, with    an' intelligence  '(that showed that he was as much at  -���������'home with the plow as with the"swor'd.v  t!

Among other things he  says:  "I will  V now explain how a man may run the  j, least risk of being deceived when con-  f jecturimr the future height-of a hoise.  ������������������The young horse which, when foaled,  \ has  the  shank   bone  longest*,  invairi-  ,'ably turns out the tallest, for'as'time  J, advances the shank bones of all quad-  f rupeds^increase, but little; but that the  rest of the body may be svmmetrical  it increases  with  them." This seems  i also an answer to the often asked ques-  \ tion, are the legs  of a  newly foaled  colt as long as they will ever be?  -But Xenophon's knowledge "of agri-  i) culture was by no means confined to  horses. Green manures  are discussed  [?' in our day  as if they were a recent  discovery', ^and   yet  more   than "2,000  years   ago "this   wise    Greek    wrote:  "When the c'orn 'is'up'and it is high  in the blade, if you then turn it into  "the ground with a plow it will greatlv  enrich the land and give it as much  strength as a rich dunging would do."  He   we-11   understood   the   importance  of  thoroughs  or    drtches  in    seeded  fields for draining the wet places, as  well   as  tho   desirability   of   "reaping  with the wind ".He talks like a seasoned   modprn 'farmer of  the  import-  once of cutting weeds in'the hot part  of summer, as well as" of frequent cultivation in  a  dry    time.      In short,  I}" there seem to be few of what are considered- the   essentials   in   twentieth-  century agricultural practice that were  hot * perfectly   familiar  to  Xenophon,  who,  upon  every _   occasion    extolled  agriculture,  deeming those most fortunate  who  were engaged in  it.    He  regarded  husbandry  as  "mother and  nurse -of all''other sciences," a sentiment that L have heard expressed of-  ', < ten.  .       But 'agriculture   was   not   the sole  topic of this wise Greek.      He wrote  ���������   entertainingly   on   the   training  of   a  wife, in which  he indicated  a course  r   that in his judgment would make the  perfect helpmeet.  Here  is  one of his  observations:  "It is  more convenient  for a woman to be at home and mind  her own domestic 'affairs   than to gad  abroad." That sounds like a  bit out  . of Puritan  New England; but Xenophon proceeds in the next instance to  give  his opinion  of  the  cotbetty    in  this language-.-"It is as shameful for  a man to be -it home idling when his  business requires him to be abroad."  We get a glimpse, too, of another side  of the Greek .woman,    which    shows  that human nature is the same in all  ages.    The model  wife it  seems was  so desirous  of  appearing fair in the  . ejres of her husband that on one occasion   she' was  moved  to  paint her  face with a certain cosmetic, attempt-  -: ing to make it fairer than it was; and  with another mixture had endeavored  to increase the  natural bloom Lof her  cheeks;  and   also  had  put  on  higher  shoes than ordinary to make her look-  taller than she  naturally  was." How  like  this   ancient   Greek     dame   are  hundreds of women  in, French heels  that Harriet and I see every time we  visit our nearest city, and how kindly,  yet. effective,   was  the husbandly rebuke in wbich**the ��������� wife was  assured  that her "own  person in  its natural  perfections   is   preferable   to   all   the  paint  and  ointment  you   can  use to  set it off."  ('   Thus it will be seen that in spite of  l.centuries of development we are not  so very far    ahead    of the    ancients  after all.   One of my friends who has  travelled    extensively  and    kept his  eyes open, saw. in the ruins of exca-,  vated Pompeii, the Italian city that'Judge.  talk about the possibility of a war  out of which this country could not  keep or be kept has revealed the existence here of people who have or  profess conscientious scruples in doing  their part with othei citizens in such  a contingency and sharing the common risks. There is interest for us,  therefore, in seeing how .another country with the same problem has handled it.  The English have 'shrewdly decided  that scruples against fighting, to be  conscientious and deserving of recognition���������to be sincere, that is, and not  a mere cloak for cowardice or treason  ���������must have been entertained and  expressed for some time before the  war began. The Quakers, Plymouth  Brethren, and others who,.can meet  that'test are excused from becoming  out-and-out soldiers, serving in the  trenches and shooting or shooting at  those whom they ./'call their fellow-  men. But they are not let "off. altogether. rThey- are conscripted like  other people, 'yet only as non-combatants, and they have to use the  spade' instead of the rifle.  Curiously enough, this seems, to  satisfy their delicate conscience-, anrij  apparently they fail to realize that  the work they do is just as, much a  part of war as that of anybody else  who is engaged in it, and that it has  a very direct -bearing on the- deaths  of the Germans or others who try to  take the trenches they dig. ' Indeed,  it is reported they are proud of the  fact that though tliey do 'no killing  themselves, not infrequently their  work takes them under fire, and that  their, lives are by no means safe.  It is to be* hoped that our own conscientious' objectors .will be equally  illegorical arid inconsistent when their  time of trial comes, if ever it does.  At any rate, the British solution of  the problem is well worth keeping'in  mind, for-even if it should tend to increase the membership of sects of the  religio-pacifist,sort no great harm will  be done: Modern- war needs the service of as many civilians or non-combatants as of mien taking part" in the  actual fighting, and those thus engaged are as honorably employed as are  those onc**the firing "line,-*.though, of  course, they haven't the same opportunities of acquiring glory and do not  share the stem joys of battle.  .

A  typical letter was received in "this, city  from' a y"ouhg*~ Welshman serving in  the -.trenches -in Flanders, part of  which ran as follows:  "Twenty-five of my mates, alone  with myself, have made up a little  emigration club among" ourselves.  Those of us who get through this  mess will club our valuables together  and their off .to Canada, where we  will farm. Ten of us were in commercial houses, five worked on farms in  England and Wales, and the other ten  did various factory jobs.

Other recipients of correspondence  from the fighting lines of the belligerents report similar sentiments, and  it looks as if Europe will not only  not have to contend with a great influx of men on their labor markets,  but that governments will actually  have to offer threats or inducements  to retain their best citizens.��������� Wall  Street Journal.  Calculating Cows  Statistics     Prove   That  Cow     Testing  Pays    for ; the,; Trouble  Many Times Over  In virtually any dairy district, probably among the heids supplying one  factory, it is possible to find contrasts  running something like this: one herd  of 14 cows gives on the average 7,732  lb. mill* and 213 lb. fat, while a neighbor's herd of 14 cows averages onlv  4.037 lb. milk and 155 lb. fat."Indeed,  in looking over the records in eleven  districts, the average difference he-  tween the high herd averages and the  low ones amounted to 4,1539 lb. milk  and 140 ib, fat per cow. This is certainly an extraordinary difference,  and indicates that it will pay to cal  culate what cows can do.  Take it another way: tn 1014, sixty  patrons of two creameries'began this  cow calculation, cow testing. It was  round in I'M5 that their herds had  made a gain over their I!M3 record of  71 pounds of fat per cow, a gain of  eight per cent. But on the other  hand the 1913 patrons of the same two  creameries who did not go in for cold  calculations fell off 87 pounds of fat  per cow. seventeen  per cent.  If the men not cow testing had  made gains with their cows in the  two years as those made who were  testing, it would have meant an increase in the output of 58,362 pounds  of butter!

Yet nothing can be more necessary  in a war which now engages the whole  nation than that we should have some  trustworthy knowledge of the temper  and resources of tho enemy.  At the outset, it is necessary to .realize that Germany is besieged. The  essentials of a siege are a limited urea  and resources, gravely disproportionate to those of the. besieging army.  This, beyond question, is tlie state  of Germany. All the wild dreams of  salvation from the east have now been  proved bankrupt. The corridor lo  Turkey*is now seen to he a channel  to draw off her resources. Germany  has been forced to send across it  stores of ammunition, skilled workmen, a sprinkling of-soldiers, and  some competent leaders. Her gain by  it is the distraction of the Allied command and tho disrjersion of our foices.  But the siege is not raised. Jn effect,  it is shortened by'the amount of supplies of munitions and men sent  -hrcr-p-li  to Turkey.  In  Germany at th'a moment there  i<-   -ri   undoubted   shortage   of.,food.  The "evidence  of  this  is  beyond  dis-  putf.    Hoarding  and   high ' organization  ultimately  amounting  to  rationing,  can  be seen  in   any siege,* Kut  being the most recent instance." 'But,  resides   the  shortage   of   food,' the*-3  is  a diminution in commodities rl-r-  ectly   rt cessary   for   the   conduct   of  war.     Stoiies   of   our   inhumanity   in  puventing Red Cross supplies reach  ing  Germany  now  match  those  vU'i  which     wc  are   ass tiled   for    ciisirrr  th.j eternal avenues of food   Nur-M-*-  are sarc to have d'icl for the l__k of"  i-ubbo'- gloves,  and Gc-many c'arrri-  for   carbolic    acid. -    The   interesting  feature  of  such    complaints    is  that  rubber  and    carbolic    acid  are    two  prime necessities of war, and a proper  proportion can only be preserved  for  hospitals if the direct war'supply is  restricted.   Carbolic acid is the parent  of  picric' acid,   melinite  lyddite,   and  can be decomposed into    the parent  of trinitro-toluene.    There is-a" shortage, also, *of metals. <  The   most    fundamental    shortage,  however, is of men.     If all the men \  could   be   devoted   to   intensive   agriculture and to chemistry these other  needs   could   be   satisfied.    And   this  should  be  sufficient  to  show  that, a  siege   is   essentially-   a   military   problem.    If a military decision could be  achieved the siege would end.    A recent order  of  the  German  war ministry  points  out   that  even  for _work  that  is  ','hoth  urgent -and **of- important for the  Conduct  of the  war"  exemption for trained    and skilled men  can   only   bo    granted     where    their  physique  is such  that they, are  only  fit   for- garrison   duty   and   non-combatant  service.     What,   then,   is   the  value of von ]\roltke's statement that  Germany   has  plenty   of   human   material.      Further   we  know    that  the  bulk   of   the   1916   class   has   already  been engaged, and'this, together with  tlie fact that even  skilled  hands  are  being  taken  from   munition   work,   is  sufficient    to   prove    that    the   man  supply is falling rapidly.     The "best  nualified   authority   of   Germany"   in  America  boldly  admits  that  the  war  is a draw.    There can be no defeated  side,   and   the   status   quo   ante   will  be  accepted.    Tn  the. light of such  a  stat^ment   ve   are   perfectly   justified  in deducing that the besieged has no  hope  of relief and  sees more  capitulation in prospect.     It is completely  unthinkable  that   a   responsible   German  could  ever have made such au  admission. otherwise.  Yet  how   to   reduce   this    besieged  fortress most  rapidly    is  a    question  of   some   difficulty.     The   area  under  siege is so wide and its.defence works  so   various  that  the  problem   bewilders   while   it   stimulates.       Yet   it   is  sufficiently    like  all  fortified    or entrenched     areas to  be considered  in  the  same    way.      The  aim of every  general     besieged   by   a   temporarily-  inferior but rapidly increasing enemy  is to push out his  lines, and  weaken  the  concentration   against  him.   That  was the real intention of the German  staff   in   involving   Turkey     in     the  struggle.     We   have   been; compelled  to -keep forces in  distant places.' But  in  attacking Turkey  in  force   we  are  suing  the   most   roundabout   way    to  end   the  war:    The  Turkish  field   re-  ���������presents  the most distant outer lines  of   the   fortress,   whereas   we   should  realize that on   the  western  front we  are  attacking the  key sector.    If  we  drive  in  the  western   front,  the- wa**  will he at an end.      But if we march  to the gates of Constantinople, if having put  Turkey out of reckoning  wp  advance to Belgrade, if we take Buda-  Pesth,   Germany  is   not  beaten,   and  will   not   necessarily   be   any   nearer  capitulation.  It is true that a victory in any  part of the field must have its influence upon the operations elsewhere*  and where lines of investment are  presumed impregnable as the defensive lines against which they stand  sentinel. It is tempting to force tbe  fighting on a sector where the manoeuvre war is still possible. Yet the  German lines can only be considered  impregnable by ignoring the lessons  of Neuve Chapelle, Loos and Carency.  and we do .wrong to think the cost  of an advance to Belgrade as less,  than that of breaking" through in  the west, merely because the casualties would be less immediate. Ulti-'  mfttely; they would probably he far  higher, while the effect would he far  less. But since through some division  of interesis and counsels wo have em-  harked upon riiajor offensive operations; in the east we must see them  through, and in this way so shorten  our lines against the main eneniv  that our preponderance of force will  be overwhelm  Serious  Agricultural     Education     Not  Yet Available in  Public Schools  At the present time most of the  Canadian provinces provide instruction in elementary agriculture for  pupils who attend the "public schools.  The teachers,���������for the most part girls  ���������are given a month's training in  some institution, and are then graduated as instructors of the subject. The  course usually covers Botany, Entomology Gardening, Animal Husbandry, Field Husbandry and Nature  Study. A nicely engraved certificate  is given at the end of the course and  the teacher goes home filled with the  happy dignity of having broadened  her .sphere of work.  These teachers cannot teach agri-  eultiiii*. cannot even make a bluff at  it. The fanner knows this. What  would happen if ho went to ask tho  local school teacher win instructs his  children in "Agriculture" for information regarding crop rotation on a  certain piece of land on his farmP-She  would probably turn to her note book  and read him something.taken down  from a professor's lecture. He would  gim if he were good natured, ifr not  he would say something.  Can you think of another subject  on the curriculum cf any institution  in which you would care to have your  child instructed hy a teacner of similar training? I think not.  In Canada we have not made agriculture   a  High  School   subject.    We  attempt  to   teach   the   veiy   elements  of the science, that is all. Should the  boy want turthor instruction he must  go to college.    All farmers' sons cannot do thi<*     The consequence is that  serious agricultural education lias not  yet touched, the masses of the farming communities, except through agricultural    journalism     and     societies  formed among tho farmers themselves.  In   the   United   States  more .is   being done."'  In the Duluth, Minn, high  school, practical work of a decidedly  "secondary"  nature  has  been  undertaken.    In 1014 the School Board voted $150.00'for the purchase of a creamery  outfit such   as  could   be   recommended  for a  farmer  with' ten  cows.  The    equipment,    all     hand      power  models, 'consists  of cream  separator,  combined   churn   anel   butter-worker,  butter printer, ice box, Babcock tester,  acidity test    ouftit,  salt test    outfit,  .moisture test scale, butter print scale,  cream scale, cream cans,  and minor  ".utensils.  ' The agricultural* department, then  in. its second year only, was already  one of the most active divisions of  Central High School; and the new-  equipment was received with such interest and enthusiasm 'that in the  1914-1915 school year the embryo  farmers made a total of 2,891 pounds  of the best creamery butter in 170  churm'ngs.  The Student Creamery Company of  the high school is an organization  .among the boys of the agricultural  department, similar on a small scale  to the most approved type of farmers'  co-operative creameries, for the purpose of obtaining both the manufacturing and the business experience of  creamery practice. Tire student members produce the cream and milk by  purchase, and sell to their creamery,  profits from which they share in proportion to their respective patronage.  Agriculture advanced enough to he  cf praetic.il benefit, cannot be taught  apart from tho farm. Why should,  there not be a school farm? Farming covld then be studied as a science,  as an art and as a business. The  cost would not be great for farming  is a profitable employment and the  school farm must not only run itself  but must also pay dividends on money  invested.  Of course there would, be many details to arrange, much preiudice to  overcome, in fact much hard' work- for  the agricultural educationalist who  would undertake the work.  "Elementary education should be  supplemented by secondary educa-  j tion. The high school graduate of  the 'future, if he is to spend his life  on the farm, should *be able to turn  to account_ knowledge obtained at  school. This cannot be done as our  courses of study now exist. Theory  should give place to practice.���������Montreal Family Herald.  Organized by the Governments of the  ��������� Three   Prairie   Provinces      r  ,  A Bureau of social research has  recently been organized under the  joint control of the provincial governments of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and  Alberta in order to make a more careful investigation of general social welfare questions than has hitherto been  possible by any existing government  department or public institution.  The purpose is in general to  moke  lems with a view (a) to piornoting a  more general interest in social welfare,  (b) providing expert advice and assistance to any community desirous of  organizing its forces for more efficient  citizenship, (c) securing data which  will form the basis for sound and progressive legislation.  The functions of the bureau are twofold���������1st, to secure information'; this  will bo done through co-operation with  public and private agencies and by  special investigation, 2nd, to dissemi-  nato such information by means of  reports, bulletins, the public press,  lectures, correspondence, etc.  - Two kinds of investigation will be  carried on during tho first year���������(1)  The care of immigrants, with special  reference to the Ruthenians who are  settled in large numbers in the rural  districts of all' three provinces; (2*)  A preliminary enquiry with regard to  the feeble-minded, for whom as yet  there is no proper institutional care.

The work of the bureau  of Social Research will be in the probably more important direction of treating with the."human resources" and  in this work it is felt that the bureau  will  receive the unstinted  support of  the public.

Internal  conditions  in   Germany    are  probably influencing them very greatly.    They have to  face  three, months  of. steadily-increasing scarcity of food  within their own borders; and though  they   may   harvest    their    grain,   no  amount of organization can add appreciably to their stores of meat.  When  the   strategists    of  Germany    gloated  over   tho   military   advantages   they  would  derive  from   an   elaborate   war  machine  operating  on   interior   lines,  they   were  reckoning  on   a  short war  anel   on  the. defeat  of  their  foes    in  turn.

Meat Production  In the United States between 1900  and 1913 the population increased 24  per cent., while cattle decreased 30  per cent. In Russia, Argentina and  Brazil there were also decreases. In.  France, Germany and the United  Kingdom, and Austria-Hungary there  were slight increases, but only in  France at the same ratio as the population. In Australia alone was there  relatively a greater growth in .the  number of cattle than of people. In  Canada, the population during the  period mentioned increased 35 per  cent., but in cattle only 20 per cent.  Those facts are surely pregnant with  significance of the opportunity that  lies before Canada in the breeding of  cattle. The same state of things exists, only in a more emphatic way.  as regards sheep, and even as regards swine the depletion last year  was of such extent as to produce a  certain measure of-'scarcity this year.

A  For Cream Buying Stations  New   Regulations  in  Saskatchewan   in  Order to   Improve Quality  of Cream  Regulations governing Cream Buying Stations, effective after June 15,  1916, have been issued'' by tlie Dairy  Branch, Department of Agriculture,  Regina. and require that 'all such  tuitions be -licensol and subject to  inspection.     '  To protect the reputation of the  creamery butter of Saskatchewan in  both home arid export markets, it has  been considered advisable to provide  that certain conditions be complied  with in order to protect the quality  of-a product so easily injured as butter. Owners of cream buying stations  throughout the province have already  been advised of the conditions necessary and application forms sent, them  ���������to apply for license. The buying of  cream through the medium of buying  stations was rapidly becoming a serious danger not only'in Saskatchewan  but in the other prairie'provinces as  we'll. Buying stations for the purchase of cream were being established  in towns and villages all over the  West, many of these, by merchants  who had no experience or knowledge  in the testing or care of cream, and  who had no "suitable place or equipment for handling  it.  Generallv speaking, little or no attention has been given by the cream  buying stations to the grading of  cream", and farmers have been paid  as much for over ripe cream of bad  ilavor as for sweet cream of good flavor. Furthermore, the identity of the  cream is lost at the buying stations  through the mixing of the cream for  shipment to the creamery, and the  creamery receiving it. is unable to  determine which farmers are sending  good cream or which bad. eoiisequenl-  ]v no improvement in the care or  quality of the cream could be hoped  for under these conditions.

Cream handled* under these condition*' must seriously injure the quality of the butter manufactured, and  the general inferior quality of dairy  butter is transmitted through the  J buying stations to the creamery butter", and would eventually deprive the  better dairymen of lhe export market,  where through years of hard work a  good reputation has been gained,  ('ream buying stations also mean less  uioney for the farmer who produces  the cream, because ot the added cost  of the middleman who operates the  station.  Express charges are paid by practically all of the creameries so there  is nothing to prevent any farmer from  shipping his cream direct to a creamery. The express'companies give a  rate on a five gallon can of cream, and  any farmer with two or three cows  should be able to Siiip a full can of  this si/.e every four or five days, so i  the argument that the small farmer  is deprived of a market for his cream  does not hold good. In any case cans  partially filled cm be forwarded and  are  acceplcd  by  the  creameries.  The regulations recently issued by  the Dairy Commissioner with respect  to buying stations do not impose any  hardship nor ask for any unnecessary  equipment or accommodation, but,  simplv provides for conditions under  which cream can be handled properly  and the farmer who produces it obtains fair returns for his labor.  Regulations similar to those enacted  by the Saskatchewan Government  have recently been passed by the  "Manitoba Government. Cream buying  stations have become even more numerous in that province than in Saskatchewan, and' already the quality  of "Manitoba butter has been injured  by cream shipped from buying stations.

Xapofeon spoke truly when he said  that armies fight on their bellies. The  British commissariat has had many  'irobleins to solve. Men well fed at  iiome have to be well fed at the front.  The English soldier must have his  jam  and" marmalade  as Well as beef.  The Russian soldier presents an  easier problem. All he asks is plenty  ol "stchee," a sort of gruel or thick  sou]) made of pork, oatmeal, potatoes  .and cabbage, boiled together with salt  and other seasoning. Tho French soldier also consumes vast quantities of  what he calls "soup," although in  reality it is a thick and nourishing  stew, made of meat, .potatoes, and  various other vegetables.  Italian soldiers demand-their regular supply of macaroni and spaghetti,  'and eat little meat.

The  German soldiers get their meat rations  largely in the form of sausage. Give  a Teuton plenty of sausage with beer  to wash it down and he is perfectly  content.  The British fighters fiom India demand a menu entirely different, from  that of the Tommies, and the Turcos  of the French army are also peculiar  in their tastes. The food most favored by the colored Algerian soldiery  is "eous-cous," or boiled semolina,  made of the large hard grains retained in flic bolting machine after the  fine flour has passed through it. The  semolina is served either plain, or  with the addition of vegetables, sometimes with a little mutton or goat  flesh added.

"London is as well off as far as equipment goes to ward off Zeppelin raids  as Paris," he said.

More Wood Pulp Mills  Canadian   Wood   Pulp   Will   be   Used  to Supply  the  Empire  Some months ago, when the relationship between Great Britain and  Sweden was somewhat stiainod owing  fo ihe effect of German influence in  the press and the seizure by the British war shins of vessels suspected of  carrying contraband from Swedish  ports to the enemy, the Government  of Sweden, as a reprisal, forbade the  export of pulp fo Great Britain. That  net ion resulted in an immddiate rise  in the price of pulp sulphite, curtailment in the- size of newspapers in  Great Britain, and a situation ��������� that  gave a "measure of anxiety to the  paper mills, whose stocks were not-  large.  Canada was appealed to. But .her  transportation service was so handicapped, and her own supplies so restricted, that shipments on a large  scale could not be considered. The  price of pulp in the meantime continued to mount, up till they were five  times dearer than when war broke  out.  Information to hand from London  is to the effect that the embargo put  upon pulp from Sweden is virtually  removed, but that, it is too late for  Sweden to regain the trade-that she  lost by her action. Considerable progress, has been made with- arrangements for the. establishment in Canada of a huge mill for the production  of sulphite pulp and it .is expected  that it will not be necessary to import  much pulp from Sweden after the  war. .     .  Where are the Old Ladies  How   the   Old   Ladies   oF   the   Present  Age  Have   Become  Transformed  Someone was saying ihe other day  (and she won't mind seeing her idea  here) that the elderly woman of today  i*= sowing her wild oats and haying the  protracted good time of her life. Obviously from the lime a woman is  married her. years are filled with cares  and responsibilities, until finally tho  children grow up, marry, leave home,  and, husband having developed the  poise and content of the usual elderly person, she finds lo her amazement  that she is free. Then comes the  period of wild oats. She keeps a date  book*, goes to clubs, has a place on  boards of things, travels on the federation special across continent,'as  likely as not, livesat hotels, sends her  own telegrams, orders taxis, treats  other women to luncheons and dinners, makes speeches, votes'if she has  a chance, legislates, uplifts and keeps  a telephone on her desk. These are  only a few. If she is not interested  in this sort of thing yrou will discover  her tucked away in the back scat of  a touring car, where she is not the  least trouble in the world, and is always under all circumstances, a perfectly splendid credential of respectability.

Prepare   For  a Knockout  To whichever part of the European  fronts we look tho most remarkable  fact is still the refusal or the allied  commands to be piovoked into a premature, offensive. Evidently tho British have only to be unleashed on the  west and the- Crown Prince's effort  must be arrested; so, too, the Aus-  trians can be concentrated upon "the  Trentino because no special pressure  is being put upon them in the east and  southeast. There can only be one  rational interpretation of these facts,  and in France the army and civilian  public realize it so well that they bear  tho strain, without a whisper of complaint. The allies have now a definite  ascendancy andat any moment they  can reduce the enemy to a defensive  on any and every, side, but the autumn "offensives in the Champagne  and Arlois taught their authors many  things. They effected more in a few  days than the Crown' Prince won on.  the Meuse in three months. Here is  the measure of the difference of  strength  today.'  The German command undertook the  battle of Verdun because it could not  contemplate a larger operation, and  it is now so deeply involved that it  cannot draw out. The allies, on the  other hand, are so bent upon a vastly  larger operation, which they hope will  be decisive, that they prefer to risk  local and momentary losses rather  than postpone the day when they will  be fully ready fo deliver in common  their knockout blow. It would, therefore, be unfair to General Joffre and  the General's officers and men directly  concerned to regard the struggle north  of Verdun as a fair trial of strength.  Vast as are its proportions and the  sacrifices involved, it is over-shadowed  by a coming event incomparably  greater. Enemy strategy, whether on  the Meuse or the Adige, is to destroy  this menace: It is at once the weakness and strength of the allies that  while putting forth at these points just  a sufficient defensive effort they must  never compromise the supremely important work of preparation.���������London  Chronicle.   -.

THE  ARLINGTON COMPANY  OF  CANADA, Limite-l  5S  *"r_ser Avenue, Toronto, Ontario  What The Huns Would Do  Germany's Idea of the Meaning of the  Freedom  of 'the Seas  The "freedom'of the seas" that Germany wants is freedom to paralyse  the sea-power of the maritime States,  and first'of all the sea-power of England. That,' as she well knows, was  the invincible obstacle - to universal  over-lordship against which Napoleon,  who "was her oppressor, and is her  model," dashed himself in vain. Were  it removed from her path by the  "reforms" she advocates in international law, she would bo free to pursue her ideal well-nigh unchecked.  \Xc know what thai ideal is. We  have learnt it from her speakers and  writers, but most from her actions,  ft is a German domination in all  branches of human activity, founded  upon the brute force of a vast army  which is moved by an autocratic  government. Does any man fancy  that, if Germany had the power upon  the water that she has in Belgium  'or in Poland, she would not use'it  with the same unscrupulous ruthless-  ness? -Would there be fewer Lusitan-  ias and fewer Sussexes when she was  strong than when she is weak?  She would bind herself, no doubt,  by solemn treaties/- but she -would  keep them as she kept the solemn  treaties that pledged her to defend  Belgian neutrality and the laws that  iorbid her to sink merchantmen at  sight. That consideration alone must  constrain maritime nations, like  Emrlarul and America, to retain their  fleet's. Did they foolishly,reduce their  navies Germany,might at any moment  tear up the new treaties consecrating  the "freedom of the "seas" and destroy  their trade, on that "plea of military  necessity 'which justifies all lawlessness and all wickedness in her eyes.���������  London  Times ,,  No Need For Crop Failures, I   *jvjq  _AL___JiS/T  Success For Next Year's Crop Depends ~~" "   Most infants are infested by worms,  which cause great -suffering, and if  not promptly dealt with' may cause  constitutional weaknesses difficult to  remedy.

H. Grisdalc, director of* the  Dominion Experimental farms. /'The  Canadian farmer who will do his work  wisely and .well each year and all' the  year around need seldom or never fear  but that a crop, fair to good at least,  and usually excellent, will generally  reward his well-timed and well planned effort.  In his advice to farmers, Mr. Grisdalc declares that, "if you 'really  want a good crop in 1917," now is the  lime to plan and prepare. The.'success of any years work on the farm  depends in no small measure on the  preparation made therefore the previous year.  "You can do very little now to  affect the yield from your fields-.in  1016, save only the hoed crops of one  kind or another, but you can do and  should do very considerable in the  next .three months in the way of "properly preparing for, and so ensuring,  good crops in 1917. While harvesting  this year's crop must take, first place,  these operations can be so conducted  as cither to improve or injure the  prospects for the next year's crop.  "Then, again, a few hours' attention iu July to weed-cutting around  fences, spudding in grain fields, and  particularly hoeing and cultivating in  corn "and root fields and, cleaning the  summer fallows will do'more to ensure good crops in 19J7 than will as  many days hard work next spring  when the chances arc you will bf  just as busy 'as you are today, if  riot, even more rushed. Doing 'things  when the cost of the work is lowest,  as judged'by the results, is the right  way to farm, and lhe only way to  farm if one wishes to be* sure to  profitable returns year after year.  ."The  farmer  who  regretfully  says,  Horse Prices Upward  Cropless Lands  up  leak's Cotton Root Compound.

The opening up  of non-agricultural  j lands    to   settlement    lit's     produced  I some of the    most far-reaching    and  .pitiful   tragedies   in-the   Dominion's  history.   Every province lias communities   which   have   been   permitted   to  make the fatal error of a bad location.  Their   subsequent   history   is   an   unbroken line of bad crops, poverty, suffering and human demoralization. Too  poor to move away, the farmer and his  family resien themselves to a pitiful  standard  of Irving,  giving their time  and efforts for practically no return.  Every  piovince     and    the     federal  authorities  have  made such  blunders  rn times past nor is there satisfactory  evidence that a general and complete  reform     has     been     brought     about.  Farmers still aie  allowed on Federal  and provincial '11011-103103115' which are  impossible for field crops.   The policy  was, of course, more the result of lax-  itv in classification and not a deliberate effort to  send  settlers to useless  lands.   The laxness, however, is growing  iu public disfavor and the tendency  of   all   governments, now   is   to  pictcct   the   settler    and to   conserve  rocky,  sandy  aieas  for  their  natural  purpose of growing trees.  Several survey parties are engaged  on soil examinations this summer  and such work is bound to achieve  higher importance in the eyes of governments. One party, composed of  "Messrs F- C. Nunnick of the Commission of Conservation and Waller Graham of the Experimental Farm, Ottawa, are in "New Brunswick, co-operating with the provincial government  in a'schonie of land clac*sification.

Oh, well,  better one next year!' may be a bit  of a philosopher, but he is not much  of a farmer unless he gets busy and  tries to find out why the ./poor crop  this year' and what he must do to  avoid such a result under similar or-  worse conditions in  the future."

A friend and  neighbor had told him there was not  enough cotton and rags in the world  to supply the newspapers and other  publications with then raw material.  That was about forty years ago, and  Dr. Hill took a hornet's nest to the  superintendent of a nearby paper factory and asked him, "Why can't you  make paper like that?"*They sat down  together, took tho nest apart, analysed  it carefully, and decided that if a  hornet could make paper out of wood,  man ought to he able to do as much.  The doctor discovered that tho hornet  first chewed the wood into a fine pulp.  They decided to make machinery and  water do what the hornet's mouth  did. Such was the beginning of the  wood  pulp industry.  Good   Prospects ,Ahead  for the   Horse  Breeder  in  Canada  "The demand for horses in Canada,"  said J,i\as Stock Commissioner . John  Bright recently, "has already stiffened  considerably and I look forward to a  gradual return  to good prices. '  ���������When the panic of 1912 struck us,  as the banks shut down, tho horse  breeders were almost the first to feel  it. Consequently the tendency was  to stop breeding. In 1913, the tendency increased, while 1914 and I9J5  weru worse; so that there is a dearth  of foals this year, and a decided'scarcity of one-year-olds aaid two-year-  olds. .Breeding will come back slowly,  so that it will be'at hast four vcars  before the foals of tnis year come on  the market. -This means a ten-year  cycle in horse prices.

Later when horses  were at their big prices I sold, a filly  rising two years for $290, not' better  than the one I was offered J40 for in  J 892.  Tn good times, a great many breeders are foolish.

Woman Found  In a Zeppelin  What a  French  Officer Saw in  Burn-  \       ' ing Wreckage  , Among the interesting statements  gathered at Itevigny by the correspondent of the'"Petit Parisien" regarding  the end of the Zeppelin brought clown  in flames' by the French is that of an  inhabitant of the region whose evidence suggests that there was a woman on  board the airship.  "1 was scarcely more than twenty  yards away among the people crowded  round the burning mass of the monster sky-raider," he said, "when I saw  a French officer, whom I knew, scrutinizing through his ficldglass a particular heap of burning wreckage, the  names of which lit up the night.

Safety First  In "Fami and Fireside" is an account of the simple method that  ought to be employed everywhere by  which a farmer saved his property:  "One pail of water standing at the  foot of a ladder leading tothe haymow saved our barn," we read-.  ���������Lightning struck the barn, killing  two calves, then ran along to the top  of the haymow. My husband grabbed  the pail and ran up the ladder in  time to put out the fire, but if he had  had to wait to draw that water it  would have been too late."

Canada's Supply of Nickel  Rich   Deposits   in   Cobalt   District   of  Great  Value  to the   Empire  in Time of War  When the supply, of nickel has become one of the foremost needs of the  Empire it is well to recapitulate tlie  icsoui'ces that Canada, holds of the  coveted metal.  The total production of matte at  Sudbury, Out., in 19J5 was 07,703 tons,  containing 39,216,105 pounds of copper  and 0S,077,S2'> pounds of nickel, and  valued by the producers at ������2,070,000.  The tonnage of ore smelted (part being previously roasted) was 1,272,283.  The production in 1914 was 4G.39G tons  of matte, containing 28,896,825 pounds  of copper and 45,517,937 pounds of  nickel, and valued at ������1,433,000.  The reported recovery of nickel  from the ores of the Cobalt district  w*as 55,325 pounds of metals, and  200,032 pounds of nickel oxide. The  recovery in 1914 was '-.9*2,-12 pounds  of nickel oxide. About GO per cent,  of the Canadian nickel production is  exported to the United States, and a  far larger quantity of nickel finds its  way to the United Kingdom through  United States refineries than is exported directly from Canada.  The Canadian Government have  an agreement from the U. S. smelters  under which there is a practical certainty that noue of our nickel goes to  the enemy.
