Deceased  was a native of Alberta and  had been a resident of Hedley  for fifteen years. The husband  aud family have the" sympathy  of the whole community in  their bereavement. The funeral  was held Monday afternoon,  and the large attendance and  floral tributes showed the high  esteem iu which -'deceased"wus  held. Services were beld'at the  homo by. Rev. A. H, Cameron  of Keremeos, and at the fjraye  by the Ladies Orange Lodge,  of which deceased was an active  m ombor. Tho pallbearers wore  S. Knowles, H. E. Hansen, G:  Knowles, J. Jamoson, A. J.

It requires a net annual profit of  $1300 to" make an even break. There isn't a net annual  profit: of $1300 in the business.  . -There are a number of causes for the difficulties with  Which newspapers have to contend. Among them the  cost of paper and other printers' supplies, without a corresponding increase in the price of the printer's output:  Another cause of business depression in the mining  camps of B. C. is the large,number of aliens employed, due  to the enlistment of the patriotic young men, and to the  policy of American-and English companies discriminating  against-Canadians and other British born and employing  aliens (neutjral .and enemy). This policy has been pursued  for a number of years, and as a consequence there are few  British.bprn now employed in the. metalliferous mines of  tlie prpyiSde. Aiistf iiris roam at Will from camp to camp  without any seeming;check on them by Dominion or Provincial authorities. The alien, as a rule, is not a home-  bui!der,/e3pecially those from Southern and Southeastern  Europe.    They work for a few  years, save their money  them  -true  or not we don't know, but we Vlo know of mine and smelter  superintendents and foremen who became "well fixed"-  after a few yearsrand only where bohunks were employed.  As- those aliens increase in numbers local business de-  creases, and once prosperous towns become dead. Then  there are the company stores. While no one questions the  legal right of mining companies to engage in mercantile  pursuits any more than ��������� he would question the right of a  clergyman, a doctor or a lawyer to do so, but the same  regard for the ethics of the game should be observed by  mining men. The company stores often discriminate in  prices in favor of a few employees at the expense of the  many, the high-salaried employee getting his supplies  much cheaper than the low-salaried employees.  That the policy of. many of the mining companies  operating in British Columbia tends rather to cripple than  encourage the business energies of the communities in  which they operate cannot be disputed. This is not intended as a criticism of mining corporations. It is simply  a statement of facts in regard to conditions as they exist.  The blame for the conditions lies with the people of the  province, for allowing corporations privileges that should  not be granted under%4^mocfacy.  We thank the people of Hedley and the Similkameen  valley for their patroua^e, .especially the business men and  the Daly Reduction Co.  When the war is over and the home-builders return  Hedley should be a good town. The mineral is here. All  that is requirecfls mining and treatment. / 1  THE      GAZETTE.      HEDLEY,      B.

Thrift that brings ���������Comfort  instead of Sacrifice  THRIFT,   the   paramount   national   du./>  applies lo time as well as to money���������to  small personal outlay as well as to larger  family expenditure.   Applied to the daily shave,  thrift means the use of a  The Razor of National Service.  The Gillette reduces* shaving time to five  minutes or less���������an aclual saving of a week of  working days a year! To the man who depends  on the barber, it saves still more time, and from  $25 to $50 or even more annually. This means  the cost of one or several War Savings  Certificates.  Moreover, there is not a man living with a  beard to shave who cannot shave better with a  Gillette if he will use it correctly���������-with the blade  screwed down tight and a light Angle Stroke.  For the thousands of young men just  reaching shaving age the Gillette Safety Razor  is a source of good habits���������not only thrift, but  punctuality, personal neatness, and efficiency in  little things. For yourself or your son, at home  or Overseas, it is a splendid investment.

The  practical details of our buying are  rendeicd moie diilicult, moie complex by* ihe unecilaiiity regarding  the  future.  My experience in America -before  and since the war have given.mo an  unusual ..opportunity of judging the  easiness of her resources. If organized to their full capacity, T am  confident that the German hope of  starving the allies- or of causing unrest by the scarcity of food or high  prices is doomed lo  failure.  Wo are doing what we can off  our own bat by increasing home  production and decreasing- consumption, but in the main the solution of the primajy problem of supply lies in the hands of our Anierican allies and Canada. I am sure  they  will   not  let   us  down.  I lie   news  that  United   Slates  aie  urgent  demand  by-  wooden  ships   has  tc-rest in Australia,  cannot  ships be  built  well   as   in   Amciica?  ships   aio  regularly     launched    here-  why  nol  extend  the  industiy to larger,  ocean-going   vcsocls?  U appears that the same conditions  which  produced    the     demand      for  wooden  ships   have   made   it  difficult'  tor  Australia   'to   take   advantage     of  the  demand.      In   other   words,    the-  tiouble  hes  in   ihc  high   freight,prevailing.    Australia   produces "lillfc,   if  any,  timber suitable   for shipbuilding.  '  Pine  wood must be used, and in  the  past shipbuilders have employed Oregon   pine   from  America    and    kauri  fiom   Xevv   Zealand.       But   since   the  outbreak of war,  the  freight on Oregon pine has risen from 8 shillings to"-  9.-1   shillings   per   1000   feet,   and    the  price  from S shillings  to  35 shillings  per 100 feet, and therefore these rates  aro prohibitive. The Australian build-  oi   would be quite willing to use kauri,   which,   though   more   costly-than  usual,   is  still   not   at    a    prohibitive  price, but for some reason that ii not  vcry_clc.il", kauri cannot al present be  obtained from  New Zealand in   anything   like   the     required     quantities.  One   shipwright  has   suggested    lhat  New   Zealand   is     deliberately    withholding   the   wood,   though   he  could  offer   no   reason  for     the     Dominion  adopting such a course.  So the Australians are embarrassed  even in doing their usual insignificant ,  shipbuilding, and they cannot con-  tcmphite any extension of the industry.. There is an abundance of hard  woods, for the superstructure and  tiltingsof ships, but the only wood  that might prove a substitute for  pinc is the Australian cedar and cedar  it appears grows in such a scattcicd  way and in such inaccessible place1"  that it is not yet piovcd a payable  proposition.  One  shipwright has asked, and apparently   with   reason,   why   the  t-hip-  building   industry   should   not" bc^es-'-.,.  ir.blished  in  an     impoilant     way    in  Auckland?   lie  points   out  that with  i the  abundance   of  kauii    and    other  {suitable timbers available in Auckland  enlerpiising  builders should    be'.able  to compete with the Americans.   The  ' demand     for    wooden    merchantmen  I may not  persist more than five years,  but smaller wooden ships  will be rc-_  quired   for  a   considerable   lime  after  that.

For it came to the knowledge of  the administration that the ramifications of the secret organizations  which Germany has established in  the United Slates were far-reaching,  of great detail and perfected with  wonderful skill. It became necessary  to match the secret and underground  work done or plotted by this organization with work committed to the  secret service-chiefly, although the  police of the United States were frequently called into co-opetation.  Hid this secret work, which had for  its purpose the embarrassment of  the allies, and, so far as possible, the  catling off of their supplies from the  United States not been checked England and France certainly would have  found themselves at times in a very  serious  position.

Scenes in Saloniki  Preserving" Eggs  Valuable  by  Advice    Furnished  Government  Expert  Eggs can be preserved in dry salt,  lime water or water glass. Jn order  to secure satisfactory results egg^  must be clean, but not. washed, and  absolutely fresh when put down. Jn  preserving the object to be aimed at  is to exclude air, so as lo prevent evaporation of the egg from outside  sources. Where eggs are put down  in salt they should be set on end and  packing should be so done thai ail  parts of each egg will be covered  with salt.  In preserving with water glass ten  per cent, of tlie water glass should  be mixed with pure water and  thouroughly stirred. Ten quarts of  the mixture will cover fifteen to  twenty dozen" eggs. Any good, clean  vessel can be used, but it is better  lo use-one of wood, glass, or crockery than one of metal. A sweet,  clean barrel is, good, where fifty dozen or more are to be preserved. A  clean, cool, sweet cellar is the best  place to put the containing vessel.

"A good  fighting in France greatly depend  The plant where this apparatus is  manufactured is near Philadelphia. It  is one of the great industries of the  United Stales. Various attempts  have been made by violence, or by  fire, to do damage to this plant, and  some injury has, in that way, been  done. So great were the precautions  against violence or fire that destruction of that kind ceased. But how  did "Beilin learn of the departure of  vessels from ihe United States carrying certain steel and iron apparatus  of which the allies in France ivere in  great need?  The secret service was instructed  to ferret out if possible the manner  by which tin's information was conveyed to Germany and Ihe person or  persons who sent it. Some of the  bcsl of the agents were sent to the  plant. Their scrutiny of it and of  the employees was perfect but it furnished no clue. Neither was any clue  furnished by any search of the method by which the apparatus was ship-  pod from the plant to the steamers.  1 hercfore the secret service men  went a few days ago to the private  home of the president of the corporation and, having made another  search without success, asked that  the domestic servants be called.  "With   utmost  skill     the       servants  were  questioned and  examined,    and  still   no   clue   was   furnished   to     the  agents.     Then   they   asked   if  all   the  domestics had appeared before them.  In   reply   they   were   told   that   there  were two who had not.    One was the  valet  and   the   other  a  maid.    These  also  were   summoned  and   the    valet  was   first   questioned.     But   his  innocence   was   apparently  perfectly    established.     Then   the   secret    service  men  turned  to  the maid.    The modesty,  the    shrinking    demeanor,    the  childlike   manner   and   the     apnarent  innocence   of   the     maid     would     of  themselves   have  been    sufficient    to  persuade   a  detective   of  ordinary  intelligence that here also was no guilt.  J3nt of a sudden  one of  the secret  service men stepped behind  the maid  and, with quick hand and rapid clutch  lifted   from   her  head   a   wonderfully  made   wig,   and   there   stood     before  them,   not   a   young   woman,     but     a  young   man.       The   wig  itself    must  have cost a great deal of money, bc-  ciisc it was a work of art.    The bogus  maid   was an adept as  an actor.  The  hands  were soft,  there  was    no  sign   of  beard   and     the    complexion  was   fair.     Moreover,   until   the     wig  vas lifted, the eyes seemed to convey  perfect innocence.    The clue was sufficient.    The spy was taken  into custody and  is  now in  prison.  And  evidence  furnished hy this  clue  appears  to  implicate  the bogus  maid  as    the  source   of  information  sent   to    Germany.  Presumably the information sent-  lo Berlin by this spy was communicated for the purpose of giving warning to the submarines so that they  would lay in wait for the vessels and  sink them with their valuable cargoes.  While  there are likely to  be occasional  successes  due  to   the  work  of  spies,  nevertheless it  is  now.the belief   in   Washington   that   the   system  as a.  whole  is almost  completely demoralized   and     that     hereafter    the  United States will be substantially as  immune from damage done by spies,  or by information furnished by them,  as is Great Britain.    It is due to the  work  of    the  secret service    agents  that in the  city of New York  there  have been established certain  barred  zones which Germans will be unable  to   enter  unless   it  can     be     clearly  lid or cover on the containing vessel  will  prevent evaporation.  When water glass eggs are to be  boiled stick -a needle through the  shell at the large end of the egg to  prevent the  shell  from 'breaking. _  Mr. Franker. Shutt of Ottawa Experimental Faim says lime water is  quite as effective as water glass and  not so costly. One pound of fresh-  burned quicklime is enough for five  gallons of water. The method of  preparation is simply lo slack the  lime with a small quantity of water,  then stir the milk of lime so formed  into the five gallons of water. After  the mixture has been kept well stir-  ted for a few hours it is allowed to  settle. The supernatant liquid, which  is now saturated lime water, is drawn  ofl and poured over the eggs previously placed in a crock or watertight barrel.  As exposure to the air tends to  precipitate the lime (as carbonate),  and thus weaken the solution, the  vessel containing the eggs should be  kept covered. The air may be excluded by a covering of sweet oil or  by sacking upon which a paste of  lime is spread.  Brilliant   Costumes   of   Soldiers   Give  Dramatic Touch to  War  Scenes  in   Greek  Sector  As I was saying, the blue and  white Greek standard floats from the  battlements of the White Tower in  Saloniki. All around you float officers of the Greek army in blue and  silver full uniforms. They look slightly theatrical because all the other  armies are in service clothes. The  ends of their silverplatcd scabbards  arc muddy. So are their spurs. Many  of them are handsome in a fashion  plate way: dead while skin, dead  black mustaches, long legs, thin noses  dark  eyes,   empty   foreheads.  One in particular attracts one's at-  tction. He is wearing blue and while  cock's feathers in his hat white kid  gloves, and spins on his' feel. His  sword is across his knees and he is  explaining something with great energy lo his companions.  A French airman, vvho has skinned  his nose (possibly in a sudden descent) and who wears the military  cioss, sits behind a glass of vermouth. Several Russian lieutenants  in ihcir beautiful green tunics and  soft leather ������boots, are conversing  with a French major" An Italian  captain is reading a book. An English captain is talking to a lady.  Some Serbian officers appear to be  talking to themselves. Not one of  them seem to have anything to do.  Perhaps they think the same of me.  Lei us take the car back. The tall  and handsome Greek officers cram  into one poor little Ford runabout  and rattle off up the road. Let us  take  the car.  A Saloniki tram car is interesting,  believe me.  They nearly always haul a second  class trailer behind them. We go second class. It is a very small car,  and it is very full. The fare is a  penny. A Greek penny is a" nickel  coin with a hole in the centre, so  that it looks like an aluminum washer. The occupants of the car are of  all ages. Boys and girls and priests  arc in the majority. The children  are going to school as 'may be seen  with the books in their hands. The  priests are going���������wherever priests  go in the morning. If they are going to the barber's it would do them  no harm.

Commission to  Handle 1917 Crop  Many  and  of    Montreal, a  of the Toronto  Dairying in Manitoba  Manitoba Shows Startling Growth of  The Dairy Industry  The year 1916 has been a banner  one for the dairy industry of Manitoba. Unpreccdently high prices  have prevailed throughout the year  for all dairy products, thus making  it one of the most profitable years  financially to all connected with the  dairy industry. Everywhere pas-  lures of 1916 were satisfactory.  As a comparison note the difference in production in the years 1900  and 1916 in butter.  1900: 3,338,431 lbs.; value $541,-  661.04. 191*6: 10,997,799 lbs.; value  $3, 154,104.74.  The province has exported 81 carloads of butter during the last twelve  months or nearly 2,000,000 lbs. -Most  of this has gone cast but a good deal  of it  has gone west.   ,'  The cheese industry has also taken  a remarkable advance since the war  began. There was a time when over  a million pounds of cheese Were  made in this province but the production slumped to as low as a little over 400,000 pounds in 1913. In 1916  the production soared again to nearly  900,000 pounds.  In 1900 the cheese production was  1,021,258 lbs., valued at $103,330.05.  In 1916 the production was only 880,-  728 lbs. but. the value was $158,531.04  and this was an increase of 154,003  lbs. over the year 1915.  The   total   value  of   dairy  products  in the  province of Manitoba,    which  -includes   butter,    cheese,     milk    and  cream, was as follows:  1915: $3,845,183.82; 1916: $4,483,-  614.'85, showing an increase of $628,-  257.63 due to increased production  and higher prices.  Over 2,300,00 pounds of butter was  manufactured  in   Winnipeg in   1916.  Crescent Creamery made 900,000  lbs.; T. Eaton Co. made 500,000 lbs.;  City Creame-ry made 300,000; Holland  Company made 200,000; Manitoba  Creamery made 200,000 lbs.; Dominion Creamery made 200,000 lbs.  Gypsies Fled to Spain  And Now the Country is Filled With  Music of the Wandering Bands  Spain is filled with music. At nearly any hour of night or day one can  hear the twanging and twinging of  musical instruments. The country is  overrun by orchestras of Hungarian  gypsies.  These bands are among the most  famous in Europe. They usually are  located in Paris, Monte Carlo, Nice  and other centres of gay life. When  the war began these players, being  Hungarians, had to get out of France  or be interned as enemies. If they  had returned to Hungary they would  have had to put rifles on their shoulders in place of violins. So they all  migrated into Spain, filling' the country with music.  Spain already had its share of gypsies, relics of the days of the Moors.  These greeted the newcomers with*  open arms. They play together aud  often hold grand entertainments, at  which one of the Hungarian gypsy  bands play, an Austrian Polish gypsy  sings and a Spanish gypsy dances.  Pastor Imperio, the fircy queen of  the Spanish gypsies who married the  king of the bull fighters, Guyio, is  one  of  the star dancers.  It is said the weird, Oriental strains  of the eastern gypsies, combining  with the wild toreador music of the  Spaniards, make strange, but plca>-  ing music. A few bars of American  ragtime is introduced now and then  to give dash to the dancing of the  tango and one-step. This medley of  music is heard everywhere, at entertainments, theatres, hotels,- concert  halls and even in the streets, for  Spain is crowded with these wandering  players.  Interests     Represented  Members are Given Wide  Powers  The government has appointed a  grain handling commission with wide  powers. The commission will be  composed of:      .,  Dr. Magill, secretary of the Grain  exchange, chairman.  H. \V. Woods, president of the  United Farmers of Alberta.  S. Iv. Rathwell, grain producer'oi  Moose Jaw.  T. A. Crerar, manager of ihe Grain  Growers'   Grain  company.  J. C. Gage, president of the Grain  exchange,  Winnipeg.  XV. Iv.

Lionel H. Clarke,  Harbor  commission.  VV. A. Malhcwson, western manager of the Lake of the Woods Milling   company.  James Stewart, Canadian representative on the British Wheat Purchasing  commission.  The commission will have authority to fix grain'prices on shipment  from storage elevators, but not the  price paid to farmers. They can  take offers of purchase from the British and allied governments, ,and determine what quantity to sell, having  regard to Canadian needs,, together  with the price' required. They will  further have power to take grain  from elevators without the permission of the owners, and fix the price  to  them and to  the purchasers.  They can investigate the storage  and accumulation of grain, and prevent the restriction  of marketing. _ ^  On the demand of the commission  the railway commission can order  cars to any point and in any number,  notwithstanding anything in the grain  act to the contrary. No grain price  can be fixed without the approval of  the  chairman.  Pending the formation of a United  Slates board, the Canadian board will  endeavor to hold prices on a parity  with those across the border.    ���������  Saving the Surplus  Home Canning of Vegetables Is Practicable and Necessary  The shortage of labor and the scarcity and high pi ice of tin cans has  very materially reduced the output  and increased the cost of canned vegetables; so much so, in fact, as to  make some lines almost prohibitive to  the average family.  There is. little reason, however, for  any Canadian family not providing a  sufficient^ supply for next winter.  Home canning of vegetables is a  simple matter; when put up in ordinary glass jars, securely sealed, they  arc equal if nol superior to the factory brand, and the cost is much  ���������lower. ��������� ���������   ',  Peas,  siring    beans,- sweet    corn',  pumpkins,   beets,   tomatoes     and    all  "vegetables which will  not keep with-"'  out cooking, may be canned.

They are  then dipped in cold water, packed in  glass jars, boiling water poured over  them to fill  up  the  crevices,  and  the;  lids   loosely   adjusted.     The  jars  aro  then placed in an ordinary boiler fil-.  led   with  water,   with   plates   or  dish  covers   to   prevent   the  jars** touching  the bottom of the boiler, and arc allowed-to boil steadily for 3 1-2 hours.  When lifted from the boiler, the lid3  must be screwed down tight, and the  jars   allowed   to  gradually  cool,  care  being taken that they are not exposed  to  drafts,  as  a  sudden  cooling    may "  crack the glass.

Now is the time to repair  the mowers, binders and rakes which  will very shortly be required for service. All machines should 'be inspected now and, if any parts are  broken or missing, they should be obtained immediately. It is much better to secure what is ncded now than  to risk having to make a special trip  to town during the busy season, thus  causing a serious delay, and, possibly  extending the harvesting of the hay  or grain crop into wet weather. It is  also an excellent plan to keep on hand  a few extra pieces or parts which  need frequent renewing, such, as  knife sections, canvas slats, reel slats  and braces, rivets, etc. These are  convenient to "-have and will often  save  time and annoyance.  Clean out the oil cups and oil all  running parts of the" machinery a  few days before it is to be used. This  will allow the oil to penetrate to the  bearings and permit the .machine to  quickly get. into snVoo-th running order.  The knives should all be sharpened  and in readiness.

How a Zepp. Was Caught  Daring Feat , of   Aeronaut   Crowned  With Success ���������   ' , -  There is a pretty tale of bluff con-  "ccrning a British naval airman who  destroyed the -first Zeppelin' we accounted for in the war. This flier  was one of a squadron of^two or-  three machines that attacked. Dussel-  doff towards the end of 1914, the c-b-'  jective being a new type of-Zeppelin  just arrived from the factory."  As the daring airman approached  out of the mist towards the hangar -  he was "heavily fired -on, and things  b~egan to get tinc.omfortable. It-was  necessary for him to descend to a  comparatively low height if he were  to be sure of hitting the Zeppelin  shed, so he adopted the ruse of driving his machine downwards in such  a way as to make the enemy think"  that it had been hit and was falling.  They were completely bluffed by  the manoeuvre, and ceased^ fire, with  the result lhat the airman got to  within about 300 feet of the shed and  destroyed both it and the Zeppelin.  His departure was made a bit warm  by the fire of "Archibald," but he got  clear away.

Inexhaustable    Supply     in     Alberta  Available for Manufacturing  Purposes  One of the greatest resources or  the province of Alberta is the enormous deposit of natural gas lo be  found in many parts of the province,  but especially in the south-eastern  section, near Medicine Hat. At Medicine Plat itself there are twenty wells  owned by the municipality of the  city, with an approximate daily open  flow of 50,000,000 cubic feet, equal to  200,000 horsepower, of which less  than one-tenth is actually in use.  Seventeen wells flowing about 170",-  000,000 feet a day, have been drilled  at Bow Island, the gas being piped  200 miles to the city of Calgary, supplying Letbbridge and Macleod arid  other towns en route. Gas has also  been found near Wetaskiwin,  Castor,  There Appears to Be no End of Uses  to Which the Cocoanut  Can Be Put  In the West Indies, Central and  South America, the cocoanut is used  chiefly for local consumption, the  water from the green cocoanut being  a beverage decidedly cool and- refreshing, with medicinal values. The  leaves from the centre of the top of  the tree make an excellent salad and  arc to be found in all Latin-American  markets in the zones in which they  grow. The hevyn tree serves the native for a habitation and a roof is  made from the gigantic fronds. From  the smaller leaves excellent hats of a  high grade are fashioned, but few of  which reach this counry. from some  localities ripened nuts are exported  in bulk in the holds of ships, often as  ballast, to this country, where a few  concerns are engaged in grating cocoanut meat for the use. of confectioners and bakers. -   .  In the West Indies today a new use  has been discovered for this article.  Owing to the inability of these islands to obtain butter from either  Denmark or the United States, local  housewives are now making their  own butter from cocoanuts, four nuts  yielding a pound  of high   grade  but-  Viking, Tofield, High   River and    on/ter, at a cost of less-than  ten cents,  the Athabasca River.

Buchanan Says He Had Told  Czar an Irresponsible Autocracy was Doomed  Sir George Buchanan, the British  ambassador, addressing a great meet-__  ing held under the auspices of the  Russo-British society, said he had  constantly tried to impress on former Emperor Nicholas that in the  twentieth century an irresponsible "  autocracy was an anachorism which  could not endure. Russia, the ambassador said, had captured the bas-  tile of autocracy by assault in a single week-and must consolidate the  new-won freedom.  "If you would keep it," Sir George  continued, "not only- must you defend it against attacks of the enemy  but also drive him from the national  territory, in order that your brothers  in those occupied provinces, may enjoy the same measure of freedom a3  yourselves. To enable you to icap  the harvest ow your revolution the  democrats of France and Great  Britain have been holding or driving  back the main forces of the Germans  and shedding their blood not only in  defence of iheir national, patrimony,  but to safeguard the new-born liberties of Russia. Had they not done  so, had the Germans not transferred  westward large bodies of troops who  had been concentrated on your front,  it might have gone hard with free  Russia.  "We look for you now. to help relieve the constant pressure on our  front by yourselves taking the offensive and thus bring the war to  a speedy end and secure to the world  the blessings of a permanent peace."  Big Increase in Crop Areas  A return issued by the census and  statistics office of the Canadian government shows the increase .that has  taken place in the area under crop in  Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta  of recent years. The acreage under  wheat in these provinces in 1906 was  5, 620,493, and in 10 years this increased to 13,799,897. During the  same period the area.under oats was  tripled, and under flax more than  quadrupled.        _..'���������"  "Is he ambidexterous?"

Of course,    the  . soldici   who had  his rifle  stolen  had  to go shopping  likewise,  for he clid-  - n't dare be without a rifle. "Shopping" is the recognized way of keeping one's equipment complete.

About Nov. 1, 1914, it was  decided to discontinue the construction of the 1886 model and gradually  to lcplace the equipment with the  1907 model. By Nov. 15 it was seen  that rifles would be needed before  the 1907 model could be manufactured Ihe losses at this time totalling  about 500,000. To hurry matters it  was decided to transform the supply  of 1874 model single shot rifles, thus  avoiding the necessity of making a  stock, a breech and part of a magazine A new barrel would be required so as to use the new model 1*  caitndge.

Big Fruit Crop in Sight  According to the British  Columbia  Department  of    Agriculture,    jridica-  ftions are that the fruit crop, arid jnr  deed the general agricultural production of the proyince this year, will be  heavy.

Odd Place  Within a mile or so of the front I  found a Canadian Forestry battalion  at work. The noise of the circular  saw mixed peculiarly with the con-  slant throbbing of the heavy guns  A short distance fiom the sawmill  were remnants of buildings wrecked  by enemy shell iire.' This mill of the  Canadians runs day and night, and  is lapidly eating up the neighboring  wood. A thousand feet an hour'is  the average output of the mill, and  il will be doing better than this very  shortly, as soon as the.. new*machin-  ciy arrives. Machinery already es-  tablishecl bears the name of a well  known  firm   of  Canadian  makers.  Timber operations within range of  German guns very naturally has its  own peculiar inconveniences. ..Of  course, there is always the risk of the  mill and its workers being blown to  atoms by shell or by bombs fiom  air craft. Such dangers arc part of  the ordinary business of the day in  these parts.  "'The trees with .which the' particular mill is-dealing have been "strafed" by the Boche intermittently "for  months past,-which . brings ..another  problem to the workcrs-in the mill.  Chunks "of shell are embedded -in  many of the trunks anel in the course  of months these chunks have in  many cases become overgrown and  difficult of detection through superficial inspection; consequently " there  "is" trouble when such a trunk comes  tinder the saw. But," in'spite of this  'and other difficulties" the mill constantly .turns ouf its 'thousand feet  an hour,'producing big balks for road  mending and for the'building of dug-  outs,--lighter stuff 'for pit-props . and  trench revetments and_ timber of  every kind which can be put to any  use in the business of'war.  A journey of many' miles into one  of the-fairest parts of France, into a  part'where the peasant even yet runs  into the road to stare al the spectacle  of soldiers in khaki, reveals, still  more .of the Canadian foresters-._ at  work. They have a most interesting  body of- assistants���������Boche prisoners.  The German in 'the French woods  seems happy in his lot." I, watched  a couple score of them - engaged in  "stumping." From the manner in  which they hauled at the tackle there  was no reason for apprehension that  any of them would drop from sheer  exhaustion. They seemed tractable  enough, though, and went about the  work with at least a- show of interest.  All were sturdy fellows, but the majority in the prime of life. One wore  the ribbon of the Iron Cross.  They were all in German uniforms  of field-grey,, but the head-covering  was most varied. A good many had  tlie round cap of the German infantry, others" wore trench helmets, one  or two had the woolen "comforter"  cap such as was sent out to our own  men in the winter, a few wore ordinary civilian cloth caps. Here and  there at a short distance were "the  soldiers of the guard, from English  infantry battalions. The guard was  not numerous. One man with a rifle  is capable of looking after a power  of his fellows who" cannot summon  such a  weapon  amongst them.  Work was suspended punctually at  mid-day" and the company trooped off  to dinner. It was served out hot under the trees by the prisoner-cook.  An imperial officer accompanying us  spoke a -sentence to the man in his  own tongue,- a"hd learned that the  prisoner was a cook by profession.  "I speak half a dozen Indian tongues,  but I believe it is the first time/ I  have tried to speak German for 17  years," remarked the officer to us.  Having duly received their portions  in their tins the prisoners squatted in  groups under' the trees and jabbered  away to one another volubly. I saw  more potatoes put away in that picnic of Germans in a French wood  than I had seen consumed, in London    during the previous    couple . of  months. :. ��������� .'.-.'.- :.  Another longish journey, through  most beautiful country, and I reached a third Canadian mill. Save for  the villagers the Canadians have the  district pretty well to themselves,  and here again they are_rapidly letting daylight into  the woods.  In these French forests the lumbermen of Canada are working among  their own peculiar element in the  same manner to which they are accustomed at home, save that they are  under military rule. Before the war  is over the forestry battalions will  have left their mark on France in a  double sense.   ____^___  Digestibility of.

They have the  well-being of the country, of both the  army and the civil population, at their  mercy; for intense energy on every  acre and rod of available land is,  above all else, vital to the nation's  safety and^heallh.  Everyone knows this, but, in spite  of the patent fact, farmers here, there  and evciywhere have deliberately of  a settled policy gone "on stiike."  They ate attempting to win-thc unhappy cuiarrel between themselves,  the'food conti oiler, the consumer and  the board of agiicultuiefby "downing  dibl les" and "calling canny." The  fact is as ceitain as if a lcgular strjke  had been publicly- called by a central  association. Inquiiy reveals instances from Kelso to the Weald of  Kent and all along the route.  What are*the rights in this suicidal  dispute which is paralyzing the land  and will, if it continues, paralyze the  nation? Government has dealt two  blows.. It has taken away labor and  made, an endeavor to fix maximum  prices. The result has been to antagonize the -whole of the-- fanning  interest, with.the inevitable issue that  the compulsory cheapening of food  today will entail the utter absence of  food, cheap or dear, at a latcV stage.  , The consumer, who is quite as an:  gry with the farmer as the farmer  with the government, will suffer later for every enforced reduction of  price  today.  What are wc to do to straighten  out this wrangling brawl, {his triangular, duel, which is striking-a mortal  blow-at our national efficiency?  "The first duty undoubtedly belongs  to the government. They must act,  and-at once. It is open to them to  benefit at' one blow both producer  and ."consumer. They have only # to  guarantee farmers a . suitable " minimum price for his .products for the  next five harvests, and,not an acre  will be left idle.

With  a sure and-solid prospect'in front.of  them farmers would nol be driven to  the present devices of profiteering  and tricks of evasion from lnaxinuie.  prices. At the same time the land  must be flooded with labor, the best  available: and a farmer with his heart  in the business can -make most_ efficient use of very poor material if he  scis profit in it.  Such action is owed by the nation  to tha farmer with whom it is now at  logger-heads. Who "was, wrong in  the first place does not matter.

Greater Interest in   the   Automobile  Clubs Would Help to Better Conditions  During tho spring and summer  there is always considerable agitation  regaiding automobile clubs and good  roads. In piactically every town and  village in the Canadian West there is  some local motor enthusiast, who  feels that tho joys of moloiing are  so gicat, that the entiic motoring  fiaternity of his community should  be cemented into a concrete body  called a club, whose members are  willing to bear the trials and tribulations of every other member, and  whose cars are receptacles into  which may be poured the troubles of  motoring and likewise the joys. In  most cases this enthusiasm doesn't  get very far. It spiouls, it shoots  its head above the giound, but- for  lack of suitable nourishment it dies  away. The roots howevct, remain  ?nd sprout into life again the follow  ing spiing.  An automobile club in order to be  effective, is a business institution,  and it is gratifying to know that these  ���������business institutions aie becoming  more in the majority, and less in the  minority. The purely social club for  automobile owners is being supplanted by the service organization. The  social clubs have become merely in  stitutions for eating, golfing, and  gossiping, the real" business of doing  things being left. to the automobile  club.  The.-great trouble with the automobile club today is the lack-of in  dhidual interest. A club is formed,  a president, a secretary and a board  of directors are elected. In most  cases these men are chosen because  of their ability and_ popularity in their  community, but an automobile club  that confines its work to the election  of officers; upon whose shoulders is  thrust the entire work of the club, is  not likely to get very far. The aver-  ag"e automobile owner in joining a  motor club is likely to look at the  fee he pays as more or less of a charity contribution,' rather than as an  'open Sesame" to a work that ' will  enable him and every other motor  car owner in his commuity to get $5  worth of value out of his motor car,  where he did not get one before.  ���������The secret of success that has attended our great railway transportation system today, lies in the care  that has been exercised in the construction of suitable road beds. The  motor car without a suitable road to  travel over, is merely a thing of beauty, that has very little joy in it.  The problem of good roads is one  thai'must conic from the community  itself. A highway plan that has for  its object the completion of a system  of roads over any considerable district at one time.will fail, but a highway plan that builds up roads within  the communities themselves, roads  for which the communities are responsible, and in which they have a  local and financial interest is a highway that will succeed.  Every member of a community has  a deep interest in good roads-. * In  fact, every member has a financial interest, but it was left to the motorist  to discover that the good road, was an  absolute essential to a community's  future existence. . The motorists,  however, working individually, cannot get very far, but working collectively he can talk long enough and  loud enough to make himself heard.  Going further one or two communities in different parts of a province,  can bring very ineffective presssure  to bear towards securing good roads,  but a hundred or two hundred communities, working in concert through  the various automobile clubs, can  start something that will have a  grand" finish.  When wc consider that in the Canadian West at the present time there  ;<ir over fifty million dollars invested  in motor cars, ihe item of motor car  insurance becomes a considerable  one, and by having this insurance  handled in the cheapest possible manner a great saving can be effected. A  number of years ago in Southern California the directors of one of the  motor clubs decided to give the members the benefit of reduced insurance  cott and an inter insurance exchange  was established as a department in  which club members: might insure  their cars at cost, thus effecting a  great saving over the rates of the  board companies.  To The  Crown Prince  The Crown Prince wrote to the  burgomaster of Berlin after he had  reviewed some Berlin troops���������' "With  such troops we can fetch the devil  from hell.".

The pure bred bulls are bought in  at sales and already this year there  have been 90 sold to_farmers.on easy  terms. The number supplied up to  ditc is nearly double the number ap������  plied for last year af the same time,  ai d as maf?y as altogether last year.  For  the  last  year  the   Live   Stock  department has paid considerable attention  lo supplying dairy cows, and  this, year  a' number will  be supplied      <  to creamery districts.  A greater effort will be made to  prevent the home bred cows from being exported .to eastern provinces or  across the border. In previous years  the department has been hampered , -  by the lack of funds for the supplying of animals, and many applica* "v,^,._,  lions have had to be refused. With  the increased appropriation thi3 year  it is-hoped lo supply every one wanting" either   dairy   cows   or   bulls  The department feels that buying  the animals of Saskatchewan- breeders and selling them out on easy  terms to the Saskatchewan farmer is  serving two purposes. It provides a  market for the one and ' an easy  means of acquiring or increasing , a  live stock holding for the other. The  males are usually of the Shorthorn  or other beef breeds, as there are  very few farmers ..who really go in ;  "foi breeding the dairy cattle. When  dairy cattle are required the farmer  usually buys what cows he needs, but ' ,  meeds for" beef cattle. However, .  \������ith the .increased allowance of the  department, it is expected that it will  be possible to retain more of the  biceding females.  Up to $750 worth is being supplied ���������  on payment of one-third cash, the  balance being payable in December  of 1918 and "1919, with interest at 6  1 er cent. Pure bred bulls are sold  on terms of one-half or one-quarter,  according to their,.value.  United States' "Sham" Army  Germany's Opinion of the Forces ol  Uncle Sam  In 1914 Germany* ridiculed tha  British army as "contemptible." Today it looks as if the German would  ���������have to call it the "unconquerable."  When the war began, Von Kluck told  his imperial master, "We shall invite you to the Tueilleries six weeks  from today;" that is when the hordes  went  up   against   Liege.  Events seem to" be shaping for the  final run of the enemy from France.  The famous Hindenburg said of Russia, "We will crumple it up like -  soft rye bread at our"leisure." The  leisure is likely to last for some  time. Now, that the United Stated  have decided to train an army for  the trenches in Europe, it is well to  place on record what the Germans  expert thinks  of the prospect:  "Not a mother in Germany will  put the American soldier even *to so  mean a usage as a bogey with which  to frighten her naughty children.  Wc are practically certain, as all  Germans are, that since the days of  that wretched piece of sham fighting known as the Spanish war, when  the Anierican mountain brought  forth such a" riduculous mouse, tho  United States army, though it may  have .assumed some of the external  characteristics of the: present day,  has undergone practically no change  for the better. Its spirit, which is  purely and blatantly mercenary, is  the same, and this will be proved  when the time comes���������if it ever  does���������when the Yankee hosts come  again forth to meet the enemy."

The conference w;as  held under the presidency of the minister of the interior and all problems  connected with the matttr of public  feeding were  thoroughly discussed,  The conferees formulated regulations for the crop year of 1917-1918  and considered all possibilities of  food distribution.

" But  then,  he  doesn't  know   why   I   want     to     find  l.or!''    There   was  a   kind   ol     cynical  honesty  about   her   which   would   noi'dirlv   while  curl  allow   her   to   conceal     fiom     herself I windows.    Each  and   mother,   and   perhaps,    after  all,  she   could  not   have   devised  a   bottci  scheme  of  vengeance   or    one     more  .s.uisfaciory- to herself than to punish  them  thiough  their only child.

She   could    iievei  have  made their happiness less  complete.    But to give their child a loveless  existence,  to  make sure that  little   Marjory  should  live a life elcvoid  of  love,  this   would   surely  he     sufficient   to hurt  those  two  even  in   thai  other life to which they had gone together.

So  her   wild and  wicked     thoughts     ran  on, and they did not come to an  end  until  the train  slowed into  Waterloo,  when   she al  once hailed  a cab -and  bade  the  driver drive  to  the. address  borhood. woi c an air of depression  and shabby gentiliiy which made  Leslie shudder.   -  The house before which she stood  was perhaps one ol the most forlorn  in ' the whole, strecl.

When  Leslie rang the bottom bell of three,  no answer was for a time vouchsafed, but after a few minutes a door  opened violently in the area, -and a  woman with a frowsy head, one hand  holding her loose bodice together,  the othei grasping a diseased-looking  broom,  peered  up  ai   the  visitor.

Sonow had  c.uen like a eankcr-inlo hri he.ut, ii  Kiel 'eft no ennobling, no strengthening effeci upon her, il had left her  hard, cold," and loveless. She had not  know n how to walk thiough her vale  ol misciy, using il as a well. She  hael fought her way through il. re-  son ling every step ol that vvcaiy  way.  "I was a happy woman until Raymond .dese rted me for May," she le-  ,fleeted. "If she had nol come to  spoil my jov 1 should have been a  happy wife, ,i happy mother. And  yet she had the audacity, ihe-audaci-  ty to ask me'to take care of 'their  child, Raymond's anel hers! To take  care- of her!" Again her low, mirth  less; laughter rang tlirough tlie ferriage.

"So I his is the wonderful Marjory!"  she said, opening the locket and look-1  . ing at  the pitcurcd face within, whilst  she   still   smiled   an   evil   smile,   "lliisj  is Marjory,   whose   future   lies   in   my  hands.       1   wonder   what   her  picture  will .be���������in   my   hands."     And   again  she laughed.  The   face   that   looked   hack   at   her  was  very  fair,  very-  sweet���������  the  face  of a   little  child,   whose  brown     eyes  were   clear  and   serene, v whose   deli-  cutely-eurved   lijis   smiled     a     hanpy  fSiuile.     About   her   bend   clustered    a  mass  of  bright  curly  hair,    and     her  coloring was dainty as the coloring of  a  wilel  rose  in  June;  and  lo any one  but this bitter woman with the frozen  heart the child's loveliness must  have  made an instant appeal.
