Bill had opened a store in  the town, which, at that time, was  just'a. collection of rabbit hutches,  wiih the boss hutch the railroad station.-  The little hamlet had doubled itself seven times since then, ' and  Bill's and Dan's bank account along  with it. For -the last few years, however, there, had been no sign of a further '-'re-double," and, as it happened,  that was one reason why Dan had  driven in lo sec Bill that evning. He  wanted to ask him a question.  Now Dan anel Bill were good  friends still, and had a mighty solid  respect for each other. But you  know what business is, either lhat of  fanning or running a country store.  It keeps a man's nose right down to  the grindstone,, if he is going to  amount lo anything, or- stay amounted. Besides which, it begets all kinds  of separate ''interests" and some pi  Bill's, and Dan's interests could not  have been harnessed up together. For  they pulled in different directions  sometimes aud would have made a  poor team. Still, as I say, they .were  good friends, and Dan, having put a  couple of fine bays in the stable, was  not sorry, to sec the cheery glow of  ' Bill's  stove,  this  bitter  cold  evening.  "Say, Bill, says Dan, after he had  got himself sorted out comfortably  in Bill's best chair. " 's this berg got  the dry rot." Dan was never one  to beat about the bush much.

American  Seamen   Are  British  Vice-Admiral Sims, commander of  the allied fleet of submarine chasers  off the Irish coast, aud the first time  an American naval officer has bad  complete control of part of the British fleet, marks an epoch in history.  What a real testimonial this is to the  efficiency of "Vice-Admiral Sims may  be seen from the following answer a  high British naval officer gave to the  question: "What docs the British  navv think of the American destroyer  flotilla?" "You tell your people that  we cannot speak too highly of the  American officers and men now working off the Irish coast," the Englishman replied. "They have not only  reached our expectations, they hav������  surprised us. Every day brings more  proof of their careful and thorough  training and'their ability to, handle'  different tasks. It is very gratifying  to us that they have hitched so well  with our men."  The credit of this is due as much  to Vice-Admiral Sim's effort as fertile excellence of the American seamen, and the British arc showing that  thev recognize the fact by giving the  Anierican command of their ships m  their waters.

F. Bovvers, an eminent  health authority, writing in the American  Magazine says:  "It is conceded, even by conservatives, that between sixty and seventy  thousand persons die annually in the  U.S. from the effects of alcohol. In  other words, eight and four-tenths  per cent, of the entire number of  deaths are .due to this dangerous protoplasmic poison���������this degenerator  of brain and tissue cells. To be exact, B. Donnell Phelps, who is recognized as one of the most careful  anel conservative of statisticians and  whose work, 'Mortality of Alcohol,'  is used as a text book in many of  our higher educational institutions,  claims that sixty-five thousand, eight  hundred and ninety-seven deaths per  year are directly due to the use of  alcoholic liquors. This estimate signifies one adult death every eight  minutes, or in other words, one man  in every seven and one-half who die  In  the  U.S., dies  because  of drink.  "The claim is made also, that of  one thousand deaths among drinkers,  four hundred and forty or nearly one  half are due directly and indirectly to  alcohol. Applying these figures to  the continental U.S., more than six  hundred and eighty thousand deaths  a year (both directly and indirectly)  can be charged to the killing power  of this poison. This is exclusive of  the mortality in our poscsssions,  which will bring the total up to seven hundred and twenty-five thousand  per year, which means that alcohol  is bludgeoning our people out of existence a,t the rate of two thousand  per dav.  "Professor Halmel, of Germany,  says: 'Among Bavarians, the greatest  beer-drinking people in the world,  three hundred out of every one thousand babies born arc born dead. Each  year sixty-nine thousand infants die  before they-are twelve months old.  Norwegian mothers had as many  dead born babies as Bavarian mothers until they were taught not to  drink alcoholic liquors. Now they  lose but eighty or ninety out of one  thousand babies.'  "If we concede further that alcohol is responsible as the chief factor  in many cases of Bright's Disease,  Tuberculosis, Heart Disease, Pneumonia, Hardening of the Arteries,  Degeneration of the Liver and Pancreas, Apoplexy, suicide, accidental  injury, chronic Gout and Rheumatism, Dementia, Delirium Tremens  and alcoholic insanities, inability to  withstand surgical operations, increased infant mortality from decreased powers of lactation in nursing mothers, Gastritis and Epilepsy,  it might almost seem as though we  have underestimated rather than overestimated alcoholic mortality."���������H.  fvrnott, M.B., M.C.P.S.  The Preacher Spy  Bavarian Missionary in India Arrested as a Spy  A clever but most unscrupulous  spy has just been run to earth in Lahore, India. Of Bavarian birth, he  was allowed to remain in India after  the order of the Viceroy banishing  German missionaries from the country had been passed, on the ground  of his good record, English wife and  the bonds of a silk merchant of well-  known repute.  Unable to carry on his mission he  obtained permission to travel  throughout India as a supply to mission stations somewhat depleted of  preachers, owing to the demands of  the war for chaplains and medical  assistants.  The Bavarian  preacher was generally  well   received.    At  one   station,  however, the detective who, unknown  to the missionary, followed him,  observed present at the afternoon  service  he  held in  one small    place    a  group    of    men  who were quite unknown to the locality. They had been  in    the    vicinity of the    mission  for  days, apparently awaiting the arrival  of the preacher. The detective, at the  conclusion  of the  service,   shadowed  the strangers, and traced them    to a  .disused mosque.  He. at once rode into   town,   procured    sufficient    force,  and in  due time   had  the  place    surrounded, and the occupants captured.  At  first     they     threatened   to     use  guns,  but     were     overpowered,     and  when the detective was directing affairs he observed that one of the men  was over-turbanncd.    He tore it from  his   head   and  there,    standing    unabashed, was the preacher whose text  that  afternoon  was    "The    way    of  transgressor is hard."  At the time the report of his capture had been published the authorities had not decided what should  be  done  with  the preacher spy,   the  "The Enemy" Obliges With a Folk  Song and Chorus and Surprises T. Atkins  It seems that the social amenities  are not wholly lacking even at the  ft out. A writer in the London Saturday Review tells us of a concert that  he attended just behind the firing  line:  To myr surprise I see seated on one  side of the hut at the far end of the  loom eight German non-commissioned officers, all smoking (again mostly Woodbines) and all evidently enjoying the musical efforts of our gallant Tommies. These Germans were  very fine men. Two were sergeant-  majors, and had most intelligent and  interesting faces. And there, a studi  ous-looking, rather delicate fellow  was, I found, science master at some  German school. He had a guitar,  which he played later with great effect.  The concert went on; lugubrious  songs, all without accompaniment,  with verses that ran into double*_fig-  ures. "Don't Go Down the Mine,  Daddy," and songs of the "Little  Irish Rose" and "Shamrock" type  were the most popular; several again  of the "Scotch Whisky" variety, and  then the meeting is called to order  by the chairman, who announces:  '"Ihe enemy will oblige with a folk  song���������the best of order and a bit of  encouragement, please."  "The enemy," remove their caps,  come to Ihe front, bowing to the colonel as they pass, and sing a part-  song, conducted by one of the ser-  gcant-majois, and accompanied by  the delicate-looking man on his guitar. It is music, real music, the performers���������all eight of them���������obviously enjoying it. One or two have really good voices, and there is not a  false note Tommy looked on in  amazement. He seemed surprised  that these strange people could sing  in such a difficult language and certainly surprised at the very high  musical standard. The enemy is  heartily applauded,- and returns  quickly to his seat and his Woodbines, again bowing to the colonel en  route.  Then the adjutant tells stories,  chiefly concerned with the troubles  of young officers and raw recruits,  which shake the audience with laughter. He is followed by the colonel,  who stands up, all six feet of him,  perfectly "turned out," and recites in  most racy manner "The Gee Bung  Polo Club." The applause was intense, and this although there were  probably not half a dozen men in the  hut who could tell him anything  about the game of polo! Still, as I  have said,  he is  a  good colonel.  And now the chairman announces  the last two items on the program.  "Best of order, please, while the enemy gives 'The Watch on the  Rhine'���������and yrou can ease yourselves  afterwaids by singing 'Rule Britannia.' " So "Die Wacht am Rhcin" is  most feebly tendered by the enemy,  and the last notes have hardly died  away when Thomas Atkins lifts the  loof off with that paean of liberty  which (so the verse tells us) was  caught from the lips of "Guardian  Angels." Then "God Save the King,"  and the men disperse, many of them  singing as  they  go  out.  "God Punish England"  Germans Pour Out Their Wrath on  the Occasion of the Bismarck Centenary  The Bismarck centenary was celebrated in'Lille, still in the hands of  tlie Germans, with unwonted enthusiasm. The news of the steady  advance of the British to positions  that were held to be unassailable,  caused the Germans, happily ensconced in that city, to pour out  their wrath over the series of de  feats in maledictions upon the English. A special "issue of a local paper, published by the Germans, was  turned into a vehicle of indecent  abuse of the English army, English  officers, soldiers, and English women.  Only one article could be reproduced in any English-printed newspaper, extracts from which (it was  addressed to  Germans)  we quote:  You mothers, engrave this in the  heart of the babe at your breast!  You thousands of teachers to whom  millions of German children look up  with eyes and hearts, teach Hate,  unquenchable Hate! You homes of  German learning, pile up the fuel on  this fire.  Tell the nation that this hate is  not unGerman, that it is not poison  for our people. Write in letters of  fire the name of our bitterest enemy.  You guardians of the truth feed this  sacred hate!

Belgian Deportees  Forced To Eat Rats  Eyewitnesses in Germany Say Hundreds Have Died of Starvation  The Belgian government has received a number of letters written in  Germany by eyewitnesses, describing  the terrible fate of the Belgian de  portees in various German camps,  says the London Globe. The following are some extracts.   -  "February 25���������Here the fate of the  Belgian civilians is awful. The Germans are leaving them, to die on a  starvation.diet. They are nothing but  skin and bone. Yesterday thirteen  bodies were in the mortuary. This  morning there were fourteen, and that  of a total of 3,000 to 4,000 prisoners.  "If we arc caught in the act of  handing these unhappy people some  soup or other food we,are punished  with five days' jail. Neutrals never  come  to  see  us.  "March 2���������The situation becomes  unbearable. The unhappy civilians  die by scores. The total of deaths for  yesterday and today in this camp  alone is seventeen.

"The deportees are no longer able'  to walk without help. The Belgian  civilians are s.tarving. They die at the  rate of three a  day.  "In another camp the deportees  have devoured live rats.

"Aside from the companionship of  dogs, which has been such a boon to  the men in the trenches, many of  them have proved such excellent carriers of messages and aides in hauling provisions about the trenches  that their work is absolutely indispensable.

An Article by Captain von Salzman  in the Berlin Vossische  Zeitung  . Let nobody be deceived by the  "events of the day. Let people regard  everything in a large frame, and then  they will not lose perspective and  they will feel no occasion for fear.  Hindenburg's plans are unknown to  us just as they are unknown to our  enemies. He holds the decisive factor in his hands, and he will know  how to use it when the time comes,  in the old style of Moltke. As is  known, waiting calls for strong nerves. Our sup. erne commander has  these nerves, as ~we know, and in that  fact- we can place our blind confi  dence.  The English spirit of organization  has been the main factor in promoting the extraordinary construction of  the system of roads behind the  Anglo-French front, and in completing the system in a fashion which  we are compelled to "admire. From  the reports received from abroad we  see that only the brilliantly constructed system of roads, canals, and  especially of railways and light railways has made possible the rapid  moving about of the masses of artillery that are absolutely necessary for  the attack.  In this matter our enemies are in  a certain sense superior to us, thanks  _to the American support wdiich is  now publicly advertised by Lloyd  George, but which has really"been  given since the. beginning of the war.  This manner of. warfare lacks all  that is intellectual. It is the .mechanical solution of a mechanical- question. The present Anglo-French attack does not show a single new factor. It is always the same old picture���������increased effectiveness of artillery, mechanical smashing down  of the opponent, and, finally, advance  into the lines that have been flattened  out.  As long as the material superiority  of the enemy lasts, the Hindenburg  strategy of voluntary evacuation is  the only possibility as a,passive reply. In view of all this can any living  German still retain the smallest doubt  about the justification of our submarine warfare? Who will have the  moral courage to let thevtransport of  material from America to Europe  proceed unpunished and unhindered?

Learned Something  of  the    Factory  Troubles From Tom Brooks  A correspondent of a London journal, writing from Lancaster recently,  says:  Could our gallant fighting men see  what the king and queen saw today  their hearts would be filled with a  great joy. The royal.tour has revealed a national organization ' for the  production of shells that was a revo-  lation even to'officers of the ministry  of munitions. From .Manchester munitions office alone 3,000 new or converted factories have been _ for  months turning out millions of shells  of all sizes, while the output inci eases  every day.  The- royal visitors today, among  many other activities, visited works  built on what not long ago was agricultural ground. They have seen  shell making from the breaking of  steel billets to filling with explosives  and maiketing with the military formula indicating the guns for which  they are intended. Aheady they  have allowed it to be known that the  magnificent welcome of loyal Manchester has been a wonderful "delight  and encouragement to  them.  At the enormous Wcslinghouse  works it had been said that trouble  would cause a stoppage of shell production. The king, by a fewv tactful  questions, elicited facts" that place  these tempoiary labo'r difficulties in  a far more,favorable light.  "Tom Brooks, Your Majesty, one  of our oldest and most valued workmen," was one introduction made.  The king asked Tom for his view of  recent difficulties. Tom proudly  opened with: "We are one of* the  loyalist firms in England, sir, and we  were the last to go on strike and the  first to resume work."  Then he offered the explanation  that applies tp many hundreds of  shops. They wished, he said, to  make a protest that wpuld compel attention, and they knew that a stoppage would be the quickest and most  emphatic method of doing it. Having  made the protest they recotfimenced  work, and will work all the harder to  make up the total to normal quantities.  The king gripped honest, plain-  speaking Tom by the hand, and told  him how glad he was they had returned to" work, and how earenstly  he hoped they would be able to continue production, without further  friction.  From personal investigation, I am"  convinced, that "the king's desire will  be realized, and that the settlement  of disputes will be effected without  stopping work, or deferred until after the war.  After leaving Manchester, the party journeyed to Lancaster, and later  proceeded to the National Projectile  factory, where they inspected miles  oi bays filled with smiling women.  Wonderful time has been ��������� kept  throughout this strenuous tour, although today, for the first time, the  king was "clocked" ten minutes late  at the Wcstinghouse works. His  majesty performed the operation of  "clocking in" as if used to it all his  life, and received' the time ticket  numbered 10,001 in return for pushing a button.  Britain's Desire   T  Always for Peace  Viscount Grey  Outlines the   Events  Which Led to the War  Those events which led up to the  present world struggle were outlined in a letter from Viscount Grey  to the editor of the Christian Science  Monitor, published in Boston. This  letter, a copy of wdiich was obtained  by the United Press, follows in part:  "The origin of our Entente, first  with France and then with Russia,  was a desire to avoid war and to put^  an end to our quarrels with those,  powers and to the embittered feelings on their side and ours, that had  so often brought us or seemed to  bring us to the brink of war. This  \yas our motive, and a policy pf encircling Germany, was not in our  thoughts.  -" "Wc wished to keep "pur-friends,  but also to keep the peace of Europe-  and in the European conference,, .in ,  London over the Balkan war we gave .  proof of this and came through  that  without reproach and indeed with thf*  credit of having worked for peace.    .-  _ "One of the tragedies of the situation  is   that  this   conference  showed-  clearly    that    there was  in   London  machinery and  personnel that, could  have    settled    honorably   and. fairly,  -every dispute,   such as  that of  1914, ,  if il had  been  permitted  to  try  and ;  been  trusted  again.      ,   '  "That this was  so was  due to  the ,  personalities  of   the  ambassadors    in  London   of  the  five  great   European -  powers,   including   of    course    Lick-  noivsky  and  Mensdorff,   the  German  and Austrian ambassadors.  "But in 1914 Germany thought the  time had come to take advantage of  the situation and to force the peace;  and  I  suppose  the  Piussian military-  men had decided that    the    time to",  strike successfully had come      .      ""  "As far as I can see  the Germans -  believe that if England had promised.  Germany to remain neutral in a" Eu1   -  ropean    war,     France     and     Russia-  would  Jiave   'given    in  to  Germany^'  without fighting, England would have -  been    isolated    and    discredited  and  German domination would have been ���������~  secured without war. _ - /  "And   the'Germans  hold      us   - to '  blame   for   the   war  because  we   did"  not act according to their idea.

Kernesky  New Minister   of  War  the  Man  o!  the Hour in Russia  It would not be wide of the mark  to   say    that    Alexander    Kernesky,  Minister of War, is the  man of  the  hour in^Russia.    A study  of his   career, however, would disappoint those ���������  who  look  for  a   dictator.     Kerensky  is not the stuff of which dictators are  made.    He has always  been for  the  under  dog.     His   clients   at   the   bar.  were the  poor  and persecuted.      He  fought for the ""Jews, which is  not a  popular-thing to do in Russia. Workmen  and   peasants   thrown   to  prison  for   "unlawful   assembling"   found   in  him a fearless and eloquent advocate.  When   thirty   years  of   age   (he   is  now thirty-five)  Alexander Kerensky  represented    the    workmen    of    the  River Lena  .strike,    in  which  some  sixty   workmen    were shot down by  the police.  Later  he assisted the  defence of   Mendel   Beiliss,.."charged   at  Kiev with    ritual    murder, and    was  one_ of a group of lawyers sentenced  to  imprisonment  for protesting  in  a  "round robin" against the methods of  the prosecution.    But    the    Imperial"  government dared not deprive    those"  courageous  protestants -of  their    liberty.    The   following year   Kerensky  was elected to  the Duma  to    represent _Socialist Labor..:He distinguished himself by exposing corruption in  the government, ^.aiid    after    Russia  entered the war assailed pro-German  influences-  and     denounce*d    grafting  officials  in  and   out  of   the    military  service.

'    He   concluded-that  his  /allegiance was with the United States  and  as  he  had  in, the-course  of  the  war been in the confidence of accred-  t   ited   German   agents   in "the    United  States   arid   Cuba   and     had    learned  many things known only to accredited   German   agents   he   decided   that  his duty was to communicate what he  knew  to  Washington.    According  to  the New York World, which publishes   the  man's   stbry  but  provokingly  conceals his name, he Is a very well-  known citizen indeed, whose word'is  to be relied upon.    Some of his  secrets, which have' been sent to Wash-  - ington, are not published in,the news-  ., paper "for obvious  patriotic    reasons,  ."  but" what" he-says about the submar-  * ��������� iries- is  interesting^ enough.  , * - Herr Schmidt, as he is called, says  ,-that   Germany   is   relying   upon     her  submarines   alone To   win   the    war.  She  is   building  them'more    rapidly  -.than_evcr  before.     They  are bigger,  , 'faster,  and  altogether  more destructive  than  the  models" used  earlier in  the war.   In fact, it appears thai sub-  marines^have  been improved in .jthe  past thirty-months  to almost the ex-  ,'tent  that airplanes   have  been  devel-  -J oped.    At 'the present time Germany  is   building  submarines  26  per  cent,  larger   than   any  we   have  yet   heard  of, and we are informed that some of  .  them" were  ready  to   take  the- water  " on June 1.   On May 15, Herr Schmidt  '   says,  Germany was  turning out  sub-  7-marines'at the  rate  of four .a week,  *-f,and  by  the  middle  of    the , present  -month "expects   to   double    this   out-  ���������" put. ".Just now she has 200 of these  sea  wolves- at  work,  and perhaps  as  "'-many as 500 under construction.    In  another year it is intended that there  shall be 1,000 of them in commission.  ; Incidentally it takes just eight weeks  --to  finish  a  submarine  after her  keel  has-been laid.-  -All the ships that are building in  -"--Germany today are submarines. Con-  . -at'ruction upon other and larger ships  has been discontinued for a year, or  since the Battle of'Jutland proved to  the kaiser that he had no chance of  destroying the British fleet. The German navy has been idle ever since  This navy is said to have a personnel of 150,000 men, and from this  number the submarine crews are re-  recruited. Naturally the job of working on a submarine is not eagerly  sought after, and it is no simple mat-  tei to train proper crews. However,  of late there has been an improvement in this respect since each submarine is-fitted with two crews.. A  U-boat goes on a cruise, and when  she returns her .crew goes ashore and  enjoys life while the second crew  takes a turn. By this means the dislike of sailors for working on the undersea . boats is partly overcome.  There is also the compensation that  they are treated as heroes in Germany.  -- -Herr Schmidt informs us the submarines love whitecaps and ' rough  weather, though the contrary had  been believed. He says that when the  sea is high it is very difficult to pick  out the wake of the periscope of a  sub, because at a short distance il  looks exactly like the crest of a wave.  He reports that among other improvements made recently in the submarine is a periscope that is almost  ' invisible. The new device consists of  two mirrors, put together like a "V"  lying on its side, the wide part in  front. These skim the waves and  converge the image upon the low  periscope's lens, which shoots light  down the tube to the receiving apparatus below. Microphones are also  used, and these apprise the commander-of the submarine of the. approach  of a vessel and the direction of the  course. With this . information at  hand -the submarine \is able to get  very close to her victim without  showing her periscope.  We arc told also that submarines  " invariably hunt in fours, travelling  in a diamond-shaped formation, one  in front, one on either flank and one  in the rear. Eight miles separates  the boats. The leader carries the extra supplies and acts as a scout. She  sights a vessel, reports its speed and  direction by wireless, and then submerges. The flanking submarines  then manoeuvre so that they can arrive on either side of the vessel. It  is their business.to discharge the torpedoes. The rear boat keeps the  rear assassins informed of the progress of the vessel to be attacked,  and submerges at the last, moment.  The rear boat also' carries extra  "crews for the fighting pair. Herr  Schmidt says that the real submarine bases are not ore land, but at; the  bottom of the sea.. Here lie. the  "mother ships" on the ocean bed at  a depth-of fifty or sixty feet, and  here come the submarines to get new  supplies, and sometimes to get fresh  crews if j their trips have been unusually long! The converted German  says that a favorite device of a submarine is to tow about a mile behind  her a dummy periscope to which is  attached a mine. This ruse is resorted to when warships are in the vicinity, and when it is hopejd to lure  one of them into ramming the supposed enemy. "  Germany's.

When   the    German  army  entered   Louvain,     the     priests     and  preachers prayed; the-nuns wept; the  young girls besought brutal men for  mercy; but all to no avail. You cannot argue with a drunken man,    nor  preach  lo   the lion,    nor  peisuade  a  murderous    brigand,    who    is' determined-to loot every house and store  and factory. The simple fact is  that,  after     Germany     captured   Austria's  coal provinces,    and  the    iron  provinces  of France  in  1870,   she discovered that war was her best national  industry, paying in a single summer's  looting   expedition'from   a  thousand  per cent,   to  ten   thousand  per  cent.,  where  an  iron  foundry    or a    steel  plant   paid   her   only   ten"   per   cent.

We   must  win   this   war.  You stay the North Sea with a dyke,  the  lion   with  a   hot  iron,   and     soldiers drunk with greed, lust and avarice for other men's houses and territory, by bayonets  and bullets.

The- stand of merchantable  timber is estimated by the ��������� Chief  Forester of the province at over 400  billion feet. It is claimed that the B.

British Columbia contains more than  half the standing commercial timber  in Canada, and fifty pre cent, of this  is on Vancouver Island.

One of the  stories, which I believe is the correct  one, is that in ancient times the Jap  Conscription and  Prohibition Eulogised  The Drink  Trade  and  the  Destruction of Food  Conscription in Canada may be  necessary to win the war, but any  sufficient win-the-war campaign that  leaves, out the immediate war-time  prohibition of the manufacture, importation and sale of intoxicating liquors fails to adequately meet the situation.  All thoughful, loyal Canadians are  heart-sore and sick as they think of  the dcstruction.^causcd by this traffic that continues a's a "pestilence that  walketh in darkness,, and a "destruction that wasteth at noonday."  The food situation throughout the  world is growing serious. Hundreds of millions of pounds of foodstuffs are worse than wasted at a  time when not a pound should be  wasted, nor an acre uncultivated.  Lloyd George said: "Our food stocks  are alarmingly low."  The drink trade lives on the destruction of food. Alcoholic liquors  cannot be made without destroying  food. They absorb water and create  thirst; so that the trade exists by  consuming food and water, the two  vital needs of life. And the dire results of this waste of food in the  drink produced and consumed are  simply alarming. Captain Barttelot,  of the British navy, begged' for some  leading statesman to speak plainly  and pleaded forcibly for "the total  prohibition of spirits as the most effective act that could be taken to win  the war," adding: "any measure less  drastic will not be a cure; it will  keep alive the craving which has  been growing after six month's indul  gence, and  some  men  will   endeavor  "*-' '���������* ""i "a u "."

It was first  applied to a ship's name about two  thousand years ago, when the Empress Jingo sent an expedition to Ko-  lea. She added the word to the name  of the ship that transported the  troops to Korea. Ever since then  "maru" has been part of the name of  every steamship or sailing vessel. It  is never used with the name of a warship."  Nothing Killed on  Count's Estate  Creatures Must Die of Old Age and  Nothing Grown There Can  Be Eaten  Vorwaerts publishes a weird story  regarding the estate of Field Marshal  Count Haeslcr, who was the Crown  Prince's Chief of Staff during the futile assault on Verdun. The Field  Marshal's nephew reports that nothing may be killed on the Count's  great estate. Cows, pigs, hens, fish,  die of old age. All offers to lease  the shooting of rabbits', hares or  pheasants, or fishing, is refused. One  of the Count's tenants who 'wanted  to sell 300 sheep owing to .old age  was immediately dismissed. Of twenty tons of fruit collected in the autumn of 1914, half was allowed to  rot, as the Count refused to allow  anything grown on the estate to be  eaten. The Butchers' Gazette asserts  these conditions still prevail in the.  third  war  year.  Canada's service is seriously hampered unless the evil traffic is put out  of the way.���������J.H.  Hazlewood.  twentieth inch in diameter were  found in February and April (1916)  abundantly on the open snowfieids of  Mount Rainier, at an elevation of  2,750 to 5,600 feet above sea level.  They also occurred on" the snow on  the mountain-slope-protected by a  dense forest of fir and hemlock.  These worms have not thus far  been found on solid ice nor on the  glaciers, though they occur on the  snow below the ice front and outside of the laterial moraines of the  Nisqually Glacier. The snow on  which they were found is not permanent through the entire season, but  melts with the coming of summer,  and it there fore appears that a part  of their life must be spent on or in  the ground.  ��������� Nothing very definite is known  concerning the food of snow worms.  Professor Flett reports that the snow  over wdiich these enchytraeids crawd  usually has a red color, due to a  minute, unicellular plant, which, in  his opinion seivcs as food for the  worms.  In the same habitat with the snow  worms, the writer found numerous  species of insects, many of which  were probably carried there by air  currents or strong winds, belonging  to eight orders, and three species of  spiders.  Snow fleas or springtails sometimes occur in enormous numbers,  possibly-in billions, especially on the  snow below the glaciers, making it  gray or even black in-appearance over large areas.  Worms of another variety occur on  snowfieids which seldom thaw during  the summer, and they evidently pass  their entire existence, generation after generation, in the snow and ice.  There- are reasons for believing that  they may be found to live at an altitude as low as 6,000 feet. On the  glaciers these worms coil up so as  to appear as small spherical black  masses or dots on the snow or solid  ice, and it requires a considerable  exposure to sunshine -to warm them  up to the active stage.  The Cruel Hun  It in  What Britain Is Doing  Is  Fortunes for Saskatchewan Farmers  Reports from Prince Albert, Sask.,  state that many farmers in that district are just now selling their 1916  crops, and that quite a number of  them  wiil .receive   from    $20,000    to  An  American  Who  Says  Britain  Doing More Than Her  Share in the War  This "is the way Henry Clews, the  New York banker, sizes up the present   war  situation: ..���������'���������.  "For nearly three years Great Brit-  ain^ with" a population of' about  45,000,000, has been carrying the  brunt of the battle for freedom. Her  fleet has not only insured" us from invasion but has kept the seas open  and free for our froeign trade, the  loss of which would have been an incalculable injury to our ccomonic  welfare. She has further raised an  army of about 5,000,000 men, helped  finance her allies to the extent of  about $4,500,000,000 and aided in feeding the starving millions in Belgium,  Armenia and Serbia. She is certainly  doing more than her share and as we  have been the principal beneficaries,  it is but just that we"should_givc active   support  in  return."  Great Mineral Wealth  War As the Germans    Know  Palestine  The German version of what happened in Jaffa is that the town was  cxacuated for military reasons, presumably because the British were at acc0]  tacking Gaza and threatening to ad- a<;tic  vance up the coast. This caused the p"^,  migration northward of a great number of Jews who lost all or most of  their belongings because unable to  carry them, and who suffered from  "excesses." Quite so. Turning the  comparatively well-to-do Jewish population out of its homes in the midst  of a poverty-stricken and hostile native population, only too eager to indulge in plunder and even murder,  brought its inevitable consequences.  The, Jews were robbed of all they had  and butchered when they resisted.  This is war, as the Germans and their  allies make it. It is a comfort to  know that Jerusalem is not yet treated in this brutal fashion. Thousands  will be sentenced to death if it ever  is. -^        '  This   is  especially     cruel     as     the  Importance     of     Canada's     Mineral  Wealth But Little Understood  Canada's mineral wealth is not generally appreciated by residents in  other countries,"or even by Canadian  themselves who are not.in personal  iouch with the mining industry. Some  idea ot the importance of v-a'iiada's  mineral resources is gained from the  fact that more than 162,000 tons of  ore have been delivered in the present year.at the" smelter at Trail, B.  C, and' this represents only the activities  of one  small  mining section  $50,000 each for their crops.     They   ...  are realizing a much higher price m the Great West. Ihe ore dehver-  than if they had sold immediately af-|ies at Trail are averaging over 5,000  ter harvest. tons per week.  Europeans of all races and religions  assembled in Palestine, are of the  non-combatant description. Most of  them are old;"many of them are helpless women; all of them have pilgrimaged to the Holy Land for purely religious reasons. One clause in  any peace terms���������and a clause which  ought to appeal to the highly religious Russian people���������should be the  turning of the land of Christ over to  the care of the Christian nations.  Then the Jews, to whom Jerusalem  is Zion, will be free to return there,  settle there,, and once more make it  blossom as the rose Again, the hillsides of Palestine will be terraced for  the vine and the olive tree; again, the  Promised Land will flow with milk  and-honey.���������From the Montreal Star.  Origin of    Boy    Scouts    Movement  "  *"-"��������� J?ates From 1884  idea of training boys in Scouting dates from 1JJ84, when Sir Robert Baden-Powell applied it to recruits in his regiment and, in revised  form, from 1897 to young soldiers in  the 5th Dragoon Guards. He had  then found the good of developing  the man's character before putting  upon him the* routine training of  drill at that time considered necessary for a soldier.  The system was based on education  as opposed to instruction and was an  evolution of the ideas of Epictetus,  the code of the Knights, the Zulus  and Red Indians. The possibility of  putting responsibility onto the boys  and treating them seriously was  brought to the proof in Mafcking  with the corps of boys raised by  Lord Edward Cecil there in 1899,  which led Sir -Robert to go into it  further.  When he went back to England in  1902. he found his book- "Aids^ to  Scouting" being used in schools" for  teaching boys. As this had been  written for soldiers it was unsuitable  for boys and in 1908 Sir Robert rewrote it (after an experimental boys'  camp held in 1907). It was not then  intended to have a separate organization of Boy Scouts, but that the  Boys' Brigade, the Junior Y.M.C.A.,  the Church Lads' Brigade, and other  recognized boys' organizations would  utilize the idea.  The movement grew up of itself,  anel assumed such proportions that in  1910 Sir' Robert gave up the army  and took charge of it. The methods,  aims and organization of the movement undeiwcnt close examination by  the Privy Council in 1910, and a Royal Charter of incorporation was  granted to it. His Majesty the King  became its patron and His Royal  Highness the Prince of Wales became Chief Scout for Wales.  , The idea of the dress of the Scouti .  was taken from a sketch of Sir Robert's dress in Kashmir in 1897���������in  every detail. The fleur-de-lys badge  was that' which Sir Robert used for  Scouts in the 5th Dragoon Guards, it  was taken from the sign of the north ,  point of the compass, as shown 'on..  maps as a guide to their orientation.  Another brilliant page has' been  added to British naval annals and for  a second time it relates how a former Boy Scout has participated '<. and  proven his Scout training and devotion to duty in the face of heavy  odds. The "story of Midshipman  Gyle's bravery has been recorded in  many places but the news of connection with the Boy Scouts movement  comes to light now and. Boy Scouts  everywhere will feel with pride the  glory which has been added to their  work. Midshipman Gyles-has been  tluough the Dardanelles campaign  and was wounded at the landing of  the Australian forces at Gaba lepa.  Later Commander Evans of Antarctic fame, offered him a beith in the  Dover Patiol and it was on this duty  that the "Bioke" rammed the German destroyer. -Gyles met single-  handed a boarding party of Germans  and although severely wounded forced the Geimans to retire to their own  Tlie National Union of Teachers  accorded an impressive and enthusi-  leception to the ideals of the  Boy Scouts movement lasc month at  their conference in Manchester. The  chairman of the Education Committee at Chiswick said that after many  years' work . mongst teachers he  thought that Scoutmasters were  showing the way to schoolmasters in  the all important matter of character  training. In South Africa and other  overseas Dominions scouting is gaming ground with educationalists and  the French government, the Portuguese government and other foreign  countries arc investigating the systems employed by Boy Scouts wttha  view to encouraging the work ��������� in  their respective countries. In Russia the Czar himself gave the movement every encouragement but unfortunately Governor of Finland was  to say the least, not sympatctic with  Wasting  Needed  Grain  With flour climbing up to unprecedented prices, grain is still going into  distilleries and breweries for the  manufacture of intoxicating- liquors.  Why is it permitted? In the year  ending March, 1917, not less than  88,000,000 pounds of foodstuffs were  used in-manufacturing whiskey alone  in Canada. Only three distilleries  were engaged in making whiskey', all  the others being engaged in manufacturing spirits used for munitions.  Yet the total output increased, and  the consumption of grain ihcreased  by 4,000,000 pounds over the previous  year.���������r-Saskatpon Star.  the inhabitants nor ��������� had he ever  learned signalling.

a strange air of desolation. "'This

" Had" she any friends? Any relations?" Leslie asked. -"Was she -very

shrewd and kindly solicitor, looked
thoughfully at his visitor, and balanced a pen carefully upon two, fingers. ."From what 1 gather you have

''���I have very little to go upon; I
see that," Geoffrey Marstead answered. "But my., father's dying wish must
be caxried out. I shall leave no stone
unturned until I have tried my level
best to  do  what  he wished."
"You are convinced lhat he was not
delirious..--when he spoke? Vou are
sure he Was sane?"
"Absolutely Mire." There was a
certain terseness in the boy's utterance which commended hint lo the
lawyer. "During his illness my father W'as never delirious, and, as you
know, his mind was a very clear one;
he was not a' man lo lose sanity, or
to talk at random."
Mr. Dan'suierc's thoughtful gaze
fixed itself upon his client's face, noting the latent power of jaw and

his deep set blue eyes, the breadth of

"You are quite right about your

which had set many a troubled client

"Yes. She evidenly had-a claim ol
some kind upon him," .Mr. Dans-
mere put in when Geoffrey paused;
"but what was the claim? Who was
the lacly? And where is she? All
these points we have lo discover.
Amongst your father's papers you
have found no clue a�� to the identity
of this  Miss or .Mrs.   Donaldson?"
"Nothing bnl what 1 have already
mentioned. I found a very old letter
signed Delicia. and the miniature 1
brought up lo you today." With a
slight gesture he indicated a miniature lying on the table and for ihe
second time that morning Mr. Dans--
niere pickccM.t up and scrutinized it
closely, .ft represented a woman's
head and shoulders, and between the
white softness of her gown and the
satin whiteness of her neck tested a
gicat red ro-.e. I Jer brown eyes were
alight with smiles, there was a smile
upon her lips, and it seemed as if
the sunlight had caught the masses
of her hair and woven amongst them
a glory of gold. Under the painlirig
in .small golden lellers was the one
word "Delicia."
"Whoever she was she musr
been a very lovely woman,''
Dansmcrc said slowly, his glance lingering on the smiling face, until an
answering smile crept over his own.
"Was your father by any chance ever
engaged to her? If so, I wonder."
The lawyer pulled himself up with
a little cough, refraining just in time
from saying lhat he wondered Mr.
.Marstead had not married this beautiful woman, instead of the singula)-

"Maybe��� maybe," the lavvyrei answered absently, his glance wandering
baik to the- miniature he still held in

We left Hcadingly at 9 o'clock and  reached the college al 11 a.m. Each  child took a lunch' the same as for a  regular school day. Mr. Newton was  veiy nice and called a young lady  from his office who showed us about  his building, the domestic science  room, sewing room, textiles and  house keeping room. Then Air. Ilerner, I think that was his name, took  us over to the "chicken houses. He  look an active interest in the childicn  asking questions; etc. A pleasant  time was spent in the egg testing  room, each child tested some eggs.  Then ;\vc visited life incubator room,  one incubator was hatching. Children  were all interested in this. Then wc  ivent into a room where two men  were chy picking bioilcrs, then into  the loom where the fattening crates  were, then ,, to the pens where the  hens and laying hens were. One girl  saw a hen go into a nest and the nest  shutting. There were many young  chicks. The children, were delighted  with the large brooders where 300  chicks were kept. Mr. J-leruer told  them how they fed the 'chickens buttermilk, etc. In one pen were^somc  guinea pigs and everyone had a good  look. There was a pen of young  .ducks.    Sa,/- some tin keys and geese  After the visit to the' fowls wc  paid a visit to the dining room which  the college placed very kindly al our  disposal." They supplied us wi'h hot  tea which was much appieci,ited by-  all as the day was rather chilly. After  lunch avc were taken around the stock  by a Mr. Woods. Everyone took a  keen interest in the pigs. On<i old  sow with little ones was very, tame  and. genlle, the children walked in  the pen right beside her. Wc saw  Ihe pig cols and winter qua iters then  went lo the cattle barn where thcie  was some beautiful calves. We only  sow two ewes and'three lambs as all  the sheep were out hul these SdW  a few horses. The children weie delighted with the conservatory and  museum. The stuffed biiels and animals "aie so instructive to young  minds. Wc left on the 3 o'clock car  and I look my giils to the industrial  bureau for another hour to finish out  the day. I think most of the children  went home on the four o'clock Hcadingly cas but we came on the five,  leaching Hcadingly al si^c veiy tired  but satisfied thai the trip was not  only'enjoyable but" most instructive  I hope you can read this as il is rather a pooi sciawl.

SI E. HAMILTON  Secretary  G. H.SPROULE,  W. M  The big Liberal convention  at Winnipeg has decided to  "win the war with Laurier."  Brewster, King, Pattullo and  Wade are among the B. C. delegation���������three cabinet ministers  and their manager. "Pickings,  not principles," should be the  motto  of   the   Liberal    party.  These is  in this  an opening  "broad and glorious Dominion"  for a Canadian party. Borden  and his cabinet, with the exception of Cochrane, should be  conducting a young ladies' seminary or a dancing school; in a  European country Laurier  would long ago have received  the last rites of the church.  The Liberal convention next  Wednesday will kindly note  that Laurier has been endorsed  by Brewster King and Sloan.  If they nominate a candidate,  they endorse Laurier and Premier Brewster, and oppose  Canada and the Empire's participation in the war. They  have to choose between Canada  and the Quebec slackers.  It is almost definitely settled  that there will be an independent candidate  in the  field   to  contest     Similkameen    riding,  and a~ convention will  be  held  in   Keremeos   in   a   couple" of  ' weeks.   There are Liberals who  cannot support Brewster   and  his endorsement of Laurier, and  there   are   Conservatives   who  will not support Bowser.    The  people want statesmen, not machine-turned politicians.  Befohis next issue the Conservatives and Liberals will  have chosen candidates to contest Similkameen riding. It is  a matter of very little importance to the electors who the  candidates may be or which one  Will Win the War ?  Dispatches from Winnipeg  would indicate that the war is  near an end. A great drive is  to be successfully|carried*oiitby  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, leader,  Premier Brewster,  Hon. Dr. King,  Hon. Wm. Sloan,  M.- A, Macdonald, K. C, and  F. C. Wade, K. C.  The motto: "Brewster and  Laurier; for Quebec, for Liberalism and the Spoils."  That Waterloo may again be  the battlefield for the. decision  of the great Avar, as it. was when  it brought about tho downfall  of Napoleon, is believed by  many military experts. Tho  force which the United States  will be able to bring lo bear on  the western front it is believed  will duplicate the historical incident wherein Blucher's timely  arrival so aided Wellington's  army that the French wore defeated. This belief is supported  by the gradual and methodical  retreat of the Germans and the  location of the newllindenburg  line between Antwerp and Na-  raur, to which the Germans are  retiring. Waterloo is in the  advance of this line and its location and topograyhy are such  that if the issue is decided in  front of _ the supposed line,  Waterloo is tho logical, almost  inevitable, field for it.���������Ex.
