Dear old friend:  I have been expecting to hear  from you all this time as I have  not had a reply to the  last  one  I wrote you. Two days previous  to the date  my  Battalion  left  for France I had the misfortune  to fracture a  bone in my leg  and   in   consequence   attended  hospital and, convalescent home  for nearly eight weeks.

We have  had heavy  casualties and I am  almost a  stranger in.  my  old  platoon,  the  gaps having been  filled   with   fresh  drafts.    Our  work is very varied.   We repair  roads that have  been subjected  to heavy shell fire, build harroAv  gauge  tracks for   ammunition  carts, and build and consolidate  front line trenches and communication trenches. We also have  to string the wire in "no man's  land," which  is anything but a  healthy occupation.    Naturally,  most of "this work is done under  coVor of darkness, and all nightlong Fritz  sends  up  a   steady  stream of starshells, which illumine the intei'vening space  between     the    two    front    lines.

To the man - of means, Avho is  accustomed tp buy his liquors  by the bottle or case from the  wholesale store or retail shop  the .Prohibition Act means absolutely nothing, as he can still  order his supply from a neighboring province or the States,  just as easily as in the past, the  only difference being that he  Avill have to pay a higher cost,  on account of transportation  charges.  To the AA*oz'king man, who  is  accustomed to buy his liquor by  the   bott/e   or   glass;   the   Act  means, hoAvever,  something entirely different.    The ordinary  Avorking  man  is   not given an  opportunity  to   lay   by   money  sufficient   to   provide   for    his  sending  away for a case of liquor, hence he is under a handicap ' Avhich   does   not interfere  with the rich man. Then, again,  the working man's usual bever-  ege is beer, and on shipments of  this  class  the freight rates are  so high as to make the price almost prohibitive for him.  Again,   while   some  Avorking  men    are   fortunate    to    have  homes of their oavii, a great-majority    occupy    houses   jointly  Avith others. A large proportion  Avould   come   under the.term of  "lodgers."     Many    others   also  take  boarders  in order to help  out the family income.    All  of  this   class   Avould   find   that the  Prohibition Act was a distinct  barrier  to   their enjoying their  personal  right  to  partake of a  glass   of   beer   in    their    own  homes.  The Act provides that a  man  may import  liquor freely'  for use in his own pm*ate dAvel-  ling.     It so  defines  the   Avord  "dwelling," however, that householders   Avho   occupy   premises  jointly are not allowed the privilege of haA'ing liquor for   their  oavii private use.    The same  is  true  of lodgers personally, and  the families of those  who  keep  lodgers where more than three  goom in  a house.     As   far as  homes -where boarders are kept,  the Act is  explicit   in   statin"  Corp. T. C.

A reading of the Act will show  many similar features of class  legislation of so open a character as to lead the organized  bodies of labor, which have already considered the Prohibition Bill, to unanimously condemn the Act.

Train Divisions in Canada  Six Provincial or    District   Brigades  Likely' to be Organized  A proposal is under consideration  by the Minister of Militia to mobilize  and train in Canada two complete  infantry divisions wJiich would be  ready to leave for overseas practically  in condition to proceed at once to. the  front. Hitherto the organizing- and  training as divisions has been done in  England.  _ To carry out the scheme, six Provincial or district brigades are contemplated. / These would include a  Nova Scotia brigade, already almost  raised as a. Highland brigade under  Col. Borden, a brigade for New  Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.  a brigade from Quebec, two brigades  from Ontario, and a brigade from the  western Provinces.  Details of the proposal are now  being worked out.  It .is usually safe to say that when  a child is pale, sickly, peevish and  restless, the cause is worms. These  parasites range the stomach and intestines, causing serious disorders of  the digestion and preventing the infant from deriving sustenance from  food. Miller's Worm Powders, by  destroying the worms, corrects these  faults of the digestion and serves to  restore the organs to healthy action.  Only a Chip  As an evidence of the unconquerable spirit of our fleet. Mr. Hunger-  ford Pollen relates an incident concerning an officer of one of; the light  cruisers who was ' reported in the  official return as "severely wounded." Whitehall immediately received  a telegram respectfully but ardently  protesting against so misleading and  humiliating a description.  "I have only got a chip knocked out  of my shin and shall be ready for  duly in a very few days." The P.  M. Q. was promptly wired to for a  full description of this officer's in1  juries. It turned out that he had  the right leg fractured, and left tibia  chipped, a large piece of shell embedded in his groin, and seventeen  other cuts and wounds.  "Can you. accommodate myself and  family for summer board?"  "What's your politics?" inquired  Farmer Corntossel.  "Does that make any difference?"  "Yep. I'm not going to take another chance on havin' the whole  place stirred up with arguments day  an' night. .All the folks that board  here this summer has got to have the  same politics."���������Washington  Star.  Pig Clubs and Bank Deposits  American    Bankers Are    Helping to  Finance Hog Breeders  Bankers in many states are realizing the value of pig club work as a  means of improving rural conditions,  according to club agents of the United  States department of agriculture. Not  a few of the bankers have made it  possible for worthy club members to  secure pigs on their personal notes.  In this way a well-bred pig is secured  and the member can pay for it from  the proceeds of the pig as a meat animal or from the sale of offspring in  the case of a breeding animal., The  member enters into a business agreement with  the banker.  This apparent generosity on the  part of bankers is in many cases business acumen. A case in point is that  of a;Texas bank, whose president  placed 326 pigs among pig club members of his country. As a result of  the acquaintance made in' securing  and placing these spigs, many new  patrons were secure'd. These patrons  brought in more than $75,000 in individual deposits. This was profitable  business for the bank. The boys  whom he has helped to get started in  the hog business are now on their  feet financially and before many years  they will be making big shipments of  hogs to market each year. The money  received from the sale of hogs will  be expended in further developing  the country. Every merchant in the  county will profit, the banks will get  more deposits, and farmers will have  more money with which to develop  their farms."���������Breeders' Gazette.  War Socialism is Popular  Now that the old border city of  Carlisle in the Motherland has had a  taste of war socialism in respect of  restaurants and public-houses people  are making notes of the results. -\  summary of these may be.classed as  better lighting, better order, and better service. An afternoon tea is called,  "Government tea," a glass of spirits  a "Cabinet nip,," and a glass of Guin-  css as "Asquith XX."  i Model restaurants are now being  erected. The scheme so far is popular, and the fact that the majority of  the previous managers have been retained as such has assisted toward this  popularity.  "They say you can't square the circle."  "Well, you can do it after a fashion," said the mathematician, "just as  when you go out for a walk you circle  the square."  Reformed Russia  _ Sir Robert Walpole declared in a  vitriolic epigram that he could grow  patriots, like mushrooms, in a night.  Be that as it may, the Tsar's famous  vodka-edict made a country sober in  a day. The result is the substitution  of a nation of well cared for, industrious self-respecting peasants in  place of one of poverty-stricken besotted tatterdemalions. Does any  person suppose that humpty-dumpty  of drink can ever be reseated on his  crazy wall by all the horses and all  the men of Russian bureaucracy? Russia has emerged permanently it ;is to  be hoped, from the Siberian night because the muzhik has flung aside the  vodka bottle, and become a man.���������  Christian Science Monitor.  What a Sea Fight Means  The Supreme    Glory of the    British  Navy That M.en Place Duty Al-  ,' ways Before Fersonal Safety  What is the real character of a battle at sea under modern conditions?  Wilson Young, in an article in the  London Times, helps us to understand.,"It is more ringed with terror  than any other human experience.  Each man commits, himself with a  thousand others, to a vulnerable shell,  and launches it into an arena sheeted  and bolted with flame and concussion.  He can do nothing for;his own safety, but only for the common purpose."  If his ship is mortally wounded, he  passes not to !a hospital or dressing  station, but into the cold sea, where  also disappears patients and surgeons  in the very act of operating.  Know ing this, he must go on doing  quietly and cooly the exact work for  which he has been trained���������work, perhaps, such as other men'do in the  calm of a chemical laboratory. He  may have to perform the most delicate scientific operations with the utmost care, conscious that he has only  a minute or two to live in this world.  Mr. Young says:  ,"It is the' supreme glory of the  British navy���������sometimes I think the  supreme achievements of the British  race���������that thousands and thousands  of men are always ready to do this  as a mattar of course; do it easily, desire to do it. There is no one to whom  life is sweeter than to the average  sailor, whose mental habit is to be  always looking forward to pleasures;  and there is no one who can bb utterly put aside the pre-occupation of  safety and lose himself in his immediate duty. How else, indeed,, would  such events as Beatty's single-handed  fight with the German battle fleet be  possible? If men thought of themselves in such a situation, their demoralization would be indescribable,  and the names Queen- Mary, Invincible, and Indefatigable would be  names of terror.

That  was a favorite mystery for generations, but a few years ago fly experts  began to say a. lot about wintering  wintering flies/and so within the past  couple of years we have had a flood  of fly literature telling us that if we  swatted an over-wintering house fly  we would kill possible '���������< descendants  running into the billions.  Well, in the middle of the past winter we happened to see flies in a  building in a certain town of one of  the Middle States. We mentioned the  fact to an entomologist and he doubted that they could be house flies. So  there was nothing to do. but to catch  a few of them and prove that his skep-  tisisrri was superfluous. But it was  not. He was right. Furthermore, the  scientists will not. admit such a thing  as an over-wintering house fly until  it can be established by better evidence than they have been able to  find.   .    ,..;������������������,.   '.'������������������  Recently Prof. Arthur Shipley, of  Cambridge, spoke before the Royal  Society of Arts on insects and /the  war. In the course of his talk he said  of the house fly: "We used to think  that some, in a state of suspended animation, were 'carried on' through the  winter months. This is, however, non-.  proven. He concluded: "The manner  in which the interval between one fly  season and the next is bridged still  reniams unsolved." It is safe to conclude that nobody knows where the  flics ;go in winter���������-but everybody  wishes they would stay there.��������� The  Country Gentleman.

To Collect for Seed Grain  Dominion Government Out to Collect  Ten Million Dollars  Preparations r.re being made by the  Department of the Interior to collect  this year the larger part of the advances for seed grain made to western farmers for the crop of last year.  Over ten million dollars was loaned  by the Dominion government in the  drought-stricken districts in Southern  Alberta and in Southern Saskatchewan. Last year despite the heavy  crop, many farmers were in no position to make any payment. This year  it is hoped to collect the larger portion of this amount. A head office  has been opened in Moose Jaw, with  Harry Cuttle, Chief Inspector of  Homestead Agencies, in charge.  Arrangements have been made to  have payments made to postmasters,  while no collections will be made by  the elevators.  Worms sap the strength and undermine the vitality of children.

Live Stock Commission is Collecting  Much Valuable Information  The Royal Live Stock Commission  appointed by the Government of Saskatchewan is collecting much information which will be of value in improving the live stock industry of that  province.  The commission is formed of some  of the best live stock men in the  West. Hon. W. C. ��������� Sutherland is  chairman; Hon. W. R. Motherwell is  a'sb a member.  Sittings were recently held in Winnipeg and the Commission will eventually visit a number of eastern cities.  The immediate object is to gather information regarding the marketing of  live stock. Any person able to give  evidence relative to the matter in discussion will be gladly heard and in  return the information that is acquired in eastern Canada and the States  will be willingly given to ail."  Transportation has become one of  the most vital problems of the day.  Coal is an exam'ple, the transportation of which costs more than the  coal itself at the mine. The live  stock industry is greatly affected by  the same thing.  Hon. R. W. Motherwell speaking in  Winnipeg said: "It is only natural  that grain growing should be the first  industry of the west and all praise  is due to the pioneers yet like many  of the older countries the time had  come when the livestock industry is  becoming predominant. The livestock  industry is now the corner-stone of  the three provinces and the older  countries have profited by the same  experiences which these provinces are  now having."  Proceeding he said that it was a  progressive step, that the government  would now have to choose whether  they would handle the problem the  same as the telephones, and that the  question of the packing plants, and  abattoirs, would have to be considered, for perhaps while they could  make large profits a smaller concern  could not compete with them. He said  that there was a decided feeling  among the farmers that there could  be made great improvements in marketing conditions, and that the commission, if failing to do any other  good >vould at east have helped to  calm the fears of the farmer that men  manipulating the markets were robbing them.  W. R. Ingram, Esq., of the Swift-  Canadian Company gave much in  formation concerning stock loan companies. Mr. Ingram is much in favor  of these companies for they offer a  line of credit which the banks cannot  touch.   He said:  "It has been my experience -that  cattlemen prefer to deal with cattlemen, and on a certain street where  there is a bank and a livestock loan  company doing business, nine out of  every ten will go to the loan company for their credit."  In dealing with the matter of the  one-half of one per cent, insurance  alTowed packers on condemned carcasses, Mr. Ingrain stated that the  packers were entitled to it and that  it was barely sufficient to cover the  loss they sustained in  this way.  He favored the bonding of livestock drovers and brought up the  matter of reaching the press, with  an accurate account of the local livestock market prices. He claims the  drovers arc always well posted by  wire or letter and that it would only  be doing justice to the farmer to  furnish him  this information.  Value of Advertising  Big Corporation    Decides to    Shelve  Old Policy and Use Newspaper Space  The Bethlehem Steel Company has  entered upon a campaign of newspaper advertising which is epoch-  making. Display advertisement space  is being utilized in a list of 3,500  newspapers. The purpose of the campaign is to present the case of the  Bethlehem company in regard to the  proposed establishment of an armor  plant by the United States government.  ' The most' important phase of this  matter is the belated decision by a  great corporation that a policy of  secrecy is disastrous. Silence on the  part of a corporation, when its interests are at stake, denotes a fear to  meet the issue in the open.

Trade at Home  Co-operation Between the Farmer and  Merchant is Necessary for the  Success of the Community  Why not be consistent? This paper, preaches and practices trade at  home.������������������'.'There are merchants and business men of, this town who do riot  do this. To advocate the idea of trading at home is pleasing to a number of our people as long as it means  to buy from them, but frequently  when they need what may be ^bought  here; they go elsewhere, or send orders to mail order houses. This is  not fair, and it is inconsistent. The  grocer who buys his clothing, dry  goods or shoes away from home has  no right to be offended if the local  dry goods, clothing and shoe dealers  go elsewhere to buy their groceries,  and the merchants who sell clothing,  dry goods or shoes owe the same  duty to the local grocer that the  grocer does vo them. Then why not  trade at home?  Co-operation is necessary if our city  or our country are to be prosperous.  The farmer who has no use for the  town except as a place to sell his  produce does injustice to his own interests as well as to those who live  in the town or city. And the merchant  who has no use for the farmer except as a customer to whom he can  sell his goods, acts as badly as the  fanner who goes away or sends away  for what he wants. Then why not  trade at home?  A country is prosperous in proportion to the prosperity enjoyed by its  towns and cities, and no town of city  can be prosperous without the co-op-  eration^of the people of the country.  Each is dependent one upon the other  for that which is for the betterment  of both. Then why not trade at  home?  The farmer who says he has no interest in the welfare of the town and  the town man who says he has no  interest in the prosperity of the country, are both wrong, their interests  a.e mutual. Just as an illustration: If  a destructive fire consumed every  building in our capital city and the  word went out that the city would  not be rebuilt, would any acre of land  in the vicinity then be worth half as  much as it is now? And if there should  be a terrible drought or some other  calamity come upon the farmers,  would not the residents of the town  bo sorely affected, many of them  ruined? Are we not, be we residents  of the country or of the town or city,  dependent upon each other for success? Think of this and trade at  home.���������Swift Current Sun.

"The battalion was pushed up to  what may be called the third wave  in the attack on probably the .most  formidable section of the whole Gcr-  \ man front through an almost ovcr-  .' whelming artillery fire and over  ground swept by an enfilading machine gun fire from hidden positions.  \ The battalion behaved with noticc-  j able steadiness and courage."  France Sends a Greeting  On Eve of Celebration of French National    Festival    President  Sends Appreciation  ' London.���������President Poincarc sent  the following message in apprcciatior  of the 'British celebration of the  French national festival:  "The /French nation has watched  with unbounded admiration the deeds  of Britain's glorious navy, and the  wonderful development of the empire's mighty resources, and now her  growing army, alongside ours and  those of our other gallant allies, is  paving the way fo*r. final victory on  land. France sends affectionate greetings of lasting brotherhood to the  United Kingdom and the dominions  overseas. The president recalls with  great satisfaction the receipt of a stirring address on France's day last  year. On that occasion the splendid  tribute was sent to our wounded soldiers. They with the whole nation  have been deeply touched by this and  many other" instances of devoted personal services and great generosity of  the people from every part of the  British  Empire.";  To the whole empire, M. .Cambon  makes an appeal which will not be in  vain, to British generosity for the  sick and wounded on the long battle  front at a moment when the gallant  soldiers of France are once more  showing their indomitable spirit.

Text of the Lesson, Acts xviii, 1-22.  Memory Verses, 9, 10���������Golden Text,  Acts xviii, 9.���������Commentary Prepared  By Rev. D. M. Stearns.  I do not know that we can tell how  long Paul remained at Athens, but he  gave a faithful testimony, and some  believed (chapter xvii, 34). The messenger of the Lord-is apt to be discouraged if he finds opposition to his  message and seemingly few, if any,  believing, or if after a faithful testimony there is neither a "thank you"  nor a word of appreciation. It is true  that we must never speak to please  people nor covet their approval, but  most of us are so awfully human that  a word of gratitude from one who has  been helped by the message is very  cheering (I Thess. ii, 4; II Tim. ii, IS).  The devil will be sure to tell you that  you have accomplished nothing and  had better seek some other occupation, and messengers have been known  to heed his suggestion. I am thankful that 'some one said to me many  years ago, as I wondered if any good  was being done: "Do you recollect  that when the devil sowed his tares he  went his way, for he was sure that  they would grow? And you do not  seem to think that the Word of God  is as good seed as the devil's tares."  That helped me* greatly, and since  then I have gone my way after a service, saying: "Thank God; that will  work; it will surely accomplish His  pleasure"   (Isa. iv,   11;  Jer. i,   12,  R.  V)*  Leaving Athens,     Paul     went     to  Corinth, a wicked, worldly, commercial centre, notorious for its immoralr  ity, and the first thing we read of  him "is, not that he preached, but that  he found employment with some who  were of the same craft with himself���������  that of tent making���������and he abode  with them (verses 1-3)., He would  rather .work at his trade and thus earn  his living than be a burden to an one.  He afterward wrote to this people,  asking them to forgive him if he had  wronged them by not being a burden  to them (Con xii, 13-16). It does  sound a little like sarcasm. The Lord  Jesus Himself was known as the carpenter (Mark vi, 3) and no doubt  helped to make a living for the family  till He began His public ministry.  When the Sabbath days came round  Paul was ready to testify to the/Jews  in the synagogue that Jesus was the  Christ, their Messiah (verses 4, S and  margin). Silas and Timothy, whom  he had left at Berea and for whom he  had sent from Athens that they might  come- to him,' reached him here at  Corinth (xvii, 14, 15). The phrase  "pressed in spirit" (verse 5) is translated in the R. V. "constrained by the  Word." Weymouth says Paul was  preaching fervently. We think of  Jeremiah, who, when he was derided  and reproached, was tempted to stop  speaking the Word of the Lord, but  it was such a burning fire within him  that he had to speak (Jer. xx, 7-9).  We think also of Elihu, who said that  he was so constrained by the spirit  within him that he was like a bottle  of wine ready to burst'and he had to  speak that he might be refreshed  (Job. xxxii, 18-20).  When the Jews opposed Paul and  blasphemed he turned from them to  the gentiles and found an open dooi  in a house close by the" synagogue,  owned by a man named Justus, who  worshiped God (verses 6, 7). When  God wants His message, proclaimed  He will provide a place. I held a  classl in one town where all the  churches were closed against me for  the truth's sake, but a hotel proprietor  invited us to meet in his parlors, arid  so we continued. Paul said concerning one place. "A great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there  continued at Corinth a year and six  months, teaching the word of God  among them (verse 11). In due time  he sailed thence, taking Priscilla and  Aquila, and, leaving them at Ephesus,  he went on to Caesarea and Jerusalem  and Antioch and thus completed his  second missionary journey (verses :18-  22). We would like to know where  he left Timothy and what became of  Silas, but we shall meet Timothy  again, and we can wait to know a lot  of things. It seemed to Paul that he  must be in Jerusalem in the near future, but note his " if God will" and  see Jas. iv, IS.

London.���������The most violent fighting  i(h001 "to I *n l'ie great allied offensive is on the  eastern front/'when General Brusiloff's  tremendous  blows  arc  being  continued  without apparent  lull  or  hesitation.    Temporarily, at least, the Aus-  tro-Germans    appear to  have  halted  the Russian advance along the Shok-  hod.    Both  sides  are reported  to  be  hurling  huge  reinforcements  of  men  and   guns   into   this   titanic   struggle,  the prize of which is the immensely  important strategic town of Kovel.  Further to the south, a battle of almost equal intensity is raging on the  lower Stripa, where the Russians are  striking north, in an effort to crush  Gen. von Bothmer, and flank the entire Austro-'German line. The Aus-  trians admit that the Russians penetrated von Bothmer's front, at some  points, , but assert that they were  driven out again in counter-attacks.  The Russians claim to have taken,  2,000 prisoners, but make no mention  of a gain in territory.  The British have held .their gains  on their portion of the Somme front,  and have appreciably advanced at  some points. The usual .period of  consolidation and the pushing forward  of the big artillery is presumed to be  taking place. The British have^ also  captured some German howitzers,  with a quantity of ammunition, which  "will be used against the enemy at  a suitable opportunity."  A similar situation exists on the  French lines, and a remarkably brief  French official statement of Thursday night simply records the continuance of the bombardment of Fort  Souville in the Verdun region.  to,, exhibition grounds. 2:00 p.m.,  sports in front of grand stand. 3:00  arc many adversaries" (I Cor. xvi, 9).

Delay in Reply to  Casualty Queries  Staff at Ottawa Tries to be Prompt  But Difficulties are Many\  Ottawa.���������The casualty branch of  the militia department for the past  month has been receiving an average  of 200 queries a day from relatives of  the men reported wounded or missing  at the front. A staff of a little over  six hundied is now employed in tae  branch looking after the records and  keeping track of the individual members of Canada's army.  Some complaint has been made by  anxious relatives who have had lo  wait a week or ten days, or perhaps  more, before receiving replies to their  queries for detailed information as to  the character of the wounds of those  about whom inquiries are made, or  whether any information has been  received in cases where the men have  been reported 'missing. The officials  in charge of the branch, which is under the capable supervision of Frank  Beard and Miss Maloney, in every  case answer all inquiries, at the earliest possible moment. ������/  It is pointed out, however, that it  takes at least seven days to get replies from England to the cabled  messages /of inquiry, which are going forword at all hours of the day  and night. "These inquiries have to  be sifted out in London and redirected to the hospitals or battalions  where "the individual cases in . question are located. Everything possible  is being done here to expedite the  giving of information to relatives, and  it is hoped that the latter will bear in  mind that there must be considerable  unavoidable delay in many instances.

London.���������David Lloyd George Secretary of State for War presiding at  an allied conference on equipment, declared that the combined olfensive of  the allies had wrenched the initiative  from the German, never, he trusted,  to return.  "We have crossed the watershed,"  he said, "and now victory is beginning to flow in our direction. "I his  change is due to the improvement in  our equipment.  The conference was held at the  War Office, and was participated in  by Albert Thomas, French Minister  of Munitions; Gt:n. Beliaeff, Assistant  Minister of War of Russia; Gen. A.  Da I'Olio, member of the Italian  Ministry of War, and the new British  Minister of Munitions, Edwin S. Montagu.  "Since   our   last   munitions  conference," said Mr., Lloyd George, "there  has been a considerable change in the  fortunes oi the allies.    On that date,  the great Champagne offensive in the  west, had just failed to attain its objective, and the French and   .British'  armies had sustained    heavy    losses,  without the achievement of any particular success.   In the east' the enemy  had pressed the gallant armies of Rus- *  sia back some hundred miles, and the  Balkans had just been overrun by the  central powers.  "The overwhelming victoiics won  by the valiant soldiers of Russia have  struck terror into the hearts of our  foes, and these, coupled with the immortal defence of Verdun by our indomitable French comrades and the  brave resistance of the Italians against  overwhelming odds in the Southern  Alps have changed the whole com-  lexion of the landscape.  "Now, the combined ��������� offensive in  the. cast and west has wrenched the  initiative out of the hands of,the enemy���������never, I trust, to return to his  grasp. .    _  "vVhy have .our prospects improved? .The answer is, the equipment of  our "armies has improved enormously,  and is continuing to improve. The  British navy, until recently, has absorbed more than half the metal workers of this country. The task of building new ships and repairing the.old  ones for the gigantic navy, and fitting  and_ equipping them occupies the energies of a million men. Most of our  new factories now arc complete, most  of the machinery has been set up.  Hundreds of thousands of men and  women, hitherto unaccustomed to  metal and chemical work, have been  trained for munitions making.  "Every month we are turning out  hundreds of guns and howitzers light,  medium and heavy. Our heavy guns  arc rolling in at a greater rate and we  arc turning out nearly twice as much  ammunition in a single week ���������- and  what is more/nearly three tithes as  many shells���������as we fired in the great  offensive in September, although the  ammunitions we expended in that'battle was the result ��������� of many weary  weeks' accumulation. The new factories and workshops we set up have  not yet attained one-third their , full  capacity, but their output 'is', now-  increasing with great rapidity. Our  main difficulties in organization; construction, equipment, labor supply and  re-adjustment have been solved. If  officials, employers and workmen  keep at it with the'same zeal and assiduity as they have hitherto employed our supplies, will soon be overwhelming.-^  "I cannot help thinking that the improvement in the Russian ammunition  has been one of the greatest and most  unpleasant surprises the enemy has  sustained. Still,! our task is but half  accomplished. Every great battle furnishes additional proof that this is a  war of equipment. More ammunition  means more victories and fewer casualties."

Insect Destroyers  Birds  That Are   Especially  Active  in  Trees   and   Foliage  Canada's bird visitors are rapidly  returning for the warmer season, and  we may again look forward to their  assistance in the destruction of caterpillars and insects, so destructive  to our trees.  One of the most important of these  birds is the woodpecker. It feeds on  lafvae and small insects, which are  found in crevices of* the bark; securing them with its protrusible tongue.  This tongue is sharp, hard at the end,  has barbs directed backward, and can  Be extended several inches. The redheaded woodpecker, besides digging  .out of bark, seizes them on the wing.  In the examination of over 700 stomachs of woodpeckers, animal food,  mostly  insects,  was  found  to   cousti-  Canada Has 50,000 Men  In The Firing Line lhteIllaent 8eIectlon8 of Dairy Cow8,8  The Dairy Herd  Over 200,000 Men Still to be Recruited  Hero  A memorandum summarizing th������  work of the opartment of militia in  connection with the war, during the  past twelve months, was presented to  parliament by Sir Robert Borden as a  preliminary to the request for the  voting of $250,000,000 to provide the  sinews of war for the coming fiscal  year.  The memorandum covers reports  from the chief, of the general staff,  the quartermaster-general, the master-general of the ordnance, the  paymaster-general and the director  of contracts and includes several  hundred orders-in-council dealing with  contracts and war operations of all  kinds. '  '  ' Perhaps the most interesting information given is that Canada had actually at the front, on March 18 last,  about 60,000 troops or practically  three  complete  divisions.  Also in England or in passage to  England on that date, there were  44,000 troops; in Canada, there were  134,000 troops, in, the West Indies  there was the 38th Battalion, at Bermuda, and a company of the Canadian Royal- Garrison Artillery at St.  Lucia, while with the British Mediterranean expeditionary force there  were three Canadian general ,hospi-,  tals, and three Canadian stationary  hospitals.  Out of a total of effectives amounting to 240,000 there were only'60,000  troops actually in the fighting, including the permanent force, there  were 13,000 men. At the present  time, to complete the total authorized army of half a million, a little  over 200,000 men have still to be recruited.  Of the 44,000 troops in England,  about half are at Shorncliffe, as one  training division, under Brig.-Geri. J.  C. MacDougall, while another training division is at Bramshoot," under  Brig.-Gen. Lord Brooke.  It is intended as soon as the weather permits, to concentrate the men  in training in Canada at camps for  the summer, namely, at London, at  Niagara, at Petawawa (with a detachment at Barriefield), at Valcar-  tier (including the Quebec and the  Maritime' Provinces men), at Camp  Hughes. Man.; at Vernon, B.C., and  at the Sarcee Reserve, in, Alberta,  near Calgary.  To transport 87,659 of "all ranks,  and in addition, 2,891 Montenegrins  overseas during the past twelve  months, has required 157 special  trains, and ninety-four- steamships.  In addition, 17,013 horses had been  sent over on eighteen steamships.  The housing" of the troops in Canada for the winter months cost a total  of $853,130, while for the housing of  guards, prisoners of war, the establishing of convalescent homes, etc.,  the cost was $147,135. On the defences at" Halifax there has been an  expenditure of approximately $145.-  000, and on the Quebec defences,  nearly   $90,000.  The report of the paymaster-general shows that for the sixteen  months ending with December 31  last, the total expenditure on war  account had been $153,000,000, of  which $118,000,000 had been expended  in Canada, and $34,600,000 in England.  Of the, total expenditures approximately .$82,000,000 went for pay allowances, ration's, etc.    ���������������������������������������������.  The total expended in separation  allowances is given as $9,148,000.  . ' At the' present time the monthly  expenditure is up to about $18,000,000  or; considerably over half a million  per day.  A High Mountain Peak  Proposed     H igh way to   Mt.  Whitney,  the Highest Peak in the United    -.  ' States���������  VA highway to Mt. Whitney, the  highest peak in the United States,  will be built if plans recommended by  the Los Angeles chamber of commerce  are. carried'out. The California mountain is 14,502 feet in the clouds, about  400 feet higher than Pikes Peak in  Colorado. .  The proposed road would open' up  wonderful scenic territory, at is would  pierce the great Sequoia forest -j-'.  serve for 85 miles. A preliminary estimate places the cost at approximately $300,000. The several counties and  organizations that are pushing the  project are hoping for government  aid, as "the new highway would afford better fire protection for billions  of feet of magnificent timber owned  by Uncle Sam.  Surveys indicate that the summit of  the towering peak could be reached  by a road with a maximum grade of  ten per cent.  The view from the top is pronounced uuequaled in the world by- those  who have made the trip on horses.  Death Valley, the Funeral Mountains  and hundreds of lakes, streams, forests and ranges are visible. While  highly desirable from a scenic viewpoint, the. proposed highway is important commercially, as it would open  miles of hitherto inaccessible reserves now used extensively for cattle.    .  Necessary  Not only Interest but real value attaches to the question of carefully  noting the individual performance of  each cow in the herd. It is only after Keeping ��������������� complete record that  one finds such a strange contrast as  this: Of two five-year-old cows in one  herd, both fresh the same day, both  dried off the same week, one gav3  5,454 pounds of milk and 213 pounds  of fat, the other gave only 3,570  pounds of milk and 153 pounds of fat.  Most probably the owner would not  have taken on a bet at the beginning of the season that the one' cow  could, bring in over twenty-two dollars more than the other, but' she  did.  In another section, of -two cowsv ol  the same age, one gave 8,430 pounds  of milk and 362 pounds of fat, but  the other day gave only 1,690 pounds  of milk and 67 pounds of fat. Is there a  difference of eighty-eight dollars in  the earning power of any two cows  in your herd?  Building up' a profitable dairy herd  includes the selection of good individual cows. The rational method is  to weigh the milk and test samples  regularly for fat. Write to the dairy  division, Ottawa, for information on  cow-testing, so that your selection  may be intelligent, "so that your profits may be larger.  Should Conserve Petroleum  What Shall  We  Do  When the  Oil  Is  Gone  is the Question  Now  Asked  ' How much petroleum there is in  the United, States no one knows,  writes Franklin K. Lane, secretary  of the interior, in an article- on -/'Economic Preparedness." .��������� But at the  present rate of consumption���������265,-  000,000 barrels-a year���������it will soon be  exhausted, for the Geological Survey's maximum estimate is 23,000,-  000,000  barrels.  "Whatever the supply," he says, "it  should not be allowed in its crude  state to compete with coal as fuel.  Petroleum is a priceless resource, for  it can never be replaced. Trees can  be grown again on the soil from  which they have, been taken. But  how can petroleum be produced? It  has taken ages for nature to distill  it in her subterranean laboratory. We  do not even know her process. We  may find a substitute for it, but have  not yet. It Is practically the one lubricant of the world today.. Not a  railroad wheel turm without its way  being smoothed by it. We can make  light and heat by hydro-electric power, but the great turbines move on  bearings that are smothered in petroleum. From it we get the quick  exploding gas which, is to the motor  and the airship what air is to tlie  human body.

Both men on their arrival in England were recognized by the military1  authorities as having been badly  wounded last summer. One of the  men had actually lost an arm. In  course of time tho two men ,.were,  with others, sent back to Germany in  exchange for British prisoners as incapacitated ���������tor further service, and  it was of course never imagined that  they  would  be seen again.  Evidently, however, the Germans  are. hard pressed for men, for the  one armed soldier and his "incapacitated" comrade were once more  sent to the trenches," where for the  second time they fell into British  hands. '���������;  Both men, when challenged by the  military authorities at the camp to  which they were sent, frankly admitted that" they had been captured  twice.  Sir George Perley Speaks In London  of Canadian  Aspirations  Speaking at a luncheon given recently at' the National Liberal club,  London, in honor of representatives  of the Overseas dominions, and at  which Lord Crewe presided, Sir Geo.  Perley, acting high commissioner for  Canada, said that Canadians would  not be willing to have their powers  of self-government curtailed in any  way." They had, in fact, been looking  forward to the time when they might  have something to say regarding matters of comr_K>n interest to the empire���������such as peace or war and foreign relations. "Our people," continued Sir George, "are proud to be doing  their share, but It must be evident,  when we carry our part of the burden of the empire, we should at the  same time have a vote in all directions regarding matters of common  concern.  "I do not wish to say anything  which would appear like participation in a discussion of the fiscal questions which have aroused party controversy in England, but I may be  permitted to. say it seems vital that  everything possible should be done  to make the empire.self-contained and  leave us in a. position to assert our  economic influence. I am sure you  will agree���������leaving out the many  questions on fiscal theory���������that if a  metal mined in Canada or Australia  is needed as a finished product here,  we certainly should keep it under our  own control through its various  changes. It is not consistent with  our imperial dignity that it should be  refined in Germany and sent back  here   as   a  finished   product.  "Ever since confederation Canada  had kept in view the imperial ideal.  We refused to allow natural attraction toward that great republic, the  United States, to draw us from our  imperial connection.

The chickadee is another of our  ���������most active insect destroyers. It  is especially active in the vicinity  ���������of any timber or wood chopping.  The birds will become very familiar, and will readily make friends.  "Not being equipped, as the woodpecker is, with a long bill, they  take advantage of the cutting of cord-  wood, etc., to secure the grubs* found  under the bark or exposed in tlie cut-  -ting. As a rule, however, they feed  upon the insects of the orchard, the  bush or shrubbery.  The woodpecker and the chickadee  are only two of the many birds which  .are of great service both in the city  X 'and country, and it is surely not too  \inuch to ask that.people give them the  /necessary protection to allow them to  j. continue their invaluable work.

Well, when  she got home, she said, 'Mamma, I  rode from school with Mr. Lloyd  George, the lawyer, and he kept talking to me, and I didn't know whatever  to do, for you know Mr. Lloyd George  the lawyer, chrrges you whenever you  talk with him, and I hadn't any  money."���������Youth's Companion.  Seed     Supplies    For  Special   Grades  The establishing of special grades  for seed of Red Fife and Marquis  wheats, white oats and six-rowed  barley at governemnt interior terminal elevators, which are well  equipped for cleaning and handling  seed grains, has resulted 'in a substantial supply of clean Marquis  wheat of excellent quality, a lesser  quantity of Red 'Fife wheat suitable for seeding, but not nearly  enough oats and barley to meet the  demand for good clean seed. Reports to hand indicate that- shippers who hold warehouse receipts  for ^eed oa'ts are receiving ten to  fifteen cents per bushel in advance  of the trade price for commercial  oats. The difficulty in securing an  abundant supply of seed oats in  these terminal elevators has been  duo to the, prevalence of wild oats  and barley as impurities which prevents No. 2 Canada Western oats  being accepted for seed. These seed  grades are available through the  usual channels of commerce for  grain.  Mrs.   McClung   Does "Not   Favor   the  Formation of a Woman's Party  At a political meeting in Edmonton,  Mrs. McClung spoke of the suffrage  movement in general and the change  which had recently come in Alberta.  "Now the women have come to the  last ditch and in Alberta and Manitoba have crossed it, and although not  much is said openly," she said, "I believe there are inward tremblings of  what is going to happen.  "People are afraid, and I am not  blaming them. Changes are fearsome  things! Just as new doors, new avenues are opened up for women, there  are new ways for them to make mistakes, but mistakes are not necessarily fatal, or none of us would bo  here tonight!" '  *Mrs. McClung made it quite plain  that she did not favor the formation  of a woman's party. "I can see no  future for such a movement," she  said. "But I can see that the great  independent, unfettered body of  women voters, carefully studying the  questions of human and social welfare, without bias, not looking- for  favors, or jobs, or preference, might  become a factor in shaping the policies of governments, or in -forming  the platform of oppositions. It is  only by careful,, calm, .determinate  study, and hard work, unselfishly  given, that this can be brought about.  "Women have a lot to learn, but  that is nothing against them. The  process is pleasant. It does not make  so much difference where you are  as the direction you are going?  Women are now the leisure class;  they have more spare time than men;  for a large part of their work'has  been taken from them, and is done  in factories. The ready-made garment has come to stay���������so has the  electric washer, and iron���������and we  are glad to say many women are  anxious to use their spare time to  promote'public welfare.  "We may as well admit that, in  pur legislation human welfare has  lagged behind material welfare.

Recounting Some Marvellous Feats of  tho   Fair  Sex  ���������There Is scarcely a remote corner of  the earth into which women have not  carried brave hearts, and often frail  bodies. They have gone where few  men have ventured to go, and have  not only added rich stores to our  knowledge of the world we live in,  but have done splendid pioneer work  for the extension of our empire.  Miss Mary Kingsley was the first  Briton to enter the terrible gorilla  country in the Cameroons, and to explore the land of the Fangwes, the  most blood-thirsty cannibals on earth,  risking a hundred deaths on her journey.  Lady Baker was the first European  to look on' the Albert Nynaza, and  much that we know of the secrets of  Central Africa we' owe to her clever  pen. And Lady Baker has a formidable rival in another of her sex, Mrs.  Jane Moir, who spent long and perilous years in the very heart of the  Dark Continent, and was the chief instrument in adding Nyassaland to our  colonies. -  Few men have had a life so adventurous as Mrs. Bishop, a lady of frail  physique, who has roamed the world  from the Rockies to the Pacific islands. __  She was the first woman to scale  the almost inaccessible Long's Peak,  in Colorado, and to visit the remote  regions of Japan and China. She has  travelled into the most ��������� daiigerous  Kurdistan and Asiatic Turkey; she  has been captured by brigands in  North America, led a Crusoe life in  the Sandwich Islands, and has wrested  all the secrets from a dozen "other  lands from Siberia to Ceylon.  Patagonia was almost an unknown  country ' until Lady, Florence Dixie,  with a rare courage, set herself .the  task of exploring it some years ago,  risking her life every day for months  among the savage tribes, and, among  other excellent work, discovered a  race of men hitherto unknown.  No less adventurous is Miss Gordon  Cummlng, the story of whose travels  outstrips fiction. She has "played  Crusoe" on a score of islands in -the  Pacific, climbed the Himalayas, feasted with Fijians, checked a rebellion  in Samoa, scaled California peaks,  and travelled thousands of leagues in  China and Ceylon and New Zealand.  In fact, it would almost be easier  to say where she has not been than  where her adventurous feet have taken her. It was, it is said, very largely through Miss Cuniming's intimate  knowledge of the Pamirs that our  government was - able to counter a  dangerous Asiatic move by a European rival some time ago.  Mrs. Bullock-Workman is another  lady who has done magnificent woric  in exploration. She has penetrated  into most of the world's out-of-the-  way regions, has toured India on a bicycle, and knows more of the Himalayas than any other human being,  save   her  husband.  But it is chiefly as a mountaineer  that Mrs. Workman has won fame,  by scaling peaks compared with  which the Alps are almost   pigmies.  To this intrepid lady a climb of  anything under 20,000 feet is mere  child's play. She has left this giddy  height far below her many times, and  not long ago established a record in  mountain, climbing by camping out at  an altitude of 24,300 feet���������more than  a mile and a half higher than Mont  Blac!  Nor must we forget, among those  women of enterprise and daring, Mrs.  Theodore Bent, whose journeys of exploration, in her husband's company,  have ranged from Asia Minor to Ma-  shonaland, and from the Cyclades to  Abyssinia and the Soudan.���������London  Answers.

Round' upvGerman Spies in  Paris  The French secret service, which is  weir organized, has been busy rounding lip the German spies in Paris who  are'working in the hotels and restaurants as "German-Swiss", waiters, porters and valets. Two hundred suspects were arested recently, and half  that number has been imprisoned and  fined. Those who have been proved  to be of neutral birth will be interned  or expelled from France when they  have completed their term of imprisonment.  No one is permitted to talk over  the telephone in France except in the  native language, by order of the government. An alleged Swiss waiter at  one of the best known hotels along  the boulevards was overheard by a  naval officer rejoicing over the telephone to a colleague on the heavy  German artillery attack on Verdun  When he was arrested the man proved to be a genuine Bosche, but the  man he was talking to and who escaped was a German-Swiss, the secret service men said.  Hog Pastures  - Pigs make the cheapest gains on  pasture. Trials at the North Dakota  Experiment Station indicate that  broods sows running on good pasture and nursing, litters will do as  well when receiving one to two and  a half pounds of grain per each 100.  pounds live weight of sow, as sows"  in dry lot receiving ��������� 2%:.pounds,  grain per day per each 100 pounds  light weight. The pasture just about  cuts the feed cost in two. The pasture alone does not furnish enough  feed for either the brood sow with  litter or for the weaned pigs.' They  should be fed some grain, so as to  ��������� make a rapid growth, in this way  the spring pig can be ready for  market before real cold weather  sets  in.  Alfalfa, clover, bromus and winter rye make the earliest pastures.  When these have not been provided early, spring seeding of such  grains as oats and barley or rape  are the next best thing.���������Farm and  Ranch Review.

As the late Charles A.  Dana said: "It is not news if a dog  bites a man, but it is news if a man  bites a dog." The unusual attracts attention.

Saving the Birds of Passage  Have you jver wondered about the  fate of tlie thousands of birds which  cross the seas at migration times?  In severe storms and when there  are thick fogs, many of them are  overpowered, or bewildered and die  of exhaustion.  Many lighthouse keepers around  the British Isles have adopted a  splendid plan for saving the migratory birds, by constructing a great  many perches and rests beneath  the lights. These resting places have  sheltered a large number of migrants  when wind or fog has overpowered  them.  The keeper of a lighthouse in the  Isle of Wight said that it. was now  a rare occurrence to pick up dead  birds around the light. The smaller birds made good use of the  perches. It seems, in fact, that  these death-luring lights have been  changed into harbors of safety for  the birds.

The giver obtained this  wool or yarn from an old lady in  1880; this lady was the "Mary" of  the rhyme.  The yarn was cut from a pair of  stockings which Mary's mother  knitted for her nearly a hundred  years ago. Mary and the lamb  made that trip'to school in 1814;  if you are good at dates you will  remember that was the year before  the great battle of Waterloo.  Farm Land Values Increasing  in  U.S.  Farm land values are increasing almost by lQaps and bounds. Figures  made public by the U.S. department  of agriculture show that values for  the United States, taken as a whole,  increased 25.7 per cent, in the past  four years -nd 11.5;per cent, last year.  The figures are based upon reports  from the department's field agents.  An ounce of prevention Is worth a !  Women Farmers, in Britain  ���������      /  Government   Will    Train Women    In  Agricultural   Pursuits  "Britons are coming slowly to a  realization of the country's needs,"  declared the Hon. Walter Hume Long,  president of the local government  board, London, in addressing the inaugural of the Women's National  Land Service Corps, which intends to  undertake agricultural work during  the absence at the front or in the  government employ of the men of the  British Isles. "    '  Mr. .Long declared that tne government required co-operation of all  classes, and heartily approved of the  women's movement, which, he said,  meant that women would now take  even a larger share in the defence of  the country.  "We want soldiers," said Mr. Long.  "The government means to have sufficient soldiers, and we are getting  them. But we also want to keep the  land cultivated and obtain a maximum output, so that we may assist  our overseas trade and our imperial  position.  "There is a wide field open for  women's activities. Women have  proved themselves capable of work,  which, before the war, they were  thought unfitted to perform, and it  is the farmers' patriotic duty not to  employ a single man who can be  spared for a more important occupation."  The government has announced its  intention to employ a corps for the  purpose of training women in agricultural pursuits.  .X  \:  pound of cure,   but a pound of cure is  worth a ton of I-told-you-so.

WPTHERELL  At a dinner consisting of a dozen  persons or thereabouts a lady who had  recently returned from abroad wore  on her finger a ring she had brought  from Rome. It had been found In digging the foundation for a bouse to be  erected on the Via Cavour, and, con-  eidering the depth at which it lay and  dts workmanship, archaeologists placed  it us belonging to the time of Augustus Caesar. The rlug having been noticed by some one sitting near her,  the ludy took it off ber linger, and It  was passed around the tuble for Inspection.  The curiosity that had belonged to  eo distant a period and probably the  juiost Interesting to modern European  races In history led to a spirited dialogue on the conditions existing at the  .Eternal City under Augustus, and the  ring was forgotten. Later Its owner  asked for it. Each person who had  ���������held it looked at some one else at the  fable, but no one produced the ring.  Several minutes passed, during which  ���������a search was being made among tho  .tableware, the brow of the lady who  had submitted It for Inspection meanwhile darkening. The host, who also  looked anxious, arose and, asking the  guests to push their chairs back from  the table, looked carefully under it,  "but without success.  There   bad   bepn.no   waiters In  the  room  while the ring  bad  been circulated, for the dinner was over and the  coffee  served.   A  suspicion 'therefore  arose among those present that it had  been' stolen   by  one of their number.  This   suspicion    showed   itself   to   a  ���������marked  degree in   the  expressions of  those who held It.   The host, who sat  nt one end of the table, and the host-  ^V who snt at the other, looked at  -.ii-h other in dismay.   There was in  lie incident material for a first class  -ciindal.    Then    the    host,    evidently  much moved, said:  "It looks as tbough we had In our  midst a thief, and yet 1 have perfect  rontidence that sucb is not the case.  Nevertheless .every person present Is  under suspicion. That every one may  be cleared of that suspicion I propose  ..that' we each and all submit to be  Kearebed. I will calj In some one who  has not been in the room to do the  wearchlng, one of my own family, who  will have no reason In screening or  convicting any individual. You have  beard my proposition. Let those who  are willing to submit to it say 'Aye.' "  Every one nt the table rose except  Eurle Huxford. a young artist who had  passed his novitiate in Florence, Italy,  und had returned to America for a  short stay. Those present looked at  the young man In astonishment.  "Mr.   Huxford."  said  the  host with  diluted nostrils and dashing eyes, "do  Toil confess yourself a thief?"  "No"  "Then why do you object to clearing  this matter up?"  "I do not care to state my reasons."  Huxforc* sat toying with the stem of  a wineglass. Outwardly at least he  was cool. He did not meet the gaze  of those whose eyes were fixed upon  him. some with indignation, some with  surprise and' some with .contempt  There was a short silence, after which  the host snid to the others:    ~*    -  "1 presume we shall be obliged to  take Mr. Huxford's action as proof of  his guilt, though he virtually pleads  not guilty." Then, turning to the lady  who hud lost the ring, he added. "I  cannot replace your property. Out 1  shall send to a friend in Rome, an  archaeologist, to procure rae the best  substitute he can find that is purchasable at any price."  The lady replied that she did not  hold her host responsible for her loss,  but he insisted that he was responsl  ble and would make it good.  Huxford arose from the table and,  looking at the host, said:  "Under the circumstances I must "ask  your permission to withdraw."  "Madame," said the host to the loser  of the ring, "is it your wish to call  upon the police to regain your ring?"  "Certainly not; 1 would not think of  sucn a thing."  "Very well. Mr. Huxford. You may  withdraw."  All eyes were fixed on Huxford, whc  left the room without turning his buck  to the company, mnking a slight inclination just before passing through the  door. He left a roonifu; of persons influenced by different emotions. Some  blamed the host for permitting him tc  depart without attempting to secure  the ring; some felt that he had nctea  -wisely, but no one expressed an opin  Ion. The episode was discussed In  general terms by the company all taking part except Miss Louise Trover,  who seemed to have been stunned by  belhf an artist, poor ana having lived  hi Rome, knowing the value of the  ring, had yielded to a temptation to  possess It, then had relied on the character of the company not to push the  matter to a disclosure.  The next afternoon while Miss Trover was preparing tp go out she was  surprised to receive a card bearing the  name ot Karie Huxford. She was  about to send an indignant "not at  home" when she abruptly changed her  mind and went down to receive the  visitor. She walked, into the room with  a look on, her face to Indicate thHt Mr.  Huxford under a cloud was not un  acceptable acquaintance.  "Louise"��������� he whs beginning when  she stopped htm.  "Miss Trover, please."  Huxford's face changed. "1 enme  here for an explanation. From your  manner 1 infer that you consider me a  thief. Sueh being the case. I will hot  attempt to remove the Impression, 1  bid you good morning."  The composed mauner that accompanied the words changed that ot the  lady. With a voice that trembled  slightly she snid: ������������������'���������  "Heaven knows how glad I would  be to bear proof of-your' innocence.'  She bad not asked him to be seated,  and wh������������n he spoke again be continued  standing. She, too, remained on tier  feet  "Do   you   remember   when   we   first  met in Florence, while I was copying a  picture Id the/Pitti gallery V" he asked.  "1 do."  "A   young   American   lady   had   just  left me.

"1 was not aware I had a rival."  "Have 1 not just said that you had  not?    Certainly   not In  the   woman A  have mentioned."  ���������'Go on."  "Then when I was able to do so, after our correspondence, i followed you  here."  He paused, seeming to debate in his  mind just wbat to say next; then ne  said abruptly:  "You wish to know where that ring  is?"   .' .   ���������  She looked up at him inquiringly. "I  certainly do."  "If it has not been lost on the way  you will find It in one ol the- folds <>t  tbe gown you wore at the dinner last  evening."   ,.;..  "In my costume?"  "Yes. in yours."  "Why do you say that?"  "Because I saw it dropped there."  The girl stood  as  if stunned  for a  time,  then   suddenly   ran   out  ot   the  room and upstairs.    In a few minutes  she returned   with the ring.    On   tier  face   were   many   thoughts   and   emotions in   confusion,   but   the  one  that  was growing predominant was a consciousness of a  sacrifice  having  been  made to save her from a very trying  position.  "What did yon mean," she exclaimed  almost indignantly, "by admitting tnat  you were a thiet wheii you were���������were  ��������� what were you trying to do anyway?"  "There were several things for me  to do. x'he first was to prevent your  being' found witb the ring In your  dress. You didn't know it was there.  Since I saw. it placed there 1 should  have had to accuse the person who  put it there, and 1 question it 1 would  have been believed. At. any rate, tbe  motives of the person who sought to  vent her vindictiveness upon you  would have necessarily come out"  -. "Who was she?"  "Miss   Sheldon."  "Miss Sheldon! What object had she  to Injure meV"  "Youi dinner companion had sat between you and her, bur had moved to  speak to another lady. Our host was  telling of an adventure be had bad In  the Coliseum Id Home. All eyes were  turned on him. The ring was on the  table near Miss Sheldon. Though i  appeared to be watching the speaker,  half my glance was upon ber. She,  too. pretended to be interested in wbat  was said. Presently she let tall her  hand on tbe ring, then lowered both  beneath the table. When she raided  her hand fhe ring was not in it The  dress you wore, full of folds as It was,  was a convenient receptacle tot stolen  property."  "Who Is Miss Sheldon?"  "One you have dignified with the  name of rival."  There were a few moments of silence between Huxford and Miss Trover. The explanation bad appalled  her. Two emotions struggled within  her���������horror at tbe act ol the woman  who had sought to ruin her ana wonder and appreciation for tbe sacrifice  that had heeD made In her behalf.  Silently she moved toward the artist,  and be clasped her in his arms.  "1 hove beard ot such women," said  Miss Trovei presently, "but 1 did not  KING CF THE ASPS.  Thli  Reptile, the Most Venomous of  8nake������, la Doath ttaslf.  The most venomous of snakes Is said  to be the Echis oarinata of India. It  Is about eighteen Inches long and of fl  gray color. The creature is death Itself and carries In its head the secret  of destroying life with the concentrated agony of all the poisons.  The Echis carlnata is tolerably common In India, being found in nearly  every part of the peninsula.  Fortunately, however,'for man, It la  not. like the cobra, a house frequenting '���������snake,' for Its aggressive habits  would make it infinitely more fatal to  life than its dreaded relative.  This king of the asps does not turn  to escape from man. as the cobra will,  or flash Into concealment, like the ko-  riat, but keeps the path against Its  human assailant and, pitting its own  eighteen inches of length against Its  enemy's bulk, challenges and provokes  conflict.  A stroke with a whip will cut It In  two or a clod of earth disable it But  such Is its malignity that it will invite attack by every device at its command, staking Its own life on the  mere chance of Its adversary coming  within the little circle of its power.  At most the radius of this circle Is  twelve inches. Within it at any point  lies certain death, and on tbe bare  hope of bund or toot trespassing within its reach the Echis oarinata throws  Its body, into n figure of eight coll.  Then It attracts attention by rubbing  its ��������� loops together, which, ��������� from the  roughness of the scales, make a rustling, hissing sound,, erects Its head in  the center and awaits attack.  It Is said that no one. having once  encountered this terrible reptile, can  ever forget Its horrifying aspect when  thus aroused. Its eagerly aggressive  air, its restless coils, which, in constant motion one i over the other and  rustling ominously all the while,  stealthily but surely bring it nearer  and nearer to the object of its fury.���������  Harper's.

The trial takes place before three  judges and ajury, to which are added  a' certain number of extra Jurors, who  are sworn and are present in court to  hear the testimony and are heldready  to take the place in the jury box of  any Juror who may in the course of.  the trial be incapacitated from further  service". The!.- depositions of all the  witnesses have been taken in writing  and sighed before the trial begins.  Each of the Judges has a copy of these  before him. The prosecutor and the  counsel for the accused furnish to the  court a list.of the witnesses they desire called, and these are all summoned by the court, which has power to  punish nonattendance.  The first thing that happens when  the trial begins is the questioning: of  the accused by the presiding Justice.  In Italy.' as in most of continental Europe, a man accused of a crime Is considered by the law to be the very best  witness to his own guilt or Innocence.  In England and America the accused  need not testify unless be chooseB. In  Italy be is the first and most Important witness.  The accused Is allowed the widest  scope In defending himself. He has,  a right to tell his own story in his  own way, to offer anything he can In  the way of Justification or palliation.  Even hearsay evidence is admissible.  ,The Judge has absolute discretion as  to what testimony may be received  and 'what excluded, and any judge  , who exercised this discretion unfairly  would bean object of execration Bias  on the part of one Judge Is possible,  but there are always the ��������� other two  Judges on the bench with him. and  they are a perfect check against unfairness.  When the accused has given his testimony he Is confronted personally  with his accuser. The accuser is necessarily the principal witness against  him. Strictly' speaking, the prisoner  has no right to Interrupt: his accuser  while the latter Is telling his story,  but in practice the Judges permit it.  and the confrontation sometimes becomes a three cornered debate between  accuser, accused and Judge, the latter-  giving the accused the widest leeway  to demonstrate his Innocence.���������Case  and Comment  THE   FL.OCKMASTER.    _^   ������l  Sheep do not "drink much water, but what little they drink  must be clean.

Beneath these  cuts the natives attach small cups to  ca^ch the rubber milk, which is not  the sap of the tree. The average Para  rubber tree yields two ounces of milk  a day. By coagulation in the smoke  of a wood and palm nut fire the milk  yields one-third its weight of the  prized rubber; the normal annual production of a tree being ten pounds of  rubber, and the flow continues fairly  constant for a number of years.  One of the bye-products of rubber  harvesting, and one which promises  extensive development, since planta  tions of these trees have been successful in Sumatra, Ceylon and the Straits  Settlement, is the rubber seed which  yields almost half its weight of' an  oil closely resembling linseed oil, and  adapted to the same uses.  ��������� There are many varieties of rubber  producing trees, vines and shrubs, the  most," valuable species being that  which yields the standard "para," and  which grows over an area of a million  square miles in Brazil alone.  The world production of rubber  during the year preceding the European war was 151,000 tons, of which  Brazil produced 40,000 tons, her nearest competitor, the Dutch East Indies  yielding 8,000 tons.

Lloyd George  He is the Irresistible Driving Power  In Great Britain  When ihere is any work to be done  in England extraordinary hard and  unattractive involving great responsibility, the cry is "Let Lloyd George  do it!" And yet no man in the realm  is more abused. Every crime in the  political calendar is fastened on him.  Old party associates fling the epithet  of traitor at him. If we believe his  detractors he is untrue to his chief  and; concerts with Mr. Asquith's enemies by stealth, revealing cabinet  secrets to them, Mr. Lloyd George'is  accused of abandoning the convictions of a life-time of betraying labor, of grasping'greedily at power, of  cultivating all the vices that honest  men despise in politicians. Of late  a dead set has been made at him by  the. most brilliant pamphleteers who  serve the Liberal party.. .They have  done all in their power to drive him  f-om public life. **  , Mr. Lloyd eGorge has often been  unpopular, and he has always had enemies who exhausted the language of  vituperation in assailing him. As the  most radical of reformers he excited  such bitter hostility that he could  not show his face anywhere without  being reviled. He opposed the Boer  war with speech that enraged Englishmen of every class. His peace  crusade of 1900-2 divided the Liberal  party. Today he is the most aggressive of militants, and there are Liberals who suspect him of plotting to  destroy the coalition cabinet in order  to raise himself to the premiership on  its ruins. His enemies multiply hourly, and they would drag him down if  they could, in spite of his great services to the empire since the entrance  of England into the war.  Among them are sincere men who  believe that he is an unscrupulous and  dangerous politician.'.  It must be admitted that Mr. Lloyd  George when he had an opportunity  at Conway to answer his critics  evaded their gravest charge that he  had conspired with the opposition to  force his own views upon the premier.  But he abused the counsel for the  other side with all his old vigor of  epithet. It is unreasonable to suppose that where there was so much  smoke a little fire crackled? Nevertheless, it was Lloyd^George who was  selected to brin ; order out of chaos  in Ireland and reconcile factions that  breathed slaughter one against the  other; and now again it is Lloyd  George who is regarded as the logical successor of Lord Kitchener to  the post of secretary of state for war.  The explanation of what scheme so  paradoxical is that with all his inconsistency and, vaulting ambition  Lloyd George is recognized as indis-  pcnsible to the empire in its crisis.  He, like Kitchener, realized how titanic was the task Great Britain had  set herself in the war; that it would  last for years, and that all her resources must be mobilized and employed with skill and daring if the  designs of Germany were to be frustrated. Lloyd George is the man who  does things, politics or no politics.  Not another man in the country could  have made such a success of the difficult and delicate work of minister  of munitions. He has no monopoly of  brains in the cabinet, but his is the  irresistible driving power. He may  have thrown overboard principle and  consistency, but it was, in his view,  for the common cause, for the salvation of the empire.���������New York Sun.

A commune corresponds to our  township. In each commune there  has been established under the decree  an agricultural committee consisting  of farmers who are elected by themselves.' The minister's object was to  create "a permanent body composed  of the pick of the farmers belonging  to each rural commune, which body  shall be the centre of action and regulate the general activity." The committees elected consist of'5, 7 or 9  men, according to the 'population of  the district. , The body is entrusted  with the general organization of_farming operations and the overseeing of  the cultivation of the land. Farms  owned by soldiers who cannot cultivate them, are managed by the committee, if necessary. The committees  really are agricultural syndicates,  similar to the co-operative agricultural societies which are doing good  work elsewhere abroad and in parts  of America.  Even before the war French agriculture was strongly organized and  remarkably prosperous. Under the  new decree it will be more efficient  and productive.. In her crisis France  has shown a quickness and logicalness  of mind, a power of imagination and  adaption, and a resource of courage  and will which are the admiration of  all fair observers. She has manifested  a genius for getting at the fundamental thing in a sound, fundamental  way at the right time. _ The general  scheme in accordance with which the  French rural communes have been organized is worthy and capable of  adoption in hundreds of communities  in this country. It is the small, wieldy,  working community unit whicu k>es  things. Organize large units, .fnd  thus eliminate the persona!, neighborhood element,- as an organization  of farmers- becomes impersonal, unwieldy and political. It degenerates  into a mere list of names, which interested officials are apt to use for  political purposes only. The small  rural social unit is being formed'tind  organized in America. Where it has  been developed, and given a fair  chance, it has functioned effectively.  The idea of which it is the concrete  expression will logically and inevitably be adopted by every farming community in which there is a sufficient  population spurred by necessity.  State of Ohio.

A Good Scout  iiifrll!  -A BETE*'  53 'IHE$  Work of the Boy    Scout Movement  Among the Boys of Saskatchewan  . Of many trusts that have been  made in the last half century at superstition and ignorance, the Boy Scout  movement is one of the most effective as it is also one of the most recent.  To be a "good scout" means much  the same thing as it once"meant to  be a noble champion of the lists���������  only ,it means more. The knight of  old had nothing more to fight than  an occasional dragon; he had only to  break into a stone castle to find his  beautiful princess awaiting him. The  scout, however, -has to conquer himself. To speak honorably, to live 'oy-  ally, to" act helpfully, to be friendly  to all, to be discourteous to none, to  o1 ey cheerfully, to .smile and whis. e  in the face of every difficulty, to live  thriftily, to think, speak and act cleanly���������these are the ten commandments  o-" the good scout the energizing precepts of clean living and wholesome  thinking. <���������  That the Boy Scouts of Saskatchewan are "good scouts" who strive to  live up to the ' principles is fully attested by the place they have taken  and are continuing to take in the public service of our country. Though  not a military organization in any  s-nse of the term it is significant th=-t  over 150 scout officers and senior  scouts who were active in boy scout  vork at the beginning of the war are  now on active service.  On account of c.ge, the majority, of  course, have been forced to remain  at home. But ever thtse have striven  to uphold the name of the organization. Some of. the troops have given  the recruiting 'agencies splendid as-  s' tance. Red Cross societies the  country over have had the assistance  of the Boy Scouts in their activitn ���������>.  On many occasions they have acted  as orderl'es at the various functions  under the auspices of Imperial Order  of the Daughters of the Empire. At  the Saskatchewan Grain Growers'  Conventicn held in Saskatoon ia  March thev were much in evidence  acting as guides and messengers.  They themselves by their own subscriptions, by holding concerts and  displays���������one troop by killing gophers  and cleaning stables!���������have raised  during the past year hundreds of dollars for various patriotic causes other  than their own. And so the record  might be written, almost to no end,  of the hundreds of public duties which  have been assumed by the little fellows in khaki.  To make every boy in Saskatchewan a "good scout" is, then, the aim  of the organization which, during the,  past year, has been working in the  province. Ausgustus H. Ball as Provincial Commissioner and Frank C.  Irwin as "Provincial Secretary are the  two men who are giving energy to the  movement, and in spite of difficulties  these men and their many loyal assistants are meeting from day to day, the  province is being thoroughly organized into districts and the boys are  everywhere being made acquainted  with the purposes and aims of the association.  Contrary to a commonly accepted  opinion the organization is not a military one. Indeed, it is opposed to militarism though ifrcsponds to the call  of duty whenever it may be heard. It  is, however, and educational propaganda with the training of the boy's  whole nature as its aim. The great  war of the immediate future is that  struggle for commercial and industrial success which will follow the  present European conflict, one which  will demand leadership, resourcefulness, sterling character, high ideals,  practical minds :vnd honest endeavor.  That war will last for a quarter of a  century and, in the words of Baden-  Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts  organization, "will be won by the  country whose citizens are then the  best equipped in spirit and in ability  to.- the great work." The Boy Scout  movement is an organized endeavor,  to grasp for our growing youth a  great national opportunity.

Canadians Burning  Forests Too Fast  Carelessness With Fire Going to Cost  Canada $7,200,000 More This  Year Than Last  In war time and while many interests are urging thrift and economy,  the Canadian people are burning up  their created resources at a much  greater rate this year than last, is the  statement which appears in a" bulletin  issued by the conservation commission.  For the first five months of 1916  the fire loss in Canada has exceeded  that of January to May in 1915 by  approximately $3,000,000 or $600,000  per month, says the bulletin. At this  rate of increase our fire losses shall  exceed that of 1915 by $7,200,000.  Canada has need of all her financial  resources. She is borrowing money  to carry on the war and is paying five  per cent interest thereon. The additional fire losses of 1916 would therefore pay'the interest charges on the  recent war loan of $100,000,000 ' and  would pay $2,200,000 of the principal.  Canada's average annual fire loss. of  over $23,000,000 would pay five per  cent, interest on - approximately 'hiilf  a billion dollars'? Our fire loss, however, something for which we are receiving no value, either financial or  patriotic ,is simply a tax due in great  part to carelessness which Canadians appear willing to pay and which  they as a whole are doing little to  avert.  SUMMER HEAT  HARD ON BABY  No season of the year is so dangerous to the life of little ones as'.is 'the  summer. The excessive heat throws  the little stomach out of order so  quickly that unless prompt aid' is at  hand the baby may be beyond all  human help before the mother realizes  he is ill. Summer is the season iwhen.  diarrhoea, cholera infantum, dysen-  try and colic are most" prevalent. Any  one of these troubles may prove dead-"  ly if not promptly treated. .During'  the summer the mother's best friend  is Baby's Own Tablets. They regulate tlie bowels, sweeten the stomach  and keep baby healthy. The Tablets  are sold by medicine dealers or by  mail at 25 cents a box from The Dr.  Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville,  Ont  Net Fishing  What the case was about no one  seemed to know exac*'". The lawyers themselves were pretty well mixed up.  Then an'important witness entered;  the box and was  presently asked  to.  tell the  Court the total of his gross  income.  He refused; the counsel appealed to  the judge.'  "You must answer the question,"  said the judge  sternly.  The witness    fidgeted    about    and'  then burst out with:  "But���������but my lord, I have no gross  income. I'm a fisherman, and it's all  net."

Act'will be   used for party, or  rather  machine,  advancement.  One instance: A Liberal runs an  hotel at Trout Lake City.    The  stage leaves there between five  and six in the moaning to catch  the  tug at Beaton   that   connects   with   the   Arrow   lake  boat at Arrowhead.    The hotel  man was up at 4 o'clock to provide breakfast for his guests^be-  fore starting  on  their 13-mile  stage ride.    There  was a constable from  another district in  the party.  He reported the fact  that the hotel  man had his bar  open while guests were paying  for' their lodging.    Fined   $50  and  costs,   or   $60   altogether.  A hotel man at Silverton, vice-  president of the Slocan Conservative   association,  was   more  fortunate.     In a theft case, it  carne  out in  evidence that he  had supplied liquor to persons  in   a room of  his house on a  Sunday at a dollar a flask.    After some strong hints were published, the local  constable laid-  an information, witnesses were  summoned but failed to appear  at trial; constable asked for the  issuance  of warrants  for witnesses and a remand of the case.  Request refused  and case dismissed.

" He who does me once, shame on him;  He who does me twice, shame on me."  POLITICAL POINTERS.  Do   not   make   the   mistake  when you   come   to cast your  vote that you are  deciding any  great national issue, or upholding any great party principle.  Both the party leaders are New  Brunswic politicians.   It is said  that the two principal products  of New Brunswick are potatoes  and   politicians.     It   has   also  been hinted that party  principles in  that province are, like  the other product   mentioned,  for sale   to  he highest bidder.  We   do   know   that   Premier  Bowser ran as an  independent  in  Vancouver   in    the   federal  election of 1896, causing the defeat of Cowan, the regular Conservative candidate, and elect:  ing the Liberal nominee.   Mr.  Brewster may not have jumped  a party or two in his political  career, but this may be due to  opportunity not having knocked  very insistently at his door, and  he is only emerging from the  school trustee state of political  evolution.   Mr. Bowser is premier because he said so, and  none of the thirty odd invertebrates in  the  legislature could  say no without danger of heart  failure; Mr. Brewster is  leader  of the opposition   because  he  wasn't    known,    and   all  the  prominent Liberals in the province were- too well known.   Mr.  Bowser is not the leader of the  Conservatives  in  the province  although he is premier by a self-  manufactured divine right.   He  bluffed his way into the [position  because he was sitting in a game  with a bunch of chubbers.   Mr.  Brewster is the inconspicuous  tool    of   a   bunch   of Liberals  who have a past.  This election is not one of  party, but of men. If the right  sort of men are elected the laws  will be enforced, irrespective of  party. The ward-heelers are  not to blame, but the electors  are. There are constituencies  in this province where such  things could not occur, because  the member would not stand  for it. It is for the electors of  each constituency to decide  on their particular man. He  should have backbone, he should  be able to think straight, and  he should be honest. Neither  Bowser nor Brewster, nor any  other person can walk on men  of that sort.  MONTHLY REPORT  TBat the prohibition act sub-  iftitted to the electors was not  intended to be effective is quite  evident. Had any attempt  been made to honestly enforce  the Licence Act, there would  not have been an insistant demand for prohibition. Like the  Licence   Act,   the  Prohibition  In  the  Similkameen   L.   W.  Shatford and R. S. Conklin are  the  candidates.     Mr.  Shatford  has been a resident of the district   for   upwards   of   twenty  years   and   its    representative  for   thirteen  years.     Thirteen  years  ago   there   were a   few  pieces of wagon  road and   no  railroads in  the   district; now  there are automobile  roads in  every part of the district, and  two  railroads running through  it.    Mr.   Shatford is, of course,  entitled to  some credit foi- the  better roadsandimproved transportation facilities.     Contrast:  Thirteen  years ago, trails and  pack  trains; today, automobile  roads and railroads.   Mr. Conklin has been a  resident  of the  district  for  about seven years  and is reeve  of Penticton.   In  his speech here he did  not outline any scheme to improve existing  conditions.     His  speech  was a criticism  of past acts of  the government,   but   nothing  definite as to  what he intended  to do if elected.    British Columbia is a new  country in its development    stage,    with    vast  natural resourses.    We should  be  more concerned  about the  future than the past.    The past  has   been bad,   very   bad.    In  thirty years successive governments  have  done their utmost  to    make   conditions   a   little  harder for British   born   residents of the province, until now  the  only people who are taxed  are  those who   are  trying   to  make homes here.    Those who  come here for a few years to-"  make a stake and then go back  to Europe  or Asia,  receive all  the  privileges  without assuming any of the responsibilities  of citizens or paying any taxes.  We  need  representatives  who  think British, with British ideals  and  with a definite policy for  the future that will  guarantee  to the British  settler and British  workman  at least an even  chance with the foreigner.   We  need  men who will endeavor  H<jdley Patriotic Fund Committee  The Hedley Patriotic Funds  committee submit the following  report covering collections made  for the month of June.
