Mr.  R. W. Bowen, Keremeos Center,  took the chair and "delivered an  appropriate1.speech on' the subject.    He was followed by the  Rev, F. Stanton  of Keremeos,  who received warm applause at  the  conclusion   of his address.  R.

POLITICAL POINTERS.  What  the  George   Washingtons  Saying They  Will  Do���������  and, Will Not.  Nine or ten years ago,' during  a political  campaign, the Victoria   Colonist   discovered   the  mining districts   of   Yale   and  Kootenay, through the medium  of    its    representative,    R.   J.  Burd.    Although Mr. Burd was  sent  to furnish   political dope,  occasionally in his writings the  fact  would  obtrude  itself that  hundreds  of thousands of tons  of rock carrying  paying quantities  of gold, silver, zinc, lead  and  copper were being mined  and  treated  annually in South  Eastern British Columbia. Since  then the Tories of Victoria have  known  that minerals were being extracted "along the Dewd-  ney  trail."    It is possible that  the mineral wealth of Yale and  Kootenay will  be  rediscovered  during this campaign, and this  time  the  Grits  of the Capital  City may  possibly be enlightened.    With Messers. Brewster  and Macdonald is a representative of another palaeozoic publication, the Victoria Times, and  we  may confidently hope that  through vast amount the political  verbiage  will   filter   some  inkling  of our mineral wealth  local   Libsral ' association   was  chairman.     The   first   speaker  -was R. S. Conklin, Liberal candidate for the district. He spoke  briefly, saying he  would again  visit Hedly before  election day  when he would go  more  fully  into   public   questions.     M.  A.  Macdonald ^of  Vancouver   was  the   next speaker.      Mr.   Macdonald kept   his   audience   interested   for   nearly   an   hour.  A   logical    speaker,   he  brings  his facts, or alleged  facts, out  clearly.   "He  dealt   principally  with the financial policy of the  government,  pointing out that  instead   of   retrenchment,   the  the provincial debt was increasing yearly without any attempt  being   rnade; to    develop    the  natural resources of the' province.  He also-criticized the railway policy of the government.  Mr." H. C. Brewster,'the leader of  the  opposition, would'do well  to adopt'as far as possible Mr'.'  Macdonald's style.    Often in attempting to arrive at a conclusion  he jack-rabited   over,  the  ground- until vhis  audience lost  the  hypothesis,  the   reasoning  and the conclusion in a jumble  of    unnecessary   phrases   and  words.    Howevei",   people   will  not  think' less  of the man for  not  being  able  to   talk  like a  lawyer.   In his speech of nearly  an  hour,  Mr. Brewster did not  make a statement that eould be  questioned.     He devoted considerable time to the land  monopolies  in   the   north, and   to  the  "plugging"   in  Vancouver.  The    meeting .concluded   with  cheers for Brewster, Macdonald  and Conklin.  c j-f    ���������*V-*j;t5/J  ':fl  1 i..������  ' -it.

BRITISH TRADITIONS  AND CUSTOMS  DEFIED.  Prohibition  Act  Proposes  to  Introduce Methods  Which Are  Distinctly   Un������British.  Friday last L. W. Shatford  was in Hedley on a preliminary  canter of the district and called  at The/Gazette office. Mr. Shatford bases his claim for the support of the electors on what he  has done to encourage development in the district by roads,  trails, bridges and railroads,  and this contention would appear to be correct from the fact  that the opposition speakers at  Tuesday's meeting here held  practically the same views in  regard to the work of Mr. Shatford. He will hold a public  meeting here about the 15th,  when he expects the premier  and some of the other cabinet  ministers to speak  Tuesday afternoon there was  a large crowd in Fraternity hall  to hear H. C. Brewster, M. A,  Macdonald and R. S. Conklin.  G. McEacliern, president of tho  British traditions and customs  which have been established for  centuries, and which are dear to  the heart of every Britisher, as  they represent in him the very  foundation of that Government,  which he believes to be the freest on the face of the earth, are  thrown to the ground and  trampled in the dust by the B.  C. Prohibition Act, This phase  of the referendum lefislation on  which the electors' will vote on  Sept. 14th should be carefully  investigated by every loyal  British subject.  A fundamental principle of  the private life of every Britisher is that "A man's home is his  castle," and the sentiment expressed this motto is dear to the  heart of every man who enjoys  the protection of the British  flag. The B. C. Prohibition Act,  without the slightest regard for  this and dearly cherished right  of the subject, sets this principle  absolutely at naught, and  tramples it under foot. Clause  48 of the Act provides that any  officer of the law, provincial or  local, may, at any time and  without a warrant, forcibly  break into the home of any citizen if he has the merest information of tlie least idea that  the occupant of the house possesses liquor. Not only may he  break into the home, but, having entered, he''may forcibly  break open any closet, chest,  box or receptacle in the home.  The question as to whether  such methods are in accordance  with British traditions and custom will be answered at once by  one lihtle word which contains  only two letters.  Another fundamental rule of  British life is that when a man  is attacked through the process  of law he has the right to know  who is behind the prosecution.  This just and time-honored custom is absolutely thrown overboard by clause 29 of the Prohibition Act. This provides that  when  any person gets the idea  British,   but- also   a   rahV, in,  justice.  \     -'       '      -'", :"v, >  "r '���������' .<  Only a few of the  un-British*  provisions   of this counterfeit!, -  Prohibition Bill'are enumerated '  above.', It is believed, however, ,  that  the  mention pf these few.  instances ��������� will arouse  the electors to a sense of their duty as  loyal  subjects,  true to  British  traditions and customs,  to such  an extent as will cause them to'  closely investigate the" Act.-   In  order that full .opportunity may  be pi ven along  this   line,   the ;  Merchants' Protective .Association has issued'a bopkTet" which'  contains the full text of the Prohibition-Act.

'Minard's   Liniment  used  by   Physicians.  Sow the Best Seed  Seed Selection Pays the Grain Grower  Every Time  Every     intelligent    farmer    in this  country   has    learned   in   the    cosily  school  of  experience   that it  pays to  sow  or plant  only  the  best  of  seed.  The  cost of  cultivating,   seeding and  harvesting  is   practically    the    same  whether    poor  seed or good    seed is  used,  and the  difference between the  cost   of  poor  seed   and   good   seed  is  comparatively   small   when   coinpaied  with   the    investment    made   in   the  above  operations.    Willi  a good seed  bod  the returns from  low grade seed  wheat of doubtful  germinating qualities   as  compared     with   the    returns  from   the  very   choicest    wheat    will  often   be  from   ten  to  fifteen  bushels  per acre and frequently more.  Seager  Wheeler has done more  to  show the  benefit   of   seed   selection   than   probably any other man  in  this country,  r-'or over   twenty years     ho lias been  selecting   the   best  from   his   growing  crop every year and from the progeny  of this carefully selected seed  he has  again selected the best, with the result  that on his test plots he has produced  as high as eighty bushels per acre of  Marquis wheat.    It is not possible to  bring every farm up to the high pitch  of cultivation and make every 'farmer  a   specialist in    seed  selection    or to  bring the average yield  of wheat up  to   eighty   bushels   per   acre.     But it  would seem leasonable to expect that  the   average     might   be    brought  far  above  seventeen  to nineteen  bushels  per acre, which  was the rule prior to  the  extraordinary    crop    of 1915.    It  should be remembered that the methods adopted by Scager Wheeler which  have enabled  him  to  win the world's  championship with his Marquis wheat  on three different occasions, and winch  enabled  Paul Gerlach of Allan, Sask.,  to   win  the  world's  prize  on  one occasion, can bo followed by any fanner  of   ordinary intelligence.    These  men  have done no wheat  breeding.    Thoy  have only  taken the  best thoy could  find and year by year selected the best  from   the   best.     Many   farmers   feel  that   they  cannot   afford   the  time  to  put   in   a   quarter   acre   of   carefully  selected seed  and maintain this quarter  acre  plot year  after  year for the  pioducMon of banc! selected seed. But  if  thoy  were  to  figure  carefully    the  benefits   which   might   reasonably   be  derived from 100 to-200 acres of wheat  produced from this selected seed, thoy  would find that in dollars and cents  (he investment would  be a good one.  Seed selection carried oh in this manner tor a matter of five years  would  raise the quality as well as the quantity of wheat produced on every acre  of the farm and  the increase in cash  returns would  be a huge dividend on  the time and money spent in preparing a half bushel of seed from it each  year.     Tho.   Canadian   Seed   Growers'  Association is doing excellent work in  this direction and merits   much more  widespread   support   than   it   receives  in this country.

Tho North Sea skippers  seem stern and taciturn, whereas tho  West countrymen, mostly Devonshire  men, seem genial; 'loquacious. All  are, however, delightfully independent  and express their views on things in  general in a manner which makes  naval officers tremble for the discipline of the service. They love to  criticize everything. Tho skipper of  a trawler never will admit that any  officer in the navy is a real seaman.  They will stoutly maintain that seamanship is a lost art, which can now  only be found among themselves, and  they love to hold forth on the handling  of great battleships as they make their  way into narrow harbors or take up  difficult anchorages,* pointing out how  much better they could have done tho  job themselves.

good word for the English must be

come of blood which has fought the
Biiiish twice and would again for the

they have done rather than by the

Then in  two  months - the    British
I-sad - lost more   killed   and    wounded

���while every demand of Jellicoa's had

Though , the   British   had   supposed
that their part was to command the
tiea,   three   million   volunteered    to
(<-ioss the Channel or go farther ovcr-

thing  from  volunteering  to   fight  in
your own country against an invader.

Losses of Pigs
Valuable     Information   on   the     Care
and   Handling of  Pigs
A severe winter is usually followed
by reports of - heavy losses of young
pigs. This year is no exception to the
rule. Mr. W. !���'...Stevens, .'Provincial
Live Stock Commissioner for Alberta,
has visited.a number of farms from
which reports of this kind have come.
Although he docs not claim to have
discovered the precise cause in every
instance, he. does not hesitate to
classify the causes, in""the- majority
of cases, under the following headings:
Farrowed in February.���The losses
among pigs,farrowed in February arc,
as a rule, heavy. In seasons when
the weather is as cold as it-was during last February the losses are particularly heavy. This fact alone would
account for many deaths.
Little Light and Less Ventilation
in Pens.���Animals confined- within
poorly lighted and ill /ventilated housings cannot thrive, and young animals cannot develop strength nor
resist disease in such places. Pneumonia doubtless "caused most,.of the*
deaths among the parly farrowed animals that were thus cared for.
Feeding the clam too heavily after
was relatively cheaper than oats last
winter, and many farmers yielded to
fhe temptation to feed it" to their
brood sews. Barley develops fat but
not bone and muscle. Bone and
muscle, but not faf. are what the
young animal requires in order-, to
enable it to avoitl danger and keep
from being laid on and suffocated in
the nest.
Feeding the.dam to heavily after
fai rowing.���The. swine grower who
likes to feed liberally is usually a
heavy loser froni '.'thumps." Feeding
the sow heavily on heating'foods, par-
ticulaily barley, wheat, rye,'or spelts,
and keeping her confined in a pen is
likely to result in "thumps" among
the young pigs. Turn the sow out.
feed a thin.slop of ground oats, and'
provide succulent feed . or roots or
green forage of some kind.
Sows had frozen teats.���Some swine
growers wont to the opposite extreme.
They fed their sows out of doors during the coldest of \veather. In many
cases' they had, to wade through snowdrifts when going from - the nesting
place to the feeding ground.- - The
result was that some of them'froze
their teats and worn theiefore unable
to suckle their young, which died of
Swine growers who have suffered
losses of young*pigs should write to
the Department of Agriculture. Edmonton, and ask for a copy of live
stock pamphlet entitled "Preparing
for the Pig Crop." also paniDhlet entitled  "The Suckling Period."
Wireless Danger Signals for Trains
A curious invention is being shown
at tho 1916. exhibition of the National
Railway, Appliance. Association in Chicago for controlling trains by wireless.
Danger signals are flashed to the
train by" a touch on a key. The wireless, worked in connection with an
.automatic speed control, applies.the
air hakes automatics.Jy, whether the
engineer sees the signal or not, and
rod noes the speed, to the desired maximum.
The word "clove." is from the Latin
\"elnvu9." meaning n. nail, cloves being
like  nails in appearance.
Less Acreage Sown
The   Dominion   Government   Estimate
of  Land  in  Wheat  Less Than
Last    Year
A bulletin issued by the census and
statistics office gives the usual preliminary estimate of the areas sown
to grain crops and the condition of
those crops as reported by correspondents on May 31. The reports
show that the spring this year is
late, and that heavy rains throughout
the Dominion have in many places
made it difficult to work tlie land.
In Eastern Canada seeding at the end
oi May was considerably behind hand.
"According to the preliminary estimates of correspondents, made in
many instances before the completion
of seeding, wheat in Canada this year
���will occupy a total area of 11,491.600
acres. This is 1,494,800/ acres, or J1.5
per cant., below the high record of
last year, when 12,986.4(10 acres were
harvested, but J,197.*00 acres, or ll.G
per cent., above the harvested area
of 1914, which wi>s 10.293,900 acres.
The area to be harvested of fall wheat
for 1916 is 1,042.200 acres, leaving fhe
area estimated to be sown fo spring
wheat as 10,449.400 acres. Tu the three
noi thwest provinces the area sown to
wheat is estimated at 10,471.200 acres,
as compaied with 11.744,700 acres, tho
area of*915. and with 9,335,400 acres,
tlie harvested wheat area in the northwest provinces for 1914. Tn Manitoba
the area sown to wheat for 3970 is
placed at 2,904,400 acres, as compared
with" 3,342,900 acres last year; in Saskatchewan it is 5,880,100. acres, as
against'6,838.100 acres, and in Alberta
J,677,700 acres, as against 1,563,700
acres.    .
It is estimated that the area devoted to Oats for 1916 is 10,499,500
ucres, as compared with 11,365.000
acres in 1915. This is a diminuafion
of 805,500 acres, or 7.6 per cent., as
compared . with last year,- but an increase of 438,000 acres or 4.3 per cent.,
as compared with 10,OCT.500 acres, the
area harvested in-1914.. The area sown
'to. barley is estimated - nt 1,317.500
acres, as against 1,509,350 acres a year
ago, the areas sown to other grain
crops being as follows:

made a study of fhe .-oul of the soldier. It is a' great subject for the
pbyschologist and one that opens a
mine, of valuable information.
'"The troops receive orders at night
to prepare for a charge the next morning. The first thought is, is this real?
Somehow, it, seems like a dream. It
is the'same thought that stirs the soul
in any great event in life, be it one
of joy. or one of sorrow. It does not
seem real.
' "However, when the soldier does'
realize that it is no nightmare, ho begins to think of the likelihood of death
claiming him in that battle." A strange,
indescribable fear bcginls to agitate
the soul." The awful 1 bought pesters
hini that he will go to his death and
leave home and loved ones and everything that is dear in a. moment of
lime He-ponders over the subject of
immortality and wonders if death
comes whether it will mean eternal
darkness and annihilation.
"To one who is in the prime of life,
who has everything to live for/ hell
iiself cannot offer torture to equal the
terrorizing doubts that assail the soul
in those dreadful moments before a
battle. '    ' -
"Then, too, the thoughts come that
we have not made the most of life;
that there is so much which we would
still like to do; that if only given the
opportunity how different we would
shape our life in the future.-
"All night long the troops move to
the front, and all"night long-wc think
of God and the uncertainty lhat lies
directly before us.    .
"Morning comes. Tt is a most beautiful morning; the sun shining'warm
and bright. The notes of a German
song are -wafted on the still air. It
is a song' of the Fatherland and all
join in the choius. It is then that
we forget all our doubls and fears.
A new life seems to be born within
us. All fear has vanished and we are
ready to go down to the gates of death
" "And then the battle. The- builets
began to whistle. In those fiist moments every soldier naturally looks
for some sheltered place for protection. Nevertheless, the soul is remarkably calm. Though comrades are falling on all sides we never for a moment think of being hit by a bullet
ourselves. "We keep on running, running toward the enemy. All feeling,
all thought, all emotion, all sensation
is obliterated. In the crash and,thunder of artillery we go on, fearing nothing. Occasionally we hear a voice uttering a cmse or a threat, due to hate
against the enemv, born anew in the
thick of battle. That feeling of hate
becomes uppermost. "We aro seized
"with -a frenzy of rage, and our one
thought is to meet the enemy face to
face and annihilate him. As this
hate is mingled with" a coitain feeling
of patriotism and love for the Fatherland, the lust of battle is developed
in such a mnnncr as to quiet our
neives and forget all about danger and
"The battle has been fought and
won. The soul experiences an indescribable peace, but when we begin to
see our broken ranks and make'ebunt
of our fallen comrades painful sensations follbw/. Then only do we'realize
what danger wo so callously faced,
and a wave of thoughtfulness warms
our blood and body.
"The feelings and sensations on
emerging frotn a battle are like those
of convalescence from a serious illness. The tired soul longs for peace-
and rest, and the soldier falls into a
deep, sound, dreamless sloop, in which
all the fear and stress and "storm of.the
time are forgotten."

What's in a Name
Berlin is one of the thriving towns
of the Province of Ontario, Canada,
and a largo, proportion of its citizens
are of German descent. The war fever
seems to have affected fhe minds of
the people of.'that Province and they
purpose to call Berlin by some other
name. Berlin seonis to be loyal
enough and the. rest of the country
should let it alone. : If the. entente
allies should reach Berlin' on the
Spree and march down Unter don Linden every town and city in' Canada
would envy the possession of the name
Berlin. All over Canada are towns
and townships bearing names .that
commemorate British victories, such
as Sweaburg, .Alma. Blenheim. Waterloo, etc.. not f;ir from Berlin, Ontario.
Berlin should hold onto ifs name until the end of the war. It might bo

The Expensive Married Man
One of. the most difficult points for
the government is to balance tho value
of a married man .recruit against his
value as a taxpayer. Every married
recruit means, in addition to his upkeep by the Stale, an allowance for
his family and relief at government
expense to moot his rent, insurance
and other liabilities, and at the same
time a direct diminution of the national revenue by the amount of his
income tax, apart from his other contributions to the labor and , wealth of
the country.���London Daily Mail.
H is notKoabl", in all the Ameuean
(nbutos p.ud to Kitchonoi, by Theodore Roosevelt, Gen. Leonard Wood
former Ambassador Choate. and many
others, that it was Kitchener's "work
in Empire-building lhat chiefly torn-,
manclod their admiration. Kitchener's
share of the "white man's burden" in
^'gypt, Africa and India is the outstanding note in their tributes.
Another notable tribute was paid
Kitchener in Hie parliament of United
Soufh Africa, whore the members
stood in silence while Premier Botha",
in a few-words expressing great admiration and respect for the man who, a
few years ago was the leader of the
British armies in tho conquest o*
South Africa,'moved the adjournment
of the House. It will be remembered
that immediately - after peace was
signed at Pretoria,. Kitchener sent p.
lhessnge to tiie Boers .expressing his'
admiration for their gallantry am?
bravery in .the-long war.
The Chicago-Daily News, in an appreciative article, on the "day of his
death, recalled an interview Kitchener gave while in.Chicago some years
ago. In this Kitchener expressed fhe
view fhat tho want of food and .the
necessity of importing it" was the
chief factor in making war: The nation which had not sufficient supplies
of food of its own,- he pointed out.
was continually gazing with ,envious
eyes upon the nations which had. As
a lover of peace, he said, he had
noticed with great'pleasure the vast
fields of grain in the middle west, and
took-equal pleasure from "the fact that
across the boundary, in Canada, there,'|"
were possibilities of equally great
production of foodstuffs.
Roosevelt's tribute is worth quoting:
"Six years ago I passed through
the Soudan and was more deeply impressed than I can well express by
fhe extraordinary benefits secured to
the natives of the country by Lord
Kitchener's conquest "and the administration' of himself and of his lieuten
ant. and successor. Gen.. Wingate.   -
"He rescued it from a condition of
chronic slaughter nnd rapifie. under
.which the -population diminished by
considerably more than half, and of
the younger children oyer nine-tenths
died of disease or starvation. The
.result of the*,conqucst was to establish
absolute peace and justice under tho
orderly  reign  of law.
"Industry flourished amazingly,
slavery and the oppression of weaker
tribes were completi ly -abolished;
schools were, established eveiywhere
and the Soudan entered upon a"career
of peace, prospeiilj- and justice, which
it has never before known in its
history."���Regina   Province.
Canadian  Red> Cross  Has  Been  Working Hard to Comfort Men
Nearly 49,000 parcels have been sent
lo date by the Canadian Red Cross
to sick and' wounded Canadian soldiers in the various hospitals. The
contents oi the parcels were not chosen
at Kindom, but were accoiding to each
man's request.
A recent list includes newspapers
foilel articles, mirrors, pipes, tobacco,
socks, soft boots, canvas shoes, pens,
books, sweaters, khaki shirts, underwear, flowers, mouth organs, playing
cards and candies.
"Comfort bags," as these parcels
have become known, have achieved
such fame among the soldiers as fo
cause some times an embarrassing demand. Most of the articles thus sent
out come in generous measure ' from
the Red Cross branches in Canada.
Others are purchased with -.money
which comes here as thanks .olfering
or marked especially to-be'devoted to
piovision of comforts. . This takes no
account of the huge numbers of news-*
papers sent to Canadian troops, which
are forwarded with unstinted liberality from all parts of Canada. There it
just- now, however, a> shortage ot
papers from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Kingston.
A protest-has-just come in t from
some men against a present of chevying gum which, they found, although
it came from Canada; had been made

of it and now sigh'for the real Canadian article.

The , Australian Premier
The indomitable Labor prime minister of Australia has certain qualities
which are rare in British public life.
He has courage; he has firmness, he
has eloquence. He is not blessed with
obsolete formulas; he does not live in
the frigid artificialities, of the House
of Commons: he knows his own mind
and he is not a moral mo 11 use of a
political limpet. His deeds and his
speeches have touched the people of
this country by their force and splendour. They have shown him to be as
much in earnest as our ministti-s arp
faint-hearted and as simple as they
are pompous and long-winded. He
always speaks straight to the heart.
He does not put off till tomorrow what
should be done today, and earlier in
this war he set a great example to the
home government by shattering the
influence of Germany in Australia.���

��� > Fire Escape for Horses
A large packing concern across the
border has installed an automatic
means for opening the doors of its
hcise stabiu which allows the horses
to -escape.-'at. any time of the day or
night if there is danger of fire. The
.device is operated in much the same
manner as an automatic sprinkler.
When the temperature in the stables-
rises to a certain point a weight is
icleased which falls on a lover that
in turn releases all the doors simultaneously. At the same instant certain noises "-arc made mechanically
which frighten the horses from their
places. The releasing lever is occasionally operated by. hand 'to give the
horses a fire '.drill. Each horse soon
learns to trot .-from its stall when the
door opens and  the alarm sounds.

Cost  of  Paper  and   'Material     Makes
Higher   Prices   Necessary
-Ahhough everyone is ready to admit that the cost of living has materially increased during the last fifteen
or twenty years, ' some 'publishers
complain that many of their subscribers cannot understand 'why rates
should be increased-and business men
are asking why prices of job work
should be advanced.
The present critic.il condition in the
paper market and the increase in the
price of ink and practically all kinds
of-printing" material due to fhe war
in Europe.is cutting .heavily into the
profits .of publishers. - and higher
prices must be' secured if they would
make ends meet. -
One "day last week 'a man came to
open up a subscription. When he
found the price to be $1.50 he said,
"I have never paid more, than a dollar, and if you won't, fake fhat yon
can-go without." We did. About the
same time a business man called to
order printing stationery. He was
told that increased prices of paper
would make the' difference of about
ten per cent. "Don't want, it," he
said, "ironically, "that is a pure holdup." He had to have the paper, and
paid over a dollar extra to get it from
a pi inter mail order house. The first
of the week we ordered a special color
of ink that last fall was priced at
$3.00 a pound. It, costs us now" .$4.50
a pound. We bought a lot of special

However, the term elegant embraces a large number of them  and tells in a nutshell how wonderful the  wraps are. In this day of variety and attention to personal requirements every  woman should have a becoming evening  wrap for the summer dance or other festivity formal enough to be held after the sunset hour. While it may not be possible to  spend exorbitant sums on the wraps, it is  quite possible for the clever sewer to make  very stunning ones at home.  In the model showing the use of quaint  ribbon quilling there is a "skillful introduction of a Watteau pleat at the back.   It  r  falls in a straight line from beneath the  capelike yoke, which is an essential feature  of the garment. The robins-egg-blue  satin is the material used for the wrap. The  same color is introduced cm the hat, which  is quaintly gray. .  Have you ever been Impressed with  the rich effect gained by stitching? Here  you see its effectiveness carried but in a  purple stitched band gracing an apricot-  colored taffeta wrap.   The stitched design  forms bands for the cuffs as well as a trim-  niing for the back. Notice how cleverly  the sleeves have been cut to form shoulder  capes ?  ,The model showing a wise use of satin  and chiffon bands should instill a desire in  the economic woman's heart to set to and  make one just like it The chiffon and satin  are old rose in color and are subdued by  the appearance of a deep chinchilla collar.  Wide ribbon might be substituted for the.  satin bands, if one desires.  Recalling days of long ago is a  sumptuous wrap of lavender. The upper  part of the coat and the sleeves are of taffeta. The rest is chiffon. The rows and  rows of quilled and fringed taffeta give the  garment an old-fashioned aspect.  Marabou is claiming a great deal of  attention this season, so one cannot gather  together a number of stunning wraps with-  c  out including one trimmed with marabou. It  is very artistically used in a brown shade  on a coat of old-gold faille. The soft feathery trimming forms a comfortable cape collar, and in band, effect gives a billowy  finish to the bottom of the garment.  &��������� Any woman should look charming in  one of these splendid affairs."  /fates <3%zct  ^7 /?42/f(f<9U .*^t1TM.^iX-.*.l>^W^fi>;\v*:..U.*.V'

Anarchists for France
War to   End War is Hope of Strange
Germany not only made the Apaches
disappear from Paris; she also transformed all anarchists into patriotic
frenchmen. As a matter of fact, practically every known anarchist turned
patriot not unwillingly, but with the
greatest enthusiasm. A Paris paper
began to investigate what had become
of the anarchist leaders and found that
with the exception of those too old
to be accepted even as volunteers,
they  were  all  in the  trenches.
One of them, iormerly a professor
and a champion of the most Violent
anarchistic doctrines, wrote the following letter from a trench in the Ar-
gonne, in which he has won promotion
for himself by exceptional bravery:
"There have been moments when 1
have asked myself why am I here,
and-I have answered: First, because
1 had to go; but, later on, because I
realized that it was my duty, and now
nothing but death or victory will make
"It was a lucky horse that voyaged I ���e fluit-   * have won promotion and

from farm to steamboat in less than

in stables, markets, stockyards and
concentration camps, is a low estimate
of the cost. Turned out in pens such
as are used at our Chicago stockyards,
the horses would require for comfortable housing'37,500, pens. With the
necessary alleys, feed barns, hay sheds
and railroad facilities,, these pens
would cover a ground floor area a
mile in width by two miles in length
J,���-a space twice as large .as the Union
' Mock Yards of Chicago, which'accom-
modates   506,000  animals   of  different

"Placed side by side in one long
row of comfortable single stalls the
war horses would ' stretch from Chicago's city limits to Grand' Island,
Neb. In marching order, close formation, the 300,000 cavalry and 2-
500 full batteries of 180 horses each,
would reach from Chicago to- Boston:

Before. Peace Comes
Allies' Peace Must be For the Future
Security^ the World
It is a self-evident truth that the
Allies could not call off the war, even
with everything restored to the same
basis as existed before August, 1914,
without leaving themselves open to
exactly such another general assault
as was hurled against them twenty-
two months ago.
France might be restored, Belgium
might be returned, Poland might be
redeemed and Serbia recreated. But
unless the military machine which had
done the damage in the first instance
were smashed they could feel no assurance that the same thing would not
be done to them over again. Failing
the smash of that military machine
there would be nothing left for them
to do but proceed with all possible
dispatch to build up around the Central powers a series of great military
machines with which to meet the next

A Reuter despatch from Berlin says
that in the discussion in the reichstag
of the war credit, Count von Rodern,
secretary of the imperial treasury,
stated that the monthly war expenditure from January to May was some-
.��� under 2,000,000,000 marks, and,
that the new credit would cover the
probable requirements for six months.
He added that France's expenditure
was almost as high as Germany, while
Great Britain's was half as much
"The confidence of the German nation in its own strength," said the
secretary, "has enabled us to raise

ftThe  Business  Farmer  Does  Not Take

everything used in cultivating the
land, in the -open field all winter
with' no other covering except that
provided by nature, a few inches of
snow. This way certainly gave the
farmer a minimum amount of trouble.
'It ' was easy to unhitch the horses
from the plow and give no more

Prairie Fires Started Through Neglect
of   Ordinary   Precautions
Fire Commissioner J. K. Wilson, of
Saskatchewan, "referring, in .his report
for the last quarter of 1915, to -the
losses by prairie fires, says:
"Much of the waste caused by the
destructive prairie fire may be charged
to those who, in travelling across the
prairie, carelessly throw away a lighted match, cigar or cigarette or leave
a camp fire not extinguished. The
careless thresher leaves live coal
around his engine when closing down

that a high' wind sprang up during

Co-operation .between the farmer and
the business man has not always been
in evidence. Indeed a spirit of enmity 'seems to exist between them in
many parts of the country, as if one
was the natural prey of the other. This
should not be the case: Under our
present system of commerce the business man or merchant is.as necessary
to the-farmer as the farmer is to the
merchant. By working together with
a mutual understanding the interest
of each would be safeguarded. Other

Attitude of Theologians
The -greatest tragedy of this war is
the incomprehensible attitude of German theologians and teachers regarding the brutal and immoral methods
by which their country carries on
war. Forty years ago Paul de Legarde,
one of the chief moulders of German
thought, wrote: "In the year 1518 the
standard of faith was the Bible; in
the year 1871 it became the State."
The result is seen today in {lie inability of Germans to understand the horror and contempt with which their'
conduct throughout the war is viewed
by the Allied nations and by neutral
countries. " It is- the most appaling
example in the history of a highly
educated people, under the tutelage
of the state, turning its back deliberately on the moral standards that
have regulated human conduct since
the earliest dawn of civilization. Impregnated with the crude materialism
of the state, which asserts the claim
to override the laws of God and man,
the German church-has degenerated
into paganism. With it Christianity
can make no' peace.���Toronto Globe.
suit of carelessness is that hundreds
of settlers are deprived of their homes
and crops, while.some are penniless
and dependent upon the community
for assistance to tide them through
the winter.
_ "The person who starts a prairie
fire through carelessness or neglect
should be severely punished. Such
a measure surely would educate people to be more careful.     "    .
"Personal responsibility for fires
has attracted much attention, especially among those who are interested
in fire prevention and protection. In
some' countries this principle has
already,"been adopted in law, and the
person who is responsible for the fire
is held liable for the loss of the individual affected. This manner of dealing with the individual who, through
his own carelessness or neglect, causes
his neighbor to suffer, should be a
big step toward the decrease of the
enormous and avoidable fire waste."

Poverty Amid   Plenty
An   English   traveller   writes
(hotels   in  Russia  are    greatly , UVci-
crowded by refugees from Poland and
the other   'war zones, and    the wise
traveller is he who engages rooms at
least a week beforehand, and, if possible,  through friends.    In  Petrograd
it is apparent that the supply of food
as well as of fuel is irregular, and in
, many cases insufficient. This is most-

of transporting it from the often remote places seem to be almost insurmountable.

Main German Purpose
Many  do   not  yet  realize   that  the
main   feature   of   the   battle   was   not
the sinking of  the  vessels  that  were
lost,  or   the  chasing  of  the   German
fleet back to port, but in the prevention of their design, whatever it may
have been, in their enterprise to the
northward.    It is,morally certain that
the intention' was to get a number of
raiding cruisers loose in the Atlantic.
It  is  difficult  to  estimate  what  the
result of success in this would have
meant.   British commerce of all kinds,
would have been demoralized, and in
addition,  in  order  to  round  up  the
raiders,   a   large   number   of   vessels
would  have been  taken  out of their
present service to capture or destroy
the raiders.   This would have had the
effect of breaking up the present ranks
of the navy and weakening the forces
in the North Sea opposed to the main
German fleet. All of-which would have
been   decidedly  serious,   and  its   prevention  constitutes   the  most notable
immediate  result  of  the  battle.���Toronto World.
Educated Town Ladies For Farms
Lord Selbourne is certain that
hundreds of farmers can be released
for the front by a larger rally of competent women workers for farms. One
of the drawbacks to his contention is
the lack of accommodation for women
at the farms.
��� In speaking on the subject he made
an appeal���first for more women. He
said that .the ladies that played tennis in the suburbs of London were
among the most virile in England, and
he thought their splendid powers
should be brought into the service of
the country at this hour, and he appealed to squires, clergymen, and
others to billet such as would apply
to work farms from that class of society.

As to the possibility of peace, I

other agreed to thi3: "If, we men

":According to estimates recently published, in The Calgary - News, -there, is
"entfupi soft coal in the four western
provinces of Canada    to  supply   the
world for a couple of centuries.   The
mines of  Saskatchewan,  Alberta and
British Columbia have scarcely been
tapped as yet, and  have produced a
total in one year of around 6,000,000
tons, with a value of over $25,000,000.
The Alberta and Saskatchewan coalfields���which are having a big development���it   is   said,   can   s.upply   the

centuries to come.    The coal is of a
very  good  grade  and  is  equally serviceable for steam purposes and household heating.    Steps have  also been
taken -to generate    cheap     electrical
power  by   establishing   power   plants

Revision of School Supplies

A.,    D.   Paed,    Regina)
In connection with the popular, nonpartisan, province wide, campaign for
Better Schools, inaugurated by Premier Scott, and W. B. Willoughby,
leader of the Opposition in Saskatchewan Legislature, a large and widely
representative . committee of teachers
and other friends of education was ap-
appointed some time ago by the government to make ^recommendations
regarding the revision of the courses
of studies for public and high schools.
This committee held its first formal
meeting in the Legislative Chambers,
Regina, on June 2. An important preliminary discussion took place and
sub-committees were appointed to
make special studies of the high school
continue to strengthen the measures -whi'ch we have already taken,
this  difficulty   remains  the   same.
"You will probably agree that while
we are justified-in destroying "the commerce of Germany, it-is equally true
that we jnust-respect' the rights of all
neutral countries, if 'we do not want
to sink perilously near to the level
of Germany in the eyes of the civilized

fact that we are fighting for our national existence, we also remember
that we are also fighting for the existence of civilization, and .we may,
while exercising our rights as. belligerents, very well' apply*"the principles

rendered necessary by modern conditions to ensure the efficiency of the

-While on a hunting trip ���'through
Canada last summer a New York clubman met a quaint character; This
man was of French extraction and he
was very proud of a friend of his in
New York, one Gaston Lespinasse, of
whom he talked constantly.
"You live in New York?" he at
once asked when the, Gothamita appeared.
"I do."
"You know Gaston Lespinasse?"
"No, I don't think I ever heard of
The Canadian seemed disappointed
as well as nonplused.   Then he began j
"You live in New York?"
"You.do not know Gaston Lespinasse?"
"Never heard of him."
The Canuck grinned incredulously.
Then, with the air of one convicting
another out of his own mouth, he
"Gaston is the cook at the hotel."

A Generous Indian Prince
Although the State of Kutch in India is classed among the poorest, the
ruling Rao is without a rival in his
devotion to the British Throne and
to the cause of the allies. As soon
as war broke out he rushed to the
Viceroy and said that his kingdom
was at the service of the Empire, and
he has lived up to that profession.
He has sustained a regiment at the
front, which has cost him .45,000
rupees per month. He has been a
notable contributor to many of the
Patriotic Funds,, in addition to contributing from five to six lakks
rupeees to the general war fund.

"Paper Coal" for Alpine Soldiers
The problem for supplying the soldiers of Italy with fuel while they are
battling up in the mountains wholly
bare of wood is being met by patriotic
girls and boys at hame. The new fuel
is called "coal paper," though "paper
coal" would do as well.
Paper can of course be compressed
to such a solidity that car-wheels have
been made from it. Such a consistency of material should burn like coal
and, though information is lacking
as to the specific quality of the omo?"
ency "coal," the compression is sufficient to render it excellent slow-
burning fuel. In all the big cities oi
Italy there have been organized bands
of boys and girls who go round and
collect all the papers they can find.
These are brought to establishments
where other boys and girls, under the
direction of women teachers, turn
these papers into solid rolls and sections, afterwards cut into chunks.
These are packed into individual bags
and distributed among the soldiers in
the bleak mountains. In case a soldier desires to have a little hot soup
or coffee he takes out three or four
combatants inhabitants being mutilated in the most"revolting fashion. In
one case a German white man was
seen by a British officer deliberately
cutting the throats of wounded 'native
troops with his open knife.
The  Meaning of Economy
The root fact is that there  are not
enough things to go round for carrying on this war and at the same time
for living  at home  is   if we   were at
peace.    One  or  other  must  be sacrificed, and  if we  are  to  win'the" war
it is  the  standard  of living  at home
that must yield.    Economy  does not
mean  hoarding money;  it  means releasing capital, and with it labor, from
satisfying private and domestic needs,
in order to apply them to the' production of things and the maintenance of
services required  by the war.   All expenditure   on   unnecessary   things  diverts capital and labor from that supreme object.    Surely there is no difficulty in understanding that.���London

The Spirit of  Nelson Survives  enemy    Sought    and    Made    to    Fight  Whatever the Odds  When Vii-e-Admiral Sir David Beatty  r.-m in with a battle cruiser squadron  ������������������-.rid engaged the main battle fleet of  the enemy, lie fought a*. Nelson would  have fought, and probably not according to modern rules of calculating a  battle by mathematics. He risked  much and suffered heavily in men and  ships. Tho enemy, however, piob-  ivlily lost no less heavily, and the  British admiral came within an ace  of making, the biggest score for the  Allies since the outbreak of war.  The difference, between a battle  cuii'-or like the Queen Mary and a  battleship is mainly in its armor-plate  ih fence. Tho battleship is protected  by walls of nickel stool armor-plate  of maximum thickness. The guns and  nil vita! piiif- .'in' encased in the  thickest armor-plate .-hHds. The battle cruisers have much lens protection.  Weight on the battle cruiser is kept  down for I be Mike o[ ������peed.  The Gorman battleship, Weslfalen,  sunk in fhe baffle of Jutland, had an  iirmor-plafo hell with a maximum  thickness of ll J-2 inches. The big-  ;.vst of the British battle cruisers, the  Queen Mary, had an armor belt, tailoring from nine inches thick amidships  to only 4 inches thick at the fore and  aft extremes. At a range of eight  miles, whore the heaviest fighting  apparently took place, the !) inch belt  of the Queen" Mary would bo vulnerable to tho. 11-inch and heavier guns  of tho enemy battleships. Tho if 1-2  inch armor of the Weslfalen. and the  fl .'{-1 inch bolt of the Pommeru. an  older German battleship, was ham-  jiieied flat by the British guns. But  fhe. British squadron had to pay the  piieo in doing what they sought to  do; fo wit, holding up the main Ger-  ni.-.u battle fleet and forcing il to fight,  l-h'on the German battle cruisers  have heavier armor defence than fhe  Mritish. One of the biggest German  battle cruisers, tho Derfflinger, repeated to have been sunk in the battle, has .-in armored belt of f.'i inch  thickness amidships. There aro throe  or more of this class similarly protected, and it is possible one other  of the fluee, either the Lufzow of the  Kr-atz Hertha. also went down in fhe  battle. Ono was observed by Admiral  Beatty to blow up amidships and  sink. Tho British ships passed another in a sinking condition, while  thoy wore chasing the flying Herman  ilcot, and it had disappeared when  they  returned.  Tho German first line ships generally have armor plato. protection heavier than the British, and for a leason.  The German admiralty sacrificed fuel  and store accommodation for the sake  ol more armor-plate. The German  win ships are designed to fight in  The North 'Sea against an enemy near  their naval, bases. They could coal  often and in smaller quantities. The  British ships, until recent years, were  not, designed against, any particular  enemy country. They worn built to  carry bigger loads of fuel, for longer  cruises. More of their total displacement consequently went into fuel and  loss into armor-plate.  The British ships kept the sea; and  'hey also kept alive the spirit of Nelson and the highest traditions of the  Ihitihh navy; fo seek out fhe*. enemy  wherever ho. might be. and make him  light whatever the odds.

Canada's Record  How an American  Paper Views Work  Accomplished by Canada in Enacting Prohibition Measures  Before it had received the news_ of  ihe splendid success of the prohibition  movement in the Province of Ontario,  the "New Republic" which is the  official organ of the Ameiican Anti-  Saloon League, had an editorial entitled "Candida's virile response" in  which the situation, this side of the  boundary line, was referred to in the  following terms:  Canada as an integral part, of the  British Empire, is in the midst of' a  struggle to the death for National existence.  The best blood of the Dominion is  being spattered all over the hills of  northern France. . The fathers and  mothers gladly give up their sons;  girls give up their sweethearts, and  wives give up their husbands. The  tax payers dig deep into their pockets  and all wonder what else they can do.  While patiiotism is abla-,.e rrom Vancouver to Quebec what are the rum  selleis doing? They arc intervening  to balk their country s efforts. Did  Canada snivel and cringe and stutter  and wriggle and crawl concerning  this?   Not much. ,  Alberta led off by wiping out the  saloons of  the entire  province.  Then along came Saskatchewan with  an anti-bar law, closing every dram  shop in her boundaries.  Then the people of Manitoba enacted a state wide prohibition law with  a two lo one majority.  Then the Legislature of Nova Scotia met and enacted a state wide law  for that province.  Now British Columbia is planning  to oust the disloyal traffic from her  boundaries.  In the hour of, public trouble whether it be in a municipal "riot, or whether it be a world wide war, the first  step necessary to success is to close  ihe dirty and disloyal dram shop.  Like the Typhus, the saloon is always an evil and a source of trouble,  but this evil is accentuated in the hour  of public distress.

Prosperous Alberta  The   Phenomenal   Growth   of  Agriculture and  Other   Industries  Big crops of wheat and coarse grains  at high prices; herds of beef cattle  with live steers langing up to $7.50  per hundredweight; hogs at from ten  to cloven cents a pound; butter,  cheese, milk and cream products constantly mounting; more farming and  better" farming, bigger crops and bigger prices���������these in themselves arc  sufficient to explain Alberta's prosperity. But the great headway the  piovinco is making is .better understood by making some simple comparisons and a few conclusions.    .  In 1905," ten years beiorc last season's crop���������Alberta produced a total  of J,017,505 bushels of spring wheat,  an average ot a trifle ancier 21 J-2  bushels per acre. The winter wheat  crop Ihe same year was less than  700,000 bushels, and the total wheat  crop about 2,200,000 bushels. In 1915  tlie same piovinco produced a wheat  crop of 5l,j'55,000 bushels, find the  average wheat yield was almost 'J.'*  bushels to the aero, according lo the  Dominion  government  returns.  Almost, equally . remarkable has  been the development of other 'grain  crops. In 1905 the oat crop was 9.-  500,000 bushels; in 1915, 107,741,000  bushels. Barley in the same period  has increased from 1,775,000 bushels  to almost 7.000,000 bushels and flax  from 8,337 bushels to 1,124,000. Taking these four principal cereals the  comparison is as follows:  1905 crop���������13,433,337 bushels.  1915 crop���������167,220,000 bushels.  But these figures do not'tell the  whole story of crop production, by  any menus. Not only has Alberta  demonstrated within the last ten  years that she can grow crops of  wheat, oats, barley and flax unsurpassed on the continent, hut she has  also found lhat she can grow other  crops which were not attempted ten  yea is ago, or which were grown in  such small quantities that they did  not figure in the returns. Among tho  crops so classed may be mentioned  rye, which last year amounted to  4G3.000 bushels, and alfalfa totalling  in 1915 over 34,000 tons. Other crops  of importance were potatoes, 5,155,-  000 bushels; turnips and other root  crops, 1,356,000 bushels, mixed grains  67,080 bushels, fodder corn, 5,700 tons;  hay and  clover, 311,000 tons.  But the permanent prosperity of  Alberta is not wholly dependent upon its crops. The clistiiet which is  now Alberta was famous for its  stock interests before its possibilities  as a grain producing country was  generally realized. Definite figures of  stock production are not so easily  obtained as in the ease of grain, but  the following taken from^the government returns, are sufficiently accurate  to prove their point. Going back  only as far as 1911 wc get, the following evidence of the development of  the live stock industry:  Livestock  in   Alberta:  1911        1915  Horses   ..    407,153   020,000  Dairy Cows 147,687   210,000  Other Cattle 592;I63   915,000  Sheep 133,592   525,000  Swine... 237,510   400,000  The dairy products of Alberta for  the year 1915 were worth $11,000,000  The production of creamery butter  was in the neighboihood of 7,000,000  pounds, compared with 2,000,000 lbs.  in 1910. The province has an expert-  system of grading, handling and  marketing its butter, which has resulted in a reputation on outside markets that assures to the Alberta dairyman top prices for its produce. The  dairy -produce of Alberta in 1915was  worth., .more than the entire cereal  crop of the province���������wheat, oats,  barley and flax���������only ten years ago.  These figures are sufficient to explain Alberta's present prosperity,  and shed a clear light upon the source  of her prosperity in the' future. Alberta, however, is a province, of natural resources and if, is worth while  printing out sonie of the other industries which are contributing to the  general wrelfare. Alberta has immense  forest wealth in the northern part of  the province, and along the eastern  slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Great  timber reserves-have been created,  which will preserve this wealth permanently to the people of the country,  hiborcis to make their homes by preference in Alberta; and the.rich agri-  cultuial distiicts capable of producing  the foodstuffs for millions of people.  Hut although as stated, manufacturing is yet in its infancy, it has already assumed some importance. Tho.  Infest census returns show flint 290  manufacturing plants in the province,  consuming raw material worth ten  millions per year, and producing finished product's almost to the value of  twenty million dollars.  The farmer may, not feel any direct interest in .lumbering, mining, or  manufacturing, but these industries  have a groat bearing on his prosperity, nevertheless. They consume a  large proportion of his oats, hay,  dairy products, etc., affording him  the best of markets���������the homo .market���������and at the same time they supply  him with lumber, fuel and certain  lines of manufactured articles at less  cost than he would otherwise pay.  As their importance increases, their  beneficial effect on agriculture will  increase in proportion.  In 1909 Alberta stood eighth among  the provinces of Canada in the matter  of railway mileage. Now-she stands  fifth, and except for some outlying  districts, agricultural communities  have railways close at hand.' A government telephone system has been  extended over the province, in, the  same period, and there are few districts which have not now the advantage of telephone connection.  Roads have been built, schools and  churches established, and 'the hardships of pioneer life fo a large extent  have become memories. Yet all this  lias been accomplished in a decade,  and there is every reason to believe  that the province is only on the threshold of its prosperity. Alberta has  more agricultural land than any-other  province, but as yet less than four per  cent, of it is under crop. Moreover, Alberta has one of the largest irrigation enterprises in fhe world.  Irrigation means, eventually, close  sofllcmenf., intensive farming, and enormous production in proportion to  the area under cultivation.  With such a record behind, and such  possibilities ahead, the future of agriculture in Alberta is assured. Ne\er  before was fhe farm so af tractive, No  other pursuit offers the same assurance of a good Jiving and independence, and tlie very fact that it takes  brains as well as muscle to farm  under modern methods -has raised  the'farmer to a higher place in'the  estimate of all other lines of industry.  And nowhere will brains and muscle  find belter reward than in"Alberta.-  Ready for the Huns  Trawlers    Equipped    With    Rams    For  Submarines  The destructive power of the submarine is gradually being bioken by  plans that are the outcome of experience and the careful study of the  naval engineers attached to the Navy.  Hitherto, if has been common  knowledge that tho majority of trawlers employed in the North Sea have  been provided with guns, and a form  of hand grenade for emergencies at  close grips with an enemy. The antisubmarine net, too, has. it is believed, accounted for f-ixly to seventy  of the enemy's U-boats.  There are other devices for checkmating Von Tii-pita's machine for reducing the British Navy to scrap iron,  of which the public is still in ignorance.

This does  not include fhe timber cut, by farmers  for building purposes, fencing, and  fuel.  Those same forested areas furnish  another important source of wealth.

The fish catch for tho same period  is  estimated  at,   $250,000.  In the -matter of coal production  Alberta stands second among the  provinces of the Dominion, being- exceeded only by Nova Scotia, and in  the wealth.of her coal deposits Alberta stands easily first. The present, output of about four million tons  is a very important factor in the province's prosperity.  As a manufacturing province Alberta is in its. infancy, although it  has striking advantages which must  boar fruit in fhe future. Among  these arc its immense resources of  coal, natural gas and water power;  ils own mineral wealth, as yet little  known except in the case of coal, and  the mineral wealth of the adjoining  province of British Columbia; the favorable climate, which, as it becomes  better known,  will load artisans and  open.

Something About Heavy Guns  The German Seventeen-inch Naval Gun Theory   Has at Last Been Exploded   As   lo   Ihe   big  17-inch    naval    gun I a ship like the Queen Elizabeth,  car-  theory, lhat was soon exploded. The  French had found the position of the  gun that was firing into Dunkirk and  photographed it. It was found to be  not a naval gun at all, neither was it  of 17-inch calibre. It was only a Ger-  inun 15-inch siege howitzer embedded  in concrete and rigidly set at its maximum elevation so that it could not  be actually aimed, but merely fired  haphazard in the general direction  of Dunkirk. Its purpose was merely  frighlfulncss. People in French towns  soon got used' ,to these big shells,  their effect soon wears off, and they  do not cause so much damage alter  all as one would be led ,to suppose.  Thus tho theory of Mr. Douglas rebounded on his own head.  Common sense, also, would have  told such experts that even if fhe  Germans had ships armed with the  17-inch naval guns, such monster  pieces would only be handicaps. As  guns vary according lo the cube of  their calibre, it can readily be figured  out that a 17-inch.gun would weigh  about double the weight-of .the 15-  ineh g.un. So at the most four 17-  inch guns could only bo mounted on  rying 17-inch guns. But owing to the  curvature of the earth, the maximum  range at sea is about 19 miles. Now,  these 15-inch, guns fire extremely effectively at. such a range, and there  is not anything on the sea that could  float any length of time once these  15-inch guns got -the drop on it. The  London Truth says lhat when the  Queen Elizabeth was given her trials  at target shooting the marks .were 19  miles away, and she perforated every  mark at the first broadside.  But with four 17-ihch guns firing  against eight 15-inch guns you would  have, giving the same rate of fire, the  Queen Elizabeth actually, firing two  shots to the other's one, and she ���������  would put the other out of .action ,be- ,  fore it could do much if any damage  to her, for she would have superiority  of fire right from the start, and  smother the opposing warship under a  hail of shells.���������From the Toronto  World. .,      '  London dock ��������� laborers - are earning-  as much as $50 'per.week.

Of Merchants' Bank  Annual  Report Shows That This Bank  is Constantly Being Placed on a  Stronger   Financial   Basis  The "Merchants Bank rcpoit for  twelve months ending April 29, 191G,  shows a veiy material strengthening  of its-position. While improving its  already veiy considerable percentage  of quick assets, the Bank naturally  had to sulfer a deciease of profits.  These however ha^e'becn better than  might have been supposed and were,,  sufficient to pay the rcgulai dividends  even after hbeial contnbutions lo  Patriotic and Red Cross Funds, and  the payment of almost Sixty Eight  thousand Uollais as War Tax" on Gh-  culation.  Including the balance brought forward fiom last year of two hundred  and forty-live thousand dollars, the  Net Profits after full provision for all  charges, etc., amounted, fo almost  twelve hundred thousand dollars.  While the Shareholders -will feel  specially giatified at this, the public  af large will rejoice especially at the  very large percentage of the quick  assets, 'which amount to .H0,960,486,  being in excess of 50 per cent of the  Bank's total liabilities to the public.  Of this amount no Jess than sixteen  millions are in coin, Dominion notes  and other cash equivalents.  As an indication of improved conditions, one notes an expansion of about  one million and a half in-Loans and  discounts���������in Canada, and a similar  amount in Call Loans, while notes  in circulation have increased by about  twelve bundled thousand dollars. Deposits are ��������� at high water mark standing at 72 millions, almost 10 millions  moie than in 1915.  Tt-' is of interest to note that the  fifty million -mark in deposits was  passed by this Bank only in 1910���������  so that in the six years an improvement in this head of almost 50 per  cent, is noted.  The repoit is another proof that  War conditions are not without their  compenspfions as now that the first  shock is over conditions are notably  better than piciious to Aug. 4th, 1914.  secute  First Aid Work  by  Cut out cathartics and purgatives.

Value of Fresn Air  One of the chief essentials to good  health is a constant supply of pure  und wholesome air. This is as ncces-  saiy in the home as in the office or  factoiy. The open window, the outside sleeping balcony and living in the  open air. all tend to shengthen the  constitution and build up the nervous  system. For this leasou too much attention cannot be paid to the ventilation oi buildings^ A supply of pure,  fresh air pay's; .from a,monetary standpoint. Roughly speaking, an increase  in production of. ten per cent is not-  unusual in the average office, shop  or warehouse, following the installation of a ventilating system. Fresh  air, therefore, properly circulated, is  un essential factor even in successful  fuclorv management.  oh-All'Railroads  An exciting Wild Western Holiday, full of Fun and Adventure.

Forshaw, D.Sc, F.C.S., etc., the well-known  scientist, says : " I have thoroughly tested Dr. Cassell's Tablets,  and can conscientiously recommend fhem as an eminently safe  and effective remedy for all forms of nerve and bodily weakness. My knowledge of Dr. Cassell's Tablets leads me to the  opinion that the ingredients form a remarkably potent medicine,  quite safe for young and old in cases of nervous prostration,  debility, anaemia, loss of flesh, malnutrition, children's weakness, sfpinal and nerve paralysis, and many forms of stomach  and kidney troubles."  Dr. Cassell's Tablets raise the vital standard of the entire  system, and thus promote kidney health and general health  when other means fail. .        .  Dr. Cassell's Tablets are Nutritive. Restorative, Alterative,  and Anti-Spasmodic, and of great Therapeutic value in all  derangements of the Nerve and Functional Systems in old or  young.   They are the recognised home remedy for Nervous  Breakdown, Nerve and Spinal Paralysis, Infantile Paralysis,  Rickets, St. Vitus'- Dance, Anaemia, Sleeplessness, Kidney  Disease, Dyspepsia, Storhach Catarrh, Brain Fag, Headache,  Palpitation,  Wasting Diseases, Vital Exhaustion, Loss of.  Flesh,   and   Premature   Decay..    Specially   %'aluable   for  Nursing Mothers and' during the Critical Periods of Life.  ^uaM^  .

"He who does me once, shame on him;  He who does me twice, shame on me."  The flamboyant orator   and  other platform parrots without  either  constructive or destructive ideas'are blaming the "subsidized ���������press" for all the political, economic, and  social  ills  of the province.    In forty-three  years of newspaper experience,  working in every department  of a printing   office,   we  have  failed to discover the "subsidized  press."   Every publisher in the  province knows that conditions  could  be   bettered,   but   how?  In the mining districts of B. C,  there1 are  two hostile camps���������  employers and employees���������due  in   many   cases   to   intolerant  minejmanagers on one hand, and  insane  socialists  on the other.  Both are importations: the dollar chasers of the United States,  who know no law and respect  no law; and the brain-cracked  socialists from Europe, who imagine that all profits should be  divided    among    the   workers  without taking into  consideration the cost  of developing  a  property to the dividend-paying  stage.    If the  editor  criticises  the workers for excessive demands, he "is subsidized and has  been slipped a hunered or two  by the boss.    We'll run him out  of the  camp."   If he  criticises  the management he's  an  "anarchist, a socialist and  is driving capital out of the country,"  and   is  blacklisted  by   all   the  dollar chasers.    When the difficulty is settled the English language ^is  seldom  heard in  the  camp, and we all get out broke.  It is the same with politics. The  press is always subsidized. Now  we want to make  a plain statement���������the man who stands on  a public platform and says that  any   of  the   printer-publishers  of the  interior of   B.  C.  have  been   induced   to   change   the  polisy of their papers  through  government  patronage or subsidies, is a deliberate liar.   This  requires no proof.   They have  never been discovered with the  goods on them; they don't show  it in their clothing or mode of  living.  A   prohibition   meeting  wtis  held in the Opera  house Tuesday evening.    Rev. R. Williams  occupied the chair, and O" ;an-  izer Hardy did  the spell-binding.     Mr.   Hardy   is   a   fluent  talker, and  has  his  fact-  and  near facts   well  in   hand.    He  occasionally mistakes noise for  hnpressiveness. That, of course,  to use an expression of his own,  may be attributed  to  previous  "environment."    He  had been  a Socialist orator.    Mr.   Hardy  dealt     many     sledge-hammer  blows    at    the   liquor   traffic.  Whether they were convincing  or not depends largely upon his  audience.    It's  a far  cry from  rag-lime   to  grand   opera.     If  Mr. Hardy is an expert carpenter, his greatest economic value  to the country would probably  be in the continuous use of the  working tools  of  that  calling.  It is possible for a great cause  to be   brought  into  ridicule by  its exponents.      The  best and  strongest    arguments    against  the liquor traffic are the walking object lessons which it daily  furnishes for the public to gaze  upon.    Might just  as  well  try  to   make   the   Sermon on the  Mount clearer by an hour's har-  rangue.    Following  the   usual  custom on such occasions, a collection was taken up.  Mr. Hardy (prohibitionist)  wishes to thank the citizens of  Hedley for their strong moral  and financial support given  while staying in their city. Collection taken at the meeting  covered-all local expenses with  a margin that will be used  locally in postage for the movement.  , At the Star Theatre, August  18 and 19, "The Earl of Paw-  tucket" will be put on the screen,  the proceeds to go to the Patriotic Fund. r  T.
