The Keremeos flower Show  On Friday, August 25th, the  Women's Institute held their  annual flower show in the Town  Hall, which was beautifully  decorated by . the appointed  committees, in bunting, flags,  pennants and evergreens. Three  large tables were prepared for  the entries and not being large  enough to receive all, so two  smaller tables were used also.  All exhibits were received  from Institute members, therefore, all the prize money, which  ^mounted to $90,50, will be used  for patriotic purposes. The sum  of $03,05 was realized tit the ice  cream and candy booth and tlie  tea tables. Evidently the Red  Gross box was overlooked as its  contents was only $4.50. ;  Entries and prizes for same  were as follows:  Best dismay of roses, Miss B,  Richter, Mrs. Sorge; hest display  of dahljns, Mrs, H, Quant; Best  cqUectiori of sweet peas, Mrs.  W.

Prohibition Act Steadily  Losing Ground  Some of t>he Reasons Why t>he Act Is  not> meeting with public favor  Wherever the Prohibition Act-  has been discussed or studied,  the measure has steadily lost in  favor since the latter part of  May, when it was formally passed by the Legislature without  one word from any member of  the House in feivor of the general principle or the details of the  Act.  The reason for this condition  of affairs is that the Act is, on  its face, of such a counterfeit  nature, and its terms so absolutely contradictory to the general meaning of the word "Prohibition", that the public has  come to see that the Act will  not'acpoinulish the ends sought  for hy real Prohibitionists, and  that, on the other hand, the  passage of the measure will  really be detrimental to the best  interests of the province from  any standpoint.  The parties who.are promoting tho tight against the passage of the Act are following out  a line of campaign which is  unique on this continent. Anti-  Prohibition campaigns are generally waged on the broad question of the .-idvantage or, the  disadvantage of Prohibition. In  British Columbia the Anti-Prohibition -organization throws  entirely to one side all the facts  and figures usually used in Prohibition campaigns, and simply  asks the electors of the province  to "Read the Act."  Let the reader glance over a  few. of the principles enunciated  in the Prohibition Apt and see  why the pass.agp of the measure  wpu.ld not be for the advantage  of the province.  1. The Act Does Not Prohibit, although it is called a  Prohibition Act, it provides for  the expenditure of just as much  money for liquor by the citizens  of British Columbia as ist now  the case, and also permits this  liquor to be consumed within  the province. Clause 57 is a  "Wide open" section, as it permits any, citizen to im port liquor from any point outside-the  province, the orders being placed for any'amount and as frequently as the person may desire, all this being done without  any control by the authorities.  Under this clause a man may  place a standing order for' a  flask of whisky a day, or a  barrel of beer per week, -and  have delivery of such shipments  made'^regulai'ly to him, just as  long as he pays the bills.   '.-   '  2. The Act Will* Send Enormous Amounts of Money out  of, the- Province. Clause 57  provides, as noted atiove, 'for  "wide-open" importation of liquor. The Prohibition Legislation of Washington and>*Ore-  gem provides for the importation of limited amounts of liquor, only one such permit for  each month to be granted to  any one individual. E%Ten with  this limited importation enormous amounts of money, are  now being daily sent for liquor  from these states to California.  If this is the case where limited  importation only is allowed,  what would be the case in Bri  tish Columbia, where the right  to import is absolutely unlimited, unrestricted and uncontfol-  ed? '       .  3. The Act Is Class Legislation. The importation clause  makes it easy for the man ,with  money - to get liquor, and the  Act means absolutely nothing  to him. The* w;orkingman or  man with moderate means, accustomed to buy his'beer by the  glass, is the man who'has not  the means to , import liquor in  quantity, and the Act wouldin-  directly * deprive him ,'of something-he desires to enjoy. The  Act' is class legislation" also, in  that it provides that a man who  isja;, .boarder or a lodger,cannot  have liquor iri his-possession^  and, further, that liquor may  not be kept in a house where  there are boarders, where more  than three lodgers are kept, or  where the rooms occupied are  in the same building as a store  or business premises. Provisions such as the above strike  at the workingman or the man  of moderate means and are class  legislation, pure and simple.  4. The Act Is Un-Brttish.  It provides that a constable  maj, at any hour of the day or  night, forcibly enter the-private  home of any citizen on the mere  suspision that he has liquor in  his possession. Having entered,  the constable may break into  any room of the hou-*e, pry open  any chest, etc.. in his search for  liquor. Another clause of the  Act permits ���������'sneak" informers  to stare to a constable their suspicion that a man has liquor in  his possession. The constable  lays an information in his own  name, and the name of the informer will never be disclosed.  Again, should liquor be found  in a man's possession, he is  deemed guilty 01 violating the  Act until he has proved that he  came into the possession of the  liquor legally. All these phases  of the Act are distinctly opposed  to Biitish traditions and customs.  he   may  understand   the   real ;  provisions which it contains. ���������  " This  referendum  question ,is ;  not one  which should be voted/-  upon  because the- mere  say-so'i  of this, that,  or the other per-.'  sou,  no matter  who they may (  be, or what their, position.  - Let'  the elector "read the act" and  "vote no." ,       "' '     " '  ��������� \K  vi'-i  Mr  ,    1, A  ���������Vf-ti  *���������   -"-v.  in  5. The Pass agio of the Act  Wim. Cause Great Unemployment. The licenced liquor industry in British Columbia, directly employs nearly four  thousand men,upon whom there  are depending for support over  six thousands persons. AH these  will be thrown, out of 'work  should the Act pass. The Act  also indirectly means a decrease  in business in very many allied  trades, which now derive a part  of their prosperity because of  the business coming from licensed premises.  6. The Act Increases Taxation. At present every city,  municipality and, in the unorganized districts, provincial  authorities derive a revenue  for the licensing of the liquor  trade. If the Probition Act,  parses, this source of revenue  will bo entirely eliminated, and  the decrease! must be made up  by general taxes,'which''means  an increase in the tax rate.  The above brief outline, covering a few clauses of tho Act,  should cause every reader to  read this act thoroughly before  September  Hth,  in order  that  MissrFraser left Friday last '       S;  to resume teaching at  Merritt.,.     ,l ^>"  L.

The Ontario prohibition regulations "will not demand that  liquor must be first exported  from the province and then returned, to (ill orders of Ontario  citizens. Breweries and distilleries may deliver direct. This  means that they will hold all  their Ontario trade through individual orders as well as handle  the large trade of importing  liquor into Manitoba. This latter business is growing rapidly,  special  express cars of liquor  being sent from Kenora to Win-  *        .  nipeg every evening. ,.  ���������*2:'''?r4*-a THE      GAZETTE.

In lit is appeal a first class  proposition  arises,  yet if   people  will  donate to tlie question a little thought,  it will  be ascertained the good  roa'ds  movement   is   slowly   and "assuredly  displaying its   presence   the   province  over.    When  the area of Manitoba is  considered, its formative material and  various   features,   the   intricacies     of  road making in many districts will be  better understood.    Already this province is in possession of more mileage  of good highways than the most sanguine  expectation   considered   as  possible for the few decades of its history.  It is a unanimous verdict that adequate thoroughfares are the imperative  necessity pointing  toward   the  higher  interests  of  mercantile  life.    And   in  particular is such compulsory in these  years when towns and villages are" in  strenuous combat with the increasing  competition    of catalogue    houses  in  Winnipeg and eastern Canada.    Without good highways, trading conditions  in   the   rural   centres   will   inevitably  travel   the    route  to   the  mail    order  establishments.   In adjacence to some  of Manitoba's  more  important towns,  good   roadways  are   not  a  generality.  A? example, thoroughfares leading into Winnipeg; even in close proximity  to the city, roads might be mentioned  which   bear a  resemblance  to prairie  trails utilized by the settlers in years  of   long  ago.     And   in  similitude   are  certain highways converging into  the  City    of   "Brandon.      Money,    goodly  quantities  of   that  commodity,   forms  the sinews of road  building.  Without  doubt,  sums  have  been  disbursed   by  municipal  councils  for  highway  purposes,   and   have   not   tended   toward  anticipated  result.    Hut  no  assembly  or government in the wide world lias  attained a state of perfection in financial expenditure, and it is not within  realms  of common    sense    to  expect  such.    Again, there must be taken into consideration the fact that in building highways  within  certain districts  of   Manitoba,   local  conditions  are  of  such character a goodly sum of money  expended does not display much work  accomplished.  Therefore, when the various features  are taken into" account, Manitoba cannot be adjudicated as suffering a,deficiency of good highways. It is  somewhat calamitous greater attention  has not been devoted to a better class  of thoroughfares is proximity to the  centres of population. , A stranger is  liable to take an erroneous impression  of provincial roads from such existent  within some districts, highways which  do not correctly represent Manitoba's  transportation facilities in a correct  light.���������J.

Better Farming:  Cows,  Clover    and  Care  Will     Bring  Good      Results  Better fanning means so much that  it takes a man with big ideas and  much smid and gumption to carry  ir cut. It means something like an  equality of give and take. You must  ^���������ive th ��������� soil as much as you take,���������  a little more will make the taking  surer. Farming -uiy other way isn't  funning���������it's a race for poverty lane.  A farm won't yield without being fed,  any more than a hired iiinii will work  without being paid.  The time to begin better farming is  before the soil shows real need of it.  It's easier to keep up than it is to  catch up. Rotate crops and get a  stand of clover between the grain  years once in three years at least.  That, means caftle, of course; but anything you grow is better sold in the  shape "of cream, beef, wool or pork.  The value is raised and two-thirds  of the fertility i.s returned in the  manure. That is a part of better  farming.  More cat lie. better cultivation,  broader methods, is the trinity of better funning. Selling less to sell more  is the creed. That lust may sound  funny but it is true. You sell less  fertility and bulk to sell more dollars' worth. You can market live  stock produce with less expense and  not rob your soil to do it. For instance,  the farmer who sells a ton of wheat,  sells about $7.75 of his fertility ,and  gets about -?20 or ^25 for it. If he  sells a ton of sheep, he sells about  $9.50 worth of his fertility and gets  about -fSO or $100 lor it. ��������� The first  is a return of about $3 from ,1>'l and  wears out the soil; the second, is a  return of about $9 from $1 and keeps  the land rich.  There are very few fields that get  the cultivation they should. An aerated pulverized, mellow soil is the only  paying kind to put seed into. A pint  of sifted soil in a flower not will grow  a bigger-plant, than will a quart of  coarse soil. We can't sift grain fields,  but, we can come close to it. with the  right tools used, when it is not too  wet or dry.  Better farm ing-calls for broader methods���������less dependence on any one  thing. Dividing your farm to a number of reasonably certain staples multiplies your chances of hitting it right  with  something.  KITCHENER  (By   Robert J.  C.  Stead.)  Weep, waves of England!

So 'many demands have been made  on public generosity as a result of  the war that there might be hesitancy in presenting another if the  needs were not so great. v The Canadian public have met all demands  nobly, but it is still safe .to say that  those who arc staying, at home in  peace are contributing- very much less  than those who have gone to fight  for the cause oE human liberty. Compared with some of the unfortunate  countries of Europe, Canada scarcely  knows she is at war.  One of the most unfortunate of the  little nations, in whose cause our  Empire has taken up this great fight,  is Serbia. It was the spirit of the  Serbian people, which refused to abase  itself before Austria and Germany,  that was used as a pretext by those  nations for this war. anel Serbia has  suffered for her liberty perhaps even  more than Belgium, although the distress of the Serbian people has not  been so prominently before the Canadian public.  The recent visit of Mrs. Pankhurst  fo Calgary resulted in the organization of a branch of the Canadian Serbian Relief Society with Mr. ,T. S.  Dennis, Assistant to the President  of the Canadian Pacific Railway, as  president and Rev. Cox Clarke of  Calgary, secretary treasurer. A committee of prominent men and women  complete the organization, and an appeal is now made for funds to assist  the families of our desitiute allies in  Serbia. Contributions may be made  in goods but cash is preferred as it  can be forwarded more quickly and  gives more immediate relief.  The need is very great and it is  felt that this appeal will not fall unheeded by the people of Alberta. Already some substantial contributions  have been received, and others, sent  either to Mr. Dennis or to Rev. Cox  Clarke, 509 ISth. Ave., West. Calgary,  will be promptly acknowledged arid  at once placed in the way of assisting  a. noble people who are reduced to  destitution by the ravages of  war.

They must dispel  .hat vision and face an ultimate disin-  egration of Turkey.  As the outcome of" these and other  .onferences it was decided to concentrate upon a two-fold plan of campaign  " >r peace.   The methods may be sum-  ri/.ed    as  follows:      Diplomatically,  orermany    was   to aim   at detaching  laly from the allies. She was to offei  ,erms   to   Belgium,   including   an   in-  ilemnity and the destruction of forts  [in proximity to her border as an evi-  "ence of her good faith.  Her   trump   card,   however,   was  to  [settle the suhmatine controversy with  'the United  States,  and  then,  assuming  that the  Crown   Prince  had   nut  an end to the struggle on the Meuse to  solicit President Wilson to submit tentative peace terms to    Great  Brit.-'in  and France in particular, in the hope  'that they would be refused, and thereby enable Geimany to regain her prestige among the nations she had  unfortunately  estranged by her aggressiveness.  , Other moves were to be attempted,  and included assent to the Dardanelles  becoming an international waterway,  [.provided the sovereignty of Turlcy  was  maintained.  Then, what isnot generally known,  a new organization was formed under  the diiection of the notorious Wolff  [iPiess Bureau to agitate along these  lines in the United States. Spain, Holland, South America and Scandinavia  Tons of literature in these languages are already in piint, including  books with new "facts" as to the genesis of the war, magazine articles written as far as possible by well known  writers, professedly not too friendly  to German ideas, but well enough  sprinkled with disturbing argument  and statement to make the allies appear as if; fighting for a mere brute  conquest of the fatherland.' The, role  of Bryan with a mixture of Maxmillatr  Harden, was to be the model for these  writers.  A special staff of 200 men and women were selected for "special" work.  Two thousand local correspondents  were named. The list of these has  been seen. ,  Tha bankers' association is generally   credited  with having appropriated  tho funds necessary to meet the outlay required lo make the campaign a  ,, success.  Several well known publishers    are  alleged  to'have been  roped  into  ihe  effort,  and  one    in-particular shown  ^documents that will be annotated  by  ;,"cxperts"  and  made  to ��������� appear'-from ,  Itimc to time as "revelations"  of the  Imiachinalions of Great Britain.

An appeal has  been issued for the observance of  meatless^das-s in order to-adjust the  balance between supply and demand,  but' this is not likely to be conceded  as a voluntary sacrifice' on the pait  of the more wealthy classes. Economic  laws may help somewhat, for the meat  bill is at present so prohibitive for  the poorer classes that the butcheis  of Belfast and other urban centres  have decided to close their shops on  certain days in the week. Another  aspect of the question, and one that  concerns ,this country, is the failure  of Canada to supply cattlei for the  British market at this time of pressing necessity. The British embargo on  Canadian live stock !s largely responsible for this state of affairs. "Canadian  stock raisers have, adapted themselves  to the changed conditions brought  about by the British embargo. Another  cause contributing to the shortaire of  cattle in Canada is iKo unrestricted  slaughter-of young female stock.

The  trawler had the misfortune to strike  a mine and was blown up. Young  Doe showed special presence of mind,  helped a sailor who was in danger  of drowning, and cheered older men  to hold on till relief came to the  trawler.

As there have been  many rulings by the department and  men from all parts of the Dominion  are interested in these various rulings  a summary is of interest.  The Dominion Lands Act as it stands  makes certain provision for military  service. Section 22 of the act provides that a Canadian volunteer hold  ing a homestead may count his active  military service as uterformance oi  residence. Section 23"of the act uro-  vides that any such volunteer who is  disabled by wounds or illness,    while  under the Dominion Land Act priof  to his enlistment.

According to their story the battle  was purely accidental. It occurred  while the battle cruiser squadron of  Admiral Sir David Beatty was hunting for six auxiliary cruisers which  the British Admiralty Intelligence Department had learned were making a  dash for the Atlantic by way of Iceland.  ; During this search Beatty's squadron encountered . the German" battle-  cruiser squadron, and engaged it. The  battle then' took place on the course  that, had previously been reported, the  ������������������catch for the auxiliary cruisers being abandoned.  The Andania's officers declared that  after Beatty had wirelessed, for 'Admiral Jellicoe he sent word to the Admiralty thi't he was heavily engaged  and had abandoned search for "the  auxiliary squadron.  The Admiralty then sent out an armored ciuiser squadron of the second  line of defence, which discovered the  auxiliaries, and after a sharp fight  succeeded in sinking them.

Shortly after the outbreak of war  there arose the question of extending  the same -privileges to British- and  foreign reservists. In May. 1915, an  oider was passed authorizing this action. The wording of this order he-  ing somewhat ambiguous and a question of its interpietation having been  raised an amending order was passed  in September of the same year. This  authoiized not only that all privileges  conferred to Canadian soldiers should  be extended to all reservists fighting  on the side of Great Britain and the  Allies of Great Britain, but that patent might be issued to disabled soldiers without calling for the performance of any further duties and without  requiring an application for patent  and also providing for the issue of  patent in the name of a deceased alien  entrant without requiring any ���������further  duties o1- the making of a formal application for patent or the filing of  letters of administration. These ciders were extended so as to grant the  same concessions to the naval service  as to the military service.  The question 'has arisen of a man  taking out a homestead entry 'the day  he enlisted or after he had enlisted.  In Hie case of a certain British reservist who secured a homestead entry  on the same' day he was called to  the colors he has been given the same  privileges as men who had homesteads  when they enlisted. However. Hon.  Dr. Roche, minister of the interior,  has ruled that persons who secured  entry after enlistment or after the  date of their recall to the colors will  only be granted protection during the  term of their military service and wih  not further paiticipate in the benefits  of the order-in-council. Under a ruling  of May' 13, 1916. wheie, the entry is  made after enlistment and the ho.ne-  steader is killed in action the legal  representatives will be expected to  complete the duties, other_ than residence, in the same way as in ordinarv  case-  ->\  homestead entry.  The question of protection for men  enlisting in the Royal North West  Mounted Police arose. Early in the  war instructions weie given that the  entries of persons enlisting in the  police for one year misht be protected  during that period. It was later decided to continue this protection fur  the duration of the war as the "police  were in many ways on active service.  Members of the police force do not  get the benefit of clause 22 of the act  providing that time spent in a Canadian force may be counted as residence. Th'ey will later have to do  homestead duties In September. VVM.  instructions were given that a nurse  who held an entry and she had volunteered for service with the" Canadian  contingent was to be granted protection during her absence on hospital  service.  Recent  orders hav������s  amended  these  regulations.     Instructions   have' been  issued  that all  existing proxy entries ,  made by volunteers "are to te protected*"  from   cancellation   provided--the   tact  of   active   military   service   is   made  known   to  the.  agent  in time  to'prevent cancellation under-the ordinary  *  proxy  regulations.

The interesting notes  about parasols   are   their   wonderful   colorings,  their odd shapes and the manner in  which they repeat the important features of dress.  The green silk parasol carries out  this    last    statement    quite    prominently.   The green and yellow flowers  sprinkled over its surface repeat the  craze for embroidered dress' fabrics.  . The tucked-up sections and the full  ruffle finishing the edge of the parasol are other points which are fash-  . ionable in frocks this season.  For many years silk was considered  the most suitable material for a parasol, but this year chiffon is featured  extensively   for   the   purpose. G The  pale pink one would be a pretty complement  to   any  summery   frock   of  equal daintiness.   Do not fail to note  the use of garlands of flowers on this  particular sunshade.    The quilling of  ribbon which appears around the edge  . _,of-'~tKe'parasol gives it the touch that  makes it appropriate for a gown reflecting   the   fashions   of   the   early   ,  nineteenth century.  Quite an original touch is given the  light gray-blue sunshade by the use  of ostrich trimming. Even the crooked  handle is topped off with a bit of the-  feathery stuff.  Among the novelties is the canopy  style.    An exceedingly effective one ���������  ' is of dark blue" taffeta.   Red embroid-  ' ery -.nd red fringe are touches which  give the parasol dash.   A patriotic result is gained -by having a blue-and-  white handle which  carries itself in  the straightest manner possible.  The all-concealing sunshade is one  which any little coquette would like.  To carry out the spirit of coquetry  the  lavender   silk  is   sprinkled' with  bouquets of charming blue and pink  flowers. "   .......  From such an assortment you can  surely find one model which will  please you, protect you and throw a  soft glow over your entire costume.  Surely you cannot overlook .an acces- .  s.ory of dress which has such splendid  qualifications!

In    Russia  a  most  remarkable    improvement, in  the social life and national spirit has  followed    the prohibition    of Vodka.  When war broke out vodka was    the  national "drink.  It contains  forty per  cent, of alcohol anil, its ravages    had  already led to a big temperance movement when war and the Czar's ukase  banished  the    fiery 'spirit    from   the  Empire.      The     government     faced  the tremendous    loss of revenue en-  itailed by prohibition, and their deci-  ['sion   has  been- wonderfully    justified  thy the revolutionizing of Russian life,  [especially in the small towns and villages.   At first it was decided to ap-  |ply prohibition to the period of mob-  lilizatjon only, but the gravity of the  [crisis with    which the country    was  {faced led to its extension  during the  >eriod of the war.   -What arc the rc-  Isults    in  Russia ' of    this     sweeping  ���������change in the drinking hbits -of    the  [people?  The change from national drunkenness to national sobriety has been so  [iraiked and its effect- have cut >so  [deeply into the life of the Russian  ^people that prohibition is likely to be  [permanent. Professor J. V. Simpson  [of.Edinburgh, /describing his expediences in "The Self-Discovery of -Rus-  fsia," a volume published by Constable, writes:-  -      ,   '.'.'    ',,  "'Every aspect of our 'village life  has' been changed/' said 'the leader of  [one of the prties'in' the Duma'to Mr.  .'Simpson. - 'Latterly the old men did  not'come to ihcvillagc assemblies bc-  [causc they were continually submitted  >to.insult by-the 'half-drunken ' men.  |Tlie women are enlhusiaslic;>no long-  >er are they-insulted or beaten. They  .receive, their husbands' wages now.  vThe chief of police in a district in the  Government of Moscow said to a  Ifriend of mine the other day, "The  conditions of-my service will have to  ibe,altered; I have had nothing lo do  for two months."' ,  The suicide rate has dropped    an'd  'rowdyism hs  practically disappeared.  The  change is  marked    in  industrial  life.      Employers of hibo1*  report increased  efficiency all round from  10  15'per cent.    The deposits in savings  ^banks  have    increased,   while    crime  has ' steadily decreased.    All- the official reports and statistics confirm the  good results that have directly followed   the   prohibition   of  vodka.     Beer  j.and wine are    still on sale    in some  municipalities,    and  there  is a dread  in   many   quarters   that,. if   permitted  . ,to -extend,  the  consumption of these  kmay, in time, replace vodka and men-  I'.acc  the .social  and  industrial  life  of  I'the  Empire which has    benefited so  ica'tly by the recent restrictions. At  present "public    opinion is not sufficiently    organized  to  deal  with    the  beer 'and wine problem,, as  the    consumption   .of.these    was     negligible  while.vodka    remained the    national  vdrink..v        ^ .    V .  ,-sTempcrance reformers in .Russia  place great reliance on the influence  of the Czar in determining the future  of the drink problem, as the question  of permanent prohibition is regarded -as bound up with the promises  made by- the Emperor. The expeii-  ment in Russia, as in France, proves  'hat, contrary to the old-time opinion,  a nation may be made sober by Act  r-f Parliament. Laws that help to correct the evil habits of a country and  give it an opportunity in a time -oi  great peril to play its part in the spirit that animates France and Russia  in this war justify the invasion of individual rights.���������Toronto    Globe.  Location Values  Good Roads and Proximity to a Market Sets the Price of Farm Values  Both city and country land values  are greatly influenced by location in  relation to population. A corner lot  where the largest number of people  pass every day is the most valuable  site for a business location. It is the  nearness to market that gives it this  high value���������the market coming to it  instead of the business having to go  to the market.  Out in the country the same influences are at work fixing land values.  That farm near to market is worth  more than one equally good far from  ���������.market.-. Distance is, not the only factor which decides location value. One  farm may be ten miles' from a good  market but on a paved road that with'  trucks, and autos, brings _the_ farm  ������������������and market close together- in time required to cover the distance, while  another farm may be four miles from  market with almost impassable clay  liills and muddy roads which make it  undesirable, and unsaleable.  In a study of 650 farms in Johnson  Coiurty, Missouri, the Missouri Agricultural Experiment Station found  -that the 79 farms within two miles of  market had an average .value of $78.20  pT acre. The 126 farms that were  ���������four to six miles from market had an  average value of $60.90, while 113  farms from s;ix to eight miles  ��������� away averaged $58.20. There were  149 farms over eight miles from market and they averaged $55.90 per acre  -in value.     .  This sort of rating might do in a  territory'very similar in type and having the same kind of roads, but milc-  -agc distance should -be changed to a  time distance where one part has  paved roads and.another part muddy  dirt roads. Instead of rating a farm  ���������as so many miles from town, it would  be safe to rate it as so many minutes  from,town. This rating would apply  . equally.-well'to'the farms on paved  -l,ighways as to those on dirt roa*ds.  Distance has no value except as it  ��������� effects time.  A glance at the values as found by  ;the Station, show the value of good  roads. They immediately eliminate  ��������� distance, and values go up more than  enough to pay the paving tax.���������Successful Farming.  "Huilo. Tom!

Menace of the Fly   ,  ,  .Swat  the  fly,  * But    Beware  of    the  i Dead Ones  -''The tendency at this'time of the  year of the health authorities in vari-  ous^cities of the middle west to offer  a premium of 10 cents a hundred for  dead' flies in connection with their  municipal clean-up campaigns brings  up for discussion an important question of sanitation and hygiene. If a  fly, alive, is a possible bearer of death  through the disease germs which it  carries on its body, how do children  swat the fly and then carefully preserve the decomposing bodies for the  coveted 10 cents a hundred escape infection through the same germs?  Apparently, through zeal in these  wars of extermination, those in authority have overlooked a most dangerous feature of the movement. Swat  the fly, of course, but burn him up  immediately because he is more filthy  dead than he ever could be aiive. Decomposition adds to the menace.  To instruct children to "swat flies"  and accumulate theni until they have  enough to bring in and collect 10  cents a hundred seems nothing short  of-a crime against modern sanitation.  It would'be a dangerous'.practice for  grown people who took every possible  precaution against infection ��������� but for  children to carry dead flies with their  hands and then perhaps handle food  without washing is almost certain to  spread every disease that flies are  known to carry.  The only possible way, from a sanitary" standpoint, in which flies could,  be caught and preserved for the estimating of. their 'number w,ould be on  a sheet of sticky fly,paper which embalms the flies- body .with - a glue  which prevents the germs from  spreading. This might add to,the difficulty "of estimating' the exact number but it would be near enough for  all practical purposes. A'nd it would  protect children from probable infection in the very disease, against which  the fly campaign is supposed to be  directed.  .  Testing Advertising  The .Newspaper is the, Best Medium  Through Which to Secure Results  In talking recently with a man who  has made a'large success as an advertising salesman in another place  this question was asked him:' "When  a merchant says it does not pay to  advertise, what do you tell him?"^  " "I'just ask him this: What proportion'of the population of this town  has been inside your store during the  past two montus?  "Very few merchants eve. claim  they have had 10 per cent, of the  population. Most of the non-advertisers would be glad to get one per  cent: A lot of them probably , get  only a small fraction of one per cent,  with' any regularity.       (>  "Then I say, how are all the rest  of the people going to>know about  your'-goods? How can. they 'tell  whether it would be for their advantage to patronize you or not? If you  have had good values at special bargains, how do they know about it?  A great many^pf them rarely or, never  pass your.store. The,great majority  that pass give you only a glance. You  are not getting .their business, having  done nothing to interest them.  "Then I go on to say there are  just three way's to get some of this  trade now sliping past them. They  can send around solicitors from door  to door, distributecirculars or handbills, or advertise in newspapers. The  newspaper notice is read carefully,  where the solicitor is summarily  turned down; and besides, advertising is twenty times cheaper than canvassing. And handbills are chucked  into the waste baskets, while newspapers are read. If you don't care to  use any of these methods, I tell them  most of the people of this town will  continue to pass you by without  knowing anything about your goods."  About the Knocker  One Instance in Which the Knocker  Got What Was Coming to Him  Do you know what we think is the  best story in the Bible? If may surprise you, but 'tis the one about  Noah and the flood. We 'say this  even in the face of educated folks  who turn up their noses and declare  tlic flood story a fake. You remember that Noah had to work a long  time on the ark. It was an uphill  business, too, at best, to go on sweating and toiling day after day in the  hot sun ��������� out there on.'dry land, while  the hammer and anvil club sat around  spitting tobacco juice on his boards,  whittling up his soft pine with old  jack-knives, and telling him what a  fool he was to expect a big rain in a  country that was too dry to grow  alfalfa. But he kept at" it:, finally the  flood came, and every mother's son  of the croakers was drowned. This  is the only instance *ve know of cither  in sacred or profane history where  the knocker got exactly what was  coming to him.  Emperor A Daylight Saver  Citizens of neutral countries who  have recently arrived in Rome from  Vienna state that Emperor Francis  Joseph was never so well in his life  as now. He is even a daylight saver,  according to these witnesses, for he  rises in the morning at 3 o'clock and  breakfasts at 4. If this correct it must  be that the aged Monarch thrives on  adversity and misfortune. He has had  more worries, domestic and political,  than usually fall to the lot of Sovereigns, and today his country is facing a crisis full of dire possibilities.

' ���������  It Pays to Stack Grain   -  Many Good Arguments in Favor of  ,   Grain Stacking, "  ' Looking more to the saving of labor  ,than to the saving of grain, many adhere to the plan of threshing from the  shock.. When everything works right,  shock threshing is all right, but too  often so many things come up that  cause delay that actually getting the  grain in the bin without loss and damage is a very uncertain proposition.  Shock threshing requires a great deal  of help while it lasts, but one good  thing about it is that it does not last  long. The field is cleared quickly and  can then be plowed; there are no  stacks to spoil because of poor stacking and none to be struck by lightning  and burned.  However much that may be said in  favor of threshing from the shock,  there still remains much to be said in  favor of stacking. Grain will do to  go into the stack much quicker than  it will to thresh. Consequently it often happens the entire acreage may  be safely stacked while waiting for it  to become dry enough to thresh, and  tnen, perhaps, along will come a series of rains that still further prolong  the time of threshing; in the meantime, grain in the stack is safe while  that in the shock becomes damaged  and partly spoiled. Except in a few  instances, shock threshing is a wailing game. If it does not rain too much  in the meantime, little is lost, but if  it does the loss may amount to considerable. Every breakdown, every  dew, every shower 'means a delay* in  the work,' and all this time the grain  in the shock'is subject .to loss if, a  loss has not actually 'occurred.  The help proposition is no; small  thing when threshing from-the shock.  A great many'teams'and men ' and  rack wagons are "needed1 to keep the  machine going when it does go, and  when, for any reason, it does not go  all this help is idle. A heavy dew, a  shower or some bother with the machinery means delay, yet the length  of this delay is so short that the help  cannot start any other work, either  for themselves or for the mai* on  whose farm the machine is located.  With the weather' ordinarily favorable, it is seldom that more than two-  thirds of the actual working time is  put in when shock threshing. The  other one-third is usually wasted.  S'ill another bad feature is having  to help back those who have helped  you. No matter how badly your corn  needs cultivation or how much you  would like to cut that clover or alfalfa, you must go and help the neighbor thresh, for he has_ helped you cr  is going to do so. It is a case of being on the job when the cylinder  starts,to hum. The man who has his  grain in the stack is able to wait,  without danger of loss if his stacking  is well done, until the need of field  work is not so urgent before thresh-~  ing, and then, when he does thresh,'  his grain having gone through the  "sweat" will be of better quality. "* It  usually takes quite, a loss, howeve.', to  convince the farmer who is in the  habit of threshing from the shock  that there really is something besides  "a sentimental practice of the past"  in grain stacking.���������H.

The French  infantry wear a single breasted blue  tunic with a red collar, shoulder straps  and cutf flaps. Their trousers are red  and Ihe Ivttoms aie generally tucked  into ankle boots. Greatcoats of gray,  cut away from the waist to the knees,  complete the uniform of the French  foot soldier. The French cavalry are  even more elaborately attired than  the infantry. Over a uniform of red  trousers and a blue tunic they wear  heavy steel helmets with brass ornaments and a long, black horsetail  which drops almost on to their  shoulders.  Grey-green clcth is the standard  uniform for all the soldiers of the Italian Army, and it is rare to see anything but gray-green being worn even  in peace times The uniform worn by  Italy's finest troops, the "Alpini" and  "Bersaglieri" regiments, however, is  of a darker shade. In peace times  these latter regiments are distinguished by their broad brimmed hats adorned with immense Dlumes.  Green is the predominating color o'  the Russian uniforms, which are cut  in a very stylish fashion. The tunic  is double-breasted and knickerbockers, high black boots and a flat-topped  cap complete the outfit of the Czar's  foot soldiers. In severe weather, the  Russians wear heavy grayish-brown,  waterproof overcoats, which are lined  with sheepskin and possess a cape  which can be lifted so that it completely envelops the head. The Russian dragoons wear trousers of blue  gray, and a peaked cap. Footcloths  are substituted for socks in the Russian nimy.  The Cossacks rival the French in  the picturesqueness ot their uniforms.  They wear blue coats to the knees,  black riding boots and a cloth topped,  conical  lambskin  cap.  The German uniform is very drab,  and consists of bluish gray which so  blends with the landscape that troops  thus garbed are very difficult to detect at a distance. In cut, the uniform of the kaiser's troops resembles  that of the British costume. The German cavalry are more brightly garbed  than their comrades on, foot, for they  wear blue tunics, with' gray trousers  and. black leather helmets. The kaiser's hussars are noted for their gay  uniforms, which they cover with all  manner of metal ornaments, and they  wear fur busbies, gray trousers with  colored stripes and white pouch belts.  x\ustrian  foot  soldiers   wear  single-  breasted, dark blue tunics, trousers of  lighter    blue  and  hats of the    same (  shade  fashioned   like  the   kepi.���������Tit- j  Bits. ��������� j  Swat, the I?Iy  Cleanliness    and Drainage    Will Do  Away With Flies and  "*���������    Mosquitoes  . The place to swat the fly is in the  manure piles where they hatch. It  is the horse manure that does most  of the mischief. Spread it 'on the  fields every few days and flies will  be scarce around the premises. Have  fly traps around the porches. Keep  the garbage' pail emptied and the  privy vault screened or the contents  dusted with dry dust or ashes. Use  screened porches and windows. The  fly is a dangerous pest.  Mosquitoes hatch in the stagnant  pools, sloughs and mud holes. An  empty tomato can that was thrown  in the rubbish heap may catch a little  rain and soon hatch out thousands of  mosquitoes to annoy you. -A charge  of dynamite in the bottom of a stagnant -pool may open the ground so  water can escape. Dynamite the  "skeeters" into "Kingdom Come" if  you can't drain the pools with a little  hand spading. A thin film of kerosene or crude oil over the water of a  slough or pond will keep mosquitoes  from hatching. _Of course this renders  the water unfit to drink. In fact,  stock should not be compelled to  drink water so stagnant as will hatch  mosquitoes.  Cleanliness and drainage will do  away with flies and mosquitoes.  Germany's Dangerous Foe  Major Moraht Writes in the B_rlin  Tageblatt   His   Opinion, of'   ,  -   " Britain's Strength  At a former stage of the war, I once  wrote in .these columns that the firm  will of England would grow under  the ever-increasing stress of the war,  that the leaders of the British nation  .. well as the nation . itself would  manifest in their adaption to the war  qualities. which had hitherto been  slumbering and which would become  more and more like the German qualities as educated in former -wars.

He provided "that if land is not put  in cultivation, the Jrolder must give  account and pay compensation." In  'other words, the land-speculator>who  kept land out of use had to pay just  taxes thereon. Hammurabi didn't  intend to encourage the ground hog  by letting him escape taxation, -even  in that day, when land was .plentyand  population not over-crowded.���������Successful Farming.  An Italian applied for naturalization papers. He swore allegiance to  the United States Government, and  answered several questions quite satisfactorily. At last the Judge asked: "Do you belong to any society  or organization inimical to the Government of the United States " This  was too much for the Italian to understand, and he was silent. The  Judge explained the meaning, and  again asked the question. A gleam of  understanding overspread the face of  the Italian, and he replied: "sure!  Me I'm Democrat."  During the recent Shakespeare celebration a number of local amateurs  appeared in the great dramatist's most  famous tragedy. Next day the principal actor inquired of a critical friend  what he thought .of the performance  "It was great! Simply great!" was the  reply.

Maxime   Elliot   Fed   35,000    Sufferers  In Belgium  There is little time to pause today;  and retrospect is almost impossible, so  rapidly do' history - making events of  supreme importance follow one another.  The autumn of 1914 seems a long,  long time ago. Now we are quite accustomed to hearing Flemish in our  streets and to having Belgian neighbors, but happily for poor little Belgium those who initiated the various  schemes of relief "on its behalf have  "stuck to their guns," and no one has  done more to assuage the misery and  relieve the sufferings of the Belgian  refugees than Miss Maxine Elliot.  In the days immediately following  the fall oi Antweip and the occu. a-  tion of almost the entire country by  the Germans, Miss Elliot organiz.-jd  and equipped entirely at her own expense an "expeditionary force" for the  feeding, clothing and general helping  of the poor, homeless, helpless, penniless people. It was entirely her own  idea which she promptly put into  practice. In October, 1914, she started  and for eighteen months worked ;n-  cessantly, indefatigably, whole heart-  edly. Week in, week out, she and ner  friends, her orderlies and interpreters,  ministered to the wants of whoever  came along to be helped and relieved,  and the total number of men, woman,  and children who came within her  direct ken, and care was no less than  35,000.  Miss Elliot chartered and equipped  the good barge Julia and an' ambulance motor van and started from Calais on her voyage to "somewhere"  in Flanders. Provisions, ��������� clothing,  medicines and every other conceivable  necessity were sent to -her from all  parts, and hither came the poor, the  maimed;, the .destitute and- all were  cheered and comforted. Not'only did  these poor people come, but others,  too, as her autograph sheets tell by  their own showing: Elizabeth, queen  of the Belgians, royalties, generais,  statesmen, soldiers, some of, whom,  alas, will never write their autographs  again, some whose oreasts are now  decorated with the glorious "V. 0."  sailors, dukes, duchesses���������all fou id  their way at some time or other to  the good barge Julia at its moorings in  the sluggish Belgian canal, where on  one side ran the high road, trodden  incessantly all day and all night by  thousands and thousands of troops,  and on the other side was the "fighting line" quite close.  Everyone was cared for, the particulars of each, their name, age, domicile,  registered in a book provided for the  purpose; the number of these book*  grew and grew and Miss Elliot- haa  quite a long row of them, all full, and_  each one telling its own tale and bear-"  ing faithful witness of her noble woik.  One sheet showed the names of a  grandmother, mother and ten children,  whose ages ranged trom 12 years old  down to the baby a few months old,  quite destitute, and each family hael  a separate sheet for its record.  Miss Eliot has many tangible mementoes of her "war work." First and  foremost does she prize "L'Orde de ia  Couronne," bestowed on her, by King  Albert, who fully recognizes and appreciated lier good work for his people.  One grateful soldier promised Miss  Elliot a trophy, and true to his promise brought her a Uhlan helmet.  Now that time, which changes all  things, has so ordained that there 's  no longer the pressing need for work  such as Miss Elliot initiated and carried through with extraordinary ability and success, she is back again in  her beautiful home in England, but  "away over there" she will never be  forgotten.���������From the London Gentlewoman.

'  Such used to be Ihe case, but the  mice ww "shuck off the books" long  ago. In the curly days of submai irios  mice weie cariied in them as a kind  of danger gauge. Their duty��������� and  they performed it faithfully���������was to  begin squeaking as soon ns poisonous  fumes escaped inside the boat. Being  more sensitive to these than men are.  the mice could detect'the fumes'much  hooner than the other members of tlit.'  crew could. Therefore, a close watch  upon the little animals used lo be  kept. As soon as they .showed signs  oi distress up shot the bout and open  went' her conning towi-r.  Now the skill oJ designers has produced submarines that require neither  while mice nor "potted air" to ensure  the s.-itety of Iheir crews.

Rut if you were able to try  it for yourself you would soon fall to  wondering what he would deem "all  wrong" if he found this soit of life  "all right." As, a matter of fact, the  "submariner" has ah.nit the most un-  comfoitablc time of any sailor, though  the second nature which comes with  use has so acclimalinct him lo it that  he thinks lightly of his hardships.  During their infancy submarines enjoyed the fostering care of a "mothe*-  ship" when they went cruising. She  used to look after the material needs  of the boats, and the peisonal comfort of their crews with kindly solicitude/as''a.'good mother should. Having now "crown up," the submarine  gets but little "mothering" and has to  look after itself.  A submarine lying snugly alongside  a dockyard jetty gives one no adequate idea of what ihe same bout  looks'like when scudding through the  waves. Watch her setting off on a  trip and you will see only a few hands  on deck. There will be., perhaps, a  couple of officers on the conning tower  and one or two men al its base. All  are clad in thick clothing and wear  heavy ,->ca boots. Possibly some of  thnn may "have donned ��������� "lummy"  - suits and you wonder why they adopt  such an Arctic-like rig. A view of the  boat after s-hc has reached the open  sen will make the reason apparent  to yen.  Probably all you will be able to see  will be a rapidly moving heap of white  water, amid which one or two heads  appear indistinctly. If you could peer  down from an aeroplane upon this  travelling geyser .you would find the  submarine's conning tower sticking  up" in the middle of it, and would recognize how necessary warm, waterproof clothing was to the men on top  of \ that  structure.  Although you can discern but little  of her. the boat is awash���������that i.s.  travelling as high out of the water as  she can. Presently she gives a heave  forward and every part except her  conning tower disappears from sight.  By partly filling her tanks the. boat  has trimmed for /diving. The men  who were "on deck" have dropped  ���������through, the conning' tower, closing  Iho cupola after 1hem, and every  member of the crew is now at his  po-;!   below. ������  And as long as ihe boat remains  "down" he must, stay there. In these  underwater craft there is little' room  for moving about. A man may be at  the tank, he may be at the tubes, or  he may bo at any other of the stations,  but wherever he be there he must stop  with his whole mind concentrated upon tin. task allotted to him. Son).,  boats have a liny cabin for the officers  hut if the men want, a nap they must  take it on the floor. This, however, is  no hardship to a bluejacket, who i.s  fible to sleep comfortably anywhere.  Foi sleeping there is 1,0 lime in a submarine when she is on the move.     .,-������  Remember, they cannot smoke, they  cannot cook anythii"*. and consequently must live upon "tinned tack,"  while if they wanted to talk the noise  of the machinery would prevent them  from doing so. Enclosed in this steel  shell they are shut away in the depth--  of the sea, and only the officer at the  periscope knows audit of what may  lie happening on the surface.  The. .air in the boat i.s warm and!  heavy., and grows more vitiated and/  "rdeopifying" the longer she stays  "down.". As for the "feeling," it resembles somewhat'that of being stuck  in a "tube" elevator for a long period  ���������and one can imagine what an unpleasant'sensation that would'be.  Ah eerie feature of this underwater  voyaging i.s that although a suhiria-  rine'K crew can see. nothing outside  their boat, and do not know from one  moment to another what peril they  may be running into, they can-feel a  great ileal. Every knock, every thump,  every scrape outside the hull i.s audible to them. Ami they do not know  at what moment any one of these  knocks, bumps or scrapes, may mean  the end of all  things for them.  War holds many perils for the sailor  who dares the depths in a submarine.  Death stands ever .'it his elbow and  frequently, stares him full in the face.  But the stout, fellow never quails nor  falters, never turns aside from nib  job. nor shows the slightest symptom  of fear;  indeed, he feels none.  All the officers and men who man  the British submarine flotillas are volunteers. They know that for tliein  there is no escape should mishap befall their boat, yet respite its hardships and dangers there i.s never any  lack of mori willing to take on thir,  work.  It often happens that .1 submarine  has to "go under" altogether, periscopes and all, to lie on the bottom  and wait, chancing whatever may  come to her in the process. At such  times the crew are absolutely cut off  from the world, and they can never feel any certainty of breathing tlie  A   Combination     of     Poisons    Which  Account for the  Deadly and, Dis-  tructive Properties of Beer  It has been shown that beer contains three poisonous substances, alcohol, lupuliii, and hop acids. The  alcohol has a tendency to excite, the  lupulin to make stupid and the hop  acids work havoc on the kidneys,  which later causes congestion of (he  liver and heart. This combination  of poisons, the one to enforce the  other, accounts for beer being so much  more destructive to life than whiskey  or brandy. Whiskey drinkers often  live to be old men. but we see the  beer drinkers dropping off all around  at an early age, under the names of  Bright's .Disease, Dropsy, Heart Failure, etc. These cases might properly  be called what they really are���������Deaths  from Boer.  Beer has no inviting taste Apart  from the alcohol which it contains.  Brewers themselves say, in a pamphlet  which they publish, that "beer would  be better without, alcohol, if it could  be made attractive to the taste."

From  my own professional experience I believe that three men break away from  whiskey to one that, gives up drinking beer Medical men often advise  those who cannot do without drink  to chop beer and take whiskey instead.

Mr. J. Saxon Mills, a writer on  Imperial topics, presents some facts,  bearing on Ihe general subject. He  dispels the prevalent idea that India  has an inexhaustible supply of fighting men. "The vast majority of the  Indian races," he affirms, "are entirely without fighting instincts or  military aptitude, and it has been  difficult in the past to keep up the  regiments drawn from the Sikhs and  Ghurkas. who are the principal warriors of India."  In the West Indies and in Africa,  where British rule obtains, the black  races have shown conspicuous brav-  try. discipline and ability to aim.  This is especially the case in regard to tribes domiciled in the heart  of the Afiiean Continent, who still  live under thebaic] organization of clan  and chieftain,' and retain much of the'  old warrior tradition. As an example  of their intelligent appreciation of the  piesent war, one chief desired the  Home Government to send out aeroplanes that his young men might  acquire a knowledge of aviation, and  of grenades that they might use them  instead of assegais. ,  Mr. Mills, believes that there are  at le.T-t, 250,000'splendid troops to be  lecruited from Basutos, Zulus and  other tribes scattered throughout  Cape Colony.

In the  years between 1011 nnd the outbreak  of war in 1014 this great disproportion  had been materially increased by  an  unprecedented   volume,   of   male   emigration  fo the  great  Dominions,  and  particularly   to   Canada.

His own family has  grown up and flown the family nest,  and he wants to hear the sound of  children's voices about his steading  airain and the ring of their laughter.  Hearing of our scheme and desiring  fo help us in the work, his offer was  the tangible expression of his sympathy with our purposes, his only stipulations in regard to the family being  that the widow should be Scotch, that  she should not drink whiskey, and  that the children should not, smoke  cigarettes. As it happens, the woman  about whom I was exercised is a Devonshire woman���������a:farmer's daughter,  able lo milk/make butter and cheese,  handle a team of horses, and do any  kind of work about a farm���������and the  farmer waived his nationality preference; so the family will be sent, out  to him."in' due course."  If, as in this case, widows .icvii*s  torned to farm life are placed with  their young children upon farms in  Canada, there is every reason to suppose that the. carrying out, of the project, of the Salvation Army will be' a  good thing for ihe Dominion as well  as for the United Kingdom. A large  surplus of women in Great Britain  find a corresponding surplus of men  in'tlic overseas Dominions must prove  a moral danger, as well as "an economic  disadvantage, and the. Empire will be  the stronger for every well considered  project to secure equalization of the  sexes.���������Toronto Globe.  who   have   been     reported   . missing  A New York Editor Exposes a Perennial   Humbug  ( Not   long   ago,   says 'the  New  York  Independent,"   the   editor   received  tlie following letter:  Dear Sir:���������I have been asked by a  friend of mine to help this party along.

Before the parcel post made a connecting link between city customer  and faim kitchen there was little  chance of making any small quantity  of farm or garden produce profitable,  but nowadays the woman who will  learn to put up fine goods can build  up a profitable market for all she has  to spare.  Some days the" supply of cherries,  currants, berries or other material is  far too small to pay, making a trip  to town; but if made into jam, jelly,  conserve, marmalade, cheese, leather,  chutney, preserve, pickle, bar-le-duc,  or other of the heavier sauces or relishes, they are ready for market when  you arc ready to let them go. and the  prices that such goods command pay  for all the trouble taken in their preparation.  Right here is where one part of the  preparedness for the battle against  loss should be made, by the early  purchase of supplies of sugar, spices,  cups, paraffin and other things that  mav be needed in tlie work. Most  of "these things eveiy reader knows  all about, but some may not know  that there is available, in different  sizes, a fibre cup, with air-tight cover,  that is better than glass for shipping  purposes, because it is practically unbreakable and much lighter. . For|  home use it is fine, because it is  opaque and does away 'with the need  for a dark closet for storage, or the  bothersome wrapping to exclude the  light.  Sometimes a quick market can be  made for the goods as fust as prepared. With other customer.-, where  a family is small, the demand may  be for a variety, and where one would  take a dozen cups of one sort the  other would want only one or two of  a kind; What then? Well, it is simply  another phase of being prepared, for  from the first cherry or currant to the  last frot-nipped wild grape, or the  even later barberry, the materials are  at hand, and some women who could  not have a large stock of one sort  could, with little trouble, make up  these assorted lots. All the melon  family can be utilized in making th*--  finest of preserved, candied, carrot  and pumpkin defy recognition in the  fancy fruit role.  Prove your ability ,and if you arc  proud of your goods, select a name,  or copyright a trademark and build  up a name for your products that will  give you your price anywhere ""  Furrow.  The Irish Problem  Irishmen of all parties and creeds  have been fighting the common enemy  together with the Englishmen, Scotsmen. Welshmen, Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, and South Africans; and how can we be so bankrupt in statesmanship as not to secure  for the fufure settlement enabling  Irishmen to live in harmony within  their Island, and at the same time  establishing Irish national sentiment  as a reconciled and'satisfied aspiration  making for the strength and not the  weakness of the Empire? Lastly, it  should be evident to every Irishman,  us to every Briton, that an early solution of this 'problem would make a  real addition to the strength of the  Empire in its present hour of strain.  Everybody-,who wants to win the war  must recognize, that, whoever helps  on an Irish settlement helps to win  the war, and whoever hinders it hinders winning the war. And when the  struggle is over, how much better able  the Empire will be to make head  against the problems which will then  throng in upon'it, if the ancient sore  has been Sealed beforehand.���������London  Chronicle. ������������������      .   .  Bovine'Blue Blood  Bright farmers hold no longer to  the theory that a cow is a cow. On  the eontiary, ihey stick to the principle that a good cow is an excellent  investment and a poor cow is a  waste. That sale at Coopersburg of  12G animals for $80,000 proves that  that the bright farmers have their  pocket-books in hand ready to nay I ir  pure blood. The man who gave $3,000  for a cow knows that she is cheaper  than another cow which would cist  him 950. A cow is a living mach'ne  which converts" hay, grain and fodder into milk, and the greater her capacity to perform this process of con-  veision the better cow she is. One  of the best things our agricultural  schools have taught is the knowledge  of the superiority of first rate stock  of every kind over inferior stock It  has come to a point where a knowing  farmer,.can measure the quality of  other fprmers easily by the cows no  keeps.���������From the Philadelphia Public  Ledger.

I like the farm and I am going  to stay with it," said a young man  who had just completed the short  course in a Middle Western college  of agriculture. .    ������  "The first property that I remember  ever having owned consisted of some  crippled and 'runt' chickens which  had been given to me by a neighbor."  I cared for them and when they were  sold I had three dollars to invest in  clucks. In the duck deal I also put  all the pennies I had received from  mother for gathering up the eggs. The  next season I-sold ducks and eggs to  the value of $17.85.  "I added some savings from other  sources and was able to buy a grade  Hereford steer for $27.50. To pay for  the keep of this fellow I grew a patch  of coin ,and helped to replant and  weed all on the place. When the steer  was ready for market I sold it for  sixty dollars and bought a mule colt,  the pick of a bunch of twelve that  father had bought. I kept the mule,  broke it and worked it until it was  five-year old.  "It was just about this time that  the bank in which father is interested  voted to if sue some additional sto.'k.  Lsold the mule and, became a banker.  With the returns on. this investment,  added to from some small farm produce sales, I bought another steer.  When it __ was fattened I had left  seventy-two dollars, and with this and  more bank dividends I -branched out  in the cattle business, buying three  steers this time. These were fattened  with three or four carloads that father  was feeding, but I paid my part. These  steers brought mc $215.  "The spring after the three steers  were sold father was buying mules,  ���������'picking them up.' ~A very likely span  of three-year-olds was bought for S223.  The steer money and some of that  year's bank dividend  paid the  bill.  "Since that 'time I have bought a  wagon, a good set of harness and a  cultivator, making payment out of  the bank stock dividends.  "In the whiter of 1912-13 I bought  sixteen head of black calves, which  were sold next May for $800. The  money was invested in Shorthorn  cows, which with their calves are now  worth  twice  what they cost.  "Yes, I'm going back home. Father  was over here during Farmers' Week,  and although he has always believed  in up-to-date methods he is stronger  than ever for them now because of  his visit.

The Future of India  Men who are good enough to fight  the battles of the Empire in France  cannot be denied the gift of at least  a great measure of autonomy in their  affairs at home. But the whole atmosphere of our lelations to India  will certainly be found to have undergone a change as the result of the  war. India has identified herself with  the Empire in a manner never dreamt  of hitherto; she can no more be treated  as an appendage, to be dragged inertly in the wake of the living body  of the Empire. Certainly she can no  more be "forgotten."

"^  '-  ,-X  \--/?f  Canada's First Farmer  The first farmer settler in Canada  who lived on the produce of the soil  was Louis Hebert, an apothecary from  Paris, who landed in Quebec in 1617  with his wife and children, and at  once started to clear and cultivate the  soil on what Is now the site of the  Cathedral of Quebec, of the Seminary  and of this part of the Upper Town  extending from Ste. Famille street, to  the Hotel Dieu. At that time that  part of the city was called "Hebert'3  Farm." With a spade as his only  tool, he worked and re-worked the soil  until he was ready to receive seed.  He threw in the seed from France!  planted apple and rose trees, and.at  last, saw undulating in the breeze, the  golden ears, the flowers and fruits  fiom his motherland. The third centenary of the landing of Louis Hebert.  will be commemorated in Quebec in  1917, and a Citizen's Committee has  been formed to erect a monument to  the first farmer of the colony.  that  just  O'Toole���������Phwat's the matter  ye didn't spake to Mulligan  now?

A note has been receiyed from  the Provincial Woman's Suffrage Referendum Association,  asking for space, of course without payment. As the husbands  are not any too liberal in ad7  vancing* money for campaign  purposes, we gladly give them  space. If woman's suffrage becomes law, the ladies cannot  make a poorer selection of material for cabinet positions than  their., fathers, husbands, sons  and-brothers have done. And,  then,- some of the. husbands,  under proper legislative enactments, may become household  utilities instead of bar room  nuisances. The ladies are mild  in their campaign methods.  Here are a few sentences from  their circular to the press: " To  prevent any possible misconception, the association would point  out that, if Woman's Suffrage  is carried by a clear majority  of those voting on the question  at the election on September  14th, the women shall have the  vote after March 1st, 1917, no  matter whether a Liberal or  Conservative government is returned to power.
