It   is   a   very timely   protest  that   is   made   to' us  about the  substitution of the X^for Christ  in bur use* of, tlio.Jword Christmas.    Of  course it must not be  forgotten that  the formula bo-  began with the use of the cross  and   the  letters "mas" after it.  But in these  modern  days  the  cross aas become the X. Gradually   our  Christmas   cards  and  banners have adopted tho words  '���������Merry Xmas" until itisrapidly  becoming the exception to find  tke word Christinas   used.    Let  us  spell   out  the^ word Christmas,   and   insist   upon   buying  only those cards *ind using only  tho-*e  decorations   that do  so.  The X may Avell  be  left for its  indication     of    the    unknown  quantity "in   mathematics.     It  does   not  belong   in   the   word  Christmas.���������The   Ladies* Home  Journal.

H. Newman, secretary  of the Canadian Seed Growers' association, upon his return from an extensive tour of the praine" provinces.  "It is hard to compute its value. Although it was only first distributed  about five years ago, -it is now the  most popular wheat in Western Canada, and probably seventy per cent,  of this year's crop was thc Marquis  strain. I think I am safe in saying  that if the Red Fife wheat had been  grown all over the country and "Marquis had not been produced, we would  this year have a crop of fifty million  bushels less, which al prevailing prices would have meant a loss to" the  country of from fifty lo seventy-five  million dollars."  It should be added that it was Mar-  Hiige Arms Output  Italy Now Has Adequate  Supply of  Munitions From Its Own  Plants  The enormous progress that the  manufacture of munitions in Italy is  making was revealed for the first time  by Premier Bosello in a recent speech.  Notwithstanding her poverty in iron  and other raw materials and the high  price of the transportation of coal,  the premier said today Italy was able  to manufacture munitions not _ only  for herself, but to supply her allies.  "She had 900 military establishments of thc first class going and 800  auxiliary factories, which are worked  by 425,000 hands, of whom 45,000 arc  women," said the premier.^ "Italy is  now making as many guns in a month  as she made in a year formerly. Her  machine-gun output has multiplied  six hundred times and that of shells  one hundred and ten times, tier automobile output also has increased,  while thc aviation industry is making  rapid strides."

The Old-Fashioned Hymns  Q|d Hymns Sound Sweeter Than the  Modern Compositions  An old Tennessee darky got up in  a mass meeting of negroes attending  the national Baptist convention in  Kansas City the other night, called  the choir down for not singing an old  time hymn like it ought to be sung,  and then showed them how to' sing  it.  "Dat ain't de way my mammy used  to sing it down in de cotton fields,"  he declared, interrupting the chorister, a modern  musician.  "AmenI" shouted thc older members of the congregation, and then in  a little while he had them all singing  thc old hymn in a way that would  take you plumb lo glory.  We didn't hear thc singing, of  of course, but we've heard some modern choirs, and also we remember  how in thc days of our forefathers  even white folks used to sing the old  hymns. So we can imagine how it all  happened. Wc arc quite sure had we  been there we should have added our  "Amen!" lo those of the congregation.  Wc wouldn't say a word against  modern choirs or modern hymns for  the world. But we can remember a  time, before the day of salaried choirs  and anthems and such, when folks  used to sing like lhey had religion  sure enough. They didn't put lhe  trills and quavers of the modern singers in their singing, perhaps, and the  hymns , didn't, sound so much like a  cross between an opera and an old  cotillon tune as the new-fangled  hymns do. But lhey sang like they  I meant it, and_ while we are not a  musical highbrow and could not tell,  the difference between a sonata and  a* symphony if we heard them, we  will make bold to say that those old  hymns sounded sweeter as they rose  to the throne of the Most High than  any modern hymn that ever was composed.���������Star-Telegram, Fort Worth,  Texas. -���������  EJ  ���������  ���������y  is wearing and dangerous because fAe inflamed,  mucus-filled tubes interfere with breathing and the  fresh air passes through that unhealthy tissue.

The  London Daily  Express publishes thc  following as proof  of this  assertion:  "War in the colonics is uncivilized  and does not come under Thc Hague  convention."  This remarkable statement was  made by a senior German officer in  the Kamcroons to a British officer.  It is printed in a blue book published  recently, describing such an astonishing series of German atrocities and  breaches of the rules of war as make  it impossible ever again to include  Germany among the civilized nations  of the world.  The papers include a series of official reports from October, 1914,.dealing generally with - German- cruelty  shown to the native inhabitants of the  Kamcroons and East Africa. Terrible  examples arc given of German cruelty to natives, including women, because of their British sympathies.  The Germans hanged the King of  Bomking and shot several of' his  people because they refused to take  up arms against the  English.  The blue book also contains particulars of the poisoning of wells in  (late) German Southwest Africa.  General Louis Botha states that on  the,,occupation of Swakopmund six  wells had been poisoned by means of  arsenic. In some instances bags full  of poison were found in wells.  ���������Major-General Dobell, reporting to  the war office on Jan. 28, from general headquarters, Duala, says that  thc Germans adopted a systematic  policy of extreme brutality towards  those natives who they considered  might favor life allied forces. "From  tiie military point of view'," he says,  "they obtained certain advantage by  their methods, in that the natives  were terrified, and afraid to give information of their movements."

The story told in The Globe by  Frederick Palmer smacks of the tales  'of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells,  when as yet man was limited in his  means of locomotion to the surface  of the earth and the surface of thc  sea. Ten years ago aviation was in its  experimental stage. Thc name had  not yet found its way into the standard dictionaries and encyclopaedias.  Practical men shook their heads and  dismissed  the  idea of aerial flight as  a  passing    craze that    would  run its [popularity,   and   without,   themotor  course and die a natural death.

Count Zeppelin, whose illness has  been accentuated by his opponents'  claims that the dirigible raids accomplished little or nothing, and cost  dearly, is determined to send a fleet  of seventy, or eighty monster aircraft  over London in thc near future.  He has become a fanatic on' thc  subject, and insists he will never  abandon his resolve to obliterate  Buckingham Palace, the Houses of  Parliament and every important edifice and monument in ��������� the English  capital  He will not commit himself, however, as to whether the destruction  of London will force the British to  demand peace, as his most fervent  partisans  continually argue.  Commenting on the reported  threats of Count Zeppelin to wieak  destruction on London, thc corrt.^  spondent's informant said:  "We are quite ready for Count  Zeppelin. Germany's air campaign is  a frightfulness campaign thc same as  the U-boat campaign earlier in the  war. but without any of the possibilities of the former submarine frightfulness."  If the Germans gradually shorten  their lines in the West, it was pointed out. it is certain they will bring  within the radius of allied aircraft  some of Germany's most vulnerable  points.

Says Mr. Belloc:  "The little, aged figure of that unfortunate man, whose- physical disabilities were perhaps in part responsible for the war, was to be seen  from the French lines-watching; the  battle from the ground behind. He  was distant from the nearest observers by more than thc common range  of a field piece; he was caught only  by the careful scanning of glasses;  but the figure and its surroundings  were unmistakable. Grouped about  him was the "brilliant staff" of the  newspapers and stage; and the White  Cuirassiers, which were to be the escort of his triumph, were massed to  the left and behind. He had also put  on for that day the white uniform of  that corps and the silver helmet. It  was pathetic and a little grotesque."

It will nelp lo  form an ideai of the extent of his  realm when if'is stated'that thc area  of- country held by him, mostly on  leasehold from the state governments, aggregates at least 50,000  square miles. These figures may  make Mr. Kidman look like a monopolist, but his biggest. leaseholds  are in places where nobody else went  and il is^ very likely that but for him  huge areas that are stocked would  otherwise not have been utilized. His  huge "out back" ventures, subject to  drought like Australia is, entails correspondingly big risks. Mr. Kidman  mentioned a couple of days ago, in  reply to assertions that his holdings  were not sufficiently stocked, that last  year's drought meant lo him a loss  of 28,000 head of cattre__on one run  alone. He mentioned also by way of  illustration of other difficulties, that  when he recently bought * "some"  cattle, including 18,000 cows, in  Queensland, with the intention of restocking drought-afflicted holdings in  South Australia, the Queensland government concerned itsclf-'only with  keeping down the price of meat within its own boundaries and refused to  let any of these cattle go-across the  border.  Ranch king and millionaire that he  is, Mr. Kidman remains surprisingly  modest in manner, speech and mode  of living. He left his home near Adelaide, South Australia, when 13 years  of .age, to make his own way in the  wprld. He was proud when, at the  start, he earned ten shillings a wees.  A little story about him published in  the press during the week is worth  repeating. It is to thc effect'that a  couple of. years ago, finding that he  had a little time to spare, he visited  Europe. Arriving in' London, litis  plainly dressed, weatherbcaten man,  in a slouch hat, and carrying a rather  old-fashioned valise, suddenly turned  into High Holborn-Road. For a minute he stood as if bewildered by the  roar and   surge   of  traffic.

For some years  now the poultry branch at the college  lias been specializing upon the Barred  Kock species as a utility breed of  poultry both for egg and meat production. During thc past year one  member of the flock laid 310 eggs  J. Ins is the greatest number of ego-s  laid by any hen of this breed in one  year, so far as official world's records  are obtainable.  The world's record in cgg-lavine  for hens of all breeds is 314 eggs in a  year and the Ontario champion had  ten days of her twelve-month still to  go when she fell a victim to the heat  and _ suddenly departed life. Pier  demise is believed to have spoiled a  new world record, since to the time  ot her death she was laying an egg a  day as regularly as clock-work.  Ihe Ontario Agricultural College  however, has not abandoned the coveted goal. The poultry department  this-year has produced more hens  who have" laid an average of 200 eggs  per year than ever before. Among  these successful layers the daughters  of the dead champion stand among  the highest producers, indicating that  they intend to keep up the family  tradition. ���������  So far as official records go, the  high-water mark in *egg-laying 'previously reached by the Barred Rock  species was 282- for thc year..

Prevention of Hail  Pen Picture of Prairies  By a Western Author  Robt.-J. C. Stead Contributes to the  ." Wealth of Canadian Literature  in  His  New Novel  Western   Canada  affords  a  natural  setting     for     literary    masterpieces,  with   its  wonderful     background     ot  prairie  and   mountain,  but,  generally  speaking, literary    men    have as yet  made   no  serious  attempt  to  do   the  ! French Invention  Which Is  Said to  Prevent the Formation of Hail  In most parts of Canada we arc  particularly free fiom those, disturbances of nature which involve the  destruction of life and property.  Of course we have our own troubles. In the east there are gales and  often high tides, which inundate  large^ areas. In the west there are  the prairie twisters," which sometimes wreck a whole city. But nothing like the national disasters of I  other countries has ever overcome  us.  _ But there is much damage occasioned each year by lightning and  hail. In Europe out of every 2,000,000  deaths about two are caused by lightning. In South Africa the number is  5:>, and in this country not more than  eight.  Hail damage alone causes much destruction in South Africa. Because  or this the South African farmers arc  particularly interested in a French  device known as "Parahail," which is  supposed to prevent hail from forming in the upper regions.  A parahail is simply a tall steel and  copper post extending down into permanent moisture,- and it acts on <he  same principle as does a lightning  rod.  No theory, was involved in thc invention. It was observed that'in the  vicinity of thc Eiffel Tower in Paris  no hail ever fell. The same was observed in other places where tall towers had been erected. The French  Government became interested, and  in 1915 exhaustive experiments were  carried out regarding the mailer. It  has becn demonstrated that even oid-  mary lightning conductors ,have a  modifying influence on the formation  of hail.  The theory is that atmospheric  electricity is necessary in order that  hail may be produced. , Otherwise  the moisture falls in large soft flakes  of snow. Meteorologists never have  been unanimous regarding ideas of  the formation of snow, hail and frozen rain���������for, by thc way, hail is not  simply frozen rain. Therefore the  electric theory, improbable as it may  seem, is not antagonistic lo facts  which  we already possess.  The posts used in the experiments  in France cost about $1,000, and were  creeled two and a half miles apart  each way. One post is reckoned lo  protect about 4,000 acres. This  means that the average annual expense per acre should not exceed two  or three cents.  It may be* that the posts which  have proven so 'effective under  French conditions as to interest the  Freuci Government in experimentire  with them in the year, 1915/ will not  prove  practical  under  Canadian  con  Pastoral Scenes Near  The Firing Line  Barbed  Wire Used  to Prevent C  Knocking  Over  Aiming Post."  One can haidly tell where peace  ends and war begins in this country.  I saw a field with one or two rather  fresh shell holes in it, from which thc  grain was being harvested. Farmers  carry their operations up to and even  beyond our gun positions. In fact, we  drove our guns and wagon into a field  which had becn manured and partly  plowed.

Heralded by a feeble  and unhappy wailing, there arrived  in the arms of'a head nurse and with  an ��������� undcr-nurse in his train, the pre-  * cious'infant who appeared lo be his  mother's.  Lady Moorhampton sprang from  her" seat when "the nurses came in;  and dragging Mabin with her, went  to meet the child. Mabin was filled  with a sort of shuddering compassion  when she looked at thc boy who was  sitting 'upright on thc nurse's arm.  Although she had heard from Lady  Moorhampton that the child was a  year old, the wizened, miserable-  looking little creature was so small,  so thin, and so backward that he appeared to bc no more than six or  seven months. His- hair was thin and  of a reddish color; his light eyes were  dull and lacking in any intelligence  or fire; his skin was dry and yellow-  white in color; while iie kept up a  feeble moaning most distressing to  hear, as if he were all the time in  pain or at least in discomfort.  "Isn't he a beauty?" cried Lady  Moorhampton, as she opened thc  woollen shawl which Was wrapped  round the wretched child, and displayed him proudly to Mabin. "Of  course, if you admire coarse, over-  fcd-looking babies, you won't aduiire  Edred. He always has had that extremely refined and delicate look.  Isn't he thc image of Lord . Moorhampton?" ...  Mabin made some confused icply  about being no judge of babies, and  Joe burst into a mocking laugh as  he said to his sister with malice:  "How-can you be so silly, Edith, as  to ask Miss Wrost questions which  you know neither she nor anybody  else can answer?

In the meantime, Lady Moorhampton rather ill-humoredly directed that  Mabin was to bc shown lo her room,  and promised to send her own maid  to find out whether she could lend  her anything in the way of dresses  and slippers while her luggage was  sent  for.  Mabin went upstairs with thc undcr-nurse, who introduced her formally to the .. housekeeper, Mrs.  Lowndes, a motherly old woman to  whom thc girl took a fancy at once.  Mrs. Lowndes led the way to a  room on thc second floor: large, airy  and bright, and, turning inside" thc  door, said with a significant look-���������  "I believe you will like this better  than the small room which I could  have given you on the first floor. Mr.  Wright and Captain Dalmainc and  the other visitors my lady has are  rather noisy people, and I'm sure you  would bc more comfortable as far as  possible  away  from   them."

Rheumatism comes from poisonous  acid in the blood. This is a medical  truth that every rheumatic sufferer  should realize.^ Their is only one way  to cure rheumatism���������it must be treated through the blood. All the lina-  ments and rubbing and so-called electrical treatment in the world will not  cure rheumatism, and the sufferer  who tries ' them is not only waiting  money, but is allowing the trouble to  become more firmly rooted in the system and harder to cure when the pro-  "Soft corns are difficult to eradicate, per remedy is tried.

It tells its  own story:  The statements that Southern Alberta can honestly make respecting  its grain crop this year are such as  should prove a pouerftii incentive to  prospective settlers. There is no need  of drawing the long bow, or of unseemly boasting, lhe plain narration  of thc facts will suffice.  From the reports which the threshers arc turning in, it is apparent that  this season's harvest is an average  one only in comparison with thc phenomenal yields of a year ago. Measured by all other standards, it is itself  something to wonder at. The case of  the big Noble farm, on. thc Alder-  sydc-Kjpp branch of the C.P.R.,  which is expecting lo thresh at an  average rate of 52 bushels to thc  acre from 1,000 acres, and to beat the  world's record, is only an isolated instance. Records of 40,"45 and 50 bushels to the acre arc being reported so  often that the lianalion becomes a  commonplace. lhe fact is, every  farmer in the southern country who  has cultivated his land pioperly is  achieving splendid results, and thc  average production will bc such that  the compiler of publicity pamphlets  will hesuate to print the figures for  fear of being denounced as a licr.  Right here, in thc fertile district  which is tributary to Calgary, it can  be claimed in all truth that no more  abundant harvest and no grain of a  finer .quality is being produced this  year anywhere on thc continent. Let  us realize that wc are blessed indeed  in having the good fortune to dwell  in such a region. As thc mayor remarked after his recent trip, during  which he saw with his own eyes the  riches of the land, it is "a country of  solid prosperity." -  "Did you sec that?" yelled the excited man in thc Panama hat. "That  robber of an umpire calls Gilligan  out at third and Rafterty never come  within a foot of louchin' him."  "It looked that way to me," admitted lhe man beside him. "Still, I dare  say the umpire could see the play  better_ from where he was than we  could from up here."  "Ah, go on home I" retorted the  other savagely. "You ain't got no  business goin' to a ball game. You're  one of these blamed pacifists, that's  what you  are!"  Waste  There is no way in which our national habit of carelessness shows itself more clearly than in the size of  our garbage pail.

"Four successive lines,were swept  away, and the fifth went on without  hesitation, while two days later the  remnant was asked to make an attack-and they did it with the utmost  elan and good spirit.  "These troops," Mr. Churchill went  on, "1,200 selected out of a brigade of  4,000, swept over the parapets to,the  attack. You talk about the charges  at Balaclava and the Fusiliers at AI-  buera; even these.deeds pale by these  new divisions raised in the British  army. Needless to say, no account  of these achievements, other than a  very jejune account published many  months afterward, ha* reached the  public."  A Decent- German Doctor      '  As Mr. Philip Gibbs reports it from  the British lines, thc truth must be  in it. A captured German doctor  busy under shell fire with British  wounded is speaking:  "1 am not a fighting man. I did not  help to make this war. My work is  for humanity, and your wounded arc  the same to me as our poor suffering  men needing my help, which I am  glad  to give."  Has anything finer been uttered in  the war?
