The foregoing is about  all that can happen around this  printery next  week, except the  sheriff,   and   he'd   be   out   his  mileage, Some of the staff may  go joy riding, but the publisher  will not be responsible for debts  of  exhilaration   whether   they  be "contracted in booze foundrys  or at pray erf ests.

A recent issue of the Evening Telegram of St. John, Nfld.,  has a lengthy and most interesting account of a public official reception tendered to Surgeon-Major Cluny Macpherson  on his return from the front,  where he had *onn action aud  rendered mo������t valuable service,,  to his conn'trv*on  the  dju'erent'  arenas of the great struggle���������  France, Solonika and Egypt.

This man was  born two thousand years too late.  "Judas could have sub-let the  the contract to Jiim aud made  money."  Saturday   last  Robert   Boyd,  aged   10,   only  son   of  Mr. and  Mrs.   Robert   Boyd   of Hedley,  was taken to Prince ton by auto  to be operated   on   for appendicitis.    On  arrival  at Princeton  it was decided that he could not  stand the journey to  the coast.  On Monday  afternoon   the two  physicians    at   Princeton   performed   the  operation,    but  it  was  then  too   late.     The   boy  died at .'*> o'clock   the  following  moruin.

Surgeon-Major Macpherson was on the Flanders  front when the Germans first  used tho gas and he bore the  'lion's share in solving the difficulty thus presented. Shortly  after the gas surprise was  sprung, a Hun was captured  with a respirator in his posses-  session. Medical men at once  set about the task of adapting  and improving on the Hun invention. That perfected by  Surgeon-Major Macpherson was  declared the 'best, and what is  known as the "MacPhorson Gas  Hehnet" is now in use iu the  entire British army.  contributing one  funds,  There  sands of dollars worth of business annually in this district  that are not  cent towards patriotic  and some others are giving a  few dollars annually.

Every Soldier to Carry Two Discs  In future each officer and soldier  in the British army will be supplied  with two identity discs, to be suspended from the neck.  Though no explanation of thc_ order for the innovation is given, it is  thought that thc idea is to use the  second disc for .the preservation of  the identity of a body, after the first  is removed for thc purpose of the  casualty list.  Thc second disc will be suspended  by six inches of cord from the upper,  the  former being red and   thc latter ' annual   wool   sale   held   at   the   farm  It Can Only Be Cured By Thoroughly Enriching the Blood Supply  ' Not  sq<-long ago  rheumatism  v/asTi  looked upon as a pain in the muscles  or joints brought on by exposure to  dampness or bad weather. .Now doc-.  tors know    that it    is  rooted in  the-  blood, and while exposure may start'  thc pairi, nothing but the removal of  the poisonous    acid from the    blood  will cure the trouble.    It is a  waste  of  both   time   and   money  to   try   to,  cure     rheumatism     with     liniments,!  poultices or anything that only goes  skin deep.    Rubbing lotions into  the .  skin may give temporary relief, but it  actually  helps   to   circulate  thc  pois- ���������  onous  acid 'more  freely  and  thus  in  tlie  end     increases   the  trouble,   and  perhaps   leaves   thc   sufferer- perman-)  ently crippled.      The    one cure,  thc  only cure, for rheumatism is to drive  the acid which causes thc trouble put  of the  blood.    To  do  this .no  other  remedy can equal'Dn Williams  Pink  Pills, which actually make new blood,  sweeps out the poisonous acid, loosens  the  stiffened,  aching joints,   and  bring good health and comfort. Here  is the proof.    Mr. Joseph  Crouse, of  Nincvah,   N.   S.,  says:   "For , several  ���������years--I   vvas   severely  afflicted   with  rheumatism.    The trouble seemed* to  locate in  all  the joints  in  my  body,  and my suffering at times was most  .intense,   and   the   disease   greatly  interfered with my activity.    I doctored  steadily for a long time," but the trouble  was  obstinate and  did  not  yield  in the least to the doctors' treatment.  One  day  a   friend  told  mc  of  some-  cures of rheumatism by the use of Dr. I  Williams Pink Pills and strongly ad-!  vised me to try them.    I did so, and j  to    my    great    surprise    eight boxes,  .completely cured mc of the trouble,!  and I was as  supple, active and  free j  from pain as ever I had been in my l  life.    Better still, I have never felt a  symptom of thc trouble since."  You  can  get   these  pills  from   any  medicine dealer or by mail at 50 cents'  a box or six boxes for $2.50 from the  Dr.    Williams Medicine    Co., Brock-  ville,  Ont.

In  this article , the well-known writer,  Mr. J. Saxon Mills, goes so far as to  suggest that the Mother Country in  dealing with this problem might follow the example of the Dominion. He  says: ���������      -:'    '  One of the most difficult .questions  England has to face at present is how  rto deal -with: the broken men who are  now streaming in from the'battle-  fronts. The.adequate answer to that  question has not yet been found. It  is  not    even   certain    that  the  main  of    idleness obviated    by employment.

There   will  be  monihly   sailings   and   lines  in solving the problem arc yet fully  grasped;.--For example, we are in danger of thinking that our responsibility forVthe wounded soldier'.is fulfilled when he is no longer fit for military service, and when he is pensioned and discharged from the army.  When thus discharged he loses the  benefit of the special treatment provided while he remains in uniform,  and he is at once thrown-upon the  lists of the already over-worked panel  doctors. This will not do at all. The  nation has a- larger and longer responsibility to its disabled veterans  than that. -Itmay be useful to notice  how Canada deals with the problem.  We may learn much from the admirable system which has been establish:-  cd by the Dominion Government.  ..=. By an order-in-council, dated June  30, 1915,    the Canadian    Government  longs tS Class II. or III.,, that is,  if he has to receive further treatment  as a convalescent, or has a permanent disability of any kind, he is passed on to the appropriate institutions.  If he is an ordinary convalescent he  will be sent to the hospital nearest  his home; but if he requires special,  such as orthopaedic treatment, he will  go where that is supplied.  ���������' What I wish to especially emphasize is that at all these hospitals,  schools are held where training of an  elementary and non-vocational character is given in English, French,  mechanical drawing, arithmetic,  wood-carving, etc. These classes are  open to all inmates, whether they are  able to return to their former occupations or not. But, from these  homes  and   hospitals,   the  men 'who  , . ���������..  _,   , arc not so .able can be sent on, after  formed, at the instance pf Sir Robert,.tliey   have been pensioned    and dis-  Bordcn, - a  Military    Hospitals    ana   charged  Convalescent Homes ' Commission,  "to deal with the provision of hospital accommodation and military convalescent homes in Canada for officers, non-commissioned officers and  men of the Canadian Expcditionary  Force who return invalided from tlie  front."

The Socialist political party of Germany, the  four millions ofthe Social .Democracy  and their leaders, count for absolutely nothing iu the conflict now raging.  The kaiser, the general staff, and the  leaders of thc Junker party in the  Bundcsrat arc more interested in  what some unknown senator or representative says about Germany in  the congress of the United States  than in what the Socialists say in the  Reichstag. There has been much  nonsense printed about this matter in  America.  Let me repeat���������knowing the German Socialist movement perhaps as  well as anybody in America���������let tlie  working people and their leadership  in thc "Allied countries be warned  against fraud. Militarism, war and  schreckliehkeit might have been and  were expected of the kaiser and the  funkcrs. Scheidemann, Sudekum,  David, and their 4,000,000 of mentally  delinquent followers held out other  hopes. These Socialist leaders of  Germany have been most contemptible traitors to their following, to  the past of their party, and to every  decent, principle of human civilization.  Tt cannot be repeated too many  limes���������the people of Germany do no  political thinking. They arc possessed  of absolutely no individual conscience in public matters of any sort.  And as regards every aspect of foreign relations, the German Socialist  party is exactly the same as thc  other parties of Germany, except  that   its   leaders   arc   more   dishonest  that convalescent homes, where discharged soldiers would spend a short  time for rest and"refreshment, would  be the chief requirement, and scores  of houses and hundreds of workers  were placed at the disposal of the  Commission. "But this idea was soon  dispelled when it was found that the  treatment of thc disabled soldiers was  a more serious and lengthy business.  Months or-even- weeks spent in the  atmosphere of such a home would  tend to injure rather than strengthen  the physical and moral fibre. Let us  hear what Mr. J. S. McLennan, a  member of. the Commission,-has to  say on this subject in his introduction to the Commission's special bulletin:���������  The supply of comforts which in  ��������� many cases were luxurious, the relaxation of discipline, the treating  of men as one treats a civilian patient in the interval between ilhiess  and the resuming of ordinary occupation, which might do no harm if  the experience was to be counted  in days, are most seriously detrimental to the best interests of thc  men when extended over thc prolonged periods which have been  found unavoidable. The first conception of the homes was that they  were places of relaxation; the right  one which experience has taught  us to realize is that they arc places  of rehabilitation.     In  other words,  to technical institutions, ag-.  ricultural colleges, schools of telegraphy, etc., where they can be taught  new occupations which their disablement does not prevent them from following. And that is not all, for employment is practically assured lo  them by the Provincial Commissions  (under the Federal. Military Hospitals Commission) which have charged  themselves with the duty of finding  work and wages for thc returning  veterans.  I should add that the men in the  homes and hospitals are fully maintained and that their pay continues.  Thc whole system, which I have  sketched in the barest outline, is  quite admirable, and fully realizes the  object of the Military Hospitals Commission which Mr. McLennan defines  ���������in  these words:  The aim of the Commission is to  do its best for the physical and  economic well-being of the man,  rind to bring to bear on him such  influences that he may perform for  his country a service not less important than those of thc firing line,  namely that, instead of being, an  idle ward of the State, he becomes  a shining example to the young, of  self-dependence, of courage, and  perseverance in overcoming disabilities.  Tt would be an" excellent thing if  we had a system similar to this, and  based upon the same.sound principles,  established in these islands.  What Longueval Looks Like  Longucval is one of thc most ut*  terly desolated of villages. At one  point at its northern end two spikes  of stone, perhaps the height of a man,  stand up white in thc sunlight.

Pepper in "Tear" Shells  A Modern Horror Added to the War  By the Huns  A new    and    frightful weapon    of  warfare introduced    by the  Germans  is  the lachrymal shell, and  considerable speculation has  turned upon the  nature of the  tear-exciting substance  employed.      It  is  likely,    says     the  Lancet,, that    pepper has    been used,  judging    from    the    reports of those  who have been  exposed to  this baptism.    Pepper has been used in    civil  ���������affairs  to   bring about  the  surrender  ���������of persons who have shut themselves  up and defied    capture    by    ordinary  -means.       The  plan  has usually been  -to burn the pepper on a shovel, and  to direct the stream of irritating acrid  inmes produced into the apartment..  The    tear-exciting    constituent'' -is  ���������probably capsicinc -driven out of the  pepper by heat. Common pepper, cayenne pepper, or the dried.chilli gives  ���������off an extremely pungent, vapor which  is absolutely irrcspirable and exceedingly irritating.    It is reported    that  .the enemy is paying a very high price  for pepper, and it has been  assumed  that   the   condiment   was  wanted   for  ���������use in this way as-'an offensive weapon, but it is  quite  conceivable that  paprika, or    red   Hungarian    pepper,  suits: their   purpose   better.        Large  quantities of this pepper are grown in  Hungary, where it is a very favorite  ���������condiment, having the qualities of a  mild cayenne.       Tear  shells     are    a  modern horror added to war, but.pro-  -tectiye.  measures    are comparatively  simple to adopt.  To Teach Canadians  Value of Savings  AH Bank  Branches to Be Used By  Great Government Scheme  In-���������carrying out the campaign of  National Savings for War Purposes  which he has in view, the Canadian  Minister of Finance will utilize the  .3,000 or more branches of the chartered banks and the Post Office savings branches throughout the Dominion. _  The Minister's idea is to provide  facilities, whereby individual savings  from one dollar up may be accumulated in a. special war savings account until a certain sum is reached,  when the privileges will be given the  depositor of purchasing a War Saving, certificate of the Dominion Government, which will be most attractive as. a short-date investment security and whose terms will be such  as to encourage the holder to retain  it until maturity.  To work out the details of the proposal and arrange for thc effectual  co-operation of the banks, the Minister, has asked a committee of the  Bankers'Association to confer with  the Deputy Minister of France, who  has had the plans of the Minister  tinder* consideration for some time  past.  The carrying out of the campaign  will involve extensive advertising -by  both the Dominion Government and  the banks, and in this connection the  Minister favors a steady, persistent,  rational propaganda, and not one of  thc sensational or whirlwind variety.  Upon his return from England he  will speak throughout the country  upon the subject and arrange - any  further organization that may be necessary to make the scheme a success  Social Welfare Land Scheme  Will    Place    Families    on    40-Acre  Farms Under Best Conditions  With a view to establishing an ideal  community settlement along the  Greater Winnipeg water district line,  the provincial government has cooperated with the G. W. W. D. Commission" and acquired from the Dominion government' three "and ���������one-  half'���������townships'"'":in the . Birch River  district, 72 miles, east of Winnipeg.  This land'will be immediately placed  at the disposal of intending settlers  and will be- allotted to them as 40-  acre-farms. Homestead conditions  will apply; but:only married men will  be given the opportunity of taking up  one of these small farms. Very great  encouragements will be extended to  the men locating on these farms by  the provincial government. All preliminary improvements will be made,  a schoolhouse erected, while the city  of Winnipeg will purchase the.wood  taken ��������� from the land in clearing it.  J. S. Woodsworth, director of Social  Research Bureau for the three prairie  provinces, will apply in practice his  theories of improving social conditions.   '���������  The scheme is in the nature of an  experiment . of one of the popular  solutions advanced to meet the problem of handling returned soldiers,  and if successful the scheme will be  carried out on a broader scale with  the returned soldiers as the settlers.  The district which will be colonized  is very fertile, and the settlers will be  encouraged to go in for small fruit  farming, poultry and hog raising. E.  W. Kopecki has been appointed land  settlement agent, and will also act  as business agent in marketing the  produce for the settlers.  On the Firing Line  Artillery   Officer   Vividly   Describes  Horrors of the War  Writing from the front, a Canadian  artillery officer  says:  "The severity of the fighting  around here, which continues from  day to day, is almost past all imagination. Every new stretch of ground  over which we advance is "a wilderness, there is not one inch of ground  not torn up, there is not one brick on  another in any village. Whatever  trenches the Huns might have occupied have entirely disappeared in the  general, scheme of destruction. When  the infantry advance they improvise  a cover.for themselves by joining up  the shell holes which are as numerous  as the holes in wire netting. Bodies  of dead soldiers, British and German,  lie on the surface, if it can be called  a surface. We came across old German gun positions at various points..  Here we find ample traces of the  deadly work of our artillery in carcasses, horses,: wreckage, guns and  quantities of unused German .shells.  We sometimes find deep dugouts  ���������which in some mysterious fashion  have escaped the deluge of shells; If  one takes a journey down one of  these, it is to find' that where our  artillery has failed our infantry  bombers have succeeded. It is no uncommon thing to find dozens of Germans bombed to death before they  had time to emerge to meet the oncoming infantry. -These dugouts,  however, become fewer and fewer  the more we advance, for the Huns  have no time or no heart *o build  them before they are compelled to retreat again. Don't imagine all the  dead in these parts are Germans. I  wish to heaven they were. It is good  to know this, though we are-moving  in the right direction. The further  we go the less formidable are the fortifications we have to overcome."  Paper Pr'ces and J  Control of Forest Fires  Increasing the Yield  Protection of Forests Will Have an  Important Bearing on Future  Paper Supply  Independent of other causes operating to increase thc price of paper  to Canadian publishers, the constant  destruction of^spruce and balsam forest's by preventable fires has played  a serious role. Without question,  there is abundance of woods to meet  all demands ^ofpiaper'mills, but abundance and.accessibility, are frequently  two very different things. Transportation distances between the woods  and the mills ,are factors of first importance,' as not a few unsuccessful  Canadian and American paper mills  have been forced to realize. Every  additional mile-a paper mill is obliged to travel for logs, the costs of  the paper product will reflect on advance,     -s ,  ��������� E. H. Backus,'' president. of the  Minnesota and Ontario Paper Co., at  Fort Frances, Ont., stated recently,  that the increasing inaccessibility, of  pulp limits from the mills is making  paper . dearer. Unlike small sawmills, the permanently located pulp  mill cannoj: pack up its equipment  and follow the retreating forest. Forest engineers are agreed, however,  that.with care in operating limits and  thorough protection against fire, pulp-  wood forests can be perpetuated indefinitely; accessibility of supplies  need be lessened very little.  Up to the present stage in Canada  the lack of modern fire protection, for  which the governments as trustees of  the timber resources are chiefly responsible, has reduced thc near-at-  hand bodies. of pulp wood far more  than the actual cut of logs. The Northern Ontario fires of. last summer  are an illustration of this fact. In the  1,200 square miles devastated were  substantial quantities of paper making materials. In the same fire an  Ontario paper company lost 400,000  cords of wood, ready piled in the mill  yard. Quebec's 1916 fires also cleared  out large quantities .of spruce and balsam as well as white pine. The forest fire record in Ontario and Quebec  during the past ten years accounts  for vastly more forest wealth than  has passed into lumber and pulp. ,  If-'the pulp areas at the mill door  are allowed to disappear in flames,  the longer drive or rail haul automatically increases the cost of. manufacture. Without doubt, other causes  than unheeded fires are at the root  of the paper price advances in war  time,'" but it remains true that since  the first paper factory in Canada began to operate, the fire fiend has been  laying his tax on the paper consumer.

The Consumption of Eggs Is on the  Increase  It is-estimated that Canada and  Cuba, during the last twenty years,  received from the United States  about three-fourths of all the eggs exported by that country during that  period. This situation, however, has  now changed. As against an importation in 1913 of 13,240,111 dozen, we  imported in 1915 not more than  3,783,952 dozen. On the other hand,  while in 1913 we exported only 147,-  149 dozen, in 1915 we exported 7,-  898,322 dozen. This constitutes a  net increase in production, in two  years, of at least 17,100,000 dozen.  Practically, air of these exports went  to the United Kingdom. .  Notwithstanding the surplus in  Canada which these figures indicate,  prices during March, April and May  have remained at an extraordinarily  high level. For the first quarter of  the year of 1916, the price to producers, selling co-operatively, has been  at least 4c in advance of the price received for the same period in 1915.  For the month = of March, it was at  least 5c in advance, and for the  month of April at least 3c in advance  of last, year's price for these respective months. The demand for eggs  for local consumption, for storage  purposes and for immediate export  has rarely reflected in the prices just  quoted. Heavy domestic consumption  in the face of the high price for  meats, partly explains this condition.  Confidence in the export demand on  the part of the produce trade confirms it from another direction. Notwithstanding increased production,  the egg and poultry business in Canada is in a very strong position at  thc present time.  Under these circumstances, we  believe that it will be a very wise  practice to raise as many chickens  as it is possible or practicable to  handle.    Early hatched    chicks   make  good winter layers.      Rough    grains . - ,  will probably be produced in abund- certain gentleman of the name of An  ance in Canada this year and the  feeding of poultry at a profit should  be materially assisted from this  source. Eggs at winter prices are  a paying proposition, in any event.  Poultry, alive or dressed, under present and prospective market conditions, can unquestionably be reared  and finished at a decided profit. A  good flock of poultry, if carefully  handled, will serve to prevent waste  on the farm and promote economy  in living expenses, such as is particularly necessary when all farm products are becoming so marketable  and so dear.

Millions Added to  Farmers' Wealth  By Use of Good Seed  "Xbout 40 million bushels of seed  is required to plant the annual crop  of cereals and potatoes in Canada.  This includes 32,821,000 bushels of  cereals and 7,179,000 bushels of potatoes," says the August issue of  the Agricultural Gazette of Canada.  "On the character of this seed the  value of the crop largely depends.  The secretary of the Canadian Seed  Growers' Association holds the view  that an increase per ��������� acre of five  bushels of wheat, ten bushels of oats  and ten bushels of potatoes may reasonably be looked for as a result of  using superior rather than such ordinary seed as many farmers plant.  "Dr. C. A. Za'vitz, professor of field  husbandry at the Ontario agricultural college, found by repeated trials-  that the yield of grain crops was increased 19 per cent, by the use of  large rather than small seed.'.:���������' Although no specific tests to prove the  advantage of the use of plump, vig-.  orous seed over that of poor, quality  have been carried out by the Dominion experimental farms, the Dominion  CereaUst holds the view that the difference in yield wouid average not  less than ten per cent. , This is for  good and poor seed of the same variety. There: is, moreover,; a vast differ ence,between varieties. From tests  carried oh by the federal and provincial governments it is estimated that  another ten per cent, advantage may  be secured by the use: of the best  sorts. That is to say, plump: seed of  one of the few leading varieties will  get ten per cent, more crop, than  plump seed of such ordinary varieties, as are, commonly used.  "It is surprising' that more farmers do not pay careful attention to  the quality and variety of their seed.  The Conservative commission have  looked carefully into this question.  In their agricultural survey in 19.15,  out of one hundred average' farmers  in each of four good Ontario counties, from eight to forty-seven per  cent, did not know the name of any  variety of grains sown. Only one  in each of two counties, and two  men in one county, were found - to  practise a systematic selection, of seed  grain, and but from two to eight per  cent, of the farmers questioned put  their seed grain more than twice  through the fanning mill. Surveys  made in many other parts of Canada  reveal even less careful work.  "Considering together the attention  paid to varieties selected, and the  preparation of seed with regard to  quality, it appears reasonable to estimate that the field crops of Canada  would be increased at least fifteen per  cent, if only plump seed of the best  varieties most suitable to the respective localities were planted. The cereal crop- of 1915 was estimated to  have had a value of $558,127,200, and  the potato crop of $35,964,000. Fifteen per cent, increase would have returned the magnificent addition of  $89,113,680 from improved seed alone.  But the use of improved seed also  tends to improvement in cultural methods, still further increasing the returns from the land.  "As an agent in working towards  this result, the Seed Fair holds a prominent place. Initiated by the seed  branch of the federal department of  agriculture, operated for a time on a  co-operative basis, then handed over  to the provincial departments of agriculture, along widi annual financial  aid, the Seed Fair is rapidly improving the agricultural industry.

Some say that in the Zeppelin  raid of August 1 over 6,000 persons  were injured. Others do not put the  losses even as high as a tenth part  of it. In the night of August 3, 15,000  persons are alleged to have been killed. This is possible, though not probable. The estimates of material  damage caused also vary. Some assert very definitely that in the two  nights damage amounting to $187,-  500,000 was caused. Others think it  safe to go only to $6,250,000." And  so on and so on. The world need  wait no longer for a successor to  a  Training Men Disabled  In War for the Land  Interesting Experiment Being Carried  on in England of Value  to Canada  Canadians are looking forward  with considerable hope to the arrangements, made and making, to establish   ex-soldiers  as' farmers.  First in order of importance, of  course, must be the Dominion government's plan. This, as the prime  minister assured Sir Rider ..Haggard  the other day, "will be satisfactory  to all .those who have at heart the  great purpose." For its details we  must wait till parliament meets.  Then there is the scheme embodied in the British Columbia "Soldiers'  Homestead Act." This includes a free  grant of land, and a loan of money  for improvements to each soldier settler, with exemption from all except  school taxes, and five years' exemp- -  tion from seizure for debt.  There is also thc scheme of the  Canadian Pacific Railway���������a development of the ready-made farm system,  the company devoted millions of dollars to this enterprise.  Most of the schemes proposed arc  for able-bodied men; and for general  farm work an able body is as necessary as an able mind. But some forms  of work on the land can be hopefully  undertaken even by men more or less  disabled.  ������������������������������������ The government, through its military hospitals commission, is already  giving-the .men at some of the convalescent ������������������ institutions instruction in  gardening and poultry-raising; and a  good deal of progress may be expected along these lines.  Canadians are therefore keenly interested in watching the similar experiments now being carried * on in  the- Old  Country.  In England, the first experiment in  the-programme of training disabled  soldiers for work on the land started  eight months ago at the Cheshire  County : Council's Agricultural College, and th,e result so far is regarded  as most promising.  Some of. the men have,.cither lived*  in the country or worked on the land  but all alike have shown considerable aptitude. They have been disabled in various ways. Two, for instance, have lost an arm, and one a  hand; but air three have shown themselves perfectly competent to do  goods work. In every case the country life and work in the open air have  been of benefit to them.  The main endeavor iias been to  make the men good all-round farmers. Some of them will be able to  manage small farms of their own;  others have obtained or are obtaining  sufficient practical knowledge to assist in gardening, dairy work, or poultry-raising.' All spend much more  time in actual work than in attending  classroom lectures,- but they " are  learning a little botany and chemistry, and enough veterinary surgery-  for simple purposes. Some of the  men have already been placed in  good situations.  One of the most urgent requirements of our own country is that our  returning soldiers shall be encouraged and assisted in every practicable  way to seize thc opportunities offered them for such training, and this  will be available not only at the Convalescent Hospitals, where a beginning can be- made, but afterwards at  the agricultural schools and colleges  which have offered to instruct men  disabled from returning to their previous occupation.  The government makes special  money allowances for the maintenance of the men and their families  while this instruction is being taken.  nanias.  It happened at a little town in  Ohio.

Rexford told his mother that  her grey hair was becoming to her because she was somewhat sensitive  about it, and was afraid that she was  getting prematurely grey. The song  and the music were written in 1870,  when Mr. Rexford was 22. Three  years later it was bought by a music publisher for $50 and Mr. Rexford  received but $25 as his share. A great  deal of money was made from the  song, thc first edition of which amounted to more than one hundred  thousand copies. "Silver Threads  Among the Gold" has a warm place  in thc hearts of thc people. It has  always proved popular on account of  its  simplicity and  peculiar  charm.  In the last thirty years before the  war Germany's agricultural workers  increased by very nearly .2,000,000;  Britain's decreased by a quarter of a  million. Germany increased her textile workers by 200,000; Britain's by  only 55,000. She increased her metal  workers���������iron, steel and engineering  ���������by more than 1,500,000 against Britain's increase of 500,000. She increased her miners by 1,000,000 against Britain's 500,000; her building  workers by 1,000,000 against Britain's  500,000, and so on in practically  every branch of industry. ^ ��������� W-il ii    <.*<tA.i*ti-&,jnii*.3*JiMytXH,.f,.*lA,itan-J*?-t,c^rie*l?*i* #���������'������������������"^'   ��������� "*    .-Cj.1lf ?������*X?iXl.Arr������Z.:rSTZ*%!lh  ���������4  THE      GAZETTE.

Moorhampton looked at his  wife with an expression of calm resolution most unusual with him. He  loved his own ease above all things  in this world, and having been spoilt  throughout thc whole of his life, and  most skilfully managed by Lady  Moochampton, who, with an appearance of unthinking frivolity, combined great astuteness where her own  interests and pleasures were concerned, he was the last'person to have  been considered likely to make a  stand    where his    personal    comfort  telephone on the writing-table.  "What alternative do you mean?"  He turned to her gravely.  "There arc some ver}- strange features about thc whole affair.    If I did  not   consult  my  lawyers,   the  matter  would certainly end in reaching    thc  hands of the police."  A deadly change came over the  flighty, fluttering hysterical woman  at those words. On thc instant she  lost her little silly airs .of irresponsible complaint and distress, and became a hard, careful, watchful creature, able to control her feelings sufficiently to take note of everything in  thc words, looks and demeanour of  the two people present.  With a white face and stealthy  eyes she stood, looking furtively  from her husband to the trembling  girl in the background.  "The police! What do you mean?"  she asked in a toneless voice.  "Well, there are unpleasant features about the story," he began drily.  "Thc story brought by this girl,"  said Lady Moorhampton, with a  flashing look of scorn at poor Mabin.  "The story brought by tiiis young  lady," said Lord Moorhampton with  dignity.  - "Who sent her here? Where does  she come from? Has she satisfied  you that this is not some made-up  story, concocted to get money out of  you?"  A   little   cry    broke   from   Mabin's  hot flashes, worry and sleeplessness surely  and without loss of time.  Get it now!   All druggists. ;  A Great Book Ercry Woman Should Have.

There was a long pause, aud then  the girl asked in a shy, constrained  voice, if she might go away.  He turned to look at her, without  a smile. She saw that his face had  lost the unruffled look of calm and  dilettante enjoyment of life she had  noticed when she first arrived, and  that he looked determined and solemn.;  \ ��������� ���������-���������  "You had better stay," he said, not  harshly, but with decision. "It is important that you and he should be  brought face to face,"that you should  repeat your story, and that wc should  both hear what he has to say."  In the meantime, however, Lady  Moorhampton -had'-been preparing  her brother for the coming ordeal;  she took her time over it, certainly,  for "it was not until a quarter of an  hour after she had left the room that  the sound of Joe Wright's voice  came to the ears of Lord Moorhampton and Mabin.  Wright was whistling as he came  along the passage and thumped- in an  off-hand manner on the panels of the  library door.  "Come in," said Lord Moorhampton, as he sat down in a chair by the  writing-table.  (To Be Continued.)  Fully Equipped  "I guess Old Mother Nature knew  her children."  "As to how?"

"Oh, no, no, of. course not," said  Mabin hastily. "I have nothing to do  with it."  "You had better leave that parf-of  the affair to be discussed with me  only, Edith," said Lord Moorhampton drily. "It does not concern Miss  Wrest in any way."  "May I go?" asked Mabin quickly.  "No," said Lady Moorhampton, replying for her husband. "You must  stay and tell me what you have told  him. I won't have any secrets kept  from mc. I want to know where I  am, and what sort of fables I have to  deal with."  Mabin. said nothing, but stood by  the armchair near the fire, unable to  pass thc angry figure standing between her and the writing-table.  From his side of the table Lord  Moorhampton spoke:  "We can't tell you any more now,  until T have seen your brother. Pray  tell him I must speak with him immediately."

Such   is  the  custom  of'  this   Old   England,   where   the   superior is not called chief, but leader; he  docs    not   command,    he   leads.    A  friend of mine told mc some time ago  that tiie average  life  of  an  infantry  officer  is  five- days,;    counting  from  the time  of his arrival in   the firing  line.    The  figure  is   exaggerated,   of  course;- but there is no doubt that thc  casualties among the infantry officers  are much; greater  than: among aviators; these are. higher than the losses  of thc engineers, and these, again, are  higher    than   those    of the artillery.  But the    casualties     of  the  aviators  themselves  arc,   in   proportion,     not  more than one-third of those of the  infantry.���������Ramoro     dc,.   Macztu,    in  The New Age.

Sir.���������Re   Toronto's -rscoption  of tbe Duke of Devonshire, and  the "breaks" made by The people in "shaking his  liand," calling him "Your Grace," etc.   Let  this be a lesson to us in Victoria  no-} to  be  too  familiar, aud let  us show himjthat we have taken  to heart our church lesson: "To  order myself lowly  and rever-  eetly to all my  betters."   This  irreverence  comes from living  so near a republic, and it is lamentably true, that we do not  so order ourselves as we should.  We met  Roosevelt and shook  hishand, and calledjhim "Teddy,"  tind when our betters come here  wo   forget   to  order  ourselves  "lowly  and   reAorcntly" as   we  should.    It is   ropubliea,n ideas  which we must  avoid, and tho  freedom of licence, call it what  we will.   If we, when Their Excellencies  como   here,  will   remember   our    early    religious  training: "to order myself lowly  and  reverently  to all my betters," and so follow that course  our conduct "will be seemly, and  so in direct contrast to th��������� familiar bearing  of Toronto people;" therefore,  let us  vie with  each    other    in   showing   His  Grace that we know our place,  and also recognize  his  exalted  position.    It  is not sufficient to  say,   His   Grace    lives   in   our  hottse, on our soil,  in our country,  as some do; but  the fact  remains he is put over us as the  head of our people, and it is our  duty to recognize his authority  as Jour governor, even  though  he  is  not  the  people's choice,  but is  only  sent cere  as a. reminder    that   Canada   is   still  linked   tp  England,  a  fact  on  ���������which   we   must   congratulate  ourselves at   this   time,, of all  times. .

This is an  ironmonger's war, and in every  engagement victory has been  with the army having the  greater weight of metal to  throw at thc other fellow. In  six months the United States  should be able to train and  equip 5,000,000 men, for 75 per  cent of her citizens know what  a gun is and how to use it. It  was different with the British.  Possibly half of the civilian  army never handled a gun before enlistment. Still they  have proved themselves thc  equals of any of the trained  soldiers of Europe.  Won't Fight for Canada.
