A printer's  mistake, and an easy one to  make owiug to similarity in the  written or printed appearance  ot the two names. Insetting type  a printer does not deal in words  particularly, but iu groups of  them. He glances at the copy  and then sets'-as much as he can  remember. It may be a ph rase,  a sentence oi- a paragraph, from  one to half a dozen lines, all depending upon the stylo and  clearness of the composition, so  it would be easy to read Brown  for Bowen if one were in a rush.  The following is an extract  from a letter from Bobby Robertson to his mother, which arrived   this  week:   "I   received  ei^hLIe,tters from you, Helen  and Phebe today, and was more  than glad to hear from you.  Yes, I heard about Billie's death  but I thought it best for you to  find out from headquarters,  bam McCurdy, Billie Benzie.  Jack Frame and I were wounded, but we are getting on fine.  l ou were asking about a medal, j  Successful  Smoker Held  in  the  City  Above the Clouds.  A good time was enjoyed on  the hill Saturday night at tho  boarding house by all the male  sex in the way in the way of a  good old-time smoker, which  being iu part the beginning of  the Christmas festivities. The  contributions subscribed for the  occasion a few weeks previously  were equally divided for the  smoker and the children's Christmas tree. Thus a balance of .$65  was kept to stock up the tree  with good things for the children on the hill, so things look  bright up here for. the'young  ������������������* Niekelplalers.'/  The smoker was certainly.a  huge success and "well managed  by the committee 'who handled  the affair. Mr.' J. R. Brown,  who was chairman for the occasion, took his seat promptly  at 8 o'clock and started the ball  rolling by ��������� that old familiar  toast, "Have one on me," which  was immediatelv responded to  with "He's a Jolly Good Fellow," seconded by Mr. William  Greaves, who then introduced  some of "Tuckett's Best," and  everything was shaping itself  into a fine evening".  Vlr. Fred Cadweil started the  vocal part off .with that good  old song, "I'm Longing for that  Dear Old Home Again," followed by several encores.  Mr.   Win.  Kennedy, who   is  certainly the  "Male Molba" of  the hill, rendered several of the f  latest popular songs in a manner long to be remembered.  Mr. T. Barlow's selection.  "Cowboy's Lament," was much'  appreciated.  Mr. Johnny Hancock, who is  always there for the occasion,  introduced some of the good  old comics, which caused roars  of laughter.  Mr. W. Tims rendered that  little ditty, "Little Bit off tho  Top Will Do for Me," which  was joined in by all, followed  by "Beer, Beer, Glorious Beer !"  Mr. Dan McLeod- with "Woe  Deoeh-an-Doris" which brought  roars of laughter, and as an  encore, "A Long Way to Tip-  perary."  The Nickel Plate Quartette,  which is certainly a good one,  rendered several  of tho latest.  Not forgetting Mr. Joe Brown,  who filled -in with a couple of  good old timers. Mr. Fred  Pearcc recited "The Collier  Lad," showing high elocutionary talent.  Mr. Nic Yupinshin, the noted  contortionist, gave an excellent  performance in his lino.  Mr. Ous Malum and Mr. Tipp  indulged in a wrestling match,-  best two out of three, which  was certainly some class, Mr.  Tipp "being given the decision,  this bringing to a" close an evening's entertainment which was  enjoyed by all.  With three cheers for the  ladies, who furnished the eats,  and a vote of thanks to the  committee and chairman, and  to Mr. George Stevens, who presided at the piano, everyone  joined in singing "Auld Lang  Syne," going home with the  feeling of good fellowship which  marked the evenings proceedings.^���������Com.  Letter from R. James.  My Dear Miis. Sproulk��������� j  have been intending to writo to  you for ever so long, but until  now I have not put the inclination into practice.  Needless to say I have been  in some hot corners since 1 last  wrote. I am not going to attempt giving you a description  of "any of them, but I am glad  to say that so far "the devil has  looked after his own" and I  have escaped the love tokens  which Fritzie keeps sending us.  You will have heard that  Bert Schubert had been killed  and also .that Jack Howe bad  got a "blighty."  The old 5-ith went over the  parapet last Saturday morning  and gave Fritz a good dose of  hell before breakfast, and succeeded in pushing him a little  nearer to his beloved "Fader-  land." They went over to a man  and no stragglers.  You will be very pleased to  hear that Alex. Jack distinguished himself in great shape.  He handled his company aftor  all the officers had been put out  of action like a born soldier. I  believe that the last has not  been heard of his work. He deserves any recogninion that the  powers that be may .give .him.  1   am   now              1--1-:  forward to having an early  trip home, for dame rumor has  it that leave is going to start  very soon in the battalion, and  without any exaggeration the  5-ith deserves it, for we have  done some good work since we  crossed tho channel.  I have nothing more of any  iutorest to toll you, so I will  conclude with an apology foi-  my rotten handwriting, but circumstances are such that do  not produce good   penmanship.  Please give my  best regards  to all  Hedley  friends and  ac-..  copt tho same both for yourself  and Mr. Sproule.    As this letter  will probably reach you aiound  the festive  season, J take   this  opportunity   of   wishing   both  Mr.    S.   and   yourself   a   very  pleasant Christmas and a happy  and prosperous New Your.

U.       1131  This letter from Mrs. Noxcl is endorsed by Mr. H. J. MahalTy, druggist, Port Colborne, Out., as being  true and correct. While it reports a  most remarkable cure of epileptic fits  by use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,  it only goes to corroborate similar  cures reported by others.  Mrs. Henrietta M. Noxcl, R. R. No.  1, Humbcrstonc, Out., writes: "I cannot help writing to you, as I want you  to know what a blessing Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food and Kidney-Liver Pills  have been to my boy. He was taken  with very violent fits, would twitch all.  over, his eyes would turn towards his  nose, his jaws set and his lips turn  almost purple. He would clench his  fists tightly, become unconscious and  then go into a long sleep. After several hours lie would wake up sighing  and so weak he could not stand. I  was afraid he would die and took him  to thc doctor, who pronounced his  case epilepsy. As His medicine was  not effective and the fits continued, I  took him to another doctor at Font-  hill, but his medicine seemed to make  him worse.  "As the boy's nerves were in such  a state that he could not sit down or  lie down, and thc fits continued, T  took him to a third doctor, who said  that he would not undertake to cure  epilepsy, as no doctor .could cure it.  That night I went, home very much  discouraged, and when I took my  dose of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food X  gave my boy a dose, and that was  the first night in weeks that he slipt  well. 1 kept on^giving him the Nerve  F'ood three times a day and occasionally a Kidney-Liver pill to keep the  kidneys and bowels active. I can,  with a clear conscience, say that he  has not had even one fit since begin-'  ning.this treatment. I give him no  other medicine. He -looks and feels  well, and as there have, been no* returns of the old trouble for four  mouths, I believe he has been cured.  I can never cease to be grateful to  the manufacturers of these medicines,  for I am sure I would have lost my  boy if it had not been for Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food.  Mn -H. J.

The final  drama is opened and it will hold the  world spellbound through act on act  before the denouement comes near.  As I transmit this at one of thc  . most exciting mom cuts of the whole  war, known events arc big and  strange enough to satisfy any appetite for sensation, if such a thing remains anywhere-in. this solemn time.  But hi addition to the facts the air  is wild with report. Once again we  are told reality in thc Balkans will  beggar the invention of playwrights  and novelists, who seek their themes  in imaginary kings, courts and political conspiracies. '���������  ' The fact above all others is that  Germany has awakened to realities at  last. Rumania's blow- shattered a  fool's paradise.. It is the fight for life  * on thc part of two empires, aud chiefly on thc part of this formidable people which has, no doubt, made every  error into which pride and vanity  could lead a nation, but still cannot  give up the desperate idea that its  vast military system must somehow  ���������prove invincible, no matter what  forces it has challenged.  We Allies, who have believed in  taking a cool measure of the enemy,  arc under no-d-cccption. If we were,  we should be unworthy to win. We  would rather magnify our task than  undcr-estimatc it.  Germany's fight for life must necessarily be a large business. , More  than 18 months ago, when scckingto  arouse my own country to the size  "of her undertaking, I ventured to say,  and to repeat often afterward, that  Germany was no more deceived about  thc issue of thc war than was Britain about thc cost, and that there  would be a fight to stagger humanity before Germany went down.  Since  the spring of  last year  that  The Frenzy of Despair  Teutons    Wilf   Not   Accept    Defeat  Without '.Expending    All  Their Fury  The prospect of falling from the  clouds, whence all/the kingdoms of  the earth lay at thc nation's feet, into  a vast camp of internment, is enough  to fire the most sluggish citizen. It  will nerve' the arm, of Germany, who  iu her own eyes is thc super-nation;  the chosen people of the "good old  God"; nay, the spirit that brooding  over the face of the world would  have created it anew. German}' is  force incarnated in a race, and therefore force is right, and Germany  above all peoples. That creed is at  once a political tenet and a religious  faith. It is not "a direct emanation  from Prussian militarism, it is a fruit  of the union of Prussian- militarism  with the latter-day German philosophy and pedagogy. Schoolmasters  inculcate it. Clergymen of all faiths  preach it, historians study the annals  of mankind in the light of it. University professors expound it. Statesmen take il as the rule of their policy  and the kaiser looks upon it as the  object of his mission. Iu a word, it is  thc cement of German unity, the secret of German expansion, the mainspring of German enterprise and organization. Destroy 1 hat belief, blast  that hope, thrust that goal beyond  the reach of the Teuton, and-the vast  structure raised by thc combined efforts of generations will collapse.  Riches, case, domination, will be  snatched from thc grasp that was  closing on them. And that is thc  lasKT which the Allies will have set-  themselves when they reject ��������� thc  coming peace proposals.

She is absolutely  bound to deny that -she.is going to  be beaten until she is beaten. But  by her efforts and-'those of her op-  ipoficnts humanity has already been  considerably staggered and is quite  certain to be staggered more and  ��������� still-more by the end of this year's  campaign and the; crisis of the next.'  One extraordinarily moral admission, however, has been alrea'dy  wrung from the enemy. Hindenburg's  appointment meant sev.efal things,  but, was in the first case an'.opciv.proclamation; that the war of conquest  has become the fight for life. All the  .-elaborate calculations on which Germany, of the Hohenzollerns, was self-  lured into the struggle have broken  down and the men who made them  are "disappearing.  -The Hohcnzolleriis think of their  house first. That has always been  their tradition. Whatever the kaiser's  belated step may- do for his country,  it is a shrewd stroke in -the interests  of the dynasty. The emperor, who  got rid of Bismarck, would never until now permit any subject to overshadow himself. Why docs he seem  at the eleventh hour to acquire more  humility? The subject now placed at  the head of affairs*as the military  - dictator and real national leader of  Germany is summoned to a thankless  task.; If he succeeds lustre will be reflected on the dynasty itself, as in the  old way, wlicn Bismarck, and Moltke  ���������\ycre the great  managing agents ' of  the crown".  But if Hindenburg fails, the whole  weight of thc blame is less likely to  fall on William If. No one who is at  all acquainted with the importance of  dynastic politics in Berlin and Vienna  will think this suggestion far fetched.  Apart from all this, the kaiser has  every reason for self-distrust, and  whatever else may be said about Hindenburg, he knows his mind.  There has been, indeed, a scries of  ghastly blunders, showing what I  have previously described as the blind  side of German efficiency. Bismarck  thought that the kaiser's temperament  would be his doom and his country's  ���������that it would-be imbecile and fatal  policy to challenge Britain and Russia  together as  well  as   France.  Germany   threw   away   thc   last   of  all    their    strength    and  against  the entente with   the fury of  despair.���������London   Daily  Telegraph.  Russia's Arctic Port  New Port, of Murman Gives  Russia  a Great Advantage  One of the great difficulties of they)  Allies in the past has been to secure  for Russia ample supplies of munitions. Only two ports were available for the importation of supplies.  One of these, Archangel, is not-only  remote from the battlefront, but in',  addition is closed by-ice during the  winter. -The other, Vladivostok,  while usually ice-free, is a long distance from the front. * The activity  on the eastern front, coupled with  reports of the presence of German  submarines iu the Arctic region,  shows that the enemy is alive to the  tremendous advantages that Russia's  new open port confers on Brusiioff's  advancing armies.  Russia now possesses in the port of  Murman, on thc Arctic Ocean, an ice-  free harbor between the White Sea  and the North "Cape which willsolve  her most formidable problem: the  equipment of her new arrhies and ..the  continual flow of supplies from foreign workshops. Owing to the moderating influence of thc Gulf Stream,  which is not felt at Archangel, tho  .port of Murman, situated on the northern coast of the Kola Peninsula,1 is  never closed by ice. AVooden quays  to accommodate three large steamers have been erected, and the well-  sheltered harbor affords anchorage  for forty large vessels. The railway  linking Murman to Petrograd is nine  hundred miles long, as compared  with a haulage of six thousand miles  on the Trans-Siberian Railway con-'  necting Petrograd and Vladivostok.  The building of the Murman railway  has been one of the notable achievements of the war. Thc.difficulties encountered were very great. Much of  the region through which the railway  runs is practically uninhabited. There  were no roads for the conveyance of  materials and workmen, and in some  places thc survey led through heavy  granite deposits and primeval forests. Great tracts of bog also added  to the problems of construction.  Over hundreds of miles thc track is  laid on piles. Already thc line is virtually completed  fd'r  thc  conveyance  Whimsical    Stories    Regarding  Celebrated Russian General  An achievement so brilliant as that  of General Brusiloff, like a sudden  splendor of dawn from the midst of  darkness, ^inevitably .arouses an eager  desire _ to know something of him;  and, in thc absence of knowledge,  gives birth to all kinds of fancies and  imaginings. One of the best newspapers'In New York printed-a clay  or two after the beginning of,his  great offensive, a charming and whimsical article, alleging that about the  unknown''personality of the Russian  General were already gathering all  the stories of military prowess that  had served for Alexander, for Caesar,  for Napoleon; he was fast becoming  a Solar Myth.  And we have had since then a curiously detailed stoor that Brusiloff is  only a nom de guerre; Ihafllie victor  on the eastern battle line is really the  ill-starred Sir Hector Macdonald rc-  divivus, come back to repeat the  triumph of-Oriidurman. And, in passing, one may note that this legend of  a miraculous return wreathes itself  about cveor dominant personality, not  only Jhc spiritual heroes like Guat-  ama and Zoroaster, but the men cf  war, like Friedrich Barbarossa, asleep  in thc KyfFhauseivShivaji of the Mah-  ratta hills, and now, for tlie second  time, about the fine soldier who forfeited the renown won in the Sudan.  So insistent' js the sense of immortality aroused by genius and power.  On one of the country roads just  outside Lublin, a little chap, a genuine little Pole, came trotting along  thc road on an old nag. Thc boy's  knees were pulled up almost to his  chin. General Brusiloff, standing in  the middle'of the road, cried "Halt!"  as though . the boy had been a squadron of dragoons. The terrified youngster pulled up short! Then the corns  commander stepped to the side of the  old horse and lengthened first one  stirrup-leather and then thc other,  and put the boy's feet back into thc  stirrups. Then, starting him once  more on his way, he commented  whimsically.: "They would quote that  as an instance oLthe Russian oppression of the Poles!" It -was, bv the  way, one of his griefs that all his efforts had won almost no cordial response from the Poles of Lublin; they  rcmnined icily aloof,- in spite of '  kindliest overtures. ��������� Charles  ston, .in The Atlantic.

Some months later, in January,  1915, our hospital was taken by thc  Germans, members of the staff being  brutally dismissed.  "So the'men were no niorc respected than our buildings, as is further  shown by thc story of what happened  to my colleagues. Professor Leon  ohn- | Fredericq, the world-known physiologist, a brother of the Ghent-historian.

Incredible  though it sounds, General Kolcwe,  the German Commander of Liege at  that time, admitted that Fredericq  was not responsible in any way for  his son's evasion.

The area of each province is roughly  250,000 square miles.

The teachers���������for the most part girls  ���������- are given a month's training in  some institution, and are then gradu- -  atcd as instructors of the subject.  The course usually covers botany,  entomology, gardening, animal husbandry, field husbandry and nature  study. A nicely engraved certificate  is given at the end of the course and  the teacher goes home filled with die  happy dignity of having broadened  her sphere of work.  These teachers cannot teach agriculture, cannot even' make a bluff  at it. The farmer knows this. What  would happen if he went to ask the  local school teacher who instructs  his children in "agriculture" for information regarding crop rotation  for a certain piece' of land on. his  farm? She would probably turn to  her note book and read him something taken down from a: professor's  lecture. He would grin if he were  good natured, if not he would say  something.  Can you think of another subject  on the curriculum of any institution  in which you would care to have your  child instructed by a teacher of similar  training?    I  think  not.  Tn Canada wc have not made agriculture a high school subject. We  attempt to teach the very elements  of the science, that is all. Should  the boy want further instruction he  must go to college. All farmers'  sons cannot do this. Thc consequence is that serious agricultural  education^ has not yet touched the  masses of the farming communities,  except through agricultural journal-  ! ism and societies formed among the  ' farmers themselves.  In the United States more is being- done. In the Duluth, Minn., high  school practical work of a decidedly  "secondary" nature has been underr  taken.; In 1914 the school board voted $150 for thc purchase of a creamery outfit such as could be recommended for a farmer with ten cows.  The. equipment, all hand-power models, consists of cream separator,  combined; churn and butter worker,  butter'; printer; ice box, Babcock  tester, acidity test outfit, salting out-*  fit, moisture test scale, butter print  scale, cream scale, cream cans and  minor utensils.  The agricultural -department, then  | in its second year only,** was already  'one of the most active divisions of  Central High school,.. and the new  equipment was received with such  interest and enthusiasm that in the  1914-1915 school year the embryo  farmers made a total of 2,890 pounds  of the best creamery butter in 170  churnings. '''**���������  The Student Creamery Company  of the high school is an organization  among the boys of the agricultural  department similar on a -small scale  to the most approved type of farmers' co-operative creameries, for the .  purpose of obtaining both the manufacturing and the business experience of creamery practice. The student members produce thc cream  and milk by purchase, and sell to  their creamery, profits from which  they share in proportion to their respective patronage.  Agriculture advanced ������������������- enough to  be of practical v benefit, cannot be  taught apart from the -farm. Why  should there not be a school farm?  Farming/could then be studied, as a  science, as an art and as a business.  The cost would not be great, for  farming i.s a profitable employment  and the school farm must not only  run itself but must also pay dividends on money invested.  Of course there would be many  details to arrange, much prejudice  to overcome, in fact much hard  work, for thc agricultural educationalist who would undertake thc work.  Elementary education should be  supplemented by secondary education.. The high school graduate ol  the future, if he is to spend his life  on the farm, should be ������.blc, to turn  to account knowledge obtained at  [school. This cannot "be done as our  courses of study now exist. Theory  should give place to practice.  came second among the provinces  for actual production���������the total production being 4,144,377 tons, valued  at the mine head at $9,462,836. This  was considerably more than one-  third the combined production of thc  remaining eight provinces of Canada.  Why a larger tonnage i.s not produced is because of labor scarcity  and of comparative smallness of  markets.

Home Grown Seed  A Brave Deed  Encouragement   Given   for   the  Production of Seed in Canada  In Biiiir.h Columbia a good start  has been made towards the establishment of a seed-growing industry. Until life outbreak of war the necessity  had inn faced Canada of obtaining  her supply of vegetable seeds, very  .little in the way of seed production j  had been attempted in this province.  Some of the growers had bought seed  in thc United States, but most of  .them had depended on Canadian  houses, which were huge importers.  It was cheaper to buy seed than to  grow it.  Last year, in an experimental way,  vegetable seeds were grown iii.certain localities in British Columbia.  This year the production of seeds  will attain commercial ��������� proportions.  In thc future seed probably will be  grown in large quantities. The aim  of the Dominion department of agriculture, which is fostering the movement, is to rendc-r Canada independent of any foreign country for her  supply of vegetable seeds.  To encourage in a practical way  seed growing, Hon. Martin.Burrell,  Minister of Agriculture, arranged for  subventions to growers. This summer an expert of the seed branch, Mr.  J., R. Fryer, has been interesting farmers in seed-growing possibilities  and acquainting them with the terms  of the subventions. The seed-growing experimennts in the Okanagan  and Fraser Valleys last year were  very successful. '"  For the production of seed measuring up to the standard set, tlie Dominion Government will pay bonuses  as-follows:' Mangels, 3 cents " per  pound; turnips, 4 cents; carrots, 7J  cents;    beets,    10    cents; parsnips,   7  Courage   and   Coolness   Win   Out   in  Danger  The persistent eagerness of the  plain private soldier at the front to  leave no comrade in distress is one  of the s.plendid trails in the character of the men fighting on the  Somme. An instance of this is afforded in the coolness and courage  with which Private Vcale, a Devonshire lad, rescued an officer and won  his,. V.C; .'"'.���������  Hearing that a wounded officer  was lying out in. the front, about fifty  yards from the enemy trench,- Vcale  volunteered to go out and bring him  in, if possible. His offer accepted,  Vcale, single-handed, crawled along  a shell-swept piece of ground till he  found his man, although his wounds  were so. serious., that' he could not  take him, if he had the strength, all  the way back to the trench. Vcale,  laying the poor officer down in;a  shell-hole, crawled back and got two  volunteers to'help him bring in the  officer:  By this time the movements of our  men were discerned by the enemy,  who mercilessly waited till one of  the volunteers ��������� had the officer on his  back. Then thc Huns fired, killing  one of the rescuers.  Vcale saw that it would be useless  to proceed farther, so he again hied  back to the trench, taking big risks.  He asked for a Lewis gun, and, waiting till it was dusk, returned to his  self-appointed commission, covering  his comrades by the gun. They succeeded on this occasion, although  when the officer and Vcale reached  the trench they fell into unconscio.tis-  ness. Vcale was ordered to the base  for rest, which on reaching he begged to be allowed to go back to his  work, remarking to    the    doctor, "I  Minors Capable of  Being Enlisted  Quebec Chief Justice Rules They Are  Responsible   for  Contract  That "a minor who during war enters the King's service and voluntarily enlists for the; defence of thc flag,  the peace of the country and tl; ��������� ������������������,W,���������N,���������  triumph of a just cause/makes a con- j the^'troops  tract which does not come within the'  ordinary prescriptions of the civil  code and that such enlistment is valid  to all legal intents and purposes," was  the ruling of Sir Francis Lemieux,  chief justice of the superior court of  the Province of Quebec, in the case  of Alfred Founder, who sought to  have his son discharged from serving  as a private: in the 171st battalion of  the Canadian expeditionary forces because he was a minor and had enlisted without his father's consent.-  Luxury in India  A   Golden    Throne    Flashing   With  Diamonds  A Lancashire soldier, a member of  thc first British regiment to enter  Mysore since it became an independent State, describes the scene cf  Oriental luxury and refinement that  attended : the reception   accorded to  Problems of the Breeder  Inadequate.

The terms of the bonuses are-.such  as "to practically guarantee the production of first-class seed. The gardener or farmer intending to profit  by the bonus must notify the Government. Two ' inspections will be J  made, one of the crop to determine  whether it is true to type, and the  second of the seed, to determine; the  percentage germinating. . The latter  test will be made in a Government  seed laboratory, and upon its satisfactory completion a certificate regarding the quality will be issued to  the farmer. . The certificate is expected to assist the grower in selling  his crop.  ..It is understood also that an official will be appointed in thc province  to assist farmers in making contracts  with seed houses, and to help them  with advice as to varieties, etc.  Up to thc present, thc supplies of  Canadian seedsmen have not run  short, despite the curtailment of imports, owing to the large supplies on  hand at the commencement of the  war. It is hoped that the production  of seed in Canada .will'be so extensive that there will be no shortage  when foreign  supplies give out.  Encouragement of seed production  through subventions will likely continue for^several years, or until the  industry is firmly established, it is  understood. One very important  good to be expected of them is a general improvement in the country's  supply. An opportunity in Canada'to  buy seed tested and certified by Government experts certainly' ought to  be prized.���������J T. B., in Montreal Fain  ily Herald.  The Value of Sleep  Making the Best of It  Germany   Has   Invented   Substitutes  for  Sundry Requisites  A large department store in Berlin  comes out with this startling announcement: "True Economy is to  use the disused. If unable to buy a  new hat this season, try our secondhand helmets, replenished from the  front." The grucsomencss of the advertisement aroused the indignation  of an old soldier acting as policeman,  and he entered thc store and demanded that the offensive placard should  be withdrawn. Thc manager, on being appealed to, very courteously  showed him a document signed by  the Commandant of the City, giving  the store permission, under the Ration Act, to utilize old helmets. Thc  crestfallen soldier returned to his  beat, muttering, "This cotmtrv is losing too much.

Littrc, the great French philologist, who was nearly twent}** years  compiling and printing his dictionary,  never stopped work before 3 o'clock  in the morning and was at work again  by 8 o'clock in thc forenoon. He  was past 80 years old when he died.  - During the siege of Gibraltar, Sir  George A. Elliott, afterwards Lord  Heathfield, is said never to have slept  more than four hours a day for four  years; yet he lived to attain the age  of 84.  Other strenuous workers have limited themselves to very. restricted  hours of sleeping. Napoleon is said  to, have managed his greatest campaign on an allowance of four or five  hours a night. Brunei, the world's  greatest engineer, is credited with  working twenty hours daily and never  seeming tired or out of spirits.  It is well known that to deprive a*  man utterly of sleep is to doom him  to the most horrible of deaths. Nothing is bo depressing as the want of  sleep, aud nothing so invigorates the.  body and mind as its restoration.  There is no doubt that the quantity  of,sleep necessary for a man can be  determined by habit, bu.t no hard  and fa:.t-rule can or ought to regulate  the hours so spent.  Climate has a great influence in the  matter. In some parts of the world  it is possible for men to do hard  work continuously with short sleeping   spells.  , Any breeder of live stock,;whether  interested in horses," cattle, sheep or  swine, continually -meets with obstacles, which prevent him from making his breeding operations as successful as he would like them to-be.  The selection of a suitable bree.d, the  purchasing of individual animals to  form the nucleus of "a herd, flock or  stud, the application of the principal  laws of heredity and breeding as well  as the prevention of contagious diseases, insofar as it is now possible,  will be subjects for discussion at' the  Saskatchewan Live Stock Convention  in Saskatoon next January. Wc want  to hear of actual experiences and  troubles encountered by stock-breeders and how they have been' overcome, so that others may profit  thereby and avoid the same mistakes. '-'.������������������.-  The3 total surveyed-land    area    of  Saskatchewan'   comprises    76,752,841  acres,    and  nqw    supports'    approximately 667,000 horses, 930,000    head  of cattle, 200,000    sheep  and 330,000  swine, which means that there is:  One horse to every 115 acres;  One   head   of  cattle   to   every 82.5  'acres; ��������� :'  One sheep to every 383 acres; and  One swine to every 233 acres; or,  if all -the live stock "was evenly' distributed throughout the province,  each quarter-section of 160 acres  would carry the following:  1.4 horses,' 1.9 cattle, .4 sheep and .7  swine. No more glaring proof of the  inadequate numbers of stock on our  Saskatchewan farms could be given I  than the above figures; Any attempt  even to show that many more times  this number can be grown would be  disparaging thc productive ���������capacity  of our farms and ranches.  'At a municipal boundary," the soi-  dicr writes;' "we were met by the  three bands of his Highness, and wc  passed under a triumphal arch, with  the bands playing 'The British Grenadiers,' and through streets gay with  bunting and amid shouts of welcome.  We were conducted through ihe  beautiful Curzon Park on to the  ground immediately facing Government House. In marquees on each  side of the drive a banquet fit for a  king was spread.  ' "At. 6 p.m. His Highness, escorted  by a wonderfully picturesque and soldierly .mounted escort in attractive  uniforms of yellow and black, rode  up and* received a Royal salute from  the; British troops who were reviewed.

How a "Caterpillar"  Man Looks in War Suit  Tank  Operator Was Mistaken for a  German    and    Narrowly  Avoided Trouble  A Canadian sergeant-major states  that near the fifth German line the  now famous "lank," of thc "Land  Navy," got stuck up momentarily. "I  had to laugh," he said, "for there  were Germans clambering upon its  back and trying to find the doors.  Then suddenly it began to move  again with the Germans sitting '  astride. One by one they tumbled off  ���������and the 'elephant' just went on!"  "One of thc crew' of a 'caterpillar'  had a narrow escape,' said another  Londoner. "Prisoners were coming  forward in large batches and one of  the men from inside' hopped out to  tell the infantry as they approached.  He was wearing what looked like a'  German helmet, blue dungarees, and  a khaki tunic. I saw him sloop down  to a wounded man, put his revolver  oir the ground beside him, and begin  to bandage the wounded fellow's  head.  "A man in my platoon picked up  the revolver and another pointed his  rifle at him. 'What's the game?' said  the 'caterpillar's' man. He was such  a queer mixture that our "fellows  wouldn't believe his yarn till he  fetched out his paybook. Then he got  his  revolver back."

The plan is to keep the boys on the  farms until 21 years of age. They  will be taught cattle raising, breeding  of silk worms, rotation of crops,  treatment of the soil, and use of modern, agricultural machinery of the  Canadian type.  After thc age of 21, it is planned  to set up tlu boys as independent  farmers by thc sale of lands and  equipm-fiit to them on favorable  terms.  We, have kept a very accurate record in two parallel columns of our,  losses and of the German reports of.  those same losses. To illustrate the  point, the other day we lost at Sois-  sons, as the result of an unimportant  engagement, some sixteen or eighteen  men and one or two guns, and north  of Soissons a few prisoners were taken and a few metres of trench. The  Germans in their official communique  reported this-.in the minutest detail  and with great precision, their official  published record , agreeing exactly  with ours, as it always does on minor  details and engagements. But on that  same day they reported 1,000 prisoners   taken , near  Verdun.  What actually happened at Verdun  was that we threw out as a sort of  observation post a salient forming an  angle in ^advance of thc main" line,  consisting of 600 men and a few  guns, with the order that this salient  should retire to the main line as soon  as it was hard pressed. The men  soon were hard pressed and did retire, losing 26 men and three guns.  Thc German report of this was that  they had beaten back the French line  at this point and taken 1,000 prisoners.  Thc result of these exaggerations  since the beginning of the war shows  a grand total of men taken and killed amounting to more than the number of men that France has equipped.  1 liken this sort of thing to a panorama where there arc a few sticks,  stones, dried leaves and bits of grass  in thc foreground which are real, but  the main scene, which is calculated  to deceive, is unreal, a pure fake.  This has been Germany's policy  since thc beginning, and some day  thc German people will realize how  they have been fooled.���������The Atlantic.  Beneficial   Effect   of   Military   Discipline on Incorrigibles  That incorrigibility is often due  only to unsuitable environment and,  above all, to lack of proper discipline  under conditions that require the exercise of all* the available energy, is  one of the great lessons of the present war. This observation has, of  course, been previously made in times  of war, but never to such an extent  as in the present, and the New York  Herald seems to take a new hope in  human nature from the fact that so  much.information is effected:-  "One of the most interesting observations made on both sides during  the war has been that a number of  the young men who. prove difficult  problems for law-abiding . communities make excellent soldiers. : -Even  certain types of psychopaths_��������� that  is, .sufferers from some- degree of  mental disequilibration���������have, under  military _ discipline developed- into  very valuable assets instead of'disturbing 'factors for. their governments.  "The adventurer, the youthful  transgressor, theboy who.has fought  school discipline, the young man who  has come into conflict with the police and who has been in constant  opposition with law and order,.often  finds himself, according to a correspondent of the Journal of the American Medical Association, entirely reliable and at peace with the law and  himself when he sees service at thc.  front.

Its inventor calls it the  "Hydroski-Risso," which had better  be shortened for the sake of convenience into the simpler "Hydroskis."  Tt weighs only 17 pounds and will  support a weight of 440 pounds. It  is essentially a military device, and a  soldier thus equipped can walk over  a river at a speed of seven miles an  hour, and while so engaged can fire  his rifle with accuracy as the apparatus works, it is said, with great  smoothness of motion.  Your Dog Will Like This  A dog may be lied up, yet allowed  to have a good deal of exercise at  the same time, in this way:  Put a ring at the end of his chain,  and through the ring pass a length  of strong, smooth wire, pegging the  two ends of wire to thc ground, so  that thc wire is fairly taut.  Then the dog, though he' cannot  roam at large, may at least run up  and down the length of thc wire.  Where he has a kennel, the wire,  of course, passes close to thc entrance, so that he may turn himself  about within.  A dog with a run of this sort is far  happier than when chained up to his  kennel, and may enjoy a fair amount  of exercise although on a short  chain.  At the same time he is given extra  scope for guarding poultry or anything else.  Western Canada Leads the World as  a Wheat Producer  That Western Canada is "indeed  "Mistress of Wheat" to the extent  that its 1915 crop exceeded, acre for  acre, the production of any country  on this continent is a" striking fact  proved   by   the   following  figures:  Last year, the Dominion of Canada  produced 376,000,000 bushels of wheat,  which represented an average yield  of 29 bushels lo the acre. The United Slates produced 1,011,505,000 bushels, a yield of 17 bushels per acre.  The only serious competitors in  wheat production in South America  were ' Argentine, with ' 178,221,000  bushels, or less than 12 bushels per  acre, and Chile, with 19,000,000 bush-,  els, or 13 bushels pcr acre.  The three Western CanaJian prai-J'  rie provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta produced between  them 342,000,000 bushels out of ihe  total Canadian 376,000,000 bushels. It  will be seen, therefore, that, outside  of the United States, Western "Canada produced considerably more than  the "combined production of North  and South America. Canada is, of  course, a tfewly settled country, and  the fact that the crop of the United  States was practically three times as  much   is  no  discouragement. The  United States has at present _ more  than twelve times the population of  Canada in approximately the same  area.  To illustrate further the greater  productiveness of Western Canadian-  land, wc submit the following figures,'  showing  the  1915  yields  per  acre  in '  the three, provinces of-Western Canada "and. in   the  states   which  in  that-  year' produced   the  greatest  quantity  of wheat.

CHURCH UNION  IN  CANADA  A   Clear-Cut   Statement from  the  Union    Committee    of _Pres-  byterjan General Assembly  Thc  following  statement has been  5sucd by thc Church Union Commit-  |jcc- of thc General Assembly:���������  The . General Assembly of our  Khurch, at its meeting in Winnipeg  Jin -June last, resolved to unite with  Ijhc. Methodist Church and the Con-  Ircgational Churches in Canada in  Terms of the resolution hereto appended, and appointcd'a committee ' to  ftarry put this policy.  Although the .actual consummation  uf 'the Union cannot be effected for  Ifcveral years, the decision of the As-  1-mbly was so momentous that this  Rimmittee, at its first meeting on  fcily 26th, considered it important  hat  the .whole" membership  ,        .    .. .     of    the  tihurch: -should be fully informed as:, solution of the Assembly that "provi  what is involved in il.  iThe committee therefore has decid-  i'l to  lay before all the sessions the  Resolution of   the   General Assembly,  Ijid  to* point  out   its  important   .eat-  res,; at the'same time urging-upon  essions, in virtue of their position of  ;sporisibility, to explain to the mem-  jtrs and adherents of the congregation the-meaning of thc action of the  meral  Assembly,    and-thus'to  remove    any possible misapprehensions  la   to   the -Basis   of Union, 'or   as   to  :'hat the Assembly actually did.  -1. The   action   of  the   General   As-  limbly is the action of the Supreme  "ourt   of  the   Church.     Our  Church,  li common with other Churches, as a  fart-of the living Body of Christ, un-  |cr His Headship and directed by I-lis  spirit,' is free -to modify its doctrines,  fovcrninent     and   worship    as   fuller  fglit may come, in order to the more  {ffective  fulfilment  of its  mission   in  le .world.  2. That, owing to the war, no further action to consummate the Union  is to be taken by the Assembly until  a full year after the close of the  War; that,is, at the earliest, not before June,  1918.  3. That, in the meantime, , the  Church Union Committee, appointed  in terms of the Assembly's resolution  on Union, is to confer with similar  committees from the other churches  with the object of ascertaining what  legislation it may be necessary to secure from thc Dominion Parliament  and the Provincial Legislatures. This  committee cannot report, at the earliest,  before June,  1918.  When thc committee shall have reported, the Assembly, provided the  other Churches have also given authorization to their committees to proceed, will authorize its committee to  secure, ,in conjunction with the similar committees of the other churches,  enabling Acts from the Dominion  Parliament and the several -Legislatures. The Union, itself, therefore,  cannot, 'at the earliest, be "consummated before 1919.  It is expressly provided in the re-  sion be made in this' legislation - to  conserve the property rights of all  congregations that may determine by  a majority vote of the communicants  not to enter the United Church."  4. That special oversight will be  given to the small congregations * of  the new and rapidly growing sections of the Dominion. Where Union  congregations are created they will  be under the oversight of joint committees; in other cases the fullest.cooperation will be practised, with a  view to the coming Union. i  - There will also be' the fullest, cooperation -in the work of the various  boards and committees of the several  churches.  ' At such a time as this in our new  land, this movement is full of the  highest promise. It was initiated in  response to religious conviction, and  as thc negotiations proceeded this  deepened.        The  t conviction      has  By law and .practice the Presbyter-; churches have been led by a way-that  f.n Church in Canada is governed by  Sessions, Presbyteries    and    General  Lssemblics;   .and  the Church speaks  through these courts.   In order, how-  rver,  that no  hasty or  ill-considered  [ction .may   be  taken,  it  is  provided  j>y  the  "Barrier  Act"' that  any   proposed  change  in  thc  Constitution  of  Ihe -Church must be submitted by the  Jicneral  Assembly   to  the  Pr-esbytcr-  i;s.;  and   unless   a   majority  of   these  frououncc  in   favor  of  the  proposed  hange,   it cannot   be "enacted by Ihe  [icncral  Assembly.

T'hc, question "of Union was  twice submitted to the people for  their opinion, and abundant opportunity afforded for the consideration  [and amendment of a proposed basis  of Union. The basis as- finally ani-  ended was adopted by the General  Assembly of 1915, and thc question of  Union on this basis was submitted to  the sessions, communicants and adherents of the Church, and the vote  resulted in a substantial majority for  Union.  After the vote of the people had  been officially announced, the proposal was considered by Presbyteries in  conformity with the Barrier Act, and  52 out of a. total of 76 Presbyteries  definitely reported to the General Assembly in favor of Union.  After the fullest consideration and  debate, thc Assembly, by the very  large majority of 406 to 90, gave effect to the will of the Church in the  resolution hereto appended:  1. That the Presbyterian Church in  Canada is, by thc constitutional act  of its courts and carrying out the will  of its people, 'committed to' organic  Union with the Methodist Church  and thc Congregational Churches of  Canada.  they knew not. The Union will give  wider expressions than hitherto to organic Christian fellowship; it will remove many local rivalries, will, set  free many men ' to wotk in rapidly  growing or otherwise necessitous  communities, will in many directions  economise and conserve our common  resources, and will greatly aid in the  work among our non-English-speaking populations.  The..Union will not sever us from  thc traditions of our past; for our  Church will carry into the "United  Church of Canada" all-that is essential, and will continue its work more  effectively because of this Union with  others, who. will bring into the United  -Church their distinctive experience  in'religious thought and service.  We are confident, moreover, that  the parent churches in Britain .will  rejoice that conditions * in' this hew  land make.possible"'this unique expression' of practical Christian unity.  ' It is our hope, also, that this Union  is only. the forerunner. of larger  Unions yet to come within the Christian Church.  '"��������� In conclusion, the committee would  urge upon any -who may not yet be  satisfied with the decision of the General Assembly, to consider the question in all* its bearings, calmly, and  with the greatest care, .and , not to  commit themselves'..in opposition to  the will of the Assembly; being confident that the mature judgment of  the membership as a whole will accept the action of the Assembly, as  being in the highest.interests of,the  Kingdom'of God. ���������-���������������������������������������������'  R.

That in accordance with its recommendation this General Assembly  of the Presbyterian. Church in Canada dp now resolve to unite with the  Methodist Church of Canada and the  Congregational Churches of Canada  to constitute "The United Church of  Canada," on the basis of Union approved.by the General Assembly of  1915 and by the majority of Presbyteries since consulted under the Barr  rier Act.  3. That this decision be formally  announced to - the . Methodist- Church  of Canada and the Congregational  Churches of  Canada.  4. That a committee be appointed  to carry out the policy of the Assembly and to act in co-operation with  committees "of the Methodist and  Congregational Churches of Canada  in obtaining the necessary legal advice and in taking such steps as may  be deemed proper to prepare for making application to the Dominion and  Provincial Legislatures for such legislation as may be necessary to s*. -  cure the conveyance of property to  the United Church. That this committee report to the .'-first .Assembly  following the end of the first year  after the close of the war, and that,  with the consent and' authority of  that Assembly, application be made  for the legislation proposed at the  following session of the Dominion  Parliament and the Provincial Legislatures.  5. That provision be made in this  legislation to conserve thc property  rights of all congregations that may  determine by a majority vote of communicants not to enter thc United  Church.  6. That thc union be consummated  as soon after the securing of legislation as the regular" steps can be taken. ,  7. That in  thc    meantime Prcsby-  eries be instructed to move along the  lines authorized by the General Assembly in Edmonton in 1912 either by  local unions or by withdrawal of one  church or the other where serious  overlapping is taking place to the detriment of religion.  8. That to the better furtherance of  this end in each of the thirty-seven  Presbyteries of Western Canada, including the four Presbyteries of New  Ontario, a committee of three (one of  whom shall be the Superintendent of  the bounds) be appointed to meet a  like number of the Methodist Church  of Canada and one from thc Congregational Church of Canada, where  missions of that Church are found,  and one from the Union Churches,  where there are such within the  bounds, to advance local union or cooperation of congregations or mission stations, such joint committee  be authorized: -' ���������  (a) To see that Union Churches  are regularly visited."  (b) To select- from the literature  of the "churches what may be suitable  for .their use and to urge its purchase.

(d) To urge these Union Churches  to take up collections for the various  schemes of the churches, to be divided proportionately between the  churches represented.  9. That the General Assembly continue, to any minister in good standing in this Church who may accept  the pastorate ofa Union or Co-operative Church the rights "that he now  enjoys in this Church, and that the  Conference of the Methodist Church  and the Congregational Union be  asked to do the same.

":  Seed for 1917  Keeping Part of the Farm Free From  Weeds, In Order to Grow Seed  Between 80 and 90 pcr cent, of thc  seed to be used next year will be  grown on the farm on which it will  be used for seed. Most of our wheat  in Western Canada is now of two  varieties, Marquis and Red Fife, and  both of superior and about equal  quality. It will be possible, if any  farmer so wishes, to take the seed  from a definite area on the summer-  fallow or breaking or any clean piece  of land. It is also possible to mark  out a definite area and by hand pulling .keep this area free from weeds  or grains and other varieties of wheat  such as bearded wheats. In fact,  there is absolutely no reason why,  when a farmer is growing his own  seed, he should not grow this on a  definite area each year, an area which  he knows he can keep free from foreign seeds of all kinds. It is an established fact that grain of a pure  variety will give-a higher yield than  grain of mixed varieties. For tin's  reason the maintaining of pure varieties of grain on the farm by such  methods as suggested is profitable  work. We make this suggestion at  this time because it is possible to  still definitely lay out the seed field  on thc summerfallow and keep this  field free from seeds and foreign  grains.���������Farmers' Advoc'ate.  Boys Need More Food  Than Farmers  Soldiers for the Land  Farmer-Soldier's  Story of the Cana  dian   West  JH������  Steel in Germany       i  Apparently   No Great   Shortage   of  Iron and Steel in Enemy  Countries  Those who put too much dependence on the recent statement by a  German General that there is a  shortage in iron and steel in  enemy  Ptc. John Reid, of the 128th Battalion (Saskatchewan) Canadian Infantry, is a soldier who looks ahead.  During a brief leave of absence from  the front he visited his native home  in the Old Country and gave it as his  firm belief that tens of thousands of  men would, when the war is over,  seek homes i.i Canada. "Each Canadian," he says, "in Flanders is a recruiting agent for the Dominion.  Englishmen who earned a living in  stores, factories, mills, shipyards,  and even offices will not settle down  any more to their old jobs. They  have found new health and a new  idea of life in Flanders and France,  and, as there is no land in Great  Britain to be got unless you possess  the credit of the big farmer, where  can they turn to except to the Overseas of the Dominions? Take my  case. In* 1911 I gave up tanning in  the Old Country to try my luck in  Canada. I located in the West, fyled  on a homestead, and went through  digging. I had to build my own  shack���������which a soldier will do as a  bit of fun���������dug my own well, cleared  a bit of land, and made good. I own  now 320 acres, have cattle, horses,  farm machinery, and with the good  money for grain that I got I am all  right, and on m-y own. These words,  "my own," are music to a Britisher's  ears, and I expect, if spared to get  through thc war, tens of thousands  of fellows like me over in-the West.  But the West will have to behave a  trifle better to them than some of the  land sharks did to other greenhorns,  because the war, with its good points,  has made strong men who will stand  no monkeying by sharpers and  crooks."  Lack   of Appreciation    of   Ravenous  Appetites  Results in  Under-  Nutrition  The ravenous appetites of healthy,  growing boys are notorious. A recent  investigation of the food eaten by  300 boys in one of the largest private  boarding schools of America, published in the Journal of the American  Medical Association, shows that the  food was of the best quality, including  193 varieties;'it cost an average of 20  cents a meal per boy, or 13.8 cents  per thousand calories.  Each boy consumed 4,350 calories a  day at table, but bought an average  of 650 additional calories at a neighboring store, the principal item in  this  being chocolate.  Thus each boy averaged 5,000 calorics a day, or half as much again as  a farmer at work is believed to require. The total fuel intake was  three times that of the basal level of  1,700 to 1,800 calories, which is the  heat production of boys from 13 to  16 years- of age when resting or  asleep.  Dr.-Graham Lusk,remarks that lack  of appreciation of the ravenous appetites of boys and lack of provision  for it are the probable causes' of  much of the under-nutritiou seen in  children of school age.  At this particular school, bread,  butter, milk and sugar together furnished half of the food fuel, and the  Journal of the American Medical Association comments that this is an  exceptionally wholesome -cornbina-,  tion.  Look to Canada  For Fish Supply  Allied   Armies   as   Well  as   Civilian  Population Offer Big Business  The allied armies as well as a con-  countries, may find a check for their  siderable    proportion    of. the civilian  optimism in  the official statistics of - - -   -  the. Association of Iron and Cteel  Manufacturers, published in July.  The output of iron and steel for the  first six months of this year was.-  7,756,000 tons, compared with 6,187,-  000 tons in the first half of 1915, an  increase qf about 25 per cent. The  combined'production of thc Central  Powers in' 1915 was 15,944,200 tons of  steel, while the allied "countries produced 17,000,000 tons.  It becomes more and more clear-  to all who have made a thorough  study "of the military situation that  the war will be ended, not by the  sudden collapse of our enemies'  economic system, not by the development of revolutionary tumults, but  by the persistent use of gums and  men. We have established ascendancy in many respects, in precision  of artillery fire, in air work, in the  morale of our men. The continuous  and annoying pressure of our blockade is most damaging to the nerves  of the civilian population, but blockade is always a secondary, though  effective, method of warfare. The  primary method is to capture German positions on land and to press  back German armies.   To do that the  supply of men should be continuous,  and therefore the work of recruiting  is the most insistent task of the day.  ���������Toronto News.  Rumania Encourages Horse Breeding  The Rumanian regulation with regard to brood mares aims at improving and increasing the breed of hor-:  ses in that country. With a view to  this the Ministry of Agriculture is lo  distribute each'' year l'OOO brood  marcs at specially low prices to peasants who have given proof of their  ability as horse breeders, on condition  that they possess sanitary stables and  sufficient land for growing the requisite forage. The peasant'who benefits by this concession incurs certain  liabilities, and must'not sell ;the mare  thus, acquired until four v'ears after  the date of purchase.  population of Great Britain are now  looking to Canada for a steady supply of fish diet to make, up for meat  scarcity and to offset high prices for  meats. The minister of militia has  received from England a request to  put through an order for one million  and a half pounds of fresh frozen fish  for the British soldiers. Canadian  soldiers in England have been receiving a weekly ration of Canadian fish  for some months past. Arrangements  have now been made to supply the  Canadians in the trenches with a fish  ration and specially prepared tins arc  being sent forward.  The British authorities have beCD  impressed with the cheapness and desirability of a fish ration and want a  similar supply for the British troops.  There is also a gradually increasing  demand from civilians for Canadian  fish. Italy and France arc also beginning to look to the Canadian supply-  Sir Sam Hughes said that exports  of Canadian fish to thc allied countries would soon total a million  pounds pcr week. When in England  last August Sir Sam took up with the  British authorities the question of a  fish ration for British troops and urged that orders'be placed in Canada  through the Canadian war purchasing  commission.  Major Plugh Green, of Prince Albert, whom Sir Sam sent over to  England last winter to start thc fish  rations for the Canadian troops, is  also looking after the popularizing of  the general use of Canadian fish in  Great Britain.  Is Father of the  "Safety First" Idea  Mr.  Dunlop, a   Valued   Employee  of  the C.P.R., to Take a  Well-  Earned Vacation  Acting upon the advice of his physician, Mr. N. S. Dunlop, tax and insurance commissioner of the C.P.R.,  has decided to take a prolonged rest.  Mr.-Dunlop has been in the service of  the company for 29 years. He joined  the latter in "1888 at'Toronto. The  year afterwards he was appointed tax  and insurance commissioner and  claims adjuster. In these capacities  Mr. Dunlop did excellent work. As  claims adjuster he won the regard not  only of the executive, but of the public as well, as it was felt that Mr.  Dunlop was, above all things, a man  of probity and would only do what  was fair and equitable.  In 1914 he was appointed insurance  and tax commissioner, giving to these  duties his whole time. This was rendered imperative by the growth of  the C.P.R. property, which required,  from thc tax and insurance point of  view,  the  utmost  care.  Mr. -Dunlop may be said to be the  father of Safety First on the Canadian railways; and into this work he  threw himself with " splendid enthusiasm���������doing much to popularize the  movement. As far as the outside public is concerned, he is best known as  thc creator of the floral department  of "the C.P.R. He began in 18S9, to  save flower seeds from his own gar-  clen; and conceived the idea of  spreading the cult of flowers over the  system. He was a flower, nature and  book lover; and the work was congenial to him. He sent out seeds and  bulbs to the agents and others along  thc system; and soon, from ocean to  ocean,-the plots in front of hundreds  of stations were ablaze with flowers.  He gave prizes; and labored in every  way to make this feature notable. In  this he succeeded abundantly; and  today the C.P.R. from coast to coast  has its innumerable garden plots,  which owe their existence to Mr.  Dunlop's solicitude.  Mr. Dunlop is a member of the  New York State Stenographic Association, one of the oldest and largest  associations of shorthand men in the  world; but his brochure, "What the  Flowers Tell Us," and his. work of  adorning thc C.P.R. in its physical aspects, with floral beauty, will be Mr.  Dunlop's best recognition in connection with his long service with the  C.P.R.  A New World to Come  Anticipates Him  "Do you ever ask your wife's advice about  things?"  "No", sir; she doesn't wait to be  asked."  All the steam railways in New Zealand are owned and operated by the  government. There are about 3,000  miles of road in operation, and 100  lines arc under construction.  After the War, World's Work  Will  Be Greatly Advanced  It must be plain to those who have  studied thc position in all belligerent  and in many neutral countries with  any care that thc work of the statesmen at thc present moment is not  so much the devising of specific  schemes for meeting post-war conditions, though these have, of course,  their proper place, as of thc arousing  of men to a recognition of thc fact  that the end of the war will find them  to a very large extent in a new world.  Not a few of thc great questions of  two years ago will be found to nave  settled themselves, and men everywhere will be called upon to take up  the world's great problems at a point  far in advance of that at which they  left them two years ago.���������Christian  Science .Monitor.

At that moment  there came to the ears of both the  sound of Joe Wright's voice, loud,  harsh, aggressive, coming from the  terrace, where he appeared to be engaged in an altercation with Captain  Dalmaine.  Lord Moorhampton drew himself  up.--"  "What an appalling voice that fellow has got!" he exclaimed irritably..  "It's thc most disagreeable voice I;  ever heard," chimed in Mabin with so  much energy that Lord Moorhampton turned round, and smiling, half  in surprise and'half in amusement,  stooped to look into her face in the  growing dusk.  Hut he could not see much of it,  for Mabin bent her head and bit her  lip, and as she was sitting with her  back to the fading light, the rosy red  color which al once spread over her  cheeks and forehead could not be detected.  "Have you met Wright before?"  asked   Lord  Moorhampton  abruptly.  Mabin looked up, catching her  breath.  "t���������I���������I    don't    know,"     she said,'  speaking in jerks, *and in  evident agj  t.itiou,  "whether    you   would     ca"  meeting     him.

Then,  when she paused, he rose slowly, and  began to walk up and down the room,  a frown on his face, his hands clasped  behind his back, thoughtful, bewildered, evidently a prey to the most agitating reflections.  At last, when he stopped short a  few paces from her, Mabin said in  a strangled voice���������  "What could I do but come and  tell you? That is why I came, to find  out the friends of the man who was  either murdered or half-murdcrcd. I  found a scrap of a half-burnt letter  at the hotel where he had been, and  on it saw thc address, 'Heath Hill.'  That is what brought -me here.

But how  came you������������������"  "To be interested in him? From  the moment he spoke to mc, I liked  him, I thought him strangely nice  and���������and unlike other people."   ....  "And you think he was deliberately murdered by Wright?"  "I do think so."  Lord Moorhampton frowned in  evident perturbation. It struck Mabin that he was even more disturbed  by the unpleasant duties the suspicion would entail upon him than by  the news itself.  "1 must make inquiries," he said  with an air of distressful resignation.  "I must consult my solicitors about  thc course to be taken.. In tlie meantime, I beg you to say nothing about  this to anyone here, to anyone anywhere." ,  "Of course not. But I have something, more to tellyou, Lord Moorhampton."  "Something more?"  He had taken up the telephone that  lay  on   his  desk,  and  now  he  put   it  down in alarm.  "Yes. He has left a child, a .ittle  son. Pie is at my mother's House,  He is about four years old, and die  sweetest little hoy in  the world."  Lord Moorhampton was moved at  last t'o thc very depths of his being  "A child! A son? Ciprian has a  son? Plow did you find him? Tell  mc without the least reserve everything you know, from the very beginning."  Mabin obeyed, losing her fears and  her nervousness when she saw that  al last she had aroused in him thc  keenest and liveliest attention. No  detail did she omit, and she was gratified to sec that at least, however she  -^f-finighl have felt wounded by his coin-  .''j parative coolness about the fate of  the son who had been estranged from  him for so long, he was keenly interested about the boy.  "If he was married," he exclaimed  more* than once, with such evident  pleasure that she was struck by the  fact, "the boy is my heir."  She, being mistrustful of Lady  Moorhampton, could not but think  that Lord Moorhampton's mind had  been poisoned against his son Ciprian  by his wife, for some reason which  she   could   not   even   guess   at.      But  it was clear that he felt more interest  in (lie unknown "Dibs" than he did  in the sickly and unattractive son of  thc second Lady Moorhampton.  When Mabin had finished her  story, Lord Moorhampton, now intensely excited, went again to the  telephone.  He had scarcely got tlie instrument  in his hand and called out the number  he wanted when the door.opened and  Lady Moorhampton came in.  She was quick to see that her husband; was in a state of excitement unusual with him, and she threw a mistrustful glance at Mabin.  "Who are you speaking to, Edric?"  she asked.  He looked up, his eyes very bright;  '"To" my solicitors. I've just found  out; something."  Again the lady's glance was directed upon  thc secretary.  "Found out something?   What?"  ''., Mabin    was trembling for    the answer he would give.   But Lord Moorhampton turned to his wife, and said:  "Ciprian has left a son.    My heir."  Lady Moorhampton recovered her  self-command, and tried to answer in  the same tone as her husband:  "Obliged! WI13', so am I, of course.  Deeply obliged."  But Mabin stood dumb, appalled by  dangers which she knew that the indiscreet revelation on the part of  Lord Moorhampton had brought  upon poor "Dibs."    '  (To Be Continued.)

How Huns Treat Prisoners  Got    Seven  Days    for    Stealing  Carrot  An escaped British prisoner from  one of the German camps furnishes  up-to-date light upon the treatment  that is still meted out to English and  Colonial men in -at least some camps.

These pills actually make  new, rich blood which brings a glow  of health     to  anaemic cheeks; cures  indigestion, headaches and backaches,  drives out the stinging pains of rheumatism " and neuralgia,     strengthens  the  nerves  and  relieves  as  no other  medicine can do the aches and pains  from   which  womanfolk alone suffer.  In any emergency of poor health give  Dr.   Williams   Pink Pills   a  fair  trial  and    they will    not disappoint    you.  Here is a  case that will  bring hope  to many a weary sufferer.    Mrs.    E.  C. Taylor, Ascbt-Ave., Toronto, says:  "A few years ago I was so run down  with   anaemia   that   I  walk  about   the  house,  and  was   not  able lo leave it.    I had no color; my  appetite    was  poor    and  I  was; constantly     troubled     with     headaches,  dizzy spells    and general    disinclination  lo move  about or. do  anything.  I  tried many medicines,'but none of  them"' .helped    mc,  and    my friends  thought' I  was  in  a  decline.       One  day a friend  who was in   to sec  mc  asked  if  I  had     tried  Dr.  Williams  Pink P-ills.    I had heard of this medicine often, but had not used il, so I  determined to give it a trial.    I certainly got a pleasant surprise, for after using two  boxes'! coulcl^fccl  an  improvement in my condition.   ' Continuing thc use of these pills, I began  lo   regain  my   health,   the   headaches  and  dizzy spells    were disappearing,  and I began to gain weight.      People  began   enquiring  what  I  was   taking  and I was not slow to give Dr. Williams -Pink  Pills   the  credit.    I took  the pills for less  than'*   two months,  and completely regained my old-time  health and strength.

General as Trench Digger  A new story is going thc rounds  about General Birdwood, commander-in-chief of tlie Australian forces.

Thc weather was bad and the  work hard, and one of thc New Zea-  landers when questioned by General  Birdfvood as lo how he found things,  venlurcd to make a mild protest at  the amount of trench digging lo be  done. "Well, my dear fellow," said  thc General, "I know i it's ��������� pretty  tough, but it's got lo be done, and I'm  hanged if I am going to do it all myself."     %     .  Such is his method, and every.man  who ever served tinder him loves him  for his humor and comradeship.  A correspondent in the Nation has  suggested that while the Germans  have thc intellectual virtues of diligence and system, flic British, on the  (other hand, have thc higher intellectual virtues of initiative and originality. It rather reminds one of Walter Pater's famous distinction between the "centripetal" Doric genius,  which ordered and systematized  ideas, and thc "centrifugal" Ionic genius, which was always flying off at .  tangent after new ideas. Thc former  would correspond to the German and  thc latter to the British types. If  there is anything in it, we may perhaps explain thc British initiative by  the intellectuals and social freedom  nurtured by nearly a thousand years  of immunity from invasion.���������Manchester'Guardian.
