The juinual stock-taking was  completed last night at the big  stores of the Hedley Trading  Company.  There is a mild epidemic of  measles in Keremeos. That is  the reason for no Keremeos  correspondence this issue.  Owing to increased consumption of coal and wood in the  past week, the Gazette cash  balance of $1.60 has vanished.  Dun and Brapstreets please  note.  John Jackson of the Great  Northern hotel returned yesterday from Oroville, where he  was operated on abouc three  weeks ago. He has almost  fully recovered.  The Keremeos-Hedley hockey  match, which was to have been  played here Saturday afternoon did not come off owing to  measles down the valley. ^ A  measley shame, as an exciting  game was anticipated.  The annual session of the  Provincial Grand Orange Lodge  will be held in Princeton Feb.  20, 21 and 22, inst. A concert  is to be given Tuesday evening,  20th inst., at which one or more  speeches will be made outlining  the aims of the order.  The weather for the past  four days has been down in the  cellar.

At the annual Hedley hospital benofit ball last Friday evening very enjoyable hours were  spent.  A delightful program of music  was arranged by ther members  of the Hedley band; while Mr.  Gillespie assisted by bringing  out the best from the splendid  player piano of tho opera house,  Other delightful numbers were  rendered by Mrs. Sproule and  Miss Inknian, thus allowing tho  the members of the band to en-  joy a dance or two.  Mr. C P. Dalton, acting as  master of ceremonies, gave general satisfaction.  The refreshments were served  by Mrs. Winkler, who must  have spent much time in preparation to display such a deli-  cions spread.  The fact of the ball being  such a success may be due to  the prominent position ladies  have taken in the past year or  two. Much has been left to  their discretion in the past 365  days and it is hoped that the  men will soon recover from  their dormant condition. The  present year may once more see  them active.  The people indulged in the  very latest and most up-to-date  dances, only a few falling back  into the old-fashioned One Step  and Fox Trot.  The net proceeds amounted  to $60.-^Com.  the  was  Hospital Meeting.

The Dominion government  have appointed a board of pension commissioners for Canada  with offices in Ottawa: As this  board wish to cause as little delay tis possible in dealing with  communications in regard to  pensions, they wish the public  to corresporid diredtly with the  board of pensions commissioners, Ottawa.  A great deal of delay may be  caused by communications being sent through other departments of the government.  The Patriotic Fund association and the Military Hospitals  commission have kindly consented to give information and  assistance to those wishing to  write direct to the ��������� Board of  Pension Commissioners. These  societies have offices iu certain  localities throughout Canada.  In addition, in ordor to facilitate the granting of pensions,  the board is opening branch  offices in Vancouver, Calgary,  Edmonton, Regina and Winnipeg in the Western provinces.  All information with regard to  pensions may be obtained from  these offices.  W J Forhe-*.- ���������      4.50 when the glass broke.

They have been most helpful  an showing the country what it can  do towards supplying its own needs.  Thc war orders have tested the country's supply of raw material and the  skill of its mechanics. When the  war orders shall have slopped, Canada will be prepared to go on with  the production of manufactured articles on a scale that it could not have  attained in many years without the  instruction and experience that have  come with the demand for munitions.  The war has cost Canada dearly, but  the experience -will not leave the  country without some valuable compensation, especially in an enlarged  knowledge of itself. ��������� Christian Science Monitor.  To the Rescue  Time for Civilization to Defend Itself Against War  This war is by far thc most terrible of all wars in the scale of its  destruction and the horrihle nature  of the instruments of destruction  which it employs. Tlie next war is  likely'to be worse, for as science progresses and the ingenuity of man extends, so is the mechanism of war  likely to become ever more diabolically destructive. Is it not time for  civilization to defend itself? Should  we not apply some portion of thc  energy and the contrivance which wc  lavish, on war and its preparation to  the preparation and _ the buttressing  of peace? It is not impossible. Thc  way has long been discerned, and it  needs little more than goodwill and  a fixed resolve to achieve the triumph more glorious than any which  arms can bring.���������From the Manchester Guardian.

Gasoline as Wash for Wounds  Contused, lacerated wounds with  dirt ground into them arc cleaned  with gasoline in a field hospital in  France. The .skin and then the surface of* the wound are rubbed with  a swab or absorbent cotton soaked in  gasoline. Thc interior of the wound  is swabbed out with gasoline as far  as can be reached with pledgets of  cotton wrapped around a forceps.  Gasoline causes no pain, but it will  cause blisters if left on and covered  with bandages that prevent evaporation. Medical journals say gasoline  has long been used by workmen in  factories for cleaning dirty .cuts and  lacerations. ���������  A Tree Prescription You Can Hare Filled  and Use at Horns  LONDON.���������Do you -arear glasses?

"I told him I would  have him out iu a week and he laughed at me. But I look him a bottle of  Sloan's Liniment, that night he put  some on and noticed the ankle fell  better. I told hi hi to use it every day,  and in three days his ankle was practically-well..' In four days he was  working. He gladly admits that  Sloan's Liniment "put him '"on -his  feet."

'<  Over the field move the stretcher-  bearers and casually squads with officers collecting identification discs  or recording wounds and destinations. After these come thc new salvage corps, whose quick eyes and  practical instincts save thc nation enormous sums, as I shall show. These  men gather up broken weapons, clothing, and equipment of all kinds,  from a belt or a cartridge clip to an  aeroplane propeller. They load up  horsed wagons with this valuable  "rubbish" and transfer it on the road  to motor lorries that chug off to railhead for the Army Ordnance bas'ev  And here you will find a mushroom j  industrial town, with khaki armies of  its own, as well as Frenchwomen at  American machines that sew and  mend and. patch with magical celerity.

Staying* With Allies  To the Last Man  So each sturdy tipper must stand  three good soles; thc wear and tear  of trench warfare on all equipment is  truly tremendous. The finest khaki  uniform cycr*woven on the Leeds  looms is soon caked with clay and  jagged- by the never-ending barbed  wire;  Ten sizes in boots are looked out,  then handed over tothe cobblers and  their whirring machines. When mended these boots pass into women's  hands for further sprucing and a bath  of castor oil. It is a fact that_ Tommy prefers these to new pairs, so  soft and pliable arc they to the soldier's feet. In tunics and trousers  and greatcoats gigantic renovation is  made. There arc new engines of ingenious type for steaming and disinfecting all garments. These are afterwards ironed and pressed and folded for re-issue on a, great scale-  Utterly hopeless uniforms are first  stripped of their buttons _ (you will  see women filling sacks with these),  and then cut up as woollen rags for  return to England, where they sell  for as much as $90 a ton. So the  Quartermaster-General is the thrifty  "housewife" of our army. Nothing is  wasted. Even old tins are pierced  with holes, and go-back as trench  stoves, with prospects of hot cocoa  and steaming slew.    ������������������  Other tins are cut up for labels.  And here is a ..circular saw with the  lifted wheels of an ambulance chassis supplying power to il. This ingenious device is slicing odds - and  ends of wood into tent-pegs of various sizes in view of the coming summer campaign.

For, remember, unless this battlefield litter were collected, sorted, and  repaired by khaki-civilian ministry,  new articles would have to be issued  by the Army Ordnance Department  at a cost of thousands of pounds a  day- "Efficiency first and then economy" is the motto of the; Quartermaster-General at Headquarters,-.and  throughout all ranks of administrative service, down to the Q.M.S. of  company or platoon������������������himself the caterer and housekeeper of his unit in  conjunction with the cook.

The regimental cook  was; probably educated in the Salamanca, School at Aldershot. Quite  likely a wise woman had a hand in  his kitchen education, teaching:him  new lessons in food values and varieties.'  "No waste" is the reiterate watch-  word_ of our six-figure army, and the  warning is seen in wondrous operation in those humming ordnance  sheds, where the rubbish of the battlefield is - first dumped, then sorted  and transformed out of all recognition, so as to reduce the cost of a  campaign which, as the Prime Minister reminds us, "already exceeds the  flight of any financier's, imagination."  ���������W- G.

The Non-Returned Aeroplane  What happened to one of the two  British aeroplanes that attacked thc  hangars and aerodromes of the Germans in the vicinity of Brussels has  been  cleared up.  As thc machine descended in the  night and the motor was stopped it  was neither heard nor seen. The pilot and ihe observer attempted for  three-quarters of an hour to re-start*  the engine but without success, and  they therefore set fire to it to prevent it from falling into thc hands  of the Germans.  The two brave aviators then succeeded in hiding and eluding capture  until Tuesday, October 17, when a  .squad of German soldiers appeared  at the house of a schoolmaster in a  small Flemish commune and arrested  the two men in the schoolhouse,  where  they had passed the night.  The schoolmaster was_ also arrested on a charge of complicity and the  prisoners were then removed by rail.  Thc schoolmaster has in all probability been shot by this time.  Lord Derby Explains What Conscription Really Means  Lord Derby, in an interview in  London with a special correspondent  of the Paris Journal, said:  "I cannot sec how anyone can feel  the slightest uneasiness respecting  thc results in maii-power of the  Compulsory Service Acts. Unfortunately people sometimes^ lose sight  of thc fact that if soldiers are necessary in thc trenches and for the  artillery they arc .also necessary in  life rear, and men arc also required  to work iii J.hc munition factories  and on equipment.^- '  "The whole question is one of proportioning thc one to the other and,  so as to obtain thc best results possible, to employ each in the sphere  in which he is most suitable.  "The great difficulty is not of  finding men. We can with a stroke  of the pen send hundreds of thousands of men to thc colors, but, since  we have already embodied all those  who were employed in "luxury" industries or those' who were not. absolutely indispensable, our new recruits must be drawn from the ranks  of those who perform, essential duties.  "You understand- what degree of  prudence is necessary in dealing with  thc staffs at munition factories and  in the mines and also with the crews  of merchant vessels. However, wc  are unceasingly performing the labor day by day. We are thus in a  position to pass a certain number of  men to the colors. Our one anxiety  is to exploit our resources in men to  the_ best common advantage of the  Allies. We arc with you to the last  minute, and if necessary to the last  man."

He is, the young  man who induced the Government to  supply fish to the fighters, and the  idea has now been taken up by thc  British authorities.  "It is only a matter of producing  the fish ,and getting it over," said  Major Green. "Once this is done, the  market is good for a million dollars  a week. I hope to make plans for  shipments up to 5,000,000 pounds a  week from Canada. The fish is  here if they will go after it."  Major Green is now representing  the British Board of Trade in buying  for the War Office. Since thc fish  supply to the Canadians in England  was inaugurated last spririg,"'2,500,000  pounds have been sent over. The  cost laid, down in London averages  between 8 and 10 cents a pound.  Canadian halibut landed for the  forces costs 13 cents, while, according to Major. Green, the prevailing  price in London is 56 cents.  "A change of diet in the trenches  is always welcome," said* Major  Green, "and if Canada could produce  it, the'Allied armies would take ten  million cans a week. The Canadian  fish business; in England is not ephemeral. It has become, so popular  that the demand for frozen fish is  bound to keep, up permanently after  the war is concluded. We are now  .figuring" on supplying the Australian  and New Zealand forces in England  to the extent of 80,000 pounds a  week."  Major Green is a young Scotchman who previously to going dyer-  seas was - in the fish business in  Saskatoon. He is in Ottawa to negotiate' with the Fisheries Department  and the War Purchasing Commission, and to . organize a business  whose prospects he regards as illimitable. Thc Major will visit the principal  centres of the  fishing industry.  The Ubiquitous Turkey  The Domesticated Kind Now Found  in Almost Every Country  In every corner of the globe almost,, at least where civilization has  spread its epicurean taste, may be  found* thc domesticated turkey���������not,  however, of his own volition. Never  would he, in his wild slate, have  sought to cross the stormy seas to  find green fields and pastures new.  As a flier, thc turkey is not a pronounced success. He flies ponderously, almost painfully, and with great  effort, and only when very much  frightened. His flight can be sustained for only a short distance, but  what the. wild turkey lacks as an  aviator he fully makes up as a  sprinter. He can outrun a racehorse, especially in his own native  forest, where undergrowth and bushes  seem  but  to add  to  his  speed.  He was taken over the ocean * by  thc hand of man, first to Spain, then  to other Mediterranean countries, to  northern Europe, and thc far east,  until now he is well-nigh omnipresent. And this spreading out of his  kind even unto the ends of the earth  is all due to thc entrancing qualities  his meat takes on when properly baked or roasted.

Thai farming developments have  been handicapped in the past, and  are being handicapped now, by the  lack of available capital and ready  money is a ' fact known to even a  casual observer of thc situation.   .  Huge commercial enterprises are  floated on borrowed capital, cities  and nations make liberal use of thc  wealth o������-others, paying a small percentage for the privilege of so So-  ing, even the large expense" of the  present war is met mostly by borrowed money, and yet, the most fundamental of all industries, and thc  one in w*hich money .can be more  safely invested than in. any other,  goes abegging often for a few dollars  lo tide over a poor season or to increase the' productive powers of the  land.  The West is seeing that the situation is detrimental to the best interests of the country and tlie governments of some of* the western  provinces are taking steps to remedy  the matter. The clamor of the farmers for cheap- money and easy facilities for securing loans in rural communities has crystalized in a plan  being advanced by the Manitoba  Government unique in many respects  but'1 perfectly sound as a financial  proposition, according to many substantial citizens.  It will become effective as soon  as the legislature meets and contemplates an ultimate investment of fifty  million dollars to be employed in  farm loans at five and six per cent,  in amounts ranging from $500' to  $10,000 over a period of forty years,  a certain part and principal payable  semi-annually.  A committee of the legislature has  been working for some time with the  Provincial Union of iVlunicipalities,  of Grain Growers, the Credit Men's  Association and leading financial  figures of the province and the  scheme as planned represents the  combined  wisdom  of this  clement.  Saskatchewan adopted the French  plan of rural credits, but Manitoba  thinks hers will be an improvement.  At least it possesses the merit of  soundness for it makes the land of  each municipality where loans are  made security for any loss sustained  in the operation in that particular  part  of  the  province.:  A unique feature of the plan is the  fact that the borrower has to accept  five per .tent, of this loan in stock  of the Government Company. To  keep this ^stock out of the -hands of  ordinary investors' it is made nontransferable and is attached to the  mortgage. All profit of the plan goes  to  the borrowers, however.  In the _ beginning the Government  will provide a working capital stock  of $100,000 and will borrow $1,000,-  000 to initiate 'the organization. ���������'*���������' Increased sums will'be provided as the  demand for loans increases. One  month after the idea is approved by  the legislature loans will begin to  be made in the province. After one  million,, dollars in loans have accumulated the government will begin the  sale of bonds, based upon the mortgages secured in the transactions.  These securities will bear five per  cent, interest and be guaranteed by  the government.       *  In addition, the mortgages will be  collateral security and all the "real  estate in each municipality will be  subject__ to a special levy to make  good a'hy loss sustained by a loan  made in  that locality.  This plan is the product of the  discussion thc farmers of the West  have been engaged in for some years.  Mortgage and loan company representatives assert frankly that they  are hostile to thcridca. They claim  that money is going begging on even  more favorable terms. They say since  the 1915 crop so many of their mortgages have been paid up and cancelled that they cannot invest their  surplus funds. Tliey intimate, however, that the proposition is sound  in so far as it can be worked without loss lo investors.  When rural credits are spoken of  in the West, three distinct classes  may be included in the reference.  First there is thc long term or  mortgage credit given on the security of the farmer's lands, by trust  and mortgage companies." The term  is usually five years in this class and  thc mortgage is capable of renewal.  Thc rate of interest charged is eight  or nine pcr cent.  Secondly, there'is the short term  bank credit, which is primarily intended as an accommodation to current business. The security given is  the farmer's note and the rate of interest usually is eight per cent.  Thirdly, there is the miscellaneous  class, chief of which is the machinery  credits. These also include lumber  and all retail store credits. The rate  of interest varies from ten to fifteen  pel* cent.  It is now generally agreed by farmers, bankers and mortgage company men alike that the present financial problems of the country would  be greatly simplified if the people on  the land had not accepted so much  of thc third class of credits.    There  is no doubt .that much of the sore-  .uess and agitation which have arisen  in the West over the alleged lack of  financial accommodation for farmers has been due to the evil of abundant credit of the third class, given  during the years of rampant speculation.  Mortgage loans for purposes of  capital expenditure constitute the  other side "of rural credits. Into this  field the provincial governments propose especially, to enter with their  co-operative - schemes. Instead # of  five-year mortgage loans at eight  and n-'ne per cent, from private corporations they will arrange to supply capital to ,the farmers at six and  seven per cent. The private loan  companies, moreover, at the present  time welcome,the prospect of the entrance of the western provincial governments into the business of money-lending. They hold that now in  the West a. first mortgage is deprived of its just rights by certain drastic legislation, such as the exemptions acts of Saskatchewan and Alberta. The Dominion seed grain  liens are regarded as another damaging influence to the position of a  first mortgage. *  If the provincial governments undertake to guarantee loans to farmers they will have, so the loan companies say, to correct much of their  own legislation. At any rate, the.  West is booked for important financial reforms,^ and, as in thc case of  all reforms^ final good will come only  with experience and possibly many  blunders. That the farmers will benefit there can be no doubt.���������Montreal  Family Herald.

The biggest naval  guns at present arc the 15-inchcrs of  the Queen Elizabeth class, and they  arc an enormous increase over thc  12-inch guns of the Dreadnought  class. Naval architects���������could probably take care of the designing of  ships with stability sufficient to  mount 18-inch guns; though the  shock to the ship as a pair, or a  lirpadsidc, of 18-inch guns recoiled  would set up very heavy internal  strains. The battleship would have  lo be built strong enough to hold  something like an earthquake, or a  volcanic eruption, inside.  Thc mechanical difficulties of  mounting gun barrels, 18 inches in  the bore, perhaps 70 feel long and  weighing well over 100 tons each,  would be many. It is hard lo imagine  such long steel barrels so delicately  mounted as to be trained and elevated and deflected with llic precision  and smoothness of the hands of a  watch! But how much more remarkable to have the monster barrels so  nicely balanced in cradles and coupled up to recoil cylinders and running-out springs, that when they  jump back���������perhaps seven or eight  feet, at lightning speed in recoil���������  as the shell is tearing with volcanic  energy out of thc muzzle, lite barrels would be under .complete control. The recoil has to be taken up  almost as smoothly as the running  of a piston in an engine cylinder, and  the barrels returned lo their original  places, ready for firing the next  round without deviation.  The gun mounting designer? would  also be faced with the task of rapidly delivering 3,000-poimd shells  from thc shell-rooms, several decks  below, to Ihe gun turrets. The 3,000-  poundcrs could hardly be whisked up  and slapped inlo the breech with the  briskness of 18-poundcr shells. But  perhaps the big problem confronting  ordnance designers iu getting out the  monster guns would be in tho barrel  itself. There is a limit lo the toughness of steel. What would be ihe  effect on the inner lining of an 18-  inch gun after several huge charges  of the propelling explosives had been  fiicd in   il?  So long ago as 1871, writes thc  Ottawa Citizen, leading British authorities on explosives, Sir Andrew  Noble and Sir F. A. Abel, calculated  that the tension of fired gunpowder  set lip a pressure on Ihe gun barrel  of 40 tons lo the square inch. There  is no text book lo tell what pressure  is set up by the explosives used in  this age of monster guns. It is  known, approximately, to 'only the  inner circle of armament masters.  The metallurgists have made great  strides in the improvement of steel.  Can they keep up with the demands  of the ordnance designers and thc  ballistic engineers? The life of the  present 15-incher is short; would  the rumored 18-inch guns last, say,  100 rounds of. 3,000-pound shells? Or  would the inner lining of the big gun  barrels be so eroded as to allow the  explosive gases to escape past the  shell and thus destroy the range of  thc gun? Rumor at Washington does  not say.  What   Is  Restore  Wooden Sailing: Vessels  Cost   of   Construction  40  Per  Cent.  Higher Than Five Years Ago  "It will be very interesting to note  how long the boom in the construction of wooden ships, particularly at  Canadian Atlantic ports and on the  Pacific coast generally, will survive  llic close of the war in Europe," comments Ihe editor of Fairplay. "From  Nova Scolia it is stated that there is  a marked revival in this particular industry, and that at present there is in  hand "about double the tonnage which  was under construction in any recent  year. Several new yards have been  opened for wooden shipbuilding, and,  although the cost of construction is  40 pcr cent, more than it was five  years ago, there is a steady demand  tor vessels lo share in thc high  freights now ruling and in the prosperity of thc fishing industry. A similar story comes from the Pacific  coast. There the legislature of British Columbia is considering a bill for  the encouragement of shipping and  shipbuilding and proposing to guarantee 55 per cent, of thc actual cost  of inaugurating shipbuilding, ship repairing and docking plants in thc  province, the guaranteed intcresl on  bonds to be 6 per cent.

Eight    large  Being   Done    to  Then   Ability  The Military Hospitals Commission al Ottawa informs us that 2,081  soldiers were under its care at thc  beginning of this month. Of these,  426 were at Sanatoria- for tuberculosis, and 1,616 at convalescent hospitals, 682 of the latter being outpatients���������while 39 members of thc  force were in asylums for the insane.  Of the 426 cases of tuberculosis; it  may be added, almost exactly half  were discovered in time to prevent  litem from leaving Canada for thc  seat  of war.  According to a statement prepared  by the Militia .Department, up to October 5, 1916, the number of soldiers  sent back to Canada because of medical unfitness was 6,208. Of these, 961  were suffering from wounds, shell-  shock, or the effect of gas; 122 were  insane; 245 were afflicted with tuberculosis; while thc remainder, 4,880,  were suffering from other diseases  and disabilities.  All Canadians ought to know what  is being done by the Military^ Hospitals Commission, acting on behalf  of thc whole body of citizens, for the  restoration of their wounded defenders to a position of self-support and  independence.  Every disabled soldier is medically  examined on arriving at Quebec. If  he is no longer in need of hospital  treatment, he is sent home frce of  expense and discharged with a pension or gratuity according to the extent  of his disability.  If he needs further treatment, he is  taken to the hospital or sanatorium  where thc treatment most suitable to  his case is,available, and, if possible,  to Ihe institution' nearest his home..  Men who cannot resume their former  work on discharge from hospital are  advised and enabled to take special  training for new occupations. This  is provided free of cost; and "while  tlie men arc being trained the Dominion Government maintains them  'and  their families.  Men needing artificial limbs arc taken to Toronto, where these limbs  arc made and supplied without  charge. Men with serious nerve disorders are treated specially in the  Ontario Military Hospital at Co-  bourg.  Each Provincial Government has  appointed a Commission to help discharged men in securing steady and  remunerative work. The Dominion  Government, and other authorities  and employers, systematically give  preference to returned soldiers when  filling vacant positions.  The public can and should co-operate heartily in this urgently necessary work, by encouraging .the men  to take fullest advantage of the curative and educational opportunities  given them, and afterwards by seeing  that they get work. Local committees have been formed for this purpose in many towns, but much more  has to be done in this way.  The treatment, most carefully carried out in accordance with the latest discoveries and the provedresults  of medical experience, includes many  forms of strengthening exercises, often requiring special and costly ~"?.p-  paratus; the scientific use of electricity, massage, and continuous baths  for affected limbs; with wise dieting  and fresh air as a matter of course.  Occupation is often as necessary  and beneficial as rest itself, in its curative and strengthening effect on  body and mind. Classes are therefore  held at the hospitals, for instruction  and practice in many arts and industries, such as carpentry and wood-  carving, metal and leather working,  typewriting and book-keeping, mechanical drawing and elementary engineering, gardening, bee-keeping  and  poultry raising.  These all help to increase the capacity of Ihe patients, and to lessen  the effect of any injury they have received, by getting them into practice  for such industries as they can profitably undertake. The medical and  educational officers try first to discover what each man is most likely  to succeed at, and then to fit him for  it  as   thoroughly as  possible.  It has been wisely decided that no  man shall forfeit any part of his pension on account of his industry and  enterprise in improving his own financial position.  Let our readers write without hesitation to the secretary of the Military Hospitals Commission at Ottawa, or to the Provincial Commission at the Provincial capital, asking  any further information they may desire, or giving practical suggestions  resulting from thought or experience.  Stefansson Exploring  Extensive New Land  Is Adding New Territory to thc Map  of  Canada  Thc reports from Vilhjaliiiar Stefansson received by the naval department show thai the new land discovered and now being explored by  him is of very large extent. Stefansson has explored over one hundred  miles of coast line without any indications of an end of the new land.  Along the coast there are mountains four thousand feet high, and  beyond this range Stcfansso'n saw,  sonic miles inland, another'- range  with peaks eight thousand feet high.  This winter he will carry on the exploration both inland and further  along the coast.  The officials here, after going  through the reports, are confident  that Stefansson is amply provided  with provisions lo enable him to continue his work next summer. Thc explorer refers to the trouble with the  blonde Eskimos, as referred to in the  New York dispatches. He does not  seem to anticipate, however, any se  rious difficulty.  Ancient Bell Customs  Learning Ceaselessly  To   Stop  All  Learning  Is  to  Cease  Living  All life is an academy. Everyone  we meet is a potential teacher. The  mother learns from her infant who is  still unaware of the alphabet. The  instructor of. a class of boys and  girls continually learns from the pupils, and thc best teachers arc the  first to own the fact. Business itself  is a business college. Fashion in  dress is a cycle of imitation. We  copy all the time from one another;  we adapt to our own uses what we  see and hear. From one admired  friend wc take a trick of modulating  the voice; from another we derive  some feature of our apparel; from another wc obtain an opinion or. a  point of view which changes or supplants our previous theory. To stop  learning is to cease living. To lose  interest in true stories that are told  in our presence, by those who bore  a part in what they describe, is to  concede that we are out of the running and are content with the society of our own ingrowing personality. But the true scholar in the fine  art of living is a learner to the last.  ���������Philadelphia Ledger.  Two Hundred Years Ago Getting-up  Time Was 5 a.m.  The nine o'clock bell in the evening was an early observance by the  Massachusetts colony of tho old  English curfew bell, ll was rung in  Boston previous to 1(550 by thc town  bell-ringer who later also had charge  of the town clock, A century ago  three bells were rung in Boston���������at  eight in thc morning, one in the  afternoon, and nine m thc evening.  Two hundred years ago the hours  were five in the morning, eleven in  thc morning and nine al night. At  that date the inhabitants were not so  prompt in arising as in the previous  century, when thc bell was rung at  4.30 by thc first bell-ringer.  The midday bell was not rung to  call people to their noonday meal in  Boston. In 1664, "For the more convenient and expeditious dispatch of  Marchanls affaycrs oi- any other relating to strangers ,and our inhabitants, It is ordered that the Bell  .shall be rungc at a 11 of ye Clocke  every 'working day to give notis  thereof to all persons concerned, and  that the ringer shall be allowed 12p.  per yeare by every persons that commonly resort thereunto and that they,  may assemble in the Rome under thc  Towne house for the space of one  hower for the ends above expressed."  About 1730 the practice" of ringing  a bell at one was begun, though for  some years later requests were made  for an eleven o'clock bell at some of  the churches, and that practice continued in the last half of the eighteenth century. During that century  bells were rung between eight and  nine in the morning on the day of a  town meeting. On days of rejoicing  the bells were rung from six or seven  in the morning till noon, and from  two to six in the afternoon. The  allowances by- the town to sextons-'  for daily ringing were: For one '  ringing, $50; for two, $100, and for  three, $150 pcr annum.  Thc Civil War did more to abolish  the observance of Saturday night as  the beginning of Sunday, and finished the. falling away of the previous  twenty years. To the war must also  be credited the abandonment of Nr.w  England farms, started by the more  frequent intercourse .between town  and country by railroads.���������Boston  Transcript.  Rigid Food Economy  For Whole World  Surplus % of Wheat  Supplies Will Be  Greatly Reduced in Another  Year  Rigid, economy throughout the  world in the'consumption of food, in  view of the deficient crops and the  extraordinary . requirements of the  European armies, is urged by thc International Institute "of Agriculture,  which has made the most extensive  report'it has issued since thc war began. The institute- says' all nations  are confronted with a grave situation.  It is estimated that at least* 2;300,-  000,000 bushels of wheat will be consumed in the year ending July 31,  1917, and that at thc end of this  period the world's surplus supplies of  wheat will have decreased to 46,000,-  000 bushels. Thc report says it is  only on.account of the fact that last  year's harvest was abundant, leaving  a balance of 350,000,000 bushels, that  there is available sufficient wheat for  thc year ending with next July. '  The world's surplus of five cereals  ���������wheat, rye, barley, oats and corn  ���������is placed at'- 533,000,000 bushels.  -This includes flic unexportablc Russian stocks ' and also the stocks of  Rumania and Bulgaria. The surplus  of oats is placed at 166,000,000  bushels. A general scarcity of fodder  is  expected.  The total Russian stocks .of wheat  now1 stored, which, if military conditions permitted, would be available  for export at the next harvest are estimated at 300,000,000 bushels.

The tower boasted  of a base measurement of nearly six  hundred square jfeet, and rose to an  unknown height.

Bulgarian    Ladies    Mad    With  Lust for Blood  Following the raid upon Rumanian  territory by the Germans and Bulgarians an organized butchery of innocent and defenceless men, women  and children took place. When the  cry was raised, "Down with the Rumanians," and "To hell with their  women," the Germans, as usual, did  the thing systematically, putting  their Rumanian prisoners up in batches and shooting them in the market place and other convenient spaces.  Some of those who escaped state  that among the Bulgarian inhabitants who took part were well-dressed  women and "young men in light  suits and straw hats,"_ whilst thc women incited their children to share  in the revel. Knives, hatches, anything with which torture could be inflicted, were employed, and teeth  were freely used by the women.  Nameless horrors were performed  by these fiends in human shape.  Limbs were lopped off, eyes gougod  out, or as many wounds as possible  inflicted on their helpless victims.  There is in hospital today in Bucharest a raving lunatic, a lady of  good Rumanian family, the wife of a  judge who, hearing that the Rumanians were being massacred, rushed,  half-dressed, to thc tribunal to save  her husband. She arrived just in  time lo sec a hatchet descend on his  head and cleave his body nearly in  halves. ' She was found and recognized by some Rumanian officers,  who brought her to the capital.  Greek Claim as Originators Not Substantiated by the Known ���������  Facts  It is to the Chinese alone that the  world owes- the crealion of .china-  ware. While thc Greeks, .who have  persistently- laid claim to thc invention of this article of modern everyday .use, were "making experiments  with.terra cotla, thc Chinese had already completed the manufacture of  porcelain. The assertions by Chinese  histories that pottery was made in-  the -Chinese empire as far back as  2900/B.C. arc' open to ' considerable  question. It is a matter of indisputable record, however, that porcelain  was extensively produced in China  about 87 B.C.    .  From that period thc art, was developed and perfected through the  centuries, thc centre of the industry  being King-lc-Chin, where porcelain was first made in 580 A.D.,  while in the eighteenth century this  town possessed no fewer than 2,000  furnaces. Of al! Chinese porcelain,  the most prized, even to this day, is  the old blue ware, imitated by the  Dclf manufacturers.  From China lo Japan the knowledge of the production of porcelain  was carried on in 27 B.C. Seven  hundred years after the "first company of porcelain ; makers was established in Tokio. It- is, however,  rather in the production of pottery  than of porcelain that the Japanese  have displayed pre-eminent skill.  The first record of the appearance  of porcelain ware in Europe is in  1847, when Lorenzo de Medici.received from the Sultan of Egypt������������������.- a  present of blue Chinese. * porcelain.  The appearance- of chinaware in  Europe led to strenuous and intermittent efforts at imitation, the  earliest European porcelain of which  any examples exist being that made  in. 1580 by Francis de. Medici II.,  Grand Duke of���������'-'-Tuscany, this attempt, however, ceasing seven years  later. From time to time the industry appears to have been revived in  France, but'it was not until 1693 that  porcelain-making took firm root at  St. Cloud, to be further developed 50  years later at Vincennes.

Searchlight Emitting    Invisible Rays  Made By Inventor of F-Rays  Signor Giulio Ulivi, thc inventor of  "F" rays, was badly injured in a. laboratory experiment some lime ago,  and only recovered after many  months spent in a military hospital  at Milan. Signor Ulivi announces  now that he has succeeded in applying the invisible infra red waves beyond thc red band of the spectrum  to detect objects in darkness by determining their length.  Thc new invention is known as  "Scotoscopia," meaning vision iu  darkness, and consists of a searchlight emitting invisible rays which illuminate distant objects and render  them visible only to the observer.  Thus by means of Scotoscopic  searchlights warships are enabled to  see without being seen.  Photographs or rather Scotographs  of objects in darkness can be 'taken  and enlarged so that enemy coasts  can be mapped. The invention can  be used on land and sea as well as  in thc air, so that it will be found  most useful in waging war against  submarines and in defence against  aerial raids. Signals can be exchanged invisibly between ships equipped  with Scoto'scoplic apparatuses, and  other practical applications of this  wonderful invention can easily be obtained.  father's  Minister:    Is    your    poor  wound any better, my dear?

Embraces   All  Frozen North Country  The hardiest man in the house of  bishops of the Episcopal convention  at St. Louis was thc Rt. Rev. Peter  T. Rowc, Bishop of Alaska. He is  59 years old, and for twenty-one  years has braved the elements  Arctic winters 'in covering the six  hundred thousand square miles of  his diocese, the whole of Alaska,  once every three years, on snow-  shoes and by canoe, ministering to  whites, Indians and Eskimos. He is  known from Sitka to thc shores, of  the Arctic Ocean as the ministering  "brother  of thc lonely prospector.  To  be  Bishop of Alaska,     Bishop  Rowc says,    one    must    have    cast-  iron   digestive   organs.     Thc   Bishop  ���������of Alaska  frequently    finds  it necessary, to   sit down in a blizzard  lo  a  morsel   of   raw -whale   for   luncheon,  .or, if hard pressed, raw dog, in order  lo sustain life.   He must make forced  -marches    over icy wastes/   with  the  . mercury 50 to 80 degrees below zero.  Bishop    Rowe    related that a year  i\gb ' last   .winter,he stumbled  upon  .members   of   Stefansson's  Arctic   expedition near Point   Barrow,   Alaska,  groping    their  way  back  to' civilization.     The men had been  separated  from   the   main   expedition  and  were  -in  a pitiable plight.  Bishop 'Rowc is stocky-and powerfully built and has scant- iron grey  'hair and  steel  blue eyes.  Bishop Rowc .was a clergyman at  *Sault Stc. Marie, Mich., when he was  iconsecratcd Bishop of "Alaska, in  1895. lie reached Alaska two years  'before the rush of prospectors to  the Klondike, and was one of thc  first Americans lo go over Chilkoot  Pass, where a snowslidc killed  ���������.seventy-eight men. He was one of  the rescuing party that helped dig  the bodies out of thc snow. In all  .his years- in Alaska he never had  the  "gold  fever."  - "The results of that memorable  .craze made other work for me," he  >:ud, "and I never had time to get  thc fever. I was al Skagway at thc  ���������time. There was an epidemic of  meningitis, and many who did not  ���������die of that disease succumbed to  ���������shooting affrays. During a period of  two months I conducted'almost daily  thc funeral of some murdered pros-  .pcclor or gambler."  At that time -a gambler called  "Soapy" Smith headed a gang that  |4|u- infested the Klondike and mulcted  &'!f prospectors. The activities of thc  .band grew to be such a menace that  Bishop Rowe .and others organized  a vigilance committee, which was  sent after the gang. Smith was killed  and others were driven out of the  country.  Bishop Rowc said his winter trips  lake liim two thousand miles into  ihe interior. On snowshocs, in company with an Indian guide, he fol-  low-s a dog sled, across the country  where there are no trails, guided  only by a compass through the river  valleys and over snowclad mountains to thc remote camps of Indians  and  lonely prospectors.  His narrowest escape occurred the  winter before last, when he was  ���������caught in a blizzard on the banks of  ���������the Yukon river, with the temperature at 50 degrees below zero.  "We succeeded in making the  Shelter of a mountain side," the  Bishop said, else I would not be here  ���������to tell of it. I unleashed the dogs  ':a'nd- they burrowed into the snow.  An Eskimo dog knows instinctively  what to do under such circumstances  and we did likewise. For three  .days we lay buried in the snow  while the blast' raged overhead.  ��������� "After the fury of the storm had  .abated, we" scrambled out, and uncovered the dogs. They had slept  through it all.* A short distance off  we found a white man,-bundled in  furs, but frozen" to death. There, on  the snowbound wastes, I read his  funeral service and buried him in a  grave of snow, the rainbow's end of  'many another gold seeker." Pushing  ���������on, they ended that trip at Point Barrow, where they met Stefansson's  men.  One fine spring day, on another  trip, Bishop Rowe came upon what  appeared to be a wild man standing  on the banks of a creek.  "We were a hundred miles from  any trail," he said, "and I wondered  what he could be about. Drawing  near, I found him to be only another  prospector. He apologized for having no more than flour and a bit of  tea to offer, upon which he had  existed through the previous winter,  but declared that food was not the  first essential with gold in sight.  "At least twenty-live such fellows  wander out of the interior every  year under the delusion that they  ii.re rich. I have heard them come  jn, poor mental wrecks, shouting that  they were richer than Guggenheim."  Bishop Rowe said three of his women mission workers lost their  minds in the interior camps during  the last year. He attributes such  mental lapses to loneliness.  Provisions for his trips consist of  beans and bacon, and he gets dried  fish from thc Indians, and whale  meat from the Eskimos, all the  roughest kind of food. .

Turner,  in'the Saturday Review, writes:  "I had the advantage of being attached twice for manoeuvres to the  German 14th Army Corps, of which  "Le Moloch allcmand," as the  French call him, commanded the 28tlv  Division. He had had no great re-  of putalion as a leader in the German  army and 1 saw him worsted and out-  gcnerallcd by von Bissing, the smartest soldier I ever saw in Germany,  and by General von Fallois, a particularly cflicient, commander. Hindenburg gave one the idea of a resolute,  pig-headed man, without any surplus  share'of brains. One took him to be  utterly ruthless, 'and his square head  and little eyes showed his Mongol  origin and denoted unmistakably  cunning and cruelty. While his predecessor,' General von Grone, and his  former corps general, von Buelow,  received me with open arms and admitted me freely to all. thc critiques  after each day's manoeuvres, von  Hindenburg only suffered mc becau*e  I was there by command of the "all  highest," and he would not allow me  within thc circles of his officers at  thc critiques. He was cold, but not  actually rude,' but he seemed to'enjoy the insulting boorishncss to  which an underbred Prussian 'junker  .treated mc on every possible occasion. He was an aide-de-camp of the  Grand Duke of Baden, who was the  soul of courtesy, and I am confident  that Hindenburg, who evidently resented my presence on his staff, got  the arrogant junker to 'make things  hot for mc.' I was in no way impressed by Hindcnburg's ability. He  struck me as a typical Hun���������tall,  stout and coarse, and, like most Germans, a huge cater and drinker. I  was told that on one occasion the  officers of his staff were discoursing  on poetry in his presence and'comparing the merits of 'Shakespeare,  Schiller and Goethe. After listening  impatiently for a time the general  could stand it no longer, and thus  admonished them: 'Meine Herren, I  have, never risked making myself  weak by reading poetry, and I  strongly advise you to'follow my example.'" -   -  Birds Still Keep Secret  Aviators  Cannot  Yet  Compete With  Nature's Flyers  Although of recent years aviation  has made tremendous strides, the  feat of present day aviators cannot  be compared -with those of nature's  flyers in speed, endurance, lifting and  sighting power; birds' beat aviators  every time.  A common swallow, for instance,  can travel in the air at the ra>*c of 120  miles an hour.  Thc vulture, when swooping on its  prey, cuts through thc atmosphere  at nearly 150 miles an hour.  Some time ago a swallow flew  from Antwerp to Compeigne, a distance of 140 miles, in 68 minutes, the  flight being timed by observers who  returned the bird's average rate ' of  speed at  128 miles  an hour.  The fastest an aeroplane has ever  travelled is 108 miles an hour, and  this speed was only obtained by  building a", little freak machine* terribly dangerous  to handle.  Then, agairi(> birds fly for 24 hours  at a stretch without descending, even  in "boisterous weather.  After eight or nine hours' continued flying an aviator is wearied both  mentally and bodily, and if he had  strong winds to" fight, he is often in  a state of collapse.  No flyer could carry out long  flights across sea and land Tike cuckoos, for instance, which any naturalist will tell you often start from  English shores and find their way to  Africa.  At a height of 10,000 feet the earth  in detail is most difficult for an aviator to see, and it is only with strong  glasses that he^ can discern even  large buildings and rivers. But, at  high altitudes, hawks and kites can  spy tiny lizards and field mice on the  earth, for their sighting powers are  twenty times stronger than those of  aviators.���������Kansas City Star.  Western Butter  Shipped to Britain  Saskatchewan    Co-operative   Creameries Very Successful  The. co-operative creameries which  the Provincial Department of Agriculture have established at various  parts of the province of Saskatchewan in order to put the dairying  business on a firm basis have had a  very successful season, reports W. A.  Wilson,  the  Dairy Commissioner.  During the season, he states, the  co-operative creameries have had a  total output of 2,500,000 pounds of  butter. Sixty-seven cars of butter  have been shipped 'to points outside  thc province, while the local trade  took care of about four carloads per  month. There, were altogether 9,200  farmers who supplied milk and  cream to thc creameries.  A new venture proved to be a success. This was a trial shipment of  butter to. Great Britain from Alberta,  Manitoba and Saskatchewan, the provinces combining to make a carload  of butter, which went to Manchester,  England. This shipment of butter  was made direct from Regina and  contained butter from Manitoba and  Alberta as well as that furnished by  the creameries of Saskatchewan. Thc  butter was well received in England;  in fact, a demand has been created  and there are great possibilities for a  future market in England.  A Big Grain Elevator  Concrete   Elevator   at Fort   William  With Storage Capacity of  3,500,000 Bushels  One of the greatest of all elevators is the concrete , grain elevator  which has just been completed in  Fort William, Ont. The storage capacity of this concrete elevator will  be 3,500,000 bushels, or about 3,500  carloads, as ordinarily estimated.  The outstanding features of the  concrete elevator are its marine unloading cars, which can empty any  of the largest boats in less than ten  hours. The marine unloading cars  have a capacity of about fifty thousand bushels an hour and are capable  of unloading a big boat in less than  a working day.  It will be possible to load fifty  thousand bushels of grain in freight  cars every hour, which is tremendously fast. Canal boats can be loaded at the fast rate of thirty thousand bushels an hour. Aside . from  the great size and wonderful appliances for handling grain which have  been incorporated in this elevator,  the fact that it is constructed entirely  of concrete reduces the liability of  fire, and with it the cost of insurance.  Dobbin Still on the Job  Where Is Your Hired Girl?  "Canada in Flanders"  by  "Norway has put an embargo on  the .export of raw copper."  "Oh,���������well, Ireland will continue to  3iipply the New York police force."  Obcd Smith, Commissioner of Emigration, has received, by order of  thc Canadian Government, ten thousand copies of Sir* Max Aitken's  book, "Canada in Flanders," for distribution in English schools. Letters  acknowledging the books are most  striking. The head master, St. Thomas, Bolton, for instance, writes:  "Over a hundred of my old boys enlisted in the Canadians." Miss Both-  croyd, of Grimsby, remarked: "My  girls correspond with those of a Canadian school, and love it." Miss  Brown, of Cheltenham, says: "We  have twenty scholars corresponding  regularly with scholars in Canada."  W. J. Walsh, of Ch.eetham Hill, says:  "My eldest son, a sergeant in the 10th  Battalion, fell in the charge in the  wood in April, 1915." David Reekie,  of Bolton, says: "My son was killed  at Yprcs."  "Of accurate knowledge I have none,  But my wife's  charwoman's    sister's  son  Knows a policeman who, on his beat,  Met a housemaid in Downing street  Whose brother says he's got a friend  Who says he knows    when  the war  will end."  (From   an   Address   in    Omaha  Congressman Meeker, of  St. Louis  "I'm not asking you now, 'Where  is your wandering boy tonight?' I'm  asking you where is your hired girl  this minute? You don't know, and  you don't care. The school tea,chers,  the department store girls, the stenographers and all other classes have  privileges this girl lias not. They can  go home from the office, Av^lk-into  the front door of anyone's home, sit  down and play the piano and enjoy a  social evening with the family. But  the hired girl is met at the front  door by the boss of the house,, who  says: "You get around to the back  door where you belong, and stay in  the kitchen and go up the back  stairs".''*'" Then she is given the worst  room in tlie house to sleep in..  "Where, do these. girls find their  companions? When a man comes to  call on one of them she can entertain him in the kitchen. If he doesn't  like to sit on the washtub he can sit  in the sink. If .he doesn't like either,  they can go outside and walk up and  down the sidewalk. If they're tired  of that they can g-o to the dance hall.  There are those three places open to  them. While thc yourtg people have  to sit in the kitchen or go out to the  dance hall, where's the.lady of the  house? She's gone to some reform  meeting.  "I tell you thc treatment youre  giving your hired girl is what's driving girls to ruin, and you have been  taught to think it was the saloons.  Yes, and you women thought you  could save them by marching at thc  head of a prohibition parade."  Motor Industry Has Not Yet Superseded the Horse by a Long  *   Way  Enormous as has been the advance  made by thc motor industry within  recent years, it does not seem to have  made any serious inroads on the popularity of the horse. Dobbin is still  apparently holding his own on the  road, the farm, the park, and the race  course. This latter may be regarded  as bis  peculiar preserve.  Though faced for thc first time  with the rivalry of thc motor' on the-  battlefield, where through centuries  he has borne, uncomplaining and  unrewarded, much of the heat and  the burden of the day, he has even  there where science has gathered all  its resources for a mighty carnival of  destruction, proved once more his in-  dispensability.  Many thousands of horses have  been shipped from Canada and the  United States lo Europe since thc  war began. This has occasioned a  scarcity of animals in many parts  of thc continent, heavy draft .horses  being especially in request. A dispatch . from Chicago'states that the  adaptable Belgian and Pcrcheron  horses are advancing in price. Horses of this class, particularly the lighter types, are fetching big money  just now and bringing handsome profits for thc lucky owners.  Horses produced by a cross between the purcbreds and animals native to this continent are fetching between $500 and $600 for a well  matched pair, while it is not so long  ago that such a team could be purchased ' for from $200 to $300. So  that these useful animals have more  than doubled in average value.  All this conies as very'good news  for the people of this city, which is  the centre of one of the greatest  horse producing districts in North  America. Sires of the finest stock  are plenty in Alberta, and their progeny arc likely to help swell the  bank accounts of local farmers and  ranchers, besides adding to, the prosperity of the province generally.  Old Dobbin has been going for a  long lime, according to the wise one,  but "he ain't went yet."���������From the  Calgary Herald.  Dreaded Cargoes  Sailors Hate Sugar and Coffee Worse  Than Dynamite  At first sight it would seem that  dynamite was a cargo to be carefully  avoided. But from a sailor's point of  view there are- far more dangerous  loads. He dreads, for instance, a cargo of sugar. Put hundreds of tons of  cane sugar in casks in the hold of a  vessel and let the ship steam through  a belt of hot wcalher. Thc odor is  sickening. The sailors cannot gel the  sweet taste out of their mouths.  They crave vinegar or lemon-juice ���������  anything sour. They lose their apRC-  tites and are always glad when a voyage on which the cargo was sugar is  over.  Coffee is as disagreeable as sugar,  in addition to being very dangerous.  Cotton is a really dangerous cargo.  If a little oil happens to touch raw  cotton the result is what is called  spontaneous combustion. A single  bale of cotton saturated with s-uch an  oil as boiled linseed, and lying at the  bottom of a hold, can be compared  only to a slow match attached to a;  bomb.  Acids and other chemicals form  dangerous cargoes. Carbide of calcium, for instance, is more dangerous  than dynamite. Acetylene gas is made  from this chemical and the gas is  constantly given off if the product is  exposed to thc air.  Shipmasters dislike carrying drums  of acid where they cannot be reached  readily. A Chilean ship put in at thc  Falkland Islands leaking badly. Her  cargo was made up of drums of acid  and chalk. Thc acid had leaked from  thc drums and mixed with the chalk,  forming carbonic acid gas in the  hold. This gas is deadly and thc crcw  could not make repairs. Meantime  thc acid had gathered at the bottom  of the hold and eaten away the iron  frames of the ship.���������Tit-Bits.  Boy |Scout Notes  World-Wide Work in Fostering Better Understanding Between  All Countries  The Headquarters Gazette, thc official organ of the Boy Scout Move;  men I in England, tells how Boy  Scouls may render a distinct service,  not only in defeating the enemy, but  in helping Great Britain to overcome  certain material weaknesses, and in  fostering a better mutual understanding between all countries.  After referring to the facl that the"-  war has awakened England lo a realization that she must organize her  trade to meet every demand from the  different corners of the earth if she  wishes to be on a level footing with  Germany, the writer says: "Our business in the Scouts, then, is to awaken  thc rising generation to their future  responsibilities, to keep them out of  the groove which they had fallen into and lo encourage among them the  development of individual inventiveness, initiative, technical .study and  skill, honesty in dealing, knowledge  of foreign languages and foreign  lands, tact, foresight, and physical  health to give the requisite energy  and endurance, "not merely to defeat  our foes, but to improve the standard of our output of peaceful industry."  Then calling attention to the immediate necessity of developing and  holding thc goodwill and friendship  of all neutral nations, the writer  again finds work for Boy Scouts:  "Wc have brother Scouts in all those  countries," he says, "the'rulers, the  thinkers and workers of thc near future. Let us link ourselves all the  closer with them. We have a big  possibility in our hands if we can  enthuse our'boys to keep up a correspondence as brother Scouts with  those of foreign countries, in order  to bring about a better mutual understanding by telling them of our high  aim iu "the" war; of the brave doings  of our men; and of what they are  suffering to uphold thc ideal of honor  and  justice   for  olhcr   nations.  In a letter to- the Manchester  Guardian, His Lordship Bishop Well-  don, Dean of the Anglican Church m  Manchester, England, tells why thc  Boy Scout movement should be supported. "The Bov Scout movement,"  he savs, "commends itself to mc  alike on physical, moral and national  grounds.

In the face  of.-thc fact that the United States  will use approximately half of the  output, while Great Britain is in practical control of the entire world's  supply, a peculiar situation is presented. Thc explanation given in respect to thc control of the supply is  that the present producing plantations were established by Great Britain some years ago. Through the  financing and under the direction of  the British Government, rubber plantations are now operated in Ceylon,  Sumatra, the Malay States and Java.  As a result of this control, the British Government has been able to  gradually lower the. price of crude  rubber from thc former price of $3  a pound, which obtained in 1910, to  67 cents a pound at the present  time. Just previous to the outbreak  of the war the price paid for crude  rubber_was $1.25 per pound, so it will  be noticed that despite war conditions, when thc prices of all commodities _ have been soaring upwards,  the price of crude rubber has been  reduced.  It naturally follows that rubber is  now rapidly superseding leather in  every instance possible. Thc cost of  leather is soaring constantly, and  leather footwear is reaching prohibitive prices. Rubber footwear will,  according to indications, be extensively worn this winter. It will no  doubt prove a real economy to protect v expensive leather shoes with  rubbers and with rubber overshoes.

The war is using up enormous quantities, both" of  leather and rubber. At the same time it is seriously  restricting the output of the former, much of which  came from Russia-���������while rubber production keeps  pace with the demand. From the great plantations  now reaching maturity in Britain's tropical Dominions  will come this year 150,000 tons of raw rubber���������75%)  of the world's production, and an increase of oyer;  40,000 tons over last year.  Thus, thanks to the British" Government's 'foresight;  in encouraging these plantations, the Allied armies  .have been abundantly supplied with all the' rubber  products they need���������Germany and her allies have been  cut off���������and the price to the world at large has actually  been reduced. Meanwhile leather has been getting  scarcer and more expensive���������80%_ higher than in 1914 .  ������������������and the end is not yet.  At_ normal prices a pair of good shoes cost abou���������  'four times as much as a pair of /libbers���������and would  last twice as long if rubbers or overshoes were worn  to protect them. Or a pair of heavy rubbers for the  farm cost much less than heavy shoes* and would stand  much more wear in bad weather. So even before the  war rubbers were a mighty good investment, to say  nothing of their prevention of wet feet, colds and  doctors' bills.  Now, when leather costs so" much more In proportion",  the saving from wearing rubber footwear is so outstanding*  that no one who believes in thrift will think of doing without  rubbers, overshoes, rubber boots, or whatever kind of rubber  footwear best suits his needs. Nor will ho'who is anxious to  help win the war, for by .wearing-, rubber he conserves, the  ���������leather that is so scarce, yet bo absolutely necessary to the-  jsoldfers.

They can produce 10  shells in the time that ic takes lo  make one by, the usual process. They  arc capable of turning out a shell  from a solid piece of steel finished  ready for thc load in three minutes.

In some quarters ho is  likened to a demigod, "and   his pronunciamento  declared to be a 'later day declaration   of   independence;    in  others he  is charged  with assuming an attitude of a dictator, \vith the object of entangling this country  in unholy alliances; with butting in where  his advice has not been sought,  with an effort to  take  a hand  in changing the map of Europe.  Anyhow,  the speech, like all of  the president's state papeis, and  all  of "his  literary efforts, is a  strong expression of individual  views couched in finished, faultless language, and  will  set tho  tongues and pens of two hemispheres wagging and scratching.  ���������Oroville Weekly Gcizette.  scarlet fever, otc Thoy went  through all that in their childhood. iVow adults catch about  everything that conies along  A prospector in the Slocan  went to tt doctor with the itch  and didn't know what the  trouble was. lie had traded  shirts with a hobo.

Breaking over a custom that  has been honored by a long line  of   presidents   for   a   century,  wherein   they   refrained  from  giving even  an excuse for the  impression  that the  executive  could or would in any way attempt to influence  the legislative functions of congress, President Wilson  appeared in  person before the   United  States  senate Monday and read a carefully prepared   speech   setting  forth his views and  recommendations as to the attitude and  part this country  should  take  to establish a world  peace, and  insure the  maintenance of that  peace   when   once   established.

Were  his appeal made to governments  founded on the same system as  that of the United States, his  declaration that "no peace  can  last, which does  not recognize  and accept the principle that  governments   derive all    their I  just powers from  the consent J  of the governed,"  might carry  some weight   and  meaning  to  the people now engaged m war,  YOU CAN SMILE  if .you have your teeth attended  to by, us and the smile with  other wiles will come mighty  near catching even Cupid himself.   .
