If I had my choice  I should take Saloniea, if only  for a change of scenery.    Hoping you will  thank  the people-  bf Hedley  for me.   With best  regards to all."  Pte. Neil McLeod has-written  a very interesting letter to the  secretary of the Patriotic Funds  committee, in which he gives  some     ydry    interesting - side  the purfins to^preypnt the boys  getting^w^ter.   He"\-,tells  of a  Belgion'^yojpfyan who was doing  a   thriving r^stimpoiit business  until the  boyTlound   that the  ���������coffee water was from  a pond  in   which   they   washed   their  feet, and the eggs were boiled,  without washing, in the coffee.  Although   the   eggs   were   ail  right,'the consumption of coffee  diminished    somewhat.       Pte.-  McLeod  has  been -in   hospital  some "time'as a result of  the  gruelling march  from Yprcs to  the Somne.        /        '"     ,    -    "  This week  the ��������� Hedley post-  office received a quarter of a  ton   of  T.   Eaton   Catalogues.  Have those people who receive  from $3 to $20, a day ever considered how, much T. Eaton has  conti'ibuted towards developing -  the mines of the province or to  their earning<power? Have they  ever considered  that they are  buyng in a cheap labor market while receiving the highest -  wages   paid on,the continent? '  In these diiys when there is so  much talk* of loyalty to the flag  and to the empire there should  also   be loyalty   to the   home  community,   The departmental ,"  stores do not help in developing the mining industry, therefore *are not entitled to any of  the  profits from it.' The  high .  price of necessaries are due to  ���������the_ people   patronizing   large  firms,with their cash and doing  their credit business at home.  Today, m Canada,  the control ���������;  of all family  necessities are in -'  the hands of less than  twenty-  manufacturing combines,  who  own the legislative  bodies and  rob the people at will. Give the  local store your cash and the  results will  probably" be as sat-_  isfactory as your dealings _with  the   departmental   stores,   but  don't-talk, loyalty to "the empire  until you'first  become-loyal to  the community in   which you -  earn your living.   Quit working -  for   "Uncle   Tim's"   outfit   and  build up and developo tho homo  town.  lights on Belgium, Yprcs and  the Somne. He says many of  the Belgians were not particu  larly friendly towards the Canadians. In some instances  they lemoved the handles from  War Savings Certificates.  Tho now War Savings Certiti-  catcs which have been created  by the government toencourage  thrift and economy "and to give^  everyone an opportunity to assist   in  financing our war expenditure,  are now  on sale at  every   bank   and   money  order  postoflice in   Canada.    The $25  certifice ������oll-.   for $21.50, the $50  for $43, and tho $100 for $86.  _ As   an investment these cer  tificates offer  many  attractive  features���������chief of which are the  absolute  security  ahd  the  excellent   interest    return.      For  every $21.50 lent to the government now, $25 will be returned  at the end of three years.  There are two other features  which are especially interesting  to small investors. First, the  certificates may be surrendered  at any time, if the buyer should  need his'money; and, second,  each certificate is registered at  Ottawa in the buyer's'"mime  and, if lost or stolen, is therefore valueless to anyone else.  But while they  are excellent  from an investment standpoint,  tiie certificates   should   appeal.,  strongly  to  Canadians because  they  offer to  those who must  serve at home a splendid opportunity  foi-   a   most important  patriotic   service.    The   person  who honestly  saves  to  the extent of his  ability  and  places  his" sayings'.at the  disposal of  the government.by purchasing  these certificates, may feel that  he is  having a direct share in  feeding, equipping,  and  muni- -  tioning our Canadian soldiers,  who are. so nobly doing their  part in the fighting line.

Income Said to Be a Million cv More  Dollars a Day  Not Rockefeller. Rothschild., M-"organ nor Krupp. The richest man iu  the world is no mere'multi-millionaire, whose wealth can be estimated  by income tax experts. He is the  C:-.ar of Russia, and no man living  knows his wealth. His income is said  to be a million or so dollars a day,  which enables one to estimate aough-  1/ something like ten to thirty billions as the sum of his possessions,  and  this is largely guesswork.

He receives from the  state, or government, a salary of 10  million dollars a year.  The Czar pays more than his own  expenses. He maintains his palaces  and royal residences, a hundred or  so, and takes care of the cost of the  households of all the royal personages of the nation.

"  The war is using-tip leather much-faster than  it is being- produced. The reserve,, particularly of  high-grade leather, is steadily diminishing-. If the  soldiers are to have plenty for shoes and'equipment.,  and if the Government is to.be able to procure it at  prices within reason, civilians-must economize on it  to the limit.  This is the reason well-worn slioes are no loug'cr  a discredit, but an honor���������an evidence that the wcaVcr  puts, patriotism before pride, thrift before vanity.  Fortunately the prevailing* moderate prices of  rubbers and overshoes make this practicable. In  most cases they cost little more than before the war,  and a very small expenditure for either will protect  the old shoes perfectly through the winter, keep the  feet dry and comfortable, and guard the wearer's  health. 'Many are also following the sensible-course  of wearing rubber boots or "rubbers and socks" for  working around the stables, in the woods, or in -.the  fields during the cold; wet weather. Not the least of  their advantages is their cleanliness around the house.  ,. Wearing>ubbers or overshoes is one of the rare  cases where virtue brings its own reward, for in  addition to the very considerable money saving, what  is there that affords such, solid comfort as a well-  worn pair of shoes?  Saving   Shoe-Leather   Is   a   Public  Service as WelL as a Private Economy  The Neutrality ~l  Of Scandinavia  Why Norway, Sweden and_.Denmark  Keep Out of-the War .  f:i considering a chance ot Norway  being drawn into war a belligerent  against Germany, some facts appro-  pos of the situation affecting the  situation of the three countries that  compose ihe Scandinavian pact  should' be borne in mind. All three  countries have agreed- lo maintain  their neutralities. All tifpee. nations  are reaping enormous fortunes out of  the war, especially Norway. It is almost , correct to say tortures arc  made over night. The .;old-lu^t is  shown in the crowded Stock Exchange of Christiania every day.

The  sitiru: applies iiwii. lesser degree lo  j Sweden, although her main source of  wealth is iu supplying Germany, with  foodstuffs, iu return for which she is  getting German coal, England having stopped her supplies. Denmark  is making fabulous* sums iu her general trading with Germany. Sweden's  sympathies arc; mainly with Germany  owing to her traditional hatred of  Russia.

Though.the'vast Arsenal of" Woolwich is at our, ow-n doors, few of us  who sleep in'London have any real  sense of its colossal presence, its immense, significance, . the tremendous  . force -it stands foi\-   Jts origin dates  '_baclc lo   other,wars,  but  when     the  , picscnl war began its' workers were  .only 14,000 in all,  without'a  woman  ,������of their number. Now there are" 17,-  000 -wbmenaand 50,000 men.  -/ That .is  not   all..   Notwithstanding  "its fierce reality Woolwich is a���������symbol   rather   than 'a   geographical   ex*;-  , pression: ���������,-To'that    centre   on-���������the  ���������'Thames   three   and   a   half   miles   by  .two and a half,  with  its numberless  .workshops, its endless avenues and  "it.s"'liuiidred'aiid  twenty miles  of in-  . 'tcrnal railway, there radiate the activities of scores of associate, factories i;ound about* so that 30,000 workers -more, chiefly women' (97;00Q in-  all), arc feeding this -almost fathomless reservoir. Woolwich is a great  mechanical octopus with arms that  reach, over, across  and around Lon-  '   don and  the country about it.  Before going into the women's  workshops you arc taken (.o the  forges of the .men, for- it .is impossible to come to Woolwich without  seeing the awful'basilicas  of  bridled  "force in which the mammoth .guns  are created. Here is one-of them, a  vast place, as big as Albert Hall. A  colossal Nasmyth hammer, with-* a  blow^ of -10 tons, ,is pounding on a  thick block of white-hot steel. First  a   gentle   tap  to   make  sure -of  posi-  ��������� tion and then^ a thunderous thud that  makes the earth quake beneath your  'feel'.  ��������� A few moments later you are in  another vast forge, but here there is  nearly no noise and hardly any motion. A gigantic press of -1,000 tons  power is drilling a hole through another enormous block of i\hit"-hoS  metal. The great thing occms almo=t  as huge as the facade of St. Mark's  *������il Venice, and not unlike it in form,  .- although stark and black. ' Under its  open arch, without a sound or the  appearance'' otVa hand to guide them,  and with a motion that is almost  ghostlike, the great anvils with their  burning  freight   glide   into   position.  A score of stalwart men, stripped  tb the waist, stand round 'with long  'iron rods and pinchers. They push a  thick black ring of apparently, cold  metal on the top, of the white-hot  block. One man stands under a* huge  clock with *his hand on a lever. No  one speaks. There is .scarcely a  iiotiiid.    Presently there comes slowly  ���������'down,  as   from   tho  keystone   of   the  .monster machine, a shining column  ef steel. Il reaches the, black ring,  presses down on it, descends without  'a pau(.c to the white-hot block, rests  on top of it for' a moment, *-*Ji"fere is a  thud as of something falling- into a  pit beneath , and then the _ column  rises,  the  arch  is   reopened,'and the  ��������� ring has disappeared, having- passed  through the metal and dropped to the  ground belovv.     The  souse  of silent,  '. irrestible, oceanic, almost motionless  power has left you breathless. . . .  -But perhaps the most awesome ol  all sights in Woolwich is that of. the  big furnace house for manufacturing  the steel. I think [ have witnessed  in  various  parts  of  the  world  many  " scenes of Nature iu her wrath ���������  scenes':.of -earthquake, eruption, tidal  wayc, geyser and boilmg: rive.r���������but J.  doubt if .[.have ever bcien more awed,  . more moved,, and in a sense more terrified,,than by the spectacle here presented of the physical forces of. Nature chained and harnessed to the  work oi- men.    ... ���������;'  But .Woolwich has a world* of operations that arc entirely suitable for  women,  and in  a-few   minutes  more  we are in  the midst of them.  There'  is   a   new   shop   worked   entireb/' by  . women, having been built for "thorn  since the beginning of the war. 'The  vast place covers an area which is apparently as great as that of'Trafalgar  Square. Two thousand women are  here, and there is room for three-  thousand in all.. .Innumerable lathes,  generally of small size, cover the cemented floor, with pulleys and wheels  spinning in the air above them. It  is a dense forest of' machinery, pulsing and throbbing  and whirring and  ���������.tossing as from some unseen storm.  There is at first something so incongruous in the spectacle of women working masses of powerful ma.-  c'hincry (or, indeed, any machinery  more formidable than a sewing machine.) that for a moment, as you  stand at the entrance, the sight is  scarcely believable. But you go iu  and move round, and after a while  tile astonishing fact seems perfectly  natural. Although most: of the machines in this shop are small, some  arc large, and a few alarming. Here  is a slip of a girl working one of the  latter kind, a huge thing that has two  large wheels like mill-wheels revolving at. either side of her, and though  she looks like a-child in the jaws of  some great black monster she docs  not seem to be the least afraid. Here  is another young girl who is feeding  a round disc with bits 'of metal that  look like discolored farthings, and as-  hei���������own- particular Caliban eats them  up it utters from its interior a hoarse  grunt thai hits you like u ..blow on  the brain, yet she does not seem to  hear.,"   ' _   '.,        '    '  But mo'sl 'of the work done by the  women looks simple enough, and  seems perfectly natural <lo their sex,  although it has always -hitherto been  done by men' One woman is turning  base plate's for shells on "a.-turret  lathe. Another is ^"cutting copper  bands for. shells from ���������tubes. Another  is pressing the copper bands into  their places. Yetvanolher 'is riveting  brass plugs on to high explosive shell  bodies. Some are drilling^ the holes  through the six-inch shells. Others  arc rough-turning the shell surfaces:  and yet others are gauging and part-  ing-ofl the bodies of the huge eight-  inch high explosives. Many are making shell fuses, a task in which wo-^  men have become amazingly proficient, and many more arc at work at  the'inspection board, whore, being  trained lo the use of one gauge only,  they have developed an efficiency to  which men have never attained.

One is the  firm resolve of the allied powers that  will malec its renewal impossible,  that will -assure the peace of Europe  for a century. When they talk o^  "crushing'Germany," the meaning is  that the military poucr and the mili-:  taiy ideals, the . Imperial arrogance  of Germany, must be destroyed. In  Germany the chief motive for continuing the struggle is the despciatc  need of the militarists and Imperialists jcusavc themselves, ihe dread of  what they know will happen to them  when the war ends in their defeat.  It is an interest separate and distinct  from ihe interests of the German'  people.

There   should  be!  definite   periods   during  the year  for|  marketing cattle, so that the farmers  could   raise   cattle   to   suit   that  time.  Statistics  should  be  neutral  and  nnt  biased   for  commercial  reasons.     In-1  formation   and   statistics   should   also,  be   supplied   regarding   the   condition  in   competitive   cattle     raising   countries, such  as  the Argentine and the  United   States.

Was Disturbed at Breakfast By Rude  British Tommies  One German geneial in the midst  of war-and frequent bombardments  was able lo live amid peace and  plenty in a capacious cellar, with  beer and much Gernitiii food, according to~the story told by E. dc Feu-  quieres, in the Petit Parisicn.  ��������� The discovery of the general's subterranean quarters in Beaumont,  where he breakfasted every morning  in pajamas, caused'"much merriment  among the British soldiers. The commander was thenceforth nicknamed  '.(General von Pajamas."'  The place-of"honoi on the walls of  the dining-room was given to n picture of the Kaiser, beneath \\ hirh  was a- keg of Muencliner brew, flanked on"each side by champagne magnums improvised with cartridges of  a "155"shell. Here the doughty general lived in fine style, quaffing the  celebrated beer and dining on the  food, he had in a welt stocked larder.  The capture of BoamnbiH revealed  all  this.  The. General was iu this 'simple  garb and his accustomed place when  the shock of the British ;hcll rain  began. Vic had already devoured  three, fried eggs and was contemplating a slice of ham. Re. bellowed a  command tothis orderly, an old Silc-  sian   peasant. r  "What beasts those English arc!"  he shouted. "Go see if they are not  going to let me finit.Ii my breakfast  in peace!"' He had drawn a g!a.->s of  beer when a sergeant uished in unannounced.  /'The English arc masters of the  trenches! The village is about lo be  taken!" h.e shouted with a perfunctory salute.  The general swore like, the Flanders veteran he was, and spilled the  beer on his.,pyjamas.

While his pyjamas flapped in the  lorJcn air and his slippered Heels beat  a devil's tattoo on. the flank of the  amazed donkey, whose nosebag, rpill-  ing grain at every jump, lo/it an aii  of hilarity to the* scene, the general  out-Gilpined John himself; and eventually arrived safe and sore behind  his own lines.

Canadians Achieve  Imperishable Glory  Pla>  Part .in War Which  Will For  Ever Distinguish" Them  Lord Shauglmessy, President of  the Canadian Pacific Railroid; on his  recent return from England, and discussing the war, said: "Britain's'forces 'are burning fiercely, creating  steel chains by which her integral  parts will be bound together as never before. It has been her boast for  years that only a 'silken cord' connected the mother country with her  overseas -Dominions and' colonies.  That time is, past. The war has demonstrated that unity, of effort and  direction must continue.  "Canada has. assumed a heavy portion of the burden of tiie, war, far  greater than -anyone anticipated. Canadians have stood in critical positions  and have held them. They have done  men's work, fulfilling^ the terms of  the partnership thai exists*"betw;een  the various members of the Empire.  Canadians have won a name .which  will forever distinguish them.' Never  will they be confused with other nationalities on this continent. Canada*  will, 'in fact, be a senior partner in  the British Empire, bearing an equal  share of the burdens, reaping an  equal proportionate share of the profits and filling a prominent seat at  the Council 'lable.-  "Lloyd George's elevation to the  Premiership undoubtedly is the outcome of a de������ire on the part of the  .mere aggressive parly in ihe Ifotisc  of Commons to have a Government  that will prosecute the war with more  vigor. The change merely indicates  that the people of Great Britain, intend to utilize every resource and  every force at their command to insure victory.  "Britain wants peace just as soon  as the demands made by her aud  hor allies" are won from Geimany.  Anything leas is not victory.^  "The. mastetful way in which Britain is financing the war is no less impressive than the achievements at the  front. Her wealth and resources arc  almost limitless and are being freely  and gladly pledged.  "This war is developing 'In. individual. Every man,-woman and child  must do a share.

Russia will save Rumania from the  Teutonic menace, and next spring  will have the strongest army she has  had since the war began, Gen.

Gen.-^ Br'ussiloff commands all the Russjan .armies that-  made the great sweep into Gaiicia  in the'summcr/  "I speak with authority "when I  say that from_ the common soldier  up, the united sentiment of Russia is  that Rumania should be protected,  helped and, supported in ev;cry possible way," said the Russian commander.  "The" Rumanians must feel faith'in  the. great heart of the Russian people," General Brussiloff continued. '  "They must know that in the efforts  we are making to save them this sentiment is the dominant factor, not  morely a question of our own self-  interest to protect our flank' left.  - "Rumania is now feeling for the  first time the pressure of war and  the bitterness of 'defeat, but Rumania  must realize that defeats are but in-'  cidents of a greater campaign. ' Behind her stands great Russia, who  will see that her brave little ally who  came into the war for a just'cause  does not ultimately suffer for daring  to espouse the cause for which wc  are all  fighting.      -   . ,  - "Personally, never since- thp beginning have I believed that the enemy had a chance of winning. While  they are able to continue successful  offensives it is difficult for them to  realize that they are not approaching  a successful peace.  "This summer's operations mark,  a definite period of defeat.' That period dates from tho. time when the  Allies, co-ordinating their programmes, seized 'from the enemy the capacity for'continuing the offensives  and dictating their strategy to us.  "From tho beginning of the opera-  lions this summer on the Russian  southwestern front the enemy, has  lost control of the situation. I:i  spite of his superhuman efforts lo  regain the- initiative, he has utterly  failed to do so. Again and again  on this front the enemy's design to  block our plans and throw us back  on the defensive has been ruined by  the valor and fortitude of our heroic  troops.  "Simultaneously our brave allies  on the west were'beginning a-summer's campaign which must by now  have demonstrated to the Geiman  high command that with all its material it can construct no defensive  works that the British and French  cannot surely, if slowly, destroy.  Italy,  too,  has   had  success"**":.  "Tf there rcinpin any Germans who  are still hopeful of their cause,' let  them realize that today, when the  Central Ppwers already have lost the"*  initiative and are finding difficulty in  refilling their ranks, Russia has not  yet reached the zenith of hcrjpower,  "Surely no intelligent German can  expect victory. It is simply a question of how long they are willing to  continue tho war, of which the end  is  absolutely foreshadowed today.  "Russia's full power will only be  approached next year, when sve shall  have the largest and best army since  the beginning of the war.

The simple explanation seems  lo be that munition workers and soldiers on the march and in the  trenches wanted something to chew,  and gum, being a more or less inoc-  uous commercial commodity, has  leapt    into an immense    popularity  e  Germany Deceived  As to Zeppelins  They Still Believe Dirigibles Arc Doing Untold Damage in All Parts  of England  The Buffalo Express, in an- editor  _' '���������" "��������� "' '  Why Soldiers Get Grey Hairs j Old Trapper Trick  particularly injurious vice, but it certainly is not a pretty habit.

With the aid of.trustworthy    beacons  and    wireless  telegraphy,    freight  carriers    of  special  build     and  equipment     ought   to   be  able to make thc passage later than  an ordinary vessel can do.

'The reason may be that the resources of human language have been  exhausted-"' in condemning German  conduct in Belgium. Thc murders  and worse/ outrages committed in  1914 shocked the world.

Yet the deportation of  the Belgians is an act, if it stood by  itself, would have made the civilized  world stand aghast. It is described  by thc military- expert of I lie New-  York ..Times as^an act which thc  world has never seen paralleled since  thc daw n of civilization,"- which savors of the barbarism of the Germanic  tribes-which flooded North Northeastern Europe in the third century."  .

The world already realizes the horrors of war, and would willingly consider "any plan for preventing them.  But Germany continues so to behave  as to close the door to any means of  prevention except the crushing defeat of Germany. It is impossible to  believe that those who arc making  Belgium a hell-on earth' for peaceful  citizens arc sincere when they express a desire for a future of peace  in which humanity shall reign.

Is it any, wonder that" wc arc called  a wasteful nation when we allow fifty  million dollars'^ worth of valuable  property to depreciate in the most rapid manner? Do you have a share  in this enormous waste? If so, why?  Is. it because, it is more economical  to buy machinery than to "take care  of it?  -The extraordinary' "conditions  which prevail at present, and which  will continue to prevail for at least a  few years, are bound to- exert an influence upon the supply and ,prob--  ably upon thc price of farm machinery. Metal is used extensively in the  construction of thc vast majority oi  modern farm implements and machines. Thc various metals' are also in  great demand by the nations at war,  and as a'result they have not only  advanced4 greatly in price but there  is also considerable difficulty in obtaining an ample supply of that commodity. It is entirely possible that  conditions may develop which will  make it impossible to.promptly and  completely supply the demand foi  farm machinery.     r -   -   ,     . , .  The unusual conditions make" it'of  more"- than .ordinary importance that "  the machines and implements be so  cared for that-another season of service may be obtained from them if  necessary. As a matter of fact, the  life of thc average farm implement is  only about half as long as it' should  be and the reason they arc so short  lived is that they are allowed to deteriorate much more during thc sea-  3011 when thej' are not in use than  they do while at work. Rusted metals, rotted wood, the neglect of complicated and delicate parts, are the  principal factors in putting mjchincs  out of commission.  The right time to put a machine  away is just. as. soon as its work is  completed, but if you failed to do >t  then, it will pay to make a round-up  of the farm and bring in all the forsaken machines. The hay loader that  stands where it finished loading the.  last load of hay; thc corn planter  that you had to move out of your  way when you cut or husked "the  corn; the binder under the tree; all  of the various tools and machines,  which togelheivamounl to an investment that it is wasteful to not look  after.  A shed that will protect them from  the weather can be erected at small  expense. Even if the cost of a shed  made of lumber, or other ordinary  building material, seems too great, a  shed can be made with a few poles  for a frame and straw for roof and  sides,  If "the "machine'or implement-is already rusted, it will pay to remove  the rust, and oil .or grease thc metal'*  'parts to.-keep rust from eating into  them. A coat of paint will preserve  the wooden parts. It requires no  more time to do these things at the  time the machines are put away than  il does when they arc wanted for  work. The sum total of profanity  would be considerably reduced if every man could hitch on to an implement that had been protected against  rust and not have to fuss with rusted  gears or shovels that will not scour  when lie gels it out in a busy season.  ���������Successful Farming.

He still employed Mabin as his  secretary, and thc plcasantest hours  of her day were those she spent, each  afternoon, in the big librarj-', with  Julius pla3-ing on thc hearthrug while  she helped Lord Moorhampton with  his work on thc family memorials  to  th  other    end,  which was close  back staircase. *  There was a glass panel in the upper part of the door, through which,  however, it was too dark outside to  see anything o'f thc garden beyond.  There was, however, plcnl3- of light  in thc passage itself, and Mabin,  h'-aribroken and miserable, was making her wa3', slowly, wiping away the  Icars which had begun lo flow from  her c3-es, when suddenly she stopped  short, her steps arrested by a sight  which nhnle the blood freeze in hor  veins.  On the other side of the panel,  close to thc glass, distinct and recognizable in ihe electric light which  shone from behind her, Mabin saw  a man's face���������thin, white, haggaid���������-  a beardless face;-with fixed and star-  in.  eyes.  With a cry she sprang forward, uttering hoarsely thc  word������������������  "Cipriani"   '  But    before    she could reach     ihe  door  ihe face  had   disappeared.

The clerk  declares that the injured man presently got up and went out, declaring  that he was all right. But we can  ifind no trace of him whatever."  [  "But  you   do  believe he  was  vour  sou?"'  Lord Moorhampton hesitated. It  was plain, from his exceeding vagueness, that he did not want- to be  pressed into any corner where action  was necessary, action which would  cause scandal. It seemed to Mabin  that he would rather accept the disappearance of his son without explanation, than quarrel with his wife  by-accusing her brother of a* hand in  the mysterious affair.  It was in vain that she urged him  lo insist upon clearer information  about this indefinitely named "man  from  the north of England.",  Lord Moorhampton deprecated  any "hasty action," as he cailed it,  and was evidently dcsir&us bf nothing so much as of preserving the  peace of his household, even 'at thc  risk of sonic obvious suspicions being entertained by everybody 'who  knew anything about the nn-stcrious  affair of Ciprian's return and disappearance.  Alabin was shocked by his timidity,  and disgusted by his apparent readiness to believe anything rather than  bring discomfort -, upon himself. It  seemed to her that it augured ill for-  the safety of poor little Julius that  his grandfather, fond of him as he'  already was, should so calmlv acquiesce in the mysterious passing out of  existence of his own son.  She controlled her feelings by an  effort, tried to do her work.as usual,  and managed to maintain outward  composure.  But when she was released, and  was able to leave the librarv, where |  Julius was still playing- with the tiger's head, she felt unable to face the  ordeal of passing through the great  hall, where she was almost sure lo  meet Joe Wright or Captain Dal-  niaine, both of whom were still staying at. thc house, and. who spent  most of their afternoons lounging  round the fire there.  So she decided-to slip out by the  garden door at the end of thc passage, to go round thc house at the  back, and re-enter it by a door at the  house  and  improving "it  along did not deter him.    tic sought  a  place where  he could use all    Iii.-  of  the   clerk,   whose  name   is" Oakcs^^T,11 t0,Sel ������" ^ Sti ou ai oncc  to the effect that such a man did "o   ~Vld h������ als������   was fwif ���������    .  n,���������.._ ...  .i._   -1-^--.  .,...."       nl ������������       Ihe  economy    of    farming    Is   so!  c-loscly  iii-Terwovcn^with  the '1 crson-  alifyof the farmer'"! hat each case is  a different case.

For   two  years and   a  half,  War, red rnd ruinous, has raged  through the world, and still no  decision     has     been    reached.  There  is reason   to   hope  that  before 1917 closes  the  struggle  for liberty will   have been won,  or greatly advanced.   Amid the  varying phases of this titanic  conflict   the   fact   stands   out  more clearly than ever that agriculture is of supreme importance.    Extraordinary measures  are being taken  by  the  allied  countries   to increase and  encourage production.    It is earnestly hoped that  every farmer  in Canada will strive to increase  the food supply of the empire  -A still powerful and  unscrupulous  enemy  openly   avows  its  intention  to  try  and   sink  all  ships carrying supplies to England  during   tho  coming year.  In the tremendous strain yet to  come, a vital  factor will'be an  ample   and   unfailing   flow   of  food   to England and   France.  No matter what difficulties may  face  us  the supremo  duty      every inaii on the land is to use  every thought and every energy  in the direction of producing  moro, and still more.���������January  Agricultural Gazette.

His  company was  making   an   attack to capture a German position.    All the officers were disabled   and  he   took  command  and carried  the   men  through  to  victory  with   a loss  of less  men  than  any  company   that  took part in   that  engagement.
