As a rule now when  tho allies start an advance the  Germans do what they can   to  stop  them   with  artillery, machine gun and rifle fire,  and of  courso a great many on our side  get knocked out, but  when the  ones that are lucky enough to  get to the enemy's trench reach  it the  Germans  are nearly always ready  to  throw  up their  hands.  You have, no  doubt, seen the  papers about  tho food crisis in  Britain.    Well, if you  were to  see the  butcher  shops, grocery  stores, confectionery shops, etc.,  you would not  think there was  a   shortage   of food   of any description.    Potatoes and tipples  are   scarce   and   ilour  is dear.  This, of cour.se, is partly on account of  the  prices the wheat  growers are getting-in  Canada  aud   other  places.    There   are  Jonathan  apples   in   the   fruit  stores here that  came from the  Yakama   valley,   but  they sell  for about    50    centt.   a   dozen.

The scheme is for a  number of men   to   invest $5 or  $10 monthly, bond   a claim and  put ruou to work developing it.  All are contributors or workers.

It is tlie indefatigable fanner's wife that makes ihe  farm home; altogether too often she  makes it'a real home in spite of her  husband rather than as a result of his  co-operation with her. He, to his  shame be it, said, too often has hy far  a, greater appreciation for hog's,  cattle, grain'and hay and their propcr  housing.and care than thc equipment  and environments that make practicable the proper rearing of his own  children.

This is what has happened in Iowa,  where  the road drag has been used  so thoughtlessly that the surfaces of  some roads have been dragged to a  dangerous peak.    The  centre of the  road has been built up too high for  safety or comfort.   A high crown and  steep   sides  create  av double   danger.  It is a case of zeal without judgment.  The  misuse   of   the   drag   cannot   be  held against that valuable implement  of ..surface preservation by its systematic employment.    The  Iowa     State  Highway  .Commission   disclaims   responsibility, as it is without authority  in such local administration.    It suggests  complaints    from travellers' to  the dragger or the road superintendent-, tire count}' engineer or" supervisor.   Of course the water will run off  the more readily the steeper the side's  of the road, but so will vehicles.   Thc  ditch is  the place for the water, but  not the wagons or cars.    It is easy  to get the crown too high, just as it-  is bad to get it too low.

Mr. Lloyd George's Verdun Trees  Thc story about Mr. Lloyd George  picking up chestnuts when he was at  Verdun, and putting them in his pocket, has had a pretty sequel. The  French general who was with our  Minister.for.War thought Mr. Lloyd  George was going to eat them, but  his real intention was,"-it seems, to.  plant them 'when he got him, so that  his descendants might walk under  Verdun chestnut trees, and never forget thc immortal French defence.

Before any'too hasty    conclusions  suited in smaller yield per acre, and  reduced grade of grain in certain localities. ^ _  The average yield of wheat in the  three western provinces is estimated  by the government at about 16 bushels per acre, oats 43 bushels, and bar  ���������re reached regarding this apparently  ley    27    bushels.     These    yields arc  disappointing      comparison,      certain  lets,must be borne in mind.   For one  diing,. last year's crops were really  hcnoiuenal. They more than doub-  'd the 1914 crops, and were considerably more (ban fifty per cent, grea-  jfl^r than in  1913,  the previous "bum-  *er  year."     The    year   1915   was   an  ,leal  season in  all climatic  respects.  'atriotic sentiment, also, that  placed  lie production  of food supplies     for  lircat  Britain   and  her  Allies  in-the  ight of thc most essential duty, was  t a very high pilch".  ' So  large,  indeed,  was  the  acreage  fndcr cultivation in 1915 that thc re-  ulting crop  proved  too large to  be  11 threshed the same fall.

Until actual returns are received from the threshers, all estimates are only calculations -based on fallible principles.  Such uncollatcd threshers' figures as  have come to our notice, and which  have been 'printed without comment  in this publication, reveal that in a  large number of cases the actual returns are far in excess of thc estimates.  'The financial value of their crops  to Western Canadian farmers has  been greater this year than ever before.

Drop  one  British   Advances   May   Force   Germans to  Move  Hangars  Back  The great Anglo-French offensive  on the Sonune in northern France  has a direct bearing on future Zeppelin raids on England. This hint  was'given by a British official in a  position  to know.  in the Anglo-French forces on the  Sommc drive a ' wider and deeper  wedge into the German line, the entire line must eventually fall back to  slraighten itself, k This would mean  that the allied aerial bases in northern France, wcild also move forward.  The natural sequence'is that. German  military and aviation bases, both in  Belgium and reross the Rhine, become from a strategical and military  point of view more legitimate objectives for allied air squadrons. Hitherto, allied air forces have been able  to make long distance raids, but not  heavy ones.   ��������� ...  Thc great Zeppelin hangars in Belgium, including those now under  construction 'and those in Germany  from which the present raiding Zeppelins operate, will become practically  useless   to  Germany.  According lo expert opinion, it is  not illogical lo, believe lhat these  hangars and their contents, under  such conditions,1 would be a total  loss unless the Germans moved them  to safer places. Safer places in this  case would mean far into the interior  of Germany.  Thus all calculations concerning  the Zeppelin radius of action,'"atrnos-  phcric conditions and other scientific  problems of Zeppelin raids on England would have lo he made over  again. Even thc radius of thc great  super-Zeppelins would be seriously  cut down and thc smaller type of  airship probably ��������� would become  wholly useless so far as "strafing  England"  is  concerned.

"Tlie United States has hitherto  stood apart in isolation, but isolation  is no longer possible," said Viscount  Bryce. "Kvery country is now affected, and its safety threatened by  thc spirit of anti-democratic aggression. The United Stales has avoided  entangling alliances. But a league of  peace would be no entangling alliance, ft would be a smoothing down  and straightening out of difficulties  that threaten  to  embroil  the"world."  Viscount Bryce declared than iities-  tions which have arisen  between  the  United States and Great Britain with  regard to the British exercise of belligerent    naval    rights  "arc .'happily J  such as can be disposed of by'pacifici  negotiation,   and  need  not  affect  the I  permanent  friendship    of peoples attached   to   one  another  by  so   manv  tics." -  A Work for Boys  Farm  LICENSED  AND BONDED  Established 1857  *"S  Parents    Should    Encourage  Boys  to Do Things  for  ��������� Themselves  ��������� The  normal   farm  boy  after  lie  is i  ten years of.age begins  to dream ofj  business  adventure and  doing  things  for himself.     He will do some valuable  things  for himself,  profiting by  experience, although the adventure in j  itself may  be a  financial  failure, yet1  inmost cases    his parents    break in.]  upon  him    and spoil  his    adventures  before   he   has   time   to   realize   their,  full     value.

'I.''raper, of. the New York  " Tril/inii', cabling /concerning his recent visit lo the. ("Jrith.li front, said:  : "iVcar the end - of my visit I saw  ���������'General ��������� Sir ��������� Douglas Haig walking  along a road, in earnest conversation  with another British .commander. He  showed not tlie slightest sign of  worry. Me seemed 'to be in"perfcct  ���������health, his face ruddy," his strong  body swinging with tlie motion of a  trained, athlete. He might have been  taking his "constitutional" in Hyde  Park in pre-war times instead of in  l'*rance as thc head of Britain's wonderful army. 1 wondered if Prince  Iviipprcclit and the ' Crown Prince  were taking a similar stroll, oblivious  to the waves of flesh and steel battering, against  their lines.  The i'rilish officers at the front  fear only one thing, and ��������� that is a  premature peace. They want to finish the job as they know they, can  do 'it.  A young German officer taken prisoner resented all overtures with a  cold, haughty, arrogant manner until  finally' lie was invited to join the  mess of the officers who captured  him. Then, he broke into tears, apparently amazed that the enemy  could show such kindness, ff'thc war  has brought out the worst in the Germans, it has produced the best in  xhc British. Thc English bulldog  now has a strain of the fox terrier,  without having lost any of the tenacity of the bull. This is a factor that  must be considered in thc future battles of the war. Perhaps the close  association of the British with thc  l-'rench is' partly responsible, but in  any case the Germans no longer face  an army that rushes into battle headlong, hoping to win by bravery alone.  Stretched out on a cot in a base  hospital that we visited was :i'blonde-  haired man of forty, his face showing  no signs of the rheumatic pains that  were shooting through his legs. The  colonel who was taking us around  stopped before thc bed and asked  the man if he was a Prussian. He  nodded, without change of' expression, though we could see thc bedclothes move as his body stiffened.  "Blonde beasts, some . call them,"  remarked the colonel. "But you must  admire their proud spirit, which docs  not desert them even as prisoners."  I asked another high officer if -the  Prussians had been fighting well lately. He paid them a high compliment,  saying that.they were accepting their  fail share of the brunt of the battle  and doing everything humanly possible to'stem thc tide that had set in  against them. Where Germany is  going to be sorely tried in the great  battles of the future will be in the  lack of those very Prussians, who  have fought so valiantly and paid lo  dearly, on the Somme. Next spring  Germany will, still have an immense  army, but it will never be the fighting machine that began, the present  ���������year.  ���������With' the same foresight evidenced  in the German military machine,  many of its officers were..reserved to  train new men. It was not until the  pressure on thc Somme became so  great that they were called upon for  active service. The casualties of ihe  last summer included a great number of these valuable instructors.  The discipline -maintained by German officers has saved them from  many tight places in thc Somme  fighting, and, if possible, they have  now grown more rigid. There have  been frequent stories of German soldiers found chained or strapped to  their guns. J asked a few British  officers for corroboration on this  point. They scouted the idea. The  straps, they said, were to carry the  machine guns over the shoulders,  thus relieving the burden on the  anus.  "One boclie machine-gun man,"  said one of them, "was stabbed seven  times before we captured his gun.  There is no question of their bravery.-  The German machine gun corps include thc pick of the army, for they  depend tremendously on this weapon."  Farmers Are Prosperous  W. P. Hinton Looks for Large Influx  From U.S. After: the War  "All indications show that the volume ��������� of immigration into Canada  from the United States at thc close  of the war will be remarkably large,"  said Mr. \V. P. Hinton, traffic manager of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, in an interview.  Mr. Hinton reports a very gratifying movement of settlers into Western Canada during the past ummer.  These settlers have been possessed of  considerable means and good equipment.: They were doubtless attracted  by. the lower prices of farm lands,  which generally prevailed, and by thc  certainty that even if one crop can be  secured, equal to tfic general yield of  last year, the entire purchase price of  the land'will be regained.  "Western Canada," said Mr. Hinton, "is oh the eve of tremendous development and prosperity. Splendid  prices have been obtained for the  grain.  "The country districts, at no time  within the past year, have been able  to secure their fall supplies, as- it  seems quite impossible for eastern  manufacturers to keep thc demand  supplied promptly. Farmers are exceedingly prosperous; their purchasing power was never so great, and  perhaps a striking illustration of this  fact is that approximately $2,000,000  more than any other year has been  expended by the rural < population in  the purchascs'of automobiles. In fact  the automobile seems to have become  a farm necessity, and even if we are  disposed to consider it an extravagance it certainly adds to the Joy of  living in the agricultural districts of  Canada.

G. Styles, president of the Re-  gina  Board of Trade.  Altogether thc steps taken by the  Dominion and provincial authorities,  and the banks and loan institutions,  Mr. Styles stated, were producing  splendid results. Officials in close  touch with the situation were delighted with thc result of the campaign, and steps would be taken in  future, he believed, to keep the female stock on the farm as far'as possible, instead of allowing it to be  shipped away for market purposes.  Thc Dominion Government had a  representative located at Ottawa, as  also did the- Saskatchewan department of agriculture, fpr the purpose  of buying up young stock for the  farmers of thc prairie province who  required it. The Grain Growers' As-,  sociation also had a representative  on the ground, and thc result was  that' much stock intended for thc  market found its way back lo the farmer who was in need of it.  A remarkable thing in connection  with the movement back to the farm,  it was pointed out, was the great  number of young cattle whicli were  shipped back to the farms of Saskatchewan, in comparison with the other  provinces. Mr. Styles was inclined to  the opinion that the publicity campaign, waged in this province both  through the press and by the grain  growers, the Regina Board of Trade,  the banks, the loan and mortgage  companies  and  the government,  was  Peaks 11,000 Feet High  Made   Accessible   by   the   Kootenay  Central Branch, C.P.R.

Waiting 'to get into it' one morning some  of the chaps chipped him a lot, asking  him if he would like his mother to  hold his hand and that sort of thing.  Thc quiet chap never answered a  word.  "I forgot all about him when the  dash began, but when we .were in it  up to the neck I saw one of our lads  getting more than his full of the  fighting. He was in the middle of a  crowd of-Huns, everyone of whom  was trying to down him. He was  wounded, his rifle was knocked out  of his hand in the scrimmage, and  five of thc enemy seemed anxious to  have the honor of finishing him off.  "They rushed at him with levelled  bayonet. He dodged: thc first, and  before the Hun knew what was happening he got a blow under the chin  from the fist of thc quiet chap. There  were only four enemies then. The  quiet chap struck but once more with  a blow that would have felled the  sturdiest ox in the world.  "There there were only three. The  first of tlie three got one in the pit  of thc stomach that doubled hini up  and made him how'l like a stricken  animal. That left two. The quiet  chap picked up a rifle belonging to  one of the vanquished Huns. He  brought the butt end down with a  crash on the head of one foeman  more aggressive than his neighbor,  and 'Kaiser Bill' had a soldier less.  The last of thc five must have remembered an engagement he had at  Berlin, for he dashed off in a tearing  hurry.  "He didn't go far. Thc quiet chap  was quicker than he was. A bayonet  thrust did for him, and then the  quiet chap looked around to sec if  there were any more Huns willing to  be taken  on five at a time.

Many Publications  May Be Banned  Keeping    Out Pro-German    Publications Under War Measures  Act  Thc suppression of Pearson's Magazine from circulation in Canada will  likely be followed by similar action  regarding certain well-known daily  and magazine publications in the  United States which are sold broadcast throughout the Dominion. The  matter is now under consideration.  Almost since the war started, a  number of American papers with a  highly developed -'sensational streak,  and rapidly pro-German in the tone  of their articles, have been circulating in Canada, causing an offence to  the patriotic public. Time has not  diminished their bitterness towards  the Allied cause.  Numerous German or Austrian  weeklies have meanwhile been banned, but Pearson's Magazine is the  first American publication of any  pr.ominence to be shut out. More  rigid application"of the ban to publications of much prominence is  now being considered at Ottawa under the authority of the War Measures Act.  .the lake the lifted eyes rested on a  terrace stretched across the valley  like a giant curtain eighteen hundred  feet above the lake, down whose verdant slopes two gleaming cascades  traced their foaming course and filled  the whole amphitheatre with the  sounds of falling water.

Treasure Land  Only Ten Minutes in a Year Lost by  One Girl Worker  Referring to the habits of women  munition workers, a well-known writer says one of their distinguishing  traits is punctuality. There are exceptions, of course, but as a rule thc  gates of thc big businesses have not  to be closed against some women  running up breathlessly to pass in.  They arc all there on time.  "Here is an example I know of  one girl who is employed on highly  technical work. She knew nothing of  machines a little more than a year  ago. Now she sets the lathes for cul-  ting, than which there is nothing  more difficult. It takes her an hour  to go from her home to the factory,  and an hour, of course, to get back.  "For a solid year she has done  that. Up at 5.30 or 6 every morning, six days a week, in order to  get to her factory at 7. Then she  begins a twelve-hour shift; finishing  her work at 7 at night. During that  whole year she has last ten minutes,  in time���������a bad winter morning interfered with her getting to work on the  clot  Valuables Buried in the War-Stricken  Areas  . It is said that thc battlefields of  France and Flanders cover many hidden treasures. During thc early  months of the war villagers in the  stricken areas often buried possessions which they could not take away  with them, hoping to dig them up  again when peace was restored. They  did not realize how unrecognizable  their fields and gardens would become, how utterly the old familiar  landmarks would vanish!  A reader tells that his brother has  made a lucky find. While filling sandbags for a gunpit he' unearthed some  gold coins of the sixteenth century.  He sent a description of one of these  coins, and was given thc good news,  which by now he has doubtless passed on to his brother at thc front, that  thc value of the coin was from $7.20  to $10 if in fine condition. It was  a double ducat of Albert and Elizabeth of Austria, Burgandy and Brabant.  The coins may have been buried  during the present war, of course;  but they may have been- hidden or  lost during some former occasion. In  any case, they were well worth digging up.  Vastness of Our Heritage  The Unknown and Unexplored Stretches of Canada  How little we really know of much  of the world that we talk of familiarly is brought home by the statement that more than a quarter of the  Canadian Dominion remains as yet  unexplored.  The great war has interrupted the  work of development and exploration  in Canada, but Mr. Charles Camsell,  of thc Geographical Survey of Canada, takes stock in the "Geographical  Journal" of the work that remains to  be done when it is over. He gives  an idea of the vastness of the great  Dominion to learn from his calculation that 901,000 square miles of thc  mainland, or about 28 per cent., arc  still unexplored.  The northern part of the Great  Plains is thc direction more than any  other of the probable agricultural development. In the valley of the Mackenzie River is believed to be one of  thc largest oil-bearing regions yet unexplored on the face of the earth. It  is 300,000 square miles in extent. In  thirty years' time, when the oil reserves of the United States will be  exhausted, its time may soon come.  Conserving Livestock  High   Prices   for Feed   Should   Not  Result in Depletion of  Animals  That there is need of the "Production and Thrift" campaign, is conceded by every Canadian who has  taken stock of his country's resources. High prices of our natural  products are desirable, but they  have a bad effect if care is not taken  by producers when selling. If a  farmer, influenced by the prevailing  market quotations, clears off all his  stock, he is not enriching himself nor  his country. . Rather is he making  both himself and the Dominion  poorer. It has been observed by those  familiar with cattle conditions that  many of the farmers are selling' off  animals that would be very useful for  breeding purposes; These go straight  to the butcher, and as meat products  their value,is--limited, but as breeding  animals their value would be -unlimited.  Statistics which have been collected show that Canada had 2,600,000  milch cows in 1915, and has 63,000  less jiow; that against 3,400,000 cattle  a year ago we have 3,815,000; that of  2,038,000 sheep in 1915 we have 1,965,-  000 now, and of 3,111,000 swine in  1915 we have 2,814,000 today.  These are serious decreases and  we have not seen the end of them.  If Western Canadians are to enjoy  all the prosperity they are entitled to,  they must, be conservative in their  live stock sales.  Of course, with feed commanding  high prices and live stock not increasing commcnsurately in price, the  farmers may be tempted to let their  cattle, sheep and swine go, but experience will show that this will be  poor business.  matter, there are plenty of them ���������  not yet even named, some of them���������  But, of course, it's mostly shrapnel.

From   Germany   comes  wails,-   Max Harden    says it is time  there was a change of Germany's policy.      Muensterberg is  talking about  peace,   and   predicting   a   future   alliance  between   rBitain,   Germany and  the United States.    It is-hard to get  the real  truth about the  situation in  Germany, ���������, but  from    all  sources wc  'earn that, the talk of peace is grow-  ing, and that the pressure exerted by  ; the British blockade is becoming har-  .���������der to bear.    Thc Anglo-French successes  on  the Somme-and thc entry  'of Rumania into the war have had a  I'discouraging effect upon the German  \ people,' although great-official-efforts  are made to.minimize the importance  of  these  events, and  Germany's desperate ^attempt to destroy Rumania's  military strength is dictated-as much  by consideration   of   its ' effect upon  political    conditions    at home  as by  '; military, reasons.  A barrister recently returned   from  ���������Germany talks of the spread of revolutionary   tendencies-according   to   a  ������������������correspondent of the New York Her-  '   aid.    He says there has been rioting  i in Berlin and Cologne, that   Berlin is  under "martial law and that in certain  ' garrison    towns Iroops    are retained  ! for    the  purpose    of quelling    riots.  f'   From an' absolutely reliable source it  ': is  learned that a formidable riot oc-  ���������currccl iri'Hamburg on August 25 and  ;,.26,   and   the-editor   of   an   important  Socialist    organ  has    received  trustworthy information that Dresden was  the   scene   during    the   last  week  of  August of a big riot; in which 280 per-  -sons were killed and 160 <woundcd. A  neutral   Minister   who   has   been     in  ���������Germany'twice inthe last six months  found on  the "occasion-of his second  trip, at-the end of July, that the-situ-  atiou  had undergone a  great  change  for-the..worse. He was especially surprised .to .discover how badand scanty food was in Berlin; butit was not  -so  much thc exorbitant prices as the  actual  shortage    of everything    that  struck'him  most.     Another     neutral  Minister says thc Berlin government  is   much  preoccupied  with  the  internal  situation,'and has to weigh  carefully the probable    effect on    public  ���������������������������opinion   of  any  contemplated  action.  ..A Dane who has lived in Berlin for  six or seven years declares that "the  spirit of the people is sinking rapidly  and-the-public begin to lose faith'in.  final victory."  With regard to trade and industry,  the intensity of thc preparations being made in Germany to hasten the  delivery, of raw materials after the  "war is-regarded as the best proof of  "how severely the present lack of  those materials .must be felt in many  "branches of industry. While^ substitutes are" said to be probably in most  cases; of little "'.practical'���������"value", some  of the. inventions may prove -of-real  use. In the case of the artificial production* of nitrates for use as manure  ���������and for the production of explosives  it is reported on the" best authority  that the German process is a really  valuable commercial proposition,  Avhich might with advantage be ^imitated in other countries. Conditions  ���������in the textile and leather trades go  from bad to worse. The supplies;of  ���������cotton for public use'are practically  exhausted, wool is commandeered,  raw silk -is no longer so easily obtainable, and the flax crop cannot  -provide more than twenty per cent,  of the requirements of the nation in  the coming year. The stricter control established over every kind of  raw hide and tanned leather indicates  a growing shortage and augurs ill for  the supply of boots for the civilian  population. The entry of Rumania  into the war deprives Germany of her  principal source of supply of mineral  oils, and none of thc food difficulties  appears to have been permanently  and  satisfactorily solved.  With regard to the harvest, the  yield in general is a good average  one. The prospects of the potato  crop, arc not so good as last year, and  they have been further depreciated  by the serious miscalculations of '.he  authorities in regard to the distributing of thc early potatoes. In order  to secure thc highest prices, the producers dug up their potatoes as fast  as they were able, whether mature or  not. They were piled into railway  wagons still covered with wet earth,  and delivered in enormous consignments in the various towns. At first  there were paeans of rejoicing at the  bountifulness of the crop, and the local authorities vied with one another  in placing orders far beyond their  needs. The result was the potatoes  began to rot, and in a few days the  situation underwent a complete transformation, and an inadequate ration  of one and a half pounds a day had  to be reintroduced for the rest of the  year.  It is expected that conditions regarding food in Germany will grow  worse instead of better. The British  blockade is tighter than it was a year  ago, and some neutral observers say  that next spring there is likely to be  a crisis in Germany, if before that  time thc government is not able to  improve the situation. But we must  beware of supposing that the blockade can of itself end tlie war. The  German armies are apparently sufficiently  supplied.    They  are  not   fed  and tended like the British army, but  they have enough food to fight on,  and it is the German armies, not the  German civil population, that must  be defeated before the war can end.  Moreover, if the German civil population could believe that thc German  armies were winning, it would be satisfied to endure hunger and privation  in the "hope of a final victory. Our  main object must be to send enough  men to the front to deal with, thc  German armies.���������Mail and Empire.  The Largest Telescope  Largest Reflecting Telescope in the  World at Victoria, B.C.  For the Dominion Astronomical  Observatory at Victoria, B.C., there  has just been completed a 72-in. reflecting' telescope which ranks in size  as the largest of that type'in existence. The mirror, which is,used as  a lens for concentrating the rays.of  light, is actually 73 inches in diameter over all, 12 inches in thickness at  the edges and is perforated- by a hole  10 1-8 inches in diameter..."  This, enormous piece of. glass/  weighing 2 1-2 tons, is so evenly supported that no flexure . can distort  the surface, which at no point must  Vary from the theoretical curve more  than the two-hundred-thousandth  part of an inch. Although designed  for' use in different ways, what is  known among, astronomers ��������� as the  Cassegrain focus, will represent the  chief use to which it will be put. This  means that the light falling on the  large mirror will' be reflected back to  thc upper part of the tube, where a  19-inch convex mirror is situated,  and from there back through the perforation in the large mirror to an eyepiece.  The weight of this whole gigantic  instrument is 55 tons,-and it will-be  supported by massive piers of reinforced concrete. The length of the  tube is 31 feet and the weight of this  is 12 tons exactly. The dome and  observing bridge are unique, the former being 66 feet in diameter and  provided- with a double shutter with  an opening 5 feet wide. The telescope, shutter, windsljicld and observing bridge can be moved to any position required by electric motors.  It is interesting to note that although a still larger instrument is  in course of construction, the Canadian telescope holds the palm for  size at the present time.

Many Bulgarian women were armed with rifles,  and more than one wounded soldier  was shot in the back. But while this  butchery was going on many acts of  heroism were being performed else-,  where. l When it was seen that "all  was lost for the Rumanians, and the  36th Infantry regiment's colors were  in great danger, three brave,men decided to make an attempt to save  them by swimming across the Danube. These were Sub-Lieuts. Mihail-  escu and Manu and Sergeant-Major  Sava. Putting Lieut.

Such action on the part of  the American war vessels would. involve a new. and startling departure  from- the old traditions of mutual  service between America and England in the cause of humanity. The  custom of both British and American  sailors in all parts of the world to go  spontaneously to each other's assistance in moments of difficulty has  been so invariable that I had learned  before the war to regard _ American  and British ships as practically ships  of one united fleet for the purpose  of safeguarding and promoting highr  est" interests   of  mankind.  "I hope I may be permitted to  quote one illustration of the way in  which this spontaneous mutual service has had far-reaching effects in  promoting goodwill between America and England. In 1905 I had the  honor of meeting Admiral Dewey  and some distinguished members of  thc American Senate at a dinner in  Washington. On that occasion Admiral Dewey narrated to me, in a  voice and with gestures eloquently  suggestive of the most grateful emotion, the story���������at that time entirely- new to me���������of the way in which  he had received invaluable assistance from Capt. Chichester at Manila. Dewey informed me that the  presence at Manila of German cruisers with a heavier displacement than  that of the American ships caused  him to realize the grave character of  the danger menacing his country  in the- event of the German ships  beginning the hostile action, of which  he at that time had reason to be apprehensive.

This bulletin, by Prof.  Herner, is illustrated profusely, containing 24 cuts showing equipment to  be used in fattening chickens, the  process of killing and dressing and  methods of packing. The question  of breeds for broiler and roaster production is discussed, and valuable information given as to rations to be  used and gains to be expected in fat-  .tening chickens.  This, bulletin is a very "timely one  just now. This season there is in  thc West a lot of nice but rather  thin chickens, and thc prices for well  fattened and packed stock promise lo  be very satisfactory this  year.'  In addition to the campaign for  an improvement in-the farm preparation of our poultry, a campaign is  also being launched to educate thc  consuming city public to a proper  appreciation of the right ' class of  market poultry. In the past far too  many chickens have been sold badly  fattened and then drawn and be headed. Because of the loss in weight  this is not a profitable way for a producer of honest chickens to market  his stock; neither is it a safe way for  the consumer to buy it, because  wholesomeness and freedom from disease arc much more difficult, in fact  almost impossible to judge' in carcasses prepared in this way. In ad-i  dition, thc loss from decomposition  is much more rapid and general in  such poultry. Several thousand copies of a new circular (No. 37) entitled "Hints from the Housewife on  Buying Dressed Poultry," will be circulated among the buying public this  winter.  Copies of either thc bulletin or thc  circular may be had free by addressing the Publications Branch, Dept.  of Agriculture, Winnipeg.  Russian Doctors on Drink  Absence   of   Alcohol  in   the   System  Causes Rapid Recovery  Zemski doctors, thc only medical  practitioners amongst thc Russian  peasants, one and all declare that the  suppression of drink has wonderfully  improved the health and morals of  thc people. This is an obvious fact  to anyone only slightly acquainted  with Zemski hospitals. The rapid and  often marvellous recovery from  wounds by soldiers is also in a great  measure due to thc entire absence  of alcohol in  thc system.  The vodka evil had eaten its way  into the very vitals of village life.  With help of a vedro (2 1-2 gallons)  or several vedros of vodka the peasant, both individually and in his collective or communal capacity, was  often fleeced unmercifully. Valuable  leases of communal lands and property were often obtained on merely  nominal terms after the village coun  Compensation for Losses  Germans Will Have to Replace Every  Allied Ship That Has Been Sunk  During the War  There is not the fain-test chance of  our losing control of the sea before  thc end of the war. Whatever the  final upshot, to make a peace at sea  will then be solely in our hands.  Every British and Allied ship which  the Germans sink means a German  ship thc less sailing under German  colors when peace is restored. For  there is no manner of doubt that no  German merchant ship will put to sea  at all until ton for ton compensation  has been rendered. In the new state  of things that starts aflcr the war  then, French, Russian, Italian and,  above all, British shipping will start  upon its world trade at least as  strong in tonnage as it was on the  first of August, two years ago. _ Thc  German merchant shipping will be  proportionately reduced, and it is  for Germans to say how much smaller they wish it to be when the present war is over.���������Arthur Bullcn, in  Land and Water.

No  action has ever done more to promote  the friendly feelings of one nation to  another than that one action of Capt.

Its absence has brought about  unlooked-for results of the happiest  kind. The money is spent _ on necessities or put into reproductive expenditure.

And how many know that but for a  chance encounter while riding in  Hyde Park, when the monarch met  the peeress, British men-o'-warsmen  might today have been garbed in tunics of scarlet cloth, bedecked with  gold lace, and nether garments of  light blue, fitted tightly to  the legs?  It was" by .the merest chance that  the latter uniform, surely a strange  choice of habiliments for seamen,  was not made thc official uniform of,  the British navy. In the days of the  second George thc men who manned  Britannia's ships wore ��������� any kind of  clothing that pleased them: There  was little or no attempt at uniformity. But thc King decided upon a  change, and had selected the scarlet,  light blue and gold lace confection.  The first 600 uniforms had been made  and thc men of one of the King's own",  ships were to be "dolled up" in the  new uniform, when thc King, riding  in the park, met thc Duchess of Bedford.  Thc lady wore a habit that struck  thc King's eye. It consisted of a  loose dark blue 'Coat-blouse with a  white "V"-shapcd piece let in- at the  neck, and a flowing skirt of thc same  material. That was all, but it struck  thc monarch at once as the simplest  and most suitable design it would be  possible lo find for his sailormcn.  King George called the Duchess lo  him and begged a boon, as they used  to say in those olden days. Thc lady  blushed deeply.  "What! Would your majesty dress  fighting sailors in a woman's habit?  That' surely would be absurd," she  ventured.  But the King persisted, at last offering lo buy the entire costume,  skirt, blouse and "V"-piece, if ' the  Duchess would sell. She wouldn't,  even noblewomen do not as a rule  sell their clothes lo kings. But she  appreciated thc compliment Lo the full  and at once returned.to her home to  change her costume, sending the garments that had won the monarch's  approval posthaste'to the King.  The tailors hastened to make up  the simple garments and a sailor was  sent for lo try them on. He rebelled,  naturally, and it was necessary to  convey the marine to the palace in a  closed carriage, hidden by curtains  from the vulgar gaze, the tailor with  his shears and needles accompanying.  But the entire court '. was convulsed  with laughter at the sight of a hulking, brawny, hairy, red-faced sailor-  garbed in a flowing skirt. The King  was equal to the emergency, however.  "Cut thc skirt up the front and  back in the middle," he ordered, "and  make the scams on the inner side of  the legs."  Only a lew minutes were required  to carry out thc royal order, and  when the work was completed the  first really truly British man-o'-wars-  man stood forth in all the glory of  the first really true uniform.  The success of .the new clothing  was immediate and complete.

Thc Tynesidcrs were on our  right, and as their officers gave the  signal to advance I saw the piper (I  think he was a pipe-major) jump out  of the trench and march straight over  No Man's Land towards thc German  lines. Thc tremendous rattle of thc  machine gun and rifle fire which the  enemy at once opened on us completely drowned the sound of his I man's job  pipes, but it was obvious that he was  playing as though he would burst the  bag, and just faintly through the din  wc heard the mighty shout his comrades gave as they swarmed over  after him. How lie escaped death I  can't understand, for the ground was  literally ploughed up by the hail cf  bullets. But he seemed to bear a  charmed life, and thc last glimpse I  had of him, as wc, too, dashed out,  showed him still marching regardless  of the flying bullets and of thc men  dropping all around him."  A young Canadian birdman says  of flying at night that "you feel like  thc man in the song, you arc all  dressed up and no place to go."

But she was not-stupid; and quick  on the heels of this impulse there  came to her the consciousness that  this would be unavailing. Lord Afoor-  hampton would listen to her, would  perhaps be influenced by her arguments. But by and by lie would  again be subjected to other influences  stronger, than any she could bring to  bear; he would be persuaded and cajoled .by*his wife, who would be, under thc influence of her brother. And  then not only would all the good done  by Mabin's- arguments be undone,  but she would perhaps find that she  herself had been made suspect in his  eyes.  There was silence for a few minutes, and then thc sound of a gong  reached their cars.  "Dear me," said Lord Moorhampton, glancing at the clock which stood  tall and massive, between two bookcases.:  "That's  the first dinner bell."  Mabin  sprang  to  her-feet.  "Lord Moorhampton, will you  think me rude it I go away at once,  tonight?" she said.  "I shouldn't think it rude. You are  incapable of" rudeness. But. 1 can't  allow it," he said gently. "I will go  up to town with you tomorrow, and  then, if you decide that you woulu  prefer not to came back here, I must  bow to Sroii'r decision, although it will  cause me very great regret. I have  never had such an amanuensis, nor  can I hope ever to get one so good  ugain."  But  Mabin  shook  her head.  "I should like to go now, please;"  said she.  "That I cannot allow. You must  at least dine with us  first."  "Oh, no, no," said she, shrinking  back, "how can I? I have nothing  with me but thc clothes I have on."  "That is a difficulty which Lady  Moorliampton's maid can very soon  get over," said he indulgently. "Come  with me, and wc will put matters on  a satisfactory basis without delay."  He made her take his arm, and led  her, timid and shrinking, out of the  room, along the passage and into the  hall.  Captain Dalinaiiie was whispering  to Lady Moorhampton, who was on  her -way upstairs; she was leaning  over the banisters, and he was stretching up to speak to her. Joe Wright  was standing, with his feet planted  wide" apart, his head bent, his hands  in his pockets, and a cigar in his  mouth,  on  thc great  rug  before  the1  fire. He had that curious crumpled  look, that appearance of having been  held under a waterfall, which expresses acute demoralization.  He glanced up and frowned surlily  at Mabin as she came in on Lord  Moorliampton's arm. The girl shrank  and the viscount patted her arm reassuringly.  .������������������������������������_"My dear Edith," he called out to  his wife, "I want you to hand Miss  Wrest over to the care of . your  maid, and'to get her to find her something in (he way of a dinner dress  for tonight, until her own luggage  arrives." . ,  - This speech cast dhsrnay upon all  his hearers, but especially upon Mabin, who uttered a little moan of desperation at the thought that she was  to be imprisoned at Heath Hill  against hcr.will.  Lady Moorhampton, as was to be'  expected, flashed down upon her husband' and the girl an indignant look.  "Oh, certainly," she said with Withering coldness, "Miss Wrest is welcome to anything I have iii thc way  of" dress or jewellery."  Her tone was of set purpose insulting as her words.   Mabin'shrank back  and Lord Moorhampton spoke quickly: - ..........  I     "Miss  Wrest,  if you would  rather  'not  wear any  borrowed  plumes,  we  shall be very pleased to. sec you just  as you arc," he said gently.  ��������� ��������� "Thank   you," murmured    thc girl.;  "But you must excuse mc.    I prefer  not to dine with you.    I shouldn't feel:  at all comfortable, should I?" |  She had recovered a trace of her  girlish spirit, the very excess of Lady  Moorliampton's insolence restoring  her self-confidence. After all, what  was Lady Moorhampton to her that  she should care what she said or what  she did! There were other things of i  far more consequence to worry oneself about!  "If you would really rather dine by  yourself, why, of course, wc must let  you do so," said Lord Moorhampton.  "However, I hope you may be induced to change your mind. You know  your way to your room, I think?"  Mabin, glad to escape, ran upstairs  to  the  'room on    the second,   floor,  which had been assigned to her, and!  here in a few minutes, a servant came;  with  thc-message  that, according  to!  her  wish,  dinner had  been  prepared  for her  in  the  hall.    Thither,  therefore,  Mabin  went,  and  there,  seated  by the fire at tiie little gate-leg table,'  with  the two hounds sitting on their'  haunches  on  the other side, waiting:  for tit-bits, she had the first real en- '  joyment  she    had  experienced  since  her arrival.  Thc great hall, with shadows in the  distant    corners, and  the    little cosy  corner in the circle  of light cast by  the    electric    lamp    beside    her, the:  glowing fire,    the handsome, patient,'  friendly    dogs,    the silent,-   attentive  man-servant in waiting upon her, all  combined to give her a sense of com-,  fort and case, and to allay for a few!  minutes    thc cares    which oppressed,  her. !  While slie was still sharing with I  thc hounds the bon-bons which form- !  cd part of the1 dessert, the dining-!  room door opened and Lady Moor-,  hampton and her brother came out j  together. . Mabin noticed the furtive I  glances exchanged by them, and  guessed at once that they had formed j  some plan of concerted action.  Before they had gone many steps,  Lord Moorhampton and Captain Dal-  msine followed them out of the dining-room,    and    thc    viscount    came  straight  across  to where  Mabin  was  sitting.    .������������������-"������������������..������������������'���������  '.'Well," said he with :i smile,  speaking as if a great weight had  been lifted from his mind, "T think  we have arrived at a conclusion which  .will satisfy you, Miss Wrest."  Mabin: still looked anxious,'for she  saw on Lady Moorliampton's face,  under the forced smile she wore, a  ..look ..which-.was' hard, cold ������������������and disconcerting. '���������    ,  "Lady Moorhampton and "1," he  went on"? "are both extremely anxious  that the: boy should come here. She  is kind .enough to say that she desires no delay to make ourselves certain about him. She, as well as I,  wishes to see him here at once. Everything can ' be cleared up-afterwards. Wc can trust my solicitor  with: that."..  Now to Mabin this news was disquieting'in the extreme. Knowing as  she did that this new attitude on Lady  Aioorhaniptqn's part was the result  of^consultaticn.-with her brother, and  aware that by this show of amiability towards Ciprian's child both brother and sister counted upon recovering their place in Lord Moorliampton's good graces, the girl. foresaw  nothing but peril in the new arrangement.  "Won't you wait," she said,. rising  and- holding- the side of the settle,  while she addressed 'both husband  and wife in imploring tou.es, "till you  have found out: whether,��������� whether  Mr, Ciprian is alive? , Jt would be better for him-to bring his sou here himself, wouldn't it,' if���������if "  Lady Moorhampton and her brother  exchanged   furtive  glances.  "I simply: can't wait," cried the lady  effusively. "I'am so anxious to see  the poor boy. Even if it should turn  out that he was not Ciprian's son at  all, 1 should like to see the poor little  fellow who has been left so friendless."  "Friendless? No," cried ' M'ubin  with spirit. "He isn't that. My mother and I "  "Oh, I've no doubt you have been  everything that is good aud sweet to  him," cut in Lady Moorhampton in.  an off-hand tone. "But it's not the  same thing, is it, to be taken up by  strangers for" a .-few'nights, as to be  adopted by relations?"  "N���������no," said Mabin, biting her lip.  All thc gentlemen felt uncomfortable while this interchange of apparently harmless phrases, with a bittcr  undertone perceptible, was going on  between the ladies. Then Lord  Moorhampton asked Mabin, ������������������rather  hastily, if she would come to the  drawing-room with them.  ,She excused herself, saying that  she was very tired, and Lady Moorhampton suggested at once lhat she  should dp just as she liked, adding in  an artificially sweet lone "that she  must please herself in every way, and  go to rest whenever she felt inclined  to."  ��������� Then they all-left her, but Captain  Dalmainc lingered behind the others,  to say in a kind tone, while Lady  Moorhampton was exchanging eager  whispers with, her brother, and Lord  Moorhampton was caressing the  hounds:  "You're not losing anything that  matters by not going to-thc drawing-  room to hear Lady Moorhampton  sing, Lord Moorhampton snore, and  Wright swear, I assure you."  She could not help laughing, and  she .felt grateful for the few kindly  words from a person who, if he had  not greatly    impressed    her, was  at  least ���������hot one of. tfiose whom she  feared.  Captain Dalmainc would gladly  have lingered for a chat, but at that  moment Lady Moorhampton turned  at;thc. drawing-room door, and called  him .'rather sharply.  "All right, I'm coming," drawled  he.  And he went.  But before doing so,, he managed  to convey lo Mabin, by uplifting of  the  eyebrows  and 'drawing.' down  of  thc mouth,  that he was going away  from  her against his will.  Left to herself, Mabin did not Kn.-  gcr yery long in thc cosy corner. She  was anxious to escape any more in.-:,  terviews, and at the first sound of fri  opening door she fled upstairs to her  room, and crouching on the hearthrug by thc glowing fire, listening to  the wind which was whistling round  the angle of thc house, tried to decide upon a plan of action.

The fact that  wc now possess _the upper hand and  that_ the enemy is fighting on the defensive, hardly daring to expect anything but defeat, is the greater reason for putting all our.strength into  the field.

Thc Dutch Government  propose to drain Ihe Zuyder Zee and  to shut it off by a dyke running from  thc North Holland coast lo thc Frisian coast.  The sea, which is very shallow, and  is 70 miles long aud from 10 to 45  miles broad, was in thc lime of the  Romans covered with forests and  was a royal  hunting ground. -  In 1170 came the great flood  known in Dutch history as the "All  Saints' Day Flood." Thc sea swept  over thc. land, covered thc forests,  engulfed towns aud cities, and  drowned thousands of people. More  floods followed iu 1237 and 1250, and  by 1410 the Zuyder Zee had assumed practically its present proportions.  When'the sea is drained one of the  show places of. Holland will disappear in the Island of Marken.
