Some made a  little cash on the events, others  didn't, and all had an enjoyable  time. The Stampede under the  management of Hans Richter  was ably handled. The dance  Monday evening was a great  success, the Bush Orchestra of  Midway" furnishing the music.  All the sporting events were  pulled oil without a hitch.  There were, of course, a number of attractions not on the  program, but those are common at all celebrations, and  help to keep the crowd interested.

Heel  __ Elihu Root has put the case of the  United Stales against the _ Prussian  autocracy with his usual forcefulncss  and clarity of expression. He says  that as long ns military autocracy  continues democracy is not safe from  attacks which are certain to come  sometime and arc certain to find democracy unprepared. He adds: "To  be safe, democracy must kill its enemy when it can and where it can,  The world cannot be half democratic  and half aristocratic. <It must be all  democratic or all  Prussian.."  Mr. Root is applying to the world  as a whole the essence of the declaration Abraham Lincoln applied to  this nation when he said it could not  continue to exist half slave and half  free. In 1917 the world stands .where  this country stood in the '60's; it is  endeavoring to decide whether it is  lo.be free or all slave.���������Detroit Free  Press.  2 and 5 lb.

Farmers Buying Automobiles  A reflection-of the prosperity that  I he fanners of Alberta, Saskatchewan  and Manitoba have experienced during the last three years is to be found  in the fact tliat the sales of automobiles in 1916 were about 25 per cent,  more than those in 1915. Tlie' greater proportion of the sales of new.  cars was in the agricultural sections.  There arc now upwards of 33,000 automobiles in these three provinces,:  which in a population of a million;  and three-quarters is about one to 53'  l>cople. ,   ��������� '  Harold D. Bertram had Inflammatory  Rheumatism and One Box of  Dodd's Kidney Pills Cleared It  Out of His System.  Southampton, Ont., (Special).���������  That rheumatism-is caused by ^dis-  ordcrcd kidneys and that Dodd's  Kidney Pills will cure it is again  proved by the case of Harold D.  Bertram, a young man well and favorably known here. He had inflammatory rheumatism for two months.  Dodd's  Kidney Pills  cured  him.-  "The doctor said my trouble started with the grippe," Mr. Bertram  states. "My hands and feet were  badly swollen and the doctor did  not seem to be doing nie any good.  My grandmother, Airs. G. Grasscr,  advised me to lake Dodd's Kidney  Pills, I took one box of them and I  haven't been bothered since. 1 am  clear  of the  rheumatism."  That Mr. Bertram's trouble came  fiom his kidneys is shown by his  other symptoms. He had stiffness in,  the joints, was tired and nervous, and[  th.cre were Hashes of light before his)  eyes. He had a dragging sensation!  across the loins; was always thirsty  and felt heavy and sleepy after  meals.  Rheumatism is caused by uric acid  in the blood. Cured kidneys-strain  the uric acid<out of the blood. Dodd's  Kidney Pills cure-the*-kidneys.  Effective Service   Rendered    in    the  War by the Small .Contingents  You may also remember that the  first contingent of Canadians, consisting of 33,000 more or less raw  recruits, was transported to England  in September, 1914, and was able to  participate in the fierce battle of  Neuve Chapellc early in March, 1915.  From then till now at Vimy Heights  the small Canadian contingent seemingly has never been out of range of  the German guns. Tt is needless to  recall what effective'���������'service has- been  rendered by the small contingents of  Australia and New Zealand or the  imperishable glory, won by American  aviators and the American legion,  v- ho, with Alan Sccgcr, have had a  rendezvous with death "somewhere  in France." In the battle of -millions the small contingent of the  right sort has still continued to play  a decisive part.���������Chicago Herald.

For seven yeass there have been  no diplomatic relations between these  countries, while commercial relations  have been preserved through their  respective consulates. The origin of  the rupture goes back thirty-four  years to the Chilean-Peruvian war of  1883.

Rationing- England  Put People on Their Honor No.t to  Consume Too Much Food  The British government has put  the people of the United Kingdom on  their honor not to consume more  than a ,statc'd amount of foodstuffs,  in view of the growing scarcity of  supplies brought about by the intense submarine, campaign . of the  enemy. Lord Deyonport, the British  food controller, suggests that-the  British people ration themselves on  the scale of 4 lbs. of bread, or 3 ibs.  of flour fbiy bread-making a week, 2  1-2 lbs. of meat and 3-4 lbs. of sugar.  The allowances of 'meat and bread  are liberal compared to the average  Canadian consumption. Soldiers on  active, service are allowed-1 Tb; of  bread a day, which is considered a  generous amount, notwithstanding  the fact that they require more nourishment than a civilian, on, account  of their  strenuous  open  air life.  Corns   cause   much   suffering,     butj  11 olio way's    Corn     Cure    offers      a  sj'cedy,   sure, and ���������'satisfactory  relief.  How's This?  One of the handicaps to greater  production is labor. Farmers can-  no t_ secure sufficient help to operate  their farms to full capacities. If they  could, the food supply of this- country would be doubled. It may become  the duly of the government to direct  labor to the farm and "close some industries which s are manufacturing  materials of no vital importance to  our national existence.���������Hoard's  Dairyman. ,     - ���������  STRENUOUS WORK  SOONJTELLS ON YOU  Business    Men ��������� and     Breadwinners  the Victims of Nervous  Exhaustion  When worry is added lo overwork,  men soon become the victims of nervous    exhaustion���������neurasthenia ��������� the  doctor  calls  it.

Waller JJunic Long, has issued a  fcla.tcu'icnt'respecting the work of the  imperial war conference, together  with some of the resolutions adopted  by the  conference..     It    states  that  '������ some of the-matters are. of the most  confidential'character and 'thai the  I nblicalioh of the resolutions and tho  debates  upon  them  will  probably  be  . ir'-possible until after the war.  However, decision was unanimous  (h the respect to the ' resolutions  which are now publishable. On no  occasion was it necessary to divide  or' to withdraw a motion because an  agreement could'not be reached.  '  The conference welcomed the increase-in the number of trade commissioners and recommends thai the  governments    concerned    co-operate,  ��������� especially~for the promotion of iiitcr-  imperial trade.  - It records the view that the 190?  imperial conference 'resolution be  modified so as to permit the full rep"-,  rcsentalion of India in all future imperial conferences, and thai the assent thereto of the. various governments be-obtained.  "'Tt prays that the. king _ constitute 'by royal charter an imperial  graves commission on the lines proposed by the, Prince of Wales lo the  'prime minister. The conference records its deepest appriciation of the  French government's generosity in  allotting in perpetuity the land.w  pur men are buried, and it urges that  similar arrangements be made in the  peace terms with all the allies, enemy and neutral governments, in Gal-  lipoli, Mesopotamia, Africa and elsewhere. -  "-The -conference expresses the  opinion that a readjustment of the  important and intricate subject as to  constitutional rejations of the component parts of the Empire is to  be dealt with during the war, and  should be discussed at a special imperial conference to be held immediately after'thc war. The conference  records further that such readjustment, while thoroughly preserving  all existing" poweis <jC acH-government and complete control of domestic affairs should be based upon a  full recognition of the dominions as  autonomous nations of. an imperial  commonwealth and of India as an  important portion thereof, should  recognize the right of the dominions  and India to a voice in foreign policy  and foreign relations and should provide effective arrangements for continuous consultation on all important  matters of common imperial interest  nud for such concerted action founded on that consultation as the 'several governments shall determine.  The conference recognizes the importance of securing uniformity of  Empire policy and action m regard  to naturalization and commends the  proposals submitted to- the overseas  fovcrnments by the. home ofh.ee. It  recommends that there be no delay  in taking steps for the establishment  in London of an imperial mineral resource bureau, on which the whole  Rmpire shall be represented, wnosc  duties shall include advising how its  mineral resources may be developed  and made available to meet the Empire's  metal   requirements.  In view of the experience of the  war the conference draws attention  to the importance of developing adequately the capacity for production  of naval and military material, munitions-and   supplies  in   all. important  -parts    of the  Empire, including    the  countries  bordering  on    the     I ac.inc  "and Indian oceans, where no such/  faeUitics at present exist. It alhrnis  the importance' of close co-operation  between India, the dominions and  the United Kingdom, with this, object in view. .  The conference urges that me  present svslcm. of double income  taxation within the Empire be taken  in hand immediately after the war,  -ii������d the law so amended as to remedy  the  present   unsatisfactory  position.  In view oi the war experience the  conference recommends, for the safc-  ' iv of the Empire and the necessary  (levelooment of its component parts,  prompt attentive consideration and  concerted action in regard first, to  the production of adequate food supply and arrangements for its transportation wlien aud where, required  uud*r iinv conditions that reasonably  may be anticipated; secondly, to the  control of natural resources available  within the Empire and especially  those of an essential character lor  national purposes, whether in peace  or    war;   -thirdly, lo the economical  "utilization of such natural resources  through manufacturing processes  carried on within the Empire; and  recommends that the. governments  concerned consider the enactment ol  legislation in this direction.  Necessity is Ihe mother of sonic  Inventions, but '.he majority of them  arc orphans.  Aerial Transport  After the War  Aviation  for  Civil   and   Commercial  -  Purposes After the War  The announcement was made in the  British house of. commons by Major  John L. Baird, representative in the  house, bf the Aerial Advisory Board,  that the government liad decided to  appoint a committee-under the chairmanship of Lord Nbrthcliffc, . to investigate civil aerial transport after  the- war.  This, he said, would permit of the  employment of the large number of  'skilled pilots and the airplanes in  the hands of. the army and navy, as  well as of the still vaster number_ of  machines, the construction of which  is under way or planned. ,  Major Baird said the committee  would consider and report on steps  to be taken for the development and  regulation after the war of .aviation  for civil and commercial purposes,  from domestic, imperial and international points of view, aud the extent  to'which it would be possible to utilize the trained personnel and the  aircraft which at the conclusion  peace would be available.  Jt is doubtless true, ,i>- the Get man  newspapers say. that the German  people feel llicmsolv'cs one with their  government. A government (hat control? all Ihe news sources is able to  control ideas lo a very large extent.  There probably are few Germans today who do not believe 'that the war  was forced on them, against the earnest wishes of tfTe government, and  that the government stands between  them and conquest by a horde of enemies.  .One of these 'days the people are  going to learn of the frantic efforts  made by the rest of the world to  substitute arbitration for war 'in the  closing days of July, 1914; of the  readiness of Serbia to meet almost  impossible'Austrian demands; of the  proposal of "Sir Edward Grey of a  Europeans conference; of the refusal  of Austria to consent and the refusal  of Germany to bring pressure to.bear  en her ally.

"When I. was last in Loudon," she  continued, "we were just .clearing up  the Boer war. I then saw London  loose on a "joy ride." 1 saw youths  playing football with silk hats outside tlie stock exchange and girls  dancing in Trafalgar square. "Everywhere the war in those days was  looked upon as a kind of picnic.  "What a difference today! During  the past months I have sought, but  could find no trace of the gay,  thoughtless London crowds I saw  tlien. -,/ Loudon" lias; become grimly  earnest.

"In only a little, West End circle  tliat you could draw .with a compass,  1 have found extravagance and foolishness. The circle is really not London al all, I think. It is a cosmopolitan village in Bohemia,: entirely unrepresentative of your national life.  "The real London is working and  making daily sacrifices ' with'.", strong  determination." .       '-.  "You can see it amongst the men  in the city and in the factories. They  aro working at" high'pressure, and for  once, although they arc British, they  arc not complaining. ,,       ,  "And 'the women in the ��������� 'suburbs'!  They have justified their little red  villages in the matter of thrift. Every  suburban street.-.lias sent its quota "of  men to the front, and in every suburban street I have found women carrying on  gladly and smiling.  "The whole extent and character of  women's labor I find lias been .changed by the war. In no instances have  1 found that the women of London  have lost or arc losmg their womanliness.  "On the contrary, I think they arc  today, realizing a deeper sense of womanhood, finding1 in suffering a measureless strength for making sacrifices greater than ever before.  "Just one word more. The London  of today is a cleaner- city morally  than it was at the beginning of the  century. Girls can go now into places  without molestation that would have  been closed to them even ten years  ���������Ago.  "Don't: send out reports, lo Canada  and the world at large that London is  in the grip of vice and the victim of  idleness. The real London is just  splendid. There is no need to tarnish her banners."  It's Bad Business  Keslriclive immigration regulations  affecting Canadians, as well as tariff  measures, usually bring retaliation by  the Dominion government. So it is  not unlikely that Americans going to  Canada will soon be paying $8 head  tax, or have to go through endless  formality before they can go where  they wish over the border. The intercourse between the two countries  has been growing steadily in the last  few years. Canada has become one  of the most important of the foreign  customers of the United States. It  is unfortunate that provisions of the  new law should hit Canadians, for  aside from friendliness we may feel  toward them , it is bad business.���������  Buffalo Express.  Some girls are so easily flustered  that they even lish for compliments  with bated  breath.  Why Americans  Enlist So-Slowly  They  Want . Lots    Cast    and    Then  ���������They'll Take Their Chances  as Indicated  Aitnesley Burrowes writes as follows in the Detroit Free Press:  'That million of volunteers who  were to spring to arms over night,  according to the promise of anti-preparedness congressmen, have not yet  sprung. In fact the United States  has not as yet produced, as many mil-  ��������� itary volunteers 'as; Ganadaiproduccd  during the first.weeks of the war.  Excluding -the;.French- Canadians,  who have;uot,.responded to the call,  Canada has only-a" few: more than 5,-  000,000 of'people,; while the United  States has ;about -20 times that number. Within: two; weeks-after; ihe call  for volunteers;, Canada- -had^ 32,000  men under arms, and more coming.  On the same; basis, had Canada been  a nation ,of 100,000,000 it would have  produced in the same- period 740,000  volunteers. Since: "thewar began,  Canada with her 5,000,000 of available  population, has enlisted ,400,000 volunteers and at the same rate, had she  possessed 100,000,000 : population,  would have...: produced -8,000,000 of  volunteers.   -  -Nobody has yet 'suggested thai 8,-  Q00,000: Americans will -volunteer or  be asked to -volunteer.- for military  service. But, on the other hand nobody would venture to suggest that  the young men of the United States  are less courageous tlian the young  men of Canada,.  The fact simply is that the young  men of the United States arc more  progressive than the young men of  Canada. The Canadians stuck lo the  old fashioned idea of volunteering.  They .persisted in the belief that the  state has no right to callon its young  men to sacrifice life and fortune for  the benefit of the .whole nation. Tu  their opinion, it was the duty of the  state to beg this favor of its-people  and they thought the people retained  the privilege of asceiuling when they  felt like it, or of telling the state lo  go hang if they did not choose, to  come to its aid. In a word, it nc\er  occurred tb the Canadians to raise an  arm3r by any other means than the  volunteer method.  There are many American boys  who share the Canadian., view, and  while these arc._ not enlisting over  night, by the million, as some.-congressmen so confidently predicted,  they arc nevertheless enlisting in  considerable numbers. But the .majority of our youth have learned  inuch since 1914, and look at the  matter of military service from a  new angle. They arc quite willing lo  serve their country, but they do not  see why certain ones should spring  to arms while a lot of others who  owe the same, duty remain at home  and make, high wages or great profits out of tlie war in which the volunteers make nothing but on the contrary lose legs, blood, and health.  It is plain to them that the only  fair way in which the selection of  soldiers"can be made is by the drawing of lots. They arc perfectly willing to take chances. If they draw a  job in a munition factory, or a chair  in an office, they will perform their  duty to the country in that capacity,  and if 1 hey draw a billet with a regiment of infantry, or a bailery of artillery, they will go to France. . or  elsewhere, and acquit themselves as  Americans should.  IS FRIGHTENED  ECTRE OF FAMINE  UNENVIABLE   POSITION    OF    ENEMY   COUNTRIES  The Whole Continent is  Aroused to Realization that Starvation  May Intervene Before a Military Decision Can Be Possibly  Reached by. the Combalants   o    The Heartless Huns  Will  Gerjnans  Drive    the    Helpless  " Belgians Against Allied Guns?  General von Bissiug, the German  Governor of Belgium who has passed from this earthly sphere, was an  excellent' specimen of the military  brute developed by the Prussian system. ' An American newspaper correspondent, Fred C. Walcott,1 in an  address in Minneapolis gave an illustrative account of an interview with  von-Bissing. He said, according to  the Alimicapolis  Journal:  ."I asked the German Governor of  Belgium, General von Bissing, what  they would do if the. British ��������� and  French withdrew their support of  the Belgians aud French^ who are  within the German lines. He said  preparations had been made for tak  ing the skilled workmen to Germany  to release Germans for war service,  and the others of both sexes who  were healthy would be shipped to  Mesopotamia, where they would irrigate that country, and make il ready  for the German colonists to come.  The others, he said, old and young  aud weak, would be herded together  and, with a firing squad behind thcm7  driven against the British and French  Runs to be passed through aud cared  for by those who were really responsible for their care. Belgium 'would  then be peopled with Germans and  the question of Belgian liberty would  be settled forever."  This interview look place some  months ago���������before the capture of  Bagdad by the British, which spoiled  part of von Bissing's ideal. But another part, the deportation of skilled  workmen to Germany has been carried out lo some extent; and perhaps  yet we shall sec an attempt made to  execute the last part, namely the  driving of the weakest of ihe Belgian  population in front or the British  guns.  Of course von Bis<iug was r.o  worse than the whole German general staff. Jfc was merely frank. 'Ihe  rest of iliem would carry out such a  program with perfect checrtVlness.���������  Ottawa  Tourual-Press.

So great is the  slore of scrap metal that the steel  industry is figuring the advantage  of trying to rake the blood soaked  area of France's supreme resistance",  when the war is over, to redeem the  fragments.  Military reports on many da\s calculated that a million or moie projectiles had fallen into the area iu  twenty-four hours. The steel trade,  however, prefers to estimate that  Verdun was hammered al the moderate rate of a million a week.  A total weight of 1,350,00(1 lorfs is  believed to await profitable ademption from the area of the mures-.  At the present price of scrap steel,  $17.50 a ton, ihe deposit is worth  $23,625,000.   Bare Shelves  French Praise for Canada   '  The  Echo de  Paris  contains a   detailed, account of the  pari: played by  Canada in  the  war.   The  paper says  iu part:  "Every week brings us news of the  unvarying generosity of the Canadians, who never cease to offer invaluable assistance in money and  lives. Moreover, although everywhere else Germans are traitors to  the country of their adoption German-Canadians give proof of their  loyalty and do their whole duty just  like the other inhabitants of Canada.  Food Shortage Will Not Be Relieved  in 1917  The world-wide shortage of food,  is not likely to end with 1917. Reserve stocks arc depleted. No matter  what efforts-are. put forth now, there  will be no accumulation of reserves  by next autumn. We shall -enter  191S'with bare shelves, and, even ii  the war ends with the present summer, general uusettlement -and delay  in restoring to civil employment men  now- engaged in war will 'probably  cause world production next year to  fall below the. normal.  It is imperative, therefore, that in  this country our plans for increased  production should not be limited to  the present. We. have, indeed, been  too slow in appreciating the condition by which we arc faced to render  possible such increase in production  this year as should have been provided for. It is not early now to plan  for next season. While doing everything possible to recover lost ground  in 1917, let us not forget the necessities of 1918. More production this  year and still more production next  year should be the motto ever in  mind.���������From  the Toronto Globe.  "The Smith  other night."  "Was   it   their  celebration?"

The whole continent has suddenly been aroused to the realization  that starvation is possible long before a military decision can be  reached.  The, government-inspired German  press is holding out assurances that  "England is on the verge of starvation and is certain to collapse for  want of food iu a few weeks, regardless of military conditions. The  German general staff is issuing the  most preposterous misstatements regarding the military situation to convince the people- that military conditions are of secondary importance.  In both< regards the German government is misleading the people.  Britain faces the necessity of holding  out until the new crop is harvested.  After which she will get a long respite because the interned German  ships and new ships will become the  dominant factor in the transport-  situation. >>  Nevertheless Great Britain is getting a much needed scare about the  food situation. Great Britain and  France are moving heaven and earth  to show such a military preponderance as will overcome German confidence based on the success of the  submarine campaign.  Spain and Scandanavia confront a'  black prospect because their economic resources are less able to cope  with the conditions, aud the United  States must henceforth co-operate  with the Allies, depriving the neutral  countries of supplies so that Great  Britain and France can be fed fiisl.

That food will be one of the  problems left entirely in . American  hands is believed certain.  This will mean that one man, or  small group of men, will bz named  by President Wilson to dominate the  production and distribution of all  food in the United States.  it is deemed probable that this  stop will involve the formation of an  iuler-Ally Food Commission, coin-  prising a director-general for each  nation.  The Austrian Emperor's Prayer  Austria made this war, and urged  on by Germany, insisted upon having it. A few years earlier she seized  Bosnia and Herzegovina, regardless  of the risks of causing a great war  at that time. In 1912 she sought to  induce Italy to support-her in war,  but Italy re'iused. In 1914 she set out  to overthrow and absorb Serbia,  knowing that her action would bring  on this great war, unless Europe, for  a second time, looked on and allowed  her to make conquest as she willed.  Yet the Emperor now, in his prayer,  while his words arc reverent enough,  lies to Heaven by asserting that he  and his people have fought only iii  self-defence.���������Toronto Star.

Everyone knows what honor they  have brought to the Dominion by  their courage in battle' and their  cheerfulness and adaptability in camp  and field.;  What of the last and greatest test  of manhood; the inevitable encounter  that awaits us all, from ..which only  the spirit can hope to emerge victorious?  Chaplains of the, Canadian corps  with whom I have spoken say without hesitation that Canada's sons  who pass,out, iu the field and in the  ambulances and: hospitals immediately behind the front, die as bravely  as   they fight. ���������������������������  "I have yet tb hear one of these  , ..mortally wounded men express fear  of death," said a chaplain who has  knelt in the field byr the side of dying men wherever Canadians have  fought���������in the Ypres salient, on the  , Somme, at Festubert���������-and,.,, who  wears the ribbon of the Military  Cross���������given" for conspicuous valor..  "Most of them," he added "have  thought of tlie other side as men will  v. ho are confronted daily by death  in many turns. In most cases mortally wounded'.men are mentally alert  when they go out.

In .one case I recall, a young ;,chap  was greatly distressed over the; blank  his death would leave in the life of  his fiancee. The general note is that  of unfaltering acceptance of the .inevitable."  Another chaplain, speaking of his  ministrations to dying men, said:  "We did not send over all the saints  in Canada to do our share of the  fighting. Some of our men have been  hard cases, but I have yet to hear  one avow himself an infidel or an unbeliever in a hereafter. The dying  men have the instinct of immortali-  ty."  The testimony    of    Canadian  field  chaplains as to how the men face the  king of terrors1 is  that of much  experience.   The sixty-five  chaplains  at  present on duty' represent all the important branches of the church- They  labor together in-the most complete  harmony���������Protestant   and     Catholic..  Anglican  and    Methodist,  Presbyterian and Baptist.    They hold services  for  the men in  the  field  often  under  shell   fire,   comfort  and   pray  for  the  dying,   write   letters   to   the   relatives  at home of those who pass out, and  in addition  operate a-system of canteens  and  cinema  entertainments  behind  the lines a  good deal  like that  of   the   Y.M.C.A.,   the   chief   difference being that the chaplains' system  is   officially-   recognized,   and   its    accounts audited by the army officials.  Tlie canteens are,    of    course, dry",  and  the  things sold arc largely supplementary  eatables.  The    entertainers at the cinemas and the men who  operate  them  are   so    selected    that  there   is  no   impairment     of   fighting  strength.  Men out on leave, or certified   as   temporarily    unfit    for'   the  trenches   are   utilized.     No     salaries  are paid, and the profits are used  to  rrovide coffee behind the  front during    engagements,      and      Thermos  flasks  with  which  coffee and tea are  conveyed to   the wounded along    tliCj  line  of  an  advance  and  at  the  first-j  aid stations to which the ambulances!  cannot   penetrate.

Im  mense Benefit to Humanity, I  Wheii at street .corners in cities  and larger towns of Canada West,  the "Blood and Fire" flag of the Sal  vatiori Army is noticed, tangible' evidence is forthcoming that a mighty  agency for the betterment of mankind is in operation.  It is not" feasible to presume that  the late General Booth at the commencement of his efforts, surmised  within his most sanguine thought the  magnitude his small beginning would  attain in later' years. Early days of  his career bore ..witness to firece opposition, but Booth was never daunted. His work continued., Today the  civilized world recognizes what his  labors  have  really represented.  The Salvation Army has, is today,  thrusting forward warfare against  the enemies of righteousness. The  beating of the drum and sound of  the tambourine may have appeared  a somewhat strange method and program, perchance peculiar; By many  people the proceedure was considered unwarranted by tenets of reli  gion. But the Christian world has  thrown asunder any prejudice. The  results of that army's labors have  merited approval tlie earth over.  Much of the army's phenomenal success can be attributed to the fact that  a large percentage of its ranks are  enabled to speak from personal, not  theoretical knowledge of life's intricacies. Upon its roll calls are enumerated a humanity rescued from the  world's by-ways, and now brought  into higher ideals of citizenship, thus  enabled to render practical proof of  the potent factor through which, such  transformation has been brought  about.-  Rescue homes, hospitals, social  and food depots, work yards, prison  gate, slum angels, represent plans for  the uplifting of humanity, active formulas never before conceived, by  the Christian church. And various  other phrases of Salvation Army effort might be mentioned���������employment bureaus, search for lost rela-i  lives and friends. _ ���������  Booth has passed away. His great  work is remaining. Future history  cannot be complete without reference to the efforts he inaugurated,  ever to be continued by the Salvation  Army, the friends of outcast men  and women. All over the world are  standing monuments to General  Booth, not-.figures of stone, but living witnesses. The mothers of once  drunken sons, wives of former dissolute husbands, ask these what they  think of the  army's  work.  At  the    time    of    Booth's    death,  Queen  Alexandra  of Britain  eulogized his  work in the following words:  "The world owes  General  Booth a  debt   of   eternal   gratitude."

After big war orders began to arrive from Russia the  2,000 workmen in-the Tokio arsenal  increased manifold until now no less  than 15,000 hands are busy there  from day to day.  -���������'.'���������The men labor from .eight to ten  hours a day, according to pressure of  work. At present the demand for  munitions is so insistent that the  work goes on from 1 a.m. to 7 p.  m., a 12-hour day. The.work goes  on at night ;also, from 7 p.m. to 7  ai'm. ;, The most pressing demand at  present is for rifles and small arms  for which big rush orders are being  filled.      '.���������;������������������  "The wages of the Japanese arsenal worker are small compared with  the same kind of man abroad, being  from 30'���������������������������sen a day (16c) to 1 yen  (50c) for a day of ten hours. The  men are paid 20 percent more for  overtime, so that a man who, receives  30 sen a day will get 42 sen if he has  to, work overtime, while the man  who gets:;T'.ycn a day will get nearly  2 yen; a day .for overtime. The men  have no .time off, save on Sundays  and national  holidays.  "As the 'work of the arsenal is  strictly.:������������������'secret everyone entering or  leaving the great works is closely  scrutiriized. ;.The workmen have to  carry a metal pass each, the permanent hands having a nickel pass, and  the temporary hands a brass one,  each pass  being numbered.  "Besides the Tokio military arsenal  there is a big naval arsenal, with another at Yokosuka and another at  Kure, where munitions and arms are  made by still more expert workmen.  In these arsenals the wages are higher, the rate-ranging 'from 12 "sen "a"  day to 3 yen, the most expert, men  make about 100 yen a month.  "Many of the guns with which Russia is now stemming the tide of invasion so successfully were made by  these Japanese arsenal workers; and  they are still busy supplying such  weapons. About 80,000 men are  now busy in these naval arsenals,  turning  out  munitions  for  Russia."  How Canadians Save  The  Thrift   Campaign  Has    Proven  Eminently Satisfactory  The splendid response of the people of Canada to the thrift campaign  initiated by the government is emphasized in a memorandum issued by  the Dominion Department of ^Fi-  nance.  It is as follows:  "That the thrift campaign is proving eminently successful is shown by  the returns of savings in chartered  banks, and the numberand amount of  war'savings certificates and debenture stock issued by the Department  of Finance, The total savings in  Canadian chartered banks at the end  of February amounted to $1,300,000,-  000 in round figures. For the same  month in 1916 the amount was $1,100-  000,000, and for 1915 $1,000,000,000.  This shows an increase in the savings of the people during the last two  years of no less a'sum than $300,000-  000. In addition, nearly 80,000 war  savings certificates have been sold,  aggregating $5,500,000, and five per  cent, debenture stock aggregating  $8,500,000. To this there should be  added the amounts of the two previous war loans, which aggregated  $200,000,000. On the whole it would,  appear from these' figures that over  $500,000,000 has been saved by the  people of Canada during the  two years,"  Prices May Be Expected to be Somewhat Higher Than Last Year  Interesting statistics in regard lo  what may be expected in the binder  twincmarket during the coming year  arc given in a letter which the Saskatoon Board of Trade has received  from L. H. Dewey, botanist in  charge of fibre investigations for the  United States department of agriculture at Washington.  Mr. Dewey, who has just returned  fiom an expensive investigation trip  to Porto Rico writes to Commissioner Sclanders:  "So far as I have been' able to  learn, there seems likely to be a sufficient supply, of binder twine for all  needs, but owing to the high price  of fibre the prices of binder twine  arc likely to be much greater than  last year. Two or*three of. the prison binder-twine plants have quoted  prices'for the coming year at 13 to  14 cents per pound, with discounts  for large quantities and for prompt  payment.  "The quantity of henequen imported during the calendar year 1916  is reported to be 221,126 tons, which  may be compared with 183,542 tons  during the calendar year 1915. The  importations-for 1916 were the largest on record. It appears like a  commercial paradox to have binder  twine quoted at a price 2 to 3 cents  per pound less than the current quotations, for raw fibre. Much of the  fibre, howrever, used in the twine  for the coming season was purchased in the previous year at 'lower  prices, but, of course, it is argued  that if farmers receive a higher price  for wheat, amounting to $10 or more  per acre above what they received  in former years, they can afford to  pay the 10 to 15 cents more per  acre for the higher cost of binder  twine." -  A Sublime Oration  Canadian Women Return  Hundreds of Women Who Went to  England Returned to  Canada  When it is possible to write it, one  of the most interesting chapters of  war history will describe *how Canadian" women and children in England,  Mho for many reasons M'ould have  been much better off in their own  country, were returned to the Dominion. : v  A great effort towards effecting  this has just been accomplished by  the British and Canadian authorities,  M'ith the result that hundreds of women and-children who had come to  look upon residence in England as  one of the .fates which the war-'.had  "brought urjoii-chemr"wlII cre~ long"be-  treading once more the streets of  ���������Montreal and Winnipeg.  Many took the risk at the last moment, but -on the other hand, a fai  larger number clamoreel for admission into the party. The authorities  found themselves eventually so embarrassed with applications that further suppliants- had to be refused.  They embrace all classes.  There were wives of fighting men  with several children, who had got  to England early in the war an-d had  been staying with English relatives  or living under much less desirable  circumstances. There were one or  two wealthy women who had come  to England with large ideas of doing  war work, but found that while their  offers of help -were courteously considered,- there M'as not-muth scope  for such .labor as they were disposed  to offer. There were not a few m-Iio^'  had been doing really capable service  in England, but' whose work was  more valuable in Canada.  It was a motley crowd, from all  point's of view, which the authorities  dealt with, and' the labor connected  with tlie applications was truly gigantic, especially as.it had to be done  iu double quick time. However,  everything is successfully accomplished, and when the full revelation  of all the details is pernn'ssable, _ it  will make one of the most interesting  stories of the war.

But this much is certain:  that the tremendous structure ot  Germanism which our countrymen  had erected there during centuries  of work, .has been shattered to its  foundations.

When  In a large British factory that produces surveying instruments, spiders  arc probably the most indispensable  workmen. It is their duty to spin the  delicate thread used for the cross  hairs that mark the exact centre of  the object lens in the surveyor's telescope.  Spider vvcb is the only suitable material yet discovered for the cross  hairs of surveying instruments. Although this fibre is almost invisible  to the naked eye, the powerful lenses  of the telescope magnify it to the  size of a man's thumb. Human hair  when magnified in the same way has  the apparent -dimensions of a "rough  hewn, lamp post. Moreover, human  hair is transparent and cross hairs  must be opaque.  The spiders produce during a two-  months' spinning season thousands  of yards of web, which is wound  upon metal frames and stored away  until needed.

Everywhere throughout Canada  there is a movement to.convert back  yards, vacant lots and parks into  productive vegetable gardens.

The Thing That Counts  Major-General Watson answers the  question: "Who are the best soldiers  now?"    The bravest soldier    in    the  world,   he  says,   is   the   English   officer, who does not need to lash himself  into  a  passion   to   get  one  hundred   per   cent,   of  his   courage,  "but  will-walk right up  to  death  twirling  his cane."    Such a tribute from General   Watson���������himself  a   brave    man  and   an   accomplished   officer���������means  much.     Perhaps   too   little    recognition   has   been   given   to   what    must  have been a factor of  great  importance in the-war, the cold courage of  the   Englishman.   Behind  the  British  mask  of  impassiveness   there  is   still  the   thing   that   counts���������the   breed.   From the Montreal  Gazette.  A woman's words are the milk and  her meaning is the cream that slowly  comes  to  the surface.  without hesitation and in Canada the  Boy Scouts are leaving a record of  service which every Canadian, is  proud of.  Not a military organization, but one  in which tbe highest ideals of citizenship are taught. Loyalty and patriotism go hand in hand with service  to ones home and country and if Boy  Scouts join up with the military units  it is only because they realize their  duty and arc prepared to do' it when  the call comes.  "I promise to do my best to help  other people at all times-"    One    of  three promises made by a boy on becoming a Scout is exemplified in the  action of the Scouts    of Cambridge,  England, who have volunteered (over  200  strong)   to assist  the farmers   in  their locality with the production of  food.     Two  hundred  or  more  boys  [ saved the Berry Crop in Ontario last  year and the Scouts of Ottawa have  already signified their intention of assisting where practicable in the production of farm and garden produce.  Other  Scouts  in  Canada  will  follow  the  example  of their  brother Scouts  in Ontario ana" assist in the gathering  of this year's crop.    "A Scout is hun.  gry but he need not be," is the caption  of an article appearing in a recent issue of the official organ of the Boy  Scouts of America and descriptive ot  the success of a troop in  converting  a vacant lot into a productive market  garden.      Making a garden is worth  while just for  the fun there is in it,  and also for the very material    help  provided   in   the  production   of  food  for  the  country.  Bagdad or Nothing  What Gen. Maude's   Victory   Means  to German -Plans  If the impprtance of a military position is determined by the view that  the  enemy  attaches   to  it,  then    the  capture of    Bagdad    is  one    of    the  greatest accomplishments of the war-  For  this  is  what    Paul ,Rohrbach,  one  of the  best known  protagonists  -of the  Hamburg-to-Bagdad    project,  a man who has probably done more  than'; any other  to  maintain .German  ambitions  in  the   .Near  and   Middle  East at white heat said of it before  the  ancient   city  fell    inl  Maude's hands:  "What    will    happen    should    the  British and Russians drive in a wedge  between  us  and  our plans    in     the  Orient?"

You  live in a country which is effeminated  by the influence of old-fashioned  ideas of .liberty, which is now centuries behind us. You require a strong  dose of Prussian culture. It is evident that you, a Swissesse, fashioned to French thought, cannot understand that my young German gill's  heart   has   ardently,  passionately  Use of Fertilizers  How the Town Can Aid the Country  in Production  The need of cordial co-operation of  town   and   country   in     the     services  which are .important in  their relation  to   the  war' is   emphasized   by  many  speakers   and   writers.    One   of    the  most    practical    suggestions    comes,  through   the Halifax Chronicle,  from  the Secretary of Agriculture of Nova  Scotia  and   Principal   of   the   College  of   Agricultiiic-ac   Truro,     Mr.   Melville   Gumming.     Principal   dimming  thinks   that,  in  view  of   the   scarcity  of  farm   labor,   we  cannot  look    for  much, if any, increase of the acreage  to  be'cultivated  this year,  when   the  need  for increased  production  is  being pressed  upon    public    attention.  The  next  best  thing  to  increase    of  acreage is  that  there shall  be  better  farming,  and    increased--production,  on   the  land   that   has  already    been  worked.   One thing of much importance   to   this   end cis  a  larger  use  of  fertilizers. How much can be done in  this   way' is   explained     by  Principal  dimming.   "It is  possible,    for    example," he says, "on a well cultivated  field  to. produce from   three  hundred  to four hundred bushels  of potatoes  per  acre  instead  of  one  hundred and fifty to tM'o hundred bushels,   simply  by"adding  one   thousand  to  fifteen  hundred  pounds  more  fertilizer  per  acre  than  it  was  planned  to use. "Some farmers are not afraid  to  buy  this  extra amount of fertilizer, but others, because of shortage of  capital  or lack of confidence or fear  of  the   fall  market,   will   not    do  so,  r.nd   consequently   hundreds   of  acres  in Nova Scotia that might be producing  maximum   crops   will   be  producing only 50 per cent,  to 75 per cent,  of  that  maximum."  Principal Cumming's aim is to have  the  city  men   co-opeiate    with   their  farmer   friends,   or   with   other  farmers with, whom they may be brought  in   contact,   by   supplying     quantities  of approved   fertilizers   at  cost,     and  agreeing to take payment in the productive season in vegetables at a fixed   minimum   price.       As   a   concrete  example   of     how     the       transaction  would operate,  Mr.   dimming says:  "A city man sends to a farmer one  thousand pounds of- high-grade fertilizer at a cost of $18. He agrees with'  the  farmer  to  accept  repayment   for  this in potatoes at the fixed minimum  price of 70 cents  per bushel,    which  means that the farmer is to ship him  25 5-7 bushels of potatoes, which  the  city   man   accepts   as     full     payment  even   if   the   prevailing  prices   should  be only 50 cents. The city man's additional   reward  in   this   case    comes  from the fact that he has done something  to  increase  the  food  supply of  the  country.. If,   on   the  other  hand,  the   prevailing     price     for     potatoes  should   be  $1   per  bushel,     the    city-  man   would   not   prevent   the   farmer  from taking advantage of this and so  %vould expect only 18 bushels in payment for the fertilizer."  The farmer has the safe side of  this transaction, since he 'cannot" receive less than the minimum price,  and he gets the benefit of any advance the market may have. The city  man takes a little risk in the possibility that by the autumn prices may.  fall and -he might be able to. buy his  potatoes at less than the price he  has agreed lo pay the farmer.

I   say  Prussians,   for  if,   as   Germans,     M-e    arc  overlords  of  the world,  the  Prussian  is par excellence the overlord of the  Germans.

You must admit  this is  logical   reasoning, and  that is  why our device is 'God with us, and  Germany  over  all.'  You  will   understand now why we wanted this war.  "Is it not shameful that other peo^  pie who have no right to exist on this  earth  should  wish  to reduce  our inheritances?  We are the Divine fruit,  and all others  are-but weeds.

This  has been recognized in England in  the scheme of Mr. Lloyd George's  government to encourage agriculture, which gives the farmers assurance of a minimum price for tl.eir  crop.

Burke's well-known melodramatic  flinging of a dagger on the floor of  the house of commons was a farcial  event which gave scope for a joke  from   Sheridan.  "The   gentleman    has   brought    us  the knife, but where is  the fork?"  He    spared    neither friend nor foe  with his M'it.

AND  LAST  It was not until she had held Ihe  boy some minutes in her arms, peering anxiously into his face and alternately crying and laughing over him,  that Mabiu came to herself sufficiently to note that there were two men  outside the cab shuffling their feet  and  anxious  for an  explanation.  Lifting Dibs up in her arms, she  took him out of the taxicab, and addressed the "policeman and the taxi-  driver apologetically.  "I'm so glad to see the boy again  that. I'd forgotten everything' else,"  she. said. "How did he get here?"  The explanation was a simple one.  The boy had been found under the  beat of a railway carriage at Padding-  ton, and having been able to give the  address he wanted to go to, he had"  'been taken there at once in charge,  of the policeman. Mabin paid the  driver, gave all the information required by the policeman, including a  piomisc to pay the boy's railway fare  011 the following da3r, and then carried her prize into the house in triumph.  Inside the house door she paused,  set the boy on his feet, and imposed  silence on the servant, who was  loudly expressing her delight at his  return.  There was now the question of the  best way of communicating the happy- news to Ciprian without causing  him more emotion than was good  for him.  Happily Uie doctor looked out of  the sitting room door at that moment, and Mabiu explained her dilemma to him.  "Oh. it's all right. Bring the kiddie in," said he "A shock of that  kind will do him no. harm, if, as you  say, he didn't know what had become of the. little man."  Mabin, however, suggested , that  I'icre should be an interval for re-,  fccshment and for repair of the damage of travel, for Julius looked a deplorable sight.  With face, hands and clothes begrimed and disordered hair in a  Jangle which threatened to resist the  "efforts of the stoutest comb, Julius  was only- recognizable by his voice  and his smile, and even these marks  of his identity' showed signs of extreme fatigue. ,  "Zere! I did it! Dibs did it. I  said I would, I told zem so, and zey  sought I wouldn't.    Ha, ha!"  lie chuckled as he threw his anils  about her neck once more, and when  she took him into her own room, and  washed him and brushed him, and put  him into a clean pinafore, he insisted  ' on giving her at once a long, confused account of his adventures, from  which she gathered that he had made  up his mind, as soon as he found out  that she had gone to London, that  he would take the first opportunity  of going after her.  "But there Was your father, Dibs!  You  shouldn't have wanted to  leave  the  house  where  he was," said   Mabin gently.  Dibs  seemed     rather    disconcerted  by this reproach.   Then  he said:  "But  I  couldn't   sec  Papa,  Mabin.  y.cy wouldn't   let   me   see   him."  "You  didn't   tell   anybody  he     was  tV.re,  did  you?"  '"Course  not,"   said  Julius    indignantly.     "Zat  was    a    secwet,    aud  Dibs can keep a secwcl.    But I asked old Mrs.   Yowndes to yet me see  Papa, and all she said  was 'Sli-sli.'"

Mabin knew that he meant the second gardener, who was a particular  friend of Julius, and the confidant of  Lis hours in  the garden.  "I. told zem not to tell anybody,"  Julius went on. "And f told ztm  zat f was going to .v.'itn away. ��������� I  didn't tell zem where I was going, so  I couldn't be caught," he added  shrewdly.,  ''Why did you want to run away,  Dibs?"

This story, though lacking in detail, was sufficiently clear to enable  Mabin to gather the outline of the  adventure.  By that time the boy was presentable, and finding on inquiry that he  was not "veWy hungwy," as "he had  been for the greater part of the journey munching the biscuits, supplied  by the grocer's boy, she took him into the sitting room.

"The alternative is for you to go'out again, into  the fog and to get another chill and  to peg out in about a week."  "Best thing I could do," muttered  Ciprian. '  "Well, that may be. I've no  means of judging. But as it certainly is not what the young lady  herself wants you to do, I think you  had better make up your mind to  consider  her wishes."  "You don't know, doctor.. You  don't understand. I happen to know  why she is staying away, and who  it was thai came just' now," said  Ciprian  hurriedly.  "You know that, do'you?" said the  ckl doctor, with a twinkle in his  eye. "I'm ready to bet that you  don't."  Ciprian stared at him.  "Wasn't it a policeman that came?''

It was probablv the  most wonderful air duel the war has  yet seen. The British pilot reported  that several times he felt sure he  would get his adversary between his  sights, but the latter invariably wriggled out of the line of fire. The British flier himself was kept busy avoiding the German, and once he" had to  dive almost perpendicularly. The  combat did not break off until both  pilots had fairly exhausted themselves and their petrol.  'ihe world has grown familiar with  the   tales  of  air  duels,  but  probably  no one, unless he is himself an aviator,  fully grasps the marvelous  feats  which are being done every day. The  aeroplane has brought back the days  when knifthts  went    out    before  the  armies   to  engage  in  single  combat;  but whal are the deeds of those old  knights, which have filled the    pages  of. romance for    centuries,  compared  with   the duels   of  the  modern  avia-j  tors?   Whal  were  the  skillful" horse-'  manship   and   swordmanship     of   the  ancient champions compared with the  hunting of one another by bird-men  armed with machine guns, three miles  or   more  above   the   earth's   surface?  The   wildest  imaginations   of yesterday   never  conceived   anything" equal  to  what is actualy happening today.

Keep Minard's Liniment in the house  Birds Give Warning  On  the  battlefield  of France    and  Flanders   birds   overhead   give   warning of the approach of noxious fumes  of asphyxiating gas  before it is perceptible to the senses of the soldiers.  Dr.   Cabancs, says that the birds arc-  roused from their    slumbers    before  the odor of the gas has been detected  in the trenches, and at once begin to  make a confused clamor as they hastily take their.flight to the rear, thus  warning the men behind the guns to  don their gas masks and be ready for  the deadly unseen foe,  This circumstance is in accord with    the    well-  known use of a canary to delect foul  air in mines.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier s argument against conscription would  have been sound in time of  peace; but in his entire speech,  as reported in Hansard, there  is not a single word to indicate  that the empire is now engaged  in a titanic struggle against a  ruthless foe, and therein lies  the. weakness of his argument.  Canada may "as well resort to  conscription now as later on;  There are no signs of a speedy  termination of tlie wav, and if  the conflict lasts for'two pr,  three years longer, as some authorities predict, .it is a certainty that in the end she would  be compelled to adopt compulsory service or withdraw from  participation in V:.tlie''.;; war.������������������  Grand Forks Sun.      ���������  There was an incipieht stampede iti the vicinity of the Oregon -Saturday last. Some of  those who saw the ore showing  at the Oregon started locating,  and then others got the craze.  One man had to come to town  for a miners' license and mentioned it confidentially, and that  started things going.

Holland.  Hedley, B. C. July 5,1917.  " He who does me once, shame on him;  He who does me twice, shame on me."  The Liberal government was  sustained  in Saskatchewan  as  was expected.    The standing in  the legislature will be about 50  Liberals  and   7  Conservatives.  The soldiers were disfranchised.  The overwhelming Liberal majority is due to the large Metis  and  and alien-enemy vote.   Sir  Laurier is a much more astute  politician than  many give him  credit for. When a federal election is held, owing to'his stand  on conscription, he  will receive  the solid support of French Canadians,  alien enemies and the  loafers who live'-off the working   men,   while    the   Liberal  members  who  represent loyal  constituencies will be reelected  because of their -support of the  conscription measure.    It is  a  really good frame-up.    Before  the general election is held Sir  Borden can be depended upon  to get rid of the strong men in  .   his cabinet and fiill their places  with    quotiliion    leaders    and  drawing-room bric-a-brac.  It would be a  good way to  start the  second  fifty-year lap  on   our   national   journey   by  electing to the federal parliament Canadian statesman with  Canadian ideals.    It was a Tup-  per who won the Eastern provinces to confederation.    A Tup-  per in the house from the West  might have a broadening effect  cm the Western representatives.  This  is a hint that might well  receive   carefule   consideration  from the electors of Kootenay,  Yale  or Cariboo,- or even the  coast   constituencies,  provided  a broad-minded Canadian could  be induced to accept nomination  there. Canada needs statesmen,  and not politicians, at the present time.   A large number of  our federal representatives are  like a dried-up kernel; they just  rattle in the shell.   Others are  only active  at   the ^sound   of  Some day there is going to be  a coroner's jury in this town  and the verdict will be ''Manslaughter," for exceeding the'  speed limit, or failing to sound  horn before turning: a corner,  or drunk while driving.

There were over two hundred autos, it is said, at the Penticton celebration Monday. It  is only a very, few years since  Penticton was composed of  Tom Ellis, Wade, a waterfront  and a 'right-smart of landscape.  Now it is.a town visible to the  naked eye, with a town council,  passable streets, orchards, gardens, metropolitan ambitions,  live business houses, a dividend-  paying newspaper, several  booze foundrys, churches, etc.,  and still has the waterfront, all  the result of business energy,  with the-exception of the water  front.. -v-i_i:-^.

Such  whisperings have stirred the  atmosphere several times. This  time there is reasonable ground  for the suspicion that the G. N.  company does intend to put on  a daily service. In fact the announcement is made that the  service will commence Wednesday, the 11th inst., and trains  will arrive here daily going  south at 8.25 a. m. and north at  0.30 p. m.
