He has  joined up with the 7th regiment  U. S. Reserve Engineers and is  stationed at Fort Oglethorpe,  Atlanta, Georgia. His many  friends here will be pleased that  he has been privileged to fight  for world freedom aud wish  him a safe return:  Beak Sir.���������I am now a private in the 7th regiment of engineers, United States army.  Possibly I may be appointed  chaplain of this or another-regiment, but if not I am content  to serve as a 'private or will win  a commission if possible.  This regiment is stationed at  Atlanta, Ga., but will probably  be sent to France this summer.  Our work will be to rebuild the  French railways, especially  those near tho fighting line.  The bulk of the regiment is  composed of practical bridge-  men and trackmen. The officers are largely practical rail  way men. Colonel Sewell is an  ex-West Pointer who has re  entered the army after being in  private construction business.  The lieutenant-colonel is President Charles G. Djxwcs of the  Central Trust Co., one of Chicago's big banks. He is leaving  the bank'to care for itself while  he serves in this way. Mr.  Dawes' son. Rufus, was a classmate of mine at Princeton uni-  versity'in 1913. He was drowned  that summer and his father  erected-a great hotel to-give  poor men rooms at low rates as  a memorial to his son. Mr.  Dawes.' nephew and at least,  half a-dozen other I'rjncoton  men are 'in tin;- regiment a*<  privates. This regiment is a  good illustration of the untruth  of the Socialistic slander that  America's rich and educated  classes are sending jhe poor  men to the trenches and staying in safety.  Possibly sonic of our Hedley  friends may be interested in  this letter and you are. free to  use it as you see fit. Kindly remember me to all our mutual  friends in llcdley.

A number of young boys  broke into three of John Mair-  hoffer's houses last week, just  because they were boys, and  injured some of the furniture.  Constable Sproule located the  culprits.

By this route ol" old the Egyptians  inarched in their campaigns in Asia,  and by it again the Assyrians and  Persians struck at Egypt. The L'hil-  istincs who inhabited tlie country  are oue of the enigmas of history.  Some have seen in them men of the  same race as the mysterious people  (ho built the palaces of Minos in  Crete���������the founders of our western  civilization. 'Ihe part plaj ed "by  them iu the Bible, in the histories of  Samson aud David, is familiar to all.  It was in thi.s very Gaza that the last  scene of Samson's life was enacted,  and antiquarian research has revealed a curious type of temple such as  that which he brought down in ruii  ���������London Daily Mail.

On Sunday, March 4,  Dcrlin railway stations were besieged by mobs reminiscent of the  height of the summer holiday season. The iu-h on the booking offices was so violent that they had to  shut down because there were no  more tickets left. People stormed  into the trains without tickets, glad-  paying double fare at the other end  as a -penalty rather than be cheated  out of their trips. The police authorities seem to have adopted the  ruse of letting the hungry Berliners  loot, the rural districts at will, only  to pounce upon them when they arrive at the country railway stations  for the journey-back to towji. Their  "luggage," usually consisting of bulging baskets, is then ruthlessly seized,  searched-and  confiscated.  One family which had spent the  entire" day ''rounding up'" supplies  shed bitter (ears when compelled to  disgorge an entire slaughtered pig.

War with any nation is a  contingency to be avoided at almost  any cost except the cost of dishonor,  but. war with the United States appears to have an added horror of its  own, born of the. fact that those with  whom we should he fighting aro our  own, flesh and blood, speaking out  own language, having our own civilization, I feel that the pride of tin:  race to which we belong is a pride  which includes every English-speaking country in the world . . .

(Special) ���������  Among all the thousands of Canadians who praise Dodd's Kidney  Pills for the good thc3r have done,  there, is no more fervent admirer of  the great-kidney.remedy-.than Isidore  Mcrcredi, of this place:  "Yes, it always gives me pleasure  to say a good word for Dodd's Kidney Pills," Mr. Mcrcredi says. "My  wife was sick for two years. We  could not find anything to restore  her to health, _;.Thcn wc found a  pamphlet telling of several persons  who had been cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills.  "My wife used just two boxes of  them and she is perfectly-well; to the  great surprise of all our neighbors.  Tlie j- can tell you the same thing. I  cannot recommend Dodd's 'Kidney  Pills enough."  Dodd's Kidney- Pills are the greatest of all remedies for-weak, suffering women. They cure the kidneys.  The kidneys are the root of ninc-  tonths of.'.women's ills. Moreover,  cured kidneys mean pure clear blood  all over thebody. That -means good  health everywhere.' ���������   K  son   learned  at   so  not  be  forgotten,  dear teacher,"  Writing from Mesopotamia lo a  friend in Winnipeg", iu May, 1910, the  late Sir Victor llorsley says: "Our  gross failures and stupidity are, ii.  my opinion, due lo the whisky affecting the intellectual organs * and  clearness of our leaders. Of course  they do not realize that alcohol, fm  small doses, acts as a brake on their  brains. If they did then they would  have sufficient loyally to follow their  King's example."  It was no far-fetched or fanciful  declaration of Premier Lloyd Geoigc  when he said: "Alcohol is Britain's  giealcst foe."  Prof. Kracpclin, of Munich', invented an instrument for testing human  efficiency. Willi it he- proved lhat a  single glass of beer lessens a man's  efficiency by seven per cent-. and  two drinks of whisky rob him of  twcnly-llircc per cent, of his normal  power, leaving him little better than  three-fourths of a man.

Docs the" face  twitch? Do the legs tremble or drag?  These aie signs of St. Vitus Dance,  a nervous disease which is confine.!  chiefly to young children, but which  often affects highly-strung women,  and sometimes'men. St. Vitus Dance  is caused by disordered nerves, due  to poor blood, and is always cured  by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills which-fill the veins with new,  rich red blood, strengthening the nerves, and- thus drawing out the disease. Here is proof: Mrs] John A.  dimming, Lower Caledonia, N. S.,  says: "When my daughter Myrtle  was, about nine years of age she became afflicted with St. Vitus Dance.  The trouble ultimately became, so  bad that she could not hold anything  in her hands, and had to be fed like  a child. She could not even walk  across the floor without help. She  was treated for some time by a physician, but. did not show any improvement. One day a neighbor said she  had read of a case of St: Vitus Dance  cured by Dr. Williams': Pink Pills,  and w.e decided to give this niedicitic  a trial. .By the time the third box  was used there was some improvement in-her condition, and we. continued giving her the pills for about  a 'month longer when she was entirely  cured, and has not since had the  least return'of the  trouble.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can be obtained from any dealer in medicine  or bv mail at 50 cents .a box or six  boxes for $2.SO.from The Dr. 'Williams' Medicine Co.", Brockville, Ont.

But even more a traitor is tlie man who makes a million  bushels of grain into beer or whisky,  for he destroys its usefulness as effectively as if it had been burned, and  at the same time lessens the efficiency  of thousands of men at a time when  the nation needs the best efforts of  every one of its citizens.

The big 1915 grain crop of Canada  was gathered in from less than 10  per cent., of the arable land of the  Dominion. This means tliat it would  be possible to grow in Canada a  grain crop worth $8,000,000,000. The  tolal tilled area in Canada in 1915  was 37,263,000 acres.

Bui though ihe great stress is  on the Central Powers, other nations  arc   feeling   the strain.     The   smaller  neutral countries arc confronted with  food shortage and high prices.  Switzerland and Holland, in arms for defence,    feed from their    own  scanty  supply thousands    of    refugees who,  homeless  and    destitute,    have    fled  thither fqr sanctuary.   England, men-  .accd by' an ever-increasing    submarine   warfare,   is   organizing  her  agriculture on a new basis,  enlisting   for  her farms the-services of women and  disabled  soldiers,    and   putting    her  beautiful    and    historic parks    under  the plough.'    France  sows her grain  nud  reaps  her  harvest,     even  within  fhc-'sound of the guns, by the heroic  and  unceasing labor'of her old  men  women and children.  Such is- the picture of Europe al  this hour. Facing the fateful days  .which lie before us in this third and  sternest year of war we realize with  increasing clearness how vital a  factor in the final decision the food  supply must be.

There is no place in the slate  now for cither half-hearted service or  ill-founded criticism.

While the system of fines originally was ostensibly fpr the purpose of  bringing the civil population up to  the German standard of "discipline,"  system and organization, this pretext  has_ now-b'cen completely abandoned.  Forced as the Germans now arc to  realize thai they cannot hold indefinitely the occupied districts of  France and Belgium, the fine' system  is now being used for the open purpose of extorting the last "penny  while they still have it in theis, power to enforce the extortion.  At Brussels alone the lines now  being imposed are declared'to amount  lo tnillions of francs every month.  Some idea of the nature and  amount of these fines can be secured  from the following cases in towns recently retaken  by the  French.  Al Guivry, two horses were in  some mysterious manner injured in  a stable. For this four inhabitants  who knew nothing about the affair  were found guilty, and forced to pay  3,000 marks.  At Ugny-le-Gay a house was burned down by .the Germans themselves.  Nevertheless, they, charged that the  owner had set fire to the structure.  The village as a whole, was held responsible and forced to pay 10,000  marks. '  At-the.same village a civilian was  heavily fined for driving a horse  which the Germans declared was not  sufficiently currycombed. As a search  of the man's premises failed to reveal sufficient money to pay the fine,  he was given fifteen, days in prison.  Failure  in*   every instance to  produce the amount of 'cash fined by the  [ Germans  is invariably followed  either by deportation or long prison sentences. '  At -Chaiiny three prominent citizens  were" imprisoned*  An offer was  then  made  lo  release  them upon the  surrender of a  certain amount in. muni*  cipal'bonds,.      These  the   three men  finally,   secured,    whereupon the Germans      decided   ' they    wanted      the  amount demanded in  cash instead of ;  bonds, refused  to accept the    latter,  and    confined    the    three men    in a  humid  room  without  fire,    light     or  bedding and a diet of a pint of coffee in   lhc'.morning", and  a  piece     of   ���������  bread in  lhc eeventng.  The men were kept in this condition until friends succeeded in raising in the neighboring villages the  sum demanded.

Co-Ooerative  Development  Growth    of    Co-operation    Amongst  the Farmers of the West  One of the most remarkable developments iu'Western Canada wilh-  iu the last decade has - been the  growth of co-operation amongst the  farmers of that great territory. This  has expressed itself most notably in  the success''which has attended the  farmers'   own "elevator  companies.  There are-in Western Canada ihrec  such companies, organized more or  less upon co-operative principles,  with a total -membership'of 47,063  shareholders, a subscribed capital of  over $4,5O0,OU0 and a paid up capita!  of $2,250,000. These- companies operate altogether sonic 520- elevators.  Two of them paid last year an eight  per cent, dividend and the other ten  per cent.  The growth which these companies  have made during .the last ten years  can be seen from the fact that in  1906 the one company in the field  handled less than three per cent, of  the total volume of grain exported  from Western Canada, whereas in  1916 the three organizations handled  about  twenty-four "per  cent.  The first in the-field was the Grain  Growers' Grain Company which,  coming into existence in 1906, was  the first concrete expression of the  farmers' movement which had originated in Saskatchewan five years before, and was until then represented  by an educative organization? only.  In its first year, this company simply  handled grain on commission; but  since then it has-entered into practically every branch of the grain business, including operating country  elevators, terminal elevators and  port  ncss are its interests confined. It also sells livestock for its membcis,  and has entered on a considerable  scale into tlie '.handling of a large pot-  tion of the staple goods necessary  for the farmer's requirements. Last  year it handled 37j000 cars ofgroin.  In 1912 it took over the elevator system which had been inaugurated by  the government of .'Manitoba'. It has  built or acquired a large number  since, including three terminal elevators leased. ..at Fort .-'William, the  total storage capacity being over 4,-  500,000 bushels. Its livestock,depaitment, opened last March, handled  during eight months nearly 500 cars  of stock. Its ' co-operative department in 1916 sold to the company's  shareholders $27S,000 worth of ullage  tools and $1,075,000 worth of lumber,  twine, flour, apples, etc.  Jn 1911 the Saskatchewan Co-operative Elevator Company was established, and in 1913 the Alberta Cooperative Elevator Companies, each  of which has since pursued, within  its own territory greatly similar  functions; The governments of the  respective provinces gave material  assistance in the flotation of these  companies by advancing 85 per cent,  of the money necessary to build the  elevators, repayable in- 20 years by  gradual instalments. The 'Saskatchewan Company now has 230 elevators  and the Alberta 103. The Alberta  Company has also entered into the  livestock and co-operative business to  a considerable extent, having handled  last year fifteen "hundred car loads.  It has for two years bought the complete output of two lumber mills on  the Pacific coast. The co-operative  activities of the farmers of Saskatchewan have been left to the Grain  Growers' Association, but in future  they will be transferred to the elevator company.  A great merger of these three companies lias been proposed and lias  for some time been the subject of  serious consideration by their respective executives. The matter has now-  arrived at the point where the Grain  Growers' Grain Company, which operates in all three western provinces,  and the Alberla company will amalgamate with a capitalization of $5,-  000,000 under the name of "The!  United Grain Growers' Limited."  Ihe Saskatchewan Company for the  present has decided against federation. During the coming season all  ihrec companies will carry on a big  building program and it is l.ikcly_ that  between them they will erect 70 to  100 new country elevators. The Saskatchewan Company has a terminal  elevator at Port Arthur at the head j  of  Lake   Superior  which    is   Rearing)  Temper in Live Stock  Most    Useful    Animals,   are    Those  Which Possess  Temper  A well-controlled, w ell-direcied  temper is a mighty u*cli.l asset in  either man or animal. The meek  and lowly individual may be all  light in certain places���������the motive  power or driver of an ox team, for  instance���������but when it comes to real  twentieth century work, a temper is  \ cry much in demand. Kvui the  modern religious novel usually has a  fighting parson  for its  hero.  Temper might be likened to fire.  !l makes a good servant but a bad  master. \n the animai, as well as  the human world, the individual  without temper is usually lacking in  intelligence, stupid and sluggish.  Such anneals usually cannot be  handled to the best advantage. They  cannot be trained lo work properly  or to submit to human direction of  any kind. Those animals which can  ne made to serve human ends be  arc animals which possess lempe  probably a high degree of temper  Hut it is in the control of this spirit  thai there is the greatest possibility  of usefulness.

"Second, expert to foreign countries of grape wines of every kind is  permitted, regardless.,of their percentage  of  alcohol.  "Third, in wine-growing districts  lhc sale of wines produced locally,  aud not containing a percentage of  alcohol in excess of twelve degrees,  is permitted. Sales of these wines  outside of lhc wine-growing districts  is only permitted in towns, and mav  be prohibited by the municipal  authorities."

How  the  Magistrate    Succeeded  Solving a Complicated Case  The men who really govern China  and who make life happy or misei-  able for the people are the district  magistrates. There are about fifteen  hundred of them in all. These men  unite in themselves many various  offices. They arc coroners, sheriffs,  lax collectors, road sm veyors and  forest commissioners. They are superintendents of schools and overseers  of the poor, and they arc at the head  of the state religion, and worship at  the temples on specified days. Tlieie  is scarcely any mailer into which  they may noi pry and for which they  are not held responsible.  The administration of justice is in  their hands. In the court of justice  there are no juries, lawyers or men  vho are entitled lo speak for the culprit . The parties to ihe suit, whether  civil or criminal, kneel before the  es. magistrate, who, sitting in his official  r��������� chair, asks such, questions as he sees  fit, and as soon as he thinks he has  discovered the truth, brings in his  verdict. Either party may appeal  fiom his decision to a higher court,  still, as the expense of a lawsuit is  higher proportionally than in Canada, that is not often done.  Il will at once be apparent, that  such a man must possess a keen  mind, a good knowledge of human  nature, and be fertile in expedients.  Above all, he must be a man of decision; not beouisc immediate action i*  requiied, but,in order to sustain his  own dignity and command the respect  of the people. The magistrate who  hesitates is despised.  Some years ago a Chinaman who  owned a mill where he pressed oi!  f;om beans was visited by a neigl  bor who came to borrow an immense  Laskel used by the oil man to receive  the bean refuse after the oil had  been extracted. The Chinese are  cjiilc neighborly, so the request  was granted, and the neighbor, who  v'.as a miller, carried the basket home  to use for holding bran.  Time went on, and the following  fall the oil man asked for the return of the basket. To his surprise,  the miller claimed the basket as his  own. In spile of the fact thai there  w ere no witnesses, the old man went  to h\\\\ and tlie case came before the  district magistrate.  The magistrate asked each man to  tell Ii is story, which he did. Each  man also acknowledged that lie could  not produce witnesses. The magistrate recognized thai his own reputation was al stake, and also that il  was a case where a righteous decision would greatly- enhance his own  reputation.   Pie did not hesitate.  "Bring in the. basket," he said. -He/  had already idetermined in his own  mind that in all probability the oil  man was in the .right, for he felt that  no man in his senses Would be likely  to go to law about so cheap an article unless it were really his.  As soon as the basket was .'brought  in, tlie magistrate, with a severe  frown, addressed it in these, words:  "Mr. Basket, each of these two men  here in court claims you as his own  property.-.There'-are -no witnesses as  to which is telling the truth. Now I  order yrou to tell us to whicli of them  you belong. What,you remain silent!  Are yrou not aware that I am "the  magistrate of this county? If you do  not -reply at once I- shall order you  to be severely punished! Still silent!  Here, sergeant, get your paddle, turn  over this basket and give him a hundred blows!"  The underlings ."who^ were present  had great difficulty in keeping their  faces straight, but they had' to obey,  and accordingly the man who was  wont tdv use the stick for beating  unwilling witnesses, proceeded to  beat the basket. He had not delivered many blows-before the oil, which  had been concealed by the bran, began to ooze forth.  "Hold on," said the magistrate,  "that is enough! I thought 1 should  make this basket speak. It is evident that he belongs to the oil maii.  Take out the miller and give- him  five hundred blows, and you, Mr.  CHI Man, carry home your basket."

'Europe  has  long    considered     efficient road systems, as public utilities,  quite as essential  to national defence  as   to   the  civilized  life  of  its , communities.

A  Farm   Markets   Branch  Profitable  Marketing  of   Farm   Pro  ducts a Big Problem  Profitable marketing of produce is*  one of the most serious problems  confronting farm business today. It  will be doubly serious when" lhc war  comes to an end and some millions  of men turn their energies to production from the land instead of being  engaged in destruction. The prob-'  lcm is not so acute in the big farm  crops as it is in those we arc pleased  to call of lesser importance, as dairy  products, poultry products, minor  crops and even wool and live stock.  Profitable marketing of farm products is'not a problem localized to  Western'-Canada or even-the Domin--  ion. It is a problem everywhere.  But every-problem in a measure admits of solution.  In the state of Washington, at a  recent session of the legislature,  there was created a state office of  farm-markets, providing for a director of markets and assistants who  will give their time to investigation,  encouragement, development and improvement of marketing conditions.  The act-provides for an investigation  .of distribution, transportation rates,  costs of marketing, and is designed to  aid in any way the improvement -of  marketing conditions.  Canadian farmers require better  .methods of marketing. This might'  welPcbme through a Markets Branch  of the Federal Department of Agri- '  culture that would not only investigate markets at home but develop  markets abroad, that would grade  and standardize agricultural products  that ultimately Canadian farm products would be sold everywhere the  world over, the buyer knowing that  he was'getting a quality of goods in  keeping with the government grade  and standard stamped on the package. ���������       ��������� ���������    '"  A couple of weeks ago we drew  attention to -the immediate need of  government grading and standardization of agricultural products.

Wastage of Best  Blood Enormous  t   General Bridges Tells of Price Britain Has Paid for Being   - > -,  -     _     '   Unprepared^  Lieut.-General T. m". Bridges, a  member of the British high commission in an interview al Washington,  talked most, interestingly and freely  of the difficulties which had besel  England when at the beginning of the  war-she converted herself from a  peace to a war basis and began the  immense increase of her army from  a small force tc one-of the'largest in  Europe.  "The source of our greatest difficulty, said General Bridges, "was  the sending to Europe of practically  our whole trained army as an expeditionary .force.'This robbed us of  all training officers for our-mew armies and it was only through returned  wounded officers and-the withdrawal  or others that wc were able to build  the skeleton for "our new forces. At  the same time we allowed most of  our better class youths, university  men in many cases, to enter the  ranks, which withdrew them from  the officers' class and placed that responsibility on far less well equipped  persons. The wastage of the , best  blood of the nation was enormous.  "Il is.my opinion that, if il had not  been for Kitchener's immense personality, we should "have had conscription within a few months. If  Lord Robcrls'-proposal for universal  service had been enforced we should  have saved enormously, not only in  men, but in industrial efficiency The  great,majority of army officers would  have done anything to have gotten  rid of the volunteer ' system" with  which the country was at ��������� first  saddled."  General Bridges estimated eight  months'as the necessary' time to  train a division. Individual recruits,  however, may be made fit to go lo  the front in a short space of eleven  weeks, provided they are distributed  in proportions of .fifty amongst -two  hundred -trained men. War service  ���������is atjeast five limes as valuable train-"  ing- as peace service, he slated.-  "Artillery lnusl be in grcal preponderance," General Bridges said,  ^before an attack "can be initiated.'  'ihe bayonet, however, is still essential to finally rout the cnemv from  his trenches. I should estimate that  the present success on the western  Ironl is due lo a British preponderance over German artillery of at  least ihrec or four lo one. There  .is absolutely no doubl as lo the outcome of the-war; the only question  is as lo its length."  General Bridges,commented briefly  on the difficulties of making good  fighters in a democra-lic nation full of  personal freedom and lacking military experience." The French bourgeois, in the general's opinion, makes  the ideal soldier, because war has  been almost instinctive hi his blood  since  the days of Napoleon.  General Bridges praised the French  army in the highest terms and said  that there had grown up between  France and England, former enemies,  a feeling that was more than friendship and that was almost a love  match.  Irish Distrust of Each Other  A War President  Sound Judgment Is Essential to  Ultimate Success  Lincoln's idea that if he saved tlie  Union, people would forget his mistakes, but lliatif he failed to save the  Union, 10,000 angels could not turn"  aside the penalty that would descend  upon him, w:as a true estimate of a  war president's position. A sound  judgment as of the real objects of  the war is primarily essential- to ultimate success. Lincoln's judgment  was so clearly and definitely formulated that his mind easily grasped the  fundamental strategy of-���������military conquest. An English military critic has  written, within the past few months,  that the British government in the  summer of 1914 knew as little about  war as Lincoln did in the spring'of  1861, but that, after two years of file  present European conflict, he only  .wished that the .British government  had learned as much about War as  Lincoln had learned by the summer  of 1863. A successful war president  does not need to be a trained soldier;  he does not even need to have studied professionally the principles of  military science. A statesman from  civil life like the cider Pitt, or Ca-  vour or Lincoln���������and one might include Bismarck in the list���������:may so  accurately envisage the objects of a  war that no soldier may surpass him  in his grasp of the war.���������Springfield  Republican. .  Sir- Sam Saw War Coming in 1913  Sir Sam Hughes told a meeting in  Toronto that he foresaw the coming  conflict as early as 1913, and that is  why he took a party of Canadian mil-  ila officers in that year over what is  now the scene of operations. He said  further that while in Europe at that  time he took part in a conference attended by Russian, French and Brit  ish officers, at which plans for the  pending war were discussed.

The Family Quarrel That Seems Impossible to Settle  It is becoming more and more dear  [that the real source of'the Irish ciiff-  [iculty is the distrust of Irishmen for  each other. The blunders of Great  Britain in dealing with Ireland may  have been egregious and cruel, but  Englishmen and Scotsmen cannot be  blamed for the spirit of faction which  wrecks every reasonable cfforl in tlie  direction of Home Rule. The-mutual  distrust, that exists between Irishmen  is the despair of everyone .who would  like to sec the Irish question settled  forever in-a way .that would be acceptable to the people of lhat isle.  The so-called grievances arc the  more difficult of remedy in that they  are purely sentimental and not material. Tlie Irish people are not ,op-  posed; they actually enjoy more freedom today than the people of England, where the necessary' precautions against German attack diave-  scriously curtailed what would have  been deemed inalienable privileges in  time of peace. The statutes that pro  tect the rights of the tenant against  the exactions of the landlord are  much more liberal than those which  exist in Canada and the ��������� United  States. Ireland is prosperous, and  the taxation, although heavy as it is  throughout the British Isles, is most  onerous in the matter of alcohol.  That such happy conditions did not  always prevail we freely admit; but  it cannot be. denied that anything  that could be done to make Irish people happy, in a material sense, has of  leccnt years been done by the British government with the consent of  the British people.  Yet Ireland's heart is sore because  her people are asked to accept the  fact of British sovereignty- But what,  in the name of Heaven, are'the British statesmen to -do about it? Their  task is much like that of the, relative  who is compelled, in spile of himself,  to take part in a quarrel between husband and wife who are so incompatible that they desire to murder each  other. In such a case the. ordinary  solution is legal--separation, and because Air. Lloyd George has .proposed this he has been denounced as  perfidious, just as has every British  statesman who has ever tried to do  anything for Ireland. The only thing  to be done, so to speak, is to fall  back on the laws against brawding in  public. Those laws were pretty severely applied at the lime of the Sinn  Fein conspiracy' last April, but it is  safe lo say thai the same punishments would have been bestowed in  every countryr in the world, where a  body of men on half air hour's notice embarked on the slaughter of  unarmed and defenceless cilizcns.  For every one of the Sinn Fein leaders who was shot after trial by court  martial, the Sinn Feiners themselves  had ruthlessly killed at least twenty  unoffending citizens. Yet, by curious  processes of logic, British statesmen  are once more made the scapegoats.  The accusation is even made in  certain quarters that the British au-  are full grown men and women of ir^  ing the enemy at scattered points all  over the world, started the rebellion  as a species of cruel diversion. There  are fullgrown.men and women of irreproachable character in ordinary-  things, who believe this fantastic  theory. But if the Irish unfortunately  hate Englishmen, that hate, is as  nothing compared with the fear and  hatred the Ulster Irishman has for  the men of the South, or the grim  dislike', of .'the; Southern' Irishman "for  his nominal kinsmen in the North.  The Ulstcrman calls Britain perfidious .when she proposes Home":'Ru'c;  the Southern Irishman calls her perfidious for hot compelling Ulsterir.eii  to accept a government w'hich he abhors. And there you are! The best  thing that Britain can do is to continue her policy of ministering- to-the  material: welfare of the. Irish people,  in the hope that some day'all will  attain a better, frame of mind.���������-Frorri  Toronto Saturday Night.-      \       ' .  Winter Dairying is Popular  Satisfactory Season  Has   Been   Experienced in Saskatchewan  Winter dairying is each year becoming increasingly popular throughout ��������� Saskatchewan and during the  past season, though a number of  conditions have militated against developments in this branch of agriculture, a satisfactory season's business  has been done by the co-operative  creameries   of the  province.  During the past twelve months, or  for an even longer period, agricultural development of every kind has  been made particularly difficult by the  conditions which have obtained in the  labor market. While these labor conditions have had a direct bearing on  the dairying interests, a. .further cir-|  cumstance operating against any'j  marked increase in the butter output  has been the prevailing high price  for feed stuffs of all kinds, not only  have concentrates, such as grain and  commercial feed stuffs, been unusually high in price, but hay, oat  sheaves and other fodder have been  selling at prices almost unknown in  previous years.  i .

Canada Held Up  As an Example  Duke  of Connaught    Tells    London  Chamber of Commerce of Commercial Education  The Duke of Connaught who, at  the Mansion House distributed the  prizes awarded by the London Chamber of Commerce for Commercial  Education, said that the war must  lead lo the re-organization of trade.  One of the first things lo consider  was, How shall wc be able to take  our place'in' the competition which  musl"arise in commerce? During the  five years he spent in Canada he was  much impressed by the great interest  the people there took in the education . of the young, for commercial  purposes.  He did not know any more important work than the giving of suitable education to those who were going lo lake a leading part in the comniercial life of the country. In tlie  past, he ventured to think, they had  not sufficiently recognized the importance of this. They had heard���������  and he was sure they heard il with  regret���������that only twenty-five years  ago, one-half of the clerks in the city  of London were foreigners and, in  many cases, he imagined, Germans;  but he was glad to learn from Lord  Soulhwark that they were now reduced to five per cent. Our object  should be to reduce to nil. England  for the English; and if their education was up to the standard they  would get all the appointments. He  was afraid many appointments and  many works got into foreign hands  largely for want of suitable education, and he thought,^'too, that it was  for want of application.  The importance of the educational  advancement that had taken place in  the great trading centres was vast  and far-reaching. Although his profession was that of arms, nobody recognized more than he did how important it was for tlie future of the  country that education should be not  only higher in standard but should  also be suitable. It had been mentioned that in 1890 there was only  one centre in London where commercial education was given, whereas in 1913 there were 273. If they  could move on in lhat direction he  was sure that results would be of  vast national importance.  On this occasion of the Duke's  visit, he related a good story. Whenever,- he said, he had visited towns  in Canada he had been greeted with  the singing of the National Anthem  by the children. One day, struck by  the singing of some children, he had  asked the teacher what part of Canada  she  was  from.  "Illinois," she replied, with a  strong nasal twang, and added lhat  as she had come to live in Canada  she wished fully to . belong to the  Dominion, and thought her first duty  in teaching the children w"as to sec  they learned tlie, National Anthem  properly.  - Buffalo as an Asset  Dableigh���������There  don't understand.  Miss Keen���������Oh,  surely.  is    one    thing I  more than    that,'  Government Herd Now Well Worth  Over a Million Dollars  When Hon. Frank Oliver, then  Minister of the Interior, bought for  Canada a herd of wild buffalo from  Montana and set apart a great area  of-government land as a home for  these creatures, nobody raised any  strong objection, but the scheme was  quite generally regarded as a bit  Quixotic. It was very well to try to  preserve the noble bos Americanus  irom-extinction, but nobody could  guarantee that rounding-up, transportation and subsequent semi-captivity  iii a great public park would not be  the death of the Whole herd. But  739 buffalo were bought and were delivered at an appointed spot within  Canada. That was eight years ago.  Today there are about 2,500 buffalo  in the big park at Wainwright, Alta.,  and about 135 in Elk.Island Park, in  the same province. The animals arc  in good condition and the increase in  their numbers has never been interrupted. In March, 1915, :he total  number in the Wainwright park was  1,640. Thus it is seen that in the  last two years the increase has been  considerably greater than the whole  original herd.  The buffalo that were bought' cost  the government about $250 a head,  delivered. As the government has a  uionoply of these creatures today it1  is not easy to say just��������� what they are  worth. But it is certain that thev  have a very special value even from  an economic point of view, for buffalo robes and buffalo heads command very high prices, and buffalo  meat, is a great delicacy. The living  buffalo is in constant demand for  zoological collections, throughout the  world. All persons who take an interest in such matters seem to agree  that the price paid in 1909 was no  more than a fair one. Even assuming sthat buffaloes are the one exception to the rule of advancing- prices  and that they arc of the same value  as were those of eight years ago, it  will be seen that the existing herd is  well worth over a million dollars and  that at this time the. natural increase  tepresents a value of over $150,000 a  year.���������From the Montreal Journal of  Commerce.  From London to Bagdad  British Success Ends German Dream  of" Control in the East  It is'reported that when the Kaiser  was informed that Bagdad had fallen  to the arms of the British he flew  into a towering rage, and ordered  Enver Pasha to be sent for, but that  despol of the Bosphorus refused to  budge from his rendezvous on the  Golden Horn until the Emperor of  Germany promised lo fool the biggest loan that Turkey has yet presented to the Geiniun people. "Bagdad has fallen," Enver Pasha is re-  porled to have said, "because we hue'  not the money to carry on the manufacture   of  munitions."  On his arrival at Berlin, Enver  Pasha supplemented his requesL by  pointing out that Great Britain was  financing her allies, and Germany  must go on doing the same for hei  .allies otherwise there would be a  separate peace, with fatal consequences to the Teutonic dream for  the Balkans'and Constantinople.  In the meantime so assured arc  the people of Bagdad as to the per-  ,-mr.nence of their new masters that  old firms that had closed down busi  ncss with the occupation of the city  by military troops have - reopened  them. The Roman Catholic Archbishop, Monsignor John Drure, ' has  ananged to lake charge of his spiritual children, and been blessed by  the Pope as well as congratulated  upon the return of settled government.  In a.n interview lhat the Archbishop gave a London piessman, he  staled that there could be no doubt  but what the Germans had made excellent plans for the Berlin-Bagdad  railroad, and lhat il would have been  a financial success. "The country  is ripe for the hand of .enterprise  from the West." 1-le hoped, however, that the line would be controlled by an international board with  its headquarters in London. "There  will be seen passengers alighting at  Charing Cross and leaving from thai  termini to Bagdad, instead of from  Berlin."  The Archbishop has l36 passports  entitling him to travel by land and  sea lo Bagdad, but the presence of  the enemy's submarines in the Mediterranean have so far compelled him  to remain al Rome.  Organization for Marketing  Sentiment   Obtaining    Strong    Hold  Among Farmers of Canada.  In his book "Rural Denmark" Sir  H. Rider Haggard says: "Whatever  'else may- be doubtful or open to argument in connection with Danish  agriculture one thing remains clear,  namely, that it Owes the greater parr  of. such prosperity as it ^possesses to  the working of the co-operative  movement." On the same page he  points out that. in. Great'-Britain, cooperation'for the sale "of produce is  still in its infancy. That was fottr  ycars ago. Had Sir Rider-been writing on co-operation today he might  have made a similar, statement in regard to Canada. The people of Canada, like the people of Great Britain,  do not rush into far-reaching reforms  even after they are convinced of the  weakness of the old system. Of the  people of Denmark more than ninety-five per cent, were born in the  country. It is easier for them than  for a mixed population, widely scattered, to follow a new lead. Co-operation must, wait for a strong pop  ular sentiment. That sentiment is  getting a hold in Canada and is being followed by organization, confidence, and loyalty, all of which are  necessary to a permanent success.  It is easier to organize the producers of a single crop than of many  crops. The wheat raisers of the Prairie Provinces have found it comparatively easy to develop and maintain a strong marketing organization-  Upwards of four thousand egg producers last year sold more than one  million dozens of eggs and a large  quantity of poultry for a net valuation considerably exceeding $300,000.  Twenty-six associations of sheep  raisers disposed of almost a million  and three-quarters pounds of wool  at a valuation of more than half a  million dollars. Fruit growers in  several previnces sold their fruit  co-operatively. In the west particularly live stock men are agitating for  better marketing facilities. Those  working towards this end, and indeed any who are endeavoring to  solve the marketing problem, will find  helpful information in the April number o'f The Agricultural Gazette containing a symposium by responsible  officers of the methods of organization for marketing existing in the  several provinces.  More Poultry and  Eggs Needed  Live  Stock Branch    Making    Every  Endeavor to Bring About Increased Production  In connection with the work earned "on under the Markets Policy of  the Live Stock Branch it has been  learned with assurance that there is  great room for profitable development in the poultry industry of Can'  ada. What is needed is a greatly increased production of such a quantity and quality as is desired by the  British market. Owing to scarcity of  food last year, the poultry stock of  the country was greatly reduced, but  with the cleaning out of many poultry flocks much inferior stock was  got rid of, which opens-the way for  many lo begin on right lines. The  shortage in the actual' number of  birds kept may be overcome to some  extent if those, who have charge of  poultry will use diligence and judgment in making the most of their'opportunities this year. The officers of  this branch in the various provinces,  who are in close touch with the poultry industry, give the assurance that ���������  there is a better sentiment prevailing  on Ihe part of farmers generally with  respect to the poultry business than  ever before. Indications point to a  much larger distribution of eggs for  hatching and day-old chicks of im-  pioved stock than usual.  Canada has all the requisites for  the production of a quantity far in ,  excess of her own requirements, and  with her favorable climatic conditions,  can, with proper care and attention,  produce quality equal to the best in  the world. Only the fringe of pro-,  duction possibilities has been touched up to the present. The western ���������  provinces, with their volume of cheap  feed, arc the natural home for the  Canadian hen. The bulk of the surplus at the present time comes from  the provinces of'Ontario, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. -New  Brunswick and Quebec do not produce sufficient for their own requirements. These provinces must and  will,do more. Il remains principally'  for Ontario, Prince Edward Island  and the western provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta lo  demonstrate to the rest of Canada  and the Empire as a whole wdiat they  can do in this connection in this  great hour of trade expansion.  According to the last census, Canada had some 29,000,000 hens; a lew  more, in fact, than the single state  of IOwa. There may be possibly  forty or fifty million hens in Canada  at the present time. In order to  meet our obligations and live up to  our opportunities in the. matter, the  slogan of every poullryman should  be "150,000,000 hens for Canada in  two years." How can it be done?  Is. it not possible in this country to  create in the minds of producers generally the steadfast impression and  belief that this development is'going  to be brought about, and to enlist  the active services of every breeder  and distributor of pure-bred poultry  in a big national production campaign?  The Live Stock Branch through  the Poultry Division is doing all that  it can, through its various connections, to bring about the increase in  production and the improvement in  quality/necessary to lake the greatest  possible advantage of our present opportunities. The organization of Cooperative Marketing Associations is  being pressed more vigorously than  ever before. The importance of increased production is being emphasized at every opportunity,, and arrangements are being made whereby,  a very decided improvement in quality, particularly of western eggs, will  be brought about this yrear.���������W.A.

And so, when Mabin came downstairs with a washed and renovated  Julius, they were admitted under  stern promise of discretion, and  found the invalid propped up in an  armchair, flushed, hut virtuously  calm as far as appearances went.  "Well, old chap," was his greeting  lo the boy, who walked forward with  ci.reful avoidance of undue haste,  "so you've been cheating the railway  company, I hear?"  "Mabin's pwomised the p'yiccman  lo pay him tomowwow," replied Julius with dignity. "And she says  I'm .to say I'm sowwy I wan away'  w-ivouL telling-you.

"I'll forgive you anything  for having the good taste to run  away���������from me���������to���������" he looked up  archly over the boy's head at the.  girl standing behind��������� "to.

"Papa," he said, "why don't you  make Mabin live wiv us, wiv you and  me���������a'ways?" -  Ciprian's eyres travelled slowly from  the boy to the woman once , more,  and such a longing shone but of them  -that Mabin, turning - abruptly away  with agony in her heart, retreated towards the door, leaving father and  son  alone  together.  Out of the confusion aud misery-  she was suffering she decided upon  one thing to be done at once; she  must telegraph to Lord Moorhamp-  ton-the news of the safe arrival of  Julius, saying nothing about his  father.  She knew that the viscount would  certainly travel to London immediately on receipt of this message, and  once in the house, he could be told  everything. Aud perhaps, after all,  things would not be so bad as they  feared. At the worst Ciprian."-was  safe while he was ill, and in the meantime advice could be taken, and preparations made  for. his   defence.

So'she went'herself to the tele-'  graph office, where she learned that  the 'message would be delivered ' at  Heath Hill on the following morning.  Aud then, returning to the omaison-  clt'c, she found thai the nurse had. arrived, that Ciprian had been installed  in Mrs; Wrest's room,, and that the  doctor  wras gone  for the night.  Poor little Julius wras curled up  asleep on the sofa in the sitting room  and only Avoke up,just sufficiently to  allow himself to be undressed and  put to bed..  On the following morning Mabin  got an answer to her telegram. It  was from Lord Moorhamptoii himself and it announced that lie was on  his way'-to town:  In the meantime the good news  had come from the sick room that  Ciprian had had a good night, that  his temperature had gone down to  little above the normal, and that .he  had' asked  to sec his son.  Julius, .however, was making up for  the fatigues of the journey. by a  night's rest that 'extended well into  the day, and when Lord Moorhamptoii arrived, Mabin was sitting alone  in the sitting room.  She was very nervous on meeting  him, but she had the satisfaction of  seeing that he looked quite benevolent, and that, though there was gravity in his ."maimer, there was no reproach. , -.  "So I hear, Miss Wrest, that y-ou  were, the magnet lo draw tlie" boy  avay!" he said when he had shaken  hands  with her.  "I'm very sorry, very" sorry indeed. I never guessed " she began.   _      '  He interrupted her. \  "Well, well, that's over now. I'm  thankful he is safe, after all our anxiety.    .Is he.well?"  "Quite well, but he's asleep. Tired  out, I think. The little monkey  travelled up under the seat of a railway  carriage."  "So I heard," said Lord Moorhamptoii smiling. Then he became  grave again. "Unfortunately", I have  had other anxieties besides the boy's  "disappearance."  Mabin's heart beat fast, but' she  said nothing. After a moment's  pause he raised his head suddenly  and inquired: .  "Whose voice is thai I hear���������in the  next room?"  Mabiu rose hastily, clasping her  hands.  Before she could prevent him, he  had opened the door between the  two rooms, and was iu the presence  of  his  son.  The meeting between the two men  was affecting by reason of the reticence of both. With a few w-ords of  apology Lord Moorhampton dismissed the nurse, and sat down by Ciprian's bedside. Mabin remained in  the sitting room, with tlie door wide  open between the two rooms.  "We owe something to that little  girl, Ciprian," said the viscount in a  gentle  tone.  "By Jove, yes," said the invalid  with a smile at Mabin, whom he  could see from where he lay.  "And   I   have  something  to   apologize  for,"   continued   the? viscount  in  a  tone  that was almost humble.    "I  have been too lenient, I have put up  j wilh   too  much.  I   have  ignored    too  j much."    He turned  to  the door between the two rooms.    "Aliss Wrest,  will   you   come in?"   he   said.       "We  have  no  secrets from  you,  I   think."  But   Mabiu   was   hy   this   lime   engaged with Julius, who had just come  into   the  room, and  was   clinging    to  her skirts.    She led him forward, and  his\grandfather,  with  much   emotion,  took\ him   on  his   knee   and     scolded  him 'for   running   away.  Dibs   hung  his  head.  "I   wanted  Mabin," said   he, ./'And  I   didn't  yike   Unlcoo  joe."  Mabin and Ciprian looked si.-.riled  at the name.  Lord Moorhainpion looked very-  grave.  "I've sent, him away," he. said  sternly.  An exclamation of joy broke from  Mabin's  lips.  Ciprian struggled up  to his  elbow.  "You've-���������sent      him���������away?"      he  cried.     "Then���������he  wasn't dead?"  "Not a bit of it. He was shanf-  ming���������ife was afraid of you."  "Me had no need lo be. One  doesn't hit a man when he's down,"  said Ciprian, hoarsely.

"I'm glad your  eyes have been opened, though 1  know it must have entailed a hard  wrench. As for me, I can't come  back to iJcath Hill���������unless 1 enmc  back���������with a wife." *  ; lie glanced significantly "at Alabin,  Who was standing jr.sl within the  ��������� door,  silent and fearful.

This  is the first lime that anything HI:  this has been held in the west-on a  large scale. The prizes anioui ting-  to $'100 are lo be divided equally between Regina and Saskatoon, and are  given by the Swine Breeders' Association of Saskatchewan. These fairs  are being held under the auspices of  the Saskatchewan Live Slock Board,  lhc one in Regina being from November 27 lo November 30. and lhat  at Saskatoon December 4 to December 7 inclusive. The pigs will be judged by the usual market standards.  None will be eligible for entry which  is more than eight months old. Each  contestant will be limited to one en-  try.' The association pays Lranspoit  charges from points in Saskatchewan  aud in case the. exhibitor canno'l,accompany his animal the association  will look after its feeding, and if requested sell it at the close of the  fair to the best 'possible advantage.  The same animal cannot be shown  both al Regina and Saskatoon, but  an exhibitor may show diffen-nl animals at both places.  Irrigation Convention  To  Assist Co-operation Between the  Producers of the Western  Provinces  Arrangements  arc  being   made  for  the. eleventh annual convention of the  Western.   Canada   Irrigation  Associa--  tion lo, be held at Maple Creek, August   1   lo 3.     The  program  will ��������� ���������include the presentation and discussion  of   the  following    subjects:''   Alfalfa  and clover crops';  Sheep raising; Co- .  operaiive...creamcrics;    Water  supply  from  wells for irrigation and domestic supply;  Construction and maintenance of irrigation reservoirs;  Introduction  of fish     to   irrigation , reservoirs.  On all of lhc above subjects addresses will be given by speakers of  recognized authority, though the  speakers have not in every case been -  secured, there is no doubt but ' the  foremost men in lhc various branches  will be present. A subject of vital  importance that will occupy the attention of the convention is Inter-  piovincial Co-operation, which will  have a speaker from each of ��������� the  three provinces, British Columbia, -  Alberta and Saskatchewan. For  some time there has been felt that a  great measure of co-operation between the producers of lhc western  provinces should be attained and as  the Irrigation Association is the only-  existing association covering the.  three provinces, it seems to be the  logical vehicle to use in putting the-  movement before the farmers and  fiuit raisers.  on  ".Is-your boy Josh helping you  lhc  fariu?"

Many wlioso eyos were- failing  eay .they liavo had their eyes restored  and many who once wore glasses say  they have thrown them away. One  man says, after using- It: "I was almost blind. Could not seer to read at  all. Now I can read everything- without my glasses, 'and my eyes do not  hurt any more. At night they would  pain dreadfully. Now they feci fine all  the tlme._ It was like a miracle to me."  A lady who used it says: "The atmosphere seemed hazy with or withoutf  glasses, but after using this prescription for fifteen days everything seems  clear. I can read even fine print with- I  out glasses." Another who used It  Bays: "1 was bothered witli eye strain  caused by overtvorlced, tired eyes wliich  Induced fierce headaches. I have worn  Classes for several years, both for distance and work, and without them, I  could not read ray own name, on an  envelope or tlie typewriting on tlie  machine before me. I can do botli now,-  end have discarded my long distance  glasses altogetlior. I can count the  fluttering leaves on Iho trees across the  Btreet now, which for several years  have looked like a dim green blur to  me. - I cannot express my joy at what  it has done for me."  It is believed tliat thousands who  *(vear glasses can now discard them in  a reasonable lime, and multitudes more  will be able to strengthen their eyes  bo as to bo spared the trouble and expense of ever getting glasses.  Dr. Beck, an eye specialist of 'nearly  twenty years practice, says: "A patient  came to mo who waas suffering from  Blepharitis Marginalls ' witli all the  concomitant ' symptoms, as morning  agglutination o������ the lias, chronic con  junctivitis and rphipliora.

Dr. Smith, an oculist'of wide experience, nays: "S. have treated in private"  practice a number of serious opthalmic  diseases with Bon-Opto and am able to  report ultimate rec'overy*in bolli.ficule  and chronic cases. Mr. B. came to my  odlce suffering" with an infected eye.  The condition was so serious that an  cperation for enucleation seemed imperative. Before resorting to the  operative treatment I prescribed Bon-  Opto and in 24 hours tho secretion had  lessened, Inflammatory symptoms began to subside, and in seven days the  eye was cured ,and retained its normal vision. Another case of extreme  convergent strabismus (cross eyes)  escaped the surgeon's knife by the  timely use of your .collyrium. The  tightened external muscles yielded to  the soothing and anodyne effects of  Bon-Opto. I always instil Bon-Opto  after removal of foreign bodies and  apply It locally to all burns, ulcers  and spots on tho eyeball or tho lids  for its therapeutic effect. By cloans-"  ing the lids of secretions and acting  as a tonic for tlie eyeball itself the  vision Is rendered more acute, hence  the number of cases of discarded  glasses." ,  Dr. Conner says:    "My eyes were  in  bad.   condition,   owing   to   the   aevere  '-���������U-pin arPing from, protracted mlcro-  ���������jcopiLal re'.careli work, Bon-Opto used  ncoiding lo dnectlom rendered n sur-  ]ii iMiig service.

Drop one Bon-Opto tablet lu  a fourth of a glass of water and let it  dissolve. With this liquid bathe the  ,eyes two to four times daily. You  should notice your eyes clear up perceptibly right from tlio start, and inflammation and redness will quickly  disappear. If your eyes bother you  even a littlo it is your duty to take  steps to save them now before it ia  too late.

Don't be too hard on the  boys during the holidays. There  is an inexhaustible supply of  energy in the average boy that  must find vent or he will explode. Mothers cannot understand this because they never  were boys, and all the fathers  now living were of the exemplary kind that sat around, twiddling their fingers and really  took great pleasure in reciting  the shorter catechism. Let the  boys run wild during the holidays. They will wash in the  swimming    pool,    fish,    chase  ground-hogs,   rob   bees'   nests,  ill rattlers,   climb  trees   and  ppm,e home very tired at night.  3.50  4.25  4.75  2.50  3.75  3.75  2.10  3.75  3.75  7.00  3.75  3.75  P. |Eaton '.      4.00  G.
