On Tuesday afternoon  a lire  started  near  the river at  the  upper end of the Similkameen  Development   company's   land  and before dark  it had spread  to the top of- tho mountain and  covered aif area Jof about five  miles.    About  10 "o'clock in the  evening it was a most-beautiful  sight.    Although <it was in full  view of the town- most  everybody took a  trip; up the  river'  in  cars "to  have   a  look  at  it  ~It continued to  burn till"toward- morning' when''  the  wind  shifted and. drove it  back over the mountain, where  it is  still. burning fiercely and  will  until  rain  comes.    If the  wind had not changed .the people on  the  other   side   of  the  river wer6 in  great danger, as  everything  is  so   dry. but   we  hope the worst is over.  Mrs. A.

HLJut-m^i/imumwj,, i-.^p^  saS  Hughes   may  have  misunderstood Sir Robert Borden and Sir T. White when they  spoke'to him with regard to re-  crtiitmg in Canada, bub the fact  remainsjhat the voluntary system in Canada only-failed when  the late minister of militia was  dismissed unceremoniously from  the cabinet.   Sir Sam may have  many failings, but he has done  more for the empire in the matter  of getting a   big  army together than   any   oilier man in  Canada could have done at that  time.    The   attempt to belittle  his services to  the  empire and  his   organization   ability   is   a  piece of flagrant iugratitude. If  Sir  Robert  Borden   would   be  well advised he  would   put Sir  Sam back on  the: job, and then  turn a deaf ear to the tradiicers  who forced the dismissal of the  former   minister   of   militia.-  Ladysmith Chronicle.  -A   correspondent  to know when   the  N  wouJel   like  election in  e-wcastlc* district* will, bci held.

His mother  lives in England. He left here  with the 54-th battalion.  Sunday evening  Paiker Williams  and E. H. S. Winn of the  Compensation Board addressed  a meeting in Miners' Union hall.  Owing to insufficient-notice the  attendance   was   small.     They  were to have been  at the'.mine  at   noon,   but  failed   to ��������� 'make  connections.        *Mr.      Williams  opened the meeting. His speech  dealt principally with the necessity for the present  Act, citing  some  of  his   experiences  as  a  coal  miner,  in   wliich   he  confessed to  have  been the direct  cause of the untimely demise of  a mine  mule.    Mr. Winn  dealt  more    particularly    with     the  practical   working  of the  Act.  -Notify    employer immediately  after accident; see doctor  and  have him send  report to board;  you    cannot    change    doctors  without consent of Board; if off  work   more than   three   days  send  Board   your  claim   form  promptly,^ doctor required   by  law to assist you in  completing  your claim without charge; any  act    which    retards    recovery  jeopardizes your claim; no compensation allowed when'arising,  out of and in the course of your  employment.     About*    $550,000  have, been  collected  under-the  act; 6400 claims have been dealt  with, and the average of claims  received daily is  between forty  anel fifty.    George Stevens was  chairman.     G. P. Jones   moved  and G. McEachern  seconded  a  vote of tlmiiks to the speakers.  This week Mrs. Knowles-received by post the military  medal Avon by her son, Lieut.  T. C. Knowles. On one side of  the medal lis the king's head in  relief, and on the other " For  Bravery in the Field." On the  edge is the name and rank of  the person decorated.  The C. N. officials and railway  inspector, when here laot week,  said   the   people  of Keremeos  were well satisfied with the triweekly service, and  when they^  wont   to    Keremeos   the   next "'  morning they   said the  people  of Hedley  also  would be satisfied with the tri-weekly service.  Such  a  course   was   to   be   expected   from   railway   officials,  but that the railway inspector,  an employee of the government,  should be a party to such a subterfuge  is   difficult  to   believe.  The   railway  inspector  "should  visit " communities    interested,  without a bodyguard of railway!  officials, who  aro  paid to place  the company's  interests  in the  best  possible  light,    regardless  of public necessities.  The French-Canadian.  It.has frequently been pointed  out that French-Canadians en  listed fairly well in all provinces  except* Quebec.  A French-Canadian member  from New Brunswick, Mr. Robi-  doux, voted for the Military  Service Bill: the only French-  Conservative member iu Ontario, Dr. Chabot, spoke for the  bill and would have vottd for  it were he not paired with Hon."  Dr. Belaud, now a prisoner of  war in Germany. He was urged  to vote anyway on the ground  that Dr. Behind himself would  vote for it were he here; but he  respected the pair'" he made.  The only French-Canadian  member from Saskatchewan, a :*  Liberal, Mr. Champagne, voted  for the bill.  This all indicates that the  trouble is with Quebec province, rather than with the  French-Canadiau as such. Removed from., the Quebec environment, the French-Canadian  appears "to better advantage.  :il  i mii-iiiiiiiuiiiiiitiimnniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisiiiiiiitiiiniliil  mm ���������*^?IlW^^T'!-! ���������������������������"?'"*',"���������'"ij^^T^^*-1"^! ��������� *, i  I'HE      GAZETTE.

The Exhibition, which will be tlie  largest ever attempted here, will not  only bring together all of the finest  breeds of livestock, the best-of agricultural products, the fastest of harness horses, the best dogs, rarest  flowers, and greatest bronco riders,  but will provide entertainment anel  education for all classes of people.  The Stampede, which will be bigger and belter than last year, will be.  under the* direction of Ad. P. Day,  of Medicine Hat, the man who made  ihe last Stampede . The harness  races will be under the auspices of  the Western Canada Fair Association, and the livestock, dog and flower shows will be governed by the  same regulations as those governing  the best shows of these types.  Ample accommodation at fixed and  reasonable prices has been provided  for any number of visitors, one way  round trip fares have been secured  from the railways, and all plans completed to make the fair the finest  four day outing that could be found  anywhere.

Mr.  Duff tells  of his  illness  and   cure as  follows:   "About  four  years     ago     I  was   attacked  with   la  grippe    which  left'me in a condition difficult to describe.   I   was   attacked  with   general  weakness,  and  a  constant dull    pain  in  the   stomach.   I   became   so  weak  that  I   coulej. not' walk    a    hundred  yards  without   sitting  clown   to  rest.  The food 1 ate continually soured on  my  stomach.

After  three  months   attendance,  and  fee-ling  no  belter   f   called  in  another doctor.   His  treatment also  failed   to  help  me,  and   f   tried  a  third  doctor.   Tliis   one    said    there*  lias   nothing  wrong  with   my     heart  that the trouble was clue to my stomach.

He es-  timateel the total casualties of the wai  to be "in excess of the population of  the United Kingdom. (The pop'ula-  tion of the.

Thcse_ seven men who matter are  ".the prime minister, David Lloyd  Geofgc; the money minister, Andrew  Bo liar Law; the labor minister, Arthur Henderson; the two empire  ministers, Lord Curzou and 'Lord  Milncr, and. two fighting chiefs, .Sir  John Jellicoc and Sir William Robertson.  They sit in a plain room, behind a  dingy front, in one of the shortest  unci greyest little streets in England.  In a room at No. 10 Downing street,  the brain of the British war executive  is constantly at work.  There is the war brain of the Russian, troops over in Petrograd; there  is the war brain of France in Paris;  there is the army direction of the  mountain fighters of Italy in Rome,  tiie city of the seven hills; but this  one war direction brain is respected  and spoken of as more important  than all.  Lloyd-George presides, and he, with  Bonar Law, Arthur "Henderson, and  Lord Curzon and Lord Milncr form  the*war cabinet. The other two who  make the seven arc Admiral Sir John  Jellicoc, of tlie navy and General Sir  William Robertson of the army. Adr  miral Jellicoc is the first sea lord and  naval head of the admiralty; General  Robertson is the chief of the imperial  staff and military head of the army.  'rile great war brain is well supplied with nerves which link up with  the fighting machines all over Europe  and across the deserts of Africa and  by the borders of the Tigris and the  Euphrates, where some of its forces  arc fighting close by the ancient siies  of Babylon and Nineveh.  The seven sit nearly every day in  conference; the five sit every day. In  both cases ikcy arc able to call in  men ,vho know various sections of all  the various departments connected  -with fighting" on the sea, on the land,  or in the air. If the British war cabinet has to consider the striking of  a blow in some new theatre of war,  the five meet at * No. 10 Downing  street. Admiral Jellicoc hurries  across from the admiralty, in naval  uniform and peak cap and carrying  despatch boxcs| General Robertson  hurries across Whitehall from the  war office.    The council is complete.  The prime minister, seated at the,  head of the table says:  "We want to do so and so in such  anel such a region.",  General Robertson replies that he  can spare so many hundreds of thousands of troops to carry out this new-  phase of the war.  Can they be fed? Instantly, with  the ease of a man reaching down a  hat from a peg, a profound expert on  the rationing of great armies is  brought in.  "In how many days can you provide the food for say, a quarter of a  million of men at such'and such a  place, so many hundred miles from  any big source of food supply?"  Clearly .and quickly the answer is  given. ��������� ������  Can that number of men be transported to that place by sea? Admiral  Jellicoc looks after that. With his  fellow experts at his "beck and call,  he informs the cabinet, with marvelous speed how many transports it  will require, how many* transport'  ships there arc available, how many  of-the German submarines have been  destroyed in 'that particular region,  and what measures are ready to make  the voyage of armies across the water almost as safe as a trip on a penny  steamer to Kew Gardens on a summer afternoon.  ,Are there rifles, ammunition, field  grenades, steel rails, tanks, trench  timber, leather, iron, copper, explosives and other engines and instruments of war ready in sufficient quantity for the equipment of * such a  force? Instantly experts who have  spent a lifetime in equipping armies  and great masters in the science of  ordnance and heads of vast munition  factories are called into council.  Thus the new blow is decided upon  and all is got ready in smoothness  and silence behind the scenes.  Sometimes decisions made and  consultations carried on by the seven are of such profound importance  that the enemy would give untold  gold to know what goes on in the  plain room in Downing street. Sir  Douglas Haig and General Nivclle'  have been seen at 10 Downing street  when nearly the whole world thought  they were in Prance.  Sir Douglas Haig can be in ihe  neighborhood of the trenches in the  face'of the enemy at 6 a.m. and in  secret conclave with the British war  cabinet at 3 p.m. the same afternoon.  Not until he has gone-back, and has  arirved safely at headquarters in  Prance   does     the     government    an-  hc  nouncc iu the daily papers  that  has been here.  The prime minister has been about  a quarter of a century in parliament,  and has held one great office after  another in British cabinets. Bonar  Law is reckoned the most trifled debater in parliament, and is now lead-  er of the house of commons     Lord [a VERY CRITICAL TIME  AHEAD   FOR  THE   ALLIES  Curzon has been viceroy of India,  rftTcr of 200,000,000 or 300,000,000 people. Lord Milner was an expert on  taxation and inland revenue before he  went out to do imperial work which  led to the establishment of the Union  of South Africa under British rule.  Arthur Henderson became labor ad  viser to the government under Mr  Asquith; now "he is the labor member of the war cabinet.  Admiral Jelilcoe commanded the  fleet which secured the safe transport of 7,000,000 by sea.  ��������� General Sir William Robertson,  chief of the imperial staff, has risen  from the lowest rank in the British  army to the high position he now  holds.

Great Boer. Leader Gives Clear  Cut  Reason Why South Africa  Fights For Britain  General- Jan Christian Smuts of  South Africa, speaking at an Empire  day celebration at Stepney, said:  "I am a barbarian 'from the veldt,  a Boer who fought for three years  against you when you were very  wrong indeed-.  "However, we have helped to convert you and win you back to the  right road of freedom and /liberty,  and on that road you are now making the biggest struggle of your  whole history. I am fighting with  you, and not 1 alone, but thousands  of my old companions of the Bocr  war.  "What has brought these men into  the struggle? I do not think it is love  of the British Empire. It is that they  feel what you all feel���������that the greal -  est, the most precious and most spiritual forces of the human race arc  at slake.  "Either we arc going into the  future under the������. drill sergeant on  Prussian lines, or'we shall move forward as free men and women. It  is not the baalc of the British Isles  or the -Bntrslr Umpire, it's the battle  of the world. And when success i.s  achieved 1 hope wc may be all happy to know that wc fought for lasting peace for mankind-"-and that for  centuries wars will not be heard of  again on earth."  General Smuts said he was much  amazed on visiting a certain South  African camp to find South Africans  who could not speak a word of English. It was difficult for them lo understand words of command. When  these difficulties were considered it  was truly wonderful to think of the  splendid services these men had rendered to the empire. To him, it was  a wonderful thing���������English,_ Dutch  and South Africans uniting iu order  lo lay on the altar the best they could  give for the good cause.  It was a great privilege to live in  such times, and to lake part in this  great struggle for humanity.  Iu six months time we shall know  the best or the worst.  The best'will be that, tlie spring  summer and early autumn offensive  of the Allies will have fatally crushed  Germany and made her complete defeat only a matter, of a few weeks;  the worst will be that Germany, by  averting a heavily punishing battle  by systematic retreat, will have deferred the allied hope of victory until  a future time not strictly to be defined.  What is eminently true is that the  progress which the Allies make before the winter rain and snow limit  active warfare will prc-detcrminc the  duration of the  present conflict.  In_six mouths' time we shall know  the results of the submarine campaign, and how far short of his aim  of starving us out the enemy has fallen. Alternatively, we shall know to  what extent the Germans have-stemmed the progress of starvation-- in  their own midst. The next six months  indeed, arc pregnant with tin* fate of  Ettrope. ~  The Germans realize the significance of the half year ahead . They  feel that what happens then may settle their destiny. History has no  more vivid example of a nation fearful of disaster than Germany today,  apprehending the probable consequences of the next six months.  By every ounce of energy iu her  composition Germany will strive to  survive the coming spring, summer  and autumn. After then the prospect  is still dark as ever, for Germany is  iu the position of .1 gambler who  wastes his entire subsiancr. believing  thai if he can only last out long  enough his luck is bound' to tnrn."  "But let bix moiit-hs pass," argues  the enemy, "and who knows 11 hat untoward events may occur in the Allied camp; the unexpeclcel is always  happening, and who, two years ago,  would dare to have piophcaicd the  end of czarisiu?"

If  the campaign is successful, all is well;  if the results falsify his hopes, then,  should he be still unbeaten on land,  he will have yet another opportunity  for a further throw of the dice.  Ou the other hand time is no longer on the side of the Allies in tho  sense that it was when the Entente  powers were mobilizing e their resources. Food and finance now must  be taken into consideration, and it is  clearly to the Allies' advantage that  they should ahcieve their purpose as  quickly-as possible.  Had the Germans elected to stand  on the battered line of thc'Sommc,  we could safely, have prophesied victory for the Allies by the end of the  year, for Haig- -would have broken  their front and routed them,' very  much the same as General Maude's  .troops routed the Turks on ihe Tigris.  The Germans knew what was com*  ing for them, and they quit in time.  Refusing battle they have delayed the  issue, and there is no telling when  and where they will stand to meet  the assault of the Franco-British armies, or when and where Hindenburjf  will use the manoeuvring mass, accumulated from the divisions released by the shortening of his line, and  destined to be employed as the last  desperate expedient against the Allies .  _ But, sooner or later, within the next  six months, the Germans will ba  brought definitely to bay, and tested  iu a battle several times more violent  than that which cost them six hundred thousand casualties on the  Somme, and, compared to which even Verdun itself may look a mere episode.  Some lime before this summer this  battle will  be fought.

The War and Socialism  The. war has advanced socialistic;  doctrines. It has clone more than all  the movements of peace times to rebuff and control and weaken what  ihe socialists call the capitalistic element.  Nevertheless, the bitterest opponents of the war arc our socialistic  leaders. They are less reconciled than  the so-called pro-Germans. Why?  There is a possible explanation. The  agitation of socialistic doctrines provided many men with professions,  with livelihood. Their profit was in  an established order in which agitation could be continued endlessly.  Their profit was disturbed or threatened where agitation had nothing  against which;to agitate. The world  is moving too fast along their own  lines for them' to adjust themselves.  We find them now our most vociferous reactionaries.-���������Detroit Journal.

The merits ot  the German    soldier  were   his absolute    obedience,    absolute sacrifice, devotion to ihe King of  J':ussia and   Kaiser,  subservience    to  his officer in all respects, suppression  of  his   personal     initiation���������in     fact,  perfection as a human machine. These  characteristics had.been  fully    developed in'tlie Prussian soldier; and the  natural tendency of the Kaiscrdom of  Gei many  has  been    to    stamp      the  Prussian characteristics on the    arm-  it*-;  of all  the  German  states.    Prussian   barbarism  has  overlaid    German  civilization, and the result is German  ni'litarism.'    There   was  at  one  time  a real    German  civilization,   for  that  is  the  proper meaning  of  the    word  "kulttir";   and   there   was   culture     in  it according  to   the  meaning  of    the  English   word.     But     Prussia      has  never   yet  been  civilized.     Prussians  are a  bad mixture of  Wends,    Letts  and   Goths;     they  arc   not  real   Germans.    Their conversion    to    Christianity   was   as   late  as   the   thirteenth  century,  and   then    it    was     by    the  sword.   Their  rulers  have  kept  them  under  the    law    of    the    sword ever  Present  It'would be interesting to know  who .first tried to niakc some artificial-; device' by means of. which he  could , sec ..himself and his surroundings reflected as he had seen them  in a lake or pool.

Indeed, it would almost seem that, the  greater the scoundrel, the more women  can  he  get to  trust  him.  Can any blackguard get a wife? Is  there something about really bad  men that appeals in some subtle way  to women? Judging by the evidence  given in the murder trials of the past  few years, there is no limit to the  number cither of gullible women or  women who are willing to take any  risks  where  marriage is  concerned.

The Prussian soldier is still a serf in spirit, and a savage; and so he can be made a ready  instrument for the most barbarous  acts of war. Working on this material the iron discipline of Frederick  the Great, continued and developed  by Bismarck, Mollkc, and their pres-  .rnt-day successors, has impressed  the nations with the Prussian power  of creating a machine pitiless, grinding, destroying, invincible, with perfect organization behind it. And the  nations have been afraid of this machine, lis characteristics were seen  in  China.  In   the   last   few   years   before   the  war  the world came  to  know    some  of the  rotten  features of the German  army,   the  German   officer,    and . the  German  soldier.    The  famous  "Captain von Kopenick"  will    not  readily  be. forgotten.     He was  an  old    cobbler who  had  not even  been  a    soldier, as he was deformed.    But   lon-  ning  an  officer's  uniform,  which was  not even complete, he assumed command of a squad of.soldiers whom he  met in a street in Berlin, and marched  them   out   to   Kopenick,   a   yilhge  eight miles southeast of the    capital,  where   he   held   up   the   burgemcister  or mayor, and robbed the treasury of  the village.   The  brutal   and  disgusting conduct of Lieutenant von Forst-  ncr, in  the neighborhood of    Zabern  (formerly  Saverne)     in    Alsace-Lorraine, threw a light on  the mentality  of    the    German    officer.     But    the  greatest exposure of    the    inner rottenness   of  the   system   and    its    individuals, officers,-   non-commissioned  officers,  and men,  was  made    in  the  celebrated military novel, "Aus Einer  Bilse, published in Germany in    1903,  and translated into English under the  title, "Life in a Garrison Town." The  novel    was    surpressed    in  Germany  and its author imprisoned.    But still  the machine kept its  reputation.  If the German army, as a machine and in its individuals, had  been what Germany had led.Europe  to believe, victory ought to have followed quickly the invasion of Belgium. But the Belgian soldier, surprised the world by unexpected courage and sacrifice, with every disadvantage to face. He rose to nobility  in comparison with the armies of the  kaiser. The French soldier soon  found that individually he was more  than the German's equal. His patriotic self-sacrifice made him strong  in defeat as few believed that he  could be, and then his innate brilliance as a soldier, the inheritance of  centuries, came to the surface again.  But the greatest revelation to the  world was in the qualities of the  British army. Mons, the Aisne and  the Marne, followed by the iwo bat-  lies of Ypres, destroyed once for all  the legend of the national superiority  of the Germans as soldiers.  One and all   they appear as   gross  materialists;   French   , Belgians     and  British appear as idealists���������thei.-    inspiration is love of country,    love   of  justice and right; it is a religious in-  ipiralion.     Their    inspiration is  still  a rsing force, that of the Germans is  bpent in  the consciousness of failure.  The    German    idea of fighting is  to  overwhelm   by     mass;       Frenchmen,  Belgian   and   Briton,     each       desire.-  nothing better than  to get at the individual Bosche in hand to hand conflict,    with    bomb    or    bayonet.     So  marked is  this contrast at the    present  time  that,  while the  French  and  British make continuous trench raids  with their ordinary forces, the enemy  apparently  cannot get    his  rank  and  file to face    this    work(    and has to  employ  his  special  sturmtruppen,  or  licvc to have been in common; use  among the early .Egyptians, Greeks,  and Romans. Some historians say  that it; was Praxiteles who.': first  taught the use of silver in the making' of mirrors, and; that was about  the year 328 B.C. They say, too,  that craftsmen of Venice were; the  first to make .mirrors of glass. The  date assigned is the. beginning of the  Fourteenth .Century. These were  crude affairs at first, but (soon beautiful "ones were contrived and they  became_popular articles of adornment, as well as of use, with the  Venetian ladies, who carried them  about as they did their fans.      /  The French, it is    generally,    conceded, have,led the world in the production   of   beautiful   mirrors;     from  the    beginning    of  their   taking- .up  that art, their workmanship has been  noted for its   l*eauty and delicacy of  touch,  its... exquisite    detail.     It has  tat   the .-mirrors   made*,  in  ing  the  Seventeenth,   and  Eighteenth''centuries ."..are    the .most  beautiful  known,  both  in   design1 and  in the coloring used in  their decora-  lion.     It  became the fashion,  during  the  reign    of    Louis XIV., to insert  mirrored  panels  into  the. walls,-, and  these were framed in   .'rich, carvings  or  painted  borders,     ijust    as'   the  great artists  of. the, lime,   Fragonard,  Bouchet,  Watteau,    and  others  drew  designs  for the  exquisite    point lace  which was  being made all over    the  country     by    patient    beauty-loving  pe-asants,- so they decorated the walls  above and    around    these    mirrored  panels . with their painting's.    One of  the best.and most striking examples  of this use of the mirror as a decorative feature may be seen by the tourist in the famous  "Galcrie des,"  one  of  the state apartments  in  the great  palace  at  Versailles  Mirror making is believed to have  been introduced into England toward  the latter part of the Seventeenth  Century, and the craftsmen of tliat  country are credited with the practical and useful invention of mirrors  attached to, or used with, dressing  .tables and bureaus. The mirrors  made during the colonial period in  the United States are highly prized  today for their beauty of line and  decoration. They were frequently  rectangular in shape, long and ��������� narrow, with a small section at the top  divided off by a band, like the frame,  and adorned with a painted design.  Flowers were a favorite motif for  such decoration, also ships on billowing waves, or swans in quiet pools  Many of these were framed in beau  tifully grained mahogany, with a soft  dull polish like satin. Another popular style of frame was of wood,  painted black and richly adorned  with  gold  in  quaint  design.  The interior decorations of today  arc finding mirrors a valuable adjunct in producing the <*ffect desired.  For one thing, they help greatly in  giving an air of spaciousness to a  small apartment. Then, too, placed  as they should be, where they will  reflect a pleasing picture, they add  much to the beauty of their surroundings. For example, one artist  achieved a place of delight in a sun  parlor, a square room with two sides  all of glass, a third consisting'largely  of an archway- connecting it with  tin: rest of the house, and the fourth  a solid wall separating it from other  apartments. This solid wall she  covered with mirrors in panels. The  result was that the sun parlor seemed to be doubled in size, which gave  it a welcome air of spacious comfort  and, as the mirrored wall looked out  upon a lovely garden, it served as a  picture as  well.  men willing to marry him, each of  whom he deserted after he had possessed himself of her money! Then,  to take another outstanding example,  there was Ge'orge Chapman, who was  executed in England. This brute had  no difficulty in getting three ffirls to  marry him, each of whom was, in her  turn,  foully done to  death.  "How," people will say, "is a girl  to know that a man such as this is a  criminal in disguise?"  In that case, what becomes of the  wonderful "feminine intuition" about  which wc have always heard so  much?    Is it a myth?  It is not necessary to search the  calendar for proof of these statements. Day after day the police court  proceedings show how pitiably easy  it is "for the worst kinds of men to  deceive women; most of us know of  cases among our own private circle.  Who among us is not acquainted with  at least one woman whpse husband  almost since their wedding day, has  done nothing but slack about and get  drunk, quite content that his wife  should slave her ljjfe away in order  lo keep him in beer and tobacco.

Yet  she swallowed whole all his "hard  luck" stories about the difficulty of  getting a steady job. And, as to the  drink, had he not "promised to reform?"  Nor is this sort of thing confined  to any one class; you will find it  everywhere. In rcard to the men,  it is just possible that in some cases  the baseness of their characters is  clue to the fact that they have been  "made a fuss of" by their womanfolk  since the days when they were' babies, waited on, hand and foot, by  sisters, servants, girl friends, etc.;  idolized and pampered by foolish  mothers, until at last they have  grown up with a contemptuous, but  domineering, regard for all women,  and a fixed determination to get what  they want at any cost.

More About Golf  The Duke of Connsiught  The Duke of Connaught since his  return from Canada, has been putting  in full time at one or other of the  ceremonies with wliich Royalty is associated in this country, and hardly  a day passes without his services being in request. One thing I notice is  the change in his manner of delivering his speeches. Before going out  to Canada he usually read what he  had to say from a typewritten paper;  but experience in the Dominion has  taught him differently. He found  that written speeches were impossible  when he was expected to say something appropriate at a wayside station, or in a prairie town; and so he  began to speak extempore; This habit has been maintained since his return to England, and his speeches  have certainly not suffered, either in  matter or method, by the change.���������  Westminster Gazette.  A Game That Was Played Five Centuries Ago  The game of golf, according to the  new Encyclopaedia Britannica, goes  back at least five centuries, having  been portrayed by early Dutch painters. One of the pictures in a Dutch  illuminated Book of Hours, now in  the British Museum, is a painting of  three nreu putting at a hole in the  turf as iu modern golf. Although  the Duthcmen did play and paint  golf, they did not write about it, so  there are no records describing the  game.  Just when Scotland look up golf  is unknown, but by 1457 it was al-  ie*ady so popular, says the Britannica, that it interfered with the more  important pursuit of archery. In  May, 1471, .an Act of the Scottish  Parliament was passed, forbidding  this sport: "Futeball and golfe forbidden. Item, it is'staut and ��������� or-  dainit that in na place of the realme  there be .usit futeball, golfe, or other  sik  unprofitable sports  '-.   .   .���������..."'"

The Gallant  Canadians  Praising Immortal Heroism of Maple-  Leafs ������at Vimy Ridge  On  the extreme left the  Canadians  had the post of honor, for theirs was  the  chief  objective.   Canadian  annals  will   not  soon   know a   prouder   day.  For months they had looked upwards  to the  crest of the Vimy  Ridge,    so  long a looming and impregnable barrier across the main strategical roads  to   Belgium.   It's   slopes   were  soaked  in  French   blood  again   and  again  in  1915,   when   our  allies   attacked   with  immortal   heroism.     Every  foot'    upwards made a difference,  but without  such  artillery as we now possess  no  human   efforts   could   carry   the   summit.   When we took over in this sector we had one nasty knock and lost,  some of the trenches which our allies  held  so   hardly gained.   We  need  not '  tell  how   these  heights,' - sown    with"  machine   guns,  were  furrowed,' laced  and   enmeshed,     tunnelled,   "gallaried -  and    honeycombed     with      defences  which   never  can  be    surpassed   . for  sinister   strength    and     diligent     ingenuity.  A  few  weeks  ago  the   task  before  the  Canadians  would    have    seemed  impossible.     Now   the  bombardment  had made  it" manageable  given  sufficient courage-and grip.   Of these the  var-hardened  troops    of    the    great"  Dominion had enough and to spare.  Gun-power  had pulverized  the    German works, making a chaos of broken  chalk  and   churned  earth.     Storming  up  the   ridge  from  trace 'to   trace  of  the ruined  trenches,    the    Canadians  went over everything, capturing masses of  Prince Rupprecht's  Bavarian*?,  haled   out   of     their , dugouts,       anel  brooming away the rest.   By the afternoon  the  men  of the   Maple   Leaf  were at last on  the top  of  the land,  looking   far  and  wide over  the   plain  of Douai, which may possibly be tho  key of the western war.

Fighting  went  on   through     the    night.       By  morning the Canadians had. won their  Hill 145. They held it against repeated  counter-attacks.

"When you get  them only," was the reply. Just  think of it: this lad hadn't so much  as heard that the British had licked  up the Colonial Empire of his Fatherland. Neither had he heard about  Bagdad, Palestine, or that America  had entered the war. For six weeks  he had been in one dugout waiting  upon an officer, who, when he asked  questions as to when the-war would  end occasionally answered him with  a kick.

Farm Produce
By  Mrs.   McBeath,  Hcadingly,
- }'.
Perhaps  one.of the ^biggest 'problems on the farm is the marketing of
'the produce profitably.  It is a phase
of farming  in   which  we  need    help
and instruction just  as much  as    in
.growing crops or raising live  stock,
llie laws of supply and demand, the
art of selling,-and , the regulation   of
* prices "need to be . studied    just    as
-much in  farming as    in    mercantile
business of any, kind.
'' "Marketing is'where the farm    women most often fall down. They may
raise poultry or-make butter, but if
they cannot  market    their    produce
""profitably the most    of-   their    work
goes for nothing.  In a new country
like the west, it is long before staple
prices and reliable markets,get estab-
, lished;  meantime  selling and buying
are. rather haphazard .'and      a    real
worry to both producer and consum-.
The problem of the woman far
from town 'is different from that of
the woman who is within easy reach
of .city markets. The'woman in country, places depends' on the country
store for-a market. Now the country
storekeeper has -his problem just as
well as the- farmer's wife, and if we
arc ever to get at the root of the
���_ matter we must consider both sides
of the question.
Take the matter of butter.' How
few women really make first-class
butter. We all know the woman who
keeps her cream-too long before
churning, and,-when it turns ' out
"nippy", remarks that it is not very
good and she will just send it to the
store! What can the storekeeper do
with it?- He has lb sell it for cooking.butter, because the woman who
sent il in may be one of ,his best
customers and he cannot afford to offend her by refusing to take it. The
loss falls, not on the woman who
made this poor butler, however, but
on the'other woman who makes good
butter that will sell for a price mat
can" cover the loss on the bad butter.
This woman did not realize that ev-
<*ry pound of poor butter sent to the
store lowered the price of all the butter to "tlie seller, and raised it all to
ihe buyer.- She ought to have -kept
the "nippy" butter at home, and the
home critics would'not have < been
long in voicing their opinions as to
quality. That this is a common state
of affairs everyone knows.
Last ���summer I asked at a' country
store if they had any good butter;
Ihey said they had not a pound of
eatable' butter in the place and they
had 'lots of orders they could not
fill. Now one thing is certain; as
leng-as butter goes to the stores of
no uniform good quality, there can be
no good prices to the producer. Ihe
storekeeper cannot give one woman
a better price than her neighbor, for
they tell each other, and his life
would not be woith living after they
tound out. ^
The same can be told of the egg
trade. One woman is short an egg
to make, out a dozen, and puts in a
doubtful one. That one bad egg
comes back like a boomerang and
hits the price of the whole lot. The
women who do business in this style
usually demand the highest price.
They are unbusinesslike from first to
last. The difficulties of getting produce of uniform quality is the main
reason for the almost universal
movement towards co-operation.
With creameries to take the cream
dailv, a uniform good quality of butler is produced which will bring a
much better price than mixed lots
of butter gathered at the stores.
The same with egg circles. Where
the eggs are gathered legularly every day, they can be sold at better
prices with little danger of rotten
eggs getting amongst them. Therefore, in country places il seems the
very wisest policy to encourage cooperative movements. It-relieves the
women-of a good deal of heavy work,
makes for better prices, eliminates
the selling problem, and relieves the
country storekeeper of one of his
biggest difficulties.
There is also another way in which
country districts can co-operate, and
that is in producing specialties. In
most communities, every one follows
his or her own fancy, in choice of
stock or poultry, etc. . Consequently
when buyers come they find difficulty
in getting big enough shipments of
any one kind. To illustrate what 1
mean, let me tell you of the experience of the fruit growers in the Okanagan Valley,, B.C. Every settler
who went in there started to plant
apples of every variety. They did not
know much about it, but planted
trees of all sorts and kinds. When
the trees came into bearings, they
were quite discouraged to find that
they could not tell the fruit. At last
they sent down to Oregon for an expert to come and go over the situation. He was not long in telling
them what, was the trouble, for the
Oregon folks had gone through the
same experience. He advised them to
root out their trees and only keep
well-known standard apples, and
when an order came they could ship
several carloads of those sorts instead of mixed cars of 150 different
kinds, worth very little. Where he
came from they all grew a variety of
"Golden Pippin." They rooted out
tlie other kinds and now have a ree-
ular trade, the Pippins going to England to supply the London market at
a price much higher than they could
have got for ordinary apples at home.*
This was true co-operation.
Why not get together; study the
markets and possibilities of your
district, and whether butler, cheese,
or selling cream, will be most profitable, and all centre their energies
on promoting what will give the best
returns. Keep one kind of poultry,
whether for laying or for table fowls,
so that when a buyer comes he can
fill an order for several crates of the
same kind, instead of mixed lots of
big and small for which he cannot
give a good price. A community organized in this way gets up its name
Buyers tell each other, and so a business gets established. "     '
Were creameries, egg circle, and
poultry-fattening stations established
generally, there would result a standard market and standard prices in
place of the uncertain prices and haphazard selling, which are the discouragement of most country women
The disposing of produce near the
city is quite different, however. There
is a larger market to cater to, and
many articles can be sold that the
far-off country- woman cannot send
The city woman likes to get fresh
and good country produce a little
more moderate than the price asked
in, the store, while the country woman is glad to supply when she finds
a good customer; but the producer
and consumer must get together and
understand the situation thoroughly,
or efforts in this line will fall
A town near New York made a
move the other day which helped to
bring the people together and which
was voted a splendid success. The
Secretary of the Board of Commerce
interested some of the representative
men both in town and country, with
the result that they held a festival
which they called "The Country and
City Get-Together." The country
folks brought in all sorts of farm produce to exhibit, while the town folks
exhibited the city products. Afterwards there was a dinner, where five
hundred sat down, city and country
folks together, and then they had an
illustrated talk'on "A Square Deal
Between .Country Producer and City
Consumer." Now this is what is
wanted: A Square Deal.
What the city woman needs to
know is that when the cost of living
has gone up so much the prices of
farm produce have automatically
gone up too, since the high cost of
living hits the farmers just as much
as the city folks. Eggs that used to
pay a fair profit at 30c will not pay
a cent of profit this winter at 50c.
Even in places like California where
egg ranches are by the hundreds, and
where the winters are like summer,
the eggs have been "60c a dozen this
year, even before the tourist season
started, anel why? Because grain in
the States is just as dear as here,
and to get eggs you must feed your
hens grain, while the poultry woman
here has lo contend with the extreme
cold as well. Perhaps some of you
may have noticed that the first shipment of eggs from Winnipeg went
to Britain the other day��� a million
dozen. The wholesale price of eggs
iu Britain just now is 4s the dozen,
so that it can readily be seen that
when there is a market like that calling for an unlimited supply, the
prices here are going to soar.
Poultry has been high in price too,
for the same reason���the high price
of feed. Poultry cannot be fattened
witliout grain and milk, and these are
the most costly things on the farm
today. The same with milk and butter; with bran and shorts at $28 and
$30 a ton it is impossible that milk
and butter'can be pioduced cheaply.
So the town folks must not blame
the farmer unduly for the high price.
Our stumbling block to the city
folks is the difference in prices asked
by producers. This is a difficult thing
to arrange, for some women ask an
exorbitant price, while others who
have never calculated the cost of production may ask so little that tlrey
lose money on every single transaction. This is where we need instruction to be able to calculate what.our
produce really costs, so that we can
charge a reasonable profit and establish a standard price that would be
fair to all. The city woman is rather
discouraged by her essays in buying
direct from the country folk, and I
believe it is principally because people in town do not understand thai
if it is hard times in town it is equally hard times in the country.
It is well known that one of the
principal causes of high prices is the
cost of delivery, which in.the end of
course, is paid by the consumer. To
offset this the Public Market is open
and the "Cash, and Carry" system is
one of the best features. To the ordinary householder these markets
should prove a boon, as they have in
other places where the Public Market movement is steadily increasing.
There is a limited market just now
for extra good products sent by Parcels Post. We are not yet accustomed to the convenience of this method
but it is especially suited to producers who have a limited amount' to
sell, and to buyers who like the very
best and freshest of articles.
In the States, where the Parcel
Post has been working fpr some
years, Postmaster General Burleson
issued a statement the other day
which should encourage us to use
this method of marketing. They
had many difficulties at first; getting
suitable  packages,   extremes  of  heat
and cold in transport, apathy of the
people, etc., but the Post Office start
ed a "Farm to Table by Post" campaign and the success' is splendid
The business has increased with leaps
and bounds, till now the Post Office
has had to instal refrigerator facili-
\ies; even thermotic containers which
will keep things either hot or cold
for twenty-four hours are being developed. The list of articles that can
be sent is increasing, and Parcel Post
has evidently filled the long felt want
of delivering in the city home what is
made in the homes in the country,
and is largely helping to reduce the
cost of living. Mr. Burlesan says:
"Getting together is the secret as it
has been the secret of all successful
business. The consumer wants the
best the market affords at the lowest
price, and the producer finds he fares
better by selling for 'cash than in
trading. Both sides understand each
other���neither side should 'demand
the whole of the saving." He reports instances where retail city
price's were asked by the producer,
while the consumer expected to buy
ai the lowest co'untry price. When
they agree lo share the difference,
then a good business can generally
be done. The Post Office Issues a
bulletin with complete instructions
how to pack for the mail, and also
supplies a list of producers in all the
postal districts.for tho help of city
consumers who do not know how to
get in touch with the country.
Our own Postal authorities here
are busy extending the rural system,
and on the routes already established
there is quite an increasing business
In postal packages���eggs, butter,
fowls, turkeys, cut of meat etc. All
go quite nicely by -mail. The cost
is less than express and if our authorities would extend the limit of
cheap rate from 20 miles to,' say, 50,
there would be a much bigger trade
I may mention the success of some
of my neighbors with the Parcel
Post. One woman has-been shipping new laid eggs all winter by mail
In January she shipped sixty dozen,
mostly for invalids as "one customer
told others, and she cannot possibly
supply the demand. In summer she
sent milk-fed chickens for which she
has standing orders, also turkeys.
Another woman sent roasts of pork
and cuts of beef, sausage, meat, etc.
rnd several others shipped eggs. So
far there has not been a complaint,
which says a great deal for our Postal Service. 1 dare say you all have
some experience in the use of Parcel
Post these times in sending things
to your boys at the front, and have
been surprised what you could send,
so that you can realize what a simple
"method you have rjght at hand to
help out your marketing.
I may tell you that lately the Post
Office in Winnipeg had a shipment of
two carloads of mail boxes for the
Rural Routes, something like 2,000
boxes, so the possibilities of wider
markets  are  before  you.
All produce nowadays must be put
up in attractive form it if is to command a good price, but the variety
of containers now to be had is endless. As a rule they are mono-service, which does away with much
trouble and worry over the returning
of crocks or cases.
A good plan is adopted by people
who club together and send orders
to the country. This is a capital
plan, and in some instances I know
of has worked out very satisfactorily.
The idea was started in the States by
an apple grower who thought that
there were possibilities of selling to
men in offices, so he started in by
putting up nice cartons of picked apples with the motto: "An apple a day
keeps the doctor away," and delivered
them in the offices. This led to other farm stuff being clubbed in the
same way.
The saving comes in the amount
sent, as express charges are less on
the bigger quantity, and the produce
is easily divided up on arrival. In
offices tins has been tried where
there arc several employees. One
person acts as secretary, collects the
orders on a certain day, with the
payments, sends them off, and on arrival of the goods distributes them.
In only one or two cases have I
heard of dissatisfaction but a change
was made and another producer gave
complete satisfaction. And these
little circles are becoming more common. Their motto is "Fresh Goods,
and  Cash  With  Order."
For those who live on an automobile route there are many chances of
disposing of small quantities of produce. Many of the ordinary things
on a farm are dainties to the city
folks, and there are many inquiries
from passers-by, for eggs, butter,
cream, buttermilk; chickens, sweet
corn, rhubarb and berries when in
season. If the use of bulletin boards
naming the articles for sale became
general much more business could be
done in this way.
There is also the matter of private
customers in town who get in produce by express or delivery. Opinion differs as to this method. In
many cases it is unsatisfactory, because the promised supply fails just
when it is expected to go on���quality is sometimes not up to standard-
difficulties of delivering on set days
comes in when the horses happen to
be extra busy on the farm. Then
there arc difficulties on the other side
of collecting payments and getting
returned empties sent back, and so
on. It is not an uncommon thing
too for the country woman to be
done out of her goods. I heard of
one woman who had fresh eggs sent
to her, and after some months wrote
to say she would not pay the price,
as half the eggs were rotten I Just
lately I heard of two cases where
clocks of butter had been sent in.
One, woman kept her crock iu a damp
cellar and said the butter was mouldy
and refused to-pay. The other kept
hers next a steam pipe and declared
her butter went -rancid and she refused to pay. Well, there is a very
simple remedy for offenders in both
cases. "Cut them out," and stay only
with those who deal fairly. While
some customers are unsatisfactory,
there are others with whom it is a
real pleasure to do business; considerate, punctual, and efficient; there
is no trouble at all in dealing with
them. 1 know of one such, who on
receiving poultry sent' in, returned
two cents a pound more than the
price asked, because the quality was
so good, and another gentleman who
paid three cents a pound for turkeys
more than was asked, for the same
reason. Little wonder there is satisfaction on both sides there. It was
a pleasure for those buyers to show
their appreciation in that way, and
the farm woman could not fail to feel
pleasure and encouragement, which
might show itself in an extra pot-of
cream or some other dainty popped
in with the ncxt^ order.
In trading, as" in any other line of
life, we should remember the. Golden Rule: "Do to others as you would
be done by"���and many of the present difficulties in' marketing would
Modern Jews and
Their "Holy Land"
Jews  May Be  Established in Palestine Under the Protection
of Britain or U.S.
The organization of a new "League
of the Jewish Youth of America"
furnished recently a suitable occasion
for a partial recantation by Jacob
Schiff of much of what he lias been
saying for years against the "Pales-
tine-for-the-Jews" movement in the
United States. Mr. Schiff is one of
the most prominent, most respected,
and most influential members of this
dispersed race in the wide world, and
therefore any modification of his attitude toward this propaganda is full
of significance in relation to the
events of the clay in the Near East.
Though he is by birth a German, he
is cosmopolitan in reputation, and is
a resident banker in the city of New
Air. Schiff now declares himself
favorable to the establishment of the
Jews in Palestine, under conditions
that will enable them to make it their
own "home land and a great reservoir of "Jewish learning, in which
Jewish culture may be furthcied and
developed." Obviously, as a means
of realizing this ideal, some form of
self-government is absolutely necessary, but under the efficient.protection of one or more of the greai
world powers, say Great Britain and
the United Slates.
It is one of the -fortunate outcomes of this kaleidoscopic Arma-
?cddon that the American and British
ews can now work in closest cooperation for the future welfare and
development of the whole mass-of the
Jews of the Dispersion, including
those in both Germany and Russia.
What the world owes lo them foi
their cultural contribution to modern
civilization is an undischargeable obligation. A flashlight on this aspect
of the situation was afforded by
single incident of the New York
League meeting: the singing by a
young Jewish girl of a solo from the
"Elijah" of Mendelssohn, who was
himself a German Jew.
Favor Compulsion
American   Radical . Changes   Views
After Studying English
Norman Hapgood writing io the
New York Evening Post, from London, says that "there is no longer
and doubt in England that compulsory service is better than a volunteer army," and he adds: "Like many
others who began with sympathy for
the other way, I have been forced to
this conclusion by a study of the situation here." Writing of armies as a
bulwark of democracy Mr. Hapgood
"The French army is the bulwark
of the democracy. Every politician
in Paris knows that the army won't
stand any departure from Kepublican
institutions. When the war began
many said that France would be a
monarchy again before it was ended.
They did not understand the new
meaning of the democratic army.
The rise of the distinguished Frenchman, General J off re, is a conspicuous example of the working of the
French system. There is no greater
bulwark to a democracy than an
army that is made up of the entire
population and where privileges for
both privates and officers are earned.
France was never so safetly democratic as today after nearly three
years of war.
"The class system in England has
been confined mostly to the' early
stages of the war. The "expression
'temporary gentleman' which was
used by the old aristocracy to apply-
to a man who had lisen from the
ir.nks to be a commissioned officer
and who had, therefore, automatically changed his class, is not as popular as it was a year ago.
"The 'T. G.'s' as they are called-
with amusing snobbishness, are so
numerous that after the i\ar they
will make it hard for the Permanent
Gentleman to remain a ruling caste.
A commission should mean dignity
for any one intelligent enough to obtain one.
"In America there are no definite
classes, but'favoritism in the giving
out of commissions must be avoided.
Properly conducted, compulsion _ is
the most democratic institution which
modern  life has  evolved.
"The underlying democratic feeling in England is stronger now than
when the war began. Stiongcr than
wc as yet realize in Amciica, and very
strong in the army itself. She will
emerge from the war a more democratic nation than she went in. There
will remain certain foi ins of centralization that aie the result of war,
but there will be greater power in
the labor class, greater power in
women and less class distinction."
Feeding Frozen Wheat
Interesting Experiment    Carried    on
By G H    Hutton at Lacombe
Early in December last, two cars
of cattle were put on feed at Lacombe
one group being fed a ration'of frosted wheat and the second loi receiving
oats and barley in equal parts. Each
group . received the same weight of
well ground grain and hacl access_ to
the same class of roughage during
the entire, feeding period. It is interesting to note that wheat which
was quite badly frozen produced
greater gains than were made by the
groups receiving oats and barley. No
ill effects resulted from the feeding
of frosted wheat. Some feeders predicted that this ration would cause
excessive scouring but such was not
the result as the groups were in
equally good condition throughout
the test. Had the steers been...of
equal weight at the beginning of the
experiment, an increased profit in
favor of frosted wheat of $3.38 per
head would have  been- shown.
Children end Fly Papers
That infants and young children
have died from swallowing the poison of fly papers is asserted by the
Journal of the Michigan State Medical Society. In that State a bill has
been passed by the legislature prohibiting the sale of the poisonous
variety. These arsenical fly destroying devices, if used in the home,
should be carefully placed out of the
reach of young children. There arc
many non-poisonous mixtures that
can replace them, however, that have
the advantage of being easy to compound at home.

Victory Necessary
Attitude    of    the Enemy  Makes  an
Absolute Victory  Necessary
The prolongation of the war has
increased the necessity of an absolute victory.
This' prolongation of the war tends
to decrease Ihe horror of, and therefore the reaction against,  barbarism.
It familiarises the mind (by an
illusion) with the idea of an insoluble problem. I have met plenty of
men who thought the trenches in
front of Noyon, having been filled
vith opposing forces for two and a
half years, would be so filled in the
It gives time for old bad habits in
government and social" organization,
which has bowed to the blast in 1914
and 1915, lo raise their heads again.
It adds strength to reiterated
asset tions of those germano-phils
who foster even among us a mood
of "stalemate" and of "terms." It
exhausts   materially   and  morally.
It does al these things. Bui���far
more important���it increases Ihe desire of the enemy to destroy a
civilization which he 'cannot attain
and increases his practice in the
means of destruction. Thcrefoic it
compels that ciiilization with every
increasing month lo determine more
and more upon the absolute elimination of such a menace.
Those who saicl in 1914 that the
war was a matter ol" life and death
were accused by many of rhetorical
exaggeration. Today, and for this
country especially, under the menace
by sea, the formula is patently true.
The enemy has, during the pro-
gross of the war gradually proceeded
step by step to break, one after the
other, a series of conventions explicit
;nd implicit, which hacl hithertj
limited the action of the belligerents
by s*:a and by land. He has not
reached the.limit of this process.
Either these novel outrages (or at
any rate some of them) will be
allowed to form precedents or they
will not. Whether they will form
precedents or no depends, not upon
written conventions or the verbal
i romises from governments, bull
ipon a state of mind in Europe.
That* state of mind will be chiefly
produced by the-character and-completeness of the victory���which in its
turn will very largely depend upon
domestic opinion within the entente
countries during these few last
months which are at hand.
That is the capital truth which we
must bear in mind/especially here at

Out of the Night  Leslie Fan ant stood in her studio  contemplating by the light of the: big  lamp beside the fireplace the latest  picture she had painted. A fire burnt  in the grate, for the woman who  siood silently iu tlie great, bare studio liked warmth; it almost seemed a  necessary of life to her, and whilst  she stood gazing at the picture on  the easel, she held out her hands lo  the blaze, and shivered. The uiiid  swept around the house with weird  shriekings and wailinsrs, as if millions  of lost spirits were crying on/- for  pity; the rain whipped against the  window, with a sharp, whistling  sound; and across the space of sky  visible through the uncurtained panes  Leslie could sec the racing clouds. A  smile crossed her face���������a curiously  hard, vtnmirlhful smile, wliich curved  her lips into a sort of sneer.  "I like it belter than sunshine," she  said aloud; then turned from her contemplation of the tempestuous outside- world to look once more with  appraising glances at the painting upon the easel.  A low knock sounded on the door  which opened slowly and the frightened face-of the little servant maid  appeared in the aperture.  "Oh! if you please, miss," she  stammered. "I never 'card auythink  so awful as the wind, it fair frightens  me. I dursen't go to bed.. .Oh!., my  gawd, listen to the wind! It's like  people screamin'."  "Can't you go to bed? Stay up  then," her mistress responded curtly. "For goodness sake don't stand  therewith the door half open. Come  in and sit down and hold your tongue."  . With a terrified glance at her mistress, who was only a degree less  alarming than the storm itself, Minnie slunk into tlie furthest corner of  the studio, where she sat down on  the extreme edge of a chair, looking  the picture of terror, her small scared  face turning first to Miss Farrant,  then to the big' window whose unaccustomed vastness never failed to  have a terrifying effect upon her.  Her mistress paid no more he'ed to  her than if she had not been there,  and for many minutes the silence in  the studio was unbroken, save for  the roaring of the gale, which, every  moment increased in strength. Then,  suddenly, the two silent women inside the studio heard the crunch,  crunch of heavy feet ou the pathway  outside; and at the sound of the slow  tramping Minnie gave utterance to a  little shriek of fear.  "Oh! my gawd, they tramp as it"  they was carrying a coffin," she exclaimed, cowering down in her chair.  "Whatever is it? Oh! 'whatever is  it?" Her mistress looked at her with  a scornful laugh.  "Who do you suppose would be  likely 'to carry coffins up here?" she  saicl mockingly. "People don't carry  promiscuous coffins about the downs.  Do try and stop shaking in that absurd way. Don't be a fool, my good  girl. Go and open the front door."  " dursen't���������oh, lor, miss, I dursen't go nigh the door," Minnie cried  shrinking yet further back against the:  wall. "I don't know whatever I'd  see out there. .1,dursen't." She had  hr.rdly spoken the words when a loud  knock echoed through the house,  echoed with a certain .wcirdncss ar,  if the rooms were strangely empty.  The knock drew another scream from  Minnie's lips- her mistress glanced; at  her and laughed a short, contemptuous laugh, and without speaking a  word walked out of the studio, and  down the stone passage to the front  door. '/This door she rapidly unlocked  and unbolted, flinging it wide open,  to be nearly swept off her feet by the  hurricane of wind that came rioting  into  the  house.  Outside on the pathway stood four  men, bearing between them au improvised ambulance, on which lay  someone wrapped in a dark covering  and Minnie's words about the coffin  rushed unbidden to Leslie's mind.  But before she could speak the foremost of the men said courteously:  "I must apologize for invading you  in this way. But there has_ been a  railway accident in the cutting, and  this lady is so badly injured that I  dare not take her any distance. I remembered seeing your house as I  drove up the lane just now, and I  have ventured to bring tlie poor lady  here and ask whether you can    give  icr shelter?    Yours -seems  lo b; the  only house anywhere  ncai."  "Who arc ycni? Who is she?" The  two questions were rapped out sharply, and Guy Thornton peered through  the gloom to try and discover what  manner of woman she was wlio gave  so strange a reply to his appeal.  "1 urn Doctor Thornton���������Guy  Thornton, of Lous-bury," he answered, "but who the poor thing is I have  no idea only, for heaven's sake let  us in. She is as bad as she can lie.  Will you Ict us carry her into your  house nt once?"  "I seem to have no ��������� alternative,"  Leslie said grimly, though she stood  back from the door to allow rhc four  men to enter with their burden, she  gave Guy the impression that she admitted   them  grudgingly.  "Where is the nearest sofa?" Guy  asked shortly, ignoring the inhospitable reception of the mistress of the  house, and Leslie nodded towards  the studio, where a big couch filled up  one of the wall spaces. Very gently  the four men carried their stretchc*-  into the great room and placed it before the fire, when Thornton drew  the tarpaulin covering from the injured woman and lifted her upon the  couch, where the light of the lamp  fell upon her white face and the  streaming loveliness of her hair.

Explains  Prohibition of Importation  Into Great'Britain  Minister of Agriculture Prolhero,  replying to the British house of commons to questions put to the government on the subject by PI am a i-  Greenwood, reviewed the circumstances- which led to prohibition of 'im-.-  portation into the United Kingdom'  of cattle from Canada. He continued:  "Strong representations OO this  subject, but" more particularly ' concerning the stigma cast . on Canadian livestock, were made-to me by  the Canadian ministers during their  recent visit here. Canada disputes  the genuineness of the case������ .on  which prohibition was originally  founded, and without doubt" the Dominion has been almost entirely free  from foot aifd mouth disease and  pleuro-pncumonia. Canadian feeling,, therefore, resents the imputation of infection. This-prohibition of  importation cannot, as J am advised  by the chief veterinary officer of the  board of agriculture, be justified on  the ground of health. -Cattle h������ed  and reared in Canada and leaving  that country for the first time by-  direct shipment to a British port  ought not to be excluded under the  Diseased Animal Act of 1896. I cannot say whether, or un'der what conditions, Canadian cattle of ihe kind  indicated might hereafter be pcrmit-  cd to enter this country except foi  slaughter at port. When farmers  here are being asked to reduce theii  livestock, permission is plainly impossible, but "' the prohibition rest*;  largely upon ,the agricultural policy  of the United Kingdom, rather .than  on the risk of disease."   .

Their reports were most Interesting.   ITere they are:  Dr. Beck reports, "When my attention  trns first called to the wondeiful eye remedy, Bon Opto. I was Inclined to be skeptical. ,1 make ic n rule to test every new  treatment which is brought to my attention.  Having specialized in eye work for the past  twenty years, I believe I am qualltled to  express an intelligent opinion on romcdlog  applicable to the eyes. Since Bon Opto has  created such a sensation throughout the  "United States und Canada, I welcomed the  opportunity to test it.

I advise  every thoughtful physician to study Bon  Opto principal, give it the same* careful  trlul I havo.and there is no doubt In my  mind they will come to the conclusion I  have, *��������� namely, that the Bon Opto method  opens }he door for tho cure of many eye  troubles which have heretofore been impossible to  cope with.

Dr. *rudklns, Mas-inchiisetts physician,  formerly Chief of Clinic** in tho TJuiou Gen-  oral Hospital, Boston, Mass., nnd formorly  llouse Surgeon nt the New England Eye and  Bar Iuflrniary of Portland, "Maine," and  medical author for many years, reports:  "I have found oculists too prone to operate and opticians too willing to prescribe  glasses whilo neglecting tho simple formulas which form tho basis of that wonderful  home treatment for eyo troubles, Bon Opto.  This, in my opinion, is a remarkablo remedy for the'eure and prevention of many eve  disorders.

Bon  Opto is hastening the eyeglassless age in  bespectacled Boston." ^  Victims of eye strain and other eye weaknesses and those who wear glasses v. ill be  glad to know that according to Dr. Beck  nnd Dr. Judkins, theie is real hope and  help for them. Many wliose eyes were failing say they have had their eyes restored  by this remarkable prescription and many  who once wore glasses say they have  thrown them away."\ One man says, after  using it: "I was almost blind. Could not  nee to read nt all. Now I can read everything without my glasses and niy eyes do  not hurt any more. At night they would  pain dreadfully. Now they feel fine all the  time.

The "pipe"  is made by thrusting two sticks into  the ground so as to meet at an angle;  when they are withdrawn two tunnels are left behind. A hollow reed  is stuck in one hole, and the tobacco  placed in the other and lighted. Before beginning operations the native  fills his moulh with water, drawing  in the smoke with a gurgling sound  and blowing out the water and smoke  through a second reed.

I should have thought that any  man with a single particle of social  justice in his blood v.ould be aflame  with wrath against a system which  has enslaved men, murdered children  and violated women. Is social justice a vital conviction worth fighting!  for and dying for, or is il but a gentle  sentiment and a pleasing vision only,  worth talking about and writing*  about? This seems lo me the qucs-l  tion which is put to Ameiica today,  and I am glad with a devout gladness  that x\mcrica is preparing to show  the world thai she has not lost the  self-sacrificing faith of her faith in  the inalienable right of every .man lo  life, liberty and the puisuit of happiness.���������By Dr.  Lyman Abbott.

From the beginning of  the war till now there has been the  best feeling between Nationalists and  Ulstermen, and the fact that they aie  both Irish is a bond against all-comers. I have heard both Nationalists  and Ulstermen say that if their own  drafts failed them they would far  rather be recruited fiom each othei  than take English recruits. A littlo  of this spirit is wanted in Ireland.���������  Westminster   Gazette.
