"WHEN   "WRITING  ADVERTISKKS PLEASE  MENTION THE GAHISTTE  An interesting departure has\been  made under the direction of the Hon.  W. R. Ross to make our people realize  the great importance of the lumber industry and the necessity of protecting  the forest resources of British Columbia  from  damage by fire.  Moving pictures have nowadays an  educational power only second to that  of the press ��������� itself. Hence last year  a number of the motion picture  theatres in the Provine were supplied  with a set of slides to be used in the  intervals between the ordinary films,  the pictures bearing the following legends, each supported by a typical forest scene:  "One moment please! "While waiting, resolve to be careful with fire in  tho woods."   .  "Only six trees (shown in picture)  but their manufacture into lumber cm-  ployed 100 men for. one day. Put your  fires out."  "$400,000 reward! Is what the lumber industry of the Pacific North West  pays the community daily for labor,  supplies, etc. You sharc.it. Be careful with^ire in the woods. The road  t-r. prosperity lies through the forests;  don't burn them up!"  The slides were sent -out under instructions from the Minister of Lands  with a letter explaining the need for  the co-operation of the threatrc proprietors in order to roach a large body  of the public inaccessible by any other  means. The result was entirely satisfactory, both theatres and patrons  expressing their appreciation.  This year the idea was extended,  every motion picture theatre in British Columbia received a.set, the subjects being more direct in their &p-'  peals' as is shown by'-'the inscriptions:  (1) "Wage earners and Merchants!  The lumber industry already employs  over half the wage, earners in British  Columbia, and distributes over 20 million dollars annually for labor and  supplies ������������������ * * * make it permanent  by protecting the forests from fire  (view shown of export sawmill with  shipping)  ' (2) "Taxpayers!. Forests pay into  British Columbia treasury 2 1-2 million dollars annually * * *' Prevent fires, and keep your taxes down  (logging scene.")  (3)    "Hunters      and      Fishermen!  Green forests afford shelter for game,  and   clear   water   for   fish    *    *    *  Help keep them green (forest guard-  in canoe on patrol.")  In utilizing the motion picture  theatre on the lines-described, a powerful agency has been recognized for  reaching the general public. The posters displayed along the roads, and in  the neighborhood of logging camps  and sawmills are familiar to many,  while the woodsmen and other followers of the open air life are reminded  of the necessity for care with fire  every time they use a forest branch  whetstone.  The general public with its plans  for. holiday camps, picnics and the like,  will also be reminded of the fire danger, and will undoubtedly respond as  good citizens and shareholders in the  prosperity of the Province.

Quinn of the'72nd Seaforths gives some  vivid details of the fighting in which  he was wounded at Ypres-; He' says  in part:  "The first day'of'the fight 1 got  through without a scratch, although  the bullets were humming around me  like a swarm of flies and men were  dropping beside me. The man I had  chummed with for the past six months  was killed and a lot of fellows I liked  best. The second day we were sent-  into the trenches to reinforce the  Eighth Battalion and 1 tell you there  .was nothing slow about the Germans  in froiit'rtf us. I was looking through  a loophole in the trench parapet when  a shell burst nearly over my head���������  and whack! -1 thought my arm was  gone. It felt as if someone h.-icl hit me  in the at in with a .sledgehammer* I  had no time to take my coat off, "-o 1  one of the boys tie it up tight. The  shells were dropping on us pretty  thick and hitting .some of us nearly  every time. About an hour after the  first one hit .me .-mother piece of shell  hit me in the back of the shoulder  and it is still in there.  "We all knew that we couldn't hold  them back much longer and that we  would have to retire or- fall into the  hands of the Huns. The country behind our trenches was level and open  and no reinforcement:* could get in to  us in the daytime because the. Germans could cover the whole ground  with their artillery and machine guns.  "Well, we stuck itjlntil .7:30 and then  came the order to retire, and the few  that were left started back, .and-we  just started in time, for- we hadn't got  more than a hundred yards when the  Germans were over our trenches; in.  drecis and it seemed as, if about ten  million bullets were flying around me.  One went through the top of my cap,  another went into my water-bottle,  but we didn't mind the bullets; we. had  got used to them living around."  for fosail collecting. Mr. Geo. F.  Sternberg will collect reptilian remains from' the Edmonton formation  on Red Deer river. Both of these  parties will.also make careful search  for fossils of primitive mammals.

This state of affairs is regrettable especially, when other  districts have dor;*- so well in  some places more uien have offered and been accepted .'thn.ii  were required.  What is the reason'? Is it  possible that the citizens of this  valley are not fully awake to  the fact that the liberty and  honor of: our nation is at stake?  We think that there is a great  lack of patriotic enthusiasm  and that nothing in the shape  of meeting or demonstrations  have been held to stimulate in-  interest in this our greatest  national crisis. "Enlist, young  men, enlist!"  Compulsory service, military  or civil, is foreign to British  ideas but between a form of  conscription and a possibility  of ���������incomrjlete victory over Gei--  many the people of Great Britain would not hesitate one  moment. Press and' public  have made that abundantly  clear. ,  Rt. Hon. David Lloyd George,  minister 6f munitions, has explained tlie position. The war  office' has as many recruits as  it can keep supplied -with ''munitions. At this stage of the war  compulsory civil service is therefore more .probable of early realization than compulsory military service.  That Great Britain should  have more soldiers than it can  keep equipped is not surprising.  Most men would rather light  the enemy fa'cetoface in trenches than indirectly in the shell  foundries or supply factories.  Every British subject want to  help the Empire in its time of  trial and that the realization of  the supreme ���������military importance of-the work in the factories should come, after that of  the need for a.. large army in  the field is only natural.  It may. , there fore, happen  that a campaign of education  into the need for compulsory  employment in munition works  would be more necessary than  similar action concerning military service.-Nelson News.

Russia cannot be conquered by invasion and occupation like small and more central  countries.

Russia can well afford to lose man  for man. She can always raise  more men than her enemies,  though she may usually be outnumbered at particular points  by reason of her inferior mobility.
