Taylor, member for New Westminster: ' _    "-      .  " With reference to the subject  of pensions, it seems to rne that  the pension  committee  of this  house, in drawing -up  the scale  to which so much 'exception was  taken at="its,,-.very-'"inception,' altogether ignored  the fact that  this war is not. the same as any  other war.    On  every other occasion    when    British   armies  have been called the.servico has  been limited.    There has been a  rush to arms,  actual competition for the honor ancl distinction of serving in the army.  At  the  outbreak  of  this  war the  same was the  condition   in Canada and it was natural that at  that time  no attention  should  be paid to a matter of pensions.  What had boen before was sup-  posed to be good enough for the  present- occasion.     But,   with  the development of this war of  science, in which men are being  called upon for a hundred times  the service that any soldier was  ever called upon to give  in the  history of the world, it seems to  me that the nation should rise  to the occasion and deal with  these soldiers in. a manner 00m-  'mensurate with the sei vice they  have given  and   not in a manner based upon the very limited  service that any soldiers in the  past have  been  called  upon to  give.    I am "probably  extreme  in   my  view,   but I  put it forward   seriously  and   with   the  conviction that when these men  come  back  from the front and  commence   to  make   their   influence telt- in the communities  of Canada this view will be put-  forward   seriously   from   very'  many   quarters.    This  view  is  that our duty to the soldier who  is maimed, or lo'the dependents  of "the soldier  whoso  body lies  in France, is not  to give them  charith,    barely    sufficient    to  keep them forever the  lowest  class in  the  community  in the  way of comforts  of life, but to  place tho soldier himself, if he  comes  back  maimed, in a position  of equal comfort  to that  which ho occupied when he responded to  our  call to service  or wheu, as  we  intend   to  do  now, wo laid forcible hands on  him  and took him into the service.    If he survives, the spirit  of humanity should cause us to  feel  that nothing  is too  good  for that man and that the least  we can do is to make him financially as well off as he was be  fore tho war, -or,  if that man  does not return  at all, and his  dependents    are    bereft,    they  should  in  their  turn be put in  just as good a position as far as  the creature comforts of life aie  concerned  as  they would have  been if their provider had not  been  patriotic  enough to give  his services to-fehe country. This  is plain   compensation for the  soldier's services.    I  am asking  for   such, compensation   as   I  would be called upon to give to  a  man  in  my employ.' Those  men are in lhe-, employ  of  the  state and the state owes a duty  to  them,  the  duty of the employer towards his workmen in  civil life, and owes it in alarger  sense  because  of   the   terrible  hazards  which they take while  they are  in   his  employ.    The  answer to that will be: LoolrTat  the terrible burden you will impose on the state.   I admit the  burden that must be borne, but  if we do not restore the man or  his family,  then  that man  or  his dependents  are called upon  to carry for the rest of their  lives the burden  that  we have  refused ^to  assume; and it will  remain, so long as they do carry  it, in my estimation, a repi-oach  to    the   community   or  state  which permits  it.    If there  is  an  awful burden   it   is better  that it should be divided among  twenty  or    thirty   able-bodied  men    or    prosperous    families  than that  one  maimed man or  one bereft family should be al-  Inwofl   fv\   l-ioo-r*  -if   nlrtna  Mis.

F.- Loonier returned last  week after a month spent at  Soap Lake, Wash.  '  This week Tom Wilson started  development work on his property on Nickel Plate hill.  '  lowed to .bear it alone,  "It seems .to me that we  would most easily dispose of  the problem of our pensions  and our pension board by throwing the whole present scheme  into the discard and starting  afresh on a new basis of even-  handed justice to the men who  have served, and who no doubt  will serve us so splendidly, and  to the-helpless ones from whom  we have* taken the services of  their breadwinners."  Mrs. P. Swanson and Mrs. J.  A. McLeod of Princeton were  visitors in town Friday.last.  R. M. Mansfield,   manager of  the Bank of Montreal,   Prince-  lon,   was a  business visitor in  town yesterday.  Chas.

Mr. Moody  is. the missionary appointed to  to this parish and will hold  services in Princeton as well as  here. He expects to be ordained  a priest in autumn.  Yesterday Mrs. A. B. S. Stanley received a unique souvenir  of the war from her husband  who is in an ambulance corps  at the front. It is a letter written on a portion of the wing of  an aeroplane, with a hole punctured in it, presumably by a  bullet.  A. McGibbon returned Mon  day last after three weeks spent  in Nelson and vicinity, two of  which were spent at the Ains-  worth springs. He attended  the mining convention at Nelson and met a large number of  old acquaintances, as well as  many new men interested in  mining in tho Northwest. The  people, of Nelson did everything  possible lo make it (pleasant for  the visitors. Fred Star key had  charge of the arrangements.  iug^yhich was well patronized.  The~show was "above the average, and the impersonations of  Mr. Layne were exceptionally  good. Another performance  will be given this evening.  -A letter was received this  week from J. T. N.

Mr. Prideaux has patented an  improvement on the Ilolman  piston which ho hopes will  bring him in a piece of money.  The improvement has been 111  use at the Nickel Plate for some  time and has worked satisfactorily as well as being more  economical.  Saturday morning rock slides  came down and smashed the 20-  mile flume of the Daly Reduction company in three places.

They want to  go   to   Spokane,  and   will   have a ' right smart"  time getting there   alive, for in  the   b. S. A.   there  is  an   open  season   for strayed   alien   enemies.   It is about time Canadians    started    branding    mavericks from alien-enemy countries.   There  is  only  one way  to  stop   those fellows roaming  round the country���������shoot them.  If they are not spies their death  will  be  no loss to the country;  if  they  arc   spies,   the  sooner  they are   romovod^tho better.  The  war is only  in" its initial  stages, and may last five or even  ten' years, yet we Canadian fools  allow alien  enemies   to   roam  at will all over the country. All  the punishment  they receive is  "don't do it again   or you'll get  into   trouble,'    but   they   keep  right ou doing it. 4BM  SHE     GAZETTE,     HEDLEY.     3B.--.-D.  Kara!

If a person were  to  eat -nothing  but eggs he would get just the chemicals  needed for supporting life, but  the system  would not digest^an ex-,  elusive diet  like this.     The    person  trying  to  live  on   eggs   alone  would  _soon sicken, and if the diet were not  changed, would die.  If an average man' weighing' 150  pounds, were reduced to a fluid he  would yield 3,630 cubic feet of illuminating gas and hydrogen, or enough  to fill a balloon that would carry 155  pounds. ;���������'...  If-the nominal body were taken  just'as it is and all of the elements  extracted from it there would: be  found enough iron to make seven  large nails; enough fat for fourteen  pound candles; enough  make the lead in 65 gross of pencils,  and phosphorous enough to tip 820,-  000 matches. Besides all-this would  be found 20 teaspobnfuls of salt, 50  full-sized lumps of sugar and 28  quarts of water.  Thus it is evident that a human  being is a great chemical factory,  and the value, of a man in actual  materials is   considerable.  The. .100 dozen eggs, would yield  precisely the-same qualities of these  chemical elements, and even at the  present high rate of eggs most of us  would rather have the eggs used for  the purpose  than the man.  as  It Does  "Three  moves  arc as    bad  fire."

E  FOR THE SPRING  Do   Not   Use   Harsh  -fore or  French Co-operation  Eight French farmers, whose farm3  adjoin, and embrace nearly 600 acres  all told, last January formed a cooperative plowing association for'the  purpose of enabling them to get  through with their spring plowing  despite labor scarcity. They secured  k 25-horscpower tractor and a three-  furrow plow, the expense of the work  performed by the machine to' be rated according to the area cultivated  for each member. Lots were drawn  for the first use of the plow, and after the" machine has been around  once the order will be reversed, but  ;*[n all cases preference is to be given  for the heavier land, which can be  plowed only in fine weather.

Sweet, passed As-  sistent Surgeon, United  States  Public Health Service, is the author of a'  government  health  bulletin  on  "The  Transmission  of Disease  by,'   Flics,"  which corrtains  a  timely warning on  the   dangers   of  arsenic    fly  poison.  Dr.  Sweet considers their use a menace which threatens,   every    home.  That the fly poison peril is a real one  is proved by the fact that the American ��������� Press has    recorded    106    child  poisoning  cases  in the    last      three  years^  Dr. "Sweet advises his readers to  destroy flies some other way than  with arsenic fly poison. He says,  "Of .other fly poisons mentioned,  mention should be made, for the purpose of condemnation, of those composed of arsenic. Fatal cases of the  poisoning of children through the  -use of such compounds are far'. too  frequent, and owing, to-the resemblance of arsenical poisoning to summer diarrhoea and cholera infantum.  wc believe that the cases reported'do  not, by any means, comprise the to--  tal. Arsenical fly destroying devices must, therefore, be rated as extremely dangerous, and should never  be used, even if other measures arc  not at hand."  ay������ yew  Your food will continue to disagree with you, and cause dis**  tressvuntil you strengthen your  digestive organs, ana tone and  sweeten the stomach.

If, as Doctor Wiley estimates,  one-third of our food is wasted,  thrift in food migh\ be a very effective remedy .for some of our present  day domestic problems. With meals  costing thirty cents a pound, and  half bone and fat, eggs at five cents  each, butter fifty cents a pound, and  other things in proportion, we must  do some readjusting if we would keep  pace with the procession. You cannot increase your income half as  easy as you can make it go farther.  You need not do without porterhouse, but you can make it go a long  way. Learn the secret of French  thrift and find the secret of little  economics in food values.

Change of Seed an. Actual Injury  Will we ever learn that change of  seed does not necessarily mean an  improvement? Every, experiment so  far conducted has shown that a  change produced a decreased tonnage  and lowered quality "when other factors were alike.

Contentment in India  Large Portion of the Country Is Not  Under British Administration  "The notion prevails in the United  States that all India belongs to the  British aud is administered by  Ih'cm," says Saint Nihol/ Singh in  a recent/ interview.- "This is an  utterly 'erroneous idea. A very-  large and populous portion* of the  peninsula is in the possession of its  own people, and is ruled by thci.il  with little or no interference from  the British. I have coined the term  /'Indian India' to differentiate between the India belonging to Indians  and that in the -possession of the  British. Indian India, with its area  of 850,000 square miles, is almost  one-third as large a$ continental  United States. Its population, 7S,-  000,000 persons, is a little more than  four-fifths.that of this country. Politically, British India is united.' It  is divided into three presidencies  and twelve provinces, which arc under the supreme goyernment of India, presided over by the Viceroy  and Governor-General, who is under  the Secretary of State for India���������a  member of the British cabinet. Indian India, on the contrary, is not  one political  entity.  "During recent years I have had  the privilege of coming in close contact with several Indians who rule  in their own right and name, and I  have watched their public and private lives. Without a single exception, I have found the Indian rulers  to be men of great " administrative  capacity and statesmanship, all devoted to the welfare of their subjects and interested in all sorts of  reform movements. Not many public servants or business men in  America or elsewhere work so hard  as do these Indian potentates."  Hated by Germans for His Sympathy  With  British Prisoners  The plain talk by J. W. Gerard,  ex-minister to Germany, in New  York about the treatment given  prisoners by the Germans, is merely  a repetition of what he said to the  authorities in Berlin. His unpopularity in Berlin because of his refusal  to keep his eyes shut to conditions  was extreme. A_correspondent of an  English'paper, writing after escap  ing from the German capital, said'oi  Ambassador. Gerard:  "Of the neutral, ambassadors that I  met in Berlin the only one who  seemed to me to have any outstanding personality was Mr. Gerard, the  American ambassador, who shared  '���������with Mr. Lloyd George the reputation of being the best hated man in  the  Fatherland.  "At the Wilhelmslrasse he was  positively detested because of his  outspoken remarks about the disgraceful v condition of the British  prisoner camps in\ Germany, and  also because of his ^repeated warnings to the German government as  to the grave effect on German-  American diplomatic relations that  would be caused by resumption of  unlimited piracy. There was much  talk of a plot to murder him, and I  recall the great excitement .which  prevailed when he was the object of  a rude demonstration at the theatre."

How grandly  stands the constitution of Austria-  Hungary beside the constitutions^ of  States like France and America,  where the leaders of the nation are  condemned to be "'mere mouthpieces  for plutocrats.  "Austria declared war on Serbia  because our splendid heir to the  throne had been murdered, and because it was necessary to root out  the nests of the conspirators. How  absolutely moral was such a motive  for war! How 'grand the Austrian  idea of Stalcl"  Thc closer your laud is to a good  town, the more money il takes to buy  it. We all know that. About the  first thing the owner tries to- do when  you dicker for a piece of land, is to  justify the high price you are asking  by pointing out how close the land  is to town and the good roads leading to it. He knows this is the most  appealing argument he can put up.  Laud close to town and, adjoining  good roads is not only desirable because, crops can be marketed with the  least trouble and expense, but there  aie other social and economical advantages as well.  Consider the cold matter oi "what  a town is worth to the people owning land in the vicinity, measured  from a dollars and cents standpoint.  Mr._ 0.1*1. Johnson of the Alissouri  Agricultural Station made a careful  investigation of 650 farms and he  proved by actual figures what a lot  of us have known in a general way  for a long time. %  For instance, in the locality investigated, the 79 farms within two  miles of town had an average value  of .1*78.70 per acre as compared with  $70.20 per acre for the 183 farms  from two to four miles from town;  $60.90 per acre for the 126 farms  four to six,miles from town; $58 20  for the 113 farms six lo eight miles  from town, and $55.90 for the 149  farms over eight miles from  town.  Mr. Johnson says that the most  rapid decrease in value"** occurred in  the first six miles, after which the  difference of a mile or two from  town made less  relative difference.  Iu another instance, he points out  that 42 farms valued at $100 or more  per acre, had an average haul of  about two and one-half miles to market; 62 in the $80 group had nearly  three miles^ and the 275 in the $60  group five miles lo haul, while 246 in  the $40 group averaged six and one-  fourth miles  to  town. __....  These figures are startling, Listen  to this: ���������  In one. locality; investigated, a/farm  of 160 acres two and one-half/miles'  from town had a market value of  $16,000, while the same��������� kiud ot farm  located six and one-fourth miles from  town was only worth $6,400. And  still, if you told the man who owned  the first farm that his home town  was actually worth in dollars and  cents to him, personally, $10,000, he  wou'd probably spend a good deal of  time trying to show you - that he  would be better off without the'-town  at all. We have gotten so. in the'habit of lambasting our home ��������� town,  most of the time for some petty political" reason, that we frequently refuse to sec the truth when it is placed before us in actual figures.  Just the same,-when we get off by  ourselves, overcome our jealousies  and temporarily forget about the  town man that wc have it in for, then  we really have  to    admit    that    the  chants make the town just as the  water makes the lake. Of course,  other things have to be favorable,  but the fact remains, that without  merchants, you would have no town,  and the better the mercantile establishments, the better the town���������always .  Now, wc move along to the third  question. "How is the home town to  have good merchants?" Dear friends,  there is no secret about it at all.  Good stores iu your home town are  the result of growth. They have to  be invited, encouraged and maintain-^  ed. You have to get them just like  you mature superior cattle," horses  and hogs, by treating them fairly  and giving them a chance to grow.  In the language of the street, "You  can't play a lone hand in your community and get away with it very  long," and the business game is jus,t  the same. If the town is to help you,  you must help ,the town, and the  beauty of it is, by benefiting the  town, you always and invariably  benefit yourself most.  These benefits are direct and indirect. Building up the town adds  dollars to the value of your land and  other fixed investments. That point  is settled. Nobody seriously disputes  it. It means greater social and educational advantages, benefits that  cannot be measured by dollars and  cents, but while apparently indirect,  they are direct again in the sense  that they add to the value of your  fixed investments, because these are  among the desirable things for  which people generally are willing to  pay.  In summing up, as the lawyer?  say, sifting out all the evidence and  considering a few pertinent facts,  you first want a good home town,  and you want it as near to you as  possible���������and, further, you want  good roads leading to it.  Now, to have a good town, __ you  must have good stores���������there is no  other way to make it���������and to have  good stores and good merchants, yoti  must give them a chance to live_,  thrive and grow. You must treat  them fairly. You do not abuse your  stock, because such treatment doe*  not pay, and the same personal interest is at stake in community build=  ing. You must consider the merchants of your town as a community  investment in which you are both in,*'-  directly and directly interested. Yoil  arc a stockholder, as it were, in youf  home town, and the better you make  your home town, the better your in*-  vestment will be.  You can't make your home    town  better unless you are on the squard  with it and give the business interests (  there the proper chance for a normal  and legitimate growth. Remember  the story of the farmer who was so  selfish and short-sighted that he trretf  to make money by stunting his hogs,  home town is far aud away the most Whe? __Kfi,nal!y 1solcl. ,thc -���������"1?'

Once  wc commence asking questions, we  ho sooner have one of them -answered than wc ask another. Our first  question was "What's the good of  the home town?" and we answered it  by sayinc- that, among other things,  it really donated $10,000 to one man  and like amounts, proportionately, to  every other man owning land in the  community. '  And now wc ask the. second question, "What makes a.real, live, valuable home town?" Wc might dodge  the question by answering, "Lots of  things," but, really,-if we arc honest,  we will get close to the truth by saying, "The merchants," because without the merchants there would be no  town. Ifis just as impossible to have  a town without merchants as it is to  have a lake without water. The mer-  pric  Just how many of us have driven  into town with any thought of what  our 3oss would be if that town wcra  wiped out entirely and never replaced? Hoav many of us have considered that the town really meant any?  thing to us except for a little wild  talk on our part at limes? How-  many of us have considered that tha  merchants of the town were conferring upon us, and upon all members  of the community, advantages worth  in dollars and cents immeasurably  more than any profits they got out  of us?

" ���������  Some Peerage in Danger of Extinction Through Losses in War  Close upon 120 sons of peers have  so far fallen'-.in the campaign, and  of this number no fewer than 62  were heirs to titles. In some cases  a peer has lost two heirs in succession, Lord de Blaquicrc being the  latest to suffer-.this double bereavement, which'has- also fallen upon  Lord Stralhcden and Campbell has  lost son and eldest grandson.  In'a "number of cases the war has  resulted in peerages being in danger of extinction through the deaths  in action of, the only heirs. Unless  action is taken in the form of new  creations, with special remainders,  the murquisate of Lincolnshire and  the baronies of Knaresborough,  riayfair, , Ribblcsdalc, liosmead,  Slainfordham, St. Davids, and dc  Blaquicrc are likely lo lapse.

City Ways ior_  Country Stores  Country Merchant  Can Utilize    City  Store Methods to Good  Advantage  A department store draws a fine  trade from the surrounding farming  sections because the proprietor pays  as much attention to keeping country  customers informed about what is  going on in the store as he does to  keeping city shoppers posted.  This merchant values .his country  patronage. He considers" it worth a  good deal of effort, and says it is a  mistake to think that country customers are either small buyers or- bargain hunters of cheap goods. Many  of\_thcm still cling to, the end-of-the-  weck buying habit, which he caters  to. 'They also have a keen eye for  such legitimate bargains as occur in  every store through stock moving.  Again, they are attracted even more  by the regular arrival of new merchandise in his different departments  ~nd the store appeals to them most  of all as a place where something is  always happening in merchandise  - Much has been said about the  handicaps suffered by country stores  iu competition with city stores and  mail order houses. Probably the  chief difficulty is that -customers of  ������������������he average country store have never  been taught to watch it as a place  where something interesting in merchandise may happen at almost any  time. The country merchant gets in  goods from week, to week. But Iris  customers usually have to discover  for themselves what is new in ribbons, shoes, crockery or breakfast  foods, because he docs not advertise  novelties, or even display them.   -  From time to time the country  merchant could gather up dead ends  or merchandise and close them out  at cut prices, turning them into mon-  e> and fresh stock. The city stores  all do that. But such sales are rare  in  country stores.  Iu meeting competition the country  merchant has attached too 'much importance to the fancied attractions of  cheapness. Here is a skillful city  merchant who assures him that  cheapness is not the best appeal to  country customers.-  City stores use merchandise as an  attraction���������as     news. They    draw  customers because everybody is interested in seeing what is new, novel  and pretty, and such displays educate  people in personal appearance and  comfort.  The country merchant cannot compete in size and range of stock. But  what he has he can show to bettei  advantage, and he can..teach customers that on one day of the week, at-  lcast, if they visit his store, they will  find new goods worth seeing, placed  where they can be seen, as w*ell as  find old goods at money-saving  prices. On a small scale almost  every country store can utilize these  city store methods. It is common  mercantile experience That they pay  \\herever used intelligently.���������The  Commercial.    .     .,.  Platinum $100 per Ounce  War Has Almost Completely Cut' Off  the Supply  The war in Europe has cut off the  supply of platinum.

The warring nations have forbidden their citizens  to export platinum, because 'it is  used in making munitions, and the  consequent shortage has greatly inconvenienced manufacturers of "fine  jewelry and of electrical, photo-  giaphic, dental and surgical supplies,  in Germany many manufacturers  have'.'already substituted where they  can an alloy of rhodium and palladium, two other metals of the platinum family.

May Yet Be Forced to    Save Germany by Abdicating  It looks as if Bavaria is to be the  stormy petrel of the German Empire.  It is' well-known that the South-  German party is more alive today  than it has been since Bismarck  "threw dust in its eyes,"'and got his  Conferedation scheme agreed to by  Bavarian rulers. An association,  known as the South Men of Germany  lias issued a pamphlet in** which the  writer compares the situation in  Germany today with that of France  ii; 1814 and 1815, and asks if the  Kaiser will save Germany by abdication as Napoleon saved France. It  says that victory for Germany is impossible, and that the opinion is gaining ground in The country that only  a change of dynasty can mitigate the  conditions of defeat.  The writer suggests that the substitution of Wittelsbach- (the House  of Bavaria) for Hohenzollern would  be a guarantee for peace in Europe  and also offer the prospect of a  Greater  Germany  in' spite  of  defeat.  He advances a program of "Great  Gcrmanists," as against that of the  Fan-Germans, and defines it as the  inclusion of the Germans of the Austrian Empire, which is clearly approaching its death agony. ' He  thinks that the substitution of Wittelsbach for Hohenzollern .would  facilitate the inclusion of Austrian  Germans in the Empire and at the  same time would render possible the  establishment of cordial relations  with England and France, who would  fever willingly consent to treat with  the  Kaiser or,the  Crown  Prince.  Commenting upon the pamphlet,  the Volksrecht says that it represents  a movement against the Hohcnzoll-  crns which is widely spread in Bavaria and practically all South  many.

But one  thing you can discern, for it is borne  in on you with every wind of - the  spirit that blows. A force of_ increasing power, mobility, morale,  stands against a force decreasing re-  laiively in all these particulars. The  tests of this assertion? They are  nany. Today the Franco-British  armies are an essentially unharrassed  body of soldiers and workers, pursuing their many tasks of transport,  fortification, artillery menace and  preparation, with little interruption  from the enemy. The.German armies arean esesntially harrassed body.  Their trenches, batteries, lines" of-  communication, are more constantly  under.fire from a greater number of  guns, and are more often raided, as  the result of offensive actions, small  and great, a heavy drain of prisoners  and a considerable and growing  stream of deserters, whose excuses  for finding their way from their'lines  to ours fail to cover the truth that'  they are.sick of the war. No such  diminution affects the other. The  fiercer, pressure. ,of "the; grand assault  has been such as to cause a loss in  the battles of The Somme which a  calculation, .'based . on The German  statistics, fixes at ,700,000 men, drawn  from over 130 divisions���������all. passed  through the fire of these engagements. There is riot a comparable  total of British and French losses.  The general effect of annoyance  and attrition reflects itself, again, in  the nervous, homesick, desperately  weary and unhappy tone of. the Tetters of the German soldiers and The  physical condition of the prisoners.

In connection with this convention,  a Calgary, newspaper takes the opportunity- of voicing-what western  Canada, as"evcry country "of _ the  world, owes to the Dane, the aristocrat of dairymen- wherever- he goes -  "For years,", says 'the Morning Al-  bertan, "Denmark has monopolized  the choicest markets of-Great Britain for high-grade butter. Cold storage facilities'have enabled Canada to  compete with Denmark to some extent, but the-finer flavor, the superior  quality and the better keeping properties of the standardized product of  the highly organized ' industry of  Denmark has always given the Danish butter preference. Once out of  cold storage, the Canadian butter deteriorated. Canadians attempted the  methods of pasteurization, in which  the Danes were so successful, but  they failed. They did succeed in  making a better butter than they  could make from raw cream, but it  was characterized by a 'fishy' flavor,  never to be "forgotten on a sensitive  palate. Montreal shipments became  notorious with the trade for a  'twang.'  "For some years all the resources  -of. the dairy division of the depart-  n cnl ol agriculture have been devoted to experiments fo overcome'this.  Every province has taken what steps  it could in the matter. It remained  for'the dairy commissioner of Alberta, Mr. C-. "Marker, working in cooperation with the creameries and  buttcmiakcrs" of this young province,  to overcome' all obstacles in the  course of a single year. A few  months ago a carload of Alberta butter went lo the old country and established the fact that henceforth  Canadian butter can compete with  all comers without a handicap. The  notorious 'twang' is forever eliminated. In two-years Alberta has cap-  lured her own market, the market of  the coast, and lhe~markets of Toronto and Montreal with her butter of  superior flavor and keeping qualities.  "The dairy commissioner began by  introducing the most up-to-date  scientific methods of grading ancl  standardizing cream and butter in  every creamery throughout the province, just as soon as the'dimensions  of the industry warranted such regulation. ' After that he began a series of experiments, through the hut-  As. a icrmakers in various creameries. To  them he outlined the basic principles  and directed the course to be~ pursued. Early in 1916, the perfect  method was evolved. Since then  Alberta creameries have manufactured 8,400,000 pounds "of butter with  the highest percentage of special  grade ever produced in Canada. Alberta has become the peacemaker of  the Dominion. The dairymen of AI-.  berta have given a demonstration of  successful co-operation which is in itself a wonderful thing and an augury  for the future of this province.  "Such an achievement is an enviable pedestal for any public official.  It crowns Mr. Marker's 16 and more  years of patient effort in this office  villi complete success. It is a gift  of service lo empire, the patriotism  of which cannot be measured.  "It is perhaps not out of place to  note here one significant fact. Mi-.  Marker; in the official service of Alberta and loyal to Canada, is by  birth a Dane. Associated with him  in his successful enterprise are a considerable number of his fellow-countrymen who are among the,most efficient dairymen and best citizens of  this province." To the Danish-Canadian leadership of Mr. Marker, and  the loyal and intelligent pcrservcr-  ance of his compatriots, the Dominion of Canada owes one of "the most  Peasants are Saving Money and Rising in  the World  _ It is beyond question that the Russian peasant, who constitutes 80 per  cent, of the population of Russia, has  now in his hands an unprecedented  amount of money, the,result of more  o.mplo.ymcnt, much higher wages than  were ever before paid, and a new habit of saving forced upon him by the  culling off of his former cxpendilur.es  of vodka, and by a shortage in the  supply of things he wants for his  farming and  household  operations.  He is waiting for a chance to  spend his savings for what he really  wants, says a writer in "Russia."  Those savings aggregate hundreds of  millions of dollars. Buying farm machinery is said to be the one great  outlet for them. The writer continues.       -      c '  "It should be considered that when  a man has accumulated an unexpectedly large amount of money he is  pretty certain to spend a large portion of it for things he has long wanted,-but lias been unable to get. The  desires of the Russian peasant, taking, him en masse, arc mainly restricted to his farm and to his-home manufacturers, if he carries on any such.  A better house, and, especially, better furniture, appeal to him; but like  the farmer everywhere else in the  world, his first interest is to get more  money out of liis land. **���������  "The importance of machinery in  helping him to this result has been  strongly brought home to ' him by  a variety of agencies, not the least  effective of these being the increased  profits of such of his neighbors as  have taken themselves out of the  communal system of land holding  and cultivation and have contrived to  secure modern agricultural machinery. An example of the peasant's appreciation of modern equipment is  provided by'the agricultural "artels,"  or unions, which have multiplied in  consequence of the farm labor shortage due to the recruiting of the armies These artels have largely resorted to the use of modern machinery, purchased usually by a group oi  peasant farmers, who often rent the  services of themselves and their machines to other farmers Uot members  of the arlel.  "That this expectation of peasant  expenditures for farm machines that  will be very large in the aggregate is  ���������ucll founded seems hardly open to  contradiction."  It has been found necessary to open in 'Russia, as rapidly as possible,  some 5,000 new branches of the State  Savings Bank. Also, parish banks,  to be opened to the number of about  2,000, represent a new and simple  type' of savings agency, for whiclr  arrangements have been agreed upon"  between the ministry of finance and  the holy synod. The archpricsls of  the churches will superintend the operations of these latter banks, which  will receive and pay out deposits, but  will not undertake any other banking operations.  What will be a great innovation in  banking so far ss the bulk of the  Russian population is concerned is  the proposed introduction by the  Stale Savings Bank of payments by  check. This device, so familiar to  us, is still'strange to most of Russia.  There is no doubt that its wide introduction and use in that' country will  do much to modernize and facilitate  the conduct of business in its vast  interior.  It is proposed also, to introduce in  F.ussia what is known as the money-  box..systcm of savings, on the mode!  of foreign institutions, particularly  of the British government savings  banks. In issuing these saving boxes to houses, the plan is to charge a  security of $1.54 (3 rubles), which  will be' credited as a deposit. The  carrying out of this plan has been  deferred thus far by lack of moneyboxes.  Prevention of Coal Shortage  Buy Your Coal in ,the Summer, and  -   ������tock Up for the Winter  This winter we have had a coal  "famine" and that suffering has accompanied the shortage of this necessity is-undcniable. The average citizen has a notoriously short memory,  Armenia's  Crown of Thorns  of  Zangwill's Poignant Pen-Picture  the. Sufferings of a Race  Israel Zangwill, the author, in a letter supporting the aims of the Arme-  but now is the time to impress upon,  nian and Syrian Relief Fund, says.  him that, in many coses, the suffer  iilg was due to lack cf foresight. In  Canada many people buy in small  quantities���������often only one ton. If,  for any cause, 'there is a shortage of  coal, improvident householders demand thai the coal dealers do the impossible, namely thai they supply  fuel that is unobtainable. Whereas,  had they purchased their coal in the  summer or autumn, there would he  ample supplies available.  While some large consumers, such  as manufacturers, cannot store a six  months' 'supply, most householders  can, with their present bins or with  enlarged bins, store coal to meet their  rec-uireinenls till March or April.  "Tn recent vears, we have had two  'coal "famines," first in 1901-02, the  ye,ar of the coal miners' strike, and,  second, this year, when the scverilyr  of the weather and the extraordinary  prosperity in the United Stales caused an unprecedented congestion of  freight. A survey.of conditions iu  the United Slates demonstrates that  in the future there will be more coal  "famines" than in the past and that  they will occur at shorter intervals,  l-'or this there is only one remedy.  Buy your coal in the summer. If  you have not sufficient storage, enlarge your coal bin.  Catastrophe to  "Heavenly" Plates  Thrift in  Cooking  Ill-Luck Attends the Making    of    a  Celestial Map in India  About ten years ago an Indian F.R.  A.S., presented to the. late Nizam of  Hyderabad two large telescopes, a  gift which induced the Nizam to establish an observatory in his dominions, lavishly equipped with up-to-  date instruments.  His Highness also invited an English astronomer, Mr. R. Pocock, to  lake charge of the observatory, and  placed its resources at the disposal  of the International Committee,  which for some quarter of a century  has been taking the great photographic map of the heavens which is  to form the basis of the Astrographic  Chart and  Catalogue.  Since the death of the founder of  the Hyderabad Observatory in 1911,  his successor, the present Nizam, has  continued to take a deep interest in  the work connected with the photographic map of the stars, and recently ordered a consignment of  special plates for the purpose fron.  England. *  These plates, unfortunately, were  on the Persia, whiclr was torpedoed  and sunk in the Mediterranean. To  icplacc them more plates were dispatched, and these were" on the  Maloja, which was also submarined  on  its  way to India.  Undeterred by this run of bad luck,  the Nizam ordered a third batch,  which have arrived quite safely, and  the work on the Hyderabad section  of the celestial map has again been  resumeds- It is estimated, that, when  finished, one copy of the complete  map will cost at least $5,000 to produce.  "From more than one area of the  war zone, from Belgium, from Gali-  cia, from Turkish Armenia, the same  story reaches us, the same dread saga  of the wanderings of whole populations under the spur of massacre,  rape, hunger.

But Belgium has almost all the  world for her friends, ancl the faith  in restoration goes before her exiles  like a pillar of cloud by day and a  pillar of fire by night. Even the Jews  ol" the Pale, torn and tossed between  the alternate victors, begin to find organized help and behold some faint  gleam of Zion upon the political horizon. On Ararat alone no ark can  rest. For Armenia alone there is the  cry without answer, "Watchman,  what of the night?"  Only for a minority can there be  political redemption. - Let us at least  bring physical salvation to their  agonizing remnant.  Sister nations I have been accustomed to think the Armenians and  the"*Jews, both hail from 'sisterlands  of the cradle of civilization. Both  come trailing clouds of glory from '  the purple days of Persia and Babylon. Both-have borne the shock of  the ancient and mediaeval empires  and of the militant migrations of  their races, and both hold lo their  original faith, for if the one was the  firsl preacher of Jehovah, the other-  was the first nation to profess Jesus.  And sisters too in sorrow, although  exiled, scattered, persecuted, massacred.  Sisters, forsooth, yet not equal in  suffering. Hitherto through the long  centuries the crown of martyrdom  has been pre-eminently Israel's. And  as day by day during this war of war-r  there came to me by dark letter or  whisper the tale of her woes in the  central war zone I said to myself,  "Surely the cup is full. Surely no  people on earth has had such a measure of gall and'vinegar lo drain."*  But I was mistaken. One people  has suffered more. That people  whose ancient realm held the legendary Eden has now for abiding place  the pit of hell. I bow before this  higher majesty of sorrow.

It is called  "mulatinho." Over 2,000 tons of it  were shipped from January 1 to October 31, 1916, from the state of'Sao  Paujo_-L0-The different slates of Brazil aud to foreign countries, particularly to Europe, for the feeding of  the Allied soldiers, and they declare  that soldiers iu the trenches are  growing fat on it. It is expected  that an immense acreage will he  planted--, this season, and that the  product will come into direct competition with wheat. It is said that  the flavor of these beans is so fascinating that they are preferred to any  preparation of wheat. ��������� Omaha  World-Herald.  Some Good Suggestions are Made by  an Economy Expert  There are many ways of saving  money on food these days of need of  thrift, but Miss Pearl MacDonald, a  Pittsburg economy expert, has suggested a good one, in the making and  eating of more soup. "In the making  of soups," she said, "meats and  bone can be used which are not used  at all by American women." The  tougher cuts of meat which arc'  cheaper, she adds, contain'more fibre,  more flavor and more nutrition than  the tender and expensive steaks.  This is one way of avoiding waste  and making use of our resources. W  high prices teach economy of that  kind, they will be a blessing in disguise, through increasing individual  resourcefulness and self-reliance.  Food experts, while on the subject  of old-fashioned economics, should  not neglect the lowly pancake or the  other numerous ways in which flour  can be used, for flour, even though  higher than in the days of seventy-five  cent wheat, is still one of the cheapest and best of foods. It is the staff  of life, as it always has been since the  earliest times of recorded history.���������  Minneapolis Journal.

Hens Pay  -Experiments Prove     That    a    Good  Profit Can be Made  A good hen can be raised for  about ������1, she can be kept for one  year after beginning to lay for about  $1.25, her eggs for a year, estimating  twelve dozen at 25 cents a dozen, will  be worth $3 and the hen will be  worth 50 cents when through laying  at  the end of her pullet year.  This is a return of $1.25 on an investment of about 55 per cent., not  counting labor or depreciation of  plant.      ������������������-. .. '  If we count 25 cents as the cost  of caring for a hen one year and 10  per cent, for depreciation of plant  there still, remains over 20 percent, net profit on the investment.  These facts were brought out in  a Missouri experiment where fifty-  five White Leghorn pullets were kept  for a year's laying, all the feed that  was fed to the hens being weighed  and the eggs being sold at market  prices. The fifty-five hens produced  twelve dozen eggs each, which were  sold for $157.17. The cost of keeping the fifty-five hens one year was  866.27, reckoning feed prices at about  average market rate in 1915. The  lions were fed a well balanced ration  and had the run of a yard 100 feet  square. The price of eggs for the  year averaged approximately 25 cen'.s  a dozen.  From the foregoing figures it will  bo seen that where one has good  hens to start with and handles them  properly a net profit of considerably  over $1 a .year each can be count xl  on from a flock of that size.  But the know how is just as im-  poitant in handling hens for profitable returns as is the case with any  other kind of complicated business.���������  Farm  and  Fireside.  If  Struggle  Continues  Shoe    Supply  Will Proy,e Quite Inadequate  "A barefooted Europe is not im-  piobable if this war continues," said  John F. Stucke, \ ice-president of The  American Chamber of Commerce in  Italy, and General Manager of an  American shoe machinery company,  in an interview concerning supply  and business conditions met by  Americans abroad.  "At the present time a pair ol  heavy mountain shoes lasts a soldier  but six" weeks," he said. "These  shoes have their heels and soles  studded with nails at that. The  shoes arc largely made in Italy, but  with American machinery and  American lcathcr,__and the quality of  Ihc materials is the best we can "ur-  nish, but that quality is of course inferior lo that sold before the war.  When manufactured by the hundred  thousand these shoes cost the government about four dollars each. But  the supply is. always behind lhe demand, since materials arrive very  slowly from America. On one ship,  the Palmcro, which was torpedoed in  the Mediterranean off the coast of  Spain in early December, the material for nearly a half a million pairs  of shoes was lost.  "The retail store trade in Italy is  now obliged to pay nearly seven dollars wholesale for shoes that before  the war cost three and a half, and it  is probable that American shoes will  be selling in Italy soon for ton and  twelve dollars the pair.' The American shoes, because of their shape and  lit, have long been the chief product  on the. market here, and particularly .  since the war, as the "hand-made .sho<"  cannot be made quickly enough."

"So you thought it better to let  Mr.^Wright go scot-free, after committing a murderous- attack upon Mr.  Moorhampton, than to inform Lord  Moorhampton of the truth?"  "I thought il best to wait till Mr.  Moorhampton was well, so that he  could take proceedings himself if he  liked," said the clerk sullenly, "I've  done no harm. On the contrary,  I've done my best for everybody.  Whatever happens, they can't get at  me."  Mabin rose.  "Well, you will have an opportunity  of saying everything by and by," she  said. "And so will Mr. Fryer, I imagine."  The clerk went round the table  after her and said eagerly, in a low  voice:  "Fryer had no hand in it, you may  be sure.    He hasn't pluck enough."  "He  must  have  known   something  beforehand!"  "Well, I dare say he knew an attempt would be made to get Ciprian  Moorhampton to keep awav from  Heath Hill."  They were out iu the street by this |  time, the clerk keeping close  lo Ma-i  bin,  and looking nervously    at    her, I  evidently afraid of what she    might  do to discredit him for his attempts  to combine philanthropy with discretion.  Mabin was anxious to get away,  and the clerk had no means of detaining her. With a last appeal to  her for consideration of the difficulties of his position, he let her go.  She went back to Maida Vale'with  ���������a. little more cheerfulness than she  had come away from it. After the  interview she had had -with him that  morning, it was vey unlikely that  the clerk would make any attempt  to deny the facts of the meeting at  the office, or of the attack whiclr  had been made on Ciprian Moorhampton. Also, she had the satisfaction of knowing that she had'  made no mistake about the identity  of the assailant; it was Joe Wright  who had tried to murder Ciprian,  ignorant of the fact that, if he had  succeeded, he would only have removed one obstacle out of the way,  'and .that there would remain another  in the pctfton of little Julius.  She thought she could now write  such a letter to Lord Moorhampton  ���������as would compel his attention, and  perhaps induce him to make such inquiries as would in the end force  him to turn his wife's brother out of  Heath Hill.  And- Mabin knew that, until, this  was done, there would be no absolute safety for the boy as long as  liis father was too ill to protect  him.  XVas Ciprian ill now? She could  not tell. She had been nearly a  week away from Heath Hill, and she  thought that, by this time, he ought  to be far enough on the way to re  covcry to be ahle to bear such  to know whether Julius was with  her, it was only loo plain the child  was lost. He had gone away, or  been taken away from Heath Hill,  .'���������lid his grandfather did not know  where to find hhn.  The  woman" at   ncr    side  recalled  her to herself.  "There's a reply paid, miss."   '  Mabin  bowed  her  head,    for    she  could   not   speak.       She "wrote     the  answer on  the form given lo her:  "Have seen or heard nothing- of  Julius; please write."  She handed the paper to the servant, and sank down into a chair,  utterly overwhelmed by the blow.  Julius was lost, decoyed away, perhaps, by the wretch 'Wright. Or  perhaps he was lying dead, murdered by the same hands that had attacked his father, in some outlying  corner of the grounds.  She felt as if the end of her  world had come. No news of Ciprian, and she felt sure that, if he had  been  well  again,    she    would    have  Counter Check  Or Sales Books  would  interview with his father as  have  the  result  of driving    Wright  . out of the house.

She had finished her letter, and  was about to fasten the envelope,  when the woman whom she engaged  by the day to work for her while  Mrs. Wrest was away, came into  the room.  "A letter for me?" asked Mabin,  who had heard the double knock at  the door.  "No miss.    A telegram.  Mabin, with a sinking heart, tore  the brown envelope.

The girl felt as if the very soul  had died within her, as if, with the  boy wdiosc guardian she had constituted herself, all the interest the  world had for her had disappeared.  li she had dared, if she had not  been afraid of causing more mischief, she would have asked permission to go back to Heath Hill. But  it_ seemed to her that it would be  wiser for her lo stay here, at the  house where little Julius knew she  lived, for her instinct told her that  it would be to her he would have  come if he had left Heath Hill of  his own accord.  This thought gave her a gleam of  hope. The boy loved her, had never beeir so happy as when with her  and had seemed to place her quite  naturally in the position of his nearest and dearest friend. What more  likely than that, if he got a chance,  he should try to find his way back to  her if he found himself unhappy at  Heath Hill when she had left it?  Julius was a high-spirited child,  pnd the habit of travelling with his  father had made him extraordinarily  self-reliant for his age. ^  Poor Mabin, .therefore,-* tried lo  comfort herself" with the hope that  the boy might find means of reaching the maisonette; and all the rest  of the day, until il grew too dark lo  sec, she sal at the window of the  front room, looking out, hoping  against hope to see the child come  back to her.

"Miss Wrest is the boy there?" he.  said in a hoarse whisper as he staggered into the hall.  She shook her head.  "No.    I have seen nothing of him.  I got the telegram and I answered.  Come in, and tell me everything."  But he had made a movement a's  if to_ stagger clown the steps again.  Mabin, who saw that lie was still  wretchedly ill, thin and white and  wasted, with" the glare of fever in  his eyes, made him come into the  sitting-room and sit down. Her own  grief subsided into the background  at once in face of the man's illness,  and of the sorrow which-, possessed  him.   .  "I thought," said he hoarsely, "that  the little beggar '.'might have come  here, that there might be some hope.  He was so fond of you. He could  talk of nothing else."  The tears were falling fast down  Mabin's  cheeks.        -  "I ought never to have come  away," she murmured brokenly. "I  ought to have stayed there���������iu spite  of them."  Ciprian sat up and shook his head.  He was worn out, weary, ill, and the  sight of him smote Mabin to The  heart. '  "Let me get you some wine," said  she, as she sprang up and crossed the  room to the sideboard where    Mrs,  3*  knew that he was in no fit slate to  be wandering about London in the  fog, which was thick outside, and she  was resolved that, having once got  him into her care, she would keep  him until she was sure she could' let  him go with safety to himself.  (To Be Continued,!)  The Torpedo  Engine of Destruction the Invention  of an Englishman  When  a German U-boat sends    a  torepdo on its mission of destruction  it is' utilizing a weapon    of    British"  origin,  since  the  modern  locomotive  torpedo was flic invention of Whitehead, a British  engineer.     It was in  1877, forty    years    ago,  ..that      the J  Whitehead   torpedo   first   came     into I  notice.     Whitehead's  original  torpedo carried twenty-six pounds of gun-  cotton and travelled eighteen knots.  The. twenty-one-inch Whitehead torpedo now in use carries 330 pounds  of gun-cotton and has    a    range of  over six miles, at a speed of    thirty  knots.    At a range of four miles its  speed is about forty-five knots.  The  explosive  is "packed in  the  head    of  the  torpedo,  and   is "usually guncot-  lon, although^ the Germans use what  they call trinitrotoluene.      The    explosion is    caused    by   a steel    rod  which projects a  few inches beyond  the head  of the misslc.     When  this  rod or striker comes in contact with  any unyielding  substance,  such  as  a  ship's side, it is pressed back againsl  the detonation,  and, woosh!

Madness Since Struggle Began  Probably the average man is under  the impression that war has a tendency to increase lunacy. It is indeed  generally considered that anything so*  destructive of life and propcrty-r-^so  appaling in its nature, would have an  exceedingly perturbing effect upon  the human mind and cause innumerable cascsof mental derangement.  Paradoxical, however, as it may  seem, war has just an opposite result-  According to the returns issued by  the various asylum authorities since  the war began, there has been a  marked reduction in insanity.  It might, of course, be suggested  that this is due to the fact of so  many men being drawn away from  the distracting competition of the industrial world into the army, where  life, if more precarious is more varied and interesting. This, no doubt,  is a contributory cause. But recent  returns show a reduction amongst  women as well as mc/i.  What, thcn,--are the general reasons adduced by the experts for this  satisfactory state of things? Well, in  times of peace they 'tell us that life  is dreary ancl monotonous, and,'in order lo-vary their existence, people  resort to forms of amusements  which, instead of affording them  genuine .recrqation . or 'gratification,  only,-producc Ta'rrguidncss and ennui.  When, however, a great war breaks  out, it dispels the monotony of our  lives, and gives us serious and practical things to consider. Hence, in  stead of causing intellectual brca^  down, it rather generates new intel  lectual energies.  Minard's Liniment for  Sale  i     where.  Every  Willie Wants  to Know  "Pa."  "Yes, my son."

Consfcition   was   to   make   the  Senate a l^resentative  body.  If so, their good intentions have  after fifty yours  arrived   right  in  tho stoke hole.    Instead  of  a well-balanced legislative body  in which all industrial and professional   interests   are   repre-*  represented,    we    find   a   lopsided    aggregation    of    party-  heelers, professional  men, lumbermen and wealthy  manufacturers.

As  now constituted tho Senate is partizan,  Conservative and Liberal, with  its government lender and  its  opposition leader.

It is  possible that a Napoleon may  be found to guide the people past the danger point in  their blind groping for representative government and liberty; if not, anarchy and the  dismemberment of the empire.  If the war continues  much  longer, people will  be estimating their neighbors in powder  fodder values. Even the young,  able-bodied   parsons    are   not  exempt from a war-value appraisement.    Last week  there  was a he  hair-dresser   in���������the  district.   When looking at his  splendid physique one could not  help thinking how  much more  useful he would be to humanity  fighting for world  liberty than  in   fitting "rats" to   the female  head.  There was a time when the  the people of  this  province almost believed that the practice  of appointing members of the  legislature     on     commissions  would be abolished.    Evidently  that stage in  our political evolution has not yet arrived.    We  were told that were the government   of   the province   in the  hands of economical and patriotic men the revenues would be  devoted to public improvements  and developing natural  resources; we have not yet attained  that degree of patriotism.   It  is possible  that Mr.  Brewster  believed ho could carry out his  pre-election promises.  It is possible that tho intention of those who had in charge  the   framing of the Canadian  Another provincial commission  has  been .started   on   its  long journey at $20 a day and  expenses.     This   time   it   is    a  booze commission,  on  its  way  to England to ascertain whether  a wind-jamming  slacker from  Winnipeg   or   officers   on   the  fighting    line   told   the   truth  about the soldiers' vote on prohibition.   One would think that  the first care of the government  would  be to avoid gratuitous  insult to the men  at tlie front  by appointing a  commission to  investigate  their  honor on the  word  of aa adventurer.    Prohibition, we regret to say, was  defeated, but it is  not going to  help  a lost^ cause for the"temperance people to  endeavor to  nullify by dishonor-ablejmethods  the  verdict   of  a  majority of  those voting.   Tlie  temperance  people  entered  into an agreement with the Bowser govern-  to settle the question by plebiscite.    If   the, majority  of   the  electors voted in favor of it the  Prohibition Act would  go into  effect July 1; if the majority  was    against   prohibition,   the  question   would  not  come   up  again   for * four years.    Every  one   supposed   the   agreement  would  be  binding on both parties.      The   soldiers    voted   on  women's suffrage and for members of the legislature.   No one  questioned  the vote   iu either  case.   It remained for the temperance loaders, composed principally of ministers of the  gospel who should not  be deficient  in charity, to accuse the soldiers  of wrong doing.   A commission  has gone to the Old   Country���������  a commission composed of politicians���������to  investigate ancl inquire into  and pass judgment  on the honor of the  men who  have made the great sacrifice or  are still fighting for our liberty.  The   outrageous   impertinence  of even the  suggestion of such  a   com mission   is   too    utterly  brutal  and   uncouth   to be conceived  by  any  but  persons of  the lowest intelligence.  _ occurred  during the week on any of the  battle fronts. On" the Western  front the French and British  have made slight gains. The  Italians also are pushing the  enemy back and have made considerable gains in a difficult  country'. For the present tho  Russians might just as well  be eliminated from the equation. They are a mob that  haven't oven reached tho stage  of intelligence of the B. G. Socialist orator, which is about as  crude a conception of government as could-possible emanate  from the human mouth, leaving out of consideration any  possibility of mental connection,  Common Sense.  No more  amazing-  thins  has  amazing  k...^  happened in the  war than that  all bnt unanimous  adoption by  the  United States Congress of  the   principle   and  practioe  of  military conscription. Conscription was believed to be a thing  belonging    to   militaristic   Europe.    It was an old-world conception.   In  the  new world of  light  and  liborty it could have  no    part.      William    Jennings  Bryan   told  his  fellow citizens  that at the threat of war a million men would spring instantly  to   arms.     But   Congress   saw  that Bryan -was not a prophet  to be relied upon, for volunteers  throughout America numbered  but a  few  thousand in several  weeks.���������London Free Press,  NEEDS  Poultry netting, 2, 3, 4, 5-and 6-ft; widths,  50-yard rolls, $5.50, $6.50, $7.50, ^.SORoli. -  Wire cloth for windows and doors, 30-in.  30c. yard; 36-inch. 35c. a yard: ,   r  , Garden hose, 50-fobt lengths with fittings,'  $8, $8.50, $9.50 and $11:' " .'-" "'  -    Pipe and Hose fittings, all kinds and sizes  Hoes 90c, Rakes $1.15, Hay Forks $i;25,  Manure Forks $2, Spud Forks $1.75, Garden Trowels 25c.,-' Weeders 20c, Shovels,- 7  Picks, Mattocks, Wheelbarrows. -  idley Trading 6o.
