The.following interesting letter was received this week by  G. P. Jones  from Corp. Meher:  Mr. G. P.  Jones : I received  your kind and  welcome letter,  dated April  3rd,  and   enjoyed  reading1   it   very  much.    I got  your letter May 0th  at  S p. 111.  by tho night  carrying party, as  I "was up in the trenches and at  ���������I next morning I got into a very  hot hole.  ,We  were  outdoing  our work when Frit/, opened up  a  hellish artillery  lire.    I  had  10 men on my relief that morning,   12  of our men and -1 imperials, which we  have to have  on all reliefs that go out. There  being no, .sergeant on  duty, T  blew   my whistle,   telling   my  lance-corporal to take the men  out of the line  of'lire  and get  under cover,  taking cover myself until about 5 o'clock. About  that  time  the air scouts were  getting busy.    I whistled again  for the lance > corporal and told  him  to  tell the  men to stand  fast and ho and I-would go back  and  cover up  the  work until  later on, as the scouts would get  next to it.    We  were not back  very long when  Fritz put over  a shrapnel, .bursting about 100  feet above my head.   I received  four wounds, one in the leg, two  in   the   thigh   and' one  in the  cheek.    About  that time they  were coming fast.    Infixed my  cheek  up "..with" my owii dressing till such time as 1 could get  out.    I  was  taken   to' tho Canadian hospital for ,trejitment  and   was* there  eight days before they would Xake out any  shrapnel.    My  cheek gave  me  lots of pain.    Probing arid'cutting  is   very  unpleasant" I can  tell you.    If it  hadn't been for  my,   helmet   I    wouldn't   have  been  able  to   write you such a  quick  reply, - and   tho chances  are never.   It broke ray helmet  in four places.    They are a fine  thing 'for shrapnel  bullets.    1  am getting on  fine  and will be  doing light duty in a few'dnys,  and   then  back   again   to  the  same, old  thing.   I  am   senior  corporal   now  and    take    the  place of sergeant.     r .  t,  1  can   well  agree  with   you  this war is hell.   I  would like  to explain to you  just what it  is like, but we aro  not permitted  to  say too  much.   I have  seen hell and men  in it since I  came here.    I have  seen  a lot  of! France and have  been along  sixty miles  of  the  line  since I  first  woirt in.    We  are on the  move all  the  time.    We  have  left   the  company and-just   a  small   section  go along   doing  special  work.    We   have   been  along with imperial  troops all  the  time.    Well,  G.  P..  I just  want to toll you��������� we  have got  the finest lot of men the world  has ever seen.    The empire has  given her best.    They  are  just  a wall of nerve and the line can  never be  broken.   They are all  good, but you can take off your  hat  to  the  imperial Jock any  time.    Every trooper in France  will gamble on them.    There is  a warm place in the hearts of  all the troops for Jock.   There  is no mistake if both sidss would  close   down   their artillery wo  can  beat them  in one month,  Thoy   can't stand   our  attack  since we got men over here. Wc  are not only lighting Gormany,  but wo are fighting the greatest  spy system tho world _has ever  knoAvn.    I was coming out with  my relief some  time  ago and  was halted   by  a patrol oh tho  road.    They asked me  to help  them surround a  spy about 500  yards from the   trenches.    He  was hiding in the woods. I sent  my relief to rest and stayed till  morning.    We got him at daybreak.    The  spys  are   not   all  Germans.      Even   in    Eugland  they   are  working.     You   can  guess what we have to contend  with here.    You can believe me  once a German  always, a German always a  German.   They  aro rotten with all their grand  army.     I  have  been   over the  battle     ground     where     Von  Klock first met our little box.of  soldiers with his great army of  3,500,000   men,   when   we  only  had    the    English,   Irish   and  .Scotch  guards   and   there    we  beat him with our little army-  fighting .him  over 3 to 1; fighting him to a .finish till our little  army was almost gone.    If we  liad men to follow him ,up they  would not. have  needed   me. If  over .1 come back I will   be able  to tell you a lot that I couldn't  ^iniiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiM  'ifi'M  m  1$  ,-���������-,--*������  V-'i  "<%'!

C.  %JiH!iii9ElliiiHHii!;iilll!N  ii:iSi3IH!i!!!i!l!!inNfiiii!iin!ll{f#,  ������������������������  say in a letter.  I saw an air duel. There  wore five machines, 3 British  and 2 German. They fought  about 45 minutes, and at last  one of the Germans got on fii'o.  They were, 1 should judge.about  2,000 feet high when the Gorman airman came tumbling  down. I fancy Fritz would  rather be on foot.  While I was down  at the Canadian hospital 1 was very bu*������y  trying to find out   where  some  of our lads were   from  the  inmates   that   came   in.      T  was  right in the heart ol" the Canadian linos mid when   I  got going around a little I  didn't let  any grass grow  under my feet.  The   first,   I   found   was Sergt.  Billy     Tucker   -ol:   the   Nickel  Plate fame. I spent three hours  with    him   and  then   returned,  and the next-1 found was-Corpl  Charley   Armstrong.      He   belongs   to   the  mounted   patrol  police, and   is just  as   big  and  good looking as ever.    You can  believe   me  that   Tucker   and  Armstrong are two of the finest  .looking soldiers I  have seen in  France.    Tucker  is bigger, and  it's   a   standoff* which   is   the  larger, Charley or his  horse.    1  saw him mounted and he looks  fine.   I spent all day with Charley.   The next I found was Jack  Corrigan.    I  spent   two   hours  with   him.    The   next  I  found  were about eight miles away���������  Christiana   and   weary   Willie  Hope.    Billy- has 'still':got that  laugh left.    Well, we had a, fine  old chat.    We  liad   liad   one.of  Tommy's      dinners      together,  bread,  cheese and  tea.    I   got  track of Billy Liddicote, but he  is in the trenches.   Will see him  later.    Good find   to see alLthe  old boys again.    All at present.

TO   KNOW  ,, DODD'S   KIDNEY    PILLS  CURED   HIM  Cannot Advance  Dare Not Retreat  This is K'iplir.Cj's View of the Germans'  ,, Present   Position  The Revue de Paris publishes extracts from three letters sent by  Kr.'lyard Kipling to M. Andre Chevril-  loi). Mr. Kipling expresses his opinion  very cearly ou the military aspect ot  the war. lie has repeatedly shown, he  says, that tae Germans cannot withdraw from theirpresent line, of battle,  for if they did they would haye to explain why to their own people. They  cannot afford to retreat. Their force  has to be used up bit by bit and individually, either by their-advancing  and winning victories, or staying where  they aro. And when it is used up  there will not be very, much Gorman  problem left* to consider.  la all this, Mr. Kipling points out,  he is starting .from the hypothesis  that the war has meant: no less to  .the enemy, other than loss of men.  In the course of; one of; his letters  Mr. Kipling appeals- to France, who  has paid with the flesh of her flesh;  to England, with her half million of  sacrificed lives and more to-come,  and to Russia, with her innumerable  dead, to hold on. "The' rats are  there heforo us in a single ditch,"  he says, "and. as far as England and  the empire are concerned, we can  put enough men on the western  front to hold tho 'Bodies' as the  French are holding them; and when  v/e do, it will be the Germans who  will have to do the thinking."  Mr. Kipling views the financial  situation form a somewhat whimsical standpoint. Being 50 years of  age, he refuses to take an optimistic  view of things. Young men of 20 or  less perhaps may strive to prove that  every war is succeded by a wave of  immense prosperity, whose causes are  psychological as well as material, but  Mr. -Kipling prefers to accept the  popular theory that- universal ruin is  awaiting Britain. But- he" is not  downhearted in the midst of this gen-  era.l dobacle. lie is cheered hy the  thought that when the whole world is  ruined (materially) ever one will be  as rich as his neighbor.  In England, wnerc small subscribers  to the national loans are, he says, not  numerous, a certain proportion ot  debt will be wiped off the slate on the  simple pretext that men who were rich  enough to lend large sum-' to the state  are rich enough to lose- them. This is  immoral, he r.dmits; hut the British  shall only laugh, and the losers "will  laugh with the rest. And then���������no  doubt'the1 losers will be given titles to  compensate them for their monetary  loss. -This, ho thinks, would be an  admirable apotheosis.  ���������"������  Russian   Railway  Extended  to  Tabriz  The .Russian railway just extended  to Tabriz, Persia, probably will be  pushed into Baluchitan to link Petro-  gra<l with British Indian cities, according to a communication lo the  United States department of commerce from IT.

Millerand, Ont.���������(Special)-���������Strong  and hearty again after a long period  of "weakness and ill-health, Louis  Champagne, a well known resident of  this place, is spreading broadcast the  good news that he found new health  and strength in Dodd's Kidney, Pills.  ',- "For a long time," Mr. Champagne  states in an interview, "I suffered  from kidney disease and backache. My  appetite was uncertain, and I got up  in the morning with a bitter taste in  my mouth. There were flashes of  light before my eyes, and I had a  dragging sensation across the loins.  My limbs were heavy and I was always tired.  "Then I decided to try Dodd's Kidney Pills, and I am glad to be able  to say that two boxes made me well.  I recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills-"-to  all those who suffer from feebleness  or bad  kidneys."  ���������If you have the symptoms mentioned by Mr. Champagne you may be  sure your kidneys need attention: Neglected kidneys are the causa of more  than half the ills mankind is heir to.  The way to treat sick or weak kidneys is to use,Dodd's Kidney Pills.

Alberta Cheese to Become a Most Important  Industry  "The cheese industry of Alberta is  bound to become much more important," said C. P. Markel, provincial  dairy commissioner in an interview.  "The war has created a great demand  for cheese, and while this province has  cot yet got to-a point-where it can  produce-enough to supply,the local,demand, the War heed is bound to help.  "The cheese season is now opening  and there is every prospect of an excellent year because the high prices  which obtained last year will undoubtedly be maintained this season. Alberta has all the natural resources for  the making of cheese, the feed and  the cool nights, two "things essential,  and in time we are bound to have one  of the finest cheese sections of the Dominion.  "1 think that in time, the lower  foothills of the -province, used only at  the present time as ranges or for no  purpose, will produce cheese in great  quantities. They will equal three famous uplands of Denmark in time. The  ccol nights mean the better keeping  of milks and cream and cheeses, and  that is a great thing for the industry,  especially when combined with possibilities of cattle feed usch as exist on  the long slopes from the Rockies eastward."

Telephone for Every'  15 Persons in Canada  1,396    Companies    Have Earned Over  $4,000,000  According to the annual blue book  of the railway department giving telephone and express statistics, there is  now one telephone for every 15.1 persons in Canada, The increase in the  use of the telephone has been steady  during the past few months, and war  conditions do not seem to have interrupted the progress. The number of  telephones reported as being in use in  1915 was 533,090, an increase of 11,-  946 over 1914. The principal growth  was in rural districts. Tho net earnings of the 1,396 companies In Canada totalled $4,764,957, which was  $350,091 better than the result of 1914.  The total capitalization of Canadian  telephone companies now amounts to  $74,285,000.  Express,, earnings for 1915 show  some shrinkage, owing to war conditions. Gross earnings for 1915  [amounted to $11,311,797, as compared  '���������with $12,646,451 for 1914. Net earn-  jings totalled only $68,668, as compared with $383,455 in 1914. The small-  Iness of thd net earnings, however, is  [perhaps not so significant as might be  j supposed, when it Is considered that  [the express companies paid last year  | to railways and other carrying agen-  Jcies for express privileges, a total  [amount of $5,610,224^. This latter  [amount went in reality to the transforation companies which own the  [stock of the express"companies.    ���������  The Sixth Overseas  Universities Company  h The Demands of the Time  [The Farmer is Providing a Good-sized  Portion of the Ammunition     ���������   -  The man who produces one pound  ��������� of anything of value; the man who  improves the breed of his own cat-  [tle, the man who makes' two blades  iof grass grow where 'one grew before, is adding to the wealth of-the  nation, to the richness of the country. Not alone is that "the case, but  he is contributing his bit to Christianity and to the welfare of the  world. It is given- to the farmer  and breeder tp serve .Iris native  land more by " his individual effort  than is within the power of the  ' ordinary follower' of any other occupation. The farmer by his own  unaided" efforts, except by the gifts  of nature, can maintain his wife  and family. No other worker in  the world's vineyard can - say so  jnuch unless he is willing to go naked and that he and his should often  times suffer the pangs of hunger.  "And the claims upon the farmer and  his fellow, the breeder, in present  circumstances are not only urgent  "but  many.  There are people who object to the  .assertion that the agriculturist is  making the earth yield its utmost  in tending his Hocks and herds with  '-care, dilligence and intelligence, is  doing his bit, the same as the man  'in the trenches. He is not directly  placing his own life in jeopardy perhaps, but he is helping to sustain  those who are.  He is providing a good sized por-  tio- <,f the ammunition. The fault is  not in the assertion itself, but in the  use that is made of it by the man  who has no spirit for the right and  who, the probabilities are, is doing  his full bit neither in agriculture nor  m any other form of industry.  There are possibly men on the land  ���������who would'be more use on the field  of battle, but one thing is certain if  the men who are of value to the  soil and to the farmyard are taken  away some means must be found to  replace them.  Canada's future lies In the womb  of her agriculture. To make tho  best use of the - opportunities that  are and will be, to take our rightful place in the world's economics,  we must toil, without ceasing, we  must produce and improve, we must  bend all our energies to results, we  -must utilize waste and, amidst it  all, we must focus our eyes upon  [ the future and pay our respects to  ! conservation. Our position is uni-  ; .que in nearness to, and in our facilities for reaching, the best markets. Transportation just now may  be difficult and expensive, but it will  not always be so, and when the time  comes for greater freedom of trade  ���������we must be prepared for it. This  can be done not alone by industry,  but also by economizing; not by  hoarding, but by the judicious use  of our resources. A truth ever to be  born in mind is that what is wasted by fools is turned into profit  "by the wise. Even In the midst of  Its campaign of destruction and ferocity, Germany, so word is flashed  across the sea, Is devoting attention  to education and internal Improvement and development.  Families   Never  Saw the  Sun  In     Galicia,     where   tlie   Russians  won great victories, there  is  one of  the     most   remarkable   underground  .cities in  the  world.    It  has  a population of over 1,000 men, women anil  -children,  most  of  whom  have  never  seen  the  light of day.  It is known as the City of the Salt  Mines, and is situated several hundred feet below the earth's iurface.  Its being is due to the greatest salt  mines in the world, which though it  has been mined for many generations,  seems inexhaustible. The city has its  town hall, church, theatre and assembly room, all made from the crystallized rock salt. It has long, wide  streets and big squares, lighted by  ��������� electricity.  There  are  numerous    instances  of  families     in   this   underground     city  where   not  a   single     individual    in  three   or   four  generations  has   seen  ���������the sun. .������  ^Reinforcements" for the Princess-Pat-  .. -  ricia's Canadian  Light Infantry  *  Canadians, of whatever, nationality,  thrill as they recall the wonderful  record made by tho Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry at Fes-  tubert, at Ypres, and many other bat  tleflelds in Belgium;; how, in the face  of overwhelming odds, they held their  positions by their courage, steadiness  and dogged perseverance.  For nearly a year the P.P.C.L.I., (as  the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light  Infantry is known in military circles)  has been reinforced by a steady flow  of recruits of the very finest of our  Canadian manhood. These recruits,  many now veterans, are determined  that this fine battalion shall not lose  its high record, but with their help  shall have added honor and prestige  in the future.  The reinforcements have been  drawn from all over Canada, and the  Universities of Canada have made  this battalion their care. Already 1,-  350 officers and men have gone forward under the title of the Universities Companies and are doing their  '���������bit" at the front or at Shorncliffe.  Five Universities Companies have  left Canada.  The number of men volunteering  from the west has been simply wonderful. So much so that the authorities of the Western Canadian Universities decided to send overseas a battalion composed of students of the  Western Universities and members, of  the teaching ��������� staff. This battalion is  now recruiting and is called the 196th  Western Universities Battalion,  C.E.F.  - The object of the Western Universities Battalion and of the Universities  Companies is the same In that it provides a means for men to get to the  front in congenial company, but  though their paths are parallel, they  are not identical in this respect. The  Western Universities Battalion is for  Overseas Service aa a battalion, and  the Universities Companies are reinforcing the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry.  The P.P.C.L.I. is now composed  mainly of men from the Universities  Companies and the steady flow of reinforcements for this battalion must  not be allowed to stop and further  the standard of the recruits must always be the "best that Canada can  offer."  There are many men of the University type whose hearts grow warm  as they read -nd hear the name of the  Princess Pat's, for they have brothers, relatives and friends In it, and  they -wish they could have an opportunity of joining it. To these men the  news that a sixth company is being  recruited under Major McKergow, at  McGill University in Montreal, will be  -welcome.  The Sixth Company is In. comfortable quarters at McGill Uinversity  and has all the advantages of the use  of the McGill Campus and the University Building, including the McGill Students' Union.  The Universities Companies have  been almost overwhelmed with the  hospitalty of the residents of Montreal and its suburbs.  The training of the Companies has  been of an exceptionally efficient character, and has been of a nature to develop specialists, some at musketry,  others at signalling, others at tactical  exercises, an'd again others in physical training, bayonet fighting and  bombing.  The great advantage of these companies is that men of the same social  status go forward together, and  Join a battalion in which they will  find a large number of congenial spirits. Another advantage is the rapidity with which they go forward to the  front. The training in Montreal usually takes about three months, and  after two months further training In  England^, they take their place in the  firing line without unnecessary delay,  The reason for this is the fact that  these companies reinforce a battalion  already at the front.  A considerable number of the men  who have joined the Universities Companies have, upon reaching England,  obtained commissions in the British  and Canadian units It is, of course,  impossible to make any guarantee as  to promotion of this character, but  the nature of the training received  and the reputation of the Universities  Companies "make the chances of promotion excellent for the type of men  that the Universities Companies accept.  Intending recruits are examined locally by an army medical officer, receive their transportation to Montreal, and immediately obtain their uniform, and start their training without delay. Readers are Invited to  make known to their friends this opportunity. The officer commanding,  6th Overesas Universities Company,  McGill University, Montreal, will be  glad to supply any further information  that may be required.  Keeping Accounts  System of Keeping Records Will Show  up  in  Farm  Affairs  Bookkeeping has not as yet played  an important - part in the work of  the farmer. On small farms where  the income and the outgo amount to  only a few .hundred dollars a year  there is not such a pressing need of  spending much time on account.  On larger farms, or In the case of  high-priced land, however, where the  investment runs Into thousands of  dollars, there will be financial gain  in utilizing some sort of senBible  bookkeeping system.  The mere keeping of accounts,  however, unless it leads to improved  practice, amounts to nothing In  farming or in dairy operations. If  the record of one department of the  farm shows up favorably when the  profits aro (summed up, more emphasis can b'e placed on that phase  of the work, so as to make a still  better showing. In no department  do records shed more light than when  applied to dairy cows. There are  loafers or boarders in every herd,  and those who are most up-to-date  are willing to go to the trouble of  keeping accounts of each individual  cow so that the robbers may be sifted out and sent to the shambles. On  general principles there is an educational value in the keeping of accounts. While, Iri a measure one's  bank balance Is a fairly good guide  as' to how things, are coming along  financially, still the perfection' of a  system of records adds immensely  to the interest we have in certain  operations, and invariably the painstaking talent that is developed by a  system of keeping records will show  up in farm affairs themselves and from  that standpoint alone there will be  gain that is worth while.  Shade Trees  When Co-operation Fails  Good   Feelings  Should   Not  Take  the  Place of Business Methods  A group of farmers ordered a carload of mill feed on a co-operative  basis. One of them volunteered to  look after the business end of it and  to let the others know when the feed  arrived. It came in1" due time, and so  did all the farmers except one. That  one is a man whom everybody likes  and trusts, a man whose word is as  good as his bond.  He had^ome good excuse for not being there,'so the man who was'Iooking  after the order secured.a place to put  his part of the .feed and sent him word  where to get it. Some time afterward  he sent for the feed. Still later���������some  months later���������he met the man who  had ordered the feed for him, and paid  him���������the exact cost of the feed.  He did not say a word about paying  for the trouble of finding a storage  place and putting the feed in it, or  about paying interest on the money  the business manager had advanced  for him. He doubtless appreciated the  kindness of the business manager, and  would certainly have done as much for  him; but "he failed to consider that  this friend was out considerable  trouble, some labor, and the interest  on something like a hundred dollars  for two  or three months.  The man who acted as business  manager in this deal has about concluded that it pays him better to go  it alone than to try to co-operate with  his neighbors in buying. He says  farmers are too neighborly, that they  want good feelings to take the place  of business methods.  His disillusionment Is not to be wondered at. The spirit of neighborliness  and good will must be the basis of all  successful co-operative enterprise, but  this neighborliness must be put on a  business basis. One need not love his  neighbor less for keeping accurate accounts with him.���������The Country Gentleman.  A lazy man Is a dead one who can't  be burled.  Value of  Property  Greatly  Increased  by Planting of Trees  It Is an extravagant idea, characteristic of the times, that in order  to have beautiful shade trees along  our roads and around our homes  it is necessary to purchase them at  fancy prices from commercial nurserymen. This is far from the truth.  It is possible to plant merely the  tree seeds in prepared spots about a  foot square. Of course it will take  some time for these seeds to develop  into large-sized trees, but remember  that we are planting for the next  generation. During the ten years  that we would think about purchasing these trees without doing so, our  seeds will have developed into attractive-looking young trees. Or better still, go to the woods some of  these days before the busy season  comes on, carefully look over the  young seedlings and pick out the required number of promising trees so  that when transplanting time comes  there will be no time lost in searching around for suitable trees. In  transplanting ' from the forest the  temptation is always to choose trees  of too large a size. The smaller a  tree the easier it may be transplanted and the quicker it recovers from  this shock. The safest way is to  select small trees not over four feet  tall. As much soil as possible should  be taken up with the tree and held  intact so as not to break the very  small and fine roots. As it Is almost impossible to transplant a  large tree without breaking some of  the roots, it is generally advisable to  clip the tips of the branches of the  crown and to cut the lower branches  off close to the main stem. This restores equilibrium between the reduced root system and the crown.  As the tree develops it Is necessary  to continue to remove the lower  branches until the lowest are sufficiently high from the ground. In  this way a long trunk and high  branching crown are secured. It  should be remembered that a branch  six feet from the ground always remains six feet from the ground, for a  tree grows in height from the tip  only and does not stretch out its entire length as doe3 a growing boy.  Where a large amount of shade  tree planting is to be done it is often  advisable to purchase them from  wholesale forest tree nurserymen,  who will furnish most of the desirable species for no more than fifty  cents to $5 per 100 for small sizes.  This would be less than the value  of the labor required to move 'them  from the woods.  When and how you get the trees  is of minor importance so long as  you get and plant them. Tho time  necessary to plant a few each year  will never be missed and within a  few years the value of your farm  will "be increased out of all proportion to the labor spent in planting  the treeB.  Must Work to Beat Subs   ] Big Irrigation Convention  A Greater Output on the Clyde Is Urgently Needed  Arthur Henderson, president of the  board of education, who is also chairman of the national advisory committee on war output, addressing a conference of the Clyde shipwright workers, uttered a grave warning concerning the necessity of doing better than  they have yet done if the British mercantile fleet is to be maintained at the  proper strength to support the extraordinary demands to support it.  "During the early days of the war,"  he said, "in order to assist the navy,  labor was transferred from merchant  shipping until 1t was practically  brought to a standstill. But I want  to Impress upon you that we can no  longer afford to neglect the construction of merchant- ships. We have to  remember that the enemy Is boasting  of the success of his submarine policy, and there are other factors contributing to the pressing demand for  an increase of shipping tonnage. The  president of the board of trade has  told me how needful It is that everything possible be done to secure the  rapid delivery of shipping now under  construction. To assure this two  things   are   absolutely   necessary.  "The employment of skilled men  must be strictly limited to that class  of work for whicn their special skill  is essential and which cannot be performed by men of lesser skill or by  women, and all, workers must be maae  to feel that their full time in wholehearted service is indispensable in  winning the war."  Mr. Henderson referred to the  grave concern caused to the admiralty by the failure of men to work full  time. In one Clyde area alone, out  of a total of 152,000 hours, no less  than 15,700 hours were thus lost He  concluded r with an appeal to the or-  gaized workmen to realize the nation's need and do their best  England Has Beer Without Headache  The liquor control board has discovered a new non-alcoholic beer, the  sale of which will be pushed as far  as possible in the English public-  houses.  "It seems like beer, it looks like  beer; It tastes like beer���������the only  difference is in the headache," says  the statement Issued by the board.  In a test case, a workman drank  twenty pint bottles without becoming  intoxicated. The new drink will  be placed at the disposal of pailla-  ment, in the house of commons.  "Plase, ma'am," said a little girl to  the woman who lived next door,  "mother wants to know if you will  lend her your gramophone this afternoon."  "What an extraordinary request! Is  she going to give a dance?"  "No, ma'am. We're tired of dancing to it She wants to keep it quiet  for a couple of hours so that baby can  sleep!"  Fooled the Spies  German  Spies Paid a Good  Price for  Worthless Information  When France was first manufacturing her wonderful 75 cm. cannon  German spies conveyed the information that such a gun was on the way,  and desperate efforts were made to  obtain the plans regarding it.  Realizing the eagerness of Germany in this connection, those responsible for the turning out of the  Invention thought it well to put them  off the scent, and so the German  military attache in Paris had information secretly conveyed to him that  a foreman in the French arsenal  was heavily in debt, and might be  found "useful" for a consideration.  An agent was immediately sent to  the workman, offering a huge sum  for any details that might be furnished. The forema.n who was acting the traitor to order, played his  part in the most skilful 'manner, and  eventually handed over several  drawings and plans of detached  parts, all of which beonged to a  gun of earlier pattern, which had not  been a success. Further leakages of  information was given to several  foreign offices to inspect this gun of  earlier pattern.  As a result, Germany felt she had  nothing to learn from France in the  line of artillery, and when war  broke out, got the surprise of her  life when she found that her rival  possessed a weapon that has been  described as "an incomparable instrument, an element of victory."  Forest Destruction in Canada  Every   Foot   of   Land   Being   Utilized  Germany has  laid  down  utilization  of the.land, every foot of land, as one  of  her   first  principles.

Cowan of Westmount, and Lieut.  Ellsworth, of Marysville, Ont., both  members of the Canadian Army Veterinary Corps, who returned to Canada recently.  "It is really marvellous," said Lieut.  Cowan, "how little contagious disease  one finds among the horses on the  western front. The Canadian horses  seem to be very hardy. Why, they will  sleep out in the mud week after  week, and be perfectly healthy all the  time. I had charge of 1,500 horses for  ten months on the western front, and  in that time I had only three cases of  pneumonia.  "I've got you stopped," put in  Lieut. Ellsworth. "I had charge of  1,500 horses for ten months on the  western front, and had only one case  of pneumonia."  Client���������You have an item in your  bill, "Advice, March 8, $5.".

Nine Germans an Hour  The story of a British sniper who  hid himself in a well and picked off  scores of Germans Is related by a  correspondent horns from the front.  The sniper was a corporal, sent out  to annoy the enemy. He selected  a well, into which he crept, making  a little barrier of earth in front of  him. Here he installed himself for  16 days, doing deadly work. One  morning he brought down no fewer  than nine Germans in an hour.  By the fifteenth night he had  grown haggard and "nervy." He  dozed a little longer than usual and  awoke shivering at dawn. To his  dismay he found his whereabouts in  the well had been discovered. A  fair-haired German giant arose in  the grass 40 yards away. Recovering  himself, the corporal promptly shot  him dead. A few hours later he was  relieved.  The Canadian Soldier: "That's about the worst wreck of a forest I ever  saw."  The Canadian Woodsman: "It Is, eh? Then you ought to see what's left  after a forest fire. I'll take you to a hundred townships right here in  Canada that will make such a picture look tame. We think it is a  pity for European forests to be smashed and yet we smash our own  by nearly 10,000 timber fires per annum."  The Soldier:    "H'm!     That's a  new way of looking at It."  The battle of Verdun has brought  out the great possibilities of the  French  machine-gun companies.  During the operations from February 21-25 the French machine gunners made hecatombs of the enemy.  Since then their activity continues.  One machine gun fired, between  February 26 and March 4, 75,000 cartridges.  One Incident among thousands may  be mentioned in order to give an  Idea of the men's bravery. During  the fiercest period of the German  attack a Zouave machine gunner succeeded in saving his gun, which had  been buried in the debris caused by  the explosion of a shell, and he was  carrying it with the assistance of a  comrade, when he saw the enemy  advancing quite close to him.  The two men, without losing their  presence of mind, established themselves In a shell hole. One of the  two Zouaves hoisted the machine-  gun on his shoulder and kept it at  the proper height, so that the other  could aim properly. The two men  then fired all their ammunition, and  after having stopped the advancing  Germans with enormous losses, they  successfully fell back with their gun."  He hurried after the old gentleman,  while a couple of negro porters jumped down off the train in great excitement. After a protracted search one  of the porters handed up a wicker basket containing a large leg of mutton.  "Thank you," said the old gentleman.  "What do you mean, sir," roared the  conductor, "holding up the Oriental  Limited!    You said���������"  "I said a man's leg was under the  wheel, and so it was. I paid for this  leg and if it isn't mine I'd like to  know whose It is.   I���������"  "Toot!     Toot!     All abroad."

A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  10 CENTS PER PLUG  t m  it  as a famiiy    medicine?  may  advise  what  to  use  in its pkice.���������II. Arnott, M.B , ,M.C P.S.  the use of  Sometime  1  erman  *ruta  ty  The Family Bottle  Alcohol   is  Rapidly  Losing  Favor as a  Household   Remedy  As prohibition approaches, a good  many who still believe in the virtues  of alcohol as a family medicine may be  disturbed as to how they can have the  bottle replenished. To all such I address this letter, asking them lo examine the matter fairly and candidly.  Alcohol as medicine is rapidly being  given up in sll the large hospitals.  This is shown by the collated reports  of seven of the largest hospitals in  England. Iu 1SG2 $3,743.00 was spent  lor alcohol and only $14,675.00 for  milk, in 1P02 only $13,186.00 was  spent for alcohol and $43,818.00 for  milk, with about the same number of  patients. Sir Victor Horsely tells us  that some of tlie present day rapid-'recoveries are due to the fact that after  operations, the patients are no longer dosed with alcohol. Many, of the  most successful physicians of the day  never prescribe it even in the smallest quantities. That being so, would  it not be wise to leave it out,of the  family medicine chest."  . It is now beyond dispute that alcohol even in moderate quantities, lessens efficiency, lessens power of endurance, weakens the memory and eyesight. It does not require, any"great  intelligence to understand that Avhat  does all this must lessen the power  of a patient to light disease. If a single glass of beer lessens, a man's endurance by seven per cent, and his  power to remember things by fifteen-  per cent., it follows that it also weakens his power of recovery from disease. Dr. Welsh, of John Hopkins  University, said, "Alcohol in any form  or in any quantity lessens a patient's  chance of recovery." If that.be true  of an adult, how much truer it is of  tlie delicate tissues of a child. Some  years ago the German government issued a poster, warning parents to give  their children "not one drop of beer,  not one drop of wine, not one drop of  whiskey or any other form of alcohol."   "  Not only does aicohol lessen a patient's chance of recovery from illness,  but it greatly increases' his tendency  to contract disease. No one will accuse military men of being temperance  cranks, and yet the Handbook of the  Royal Army Aledical Corps takes  great pains to put that fact beyond  question. On page 20 of that book experiments are described that would  convince any man that even one glass  will render a man more liable to any  contagious or infectious disease  Not long ago the Academy of .Medicine of Toronto, unanimously declar-  .'fd.against the use of alcohol in any  form as a medicine. Finally let us remember that in (lie U.S. whiskey and  brandy have been left off the American Pharmacopeia, which is the official list of medicines recommended  for the use of physicians. If that be  soj are you not quite safe in dropping  Enemy Submarine Methods;  Sea  Tale   is  Like  That  of  Old   Pirate  Days  A stirring story of tlie experiences  of tho crew' of a British steamer whih  was sunlc by a submarine is told by  Captain Arnold C- B. (Jroom, iato of  the  steamship  Coquet.  -  "About 10.45 a.m., January -1, lfMG,"  said Captain Groom, "1 was writing  in Ihe saloon when J heard a gun  fired. On reaching the bridge the  third mate told mo it was tired across  our bow. Then another was iired  across the bow, one over the bridge  and one under the stern from a submarine on the port quarter. At the  same time one or two people told me  there was another submarine on the  port bow. 1 stopped the engines and  indicated that 1 had done so hy Hag  signals. The firing stopped and tlie i \*  submarine was soon close to us with  signals flying 'abandon ship.' Immediately I took the chronometer, sextant  and chart in the starboard boat, and  we left the ship. The boat left a little  before us.  'We had no sooner got clear of  the ship than the submarine started  firing at her. Eight shots were fired.  One of them broke the signal halyard".!  on the bridge. They stopped firing  then, and;-: coming close to the boats,  ordered us alongside. This was a  dangerous proceeding, as the submarine's deck was just awash, and there  was a big swell. I was ordered aboard  the submarine, and then some Aus-  trians, armed with revolvers and cutlasses, were sent in our boats, and  the two boats returned to the Coquet.  "All hands were given 20 minutes  to get what they wanted from tho  ship. At the same time the Auslrian.s  looted   whatever  they     could   in    the  They lowered   one of the | 0u!, Crete  time given  small boats to take them and their  loot back to the submarine. When  they had all they wanted, they ordered the two lifeboats to return to  the submarine, then set two timo  fuse bombs under water abreast of  numbers one and two holds and left  tho ship themselves. Shortly afterward there were two explosions and  the ship settled down by the head.  Four or five minutes after the explosions the Coquet lifted her stern high  in the air. Something hit the wliistle  lanyard and with a pitiful scream,  the Coquet disappeared.  "The boats were alongside by this  time, an I the Austrians* searched  them for anything valuable, taking  sextants and charts, and also every  scrap or paper they could find. They  would not let me keep even the account of tlie wages of the crew or  any of my bills, although 1 asked  them specially for these latter, and  pointed out to them what they were,  and that they were of no earthly use  to them. They ordered me back into  ray boat and then left us."  Captain Groom then described the  attempt of the two boats to get into  the track of steamers between Port  Said,  Alexandria and   Malta.  "With a" heavy sea runninj  said, "we were very soon all  through, and remained so for  uext six days. By the night of  7th everybody was chilled .to  bone. Early on the morning of  Sth the weather moderated somewhat, and I decided to set sail and  make for.the African coast."  On tlie lOtli Captain Groom landed  at~ a small bay with houses in the  background.' These afterward were  found to be uninhabited cave dwellings. The boat's crew slept that night  on the sands, and on the morning of  the llth met ah Arab, who returned  with them to the camp where there  was a Greek fireman who spoke  Arabic.

H. Stevens, member for Vancouver.  Mr. Stevens quoted. American newspapers as circulating a report, said to  have been sent out hy the American  consul at Vancouver, declaring that  many Americans had gone back to the  United States because of the effort  made in Canada to force them to enlist. So far" as British Columbia was  concerned, declared Air. Stevens, this  report was deliberately and maliciously false.  Hon. Dr. Roche, minister of������ the interior, said that the Canadian immigration agents in the United States  had called his attention to similar  reports credited to the American  consul at Vancouver, and the latter  had been taken to task about it. The  matter was being reported to Washington. Dr. Roche added that very-  strong opposition war, being encountered iu the United States to all efforts to promote American immigration into Canada, and that false statements sucli as the ones referred to by  Air. Stevens were being largely exploit-  e !.  The statement is made that thousands weai- eyeglasses who do not  really need them. 1������ you are one of  these unfortunates, . then these glasses  may be ruining your eyes instead of  helping' them. Thousands who wear these  "windows" may prove for themselves that  they can dispense with glasses if they  will get the following prescription filled  at once: Go to any active drug store  and get a bottle of Bon-Opto tablets. Dissolve one Bon-Opto tablet in 'A glass of  water. With this harmless liquid .solution bathe the eyes two to four times  daily, and you are likely to be astonished  at the results right from the start. Many  who have been told that they have astigmatism, eye-strain, cataract, sore eyelids,  weak- eyes, conjunctivitis- and other eye  disorders report wonderful benefits from  the use of this'prescription. Get this prescription filled and use it: you may so  strengthen your eyes that glasses will not  be necessary. Thousands who are blind,  or nearly so, or.who wear glasses might  never have required them if they ha<?  cared for their eyes in lime. Save your  eyes before it is too lute! Do not become  one of these victims of neglect. Eyeglasses are only like crutches and every  few years they must be changed to fit the  ever-increasing weakened condition, so  better see if you can, like many others,  get clear, healthy, strong magnetic eyes  through the prescription here given. The  Valmas Drug Co., of Toronto, will fill the  above prescription by mail, if your driig-  gist cannot.  r**A prominent City Physician to whom tlie above articlo  Wft������ gubniUtcd. said: "Bon-Opto is a very remai-babla  remedy. Its constituent inaredients nre well known (o  eminent eye specialists and widely prescribed by them.  It can he obtained from any good druggist and is one of  tha very few, preparations, I /eel should be kept on  hand for regular use In almost every family."  This is a recent discovery of Doctor  Tierce, who' is head of the Invalids'  I lotel and Surgical Institute at Buffalo,  N. Y. Experiments at Doctor Pierce's  Hospital for several years proved that  there is no other eliminator of uric acid  that can he compared to it. For those  easily .recognized symptoms of inflammation���������as backache, scalding urine  and frequent urination, as well as sediment in the urine, or if uric acid in the  blood has caused rheumatism, it is  simply wonderful how surely "Anuric"  acts. The best of results are always  obtained in cases of acute rheumatism  in the joints, in gravel and gout, and  invariably the pains and stiffness which  so frequently and persistently^accom-  pany the disease rapidly disappear.  Go to your nearest drug store and  simply ask for a 50-cent package of  "Anuric," manufactured by Dr. Pierce,  or seud 10 cents to Dr. Pierce for a  large trial package. If you suspect  kidney or bladder trouble, send him a  sample of your water and describe  symptoms. Doctor Pierce's chemist  will examine it, then Dr. Pierce will  report to you, without fee or charge.  Note:���������French scientists affirm that  '���������'Anuric" is thirty-seven times more  active than lithia in eliminating uric  acid, and is a harmless but reliable  chemical compound that may be safely  given to children, but should be used  only by grown-ups who actually wish to  restore their kidneys to perfect health,  by conscientiously "using one box���������or  more in extreme cases ��������� as "Anuric"  (thanks to Doctor Pierce'3 achievement)  is by far the most perfect kidney and  bladder corrector obtainable.

Germany's Strong Man  Falkenhayn   the   Most   Powerful   Man  '-������������������'. in the Country'  A new and more masterful spirit  pervaded.,,C!erman strategy from the  moment of Falkenhayn's assumption of  the controi', of, military policy. There  was -rio-longer any sense of conflict between political and military aims, still  less of any evidence of the collision of  wills. The disastrous experience ot  the first four month's of the war had  aged the kaiser and modified his imperious self-will. He was in the frame  of mind to forget that he was the supreme war lord and to distrust his own  judgment, and Falkenhayn had the  force and the adroitness to avail himself of this fact. He established over  his master an intellectual .authority  which left him the practical dictator of  military policy. This ascendancy has  been cohfirmel by the success which  attended his Car-reaching and powerful  strategy throughout-1015, and . in presenting him wtili the Order of the  Black Eagle the Kaiser used terms of  flattery which almost touched the level  of obsequious reverence. General Falkenhayn has fortified his position by an  artful policy of excluding possible rivals from access to his master*. In an  unusually informing analysis of the  forces around the Kaiser at the" present time, published in Le Temps, Mr.  Hendrik Hudson, who, as a neutral,  has spent a long time in Germany, declares that Falkenhayn is the most  powerful man in the country���������A.

A busk business-like captain took  ns tlnough the buildings where the  "iron rations" arc stored. These are  packed in small wooden boxes, each  containing a day's rations for twenty  men. A tin of corned beef, bouillon  cubes, biscuits, ten, coffee, sugar,  salt, pepper and mustard comprise  one man's "iron rations" for a day.  The items are wrapped in separate  packages.  The supply trains come in and go  out like clockwork. The loading platforms are on one side of the building, and tiro receiving platforms on  the other side. When goods are being shipped to the rail-head near the  lines the doors on the receiving side  it re locked, thereby avoiding the possibility of confusion.  One of the most interesting departments of this military establishment  is where the gas helmets arc renovated. .Every day many thousands  of these grotesque accessories are  sent back from the front to be repaired and redipp'ed.  First, they arc washed in a hot,  antiseptic solution. They come from  tin's treatment perfectly clean and  lioo. from germs. Then they are  passed on to the'long rows of girls,  who carefully mend ail parts and  reinforce tiro stitching around the  valves.  Then comes the process whereby  the helmets are rendered effective  against the German gases. It consist of dipping tho masks in a chemical solution which when dry, completely neutralizes the deadly fumes.  The wearer breathes through a little  rubber tube fitted with a valve which  works automatically.  There are the carpenter shops, the  gun shop, where the drtmaged rifles  are repaired; tho forge shop, the rubber shoe and grim boot departments,  and a dozen other branches where  ���������apparent waste is turned into new  li\e material and where the chinks  ure\plugged  to  prevent leaks in'the  mam into which millions of pounds  of JJutish gold arc pouicd eveiy day.

There is no other adequate outlet for  the return to civil life of the 350,000  or 400,000 men who will be released  from military service some time during  1917 and 1918. Figures compiled by  the militia department show that of  263,111 men enlisted up to February  29 no less than 170.3G9 were manual  workers and 17,044 farmers and ranch-  el s. The great bulk of the manual  workers were engaged befoie the war  in railway construction, in the building trades, in factories, and in national  and civic public improvements. Few  of them will be able to return to their  former occupations. Railway construction on a large scale will not be resumed for several years. The Dominion lias too great rather than too  small railway mileage for its population. City building has been overdone alike in the east and the west,  and there will be a \marked cessation  of this form of activity. Under normal conditions the tactories might be  able to absorb a considerable proportion of the men mustered out, but it  must not be forgotten that the munition plants and tho factories making  military equipment will close down at  the end of the war, and the 275,000  workpeople now engaged in producing  war material will have to compete with  the returned soldiers for places in Canadian factories. Under these conditions there can be little hope that  openings will be found in industrial  life for very many of the returning  soldiers.  The farm remains as the one great  Canadian industry that is underman-  ne I and that produces things the world  must have. Tho shortage of food and  draught animals in Europe will be very  great for years after hostilities end.  Men whose business it is to take the  long view and estimate probabilities  over a series of yeais state unhesitatingly that Canadian stock-raisers need  not fear a glut in the market for a considerable period. The productibn of  grain in the Canadian west is another branch of agricultural industry  that is ou a very firm basis, for the  world, will need more and more hard  northern wheat to bring up the quality  of tho flour milled in large part' from  softer grain grown in warmer climates.  There is ample opportunity on the  existing farms of the Dominion to provide profitable work for all who have  been withdrawn from manual occupations throughout Canada during the  past twenty months. One of tlie greatest handicaps in the way of a return  to the land in the case of married  men is the absence of cottages for  farm laborers. No investment that  could be made by the well-to-do farmers of Ontario Would pay a greater return year in and year out than the  spending of money to anchor married  form workers to the soil. It is'frequently asserted that the average hundred-  acre farm will, not keep two families.  That may be true where grain is raised  to be sold and where few animals are  kept. The average hundred-acre farm !  devoted to up-to-date animal husbandry will not only keep two families but  return a good profit to the farmer in  his capacity as landowner and capitalist. Why,- should not Ontario contribute to the economic reconstruction  that must follow the war. by tackling  the problem of the hired man? .A  quarter of a million additional workers,  married and single, on the farm of the  Dominion would add enormously to  stability and to the national wealth.���������  Toronto Globe.

The area from which the raw  material of binder twine is obtained  is a small part of the small province  Yucatan, where sisal iiemp is indigenous, and where it crows in profusion.on large estates. How the  northern farmer is going to get binder twine out of Yucatan at a fair  price under present conditions is a  hard problem, and if war should occur, the difficulty would not be. much  simplified, as long as the struggle was  on.--Free Press.

Keep away from chimneys and  open screened windows.  Out of doors the most dangerous  places, are under isolated trees and  near wire fences in open  fields.

There was a bit of lace cm lain o\or  the window, and a crocheted inly on  a table in Ihe "front room" nuclei  the family Bible. Theie was a pathos irr these simple decoiations that  made the eyes smait, for tliey spoke  plainly of hope and discouragement,  of an innate lo-\e of those tuflcs  which change an oidmuiy loom into  a home.  But there was one adornment in  tfiat room, sufficient in itself to make  one roiget the missing things; it  might not have been so conspicuous  in other smroimdmgs, but in that particular place it stood out above e**.eiy-  thmg else rt was just a good, but inexpensive, copy of one of the famous  pamtmgs, a picture of a bit of lonely  countiy.  It was impossible not to wonder  how the picture came theie. Who selected it? What pioinpted its selection? These weie the questions the  woman who piesided o\er that home  saw m the eyes of her visitor. Wc  were sitting together iieai a glowing  fire, a good light on the picture, the  woman sewing a child's gingham ap-  10)1  "Of come you have noticed qui one  good picture and peihap have wondered how we came by it," she said by  way of introduction.

That is fhe.story of the influence of  a good picture in one home. Anothci  I heard at a tarmeis' institute in  Cedar County, Iowa, where a woman  was telling her audience something  about the value of pictuies in the  home. She said: "I have a friend,  the mother of four sons. 'Ihis mother  was bitten ly disappointed because  everv bov as he giew to manhood decided to 'be a sailor. 'I can't imagine  why,' complained the mother 'A'one  of our relatives is a sailoi, the boys  have never seen the sea, know nothing about a sailoi's lite���������in fact.������l  don't think they ha\e seen anything  larger than a row boat oi a canoe 1  don't understand how- they got the  wislt fir  a sailor's life.'  " 'Don't you?

"���������!������. you didn't want your  boys to be sailors you-should not'have  put that scene before them all their  lives.' ".  1'ictures which show suffering,  cruelty or grief ace not good object  lessons for children and so are out of  place in the home, while pictures of  line animals, beautiful hits of Janet-  scape and domestic scenes serve as silent lessons.  Appreciation of good pictures is not  an intuitive sense. We need education  in art, as well as in music and literature, and the best place to b?gin that  education is in the school and the  home, where good pictures should.be  an  essential  part  of  the furnishings.

They do  not say so, of course>. but beneath, tlie  surface   they   are with   Germany.  I feel sure ��������� you know of the difficulties ahead of you, but that you are  preparclcl to let nothing stand in your  way in your -desire to free British  trade, so that at the end of this war  it will be in a position to meet the  conditions that will then exist. And  here w*e may consider for a moment  what they will be. I said the other  day "the'trade policy of Britain after  the war ought to be declared without  delay. I gave some reasons for this  opinion. Bet me now deal more  closely with this matter?  What is the present effect of war  on the economic life of our country?  I may be pardoned for setting it out  as I see it. Some niillins of men  have been withdrawn altogether from  production. To these, must be added  very largo .numbers; who'are engaged  in producing munitions, clothing, ale...  for those irr our army and navy. All  these millions are engaged, along with  the millions of the allies and of the  enemy, in destroying wealth and life.  Production is reduced lo a bare minimum and is daily a diminishing quantity. Every day the work of destruction goes oh. Ships, bridges, railways  are vitally essential factors in the  modern industrial world. At the end  of this war the world will be very  poor. Jt will have wasted its substance. It will have lo set to work  with all its might to produce more  wealth. And millions of its most effective producers will be. dead. It  will have to build more ships, bridges,  factories, manufacture machinery and  produce wealth generally.  All this requires much preparation.  It involves many very complex and  difficult questions. Of course it Brit-  tain is simply going to get what it  wants from Germany, as it did before the war, the. matter is very simple. But if not. then the producers of  Britain and    the empire ought to be  (old what the trade policy of Butain *���������������������������  altei    the wai is gong to be, so that ���������*  they can make then arrangements ac-  coidingly  If we are to attack this question effectively, theie must be mganizatiou.     ','  We must attack it systematically and  scientifically.    Wc must see what Britain and    tlie    various    paits_   of the  empire,   too,   can   produce   not   only  with   commercial,   but   with   national  piofit. ' W<: must exploit every opportunity, desclop every resource within  the ernpno.    We must above all see      '  that  oui   industiies  are  not dependent   upon   the   raw   materials   wJiicli  our potential or actual enemies contiol.

'���������s4-?,  SOME years ago, and not so very many at that, the correctly gowned woman would have  held up her hands in horror at the idea of playing tennis, golf or anything more  strenuous than croquet hr silk.   "Horrors!" she would have said, "think of the extravagance to waste a good silk frock on sports I"   She has changed her opinion now, if the  new sports styles which she is evidently accepting with alacrity are any sign.  For real sportswomen there is nothing more practical than silk.    Sports silks have  been brought to such a state of perfection that they are very durable.   Moreover, they are  -invariably washable, and they are delightfully cool as well.   For sports styles, which stand  more for informal wear among smartly dressed women than for real sport, silk is eminently adapted.  Tussore has come in with a flourish this year. The model showing a combination of  plain and green-and-white-striped tussore is practical for strenuous action on the part of  the wearer or for comfortable mornings on beach or hotel porch. The horizontal stripes  and the odd swinging pockets are features to be remembered.  Very patriotic is the red, white and blue frock of wash silk and white crepe de chine.  The arrangement of the coloring is so artistically done that it cannot offend the eye, but,  indeed, seems to satisfy more than could the plain blue and white. A more daring red  tie might be worn by the dark-haired maiden. This is an unusually comfortable style for  the tennis girl, as it allows perfect freedom of movement and is becoming to the uncorseted  or only slightly corseted figure. The blouse is a slip-over-the-head style with no awkward  openings to come undone.  Jersey silks are indeed lovely. They are not expensive, either; and made into .the  very informal frock pictured, are not beyond the pocketbooks of the average woman.  Georgette crepe sleeves make this model a cool one, and raise it slightly above the strictly  sports frock.    A deep sailor collar in back" and a sailor knot in front suggest boating.  The sportswoman is nothing if not adaptable in her actions. Why not, then, an  adaptable frock? Behold the golf suit���������or it could be used for any other sport���������of pongee  in natural color, with a detachable panel and jumper of checked pongee barred in red.  When milady starts from the clubhouse she looks as chic as chic can be. On the links  she discards the over-panel and beneath she wears a divided skirt. She buttons up her  long sleeves on her shoulder, and she is ready to play ball. Can you ask anything more  really in the spirit of sport?  ��������� t rui i*'j,*������'-^,1w-i,i''Lfiiii ���������}'���������/ v I *t *       ���������-       . , ���������' *     "*-������������������- ��������� '��������� -    - ��������� ���������   iilli   i   || ���������-''*-���������.'.������������������-���������.   .

Reversion   to   Shields   and   Armor   in
Modern Warfare
The present war has upset so many
generally accepted principles as to
what has hitherto been considered
modern waifar'e that the reversion to
sheilds and armor does not come as
a surprise. In their early stages of
the war, there was a preference for
small shields, because of their poit-
ablcncss, protection of the individual
soldier in the trenches, economy and
adaptability, to the requirements of
the sapper, and the barbed wire destroyer.
The Jtussian has a prcdiliction
foi the shield, and during the battles
that determined the fate of Poland
they employed shields so large that
they had to be mounted on wheels.
But experience has proved that this
shield is of little value when shell
hrc has found its target.
When, after a storm of high explosives, the enemy resorted, to infantry attack, the Kussians were compelled in many instances to abandon positions held by shield-protected ,troops,. with the result that many
of these revived methods of defence
fell into the hands of the enemy.
An authority on the, subject makes
this observation: "We may draw the
conclusion that , individual steel
shields can be used to good advantage; but larger shields, because of
their bulk, are not a success. Protection against light arms and 'artillery fire during an attack in the open
remains a matter of concealment,
with each mam taking advantage of
such cover" as "he can find."f
So that there is still much left^to
the individual initiative of the soldier.
. As long ago as in the wars of the
Greeks, shields or shelters of metal
were employed in siege operations,
and were only abandoned when -gunpowder gave us cannons and other
JThe West is Doing  Its Share  in   Proportionate Enlistment
Figures published by the Winnipeg
Telegram show the astonishing fact
that apart from,the province of Quebec, the Dominion is well on the way
to realization of the authorized army
of half a million men-
Taking the Dominion by provinces,
it. is found that Alberta has raised
more than her population would warrant in proportionate distribution of
the lialf million army. British Columbia and the Yukon have to raise only
2,000 more men to be up to strength.
Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Northern Ontario, the territory still administered as Militia District No. 10, requires only seven thousand additional
men to be up to strength.
Further east the prospects are not
quite 'so bright, but Ontario should
not find great difficulty in raising a!
large part of .the 41,000 men still
required for her proportion, nor the
Mariitme provinces the 36,000 men
required there.
Quebec is, of course, the drawback. In proportion to population
Quebec should raise an army of 133,-
000 men, and so far has recruited only
32,000. 'Some'means'.must'bo found of
awakening t-iuebec to the natron's
needs. The other provinces altogether require to raise only 86,000 additional men (', have the whole proportion required of them. Quebec is 100,-
000 short of her proportion.
Enlistments now total about 315,-
000 men, a figure truly astonsih-
Bringing "Down Aeroplanes
Guns     Are   Now   Beating   the   Enemy
The steadily increasing number of
aeroplanes that are brought down by
anti-air craft guns, along with the
long lists "of aviators in 'the casualty
lists, point to the fact that the gun is
gaining the superiority over the flier.
, Not only has tho weapon been improved; together with the projectile,
but the sighting arrangements have
also undergone , pronounced modification and ���" simplification to' facilitate the expeditious picking up of the
range and laying of the weapon upon
the rapidly moving enemy.
As rapidity of fire is also highly
important, special' attention has been
devoted to tho mechanism of the
weapon, its sysem of recoil, and
loading arrangements. The broad
principles of the l-'iench rapid-
fire system, as shown' by the famous
"75," have been widely adopted and
adapted to this particular duty, with
the result that the anti-aircraft gun
of tho moment is about 600 per cent,
more formidable than the type in service eighteen months ago.
The disposition of the weapons,
combined with the system of firing,
has also undergone a revolution. Instead of a haphazard arrangement
they are now planted upon a mathematical and scientific basis, and the
firing is quite as methodical.
It is now possible to ensure that a
hostile aeroplane is under fire the
whole time it is passing over a certain zone. The latter may represent
a belt thirty or more miles in width.
As soon as the aeroplane passes beyond the range of one group of guns
it enters that of another group, irrespective of the direction of flight.
Moreover, this system possesses the
advantage of ilexilrbity, since additional units can be brought into use
with the minimum of delay and difficulty.
One result of this present superiority of the gun over the aeroplane
is that the airmen have been forced
to fly at greater altitudes than was
rornierly the case. Machines have
been brought to the ground after
having been struck at a height of 8,-
000 feet. At the moment even 10,000
feet is not regarded as being a safe

On New Breaking
Prepares the Soil for Wheat, and  Provides  Found^ Crop
J. H. Grisdale, B. Agr. Director Dominion Experimental Farm, Ottawa,
says:     ,
' For the new settler or the man
with new breaking done before May
25 or L'C, fla:: otters an opportunity tor.
money making this year on this land
such as is not possible with any other,
crop. Breaking about three inches
deep, so as to "fill all openings or
space between the furrows, and to
conserve any available moisture, as
well as make a solid seed bed, will be
such a preparation as gives a fair
chance ot a fair crop of Uax, if good
seed is carefully sown belore the first
of 'June. Sow seed at the rate of 30
to 401b  per acre.
"Where wheat seeding has progressed rather slowly it will often be advisable to sow the last* few acres intended for wheat to flax instead. The
cash returns from the two crops are
likely to be practically equal ��� this
"The flax crop will rot the sod on
new breaking, and leave the soil in at
least as good condition for wheaf'as
if it had been summerfallowed. Besides, it will provide a substantial 'revenue, 'for flaxseed has averaged
around $2 a bushel for several months

People who don't know about food
should never be allowed to feed persons  with weak stomachs.
Sometime ago a young woman had
an attack of scarlet fever, and when
convalescing was permitted to cat
anything she wanted. Indiscriminate
feeding soon put her back in bed with
severe stomach and kidney trouble.
'���There. I stayed,"she says, "three
months, with my stomach in such condition that I could take only a few tea-
spoonfuls of milk or beef juice at a
time. Finally Grape-Nuts was brought
to my attention and I asked my doctor
if I might eat it. He said 'yes' and I
commenced at once.
"Tho food did me good from the
start and I was soon out o*. bed and
recovered from the stomach trouble. I
have gained ten pounds and am able
to do all household duties* some days
sitting down only long enough to eat
my meals. I can eat anything that
one ought to eat, but I still continue
to eat Grape-Nuts at breakfast and*-'
supper and like it ' "tier every day.
"Considering that I could stand only
a short time, and that a glass of water
seemed 'so heavy,' I am fully satisfied
that Grape-Nuts -lias been everything
to me and that my return to health

Germany's-Vast Gun Output
It is well understood among naval
men that the limiting element in the
question of rapid construction of a
navy is the speed .'with which the
guns and armor can bo produced.
Speaking upon tins question, a
critic of the United States navy plans
draws attention to' the-fact that during the naval agitation-"-of.-1909 in
England, the then : First Lord, Mr.
Mclvenna, stated that it was not beyond the power of the Krupp establishments to produce all the guns and
armor necessary for eight dreadnoughts per year. This output would
bo additional to the enormous home
and foreign orders for \yar. material
taken care of at Essen. 7 .
Hence, having in view the preseni
increased size of the ."Krupp"works-;
this authority believes that the Essen
and affiliated factories could easily
supply the guns and armor for all
the el'readnouoghts and other ships
which Germany is capable of building. T
This is true of no other country
but Great Britain.

More than 1,000 rats are being used
in the agricultural chemistry department of the University of Wisconsin
in an effort on the part of Professor
E. V. McCollum to discover the ideal
food that will make people live the
most efficient livea and grow at the
best practical rate.
Although the experiments are being
made upon rats, the results are known
to be the same a3 if they were made
upon human beings. Professor McCollum has already been at work for
seven years on this problem.
He has . early discovered the perfect food, but is still in search of the
chemical parts of the two unknown
compounds that will make up the Ideal
food for which he is searching.
Nature  Needs  Aid   in Making

In the spring the system needs a
tonic. To be healthy you must have
new blood, just as the trees must have
new sap to renew their vitality. Nature demands it, and without this new
blood j-ou will feel weak and languid.
You may have twinges of rheumatism
or the sharp stabbing pains of neuralgia. Often there are disfiguring
pimples or eruptions on the skin. In
other cases there is -merely a feeling
of tiredness and a variable appetite.
Any of these are signs that the blood
is out of order���that the indoor life
of winter has lessened your vitality

It is interesting to record, says a
special despatch from Simla, that the
recent winter had been the quietest
on record for the past live years on
the northwest frontier of India.
Doubtless the strict neutrality maintained by the Amir Afghanistan has
contributed to this result. India continues to make munificent war gifts
and the manufacture of munitions is
proceeding briskly, many shipments
having been made already. The development of existing factories is receiving the diligent attention of the
government. The trade of India continues  satisfactory.

It is rumored that Miss  Ramsay has resigned her position here as teacher, to take  .effect after the school closes,  which will be felt very much  by both parents and pupils, as  they feel they never had another to iill the place so well,  and the children all seem so  well pleased and speak so highly  of their teacher. Let us hope  it has been a mistake as to her  leaving.  One day last week Mrs. Gluts.  Til ley   of    Oroville    and    her  daughter and husband thought  they would take  a day outing,  so they came up on the train to  Ashnola and  spent  the day between     (rains.      While    there  they  caught   a   few   fish,   but  when   they boarded  the down j  train they encountered  the majesty of the law in   the form of  Game .Warden Chisler, who ini-j  mediately  put   them  under ar- j  rest for fishing in B. C. without  a  licence.    When   they  got  to j  Keremeos he took them  off the ;  train and brought them  up before   Judge  Coleman,   but the  judge thought as Mr. Tilley was  a    .Canadian     and    that    the  daughter was   born in Canada  and had lived most  of  her  life  in B. C. that -..perhaps she had a  right to a lew of the fish, and  pardoned them for the hideous  c rime. The train had a lot of  work to do here that day and  vas held about half an hour, so  'hey got through in time to  ���������jhake the Canadian dust from  their feet and board the train  for the land of the free, having  gone to a foreign country, committed a crime, been arrested,  tried, freed and fled, all within  six hours; that's going some.  Our theatre goers will be delighted with the announcement,  that the Kichter Hall, Keremeos, will play our old favorites, the Hostoniaus, June 20t:h.  Bringing with them the zest of  youthful accomplishment, this  famous company of twenty  young ladies will return for  their twelfth visit. Those who  remember their last engagement, or possibly tho past eleven  visits of the Bostonians, will require nothing more than the  announcement of the engagement of the engagement of thi.s  company, which is composed  entirely of girls. It has been a  double pleasure for the past  eleven years to have the Bostonians visit Keremeos, pleasant for the individual members  of the company and also for  their many local friends, and it  is hoped that this coming engagement will prove more mutually gratifying to those of the'  past. There will be many girls  in this returning company who  have been here several times  before and who, consequently,  have many good friends among  the local theatre goers. Thorn  Ilellen, Patsie Henry, Dixie  White, Mabel Gardiner. In a  Mitchell, and other stars will be  greeted by their host of friends  and there will be many new  faces which have never before  been seen here. They will play  a smart musical comedy, "Tipperary Mary."     c *  A '-work-a-day" picnic, will be  held on the 21st of June at 2 p.  m., to which all the men with  plenty of public spirit and a  strong arm are particularly requested to attend. The idea of  this picnic is to clean up the  park as much as possible and  especially to clean out the underbrush so that there will be  no danger of another outbreak  of fire such as occurred last  year. Fortunately the main  clump of pine trees escaped iii  the last fire, but it should be  be sufficient warning to us that  some means must be taken to  protect the beautiful clump of  pines that still remain. It has  taken years to produce these  trees; in fact, they were old  trees when the present town-  site was established, yet in their  present  condition half an  hour  XA.KE  er  For stomach  and Bowel Trouble  r  Hedley Drug & Book Store  He>cHe>yf B. C  of lire in tlie dry weather would  make   thorn   the  unsightly and  useless dumb of burned timber  that the smaller clump burned  last.year now  is.    Besides tins,  a fire starting in the main clump  would take  with   it  the  whole  rink 'outfit,   which   would   be a  serious loss iii itself, but which  could   be   replaced,   while   the  loss of the   trees  could   not  be  replaced in our  lifetime.    His  hoped that- all the men of Kere  moos and the district will make  an effort to get out and help in  this work and bring  such tools  with them as will be required���������  mattocks,   brush hooks,   brush  sythes and rakes.   The ladies of  the W. I have kindly offered to  provide refreshments and  feel  that after  the  very  successful  picnic given by  them last week  that some such effort should bo  made to   prevent   any   further  loss of  trees,   which   make the  park such   an  attractive  place  to  hold gatherings..   It  should  be borne in mind that  at some  not distant date a fall  fair will  be  our principal   event, 'which  will no doubt include the flower  show now being  held annually,  and at that time a park with a  suitable building  for  the fair,  will  make   a    most   attractive  place for visitors from the out  side to come to.  ���������i*Bh th A, t  Hwiieii Trading 60, Ltd  Stone Crocks  With Covers  Half-Gallons  -  - 50c.  1 Gallon    -    -   -  65c.  2 Gallons    -   -    $1.15  3 Gallons   -    -    $1.50  5 Gallons   -    -    $2.25  See Ours First*  i  Mey Trading 60.
