Friday morning, while repairing crib work below the  dam, Ole Thompson fell into the  Similkameen river and was  drowned.  It appears that after placing  a large rock he stood on it to  force it down or ascertain if it  was on solid ground. He tried  it several times and. the rock  gave way, ��������� letting him into the  swiftly CTinhing stream. His  head and one arm appeared  above the water a couple of  times. It was impossible for  those working near to give any  assistance, for it was only a  few seconds until the body was  out of sight. The body has not  yet been recovered.  Deceased was a Norwegian  about 35 years of age, and leaves  a wife and two small children  to mourn his loss. He came  here three years ago from Wilbur, Wash., and was ,in the employ of the Daly Reduction Co.  It takes more of an expert to  examine the shell committee  evidence than it does to  amine the shells.���������Tatler.  ex-  Germany is now aausageless.

S. and Mrs. Sproule, and  Mrs. W. A.' McLean left Thursday last to spend a couple of  weeks at the coast.  Three auto loads of Hedley-  ites went up to Princeton last  Thursday evening "to attend a  meeting of the county Orange  lodge.  A. D. Broomfield, Del Young,  and J. Wigmore of Princeton  passed through town Sunday  morning on their way to Keremeos. "  ..- -- ~-  . Owing to the drowning accident Friday last the band  dance that evening was postponed until tomorrow evening,  Friday, 23rd inst.  Major Megraw, inspector"rof  Indian agencies, passed through  town Saturday on his way from  Princeton to Penticton. The  K. V. R. was stalled by high  water near Merritt, and pas  sengers for lake points had to  go through to Penticton by  auto.  The name of Pte. Arthur  Coles appears in the casualty  list of the 16th inst. as having  died of wounds. He was for  several years a-resident of Hedley and joined the 0. M. R. at  Vernon. He was only 23 years  of age and" respected by alibis  acquaintances. He was born in  Taunton, Somersetshire, Eng.  With the warm weather of  last week the Similkameen river  rose rapidly, bringing down  stumps, logs, trees, roots, fencing, dead animals, and garbage  of all kinds. Thursday and Friday the power company's dam  was continuously in danger  from log jams, and a force of  men were kept busy blowing  them up as they formed against  the Stone -^ie'rs. Saturday very  little drift wood came down,  and the cold weather of the  past few days put a stop to the  vagaries of the river.  Max Ewart,.immigration officer at Penticton, was in town  Monday on business connected  with his office. He interviewed  a number of residents in reference to violations of the immigration regulations and the  importation of foreign labor.  Those interviewed "didn't know  of even a gray-back that wasn't  entitled to graze in the country.  If the immigration department  would use a little horse sense  and pasport all foreigners, much  of the difficulty of the immigration officers would be avoided.  It is safe to say that a thousand  foreign laborers cross the line  annually into British Columbia  in violation of regulations on  importation of foreign"labor..  Axel Peterson returned from  his hunting trip last week with  a couple  of  bear  hides and a  story of an enormous silver-tip,  that left  tracks 13 inches long  and  took a  trap and a log six  inches in diameter with it.   The  bear  was not seen, but it was  either a very large one, or had  bohunk feet.    And then it may  have stepped twice in the same  place just for a   joke.   Silvor  tips are some jokers  in a bear  way.    A bald-face,  near Three  Forks, put Dutch Gits up a tree  and kept him  there  for twelve  hours, and that c'was after the  war started,   too.   She   would  go into  the   underbrush,   Gus  would come down, she and her  cubs would come  out, and Gus  would shin up again, while Mrs.  Baldface and family jibed   at  him in Nova Scotian,  which is  the language of the MacPhees,  the   MacKenzies,   the   McDonalds, the'MacLeans, the McKays,  the   Mclntoshes,  the   Mooneys  and the Frasers.    But Gus had  been in town a couple of weeks  just before Von Kluck captured  Paris.  <* r  Th<j Mystery Unsolved.  The date of holding the examinations   of   A. J.   Wicker-  sham, Angus McLean  and Lester Armstrong,  charged by   a  coi'oner's   jury with   direct or  indirect responsibility for  the  death of Henry Hofmeier, was  was   set   for   Friday  last,  but  was continued over until Saturday at  1  o'clock p. m.    At the  hour Jjfixed Prosecuting Attorney Johnson,   Deputy   Sheriff  Ward,  the three -accused men  and two or three Canadian officials were present.    Judge Parsons was  prepared to conduct  the proceedings.    As the crime  was committed  in  British Columbia,  if a  crime   was   committed at all,  the  prosecuting  attorney   and   sherifi   had   no  jurisdiction in the  case, and offered to turn the prieoners over  to the British Columbia officials,  and they could have  charge of  the   examination.     These   officers, who claim to have made a  thorough investigation, did not  feel    that    sufficient   evidence  could be  be secured to convict  any one  of  the  crime, and de-  clinpd  to carry on an examination or go further into the matter at  that   time.    Under  the  circumstances, all that the judge  could   do  was  to   dismiss   the  case and discharge the prisoners. Prosecuting Attorney J ohn-  son stated that at  no time did  the county   officers   feel,   considering the nature of  the evidence,  that the  case could  be  taken up and prosecuted in this  county,  as   the   allegad" crime  "was committed  outside of the  jurisdiction  of the  county and  state.    In the face  of  the findings of the  coroner's  jury the  local officers could  do no more  nor less than  hold  the accused  for the action of  the Canadian  officers.    When  the   case   was  referred to those officers the responsibility of the county officers ended.���������Oroville Gazette.  Some Prayer.  Here is another personal experience   of   an   officer at the  front.    An army chaplain Avas  conducting a funeral   not   far  behind the firing  line, and had  reached that portion of the service which reads something like  this.

Every woman at the head of  a home; every girl in offices, shops  and factories is subjected to more or  less worry. These cannot.be avoided.  But it is the duty of every woman  and every girl to save her strength  as much as* possible, and to build up  her system to meet unusual demands.  Her future ��������� health depends upon it.  To guard against a break-down in  health the blood must be'kept rich,  red and pure. To i:ecp the blood in  this condition nothing can equal Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. They strengthen  the nerves, restore the appetite, bring  the glow of health fo pallid cheeks,  and renewed energy to listless people.  Women cannot always rest when they  should, but they can keep up their  strength and keep away disease by the  occasional use of Dr. Williams' Pink  Tills. Mrs,. A. Rhodes. Hamilton,  Out., says. "A few years ago on coming to Car.ada, working long hours,  and close confinement began lo tell  upon me. L^was completely run down,  and finally could do no work. I was  pale, suffered fiom headaches, did not  rest well, and felt altogether very  miserable.

Butterfield, in his "Chapters in Ru-  ral Progress," . says:  "One reason why agricultural education has not made more rapid progress  is because the children of the country  schools have been taught in such a  manner as to lead them to think that  there is no chance for brains in farming."  That is very^true. But the children  do not get allN>f their education or  menial ideas in the school. The home  and the father in the conduct of his  farm are responsible for what ideas  the sons have about farming far more  than the school. How many farm  homes keep a good supply of farm  papers and books for the boys fo read?  How many fanners show, by the- conduct of their farms, that there is a  chance for brains in farming?

Grippe Left Her  Seriously  BUT I%PD'S  KIDNEY PILLS CURED  HER  COMPLETELY  Mrs. Halquist Tells Just Why She is  the Firm Friend of the Grand Canadian Kidney Remedy, Dodd's Kidney  Pills.  Bangsund, Susie���������((Special)���������Mrs.  Pete Halquist, a well known resident  here, is a firm believer in Dodd's Kidney Pills-, and is always ready to tell  the reason why.  '-'About a year ago," Mrs. Halquist  says, "my little girl was taken ill with  the grippe. She was sick in bed for  three weeks with pains in the joints.  They were swollen and stiff.  "She had cramps in her muscles, so  it was awful hard for her to : get  around for the longest time. After  she was able to be around, her skin  became harsh and came off in scales.  "After using two boxes of: Dodd's  Kidney Pills she was as well as ever  she was in her life. She lias;been  strong and  healthy   ever  since."  Xhe ������������������after-effects" of grippe are-  more to be dreaded than the disease  itself. That is because they generally  act on weak kidneys and put them out  of working order. Sick kidneys 'ire  the cause of rheumatism,', backache,  dropsy and numerous other diseases.  The one sure way to avoid them is to  keep the kidneys toned up and able to  do their work. The best way to keep  the kidneys healthy is-to use Dodd's  Kidney Fills.  l***** .''AM��������� JEmm': ������Jm  You will find relief In Zam-Buk!

Dr. Woods Hutchison writes in the  National Daily: "When alcohol was  first discovered it was all but worshipped, it 'was looked upon as the  magician, the consoler , that could  make tlie sick well, the sorrowful  merry, and the poor man a millionaire. Children, were given it to make  the hi grow; workmerr"drank it to make  them strong; niinistei.s took it just before going into the pulpit to fill them  with the spirit, and mothers depended  upon it to enable them to nourish the  next generation.

A limited  area of well prepared land sown with  clean seed will be more profitable  than a large area of badly prepared  land on which dirty seed is used."  "For the. new settler or the man  with new breaking done before May  2f> to 26th, flax offers an opportunity  for money making this year on this  land such as is not possible with any  other crop.

But, in turn, if seems that mih-  iiy happenings alone will _ produce  that state of public feeling' in the  Jbelligerent countries upon which  peace can be ioundej."  So Professor Oman, The dislriiguish-  jd Oxford historian, answered a question of the New Yore Times correspondent as to when and through what  [tcps he thought the war would end.  j n. J 884 Piofessor Oman brought out  Ids first volume. "The Art of War in  Ihe' Middle Ages." Since that date, as  V study of his published works will rc-  [-a.il, he has probably authoritatively  -xplained moie wars to more students  [if history than any other living his-  lonan. 'And his views upon the present war arc interesting for further  heasons.

But for peace only upon  Impossible jterms. There is more fight-  fug .to be done."*' ��������� ������������������  '"This means,.then,'' I said, as Professor Oman paused and looked reflectively into the lire, "that many  |)i-ccious lives are yet to be lost; that  Milt 'deeper layers of the world's  .voalth are yet to be wasted away;  that'agonies of all sorts are yet to be  ���������ndured. Therefore, professor, would  j-ou hold the immediate substitution  ���������it- negotiations foi* battles to be deplorable?" '  'Not by any moans, if possible,"  'ho/ answered quickly, "but what is  tlie use when each side's .terms are  IroQ far apart; when one side feels that  Itliey are on top today and the other  Jiiilc 'riglitly mindful of the price they  rhave already paid, is profoundly confident that they will be on top -to-  Jm'orrow? It is a high duty to see that  Jin any case Germany's force-philoso-v  Iphy does not profit her. We have'un-  Idertakcn to see this war through to  la 'successful end,, and wc have very  Igood reasons for believing-that wc can  |do this if we only hang^on.  "Let us take, for instance, the Ger-  [niari casualties. A' recent estimate by  iColonel Keppingfon.' the military cor-  frespondent of The limes, pretty accurately represents what the Germans  [have acknowledged. Out of a total  [available 9,000,000 men it is more  nhan conservative to say that 2.700,-  [OOO are already out of action for good,  simple calculation will show how  [such losses, even taking into account  [the classes which are yearly called  ho the colors, must in tho end exhaust  [their reserves. And. this being thp  I case, -it is demonstrable that their  'lighting forces will ���������eventually suffer  through lack o fmen.  "The way in which they made their  casualties public is very significant  At the commencement of the war they  printed the most elaborate details of  every casualty; the place and date of  the action were given, the character of  the wound stated, and sometimes H  was even told where the man was in  hospital. All of this, too, was allowed  to be reprinted in the newspapers.  But now the German papers are not  allowed' to reprint or even to comment upon the casualties, and the  full details as given in the earlier  months of the war, are no longer  .state"d in the official lists. The normal German regiments are so local that,  when a battalion is exterminated the  local effect would be too depressing,  as indeed it has proved  "But, there are a number of interesting things besides this, which a  constant comparison since the war of  the British and German press brought  home to me.   One is the very careful  Grain Transportation  Under   Normal     Weather     Conditions  Railways   Should   be   able   to  Handle the  Crop  Immediately after the recent opening' oi navigation on the St. Lawrence  Iukes, there was,a i-ush lor vessel accommodation lor ihe transportation  of grain to tide water. About foui  million bushels of wheat were shipped  from Port Arthur arid Fort William  in vessels in the three weeks prior to  the 22nd of April, inclusive. More  than double this amount had been  brought out by rail after the season  of navigation closed last December,  and during the same interval thert  were shipped by the same route nearly a million and a piarter bushels of  oats, and small quantities of barley  and flax. On the 22nd there-were in  stocks awaiting shipment in vessels  27,094,000 bushels of wheat, 9,352,652  of oats, 3,913,662 of barley, nearly a  million of flax.  It would be unwise lo infer from,  the experience of last, winter that the  railway companies cannot profitably  handle the transportation of grain  after the closing and before the. opening of navigation. Owing to the very  abnormal conditions that prevailed  during the winter ihcro was a great  scarcity cf freight cars, which may  not occur next winter. The immediate effect was to raise factitiously the  price of -wheat that happened to be  stored either at or near the -head of  ocean navigation. Had there been no  shortage ">f cars much more wheat  might have been carried east irom  Winnipeg, thus making a better showing for (-he railways than the bare  statistics of this year would indicate.  ���������Toronto Globe.

This indicates  that the people need encouraging, and  is just one more bit of evidence that  makes it clearly expedient, as weli  ���������is our duty, to keep on affecting Ger-  nvan pyschology."  .

Considerable  success was achieved and this year it  is not to be doubted Hit) experiment  will be extended with greater results.  In fact in many centres plans made  last Jail or during the winter arc already being carried out.  Germany has laid down utilization  of the land���������every foot of land���������as  one of her first principles. Every incli  of land, according lo the Teutonic proclamation, that is not used is so much  of the country's lesources wasted.  France has adopted a regulation to  the effect that every bit of space must  be utilized for production; failing this  being clone by the owner the state is  to take possession. Britain lias given  orders that golf courses and all meadow land are to be used for grazing  purposes', and that previous pastures  are to be put down in ciops. Private  parks are also being wooded out, and  the land devoted to practical agriculture. A campaign is being conducted, having for its object the utilization  of back-yard gardens and all manner  of vacant land.- Thus Ihe chief belligerents arc setting the world an ex-  ample in production and tlnift that  Canada would be wise to profit by as  widely as possible, and that municipalities and public bodies should do  their utmost to encourage.  Scores of reports of the operations  carried on in the season of 3 915 by  small householders speak of produce  being grown worth from twenty-five  to fifty dollars, every dollar of which  means so much added to the wealth  of the country, as well as saved in  the cost, of living, l-'inancial profit  is not the only gain forthcoming. Lessons of thrift and industry are incul-  -cated, and the whole household, from  the oldest lo the. youngest come under  the influence of those, qualities.. They  also have the gratification of eating  fresh vegetables, the enjoyment of  which is tremendously enhanced by  the proud knowledge ," Unit,-they arc  home-grown. -. What the families cannot eat. themselves they have, the  pleasure of giving or selling to some  charity. It, is hard to imagine any  greater or more enduring satisfaction  that a household in modest circumstances can. experience than that to"be  derived as the reward of loving industry in a back-yard garden.  Miracle Wheat  Popular Ideas Regarding Alleged Productivity of Certain Varieties  of   Wheat  The  United    Stats    department    of  agriculture disposes oi the "miracle"  wheat idea in the    following    ftatc-  ment:  The" notion that there is'a wonderful wheat which will make the fortune of anyone who plants it seems  to be almost as old a.-:agriculture itself. In this country, at lea-5i, such  an asscition was made for the so-  called Jerusalem wheat as early as  1870. and under the name of Alaska  wheat, this identical vaiiety is still  being pushed upon the unwary at exorbitant puces toi seed. Almost equally exaggerated claims are made ioi  tho Sloner variety, but this particular  wheat has not such a, long history.  Because of the many attempts made  by promoters to foist thin wheat under one name or another on the farmers of tho country, the United States  department of agriculture has made  caieful tests of their value hi bulletin  357 the results' of these tests are said  to show conclusively that neither of  these varieties of \vheat possesses any  peculiar .quality which justifies high  piices for the seed. -,  As a matter of fact, the so-called  Alaska wheat belongs to the Poulard  sub-species. Poulard -wheats are grown  to some extent in the Mediterranean  region-of Europe, but not to any commercial extent in this country. The  tests of the wheat made by the department of agriculture in a number  of different conditions have never resulted in extraordinary yields and, in  many instances, not .even fair yields  have been obtained. Milling tests  have shown also that in this respect  Alaska whgat is not as good as many  other widely grown varieties.  These facts, however, have not prevented tho promoters at various times  from asSerting that yields of from J00  to 222 1-2 bushels an acre .can be obtained from this wheat.  * These pretensions have been bolstered up by .financial1' explanations of  its origin. According to one authority-the probabilities are that the Jerusalem wheat, which Dr. Kcemle had  'in J807, originated in Palestine. A  traveler brought a 'small sheaf of it  back with him to Ireland and hung  it as a sign above the alehouse which  he kept in Dublin.  - A farmer chanced to pick up some  seeds from the sheaf, planted them,  and some years later sold the produce  of several acres at about $3.60 a lb.  Some,of tins seed was brought over  to America and distributed among the  members of the Philadelphia Society  for the Promotion of Agriculture. In  this way it probably came to the  knowledge of Dr. Keemle. The members of the society, however, do not  appear to have appreciated, it, for it  created no stir in this country.  *- This is tlie most authentic explanation of its introduction that we have.  A favorite storv with promoters is to  the effect that "when tho coffin of an  Egyptian mummy '-i.000 or 4,000 years  old was opened some wheat was  found in rt. the seed was planted,  but only a single kernel grew.  This, however, was a wondeiful  yicldcr arrd very different from any'  other wheat known. This story is responsible for such names as "Mummy," "Wheat 3,000 iears Old."  "Egyptian"  and "^Miracle."  It is, of course, an absurdity, for  even under the most favorable conditions seeds of wheat do not keep their  vitality more than a few years.  In 1908 this wdieat was brought forward again, this time not as a product of Egypt, but of Alaska. It was  asserted that an Idaho farmer had  found in a secluded spot of the Alaskan coast a wheat plant with a  branched head. He had brought back  one head, sowed its seed that fall (in  1904), obtained 7 pounds to sow in  1905, and by 1906 had 1,545 pounds, an  increase of 220 fold. From this it  was argued that one bushel of seed  per acre would produce 220 bushels.  A seed grain company had obtained  the seed from the farmer and would  dispense it at the rate of .1>20 a bushel.  Upon investigation the department  round that" about 700 acres of the  wheat were being grown for the company in Idaho. "'The average yield an  tore was'estimated, not at 220 bushels  The Gasoline Shortage  Western   Canada * May   Plan   an    Im-  portanjy Part ' in    Solving  the Difficulty  Hard on the wheels of the automobile    comes    a problem   born   of its  popularity.    Ten years ago the automobile was built for men of wealth.  Its cost made it the symbol of    that  class which does not mind the price.  With a one-lunger at fifteen hundred  but at 25 bushels.  This investigation was followed hy  a warning notice from the department  and also by a fraud order from the  postofnee department against the advertising material circulated by the  company. In spile of this fact, however, another campaign was begun in  1909 .and in 1915 the wheat was actually placed on exhibition at (he  Panama-Pacrfic exposition. Last year  also the same wheat was offered for  sale at $7 a bushel under the name of  Kgypiau scven-heaned wheat. At  other times this wheat has been sold  under the names of Eldorado, many-  Ileaded. Many-Spiked, Multiple-Headed, Reed Smyrna, Syrian and Wild  Goose.  The claims made hy the promoters  of the "Stouer" or "Miracle" wheat  are fully as exaggerated, though less  romantic,; than those of the Alaska  advocated.  According to the discoverer,  iir the  dollars, and the more adAranced two  and four cylinder cars at twice that  figiuc, the dieam of the horseless  cairiage vas the univeisal vehicle was  Utopian indeed.  But inventors and manufacture's  assured the public the dream would be  realized. 'I ho prices of a decade ago  were due to costly experiments, exclusive patents, and limited pioduction. These conditions would pass  away. One maker said lie would build  a car so cheap that the man who could  not afford to keep a hoise and bugiry  woifld drive it. This piomisc had been  literally fulfilled. In the United States  alone there are today'2,225,000 automobiles" in use, compared with 85,000 in  1005, and 10,000 in 1899. The automobile rides on the crest of popularity.  And born of this popularity comes  a problem, foreseen only by the more  astute. A gun without powder and a  locomotive without eoal arc of exactly  the same service ab an automobile  without gasoline, l'-normous etlorts  have been made by fho oil industry  to keep pace with the, demand. The  production of gasoline in the United  States has been increased from 0,680,-  000 barrels in 1899 to 41,000,000 barrels  in 1915, an increase of 512 per cent.  But in the same period the automobiles in use increased 22,150 per cent,  not to speak of the motor boats, motor  trucks, iann tractors, gasoline engines,  motor cycles  and  aeroplanes. -  , The situa-ron raced is an unusual  one. When,a shoitage occurs in wheat,  or cotton, or beef, or manufactured  products, the rising price induces a  greater production, and the balance  is, at least in some degiee, restored.  But gasoline is a natural product,  which, when consumed, cannot be restored. There is just so much gasoline, in the bowels of tho earth: when  it has been pumped oui, there will be  no 'more gasoline. And already the  day of exhaustion seems near at hand.  Secretary of the Interior Laire, of the  United States, iinds that ' some oil  fields are already 93 per cut. exhausted, and many of the biggest fields are  over fifty per cent, exhausted. Worse  still, the best gasoline fields are being  exhausted first.' The average production for 1915 was 6 1-2 gallons of crude  oil lo one gallon of gasoline, but iri  some of the big fields remaining,  forty gallons of crude oil are required  to produce one gallon of gasoline.  The matter is one of peculiar interest to Western Canada. With a prosperous farming community, a country  of great distances and good natural  roads, Western Canada is, par excellence, tho home of the automobile.  With millions of ac^s of fertile soil  unbroken by root, or stone, Western  Canada offers fields for motor traction  unknown in other lands Willi the  steadily increasing industrial importance of mixed agriculture, calling for  the gasoline engine en every farm, the  question of poVer supply is one ol  first importance.  And if may be that Western Canada,  which is so keenly interested in this  question, will play a big part in its  solution. Already oil wih a very high  gasoline content has been tapped in  Alberta, and it is impossible to say  what the luture may bring forth m  oil development in the ��������� province.  Enormous quantities oE wet gas (natural gas saturated with gaUMine) are  blowing into the atmosphere. By distillation this gasoline can be saved,  and some success has already attended  efforts in that direction.  Then there is the possibility of a  substitute liquid to take the place of  gasoline. Science is looking towards  alcohol, which can on pioduced from  many vegetable matters, and with  great sucess from potatoes. According  to Government returns Alberta grows  liioi-e potatoes to the acre than any  state in the United States, and these  potatoes are grown on cheap land compared with land varied at one hundred dollars an acre and more. After  potatoes have been used in the manii-  lacfure rf alcohol, the by-product  ma kits an excellent feed for stock. If  the imagination could giasp ihe unoccupied millions of Alberta's i>ch  acres producin" potatoes for the manufacture of alcohol, with the by-product being converted into beef, both  g.isoline and meat problems of civih-  zntion would be on a fair way to solution.

It  had 142 stems or tillers, and he. became convinced that its remarkable  tillering capacity would make it a  very wonderful wheat.  The three great advantages which  he asserted that this wheat possessed  were that it would oulyield any other  variety anywhere, that it. sent up more  stems from one seed than any other  variety of wheat, and that 20 pounds  of seed an acre produced the maximum yields, while other varieties required   120 pounds.  These assertions were investigated  by the department in much more extensive experiments than it made with  the Alaska wheat.

Valuable   Possession    Soon  to   be Acquired by  Great  Britain  It is repoiled that before the war  one of the largest importers of soda  in Great Britain, had acquired vas"t  lakes in British East Africa with the  object of bringing about a startling  reduction in the pncc of soap. On  the outbreak of the war that ambition was scorched, but not killed.  General Smutz, by his recent victories in Umbugive find Salanga is  bringing the day perceptibly nearer  when the other great soda lakes in  East Africa belonging to the. encmy  will become one of "the new assets  of the British Empire. As soda enters largely into the manufacture of  soap, the soap king refoned to may  soon see the realization of his laudable dream.  Be that as it may, it is certain that  the capture of the great German colony will form one of the great prizes  of war.  The colony is the largest and most  piofilable of the German colonies,  with 7..0J,*").lJGfi inhabitants. The va-  lied u-Mjuices of a tcrrilory nearly  twice as large as Prance " are immense.  Among the known sodic deposits  some are subterranean .while inany  others in the desert regions of western America, South America, Africa,  Turkestan, etc., are on the surface.  It niay.be noted in this connection  that'.an.'important discovery, mode  recently in the centre of the" African  continent, was announced shortly before the war by Paul Kestner. the  eminent engineer of Lille. To tlie  east of the great Lake Victoria and  about 200 miles from th.e shore of the  Indian Ocean is a, lake with an area  of about twenty-five', square miles,  formed apparently of one single mass  of solid sesquicarbonate of soda, almost chemically pure. According to  Mr. Trowbridge, an 'English'engineer  who has explored it, soundings at  various points of Lake Magadi found  no bottom at nine feet. Possibly the  depth is twice, three times, or oven  ten times, as great as this.  "Mr. Trowbridge notes that the lake  is  fed   by( many   streams   that  bring  lo it water charged, and    sometimes  saturated,    with  carbonate    of soda,  which shows that tlie real deposit is  not the lake itself, but that there is  somewhere    another    deposit    of'unknown but enormous importance. This  is  washed   by waters that, carry    its  soda into the lake under the  boiling  sun of the, tropics, and then the water  I evaporates and deposits the salts."  For many years Canada * produced *  more  eggs  than* we needed,  and "we  were   able   to  make  large   shipments  abroad.    We  kept on  increasing ,our  poultry,   but  at  the  same   time    our.  towns and cities were growing in size  and the consumption of eggs increased more rapidly than the "production.  The result was that, our exrjorts gradually disappeared, and strange to say,  agricultural  Canada  became   an  egg-  importing country. , People were surprised to learn through the press that-  shipments  came  in, -sometimes  from  Russia and frequently from  China���������;  two    of tho    greatest    egg-producing  countries   in , the   world." Of   recent  years   enormous   quantities  of-   cold-'  storage eggs from^the United  States  have been brought in to make up for  our deficiency.    Since the war broke ~  out the  foreign  supplies    for    Great  Britain have been seriously interfered -,  with.    Trade   with   Kussia  has   been* -.  largely cut off.    There was, therefore'  an opportunity for the shipment   "of -  Canadian eggs  to Great Britain.  In the Patriotism and production  campaign of last year it was stated  that there would be a deficiency "of '  100,000,000 eggs in Great Britain, thus  opening up an enormous market to  Canada. In addition- to the regular  consumption there has been an * increasing demand for stnctiy tresh  eggs for hospital requirements. The  clil] for fresh eggs lias been as- insistent as the call for socks and Red  Cross funds. Canadian eggs inspected and giaded have found a ready  maikel. This market can be held during the war and after the war if we  aie  reads*  To  la,*:<?  advantage  of  it.

The rever facing, ornamental straps and crushed  girdle are taffeta to match the blue of the suit. This is a many-buttoned affair, fastening with loops of the serge. A Salvation lassie bonnet is demure  enough for any young girl. It makes use of the new color, chartreuse, in a  velvet ribbon for the style note.  A one-piece dress for street or school wear should find a place in her  wardrobe. Again the stand-by blue serge has been used and lightened with  a dash of red in the sash tassels and bound buttonholes. This high-throated  style might not be becoming to every girl; but where it can be worn it must  be acknowledged it is stunning. Georgette crepe sleeves of blue make this  dress less heavy for spring. Deep pleats run from the yoke to skirt bottom  and are girdled by a loosely-tied sash of the material.  Gray is becoming more and more popular for the young girl, especially  when it is lightened with coral or blue. A gray ground with scattered buds  of roses in a foulard weave forms the bands on gray Georgette crepe. The  skirt is a full gathered model, its fullness confined to girdle depth by the three  rows of velvet ribbon in the rose shade. The flowing sleeves ar������ graceful and  the handkerchief fichu relieves the gray at the neck line.  Pastel shades for evening are the mode, without a doubt. Here the young  girl is again in her element, for always the soft delicate colorings suggest  youth. A frock of lavender tulle has been skillfully combined with turquoise  taffeta. The quaint quilling at the skirt bottom is also of the taffeta. Tiny  rosebuds weight the tulle points. Fruits and flowers girdle the waist. A very  new and not unbecoming note is the short shoulder cape of silver-threaded  lace which stops abruptly in the front, but continues across the back.  Surely fashion is kind to the younger girl this seasoa, Let her show her  gratitude by being becomingly and stylishly dressed.

The Need For, -\'.';  *   Cleaner Seed  ���������I -^  .At Terminal Elevators, at Port Arthur  and Fort William, in a Year 100,-  '000 Tons Were Deducted  . -The, need for careful cleaning of  ���������seed grain is apparetn when it is  stated that in one year the amount  of dockage for weeds at the terminal  elevators at Port Arthur and Fort  William  amounted  to  100,000  tons.  Needless  to  say,    the farmer paid  the  cost  of  harvesting this  crop  of  weeds,  the  cost of threshing it, the  cost of additional binder    twine    to  hold it in sheaf alogn with the good  grain, the  cost of hauling  it to  the  elevator,    and    the    cost of railway  .transportation, to say nothing of the  loss    incurred    by    the  amount    of  moisture  and"  plant  food    of which  .they  robbed the growing  grain   and  the cost of additional cultivation en-  [tailed the following year.  In a'recent speech thi Hon. W. Ft.  ^Motherwell quoted the annual , loss  fin' Saskatchewan due to weeds as  1$25,000,000. "When the farmers  Lstdp to realize the loss, of moisture  iwitli the consequent loss of crop,  liue Jto the growth of noxious weeds,  land that the aggregate loss in Saskatchewan-is at least $25,000,000 per  fannum,", said the provincial minis-  rter of agriculture, "it is hoped and  [oelieved that more attention will be  ���������>ald to this serious inroad into our  [annual ^profits with the view of re-  fducing this ever growing menace  Jto the .possible miniumurn."  .An *Ottawa government report  fdealing .with the 100,000 tons of  [weed seed docked U the lake termin-  |al' elevators during 1913 says: "The  [transport charges on this, material  tjfrom the western grain fields to ,the  [lake front were estimated at $650,-  1000. , Most of the screenings from  Ithe terminal elevators have been ex-  Iported to the United States, where  tthey' have been reck-anod and used  [in 'various forms for" the feeding of  live' stock. It was further shown  khat the feeding stuffs manufactured' from screenrngs not properly re-  [cleaned sometimes contain, thous-  |ands of vital noxious weed seeds  per lb. - It - is especially desirable  [to screen out the flner black seeds  [by means of a one-fourteenth inch  [perforated zinc screen.*  "These small..black seeds are not  fanly useless as ; fed, but "are' expensive adulterants ' aad their ad-  l mixture in any considerable quant-  Jjty .makes the feed unpalatable for  [.all kinds of stock. Such material  " should -never, be fed, as it is liable  [to .introduce weeds entailing the loss  [ot- thousands 'of dollars. The conclusion is that-more attention to the cleaning of grain as it is threshed will save  flhercost of transporting the screenings to the - terminal elevators and  ���������will, leave the grower in possession  of much valuable feed, which, if'he  .does' not need for his own use, will  find���������ready sale among live stock men.  "In connection witn this, subject,  the following communication . has  "been received from our" crop -report-"  ing correspondent, Mr. F. J. Bonner,  .of Ladstock, Saskatchewan: "I read  your pamphlet on grain screenings  jand particulars on dockage for weed  seeds. One - hundred thousand tons  seems an imemnse weight to be  hauled to the terminal elevators at  s. loss, but so long as tho farmers  go on cultivating more land than  they can attend to properly, the  same thing will continue, especially while prices keep high. There  is a very large quantity of weed  seeds in the grain this year, as the  newspapers were urging the farmers to put in all the crops they possibly could, and the hurry of threshing this year with all the grain almost in the "stook has prevented it  being well cleaned by the machines,  .especially when damp, as the weed  seeds will ,not blow out.  " 'The enormous amount of seeds  you mention in some samples leaves  one wondering how there is any good  seed left. -/lany farmers carelessly  sow grain uncleaned, or only just  run it once ihrough an old useless  fanner; if they would take the  -trouble to clean the grain and above  jill plow the land properly and bury  ���������the weed plants, the 100,000 tons  you mention would soon dwindle,  and in no other way can this be  .done. On small areas, cattle turned  on the stubble will clean off a great  .quantity of weeds, but in large areas  out in the west none are kept"  ���������  __^___  Elevator For Fish  To enable migratory fish to pass  guch barriers as waterfalls and dams  when ascending a river to spawn, the  ��������� Canadian commissioner of fisheries  .has developed an elevator,which is apparently practicable."'

The emperor's personal influence was  once solicited in behalf of a young officer who von Tirpitz had disciplined.  "You'll have' to get along with him as  well as you can," said'the unsympathetic emperor, "that's what I have to  do." The story illustrates the importance of-the grand admiral as a factor  in the imperial policy no less than the  masterful temper of the man. He it  was who created and maintained the  modern navy of Germany, not William II. To the man in the street  Von Tirpitz ia known chiefly as the  organizer of , "submarine' warfare,"  the, advocate of "frightfulness" on  the sea. The notoriety has given him  a bad name, which doubtless he richly  deserves.  To chose who are familiar with his  remarkable career, the Yetirement  of Von Tirpitz is the fall of a  mighty pillar of the empire. He has  been as great in naval affairs as  Bismarck was in diplomacy. When  the duel in dreadnought building with  England began the German people  were not interested in the navy. It  was necessary for the admiral to  educate them, which he did with a  publicity bureau the like of which  has never been known in any other  country. Bu������~ that was ouly half the  battle. To get the Reichstag to adopt  a naval ' programme that contemplated rivalry with England was an almost superhuman task, and then  there was the voting of 'appropriations in lean as well as fat years,  with the army clamoring for increase and new equipment. The  preamble to the naval law of* 1900  declared that "Germany must have  a fleet of such strength that a. war  even against the mightiest naval  power would involve such risks as  to threaten the supremacy, of that  power."���������New York Sun.   .  Varieties of Alfalfa  Some Alfalfa    Experiments    Made in.  North Dakota  Twenty-two different kinds of alfalfa have been experimented with on  the high plains of the western part of  North Dakota. These included  strains from Europe; Asia and South  and North America Parts of these  experiments were conducted during  the winter of 1906-7, one of the severest the western States has ever experienced.  In spite of the persistently low temperature of the winter, some alfalfa  lived through on all plats, including  even the very tender Peruvian variety, which killed out badly that winter as far south as the Panhandle of  Texas, and again during the mild winter of 1908-9 as far south as Stock-  'ton, Kansas. This extraordinary re-  .suit'in Dakota was due -tov-the character of the weather. Autumn drought  and the i gradual approach of cold  weather hardened the tissues, of the  plants, enforcing gradual and perfect  dormancy. A protective 'covering of  snow came in December and remained until nearly the end of March. To  these factors and the gradual return  of spring was due the fact that a percentage of all strains came safely  through  the winter.  The important point, however, is  that Grimm alfalfa and two Turkestan  strains sustained no loss whatever.  There can be little doubt that Grimm  and the Ontario variegated originally  came from the same source, near the  borders of Germany and Russia, and  are, in fact, identical in origin. They  are both alike hardy and suited to Ontario   conditions.���������Toronto   Globe.

Rev. R. G. Scott of Saskatchewan  tells us that when all the bars had  been closed, the government opened  twenty-three liquor stores for those  who thought they could not do without alcohol. Provision ha*d been made  that these stores could be closed or  others opened, according to the wish  of the people, at the municipal elections in November. The entire province had been divided into liquor districts. Voting took place in seven  districts, in three of which liquor  stores" had already been established,  and in four other districts an attempt  was made to open new stores. In  every district the result was decisively in favor of total abstinence. In the  three districts where government  stores had been in operation, they  wore all wiped out by a vote of about  two and a half to one. In the four  districts wh'ere an effort was being  made to open stores all the attempts  failed by a vote of about the same  relative proportions.'  Particular interest had been attached to our dis-rict, as the population  was largely foreign. The presence of  large colonies of Galicians, French,  Germans and Hungarians was thought  to be a strong force to overcome.  These people had always been accustomed to use, liquor whenever they  had the opportunity. \Every wedding  and every holiday was celebrated with  plenty of liquor. Few l>were abstainers and none too poor to procure d.  There was almost no organization, so  that what temperance work was done,,  was in most cases by individuals, but  the result wi    very encouraging.  A foreigner told me that he had always been a drinker and- that if a  vote had been taken when the bars  were first closed there would have  been many liquor stores open. However, he thought the people had found  out in four months that they got  along very well without it and had  more money than they ever had before. He said that few wanted' the  stores opened now.  A young Frenchman who has a family and is a good worker, said to me,  "The bar got me a good many times.  I spent a lot of money and lost a lot  of time.    I am glad tho bar is gone  and we don't want the thing back  again.-' In the rural municipality of  Fish ^Oreek where the population is  almost entirely Galician, it was  thought tlie people would vote strongly for a liquor store, but it went dry  b- more than two to one. Wakaw village, where we have a very mixed  population, went dry by 47 to 16. What  has been done in such a district can  surely be done in any place in Can-  r ada.  I Coming to Manitoba, we find the foreigners quite as hostile to the liquor  traffic- In-Winnipeg-alone there were  five Ruthenian,* three 'Scandinavian,  and three Icelandic papers that would  not even print a liquor advertisement. Perhaps that will take soim  of the conceit out of us, and let us see  that the foreigner has more brains  than we gave him credi. for. Let as  wake up and press forward.���������H. Ar-  nott, M.C.P.S.  What John A. Said  Because of a misquotation, a characteristic story of one of the greatest  men Canada ever had, has been recalled to memory. The misquotation  made Sir John Macdonald say, 'T want  friends to stand by me when I am  wrong or mistaken; anybody will  stand by you when you are on the top  wave of success." That is too much  like a cry for help to be the language  of Sir John. Here is the whole story:  A new member of parliament, desirous of impressing the Dominion maker with his virtue and his importance, said: "I will stand by you, sir,  when you are right." "Oh," replied  the premier, "the Grits will do that;  what I want is a man who will stand  by ma when I am wrong." Sir John  was just human enough to be wrong  at times, and honest enough to admit  it. But he objected to the judgment  of the self-righteous. ��������� Christian  Science Monitor.

More" Aid Wanted For Belgium"  The Belgian relief committee at Ottawa is about to receive a further appeal for funds from Canada.

More than one million of the total  received came from Australia and  New Zealand. All money from Canada will be spent entirely In buying  and supplying food to tho distressed  Belgian people.

Unattached Officers  May Become Privates  Opportunity to Officers Without Command to  Prove   Their  Loyalty  Unattached officers with no prospect of attachment, will have an opportunity for service. This opportunity may lower their pride, but will  prove tneir loyalty. In effect, a regulation has been passed by commanders of the various divisions asking unattached officers to enlist as privates.  Special consideration will be extended, and they will be promoted to non-  coms, at the earliest opportunity.  They ,may even regain their rank in  time.  The problem of the unattached officers has been a thorn in the side ~f  military progress since the early  months after the outbreak of the war.  It is also the greatest barrier to recruiting. The commanders of the  various units in the third division will  shortly receive a letter from headquarters asking that the above procedure be adopted.  Throughout Canada in every city  and small town there are countiess  officers who have no prospect of becoming affiliated with any regiments.  Winnipeg is seething with young  subalterns. Toronto is howling protests daily to the militia authorities.  Toronto is the best recruiting ground  in the Dominion at that Ottawa is  fully alive to the ridiculousness of the  condition, though the burden of ..the  unattached is borne more by Kingston, the third divisional headquarters.  Lt.-Col. McLean of the 207th, who  is in Montreal-, was . one of the first  to place the young officer on the taboo list. There are a few young subs  in the 207th. Their physical fitness,  athletic prowess and general excellence, however, merited their attachment. The majority are old experienced officers. In fact there are as  many returned. war veterans in this  battalion both officers and privates. .  The shortage of experienced officers is being felt largely by the batteries in the course of instruction.  Moulding artillery officers is a long  and arduous process. It has been  found that many inexperienced officers have to be attached because they  are t/he  only ones   eligible.  In asking officers to voluntarily reduce themselves in rank the authorities are simply giving the boys a  chance to prove their loyalty.  Don't Waste Time Doctonng Sick Hens  The farm poultryman has little  time or inclination to doctor sick  fowls and even large exclusive  pouitrymen have little success in  treating fowls that are really sick.  Prevention of disease may be accomplished in a satisfactory manner, but the treatment of disease  in fowls once well established is  very disappointing. Cleanliness is  the preventive.  What la the matter with the  movies? Their course of development  makes many shudder at the prediction  that the dramatic performance of the  future will be found too costly for any  purpose except the making of films.  The absence of the spoken word forces  the necessity of exaggeration in many  features. This is seen in the coarseness of the comedy presented. Grotesque buffoonery and violent horseplay predominate The board of censors for the state of Pennsylvania  finds that 20 per cent .of the films  examined are of this class and present these objectionable features. The  need of appealing to the child mind  may also make for exaggerations that  are  stupid and weakly startling.  The juvenile audience is a new feature, and while it is considered from  the amusement standpoint in some of  the burlesque scenes, it is generally  ignored, from a broad educational and  moral standpoint, in the fervid melodramas. These make1 up 75 per cent  of the films examined by the Pennsylvania state board of censors, whose  systematic classification is certainly  enlightening Lurid scenes of murder,  arson, burglary, highway robbery,  theft, assault, train wrecking, and  other crimes of violence make up the  bulk of what is presented for popular  entertainment. Defectively balanced  minds are moved not by the logic hid  away in the impossible scenes, but by  the law of suggestion working through  them. The protest against censorship  to a child standard or to an unbalanced mind standard is familiar, but the  course pf-movie development is largely a response to the demands of the  unbalanced and the child mind. The*  shock of wild exaggeration is needed  to arouse excitement or hold a jaded  interest.  The amazing growth of the movies  imposes the necessity of another  course of development toward general  recognition. The five per ceut. of  films found normal and wholesome,  varied in their appeal, show that a  start can be made toward better conditions. Public indifference and lack  of discernment are largely due to the.  fact that to many the movie is still  only a great curiosity. So great is the  wonder at scenes being depicted at  all that sufficient thought is not be-  stow,ed on their nature, lessons and  influence. This attitude will soon pass,  and a critical and/ disc rning public  will be found effectively supplementing and completing the work of official censorship.���������Toronto Globe.  Soldiering in India  Cheerfully   Fight   Their   Turkish   Co-  Religionists  "The Indians have not been fooled  by the, German propaganda, and India is the safest place in the world,"  is the'message from Sultan Mohammed Aga Khan, spiritual head of the  millions of Islamier Moslems, as direct descendant of Mohammed, and  one, of the most influential of Mohammedans whose territory to England  has just been rewarded by a salute of  11 guns and the rank of first class  chief of the Bombay presidency. His  highness, recently interviewed in  Paris, said:  "People attach overmuch importance to reports of Indian sedition  which is really due to an insignificant  handful of agitators.

My people cheerfully fight their Turkish co-religionists in the Mesopotamia  or Gallipoli just as fellow Christians  kill each other in France.

Tame a Silk Worm  And Reap Results  Possibilities of a Great Trade in the  Last   Foe   Colony  In view of the progress of Gener.il  Smuts' campaign in German East  Africa, the last of the German colonies, attention is being given by  British manufacturers and merchants  to the economic possibilities of that  colony. In particular, the president  of the silk association has just directed attention to the wild silk of the  Anaphe silkworm, and has suggested  that when German East Africa  changes hands this raw silk will afford a good opportunity for British  silk manufacturer"!  The Anaphe silkworm occurs, as a  matter of fact, in many parts of East,  West and South Africa, and samples  of the silk from Uganda were examined some years ago at the Imperial  Institute, which introduced -the product to the notice of leading silk  manufacturers in this country.  At that time it was doubtful wheth-  the price British manufacturers could  offer would pay the cost of collection  of the scattered nests of cocoons. The  Imperial Institute accordingly suggested that the government entomologist in Uganda should be asked to investigate the possibilities of "domesticating" the wild Anaphne and cultivating it in plantations of the trees  on'which it feeds, so as to reduce the  cost This^ has now been found quite  practicable. A new and cheap raw  material for the spun silk industry  would be of such importance that it is  to be hoped energy anc" capital will be  forthcoming for the development of  this industry in Uganda, whence a certain amount of the silk is already being exported, and aiso in other British African colonies.

Uncle Sam's Shells  Allies  Dangerous Guests  Brave Frenchman Who Was Executed  by Germans  For Assisting  His  Countrymen  In a general army order, General  Joffre brings to the knowledge of  France the, heroic behavior of Ca-  mille Eugene Jacquet, a tradesman  of Lille.  Condemned to capital punishment  by the Germans and executed in the  Lille Citadel on September 22, 1915,  for" having harbored, hidden, and  given help to French soldiers and  having helped them to escape, he  died as a hero unbandaged, crying  "Vive la France! Vive la Repub-  lique!"  For months this middle-aged wine  merchant, acting merely on the dictates of duty, devoted himself to 'establishing an "underground railway"  for many officers and men who succeeded in hiding in cellars when  Lille surrendered iu October, 1914. -  Day and night, M. Jacquet, according to the Matin, was aided by his  daughter. For weeks he fed his  dangerous guests, who, as occasion  arose, were guided by a Belgian professional smuggler across Belgium  and reached France via England.  Among the extraordinary, exploits  of this heroic man was the saving of  a flight-lieutenant, who on March 11,  with two other airmen, dropped  bombs on the German wireless station at Lille. Two machines got  back safely to their lines, but one  was forced to come down at the  gates of Lille. When German motor  mitrailleuses reached the spot the  machine was in riames, but no trace  could be found of the airmen. A battalion of infantry searched the countryside for miles around without  discovering him.  It was 5.30 p.m. when the airman  was forced down, and in spite of the  swarm of German patrols looking  for him by 11 o'clock that night he  was drinking tea at the Jacquet  house.  For a fortnight the officer regained in the house, and on March 28  he s-tartoJ off. accompanied by Mile.  Jacquet and the Belgian smuggler,  for the frontier. When leaving his  guide the officer asid: "I owe you a  call; I hope to see you again soon."  True to his promise in less than a  month, on April 22, he flew over  Lille and dropped the following message:   "Liuetenant     presents   his  respects to the commander of the  German forces in Lillo and regrets not  having been able to make his acquaintance during his pleasant stay in  the neighboruood."  The officer was accidentally killed in August last, but his constant  flights over Lille and the story of  his escape will make him live long  in the memory of the townspeople.���������  London Times.  Kuropatkin's Return  That Kuropatkin should now be restored to favor and entrusted with  high and responsible commands means  either that Russia is desperately in  leed of military talent or that Kuropatkin was a victim of bureaucratic  persecution and injustice after the  war with Japan. He is now to be put  to the test again, but he will lead an  army, not a mob, and his subordinates  will be competent and zealous. There  was never any doubt of Kuropatkin's  theoretical knowledge of war, and in  the Turkish campaign he had distinguished himself as Skobeleff's chief of  staff. In Turkestan and Samarkand  he added to his reputation. At thirty-  four he was a major-general and talked of as the successor of Skoheleff.

Not    Dependent  on  U.S.  Supplies of Explosives  Fc^  Despite the fact    that    the.United'  '  States   is   daily   sending   two   million  dollars worth or war materials acros������    ,  the  Atlantic, that country's contribu- ,'  tion  to the  munition supplies  of"th*������  '  allies is but "a drop, in the- bucket." t  Some  time  ago a semi-official  statement was made to the effect that th*������  United  States  furnished  less  than 2  per' cent.     Since     then     other   estl-   ���������>  mates  have   been  made   which  plac������  the figure at nearly 5 per cent. Even'  accepting the latter figure as the correct one, it is  evident that, the con- t  tributions niadS by the United States  are a very, very small proportion 'ot  the     total   number   of   shells   being  shipped to the front.  We have generally been led to be- ���������  lieve   that  the  Krupp factory  at  Es������   ,  sen  was    the largest munition  plant .  in the world.    Today the steel work*  alone     of     Sheffield   are     infinitely,  greater than the whole of the Kn*pr>  plant.    Already  upwards   of  twenty-  five million  dollars have  been  speat  in new  munition plants in. Sheffield,  and   with   the  additions     now   under  way,   fifty   million   dollars   worth of  new  plants   will .shortly    be  turning    i  out explosives from this one city. Upwards of 12,000 men are employed in,  shell   making  in   that  city,   while   a  number  equally large te   engaged, in  the  manufacture of-.cannon.

When to > these  countries   was   aaded   the" output* ot   -  Italy and  whatever Belgium'may ba*  abl*3 to do, the conclusion "reached is  that    while   the  supplies   from     the  United States are'very welcome, and  will help  in  smothering the German  guns,    the  allies t are : in no' way de-  pendent upon Uncle  Sam  for    their ?r  supplies   of   high   explosives. ^ v   >  Holland as a War Factor,  ���������-������������������     -- -. ,  . * (- ?  Has Only a Small Army, but Men Aro  Well   Trained \ '-* ,  Apart from aiding the allies by giving opportunities to 'them to attack  Germany on an open flank, Holland ,  probably could be of but 'little fighting value were she to enter the European struggle in, these days when  armies are numbered in the millions  and dreadnoughts and battle cruisers  in the hundreds. The peace strength  of the active Dutch army is 47,660.  For some months past, however, the'  army has been up to war strength,  and this totals about 150,000. These  men are all, however, well trained, because of the compulsory system of  military service which exists. The  Dutch artillery is armed with Krupp  guns.  The Dutch navy consists of 7 battleships, 4 cruisers, 40 torpedo boats, six   '  submarines and a number of gunboats"  for coast defence. In addition to these  there  are at least eight  * detsroyers.  Four more  vere being built' in Germany when war broke out, but "thesa -  were taken sv-i by the Germans. Tho.

Holland  is     bo.-dered on the .south  by Belgium and on the east* by Gei>   ;  many. On the former side the country -  is quite level; on the latter more hil-    ���������  ly; the land frontier is open all round.

Amsterdam  itself is well fortified, the possibility  of inundations  there precluding    any  successful attack.   The coast defences  are in  good orcer.

''���������'������������������  An Echo From Mons  The testimony of a nurse who had  been brought into contact with one of  the soldiers from the battle of Mons  was alluded to recently by a preacher  in a suburban pulpit In the" course  of her ministrations to her patient,  said the speaker, she mentioned, the  name of the Almighty, adding, as an  afterthought, "but perhaps, like some  of the other men, you don't believe in  God?"  "I used not to do so," was the quiet  reply, "but Mons changed all that;"  and the nurse felt, as she listened to  the plain, unvarnished words of the  young fellow, how intensely he felt  the reality of his experience. He  and some other men were in a chalkpit and they knew that the German  cavalry were approaching. Suddenly  he looked up, attracted by the bright  light around the edge of the-pit, and  saw distinctly the groups of guardian  angels. The horses of the enemy saw  them, too, and turned round, refused  to advance, and ultimately rushed  back beyond the control of their riders. This lull gave ' "the boys" a  chance of escape; and, added the  soldier earnestly, "I wasn't the only  one that saw them, Sister, and I dont  think any of us can feel just the same  after."���������Nursing Mirror,  A spendthrift is a person who save������  [his money for a rainy day, and thea  prays for rain.  ��������� *. iV'-i-j.  >t   , ���������,Va>-s*������ *  .

Telephone  receivers, connected with those disks  lead to the ears of the officers, and  the approach of a ship is heard with  unimst likeable   definitcnoss.  As the ship approaches the noise  becomes louder in one ear or the  other.  When the submarine commander  hears an equally loud noise in each  ear he knows that the ship is straight  ahead.  "Fire!" he orders, and the torpedo  shoots towards tho surface, at a carefully calculated angle, hitting the s'.ip  well below tho water line.  The sinking of Dutch, Norwegian  and Swedish ships would be readily  explained if the Swiss reports are true.  The submarine commander, guided to  his prey by sound alone, would have  rro way'of fixing the nationality of the  ship attacked.  Need for Home Production  Trade Relations Between United States  and   British Columbia on wrong  Side of Ledger'  Statistics recently published reveal  a regrettable situation regarding trade  relationship between British Columbia  and the United States. During Hie  month of March there was shipped  lo British Columbia from ihe United  States thioncth the port of Seattle,  produce valued at over $3,000,000,  while the American c-itv received only  about (1500,000 worth of goods from  British Columbia. Of the material exported from Canada a very large ,'jart  j? made up of copper' for refinru.,'.  purer and coal, while the Canadian  l".revince receives heavy shiprner.'s  , of agricultural produce. which it  might grow itself with equal facility.  Apples, beans, butter', cheese, u.'jgs,  dried fruit, rrreat, wheat ad vegetables  are among the articles which that pro-  vice should be able to export and not  have to  import.  That something is radically wrong  in either the production or the marketing or agricultural produce irr the  western province is evident. It is  with the object of i in proving ihesc  conditions that the Domestic Food  Products Committee, inaugurated by  the Victoria Board of Trade, is working.  Mr. A. D. Peterson, president of  the B. C. Stockbreeders' Association,  speaking at Victoria said:  "'During the war, it is the duly of  those who remain at homo to do  everything in their power to increase  the yield of the fields, flocks and  herds. By so doing, those of us who  must remain at-home can serve our  country just as loyally as by serving  in the trenches. Even suppose this  might entail loss, we should be willing to sacrifice some of our profit  when others are going to the front  and sacrificing their lives for the  Empire."  The last year- has been marked by  mi increasing interest in mixed farming; in British Columbia. This is  particularly true of some districts  that previously had been looked -upon  as almost exclusive fruit lands.  Creameries have been built at Grand  Forks,' Kelowna and Salmon Arm,  and all are reporting satisfactory results. In the district of Kelowna  alone, fourteen silos were built during 1915.  Along he line of the Grand Trunk  Pacific, much live stock is being introduced, and the foundation is being  laid for more or Toss mixed farming  communities. In many of the newer  localities advantage has been taken  of the Dominion and Provincial  .schemes for supplying pure-bred sires  This stimulates an interest for more,  its well as bettor live stock.  The sheep   industry has been    par-  i-jji'arly favored during the year l'n.-'t  j)JTsed.    Mutton  and  wool  have commanded   excellent   prices,  while   the  outlook   for   the   immediate   future   is  promising.      From   all     parts   of   (lie  Province there arc inquiries for bleeding stock, and if. is only the scarcity of  such   .stock  Ihaf,   has   pi evented   more  rapid   development,     in   many   districts  owners of sheep   have  suffered,  considerable loss from the ravages of  panthers, coyotes, and especially dogs,  and it might, ba well for this convention   to   consider   the   advisability   of  asking the Government l<> pass a. law-  requiring   (hut   all   dogs   be   licensed.  By this means a great many  useless  curs would  be got rid off.  Owing to the high prices for grain  which prevailed a year ago. the bog  industry suffered a set-back. It is  probable .that the siluafion will last  until the war is over, so any immediate removal of the industry can hardly  he expected. But even under present  conditions "the hog con be raised quite  profitably by those who can provide  suitable pasture to supplement the  grain ration.  While   it   is   true   that   certain   sections   of   country     are     particularly  suited  to  the production  of one   par-  ticular crop,    it is equally true    that,  carried on even in these communities !  to supply local needs.

The Secretary  said:  '"Instead of showing, under the < n-  couragenrent of a great European war,  any desire to revolt, the people of  India have never been more loyal  to tho British Umpire than today. In  this connection 1 would like to i-ay  that loyalty in India has its own  special color* in the ���������'form of- a. personal devotion to the King-Emperor  which I do not think it possible to  exaggerate.  "The personal aspect of loyalty appeals to them perhaps more strongly  than the western mind can conceive.  There aro striking manifestations of  this on the King's visits to the front.  Nothing could exceed the profound  satisfaction ' expressed .by Indian officers and soldiers in having actually  come face to face with their ruler.  "I .have seen Ibis ..myself 'when 1  have had the honor of accompanying  the Kin" in visits to the Indian Hospitals. When asked what impressed  them most, the reply was always the  same. 'We have seen the King-Emperor.' All lire sufferings and trials  they had undergone were as nothing.  Nothing else counted. This devotion  to : the ruler is actually a part of  their religion.  "Whatever agitation there- may be  in India for a greater- share rrr the  government, there is certainly no lack  of appreciation of the advantage of  the British system of colonial government over the German.  "As to the military assistance given  by the Indians, I need mention only  two facts, as their eff*ts on all fronts  are so well known. The first is the  number of military honors won by  the   Indians.  "Before this war the highest military honor, the Victoria Cross, was  not open to the Indian army, but since  this iiile was abrogated, five V. C.'s  and twenty-five Military Crosses have  been won by Indian soldiers. The  second is just one instance of their  gallantry  in  action.  "In Gallipoli the HI!) Sikhs went  into action with fifteen British officers, fourteen Indian officers and fil'l  rank and frle. The next day there  were three British officers ..three Indian officers- and 134 rank and file.  I do not think you could ask more of  any army than that it should face  'and'make sacrifices of this kind."

War and the  Price of Wheat  In  All    Modern    Wars    the     Price  of  Wheat Has Been  High  The highest average price of British  wheat during the last century and a  quarter is quoted as being $3.80 per  bn-ihel, this being the price obtained  in J812, during the European wars and  uiir war with the United States. In all  modern wars the price of wheat has  been relatively high and has fluctuated greatly, hi many cases the high  level price's hits continued for tome  time filler the declaration of peace.  The course of prices during the present conflict seems to confirm this general tendency.  During the Kapo'.eomc wars the  price of wheat in Europe fluctuated  between W.W and ."F1 .SO. In 18*22 it had  fallen to $1.37. In 1625 it, was quoted  at $2.07, and in 1835 at $1\]9. The  price now kept fairly steady until 1&41,  (he year of the potato famine in Ire  land when it rose to 42.13. In. 1840  the repeal of the corn law became effective and there was a decline gradually c until 15:51 $J.17 was reached. In  J853 began the Crimean' war which  onded in JS56. During this period  the prices aura in rose, reaching in the  last year of' ihe war $2.10. Dunne  the Italian war of J859 and the American civil war, J8GI ��������� 05 thee price remained fairly sfeadv being in ihe  last year of the war'$1.27 per bushel.  The last very high priced wheat was  in J876 and "jS77 coincident with the  Turko-Siberian war and the Balkan  wars. However, the prices were comparatively low lo what they were in  the early part of the century, being  only ,i������'I.7,*j us compared with $3.86 during the former.neriod. Tn 1S80 wheat  was selling at '$0.94 per bushel and  only went over the dollar mark upon  tlueo occasions until the present time.  These were: in 1S9I. $1.13; in 1803.  $1.03, and in 100!). $1.13. fn injf, it.  rose to $1.01. which was the highest  price asked since JS77.

Scarcity of Labor is Acute  Result Will  Be   Invention of New Machinery,  a  Leader Asserts  I was talking labor with a man  whose official "position makes him  speak for one ot the half dozen largest  bodies of ���������workmen in the world.  "The scarcity of laboring people today, said he, "is certain to bring about  a great surplus of labor a little while  in the future, because necessity will  surely compel corporations to invent  machines to take the place of men."  Then he illustrated, what lie meant  by telling how steel rails used to lie  rolled and how they  are rolled today.  Once two score men were necessary  to feed the huge lump of raw steel  into the rolls and keep drawing it out  and feeding it back until finally the  rail emerged complete.  Now a machine unattended does the  whole thing. Tlie sewing machine in  similar fashion put out of work hundreds of .seamstresses. The mowing  machine and flic self binding reaper  drove thousands of farm hands from  hay and wheat lields.  1. know that in three hours a handful ol dock hands can load 12,000 of  iron ore upon a hike steamer where  once a small army of men couldn't do  it- in a day.

"He doesn't seem to nave any  brains."  "Brains! Why, that fellow would  search for eggs in a eul;oo clock."  Farm Management  Thoroughness  of Work  is  One  of The  Cardinal   Principles of the  Successful  Farmer  Wc once heard an excellent farmer  say:  "It takes an -able, brainy man to  so lay out farm work and follow it up  as to get the best possible results. We  are all too much smitten with the idea  that our profit comes from the amount  of work half done rather than the  amount well done. When I was a boy  hoeing corn, my father used to tell  me that the best hoed hill brought.,the,  largest yield and the best corn. Rushing along and hoeing a lot of hills  poorly, he said, was no. way to make  money growing corn. 1 "think that  principle applies in all of our farm  work. The farm where the work is  most thoroughly clone, and care taken  not to lay out more work than can be  well done, is the one 1 have noticed  that makes the most clear profit."  We think our i-armer mend was  right on general principles in his idea  that it takes marked ability to Jay  out and practice thoroughness of work  on the farm. Three thing's stand in  the  way:  1. A lack of broaa intelligence and  judgment on the part of the farmer. _  We  all  know that there  are but few j  such    farmers    compared     with    tho  whole,  2. The constant hazard and uncertainty   of   the   weather.  3. The scarcity of good farm help  and its  high  expense.  But these three difficulties do not  change the logic of the situation. It  remains just the same that thorough,  comprehensive judgment and practice  in the doing of our farm work pays  the best. I-lalf-hoeing tlie hills of  corn in order to hoc more than we  can hoe well, don't pay. Lack of thoroughness ia tho curse of farming at  any and all times.  We are all poisoned with the old  notion of turning off a lot of half  finished work; keeping a, lot of poor  cows rather than a less numbt-r of  good ones; frying to till more acres  than we can plow and till well. Of  course, help will always be scarce and  expensive on such a farm for there  is laid out twice as much work as can  be done with the help the farmer  thinks he caii afford to keep. There'  are any number of three and four men  farms being run with two men. Under such conditions how can they  pay the profit they should pay?  When wo get down good and hard  to tho idea, of doing our farm work  belter than be have been doing; keeping only such cows as can do good  work; taking the best care possible  of our products when we have been  lo the expense of raising them; then  we will find that he have a good deal  more .money with which, to employ  expensive help and make needed, improvements. The' channel through  which good profits come on the farm  is the .most thorough efficiency possible. As we lower efficiency wc lower profit, and there wc are. Half-"  done work never- has paid and never  will. To avoid this trouble we must  enlarge our vision, our ability, our intelligence. That's the only way to  better success.

Report  of a  Rich   Discovery of! Oil  in  The  Far North.  We have long known something  about the riches of Alaska in gold,  copper, coal, timber and other minerals and products of lire ground nnd  of the surrounding seas, including furs  and fishes; also that there are large  tracts Of arable lands upon which  vegetables, fruits and cor-.������������������Is may bo  grown in abundance. And now we aro  told that in the far north of that country, within the Arctic circle, there is  a great wealth in oil awaiting development, according to statements oi a  discovery made by Eskimos and confirmed by W. B. Van Valin of the  United States Bureau of Education.  The native discoverers found four  springs of thick oil close together and  maintaining a Jake of thick, green oil  of the consistency of vaseline, into  which ducks and geese occasionally  plunged from a considerable height,,  mistaking the substance for water,  and of course, perishing there. These  Eskimos were in inter ignorance of  the nature of their find, nnd so greatly puzzled that thev made ������i rc:iu!*cr  express trip, 450 miles lo the south, to  the settlement called Wainwright, to  consult iho tea'ehor of whom ihey ! ad  heard , arrd who it seems was so much  impressed by their story that he made  the trip back with them over the snow  and frozen tundra *I50 miles to a point  whose location he has not yet disclosed. There he found tin's great lake  ot oil constantly fed hy four springs,  pumping away under pn.*-suiv: of natural gas. lie made'careful investigation and surveys and staked 'iff his-  claims,"'and provided with samples of  the liquid, went "back to Wainwright  arrd thence to Nome and finally to  Seattle.  There is nothing to fell us a'hint ot  the location of this richness in oil, except that it is in. the far northwest,  north of the Arctic circle, and not far  from navigable waters of the Arctic  Ocean or some river tributary to  it   ,  Continue Splendid Co-operatiori  'The ideal of course, would be for the  allies fo adopt the policy of free trade  among themselves, '.caving the rest of  the world to follow the example at its  leisure. That would mark the greatest  advance ever made, in world relationships and would be ihe noblest fruit  of the war. We hope, that heroic expedient will be discussed at the conference. But in thb absence of such  an achievement, there arc many  things to be done, 'llic allies at the  present time arc pooling their resources in an unprecedented measure.  \Yc are working together as one firm,  France concentrating on this form of  production, England on that.

It was Channing who said: "As cne  sets himself against people or things,  they all seem to him correspondingly  belligerent. Nothing is more destructive than-a continual resistant or' pessimistic spirit." The lesson of this is  that we should never be so sure we  are right as to cause us to despise  the person with whom we disagree, lor  then he will despise us, and that will  be a great deal worse than disagreeing.  The surest sign of a man being right  is his open-mindedness and his warmheartedness, and his making a friend  of the person with whom ho disagrcss.  A noble opinion is never violent.

A New Theory is to be Tested to Produce   Rain  Artificially  Events indicate that in one respect,  at any rate scientific investigators are  hopeful of assuming control, to a  greater or a lesser extent, of the time-  honored processes of nature. Many  attempts have been made from.time to  time, in the way of artificial production of rain, but thus far without success. A practical test of a newly discovered process, is about to be made  in Australia, from which more encouraging results are anticipated. The  experiments will be financed by the  Government of New South Wales, and  will be carried out by J. G. Balsillie,  who for four years, has boon carrying  on researches''along specific lines. Experiments in his laboratory has demonstrated that if a room be filled  with steam, the discharge of high tension direct current electricity, together  with a simultaneous discharge from a  powerful Rontgen ray tube Jcauses the  whole of the air to be cleared of steam  in one arrd one-half seconds, the floor  of the. room being consequently covered with large drops of-water.  In puttinrr these theories to practical test'in"the great out-of-doors, a  captive baloon, coated with metallic  paint, Will be used, from which to  discharge electricity into the atmosphere, at a height of from 6,000 to  7,000 feet, and it is hoped that this  ..i.i cause the formation of a sufficient  '������������������������������������llv-j* of electrified particles to provide'nuclei, upon which the moisture  of tho clouds may condense, in the  form of. rain. Once-the theory has  been demonstrated in a single instance, the problem would resolve itself into that of establishing a sufficient number of stations, to produce  am- result that .might be desired. ���������  Has  Keep  house.

Naverre,    the   French    Aviator,  Established   a   Reputation  Naverre is one of tho.national names  of France and a wholesome terror to  the aviatoi'3 of Germany. A few weeks .  ago he brought down three machines j  of the enemy in the clouds above the  sectors occupied by the Huns, in the  Verdun battle area. That made eight  in all since he took to flying a lew  months   after   the   war   began.  When he had finished his triple  victory nt Verdun, he complained of  the breakfast that was given him,  cursed his fate that lie had not  wrought havoc upon four of the German air craft, and uttered a dissent  against having to go to bed. Which  simply means that .Naverre has a  temperament. He can be angry, too,  when out of sight hi the heavens.  His observer on one occasion made  him intensely wroth. When only  about a hundred feet away from a  German machine his companion fired  at the aeroplane, and missed, Naverre  immediately flew home, .descended  and opened a fire ol vituperation upon his-.unfortunate second. "Give me  a chance," said the observer, "and I  will re-establish myself in your estimation." Naverre at first reluctantly  and then generously consented. The  chance came in two* clays after, when  sailing through space Naverre spotted  an aviatik. Whirling up into the sky  to get a proper height, ho "peaked  himself," hi-'-the flying language. That  is, he made a nose-on charge.  This time the observer's nerve stood  the test. He took the fire of the German without a quiver. When he was  within 30 metres���������Naverre'.s favorite  fete���������he opened upon the enemy. Both  Germans were wounded and the en-  gino was shot full of holes.

"So you were at Jack and Nellie's  wedding, were you? - How did lack  look during the ceremony?''  >��������� "He. looked awfully'solemn. But L  suppose that was only natural,' seeing  that he was ringing hie own Nell.''  . Out in Wisconsin ihe game warden,  in making his roun.ru, came upon a  youthful fisherman. To make sure  that the boy was not disobeying the  bass-fishing law, the warden took hii-  string of fish out of the water and.  found only catfish, perch and suckers  on  the  line.  :A few feet farther down the stream,  however, he found n. large black bass  wiggling on a string weighted down  with a stone. Naturally, the warden  made inquiry of tlu boy as to what  he was doing with that fish.  "VVell, you see," explained the lad,  "he's been taking my bait all the  morning, and so 1 just tied him up  there until I get through "fishing."'  No March on Berlin  Germany has, we believe, shot her  bolt on land whatever she may do by  piracy in the effort to open the door  of the seas. But that docs not mean  that she is not still a formidable foe.  Put upon the defensive her power of  resistance will be still little short of  her-maximum and no one at this stage  of.the war is likely to cultivate the old  dreams of a march on Berlin.

Some Canadians were recently digging a new line of trenches behind  their line in France, writes an officer,  when a jar was found in which were  200 silver crowns. The coins, which  were in fine state of preservation, bore  dates between 1745 and 1747-���������a period  in which heavy fighting was taking  place over the same ground in Flanders. Each member of he working  party was given one of the coins as a  souvenir.  "In this war with Germany, what  do you propose doing?"  "The Government, if I could get  a big supply contract."  Pat was very fond ol stiong tea. He  always praised a housekeeper according to the strength of the tea she  made. Recently the woman of the  house where Pat worked was pouring  out the tea for his breakfast. It was  coming out very slowly ,and tho good  woman asked Pat to excuse the teapot ,as it had a bad spout. Pat (not  liking the look of tho tea) said sadly:  "Oh, begorrah, ma'am, don't blame  the taypot, because anything weak  must go-- aisy."  He serves a bad master who serves  the multitude.���������Ex.  Everything is good iri its place. The bile, which, under certain conditions, causes so much distress, is of the greatest value as an antiseptic and  cathartic when it is properly handled by the liver.  The chief function of the liver seeins to be the filtering of bile from the  blood, -where it-acts as a poison, and pouring it into the intestines, where it  hastens the course of the food mass through the alimentary canal, and by  its antiseptic influence prevents fermentation'of the food. '  Whoa, you -suffer from biliousness and indigestion and have a coated tongue, bitter  taste in the mouth, headaches and loss of appetite,' you "will do well to- look' to the condition of the liver., Other symptoms are "wind on the stomach, "which causes belching, and  the formation of gas, which gives rise to dizziness and pains about the heart.' ���������    '.  Because the liver has failed, the food in tho alimentary canal is fermenting instead  of being digested, looseness and constipation of the bowels alternate, the "whole digestive system is thrown out of order and the blood is poisoned.  By immediately awakening the action of the liver and bowels, Dr.. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pills affords relief for this condition most promptly. On this account they are  generally recognized &a the most effective cure for biliousness, liver complaint, indigestion, constipation^and the pains and aches which arise from poisons in the blood.

" He who does me once, shame on him;  He who does me twice, shame on me."  With gold, copper, zinc, coal,  lime, fruit, vegetables, cattle  and horses as products the  Similkameen should be one of  the most prosperous districts in  British Columbia.  The rural candidates have  gone into training for the fall  campaign. It may safely be  asserted, "without fear of successful contradiction," that some  of them are as sp ell-binderish  as baled-hay.  There will be some reconstructing "after the war," say  the wise party heeelers. In the  words of Mr. Dooley, "there will  thot," and it's up to the politicians to so conduct themselves  that it will not be necessary for  the reconstruction to take the  form of a revolution.  In the Keremeos correspondence last week appeared this  item: "Another car of men  passed through town Thursday  for Copper mountain." So they  are now being imported in car  lots. The time is not far dis-  distanfc when the railway companies will have feeding troughs  at intervals along their lines  and carry stocks of alfalfa ensilage, baled macaroni, bologna,  saurkraut and raw fish. And  our boys are fighting to protect  car-lot consignments of bohunks  for the B. C. Copper company.  Lettees have been received  from headquarters in the province, of prohibitionists and the  antis, offering to supply interest-  items weekly to   the  Gazette,  free of charge, and take copies of  the paper, also free.   They will  supply the items free.    Thanks  "awfully."   Headers of the Gazette have doubtless arrived at  definite conclusions in reference  to   the   liquor   traffic.    It is a  question which requires no discussion either in the press or on  the platform.

Personally   we  would   vote in  favor of shooting the  habitual  druakurd and the man who sup-  The    Canadians   have    been  hard hit again on the western  front in France, suffering severe  losses, yet sustaining their well-  earned    reputation   for   pluck,  dash and endurance.    The boys  who have gone to war from the  country north  of us, separated  only  by  an imaginary boundary line,  voluntoers, men who  have had no military training  and   no  experience   as professional  soldiers, have   won undying laurels on  many a hard-  fought field, proving themselves  as fearless,  as reckless of life  and limb, with just as unyielding    staying   qualities   as   the  seasoned  and veteran soldiery  of the old world.    The pity  of  it is the   Canadians  have paid  dearly for their intrepidity. We  may not have  the right point  of view of this war, but to one  at a distance it looks as though  England is leaving much of the  more   severe   fighting   to   her  allies and colonists.    In proportion  to the number of troops  supplied England has suffered  less loss than any other nation  mixed in-this gigantic struggle,  or any  of  her  colonial contingents, which looks a good deal  like shirking her share of sacrifice.���������Oroville Gazette.  Naturally the viewpoint and  the conclusion of the editor of  the Oroville Gazette are not the  same as that of the Canadian.  With-us it is not a question affecting one particular section  or the sacrifices made by it, but  one of Empire. We believe the  Welsh have been the hardest  hit of any portion of the British Empire. The Canadian  army is composed of English,  Irish, Scotch, Welsh, Americans,  French, Norwegians and Slavs,  all Canadians. We believe the  English are doing their share  in the fighting. A Scotch or an  Irish unit may be half English.  Possibly the only units that are  free from the race blending are  some of those from Wales. All  are "doing their bit" on land  and sea, and doing it well.  In loving memory of our dear  brother, Pte. John Aitken,  Royal Scots Fusileers, who died  of wounds at the Dardanelles,  June 20th, 1915, aged 27 years.  He was a brother* truly fond,  A friend both kind and true;  A better brother never lived���������  His equals were but few.  He little thought when he left home  That he would ne'er return,  But now he lies in a lonely grave  And we are left to mourn.  His cheery ways, his smiling face,  Are a pleasure to recall;  There is nothing left to answer*  But his photo on the wall.  You had a cheery worn ������or each,  And died esteemed by all.
