The provincial.legislature was  opened on/the 1st instant by  Frank Barnard, lieutenant-governor, accompanied by military  and naval escorts and the usual  and necessary ������anfare.  J. W. Weart, member for  South Vancbu-ver, was unanimously elected speaker of the  house, after'Svliicli "the "Bishop  of Columbia Offeredupa prayer  for the people of the province.

Bowser has been made leader  of tho opposition, and . has  opened the Vancouver ballot-  stuffing stink-pot by a number  of questions thrown at tho attorney-general. ,_ It is not improbable that Bowser and Mac-  donald will take up-most of the  session trying to besmirch the  not too clean Grit and Tory  linen of the Terminal City. The  majority of the people of the  people of the province believe  that the politicians of Vancouver .would want more than  splits in a faro game if they  were banking it.  What the people are paying  for is legislation for all "classes.  Bowser was defeated because  he didn't represent till classes.  He represented only the legal  profession and tried to run the  rest of the people by machine.  If Bowser's statesmanship) is of  the ballot-stuffing kind, the  sooner the opposition get rid of  him "the better for the Conservative party. If Macdonald is  in the house to wash dirty linen  the sooner Brewster ties a can  to his tail the better' for the  Liberal party. People aro tired  of pettifoggers) They, want  statesmen results for- money  expended jn legislation.  The War.  Nothing of particular importance has occurred on either  front except the British advance  on the west and the German retirement to a new position. Of  course the press"dispatches contain the opinions of pre Cambrian relics, known as "'expert  strategists," who lounge around  around clubs in London, drink  highballs,  aud   tell   what   Iiin-  the  home and  Dominion  crnments have not taken "the  people into their confidence.  The war may continue for  several years, and it is not  probable the Hun power will be  smashed this year. The only  hope of a speedy termination of  the war is a rapid advance of  the British and- French in the  west this spring., Whether or  not they can do -this is known  only to the commanders of the  forces engaged.  China, it is reported, intends  to declare war against Germany  Why China should do this and  what she can do after she has  declared war would be a good  opening .for a  guessing contest.

He is not  really a Canadian. He was born here,  but all the formative years of his life  vcrc spent in Great Britain. In the  same way a boy born in Great'Britain and coming out to Canada at  twelve years of age, is a Canadian by  the lime he is as old as Eonar Law,  or sooner.  Environment has as much to do  with the formation of character as  birth or race. The Englishman is a  product of'environment. He was at  home on the-sea because he was an  islander. He became an explorer and  a colonist because his island home  was too small to allow scope for his  energy.  Under new surroundings nicn__ -require -a new point of view.

Those slow aLuut indicating a preference for the sccon.d  were seized and carried away. Not  since barbarian days has such a  thing been done.  German military necessity is great,  and a state, ��������� as Bernhardi' was at  pains to establish, is not ��������� bound by  moral considerations. "Pity," says  Nietzsche, "is weakness." Germany  needs workers for her munition factories or for her fields to produce  food for her armies and her munition'  workers. So she disregards the restraints of international law aud humanity.

The most'  the rheumatic sufferer can hope for iu  rubbing something on the tender, aching joint, is a little relief. No lotion  or liniment ever did or can make a  cure. The rheumatic poison is rooted  in the blood. Therefore rheumatism  can only be cured when.this poisonous acid is diriven out of the blood.  Any doctor will tell you this is true.  If you .want/something' that will go  right to the root of the trouble in the  blood take Dr. Williams Pink Pills.  They make new, rich blood which  drives out the poisoiTous acid and  cures rheumatism to slay cured.

Had the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company continued its original intentions 30 years ago when it went to  ' great cost to have a survey line run  from Winnipeg via Edmonton  through the Peace River country and  on through the Peace Pass over the  Rockies, then down the Fraser to  Vancouver, tltTs story could have been  written long ago, and the world would  have known much earlier of the valley of the- Peace as one of thcrichest-r  most fertile sections of the Dominion.  i What a little thing frequently turns  the destinies of .human beings. Likewise what a little tiring often turns  the destinies of a country. Thirty  years ago the railroad builders were  'used to studying a map of Canada  across which was marked a red bell,  reaching frdtil ' the International  Boundary, line to a little above Calgary. ' This belt was marked, "the  fertile bell," and the intimation- was  so well believed that to suggesrbuiid-  ing a line out of or beyond :ts boundary, was lo'court ridicule. The 'rc.al  line then building refused to take its  land grants beyond the margin of'this  supposed "fertile belt." Years previously the Hudson's Bay Company  had kept within the fertile belt in  choosing the land it was to retain in  the sale of its holdings to lire Dominion.  Time dragged on indefinitely before  it was discovered that grain wou1d  grow here as fine as in any country  in the world, and there was an abundance of the "plains" waiting for  settlement. Therefore,- it is not to  be wondered at that even with a  steady flow of settlers thirty j-ea*s  would be required to fill the southern  . palleys and, plains of the province of  Alberta. Ii was not within the nature  Df things'that the Peace should have  its'turn.at settlement until these more  accessible sections were pretty well  . filled up.  Its turn came, however. For many  years men of vision kept their eyes  on the great valley that lay along the  big   river  of  the   north. s. They  read  ..every little ;scrap of evidence as. to its  'fertility. -They buttonholed the. travellers who returned "from its inner recesses. ���������-Newspapers'i printed- ull the  information ..they could get' nold qf  and in time almost all the. civilized  world had heard of the wonderful va'-  ������������������ ley.

Screenings Go Across Border  This ' was five years- ago. People  knew very little of the man behind  :������he scheme, only they knew-he, had a  "vision, and notwithstanding many  ventures along the same, line had  been started and failed, there was a  general feeling that this. man would  succeed.' '      '  Foi- the few years previous to this  timeiiardy pioneers had been ventu/-  ing into the country and were already beginning to produce- -'bountifully from the virgin-soil. The starting- of-actual steel laying gave a hew  impetus to.-tlic movement so that b}-  the spring of 1914 many of the'different sections of the great valley hid  settlements of considerable 'size, and  farming operations had been, pustied  on until it was felt that the experi-  hientaL point has been well passed.  The land was yielding as they had  been told it could and would, and  Stock.^was ��������� doing so splendidly that  every settler was trying his best to  increase his herds.  Year by year the line of steel crept  north. It crossed the Athabasca. It  skirted the hundred miles of- Lesser  Slave Lake. . It divided at Round  Lake, sending one branch to the village of Peace River, the other bram.Ii.  going" to Grande Prairie, and tiie  main  line  continuing to Spirit  River.  Year by veai\ too, the inflow cf  .i'cttlcrs-continued. Trading posts were  established, villages sprang up, rural  centres were formed, mail route er-  tablished, school districts were formed and churches were built. In the  meantime learns of oxen aird horses  were slipping the breaking plo s  through the black sod and crops were  planted. _ There was no disappear-  ment for in every tase where ordinary  care was exercised the reward was  wonderful.  Today the Peace River country is  an integral part of producing Canada,  with fifteen thousand people of the  right sort, every one of whom believe  firmly lhat it is the best place on  earth, and arc ready to back Jiat belief with both labor and capital.  What the Peace Offers  A few facts concerning this praiseworthy country:  The Peace has within its boundaries  three  hundred ���������miles* of railroad.  It has a half dozen villages ivith  from two hundred" to seven hundred  inhabitants.  It has five religious denominations,  carrying on church and social work.  It has several school districts established and in first-class running  order, at least two of which have high  school   facilities.-  J  It has eight elevators along i'.s  railroad lines.  It has every kind of domestic stock  Americans Eager Buyers and Product;  Comes Back as Patent  Preparation  That all foul seeds taken from grain  at Fort William and Port" Arthur  should be confiscated by the government and converted into meal for the  use of stock raisers and dairyment of  the west, is the opinion emphatically  expressed by W. A.- Matheson, of tiie  Lake of the Woods Milling "Company.  He said * this- valuable mat-trial was  being sent to Michigan and Wisconsin  by shiploads, where it was enriching  the farmers of those states engaged  in the'.livestock industry, while our  farmers were badly in need of-it.  y. "Our screenings are compensating  the farmers of Michigan and Wisconsin for the loss of their.pine forests,"  said Mr. Matheson,-"and for the life  of me I cannot understand what our  farmers organizations are thinking  of. If they would look after matters  like this instead of spending so much  time trying to remedy real or fancied  troubles by legislation they would be  better off.    '-.'..'"  "If I were the -'.minister of -agriculture I would confiscate all these  screenings and put them in a small  inexpensive plant-to convert them into 'meal to be shipped back1'to . the  prairies to be .fed to stock on the  farms. A lot of grain ca'rs havo to  be brought back empty and I am sure  the railway companies would-be glad  to haul the meal' for a dollar a ton.  To this would have to be added the  cost of grinding so - that farmers  would be able to. secure it at.a "nominal price.   "���������������������������''  "American buyers are How paying  $6 a, ton for the stuff at the lake  front elevators, ,-a fact that indicates  its value as a stock food.

Experience    of, Ship   Captains Who  Were Captured by a Submarine  A grim tale is'told'by Captain Curtis, of the American steamer Columbian, which was destroyed by a German submarine. Captain Curti'"  says: "My ship carried a cargo ot  about 9,000 tons and a crew of 109.  Wc were all saved. . I stopped on  the demand of the submarine, whose  commander ordered mc to abandon  my ship with the crew immediately,  which wc did' without other baggage  than two satcliols with ' documents  and money.  ''Submarine U49 at once fired two  torpedoes at the Columbian, which  immediately sank. The crew (were  left in the lifeboats, while I was  taken on board the submarine, which  plunged immediately afterwards  ' "\ was taken into the quartermaster's" small cabin, where I found the  captains of the Setanio and Balio.  ���������After me came the captain of the  Norwegian ship Fordalo.  The cabin was very small. Tt  contained a little folding table a  folding chair and 'three wall bunks.  All were permeated with the odor  of benzine". There was no communication with the exterior cabin. _ It  was absolutely dark    both  by night  and" day.  "Wc were given each morning a  few morsels of black bread, a cup  of coffee, and a small portion of bad  butter. At noon wc had stew made  of canned meat and soup. Supper-  was at 10, conSisling of coffee or tea,  with butter or marmalade. Hours  passed in this narrow prison, very  long and���������disagreeable. The cap to in  of the submarine was a man about  36, while the crew of -10 sailors were  all very young and were dressed in  shiny -leather clothing."  They were allowed at intervals between the operations of the submar  inc to go on deck and smoke a cigarette. They were watched by members of the crew armed with revolvers, but when they went below lire  crew put aside their weapons. There  was only one chair in the cabin,  which the captains used in turn,  otherwise ihey lay down iu their  blinks.  The submarine signalled to the  Swedish steamer" "Varirrg, when 13  miles off tho Spanish port of Cam-  arina, towards noon on the 9th. The  steamer stopped and was ordered to  take on board the captains and land  them. She was also ordered lo tyke  on board the crews of the Columbian  and of the Norwegian steamers al  the same.time.    ; ,  All .were welcomed on board the  -Varing.

What Canada Has Done  By C. W. Eliot, President Emeritus  of Harvard  The, Canadian people have made  three1" important contributions���������to the  moral-influences, of the great war in  time to come. They have demonstrated:  That a free and vigorous people,  given Jo both agriculture and manufacturing, which lias never maintained a profession of arms or a professional .army, can develop in six  months to a year a-democratic army  of high martial spirit and great efficiency.  That Iovff of free institutions and  love of country arc motives strong  enough, to induce the mass of a free  people to relinquish temporarily the  usual liberty of the individual aud  some precious public liberties,, in'- order that the State .may conduct a  just, and necessary war with the utmost energy.  That Canada is taking, and is to  take, her full share in unifying and  consolidating the world-wide British  Commonwealth, and in'putting it resolutely on the ..path of sob,e'r democratic  progress.

Shrewd Buyers  Getting Best Lands  Canadians and Americans Think Novels Fine Buying Time  A Calgary firm has recently sold  $376,000 worth of choice Alberta land  to Alberta farmers, and sales '.have  been made amounting to over S200,-  000 to buyers from the States.  Most of lire land sold to Alberta,  buyers has been purchased by prosperous Alberta fanners, who know  the value of these lands and,the pur-  chaser������ have been/ anxious to increase  their holdings while tire land can be  bought at a low price.  The buyers from the States have  been "-mostly wealthy wheat farmers  from Oregon and Washington, who  know the value of Alberta's choice-  wheat land, and they have bought the  best land aud paid the higher prices  that have been paid this year for improved lands, and they li'ive nrade  large cash payments.  After the war is over iliere willbe  a great demand for mixed farming  lands' in Alberta, and there will be  thousands of buyers come to Alberta  who will not be able to buy choice  wheat laud, as these lands will soon  be beyond the reach of men wi'b  small means, but Ihey can purcharc  cheap dairy aud mixed fanning lands  at prices and on terms that will be  safe foruhem to buy oir, and while  these lands may not raise No. 1  wheal, the purchaser will probably  find that he can raise sonic fairly  good wheat even on the cheap lands  that are not considered the best land  for_ wheat at this  time.  The fact that the farmers of Alberta arc well satisfied with Alberta  has been proven by the fact lhat they  are in many cases buying more land,  and are building fine houses and  barns. They arc taking more ivlcr-  cst in having the roads improved as  most of the farmers in the wheat districts are buying automobiles, and,  of course, it is natural tliat anyore  owning an automobile and who uses,  it in the country 'should be interested  in having good roads.  ���������. ���������-T/housands of acres of lhe lands  that have been bought -this year have  been developed during the spring anil  summer, .and a larger acreage wiU  be developed next spring.

His practice was extremely profitable, but the  rewards had.no attraction for him  and he sacrificed three-quarters of  his income voluntarily to enter politics. He was elected to Parliament  by a Scottish constituency in 1886.  Soon he made himself felt. It was  a resolution he introduced which  brought about the downfall of Lord  Salisbury's Cabinet. He won his first  Cabinet portfolio in 1892,"\vht.n Gladstone appointed him Home ."jcrc-  tary. This post he held for three  years, continuing in office under the  Premiership of the Earl of Rosebcry.  When the Liberals returned .o office in 1905, Asquith became Chancellor of the Exchequer under Sir  Henry Campbcll-Bannerman.

"Still more significant is a passage from a socialist rc-dew* by a  writer who refers to Soinlt "America,  where Germany is obliged lo turn  for 70 to SO per cent, of her essential  colonial imports, and as a country  economically and poliliciily under  Anglo-American influence, whiclrin-  i'uence is that of "Slates harboring  inimical sentiments towurds Germany.'

No Prime Minister of Great Britain has ever been confronted with  more serious problems than those  which the great war forced upon Asquith. He was regarded as the natural selection for the leadership of  the Coalition administration.  Asquith has faced much criticism,  bitter at times, since the beginning  of the war for the manner in which  he handled some of "its problems, but  it has always been admitted, even by  his enemies, that, although he is a  "hard man," he has worked steadfastly and loyally according to his  lights.

Standard bread will be something like  whole wheat bread, a large part ot  the bran being retained in tlic dour.  It is for the purpose of having a suitable article sent from Canada lhat  the millers' commission has been  chosen.

Calls Upon Us To  End Hun Scourge  Holland  Declares   Cruelties  Inflicted  Upon Belgians Are More Vivid  Every Day  The Associated Press has received  from Amsterdam an "appeal to the  American people" by the Flolland  section of the League of Neutral  States. The appeal is signed Ly President Niemeyer and Secretaries Dc-  lafaille and Walch, and in part says:  "Your president has said that  sooner or later a moment would  come when the war would make the  position of neutral nations unbearable. For us Hollanders that moment has arrived; not through our  own sufferings, but because- we cannot longer passively contemplate the  ghastly suffering inflicted by Geimany upon Belgium, our neighbor.  "To us the cruelty inflicted on the  Belgians by Germany is more vivid  every day. Every day numbers cf  fugitives, in spite of the deadly electric wire which the Germans have  erected along the frontier, succeed in  escaping to the Netherlands.

This tyranny is not to be borne m patience,  and the neutral nations can no lou-  ger stand idly by while in Western  Europe the most primitive laws o'f  humanity, observed even by i ncivil-  ized races, are trampled under foot.  "We appeal to you to urge your  government to energetic and decisive  action and to call upon the other .neutral nations^ to rally around you. ' We  do not hesitate to take it upon ourselves to speak with firm conviction  in the name of humanity, and our  hope is firmly fixed on thst sense of  justice which has always formed one  of the most cherished traditions of  citizens of the United States. Americans, wc are convinced that you will  not disappoint our expectations."  Dominion and United  States Protect Birds  International  Treaty  Has   Been   Arranged Between Them  An' international treaty providing  for the protection of the migratory  birds has been arranged between  Canada and the United States. Details of the agreement is made public  by Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of  agriculture, who has had charge of  tho negotiations for .Canada.  The matter was first taken rp at  Washington in 1914, and the move--  ment has received the support of the  departments of agriculture in both  countries and the commission of conservation of Canada.  The chief aim of the agreement is  to prevent the unnecessary slaughter  of wild fowl and other, migratory  birds on both sides of'the boundary.  It has been agreed to restrict the  open season for all such birds to 3 1-2  months. The open season must fall  between September 1 and  March  lO.  The prohibition of spring shooting  on both "sides of the boundary also  has been agreednto, and the international shipment of birds will be prohibited.  The treaty has received the warm  approval of-sportsmen and of all associations for the protection of wild  fowl. -  Back Up Men Doing,  ^     The Fighting  Blackest Outrage  Since Dark Ages  The Windjammer, Once Relegated to  Oblivion, Is In Demand  It was not so very long ago thtt  any reference, cither written or spoken, concerning sailing vessels was  an obituary in itself.

This was the keynote- of a  speech ,  delivered by Sir Thomas  White,- the"  Minister  of  Finance, -to'an audience-  that crowded  Massey Hall, Toronto,  after his trip to England and, the'battle front.   The speaker laid particular  stress upon the splendid work being  done by "  Canadian soldiers   " abroad  and also     paid ,high  tribute     to  the  people and-government    of  England  for the way in which they took care  of  the men of the "Dominion forces,  both on  the  firing line and  in  England. ' "  The Canadian., hospitals in -England  were doing a great work, said Sir  Thomas. He paid particular attention to that of the Waldorf Astors, to  whom, he said, Canada owed a great  debt of gratitude for what they were  doing at Cliveden.  He voiced Canada's determination  to carry on the war to-a victorious*  end, and prophesied that it would not  end until jGermany was prepared to  meet the terms of the Allies.  "Canada," said Sir Thomas, "with  a heterogenous , population of eight  millions, scattered over a' territory as  large as the continent of Europe, has  recruited nearly 400,000 of her. sons^  has transported a quarter of a million  overseas and has placed more than  one hundred thousand in the forefront "of the battle line of Westeru^  Europe.   - ""  "Before the war a borrowing nation, she is today-financing her own  heavy expenditures and in addition is  loaning money to the Mother Country to aid her finance on this side  of the' Atlantic. ������ ".   .  ,_"Canada, before the war, with" an  adverse international - trade balance  of $300,000,000 today_ has a favorable  balance, "which for the current year  will reach at' least five hundred mil-  lion dollars and probably "more.

But  never has the national spirit been  more indomitable. Whether the  struggle that lies before us is -short  or long, they will see it through.  "All the circumstances surrounding the peace proposals were cuch as  to create profound suspicion.  "Peace," he said, "a lasting peace,  is the goal of our desire���������the -aim of-  all our policy���������the greatest national  asset which the British Empire cart  possess."  ','��������� The western front, according, to Sir  Thomas, is the decisive theatre of the  war, and that there "Germany would  be defeated. Any peace proposals  must come from a-thoroughly beaten  foe. They must offer reparation for  monstrous wrongs, expiation,for unspeakable crimes. They must offer  security for the peace  of the  future.

(Cheers.)  Waste Wood Products  Lumbering    Is   the   Third   Greatest  Industry in ������anad*-  In an address on the' chemical and  industrial ' possibilities of Western  Canada, delivered at Vancouver before the first meeting of the Canadian  (Pacific) branch of the British Society of Chemical Industry, Dr. R. H.  Clark, M.A., Ph.Dd., of the University of British Columbia, made the  following reference^ to the forest  wealth of this province:  "Lumbering is our' third greatest  industry. The ' United . States - forest  service has estimated that- in from  twenty to thirty years their forests  will be depleted. In Canada^ and the  United - States wc- use '500 feet per  capita per annum; against: sixty feet  per. capita in Europe.  "A single issue of*a New -York  newspaper's Sunday edition requires  -fifteen acres of forest. The waste of  our timber resources is "due to fire,  careless logging, wasteful mill operations and-over-production. In all, it  is claimed 75. per cent.'-oiVour forest  products are wasted, 20 per cent.' of  the log (the upper. part)~,is left in, the  woods to rot or' burn, .and one-third  of the slab residue is consumed in-  refuse burners. . "*  "The importance of the forests,  arises not solely'from their being the  source of our, timber, but, still more  important, because of their bearing  upon our water supply. "In i forest  cover not only is erosion irripbssiblc,  but the rains evaporate"-more slowly,  the snows melt less rapidly, the runoff is gradual, floods - cease, and  streams are available for waterpow-  er. As Mr. Pinchot says, 'when the  forest fail, every man, woman and  child will feel the-pinch.'  "The problem has bee*n solved in  Europe. The forest of Germany are  300 per ,cent. 'better than seventy  years ago, "and the yield 'per acre  sevenfold what it was. Let us agitate  to have the same problem ^ solved  here while there is plenty of time.  "What can wc do with "our waste  wood products here in British Columbia? Our wood-distillation plants  in'the past have not, been as successful as has bcenhoped for, the yield  of turpentine being too low lo compete with southern forests;, and' J^e-  yield of wood alcohol antl--ax-(*taTc of  lime too 'low to compete with the  hard woods. Yet it has. been known  for a long time that the cellulose, or  woody material, can, by the simple  action of mineral acids, be converted  into dextrose, which, in turn, Is attacked by ordinary yeast and converted- into the best of alcohol, such  as we- get from grain and potatoes."  An Anglo-Saxon Union  of  Facts Concerning Gasoline "*  According to the National Safety  Council, gasoline should be kept and  used only in small quantities, and  it&ed only by experienced persons  who realize the danger in using this  volatile fluid and know how* to handle  it safely. Gasoline should be handled in small safety cans', equipped  .with safety gauze and safety stopper.  Gasoline is exceedingly volatile and  willvaporizc when exposed to the air  at any tempcraturejdown to 15 below  zero.  This-vapor is nearly three times as  heavy as air, and when mixed with  lire proper quantity of air becomes  violently explosive. The vapor will  ignite from any open flame, even  from a spark of static electricity from  -.'. human body, a spark from an emery wheel, or from a sufficiently  heated surface. The gasqline vapor,  being heavier than air, will naturally  seek a lower level, and if confined  where there is poor ventilation, will  sometimes remain in an explosive  condition for months.  A   Plan   to   End   the   Savagery  Internationality  The suggestion that the speediest  way to secure the abolition of war is  through a union of the Anglo-Saxon  world was made by President Darwin  P. Kingsley, of the New York Life  Insurance Co., at the commencement exercises of the University of  Vermont.. Before the world can have  peace, he argued, we must end the  "savagery of internationality," or, in  other words, the nations must become truly democratic. Ultimately  this may be brought about through  the federation of the democratic  world, but as a first step Mr. Kings-  ley proposed the reunion of the  Anglo-Saxon world. "This reunion  must be accomplished," said he, "not  to overawe any other people, rrot to  pile up force _ with which to meet  force, not to eliminate small nationalities or make great ones afraid, but  primarily to make the Anglo-Saxon  world real!-/ democratic���������democratic  inter-state as well as intra-state, democratic as our 48 States are internally democratic." Such a federation,  he predicted, would sooner or later  come to include FVance, Holland,  Switzerland, probably the Scandinavian countries and Spain, and possibly some of the South American republics. The uniqueness of the suggestion is the unification of the  Anglo-Saxon world, which has suffered but one great division in its empire since the days of King Alfred. ���������  Charlton Bates Straycr, in Leslie's.  Birds Beat Records  Of Human Flyers  Feathered Aeronauts Can Remain in  the Air Much Longer Than  Modern Aeroplane  Among the greatest ornithologists  of recent times was the late Wells  Woodbridge Cooke, who contributed  a vast amount of information regarding the migration of birds. He found  among the many other startling facts  that some of, the birds covered great  distances during their migration. In  a report on "Our Shore Birds and  Their Future," he says:  "Most migratory birds, in crossing  large areas of water, start soon after  sundown, and reach their destination  before morning. But, the Pacific golden plover flies the whole day as ,wcll  as the'whole night^ and, as it prob-  ably'does not exceed a speed of 50  miles an hour, the single flight from  Alaska to Hawaii ' consumes nearly  twice 24 hours. How superior���������the  bird's mechanism 'to the best aeroplane yet made! .These feathered  aeronauts remain in- the air several  times as long as the longest endurance test of the modern aeroplane,  and' there is much'thc same fliffer-  ence'in the efficiency of the two machines.  "The ."to-and-fro" motion of the  bird's wings wolild seem to be an uneconomical ' way of applying power,  since all the force required to bring  the ".ving forward'to begin the stroke  is 'rriore than wasted, because it increases ., the air friction and retards  the speed. On the other hand, the  screw-propeller of-the aeroplane has  no"lost motion. Yet less than two  ounces.'of fuel iii the form of bodv  fat suffice to carry the bird al high  speed over that 2,000-mile' course. To  be equally economical, a 1,000-p'ound  aeroplane would have to use only a  single pint of-gasoline in flying 20  miles, instead of the gallon now used  by the latest models."  The Cowardice of  An Inclusive" Peace  Evolution of the Watch  Human Waste-  A few years ago Dr. Macrramara, a  well-known member of the British  House of Commons, who had formerly been a public school teacher, in  a public address stated that the  streets of the city of London were  filled with potential Miltons, Shakes-  peares, Edisons and 'Lloyd Georges,  who would never enjoy the opportunity of exercising their dormant tah  ents because of the poverty of their  environment. Dr. Macnamara then  went on to declare that it was .the  function of the State to make it impossible for such conditions to exist,  their .continuation resulting in both  shame and loss to the nation.���������Saskatoon  Phoenix.

War .itself is but a contingency, inevitable, since it arises from  human jjassions, and- one should nrt  wish to avoid it at the price of higher  interests. To wish for peace for  peace's sake, peace at any price,  would be to accept with equal indifference justice and injustice, truth  and lies.

May Have Been  .   the Inventor of the First  ��������� Timepiece  Nobody knows who invented the  watch. Laborious research by antiquarians in all ages has so tar failed  to reveal anything which would serve,  as a basis for definite historical fact.  From the somewhat disjointed and  .cloudy documentary evidence in the  museums of Italy, France and England it is conjectured that the inventor was the "monk Gerbert, better  known in history as Pope Sylvester  II. The only thing definitely established by research is that watches did  not come into use until the close of  the tenth or the beginning of the  eleventh century, soon after Gerbert's  accession to the papal-throne.  The earliest 'watches were little  different from the small tabic clocks  of today. The - case was in the  shape of a cylindrical box, generally  of 'metal chased and gilded, and usually with a hinged lid on one side to  inclose the dial. The lid was engraved and, as a rule, pierced with an  aperture over " each hour through  which the position of the hand might  be seen. Most watches were provided with a bell on which the hours  were sounded in regular progression-  There would seem to have been  little or no change in the character  of the watch until the fourteenth  century, when a gradual reduction  in the size, brought about by tlic  craftsmen of Nuremburg, culminated  in the oval-shaped hand timepiece  aptly described as the Nuremburg  egg.  Queen Elizabeth owned upward of  100 richly chased and jewelled watches, many of them bearing a likeness  of the favorite of the hour.  The eighteenth century saw the  introduction of a watch which was to  remain in vogue for more than 100  years, and which for downright ugliness never has been approached^  Everybody familiar with Hogarth's  portraits .of the early Georgian pet-  iod, or with the illustrations to the  works or Fielding, Smollett, Charles  Lever and Thackeray, remembers, the  cumberous, round-faced, weighty affairs, wound with a key and satirically known to humorists of those  days as the "frying-pan."  Right up to the middle of Jre 19th  century the hand-made English Jcver,  perfected by Dent and Benson, ol  London, maintained its vogue until  American genius in Aaron Denison,  of Boston, evolved the idea of applying machinery to watch manufacturr.  Dcnison's theory that special machines for watch-making might be substituted for human skill and insure  such uniformity of product.that the  different parts of watches would be  virtually interchangeable, was put into" practice with such success --iat it  revolutionized the industry and  brought good timepieces at a reasonable price within the reach of all.

British   Tommies   Will   Have Cause  for Heartfelt Gratitude to  Lady Bacteriologist  In the months to come it is probable that the British "Tommies" will  have cause for heartfelt gratitude  to  Miss Mary Davics, who has been employed as bacteriologist  for the Robert Goelet Research Fund. About a  year ago Miss-Davics inoculated herself with  gangcrenc bacilli in    order  to  demonstrate   the   efficacy  of  Taylor's preparation.  Since then she has  been at work on experiments designed to make cloth antiseptic under any  and all  conditions,  and  a  recent   report from Paris declares tliat her efforts have been crowned    with    success. . It is said that clothing for tire  British soldiers is now being subjected  to   the  Davics  antiseptic  process,  and if tests  on  a  large scale arc  as  successful     as-    recent     experiments  would indicate,    the    mortality    rale  among the British wounded is certain  to be greatly diminished.    As is well  known, a "clean" wound not in a vital  spot   heals   quickly   and   completely,  and it  is  infection   rather  than     the  wound  itself  that  is   responsible   for  the great majority of deaths or amputation due to such wounds. Pieces  of dirty cloth shot into the body constitute in war the most prolific cause  of infection.     Cloth   treated     by  the  process invented by Miss Davics     is  said to remain sterile for months, although    the    uniforms are subjected  to till kinds of dirt  and germs.    Another virtue claimed  for the processed garments, and  one which  will  be  hailed    with   joy   by the soldiers,    is  that body lice    will not linger   on    a  person wearing    such    clothing.     In  the trenches body lice arc almost universal,  and  any  scheme   for  eradicating these pests would in itsdf cause  the Tommies  to  rise eu masse    and  bless the name of Mary Davies.   The  young  woman   scientist  is  connected  with  the   Ris-Orangeis  Hospital,     of  which Dr. Joseph A.

"Lor, mum," replied Mary, "don't  you set no heed on that! Look at  me. I'm not fretting and I've just  broken the large pier-glass in the  drawing room." ��������� Milwaukee Sentinel. '     -    '���������  Forces   of   Czar   Are   Brought   Into  Contact With Movies For  First Time  An officer of the British it-iny has  recently concluded a tour of the Russian front with a cinematograph. He  conducted a show called "Britain  Prepared," a film showing the British, army in the making, and he" displayed his pictures to scores of thousands of Russian troops, many of  whom had never even seen a cinematograph show before. .  It can hardly be that a film has  ever been shown under such strange  conditions: -M-e-rc than once the display, just behind the firing line, was  under shell fire. ���������Oti another occasion  the show had to be'stopped, all lights  turned out and the auclience^of some  thousands ordered to disperse on account of the approach of a Zeppelin.  The films were shown in stuffy theatres and in the open, sometimes >n ���������  the rain, but with-the interested Russian troops enthusiastically waiting  and watching.  Not one in a hundred .thousand  Russian soldiers had ever seen a British Tommy. The film showed these  soldiers of the Czar precisely what  their British allies look like, and vjave  them a full realization of his training,  ([equipment and work."  The new- British film of the battle  of the Somme is also to be displayed  to the Russian army. Then the Russian troops will know more about lhe  actual fighting in France. Preparations arc being made, too, for a film  of the Russian army, which will be  displayed to British troops in England and in France.  It is a curious thing how little  many of the allied soldiers know  about the troops of other nationalities who are fighting the same fight.  The allies are drawn up in, a huge  circle around Europe, the Russians  on the north and cast, the Italians on  the south, and the British and French  on the- west. They all, except the  Italians, know much of their German  opponents, but little- of on: another.  The French have sonrc idea of the  Russians, for there are now a considerable number of them with the  French army in France, although-  there are still- hundreds of thousands  of- Frenchmen who have not laid eyes  on them. Very few British soldiers'  have ever seen a Russian. The Italians know nought of the appearance  of scarcely any of their allies, except, of course, the Italians fighting  at Saloniki with the British and  French. There arc, however, comparatively few Italian 'troops there.  The Russians have seen nothing of  either British,,French or Italians except the few British who are handling armored motor cars in Russia.  By the use of"the cinema, this condition is being changed. The display  of the film "Britain Prepared" has  shown the Russian army the British  soldier in training. The-Somme film  will show him in action.  The showing of the film n'as proved a wonderful success. It has visibly brought tlic two armies closer  together. ' The Russian army, officers  and men, showed great cntnusiasm  for England and England's troops,  and their confidence in Ihe ultimate  success of the allies was strengthened."  ��������� In another way the same thing i~,  being done. The British army is  sending postal card greeting.- to the  Russians by hundreds of thousands.  The cards show types of British soldiers in full dress uniform.- ��������� red  coats, beaver hats and all���������and they  arc being distributed throughout tiie  Russian army. On each card there  is an inscription in Russian and in  English, as follows:  "Forward, comrades! Forward,  friends! Let us struggle ou undaunted���������struggle on till death in the name  of Christ and Truth.    "  "From your friend, soldier of the  Third Division.  "Christ is Risen!"  The ca'rds have made a strong appeal to the Russian troops and plans  are in the making for their relur.i.  The 9th Russian Division, for instance, will send greetings to the 9ih  British.   *  Throughout his tour of the Russian .  front the British officer in charge of  the "Britain Prepared" film was "mo.-1  cordially received. The pictures wore  seen by thousands of men. At one  show there were ten thousand spectators. Scarcely less warm was the  reception accorded the officer's soldier servant, a private. He was a fine  type of a British Tommy. lU: picked  up some Russian and proved most  popular, as well as an object of universal curiosity. On one -uccasioM,  by request of the general commanding, he was paraded, all by himself,  before a company of Russians, who  gazed upon this visiting warrior willi  rapt attention, to his great embarrassment.  It is not difficult to imagine that  the effect of this display of British  films, and of Russian films iu France  later, will have a far-reaching effect..  Certainly it will work for unity . amongst the allies. Displaying ihe magnitude of British preparations ard  the magnificence of British fighting  as will . be shown in the famous  Somme film, will lend even greatf-r  confidence to the Russian troops.

She was rrot inclined to be hysterical, but was a healthy, well-balanced  English girl. Nevertheless she was  conscious of a certain strain during  the past few days, and sometimes,  .full of nervous fears as she was, she  felt herself to be not very far from  that borderland where fancy and  fact lucrflc the one into the other.  Her first thought, on seeing^ the  face, had been that it was Cipriar  come back to the home of his boyhood. Although she had only rac/i  him once, and although on that occasion ire wore a long beard, whereas  ihe face at the window was beard-  Vess, Mabin had been so deeply ar.d  .romantically impressed by the man's  charming, breezy, wholesome personality that she had at once believed tlic. face at the window to be His.  Changed it was; indeed, so pale  that it had looked almost green in'thi*  bright light from the. electric damns;  But knowing .that he had been ill,  Mabin had looked upon the change'  -as the result of the terrible attack  made upon him, and even now 'hat  Ehe thought the matter over, it seemed to her that it must have oeeu the  same face. y,'  Yet why should Ciprian, if indeed  ?.t Were he, come in that fu.-tive fashion-to the home.of his father? Why  .should'he peep in, as if ashamed of  himself, instead of coming to *:he  door aud asking" admittance? The'"',  had been no quarrel between nini and  _Jris father; on the contrary, Lord  Moorhamplon was expecting, his return. His son had been received into the house with all the-honors due  to  the. eldest   son of  the "eldest  son.  Why should he come by stealth instead of openly?. There was only  one possible answer that -oggestec  itself to that question, and it was one  she shrank from accepting. It  ���������might be that the blow on'the head  had turned his brain. Unhappily,  there was much in the fleeting  glimpse she had had of lite face be-  . hind the glass to warrant such a supposition.  The wild eyes, the haggard cheeks,  the vacant look in the once merry  blue eyes; all seemed -to confirm a  suspicion so dreadful that Mabin  could not bear to harbor it.  Almost without .her knowledge, the  girl had fallen under the spell of '.his  attractive stranger .and it was the romantic interest she felt in him, even  more than the pity she felt for the  child, which inspired the passionate  devotion with which she was giving  herscif, body and soul, to the care of  little Julius.  The thought that his father migirt  be wandering about the world, insane  and in misery, was horrible. Yet it  seemed to her that this was lhe only  alternative to the supposition that  'what she 'had seen was a nu re figment of her heated imagination.  The maid came to summon her to  tea, and she went down to the nursery, still thinking out the-problem,  and wondering whether the housekeeper, that discreet woman, had h'ul  any inkling of the story of the (ace  at the window before her visit.  Why should she have come to sc  Mabin in her room, without any better excuse than the bringing of a  candle' which Mabin did not. want?  Did she believe that Mabin had seen  Ciprian in the flesh? She had scoffed  at the notion. But then, knowing  her,-Mabin felt that this was no nroof  that she did rrot believe it.

The girl was in a fever of distress,  wondering what steps she should  take to save Dibs, and quite certain  in her own mind that Lady Moorhampton's brother had that afternoon  made his first -"attempt to get the  child out of the wav of his nephew.  Would it be of any use to till Lord  Moorhampton? She doubted it. Most  likely such a step would only '.cad to  an open vquarrel-with Lady Moorhampton, which could not but harm  the  boy's  cause.  To one thing sire made up h t  mind: she would stay with Julius that  evening,- would keep watch bv his  bedside, instead of going down to  dine'with the rest of the family.  She had from the first wished to  avoid what wa.s to her a Irving ordeal; but Lord Moorhampton, in the  kindness of his heart, had insisted  that she should dine with them, and  Lady Moorhampton had found hci  useful afterwards to accompany her  singing on the piano.  That evening, however, Mabin r.o.nl  a message down to the effect lh-i,  Julius had been ill, aud that he wanted her to stay with him; whereupon  Lady Moorhampton sent a message  back to the effect that Miss Wrest  must come down to dinner, and thr-!  one of the nurses would sit up with  the boy.  After a minute's hesitation, Mabir  decidedthat it would be better <o  obey this summons, and to make hci  escape, with or without permission,  the moment dinner was over.  She was careful to be very defcren-  tinl to Lady Moorhampton on all oc  casions, and now, after the scene lithe corridor that afternoon, she fel.  that she had need of all her tact.  But one thing she could not do: ii  was impossible for her to be civtl u.  Joe Wright. At dinner she had to si.  beside-him; and    although the table  was so large, that he was not very  near her, she could scarcely repress  a shudder of'disgust as he lurched  into his scat, and when he jpokc to  her, she'answered, with her cves_ cast  down, in tones so decidedly _ chilling  that nobody hearing could fail to sec  thai he had offended her.  Joe cast significant glances and  nods and smiles round him, at Dalmaine sitting opposite, at Lady.  Moorhampton, whose lips were very  tightly closed, and whose eyes were  very-bright, and at Lord Moorhampton, who saw, or affected to sec", nothing amiss.  But he refrained from tackling Mabin again as long as dinner lasted.  When, however, the ladies Iffl the  dining-room, and Lady Moorhampton,/ still looking displeased, sailed  away into the drawing-room, expecting Mabin to follow her, the gi>"l  stole away and had reached lhe hall  on her way to the staircase, when  suddenly she,found a hand laid on  her arm, and turning, found herself  in (he grip of Joe Wright.-  (To Be Continued.)  The Ravages at War ,  Some facts communicated by Mr.  Hayes Fisher, afford striking proof  of the loll that ihe 'war is making  upon Great Britain. There arc al-  ready in the care of the state' 50,000  widows and 100,000 orphans. There  arc over 70,000 disabled soldiers. Last  September 22,000 men were drawing  temporary allowances, but these were  being gradually thinned and placed  vpn the pension list. Mr. Arthur Henderson, a new minister of pensions,  believes "disability pensions alone  would necessitate an expenditure cf  $75,000,000 per "annum. The case of  men'entering, the army suffering from  tuberculosis which developed to incapacity were rather numerous, but  provision  was  being made for them.  Proposals For- Enforced Economy  A lot of talking is being done these  days about the desirability of thrift  in order that Canada may have the  financial resources for doing her duty  in the war. The idea is excellent, but  there is no need for Lhe thing to be  overdone.

A Calamity for the Dominion if the  Enemy Should Win  The following letter written^ lo the  Mail and Empire by a citizen of  Scaforth, , who has given the matter  careful study, is worthy of reproduction. Few people have realized what  the present war means. Few. will  even allow themselves to believe that  Germany deliberately went to war  to conquer the world. It is a lesson  the world will have lo learn if liberty is to remain lo the smaller nations.  .Sir,���������I have never seen it very  clcarly stated, what would happen.  I' have been trying to figure "what it-  would mean to the inhabitants of  the British possesions in North  America, audi think it would be  something like this.  The British /lag would be hauled  down   and   replaced  by  tho   German.  The whole of "the British possessions would be declared lo be the  property of  Germany.  The individual owners of part of  the territories, Avhclher on ilil: farm,  in the towns or villages would be  ordered to vacate their holding, to  make way for Germans.  All the personal chattels, goods  and effects of such owners would be  confiscated by the German government  for  their  new settlers.  Of course, the Dominion and provincial governments would be swept  citt of existence, and German government officials  installed.  All tire government arsenals, dockyards, railways", canals and ' -other  public works would, be taken possession of by lire Germans.-  The Canadian Pacific Railway, the  Grand Trunk Railway, the' Grand  Trunk Pacific, all other railways  and public works would be run by  the Germans and the " shareholders  would lose all their investments in  shares "and stock iu these enterprise*.  The telephone lines, the telegraph  lines and tire Hydro Hlectric. lines,  fire and life insurance companies  would follow suit.  The nipncys in the banks would  also be "confiscated i\n4 thoir hilts  put into the furnace lo be- followed  later on by the bills of a Dulsche  bank. It would not make a bit of  difference whether one had $5 or  ������10,000 on deposit in a bank, not one  cent could be got. Bank slocks  would be wiped out of existence, and  the only man who would benefit  would be the man who was a debtor  to a bank.���������Seaforlh, Ontario, .Mail  and   If.mpire.  Harrowing Deportation  Scenes Depicted  Gcrm5% Savagery   at Its   Worst in  Belgium  An American eye-witness of the  fiendish 'methods employed by Ger-.  man officers in deporting Belgians  and French from Belgium and  France gives news of a profoundly  stirring character. "Unless Germany," he. says, "can be-induced to  abandon her present policy, between  two and'three hundred ihousand Bel-'  gians will, be deported. I saw one  long train 'of cattle trucks loaded  with prospective deportees. 'Many  had resisted, "only to feci the Ger-  man bayonet: Women and children  had fought for their ,menfolk -with  desperate fierceness���������clothes tattered, eyes streaming, voices screaming  and shouting until hoarse. When  the train had been"loaded the women  and children standing about in the  huge crowd suddenly ran on the line"  in" front of the locomotives, threw  themselves on the rails, aird clung,  there, shutting their eyes and utter-  iny .loud lamentations Detachments  of soldiers pried them loose with  bayonets, and forced them clear of  the track, when the train moved orT"  towards the German frontier. Another distressing feature of the situation in " Bojgium arises from the  forcible importation of French-men  from the provinces of France occupied by* Germany. It appears that  the policy of the German govern~  incut is to work the Belgians in.Germany and work the Frenchmen iu  Belgium, >���������] ncidents of-the,most' pj^m>  ful nature are resulting from the, impressment of .these Frenchmen,  Many of them decline to work, declaring, like the Belgians; it- is into!- .  erable they should be~forced to su'p^  port a Teutonic war against their  own country. In one * case some  thirly-ftvc ' Frenchmen, for refusing"  to work, were tied to trees for  twenty-four hours and more. This  punishment failed to break their will,  and at last 'they were released.

"That    conscription^ be   not  put   into  effect,, before  it. has  been submitted to a referendum  vote of the people  of Canada."  Why not' conscription ? Why  a referendum? Should there be  serious   reverses   to   tho  allies,  ������������������.rid should the Germans obtain  controll of tho sea, and land an  army in  Canada, or should the  the  Germans  manage to cross  from the   U. S., it is presumed  the Federation would still want  a referendum before attempting  to defend thecountiy. . SuerTTtn  invasion is  not probable but is  in the list of possibilities.    The  Dominion should  have at-least  a quarter of  a. million  men in  reserve, drilled   and   equipped  just to be prepared for possible  contingencies   no   matter  how  improbable  they   may appear.  As a trades-unionist, and looking  at   the   question  from   a  union viewpoint, the writer believes that there  should have  been conscription first, and then  the cards could have been filled  by sergeants.    Every man, old  or   young,  should  have   some  position  to fill, some duty allotted to  him, should his services bo required.

A. circular has been received  from A. S. Wells,  secretary of  the B. C Federation of Labor,  calling attention to two resolutions passed at the. Revelstoke  convention.   In  this war it is  either kilts, kahki or petticoats.  If the leu.ders.iu the British Columbia Federation of Labor object-to kilts and kahki, let then.  don the-petticoats,-take up the-.  knitting needles and assitt in  the noble work  the^ women of  the "province are doing.  Here are the resolutions:  "That in view of the opposition of organized labor to cor -  ������cription, and the effort of tie  Dominion government   to im������  Military Hospital Pictures.  An Ontario minister the other  day borrowed from the Military  Hospitals commission a set of  lantern slides. These- slides  slides show what goes on at the  hospitals and sanitoria. That  is, they show something"of how  our injured soldiers are being  restored to health and to power  for self-support however serious  thoir injuries may be. The minister exhibited the slides at  three country churches under  his charge. In returning the  set he writes:  " My recording steward, who  is also the postmaster and chairman of the local recruiting  league, says they should be  shown in every* community.  They meet the unrest in many  families who have feared 'that  the maimed who return will be  forced to sell lead pencils or  such like..  " What I should  have done  was   to   ask   for   them   for   a  longer period and  put them in  every available  church in this  listrict.   A .man  with a * well-  *"��������� repared lecture-and. a few local  ���������ides could- render a  valuable  ���������ervice to  his country, both in  .Haying  the unrest referred to  nd in  removing the prejudice  :ii   some  families  from  which  recruits" might'be secured."
