McCurdy of Similka-  meen was a business visitor in  town Friday of last week,  Mrs. Harold Quant and babv  son returned home on Monday s  train from the Oroville hospita 1-  Mr. Coleman was a week-end  visitor to Princeton, where he  was guest of Mr. and Mrs. Frith.  Mr. Critchley of Hedley will  be iu town for a couple of weeks  repairing harness, boots and  shoes.  Mrs. Tom Daly and daughter  left on Wednesday's train for a  visit with her parents at Oko-  nbgan, Wash.  A good programme is being  arranged foi' the last meeting  of the literary society for the  year. The date will be given,  hiter.  Miss Daffodil Morland of  Cawston is stopping with Mrs.  Keeler and taking up high  school work at the Keremeos  school.  We are very sorry to report  that Mr. Percy Quant, feeling  so much worse last week, his  wife had to take him back to  the Oroville hospital, where he  is now feeling a- little better.  His-many friends wish him a  very speedy recovery.  Mr. Boothman loft with hif  wife and family hist week  for Twisp, Wash , where he ha-  taken over a butcher shop,  Mr. Frith of Princeton was  renewing old acquaintances in  town last Thursday on his way  from Similkameen, whore he  had been on business.  Rev. F. and Mrs. Stanton  drove to Hedley on Sunday  morning, where Mr. Stanton  conducted services Sunday evening. ' They returned to Keremeos Tuesday.  The W. M. S. met at the home  of Mrs. Newton of Cawston on  Thursday afternoon with a  very good attendance. At the  close of the meeting refreshments were served by the hostess.  Mr. M. Amiable, of Amiable,  B. C, was in town for a few  days last week looking after  his intorests hero, and left Friday last for the coast. He expects to return in a week and  secure a carload of horses which  he will take back to the Boundary with him.  The literary . society was held  at its usual place on Monday  night. The debate was that the  horse is more economical and  efficient than the automobile.-  The affirmative was taken by  George Kirby, assisted by Miss  B. Gibson, and the negative by  Miss Kay .Gibson, assisted   by  It was her first visit to town  and she was heartily welcomed  as she appeared before us.  Mr, Stanton, in fine voice,  sang to us the adventures of  that historic blade, '' The Sword  of Ferrara," a,difficult song, but  mastered and sung in a stirring  heroic manner. Mr. Wna. Daly  played -vas violin solos some of *���������  Kreisler's own" arrangements,  which'were as heartily applauded as if they were given by that  great master himself. It is to  be regretted that during Mr.".  Daly's playing one of our stage-  men kept time by hammering  in some door nails. He..was instantly dismissed *and -. if -looks ,  would count he ought by now  to be as dead as the proverbial  doornail.  ~ The Cawston quartette, Messrs  Tickell, Sheridau, Wright and  Crocker, sang '.'Tenting Tonight  on the .Old Camp' Ground"-very  toucliingly, as indeed. the song  has been borne home to'many  of us afr,esh. The scene was a  camp fire^',   / ,  Later in*- 'the evening Mr.  Chris Tickell sang ','Come Back  to Erin,'' assisted',in chorus by  the. Cawston Quartette.  Messrs. /Stauton and paly-  favored" us with with a violin"  duet���������on of Pleyell's���������which we  applauded so that* only an .encore would- appease us;''The"  childaen kept' time ."with their  feet,'which;' unfortunately was  riot the same, time as the artists  were trying to observe.  Mrs: Stanton and Mrs. Thos.  Daly made' the pianoforte give-  up from it*-** wealth' of notes a  double portion of music.

The Community Concert as  put on the boards'of tho Keremeos hall by the Women's Institute, was a great success. Of  course it was a concert in honor  of the late St. Patrick, but fiom  'inside information now at hand  it would appear that it was at  first going Lo bo held on Friday, 10th, but owing to that  date being taken up by the  Cawston Literary society, St.  Patrick's Day was favored. Incidentally, therefore, the concert was tinged with -Irish sentiment, notwithstanding^ the  fact that the" school children  opened with "Men of  Harlech."  Tlie valley was well represented, those liviug at a great  distance arriving in good time,  even before the door keeper  .was 011 - hand. Those people  may feel at liberty to forward  cheques for their reservations  at any time now.  The programme was,formally  opened by the singing of the  "Maple leaf" en masse; next  came "Men of Harlech," rendered in. stirring style by the  children of Keremeos.  Messrs. Smith sind Williains  upon the piano and banjo almost made us " rise to our foot  and take to dancing.  Miss King rendorod "Laddie  in Khaki" very sympathetically.  Mrs. i'lroj" l)tiiy."aei-Lnii^ijial  tor the evening, sang*" Who  Knows," which was so heartily  applauded that she was obliged  to sing an encore.   ,  Messrs. Stanton" and Kerr  rendered n lcviscd version of  "The Irish Schoolmaster." Mr.  Stanton certainly was nnoxeel-  lent schoolmtistor and wielded  his blackthorn to good pfl'oei,  for his questions were answered  promptly by Master Kerr, who  with Eton' collar and bared  knees show oil that after all he  was only an overgrown boy.  The "verses were allw-ionh to  local pcr.--.on-. and geography,  and- Master Kerr does not vet  deem it advisable to go abroad  without an armed guard.  The play, "Our Awful Aunt,"  was thu climax of the evening,  Mrs. Thomao taking the title  role ,-\vkh great success. Her  son, Buster, was the col'u'd boy  and he brought the limmodown  main <.i t.mo wich hi? r-*[-arUv  and -.-omic action--. Mi*-. Williams, and the "lii^t*.-- Gibnou  played their parts well, as did  Messrs. Prescott. and Kerr, who  were villains, which was oasy  for them. Mr. VV. H. Quant had .  had a very difficult and heavy  part to play. He tried to be  very virtuous, but alas ho.fell  into the hands of the aforementioned knaves who, however,  were captured by policemen,  Messrs. Bowen and Keeler. Mr.  Quant, we are glad to say,  swore off. The players- are  obliged to Mrs. Keeler for her  many timely prompts, and. to  all who assisted in furnishing  the stage.   -   '  When the curtain dropped  the audience applauded until  the players recognized it wasa  company call and once again  tho curtain rolled up, and the  players bowing rang dowu  again.  God Save the King concluded  the program, which would have  been completed as arranged  but for Mrs. Percy Quant having to accompany her husband,  who had been taken seriously.  ill, to Oroville. Her reading  was missed: very much, as wo  ail know the excellence of her  selections and the masterly  manner in-which they are  rendered. Refreshments woro  served.

The trouble if not taken in time will  develop slowly to a worse stage, and  there is no person more to be pitied  than one. suffering* from nervous  trouble. . You feel unaccountably  weak after exertion, lose flesh, turn  against food, and suffer palpitations  and indigestion after eating. Sometimes sharp pains shoot down your  spine and legs, and often neuralgia j dra  robs you of youf\ sleep at; night.  These are some'of the troubles that  indicate the presence of nervous disorders. If they are neglected they,  result-in a complete nervous collapse,  sometimes in paralysis. Dr. Williams'' Pink Pills have won a great  reputation in curing all forms of  nervous diseases. ��������� The nervous system depends entirely upon the blood  supply for nourishment. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills actually increase the  supply of rich,- red blood; feed,  strengthen and tone the -nerves, enabling them to perform their functions and dispel all signs of a breakdown. Mrs. B. Wainlott, Beaver  Bank, N.S., says: "I was sick, run  down and .awfully nervous. The  slightest noise would startle, and annoy inc. I suffered pains around the  heart and every particle of color left  my face .and hands. I always felt  tired, and slept poorly at night. T  was so poorly that my friends  thought I would not recover. I tried  many medicines, but thev "did not  help me. Then I read of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and decided to drop  all other medicine and try them."

And Belgium, Quaker among* nations, adopted this doctrine, dedicating herself and being dedicated to  perpetual peace. She was to assail  no one aud never io be assailed. She  was true to her high faith, yet she  is the most devastated and-desolated  ot" nations, her women outraged, her  men led into slavery, her churches  and art monuments- levelled, her  flourishing industries destroyed. No  weapon able to prosper against her?  Would it were so.  Words beautifully allocated are  pleasing to the ear. but 'when th.ev  do noi accord with fact (heir arrangement is' a vain exercise.

But the latest scientific calculation is 1,000,000,000 years. This  great difference of time arisen from  the difference of methods of calculation. The first-named period 's  reached through geological estimates,  founded on sedimentation and stratum formation.  The longer period is reached  through the retroactive effects of  uranium and its related elements. It  has taken all this time for uranium  to produce . .crystallization' which  possesses creative force. The longer  period is the estimate of chemistry,  the shorter period, of geology, but as  there is no geology without chemistry, the scientific world .is. turning lo  uranium as the controlling element  in the building of the earfli,- and the  period of its retroactive agency constitutes the age of.the eartli.

L. Keen correspondent of lhe  United Press in London, reviews tho  year. 1916 as follows:  John Bull spent' a goodly portion  of 1916 applying the lesons he  learned  the previous year.  From the Dardanelles to Mesopotamia, from A'cuvc C'hapcllc io Loos,  . from Sotia" to Athens, he blundered  'along, but, as subsequent hisrory h;*s  demonstrated, all the lime acquiring  merit. Out of every strategic lai.ure,  every unfulhlled expectation,' both  military and political, he managed to  learn something; aud the* lessons  stuck.  First of all the lessons of centralized pow.er in ,the direction of war,  of internal government, ot domesne  economy and of clliciency, thoroughly  learned, led him to put David Lloyd  George into a practical dictatorship  over ad tnose branches of British activity.  " "  The Asquith Cabinet fell because  .British puuuc opinion, almost .soiidly  aligned behind "tlie little Welshman,"  demanded supreme cmcicncy^iu England's light tor life". Jt was characteristic of Mr. Lloyd George, the  ��������� breaker of precedent, that lie -.hould  sweep away nearly all the old ministerial machinery and substitute for'  the loosely-knit, slow-moving, ovcr-  . otticered Cabinet, a small, compact  war council "of live, members ��������� ard  take this step with the eager acquiescence of John Bull. And John Bull,  who usually has to be driven, and  who generally hates nc\v-*fanglcd  things, showed the transformation in  - his .character which the war has  . .wrought by .standing behind Mr.  Lloyd .George.  By reason of his early unsucccss-  ��������� ful adventures in the Near East, he  t gathered invaluable knowledge in the  ' matter of organization and equipment which he has this year applied  ���������-iii other quarters. As a result of the  ���������failure of his troops in the West in  the spring and autumn of 1915, to  attain their desired objective, he  made certain /changes in personnel,  vastly improved his organization behind the lines, and above all learned  that the only .way. seriously to-, dent  the German front ' was with a preponderating supply of shot and shell.'  He lost Bulgaria to : the allied  .cause, but the experience he acquired  in that process enabled him to gather  in Rumania. Just now, by the foi-  tunc of war,. Rumania appears to be  a doubtful military asset, if not a liability; but at the time unquestionably the enlistment of this country  with the allies was a diplomatic  stroke of first importance.  -Early in 1916 he adopted conscription. Had it been introduced a year  before/the war might have been over  todas'. Englishmen have responded  in unprecedented .fashion to their  King and country's call under the  voluntary^ system, but it was only  the certainty of ultimate conscription that finally brought the curol-  ment^ up to five million men. Tlie  molding of" this huge'lump of human  raw material into an efficient military   "machine    has been a    gigantic  task, but   its   proper- equipment lias  been a greater.  Little less than miraculous, has  been the deyelopment of the munitions industry in this country during  the last year-"*"From the star-: Britain  has been" the treasury of the allies;  now it has become their armory.  When Mr. Lloyd George began turning England's factories into arsenals,  these Germans -were manufacturing  and shooting about ten shells to tue  allies' one. There was a time when  on certain sections of the battle line  British gunners were limited to four  rounds per da)'. Upon America and  Japan Britain was depending for the  most pari of its supplies of mac'imc  guns, heavy artillery and ' high explosives. Now these conditions are  all reversed. More than -1,000 private  firms in England, 95 per cent. ��������� of  whom before lhe war had never produced a gun, a shell or a cartridge,  now are turning * out munitions of  one sort or' another:..  Just after the-Munitions Act was  passed, Mr. Lloyd George startled  the country by announcing that  eleven new government arsenals had  been provided for. Today there are  more than ninety, most of 'them producing big guns, howitzers or hiu.h  explosives. The wcc-kly output of  shell cartridges is now- greater by  millions than England's entire annual output before the war. A new  type of machine-gun is being turned  out by the hundred every week in  one factory built in the last yc*jrr.  The general output of heavy artillery  has increased ' -by several hundred  per cent. ��������� The total number" ot war  workers has increased to nearly four  million, of whom half a million arc  women.  Practically the whole of England's  vast industrial resource's, except  those necessary for the supply "of the  civil population, have been mobilized  for war purposes. Every factory in  the land, if called upon, is- required  lo devote at least part of its activities to turning- out war material.  Tlie proportion of .munitions now fiu-  nished by America and Japan has  become-'almost negligible.  Moreover, England is not merely  supplying her own big armies. She  has had to help out Russia, France  and Italy, especially the first-named.  It has been largely dtic to "English  guns and English .shells that.'. the  Russians have been able lo put the  Germans on the defensive. Large  quantities of English munitions were  sent also to Rumania, and the Serbian army would doubtless still be  lighting for Monastir had it not been  thoroughly rc-cquipped by Great  Britain.  * Giving all due credit to the allied  strategy in general and to Gen.  Haig's military genius in particular,  as well as to the admitted improvement of Tommy as a fighting proposition, and the present superiority  of the British air service, there is,;  after all, only one answer for the re  cent successes along the, Somme and  the Ancre���������munitions. The lessons  of Yprcs, "Neuve Chapcllc and Loos  have been well learned.

Martin Burrcl!, Minister of  Agriculture, iu the Agricultural Gazette, nSakcs a further appeal to - the  farmers of Canada lo increase production. Mis appeal, which is addressed to "the man on the laud," is  as  follows:  "For two years and a half, war, red  and ruinous, has raged through the  world, and still no decision has been  reached. There is reason to hope  that bcfor.c 1917 closes the struggle  for liberty will have been won or be  grially advanced. Amid the varying  phases of .this titanic conflict the fact  stands' out more clearly than ever  that agriculture is of supreme importance. Extraordinary measures are  being taken by the allied countries to  increase'" and encourage production.  It is earnestly hoped that every farmer iu Canada will strive lo increase  the food supply of the empire. A  still powerful and unscrupulous enemy-openly, avows its intention to l.ry  and. sink all ships carrying supplies  to. England during, the coming year.  In the tremendous strain yet to come  a vital factor will be. an "ample and  unfailing;flow- of food to,England and  ���������'France.- No matter what difficulties,  may face us, the supreme duty of  every man pn the land is touseevcry  thought aud every energy- in the direction of producing' more, and* still  more."  NO PEACE BASIS UNTIL GERMANS  KNOW WHAT THE FIGHTING IS FOR  TO KEEP INTACT THE HOHENZOLLERN DYNASTY  When the German People Finally Realize They Are Not Fighting  For the Freedom of Germany, but Their, Own Continued  -  Political Submission, a Reaction May.be Expected  o-  Dream Came True  - - \  Young Lady in a Dream Saw  Her  Fiance Wounded  . One of", the most vivid stories of  warning by dreams is told bya young  lady who dreamed, that she saw her  fiance in tlie trenches preparing for  a raid. In her dream the young lady  saw him, with many others, climb out  of the British trenches, cross No  Man's Laud, and enter the enemy's  lines. Her dream became confused  for a moment, and then quite plainly  she saw him climb on to the parapet  of. the German trench and- fall forward wounded. A big man came up,  took the wounded man on his shoulder, and carried him back to the  British lines. The young lady awoke  feeling very alarmed, and the next  day wrote lo her fiance for news. A  few days afterwards she received a  letter from him, in hospital, stating  that on the night oi her dream, -ibout  midnight, lie was one of a raiding*  party, composed of English and New  Zealanders, and was wounded while  standing* on the top of the German  trench. A big Alaori carried him  back to the British lines, exactly as  the young lady had pictured in her  dream.  More Cattle Enter Canada  The. total number of cattle entering  Canada from the United States  through the port of. North Portal  during the year 1916 was approximately five times as many as came  through the same port during 1915.  From present indications based upon  inquiries reaching veterinary and  customs departments, the year 1917  will equal, if not surpass, the record  years of 1911-12.  If Germans wish lo know why tlie  sentiment of the allies is so inhospitable lo peace, let them, read their  Kaiser's New Year's proclamation to  his army and navy.  The Kaiser tells the-German people  that they have been "victorious in  all theatres of war on land_ and sea."  The campaign in Rumania is describ-.  ed as "our recent triumphal march."  "The greatest naval battle this year  was our victory in the Skagerrak," m  which the German Heel retired lo its  base and left the British in command  of the sea. ''The gallant deeds of-our  submarines have secured for my navy  glory and admiration for ever." "God  also in the future will be with us."  The Kaiser could hardly say more  if the British navy were at the bottom  of the sea aiid the German troops  were in possession of London, Paris,  Pclrograd and Rome.- That sort of  rhetoric may be admirably" adapted  to the business of fooling all of the  Germans some of the timeand same  of the Germans all of the lime, but it  is no"r. a preliminary lo peace conferences.  For dynastic reasons it is necessary to make the German people believe that they have won the war. aud  that any peace which Germany may  propose is a victorious peace;''but  there will be no peace on that basis.  France will die first.  Assuming that there is an honest  desire for peace iu Germany, no progress will be made until the Kaiser  and the responsible statesmen of  Germany begin to talk the language  of peace and stop talking the language of conquest.* Xo nation can br: g  itself into victory. There must be  Germans of sufficient sanity to know  that the Kaiser's proclamation is a  piece of imperial demagogy; that Germany is not victorious, and at 1> st  can achieve only a stalemate at incalculable sacrifices of blood and treasure. -They must know that the Kaiser's boasts arc a form of treason to  Germany; in that they; give aid ard  comfort to the enemy bj- luaidiig the  allies more determined than ever lb  see the war-through' to tlie bitter end.  Yet the .German's tolerate it, ard  the fact that they tolerate "it is the  strongest .justification that tlie AlHes  ca'n present for their refusal lo entis  a peace conference. Great Britain aud  France have not been asked to* make  peace with the German people, but  with the ���������Hohcnzollcrn dynasty and  with Junkertum. Such a peace can  be at best only a .truce.  It may flatter German pride to believe, that Germany has been "victorious in all theatres of war on land and  on sea," but that sort of pride must  be paid for, and it will be paid for.  What tlie German people are actually  fighting for is not a German victory,  but a,means of so placating (heir own  vanity that they will hot be tempted  to revolutionize their government  when the war is over. They do not  know it, but they may rest assured  that the Kaiser knows it and the  Chancellor knows it, and all Junkertum knows it.  The Imperial Government would  immediately offer most liberal terms  of peace if it could be certain that  when the reaction came there would  be no change in the German alli'ud--  towards the throne and the doctrine  of Divine right This is not the first  time that a great people has battled  desperately to insure its own political  servitude and to save itself from freedom, and it may not be the last. -But  there can be no basis for a permanent  peace until the Germans themselves  begin to understand what they are  really lighting for, which is not freedom for Germany, but their own continued political submission to the mediaeval system that plunged them into this war.���������New York World.

Plans for the-Next War  Germany Making Plans for Another  War When She Is Better  Prepared  A.-very useful commentary upon  Germany's peace proposals is furnished by an article reproduced herewith which appeared in December in  the Lokal Anzeigcr of Berlin, a semiofficial newspaper:  "We began this war a year too  soon. When wc have secured a German peace we must begin at once a  reorganization upon a broader, firmer  basis, than ever before.

Training the  Farm Girl  Incieasing  the Culture  of the  Home  and Raising the Standard  of  Farm  Life  If the future country home-makers  of Western Canada���������by which 's I  meant the young men and women approaching "the age of marriage and  of starting up for themselves���������do, not  enter upon their several occupations  with a great deal more training than  the majority of the previous generation, and alsQA with a deeper sense of  responsibilit5;; it will not be. the fault  i oi Western Canada's educational system. Each of the three'western provinces has a splendid system of *igri-  itiltural education, in Manitoba and  Saskatchewan in connection with inc.  respective agricultural colleges, and  in Alberia in connection with bol'i  an agricultural college and-with a  system of agricultural school-;.  Not that we mean that the older  people do not know their, business,  or regard the problem of home-making as a frivolous one. Dad's proverbial attitude towards the agricultural college, that it puts a lot of  ologies and isms into the boy's head  and doesn't tcadi him how to milk a  cow or lo hustle in a crop, has occasionally more in it than,a-mere comic paper joke; but if wc grant that  the agricultural education sometimes has its abuses, it does not detract from the main purpose^���������that ,t  better race of farmers is being produced, who, with the same materials  that their parents possessed, .viU  produce better results because of  their greater knowledge of the possibilities  of agriculture. ���������  This is correspondingly true of the  farmer's daughter. While the boy ob-  lained (sometimes grudgingly, it is  true) the best agricultural education  possible in the farmer's means, lhe  girl has been too much neglected.  That she needs education in those departments thai make for more efficient and more comfortable homes has  often been .before the fond parent's vision. Yet lhe farmer's daughter carries upon her back some of the most  serious burdens of . an agricultural  country. Her part in the establishment "of the community is by no  means a small one; and according to  the atmosphe're that she creates, the  success or failure of the individual  can very often be traced. The city  housewife has the benefit of all the  time and labor-saving devices . that  take the drudgery out of housework  and "transform it into a service    that  willingly    rendered as    an agreed  Coal in Saskatchewan  260,000 Tons of Coal Mined as Compared   With  240,107   During  the Previous Year  Two hundred and sixty thousand  Ions of coal were mined in Saskatchewan during the year 1916. a*.  compared with 240,107 in the twelve  months of 1915. Saskatchewan stands  fourth among the provinces of'-Canada in point of coal production; it  is exceeded by British Columbia, Alberta and Nova Scotia./    <  The Dominion department of mines  has received from the principal coal  operalors in Canada returns of their  production for , ten months, supplemented in most cases with estimates  for  November and December.  On the basis of the record available, it is estimated that the total  the calendar year 1916 will approximate 14,365,000 short tons (equivalent to 12,825,892 gross Ions). The  estimate is believed lo be fairly close  for Nova Scolia and British Columbia.- In Alberta, however, there are  so many small operators that filled  returns may show a wider variation  from  the  estimates now made.  The 1916 production exceeded that  of the two previous years, the increase over 1915 being about S per  cent. Nova Scolia is apparently the  only province that has not made an  increased production, the falling-otf  in this province being a little let-s  than 8 per cent The increase in  Alberta is nearly 32 per cent, and in  British Columbia nearly 27 per cer-.t.

At the Manitoba Agricultural College a Homcmakers' course is offered, extending over two winter terms  of five months each. In the first ycai  the subjects studied are household  art (clothing, drawing and design,  home ' planning, laundry, millinery,  etc.), household science (cooking,  nursing, etc.), house construction,  poultry-keeping, physical culture, elementary chemistry, English and mathematics. In the second .year, home  furnishing, physiology and hygiene  are added. Dairying and horticultme  may be studied also. Those who can  attend the college ' for one winder  term only are considered in planning  the first year's work. A three  .'months' course in April, May and  June is offered for a longer period.  An' Institutional Administration  course is planned for those who have  abalily as administrators and because  of the demand for trained directors  for the management of various kinds  of institutions.  In Saskatchewan, says Mr. Walter  Murray, president of the University,  "we have not done all that we wish  to in domestic science." Nevertheless, for four summers there have  been summer schools in this subject.  Short courses are also held every  ��������� winter in homcmakers' clubs in various parts of the province. In the  near future it is hoped to establish  a properly equipped school to minister to tlie needs of farmers' daughters who wish to come in for a  course of one or two years during the  winter months, as well as teachers.  In Alberta, in each of the three  provincial schools of agriculture  homeiuakcrs' courses arc offered, aud  each year an. increasing number of  L-irls arc taking advantage of them.  These courses are especially planned  to meet lhe needs of the rural communities. The subjects taught are  along the same lines as in the Manitoba college, and the courses are  held in the winter months.  It is difficult to over-estimate the  importance of this training upon the  young country women of Western  Canada. It not only brings increased efficiency, that tends, eventually,  to reduce the drudgery of running a  farm home and, thereby, to the cultivation of quite a different spirit towards the task; but the. social benefits, acquired by contact with a much  larger circle than the "farmer's daughter usually knows, ' will all increase  the culture of the home and raise the  sUnndard  of farm  life.  Boy Scout.Notes  Distribution ' of    Proficiency Badges  in British  Columbia  Interesting figures arc now available showing the distribution of  proficiency badges for the. past year  in British Columbia. During the  .year a total of 648 badges- were  awarded and the lists show that the  most popular is the Ambulance,  badge. This seems to be the one  badge that stands out amongst all the  others throughout Canada. Perhaps  it is on account of the Boy Scouts'  motto "Be Prepared" and that "First  Aid to the Injured" appears to be the  best way in -which to be of service  to others/Following this; badge in  popularity is the Cooks, Cyclist, Carpenter, "Swimmer, Naturalist, Fireman, Missioner," ; Musician, Handyman and Marksman. Of the foregoing,list five are King's Scout badges.  Service - to the Country is therefore  foremostin a Scout's_thought  In British .Columbia "there is one of  the finest Sea Scout troops which uses  the-late Robert Louis Stevenson's  ship "The Casco" as a training ship.  Sea Scouts have won an enviable  name for themselves during this war  and many arc to be found in His  Majesty's Navy, where they are sery-  ing with distinction. Boy Jack Corn-  well of the Chester, who stuck to his  post in the Battle of Horn Reef off  Jutland, though mortally wounded, is  a shining example of devotion to duty:  He was a Sea Scout.       '     ���������  In Canada there is ample scope for  the amateur photographer. Boy-  Scouts may- earn a proficiency badge  for this very useful and interesting-  hobby. Most boys nowadays arc possessors of cameras of some description and delight in taking snapshots.  Why not go further and develop and  finish the films and be more than ic-  paid for the work necessary. The  Photographer's badge requires that a  boy must take, develop and print 12  separate subjects, three interiors,  three portraits, three landscapes, and  three instantaneous "action" photos;  and have a knowledge of the theory  and use of lenses, the construction of  cameras, and the action of developers.  Magazines and other periodicals are  glad to secure good snapshots and  ,Boy Scouts will find it a profitable as  well as interesting hobby.

Sugar and Medicine  We Must    All Take Our    Medicine  Sooner or Later  At the close of the year most men  are given somewhat to reflection.  The older they grow the more willing they arc to accept certain events  of life as seltlcd beyond dispute. Any  man of 50 will tell you that each human being has his lump of sugar and  must also take his medicine. Usually the medicine must be taken to  counteract the- effect of the sugar.  Of course "by "sugar" we mean opportunity, .a chance to become independent though others near them  may have that curious element  which the world calls "luck." Some  use their "sugar" to sweeten their  own cup, though others near them  must drink the sour or bitter dregs  of life. Others waste their sugar as  it comes to them, and like all who  gorge on sweets, are finally confronted with the cup of medicine. No matter what wc do with our "sugar" we  must all take our medicine sooner or  later, and probably the finest test of  character comes in the way we take  it. The face we make up on taking  the dose indicates the depth and  strength of courage and philosophy.  ���������Rural New Yorker.  Field Peas as a Farm Crop  Value of Rotating Peas With Wheat  Crop Has Been Demonstrated  Field peas have been grown on the  Experimental Farm at Scott during  the past five years. *l"Jie average yield  per acre when grown on suinmerfal-  low has amounted to 29.59 bushels,  ground each year and-the average  yield per acre (29.53 bushels) is. almost equal to that obtained ,;when  wheat has been sown on summerfal-  low, whereas the average from tire  second crop of wheat after suminer-  fallow has only amounted to 22.73: bushels. In other words, an increased  yield lias been secured of 6.SO" bush-  .els per acre by sowing wheat on pea  land rather than on land that had previously grown a crop of wheal. Judging from the yield of wheat,,secured  after peas, an additional year can be  added to a rotation of crops by' using  peas in  tlie- rotation.  Peas are usually sown about the  same time as wheat with an ordinary-  grain drill on summerfallow land, at  a rate of 2 3-4 bushels per acre. The  variety used is a selection of the Arthur, made by-the Dominion Cercal-  ist. It is a medium-sized, smooth,  yellowish-white pea.  One of the difficulties put forward  as a reason why peas are not more  commonly grown is that" of the difficulty of securing labor for harvesting. * One farmer has overcome this  difficulty in some degree by harvesting with an ordinary grain binder,  when the peas are slightly "damp. After he has removed as much of the  peas as he can with the/ binder, he  turns in his hogs to harvest the remainder of the crop.  In the Scott district wet weather  prevailed during the past harvest, and  on the station the peas were left until late in the season, and then were  pulled' with an ordinary horse rake,  two men following the rake and bunching as fast as the rake could pull  them. The peas were left in bunches  for a couple of'days until dry, _ and  then were threshed with an^ordinary  threshing mill, the concave teeth having been removed. In previous years  the mower was. used to cut "the peas  and the peas lifted and bunched out  of the way of the mower. This is a  more expensive method of handling  the crop.  The reason for some light crops  that have been harvested is the absence of nitrifying bacteria. Old  land that has - been manured, or  grown potatoes or roots, usually contains a higher percentage of'suitable  bacteria than does new land. An experiment conducted this year on new  land in* inoculating peas with a_ culture of the bacteria has resulted in an  increased yield of 7.24 bushels per  acre, over a part of the same field  that had received no inoculation'." .'  Fed to milch cows, pea meal has  been found to increase the milk flow.  Fed to hogs and sheep, they are excellent for fattening purposes.  Peas mixed with oats and cut green  for hay make ah excellent forage  crop. The rate of yield on the station during the past two years has  amounted to 3 tons 1,800 pounds per  acre. While the addition of peas has  not increased the yield, it has added  to the palatibility of the fodder. The  usual rate of seeding has been one  bushel of peas and two of oats per  acre.  The importance of sowing peas on  clean land cannot be too strongly emphasized, as peas lodge late in the.  season and this usually takes place  in sufficient,.time for.any weeds that  arc present to develop into, strong  and healthy specimens, producing a  considerable  quantity of" seeds.  German Apologies  Not a Difficult Matter to Determine  Who Is Guilty of Starting  the  War  Who is responsible for the war?  Did the allies force il upon peaceful  Germany, or did "militarist" Germany force it upon reluctant Europe?  That is not to be settled by labored  statements as to the precise hour at  which successive telegrams were dispatched from Berlin to Pctrograd  aboul a premature announcement by  a Berlin semi-official newspaper that  Germany had mobilized. The statements may be true or false, or a  judicious mixture of truth and falsehood, but for the present , they rest  upon the unsubstantiated assertions  of the statesman who in a historic  interview with the British ambassador avowed' his contempt of a sworn  treaty and asked us to consider (he  price of preserving our honor.

Lyons versus Leipzig  Lyons Bids Fair to Become a Greater  Market Than Leipzig  France is not letting heroics deafen its cars when .opportunity comes  knocking at the door. For illustration, there is the Lyons fair.  The great wholesale fair of the  world before the beginning of the  war wasjield at Leipzig. But Leipzig is now walled about with_ bristling bayonets. If buyers got into it  they could not bring their purchases  away Here Lyons marches forth. It  promotes a fair that in its first year  transacted a wholesale business of  over $10,000,000 and let $8,000,000 go  for lack of ability to deliver goods.  Lyons is open. It makes the most  of that strategical position. It proposes to boom that fair until Leipzig is forgotten and the buyers of  the world will come to France instead of following the historic highway  to  Saxony.  The nrosp- 'ty of a'markct is very  often based on habit. People get accustomed to going-to it, and so long  as custom rules that market is safe  from competition. If the war keeps  up long enough buyers will acquire a  new habit, taking them to Lyons to  the distress and dismay of Leipzig,  years after.the war is over. At least,  that is what Lyons is counting on.���������  From  the Toledo  Blade.  lured to deliver her ultimatum to  Serbia, well knowing that "the, step  wo"*uld inevitably provoke Russian intervention, had she not been assured  beforehand of- Germany's,.

AAre we to be asked  to believe that Austria was the predominant partner dictating the policy  of the central powers', and that Germany could not but follow humbly  in her wake? The ultimatum was  the first in the chain of the niore  immediate causes of the war. Who  encouraged Austria to dispatch il?  All the evidence on that matter has"  not yet been disclosed.- In the whole  published correspondence between  the central powers that is not a single 'document to show what were the  counsel Berlin gave Vienna iu the  most fateful period of the crisis.

Why are  those which they exchanged hetween  the German declaration of war and  the Austrian declaration of war also  shrouded from the public eye? Germany delivered her ultimatum to  Russia on July 31. Austria did not  hand in hers until August 6. What  was the meaning of this, delay? How-  does it tally with the German contention that it was Russian aggression on Austria which forced her to  draw the sword? How does the text  of the belated Austrian declaration  fit in with this theory? In that document Austria assigns as her reason  for going to war with Russia, not  any alleged wrongs which Russia had  done to her, but solely the fact that  Germany was already at war .with  Russia. She represents Germany as  the principal, and herself merely as  Germany's ally.���������London  Times.

It has its  own internal network of railways,  running to and from the various  branches of Krupps, and as the  trains pass across the streets they  naturally block the traffic for some  minutes. The trains are almost continuous and the pedestrians' progress  is slow, but it is exciting, for it is  here in Essen' that one realizes what  it means to be at war with Germany..  If the resolution of the German  people were as rigid as the steel in  the great cranes and rolling mills,  lhe allied  task would be  impossible.  But anyone reading these" lines,  who has had prolonged contact with  Germans, knows that Germans are  not "last ditchers" by comparison  with the very best of the allied  troops, the French 20th corps, your  Guards, the pick of the Anzacs,  Canadians and others. They will  struggle tenaciously and magnificently up to a certain limit. But at  a certain point,.a point yet far dis?  tant, they give in with curious non-  resistance.

Deceased Writer Saw Naked Simplicities of Our-Complicated  Civilization  Though Jack London's books are  entertaining to one seeking entertainment alone, London did t ot write  merely as a simple story teller. His  intellect was forever grappling' with  problems ��������� heredity, environment,  the unequal distribution of wealth,  the attempt of the brute to live in an  artificial civilization. London was a  Socialist, but he was a Socialist of  action, not a passive one. His..theory  of life was summed up with a clear-  cut emphasis in his remark, "I would -  rather be .ashes' than dust."  ��������� London believed intensely in "living-  while he was here. His remark meant  that he would rather be the cold arid  lifeless remnant of what had once  veen a vital fire than to . be some-1-  thing that was permanent but1, without a present or a past of action and  worth. "     "       ��������� -  The  story of how London became  a writer was told in a' little message  entitled, "What Life    Means to Mc,"-  which    London   wrote in explanation  of his   Socialistic views.       In  it     he ���������  said:  "I was scared into' thinking. I saw  the naked simplicities of the complicated civilization in which I lived.  Life was a matter of -food and shelter. vIn order lo get food and shelter  men sold things. The merchant sold,  shoes, the politician sold his-manhood, and the representative of tne  people, with "exceptions, ��������� of course, -'  sold his trust; while nearly all sold  their 'honor. Women, too, whether  on the street or in the holy Loud of  wedlock, were prone to soil their  flesh. All things were commodities,  all people bought and sold. The one  commodity that labor had to sell was -  muscle. The honor of labor had no  price in the market. Labor had muscle, and  muscle alone,  to sell.     ���������������������������  "But there was a difference, a vital  difference. Shoes.-- and trust and  honor had a way of renewing themselves. " They -��������� were imperishable  stocks. Muscle, on-the other hand,  did not renew. As the shoe merchant  sold shoes, he continued' to replenish  his stock. But there was no way of"  replenishing the laborer's stock cf  muscle. The more he sold of his  muscle thejess of it remained to him.  It was his one commodity, and each  day his stock of it diminished. In  the end, if he did not die. before, he  sold out and put up his shutters. He*  was a muscle bankrupt, an.l i othing  remained to him'but to go down into  the cellar of society and perish miserably.  "I, learned, further, that brain was  likewise a commodity. It, loo, was"  different from muscle. A' brain'seller  was only at his prime when he was  50 or 60 years old, and his wares were  fetching higher prices than ever. But  a laborer was worked out or broken  down at 45 or 50. I had been in the  cellar of society, and I did not like  the'place as a habitation. The pipes  and drains were insanitary, aud the  air was bad lo breathe. If I could not  live on the parlor floor of society, 1  could, at any rate, have a try al the  attic._ It was true, the diet there" was  slim, "but the air at least was pure.  So I resolved to sell no more muscle,  and lo  become  a vendor of brains."  London reached and found entrance into the "parlor floor" of society, but he found it not to his liking. There were things artificial,  wrong, foolish there, he found, and  so he went back to his own kind. He  "tells of his return and of the .isiou  that led him:  "So I went back lo the working  class, in which I had been born anil  where I belonged. I care no longer  to climb. The imposing edifice of society above my head holds no delights for me. It is the foundation of  the edifice that interests me. There  I am content to labor, crowbar in  hand, shoulder to shoulder villi intellectuals, idealists and class-conscious workingmen, getting a solid  pry now and again and setting tiie  whole edifice  rocking.  "Some day, when we get a few  more hands and crowbars to work,  we'll topple it over, along with ail us  rotten life* and unburied dead, its  monstrous selfishness and sodden  materialism. Then we'll cleanse the  cellar and build a new habitation for  mankind, in which there will be no  parlor floor, in which all the looms  will be bright, and- airy, and where  the air that is breathed will be clean,  noble and alive."

The Truth  About Weeds  Freedom   of Land From   Weeds an  Evidence of  Good  Farming  The following extract was .enl !o  us a few days ago by the manager  ,of a large trust and mortgage com-  ��������� pany, with a request for a criticism  on the views therein contained/ Personally, although he was not a farmer, he felt "it was not quite all right  and that its teaching could not be  squared with that of recognized agricultural authorities."  Extract from an article by Henry  Ford on "System," November, 1916:  '"The great trouble in business today is that most people are so busy  .doing a variety of things that they  have not time to get a real grip of  anj- one thing.* ,.,-.     .      ,.,...  "Weeds are a very good illustration. For centuries people ' have  thought -^weeds were perfectly useless. .Farmers have spent time and  N'money pulling them .up, 'burning  them up, anything lo get rid ,of  -them.  . "Now'comes.a man who.Jias been  thinking about weeds, -analyzing  ihcm and experimenting, and what  -does he find? That weeds are the  ,. Lest "fertilizer;^ and-Hthat instead of  spending* money lo enrich his fields,  .all the farmer has.-to do is to  plough the -weeds under.  t "Think of all the _ money spent,  lime-wasted,, in"* destroying weeds  which contain the '.very chemicals  the farmer lias been buying'in fertilizers; all because- the f. .*mer took  it for granted that weeds were his  enemy and .never stopped to do  some special thinking."  .To' .the thoughtful, intelligent,-  practical farmer- this-article, will be  quickly disposed of as rubbishy written by ���������one who has not the. faintest practical knowledge' of farming.  But because -it contains, a few half-  truths it may prove somewhat unsettling to certain minds who fail  to disentangle the facts from'"the  false    reasoning    and the aPogether  - f-i roneous' deductions. Wc may,  therefore, briefly consider the mo-c  salient points in the argument-"advanced by this writer.  Weeds are' plants, but plants in  .-the  wrong place when found  on the  -..farm. Like all plants that are turned under, weeds most certainly decompose and    eventually    return    to  " the soils, their ."elements J:o become  part and parcel of the soil to feed  successive .plants. All farmers know  this, but they do not on that account  sow weeds to enrich their soil.  Weeds are weeds because- they are  found in fields of grain, of hay and  other crops, robbing the crop of soil  moisture, of light, of air that would  otherwise   go1 to   nourish   and   dcvcl-  - op the crop. In this way weeds not  Qiily lessen ihc yiell of the 'valuable field crop but reduce the value  of the product by their presence, at  limes making it practically worthless. They "-starve and choke the  crop and furthermore markedly reduce ihe value of the product. This  is how weeds injure -the farmer.  Hay full of thistles, and grain with  numerous    weed  -seeds    are    exam-  ��������� pies.  From reading the article one might  suppose that weeds occur only in  ��������� iv inemselves. When such a  '.condition-.'.-.does- occur on any large  area, either through neglect or on  .an Amworked surhmerfallow, ������������������-.'.or  through,    not   'practising a  rotation,  ! the -best -and only- plan of reclamation of .the area, is. by ploughing  .the weeds under and subsequently  putting iii a crop that allows.a thorough cultivation of the soil. But  there is nothing new in this; every  farmer's boy ought to know this is  the only course. If by this method  the weeds can be got rid of, so much  the better, ;and, we admit, incidentally the soil is thereby improved.  Unfortunately, despite    the... best en-  ; deavors, only too frequently there  .are running root stalks (as in couch  grass) and seeds left alive (as with  mustard) in the soil, that grow weeds  to injure successive crops. Persistent cultivation of the soil in such  a case will be necessary over a term  of years, to rid the land of these  lobbcrs. " .  But when the weeds occur, as is  their habit, in field crojjs, as in  grain and hay, would the writer of  this article advise ploughing the  whole thing under,, to obtain the fertilizing value of the weeds? No;  unless the weeds were in such  abundance as to absolutely ruin the  crops, "the wheat and the tares  must grow together until the harvest."   -  With "hoed" crops���������corn, roots,  etc., the cultivator is kept going  throughout the growing season to destroy weed growth and preserve the  soil moisture for the crop ��������� and every farmer knows that this is good  practice.     ��������� *  If the article means anything it  counsels growing weeds to Enrich  the land. This would be rank heresy. The science and practise of  farming alike pronounce such a doctrine as absolutely fallacious. There  are crops that can be grown for enriching the soil, as, for instance,  clover, but in this class wc do not  find "weeds" useless plants when  grown ��������� plants "which during iheir  growth deprive the legitimate crop  of its food supply and at the hnr-  vest seriously depreciate Mic value  of. the product.  We might elaborate this criticism  from several standpoints���������as for instance the inference that weeds  should be grown rather than fertilisers  bought ���������; but perhaps     enoup/i  ' has' been said to show that such  teaching as is implied is erroneous  and harmful. The. farmer is quite  right in thinking weeds arc his enemies, that they 'are a curse, diminishing the yields of his valuable  crops, and - seriously reducing the  value of such, as food for eitlier man  or beast. An evidence of good farming���������one of the best is the freedom  of the land from weeds. Such a eor-  dition can only result from using  clean seed, a right rotation of oops  and the proper working, cultivation  of the soil.���������Frank T. Shutr, D.Sc,  Dominion Chemist.  Special Study Planned  By Grain Gro wer  General Welfare and Development of  Organization Is Being Sought ���������  For the Saskatchewan Grain  Growers'' Association, the .provincial  special study committee .has sent out  recommendations " for -educational  work to the -local secretaries. The  work will primarily' take the form of  special study of public questions before debating circuits can be, formed  as recommended.  The special study branch of the  organization department of the Saskatchewan Grain Growers' Association is instituted to promote the  study and discussion of economic  general welfare and development of  higher  and  broader  citizenship.  Any local intending to participate  in this line of endeavor should appoint a-special study committee '".ith  its own secretary. t  To conduct, study, participate" in  debates and discussions and to pro~-  mote literary, social and other activities. "Special study" committee  will assist in the work of the local  by conducting research work and examining and recommending suitable  books,., public ,.documcnts and fugitive literature, supplying references  for desired information and making  suggestions for study and debates.  -Each local is advised to provide  itself with books and documents and  other means useful for conducting  work, and also to provide a fund for  the prompt purchase of necessary-  books -and other supplies in advance  of need,  Any local with a little time and  trouble and a trifling expense may  build up a reference library of incalculable value by a systematic filing of- press clippings, public documents, pamphlets and other fugitive  literature. A wide range should be  left for local initiative in collateral  activities. Locals should be free to  take lip any subjects of local interest or importance. Light entertainment, especially music, is desirable, but should not be permitted to  interfere"with the main purpose. An  occasional evening, given entirely to  social enjoyment will.afford a desirable relaxation and stimulate'.., the  neighborhood spirit.*-  Whenever'a promising line of activity is instituted, it should be reported to the secretary of the provincial special study committee for  the -enlightenment of other locals in  turn.  A question box open to all topics  germane to the subject at bund is an  invaluable adjunct to the local meeting.  It is suggested that the first local  in any community deciding to take  up this work may immediately endeavor to get neighboring locals similarly started. As soon'as the second  is'formed the two many arrange, if  possible, to hold their first joint debate at a -third school nearby, ai*mT  ing to institute the work there before  adjourning. In this 'way organization work can be extended until the  eiitire -community isSncluded.  Locals may be, grouped into circuits of convenient number for the  purpose of holding a series of point  debates; such as circuits to be under the management of , a circuit  committee. - *  Circuit committee may be composed of one member of the'educational  committee from each local and shall  appoint one member "corresponding  s'ecretary.  The   district . director   is   expected |  to   co-operate  with   the   circuit   committee in every way tending to  promote this work.  Canada and- the  Beef Problem  England Free of Gypsies  Wandering   Bands   Have   All   Been  Forced to Work  The last remnants of a gypsy band  that has wandered aimlessly about  England for years was rounded up  in Sheffield recently, one man being  mustered into the army and three  others ^imprisoned for petty theffs.  The Scotland Yard men, who trailed  and finally caught the wanderers, believe they have put an end to the  gypsy business, at least for the duration of the war.

Tricks in All Trades  "Have you ever had any experience  in handling high-class ware?" asked  a dealer- in bric-a-brac of an applicant for work.  "No, sir," was the reply, "but 1  think I  can do it."  "Suppose," said the dealer, "you  accidentally broke a very valuable  porcelain vase, what would you do?"  "I should put it carefully together,"  replied the man, "and set it where a  wealthy customer would be sure to  knock it over again."  All Three  Western* Provinces  Show  Large Increases in Number of  Livestock Raised  With the price of beef and other  meats soaring to hitherto unheard-of  heights, and every newspaper carrying stories about the future prices of  boots and shoes.: and Other articles  made of leather, there may be a modicum of comfort to be taken from the  fact that the farmers and lanchers  of Western Canada are novv turning  their attention to "cattle and stock  raising to an extent that would not  have been believed possible a few  years ago.  The matlcrn farmer is very vide  awake, especially those of the three  prairie provinces of Canada, and na-  turaly as soon as he saw the prices  of livestock- soaring on lhe large  world markets he began to pay more  attention to stock raising, a-radua1y  finding as he did so that by combining it with the grain production he  was able-to make two profits where  he hithexlo had one.  According to figures given in the  Census and Statistics Bulletin issued by' the' department of trade and  comerce at Ottawa, all three of the  western provinces show large increases in the number of livestock  taised in 1916 as compared with 1913,  the year previous fto the war. Although there had been a slight gradual increase in the years immediately preceding 1913, all "classes of livestock except swine show greater percentage of increase in the years after  the commencement of the war than  those previous. The figures for hogs  show a decrease, due' to the several  large war orders 'received by some of  the western packing firms from the  allies. One firm alone is said to have  received an order for ham and bacon  that called for 350,000 head of hogs.  Sheep is one of the outstanding features of the government report. The  increase is approximately 30 per  cent, which is very gratifying. Many  of the smaler farmers of the west  have started small flocks of sheep as  they have found out that the climate  is very suitable to them, provided a  certain amount of shelter was supplied during the short periods when  the weather might otherwise be too  severe.  There arc several large flocks in  the west, and the success that the  owners of these have "met with has  prompted the smaller farmers to  start flocks. As an excellent price  was obtained for. wool this year, ranging as high as 36 cents a pound", and  averaging ten pounds of wool .per  animal, the industry thus received  another impetus. One sheep own-r  in Alberta was offered $12.00 per  head for his entire flock of 6,000  head. He refused the offer and also  another of $7.50 per head for 1,600  lambs. A short time after refusing  these offers he purchased another  500 ewes.  The report estimates that there  are at the present time 2,048,354 cattle in the three western provinces,  565,709: being milch cows and the  balance' beef and other cattle. This  shows an increase of nearly 15 per  cent, over 1913, and also the verv  large number of beef cattle that have  been marketed during the past couple  of years must be taken into consideration. Many '-'-ge war orders were  filled in Western Canada.  The Dominion and provincial governments and . the Canadian Pacific  Railway through its agricultural and  animal industry^ branch, have all aid-  ed the farmers in every possible way,  and liaye published broadcast literature, showing the best results that  have been obtained on the various  experimental and demonstration  farms. The Canadian Pacific has several of these farms throughout the  west, with an expert in charge of  each, and at every cattle sale these  farms are represented by animals of  a very high class, both for breeding,  milch.and beef animals. The experts  in charge of these farms will at all  times aid in anyway they can the  farmer who seeks advice with reference to the best stock to go iti for  and also the proper way to secure  the greatest results  As an instance of the demand for  good breeding stock, eight-one head  of Shorthorn cattle realized %27,-  620 at a sale recently held at Calgary, Alta. The top price obtained  was $885, which was paid for a thoroughbred bull, while are average  price was $340, and when it is known  that 65 of these animals were under  eighteen months old, it will be seen  that they were a fine lot of animals.  While there is no prospect of *-an  immediate reduction in the price of  meat as a result of the increased interest displayed by the fanners  of the west, the prairies of the  Canadian west have unlimited room  for the raising of all kinds of livestock, a"nd with the farmers taking a  greater interest in livestock than ever  before, Canada is destined to phy :t  large part in solving the meat problem which the world now faces, and  which is likely to become s'cill more  acute at the close of _ the war when  European countries will be buying  animals to replenish their herds.  Conditions Grow  Worse in Germany  Food    Situation    Has^, Reached    an  Acute Intensity  D. T. Curtin, the United State?  writer who has been giving the London Times the" result of ten. months  of observation in Germany, recently  received from a source in Germany  the following report of conditions as  they were at the end of October:  "Disappointment is felt in official  circles at the failure to. bring about  a separate peace with Russia. This  was confidently looked forward to,  as was the fall of Verdun. Russia  has stood firm against immense pressure and promises.  "Since you left Germany thc_ food  situation has reached an acute intensity, which could only be explained  in a very long communication. The  keen eagerness of the thrust into  Rumania indicates the condition of  the German Jarder.  ."More .and more sugar is being  used in the munition factories, and  an increasing quantity of'milk for the  .manufacture of' glycerine used for  making explosives. The infant age-  limit for milk has been reduced ito  four years in many districts. There  is a growing dissatisfaction among  mothers in consequence. -It is urged  that infants and invalids should be  provided with milk in priority to  munition * factories. The richer Germans/ the army, the navy, and the  aristocracy are not .suffering. The-  chief burden of the shortage is falling upon the middle classes, for the  poor are being more and more supplied by the communal kitchens.  Cocoa is still coming in in large  quantities, but it is not allowed to he  sold pure. It is now heavily adulterated with flour or starch.

Brood mares on the Experimental Station at Scott arc grade Clydesdales, one weighing approximately  1,350 pounds, the other 1,550 pounds.  The marcs are'worked until foaling  time, and arc then rested for two  weeks. Later they are used to.do  light work on the farm. The colts  arc'kept'in the barn wdicn the mares  arc at work.*--When not at work, the  mares and colts run in the pasture and  are fed a little grain in addition to the  pasturage. The colts are weaned  when about five months old.  The daily/rations for weanling colts  have been about/as follows:  Morning���������-11-4 pounds of oat chop,  1-2 pound of bran, 4 pounds of prairie  hay.-."- . ������������������;." '-.���������':'  Noon���������11-4 pounds of oat chop, 1-2  pound of bran, 3 pounds alfalfa hay.  Night���������1-2  sheaf    oats,    with    oat  straw.     ���������  On two nights of the week, the  oat slTeaf is replaced with two pounds  of boiled oats. Salt is given in the  feed three times per week. The colts  are watered three times daily.  Fed as indicated, the cost of feed  for one colt for 4 1-2 months during  the past winter, amounted to $14.06.  During the period the colt gained  115 pounds, and at-1 year old weighed 820 pounds. The colt a year older  was fed. twice the_ quantity of oal  chop, and in addition one pound of  alfalfa hay. The oat straw is.also  increased for the older colts.  Colts up to two years of age are  sheltered during the winter, and only  allowed out for an hour's exercise  every day. This has been found to  give larger colts than where they are  allowed to run out in the open fields  during the day and stabled at nights.  As an illustration of this, one colt was  allowed to run out in,-the day during  the first, second and third winters. A  full brother, of inferior'conformation,  was allowed out during the fust winter but during the second winter was  kept iu the barn and given good feed.  The latter colt weighed as much at  two years as the first did, at three  years. Where protection is afforded,  either by trees, hills, or a high board  fence, etc., the colts would no doubt  do equally well outside, but on the  open plains, without shelter of any  kind, the colts are chilled by the  strong winds, if left out for too long  a period, and do not make as satisfactory gains. In order to overcome  this difficulty, light, roomy, box stalls  'should be provided in wcli-ventilated  stables, giving the colts an opportunity to take some exercise inside, and  tliis, when supplemented by an hour  in the paddock, will keep them healthy  and their limbs in good shape.  Deprived of Resources, Brave Country Husbanded Man-Power and  Aided Her Colleagues  Fiance was deprived of 50 per cent,  of her resources in coal, 90 per cent,  of her iron ore and 80 per cent of  her iron and steel manufacturing establishments by the German invasion.  At the same time- the developments  of the war multiplied her needs of  precisely the things which those resources supplied. Official figures just  furnished to the Associated' Press  show how, cripple'd as she was,  France metamorphosed her remaining industries and improvised <��������� new  ones so as to utilize lo the maximum  her remaining resources, not only  supplying her own army, but handing Over nearly a quarter of her. output in arms and munitions to herfal-  lics. France has supplied to the Belgians, Russians, Italians, Serbians  and Rumanians great quantities of  such arms' and munitions as she has  manufactured herself and has abandoned to her allies- a considerable  portion of what she bought abroad.  "The cessions* of war supplies  France has made to her allies are not  regarded as sacrifices," an officer of  the general staff says. "We simply  delegate thus a part of our cneigies  lo those who are-iu a situation to employ them to the best advantage."  Of its total production since lhe  beginning of the war, France has  turned over to its allies quantities  that represent the following proportions:  Rifles, 30 per cent; cartridges,22  per cent.; field gun shells, 20 per  cent;- heavy artillery ammunition, 20  per cent; trench mortars, - 13 per  cent; hand grenades, 27 1-2 per cent;_  protecting masks against suffocating  gas, 10 per cent; powder, 8 per cent;  other explosives, 5 per cent  A French officer says that up to  October 16, France had supplied Russia with more than 600,000 rifles and  more than 300,000,000 cartridges, sent  her several hundred pieces of heavy-  artillery, millions of projectiles for  field guns, millions of hand-grenades,  and thousands of airplane motors.  "French technical experts and specialists were also sent to Russia to  intensify the home production," he  said. "There arc now 22 officers of  the subaltern officers and_ soldiers c i  the French army occupying important posts in Russian munition factories."  The most important French mission sent to. Russia was' that headed  by Colonel Pyot, who transformed  into munition factories a great many  establishments that had not previously worked for national defence.  Raw materials and coal have been  sent in large quantities from Europe",  to Italy, together with a number* of  batteries of heavy artillery with a  supply of shells to go with it. Besides  keeping up the provision of projectiles for these heavy guns, France  furnished Italy with a considerable  number of charged 3-inch shells and  engaged to supply regularly several  thousand empty shells per day.. Five  hundred thousand helmets, 40,000  trench shields, more than 100 trench  mortars, hundreds of tons of aluminum and chemical products, "were  among other things furnished to Italy  while a French flying corps constitutes the defence of Venice against  Austrian  air  attacks. -,-���������.������������������  "From -the end of 1914 until the  evacuation 6f Serbia, France supplied'  the Serbian artillery with 2,000 3-  inch shells, per day. After the retreat  it was ;France : that undertook the  transportation, and the reconstitution  of the Serbian army at Corfu. The  armament and ammunition were furnished exclusively by France and  were identical with those of the  French divisions; the rest of the material and supplies were furnished in  common by France and Great Britain. One hundred and fifty vessels  were required for the transportation  constituting another privation lo  France, in such dire need of better  ocean transportation facilities. Seventy-six voyages were required for the  entire operation and it was accomplished without a single incident.  France also supplied entirely the  Rumanian army with war material  and munitions from the day of its entry into the war. ....  Britain Favors Daylight Saving  The London Times prints a forecast of the report of the committee  which has investigated the results of  last year's daylight saving. It says  the evidence taken shows that opinion overwhelmingly favors making  the plan general in 1917. There is  almost a consensus among the interests which had the most difficulties  because of the setting of the -clocks  ahead that the disadvantages vanished in practice and that those thai remained were far outweighed by tte  advantages obtained. The Tim.\s  says it is virtually certain that t'no  daylight-saving plan will be renewed  in 1917, but that it is likely to begin  some time in April instead of May  21.  Dairy Progress in the West  Iu the nine years ending with 1915  the output of creamery butter in Alberta increased from one and a half  million pounds to nearly seven and a  half millions. In the nine years ending 1916 the output of the same product in Saskatchewan jumped from  66,246 pounds to 2,500,000 pounds. A  proposal is now under consideration  looking to the amalgamation of the  seventeen creameries in Saskatchc-  I wan under one management. THE      GAZETTE.     MEDLEY,     B.

"And nobody will be hurt, take my  word for it, But there's more clone  by discretion than by flying round  upsetting everybody," observed the.  housekeeper somewhat, severely.  '"Did you hear what happened in  the hall just now?" demanded Mabin.    "Where were you?"  "I'm    always     everywhere,"     said ]  Mrs.   Lowndes.    "Only  I  don't   need  to shout to let'everybody know   I'm  coming." .��������� ���������  " Mabin cowered, looking at the shut  tip face, the straight mouth that looked like a locket casket  .   "I wish you'd tell mc more,"    the  girl said suddenly.  j     Mrs. Lowndes shook her head.  "Why, you're the last person to be  j told a secret," she said. "You'd be  ! blurting it out -within five  minutes���������  and to just  the.wrong person."  j     The tears rushed to  Mabin's eyes.  "You 'arc   unkind,"   she   said,   "and  ! unjust besides.   It's not my fault that  the people I tell these things to don't  believe me.   If only Lord Moorhampton   had  had  a little   more  courage,  he'd have found out all about his son  by this time,  and  he  would at  least  have     turned  Lady     Moorhamptpn's  j brother out of the house, so thai he  ' could do no more mischief."  "Perhaps   he   does   less   when   he's  under    one's  eyes    than    he    would  away," suggested Mrs. Lowndes iu  the same reserved tone. "Anyhow,  you can do no good by selling liim  aud her ladyship against joti, and  thal-s what you've been doing."  Mabin gave a great sigh.  "1.  can't.help  it,"  she said.

Brother and sister  were standing close together 'now,  and il struck the girl with a sense of  horror what a strong combination  these two made against the weak indulgence of the viscount. Lady  Moorhampton, with her affectation of  frivolity, and the real strength of a  determined and ambitious character  .underneath; the brother soaked in  alcohol, self-indulgent, unprincipled,  easily bought for any enterprise, no  matter how evil," when he had been  wrought up to the-right pitch-by im-  ���������pecuniosity and the passion that consumed him.  "I am going to sit with Julius,"  .���������said the girl quietly.  There was no hint of hidden meaning in her tone,  but the words  were  displeasing  to .'both  her  hearers.     A  sort of slight convulsion passed over  the brother and sister, and then Lady  Moorhampton said icily:  "Very well.    Good night"  And   Mabin' hurried  upstairs,     not  getting    out  of  hearing     before  she  caught the sound of heated and indig-  ., nant whispers.  She almost staggered as she went  along the corridor to the night nursery, -where Julius was lying asleep in  his little bed.  But there was another watcher Ly  his side already. Behind the screen  which shut in the boy's bed Mapin.  heard the sound of a footstep, and  going round to see who it was that  was trying to escape, she found the  housekeeper.  Mrs. Lowndes was looking grave  and worried.  She seemed confused and una'ole  to explain her presence at an tiour-  when she was usually having her supper in her own room.  "I���������I heard the. boy had not been  well," she began to explain. ,'T think  nurse had better have givcii him a  powder���������"  "Powder!" exclaimed Mabin contemptuously. "What powder is any  use against poison?"  The housekeeper glared at; her,  half alarmed, half indignant  "Hush, hush, you mustn't say such  things."  "Oh, why not? Why not? You  know all about it."  There was a pause, and then Mrs.  Lowndes said cautiously:  . "Whatever I may know, or think I  know,   I'm   not   so   foolish   as   to   t;o  telling everybody I meet about it"  Mabin reddened.  "Isn't it better," she said, "to let  them know there is someone on the  ���������watch? It may frighten them into  ibctter  behaviour."  Mrs. Lowndes shook her head.  "What would  they care," she    said  deliberately,     "supposing     what  you  think  were   true,   for  the  -word  of  a  girl, a stranger,  when  there is nothing to prove what you say?"  Mabin grew impatient  "I   can't   understand  you   all,"   she  said sharply.    "You know as much as  I do, more, perhaps, and yet "all you-  say to mc is 'Be quiet, don't say anything.'    And     Lord     Moorhampton,  ���������who is fond of his grandson, is just  for' her tonight. And if she did, it  would be of no use. I've come up to  walch the boy. f promised his ruber  I'd take care of him, aud wheiher he's  alive or whether he's dead, I'm going  to keep 1713** promise."  Suddenly there came a change in  the housekeeper's dry face. .She was  touched. Devoted herself, even if it  was,- as Mabin thought, in a perverse  and wrong-headed way, she .otild appreciate devotion in other people.  "Is it jusl your promise, aud nothing but that, makes you hold on?"  she  asked in a softer  tone.       ���������������  Mabin  felt  herself  blushing.  She did not care to confess iiow  deeply rooted in her heart' was the  romantic resolution to be true to the  man who had trusted her. She hardly liked lo confess, indeed, the extent  of the interest which had been aroused in her sentimental little heart by  the stranger with the fair beard. She  was ready to go through fire and water'to be worthy of the confidence  he had reposed in her, but she did,  not care to  talk about it.  "I'm fond of the boy," she said in  a low voice.  Mrs. Lowndes looked al her keenly.  "Only of the boy?" she said. Then  she added quickly: "Excuse mc, Miss  Wrest, if I seem impertinent B-.i'c  Mr. Cipriau had such a way with him,  I was wondering whether you had  been unwise enough t'o lose your  heart a little."  Mabin looked at* her quickly.  "What would it matter if i had?"  she asked.        ^  Mrs.  Lowndes  looked away.  "Oh, well no, to be sure, 1 don't  suppose it would matter," she said.  ."If he's dead, il doesn't matter al  all," pursued Mabin. "Of course, if  he's alive, it's different"  "How���������different?"  "Well, there's all the. difference,  isn't there, between ' being in love  with a man who's alive and one who  cuts w'hich enter into the make-up of  wood and is finding new uses , 10  which thcsc/ constituents arid those  already  known   can   be  put  Charcoal, as everyone knows, is  essential for the manufacture of black  powder.

"He was a gentleman, and  ���������not' one to go about raising hopes."  ; Mabin felt a little spice of mischief  in her at this emphatic pronouncement  ��������� "Aftcr all," she said demurely,  "people sometimes raise hopes which  they mean to gratify, don't they?"  The housekeeper was scandalized.  "You don't surely think that Mr.  Ciprian would have married you," she  said, aghast. "You don't mean to tell  meMie proposed to you, for if you  did say such a thing, I should have  to tell you to your face it/."wasn't  true."  Now this was a very strange speech  to make, Mabin thought. It set her  reflecting.     But all she  said was:  "I didn't know him long enough���������  if it was Mr. Ciprian whom I knew,  for him to propose to me. But after  all, as he was a man, and I a woman,  would it have been so very wonderful  if "  -Mrs. Lowndes could not allow such  a shocking speech to be finished.  "Excuse mc, Miss Wrest, I know  you are what people consider good  looking, and I know you're a lady,  and well educated, and all that But  let mc lell you the Moorhampt us  hold their heads very high, and they  look to marrying in the countv families." -  But Mabin ffad her retort ready.  "Lord Moorhamplon's second rnar-  ri-gc    wasn't into a  county    family,  was it?" she asked  rather mischievji  ously.     "Thcr      isn't much    of    the  county about Mr.   Wrirht,  I  thi  1-."  "The first Lady Moorhaniplon," replied the housck cpT sharp!v", was  a daughter of the Duke of Llanste-  phan."  "And the mother of Julius, whom  Mr. Ciprian married out in South America, do you think she b_lon0ed to  the   coun'y,   too?"  Now this was a sore point Beautiful as little Julius was, it went to  the heart of the housekeeper to sec  in thy child's olive skin and dark-  curls what flic called . a "foreign"  look, since with her the word "foreign" was almost equivalent to  bolical."

Interesting Conclusions Drawn From  Tracing French Ancestry  Thoughtful del vers into Canadian  history have drawn attention lo the  fact that tlie French of Lower Canada arc more akin lo ourselves than  we have been accustomed to suppose.  Their ancestors came from Brittany  and Normandy. The Brelons , arc  brothers lo the Celtic, Irish, the  Welsh and the Highland Scottish.  The Normans were of "Scandinavian  blood, and essentially identical with  the Northmen who scourged England under the name of"l5anes, occupied that part of France from which  came William the Conqueror and his  retinue, and even adventured into the  Mediterranean as far as Sicily. It  would be difficult, therefore, to say  whether the early explorers and settlers along the St. Lawrence in' the  days of the Bourbons Were more typ;-  cal Frenchmen���������mercurial and volatile���������than they were i-typical Britons  ���������daring, patient, plodding and physically prolific.���������Hamilton Spectator.

Keeping Account  A Little Figuring Will Usually Pay  Big Dividends  It has been said that if lead pencils- were uncommon'. things there  would be golden opportunities for.  slick-tongucd salesmen to sell them  at a substantial.profit on the strength  of the amount of money which could  be saved by their use. This wa.s never more true than it: is today when  everything is so high in price. A  lead pencil judiciously used will show  which crops last year returned tlic  most for the -labor ptil upon them.  Such information would be valuable  in planning this year's work. Lead  pencils 'have been known to save  years of time which was being spent  in milking unprofitable cows. A little  figuring- might show where the purchase of. a new machine would more  than save its cost in time saved during the rush of a busy season. Before the lead pencil idea is capitalized why not start of your own accord  to ascertain just how things arc going and where savings of lime and  money could be made?���������The Practical Farmer.

If any Canadian hotels are doing this sort of a  land office business, wc would like to  hear from them.
