Forbes last week,  Thursday last a telegram was  received by F. H. French stating that Pto. Schubert had boon  killed in action:  Dear Mrs. Forbes: This is  not a very roady answer to your  letter, which I was certainly  very glad to receive.  These notes which we send  from this part of the world, as  you * know, cannot be very  newsy; however, I can let you  know that so far we boys have  been pretty lucky; we have  not been on the firing line for  some time. Have moved to a  different part and will probably soon go in again.' We have  passed through some very fine  country in Franee, but as we  near the line again .things begin to look tough.  - We took some prisoners and  a machine gun where we were  before, and have had an opportunity" of seeing quite a few  specimens of Fritz since then.  France is sure a tine country,  but it seems to me they are  church poor, if there is such a  thing. Every .little village has  a million-dollar church and so  far as I can see no nice public  schools or buildings:  We had an interesting trip  from England to here; saw the  Aquitania and a lot of other  nice, comfortable-looking Red  Cross boats and trains.  I do not know whether you  will understand.or not, but if I  were to get hurt, all the boys  would be jealous of me. You  see they would send meback'to  England and ������ would at least  have dry feet for a long time.  Now that reminds me that I  have a. pair of Hedley-made  socks on now, and the ladies of  Hedley will never know how  much we appreciate what they  have done for us.  I often think of you people  back in that little town of  luxury. Yes, that is the right  word. Even if things do get  quiet once in a while, there is  sure to be plenty of pure cold  water to drink and there isn't  anj* poison gas or liquid fire in  the air. If you ever get .a  chance-to enjoy yourself, do so.  I . am glad I enjoyed myselr"  while in Hedley, because those  things aro all we have to look  back upon now.���������Bert.  lasts out this winter I lose my  guess. I don't think it can last  much longer. Don't worry  about me, for I am jake. Give  my love to father and the girls.  R. W.

Of these 426 wore at  sanitoria for tuberculosis, and  1616 at convalescent hospitals,  582 of the ��������� latter being outpatients, while 39 members of  theyforco _wore in :tsylnms for  the insane. Of the -126 I'.-mos of  tuberculosis, it may be added,  almost exactly half were discovered in time to prevent them  from leaving Canada for the  seat of the war.  According   to    a   statement  prepared by the Militia   department, up  to   October  oth, 1916,  the number of soldiers sent back  to Canada because  of  medical  unfitness  was   6208.    Of   these  916 were suffering from wounds,  shell-shock,   or   the   effects   of  gas;  122 were   insane; 245 were  afflicted with tuberculosis: while  the remainder, 48S0, were suffering from other diseases aud disabilities     All Canadians should  know what is being done hy the  Military    Hospital    commission  for    tlie   restoration    of   their  wounded   defenders  to   a position jof  self-support and  independence.    Every  disabled sol-  dior  is medicaily  examined on  arriving at Quebec.    If ho i.s no  longer in need of hospital treatment, lie is sent home  free  of  expense aud  discharged with a  pension  or gratuity according  to the extent of his  disability.  Men who cannot resume  their  former  work  are   advised and  enabled to take a  special training for new occupations.    This  is  provided free   of cost,   and  while the men are being trained  the dominion government maintains "them and their families.  Two towns, Niagara, Out.,  and Penticton, B. C, have,  through their municipal councils gone on record as favoring  equal pensions to disabled officers and men. Some of the  daily papers have referred to  the matter briefly, and correspondents have, of course, gone  fully into the question. Nothing conclusive has yet been advanced to provo that a disabled  officer is more valuable to tint-pun try than a. disabled private,  or that his sacrifice was greater.

An     error   occurred .-in   last  week's issue in reference to contributions to the Hamper fund  at tho Nickel Plate mine.   Sixty  five men gave   $62   towards the  fund.    In   hist   week's issue the  statement" was  made   that $60 '  was raised, each   man giving 50  cents.     Such   mistakes    would  not occur if those in  a position  to give facts would'do so before  and not after tho paper is issued.  There is no dosirejl.o belittle the -  efforts   of  any   particular  parts  of the district.    Each one is doing his or her utmost, and many  are giving more   than they can  afford. The 5-cont piece is often  as  great   a  sacrifice   as the $10  bill. Both are insignificant compared  with  the sacrifices made  by those m the   trend lies.    This  is an empire struggle  in which  Hedley  and   the   Nickel  Plate  arc  not  even  fly  specks.

Gulf, pointing' out'arc very different from the  Brilliant Work of  British Airmen  By the London Times Correspondent  at  the British  Headquarters  Up to the very limits that the  weather makes possible, our airmen  continue their gallant and successful  work. Most eloquent on ibis subject  is an extract from a letter written by  and captured on a prisoner:  ". . . Each of us crouches in a  little hole that he has dug out for  himself as a protection against possible splinters and stares at nothing  but the sky and the black wall of the  trench, . . . and the airmen circle  over us and try to do some damage,  but only enemy ones, for a German  airman will not dare lo come here���������  far too much afraid���������only behind the  front a great crowd, and here not one  makes an appearance."  Another prisoner, a well-educated  man, discussed our air supremacy  freely, maintaining that it was not  owing to any inferiority in the German machines or men, but only to  the great extent of front which they  had to cover, both in the cast and  west, while machines had also lo  be sent to the Balkans and to assist  the Turks.  Eloquent again is one of our own  reports upon the subject" "Fifteen  indecisive combats took place, but  the hostile machines for the most  part descended as soon as engaged."

Domestic "Water Supply  An abundance of good well water  is readily obtained almost anywhere  in Western Canada by digging, driving or drilling. The cost ranges from  $2 to $3 per foot completed. In many  sections springs abound, and the reports are continually being received  from well drillers and others to the  effect that they have, during the  course of their operations, secured  heavy flows of artesian well water.  Western Canada enjoys the reputation of an excellent domestic water  supply.  Cheerful, Chubby Children  Make the Home Happy  ..

Government Only Carrying Out  Plain Duty in Enforcing  the Policy  The policy of the blacklist was that  this country thought it reasonable  that its property, its system of credit,  and its system of shipping should not  be placed at the disposal of its enemies. If a man was quite clearly  j an enemy of this country, whether or  not technically a German, Austrian or  Turk, wc said we had a right to forbid our own subjects to trade with  him, because by so doing they were  assisting the enemy and increasing  his power to kill our own soldiers.  That was a broad principle, he  thought, incapable of being attacked.  He did not believe there was any  country, including the United States,  which, if engaged in such a contest  as wc now were, would hesitate to  carry out a policy of the same kind.  It was quite plain that when a criminal offence was created public notice must be given of the persons who  must not be dealt with. People could  not be left to find it out by possibly  receiving a summons through a police court for transgressing the law.  That was the reason for publication.  When the policy of this country was  understood the criticisms on it would  be seen to be quite misconceived,  and it would be recognized that in  doing what they had done the government had only carried out their  plain duty.���������Lord Robert Cecil, in the  British  Parliament.

When the simple life is  given up temptation begins.  When a man or a woman sacrifices  thrift for the love of luxury it is a  day of evil foreboding, for the love  of luxury puts a premium on discontent.  A taste for luxurious food and  drink is followed by a desire for expensive garments, silks, satins, laces  and jewels, things that add nothing  essentially to comfort or the joy of  living.  The story of the decadent nations  is always the same. When the simple  life was abandoned an era of luxury  set in and extravagance drained the  nation's resources.  Right living went the way of plain  living. Luxury, extravagance and  vice follow each other in natural sequence.  A luxurious nation finds its resources swept away, its patriotism  sacrificed lo effeminacy and its physical well-being to the common vices  of mankind.  Thoughtful men in this day of abnormal prosperity are endeavoring  to impress the lesson of thrift on the  American people, but the drift is all  the other way, here and everywhere.  It has always been so.  It is a situation full of danger and  the oft-repeated warning is given  in the hope that some may listen and  profit, though many scoff and suffer.  mslow s  Soothing Syrup  Makes Cheerful,  Chubby Children  Is absolutely non-narcotic.

German Brutality  Gross Departures from the Law  of  Nations and the Dictates  of Sanity  "A terrible day of wrath awaits  Germany, when, the nations of the  earth have time to reflect upon the  methods of German warfare, and  when tliey are not afraid of being  dragged into it as participants of" its  horrors."  Thus writes a Dutcii statesman in  a powerful comment upon the indictment that France brings against  German officers in their treatment  pf French non-combatants in the occupied territory of their enemy.  The -full story, with affidavits and  other documentary proof, and in the  meantime the summaries that arc  presented to the public already arc  so shocking in their inhuman significance thai it is difficult for the human mind to conjure up grosser departures from the law of nations and  the dictates of sanity.  Wc can only submit a few instances of German brutality. They must  speak for themselves without further  comment:  In the Aisne Department a farmer  who did not want to work was undressed and sent, almost naked, into  the fields under rifle and shell fire;  with his^ eyes ��������� bandaged and his  hands bound. He was left there for  a day a,nd then taken as a hostage to  Germany.  Many witnesses declare that at different places, particularly in the Departments of the Aisne and Pas-dc-  Calais, the inhabitants were forced to  work in the trenches.  A youth of sixteen states that in  October, 1914, he was forced, with  some,fifty comrades; to do trench  work in the Plain of L���������1-���������-, in the'  Pas'dc-Galais, for , six days. They  were then taken to L���������-���������.where the  Germans used them-as shields. Forty  of them were killed. The witness  was wounded by the : splinter of a  "75" shell. ���������������������������-;   The practice has been extended to  Lille and the district, as is shown by  the correspondence exchanged between the Governor and the Mayor  of  Lille.

Can you  Where "Anzac" Was  Derived  Many newspaper readers have wondered just why the troops from the  Antipodes came by their popular  nickname of "Anzac." Reference  works have been ransacked without  shedding any illumination on the  mystery, but an explanation is forthcoming. In the introduction to the  volume bearing the title of "The Anzac Book," Lieutenant-Gcneral Sir W.  R. Birdwood says that the appellation  of "Anzac" is purely arbitrary in its  origin. "When I took the command  of the Australian and New Zealand  Corps," explains Gen. Birdwood, "in  Egypt I was asked to select a telegraphic code address for my army  corps, and then adopted the word  Anzac.'" This code word was popularized when Gen. Birdwood, after  .anding his forces at Gallipbli, .named  the beach whereon they debarked  'Anzac Cove."   ������������������������������������','..-.  Employer  hand?

The Anglo-French  Tunnel Project  Serious Consideration of the Undertaking Is Now Being Made  For a long time past a submarine  tunnel connecting Dover in England  with Calais in France has been regarded as practicable from both the  engineering and the economic .points  of view. So far the project has been  looked on as one for private enterprise, and as such if would at any  time for a third of a century have attracted the capital necessary for its  construction. The great obstacle in  the way has been the force, at times  only passive but sometimes actively  antagonistic, of public opinion in both  countries, but especially in Britain.  Early in the career of the Nineteenth  Century magazine it published a formal protest against the proposal,  signed by four hundred of the most  prominent and eminent British statesmen, business men, publicists, and  litcrators, one of the last named being  Lord Tennyson, the Laureate.  The chief fear on the part of the  Protestants was the break the tunnel  I would make in the insulation of  (Great Britain. She might still be  ! "compassed by the inviolate sea,"  but it might be possibbVfor the continental invader to reach her by land  through the tnunel. John Bright, in  one of the Parliamentary-discussions  on the project, ridiculed thoic who  had any fear of Britain being conquered by invaders coming into the  country through a "hole in the  ground," but the scheme became inert and continued so for a generation.  It has recently shown signs of resurrection as a result of the Franco-  British Alliance, and iL seems unlikely that,any serious exception will  now be taken on the ground of a possible hostile invasion that could not  be prevented by the British navy.  It is hardly likely that the Governments of the two countrise will,  after their experiences during the  past two years, including the British  defence of the Suez Canal, consent  to the construction of the .Channel  tunnel as a private work. If it is to  be kept free from obstructive complications, and to reach the maximum  of usefulness for all purposes of peace  and war, it must be constructed, operated and owned as a dual-government scheme. As such it would  serve as a strong and probably an  enduring bond between the two countries, all the more so because of its  effect in expanding passenger traffic  between Britain and France, the latter becoming even more than it is at  present the gateway of the continent  to   the  Islanders.  There arc no serious engineering  obstacles to overcome. Most of the  way the borings would be through  chalk, easy to penetrate and impervious to water. The undertaking  would, in fact, be no more difficult  than the Sarnia tunnel, though it  would take somewhat longer to complete. All such works have been made  indefinitely easier of both construction and operation by the modern  applications of electric energy. It is  proposed to construct two tubes at  first, but it need cause no surprise if  others arc soon found nccessar}-. ���������  Toronto  Globe.  VACANT FARM LANDS IN THE WEST  AWAIT THE TIDE OF IMMIGRATION  SURVEYORS PREPARING FOR RAPID DEVELOPMENT  ', AJI'  ,-' 's-fkA  *\ .'-j-71  -V-'M  Annual   Report  of  the  Assistant-Surveyor-General   Shows  that  Over Eighteen Thousand Miles of Dominion Lands Were  ,,  Mapped Out Last Year, the Work Being Performed  By Fifty-nine Parties of Surveyors '  Naturalization  It is not necessary for anyone purchasing or owning lands anywhere in  Western Canada to become a British  subject unless he. so desires. The  majority of those who have settled in  the Canadian West from foreign  countries have, however, become citizens. Canadian naturalization laws  are very'liberal. Those who are not  British subjects, but now are located  in Canada, may transact business and  own.-' real estate here as much or as  long as they, choose without becoming naturalized. They are.'also allowed to vote (providing they own property) on all but national issues, arid  upon becoming naturalized the privilege of voting upon national issues is  extended to them.  Lake Shipments Are Interesting  For the crop year ending August  31st; 1916, there were 1,019 cargoes  shipped from the twin ports of Fort  William -and Port Arthur, at the head  of Lake Superior, in Canadian vessels  and 830 in. American vessels, totalling  in all 330,572,600 bushels. In comparison with the crop year of 1914-1915  the shipments were more than 200-  000,000 -bushels more, for in the year  there were 617 Canadian cargoes and  95 American, making a total of 101,-  15S.902 bushels of all grains. In 1913-  1914 there were 788 Canadian cargoes and 350 American cargoes totalling 187,9773,371 bushels shipped from  the twin ports.  Problem of War Crosses  The French Government has  awarded 120,000 War Crosses since  the creation of the decoration. Of  these, 16,000 have been given in the  course of the present war. The  Chamber of Deputies has decided to  create a distinctive sign to be worn  by those who have won the cross  while facing death. The fact chat  thousands of non-combatants have  received the coveted bit of metal and  ribbon is considered unfair to the  others. A special commission was  formed to sort out and award the  new insignia to those really entitled  to it.  "I have here," said the agent, "a  utensil that no housekeeper can afford  to be without."  "What is it?" asked the woman at  the door.  "It's a combined corkscrew, can-  opener, pocket-knife, screw-driver,  tack-hammcr, glass-cutter, and "  "Hold on a minute. 1 don't want  one  of  those  things.1'  "Why not?"  "By keeping all those tools separate it is impossible for my husband  to lose more than one at a time."  "Look here, Snip," said Slowpay  indignantly to his tailor, "you haven't  put any pockets in these' trousers.  ' "No, Mr. Slowpay," said the tailor,  with a sigh; "I judged from your account here that you never had anything to put in them."  "For some time, when the flood of  immigration was at its highest,"  writes the Assistant Sui veyor-Gcn-  eral in his annual report, "there was  some difficulty in carrying on field  operations so as lo keep ahead of  the rapid development in Western  Canada. A sufficient number of  properly qualified surveyors could  not be obtained as the remuneration  offered in other branches of engineering was more attractive. At  present, with the exception of a few  localities, the surveyors arc well  ahead of settlement, and it is no longer difficult to obtain efficient technical assistance in carrying out our field  work."  Surveying the unappropriated land  in the Canadian West is just now  ahead of settlement. It is well that  such is the case, because, when the  tide of immigration again pours in,  it will be a tide that will ovcifiow  all previous bounds, and our vacant  lands should be ready to receive the  land-seekers and home-makers.  A general idea of the nature and  amount of-������work performed last year  by-the Surveyor-Geneial and his  staff, who form a branch of the Department of the Interior, can most  readily, be obtained from a few statistics. The township outlines surveyed had a total length of 3,270  miles; section lines, 7,100 miles; traverse, 5,141 miles; re-surveys, 2,610  miles; a total of 18,121 miles, all performed by 59 parlies of surveyors.  Besides his maps and mathematical data, each surveyor in the field  writes a short report on the season's  work. These reports arc most matter of fact, as becomes a man dealing with figures, but they arc perfectly reliable, and from them a  reader obtains many a sidelight on  our West, and much accurate and valuable information. A few gleanings  are here brought together.  Mr. M. H. Baker, who was surveying in Southern Alberta, had an  experience that seems most curious  to one not familiar with the locality.  "I went up," he writes, "to township  1-4-4 to make a traverse of the Milk  River, but on reaching there I found  that the river had changed its course  southerly, and flows south of the  International Boundary, so that no  traverse was required." The river  Mr. Baker had gone to survey had  left the country.  Several surveyors report on the  valley of the Peace River. Mr. L.  Brenot operated between Fort St.  John and Hudson Hope; and what  he has to say of the climate confirms  the good reports that have been coming out of this land of promise, which  is going to be our next "W'esl. Mr.  Brenot writes:  "The climate of the Peace River  district is similar to that of Eastern  Canada, and is free from, extremes.  The summers are moderately hot  arid the rainfall is adequate. Summer  frosts were of somewhat frequent occurrence during our survey, but were  not severe enough.to do much damage.: During a cold snap in the last  two weeks of January, 1914, the thermometer registered 54 degrees, but  after the Chinook winds began about  the middle of February, the temperature was- rarely many degrees below  freezing point.  The snowfall is not very heavy.  Trails connect the various settlements, though the fording of rivers  whose beds are composed of shifting  sands, renders travel in summer dangerous. The ice on Peace river,  which is safe from the middle of  January to the middle of March, furnishes a good road for winter travel."  Far to the north the watcri of the  Peace and the Athabasca Rivers and  of Lake Athabasca, too, flow northward in what is known as the Great  Slave River, which empties into the  Great Slave Lake, out of which flows  the Mackenzie River, which carried  the waters of all this Far Northland  to the Arctic Ocean. Along the  Great Slave River surveys were made!  last season by Mr. S. D. Fawctt, who  tells in limited space of things and  conditions in this hinterland of Alberta.  The Great Slave is a mighty river,  broken here and there' by rapids,  many of which can be run by the  huge scows which arc here the principal means of_ transportation.  Fort Smith is the chief place, with  Smith Landing sixteen miles distant,  with a good road between the two,  and a telephone system installed by  the Hudson's Bay Company. The  surveyor writes:  "Both Smith Landing and Fort  Smith will, no doubt, soon be thriving towns, as all the land in the  neighborhood is'vcry good, and it  has been amply demonstrated that  grain can be raised there successfully. Smith Landing will then form  the landing and Fort Smith the  shipping point for goods going north,  while the opposite will be true for  outgoing products. Power can be  readily obtained from the rapids."  From Fort Smith, on the Great  Slave River" to the Arctic Ocean, fifteen hundred miles distant, there is  continuous  navigation.  "The Hudson's Bay Coriipany have  a stern-wheel freight and passenger  steamer called the'Mackenzie River,  which draws about four and a half  feet of water when loaded. This boat  navigates the river very successfully  and is seldom grounded. The Northern Trading Company have a one-  screw steel-framed steamer called the  Northland Trade, which carries  freight and a few passengers, but as  she draws six feet of water when,  loaded considerable difficulty is experienced in low water in navigating j  the shallows    on  Mackenzie    River.!  This Jailer company have '>al.io tn*j.L  small tug steamers which operate on  the Mackenzie. The Mackenzie River-  steamboat on her first trip leaves  Fort Smith about June 25 and goes,  to Fort Macphcrson. On her second-  trip she leaves Fort Smith about the  first week in August but goes only  as far as Good Hope. The Northland  Trader usually manages to leave a  few days prior to the Hudson's Bay-  Company's boat, but goes only to  Arctic Red River. She also makes-  two trips during the navigation season, which commences, about the  middle of June and ends generally im  the latter part of October."  At Fort Smith, farming on a small;  scale is carried on by the members  of the mission, and they raise wheat  and oats successfully; -and the hardier vegetables do well.  The waters of the Great Slave.  Lake teem with the finest white fish  and lake trout "that can be found"  anywhere. Other species such as in-  connu (so-called by the discoverer  of Mackenzie River, who named themi  'inconnu' or 'unknown'), pike, .pickerel, grayling and -sucker are very-  numerous. White fish weigh from'  three to ten pounds, and ' trout, inconnu and pike from three to fifty  pounds. On account of the water  always being ice cold their flesh is.  very firm and is excellent food. No-  doubt some day, as transportation  becomes easier, the fishing industry  will  be developed."  Considerable surveying was done im  northern and northwestern Manitoba. Mr. A. M. Narraw'ay. tells of  the fisheries of Lake Winnipeg,  "known throughout America,", he  writes, "for its white fish and sturgeon," many white fish being "cached  in the fall by the Indians- for dog-,v  food during the winter."   _,,,'"  "While moose and deer are none  too plentiful on the east side of the  lake, yet there arc enough to furnish food for the Indians in that  district. There seems to be a fair  number of fur-bearing animals In  this district, including, many black  and silver foxes. While we wcrc-  running the 6th base line during May,  one of my men was fortunate enough.,  to catch alive two black foxes, for  which he received $800."  The annual report of the Topographical Dcppartment of the Interior has the usual forbidding 'appearance of a governmental report,  but, like many of the other reports,  it 'contains much'that not only informs but entertains; and the reports  of the surveyors are among the most  interesting of these blue books.

German prisoners, buoyed up by  the..airy imagination of the Wolff Bureau, arc sadly disillusioned, it seems,  when they find that London still  stands where it did. Two or three  days ago a wounded officer arrived at  Charing Cross, manifestly cheered by  the prospect of seeing London largely in ruins. His first disillusion was  at the terminus itself, which he had  been told was a shapeless mass; and  as he passed through Trafalgar  Square and towards the West End, *  and his British guard, in answer to  repeated questionings, - pointed to  building after building which the un-  veracious Wolff had declared to be  destroyed, his gloom grew deeper,  arid he seemed a stricken man.

An Essay on Men  A little,   girl wrote    the following  composition on men: '  "Men are what women marry. They  drink and smoke and swear, but don't  go to church.

' NLESS one keeps up with the  latest offerings in neckwear, one  cannot hope to be smartly dressed, for it is at the neck line that fashion  creators direct much attention when the  arrows of style  are  shot forth.  The" principal feature of collars for the  coming season is their tendency to attain  height. Perhaps they will not be able to  reach a high point all the way round, but  the majority of them will be high at the  backhand low in the front. This type is the  most popular of any because it is comfortable as.well as  dignified in appearance.  One expression of the high-low collar is  the one showing a bib effect. White net  has been used for the fashioning of the  model and hand embroidery elaborates it.  One side of the bib is tacked to the collar.  The other side is supplied with snap fasteners.    This is a decidedly novel model.  Cape effects are very strong in neckwear. The style offers a splendid opportunity for variety. The capes can be broad  or narrow, regular or irregular in line. The  popularity of net for collars is again  evinced in a high close-fitting collar supplemented with double capes scalloped and  bound. The bow at the throat is unusual,  being one of dark blue and white moire  ribbon.  It requires such a little innovation to  give a thing an unusual touch. For instance, observe how the stiff organdie bows  set apart the collar-and-cuff set of linen and  net. The linen portions, of the set are  daintily embroidered in white. While the  newer collars show very little color, here  and there you will find a collar similar to  this given brilliancy by the introduction of  hand embroidery. The collar is fastened by  buttons supplied with braid links and  passed  thru real  buttonholes.  The touch of black is noticeable on  many new models. As a rule, the somber  ���������note is brought in by the use of ribbon.  Black moire ribbon is cleverly used to hold  together the turn-over collar of embroidered handkerchief linen. The ribbon is  passed thru loops of crocheted cotton. The  same method is employed on the distiri-  guished-looking cuffs.  On neckwear crocheted buttons can be  successfully used. They are seen in link  effect, to hold together the collar, which  combines several important points���������tabs,  turn-over and cape effects.  Surely here is a collection of collars  which should be considered before making  any  selection   for  the   fall  season. i.   ��������� itt'ji^Bt:������B*~-~-***<--*-"--~i---"~-^  THE      GAZETTE,      HEDLEY,      B.  ^-  --i.U^f''^  ���������������.lr ���������3,''+*\V-i3  ' j ,   -..;, s ^:^?-'iy  ['Human Nature  After a Battle  |Fighting Spirit, Humor and Tales of  Desperate Bravery  There were Highlanders there, so  I"fcy" after their fierce fighting that  Stlicy went about with their bayonets,  gproddmg imaginary Germans, and  Iscarching empty dugouts as though  |the enemy were crowded there.

Meat to    the  Belligerent Nations  Why American consumers have to  pay exorbitant prices for meat is  clearly enough explained by the sta  tislics of meat exports compiled by  the National City Bank. Not only  did the exports of meats of all kinds  rise from 455,000,000 pounds in 1914  to 1,339,000,000 pounds last year, but  fresh beef shipments during the same  period jumped from 6,400,000 pounds  to 231,000,000 pounds. Most of this  was consigned to the belligerent  countries, Great Britain, France and  Italy taking 214,000,000 pounds of  American beef last year as against  none at all in the .year before the  war.  In other terms, the United States  has exported to Europe during^ the  two years of the war 29 times  as much beef as in the two years immediately preceding the war, and this  in the face of a decrease in the supply of cattle and a decline of domestic imports .of meat to less than  half the amount of 1914. Is there any  wonder that the price of meat for  home consumption is higher than at  any time since the Civil War?���������New  York World.  Wilhelmshaven   Confidence  German  Navy  Still  Safe  and -Confident Bottled Up in the Kiel  Canal  Oswald F. Schuette, one of the  Globe's representatives at Berlin and  a correspondent persona grata to official Germany* who has never been  accused of pro-Ally bias, has been allowed to visf? the German fleet���������the  first newspaper man allowed this privilege  since the Skagerrak battle.  Mr. Schuette reports that, the officers and men of the German fleet,  tired of "watchful waiting," are eager  to sail out and offer ba'ttle. He represents commanders and sailors as  confident of success." - New vessels  have been' added since the battle of  Jutland these months ago.  The confidence of Wilhelshaven is  not shared by Berlin. This is a conclusion deducible from the fact that  the fleet is kept close behind its protective screens. Jellicoe and Beatty  are still dancing around on the outside daring their foes to come out.  How the .British feel about the outcome is sufficiently indicated by the  fact that the French navy has not  been called on for assistance. Berlin  eulogizes the German fleet and continues to claim the British were  whipped, but won't let the ships go  out.  The general situation "is such that  a decisive naval victory would be of  great value to Germany. Command of  the seas would perhaps win the war-.  That no serious effort is made to assume such command .can only be read  as due to a belief that an attempt  would fail. It is from the lack of  movement of the German fleet rather  than from descriptions pf its Spirit  that one can learn what its masters  really think.���������New York Globe.  Motoring Comes High  $1,180,000,000 Spent on Motoring Each  Year by American People  According to the Scientific American, the numDer of automobiles in  use in the United States has reached  the 2,000,000 mark. The estimate  continues that about 8,000,000 people  in this country enjoy the luxurious  pleasure of motoring.  To run 2,000,000 cars for one year  requires, at the very least, 1,000,-  000,000 gallons of gasoline at a cost  of about $130,000,000. The estimated  cost of 20,000,000 gallons of lubricating oil is put at $8,000,000. Further  it is believed that 12,000,000 tires  worth not less than $16 each adds  $192,000,000 to the total yearly expense of motoring. Accessories and  extra comforts are estimated at $50  a car, totalling $100,000,000. The  item, of garage charges on short  tours, exclusive of gas and oil, is  put at $100 per car, or $200,000,000.  Repairs made necessary by wear,  tear and accident, tire troubles not  included, are approximated at $50 per  car a year, or $100,000,000.  In summing up his estimate, the  editor or expert who is responsible  for these figures, states that the total  running expenses for all cars in use  is about $730,000,000. Add thereto,  he continues, the value of 600,000 new  cars purchased during the year, at an  average price of $750, or $450,000,000,  and-we 'get the immense total of  $1,180,000,000 spent in a single year  (1915) on the sport of motoring.  Inx, the estimate no allowance has  been made for the expense of hiring  a chauffeur, . automobile insurance  and various other requisites. It is  quite apparent that the total expenditure > would ' be greatly in" excess of  this -estirriate.  Nature Exemplified  In the Psalms  The Disabled Hero  No Effort Too Great to Restore His  Ability and Help Him to Secure  Employment  There are already about 1,700 disabled soldiers now under treatment  in Canada, and almost every week  sees more of them arriving from the  front.  Some of them, of course, are so  seriously disabled that it is impossible for them to take up again their  former occupations, or, at all events,  to take them up again without the aid  of artificial appliances and training in  their use.  They are heroes, we say; but the  glamor of heroism will not content  them long. The same quality of self-  respect that made them freely enlist  will make them as eager to rc-enlist  in the peaceful work of the community that they Lave helped to preserve.  The pensions that are due them will  be an assistance, but never a substitute for an ordinary livelihood, in the  days that lie before them.  Do we quite realise that our coun-  organised  Conscientious Objectors  Intimidation  Does Not Always Succeed as a Restraining and Reformatory Influence  Commuting the sentence-;, on conscientious objectors convicted of  military disobedience will be generally commended. The object of the  death penally in such cases is to  strike terror in. the hearts of others  inclined to be equally unmindful of  the duty of obedience. But there is  a growing conviction that the coercive deterrent and reformatory influence of terror is often exaggerated.  A man with real conscientious sciu-  ples is not afraid to die. German  ^rightfulness was an absolute failure,  so far as the purpose of the instigators was concerned. Atrocities in  Belgium failed absolutely to terrify  the Serbians. Confidence in the  power of terror is always strong in  lawmakers, especially in ther'niodern  development of representative institutions. They find tliemselves afraid  of innumerable things. They are  afraid to express advanced 'opinions,  and are abnormally timid^ about new  departures. They dread everything  that needs to. be explained. They are  afraid of -the 'Various mental idibsyh-'  cracies of their constituents, and are  specially alarmed at any movement  or agitation on which they must take  a definite position. The candidates  today, rely for success on a timid silence on every issue on which feelings are strong and on a vigorous endorsement of the obvious.  Having so many fears, it is natural  that lawmakers should in time learn  to rely with too much confidence on  fear as a restraining and reformatory  influence.  It was the legislators and magistrates who thought that if the death  penalty for stealing sheep was abolished there would be an epidemic of  sheep-stealing all over the country.  They thought the. people were withheld from such crimes by the impending untimely death. They were convinced that nobody's sheep would be  safe throughout the kingdom once the  fear of the hangman was removed.  Like Chanticleer, who thought his  crowing caused the sun to rise, they  thought 'their threatening penalties  provided the safety of property.  Their terrors proved unfounded.  Their fears were not realized. There  was-no increase in crime. Danger  has a dual influence, and while it deters the timid it invites and stimulates the bold.

The conscientious objector  to the taking of human life will often  be more firm and determined if facing the death penalty than if threatened with less spectacular punishment. Of all influences used in human guidance, punishment requires  the. greatest individual discernment,  yet it is often applied by rules that  take no account of personal differences. Conscientious objectors have  given considerable thought to their  attitude, and it might be well to take  sufficient time to give some thought  to their several cases. ��������� Toronto  Globe.

In the Book of Psalms, to the  world has been given the works of  the greatest master of literature  throughout the ages. Indeed, there  are phrasings contained in his language which indelibly impress the  reader with the majesty of utterance.  The references of the Psalmist to the  earth and that contained therein may  be said to enter into his wiitings with  the eighth, a Psalm which for beauty  of expression stands paramount. In  the first verse of this song, the excellence of(God's name in the universe is forcibly impressed upon mankind. The 19th Psalm, at verse one,  declares the firmament as demonstrative of an infinite handiwork, and the  pith of the entire Biblical tenet concerning Almighty possession is herein contained. A Creator supreme in  authority over the great waters is  spoken of in Psalm 29. Again, wc  perceive allusion to His potentiality  in the 33rd writing. The language of  David as recorded in the 46th,' the  Psalm of Confidence, is regarded by  Biblical scholars the masterstroke of  the Israelite's efforts. The mammalian creation as recipient of God's  forethought is declared in verses 10  and 11 of the 50th writing. We may  describe Psalm 65 the "husbandman's  melody," a title not without application to the 72th,,and even the strength  of chariot and horse are repudiated  in Psalm 76. For grandeur of representative utterance toward the seas,  verse 19 of chapter 77 is without  equivalent in superb literary phrasing.  The 93rd likewise bears reference to  the great waters, and verse 5 of  Psalm 95 also refers to this feature.  Earth, hills, clouds, darkness are en-  '.umerated in the 97th. A potential  promise that the world shall not be  moved is written in Psalm 99. An  enlightenment of especial characteristic is recorded in the 104th, which  speaks of the source from whence  man's natural requirements emanate.  The omnipotence of the Creator  above the wings of the storm arc  described in sublime phrasing in  Psalm 107. The Almighty in the posture of humility, as-He beholds the  things of earth, is contained in the  113th. A world's formative material  is alluded to in the Psalms following; the earth as a gift to the child-  fen of men is recipient of corroboration in the 115th. The language of  ���������Psalm 134 enforces veracity that the  creation of the world alone proceeds  from God. The fallacy of mankind  in attempting obscurity from Divine  vision through natural resources is  pronounced in the 139th; in Psalm 147  are two-verses which may be cited  the distributory document of God's  benevolent attitude to the sons of  ,men; Active-, passive of the entire  creation, are enjoined to uplift the  voice in exultant strain to tlie Lord  in the 148th; and in the last verse of  the Psalmist's writings all, everything  in possession of breath, receive the  Divine mandate to be in unison in  praising their Maker.  The human being who fails to comprehend in the Book of Psalms all  that is noble, inspiring, sublime in a  world's literature, must inevitably  fail to discover an equivalent emanating from any source whatsoever. A  Psalm may be read every day  throughout the year, y.et there will  remain some feature still to be observed. The grandeur of expression  throughout the writings is so infinite  in depth and construction that mankind in all ages of the world will remain in amazement at the language  contained in the Psalmist's work. ���������  J.

Shipments  of  Wheat Being  Sent  to  >- Calgary Elevator This Year  Several shipments of wheat have  been received at the Calgary government elevator consignd from Vcr-  raon, Enderby and Armstrong, and  more is expected later, as threshing  is  completed.  This is the first time * any grain  from the western province has been  sent eastward, and this is entirely  due to the facilities which arc offered  at Calgary for storage and grading.  Of course the premium which cash  grain is commanding at the terminals makes the eastern market look  inviting to the farmers of interior  B.C. points. While there is a market for milling grain at the coast, it  is a spasmodic one, and there is not  the premium there that is obtained  on Fort William shipments. If the  shipping facilities at the coast in the  way of ocean transportation was normal the coast elevators would likely  get this grain. Conditions just at  present, though, arc not favorable.  From information which has been  received in Calgary it is estimated  there will be about two hundred cars  of grain to ship from these points.  At present it is being sent in sacks  down as far as Calgary and reloaded.  "Canada in Flanders  >-  10,000 Copies of Book Sent to English  Schools  Obed Smith, Commissioner of Emigration has received, by order of the  Canadian Government, ten thousand  copies of Sir Max Aitken's book,  "Canada in Flanders," for distribution  in English schools. Letters acknowledging the books arc most striking.  The headmaster, St. Thomas, Bolton,  for instance, writes: "Over a hundred  of my boys enlisted in the Canadians." Miss Bolhcroyd, of Grimsby,  remarked: "My girls correspond with  those of a Canadian school, and love  it." Miss Brown, of Cheltenham,  says: "We have twenty scholars corresponding regularly with scholars in  Canada." XV. J. Walsh, of Chcerham  Hill, says: "My eldest son, a sergeant  in the 10th Battalion, fell in the  charge in the Wood in April, 1915."  David Reekie, of Bolton, says: "My  son was killed at Ypres."  New Economic Entente  Alliance  for  Peace  Against  Inroads  of the Huns  "The political re-modelling which  will follow after the war should be  accompanied by a veritable economic  revolution," writes -Raphael-Georges  Levy, member of the French Insti  tute. "The Allies will no longer be  foolish enough to leave the greater  part ol their commerce in the hands  of the enemy. , They have discovered  that-they can supply each other mutually with all the raw materials and  manufactured goods which they formerly received from Germany and  Austria. They know that the 800  million human beings who inhabit  France, England, Russia, Japan. Belgium and Serbia with their colonies  form an immense field of consumers,  capable of absorbing the entire production of the Allies.  "It will be a difficult and exceedingly laborious 'task to arrange their  future custom policy, but this wdrk  will be insignificant in comparison  with the combined effort they are now  making on land and sea. The essential thing will be to approach this  part of our common task in a broad-  minded and liberal manner and always keep the goal in sight which  must be reached to seal the military  compact, concluded in the fact of the  German danger, by a close and definitive economic entente.

The  profit  has  been,  let  us  repeat,     that  we  have  compelled     neutrals  to  understand   that  wc  are  going  to   win;  that  we   have   killed   many   Germans,  which  is  the only known  means     of  '  ending the war;  that  we have relieved   Verdun,  which    was   hard   pressed;   that   wc   have   thrown   Germany  everywhere  upon  the   defensive;   and  -  that  we    have  made    an  end  of  the  shuttle-and-loom  strategy of  Falken-  hayn,  and have    prevented  the  Germans  from  terminating the  triumphs  of our  Russian allies.

Standing in front of one of Peterson's pictures were several young  women. One young woman who was  gazing at the picture ardently, suddenly exclaimed: "Oh, if I only knew  the artist who did this!"  "Pardon me," said Peterson, stepping forward with great delight at  the evident prospect of being taken  up by the social set. "I am the  artist."  "Ah!" she cried, with a particularly winning smile, "then in that case  won't you please tell mc the name of  the dressmaker who made that perfectly stunning frock your model  wore?"  "Do you think contentment is a  blessing?"  "It depends on the kind of contentment. If your contentment is  due to the fact that you have about  everything you want, it is highly desirable."  Discipline  The Value of it in the Drilling and  Training of Soldiers  When the Duke of Connaught 'old  the Canadian soldiers that the quality  they needed more than any other was  discipline, he spoke as an old soldier,  and laid emphasis upon a point that  Canadians-as a race are apt to neglect. In fact, some people have the  notion that'it is a rather fine thing  to be without discipline, and that discipline is mere fussincss and red tape.  In proof of their contention they  point to the wonderful lecords made  at the front by the Canadians and  Australians. The latter, for instance,  are said to call their General "Birdie"  and there is a story told by General  Birdwood to the effect that when a  British officer complained that the  Australians failed to salute him, he  replied, "Why, they will hardly salute  me, and," continued General Bird-  wood, "when I was passing a sentry  near a dugout he seemingly paid no  attention to me, but just as I was  opposite him he called out 'Duck,  Birdie.' " ' The scandalized British officer asked the General what he did.  "Why," said the General, with a  smile, "I ducked, and escaped a large  shell."  This is a companion story to that  told of the English sentry who challenged a party returning to camp, and  being told to go to a point some degrees south of Purgatory, replied,  "Pass,   Canadians."  Probably both these yarns are inventions, but even if they are true,  they are no indications that the Australians aiid Canadians were lacking  in discipline. On the contrary, it  may be asserted with the utmost confidence that no troops who have distinguished themselves in this war  have  been  undisciplined.  It is discipline that turns a crowd  of men into an army, says the Mail  and Empire. It was discipline^ that  enabled the first British expeditionary force to fight that wonderful action in the retreat from Mons. After  that fight a German remarked that  the British fought like an army of  non-commissioned officers, and no  higher praise was ever given troops.  It was because he would not scud  troops into action until they had been  thoroughly disciplined that Kitchener  kept his new and growing army drilling for a year in England, while the  public was clamoring that it should  be sent to France. It is the necessity  of becoming familiar with the manual  of drill that makes the training in  Canada seem unduly long to many  of the soldiers. It may be that not  until they get under fire, when the  life of one man depends upon the discipline of the man beside him, and  the existence of one battalion depends  upon, the discipline of its neighbor,  will some of the soldiers now training appreciate what discipline means.  Plenty of Officers  My  Over    Two    Thousand    Officers  Canada Who Cannot Secure  (.  ' Attachments '  It  is   estimated  there  are  upwards  of 2,000    infantry    lieutenants" in the'  Dominion who have  taken their,cer-"  tificates    and passed    the school but  who  cannot secure attachments.'  In addition there are a_ number of  officers of higher ranks 'fri the same -  predicament, while every month there  l-cluin to Canada many supernumeraries from England to swell the ranks  of the unattached.  Owing  to the    fact -that very few -  new  regiments   are  being   authorized -  at  present     the  pioblcm     of  dealing  with    these  two    full    battalions  of  young officers is a somewhat curious  one.  A short time ago 500 unattached .  subalterns were sent overseas from  Canada to England at-the-requcst of  the Canadian authorities there. These  men were utilized to fill the vacancies  caused through the wastage among  lieutenants at the front which was  comparatively heavy.  No doubt more will be wanted, out  the stock of qualified-unattached  lieutenants continues to grow and  promises to increase so far as the unattached men of higher ranks are  concerned. It is possible that they  will have to be content to, take a  lieutenant's rank if they desire- to see  active service.  Good Enlistment in  New Zealand  Government Contradicts Statement  That Voluntary System Has '  Failed  The Secretary for the Colonies de-  sires to give publicity to a communication received from the Government  of New Zealand drawing attention to  an article in the London press, which  implied that the voluntary system  had failed in New Zealand and therefore it was necessary to introduce  compulsion, and an unfavorable influence was drawn as to the supply  of men from New Zealand. The  New Zealand Government desires  that the statements made should be  contradicted. They point out that  the voluntary system has not failed,  but so as to be picpared for all eventualities before parliament meets next  year, the New Zealand Government  took the precaution of taking  measures to maintain their ^obligations to the Imperial Government, but the powers of  the bill have not so far been required.

Actions Beyond Words  For some thousands of years at  least the resources of language had  been ahead of the possibilities of human action, but in this war, bringing  out forces and sounding depths never  imagined before, man's power of action, and, behind that, the play of his,  mind and soul,, have wholly outstripped his capacity to utter. The, conflict drags on aud becomes more colossal, and is slow, and yet it is never  for a moment monotonous. Its varieties are more astounding than its  bulk.

She followed the man into the  house, through a small entrance-hall  into a large and lofty inner one, panelled _ in dark oak, hung with rich  curtains and with old oil paintings.  There was a wide fireplace adapted  lo modern requirements at otic end,  and in this a bright fire, was burning.  Sprawling on a handsome settee  upholstered in green arid gpld was a  tall man of thirty-five or so, with fair  hair, long fair moustache, and ��������� red-  rininicd blue eyes which lie turned  upon the girl with a bold stare.  Mabin was shown into a rather  barely furnished small ��������� room, .which  wjis apparently used as awaiting  ��������� room for chance visitors, as there  was a table with writing materials in  the" middle, and she was asked to  write her name and. business on a  plain sheet of paper ruled for the purpose.  After a moment's hesitation, she  wrote her name, "Mabin Wrest," and  under the word "Business" put "Secretary's situation." With that the  man went away, and she was left  wondering whether .the next thing  would be the return of the .messenger with the news that no secretary  was  wanted.  At the end of a few minutes, however, she heard a sort of shriek of  affected laughter in a woman's voice,  and then the voices of a man and a  woman conversing in the hall through  which she had come. Presently the  woman's voice said, with a note of  resignation: "Well, I've got to see  one of these secretary people. I'll  get rid of her as quickly as lean."  And then the door opened, and  there entered a woman to whom she  took an instinctive and strong dislike.  Yet there was nothing very forbidding about the appearance of the  lady whom Mabin rightly guessed to  be Lady Moorhampton. About 35  years of age, but looking younger by  the aid of judicious art, she was tall  and carried herself well. She- was  perhaps jathcr striking,in appearance  than handsome, her nose being rather  too long, and her mouth loose-lipped  and not good. But her bronze-colored hair was beautifully dressed, the  loose indoor gown of pale grey cloth  trimmed with otter and, opening over  a rose-colored petticoat of velvet  trimmed with dead gold, was handsome and becoming; and Mabin confessed to .herself that'-it was prejudice rather than anything more excusable which made her dislike the  lady before she opened her mouth.  When Lady Moorhampton spoke,  however, reason supported prejudice.  No woman who was quite admirable,  or quite lovable, would have addressed in such a supercilious tone another  woman of whom she knew nothing.  In every look and tone she showed the arrogance of a woman of superior rank speaking to an inferior  who must be made to feel her position.  "You have come about the post of  secretary to Lord Moorhampton," I  understand? Pray how did you hear  it was vacant? Do you come from  a registry office, or what?"  Mabin felt that the words and the  tone bit into her self-respect, and  for a moment the impulse possessed  her, to- reply indignantly, arid to say  that she wished to see Lord Moorhampton.  Some instinct, however, Warned her  not to give up the quest on which she  had come so quickly. So she bit her  lip, kept���������or appeared to keep ��������� her  temper; and answered with ostenta1  tious meekness:  "I heard about a secretary being  wanted quite by accident, and I have  come from no office. If the post is  filled, I must apologise for troubling  you."  There was something dignified in  the icy reserve of her tone, arid in  the manner in which she kept her  eyes cast down even while she addressed this arrogant lady. Her demeanor brought about a change in  Lady Moorhampton's manner, and  she burst into a modified version of  the high, shrieking laugh Mabin had  heard  in  the  hall.  The alternation of spasms of flight-  rncss with spasms of insolence seemed to Mabin so ill-bred that she was  surprised at the combination in a  woman of the position of Lady Moorhampton.  icrc's no need lo apologise," she  had brought her to the house, than  his alternately haughty and flippant-  mannered  wife.  Lady Moorhampton  w'cnl on:  "Can you  work a typewriter?"  "Yes."  "And   write  French?"  "Yes "  "And read aloud?"  ."Oh,   cr���������-J     think   so.

"Are you?, Then you may as well  come and see Lord .Moorhampton.  He is in his study, writing by himself. He'll sec you if you come with  me.    Come this way."  Before Mabin could make any objection, Lady . M-oorhampton. had  thrown open the door and was gliding across the floor of the hall, towards a curtained door, where she  turned, and, assuming an attitude  which, if affected, was graceful, waited for the girl to follow her. '  The man w'ho had been sprawling  on the settee had changed his position, and was now standing with his  back to.the fire, with his hands' behind his back and a cigar in his  mouth. J  "Hallo!" said he, addressing Lady  Moorhampton, but with his. eyes, fixed on Mabin.  Lady Moorhampton laughed with a  languishing  look,  She seemed to imply that she was  undergoing a very fatiguing ordeal  in this personally conducted expedition across the hall; and Mabiri, who  walked on stolidly as if noticing nothing, made up her mind more decidedly than ever that this was the  woman of all she had ever met the  'most-antipathetic-to her.  She followed her conductress behind the portiere and along a short  passage lighted by a window at the  extreme end.  "May I come in?" asked the ladj*,  stopping in front of one of the doors  anel assuming a voice of artificial  sweetness. ;      ������������������  There was no answer, and she  turned -tlie .handle and beckoned Mabin to follow her. The girl was  struck by the atmosphere of luxury  and case'which the apartment presented. Never before had she been  in a library so handsome or so cosy-  looking. The rich "colors'of the carpet, the harmonious tints of the  heavy curtains, of tlie massive furniture, struck her with admiration.  While the walls lined with filled  bookcases, the fire burning brightly  in a handsome hooded fireplace, the  two hounds lying asleep on a tiger-  skin on the hearth, all helped to give  an air of comfort and charm 'o a  room _ which, large as it was, gave  every indication vi being cosy, too.  The" window was open, and Lady  Moorhampton crossed the flooi- lo  look out. A stone terrace ran along  the back of the house, and from it as  Mabin could see there was a splendid  prospect of hill and dale, stream and  woodland.  "He must be in the grounds,' said  Lady Moorhampton in a tone of resignation as she went out, leaving  Mabin   alone   in   the   room.  The girl    looked    around her,    and  her  attention   was   caught   by  a   full  length   painting  in   oils     above     tlie  "But   I! hooded   mantelpiece  War Service badges to a' large number of Scouts in recognition of services rendered a short time ago when,  adopting the slogan "Every berry a  bullet," they went into the fruit farms  of Oakville district and took, the  place's ' of regular berry, pickers Who j  had enlisted for overseas service.

There are certain days during  childhood that one always remembeis  as milestones marking some events  which leave a lasting impression.  Tuesday, September 5th, will be-long  remembered by nine small boys who,  as Wolf Cubs, the junior organization  of the Boy Scouts' Association, received marked attention at the farewell rally from Canada's Chief Scout,  'His Royal Highness the Duke of  Connaught. Too young to take part  in the marching, these youngsters  were yet accorded a place on the parade ground. The little fellows stood  eagerly watching His Royal High-  ncss's movements, little dreaming  that the Chief Scout would sec them  at all. His Royal Highness finished  a close inspection of the Scouts, and  turning,, went direct to the little fellows, inspected them all and then  said: "You arc as good: as any of  them; good hick to you."

For she knew Ciprian, son of Lord j  Moorhampton, was the man with thci  fair beard. '  (To Be Continued.)  Care of British Graves  The following is an extract from a  letter received from a soldier at the  front: "Considerable care is exercised in the registration and upkeep of  the graves of British troops. I have  seen many such cemeteries which arc  really beautiful, each little plot being  marked with a wooden cross bearing  details of the brave fellow lying, beneath. The graves themselves are  often covered with a mass of flowers, bordered with a fresh green grass  edging."  more so, than the vegetables "grown  farther south. In the matter of potatoes considerable difficulty was experienced at first as they were very  wet and soggy. After persevering  for several j-cars, however, using the  Yukon seed, a fine potato was developed���������just as <good as those raised  in British Columbia. There arc now  many vegetable farms in the Yukon  in the vicinity of Dawson City and  some big crops are produced. Dr.  Malte saw potatoes on his trip there  that, he said should, run to 350 and  in some - cases '400 bushels to the  acre. .'���������'... ^  In the experiments, that will be  conducted next summer several new  varieties of vegetables and small  fruits will be tried out, as is now being done in the Peace River country.  There is hardly any grain grown  in the Yukon, but there-is some  wheat, and on Aug. 17 Dr. Malte says  that he saw wheat fully ripened  which " will.surpass anything in the  rest of the Dominion.  - The difficulty that has to be ''contended-with in the Yukon is Jie  breaking of. the ground. The frost  is quite'near the surface, and it takes  several seasons of cultivation before  the obstacles in this regard are overcome. Once this is accomplished,  however, the crops are just-as large,  if not larger, and the quality as good  as in any' other portion of the Dominion.  chuckles in this country at the way  in which the vigilance of our navy resulted in unexpected acquisitions to  our equine stocks.  "In dwelling on remount work .'n  Britain, it would be idle to look to  lh-- main British front for tangible  results of the manifold labors or the  heavy expenditure.

In addition to the ordinary elevators at country points are  a number of large terminal elevators  at Foit William and' Port Arthur,  one of which is a Dominion Govern-*  ment elevator, and Government terminal elevators located at Moose  Jaw, Saskatoon, Calgary and Vancouver.

The farmer may deliver his wheal  lo the elevator and receive cash for  it, or, if he thinks the market likely  to rise, he may store his wheat in the  elevator and secure a storage ticket  showing thajt he is entitled to a stated number of bushels of wheat of a  certain grade. This enables him to  sell his wheat when the market-is  most favorable.

Naval Supremacy  Great Britain is Taking No Chances  on the Naval Question  At the first burst of the war, seemingly by some providential accident,  Great Britain had the bulk of her  fighting ships at the one critical spot,  and the whole German naval force  was instantly paralyzed, as far *as immediate use was concerned. 'From  that time on has continued a far  greater shipbuilding contest than the  wildest imagination could forecast,  and in this contest England is hopelessly in the lead with practically every necessary condition in her favor.  She has many- times more men and  money, far better facilities, and complete freedom of trade with the entire world for materials. She is building whole squadrons and small fleets  of war vessels of various types.

Inexhaustible Reserves  German Expert Says Russia Can Continue War For Ever  The Vossischc Zcitung, of Berlin,  in a long article written by a military  expert, admits that the hope of a  breakdown of Russia for lack of reserves will never be realized. The  writer concludes that the Czar has  human material enough to continue  the war almost for ever;  "At the beginning of the war Russia had 172,000,000 inhabitants," the  expert says. "This means the population of the Russian Empire was almost three times as large as that of  Germany. The annual increase in  Russia amounts to more than two  million souls, against 900,000 in Germany. Under these conditions the  Czar has more than one million new  soldiers at his disposal every year,  while the recruits in Germany only  number  450,000 'at best.  "With the enormous birth rate of  47 per thousand inhabitants, Russia  is able to kcci) her army at its present  strength for ar unlimited time even  if more than a million soldiers should  be killed, totally disabled, or captured in a year. For Germany the loss  of a million men per year means a  serious weakening of the army, because only 450,000 men can be replaced.  "The exhaustion of the man power  of Russia-is out of the question, but  the breakdown of the colossus will  surely come as soon as England and  France are no longer able to furnish  the enormous^sums of money needed  by the Czar."'

Genuine must bear Signature  The Market Report  Contributed by Randall, Gee & Mitchell, Ltd., Grain Merchants,  Winnipeg  A careful study of conditions would  lead one to believe that the present  high levels do not exaggerate the  facts governing the crop situation.  Statistics on the Canadian crop estimate the pioduclion of wheat in this  country at one hundred and sixty-  seven'million bushels, or practically  one-half of last year's crop.  We must remember, however, that  this is vcry close to the average production. Then we have the American  crop, which is estimated at approximately six hundred million bushels,  which is the lowest average for a  number  of years.  Both crops are going to be made  up of a goodly quantity of vcry low  grade wheat. In fact, the early shipments from Manitoba points have  showed a very heavy run of feed,,  wheat. This condition is also true in  the Minneapolis maiket. Reports  from that centre coincide with the  statements of millers here on the  low average of flour production of  these low grades.  The result is that the milling enterprises will have to buy up the  good wheat, that will mix with these  low grades and standardize the flour.  This accounts for the present widespread buying by the millers, which  would naturally make the cash situation very strong. This is evidenced  by the premiums that are being paid  for the top grades of Nos. 1, 2 and 3.  Market conditions for the past  week in Winnipeg have been of a  vcry narrow trading proposition.  Speculation is limited, and with this  feature out of the market it has forced those who want the actual wheat  to advance prices each and every  time they try to increase their holdings. Their offerings due to the narrow market appear as a burden, the  net result has been a very nervous  market with wild fluctuations.  The war situation continues to be  a big.'factor, and there docs not appear to be any doubt but what successes of the Allies in the Balkans  will have'a depresing effect. However, it remains to be seen (should  the Allies meet with these successes  we wish for) whether Russia's crop,  will be dumped on to the market as  rapidly as anticipated.  The general opinion among the  trade is that while wc might see a  great deal higher price for wheat, still  those that own it should lake advantage of present levels to market their  holdings.

When the rebellion  broke out in Lucknow all the Europeans fled to the Residency. On their  way they came across a private of  the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, who was on sentry duty at an  outpost. They urged him to, make  his escape with" them, but he refused  to' leave his post and was killed. His  name happened to be Tommy Atkins  and whenever a deed of exceptional  daring was performed during the Mutiny the doer was said to be a "regular Tommy Atkins." Since then the  expression has been'used in a more  general sense, and now applies to all  the British soldiers.  Minard's   Liniment  Cures  Dandruff.  Lauds British Airmen  Frenchman Says Even the Germans  Admit Enemy Superiority  This was how a French officer,  just back from the Somme, described the British flying champion in the  course of an interview with an English newspaper man. In admiring  words he related how the British  have wrested the mastery of the air  from German fliers: "Your- brave  aviators," he said, "have come into  their own at last, and France today  salutes  them as the lords of the air.  "Even the German fliers who have  been captured by us have had the  chivalry to admit that the British  airmen have accomplished some noteworthy performances. Not only have  your intrepid aviators flown far over  "the German defences and defied the  anti-aircraft guns, but single-handed  they have' fought and beaten off as  many as three and four Fokkcrs at a  time.  "The German fliers, who months  ago looked with contempt on your  airmen, respect and admire them as  the result of bitter experience. That  great young British aviator who sent  Captain Inimclmann to iris death has  become a terror to the Bochc. You  ought to have him on all your picture postcards. Like all your men  he is a real hero, and France is proud  and gratified for their invaluable cooperation."  Find Lost War Papers  One of the curious requirements  growing out of the rush of war work  is the need of a staff of "Searchers"  at the War Oflice to look up lost documents. The "searchers" make their  irounds early every morning. "Very  often in the pressure of many kinds  of work, an important, war record  will get laid aside or. covered up on  some desk, and it is the business of  the "searchers" to ferret out every  lost record and get it back again in j  the regular channels.  What He Thought  A new.railroad through Louisiana  strikes some of the towns about a  mile from the business .centre," so it  is. necessary to run a bus line. A  salesman -. stopping in , one- of the  towns asked the old darky bus driver about-it:  "Say, Uncle, why have they got the  -depot  away down here?"      '  After a moment's hesitation the old  darky replied: "Ah dunno, boss, unless dey wanted to git it on de railroad."  Criminal Folly to Keep up Zepp Raids  It appears that the Zeppelin which  was brought down in England on  the occasion of the latest raid was  not struck by shots from the_ groundf  but was wrecked by an aviator attacking from above. The young man  has been awarded the Victoria Cross  for his feat, and it certainly is one of  the great events of the war. This is  the second time an English aviator  has destroyed a Zeppelin in this manner. I't-us likely to revive faith in the  ability of aeroplanes to develop an  adequate defense against Zeppelins.  A few such experiences as that will  tend to discourage Zeppelin raids.  The British, has evidence that a second Zeppelin was damaged, at least,  if it did not go down in the sea. The  fete'of the crew when a Zeppelin falls  is so terrible and the loss, both human and material, is so serious, that  it would be criminal folly to keep  risking these ci aft in mere attempts  to terrify and break the spirit of a  civilian population.���������From the Buffalo Express.  **.1I  "What are, you playing, daughter?"
