It is a treaty between the United  States and Great Britain for the  protection and conservation of migratory birds.  Such an agreement will bc welcomed   by   bird  lovers   everywhere.  The idea is said to have originated with John M. Wallace, state  game and fish commissioner of Alabama, who for years has urged up-  ' on the powers at Washington the  need for such a treaty.  Nomadic wild life docs not recognize cither state or national boundaries.'  In their annual migration thousands of birds and waterfowl have  paid thc penalty, due to lack of uniformity of laws  for  their protection.  Wild geese, wild duck, snipe,  woodcock, plover and other birds  have been slain by the wholesale  during their brief sojourn within any  particular territory iu which they  rested. .''���������  A generation ago wild pigeons  daikcned the sky at their migratory  period.    But they are  seen no  more.  This treaty is designed to _ give  mutual protection to those, winged  creatures. It has been ratified by  thc law-making bodies of all Canadian provinces' and the British Ambassador has been instructed by London  to sign  the treaty. %  The United States Senate must now  ratify it, and'we feel sure that it will  not delay its approval of this_ beneficent measure.���������Quebec Chronicle.

On theday    after    the    atrocious  fyerits-which ' she describes a French-  jfornan, in' a letter    from    Lille, says  thc preceding three weeks, and particularly the preceding eight days,  had been a period of frightful anguish  and moral torture among the mothers  who had seen their children removed, with a refinement of cruelty, on  thes pretext, that Britain was starving  Germany, and that the French population would not work for their conquerors.  It was thought too kind to take  whole families, so from one to five  members were taken from each ���������  men, women or children. To prolong  the anguish the town was taken quarter by quarter without notice.  ��������� At daybreak bodies of soldiers,  headed by their bands, armed with  machine guns and rifles, came to lake  away the women and children, whither  they d.id not know or would not say.  The victims were captured in their  homes, in the .streets, on the tramways; aud they were seen no morc.  . The remaining women were terrified, and when a number of girls and  children had disappeared the French  civil and religious officials protested.  Then posters were put up warning  the population to prepare, for evacuation, each person to have not morc  than 66 lbs of luggage! They were  to stand at their doorways, and certain  of  them would bc  chosen.,  The choice took interminable days  and nights ��������� a horrible nightmare.  The Frenchwoman describes how an  officer c passed _ through the _ Fives  Quarter, pointing to thc victims he  chose, who were then led lo church  or school, and thence to the station.  During the following day the pitiful  flock was taken away, whither or for  what work- no one knew, but crying  "Vive la France!" and singing the  "Marseillaise."  The Maine' took fire, and by the  light of the flames the domiciliary  visits recommenced. From 1,500 to  2,000, many of them girls of seventeen years, were taken away daily.

At Roubaix the German officers refused to do their brutal work at night  time. They were men from Verdun  and some of theni said they would  rather have starved in the trenches.  What the British  Navy Has Done  The Herculean Task That Has Been  Accomplished  Here is a list of the more important accomplishments of the British  navy in the present war:  1. It has bottled up thc German  fleet in its harbors. Picture what  would have happened if the Germans had been able lo use their  powerful navy to attack thc Allies'  coasts. Calais wfculd bc Prussian  and Paris a tributary to Berlin.  2. It has kept the trade routes  open, so that the Allies may obtain  food and supplies. That does not  appear difficult on paper, but think  what it means���������all commerce raiders had to be swept from the ocean  and kept off. One escaped some  months/.ago,, and. the papers of the  world were '.headlined'-with the news!  The submarine blockade had to be  smashed. It was smashed. The English are catching submarines iii their  own waters as fast as the Germans  are building them. Since the outbreak ol the war only 10' per cent,  of Eng'lish shipping has been destroyed by torpedoes. Finally, the waterways must daily be swept of mines.  When you arrive in England you will  see the waters off the coast swarming  with trawlers, fishing for mines, and  you will find your path neatly cleaned that you may pass���������for the Germans are not over particular as to  mines.  _ 3. It has carried on naval operations , in every part of the world;  Observe some of the more famous  scenes: Falkland- Islands, Samoa,  Flanders, Tsing-tao, Suez, Dcdea-  ghatch, -the Persian Gulf, East Africa,  Saloniki, the Baltic. It' must be  ready for anywhere at any time. To  appreciate this, * spread out a ' map  and imagine yourself in charge of  those operations; and do no't_forget  that all the time you must hold the  German fleet in port and keep the  seas clean!  4. Thc navy has convoyed the  Allied, troops across every ocean.  Here is a specific case: For two  years it has convoyed Kitchener's  army back and forth across the  Channel���������that.is, every day���������and lias  never lost a ship! There would be  no British offensive today were it not  for the navy.  5. It has blockaded Germany. Violent arguments are indulged in as to  whether or not Germany can be  starved or whether or not to call the  blockade a blockade. But the fact  remains that -the Germans arc not  only unable lo obtain munitions,  food and supplies from outside  sources, but also their oversea commerce has been paralyzed. Where  are the German merchant ships of today?* Where are the German goods?  One may . discuss thc theories and  technicalities of a blockade indefinitely.

Upon the arrival of the grain at  Fort William, another set of government officials take hold of it. All  signs of leaking or damage are recorded. The depth of grain in the*  car is measured. The "unloading,  lhe weighing, thc cleaning, the binning and the shipping are all supervised.

It is not too much to say  that every device that makes for the  proper, treatment of grain and for  efficiency, dispatch and accuracy in  handling is provided in these elevators.

Taking this into consideration, then, it is not surprising to  find most mothers fitting the young girl in her teens with cotton and  linen frocks for the early school days and expecting them to last thru-  out the winter. But before one considers the practical frock of linen,,  glance for a minute at the pretty party frock, which every little girl  sighs for and ought to have.

It is neither desirable that the
present methods and practices in
agricultural production should be
followed..,-;..indefinitely nor probable
that thcy will not soon change. As
surely as the period of ranching was
succeeded by the era of wheat growing will the development of niixed
farming supersede exclusive grain
growing. The "suinmcrfallow," a
w. necessary part of grain growing un-
li- der the present system, while immc-
9l diately profitable, is immensely wasteful of -nitrogen and humus and has
already developed a serious condition
known locally as "drifting," which
-.: means that the finely pulverized top
soil is readily transported by strong-
winds, to the,loss of the owner, and
his neighbor as well, if,it contains
seeds of noxious weeds. Exclusive
grain growing favors the spread of
noxious . weeds and interferes with
'their control. Live stock farming is
the only permanently successful and
economically profitable way of dealing wjth the problem of noxious
weeds and "drifting" soils, and while
the publicgenerally may not be prepared to admit the fact, it is becoming more and more apparent. I may
illustrate my point by referring to
wild oats,. under our conditions one
of our most serious'weeds, which
soon ceases to be a problem when
crops of oats or fall rye arc grown
and used. as hay. The "hay" would
be too abundant on many farms to bc
consumed by the present supply of
live stock and would be expensive to
market, besides having a very limit
ed market value as forage. But if
sufficient stock were kept to convert
the crop into milk and beef, and wool
and mutton, greatly different results
would be obtained.
Live stock farming as compared
with grain growing is more dependent for its success upon adequate
supply of water, and this more than
anything else is the determining factor with . regard to the number of
stock whicli may be maintained on
any farm, or in any district in Saskatchewan. Important sections of
the area which I have described as
being adapted to wheat growing are
still inadequately supplied with
water for stock, and until this problem is solved the farmer, cannot be
expected to progress in stock raising.
Conditions differ from the balmy
days of thc ranching industry, when
the rancher's corrals were near some
water course and his stock ranged
the plains. Unless a local supply of
water is available it is not now expedient under farming conditions to
drive the stock even a few miles to
water, nor to draw water to the
stock. It is right, however, to ray,
that, in many districts where water is
lacking, thc attempts to obtain it have
been insufficient to prove the non-existence of a suitable water supply,
and it is not unlikely that more persistent efforts will bring success.
Much is possible in providing a water
supply by collecting the run off from
the    fields and    slopes into    natural
nance Department; the sewing on
will be carried out regimentally without expense to the public.
Boy Scout Notes
How Boy Scouts Can Become Useful
to the Public and to Themselves
Recent events have shown that usefulness is one of the principal assets
of the work of the Boy Scouts' Association in Canada. It is one of the
aims of the organization to teach the
Scouts services useful to the' public
and handicrafts useful to themselves.
A short time ago we heard of how
Boy Scouts in the vicinity of Toronto-went to the rescue .bf .the berry-
growers of that district. They not
only relieved the scarcity of labor situations in that particular district, but
they rendered a distinct service to the
nation. Now we hear that the 1st
Boy Scout Troop of Creelman, Sask.,
is building a Scout hall, which is to
be used as a meeting place and club-
room. Two friends of the movement
kindly placed two building lots at the
disposal of the boys, and while the
little building is slowly going up on
one corner, the rest of the property
is maturing a fine crop of potatoes
and other vegetables which will go
a long way. toward paying for the
interior furnishings.- Besides their
income from their garden, the Creel-
man Scouts have added considerably
to their bank account by work of
various  kinds  dene  for the  town.
"He was only sixteen, but he stood
by his gun to the last." Such is tlie
story of one brave Scott, John Trav-
ers Cornwell, who served his country
on the "Chester"' during the battle of
Horn's Reef.. He died of wounds
which he received early in the battle.
Of him "the captain of the Chester
says: "His devotion to duty was an
example for all of us. The wounds
whicli resulted in his death within a
short time were received within the
first few minutes of the action. He
remained steadily-at his most exposed
post at ..'the gun' waiting for orders.
All but two of the ten crew were
killed or wounded, and he was the
only one who was in such an exposed position. But he felt he might
be needed���and indeed he might have
been, so he stayed there, standing
and waiting, under heavy fire, with
just, his own brave heart and God's
help  to  support him."
Tor this act of heroism���which has
added to the achievements of Scouts
during the war���the Chief Scout has
awarded the Bronze Cross to commemorate Cornwell's splendid example to the Brotherhood of fearlessness in the presence of death.
His Royal Highness the Duke of
Connaught, Chief Scout of the Boy
Scouts Association in Canada, while
on a recent visit to the Western provinces, inspected thc 3rd Brandon
troop, which is composed of Indians.
He mentioned that this troop was
the 'first Indian troop he had seen in
Canada, and he expressed great pleasure at meeting them and he complimented them on their fine bearing.
He also spoke of the significance to
the Dominion and Empire, of the
blending of the original inhabitants
and the British born, brought about
by the Boy Scouts' Association.
Motor Cars Depicted in the Vision of
Nahum the Prophet
It would be ,idifficult to locate any
district of Manitoba proper in which
motor cars have not made an appearance, yet many enjoying the conveniences of an automobile do not perchance realise that the method of
propelling vehicles by motor power
represents a feature of movement the
basic principle of which has returned
to' mankind following centuries amid
the abyss of lost art. And this claim
is not without corroboration in pages
of holy writ. A perusal of the scriptural reference under allusion will
lend color to the idea that some form
of automobilar traffic was existent,,in
ahcient- days. The application of. motor-driven machinery to warfare-is
depicted in the vision of Nahum, the
Elkosite, concerning the burden of
Nineveh. In the account as given by
this seer of the military muster of the
Medes and Babylonians against the
city of Nineveh, may be read the remarkable reference to motorism as
recorded in the fourth verse of>the
second   chapter  of   Nahum,:-
"The chariots shall rage in the
streets; they shall jostle one another
in the broad ways; they shall seem
like torches; they shall run like the
The"word "jostle" may, at least the
writer is thus informed by an Heb-
raical scholar in Winnipeg, signify a
variety of meanings. Indeed the ex-,
pression may represent "a passing
swiftly without any particular reason
to and fro." Therefore, is it not possible to surmise reference is made by
the prophet to some description "of
conveyance utilised in days of .old, a
vehicle the propulsion of which' was
of similitude in character to that furnished by motor cars of the present
decade?���J. D. A. Evans.

New York  Has Extravagant Spenders, But Some Thrifty People

the sums to the credit of depositors

648,000, the withdrawals being $293,-

withdrawals was almost $21,000,000.
In the preceding twelve months tlie
withdrawals exceeded the deposits by
$24,707,000. The difference in "the experience of the two periods is, no
doubt, a reflex of the difference ��� in
commercial conditions that prevailed.
The outstanding fact is the size of

American Wife of French Artist Tells
of the Pillaging of Her Home
From the pen of Frances Wilson
Huard, the American-born wife of
Charles Huard, a noted French artist, and at present .official painter of
the war to the 6th Army of France,
has come one of the most intimate
and vivid stories of the , war. Mine.
Huard saw little of the war, hardly
any actual fighting, but she has the
gift of telling in simple words what
she did see, and of suggesting unseen, horrors that surrounded her.
When war broke out she was left
alone in hcr< fine chateau some sixty
miles, northeast of Paris., She was
attended by only two or three servants. Almost before she had, time to
escape the great German invasion
swept toward her. At last she abandoned her chateau, only a few hours
before the German advance guard
reached it, and escaped in a cart with
a few personal belongings. Thc
.sound of the guiis were never out of
her ears as she fled, and it remained
with her when the tide turned and
she returned to her chateau. Her
description of the scene that met her
eyes is one of the finest passages in
the book, "My, Home" in the Field of
Honor," and portions of it are well
���worth quoting.
Some account of the German treatment of her chateau appeared in th-
press more than a year ago, and readers will remember the incident of the
American woman fondly trying to
protect her desk containing nothing
but some packages of love letters by
spreading an American flag over it.
Speaking of her home when she entered it after it had been in the possession of the Germans for a few
days, she says: "How can one describe it? . . . Above all, I would
have it understood that the chateau
was first occupied by General von
Kluck and his staff. The names crayoned on the doors of my bedrooms
in big red letters bear testimony ���
as well as some soiled underlinen and
a glassentuch marked v-K.���and numerous papers stamped with the Imperial seal. These latter are all orders or reports belonging to the 3rd
Army Corps, and were left behind in
the precipitation of the flight." It is
pleasing to think that Mine. Hurad
has her trophies of that occupation
as part payment for thc wholesale
looting of her home that was conducted by thc  Germans.
She continues: "As now I am able
to see the matter in a cooler frame
of mind, I realize that not only was
efficiency carried out in warfare, but
in looting���for it seems that everything that we possessed was systematically classified as good, bad or": indifferent���the former and the latter
being carefully packed into huge
army supply: carts, which for five, long
days stood backed up against our
doorstep, leaving only when completely laden with spoils. Then what
remained was thrown into corners
and wilfully soiled and smeared in
the most-disgusting and nauseating
manner. A proof of the above-mentioned efficiency can be given in a
description of my husband's studio,
where-I found all the frames standing empty ��� the canvasses having
been carefully cut from them with a
razor and rolled for convenience
sake. Useless to mention that tapestries, silver, blankets and household
as well as personal linen were considered trophies of war. That to-me
is far more comprehensible than the
fact that our chateau being installed
with all modern sanitary conveniences
these .were purposely ignored,, and
corridors and corners, satin window
curtains and even beds were used for
the most ignoble purposes."
"Everywhere," she writes, "were
sickening traces of sodden drunkenness. On the table beside each bed
(most of them now bereft of their
mattresses) stood champagne bottles
and half-emptied glasses. The straw-
strewn drawing-room much resembled
a cheap beer garden after a Saturday
night's riot, and the unfortunate upright piano was not only decked with
empty champagne bottles, but also
contained some two hundred or three
hundred pots of jam, poured down
inside, glass and all, probably just
for a joke. Oh. Kultur! I think that
and the fact that most of my ducks
and small animals had been killed
and left to lie and rot, were thc things
that most angered me, and every
time the guns boomed prayed ardently for revenge."
Mme. Huard found her little rosewood desk mercilessly jabbed with
bayonets and the contents strewed
from one end of the village to the
other; while the Stars and Stripes had
been unspeakably defiled. The story
she tells could be duplicated so far as
facts are concerned by the owners of
a thousand chateaux in France, and
the still uglier stories of . lust and
cruelty are a matter of official record.
How anyone can read them and imagine that France would now or at
any future time consent to any peace
that was in the nature of a draw it is
difficult to imagine. And should
France insist that when the German
hordes are driven across their own
frontiers they shall bc made to feel
some of the horrors they have.inflicted upon her non-combatant citizens,
Ave need not wonder.

can convey to the brain the significance of nearly imperceptible pressures when testing the fittings in the
gauge. The importance of nicety
carried to this extraordinary degree
need not be emphasized; it ' is essential to the efficiency of the munitions that are already, as we hope,
playing a de.cisive part in the war.
But how is such exactitude to be
obtained? At an important aeroplane factory it was found that . in
the production of details requiring
extreme delicacy of perception, the
proportion of rejections, of the output of ordinary workers was so high
that some reriiedy "was needed, and
the means eventually adopted- for ensuring a higher standard of precision
were the engagement of women and
girls of a higher social class than
those previously employed. This succeeded so well that at thc present
time no other workers are accepted.
The ministry of munitions is equally alive to the importance of securing
the assistance of women whose dainty
ways of life and higher education
have developed their perceptions in
a manner uhattained by the average
manual worker. There is, in fact,
any amount of scope for such women in the government works and
war factories, and it may be pointed
out that in taking up such patriotic
work they benefit the country in more
ways than one. They help the insistent movement towards economy
by becoming producers rather than
consumers; they check the depletion
of the normal industries of the country resulting from the rush of shopgirls, factory hands, and others into
munition work; and, when'the time
comes for demobilization, they will
ease the problem of getting all those
workers back to their own trades.
The more women there are of independent means to return to their own
homes, the less the difficulty will be
of conveying the multitude of munition workers, who have come long
distances, and in many cases will
have to travel from one end of the
country to the other.
There is another consideration that
should appeal to the many women
engaged in social work. ' Thcy will
gain a personal experience of factory
conditions that should bc of . great
assistance to their efforts after the
war. The training centres, 60 or 70
of which have been established under the; ministry of munitions, aided
by education authorities, all oyer
Great Britain, are run on factory
lines, and are intended to prepare
students for the regulations preyail-
ing in the government works and
���controlled factories. This course is
given gratuitously, and many ladies
who have taken it and passed on to
thc machine shop, where they begin
with a wage of $5 to .$6.25 a week,
have delighted in the interest "and
in the satisfaction of doing indispensable work for the country. The
schools are managed by principals,
who take a personal interest in their
workers, and in some cases are regarded as the fathers of the large
families in their, charge. The classes
are held four hours a day, so the
preliminary stage is not very onerous,
and these institutions have already
been the means of introducing 30,000
helpers to the serious business of
supplying, our troops with shells.
In the , workshop, bf course, the
hours are longer, perhaps eight to
ten hours a day, in some places with
compulsory overtime, but the conditions vary in different factories. The
modest wage just mentioned may be
regarded as the probable payment
for the first two or three weeks, but
aptitude soon brings its reward, and
whon the novice shows that she can
be trusted with a machine, she is
put on piecework, which, if quick
and clever, she may expect to bring
her a remuneration of $15 or more a
week, gained by munition workers;
but it should be understood that these
instances arc exceptional, and due to
peculiar circumstances, not unconnected with the wiles of trade union-

Big Profits From Cows
Setting Up Phenomenal Instances ot
Dairy. Capacity
We   ran  across   a .senseless   article .
the other day in an agriculture paper-.-
which undertook to prove, by select-   ,
ing the best cows in the Jersey Reg--,
istrar  of Merit, what  a  paying busi- -
ness dairying is.    There is altogether
too much of this exploiting of a few   '
cows    in  each  of  the  dairy    breeds, -.
cows  that are  simply "born' phenom-
cnons.    Nine hundred and ninety-nine
out   of   every, thousand   cows   in  the
country are  not    represented  by the
one  thousandth    cow  that    overtops
them all, and the plain common sense
of the  nine  hundred and ninety-nine
farmers  out  of  every    thousand  discounts  such  talks.    The great industry  of    dairying is    carried  on    and
must    be.   measured and - understood
from   the ^standpoint .of  the  farmer's
cow.     Setting up  phenomenal instances  of    dairy    capacity    a long  way
ahead of the farmer, when he knows
he  cannot  reach   them,  creates  a  revulsion  of sentiment in  the  mind  of
the dairy farmer ofltimes.
We are doing business with cows
that, if thcy produce on the average
300 lbsC of butterfat per year, aie a
long way ahead of the average. Yet
that mark is fairly well attainable by
the ordinary farmer if he will, only
breed up to it and feed up to it. From-
such cows with the chance of a constant improvement there is a mod-
crate profit to be had. -     ,
The farmer must strive for the.300-
pound cow as thc average and not the
500 or 1,000-pound cow as an exception. Words about such cows-are
much, more easily multiplied than the
cows   themselves.���Breeder's   Gazette.
Removing Courtesy From Trade
A movement is now popular in
German business circles to suppress
all unnecessary terms in business
correspondence, such as the introductory phrase "Sir," "Sirs," "Gentlemen," and the concluding phrases,
"Yours truly," "With the assurance-
of," etc. To that end certaiiv firms
attach slips to their correspondence
requesting the recipient to reciprocate in this matter.
The elimination of salutations and
closing phrases has also been -tdopt-
cd by some firms in the ' United
States, and has been the intra-de-
partmcntal method of the Department
of Commerce at Washington for a
year past.

It is satisfactory to know that a
great deal is being done for thc welfare of women in the munition factories, the Young Women's Christian
Association showing an amount of
energy and discrimination in this
way comparable to the excellent work
of the Y.M.C.A. on behalf of our
soldiers. Particularly in the' provision of rest and refreshment huts.
In many of the factories also the
workers have their own canteens,
where excellent food is obtained, and
is enjoyed with a zest that is the
special privilege of hard workers.
Life in the factories brings the
workers, subject in a measure to their
own preference, into association with
all sorts and conditions of people,
and those who know how to make
thc best of these circumstanies find
abur.dant interest in thc widened
outlook on life. Automatically, however, there tends to be a segregation

In Canada the wholesale prices of  272 commodities averaged over 8  pcr cent, higher than in 1914 and 9  pcr cent, higher than iri 1913, while  the retail prices of some thirty foods  were 2 pcr cent, higher than in 1914  and 7 pcr cent, higher.than in 1913,  allowing for the importance of each  article in family consumption. By  j December, 1915, however, the steep  rise had brought thc index number  of wholesale prices, to a point 20 per  cent, higher than in* July, 1914,' while  retail food prices had -risen 10 per  cent, during the same period.  The index number of wholesale  prices stood at 148.0 for the year, as  compared with 136.1 for 1914, and  1135.5 for 1-913, but by December, 1915,  ;had reached 161.1, as compared with  134.6 for. July, 1914. A weekly family budget of food averaged $7.86 for  1915, $7.73 for 1914 and $7.33 for 1913,  but for December, 1915, stood at 08.13  as compared with $7.42 in July, 1914.  Il may bc noted that the rise in  prices has. continued during the current year as shown from month to  month in thc Labor-Gazette. The index number of wholesale prices  reached 180.9* for May, but declined  slightly thereafter, metals, chemicals  and certain materials being lower. In  retail food prices thc w*eckly budget  reached $8.6,3 for August, there being  a decline only in July when midsummer conditions lowered prices very-  slightly:  In other countries retail food prices also rose steeply, thc rise from  the beginning of the war to the end  of 1915 being calculated as high as  113 pcr cent, for Austria, 83 per cent,  for Germany, over 30 per cent, in the  Netherlands, Norway and Italy, and  44 per cent, in Great Britain. In  Australia thc rise was nearly 30 per  cent., as a result of. drought, while  in New Zealand it was only 16 pcr  cent. In Japan, prices were lower '  than'" in "1914 and 1913.  "The results of .the great rises were  considerable increases in the cost of  living, particularly in the expenditure  on foods. In clothing; house furnishings, etc., stocks in the hands of  manufacturers and dealers were often  sufficient to prevent great rises for  some time; even a year or more, but  in food increases were immediately  felt. At the beginning of 1915 staple  foods were substantially higher than  before the war, though in many cases  somewhat lower'than the high levels  reached during the few weeks of uncertainty and speculation whicli, followed its  outbreak."  The report shows that the rising  prices were accompanied by increased activity in industry and trade.  "Not only did the needs for the prosecution of the war make necessary  increased production in many lines  and new production in goods never  before attempted or thought of, b'ut.  production was renewed in many  lines and in many districts abandoned previously owing to the poor re;-  turns normally "obtainable. These  changes again had-great influence in  stimulating other branches of industry and trade, causing higher prices.  This reaction was soon experienced  in ��������� many lines at first depressed by  war conditions. In Canada; wheat,  oats, flour, cheese, butter, packed  meats, pulp and paper first felt the  stimulation of Increased demand due  to war conditions^ but these were  soon followed by'wool, fish, leather,  zinc, copper, chemicals, New Brunswick lumber, linseed oil, and later  iron and steel as well as most metals  and metal products. In the latter  part of 1915 the upward movement  was particularly strong in mcfcals,  chemicals and wool, while in jute, .  silk, rubber, etc., among imported  materials  the  rise was marked."  i  Quality in Hides  Why Russian Hides Are the Best and  the  Reason   for   It.  It is worth while for even thc nontechnical Canadian to know that Russian hides arc preferred in America  la those front Argentina, and why  this is so. The South American  hides���������what arc called "country"  hides���������arc vcry largely marred by  little holes, or arc "pitted" as a result of insect burrowings. Thcy are  also often marred by long scars, the  result of scratches. Pitted hides do  not take a grain or clear finish. Thc  man who buys a pair of shoes would.  not like a sole witli little holsc in it;  consequently thc shoe manufacturer  has to finish thc leather by buffing  and filling up the pits.  Russian hides are remarkably free  from pitting, and will takc a clear  grain finish. For this reason also  fewer Russian skins have to bc rejected when high-grade shoes are to  be made up. It is an intercstirv*:  prospect that after thc war Russia  may bc able to sell large quantities of  hides accumulated in storage because  of  the  suspension! of  exports  caused  by thc war.  .1  I  J, THE     GfXZETTE.

Mr. Lloyd George Contrasts Present  Conditions of the Contending  Armies .  **Mr. David Lloyd George, Secretary  of State for War, in speaking in London a few days ago, contrasted what  he termed the very extraordinary  change in a couple of months in the  relative positions of the Entente Allies and the Central Powers on all the  fronts except Mesopotamia, where  climatic conditions had kept the British  forces   quiescent.  Mr. Lloyd George said the criticisms of the British operations on  the Somme front, on thc ground of  their failure' to break through the  German lines, were unjustified. The  Germans, having two alternatives,  said Mr. Lloyd. George, chose thc" alternative of bringing tro.ops and  guns from Verdun to prevent the  British from breaking through.  "That suited our purpose," the  War Secretary continued. "It relieved the pressure on Verdun and-  prcvcnlcd thc enemy from pouring  his forces into the Russian theatre to  support the Austrians against General  Brusiloff's thrust.  "The German accounts . of . our  losses on the Somme arc ludicrously  exaggerated.' Our losses, though  deplorable, have' been relatively low  as compared with those of the Germans. The French and ourselves have  captured "positions on the Somme  from whence the course of the campaign is visible, and- I -think in thc  dim distance we.can see the end.  "France is equipped and Russia "is  rapidly . becoming equipped. Italy's  equipment has amazed her best  friends. Germany has missed her  chance and she knows it. It would  be a mistake to .underrate the nature  of our task, which' requires all of  our resources.  "But surveying the .whole situation, and upon the advice of those  more competent than myself to express an opinion, I do not hesitate  to say that what'this country and her  allies have to do is to march steadily  together and work together loyally  as they have done- in the past to ensure that victory will rest on their  banners."  Allied Torpedo  Sank the Karlsruhe  Second    Officer's   Book    Solves   the  Mystery of "German Cruiser's  Fate  Captain Aust, second officer in  command of the German cruiser  Karlsruhe, has published a book entitled "War Adventures of the Karlsruhe," stating that on November 4,  1914, when the Karlsruhe was lying  in latitude 10.7 north, 55.25 west, she  was torpedoed by an invisible craft.  The ship broke in two and sank immediately with her commander and  many-of the crew.  The Karlsruhe was accompanied by  thc steamers Indriani and Rio Negro as colliers, which rescued many  of the crew. Thc Indriani reached  Norway and the Rio Negro arrived in  a German harbor later.  This solves one of the most puzzling mysteries of thc sea brought  about by the war. It is the first  definite news of the cruiser's destruction. Late last ycar dispatches from  German sources said wreckage from  the Karlsruhe had been washed  ashore on'the Scandinavian coast.  ��������� "Pass"  The other day, writes a correspondent in Paris, as I was coming out of  the .Metro, I found a small boy playing at sentry at the gates.

When it is a question of the  judgment of God, God's Word knows  nothing of mercy. Our people are on  a false path if thcy now desire to  build golden .bridges for the enemy.  God has put the sword of justice into  our han'd, and we still see no sign  anywhere that He calls us to lay it  down. Therefore we must not become weak or weary. If we do not  recognize the voice and thc ways of  God, a feeble and imperfect peace  might become a judgment on ourselves. God has placed in our hands  all means to defeat the enemy. We  have   submarines     enough   to  Popular belief lo' the contrary,  there -is no difference in the nutritive qualities of eggs with dark shells  and those \.itli light. Their flavor  is affected by the food of the fowd  for good or for evil. Exhaustive experiments by well-equipped investi-  to ��������� gators prove that thc egg deserves  nt- its reputation as an easily assimilated and highly nutritious food if eaten raw or lightly cooked. Such experiments also show that eggs "at  twelve cents a dozen arc a cheap  source of nutrients; at sixteen cents,  somewhat expensive, and at twenty-  five cents and over, highly-extravagant. Thc basis of comparison was  thc market price of standard flesh  foods considered in relation to their  nutritive elements. But there is a  physiological constituent of eggs  whicli is of great value, and which  defies the search of the scientist or  the inquisition of the statistician, and  that is their palatability. Unless a  food, however rich in proteins, is relished, it loses much of its valuc,  while, per contra, a less chemically  desirable food that is enjoyed becomes valuable by reason of that  fact.'  '.

But even of morc  importance to consider is the vcry abnormal conditions existing iu the  world's wheat situation, these arc  bullish in a period of great inflation  of values,, and wc must also consider  the big decrease in thc Canadian crop  as compared to last year, with a possible decrease lo below normal production.  Thc situation, of course, is not as  desperate as il sounds because last  ycar we harvested, of a sort, a great  deal morc than was required to meet  all commercial demands, and the surplus gives us a margin of safely. It  is a surplus, however, that eases to  some degree an acute situation and  not a surplus that contributes any  depressive influence on the price. Wc  have not only our own wants to fill,  but there will bc contributions lo the  world's requirements regardless of  any decided change in economic conditions abroad and these contributions will, with domestic needs, takc  the slack out of tnc wheat pit.  Whether speculation will receive a  fresh impetus from the government  report is o'pen to question, not because the showing will fail to bc vcry  bullish, but because the high price  level intimidates buying for a still  greater rise. It is purely, a commercial market with the strength in the  cash wheat department a healthy  symptom.  Wire information from outside  markets indicates that there is a tremendous export business being worked. In addition to the large export,  the local" milling situation at Minneapolis has forced that market to  reach out in all directions in an effort  to obtain choice milling wheat to use  with the inferior wheat that is being  shipped from the spring wheat country,, in-order-to hold tip the standard  of their-flour. In one.day they worked 100 cars from the winter wheat  country, paying the highest premium  on thc crop.  The one factor that is liable to depress prices is success by the Allies  in the Balkans. This would remind  the trade of , the Russian wheat that  is held in store awaiting the opening  of the Dardanelles and remove from  the market the excellent export buying powers that arc now very much  in evidence.  il.

One  Practice of Giving Free Publicity Is  Being Abandoned  Newspaper publishers arc feeling  vcry keenly the effect of the war. An  impression prevails* that additional  circulation because of war news effects the falling-off in advertising and  the various increases in thc cost of  publication; but this is a mistake. The  additional cost of white paper morc  than wipes off the profit on additional  circulation. In the United Kingdom  thc extra expense has been met in  part by, decreasing thc size of the  papers and in part by increasing thc  rates, and this is also true in many  parts of thc United States and "Canada. At a recent meeting of the  Newspaper Publishers' Association  of British Columbia, held in Vancouver, it was decided lo discontinue the  free publication of advertising matter.  The Victoria papers have been exceedingly liberal with free publicity,  in this respect going far beyond papers elsewhere havc done. Thcy  print weekly vcry many notices that  arc paid for in all other cities. This  practice will bc abandoned and notice  to that effect will be found in another column.

How nbou t  the South African war?  In a few days Mr. Brewster  will probably be called  upon to  take  over  the  management of  provincial affairs.     He should  remember tnat the  vote which  placed him  in  power was   an  independent vote, and  that  he  owes his position, not to his personal popularity or   the voting  strength  of the  Liberal party,  but to the misdeeds  of  his predecessors in office  and  a large  thinking  labor  and  Tory vote  who  consider country of more  importance   than   party.     Mr.  Brewster will  have difficulties  to contend with, not the least  of which will come from within  his   own   party.    There  are   a  large   number    of    supporters  of both  the   great   parties   in  Canada who are after the spoils  only.     The   administration   of  Sir Wilfrid Laurier proved that  the grafters were very  strong  in  the   Federal  Liberal party.  In fact, for sixteen years it was  a riot of thievery.    Previous to  1896, with the exception of 1872-  1878,  the Conservative   crooks  had their hands in tlie public  treasury,  and  previous to confederation in Upper and Lower  Canada   British    and   French  hereditary      crooks,    parsons,  priests, nunneries,  seminiaries,  hospitals,   etc.,    acquired   vast  holdings without .giving-any  thing in return for them. British Columbia in the past ten  years ha- been a paradise for  the exploiter, .lust one instance,  a Slocan bartender has 82,00(1.  acres of land registered in hi*'  name.  The majority of the electors  believed Mr. Brewster would  endeavor to give clean government or they wound hot have  voted for his supporters. There  is no doubt he will do .his best  in .this direction, but he has  f olio wors, many of them hungry,  and, liko wolves, hungry politicians hunt in packs.

MacKenzie.-'& Man, and Foley,  Welch and Stewart must find  new fields for exploitation.  The vast areas of land staked |  and held for speculation by the  "Ring"   should  be   opened   for  pre-emption    or    purchase,  to  settlers.  The cost of farming land to  actual settlerr should be not-  more than $1 'per acer in 160  acre lots, and if there is not continuous occupation and .improvements,: the land should  revert to tlie crown.  Mineral claims, held for speculation, should be sold by tender  or public auction, and the balance, after expenses of sale are  deducted, handed over to the  ������������������dog in the manger."  At least a $50 a year poll tax  should be levied, on all foreigners doing business or earning!  a wage living m the provmee  and - supporting families elsewhere. This would tend te  prevent the surplus earnings  of residents being spent brother  couutries.  Expenditures should be less  than revenues. This is as true  in regard to provincial affairs  as it is in commercial or manufacturing industries. In the  past ten years the. province  should have been out of debt  and a large surplus m the  treasury, without public improvements suffering.  Cabinet ministers should stay  at home and attend to the  duties for which they are paid,  instead of running over to England at the public expense and  todying for titles.  The" agent-general's office  should be abolished and the  provincial building in London  sold, and upwards of $100,000  annually saved to tho province.  The Civil Service Act should  be repeald and employees fired  every four years, just befere  they acquire the habit of saying-  "we" when referring to the government.
