The publisher of  the Gazette  is not in thc habit  of. boosting  or   booming,   but 'predicts that  before November 1st, 1917, there  will   be   1000 men    working   in  Hedley camp. .This estimate is  based on the copper-gold values  of the ore,   largo  bodies of ore,  easy development and shipping  facilities, and the.   men that are  becoming interested in   Hedley  camp.    There won't be a. booiii.  Real  estate   won't advance   in  price," for the simple reason that  real   estate   is .now  up   to  the  price warranted by  a  hundred  thousand dollars a   month pay- ,  roll.

This   is   especially true of a poor  man's camp.  We   know   upwards  of a dozen  men who could have  sold their  interests /or   from   $50,900   to  $250,000.    They  couldn't sell to-,  day for as many dollars as they  were    offered   thousands.     The  properties    are.   good,    but- the  owner can't develop to lhe ship-   -  ping   stage,    and    the   possible  purchaser  won't pay the pi ice.

In 1914 I began  to-feel run down, and the doctor who  was called in said that mine was a  bad case of anaemia. I lost flesh,  always, felt tired, and I got so nervous that I could scarcely hold a cup  to take a drink.

I was in bed for  lofty pride, a certain proud code of  honor which a gypsy would rather  die  than   lower.  Daughters are more useful than  sons in gypsyland, and thc parents  often put obstacles in the way of  the girls taking the man of their  choice. Thus elopements are common and easy.

The above line was  penned by a British censor upon a  letter from an officer at the front to  his wife, in which an ingenious code  was discovered. It meant to disclose  to thc anxious wife just where her  husband was fighting, but it was  spoiled by the censor and an order  issued by the war office prohibiting  such  practices.  Before the officer who wrote the  code letter left for the front he sc-  jcured two maps showing thc entire  British fighting line. The maps were  identical.

This decision  for thc ships to' "stand fast" was  necessary because in .the ordinary  course of events they would have  separated at daybreak on July 27,!  and a few hours later their' crews  would have been sc.atlcred far and  wide. At midnight on" July 26 the  Admiralty announced this precautionary step, in the following message to  thc press:  " 'Orders have been given to thc  first fleet, which is concentrated at  Portland, not to disperse for manoeuvre leave for the present. All vessels  of the second fleet arc"vrcmaining at  their home ports in proximity to their'  balance crews.'

Down the  left-hand side was another row of letters. In writing home the officer  would say: "Give my regards to L-.  A. Smith." Being a fictitious' name,  the wife would know it as a key to  her. secret code.

The  number at present on strength includes nine-qualified lieutenants who  are proceeding overseas in thc ranks  and taking their promotion in England or France.

Business is booming, there is practically no unemployment, and workers and employers alike arc reaping  a rich harvest in increased profits  and higher wages. . . . For the  month of July alone savings deposits  showed an increase of $21,765,000, as  compared with an increase in June  of $2,500,000. These arc figures that  do not lie, and they indicate a high  tide of prosperity without a parallel  in thc history of the Dominion. The  bank returns for the year ending  July 31 reveal an equally remarkable  growth' in accumulated wealth in this  country during thc second year of  war. Demand deposits showed an  actual increase for thc year of $91,-  007,973, while notice deposits were  augmented by $97,632,200. That industrial concerns have no lack of  capital is indicated by a reduction in  current' loans of $18,308,776. These  are healthy symptoms. On the  threshold of a third year_of "war Canada is amassing wealth at a rate unexampled in few, if any, of the Allied countries.  But with this increasing wealth  comes the call for thrift and the_ necessity of applying surplus savings  to higher purposes than the satisfying' of individual tastes and'cravings.  Parsimony and extravagance are  equally reprehensible in these days of  war. In the monthly letter of the  Bank of Commerce attention is directed to the warning words of the  Chancellor of the ��������� Exchequer, the  Right Hon. Reginald McKenna, who  exposes the fallacy underlying thc  argument that expenditure of money  at home, for. whatever purposes, increases prosperity:  "It is often necessary in dealing  with problems of War expenditure to  speak in terms of money, but thinking of those problems exclusively in  terms of money often leads people  very much astray. For example, I  have heard it said that the more  money that is spent 'on home products the better, becaXisc thc more  money is circulated the greater thc  prosperity. This is a profound error.  What the nation needs is goods, labor, and services for -the successful  prosecution of thc war. Everyone's  work is wanted either directly or indirectly for this purpose, whether for  supplying our fighting forces or for  making goods for export with which  to pay for necessary imports. Expenditure on non-essentials, whether  produced at home or abroad,*-diverts  capital and labor that can ill be spared to purposes which do not help us  in winning the war."  The great essential need in this  third year of the campaign is to supply the sinews of war. In this Canadians may aid materially by applying their surplus savings���������savings not  onlv from'surplus revenue, but savings effected by abstaining from  needless expenditure on non-cssen-  up thc war loan  stock. . . . There are lew in  Canada who do not yearn for some  opportunity of helping to smash the  enemy. It is not given to everyone  lo do this on the field of battle. But  by the husbanding of all our national  resources, by a rigid policy-of thrift,  Governments and people may do  much t'6 case the burden of war in  the days to come by applying available savings to investments of this  character. In this way, if in no other,  Canadians may feel thc conscious  pride that comes lo every man who  is "doing his bit" in this war.���������Toronto  Globe.  Without Honor  Among Nation*  No Peace Agreement With Germany  Worth   the  Paper it  Would  Take  Thc Army and Navy Gazette, thc  well-known service weekly, discussing peace terms,  says as follows:  "Once again   there  are  signs     that  Germany is preparing a peace propaganda and that a select body of earnest    men  has  been    engaged to go  about the country misleading thc people  and   endeavoring    to   convey  the  impression that Germany is ready to  make peace���������of a kind���������but that her  enemies,   who   refuse   lo   know  when  they are beaten, will not listen to the  terms     which   Germany     once' more  holds   out.       Thc  peace-which "Germany wants is one the terms of which  will give her all the spoils of victory,  and  the  peace  conference which the  German.'nation   is   to   be   invited, to-  visualize is  one of the old-fashioned -"  kind at which the victor, in this case  '  represented by  Germany/ sits at  thc"  head of a long table and does all the '-  talking   while   everybody' else  listens   -  obsequiously and signs whatever doc- '  uments  are put before them.

If the  conference is  held,  Germany will be-  cxcluded, the terms will be decided in  her ���������  absence    and they    will be an- ^  nounced to her for immediate acceptance.    There  can, we believe, be  no   ,  peace   which     will  be   agreed   to   by,  those     nations  which     have  suffered  most and whose voices,will therefore  carry    most weight,  which  does not  ;  include  sentence  of punishment;  and  we shall not ask Germany to sign any  paper, for we have learned by experi- '  ence  that_ neither  her  word  nor  her  bond have any value, that she is without  honor  among  nations  and    that  she makes     peace  not  because     she  chooses  but because she must."

Ex-Premier Viviani  Expects Long War  Another French Statesman Declares  France Will Bear All Sacrifices "  A difficult and prolonged struggle  before the. war is ended was prophesied by former Premier Viviani, Who  is Minister7of Justice in the present  Cabinet. In an address before the  General Council of. the Department  of Creusc, held at Gucret, he said:  '.'."Although'victory-is certain it will  require hard and prolonged efforts  to break Prussian militarism and  prevent recurrence of its crimes.  There can be no peace before thc  attainmnt of victory, before adequate reparation is made and before  justice  triumphs."  In an address before the General  Council of the Department of Aubc,  Bicnvcnu Martin, former Minister of  Justice, said:  "Thc French will not submit to  the peace of thc German Emperor,  who boasted he would force his adversaries to accept peace on bended  knees. They will accept only such  a peace as assures them legitimate  reparations, as well as their independence and security, and they will  bear patiently all sacrifices in order  thai, in conjunction with the efforts  of their faithful allies, such a peace  may be imposed."  The Prophecy Came True  A good many years ago, when th&  present Kaiser was a youth, he was  on a visit to his grandmother, Queen.  Victoria, and while walking in the  grounds of a certain Royal domain  he was boasting of the rise of the  Hohenzollerns and the future greatness of his house. Among the ladies who accompanied him was one  who had certain powers of clairvoyance, and it was noticed that after  the Prince had made his boast as  they stood on the side of ah ornamental lake, thc lady, pointing to _jt,  said: "When they cut hay from t-^:  bottom of that lake the Hohenzol-  lern dynasty comes to an end." This  year grass has grown on the bottom  of that lake and has been cut for hay.  !^-cJi  "Ji&M THE      GAZETTE,      KEDLEY,      B.

But there is a big difference between the  sweaters of the present time and those of a few  years ago. They must be chosen with a view  to harmony. That is, the color of the sweater  selected must be neutral, if one's income will  not permit of more than one.  In the middy sweater one finds a novelty.  Should the wearer feel so inclined, she could  wear the sweater minus a blouse. Jersey  cloth in an apple-green shade is the material  chosen for the garment. A white satin collar  adds a finishing touch. The sports hat is of  apple-green felt and is fashioned .after one of  the popular shapes.  Proof that jersey cloth lends itself to a  variety of styles is seen in the coat made along  the practical lines. The sports coat is heeding  fashion's prediction that coats for fall will be  longei% The broad belt, the patch pockets and  the deep sailor collar add to the dignified appearance of the coat. The sailor of terra-cotta  hatter's plush is another type of hat in favor  by sporting women,   -  Stripes are dependable things. They show  up well no matter where they are placed. On  the blue silk jersey coat blue-and-white-  striped satin is used effectively to form a deep  hem, the .cuffs and the shawl-like collar. Like  many of its sister coats this one boasts of a belt  and pockets.  Panel inserts are used effectively to break  the monotony of a solid brown silk sweater.  The panels are conspicuous because of their  contrasting color. A sash with tassel ends is  an important accessory, since it lends trimness  and allows the sweater to fit the figure without  being buttoned.  Unusual and interesting is the weave and  placing of stripes in the sweater of blue, white  and black. The girl with a limited income  would do well to invest in a sweater of this  type, because it is sure to blend in with her  other sports clothes A deep cape collar is a  noteworthy feature of this model. The hat is  one of the semi-sports models. The crown is  of black velvet, while the blue-and-white-striped brim is of felt which is soft enough to be  twisted into any desired shape.  If you are interested in sweaters watch  how they reflect the styles of dress. You are  apt to find Russian blouses, boleros and even  the Japanese collar.  ne  J&&e?

Thus writes a "Dutch statesman in  a powerful'' comment upon the indictment'that France brings against  I?

Should an Indian from" northern  Alaska go to Patagonia, he could by  means of this universal language converse with his southern brethren almost as easily as he could with his  neighbors at home. That would also  be the case if he v:sited Central America or met the tribesmen of the  Western  prairies and mountains.  When this language was invented  no one knows, but every Indian  learns it in addition to his own.

A youth of 16, states that in Octo-  [ber,   1914,  he was  forced, with  some i  50' comrades,   to   do   trench   work  in  ithc    Plain of L , in    the Pas-de-  Calais, for six days.

This universal language is, of  course, made up of signs. For example,.if an Indian is passing through  a strange country and sees other Indians at a distance, he makes the  "peace sign"; that is, he holds up his  blanket by two corners so "that it  covers his whole figure. The same  thought is exprcised by extending  the-;' hands, palms outward,-slightly  inclined from thc face.  Then there are the abstract signs,  by.which these "savages"_can express  their thoughts with regard, to the  great spirit, heaven,. good, evil, life  and death,- sickness, health, riches and  poverty.

Myriads  of Reptiles Hibernate During the Winter  Months  A loathsome, wriggling, gleaming  mass of viperous creation; the quantity of reptiles within a certain cavern of a boulder-strewn gullyside, in  Southern Manitoba, is difficult of estimation.  Within the district of Clearwater,  in Southern Manitoba, are located a  series of ravines, presumably formed  by an ancient river of importance in  prehistoric days. Deep and rugged  hill sides bound them, not a few of  which can be likened to canyons; devoid of vegetation, save a sprinkling  of .scrub oak, and a species of junir  per. The Cypress, a fair-sized  stream, meanders through the valley.  At a distance of one-half mile from  the village adjacent to thc high trestle bridge, Clearwater, exists the  cavern wherein snakedom possesses  a hibernating retreat.. A few residents of ?the -surrounding countryside  have witnessed the reptilian conglomeration; a greater number evince no  intention of undertaking the visit.  My visit to thc snakes was made  on a bright day in spring, the snows  of winter, outside of a few sheltered  nooks, having been melted beneath  the glowing sunshine of the western  prairie land.    '  Out" on the hillside, several of the  more venturesome members of the  viperous mass are noticed crawling  upon the moss-covered boulders, apparently come forth to reconnoitre.  At the cavern's entrance, a thick,  tangled "rope" of the slimy Garter  snakes was endeavoring to force itself forward into thc. balmy atmosphere outside.  A glance into the horrible excavation displayed thc presence of snake's  in countless thousands; in many curious shapes, one particular instance  was that of a vast number coiled together so as to resemble a large barrel. The sizes of the reptiles.varied.  Manitoba's snakes never 'assume thc  size of the pythonic monsters ,of thc  tropics. In no case did snakes exceed  four feet in length. The garter snake  occasionally measures a few inches  more than this and the inner recesses  of the cavern may have contained  extremely'large specimens, which at  rare intervals are seen in various portions of Manitoba.  In the earliest years of Manitoban  history this cavern in thc gullies, is  known to have existed. And observation has determined that the migratory period of the reptiles on their  way to their place of hibernation occurs in thc month of October, when  the leaves in the woodlands have  scattered in the autumn wind. Perchance many of the "colony" may  crawl long distances from their  haunts     of   slimmer  quarters,   others  But  when frost and snow depart, and  warm weather has appeared, will begin a general exodus from the cave  to the meadows and forest glades.  A' similar cavern is located iii the  valley oLthe Souris.-t Western Manitoba. Until about -1878, thirty-five  years ago, a prodigious gathering of  viperous' life annually vinvaded an excavation in the Stony Mountain locality, north of_thc city of Winnipeg.  A large quantity of quicklime was  utilized to exterminate this horrible  den, a process which could easily be  resorted to at the Clearwater ' arid  Souris Valley reptilian caverns, the  only places of such horrible characteristics within provincial limitations  today.���������J.

Expects Immigration  Wave After War  Mr. John" Aird Disctisses    National  Affairs in London, Eng.,  Publication  A certain Bishop of the Methodist  Church South was a. very eloquent  preacher. _ He told : the ��������� following  story on himself as an illustration of  the fact that, his sermons did not always have thc effect he desired.  He had had what Methodist preachers were wont to call "a good  time," preaching in one of thc smaller southern . cities, and as soon as  thc service was over many people  went, to him to express their appreciation of his sermon. One woman  in particular was most outspoken in  its praise.  "Why, Bishop," she said, "you can  never know what your sermon meant  to me. Tt was just like water to a  drowning man!"���������Youth's Companion  Dante Gabriel Rossetti once showed Whistler a sketch, and asked his  opinion   of  its  merits.  "It has good points, Rossetti,"  said Whistler; "go ahead with it, by  all  means."  Later he inquired how it was getting along.  "All right," answered Rossetti,  cheerfully. "I've ordered a stunning  frame for it."  In due time the canvas appeared at  Rossetti's house in Cheyne Walk,  beautifully framed.  "You've done nothing' to it since I  saw it, have you?" said Whistlciv  "NorO," replied Rossetti, "but I've  written a sonnet on the subject, if  you'd like to hear it." He recited  some lines of peculiar tenderness.  "Rossetti," said Whistler, as the  recitation ended, "take out thc picture and frame thc sonnet."���������Tit-  Bits.  One Source of Mexican Trouble  Nothing effective has' ever been  done for the education of the Mexican people. Such state schools as  exist are ineffective. The teachers  themselves are rarely prepared to  teach. The sons and daughters of  the educated class.do. not go into' the  teaching '.profession. The Church  has opposed the state schools, and  the Church schools have been ecclesiastical, .not human. The one chief  university of Mexico, established in  11551, once or twice suppressed, has  finally lapsed. The incompetence of  such educational institutions as have  existed in Mexico is evidenced by  thc fact that from 80 to 85 per cent,  of the population do not know how  to  read.���������Outlook,  New York.  Canada, thc London illustrated  weekly which devotes itself almost  entirely to Canadian affairs, contains  in. a recent issue an important, interview with Mr. John Aird, the general  manager of thc Canadian- Bank of  Commerce.  As to the outlook for Canada on  the conclusion of peace, Mr. Aird was  rather optimistic.  ' "I think that after the war is over  there will be a steady stream of**im-  migration from Europe, and also  from the United States," he said. "We  certainly will not welcome to our  shores those who are our enemies at  the present day, as-it will take a long  time to forget ���������'��������������������������� what has happened,  and particularly the blood arid treasure that wc Canadians have poured  out on behalf of the Empire. People  do not forget these things. There is  a feeling in Canada that there will  have to be stricter regulations with  regard to the class of individual that  is allowed to come into the country.  There will have to be a more rigid  examination in order that undesirables may be kept out.  "I think there is a strong and  growing feeling in Canada that it is  desirable that thc Dominion should  be extended so as to take in Newfoundland, the West Indies and  British South America," continued  the banker. "There is no doubt that  Australia and South Africa are going  to hold on to the adjacent territories  we have captured. Australia is not  going to allow the captured Oceanic  islands tb be handed back to Germany, .nor is South Africa to allow  any portion in the southern part of  that continent to be given to the Germans or anybody else. We are^fight-  ing to win this war, and'it would be  a dangerous policy even to think of  handing 'back these possessions to  Germany. ' Such a thing would undoubtedly weaken the loyalty of the  people of the overseas portion of the  Empire. We are not fighting because  we love to fight; we are fighting to  keep the Eriipire and consolidate it.  "You remind me that although a  very large amount of Canadian gilt-  edged securities and railway and industrial bonds are held in this country, there, is a large number' of more  speculative investors who have put  their money into land' and building  lots, and '-you ask what likelihood  there is of prices returning to - the  b.oom figures of 1912-13,'.' said Mr.  Aird. "Well, we do not wish to sec  them return to those prices. We  would rather see a gradual improvement, and I think that has already  commenced in actual city property���������  not in' thc outskirts���������in places like  Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg,-Vancouver and Victoria. Farm lands in  the West, particularly those that are  adjacent to railway lines, have held  their value very well, and will continue to do so 'provided proper farming principles are adhered to, .because  such land has been bought at a very  low rate, and at the existing.price it  is well worth the money that was  paid,for it.  ''The real .estate situation, of  course, will be helped very much by  immigration. Notwithstanding the  war, wc are getting quite a few people in thc West from the United  States.. As I have already suggested,  these arc from a farming point of  view the best class of immigrants we  receive, from their knowledge of  western climatic and farming condi  tions, and their possession of. a cer  tain amount of money."  Attitude of United States  To Cause of Allies  The  Hon.  J.  M.  Beck  Sees  Future  Britain and    America    One in  Interests and Sympathy  Thc     Hon.     James     Montgomery  Beck, a leading American lawyer and  former     assistant     attorney-general,  whose  book  on   the   war has   had   a  wide  popularity,     speaking    at  Glas-  Igow,- Scotland,     recently,  referred  to  the friendly attitude taken by the majority  of  the  people     of  the  United  States  towards   the  cause  of   the  allies    in  thc  war.      British-American  fraternity, which  before the.war was  simply the sympathetic touch of kinsmen, with  common  ideals-  arid  common   conceptions   of   liberty  and  humanity, had, he said, now grown into  a corporation .which   had become     a  most vital fact for the future welfare  of humanity.    So  far  as  there  could  be a  reasonable    and   favorable  prophecy that the time would come when  justice would be vindicated throughout the world, this would be brought  about by the- co-operation and  community  of  ideas   of   these  two   great  commonwealths,    the. great    empire  and  the  great   republic.    The  action  of  Great  Britain   in  unsheathing her  sword  for Belgium and her declaration that she would not suffer thc democracy of France to perish beneath  the iron heel of  Prussian despotism,  had done    more than    anything else  could    possibly  have     done  to   commend her_ to the sympathetic and enduring  friendship   of  the  great  mass  of the American people. There never  was a time when America, throwing  aside the prepossessions of its youth,  was so open to a sympathetic understanding, which would one day ripen  into   an   entente   cordiale,   as   at   the  present moment.      It was felt, however,    that    Great    Britain   had    not  wholly understood the attitude of the  American people, nor what they had  tried    to  do  to   help     Great  Britain.  When thc war began there was a keen  desire   to  know   what   would  be' the  verdict    of the    United    States,    the  greatest  nation   outside  the .arena of  thc  conflict.       That  verdict  was  instantaneous,    spontaneous    and overwhelming.    This great  impartial jury  of 'American citizens, excluding those  of Teutonic origin, with  an amazing  approach lo unanimity,  declared that  Britain,    France    and    Russia    were  fighting for thc basic rights of civilization,    and    that their'   sympathies  were with them. Why, then.jjt might  be asked,  did  this  verdict  not     find  greater  concrete     recognition  in   the  attitude of the    government?    While  not able to speak on this point with  the frankness desired, Mr. Beck said  that    they    exaggerated  thc importance  of  political   government  in   the  affairs of men.-  While thc American people"had had  no opportunity of giving a formal  pronouncement, they had rendered  not only a disinterested and dispassionate judgment, in favor of the allies, but had also " worked for thc  allies, ' within the -limits of official  "neutrality, .since the outbreak' of hostilities. Thc point he wished to  make was that there was a government far greater than thc political  government, Every people in themselves formed a- spiritual unity which  had its own activities, functions and  methods of expression, and just as  the American people, quite independent of any organic, political government, had a collective force which  had expressed itself in this crisis, so,  rising above the British Empire and  the American Republic, there was an  empire of the English-speaking race.  This was no visionary conception,  but a vital fact. Had the great American commonwealth across the sea  been' loyal to this great English-  speaking empire? He bcliev.ed it had.  But they had been very much embarrassed in the outward and concrete' expression of that loyalty.

The security on crop being so poor, we would not consider  furnishing seed, as the only security  that we could get would be on this  year's crop, anu if there is a failure,  the parties, not being responsible,  our security would be wiped out entirely. It seems to me that this class  of missionary work has to be done  by thc Government, as it is the only  party in shape to protect itself against any emergency, and thc raising  of 'crops is of general value to thc  entire country as well as thc individual receiving assistance."

Thc American republic, Mr. Beck  said, had made more 'than one sacrifice to Britain in this crisis,' while  only a very few had profited by suppling munitions. No doubt they had  all. profitted indirectly by the prosperity which this traffic had caused.  But there was another side to the  question. Did they suppose the American people did not know that by  their action they had incurred the  enmity of what was until very recently the first military power of the  world?' Americans knew when they  sold thc munitions that if Germany  won thc war or even if the war ended in a draw they would be the next  to be attacked. Mr. Beck- concluded  with a warning that the"-two great  divisions of the English-speaking  race should not misunderstand each  other, because the next 25 years were  sure to be portentious years for civilization. Thc great Empire and the  great Republic would, he believed,  become indissoluble, united in their  interests, purposes and sympathy.

To Prof. Boley,  of the North Dakota Agricultural  College, .'must be given the credit'of  producing after years of study a  wheat  which   is   rust  resistant.  Along in ��������� 1903 Prof. Boley personally selected individual plants from  the Russian wlical fields south of  Kazan and on these he has been  working for thirteen years. The  wheat has been a success, but owing  to certain defects in its milling qualities it has not been regarded with  favor until the present year. In face'  of the enormous damage done in the  Dakotas and Minnesota this year it  is thc sensation of the hour, and the  districts which have had the courage  to grow- this variety are in a position to provide many others with  seed of a quality which would have  been unattainable if they had not had  that courage.

Confiscating Contraband  Adoption  of Compulsory  Service by  Great Britain Worries German  Press  One'of the features of the lengthy  reviews of thc second year of the  world war published in the German  newspapers of thc last Sunday of  July is thc serious comment upon  the adoption of compulsory military  service in England. The Cologne  Gazette, as quoted by the London  Times,' said in its review:  "Among thc surprises of this war  is the fact-that it has brought England'to the introduction of universal  military service���������thc ��������� greatest internal revolution in England's modern  history. Even those who knew England'-well, citing to the last to the  belief that it would not be -possible  to force upon thc English people this  institution so antagonistic to' its fundamental convictions. A last judgment will appreciate the full extent  of this sacrifice, and measure"thereby  the seriousness of England's intention to make Germany harmless for  English purposes. Nothing more  plainly shows the (immense, seriousness of the united will to destroy lis  than this conversion of the English  people to  universal  service."  The Gazette goes on to say that  thc adoption of compulsion has nevertheless "been in vain." The Frankfurter Zcitung also emphasizes thc  importance of compulsion in England, although il says that "hundreds  of thousands arc surely tolerating it  only with  gnashing of teeth."  Thc Frankfurter / Zcitung, in its  leading article, declares that it is not  Germany that bears "th'c terrible guilt  of every fresh day on which thousands die." Germany can only "hold  out until thc hourr at which the  strength cf her- enemies is devoured  in their own lire, and until, the day  when reason finally masters arrogance." - The journal says that Germany's victory will consist in self-  maintenance."

Mortgages in the West  Lenders and Borrowers Confer, And  Better. Understanding on Both  Sides Likely to Result  For a number of years, says The  Grain Growers' Guide, there has been  a good deal of criticism on the part  of thc farmers in the West against  mortgage Companies:- Four-fifths of  the farms in, the Prairie Provinces  arc mortgaged, and it is, therefore a  question of vital interest to the farming community. .The prevailing average rate of interest in Manitoba on  farm mortgages is seven per cent.,  and in Saskatchewan ' and Alberta  eight per pent., and there are mortgages carrying nine per cent., ��������� with  some higher, rates in outlying dis- ,1  tricts. ,_,--*.'  'jl  ��������� -The expense of foreclosure is also j 1  complained of. Thc expenses .in Al- . i'  berta for foreclosures / on., farms arc |  almost double those of the other two ,,|  provinces, running as high as~$400 to  foreclose" a .$1,000 - mortgage ,, ;on a  quarter section. ' The delays are also , |  very serious in that province. Legis--  lalion makes foreclosure proceedings  very slow, very tedious and very' J  costly, and all the cost must come -  out of the farmer if-he has any-equity  left  in  his   property.  Very frequently, too, land' under  mortgage is abandoned and grows  up to weeds. .Noxious weeds inspectors destroy the weeds, and frequently put a very heavy charge ori  thc land. At times it has run as high J  as $600 against.a half section. This j  is madc a prior, charge to the first  mortgage, and in a number of cases  where foreclosure proceedings have  taken place it has been found after  paying off the weed charges, seed  grain liens, destruction of gopher  charges and other charges,- the mortgage companies might sustain a loss  of  several   hundred  dollars.  A conference was recently held  between representatives of mortgage  companies and. representative western farmers with a view to bringing  about a better understanding. It was  soon found that a common meeting  ground existed, and both parties  agreed in recommending that all existing legislation giving priority over  first mortgages to claims othcr than  legitimate, taxes should be repealed,  and that no future legislation of_ that  nature should be enacted. This, it  was pointed out, would tend.to improve the security given under a  mortgage and so reduce the rate of  interest. It was also pointed out'by  thc representatives of the lenders that  there is very generally a feeling in  rural communities of the West against the absentee land owners, par-  ticularly if held by a mortgage com- , y  pany, and that the levying of e"xces- y  sive charges against such also .tends "'  to reduce' thc security of lenders, and  in this way again interest rates are  necessarily increased.  The conference should make for a  better understanding between lenders  and borrowers.  i hater of war as he was, hc knew that  tlie only way to end thc war which newspapers are not what liicy seem  would justify thc nation for having The neatly rolled ends arc kut|T,Vork  waged it was by dictating terms, and cleverly made plugs of paper and '  not by negotiations.

Germans Fought to Death  In the Horror There Was an Occasional Gleam of Humor  Philip Gibbs, in a story, sent: from  headquarters in France of the fighting  arpuiid.Thicpval,  says:  Many Germans defended themselves to the death. A sentry outside one of the dugouts saw the British approaching, and turning quickly  he shouted down the word "England"  to his comrades' below. One of the  Warwicks" closest to him hurled his"  last bomb at him and then, - seizing  the man's rifle, sprang on to the parapet ready to shoot the Germans as  they came up. They came up in a  swarm with bombs, and there was. a  great conflict, which ended only when  the last "German   was dead.  In one dugout there was, in the  midst of all this horror, a comic episode. A curtain divided the dugouts.. A "Warwickshire man thrust  his bayonet "beneath the curtain,-  when suddenly the curtain was drawn .  to one side, and a German soldier,  yawning and rubbing his eyes .with  his knuckles, stood there as though to.  say "What's up?"

With Canada it is a simple matter  of fighting from a sense of responsibility to the British Empire. Canada  has not shirked that responsibility.  She is not fighting .because she loves  war and enjoys the daily perusal of  casualty lists. Her griefs are such  that a people less staunch and loyal  would be crushed under their weight.

STRENGTH AND BEAUTY  Increasing Storage Capacity  More Elevators Are Being Built to  Handle the Western Crops  The Grain Growers' Grain Co,, a  farmers' organization wdiose activities extend over the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba,  has let the contract for thc erection  of a new storage elevator at Fort  William, with a 300,000 bushel capacity.- Fort William- already has 19  elevators, with a total storage capacity of 26,940,000 bushels, of which  two elevators already belong "to or  are leased by/ the Grain Growers'  Grain  Company.  __ The Saskatchewan' Co-operative  Elevator Company, another farmers'  organization, intends building this  year as many as possible of the 30  new elevators which it has had in  contemplation for some time past,  one of which is a terminal elevator  of 2,500,000 bushels capacity, and for  which it expects to have sufficient  liquid capital lo pay out of its own  funds _ without borrowing. Three  large interior terminal elevators were  completed by thc Canadian Government last summer, at Calgary, Saskatoon and Moose Jaw, with a capacity of 2,500,000 bushels in thc first  case and 3,500,000 bushels each in  the other two. A certain amount of  last year's crop was handled 'at. these  three points. This year, however,  will see that amount greatly augmented.  A new feature will mark the handling of the 1916 Western Canadian  grain crop. Anticipating the westward movement of grain   to the Pa  Constipation  Is Growing Smaller Every Day.

Fierce fights for  forests arc of frequent occurrence,  as such positions arc a decided advantage to the army having possession of them. They offer a serious  obstacle to the advance of the enemy, for troops cannot march, neither can artillery be rapidly transported through dense woods. What roads  are available can also be simply  blocked by a few fallen trees. The  latter tactics are especially effective  for  covering  up  retreats.  Many batteries arc now secreted  in woods, away from the prying eyes  of aerial scouts. The guns arc placed in clearings and Ihcy send out  shells in an upward direction, through  holes in the foliage above. An army  possessing, a wood is, in fact, in as  hapny a position as if Ihcy were  safely ensconced in a steel fort. They  canccntrale a destructive fire on an  approaching enemy, and, being practically invisible, Ihey are safe from a  serious counter-attack. The only effective way of dislodging an army  from a wood is lo fire it, and burn the  soldiers out. This is seldom done,  however, as a hostile army covets  the wood for its own purposes, and  is not likely lo destroy these fortifications   of  nature.  In the present war forests are  proving" invaluable as a means of  concealing troops from air scouts.  Infantry, cavalry and artillery can be  secreted in their thousands in forests, and if the trees cover a long  stretch of country the troops can advance to points of vantage safe from  immediate attack or ^discovery by  iand or air scouts. Trees arc also  useful in providing wood for fuel and  construction purposes. Modern armies carry with them motor workshops where rough wood can be sawn  and cut into planks, and huts can  thus be constructed and wood for  aeroplanes   provided.  There Are Large Numbers of Them  Who Escaped Service in Their  Own Country  A middle way has been found toward solution of the problem of what  to do with many thousands"of Russian and Polish Jews who are living  in Britain, having escaped military service in the Czar's army, and  not coming under the British conscription laws. In London, Manchester, Liverpool and othcr big cities,  whole colonies of these exist, a large  proportion of them of military age,  who naturally came to be regarded  with no favorable eye by their English neighbors, whose men were engaged in war work.  After some agitation, the government proposed to enact a law whereby Russian Jews of military age  would be forced to enlist in the British army under thc threat of being  sent back lo Russia, where _ they  would be liable to heavy penalties as  defaulters from military service. This  project aroused a storm of disapproval, though ably defended by Sir  Herbert Samuel.  Sir Herbert, while not withdrawing  the original proposals, has now hit  on a compromise. Reason and persuasion arc to be substituted for force  and threatening. A responsible committee of leading Russian Jews,    Sir  Civil Servants Will Have to Stick to  Regular Employment  It is understood that the minister  of finance is about to issue an order  which will put. a stop to the practice  common-.among -civil -servants "of" doling.-little side-jobs during their "spare  time in order to earn extra, money.  The-reason for this step,, it is pointed, .out, is- because rat this particular  time, when the government- is employing large numbers - of extra-  clerks, the-civil servants should'concentrate their minds entirely on the  work which the government is paying   them to do.  As a result of the growing shortage  of labor of every kind, the regulations governing the maximum age  of candidates for, admission to the  civil service have bcen dropped. An  order-in-council has been passed to  the effect that during the continuance of the war a candidate for examination and appointment to thc  civil 'service will not be ineligible  by reason of the fact that his age is  greater than 35 years.  The Cause of Appendicitis  Now Definitely Known  The commonest cause of appendicitis is constication. Every doctor  says so. When you require physic,  don't .use a cheap drastic pill���������get  Dr. Hamilton's Pills, which are made  from the private formula of ore of  thc greatest physicians. Dr. Hamilton'-! Pills strengthen the stomach,  regulate the bowels and prevent any  tendency to appendicitis. In one day  you feel the tremendous benefit of Dr.  Hamilton's Pills. By purifying the  blood and cleansing the system they  prevent headaches, lift depression and  Panama Canal, the Dominion Gov  ernment has erected a large elevator  al Vancouver, B.C., through which it  is not idlelo suppose a proportion of  the grain shipments destined for Europe will this year pass. This new  elevator has just been taken off the  contractors' hands by thc Dominion  Grain Commission.  At the end of April, 1915, the total  elevator capacity of Western Canada,  according to the joint tariff published bv the Canadian railways, was  148,435,000 bushels. With the additions made that are referred to above  and o I hers that have not been ^announced, it is" safe 'to assume that  this -year the elevators . of .Western  Canada l;>'will be capable of storing  155,000,000 bushels."

Canadian   automobile   associations   might  well take this lesson from thc United  States,  as  accidents     of    a     similar  nature    in this    country    are by    no  means   rare.

" He who does me once, shame on him;  He who does me twice, shame on me."  There are so many patriotic  societies organized, or being  organized, that it will soon be  necessary for the fedeial government to appoint a staff of  inspectors to investigate the  working's of these societies Sir  Herbert Ames, in one of his  western speeches, used tbe argument against direct taxation  for patriotic purposes, that it  would bo unfair to tax those  who are now fighting after they  return. But that is just what  the government is now doing,  and must continue to do. The  loans for the war run for periods  of twenty years and upwards.  JSTot only the returned soldiers  will be taxed, but their children, their graiid clnldren and  their great grand children, will  have to bear their share of the  expense of this great war.
