Peck Came Back.  J. Peck MacSwain has fully  recovered and is contributing  a breezy column weekly to the  Republic Journal. Some of his  paragraphs scintilate. Here are  a few of them:  The" wind at Colville last  week scabbed on the apple  pickers.  Over in Grand Forks last  Saturday a cafeteria supper was  held in a feed store. The next  one will probably be held in a  livery stable.  The climate of California and  the great family of Smiths are  hard to beat. Last Sunday,  near Los Angeles, a Mrs. Smith,  aged 39, became a great grandmother.  They have fine land in the  Palouse country. Last week  near Oaksdale a farmer plowed,  up $1000 in gold coin.  Prohibition has hit the Salvation Army hard in Seattle.  Without drunks and misery the  Army finds little to do.  One day last week the Journal devil observed two white  shoes drying on a window sill,  a girl hanging out of the window to dry her hair, and ventured a bet of ten cents that  the girl wasn't going to eat raw  onions for supper.  Peck should have been more  explicit as to whether the girl  was hanging head or feet np.  Her method of hanging out to  dry might mean much to the  tourist traffic of Republic.  The gold output of the Yukon will this year be about the  same as that of last year, which  amounted/to $4,376,393, About  250 miles from Dawson, in the  Mayo Creek district, a silver  claim is being developed, from  which 17o9 tons of ore have  been shipped by water to San  Francisco, a distance of 4,600  miles. The returns, even after  shipping the ore such a great  distance, are expected by the  owners to warrant the extensive development work now  now being carried on'.���������-Lady-  smith Chronicle.  Time flies although  it has no  aviator's license  TW. J. Twiss, the well-known  Vancouver life insurance man,  was a visitor in town Saturday,  going to Penticton Sunday.  Mrs. Herbert Fraser who had  been the guest of her sister,  Mrs. F. H. French, returned to  her home in Penticton Sunday  last.  /Dave Henderson left Tuesday evening for Vancouver,  having received a telegram that  Mrs. Henderson was very low  with pneumonia.  There was a stampede in  Princeton Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. It did not  draw much of a crowd from  points along the valley,  F, Kirkpatrick, government  engineer, Penticton, was in  town last week in company  with Road Superintendent  Turner and L. B. West.  C. W. and Mrs. Graham and  family, who were the guests of  Mrs. John Jackson for the past  month, left Tuesday for their  home at Northport, Wash.  Monday last Riley Anderson,  while coupling cars on the  N. P. tramway, was caught between the cars and .had the left  collar bone and one rib broken.  I wish to thank the members  of L. O. L. No. 1744, also the  members of L. O. B. A. No. 184,  and friends of Hedley for their  kind sympathy in the loss of my  dear brother;���������Mrs. Robertson  and family.  It is a dull hour in Hedley  that there isn't a dog fight, and  Toby is in all of them, Toby  weighs nearly four pounds, but  he can stage more scraps than  any bull terrier in Canada.  Tobias is some dog with a right  smart of nerve.  Mrs./Bromley and R. J. and  Mrs. Edmond visited Vernon  last week and saw the review  of the troops there. They say  that the 172nd are a splendid  looking body of men, and should  make things interesting for the  enemy when they get to the  fighting line. /  The Hedley boys haye bee.n.  doing   splendid   work   a.v   %b>9  front. Corporal Knowles was  the first man in bis battalion to  capture a German and bring  him into the British lines. It  is reported that Bobby Robertson has been recommended for  the B.C. M.  This week J. Beale finished  painting A.MeGibbon's house on  Webster street, occupied by, Dr.  Elliot. If a number of other  buildings in town were painted  it would add greatly to the  general appearance of the place  and give it a more go-ahead appearance.  The Hedley Patriotic Funds  committee announce that they  have completed arrangements  for an entertainment to be  given by the Royal Gwent Male  Singers an Thursday, November  16th. This entertainment promises well to be the event of the  season, and for all lovers of  good music there is a treat in  store. -  Monday ..was payday at the  the mine and mill, "and about  $15,000 was  paid in wages, exclusive of board  at the  mine.  About   half  of the   payroll   is  distributed at the mill,   offices,  water, power and   light plants,  etc.   It' is a fairly large payroll  in a town with the population  of Hedley., and of course, that  is the principal source' of busi-  revenue for the town.  never had time to write to.you.*, ;  I will never forget some of the*  old days when wc used to work .,  together.

Deab Friend Dick-; Just a  few lines  hoping  this will find  you and your wife and  family  in the best of health, as it leaves  me, only I have quite a little  pain  in my  left thigh.    I was  wounded on the 9th September  at the Somme. They came near  putting my lights out this time.  This is the  third  time  I have  been wounded but not as  bad  as this.    1 got it in both arms,  in  my  right  foot,   and   a   big  chunk blown off my left thigh,  but   my   arms   and   foot   are  pretty   near" well   again.     My  ���������������������������left leg  will  take a long time  as it is a big  wound  and I had  to drag myself about two hundred   yards   before I  could get  any help.    The doctor told me  yesterday that I would be lucky  if I got out  of bed   in   three  months.  That is the worst part  of it being in - bed so  long, but  we are well  looked after here.  We have the very  best  of doctors and nurses and   the people  can't do  enough  for   us.    We  have a concert here every week,  and  there are always  visitors  coming to see us and  bringing  us all kinds of stuff. Well, Dick,  I hear there  was another air  raid around here last night.    I  heard the  guns  but it seemed  quite  a distance away; I  also  heard  the  people cheering   to  beat the band about 1   o'clock  this morning, so I asked  what  ib was.all about and   they told  me that we had brought down  a zeppt   J Hope it is right  That  is about all the Germans can do  is kill women and children, and  I have seen it.  The towns in Belgium and  France behind the firing line  are nothing but ruins. A man  can hardly believe it, and as for  the churches���������there is not a  church within range of their  guns but is destroyed, and fine  churches at that. I have been  in some of the handsomest  churches I ever saw. They are  great church people.  Well,. Dick, .

The samples for general distribution will consist of spring  wheat, white oats, barley and  field pea?, about 5 pounds of  each, and three pounds of potatoes. The grain will.be sent  out from Ottawa, and the potatoes from the several experimental farms. All samples will  be sent free by mail. Only one  sample of grain and one of potatoes will be sent to aach farm.  As the supply of seed is limited  farmers are advised to apply  early.

EXCELSIOR  INSURANCE  COMPANY  AN EXCLUSIVEL Y CANADIAN COMPANY  ESTABLISHED 1890  Excelsior Policies Are  Money Makers  Wet and Dry Periods  Come Alternately  And Have Been Doing So For Three  ��������� Thousand Years  Among the more notable investigations of the climate of past ..centuries are those by Professor Huntington, and his conclusions arc based on  historical rccdrds in Europe, archaeological investigation in Central  America, and on the tree growth as  indicated by the rings of old trees,  especially the Sequoia of California.  The curves showing probable rainfall, which he has obtained from  these various sources, show a fairly  satisfactory agreement through the  past 3,000 years, and indicate that the  weather conditions throughout this  long span of human history have been  pulsatory in character, periods of  wet years alternating irregularly with  periods  of  relatively  dry  years.  In the past 100 years there have  bccir-cxceptionally wet seasons and  exceptionally dry seasons, also exceptionally cool summers, and exceptionally warm summers. Early in  the 19th century there were scveril  exceedingly cool years in Eastern  Canada and the United Slates, notably 1812, 1815 aud 1816, and 1812 and  1816 were known as years without a  summer.  While the rainfall from April 1st  to late in June was in excess of the  rainfall of the'corresponding period  in any year since -records have been  kept in Toronto", there arc three May-  July periods and five July-August periods when the rainfall was considerably greater than it was in April,  May and June.  The excessive rain was only in Ontario and western Quebec. In eastern Quebec and the Maritime Provinces the fall was about an average,  while in Newfoundland the rainfall  was comparatively light, and for two  months the weather was exceptionally fine and bright. ��������� Sir Robert J'.  Stupart, director ol" meteorological  service'for Canada, in The Agricultural Gazette.  Valuable Addition To  Canada's Wealth  Stefannson  Makes    Valuable   Copper  Discoveries in the Arctic  Region  The discovery ������ by the Canadian  Arctic expedition headed by Vilhjal-  niiir Stefansson of a great field of  nalivc_coppcr in the vicinity of Copper Mine River, in the neighborhood  of Prince Albert Island, will prove  of great value to the business world,  says Dr. Chester A. Reeds of the  American Museum of Natural History. Dr. Reeds believed also that it  will afford scientists an opportunity  for displaying their ingenuity in finding an outlet from a region that is  still unopened in a commercial sense.  The work of the parly is expected  to prove valuable in determining the  direction of winds and the movement  of tides in the Polar region. Dr.  Reeds said this work might go a long  way to prove or disprove the theory  that an unknown continent exists in  the great unexplored region north of  Alaska and west and northwest of  Greenland.  In The Good Old Times  Realize How Well Off You Are In  These Later Days  Don't let history lead you astray.  The chronicles of past ages were set  down by contemporary scribes, who  exaggerated the grandeur and opulence  of their days.  The renaissance with all its assumptions and pomp, was in many  ways a very sorry spectacle.  Squalor, filth and discomfort demeaned the mightiest castle. Rats,  vermin, swarms of flics, mosquitoes  and worse flourished in the fetid  rooms and carried unspeakable infections.  Puddles of sewage lay before aristocratic doorways. Sidewalks were  ankle   deep   with   slime  and  garbage  Warfare and Insanity   .  Few Are Crazed By the Battles,-Ac-  ���������' cording' to Statistics ,  In the early days of the war doleful predictions were heard that modern civilization with its debilitating  horrors of modern death dealing devices would drive thousands of soldiers mad. Men taken from peaceful  pursuits, whose chief hazard had been  in crossing the streets, were suddenly set down in an inferno of explosives, beset with the constant imminence of death in terrible forms, deprived of countless comforts and conveniences, racked in mind night and  day for i months, and there seemed  every probability that thousands indeed would break under the unfamiliar and seemingly intolerable strain.  But the records do not show it.    Sta  It Stops the Twinges of Rheumatism,.  Limbers the Muscles, Eases the Joints  Streets   were   unlightcd and perilous, tislics thus far prove that these fears  No surgical operation is nccessaiy  in removing corns if Hollow-ay's  Corn   Cure  be  used.  Whom the Germans Fear.  We  already    know  how    the .Germans  have    feared  the  Highlanders.  - They have  better  reason   for fearing  " them  today    than    ever    they    had.  There   has   been   nothing   finer   done  in'this war or,'I believe, in any war,  than ,thc    way  in  which     Scotsmen,  after    four    days    of      unimaginable  strain, held and flung back the enormously    preponderating    numbers  of  the  desperate  last  German     counter  BABY'S GREAT DANGER  DURING HOT WEATHER  Afore little ones die during the hot  weather than at any other lime of  the year. Diarrhoea, dysentery, cholera infantum and stomach troubles  come without warning, and when a  medicine is not at hand to give  promptly the short delay too frequently means that the child has passed beyond aid. Baby's Own Tablets  should always be kept in homes  where there arc young children. An  occasional dose of the Tablets will  prevent stomach and bowel troubles,  or if the trouble comes suddenly the  prompt use of the Tablets will" cure  tlie baby. The Tablets arc sold by  medicinc dealers or by mail .at 25  cents a box from The Dr. WtfthTms'  Medicine   Co.,   Brockvillc,  Out.  When Will Peace Come?  When will .peace come? Il will  come when Germany is ready for it,  and the time is approaching. It will  come when Germany has learnt the  lesson of the war, when it has found,  as every other nation has had to  learn, that the voice of Europe cannot be defied with impunity. It will  come when Germany is ready to repudiate the persons and the principles that made the war inevitable,  when the militarists and the Chauvinists have became a despised and repudiated remnant, when the nation  says:  "To  you  we  listened,  and-you  except  to  armed  companies  Leonardo da Vinci could: neither  cool nor heat his home. There wasn't a chimneyed lamp in the house,  nor a spigot, nor a toilet, nor a stove.  When he made a journey, he rode  for days on horseback or jolted over  the ruts in a sumptuous but spring-  less coach.  Even the cultured classes were'indescribably vulgar in their habits. A  farm-hand would resent the table  manners of mediaeval exquisites..  The rapturously beautiful women  eternalized by , tradition, " generally  disclosed rows of decayed and snag-  gled teeth when they, smiled upon  their admirers and fished for choice  gobbets with unmanicurcd fingers  among golden 'dishes in which nobles  served their food.  Dentistry 'had, not been invented.  Surgery boasted few resources beyond blood-letting and.leeching. Doctors were arrant quacks, unable to  cope with the fevers and epidemics  which constantly devastated the  population.  Property was at the mercy of the  greedy lords and exposed to thieving  bands, against whom honest citizens  could   evoke   no  redress.  Assassination was an organized  trade. Professional bravos frankly  advertised their services and at a  price impersonally stabbed or poisoned any individual whose enemy  engaged   their, offices.  J-Iow would you like to trade your  lot for theirs?  Arc you still dissatisfied with your  circumstances? Do you dare arraign Fortune, after the above contrast for the case and comfort,, the  facilities and conveniences, the' liberty and protection that you enjoy in  this enlightened country and century?  Looks better now, doesn't it���������that  neat little flat of yours, with its running water , and sanitary plumbing,  steam heat, ice, telephone', clcvator,-  electric lights, gas range,'a trolley  out fronl, a fire department around  the corner, health officers watching  over your children, a policemen within call, surgeons and physicians five  minutes away, and every privilege  open to anybody in the land?  Fifteen dollar clerks are far better  off in 1916 than .prime" ministers' used  to be in 1619. Their pay envelopes  are  magic power.    All  the  money  in  were tremendously.exaggcrated  Dr. G. Dumac, who has treated all  cases of mental trouble in one of tlie  French armies, says his data, covering the first six months of last year,  agrees with the reports of German  doctors regarding madness among  combatants. He finds the cases of  insanity caused directly or indirectly  by the war in France arc quite as few  in proportion as those reported'in  Germany, and offers the figures as refutation'of the theory of German specialists that the Teutonic race has  greater nervous resistance than the  French or Latin. The same conclusion is indicated by the British reports. It is doubted whether - any  appreciable number of soldiers who  have broken down mentally would  not have done so anyhow, even if  there had been no war. Most of the  cases suggested previous .weaknesses.  ���������From" the Pittsburg Dispatch.

The   Original   of  Squecrs   Died  of  a  .Broken Heart  The grossest injury which Dickens  ever inflicted on a fellow being was  his too accurate portrait of an innocent man in his Squeers. Thai Yorkshire schoolmasters were, as a rule,  cruel and wicked enough il is true,  but the particular schoolmaster who  was recognized and who recognized  himself as the original Squecrs seems  to have been an exception to the rule.  Il will be remembered that Dickens  and his illustrator travelled togethcr  to the north of England for the purpose of collecting material for "Nick-  leby" and especially for the Dothc-  boys episode. Al. C-rela-Bridgc they  visited a boarding school known as  Bowes academy.

Talking and Listening  We Grow Wise, Not By Talking,  -But By What We Hear  Some people talk so much that  they never have time lo learn anything. We grow wise not by what  we say, but by what we hear, and  yet there are not a few men who  have learned to talk but have not  learned -to listen. Wisdom, increas-  andjing and widening, is impossible to  such men. Their own conversation  shuts them out of all the benefits  which might conic to them from listening lo the speech of other men,  and, they pay the penalty of their  own loquacity in narrowed lin^ils of  thought and narrower limits of sympathy.  It is-easy for a good talker to lalk  loo much, and it is very hard to get  him lo realize that he does talk too  much. Usually the man who can  lalk freely likes to talk, and in the  enjoyment of his own eloquence he  completely forgets that other people  also desire once in a while lo say  a little. The talker- may not mean  to be selfish, but he is so whether  he means it or not, and he is apt to  find himself becoming increasing^  unpopular. One of the subtlest compliments you can pay a man or woman is lo be a good listener, ?.nd this  the talker finds it hard  lo be.

The venture owes  its origin to the fact that two of the  directors of a well-known controlled  establishment have been so impressed by the work done by educated women'that they arc prepared to sink  $200,000 in a concern, which will be  worked entirely by such women.

Wants What He Wants  A clubman of London says: When  the Prince of Wales is going to do a  thing he simply will not be put off.  I was at the box office of a West End  (theatre one evening, when he and two  brother officers came along, and His  Royal Highness asked for three  stalls. He was not recognized, and  was told every stall was engaged.  "Front row of dress circle?" inquired the Prince. No, nothing was  available, cither. "Then can.I have  scats anywhere^" demanded thc  Prince. It was found there were  three available somewhere in- the  back of the house at four--shillings  each, and these the heir to the throne  purchased and  appeared glad to  get.  thc wind. How can he hope-to fis  cape the, whirlwind? He has been  deaf to the cry of the oppressed Belgians and Poles and Serbs. How  can he expect pity who has shown  none? The war"upon which he entered so lightly, convinced of the invincibility of the German military  machine and of thc industrial organization behind it, is no longer conducted as he wills. The Allies have  patiently labored for two years to  create a mightier war machine than  that of Germany. They have succeeded. They now have more men,  more guns, and more , ammunition  than the Germans, and their will to  win is not less strong. Thc war has  become a test of industrial strength,  and the factories of the Allied nations arc pioving themselves capable  of turning out a far greater number  of death-dealing missiles in a given  time than those of Germany.  Thc Kaiser, seeing inevitable defeat where,, until recently, he saw-  nothing but overwhelming victory,  begins lo make excuses, to declare  that Germany is the victim of a British plot and is--fighting'not lo conquer her neighbors' territory, but to  guard herscll against invasion and  dismemberment. Thc lie is unconvincing. Thc bold avowal of .Maximilian Harden, "we willed the war,"  better represents Germania's spirit.  Thc German War Lord went forth  lo conquer with Woild Power or  Downfall emblazoned on his banner.  Ha\ing failed to achieve world  power, docs thc Kaiser belie\e that  by whining and lying he can escape  down-fall?���������Toronto  Globe.  To Expose a Dead7Beat Will-Do Him  '        More Good Than Harm  There    are    dead-beats,    but    who"  made   them?    Nature  in   some  cases*  and thc   business   methods   of   business men in others.    When a man is,  found out to be wilfully dishonest by  a business man, every; other business  man    in  the .community    should-be  made  cognizant     of the  fact.    ,-If a  business man gets "stung" by. a dead-  beat, he shouldn't'be ashamed to tell  it/so as to save others, from,getting''  in   the   same   box.    To   lose sa  dead-7  beat from a list of customers is not  a  severe loss,  and the. business man  who  warns  others  of the dangers  is  a public  benefactor to   others  of his  kind.    To  expose a' dead-beat in the  start,     to  nip     his  dishonesty in thev-  b'ud,  will    do   him  more    good than  harm.    It might force him'to be honest when he was on the verge of be--_  coming dishonest, .and'a man,who-is",  honest     even   by  pressure ,-'is   better .  than a dishonest man.

Strength of Birds  Birds can cat and digest from ten  to thirty times as much food  in proportion to their size as men  can. If a man could eat as much in  proportion lo his size as a sparrow-  is able to consume, he would need  a whole sheep for dinner, a couple  of dozen chickens for breakfast, and  six: turkeys for his evening meal. A  tree sparrow has been known to cat  700 grass seeds in a clay. Relative to  the bird's size, these seeds were as  big as an ordinary lunch basket  would be lo a  full-grown  man.  A bird's strength is equally amazing. A white-tailed eagle, weighing  twelve pounds, with a wing-spread  of 6 feet, has been known to pounce  on a pig weighing forty-two pounds,  raise it to a height of a hundred feet  and fly off with it. The bird had  covered a distance of half a mile before the pig's owner ' succeeded in  shooting the thief.  ���������     America's Valuable Waste  America  imports $2,000,000    worth  of waste rags annually just to make  .  writing  paper.   , About  1,400,000  tons  of flax  straw are -burned  or allowed  to   go   to   waste  in  the States   every  year, but    specialists    in the Depart-*-'  ment of Agriculture have shown that  it can be used for making paper and  fibre   board.

Silk and serge in combination answers the question about favored materials.  There is scarcely a season when blue is not in favor. The  model emphasizing the vogue of the cape collar is made of  blue serge and blue satin. A noteworthy feature of the frock  is its straight line from shoulder to hem. Other points which  stand out are the use of worsted embroidery and the close-fitting.collar.  The jacket effect which always stands in favor is cleverly introduced in the dark-green frock. The manner in which  the belt is concealed at the sides is a hint to be taken by the  woman whose figure will not admit of a defined waist line.  /  2ft  F*2,  ������S  ������a  #���������  * V  THE .

Best Telephone Voices  "The best speakers on the telephone arc actresses;- and .the worst  .are military officers and policemen,"  said a telephone operator who deals  with   thousands  of  calls  every   week.  "Soldiers who arc accustomed to  giving orders, and policemen, too,  develop a way of clipping their  words. They also have a lot of  'blind spots' on their voices. That  is, they let the intonation drop every  now and then, so that you have to  seize at fragments of words.  "Actresses have rich, musical  voices, no matter how low pitched  they may sound on, the wire. This,  with a trained enunciation, makes  them ideal telephone speakers. It  is quite true, says the London Daily  Mail, that Americans are easier to  understand than English people because most of them talk slowly with  a certain 'sing-song' in their voices."

The'third stage was 'when tillage  agriculture was improved by the application of fertilizing agencies. Irrigation also was" resorted to, many  ancient peoples showing remarkable  engineering < skill in the solution of  their aquatic problems.  One remarkable fact in connection  with agriculture in Ancient Persia is  that in the valleys, where that industry was chiefly centred, most of the  agricultural land is not natural soil,  but has been assembled and put in  place  artificially.  The most characteristic feature of  a Peruvian farm was its terraces, and  were for the purpose of preventing  the rain from washing away thc soil  to the lower levels.  To us this construction of artificial land in the warm valleys seems  almost incredible..- Even irrigation is  now looked upon as a highly specialized branch of the art. We look to  our western irrigation section with  pride, and marvel at "the .simple apparatus necessary for a market garden system.of artificial watering. But  our undertakings sink into insignifi-  cance'in the face of this vanquished  southern race. ' * . - " -  The narrow floors and steep' walls  ���������which would appear-"utterly"worthless to our engineers were transformed into fertile lands, and weie the  homes of teeming populations in prehistoric days. That the work was  done jsvell there can be little doubt,  for even today, after the lapse of  centuries, the lands are cultivated  and   support  a  modern  population.  The labor spent in the construction of these terraces shows how important they were considered to be.  We learn from the early Spanish historians that the Incas had special  gardens for thc raising of potatoes  for the royal household. There .vas  a general belief that the growth of  crops and the fecundity of thc soil  was dependent upon the welfare of  the royal family. Thus the Inca was  cared for and every precaution taken  to guard his royal person, no matter  whether he was loved or hated by his  subjects.  A Valuable Discovery  The report that a German scientist  has discovered a method of making  paper out of cotton plant stocks is  dividing interest with the war news.  If confirmed, the discovery will rank  as one of thc most important of modern times. The increasing use of  paper and the steady growth in size  of newspapers has created a demand  greater than the paper-makers can  supply and is threatening early exhaustion of the pulp lands of the  world. Although the paper mills of  the United States and Canada in the  five months ending with May produced the enormdus total of 800,000  tons, exceeding by 13 per cent, the  production of 1915 for the same period.  heated stoves, pipes 'and chimneys.  The amount of carelessness in this  respect is, simply appalling,' which is  all the more surprising in view of the  fact that'most of our homes are like  tinder boxes. Chimneys should be  built from the ground or the foundation \of the building^ and , not on  wooden brackets. "The walls should^  be eight inches thick, unless the"  chimney is lined vwith terra_cotta or  chimney tile.- Stove pipes,should not  pass through attics or, ,other conceal-'  ed places, but should" enter the chimney below the ceiling where they will  be in plain view and defects can be  easily seen.  Stove and furnace pipes should not  be placed within 12 inches of wood-"  work, unless the -woodwork is properly protected by tin. or asbestos.  Pipes passing through floors or partitions should be protected by metal  farmer's best friends.  " The-motor truck, the stationary  gas engine, and the tractor each  have their own particular place upon  the farm, and their increased use  is, by all means, to be encouraged.  But no farmer can do without horses  altogether. The idealnpower equipment,for the farm consists of'engines, either stationary, portable or  traction, to do the heavy drudgery  of farm work and horses to do the  lighter tasks that require greater  flexibility.  The engine is the horse's best  friend "because it relieves him of  much of the hard work on the farm,  Particularly is this true of the 'tractor.

Ashes, sjhould be placed in co"ve,r.ed  metal"cansY or if placed outside they  should be immediately wet down to  prevent "sparks  from blowing about.  Do not allow rubbish to accumulate in dark corners and keep the  basement clean".  After painting or oiling floors the  oily rags should be immediately destroyed; a rag soaked in linseed or  other vegetable oils, if rolled up  tightly or covered with other material to confine the Jieat, will ignite  spontaneously in a few hours.  Be careful with coal oil lamps; see  that, they are clean and well filled  and that the wicks fit right. Never  use coal oil or gasoline to light the  fire in the stove, many deaths are  caused in this way.  Never attempt to thaw frozen water pipes with flame such as burning  paper, candles,'etc.; use a cloth soaked in  hot  water.  It is well to have something  handy to extinguish a fire in its in-  cipiency; a 2 1-2-gallon chemical extinguisher is about the best for that  purpose. Some fires can be smothered with a coat or something of that  nature.  To be turned out of your home half  clad on a cold winter night is unpleasant, to say the. least, and a few  simple precautions will greatly lessen  the danger.  Who Was It?

In other words, every  Scotsman born in Scotland is also a  Frenchman, and is thus possessed of  two nationalities.  Rheims has been very prominent  during the present war, and it was  there, after his coronation in 1429,  that Charles VII. promulgated a decree that, in return for the assistance rendered by the Scottish soldiers to Joan of Arc, who defeated  thc English and. made his coronation  possible, Scotsmen were for all time  to 'be considered free citizens of  France.  Now the whirligig of time has once  more brought the Scots to the neighborhood of Rheims to assist their  fellow-French citizens, not against  the English, but, in conjunction with  them, against the would be destroyers of civilization.  tcntion of farmers who make a specialty of hog 'raising is naturally  turned to Western Canada. No  country in the world offers greater  inducements to the settler who wishes to turn his farm products into cash  by the pork route than does Western  Canada, and farmers who are now  raising hogs on the more expensive  lands of the East' and South would  do well to give consideration to the  somewhat,, striking .facts 'outlined  hereunder.  It is the natural Jdesire of every  farmer who --does������not "-already own  his land to become an owner, and  many who are already ^owners wish  to increase their holdings. ' How  many hogs must a man raise on his  expensive United States land to secure enough to buy another acre, and  how many must he raise in Western  Ca'nada for the same purpose? Figure it. out this way:���������  '���������' A farmer in the Middle West  raises_ a 200-lb hog, which, owing to  the high price of land, heavy taxes,  and the liability to disease, costs him  say, $12 to raise. He sells it at 8c  .a pound, amounting to $16 for the  hog, which gives him a profit of $4.  If,he is operating on land worth $100  an acre, he will therefore have to  raise,25 hogs to clear enough money  to buy an acre of land. The farmer  in Western Canada can raise a hog  of the same weight for about $8 on  account of the small investment in  land, combined with the big production per acre, the low taxes, and the  freedom from disease. Suppose he  sells this hog for the same price as  his American competitor, $16 (as a  matter of fact, the Canadian price is  ruling higher), he clears $8 on the  hog, and with three such hogs he  clears enough money to buy an acre  of land at $24, which for fertility is  not only equal but superior to the  land his competitor in the United  States is working at $100 per acre.  Taking this case as typical, it boils  itself down to this, that the farmer  on $100 per acre land must raise 25  hogs in order to have enough profit  to buy another acre of land, whereas the farmer in Western Canada can  buy another acre on the profits from  three hogs.  These  facts  are  submitted  for  the  destroys. "This will not hurt you,"  says whiskey, and lights ^the light of  hope a little farther on in the swamp  and the victim flounders on farther  and deeper. "You're a man of strong  will," says Whiskey, "and can control  yourself and stop when you please."  "I know I can," says the whiskey  drinker and drinks again and the mud  of the swamp rises a little higher  upon  him. s-  What the individual cannot' do for  himself, the government of thc nation can do for all. No millions of,  dollars would be required, no patient  work for years, simply the expression of the national conscience in a  national way forbidding the sale of  alcoholic poisons that cause drunkenness and death. .  , To put an end to the sale of alcoholic poisons will mean that hundreds of thousands will be freed from  bitter slavery. Millions of children  and their mothers will be made happier. Waste'd lives will be made productive. The number of prison cells  inhabited will be reduced-by half and  crime and its stench and horror will  be cut in two.  Wholesale poisoning for profits  under government license with government tax will hot disgrace the  countiy for ever. The swamp will  disappear, from our civilization "and  the,unhappy millions that dwell in it  will be set free.���������H.

Maclure  Sclanders, Secretary of the Saskatoon  Board  of Trade.  "Immigrants to Saskatchewan from  the dry wheat area of thc United  States taught thc real settlers there  how to grow grain successfully and  so brought millions in wealth to that  far away section of the Dominion of  Canada. So writes F. Maclure Sclanders, Commissioner of the Board of  Trade of Saskatoon, Sask., to thc  Transcript.  "We have to thank the Americans  for the discovery of this wonderful  district which our own government  had previously condemned as unsuitable for agricultural purposes.

"However,, our immigrants originally came largely from Eastern Canada, where the precipitation is very  heavy, and, of course, eastern methods of tillage were hopeless here.

C.  gull   u  oom  Nineteen  BY  FLORENCE WARDEN  WARD, LOCK &CO., LIMITED  London, Melbour&c, aid Toronto  %s  (Continued)  Scarcely had she picked up these  pieces of paper and put them carefully into her bag, when a sound behind her made her look round; and  there, peering fearfully at her over  the wooden foot of the bedstead,  were a pair of round, dark eyes,  black-fringed, soft, most beautiful ���������  the eyes of the small boy.  "Papa!" croaked the child in a  quavery voice.  That word, that cry, coming suddenly upon her iii all her knowledge  of the fearful accident which had  come to the man with1 thc fair beard,  brought the tears lo Mabin's eyes  and  choked her.  "Papa!" cried he again, much  louder, and with a note of alarm in  his  pretty voice.  Mabin rose to her feet,- thc child  watching her with increasing distress.  " 'ere Papa?" demanded he peremptorily.  Her pity, her anxiety on account  of father and son alike gave a tone  of deepest tenderness to Mabin's  voice as she answered the boy, approaching the bed as she did so, and  holding out a  caressing hand.  "Oh, we'll find him presently, never  fear!"   she     cried     encouragingly,   as  she  went  close   to  him,  put her arm  round  him and gave him a kiss.  He   did  not  exactly  resent  the   at-  ��������� tention, but he was not grateful. /He  stared   at   her,   and   it   seemed   as   if  yholhcr moment would see him puck-  . cring up his lip for a good cry.  She was thankful to find that he  .was apparently English, though she  seemed to detect traces of a foreign  accent in his speech, and of a certain indistinctness which seemed to  her  traceable to  thc same cause.  To avert the calamity of a flood  of tears, which would make him  wholly unintelligible, Mabin seized  upon the Teddy bear as a diversion.  "'Why, look," cried she, seizing the  bear and pointing-to his stolid, bead-  .ikc  eye's,  "he's going to  cry.!"  Arrested on the threshold of his  own outburst, the boy turned his  \ycs upon the bear, and, poking a  -*oft finger, .into its face, said with  conviction���������  "No, he i'n't; Teddy don't never  c'y!"  - 'Here was an opening for a moral  lesson. Mabin sealed herself on thc  edge of the bed, put one arm round  thc'boy and, looking gravely at the  bear, remarked���������  "That's because lie's good. I. wish  all little boys were as good as he  is!"  This seemed a novel and worthy  idea.-The boy pondered it.  "I i'n't naughty now!" he remarked  with a certain emphasis indicative of  a guilty conscience. "Dibs dood  now."  "Oh, ves," assented Mabin quickly.  "Quite  good."  He stared at her thoughtfully, and  then inquired���������  "Is oo  a'ways dood?"  "Well,   I   always   try   to   be,"   said  she modestly.  This, however, did not satisfy him.  "Big peopoo i'n't a'ways dood," he  remarked  darkly.  "Well, your papa is always good,  isn't he?" said Mabin, bringing him  back to.that subject which, although  a painful one, had to be investigated.  -He nodded with decision.  *    " 'Es,'Papa a'ways twite dood. Why  didn't he come wivvoo?"    -  ���������This was a question hard to answer.  "He'll come presently," said she.  "Tell me, where was he going to  take you?"  The boy scrambled close to her as  she sat on the edge of the bed, and  clashed into minute but scarcely intelligible confidences. All she could  gather, listen attentively as she  would," was that Papa and,Dibs were  going to a great big house, oh! as  big as ever so big, where there were  wabbits and horses and peacocks and  pigeons, and- apples gwowing on thc  twees, apples to eat, and 3rittoo twees  wiv fonts on zem, and yitloo haiwy  balls dood to cat, which seemed to  Mabin lo be a roundabout description of gooseberry bushes, as given  to one who had never seen such  things.  "And who is 1 lint lives in the great  big house with the rabbits and peacocks and all those nice things,  Dibs?" she asked1; as he climbed of  his own accord on to her knees and  began to play with the big flat buttons on  her coat.  "My g'anpa yives in zc big house,"  he explained readily. "And Papa  says he'll give Dibs a pony to yidc  on, an'���������an'"���������his memory failed him  for a moment, but presently he finished up triumphantly���������"and a big clog  wiv curly hair yikc Dibs's."  "How lovely!" said Mabin, making  up her mind, even .as she listened to  thc boyish prattle, to help the poor  child to find this kindly home which  had   been   promised   him.  For she began to perceive the outline of an intelligible story, and settled in her mind that the' fair-bearded  man, having- been away from England for years, was returning with  his little son to the home of his father - when he was attacked and  struck down. '.."',  "Do you know the name of the  great big house where Grandpapa  lives?" she asked.  Dibs did/not like to admit that he  was ignorant on"this important point.  He nodded vaguely, and said-���������  '"Es; a g-'cat-big-house, ever so  big. It hasn't dot a name," he added, to cover up the deficiencies of  his own knowledge.  "Is it far away from here?" asked  Mabin. ���������  "No," said he, "Papa and Dibs  docs in zc tyain zat does ever so  quick."  "And what is Dibs' other name?"  asked  she.  "My   name   is   Zooyus   Moore."  "Zooyus Moore?" repeated she, incredulously.  "Zere's inorc'n zat in my name, but  Papa says zat's enough," observed  Dibs. "And he calls me Dibs. I  yikc to be called Dibs!"  "All right, Dibs. And what is  your Papa called? I mean, what do  other people call him?" asked  she.  "Zcy gen'wy calls him 'sir' " replied  Dibs  ingeniously.  "Yes;   but  that's   not  his  name!"  "No,"   said   thc   boy.  And then he stopped, aware that he  was unequal to coping with this new  difficulty. r  "His name is Moore, l.oo?" she  suggested.  He answered so uncertainly that  she saw he was puzzled.  "Ye���������es," he said. Then, after a  pause, he added: "Zat's not all of his  name.    Zat's onlv a    yickoo    bit    of  "Can't you remember the rest ?"_  But Zooyus Moore was growing  restless under an examination in  which he fell that he was at a disadvantage.  "Papa will tell you zc west," he  said confidently. Then, delighted lo  be able to turn the tables upon her,  he demanded: "What's your name?"  "Mabin   West," she said.  He  laughed.  "Alabin West? Zat's a vewy funny  name!" he said. He stared al her,  and then said���������  "I sought you was ze auntie Papa  said 1 should see when I got to  G'anpa's  big house!"  "What was her name?" asked Mabin eagerly.  He  was   puzzled   again.  "It was Auntie," he replied, after  a  thoughtful pause.  She did not know what to say or  what to do. Perhaps the best thing  to begin with would be a close interrogation of the manager of the  hotel. But it was coining more and  more plain lo Mabin that the fair-  bearded stranger had come straight  off a ship, that he had clashed into a  hotel and left his boy there while he  kept an appointment, and thai it was  at thc office where she had met him  that she must look for further information.  In thc meantime, she could not  leave the child alone at the hotel,  especially after the broken entreaties  of his father that she would take care  of his treasure. She felt -as if she  had been made the recipient of a  solemn charge. On thc whole, she  decided, even while thc boy, putting  one arm'round her neck affectionately, entertained her with some childish prattle about the "wabbits" he  was to1 have to keep at "G'anpa's,"  that the.best thing she could do was  to take thc boy home to her mother,  leaving a nole with the manager to  be given lo the boy's father if he  should   come  back  there.  This course she followed. Thc  boy insisted upon accompanying her  downstairs when she went to ask for  a pen and paper. She wrote a little  note, without any heading, saying  that she was going to take the boy  home to her mother for the present,  and giving her address. This note  she gave to the manager, who, as  she had expected, had no idea who  thc stranger was who had brought  thc boy to the hotel and left him  there that morning.  He was quite willing that the boy  should go away with Mabin, having  been informed by thc boy's father  that his sister would come and fetch  thc child, and being too glad to be  rid of an embarrassing charge, to  make any inquiry into Mabin's credentials.  (To" Be  Continued.)  The Bertillon System  Tested by Bankers  American Financial Institutions Take  Thumb Prints  of Depositors  Bankers in Pittsburg, especially  those who cater largely to foreigners,  are watching with much interest an  experiment being carried on by certain Eastern bankers to facilitate the  banks' dealings with foreign depositors. This experiment is the installation of a system of thumb-print  taking which has its basis in thc  well-known theory of thai section of  the Bertillon system. In one bank  alone, in Philadelphia, there are 1,200  depositors whose thumb prints arc  registered in the bank and who can  draw funds from their deposits simply by permitting the'bank officials  lo compare thc whorls on their  thumbs with thc prints taken and  preserved when their accounts were  opened. lt is claimed thai, under  this system, it is absolutely impossible for a person to secure from a  bank money which docs not rightfully  belong lo  him.  Thc system was o'riginally instituted as an aid to foreigners and for  those who cannot write. Al one  time it was the custom in most banks  to refuse deposits unless the would-  be depositor could sign his - name.  Through thc Philadelphia innovation  such a person can go to a bank and  open an account by merely pressing  thc fingers of his right hand lightly  on a glass plate covered with specially prepared ink. The impression is  transferred to a card and is filed. Two  impressions are made, one filed under the name of the depositor and  thc other under the scientific description of the markings. Thc latter  method is used, principally as a safeguard for foreign women, who oft-  times open an account in their maiden names and later attempt to  withdraw money by giving marriage  names, this usually causing much confusion if the woman speaks bul broken English.  Thc thumb prints are also used in  thc case of an aged person whose  signature is "shaky" and with those  whose writing is hard to decipher. It-  is also coming into wide use with  children,, because of thc fact that  children's handwriting changes- with  maturity, while the thumb markings  never do.

Thc drill sergeant, quoted in the  London Daily Mail, made thc 'statement positivelv.  "First of all," he said, "they know  how to give thc word of command, a  very important consideration. They  are never shy or self-conscious, and  they impress the men with their personality. Give me an educated actor  and I will promise you a good officer.  "Schoolmasters make the best  non-commissioned     officers. Busi  ness men 1 have found rather difficult. They are intelligent enough,  bul they are not what you may call  adaptable."  A staff officer, speaking on flic  same subject, said:  "Professions calling for the exercise of imagination and 'observation, generally speaking, provide first  class officers.

They were invariably the first lo notice any change in the enemy's dispositions and both were Fleet street  journalists.

Resourceful Canada  Quick Return  to  Normal  Conditions  After the War, Is Predicted  Just previous to thc war in which  it was a factor, Canada was suffering  from reaction following western land  speculation and over-expansion in  cosily directions. The times were  hard, many were unemployed.    But if  The   response   was   generous   for'   6,  740 acres of grain was promised.  It was then realized that,the best  thing that could be done 'would be  to sell .the wheat, as it was of many  grades, and use the tolal proceeds towards purchasing No. 1 , northern  wheat in order that the flour might  be of uniform grade. This course  was followed, and 80,000 bushels, of  thc best Canadian wheal was purchased and manufactured into 3,200,-  000 pounds of the best-flour obtainable. This huge shipment left Moose  Jaw,   Sask.,  on August  9th.  This flour, was shipped in 40,000  bags, each containing" 80 pounds and  inscribed with the emblem of the association and the words: "Saskatchewan Flour milled from No. 1 northern  wheat, grown and donated to the  Empire by thc Saskatchewan 'Grain  Growers' Association, Regina, Sask.,  Canada." Each of the forty cars  was decorated with a banner on each  side bearing the emblem of the association and the inscription: "This  trainload of flour is 'a gift to the Em  City - of Quebec    Will Erect    Monument to Louis Herbert, Who  Arrived in  1617  The first farmer settler in Canada  who-lived on,thc produce of the soil  was Louis Herbert, an apothecary  from Paris, who landed in Quebec in -  1617 with his wife and children, and  at once started to clear and cultivate  the soil on what is now the site of  the'Cathedral of Quebec, of the Seminary and of this part of the Upper  Town extending from' St. Famille  street lo thc Hotel Dicu. At that  time that part of the city was called  "Hebert's Farm." With a spade as  his only tool, he worked and reworked the soil until it was ready to receive seed. He threw in the seed  from France; planted apple and rose  trees, and, at last, saw undulating in  the breeze, the golden ears, the flow-'  crs and fruits from his' motherland.

Labor Exchanges  Movement     Started     to     Establish  Branches in Western Provinces  A movement was started in Winnipeg this week which, if it matciial-  izes, is expected lo be of great assistance in regulating the labor market in Western Canada.^ As set forth,  in a resolution adopted at a meeting  held at thc Industrial bureau, thc objects of the proposed organization  are, briefly, to secure legislation in  thc three prairie provinces that will  make it an offence to charge a fee  for giving, or securing employment  or for introducing "anyone for thc  purpose ol securing work; and tb establish in Winnipeg, Brandon, Moose  Jaw, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton  and Lethbridge fully equipped labor  exchanges, each province Scaling thc,  expense of" maintaining its own exchange, and that the city -council,  Grain Growers' Association, and  Trades and Labor Council in each  city be inviled - to appoint two of  their number 10 form a^ local advisory  committee.  It is also proposed thai one ccn:  tral office be maintained at Winnipeg,  Rogina and Edmonton, avhich shall be  responsible for all exchanges, and  that thc I superintendence v shall be  under a clomniission of'six members,  one' appointed by each of thc three  governments and one by thc Trades  and Labor Councils of each provihec,  such commission to have full power  to appoint all officers of the local  and central  exchanges. ������ q,���������  Thc gentlemen present at the  meeting were: Thomas Molloy, of  the department of labor, Saskatchewan; Aid.

U.     1122  A Mistake    to Think That    Women  Are Capable of Hard Work  The Weekly Sun, which is published chiefly in the interest of Ontario  farmers and their wives, depiccatcs  thc employment of women in the  hard outdoor w'ork of the large  farms. The writer acknowledges  thai many country women do little  work in the open. For many of these  a shaie in lhe farm work v>ould be a  benefit.  In answer to an older contributor,  the writer says that though many of  the women among the early settlers  who took their share of farm work  and managed their homes and reared  llfcir children lived to a good old age,  many others broke down under the  strain, and died in what ought to  have been the prime of life.  There is much truth in_ this contention, lt is a mistake tb think that  women can ��������� beat as heavy burdens  and lift as great weights as men can.  The plow and lhe axe are not implements which women should be asked  to use.  On thc other hand, young women  can do much of the lighter work of  farm and garden with benefit to their  health. The wife and mother who  cares for her childien and keeps the  house -has little time for outdoor  work, however she may like it. If  the farmer were as gcncious about  piocuiiug for lis home labor-siving  machinery as he is about buying it  for his own occupations, .country  housekeepers, woiild have more leisure" than they'have, now. The old  idea that woman is a' helpmate for  ma'n is the true one. Rivalry, or'even  independence is not natural. Mtii  and women were meant to work together not only on the farm but in  business, in the church and in the  state. We should hot have _ needed  a war to prove that women's work  is the complement cf men's. When  it is over thcr.c. arc many who fear  that women will insist on occupying  the places in which they have found  cinplovnicnt, however arduous.  Where this is necessary, as in: the  case of those Who have disabled men  to support, the women will doubtless  claim thc right to earn high wages,  but- the maiorily of women will be  onlv too ciad to return to their  household duties. Oiic thing mav be  hoped, and that is that thcr.e.will be  fewer idle, useless lives. .Tens of  thousands of women 1 aye. learned  the happiness that comes of service.  '-���������Victoria Colonist.  German War Losses   ,  Casualty List to Date Said to Total  Over Four Million ,,  The New *York Evening Post recently received from George von  Skal, publicity representative 111 New  York of the German Government, a  protest against what he spoke of as  the exaggeration of* German losses in  the war, and an invitation to examine and, analyze' thc official reports,  which lie believed would show that  the actual casualties were much below the estimates made by British,  -French and United . States authorities.  The Post' accepted the invitation,  and after a careful investigation  comes to tlTe, conclusion that the estimates made by the Allies do not  overstate Germany's losses. The  method followed by The Post's statistician was simple. The German  official list of killed, wounded and  missing up to May 13 contains 12,482  pages. It probably included the bulk  of the losses up to -about a month  prior to the date of publication, although in many instances much more  than a month appears to have elapsed between the date of thc casualty  and the recording , of the victim's  name. * N  The Post stales than an analysis  of Mr. von.Skal's list showed that  the pages averaged about 275 names.  It was found that pages generally  contained from 140 to 370 names, arranged in three columns. , Very  rarely columns were ifound'with but  fifteen or twenty- names. Thc fair  avciagc of ten pages, taken at random, ..and representative - of all the  different lcngls, was 275. Multiplying 275 by the total of pages in thc  lists up lo a,nd including Mav 13, 12,-  482, gave a gross total of "3,432,550  names. Next, 1,074 separate casualties were singled out and analyzed.  It was found that corrections, which,  of course, meant duplications of  names previously printed, " amounted  to 6 per cent., but Of this 6 per cent,  one-half, or 3 per cent., of the gross  total were men previously reported  missing or wounded and now reported dead. In other words, but one-  half of thc coirectipns made indicated an actual saving in man-power.  Thc subtiaclion of the entire 6 per  cent.,- or 205,953 corrections,- from  the gross total of 3,432,550 casualties,  reduced the latter lo a net total of  3,226,597, 'which represents lhe minimum of losses lo be figured from  the  official German lists.   -  The dead, it* is estimated bv the  same process, numbered ,789,485.  while 274p04 set clow 1.1 as "missing,"  and cither killed or captured, biing  thc total loss, apart from the wastage among the wounded, to considerably over a^ million. The German  army has done more hard fighting  during the past three months on both  the eastern and western fronts than  in any previous six months of the  war. "It is reasonable to assume,  therefore, that -Germany's losses to  date in killed alone are over a million, and that her total losses in killed, wounded an'd missing have been  at least four millions, of whom perhaps two millions of slightly'wounded have iclurned to thc front after  rccovciy. A net loss'of two million  men who have been killed, captured,  or so severely wounded as lo be unfit for further service, lepresents  more than a fourth of the men of  military age in the German Empire.  That is a fearful pi ice to pay for the  mad ambitions of thc bureaucrats *of  Berlin.

" If it  . were actually true that outside  investors awaited .the result of  the British Columbia election,  it is likely that these investors  have alieady forgotten how  they were expected to conduct  themselves, and they will now  set about investing in British  Columbia mines and other enterprises, as though there had  been no election at all. This is  usually the way of it. At this  distance one does not need to  possess any feeling of bias with  respect to British Oolumbia  politics in order to express the  opinion that outside capital will  continue to receive encouraga-  ment from Liberals and Conservatives alike.  Painting Farm Implements.  The painting  of farm implements for their protection and  preservation has apparently received very little consideration  by   Canadian   farmers, if   one  may judge by the information  secm*ed by the commission on  conservation in the surven conducted on 100 farms on each of  four counties in Ontario. The  use of paint on both the metal  and wooden parts of machinery  gives a protecting cover against  deterioration by use and weathr  apart altogether from the general   improvement  in   appearance.    The   cost   of   prepared  paint for the  purpose is very  small,   and experience   in   the  work is unnecessary. The initial  -cost of-farm implements means  to the farmer a large outlay.  This investment should be pro  tected. Depreciation from rot  and rust is rapid, when once  these conditions are established,  for the actual money saving a������  well as for the more presperou-  appearance it gives to the farm  and farmer, the regular ovei  hauling and painting of the  farm implements should be a  recognized pai't of the year's  work.���������Conservation.
