The time is fast approaching  when there will be brought  about a political revolution in  the Dominion, with respect to  the type of men who are sent  as representatives of the people  to Ottawa.

The public Avith  money to invest is  in  the market buying  the good mining stocks.    Every  day sees hundreds  of new investors and speculators Decerning interested in- these  securities.    Aud considering the wonderful  earnings   of   producing  companies and  the sensational  advances scored in the markets  by  these shares, there is little  wonder  that   mining   holds   a  greater attraction foi" investors,  big and  little,  than any other  class of securities.    That envy  loves a   shining   mirk  is evi  dencod   dy'tlie   attacks   made  from time to time on the neAvly  formed  mining  companies   by  the selfish press  of  the  ultra-  conservative financial interests.

The entomological branch of  the Dominion department.- of  agriculture has issued Circular  No. 9 on ."Common Garden Insects and their Control." This  publication includes an account  of the 'more important insect-  pests of tlie floAver and vegetable garden. It has been prepared for Avidc distribution at  this    time    Avhen    everywhere  efforts are  earnestly made to increase the production of vegetable foods, etc., iu back yards,  Vcicant,. lots and othei- areas  near cities and towns. The remedial measures for controlling  the common destructive species  and also formula- for the making of the chief insecticides are  giA'en. For'easy- reference the  insects  are  grouped under the  throughout Canada  conic"'! promoter ot mining en  terprises. As a matter of fact  the mining bu������>iiit-:>5 iit> a aa-IioIc  Avould be greatly benefitted it  more engineers would take up  the study of mining finance and  in this way broaden the scope  of their operations.  A not her passing even t av.Ii ich  shows tho way thc '���������investment  winds are blowing is found in  the fact that some of the prominent bond houses have been  compelled to take cognizance of  the widespread interest, in the-  inining issues. We find t he-  quotation sheets of the bond  houses of greater interest since-  they began priuting the market  quotations on the more important mining stocks. This shows  tho trend of uiA-c'stnients into  these newer money nmking issues aud away- from.-the small  interest-bearing mortgages.  The -metals continue to hold  the new record prices recently  attained and theie is vevery indication that these prices will  further .advance as the full extent of the needs of tho Avorld  for metals are known* Petroleum products are groAving in  deniand and there promises to  be a sharp advance iu prices of  these products in the near future. EA*ery condition is favorable for steadily increasing  from mining, and th'e  investing public is  fully aAvare of this condition.  Hence thc demand for good  mining shares.���������Denver, Colo.,  Mining Record. ,  Just space for "Subscribe Noav."  intelligent  ;3.,rav*KftUSEaSg53  S5aa:%������sujrjafc������������.iifa������-T*������m^*-* I;!':V',-������*.  /  XEM     GAZETTE,     HEDLEY.     &   UT  Crimes of Germany  Can  Never Live  Down  Disgrace*"-of  Her Acts  " Tlie history of the war may be for.  gotten,  the terrible stories    told    by  the commissions that investigated the  .-.--������������������ .- .       ,,  ,   .- . ���������- -....._,  jiiuum uo carried on ti  crimes committed" in- Belgium may'tI]C very jim;t ������ said Deputy Carroth  pass from memory, but the story of; er3i ������if thc-high cost of living- is to bi.  crmrts will  live    forever! abated.

It declares, regarding the scientific  development of natural resources,  that it is vital the Empire be placed  in a position enabling it to -rqsist  S any pressure which a foreign power,  or a group of powers, could exercise  in time of peapc or war through control of essential raw materials and  commodities.  It recommends that a complete  survey should accordingly be made  of the relation between empire production and empire requirements of  such materials-  With reference to such 'materials  and commodilic's as are mainly produced and controlled outside of the  Empire)" such as- cotton, petroleum,  nitrates and potash, the most careful  " inquiry is needed regarding the possibility of new sources of supply or  the finding of substitutes within thc  Empire. Survey and investigation in  this respect shoiijd be entrusted to  the new imperial development board,  vhich should work through existing  departments in the United Kingdom  and self-governing dominions and  local scientific departments and the  Imperial Institute for India, the  Crown colonics and protectorates.  The report recommends far great  er control by imperial and overseas  grants, the creation of an imperial  \ immigration authority for thc purpose of supervision, and a .further  consultative board to effect a proper  co-relation between the . central authority and the activities of the dominions.  It urges the need of providing adequate capital, training and assistance for intending soldier-settlers  and far greater attention to- the emigration of women from Great Britain  and increasing the same.  A proposal is made for thc interchange of school teachers between  the United Kingdom and the dominions.  The report emphasizes thc necessity of cheap, speedy and efficient  transport and recommends larger  vessels and larger harbors. For this  'improvement the schemes should'be  supervised by the imperial developments board.  ���������    The commission    suggests improv-  -   cd mail facilities, quicker routes and  some measure of government control  of  steamship     companies    regarding  ���������*>    freights-  Cheaper cabling is  regarded  as  an  ,'iirgcnt necessity.    The report states  that the. Dominion Royal Commission  favors state control of imperial wires  and the    commissioners' .recommend  state acquisition.  A considerable reduction in press  rates is proposed to enable a wide  dissemination of imperial news.  Dealing with trade questions .the  commissioners advocate th~c. speeding  up of the intelligence system, the  holding of periodic inter-impcrial exhibitions and thc unification of legislation, particularly the patents, trade  marks 'and companies laws.  Regarding the- creation of an imperial development board, the commissioners express the view that existing organizations are inadequate  to deal with matters of joint interest  to the empire as a whole, such as the  'scientific development of Empire resources, thc deepening of harbors on  a co-ordinated plan, cable service  and the preparation of statistics. In  its initial stage th'e board should be  advisory.' The following representation upon it is suggested:  The United   Kingdom,   India,   the  Crown    colonies    aud    protectorates,;  seven; South Africa,    Canada,    Aus  tralia,  New Zealand  and  Newfound  land, one each.  I,1:-". , ,_ -i_...       ._ ,  Says Mystic Monk's Power at Russian- Court Was Due to  Superstition  The superstitious .belief that thc  health and even the life of Grand  Duke Alexis, the young heir-apparent, depended on the presence of  Gregory Rasputin, the mystic monk  ���������a notion Which is generally known  to have accounted for Rasputin's trc-  mendous influence over the imperial  family���������is explained in thc following  extraordinary manner by thc Russky  Slovo:  "Rasputin, according to thc news*  paper, stated in confidence to friends  at convivial moments that he was  able to fortify this superstition with  the help of Madame Virubova, lady-  inc empress, and M.  Badniacf, court physician, until the  empress was absolutely convinced  that thc life of her son depended on  thc monk.  "Whenever Rasputin -\\as absent  for any length of time from thc  court Madame Virubova, according  to the monk's, story as given by the  obtained  Wealth of the Czar  He Retires in Very Good Financial  Circumstances  According to most opinions the  private fortune of Nicholas, ex-Czar  of Russia, is estimated at about $2,-  000,000,000.  I-lis wealth is largely invested in  foreign bonds and stocks. His holdings on this side are said to be extensive- It is" understood that he  owns $5,000,000,of the Pennsylvania  railroad's stocks. His name does not  appear in the lists of that corpora-  lion's stockholders for obvious reasons. Instead some nominal ouri-  ers appear.  Most o_f thc Czar's cash is deposited in the Bank of England- The  estimates of his deposits there arc  numerous. They run from fifty to  a hundred millioil*pounds.  The ex-Czar also owns about 6S0,-  000,000 acres of laud in Russia. Most  of Russia's mineral resources are his  private property- Into the Czar's  private treasury, according lo the  gold and silver output is annually  contributcd.  It is not known -whether thc Czar  will be allowed to retire from the  throne thc richest man in the world.  There arc some who believe that the  transfer of his financial resources to  those of Russia will be one of the  first steps of thc new Russian minister of finance. It would undoubtedly affect tht, exchange of the ruble  tremendously- It would make Russia financially stronger than she ever  was.  If the cx-Czar's American stocks  were confiscated they might be used,  it is pointed out, for the purchase of  munitions and other material here  for the -Russian army. That would  immediately raise thc ruble exchange.  Mif  ADVANCE  Roads Are   Crowdbd With Every Possible Variety of Vehicle,  Transporting Supplies for the Advancing Army,'and Present  Amazing Spectacle to Correspondents at the Front  A- correspondent at the front,  watching the sight of a great army  pursuing a foe, and trying to realize  to comprehend, the amazing labor  and effort such a process involves,  describes his impressions.  The lines which"*" thc British held  for four months before' Bapaume  are deserted. \ When thc correspondent came to TSapaume the British  troops were miles ahead���������how far^  none knew exactly, though in, the  distance the boom of field pieces  could be constantly heard- Neither  side was using heavy guns then���������the  time for them had not yet arrived.  The road from Albert, where the  statue of the virgin juts horizontally  from the top of the ruined cathedral  tower, but still miraculously held in  place, right up past Bapaume was  an unforgclable spectacle. Thc British soldiers had passed that way days  before and now everything necessary  to push thc Boche back past the f-lin-  denburg line of defense was being  brought up for their support.  Thc road everywhere was crowded  with every possible variety of vehicle- One passed hundreds and hundreds of huge motor lorries, bearing  supplies  of all descriptions.  Red Cross ambulances sped by al  great speed. Teams of American  mules  were hauling    great     wagons  yard there was a pitied shell hole..  Occasionally these craters were ten  feet m diameter and six feet deep.  In addition to- this, in several places  the Germans had blown-_p the road  when thc British were near Ba  paume- ,  "To put . this road in passable  shape in two or three days,had been.  a great feat for tfie British labor  battalions, worthy of tribute even,  under "the' most favorable circumstances.

Whenever  there is a mine crater they build fe  road around' its edge.  Alongside the road thousands of  men were working furiously laying"  a railway across the shell holes- The  Germans had destroyed their linea  very thoroughly, ,but the British engineers showed no signs of resentment. They were quite pleased, however, when they were able to use up  a length of German rails.

Rasputin always announced that 40  days,after his death Alexis would  fall ill. This prophecy . came true  with startling accuracy���������being caused  thc newspaper declares by Madame  Virubova administering another powder to thc little grand duke in the  hope of continuing the tradition of  Rasputin influence over the imperial  family and preparing  the way for  a  successor to him.

His  flagship on that occasion was the  King George V, and it will be recalled that al the very time when  tlie Archduke Francis Ferdinand was  murdered in SC-rajcvo, Sir George  W'arrender was cntei taiuing thc Kaiser on board tlie George V. As a  matter of fact, the Kaiser, as an honorary Admiral o'f the British Navy,  actually flew his flag at the head of  the Biitish Squadron, which, a wcik  cr two later cleared for action again-]  st his "mouse-hole" fleet.  In the course of an acount of the  visit of thc British Squadron, under  Sir Gi-orgc Wai render, to Kiel on  June 23, 191-1, it was stated that the  ships arrived in the bay during" tin.  night, and waited outside until the  morning. At an early hour the Ger-  ji-an officers attached to Sir George  Warrcndcr and Commodore Good-  enough boarded thc flagships, which  steamed in single column up thc harbor. H.M. battleship King George  A., flying Sir George Warrcndet's  flag, was leading, the battleships  Centurion, Aj.ix, and Audacious following in that order The cruiser;-,  headed by H.M. light cruiser Southampton, came next. The first salute  v as fired off Fiicdricltsorl, when a  gun   boomed   from   the   King  George  The sun pierced thc clouds as thc  ships passed this place in majestic  procession, headed by the flagship,  -which was so enveloped in smoke  that only the flashes of the saluting  guns denoted her whereabouts.  After the twenty-first gun of thc  sah'te had been fired, there was a  moment's silence, then a flash, and  thc cloud of snroke indicated the position of thc Friediichsort battery,  which now began in response to the  ���������   naval greeting of the visitors.  The British ships continued up thc  harbor, eagerly watched by hundreds  of eyes on launches and excursion  steamers. They filed past thc  squadron of German dreadnoughts  lying at their moorings in the harbor mouth. These were the four  giants of the Kaiser class���������Kaiscrin,  Prince Regent Luitpold. Konig Albert, and Kaiser���������the most formidable vessels of the German fleet,  v hich, however, arc of eailier date  than tlie British battleships. After  exchanging salutes with tlie German  flagship Friedrich der Grosse, which  was lying further up the harbor, the  battleships came smartly to their  moorings in line between the Friede-  rich der Groose and the Kaiser, the  cruisers  mooring nearer the shore.  In tiie evening of thc same daymen of the fleet went ashore. An-  account of that part of the proceedings make somewhat strange reading, in view of after, events.  Meanwhile the British tars (it was  stated in a narrative of the procced-  , ings), who in the forenoon remained  "* in, their ships,--were eagerly awaited  ashore,- and the arrivals of the men  who were given shore leave were  witnessed with great interest. The  innumerable cafes, taverns, and restaurants along the waterside and in  the streets leading down to th'e harbor which cater for the patronage of  Jack ashore had hung out Union  Jacks in honor of the guests, and  one enterprising host decorated his  premises with four Union Jacks, and  an assurance in English that thc  British  sailor is  welcome.  There were professions of friendliness in the German press in connection with this visit. The Keilcr Zei-  ��������� lung declared that the wish of the  dwellers by the German shore is for  peace and friendship with their British neighbors, and it hoped that each  of the two peoples wojild.be able to  unfold its powers freely in honorable  n'valry and friendship based on reciprocal respect.  On thc following day the Emperor  Wilheliri, on board the Holicnzoll.crn,  visited thc squadron. Compliments  were exchanged between that vessel  and the King George V. Afterwards  officers from thc British and Gorman flagships went aboard the llo-  hcnzollern to pay their respects to  the Emperor, who received Sir  Gcorge Warrcndcr at the head of the,  steps. ' I  ing results are expected  this year.  The co-operation of farmers own  ing or operating land favorably situated for the carrying on of sttcii  work is secured, thc-farmer putting  under thc direction of an officer of  the Dominion experimental farm  system a part of his farm having a  good wide frontage on a well-travelled highway, each field having tlie  same frontage along the same highway so that the crops and cultivation  arc unavoidably in evidence to the  casual traveler and easily inspected  by  the  interested   visitor.  The first year the department furnishes tne seed necessary to sow such  of thc fields as it is decided to put  under crop that year. In subsequent  >cars tlie farmer saves enough of the  best ol the crops grown on these  fields lo do^-the necessary sccdinir.  This, of course, providing the grain  pioduced is satisfactory as lo purity  and gcrniinativc power.  All cultural and harvesting operations in connection with these fields,  including the plowing, harrowing,  sowing and threshing of thc grain,  arc done by thc farmer. All the above  work is done in exactly such a way.  and at exactly such a time as directed  by thc illustration station division of  the Dominion experimental farms  sWcin. The farmer keeps a record  of thc amount of time taken to perform the different operations on cac'i  field and the grain harvested is  threshed .separately so that thc exact  \ ii-ld  of each   field  is known.  Thc records of thc work and of the  crops resulting together with brief  t'Oles made by the farmer each week,  aie duh entered on blank forms provided for the purpose and eacli week  thc farmer mails lo the Central Experimental farm at Ottawa, a form  filled out with particulars as to the  work done, general weather condition  and  crop progress.  In this way the farmers of various  districts of the two provinces will be  apprised of the results and the best  way lo operate their farms to obtain  these results.  German-American  Humorist  D. Thomas Curlin, the American  who has been visiting Germany for  the Norlhcliffc press of London on  thc strength of introductions supplied by Professor Hugo Munstcr-  burg, said in New York the other  day:  "Rather a joke, eh, to be doing  England's work with thc help of  Munslerburg  of  Harvard.

The bridge, across  the frontier from Haparanda to Tor-  nca, will connect the Swedish and  I-innish  railroad systems!  "The plan," says the Westiniristci  Gazette, "is of greaL practical im-  j't_rtancc for Anglo-Russian irTtcr-  communication, as at present traffic  has to go by sledge in winter" and  fci ry in summer.  "The     -Russo-Swedish     agreement  provides for continuous work on  the  bridge till its completion. Thc Swedish   stale    railway    department   .will  build     thc    whole   bridge,     charging  Russia the cost of the work and material  on  Russian  soil  or in   Russian  waters.     The     Swedish    government  is thus placed in the unusual position  of bridge builder in a foreign slate.  "The bridge over the Tornea Rivci  will be for a single track, which will  be  of  both    Russian    and     Swedish  gauge,  so  that trains of cither country   can   pass,   though   not   together.  The bridge will be 350 yards long.  "Thc present provisional estimate  of tlie total cost is 2,600,000 Swedish  crowns ( about $720,000)."  Thc Stockholm Tidninen observes  tl.al it would "like lo convince those  in Great Britain and France who retain a sympathetic interest in Sweden of the misunderstanding involved  iu the words "Swedish suspicions of  Russia," which arc so often reiterated in the countries of the Entente.  There is no suspicion (in Sweden)  that Russia contemplates "attacking  Sweden, or any doubt in the good  faith of thc Russian statesmen, who  from time to time have disavowed  such intentions, but at thc same time  it is not a mere condition of nervous  distrust which prevents Swedes from  envisaging thc possibilities of Russian policy through the . spectacles  that Great Britain and France would  like to provide them with for this  purpose."  Britain's Domestic Foe  Terrible Indictment  of    the    Liquor  Traffic in War Time  _ What noted scicnlistic and publicists describe as the "pro-German  poison in thc British army" is dealt  with in trenchant style in a brochure  written "by Arthur Mee and J.

Dairymen's convention recently held in Calgary,  when it was related*how* the industry  had grown from a mere beginning  till at present there was estimated  to-be 215,000 head of dairy cattle in  the province. The province of Alberta, according to George H. Barr,  chief of the" dairy division of the Department of .Agriculture, Ottawa, is  leading the rest of the Dominion in  butter-making, wonderful strides having been made in this industry during  thc past year.  The Home Garden  Canada must produce more foodstuffs. We have much vacant land  about our homes, which, 'if cultivated, would greatly add to the food  supply. Very little work is necessary, and the returns more than cor.'.,  pensate for thc effort. By helping  to provide thc food for your own  family you are releasing that much  additional for th'e general good, and  reducing the  cost  of living.  Department for French Aviation  In order to render more complete  and fertile the unity of. thc direction  of the aviation services before and  behind the lines, the French Minister  for War has just created a central-  department under his direction and  immediate authority.,  The direction has been entrusted  lo Gen. Guillemin, who has full authority over aeronautical services,  and will organize efficient collaboration .  The program to be carried out  consists principally in the determination of types of machines which  must meet the three great requirements of aviation, namely: pursuit, exploration (for adjustment of  fire, and _ aerial photography), and  bombardment.  Gen. Guillemin .. will secure the  construction of those machines in  series of intensive industrial production.  Took Good Care of Wilhelm  British   detectives  have    helped  to  protect  the Kaiser in France as well  as in England.    This fact is disclosed  in   the. memories   of_Baron   Fredrick  Owen,'   who    in     1878    accompanied  Prince William of Prussia (as he was  then  called)  on an incognito visit lo  Paris.    Through  the good offices    of  Queen  Victoria  two  men  from Scot-  - land  Yard  were attached  to  the party, every member of which was thoroughly  at  home  in   English.

About four the next morning he  was called 'to get up. When he  came down breakfast was ready.

Does Big Cash Business  * As showing the prosperity of thc  west, tlie announcement of one of thc  largest farm machinery companies  doing business in Western Canada is  very interesting. The company announces that during 1916 no less than  82 per cent, of its business in Southern Alberta was done on a cash basis. This shows that the farmers  must have had money long before  the last crop was harvested.  -The   fools .arc  not  all    dead  Hc-  yet.  She���������That's as true as von live..  The facts collected in this littl-;  book will be found of use to temperance advocates everywhere. The  writers laugh to scorn the  plea that rum is needed by  the soldiers and show what  terrible consequences , have followed in the train of the army l'quor  traditions as pursued at the" fiout.  An instance is given of a British Captain, who, under the influence of  drink, ordered a gunner lo fire on a  British hospital ship. The gunner  disobeyed orders and the Captain became so violent he had to be put in  irons.  The following extracts from the  book show the extent of the drink  evil in the old land:    > ���������  "Dr. Norman Maclean was -riding  in a tram, and an old man sat there  in great distress. He had lost his  son at the front. When he joined  the army he had never tasted alcohol but he found drink in his camp,  he found it in the trenches, he found  it all the way between,-and when he  came home on leave lo see his mother he was drunk every night. He  was drunk the night he went away  again, and in three days he was dead  "The last we saw of him," said the  poor old man between his sobs, "was  going away drunk, and his mother,  who is old-fashioned in her faith,  cannot get it out of her mind that no  diunkard can enter the Kingdom of  God."  "A wellknown public man went out  to France. A distinguished member  of the House of Lords sent him a  case of old brandy ,and one day thc  great man asked, for some. "Very  sorry, sir,'"--said the orderly, "bin  there is none left." "What!" said  the officer, "where is all that stuff  from Lord Blank?" "Very well, sir,  but a German shell fell into the case  and there is nothing left." The  great man's fists shut tight, and he  showed his teeth. "By God, they  shall pay for that!" said he. They had  broken Rheims Cathedral, they had  shattered Belgium, they had ruined.  Serbia, and Poland, and sunk the Lusitania, but by God, they should pay  for destroying his brandy! It is the  sort of mind that sits in Parliament  and lias its way in cabinets. It does  not like the disturbance of its social  habits, it does not know how drink  reacts upon us all; it believes that  Sir Con.an Doyle is a crank when he  says that the drink that is one man's  pleasure is another man's death."  "It is not even true that rum is  the only thing we can give our men  in the; trenches.. There are hot  drinks that we can -give them���������tea  and coffee and cocoa and drinks  made from meat���������things that spur a  hero on, with the sugar that goes to  the hero's blood and makes him  twice a hero when he leaps the parapet.- .-" ������������������:'��������� ;.���������'������������������'  "It is one of the marvellous things  about the human body that at a time  like that,'when a man is facing death,  the sugar,in "his blood  comes  to his  aid, and makes him twice the man he  thought he was. At the sight of. danger,  by  the  law of  a  higher power  than man, the sugar in a man's blood  is   increased  one-third,   as  if  Mother  Nature knew that her  son  had need  of  strength;   and  it  is   then   ,arid  at  that very hour, that the British government  gives  its  m.en  a  drink that j  makes  them -cold, and  that  can" only  be- made  by  the  destruction   of    the  sugar that would'.make  them warm.  It  is  unthinkable,  incredible,  but    it  is  true, and-'it is not true that there  is no alternative. It should be known  to every man in the four corners of  the United Kingdom  that the Y.-.M.  C.A., the most efficient organization  in the whole area of the war, is able  and   ready   to   relieve   the  authorities  of the labor of dealing out rum, and  to supply every man in the firing line  with   hot   tea  or  coffee     or,    cocoa.  There   is   not  a   physiologist   in   this  country' whose  heart  would   not    be  glad at the  thought of that!  there is  surely not  a  patriot  who   would   nol  leap with joy if it were done.  "The pitiful truth is that the State  provides thc means of degeneration,  and leaves it to the Y.M.C.A. to  lift a man up. Everywhere through-  cut the war the great moral forces  and. the forces of humanity are confronted with this hostile trade. It  hinders the Y.M.C.A.; it hampers  the Red Cross; there is not a moral  or a social worker ,not a doctor,or a  Red Cross nurse, who ��������� would not  gladly see it swept away. Where a  town does its duty, says one of our  Brigadier-Generals, the army is clean  and sober. . At Bedford, with bright  ai.d happpy places for the men to go  to, he had no drunkenness with his  men, but at Perth, where nobody  cared, whiskey was literally forced  down their throats and they were inundated with women.

A delegation which waited on the govcrniifenl on Thursday  asked that something be done to  meet the scarcity of hides. The  leather output is seriously affected.  There is likewise a shortage of wool.  Both of these commodities have been  secured largely from Australia and '  New Zealand, where restrictions on  imports are now imposed.  In an interview with Sir George  Foster, F. W. Beardmore, of Montreal, and E. Davis, of Newmarket, '  Ont., urged efforts to have the regulations relaxed so thai more supplies  can be available.' The price of boot  leather is going up to an almost prohibitive figure with no prospect - of  diminishing.  Tlie minister of Trade and Commerce will endeavor to do something'  to relieve  the present conditions."  Dogs and Sheep in Britain  There are. more dogs to the mile-in  Erilain than in any other country in  tlie world���������dogs for use, dogs for  sport and little pleasure dogs..,:.'-And  yet they do not prevent sheep-keeping. The country is in some parts  wild and open, in others closely inhabited- The conditions are not so  different from ours, except that there  arc niore covers and plantations  through which dogs can pass and  pounce on sheep. Gamekeeprs and  shepherds have thc dog census memorized and any wandering dog is subject to suspicion. Moreover, he is  apt to fall into the- traps necessary  to keep down the pest of rabbits.  Dogs of evil tendency or habit are  apt lo be spotted. With the large  number of dogs, however, these  things would nol avail if dog-owner3  did not feel responsible for their  dogs. The careless have that responsibility brought home to them.���������  Breeders' Gazette.  A Young Man's Game  "War," as Sir Douglas Haig re������  minds us, "is a young man's game."  A man of twenty-five is of greater  value than his father in., the hell  across the Channel.

Given to Training'in Our Agricultural Schools  Speaking before the annual con-  *��������� vcnlion of lhe Western Canada Irrigation Association at Kamloops, B.C.,  J tunes McCaig, of the, Alberta De-  paitment'of Agriculture, made the  prediction thai the time would come  when departments of Agriculture  would go much farlhei than they now  do in the matter of agricultural education. ���������  "After the- grcal days of lhe war'"  .said' Mr. McCaig, ',the direct efforts  <,f the department and Board of Ag-  -ricultural Education will double the  giade of training which wc now  have for the boys and girls in our  agricultural schools. If 1 were iu an  iirigation district it would be my interest to gu to the minister and im-  r ress upon him that when he starts  ii new" school in'an irrigation^, district it should be an irrigation education  that is  given  at that school."  The inference gathered from Mr.  McCaig's address was that the Department of Agriculture in Alberta  was planning to give greater attention to thc irrigation interests of the  province. The last two years have  been seasons of heavy rainfall, and  wonderful crops havc-'been produced  in what is generally considered the  dry area. For two years in succession  Southern Alberta, and some districts  in Saskatchewan, have produced tlie  gicatest crops on the American continent. It is worthy of note that  tnese great crops have been produced in the "dry" 'districts, which seems  lo indicate that, when a dry district  gels enough water it is more fertile  than a wet district. Indeed, this is  a scientific fact. The heavy rainfall  of wet. districts leaches much of the  fertility out of the soil.  The value of thc dry area of Western Canada, .when water is applied, is  only, beginning lo be recognized.  Special Government schools for education in the science of irrigation  farming will undoubtedly give a great  impetus to that branch of agriculture.

It was reserved for Lester Woolsey  assistant to Secretary of Stale Lansing, to discover the missing psychological link between Boston beans  and war diplomacy. Entrusted,with  the task of handing passports to the  German "Ambassador, Mr. Woolsey,  with all the native cunning of the  sixteenth century Cardinal-statesman,  decided to perform his delicate mission with the stricest secrecy. He  did not hire a closed automobile or  resort to disguise. Unconcernedly  he slrollled out of his office at the  usual luncheon hour with the historic  documents in his pocket, and went by  a circuitous route to���������a simple restaurant. "Boston beans with!" yelled the attendant, not knowing that  this particular plate of beans was  making history. But Mr. Woolsey  had unexpected company as he mini  ched his,beans.

He is very insistent that the  job must be thoroughly done this  time���������that the snake must not only  be "scotched" but killed.  His warning about doing the job  thoroughly derives especial significance from the oppoitunity he possessed, for becoming acquainted with  tlie extreme artfulness of the attempts made by the German government tp weave the meshes of sleep  wherein they hoped to- catch the  British when thc European war, for  which they-were steadily preparing  actually broke out. In the early winter of 1907 the kaiser visited "England.  He was���������as usual when he paid one  of his frequent visits to England���������  overflowing with loving kindness towards the British., At Windsor  Castle lie was a guest of King Edward, and w.as all grace and grac-  iousness.  Now, it so happened that ' Lord  Eshcr, at that lime, was deputy constable at Windsor Caslle, and, in that  capacity, was at .Windsor during the  kaiser's stay there. He happened  moreover, to be as well a member  of the committee of Imperial defence.  Of this latter fact the kaiser "was,  of course, well aware. All urbanity,  he sought to discuss with the deputy  constable at Windsor Castle the  question of British naval programs  and defences.  _ However, Lord Esher is no fool.  He realized that "fine words butter  no parsnips," and that beneath all  the kaiser's soft satider lay dark and  Changes in House of Lords  They are Now Only About a Dozen  Fewer Peers Than Members  of Parliament  Despite the ravages of the war thc  House of Lords now numbers 19  iiiorc peers than it did a year ago.

Thc total  number of the-- House would have  been larger but "for thc fact 'that  minors succeeded to several peerages". Three peerages have become  extinct through lack of heirs���������the  baronets'of Fitzliardinge, Liangat-  tock, and Somerhill, the last being  the title under which the late Marquis of Clanricarde sat in the House  of Lords.

Hence, although rais'ed. lo that rank Six tijje  usually noted for his tact and charm  of manner, he let the kaiser see pretty plainly,that he saw through the  crafty game. He put the kaiser  where he belonged. - And the kaiser  never forgave him.  But at that time the late Lord  Twcedmouth was first lord of the  admiralty. And he either lacked  Lord Esher's sagacity or was more  amiable to the emperor's soft soap.  Anyhow, he was ill-advised enough  to a'llow himself to be drawn into a  conference with thc kaiser on naval  matters. ' This became . * noised  abroad, and Lord Tweedmouth was  popularly credited with something  like an act of treason. On the full  facts becoming known it appeared  that he had acted with the knowledge of his colleagues���������Sir Henry  Campbell-Bannerm'an was premier���������  in replying to the kaiser's letter,  and that lie had not (as was popularly supposed) prema'tuiely disclosed  the British naval, estimates to the  kaiser, to whom, in fact, he gave no  information which was not given to  parliament at the same time.

In this letter the kaiser venomously  seized on Lord Esher's capacity of  deputy constable of Windsor Castle  to build on it a deliberate insult to  the man who had snubbed him. He  expressed himself as being doubtful  "whether the supervision of the  foundations :.nd drains of the Royal  Palace is apt to qualify somebody  for the judgment of naval affairs in  general." It was rumored at the  time that it was through this gibe  at Lord Esher that the fact became  known to the public that Lord  Tweedmouth was corresponding with  the kaiser.

New Health Ideals  Need for -Preaching of the Gospel of  a  Sound  Body  Much interest has been aroused in  an address given before thc Winnipeg Ministerial association in Winnipeg by Dr. Stewart Fraser, chairman of the provincial board of health.  There were three essentials to good  citizenship, Dr. Fraser said, a good  body,***a good mind, and good moral  ideals.  Two out of lhe three requisites had1  been taken care of by the British  people and one essential neglected.  The same was true of the German  peoplesr They took care of and de-  \ eloped two sides of their character  and left out the third. The only  difference is the difference of selection as to what was  worth while.  "Thc_ schools are provided to lake  care ot tlie mental development,-the  moral ideals arc taken care of by  the ministers in the churches and  Suriday'schools, but there has been  no one here to preach the gospel ot  a sound body,"  Mr.   Fraser said.  The Germans, on tlie other hand,  he pointed out, took care of the body  first and foremost, and of the intellect, but they left out the moral  ideals, which, after all, was the quantity which made of the equation a  human one. A man.with only a sound  body to commend him was a brute.  A man with an intellect developed  purely as such was an iceberg, and  a man with high moral ideals and  highly developed intellect in an ill-  kept body was  only part efficient.  Stress was laid on the importance  of arousing public opinion to the fact  that the body as the home of ihe  intellect and the ideals must be  groomed, developed and cared for in  order to be a suitable vehicle. The  1-ody is thc jewel case which holds  the twin jewels of mind and ideals,  and it must be suitable or else they,  can only be "jewels in  the rough."  Dr. Eraser outlined the svstem being followed by thc provincial board  in sending nurses to the homes and  to the schools in order that the children may be readied and through  them thc mothers. Statistics were  not available for Manitoba so far, as  to death resulting from preventable  diseases but their number was ap-  paling. Dr. Eraser has no sympathy  with the old theory "of ills to which  the flesh is heir," but stales firiulv  that practically all the ills are preventable and that the human body  were it nol for man's improvidence,  "would run until worn out."���������Winnipeg Free  Press.

Saskatchewan Sells Livestock to Farmers on Credit  Three years ago the Saskatchewan  Legislature passed a law providing  for the expenditure of $500,000 in  purchasing livestock to be sold on  credit terms to farmers. Up to date  1,834 head of cattle, including 235  pure-bred bulls? havc_ already been  sold, as well as 5,275 sheep. The  classes of slock supplied consist of  pure-bred bujls of the right type and  of suitable age for breeding, grade  cows of popular breeds, pure-bred  boars and rams and grade sows and  ev/c's. The terms of payment are  that purchasers able to pay cash are  iec.uircd lo do so, and that all pur-'  chasers must pay al least 25 per cent,  cash. Unpaid balances arc payable  in one or two instalments, with interest at sit per cent. Up lo S400 worth  of stock can be bought by paying  one-quarter cash, and up to $1,000  worth can be bought by paying one-  half cash. All bona-fidc farmers in  Saskatchewan who are members of  ayy agricultural society, grain growers' asociatiou, or co-operative association arc eligible to thus receive as-,  sistance.

But she choked it back, and turned  her head away,  and  thc  faint  sound  of  the .boy's  high,  childish  treble as  it  came  to  her  across  the  meadows  as he shouted gleefully to his grandfather, only caused her to shrink into  herself  thc  more,  as. she    stifled  that heart-breaking question:  "What will become of them? Of  him?

What would happen now that she  had gone away? Would thc boy be  5-afc? Would Ciprian be left in  peace?  She could not but- think that even  Wright must pause before such  wholesale evil-doing as would be  necessary if he were to want to wipe  out both father and son. Even Lord  Moorhamplon's love of his case  would surely, yield to some stronger  emotion if any fresh attempt were  made upon  cither of them!  But then again, Mabin did not feel  sure.  What were thc obstacles lo the  wishes of Wright and Lady Moorhampton? Only a sick man, lying  helpless and for lhe most part alone,  un_blc to defend himself whose  death could easily pass for the natural result of his illness and the exposure he had suffered during' his  journey;  and a  child.  Wright, with his brains always  clouded, and his instincts inflamed  by indulgence, might be counted upon to make light oi" such opponents  as these!  Mabin spent all thc weary hour  of her journey lo London iu a state  of toriurc so keen thai .at last it  wore her out; and by lhe time she  drove up in a taxicab lo the gale of  the shut up maisonette, she had sunk  into a stale of apathy in which she  could scarcely feci anything more  than a dull sense of loss and misery.  Most forlorn' the lower part of lhe  house looked, ami when she had- ad-  milled herself by lhe little flat latchkey which she carried in her purse,  and lit a candle and looked around  at the covered up furniture, she  could have cried for very loneliness.  Mrs. Wrest was away at Brighton,  staying with her brother's family;  and''Mabin, who felt that even solitude was more bearable than her  mother's questionings, decided .not  to let her know that she had left  Heath Hill.,  Although they: were very fond of  each other, there were certain divergencies of opinion between mother  and daughter, and Mrs. Wrest would  never have found it in her heart to  believe that a woman of the rank of  Lady Moorhampton' could harbor  evil designs.. upon her husband's  grandchild.  /'���������So Mabin bore her solitude for a  few days, brooding over what had  passed and what might be happening  in the present, looking out eagerly  for thc postman, hoping against hope  that Airs. Lowndes would take, compassion upon her and write a lctter  to tell how things-were going on.  But. day after day- went by, and  still she had no news. Was it good  or bad, she wondered, this perpetual  silence?  Surely it must be for the best that  Sometimes thc longing to' know  what was happening grew so strong  that Mabin would write a letter to  Mrs. Lowndes, asking for information; she would even begin to compose one, sliffer in style and more  labored in expression, to Captain  Dalmaine.

If something  dreadful had happehe'd at Heath Hill,  she would liave seen some record or  some reference to it in the newspapers, which she bought in fear and  trembling every day.  And at last there, stole into her  unhappy heart thc conviction that  she "was making herself miserable  about nothing, that her coming away  was for the best, and that neither  Lady Moorhampton nor her brother  would dare to carry out their evil  wishes, after all "the warnings" they  had had.

Thc  House of Hohenzollern has a dark  record' of crimes- against the public  peace, against the rightst and the  freedom of other stales. It's plots arc  4oo deep, too farsccing, too dangerous to be longer put up with. It  sought to place a Hohe'hzollern upon  the throne of Spain; it did extend  its controlling influence to the  thrones of Greece, Bulgaria and Rou-  ' mania- The civilized and peaceful nations of the world have other and  more profitable occupations than  watching forever thc machinations of  thc Hohenzollcrns and guarding  themselves .against deadly perils from  that quarter. A'nd the immeasurable,  inexpiable will fervently hope, thc  last, imperial representative of thTit  house demands that thc doom de-  screed against Napoleon 102 years ago  be entered against him. The Hohen-  rollerns are outside civilization's pale.  ���������From the New York Times-  -.        \  No humbug!    Apply few drops  then "just life them away  with fingers.  - This new drug is an ether compound discovered by a Cincinnati  chemist. It is called free-  zone, and can now be .obtained in tiny bottles as  here <shown at very little  co&t~frorn any drug store.  Just ask for frcczone.  Apply a drop or two directly upon a tender corn  or*~ callus and instantly  the soreness disappears.  Shortly you will find the  corn or callus so loose  that you can lift it off,  root and all, with the  fingers.  Not a twinge of pain,  soreness or irritation; not  even thc slightest smarting, either when applying  freezone  or afterwards-  This drug doesn't eat  up the corn or callus, but  shrivels them so they  loosen and come right  out. It is no humbug 1 It  works like a charm. For  a few cents, you can get  rid of every hard corn,  soft corn or corn between4he toes,  as well as painful calluses on bottom  of your feet. It never disappoints  and never burns, bites or inflames.  If your druggist hasn't any freezone  yet, tell him to get a little bottle for  you from his wholesale house-  Lloyd George Speaks of the Dawning  of a New Era  --When the smoke of this great conflict has been dissolved in the atmos  phere we breathe there will reappear  a new Britain.

Keeping Eggs Fresh  Merchants Should Keep Eggs Out of  Store Windows  It is a common practice at this  season of_ thc year for many retailers  to advertise the increasing egg supply and the rapidly falling prices by  displaying piles of eggs in their store  windows. Eggs thus exposed in  many cases come under thc direct  rays of the sun and are subjected to  a temperature behind the plate glass  window of about 100 degrees- The  excessive heat* resulting causes serious deterioration through evaporation accompanied by loss of flavor.  Further, at- this time of thc year a  large percentage of thc eggs marketed arc fertilized, and as it is common knowledge that a tcinpcraturc of  70 degrees is sufficient to start incubation, the possibility of serious deterioration will readily be seen.  It is good business to. advertise, but  window displays of eggs defeat "the  aim of the advertiser, in that the resulting deterioration of the eggs  causes dissatisfaction among consumers, and so retards consumption.  Eggs should be kept in the cleanest,  coolest, driest place in the store, removed from mustincss, foul odors or  other sources of contamination.  Canadian Troops Have New Huts  A recent invention adding to the  comfort of the British and Canadian  field forces at the front in France is  described in a despatch received from  London. It is known as the "Nissen  Hut," a semi-circular shelter with  the appearance of a gigantic bit of  stovepipe half buried inthe earth .and  containing doors and windows; There  is room for twenty-five men in each.  A thousand of these huts are under  order- The convenience of transportation and the speed with which they  can be erected enable those hitherto  forced to sleep in thc open during  an advance to obtain shelter.  Already the hut is 'he subject of  an army song "Put me in my little  Nissen bed." *  vAn Oil Without Alcohol.���������Some  cils and many medicines have alcohol  as a prominent ingredient. A. judicious mingling of six essential oils  compose the famous Dr. Thomas'  Electric Oil, and there is no -alcohol  in it, so that its effects^ are lasting.  There is no medicinal oil compounded that can equal this oil in its preventive and healing power-  She is a wise woman who has her  way while" her husband believes he is  boss. ���������   "' v  I was cured of Acute Bronchitis by  MINARD'S  LINIMENT.

With  conscription  many regulations for  the safeguarding of Canadian interests  will be put in force by the government.  The government should send  all subjects of allied nations, fit  for service, home to fight under  their own flag.
