The Trail Creek News says  a good many people are clamoring for "land for the soldier,"  when ninety per cent  of them  do not want land.    They would  like,    though,   to   resume   life  about where they  left off when  they enlisted.    If you   wish to  help  the  returned   soldier, dispense with  the services of the  yellows, blacks, browns and the  riff-raff and bobtailed of Asia  and Europe.   Make Canada an  English-speaking country-- absolutely.  The Gazette des Ardenes says  that German is. becoming a.  more and more "popular tongue"  in the occupied districts.

Mr. and Mrs. Sampson wish  to thank all friends for the  kindness and courtesy shown  them during their long residence at the Nickel Plate mine.  In future mine developement  at the Nickel Plate will be under the direct superintendence  of B. W. Knowles, M. E., with  L. S. Morrison and W. Trezona  as assistants.'  E. McClure went to Oroville  Friday last for surgical treatment. It will be a couvplo of  weeks before he has fully recovered from a minor operation by Dr. Lewis.  Mrs.   W.  A.   McLean  died in  hospital  at  Vancouver   Satur-  morning,  26th   hist.    She*   had  undergone an  operation about  a week  before.   Deceased was  born at Vankleek Hill, Ontario,  about   55 years ago, . and   the  family     moved    to    Manitoba  in the early 80s, where  she was  married.    She had  beon a resident of Hediey for about twelve  years    and   had   many   warm  friends here.    Her husband, W.  A. McLean, a daugator, Mrs. L.  G.

We do not know  the   ornithologists' names   for  for many  of\ them.    All  were  very    iudustribus.     Some confined their investigations \to the  trunks of the trees and others'  under. and  over  thcleaves, all  the time keeping up'a ehit,-.chat,  'tec, tic. "In at-snort time  they  had passed on-going north.    If  we owned an orchard we would  offer    inducements    to    those  gabby   little   fellows   to   hang  around    and   continue  investigations during the summer.  For over two years  the people of this district were without  a dentist and had   to go to Oroville,  Spokane   or  some   other  place to have dontal work done,  entailing a heavy expense.  The  people  here   repeatedly   asked  the paper "to    advertise for  a  dentist    to    make    occasional  visits  here,    AVe  wrote to the  Oroville   dentists   to" try   and  make  arrangements with   the  Dental- Society for permits to  make  occasional   visits   to this  district,   knowing  that   graduates of U.  S.  colleges   wore at  least equal to  any in the world  in dental work.    Dr.  Robinson  at once made application to the  Dental  Society  to take tlie examination, aud announced dates  for  consultation   in   Princeton  and  Hediey   through the local  papers, doubtless expecting the  same    courtesies    extended.-to  dentists from other parts of tlie  world.    Monday  he  received a  letter from Dr. .Jackson of-Merritt stating that if   ho were not  out of the country by Saturday.  26th hist., he would be arrested.  It is two years  since a  dentist  visited    Hediey,    Dr;   .'Jackson  being the  last  one.    How does  he   expect the  people  here ��������� to  get  treatment,  if  he, who  evidently considers this district a  pi-ivate  preserve, does not give  it to them ?���������' This month  a resident of Hediey went to  Harrison springs for treatment.    After'being  there for some time  he  consulted  a physician,.who  advised   him  to see   a  dentist.  Had Dr. Jackson  been  looking  after   his    preserve   the   man  might have,, been saved several  hundred dollars.    If the Dental  Society  cannot at  the present  time, owing  to  tho large number of their membersatthe front,  give the sei vice necessary, they  should  not place   obstacles   in  the  way  of   qualified   dentists  visiting and benefitting districts  not now served by  the society,  and wo believe Dr. Jackson will  take this  view  when  he  gives  parture of Mr. and Mrs. Sampson and wished them prosperity  in the future. Mr. Sampson  thanked them- for their kind  reminders of a very pleasant  period in his life,-and for their  kinder expressions of good will.  Mr. and Mrs. Sampson left on  Wednesday's train for Salt  JLake .City, Utah.  Must Stay ii*. Canada.  An order-in-council  has been  passed  in   Ottawa   prohibiting  the departurcfrom Canada without  permission of male citizens  between  the ages  of 18 and 15  years -has   been  issued  in   tha  form of a public proclamation.

It is provided that any person who shall aid, abet or advise, the commission of any offence against this regulation  shall be liable to. similar fine  and imprison merit,  What Germans Must Face.  The German does   not realize  the depth of wrathful   indignation    aroused    bv    his   crimes  against,     humanity.   -Imagine,  when  ponce   comes,   a   German  commercial    traveler   peddling'  his   goods   in   Lyons  and Glasgow ! The ghost of Nurse Cavcll ���������  and   the   wraiths   of  scores   of  young French   gyj-s   will   stand  at   liis  shoulder, and ��������� no decent  man will do   business with him.  Imagine the German clerk back  once more in London ! His very  presence would excite memories  of murdered   Belgians and submarine      assassinations.        He  would   be  a -pariah,  and if he  found an employer he would be  shunned   ami   condemned  as a  moral   leper.    For   a   hundred  years the name of German must  stink   in   the   nostrils   of   humanity.    This is deplorable.    It  will  certainly  add  to tho difficulties of the future.    It is none  tho  loss  the  inevitable   consequence of ruthless crimes which  have  no  parallel in the history  of the world.���������London-Express.

They mean greater safety  in the Home!  Perhaps you have noticed  these words on our new  "SILENT PARLOR"  match boxes. The splints  of all matches contained  x in these boxes have been  soaked in a solution which  renders them dead wood,  once they have been lighted and blown out, thereby  reducing the danger of  FIRE from glowing  matches' to the greatest  minimum. . ' ,' ���������  Safety First and Always���������  USE EDDY'S SILENT "5V*  A Nice German Prisoner  TheycSeem to Be Docile Enough in  Captivity  When the German prisoners first  come in they appear frightened and  discontented," but after a few days  they seem to be happy and cheerful,  writes an officer. Their discipline is  such that they are under a surveillance almost: nominal and work -well  Under the direction of their non-commissioned* officer. At the sight of a  French or British officer they stiffen  up and salute in proper fashion,  snowing the same deference as toward their own officers, and indicating the complete discipline of the  Teutonic nation. There is a docility  about these prisoners that is almost  pathetic, and it seems to please the  easy-going Tommy Atkins, who  shows only kindly feeling toward  them, for he is constantly stopping  when not on duty to g-ivc-thcni tobacco or other good'things. One  simple-minded Tommy, after a desperate, struggle in the trench with a  huge German, whose face was considerably damaged hy fist and bayonet,'* brought his prisoner in and  calmly requested that he be allowed  to keep him with him because he  seemed to be a nice fellow.  A Tonic Medicine Is a Necessity at  This Season  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale  People arc an all year round tonic,  blood-builder and nerve-restorer- But  they are especially valuable in the  spring, when the system is loaded  with impurities as a result of thc indoor life of the winter months. There  is no other season when the blood is  so^ much in need of purifying and en-  ���������riching, and every dose of- these pills  helps to make new, rich, red blood.  In the spring one feels weak and  tired���������Dr. Williams' Pink Pills give  strength. In the spring the appetite  is often poor���������Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills develop the appetite, tone thc  stomach and aid weak digestion. It  is in the spring that poisons in- thc  blood find an outlet in disfiguring  pimples, eruptions and boils���������Dr.  Williams'- Pink Pills speedily clear  thc skin because they go to the root  of the trouble in the blood. In the  spring anaemia, rheumatism, indigestion, ncuralglia, erysipelas and many  other troubles are most persistent  because of poor, weak blood, and it is  at this time when all nature takes  on new life that the blood most seriously needs attention. Some people  dose themselves with purgatives at  this season, but these only further  weaken themselves. A purgative  merely gallops through the system,  emptying thc bowels, but it does not  cure anything. On the other hand  Dr. Wiliams' Pink Pills actually  make new blood which reaches every  nerve and organ in the body; bringing new strength, new health and  vigor to weak, easily tired men, wo-'  men and children. Try Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills this spring���������they will not  disappoint you.

Royalties are, very much like othei  folks. They can even be moderately  bright at times. The Czar said when  proposing, "The Emperor, my father,  has commanded me to offer you my  hand and heart."

The  apparatus is usually placed on the  roof or in a similar exposed location.  The rays of the sun heat the water  in the pipe and thus set up a circulation that carries the water to a  storage tank, from which it isMrawn  for household: usage.. The storage  lank is so thoroughly insulated that  the loss of; temperature during the  night is usually not more than four  or five degrees.

That    was    because      these  \Fiench  villages  have  endured    him  dreds of years; they are built solidly  of brick and    stone,    and    ordinary-  burning does not level them to    the  ground .as  would  be    the���������  case    of  American villages, of frame   houses,  or  as   thc  case-of  French    villages  after artillery    bombardment.       But  ���������   when we rode through the deserted  and silent    streets    wc    saw    what  ghastly hand had. been at work. Thc  walls of the houses were only shells  '  concealing charred ruins.     Not only  one village is like that, nor a dozen,  but every single one of the hundreds  that have been liberated has been put  to fire and sword, old men,\oId wo-  nien, cripples, left to await the arrival of their own soldiers lo care for  ' them; their ablebodied men taken into bondage months ago,^ their young  women and girls herded along    with  thc retreating army to a slavery no  one dares think.about without seeing  red.    And at every village-the same  ' message  was  left    behind    for    the  French   soldiers   when   they  arrived.  1 '"o   *-   '.translated it reads like this:  "You sec what we have done  here. Well, this is what is going to  happen all the way back to the  French frontier."  Is it any wonder that thc French  soldier telling mc this said between  clenched teeth:  "There is only one answer to that,'  my friend. Let them get down on  -their knees and pray when the  French army . crosses .. the Rhine,  .Wc will be taking no'prisoners, on  that day."  The aspect of the villages is sad  enough, but the countryside v is  worse*. I have seen so much of artillery destruction during this war  that I confess I have bc.cn rather  sated with ruins. A destroyed  church, a house ripped clean to its  foundations, is only another example  of what I have seen dozens of times  before. Btit a countryside that has  so little left of it as that one I passed through is a sight that made "me,  want to cry and fight at the sanie  time. It; has already, been reported  how orchards have been destroyed.  I rather' expected ��������� that this, had happened just along the roads by which  the army retreated... But with field  glasses I could, see far in on every  tide of every road for miles and  miles;  every farm is burned,, fields  |9fl_t   _ffUa*i   jPBHH[������  Bffl  BRfflfH  BlTlfll  Tr���������  . of Everything  goes into the making of  bush uprooted", every tree sawed off  close to thc bottom. It was a terrible sight and seemed almost worse  than the destruction of men-r # Those  thousands of trees prone upon the  earth, their branches waving in the  wind, seemed undergoing death agonies before our  eyes.  Everything gave its share to the  blood lust of -hate. Churches gave  their organs for their copper, also  the brass walls of'their altars, even  crucifixes upon ruined walls were  stripped down and torn asunder.  Wc passed through the remnant of  a place called * Porquericourt. An  old woman came to a broken doorway. Wc stopped to talk with her.  Phe smiled at the sight of the French  uniforms of our officers. She lived on  a farm a mile away. The Germans,  had passed in the night and burned  it so that she-had,come to Porquericourt to hide ijj/the cellar of a  friend. Her husband and brother,  both old men, had been killed by the  Germans during the retreat, her two  sons led off to slavery thc year before. One of them had come back,  but had been seized again only a few  weeks before.  Her three daughters had been with  her ,arT the farm the night that    the  Germans retreated    They had fled  with her to the house of her friend,  fiom where they saw their own home  of a lifetime in flames. The girls  were 19, 21-and 24 years old. The  Germans had found them in Porquericourt and had taken them away:  That was eight days before. She  had heard nothing of them since. All  other young women, had-likewise  vanished that night when the Germans went away. .-���������'_���������  She told her<story simply in a low  unfaltering^voicc. But she shuddered^ as she spoke of her daughters. I  said to her:  "The next day after the Germans  had gone, how did >it seem to see  *Frcnch soldiers appear?"

China has shown itself  worthy of the distinction of being the  oldest civilization in existence. It  has set every' Occidental country an  example by abolishing the source of  much of its misery, degradation and  weakness, for after March 31 the  opium traffic ceased altogether. A  vice that has held tens of millions  in its clutches is being exterminated.  ,. European and American investigators differ iu opinion as to whether  the ravages ���������of opium are worse than!  those of alcohol, but agree that tliej  use of the Eastern drug is a* more  insidious habit than liquor drinking  and harder to stamp out. Mcircover,  the percentage of high Chinese officials who were at one tinoe slaves  to opium was far higher than thc  proportion which alcohol could claim  among thc administrators and "civil  servants of western countries, and  repressive measures-.adopted by the  government have in all cases been  hampered by influential personal inclination such as would not be met  with elsewhere. Ridding thc .Celestial'--Empire of its favorite vice has  therefore been a stupendous task,  greater and jnore wonderful even  than Russia's abolition of vodka; but  it has been accomplished after ten  years' of well planned work of a  thorough common-sense kind, to" the  incalculable -benefit and everlasting  credit of a gifted people.

As  it  Palestine, where a British force is  operating now, has an area of but little over half    that    of Nova Scotia,  though  it  requires  a  cold    imagination  to   speak of  thc   Holy  Land  in  thc blank terms of geography.    The  district   took  its   present  name,   supplanting that of Canaan, from its division   as   Syria   Philistina.   Roughly  it is today the  territory claimed  as  the inheritance of the Hebrews prior  to  the exile.     One authority    states  that  '.'notwithstanding its  small  size,  Palestine  presents  a  variety of  geographic details  so  unusual as  to  be  in  itself sufficient  to  mark it out as  a 'country of  especial  interest.     Thc  bordering regions, moreover, are    as  varying as  the country itself���������sea to  the  west,  a mountainous  and  sandy  desert   to   the   south,   a   lofty  sieppc  plateau   to   the   east   and   the     great  i masses  of  Lebanon  to  the  north."  For  centuries   Palestine    has    belonged   to  Turkey  and  * thc    Turks  have  divided  it  into   three    vilayets  and^sanjacs.      The    population,    of  Christian   S3rrians  and  a   medley    of  all  Eastern religions,  is  estimated at  about one million.    The land lies between  Mesopotamia and  Egypt,  two  of  the   earliest   seats   of    civilization  which have come into a strange cycle  of prominence  again.     Palestine  lias   been   the  battlefield   of -Oriental  peoples   ft;om   the   dawn   ot^ history.  Jn this it is like little Belgium,    the  "cockpit   of   Europe,"   and   the   association   of  the   two   lands   just    now  does   not   call  for   thc    exercise     of  much   thought:  U1C3-    are    evermore  linked in historic sufferings.

Thc geology of the country has  been studied in some detail. As every  Bible student knows, its most remarkable feature is the Dead Sea,  fed by the Jordan, which itself runs  ed of the English Jews. A suzer<  cignty under- Britain has been mentioned, but not officially, as soon as  thc Turks are ousted. There must  bc_ everywhere among good, clean-  living men and women, recognizanfc  of what the world owes Israelism,  and ��������� possibly even in Germany, a  feeling that the Turk is not the  rightful-ruler there. International  control has also been suggested. Tho  future only can determine.

Wc were now living on borrowed  money, but ihis money would liavi  lo be paid hack, and at the close of'  tin- iiar a sudden change would lake  place.'  .Aiming the problem'- that will confront Canada al the close of the war  will be that ol" redistribution of labor  caused by soldiers coming back and  seeking new and old occupations. The  nation will owe a living to those men  who have been disabled "at the front.  Productive industry will have to be  ic-orled to to pay back Canada's  debt.  The price o\ wheat will go down  villi a rush after the war and Russia's wheat now bottled up will flood  tlie world. Canada's methods of  farming arc now being studied by  kussia. She can place her wheat on  the Liverpool market at front 25 to  WO cents lower than Canada can owing to cheaper freight rates and labor. In ten years from now' Canadian growers will hardly be able to  make wheat pay owing lo competition   with   Russia and   India.  Thc professor predicts a financial  collapse after the war aud claims  Canada cannot maintain her present  prosperity.

Building Cargo  Carriers in Britain  i'he  Need fc  or New Cargo Ships Is  Very Great  There is reported from day to day  the losses in mercantile tonnage from  the operations of the submarine, but  not a word reaches us about tho setoff to this destruction; the constat-1  additions to Great Britain's mercantile fleet from the yards in every  CvMUre of shipbuilding' activity. That  work along this line is being speeded up is shown by the following from  a recent issue of the London Times:  "It is understood  that in a number  of  shipyards  wl-crc   high-class  liners  had been laid down inslructionsliavc  now been given for  work to be suspended and labor to  be-divcrted    to  the. construction of plain  cargo    carriers.. ^ However naturally disappointing .tins maybe at thc moment      to  liner companies requiring    to replenish   tlieir -fleets,  (he  decision  is    certain  to  be  really approved   by them  and   by  the  general   public.     If    the  tlaily toll of losses teaches one lessor,  clearly,  it  is  that  the  need   for new  cargo ships is very great.    The shipbuilding resources of the country are  enormous, and once they are properly  mobilized    for    mercantile    work,  as  they are now al last "being organised,  lhe   new    production    within  a    few  months should prove absolutely, irre-  sistible.    But this result is nol-to be-  achieved  without immense effort and  a certain amount of interference with  private plans.    The vessels which are  now being laid flown will undoubtedly  ! be   thoroughly   serviceable     in   many  trades, and once the war is. won British  builders  will    again    be  able - to  show that they lead the world in lho  construction  of    the  finest    class  of  mail and passenger liners".

Bear in  mind  that  every increase in tlie, number of millionaires   means  diminishing   opportunity  for  the   many  to    accumulate.       The  manner  in  which     millionaires    have  been and arc being made in the United Stales-is not by and through    the  creation of wealth but by the absorption  of  wealth created by. the many.

Martin  Burri'U,  minister of  agriculture,  said  that : the  question ' was  a   bigger  one  than   the    ordinary    man       believed.  J hrec_ successive    governments    and  three*" successive    parliaments      had;  gone   on  record  as  against  oleomargarine.  There were two sides to the qucs--  lion. Butter was high in price and  the importation of margarine might  afford relief. But were they aware  of die-importance of the indu.stry  which they wanted to protect?  ~"1 do not think its importation  would affect the price of butter now,"  said Hon. Mr. Burrell, "but in the  long run it would hurt the dairy industry." The dairy industry in this  country was, valued at $150,000,000  so that the question was important  as an economic factor. - The prohibition was put on in the belief that it  was supremely important to protect  the dairy industry.  The minister of agriculture pointed  out that for three years the western  provinces were importing butter, but  by 1915 the production in British  Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba had trebled, showing how the  industry   had  'developed.       t  Butter had not gone up so much  as other commodities, said the minister. He said that formerly Danish  butter went to Britain in a steady  supply. Since the wai there-had  been a greater demand for Canadian  butter and the-demand last year was  something like 11,000,000 pounds, the  largest since 1903. The importance  cf maintaining that steady supply was  obvious,'and was the biggest stimulant for promoting the manufacture  of butter in this country.  Oleomargarine, said Air. Burrell,  was imported into all other countries, including New Zealand, but in;  every country there was also excessive legislation_and fraud. The whole  effort of the margarine makers, he  feared, would be lo fraudulently sell  their product as butler.  The question would come up before parliament, he said, but sucha  change as suggested would be fraught  "with endless difficulties and a lot of  fiaud. He was not questioning the  wholcsonieness of oleomargarine and  no doubt il would afford relief at this  time. He quoted examples of fraud  in Quebec . which'had been followed  by prosecution1 and.conviction.  Never before had it beeii so important to have the people of Canada go  on the" land. Butter had gone up, it  was true, but that was offset by the  high prices .farmers .had to pay.'for  labor and  mill feed.   ' ������������������ ��������� .  "I am quite sure," said the minister, "rightly, or- wrongly, iliac- the  importation of margarine would be a  discouraging factor in the dairy industry. It is a question whether, it  is worth while "at this time to lift  the   prohibition.

These  words become as deeply graven upon  the hearts of British naval officcis as  iu the wall of their college. The men  brought up in U10 navy become truly  devoted to the service.

'   -  Germans in Russia  New  By   a  Russian   Official  in  the  York Outlook  Before   the   beginning  of    the war  there'was undoubtedly a very    great  German influence in Russia, and this  influence had been prepared not only  in court circles, but all over Russia.  It. was a regular organization, as has  now  been  found  out���������much  like  the  German propaganda in your country.  As a result of this widespread pro-  [ paganda before the war,    when    the  war  broke   out  there    were    various  other centres  in  Russia already prepared  to sympathize  with  Germany.  As far back as the time of Catherine  the Great there had been a large influx from Germany into Russia, making communities of Russian, subjects  and  Russian citizens  who were  even-  more pro-German  than  the  Germans  themselves in East Prussia. Although  they    were    Russian    citizens,    tliey  were, even up to the outbreak of the  war,   called   colonists,   and   their  language and customs were German.    It  was from that source that the greatest pressure came to make a separate  peace-      Moreover, the  German    spy  systeni       was       highly        organized  throughout Russia.  The Germans had foreseen everything, prepared everything, to get  Russia to sign a separate peace, but  one thing they had forgotten. They  j-had forgotten history. As long as  ��������� Germany was fighting on German or  Polish soil Russian national feeling  was not thoroughly aroused, but the  moment Ger-iuany put her foo: on  Russian soil, then the Russian people  rose unitedly.  While government loans to' farmers  for this-purpose have been a subject  of .discussion in all the prairie provinces, it has actually been put in  practice in British Columbia. Up lo  the end-of last October loans aggregating $234,430, and in number 144,  had been granted by the agriculaural  credits commission of that province.  In all 1041 applications for loans  were received, the amounts asked for  totalling $2,175,455.  The farmer applicant must meet  certain requirements before he is  granted a loan, appraisement of the  applicant's property being made in  [.each case, and many of thc applicants  have been unable to secure loans because they _did not come up to thc  standard set by the commission.  Early in 1916 the provincial government secured $1,000,000-which is being loaned out to farmers at the favorable rate of 6.5 per cent. Thc bulk  of. the loans made are fpr long terms,  the-longest period for which a loan  may be granted being thirty-six and  'one half years.  These long term loans may be  made on the amortization plan, inter,  est and principal being payable half  yearly. The short term loans may be'  made from, three to ten years, and  need not be amortizable. Borrowers  have the privilege of paying off in  addition to the regular half yearly  payments $25 or any multiple of $25  from lime to lime on any interest to  date, in the reduction of the mortgage. __     ��������� _  The commission has five appraisers  in, lhe field, and each application is  carefully dealt with.'" Two of the directors of the commission have spent  considerable lime In the field with'the  appraisers for the purpose, pf obtaining first hand~*information regarding  agricultural lands 'and '��������� conditions  throughout the province. The ap-  paisers send weekly reports, after  which the various .-. applications are  dealt with by the commission.  The policy of the commission, with  the limited amount of money at its  disposal, has been to give consideration to those applications where the  money is to be used for-purposes 'that  will tend definitely to increase agricultural production, and for this reason'many applications for smaller  sums have been granted, as in .this  way the money will be spread over  the province and also go considerably  ���������further-than if all the. loans granted  Were large ones.  Other provinces of Western Canada-have also under consideration various, plans for making capital easily  available to settlers. The-great need  of the province is recognized to be a  proper combination of farmers and  money. Every step in that direction  tends to increase agricultural production and the general prosperity of the  country.  medals were awarded lo Boy Scouts.  The awards during the past twelve  months were as follows: ��������� Bronze  Cross (for heroic acts) 2; Silver  Cross (for gallantry with risk) 16;  Medals for life saving 78; Silver Wolf  (special merit) 14; Medals of Alerit  65.  Much  attention  has  been  paid    to  public  services  lately and_JLlie    boys  have been encouraged by the offer of  the war service badges.  Fo: instance,  38,392    War    Service    Badges    were  awarded  to   Scouts  who    put  in    28  days' voluntary service in aid of war  causes, and 2,232 badges    to    Scouts  ���������who completed 100 days' service in a  similar way.    This war work includes  all kinds of public services  such    as  assisting the police and fire brigades;  etc.    Coast watching is another form  of. service which has grown in popularity among the Scouts of England.  The arrangement with  the admiralty  for the supply of Boy Scouts to assist  in coast watching still continues arid  numbers, varying from 1,300 to-1,800  have been  employed    in    this    way.  They have won the cordial appreciation  of  thc Admiral    in    charge    of  coastguards.     Badges   for    84    days'  coast watching were awarded to 2,208  Scouts.  Vocational training is receiving  merited consideration from the leading educationalists, not only in Canada, but throughout thc Allied countries. At this point mention may be  made of the 'training which Boy  Scouts receive,-leading up to this line  of endeavor in the technical, schools.  Badges ar.e awarded to Boy Scouts  who show proficiency to a certain  standard in the '.following, subjects:  Carpentry, Basket Making, Engineering, Plumbing, .Printing, and a number of other useful trades.  Thc^~Chicf Scout and founder of  the Boy Scouts .movement, Sir Robert Baden-Powell, is most anxious to  extend the development .of handicrafts among Scouts in all parts of  the Empire. Many boys through proficiency badges are enabled to discover for themselves tlieir inclinations and find vocations which appeal  to their natural abilities.  Government Control of the National  Sources of Wealth Is  Necessary  The experience of the Great  I teaches   as   its   clearest   lesson  national  efficiency in peace, ..no    n.s.-  , than iu war, depends directly on thc  wise common  control  of the natural  resources,  which  are   thc  basis  upon  which  all  human  welfare necessarily  rests.

Our natural  resources must be retained in national^ control.    We see now, more clearly  thaiT-cvcr, that  natural  resources  are  the foundations  of national  efficiency  and  defense-'   The   Great'   War    has  proved  definitely  that   coal,   oil,   timber,  and  other   resources   are  as   important  in  modern   warfare    as  men  and arms.    Water-power in particular  ought to be kept in the public hands,  because it is  a  vital  necessity .in  the  production   of   nitrates   and    .without  nitrates high   explosives    cannot    be  made.  In addition, wc know that if"there  is "an ecomonic war after^ the war,"  the national control of natural resources will be a fundamental essential lo this nation. Government control of the natural sources of wealth  is necessary if our nation is to be industrially efficient, if it is to be prepared either for war or for peace.

"Our second class timothy seed is  bringing the sainc rating in Chicago  as the native prime seed" of the United States," says Air. Brown 'in a  newspaper interview.  The superintendent said .that -this  was the first -year that grass-seed has  been grown in any quantity... in the  province. The encouragement by the  Dominion government to this industry during the past year or two is,  therefore, bearing fruit, said Mr.  Brown.

UMITED  Lawioa, Mcltnura:, ������ed ToMote  ,;His manner was nervous and his  glance  furtive, and  he had lost the  Sclf-c6nsciotts",smiik  wilh   which he  had received her before-  "I've come," she said gravely, "to  ask you some questions about Mr.  Ciprian Moorhampton, and the attack  which was made upon him here."  "Has he sent your" asked the clerk  quickly.  "I've come on his behalf," replied  Mabin, who saw the advantage she  bad got by accident in dealing with  this man-  He cast at, her an appealing glance.  "What I did was for thc best," he  said quickly. "Indeed it was- And  he's,all right now, isn't he? He's got  back to his father's house?"  Mabin was glad to be able to reply:  "Yes. I left him' there-"  At once the clerk was only tod  ready to tell her anything she wanted  to know, and she was satisfied ihat  she Would be able to get out of him  tlie information she lacked to bring  the crime home to Wright. '  "I want a talk with you," she said.  The clerk threw an anxious glance  at the door of the inner office-  " "Could you meet mc, miss, a*-  lunch-time," he said, "at thc A.B.C.  opposite, where I could tell you cv  erything?"      .  Mabin concealed the joy she felt  at his readiness to confess, and agreeing gravely to be at the shop he indicated, she went out, in a stale of  high excitement, to fill up thc time  until the hour he named.  When the clock struck one, she  was waiting, terribly anxious lest he  should fail her.  But within, a couple of minutes the  little ginger-haired 'man came in, and  finding her seated al a table as far as  possible from thc rest of the cutom-  ers, he. slipped into the opposite scat  and promptly began his confession  villi an alacrity vvhich showed- her  that he was eager to get it off his  mind or his conscience-  "you know,, miss," he began in  quite a plaintive tone, "that I did my  best for him, I really did. When I  found out he was hurt, 1_just helped  him away to the house of an_ aunt of  mine, who was once a professional  nurse, and there every care was taken   of hi-H,    Didn't he  tell'you that,  meeting which was arranged in thc  office of Air- Fryer, before it took  place.  "You knew who it was that was  going to meet Air. Moorhampton,"  she said with decision-  "Yes, miss. I don't deny thai," he  said. "But you can tell I didn t guess  he was going lo attack him, or I  shouldn't have been such a silly fool  as to show you into thc inner office  just when he was expected," he said.  This was doubtless true, and it disposed ,of any possible suspicion that  the clerk could have guessed what  was going to happen when thc two  men met.  "Oh, yes, of course I sec that,"  she said.  "I suppose you know, miss, that my  employer, Mr. Frver, is a half-broth-  ci- of Mr. Wright's-"  Mabin inclined her head in assent.  He went on: "When Mr. Fryer  told mc his brother would be coming  to meet another gentleman- before he  himself got back from Brighton, I  rever guessed anything serious was  going to come of it. If I had, I  shouldn't have let 3roti in-" -  .   Alabin remembered, however,    that  Counter Check  Or Sales Books  'Mr. Merchant:���������  If you are not already using our.

But-none of these efforts got as  far as the.post, and as day after d.iy  ��������� passed, and no news came, Mabin  told herself that she was foolish to  , care so much when apparently nobody else cared at all, and finally she  took a great resolution'  She would put an end to her suspense by taking a bold and most distasteful step: she would go to Air.  Fryer's office, and see the clerk. "'  Would she get any satisfaction  from this? She doubted it- It was  impossible to acquit'him of having  aided and abclfd the attack upon  Ciprian, to thc extent of having beor  prepared for it, and having taken active steps to keep the attack a secret  after its  commission.  Still, she felt that she might learn  something through this man, who  must, by this time, have got news of  Ciprian's whereabouts, even if he had  not known where he was going when  the sick man made his escape from'  his  mysterious  nurses.  At  any  rale,  Mabin  felt that    she  must   sc/;   someone   who   knew     Ciprian, must establish some connection  again with the people at Heath Hill,  and   this   seemed,   on  thc  whole,   (hoi  best way to do it-  She went to Air. Fryer's office early'  in the morning, and found the mean-  faced clerk silting on  his high   stool  in thc outer room, just as he had been  on  the occasion of her last visit-.  As she was prepared to expect, he  received her with a cotintenauc.r  which expressed anything but welcome. Slipping off his stool, he went  up  lo her quickly, and said:  "Good morning, miss. I'm glad to  sec you."  miss?    He ought to have told you-"  "If he.had been in the best hands,"  replied Mabin, evasively, "he wouldn't have got away, as he did, on the  first opportunity, would he?"  Thc man looked down, much troubled.  "Well, miss," he said at last rather  sullenly, "it was a very awkward^ situation for me, wasn't it? I didn't  know how I might be implicated,  though thc fault was none of mine,  miss, indeed." ��������� '       _.      -  She knew that he had acted a  double part throughout the business,  sitting on the fence and watching before making-Tip his mind which, side  to take, that of Ciprian, or that of his  assailant- If Ciprian liad died white,  in his aunt's hands, Alabin had little  cioubt' that he would have hastened to  Joe Wright, and claimed a recompense which would have been in the  nature of blackmail. If, on the othei  hand, the clerk had had any reason to  believe that Ciprian would be received with joy by his father, he would  have thrown over Wright, and woul 1  have gone to Heath Hill to tell Lord  Moorhampton' all he knew.   ,  It was only by inference that Mabin knew this, but her instinct was  strongly confirmed by his looks, his  tones and his "obsequious and cringing manners-  "You ought not to have lent yourself to il in the beginning," she said,  with decision.  He looked at her in surprise. But  he never doubted her, and it was  plain that he supposed she had been  informed of everything by Ciprian  himself.  '"You know, miss," he said iu a  pleading tone, "it's vcry_ difficult,  when you're in' somebody's employment, as I am, to do exactly what  you like."  Alabin made a bold plunge into  guess-work.

"I'm sure, miss, when I came 'back  to that office, and found you there,  and thc poor gentleman lying on thc  floor, you could .have knocked me  down with a feather."  "But you didn't go for the police,  though  you said you  did.    And  you  didn't go for a doctor cither,"  suggested Mabin drily-  He grew red and confused.  "Well, as I say, miss, I had to. consider  the  firm,   and   thc   scandal.     I  had, as  1 may saj-,  to  consider    the  best to do for everybody.    Including,  yourself, miss.    It's not a nice 'thing j  for a young lady to have to give evi-j  dence in a police court over a shady  ca?c," said he-  "Shady!" echoed Alabin.  "I  didn't  know  how  shady  it  was  till   afterwards,"   pleaded    thc.ch.-rk  "I   was  downright  frightened,   and   1  got  Air.   Fryer  himself  to  help   .me  carry thc poor gentleman down stairs  and I  told  him  I'd  take him   to   the  hospital.    Mr. Fryer made up a story  himself for me lo  tell, and gave  me  a name for him-    But what I did was  lo   take  him. straight  to  my    aunt's,  thinking it less  likely  to -made  talk,  miss."  Bui Alabin guessed that the cunning  clerk had wished to gain whatever  advantage was to be had from the  position of guarding of the injured  man, and thai this, and no other, was  the reason why Ciprian had be^n fak.  en to thc nurse's house, and not to  the  hospital.  "You knew who he was. Why didn't you inform Lord Aloorhainpton  that his son was lying ill at your  aunt's?"  He hesitated. The real reason he  dared not admit; he had, as Mabin  knew, been "sitting on the fence,"  waiting lo see whether it would pay  him best to pose.-as Ciprian's protector and guardian, or as the allv of  Wright-  "Well, you sec, miss," he said at  last, "I knew that Air. Wright is never sober and that" he must have done  this iu one of his mad fits. And as  he is Air.

Substantial Orders Have Been  ceived Here From New  Zealand  One of the war developments in  stimulating Canadian trade is seen  in the fact that Canadian-made, lead  pencils arc now being sold in New  Zealand. A. report received by the  trade and commerce department  from Canadian trade commissioner  Beddoe, of Auckland, says that a  Canadian firm recently sent out to  New Zealand samples of lead pencils, the first made in Canada following the stopping of the Austrian  supply. Mr. Beddoe says that thc  samples were found very satisfactory  and substantial orders have been sent  jto Canada. ������  He also notes that if Canadian  firms were not so busy with war  orders they could capture in New  Zealand a inueh greater proportion  of the business formerly enjoyed by  Germany.

"I suffered from Bright's Disease  for two years," Mr. Sullivan states in  an interview. "I was unable to work  for weeks at a time. I spent hundreds of dollars on doctors without  receiving rfhy real benefit and received outdoor treatment at the Montreal  General Hospital.  "I was fecling^vcry badly discouraged when a friend advised mc to try  Dodd's Kidney Pills..- After using  three boxes I was much better. I  kept on "till I had used nine boxes,  v.hen I was completely cured.  "Naturally I consider Dodd's Kidney Pills a wonderful remedy."  Dodd's Kidney Pills arc no cure-  all. They cure kidney diseases of all  kinds from backache to Bright's Disease. The proof of this is their  growing popularity in Canada for  over a quarter of a century.

Close Dartmoor Prison  Dartmoor prison, which is to be  closed as a convict prison and put to  other uses, was built during our last  great war as an internment camp for  -French prisoners, and opened in 1809.  For many years after the end of the  war and the release of the prisoners  Princetown, as the<prison is officially  called, remained vacant, until in 18*>5  it was first utilized as a convict prison, being one of the largest in thc  country, with accommodation for  r-early eight hundred prisoners. The  use to which it is now to be put has  not been disclosed but it would be  rather a coincidence if, after a complete century, it is to revert to its  original use as a barracks for prisoners of war.���������London Chronicle-  One of the commonest complaints  or infants is,worms, and the most effective application for them is Mother Graves' Worm Exterminator,  Sad Stories, Mostly  "He's  a great reader."

SOME of the coast papers hint  that Sir Kichard McBride will  again   become  "active  in   B.  C.  politics.    His many friends and  ���������idmirers  in  the  province will  be  sorry  to  learn that he will  not  be  able to   do   so,   as  his  physician    has    informed    him  that he has but a short time to  live. A few Liberal papers have  indulged in rather uncouth remarks in regard to his resignation, one going so far as to hint  that being only  a colonial he  was out of his  element  among  refined  cockneydom.    But that  is  the  opinion  of an "English  bounder" and  carries  as  much  weight in  the  Old  Country as  it does here. It is just the viewpoint of a "Little Englander,"  The loaders   of   Quebec arc  much    like    an    un licked   cub.  Before the conquest niiTcty-five  per cent of tho people of Quebec   were   little    better    than  slaves.    Since  then  they   have  been petted and  pampered and  spoiled by thc  conquering race  until they have come to believe  that the English-speaking people of Canada  were created to  be exploited.    They have tried,  and in some  places  have  been  successful, in having thc French  language taught in the schools  of the other provinces to the exclusion of English.    Their leaders are ~simply  trying  to  force  mediaeval conditions on Canada  in the  20th   century.    Liberals  and  Conservatives  arc equally  to blame for thc Quebec blot on  civilization.    The   people   have  been kept in ignorance in order  that their leaders could exploit  them  and  Canada.    Race hat-  trod has boon kept alive for political purposes.    If the French  Canadians had  been allowed to  enlist and   fight  side   by   side  with    Engish-speaking    Canadians, brave   men" would have  come to a bettor understanding  of each Qther-and  race  prejudices would  disappear.    This is  just what the leaders of Quebec  do not want, for  they  live by  fostering    race    hatred.      One  hundred   thousand   French-Canadian troops on  the Western  front Avould have  resulted   in  the disappearance  of  race hatred, the ���������modernizing of Quebec  and   a  united  Canada   for all  time.    It is  not too late yet, if  Sir    Robert- Borden    has   the  back-bone. If  he hasn't, he will  go down in  history as one who  failed in hisduty to Canada and  the empire.   As for Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, he "will  have to decide  whether he is Canadian or Quebec.    He  is playing for a high  stake, the loyal support or contempt of tho English-speaking-  Liberals.

The  Macdonalds   wore  always a turbulent and migratory people,  especially when in  the neighborhood of the Campbells.   It is said they discovered  Scotland,    coming    over   from  Ireland expressly for that purpose,  and  incidentally carving  a  few Campbells. ��������� They established a ���������flourishing" cattle-shipping   trade   between   Scotland  and Ireland; and  also founded  the O'Donnells.    The aneesters  of the Macdonalds  were walking ou their hind legs when the  ancestors of European loyalty  were swinging by their tails on  tho limbs of trees in the Black  Forest.    The family is old, well-  established   and  anti-Campbell  but with a colonial taint.   The  Wades are of an old Ontario  family, but colonial.

Where else in the whole  British Empire but the Province  of-Quebec could there be found  a  large  number of able-bodied  men   holding   public   meetings  protesting against military .services and making speeches that  border ou sedition.    Half of thc  population of Quebec is disloyal  and compulsory enlistment will  be  doing a great ..service if it  brings  home  to  the  Canadian'  people the true" situation of affairs in  that Province.    7n the  meantime   the   people   of   tho  Empire arc patiently waiting a  pronouncement  by  Sir Wilfrid  Laurier on  the  subject  of conscription.   If  Quebec   had   not  held   back   there   would   have  been no call for compulsory service.    Very many have felt that  if the  eligible  men of Quebec  had come forward and assumed  their full share of responsibility  to the Empire they would have  enlisted, but did not consider it  right that one   province, should  have  been  permitted  to stand  idly  by  in   the   hour  of   their  country's need.���������Tho Ladysmith  Chronicle.
