The regular monthly meeting  of the  women's Institute  was  held last Thursday at thc Institute rooms with a7r   attendance  of thirty-eight members.    As it  was   election    day   it   almost  looked as if votes  for women  were already in vogue.   The report given  by the  delegate to  the conference was  very interesting and enjoyed by all.    The  Institute is again giving donations  to  patriotic  work as follows: fifty dollars  to prisoners  of war, and have started  with  $25, a   fund for returned  and  disabled soldiers, and also sending for more material for garments for Red -Cross  purposes.

I had met  him  before,  and   after  telling  him the  story  of  the  metal  I  had discovered, he said he would  stake his reputation that it was  one of the very rare metals and  J worth   teiwthousand  dollars a  pound.    I had cut  out  a  piece  of about half a   pound,  but on  our return trip to  Hope the. Indian lost it, and although I have  been back there seven different  times  1  have  never   yet  beeu  able to get any more of it," as it  has to be workod at   the lowest  stage of water, und I expect to  work  it  in  company   with Seattle   people   and  I   will  take  charge of the men myself.    We  alHO staked and recorded my old  mine,   better    known    as    tho  "Stevenson Lost Mine," although  it was never lost to me.    It was  in 1S77 that I discovered   it and  the  first assay;   I had made in  the    government   assay   ofiice5  Victoria, gave $19694: to the ton  and a box of ore. I sent  to  San  Francisco wont, $13200, and for  ���������-.ix other assays all  went  high  in the thousands.    It's telluride  ore  and  is'chiefly   in gold, but  the government would   not assist me .in  any   way  nor  build  any trails, so   I'allowed people  to   think   for    nearly     twenty  years that it  was  lost and that  is why it'is  still  known   as the  Lost'Stevenson  Mine.    It  was  tlie first quartz  claim   recorded  in   Yale   district,   for   William  Tague,   the government  agent  at-that time, had  to get a new  book of records and  in it made  the  first  record.    This   was  39  years ago,    I think that myself  and  Seattle friends  will go on  and   open  it   up.    It  is  about  forty miles from Princeton in a  straight line and  On   the   big  plateau.     . .  "I took in the Spokane people  and we started the big dyke.

Last week we had a visit from  the -yetemn explorer, prospector and mining man, Colonel  Robert Stevenson, who owns  mining properties on the Nickel  Plate 'mountain, and in many  parts of the district.

Real estate sharks  might swarm in from the coast  and stake the  whole  bally plateau.    In  so   rich   a  district  it  is good policy to locate sufficient  land on which to  conduct mining  operations  witheut crowding.    Mr.  Stevenson  should go .  into the district and locate land  and water rights, and then.let"  the real-estaters and land-grabbers do their worst.���������Ed.]  Mrs. C. P.

Tlie Department of Agriculture for  Alberta lias issued a bulletin on timolliy seed production that appears  timely. It gives the market demands,  extent of consumption, sources of  production and information with regard **to soil preparation, seeding  harvesting, threshing and marketing.  '1 he gist of the bulletin, however,  is the emphasis il puts on ihc opportunity for the western seed-grower.  Canada requires 600,000 or 700,000  bushels, and* imports two-thirds of  ^tIiis from "the States, where it is  grown,in $100 or $150 lands aud pays  a seventeen and a half per cent, war  tariff. Why not produce il at home,  on cheap lands for an open or even  protected market and of a quality  that itself can defeat competition?  The Alberta kernel is very plump,  bright and attractive.  In  relation  to  the  gener  farm  seed   production  in Alberta  the  bulletin  contains  the  following interest ing* paragraph:  "Independent of local or temporary conditions which favor the production of seed "there arc general and  fundamental reasons why the special  work of seed production over the  whole scries of field crops should  become thoroughly established^ in  the province. Tl is a recognized  principle in seed production that lhc  farther north a crop can bc made to  grow bountifully and mature satisfactorily the better constiliilioned thc  seed is. This has already been demonstrated in Western Canada with  lespect to thc cereals.

Thc  first of these Companies lcfl for England   in   .May,     1915,  and  since    that  time five Companies in all have been  recruited     up   lo   strength    and   sent  forward    to     England    for      further  training, and arc now with thc Princess  Pats at  the front.  These have been exceptional companies in "many ways. High authorities regarded thc first Universities  Company as one of the best trained  units that has lcfl Canada. The companies that followed also maintained  that high standard, so that thc Universities Companies became well  known and respected throughout the  camps in England. When a draft is  needed for the P.P.C.L.I., the officers  il work of'0^ l**'lt- regiment arc always glad to  know that there arc men of thc Universities Companies waiting in England   for  their  turn  to,cross  over  One remarkable feature of their  splendid standard of training is that  Ihcy proceeded overseas and got to  the front more quickly perhaps than  any other unit. Thc first two companies were in France in less than  two months after leaving Canada.  jTlic convpanics that followed got  i over just as quickly. The second  company started recruiting on May  1st, 1916, and was in France August  23 rd,  1916.  The men of these companies have  not necessarily been University nicn  or graduates, but rather men of that  type, such as bank clerks, business  men, architects, and so forth. The  standard of men largely accounts for  thc fact that they have not required  the long* and tedious training essentia!  to  other units.

Philip Gibbs, of thc London Daily  Chronicle, writing from thc British  front after the smashing of the Prussian Guards, said: A large number of  prisoners were taken, and they came  straggling back over the battlefield in  miserable little groups. Some of  them carried our wounded on  stretchers or on their backs, and our  men  carried their wounded.  They were the remnants of thc  third Prussian Guards division, which  had been so utterly broken that it  no longer 'exists as a fighting unit.  Those who did not fall into our hands  have been withdrawn from the line.  The morale of I he men, as well as  thc fighting force, has been smashed.  Even thc officers admit that. They  have no more stomach for the fight,  and several, men with whom I spoke  today were frank in saying they were-'  glad to bc prisoners, to be safe, at  last, from thc frighlfulncss of this  war. Some of them told mc that liter leaving Valenciennes a Sew days  ago after our attack started they  were brought to Cambrai, and while  lhc officers were sent on by motorcycle they marched a-long distance  through an unknown country to thc  front. They did not know the names  of thc villages they passed. Their  officers had no maps, and they had  an ominous feeling that they were  going to their doom, but the strength  of our artillery and its deadly accuracy of aim surprised them. They did  not know thc English had such gunners.  Still more were they surprised by  thc dash of our infantry, as they  heard they had against them the men  of the new army. Thc Prussian  prisoners belonged chiefly to thc  Lchr Grenadiers and Fusiliers, thc  All   Guards  division,  the  70th Jaeger  Farming by Reflection  of  The Man Who    Hustles Instead  Dreaming  Is  the  One  Who  Usually Succeeds.  Every section has its easy-chair  farmers who think they arc philosophers. They arc great on thc phrase  "Know thyself!" and they waste  hours meditating on their mental and  moral-insides under thc delusion that  they arc finding out about themselves  and adding to the sum of human understanding.  That phrase "Know thyself" goes  back to the heathen gods; it was .n-  scribed in gold letlcrs over thc portico of the temple at Delphi. But it  is about as easy to know yourself  from studying yourself as it is to lift  yourself over a rail fence by your  own bootstraps.  There's Brown, a farmer of broad  reading and high intelligence, a deep  thinker, who studies it all out and  cogitates, but somehow or other  doesn't get results and doesn't get  ahead.' There's White, who has limited education and who never bothers about knowing himself, but who  gels into action thc minute hc opens  his eyes and keeps going until hc finishes his day, and somehow hc moves  into a sense of power and ^self-reli-  ance and success that nobody can  doubt.  Farming by reflection is about as  useful as trying to grow crops by last  'night's sunset.

Teaching a Boy to Swim  What  to  Do  and  What   Not  to  Do  to Establish  Confidence in *  the Beginner.  There is a prevailing notion, especially among a certain type of fathers, that the* surest and quickest  way to teach a boy to swim is to  "throw him in over his head and let  him . 'go to it.' " Probably a surer  way to destroy a boy's confidence  in the water has ncverr"bccn devised.  Thousands of boys arc thrown in the  water without knowing how to swim,  and have conceived a fear of thc water by this foolhardy method "that  nothing has ever been able to remove. No confidence is ever secured by a violent introduction, and the  father who thinks along this line of  teaching his boy to swim is making  a fundamental mistake which he and  his boy will regret for years to come.  The wise father or teacher of swimming is hc who wins his bey's confidence by first getting him accustomed to thc water in"shallow places, and  then gradually have thc boy come to  him in deeper and deeper- water"tun-  til the young swimmer hardly knows  when hc has ventured beyond his  depth. This is not the "sissy" method of teaching boys how to swim,  as some' fathers like to think; it is  thc only normal and sane way. It is  the father without a knowledge of  human nature who decides otherwise. ���������' From thc Ladies' Home  Journal.

Russia's Food Supply  Special Bureaus Established for Distribution  of  Foodstuffs        '  The Czar has appointed a special  commission to relieve thc. distress  among the poorer classes in the large  cities and industrial centres. With  the aid of experts furnished by thc  Department of thc Interior and the  railway ministry the commission is  to organize the distribution of food  on an efficient basis. Thc commission has sweeping powers and* may  cause the arrest of all Speculators  cornering supplies to drive the prices  up still further. All foodstuffs in  the hands of speculators are to be  confiscated and paid for at the market value.

For  the" transportation of 'the supplies a  special railroad service is to be organized. Over three hundred freight  trains arc to bc run to Moscow, Pet-  rograd, Kieff and other cities daily  from Odessa and Siberia. For the  distribution of the foodstuffs special  bureaus are established in all cities  and larger towns. The heads .of  these bureaus will bc directly responsible to thc Ministry of thc Interior  for thc equal distribution of all  grain, meats, etc., at "the prices fixed  by the Government. All sugar factories and canning establishments  are-brought under thc control of the  Government. The sugar manufacturers have* been requested' to give  estimates of their possible iriaximuni  production and lo place .all of their  stocks on ha^cl at the disposal of  the Government.  Sermon by Kaiser on  Reliance of God  Practical  Christianity and   Harmony  With Personality  of Lord  Needed  Thc speech which the German Emperor recently made to a gathering  of army ��������� chaplains at main headquarters is reported in the Vossische  Zcitung by Chaplain Doctor Ott.  "It is a time of sifting," said the  Emperor. " "The world is separating  the chaff from thc wheat. You gentlemen have the task of teaching the  German nation to take things seriously and to accept the present as a  lime of trial. It is important to understand that life is a trial. We need  practical Christianity to bring our  lives into harmony with thc personality of our Lord. We must live  simply according to His acts and  deeds.  "Gentlemen, how* fascinating and  marvellously manifold is His personality. Wc must study it thoroughly;  we .must live with  the Lord.

The problem of dry farming with  which our western farmers arc.struggling was faced also by the ancient  Romans and handled by them in a  manner from which wc modems can  borrow many a suggestion.. .When  the French look control of Tunis  they found established there a legacy from the Roman colonists of old,  a system of dry farming as perfect  as anything achieved by modern experiments in AusLralia, South Africa  and our own West.' Professor J.  Russell Smith, of the University of  Pennsylvania, has made a first hand  investigation of this remarkable  archaeological puzzle, which " he 'describes in lhc Century in an article  entitled "The- Dry Farmers of  Rome."    Hc says in part:  "Plainly thc Romans were master  dry farmers-to succeed-under conditions worse than those under which  wc have failed. How did they do it? | has "*onc  Can wc not copy them? Fortunate- tons ������ of  ly, wc can copy them, for they succeeded by the very simple device of  growing tree crops. Since our dry  larming has failed with grain crops  on ten inches of rain and upward,  and theirs succeeded with tree crop's  on ten inches of rain and downward,  the lesson is most plain. Wc, too,  should grow tree crops.  . "The secret is not hard to find.  The perennial plant, of whicli the  tree is the highest type, is nature's  great implement for fighting aridity.  If there is deep water the tree will  send its roots for it. Recently an  artesian ,wcll digger in Arizona  brought up thc live root of a small  bush from the depth of eighty-three  feet. If there is surface water, at almost any season the perennial desert  plant will seize it as a hungry dog  seizes a bone and keep it sccurcly  for months, or even years, supporting life and if'possible maturing a  crop of seed. Many and interesting  are the devices by which plants have  modified themselves to get and hold  water in the fierce and merciless processes of adaptation, natural selection and survival. The olive, for instance, is a deep rooter in moist subsoil or a far-reaching, shallow rooter  if there is no water iu thc subsoil.  Its leaves-are glazed above and hairy  beneath. If undisturbed, the foliage  will completely shade its trunk, thus  protecting it from the ra3"s of the  sun. Given one. good drink, an olive  tree has  shown  its ability to survive  tain in thc future thc thoughts which  fill   them now.  "Everybody must admit that our  nation is great, that it is without  complaints or hesitation, sacrificing  for a great cause. This is an inspiration derived from God. Give the  men in the trenches - my greeting,  at the same time tcllin-g them how  important it is that they keep firm  reliance on  God."  Supplying Zinc to Britain  Possibilities of Zinc Production in  British Cblumbia  London zinc merchants are preparing a scheme whereby Great Britain  will purchase all thc zinc ores produced in Australia. The intention is  to prevent Germany ever again getting control of the supply of zinc to  Britain���������a control she exercised until" the outbreak of the .war. Government assistance is being asked in  order that the sum necessary to build  thc required smelting works in thc  United Kingdom may be secured. At  least fifteen million dollars will be  needed for the purpose.  -As is well known, nearly all thc  zinc hitherto produced in Australia  lo Germany. Over 400,000  concentrates have been  turned out in the Commonwealth  each year and from this 140,000 tons  of spelter (refined zinc) have been  extracted. What such a supply will  mean to Great Britain in thc future  and what the British market will  mean to Australia can readily bc  imagined.  British Columbia has"immense zinc  deposits.

Money Expended Freely  A Big Sisterhood Is Needed to Reduce the Cost of Living.  An investigation into the increased cost of living attendant on war  conditions, and its direct bearing on  thc housewives of Toronto reveals  the following facts:  1. Thc cost of living, so far as the  housekeeper's bills are concerned,  has risen from 30 per cent to '40 per  cent.  2. Dealers vouch for the fact that  they can scarcely remember a time  when the housewife's money circulated with more freedom.  3. The reasons for inflated prices  are, for the most part, undoubtedly  legitimate, _ the chief factors being  transportation, scarcity of labor and  closed   channels  of  import'  4. On thc*other hand, war-time excuses are brought to bear effectively  on credulous people by a few dishonest* dealers and that, in some cases,  shoddy and adulterated goods at  disproportionate prices arc on the  market.  5. No organized ^attempt has been  made by women lo regulate the soaring prices.  6. A little more arithmetic on the  housekeeper's' part in the' diffiusion  of thc householder's money would  tend to improve conditions at home.  Naturally enough, the seller is not  disposed to create an impression of  pessimism which would result in the  shearing off of trade. At the same  time, the housekeeper of Toronto is  up against a problem which calls for  hard thought first and then united  effort. Nor is it a question which  can be put off until tomorrow. The  rich woman,"who is spending freely  on luxuries and meeting increased  demands is indirectly embarrassing  the woman-who finds it a struggle  to pay for the necessities of life.

It  was originated in California, "about  twenty years ago, by a Mr. Logan,  who secured the Loganberry by-  crossing thc red Antwerp raspberry  with thc Aughinbaugh blackberry.  The Loganberry is therefore a hybrid from which has sprang the  "phenomenal" and other varieties.  The      _  loganberry immediately  sprang into large commercial importance in California and in Oregon,  where it is also largely grown. It is  a   very   rich,   highly   flavored     berry, j  Canada was well on its way- lo  ward a readjustment of its economic  life when war broke out.

War Ends French Duelling  Bloodthirsty     Combatants     Are   Advised to Go to the Front.  The duel is one of the ancient institutions of France that has fallen  into neglect during the war. Tlie last  sensational encounter on the "field  of battle"���������a bloodless one���������took  place after the election of the chamber of deputies in 1914, not long before hostilities broke .out] It was  between Joseph Caillaux, former  minister of finance, and his unsuccessful opponent, Louis d'Allicres.  Caillaux hrcd into the air and d'Al-  liercs   fired  into  thc  ground.  Since that meeting M. d'Alliercs  has'been grievously wounded on another field of honor. Acting as intermediary officer between the firing  line and thc command in the rear,  he was hit by a fragment of a shell  that maimed him probably for life.  It is attributed to the fact that so  many Frenchmen like M. d'Allicres  have shed their blood on the battlefield that the duel has bccn.abandoii-  cd, and there is a well-defined sentiment that it has come to an end for  good and all.  Some credit the "sacred union" of  parties and1" classes with this reform,  while there arc certain proofs that it  is due to popular depreciation of personal conflicts between Frenchmen  while "the Germans arc still at Noy-  on." The "'sacred union" has not  prevented  disputes  and provocations.  Two men contesting for a favorable place from which to witness a  review of troops on the Esplanade  des lnvalides came to blows and one  of them tossed his card to the other.  "If you are so eager to fight," cried  a bystander, "why don't you do as  those boys did?" pointing to some  armless and legless soldiers lined up  before the troops to bc decorated.  Two  young men  in a popular  cafe  exchanged sarcasms, followed by   in  suits,     blows     and   an  cards.  "To Verdun "\\ith them!" cried the  spectators.  "Put them out!"  The manager threw both of them  into the street, where thc idlers jeered them until in common defense  Ihcy made up their quarrel and walked off together.  There arc two hypotheses regarding the duel after thc war. In some  cases  thc  disputants  have   both  been  For the first time there has come  from Berlin an admission of the  truth as to the perilous situation of  thc central empires. It is not official, but it passes the censorship in  the dispatches of the wholly sympathetic Karl von Wicgand.  Mr. von .Wicgand says the central  empires    arc   like  a  strong    fortress  stormed   ahd   assaulted   on   all   sides    _ __,  by besiegers.    The fact is obvious to  thcrs    and  the impartial  observer. It is interest  ing that in Germany it should bc recognized and confessed.  How different is this picture from  that which was painted not long  since in thc columns of the German  press and in the articles of Messrs.  von Wicgand,and Schutte. Then we  were told in graphic tenns of the  triumphant advance of Teuton arms  Why Berliners Riot  ���������       . i  Women    of Germany    Not    Making  Trouble   From   Selfish  Reasons  A     Berlin     correspondent     writes:  German  newspapers often attack the  women    of Germany    because,    after  years   jof    constant    warfare    during  which  they have lost husbands,  bro-  sons,    while    themselves  forced to endure untold hardships,  they are showing signs of what is  termed weakness.

Once more,  German    women,  we appeal to you, nay, we coydmand'  you,   to   stop   these   cowardly  lamcn--  tations,' to ,submit to ' existing conditions and not  unnecessarily  to make  life harder to our brave men'who arc  fighting in thc trenches."  - To the unbiased observer   these re-,  proaches directed against the women  of Germany, who have taken up and '  carried   their   part   of   the  burden   of  war in a- most admirable manner, are  by no means justified. The women of  time.- To those who-have studied thejGeVmany have shown fortitude and  progress of the war with intelligent j endurance and if they are becoming  and impartial interest it has been ob- j unmanageable it should, be remem-  vious that sooner or later this would bercd  that  they  arc not  rioting and.  happen. But it is not .what the Kaiser expected when hc launched .his  armies against Belgium, although it  is what he has feared since the battle  of thc Manic. Every effort of the  central empires since that time has  been to prevent this co-operative attack on the part of their foes.  The failure lo crush France was  followed by an attempt to eliminate  Russia as an effective factor in the  military strategy of the entente. It  also failed. Then the drive on Serbia  was begun to hold Turkey in line r.s  an ally and to enlist the aid, if possible, of Bulgaria, Roumania and  Greece. It held Turkey, but to small  purposes. It won Bulgaria, but failed to win thc others; 'it left the situation no better than it was before.  Hemmed' in between the allied armies in Greece and th potential hostility of Roumania, Bulgaria can be  of no real service. Turning again to  the western front, Verdun was assailed, partly in thc hope of a moral  victory and partly in order to demoralize the plans for an Anglo-French  offensive. Verdun has proved another failure. It" may be taken, but  its occupation now will have no significant consequence for the fortunes  of either side, and already troops  from thc Verdun front have appeared   in   the  region  of   the   Sommc.  What will bc the effect on 'the mind  of thc German public when the German press can no longer talk of victory? What will bc thc effect of labored explanations by Major Moraht  andL"other military experts as to the  reasons for withdrawal in France, in  Galicia and on the Austrian front?  After two years of advances here,  there and everywhere, reverses will  be harder to bear for the German  people than they have been for thc  people of the allied countries. The  process of disillusionment is ever  painful* and disturbing. How long  will the central powers maintain the  struggle once the hope of real victory is abandoned?���������Chicago Evening Post.

This, too, would  be an ordinary shirtwaist were the peplums not  added, one under and the other over a belt of  the linen.  m A yellow voile makes a bright note atop a  .white serge skirt. It is trimmed with stitchings of  golden-brown silk, and buttons on the side  with white silk-covered buttons/The collar and  sash are of the white silk, picoted on the edges.  This is a true Russian-blouse model, and is consequently a graceful representative of the over-  blouse style.  Pongee and foulard have been cleverly  combined for another blouse on the Russian  order. This is in one piece from shoulder to  hem. Its other style features are the deep sailor  collar in back and the use of polka-dotted  material for trimming.  Polka dots in groups  of  three  make  the.  coral-and-white taffeta blouse almost amusing.

C.  for  the  by the  Depart  The Live Stock  Outlook in Canada  , _~���������������������������^  Demand for Live .Stock'of All Kinds  Has Never Been Better  That an era of prosperity is opening for the' Canadian farmer, and  that lie has never been in a more  secure position than at present as  "regards the extension of his breeding operations, is the opinion recently expressed by John Bright,  Live Stock Commissioner  Dominion Government.  ** In a pamphlet published  Live Stock Branch of the  ment of Agriculture at Ottawa, thc  subject is pretty thoroughly gone  into, as respects the^ demand for live  stock of all kinds, including horses,  which are almost at a premium now,  as well as beef cattle, other, meat-  producing animals and food products.  Canada-now has the opportunity of  "initiating and developing a trade  on  practically    cquar*"terms    as  against  the    competition    of    other    nations.  . Countries  which  have  been  engaged  in   the_ business   for  years   now   pos-  ��������� sess no particular advantage over  their' younger rival, Canada. Commercial connections <and other trade  assets whicli they formerly possessed  have "been  largely  broken    down  ��������� and nullified within the past eighteen  months, owing to the war. A n_w  trade era is being established and the  'farmers of Canada-have a better opportunity than ever before to extend  ��������� their business abroad.1 *        -  ���������  ���������With reference to cattle,"'the prices  .^ current for beef <on the-Smithfield  I* market during 1915 increased 40 per  cent, since the/outbreak of war. -The  supplies of frozen beef cannot nearly meet the demand, and this has'  "forced buyers to take the chilled  article, with the result -that prices  i- have advanced sharply. The general  beef, situation emphasizes the shortage of supply. It- has never - been  indicated from any country that there  is"'an undue accumulation -of beef in  storage or a congestion of cattle going t forward ,-to market. Present  prices'.and present demand confirm  this fact  ��������� A good herd of milking beef cows  will  bring in  a  return as  regular, as  the  change of  seasons,  and if labor  i-is^not available-two  or .more  calves  '  may be put on a single cow, and bet-  . tcr calves reared than if fed ,by hand.'  The' feeding of these  calves until fit  \frir market, whether as baby beef or  ^ as butcher  or export  stock, will  en-  '"' sure a  steadier income  than  can  be  obtained by a continuance of the old  methods. No practice will so, tend to  conserve female stock nor so speedily add ' to  our available    supply of  beef.  With reference 'to sheep, -the report refers to the fact that Iamb and  mutton are'dear the world over, record prices having been  Canada during the past year. The  position of the world wool market is  very firm at present, and there is no  indication that the market will be  -overstocked or prices recede. This  .puts the Canadian farmer in a very  strong position as regards the sale  of his wool this year. At the same  time no "farm animal can be made  more profitable at the present time  ���������to its owner.  Touching on hogs, the report says  they'also have reached an unprece-  dentcdly high level. Canada stands  ���������at present in a better position to develop a permanent bacon trade with  ���������Great Britain than ever before. Britain has increased her imports- of  bacon enormously since thc beginning of the war, due mainly to thc  "heavy purchases made by the British war office, and also to the fact  that higher wages have been paid in  the most important classes of employment. The Canadian hog is of  -a type from which Wiltshire bacon  -can be successfully produced. A new  demand has been created since the  war for frozen meat in France, and  it is expected that for some years  after the war she will open her doors  to all supplies from the allied countries.  During the past few years Canada  lias been producing more eggs, the  Increase since 1913 being about 17,-  "000,000 dozen, exporting last year  about 8,000,000 dozen, most of which  went to the United Kingdom. As  many chickens as possible should be  hatched. Eggs at winter prices are  a paying proposition, and 'poultry  alive or dressed at present or prospective ��������� market conditions Can be  reared and finished at a good profit.  In the words of a very well-known  London (Eng.) produce man, "Canada can* now; sell to Great Britain  ���������and France anything she can produce." The report emphasizes  stronglythe fact that permanent success depends not only upon volume  of supply, but upon the integrity and  scientific _ intelligence which may  characterize our. business relations.in  all their related phases' during the  war.  From a general survey of the  whole situation it would appear that  Canada will be in a better position  during the coming months to obtain  sale for her products than she has  been able to secure for herself at any  previous time.

E. Aughinbaugh in" Leslie's,  Great Britain not -only secured the  largest share, but also the territories  having the greatest commercial value,  reached^ in |>I have already discussed the" South  African Union and Egypt, and briefly  outlined the wonderful futures of  these colonies. Let us consider the  remaining British possessions in Africa.  British East Africa consists of a  large part of-the mainland of "Africa  proper, including the East ^African  Protectorate, the Uganda Protectorate and the islands of Zanzibar, and  Pen-lb-"*". It covers an area of 378,899  square miles, and has a population of  7,245,000, of whom -only 10,000 are  Europeans. Mombasa, with a population of 30,000, which .includes 150  European officials, is the largest city.  Nairobi is the capital, with 14,000 inhabitants,  800  being white.  In this colony much rubber and  sisal is grown, while the cultivation  of cotton along the rivers is rapidly increasing. On the lowlands, co-  coanuts, copra, cassava, caraway seed  and rice flourish, while in the highlands increased areas are being devoted to wheat and coffee. Black  wattle is being extensively raised,  and is thc largest industry. There is  also much ostrich and sheep farming. Zanzibar is noted for its cloves,  and yields one-third of the supply of  the world. The last census showed  6,000,000 bearing trees, mostly owned by Arabs. It has about 3,200  square miles of forests, chiefly ebony,  mahogany, copal and cabinet woods.  There are practically no mineral resources. The yearly exports are $15,-  905,000,  imports $21,500,000.  If nobody on the farm can do so it  should be sent away to the Dominion  Agricultural Department at Ottawa  for identification and information  concerning its control.  Among the commonest field weeds  is the grassy pest known as foxtail.  It is a kind of wild millet which  grows from seed and lives only one  year.  It is not a serious weed except  when wet weather in June prevents  land from being cultivated.  Most of^ the common weeds which  infest cultivated crops live only'one  year. They produce lots of seed.  These live long enough in the ground  so that even after four or five years  of meadow or pasture they arc still  liable to do damage to cultivat_d  crops.  There is no easy way to get the  best of weeds. The crops should be  kept as 'clean as they conveniently  can. The land hoe must be used-as  a cultivator cannot be depended upon  to destroy all the weeds. The Dutch  or push, hoe is an invaluable article'  for this purpose.  _ In some sections the weeds which  live from year to year and spread by  underground rootstocks as well as  seeds are troublesome. -Quack grass",  Canada thistle, horse-nettle, and  morning glory are the worst weeds  of this type. These pests have about  as much fight in them as the common  annual weeds.  If they are cut off at the surface  of the ground they come up again  and-again. But if you keep at it long  enough you can kill ' them. Land  infested^ with this kind of weed is  oftentimes best put to alfalfa or  pasture. Frequent mowing is hard  on  them.  Pastures and meadows have weeds  which- generally do not bother corn.  Sorrel, dock, ragweed and buckthorn  are the common weeds of this type.  In alfalfa, blue grass is a bad weed.  Most pasture and meadow weeds live  over year after year.  The Art of Handling: Men  Great Tact Is Required by Officers  >to Handle Men Successfully  When, a citizen  becomes a soldier  he  is  not  transformed    from  a  free  man to a cog in a machine.    That is  the purely  German  idea.'   It is   true  that the longer a man is under military discipline,  and  the  better he is  trained,    the readier he    becomes to  obey the will    of a  superior    officer  without     question,     almost    without  -Ihought-'but It "would'be a bad thing  for   Canada   if   the   military   training  were to be of a character to deprive  her soldiers of full citizenship. Training  can  never    be   long  and  severe  enough  to make a good  soldier respect an incompetent officer, no  matter how high his rank.    Soldiers cannot be deprived of their right to form  private judgment upon the men who  command them, notwithstanding that  they have little freedom of speech in  that regard.    Any friction,that there  may have been in  the past between  officers and men, and there has been  surprisingly little in  view of all  the  circumstances, has been chiefly owing  to the fact that the officers have not  understood how to handle men.  It is no  easy task.    One does not  Wants Soldiers on the Land  Co-operation of Overseas Dominions  Needed to Direct Returned Soldiers to Agricultural Pursuits  Sir Rider Haggard left a favorable  impression on his visit here ten years  ago. He was best known as a nov-  e a man of affairs and a farmer of experience.  Since then he has done some of his  best work and displayed his ability  to take hold of useful duties with the  ardor of the mystic, and literary  tasks with the illumination of the  seer. He has gone round the world  in an effort to excite interest in the  work of thc Royal Colonial Institute,  which he 'represents, in its effort to  direct men returned from war to  settle on land within the limits of  the Empire. He asserts that the  idea of there being much land fit for  settlement in England is a mistake.  Not so much as is supposed is occupied by the parks of million acres.  "You read of the waste spaces of  England," he says; "I fail to find  them. I admit that a great deal of  the land could be better farmed than  it is. Probably, gentlemen, you will  be able to make the same remark  about your own land." There are  difficulties about settling men on land  in England. Sir Rider speaks of the  peculiarity in the English character  that very few of those not actually  brought up on the land care to establish themselves on it, and if they  do, then their wives don't. ������������������ With the  disbanding of five million men he expects to see a great national unrest, f  and he desires that those who leave  the shores of England shall be directed to lands under the flag. He  has no scheme to propose, but invites  the co-operation of all the overseas  Dominions.���������Toronto World.  What the Drive is Doing"  There is no "sign as yet that the  Allies are within sight of that long-  desired hour when they can really  break through the German lines and  resume _the warfare of other days. It  is in its indirect results that/next to  the wearing down of the German  forces, the_ allied offensive is telling  most. It is preventing the sending  to the east to hold off the Russians;  it is straining the nerves and the resources of the German general staff  to the utmost, and it is hourly > bruising further thc! morale of the entire  German_people, who must now realize that their hopes of'an early and  separate peace with France���������which  they were told was to bc the result  of their capture of Verdun ��������� were  utterly without foundation. ��������� New  York Evening Post  Vegetables Keep Fresh.

Free Advertising:  The Newspaper Man    Is Often Expected to Give Away His Stock  in Trade and Work for Nothing  Nobody ever thinks of going to the  coal dealer and asking him to send a  little coal up to the church or lodge  room to heat up the building for a  meeting or entertainment. Nor does  one ask the ice cream man to donate  ice cream, nor does one suggest that  the electric light company furnish  lights for the occasion. But people  often express surprise and resentment if the newspaper man asks remuneration for an advertising notice  relative , to aforesaid ��������� meeting or entertainment  If the coal'dealer or the ice cream  man or the electric light company  should voluntarily donate said coal,  ice cream or lights, the recipients  thereof would be exceedingly grateful, and would probably, instruct the  newspaper man to run a free notice  telling the public all about the generosity of aforesaid coal dealer, ice  cream man or electric light company.  But nobody runs a notice eulogizing  thc generosity of the newspaper man.  For free advertising, especially 'of thc  reading notice brand (which, by the  way, is the most expensive in time  and labor), is taken for granted a������  the natural gift.  The editor very gladly gives a certain amount of complimentary space  to charitable and ,other organizations  weekly. Hc gives this freely, to the  exact limit of space available. This  complimentary service means work  for the 'compositor and work for the  make-up man. It is work absolutely  without ,hope of reward. And there  are in this community persons so  devoid of appreciation of courtesies  extended, that not only do they fail  to express gratitude for favors shown  but on occasion feel it incumbent up1  on themselves to bawl out the editor  if perchance he does not allow them  the quota of space they consider  their natural right If the butcher  should present them with a fine, juicy  steak Friday evening, would these  same persons visit his shop on Saturday morning and roast him to a  turn because the steak was not sufficient  for  their 'entire  family?  The newspaper main's space is  just as much his stock in trade as the  coal dealer's coal, the ice cream  man's ice cream, the electric light  company's electricity, "or the butcher's meats. The average man never  thinks of the hours of toil���������downright sweating toil���������it takes to get  'out a paper. He never thinks of the  worry, trials and tribulations every  editor must undergo. Every line of  type in a newspaper represents labor  that costs money, and there is a lot  of money tied up in type, composing  machines, presses and other equipment. Paper and ink, rent, heat,  light, power and insurance must be  paid for out of "the income derived  from the newspaper man's stock in  trade.���������-Exchange.  A Protest From the West.  Four hundred western   men are to  Japan on the War.  The present European war may  have been a great surprise to some-  people,biit it was a natural thing to  those who have studied western civilization carefully enough since the  19th century began. The present war  was .not started by the mistakes of  the statesmen and diplomats. Something in the western civilization caused this war. It was inevitable. It  was a great mistake that the west  tried to build itself upon commercialism,, nationalistic selfishness, materialistic, individualism and philosophy. The 19th century taught us  how to build states upon mistaken  principles of selfishness, materialistic  desires, national and international  forces. The 19th century has only  left problems to be solved by later  centuries. Thus, the 20th century inherited the civilization of thc west.  Japan is different from the west in  .social and industrial makeup; Japan,  therefore, has a pre-eminate and special position in the civilizing of the  world.���������Japan Advertiser.

Many of our officers in  charge of a hundred or a thousand  men in uniform today never had the  ordering even'-of an office boy a year  ago. It is inevitable that they should  make mistakes, but ignorance of  things that are a common place to  every foreman of a section gang in  Canada ought not to disqualify an  officer*, for : His arduous duties if he  has the right stuff in him. He does  not need any quarter-deck manner,  or bluff "my man" airs. It is far  safer for him hot to bluff at all, to  first win' the liking of his men as a  man, and afterwards the respect of  the soldiers as their officer. If he is  able to impress those under him with  the fact that his first desire is to see  that his men get a square deal, and  if .he .is equally insistent that their  necessary work must be done, he has  conquered the chief obstacle to success as a leader.���������Toronto Mail and  I be drafted to fill up an Ottawa battalion, with more of the same thing  likely to follow to complete divers  arid sundry eastern battalions.

Twenty years later, so amazing had  been his upward progress, he was  drawing a salary of '$800,000 a year  as President of the new American  Steel Trust and was thc holder of  stocks and shares valued $40,000,000,  representing $2,000,000 for every year  since he earned his first dollar as  stake-driver.  Today the fortune of Mr". Schwab,   '  ex-mail   cart  driver and  grocer's  assistant,  is estimated at anything between 15 and 20 million pounds.

For the first  time since. thc war began he takes  the world into his confidence and unfolds the ghastly truth about "the  failure of the Russians to maintain  their'armies in the field with sufficient munitions. It is generally supposed that the main loss began with  the blowing up of a great factory at  Petrograd. While that to some extent was true, it was not all the truth.  This is how the situation stood  twelve months ago:���������"Russia was in  a desperate case. I shall never forget  the atmospheie of gloom in which  we lived for a while after we knew  that thc armies were retreating because they had next to no ammunition. Many felt despair. Happily,  there were stout hearts and capable  heads among Russia's-leaders. Not  only among soldiers and officials,  but among manufacturers, -business  men, engineers; among the people's  representatives on t'o.wri and county  councils. Very quickly heads were  put together. Changes began to be  made.  And   this   is    how the treacherous  Germans served the unprepared    but,  long-suffering Russians:���������  "One of the factories I visited was  before the war under German.management. It remained under management tainted by German sympathies for some time after the. war. had  begun. Then the direction was  changed; became entirely Russian.  Since then the production has increased, the work has been more  satisfactory, thc workpeople are better treated, and therefore content. In  every way the clearing out of ihc  Germans, whether naturalized or not  has been an advantage. And, clever  as they are at wriggling and crawling, they will never find their way  back. Russia, under stress of war,  has made more industrial progress  that would have been registered in  fifteen years  of peace.  "The enemy did his best to stop  it, to tic up Russia's movements. A  general of artillery who took me over  a cartridge factory told how his attempts to buy a certain kind of wire  in neutral countries were watched  and combated by German spies. He  would go to a firm and arrange for a  purchase. Next day they would  send excuses. They had made a mistake. Other orders had precedence  of his. Or they had none of the  article in stock. He knew they had  been bribed or threatened. . He knew  quite will by sight the spies who  were tracking him. He got what he  wanted, but it took time.  "As one goes through these munition works in Russia one is told constantly, 'Here we have increased the  number of workmen by several .thousand,' or 'This has been enlarged  to thrice its former size,' or 'In these  works, the output was at first a few  thousand. Now it runs into hundreds  of thousands and is still going up.'  At one place forty thousand people  are working, mostly iff three shifts.  They make a town by themselves and  their families. They have schools of  their own (free to thc poorer workpeople), a vast co-operative store,  theatre and kihematograph. A Scots  man I found in a responsible position  there told me he never saw harder  work done, or a more intense keenness shown for quality as well as  1 quantity of output. ���������   , :  l  siiii^^P^ -' J., > ���-

London, i'V*V.bowns, unci Tcfojlo
Altogether a man oT singularly
attractive presence, and Mabin, as
she shyly thanked him, felt inlcrcst-
cd and curious. Where did hc come
from? Who was he? What was he
doing  here?
"There you arc!" cried he, as, after
much shaking and pulling, and moving of' obstructive articles of furniture, he succeeded in forcing up the
window. "You've got air, at any
rate. Bul as to thc freshness of it,
��� that's quite another thing! However,
over here in this benighted hole, 1
suppose you don't sec the sun often
enough to miss him when he's away!"
He was standing back, smiling, and
wiping thc grime off his hands with
a colored pocket handkerchief. Mabin smiled demurely.
"Do  you   call   London   a   benighted
holer" she said in a shy voice.
".Most   certainly   1   do."
"Oh!"  said  she,  and  said  no   more.
It  was   not   proper  to   engage  in  a
long conversation     with     a  stranger,
aud besides,  she  had  nothing to say.
He, on his side, seemed lo be suffering from  similar  embarrassments. At
least, he "continued  to   rub  his   hands
long after Ihcy    were clean,    and to
smile at her as hc did so.    At last he
'"Where     T   come   from     there  are
r   trees as high as this house, and a climate  like   heaven."
"Yes. And after eight years away
from England, what you get here in
the way of a climate seems poor
*'Yes, J suppose so."
"And the people! Good Lord, I'd
forgotten how wretched the people
look here! What a lot of grimy
loaf.ers you sec in the streets, and
what a hard, devil's drive of a life
they seem   lo  lead!"
-Mabin w;,s interested. It seemed
odd a man who had never seen her
before should thus want to dash into
conversation about his view of what
she supposed was his native land on
his return lo it, but as hc was frank,
she took courage and was frank also.
,'"Why did^you come back to it,
then, if you don't like il?" she asked
innocently. **
He seemed taken aback l5y her
question,' and the way -in which he
looked down and smiled at her made
her feel quite confused, so that she
bent her head  and  grew  red.
"Well," he said, "that's a fair
question, but I'm afraid it would bore
you to hear thc answer, for it would
have to bc a long one. In fact,
there's   reams   of  answer���reams."
"'Oh,  I  didn't  mean "
Don't say that. I was delighted to
find that anyone in this old country
was even interested enough in me to
ask a  question  about  me."
"Oil,  pray  don't   think��� "
"I'd like to think that you wanted
to hear what l'.ni going to tell you,"
said hc, cutting her short in the most
good-humored manner, and plunging
into   a   startling   explanation���   .
"Look here. I went away from
England ;cight years ago because I
was in the way. And I've come back
because I, found put that it was being
taken for.gra'n.te'd. that I was out of
the way. That is, my kind friends
were asking for leave to presume my
death. What do you think of that?*'
"I think it was quite time that you
C3iiic back to show them that you
were alive," said Mabin, getting more
at her ease in the face of his ready
confidence, and of a certain sincerity
in the man's looks and manner of
speech, which charmed away her reserve.
"So think I," said he, with a smile.
"Though, in the circumstances, I
can't help being afraid that I shall
meet with a cool welcome."
Mabin felt more interested than
ever. Who were the odd people who
were not-ready to greet such a nice
man with delight' That was the
iirst thought that occurred to her,
and perhaps she showed her feeling
in" her pretty eyes.
*���    "You   do   yo.nr   friends   injustice,   I
should think," she said demurely.
"I'm   afraid   not,"   said   he,   with   a
shake of thc head.    "They've sent an
ambassador  to   meet  mc. today   here,
to  put me off."
"Yes; not very cheerful after eight
years' absence, is it? However, I'm
trespassing on you. You must forgive me. I'm a savage���absolutely
a   savage."
Al the moment there was heard a
sharp knock on the outer door of the
offices, and the bearded stranger, who
was holding the handle of the door
of the inner room, as if to show that
he was going to retire, although hc
could not bring his mind lo it, with-
drcvy with another apology for his intrusion.
Mabin heard the voice of thc clerk
a moment later, saying: "Someone to
see' you,  sir."
And then she heard thc bearded
stranger sav, curtly: "How do you
Another voice replied, in tones too
low for her to hear more than a word
or two of tiie commonplace greeting  littered.
There was a pause; the clerk retired, and then the voice of the newcomer, raised so that she could hear
him distinctly, called put to him that
he could go and get his luncheon.
"Thank y"ou, sir," said the clerk.
And during the pause that followed
Mabin heard the clerk go out, shutting  the  outer  door  behind  him.
Mabin felt very uncomfortable.

bearded stranger was aware of her

said. All thai she knew was that he
was doing his best 'to soothe thc irritated' man, whose short, angry ejaculations broke in from time to lime
upon the smooth, even flow of the
other's   words.
Mabin, reassured after that first
outbreak -and the .instant subsidence
of the-noise, put ' her hands to her
ears again, and was successful in that
she heard nothing distinctly after
Finally both voices died away into
silence, and she took her hands from
her  ears  once more.
The sounds were different now.
One of the men was walking up and
down (he room, for she could hear

linoleum-covered floor. He was
hummyig to himself as he walked,

"Confound this pen; it . won't

And from this she knew; that it was
the man with the fair beard who was
writing, while the other walked.     .
Then, for a time, there was no
sound at all, and then���an odd sound,
as of something falling heavily, and
a cry, stifled at once, dying away into-
broken groans. This was followed
by a tremendous crash, as of something heavy  falling against the door.

crossed the floor. The door opened
outwards, and although she could
turn       the handle,       she       could
only force the door open by about
an inch. There was something heavy
on. the other side.      v
All this time the faint groaning
continued, and she pushed again,
madly anxious to sec what had happened and who it was that had been
attacked. For she was sure, that an
attack had been made.       *--
But before she could do more than
push open the door by another inch,
and before thc space was wide enough for her to.sec anything on the
other side, the door was slammed,
and the key, which was on the outer
side, was  turned in  the-lock.
"Open,  open  the   door!"  cried  she.
There came no answer, and for
some  seconds  she   heard   nothing.

The War's History
How Much Do Wc.Know About the
Great Struggle.
How much do wc know about the
war wc imagine ourselves to J-e seeing? If wc could read now thc history .which will be published 50 years
hence, wc-might not be .able, to rcc-!
ognize the story. It may minimize
or leave out many of the things
which seem to us now to be the i
most important and dwell on events
we have not even heard of. In this
age of light, much of the war is being
fought in the dark.
The Marquis of Crewe, on July 20,
1916, tell-rthe House of Lords for the
first lime that from December, 1914,
lo September, 1915, war was going
on upon thc northwestern frontier of
India; that in that time there wcre.no
less than seven separate attacks,
*'somc of a very formidable character." A mere attack of unorganized
and ill-armed tribesmen could not bc
"formidable" lo the government of
India. What has been going on
there? The danger must be over, or
the government, which/ concealed it
so successfully, would not admit it
now in this way. It must have been
a "formidable" danger indeed when
no hint of it was allowed to leak out
to a nation -.which was permitted to
learn of the failure in the Dardanelles campaign and the disaster in
Mesopotamia. It is plain to sec that,
though wc, thc contemporaries, know
nothing of the war in India of 1914-
15, our children will bc devoting
much attention to it in their study
of history in school.
, A matter of much less significance,
but illustrating our contemporary ignorance, loo, is that of the postcard
received by the American Board
from a missionary nurse in Turkey���-
apparently a mere note of greeting,
but containing mysterious /references
to one verse in the Book of Job and
one in the Psalms. On looking up
the references the fact is revealed������
choiei*a is raging and famine is' at
hand. The-ingenious'nurse smuggled
the fact past the Turkish censor on,
the postcard.. Hitherto the world has
remained in ignorance of it���aiid of
how "much else that is going on in
Turkey we have no idea, for that
country has been masked from us for
months.: As to Persia, our knowledge of the important events that
have been taking place there is practically at zero; If we. could have a

The romantic atmosphere is not lacking. When the Briton says "au re-

thc trenches hc may never come back
and he is-going tonight for France.
On Sunday afternoon the girls are
out in their best frocks, as they are
everywhere else in the world, and
walking with, them along the roads
and lanes are men in khaki. Their
conversation is a mixture of French
and English. It is not romance
alone that leads thc Briton to marry
in Franco. He has learned to admire
the thrift and cleverness' of the
French woman and her industry in

which he had meant to'in the town.' ���

"good-bye"  to  both  money and piir-
chases.   The Scout, however, had the

there    are many    openings for such '���

The character of the Boy Scbuti
movement will be"**hest understood by
a glance at the "promise" exacted of
each boy as he becomes a member:
"I 'promise on my honor, first, to be
loyal lo God and to the King; second, to try to do a good turn daily
to other people; and third, to obey <
the' Scout law." He is accepted'by
the-Scoutmaster, who says: "I trust
you, on your honor, to keep this
promise. You are now one of tlie-
gfeat brotherhood of Scouts." At
the very outset the boy is placed
upon his honor, the strongest sentiment in the heart of a healthy boy.
His; manliness is appealed to and
properly approached, a boy's manliness seldom fails. He is treated as
a riian, and the result almost invariably is that he acts as a man. This
i% one of the great lessons taught by
the Boy Seoul movement to both
parents and teachers. The Boy u
Scouts in Great Britain arc at present regarded as about as necessary a,
part of the war as arc the regular
soldiers. It has been demonstrated
already in thc history of this movement that Boy Scouts make the best
soldiers, as many of those who began as Scouts are now fighting the
Empire's -battles in Europe, and
above all it has been demonstrated '
that in fulfilment of their initiatory
promise they become good citizens,
loyal to God and the King, and doing good to their fellow-men...
King George's Memory.
King George's wonderful memory
for faces was again demonstrated on
a trip through the accident ward of a
great hospital. Two years before on
a visit to the same hospital he talked
to a patient with a broken leg. This
time he recognized the* same man.
"You were here last time I came,"
said the King "but you were in that
bed over there."
"Yes, your Majesty," replied the
man, "it's the other leg this time."

The mounted police seldom or never
let a murderer escape in their territory. Thc chase is invariably maintained until the shedders of blood
arc brought to justice or perish in
the wilderness. That is why Western
Canada and the far northern country
is. a pretty safe country to travel in.

The world's potato crop in 1914  covered 30,000,000 acres, . giving a  yield  of 4,375,000,000 bushels.  Of the' total acreage Russia had  9,000,000 and Germany 8,367,000.  Gcimany led in total yield, however,  with' 1,67-1,000 bushels, against less  than one billion for Russia. France  had half a billion bushels, and the  United  Slates 405,000,000.  In yield per. acre, Norway came  first with an average of 247 1-2  bushels; Great Britain and Ireland  second with 241, Trance third with  230, Holland fourth with 223, and  Germany fifth with 200. The avcr-  for Canada was 180, and for the  United  States  109.  hi Germany, which produces well  over one-third of the world's potato  crop, only 28 per cent, of the yield  is used for human food in normal  years. Forty per cent, of the total  is'-'fed direct to animals, 100,000,000  bushels are used in the making of  alcohol, and 50,000,000 bushels rrc  utilized in the manufacture of starch  and  allied  products.  In Japan a start has also been  made in-the manufacture of starch  from potatoes in a large way, .t'rc  output for 1914-15 being 35,500,000  pounds.  Good-bye to Asthma.

Thc smuts of grain are carried  from year to year in the spores of  smut either on the surface or within  tITe kernels of grain. If a head of  smutted grain is observed in the  field and one takes pains to trace the  head down to t^ic plant from which  it comes and pulls up thc whole  plant, he will find that all of thc  heads coming from that -plant are  smutty, and consequently will not  produce  grain.  Throughout the West, there is a  loss usually of from one dollar and  upward per acre of grain due to the  effects of smut.  Practically every particle of this  smut could bc controlled by treating thc seed grain. Every farmer  knows how to treat seed grain for  smut, or hc can find out very easily.  Thc cost of treatment, labor and ma-  tciial included, will normally bc less  than five cents per acre. y  ' Wc know of no other investment  that will return as large a profit. We  are sure that more farmers would  treat for smut if they .would lake the  trouble to examine their grain' fields  when they arc heading out and actually make a count of the smutted  heads in a given area.  A good way to do this is to drop a  barrel hoop down in a grain field and  count all the stalks of grain within  thc hoop, and then count the number  of smutted heads. If one docs not  actually look for smut hc may pass  through a field every day in wliich  there is as much as ten to fifteen pcr_  cent, of smutted heads and never no  lice them.  further. - The inner sur  becomes roughened, and  begin to corrode.

Thc life of a gun depends upon the  progress of erosion, which soom;** or  later is certain to impair the .accuracy of fire. Erosion is caused by the  action of the explosive gases at high  temperature and pressure. According to the Iron Age, thc hot gases  cause a thin film of steel to absorb  heat. .The film expands and becomes  set. Upon the release of the pressure, it contracts, wliich causes minute cracks that grow larger with  every discharge.

When the Stomach Is Out of Order  the    Whole    System.  Suffers.  Indigestion is one of the most-distressing maladies afflicting mankind.  When thc stomach is unable to perform the work nature calls for, the  result is severe pains after eating,  nausea, heartburn, fluttering of the  heart, sick headache, and often a  loathing for food, though the sufferer  is really half starved. People with  poor digestion, loo, frequently try all  sorts of experiments to aid thc process of digestion, but there is only  one way in which the trouble can actually be cured, that is ihrojigh the  blood. That is why the tonic treatment with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  cures even the most obstinate cases  of indigestion. They make rich, red  blood that strengthens thc stomach  and the nerves, thus enabling it to do  its work. The process is simple, but  the result means good appetite and  increased health and pleasure in life.  In pi oof of these statements, Mrs.  Albert Hall, Sonya, Out., says: "I  have used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  with wonderful results. For - two  years I was a great sufferer from indigestion, which almost made me a  physical wreck. At times my sufferings were so great that I was unable  to attend to my household duties. I  had smothering spells at times and  was afraid lo lie down lo rest. After  every meal, no matter how sparingly  I ate, I suffered great distress. . I  tried several doctors but their medicine was of no avail. I saw Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills advertised to  cure this' trouble and decided to try  them. I had not been taking them  long when I fell somewhat improved. This improvement continued "and  after taking ten boxes I could eat  and digest all kinds of food and felt  belter than I had done for years.  You may bc sure I am very grateful  for the wonderful, relief these pills  have given.nie. 1 know they are also  1 cure for anaemic sufferers, as an  c friend'of mind was badly  with Ibis trouble, and after  taking scvcial boxes she was entirely cured."

E.  then' attacked the Fokkcr at point-  blank range. The Fokkcr banked  over lo the left, and something whicli  looked like a box fell out. The machine then rose, dived, and was last  seen spiralling down close lo earth.

From a war despatch of thc future:  Five times that day had the Cold-  cream Fusilccrs charged Talcum  Hill, only lo be repulsed by thc heroic defence of the Powder Puff  Guards. On each occasion the Fusil-  ccrs had been aided by a chintz curtain of fire from the Organdy Light  Artillery,   but  this   had   not  sufficed.  Five miles away, in Tea House  Hcadquartcis, Gen.

They are trying to find some  reason or reasons Lor the defeat  of- thc  Bowser* administration.  There aro many reasons.   First,  was   the  attempt  to introduce  Colorado   .methods    into    coal  minim**- on    Vancouver   Island.  When  "British   workmen   were  forced out of tho coal  mine,*"- at  the  point  of   the    bayonet   to  make   room   for  Japs,   Chinks,  Austrians and hunks.   This was  thc beginning, and British work-*  men,   residents   and  voters  of  Vancouver   and  Victoria, wore  the "pluggers" who gave  Macdonald and Brewster their majorities in the by-elections,    No  intelligent voter  in British Columbia   believed that Liberals  were any more  guilty of plugging   than   Bowsoritos.      Then  there were the Dominion Trust,"  land monopolies,  railway aids,  and   a   machine   composed   of  as  disreputable  a gang of professional slanderers'as ever were  got   together  in  any   country.  The cabinet  was  a cabinet of  lawyers, and   enactments were  made   for   the   lawyers  alone;  even the bars were closed in the  morning   until  11, a time when  -the legal gentlemen  are said to  require a  bracer.    On  his tour  the Premier had with him Bob  Green, who some years ago was  compelled   to  resign from  the  provincial  cabinet and' who is  the machine  representative for  Kootenay in the federal parliament.    In North Okanagan, the  premier  asked   the  electors to  support  Price Ellison, another  ex-minister who had   to resign.  In   Kootenay    Six   Bowserites  were defeated (among themtwo  cabinet  ministers), two  elected  and   one   doubtful.    In  North  Okanagan Ellison was defeated  in, we believe, every  poll.    Mr.  Bowser is not a  leader, 'neither  is he a follower; just a lawyer.

The company   was   granted  a   charter  with a view to furnishing transportation   facilities   to   people  along  the  proposed   line and a  through   service to the coast in  Canadian   territory.    The company has not fulfilled the terms  of  the  agreement upon which  the charter was  granted.    The  federal government should cancel the charter.    Railway com  panies  should  not  be  allowed  privileges that are not allowed  individuals in regard to agreements entered into/  going   now   about their  work"  There is   no   hymn  of  hate  in  their resources; they  have   no  "Marsellaise"; theirs  will   be  a  slow, silent but relentless action.  What you have to feel  and see  is millions of men  who  are at  last awake to  the fact that all  that life means   to   them   nationally,    morally,    spiritually,  has been threatened.   After the  tradition   of  his  race   and  the  fashion  of his  nation the Englishman,   millions   of  him,  has  now  gone   out  to  kill   and   be  killed until the work that is to  be   done   is   done.    Once   that  spirit   was   clear   in   England,  then  those   of us   who  believe  that all that America as well as  all that democracy  held best in  the  world  was at stake in this  war, could afford   to roll up the  war maps  and   put   aside-the  battle reports.
