Barnard, Govt. Roane, In'c-  loria, B. C.  Three months ago Duchess of  Connaught was informed that  women of-Canada desired to  present her on occasion of her  departure some token of ap  pre'eiation of her deep interest  in all that 'concerns the Avell-  faro of the country. Under  present conditions her royal  highness decided that she could  not accept a personal gift. The  suggestion- Avas made that in  meinorA' of her association with  Conu-da a fund might be raised  for some patriotic, purpose connected with the war. This Avas  also declined on account of the  numerous funds being raised.  The womefi again brought the  matter to the attention of her  i^oyal highness, and she has  graciously consented to allow  us to present the "Prisoners of  War Fund*' with a gift. As the  time for appeal is limited, would  you kindly place it as early as  possible before the women of  your province as worthy of  their sympathy and cooperation. Lauka Borden.

' Once you arc a scoul you s  llways remain a scout." Such advice,  coming' from the lips of one so great  and noble as the late Lord Kitchener,  commands the attention of all. Not  long- before lie went to his watery  gave lie addressed a gathering of Boy  Scouts, when lie made the above statement, and said always being a Scout  meant making- oneself efficient, doing  one's best, helping other people,  and also serving one's :ou.*'.(ry.  " But," he said, " don't merely do this  ���������'.while you are still a boy.

Immediately after the fight  Sir ^.Robert Badcn-Powcll sent a message to Sir John, congratulating him  -li'vii.i i on *nc splendid victory gained bv the  (lect. I he following reply was received: "Please convey to the Boy  Scouts the sincere thanks of all ranks  of the grand fleet, including brother  Scouts, for their kind telegram."  A Menace to Britain  The Great  Naval Prize  of The  War  is Heligoland  For both  Germany and  Great Britain, the fortified island of Heligoland  is the most important single point of  naval   attack   by  Great   Britain     and  of naval defence by Germany.    Situated well out in the North Sea, nearly  .   _. _     . . _. thirty  miles   from  the mouth  of  the  before all other things, by doing' yolir! Kiel   Canal,   it  is  a   standing  menace  duly even to death."  That the Boy Scouts of the Western l'roviiic_s arc ''good Scouts," who  strive  lo live up  to  the principals of  the movement, is fully attested in the  place they  have  taken, and are continuing lo  take in   the public  service  of our country.      Though not a military organization in any sense of the  term,  it  is significant  that out  of 73  Scouts   who  at   the   outbreak  of  the  war were officers in the Winnipeg district, 55 are now on active service. Besides   these   officers,  89  of  the  other  Scouls have joined  the colors.      On  account   of "age,     the     majority,     of  course," have been forced to remain at  home.    - But  even  these* have striven  to uphold the name of the organization.   . " ���������.  To have received the blessing of  the Tope is Ihc good fortune of the  Boy Scouts of ' Uruguay in South  America.- Judging from a recent ic-  port of the doing of the Scouts in  Uruguay, they merited this honored  -tribute, for Ihcy^jhavc been " going  strong." They have received the highest 'reward that Roman Catholics can  gel���������the blessing of the Pope, together "with his signed photograph'. It  will be pleasing news to all RoTnan  CatholicScouts to know that their efforts to make themselves good, efficients Scouts has the approval of the  Pope himself.  -      *"  Of particular interest at this time,  when boys in every part of the country are seeking to belong to the Boy  Scouts organization, is the test which  ��������� has been set**for the tenderfoot. It  is interesting to note that no boy can  become a full fledged  Scout until he  .has'passed the test. First of all, he  must satisfy the Scoutmaster of the  troop he wishes to belong to that he  knows the Union Jack; the right way  to fly it; and he must know how to  tic several knots. Tic must give his  promise to do his duty to God and the  -King, to help other people at a"I  times, and to obey the Scout Law.  The Boy Scouts of England were by  no means the last to send congratu-  to British fleets and a potent defence  to German squadrons. But jov the existence of this naval outpost the German naval raids on the British coast  would have been more difficult, more  perilous, and less effective; on the  other hand, but for its existence the  celebrated fight forced months ago by  Admiral Bcatty would have been very  much more disastrous than it was to  the German fleet opposed to his own.  It is not calculated to sooth British chagrin on this subject to recall  that a generation ago Heligoland,  which had never been fortified during sevenly years of British ownership and-: occupation, was, after, its  good-natured and easy-going transfer  to Germanv speedily . converted at  great expense into a strong fortress  and. an up-to-date naval station. All  the naval battles, great and small,  fought during this war, go to show  not merely the importance of Heligoland for both attack and defence, but  also the necessity of its destruction as  a naval base.  Whatever else she may be able to  claim in the way of. hayal trophies or  naval achievements, Britain cannot afford to. let Heligoland remain as ��������� a  menace it is to her naval supremacy.  She never fortified it herself, and if  she had suspected the use to which it  has been put, not even the cynically  good-natured Marquis of Salisbury  would have consented to. its conveyance to Germany. Britain has, in  this as in other ways, suffered heavy  penalties for lack of suspiciousness.  For this she may well b&* pardoned  on ethical grounds, but if she allows  Germany to retain the fortified naval  ���������base���������of Heligoland after the war she  will bo runninfr a risk that no nation  with the power to avoid it ought to  run. The dismantling and destruction;'-of the fortress of Heligoland  should be one of ���������the British conditions of peace.���������Toronto Globe.  Min'ard's Linimenl Cures Diphtheria.  Story of Two  Alberta Boys  First    Canadian    Recruits    for    the  Flying    Service    Were    From  Calgary.  The Hon. A. L. Sifton, Premier of  Alberta, who has been visiting England with* his wife and family, is the  authoiity for the statement that two  Alberta boys were the pioneers  from Canada in joining the Imperial  Hying service. They arc the late  Lieut. Jack Turner-Bone and Lieut.  Spencer Kcrby, both of/'Calgary.  "And," . remarked the Premier,  " what a peculiar fascination attaches  to the,breaking- of new ground in any  field." Within a week or two after  these young Albcrtans had come forward, Canadian recruits for the flying service had become quite an old  story. But tlicy.madc quite a name  for themselves, and the story, as told  by Premier Sifton to a representative  of the London Canadian Gazette, is  interesting. The interview took  place in the Alberta Government's  offices; the windows of which overlook  Trafalgar Square���������the very centre of  the universe to Albcrtans ��������� and Mr.  Rcid, the Agent-General, who also  knew the ilighl-lieutcnanls, supplied  details whenever the Premier paused,  and added words of praise for the  courage and enterprise of these  Western boys.  Turner-Bone, the son of a well-  known Calgary engineer, and Spencer  Kcrby, the son of a prominent preacher in the same tqwhj_had: been great  friends as boys. What one did, the  other had  to do.  "They were,like David and Jonathan," interjected Mr. Rcid.  On leaving school, they decided to  go in for engineering. Turner-Bone  went to Montreal and Kcrby to Toronto. They graduated not long before the war, and when the war  started they were both in Calgary following up the practical side of their  scientific studies in a machine shop  there. , The machine shop lost its attractions as soon as Canada admitted  herself to the great effort and the Calgary boys decided at once lo join the  flying service " somewhere," and as  there wasn't one in Canada, they were  advised that if they came over here  (" incidentally paying all their own  expenses," commented Premier Sifton), they could get into thcR.N.A.S.  Representations being made to the  authorities here that they had come  from Canada for this purpose, and  their "papers" were found to justify their claims, they were soon given  a place in the service, Kcrby being  sent to the Dardanelles for patrol  duty, Turner-Bone to Dunkirk.  "Strange to say," remarked the  Premier, "almost the first announcement made by the Admiralty, in connection with the Roll of Honor, was  the death, in action, of young Turner-  Bone, whose body was found floating  in the sea oft" Dunkirk. But he had  done good work and died at his post.  " As for Kcrby, he was so overworked because of the necessities at  ���������Gallipbli, and of an insufficient number of pilots, '.hat his .health broke  down and he has recently," Premier  Sifton stated, " been invalided back \o  Canada with nervous prostration."  But these splendid spirited young  men���������they were only about twenty  when .'they came over���������had blazed the  air trail for Canada, which has been  hewn wide, and their names -will never  be forgotten in the Province of Alberta. Moreover, the one who is  left will soon be "fit" again, it is  hoped, helped by the invigorating air  of sunny Alberta, and wilL never be  content until he can get back at the  F'okkcrs and all their piratical clan.  oaFueIforBatt!ssMps 'RitbYourStiffNeckAwayTd-day  -Good Old "Nerviline" Will Cur(  If there were "no surprises" in the  North Sea Baltic, here were many  eagerly-sought tests.

Timothy's Effect on Land  Old Notion That It Actually Improved  the Soil  Not Substantiated  It is an old notion that land seeded  to timothy, even though the crop be  removed, is being rested and Improved. This, however, is not true in any  other.sense than that a horse that has  been driven rapioly may be considered as being rested by being' driven  more slowly���������that is to say, timothy  removes the plant food from the-soil  more slowly than does corn ���������or wheat  because a smaller* amount of 'plant  food is required to make the crop.  While the land is in timothy the soil  surface is washed out less rapidly,  because the surface, is bound together throughout the whole year* by  the roots of the timothy plants. The  humus is also burned out less rapidly  since there is no cultivation.  The notion that timothy actually  improves land doubtless grew out -"of'  the fact that when timothy sod was  plowed .under and the land was planted to some such crop as corn a larger  crop was produced than the same  land would have borue had it been  in corn continuously. This is because  the plant has removed plant food from  the soil less rapidly than this food  has become, available In the soil-by.  chemical processes. Investigations  also show that a crop of timothy will  leave in the soil in the form of roots  and stubble over seven pounds of nitrogen to 'the acre against about-two  and five-tenth pounds per acre for  wheat.

The Commission has therefore prepared a scale under which a small  sum for personal expenses will be  granted to the men undergoing train  ing, while provision on a sliding scale  is made'for-'married -men and their  dependants, and for those 'unmarried  men who may have persons legally  dependent upon them. Flcre is the  scale which the Commission has now  been empowered to establish. It will  be understood throughout that "maximum age" means 16 for a son and  17 for a daughter:���������  1. A single man, with pension, living in, receives free maintenance;  that is,  board,  lodging and  washing.  2. A single man, with pension, living out,-60c a day.  # 3. A married    man,  with " pension,  living in,  free maintenance and $8 a  month,  with  the following additions:  For wife having no children, $35  a  month,   less  her  husband'si pension. ^  'For wife aud one child, if child  is under five, $38; from' five to ten  years, $39.50; from 10 to maximum"  age, $42.50; less, in-every case, the,  amount of husband's pension and  children's * allowances under the  '   pension  regulations^  For ,wifc and two children, from'  $41   to  $47  a -month   (less  pension  and  allowances),  according to   age  of children..  ,      For wife and three children, $44  to   $50      (less   pension   and  allow-  )  ances),  according to  ages.  ��������� 'For  wife  and  four  children,  $47  to  $53     (less   pension    and  allowances), according to ages.  _For wife and five children, $50 to  $55.(less pension "and allowances)  according to ages.  For wife and six children, $53 lo  $55 (less pension and allowances),  according  lo ages.  A wife with seven or more children under the maximum age may  be given the maximum allowance  of $55, less pension and allowances.  All these allowance^ for wife and  children,will be paid direct to the  wife, unless otherwise thought fit  by  the   Commission.  4. A married man, living at home  will receive 60c a day. (This, of  course, is in addition to the allowances for wife and children.)  5. A widowed mother, if dependent entirely upon the unmarried son  who is receiving training, and if the  son made an assignment of his pay  to his mother 'and also arranged for  her to receive separation allowance  while he was on service, may be paid  at the same rate as the wife of a  married man with no children.  The  parents of a  man undergo  Germany at War  Is    Keenly  ing training, if both arc old and past  ���������work, and entirely or partia'lv dependent upon him,, may also be paid  ,<.l <hbt rate.  7.

Payments under these regulations  ���������will be con.inu.d for one month after the completion of vocational  training, whether the man has secured employment or not.  It is clear that this system of allow anccsv will enable many men to  take advantage of the training offered, by providing for their families  while the training is being given.

Germany is no  exception, and one travelling in that  country and stopping only at the  best hotels would gain a very limited  and erroneous impression of life as  it really is among the Teutons. It  is line thai bread cards' and t\\o  meatless clays each week, Tuesdays  and Fridays, apply rigidly to hotel  guests, and that dancing is banned  everywhere; but otherwise hotel life  remains practically       unchanged.  Moreover, the large " hostclrics arc  quite crowded, and a stranger dropping in for afternoon tea would  scarcely notice anything out of the  usual, were it not for the numerous  wounded officers and still more numerous Iron Crosses in evidence  everywhere.  For example, I found that butter, lard and fats of all kinds are  scarcely to be hud, at least,' as far  as the common people arc concerned. Salads are plentiful, but "one  must be contented with a vinegar  dressing, as table oils of all kinds  arc absolutely unobtainable. Eggs  are plentiful, and cost from four to  five cents apiece, but must be eaten  boiled or\poachcd, as there arc i.o  fats to fry or scramble them in. (For  the benefit of young housewives, I  will'here 'observe that T tried to  scramble eggs in- a' dry skillet with  indifferent success.) As remarked  above, meats of all kinds, including  sausages, are, almost unobtainable,  but occasionally one ' can -"get th-j  maximum allowance If one is early  enough.- The prices, however���������a  dollar a .pound and more ��������� render  that "small allowance prohibitive for  Tlic poorer' classes. '-*, It is not exaggerating to say that over two-  thirds of the butcher shops in Great-  ler Berlin arc now closed on account of the lack of supplies.  It is an undeniable fact that the  shortage of foodstuffs is beginning  to be felt acutely. The Germans  themselves admit it. *The government is making desperate efforts to  conserve the available' supplies as  long as possible. Cards have now-  been issued covering the consumption of many of-the necessities of  life, and I was told that others are  forthcoming." The people are assured through the press that there is  enough for all until the coming harvests, and that there will be an abundance afterwards. Thats may be true  as far as cereals, fruits and veget"bles  arc concerned, but it can hardly apply  to meats, dairy products and various  imported staples. However, we may  be sure that a highly organized and  far-sccing government will do all in  its power to solve the problem.���������  Riley Scott, in Leslie's.  Fetes in the Family  Agxiculture and  The Movies  Protected by the Navy  Over 21,000 Merchant  Ships Passed  Through Patrol Lines.  In a report to the Admiralty, reviewing the operations of the Dover  patrol since December, 1915, and recommending numerous officers for  meritorious conduct, Vice-Admiral  Sir Reginald Bacon, commander of  the .patrol,��������� says" that in the six  months more than 21,000 'merchant  ships, apart from men of war and  auxiliaries, passed through tl^e patrol  lines. Of these, only 21 were lost or  seriously damaged by enemy vessels.  "But to effect this security to merchant shipping," says the Admiral,  "I regret that over four per cent, of  our patrol vessels have been sunk  and the lives of 77 officers and men  been  lost to the nation."  The Admiral further notes that the  patrol assists in the protection of the  flank of all sea transports ' to and  from the British army in France, and  that'this vast transport has been "so  thoroughly "safeguarded that not a  single life has been lost during the  sea passage.  Mrs. Livingston Wilson, only surviving child of Dr. David Livingstone, the explorer, recently made a  journey to Old ��������� Chilainbo, where her  father's heart was.buried.

Making   the   Most   of   Anniversaries  Strengthens Home Ties.  Little family fetes do much to  strengthen family affection. Take  advantage of any occasion that may-  prompt a gathering of the family; let  not one slip away unnoticed. Graduations, marriages, births, "no event  of "special interest should be neglected.  No anniversary is more personal  than a birthday, be it in youth or  old age, Everybody likes to know  that people arc glad he is here. In  the companionship of their friends,  young folks arc forming tics that  the coming years will .strengthen.  And when the young people help to  celebrate the birthday of a parent  or elder person, they learn thought-  fulness and unselfishness, and find  happiness in making otheis happy.  As the years fly by and a life of  . -"'joys and  sorrows  is  left  behind,  the  0 say I aged person looks eagerly forward  to the celebration of each coming  birthday. The fewer occasions like  this one may look forward to, the  more each anniversary means. One  who has lived many years has found  how fleeting is the joy in mere  material things and has lcaincd to  value more and more Jove, affection,  and the good will that comes from  the hcait���������Milwaukee Journal.

Emperor William during his recent  trip to a point somewhere in the rcar  of Peronne, on the Sommc front,  made a speech to the German wounded soldiers which is .attracting great  attention in Germany. The German  Emperor is quoted as saying:  "It is the most poignant grief of  my life that 1 am unable to take a  more active part in this war. It is  my earnest desire to take my place  in the trenches and to deal such  blows at the enemy aS my age and  strength would permit.  "I could take my place- with the  youngest of you, and_i promise that  I would leave my mark on the enemy.  But the inscrutable Almighty has  willed otherwise. Into my care has  been committed by Divine destiny,  the leadership-'of our country,- its  armies and its forces on.Jand and  sea.  "The burden of thinking, deciding  and leading has been hard upon, me,  and realising this, I know that my  life must not be risked in the.forc-  most line of battle, where my feeling,  if unrestrained, would carry me swift-  "My life must be conserved carefully for the Welfare of Germany in  order to carry out the duties assigned  to  mc by Divine appointment."  Educational Film  Showing' the  Process   of Farming By, Means  of  Irrigation.  At fust glance the motion "picture  business may not seem to haVe very  much connection with agriculture,  except in so far as it tempts the farmer's sons and daughtcis into town  an extra evening ea'ch week, or sets  up in the mind of some boy well fitted to become a successful farmer an  ainbilioivto emulate Mr. C. Chaplin.  Bui the motion picture business is  now related very closely to all our  arts and industries. It "has become  a gical public educator as well as a  public entertainer, ' and the education is the more subtle, and pcihaps'  more effective, because the "student"  does not know he is being operated  upon. He thinks he is being entertained���������that is what he paid h:s  money for���������whereas he is being deliberately and with purpose aforethought made familiar with facts, industries or places of which he would  otherwise have little or no knowledge. - ' -  The demand for the educational  type of,film js one of the bright features in motion picture development.  Audiences may go '.wild over hilarious comedy, weep with injured heio-  incs, or be stirred lo fighting pitch by  great "dramatic spectacles, ��������� but the  normal appetite, soon tires of these  excesses. 'They arc all right as an  appetiser, but the picture, house  which wants the best class of trade  must give some solid food in the  form of travel pictures of foreign  countries, pictures of manufacturing  processes, animal life, or cuiious developments of the arts and sciences.  A United Slates producer is now-  engaged in getting up an educational  film showing the piocess of fanning  by means of iirigation. The general  public have certain ideas, more or  less correct, of how ordinary farming is conducted, but even farmers  themselves in humid districts, have  very vague notions of the practice  of irrigation. They have a general  idea that irrigation can be applied to  small orchard lots, but they cannot  see how Tt������-is possible over large  farms of wheat, coarse grains and . --  falfa. At the same lime, the interest in agiiculture, and the desire of  city people to get "back to the land,"  were never more pronounced, and  this astute producer has recognised  the fact that a film showing the actual processes of irrigation and the  great settlement possibilities which  arise from it will be an educational  feature of the first interest.  ��������� The place chosen to woik out the  details of the film" was the 3,000,000-  acrc Iirigation Block of the Canadian Pacific Railway in-Southern Alberta, and a camera expert has been  through that territory* recently getting the scenes from actual life. The  film will show the source of the  water, fn the great glacier fields in  the Canadian "Rockies above Lake  Louise. The fact that the water  cames from glaciers is of great importance, as it makes the water supply independent of rainfall, and there  js no danger of a shortage of water  in a particularly dry season. On the  contrary, the hotter the season the  greater will be the flow of water, and  this is the experience in Alberta,  where flood time in the rivers is not  in the spring, but in June and July,  when tfie snow fn the higher mountains is rapidly melting under the hot  sun.  From its source in the glaciers the  water will be followed down the  beautiful valleyof the Bow River,  through the thriving city of Calgary,  and thence by means of the necessary engineering features, right on to  the farmci's land. The piincipal engineering features lo be shown will  be the hcadgalcs at Calgary, where  water is diverted from' the western  section of the irrigation block. The  immense dam at Bassano, which  raises" the water to an available  height for irrigation in the western  section; /the reinforced concrete  aqueduct across ,i two-mile depression at Brooks, and'the enormous  artificial reservoir .which has been  christened Lake Newell. Glimpses  will be shown of.main and secondary  canals, until1 the water is seen in  ditches on the farmer's fields, and the  farmer, busy with shovel and canvas  dam, is shown diverting the life-giving flood over his fields of alfalfa and  grain. ��������� In the autumn the film will  be completed by scenes showing harvest operations, grain in the bin, alfalfa in Ihc stack, sleek dairy cows in  pastures kept ever green-by irrigation, and prosperous farm houses  where the monotony of the prairies  lias been broken by wind breaks and  hedges of trees which 'grow, up in a  few years as a result of the plentiful  supply  of water.  So the movies will become a powerful instrument to turn attention to  the open spaces, where by means -f  irrigation the uncertainty has been  largely removed from farm operations, and where happy and prosperous communities arc quickly arising  amid conditions as nearly ideal as  may be hoped for 'in'this world cf  imperfections.  HUN FIGHTING FORCE BEING RAPIDLY DEPLETED,  Estimated That Yearly Loss of Germany Since the Commence-  ,-ment of the War Has Been Four Times as Much as the   ' '  Annual Additions to the Army  Germany at last has reached the  turning point where her fighting  force is being depleted much more  rapidly than it can be supplied with  new men, and military observers believe her entire rescr\ cs, which cannot possibly exceed 700,000, will be  completely exhausted within a very  few mon I lis. Reduced lo figuics, Germany is losing 100,000 men a month  in killed, incapacitated by wounds  from further set vice and prisoners, or  1,200,000 a year. Some authorities  place the number at double these  figures. She is gaining from new recruits fewer than 400,000 a year. This  leaves a net loss to her army of 800,-  000 men a year, a loss which cannot  be replaced. '  Already Germany has called to the  colors   the   class   of   1917   to   furnish, _  stock for slaughter ��������� "kanonen-   spend    Your    Money    So    As,  To  fleisch" (meat for cannon), Bismarck      Make  Your  Home  Town  Grow*  used'to call them.  Germany's population in 1910 was  64,925,993; in 1900 it was 56,367,178,  showing, an increase of 8,558,815 in  the ten years. This does not include  a population of about 15,000,000 in  the German colonies in Africa and  Asia, which weflj immediately cutoff  on the beginning of the war from  being of any~use' to the mother country from the viewpoint of military  strength. The colonies of England,  France and Belgium, it may be mentioned, have, on the other hand, been  a souice-of constantly increasing additions to the military power of those  countnes. Germany's average increase in population (for the ten  years mentioned was a'bout 860,000.  There is a slight excess of male  births ��������� 1,060 boys to every 1,000  girls. This would give an average  increase of 443,000 males to 417,000  females. An estimated yearly addition of 400,000 men to the army outj  of 443,000 born is 'certainlj-- a very  liberal allowance.  _ Regarding losses the German official lists of casualties since the war  began up to June 1 give 734,412 dead,  1,851,652 wounded and 338,522 prisoners and missing, a total of 2,924,-  586 for the 22 months���������about 133,000  a month or 1,600,000 a year. -*-  This yearly gross loss is four  times as much a.s -the annual addition to the army by the most liberal  estimate. Assuming that forty per  cent, 'of the wounded return to the  ranks, this would reduce the net loss  to 1,200,000 a year, against an annual"]  recruitment of 400,000. Even if all  the wounded should return, the dead,  missing and prisoners (600,000) out-  numbei the new recruits half as much  With  a  net loss  of 800,000  men a-  Vnnn���������nCrmany's Prcsc"*' anny of  4,000,000 men would be exhausted in  nvc years if no other factor should  intervene. But while Germany's man  power is declining, that of the Allies  is growing. True, the French army  is losing though not so rapidly as  that of Germany, but the British  lorccs arc being constantly recruited  from a! quarters of the globe, and  Russia has practically "an inexhaustible supply. At the worst the Allies  can maintain ihcir present strength  while that of Germany is bound to  decline at an increasingly arithmetical  ratio. ,  ���������'ii?A^L  W  Sit  ,%The Larger Community'  SIpL  VSSS.  mm  :Mc''H*tiillr  The typical" ��������� characteristic of a  progressive town is a keen -.sense -of  the gains that may come from-the' v/ *-;*���������/"-/'  growth of a town as a whole., ��������� The-;-/;1-���������*������&&  people clearly see* that* if they .can-V, .*'&&&  make  their  town  and     its'   business':*-"���������* '-* '&������&  *    r*   ������,*X*>  the.

General Weber, commander of the  Austrian troops at Cctinjc, Montenegro, alleges that General Ratomir  Vcchovitch, former Minister of War  of Montenegro, fomented an insurrection and attacked Imperial soldiers, killing an Austrian officer sent  to shadow the said Minister.  For this act of war General Webor  "summons General Vcchovitch to  surrender himself as a prisoner with  in five days. Otherwise his father  and brother'; already arrested, will be  hanged." A warrant of arrest has  been issued against General Vcchovitch and his two brothers, and u reward of 50,000 crowns is offered for  their capture."  It is believed that they/arc. lii-lin.T  in the Albania 'Mountains;  _ As this is-, the'first "order" a! the  kind that has been promulgated since  the war began neutral powers Ivivo  been appealed to to point out to Austria the brutality of its Uircat.  ���������-*  r  again.  It also should be remembered"' that  these figures of 1,200,000 loss against  400,000 gain arc the most extreme  figures in favor of Germany. Even  the Geiman staff, in a statement issued last month, asserted that it was  assured of only "30,000 recruits a  month! as, long as the war lasted;"  which makes 360,000 a year, or 40,000  fewer than the number above allotted.  Concerning the strength of the  German army the Paris Libcrte estimates the total at 4,247,000, of which  there are 180 divisions of 20,000 men  each on both fronts and 647,000 left  as reserves. Swiss reports say that  tlic German reserves have diminished  tins year by 50,000 and the -200,000  recruits have been added, making a  net decrease of 300,000 men. All the  German reserves, according to the  Agcn_ia Libera," cannot exceed 700,-  000 men, whereas there were more  than a million . at the end of 1915.  Contrary to her hopes aroused by  the Balkan drive, GermaiW can expect no help from Bulgaria or Turkey. On the contrary, she has been  obliged to keep men in Turkey, in,  Bulgaria and in Austria.  Verdun is eating into Germany's  strength at a more rapid rate than  any other event since the .war began.  Col. Fcyler, a Swiss military expert,  generally recognized in Europe as  one of the most impartial and best  informed critics "of the war, estimates  that the Germans up to June 1 used  about 800,000 men at Verdun and puts  their losses at 350,000. The Paris  Petit Journal describes Verdun as  not a battle, but a surgical blood-j  letting on a grand scale, and says  that when the flow begins to slacken  another vein is opened.  One English observer is quoted as  saying of the slaughter here:  "M could -clearly sec through.my  field glasses the Germans moving  forward in mass formation. Suddenly  the French guns opened and mangled  humanity was piled in windrows. J  thought the battle ended, but soon  ai.other line in solid formation was  sent steadily forward and as they  started to pass over the piled up  heaps of their dead and dying comrades the French cannon again blazed and the pile of dead and dying  looked  a solid wall.  "I never had dreamed of such  slaughter, but the sight that followed I think no man ever before saw.  High explosive shells began blowing  into pieces the masses"* of dead and  dying. It seemed fiendish���������I wondered that the French .were so insatiate���������Avhen, horror of horrors, I  discovered that the high explosive  shells were from the German guns,  blasting the walls of dead and dying  that another line of German troops  might pass through and execute the  German order 'Forward!'"  British estimates place the German  losses at^crduii for four months at  415,000 men; that is, 65,000..more than  Colonel Feyler's estimate of 350,000  up to ' juiic 1. These estimates arc  based upon cantured. documents,  statements of pr-rsoners- and other  sources.

Canada's, War Expenditure  PS  Hill  mm  Ml  m  m  m  Si  llllll  is!!  '^���������'-���������''fyK^'''*'  Pit  S_gS|  Estimated    Total   ^Cost,      Including  Overseas  Forces,  Is  Million  a Day  According to an official statement  issued 'at Ottawa, the expenditure "of  the Dominion Government in Canada-  alone now exceeds $20,000,000 a  month, or about $700,000 a day. The  largest item fil this huge expenditure  is for pay and allowances, subsistence and assigned pay of the troops.  It is running at the rate of about $12,-  000,000 a month. This is, of course,  much more than^is paid to the  troops at present in Canada, who  number less than half the total Canadian'forces rlecruited for the war,  over 200,000 having gone over. The  pay of the overseas forces assigned  to their families and dependents here  and' separation allowances, also paid  here, constitute a very large portion  of the monthly, war expenditure.-The  sterling exchange situation has had  much" to do with bringing about "the  payment in Canada of so large a portion of the pay of ihc o\ crscas  forces.'  As nearly as can be estimated,  Canada's present war expenditure in  Canada and Britain, including the  maintenance of the troops actually at  the front, is at the rate of about $30,-  000,000 a month, or $350,000,000 a  ycaV. This averages about'$1,000,000  a day and is equivalent to about $1,-  000,000 per annum per head, as the  total enlistment is about 350,000 men.  Of these there are now in Canada  about, 140,000.  Out of the revenues of the Government for the year it now seems probable that a large amount of -the principal of the war expenditure'will .be  paid, as the budgets of 1915 and 1916  are both working out most satisfactorily. The balance of Canada's war  expenditure this year will be defrayed partly from the funds of the domestic war loan issued in November  last and from the war borrowings.  Parapet for Fresh Air.  Private Williams, who before the  war was a member of a London  News Agency staff, writes from  France: "There were some humors  in our relief of the French. We were  told that you could sit up on the parapet there without exciting the spleen  of the Boschc, and, according to  other accounts, possibly rather freely translated from the French, the  death-roll statistics showed that ���������as a  winter resort the, trench zone far surpassed the tranquil villages right behind  the line.

Fashion kindly comes to  the rescue, plenty ahead of time, too, with all  sorts of hats except straw even while the summer sun beats down in its fury. First she compromised with velvet crowns on straw brims  and a few velvet brims on straw crowns, but  now she offers you some hats which you can  .wear well into the fall.  Probably there is no time, outside of straw  hat time, when the feather turban is exactly  out, and for the woman who likes a small hat  these are decidedly smart. After the large  sailors of the summer one will enjoy setting a  close-fitting turban of plumage in peacock  colorings on one's head. To give both chic  and height there should be stiffened ends of  peacock blue velvet.  The porcupine hat fairly bristles with  style. It is fashioned out of quills stripped of  all but a' few; stiff fronds.   iThe crown of this  fetching hat is of rose satin to match the velour  coat with which it is worn.  Can anything be prettier than the mottled  plumage of the guinea, fowl? Here it is  mounted, wings and all, on a close-setting turban. There is no silk about this hat, for even  the crown is covered with the soft feathers.  Corbeau blue, or translated from the  French, raven's-wing blue, is the color of the  other feather-trimmed hat. Tiny overlapping  wings trim this feather-covered toque, starting  in coronet effect from the center front. A  blond girlwith blue eyes would be startlingly  attractive in a hat of this sort.  Panne velvet drapes gracefully.   Here it  is shpwn puffed on to a foundation of corded  silk in the same rich green.  A single pin, the  "favorite millinery trimming of the moment,  holds the drapings on the right side.

He was forced to  descend, however, in Poland and was  taken prisoner by the Geimans.  The official-communication given  out telling of Aviator Marchal's  achievement says:  "On Jane 20, at 9.30 o'clock: in the  evening, Sub-Lieut.

The tendency of legislative bodies  to pass laws setting the standard at  35 per cent, butter fat shows that it  is difficult to persuade many farmers  to set the separator to run a 35 per  cent, cream, oi  better.  The cieameryman, of course, is the  one most interested, because to keep  hi3 trade and get fair prices for his  product he must put out butter, and  he can make better butter with thick  cream than he can with thin cream.  the  Suitable Machines for  Quarter Section Farm  i  Whales Do Not Spout  i  iew American farmers have a defin  ���������itc"'idea    of the    different    nutrients  f) which    compose    the    feedstuff's    or  ���������their uses.

His mission was to  cross Germany at low altitude in  order to drop proclamations on; the  capital at Berlin and then to descend  in_ Russia.  "This audacious flight was accomplished, point by point, and after flying all night, Lieut. Marchal - was  compelled to descend at 8.30 o'clock  on the morning of, June 21 near  Chelm, Russian Poland, "at least one  hundred kilometres (62 miles) from  the Russian line. He was made prisoner. "*_  "The proclamation which Lieut.  Marchal -dropped on Berlin began  with the words:*.'We-could bombard  the open town oi- Berlin and thus  kill the.women and innocent' children,  but we are content td"lhrow pnly the  following proclamation,' etc." Lieut.  Marchal was interned."        '  Marchal was interned at Salzer-  bach; when he forwarded to France  a postal card, giving these facts:  ' "- '1_ was made-prisoner at eight  o'clock *on the morning, of the 21st  at Chelm. Officers did not believe  that I "had accomplished my task, but  the proof later arrived, and they were  obliged,to  bow1 to  the reality.  " 'It was the failure of the spark  plugs which stopped me, and I descended to change two of the plugs  and to start the motor again. Unfortunately, it would have been necessary to change two more plugs,  and at this moment I was taken prisoner. ,. You may judge of my chagrin.' -  -"Aviator Marchal, in the course of  his journey covered in continuous  flight a distance of about 1,300. kilometres (807 miles), most of which he  travelled during the night "  with  him  a  supply  of fuel  sufficient  practice     of  paying    a  cent  to   two  cents a pound more for cream testing over 35 per cent, than for cream  testing under th'at figure.  But from the standpoint of the  dairyman alone, it is to his advantage  to run the separator so as to get a  heavy cream. Perhaps the principal  reason is that it gives him more  skimming" for use on the farm, and  skimming is 'valuable for young  calves and pigs.     ,    -  With a thick cream he has less  weight\ to haul, but gets the same  money because there is just as 'much  butter fat.' He needs fewer utensils,  saving'labor in-washing and care of  the  wash-room.   - ,  And'finally, - it has been demonstrated that a thick'cream will' not  squr/so quickly as a-thin cream. -The  reason,--of'course,-'is that there i-  more*milk sugar in thin cream, and it  is the milk sugar that sours. In the  hot summer months k will be found  that a heavy cream can be cared for  and 'delivered to the creamery in a  better condition than a thin cream.  Tommy's   Needs   in  the  Trenches.  A    mass'of correspondence    from  British soldiers in the trenches is full  -of touches   of human interest.    One  "Tommy" is  solicitous about his appearance, especially in view of what  he hears  that any  day  that  "drive"  ' may be called for.      "I would like,"  he writes, ".to enter it as I would go  to church Send me a razor."  Another soldier shows how he ex-  .pends some  of his native anger.

While the Channel _tunnel project  is being revived in England, the question is being earnestly discussed in  France. Albert Montiere, .chief engineer- of the Chemin^De Fer Du  Nord, recently lectured in -favor of  the international tube before the So-  ciete Des Ingenieures Civils, in Paris.  'With this tunnel, the lecturer said,  the British troops and their supplies  could be rapidly * and economically  transported under the channel without the- least fear of" enemy submarines. This would liberate part of. the  flcefV'ahd restore to the 'merchant  marine a great number of its units.  The advantages would - be incalculable.  After the war, he declared, when  commercial expansion would be renewed on each side, the Allies would  have to be solidly united to maintain their supremacy, the tunnel  would acquire prime-importance.  Germans Buy Milch Goats.  A number of German cities have  taken practical-*, steps1 to solve the  milk problem, which still is very serious in the -large centres of population. ' Twelve of the largest Prussian  municipalities have bought 75,000  goats in Switzerland. The animals  'have been turned over to the owners  pf small farms, in the suburbs of the  cities on conditions that they, deliver  seventy per cent .of the milk obtained from the goats to the relief-stations, where it is": distributed among  poor .families with .small children.  The goats furnish 200,000 quarts of  milk a day. '--- ...  ��������� Military rifles drive their bullets at  speeds of 2,000 to 3,000 feet per second.

"My brother in the trenches," said  a French chef of Milwaukee, "writes  me a little anecdote about General  Joffre, the generalissimo, you know.  "Our brave Joffre was examining  a map while under fire. The map  was held by a young subaltern, a  boy of 16 from a military school of  St. Cyr. Bang! S-s-t! went the mar-  mites and Jack Johnsons and whistling-Willies���������for so they call those  shells, you know���������and the boy could  not help starling and trembling as  he held the map, and this lost our  brave Joffre his place.  "The generalissimo was vexed  when he lost his place three or four  times, and he said to the boy soldier:  " 'Voila, you. are too. conceited,  dodging the shells like that! Do you  suppose the Bodies aim those expensive shells at you? You are only  a little boy soldier. Do you take  yourself for a cathedral?'"  Tack    Philosophy.  - A thing is tragic' or humorous according to the point of view. -The  man . who sits on a tack does not  share the onlookers' amusement. In  fact, - he is not only pained because  he occasioned someone else to find  a degree of pleasure in his unseemly  plight.    - , ���������"���������     -  Now it is perfectly safe to make  this positive statement in this connection: The person who witnessed  the other's unfortunate encounter  with the tack "never deliberately sits  on the same tack himself; in fact, he  is particularly cautious about sitting  down > anywhere, soon ' thereafter  without.looking for ajtack.   -   *    .    ,.  Nor is this an indictment of tacks."  Tacks serve a very real, and useful  purpose in this world, but they have  their place, which is not in localities where they may be sat upon.���������  William C. Lengel, in the Hoggosoii  Magazine.  Great Britain Leads the World.  Great Britain, although --hampered  by the drain of war and a-big naval  construction programme, still leads  the-world in building merchantmen,  according -to -a statement issued by  the United. States .Bureau of Navigation.  Her    shipyards have under   actual  construction  now 423 steel ^merchant,  ships of 1,423,335 tonnage, and ' would!  have more but for the fact that private   yards   are  engaged, in' building  war vessels.  . The entire world in 1915 launched  743 merchant ships of 1,201,638 tonnage.    New Anti-Aircraft Cannon.  An anti-aircraft gun, the first to be  used by the United States Navy, will  supplement the armament of all the  battleships and a number of designated cruisers, it is announced from"  Washington.  The battleships Pennsylvania and  Nevada already have been equipped  with these guns, and eighteen other  ships and cruisers are to be fitted  out as rapidly as they are available  for navy yard work.  The new detence weapon is the result of a three-year experiment by  the navy experts of the Bureau of  Ordnance. It consists of a machine  rifle capable of hurling a three-inch  shell 27,000 feet into the air at an  angleof ninety degrees, and can deliver its charge at rapid fire rate.  Machines for a 160-acro farm,  .which require considerable thought  In purchasing, are the plow, the  grain drill, disc, harrow and roller.  A 12 or 13- Inch gang plow will require 4 or 6 horses, depending upon  the condition of soil and the-depth  of plowing.  One operator with 4 horses can do  almost the same amount of work  that two man with S horses with a  sulky plow can do. The particular  type of mouldboard to purchase de-  ponds somewhat upon the type of  soil; ordinarily what is known as a  "general-purpose" mouldboaid will  be satisfactory. If theie is very  much heavy sod to be plowed it may  bo necessary to secure a sod typo  of mouldboard, which could be-used  as an extra for the regular plow. If  mechanical power Is to be used a  14-Inch 2 or 3-bottom plaw will perhaps be a better size. The disc  type of plow Is not adapted to many  types of soil.. In some of the light  sandy soil of the south and southwest it is a very popular type.  A 12 or-14-foot drill will require.  4 horses and will enable the operators  to do the maximum  of. work  and at,the same time to put in the  small   grain   In   the   best    possible  shape.   In selecting a drill there are  two types to consider; ' one-   type,  'known as the fluted, force feed, depends upon the size of the opening-  admitting  the  seed,   while   in   -the  other, known as the' internal - feed,  the speed of the feeding apparatus  is changed for varying amounts to .  be sown, and two different sizes.of  cups���������one  for large  grain and the  other for small seed:     For sowing ~  grains, ranging in size from cowpeas  and soybeans to wheat, the second^  type will give a more even distribu- ���������  tion of seed    with    less 'danger of '  cracking the kernels.  The tandem dfso is popular, the  advantage being that one can pulverize the ground at 'one" operation  and, at the same time, not leave any  ridges or hollows. The tandem'diso  having the cut-away diso for the *.  front and full circle for the rear will.  meet average conditions. -The best  size is 16 inches, for this size gives -.  the greatest pulverization with" the  least draft. A 14-inch disc will pulverize the ground to a greater extent but will pull harder -for- the  work done. An 18-inch disc will pull  easier but will not pulverize the soil  so well as a 16-inch.  For medium, light soil, rather free  from weeds, the spike tooth-harrow  of 3 or 4 sections is the most serviceable. For heavier soils, where greater pulverization is ' desired,, the  spring-tooth' harrow will do better  work, but will require*,'more power.  One horse per section of harrow will  furnish the power. One. i_.an with  a 4-section harrow can harrow 40  acres per day with a riding attachment.  The corrugated ^roller type of rol-  **l9r is to be preferred tp the smooth  sirface steel or/iog roller. The corrugated type will not "compact the  surface soil so much as '''-���������e smooth  type. It will, however, leave a-better surface mulch and thereby conserve the moisture.- ~;It will also  mash the clods rather than push  them into th_ ground, as is the case  with; a smooth roller type.  There are many points of operation in all farm machinery that have  much to do with the success of farm,  ing. With tLe introduction of the  lightweight tractor, larger problems  of operations are envolved which  should be considered by the farmer  just beginning to purchase his equipment.���������Prof. F. M; White, in Breeders' Gazette.  What Comes From Cetacean's Blowhole   Is . Steam.  Since a whale breathes air, when  it is below the surface the breath  must be held, for if water should be  taken into the lungs the animal  would drown. Thus as soon as a  cetacean comes to the surface its  breath is expelled and a fresh supply  inhaled before it again goes down.  The breath, which has been held  in the lungs for a considerable time  under pressure, is highly heated, and  as it is forcibly expelled into the  colder outer air, it condenses, forming a column of steam. A similar  effect may be produced by any person if on a frosty morning the breath  is   suddenly  blown  from  the   mouth.

I do not suppose that he would care to answer  such a question. . Nor is there any  need for him to do so. It has already been answered repeatedly by  Mr. Asquith.

Since then several  other islands have been "born" in  various parts of. the Aleutian chain,  and are now the shore homes of sea  lions  and  sharks.  What .We Need in Food.  Calcium, phosphorus and iron are  more likely than any other minor nutriments to be lacking in human dietaries. On this account especial interest attaches to their occurrence in  food.  Calcium is especially abundant in  milk, and is also contained in considerable quantities in eggs, vegetables, and fruits.  Phosphorus is abundant ��������� in milk,  eggs, nuts, peas, beans, and such cereal products as contain the outer  seed coats.  Iron is found in largest quantities in  beef, eggs, beans, peas, green vegetables (especially spinach), and in the  outer seed coats of the cereals.  The foods which are poorest in minerals are polished rice, pearl hominy,  white flour, bolted corn meal, and  other cereal foods which lack the  outer seed coats.���������From the New  York Daily Telegram.

At marketing time a sheep  feeder will find it a mighty good  thing if he has so tried, because a  sheep that will lead the rest of the  band into a car is a great help when  not much time can be spared and the  work must be carried on with the  "least trouble in order to conserve  weighjt.  There are different ways of training sheep to lead. The most popular  is to have a few round the barnyard  as pets. They will soon become acquainted and in a short while will  follow a person round the place. This  is one-way to teach a sheep to follow  the shipper into the chute and the  car; the others will follow, which  will save considerable driving ana  pushing on 'loading day. Some owners train one sheep or more to lead  to a halter, and in this manner they  are enabled to get the drove of  sheep into the car with very little  trouble.

Ample means are to be provided in  the near future by the Iowa Experiment Station for the giving of instructions in the slaughtering of farm  animals and the curing of meats. A  modern abattoir is to be constructed  and it. will be operated in such a  way as to encourage the local killing and packing of meats. It Is expected that,this innovation will lead,  in the near future, to the establishment of small packing-house plants  in those regions where the raising  of meat animals is the main industry of the farms. In this instance  it* will cost $50,000, but it must be ���������  remembered that provision will be  made in this structure for instructional work, thereby making the  building more costly than would be  the case where the slauhgter of animals and the packing of meats are  carried alone.

' . ���������  When Flying Machines. Are - Common  If all reports are true, some automobile manufacturers are giving considerable thought to aviation, and#   a-  few are actively engaged in  building  aviation motors.  Farmers are of a class in the best  position to make use of flying machines. Contrary to general opinion,  flying in a well-built aeioplane is sate.  Statistics show but few accidents and  these are, for the most part, caa_ed  by caielessness, or lack of knowledge  of the principles of "flight."  The modern aeroplane has a factor  ofsaiety of about eight, which, roughly: translated, means that it is about  eight times as strong as necessary.  '���������-���������Flying machines are today beyond  the";: reach of all but a favored few,  but" so, too, were motor cars a few  years back. There seems to be no  logical reason why the aeroplane  should not follow in~the footsteps of  its land brother, the automobile,  which in ten short years, has become  the- servant of the masses; not just  the toy of the rich. What has brought  about this change? Simply building  automobiles in quantities. Today a  better car can be bought for one  thousand dollars than three thousand  would buy five yeais ago.  Who -will be the first to adapt these  principles to aeroplanes? He who  does will find himself established as  the "Ford" of the flying world.  ���������*.������������������-,  *> '-."vfc  ���������.���������sv***  -'?*vj-  J>"#  There are now a thousand miles  of railroads in Korea, and the Koreans, instead of sleeping on the  tracks and breaking their heads by  knocking them against the glass windows, consider the cars their best  friends.

Mabin Wrest knocked at the door  of the city office indicated in' the ''.advertisement, cut out of a daily paper,  which she held in her hand.  She was a pretty girl with grey  eyes, hair which admirers said was  golden, and girls said was "neither  the one. thing nor the other," and a  slight, girlish figure. She was of the  middle height, and she would have  known how to dress well if she had  had  a  little  more  money.  As it was, she was always "neat,"  which is as much as you can expect  of the daughter of a barrister who  died before he had had time to make  much   money.  Airs. Wrest, Mabin's mother, was a  very superior person, though you  -would never have guessed it to look at  her. She came of a family which  spread its ramifications throughout  r-lhc British aritocracy, but which had  a convenient knack of ignoring'those  members of it who had changed their  names by marriage and so shut  themselves out from the family advantages.  Mabin. was modern enough not lo  care to live a wholly domestic life in  Jier mother's small home in the neighborhood of Maida Vale, so, having  mastered the ablruse science of typewriting,' she had stolen out without  saying anything about it to Mama, to  answer the advertisement of a stockbroker who wanted a typist.  She was quite new lo the business,  and very shy when once outside the  home walls, though, within thctn, and  when talking lo her mother about the  advantages of earning one's own living, you would have thought her as  bold as brass.  Moreover, she was twenty, which,  after all, is a ripe age at which to begin  the world.  ��������� Nobody came to the door of the of-1  fiee,  although  she could  hear sounds  from within.    So  presently she opened  the  door a very little and peeped  '"-., ... . -  The  offices  consisted  of a suite of  three tiny, dusty "rooms, and by putting her head round the first door,  she could see right through the second room to third, where a very  young man, who was also very short,  very thin, and very ugly, was practising golf strokes with a cheap wagling  Mick and a tightly rollcd-up ball'iv.ade  cf newspaper.  He looked up and said "Hallo!"  when he saw a human girl at the  other end of-the suite, and, dropping  the stick hastily, came through to her,  with a smirk suitable to the occasion.  "Is tliqrc anything I can do for you,  A BRIGHT TOBACCO OF THE FINEST QUALITY  and she distinguished that of the  clcrk,-,.aiid heard him invite'someone  to lake a seat.  By this time the clerk and the  owner of Ihc second voice were in the  room next to that in which Mabin  was sitting, and 'she,,could distinguish  the words uttered by both.  "Thanks," said the owner of the  second voice.    "I'll'wait here, then."  Mabin was struck by the tones of  this voice���������deep, :full, pleasant, the  voice of a young mail. She was quite  interested in its unseen possessor, and  amused herself���������having exhausted the  attractions of the Sporting and Dramatic News, in wondering whai he  was like.  And she decided, without hesitation,  that he was good-humored, cheerful,  and various pthcr.'uic'c things.  In. the meantime the clerk had shut  himself in the outer office, leaving the  unseen stranger in the middle room,  and' there was silence, but for the  sound of the crumpling of the newspaper  which  he was reading.  Then he appeared to grow restless,  lie walked about the room, he whistled, he began to sing a song, in a  language which Mabin did not understand, but which she thought must be  Spanish. -  She, on her side, was being slowly  asphyxiated, for she did not like to  come out and face the stranger on  her way to ask the clerk to switch  off the current from the stove.

Three years ago iii" one of the  eastern provinces a farmer's-wife decided that she was going to have an  income of her own apart and independent of all masculine interference.  She looked about for an oppoi lun-  ilyr where energy and brains could be  converted into cash and finally decided to try chickens.  Of course hens were not strangers  on-that farm. A dozen or so were always to be seen scratching about the  yard or the garden. They were a  nondescript lot, of various colors,  ages and sizes.    Each hen hustled for  10 CENTS PER PLUG  The Control of Weecis Why Aren't You Happy!  There  Is  No   Easy  Way to  Get the  Best  o;   Weeds  Weeds are the robbers of the plant  world. They creep into the fields and  rob the plants of moisture, light and  plant food.  '  They often crowd out good clovers  and grasses in our meadows and pastures.  Every farm boy should learn the  names and habits of all the common  weeds. Whenever one is found that  looks as if it might prove mischievous it should be promptly identified.  If nobody on the farm can do so. it  should be sent away either to the  Dominion Agricultural .Department at  Ottawa, or to the Agricultural" Department of the Family Herald for  identification and information concerning its control.

No, not here;  "in the inner office.    This way!"  He led her through the outer room  to the second, which ''was a little larger and quite dusty. Here he;paused,  for one moment, and Mabin had time  to look around: to see the typewriter  standing in a corner on a table, and  to note that there Were two chairs,  one on each -side of a wide writing  table, indicating, apparently, that it  was in this room that clients were  received. .'-.'���������������������������''.

"But if you  likcy'.I could lake down particulars,  and you. could ca'll again."  "If he won't be very long, I think  I'd "rather, wait and see him now/''  said Mabin, whose courage was oozing out of her, an'd who felt.sure that,  if she once retired, she would never  be able to find courage enough i'o  thread the dark passages of the C'ily  warren  again.  "Very well, miss! If you'll come  in here, it'll be more comfortable for  you."  lie showed her into the third room,  which was not much more than a  very large cupboard, but which was  carpeted, and contained, besides a  couple of armchairs, a small sideboard covered wilh cigar boxes, and  some hanging book-shelves with  sporting books. There was also a  side-table, with a gun-case and some  clothes.  The clerk switched on the electric  stove, begged the young lady to take,  a chair, handed her the current number of the Sporting and Dramatic  News, and disappeared.  Mabin seated herself in  one of the  armchairs, and warmed her hands.    It  was  a  chilly  October day,   dark and  cold and Windy.    Through  the dusty  windows of the small room very little  light  came,  and  the  atmosphere,  oppressive    with   .stale    tobacco-smoke,  soon' became stifling. '    She    thought  she  would go  out and ask  the  clerk  to  open   the  window  or at  least    to  switch off the current from the stove;  but before she had decided to do this  she heard  voices  in  the outer office,  and, expecting'each  moment.to have  the door opened and to find herself in  the presence of Mr.' Fryer, she waited.  But  no one  came in.  Presently   the  voices   came   nearer.  down to the floor with a crash.  At  that,  the  door  was  opened  and  a head was thrust into the room.  Such a head! '  Mabin,   blushing  and    angry     with  herself,   saw a   soft   fell  hat,   wide  in  Ihc^brim and  squashy as  to     crown.  Then the hat came off quickly,,   and  I she saw the owner of the voice:  I    Before he spoke she knew that he  and   the   voice   belonged  to   one    another���������they fitted each other exactly.  ��������� For   the  head   was   that  of  a   man,  long past  his boyhood, but  undoubt-  edlv.youiig,. with a ruddy complexion,  a voluminous  fair beard, a  long and  wandering  fair  moustache,''a look of  sunny  good, temper  at  the  .-moment  clouded   with  impatience,  and  a  pair  of twinkling blue eyes of unspeakable  charm,  "What   the .     Oh,   I   beg    your  pardon!*' - '  This was what, he .said as-he took  off his soft hat and stood in the-door-  way.  Angry with herself, flushed, covered wilh dust, Mabin was struggling  back into the middle.of the lloor, over  the ���������.Tattered books and papers.  "I'.was trying to open tlic Window,"  she   explained.     "It's-���������it's���������awful .   in/  here."  "Allow- me."  He came in, and Mabin saw that  he was of fair height, broad-shouldered, dressed in clothes ���������which had certainly not .been* made'iii England.  There was about him, too, a certain [.cold  air of being- in ��������� unaccustomed" sur-  roudings, which accentuated the effect  made- by '.his beard and the unusual  length of his hair. These things gave  him a slight air of; savagery, which  was not marked-chough, to be other  than attractive. And at the same  time, the tones of his voice suggested  both good breeding and-refinement in  no common degree.  (To   be   continued) W  . The War and French Industries.

Il was picparcd by T. *Rcg. Arkcll,  Chief of the Sheep and Goal Division  of the Bianch. The attendants in  charge are G. McCiimmon, assisted  by T.  W. Scxsmith.  'The object of the exhibit is to explain fully the various classifications  and grades, and to show how wool  may be handled in such a way as to  secure the best advantages to both the  producer and buyer. In order to command the highest ^market'prices wool  should be presented in a carefully rolled" and packed condition and should  contain as little foreign mailers as  possible. Carelessness in the preparation of Canadian- wools has resulted  in an injury to their reputation upon  the markets of the world. Endeavoring to overcome these conditions by  aiding' the wool growers of Canada  lo place upon the market a high grade  pioduct'and also to stimulatcsan increased interest in Sheep Husbandry,  and to further as far as possible th'is  profitable phase of agiiculturc the  Live Slock Branch offers this exhibit  to the public.  One of the most interesting'and instructive features comprises samples  of-wool in both the greasy and scoured condition, showing the injurious  effects^ of using insoluble paints,  which arc difficult to remove, rather  than the slandaid dippini fluids for  maiking purposes. This case also  contains samples 'of .wool that have  been tied with binder twin, showing  how the sisal fibre becomes incorporated into the wool and the consequent defect this produces in the finished product. The injuiious effects  of sheering wool while damp, or permitting it to become damp while in  the storage arc shown, together with  the damage caused by the incorporation -of straw and chaft into the  fleece  Two larcfc cases contain representative fleeces of the most important  breeds of Canadian sheep. In these  cases beginners arc given an opportunity to compaic the wool of the different biceds, and thus become acquainted with the average weight of  fleece and quality of wool -obtained  from each. One large case contains  fleeces "of Canadian wool lcprcscnl-  ing the different classes as they are  graded for the market.  <������ The processes of woolen and worsted manufacture arc illustrated by  samples representing the intermediate  pioducts fiom the wool in the grease  to the finished cloth.

Much ill-judged criticism of England's part in the war would never  have been muttered had the critics  taken the pains to acquaint ' themselves with the facts. In the ' first  place, the most obvious sphere / of  English actions at the beginning", of  the conflict was the sea. Her army  was small in comparison with the armies of her neighbors, but she had a  powerful navy, and it had been, fortunately, mobilized in home waters.  Thus it was able to shut the German  fleet in its own ports, to drive German commerce from the ocean, and  to insure the safe transport of troops.  The last-named task was so essential  in the success of the allied operations  on land that il is no exaggeration to  say that its fulfilment averted an irrc-'  parable disaster.  More than she did then England  could not have been expected to do.  She had neither the men nor the munitions. Thus the burden of the  "fight on the west front inevitably fell  on France. That was her allotted  duly, and nobly has she performed it.

Grant Morden, of  the Canada Steamship" Lines, set up a  new record on her last trip down the  lake, when she cleared from Port  Arthur with " 490,725 2-3 bushels of  wheat.  Captain Neil Campbell received the  entire consignment from the Canadian Northern elevator at Port Arthur. The cereal tiansportcd on the  "Morden" would be equivalent lo ten  trains of fifty cars of wheat each, and  the cargo weighed in ihc vicinity of  15,000 tons.  This is said by shipping men lo constitute a record-breaking performance.  The laigest shipment handled previously, it is asserted, ,was by the  "Snydcrjr.," when 470,000 bushels of  wheat was carried. The "Snyder,"  however, is an American vessel.

An economic victory would mean nothing but  a renewal of'the contest at a later  date. What must'be crushed, if Europe is ever again to know security,  is not the stomachs of, the German  people, but their belief in the invincibility of their 'own arms. If Germany surrenders today as the result  of domestic famine, what would be  the.spirit in which her people entered upon peace? They would say, and  with some justice: "We nearly took  Paris, and we hold the best industrial  districts of France, we have run Russia out of Poland, crushed Serbia and  Belgium, and hacked our way to the  near East. All we have to do next  lime to'win is to ensure our own food  supply for a three years' war���������and  that can.be easily done."  "Scribbles is a- Freethinker, is he  not?"
