The Result of the provincial elections was not a very 1  great surprise in so far as the defeat of the Bowser com-:  bination was concerned, but no one expected so . great, *a  turnover.    Few Conservatives will"regret the exit of Mr  Bowser and the  "heelers."    The   Conservative   party  in i  the  Dominion profited through the reverses of 1873 and  1896, and it will profit by getting rid of the Bowser die,  tatorship.    The.  Conservatives of the  province  will reorganize and choose a leader who is acceptable to the i  whole party.    Before a.year has passed the heelers will all  be Liberals,  where  they are more at home, because more  welcome.    Mr. Bowser made the mistake of believing the  "part was greater than the whole," or that the members'of  of the legislature represented  the people  of British Co-  Columbia.    Mr, Shatford was one of the few members reelected; not ..because he was a supporter of Mr. Bowser  but because he was L.  W. Shatford.-  The returns ;grv^  32 Liberals, and 15 Bowserites.

R. station in Toronto  Boy Scout Movement  Valuable    Work Done    by the    Boy  Scouts in Connection With the War  It has been no small  part that the  Boy  Scouts have  played  in  this  war.  From   spying  out   enemy   cruisers   to  digging potatoes, they have a fine record of useful and    spirited    service.  Their efforts.to aid the Empire in this  lime of stress and strain will long be  remembered.    Boy Scouts in England  are   loading  vans,   collecting   parcels,  i wheeling trolleys, and helping to sort  the enormous mass of correspondence  which Lancashire, Cheshire anel Yorkshire arc sending to the troops. To be  custodians of the soldiers'  mails is a  very  thrilling and  important    matter,  and, of course, the Uoy Scouts arc doing their work well.   The cream of the  work, from the Scouts' point of view,  has been the patrolling of parts of the  cast   coast.    Scouts  arc  also   playing  the role of agriculturist and munition  worker to perfection and lo their own  advantage.    They arc developing the  power of initiative    and   resourcefulness   which   is  so-necessary  in  every  phase of life.       -/  The Boy Scouts of America is a  brother organization of the Boy  Scouts Association which came into  existence in 1913. The aims and purposes of the Boy Scouts of American  organization arc essentially the same  as those of the Boy Scouts Association. As an organization it is not  military in thought form or spirit, although il does instil in boys the military virtues such as honor, loyally,  obedience ntul patriotism. The uniform, the patrol, the troop and the  drill arc not for military tactics; they  arc for the unity, the harmony and  the rhythm of spirit that boys learn  in scouting. Jt is in the wearing of  the uniform and doing of things together as Scouts that they absorb the  force and truth of the Scout Law,  which states: "A Scout is a friend of  all, and a brother to every other  Scout."  The Boy Scouts of America' organization has enjoyed rapid growth  since its inception not cputc six years  ago. At present it has over 150,000  registered Seoul-., in addition to more  than 200,000 who arc practising Scouting but who are not registered. The  organization has over 9,000 Scoutmasters and    Assistant Scoutmasters.  GOOD RICH BLOOD  MEANSJM0D HEALTH  Just a  Little   More   Rich, Red  Blood Cures Most Ailments  has  been   leased  lo   the  City  for  the' Therc^arc  about  360   Commissioners  nominal rate of $1 per annum. The  new north end station is now in full  operation and, with its modern facilities and accessories, is giving great  satisfaction to rl.c public. The district in which it is situated has grown  enormously during the past few years.  The C. P. R. believes, not only in accommodating present needs, but in  anticipating* those of the future. That  is why il builds largely and substantially in'all large centres of population, where there is promise of growth  anel development. What with the north  end station in Toronto and the new  station and terminal- on Fro.T* street,  which will be finished next year, Toronto is being rewarded al last, with  that attention which seems to have  been denied the Queen city for many  vears.  Professor Lounsbury of Yale is a  foe lo the purist and pedant. On his  summer holiday the professor gazed  out across the lake one grey and sultry afternoon.' and remarked:  "It looks Hkc rain."  A pedant was seated in a rocking  chair nearby.  "What looks like rain, professor?"  he chuckled. "Ha, ha! I've go'l you  there.    What looks like rain?"  "Water," Professor Lounsbury answered, coldly.  Scarcity of feed and low prices for  poultry in the fall of 191-1 caused a  thinning out in flocks in Manitoba,  and this reduction was not made good  last year. As a result Manitoba's egg  production was less last spring than  it was two years ago.  Better Authority���������"Il was Shakespeare, wasn't it, who said: 'Sweet arc  the uses of adversity'?''

This combination gives it a distinctive,  " delicious flavour unknown to foods made  from wheat alone.  Only selected grain is  used in making Grape-  Nuts and through skillful  processing it comes from  the package fresh, crisp,  untouched by hand and  ready to eat.  Throrgi long baking,  the energy - producing  starches of. the grain are  made wonderfully easy  of digestion.  A daily ration of this  splendid food yields a  marvellous return of  health and comfort.  "There's a Reason"  Sold by Grocers everywhere  and 4,350 members of local councils.  The American public has come to  know something of the value of the  movement. Such demonstrations as  were given during the Gettysburg reunion, the Ohio flood, the Baltimore  centennial and the St. Louis pageant  and scores of similar events where  real service was given by Boy Scouts,  have impressed thinking men and women through the country with the  fact'that Scouting is not merely play,  but a very important programme for  training and making use of the boy-  hooel of the country for its welfare.  Judge Albion C. Blair of Portsmouth,  has. said: "The Boy Scouts arc the  one asset,of the city above all others  'that must be encouraged and given a  proper chance to "develop. As Jrcsc  boys progress so will Portsmouth progress, not only today but in years to  come."  Encouraging* progress was reported  at the first annual mcctingof the Saskatchewan Provincial Boy Scouts  Council, which was held recently in  Rcgina. The report of the secretary,  Mr. Frank C. Irwin, showed that on  May 15, 1916, 1,492 men and boys  were actively engaged in Scouting in  the province and 1,364 boys were under instruction. Alorc than 125 carefully selected, clean men of strong  character were given leadership as  Scout Commissioners, Scoutmasters,  Assistant Scoutmasters and Instructors. This was an increase of 64.13  per cent, over the enrolment of June  30, 1915, when there was a total membership of nine hundred and nine. At  present there arc 69 Boy Scout troops  in the province and this figure docs  not include two very live packs of  Wolf Cubs, (junior Scouts). All these  arc led by men who are giving then-  service without compensation because  of their belief in Scouting as a programme for the development of character and good citizenship in boys.  Officials high up in the. ranks of  the Boy Scouts Association arc convinced that the organization is so  thoroughly establish eel thatany temporary set-backs which is might sustain during the war will,not serve to  do it any great injury. This phase  of the matter was dealt with by Sir  Robert Baden-Powell is a recent letter to the Honorary Dominion Sccrc  The lack  of    sufficient    rich,    red  blood does not end merely in a pale  complexion.      It  is  much  more  serious.    Bloodies people arc tired, languid,  run-down  folk  who  do  not  enjoy life.

Preparedness   for Farmers  A Matter to Which Farmers of Canada Should Give Necessary  Attention  Hard times and debt are the farmer's greatest enemies. Growing food  for the family and feed for the live  slock arc his best form of preparedness against these evils. In the war  for prosperity good gardens, fresh  eggs, milk and butter, home raised  ham, plenty of grain and hay,���������these  arc the weapons to use against the foe  if success is to be obtained. The best  managed farm requires tliat' the farmer shall not buy food stuffs cither  for his family or his live stock. By  proper preparedness methods, eggs  will be provided for, eyen when the  hens are not laying; fruit and vegetables will be in cans on the closet  shelves wjicn they arc not in the garden; thcre.'will be canned meat, smoked mcat^pr pickled meat, when fresh  mcal^ei^not available and the silo will  afford succulent feed for the stock  when there is none in the fields.  A well balanced farm business insures against losses and provides a  much better utilization of the labor  and equipment. The matter of preparedness is one to which Canadian  farmers should give increasing attention, iu more senses than one.���������Montreal Family, Herald.

Garget in  Railroad Men Enlist  Alcohol as Fuel  Chemist Suggests Use for Distilleries  in Prohibitioi. Towns  p*"  - In view of the fact that the Western provinces have adopted prohibition the question naturally arises as  to what will become of some of the  extensive breweries and distilling  plants' iu  Canada.  A former principal of Rcgina College suggests that these plants be  equipped for the manufacture of commercial alcohol. The project is put  forward by one who is by profession  an analytical chcmisi. and has given  much thought to the possible uses to  which these plants might be put after  prohibition becomes effective. Vic has  also suggested vinegar production,  pickling, canning* and cold storage.

In England over 200,000 railway men arc at the front; in Canada,  possibly 6,000 in all have gone forward���������a splendid record considering  our railways anel general population.

It is urged  in England that the women wear  men's attire for greater convenience  in many of the avocations they pursue. Many have not waited for the  discussion in the press ancnt the matter, but have voluntarily parted with  external feminity.

The Bayard of the Turks  Turkish Commander Who Has Shown  Himself to be a'Gentleman ,  Apart from the courage and persistence with 'which Ihc defence of  Km was conducted by Gc-ncral  Townshcnd, the most notable feature  of the siege has undoubtedly been the  chivalrous attitude of the Turkish  commander, Nur-cd-Dcn.- The many  stories which have been told of him  may be apocryphal, but they appear  to be founded on some basis_,of fact.  At one lime he was said lo have proposed a truce while the Turks and  English might together attack the  .marauding Arabs who have played  havoc among the forces of either side  and have behaved with incredible brutality to those wounded who have fallen into their hands. On another occasion he was reported lo have driven  a herd of cattle into the bcleagured  town. These and similar tales may be  untrue, but they illustrate the character of a man against whom his enemies have said nothing bitter. Like  Nazim Pasha aud other Turkish soldiers of the old school, Nur-cd-Din  has shown himself a gentleman and a  sportsman, ahd the readiness with  which he,has handed over al.l the sick  anel wounded .will ever be remembered to his credit. He has displayed  hone, of the vice- of his German allies,  but has fought cleanly and honorably,  anel so far as possible has endeavored  to restrain the Arabs, fearlessly punishing those who have been caught  disobeying orders.��������� The Times of  India.   ,  Manitoba's Fish  Sores Heal Quickly.���������Have you a  persistent sore that- refuses to heal?

A Hero of France  l(  & Visible Symbol of All That France  Has Suffered in the War  But il is General Gouraud who  more than anyone else perhaps has  touched the sentiment and the imagination of the army.

In Gallipoli he lost  his right arm and had both legs broken, and as he limps rapklly along the  parade, leaning heavily upon*a stick,  he looks like the visible symbol of  all that France has suffered in these  tremendous days. But much more  than the physical 'appeal is the spiritual appeal of a personality of extraordinary sweetness and strength that  looks out through the bluest eyes I  have seen with a candor, a comprehension, and a sympathy that are  strangely moving.- "I seem to sec all  Africa in those wonderful eyes," said  a French officer to mc, referring to  the fact that it was in Maurctania  and Morocco that Gouraud made his  rcputatiton.

The manager of a  big department  \ store is having every employee   take  swimming    lessons   before     the  employee is  permitted   to  have  a vacation.    There's a  sensible .'d.a.      But  excellent as   making  people  learn   ,o  swim is, it suras to us to be a more  excellent thing not to allow -hem   to  learn to swim too well.    Mr. Dalton,  a  "crack"  himself,   says:     "It is  the  crack swimmer that goes down.   He  takes  too    many    chances.      In the  ���������;>     death of that little Miss Hoc the other  \ day there arc several lessons. Do not  ' play  at  wanting    help.     Do  not run  risks.    Do not enter contests..

Jewish Trade in New York Takes 10,-  000 Head Weekly  The demand for pure bred cattle  is increasing rather than diminishing,  anel many were the sales at both  Calgary and Edmonton. In fact the  demand goes on all the lime. In ten  davs the finn ci" Yule and Bowes  sold nearly $7,000 worth of pure  bred shorthorns. Eleven head went  to T. B. Ralph, Eluora, Alta., and  .twelve to George' Field, of Hulton.  Field is a new beginner and has  chosen shorthorns with which to try  his luck. Three head went lo G. W.  Gillcs of Gadsbury, Alta. One six  months old bull brought $400 and  the 2-ycar-old bull, less , fancifully  bred, $500. The Glefigarnock Aberdeen herd sold several head also at  very fancy prices. ���������  Hon. Duncan Marshall has brought  into Alberta 74 head of choicely bred  Shorthorns, among! them, King ,of  Diamonds, a son of Gainsford Marquis. This bull is 3 years old-and  his dam was Mildred, one of the Kirn oris cows-of'thc\ Watt herd. A'fr.  Marshall paid -thc^lidy sum of $1,000  for him to George Anderson of Bou-  gour, Ont. Another choicely bred bull  is Spicy Sultaii, a son of Superb Sultan.  At the experimental farm al La-  combc, some, very interesting feed  experiments are being carricel on.  There used to be an old saying that  it took 30 acres of range grass to  feed a steer, but Supt. Hulton has  provcel that this is absurd. Last year  he fed 106 head of cattle on 620 acres  of only prairie sod. Nothing had  been done to this section, except lo  fence it. These cattle gained on grass  alone, an average of 358 pounds each.  After securing this gain on grass  they were finished on grain anel marketed the present spring. When it  is remembered how many hundreds  of thousands of acres of gooel pasture  is yearly left to rot in the summer  in the west, it is possible to get at  least a glimpse of the economic waste  which is constantly going on. Mr.  Hulton is_ pasturing the same section again this year, but with a  smaller number of cattle. There had  been no cattle on it prior to 1915, but  the number on the section rite ii  pretty closely and he aims to <ivc  it thee  to recuperate.  Speaking of the fattening and marketing of cattle, a recent visitor to  the large stockyards in the South  reports that 90 per cent, of the cat-  tic going on these markets at the  present time arc cither of Polled  breeds or have been de-horned. This  adds emphasis to the recent statement in these columns as lo the importance of dehorning stock. Also 40  per cent, of the stock offered in this  way was finished at 24 months of age.  While offerings of what might relatively be termed "baby beef" are  large, there is a heavy demand, especially in New York, for big steers.  About'10,000 head of cattle arc killed  on that market weekly for the orthodox Jewish trade. There arc a million  orthodox .T-ews in the city of Now  York. The- Jews only cat" the fore-  quarter, and the hincl quarters, loins  and rounds go to the high-class hotel and restaurant traelc. As this supplying of the Jewish population of  New York is steadily on the increase,  there will continue to be a demand  for cattle weighing 1,500 to 1,700  pounds.  An item which western producers  of feeder cattle might well ponder  is that a bunch of feeder cattle  bought on thc_ Winnipeg yards last  year at $6.25 per cwt. was taken  down lo Omaha and fed .there, and  ultimately shipped to the Chicago  market and sole] there the first week  of July at $11.25 per cwt. This is the  highest spread on record between fall  and spring prices. Also it might be  remarked that it was the American  feeder that got this money and not  the Canadian shipper.  The Greatest Asset of Democracy  The greatest contribution (it says)  that Great Britain has made to the  war is not the number of men she has  put in the field, or the munitions she  lias turned \\out, or the ships which  i"-(vc sailed the seas, but the unbroken front, solitjanty, a stubborn tenacity of the notion as a whole. That  is a true picture of the English  which every one knows histinclive.lv  lo be true. The confusion is in technique, and that is unimportant.  There arc nations that might run the  war better, but there is not one that  could be more trusted to win the  war, anel that, after all, is the thing  that counts. To be sure of this you  have only to consider what would  happen to the Allies if England deserted them, and what England  wenilei elo if the Allies deserted her.  She would' go on alone, as she has  been known to do before. England  denouncing herself as inefficient is  yet the greatest moral asset of democracy ' in Europe.���������New York  Times.

Describing  a grenade light, he adds:  "It was while this was going on  that one of. my corporals callcel mc.  He hael made a discovery that was  very interesting, and was destined to  turn the tables on the enemy. He  took inc to a sort of vat that he had  found in front of the parapet of the  Boche trench. 1 recognized it as an  apparatus for burning liquid, and  hastily s^udieel its mechanism by a  pocket lamp. It was very simple. It  needed nothing but the movement of  a pump handle and was all rcatly,  no doubt, for our reception. ' Wc hurriedly-carried the infernal vat to the  mouth of the trench where our comrades were fighting. Some of them  lr.".d already fallen, and were lying  there in their blood. The fall of dusk  helped us, and we in ������������������failed the  machine without being seen. A  spark, and then what a sight!  ' With a hiss, a green and red  flame shot out like a nrey serpent,  and spread into a huge fan of flames  that submerged the whole ,trench.

It is  an astounding performance, especially if wc lake into onsidcration the  means the enemy undoubtedly possessed of knowing all about every departure and the zeal with which the  Austrian ,U boats, particularly, must  have sought the prize of a transport.  . But in spite .of their vigilance ahd  their daring and their ruthlcssness  they have,not been able to interfere  with the steady flow of troops which  has poured into Saloniki regularly,  methodically anel uneasingly.  "The vessels have tbccn entirely  French transports, and'great praise is  due to skippers and crews for the  manner in which they have accomplished their duties, but both French  anel Serbians gladly and gratefully  recognize that their achievement  would not have been possible without  the British navy; that only the constant vigil and unceasing patrolling of  our warships has made these Mediterranean seaways clear anel safe*.  "Over a hundred thousand Serbians  are now encamped on the plains and  in the valleys somewhere near Saloniki. A fine lot of men they are. Perhaps it has been a case of the survival of the fittest, -but these tall,  thick-set fellows show no traces of  the hardships anel sufferings of the  retreat anel exposure in Albania. Four  months' recuperation' in Corfu has  sloughed away all marks of sickness,  toil and privation. These Serbian soldiers look fit lo go anywhere and do  anything.' And the l.icn.arc as eager  as they are .fit. It is a new-born army  and entirely re-equipped with new-  French anel British uniforms; the  men look exceedingly smart and sol-  dicr-likc. Very proud are they of  their new* clothes, especially of the  general service buttons on the British  uniforms. It speaks well for the moral  stamina of a people that can come  through such trials without . losing  courage or becoming ' embittered.  These soleliers are as confident as  though the -ragi'c past were not, or  had never been. Artless, good-natured  and genuine their faith in their great  Allies is implicit.* They arc sad when,  they think of their homes in' Serbia  and of the women- arid children they  have left behind. Few havc_ heard  anything from their families for over  six" months". But there is a grim determination about them anel an enthusiasm _at the thought of an advance on their enemies.  "Visitors arc made very welcome at  a Scrbain camp. The whole Talent of  the regiment is mobilized in order to  entertain the guests.

Yet here they were enjoying themselves as. simply and  whole-heartedly as children."  "War is not at all bad," Pastor  Charles Wagner, author of "The Simple Life," declared lo me in the course  of a Paris interview, December, 1914,  say-, a United Press staff correspondent, writing from   Petrograd.  And when 1 asked.him lo go on  and explain, he saiel:  "Out of this turnicil anel slaughter  a few blessing are bound to emerge,  like lilies from the sand of a pond,  hor one thing 1 see a return from a  highly material, to a more spiritual  form_ of everyday life. For another  1 believe the minds of the masses will  be,liftcd by the war in a vision of bigger things.  "No man can go through such an  experience and remain the petty creature he was at the beginning. He can  not go back to his awl anel his last  and pick up bristle and thread just  where he left off.  "War hardens, but war educates;  one must be different afterwards,  one must be -wiser."  The pastor-philosopher was not  speaking of the soldiers of France  alone He included all peoples affected , by the war���������llTe English," the  French,'the Germans, the Austrians  and the Russians.  His inference was that France will  be a different country after the war.  So will Germany and England and  Russia and all the others.  Russia is bound to be a new Russia. That is one of the things the  war means to this mighty empire. It  Western Europe will be changed  through this Armgeddon, how much  more so will the Europe of the East  where the people are comparatively-  young.  'Ihtsc are the things implied bv  Pastor Wagner.  Russia, in fact,' has already changed, already  started  on the new road.  The American coming to Russia  expects to find things more centralized than in France or England.*��������� He  expects to see the government working independently,- above and apart  from the people because in the past  the government has played .the part  of the parent looking after the needs  of the child, or the people. To his  surprise he observes nothing of the  kind. He finds the' Russian people  working for- and with the government. - '  He discovers two great armies in  the land, one in uniform, under arms,  fighting. The. other in plain clothes,  or overalls, at bench anel lathe, working. The ^government's agent, the  general staff, commands both and coordinates their efforts.  Through their All-Russian Zemstvo  Union, their All-Russian Municipality  Union, their Central Committee, their  War Industry Committees, their Cooperative socie-ties and kindred organizations, Russian plain people and  Kussian jceiilry aro working hand in  hand, collaborating with the government and army for the good of the  country at large and for victory.  Never before have the people  shown such an eagerness to do public service anel never before have they  displayed such an aptitude for-il.  No one here makes any secret of  these things. I have talked to many  people high anel low and the facts  ���������which 1 have attempted-to set down  in this scries of articles arc recognized as showing the new trend in  Russia.  "War hardens, but war educates,"  said Wagner. And it "lifts the minds  of lire masses to higher' visions."  One can see it working out here in  Russia, even with the naked eye. The  people have demanded to be put to  work for the public gooel. Jobs have  been given them, they have set to  work anel already they love it.'

Why   German   Antipathy    Is Shown  More Against Britain Than  France or Russia  Apparently the Germans have decided that if they must be licked they  would rather be licked by the French  than by the British. They arc still  "strafing" England. This docs not  mean', by any means, that the Germans have come to the conclusion  that they will have lo be licked, but  merely that they will take no chances.  That must be the meaning of their  operations against the drive of the  allies on the western front. Paris  as well as London, says that the  Germans are making a more desperate resistance to the British often-,  sive than they aie to the French  offensive, that they are opposing it  with more guns and more men, anel  that they arc directing their reinforcements to that part of the^ front.-  In both capitals this "explanation is  given, of the greater progicss made  by the French. '    ' -  This German" antipathy to Great  Britain is also disclosed, no doubt  unwillingly, in the Berlin official announcements. It is a reeling that is  easily explained. But" for Great  Britain Germany's task would have  been coinpaiatively easy. Fitst the  British navy, next British financial  resources, and "-stly British soldiers  anel munitions have been the chief  obstacles to Gcimany's military success.' They have blocked her at"  every stage of the war, and now they  threaten to turn the tide of battle  against her.

Cromwell: "The troops arc  now disbanded. Fifty thousand men  accustomed to the profession of  arms, were at once thrown on the  world; and experience seemed to warrant the belief that this change would  produce misery and crime, that the  discharged veterans would be seen  begging in every street, or that they  would be driven by hunger to pillage.  But no such result followed. In a few  months there remaincel not a trace  that the most formidable army in the  world had been -absorbed into the  ways of the community. The Royalists themselves confessed that in  every department of honest industry  the said ex-residents were exemplary  beyond oilier men, that none were  charged with any theft or robbery,  that none was heard to ask for alms,  and that if a baker, a mason, or a  wagoner attracted attention by his  diligence and sobriety, he was'in all  probability, one of Oliver's old soldiers."

Fi  h  Eggs And The  Poultry Trade  U    The    Western    Canadian    Farmers'  -* Great Opportunity to Build Up   ���������  a Profitable Industry  Perhaps never again will Canadian  Farmers  have  such a  wonderful  opportunity presented to them of developing a great, profitable, and abiding  egg  and  poultry    trade  with     Great  Britain as is literacy being thrown in  their way today; and most assuredly,  if  this  great  opportunity is  grasped  promptly, the result will be a poultry  industry of such magnitude anel pro-  J  fitableness as has never been dreamed  il of even by the most enthusiastic.  \.     There is a demand in the British  market for eggs and poultry such as  has never been known before.    From  the year 1909 to 1913 the imports of  eggs into    Great    Britain    increased  from 177,108,334 dozens to 215,799,500  dozens. - Owing to war conditions it  'i is estimated that for 1915 and 1916 at  3*4 least-100,000,000 dozens of this supply  must be cut off so far as the former  sources of supply are concerned.  . At the time of the outbreak of the  European -war Canada's     exports of  [JfJ eggs amounted to practically nil. We  j were not producing a sufficient quan-  ) tity of eggs  for home    consumption,  ,',and our imports of eggs were increas-  ij i������g year by year-,  ������    Since the outbreak of the war Can-  (j, ada has  exported  considerable  quan-  V titics of eggs to Great Britain;    and  *'careful  consideration of the business  ;?, done  with   Great   Britain   during  the  r������ period  from  the fall  of  1914 to  the  '^present .time  will  show us, not "only  J|f that w.c are in danger of losing'a gol-  j| den' opportunity, but that the oppor-  *A tunity is ours if we will accept'it.  '{������������������     In the first place, then, it is to be  s^ feared that we have not been shipping  t eggs of such quality as will encourage  ,,ka  continued     demand  from   ^Britain  ijj!' after  the time of  stress  has  passed,  Q .simply because we 'have not had eggs  of such    quality as we might    quite  ^easily have had to ship.    In spite of  (this  unfortunate    fact,  owing to  the  %' wonderfully favorable  conditions  ex-  ���������isting^in Canada for the production of  the very finest quality of eggs, Canadian eggs have - commanded    higher  prices  on the  British markets     than  United   States .eggs,  which  goes     to  show what could be accomplished if  -the effort wer.e made. ,.  Now comes the question "How have  ���������wc managed  to  export     eggs to  the  British- markets at all?"    Simply by  slightly increasing our production and  sending out our own eggs and replacing them with imported eggs.    Then,  taking our western eggs we find that  -the  eastern  egg dealers,  in their  efforts  to meet    the  export    demand,  came west to buy eggs, but found that  our western eggs generally were not  -of a quality such as would find favor  )\ on the British markets, so they shipped   every  eastern   egg  possible   and  retained  the western  eggs  for home  ���������consumption.    Looking at the condi-"  tion of the industry in A'lberta today  what do we find? 'There has been an  even greater shortage than usual this  season, the reasons for this being various; but in which are included a lack  of interest and correct    methods  on  the part of many.   This shortage presents an opportunity to those who are  only too ready to grasp it of shipping  eggs   into   Canada  to   meet  the  ever  rapidly increasing demand on the part  of the consumer of eggs.    The result  is that United  States,    Chinese,    and  other eggs    step in and    replace the  Canadian, the Alberta eggs,���������and instead    of drawing    money    into  our  country wc are seneling good money  out of the country, allowing others to  snatch  from us  a terribly large portion    of an industry so    valuable, so  easy to make a start in, and the returns from . which, if correctly   conducted in its every phase are so quickly realized.       - * ,  Today the Alberta hen has an av-1  erage production    to    her    credit of  forty-nine     eggs  per  annum,���������which  might quite easily be increased by one  hundred per cent., given correct methods   of   breeding,  feeding,   housing,  and  general  care;  and  this  with  exceedingly I'ttle added expense in run-  t-lng the flocks.  It is true that our producers here  are faced by many discouragements  owing to the unsatisfactory marketing  conditions which have prevailed; but  a great opportunity is being offered to  the farmers of Alberta, Saskatchewan  and Manitoba, by die Dominion and  Frovincial Department of Agriculture,  to remedy these conditions and take  this   wonderful    industry    seriously.

Prophesies Future Submarine  Like Great Liner '  Sir Joseph Compton Rickeft, M. P.,  makes a startling prediction s to the  future service-of the submarine. "Very  soon," he avers, "the Atlantic will be  darkened by huge airships, and its  depths explored by submarines. Sub  merged traffic of warships or liners  will be conducted with immunity from  weather.  Germany boasts that she is building vessels so capacious that they will  carry mails and passengers to America. There is really no limit to their  possible size except tho depth of  water Ln which they will have to op-  crate.  "The submarine of today will be  the exhibit of a future museum like  the old rocket, the pioneer locomotive of the railway world. Compared  with the early twentieth century specimen, the submarine, of the future  will resemble an Atlantic liner beside  a river steamboat.  "In this development wc shall recover our communications, fo. in time  of war'we'shall adopt the alternative  of sub-aqueous navigation. The darkness of the sea depths will provide the  path of safety for the great liners,  and our imports, exports, and passengers will pass freely from continent  to continent. On quiet days wc may  navigate the surface, but plunge below  to escape the buffet of storrr or the  hail of shell. The freedom of the seas  will be translated from an expression  into a fact.

In rural and  village schools, particularly, the interest of children in their school  work should be aroused and held by  its intimate "contact with agriculture.  A few suggestions are offered herewith for impressing upon the pupils  the utility value of the subjects  taught.  "In connection with the teaching of  arithmetic the following topics' might  be used as a basis for problems and  -general   instruction:  Neat methods of compiling, farm  records, e.g., milk and ' egg production, receipts and expenses, time  sheets, etc. These records will form  the basis for numerenrs problems  Cost of production rent, labor, wear  and fear of machinery; marketing of  farm products, computation of profits; mensuration of fields, wood-piles,  lumber, ice-houses, etc.; invoices,  cheques, receipts and commercial  forms;   taxation;   mortgages.  The teaching of reading anil the  study of literature offer exceptional  opportunities for arousing the interest of the pupil.  The best literature is replete with  selections calculated to inspire a love  of outdoor life and an interest in  the plants and animals with which  the country child comes in dally contact. " Whittier's The Barefoot Boy,  Burns'.To ia Mountain Daisy, and Lowell's description of a day in June are  examples, and every teacher will be  able to pick out scores of other pieces  of merit.  the Rural Home Attractive  At the last annual meeting of the  Commission of Conservation a report  of a survey conducted on 400 farms  during  1915   was   presented. ���������   Some  interesting data were secured respecting conditions in many rural homes.  Keeping the young people on    the  farm is one of Canada's national problems.    Many  causes  have   been suggested for the yearning for the city.  The  conveniences  of  the  city home  constitutes  one  of  the chief attractions.   Notwithstanding this, however,  very few farmerB    have    introduced  these conveniences into their homes.  Of the 400 farmers visited, 53 per  cent, have young people in their families.    With this large percentage of  young people 'it is a regretable fact  that only two farmers out' of every  hundred  have  bathrooms    in    their  homes.   Only 6.2 per cent, have water  closets,  only  2.6' per cent,  have  a complete service, and only 2.2 per  cent, have electric light.   In these 400  homes, only 16.5 per cent, have the  water piped  to  the  house,  and  but  17.5  per cent, have furnaces in the  home.   These conditions are entirely  within the control of    the    farmers,  86.7 per cent, of whom are the own-i  ers of farms averaging-126.5 acres.  In contrast with the foregoing, the  conveniences which have been supplied by the government and public  utility companies" and of which the  farmer, has availed himself stand -out  prominently. The Post Office Department has carried to 76 per cent, of  these 400 farmers rural free 'mail delivery, allowing 77 per cent, of- them  to be- supplied with dally newspapers,  while 58.2 per cent, have the convenience of a telephone.  Only -2.5 per cent, have complete  sanitary service in their homes, while  o per cent, have automobiles, and  13.5 per cent, have either automobile  or horse and buggy for the young  people.  Much has been said and written of  late to interest the farmer in the automobile, but little is heard of such  household,conveniences as the bath  tub, kitchen sink, sanitary closet, etc.  The automobile may carry the rural  housewife , away from her drudgery  for a few hours a week, and to that  extent proves a blessing, but the price  of an automobile would provide a water supply ��������� and other conveniences  that go with it, and render the home  a home both ,to the housewife and  the young people.  res  Fighting between national groups  of individuals stands on -precisely the  same footing as fighting between individuals. The political stability and  good order of nations, it is beginning  to be seen, can be more satisfactorily  maintained by a tribunal having a  strong police force behind it than by  fne method of allowing the individual  nations concerned to fight out quarrels between themselves. The stronger nations have for a large part imposed this r������ace ripon the smaller na-  Ucds of Europe to the great benefit  of the latter. How can we impose a  similar peace upon the stronger nations, for their own benefit and forthe benefit of tlie whole world? To  that task all our energies must be  directed.  A long series of eminent thinkers  and investigators,-from Comte and  Buckle a century ago to Dr. Woods  and Mr. Baityly today, have assured  us that war is diminishing, and even  that the warlike spirit is extinct. It  is certainly not true that the warlike  spirit is extinct, even in the most civ.  ilized and peaceful peoples, and we  need not desire its extinction, for it  is capable of transformation into  shapes of the finest use for humanity.  But the vaBt conflagration of today  must not conceal from our eyes the  great central fact that was is diminishing, and will one day 'disappear 'as  completely as the medieval scourge of  the Black Death. To reach this con-  summotion all the best humanizing and  civilizing energies of mankind will be  needed.���������(Havelock Ellis In The Na-  ���������tion.)

Enormous quantities of timber  are necessarily used for military purposes in addition to what is unavoidably destroyed in the fighting zone.  The shortage of tonnage has made  it impracticable for the needed supplies ot timber to be furmshed on  any large scale from Canada or the  united fatates, and, as a result, heavy  cutting Has become necessary in the  belligerent countries. While England is not generally regarded as a  rorest country, and 'nas made relatively lrttle progress in public forestry,  there is still in "bmgiand and Scotland a considerable amount of timber, mostly on royal and private  estates.   The imperative necessity for  After Harvest   Cultivation  The following extracts are from  the report on Illustration Farms  given at the annual meeting of the  Conservation Commission in January,  1916:  Five of the farmers chosen to conduct illustration work had been practising   after-harvest  cultivation   previous to the visits of the Commission's  instructor.    Since  his' visits,  twenty  of   the   farmers   have   adopted     this  practice.    Eighteen state that it has  _ helped to keep down weeds, and that  j It has increased their yields and the  profits from their farms.  George R. Barrie (Gait, Ont.):  "Our  experience  with after-harvesr  cultivation has proven to us that it  helps greatly in keeping down weeds  and the laud is in a better condition  to -withstand   the   drought   the   next  year."  W. T. Hands,  (Perth, Ont):  Excepting clover  seed    production  and seeding,this is in my opinion the  most important illustration.,   We. find  it pays from every standpoint and as  proof that this part of the work has  been noticed many of the farmers in  this   district   aire   demonstrating   its  value for themselves and   the   acreage   increases   yearly.     Three   years  ago this was not done."  Thos. Hall, (Brooklin, Ont.): "If  one wants good crops he has to gang  plough and cultivate after the .harvest."  Thomas McDowell, (Shawville,  P-Q.):  "After-harvest cultivation was not  practised- in this community until  three years ago and now many farmers are doing quite a lot of it and  find it very profitable for it usually  insures a good catch of grass and  clover, leaving the land quite porous  and fertile."  Albert Schurman, (Central Bede-  que, P.E.I.): "I notice many of my  neighbors are taking up this practise."  ���������F.C.N.

For    in-  day look upon poultry raising as one  of the most important branches of  agriculture and then, in spite of this  fact, see that the cs'imated value of  eggs alone produced in Canada in 1915  was $30,000,000, what might be expected if the industry shculd be taken seriously and conducted as a real business? In 1911 the actual value o. the  poultry industry in eggs and poultry  sold off our Canadian farms was two  and a half times -.he value of the  whole fruit crop; six times the value  of all the sheep; and half the value of  all the cattle produced. Still the demand is for more -r.d better poultry  and eggs. The opportunity is here to  build up a wonderful and profitable  ���������industry. Shall we throw this opportunity away for others to snatch, and  ���������regret our mistake in the future?  An old couple in the south were  much distressed, owing to their in-  -creasing poverty. Thinking their son  .-in the north would help them, they  wrote stating their trouble, and saying that if he did not aid them they  would be obliged to go to the poor  \house.

As regards the municipalities, they  are under pressure of the British  food blockade, being forced by the  necessity of providing the highest  possible supply of food stuffs for  the urban population, to start farming on their own account. For instance, such towns as Hanover and  Mainz have bought landed estates  for municipal cultivation, and it is  intended to thus improve the supply  of milk and pork for .their own localities. Frankfurt is to erect a municipal slaughter house, while Ulm has  undertaken chicken farming on a  large scale. Coblentz has bought  cattle and pigs in large numbers to  be placed upon municipal property.  The Berlin papers are inclined to  look upon these economic and socialistic changes with a. favorable eye and  as good signs. They contend that  there is altogether too much vacant  land given over to luxury,'1 and once  they can get this land.under cultivation and put to useful and productive occupation so much the better  for the country as a whole. And once  they have learned to feed themselves  there will be no further necessity to  look to the outside world for supplies  as was done previous to the present  war.���������Toronto Saturday Night.

In Lon  "������������-" it. j don Daily News.)  would be strange if that were possible  -We do not live in the visible presence  of war. To equal the passion of  France we should have to share its  tragedy���������we should have to see England from Liverpool, through the Potteries, to Birmingham and the Wash  in the hands of the enemy, every village and town over that long line of  battle in ruins, a belt of desolation  extending right through-the heart of  England, all the resources of Lancashire and Yorkshire feeding the fires  of the enemy and all over the country north of London given over to the  operations of war. That has been  something like tho position of France  for nearly two years and under that  terrific grandeur and a. devotion of  spirit as splendid as anything in history.  It is. that revelation which has bvrst  on me with profound meaning through  the emotions of these thrilling days. I  have seen a nation in agony, but it  is an agony borne with a greatness of  soul that will be an imperishable memory of the war. It Is only by seeing  all the phases of the life: of France  today, in the trenches, in the factories, in the fields, in tlie sphere of administration that one discerns ', the  mighty passion that has transfigured  the nation. . There is in that transfiguration something epic and personal. It is as though the nation has resolved itself into a single figure, and  a single emotion. Wherever I have  gone I have seemed to have that figure-moving beside me and that emotion flaming heaven-high in my pres  ence.   ���������.,;���������������������������..'  It is the flame of the France of- the  Revolution. Fox saw in that flame  the fire that was to consume the old  tyranny of feudalism from the earth.  It burned itself out and from its ashes  there emerged a new imperialism,  but the spirit that gave it birth has  remained the undying motive of  F'rance ever since and today the flame  of liberty glows again like a pillar of  fire throughout the land. .As I stood  the other day on the great parade  ground at Suippes, where General  Gourand was reviewing some of the  troops behind the lines of Champagne  and conferring decorations ou officers  and men who had distinguished themselves in the struggle of the trenches  I seemed to see the issue of this war  stated with moving and memorable  emphasis. From a score of bands, as  the regiments of war-stained soldiers  passed by, there broke the triumphant strains of the "Marseillaise."  For more than a century the story of  France has been centred in that immortal song of liberty. With every  reaction the tyrants have sought to  stamp it out of the heart of the  people, but always it has come again  to their lips and today it is the unchallenged utterance of the nation,  weighted with the splendid indignation  against tyranny, sobbing with the sadness of sacrifice, thrilling with the  note of victory or death. Nearly a  million of the sons of France have  died in this .war in the spirit of that  deathless song, and as It rose and fell  with the passing of troops, and as I  saw the general "salute it as tho anthem of his country I realized that  here in France, if nowhere else, the  j Issue is plain and that men are dying  adian woodsmen to cut it for-war pur  poses. Very large quantities have  also been cut in France and in Russia. In Belgium, the ^Germans have  cut a large proportion of; the timber  and have used it in military operations or shipped it to Germany.  The result of all this over-cutting  will mean a heavy shortage of-timber for reconstruction purposes after  the war, when it should be possible  lo make large shipments from this  continent. This will mean a largely  increased drain" upon Canadian forests, and serves to emphasize the  necessity for still more complete conservation of this tremendously valuable asset. If Canada rs to take full  advantage of her opportunities for  world-service in this direction.  The greatest enemyV of the forest  is and always has been fire. It has  been estimated that the average annual forest fire loss in this country  is sufficient to pay the interest on  the recent Dominion loan of $100,-  000,000. To reduce this loss, it is  necessary not only to grant larger  appropriations for fire-ranging ser-  -vices, but also to reorganize such  services in a number of cases, i,vlth  a view of securing a dollar's worth  of protection for every dollar spent.  It has been stated on competent authority that at present more money is  wasted on forest fire protection, for  lack of proper organization and supervision, than is expended advantageously  The importance of the forest In the  internal economy of Canada is  shown by the fact that the average  total value of forest products of Canada is in the neighborhood of $180,-  000,000, or an average wealth production of about $25 per head of popula.  tion. Nearly $8,000,000 in direct rev.  enue is received annually by the federal and provincial' governments  from the sale or lease of cutting rights  to publicly-owned timber lands and  from royalty and stumpage payments  made upon timber so cut Some  5,000 wood-using industries in Canada  are directly dependent upon the supply of timber cut from non-agricultural lands.  Nothing New Under the Sun  Aeroplanes and Submarines Are Said  to be Centuries Old  According to researches by a  French professor, it would appear  that submarines have almost as hoary  a past as aeroplanes, which, as is well  known involve ideas which are centuries old.  It also appears that submarines  were built as early as the beginning  of the seventeenth century. The origin  of the invention is older still. Aristotle  tells how Alexander the Great made  use of submarines during the siege of  Tyre more than 300 years btfore  Christ.  A Dutchman named Cornelius Van  Drebbel astounded London in 1620  with a submarine that held twelve  oarsmen and some passengers, among  whom was King James I.  Previous to this, in 1534 a monk  suggested the idea that a -hip be  constructed of metal so as to be wat-  tcrtight and able to resist" the press-  lire of. water.  In 1537 a ship with twenty cannon,  eigghty sailors, and many bags of  money on board blew up and sank in  the port of Dieppe.  Three years later a Frenchman, Jean  Barrie, called Pradine, built, according  to the olel monk's ideas, a submarine  with which he promised to rescue the  bags of gold and silver from the  wreck, and possibly some pieces of  artillery. _  The great Pascal, then a little boy,  was an eye-witness to the experiments  of Pradine, which were carried on till  1650 with ultimate success.  But it is not on record that any of  these submarines were murderers of  little children.  A Trifle Dangerous  - The scene was a wrecked village  a few miles behind the British lines  in Northern France. It has been  fought through and probably under  the impression that troops were billeted among the ruins, the Germans  dropped shells on the miserable place  at frequent intervals.  The village, however, only contained a score of. natives and a Red Cross  motor detachment, who found shelter  in the cellars and slept indifferent to  the work of the Kaiser. The invariable morning question, relates "The  Motor," addressed to the old lady  who presided over this underground  hotel, was "Has there been much doing during the night," "Ah, monsieur," she replied, "the Prussians  dropped 200 shells on our town last  night. I really think wc shall have  to move from here; this war is beginning to be dangerous."  Kitchener's Forebodings of the Sea  One remarkable revelation may  without : impropriety be made about  Lord Kitchener. It is that Le had a  Su'rt of foreboding of an accident at  sea. So much was this the case that  he never crossed from Dover ,to  Calais without wearing a lifebelt  waistcoat, one that he bad specially  made for him in Egypt btfore he mid,  his famous advance on Khartoum.  Though so often on the sea and an  excellent sailor, he detested a sea passage, and never felt comfortable on  board any ship. He always complained that the sea affected his otherwise  excellent sighi���������excellent, that is, considering his age and how much he had  been exposed to a tropical sun. Another curious point was that, whilst  he always acquired, curios in any part,  of the.world in which he might be, he  took care never to allow his purchases to-be on the vessel on which he  was a passenger.���������Manchester Guardian.

Octogenarian���������Well, I reckon I got  a good start on most people by being born before germs were discov-  cicel, thereby having less to worry  about. ;  The unpopularity of Canada thi***,  tie Is due largely to its unsightly ap-'  pearance     and    exceedingly   spiny  leaves, and to its persistent resist-.  ance to  extermination.   Under ordinary   cropping   systems ' and-  y/ith  reasonable   care,   the   thistle   is   at  worst a disagreeable nuisance/ Generally speaking, it  does  not injurs  the.quality or quantity of farm pr<5t  ducts, excepting hay, as much as do  quack-grass,  wild  onion,   wild  mus- -  tard  and   others;   nor  is   it  as   destructive  to  the  grass  in  pastures  aud meadows as are a number of almost insignificant little weeds whose  very existence is often unsuspected.  When  left  to   itself,   however,  the  thistle   spreads   rapidly,   until   in   a  few years it will more or less completely occupy the land, rendering it  unfit   for    farming    purposes,    and  sharply     depreciating    its     market  value.   The soil upo"n which Canada  thistles flourish is apt to be of good  natural fertility, and it usually pays  to reclaim thistle-Infested fields.       '  The cause of the "remarkable vital*  ity of Canada thistle and the point '  that   distinguishes   it    from    other "  prickly   plants   that   are   commonly  mistaken for It is the long, cord-like  perennial root.  This root penetrates  the soil at a depth of eight to fifteen  inches, or more,  and  gives  rise, at -  frequent   intervals   to  leafy, shoots. -  Thus it will often be found, that an' .  entire patch of thistles is attached'  to one root, and is in reality but one'*',  plant.   The root is exceedingly har- -  dy,   and   can   live   over" winter, or  through  a  prolonged  drought  in - a,  dormant   condition.   Pieces- of - 'the1'  root that are broken off by- a plow  or  cultivator and  carried   to .other  places will await a warm,- moist pe-^  riod,   and   then   begin   to   send   up "  leafy shoots, thus establishing a new *  patch forthwith.   If the.leafy stems  are cut down, others will be sent up,  to take their place, and this process **  may be repeated^ from two to eight  times  before  the  root _ becomes , exhausted. In most localities, the Canada thistle does not produce many-  good seeds, as the male andvfemale -  flowers are on separate plants, and -  not all of the female flowers produce  viable seeds. Nevertheless, the seeds  are frequently hidden" away in straw -  and hay, and are sometimes present  in grass and clover seed and in seed -  oats. As each seed is equipped with  a feathery plume, a small patch of  thistle may serve to infest a whole  neighborhood.  ThcT point that must be kept in  mind, therefore, in fighting Canada  thistles is that it is the roots, rather  than the tops, that must be killed.  Simply cutting off the tops a few  times has much the same effect as  pruning an apple tree. But .if the  tops are cut orf deep and frequently,  the root must eventually suffocate  through lack of leaves. Bearing this  in mind, any of the following methods will-be found effective:  1. 'Summerfallow ��������� Most suitable  for" one-half acre or -more or thor- *���������  oughly infested land, from which  little revenue could b'e expected anyway. Plow deep in the fall, exposing  the roots to the frost. Harrow in the  spring to kill seedlings of annual  weeds. Let the thistle grow until the^  first blossoms appear (about June  1) or until there is danger of other  weeds going to seed. Plow shallow  and from then until frost use disk  harrow often enough to prevent thistle leaves form making over four  Inches of growth. If the thistles get  over six inches high at any time*all  the previous -work will,be .undone.  This applies to all methods. Follow  during second year with a -cultivated  crop, giving it a little extra cultivation and hoeing out individual thistles.  2. Partial Fallow���������(1)  For grain  fields or old meadows. Cut the crop  early for hay, if necessary,  to pre-    .  vent   thistles   from   seed rrg-.    Allow  fhisi^es to grow for four to six days,  -then plow and proceed as in 1 for  remainder of season. (2). For cultivated ground. Allow thistles to grow  until first blossoms appear. Plow  shallow. When thistles are. about  three inches high, disk thoroughly  and plant late smother crops, as below.  . 3. Smother Crops ��������� Combination  of above. A good method on rich  ground. Cut grass or grain early for  hay as in 2 (1) above. Plow shallow  four to six days later. Leave for four  to six days more and disk thoroughly. Then sow smother crop of buckwheat (4-5 peck-, rape (broadcast 6-8  pound), millet, (3-4 peck), or fodder  corn in check rows. After the crop  is off, keep thistles down bv disking until frost. Hemp and alfalfa  are excellent smother crops In sections where they are grown. Alfalfa  may be either spring or fall sown,  according to custom, but the surface  of the ground must be clean and  well prepared before planting.  4. Cultivated Crops���������Most generally useful method. Corn in check  rows best crop. Have ground clean  before planting, Equip cultivator  with nine-inch sweeps instead of ordinary shoes. Keep sweeps sharp  and cultivate frequently.. Hoe the  corn after laying by, and cultivate  the ground after harvest with a disk  harrow until frost. Repeat second  year.  5. Hoeing and Cutting���������Best for  small patches. Stake out the patch  and visit regularly with a sharp hoe  or scythe at least twice a week.   g _  Hitting Back  At a certain church in a Jersey  town it is the invariable custom ol  the clergyman to kiss the bride after  the ceremony.

Speaking at a luncheon in  London in honor of James M. Beck,  he said that he hael received an address, signed by some Americans, a  large proportion of whom had come  from Germany, urging that, since the  war must cnel in a draw, it was best  lo make peace at once and save further bloodshed. The plea is not  novel; it has been put forth, though  not in so many words, by the'German government. As Lord Bryce  pointed out, however, neither the premise nor ihe conclusion is -iclmissiblc.  The war is not in the least likciy to  end in a draw. The allies have made  loo many sacrifices to be contented  with that. Thi.y are bound to fight  on cither to victory or defeat. Lord  Bryce is confident of the former, not  only because of the recent successes  on land, but because Great Britain  holds the sea and her supremacy there  cannot now be shaken. Whether the  German government is losing heart or  not. It has not yet reached the point  of being willing io offer any terms  the allies can accept, and a peace that  would be only a truce is not to be  thought of for a moment.  All this ought to be plain to Americans,   though   ma  have even  yet fa  arc  fighting,"  says  Lord   Bryce,   "for  vital   to  Boy Scout Movement  Valuable Work Done by the Boy  Scouts in Connection With the War  ll has been no small part that the  Boy Scouts have played in this war.  From spying out enemy cruisers lo  digging potatoes, they have a fine record of useful and spirited service.  Their efforts to aid the Empire in this  lime of stress and strain will long be  remembered. Boy Scouts in England  arc loading vans, collecting parcels,  wheeling trolleys, and helping to sort  the enormous mass of correspondence  which Lancashire, Cheshire anel Yorkshire are sending lo the troops. To be  custodians of the soldiers' mails is a  very thrilling and important matter,  and, of course, the Boy Scouts are doing their work well.

Anel as prophets no one will  proclaim them exemplary. Their prediction about Calais elid not materialize. Their "lrcakfasting iu Paris had  also to be postponed.

Wc have a notion  that the prediction shared thc fate of  those that the-. Yankee indulged in  about the end of the world. -It didn't  come off.  The finest thing, however, in Germanic prophetic art was issueel just  three days before'the,grand offensive  of .������he Allies on the western front  began. Jit was published by the organ of the Kaiser, The Berlin Lokal  Anzcigcr, which \vc ought to add, is  p. pretty well -conducted organ in  peace times, "The satisfactory result  attained through our offen: ive at Verdun consists in this: General Joffre  cannot now. elisposc of one man nor  a single rifle to undertake a general  offensive, and'.-without the French  neither can the English no." the Rus-  the origin ol" the war makes this clear.  The contest is one between two ideals  of conduct, two kinds of civilization  which cannot possibly exijt side by  side. It is an irrcconcilab'c conflict  if ever there were one. That is why  President Wilson's theory that we  have no concern with its causes, that it  is a madness in which we arc happily  ndt involved, that we should seek for  peace with no regarel to thc issues at  slake, is rather staggering *.r, the plain  wayfaring man. It is not a question  of destroying the German nation.  "What wc do desire," says Lord  Bryce, "is to exorcise an evil spirit  and discredit thc military caste which  elclights in war, anel threatens not  only Europe, bul all countries, America included." The kind of settlement  the pacifists urge would defeat this  object. Jl is no true service lo humanity to leave thc evil conditions  which produced-the..war. untouched.- It  is.difficult to see how there can be  any intelligent disagreement with  Lord Bryce on this ��������� point.���������Philadelphia Ledger.

Since light travels 186,000 miles a seconel, we may  for all practical purposes regard ourselves as seeing the lightning the instant it flashes. But sound travels  1,087 feet a'sccond. Multiply 1,087 by  the number of seconds during the interval between the flash and the thunder anel thc result is the distance between you and the storm. As a rule,  from twelve to fifteen miles is thc  .greatest distance thunder can be  heard.

Had Thrilling Experience  Chief Petty Officer on Cruiser India  Returns to Canada  Chief Petty Officer George Fielding of London, Ont., who joined the  British navy on the outbreak of 1:he  war and who has since passed through  many thrilling experiences in northern  waters, has returned to London. Mr.  Fielding was on the staff of the armed  cruiser India, which sank a Him submarine in the North Sea, and which,  at length, met its finish from .i similar adversary. After the sinking oi  the submarine the India wa-: twice  attacked within a few days, but the  torpedoes went astray and the undersea  vessels  were out-manoeuvred.  A German merchant ""-ship that al-  tempted to run thc British blockade  after having been intcrncel in Norway was overtaken and sunk, the  members of its crew being rescued.  The India later was assigned to duty  in northern waters, and, while within  thc Arctic Circle, suddenly -.i.jhtnd a  periscope five hundred yards away.  The gunners rushed to their posts,  but before they opened fire a torpedo  travelling seventy miles an  struck the India astern, on the starboard sielc, and she sank in less than  four minutes, nineteen of her crew  of 304 perishing. One lifeboat was  safely  launched,  but   Fielding,     with  Settlement of the    Interior of    Australia to be Soon Realized  The news that the Australians are  building two 'thousand miles of railroad to open, up the interior of, their  country doesn't even interest the average American. ���������.,:'...

It is in lhc wearing of  thc uniform anel doing of things together as Scouts that they absorb thc  force and truth of the Scout Law,  which states: "A Scout is a friend of  all, and a brother lo every other  Scout."  Thc Boy Scouts of America organization has enjoyed rapid growth  since its inception not quite six years  ago. At present it has over 150,000  registered Scouts, in addition to more  than 200,000 who arc practising Scouting but who are not registered. The  organization has over 9,000 Scoutmasters anel Assistant Scoutmasters.  There arc about 360 Commissioners  anel 4,350 members of local councils.  The American public has come to  know something of the value of the  movement. Such demonstrations as  were given during'thc Gettysburg reunion, the Ohio "flood, the Baltimore  centennial and the St. Louis pageant  and scores of similar events where  real service was given by Boy Scouts,  have impressed thinking men and women through the country with thc  fact that Scouting is not merely play,  but a very important programme for  training and', .making-use of the boyhood of the country for its welfare.  Judge Albion C. Blair of Portsmouth,  has said: "The Boy Scouts are the  one asset of the city above allothcrs  that must be encouraged and given a  proper chance to develop. As these  boys progress so will Portsmouth progress, not only today but in years to  come."  Encouraging progress was reported  at the first annual meeting of the Saskatchewan Provincial Boy Scouts  Council, which" \vas held recently in  Rcgina. The report of the secretary,  Mr. Frank C. Irwin, showed that on  May 15, 1916, 1,492 men .and boys  were' actively, engaged in Scouting in  the province anel 1,364 boys were under instruction. More than 125 carefully-selected, clean men of strong  character were given leadership as  Scout Commissioners, Scoutmasters,'  Assistant Scoutmasters and Instructors. This was an increase of 64.13  per cent, over the enrolment of June  30, 19.15, -when there was a total membership of nine hundred and nine. At  present there arc 69 Boy Scout troops  in the province and this figure does  not include two very live packs of  Wolf Cubs, (junior Scouts). All these  arc led by men who arc giving their  service 'without compensation because  of their belief in Scouting as a programme for the development of character and good citizenship in boys.  Officials   high   up   in   thc   ranks   of  Tradition .Says it Was    Once    Pure  White, But is Now Black  From Many Tear:;  Year by year a great pilgrimage  consisling of from 150,000 to 200,000  Moslems, make thc journey to Mecca,  and il is on ihcsc occasions that daring men have risked lhc clangers associated with such an enterprise, and  endeavored lo gain access to the Holy  City. But a wrong genuflexion, a  false word in one of the prayers, a  little inc'uisilivcncss in looking at  some, fascinating rite has been their  undoing.  Thc cry has gone up, "A Christian,"  and the mob has rushed at them and  torn ihcni limb from limb.  Meca is, indeed, the holiest ground  of the Mohammedans, and thc Mosque is the Holy of Holies. Thc building stands on ground which Arab tradition declares to be the centre of the  world, ground wliich the Moslem believes to be a part of heaven on earth,  anel which will return to heaven at the  last day;  Inside this building is the sacred  black stone towards, which all mos-i  lcnis turn in worship. Acording to'  Mohammedan tradition this stone .was  given to Abraham by lhc Angel Gabriel, and was originally pure white,  its present dark color being due lo the  tears shcel for sins by the many pilgrims who visit the, place annually.  In connection with the pilgrimage,  it is worthy of note that last year it  was thc British government who arranged for the safe conduct of the  "holy carpet" from Cairo to Jeddah,  the port of -Mecca, and one of the  places captured by the Arabs.  German Valet Was Spy  Servant Empijyed by a High Government Official Arrested as. a Spy  Thc long-drawn patience of the German Secret Service has just Lee illus-  tratctl by an incident in London. A  German, well connected, came to London twelve years ago and by his industry, urbanity of manner, anel linguistic ability succeeded in obtaining  an entrance into the confidence of a  higJi government official who recommended him as valet to an official  connected with the diplomatic service.  For three yea* s -the German valet fulfilled with painstaking care, his duties.  A few weeks ago, however, a hint was  imparted to the: civil official that the  German was suspected, elespite the  fact that he had been for some years  a naturalized British subject.  One morning while thc valet, answering some questions about the  war, bewailed the losses that the British were sustaining, a detective from  Scotland Yard appeared on thc scene  and arrested hiuT. At once the German broke out into fury of indignation anel cursed in both English and  German the "entire tribe of British  swine." The valet's rooms were ransacked and thc most damaging proof  found of his connection with other  spies in the country. He is now in the  Tower of London.  Working in the Sun  Most of us are'such creatures of  habit that we are likely, in digain.-r,  cultivating, transplanting and thinning, lo begin always at the same end  of thc garden rows and to work ;il-  ways in thc same direction.

If the day is cool and the  sun's ' warmth "adds to your comfort,  turn your back to it. In. garelen work  you arc bound to stoop more or less  and v.'ith your "back to the sun, you  p.escnt the, broadest expanse cf your  person to its rays. - On the contrary,  when you face the sun, so stooping,  the rays strike mostly on your head,  which, of course, should be protected  by an ample hat with, pcrhapu, a cabbage leaf in it.

Various theories have been advauc-  ed to explain this. A Frenchman has  quite recently suggested thai lhc phenomena is related to the fact that because of the lowering of atmospheric  pressure during storms, the barometric reading always being low then, the  gases which .-ire in thc lower portions  of the milk can more easily rise to the  top and dins promote the action of  the lactic acid bacUria.  | Lightning has **o direct effect and  tne only difference between the effect of summer and winter slonns is  that in the sunim .r the higher tenT*--  craturcs inakc the milk more'susceptible Io bacterial action.  This seems io be a rational ixplana-  lion. The souring of milk, being a  -fermentation reaction in which bacteria cause thc milk sugar .to cham e  over into lad's acid, proceeds rapidly  or slowly according to conditions.  Care in keeping 'milk clean and as  free from bacteria as possible and  keeping it cold tends to lengthen the  period that it will stay sweet because  fermentation is retarded.  On thc oth-ir hand, carelessness ?s  regards cl ���������pulincss and permitting  milk to slay warm have the opposite-  effect because these -.onditions favjr  the fermentation process. Similarly  l,hc presc.icc of thesj gases in the  milk rclaids the fcrncntaticn or souring. Reaction products alvays retard  a chemical reaction unless removed  from Hie sphere of activity because'  ihcy usually cnel fo set up some .ort  of equilib.lu  ..  Since thc mscs rise in .-re rapidly  I- the top and thus escap vlien the"  atmospheric /ensure is low - during  storms, this retarding effect which is  normally exerted on. milk fermentation is_ al least partially removed anel  the milk sours more rapidly. This  suggests that if it were, possible" to  keep milk containers air-tight during  storm periods the storm could, have  no  effect.

One Year of Prohibition  Beneficial Conditions Result From the  Prohibition Law in Kansas  An important statement was issued  by thc Honorable C. W. Trickclt, Assistant Attorney-General of fie State  of Kansas, in the year 1907 concern-,  ing thc working of the enforcement  cf the prohibition lawof that state in  Kansas City, Kansas���������with a population of 100,000���������which adjoins the  even larger and ever, more widely  known railroad centre known as Kansas City, Missouri, where liquor is  freely sold.  A year ago there were 256 saloons,  200 gambling houses, and about 60  houses of ill-fame. Now not one of  these evils can be found. In that  lime the population has increased  more rapidly than ever before. The  merchants and storekeepers have had  to hire more help anel the elcposits in  the banks have increased by one million and a half dollars.  The attendance at thc public schools  has been so increaseel that 18 more  teachers have haef to be secured. The  increase is mostly in boys and girls  between the ages of 12 and 16, who.  before the closing of the saloon, hael  'to go out-to work to help maintain  the family because the father spent so-  much of-his money on liquor.        *������������������-.  The charitable institutions- report  that the demands for help have diminished two-thirds. Prior to the closing of saloons, the Juvenile Court had  'each month from 8 to 88 children--before it-who needed help. There luive .  been only two such ���������during .the past-  eight months. During the past twelve  months, two young men have been  sent to the Reformatory as against 15  to 5 for previous years.' Expenses for  prosecuting criminals have gone clown.  $25,000 a year, anel the cost of the.  police force has been reduced as much  more.  A striking paragraph in Mr. Trick-  ctt's statement is this: "A year ago the  city was trying to . devise ways and  means to spare the money to build  additions to our city jails.

Sledge-Dogs in War  When thc (ji.estion of transporta*  tion through the mountain snow iu  the Vosgcs became pressing the  French c'dnccivcel thc idea of utilizing  dog drawn sleighs for carrying supplies. Several hundred trained dogs  from Alaska, Northwestern Canada  and Labrador were brought over by  a French lieutenant' who had spent*  fourtccn years in Alaska. From the  beginning of thc year to April 21,  with a short interval, the snow in th-x  neighborhood of the Schliicht, Pass  was deep enough for the dogs to be  able to" render' yocman service. They  were able to draw heavy loads over  almost inaccessible country and ' to  supplement to a'valuable extent the  wdiceled transport which otherwise ,  would have been the sole means of re- ���������  victualling the army of the Vosges.  But their utility has not ceased with  the disappearance of the snow.  They arc now being harnessed to  small two foot gauge light railways .  which run everywhere behind the  front, and they are capable of drawing  the heaviest load'up thc steepest gradient. Eleven dogs, with a couple of  men, can carry a ton up some of the  most precipitous slopes in the mountains, and two teams of seven dogs  each can do the work of five horses  in this difficult country with a very  great economy of men.���������New York  Sun.  ���������nan  im THE      GAZETTE.

Favorite Hymns  Some Hymns of the Christian -Church,  Both.Old'and Recent Compositions  The majority of sacred songs in  common usage today, arc compositions of modern years. In thc centuries long ago, thc hyinnologist compiled his verses of Prayer and Praise,  a few of-which contributions have  been preserved and arc retained within the hymnals of present times. Thc  earliest effort of the hymn writer is  possibly thai of thc Greek, Synesuis,  an African bishop in the fifth century.  This song, "Lord Jesus, Think On  Mc," has been translated by Rev. A.  \V. - Chalficld, an English clergyman,  anel is considered a masterpiece of  verse in remote era. The greatest  maker of sacred verse was Fanny  Crosby. Upwards of one hundred  selections have emanated from her  pen; of these, "Safe in the Arms of  Jesus," is of world wide knowledge.  To John Mason Ncalc, an Episcopalian vicar, forty-four hymns must be  credited; the major number arc translations from Greek and Latin of very  early, period. One. of thc best known  hymnologists of recent decades,, was  Bickcrsleilh, Bishop of the English  diocese of Exeter.    He has bequeath  d to Christendom, fourteen songs,  f# which, "Till He Come, O Let The  Words," is couched in most sublime  phrasing. Possibly more people have  heard the immortal composition of  Young, "There ij a Happy Land, Far,  Far. away,"- than any other sacred  verse. The evening song, "Glory to  Thee, My God This Night," forever  perpetuates thc name of Bishop Kcir;  Three years later a Frenchman, Jean [another hvmn of thc darkening shael-  rric, called Pradine, built, according lows is Kcble's "Son of, My Soul."

Exhibition   of  War  Superstitions  Professor Archenliold, of thc Royal  Astronomical Society, Berlin has organized an interesting exhibition,  which is being patronized by all  classes of society. It is principally  made up of amulets and charms of  all sorts carried by German soldiers  in the superstitious belief that their  possession is proof against harm or  death.  A particularly popular object advertised as possessing occult protective  power is a "Letter from Heaven,"  which is being sold in huge quantities  at 2 l-2d. to 3d. a copy.  It is described as "an unfailing  shield against all hateful persons,  witchcraft, and works of the devil."  Bearing the mvslic initials "S. r.F.K.

An Outdoor Fireplace  Cooking out of doors, with the exception of baking, means health, ples-  ure, and comfort for the cook, and  doing the washing there, ..oo, comes  under the same heading. This is, of  course, for the hot summer clays, and  pives the housewife a taste of lhc enjoyments and benefits of camping.  Thc fireplace needed is very simple  of construction. Set up two piles of  bricks about two feet high and three  feet long, leaving one and one-half  feel between or room enough to build  a fire. Then ; rocurc a piece of heavy  tin or sheet iron large enough to extend a little over the bricks, say two  by three and one-half feet, and place  over thc bricks. Over this any food  can be easily cooked. Fuel can be  economized by burning any rubbish  that has accumulated, as nothing in  the way of fuel is harmful, to this  primitive stove. Then set thc table  out under the trees, and thc family  has thc pleasure of camping'without  leaving home.  *?W>U\Wl&mZ^������Z^&m%53B3SE2&mBga  Aquatic Food Plants  The collection of aquatic food  plants secured in a; recent expedition  to China arc of specialintcrcst. These  include water chestnuts, water nuts  and a number of aquatic bulbs, as well  as the water bamboo. Thc Chinese  have mastered through centuries of  experiments the process of using  swamp lands for thc raising of food  crops, and their success As believed  to point to commercial possibilities  for sonic of our swamp regions where  reclamation by drainage is not practicable. The kauba, sometimes called  the wild rice or water bamboo, now  to be made the subject of experiment,  is a vegetable in taste, somewhat between grass r.nd asparagus. The swollen stalks of the plant aro eaten much  like our asparagus. Thc ordinary  bamboo, contrary to lhc prevailing  opinion, is not an aquatic, plant, ami  for successful cultivation calls for  fertile and well drained soil.

Hotel   Keeper,    St.   Phillippc,   Que  A Call to the Towns  Bacon for Britain  An Enormous Market Exists For the  Canadian      'roduct   in   the  Old Country  As is well known, hogs have reached an tinpreccelently high price���������  $11.65 per cwt., being paid for them  on the Toronto market. The fact  that even with live hogs at this fig1  tire, shipments of bacon arc regularly  going forward to England, will serve  to illustrate very clearly thc demand  for that product on thc. British market. Without doubt, Canada stands  in a better position today to develop  a permanent bacon., trade with Great  Britain than has ever been the case  before. To elo this, however, there  must be volume of supply. There is  very good reason lo believe that, although prices cannot be expected to  remain at thc present level, the demand for bacon in the face of the sup  When Roads Through Country Points  Are Kept in Better Repair Than  in the Towns  It is high time that the rural sections of America called to the towns  to mend their ways anel their streets  This is our conclusion after a summer tour of hundreds of miles through  a prosperous country. Wc found highways in ruial sections well kept and  comfortable, but there was a far different story in the small cities and in  the numerous towns and villages  through which we passed. Thc main  country roads were smooth boulevards compared with thc streets in  thc average town or city. In some  places where thc homes were handsome and thc factories busy the  streets were full of. holes.  It was a striking illustration of the  greatest road failure in America. Small  cities and towns have lagged. A roads  expert, who has recently travelled  over most of thc country, says thc  fault is general. In the pasl five  years the rural situation has vastly  improved, but thc small city and town  showing is satl. When you near a  settlement you begin  to bump.  For this the explanation is that thc  town or city has too much local politics. A banker said lo us: "Wc have  two factions anel each is so busy fighting the other that nothing is done for  the town." It Is a great pity. Thc very  communities that ought to be ahead  on good thoroughfares arc behind.  Perhaps farmers might jog them into right action by taking their patronage to towns and cities that provide good streets to travel over.���������  Country Gentleman.

Of  this monev Canada only obtained  ������3,324,511.

This  market is as remunerative ns the bacon trade,..although it is not likely to  prove as constant.

At first the work was  done by hand, but in thc time of Job  wc know that animals were used for  the purpose. Hc says: "Will the unicorn harrow the valley after thec?"  Even today in the remote districts  of "Europe thc brush harrow is used.  But thc march of progress docs not  halt for the "remote districts to fall  into line.. Wc find that the old "A" harrow which originally consisted of  thorn bushes with cross bars attached  had developed among the Romans into a system of cross bars in which  were inserted numerous tcLth.  This remained thc standard until  the sixteenth century. Since then the  evolution has been as follows: wooden  frame with wooden teeth, wooden  frame with iron teeth and those made  wholly of iron. Thc second, type is  slill used to a considerable extent.  In dry farming practice, probably  no other implement plays so imporl-  a t a part in moisture conservation  as docs thc drag harrow. If wc did  not have the harrow the much talked  of "soil mulch" would bc very liard  to obtain. There arc other implements on the farm which wc could  use lo produce this mulch, but the  small acreage covered by them in a  elay makes the cost of production so  great that their ,usc is prohibitive.  The' two outstanding features of thc  harrow in producing a mulch are the  rapidity with which thc work can be  accomplished and thc efficiency of ihc  work done.  Not only is the harrow a splendid  implement to use in producing cr restoring a mulch but is beneficial -ilso  as a packer. In a newly ploughed  land especially, the harrow teeth go  well into the ground, breaking up the  lumps right through the furrow slice,  compacting the soil, and thus materially aiding thc capillary action of thc  moisture.  For every pound of dry matter produced in a plant about six hundred  pounds of water arc absorbed. Experiments have proven that a single stick  of the harrow has checked evaporation to the extent of one hundred tons  of water per acre. This is equivalent  to an additional yield of four bushels  of wheat per acre.  As a weed cradicator, thc harrow  is indispensable, but when it is to bc  used for weed destruction thc weeds  should never bc allowed to get beyond their seconel leaves. When the  xveeds arc at this stage, on a warm  dry day, thc harrow will kill millions  of "them. In summer-fallowing from  the lime the. land is shallow ploughed,  double disced-thc previous fall until  freeze-up thc season it is falloweel thc  harrow can bc used at intervals to  good advantage for accomplishing,the  following purposes: Killing weeds;  conserving moisture; making a firm  seed bed; stirring up the surface of  the ground and permitting access of  proper amounts of air, thus giving thc  soil bacteria an opportunity to change  the plant food from an unavailable to  mi available condition.  The mcthoel lo employ in harrowing a young grain crop will depend on  ihe object of the harrowing*. If it is  done to restore a mulch and to stimulate growth the time selected should  bc when the work will injure ^c  young plants as little as possible. This  will be when thc plant is just showing above the ground anel again when  the grain is three or four inches high.  If the harrowing is to destroy young  weeds we must expect some of the  grain lo bc elestroyed also. When  this is to bc done the sowing should  bc thicker than usual to allow for injury. High framed long tootheel ln.r-  rous are best adapted for this purpose. Care should be taken that it  docs not track, for if this occurs the  grain Avill be damaged while little  harm will be done to the weeds.  Damage is often done to growing  crops by'harrowing when (he leaves  arc wet and _ full of water as they  arc more crisp and tender at this  time than on a warm, dry day.

McCallum of  Keremeos were visitors in town  Friday evening.  Thirteen voters from Princeton and Copper mountain went  through here yesterday by  autos to vote in Greenwood and  Phoenix. The sentiment appeared to be strongly anti-  Bowser.  The last Hedley meeting of  the campaign was held in the  opera house Friday evening.  The speakers were L. W. Shatford and A. H. B. MacGowan.  W. A. McLean was chairman.  F. A. Haggen of the Mining  and Engineering Record, Van  couver, also spoke on  conditions.  The polling officials in Hedley  today are: Jas. Glark, returning  officer; G. E. French, poll clerk;  A. gMcGibbon, constable; J. I).  Brass, agent for Shatford; J.  K. "Eraser, agent for Conklin.  The poll was kept open from 8  a. m. till 7 p. m., no order-in-  council having been issued dur-  ing the day changing the statutory hours.  Pte. W. Burrows of the 172nd  is in- town on harvest leave. He  is ^enthusiastic about his regiment, who average 32years, 165  pounds in weight, 5ft. 8Ain. in  height, and captured nearly all  the events in the brigade sports  at Vernon last week. Private  Burrows was awarded first prize  as Jthe most soldierly man in  the brigade. He is a Nova Sco ���������  tian and has three brothers at  the front.  Pte. J. M. Donovan of the  Sixth Field Engineers returned  Tuesday from Valcartier camp,  Quebec, invalided home. When  the history of the war is written it is not improbable that  more Canadian casualties will  be recorded as resulting from  Valcartier camp than the filing  line. Jack Casey, also of Hedley, has been invalided at Valcartier. The trouble appears  to be tubercular, whether due  to camp conditions or not is not  known.  ;..
