On tho cover a map in out-  lino is given with the location of the  farms,  stations and sub-BtationB     indicated by signs.    Beneath the     map  is an invitation to aU having agricultural problems     thoy wish solved    to  send them to any of the principals at  the farms     or superintendents of    the  stations, the post ofliee addresses     of  whom are given.   Director Gritdale, of  the experimental farms, says that the  first  number   was so  flatteringly    received that he and his sl.aU'  aro     encouraged to hope for even a better reception for this number.   E. S. Archibald,     Dominion     husbandman, deals  with live stock;  F. 0. Elford, Dominion poultry husbandman, advises     on  tho care and    disposition    of poultrv;  W. L.

Shutt, Dominion chemist  briefly furnishes advice regarding    the  farm    water    supply.   .J.    F. Watson,  chief officer of tho extention and publicity  division,  emphasizes  the invitation to the 760,000 occupiers of farm  lands in the Dominion to address problems  for solution  to principals    and  superintendents.   A copy    of  ".Seasonable Hints," can be .had free on addressing the publication branch,     department of agrioulture, Ottawa.  Encourage Seed Growing  In 1013-M, accord ng to information  gathered and supplied by Mr. George  11. Clark, the Dominion seed commissioner, Canada imported from Franco  and Germany no loss than 000,743  pounds of beet and mangol seed; from  Holland and France, 360,849 pounds of  turnip seed, nnd from Franco alone  32,060 pounds of carrot seed, ltaddieh  cabbage, cauliflower, celery and parsnip seed were also imported in largo  quantities, mainly from Franco. While  it is thought there was nearly sufficient  of these seeds of hand to moot the requirements for this year, theso channels being closed, for 1916 there will  plainly l>o a dearth.  Tho foregoing important facts are  duly set down in Bulletin No. 22, of  the Second Series of the Central Experimental farm, of which M.0. Malte,  Ph..iV, Dominion agrostologifit, and  W. Ti Macouu, Dominion horticulturist, are tho authors. "Canada," the  Bulletin very emphatically, says should  mako herself Independent of foreign  markets, and produce at home what  now has to be bought abroad. Canadian farmers should not only try to  meet tho emergency demand for field  root seed in the immediate future, but  should also try to establish a permanent seed-growing industry which  would make them independent of any  other countries. There will ���.-ssi'i.'tlly  not bo a dissenting voice to this doctrine us a general principle and the  bulletin, which is being gratuitously  distributed and can bo had on application to the publications brunch, department of agriculture, Ottawa, tells  in detail how this desirable state "of  affairs can be brought about. Cases  are given where successful effort has  already been made), but the data regarding the matter, it would seem,  is not quite as available us could be  wished. What is definitely known is  that quantities ot seed are brought in  from abroad, much of which it is believed could, with the requisite care,  bo produced in Canada and of a character as good and high.  General principles for successful  seed-growing, of soleotion, otc, are  laid down in the bulletin, which also  details methods that could profitably  be adopted for planting, threshing  and cleaning many spooies of field  roots. A list that is given of the boat  varieties of vegetables for stock seed  is of good practical value. Fiirm-rt-  and gardeners are also reminded that  as an inducement to tho growing of  field roots and gardon seeds in Canada the Dominion government is willing to aid soi*d growers by cash subventions, particulars of whroh can b��  obtained from tho sued branch, do-  pariment of agriculture, Ottawa. It  should lie added that as (he purpose  is to encourage the growing of select  \ ed* seed, only bona fide growers ol  such seed aro eligible to receive the  subventions.  Drinking a Ton of Water  Tho astonishing statement issues  from the experts ot the agricultural  department at Washington that growing plants require about a thousand  times their weight in water to bring  them to maturity.  The chemist has appraised us of the  very large percentage of this fluid  whieh enters into the constitution of  all living things and most inorganic  substances, but th�� statement just  quoted gives a still more adequate  idea of tho role which water plays in  sustaining life upon the globe.  The housewife who takes a loaf of  broad out of the oven for instance, is  lifting a product which in case the  loaf weighs a pound, represents tho  utilization of about two tons of water  that is 500 gallons.  Tho 10 pound roast of beef which  tho family attacks at dinner has boon  brought to its maturity only at the  expense of 300 tons oi water, which,  ns a little figuring assures us, is exactly 76,000 gallons, or 600^000 pints. |  The soup, the fish, the vegetables,  the desert, the beverages, all represent equally surprising amounts of  the fluid and as most of us eat throe  meals a day it is not difficult to realize that, directly and indirectly, each  of us is absorbing literal rivers.  For instance, the average man nses  a ton of water for drink in ths touts��  of a year, 100 tons in bread raid -100  tons in meat. This of itself figures  out 4,000,000 quarts, which would keep  quito a respectable river flowing tor  some time.  Tn addition there is the water in tho  vegetables, the desserts, and various  other articles, of diet, which, in all  probability, doubles the estimate.  Two-thirds of the earth's surface is  water, and normally the air contains  a very large percentage of tt, while  numberless streams exist beneath the  surface. It is, all told, a tremendous  volume, but, in the light of the facts,  none too great to support, the vast  life processes, which, whether in plant  animal depend absolutely upon it.

The European war has produced  some astonishing results in metal conditions in the United States, but its  world-wide effect upon sugar has been  most, pronounced, it is declared. The  war has shown the dependence of sug  sr consumers upon the cane sugar  orops o! the world rather than upon  beet sugar crops. Before the war the  growth of beet BUgar production was  proceeding at a rate whioh made it  praotically certain that it was merely  a matter of time before the world  would be getting more than SO per  cent, of its total sugar supplies from  beets and tho influence of beets upon  prioes was probably predominant, because -beet crops are raised in nations  having control of the course of world  finances and world prices.  The war, in the opinion of the bast  cugar experts, means a continuanoe ol  high-priced sugar, certainly during the  first half of 19113. Prioes for December sugar are quoted at 3,89 compared with 3.88 for June. And this centres attention. t  High prices are doing the natural  th ng and stimulating production not  alono in Cuba, but among American  beet growers. The expectation when  the sugar tariff was changed xan that  1915 would see the American l*Ml crop  down to 500,000 tons, and uossibly  even less. It looks now its if the  United States' beet crop would run  between 850,000 and 900,000 tons an-1  establish a new high record for ell  time. In faot, United StaW beet  crop may prove to be one-third as  large as the Cuban yield.  How Big Guns Are Made  Steel for gunmaking is made m an  open hearth furnace from which ingots  weighing up to seventy tons can readily be cast.  Then comes the forging of the ingot,  for small guns the ingot is forged  solid, but for six-inch and larger the  ingot is forged hollow. The steam  hammers which do the work can give  blows equal to 700 tons.  Tests begin. Ismail pieces of the  steel are out off, hardened in oil end  pulled asunder in the jaws ol -i hydraulic press. Ths strain runs up to  forty-six tons per square inoh.  II the tests are satisfactory lhe ingot  goes on to the lathe to be "rough  bored" inside and "rough turned" out  side'  Then the barrels are hardened by  being heated in oil at a temperature  of 1500 degrees fahrenheit. The cooling  must be very Blow, end this is mating,  ed by burying the barrel in sand.  Then comes the final boring, which  loaves the barrel smooth inside and  out, and next a fresh heating and  cooling. This is called "annealing"  and is most neoessary to preserve the  toughness of the steel.  Now the heart ol the gun is ready  and it goes elsewhere to be built up  to the required strength by adding  successive layers of steel hoops. These  are put on hot and when they cool  shrink into place.  Our big naval guns are all "wire-  wound." The barrel revolves on a  lathe whits steel tape a quarter-inch  wide and one-eighth thick is wound on  at a tension of something like forty  tons. This process gives the guns  enormous strength and entirely does  away with any possibility ol an accident due to any flaw there might be  in the body ol the gun.  CUT HIS TONGUE OUT  That his tongue had been out out  by the Germans by whom he had been  taken prisoner was the message conveyed under the stamp of a letter  written to Miss A. Boyle, brother ol  A, Boyle of Revelstoke, by a liiend  who had been fighting at the front.  "Keep the stamp as a souvenir," said  the letter from the prisoner of war  Miss Boyle, suspecting'that a message^  was concealed under the stamp, re  moved it from the envelope. Under the  stamp was tho message. "They have  cut my tongue out.''

A number of  bathers around the Aquatic pavilion  have lately taken a notion to swim  out to meet the Sicamous as she  comes in to the wharf.

Kirkby in his efforts to prevent some  of thoso swimmers from thus committing suicide came near running his  boat ashore, and was naturally very  indignant  when ho made the landing.

THAYER, D.V.S.  VETERINARY SURGEON  (Gndtuss McCill Univenity)  Residence : GLENN AVENUE  Messages nay be left at the office oi  Messrs. Rattenbury Sc Williams  An order prohibiting the manufacture ol cotton fabrics after August  1, has been issued by the" military  authorities in the provinos' of Brandenburg, in whioh Berlin is tutuateh.  France is going to tax non-fighters.  A bill waa introduced this week in the  Chamber of Deputies providing for a  monthly tax of 76 oents phis a 90 per  cent, inorease in direct taxation upon  all males who have not joined the  army. ,  Is the whole history of the invidious  art of fouling one's own nest, sayj  ths "Manchester Guardian" then has  probably never been so complete a  masterpiece as the 'war babies' outcry  of a tew weeks ago. It is difficult  enough to think with charity of those  i who began it, though the number of  ordinary sober-minded ' people who  helped to spread it by accepting' it  and passing on wild statementa on the  slightest evidence or on no evidenoe at  all shows that it is to be reckoned at  part of the psychology of war, like  tbe amazing story of the Russian  troops who traveiled through England  last September.  The German Emperor, according 10  The London Times, in a speech to a  deputation ot bankers, who had initiated on an interview in order to  point' out to the Emperor the finanoial  difficulties of the situation and the  grave risk attending tha purs <��nce of  the campaign through another winter,  stated that . -ihe war would and in  October. The bankers ara alleged to  have declared that even ii I he war  were brought to an end immediately  and an indemnity obtained, Germany's position would be diffiou.t, but  that il the war were prolong ul llie  German. Empire would become' utterly  bankrupt, It was in reply 'o these  representations that the Emperor in  understood to have declared that the  waa would end in October.  It would be difficult to imagine  more vivid and throbbing picture than  that presented to tbe mind of a visi-  tor to Krupp's���the greatest arms and  ammunition factory in the world. The  artist who portrays the feverish scenes  at Essen appears to have met one ol  the German military technicians who  are���somo of them���consulting chemical advisers to the Kaiser as well. His  impressions are cited in the columns ol  the 'Gaulois:'  Ever since August it has been an intense fantastic life of unceasing toil  day and night. A molten mass of carbide flows in endless stream from the  puddling furnace to the crucible, and  thence to the stamp-hammers which  are mounted on three platforms, one  of armored beton, and one of massive  oak (the heart of oak still1 used by the  HohenzoUerns for tneir coffins). In  the midst of these streams of lava  the workmen are driving long spikes  into the fused metal to try lhe ' texture of the alloy whioh is to yield  steel, faultness, dose-grained, and  clean as the flesh of a chi:d. Naked  Cyclops they are, ilt-prot jotod by  their leathern bucklers, their hiked  skin as brittle as glass thread.  See them at the coffee hour. They  fling themselves upon the men who  bring the huge jars of hot liquid and  dispose of their portion at a single  draught. Tnis coffee, whioh would  scald the throat of any ordinary human being, cools the fever of these  hell-bound spirits. Reinforced by the  regulation allowance of sugar, it  readjusts and restores their nerves.  Munitions in the Making  To oonstruot the 16-inch gun a speoial plant is neoessary. The formidable  equipment of the works is but a thin  shell for the hatching of suoh monsters. Fifty-ton masses of steel are  surrounded by a brasier whioh keeps  them simmering. Then elephantine  cranes catch up tile Mocks and roll  along with them on rails through the  city of fire and hammers. You can  imagine these instruments in* oppera  tion. The reverberations are suoh that  it seems as if all Essen is being bombarded by howitzers.  Essen has long been aeoustomed to  the noise of munitions in the making.  It well remembers tba manufacture of  the famous 14.5 guns for Wilhelm-  shaven, and the'effeot of the periods of'  ���rial. But the cannon of this war  have been more colossal still, and the  wonder is that human nerves even of  the giants who are building them can  endure the thunder.  At the rolling shops of Solingen the  masses of Bteel are retailed by the  pound. There the sabres and bayonets are tempered. But it is not the  men employed in casting operations  ithat are the most to be pitied. It is  the pyroteohny factory which iB the  real inferno upon death. The army of  chemists, artisans, makers of shells,  of incendiary powder��� all these dispensers of death��� are literally devoured by the atmosphere of the  workshops, in whioh the acids vaporise a more subtle fire, the artificial  fire of men. The air of the munitions  faotories, is, as it were, a cancer that  fastens on to eaoh individual, eating  him minute by minute, organ by organ, and only* relaxing its grip when  he is dead. Truly a plaoe where all  hops must bs abandoned I There the  men no longer seem made ol flesh and  blood and musole. They' remain nerves and rhtelKgenoe��� the deadly reactions fight for their,possession, und  their spirit alons carries them  through to the.end ol the task.  Some ol these men are no longer  able to retain any food. Thsy are  shadows. They work oa all the same,  not realizing their condition. 'After  the war we will take a rest,' they  say, allured by the system of bonuses.  To these no coffee is served out but  barrels of milk several times a day,  as an antidote to the poison they have  absorbed. Medieal specialists patch up  tbe most exhausted By means of special hypodermic injections. Chemistry  kills them and chemistry keeps them  alive. The machinery of ths organism  of these men is nothing but threads.  The tissues, according to medical testimony., ara literally eaten up by the  poison.  But philosophical speculation is' no  part of Krupp's business. It is a  splendid year@the record year of the  national industry of war. Each will  have his share, from the humblest  stokers, pudrUers and hammererB. to  the officer-engineers, and staff-generals, up to the Kaiser himself, who  Will 1 reoeive his.dividends on the ,900  and odd millions (of marks) entrusted by htm to tha Krupps.   At Esse 1'  Liquid Fire in Warfare  Philip Gibbs, writing in the London  Daily Chronicle, thus describes the use  of "liquid.fire" by the Germans:  A stretcher bearer), working with a  French ambulance unit at the front,  in the Argonne, confirms the faot that  the enemy has adopted the new and  horrible method of attacking trenches  by drenching them with an inflammatory liquid.  A detailed narrative of the first Attaok by liquid fire was given by one  of the less seriously burnt soldiers.  "It was yesterday evening," he said,  "just as righ't fell, that it happened.  The day had been fairly oahn and nothing forewarned us, as is usual, of a  German attack.  "Suddenly one of our comrades said:  'Hello, what is this ooming down, on  us. Anyone would think it was petroleum!  "At that time we were incredulous  of the truth, but the liquid whioh  reached in two jets, cleverly directed,  was undoubtedly some kind of petroleum. The Germans pumped it on us  by means of a hose, perhaps specially  made for the purpose.  "The sub-lieutenant who commanded  us made us put out our pipes. But it  was a useless precaution, for a few  seconds later incendiary bombs began  to rain down upon us. The whole of  the trench immediately buret into  flame, and in order to complete their  barbarous work roese bandits took  advantage ol oar disturbance by advancing on the trench and throwing  burning torches into it.  "None of us escaped this torrent of  fire. .Our clothes were soaked with  petroleum, and we wore soon enveloped in flames, and forced to abandon  our position. But we waited nevertheless, until our comrades in the second line of trenches were ready to defend themselves from the German attack which developed a few minutes  later.  "The throwers 6f the deadly inflammatory liquid expidated their crime  quiokly and thoroughly, the French  soldiers' ardor being increased tenfold  by the .desire for revenge, and their  counter oharge with bayonets caused  terrible havoc in the enemy's ranks.  "In 1908 a German named Richard  Fielder took out patents in Paris for  hiB invention by which liquid fire could  be pumped out for 'the production of  great masses of flame.'  "The inventor stated that the apparatus could be used for military  and other purposes. The patents wero  renewed in 1911, and the designs exhibiting the details of the invention  show a German soldier with pointed  helmet pumping the burning liquid  into a trench.  The internment of female evenly  aliens as well as male ones has been  undertaken by the. Dominion government, and there are now a number al  women at Spirit Lake. They are being kept in separate parts of Ihe  camp, though families, of course ute  being kept together.  Certain German firms, according to  the United States ambassador to Berlin, attach slips to their letters to aid  in a movement Sow popular in German business circles to suppress all  unnecessary teriuu of politeness in correspondence, as as 'Sir,' 'Gentlemen,'  'Yours truly,' and the like. The slip  translated, reads: 'Following the example of other firms, I also omit Irom  my business letters the unnecessary  terms of politeness, as%ell us assurances of self-evident esteem. I request that you reciprocate in your  correspondence with me."  the quostion of victory is of minor  moment. Munitions ara being expended and the bill is growing. Even in  defeat the empire will pay. And. tomorrow it will refill the arsenals  whioh were crammed by 44 years of  frantio labor and emptied in seven  months.  ....  The guns are tested on the ground  Ior target practice. There is a perpetual tumult of artillery rolling along  the sooty,' fir-clad slopes of tbe Fich-  tengebirge, where on holidays the Cyclops rest their soorohed, listless eyes  on the Dantesque panarama ol the  town. In the midst ot this,inferno the  grand palace, the Essen-Hoi, where the  Austrian, Bulgarian and Turkish officers are entertained as the guests ul  the firm, is a blaze of-light. These representatives of their respective governments have the right to watch over  the execution ol their orders. All the  luxuries of modern life are) theirs. A  pleasant existence, plaintive Tzigane  musio, champagne, ehoioe flowers and  fruits, costing Bertha Krupp's* consort and the firm ��20,00*. a'year. Essen spends ��20,000 a year on merrymaking. What a percentage on aU  this suffering and crinasl This year the  firm can afford more, for the downpour of steel is producing milliards  daily. -    . . ...,,.
