' A latter was read from the Attorney  General in reference to the matter of  conveying tho potion of foreshore  near ths power house to the C.P.R.,  for which purpose a by-law had re-  oantly been v    m!v   Tha rjrovinoaal inspector si munioi-  palttles advised the oounoil that it was  his intention shortly to visit the oity.  Hr. Jertnan Hunt asked the oounoil  to replace tba hitching posts which  had been removed by f.he contractors  in putting ia ths oement sidewalks ia  . front of his plaos. This was referred  to the Board ol Works..  A rebate pi 4i& waa ordered to be  paid, to Mr. W. 0. Marshall for ex-  pauses incurred ia making plana of his  plaos. on Pendozi street when the latter was widened.  It waa decided to extend the date  for the rebate ot one-sixth on general  taxes to October 31st, and for this  purpose a by-law was introduced and  (riven* a firat, second and third readings.  Messrs. Caaorso Bros, waited on the  oounoil in reference to a letter whioh'  bad been sent to their firm requiring  them to provide some other means  than a the sewer for carrying off the  waste water from their condensing  plant. Mr. Casorso contended that  this was imposing an unnecessary hard  ship upon them.. He said the amount  of water stated to be turned into the  sewer was exaggerated..  A long discussion ensued, and it'was  eventually decided to have the waste  water metered aa it entered the sewer.  A suggestion that they be given flat  water rates for the restaurant and lor  the rooms in thc blook * j not entertained by the oounoil, it being pointed  out that the porioy waa to meter .all  possible services, as flat rates were  conducive to waste.  The meeting then adjourned until  Monday next. ...  PRISONERS OF WAB MAY BE  SENT TO OKANAGAN  German prisoners of war are likely  ' to bs brought to Vernon In ihe near  future, say. the News, ths military  authorities having taken over the  larva building fronting oh Lone street  just west' of Mara avenue, to be ussd  aa a military prison. Ths building,  whieh was originally a provincial jail  but until Inst autumn was ussd aa a  branch of the provincial hospital for  ths insane, is well suited to the pur-  noses for which it will be used. A  lone of men Is already at work, making alterations and repairs.  A number of Austrians havs already  bean ' brought nn from tbe boundary  as they were trying to get'over into  States, and are held at Vernon.  Miss Olive M.

No little consternation was caused in  town just as we go to press by the  antics of a man with a rifle, who  dassd with drink Bet out to'shoot up  the town. He seems to have lirst  laid siege to the provincial 1 ilice office,'"from behind somo'^lc. '���;. wood  near Mr. Bagger's house. Finally  abandoning bis effort' to shoot Magistrate Weddell he ran amuck down ths  main street, shooting a dog pear the  O.K. Lumber Co.'s office,- and narrowly missing a small boy on a bioyole.  Then he took aim at an Italian who  dodged' into Dalgleish & Harding's  store, frantically demanding a rifle  to retaliate. He was not supplied,  however. A crowd gathered and gave  chase, .but kept discretely to whatever  oover they could. Continuing his  'course along Pendozi street and down  Lawrence avenue, the man took reckless aim at everybody he oame across  as well as his drunken condition would  allow. Alderman Copeland had a  narrow escape, a shot fired at him  smashing one of the spokes ol his  buggy wheel and a second one missing  him by only a few inohes.  D. McGuire only saved his life by  a hasty duck, the bullet smashing an  electric wire beyond him. Two Japs  reoeived several badly aimed shots and  saved themsejves by (light.  Finally after having emptied his gun  ot which--he had somehow lost ths  stook, the min was captured and  marched to the coop.  tie waa too'drunk to givo any account of himself but ho is supposed to  be a Swede named Nelson, and a prospector.

Eight hundred sores, most ol it excellent land and well suited lor agriculture, were thrown open by the Dominion    government    last Wednesday   ,r Revelstoke in the Columbia river  canyon 'for settlement as homesteads.

Much hus been accomplished during  the past week and step by step' at  first and later with an almost disorganized stampede the invading armies  have been driven back until they have  almost retreated over tbe French frontier. There is a general feeling ot relief evident at thia breakdown of the  German plans in Francs, but the leading military authorities are emphatic  in their warnings that great as have  been the advantages gained, the most  serious part of the war has not yet  been reached and the publio must be  prepared for still harder fighting and  possibly reverses. Though considerably damaged both in strong th and  morale, the .Germans will no doubt  gather their forces for a determined  stand, and experts say that the great  deciding battle is yet to come.  The German right wing, under Gen-  oral Von Kluek which made such a  sensational and rapid advance On  Paris, and .an equally sensational  swing baok to ths southeast is report-  The Austrian losses in Galicia . have  been placed at 300,000'in killed, wa>un-'  ded and prisoners, or nearly one-third  nf their forces. They have also lost  more than two-thirds of their available artillery. It is rumored that the  Kaiser has left tbe western forces to  lead the defence against the advancing Russians in Prussia.  The German fleet still' avoids un on  en conflict, though dispatches would  seem to indicate that skirmishes have  taken place.  In the absence ot fu'ler details specu  lations are being indulged in as to  how lontr Germany can stand tie pressure. Famine is already beginning tn  make its abearance, and with al!  trade outlets cut off the suffering must  be tremendous. Already hints are  beina? thrown out of an internal re  volution, and if suoh a calamity as  Bails them, tbe whole fighting machinery must fall to pieces.  No peace proposals have yet been  seriously discussed, though suggestions  along this line have emanated from  America. .  London does not talk of peace and  the rumors from America of suggestions by Count Voo Bernstorff, German ambassador at Washington,  arouse little comment.  As time passes it becomes apparent  thnt there are certain things which  Germany must pay if the Allies win.  cd to be ; practically out ol business One thing is an enormous indemnity  and frequent dispatches persist in lbs to Belgium. Statements of high offi-  rumor that the army, or at any rato cials in London indicate that this  a large section of it has surrendered; stands foremost in Britain's mind at  The Crown Prinoe's army: whieh held the present moment. Alsaee and Lor-  the centre of the.opposing forces line rnino must be returned and it is -ex-  been driven back to a line a few miles' peoted that France will also demand  northwest of Verdun. Heavy rains are the return ot the enormous indemnity*  said to be rendering the retreat,   and of 1870  the moving of heavy artillery incresei  invlv difficult- It is possible that the  Kaiser's troops will endeavor to rally  ova* the Luxemburg frontier in life  neighborhood of Metz, which is strongly fortified. -  The Russians continue their successes in the eastern theatre of < the wnr,  and it seems oertain that the Austrian  menace    has been    almost   removed.  Still another requirement, if a large  part of the British public haB its '.ay,  will be the dismantlement ot tho German fleet.  There is no mistaking the intention  ol the Allies, Great Britain leading,  onoe for all to destroy Prussian militarism,' making it impossible for the  world's peace ever again to be disturbed as in the present war.  It ia reported that when tha German general who was captured by the  French and brought into the capital was searched there was found in his  pocket hia nomination to the governorship of Paris, signed by Emperor William.   The name of this general was not divulged.  It is officially announced that the German cruiser Hela was Sunk September 13 by . a torpedo from a British submarine. Moat of the crew, it is  said,-were saved.  The Scotsman states that the German submarine whioh sank the British  cruiser Pathfinder has itself been sunk. On Wednesday last, according to the  account, .a part of the British fleet on the lookout for German submarines,  became aware of the presence ot one.The British vessels divided*when the  submarine appeared with only its periscope showing,  By some miscalculation, probably in a final effort to esoape the cruisers,  the submarine conning tower and upr or- structure Suddenly appeared ip, the  midst of ths English vessels. The doomed vessel was within range of seven  British cruisers and irom every one of them guns crashed out. In ten seconds seven shots entered the frail shell ot the submarine.  The correspondent of lhe Central News at Dieppe, under date of Monday  transmits a report that tbe German army under General Von Kluok has been  forced to surrender. The correspondent says* "A report has reached Dieppe that the extreme left oi the Allies after making an encircling movement,  by way of Roye and Ham and joining a force from the Boulonge district,  haa compelled General Von Kluck to surrender with, according to one  statement, 14 000 men, and according to another statement, with 25,000 men  and'a quantity ot guns and war material."  A dispatch from Paris gives the Figaro as authority for the statement  that ths Russian government has decided to cancel all German patents within the empire.  A statement given out by the British official press bureau says:  "Thc enemy ars still occupying a strong position to the, north of the  Aisne and lighting Ib going on along the whole sine.  "The Crown Prince's army has been driven further back and is now on  the tins ot Varennea, Consenvoye and Onus.  "Six hundred prisoners and lit guns were captured by thc corps on the  right of the British.  "Rain has made the roads heavy and is increasing'* ths difficulty of the  German army in its retreat."  Prince William ol Wied, who is still at Lugano, according to the newspapers has appealed to Italy to protect Albania.  The correspondent ol thc Daily Telegraph at Moscow reports the capture of a Zeppelin on theRusso-Prussian frontier.  S. AMBASSADOR REPRESENTING ENGLAND AND FRANCE  James W. Gerard, Ambassador to Germany, is hare shown bidding farewell to many American friends at the railway station, Berlin, who, at the  time, wero fleeing from the war infested country while they had the chance.  These are busg times for tbe Ambassador as besides handling the diplomatic matters for his own country he also represents England and France  during the present crisis.

The  by a tew of the most prominent   men motors   ars about   sinty   horsepower  in Canada.  The equipment consists'of 16 automatic maohine guns, capable of firing  400 shots per minute, mounted on  eight armored motor trucks, four motor runabouts, 18 motor cycles, ons  repair oar, In whloh every conceivable  kind of material for repair work is installed, one tool car, carrying trcr.ch-  inir and every other kind ol tools  neoessary tor modern warfare, and a  complement of 120 officers and men.  With the equipment will be carried  tour extra guns. The motor truoks  will carry tripods, so that it will be  possible to take the guns off tho machine* and sat them up wherever  each, and arc capable of travelling  forty miles an hour.  Ths gentlemen who have made this  (rift to ths Dominion government are:  The Hon. Clifford Sifton, Thomas  Ahern, Warren Y. Sopor, J. R. Booth  Sir Henry' K. Egan, Ottawa; Sir.  Thomas Shaughnessy, H. S. Holt, Mortimer H. Davis,. Hugh Paton, R. Bru-  tinel, Bentley Drummond, Montreal;  T. A. Burrows, Winnipeg; C. W. Mo-  Lean, W. A.

Most of  ihe man ars chauffeur.;end mechanics.  The formation of tho Okanagan Ambulance League was continued at a  meeting on Thursday afternoon at the  home of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Whitehead.  Mrs. Whitehead having been voted  to tbe chair called on. Mrs. Gore to  outline the proposed plan.  Mrs. Gore stated that the league was  to work as a "Voluntary Aid Detach-,  ment" to the St. Johns Vmbiilanca;  Association, which is in touch with  the Bed Cross Society and will be kept  informed as to what hospital supplies  and woolen articles arc welcomed at  headquarters for use by our soldiers.  These supplies, as well as funds, are  to be collected and forwarded by the  leaguo to the Red Cross .-on'of.y'a  headquarters at Toronto, for the use  of the Canadian contingent.  Replying to enquiries she stated that  the Red Cross Society has centres in  only three or four of the large cities  of Canada and undertakes somewhat  different work from the St. Johns Ambulance Association, being able to send  fully trained nurses to the front.  -The St. Johns Ambulanoe Association does not aim at training nurses  fullv, though it's training for men in  stretcher work, etc., is complete, the  army medical corps being largely recruited from divisions of the St. Johns  Ambulance brigade.  Classes in "first aid" are being organised in Kelowna and other neighboring towns with the object of organizing divisions of tho "brigade' in  caso help of this nature ahould be required.  In tho needlework department of the  league, the hand work will as far as  possible be given out to workers who  need paid work .of this description, in  accordance with a motion to this effect passed at the public mooting on  Monday, September 7th.  The following were elected officers of  ths Ambulance League:  President,���Mayor Jones.  Vice-Presidents,��� Mrs. Sutoliffe    and  Rev. A. Dunn.  Seoretary.���Mrs. Goro.  Treasurer.���Mr. Challonor,  Ths offioers of tho St. John Ambulance Committee, Mr. J. B. Whitehead  secretary, and Mr. N. D. McTavish,  beside the president, Mayor Jones,  were elected ex officio members of the  league committee. Others elected on  the committee were the Rev. Thos.  Greene, Mrs. N. 1). McTavish, Mrs. G.  F. James, Mrs. J. li. Whitehead, Mrs.  Groves, Miss M. Harvey, Miss Mary  D-'-os.  A committee meeting was called for  Monday. September 14th at 3 p.m., at  the Sons ot England rooms, Keller  blook.  At this meeting the following ladies  wore added to ths committee: Mrs.  Hunt, Miss Bachelor, Miss Jenkins and  Miss Howlett.  A needlework committee was also  formed, consisting ot the following  ladies: Miss 8. F. James, Mrs. J. B.  Whitehead and Mrs. Hunt.  Any ladies wishing to do needlework  knitting, etc., for the use of our soldiers in the field, in camp and in the  hospitals are requested to communicate with any of the following:  Mrs. G. F. James, Abbott street.  Mrs. J. B. Whitehead, Burne avenue.  Mrs. TTunt, Stockwell avenue.  From these they   will receive     lull  Board ot Trade  Monthly Meeting  The Board of Trade meeting Tues-.  day night drew the smallest attendance which has been seen there for  many months, and as a consequence  the meeting occupied but a very short  time, the business being limited to  little more than disposing of the regular correspondence.  This included a letter from the secretary of the exhibition which ia to  take plaoe at Calgary during the International Irrigation Congress, Oct.  5th to 9th, urging that an exhibition  of fruit be sent from Kelowna.  Although it was admitted that in  view of the fact that the. exhibition  came immediately after the tall fair  and that the New .Westminster fair had  been abandoned this year, it would be  be advisabl? for Kelowna to compete,  the Board was not ia a position financially to shoulder the undertaking  and it was decided to hand the recommendation over to the Agricultural Association.  . It was decided to call' the attention  of the road superintendent to the  dangerous condition of the Duck Lake  road near tbe Indian Reserve, where  a deep ditch had been dug along ths  road Bide to catch the water roming  from the hill. Tt was stated that  the ditch was about three feet deep  and entirely unprotected, and there  seemed every likelihood of an automobile dropping into it at night.  A communication was read from the  Government Telegraph department regarding the request of the Okanagan  Telephone Co., for assistance in laying a cable across the lake to connect  the west side with Vernon. Tbe letter stated that the government had  no intention of subsidizing a privets  enterprise. It was also stated that  the government wore building a Una ,  from Kelowna northward on the other  side of the lake.  0   MILITIA TO RETURN HOME  Now that practically all I'angcr nf  attack bv German warships on the  Pacifio ooast has disappeared, the British Columbia militia regiments which  wero mobilised at their respective regimental headauarters four weeks ago,  have been ordered back to their rome.  Only s sufficient number to guard public works, bridges, etc., and to leave  small garrisons at Vancouver, Victoria  and Pribos Rupert are still under arms  and drawing active service pay.  ��������� o "  A son was born to Mr, and Mrs. ?..

The streets will bo brilliantly lighted and artistically decorated,  and the city will be thrown wide open  to thoso attending the Congress. The  exhibition will be in tho same building as the sessions of the Congress,  thus ensuring the delegates the maximum of convenience.  A number of interesting side trips  are offered the delegates and visitors.  Three great transcontinental railways  run through tho city, and over thorn  are trips to pleasure resorts, through  the Rookv Mountains and over the  sunny prairies whoro harvesting and  threshing will be in full si ing at tho  timo of the Congress. A trip���free to  delegates���is that to thc irrigation  project at Bassano. said to be the  largest single project of its kind on  the continent and the second largest  in the world.  Music will bo n feature of the various sessions. Arrangements have beon  made with Max Weil, recently leader  of tho Galgary Symphony orchestra,  to train a choir of five hundred voices  selected from local musical organizations, in patriotic .select ions which will  be rendered at tho opening of the  sessions of tho congress. Mr. Weil  has outlined a program of music consisting of English, French, Irish, Canadian, Scotch, Welsh, American, Russian and Belgian national airs, which  will make the event a memorable one  in the historv of the congress.  Between forty and fifty exhibits have  already been entered for the exhibition in connection with the congress,  and the exhibition committee is daily  adding to the number. It is antici--  nated that before the date for the  closing of entries all the available  space in the convention building will  be filled up. Over twenty-five districts are already in competition for  tho $500 cash award for the best district exhibit, while the Dominion of  Canada, the provinces of Alberta and  British Columbin and the Canadian  1'acifk- railway havo promised displays  Thoro aro n large number of individual exhibits assured.  Tho attendance is oertain to be very  larrre. Notices of appointment of delegates aro coming in rapidly to the  office of the secretary, representing all  influential agricultural, horticultural  and commercial societies in the United  States and Canada. Members of Congress, Members of Parliament, Presidents of Chambers of Commerce and  Boards of Trade are generally accepting the invitation to appoint delegates to this important gathering.  "There iB a ereut movement on to  get back to the land and. to the independent life of the farmer/ Bays l.ieu-  tenant-Governor Imlyea of Alberta, in  the August official bulletin of the International Irrigation Congress, "and  no one who can possible so arrange  his affairs, can afford 'lo miss the opportunity of attending the meetings of  the congress.  Use of Spraying to  Ths Ontario Agricultural College has  been conducting investigations for several years with the object ol discovering some less laborious method of  eradicating dandelions than spudding  them out. Very encouraging results  have been achieved by spraying with  iron sulphate. A 20 per cent solution  is used and it has been found that  sis sprayings during the season will  kill over 1.0 per rait of the weeds. In  spraying lawns, the solution may be  implied with a hund sprayer, or watering oan with a very fins rose, so  that all dandelions will ba thoroughly  drenched. About 48 hours after application, the dandelion laavss will be  found to be blackened and burned.  These can be raked up and the plot  left for about two weeks till new  leaves appear, when another spraying  may be given. No permanent injury  ��� is done to the grass, but white Dutch  olover is almost entirely killed. The  Drocess has the further merit of being  inexpensive.  It should be mentioned that other  experiments, both in the United States  and Canada have not found iron sulphate satisfactory for tha destruction  of dandelions, but the results obtained at ths O.A.O. warrant giving it a  trial on bedly-ihfested lawns.  YOUR ATTENTION - PLEASE  The Kelowaa Exhibition and Fair will  be held nasi Tuesday. Wednesday and  laaisdar. Seatambsr 22nd. 23rd. 24th.  Bowling  Tomorrow (Friday) evening at 7.30  sharp there will be a meeting in Bay-  mer's small hall for the purpose of  forming a league for the winter and  all bowlers and those interested in the  game are requested to be present.  The idea at present is to select four  or six of the best bowlers as captains  and allow them to choose from the  others enough men to form teams. In  this way it is hoped to avoid having  any of the teams too strong or too  weak and making tho league race uninteresting. By ovening up the  strength ol the teams it will give eaoh  club an equal chance, and there is no  doubt that tho bowling game will  prove ono ol tho most enjoyable pastimes over enjoyed during the winter  season in Kelowna.  Thero aro many enthusiastic curlers  in the city who, no doubt will find  bowling a good substitute for their  favorite sport and one that can be  played under any weathor conditions.  Another interesting match game was  played at the Droamland alleys last  Friday night when two picked teams  met in a three-game series.  Like many of the sories that ��� have  been rolled tho scoring was not very  high, but this is to bo expected where  tho majority of tho bowlers are only  beginners, however among them is a  sprinkling of good bowlers who keep  the courage of their toam mates up  by rolling Bplendid scores.  In Friday's game the premier honors  must go to O'Neil who oarried off  both the high score and the high average of the evening, being more than  100 pins ahead of his nearest rival on  either team. Ho rolled 222 in his second gnme and piled up a total' of  589 pins for tho three gnmos, an average of 196 1-3.  Fred Henning also rolled above tho  double century mark in the third  game but his other scores wero not so  good thus his average is not high.  Following are tho scoresl  Erctt  130 147 156-133  Shiedol  150 171 147���168  Harvev . v  101 176 15B-433  Simons  165 158 149���172  Totals     46   652  608-1806  Kerr   125 183 158-165  O'Neil   178 222 189-589  Henning  114 131 213-458  Tettigrew  123 143 126-392  Totals    540   689   686-1816  .   .  .

WHEN BUYING YE AST I  INSIST ON HAVING  THIS PACKAGE  EaWKQisiiai  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES  How Canada Beat Germany  in 1914 Trade War  specified in the general tariff. In other  words, Germany had to pay a duty  33 1-3 Der cent higher than that paid  by any othor country shipping goods  to Canada.  now Trade Declined  Ono would have thought this aotion  would have induced the trade department at Berlin to seek commercial  peace, especially as Germany's share ol  Canada's import trade had risen from  (5.872,000 in 1894 to $12,127,000 in  1903, when the trade war was declared. Its effects wero striking. The total imports of merchandise from Germany, which in 1903 wore 612,000,000  dropped to 08,000,000 in 1904, to 66,-  612,000 in 1905 and to 86,000,000 in  1909, which '-roves that commercial  sulkiness is not remunerative.  The Climb Down  In 1910, tho German government  slated that Canada would be again  given favorable tariff treatment. The  Canadian surtax' on German imports  then automatically oeased. This had  onoe more an astonishing effect on  German trade. The imports from Germany increased from 66,000,000 in  1909 to 614,473,000 in 1913.  'In 1903 Germany declared war on  Canada. It was a trade war and was  characterized by the bitterness and  determination which have been revealed in the present international struggle of arms. Canada accepted the  challenge and seven years later took  the honors of victory. This is the  story: When Canada decidod to grant  a preferential tat iff to the I'nited  Kingdom and various - British possessions, the Gorman government asked  the Dominion for similar tariff treatment. This was refused, the preference having been given to Great  Britain nnd its dependencies because  of the strong commercial and sentimental 'relations which exist bctweon  the units ol the British Empire.  Taking Canada's reply in bad form  Germany announced that imports  from Canada would bo treated loss  favorably than thoso from other  countries. Germany then placed Canada in the leaBt favorable tariff position. Canada retaliated by placing  upon German imports to the Dominion  a    surtax    of one-third of the    duty  A Router dispatoh from Amsterdam  says that an agreement has been  reached whereby France and Germany  will exchange an equal number of  prisoners, officers and men, who may  rejoin their respective armies.  So carefully are they conserving the  food supplies in Berlin, according to  reports reaching London, that the oar-  nivorous animals in the zoo. are to be  killed to save ior the consumption of  tho people the meat that would be fed  to the animals. They are fed largely  on horse flesh, whieh cannot be spared apparently at the present crisis.  Tho same condition prevails in Hamburg, where Hagenbeck's famous zoo,  the largest collection of wild animals in existence, will also suffer  heavily. The less valuable carnivorous animals are being killed off lirst  and fed to the others, and it is hoped  by this meanB ultimately to save a  considerable part of tho collection.  Fish are easily procurable and fish-  eating animals have a longer lease of  Ufe.  To the Kaiser  The following forceful address to tho author of  tho European conflict was written by Mr. R. H.

It has been suggested  also to discontinue the use ol German  words suoh as "Kammerherr" in court  communications and substitute the  Russian equivalent.  THE  Million Dollar  Mystery  OPERA HOUSE  EVERY SATURDAY  It is not always realised that the  civilisation of the low countries which  at the close of the middle .gee slid  the dawn of the renaissance waa the  highest in Europe, Italy excepted, had  its centres in what is now Belgium.  For over two' centuries the fate of  Holland and Belgium were ouriously  different. Holland became one of the  great ' nations, Belgium, first . under  Spain, then under Austria, abd lastly  under France, became tne "cockpit of  Europe." There are large tracts of it  where you cannot walk ten miles in  any direction without crossing the  scene ol a lamous battle or siege. This  state of things, says the Manchester  'Enarland) Guardian, was not satisfactorily ended till 1831, when'the Belgians, wrested their independence from  Holland, securing a guarantee of neutrality (renewed in 1830) from the  powers.  Since 1831 Belgium has made progress. Situated at the meeting point  of English, Frenoh, German and Dutch  civilization it has borrowed from them  all. From England it learned industrial methods and a good deal ol its  politics. France has especially influenced its literature and art and haB tinged its social ideals; Germany has  taught it something in munioipal administration; from Holland it has taken lessons in the sphere of agrioulture  and also in that of high finanoe and  overseas trade. There is muoh that  is jerry-built in its social and economic structure, as is inevitable whore  growth has been so rapid, but its ultimate foundation is a sure one, the  native talent ol an exceptionally gifted and industrious people.  01 what material is Belgian manhood  composed? There is, first, a distinction ol races���the Flemish and I the  Walloons. The Wal.oons are a fiery,  idealistic race. The revolutionary democratization   of the Belgian     *  ly the biggest battalia* of Belgian socialism. In plaoes like Liege  they have a continuous tradition at  iron-Working and gun-making sines a  time when tile timber of the Ardennes  was the fuel of their furnaces.    They  <ive a racial gilt of music, and fatal ���  excitement brings out new popular  tunes and songs daily. There ia a  'ood deal of popular literature in  their curious dialect of Frenoh, whioh  like Provencal, deserves the status of  a language.  To all this the Flemings present  many contrasts. They most' ressmble  the people Of southeastern England.  Artistically their racial bent ia not at  all toward music, but very dsoidedly  toward tainting and sculpture and  also toward the more creative forms  of literature. The two races have,  nevertheless, many traits in common.  Ons such might bs summarized by saying that they1 are pre-eminently nn  engineering people. Another is the  fervor of their munioipal patriotism;  the town hall has always in Belgium  claimed' more loyalty than ths palace.  Other features result irom common social and economic conditions. Their  working class, Ib, perhaps, the best  housed in Europe���partly owing to a  very good housing law, but mainly to  unique facilities ior cheap traveling.  It is due to the latter that a large  proportion even of-the town workers  live in the country, and in spite of a  density of population far greater than  England's barely 2 per cent, ol the  nation live in the great cities.  In spits of the unsatisfactory financial conditions consequent upon the  war, the Penticton council have cloasd  an option with Wood, Grundy at Co.,  of Toronto, for all the debentures voted recently at a price to net the investor 65 per cent.

Covering Troops.  ||   A screen of troops of. all arms    is  pushed out in front of each army to  feel Ior and get in touch with the enemy, and to prevent him from getting  in and obtaining information. Ths  outermost fringe of this screen is  composed of cavalry split up into  Military Dictionary, Galley 2 ������ ������  small parties' ol patrols, whioh work  thoir way, if possible, into the heart  of the enemy's oountry, gathering and  sending baok information, preventing  the deatruotlon of roads and railways  which their own army will want to  ubo, stopping the removal or secretion  of supplies, and a thousand and ons  other things. In 1870 the German  cavalry soreen was often 50 miles  ahead of the main armies. The soreen  increases in strength from front to the  rear, the advanced horsemen being  baoked up by artillery and Infantry so  that in the event of a check or of an  attempt by the enemy to penetrate  the screen, a foroe can be immediately  concentrated lor offensive or defensive  purposes.  Reoonnaissanes  A complete force of all arms, whloh  may be anything from a brigade to an  army corps, is sometimes sent on a  special' mission to penetrate into the  enemy's oountry for the purposs of  obtaining special information. Such a  foroe would) when In touch with the  enemy, attaok him vigorously and  compel him to expose his strength.  Notable examples of reoonnaissanos in  foroe have been the Frenoh dash to  Muelhausen and to Saarburg, and the  operations of the Germans against ths  Belgians to the north of the Mouse.  \    ' *    tBtiW^%tWnXmtZmVt,lM   mm^smmmemmimmmmmmmmm^  Message from  The British Humanity Lo.i^uo in  London has received a itriking message from the Humanity 1 .'ague in  Berlin, dated August 11th, reading aa  follows:��� Dear Cqnrades.

"The wheat," says the Premier,  stands unrsapsd, and the time of vintage approaches. I" appeal to your  hardihood and to that of your children whoa* age alone, not their courage, withholds them from the fighting  line. I ask you to maintain the life  of your fields, to finish this year's  harvest, and to prepare for that of the  (or that oi the next year. Too cannot reader a greater service to your  country.-'  Tht part whloh woman have played  in times of war Is many-sided. As  ���as, aa spies, even at common soldiers, they have home their share of  the burden, and none more encourago-  ously than-ths European, peasant woman, who has safeguarded the welfare of the nation by their work in  tbe fields.  To ons familiar with the peasant  Ufa of France, (ha Premier's appeal  cells up a vivid picture of grain ready  tor the harvest, of peasant women in  vari-colored oostumaa . working from  morning till night to ssoure lor Franoe  tha wsalth whloh the fields will yield.  It is work whioh is aot described at  length in war bulletins, and whieh is  yet. oi suoh importance that it affects  the verv roots ol the nation's life, For  on the work of these women largely  depends tha support ol ths army during tha war, and even after it is over.  The poverty whioh is sura to follow  in the wake of war is somewhat lessened by tba harvesting ol the crops,  which ths women's work has made  possible.  _ The Bulgarian women did their share  in the Balkan war. A person who  speaks with the authority of an eyewitness says:  "Ons "erson in every ten was under arms in Bulgaria. Men from sixteen to sixty were enlisted. You can  imaarine what that meant when you  stop to think that Bulgaria is largely an agricultural and pastoral country, and that with such* a percentage  of He man away the principal means  of support waa left to the care of the  women. They did their part nobly,  with the result that Bulgaria recorded  a larger orop that year than for many  years previous. Vegetables were  were grown in large quantities���beans,  potatoes, and onion*��� besides large  orope of rice and tobacco.  "All crops were gathered with the  minimum amount of waste. And the  women did not stop there. With the  help ol the. older men who were, left,  thsy saw that the export trade did  not suffer, and more wheat was ex-  portedthat year than for any year before or sines ths war.  "Thsse peasant women are able to  do suoh work because they have been  aooustomsd to it for generations.  Thev havs worked in the fields side by  side with th* men and havs dont) Just  aa hard work aa they. In Bulgaria  you seldom sse a woman, of the peasant class wearing shoes. Shs goes  barefoot. The men' almost always  have shoes mad* ot the tanned hide  of animals, something after th* style  of the moocaslns worn by the American Indian*. Even the small boys of  live and six have'their shoes, while  ths small -irl toss barefoot as doss  her mother. They are a sturdy raoe  of people, and the women are apparently as strong aa tha man."  During the Franco-Prussian war both  ths French and German wteasa. did  their share in harvesting the i orops.  Tho histories msntlon it in a few vrry  brief Unas, although without this work  on the part ol the wo'uen the frightful famine aud poverty which followed  In tba wake of the war would havo  been many times worse than history  matures it.  It is another aid* of the situation  with whioh the histories choose to  deal. Thev tall at great length of th*  attempt mads by Felix Belly to or-  ���niss a battalion of women. It was  durino the siege of Paris that Bally,  recently returned from a visit tb Paraguay, where he wa*- impressed by th*  military prowess oi ths women, suggested that tan battalions of "Ama-  sons" oompoaed of eight companies  each ahould be enlisted and trained  for servioe.  'Three thousand women" he declared, "hav* asked to be enrolled" and  adds. "Ths military uniform plsasss  thsm and thev also havs a real instinct for war.

Thsy wore.a uniform consisting of a short skirt���striped blue,  white and red''sebote on their feet,  and the red Phrygian-can, afterwards  oalled the Liberty cap, trimmed with  a red, white and blue cockade. Each  carried a- baldric slung over her shoulder, supporting a cutlass.  Armed battalions of girls and women formed in ths provinces, especially in the Dauphins, and wer* sworn in  to defend their oountry aad the tri-  nartite principle of liberty, equality,  fraternity.  So it is that women have borne their  oart when war was inevitable,.both in  the harvest fields and in the -field of  battle.. Today thsy show capacities,  though there have been no reports as  yet ol their offering to enlist Ss soldiers.  A Paris despatch to tha Kansas CHy  Star shows how the women In the  capital responded to the first war's  demands on thsm,   Ths despatch says:  "The women ol Paris, rose today to  the emergency created by drafting tbe  men of the oity for tbe army. Sooiety  women took the --'aot of man clerks  in the stores to sell necessities. Young  ���rirls sold tiokets in the underground  stations. Others acted ar waiter1, in  cafes. Grocery stores and meattnajrket  nlaoss were run bv women. The small  boys ware put on as guards on ''ths  underground trains. The . motormen  are aged, grey-haired men, ineligible  for servioe in the army. Paris enjoys  the novelty of women doing men's  work, and tb* women apparently do  too,       ��� "  "Tbe war has levelled all classes.  French society women havs taken into  their homes the destitute wives and  children of private soldiers ordered to  ths front."  Tan* hundred volunteers presented  themselves as oandidate* for hi*, proposed battalion, and he had a placard  orlntsd ovsr which was the inscription  in large Utters:  Premier*, Bataillon de A masons de  la Bain*,:' ssttlne lorth ths reasons  why Franoe needed the help of her  women to th* field, aad urging that  volunteers ooms to enlist.

Earlier, in the days of the Revolution, the French women took an active part- Ths famous march of > the  of Versailles was led by a  voting girl.

Not only are they under enormous additional expense for oable and tele-  graphic reports, for largely increased  staffs to handle the mass of news  received, and for various othsr items  that the publio knows nothing about  but they an face to face with the  problem of securing paper. The prioe  of this haa ot course, gone np, so  great has bean the demand all over  the world, but even when publishers  ars ready and willing to pay ths  pries, they, find It hard to get a supply.  In England the paper famine is ; being felt verv keenly- Even the London  Times haa been obliged to reduce) its  site, aad instead of Issuing twoaty-  four to twenty-eight pages, aa usual,  it has been ent down to as low aa  four pages sometimes.  In Canada, with our vast resources  of pulp wood, ws ars not yet aa badly off as in England, but these resources an bring strained to their  utmost, and it may not be long bailors tht pinch is fait here as keenly os  elsewhere.

These "alkali lands"  are more particularly situated in parts  western Alberta, but patches are found  also in Saskatchewan-and in Manitoba. With the inorease in land values  in the grain growing prairie regions  and in the fruit-raising valleys ol  British Columbia, the problem of the  reclamation ol those lands assumes a  more pressing and practical aspect.  That thev can be reclaimed is, in most  oases, tolerably oertain, but reclamation is improbable where the expense  involved would euceed the value ol ordinary good Und.  Besides ths alkali lands whioh naturally oocur, others are liable to be  formed through the injudicious use ol  water in irrigated districts, snd it is  very important to take precautions in  order that these otherwise Ligfcly  tortile lands may not be ruined.  The so-called "alkali" consists oi  various salts, chiefly the sulphates  and chlorides of sodium and magnesium, forming what ia commonly  known as "white alkali," and carbonate ol sodium, whioh lorms "black alkali" and is much more injurious to  plant life.  Soils containing these salts are frequently met with everywhere but do  not tend to accumulate near the surface,' exoept -in dry regions, where, alter being dissolved in the soil witor  and brought up by capillary attraction, they -remain nfter the evaporation of the water. The salts, except  the carbonate, are Injurious only when  present in excessive quantities in hu-  mid regions, where drainage, rather  than evaporation, is the principal factor in removing Surplus soil water,  no dangerous accumulation ol- these  salts takes place. Moreover, there is  more water in the soil, and consequent  ly, even though there be an equal  quantity, of salts, tho strength of the  solution is weaker and plant life  not injuriously affected.  Untlerdrainage and Cultivation  In dry areas, even where irrigation  is practised, it is impracticable to  keen the.noil any moister than iB rein-red lor the suooessful growth ol  vegetable life. But, by a good system  of tile; uriderdrainage, it ia possible to  cause the; wator to carry the excess  of salts jjnto the deeper layers of t the  soil, and-thus overcome the dangerous  accumulation near the surface, where  seeds must germinate. This ia especially important in somo irrigated districts where alkali is making its appearance on lands that were formerly  free from it. *n the Yellowstone valley eg., near Billings, Mont., the lowest irrigated land is being ruined in  this way, due to. seepage probably  Irom injudiciously irrigated lands high  er up. An efficient system ol imder-  drainage to carry off the surplus water is urgently needed.  In dry farming districts, much can  be done to reclaim alkali lands by  extra deep ploughing, and by thorough cultivation to form a mulch on  the surface and reduce evaporation.  The application ol manure is also.very  beneficial, .because it gives the young  plants a ready supply ' of available  food material, improves the texture ol  the soil, and acts as a mulch to check  loss of water through drying.  tMtfimn  Drought Tests Forest  Fire Protection Plaos  Spaaaal sataiatioii to callahan   .
