Sutherland,  buns. , *  Since tho beginning of the year the  expense account has been very high  on account of tho amount of fuel that  has been required. During the cold  weather the two heating systems were  run to the limit. During the month  of February there were in all fifteen  patients treated, five i�� the maternity  wing and ten in the general. Owing  to the fact that some of those who  were treated in the general were only  in the hospital for a few days,, the expenses for the month are larger than  the amount which would be received ft  all the patients pay in full, so there  was a loan of about $50.00 without  taiding into consideration the percent  age of depreciation thU should be  charged against the month's business.  There are some improvements that  are absolutely necessary and the Board  trust that the public generally will  give such consideration as they can.  If this is done the Board will be able  to continue, as they have in the past,  to hold the standard of efficiency that  hnB always been maintained.

German reinforcements continue to  arrive near Verdun. It is reported  that tho S.wiss frontier has been closed  to insure 'secrecy of troop movements.  French aviators observed great bodice  of German reinforcements marching-  Swiss reports said that Von Maeken-  seu is in command of the Verdun attack, and tlie Kaiser has, summoned  Von Ilindenburg to assist. It is believed that the Germans will drive  simultaneously* at Goose Hill und  Dead Man's Hill, striking also at  Forts Devaux and Det avenues, The  Paris correspondent of lhe * Daily Mail  declared that the lull in the infantry  fighting was duo partly to the redistribution of the German forces, and  partly to the need of artillery preparation. It is said that the seventeenth  und twenty-second divisions, which  bore the brunt of the f ghtin/ at Beth/  incourt and Goose Hill, were so severely handled ithat i) c d rest and  possibly will be entirely replaced     by  new men.  It is expected that the grand assault  on Verdun has not begun, Berlin is  silent regarding the operations around  Verdun. The Germans claimed to have  repulsed the British in the Ypres dis-.  triot. Several air battles are roport-  ed. Merlin claimed that three British  and two French aeroplanes were disabled and brought  down.

RIOTING  IN GERMAN CITIES  Reports continue to be published in  London of the rioting in German cities  consequent upon the failure of the  Crown Prince's army before Verdun.  The Daily Express prints a despatch  from Amsterdam to the effect thu  riots of the most serious character^  have been taking place almost daily in  Cologne since the beginning of the  Verdun offensive, and that police and  troops have been called upon to keep  order. The reason for the trouble is  said to be popular indignation caused  by the contiuuul passage of wounded  in trains from France. This is telling  on the nerves of the Cologne people.  For a fortnight past the trains havo  been running constantly in such numbers that it ha�� been impossible -to  confine their passage to the nights.  PEACE TERMS IF VERDUN FALLS  It is^ authoritatively stated that  President Wilson has been informed of  the peace terms that Berlin is likely  to make if Verdun falls, Col. House  is said to have presented tentative  terms, modified bv tho recent month's  warfare. High Gorman officials have  testified as to tho correctness of his  outline.     The demands follow;  Return of all German colonies. No  indemnitees. Montenegro, Serbia and  Albania to be divided between Austria, Bulgaria and Greece. Autonomy  for Poland Freedom of Turkey from  British influence. Germany to return.  Belgium and \orthem France. Russia  to -assume possession of Persia. Great  Britain to remain as at present, giv  ing and receiving nothing. High authorities said that neither side is in  a position to (1 -man 1 indemnities. It  is reported that there is no longer any  thought in Germany of the Kaiser retaining Belgium.   . o ���,  Manitoba Goes Dry By Two  Votes to One  mediate pressure on the worried city  council. This was in the form of a  loan negotiated with the superintendent of the Bank of Montreal at Vancouver, which will enable the city to  pay off all outstanding arrears of salaries both of the city stuff and the  school teachers, and also to furnish  funds for urgent financial needs during  the year. Tho mayor was also abte  to secure measures of relief from the  Educational department for some of  the rural schools who Have found themselves short of funds.  The question of irrigation was also  taken up with the Premier and, members of the government by thc mayor  und a deputation from Kelowna, with  a reassuring result. The government  promised that p<nlin.�� definite legislation based upon tho report of Mr. Me-  Ken-de who has been investigating irrigation conditions, that thev woiki  stand behind anv system not able to  take cave of accidental breakdowns bo  that the water users would not be  imperilled during the present season.  Tho whole question would later be  taken up und embodied in a bill calculated to put the irrigation nreds of  the valley on a firmer basis.  The qUesition of the building of the  C.X. It. was also made the subject of  enquiry and the information was obtained that thero seemed to lie little  doubt that the company now had their  finances sufficiently in hand to make  start with the con traction during  the coming spr'nj. VI. ney was also  soon to l>e available for the purposes  of the Agricultural Credits Act, and  ���the mayor was assumed that this district would receive its full share of tho  $,000,000 which ..vo'ild ho the probable  amount of the first appropriation.  ar pipe, and to the latter *a  case of military brushes.  Mr. Chapman made the presentation  on behalf of the men, and spoke of the  good feeling and pleasant relations  which existed! throughout between  themselves and Messrs. De Shane, of  whom they entertained tho highest  opinion. It was the existence of th  good feeling which had prompted thu  tittle tokens he was presenting.  Both recipients expressed their very  sincere pleasure in tlie gifts and  pecially in the sentiments they  pressed. Mr. Dan De Shane said he  hoped that when the work opened  again next fall he hoped he would be  able to have the same st i'T again.  He could assure them that every man  of them Could bp sure of a job again  if they wanted it. He attributed most  of the success which had attended the  operation of the, plant to the men  he had had under him.  While the main drying plant is being  left untouched, workmen are busy this  week making a few n-cessury alterations to place the building once more  in shape for the season's operations 0f  the cannon-.  Mission Services at St.  Michael's Church  Red Cross "At Home"  The Manitoba Tehiperunco Act which  closes all hotels and bars, and all  wholesale liquor stores tin the province  from June 1st next was carried by tho  poople of Manitoba Mofiday by a vpte  of more .than two to one. Liquor may  still be imported by private persons  from outside provinces, and the manufacture of liquor in the province for  export is still permitted. These, are the  constitutional limitations placed on the  province in legislation along this line  by the federal authorities, but to remove those limitations a mass mooting  of citizens last week, amid groat enthusiasm, endorsed a resolution culling  on Sir Kolwrt Borden and his government ftt Ottawa to introduce a Dominion-wide prohibition act.  lb-   BLENKARN.-On  Wednesday.     March -  and Mrs.   K. Blenknrn  15th to Mr.  a son.  The girls' Red Cross "At Homo"  held last Monday evening in Morrison's  Hall, though not a "farewell" to the  soldiers after all, turned out to be the  most successful on i held yet. tTwo  hundred people were present. The door  receipts wero 860.25. Expenses 820.25,  and the balance, $10.00 wus handed  over to the Red Cross. ThiB was all  the more creditable as the soldiers had  free admission. The suggestion indeed has been made that at all social  affairs during war time, that the soldiers should have free admission. The  girls wish to thank all those who so  kindly helped with the arrangements,,  and those who provided the music, Mr.  Tod Boyd, Mrs F. Mnwhinney, Miss A.  Fisher, Mr. C. Quinn, Mr. Hopkins ,>nd  Mr. Westerby. Although this w'H in  the last "At Homo" held this sfnHcn,  thero will lie various affairs organized  during tho summer by the Red Cross  girls and other members. Accr-rding  to report to hand just lately the  Red Cross will have to vvoc.t harder  th^an ever during tho next few u.owhs  ns the demand for supplies will bo very  heavy and this means funds will have  to be found to carry on the extri  work. The girls fool sure the peoplo  of Kelowna wilt not fail in their loyal  support after the way th��>y have eo  ably helped during the past winter  and year.    .  The Right Hev. A. J. Doull, D.D.,  Bishop of Kooteriay, commenced- last  Saturday afternoon a series of Mission services in Kelowna. The mission is Part of a movement extending  throughout tho'entire Anglican church  in Canada, in accordance with a plan  adopted by the heads of the church  a few months ago. A special appeal  was issued to engage in a special effort in every church centre.throughout  the whole Dominion, and accordingly  arrangements were made for the holding of missions in every parish. The  Bishop of Kootenay has with characteristic energy applied himself personally to the work throughout this dio-  cesp, and is. making a tour of the  churches. Previous to ' siting Kelowna he was at Penticton and Nelson.  Considerable interest has been shown  tho various services, particularly  on Sunday evening when the church  was crowded to the doors, a large proportion being visitors from other  churches in the district.  CAMPBELL-WATSON  A quiet wedfhng of interest to Kelowna people was solemnized at Vernon last Saturday evening when Miss  Eva Watson, .of Kelowna, formerly of  London, England was married to Mr.  ��� lames Campbell, of this city. Thc  ceremony was attended by only a few  personal friends and relatives of tho  contracting parties who went up to  Vernon by motor on Saturday. After  spending several days motoring about  tho northern end of the valley,(the  happy couple returned to Kelowna on  Benvoulin Notes  (From our own CorrMDonrfcnt.l  The completion of the Manse is proceeding apace. Busy workers have been  engaged for the past two weeks and  it is hoped the financial conditions will  enable them to continue until 'the  whole of the work is done. All the  work done has been voluntary and  much credit is due to Messrs. Reeves,  Reid, McEachoarn, Khumor, Grummett  and others for the valuable services  thoy have rendered. In order to  strengthen the finances a social gath  ering will bo hold in th,�� church on tho  21st (Tuesday) and local talent will  furnish an interesting program. As the  proceeds will all be dov0tcd to tho  Manse building fund it is hoped thoro  win" be fi largo gathering. Subscriptions towards this fund will also be  gratefully received by tho managers  or by the minister.  A sudden and unexpected develop-"  mont aro��e in the House at Victoria  Tuesday ufternoon when the Premier  announced that a legal doubt had  arisen as to the exact date on which  tho legislature became automatically  dissolved by the expiration of the term  specified in the constitution. He offered an amendment to the Act which  would remove any doubt and aMow  the government to remain in power  until June 1st, thus enabling thy business of the session to be completed.  As might have been expected the  situation was gleefully seized upon by  the opposition who saw in it a glorious opportunity to squeeze the party  in power. Premier Bowser o'Tored to  withdraw all contentious legislation  for th'- present" session, such as the  P. G. R. aid bill, Workmen's Compensation, and other measures such as  the Liberals might name if they would  allow the regular business of the session to proceed.  The excitement of debate grow more  and more intense as the day passed,  and every device was' used by the opposition to obstruct the passing .of the  needed amending bill, With one amend  meut after another they held the  House until after midnight, when the  bill was finally passed making it certain that the government could exist  until dune 1st and yesterday afternoon the measure received th' formal  assent of the C/ieuten an ^Governor,  Much of the discussion centred  around the Prohibition question which  was of course greatly endangered by  the situation, and th j Liberals were  freely accused of secret alliances with  the liquor interests in endeavoring to  force dissolution at onc$ and ppstpo0e  vote on the questii n indefinitely, besides tying up the business of the  ctmntry: and prevent in* fstimat-s being passed for necessary work.  It is probable th�� House will be prorogued and parliament dissolved about  thc middle of April, with an election  towards the end of dune or first of  duly.  Premier Bowser proposes to bring in  a bill to give tlie vote to all British  Columbia soldiers :n the British possessions. Thus: n 'h ��� old Country  will vote on the election here, but not  those'at the front, it being difficult to  obtain necessary power to t%ke the  vote of men onSforeiun goil.  The Premier declares that despite the  opposition of the Liberal members he  proposes to carry thro:i h his prohibition campaign s*, thu ih;. people may  vote on it nt tho time of the general  elections. The Premier will endeavor  to eliminate compensation from the  issue it is said, although .some of the  Conservative members in caucus are  willing bo have this added either in  the bill or on the referendum*  -O-  Golden was one of two points in the  whom Kamloops presbytery to vote  against church union.

In Common with municipalities, public bodies and private business con-  corns throughout the province many  sweeping economics are just now being  put into effect by tho government and  many branches, of work nre being  greatly curtailed or abolished alto-  get her. Amongst the latter is the  Botanical office, which has been under  the able superintendence of Mr. A. Davidson. During the few years this department has been in progress a groat  deal of useful work has been accomplish^, most of it of a foundational  character, nnd it seems almost a pit.v  that now t hat some benefit ia  about to be reaped in the way  of a complete botanical survey ol the  province, it should bo found necessary  to drop the work altogether, Th- organization of a corps of voluntary correspondents in different parts ol the  country which has been the result of  patientwork over a long period will  thus be rendered oi no avail. The collections made are to be stored i0v  the present in the university.  Several of the educational institutions and public bodies at tho 'Vast  have forwarded resolutions urging the  continuance of the department, which  has a high educational value, i.s well  as a practical and commercial significance,  Venice in Time of War  Venice has put aside her finery and  jewelled splAdor and has covered up  her art treasures against the bombardment of hostile aircraft which  has already attacked the city.  Venice today is not the Venice of  streams and poetry, of1* magic and  moonlight and black, silent gondolas.  She is a city under naval jurisdiction,  a strongly fortified naval base, which  foreigners are n t allowed to visit.  A correspondent who obtained per-  * mission to visit the city, went to the  l'lazza San Marco. He came upon a  crowded" square, but the people were  joyless, The dazzling gold of former  days was gone, for no on 3 kn>ws at  what moment an enemy will appear  in the sky, as the city is only.' one  hour distant from the enemy's air  base.  To guard her treasures against at--  tack, Venice, has seen to it that layers  of sandbags 3D foot high protect the  Sansovina bronzes; that tho Logetta  of tho Campanile looks like q dugouty  that sandbags guard the northern portal of St. Mark; that tho mosaics are  covered over and the delicate marble  arches support ed by brick columns  three f-ret thick to prevent collapse in  cuse the building is struck nnd that  the four gilded bronze horses have  been led from thoir pedestals to a  stable in the main entrance archway  of tho Doges Palace, walled in between thick brick walls. The Venetians say the horses have gone to  fight Austria.  In tho Duomo sandbags are everywhere, tier after tier. Statues are  swathed in thick cloth and the capitals of columns are encased in metal  receptacles. The palaeo of the Doges  looks like a fortress with a heavy pile  of thick masonry between each arch  and a briek tower at tho" corner. The  loggia is supported by wooden reinforcements. Other places are protected, by sandbags, while the work of entrenching still goes on.  During dinner in the only hotel now  open the waiters bring in candles and  the electric lights are turned out at  8.15 o'clock in fhe evening. One man  was fined $30 far lighting a cigarette  in. the Piazza-at night and all   along  Plunder and .Conquest Was  Germany's Object  The appeals for peace from neutral  countries, obviously inspired by German-Americans, German-Swiss or other hyphenated patriots, is an unmis-  takablo sign that Germany feels her  force is on tho decline. That being so  it follows naturally that the Booner  she makes peace the better leverage  for bargaining she will have. On the  other hand, the entente powers uiv just  as anxious for peace as Germany, but  it must be peace on their terms. If  the enemy is not ready to accept thi'^e  terms, the war will continue until she  is ready.  Tho subject of peace terms is therefore, of interest just now. It may be  well t0 glance first at tho terms Germany anticipated in case of defeat,  when she was in the midst of her de  liboratc preparations for this war.  They were published about seven years  ago in a French mngazino, in the form  of a signed interview with ft prominent German official, whose name was  withheld for obvious reasons. The  German stated that his countrymen  had calculated the cost of defeat on  the following basis:  The surrender of Metz and Lorraine  to France.  The neutralization of Alsace.  The return of Schlfiswig-Holstotn to  Denmark.  An indemnity of $100,000,000 to  France.  The cession of the Kameruns. and  Togo.nnd to France.  The cessation of German east and  southwest  Africa to England.  The return of Heligoland to England".  The transfer of six German iron  clads and twelve German cruisers to  England.  An indemnity of fcGOfl.OOO to Hus-  si a.  Boundary rectifications in favor of  Russia*  It may now be interesting to glance  at the torms of peace in the event of  a German victory. They were published shortly after th..1 outbreak of the'  war, and it was stated later that, owing to the "serious inconveniences" to  which the allies had put poor inoffensive Germany, they would probably be  made much more exacting when thc  time came to formulate them offidally,  The reader will notice the difference between the two sots of terms. Tho following represents the demands of a  victorious Germany:  The cession of all France's overseas  empire, amounting to -1,307,826 square  miles, with a population of approximately 65,000,000.  The cession o* north eastern France,  which includes some of the richest iron  districts in central Europe, and has  numerous blast furnaces and iron  works.  The demolition of all French forts  on that frontier.  The reduction of the French army  to 200,000 (fr0m thret million).  The signing of a treaty of Commerce on tenns.to be dictated by Germany.  Tho payment.of an indemnity of *4.-  000,000,000, Germany to practically  occupy 11 ho country until two-thirds  had been paid in gold.  France to abandon Britain and Hus-  sia and sign an alliance with Germany  for a period of 25 years.  Those are only the terms to be demanded . from France according to  Professor Hasokal. England was to  be occupied by German troops and the  British overseas dominions were to be  taken over. Belgium was to be ab-  sarbed, together with her Congo territory in Africa. Poland was to be reestablished as a part of Austria. Tho  Russian Baltic provinces were to be  given up to Germany.  The German idea ofvwar in not self-  defence but plunder, and this was  strikingly illustrated when BiBmarck  visited London about half a century  ago. He remained silent practically  all the time ho was being taken about  the priceless treasures of the museum  or the royal palaces or art galleries  The historical associations of the venerable Tower of London left him unmoved. The exKjuisito bale that creeps  ���about the river during the long English twilight had no interest for him.  But when ho had seen everything, he  roused himself from a fit of abstraction and murmured ecstatically "Wass  fur plunder!" ("What n place to plunder.")  It ;s rumored in'legislative circles  at Victoria that when the office of  Ministor of Agriculture is created the  portfolio will1 be offered to Mr. %, A.  Shatford, M.L.A., for tho Similkameon  riding. Mr. Shatford haa already  been appointed chairman of the ways  and means committee.

IWHENBUYINGYEASTl  | INSIST ON HAVING I  THIS PACKAGE  III  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES  Striking a Balance  The right to use tho sea Germany  can only regain in two ways ��� by  compelling Great Britain to relinquish  command of the seas or by complying  with the terms fixed by Great Britain  as the price of the use of the seas.  One would be the consequence of victory, the other of defeat. But up to  the present moment Germany haa not  been ahle in the smallest way to exert  any force upon Great Britain to compel her to give Up the mastery of the  seas. Every effort mado by the Ger-  mand has ended in decisive defeat.  If you set against the German occupation of 8,-100 square miles af  French territory the British control  of the sea, you have measured the  exact conditions between the contending powers of the west. It is plain  that no hardship of France is comparable with that of Germany, because France, thanks to British sea  power, is able to get coal and iron  from abroad. Sho has now been able  to reorganize her industrial establishments in such fashion that what used  to be made at LuMq and at Houbais,  at St. Quentin and Tourcoing���that ia,  tho things essential to national life  and comfort���are made elsewhere.  In addition France has lost many  men and a few districts have been ravaged, either by reason of the actual  conflict or because of German Wantonness. This represents a capital loss,  but it does not represent a capital  loss greatly in excesB of that suffered  by Germany in her colonies and in the  paralysis or destruction of her merchant marine. As for French casualties, they are certainly not in excess  of German proportionately, and British are Ho fur inconsiderable, compared with German.  Xow if peace were to be considered,  it is plain that Germany would have  to evacuate France ami Belgium aa  well. In no other way could Ao persuade the British to permit her ships  to sail the seas, and she has no present means of compelling such, British  consent. But this would bo to restore  things to their exact status before the  war. It would mean that for her tremendous sacrifiees Germany hud gain  ed nothing from- France or from Great  Britain, but had lost all her colonics.

On a  trial of tho machino, which, it is understood has bem accepted by tho  war ollice, it was found that a shaft  of flame Could be projected for seventy  feet. The heat of this flamo is so  intense that it literally bums up barb  ed-wire entanglements. At the Bame  time a dense deadly gas is omitted.  Tho machine can be kept in operation  for half an hour if necessary. The apparatus can be carried on a man's  back. Under Sergt, Luwrenoe's supervision, a large number of these machines are being manufactured for  early use.

Dated this   Mnd 3av    of February,  1916. 6  CORKY *% LOCKE,  Mioitors for Administrator  . 17-9.' ..Coronation, Alberta  Amongst tho many evils of the present war, some little good seems likely  to result, and perhaps not the least  important' of these benefits is *that  of closer attention to the economies of  foods. The pinch of hftid times is  forcing individuals an a small soale  and nations on a large scale to  consider more carefully the relative  values of different food products with  a view to purchasing the most actual  bodily nourishment for the least money. And it is really astounding what  even a superficial study of the subject will reveal. There is really a  tremendous difference between tlie ftp-  parent and the real food* value of  different articles. Thus Borne of the  expensive high-priced dainties, in common use, and in which in some cases  the bulk of the weekly income is spent,  are practically worthiest*, when measured by the soale of actual food value. On the other hand some oi the  simpler foods now being neglected for  mere palate tickling dainties, have a  high percentage of nourishing quail*  ties.  The intelligent provider too, who  takes note of things can save money  and still feed the family us well if  not better, by keeping a watchful eye  upon the murket prices. For instance  eggs, probably one of the most valuable food products which man possefles  are now down to a very low price.  Buy more1 eggs, just now, and you aW  getting full value for every cent you  spend.  It is hardly necessary to write oi tho  food value of eggs for we all realize  it and only limit our use of them when  prices soar beyond our moans. They  contain in a concentrated form all the  elements, in the right proportion, for  the support of the body and the ease  with which they can be made into nn  attractive and nourishing meal makes  them a comfort to all housekeepers  Without them, indeed, one is at u -oss^i  Wherever it is possible fresh eggs  should be used for all purposes. It is  as important to have them fresh for  cooking as for use alone. They. should  be carefully kept in a cool place, quite  apart from anything of strong flavor  or small. If storage epgs must be  used, then it is best to break the shell  and turn the eggs out on a plate or  into a bowl at least an hour before  using them. This will tend to materially lessen the strong or musty flavor  that is so disugreeable.  Having secured a supply of good  eggs, the housepeeper will feel that  she can face any emergency and speedily arrange a meal for even unexpected guests. The cakes, custards, puddings and savory dishes which can be  quickly made with the help of the  contents of the egg basket are innumerable.  In arranging a meal in which the  main dish is to be made of egg8, there  should always be provided -with it  some such-food as rice, bread or potatoes, both because of the starch contained in them and because a certain  amount of bulk is needed for the stomach to act upon.  Eggfl should be Cooked slowly, j.evrr  with a hot fire. Tlie albumen whioh the  white of an egg contains in the purest  form, becomes tough and difficult of  digestion when the eggs are cooked in  boiling water. To. properly cook an  egg in the shell, have the water boiling, put in the eggs, cover and set the  pan back on the range wttjre ihe v/atet  will not boil. Leave the eg��S in the  water for six or eight minures lor \\  'soft boiled' egg and forty to forty-  five minutes if you like it ^hard-boiled'  Hard boiled eggs which ii-'e to be used  for making dishes should, vrv.n token  from tho hot water, be p'uii'.red into  Cold water to prevent dtioolarutton ol  tho yolk. The Trench cooks ��h, exert  in making omelettes and other da'nty  egg dishes, claim that to have them  tender the eggs must not be beaten  long. Many think (he best results  are got when the eggs are out through  and through and slightly beaten with  a sharp bladed knife.  In scrambling eggs or making at  omelette, cream stock or water is better than milk, as the casein of the  milk is apt to toughen the albumen of  the egg. Tn making nn omelette a  tablespoonful of liquid should, bo used  for oach egg.  Tn order to assist the housewife to  use eggs to the best advantage an'  to make of them attractive and appetising dishes, we propose to give each  week a "few wolMried and reliable re-  oipes for using eggs. Cut them out  and paste   them in your cook book.

Swedish Minister on Peace  Baron Adelsward, ex-minister of finance of Sweden, now a member of  the Swedish rigsdag and ono of the  outstanding figures of the movement  Europe who seek to puve the  way for permanent peace, recently  toured the countries at war, conferring with such men a tr inur loin-  care in France.  "I regret to say that the outlook  appear^ darker during recent months  thun at any time since the war began," said Baron Adelsward. "I do  not believe there is the slightest,  chance of peace at the present time  or in the neur future.  "In England," he continued, "1  found among officiate und the people  at large that they ,ook upon the war  as just beginning. They recognize  now that they were not ready for war  at the outset and lacked men and  munitions. But now it has taken -urn  hold of the whole people that the war  is a tremendously serious question,  and they feel they are only now beginning an effort adequate to the  huge task before th.m, so that ii is  useless to talk peace to them when  they are firmly convinced they ere  just beginning the war.  "In France there is indignation at  the mere mention of peace, and the  whole country is united in the policy  of currying on the war with tho utmost energy.  'But in Germany there is undoubtedly a very strong public sentiment  for ending the war. I have made four  trips through German.1 since the war  began, and have observed the gradual  growth of feeling that the war should  end. This was most marked during  my last visit, and extended to all  classes, men and women exclaiming:  'My (iod! Who would have thought  this terrible war Would last so long?'  The statement of the German chancellor appears to be designed to  aim the public fee'in n Genn.ny in  showing that the government is ready  for peace, but c. nn t rathe it owing  to the opposition of the Allies.  "There is, too, a significant and  rather ominous attitude among the  German people of being ready to criticize men in high places��� even the  highest. Such a thing would not have  been thought of a short time ag��. but  now it is general.  "For instance, men who direct large  forces of employees were recently discussing the serious conditions arising  from the war. 'The responsible ones  will be punished,' said one. 'Bdt the���  is responsible, and will he, too, be  punished?' Yes, I ��� mean him, too, ho  is the one,' was the reply.  "And this is very typical of tho way  the ordinary people are talking,' a��d  it is a condition which might have the  gravest consequences. And yet," Baron  Adelsward added, "it is a mistake to  think that Germany is exhausted and  will bo forced to peace through sheer  exhaustion. She has many resources  stiH, and can fight for a lon^ time."  Baron Adelsward ��� visited Aldershot,  the great military rendezvous of England, also the grand fleet in one of  the porta of Scotland, and later conferred with Premier As}:piith and other  British leaders.  "The British fleet in reality has  three points of con oent ration," said  he, "and we visited the main point,  where most of the great battleships  are gathered. It is n most impressive  sight, not only of strength, but of  alert readiness."   O   Kaslo women have sent one ton of  jam to tho Red Cross headquarters at  Toronto, valued at 8400.

FR1TISH COLUMBIA'S FORESTS  About n billion and a quarter feet  are logged every year'in British Columbia, aooording to government figures, while the minimi growth is estimated to bo about six billion feet.  A considerable amount iB killed every  year by fires, but not so much actual-'  ly burned, as the fires generally leave  much standing that can be logged  and put to good use. Cruisers have  estimated that in Inst season's fires  23,000,000 feet of-timber was "killed"  but of this, 20,000,000 oan be saved,  so -that the loss is not so serious as  it appears.  Tt is estimated that four hundred  billion feet of timber still stand to  grace the hills of British Columbia,  and lo fill th" needs of future generations. The best districts aro probably those on Vancouver Island  where beautiful areas of gifanDio  trees stand pruot .cully untouched.  Bagpipes in Battle  "Aa the men bombed their0, way  along thc German trenches after the  first rush, two of the B&ack Watoh  pipers stood upright on the parapet  under a terrific fire and played 'Hie-  land Laddie.' the regimental charge  of this gallant corps. Thev stood in (l  terrific storm of Hre with bombs burst  ing all round them, and flung their  Highland battle air" to ihe breeze, Until one piper fell dead and the o+her  was wounded."  ThiB wus what happened during the  British attack on tho Herman lines to  the north of LaBasse Home wee!ta ago  and tt is one of tin1 many such epics  that have been recorded for at least  two centuries.  It is almost n tradition of out Highland regiments that-, the pipers have  largely contributed ��� to every victory  gained by their countrymen, not only  by the animating strains of their  music, but by thc coolness and solf-  Possesaioir of tho pipers in the hour  of danger.  When the l'_"iul Highlanders, who  formed part of the attacking party  ���that captured Fort Washington, in  1777, scrambled up the precip ce determined t<i have thoir own share of  glory, the first lo reach the summit  was one of th�� pipers, who." as soon  as ho h*id made good his footing, bo-  ���began to play. He oont'liued sounding  his war notes until at last his body  riddled with bullets, fell from point to  point, till it reachnf the bottom of  the rock mangled und disfigured.  Again, ut Waterloo, where the pB*m  erons earned imperishable fame, it was  Piper Kenneth Mncknv who specially  distinguished himself. In lhe thick al  tlie fighting that raged round ihe  farmhouse of La Have Sainte, Hie  t'amerons charged tin' Frm:h col*  twins, 'lhe enemy's cavalry came to  the support of the baffled infantry,  and the Camerous formed sqiare.  And, while Cuirassiers came thundering on, l'ipor Mackay stepped outside  the square of bayonets, and marching  around played tho stirring "Cogadh  no Sithe."  It waB the strains of thc pibroch  that brought life and hope to the besieged garrison in Lucknow; it was the  inspiration of the heroir pipers 'struggling up the ramparts of Tel-el-Keibir  that goaded the British on to victory  and it was l'iper Findlater's playing  of the "C'ock o' the North" to the  Gallant Gordons, while he.lay on the  ground badly wounded, that curried  the heights of Dargai and won tor  him thc Victoria Cross.  In the present campaign the pipers  o-f the Black Watch have sevcra'  times distinguished themselves when  playing the "kilted warriors" into ac  tion. ���  It was. at Loos that Piper David  Simpson of the 2nd Battalion Black  Watch, died 0n the field of glory. "'All  through tho battle roar" wrote one of  his comrh 'es, "rang the soul-stirring  notes of the charge of the piper, at  once a stimulus and a rallying call  to every man wearing the red hackle.  "Three lines of German trenches  fell to the fierce assault. Then the  command came down tho line to have  a try for the fourth-  "Piper Simpson at once got his pipes  in position* turned to his cdmpany  with the cry,: "Come on boys!" and  striking up the battle tune of the  Black Watch, again ran, plftying towards the Ioe. He took ten or twelve  paces, a bullet through the breast  brought him down and, with the ex  uttant yell of his triumphant comrades  in his cars, ho died."  Describing tho inspiring scene oi  the passage a kilted battalion along  one of the rock roads of blunders with  the bagpipe* skirling defiantly a British correspondent at the fr0nt wrote  thus:-  "Tho drone of the pipes Beom to  rouse a cold, Calculating devil under  tho tartan. It is not altogether a  pleasant sight to see a Scottish regiment being played into the trenches,  You can see that there U lulling  ahead; see it in the grim determination of the men, the thrust of tha  jaw, the grip of ehe knotted hands on  the rifle butt, and you feel that the  wail of tho pipes ahead is a battle cry  fiercely urging them on.  "Mon," said a sergeant- from Dumfries, to whom I mentioned this matter of bagpipes inspiration, "mon,  when I hear 'Th' Cock b' the North.'  I could kill yon Germans wi' me bare  hands."   O   COULDN'T FOOL HIM  Coming fresh from the country a  youth had just procured a position in  oity -grocery. As ho had been  carefully warned that the oity folks  would "josh" him because he was from  tho country he was very oautious. One  afternoon a girt entered the store and  said: /  "I should like to get some birdseed, please."  Confident that he had detected a  "joAer" the the youth answered with  n smile:    ^  "No, you can't josh mo. Birds grow  ii'om Gggs, not seed:!."
