Mr. F. tt Bookland ettenoed  on behalf of the Kelowna Fire Brigade  He said he had been asked to bring to  the notios of the oounoil the great!  inconvenience and hindrance to the  work ot the brigade during fires by  pedestrians, automobiles and vehicles  blocking the streets in the vicinity oi  a fire. They wese often very seriously hampered in laying hose or moving  it from one place to another. Drivers  of rigs and automobiles would deliberately pass right over the anas oi  hoes. In addition to the damage thus  done, there was the danger that the  water supply might be entirely out  off, whioh in the midst of a bad firs  might be disastrous. Be suggested  that the publio be requested through  the press to assist the brigade by  keeping to tbo side walks and by  drivers of vehicles keeping away from  the hoes lines.     ...  Mr. Buokland suggested that sums|  means be arranged to give the members of the brigade power to hold the  publio in check and to preserve order.;  After some discussion of this latter  point it was decided that the only  way in whieh t ie council could give  any Batch authority to the members ol  the brigade was to have them sworn  in as special.polios officers, and in,-  struetions were given to the clerk to  inform the brigade that the neoeseary  arrangements would be mads.  A further letter waa read from Mr.  B. L. Lowe, assistant commissary  agent for the O.P.B., requesting the  council to plaoe fSUO to bis credit in  the Bank ot Montreal on or before  ' September 31st, which amount be con-  sidered to be an equitable contribution from Kelowna toward the cost  of erecting a kiosk at Sicamous tor  the display of Okanagan droits and  iregetsbass,  Ths stark woe instructed to reply  that adthostgh the oouncil waa entirely  in sympathy with the erection of such!  e building owing to ths present finan-|  oial condition thsy were unable to  contribute anything this year.  QUARANTINE REGULATIONS  \ letter waa received Irom the Provincial Booid anrsneing particulars of  the length of time for mkim. hows  la which oertain ' lnfeetfous diseases  were present ahosld bs' quarantined.  For small-pox, diphtheria, scarlet fever, spinal saenJagitis and infantile pa-  ralyais^the hones must be quarantined  for various periods. For met  whooping rough and typhoid fever  the quarantine was not necessary, but  a placard must be fixed on the door  as a warning to everyone to be oau-  tious.  The clerk was instructed to request  that ths Medical Health Offioer, Dr.  Boyce, see that the regulations were  enforced.  An inauirv was read from the resi-  dsnt engineer of the C.F.B., at Bevel-  stoke as to whether ths city oould  oould undertake the charging of storage batteries at its electric plant and  as to the unit charge for such work.  A reply was sent to the effect that the  city oould charge smell storage batteries from ths exciter.  A letter was reoeived from tbe Bank  of Montreal requesting that payment  of taxes be need to reduce advances  against ourrent revenue.  Mr. C. H. Seddon wrote oskisg the  oounoil to extend tbe eleotrio light to  his lot on the laksshore between Itcy-  al aad Cadder avenues and also to  oonstruot the 200 feet of road ut the  rear of the lots joining the above  streets.  The clerk waa instructed to reply  that owing to shortage of. funds the  council would bs unable to oonstruot  the road, and the matter of the en-  tension of the light Was handed over  to the oommittee oonoernsd.  A letter waa reoeived from Mr. J.  A. Bigger,.stating that owing to the  present financial conditions he would  perform the duties of building inspeotor as heretofore from Sept. 1st to  Marsh 1st, 1915 for the nominal sum  of IS per saonth.

"There has been,    in fact,   a   four  ing ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  been recently installed, Mr. Joe Ca-  sorso, who rooms above the store, got  out of bed and hurrying to the balcony at the baok caught sight of the  head and shoulders of a man who was  looking out of the back window of the  sausage room back of the butcher  store. He recognised him aa a Chinaman who works at the restaurant next  door. He awakened bis brother, and  thev planned to guard both the front  dave battle��� on the 23rd, 24th, 25th  and 26th of August. During the whole  of this period the British, in conform-;  ity witb a general movement of tbe  French armies, wero occupied in resisting and checking the German advance and in withdrawing to new  lines of defense.  , "The battle began at Mons last Sunday, a week ago, during which    day  and back dawre untilthe police oould:;^" irl'oT the" night, the German at  be summoned.

He  was however arrested later.  Mr. Casorso claims that for a long  period, systematic thefts pf most huve  been going on, on an extensive Male,  but they have been unable to trace  the offender. It was on this account  that the burglar alarm was Installed.

"It must be remembered throughout  that our operations in France are vast  and that we are only on one wing ol  the whole field of battle. This strategic position of ours and our allies is  such that .decisive victories ol our armies in Francs probably would bs fatal to the enemy.

BRITISH NAVAL VICTORY  Considerable excitement was manifested last week-end by the news ol a  groat victory achieved by tbe British  lleet after a daring dash into the very  jaws of ths enemy. A detachment of  cruisers, destroyers snd submarines,  under    command     of    Rear-Admirals  thing suffered by us, were inflicted on' Besttv, George and Christian, and  the enemy, who in dense formation: Commodores Keyes, TrrwhKt and  and in enormous masses marched Goodenough stole round the island of  forward again and again to storm Heliogoland under tho very guns of  the British lines. the enemy, anf], after drawing out    t  "The British retirement proceeded strong force of the German squadron,  on the 35th with continuous fighting, began engagement lasting about eight  although not on the scale of the pre- j hours, in which three German cruisers  vious two days, and on the night of and two destroyers were sunk, and  the 25th the British army occupied others badly damaged.

Moveable turrets containing rapid-fire guns, plaoed in the oornere of the  Eiffel Tower, are turned every fifteen minutes, in preparation for an attack bv aeroplane.  Great Britain has joined with France in objecting to tho purchase by  the United States of any German liners in connection with the plan to build  up an American merchant marine.  , An unsuccessful attempt to wreck a troop train on the Canadian Northern railway about 90 miles east of M ontreal by placing an Iron rail across  the tracks, was mads early Sunday morning, according to announcement bu  Lieut.-Col. Craelman. oommander of the Twenty-first Battery of Montreal)  Running more than forty miles an hour, the train brushed aside the oh  atruction into the ditch.  France is considering the advisability of moving tho seat of her government from Paris to Bordeaux, as a precautionary measure, according to official advices received at Washington. The French foreign office haa discussed the idea of moving the capital with foreign dinlomats, so that thsy  could make proner arrangements. It is considered probable that Ambas��v  dor Herrick will remain in I'aris, in order belter to care lor Ameri, .-.ns  should Paris bs invested by the Gorman army. In the Franco-Prussian war  of 1870, tho capital was temporarily established at Bordeaux.  If Turkey declares war against Creese, Italy will declare war against  Turkey, is the assertion made by the Temps. This paper usual!., - speaks  with official inspiration.  Additional French foross, totalling (00,000 men, will be ready for active  service in about six weeks as a result of the decision announced Monday to  call out ths 1014 young men and the elder classes of tbe reservists. Tbe  reservists will bs equipped and read)  for the field in a few days'.  Mr. J. J.

CONFIDENT FRENCH TROOPS LEAVING PARIS  A French regiment, singing the Marseillaise and full of confidence, marching, through the streets of Paris to entrain for the German frontier.  Everywhere the soldiers were loudly cheered as they passed through tbe  city. The whole French nation is baok of them. Internal polities for the  moment are forgotten in the face of danger from the Germans.  This time the French army is beitter equipped, better trained, and has  more fighting spirit than the army of Napoleon III in 1870. Gen. Joffre,  the commander-in-chief of the army is an experienced warrior having served in the Franco-Prussian war and as a soldier for France ever :>inoe.  Railway Building  Will  Anticipate Early Start on the  Kelowna Branch Line  In connection with the different projects of the C.N.R., in the province,  and the fears that bave been entertained that in viewdof ths war it  might bs necessary to stop all  struction, Sir Richard McBride made  an important statement at Victoria  Monday: nm^l^l_���  "We have just concluded a three  days' conferenoe with Sir Donald  Mann, vice president of the Canadian  Northern," said Sir Richard, "and I  am very happy to be able to say that  much of the difficulty which appeared  to confront and complicate the situation, as a rseult of the war, seems  to have vanished.  "The main object of the conferenoe  was to endeavor to devise ways and  means to accelerate construction, and  from statements mads tb me by Sir  Donald, we are hopeful that arrangements will be completed during the  course of the next few days, which  will permit of the finishing of the  main line within the next few months,  with connection being established with  the principal ooast cities immediately  thereafter.  'Tracklaying was commenced last  week <jn tbe Canadian Northern Pacific on the mainland from Yellow-  head Pass west, so you will see that  the line is already well advanced  toward completion. On this section  100 miles of rails are on hand, ready  to be laid, and ths tracklayers are  working at the rate of thirty-five  miles por month. It is anticipated  that the last spike will be driven  about the middle of December next  This interesting and historic ceremony  will take plaoe at the main Thompson  River canyon.  "With respect to the /Kelowns tins,  Sir 'Donald expressed a great deal of  concern, because of tbe necessity, in  his view of giving the Okanagan [  and adjoining territory the benefit of  the Canadian Northern service at tbe  earliest possible moment. Tbe oom-  nany has expended much money on  surveys, right-of-way and other items  of construction, in addition to which  there hss been a large outlay on the  development of tho Coteau Power  Company, which system is to be used  connection with the electric railways proposed to be established in  the Vernon district in association  witb the railway. The line as laid  out extends from Kamloops to Kelowna via Grand Prairie, with a branch*!  to Lumby. It is anticipated that an  early opportunity will develop which  will enable tbe oompany to push dor-  ward its plans in connection witlfthis  section,"   0   Mr. Fred I.awrie, of Kamloops, confectioner, is in ths city on business.  �����   Praotioally one and a hall million  fast.if lumber belonging to the  plant  of the Canadian Pacific Lumber Co.,  Port Moody, went up In amoks in a  Hera blare whieh broke out in the big  iber yards,of the mill early Patur-  r morning.

Movement to Orpize  St. John's Ambulance  Meeting Called by Mayor for  Monday Night  An effort is being made to stimulate  interest in Kelowna in the work of  the St. John's Ambulance Association  ae one of tbe means by which non-  combatants may lie instrumental in  helping in ths present- crisis by relieving distress or by training bodies of  men or women to assist in the work  of earing for the wounded.  In a circular just received from the  B. C. Council of ihe St. John's Ambulance Association several ways ore  indicated in which help may be rendered through the association. "���  1.���Monies may bs collected. This  may be used locally, or it may be  sent forward to be need as directed by  the individual or centre giving it.  2.���Clothing may be mads and collected. This would probably be suitable for use at the front. Advice will  be given as to what to make.  3.���Monies, not needed locally, and  clothing will be received by the British Columbia Council from individuals  or centres and disposed of as indicated by tbe donors.  To carry on this work effectively, It  is recommended that centres be established in all plaoes where doctors  con be obtained to give lectures In  "first aid", "home nursing," ete.  Those suoosssful in passing the examinations in these subjects should then  be organized into ambulance aad nursing divisions in aecordanos with the  St. John Ambulance Brigade and Overseas regulations.  These can act as centres of activity  for collecting monies, tasking end  distributing clothing, and assisting  the local needy.  PUBLIC MEETING IS CALLED  A number of Kelowna ladies have  presented a petition to the mayor to  call a public meeting together for the  purpose of discussing the organisation  of classes in "first aid" to ths injured  in ordsr to form a corps of the St.  John's Ambulance Prigade in the Okanagan.  A meeting has accordingly been arranged lor next Mondav evening at 8  p.m., in the Board of Trade rooms,  when it is hoped that all ladies and  arentlemen Interested will attend.

The directors ol tho Fall Fair, once  having made up their minds to go  ahead in spite of difficulties of war  und hard times, are putting every energy in making the event a BuccesB.  So far as the lair itself iB concerned  everything depends upon the farmers  and fruit growers themselves, and if  they will realize that not only is their  UBual support needed, but un extra el-  fort as well then the whole thing will  go off with a swing. There is no  doubt but that il the lair can bo sue-  cesslullv carried a,ut without financial  loss the society will bo in a very mucb  better position than if it had been  abandoned.  Once the lair wob dropped it would  undoubtedly bo a difficult matter to  revive it again.  II everyone will do his best unselfishly undor the circumstances, surprising  results might he achieved. There ie a  splendid crop of fruit of all kinds in  the dislrict this year, and on that account there should be no difficulty in  getting logethiT the finest collection  which has ever been shown here.  The gathering ol a big live stock  exhibit should also preBa-nt fewer difficulties now than in thc post, lor it  has been evident to all that o fooling  is beginning to grow in thc minals  ol all the farmers of the district that  more mixed farming methods are neces  sary to establish settlement on a permanent basis.  A new feature and one which will no  doubt bo taken up with enthusiasm is  the idea of "district fruit exhibits" in  whioh thc various districts of Glenmore, Rutland and Ellison, K.L.O.  Bench, and South Kelowna will be  invited to take part. There is nothing so stimulating to progress as a  little healthy rivalry, and we predict  that these district exhibits will prove  in the luture to be es keenly contested as ever the war canoe races are  at the regatta.  The stampede which proved so successful last year is to be iriven again,  anal we hear that already llieie are  maud nroapectB of a large entry. The  round-up is more than anything else  a characteristic western spairt. calling  lor nualitics of courage and endurance  of no mean order. The enthusiasm  with which it was received last year  justified the lieliel that the "Kelowna  Hound-up" could be developed into an  event oi pratvincial importance which  would draw |)cople here as the lamous  Pendleton round-up does to that place.

Magic  bakino  J"-WDEB  A Novel Way of  Growing Potatoes  Changes in Stock  Brand Act  British Officers Prophesied War this Year  Germany's making ready has not  been accomplished in the dark, 'lhe  rest of Europe has kept itsolf fully  informed of what haB been going on.  In this connection it is interesting  to note an assertion and a . prophecy  attributed to Commander Carlyon Bel-  lairs, one-time member ol parliament,  retired officer ol the British navy, author ol an article on navies in ths  ''Encyclopedia Britannica," and Who  is known as a critic on naval subjects.  Commander Bellairs was in Montreal  in September 1912. As related by n  correspondent writing to the Boston  "Transcript" Commander Bellairs told  Montreal friends that he felt no feui  ot a German, outbreak at that time,  since, so far as he could see, the German program ot army and navy expansion would not be complete until  1914. But he expressed the expectation that "about midsummer, 1914 the  Germans would seize, upon any pro-  text to precipitate a "European conflict," nnd added that the probable  excuse would be . some fairly trivial  incident, "likely some outbreak in the  llnlkans."  01 course, this is not the German  view of what happened, but it is very  likely to lie lor all time the British  view-, and even in his1 own country  Commander Bellairs will be honored  as a prophet.  Earl Kitchener's Career  A new aot respecting Stock Brands  in the province ol British Columbia  has recently been passed by the legislature and is of considerable importance to stock breeders, some of whom  will bo obliged to change their brands  so that those ol one district will not  oonllict with those of another. The  following is a summary of some of  tho chief points of the act:W  Tbe presence of recorded brand on  any horse of head of cattle is "prima  facie" evidence of exclusive right of  ownership, whioh is valid only on  the period of tenure for which such  brand is alloted.  Anv person who brands or assists in  branding any stock with an unrecorded brand, or who brands with bis  own brand any stock ol which he is  not the owner, without the authority  nf the owner, or blotches, defaces,  or alters any brands, renders himself  liable to a penalty of two hundred  dollars.  From June last the work of recording brands for the whole province ol  British Columbia has beon in the  hands ol the recorder ol brands, Victoria, B.C., to whom application for  registration should be mode on the  proper forms, accompanied by the prescribed fees.  Brands for cattle should consist ol  ont less than two characters, and Ae  position of tbe brand on the animal  should be stated.  Where the sams brand ie used for  both horses and cattle it must be  nvristersd as two distinct branda.  The fee for recording a oattle brand  is one dollar.   .  Anv horse brand selected by the ap-  plicanl may bo registered, provided  thnt it does not conflict with brands  already recorded. The position oo  lhe animal must he indicated. The  fee for recording a horse brand is ons  dollar, t  Registration ol a brand under this  act provides legal ownership for a  term of four veers from the last day  of December, 1914.  If any two or more owners of stock  havs the same'  or conflicting brands  NO ALUM  -\HOR>ori  From Barn Doors  of Farmers  Earl Kitchener, who iB-ono ol our  greatest and most illustrious soldiers,  was born in l.istowel, in Ireland, on  June 24, 1850. His lather was an army officer and young Kitohouer, following in his footsteps, entered the  Boyal Engineers in 1871, alter having  when just out of his teens, seon not-  vioo on the defenders side of the Fran-  co-Cerman war, and ho was on the  Palestine survey from 1871 to 1878,  which period of servico he followed up  by another four years on the Cyprus  survey. He was then (1882) appointed  to command tho cavalry in Egypt.  With the history ol that country hia  name will long be associated. He  spent sixteen strenuous years thore.  After distinguishing himsoll in the Nile  Expedition he became governor ol Sun-  kirn, which post he hold till 1888. In  the following year he helped, as adjutant-general to * defeat tho Dervishers  at Toski. After ths battle ol Omdur-  man he reoeived tlio thanks ol parliament, was raised to the peerage as a  baron, received a -rant of ��30,0110,  and was promolod G.0.B, In 1890  ho becamo Sirdar in succession to Lord  Grenlell. ft ia a matter of history  that hs planned with consummate rarity of purpose the reconquest of the  Coudsn. He also accomplished sterling work in the South African war,  during which he was appointed as  Lord Hoberts' chief of staff, and for  the best part of three years ho remained there���after the first few  months as commander-in-chief, when  Earl Huberts had returned home. On  the termination of the Boer war Lord  Kitchener was promoted lieutenant-  general and general, created viscount,  and received the thanks of parliament  and a grant of ��60,000, Lord Kitchener's tenure on the Indian Command  followed (1902-1909) and as soon- as it  terminated he made an important tour  of Imperial inspection, whioh resulted,  inter alia, in Australia adopting compulsory service. Hie next appointment was British agent and consul  general in Egypt in 1911, whioh post  is to be kept open for him. At the  last birthday honors an earldom was  ��� conferred on Lord Kitchener.  Iu thc gardening world another iu  stance has beon found of many most  alutd discoveries coning to light  through chance happenings. This is  nn entirely new method of growing potatoes for tho early markets, ono  wh'ch is so simple snd effective that  it cannot lail to be universally adopted, and is oertainly ourious enough  to be placed on record. A few years  since, on a large private e.-tato in England, a ojuuntity of potatoes had beon  placed aside in a dark shed, stacked  in a heap on tho floor. Not being re-  quired lor use, the tubers were _ left  in that position for the beet part ot  a year, and it wus not until tne autumn following that they were examined with the idea ol throwing them  away, it being concluded that after  the long interval they oould not i.e  ol any use. A few spadefuls wore  shoveled into the light, and it was  then that the tubers started to do a  very remarkable thin,;. Every specimen was crowned with little potatoes,  quite white and about tho size of ths  tip of the little linger. More out of  curiosity th n anything else, a number  of thc old tubers wero placed op a  darkened shelf and left there for a few  wee'.s. At the end of that timo it  was found that the small tubers had  Increased very much in s'ss, being as  large as walnuts. A number of the  finest were gathered and cooked, and  were found to bo excellent. Indeed  they wore pronounced by experts to  be superior to the ordinary run of now  potatoes, in thit the consistency of  the tuber was firm, but 1 si in'lined  than usual to waxinesB. Soon after  the discovery, nn exhibit ol the novol  mode ol growing the potatoes was  made at the horticultural show, London, and this caused u great deal of  speculation as to how the nw tubers  wore produced. Latterly a full explanation of tho method has como to  light, and further experiments havs  shown that the discovery is ono which  should rank as of first class importance in gardening circles. It will  doubtless be of interest to outline the  chief points in.the treatment, which  is peculiarly attractive to the country  house owner.  Almost any kind of potatoes usually  grown for keeping purposes is weH  suited for ths novel culture. It ia  better to produce tubers of a good  size, and when making tbe selection  the biggest examples should be pioked  out. Freedom from any blemish  disease is of the utmost importance us  a��y rotten patches on the tubers  might easily spread aud onduDjor the  whole crop. The potatoes employed  must be those which are technically  known as "two-year-olds"; that is.  they are products ail tho previous season's yield. On this account to get  the neoessury stock tbe tubers will  bave to be slo'tod a season ahead.  To those who wisn to save trouble it  may bo roontioned, that it ia always  easy to buy "old" potatoes in tlas  month of July, und these will bs reedy  lor starting ths following September.  It is Bsoossary to find a perfectly  dark place In which the potatoes may  be stored. The absence of light II an  important feature of the oulturs ns s  very little Illumination, il it Is regularly experienced, will make the tubers  expend their energies in sending out  ���hoots rather then in tbo budding of  small tubers. Very good crops might  be produced in .a cellar or tbe comer  of a basement; on the oth>r hand, II  would be quite a simple mutter to  fix up a cupboard suitable for the purpose, some rough sholves on which the  potatoes may be placed. Theso should  be arranged wilh a bordering which  projects tin inch or so above ths level  of the shelf.  Now obtain a quantity ol fine dry  mould and spread this evenly over tha  shelves to the depth of about an Inch.  Tho material should be clean and  sweet and free from any atones.  Ths early fall is about the best time  to start ths culture ol the potatoes-  even if the tubers have already been  sorted, go through them again, making quit* sure that none is In any  way.   diseased.   As     a precautionary  The C.P.R. is reported to be arranging for the adoption on a large scale  of a system of supplementary transportation by motor wagons in the  prairie provinces which will practically bring the railway to the barn doors  of evory farmer in its territory. Every  freight station will be made a depot  for a "fleet of motor wagons" of a  type specially devised for this service, the number varying according to  tho size and importance of the distriot  served. It is expected that important  stations will have from 12 to a score  of these cars in service.  Tho cars, which, owing to the nature  of the prairie territory will not havs  to negotiate any heavy grades are designed to carry about one-sixth of a  railway carload of merchandise and  nre particularly adapted for the transport of grain. The ohiol importance  will, of course be in connection with  the moving of grain harvested in autumn Ind tho belief of the authorities  is that sufficient servioe can be made  of cars for delivering supplies to farmers and so assisting in the establishing of homesteaders on their land as  to justify koeping them in servico all  the year round. Otherwise it is evident that tho Investmont would hardly  be justified.  Dentist.���Have you been anywhere  else before coming to me?  Patient.���I went to seo the druggist  in our village.  Dentist.���And what idiotic advice did  he give you? ��� '  Patient.���He told me to come and  see you, sir.  measure, wipe each tuber with a slight  ly moistened sponge, thus removing  the germs of sny fungoid growth whioh  ure so destructive of vegetable tissue.  II any of the potatoes have started  to shoot from the eyes or growing  points, the buds must be out off. cars  taken nol to bruise the tubers.  Now take each potatoe separately  end place it on the shelf, so that it is  hall buried in the mould. Bo not allow tho tubers to touch one another,  and settle them all woll down Into ths  soil. The, ii Ib nothing moro to bs  dono, now save to give an occasional  glanoe at the potatoes to see that none  are rotting. After a short while il  will be observed that the old tubers  are beginning to be covered with tiny  white points, which a law days later  resolve themselves into little potatoes  increasing very rapidly in size unti,  they are lurge enough to handle, when  tho first instalment ol the, crop is  ready for gathering. When all ths  sizable pott, toes havo boon picked of),  'be old tubers may be placed in their  former position, where thoy will go on  producing. In a few weeks it will be  possible to'gather another orop, and  this will go on through a regular succession of gatherings.  Now and again it will be found that  the old potatoes will endeavor to start  outgrowths and these should at onoa  be removed. <  The trouble in this direction will not  be great if tbe apartment is really  dark, the light only being let in on  the few occasions when it is necessity  t0 examine the tabers. Even then it  is better, if possible to make use ol  an artificial illunvtnant, as very .iule  daylight seems to excite the tubers to  send out shoots. It will be found  that the budding off process will go  go on until there is nothing left of ths  old potatoes but dry skin. Indeed, it  has been stated that the tubers will  send off more than their own weight  weight in little potatoes, though how  (his oan be so it does not set n racy  to explain.  Up to the present time the only way  in which new potatoes out of season  could be secured was by the ooetly and  diffloult method of forcing tho plants  in frames. This haa nover been a satisfactory matter, as many gardeners  can boa*' witness, the crops thus  cured not being of particularly good  quality or large in amount. Moreover the season lor the lorood article  is comparatively restricted. Under the  new system it is possible to havs a  succession ol crops of new potsto?B  from September until about ths time  when tbe outdoor growth supply Is  available.  As has already boon Indicated, the  chief points about the potatoes produced in the manner described above  are that they are ol excellent Itavbr  and consistency. Moreover, thoy have  a skin whloh is so thin that there  is no need of scraping or peeling.  Owing to ths manner in whioh I hey  are produced, very littlo cleaning is  required.  For thoae who are interested In the  culinary aids of the question it may be  useful lo add a word as to the cooking of the potatoss. It Is declared to  bo a desirable feature of ths preparing  that the little potatoes should be put  into cold water, and then kept boiling  briskly for about ten minutes.

The aged Russian foretold with considerable accuracy the state in which  Europe now finds herself. Whether he  was correct as to his vision of a singls  man again holding the destiny of the  old world for a decade remains to ba  seen.  Emperor William of Germany asked  the Czar of Russia three years ago to  obtain for him a message from Tolstoy something that he had neve  written before. The Gear, anxious to  oblige, commanded Countess Nastasia  Tolstoy,' grandniece of the sage, to  interview Leo Nicolaevitch, aa he was  familiarly called, and tq. secure from  him the desired document.  This prophetic message iB known ss  "Tolstoy's Vision" by his admirers.  Printed in Russia in 1912, it was  translated and first circulated among  friends of the Mosoovite philosopher as  a privately printed' and little known  pamphlet.  Following the royal command, Countess Tolstoy visited her granduncls at  his oountry estate and explained very  briefly her mission. He listened curiously and replied: ,  "Very strange. I would be glad to  send a message to royalty, but ths  trouble with me is that I have written  all my life messages for tne mob. I am  not accustomed to lhe conventions of  court diction. However, I will think  the matter over."  A few moments afterward her aged  host asked the countess to write, as  his hands were then paralyzed. Tolstoy slowly leaved back in his chair,  covered his eyes with his hands and  remained absolutely silent. Then,  straightening up like one in a trance,  he began in a low and hollow voice:  "This is a revelation of events of a  universal character, which must shortly oome to pass. Their spiritual outlines are now before my eyes. I see  floating upon the surface of the sea of  human fate the huge silhouette of a  nude woman. She, is���with her beauty,  her poise, her smile, her jewels��� a  suner-Venus. Nations rush madly  after her, each of them eager to attract her especially. But she, like an  eternal courtesan, flirts with all. In  her hair an ornament of diamonds  and rubies is engraved her name,  'Commercialism.' As alluring and bewitching as she seems much destruction and agony follows in her wake.  Her breath, reeking of sordid transactions; her voice of metallic character,  like gold, and her look of greed ars  so much poison to the nations who  fall victims to her charms.  "And behold she has three gigantic  arms, with three torches of universal  corruption in her hand. The lirst. torch  represents the flame of war, that the  beautiful courtesan carries from city  to oity and country to oountry. Patriotic answers with flashes of honest  flame, but the end is the roar of guns  and musketry.  "The second torch bears the flame of  bigotry and hypocrisy. It lights the  lamps only in temples and on the  altars of false institutions. It carries  the seed of falsity and fanaticism. It  kindles the minds that ars still in the  cradles    and follows   them to    their  Remarkable German  Denunciation of  Present War  Germany's Defest Would Mesn  Her Ultimate Solvation  Professor F. V. Biethdorf, of the  staff of tbe Woodstock College, and a  former German soldier, has written a  remarkable letter in denunciation of  the German ffiaiser. After stating  that the quarrel in the present war  is not with tbe German people. Professor Riethdorf says:  "We must deeply sympathize with  the German people in tbe sufferings  and dangers brought upon them by  their ruling classes, by an oligarchic,  insane, military government. It is the  Germany of the 'clinched fist' and  'drawn sword', of the 'shining armor'  and tho 'sabre rattling in the scabbard,' that calls for no sympathy on  our part. It is the Germany that  has precipitated the monstrous world |  struggle of the day that fills us all  with horror and indignation.  "I am a native German and a former German soldier. Hy own position in this struggle is porfoctly clear.  My loyalty to the British Flag makes  me stand against any and all enemies  of Britain. If need be I should even  fight against Germany though with a  bleeding heart. Furthermore, I desire disaster to the German army in  this war, for the reason that it will  mean restoration of fellowship among  the western nations for one of the  greatest peoples of Europe. A liberated, free democratic Germany will  start a new and lasting era of prosperity, of peace, arm in arm with  England and France.  "Germany's defeat will mean the  establishment of a German republic,  and the elimination ol William II, and  all that he stands for.' Such things  as 'divine right' and 'mailed fist' are  anachronisms, an insult to the intelligence of the people of the twentieth  century. William II, is tbe common  foe of Europe, and he must be eliminated. Defeat of Germany in this  war means ultimate salvation and  freedom for her; Germany will be the  greatest gainer through defeat."   a   A PROBLEM FOR SCHOOL BOYS  A decided economy in fuel consumption is  effectedJbyjirUngjDJckelled steel in  M'ClaryS  'fanje  oven.

Russia's Enormous  Military Strength  Could put Millions of Men in  the field  In considering the potential strength  of the armies which RuBsia, in the  course of a long war, might put in the  field, says a writer to the New York  Sun, it may he pointed out that military service in that empire ol more  than 171,000,000 people is universal  nnd compulsory. Service under the  Hair begins at the age of twenty and  lasts lor twenty-three yearB. Usually,  it is proportioned as follows: Three  or lour years in tho aotive army, fourteen or filteen in tho Zapas, or first  reserves, and five years, in tho Ppol-  chonie, or Becond reserves. For tho  Cossacks, those lighters who are a con  spicuous' element of Russia's military  strength, there is hardly a cessation  in discipline during their early manhood. Ifolding their lands by military  tenure, they are liable to servioe for  life. Furnishing thoir own equipment  and horsfiB���The Cossack is almost invariably a cavalryman���they pasB  through three periods of four years  each, with diminishing duties, until  they wind up in tho reserve, which replaces casualties in timo of war.  Russia^ field army alone consists  of three divisions: The army of European Russia, the army of Asia, already referred lo, and the army ol tho  Caucasus. Tho Kuropcan Russian lielil  army consists of twenty-seven army  corps���each corps comprising, at lighting strength, about 36,1)00 men ��� and  some twenty odd cavalry divisions, ol  4,000 lnarsemen each. With the field  army of thc Caucasus and the first  and second reserve divisions of the  Cossacks, the total would be brought  to nearly 1,600,000 men. , Wilh tho  Asiatic armj', tho grand total, neennl-  iog to tho latest figures, would give  the Kussinn armies a fighting' strength  ol 1,850,000 men, ol whom it would bo  practicable to assemble, say 1,200,000  in u single theatre ol war.  With respect to tho armies fthieh  could be. put in the field in time ol  war, there are conflicting citimntts.  It Booms oertain that Russia's wi'i  strength iB more than 4,500,000 men.  but, of course, tho train servico and  the artillery (or such a lorce iB lacking. Two and three-quarter million  men could probably be mustered at  ono time. As far as arms go, the  Russian infantryman carries a fairly  effective rifle, though not tho most  modern. It is a .299-oalibro magazine  gun, holding five cartridges, and it ia  sighted to 3,000 yards.  In the event of a prolonged war, in  which the tide ol affairs shoulal put  Russia strictly on tho delonsive, shs  would be less easily invaded than any  iargo country of Europe. The very  extent of hor empire, protected by natural barriers at almost every aids  whore she touchos northeast Europe,  would present almost insuperable difficulties to tho invader. Napoleon  paid dearly for his fortitude in pushing his columns into Moscow. The only conditions under which a repetition  of such a feat is conceivable are not  likely to bo found during the sort of  European war whieh is now on. German and Austrian troops, will be too  much preoccupied with lighting within and along thoir boundaries to be  able to give their undivided attention  to such a problem as a successful invasion of RuBsla.  Russia's military defences, too, are  formidable. The Baltic and thu Black  Seas, two avenues of approach, ars  defondsd by Russian Hoots. Kronstadt  the chief Baltic baso, is heavily fortified, as are sevoral other Baltic ports.  Sevastopol, on tho Black Sea, and  headquarters lor that fleet, is strongly fortified, and other Black Sea  ports are not without adequate defences. A Russian flotilla on tho Caspian Sen is a guarantee that communication will not bo broken into In  that quarter.

By land Russia's frontier ia guarded by numerous fortifications.

And  through tho heart ol the province ia  the likeliest land npproaoh to ths  now and the ancient capital ol Russia.  To mako matters wairse (or the Austrian or German invader, their own  provinces whioh mareh with Russia's  are for the most part strongly disaffected. These Polish provinces, how-  over unfriendly toward Russia as ons  ol tho dismemberers ol the Polish  kingdom aro after all strongly bound  in blood and H|Kech lo tlio Russian  nation.

Holland, Inventor  of Submarine  John Philip Holland, inventor of the  submarine, used by practically every  navy in the world, died recently at  his home, 38 Newton street, Newark,  Bays a New York press dispatch of  recent date lie had been ill since  early in July. Pneumonia waa the  direct cause of his death. 'He was 72  years old.  John Holland was born in Count  Clare, Ireland, at Liscannor, February  24th, 1842, and was educated at the  school of the Christian Brothers, < at  Limerick. While he was yet a stu'  dent, he became imbued with ideas of  Irish independence to be won by foroe.  To that ond, he thought it would be  necessary to devise some means of  breaking the power of Great Britain  on the sea. The story of Robert Fulton's partly successful experiments  with Submarine torpedo boats directed  his attention to the construction of  such vessels.  Before' ho was out of his teens he  became a school teacher, and continued in thnt work for fifteen years. All  that time he was engaged in studying  niarine engineering and other branches  of science which would enable him to  fulfil hiB dcBigns. He also saved what  monoy ho could from his meagre salary for tho same purpose. Then he  came to America, settled at Peterson,  N.J., taught sohool there for five  years, and continued his experiments.  In 1875 he laid before tho Navy  department of the United States plans  fur a submarine boat, but reoeived littlo encourngemont. Two years later  he built his first vessel of that kind  at Piiterson. It was a crude affair,  of wood, with a clumsy engine, and  wilh the diving rudder in the central  axis���the wrong place. The boat was  14' feet lone and 3 feet wide,  Finally Mr, Holland decided tho boat  was too small, even for experimentation; so ho took out the engine and  loft the hull at the bottom of the  Passaic. Then he came to New York  and built another boat at Bolometer's  shipyard, at West 13th streot and the  North rivor. This was 31 leet long  and contained a petroleum engine.  This vessel in turn proved unsatisfactory.  In 1893 the new department, as the  result of a competition, awarded Mr.  Holland a contract for the construction of a submarine boat at government expense The result was a boat  85 loot long with a petroleum engine,  whieh nover could be operated.  Then Mr. Holland, who had organized a company for building submarine boats, transferred his activities to  the Crescent shipyards at Elizabeth,  K.J., of whioh Arthur L. Busoh, was  superintendent, and undertook the  building of a boat entirely according  to Mb own plans, without the interference of others, to whieh he charged  tho failure of the government boat.  The result was the Holland, a boat  nearly lifty-lour feet long, more than  ten feet in diameter, and with a displacement of seventy-five tons. This  boat was launched, .taken to Perth  Ambov and there successfully tried hy  Mr. Holland on St. Patrick's Day,  1808.  Yield Not to Panic  Tho man who takes to the cyolone  cellar aB soon as there is an unexpected ohange in commercial conditions is not doing hiB duty to the  empire. Tho man who decided ho  should hide his cash in a hole in tho  wall and dismiss hia employoes and  pull down tho shutters is an unpatriotic man and is stabbing tho empire.  The man who talks blue ruin and does  business on tbe blue ruin plan is unworthy ol a place is a rising city like  this. The patriot who docs not yield  readily to panic and who does his  part to keep the Hag (lying at home  is doing service (or the empire.

Deputy Minister of the Interior.  N.B.��� Unauthorised publication of  this advartissmsnt will not bs paW 'or  Democracy at War  with Military  Aristocracy  Says Mr. Winston Churchill, Head  of Britain's Admiralty  In an interview granted a United  pross correspondent Friday Mr. Winston Churchill declared that the war'  was started and was being maintained  by the Prussian military aristocracy,  which set no limits io its ambition  for world-wide predomination. "In  a word," he said, "it is the old struggle ol 100 years ago against -Napoleon. The grouping of the forces is  different; the circumstances are different; the occasion is different; man,  above all, iB different���happily��� but  the issue is the same. We are at  grips with Prussian militarism. England stands right in ths path of this  ever-growing power.  "Our military foroe is perhaps  small, but it is good, and grows; our  naval and financial resources are  considerable, and with .these we  stand between this mighty army and  dominion which would certainly not  be content with European limits."  Asked whether the end of the war  would see some abatement of  the struggle of armaments, he replied: "That depends upon the result.  If we succeed, and if, as a result of  our victory, Europe is rearranged as  far as possible with regard to tho  principle of nationality and in accordance with the wishes of the people who shall dwell in the various  disputed areas, we may look forward with hope to a great relaxation  and easement.  "But if Germany wins, it will not  bo ii victory of the quiet, sober industrial elements in Germany, nor of  the common people of Germany, with  all their virtues, but a victory of the  blood and iron military school whose  doctrines and principles will then  have reoeived a supreme and terrible vindication.  "I cannot understand why Germany has not been contented with  her wonderful progress since the battle of Waterloo. For the last half  century she has been the centre of  Europe; courted by many; feared by  many; treated with deference by  No country has had such a reign  prosperity and splendor.  "Yet all this time she has been  discontented; solicitous ol admiration; careless of international law,  worshipping force and giving us all  to understand that her triumphs in  the past and her power in the present were little compared with what  she sought in the future.  "Now tho great collision has come,  and it is well that' the democratic  nations of the world���nations, I mean  where the people own the government  and not the government of the people  ���should realize what is at stake.  "The French, Tho English, the American system of government by popular election and parliamentary debate,  with the kind of civilization which  flows from suoh institutions, are  brought into direct conflict with the  highly efficient imperialistic bureaucracy and military organization of  Prussia.  "That is the issue. No partisanship  is required to make it plain. No sophi  stry can obscure it.  "British democracy" he concluded  with its limited monarchy and ancient  parliament, its ardent social philanthropic dreams, is engaged for good  or for ill, in a deadly grapple with  Ihe might ol Prussian autocratic rule.  "It Ib our system of civilization and  government against theirs. We are  conscious ol the greatness of the times.  We recognize the consequence and proportion of events. We feel that, however inadequate we may be, however  unexpected the ordeal may be, we are  under the'eye ol history, and, the ia-  suo being joined, England must go  ft>rwnrd to the very end."  all  of  Indian Troops for.  the War  That ths employment of native Indian troops was meant by Lord Kitchener was confirmed by the Marquis of  Crewe, secretary of state for India.  The marquis said:  "It haa been deeply impressed on the  government that the wonderful wave  ot enthusiasm and loyalty at the pres:  ont time passing over India is largely  due to tha desire ol the Indian people  that Indian soldiers should stand side  by side with thoir comrades in ths  British army.  "India is awaro of tho emnloymont  of African troops to assist the Frenoh  army, and it would bave been a disappointment to India if they had been  debarred from taking part in the war  in Europe.  "Our army will thus bs reinforced by  soldiers���high soulsd men��� of first-  rate training, and 1 am certain that  they will give ths best possible ao-1  count of themselves.  "I was told yesterday by the viceroy  of India that some of the principal  Indian princes had sent a gift of fifty  lacs of rupees (about *2,5O0,0O0) for  tha use of the troops in the Held, and  there have been several offers of ths  kind.  "I feel Qonfldent therefore, that thu  action we take will meet with a most  enthusiastlo reception in India, and t  helievo it will be approved by your  lordships, ths Rouse of Commons, and  bv publio opinion generally."

Alderman    Sutherland said he    had  been along with Alderman Adams   to  examine the O.K. Lumber Co.'s   sawdust pile.    They had found a considerable quantity of sawdust in good condition.    Dr. Boyce had informed them  that the company would turn over tho  sawdust to thc city in exchange    for  light and water to the sawmill, office,  factory and store, during the tune the  sawdust was being regularly delivered  to the power house, and also     upon  condition  that one of the company's  teams be    used to haul the sawdust,!

He  also pointed out that if the counoil  approved of the arrangement it would  onlv cost in actual cash the amount  of Light and Water rates affected and  Ht the same time would cut down unpaid taxes.  It was finally decided to accept Dr.  Noyce's offer under tho conditions as  stated above, and a resolution was  passed to that effect.  Alderman Copeland reported that the  Public Works committee had examined  the concrete sidowalks constructed by  Messrs. Bigger k McGregor. The committee was unanimously of the opinion that the work had been done in a  very satisfactory manner, and that  the unpaid balance due under the contract be paid. Messrs. Bigger & McGregor had agreed to give a personal  guarantee for a portion of the Law-  son avenue sidewalk whioh had not  boen constructed striotly in accordance with the engineer's specifications.  It was decided to inform the contractors that the council would give  favorable consideration to their account when presented.  The meeting was then adjournvd until the following Friday.
