 clottnm U crorti  VOL. vm.  NO. 19.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. MARCH 30, 1916���6 PAGES  11.50 Per Annum  \  Volunteer Reserve Will  Start Drill Monday  Meeting to Reorganize is Well  Attended - W. H. Crawford  to be O.C.  A largely attended meeting was hu!d  in the old aohoolhouse last Monday to  effect the reorganization oi the iiol-  own��� Volunteer Reserve. Mayor Jones  oooupied the chair, and spoke ol the  good work done by the Reserve since  first organized and the many efficient  men it had supplied to the active service forces, a large proportion oi whom  were either officers or non-coms.  There was some disoussion relative  to a proposal to ohange the name of  the organization, but this met with  so much opposition that it waB eventually dropped.  The ballots upon being counted resulted in the election of Mayor Jones  as president, W, H. Crawford as O.C,  alnd R. E. Denison as secretary.  Mr. W. Crawford who was elocted  to the position oi Officer Commanding  the Kelowna Volunteer Reserve, has  had very considerable military experience, having: served through the North  West Rebellion 0r 1WH5 with the Winnipeg Field Battery, the one which so  promptly advanced to the support; of  the Royal Grenadiers and the Midland  battalions in their intrepid und successful charge . against the rifle pits  of the Breeds, a charge which practically ended the Rebellion.  Later Mr. Crawford took a course  with "B" battery (permanent force)  at Kingston, and passed successfully  as a Lieutenant, he also served for a  time with the Royal Northwest,Mounted Police, a magnificent sohool for  discipline and instruction.  The,Reserve are to be congratulated  on having the services of so able a  soldier, and with the assistance of  two other veterans, Col. Sergt. Finch  late Royal Engineers, a Boer War  veteran, and Sergt. Chaplin, late Royal Marines,' the proud possessor of  the Boer and Boxer medals, they  should obtain valuable drill and instruction during the ensuing season.  It was decided that Monday evenings  at 8 o'clock be fixed for drill par-  poles.   O-   ��� Westbank News  United Growers Make Change  in Financing Methods  In a circular to, the members of the  local branches of the Okanagan United  Growers. Ltd., the announcement js  made that in order to afford tho Central office a more satisfactory means  of financing its business, and at the  same time to provide shipping members with a more easily negotiable  form of 'acknowledgement 6f the amounts retained Worn their returns by  the central office for capital account,  the shareholders of the Central \ at  their recent annual general meeting  approved the following revised plan,  which is to become effective with the  season of 1916:  Tho Central will issue to shipping  members, bonds instead of notes. The  bonds will be payable five years from  date of issue nnd will be payable to  bearer. They will have interest coupons attached, and interest will be at  the rate of five per cent, per annum,  payable yearly.  In 1916 the deductions from growers'  returns will be three per cent, as heretofore, but beginning with the season of 1U17 the St/me will be reduced  to tw0 per cent, of the sale price.  The increase from four per cent, to  five per'cent, in th.' rate of interest  paid by the Central, the insurance o'  negotiable bonds instead of notes,  payment oi interest yearly und the  reduction fro*n ih'ea to two per cent,  in the amount to be withheld from  returns will, it is believed afford a  plan for financing the Central office,  which will be very much more attractive to shipp'n ( niotr/rers generally.  The three-year notes for 1913, 1914  and 1915 deductions will be paid by  the Central at maturity. Holders' of  these notes may convert them into  bonds (at any time', if th>y wish to  do so, or, ��if preferred, will receive  principal and interest in cash nt maturity.  * (From our m CorrMpoodtat.t  Mr. Scott Blackwood, was a visitor  to Kelowna last Friday.  ' ��� *  Mr. A. Nicol spent last Saturday in  Kelowna on business.  Pte. W. Thacker of the 172nd Battalion, of ^lowna spent last Sunday  at his home here.  Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Martin, of Kelowna, who have been spending the  past week in Westbank returned home  on Monday morning.  ���        *  Provincial Sohool Inspector Anfltey  was in the distriot last Tuesday and  visited the Westbank school and, also  Glenrosa.  Privates George and William Hewlett were passengers from Kelowna on  Saturday might, returning tQ Kelowna  after a brief week-end stay at     their  home tiers.  ��� t  Westbankers this week were reluctantly forced to bid farewell to another  of their valued families, Mr. and  Mrs. JoneB and children, who left in  the*eorly part of the week for Rook  ('reek, Kettle Valley. Mr. and Mrs.  ���I ones have resided in the district for  several years and during that tune  have made many friends to whom then;  departure is a source of much regret,  also Howard,  Ralph and Frank, will  be much missed by their schoolmates.  ��� ���  Through the courtesy of the looal  Farmers' Institute a G0vernnuns Tacking sohool was held in Westbank from  Wednesday to Saturday of last week.  Although fow of tho ranchers ttUended  the lessons, many of the younger boys  und women of the district followed the  course with much interest and industry. Besides the abundance of practice given in packing, many useful  notes on grading and shipping of the  fruit were supplied by the competent  instructor, Mr. 'P.-Neve of Salmon  Arm. In the speed test held on tho  last day Miss Pearl Gellatly won first  place, her speed being 12 minutes for  one box.  Letters of Dr. John McKay  The now famous letters of Dr. .Jolin  MoKay, on the subject of the appointment of the head of the B. ('������ University were submitted to the House yesterday, and they do much to explain  the animosity with which* the principal' of Westminster Hall has been attacking what he has described as a  "God cursed government." The letters show that at one time, Dr. McKay  expected to be appointed president of  the provincial university and his correspondence with the Hon. Dr. Young  and the late premier reveal his keen  nnuicty to get the position and his  bitterness against those whom he iroa-  gfood were opposing him. Eventually  he ascertained that Dr. Wcsbrook was  to be appointed, upon which he wrote  to Premier McBride stating that he  did not propose "Tamely to submit to  such treatment." The government  claims that Dr. MoKay was never  promised the position, but along with  other cdiirntioftilisls was asked if he  would be free to accept if it was offered. Following the appointment of  Dr. Weebrook, Dr. McKay commenced  his open attacks upon the administration, to which previously, according to  his correspondence, hs bad bt:cn most  friendly,indeed. ���   O   BIRTHS  CHII.DRRS.-On Wednesday, March 29  to Mr. and Mrs. H. 0.

The proposed new Workmen's Compensation Aot is likely to contain a  scheme for state insurance whioh has  so far been vigorously opposed by insurance companies. It 'is understood  that the committee enquiring into tho  subject recommends that the board  administering the a��t make an annual  proportionate tax on all employers of  labor, the board making payment* direct to workmen in caso of injury.  This, it is believed will be the fairest  alike to'employers and employees.  increased slightly white that for h  pitalB and charities Has been 'increased  $150,000. *Vdministration, other than  salaries, has been decreased by $70,-  000; that of education by $50,000 and  the vote for agriculture by $60,000.  The cost of transport has dropped by  $40,000, a Baving of $100,000 has been  made in miscellaneous items.  The budget speech is a vuluminous  document of some forty-oue typewritten rihcetu; it deals fully with all departments of the government expenditure and revenuo and discusses present conditions as they oxipl in this  province. A completo statement is  provided showing the loans effected in  British Columbia since confederation.  The loans sine* WW total $24,915,1^6.  Of this amount loans to tho extent  of $4,191,980 have matured and have  been retired. The loans outstanding  at the present time amount tp ...$21,-  155,146; the sinking fund accumulated  amounts to $2,563,128, leaving tho net  debt at $18,589,718. In connection  with the public debt the province haB  the liabilities incurred on account of  the guaranty of railway bonds. The  total amount of these guarantees is  $80,322,072; of this amount about  $57,000,000 has-been earned. The Dominion government having given aid  to the Canadian Northern to the extent of $45,000,000, hftB practically relieved the province of liability to that  extent. An explanation has been  made in the Budget of the reasons  leading up/to the payment by tho  province last January of "$316,000 interest due on bonds floated by the  Pacific Great Eastern, It is stated  that tho government paid this interest  in order that the company would not  have to default and in security for  the advance has the personal covenant of Messrs. Foley, Welsh & Stewart. The importance of tho early  completion of the road, in order to  place it on an operating and dividend paying basis !b emphasized.  The budget deals at length with  the industrial conditions of the preceding calendar year.  Satisfaction is taken in the splendid  increase in tho value of agricultural  produce within tho province in 1915.  Tho total for that year waB $30,873,-  000, ttn increase of $689,700 over 1914.  This increase is in reality-greater than  these figures would indicate. Values  for 1915 averaged 10 per cent., lower  than for 1914. Based on the same  valuations the amount of home production for 1915 would be $33,961,070  or an increase of $3,776,970 over 1914,  The past year has been a prosperous  one for the fishing industry, and the  calendar year for 1915 shows a total  valuo of fish landed ut B. 0. ports at  $13,500,000, an increase of nearly $2,-  000,000 ovor the previous year.  Some reference is made to tho water  control in the province. Of the 7030  old records before the board of water  rights investigation,5,665 have been  dealt with and the remainder wilt bo  taken up this year. The revenue from  water now averages over $40,000 a  year. It is expected that with tho  construction of the new railways,  many power sites thus made available  will be developed. Present appearances  would indicate that the great Btrain vn  connection with the financial operations of municipalities is now past  and that with the rigorous ecoftomy  which is now being practiced the credit of B.iC municipalities will be maintained on a lovel with those in any  part of Canada. *  rights surveys, also $10,000 for dry  lands investigation and $50,000 to aid  in encouraging lumber trade. A sum  of $35,000 is sot aside for bounties in  tho game department.  The public works estimates comprise  works and buildings $606,900; roads,  streets, bridges and wharves $2,255,-  800; subsidies and maintenance of  steamboats, ferries and bridges, $115,-  660. Tho district appropriations for  'ut'ds, streets, bridges and wharves  are practically the same as tho present closing fiscal yoar and are as follows: Aiberni $55,500; Atlin, $16,000;  Cariboo, $123,000; Chilliwack, $35,300;  Columbia $36,000 Comox $59,500; Cow-  khan $33,300; Cranbrook $41,000 Delta, $22,500; Dowdney $68,500; Escfcui-  malc, $36,000*; Pernio $41,000; Grand  Forks, $28,800; Greenwood, $19,800;  lhe Islands, $27,000; Kamloops, $72,-  000; Kaslo, $36,000; Lillooet $65,000;  ffanaimo, $9,000; Newcastle $24,300?

The sum set aside f0r education is  $1,524,500, and for agriculture, 5176,-  500, the latter includes the following;  Administration and outside services  $20,000; board of horticulture $500;  crop competitions in fruits and vege  tables and garden and vacant lot com  petitions and demonstrations $2,000;  demonstration orchard and experimental trees $1,000; fruit packing schools,  $1,500; agricultural associations $30,-  000; B.

The per capita grant to the city,  municipality and rural school districts  will total $963,000; and the salaries of  teachers in assisted schools to $310,-.  000. The sum of $20,000 is set aside  for agricultural education and $15,000  f0r industrial education with $14,000  for the education of the deaf, dumb  and blind. The sum of $175,000 is  provided for the completion and maintenance of tho new B. C. building in  London. England. $200,000 for construction of publio schools througho i  the provinoe.  Grants to British Columbia regiments total $5,000, to the provincial'  libnary $10,000, the Canadian patriotic fund $6,000; to tho Boy Sc0uts,  $1,000, to the Victorian order ot nurses, $500J; to the returned soldiers' aid  commission $15,000.  The supplementary estimates of w  nenditure 1915-1916 which are add:  fiona, to the estimates brought down  a year Ago, total $125,662.35; they  include such items as $10,000 extra  bounty on wolves, coyotes, etc; $2,-  500 Woodward's Landing ferry across  the FraBer river, $1,500 'Vernon Edge-  wood road; 96,300 Rioamous -Mara  rood $6,700; relief work, Prince George  and small over-expendituree in sevoral  of the electoral districts. There was  also a refund of $15,000 to Twohy  Bros., for railway construction roads  along the North Thompson river which  It is understood that the government  will shortly bring down a bill giving  land speculators who are in arrears on  payments due the crown s&x months in  which to pay up. Failing which tho  government will probably take back  the land sold them, allowing them an  amount of land in proportion to sums  already, paid to the administration.  The proposed act will of course not  apply to bona-fide settlers who may  be in arrears. It is said that there  is about nine million owing to the  government o^ land sales and u large  amount of this represenes payments  which are in arrears. r  This would seem to be a reasonable  wav of getting over a difficulty caused  by the great slump in land Values  which has left so many with white  elephants on- their hands. N0t all  land speculators are the sharks and  thieves Borne people find it convenient  to call them. Many big and bona-fMe  land settlemnnt schemes in various  parts of the province which if carried  out would have built up desirable  farming communities, have been left  high and dry by the receding wave ol  financigl prosperity.... To follow the  cry of n somewhat hysterical minority  would cause such people to lose money  invested in perfectly good faith, und  inflict a hardship all round.   O   Graham Co. Will Buy Direct  From Growers  One of the most interest log items  in the province took over.  The farmers of the distriot will no  doubt be interested in the following  letter sent by tha manager of the  Graham Company's evaporating plants  in this district to the Kelowna Board  of Trade. While the relations between  the farmers here and the company were  of the pleasantest kind, there was at  the outset some little dissatisfaction  caused through the intervention of  third parties in the purchasing of tlie  produce needed, and as indicated ia  tho letter an effort is to be made to  avoid this during the coming season.  Vernon, B. C.  The Secretary ' March 14, '16  Kelownn Board of Trade,  Kelowna, B. C.  Dear Sir.���Our plant is closing in  Kelowna this week and the writer win  be leaving for Belleviille, Ont. When  I get down there I will find out what  our firm requires for next year anri  the prices wo are willing to pay, end  will advise you so that you oan give  the growers an idea what goods will  be required.  I wish you would advise the growers  also that it is our intention to    buy  direct from the growers so that   they  will get the    full benefit of the prices  we are   paying without any commission to anyone else.     We also intend  to commence operations just as soon  as the crop is ready another year and  in this way we could have the growers haul direct from his field without  any other parties handling.  Yours truly,  The Graham Company.  Per,  L. B0ne.  Allies in Conference  A united conforenos "I the representatives of lhe A Hi id nations is being  held this week in Paris.

Combined naval  and aerial bombardment by the allies  has reduced it to a chaos of crumb  ling masonry. The majority of the  air bombs fell upon the Solvay works,  which caught fire, and the harbor,  where several mine layers were badly  damaged."  Million Dollars for Farm  Loans at Low Rate  Agricultural Credits Act Will  Come into Immediate Operation  The announoement that the provincial government has been 'successful in  placing at. a comparatively low rate  a loan for a million dollars to lie a] *  plied for the purposes of the new Ag-  riculturalCreditrf' Act will Come as welcome news to the farmers all over the  province, and not the, least to the farmers of this district, many of whom  are looking for monetary assistance un  der the act to enable them to pro'\r*  ly stock and equip their farms.  The government succeeded in getting  the money for a twenty-live year term  at the rate of 5.63 per cene.  In New Zealand, where this system  has been fairly well perfected, the oust  of ad'iiinistrati,oii of the fund runs to  about 1 per oent. This means that  applied in British Columbia the  farmer will get his loan, for a*  period of 25 years if he wisheB, at 6��  per cent, or u fraction more.  The money is expected to be placed  in the hands of the government some  time this week and the operation of  the) act is to be brought into force at  on?e by an order-in-council. Then will  come the organization- of the loan'ng  and inspection board and the arrange-  ing dt the official mach'nery to handliy  tho business. It is presumed that  six weeks or two months will elapse  before the first cash advance by way  of loan" will actually lie made to the  farmers. *  In spite of the croakings and pessimistic predictions of the Liberals that  the Act would never be brought mto  force it seems as though the farmers  are to benefit sooner then was generally thought possible under present  conditions and the low rate at which  the bonds have been sold should do  much to set aside the foolish nnd  harmful cry that ttoe credit of the  province has gone to the dogs. It is  extremely likely that further sums wiH  in the very near future be placed at  the disposal of thc commission.  llightly handled, this timely assistance in the building up of a sounder  agriculture in the province should be  of incalculable benefit, as it has ] roved in the many other countries where  it has been tried.

German Schemes in tlie  Western Hemisphere  Extraordinary revelations of reputed plans of (iermnny so establish a  foothold in several republics of tho  western hemisphere, and in the Danish West Indies, in defiance of the  Monroe doctrine,, aro in1 the possession  of the committee of foreign relations  of the United States senate.    -  The documents in tho possession of  tho committee purport to prove:  That Germany sought to establish a  sphere of Influence in Nicaragua by  .purchase of th? inter-ocean canal  route and tho right to establish navel  bases.  That Germany sought to gain a  footing in Columbia by -negotiating  for an inter-ocean canal concession,  the furchase ot plantations, nnd the  establishment of a naval base at Car-  tago.  That Germanv gained paramount influence in Paraguay by organizing thc  army,, and is carrying out a similar  plan in Chile.  That Germany sought to gain u  foothold in Hayto through control of  the customs and the establishment of  a naval bnse ut Mole St. Nicholas.  That Germany practically controls  the island of St. Thomas by lease from  Denmark and has established there a  base of great strategic value, particularly because of its proximity to Porto  Rico and the Panama Canal.     *  The commitree also haa documentary  evidence indicating that, although the  European war has interrupted the  prosecution of these plans Germany  plans to resume the efforts to participate in tho affairs of the western hemisphere as soon as pence shall be restored.  The Blind Man and His Son  In striking contrast to the "Chant  of Hate" by Herr Lissauer, thc German, are the beautiful lines of Emilo  C'ammuerts, tho Belgian poet, under  the heading "The Blind Man and His  Son" translated by Lord Curzon.  Tho    poem represents two wnunded  Belgian soldiers���father and son���who  found themselves iu England with   tho  great rush of refugees.  "The distant boom of angry guns  No longer fills my ear;  Oh, whither have we fled, my son?  Tel'l me, that I may hear."  . "Father, we nre in England!"  "No more I hear the stormy wind  Amid the rigging roar;  I feel beneath my tottoring feet  The firm ground of the shore.  In this the end of all our woes���  Shall w* not suffer more?"

The rest  pxe commercial,- jouiy^listic or official.  Russia's Inexhaustibility  The simple fact is that Russia oan-  not be beaten. She is not* vulnerable  as a highly complex industrial state  is vulnerable. She cannot l>e wounded  in any vital point, and she has an  inexhaustible supply of men. During  the RuaBQ'Jgpanese war millions melted in the Manchurian wastes. But Rub-  siu hardly felt the loss. Within five  years thc Russian army was reconstituted. A country whioh has an annual  increase in her population of over  three millions can never bo depleted.  And, ns she cannot be depleted/ she  cannot be started. Her supplies of  food are even greater than her supplies of men- The Russian black earth  is one of the granaries of ths World.  Germany has to pay a dear price for  every victory achieved over the Russian armies, and any German victory  must needs be barren of decisive results. Eveh if Germany does follow  up her victory, she is driven on by  her very successes to disaster, and her  triumphant armies aro swallowc i by  tho boundless Russian desert.  So far as conditions have changes  si.ice Napoleon, they have changed for  the worse. They have only increased  the dangers of the victor. The Russians havo the same grim allies which  they had against Napoleon; hunger  and cold and distance. The most auspicious event whicn could happen to  the allies would be von HindcnSerg's.  march against Petrograd or Moscow.  He will find Borodino and the Berezina on the way. The Russian plains  will dovour.tho German hosts ns they  devoured tho Grand Army in 1612. In  a few weeks winter will set in, .ind  an infinite shroud of snow and Iv will  spread and cover the invading &ri iirs  which have been lured to their doom..  -O-  WHITK PHOSPHORUS MATCHES  Hon. T. W. Crothers, minister of  labor, has given notice of ft bill to  amend the White Phosphorus Matches  Act. The amendment will extend for  six months from Jan. 1st of this year  the time allowed during which the  white phosphorus matches may be  sold, and for une year the time during  which they may be legally used. Under the legislation* of the session of  1913 tho manufacture of white phosphorus matches was prohibited after  January 1st, 1915, and their sale after  January 1st, 1916. It was found  that considerable seocks of those  matches .were still on hand at the .beginning of this year, and it was deemed reasonable to allow merchants a  longer period of six months to get rid  of their stocks.

D1VINBJG ROD FOR LOST SHKLLS  An odd problem, which will be en-.  countered all through the fighting territory after the war, is that of guarding against the exploding of shells  which buried themselves in the ground  without having exploded.  In the seobion 61 Evance along the  Marno, where the fighting was sharp  early in the war and from which the  Germans wore driven, tho peasant farmers have already found this danger-  to be real. A plowman at any moment may strike a shell that will explode tfith sufficient force so kill him  and his team.  Various solutions have boi-n suggested, but the most promising is one  worked out by a French scientist and  considered by lhe Academy of Science  The plan is to go nil ovor the farms  with an electrical instrument that will  give warning wh>n a mass of metal  is near. Rome .modifications of it were  adopted by the French scientist to fit  it for field us , .��� ml his apparatus; requires the services of two men.  In practical tests on iho old battlefields he found th-it it is possible f0r  two men to explore nn nn-p thoroughly in about ope hour, and locate overy  buried shell near enough to the Bur-  face to do any harm.

Tlie German Schoolboy  The aim of every aotydlfr boy in Germany, aays Mr. Ernest C. Pulbrook in  "Young England,"���perhaps it would  be more accurate to say the aim of  every boy'a parents���"is to reach the  class which will allow him to servo  only one year with the colors. Unless  he be destined for one of the' professions���-which means graduating from  the top class to tho university or technical college���his chief object is to obtain a certificate of one year's service  before he reaches the age limit, and  ishould he seem likely to fail in i\v  at one school he will jnove to another,  for in spite of the cast-iron system  there is a good deal of latitude.  "When he enters tho school the boy  receives ia little booklet of rules which  must be skn 1<1 by him ani his parents  or the people with whom.he lodges, if  ho goes to school in a town in which  he does not live. This book has to  be inspected by his class master from  time to time, usually at the beginning  of tt term and should it b�� lost a new  one has to be purchased.  "The rules regulate Mb goings" out  and comings in, his conduct to hit?  masters and those put in authority  ovor him, tho age at which he is allowed to smoke and the places in  whicn this is allowed, the restaurants  he may visit and under what conditions, and ths general order of his daily life. His guardian is held responsible for the proper observance of these  rules out of school hours. Should he  desire to visit .a concert or a theatre  which will keep him beyond the stipulated hours, he must take a written  request to his master, who countersigns it if he has no objections.   O  ���  BIG GUNS AND THE RANGE OF  SHELLS  ENGINE WITH TWO  PISTONS FOB  EACH CYLINDER  A simple and practical solution of  the problem of making an inttrnal-  cojnbustion engine in which the pistons are forced apart by the explosion  of the gas between them has been  worked out in England. This engine  necessarily has two cylinders with piston rods working Bide by side on one  shaft. Thc cylinders have open ends  and the, top piston in each cylinder is  connected by a diagonal rod with the  bottom piston in the other cylinder.  With this arrangement the cylinders  work alternately, and the power is  transmitted equally to both crank  arms when tho pistons ha either cylinder are thrust apart by an explosion.  The obliquity of the diagonal rodd is  small, being less than the maximum  obliquity of the rods that connect the  piston rods with the crank arms. The  engine is of the two-cycle typo, and  eaofe crank arm therefore receives two  impulses to each revolution of the  shaft.

There are  also several conditions liable to variations durmg the time of flight of the  shell which must be taken into account, for the resistance which the  shall meets with depends upon the atmosphere density at the time of firing,  the shape of the shell nose, the altitude which the shell reaches with consequent decrease of air density, and  the force and direction of the wind.  Increase of decrease of range due to  alterations of weight and shape of the  shell can be predetermined and corrected for before the shell is issued for  firing, but variations in barometer  reading and wind must be corrected  for at the time of firing.

Accompanying thy nose were also some  bullets and a piece of the copper  driving belt.  An alarm of fire Wa8 turned in on  Tuesday evening about 8 o'clock and  roused many good people from the  easy chairs into which they had settled f0r the evening.

A  wire more than two miles long descends from the gondola of the Zeppelin  At the end of the wire dangles a "foster of bombs filled with high explosives. Scouting ahead of the fleet the  Zeppelin will drop the explosive bait  into the water and drag it at a high  rate of speed. When the bombs come  in contact with the side of a warship, the commander two miles above  will electrically oxplode the charge.  The bomb dragging fleet is reported to  have practiced much during the past  fortnight. The new Zeppelins apparently are maintaining a speed of one  hundred mites an hour. .  "Floe Feathers"  "Fine Feathers" which appears ttt  the Opera House one night only, Wednesday, April Bth teaches a' lesson  that has seldom been touched upon  by the average economists. It not  only teaches the folly and far-reaching  results of extravagance, but brings  out very forcibly this moral: "When  lovely woman stoops to folly, she always comes off second best." Here  man, if he makes a fool of himself,���  suffers -perhaps but usually manages  to "wriggle but" of his trouble without fatally hurting himself. Woman always pays���man, sometimes.  A part of the story is as follows:  Bob Reynolds, u cement expert, living  with his wife in a New York suburb,  is trying to pay for his home apd  keep his wife on 825 a week. Temptation to oheat comes in the way of tho  young couple, hi reward for which tho  wife can escape the bitterness of a life  of constant denials. There are no  classy people where she lives, and sho  longs for the environment of society  and society people. She persuades her  husband to accept a bribe and pass on  an infeHor grade of cement for a great  dam then in course of construction.  She wanted "Fine Feathers" and got  them. Things went well for a while;  the pair were able to satisfy their social ambitions, to the loss of their  love for one another, as is usually the  oase whero too much time is spent  in the company of others. Then came  the crash, which is portrayed in one  of the most dramatio scenes ever penned. This attraction is presented- by  an all star cast that was secured by  the United Producing Company at a  great expense. Tho production is guaranteed in every detail, and will provo  to be the dramatic treat of tho season:��� Tho piece is also, replete with a  world of excellent comedy,, which is  provided by three' characters, all of  them typeB that will aesure audience:)  many a hearty laugh."

WHERE THE PICTURE    SHOW   IS  BOYCOTTED  a -  The ubiquity of the moving picture  is such that it is almost a surprise to  tearn of any part of the world where  the cinematograph show has failed to  "take." One suoh place, however, says  "The Amateur Photographer" is in  China. Attempts have been made to  develop the idea in that yellow soil  but up to the present they have aot  been remunerative. The difficulty lies  in the objection on the part of the  Chinese to participate in the making  of films of scenes .and customs of their  own country, while foreign elements  are viewed with oven greater suspicion.  Ab a result there are said to be fewer  cinematograph shows in all China and  Macao. The cinematograph has also  faired to make headway in certain sections of India. In the seaport town  of Karachi there is only one cinsmato-  graph show, and the admission to a  reserved seat is two rupees, (2e. 8d).

Tho result -ia that he has always a very  friendly greeting for mo when ho meets  me, Besides th* Gmeial of tho divi  sion there are four brigade generals,  whom I have met because they all  want some engineering jobs done and  I happened to be" nearest R.

Then more men went  out with barbed wire which they twined and twisted round the iron post-;,  which were scre'wed "n on a strip of  ground 20 feet wide along the whole  front of the new trench. At eleven  o'clock 1 led our company out of our  trench's and spread them out alon:  I lie line, which was 300 yards nearer  the Germans lhan the old trench was,  and we commenced digging aa hard as  we possibly could so ns to got Some  kmd of a hole to drop in if the Germans happened to hear us and turn a  searchlight on ns.

Sown after wo started digging I saw a  manl) approaching from the German  lines and promptly levelled my pistol  at him asking who ho was. He did  not answer nnd T wns just going to .  shoot when a Major of R.E. told me  he was one of our patrols. We had  previously been told that all patrols  had been called in so that chap nearly got potted through not obeying or- I  dcra. Bye and bye the German bullets came -sweeping alofi] our line but  thoy wore not aim d ' cause it was  too dark to see and the shots either  hit the ground in front of us or eiso  went well over our heads. Still it  was sotne-vhat alarming to hear tho  bullets go "phut" into the earth close !  to 0r perhaps glan -e and Ly ofT making a noise like a hive of hornets  that has been stirred up. Every now  nnd then the Germans would begin  shooting oil n niali'ni gun which  made a noise like a motorcycle with  the exhaust open.  We officers have to ��� keep walking  about In front of the trehch to sec  that the parapet was (r()pnTv built Up  and made- at least ." feet thick because it takes ."> Let of clay to stop  a  bullet  safely.  The men WOrlttd spl, ndidly and show  ed no fear ()f danger so that wo got  the parapet built and hud tho trench  nimostdeep Enough before dawn, While  we had been w(,rk'nr on th'g advanced  trench a lot of the infantry men had  been busily engaged digging a communication trcn h from us to the old  front line so that when it got too  light for work any longer we werft fortunately able to walk -4own their  trench and Keep out of the German's  sight and it was a very trood thing  to0, because we had hardly started to  move before our night's work was discovered and the Germans sont a regular hail of bullets at it but we were  well down in the.-trench so we all got  i!��'uv safely which was hardly to be  hoped for when one considers how'  close we Were to the-enemy and how  badly exposed to their fire.
