 VOL VI. NO. 39.  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. AUGUST 20th, 1914.  Enffiusiostic Send-off Was  Nearly Two Hundred Men of B.C.

Ever ainoe the ordsr arrived for thc  mobilization of the two local companies ol militia, the "D" Squadron  of ths 30th 1). C, Horse and the "��"  Oompany 102nd Regiment; Rocky  Mountain Bangers, the oity has worn  quite a military air. Uniformed' soldiers were to be seen in groups along  the sidewalks at all hours, except  when drills were proceeding, and thu  martial spirit seemed to be everywhere  in evidenoe. Capt. Temple of the B.  C. Horse and Uaptj. Rose oi the K.M.  R. were besieged with applicants for  enlistment, and both companies were  recruited well above their full war  strength within a few days. The subsequent odiling out of those who failed to pass the nwdioal test, or who  oould not qualify for various other  - reasons, caused much disappointment,  So keen was tne enthusiasm to obey  the call to arms.  ...As nothing else oould have done  the calling out_. of the looal boys,  though it might not be to the aotual  scene of the terrible hostilities in tho  old world, brought home to everyone  the grim reality 0f the war,> and con  the most peacefully inclined oould not  help feeling some stirring of martial  ardor, as he saw so many' of Kelow-  tense ol thoir country! In all some  187 have answered the summons, th'  same trumpet calf which has sounded  jn every part ol Britain's world-wide  Empire and has met with response on  every hand.  There was not hull enough room on  thc Kelowna wharf, largo as it is, to  accommodate' the crowd which assembled at boat time Monday morning to  give a royal seridoff to the Kooky  Mountain Hungers, who were the firs:  to depart, having been called to head  quarters at Kamloops. Headed by thc  city banii playing patriotio airs, and  led by Capt. Rose, the bdys were  cheered to' the echo as they formed,, in  line and marched on board tho "Sica-  pious," and many were tho good wishes which were shouted after them as  the boat pulled out, the strains of the  band being drowned ir, the deafening  blasts of the steamer's syren as it  gave the usual salute.  On Tuesday morning a similar enthusiastic sendoif was given the B.C.  Horse, which body left for headquarters at Vernon, there to await further orders.  The exact duty whioh awaits the  two companies was not made known,  but it wns generally understood   that  (Continued on Para 7.1  Hegnlar Meeting of  City Couocii  At the regular meeting af'.tne  counoil last Friday morning Mr. R.  Duncan applied to the council for a  reduction of She city's fee lor a thea  tre license. He informed the counoil  that under the aot .passed at the last  session of the provincial legislature, he  waa required to pay a fee of f 100 pe  annum to the province; he contended  that an additional fee at 160 per yea?  to ths oity lioenoe made a very heavy!  tax upon his business.  To this request Mr. Dunoan was ad  vised that the council would give consideration.  In discussing the question of trade  licenses later, Mayor Jones suggested  that tke question of the provincial  government's fee ior a lioenoe under  the "Moving Pictures Aot, 1814,"  should be submitted id the Union ol  B, C, municipalities at tbe next eon,  vention, as the government's aotion  might tend to reduce munioipal revenue.  The olerk was instructed to ascertain the amount oi lioenoe fees charged ior banks and theatres in Kamloops, Revelstoke and Vernon.  A letter was read from the Attorney  General, asking if the oity oounoil bad  any objection to the Crown releasing  to the C.P.R. it* rights to the piece  of land lying between Water street  and the lake near tbe C.P.R. oat  slip.

Bulman announced that their grant  ol {SO toward the expenses of a dis  trict exhibit of fruit has been increased to $150. This substantial sum  should go a long way toward the cost  of a display from Kelowna, and tlio  sending down of an culiihit Irom ncre  is certainly worth serious consideration, especially so io view ol the earnest efforts which are being mado to  capture the Vanoouver market lor  Okanagan fruit. Of course immediate  action would be necessary as tbe date  of the exhibition is fixed for Septcm  ber 3rd to 13th.

Annual Irrigation Convention  Meets Is Week at Penticton  Large Gathering Deals With Important Agricultural Problems  ���Dr. Dickson, Kelowna, is Made First Vice President  PENTIOTON,     August    20.���      Ir, than you can afford to lose.   Then if  of the European crisis, whioh at pres  ent is diverting public attention (rom  industrial undertakings, the Eighth  Annual Irrigation Convention ol the  Western Canada Irrigation Association, which concluded hero yesterday  proved to be in point of instructive value, the most suoeessful conven  tion sineo thc inception of the association.  The holding of the convention here,  and its value as a representative gathering of practically every distriot o'  Western Canada where agriculture, oi  horticulture is on the_ basis of a commercial industry, is a praotieal recognizance of the great potential  wealth possessed by the districts o'  tho southern Okanagan. In almost  every instance the delegates were visiting tho valley for thi first time,  and they were amazed at tho evident  productiveness of the. soil, and tho  great apparent possibilities that exist  for the farmer.  Probably in tho history ol the pro-  vinoo no lnrgor gathering ol oxiicrts in  all branches of soil and animnl husbandry, have ever mot before. Whilo  ths matter read nnd discussed before  the dulegalcs was of .necessity vol-  uninous, its great practical worth,  nnd value to horticulturist and agriculturist can on,}' lie gauged by the  timo end .money spent in its eumpila-  Hon, nnd by knowledge glonnod nt  lirst hand by governments, corpora-  linns and farmers themselves.  PLEA FOR MIXED FARMING  "The speech delivered by Mr. C. L.  Smith, agriculturist for thc O.W.R. d  N. railway of Portland, Oregon, was  one of the features ol the first days  session. Mr. Smith speaking (rom  over twenty-eight years experience in  his position, disoussed the congenial  topio of "Diversified Farming," making a strong plea for thc making ol  homos, whieh ho considered wero   the  lure.  "Tho man" declared tho speaker,  "who moroly lives on tho land to make  money, and who spcrializos it to death  generally proves a special failure, for  the reason that all his eggs are in  one basket. My advice to the farmer  la:   Endeavor to make a home,   and  saame'  one thing on vour farm is  failure, you have other resources    to  fall back on."  Tracing, the history of aucesjsfui  farming, Mr. Smith pointed out that  in order to practice economy and to  utilize every available means of benefiting the land which was producing  crops, it was necessary to put something baok into the soil as well as  take something out.- This oould oaly  bo successfully accomplished by keeping stock.  "The cow, tho hon, the pig," he declared are the original mortgage lift-  era. They beat any loan company on  the fare of the earth."  HON. PRICE ELLISON  Hon Price Ellison, in the course of  an address of welcome, during whioh  lie greeted the delegates on the behalf  of the perinior and other members of  tho government referred to tho Ire-  inendpus amount of money that is  yearly being paid for imports. Last  year S20,000,000 had been spent lor  foodstuffs, tbo greater portion ol  whieh it would havo been possible to  raise in the provinoe. The distribution of this amount of money would  create a vory prosperous oondition in  R. C, could suoh bs accomplished.  He considered it a discredit to ths agricultural industry, that such a oondition should obtain.  Dr. Frank Shutt, of the Dominion  Kuporlmentel Farm at Ottawa re'er  red to the efforts af the government  lo place the (arming, industry on a  practical scientific basis in the provinces of Canada. He referred to  former visits to British Columbia and  of his faith in tbo great potentialities  which the agricultural field held lor  ths settlers hern. He looked for a  time when the products ot this industry, would at least be able to satisfy  the demand created provinoially.  The address of welcome tendered on  tho first day by Reeve R. S. Conklin  was a sparkling example of wit, and  hia jolly welcome to the delegates,  their wives and tho ��� large crowd ol  visitors, oast an atmosphere ol good  will and humor about tbe early pro  oeedings of tho convention, that mads  tho morning session on Monday,' par-  tioularly enjoyable.

Secretary Runkins report indicated  that about $7,<HM) worth of advertising had been secured for Penticton  through the convention being; held  here.  Hon. Geo. Harcourt, deputy minister  of agriculture for Alberta felt greatly  pleased with the possibilities of the  country, which he "Was seeing for the  first time. Ho hoped that in time it  would be possible to grow fruit on  thc prairies, that is the larger vatic  ties, as the smaller ones already flourish.  Concurring with thc remarks of Mr.  C, h. Smith in respect of farming and  stock raising combined, the spiifcet  pointc.l out that the prairie farmer!  were just coming to the knowledge  that it was impossible to make money  out of wheat alone. They could not  run their farms by growing grain, and  buy all other farm products at Tnrgf  prices in the markets. Three trops of  nlfalfn were being grown yearly at  l.ethbridge, and herds of cattle woro  making their appearance on farms  where formerly there were none.  Mr.    Walter    Huckvalc, representing  the Cypress    Hills, Water Users Abso*  ciation, anticipated the securing of   a  lot of useful instruction from the movent ion.    He stated that in the    Cypress Hills district, the farmers     devoted their energies to growing fodder  almost entirely.     This year had been  disastrous to some extent owing    to  the lack of    moisture, as thc    creeks  from which the irrigation water    was  secured in that district, had only an  intermittent flow.  Mr. E.  L. Richardson, manager    or  the Calgary Exhibition explained   that  free space and free admission to    exhibitors would be features of     many  inducements offered to tnoso attending  the exhibition nest   month.  Arthur Hooker, secretary of the In  ternational Irrigation Associations  Oregon, gave a resume of the history  of the organization since its begin-  ning in 1916, and extended a cordial  invitation for all delegates to visit  the next convention at Calgary on  on Oct. 5th to Oth  Mr. J.H, McCoy who was announced ns president of the Aquatic Association invited the delegates *to tho  regatta on Tuesday afternoon,  The business of the morning session  session on Monday was concluded by  thc appointment of a committee on  credentials composed of the following  members: Messrs Iv Foley Bennett,  chairman, W. .1. Lloyd, l.ethbridge;  H. Pegler, Dassano. A committee was  also appointed on resolutions, com'  prising Messrs. Wm. 1'earce, Calgary;  Dr. C. W. Dickson, Kelowna; Walter  Muck vale, Medicine Hat; .1. ('. Dq-  frcsne, Penticton; and Mr. A. Chamberlain, Kamloops. ���*  '     MONDAY AFTERNOON  Monday alternoon's session provided  a genuine treat in the form of lectures by Mr, 8. C. Porter of the Department of the Interior at Calgary,  who spoke on tho practice and operation of irrigation works. Mr. Porter  gave an interesting illustration of the  tremendous waste of water in Irriga*  tion- It was common ho stated for  only about 28 per cent of thc water  taken in at the head gate of the system to be utilized in actually nourishing plant life. Of tho balance about  28 per cent was lost in evaporation*  run off and percolation, 19 per cent in  laterals, and 25 per cent loss in the  main canal.  Comparing the advantage of irrigating grain crops, Mr Porter Hlnslrat  cd with diagrams how crops planted  at the same time, but irrigated at  different periods, developed.

Mr. L. 0. Armstrong, publicity lecturer for the C.P.R. concluded the ef-  tenvoon session with a most entertaining talk in which he spoke of his  efforts on behalf of the C.P.R, colonization department, during lecture  tours in the United States, and emphasized the growing realization that  the "back to the land movement" was  tho only solution for the cost of living problems, and the only hope for  the future prosperity of the cities,  which were naturally dependent upon  the supporting countries behind them  for wealth that was created by labor,  not the unearned increment of a mere  real estate transaction. Mr. Armstrong's account of his battles with  real estate men were most entertaining, and his descriptive narratvc of  the country nnd conditions in othej  parts were much appreciated.  CITIES DEPENDENT ITON* THE  FARMER  Dr. (1. J. Rutherford, superintendent  of agriculture and animal husbandry  for the O.P.R. spoke to the largest  crowd of the convention on the evening af Monday, taking as his subject  ''The inter dependence of farm and  oity."  Mr. Rutherford's forceful handling of  the subject, and fearless dealing with  moneyed real estate interests, to which  he attributes the present fin uu-i.d  tightness, was typical of his chapter-  istic straightforwardness.  The main points touched upp*>) by  Mr. Rutherford were the facts that the  city being but tho product of the  labors of farmers, was dependent upon  tho farm for support, in a far greater  for tho benefit ol the *owu n> creating a more prosperous condition of  affairs. Within the last year the 0.  P.R., have placed witn tanners ovor  6000 head of cows and hei'srs. mv. a  large number of hogs, those lo tWsc  settling on the company's land. Sold  on easy terms of oredit the settlers  wore thoroughly appreciative of thf  efforts made in their behalf, and as  a consequence were arriving at a V. *���,  tor state of happiness and comfort.  Xot only financial assistance but  the breaking down of the barrier po-  ciatly which exists betwetn the city  and country dwellers was .** matter  emphasized by Dr. Rutherford. Co op  oration was the keynote of the situation, as the city owed its prosperity  to the farm it was up to it to give  the products of the farm the benefit  of its markets. Germany's interior development had been attained by a perfection of husbandry, and the harmonizing of marketing*| and producing machinery. The Danes had made their  country one of the richest in the  world by this method of self help,  and the prosperous condition of that  country today.  In concluding, with a quotation, Dr.  Rutherford reiterated the famous line  from Ciullivers travels, that the man  who made two blades of grass or two  ears of coi n grow whore < ne was  before, would accomplish more good  for man than nil the politicians in  the world put together.  Frank Adams in charge of the investigations now being promoted at  tho University       of        California  gave an illustrated lecture on  Monday night on Orchard Irrigation methods in California- In  this regard Mr. Adams displayed a  iatniliarjty with the practical prablems  confronting those who seek to fertilize  *****  :- p  THURSDAY, AUGUST 20, 1914  land and water, and while it is    im-  degree than the farmer ^as^ntat JT1* to   pri"l( hi" **+   *�� "^  Farmers    had mado lh"* IU�� ���mP1��^�����9- B is however  upon the    city    necessary, railways and banks, gr?at  industrial, financial and commercial  .enterprises, which were now doprirfent  upon the farms.

Scott, deputy minister of  agriculture, by winning second in tho  plunge, and getting into the finals in  the tilting with Mr. Charles Sorby of  Summerland, distinguished himself.  Don H. Dark, in charge of the U. S.  government investigations at Boise,  Idaho, spoke on the subject of, 'The  problem which confronts the irrigator  at the session on Wednesday afternoon. The problem, he stated was  divided into three parts, the first being care io selection of land, second,  financing over the lean years between  planting and production, and thirdly,  the marketing of the produce,  Mr. Dark also reviewed the importance of taking local climatic and  crop maturing conditions into consideration in planting any particular variety of fruit or other produce. Depth  of soils, government* assistance, and  co-operative marketing were other subjects taken up by Mr. Bark in his  efficient discourse.  C. B, Whistler, thc last Bpeaker of  the convention, who is the managing  editor of the Pacific Fruit and Produce Distributor, Portland, Oregon.  spoke on Apple Growing, care nnd culture of apples and other fruits, all  the contributory subjects from blossoming to marketing time, being included by the speaker, who is considered one of the most practical men in  nil departments of tho fruit business,  in Oregon.  The evils of dealing through who'o-  salers and jobbers wns a phase of  marketing organizations, nnd individuals in some places.to be unrepresented in the places to which they were  shipping their fruit. This allowed the  consign e to report that shipments  had arrived in-poor condition. As a  consequence the producer was done  out of a considerable sum of money.  These cases were traced tn their source  by representatives of the shipping concern* in the western States, and it  has been fotnd that the charges o'  bad condition, laid by c-nsigm.es had  been found in nine eases out of ten to  be absolutely groundless.  The success of co-operative organizations he declared was entirely duo to  lho management, but an these organ  ization* existed for thc purpose of  eliminating all obstacles existing between consumer and producer, it was  toward that end that all co-operative  organizations shouM work.

Public Meeting to  Discuss Creamery  Chief Provincial Dairy Instructor  Addresses Meeting  The publio meeting oalled fay the Kelowna Farmers' Institute for the purpose ol discussing the proposal to establish a creamery lor the distriot  was helh last Friday afternoon, when  Mr. H. Rive, the . chief dairy instructor under the pravincial government  came down at the request of'the directors to deliver an    address.  There was an audienoe of about ISO  present when the meeting opened. Mr,  M. Hereron as president of the Institute occupying the chair. Mr. Herer >n  informed the meeting that he aad re  oeived letters from Mr. J. V. Terry,  provincial poultry instructor and from  Mr. Hayward, manager of the Cow-  ichan creamery, regretting their inability to be present.  Mr. Rive in his remarks enumerst-  ed first some of the different points  whioh would have to be taken into  consideration before embarking upon,  the project of a local creamery. First  it had to be ascertained if the oountry was able to grow fodder for dairy  cattle in sufficient quantities and at  a profitable rate. Secondly, waB there  sufficient demand for the produots of  such an institution? Third, were  the returns from butter and creamery'  products quick and sufficient to enable  it to be run at a profit? Fourth,  would it bo beneficial to the land in  the distriot to develop the dairy industry. If these questions oould be  answered satisfactorily, said Mr. Rive  then by all means go ahead with the  scheme.  He gave some interesting figures as  to the carefully ascertained average  cost ol feeding dairy oattle, and ad.  vocated before everything the keeping  of good oows. This oould only be  done by keeping records' of milk production and weeding out those animals  whioh failed to give adequate return  for their keep. Realizing the importance of record keeping he continued,  the government had undertaken to issue free reoord cards to any farmer  who would use them.  Coming to the cost of a creamery,  Mr. Rive said that a building large  enough for the purpose could be erected Ior 81200 to 12600. The equipment  necessary for a "oolleoting creamery"  i.e., one which reoeived the already  separated cream from the farmers,  would cost anything from 81600 to  82500. The extra equipment necessary  to add separating appliances would  be from 870O to 11000.  To undertake such a creamery, he  sard a capital of about 15000 would  be required, with 83000 additional for  running expenses.  The running expenses neednot be  very great. A good export jutter-  maker could be got for about ,'90 per  month and there would need to be a  manager .and a secretary.  A question was asked as 'o what  was the minimum number ot cows  with, whioh a creamery oould be run,  and what was the radius over which a  creamery could profitably operate.  Mr. Rive said that the number ol  cowb necessary depended altogether upon their quality as milk nnd bu.ter  fat producers. With herds of first-  class milkers as low _ as 250 land  would suffice, but taking the average  good cow, something like four to  five hundred would be required. The  radius of operation also depended  largely upon conditions. The further  away a farmer was from the creamery  the more cream Vould he have to produce in order to make the hauling ol  it worth while. For practical purposes however, it might be safe to  take ten to fifteen miles as a field  of operation.  In discussing lho financing of ths  proposition an interesting point was  rais?d by Dr. W. W. .Tones, who saM  there might be some difficulty In {retting the government to give any grant  or subsidy owing to its avowed policy  of not supporting more than ons undertaking of the same kind in a district. He pointed out that the charter ol the Kelowna Growers' Exchange  which institution was supported by  government funds, inducted the power  to establish a creamery in connection  with its business.  In that oase said Mr. Rive it would  be neosssary either to get the Growers  Exchange to tako up the project  themselves or ta have all roferonoo to  a oreamery erased from their charter.  Mr. W. D. Brent, manager ol the  Growers' Exchange, who was present  at the meeting, said he believed that  it it could be flown that a creamery  was for the good of the district there  was no reason why the Growers' Exchange should not take It up, and hs  thought they would be quite willing  There' would bo Indeed many advantages about handling a creamery in  connection with their other business,  as the same offioe staff would do, thus  offeotrng a considerable saving ,1a running expenses.   If doslred tho two busi  nesses could be kept entirely separate  as regards capital and bookkeeping,  fend still use the same offioe staff.  Several of the local meronants wer.  at the meeting and expressed themselves as heartily in favor ol a looal'  oreamery, and willing to handle a  good local product any time in preference to imported butter.  Mr. A. Patterson described a similar  undertaking with which he was. familiar back east where the farmers th?m-  selves had got together and put up  the money themselves for a oreamery  on an even smaller scale than was proposed, here, and the success they had  met with had made them thankful  ever since that they had taken the  step.  After the publio meeting the directors ol the Farmers' Institute met together and decided at once to thoroughly canvass tho distriot and accumulate accurate information as to  |he number of cows, and the amount  of cream which would be available for  a oreamery.  Mr. Rive left with the Institute sets  of plans and specifications of various  types of buildings and equipment  which had been prepared at Ottawa,  and these oan be seen by applying.to  the secretary, Mr. B. G. Meyrick. H'  also promised every assistance to the  undertaking, and was prepared to pay  a personal visit at any time if necessary.-  SS  DEVILISH ENGINES OF MODiUN  WARFARE  An unusual and significant activity  in the fashioning of new devices for  naval war which may surprise H. G.  ells, and would stagger Jules Verne  could he return to life is disclosed on  almost every page of the Naval, Annual for 1914, just published. Of all  the new weapons desoribed none is  more devilish than the Leon torpedo  mine, whioh is being manufactured by  a British firm. This engine is so constructed that it can'be s-t to hovei  between any depths below the surface  fiat may be desired. When placed in  the water it has a slight negative  buoyancy and sinks until automatically a propeller is brought into action  which drives il upward again. It can  bo used in the open sea by any type  of ship, or in the case of tidal harbors it could be released by a vessel  outside so as to make its way with  the tide into the anchorage, and. perhaps destroy shipping there.

At the outset gunpowder  was known as Greek fire, and was  merely used to throw at the enomy  like a modern hand grenade, but it  wns made almost exactly aa it is to  day.  A most interesting fact is that its  composition was kept a close secret  by the Turks for from five to six hun  Bred years; but for this tho course  of history might have been very differ  ent.  But this primitive pyrotechnic was a  feeble weapon compared'with it* mod'  Hern descendants, the high explosives.  It was not until 1845 that gunpowder  met its first serious rival in gunoot-  ton, or nitro-oellulose, a substance  which soon came into general uuc)  and has remained a constituent of Iho  majority of smokeless powders ever  since. When gunpowder ia oxpl vied it  produces a number of solid ajrodueta  which are seen as smoke, but guncot-  ton affords only colorless gases .whioh  are. invisible. Cellulose is the organic  matter which forms the basis of tall  vegetable products and of all substances made from them (wood, oot-  ton, silk, paper, etc.) a  To convert them into explosives thoy  are treated with a mixture of nitrio  and sulphuric acids, technically known  as "nitro-abid." The process is simple, but, nevertheless, extraordinary  care has to be taken, otherwise the  finished product- becomes a greater  source of danger to those who use it  than to those against whom its   use  intended! The terrible disaster which  befel tho French navy in 1911 will ba  in the memory    of all.    One of    her  proudest and mightiest engines ol war  tho battleship La Liberte, was     completely wrecked with the lose ol  many  hindred^ lives, owing to the spontane-  I nus explosion of some nitro-celjilose.  I    So much attention has now     been  H.'voted to  the  manufacture of    this  I high explosive that not only can   its  \ serviceable qualities    bs relied    upon  ���Her    twelve to fifteen years' storage  but deteriorated material oan be worked up again, and made as good     as  now at a very small cost.   Guncotton  and allied substances are prepared for  service in various shapes and forms-  tubes, cords, tablets, discs, and rods-  each form exerting its own particular  influence upon the rate of combustion  of tho explosive.  Very soon afte-r tho advent of gun-  otton, nitroglycerins and dynamite  made their appearance. The former i*  made by treating ordinary glycerine, ai  by-product of soap manufacture, with;  "nitro-acid" and aB it is a liquid.  nd therefore not well suited for an  a Niplosive, it is mixed with a fine san-  dy material, ''infusorial earth" (the:  remains of misoroscopic organisms).,  nnd in this way dynamite comes into  being.  One of the most powerful of all high  explosives is made by saturating gun-  cotton with nitroglycerine. It is  known as blasting gelatin and, like dynamite, is ohiefly used for peaceful, industrial purposes, suoh as mining an 1  tunnel driving.  A strong impulse to tho discovery ol'  explosives more powerful than gunpowder was afforded by the theoretical conclusion thnt better results  vould be obtained by using projectiles,  of smaller diameter ifthcy could bsi  propelled with greater velqoity. Accordingly, we find melinite discovered  by the French, lyddite by the English  nnd shimose by the Japanese. But alii  tlaeso explosives are essentially the  rame, consisting of picric ac'd, a red:  i olid made from carbolic acid, the disinfectant.  The most up-to-date explosive for  warlike purposes is trinitrotonol,  which has very rapidly come into  general use. This material (whosa  name might be mistaken for that of  Welsh village) is asm known in different countries as trotyl, tolite, trllite,  trinol, tritonn, tritol and also mora  'amiliarly as TNT. It has many ad-  V .rat agon over its predecessors. It is  perfectly stable, does not absorb water, and hence is squally effective under  or above water. It is not sensitive to  blow, shock or fire, and is far more  powerful in its effects. At the present  lime, guncotton, lyddite, and TNT are  all used for filling shells, and are tech  nically known as "bursters."  The "burster" is placed in the cm-  . I rnl portion of tho shell nnd in order  that St may withstand lhe shock af  Impact on armorplatc. Tho outer casing of the shell is very thick and  made of specially hardened sled, al  'oyed with one or other ol the metal*  t'ickel, chromium or vanadium.

The festivities, however, were but local, and suggested little of the international significance of the event.

Belgium contains 11,37ft  square miles while there are 16,937  square miles on our own island. The  land is fertile with no high mountains  It oontains tho beautiful and famous  forests of Ardennes, and many r'.oh  mines of coal, iron and other minerals.  In this territory thero are nearly as  many people as there are in the whole  of 'Canada. Its cities are storehouses  and workshops, and many of its buil  dings are old. and very beautilul;  among theso is Antwerp Cathedral.

They are wonderful creatures  tall and almost over-muscled from  from the outdoor work they havs  done for generations. They are often  very beautiful. And always they are  afiro with patriotism."  CANADA'S MILITARY HEADQUARTERS  Valoartier, the base ol militory operations for Canada is admirably situated for the uurpose being about 17  miles northeast of Quebec with the  Quebec and Lake St. John Railwa;  running through it. It is therefore  possible, in a very short spaoe of time  to rush men to either the defence of  Quebec, or to vessels of conveyance to  the immediate centro ol tho great  struggle in Europe. Being in an agricultural district there is adequate provision for food and forage, and transportation of either men or provisions  should bs easy. A groat deal ol hay  Is grown as well as oats, tho former  of a much better quality than in some  other parts of Quebec. Aoother important lector is that the experienced  men at the citadel are within touch  of the oamp. The roads in the vicinity are good, and even though it is  a little hilly, a march (��� Quebec would  (��� occupy but a few hours. Strategically  it commands the Northeast shore ol  the St, Lawrence immediately below  the oity, and will no doubt bs equipped with long range guns that will  materially help In the defonoo of our  waterway.

Aeroplanes to Clear  Sea of Mines  The problem of dealing with submarine mines is one of the most serious  which confronts the navy. The knowledge that mines have been,placed in  any waters, and may blow up, at  Ihe slightest contact with a ship, hampers the movements of both the navy  and commercial shipping.  The dostruotion of the . Amphion  through contact with g submarine  mine brings to mind a suggestion. for  the use of aeroplanes in war which  has recently received some contridera-  ion aniaang both airmen and military  authorities.  It has been tne custom heretofore  to render submarine mines harmless  by permitting condemned hulks to  ���Irift into thorn- and explode them,  ho practicability of such a precaution, however has very decided limitations. At the Ik'sI, it ia an exceedingly slow, costly, imperfect expedient  With the use of bombs dropped from  eroplanee, however it has been fig-  red out that mines in the path     of  Enormous Cost of  World Wars  tmgjmm  GILLETT* I  The present European crisis calls to  mind the vast cost of war both in  lives .and money, and serves as a reminder of the staggering immensity of  tho sum the world has spent on wars'  since the beginning of the eighteenth  century.

Perhaps  to-day, perhaps to-morrow, perhaps in a month; but you're  going to buy it.

You're bound to get more style satisfaction out of a broad choice than a narrow one.   You get the broad choice now; you may not get it later.  And it's the broadest choice we've ever invited you to: broad in patterns,  in value, in prices, in sizes.  We'd be disappointed if you didn't grasp the opportunity: it really means as  much to us as it means to you.   Why not come in to-morrow ?  Thomas Lawson, Limited
