That within two montha work will  bo commenced on the projected Canadian Northern Kailroad line from r\am-  loops to Kelowna, and that in all  probability the line will be mf.'uijutly  completed to handle the crop of HUT,  waa the important announcement mado  Tuesday morning by Mr. M. H.  McLeod, the -general manager of the  C�� N. R., to a.group of'business men  who had gathered in the Board of  Trade room at the invitation of Mayor  Jones to meet Mr. McLeod and his  party. t '  Tho general manager, accompanied  by chief engineer, T, H. White, and  Mr, D. .). McDonald, the right-of-way  agent had motored down from Vernon  in the course of a tour of inspection  of the territory through which the lino  will pass, arriving in Kelowna -.bout  9 o'clock a. m. Mr. Price Ellison nlso  accompanied the railroad men from  Vernon.  As might of boon expected, after ti<e  many disappointments which have  been suffered by the people of the (lis-  trict, and the long drawn out delays  iu getting down to actual realization  of their hopes, Mr. McLeod was quew-  'tioned very closely regarding the intentions of the company.  He said,that negotiations were now  in progress for the sale of the bonds,  and that when these were successfully  concluded there was nothing to provent  the line going forward to completion.  Ho himself was very strongly impressed with tho need of tho line which he  looked upon as one of the chief fied-  ers of their British Columbia system.  He pointed out that by connecting  up the Okanagan with the main line  a good deal of new territory in northern Alberta and the Peace River district would be rendered available to  fruit shippers, and mado many enquir-  iet ns to the present and prospective  volume of tonnage from ,the district.  Later the party, accompanied by  Mayor Jones took a motor trip over  the benches, and through the principal  fruit districts, and it wns evident that  the officials had their previous notions  of tho district greatly enlarged by  what they saw.

Mobilization Camp to  be Opened June 5th  These increases which were equivalent  to a raise of 20 per cent., he thought  would be quite sufficient to cover the  deficiency.  Alderman Millie reported upon an investigation he had -been making regarding the lighting at-the Fire Hall,  where he figured ho oould make a very  big saving. He said the bill for  water and light at the Fire ;Hall  amounted to about ��400 a year.

LAWRENCE,  Local secretary of the Western Canada  Irrigation Association, Kamloops.  Four mischeviouB boys were brought  before the magiotrate yesterday on a  j charge of wilful damage at the:curling  rink. It appears they .have been in  ' the habit of playing with the "stones"  and rolling them around on the concrete floor. This rough treatment haB  resulted in considerable chipping of the  stones and damage to the handlos,  many of whioh have been wrenched off  altogether. One of the boys was fined  $10 and costs or ten days imprisonment, and the other $5 or nve dayB.  The other two were dismissed with a  warning.  Three of the same boys were alao  charged with wilfully doing damage to  a bicycle. Tt appoars t^at thoy sot  upon another boy who was riding his  bicycle and pulled him off, damaging  the machine. They were ordered to  pay the $3.80 whioh was the bill for  repairing the machine.  James. J. Hill, the great railroad  magnate, and one o�� the builders of  western America, died at tit. I'aul, on  Monday, following an operation, which  on account of his age, 78 years, he  was unable to resist.  The history of Hill's life is the history of the development of the American northwest. Fifty years ago he  was a dock clerk in St. I'aul and  practically , penniless. . He di��d .&���  multi - millionaire. Lord      Mount  Stephen, Lord Strathcona, Herman  W. Ellison, formed a trio which  bought, in the bonda of the old Minnesota and Pacific Railway, putting  Hill in charge. This was the beginning of the great Hill railway  system. With the completion of the  Great Northern to the Pacific Coast,  steamahip lines to the Orient were  establiBhed to -provide a market for  American gooda. The development  of the country through which the  roads travelled was the great life  work of his transportation * geniuB.  The construction of the north bank  rond to Spokane and Portland and  subsequent establishment of a steamer line to Sari Francisco were the  final great efforts of hia life.  Hill's activity continued to the last.  He held a business conference on his  deathbead. Realizing that his illness  was probably fatal, on Sunday ho  called several railroad officials to his  bedside for instructions regarding the  disposition (if, several pending matters.  He also conferred with liank officials.  One of the hist gigantic deals in which  ho participated wns the allies' loan.  I Mr. Hill waa a close personal friend  of the King *i Belgium, and did everything in his power to assist the King  and the people of that stricken land.   O   McCUBBIN - FOREMAN  | The wedding took place at tho Presbyterian Manse yesterday of W. A.  MoCubbin to Mrs. Foreman. The  ceremony, which was a very quiet one,  was performed by the Rev. A. Dunn.  Later the happy couple motored to  .Vernon on their way to Banff, where  Bhort honeymoon will be ajient.  Both bride and groom are well-known  in Kelowna, and ahost of friends will  wish them every happiness.  Lieut. W. H. Barlee arrived home  last Thursday for a well earned rest  after his experiences in tbe trenches.  The Volunteer Reserve was lined up to  aid in tho enthusiastic reception whioh  was given by the crowd of citizens who  assembled on the wharf to greet him,  and when he stepi>ed of! tbe boat he  had a busy time shaking the hands  uvhich were held out to ihim. Out-  Avafdly, Lieut. Barlee was looking well  and none the worse for his experiences,  but appearances are not always to be  trusted, for though ibronzed with the  outdoor life he had led, the awful ex-"  perienres ho has undergone have left  their murk on his nerv.-ous system,  which has suffered considerably.  Lieut- Barlee left Kelowna early in  the war with the B. C. Horse, after-  warda transferring to the C. M. E.  with whom he haa served in tho thick  of the; fighting. After some six and a  half montjjs of trench warfare he has  found it necessary to have a rest, and  has been invalided home for two  months. It is unlikely that his pres-  on Btato of health will allow him to  go back to France for some time, how-  over, and when his leave has expired  it is expected that he will be given  duty in Canada.  : The pagoda at tho rear of the Aquatic pavilion has beon opened up for  tho season this week, and refreshments  of various k:iids will be on sale under  the    capable    management    of    Miss  .WalUflon.

Eleventh  Annual Convention  Delegates Attend   From   All  Farts of the Okanagan  Tho eloventh annual distriot convention for the Okanagan District, of the  Woman's Christian Temperance Union  waa hold in Kelowna on Thursday and  Friday of last week, the public meetings being in tho Opera House and the  sessions iu the Presbyterian Church.  Tho principal speaker was Mrs. Gordon  Wright, tho Dominion President of the  W. C. T, U. ���   I  The Okanagan Valley was well  represented, and the following ia the  list of delegates : "  Armstrong.���Mrs. Ball, Mrs. Siming-  ton, Mrs. Bird, Mrs. Arnott, and Mrs.  Thomas.  Vernon,���Mrs. Doherty, Mrs. Hunter,  Mrs. Atkinson.  Kelowna.���Mrs. Swerdfager, Mrs. C.  Wilson, and Miss Porto.

Keremeoa.���Mrs. Gibson, Mrs. Keeler,  and Mr<s.  Harrison.  The following Silver Medalists were  also present to compote for the Gold  Medal : MiaBes Brown nnd Angwin,  and Master Fraser Lister, of Summer-  land ; Mrs. Hunter -of Vernon, and  Miss Baymer of Kelowna.  On ii�� arrival ot the boat on Thursday afternoon the delegates were taken  for a motor drive around tho K.L.O.  Bench, which they thoroughly enjoyed.  The first meeting, which was held in  the evening in the Opera House, was  well attended. Mayor .Tones presided  and welcomed tho delegates to the city  in a pithy little speJeeh. He was delighted to welcome tho delegates from  tho south end of the lake where the  apricots were in bloom, and from the  north ond, where they produce the  apple in abundance, ��ind raise the famous Irish "fruit," the Perfect, Gem and  Mortgage Lifter. He referred to the  -Prohibition Bill1, which he said would  be a great mortgage lifter. He was  pleased to see the great step forward  that the cause of women had taken in  the last two years. No one showed a  greater oYgeeo of patriotism than the  women of the empire, and the women  of Canada are not behind those across  the sea. They sent their boys to do  their share of tho work, the women  endeavoring to carry on the work left  by the husbands and sons who have  gone to tho front. We must look to  tho mothers of the country to take a  deep interest in the schools. If they  were in close touch with the teachers  of the public schools, and took some  interest in the* educational life of their  children, they would be able to promote the beat interests of temperance,  for the boy will not depart from the  lessons of temperance learned at school  when he grows up. Ho thought it  only right to refer to the groat work  of the founder of the W. C. T. U., Mias  Frances Willnrd, who did so much to  promoto the interests of the sooiety.  "Vou are near," he said, "to victory,  see that you attain it. Your interest  in tho groat tomperance movement will  need to bo backed by every effort you  can give it,"  J Mr. Ti. V. Rogers then gave an ad-  . dress on tho economic sido of the lem-  ' peranco question, and 'quoted statistics  j to prove that if tho money invested in  ��� the manufacture of liquor were to be  invested in any oeher manufacture, the  producing power would be increased!  many foldC  , After tho singing of "0, Canada,"  I the Mayor introduced the gueBt of  honor, Mrs. Gordon Wright, Dominion  .President of tho W. C. T. U,, who gave  a very interesting address on "Tokens  of Coming Victory." "Referring to the  great war aB being an instrument in  bringing these tokens of viotory, she  | said that it was a war in defence of  the principles upon which our empiro  is founded: justics liberty and freedom,  afTd even moro than that, the very  principles of our Christian civilization.  The mothers of Canada would not dare  lay detaining hands on their boys in  defence of these principles, which moan  more than human life to us. Somo of  the tokens of coming victory mention  ed wore thc Prohibition Bill just introduced into the provincial legislature,  tho prohibition of vodka in the Russian Duma, and the prohibition of the  use    of    absynthe during the war   in  Legislature Prorogued  After Record Session  By-Election Fraud Investigation  Committee Presents its  Report  The Legislature prorogued Wednesday  evening when the .Lieut,-Governor gave  his formal assent to the bills passed  within the last month or two.  The sosaion has been a record one,  laating three months, with approximately 85 sittings of the House, and 130  committee meetings.  The election writs aro issuable July  5th, and as nominations are this year  six weeks before polling day, the election cannot take place before August  20th. It will probably come about  the lirst of September, unless some decision is mado later for a postponement..  Premier Bowser is to go on a tour  of Vancouver Island next - Wednesday,  and round about June 17th he will go  north and over, the G.T. P. He will  tour southern B. V. some time about  the end of July or early in August.  The report of the Vancouver election  frauds investigation committee was  preseuted yesterday afternoon. There  was no discussion whatever. The committee finds that there was a conspir- .  acy to carry on wholesale personation  in Vancouver for the election of the  Liberal candidate, and pluggers were  brought in from Seattle and picked up  in Vancouver at ten dollars each.  They wero paid by J. T. Scott or hia  workers. J. T. Scott was found to  have prepared lists for personating,  and to have prepared also pluggers'  cards. It was found also that Scott  was paid his salary by the Provincial  Liberal Association, of which Mr. M.  A. Macdonald, the Liberal Candidate,  is chairman. It waa found by the  committee that detectives employed by  by Macdonald and Scott, to watch the  Conservatives, found that no illegal  practices had be^n carried on by them,  H. H. Pearce,. one of Scott's workers,  was induced to go to Seattle by motor  car and was thero kept practically in  duress to prevent him from appearing  before tho investigating committee.  The committee does not make a finding on "some of' the personal relations of the Liberal candidate wilh  those who carried on personation,"  meaning the Gosden-Macdonald fifty-  dollar episode, as thia matter is in  dispute in the fourts. It recommends  that the Attorney-General's department  continue the work of investigation.   O   Kelowna Volunteer Reserve  The attendance at Monday night's  drill was very much better than usual  but there were not sufficient men to  enable company and platoon drill to  be practiced, notwithstanding this a  very pleasant and profitable evening  waa put in at squad and rifle drill.  To make up for the shortage of men  thc executive aro seriously thinking of  forming a section or two composed of  ladies, if the ladies aro willing. Sergt.  Chaplin will agree to give a sqnad  separate instruction., until it is sufficiently advanced to join a general  parade. Tho executive fool sure the  Kelowna ladios would prove apt and  industrious . cadets, entering heart'ly  into the spirit of the thing.  At tho meeting aftor tho parade, it  was decided to hold a smoker in Ray-  mer's Hall on Tuesday, June 16th, in  honor of Lieut. Barlee, C. M. R at  which the lieutenant had promised to  address the men on Mb experiences in  I the troncheB.

After nn instrumental selection by  Miss K. Jones, pledge cards were hand-  od around for recruits for the "White  Uibbon Army." and the meeting closed by singing the  National Anthem.  On Friday morning at 1) o'clock the  ladies met in business session in the  Presbyterian Church. .An address of  Welcome was given by Mrs. 11. II.  "Millie of Kelowna, to which Mrs. Hunter of Vernon replied. Mrs. Bird of  Armstrong tread a paper un "Anti-  Narcotics," at the close of which Mrs.  Wright gave some extracts from two  letters written by boys at tho front to  their mothers in London, Ont, The  extracts were ns follows : And, mother, it i�� just terrible the way the women of Canada are sending tobacco  und cigarettes- to our boys. 1 feel so  sorry for Canadian homes; so many of  our Canadian boys have just become  cigarette fiends, and then they will  drink." The other letter was from a  boy who smoked before leaving Canada : Mother, don't send us any moro  cigarettes. Wo three have sworn oil  smoking for tho rest of the war, for  we have seen tho awfulness of its  effects among our Canadian boys."  Mrs. Wright incidentally mentioned  thai sho was Vice-President of the  Western Ontario lied Cross, and ^as  the only ono of the executive who protested against the sending of narcotics  to the soldiers at the front. Sho,  herself, is the mother of three boys in  khaki, one of whom is at tho front.  Mrs. Wright also gave a very helpful  address on "Our Presidents and their  Responsibilities."  The afternoon session was largely  taken up with the reports from the  different Unions, greetings from sister  Booitiee, election of officers unci reports  of committers. Mrs. Wright, also gave  an address on "Inlluenco of Women in  Civic Life." Many have said 11ml  woman's chief place is at home, and  this was true to a certain extent. But  her kingdom was as far as her Influence extended, Home was tho holy ol  holies. A good woman's Influonc ���  always tended to civic uplift and civic  bettortnent. The day was passing in  which women lbought it nice to say  thoy were against women having thu  franchise. It was a most womanly  thing to go and cast her ballot for  anything that tends to civic betterment. The home was tho state in  miniature, and if we safeguarded the  homo we need not be afraid or t Instate. Mrs. Wright referred to a statement made to tho etToct that after I lie  war the race would degenerate, as all  the best mon would be killed off, and  only slackers and physically unfit men  would be left to be the Others of tho  coming generation. In refutation of  this, she said that there was an insistent -call to the mothers of Canada to  train their daughters'in such n way  that they will realize that, life must  mean something moro than pleasure,  and that they held in their hands the  fate of future generations. Canada,  in the days to come would 'pot produce a race of degenerates, even if  slacker* wero the fathers.' Novor in  the salue way has woman entered into  such a kinirdom of civic betterment.  The fate of the nation may rest in  thoir hands, no thoy must do all in  their power to raise, even' higher, tho  standard of womanhood and motherhood. Men and women togother would  make for homo betterment, civic betterment and nation-wide betterment.  Mrs. Arnott of Armstrong then   gave  a very interesting paper on "Mothers'  Meetings."  Tlie following resolutions were  adopted during the session :  I.

That our District secretary be  requested to. write thc Provincial Government commending them for the  stand they have taken in regard to tho  prohibiting of the liquor traffic.  7. That the local Unions urge upon  women possessing the property qualifications for citizenship to exercise the  same, also thnt those not owning  property in their own name endeavor  to  qualify  S. That the secretary of our District and every local union bo asked to  write Sir Sam Hughes immediately,  urging him to declare liquor oui of  hounds at the Vernon camp, and to  disconrage in every way within his  power the red light districts; and further that our societies pledge themselves to cooperate withe the Vernon  Union in any work they undertake for  our soldiers; also that mothers, sisters  and sweethearts dolugo Sir Sam  Hughes with letters, starting .Juno 1st  and have all letters reach him by the  15th, so that.he will feci that the Vornon camp is on many a woman's  heart.

This is the conclusion reported by  the Public Accounts Commission on  the Songhees Reserve purchase  Correspondence  THE lUWKRENDUM METHOD  To tho Editor of the Record,���  Dear Sir,���As so little opportunity  exists for discussing even th�� most important public problems, 1 would urge  all who havo thought over the principle of tho "Referendum to give us  with your permission, somo brief ex-  j pi'csBion of their views in your columns, and especially those who as  candidates are preparing themselves to  represent public interests in tho  national council.  'I he chief merit of. the referendum  is its democratic oharaotor, in its appeal to all electors individually, and  the educative effect resulting. Its'  great demerits are its' cumbersomeness  in use, and Us total inapplicability to  any save the simplest problems. This  direct form of legislation appears to  be successful in some municipal atTairs,  but  rarely  in  national business.  The following conditions are surely  necessary in any satisfactory voto by  referendum :-  1. A desire [or a rcferondum on any  question should clearly be manifested  by a large section of the electors.  2. Tho question submitted must involve no complications.  .'L -histice lo any distinct dnsfe of  tho population as regards grievances  are not to be readily estimated by the  whole electorate. Thus, when the  working hours of smelterrnen in P>. 0.  were, q few years ago, reduced by law  from twelve hours a day, this mens-  uie wns decided in their favor by the  pressure of humane progess. Referendum voting would become endless if  representative government, (presumably expert work on national business!)  worn' to be set aside for every suoh  question. Justice is longer delayed  by  suoh  J.   method.  Our present referendum problems  afford the following comments on the  above condil ions i  1. The direct reference to the electorate on ihe enfranchisement of women  was not asl.pd for by any portion of  the community : probably not even by  ono individual. Legislation on the  liquor question was undoubtedly desired, but whether the referendum on it  was desired is doubtful.  2. The liquor question is extremely  complicated, largely owing to past  legislative bungling and to the liquor  monopolies. The liquor bill is very  complicated, though if does not moot  the complications of the liquor problem.  . 3. Justice to women is scarcely to  be expected from a referendum to men  and  boys.  Yours truly,  I��.  K. KERR.  Serbio's New Army  After crossing the Agenn Sen without loss, tho Serbian Army in full  strength lias been landed nt Saloniki  according to a despatch received by  wireless telegraph.  Serbia's new army has been variously estimated as numbering between  S0,000 and 100,000 ollicors and men.  It was reorganized on tlie island of  Corfu, which is approximately 700  miles distant   by  water from   Saloniki.  The Serbian army totalled about  300,000 men at lhe outbreak of the  war, but this forco was greatly depleted as thojrosult of an opodeinio of  typhoid tot er and bii tor engagements  fought, in an endeavor to chock the  Austro-Cermati and Ihilgarian invasion  of Serbia and Montenogrp. Tho remnant of Ih" original armies have re-  ticaied through the Albanian moun-  tnins to the eastern shores of the  Adriatic.  On reaching the sea const tho Serbians were transported to the Island of  Corfu, win re they* were' supplied with  new rifles and clothing and efficiently  equipped for further service on the  Balkan battlefields.  i Explodes Theory of  Long-Inhabited Continent  A theory, based upon the discovery  of a human skeleton in earth bed alleged to be of great age, that man  had been present on tho North Ameri- [  can continent at a much earlier period  than had ever boon supposed, has boon  There are ">.', Sundays in this year,  This will not Occur again for a hundred and ton years.  Sir. Thomas While says that ultimately nil the railways ofCanada may  be nationalized. The suggestion does  not look so startling as it would have  done a few years ago. Wo are gettjng  used to big figure s.���Toronto Star.  exploded by ��� the results of a special  investigation conducted by officials' of  the geological survey, which are published in the annual report ol that  branch just issued.  The discovery of tho human remains  which was mnde nonr Savonn, B. C,  caused n mild sciontific sensation. It  was made tho subject of a paper presented to the Royal Society of Canada  at its meeting last year, the claim  then lioing made that the beds in which  tho remains were found wore of glacial  fUJO.  If this claim had been established it  wouhl have given evidence oftho presence of man lonir years yours before  it has beon considered that anything  in human form existed in North America, and would have upset many theories hitherto held on  this subject.  Tho results of investigation, however  dispose of the claim of any very groat  antiquity for tlie remains discovered.  Mr.', 0; W. Drysdalo looked into the  geology of the locality where the discovery was mado, while Mr. F. H. 'S-  Knowles of the anthropological branch  exainined the skeleton. Mr. Drysdale's  conclusion is thut "tho alluvial series  in this section is clearly of recent and  not glacial age."  Air. Knowles, from an examination  of the skeleton, although it is in a.  somewhat defective condition, has l-ren  =iblo to deduce that it is ��� f an :r��dinn  woman, wall 'on in yuars. probably  about five feet in height, who suffered  from chronic rheumatism, led an active  mode of life in her earlier years, and  was accustomed to rest in a squatting  posture as usual among primitive  peoples. The verdict of this scientific  coroner's inquest is that tho woman  may have been drowned in Kamloops  lake and her body buried along with  Ihe normal accumulation of silts and  gravels on the lake bottom.

Cyril Goie left last Wednesday  for Vancouver where he has enlisted in the artillery. Cyril has a  brother, Fred, with the 172nd at  Kamloops, and this double sacrifice from one family is typical of  the generous way in which West-  bank has responded to the call of  duty.  On Monday last Westbankers  were reluctantly forced to bid farewell to two very highly esteemed  residents, Mr. and Mrs. L. Feather-  stonhaugh. Mr. Fetherstonhaugh  has enlisted in the Stratlicona  Horse, Winnipeg, and Mrs. Fetherstonhaugh, after a short stay in  Winnipeg, will proceed to New  York on a visit to her sister. Both  during their long residence here  have formed a wide circle of friends  to whom their departure is a source  of deep regret.  The familiar chug-chug of gasolene engines and numerous other  signs of activity have attended the  government spraying operations  here duiing the past week.

The price is only $3.50 and everything about  the corset in the way of materials, trimmings, garters, Stc, is most  attractive in quality and design. We Invite Inspection.

He was fined $5 and  costs.  A man was fined last Saturday  for riding his bicycle on the sidewalk. This still seems to be a common practise in spite of the fact  that the condition of the roads  give no excuse.

The new time table on the C.P.R  system comes into effect Sunday.  So far as we here are concerned,  the principal change is in the time  of the departure of the north  bound train from Vernon, which  will leave at 2.55, instead of 3.45  as hitherto. This eliminates some  of the tedious wait which has had  to be made at that point, and also  makes better connection with the  westbound main line train which  will leave Sicamous at 5.38, or  only thirteen minutes after the arrival of the Okanagan train. There  will be no change in the lake boat  service, nor in the Kettle Valley  schedule. .  The junior lacrosse team and  several of the business men inter  ested in the boys held a meeting  this week to get things into shape  for the opening of the season.

American   Writer   Gives Reasons Why  Verdun Was Chosen as German Objeotive  "I've borrowed the neighbor's phonograph for this evening."  "Giving a party?" ���  "No, but by thunder, I'm going to  have one quiet evening al home."  ben. Joseph S. Gallieni, former minister of war for France, who was in  command of the entrenohed camp at  tho French capital during the first  German rush, which was checked at thc  battle of the Marne, is dead at Versailles.  Bulgarian troops crossed the Greek  frontier on May 36th, and occupied the  Greek forts of Rupel, Dragotin and  Spatovo. The Greek troops which had  garrisoned these forts withdrew on the  advance of thc Bulgarians, who claimed permission from the Athens government for their act.  Mrs. Pankhurst, who has just completed a tour of Eastern Canada and  tho United States in the interest of  the Serbian relief fund, is beginning a  second tour in the interests of recruiting, beginning at Victoria, June 7th  and will arrive in Revelstoke on June  the 10th. ��,  Why did the Germans choose Verdun  tiM their objective? In the minds of  moat casual readers of history and of  war news, Verdun is accepted as the  bulwark of France, the gate to Paris,  and the chief fortress of that great barrier which from Luxemberg to Switzerland defended the eastern frontier of  thc Republic. It waa, al) things considered, the strongest fortified place in  Europe when the war came. Why,  then, did tho Germans elect to fight  there?  The reason ia simple. The ftrat  months of thc war utterly eliminated  fortresses from the reckoning. The  rapid collapse of Liege, Antwerp and  Maubeugc demonstrated that the fort  had failed to keep pace with the gun.  What was illustrated in the west in  the early days was finally demonstrated in the east last summer, when the  Russian fortresses followed the path of  tho Belgian and French. Accordingly  tho French, after the Marne, simply  abandoned the forta of Verdun as de-  fenaive.'poaitionsf They took the guns  out of them, they moved them to now,  concealed poaitions, and the forts  ceased to have real importance. Verdun was only a point in the long  tronch line running from the North  sea to Switzerland. The forts, save  that they provided protection for reserves, lost all value. They entered  into the system of trenches, and Verdun was defended by men and by guns  and by ditches, precisely like Rhiems  or Arras.  In the second place, Verdun waa  the most difficult place in the French  line to supply with either men or munitions. Before the war two railroad  lines of first importance mat at Verdun���one, a double traok line coming  eaBt from Paris in the direction of  Metz; the other coming north along  the Meuse valley from the Paris-  Nancy line. When the Germans took  St. Mihile in September, 19S4, thoy  cut the latter line. In the retreat  from the Marne the Germans halted  at Varennea and Montfaucon, and  from these towns their heavy artillery  commanded the Paris-Verdun line by  indirect, fire and it ceased to be available.  There was left to the French, then,  only one narrow-gauge line coming  north trom Bar-le-Duo, a light railway, incapable of bearing heavy traffic becauae of the grades. Practioally  then, Verdun is isolated, so far as  railroad communication was concerned, and the army defending the Verdun sector waa dependent almost entirely upon road transport, upon auto  mobile trucks, or aa the Frenoh say,  camiona. Thia transport was sufficient as long as Verdun was held by  a relatively small force and waa only  a fraction of the great front, but would  it be sufficient when ihe main attack  was directed at thia sector and the  Germans massed two thousand guns  and a quarter of a million -men on a  narrow front? Could France munition  or supply an equal number of men  and sufficient guns to meet the storm?  The Germans believed not. "-Frank H.  Simonda, in the American Review of  ReviewB.

The self-made merchant said to his son, "Of  course clothes don't make the man, but they make  all of him except his hands and face during business hours." You may not think your advertising  a very important matter, but it is all strangers  see of your business and they will judge you by it.  If you use your advertising space judiciously,  these strangers will come to you to deal and become acquainted with you. Advertising is the  best means to enlarge your business acquaintance.
