Mysterious Searchlights  Hover_Over Lake  Supposed to have Been Two  Scouting Aeroplanes  No little excitement was ouu*od 'lues-  day evening by a rumor wnich was  circulated to the elect that [tcrnplhues  had been seen circling over tbo lako  down between Kelowna and Peaehland.  Visions of the much talked-of raid bv  Germans from the south of the line  which according to reports down the  Pacific coatt waa due to take place ou  Wednesday, the Kaiser's oirthditv, were  were at onoe conjured un, anil some  of the more nervous began to fear  that Kelowna was after all <roing to  be in the war in earnott.  The rumor, it appears, unlike most  suoh bad a oertain foundation, as it  appears that Mr. 1). Gellatly, thc well-  known rancher of tha west eido had  tent notification to the mayor nnd also to the military authorities at Vernon and the coast that he had seen  what bt believed to be two -emplanes  flying over the lake �� few utiles below  hia place and finally disapoe iring over  tha mountains to the north-west in tbe  direction of Kamloops.  Upon enquiring of Hr. GelUtlv at to  what he actually did tee, be informs  us that white he and other members  of the family were tented at supper  about eix o'clock Tuetday they were  called out of the house by their little  girl, who had noticed a oeouli.tr licht  passing backward and forward in the  sky. Field glasses were obtained snil  with their aid tome, kind of a tctrt'h  light could be distinctly seen 'browanils light onto tbe lake from ���> considerable height. The nenoil if light  zig-tagged backward and forward  across the water in a manner whioh  suggested that the aviator, if such it  was, was endeavoring to looato his  whereabouts. Sons' nine or tun people watched the light for fully twenty  minutes as it oirclrd around. At it  pasted on over the hills, it wat iot.pd  bv a Seconal light, and it teemed to  the watchers that the two 'vero flailing signals to eaoh other. Finally  thev disappeared from view.  Naturally there is a good deui of  scepticism at to the nretumption that  the lighta proceeded from aeroplanes,  . but at there were many u.'o, Ie tvno  taw them and they had ample time  for observation, and thev are uerleat'v  convinced that they were asarchlifhtt  they, had seen, it it hard <o explain  it in any other way.

Drowning Fatality at Oyama  A distressing drowning inoAni took  place last Saturday at Ovama, when  a voung man named John 'lowland  Beasley broke through lho loj of  Wood's Lake and was drowasd. Ihe  take was onlv partially fraivn and the  voung man was rather inad"i wily trv-  inw the strength af the ice bv walking  out on it, -his younger brother, a lad  of fourteen remaining on tbe bal,k.  When his brother fell thrown, about  200 vardf from the shore the vojnror  led at once ran 'or help, and n neighbor triod to reach the drownb" youth  with ,i rope. But the latter w.is too  numbed with the cold to Itoop uold of  the rope and eventuallv eank from  sight. A boat*was nrocured ond attempts made to drag fair the body  with a eant hook. It waB over an  hour, however, before their cUorts were  successful, the body being found in  about 46 feet of water.  Coroner E. Weddell went up horn  Kolownn fiundav accompanied by Dr.  Watson to oonduot an inciuirv - regular inquest belnt considered unnoces-  sarv, as the affair was obviouslv, a  ours accident.  Beasley and his brother have been  living alone in thoir houso bv thai lake  shore for some time, their omenis being at present away on a viuit to  I'narlnnal. whence thov wore lo return  in Mav. The news of tho ��ad Hisaisler  has been oabled to them.   *   Mr. T. T.

The avainge  alta ml.in.'e at regular meetings of tba  board had been 10.46 as contoured  with 7.73 in 1913, this indicating  much greater interest �����-. the pt.tt of  the directors during the Past ytat.  Tliero has been 197 patients m 1PM  three less than in 1913. Uf ihese 126  were males and 71 females. There had  boen 76 operations performed, all bv  looal surgeons, eighteen more than th.a  previous year. Five oases it lyi Laid  had boon treated, three from ot I side  the oity, nn'l three cases had been reg'  istored as suspected typhoid i ut had  all been discharged as cured in leas  tliaan fifteen davs. This oompsted  favorably with 1913, whon thii lean  eases of typhoid had been 1 rented,  eight from within the oity,  Tho profit and loss .itatement sttial  tho secretary, showed that tho subscriptions totalled about 890 more  than in 1913, but individual si bit rip-  tions hnd been 8330 lesB. Dnnutions  from societies and olubs had raniio up  tho difference, giving 8420 more thin  in 1913.  Among the larger contributore Was  tho Kolowna club, giving t!!iK) und 150  iiroceeds of nn annual billiard tomnv  ini'iit, the prizo for which was a cup  a'ivon by the lato G. W. Manpin vflth  the stipulation that all entrance ires  should be arivon to the hospital. The  Patriotic Concert proceeds, which Int.I  been shared with tho Benevolent So-  cioty amounted to 8178.60. Other sub  scriptiont were made in the shape of  fruit, produce, etc., totalling ��235, and  gifts of wood to the valuo of 857.00  The new maternitv hospital fail cost  810.722. It bad also been found nee-  ossurv to repaint the old hospital' and  make othir alterations to tbe extent  of about 81,000. Towards these sums  thov had 89,470 and to nrovido for  the balance a mortgage loan of ��*2,500  at 8 per cent., had boen arrajitfad.  There had. been a large falling off in  nntienta' charges during lho year,  thete amounting to 81,700 lesj than  in 1913, and oonsequen'.lv thu go em  ment por capita grant would ue about  8500.  Owing to the prevailing financial  condition it had been extremely itilli-  cult to collect patients' fees, and it  had been found neoessary to write off  8806.00 for the year. It wat slill  possible that a part of this amount  might be recovered, but that sum v us  sufficiently doubtful to render it inadvisable to carry it as an asiet. There  had been a further nuiti'iu" nf fi.'MO  written off for the preceding year for  a similar reason. It was propositi to  publish in tbe looal papers B full list  of accounts written off.  In concluding tht seoretary said he  had handed to the chairman * list of  oash oubtoribers who were entitled to  vote at tho meeting. Those included  all who had contributed 16 in onsh or  over during the year. A motion was  tn be placed before the mootin- that  all who had contributed in my other  way to tlio value of 86 or upwardt  should bo ontitlod to vote, and if the  meeting carried such porsons \v uld be  allowed to vote.  Copies ol the finanoial statement  (which appears in another column)  were handed around, and aftor n brief  ditouasion both reports were adopted.  The motion to permit subscribers in  kind to vote in the same way as subscribers in cash wat then put to the  meeting and unseed. A similar amendment wat alto made with respect, to  life-membership wh ch had been conferred on those who had contributed  860 in cash during anv vear. This  privilege was made to includo thot*  who had furnished n ward in the hospital.  PRESIDENT'S REPORT  The retiring president, Mr. H. .1.  Hewetson then read his report.  In hit report the preaident said they  had tean the financial ttatement and  heard the secretary'e figures vjth regard to the working of the Hospital;  all tnat remained for him to do wat  tn tell them of the way the liraclort  had tried to do their dutv to the 'urine.  It had become increasingly necessary  to provide a suitable hospital for  maternity oases. After very careful  consideration the directors hiyidcd to  build a wing on to the present hotpi-  Methodist Annual  Missionary Banquet  Interesting Addresses on Ho.i e  and Foreign Missions  (OtWatttS tt fata t.i  A very pleasant time wus Hj.e.at in  the Methodist church on Monday evening, it bein the occasion of their  sixth annual missionary Lan |uut.  A largo number wero nre,<.nt when  tho bantiuot opened at 6.30 p.m.  Tho tables were beautifully decorated and all present did ample jus-.ico to  the bountiful spread ntt'ore* thajn.  Under the chairmanship of Mr. .1. A.  digger the speech-ma. i n r session be  "an at 8 o'olook. After the '.oust  to His Majesty thu King hid ben  ilrunlai, tiie pastor, Kev, J. i*. Swit/er  in n brief speech extended h. ar  greetings to those present.  Mr. K. P. Oxley proposed the toast  of ''Missions nnl Social Cond.tions,"  which waB responded to by Mayor  Jones, who reforred to tho rapid development 'of science during tbe u>ist century, ihuB brinTinir tho difforent toun-  tries and races into clos.r toua.ii with  each other. The antagonism tliat  had to be overcome, the i tfl'ieiioe of  educations and ooenin; up of industrial cnterDrises, breaking tltuv.t lhe  caste system in Oriental countries. Referring to the work of medical missionaries he claimed that this la'ti'iuiar  phase of mission work was Ihe one  that appealed most to their sympathy  and that we should not shirt n"r us-  ponsibility in carrying the best aiur  oivilization posBeesee fo those w no are  in need.  Mr. W. E. Adams next oropobed the  toast of "ltelation ot Missions to  Commerce," which was ablv lei-iMndoal  to by Thos. Bulman.  Tho speaker pointed out tl ut wher-  over the missionary went the- implements and machinery of oivilizi.tion  were bound to be 'ntroduoed. He read  extraott of tetters from the largo manufacturing companies bearing trt.ti-  monv to this fact.  Rev. .1. II. White, D.D.. supo.'iutin  dent of missions in B. '.. w.is then  introduced in a brief speech bv '>'��� It.  Smith of Westbank.  Dr. White's subject Wat ' hVf.*iuar,y  of operation on the Home Mission  Fiold," with a special application to  the Okanagan district.  The speaker who is one of the  neor missionaries of the irovtsco reforred to conditions in the ctti'lv |cr-  iod of the country's history, Uld small  beginnings of tho Methodist church  and tho strong and powerful influence  she wiolds today at home nd abroi.d.  During the laat quadrenium oviu 824,-  000,000 had been raised bv the thurch  nnd the value of the proiiertv held  was over 8)2,000,000.. He Toko optimist ically of the future of miBsions  and whilo subscriptions might show a  decrease this vear yet he felt sure if  the rank and file of tho iihurch did  their duty we would be able to nuin-  tuin our staff in the mission field.  He suggested that it was our dutv  to economize in order that ihe <iork  in less fortunate fields should not bo  hampered for lack of funds.  'lhe "Wf M. S," was reap in led to  bv Mrs. al. W. Jones who rofarrod to  the wonderful success met w'ik by  women engaged in missionary vork.  The financial noaition of their notion-  was never endangered bv lack of fui.ds,  it being their polioy never to undertake work unlosa the money for carrying it on was in tight,  The oloBing addresses of the evening  were made by It. E. Seetey and Kev.  Gordon Tanner, the subject bein.' the  interesting one, "Missions nil or the  War."  The lost speaker in referring to tho  war made several patriotic remarks  whioh drew forth applause horn tho  meeting. He referred to he great  missionary movement after '.he Napoleonic wort and predicted a similar  advance after the pretent war, whon  Prussian militarism had been crushed  and when tho vaunted tuperioritv of  German Theology had been expoted in  its true light. Ht assured iiis liear-  ert that the world would expect much  from the Anglo-Saxon races an.I that  we should present Christianity in its'  noblest and purett thoughts to the  moot ol the world.  The program was assisted ur\ muoh  bv solas and duotts from Mitt I tamos  Pearson and Mr. F. Pedlar.  Subscriptions were taken in i-iil of  Missions and the mooting was brought  to a close by singing the National  Anthem.   4   Kev. W. T.

A recent issue of tho Manchester  Guardian contained the foiling extracts from the New York Times:  'lho only nossible ending of the  war is a thorough defeat of Gei'.i any.  Driven back to her Rhine cirongholds  she will oiler a stubborn resistance.  Even with Russia near or acluilly in  Berlin she would fight on. Hut for  what? Why? Because the Get man  people, the very people, ire resolved  to get themselves nil kiilkd before tne  inevitable day ot tho oneniy'B triumph?  Not at all. Tho wearv men in trenches, and the distressed neople raoioly  obev orders given by '<the Imperial nnd  military authorities, hor the mm ia  thoso high quarters defeat would be  end of ail. Desperations, with some  possible admixture of blind confidence,  will continue the wai. But why  ahould the German people m.iko ., further sacrifice of blood to tavo tee  pride and shoulder-straps of German  otlieialdom? It means a million ntore  battlefield graves, it meant fiightful  additions to the bill of coBts nnd to  the harshness of the terms. Since the  more dreadful ending is in plain view,  why not force the hotter ending 1 ow?  And the bettor ending, in I be opinion of this leading American IT per, is  nothing short of revolution,  In Her Own Interest Germany  Should End War  In one. of the most striking I iitlin ,  articles which has appeared in the  American press since the outbreak oi  tho war, the Sew York Times, suvs:  Germany is doomed to sure defeat.  Bankrupt in statesmanship, overmatched in arms, under the moral conai-mna  tion of the civilized world, I cfriend-  ��d only by Austria end the Turk (two  backward-looking dying nations! desperately battling with tl o hoete of  three great powers, sho pours oi.t the  blood of her heroic subjeols and  wastes her diminishing S'lbstmoe in a  hopeletB hi in- -to that postpones but  cannot alter tne final decree. Yet the  doom of the German i'mpirn muv become the deliverance of the Gorman  people. A* million Germans hn\e been  sacrificed, and a million ho-nis ,re desolate. Must other millions die and  other millions mourn before the people  of Germany take the appeal in the  court of reason and human liberty  from the Imperial military istte that  rushes them to ruin? They lave full  justification on the incompetence and  failure ol their rulers.  The world cannot and will not let  Germgny win the war. If the vert to  dominate Europe, peace and security  would vanish from the earth. A few  months ago the world only .lirnly comprehended Germany. It now knows  thoroughly that for its own rati sand  safety the nations must domilish the  towering structure of militariara in the  centre of Europe that hat become the  world's danger spot and ureutMt mm  tot.  Americans of German birth or descent should see and feel tbe truth of  the present position of Germiny. It  will be unfraternal and most cruel for  German Americans to keep tits truth  from Germans at home and 'o fail in  their plain duty ol making known to  them how the Imperial militaristic  ideal has fallen in the world's esteem  and how the enemies they now con'  front are but the first line if civilization's defences.  Freed from tho double incubus of  imperialism ��nd militarism, Go man  genius would have a mairvelloiis revel-  opemont. For their own happiness  and for their interests and their fu  ture the German peoplo ought now to  and tht war.

A certain farmer in Iowa has discovered that the benefits which appear  on the surface as attaching to the  the mail order plan sometimes spell  disaster and has written a very interesting story of his views ta a certain  farm paper. Here is a part oi his  story:  "We farmers need awakening to the  fact that we have unmistakably reached the period where we must thiok  and plan. I am one of the slow  farmers that have to be shown, and I  am now giving my experience that  others may profit, for knowledge is  more expensive now than ten' years  ago.  "Twenty-nine years ago I began my  farm career. I had an old team and  160. Our furniture was' mostly homemade chairs, cupboard and lounge  Dade from dry goods boxes, neatly  covered with ten oent cretonne '--��� my  rfirl-wife. We rented ei"hty acres.  Being a boy of good habits I got all  needed machinery and groceries oil  our home merchants on credit, until  the fall crops were sold. The firat  vear was a wet season and I did not  make enough to nav the creditors. I  went to each on date of promise and  explained conditions, raying rs muoh  as possible, and they aU carried the  balance over another year. They continued to accommade me until I was  able to buy a forty-aore piece of my  own.  "As soon as 1 owned these few acres  mail order houses began sending me  catalogues, and gradually I began to  send my loose change to them, letting  my accounts stand in my own home  town whore I hah gotten my accommodation when I most needed it.  "At that time we had ono of the  thriftiest little villages in the S"t��te���  arood business men in all branches,  who were willing to holp an honest,  fellow over a bad year, and a ttawn  full of People who came twice a week  to trade and visit. Our little ooun-i  try town supported a library, high  school, band, ball team, and we had  big celebrations every year.  "A farm near a live town soon doubles in value. I sold my forty acres  at a big advance and bought an 80-  acre farm, gradually adding to it until I had 200 acres of tho best land  in ilowa.

Education is  general and compulsory * throughout  the empire from the age of 6 io 14.  Thero wero more than 10,000,000 children in their schoolis last year.  When King Frederick William to-'i  over the helm of the Prussian ship of  state he declared that "The future will  belong to the best educated nation,"  and ed i.e., tion in books waB cvly the  beginning of the general education in  life thut the king had in mind.  Tho Germans were the first people*  to undertake the systematic education  uf thu hand as well as the mini of th?  child. Thev began tbe k udorvarl en  and the technical school flt almost tho  samo timo, and Froebol and Pes-^Iojjgi  in thoir work for German education,  revolutionized the tenching method-, of  tho world.  Every German is educi.ed ior the  particular work in life that has been!  chosen for him. Thero is no drifting  into a trade or profession���becoming a  machinist through tho ewoup-oUVjop  route, or a pharmacist through the  soda fountain route. lUu'.'h rh'iM has  his career selected for him, and w)*on  his training is finished, ho is fitted,  for no other.  Progressive parents send their child-  reji to the kindorgart'n at lorn or five  and at six if they are not thero the  Btat^ asks why. At the lioginn'u^* the  week is divided into 11 1 mutc I'.i arithmetic, onfl hour-for -in> n;r and four  hours for religion.  Tho school system of Germany is  very thorough and effective. 'Ipo kindergarten are taken thro igh their  worli at ti much fast sr pace lh(ln Canadian youngsters. Thu-) I have it t. n  (rood authority that the average German child of thirteen years i as an  education thHt would enable htm to  oasa the d<iuivulent of the British QtA  umbin or Ontario first class high  school certificate e\am.nal*on���a (��� ft  which few in our country n��ss before  sixteen or seventeen.

Such pupils  as are able to handle the \v���r,-:, and  these, arc of Course, the trroit Juniority, are far hotter fitted educationally  for successfully facing life. After the  [shins their school course than f*rc the  average boys ond girls of ibis A,*ui.tiy.  It is this high standard of common  antl high school work that d.^oonines  the proportionately high ntandard of  the University courses. Prom ill civilized countries, thousands of students  craduates of American, Englim, and  French nnd other universities, nn-  nually repair to Germany for lhe fin-  tshintr course in anv subjert, i,0 matter what. Not a professor in Harvard or Yale or any other of iho leading universities of tho Untti-d States  or Canadfi but has taken bis post  graduate course at Heidelburg at somo  other German university.  Germany owes its largo number of  universities and its widely diffused  higher education to its former subdivision into manv separate states and  manv of the so-called Gorman universities nre located in Austria and Switzerland. Altogether there aro 21 in  number.  Only a few date from the l.Uh century. All of the universities have four  faculties (as rogards theology, four  have both a Protestant aiu Ontholic  faculty). These institutions are the  most efficient and constitute th') greatest of institutional learning in the  world. Tho University of Heidelberg  is the oldest, having been founded in  1.186. Tt has among its alumni Rome  of the leading thinkers and writers  both living and dead.  lite discipline .is rigid and expulsion  from one university Constitutes n har  to admission to the others. Id tho  higher courses aid included medicine,  nhilosonhv, theoloo-v and law, nnd tho  natural sciences are also maintainxl.  The st tidies ftro largely elective,  which n-ives students the privilege of  pursuing such adv��noed work ,.s eeema  best adapted to their needs, whilo thev  may enroll contemporaneously in different institutions.  Tho oxpenso of maintaining iJttlfl universities is borne largely bv the slate,  onlv    flboiit    ten por cent., beta-; paid  ') MAGIC  READ THE l  BAKIN&LABEL!  Cum POWDER i  ift of a Warship  The three million British subjects  who are living and trading al read,  outside tho Empire are to l*e bv ited  to omulato the example of British  Dominions by subscribing for the gift  of R warship to the British fleet.  A fund iB being raised f0r this purpose by the Patriotic League of Britons outside the Empire. The l.;��g is  ont ron of the league. Lord Selborne  is chnirman/Lord Aldenham fills thc  posts of vice-chairman and hon. Tit-usurer, and tho influential (omn.tUee  which has been formed includes the  names of Lord Curzon, of Tedta-don,  Lord Milnor, Lord Charles lYreVford,  Sir Gerard Lowther, Sir. Claude M.  MacDonald and Sir. H. M. Durond.  Tho widely scattered communities of  Britons who are to bo found in tho  United States, in the fflr east, * in  Chili, in tho Argentine, and elsev here  are all anxious to do something for  the motherland in her hour of nted.  Working individually the efforts of  these communities are circumscribed,  being limited usually to the eouip-  oing of small parties 0f men who have  volunteered for service in Europe, and  the collection of money for Iho >ari-  ous war fund. The Patriotic league  bv co-ordinating their local i.lTort, will  enable these widely dispersed ruhjects  of the kin"' to afford the world n visible proof of tho solidarity of ihe British race.  The proposal f tho league bus the  cordial support of the admiralty. The  tvno of ship will, of course, thoend on  the amount subscribed, but the admir-  *iUy have afi*reed to apply the menov  to one of the larger ships now under  construction or to "makin? an addition to a class of cruisers most useful  by students in the foruv of fees.  Among tho university museums and  libraries thoso of Germany take high"  rank. Instruction in the universities  is mostly given by lectures, the pre-  Par&tory work being dono laru-olv in  laboratories^and during private hours.  Ten schools, technical high sihools  rank with universities. They lave the  power oi granting degrees, in lltese  such subjects are taught as agricultural building, civil engineering, theinis-  trv, agriculture, etc.  Numerous societies and unions of an  exclusively scientific character, designed for popular. diffusion of knowledge  are found in all communities.  Mental culture iB extensively .promoted by means of numerous public  libraries established in the capital,  university towns and other i��llkces.  Most celebrated ara those of Berlin,  which contain 1,000,000 volumns and  ���10,000 mss. The library at Heidelberg  comes next in size.  Wc find that the patr0nage of the  fine arts is among the cherished traditions of German Prinoes end even  whoro thero is no longer a court the  artistic impetus has survived thc fall  of the prince. Berlin haB no monopoly of the finest buildings devoted to  art. The museum and picture naileries of Dresden and other towns lival  those of Berlin, though the latter la  becoming the richest in the world in  its collections of paintings by great  masters, largely at the cost of piivate  collections in England,  There aro excellent schools for painting and music which are in '.-ouch with  the government, and so promising  tMinils are assured from the Prat, of a  career.  .Schools of music exercise a profound  influence f~r beyond the borders of  Germany.  Music gains a stimulus from 'he o��i-  tenoo of opera houses in every town,  supported by the government. Good  music thus brought in reach of .-ill, appreciation of it s very wide si read  among all classes of the nonul-ition.  Tho master musicians of Oermrny  hove so fullv touched th > hearts of Ike  people that their names are known in  all civilized lands.

W.untf  People's Society on Monday evcurag  by Mr. G. R. S. Blackaby, who went  into the details of this interesting  phase of the present war. Mr. t'lack-  tiby's studv of naval matters enabled  him to eive his hearers considerable insitrht into naval warfare. Answering the question "What hns our  navy done?" he pointed out lhe tusks  that Germany and Britain set before  and determined ambition, I'riiain't  them. Germany's strength wa* hatred  and determined ambition, Prit ain't  \v,iS her glorious traditions. Ger-  tnnnv's weakness lay in the fact that  she had no naval traditions nnd employed only short service men. Tho  snoakor compared the" two navies and  snoke of their respective exploits, in  the North Sea, Atlantic Ocean niid tht  1'iicifio Ocean.

The" pay out.annually about  three times the entire oost of the Panama Canal. Thev destroy directly  about three times aB muoh property as  was destroyed in the San Frano'soo  earthquake; their smokes and chews  cost them about twice what it costs to  maintain the government of ihe United States, including interest on ths  nublio debt." But is that ill it oosts?  We venture to say that for every  dollar spent on tobacco there is a  lowering of physical and mental efficiency, a waste of time and a development of selfishness that are lar more  costly than all the millions of mere  money for whose loos the habit is responsible.

P.O. Box JM  " Belgium"  By C. 0. J��mes, LL. D., M.A., O.M.G.  In tht Agricultural Gazette.  Belgium it a fairly oompact country.  11,373 Square milM in extent. It it  shaped more like a triangle than a.  square. From northwest to southeast  tne distance it 180 mile., Irom north  to south 110 miletf Itt boundorv  lengths are at follows:���sea coast, 42  mils.; Holland frontier, 369 milt.;  Prussian frontier, 60 milet; Grand  Duchy of Luxemburg, 80 miles; Frenoh  frontier, 384 milet. Tne country it.  mainly, a plaio riling gradually from  the coatt towards the south ani south  east where the hills reach an elevation  of 2000 feet. Tht river Scheldt flows  northeast almost parallel with the  coatt and about 26 milet therefrom,  passing through Hhent and Antwerp  and thence Into Holland. Further to  the southeast it tht Sambre whloh  joint the Mouse at Namur. Further  eatt along the Heute it Liege. Ten  or twelve milet northeast of Liege  the Heute enters Holland. There an  nine provinces. Brabant, in whioh are  tituated Brussels and Louvain, it. the  mott populous and lies between the  Scheldt and the Meute.  Population  Before the outbreak ot the war the  pom-lotion waa about 7,600,000, 68it  per square mile. Compare thit with  ehe following: Englanh and Wales.  270; Austria 226; Switzerland 214;  668; Holland 406; Italy 293; German*  Franre, 191'; Denmark, 161; Hun"  154. The moat populous province was  Brabant with 1,078 per square mile,  followed by last Flanders (Ghent)  931; Hainaut (Mom) 830, aod Antwerp, 813. Most of the people were  living north and northwest of tbe  Meute. Belgium wat the most densely  populated oountry of. Europe. The  oopulation it gbout equally divided  between those in the north eoe  Flemish and those in the south speaking Frenoh, There is a clear line between theee two classes except in  Brussels where both are found.  The Frenoh peasant literally lives on  the land ho tilb, Waving the- village  to offioials, the cure and industrial  workmen; while tbe Walloon live, in  the viuags and goes to and fro to  farm hit land.  Transportation  A small nortion of the north lies  below sea level, reclaimed by dykes.  There it a large number of small  rivers and ttreamt which have been  improved into canals which for use  rank next to those of Holland. In  1407 there were .2,859 miles of steam  railway, or over 30 miles ?cr every  100 square milet. Belgium lor itt size  gad the mott complete railway service  of any oountry in the world. The  railways own the ca'nals and the nation  owns and operates practically the entire mileage af railway.. Kates were  low and the people well cored for. It  wat possible to buy a railway ticket  on which one oould travel on any railway in Belgium for two weeks (any  distanre) at follows: lit olatt, $12.00;  2nd olatt 18.00: 3rd olatt, 14.70.  For every mile of itandard railway  Belgium hat at least one mile of light  railway (39i inoh gauge). In 1908  the total length wat 2,586 miles, witb  half at muoh more then under consideration. The state, province and  commune unite in their construction.  They are cheaply constructed and the  expenditure ii spread over ninety  vears. Passengers end nroduce of all  kinds are hauled- at low rates. Belgian) agrioulture hot profited bv -oil  roods, canals, standard railways and  light railways.  Occupation!  For centuriee the Flemish peasants  grew Haa and homemade linens were a  product of the form. Coal and iron  are both found in Central Belgium.  The great matt of the people are engaged in railroading, textile and tht  manufacture of clothing, mining, metal working, glass and pottery making,  furniture manufacture and building  and tne preparation of foods. Thit  industrial population ii spread through  oentral Belgium. Oheap and convenient transportation faoil'tiet enable  the artisani to live on the land and  thereby ossitt io food production,  Waits are low, but everybody works  and tht oott of living is comparatively low. While tht agricultural population net bean increasing in reotnt  yean, the industrial population hat  bttn increasing more rapidly. It it  difficult to draw the line exaotly between tho agricultural population and  the industrial, but it may be itated  that the former it bom 20 to 26 per  oentf, of tht whole. Wt are not far  astray in laying that it it almost 30  percent.  Agrioulture  Belgium originally wat a oountry of  poor toil. Of itt eeven and a quarter  million acres, about two-thirds or four  and three quarter million ocrei are  cultivated. About ninety per cent., oi  the farmer, work from one to ten  aore.. A large number of artiiani  have small garden plots. The few  large farms are generally made up of  disconnected plott, many of which are  looted. Tht principal agricultural import! are grains, doiry products, live  ���took and eggt, to whioh mav be added hth and beer. The priooioal exports  are horses, vegetables, fruits, sugar,  and prepared foods. According to  Rowntree the average net imports over  exports of agricultural nrbduoe per  head of population for the five >oors  1901-1905 was at follows: Btlirium,  ���11.00; France 11.00 Germany 14.50;  .United Kingdom 119.60. Denmark's  eSportt of the tome over imports'were  118.60 per bead.

Solatia!'v., ht his work da  Ftqrs Bearer for  Her NeutraHly  Land  of  Dykes   it   Suffering Heavily  From Great War  Holland it learning in thit war time  the disadvantages of being a neutral  oountry, says a London correspondent  in Holland.  - Perhaps the advantages are at embarrassing at tbe disadvantage.. Witb  war all around her, the hat become a  nlace ot refuge, a clearing house for  telegrami and letter, that cannot pass  direct from- England to Germany, a  common platform on whioh sun  whom countriet are in bitter enmity  may meet on the term, of old friendship.  Her neutrality hat made the arriral  within her southarn frontier of German or Belgian soldieri, flying from  their reipeotive enemies, a rather  trying form of enforced hospitality.  A concentration camp at AlkanuaS  has its nucleut of mm from'both  armies, and thnt lithe oonitont fear  that thie involuntary hospitality may  lead to international oomplioations.  No wonder that little Holland ii  massing her troops to drive baek ths  soldieri, who, in tht ht.t of flight  from battle seek to be her guettt-  But Holland it paying tht priot,  It ii not for nothing that a little  nation, with millions less people than  London, put over 400,000 men under  arms. At all oottt she will fight fox  her independence, and among these  stolid silent people there is never a  murmur at the sacrifice. It Is not  only the men who hove been oalled to  the colors and the families that are  left without breadwinners who are  nnving the prioe.  All over Holland, men and women  ore bemo- turned out of doors, and  teeing their homes milled down because the building., set up under the  shadow of forts, interfere with the  all round rarnre of the guns.  The correspondent Bays: "I met a  man who -hod diea^-cred from Amr  sterdam for a couple of days. He  told me quietly that he had been ir'.  the country south of here to see bnw,  his old oarents were petting on. Thev  were farmers. Suddf-n'y at midnight  tney and their neighbors hod notice  thot within an hour their homes must  he nulled down. Imacine what it  meant, in the ruin end darkness, to  ">ack all the household iwiods on cart?  to drive horses and cattra a. War 'the  narrow road that tons the dvke, and  to find the best shelter that o-n "--  had at a safe distance from the forts."  tsmVamvrm  mmmmmmmmmTfm  Almost every prominent British tennis player known to the followors of  international matches in the United  States is enrolled in some branch of  His Majesty's service.  Land and Labor (Macmillan & Co.,  1911) attributes it largely to "her  light railway system, her methods of  agricultural operation, and tht  meant taken to educate her farmers."  "The three molt striking facts in connection with Belgian agriculture at  the present time are, .firstly, ita intensity; secondly, the marked decline in  the cultivation of oereals for human  consumption, notable wheat; and  thirdly, the great development of oattle breeding."  Belgium's experience for the pott  thirty years should be of tome use  to us in Canada as we ore planning the  development of our agrioulture. Muoh  of her work bat been twept away with  her rjeoole during the "est three  months. While we are sympathizing  with her and taking tome small thore  in assisting her in her national1 affliction, it is well that we should know  something of the way in which she developed a rich agriculture out ot a  poor soil. With her cool and iron"  mines, her highlv cultivated plains, her  complete transportation equipment and  her seaports, she would be a treat  prize. There are reasons other than  those of military strut" - why the  treaty of 1839 should be considered  more than a mere "sorao of paper."

Printed Butter  rappers  '"THE new Dominion regulations require all farmers who sell butter  to the stores or privately, to have it  properly covered with a printed  wrapper with the words "DAIRY  BUTTER " appearing in prominent  letters upon it.  Read the following:  BUTTER REGULATIONS  The "Canadian Grocer" oalled the  attention of those interested in the  butter- trade to the legislation which  went into effect on the 1st of Ootober,  1914 regarding the necessity for all  butter in packages or wrapped in  parchment being labelled "Doiry Butter." Another word may a-,t be  amiss. This means that no dairy butter can be bought or sold in plein  wrappers or unbranded pockajros. No  butter can be bought or fold under  brand of separator. The words ''Diiiry  Butter" must aopear on the YW-muer  or package in letters at least a quarter or an inch square. It might pnuin  be emphasized also that all butter in  prints must be of the full not weight  of 16 ounces. The rjenalty undor the  act is a fine of from 810 lo 130 for  each offence.  This new legislation it will lie noted  applies as well to the person buyinj  as the person selling and therefore affects everybody engaged in all branches of tho trade. Grocers will do very  woll to bring the matter to the attention of anv butter makers who may  still be bringing in their proaluct in  plain ��� wrappings. Whey butter must  be so labelled even when mixed with  dairy butter and dairy butter retains  its "labol" though it be mixed with  the creamery product.

The rau.k'inir  cost approximately $10,000, and with  the exception of $2,500, which it was  found necessary to raise by way of  mortgage, wag all paid ;for. Tho entire furnishings, costing upwards of  91,800 had been most n-enerouslv given  bv the Ladies Hospital Aid, The l"i un  try (lirls Aid, and the ladies whose  wards bear their names, betides nun  who haadldonated the very iiue pqnip-  incnt this hospital Possesses.

Tho directors have two *>\ their  number inspect tho hospital ut least  unco overv week, and a written Itnnrt  is made of lho result pf thoir visit.  Their roport is discussed at the  monthly meetings and whero practicable, their suggestions aro acted upon. Whero anv of their .iiiggostions  oall for immediate action, the score-  tun- either had these suggestions curried out, or oalled the executive board  together, for'- their instructions,   i  As a means for preventing -tbii visiting committee from bein, merely n  formal office the members w?rc (-banged  each three months, and ha thought anybody who lias visitod the hospital during the last year would acknowledge the  work the committee had dono In keeping the hosnital up to its stuto of  efficiency.  Certain statements had been miide to  the directors that it was use!.as to  make complaints as thoy wore always  "hushed up". This statement was absolutely and emphatically unti-'io. uny  complaints made have always been  must thoroughly investigated; and  further, tho directors caused I o bo published in tho local papers a icuiest  that anyone having any oomolnint to  make about the hospital would immediately communicate with oitho: the  secretary or the direotors.  Another statement recently mado was  that more care should bo taken 'n collecting marges duo by patients. "I  think this is true,, Slid Mr.  Hewetson, "because I think v. c fan  never be too careful, but from the  Vary nature of the hospital, we must  inevitably have a large number ,il accounts that can never be paid. In  some cases when these patioots enter  the hospital, the direotors know their  accounts will never be paid. Would  the people who make these statements  have us refuse theso patients?    1   do  not think so. Do these same critics  give generously to the hospitul? We  do not find it so."  The directors feel, c> ntinued  tho president that thoy should  havo more suppore from the conunan-  ity. It waB easy to critioise, very eoiy  to find fault, still easier to iijton to  Illinois, easiest of all to ,-ofuse to  Pause to consider the very groat difficulties that confront the directors in  managing an institution 0f thii kind.  Weeks have passed with only two or  three patients, and then suddenly the  hospital would be filled, coasi��4.iently  it must alwaye be kept in a high state  of efficiency. Owing to great ecnicity  of money they had beem compelled to  reduce the stall", gnd as a result many  times the matron and nurtet nave had  to work night and day with only a  few hours rest, yet they had never  even suggested that they were being  worked unreasonably hard. At best,  the life of a hospital nurse wai far more  exacting and wearying than most people imagine, and he thought we should  show our appreciation oitener than we  do of the way our nurtet are working,  and the splendid way thov .-ilways litt  to any emergency that is nut unon  them.  "In spite of aU the direotors can do  to keep down expenses, and the lojal  way we are being helped by a few  people, we are faoed with great difficulties thit coming year. Uusbandi,  brothers, sons, are away fighting Ior  the existence ot the British Empire,  willingly giving their lives for our  country. Must we lag so for behind  that we won't even givt g little help  and sympathy to those who are trying to make a time ol sickness a little  easier to thoir lest fortunate brethienf  Ue mott earnestly appealed to every  one who had not io far inturctted  themselves, to do something, low-  ever small, for lhe hospital in thit  coming yoar.  At the concluiion oi the president's  report Hr. F. A. Taylor drew attention to the referenot to oomnlainti  and rumon whloh had bttn in croula-  tion lately aad itated that If anyone  had anv oomplainti to make t*>o/ had  better take the opportunity of doing  so now. Ee ttronvlv depreoattd tbe  tendency to liiten to streot taU instead ot going to tha dirMto/i themselves.  Hrs. B. B. Kerr thereupon  took up the oudgels and a tomewlaat  lengthy and more or less warm iiiicm-  sion ensued 'na various detaili ot hospital management. While she laid  she intended no disnaragement ot the  present nursing staff, the thought that  moro care should be used in their ap-  Dolntment. No matron or nurse  should be anoointed without having  first ascertained their qualifiogtlona,  and that thev had had proper training  in their duties. She thought that by  communicating with the Viotoria Order of Nurses, most competent and ex-  nerienced nurtes could be obtained who  had onssed through a standard codo  of training. Another luppettion wat  that ell medicine oupboardt be kept  locked, at the did not think it light  or late in some canes that patienti  should have access to the drugs. She  asked a good manv auoitiont illative  to the    fire protection orrangementi'  and thought that regular fixe drills  should be held. A further point ot  criticism was in the- amount a f noise  which was permitted in the hospital.  This should-be kept to a minimum by  notices Posted where all omili read  them.  Mr. G. 8.
