Telegrams continue  to pour in at intervals but for the  most part these are mere guesses at  tht real state of affairs. The tile-.  I graph and telephone serviocs of Europe are praotioally aU in the hands  of tht various powers, and the censorship exorcised is so striot that lit-  the inlormgtion is allowed to leak  out as to movements of the armies or  navies involved in the conflict.!  From the mass of contradictory material which is being passed around it  ill difficult to sift out muoh, wnich  boars ths stamp ol truth.  The ultimatum sent to Germany by  the British government to respect ths  neutrality ol Belgium expired at midnight Tuesday, and on Wednesday definite news was received that both  Germany and England had declared  war.  In a statement made in the Houss  of Commons Tuesday Premier Asquith  stated that Sir Edward Grey had sent  to the British ambassador in Berlin  a telegram informing him ol the appeal ol King Albert ol Belgium lor  diplomacy intervention. He proceedVd  toi state that Belgium has categorically refused to sanction the flagrant violation ol tlio "Law ol Nations" aod  [announced that the German govern-.  ment had been asked to give satialao  lory reply by midnight on the quon-  tion ol Belgium neutrality.  "The British government," said Pre  wier Asquith, "had repotted,, Uiat  the neutrality of Belgium be respeottt,  by Germany and has asked an immediate reply.

The Germans  stood the French off for an hour, but their ammunition waa finally  exhausted and those who were left had to turrender. The German  commander blew hit brains out rather than yield his sword. At  veileticot the Germane created the border three timet but were  repulsed.  The Britith Parliament haa voted $525,000,000 for war purpote,  which it ettimated to last for six weeks.  ^��n.any_ie reported to have seized all islands off Finland and  defeated the Ruttian fleet in those walen.  Canada ia raiting 20,000 for service abroad and these will proceed across the Atlantic at the earliest possible date.  A bill was introduced into the German Imperial Parliament this  week providing the the approprialion of $1,250,000,000 to meet the  expenses of the war.  President Wilton hat issued n proclamation of neutrality.  Martial law has been proclaimed throughout England.  The Canadian militia frustrated an attempt on the part of German  sympathisers to blow up th? Will rid ciaal.  Premier Asquith yesterday nnnounced that the British government  would ask for another credit of $500,000,000. It was officially stated  that Viscount Morley and John Burnt had retigned from the cabinet.  Reginald McKenna. the home tecretary, hat announced that  twenty-one spies had been arrested in the British Islet during the past  twenty-lour hours, chiefly in important naval centres.

Continuing, the Premier ssid that  Germany had assured Belgium that it  would compensate her lor any dam-  age whioh it might suffer by. march ot  troops across Belgian territory.  "The British government oan not  regard this as in any way satislao-  tory. We must protect Belgium's neutrality to prevent what means to her  quest ian of life or death, the advance of troops through Belgium"  said the Premier.  Germany had declared war on  Ruttia some days ago after en ultimatum regarding the latter'a intentions in mobilising her troops.  At toon aa war between Great  Britain and Germany waa announced the flood of telegramt wat aud-  denly stopped and only the mott  meagre reports ate allowed to pass.  The inlensest excitement prevails as to the whereabouts of the  British fleet which sailed out under  sealed orders and which hat not  been heard of since except in vague  telegrams which apparently throw  very little light upon it. Reports  were received earlier in the week  of a great naval engagement in the  North Sea in which seven German  vettelt were supposed to have  been sunk and two British.  Two German foreet are converging front tee eatt in t(ie direction of the French capital. German  troops crossed the frontier into  France near the village of Cirey  between Nancy and Straasburg,  and are reported repulsed with  heavy lott.  Military observers believe -the  German plan it to altemyt to van-  quiah France in the interval before Russia will be able to create  serious trouble on her northern  frontier. It is tuppoted complete  Russian moblization will take three  weeks.

The German army is reported to have been repulsed with heavy  losses at Liege by lhe Belgians.  Italy hat refuted Germany's requett to go to her aid and haa  repeated her determination to remain neutral.  Vague rumours have repeatedly come to hand of a great naval  engagement in the North Sea off the coasts of England and Scotland.  POULTRY   ASSOCIATION.

Through the fast that tht telephone  service was not   working, and    tha  much valuable time wat lott in summoning the fire brigade, a fire   which  broke out soon alter midday last Sunday in a barn and workshop   to the  rear ol Mr. M. J. Curts' house on Bernard avenue, very nearly became     a  much greater disaster. The barn whioh  was a large one and hemmed In by a  number of stables, ebioken bouses and  other buildings, was completely    destroyed, and only the strenuous efforts  of tbe neighbors who got   busy    at  well as thoy oould with garden    hose  to protect surrounding buildings, prevented a vory serious conflagration.  A sad feature of the fire was     the  burning to death ol a horse, belonging to Mr. Curts.    At the .time    the  lire was discovered by Mr. W. T. Pitt  who lives next door, the flames   had  [almost surrounded the poor brute and  it was impossible to get near to cut  loose tho rope which held it in    its  stall.   The screams and frantlo plunging ol the unfortunate animal before  it finally succumbed to suffocation by  smoke   will   long be rememberod    by  those who were there.  In addition to the horse some scores  of   chickens and rabbits were   burned  | before   they could be released  Tho origin of tho fire is not oertuin,  but it seems to be ihe   opinion    of  those who    wero on the scone     first  that   it   started in the loft when   a  [quantity    of hay was stored.     From  there it broke through the floor Into  the stable near the door,  thus shutting off any chauoe of getting out the  | horse.  From there    it spread baok, taking  an ice house     and a wood shod   anil  reaching the rear ol Mr. Curts' houso.  In tho other direction it readied Mr.  T. Pitt's house.   Tbo brigade arrived  however in rflhe tu' save any serious  demage to the two houses, though in  the meantime the furniture had   been  taken out.  Burning shingles flying around eaus-  led considerable anxiety for a     time,  |and several    small fires wore started  from these, but  fortunately extinguish  [ed in time.  In the Impossibility of getting an  alarm through by telephone, Mr. Leslie Dilworth went in his oar to th  power house and gave it in personally  FuHy twenty minutes elapsed between  tht first discovery ot tht fin and the  arrival of the brigade.  Tht lost it estimate*! ai about $1080  none ol whioh, unfortunately is  covered by insurance. Rebuilding ���>������  already bttn ormmsnred,  Body Recovered Early on  Sunday Morning  A tad drowning accident took place  last Saturday in whioh xttle Tommy  Stewart, the seven-year-old ton of Mt.  J, A. Stewart, baker, lost bis lite.  Exactly how tbe poor little fellow  ame to be drowned it not known, but  his body was found near the Sawmill  Co.'s wharf and it is surmised that  he had fallen in while fishing.  Early Saturday morning he left his  home, along with hia brother, and  from the stories of his playmates who  were examined ai the inquest Monday  afternoon it appean that he was lust  seen Saturday afternoon, playing On  tho Sawmill whurl and on th. steamer "Orchard City," belonging to the  Sawmill Company. Aooordlng tn theil  story the other boys left him there  during tbe afternoon and never taw  him again.  It ia a common thing for boys at  this time of the year to fish at that  spot, though the practice is attended  with some danger as there iB no protecting rail around the wharf and  moreover tho youngsters are not oon-  t.-tit to stay on the wharf, but are  in the habit of jumping to and from  the boat. It is supposed that whils  attempting to do this he had misted  his footing and fallen between tha boat  and the wharf.        i  No particular anxiety was felt about  Tommy's absence from home until  supper time, and ai he did not arrive  lor that meal, his lather and others  et out to search for him. Tho neighborhood ol thc wharf and lumbar sheds  wore scoured until long alter dark  but without avail. Ib  It was on Sundgy morning about  I a.m., that Nick Avender, the night  watchman at the mill, who had been  made aware ol tbe boy's disappearance, happened tn Jook over the side  of the whart when ho caught sight ol  a white object, whion upon investigation proved to be the body ot the  little fellow lying between the bow of  he boat and the filling of the wharf.  Ho took the body out ol the water,  and summoned night constable Gibb,  who at once communicated the shocking discovery to the distressed father.  The remains wen removed to the undertaking parlon of Mr. Minns.  An inquest was held Monday afternoon, the    jury giving . verdict     oi  'accidental    drowning."    Immediately  after the inquest    the funeral     took  plate.  Tha greatest sympathy is felt     Ior  [the boy's parents.

But thnt day is not yet, am}  here wo are in the thick of what prom  ises to he tho bloodiest war the worloj'  has ever seen.  So sudden has been the calamity, so  rapid the course of events in which?  diploimicy has broken down and beon  thrown to the winds, and so overwhelming tho magnitude of tho straggle which has commenced that the  mind fails to grasp what is the meaning ol it all.  When we rend only a few weeks ago  of the assassination of the heir to tht  Austrian throne, thc affair vat dismissed as only another ot those outbreaks of fanaticism, which wo hate  long become accustotnod to in tho  troubled soa of European politios. VY'.io  could have foreseen that it was but  tho first spluttcrings of a fuse which  would set the world on Urn?  Even tho announcement o? Aus'ria't  ultimatum to Sprvia, and subsequent  hasty declaration of war, .id net  at first seem to bear suoh a tremendous significance. It was not intil  Germany began to show her hand and  to evince whnt to us at this dVfmoe  seems like tho most amazing eager-  noss for a trial ol strength, did tho  world awake to find iiself on tho verge  ol tho long dreaded "European war."  Tho ambitions ol Germany lor military and naval supromary in  Europe have become too obvious to bo  longer doubted and the only feasible  explanation of hor conduct in impatiently brushing aside nil attempts at  mediation is that sho must have lolt  that tho hour had -onto ici hr to  reglizo those ambitions.

Many ol the  hens began laying two eggs daily.

' V)   i  The ninth annual report ol tbe Provincial Game and Forest Warden, Mr.  A. Bryan Williams, has just been issued from the government printing office. It contains an exhaustive explanation of the reasons which actuated  the government in enacting the new  amendment, making it compulsory for  e.erybody who carries firearms to  take out a license. Apropos ol the  fact that tho Game Act has again  been tbe source of many Complaints,  tho important announcement ie made  that an entirely new aot haa bean  drafted, whioh, it is hoped will bo  bu more Satisfactory and intelligible  to the general public.  In the, question ol licensee tor Carrying firearms.   "It is to be regretted",  says the report, "that many ol the issuers of licenses took   little    or    no  trouble to  inquire into the eligibility  of tho   poople   applying   lor     them.  Thorc is no doubt that a good many  were    issued   to boys under    sixteen  years ol ngo without the request     ol  their parents;  "also the free licenses  issued to the farmers and prospectors  were given to many people who    .had  no right to them.    The section ol th]  act with regard to these lioenses needs  amending.   At the present time    any  body with a tree miner's license   can  demand a free firearms lioenae and it  lias to be issued, though it may    bu  vory obvious to the issuer that he   '.a  not a prospector    at all. Free    prospectors' licenses should only be issued  for the district intended to be    i-rof I  pected, and also ior limited    periods,  it this were done it would be possible'  to    refuse    the barristers,     totelttt'n,'  merchants, etc. who have minors' li J  censes simply for the sake of   holding:  mining rights, many of. whom irobab-;  ly shoot for sport on their fi jo    li-!  censes. j  "With the   introduction of   the gun'  licence there   havo been demands   for;  more game wardens from every distri it I  in the province.   Some moi-'e aro cei  talnly needed, but it all the   requests I  were complied with about treble   laat  year's appropriation would be needed J  There is no doubt, however. that some  districts without* deputies ahould have  them, and one; or two need additional  men, particularly so ia thia the oase on  Vancouver Island.  At the present time  apart Irom   the offioe staff, there ar  twenty-six permanent salaried deputies  and with dose   on to 40,000   licena,  issued, taking Indians into consideration as wdl, the average number    c  men shooting to each deputy will ar>  proximate 2,000.   Ot course, there art  a lew specials put on at timea,    and  the    provincial and    munioipal polise  have given a great deal ol help, Mr  ticularly so in onioning the hunting license.   That the taws have bean    enforced, as well as they have by    than  lew men speaks well lor the work they  have done.    There is, however,    still  room lor improvement aod a few more  permanent men would make a vast dii  terence.

Thus  Alexander ol Servia, is one ol the  youngest European sovereigns. Ha is  a beepootaoled, well built young man  with a studious and refined tcmpiru  ment that commands respect regardless of his rank and position, and was  popular as a prince among the S��  vian people, and was educated in St-  Petersburg, where hia eyes and ourr  were always kept open for ideas and  reforms in his own country. But dee  pite his popularity in some quartets  there is much dissatisfaction among  certain classes in Servia, and 'the path  ot the young monaroh is not apt to hi  a rosy one. The estimated popula  ti'an ol Servia ia 3,800,000, which ia  loss than that ol a number of individual American states, The civil Hat is  1325,000 and the army consists ol oi,  000 on-a peace footing, 308,000 reserves, and 340,000 as a total wat  strength. Servia recently came in lor  some severe criticism for her attitude  in the Balkan troubles, and her population is rather heterogeneous, considering the site ol'the oountry.

Members of the Aoademiq  Franeaise, in reply to a question tiom  the Paris Figaro, have declared themselves in favor of this living photography in the schools of France.

N.B.��� Unauthorized   publication    of  this advertisement will not be paid for  Some consternation was caused    at  Sea Ofctor Cove, near Bella Coola, tho  other day by a cougar attacking tho  10 year old son of Mr.  Frederiokson.  [The   monster came out of   the   bush  to the beach and sprang at tbe  boy, who in the ensuing- struggle was  Scratched  and  mauled rather    badly,  but was, however, saved from further  harui by the    appearance of   several  I persons attracted to the scene by   the  cries.     The    cougar vanished for     a  time, but roappeared some hours   later, staying in    tho    vicinity of    Mr.  Froderickson's house for quite a   long  whilo���probably iu the expectation of  some youthful and easy prey.    There  is a growing alarm in tho    neighborhood and    residents are taking    precautionary  measures far    tho protection of tho children.  At a cost of only ��135,000, and by  menus of a stall numbering about 2,-  000,000 persons,',   a general census   of  India    was    taken    on tbe   night ol  March 10, 1911,    the results,of whioh  aro embodied in a large volume issued by tho India office as a blue book.  The dilTiculty of taking a census nf a  population numbering about 300,000,-  OOO.over an area of  1,803,657 square  miles, were onormous.   They were   es,  pooially   great   owing, as tho   report  puts it, ''to the~long lines of railway  tho big rivovs on which the boats travel somo times for days without coming to the banks, the forests to whioh  woodcutters r6sort_often for weeks at  a time, and the numerous sacred   pilgrims."   i'eoplo had to  be enumerated  wherever thoy woro caught.   In     the |  case of railways,  for / instance,     all  persons travelling by rail    who   took,  tickets   irfter 7 p.m., on the night of  tho census were enumerated either oa  the platforms or    in the trains.    The  latter were all stopped at   6 a.m.   on  tho following morning in order to include tiny travellers who up till then  had    escaped     notice.    The summary  iablos show that tho total population'  of India (including native Btates)   vu  lho night   mentioned was 315,135,306,  ns against 294,361,05(1 ten years pro  vinusly, of whom 21,586,891 were Hin-  aloos,  66,li47,'29!l woro Moslems,     10,-  721.153  wero    Budhists  and 3,876,203  were    Christians.
