A flint To Our Towns

truths. ���
Trees and flowers. beautiful home**, will) attractive surroundings, are,.says
thi* paper, to be found in practically every farming district in the West, but
the towns ami villages are lagging far behind tind most cf them are becoming
uglier and more hideous with the years. l.npainted stores, un.ittractive
shacks In many cases to begin with, ramshackle out buildings ancl sheds,
<!own-at-the-heoLs feuces ;md weedy, neglected gardens;���how many of the
country towns in tiie West answer this description?.
The word picture sketched by this farm paper is by no means overdrawn.
While Ihe cities, and farmers by lhe thousands, have gone in extensively for
tlie planting or trees and the beautifying of the surroundings in which ihe
people pass (heir lives, very few towns and villages have made any effort to
make them attractive. -Most, of them present the appearance of a group
of squatters' huts, .occupied hy transients, having no intention of remaining
permanently and establishing real homes, but expeetiug to move on. They
give' the impression of. "boom" oil and mining towns where anything is good
���enough for the time being until the boom bursts and Ihe town dies.
Country roads are frequently butter than these town and village streets
-with their gutters overgrown with grass and weeds, and with backyards and
ianos common dumping grounds for refuse and junk -of all kinds. ln such
���surroundings it is liule wonder that veiy soon store windows remain unwashed tuid in a generally unkempt, untidy, dirly condition. * A city store which
presented the same indications of sloth would drive away rather than invite
customers. Vet many town and village merchants wonder why peoplo pass
their doors to trade elsewhere.
Complain! is also voiced because of thi; diHic-iilly of obtaining and relain-
_ing the services of ipialifted  lielp in  ihese smaller communities.      But why
.should any self-respecting, ambitious young man or woman settle down to
spend their lives in a (own or village where the people hick even suflieient on-

No Other Country Honors Dead Like
England ;
-.Not far from the main lino ol! travel
to Paris and' tho south of Franco,
among the sand dunes of '(Staples, are
buried 11,00) Engliuli soldiers. This;
one of the largest JSnglish cemeteries
in France, is visited every day by

average was, insuflicient, ill-balanced
and monotonous, he said; cooking
lelt much to be desired, and the quality of food supplies was open to grave
suspicion. He attributed much ol
the dyspepsia, gaslro-intoslinal disease and intestinal lethargy fo the
tendency of people to live ou preserved loods.
"Our' chemists," he added, "have

a sense almost the grealest slayers ot

Wonderful Features At
���y.. ^ Leipsic Exhibition
Huge Underground Hall Considered
Technical World's Wonder
The coming- Leipsic fair, to be held
from August 30 to September 9, promises to surpass any previous Leipsic
exhibition. It is expected the attend-*,
a&ce win be nearly double that of the
spring-fair, at which there were more
-than. 180,000 business men from all
parts of the world, with 1-4,000 exhibitors from 18 countries. .
One ot the features of the coming
fair will be the huge underground
exhibition / hall, generally considered a' technical world's wonder. . Another prominent feature will bo. the
machinery hall, conceded to be tht>
largest exhibition hall in Germany. It
occupies an area of 21,000 square
meters. The old house for electro-
technics has been materially enlarged by two wings each two stories
high. In order to furnish the necessary space for the erection of a number of new exhibition buildings, the
municipality of Leipsic has placed a
further area of 130,000 square meters
at the disposal of the administrators
of,the.fair. This permits sufficient
space, foi; the construction of a special
freight station.
Tliere is also a plan on foot to have
���foreign firms display-their exhibits in
special halls in a "Street of Nations."
��� The magnitude of fhe Leipsic fuir
has made division into two sections
necessary, "The General Sample Exhibit" *md "The Technical and Constructive Kxhibit." The latter exhibition will contjnue tour days longer
than the former and will bc arranged in 15 halls. The "Sample Exhibition" will be-contained in 80 halls and
special "buildings.

Beaver Strategy
How Thes�� Cunning Animals Circumvented Well Laid Plans of Man
Among the most interesting of tho
smaller mammals, and, also typically
Canadian, is the beaver, whoso intelligence, industry and engineering ability have pointed many a moral and
adorned many a tale. The latest
story Illustrating these qualities .is
told by A. Derieux iu the American
Magazine and makes good reading. Incidentally it may strengthen the sentiment that it would be a decided loss
to Canadian wild life were these capable "woodmen,"'builders and strategists permitted to disappear from our
forests and rivers.
The .'bearers of the Bronx Zoo inhabit a beautiful spot with a lake,
where they have a dam/and a house
that they have built themselves. They
work in unison; two cut down a tree
and drag it to thc dam; two others
are engaged in actual construction,
and one or more, the bricklayers or
plasterers, daub the chinks with mud.
Now the space allotted to them at
(he zoo is large; they occupy a whole
valley. Tae only sign of captivity
is tho ,fenc�� that surrounds the lake
and the valley; the fence is of iron
stakes and is set in a concrete base
embedded Jeep in the ground, so that
the animals cannot dig" under il. At
the end of the lake grows a large oak-
tree, near wnich tho lence runs. There,
becauso of the roots of the trees, the
concrete was not poured very deep;

A village boy was dressed up to

from the district town to investigate
the peasants' troubles, which were
