from defects in the action of the

Selected  Colonies
Lt.-Col. George McLaren Brown,
the .Luropcan manager of the C.P.
R.. writes to the "TarilT Reformer

urging a comprehensive scheme l>3r
which the returned soldiers could bo
placed on the land in so far as they
desired il���a scheme by which lands
closed to the public would be fully
opeued up���not a few parcels of land
such as 'Acre noticed in the press,
and which would not give a square
foot to all who might seek this
means of settlement, but a plan by
which J.iigc numbers could bc accommodated on tlie lands in the
mother country. Mr. Hroy.u refers
to the plan of ihe C.P.R.. which
ofti_r> improved farms, in selected
colonies, v. ilh diaiinciivc military
names, improved by the company;
aud assisled colonization farms of
320 acres each, selected by Ihe intending settler, and then improved
bv him with assistance from the
company. Ip.asy terms of payment
are offend, carried over twenty years
but the point that Mr. Brown insists
on is that il is not peopie. out of the
workhouse that Canada wants, because such are not desired in the Dominion, but people who arc likely to
succeed. He urges that the. whole

Boy Scout Notes
Boy   Scouts    Receive    Awards    for
Saving Life
His Excellency the Duke of Devonshire, as chief Scout for Canada,
lias been pleased to award the following medals:
Silver Crosses: Troop Leader Phillip A. DuMoulin; Patrol Leader Godfrey K Groves; Second Leonard DuMoulin; Scout John D, Groves, all
of Kelowan, B.C.
For rescuing a boy who had broken through the ice on Okanagan lake
on March 2, 1917. The rescue was
effected with imminent risk to all
four boys who showed remarkable
resource and intelligence.
Patrol Leader Frank B. Johnston
of Toronto, who rescued a young
lady from drowning in the Scugog
river near Lindsay, Ont. Johnston,
who is only fifteen years of age,
brought the young lady ashpre from
weeds and after a struggle.
Scout Ralph Brownell of Toronto,
who assitcd in rescuing a man from
Lake Muskoka.
In the latter two awards His Excellency the Chief Scout, personally
made presentations at the provincial
rally last week at the national exhibition at Toronto.
Gilt Medal of Merit: Scout Andrew I.oste.r, of Balcarrcs, Sask., who
on the 19th of March, 1917, fought
fire with exceptional coolness and
judgment by shovelling snow and
passing buckets of water.
Lloyd George has given the following message to the Boy Scouts association: "I feel much encouraged to
think that any words I may have
spoken should bc the means of helping on the Boy Scout movement. It
is perhaps only since the beginning
of the war, during these three years
of constant drain upon the manhood
of our nation, that wc have come to
realize the great value of the movement which your chief inaugurated
six years before. We all now see the
meaning of the motto represented by
the initials B.P., and which the association has lived up to with such
sincerity and success.
"I do not think I am exaggerating,
when I say that the young boyhood
of our country, represented by the
Boy Scouts association, shares the
laurels for having been prepared
with the old and trusted and tried
British army,, and navy. For both
proved their title to make the claim
when tlie_ great war broke upon us
like a thief in the night. It is no
small matter to be proud of that the
association was able within a month
of the outbreak of the war to give
the most intelligent and energetic
help in all kinds of service. When
the boyhood of a nation can give such
practical proofs of its honor, straight-
ness and loyally, there is not much
clanger of that nation going under,
for those boys are training to render
service to their country as leaders in
all walks of life in the future.
"[ can only say to all sections of
the movement. Old Scouts and New
Scouts, Scout officers and Patrol
Leaders, ffo forward; stick to it to
the end."

The "Oversea Tongue"
The Numerous Dialects as Found in
My comment otr the English ��pok-
rn by oversea troops brings mc an
interesting letter from a Canadian
Scot. "Canada," he points out, "is a
vast melting-pot of all nationalities,
and as a rule these di He rent races,
when they come to the country, live
in communities, from which they
gradually drift away���I speak, of
course, of those settling on the land.
The native Canadian never gives the
subject a thought, as it applies to
all, from the Galician to the Scot;
but since your question refers to the
latter, let us consider him a moment,
and wc will see that he does not always remain "Scotch." Go to Glengarry in Ontario, and you will find
it more Scotch than many parts ' ol
Scotland. Gaelic is freely spoken in
some districts, and many of the older people speak indifferent English.
Parts of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, a thousand miles eaSl.

Enemy Leaving no Food in Evacuated  Region For  Use
of the Allies
Germany's latest effort at sucking"
dry every inch of the invaded region
of France before she is obliged to
evacuate them has just come to light
in the discovery that the canals and
rivers of northern France are being
seined lifeless of eatable fish.
The discovery was only made
when the French recently undertook
the task of rendering these waterways navigable after the German
destruction of bridges, locks, embankments and barges,
The necessity of" draining dry
many of the canals and portions of
river beds rendered unusable by the
Germans has brought to light the
numerous fish traps, seines, barriers
and other appliances used by the
Germans in order to catch absolutely every fish. Frequently the canals
and rivers are divided up into sections with barriers across each end
in order to render impossible the escape of a single fish. Evidence has
also been found of the use of explosives for stunning the fish and bringing them lo the surface where they
were raked in with hand nets.
Previous to the German invasion
the canals, rivers and waterways
of France had been brought to a
high state of fish productiveness
both by slocking them and by the
enforcement of practical law3 regarding fishing. The idea was to
keep the productiveness of these
streams up lo their highest pitch at
all times. River fishing constituted
one of the very important industries
of the country, and a careful observance of the fishing laws inspired
the permanency of the river stocks.
The one idea dominating the Germans appears to have been to make
certain that after their evacuation
it would be years before the French
would again be able to restock the
rivers and canals to their former

The nerve system is the governing
system of the whole body, controlling ^ the heart, lungs, digestion ancl
brain; so it is not surprising that
nervous disturbances should cause
acute distress. The first stages of
nervous debility are noted by irritability and restlessness, in which
the victims seem to be oppressed by
their nerves. The matter requires
immediate attention, for nothing but
suitable treatment will prevent a
complete breakdown. The victim,
however, ifced not despair for even
severe nervous disorders may be
cured by improving the condition of
the blood. It is because Di: Williams'
Pink Pills actually make new. rich,
blood that this medicine has cured
extreme nervous disorders after all
other treatment had failed. The nerves thrive on the new blood made
by these pills; the appetite improves,
digestion is better, sleeplessness no
longer troubles the former nerve
shattered victim, and life- generally
takes on a cheerful aspect! Every
sufferer from nerve troubles, no matter how slight, should lose no time
in_ giving Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a
fair trial, thus regaining their old-
time hcalih and comfort.
You can get Dr. Williams' Pink-
Pills through auy. dealer in medicine,
or by mail at 50 cents a box or six

Make Discovery
Lead   Caps   Found   iu Shipment   of
Nails to Sweden
Accidental discovery tha! \virc 'lails
in a consignment for Sweden were
covered with lend caps caused the
customs authorities lo hold up a
shipment of 300 cases of the nails.
The smashing of one of the cases
by a passing truck on a Brooklyn
pier led to the discovery. It was
said there was enough lead on each
nail for the manufacture of a rifle
bullet, .and that the application for
shipping license contained no mention of the lead, simply staling that
the case contained wire nails.
The cases had been standing on a
clock for about three weeks. The
investigation will seek to determine
whether the lead was placed on the
nails as a subterfuge to get needed
war material lo Germany or whether
it was there for some legitimate purpose. The lead caps are described
as fitting loosely and easily removable.

Bread Sickness
Is Harassing Germans
Substitute Food Causing an Epidemic
in Many Places
Official admission has been made
in Germany that, owing to the very
bad bread, epidemic bread sickness is
prevalent in many places.
The present war bread becomes
bad very rapidly during hot weather, and-becomes infested with what
is called hay or potato bacteria. The
people are officially informed that
tlie_, best way to prevent the bread
going bad is to "wrap it in linen and
bang, it up as used to- be done with
ham"���of happy memory.
The German authorities are much
concerned about the harvest, and it
is impossible to avoid the conclusion
that the prospects are not so bright
as was anticipated. Early vegetables
have been more of a mirage than a
reality, and the quantities which appeared on the town and city markets
have been so small as to be almost
negligible. The same may be said
of fruit, very little of which found
its way to the shop9 and markets.
Growers held it up, and disposed of
il at high prices to those who cared
to come and fetch it. Potatoes are
still being dealt out in quantities of
two  to three, pounds weekly.
Most of the schools have been
closed to allow the children to work
in the fields, where they are joined
by students from the _ colleges and
universities. The heavier -work is
done almost entirely by women, but
it is greatly hampered by lack of
machines and draught animals. Large
numbers of cows are being used instead of horses and oxen.

The British army has arrived; after two years of a magnificent struggle, against unpreparcdncss, the tendency toward muddle and hard, circumstance it is reaching its pinnacle
of efficiency. Such is the general
impression one brings back now from
that temporarily transplanted England , that occupies northwestern
France. This, the manliest race in
the world, has made its manliness
efficient. The machine-like efficiency
of the German army, which so over^
awed and alarmed us Americans who
saw von Kluck pass through Belgium, is matched and over-matched
now by a less formal, less machine-
like efficiency, all the more effective
because it gives more play for individual intelligence. Above all, there
is magnificent morale���a universal re-

Ibis hard, distressing business

cient money this year to rent the
necessary apparatus for its experiments. The commission is now reviewing the season's work,
The lignite question is of particu*
lar interest because of the fuel situation. On the western plains there
are large deposits of it but so far it
has not been of practical use because
of the great percentage of water i*
contains.    ���
The coinmisMon is certain that
treatment can be applied to it which
will make lignite not only a good

some plants in the United States
adapted to the work will likely bo

The Big-Crop
Western Canada's Wheat Crop Estimated  at 217  Million  Bushels
An estimate of the crop of Alberta,
Saskatchewan and Manitoba, compiled by a special correspondent of a 1
Toronto newspaper, places the total
yield of wheat of these three provinces at 217 million bushels; oats at
255 million bushels; barley at 41 million bushels, and flax at eight million
bushels. These figures have been arrived at by personal observation, as
a result of travelling 5,000 miles by
train and motor within the three
provinces since the first of August,
conversation with . government officials and others who were in a position to see the crops at first hand
and are based on the acreage furnished by the three provincial departments of agriculture in conjunction with the Dominion census aud
statistics bureau.
_ Working independently at the same
time, a Winnipeg newspaper arrives
at an estimate for the three Prairie
Provinces of 214 million bushels of
wheat, 187 million bushels of oats,
38,781,060 bushels of barley, and 6,-
611,463 bushels of flax. This estimate
has been based on an exhaustive inspection of the three provinces by a
special representative of the paper,
and the reports of over two hundred
correspondents. The wheat estimate
has been arrived at on the basis of
���a yield of fifteen bushels for Manitoba; fourteen for Saskatchewan and
twenty-five for Alberta. It is now
felt to be conservative, as the yields
arc proving lo he much greater than
was anticipated a short lime ago, and
the Toronto estimate, at least as far
as wheat is concerned, will most likely bc found nearer to the final figures.
But taking the lower estimate of
214 million bushels, the value of
Western Canada's wheat crop on the
basis  of  price  which  has  been  fixed

Some 50 Ships Valued at- $25,000,000
For Coast Yards
British Columbia's shipbuilding
program provides for the construction of some 117,000 gross tons of
commercial shipping, which will have
a total carrying "capacity of nearly
185,000 tons. The value of these ships
some 50 in all, is in the neighborhood
of $25,000,000.
_ While this estimate of construction of tonnage is only approximate,
it includes practically every ship of
importance in freight-carrying
There are, nowever, a number of
small ships being built, snch as fishing boats, which have not been included. With these the total gross
tonnage would bc about 150,000.
All the ships forming a part of the
present program if shipbuilding arc
taken in account. Some of the ships
are already in the water, some are
scarcely begun, but the amount of
tonnage given represents definite contracts oiilv.

Food Controller Offers Some Timely
The food controller is' informed
thai avoidable waste of valuable orchard and garden products is taking
place in many (owns and villages of
In order to prevent this waste an
appeal is made lo tlie mayors,
reeves and officers of the respective
municipalities to take immediate
steps to conserve such products as
cannol be made use of by the producers or disposed of through the
usual channels.
To accomplish this object the following  suggestions  are   made:
1. Citizens arc urged (a.) to use
every means in their power lo conserve for their own use their full
requirements of fruits and vegetables;
(b) to dispose of any surplus they
may have through the usual channels of trade, or turn such surplus
over to a local conservation committee.
2. That tlie head of every municipality organized from representatives of the various local societies,
organizations and religious denominations, a civic conservation committee to take charge, of the assembling
of all surplus orchard and garden
products that may be.donated by the
individual citt_;..ns by enlisting tlie.
co-operation of ihe public and high
school teachers, utilizing parties organized from amongst the pupils, aided I13' conveyances donated for the
purpose by the citizens.
':".""3. Thai the various conservation
committees make immediate"���'- and
adequate arrangements for the safe
storing of all such surplus products
until such time as they can bc disposed df to the various charitable or-
i gaiiizalinns or soldiers' homes or sold
! by such committee to those unable
; lo purhcase at regular prices, or, disposed of through the regular trade
channels and the proceeds of all
such sales donated to the Red Cross
or similar organizations as the discretion of the committee shall direct.
It  is urged   that   ihe    widest  pos- j \\'i]''c,n
slide   publicity  be   given   to   this   ap
pfal and  the earnest co-operation
all  citizens  enlisted  in  its  behalf.

Paper Clothes
Clothing   With   Which
many Is Threatened
Some interesting further details
are now available about the paper
clothing with which Germany is
threatened. The "linen" made of
paper'is very rough, and delicate
skins will not bc able to stand it
used for shirts and underwear; but
German science will no doubt be
able to overcome the difficulty before next spring. Paper is now
woven into loose and firm stuffs. In
its natural color it is used for towels. It is quite good, we arc told,
and docs not tear in the wash provided that it is not soaked before
washing. It is also very useful for
linings. It can be had in pure white,
which looks like "schirting." (The
extra c conceals the British origin of
'(he   word).
Very strong blue overalls for
workmen havc also been made of
pap'cr, and even striped and spotted
blues are available for ladies' skirts.
Finally, paper ���trousers are highly
recommended. They arc striped,
and look very handsome, and are,
moreover, guaranteed waterproof. By
the spring whole suits will be on the
market, and also materials for ladies' clothes, which will be so flexible
as to fall into graceful folds and deceive, all but experts.���London Daily
Consumption of Rice
Greatly Increased
Believed That It Has Direct Relation
to High Price of Wheat
and Potatoes
_ The increasingly important part
rice is playing in feeding the people
of the United States is shown in figures, compiled by the United States
food administration.
The production for 1914-1915
amounted to 1,064,205,000 pounds,
with a per capita consumption of
11.34 pounds. This was Increased in
the 1916-1917 crop to 1,831,590,000
pounds, with a per capita consumption of 17.33 pounds.
The large increase in consumption
during the past year undoubtedly has
direct relation to the high price of
potatoes and wheat.

Women arc slower, but more careful, said an oflicial of ihe Mechanics

as many women as men are needed
to do the same amount of work, the
bank loses no money on extra salaries, because the women save hundreds.of dollars which had to be paid

Nothing Else Will Matter if We Fail
to Win the War
This ferment of reconstruction is
a wonderful thing, and on the whole
an admirable thing. But there is
one event in which it will come to
nothing���so far as this country is
concerned. It will come to nothing
if the Germans win. We shall havc
neither the heart, the enthusiasm,
the means, the money, nor the liberty to carry our schemes into effect. Nothing will be left of the ferment but the gas that has been
i given off and a black sediment at
the bottom of the tank. Meanwhile
tlie world will unquestionably be re-
coi.islruclcd-=-by the Germans���and
in ja manner that none of us approves of.
In that event the future historian
will have some comments to make
about all this which will not be
pleasant reading to those of us ���who
may live to read them. "These
worthy people," lie will say, "spent
too ".much of their time and energy
! on this business, and too little on
j bringing the war lo the only con-
j elusion that would havc given them
j a chance." He might even go far-
! ther and make certain remarks
I which would render us rather ridicu-
j Ions in the. eyes of posterity. I/or
! example, he might say, (.noting chnp-
| ter and verse, that a large number
; of Britons during the war fell into an
j evil habit of condoling themselves
| for lheir losses on land and sea by a
kind of reconstructive debauch,

Bucharest was captured they discussed a league of peace; and so on.

indeed, by a future historian, but by
an intelligent young officer newly
returned from the trenches. And I
imagine that after lite war these intelligent young officers, not to speak
of the privates, will have a good

of history. If we lose, the war they
will come back in wrath and we, who

If these and other wheat stocks

United States would bc immediately

be always taken into consideration.
To ship wheat from Australia would
take three times the tonnage per cargo as that from North America,
since the roule is three times as long,
and the extra tonnage for this purpose cannot bc spared. Moreover,
the submarine danger is about twice
as great Small cargoes of this
wheat, however, arc now being
; brought across the Pacific to our
j western coast, mostly by sailing vessels, transported across "the continent,
and reshipped from Atlantic ports to
the allied countries.
! New wheat crops will bc harvested in Argentina in December and
January, in Australia in January, and
in India in February and March. The
coming Argentina^crop is official estimated at 239,575,000 bushels, a record crop, as against a production of
77,444,000 bushels for last year's
crop. Tlie Argentina wheat for future delivery is being quoted at $1.25
per bushel.

Petroleum is badly wanted iu Canada at all times. The domestic production is decreasing; the imports increasing. In 1916 292,000,000 gallons
of crude and refined petroleum valued at 14,000,000 were imported into the Dominion.
Why could not a large part of this
bc supplied by home-made industrial
alcohol? Industrial alcohol for illumination, cooking and usc in internal combustion engines is a good
substitute  for petroleum.
Or take the Canadian imports of
gasoline. In 1916 Canada imported
18,322,000 gallons of gasoline valued
at $3,635,000. The price of this product is increasing all the time, the
available supply lessening. Indeed,
it has been estimated that in 27 years
the United States' supply of crude
oil from which gasoline is obtained
will be exhausted.
Why should not a substitute be
found in industrial alcohol? That
product can be\ readily made from
potatoes, sugar, beets, molasses am'
��� To take the possibilities of the potato alone: According to the Dominion horticulturist, 300 bushels of potatoes can be produced from an acre
of good land if the best methods are
used. At tlie price of 21 1-2 cents a
bushel there would bc a greater profit to the farmer than in raising
wheat ordinarily on the prairies. Furthermore, the potatoes need not be
sacked and can be shipped frozen.
As to the sawdust, there is a great
opportunity in British Columbia for
the utilization of this waste material
for the production of alcohol. One
big powder and explosive factory in
the United States produces nearly
750 gallons a da3r from sawdust and
wood waste.

Judging  from  the   almost universal opinion of  men thoroughly
familiar with Mexican  conditions,
better times are about to come to
our neighbor on  the south.    Experts  who  know  have   unlimited
faith in Mexico and its  future and
believe that the end of her troubles
has been  reached.    Anyone who
may  feel  uneasy  abont   Mexico's
future   should   consider   Mexico's
importance as a mineral producer.
In   normal   times   it   stands first
among the nations of the world in
the production of silver,   second in
the production of copper,   third in
the production of petroleum   (with
every indication of becoming first),
and fifth in the production of gold,
and it ranks high in  the   production of other minerals.    A country
of such    magnificieut   production
and   equally   magnificient    latent
possibilities cannot remain   in   a
state   of   inactivity   permanently.
Mexico is too important  a factor
in the world's needs to be permitted to do so.    The political  troubles that have afflicted the country
during   the   past   few   years   are
about settled,    and   Mexico   will
again take her rightful place  as
one of the great mining  countries

More and more the streets, the
sidewalks, the railway cars, the

places began to fill with sober-

had called her young men, and
they are coming, as they have always coroe. In a little while they
will begin to march, and we whom
age and other disability has kept
out of fehe ranks shall see what
only a few generations in all history have been privileged to behold.

Bide them and among them, will

those of Americans may not see the
shadowy figures, but we shall eee
and know them. There will be
tall men in Buckskin shirts and
fringed leggings, with long hair
and coonskin caps, and bearing
powder horns and flintlock rifles.
We saw them once marching from
Virginia to Cambridge, Mass., 140
years ago. There will be farmers
in short breeches and shirt sleeves,
and sailors in wide trousers and
glazed hats, barefooted and bearing cutlasses and boarding pikes.
There will be men in buff and blue,
in dark blue, in light blue and in
butternut gray and mounted men in
wide hats swinging free in fehe saddle with fehe ease of the horn
All those shall march, and we
