The Most Cordially Hated by
Militarists of Germany
Deserved importance is attached
by thc Kansas City Star to a statement just made by .Judge J. C. Rup-
penlhal, of Russell, Mo. The judge
says thai in blood he is purely German, all his ancestors for as m ny
generations as he can trace them
y>-;is ' having been born in Germany and
Pink 1 iiYCd their lives there, He ;���, therefore a "German-American" '-is much
as anybody can be, but he differs
widely from some of ihciu in his
judgment as to the p7<.-seul relation
of himself and others of the .sarin;
class lo the German empire, its present .inhabitants, and especially lo its
ruling caste. "In the conditions of
the hour,"  hc  says:
"I would rather not take chances
for"-myself and children as -German-'
Americans on treatment Germany
might accord us if it were ( ver "able
to dictate terms of peace in or to the
United States. In that day it will
be better to be of any other blood
than-German, for, of all Americans,
I fancy, the. American of German ancestry is the most cordially hated
by lhe militarists of Germany. It
behooves all Americans of German
ancestry to be especially zealous for
our nation, for they have most to
lose." . .-.���'���'.-'

All Overlooked Little People
The  Inhabitants   of    ILettonia
Now War Refugees
The    Lettish    people    have
great  sufferers  from  thc   war.
tonia  was   a  rich country, and
| great   ports   of   Riga,   Windau
I Libau  were  responsible   for o0.9  per
! cent, of Russia's pre-war exports and !
i 21.2 per cent, of her imporb,.   Cour-!
; land, the  richest province    of    Let- :
tonia, is  now occupied  by  the   Ger- ';
mans, and  two-thirds  of  the  inhabi- j
tants  are   refugees.    Riga,   tvith    its
550,000  pre-war population,   has  lost
half of its inhabitants, and the same I
applies  to   regions on   thc   border - of !
the  Dvina. ���   There are  now  8-0,000
Lettish   refugees,  forming   'he   high-
jest percentage of refugees    in      this
! war, as thc total number of Letts in
| the world docs not amount lo more
1 than  3,000,OJO.      The  German    inva-
I sions  have  involved the   loss  of  the
entire property of the  people.���London Graphic.

Long to Girdle the Earth
Eleven Times
Just how big the United States
railroad plant really is one may
learn from thc following statistics
given in the current issue of The
Scientific American.
"Not many people are aware that
the railroads of the United States
; have a total length approximately
, equal^ to those of Europe and Asia
combined. As a matter of fact, the
i railroad tracks, if strung out in a
continuous line, would be sufficient
to run a girdle of steel eleven times
j around thc earth at the equator.
j "If we take the average length of
i a locomotive as being 125 feet, we
I find that the 65,000 locomotives
I which arc possessed by all the rail-
] roads, if they were placed end to
end, would fill four railroad (racks
each 385 miles in length.
"The freight car statistics give us
some remarkable figures. ... If the
cars on a!l our railroads were placed
end to end they would stretch continuously for 20,000 miles, which
means that there arc sufficient cars
in the United States today, if strung
out, to make a complete circle of the
earth along lhc latitude of Philadelphia.

Inseparable From Life and
Without au international organization, without'a court of nations lo
adjust thc conflicts which arc inseparable from life, and growth, thc
world's estate after thc war will bc
worse than at the beginning. Thc
opportunity for the present tragedy
if not its cause, lay in the small
nationalities of the Balkans.
But even if the plans of the German annexationists arc completely
crushed, even if thc piinciplc of self-
determination has full sway, we shall
come out of the war with an infinitely magnified Balkan problem on ou:
hands. A new swarm of small nations will have been brought into
being���Poland, Finland, Ukrainia,
Lithuania, Mesopotamia, Armenia,

old diplomacy is to maintain itself,
the opportunities for mischief will
have been many times m'ultip'ied, and

for thc woes of thc world.

The Nemesis of Germany
The remark of a French ofiicer
that history will prove to be thc German's worst foe is a true and profound one. The lack of honor, of
faith, of truth, of all moral and humane considerations, will stand
against that race for generations to
comc, and inako their dealings with
other nations exceedingly difficult.
For years in the future they will bc
feared, hated and despised, and it
will be a herculean task to regain
the place in world public opinion
which their present leaders have so
wantonly forfeited.���Baltimore American.

At lhc first battle of Ypres Nellie

Soldiers of the Soil
Previous experience has shown
that there are few of the phases of
in nil work the older boys cannot
i-rrcuiiplish, Their main worth,
���,>crlinj>p, lies in the fact that by
t't-tendhip to the choree; looking
after milking and feeding of cows,
weeding and eucb other lighter but
neceHKiry farm work, they release
the regular farm labour for the
more strenuous farm tasks. Reports of work done last year show
that the Soldiers of tbe Soil looked
after the hoeing, harrowiDg, lighter
seeding, weeding, raking, mowing,
planting, churning and delivery of
cream and milk, general farm
chores, feeding of all live stock,
and the letters received from farmers who have these older boys
assisting them told not only of the
good work done but also of the
desire of these same farmers to
have lhe boys help another year.
Tlie productive capacity of 25,-
000 boys on the farm, according to
authority, should be equal to at
least live million bushels of wheat,
if we fake the labour of one boy as
equal- to the cultivation of ten
acres of wheat at twenty bushels

Avould appear is conservative.

Military Service Act
Announcement id All-
the -PiB'blic: Generally'
N dealing with the very large number of claims for exemption
brought forward for consideration in connection:-with Class 1
under the Military Serv'ce Act, it has occurred, as v/as inevitable, that as a result of false statements and difficulties put in the
way of investigation, some individuals have secured exemption
whose proper place is in the Army.
It..is. not the. intention of the Government-.to allow, these men to evade permanently their obligation to bear their part in the military defence of the'
Country and of the ideals for which we are fighting.    To do so would defeat
the purpose of the Act, and cause grave injustice to men in the second class
necessarily called out to fill their places.
. ExeiRp<>i3!is Granted on False Gs-ounds
It is, therefore, proposed to scrutinize carefully all exemptions granted to date
m order to. separate those which have been granted, on'false or insufficient
grounds from those that are well founded.
With this object in view the various Registrars under the Military Service
Act have been instructed to issue a series of questionnaires to exempted men.
These questionnaires must be filled up correctly.and returned promptly under*
penalty, of forfeiture, of exemption for; failure tp-dolso.-. >;:

Over The Top"
Nature has made British Columbia rich and
beautiful- The waters that run through and
surround it, are teeming with edible fish, include
ing clams, Its lofty sky ���scraping mountains are
filled with almost every known mineral, while
the yellow power of eartlvgold, it hides amid the
sands of many a creek. Its fertile valleys and
hillsides contain millions of acres that are doing
nothing to go "OVER THE TOP," lot lack of
cultivation, Its forests of gigantic trees are the
envy of the world. The scenefy is grandly
magnificient, while the climate contains the ozone
that puts pep into the human frame, filling it with
life, health and energy,
With all these advantages this Province
should have millions of happy people within its
confines, and yet it has a scant 400,000* Then
sings the little bird in the tree, 'What's The
Matter With B, G��
Nothing, except that it is like many a
business man. It does not advertise, or does
not know how. Turn on the bright light of
effective and suggestive advertising, until all
the world thinks and talks about this glorious
B. C.j the brightest gem in the cluster of
Canada's provincial diamonds. Get a move
on, go over the top, waving your flag and
blowing your cornet in front of the millions
that have not yet been "swiped" by the red
hand of Mars.
In the meantime do not fall to boost your
own business by dropping a soul-touching,
money getting ad into Greenwood's Leading
Excitement. Come across with enthusiasm
and plenty of printer's ink, and the public
will shell you with dollars, until you grow
tired picking them up. If you are wise, you
will always advertise, in
