The Telephone Gives You More Energy, More Time
Conservation is the consideration' above all others these
daiys. We are getting so that before we elo anything we think
a moment to End out if there is any way to save something.
So when we had need-to talk to someone, we think a moment then use the telephone.   Not only does it give us direct,        _
face to face communication, but we save energy and time���two
of the principal essentials.   In fact,  they are the greatest, for
with energy and time we can accomplish almost anything.
Consider what the telephone means to you���as a convenience, as a utility, as a necessity.

Gunning is Coming
Canning is coming to Greenwood
on September 14. The Calgary

part of what the Herald says about
this man of wonderful talents:
"Cunning does all sorts of tricks
like this. People write out questions and without seeing them, but
merely getting the people to think
about them, he calls oufe names
and gives the questions and answers. This was the biggest part pit
the show. Mr. Canning convincing the people that he possessed a
power which , they did not have,

The tricks performed in the first
part of the program were indeed
perplexing. Mr. Cunning does
things with a dexterity and ease

Small Size and High    Speed    Make j
Them More Difficult Targets
An important part -was played by
thc French in the battle between the
Aisne and Villcrs-Cotterets, last week
by new small tanks which were used
for the first time and engaged a
considerable force. They are almost
a quarter thc size and weight of the
ordinary battle tank and carry a crew
of two men, cue of which steers and
the other operates thc machine gun.
The new tanks are much faster
than the ordinary tanks, and can
climb a slope which the latter could
Bagdad is Now
Hive of Humanity
Allied Rule Has    Transformed    the
Former Turkish   Metropolis
The British official press correspondent with the British army in
Mesopotamia sends the following
"The Turk has been dissipated on
all three fronts during the past year.
Meanwhile peace has reigned in the
city of Bagdad, and the amenities of
life havc been multiplying for the
jarmy and for the civil population.
' "Bagdad was dead, to all appearances, when the British army entered on March 11 last year. Now it
is a bustling hive of humanity.
Thousands of workmen pass through
the streets early and late. The ihain
street is paved and lighted. There
is a constant stream of traffic, and
the sleepiest old women who haunt
the streets have became adept at
dodging the American motor cars
which rush through the streets.
"A police force and a fire department have been organized. The old-
fashioned oil lamps in the streets
have been replaced by eJctcric
lights. The water supply has been
improved and extended. Mosques
have been repaired, roads havc been
paved, and schools, including a
training school for native teachers,
have been opened.
"The streets are now well watered

Early Submarines
. Boat  Which  Could  Be  Expanded
By Means of Leather Bellows
It i.s not generally known that the
| submarine as a possibility dates from
thc sixteenth century. An English
seaman gunner, named William
Bourne, in his book of "Invditions
or Devices," which was published in
1578, described such a boat; and
while it is certain that his vessel,
constructed as he suggested, could
not live long in any great depth of
water, he did show that he had a
grasp of tlie problem. Nothing came
of this submarine, although for ycars
Bourne's description was quoted and
may havc inspired some, subsequent
designs. Briefly, he suggested a boat
which ��� could; be;vcxpaiulecr-iti; si^evor

A diversion is caused by two seamen
who box vigorously on thc deck of a
destroyer moored alongside.
Presently the military landing officer calls for "markers" and 3 noncommissioned officer from each draft
takes up his position on the wharf.
Shouldering their heavy packs, thc
men swarm down thc gangways and
"fall in" rapidly beside them. A
party of about 70 is detailed off to
clean up  thc  ship.
The senior commanding officer
then tells the men of thc long march
before them; how they must return
the compliments of the French soldiers as they pass; how they must at
all times remember that they are in
France. *
Il is a long step through thc docks

Paper Horseshoes
Parchment Paper Cut Out and Built
to a Suitable Thickness
A European inventor proposes to
make a paper horseshoe that for
general purposes, shall be the equal
of the steel horseshoe, in thc following way: Parchment paper is cut out
in thickness by the use of a mixture
of turpentuic, Spanish white, shellac
and linseed' oil treated with litharge,
and the whole is placed under thc
hydraulic press. This produces very
light and uniform pieces, and it is
an easy matter to stamp out the nail
holes and grooves. Instead of nailing
to the horse's hoof, thcy can be applied witb jui adhesive composition
Whose principal part is a solution of
rubber in bisuphide of carbon, Paper
paste could also bc moulded into the
shape of a horseshoe by usc of the
press, but thc result is not as good
as* with thc above. In actual use it
has been found that the shoe does
not hold well on the ground, its surface being too  even.
To Stifle the Truth
Authorities Prevent    Circulation
Lichnowsky's Memoirs
German activity in preventing the
circulation of memoris of Prince
Lichnowsky and statements of former Director Muehlon of the Krupp
works, blaming Germany for the
world war, was noted iu an official
despatch from Paris based upon information  from  Berne,  Switzerland.
"Germany is trying by all means
in her power to prevent the truth
leaking out regarding the causes of
thc war," says the despatch, "Immediately thc pamphlets containing���
texts regarding these causes appear,
they are bought up wholesale by
German agents. The memoris of
Prince Lichnowsky appear to particularly disturb  the  Germans.
"The. circulation of thc texts was
not feared until it was realized that
they had a demonstrative value.
This is really the case in regard to
the Lichnowsky and Muehlon memoirs, the arguments of which were
confirmed by the kaiser in a recent

Loss of appetite during the summer months is a common trouble,
and indicates that the digestive system is out of order. Lacking- a
healthy appetite, many people���especially women���go top long without food, or eat sparingly because
food seems to distress thcin, and it
is no wonder that thcy complain that
they arc constantly tired and unable
lo stand the hot weather. ' This simply mcans that the digestive system
is not doing its proper work, . and
that the nutriment that should conic
from tltc food Is not being distributed to the various organs of the body.
In other words the blood is growing-
thin and watery.

Farmer Sweeney's Dog Was Shipped
to Him as per Bill of Lading
How far would the Canada food
board go towards procuring a dog
for a fanner? This is no foolish
question.' The United Slates food
administrator lias put all its machinery in motion to accomplish just
such air object. They believe in
thoroughness oyer there.
John   Sweeney, farmer,    of    York-

chickens through the depredations' of
foxes.    He''lost sixty in a few weeks
through' fox raids.    Heordcred a fox
hound from a dealer    at    Zanesv.ille,
Ohio, and  the: express  company.���   refused  to take the hound dog around
there, as they .were preoccupied with
government  traffic.    Sweeney    maintained   that -if-.food   was   to   win. the
war,   his   chickens  were   part   of   the
j plan in  every sense of lhe term.   He
wrote to Mr. Hoover, who passed the

English Channel
Tunnel Scheme
International Parliamentary   Conference Favors Project
Strong support for the English
Channel tunnel scheme from thc
French and Italian delegates was
voiced at the International Parliamentary Conference held in London.
A resolution in favor of constructing
the tunnel was  carried unanimously.
It was estimated by tlie sponsors
of thc resolution that: the passenger
traffic-from France alone would, be
3,000,000 persons annually instead
of the 100,000 that travelled by
steamer before thc war. The probable passenger, and freight traffic
between Great Britain itnd the continent was figured at. a profit of
��1,118,000, or 7 per cent, on the tunnel company's capital of ��16,000,000.
The tunnel, which should be completed within five years of its commencement, would be worked, ventilated and pumped by electricity
supplied from a power station in
Kent, possibly ten miles or more inland. It was suggested that the tunnel should be maintained under the
kuthority of the war office, and a
dip in the level of the rails forming
a water lock, by which tlie tunnel
could,' in case of emergency, be
flooded from floor lo roof for a mile,
would be under the control of thc
commandants at Dover Castle and
the neighboring forts.
. Against the danger from enemy
submarines, depth bombs or mines,
the .tunnel' would be protected by a
covering of thc tibalk bed of the
Channel of a'..'minimum thickness of
100 feet. The water dept above the
tunnel would at no vulnerable point
be less thaii 180 fect."
Daylight Saving in Britain
The Obvious Step of Extending the
Daylight Saving Act
Indication of the popularity of thc
daylight saving plan in Great Britain after experience of its results, is
given iu thc proposal now made, for
its extension so that another hour
may be added lo the day, as now determined by  the legislation..
The London Daily Mail in a recent issue  says:
"The fuel-saving problem is so
urgent that the government should,
without further delay, take thc obvious step of extending thc Daylight
Saving act by 'having the "clock
put forward another hour until the
end of August. Simultaneously street
lighting everywhere ought " to bc
stopped  during the' summer.
"When wc all put our clocks an
hour forward a few weeks ago none
of use realized it thc next day. None
of_ us would bc inconvenienced by
this further change; it would be even
less troublesome than the monthly
change of lighting-up and blind-
drawing time; and, indeed, a monthly
adjustment of daylight saving hours
would have much ^o recommend it.
"Another hour of daylight saving
would mean that in the vast majority of homesno artificial light would
be needed in thc summer mouths.
Here would bc an immense saving
of fuel. There would be still more
evening daylight for thc garden or
allotment, and food production would
bc greatly increased.
"The farmer's, who might bc hampered in their hay and corn harvest
by the dews, could start work an
hour later. In purely agricultural districts it would involve iio great
scheming for thc village post office,
inn, and shops to adopt tlicir hours
to local needs.
"Man was not made by thc clock;'
the clock was made by man. Clock
lime is not sacrosanct; it is arbitrary. Man, like thc beasts and birds,
was intended to sleep in the darkest
hours, not in the hours of sunlight.
Everyone who has made a holiday
in thc Highlands in May, June, or
July (when there is scarcely any
darkness) remembers thc boon and'
joy of those open-air evenings. Another hour's daylight -saving will
bring Highland evening light to England citv toilers."

Frogs Assisted Enemy
Crown .Prince Tells Strange Story to
the Kaiser
Karl Rosncr, a newspaper correspondent who is frequently termed
the German emperor's press agent,
describes iii the Lokal Anzciger a
conversation which hc" says took
place between Emperor "William and
the German Crown Prince, in which
thc son told his father a story of
the "frogs at the battle of "the
Chcmin des Dames."
The story was fold, says Rosncr,
as the father and son stood on a
hill in tlie battle sector of llic army
group, of General von Francois on
June 3.    The Crown Prince said:
"It wai when the Germans were
preparing to storm the Chemin des
Dames. The frogs which were
found in millions iu the marshy
Ailelte river region, croaked in stic.li
a deafening fashion that they enabled thc Germans to bring up batr
icrics, ammunition and columns
without discovery, and when the attack actually was launched the
deafening concert of thc^ frogs prevented the enemy from "discovering
lhe position, of the German machine
In the course of the same conversation Rosncr says the emperor described thc occasion at thc beginning of last year, when hc was asked lo give permission for the blowing up of the famous French castle
at Coucy.-lc-Chateau, near. St. Queii-
ti'n. Hc said he hesitated until his
military advisers pointed out thai,
in the hands of thc enemy, the lowers.of. llic castle might menacethe
lives of hundreds of German soldiers.    The" emperor then   remarked:
"Would the. French, act diffcrcntly
in our. country? The 'protection- of
soldiers is the .supreme'law of . the
commander, and no edifice ought
to be spared when it" is a question ot

Germany's Only Hope
New Creamery By-product Has Been j lt Fell Dead After Saving Six Drifting Airmen
Hie story of a homing pigeon that,
a_t_ thc cost of its own plucky little
life, _ saved llic lives of six starving
British^iiriucn, adrift for four days
in llie'North Sea, is told by Canadian
Flight Commander R. Leckie, D.S.
C, iu a letter to his uncle, of Indian
Grove, Toronto.
The flight commander, who had a
seaplane, described his engagement
with hostile raiding aircraft over the
North Sea. At thc end he came
down in the sea, between fifty and
seventy-five miles from land, and
picked up the crew of an aeroplane
which had dropped owing to engine
failure. His "boat' has been riddled
with slirapnel, and the seaplane
would not rise again. ^The ilight
commander continues: .
"I  will  not describe to    you    thc
horror of  the   days     that     followed,
days  spent in  'watchful waiting' and
water at the   ral�� of one    eggcupful
each  pcr day  until  the  small  allowance gave out,   then    the muck from
thc   engine  radiators.    All   the  while
thc seaplane gradually broke up. Also
wc were compellcd-to bale incessantly to  keep afloat.    During this  time!
our base was quite  unaware   of our!
fate,    though    pilots    were sent out!
searching  for   us.    Looking   for   thc j
proverbial  needle in a haystack  is  a
small job compared  to thc  hopelessness  of searching for a  seaplane in
Kthc North Sea when  the visibility is
low and one has not the least idea in
which direction to search.
"Most long distance patrol seaplanes carry homing" pigeons. I had
four of them, and it is to the splendid endurance of one of these birds
that six men today owe their lives. I
'landed' en a Wednesday and released a pigeon at once, carrying a message to the base giving our position
and catise of troubles. On Thursday
a second l>ird was released carrying
a similar message.
���"On Friday morning a third bird
was sent, and knowing that we could
not last much longer, our remaining
pigeon was released on Friday afternoon, carrying an S.O.S. signal.
"The iirst three pigeons failed to
reach England, but thc fourth was a
winner. When I released him there
was a strong west wind blowing;
also fog.
".In spite of these adverse conditions, and also in spite of the fact
that hc must have been suffering like
ourselves from hunger and thirst, the
pigeon struggled over fifty odd miles
of sea without a landmark or -without a rest. He failed to reach * his
loft, but, reaching thc English coast-

German Press Discussing the Structure of the British Empire
According to the London Times,
the mceting-of tlie imperial conference has occasioned articles in the
German press discussing the structure of tfie British empire. Thc professors aim other so-called experts
are more moderate than hitherto,
and are apparently almost convinced
that thc war offers Germany no hope
of seriously undermining Britisii
unity. Canada has dropped almost
entirely out of the discussion, but
conservative journals cling to thc
hope lhat trouble can still be made
between Japan and Australia about
the1 future of the Pacific.
The  Vorwacrts,  in  a  long    article
entitled    "Greater    Britain,":    admits
that  thc  British   empire  has     inani-'
fested  a  powerful military  and- poli- j
tical cohesion, supplemented     by     a ! Hiin
strong  tendency    towards    economic j   r
unity, and says that a customs union!

Peace Demands
Fifteen Have Broken Relations With
Huns; Eight are Fighting
Fifteen "Pan-American" nations,
representing fottr-iiftlis of thc population of the western hemisphere,
havc broken relations with Germany,
according to John Barrett, director-
general of the Pan-American Union,
who delivered an address in Ncw
York recently.
"The fifteen countries," said Mr.
Barrett, "which are to be classed as.
having officially broken relations
with the central allies, can bc listed
as follows, arranged alphabetically:
Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica,
Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador,
Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras. Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, United States,
Uruguay. The following seven officially adhere to neutrality: Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Paraguay, Salvador and Venezuela.
"The following eight havc officially
declared war or taken action equal
to it: Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica,
Cuba, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama and the United States.
"If the action of Peru in seizing
German ships is to be regarded as
an act of war, this latter number
would be increased to nine."
Mr. Barrett declared that thc Pan-
American allies, exclusive of the
United States and Canada, could provide within two years an army of
2,000,000 men. These countries, hc
asserted, with their seven neutral
neighbors, are making enormous
contributions of food and supplies to
the belligerents.
Vancouver Women Pledged
At a mass meeting of nearly two
thousand women in Vancouver the
pledge was made to conform exactly to the requirements of the
Canada food board and to apply the
restaurant regulations in their own
homes. Furthermore it was "especially resolved to_ discontance any
social functions which promote thc
consumption of wheat products, pork,
sugar and  fats.
A Ready Weapon Against Pain.���
There is nothing equal to Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil when well rubbed
in. It penetrates the tissues and pain
disappears before it. There is no
known preparation that will reach
the spot quicker than this magic Oil.
In consequence it ranks first among
liniments now offered to the public
and is accorded first place among al!
its competitors.
Nearly Buried Alive
One of the Most Dramatic Storks
of the War
Between officers and their servants
at the front a profound affection
often springs up. In this connection
one of the most dramatic stories of
the war is  told.
An officer was shot and was declared to be dead. A burial party
had dug his grave, and the padre was
half-way through the service, when
the grieved servant thought he saw a
facial muscle twitch. He wondered
whether it was reality, or a case of
nerves on his-part. Consequently, he
hesitated to tell any one else. 'Meanwhile, he. studied his master's face,
and it seemed to him to be not quite
so deathly white as a dead man's
usually is.
At the last.moment he begged that
another examination bc made of the
corpse. The officer was alive and
recovered. All this happened nearly
two ycars ago, but so terrible was
the ordeal suffered by that officer
that even to this day he sometimes
awakens in thc middle of thc night-
disturbed by the fear of being buried

Tt is estimated that there are between four and five niillion dogs in
the United Kingdom' and a committee has been considering the question of rationing dogs and of killing
off a certain percentage. Many dogs
have already been destroyed in order to save food.

Victory or Ruin ?
Economic Situation in Central   Empires so Desperate That Only Indemnities Can Save Them-
"The German and Austrian people
are accepting the paper of their governments on the assumption that it
is backed by wealth, either in hand
or to be acquired, and it is here that
the whole sum and substance of
German war finance finds its source.
Having piled up in less than four
ycars a combined indebtedness that
reaches the appalling total of 50 billion dollars, having flooded the
length and breadth of Central Europe with 15 billion dollars of irredeemable paper money, and having

Timely Warning
Looted the Red Cross
Editor Lkdgij
Dear Sir: On Labor Day, the people of Coltern ancl vicinity, pic-nicked at
Loon lake. The proceeds from dancing
and the sale of ice-cream were donated to
the Red Cross. After the pic-nickers had
departed for their homes a bunch of
hoodlums in a delapidated Tin Lizzie
drove up and amused themselves with a
dance in the pavilion. Then they went
to the refreshment tent, where the Red
Cross had stored their surplus ice-cream,
cakes, dishes, etc. After eating all the
ice-cream and cake that they could hold,
they proceeded to destroy the balance,
throwing the dishes in the fire aud despoiling things in general. A party passing took the number of their Tin Lizzie.
Now you cheap plunderers of Red Cross
property either apologize and donate $3
to the Coltern Red Cross, or the number
of your car will appear in print.

It Isn't Your Town; It's You
If you want to live iu the kind of a town
Like the kiud of a town you like.
You needn't slip  your clothes in a grip

You'll only find what you left behind,
For there's nothing that's realiy new;
It's a knock at yourself when you leave

It isn't your town���it's you.
Real towns are not made by men afraid
Lest someone get ahead;
When every one works and nobody shirks
You can raise a town from the dead.
And if when you make your personal
Your neighbor can make one, too,
Your town will be what you want to see���
It isn't your town���it's you.
