Fight Against Autocracy
the Power of the Kaiser Must Be
It is a curious circumstance tiial
)cr<;ijforc tlie leaders of all inutin-
i_s, except that in .Russia, have been
'.nxious to deal gently wilh their officers. Not so ia (.iennany, for in
.ihe revolt of the lour battleships
(gainst its grinding, brutal and harsh
Javal discipline one captain was
.brown overboard and the fate of the
>ther officers remains so far undisposed. Is it any wonder, then, that
)uch a revolt should bc organized
C/hcii, as illustrative of Germans'
theories, the kaiser, without any lep.-
jl inquiry, without even a drumhead
tourt martial, could of his own will
decree that one out of seven milliliters should be hanged and others bc
icncneed to years of imprisonment?
JSuch is the autocracy the world is
fighting, and one of the most prcg-
/rr.nt illustrations (hat ils doom is
iealcd is that afforded by the attempt
l.nsuecessful as it has been, lo secure peace by the mutiny afloat.���

Horse Raising in Manitoba
Total Value o�� Horses in   Province
Placed at Forty Million
Both the soil and climaiic conditions of -Manitoba are admirably suited for horse raising. An abundance
ot pasture and feed of every description suitable for horses can bc grow n
and the cost of production is much
h.\ver_,than in the older settled districts. The winters, although somewhat cold, are dry, and are not so
keenly felt as in more humid areas.
'1 housnnds of horses are wintered
annually out of doors, and they conic
through the winter in surprisingly
good condition. Rarely is the fall of
snow so heavy as to prevent horses
from finding sufficient feed for themselves out of doors.
The demand for draft horses has
been seldom so keen as it is at the
present time, ticklings of fair size
and quality were changing hands this
spring at prices from $225 lo $300
each, and mares of ;. similar type
and quality were bringing a slightly
higher price.
It is estimated that Manitoba has
250,000 head of horses, of which, approximately, 1.200 are stallions enrolled in the department of agriculture. A conservative estimate would
place tlio total value of the horses
of the province at $40,000,000. '
Fit Men Only to Go to Front
j Canadian Soldiers in England Divid-
I ed     In.o    Fourteen    Stages
i of Physical Condition
|     Soldiers in  training for active  srr-
j vice, or fully trained and held in re-
I serve, are most carefully inspected as
1 to   their   physical     condition.       Only
' men in    the.      category      technically
known   as  "A-l"   may  bc  withdrawn
from   the   reserves   to   serve   in     the
trenches  in  France,  however    pressing  may be  the call  from  the  front
for  reinforcements.
Canadian troops in England are
divided into fourteen categories, or
stages of physical condition, as follows: A, five categories; 13, three
categories; C, three categories; D,
two categories, and E, one category.
Thus, when the call comes for reinforcements at any time the men in
thirteen of the categories are not
available. However picssing the call
may bc, all the men to go forward
must be drawn from category "A-l."

Just think! Vou can lift
off any corn or callus
without pain or soreness.
A Cincinnati man discovered this ether compound and named it free-
zone. Any druggist will
sell a tiny bottle of free-
zone, like here shown, foi
very little cost. You apply a few drops directly
upon a tender corn or
callus. InsUnlly the soreness disappears, then
shortly you will find the
com or callus so loose
.hat you can lift it right
Frcezone is wonderful.
It dries instantly. It
doesn't eat away the corn
or callus, but shrivels it
up without even irritating
the surrounding skin.
Hard, soft or corns between the toes, as well as
painful calluses, lift right
off. There is no pain before or af-
Itcrwards. If your druggist hasn't
i frcezone, tell him to order a small
j bottle for you from hig. wholesale

Simply Place It In The Mouth
Between Lower Lip and Gum.
This is the way to gel all the flavoi

Copenhagen Chewing Tobacco.
Vou see, "Copenhagen" is made of
the best, old, high flavoredleaf tobacco.
The snuff process���by which the leaf
tobacco is converted into tiny grains,
and scientifically prepared ��� retains
all the good of the tobacco.
Those who are trying"Copenhagen"
for the first time, should remember to
use only a small quantity, and to place
the pinch in the mouth between the
lower lip and the gum, without any
attempt at chewing it.
"It's the most  economical chew".
Canadian Toy Imports
Over    Two-Thirds    of    Them    Last
Year Came From United

Canadian imports of toys for the
fiscal year ended March 31, 1917,
show that out of a total of $930,066,

$179,-165, while of the balance ?99,
004 came from the United Kingdom
and about $20,000 from  France.
As compared with the fiscal year
ended March 31, 1916, this is a gain
for American tovmakers of $172,054
for Japan of $112,500 and for the
United Kingdom of about $17,000.
France, however, suffered a $7,63(3

Hid Under a Woman's Wig
A Conscientious Objector in England
Was Wearing Feminine Dress
A detective's smart discovery of a
conscientious objector dressed and
living as a woman in Bristol was
told to the magistrate recently. He
went to a house where two persons,
who claimed to be sisters, were living. Suspecting one, a sudden pull
at  the hair revealed a wig.
The wearer, Alfred Goodman Dunn
-10 years old, admitted he was a
conscientious objector, and that hc.
had posed as a woman to evade military service. He and his companion, Lillian-Fletcher, were charged
with failing to report-tinder the Na-

Increased Butter Production | CHILBLAINS
Manitoba Producing More Creamery
Butter Every Year
A gratifying increase in the production of creamery butler in Manitoba is being made this year. Up tp
October 6 a total of 80 carloads of
creamery kulier had been exported
from the province, and the end of
l li ci year will sec almost one hundred carloads sent out. This compares with a total of 68 carloads for
the full twelve months last year. A',
present this butter is selling at 42
cents a pound at the point of production.
Sonic districts of the province are
showing a remarkable increase in
production. For instaircc, five
creameries have run all season between Lakes Manitoba and Lako
Winnipeg, where prior lo this year
there was only one creamery. Each
of these five factories has done a
nice season's business, and between
them will sell close to half a million
pounds of high grade and high priced butter. This means the bringing
into that part of the country upwards of $200,000, and now that so
many of the farmers there have the
nucleus of a dairy herd, they may be
depended upon to increase the size
of  these  herds  right  along.
In two or three of the older dairy
districts this has already been done
to such an extent that individual ru-
ial creameries will make about half
a million pounds of butter each this
year. When the industry reaches

Five Thousand New Silcs in Iowa
Iowa farmers are building -5,00.0
new silos this year, according to the.
authorities at the Iowa State College
who have made a close census of the
stale. . ft is estimated that the average Iowa, silo holds about 10(1'ions.
This means that 500,000 tons of silage
will be." conserved in the new silos,
without which the vast amount of
feed would be lost.
The lo-ua Slate College stales that
the 5,000 filled silos would carry 200,���
000 beef cattle through a 100-day
iecding period, or would feed 100,-
0'K.l dairy cattle through the cold
months. Jn addition lo the new silos
it is said that Iowa has at least 23,000
others built in preceding years.

Swine Industry in Alberta
Soil and Climatic   Conditions   Make
Hog Raising Profitable
As might be expected in a_ district
wlier. the dairying industry is growing so rapidly, hog raising, affording
as it docs the most economical method of realizing- the large profits from
skimmed milk and other dairy byproducts, is a very _impot lant branch
of mixed farming in Alberta. The
soil conditions and the climate, which
arc so eminently suited for dairying,
.arc also productive of those crops
which produce the cheapest pork.
The. dry winter lessens the risk of
disease in the case of hogs, as in that
of cattle. The question of housing,
which is really llic only one the rearer of bwinc has to trouble about, is
rendered very easy by climatic conditions. In the summer the hog must
have protection against rain, in the
wiiuer it: must have warmth. The
live stock branch of the department
of agriculture in the provincial government pays some attention to this
by the publication of bulletins from
lime to lime, dealing with efficient���
albeit' cheap���methods of housing
s'.vine.  . . -
The question of breeding hogs is
oiiv: thai is easily answered in Alberta. Alfalfa is produced with great
success, in the irrigated area of
S.iui'iicrn Alberta. The stable diet
in the northern portion of the province consists of. chopped oats and
barley, which fatten and make splendid pork or bacon of excellent flavor.
Oats especially arc good: and when
it is considered that Alberta oats
weigh Al pounds lo the bushel, the
large amount of meat and''comparatively small amount of hull which
must lie present in the-..rain, it will
be seen that as food for growing pigs
it has no superior. In the north,
barley, and in the south, wheat, arc
relied on for fattening purposes, and
there is no.doubt that apart from the
v eight of the hull the barley grown
in Alberta is equal in food value to
Indian corn.
Grim Determination
That there is a grim determination
to fight on to a real victory aud
lasting peace is evidenced by such
papers as the British Weekly. Sir
Robert Nicol writes in a recent issue: "Jn any case wc cannot leave
this work half done. The Germans
must be brought to their knees. "Wc
must make sure that no such colossal
tragedy darkens the life of our
children as has darkened ours."
"Don't you contradict yourself in
some, of your speeches?"
"Of course," replied Senator Sorghum. "When 1 _ havc occasion to
contradict myself, 1 very carefully
observe which side, of the proposition gets most applause, and govern
rny future opinions accordingly."���

Worth Remembering
From  President Wilson's Letter   to
the Pope
The object of this war is lo deliver
the free peoples of the, world from
the menace and the actnal power of
a vast military establishment con-
frollcd by an irresponsible government, which, having secretly planned
lo dominate the world, proceeded to
carry out without regard either to
the sacred obligations of treaty or
the long-established practices and
long cherished principles of international action and honor; which chose
its own time for the war; delivered
its blow fiercely and suddenly; stopped at no barrier, cither of law or
of mercy; swept a whole continent
within the tide of blood���not the
blood of soldiers only, but the blood
of innocent women aud children also
and of the helpless poor; and now
stands balked, but not defeated, the
enemy of four-fifths of the world.

The Red Dot Flag
Japan    Has    Suffered    Least    From
Submarine Warfare
The modest white flag with the
red sphere in the middle has for
years been a familiar sight in this
port, but since the outbreak of the
war Vancouver harbor has sect- twice
as many Japanese ships as before.
The Japanese have been steadily
increasing their shipping activity on
the Pacific. Before the war the red
dot flag was seldom seen outside the
Pacific and Indian oceans, but now
the Japanese are sending their ships
into every sea in search of trade. The
"Maru boats" now regularly visit the
ports on the east coast of South.
America as well as the west coast
Of all the. maritime nations Japan
has suffered the least from the submarine warfare. The war opened up
new trade opportunities for Japan,
and she was not slow.in grasping
them. Her shipbuilding industry na-
|-lurally expanded with the extension
I of her shipping trade. One hundred
and lliirly-two Japanese ships, with
a gross tonnage of . 593,000, were
built between August, 1914, and June,
1916; at which date there were under construction thirty-five vessels
of 132,401 tons. On July 1, 1916, Japan had in the deep water and coasting trades 1,151 steamships, with a
tonnage of 1,856,877, and sailing vessels with a total measurement of
544,605 tons and took fifth place
among the sea-trading countries of
the world. _ Her merchant marine has
increased fifty per cent, in the last
six years. In 1910 the gross tonnage
of the steamers whose names end
picturesquely in "Maru" was 1,224,000
and the tonnage of Jaoancsc sailing
ships was 300,796.
Of the Japanese merchant ships
launched since llic war .began, about
forty per cent, were built in Japanese shipyards, and during 1917 these
yards will complete vessels amounting^ to 200,000 tons.
Since the outbreak of the war the
profits of the Japanese shipping companies have been very large. The
Nippon Ytiscn aKisha, the most important of these, made a profit of
$15,000,000 during the first half year
of 1916.

The Farmer and Prohibition
The Amount the    Liquor    Interests
Expend on Purchases From
the Farmer
There arc about 80,000 farmers in
Canada, constituting about ten per
cent, of the entire population. The
value of their products is approximately $1,000 per farmer, or $80,000,-
000 for the whole country. The
liquor trade purchases from the farmer is about $800,000 worth of produce or just one per cent, of all that
hc produces���that is $10 for each
fanner  in  Canada.
The question so often asked is,
"what will the 'poor' farmer do with
this $10 worth of produce when prohibition puts the liquor trade out of
business?" One thing is certain, he
will never bc compelled to throw
away this $10 worth of material
about w'lticli the liquor men are
troubling .^:cvisc!vns so grievously,
llic !ik.-M!v:nd is that someone else
will wr-iy >-:e grain and grapes, the
apples aud cherries. To hear the defender of the liquor traffic talk, one
.vould think that no one likes these
things unless they are brought to
him in the form of liquor.
If the S,000,000 people of this
country were to increase their purchases to the extent of two cents a
week, it would amount to about $800-
000 per year, the amount the liquor
interests expend on purchases from
the farmer. No need to worry about
the farmer. He is not worrying
himself, but is voting out the business every time he gets the opportunity.���J. H. Hazlewood, Department of Social Service.

I Four Million Persons on the  Island

' Conditions j
Mr.    Douglas     Eyre    of      Oxford I
House, Bethnal Green, says four mil- '
. lion of our fellow creatures  in    this !
' country  were  living in   overcrowded j
: conditions.    In  London   three    thou-
, sand  people  were   living  eight  in   a
room,   and   twenty-six   thousand, ' six
to a room.    Of London's population
20 per cent,  at least  lived  under  lamentable conditions.      The    country
needed half a million new houses  to
replace  those   that    were  insanitary,
three hundred  thousand  to  overtake
the deficiency in building of the last
seven years and seven hundred thousand  to  provide  for  the  increase  in
population.    This w?s equivalent   to)
the  erection of 1 1-2    million    tenements,  or 7 1-2 million new  rooms.
In Bethnal Green    forty    thousand
out of the population of 130,000 were
living under    insanitary    and    overcrowded    conditions.      The borough
possessed    five    condemned areas of
which Brady street���the most notorious area���had a population of 470 to
the  acre.      These    conditions    were
known _ twenty-seven   years  ago,   but
the attitude of the government    t'c

Settling the Land Why Farming is Essential
It look centuries for medical
science to discover that the blood is
the life. Now, it is known that if
the blood were always abundant,
rich and pure, very few people would
ever bc ill. It was not until the end
of the 19th century that an instrument was invented for measuring
the red part of the blood. Then doctors could tell just how anaemic a
patient had become, and with medicine to make new blood the patient
soon   got  well.
All the blood in the body is nourished and kept rich and red by the
food taken daily, but when, for any
reason, a person, is run down ancl
cannot make sufficient blood from
the food to keep the body in health
then a blood-making medicine is required. The simplest and very best
of blood-makers suitable for home
use by anyone, is Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. When a course, of these pills
is taken their good effect is soon
shown in an improved appetite
stronger nerves, a sound digestion
and an_ ability to master your work
and enjoy leisure hours. For wo-
r-.cn there is a prompt relief of, or
prevention of aliments which make
life a burden. As an all-round medicine for the cure of ailments due co
weak, watery blood no medicine dis
covered bv medical science can equal
Dr. Williams' Pink Tills.
You can get these pills through
any dealer in medicine, or by mail
at 50 cents a box or six boxes for
$2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockviile, Out.
Ambitious Plans of the Greater Winnipeg Water District
The Greater Winnipeg water district is planning a settlement about
eighty miles from Winnipeg. The
Dominion government gives the land
and consents to a certain deviation
from the section lines for the roads.
The provincial government is to
make the physical improvements���
roads, drainage,, etc. The colonization department will help in the settling of the men and will render aid
in various ways in starting them in
the development of the land, while
the agricultural department will give
them advice as to the best use of the
land and instruction in various horticultural processes and methods.
The agricultural college will furnish
stock and seed at cost and will stand
by to give expert advice. The provincial department of education is
very S3rmpathetic also, and it will be
very helpful in organizing the school
and making it contribute in many
ways to the uplift of the community.
The water district will build a large
bridge across the Birch river and a
model school and devote some -.0
acres to a community entrc, its land
settlement agent acting as business
agent to direct and help market the
products, which will be carried by
the railroad to the city. The city of
Winnipeg will buy the wood cut by
the settlers in clearing their farms.

Must Cure Germany
Peace Must Involve the Destruction
of the German Government
The military autocracy, which still
holds Germany by the throat, cannot in fact propose terms of peace
which the entente allies would be
willing to discuss without paving the
way for its own abdication. It would
have to make public confession that
its leadership had failed. It would
have to confess responsibility for a
catastrophe whose extent the German mind still refuses to realize. Any
peace which the non-German world
can consider worth while must involve the destruction of the existing
German government. For when the
government grows so weak thai il
must ask for a real peace, involving
a renunciation r.i" all it.-, plans of conquest and spoliation, the German
people will themselves turn and rend
it. It can have no function
longer in a Germany cured of
militaristic mania.���New York

addressed the Empire club of Ton
ronto as a practical farmer and alsa
a student of the economic problems
underlying agriculture in Canada. Hs
pointed out that agriculture is not
merely an occupation which some in*
dividuals follow for profit, but it is
a great national interest, determining
in a dominant way the fortunes oi
this nation and the opportunities anq
character of our poulpation; henc<
the improving of agriculture affect*
the status of Canada, its outlook ana

tween agriculture and manufacturing
as to profits, showing that if fiv<
per cent, were allowed on the capii
tal investment of the farmers ther_(
would be a deficit in the year's oper��
ations of $110,000,000, the value o_l
1,000 millions. The manufacturer*
had a surplus of $260,000,000 on theitf
year's business in addition to the five
per cent, on capital invested. Thus
is revealed one of the chief reasons
why boys leave the farm.
Yet agriculture is the most important industry which contributes to
man's welfare, besides being the one
which . supplies leaders in all other
lines of life; city life in a few years
would become extinct without the
constant stream from the country.

Hungary Has Suffered
Deaths are  Not   All   Caused   by   Jj.
Participation in War
Hungary has suffered most severe
ely of. all the belligerent countries,
in proportion to population, according to the Budapest newspaper Pesti
Paplo. It draw's this conclusion
from the study of the vital statistic*
just issued by the Hungarian government. German cities ceased to
publish such statistics early in the
war, but the Hungarian reports have
been continued on a pre-war basis;
and the reports of births, deaths
and marriages this year are characterized by Pesti Paplo as "most
alarming."    The paper says:
"The war has caused a destruction
of man power at the front Which can
liardly be estimated, even approximately, but the devastation caused at
heme seems to have been even more
terrible than that among the lighting,
forces. The losses at home have cer��
tainly been much more serious.
"The matter of births and marriages has declined considerably in
other countries as well. But in Hungary the excess of deaths over births
���in the civiMan population alone���
has grown to such a frightful extent
that in February of the present year
the deaths exceeded the births by
more than 13,000."
The writer, after pointing out that
deaths among civilians during the
third vear of the war exceeded tha
births by 130,000, says that the Hungarian losses at the front in the sama
period was over 100,000, according to
the 600 casualty lists published. Tha
number of men who are at the front
or who have done military service is
given at 3,000,000, or one-seventh o|
the entire population. Discussing tha
civilian   death  rate,  the writer  saysj
"Deaths due to bad and insufficient
food certainly increased in a very
marked way."

The Glory of the Girl
She was on the platform reading
her essay. She looked as if she
had just stepped out of a flower
bed. In her cheeks the carnation
had left its glow, and her lips had
robbed the roses. She was a
healthy, fragrant, glowing American girl, of a type that we love
and protect and honor.
Her essay or oration? Something that told of throbbing hope
and ambition and rosy skies.
Hard knocks are few in the chrysalis period. Why shouldn't this
graduation girl for a time believe
in the entire goodness of the world;
believe in perpetual sunshine? The
band plays raggy music for her
know; her pulses quicken and Bhe
is happy. It is well. Why should
she know that further down the
path their are no flowers, the bands
do not play and the clouds often
shut out the sun?   ���
Let her have her good times���
i-hils Graduation Girl. Let her
y.ory in her triumphs and be proud
:' her attainments. There can
:.-ver be too much happiness in
'.he world; there is always too
.r.uch sorrow.
Down in the front row are father
and mother���a man and a woman
v:ho had toiled and suffered and
home much. It is the common
tot. It puts deep care lines into
i^ces, and sometimes it wrinkles
hearts, but not always.
If you look closely you will see
1 bat that old couple had just one
,'bject in life���the girl. She is of
fieir blood. She is slipping away
i.-om them as the years go by, and
often the mother cries silently because of a sorrow chat is too deep
lor words. She is prond of her
Graduation Girl, but her arms are
empty, aud there is an ache in her
heart for the baby that has blossomed into a woman. Men love
deeply and truly, but there is
a holy affection denied them.
Mothers know it���mothers only.
The essays! To those old folks
it represents the climax of wisdom,
the culmination of learning. The
words flow like mnsic and their is
a hymn in eyery paragraph. True
affection weais rose colored glasses,
you know.
And then, when it ia all over, a
queen goes to her home. She
seems just a little bit higher and
holier than any other girl, does
this, graduation daughter, and she
talks to father about it, and to
mother, and her eyes shine, there
is a sob in her throat, and she discovers, all at once, that it wasn't
the applause of the great world she
yearned for, but the grand appreciation of an old man and an old
woman; not so m uch a desire for
fame and a career as to justify
their -wonderful faith in her ability.

"Over The Top"
Nature has made British Columbia rich and
beautiful^ The waters that run through ai^d
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 eartb'gold, 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," for lack of
cultivation* Its forests of gigantic trees are the
envy of the world* The scenery 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 jyet it has a scant 40,000* 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, the brightest gem in the cluster df
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
and get your job printing at the same office.
