Pte. Lenoie Fisher was here for
a few days this week on leave from

transportation to the coast to report to the military authorities.���

Last year California shipped 40,-

000. There are 500 pounds in a
bale, and cotton pickers are paid
from $30 to $60 a ton. Calexico
is the cotton town of California,

Harry Bretzins left Greenwood
about seven years ago. He was
grub-staked by an Englishman
named Morton, who afe the time
was [worth over 8400,000 in cash.
Harry found fehe Debenture group
in the Hazelton district, and sold
ife for $50,000. When he turned
over $25,000 to his partner, Morton
only bad $35 in cash. He had lost
part of his vast fortune in speculating; and the balance was tied up
in land and city lots. It is a great
pleasured to meet an old friend in
foreign parts. I met Harry on the
Plaza the other day, and; as we
dined afe the greatest cafe in San
Diego he said that he wonld give
810 if Charley Dempeey would just
drop in and have a bite with us.
Harry's many friends will be
pleased to hear that he is on Easy
Bfereefe, for he is white clean
through, and belongs to bbe best
type of red-blood pioneers and
trail-blazers. He will return to
Hazelton in May, after spending
the   winter   with   his   father   at
FresnjD, Ohio.

Hidden Peril of France
Danger Lurking in the Lure of   the
He warned in time by
fale! Do not lose your
love of lhe laud; do not let industrialism absorb your peasantry, and the
lure of wealth and thc cheap glamor
of thc towns draw yon into their un-
ehanned circles. \\'c English have
rattled deep into a paradise of machines, chimneys, cinemas and halfpenny papers; havc bartered our
heritage of health, dignity ancl looks
for wealth, and badly distributed
wealth at that. You were trembling
on the verge of the same precipice
when the war came; with its death
and wind of restlessness the war
bids fair to lip you over. Hold back
with all your might! Your two
dangers are drink and the lure of
the big towns. No race can pre-
sscrvc sanity and refinement that really gives way to Ihesc. You will not
fare even as well as wc have if you
yield; our fibre is coarser and more
resistant than yours, nor had wc ever
so much grace to lose. It is by grace
and self-respect that you have had
your_ pre-eminence; let these wither,
as wither they must in thc grip of a
sordid and drink-soothing industrialism, and your star will burn out. The
life of the peasant is hard; peasants
arc soon wrinkled and weathered;
they are not angels; narrow and over-provident, suspicious, and given to
drink, lliey, still have their roots and
being in the realities of life, close to
nature, and keep a sort of simple dignity ancl health that great towns destroy. Take care of your peasants and
your country will take care of itself.

President Wilson and Secretary Lansing More Than Match for
German Diplomats
President Wilson's declaration in
favor of war against. Austria is approved by the London Morning
Post, which adds:
"Wc in this country can only say
that when America goes to war she
goes to war. She has the extraordinary fortune to bc led by a president of intellect, courage and determination. President Wilson and Secretary Lansing were more than a
m;itch for the best diplomacy that
(icrmany could produce. America
will.be more than a match .ior- Germany and her allies in. the-war * * *
- America is in ii position to carry
her resolve, te execution. Alike in.
men, resources, skill and dctcrmina-
! lion,. America . is superior to Germany, though she were fighting-
America alone. Therefore, so far as
human .pro-vision can extend we arck,
justified in assuming that eventual
complete defeat of the enemy. But
that is to look ahead. It is.the-presenting enormous ! cut business of lhe allies to7 do their
utmost in the interval, which must
elapse before ....���American' forces . are
finally effective. It is quite certain
that (iertinmy will utilize every moment. '..'������'���.���
_ "It obviously is her policy to
force a decision, iii the -.next few

 : ..   prairie soils, an experiment was slart-
tcd on the Scott Experimental station
1914. Three years' results .are
now available and thc figures quoted
in this article are an average of the.
increased yields, from the application
of manure, secured during the past
three seasons.
Thc soil on the Scott station is a
rich chocolate clay loam with a clay
subsoil. In all the experiments manure was applied with a spreader at
the rate of 12 tons per acre. All plots
���were plowed 6 inches deep. The rotation that is being followed is two
grain crops, summer-fallowing excry
third year.
Four methods of applying manure
are. given in this article.
Method Xo.  1 consisted in spreading  manure direct  from  the  barn  in
the  winter on  fall  plowed land. 'The
manure  was worked into the soil   in
the spring with a disc harrow. Wheat
; grown  on  land treated  this way only

Two years ago thc declared will j
of our elected representatives was
clearly a will toward peace. Certain
of us had a will toward war. Among
thc persons suspected of this will
was Theodore Roosevelt. 1 followed
him. 1 do not follow him in all his
moods but I find that I am always
following him in the mass of his
acts. 1 shall go down to my grave
believing that he was llic greatest of
all thc men of my times, for action.
He could sit in at an inter-allied
conference and produce a united political and military front, beyond any
other man that lives, and 1 wish hc
were doing it. He could knock the
heads of Britons ancl Americans aud
Frenchmen and Italians together, as
he knocked the heads of capitalists
and proletarians together iu thc anthracite, coal fields, faster than anybody else. He is the supreme man
for that supreme job. Send him,

The fourth plan, which is hardly
comparable with thc preceding three,
is that of plowing under rotted manure in the spring. This method gave
the best returns of any, but a part
of this may be due to "thc fact that
early spring ploughing usually gives
a heavier yield in this district than

While few weeds were found on
the plots treated with rotted manure

The Lesson Written  in
But even if ;t supreme disaster has
been escaped iu Italy it is essential
that no allied statesman and no allied patriot should mistake: the lesson
there written. By every influence
that she. can exert Germany is attacking behind the lines and in thc
ranks of her enemies. The Anarchists, the Socialists, the Clericals, the
intellectual and the. ignorant, the
visionary thinker and the man without thought���all are. seized upon by
her. Tlie Utopian ideals of some,
the selfish cowardice of others���these
are the lines through tvhicli (iennany
operates for the destruction of her
enemies and the dissolution of the
national unity of the. countries who
are fighting Iter.
Allied armies havc now come, lo
the support of Italy. We may hope
that Venice- i.s safe and the crest of
the invasion is passed, but unless wc
recognize that thc same forces which
induced the Italian disaster are operating in France, in England and here
at home in the United States we
shall have at no distant date to confront another crash, another collapse
like that which has taken place in.
Hussia in totality and in Italy in
part. Germain- has lost the war so
far as it is a military question. She
canot defeat thc armies of her
enemies. She. can win only by corrupting the people behind the armies
and portions of the armies themselves. Russian and Italian events
should serve the greater end; they
should bc final evidences of thc -way,
ancl the one way, that the war may
be lost. If they do serve this end
they may yet prove a beginning oi"
defeat rather than the high water
marks of the latest and most dangerous of all German campaigns.���New

The iiritish Soidter
Is    Always    Smiling    and    Cheerful
Through  It All
Through it all. the British soldier
coines smiling and cheerful, loathing it as dirty, senseless work and
eager for il all to end, yet determined that it shall not cud without
victory, and that this war and his
sufferings���or, as he would put it,
the sultcrings of his fellows���shall
win a lasting peace. Success docs
not make hint boastful, reverses do
not depress or dispirit hint. Hc does
not talk or sing of glory or of patriotism. But he does glorious deeds,
and the best proof of true patriotism
is a cheerful readiness to give, all for
duty. The British soldier, and in
that word, of course, we include every fighting man of the empire,
wherever his home, is an indomitable
as patient, and as chivalrous a man-
at-arms as llic world has ever seen.

for Coal, Salt and  Steel
Negotiations carried on between
German and Danish delegates concerning an exchange of merchandise
between Denmark on one side and
Germany and Austria-Hungary on

including shipbuilding material, as
well as the prices of Danish^ agricultural produce for export to Germany.
On the Danish side the negotiations were carried on in common by
delegates for agriculture, commerce

bint in his recent great bereavement.
There is no grave on earth's broad chart

The weary heart a blessing.

When you ask Long Distance to get you a certain party,
your request sometimes means that the country sometimes has
to be searched for the person wanted, The other day, a subscriber made such a request, the person wanted being engaged
on an outdoor contract, and had been gone a week. Place
after place was called, and finally Long Distance was success- \
ful. She generally is. The appointment was made and the
call completed. The cost was 25 cents for a three-minute
talk! Not much money for the work, but Long Distance was
greatly pleased that she was able to snpply the service.
You place your call, Long Distance does the rest.

Over The Top"
Nature has made British Columbia rich and
beautiful The waters that run through and
surround it, are teeming with edible fish, includ/
ing clams. Its lofty sky/scraping mountains are
filled with almost every known mineral, while
the yellow power of earth'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* Tlie 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 .yet it has a scant 400,000* Then
sings the little  ^
business man.    It does not advertise, or does
effectiye and suggestive advertising, until all
the world thinks and talks about this glorious
Canada'sprovincial by^
on^ g^
