Protecting the Birds
Birds Are the Greatest Help to the
Mr. Macdiarmid's bill in thc Ontario legislature for the Protection
of Insectivorous Uircls is as interesting to the bird-lover as it is of importance to the agriculturist. Few
people, outside those who havc made
a special study of the matter, appreciate the great role these little feathered creatures play in th.e intricate
and complex economy of nature, and
indeed, iu the actual conservation of
the life of man upon this planet. It
is asserted that an insectivorous bird
of any species will eat at least 100 insects a day, some varieties consuming as many as 400.
Mr. Chester A. Reed, of Worcester, Mass., in his very interesting little "Guide to Land Birds East of the
Rockies," estimates that the state of
Massachusetts has a bird population
of about 25,600,000, which requires
2,560,000,000 insects���about 21,000
bushels of them���daSy for its sustenance. These figures give some idea

Winnipeg.  Man.
Laws can hc made Io protect the
51 i birds from the ravages of man, but
there are many other agencies ever
at work accompanying their destruction, such as cats and other animals,
the elements, accidents, birds of prey
and snakes. One fruitful source of
wanton destruction is found in the
depredations of thoughtless schoolchildren, both in the killing of the
birds themselves and in the robbing
of their nests. Thc best way to overcome this is by educational means,
a sympathetic study of bird life
would have a humanizing influence
upon minds of the pupils, and weaken their natural, though vicious, instinct of destruction.

Boys' and Girls' Clubs
The Best Means of  Teaching Agriculture in a Practical Manner
In Manitoba the boys' and girls'
clubs constitute today the largest agricultural organization of thc province. In 1917 there was a total
membership of more than 15,000, and
there is every prospect of thc 20,000
mark being reached during 1918.
There are now 145 central clubs,
each having an average of about
eight branches, composed of the
most part of rural schools. Thc local marketing centre is usually the1
club centre and thc place at which!
the annual  fair is held.
Boys' and girls' clubs afford one
of the best means of teaching agriculture in a practical maimer, as well
as niakin ' the life of children on
farms more interesting. In Manitoba thc clubs are all on contest basis,
so that thc spirit of competition is
appealed to.    The rules of the   con

German a Dead Language
in U. S.
"Throw German text books and
the pro-German teachers out of the
public schools! Make German a
dead language, so far as thc rank
and file of America arc  concerned!"
These exhortations are contained
in a pamphlet issued by the American defence society as a counterblast to thc activities of thc German-
American alliance.
In the pamphlet Germany is termed "thc most brufal, treacherous and
loathsome nation on earth." Further charges arc made that German
militarism has committed "countless
crimes which decent newspapers
cannot describe in print."
On these grounds it is urged that

girls get their knowledge and experience incidentally, it nevertheless
is effectively learned.
The contests include pig raising,
calf raising, chicken raising, gardening, seed growing, cooking, canning,
sewing, wood-working, weed eradication and essay writing. The principal assistance given by thc extension
service of thc department of agriculture is by way of prepared literature,
the organizing of clubs^ sending out
supplies, giving instruction in the
work of the various contests, judging the gardens and seed plots and
giving definite directions to the children right on thc ground as to the
best methods to follow in improving
their work. Judges are supplied foT

What One Woman Did With Knitting Machines
Knitting, knitting, everywhere you
see it, by hand and hand machines.
Mrs. A. Galbraith, of Michigan, was
a knitter. She knit stockings on a
hand machine for thc family. Then
she had an idea���there was a distinct field for this article when manufactured and sold direct to the
wearer. She put her husband and
sons to knitting on two small machines in- the home kitchen and started on thc selling end of it.
From door to door she -went, for
she was of the pushing kind. Her
salesmanship never rested; everyone
was a possible customer and she
went after him or her with all die
energy she possessed. Her idea, "Direct from mill to home," made a hit,
and from thc two small hand machines and $100 there has grown an
organization with 8,000 workers in
the field, and 600 knitting machines
of the largest type in a hustling,
buzzing factory which covers many
acres of ground���the largest in the
world that; manufactures knit goods
and sells direct from factory to consumer.
Purest Water is
Found in Fruit
Juice of Oranges as Diet Performed
One of thc greatest advantages of
fruit is that it offers us pure water,
for which we do not need a filter, to
thc amount of 50 pcr cent, in berries
and 92 pcr cent, in watermelons.
Oranges and lemons are not only
valuable by reason of their potash
salts, but especially for their citric
acid.. A case of paralysis of the entire right side is reported where the
juice of oranges, adopted as a regular diet, with chicken broth, appeared to perforin wonders. As an aid
to digestion���a really material aid���
the pineapple stands alone among
the fruit. Its vegetable pepsin neutralizes���or, perhaps, rather, digests
���albuminous substances in the
stomach. Fresh pineapple, - or, better still, the fresh juice of one���
placed in direct contact with eggs,
or gelatine, or milk, will prove this
fact conclusively by producing a bitter-tasting dish. In cases of catarrhal ailments of the throat, and in its
downward connection, the alimentary canal or tract, pineapple cannot
be over-estimated, and it acts with
equal force in malarial affections. As
for the date and the banana, they
contain sufficient nutriment to sustain life, The salts and organic acids
in the apple tend to improve the
quality of  the blood.

Refugees in Silks and Sables
Pathetically Incongruous Figures in
the Italian Retreat
Amid all the chaos of the Italian
retreat one kept on meeting utterly
incongruous, figures, for with all the
world road worn, shabby and dirty,
to bc clean and well dressed is to
bc* grotesque.
Amid this multitude of haggard,
unwashed, unshaven, dead beat
males, I noticed two- Italian ladies
treading delicately over the rough
ballast of the railway track. They
had naturally brought with them in
their flight the most valuable of their
possessions, which were of a kind to
be more conveniently carried on
their persons. Against this gray
background of mud ahd rubbish and
a disbanded army their two figures
glittered with a brilliance that would
have been conspicuous in the Rue de
la Paix.
Heavy sable furs and muffs almost bowed their shoulders. Each
finger had two or three rings that
flashed in the light: Round their
necks were gold chains hung with
pendants.. And yet, instead of the
air of self-satisfied ostentation that
might well have.gone with a display
so lavish, they were only two pathetically little, frightened, perplexed
faces, and an uncertain gait that did
not promise much further progress
along that ankle-wrenching railway
line.���G. Ward Price, in the Century

Russian Crazy-Quilt Farms
Peasants Always Claimed the Land
As Their Own
Russian life has always been patriarchal, and the villagers live as one
great family. The idea of the undivided ownership "of land dates back
almost a thousand years. Even when
held as serfs, the peasants always
claimed the land as their own. "We
are yours," they said, "but the land
is ours." When the peasants^ were
freed, sections of land were given to
each village. This is parceled out to
the various families every few years
by the village elders. If the land is
of unequal fertility, each family is
given an allotment of both the best
and the poorest soil, in the effort
to administer absolute impartiality.
As a result the land is frequently divided into very narrow strips. They
may be as" wide as fifty yards, but I
have seen many not more than .'--rce
yards wide.

Keeping the Issue Clear
Little Fear of the Democratic Masses
Becoming War-weary -
A condition.of affairs has come
about in .which the truly democratic
elements.of the western nations havc
thc most at stake in thc outcome of
thc war. A victory over German imperialism is more than ever essential
it a deadly blow is not to be struck
at_ democratic ideals and democratic
principles reduced to practice. Even
the Berlin Vorwacrts, the German
Socialist organ, seems to understand
that, for it predicts as a result of
Gentian territorial and economic
conqucsis at the expense of revolutionary Russia "new threats and desire for revenge, :���. increased.;:., ariua-
meiits.aiuriiitensificd .reaction'-. in-our

World, then the .world will.--be-'.- regarded as. getting "what it deserves
and will soon be broken to thc discipline of the  Prussian drillmaster.
In such a struggle as is now forecast, there need be little fear of the
democratic masses becoming ' war-
wcary before lhe classes which have
I been too exclusively, perhaps, iii the
'past, the possessors of worldly-com*
fort and privilege." For democracies
will fight the more fiercely for ideals
and aspirations rather than for

Unbreakable Thread   Which   Unites

"Thc comradeship of the air has
sDtin one more strand in that invisible but unbreakable thread Avhich

This was Major Baud's peroration
when, as under-secrctary to the air
ministry, hc presented the estimates
of the air force to the house of commons last week. In the preceding
sentence Major Baird had specifically mentioned the part of Canadian
airmen in this new empire comradeship, but if it bc true, as Canadian
airmen declare, that the percentage
of Canadians in thc R.F.C. and R.N.
A.S. is from 30. to 50 per cent, ot
the whole number in these forces, it
seems strange that thc undcr-secre-
tary should have given pride of
place to Australia, and have lumped
Canada with South Afri a, New Zealand and India. Wc are not greedy,
but there is a proportion to bc observed in parliamentary as well as
military mentions. Perhaps Australia owes her parliamentary precedence to thc fact that Major Baird
was able to speak of Australian "flying squadrons which have rendered
invaluable service at thc front." We
shall bc glad to hear that Canadians
also arc lo be given the opportunity
of flying in -their own Canadian
squadrons.���From the Canadian Gazette, London.

Danger in Beans
Prussic Acid in    Beans    Grown    in

Mr. A. McGill, Dominion analyst,
has advised thc government to exercise care in connection with the importation of beans grown in warm

large amount of prussic acid they
contain. His recommendation, which
has been acted upon, forbids thc delivery of any beans found to yield
more than 20 parts of prussic acid
pcr 100,000. Of 532 samples of beans
recently examined 240 samples contained ho prussic acid and all other
samples a small quantity. Only 19
samples, however, contained ' more
than 20 parts of prussic acid pcr 100,-
000. A number of cases of- illness
havc resulted from the use of beans
containing prussic acid. "These
beans," says the report,'"are mainly

arc finding their way eastwards; already practically monopolizing thc
markets as far cast as Manitoba."

Why the German Plan for Peace Is
In every announced arrangement
for separate peace between thc Germans and the countries on their
eastern front may be discerned the
promise of future' war. Peace with
Russia, with the Baltic provinces left
iu German possession, with Ukraine,
looking to a further partition of
Poland; wilh Roumania, at the price
of Russian territory; all these moves
are announced, and none of them but
promises trouble to come. In each
the imposition of the power of the
conqueror on thc will of the conquered is the basis on which or��ler
is to bc restored, all on terms finally
of advantage lo Germany. In thc
struggles between the smaller peoples, sure to follow such a settlement
the Germans would have little or no
interest, save to renew thc profitable
practice of selling arms to both sides.
These provinces left under German
domination may find in the past a
promise of their future. This is why
the German plan for peace is impossible. America is concerned in tho
map of Europe only to thc stability
of whatever adjustment of world relations follows this war. German
plans as at present outlined very likely will be so regarded when the time
for settlement comes.���From tho

Ancient Bolsheviki

ruined their city by attempting to
conduct war by debate in the market place. Like thc French republic,
tlicy put their successful commanders to death. They treated their dependencies with such injustice that

They plundered the rich until

War Tapestries
Will Depict in Detail    the    Stirring
Incidents of the Great War
The famous tapestry depicting thc
conquest of England by William of
Normandy bids faid to have many j
rivals as a record of military cus- '
tonis and costumes. This motive, to
chronicle thc times, is, iir a certain
measure, behind a new movement in
England for the revival of tapestry
weaving after the war. It is proposed to hang panels of tapestry in
churches, universities, public schools
and other buildings as memorials to
the soldiers and sailors who answered the call to arms. These tapestries will depict in detail thc stirring
incidents of the great war, and at
the same time help to preserve for
future generations much interesting
data concerning Twentieth Century
uniforms, equipment, aeroplanes, and
so on. Many artists and craftsmen
will no doubt bc glad to take up the
work, and a widespread appeal may
soon be made to students of literature, the drama, music, architecture,
painting and sculpture, lo co-operate.
Only thc finest designs and most
perfect  weaving are contemplated.

Undersea Walls
Would Protect  High   Seas  "ftgainst
German Submarines
__ To protect the high seas against
German submarines, a Scotch engineer comes forward, in thc March
Popular Mechanics magazine, with a
daring proposal that is interesting if
for no other reason than its sheer
stupendousness. Hc presents plans
for thc construction of an enormous
underwater wall that would extend
from thc Friesian Islands to a point
off the coast of Schleswig, 80 miles
distant, and pass well to thc . westward of Heligoland. Such a structure would block thc exits from
Wilhclmshaven, Cuxhaven, thc Kaiser Wilhclm Canal and neighboring
bases, and prevent naval vessels of
all kinds from reaching the ship
lanes in the North Sea and Atlantic
The wall would bc built of reinforced concrete in about a thousand
bargclike sections which would bc
towed to thc proper positions, filled
with stone, and sunk end to end.
Great obstacles would havc to bc
overcome in carrying out such an
elaborate scheme in thc face of war

Dame Clement Collin Tells Why She
Recommends Them to Her
Friends���How They Have Made
Their Reputation
Brechc A Manon, Que., (Special)
���Among the    .   many       friends
Dodd's Kidney Pills have made in
this part of Quebec is Dame Clement
Collin, a well-known resident of this
place.' "I received great relief from
Dodd's Kidney Pills," is the reason
she gives for always recommending
thc j<Dodd's Kidney Pills to her friends,
and she adds that a great deal of her
health and vigor is due to the help
she got from the great Canadian
kidney  remedy.
Dodd's Kidney i'ills hold thsir
popularity not because of the promises they .make, but because of the
good they do. They are no curc-alJ.
They are purely and simply a kidney remedy. Thc reason they are
credited with cures of rheumatism,
heart disease, dropsy, etc., is because all these diseases arc caused
by sick kidneys. Cure the kidneys,
and thc cause of the disease is removed.
Dodd's Kidney Pills have made
their reputation as a kidney remedy
by the cures they have made. Ask
your friends about them.

Tropical Forests
��     ���������������-
Forested  Regions of Amazon  River
Is the Largest in the World
There are at least two very large
forest regions in thc tropiccs. These
arc the Amazon region of South
America and the Lido-Malay region
of southeastern Asia and adjacent
islands. The forested regions of the
Amazon river basin comprising an
area of 1,600,000 square miles is the
largest in the world. Thc forested
area of Borneo, Sumatra, thc Philippine Islands, thc Malay _ Peninsula
and Burma is roughly estimated to
be not less than 500,000 square miles,
or nearly as large as that of thc
United Slates. Thus thc forested
area of these two tropical regions
alone comprises more than 2,000,000
square miles. Contrary to the usual
opinion, it is claimed that tropical
forests arc not all composed of hard
woods, fit only for special imposes,
but that they have a much larger
percentage of soft and medium, hard
woods which it is quite practicable
to develop economically.

To Save Leather
Britain Places a Ban on High Boots
for Ladies
The British order limiting the
height of ladies' boots is interesting
chiefly because it is the first attempt
made by the government to regulate
dress. Will it end there? One can
easily think of half a dozen fashions
affected by both sexes which arc extravagant and not infrequently unsightly. It is only necessary to walk
along a fashionable shopping street
to be convinced that, apart from any
peculiar mode, thc general desire for
smartness of dress is using up a
great amount of material and labor
which at this moment could bc employed much more profitably in thc
national interest. Thc appeals to
economize in clothes have not found
any lodgment in certain social strata. Indeed it is no exaggeration to
say that in Manchester today there
may bc seen more expensively dressed people than could be found before the war.
Whether anything will bc done to
prevent this waste remains to be
seen. The government has dealt
with boots obviously because a recent fashion was responsible for the
extravagant use of a very valuable
and scarce material. The boot with
abnormally high "uppers" seems to
have resulted from thc short skirt.
In the opinion of the boot trade
these high boots were worn merely
because they were considered smart;
they would never have come into
vogue if the skirt had not been shortened; they had no value if they could
not be seen. Many thousands of
boots made on this pattern are being
sold in the shops today. # Smart women will take no other kind. So that
the order limiting thc height- to 7
inches for leather uppers will effect
a considerable economy in the use
of leather for civilian footwear.

The Only Englishman in an Area of

Thc man who thinks hc
loneliest job in all the war
cently on leave in London,
he was spending all his
hours walking the streets and look
ing at the crowds. Three years ago
he was a cog in London's commercial machine. Then hc went to Gal-
lipoli. Now hc is attached to the
Sudanese army near the Abyssinian
and Belgian-Congo frontiers. lie is
the only Englishman in an area of
200 miles and none of thc native
troops in his command can speak
English. He has a smattering of
Arabic and his only conversation is
in that language. Some of his men,
who, hc says, are fine soldiers, were
enemies not many years ago. In an
interview reported by the Manchester Guardian he remarked that thc
very sight of crowds was a luxury
after his experience. His chief diversion in Africa is playing "patience," although this is diversified
by incidental Hon hunting i..*d the
casual chance of shooting other big
game. None the less he could say
that while "the loneliness gets on my
nerves occasionally, on thc whole I
like thc job, and we get sonic jolly
little scraps which arc not reported
in the newspapers. Still I should
welcome thc society of a war correspondent or two." Which possibly goes to show that even in the
desert the newpaper has its uses.���

the    Railways    are    Rigorously
Guarded by German Troops
A. traveller wha lias just arrived
in Holland from Luxemburg, but
maintaining great relicciise states
that thc country is in thc hands of
a sort of German gendarmerie. Thc
Germans have established a control
which lias all thc appearance of being intended as a permanent institution. All thc railways are rigorously
guarded by German troops. Relations between thc civil population
and thc Germans arc very cool, public sentiment being more anti-Gcr-
mnii than ever. In some cafes in
the town of Luxemburg people
sometimes softly start a song which
ends "Wc won't be Prussians." Food
is scarce.but not quite-so scarce, as
in (iennany. Some anxiety is felt
and expressed lest after the war the
cntctite should decline to bother
themselves with Luxemburg and
leave the  country in  German  hands.

Eclidse of the Sun
The eclipse of the sun on Saturday, June 8, will last about 2-h
hours altogether at Greenwood
from 2.10 p. ni.. when the moon
starts to come iu front of the sun
till 5.10, when it passes off on the
opposite side. The round shadow
of the moon, about 60 miles across,
passes over the United States at
from 30 to GO miles a minute, beginning at the coast of Washington and finishing at Florida. There
will not be one that is total in Canada (that is, in which the shadow
of the moon actually passes across
the Dominion) until August 31,
1932. It is noteworthy that there
ha? not been a total exclipse in
England since 1724, but there will
be one in 1927, though the time of
total darkness will only be seven
In this week's eclipse it is necessary to travel down to Eastern
Oregon to see it total. It lasts for
just 2 minutes, during which there
will be total darkness, and the
stars will come out as night. The
best way to view the eclipse is to
prepare a piece of smoked glass,
and to do this is to take a piece of
camphor, about the size of a pea,
light it, and hold the glass iu the
smoke. Through this the sun can

Purpose and Application
CANADA faces the gravest crisis in her history. Four years of war have taken from
the Dominion a heavy toll in talent and labor, yet despite the shortage of man
power, our Allies still depend on Canada to maintain her own fighting forces at full
strength and to increase her exports of food and war materials, so vital to them, and to
the successful prosecution of the war.
Every ounce by which Canada can increase her food production and every ounce Canada
can save in her food consumption is needed for export to the Allies.
Should the war continue for another year, food cards and a rationing system may have to
be instituted.   It is the duty of Canada to be prepared for whatever situation circumstances
may force upon her.
It is quite probable that before the war is won our Government may,have to place
restrictions upon the occupations in which men and women may engage. In such an
event the Government wishes to be in a position to render all possible assistance in
keeping our population usefully and profitably employed.
Registration Day, June 22nd
so that every available unit of human energy maybe
utilized to the best advantage.
The information procured through registration will
These conditions point to the necessity of Canada
knowing the exact capabilities of her men and
women at home.
All persons residing in Canada, male or female,
British or alien of 16 years and over, will be required
to register on June 22nd and truthfully answer__Jhe
questions set forth upon the registration card.
It is not the Government's intention to conscript
labour in any form, but to assist in directing it wisely,
be used���as an aid to the Military Authorities in procuring the men necessary to maintain "Canada's
First Line of Defence"���to mobilize all units of avail*
able labor in the Dominion and direct them from less
essential to more essential occupations���to establish
ancl intelligently administer a system of food rationing
should that become necessary.

With the greater activity throughout the province, consequent on war time needs, the telephone "has been a great
. adjunct to the speedy termination of business, It supplements
personal effort to the last degree, in fact its usefulness almost
speaks for itself., That it is such a great utility, facilitating
endeavor along every line, is due to the co-operative human
element behind the scenes which makes the valuable, inanimate equipment intensely useful.
The aim is to make the telephone of the greatest use and
convenience to every urer. .
