Returned Soldier!
It is estimated that it coats the
government $2,000 to outfit a soldier and send him to England. No
man who has been to England only
is worth the money, observes
"The Comrade," published at
Vancouver. "The words 'returned Boldier,' as published in the
press these days, may mean anything," says the editor. "For instance the man who has never been
out of Vancouver can be called a
'returned soldier,' and generally
likes to be called that. Other men,
too, who have never been any fur-
to a
feher than England take on
care worn  look  that comes

Today, to some minds is always
commonplace; They look to the
past for romance, in history, in
literature. They look to the future as holding greait things���but
today is without grandeur or
beauty. Yet every suhlimest yesterday was once just a dusty today,
for all who did not see its possibilities.

Budapest newspaper at  Est.
"I cherish firm confidence that
future events in thc west will bring
us nearer a speedy end of the war.
"If the world should one day unite
in an international peace league,"
added Count . von Hertling, "Germany would unhesitatingly and joyfully join in it. Unfortunately, present conditions give very-little hope
of that. Our desire is to preserve
pence." .

Kipling On the Huns
Thcy  Believe  That  Evil   Pays,   ancl
They Must Be Disabused of
This   Idea
People who have been brought up
to make organized evil in every form
their supreme good because thcy believe that evil will pay them are not
going to change their belief till it is
proved that evil does not pay. So
tar, the Hun believes lhat evil has
paid liim in the past and will pav
him better in the future. He lias had
a good start. Like lhc Thug, the
Hun knew exactly what lie meant 10
do before he opened his campaign
against mankind. As we have proof
now, his poisoned sweetmeats ant!
knotted towels were prepared years
beforehand, and his spies had give 11
him the fullest information about all
the people he intended to attack. So
he is doing what is right in his own
eyes. He thought out thc hell hc
wished to create; he built it up seriously and scientifically with his best
hands and brains; he breathed into
it his own spirit, that it might grow
with his needs; and at the hour that
he judged best hc let it loose on a
world that till then had believed
there were limits beyond which men
dared not  sin.
Nine-tenths of the. atrocities Germany has committed havc not been
made public. I think this a mistake.
But one gets hint of them here and
there���Folkestone has had more than
a hint. For instance, we were told
thc other day that more than 14,000
English non-combatants, men, women and children, had been drowned, burned, or blown to pieces since
the war began. But wc havc no conception--and till thc veil is lifted after thc war wc shall havc no conception���of the range and system of
these atrocities. Least of all shall
wc realize, as _ they realize in Belgium and occupied France just across
the water, thc cold organized miseries which Germany has laid upon
thc populations that have fallen into
her hands, lhat she might break their
bodies and defile tlicir souls. That is
part of thc German creed. What understanding is possible with a breed
thqt have worked for and brought
about these things? And so long as
thc Germans are left with any excuse
for thinking that such things pay,
can any peace bc made with them hi
which men. can trust? None. For it
is thc peculiar, essence of German
kultur, which is thc German religion,
that it is Germany's moral duty lo
break every tic, every restriction,
that binds man to fellow-man if she.
thinks it will pay. Therefore, all
mankind must be. against her till she

Tlie readers of this paper will be pleased
to learn that there is at least one dreaded
disease that science has been able to cure in
all its stages, and that is catarrh. Catarrh
being greatly influenced by constitutional
conditions requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally and
acts through the Blood on the Mucous Surfaces of the System, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, giving the patient
strength by building up the constitution ana
assisting nature in doing its work. The proprietors have so much faith in the curative
powers of Hall's Catarrh Cure that they offer
One Hundred Dollars for any case that it

No Thoroughfare
Barring the Path of the Hun on the
West Front
All things arc possible with faith,
as the.French roved at Verdun and
our old regular army at Ypres; and
here there is a two-fold faith. There
is thc nation's faith in its chosen and
beloved children, and. those children's faith in all that is noble and
true. Through them'.-."heroism has
been born such as history has never
known." Their task is . hard and
heavy, but they have shown already
that there burns in them "something
high and resplendent which one associates with the stories of old saints
or heroes," and this will bring-."them
through.'."' The French at. Verdun
swore, "Thcy shall not pass!" Our
incn use homely laiiguage. "No
thoroughfare" is their motto; and
thev will make it good.���London

Cincinnati man tells how to dry
up a corn or callus so it
'   lifts off with fingers.
You corn-pestered men and women
need suffer no long..-. Wear the shoes
that nearly killed you before, says
this Cincinnati authority, because a
few drops of frcezone applied directly
on a tender, aching corn or callus,
stops soreness at once and soon the
corn or hardened callus loosens so it
can be lifted off, root and all, without pain.
A small bottle of frcezone costs
very little at any drug store, but will
positively take off every hard or sofi
corn or callus. This should bc tried,
as it is'inexpensive and is said not to
irritate the  surrounding skin.
lf your druggist hasn't any freezone

Making- the Forest Fireproof
Rangers Appeal to Public   to   Keep
Vigilant Lookout for Small
Several forest fires havc already
occurred in various parts of Canada
this year. Jn practically every case
the cause was traced to human hands
���a tossed-away cigarette, a neglected campfirc, or similar act that at
thc moment appeared trifling. Settlers, anxious to burn their 'slash' in
the hottest weather without obeying
government regulations are a prolific
cause  of forest fires every year.
Thc rangers of this province arc
asking the co-operation of every man,
woman and child this year so as to
keep thc forest losses down to a minimum as a matter of decent patriotism. Special efforts are being made
to provide fire fighting equipment but
thc main task is to prevent fires from
starting. This is a comparatively
simple matter if every camper puts
out his campfirc, every smoker extinguishes his cigarette and match
before tossing away, every settler
guards Ids clearing fire. When a
bush fire is seen, instant word should
bc sent to the nearest fire janger,
railroad agem or municipal officer.
To Kill the Fly
Several Suggestions for the Destruction of Houseflics
Nobody has now any excuse for
not knowing how dangerous a .crca-
ture_ is thc common housefly; as a
carrier of disease his capacity for
evil is next to unbounded. How best
and surest to exterminate this filthy
pest is told in detail iu a pamphlet
which_ the United States government issues. Several suggestions for
the destruction of houseflics arc
"Formaldehyde and sodium salicylate are the two best fly poisons;
both arc superior to arsenic." Directions for preparing and using thc
solutions arc given, with the useful
"Any odor pleasing lo man is offensive to thc fly and will drive him
Suggested, precautions are the
spraying .f oil of lavender and water in equal parts around thc house;
in thc dining room, even upon the
linen. "The odor is disagreeable to
flics and refreshing to most people.
Geranium, mignonette, heliotrope and
white clover arc offensive to flies;
they especially ' dislike thc. odor of
honeysuckle and hop blossoms. According to a French scientist, flies
havc au intense hatred for the color
blue and will stay out of a room
decorated in that color. To clear
thc house of flics burn pvrcthruin
powder; this stupefies thc flies, but
thcy must be swept up and burned."
Among other suggestions the value of borax scattered out of doors is
urged. It should bc scattered in a
10 pcr cent, solution and will neither
injure manure heaps nor thc farm
stock. In every way and at all
times everybody should do his share
to exterminate thc fly. Swat him by
all means, but burn his carcass.���

Civilian Army Behind Lines
Plan   to    Carry    Out     Engineering
Work and Release U. S.
Far-reaching plans for  the organization in France of a civilian   labor
force to carry out engineering    work
behind thc lines thus releasing American soldiers  for duty at the    front,
were announced    recently.      Already
more than  16,000 French, Italian and
either laborers free front military obligations have been engaged and put
to work on some of the approximately, one  thousand:   engineering     construction and reconstruction jobs  on
which  Americans" were    being     employed.
Thc move is the initial step in a
plan long contemplated and discussed to free tonnage for other purposes by creating a civilian army be-,
hind thc lines which may eventually
total a queirterof a million incn, entirely, if possible, recruited from
abroad. This will make it necessary
to import American civilian labor.
The incn already procured comprise
a . dozen nationalities, including
Chinese, and thc'Moroccans, who arc
being shipped to France as rapidly
as the Americans need them.

Grim Tenacity of Those Who Held
Out to the End
The cost of resistance is heavy,
and the sacrifices will bc great. But
it is thc way of honor and thc way
of ultimate safety for thc world. In
thc Napoleonic struggle some nations obtained tempcrary respites by
submitting to the conqueror and
even changing over to his side. But
the peace and settled order which
they sought \. as only in thc long
run obtained by thc grim tenacity of
those who held out and persisted to
the end. Wc have the same issue before us today with different protagonists, and however long the road

Submarine Cable Relaying
Islands Must Be   Found   for   Relay
The longest continuous stretch of
submarine cable now working, lhat
is, without relay, is 3,458 nautical
miles���that from Vancouver to Fanning Island iu lhc Pacific, and the
average distance without relay is
much less than this. It is evident,
therefore, that on the long transoceanic cables such as those across the
Pacific, islands must be found for
relay stations. This explains the rivalry of certain European nations
for the possession of small, solitary
islets, scarcely more than mere rocks,
and useless except foi: just such a
purpose as this. JLTiis was the reason for Germany's acquisition of thc
Caroline and Marianne islands and
later of one of the Samoa group, at
the time of our war with Spain.
Similarly, England is to be found in
possession of conveniently placed islands all over the world.���The Americas.

than that of the Mediterranean and
it has no outlet. The water of the

Work of Demagogism
The Man Who Holds on to the Coat
Tails  of a Demagogue Is a
Public Enemy
It seems to be the province of
demagogism to make life so easy that
citizenship has no cares. It proposes all sorts of laws that relieve
the individual and leave him without any duties to perform. It makes
an animal out of him and puts him
in a pen and feeds and fattens him
up. That is what sonic people want.
Thai is all the politics some people
have. And thus demagogism is a
busy part of politics. Platforms
and political  speeches are  full oi it.
The manly duty is left out. The
courage to do one's part and to deny
oneself is hardly considered. And
yet true citizenship is a self-denial.
It turns its back on a selfish purpose, and a chance to grasp. It
represents a high ideal, an uplift, a
manly aspiration. Thc trouble with
customary politics is that the main
issue is what it will do for mc, mc,
me. That is ignoble citizenship and
dirty politics. There is something
positive in thc character of a patriotic citizen, and he should show it

the.row   or  patch  is  covered      with
straw   three  or   four  days after    the

You   Can    Improve    Your   Physical
Condition by Keeping the
Blood Pure
People with strong constitutions
escape most oi the minor ills that
make life miserable for others. Don't
you envy the friend who does not
knovy what a headache is, whose digestion is perfect, and who sleeps
soundly at night? How far do you
comc from this description? Have
you ever made an earnest effort to
strengthen your constitution, to build
up your system, to ward off discomfort and disease? Unless you have
an organic disease it is generally possible, to so improve your physical
condition that ;. erf eel health will be
yours. The first thing to bc done is
to build up your bloocl as poor blood
is the sonrcc of physical weakness.
To build up the blood Dr. Williams'
Pink Tills is just the medicine you
need. Every dese helps to make new
blood which reaches every nerve and
every part of thc body, bringing color to the cheeks, brightness to the
eyes, a steadiness to thc hands, a
good appetite and splendid energy.
Thousands throughout the country
whose conditions once made them
despair, owe their present good
health, to this medicine. If you arc
one of the weak and ailing give Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills a fair trial and
note the daily gain in new health
and abounding vitality. Among those
who have proved the truth of these
statements is Mrs. Fred Goslin, R.R.
No. 2, Ruthven, Ont., who says:���"A
few years ago I underwent an operation for a fibroid tumor. I had been
ailing so long that I ditl not gain as
the doctors said I should. I was in
such a rundown condition, that they
said it would take mc a- very long
time to recover. But instead of gaining, I .was" growing weaker, and the
doctor said 1 must go back to the
hospital. I did not want to do this,
and having often heard of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills as a strength builder 1 decided to try them. I was
greatly surprised at the help I received from them. In three months I
was able to go about, aud our home
doctor expressed his astonishment, as
he had not expected mc lo recover
believing pernicious; anaemia had set
in. It took mc about a year to recover my full strength, but ever
since I havc been doing iny own
housework, and have lo give Dr.
WTUiams' Pink Pills the praise for
my present.slate of good health."
You can get these pills through
any medicine dealer or by mail post
paid at 50 cents a box. or six boxes
for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams'
Medicine  Co.,  Brockviile,  Ont.

Preserving Eggs
Superority    of    the      Lime      Water
Method Clearly  Demonstrated
Last year a circular, "How lo
Preserve l-'ggs,' 'was written by Professor Herner of .Manitoba Agricultural College. This circular met with
a great demand, and the first edition  has   been  exhausted.
During thc past year new work in
testing methods of egg preserving
have been carried on, and in publishing a second edition of the circular
Prof. Herner adds these observations:
1917-18     l-'.xpcrimenlal     Work      in J
Preserving   Eggs.���The   experimental
work  in  preserving  eggs  by different
methods,   which     was   carried   on   by
the poultry department of the. Maui"-*
tolia Agricultural College during   the j
past  season,    again  corroborates   the
statements  made     in     regard  to   the
various   methods  of  preserving.
The. superiority of the lime water
method was again clearly demonstrated. Thc eggs came out of the
preservative, in far heller condition
than those preserved in water glass.
All eggs were, put in the same preservatives at the same time, and kept
in the same, length of lime. Thc lime
water eggs were firmer in the yolk
and white than the water glass eggs.
Tlicy poached for better, and were
of better quality and flavor than the
water glass eggs. In many of the
eggs preserved in water glass the
yolks had settled lo one side and
stuck to the shell. In opening these
eggs the yolks would break, making
it impossible to poach them. The
while was also cpiite thin and watery, thus making it epiile difficult lo
poach or fry them properly. The
lime water eggs were decidedly superior in these points.
Sonic eggs were preserved in a
lime and salt solution with excellent results. In fact, in the experiment these eggs were better than
those out of the lime water, and far
superior to  the water glass eggs.
Besides the three liquid preservatives mentioned here we also preserved one lot of eggs by immersing
them in boiling water three times for
a second or two each time. They
wcrc then put iu a hunipty dumpty
egg crate and set away in a cool
room. Another lot of eggs were
simply wrapped iu paper and put in
an ordinary box. Both these lots
were preserved two months after thc
three other lots of eggs were put
in lhe preservatives. Thc live lots
were, however, tested out at the.
same lime, thus making the period
of preservation longer for the first
three  lots than  the last two.
The eggs dipped in the boiling
water showed an enormous amount
of evaporation. The yolks were
heavy and cloudy, and had settled to
the side of the shell. When the. eggs
were opened to fry, thc yolks stuck
so hard to the shell that it was impossible to get them out: without:
breaking. These eggs were very
much, inferior to cold, storage eggs.
W:c could not recommend this way
of preserving, if thc best quality of
preserved eggs is desired, lliey may
keep all right, but as far as poaching, boiling or even, frying is concerned, thcy arc out of the question.
Wrapping' the eggs in paper gave us
very poor results. Quite a number
of the eggs went bad, and all the
others were of very inferior, quality.
The contents of the eggs evaporated
to about two-thirds of their original
bulk, and the yolks were extremely
heavy and cloudy. .''*..
All these experimental eggs were
kept under, the same conditions in
the. same room.

Train Ferry for
English Channel
Inauguration Indicates That the Difficulties  Have  Been
For lhc first time in thc history of
railroading a train ferry has crossed
the English channel f-oiu Nevvhavcn,
England, to Dieppe, France, carrying
about 50 cars. Since early in the
war thousands of British railway
cars have been employed in France
in transporting troops and supplies,
but thcy have all been transferred to
thc continent by freighters. Thc inauguration of ferry service indicates
that the difficulties created by very
pronounced tides havc been overcome at last to thc mutual advantage
of these two allies. At Dieppe the
water level varies as much as 31 feet.
To overcome this, short bridges, attached at one end to thc dock and
resting on large floats, arc employed. During loading and unloading
the ferry is chained to thc float ancl
dock pier as ivcll. The two smokestacks are located one at cither side
of the craft, leaving space for tracks

of  women's  work in  munition    production,  Frederick  George Kclhuvay-,
j secretary to the minister    of    muni-
itionsj  said  that iu  every  one  of  the
j defensive    measures    taken    when  a
\ raid on  London is  carried out     thc
; women have taken their part, except,
i in the actual flying of aircraft.
I     The development-.which'had  taken
. place  iu   women's   work  during    the
last   14  months/ continued   the     secretary,   was   quite  as   remarkable    as
it s ��� _dcve! eminent. ..at. an ..earlier-, period
i of. the.'war.    In July,.. 1914, he stated,
there   were   _'20,l)()0   women    engaged
in   munition   industries;  while, in  January,  1917, that    number    had    been

The following vision of Inger
soil's will never come true until
the slaves of church, state, society,
fear, worry, greed, selfishness and
poverty have broken their chains
and become free. T.ien the earth
will climb into heaven, and hell
will evaporate like shadows before
the rising sun.    Ingersoll says:
"I see a world where thrones
have crumbled and where kings
are dust, and where the aristocracy
of idleness has perishe.l from the
earth. I see a world without a
slave, man at last is free; nature
has by science been enslaved,
lightning and light, wind and
wave, frost and flame, and all the
secret subtle powers of earth and
air have become ihe tireless toilers
of the human race. I see ia world
at peace, adorned in every form of
art, with music's myriad voices
thrilled and lips aflame with words
of love and truth. I see a world
in which no exile sighs, no prisoner mourns; where labor gets its
full reward; where work and worth
go hand in hand, and where the
poor girl, trying to wiu her bread
with the needle is not driven to
the desperate choice of crime or
death or suicide or shame. I see
a world without the beggar's outstretched palm, the misers stony,
heartless glare, the piteous wail of
want, fehe livid lips of lies, the
cruel eyes of scorn. I see a race
without disease of flesh or brain,
shapely and fair, married harmony
of form and function, and as I
look life lengthens, joy deepens,
and love canopies the earth, and
over all, in the high dome, shines
the eternal star of  human hope."
all the faults of my
husband aud none of his virtues."

In every military hospital in the
United States where pneumonia,
bronchitis, meningitis, meaBles
and mumps are treated each bed is
curtained off and each patient and
each attendant wears a face mask.
And now another part of the
campaign is being waged. The
official bulletin for April 5 says:
"Respiratory diseases having caused practically all the sick rate and
death rate in the nation's new
armies, the medical corps has begun a nation wide campaign of prevention against pneumonia, measles, diptheria, mumps, meningitis,
infantile paralysis, influenza and
tuberculosis." All of the diseases
mentioned are spread or communicated in the same way���through
the transfer of nasal and mouth
secretions. The sickness rate
in camps through the country could
be cut to the minimum if the soldiers and the general public as well
stopped promiscuous sneezing,
coughing and spitting."
The plan means that colds are to
be regarded as a matter of moment.

It is "Don't Cough, Don't Sneeze,

more good thau did that hoary old
slogan. The advice goes even
farther, however. Wheu a man
talks even quietly he sends out a
fine atomizen vapor from his lips.
If the speaker talks loudly and excitedly, the speech becomes even
more explosive, then the fine droplets laden with microbes are sent
much farther into the air. How
