fresh and clean, not washed clean,
but laid clean. It the shell of an egg
is not clean, use it at once. It" there
is ;\ spot of soil on the shell, the
water glass does not come in contact with thc shell and thc egg will
A quart of water glass in a five-
gnlLon crock or agate-ware container
will suffice for 15 dozen eggs. Clean
the crock thoroughly, scakf till hot,
wipe dry and stand in the sun, n
Boil 9 quarts or water, allow it to
cool thoroughly, then add thc water
glass and stir well in the crock.
Stand thc crock in a cool, dry place
and do not move unnecessarily after
the eggs are packed. Put thc cygs
loosely, but carefully, in thc solution,
leaving a depth, of two inches or
more over the top layer of the eggs.
Tio heavy oiled paper over the crock
to prevent evaporation. For more
than 15 dozen eggs, two crocks are
preferable to one larger one. After
using the water glass once, it must
bc   thrown  away.
It water glass is too expensive or
is unobtainable, add 3 pounds of un-
slucUcd lime t> 5 gallons of water.
After the lime has dissolved and settled, carefully dip off thc clear water
and pour over the eggs as with water glass.
Do not pour the water glass or
lime water over thc eggs till it has
thoroughly cooled.
A Mental Error
Where the Passenger Was When He
A well-known provincial paper in
linglatid makes itself responsible for
the following story:
Thc tramcar was hopelessly overcrowded, and several people, who had
achieved the iper deck, were transgressing all regulations  by  standing.
"Now, then," called out tltc girl
conductor with emphasis, "yott can't
stand  on   top."
"Well," said one literalist, smiling
blandly as he peered down the steps
"we are standing, whether wc" can or
not."     .   .   .".
The    girl    answered notliiiifc,    but
promptly pressed a button.    The cat-
jumped forward, and the literalist involuntarily took a scut on the floor.
y "There," said  thc girl,,   apparently
���.'..in'complete, go- cl humor, quoting tbe
barrister in a famous-. I>la3r, "yon
think you    can,    but    you    can't."���

Higher Heights to Climb
We arc only beginning to realize
thc danger confronting us, only beginning to understand thc full measure of thc task laid upon our people. Save aud serve, work and
serve. 'Tis but for a little while in
thc life of the individual, as a moment in the life of a nation; but it
is a little while in which all our energies, all our means must be bent to
a single purpose. Canada bas played
a noble part during nearly four years
but there remain yet higher heights
to climb.���Montreal Gazette.
An Impossible Amount
Some negroes were discussing the

Hog Raising Pays
Pork  at  Cost   of   $3.30   a   Hundred
Eight hundred hogs were marketed from the Dominion Experimental
Farm at Lacombe, Alberta, during
tbe twelve mouths ending April 30.
iir. Htitton, thc superintendent,
claims that pork was produced at a
cost of l?3.50 a hundred pounds on
alfalfa, with self-feeder for grain ration, and at $3.30 :i hundred pounds
on rape pasture, with self-feeder. A
comparison of the cost of raising
hogs in Alberta and thc price at
which thej' arc now selling, with the
cost of land, shows why hog raising
iu this province is a paying proposition.
Canadian Self-denial
AVhy the shortage of tonnage
forces the allies in Europe to rely
on this continent for food may be
explained by the fact that while

5,000 tons of food from here to Europe, 10,000 tons of shipping would

"Annie Laurie"
Like an echo out of the past comes
word of the popularity of "Annie
Laurie" with the British soldiers. "It
is the queen of songs in the
trenches," says Sir Alexander Mackenzie as quoted by The London
Chronicle. Thc men who fought under the "Iron Duke" were bound into deeper fellowship by singing "Annie-Laurie," and it is well that its
vogue should abide.���Springfield .Republican.
Canadian Captain Foils Hun
Captured by  Submarine He   Knocks
German Down and Dives
A solid Uritish list and the opportune arrival of an allied destroyer
saved Capt. D. J. McDonald, skipper
of thc three-masted" schooner John
G. Walter, now at the bottom of the
Atlantic, from being carried a prisoner iu a submarine  to Germany.
Captain McDonald told the story
on his arrival on a American steamship. _ Thc U-boat had fired a torpedo into the schooner, on her way
from a Canadian port lo Europe. Thc
submarine commander had ordered
Capt. McDonald, whose home is in
Prince Edward Island, into thc undersea craft. While some of the German crew were busy on the sinking
schooner, arranging to transfer
stores needed by the U-boat, the two
captains stood in the unclosed conning lower as spectators.
"I'm going to take you to Germany
for a spell r.nd see how you like it,"
the German commander informed
the  Briton.
"Are you?" queried Captain McDonald, whereupon hc swung his
fist to the German's jaw ancl, as the
U-boat commander fell stunned, McDonald climbed out of thc tower and
dived into the sea. Hc swam deep
to avoid being shot.
There was wreckage floating and
good fortune brought McDonald to
tbe surface behind it, so that hc was
hidden from the sight of the enraged submarine crew.
During their search for him a destroyer hove in sight and the Germans bad to abandon the schooner
and the U-boat fled.
A Boon for the Bilious.���Thc liver
is a very sensitive organ and easily

undue secretion of bile and the acrid
liquid flows into the stomach and
sours it. It is a most distressing ailment, and many are prone to it. In
this condition a man finds the best
remedy in Parmclce's Vegetable
Pills, which arc warranted to speedily correct the disorder. There is no
belter medicine in the entire list ot

Are Paying" Penalty
For Unpreparedness
Sir William Robertson Says    Every
Right-minded Person  Will
See War Through
_ "The war is likely to last a long
time yet," said General Sir William
R. Robertson, ex-chief of general
staff, speaking at a meeting in London. "How long it will last no sane
man would dan to estimate. One of
���the reasons why thc war was not
finished long ago is that we were
unprepared for it when it began,
j while the enemy had been preparing
for ycars. Wc are now paying thc
penally for that unpreparedness,
which in the past has caused countries to become bankrupt or ruined.
But we have no intention of becoming bankrupt or ruined.
"I know," Sir William concluded,
"that every right-minded person in
the empire has made up his mind to
see  the thing  through."

A Living Western Romance
Land Holdings Cover an Area Equal
to That of Some European
Geo. Lane is one of'the living ro-
niances of the West. Arriving there
in '84 as a hired cowboy, hc now
numbers. Jiis horses by the hundred
and his cattle by the thousand, while
bis personal land holdings and holdings in which he is associated with
others, cover an area equal to that
of some European principalities.
The T'ekisko Bar U ranch alone
where the Lane Pcrcherons arc kept,
covers 58,000 acres, of which 32,000
are deeded. The .Willow Creek Bar
U ranch, includes 20,000, acres of
freehold and 15,000 under' lease. The
Namako ranch has an area of 14,000
acres, of which 6,000 will this year
be in grain, and on this : property
Mr. Lane has his own ejevator.  .
In one year Mr. Lane has harvested 80,000 bushels of wheat, 50,-
000 bushels of oats, has put up 3,600
tons of hay, and, in company with
his associates, has marketed . 2,000
hogs and sent two full trainloads of
cattle to Chicago markets.;
Mr. Lane imported the first-' Pc'r-
chcrons into the Canadian West 38
years ago, and today hc has 353 of
these animals on Pekiskp Bar. U
This ranch is ideally located at the
beginning of ��� the ���-foothills of. lhc
Rockies. Headquarters- are situated
iii a cuplike-.formation,'., where surrounding timber and hills give shelter from storm arid a stream furnishes a" never-ending supply of pure
water, From a nearby elevation .'mile

to the west the towering white-capped, peaks of the. Rockies stand like

Minard's Liniment  Cures  Garget   in
Belg'an Relief
U. S. to Send Three Million Bushels
Wheat to Belgians
Food shipments to the civilian
populations of thc allied countries
will bc suspended for ten days to
move three million bushels of grain
to the Belgians, who arc declared to
be in desperate straits.
A part of the wheat will go lo the
populations in the German occupied
territory of Northern France. The
decision to concentrate on the shipment of this grain was made following the receipt of urgent cablegrams
from the Belgian relief'commission's
representative in Brussels. One of
the cables said: "Provided all shipments now en route arrive and provided an equal distribution between
all parts of the country, Belgium and
Northern. France will be without
bread from exotic grains for 20
Milk in the Hog Ration
Necessary to Exercise   Economy    in
the Use of Concentrated
In order to raise and finish all the
extra pigs that will bc farrowed in
Canada this year as a result of thc
campaign for increased production, it
will be necessary to exercise thc utmost economy in thc usc of concentrated foods. Pig raisers who havc
access to dairy by-products have a
great advantage over others. Experiments have proven lhat when meal
is worth $-10 a ton, milk is worth
more than ^8 for an equal weight,
that is, provided it is fed economically. Experiments carried on at the
Dominion Experimental Farms and
Stations show that for growing hogs,
60 pounds and over, -100 pounds of
skim milk produced results equal to
100 pounds of mixed meal. Buttermilk fed fresh is equal to skim milk.
Whey is not s>. valuable. One hundred pounds of whey was proved
equal to 19.2 pounds of milk, that is,
provided it is fed in not too large
quantities and before it has soured.
A study of experiments with skim
milk show that for young pigs 1
pound of milk fed with 2l/< or 3 lbs.
of meal gives best results. For larger
hogs less milk may bc used. For hogs
over 100 pounds in weight not more
than 5 pounds of skim milk daily
should be fed in order to get the
greatest value from thc milk.
At the Nova Scotia Agricultural
College it was shown that thc best-
gains were made by feeding a lot of
pig ration composed of 148 pounds.of
grain, 900 pounds of skim milk, and
110 pounds of mangels. At thc Ontario Agricultural College the best
results were obtained where the proportion of milk to meal was. 2.5 to 1.
In one trial in which tbis proportion
was used, 365 pounds of skim milk
were equal to 100 pounds of meal.
This agrees fairly closely with the
results obtained at thc Ottawa and
branch farms.
In a series of articles that appear
in thc May number of Thc Agricultural Gazette, both the Ottawa and
Guelph authorities agree that it does
not do to change the diet from sweet
to sour milk. For young pigs the
sweet milk is much to be preferred.
For larger pigs it seems to make little difference whether or not it is fed
sweet or moderately sour, provided,
whatever condition favored is uniformly kept up, that is to say, if thc
milk cannot be obtained always
sweet, then it should be fed sour as
a rule.

Dog Meat for British Urged
Lord Claud   Hamilton   Suggests  All
"Toy" Animals Be Killed

Lord Claud Hamilton suggested
recently in England that all toy
dogs be killed and eaten. He told
of having seen a woman dressed in
furs standing in a queue at a butcher's, while shc held five ribbons of
different colors lo which were attached as many dogs.
All, thc "'-doggy'-' folk immediately
protested against his suggestion, but
lie calmly replied through the medium of the press that the consumption of the dogs would help- the food
shortage, on thc one hand by providing a supply of edible food,and on
thc other by saving the amount of
food consumed by the animals.
This is only, one of several suggestions made in Britain in the interest
of food economy, but the agitation
has not met with much support. The
dog defenders have a large following.

Was  a Whimsical Distinction   That
Granted Women Immunity
No longer will female spies and
propagandists enjoy th'e immunity
under which' they have hitherto operated. The president's proclamation, pursuant to a recent congressional enactment, places fcinale enemy aliens on the same looting as
males. All the restrictions which
have been devised to-circumvent the.
male agents of kaiserism will now
apply to thc women who have been
as active and as dangerous as their
husbands and brothers  and fathers.
It was a whimsical distinction that
granted women immunity. It is gen-'
crall3r known that female spies and
propagandists arc frequently abler
and more dangerous than their male
co-workers. Yet, for more . than a
year after America entered the war,
there was no law under which these
enemies could bc dealt with.

Little French Boy
Died Like a Hero
Refused  to Give  Information to the
Huns  Who Shot Him
l.icut.-Gen. Sir Robert Badcu-
Powell, addressing a central meeting
of Hoy Scouts at Guild Hall, told of
work done by French Boy Scouts in
the neighborhood of thc fighting line.
A heroic deed by one French Boy-
Scout was described in a letter found
on the body of a. dead-German. General Baden-Powell read the letter,
which follows:
"A traitor has just been shot���a
little French lad belonging to one
of those gymnastic societies which
wears the Tri-color button. The
poor little fellow in his infatuation
wished to bc a hero. A German
column was passing along a. wooded
defile and the boy -was caught and
asked whether thc French were
about. He refused to give information. Fifty yards further on tire was
opened from thc cover, of the wood.
Thc prisoner was asked in French
if he had known that thc enemy was
in the forest and hc did not deny
it. Hc w-ent with a firm step to a
telegraph post and stood up against
it with a green vineyard behind him,
and received thc volley of thc firing
party with a proud smile on his
face. Infatuated boy! It was a pity
to sec such wasted courage."

arc in a position to have accurate
knowledge of the field in which they
and the Canadian press have grown
up. The present day condition o!
the publishing business of Canada
enables llic Dominion to boast the
largest reading public in the world
in proportion to population.
Besides giving full details iu regard to every newspaper and other
publication issued in Canada, the
Melvini directory shows in concise

section of llic Dominion. Its gazetteer contains a wealth of general information regarding every town and
city where a publication is issued,
giving populations, county scats,
railroads and waterways touching
each place, telegraph, express and
banking" facilities. With the aid of
its supplementary maps, it locates
every newspaper town in Canada,
and the deseriptions are so written
that these towns may readily be visualized by the reader in relation to
the territory in -which thcy are situated aiid.thc entire Dominion.
. Never before was the need and
value of up-to-date information about
thc Canadian market so essential,
and the 1918 edition of thc Canadian
Newspaper Directory comes to us at
a time when such facts as" it contains arc in great demand by the
far-sighted business men of the country. The book itself is well bound,

Justice for Germany
Fighting the Greatest Criminals of
All the Ages
We must remember lhat wc arc
fighting the great malefactor, the
greatest of all time. It is madness,
it Is surrender, it is suicide to discuss
peace terms with Germany until Germany has been put in a position
where, when Iter statesmen talk of
justice, thry will employ thc -word
with lhc connotations that arc in the
president's mind, in the minds of all
the oilier allies. Chancellor von
llertliug declines to submit his case
to the court of the entire world. "Wc
must, .is things stand today, in the
name of the Gorman empire and lier
allies, decline this court as prejudiced." Ho. his master, and tltc German empire stand today at thc liar

After Four Years of It He Does Not
Think War Is Beautiful
"The thought of war was always
popular among Germans, and it became obvious during thc two or
three years which preceded thc present conflict that our people had made
up their miiub that it was inevitable.
"I.i Januai \ 1913, Otto von Gott-
bcrg, writing in thc Jung Dcutsch-
landrPost, declared 'War is the most
exalted and the saintlicst iorm of
human action.    War is beautiful!'
"Dr. William luichs, writing in the
Berlin Post, in January, 1912, declared 'Peace' is not only shame, it is
thc end, the finish, of German greatness.' And in December, 1912, Dr.
Schniidt-Gabichenfcls, editor of" the
Aiithropologischc Zcitschriftcn, said
in that periodical, 'War is the only
thing that c-n preserve our Kultur.
War is part of God's awn world-
system. It is indispensable for thc
creation and for thc maintenance of
all that is good, beautiful, great and
"Then again thc Taglisclic Rundschau in November, 1912, said, 'If
war did not exist, a real friend of"
mankind would invent it. We Germans should consider war as a healer, as the doctor who not only cures
all ailments of thc soul, but those of
the body also. Without it life would
hc absolutely impossible'
"Well, wc havc had war for nearly
four years. Have any of these theories proved correct? Physically the
war has caused the death of millions
of men, and brought to the German
people nothing but misery, privations and sickness. Psychologically it
has wrought the decay of our morality and the deterioration-of our family life.
"Instead of being a factor in our
kullural life, war has produced nothing and has destroyed much, while
diverting the attention of our people
from every thought that is not connected directly with llic daily struggle to find bread.
"And yet Otto vou Goltbcrg declared in 1913 that 'war is beautiful!' "

It is a hopeless task lo try to restore your health while your blood is

to thc various organs and muscles;
it takes also any medication lhat is

If lhe kidneys arc not doing their

"i do not know of anything that
will help the flow of milk in the
winter so much as to have something
to lake the chill oil" the water and
to have thc cows in comfortable
quarters where, they can drink whenever they want to. Cows like to be
able to drink occasionally and tlicy
will not go out iu thc cold to drink
until they arc driven to it. I do
not know of anything that would
help out so much the production of
milk as guarding lhal little point
about the kind of water thc cows
have and where thev havc to go for
In these days of such high-priced

_ Capt. Herbert Harlwcll of Springfield, Mass., and Lieut. Walter
France, of Oakland Citj', Ind., have
been decorated with thc French war
cross by the French general co��>
irmnding thc Chcmin dct, Dames sector, for capturing--the tltrgc members

which had taken part in an air raid.,
over Paris about a fortnight ago.
Capt. Wolf, a Prussian, and the
pilot of thc German machine, and
Licnt. Kammcrer, the bomb dropper,
were captured by Lieut. France,
while thc mechanician of the airplane, Sergt. Fisher, waa captured
by Capt. Hartwcll.
"Wc were stationed near Clamccy
when wc heard thai raiders were on
their way toward Paris, and later \ye
heard them returning towards their
own lines," writes Lieitt. France. "I
could tell by the sound that tlicir
motor was falling and soon saw thc
German machine descending.
"Thc captain and I ��a.n toward tha
Germans as their machine struck the
earth. It landed against a shell crater, and thc men were catapulted
from thc airplane. Thcy then set fire
to it.
"Thc Prussian captain was chased
into an old, disused trench., where lis
was taken prisoner. Then the German lieutenant was pursued, but
two idiots from an automatic pistol
soon halted him. "Wc lock onr captives to our quarters, where wc gaves
first aid to the captain, whose back
was burned, and thc sergeant whose
back was injured.
"Thc liculena-.it,  who was    unhurt,
spoke English r.nlil thc  captain ordered him tf) keep silent. Thc German
captain offered mc his iron cross, but

Cii.\ki.ks F. Cm.dwki.i. of Kaslo,
ib 0110 of the most optimistic, energetic and enterprising men connected vith mining and morals in
the grea^ and glorious west. He
was horn under the folds of "Old
Glory*' and during the mud period
of his earthly career spent many
days amid the wild scenes of the
Coeur d'Alenes in Idaho. He was
never a quitter, and usually stayed
with everything unto the finish.
At Mullan one time, he sat iuto a
poker game in Jack Lucy's saloon,
and in 3G hours was broke. He
sent to a friend up at the mines
for 8-30 and lost it. He sent time
and again until his friend quit his
job and came-down hill to borrow
money in order to keep Charley in
the game. About this time Jack
Lucy took Caldwell to one side,
mi (I paid, "Charley, you're the
best poker player west of the Missouri river, but you can't beat this
vame. These fellows are cold
'.>cking you." Sitting in the
:-.'ne again, Charley laid his six-
������-.ooter on the table, exclaiming,
' ���'',. will shoot the first guy. full of
_.oles that colddecks me!" In
about two hours he had all the
money, and the enemy were so
badly routed that Jack Lucy had
to >pray them with whiskey to
brace up their shattered morale.
Jn those bold bad days Charley
v.ivs ������- hard poker player, a desperado., and a dealer in Montana
sheep-dip, Arizona chlorides and
ancient Bourbon. But, eventually,
tlie Lord waved a wand of good
over this strong, impetuous man,
and he began to follow the trail
that Jesus blazed in the early days.
.Thro-tying away the ileshpots,. and
"breaking all his clay images Charley imbibed the divine essence that
uplifts the soul, and brings a peace
that passet-h all understanding.
Becoming an evangelist in the
church.of his choice he has gone
over the top after the devil for
many years. He has stood pat
Bgaius Old Nick every time, and
made him fall further, back into
the darkened trenches of hell, vice,,
misery and suffering. While chasing the Evil One, Charley has at
the same time been diligent in business, and has done all in his power
to advance the interests of his community in the material things that
provide work, comfort and prosperity to his fellow-man. As a
champion for the mining''.'industry
he ha? done noble . work, ai)d,al��
ways aims to have nothing but a
square deal alike for mines,
smelters and railroads. Some" do
not like Charley thinking that he
is too -much' of a spotlight herb, but
he does things just the same, and
somebody always throws stones at
the man who, falling out of line,
j'luips on. an eminence and points
the way to better conditions. At
tlie same time the. world loves a
brave man who has the courage of
his convictions, even if he has
some faults left. If he had none
left Charley would just evaporate,
. and he "folded into the heavenly
formation without the formality of
cremation, or a slow funeral.

Hits Them Hard
L. J. Wilde is a banker by profession, and mayor of San Diego,
California. He is a booster by
nature, and they call him "Smokestacks," because his absorbing passion is to fill that beautiful southern city of flowers, fossils, sun?
shine, hot tamales . and astral
spirits, with factories and industries of all kinds. He has to contend with a bunch pf city fathers
that ioughlock his ideas of progress with every conceivable kind
of protest and foolish remarks. In
a recent letter to the press, Wilde
hands this crowd of hydrocephalus
municipal slackers the following
dose of literary acid:
'^Three things there  are eternal
in their worth ���
Loap, -which-, out reaches  to the
Work, which   i.s glad  iu what it
does, and brings,
And   Faith,   which  soars  upon
unwearied wings."
Los Angeles is.full of youth vision; imagination, optimism, confidence, boosters and brains.
San Diego is full of old tightwads, pessimists, vacillating, visionary dreamers, distrust, jea!ouey,
meddling old hens, mustard Beed
politicians, office-seeking bellyach-
ers, hypocrites, pacifists, high taxes
and knoekers. And this beautiful
spot and this wonderful harbor-
that might have been, is not, because these facts make traitors of
you all, and you have lost many-
industries you might have gained
by fearing to attempt.   IV
