John Potter, the winner of several fortunes, for the paBfe nine
years an inmate of the Provincial
Home in this city, received word
the first of the week that his father
had died at his old home in California, leaving something like $1,-
500,000 and that the will will be
probated on tbe 19th of this month.
Mr. Potter made arrangements to
be in Los Angeles at that date and
left last evening for that city. He
told Supt. McLean that his father
and himself had been at outs for
some little time and he did not
know what the result would be.
Before leaving he said that he enjoyed the last nine years better
than any period of his life. He
came to the home from Greenwood.
Daring the big boom in Vancouver, he had cleared up 880,000,
which he later lost in various
speculations. He joined his father
and went on a ranch, but they had
differences, and he left. The people will remember him as a neatly
dressed man who was on the streets
quite a little and was very deaf.���

Save The Gasoline
The Allies need gasoline. Waste
none of it on Sunday motoring for
pleasure. He who uses it for this
purpose stints those who are fighting our battles. It is the duty of
all motor car owners to comply
with the Fuel ���Controller's request
to save "gas."
The safety of the State being the
supreme law, personal enjoyment
must give place to national necessity during war time. To save
gasoline is to save money. It will
also ensure a more adequate supply of "gas" for the needs of our
wi?r-machine, which must lack no
essential. To comply with the
Fuel Controller's request will save
$150,000 on a single Sunday. In
gasoline it will also save hundreds
of thousands of gallons. A word
to fehe wise motor car owner is
sufficient. :

There is little limit; upon anything in Greenwood. The autos

Meat Industry
The  Light  Is  Now  to    Be    Turned
On
'lhe president's proclamation requiring owne.-s oi stockyards ancl
Jive stock commission men to take
out licenses under direction of the
secretary of agriculture is presumably a step toward compelling full
publicity iii the whole meat industry.
To take over thc industry for government management would involve j
endk-ss complications and difficulties j
without giving more play to the regulative forces of publicity than the
license system now adopted. And
publicity is the needful thing. Neither speculation nor manipulation of
tlie_ markets nor extortion or profiteering can possibly thrive in the
country's meat supply except in the
dark. The light ia now to be turned

No season ot the year is so dangerous to the life of little ones rs is thc
summer. The excessive heat throws
tho little stomach out of order so
Quickly that unless prompt aid is at
hand, the baby may be beyond all
Jiuuian help before the mother realizes he is ill. Summer is thc season
when diarrhoea, cholera infinitum,
<lyscntry and colic lire most prevalent. Any of these troubles may prove
deadly if not promptly treated. During the summer the mother's best

No Negotiations

Germany   Has  Made    Mutual   Confidence  Impossible
Kuchlmann understands cor-
why peace negotiations have
and, until victory crowns the
cause, must fail. There can be
no negotiations without mutual confidence. And (iennany has made such
mutual   confidence   impossible,
flow can Kiigland believe in the
chivalrv of the nation that murdered
l-:<lilh   Cavell?
How can Belgium believe iu the
chivalry of thc men who shot civilian
men, women and children as they
marched  toward  the  _Meu.se?
How can France believe in tiie
chivalry of the men who ground the
very bricks of French homes to powder, and cut down the very fruit
trees, that France might in the future find it an agony- to recuperate?
Ho iv can Italy believe in tho chivalry of the bombers of Venice?
How can America believe in the
chivalry, of the. men who massacred
tho defenceless passengers of the
Lusitania?
How can mankind believe in the
chivalry of the  Hun?
And Kuhlmann says that an exchange of ideas, is impossible so. long
as every peace overture is regarded
as a peace offensive. Does he wonder? He need not. He cannot have
forgotten Brest-Litovsk. He cannot
believe that wo have forgotten. The
Russians believed ' that a German'
peace overture was a. real offer of
peace, .and : thcy arc now suffering

This French Ace i�� Nerveless
Great Flier  Lacks Even   the   Usual
Superstition About Planes
Rene Fonck, thc young ace i
aces who recently Avon his forty-
ninth officially recorded victory, may
best be described as thc man with
perfect nerve, but no trace of nerves.
Those who have had tho opportunity
to study him closely believe this superb poise is the secret of his success.
To show how free he is from foibles:
Most famous aviators become attached to a favorite machine. When
thcy have won a few victories in it
they regard it witli affection, even
superstition;  it  is  lucky.
By contrast, Fonck has a habit of
giving his machine to any youngster
who lias just won his pilot's commission and who has caught the
great ace's  fancy.
"Try this one, lad," he will say.
"It seems to be all right," and thus
passes title to a plane in which he
has   downed   two   or   three   Germans.
Then he takes the next machine
sent to thc camp from the factory.
Fonck is of medium height and
weight and has the walk and carriage of a skilful boxer. Men of
scientific bent say his reflexes arc
perfect���incredibly swift and accurate. Besides this he has extraordinary vision, it has happened more
than once when he has led a squadron that hc has signalled to the other pilots the approach of a German
plane, its exact location, tlie angle
from which it should be attacked and
its speed, all this before any of thc
others had seen it at all.
It need hardly bc added that hc is
a fanatic ou thc subject. When he
talks it is of nothing but motors,
now models of planes, aerial tactics
and machine guns. But more often
he sits through dinner with his
friends  without uttering a syllable.
Speaking of tactics, he has none, or
at least no set method. _ He improvises as he goes along, Like the other fliers, Commandant Brocard, he
ie full of ingenious surprises. Incidentally, Brocard believed in him
froin the first. A year ago Georges
Prade, a journalist of note, Avas
talking to the piaster, expressing his
fears for the future of the combat
squadrpns with Dorme, Navarre,
Rochefort, Lenoir gone, and Guynemer an4 Nungesser fighting on by
sheer will power and determination
despite wounds which would havc
crippled the ordinary man. Brocard
replied simply:
But we have Fonck. Do you know
Fonck?    He is unique,"
But he could not remain long in
obscurity���not a young man who
kept putting down plane after plane
(his score iiow is over sixty, eleven
having fallen out of sight of official
observers) and always wlthoiu a
gcratch to himself or his machine.
For fonck never has been -wounded.
Many of his -victories were Avon before the German adversary had a
chance to fire a shot, Incidentally
he is said to know more about German aviation than any other man
among thc allies.
Brocard taught him to fly anything and everything, including the

The widespread suspicion: of aliens
in Great Britain,-which recently forced the government, to announce a
more drastic policy, of dealing Avith
them, is periodically renewed by re?
' velations which tend to support the
theory-of the extremists that no German can be trusted. Take the Jonas-
Veriiori case of espionage, now engaging the attention of the English
rourts. Sir Joseph Jonas, bom in
.Germany, had lived for most of the
73 years of his life in England Avhcre
lie had attained Av'ealth and distinction as a manufacturer "of cutlery at
Sheffield; correspondence, captured
as the result of a raid, shows that,

C. P.   R.  Engine  From  Moose  Jsav |
Doing Great Work at Amiens      [
Roland Hill writes from France as j
follows: i
From Moose Jaw to Amiens is a
far cry, yet during the German offensive there Avas an old Canadian
Pacific. engine Avhich had done its
duty in both places. It is still running along these new lines in France
and is entitled to a locomotive
Avoundcd stripe, for it was a casualty
during the recent heaA'y fighting.
Manned by a Canadian creAV, this
mogul from the prairies did consist-
ly good work until a fragment of a
shell laid it out. Noav it has been
through the casualty clearing shop
for  engines  and  is running  steadily.
Thc Canadian railway operating
companies did their oavii little share
in frustrating the Hun attack. One
Canadian engine Avas attached to a
long ammunition train Avhich was
caught when the enemy shelled and
bombed a narrow tunnel through
Avhich many trains had to pass at
that time. The crew stayed Avith the
train and Avhcn morning and peace
dawned found tAvo dead engines and
an empty train ahead of them on a
track that even a construction train
Avould not dare. These Canadians
pushed the engines ahead of them
and into a much bombed siding, then
ran their own train along a sky line,
Avhich the Huns had observation^ on,
and into their appointed dump in a
little sheltered valley.
Some of the raihvay operating
crews worked thirty-six hours at a
stretch during the crisis and took
tremendous chances but always came
through with luck. One engine after
two solid days' Avork hauled fifty
trucks and four dead engines back to
safety over a congested track.

A True Canadian
Canada Has Every Reason    to    Be
Proud of Dr. Beland
A notable place among the Canadian heroes of the war is filled by
Hon. Dr. Belaud. During thc first
mouths of the conflict and Avhcn Belgium was overrun by thc Huns he
ministered faithfully to the needs of
the wounded. He could have retreated with the Belgians, but did
not do so. He preferred to stay by
his patients, and the result Avas to
be taken prisoner by the Germans.
He Avas removed to Berlin and for
three long years Avas in a prison.
While, there he was not idle, but assisted the regular physician in thc
treatment of other prisoners, mostly
Russian Poles. Except at long intervals Dr. Beland was not alloAved outside the prison Avails. Even was he
not permitted to sec his Avife during
her illness and death. Despite all Dr.
Beland retained his nobleness of
disposition. Canada has.every reason to feel proud over such a hero.
He is certain to receive a warm welcome on his return and to retain the
place of respect in the hearts of his
fclloAV-citizens of all denominations

No Room for Loafers
The Secret of Advertising =
A Warning to the  Advertiser   Who
Neglects the Dull Season in
Summer
Advertisingl Bradstreet's statement that 84 per cent, of all failures
are among non-advertisers is significant. Intelligent advertising has become an essential in every modern
industry, but Avhat shall thc advertiser do in the face of the Avar situation Avhen he finds it difficult to get
goods to fill his orders? First of all,
it should be remembered that the
foundation purpose of judicious advertising is to fix indelibly the trademark in the public's mind. A let-up
in the campaign must be fatal to any
product. So, Ave find Mr. George H.
Chads, vice-president of the American Rolling Mills Company, declaring the company's purpose to continue its advertising, although for
two and a half ycars it had been unable to supply the demand for its
product. "We are building," said he,
"a permanent business edifice, and
some day Ave Avould have to spend
millions of dollars buying back the
business and good-will of our clients
if they are forsaken in this emergency." Unless advertising is kept
up Avithout a break the advertiser
loses the results of thc initial effort.
Here is a Avarning to the advertiser
Avho neglects the dull season in summer. When advertisements are fewest is the very time Avhen a message
to thc public will get the most attention. It is good "psychology" to
push the advertisement of a winter
product in summer and of a summer
product in Avinter.���From Leslie's.

American,
Enemy Has Been Thrown Back on a
Policy of Evasion
Drawing to its conclusion his
article on "The North Sea and Beyond," in Tiie Fortnightly Review,
Archibald Hu'rd-writes:
"Before the peace Avas broken in
the summer of 1914, . the majority
of.the people of these islands Avere
impressed by the double peril of invasion and starvation, through the influence exerted by an enemy's surface ships, How do Ave stand in those
respects? The Germqm men-of-war,
Avhich were thought to menace our
island security, dare not stir beyond
the gun and mine-protected Avet triangle.of Heligoland. The.'enemy, has
been thrown back, .on a policy df
evasion,., employing the submarine
and the. mine, and making 'tip-and-
run' excursions. Those are consider^
ations Avhich may, perhaps Avith advantage, be. borne, in mind at a moment when,: owing to the collapse of
Russia, the naval situation has undergone.a change   calculated  to    test
j Britisii .ncryc.   ..' 	
i. "Convoy incidents or losses due
to submarine action niay occur more
frequently. The officers of the
board of admiralty may be changed,
but Avliatcvcr the... variations made
from time to tinie in the personal
equation,*-ashore or afloat, naval war
.must be fought in accordance Avith
immemorial principles, and those
principles persist, however impatient
public opinion may be. The sea drama is always slow, iis thc twenty
years of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic '.\:irs remind us, and" always
will he slow, because thc weaker enemy possesses, as hc has always, possessed-, the facility of hiding in defended ports, with the initiative at
his command, in the meantime resorting to evasive operations, such
as raids r.nd attacks on commerce.
"As  Admiral  Mahan  has  declared:
'The   control   of   the     sea, . however
real, does not imply that an enemy's
single . ships .-of small squadrons can-
liiot-steal  out of     port,  cannot  cross
[more    or less    frequented tracts    of
| ocean, make  harassing descents    up-
I on    unprotected    points    of    a   long
'coastline,    enter    blockaded  harbors.
j On   thc  contrary,   history  has   showii
I that   such  evasions  arc  alwajs     pos-
, si'de. to some extent, to the  weaker
party,   It am.ver   great   thc   inequality
'of naval strength.'"

Both    in    Canada    and    the United
States the Law Has Set Its
Face Against Them
Thc loafers and merely nominal
workers of the North American continent havc fallen upon evil Avays.
Both in Canada and the United
States, the laAV has nOAV set its face
severely against them. On July 1st
the United States federal order, as
draAvn up by Provost Marshal Enoch
CroAvdcr, went into effect. All men
of draft age, that is, bctAveen thc
ages of eighteen and fifty have noAV
to be engaged in some productive
employment or get into the army.
This federal order is being re-enforced by anti-loafing laws, enacted by
the state legislatures.
Thc provost marshal has defined
productive and non-productive occupations and there is no escape for
those Avho cannot be classed among
the productive Avorkers if they are
of draft age. Non-productive occupations in the United States are defined as folloAvs:
First, persons engaged in the serving of food and drink or either in
public places, including hotels and
social clubs.
Second, passenger elevator operators, attendants and footmen, carriage openers and other attendants in
clubs, hotels, stores, opera houses,
office,buildings and bath houses.
Third, persons, including ushers
and other attendants engaged and-
occupied in connection with games,
sports and amusements, except actual performers in legitimate concert operas, and theatrical performers. .
Fourth, persons employed in domestic service.
Fifth, sales clerks and other
clerks employed in stores and other
mercantile establishments.
If a man of draft age legistcred in
due course and Avaiting his selection
for the_ draft be not employed in
productive occupation, or if he; be
idle partially or completely, he must
hold himself on immediate call for
the army. The regulation is applicable to idle registrants, to gamblers
of all descriptions and employees of
race tracks and bucket shops, to
fortune tellers, clairvoyants, palmists and people of such vocations. If
the board of appeal so judge, idlers
may have their deferred classification AvithdraAvn and their names will
be reported to the adjutant general of
the. state for military service. The
only excuses for idleness and nonproductive employment on the part
of a man of military age are set
down as sickness, reasonable vacation, lack of reasonable opportunity
for employment, temporary absence
froni regular employment, not to exceed one Avcck, unless such are habitual and frequent or domestic circumstances involving hardship to dependents if a change of employment
Avcrc ordered, or .where such...change
Avould necessitate night work on the
part of women under unsuitable conditions.
In the state of -, New Yprk,\. the
sheriffs, state police, district attorneys, magistrates, other officers of
the jaw,, and the. .state industrial,
commission, tinder the. state anti-
loafing legislation, arc combined to
enforce the federal order and assign
men A,\-licrc necessary to jobs of a
productive character. It is .estimated that 1,000,000 will ."change'; their
employment as the result of this order of General Enoch Crowder,. Jt is
pointed'out, however, tliat no man
should give nip his present employment, even th.oiiRli of the non-productive class, until lie has cither procured Avork at an essential industry
or such Avork has been'procured .for
him, as it i.s recognized that a man
employed at non-tsscntial work . is
better  than  a  man  not employed at
all. ..   ���     .    ���
Canada's anti-loafing law has been
in operation since early in April and
every male person OArer sixteen and
under sixty years of age, unless a
bona fide -student, or physically unfit, or reasonably unable to find employment, jniM be engaged in some
useful   occupation.

Maybe Good Luck
Follows This Sign
Letter "B" on Oat Blades In Scar-
boro' and Markham Townships
Throughout Scarboro' and Mark-
ham tOAvnship in Ontario, on every
oat blade there is embossed the letter "B." Many are the conjectures
as to Avhat this stands for and one of
the most popular beliefs is that this
is the first letter of Britain, for
Avhom the oats are being grown to
Avin the war.
_ Some people evidence a superstitious feeling and are expecting great
good luck from this sign. It is stated that only once before, and that in
1901, lias the phenomenon been observed in this locality and that time
it was taken to mean Boers. The
same ycar Scarboro' had one of the

LIFT YOUR CORNS
OFF WITH FINGERS
How  to  loosen  a tender corn
or callus so it lifts out
without pain
Let folks step on your feet hereafter; wear shoes a size smaller if
you like, for corns will never again
send electric sparks of pain through
you, according to this Cincinnati
authority.
He says that a few drops of a
drug called frcezone, applied directly
upon a tender, aching corn, instantly
relieves soreness, and soon the entire corn, root and all, lifts right
out.
This drug dries at once and simply
shrivels u$> the corn or callus without even irritating the surrounding
tissue.
A small bottle of freezone obtained
at any drug store will cost very little
but will positively remove every
hard or soft corn of callus from one's
feet.
If your druggist hasn't stocked
this new drug yet, tell him to get a
small bottle of freezone for you from
his wholesale drug house.

Tight Bottom Rack
Tho Open Bottom Rack is a Means
of Losing Considerable Grain
A western farmer avIio used a
tight rack and the wheat and chaff
was sacked up on Saturday night
(that which had collected during the
day) and put through a fanning mill
and weighed, found there were 244
pounds of clean wheat or four bushels and four pounds. Does it pay?
That would mean 2,440 pounds per
day to a threshing crew of ten-bundle teams.
It will mean not only a saving to
pockets, but the allies Avant the
grain. Let us all do our bit and then
some.
Unquestionably the open Bottom
rack is a means of losing considerable grain, as this loss is usually
sustained Avithout any knowledge of
the amount involved. If 244 pounds
of grain can be saved in one day by
using a rack having a tight bottom
this would mean an enormous saving
in harvesting the cereal crop from
an average section of land.
The ease with Avhich corns and
warts can be removed by HolloAvay's
Corn Cure is its strongest recommendation.    It seldom fails.
Crop Prospects Good
Railway   Official's   Conclusion    Foi
lowing Western Tour
"After an extended tour through
the Avest, both over the C.P.R. and
other lines, during which I looked
carefully into crop prospects, 1 think
it is safe to conclude that, with the
increased acreage under cultivation
Western Canada this year Avill produce at least as many bushels of
grain as last year, provided, of
course, that conditions continue as
favorable as they are at present."
This was the statement made on
July 15th by Mr. C. E. McPherson,.
assistant passenger traffic manager
of the C.P.R. at Winnipeg, vvhile in
Montreal on a business trip.
Mr. McPherson said that in some
parts of Alberta and SaskatcheAvan
drought and winds had cut into the
possiblities of the harvest^ very
seriously, while in larger districts
recent rains had helped the groAving
grain along Avonderfully, so that
Avhere a few weeks ago there was
little in sight it noAV seemed likely
there would be at least fair crops.
In Manitoba, which province had
during recent years fallen behind h\
Avheat production, Mr. McPherson
said the prospects Avere particularly
good, Avith a largely increased area
of wheat acreage, and every prospect
of abundant yields.
So far as passenger business Avas
concerned, Mr. McPherson said that
the roads in the west had never done
better than during the present year.
As to American tourist business, particularly toward the far west, Mr.
McPherson said it was too early to
make "any predictions, but the prospects pointed to at least as good a
season as last year, while the number of visitors to the Rocky Mountain resorts Avas Avell up tb the average.
Mr. McPherson will return to
Winnipeg in a feAV days.

Focussing: Our Vision Right
This Is a War for the Empty and
Unpopulated Areas
There is one false assumption
which almost seems to be generally
taken for granted. We continue to
keep our eyes fixed to the great centres of population and measure the
enemy's success or failure by what
he has done there. It is the other
Avay round. This is a war for the
empty and unpopulated areas, where
there arc great resources and few
people to use them or defend them.
In this sense the access to the seas
and the German colonies are more
than a counterpose for all that the
Germans have Won. As. long as they
are engaged itl an eternal struggle
for bread Avith those who grow it
and need if for themselves Ave" must
reckon on just such a course of
events as, under similar conditions,
marked our Avars with Napoleon���
namely, that in the long run everything that lives, eats, and can fight is
driven to make common cause
against the aggressor. It is the
empty spaces that count most; iand
those miles of Siberia or Central
Asia, which some think of as tedious
distances to be traversed before one
can arrive at any place of decision,
are, on the contrary, themselves the
main places of decision. It is vital
that the Germans should not reach
these areas. They can do so, for
there is little to prevent their passage. They cannot do so with security until they have established a
mastery in the more populous districts on their road. That is what we
can help to prevent.���London Daily

Comfort For the Horse
Make the Horse Worth More as   a
Source of. Farm Power
'. A piece of burlap or a gunny sack
ripped open and tied over the harness makes a cheap fly-blanket --that
Avill add 100 per cent, to the horse's
comfort Avhcn. flies get bad.
The only way the. horse has to
keep the ilies off is Avith its tail and
nose. The horse cannot reach its
back witli- cither tail or nose . Avhcn
harnessed and hitched, so give it a
square dcaL by covering its back,
and rump and sides, too.
This need* not keep anyone from
indulging in fancy fly nets, expensive leather ones or carefully fitted
.ind hemmed'ones'. But lor the practical farmer there is nothing more
sensible for a fly net for horses than
ii burlap blanket, tied oyer the harness Avith short tAvinc strings.
The blanket can be replaced.a time
or two during the 'summer .arid as the
edges fray out. trim them Avith shears.
Such a blanket on ihe body and the
liberal use of "fly knocker" applied
avil'h an inexpensive hand sprayer, to
the; horse's belly and legs'will make
the-horse worth more as a source of
farm poAvcr.
You can make a good fly knocker
out of a quurl of pine t.ir, a pint of
crude carbolic arid, and-two and one-
half Rations of kerosene mixed together.

Glad To Come In
He Was Not One of tho "Fight to
the end" Kind!
Thc code of tho German officers is,
never to surrender; but they do not
by any means live up to it, says a
correspondent in France. In a recent
raid a sergeant I knoAV made a prisoner of a German captain Avho, as
they walked to thc rear, cursed his I
luck in fluent French, saying that j
he Avas caught unawares; that an
officer never surrendered, but fought
to the end.
"Stop here, my captain, and let us
consider this." said the sergeant seriously. "There are several articles
of your equipment to Avhich my fancy
runs. That watch, for example,
those leather puttees, and that fat
purse I saAV you change to your hip
pocket. Perhaps I can oblige you
and gratify my Avhim. Suppose you
were suddenly to run���a quick shot
would save your honor, and mc of
the trouble of escorting you to tho
rear. And I am an excellent shot, I
assure you."
But the German was not interested.
He Avas not one of the "fight to the

French Are Splendid People
Waiting in the Hope That the Allies
Will Push the Invaders Back
Beyond the Rhine
Even in the early days, Avhen the
Hun had barely crossed the frontier,
it Avas difficult to get the French
peasant to leave the district near his
blackened, smouldering home.
At that time they had no idea of
Avhat German occupation meant, and
many of the menfolk left their avo-
men and children Avith friends AA-ho
believed that the Flun Avould never
injure the helpless.
Thcy knoAV better noAV, and yet
you Avill find them buzzing like so
many bees just behind thc neAV lines,
Avaiting in the hope that the allies
will push the invaders back beyond
the Rhine. They have never given
up hope in all the Avcary years of
AA'aiting.
Within the sound of the guns you
will find land being cultivated, crops
being tended, herds being Avatered.
The laAvns of ruined houses are being planted Avith vegetables, barns
are being re-roofed, barbed wire is
being lifted in order that the land
can be reclaimed for feeding the
population. Civilian life keeps surging up against the black line of Avar
like a fresh-water wave against the
dark ooze of a peat bog.
Thcy arc prepared to take hazards,
and they take them. Old men and
women wander up and down behind
the line seeking information of their
friends avIioiu thcy have not seen for
nearly four years; mothers ask about
their children, husbands about their
wives. They haunt the high roads
in the hope of meeting someone Avho
has come from the district of their
A'iolated homestead. They hang
around some of the railroad stations,
thcy try to get letters through into
the invaded district, they wander
aimlessly", almost despairingly. Their
mental anguish is greater than that
of those Avhose friends have been
killed.
One French soldier I knew used
to get Avord of his wife and child
only by Avriting a letter to a friend
in a village near the. Holland, frontier by whom it was sent���no one
knew Iioav���to Brussels, then again
into German}', Avhithcr the Avoman
had gone. A reply came back by
the same .route, and each journey
took six months. But those Avho are
unable to get letters through���and
thcy are multitude���must just Avait
for the day Avhen the French, British
and Americans strike hard enough
and make thc Huns retreat. In that
day the pathetic host of civilians, aged and infirm, sick Avith Avaiting, will
follow hard on the heels of the
army. For the present they are trying to pick up the threads of life in
districts Avhcre death is supreme;

War By-Products
By Sir Joseph Compton-Rickett, M.
P., in London Daily Mail
It is .one of the penalties of Avar
that thought, ingenuity, and Avcalth
are directed into unproductive channels. But it A\-as the final A'ictory
over Napoleon Avhich opened the
road .to the scientific discoveries of
the nineteenth century, and civilization rejoicing in peace broke into a
iicav stride.
Already in this Avar something has
been gained. We have accomplished
the mastery of the air and in future
Avill range freely from continent to
continent. Our experiments in the
submarine were fitful, almost futile,
until necessity imposed rapid depcl-
opment. This novel method of transit Avill probably be adapted to the
merchant service as a Counter to naval attack. Fresh victories for surgery, the more complete mastery of
disease, have been snatched from the
battlefield.
In our social organzation there
have been failures, extravagances
AA'ith considerable success to be carried to our credit. Recoiling from
Avar, passionately desiring to save
the coming generations from our
own bitter experience, Ave are noAV
seeking a common association of
interests, a court of appeal to Avhich
disputes can bc taken, decided, and
enforced���-a league of nations. This
is the greatest by-product and the
most difficult to secure. Unless this
league is a military alliance all the
present belligerents must be ultimately included. That implies to
each belligerent after an adjustment
of interests, there Avill be left sufficient scope for healthy development.
For if our late adversaries do not
surrender the rope of reinstatement
intrigue will begin Avithin the league
itself, and the very federation may
grow into a source of ^danger.
That unanimity of purpose Avhich
is so. necessary to peace Avould be
difficult to secure if there Avere members of the league strong enough to
enforce methods distasteful to a
peaceful, minority. Paradise would
indeed degenerate into a zoological
garden without competent keepers.
For if a Avar in the future unhappily
recurs, preparations for that war
Avill be sudden and unexpected,
Neither dreadnoughts by sea . nor
mobilization of huge masses of
trained men by land will be necessary at the outset. A.spdden attack
by aircraft Avould be quietly prepared. Man for man the crews -of .the
flying squadrons can do infinitely
more harm than infantry or caA'-alry
| units. A few. submarines stealthily
j directed to the chief shipping route
1 of a maritime-'-'country will soon
Avork 'havoc.'-
Preparations for both methods of
warfare'.'are-' difficult to detect beforehand, particularly if ��� each play
a part in commercial life. It is important to remember that these new
forms of Avarfare are economical���
within the reach of small nations.

Milner's Warning: to Britain
We Have to  Fight as    We    Never
Fought Before, Says Britain's
War Secretary
Lord Llilner, British secretary for
Avar, at the annual meeting of the
Y.M.C.A., said it was an uplifting
thought that in this, the firecest trial
our country has ever passed through,
Ave are a more united nation than
ever.
"The war lords of Germany have
made the issue perfectly clear. Their
ideal of the future of mankind is a
Central European block of irresistible strength supported by giant' industries drawing their raw material
from all the rest of the Avorld on
Germany's OAvn terms���a world of
servile states Avorking for the profit
of a great paramount  empire.
"It is as certain as'anything can
be that that object is unattainable.
It -will fail as every attempt to subjugate the Avorld by a single soul has
failed, from the time of the Roman
empire. But every fresh German success means the further prolongation
of the Avar. We are today at the climax of Germany's poAver. Therefore Ave have to fight as we never
fought before, as our great, noble
French allies are fighting with every
ounce of their strength, until the
great reserves Avhich the cause _ of
freedom still possess may have time
to be fully mobilized.
"If I could tell you of the numbers
���I must not tell you���which aa;c
havo put into the field since this
great battle began, Avhich we are
noAv putting in, and Avhich we shall
put in immediately���you Avould be
astonished. But no effort can be
great enough AA-here everything wc
hold dear is at stake."
How feAv feel Avell this time of the
year? The AA-hole' system needs
housecleaning; the blood is impure;
it needs enriching. Nothing will do
the work, more effectively than Dr.
Hamilton's Pills. Take them at night

Submarine Warfare
Fairly Accurate Knowledge of How
Their Work of Destruction
Progresses
The head of thc German navy denies the claim of the allies' naval
authorities that German submarines
are being destroyed faster than they
are being built. On the contrary,
says the German, their submarines
are a greater menace to the allies
than heretofore. All things considered, the Germans are iu the better
position to knoAV about these matters.
The allies have a fairly accurate
knowledge of how their Avork of destruction progresses, but in all cases
of encounter they cannot be positive
as to thc outcome.
As regards the building by Germany, they have some information
gathered by means knoAvn only to
themselves; Avhereas the Germans
know Avhcn their submarines do not
come back, and they knoAV when they
launch a hcav one. But this is also
certain���thcy canot be expected to
tell the Avorld Iioav they are faring in
this matter of piracy; also that the
truth is not in them. They arc under
no obligation to tell the truth, and
even if they Avere, all the Avorld
knows they would not tell it, ' if it
were against their interest to do so.
A Mild Pill for Delicate Women.���
The most delicate Avoman can undergo a course of Parmelee's Vegetable Pills without fear of unpleasant
consequences. Their action, while
wholly effective, is mild and agreeable. No violent pains or purgings
folIoAV their use, as thousands of" women who have used them can testify.
They are, therefore, strongly recommended to women, who are more
prone to disorders of the digestive
organs than men.
Built Without Nails
In Alberta, Canada, there is a vil-,
lage whose houses have been constructed AA-ithout nails. The houses
Avere built by Ruthenian immigrants.
The buildings are of the typical Ruthenian style���-long, pitch-roofed,
thatched and Avide in the caAres. Even

Over Twelve Million
Lives Lost Already
Terrific    Destruction     of    Europe's
People  Caused by the War
The Avar has caused the belligerent countries of Europe the loss of
not less than 12,500,000 potential lives
because of the decrease in the number of births resulting from the Avar,
says Sir Bernard Mallet, registrar-
general of Great Britain. This country, he asserts, has lost in these potential lives 650,000 children. He believes that other belligerent countries
have suffered in this respect more
than has Great Britain.
Sir Bernard estimated that every
day of the Avar means a loss of 7,000
potential lives of children to the
United Kingdom, France, Italy and
the Central Powers. Dealing with
the decline in the birth rate here, he
said the births registered in England and Wales in 1913 numbered
881,800. In 1915 thcy fell to 814,614;
in 1916 there was a further fall to
780,520, and in 1917 to 668,346, a decline of 24 per cent, compared with
1913.
Catarrhal Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications as tlicy canaot reach
the diseased portion ol tho ear. There is
only one way to cure catarrhal deainess, and
that is by a constitutional remedy. Catarrhal
Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition
of the mucous lining ol the Eustachian Tube.
When this tube is inflamed you havo a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed, Deafness is tne result.
Unless the inflammation can be reduced nud
this tube restored to its -normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever. Many
cases of deafness are caused hy catarrh,
which is an inflamed condition of the mucous
surfaces. Hall's Catarrh Cure acts through
the blood on.the mucous surfaces ol the system.

The Automatic Soldier
Patriotism Conditional
More Than Ninety Per Cent, of the
World's Work Is Done Upon
Honor
In our various "drives" we are beginning to uncover the cautious citizen Avho, for the life of him, cannot
understand why the government
needs so much money; who wonders
if some of it may not bo AA-asted;
Avho Avould like a guaranty that every dollar put into Liberty bonds
will be used to the best advantage
and that no bloated fortunes will be
made out of government contracts.
This same citizen wonders, too,
what Avill be done with thc excess
subscription to the Red Cross fund,
whether all the money is really needed and whether proper machinery is
at hand for protection against wastage. It is the old story of refusing
to subscribe to missionary funds because somebody is reported to have
said that some of the funds are used
in administration, it being assumed
that direct and absolute field Avork is
the only legitimate form of expenditure.
These overcautious people need to
be reminded that in this crazy old
world of ours we really must trust
somebody. Life has grown so complicated that each of us cannot as an
individual keep his hand upon every
detail.
Rather more than ninety per cent,
of the world's work is done upon
honor; besides, the people who undertake Red Cross and relief work
are like the missionaries, they are
not of the class that serves for
money, nor have any of them, ever
been known to amass fortunes thereby.
As to guaranty: Does the government promise thc recruit that he
Avill never be cold or hungry, or that
hc will never suffer loss of comfort
health or members? No. In the big
business of Avar everybody casts in
his lot, assuming that the Individuals
in charge Avill do the best they can,
leaving criticism and doubt to those
Avho are near enough at hand not
only to criticize wisely but to suggest remedies.

A Few Hundred of These Can Easily
Defend a Position Against
All Infantry Attacks
A Danish engineer has recently
taken out a patent for an apparatus
he has evolved and constructed, and
Avhich he calls "The Automatic. Soldier."
It consists ofa steel cylinder Which
normally is within a larger cylinder,
the Avhole being vertically sunk into
the ground. By means of a very simple mechanism which .is' set in motion by Avireless telegraph}', the inner cylinder rises to the height"'.'.'of
about 18 inches from the ground; at
the same time an automatic rifle
mounted on the inner cylinder fires
400 shots in any given.direction.
These "automatic soldiers" can be
controlled from a central position
some four or five miles behind the
line of defense. They can only be
seen by the enemy when they rise
from thc ground, and the installing of
them in the ground is a most simple
operation.
From trials already made it has
been proved that a fcAV hundred of
these steel soldiers can easily defend
a position against all infaniry attacks, however numerous the opposing forcemay be. As thcy are naturally uninfluenced by panic or disorder, they blaze. a>vay their 400
shots Avithout flinching.
In order to overcome them thcy
must be destroyed one by. one, a
very difficult matter, and as thcy are
controlled by wireless there is no
means of demolishing them.
Several Danish military experts,
Avho have Avitnessed the trials, are of
the opinion that it Avould be quite
feasible to line up. the automatic soldiers in the parts most exposed to
attack, ordinary troops being used for
the more easily defended.. positions.
Further, their opinion is that an army
worked on these lines Avould easily
win all the battles it undertook Avith
very small losses.
Morally Bankrupt
"Character is destiny," the old
Greek proverb says. Germany's moral deficiencies Avill prove her final undoing. There is nothing she can say,
no pledge to Avhich she can put her
signature, that will satisfy the honorable nations of the earth. They are
compelled to fight on against her until she is no longer capable through
other broken promises of menacing
the peace an4 freedom of the world.

The Kingdom of Hell
Germany Puts Her Trust in   Blood
and Iron
We do not want to take anything
from Germany except the power and
the means to do u* harm.
If a highAvayman steals m horse
and attacks us, are we, when we
have overcome the highwayman, to
give him back his horse?
Germany puts her trust in Blood
and Iron, and only by better blood
and better iron, and not by soft
speeches and mild advances, can she
be defeated.
Look at The Thing we are fighting.
Is it not vile and bloody and bestial
and cruel? It is all that; and It is
also formidable and strong.
Our watchword in war must be
Victory, in peace Safety.
There is no peace party in Germany. As it is with the religion of
Brute force, so it it with tho diplomacy, and the peaceful penetration
and the cult of frightfulness.
There ii in Germany a bitter black
rage and disappointment that the
Germans have not been able to excel every deed of frightfulness by a
frenzied orey of carnage and incendiarism and abominable outrage upon the British  people.
One would think that if a British
boycott of German trade is looked
upon by Germans as very bad for
Germany, then it ought to be very
good for us. If Germany so dreads
a boycott it is not because it will
hurt us, but because it will hurt
her.

Every time you go up stairs you
can test your state of health���the
condition of your blood.
Do you arrive at the top of the
stairs breathless and distressed?
Does your heart palpitate A'iolently?
Do you have a pain in your side?
Perhaps you CA'cn have to stop half
\A-ay up, Avith limbs trembling and
head dizzy, too exhausted to go further Avithout resting. These are unfailing signs of anaemia. As ^soon as
your blood becomes impoverished or
impure the stair-case becomes an instrument of torture. When this is so
you are unfit for Avork; your blood is
Avatery and your nerves* exhausted,
you are losing the joy of an active
life and paving the Avay for a further
break doAA-n and decline. In this condition only one thing can save you.
You must put new, richj red blood
into your veins without further delay and so build up your health
anew. To get this new, rich blood
give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a fair
trial, and they will give you new vitality, sound health, and the power
to resist and throw off disease. For
more than a generation this favorite
medicine has been in use throughout

Soon after the opening he felt called upon to speak a few words of.

Geneva Correspondence of the London Times
There is one outward and visible
sign of SAvitzerland's beneficent neutrality, hoAvever, which the Anglo-
Saxon finds it difficult to accept Avith
equanimity, no matter how long hc
may have been in the country^���
namely, the presence of Germans,
and their reception on a footing of
equality, in decent society. Say Avhat
you will, this goes against the.grain.
After all that has happened, after
all that the world has learned of the
real nature of the German, from his
own thoughts, Avords, and deeds; remembering the things that they haye
done in northern France, in Serbia,
in Roumania, and, above all, in
Avould-be neutral Belgium���one feels
that there must be something Avrong
with a political code or creed that
asks one to treat Germans as if they
Avere still Avithin the pale of civilization, to jog elboAvs with them in public places and show no sign of aversion or disgust. And, despite all the
indisputably good reasons which
have made neutrality the only possible policy for Switzerland, there are
hundredst of thousands of sturdy
Swiss citizens, in the German as well
as in the French cantons, who heartily endorse the sentiments of Benjamin Vallotton's "Polterab,'* who
deplore Avith him the necessity for
suppressing their deep-rooted Helvetic instincts of liberty and justice
because of the obligations of a neutral state. As Polterab puts it in one
sentence, "II s'agit de savolr al on est
pour le brigandage,"
As you sit at lunch at the Cafe de
la Couronne, or on the terrace of the
Beau Rivage, and the unwonted
sounds of German gutturals first assails your ears, the beauty of the
scene seems to lose something of its
magic, the sunlight becomes less
radiant, the air less eager. One looks
at these sleek, self-satisfied Teutons,
and remembering the Lusitania, and
the Armenian massacres, all the long
list of horrors perpetrated in the
name of their abominable kultur, one
Avonders whether in our day���as
some would have ug believe^���Germans will be permitted to resume
their methods of peaceful penetration in England, to belong to our
clubs, frequent our holiday resorts,
ahd pursue their business and pleasure as if nothing unforgivable had
happened. Surely it can never be in
the lifetime of the present generation, unless the German has been
so thoroughly chastened that he repents in sackcloth and ashes and
atones in full for all the crimes that
haye made the name of the Vater-
land a byword throughout all the
seven seas. For the present, judging
by. those one.meets in: SAvitzerland
he shows no signs of repentance. He
Avalks delicately, it is true, having
nothing to gain here by blustering,
and being generally engaged on
some-business, of propaganda, espionage, or trade offensive which
.calls for a display of urbanity; but
nothing in his demeanour suggests
consciousness of the fact that Germany's hardest task in the future will
be to live down the infamv that she
has earned by her methods of warfare. ���
The mentality of the German, and
especially his colossal A-ahity,. defiei
analysis, for all bur study of the
species. There is no doubt that the
ambushed Junkers who infest these
SAviss hotels look forward Avith calm
assurance to being.'-welcomed and allowed to resume their social and
commercial activities in England
and France, so soon as their good
"German peace" has-been concluded.
And unfortunately there is little, in
the serenely neutral atmosphere of
Switzerland  to undeceive  them.

Viewed Some of the Most Wonderful Places in History
A remarkable letter has been received from a plucky young soldier.
He writes: "Tavo years ago, I remember well, I was overcome by the
thought that year after year I should
go on hewing coal until I became too
old to work. Since enlisting I have
had experiences that I never imagined could be mine. I, an ex-collier,
have seen the wonderful river, have
trodden historic ground, have viewed
some of the most Avonderful places 'n,

"Despite dirt, despite annoyance*,
despite a thousand and one things,

"The element oi danger gives spice

I live to see the end.

A Democratic King
Fulfils His Difficult Role Simply and
Conscientiously
Under the heading "George V.,
Democrat King," Mms. Andree Viol-
Hs, London correspondent of tho
Petit Parisien, describes with M.
mingling of astonishment and admiration the effects produced upon
her mind by the sight of King:
George in the midst of his people on
the occasion of an Investiture at
Buckingham  Palace.
There is no difficulty about getting
in (she Avrites). It is unnecessary to
use any influence or provide oneself
Avith a letter of introduction or even
a ticket of admission. The king o��
England is to be seen by everybody*
I note the simplicity of his costume.
There is nothing outAvardly to distinguish him from all the others. While
"God Save the King" is being played
he stands at the salute, holding himself quite straight, his grave, frank
countenance full at once of dignity
and kindliness.   I look all around me.
There is no hysterical enthusiasm,
none of that open-mouthed wonder
Avhich doubtless is accorded to every
step, every histronic gesture of thtt
imperial kaiser. But in all eyes may
be seen the kind of trust and esteem
and affectionate pleasure with which
one looks upon a kinsman or a friend
of Avhom one is proud.
We have here a truly democratic
sovereign, one who, instead of imposing his will upon the people, feels
that he incarnates their sentiments
and wishes, who associates him��elf
with their labors, and shares their
anxieties and ordeals, who fulfils ids
difficult role simply and consciea-.
tiously.
When the American Labor repr*i
sentatlves said that with him they
had no impression of being in 0x4
presence of a king, they bestowed
the highest praise on one who is only
and who is quite content to be tha
first gentleman of his kingdom.
An Irresistible Temptation to Kill
If the long course of submarine
warfare has proved nothing else, Jt
has proved that any ship, whether it
carries women and children, or
vvounded men, or prisoners, or physicians or nurses���classes alwajm
hitherto exempt from attack-���
arouses in the German seamen an Irresistible temptation to kill. That is
why the indictment of civilization,
against Germany becomes everr diy
more formidable.-^-Frora the Phil**

'Lhe Spanish influenza has arrived iu Amerion, and will annoy

Tb starts with a chill, then fever
with ��i temperature from 101 to
103, headache, backache, red and
running eyes, pains and aches all
over with general prostration.
When attacked go to bed and call
���1 doctor.
"Treatment under the  direction
of the physician is  simple, bub important,   consisting   principally   of
rest  in   bed,   fresh   air,   abundant
food, with Dover's powder  for the
relief  of  pain.    Every  case   Avith
fever should be regarded as seriou?
and kept in bed ab least until temperature becomes  normal.      Convalescence  requires  careful   mail-
ogernent to avoid serious complications,    such    as   bronchial   pneumonia, whieh not infrequently may
have a fatal   termination.    During
the  present   outbreak   in   foreign
countries the salts  of quinine and

used during the  acute  attack, the
aspirin apparently with   much success in the relief of symptoms."

Perhaps the most dramatic an.1
heroic act of this world Avar was
the noble self-sacrifice of a mere
child of fourteen years. An Alsatian Boy-Scout whose father had
been killed in Alsace offered his
services to the Colonel of a regiment near Altkirch. Knowing
every path, mountain trail and
road, brave and intelligent, he was
accepted.
During many weeks he rendered
valuable services bringing information enabling French progress and
capture of prisoners. One day the
Colonel asked him to make a longer and more perilous quest than
usual. Our young hero started
full of zi'al and hope and was-
allowed to take his dog "Fidele."
Having to sleep out for two nights
he knew his dog would not betray
him.
All Avent w.ell for a long Avhile,
though the journey was full of
perils. Suddenly two burly Prussians barred his poth, and he was
taken before the. enemy oflicers in
charge of the nearest post.
Asked his name, "Karl Webler,"
he replied. "Where do you live?"
"With my mother at Altkirch."
"Your father?" "Killed!" "You
bear a German ; name and speak
German. Why are you holping
the enemy?" "I am Alsatian and
love France, my . Motherland."
"Stupid young fool," said the
officer, ''do you know your fate���
a spy?" ."Yes,sir." "Do you
love your mother?" "With all
my heart." -"Very well. You
love your mother and would like
to Jive. .1 Avill let you go and give
you one hundred francs if you will
tell me how many regiments and
how many -batteries, are defending
���Altkirch.-"' "No, sir, I cannot.'*
"Why?" "Because I promised
never. to betray "my country."
"Idiot!" .The. officer then said,
"I will give you five minutes.
Accept" my generous offer, or yoii.
die." The fatfful'minutes finished.
"Weli?" '.'Sir, I ainnob aud will
not beiray my country. "
A few ihin.utes after the little
hero, and his faithful dog were
dead.
The story was related by a
prisoner who witnessed   the scene.

NOW, the only way we can
possibly live up to that obligation is by going without in
order that our soldiers may have.
For the money we waste is not
money at all���it is equipment,
clothing, shot and shell that are
urgently needed in France.
By denying ourselves, therefore,
we enable Canada to procure to
the fullest extent the materials and
labor which she and our Allies need
for the successful prosecution of
the war.
What happens when we fail to
save?
A pull on labor by the Government
in one direction and a pull on labor
by the   people  in   the  opposite
direction. Hundreds of millions of
dollars are of no use to the country
if goods and services can be secured
only to the extent of eighty millions of dollars. So we must do
everything in our power to release
both goods and labor for the purposes for which Canada needs
them.
WHETHER it be food, coal,
wool, steel, leather, labor or
transportation, the result in
all cases is the same. Whoever
competes with the nation by freely
satisfying his own desires, selfishly
appropriates to his own use that
which is so urgently required for
our fighting men in France.
