that the Grande Prairie and Peace
River agricultural settlements would
likely have an output of 4,000,000
bushels of grain this season, an increase of 3,000,000 over last year's
crop. Hc said that few people could
realize the- extent of that great
northern region or had but little
conception of the illimitable resources that are lying dormant there
awaiting thc awakening touch of thc
human hand. Speaking of thc climate Mr. Smith said:
"The topographical conditions create a focus for chinook winds, and
for 80 per cent, "of thc winter thc
cattle feed in thc open and find their
own food among the 37 varieties of
nutritious grasses of which the country boasts. Then there are 21 hours
of shunshine in thc summer season
and that helps the crops to ripen
early. Almost every kind of grain
and vegetable can be grown there
that can be grown in southern Alberta. In fact thc climate, due to
thc aforesaid topographical conditions, parallels that of southern Alberta. ;'

New Zealand Forests of Long    Ago
Yield Present Day Riches
Forests of New Zealand which
flourished and died so many ages ago
thai thc ground thcy covered is now
swamp and" plain, arc yielding more
than a million dollars a year to
.Maori natives and whites who dig
kauri gum, the undecaying resin of
thc prehistoric trees.
Nearly $100,000,000 worth has been
gathered in the last half century and
an equal amount remains to be dug.
From two to twelve feet under tlie
surface of the earth the resin lies, in
strata which show that three successive forests matured and died in
the creation of thc deposit, which is
used by manufacturers of linoleum
and varnish in thc United States and
Great  Britain.
The trees of thc kauri forests of
today furnish the most valuable wood
of Ncw Zealand for general building
purposes. The tree is a giant of the
bush that ranks wilh the cedars and
firs of northwestern America in girth
but not in height. The diameter runs
from four to twelve feet, with specimens that havc measured 15 and even 20 feet. The height averages 80
to 100 feet, with a maximum of 150
The great gum deposits arc not
found in thc forests of the present
day but on fcrn-covcrcd hills, plains
and swamps. In some instances thc
buried forests flourished so many
ages ago that no trace of them remains except thc hundreds of millions of pounds of resinous exudations.
The gum fields arc principally in
the provincial district of Auckland in
the northern part of the north island, covering about 1,800,000 acres.
At one time kauri gum was so abundant that it was dug out with little
trouble-near the surface, but halt a
century's industrious digging has diminished thc supply until now it is
necessary to go down several feet
for it. In sonic cases thc excavations go to a depth of a dozen feet,
and recentl3r companies have been
operating with . converted gold
The gum, as it is found, varies
from the diameter of a marble to
lumps weighing 100 pounds or more.
In color it ranges from pale lemon
yellow and reddish brown to almost
black. Much of it is transparent or
semi-transparent. Its grades for market purposes' are as varied as its coloring. The most valuable deposits
arc found in dry soil and thc best
grades bring as much as $1,500 a

German Vandalism
In    Vengeful    Fury      Huns      Hack
I French   Homes   to   Pieces
Evidence accumulates that during ���
���their brief success in tltc 'Manic salient the Germans have been again
indulging in wholesale acts of vandalism, lu a message sent from
French army headquarters, Renter's
correspondent gives details of their
conduct while in possession of Chateau-Thierry.
The Germans were in the town
for some time and apparently
thought thcy would remain there indefinitely. When thcy found they
would have to give it up, tlicy immediately determined to take thc
only vengeance in their power. The
injuries which havc been inflicted on
the town arc such as could not bc
the result of shelling, the correspondent points out, as those houses
which suffered most were entirely
uninjured by shell, shrapnel or bullets.
"These houses," he said, "were
magnificently furnished, the walls
hung with costly tapestries and admirable pictures. Thc furniture is of
exceptional elegance and impressive
mirrors and charming statuettes
were  numerous.
"Today there is nothing that has
not been destroyed. Thc tapestries
have been hacked to pieces, the pictures slit from corner to corner, the
leather and other chair covers have
been ripped from their frames and
all thc delicate marqucrtric and the
irreplaceable examples of craftsmanship of past centuries have been
smashed. Thc legs have been torn
off thc tables and used in further
work of destruction. There is not a
mirror which has not been broken,
and the glass and china flung at them
lie jn  fragments  before them.
The costly carpets have been soiled and rent in every possible way
and ink pots flung at the silken papers on the walls. This vengeful
fury has been carried to the extent
of smashing nurseries and dolls'
houses. Thc fashion in which beds
and rooms havc been defiled is difficult of description. It would seem
the work of lunatics."

A Clear Case of Violation of Swedish   Territorial  Rights
During the earlier stages of the
war a Belgian steamer, the Ambiorix
was captured by tlie Germans in thc
Sound while she was seeking a safe
passage into the North Sea, by keeping well within Swedish territorial
waters. '''..'
It was a clear case of violation of
Swedish territorial rights. After repeated demands by the Belgian minister, backed by his British, French,
Italian and Russian colleagues, the
Swedish government .finally consented to lodge a protest with thc German foreign office strong enough to
produce the desired elfects. And the
Ambiorix/was-actually  released.
���The long established rule in such
cases is that the released steamer
shall be granted safe conduct back
to lhe spot where she was captured
and it was up to the nation whose
territorial rights had been infringed
by the captain to see that such baft
conduct be granted.
Instead of doing so, the Swedish
government peremptorily refused lo
let lhe steamer in question pass
through the Kogrund Channel along
thc southwestern point of Scandia,
which had been mined in the meantime and closed to international traffic.
This happened early last year. Thc
steamer was ordered to enter the
Swedish port of Trclleborg, which is
one of the termini for thc ferry
route between Sweden and Germany,
and there slit: was still lying when 1
left Sweden in July, says Jidwin
Ujorkman,  in   one   of  lhc  magazines.
Am! now 1 shall comc to the main
point of this interesting little incident: Xo sooner had tiie Ambiorixi
tied up nt Trclleborg than the Belgian niini.sUT, again backed by his
sriiinlly colleagues, turned to thc
Swedish foreign office with a demand that it fulfill its clear international obligation to thc utmost
limit by giviinr the steamer free and
r-.iie pas-age through thc mine pro-
t-ctcd Koerund Channel to the spot
��� ���It the- little Danish i.sland of liven
v, he:-,-   -iie  was  captured  originally.
And wh.ti did thc Swedish foreign
ofiii i tin n do? It tliicctcd an inquiry

Lloyd  George  Declares   Now    That
Food Question Solved, Tonnage Must Get Attention
"The problem of shipping is still
before the allies now that the food
question has been solved," said Premier Lloyd George in a speech at a
dinner given by the government in
honor of Herbert C. Floover, the
American food administrator, and
the French and Italian food ministers. America would have a gigantic army in France next year and
tonnage to bring supplies would be
greater than the tonnage needed to
bring the men across. Great Britain
and America were building ships
very fast, but the demand for tonnage was increasing. Economy in
thc use of food ;fnd other necessities
was  still  urgent.
"Notwithstanding tlie output of
shipping last month which for the
first time was greater than the losses, thc premier continued, and that
the surplus would increase yionthly,
still the demand vvas growing at an
enormous rate. Therefore every
shipload saved meant an addition to
thc arrangement and efficiency of the
American army on which the hopes
of the allies are based. The prcmier
added: "Consequently there is urgent need for stern and rigid economy.
"Wc are learning many tilings in
this war. When it began wc were
foreigners to each other. We shall
never meet as foreigners again. We
talk to each other now as though we
were old friends and we are beginning to discuss things as though we
were members of the same cabinet.
There is a common cause, common
ideal, common ardor and conimor
coal  car.
"Wc are making shipping common
as   far  as   possible.
"From the common struggle and
common sacrifices wc shall havc a
common triumph and a common
brotherhood which will be the surest guarantee of peace on earth and
good will among men of all races,
creeds, and nationalities to the ena
of time."
Air. Hoover said that the only
problem now was that of ships and
that problem had been helped greatly
by the solution of the food problem,
adding: "1 ani happy Ip say that
food supplies arc assured for the
period of the war and'I do not think
it necessary to estimate for more
than two years hence, lu less than
two ycars the result will be victory." Mr. Hoover endorsed the
plea of Premier Lloyd George for
economy, the necessity for which
had not relaxed because success thus
far had attended the efforts of thc
various  govern merits.

War's Heavy Toll
Heavy Decline in the Birth Rate in
All  Belligerent   Countries
The    war has caused the belligerent countries of  Europe the  loss  of
not    less    than  12,500,000    potential j
lives, because of the decrease in  the
number  of    births      resulting    from
the  war,  says . Sir  Bernard   Mallctt, j
registrar-general    of    Great   Britain;!
Britain, he asserts, has lost in these j
potential lives  650,000 children.    He j
believes  that, other  belligerent  coim-1
tries  have  suffered in    this    respect j
more  than has  Great Britain. j
Sir Bernard estimated that every |
day of the war means the loss of i
7,000 potential lives of children to !
the United Kingdom, France, Italy j
and the central powers. Dealing !
with thc decline in thc birth rate, he ,
said thc births registered in Fngland ���
and Wrales in 1913, numbered 881,800.1
In 1915, thcy fell to 814,614; in 1916 ;
there was a further fall to 780,520; ;
i and in 1917 to 668,346; a decline of i
125 per cent, compared witli 1913.

Cultivation  of Oranges  Has  Greatly
Increased of Late Years
We have comc very nearly to the
end of the orange season, says a
correspondent with the forces in
For months past we have revelled
in the juicy, luscious fruit. But they
have been a real. God-send to our
troops. Apart from the pleasant
variation they offer to thc ordinary
diet, they have a distinct medicinal
value, and our medical men have encouraged their consumption. The
soldier could get as many as ten for
a piastre (about 4 cents) so that
his consumption has been usually
only limited to the amount of change
he could dispose of.
The fruit itself was obtainable
practically all over Palestine. Although thc principal qrangc groves
arc at Jaffa and neighboring villages
in thc plain, thc natives soon realized the irresistible attraction of their
fruit for the British soldier, and
would find means of transporting
their golden ware to the most out-
of-the-way  places.
Jaffa comes after Spain and California in importance as one of the
world's orange marts. The export
before the war amounted to nearly
eight million francs. The value of the
crops, however, depended very largely on the ability of the shipper to
get liis consignment to the London
market  before   the   Spanish  crop.
The cultivation of oranges had
greatly increased of late years owing to the establishment of Jewish
colonies in Palestine, who brought
scientific methods into lhcir fruit
farming ancl sank a huge capital into
irrigation and water supply.
The outbreak of war in 1914 had
a very serious effect on thc
orange trade. It completely cut
off all means of export, and growers
were left with their entire crops on
their hands. Thc difficulty and ex-'
pense of obtaining fuel for their
pumping plants and thc absence of
any market for thc harvest compelled owners to neglect their groves
during  thc  past  three   years.
Anybody was welcome to carry
away as much as hc wished, provided he picked it off the trees, as it
ruined them lo allow the fruit to
hang, and even the expense of plucking was a consideration. So for
thrcc years thc crops have been
growing poorer and poorer.
The advent of our troops has saved thc situation. Another ycar of
neglect would have spelt the total
ruin of the groves. We have not
only supplied a market for the crop,
but the opening up of communication with Egypt, has provided facilities for the importation of fuel,
which will permit of the proper watering  and  manuring of  the  trees.
The lirst oranges ripen in November. For over six months now thcy
havc provided the troops with a delightful and refreshing dessert, but
arc now beginning to show signs of
Soon, however, we may look forward to apricots, which are fairly
plentiful, although not nearly so
healthy, while the vineyards promise an abundant supply of grapes
somewhat  later in  the  summer.

Captured Enemy Trade
At Brighton, Eng., Bernard Oppenheimer is spending $100,000 on a
scheme tor employing disabled soldiers and sailors in the diamond cutting industry. He is working in conjunction with the ministry of pensions and is building a factory cap^
able of employing 1,500 men. A
minimum weekly wage of ��2 after
six weeks' training is agreed upon.
The project is an effort to capture
this trade from the Germans, who
almost monopolized it before the
vvar. Ninety-nine per cent, of the

Strangle-hold of Sea Power
Seapower Has Proved    to    Be    the
Greatest Force in  the War
To close the war quickly is an exigent necessity for  Germany.     .Leaving everything else out of the      ac-
couiit, she is in danger      of      being
strangled by the grip of enemy    sea-
power.     That  will   not  relax  as.   thc
months slip by.    Already, despondent
Germans  arc saying  that they  could
not win even if,thcy crushed France.
Neither   England   nor     the       United
States  would give  in,  and     together
thcy  would   still   bar   Germany   from
the sea.        If Admiral  -Mahaii    were
alive he could, tell  the Germans  that
he  had  predicted   this   result.   Prince
Buclow  is alive,  and    hc    distinctly

escape most of the minor ills lhat
make life miserable for others. Don't
you envy thc friend who docs not
know what a headache is, whose digestion is perfect, and who sleeps
soundly at night? How far do you
conic from this description? Have
yon 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 perfect health will be
yours. The first thing to be done is
to build up yonr blood as poor blood
is thc source of physical weakness.
To build up the blood Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills is just thc medicine you
need. Every dose helps to make new-
blood which reaches every nerve and
every part of the body, bringing color to the cheeks, brightness to the
eyes, a steadiness to the hands, a
good appetite aud splendid energy.
Thousands throughout thc country

The world has long since abandoned hope of understanding the
Prussian psychology which glorifies
in such wanton outrages in defiance
of all the canons of humanity. We
have been forced by the frequency
of the attacks on hospital ships, hospitals and churches to believe that
the German commanders deliberately prefer such targets in some miserable misconception that the world
can thereby be cowed into submission by frightfulncss.
