and fireman, removed the obstructions from the track, detached the
engine, and ran to the nearest fort,

killed the Indians who were trying
to get $20,000 in gold out of the
safe in the express car.

He has ninety-eight chances c-f recovering fro in a wound to two

He has only one chance in 500 of

He will live live years longer because of  physical  training.
He is freer from disease in the

Leading   Cattle   Breeders   Establish
Herds in Alberta
One of the best testimonies of thc
possibilities of Alberta as a stock-
breeding country is shown by the
fact (hat some of the best-known
breeders in America are locating
here, having been attracted by the
ideal climate und natural advantages
of this province for stock breeding.
Among the latest to establish here

Motor mechanics ns a course supplementary to the business of a
"Sky Pilot" is Pte. Lambert'.^ idea of
efficiency, and in his ease it may
mean the'salvalioii of many souls.
Pie. Lambert before the war was
thc Rev. 1.amber! ministering to lhe
spiritual needs of scattered Methodist communities over an area of 30
miles in Alberta. When the call to
war came, he dofi'ed lhe cloth for
khaki and joined ihe ranks of one of
the lirst battalions. Today "lie i.s a
patient in the Orthopaedic Hospital
in Toronto, minus a log, but. as ambitious to fulfil his mission as the
day he left college.
To preach thc gospel in the west,
one must travel far in thc outlying
districts and thc necessity of getting
around was a problem until he hit
upon the idea of motor mechanics.
If a man could care for his car, do
all thc repairs, and possibly buy a
used car and renovate it at_ small
expense, it would do away with livery bills, and speed up even the advance of Christianity.
The minister is now one of the
most eager students in this popular
course of the vocational training ar-
langed by the military hospitals
commission, and the instructors say
shows a most marked ability in mechanics.

German Potato Crop Not
So Big After AH
Authorities Admit Now It Has Fallen Below the Expectations
The German food ministry, in_replying to a petition from working-
men in the Solingcn district, declares it is impossible to increase the
potato ration of one pound daily, because it is doubtful if the original
great expectations as to the size of
the potato crop are realized. Although tho potato crop undoubtedly
is good this year, it would seem
that thc German authorities had exaggerated the crop returns. In earlier announcements it was said thai:
the great potato crop had solved the
food difficulty.
The oats crop is so poor that German farmers will be permitted to retain for the feeding of their own
horses only enough fodder and grain
of their own raising to give each
horse a daily ration of two pounds
The farmers must-accomplish their
heavy work as best they can with
underfed animals. Army horses, even those doing thc heavy work of
hauling ammunition to the batteries
in Flanders, will fare little better,
The army borscs for months bave
been on a two-pound ration, resulting in the wholesale breakdown
of horse transport.

How the Vicious Circle
of Neurasthenia is Formed
WHEN the nerves are over-
strained by mental exertion, by accident or by
shock the irritation makes rest
or sleep impossible, and consequently there is no restoration
of the wasted nerve force.
In its turn digestion fails, because there is lack of nervous
energy to control the flow of gastric juices 'in the stomach and to
operate the other organs of
Failing to obtain the necessary
nourishment, the blood becomes
thin and watery, and as a, result
the nerves are further starved
and rendered less capable of
standing the strain put upon
In this way is formed the vicious circle of neurasthenia or
nervous prostration, and there is
no magical way in which the
circle may be broken up.
Overstrained Nerves,
Mn.'1 George Rosa, Angtnrt* gttneet,
Cornwall, Ont., -writes : "Some tw�� yearn

The nerve cells are starved and x
must have nourishment The
blood fails to supply this want, so
you must give to the blood in
condensed and easily assimilated
form the elements from which
Nature forms new blood and new
nervous energy.
This is exactly what Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food does, and it
does it so well that no treatment
for the nerves has ever met with
the enormous success of this
great food cure.
You can scarcely take up a
newspaper without reading of
someone who has been restored
to health and vigor and happiness
by means of this reconstructive
treatment. This is Nature's way
of effecting cure, and is, there *

Murder on the High Seas
Standing of German Seamen is   far
From Envious
It is a shocking story that is told
in the Norwegian papers of the murderous attack of October 17 on the
convoy bound from Norway _ for
England. But the horror of it is
extraordinary only because we are
provided with more detail than usual,
I only because the German achievement in tiiis instance was not absolutely "spurlos." The official German report of- October 19 announced
that "our-fighting forces returned
without loss or damage," and it was
doubtless their eagerness to get
away in lime that prevented them
from completing the massacre of the
men and women who were endeavoring to escape in  lifeboats.
Many similar instances    have    already been described.      To   recall., a
few: A lifeboat of the Dutch steamer Hcstia was deliberately fired    on
and  sunk by   a  German    submarine,
six Hollanders  and  seven  Chinamen
being killed; one man was killed and
J several  wounded    while    trying    to
'mend a damaged lifeboat of the Danish  steamer  Fredcn;   thc    crews    of
! the   Swedish    steamers    Baltic    and
JVanland were dealt with in the same
'manner, boats from  the latter   hav-
;ing been fired on for almost an hour
: after the   ship was    abandoned.     A
great    many    British crews haye,_ of
course,    been    stibjcclcd    to   similar
treatment,  the    most notorious     instance   being    that    of    the   Belgian
; Prince, when nearly all thc survivors
were deliberately drowned by    their
captors. By now the number of merchant seamen killed by the  Germans
amounts  to more   than  9,000.
It is deeds of this kind  that have
brought upon thc heroes of the German navy thc loathing and contempt
of all who    follow    the  sea.     They
account  for   tlie  formation    of    the
Merchant Seaman's   League  in   England  and  for the drastic  resolutions
of the Seaman's and Firemen's union
j relating to the treatment of thc Ger-
| man Hag and of German sailors aft-
jer the war. Tlie strength of the fee}-
'ing among these men and its possibilities were  shown  clearly    enough
! in the failure of the pacifist congress
i at .Stockholm, and it is by no means
1 to   be  taken  for  granted   that    they
;\\ill forg��:t their wrongs as soon as
the  war  is  over.     The  future  standing  of  the   German   seamen    among
'men of their calling is far from envi-
��� able.���From  the Ncw York Tribune.

The Sheep Industry
Sheep are Selling at Record Prices
This Year
Farmers who were foresighled
enough to go in for sheep raising
are truly to be envied these days.
Following the high prices obtained
,';or wool, they are now securing
(higher prices than ever before for
their sheep, both for breeding and
for mutton purposes. Last August a
sheepman here ventured to predict
that breeding ewes would reach 1hc
$18 mark���an unheard-of price,
which at that time seemed unattainable, despite the high price at which
wool had been selling. This price
was, however, eclipsed on the Calgary market last week when a nurubber of breeding ewes were sold for
$20���thc highest price ever paid for
stock sheep at any central market in
Western  Canada.
The sheep industry is only lust
getting a foothold iu Western Canada, but it is surely coming into its
own. Many farmers are entering
the business this fall, and indications
point to a wonderful development ir>
thc future. A breeder who has sold
13,000 head this fall, mostly in small
lots, is of the opinion that in two
years there will be one million cheep
in Southern Alberta alone.

Sore.corns, hard corns, soft corns*
or any kind of a corn, can harmlessly
be lifted right out with the fingers if
you apply upon the corn a few drops
of frcezone, says a Cincinnati authority.
For little cost one can get a small
bottle of frcezone at any drug store,
which will positively rid one's feet of
every corn or callus without pain.
This simple drug dries thc,moment
it is applied, and does not even irritate thc surrounding skin while applying it or afterwards.

Men Excel in Endurance by Reason
of Inheritance
Dr. Dudley Sargent says that a.
woman can    endure    more    physical
that she
ay irom the savage state. Therefore, she should
make a good fighter. Dr. Sargent is
weak in his premises and his conclusions.
Women stand pain and suffering-
better than men do, but hardship of
camp and trench involves more than
these. It involves powers of endurance in which men excel because of
several thousand years of hard training. Mr. Kipling agrees with the
Harvard physician with respect to
thc instinctive savagery of women.
Parkman's study of the American
aborigine bears him out. But it is
common observation, we believe tltit
thc primitive sticks out with equal
force and frequency in men aud women in the civilized state.
Fighting is primitive business. It
has been highly specialized and organized and disciplined, but it is still | j
an ata " ,!    ' '~~      Ar "  ' :i"
and in
man fought to possess and protect
his woman. The red Indian let his
squaw devise torture for the captive,
but hc didn't let her fight. The German warrior relegated women to
church, kitchen and children. Thc
peace-loving peoples, driven to war,
put their women to binding up
wounds, and it is service they Jove
best- Fighting is not in their lives,
and never has been.
Dr. Sargent is superficial. He surveys certain physical conditions and
leaps to an unwarranted conclusion.
He should take counsel with Olive
Schreiner. She is a woman and she
knows better than he how women
feel toward war. They hate it.���

Indians   Who   Fought   in    Flanders
Take Advantage of Technical
Training  Offered
Astride an office stool with
Lynn shod feet thrust through
mugs, Pte. Albert Slyres, a
blooded Mohawk Indian, lias
braced thc civilization which
fought for in Flanders, and determined to wrest from thc future a fortune from white man's business.
Styres was one of the 1,300 Indians
who enlisted in the various battalions
of thc Canadian armies. Hc crossed
with the first division and came back
lo Canada seriously wounded and so
disabled that only the stoic spirit of
his forbears stood him against despair.
Spring came, but his cars were
stopped to thc call of the Red Gods.
He asked_ for a business course and
thc vocational officers granted it.
Toda3r hc has mastered typcwritingi
bookkeeping, shorthand and general
office work, and is holding a position
which yields him $20 a. week at present and the promise of a more golden  future.
John Uallentinc, a western Indian
who enlisted in Balileford, Sask., has
been trained in gas engineering and
made a success of his course.
He had been a farmer but injuries
to his knee in a football game behind the lines in a dull moment in
the fight, had put him beyond the

The Clever Boy
Unduly Retarded by Masses in Elementary Scbool3
Professor J. MacLean of Manitoba
University, says: An easy-going kind
of education is bad for anyone, but
it is doubly injurious to the lad who
is going on to the secondary school
and then to the university. He is
' handicapped early in his career by
;an acquisition of bad intellectual hab-
. its, not to speak of the time wasted
I which he will have to make up in the
secondary school and the university.
A patriotic educationalist perhaps
says: "Our system has been devised
to meet thc educational requirements
of the masses, not to meet the wants
of the exceptionally clever boy who
is going on to the ��� university." It
may, however, be denied that the
present system does as much as it
might for the. masses, and on tlie
other hand affirmed that a national
system of education cannot afford to
neglect in the elementary stage the
! interests of the secondary school and
| thc university. If it does, wealthy
parents will send their' children to
'private schools and from them will
arise those class distinctions which
it is one of the merits of our national school system that it discourages.
If the present course of studies is
all that a dull boy can take in 8 or 9
years, facilities should be provided
to enable thc clevei; boy to lake it in
5 or 0 j-cars. But is the dull boy
such a dullard? The elementary
schools even on the present lines
could bc greatly improved, and the
secondary school and thc university
each have an opportunity of realizing thc educational aims which pertain to them."

actually enrich and purify the blood,
and in this way build up the system,
tone and strengthen the nerves and
invigorate the vital organs.
Serious diseases generally come
from some simple disorder that, has
been neglected. Therefore any thinning of the blood should be looked
upon as a warning sign, and more
serious illness should bc avoided by
the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
In the case of young girls and women thc blood is peculiarly, liable to

Mine and smelter production
havy been improving steadily during the last few months from the
3.0-w mark established in July aud

Why The Telephone Is Instantaneous
Sound travels at the rate of 1.070 feet per second; the
voice when telephoning travels at the rate of 15,000 miles per
second. Think of it! The reason souud travels faster by telephone is because it is accelerated by electricity, not verynmcli,
but enough for the purpose.
So you can see the telephone is the quickest���the surest to
send, the quickest to reach the ear you seek, and the easiest to
bring the answer buck.   From anywhere, too.

Over The Top"
Nature has made British Columbia rich and
beautiful The waters that fun through and
surround it, are teeming with edible fish, include
ing clams. Its lofty sky/scraping mountains are
filled with almost every known mineral, while
the yellow power of earth'gold, it hides amid the
sands of many a creek, Its fertile valleys and
hillsides contain millions of acres that are doing
nothing to go "OVER THE TOP/' for lack of
cultivation* Its forests of gigantic trees are the
envy of the world* The scenery is grandly
magnificient, while the climate contains the ozone
that puts pep into the human frame, filling it with
life, health and energy,
With all  these   advantages  this   Province
should have millions of happy people within its
confines, and yet it has a scant 400,
