Dear Sir:
You will no doubt wonder
why I haven't acknowledged the
receipt of your letter of June 10
and the parcel enclosing the watch.
The fact is I've been up the coast
for several weeks and my mail was
.held in Vancouver pending my
return. *

the friends in Greenwood for your
splendid gift and I appreciate your
kindness more than I can say.
Hoping you are all  prosperous

Many years ago two men in New-
York bearing the same name came
west. One of them was killed at
the Freddie Lee mine, and buried
in the cemetery at New Denver,
with nothing to mark the spo6. No
one knows what became of the
other man. For years there has
been $1800 in the bank to the
credit of one of these men bat the
relatives cannot tell to which man
it belonged. The man to whom
the money belonged had a missing
finger. This might solve the mystery if the remains could be found,
bnt as nothing marks his grave, it
wonld take a pile of digging in the
cemetery to find a corpse with a
missing finger.

Acting upon the report of Chas.

30 years
In the beginning it was called
Eldorado City, but the name was
changed to New Denver in June
1892. Hunter & McKinnon had
the first store in that town, while.
Gething & Hendfirpon held the first
hotel license. W.bR. Will, George
Henderson, and Neil Gething built
the first cabin. When the town
was surveyed, it stood in tho middle cf a street, and Bill}' Will dissolved it with "fire, that being the
easiest way to get  it off the  road.
The first cabin in Nelson was
built by Fred Hume and Bob
Lemon. The 'second was built by
Jack Thompson, who is now operating the Echo mine at Silverton.
He made a fortune in the early
days of the Slocan, afterwards operating an orange grove in California for some years until he begau

Mexico City it- the tirae.Madero
was, assassinated, and for six days
never went outride of the Porter
Hotel, owing-to the'rain of bullets,
that .constantly .hit the building.
At that time, the streets of the city
were filled with dead soldiers after
the fighting teased. The bodies
were 'pi'e'd hi heaps on the street.-,
saturated with oil and burned. As
Mexico City is built- of cement and
stone it is perfectly safe to burn
dead greasers on the streets. Finding Mexico too dangerous, and car-
balent, Jack came north with his
amiable wife.and 1= now a resident
of New Denver. Jn that beautiful spot the Lnoorn of Ampric-i,
there i3. a very remote chance of
ever seeing a band of Mexicans
shoot'up the town. After .-lieu a

"I blistered my heel badly by
wearing new shoes. Some dye from
my stocking got into it and caused
a -poisoned sore. It was extremely
painful and for a week I could not
put a shoe on. Then I heard ol
Zam-Buk and commenced using it.
'It was Just wonderful the way it
drew out the poison and inflammation, ended the pain and healed
the sore. Zam-Buk is certainly the
finest balm in existence���everyone
ahould know of it."

Is War Veteran at Eighteen
Three    Years    a    Machine    Gunner
With thc First Brigade
Thc "baby" of thc latest party of
veterans to reach Toronto in point
of years, but not of service, was Pte.
Ernest Harding, of Hamilton, three
years a machine gunner with thc
First Brigade and passing- his
eighteenth birthday last month. Hc
has been twice wounded.
Getting past thc doctors with the
36th Battalion in April, 1915, he spent
16 months up thc line in France with
thc M.G. section, and did defensive
work with thc Vickers "rip-rips" in
practically all the big engagements,
especially when Fritz came over, lie
���was wounded at Ypres in June, 1916,
and finally, at Passchendaele, on
November 23 last.
"1 went over thc top three times
before Vimy Ridge, although we did
not usually go with thc iirst attackers but everybody went over at
the Ridge and I couldn't count thc
number of times wc went over on
April 9 and afterwards," said this lad
with two gold stripes.
Pte. Harding's chief interest was in
thc Distinguished Conduct medal
won by his older brother, Sergt.
Leonard Harding, at Passchendaele,
when hc himself, was put out of the
war. Another brother, Clifford,
wounded at Vimy Ridge, is already
home again. Thc family live at 272
Beach  road.
"All this bunch would go back
again; they can't help it, it's in their
bones," said  Pte. Harding.
Urge the Cottage Cheese
Pound of Cottage Cheese    Has    the
Same Food Value as a Pound
of Meat
To encourage thc use, as well as
the making of cottage cheese, a cheap
and palatable substitute for meat, thc
United States department of agriculture has launched a campaign in
which nearly a hundred field workers
will take part, and which is to carry
to every state in thc union this lesson.
Cottage cheese, is made from skim
milk���now largely wasted or fed to
animals. A pound of cottage cheese
has the same food value as a pound
of meat. Make cottage cheese; save
the meat for our soldiers and thc
allies.
Three of thc big divisions of thc
department of agriculture arc working in the campaign, which also has
the co-operation of the United States
food administration.

Keep Your Shoes Neat
Save the Leather and Improve Your
Appearance
War conditions havc called into
use for army shoes and equipment
millions of pounds of leather that
otherwise would bc used for civilian
shoes. The result of this enormous
drain on the normal markets is reflected in the advanced price of
shoes. With butter, eggs, meats and
product of all kinds all struggling to
out-climb each other and striving for
the crown of high price, every method of economy should be adopted in
the home.
Shoes can be preserved and their
life lengthened wonderfully by proper care.
Shoe leather deteriorates from exposure to weather, and when mud
and slush carpet our walks and
crossings shoe leather is indeed undergoing strenuous service and deserves some care.
Every method that will prevent
the devouring action of thc elements
on leather will naturally lengthen the
lives of shoes.
"Keep Your Sliocs Neat"���so read
thc advertisements of The F. F. Dal-
wc
will be, and the more determined the
resistance. France has long utilized
every available man and woman in
the republic. Great Britain i.s now
arranging to raise the military age
limit and extend conscription to Ireland. Every man in thc British empire is expected to do his duty. It
must be thc same in America. Every
man here must be ready to serve his
country. The. battle in France has
begun with German guns; it must
end with allied victorv.���Washington
Post.
the!feel sure this patriotic appeal should
bc gladly adopted by the public���"A
word  to  the wise" as it were.

York state asking them, to pledge
themselves and members of their
households to abstain entirely, from
the use of wheat and wheat products
until thc next harvest, was issued by
. John Mitchell, president of the Ncw
York food commission and state
chairman of the federal food board.
"Wheat must be saved," says the
appeal. "It is needed abroad for
American, English, Irish, Scotch,
Canadian, Australian,. French and
Italian youths fighting for you and
civilization. It is a big part of their
daily sustenance.
"In. all sections of. thc country
there is a general movement for
total abstinence from wheat: and
wheat products until the next harvest. In Ncw York city 75,000 clubmen have voluntarily surrendered to
a wheatless  program.
Total abstention is not. expected,
however, in families whose members
engage in manual, labor, if it means
more than it is "humanly possible
to perform."
Everybody Must Work
Loafing is now illegal. All persons domiciled in this country arc
now supposed to work or show
cause why they are idle according to
the ncw order in council. The law
applies to all between the ages of_ 16
and 60, and heavy penalties are imposed against offenders.
Clocks of all kinds were found at
the house near St. Nazairc where thc
occupant, an eccentric Spaniard, was
arrested for having wireless. Hc
says it was there only to pick up the
official time from the EifrclTowcr.

Germany Wanted War
White Paper Shows Kaiser Preparing
for War in March, 1914
Repealed declarations of the German emperor and Hindenburg and
'; Ludcndorft, that the war -was forced
on Germany, and assertions froni thc
same sources that Germany was taken by surprise by the Russian mobilization, attaches, particular interest
to. certain papers taken from Capt.
von -Papon, late military attache at
Washington.
Among thc papers which have
been .published by. thc. British, government in a White. Book, appears a
letttcr from R. von -Wild of the German war ministry, in Berlin to Capt.
von Papen, seeking information regarding the best mcans of blowing up
railroad trains "in the event of ah
European war." Thc significant part
is that this letter is written March
12, 1914, about five month's before
the outbreak of the war. This-'.letter
says: "According to newspaper reports several, railway trains were
blown up: by .revolutionaries during
the troubles in Mcxica. In order to
form au opinion whether, in the
event of an European war, explosion j
of this kind would have to he reckoned with, it is requested! that if possible, information- should be obtained
as to how':these attacks have been
carried out. Were mines and. explosives placed in lines which were
little guarded, or were the attacks
carried out: on the train by.igniting
a charge of. dynamite, or by llic'employment of infernal machines?"
Capt. von Papcn, . replying from
Mexico, where it is now--'known that
hc was industriously planting the
seeds of .German propaganda, did riot
regard the operations of the Mexican
revolutionaries as. of any particular
value, for .four--months later he wrote
from Mexico City: "I am convinced
from personal evidence that all the
recent cases of destruction of rail-'
way lines by explosion wcic brought
about by burying dynamite under the
line itself and then igniting it by an
electric current as soon as the train
had reached the appointed,place, j

A Prussian Speaks Out
Warning Is Plainly Addressed to the
Prussian Land Barons
Batocki, Germany's first food dictator, who was deposed last summer,
has .made a maiden speech in his
present capacity of governor of the
Prussian province of which Konigs-
bcrg is the capita!.. He defended his
food policy arid excused his failures
on the ground of "inadequate authority." Discussing Germany's present
situation, Batocki said:
"It would be cowardice.not to look
things straight in the face. Thc position is serious. We shall come
through, but only if every farmer
docs more than his duty and shoulders, the most extreme burdens: rather
than .hold back in any direction.
Victory will . be vouchsafed us only
if wc suppress ruthlessly our own.
wishes and private interests, sacrificing all and sundry for the sole
benefit of thc Fatherland."
Balocki's warning is plain'y addressed to the Prussian land barons
(the real junkers) whose greed and
glurtony arc blamed in Germany for
the shortage of agricultural produce
in the towns and cities.
Spying on Spies
German Spies are Adepts at   Opening Bags and Steaming
Letters
Spy spies on spy in Germany. The
German office-holder, ex-ambassador
Gerard writes in The Times, fears the
spies of liis rivals. "I often saidto
Germans holding high office during
thc war. 'This strain is breaking
you down���all day in your office.
Take an afternoon off and come
shooting with mc.' The invariable
answer was, T cannot; thc _ others
would learn it from their spies and
would spread the report thatl neglect business.'" German spies are
adepts at opening bags and steaming
letters���all thc old tricks. Thc easiest way to baffle them, Mr. Gerard
says, is to write nothing that cannot be published to the world. "For
a long time after the beginning of
the war I was too busy to \yritc tlie
weekly report of official gossip .usually sent home by diplomatists. I
suppose thc Germans searched our
courier bags for such a report vainly. Anyway its absence finally got
on thc nerves of Zimmcrmann so
much that one day hc blurted out,
'Don't you ever write reports to
your government?'"

Model Towns
For Disabled Soldiers
Major   Mowat     Will     Propose    A
Scheme of Community
Settlements
Major H. M. Mowat of Parkdalc
(Toronto) has given notice of a resolution in the commons providing
for community settlements for disabled soldiers, with thc government
acting as financing contractor and
designer of soldiers' model villages.
Major Mowat's idea is to have well-
planned little towns with houses for
the soldiers and their families, where
they can engage in making various
articles of handicraft such as toys,
art objects, etc., formerly imported
into Canada. These little manufacturing centres would help to supplement pensions and give congenial
and salutary employment to the returned men.
The management of each village
will be, according to Major Mowat's
plan, in the hands of the residents,
and individual ability and bent will
be considered. The resolution provides that "sucJ. communities shall
be self-supporting after the initial
outlay, and consist of homes, not
barracks or hospitals, that the occupants shall havc an option to purchase; lhat all buildings rhall bc
architecturally sanitary and beautified and supplied with electric power, and that homes be alio available
for widows and orphans of soldiers
commensurate with their
and mcans."
Have Come To
The Death Grip
No  Longer  Foom   for   Compromise
Between Ideals of Allies
and Enemy
In a special preface lo a volume
containing extracts from the prime
minister's war speeches, Mr. Lloyd
George says:
"I never believed that the war
would bc a short war or that in some
mysterious way, by negotiation, or
compromise, wc "could free Europe
from the malignant military autocracy which is endeavoring to trample it into submission and moral
death.
"I always believed that the machine which has established its despotic control over the minds and
bodies of its victims and has then
organized and driven them to slaughter, in order to extend that control
to thc rest of the world, would only
be destroyed if free peoples proved
themselves strong and steadfast
enough to defeat its attempt in arms.
"Thc events of the last few weeks
must_ havc made it plain to every
thinking man that there is no longer
room for compromise between the
ideals for which wc and our enemies
stand. Democracy and autocracy
have come to thc death grip; one or
thc other will fasten its hold on mankind.
"It is a clear realization on this
issue which will bc our strength in
trials to come. I havc no doubt that
freedom will triumph. But whether
it will triumph soon or late, after a
final supreme effort in thc next few
months, or long drawn agony, depends on the vigor and self-sacrifice
with which thc children of liberty,
especially those behind the lines,
dedicate themselves to the struggle.
"There is no time for case, delay
or debate. The call is imperative;
thc choice is clear. It is for each
free citizen to do his part."

Horsepower of Windmills
May Find It Desirable in the.Future
to Get Power From the Air
The suggestion is often heard that
the windmill'should be used.for power purpose on the farm. To try to
use. a single mill for power purposes
would be like trying to use a dog for
draft purposes. A large..mill'running
in a strong wind, will seldom develop
as .-much as live horsepower.' If its
power can be steadily absorbed, as
by a storage battery, and their used
at a higher rate for short periods, it
\vill do very wML. One of the best
types of windmill, steel, 12 feet in
diameter, in a 25-niilc wind develops
only one and a half horsepower. The
16 foot mill under the same conditions develops about two and a third
horsepower. Europe uses windmills
in batteries; a number of'mills' work^
ing to ��� get her���ior power, purposes,
and possibly, we will iiiid it. desirable
in the future to get power froin the

Quebec Lady Tells How Her Children Were Cured of Childish Weakness and Made Strong and Well.
St. Honorc, Chicoulimi, Co., Que,
(Special).���"I-have two fine little
girls, thanks to Dodd's Kidney Pills,
and I can't tell how grateful I am."
It was  out of a full    heart     that
Madame  Pierre Pepin, a well-known

Whether or not kidney disease is
hereditary, thc fact remains that
many children suffer from weak kidneys that arc unable to do their full
work of. straining all the impurities
out of the blood. Thc result is that
many parents whip their children,
when what tlicy really need is a remedy for their kidneys. Dodd's Kidney Pills ha : been used in Canada
for over twenty-five years as a kidney remedy. If you don't know of
thc great work they are doing, ask

England's Idea in Great War
Official Historian of Battle of Somme Tells New York of Britain's Achievements
John Mascficld, speaking at Aeolian Hall in Ncw Vork, recounted
what Great. Britain had done in die
European conflict, and spoke of lhat
"idc;i of England for which men arc
dying along 5,000 miles of war." Of
the present battle, fought largely
over/ground gained in the .battle of
the Soiiime, of which hc, as .official
historian of -at battle knows avcry
inch, he said: "J have ��o comfort for
you . It is the fortune of war. Fortune is like that in war. People
say, 'How comes it that your men
were .not there, that your reserves
arc not called in greater numbers?'
All wc can know, now is that the
highest command does not believe
j this to be the decisive, battle, of thc
I war. The decisive battle may come
this  year  or  next." .
He spoke of thc advantages of the
eiicniy in this battle���his concentration of guns from the eastern, front
and of Russian guns,-tlie; fact//that
this "strip /of Prance; isV no. good/for
a defensive position," ; the cneriiy's
"great body of labor made up of the
'enslaved'/ peoples of Belgium arid
northern France and Poland. "We
have no such body of slaves," he
said, "and in this the enemy has the
advantage over us. But I siippose
that the generous thing can never
be-the. wrong thing."'
Of Russia he said: "Don't think
for.a monicnt . that . 1 criticize the
Russians. . Tlicy arc trying to get
liberty, and it is for us who already
have liberty to help, them pay the
price."-

The Royal Northwest Mounted

caving in the keeping of law and
order in the outlying (and in some
cases' slightly disaffected) districts of
the Dominion, has at last been given
b chance to prove themselves on the
battlefields of France and Flanders;
For long members of the famous
force have been agitating for an opportunity to show their mettle in
actual warfare. They have chafed
against the comparatively sedentary
life of police work 011 the prairies,
^J and have made all sorts of proposals
-' to the government, from thc joining
as mounted rifle or cavalry regiments
for work in France, to the raising of
squadrons of horse for work in Mesopotamia or Palestine.
It has at last been decided that
several squadrons of horse will be.
laiscd among the members of the
famous force in the west to make up
for the grievous losses sustained by
thc Canadian cavalry in the splendid
rearguard action in Picardy recently.
Already upward of four hundred men
have been recruited from the forces,
and it is expected that two hundred
��� more will be raised. About three
squadrons arc expected to be recruited, and it is hoped that they will be

The Old British Spirit
When   Words   and^ Speeches    No
Longer Matter
Had a Chatham been in parliament
with this great battle in.progress we
cannot imagine him saying that
there was no cause for "additional
anxiety" or tremulously explaining
that our generals had not been surprised. No, he would have spoken
upon a braver note. Hc would have
said that his government and his
country rested, as upon a rtrck, on
thc skill of our generals and the valour of our soldiers, that our army
had met the enemy before, when wc
were weaker and they stronger than
now, and that he had no fear of anything the enemy could do. Such is
the old British spirit, and we rejoice
that it lives in our' army today, although it seems to have deserted
some of our statesmen. At this great
hour in the nation's destinies, when
the fate of England rests on the balance between victory and defeat, we
see what matters is thc spirit. It is
the British spirit, the old dogged, invincible fighting spirit of the British
nation that lives in our army" and
navy and is saving, the British nation
today. Wc live in times when words
and speeches no longer matter, we
arc being tested by the tests of reality, the tests of war, and if we endure these tests it is because the true
and brave heart of the British nation still beats m its fighting forces.

In an address delivered before the

to do her will. Under whatever conditions they entered the war, they
are not now free agents, but the
mere puppets of Berlin. On the side
of the allies, however, we sec a company of peoples who are fighting not
for their selfish ends only, but for
thc loftiest of human principles. Tlicy
arc the defenders of freedom and

Joy Riding- in a Tank
Member of Volunteer Crew Tells of
Experiences During Ups
and Downs
Joy-riding in a British tank means
hanging on for dear life in a deafening roar of machinery while the machine lumbers up and down thc
grades, alternately tossing its passengers first one way and then the
other. A trial trip is thus described:
"Wc accepted, with some trepidation, an invitation to make a journey in the machine. About half a
dozen of us entered by thc narrow
door and were cramped up on thc
little patform which runs on each
side of thc machinery. We held on
like grim death with our hands. For
a few moments everything went well,
Then there was an upward movement of thc fore part of the tank
ancl in a trice we found ourselves
without a foothold and were suspended by our hands from thc "holdfasts" which are fixed for the purpose to the roof of the car. We
knew we were mounting thc steep
gradient and were not sorry when we
reached thc top.
"The vessel jerked violently as shc
started on her downward course. In
thc twinkling of an eye we were
throwAuitrfb thc same position as before���only more so���with our legs
dangling and our hands gripped in
thc effort to hold on and prevent being thrown all in a heap. We
eventually emerged none thc worse
for the trip, but with a vivid impression of what must be thc life of the
gallant crews to whom our experience was a trifle as compared . with
theirs i the midst of shot and shell
and with their own guns blazing
away.
""The roar of the machinery in the
confined space was terrific. The man
with thc strongest lungs, shouting in
the ear of a man of the acutcst hearing could not make a syllabic heard."

course, to the old land alone^ but in
this country, too, thc last three
weeks have brought to a considerable extent a return of the earlier
spirit. In the face of the great German attempt to force a speedy decision, thc war weariness and the querulous complaining which were a
source of such real danger have ceased. It is much easier to stand the
strain of days and weeks of supreme
crisis and in that course to bc true
to thc best that is in us than it i.s
to keep a grip on ourselves and a
sane outlook during months and
years of slow movement which do
not seem to lead to any result, cither for good or ill.���Edmonton Journal.

Co-Operative
Wool Marketing
Co-operative Wool Marketing   Is No
Longer an Experiment
Profiting by thc success of numerous fanners last season, a larger
number are expected to lake advantage of the co-operative method of
marketing their wool this year. In
Manitoba and Saskatchewan, the provincial governments have arranged
to assemble the wool, while in Alberta���which has become the greatest wool producing province in Canada���it will be handled in the province by the various wool growers'
associations. Last February the
sheep owners of the Dominion met
at Toronto, Ontario, and organized
an association, known as the Canadian Wool Growers' Limited, which
will act as an over head selling and
purchasing agcnc3r. This association,
being a farmers' organization, the
Manitoba government lias decided
to give them an opportunity of selling the wool clip of the sheep owners in Manitoba who consign their
wool to the department of agriculture. A large proportion of the clip
of the other provinces will also be
sold by the association.
Co-operative wool marketing is 110
longer -.in experiment. Experience has
established unquestionably the advantage to thc sheep grower of sell-"
ing in this way. Selling on grade
is helpful to the grower because of
its educative features. It has shown
the farmers how to handle their
wool so that it will bring the highest price, and has brought home to
them the possibilities of sheep raising in  Western  Canada.

Letter Written by a Pupil    of   the
Manitoba School for the Deaf
It is a popular error to imagine
that children are not able to realize
the truth about this great war. The
same thing might with justice, be
said of many adults and it: is open
to question whether any adult can
state the doctrine of "Substitution,
Support and Carry On" more clearly
J and forcibly than lias been done by
I Josephine Tryon, a pupil of the 'Man-'

leading:
"Some people thought that deaf

German Navy League Wants It for
Future Base Against
England
While Count von Hertling continues to repeat that Germany has no
idea of extending her territories in
thc west by mcans of forcible annexations, the German navy league,
in a circular recently received in
London, insists upon the importance
of the coast of Flanders as the base
for German operations against England in thc next war. Thc circular
says:
"It is along the coast of Flanders
that thc road passes to London, the
heart of England, and the only English port on thc east coast which has
hitherto hardly lost any of its importance because it cannot bc p.ut- out
of competition owing to its splendid
clocks ancl the density of the population. But the whole sea traffic
through thc channel to thc Thames
is exposed to flank attack by our
submarines 011 lhc coast of Flanders.
It would not be impossible to send
submarines from the German coast
to thc channel, although they Avould
have to overcome considerable difficulties. But it would be pretty hopeless to make a raid with destroyers,
if our destroyers had to cover the
whole course from the mouth of the
Ems along the Dutch coast;_ they
would bc deprived of the possibility
of effecting a surprise, and the prospect of success would" be greatly diminished."  '.';
The navy league also explains that
possession of the coast of Flanders
is essential for future air raids on
Engla. 1.   It says:
"It is obvious that our aircraft
cannot do without thc coast of
Flanders for their attacks upon England and also for the air reconnaissances. Possession of thc coast
mcans au extension of the effective
range of both our militarv and our
air forces; our naval air forces simply cannot do without ii."   .

Ancient Mortar
Examination of Great Wall of China
Shows That thc Mortar Was .
Stronger than BrieKs
An examination'of thc bricks and
mortar in the great wall of "'China
was recently made at . Shankaikwan
by J. C. Witt, a chemist attached to
the bureau of science, Manilla. Mr.
Witt reports that the bricks are so
weak that pieces, may. be easily broken off wilh thc lingers.
They arc much larger than ordinary building bricks, grey in color and
resemble pumice somewhat in structure. . The mortar, which . is pure
white under the exposed surface, is
inucl: stronger, than the bricks. Thc
tradition, that thc bricks were������ dried
in the sun only was confirmed by
laboratory tests. If they had been
dried'in a kiln the appearance of the
wall would have been considerably
different .and ils strength and durability would have been much greater.
The general appearance and alaysis
of thc mortar, indicates that no sand
was'mixed with the lime. -.--.-
Vegetable Drying
Evaporating Process Bids to Become
of Permanent Importance
In the Western Stales a leading
American evaporating company
launched an advertising campaign to
popularize a package of combination
of six soup vegetables, sold at retail
at ten cents. Thc dried vegetables
have met with instant favor, and an
enormous consumption is forecasted.
British Columbia has at New
Westminster what is said lo be the
greatest vegetable drying plant on
the continent. It has a daily capacity
of over 100 tons, and operated day
and night last winter. At other
points in thc Fraser Valley and elsewhere a number of plants wrcre established when war orders were
placed.
In British Columbia there has been
much complaint over prices paid by
evaporators, many producers believing that the concerns took unfair advantage of general market conditions. The outlook was also very
much unsettled last winter when war
orders failed to arrive, and drying
plants shut clown. ��� If thc industry
outstrips war orders and manufactures to satisfy a widespread general
demand, however, early difficulties
are pretty sure to be smoothed out
and a profitable trade created for
growers ycar-in and year-out on a
contract basis. Certain it is that,
the evaporating process bids to become of permanent importance to the
agriculture of this province.���J. T.

Women Spies
Germany Has One   Hundred   Thousand Paid Women Spies in
All Walks of Life
"The German army of peaceful
penetration," the name given to the
thousands of thc kaiser's spies in all
countries and on which ten million
dollars has been spent yearly for a
decade, is composed largely of women. It is probably no exaggeration
to say that Germany alone has one
hundred thousand paid women spies
in all walks of life. Women of refinement and culture lend themselves
to this work as well as servant girls
aud barmaids. Ail know that any information given to Germany will
bring good returns.
Under instructions of the German
spy bureau, hundreds of girls have
been sent into Italy and France to
enter the conservatories of music.
Rome, Naples, Paris and Milan have
had'inorc than their share of these
spies. Germany traded on French
sympathy with Alsace to introduce
Alsatian women into France as
nurses and school teachers. These
women generally were placed in garrison towns.
But the spy net laid by the entente allies has caught many of
these women. One has paid the penally with, her HCe, and dozens owe
their escape from the same fate to
their extreme youth.
It was into this net that Sumcy
Depsy fell. The arrest, in Paris of
this brilliant actress, who had appeared with Bernhardt, created a sensation. Many refused to believe that
she ..was in the pay of Germany. But
evidence had been collected by the
French secret service to prove her
guilt.
_ Through her husband, Emile Guil-
licr, .'who had been employed by a
manufacturer of.'""artificial..' ..limbs,.
Sumcy7 Depsy was able to gain access
to all military and Red Cross hospitals. Again, "wearing the uniform
of an American or a British Red
Cross nurse, she was able to talk
to wounded soldiors in the advanced
dressing stations. From these she
obtained much information' :valuable
to Germany.
For many months she carried on
her espionage 'without-molestation,
and then her frequent trips to Switzerland aroused flic suspicion of the
French-secret service! She was fol-

shc was observed to communicate

Boys on the Farm
Clear Gain for the City Boy to Havo
a Summer of Farm Work
Thc Chicago high school boys who

011 the farms undertook what they
thought to be a patriotic duty and
made good. The Chicago board of
education placed 700 of them and
had unsatisfactory reports of only
three. The work did the boys good
physically and morally. It matured
their ideas of responsibility, strengthened their sense of social responsibility, and quickened their patriotic
impulses. It browned, them anef
built up their bodies, gave them valuable experiences, a great deal of

follow headaches, pains in tho sid<
and back, swollen limbs, palpitation,
a constantly tired feeling, and often
an inclination to fretfulness. These
symptoms are the sign of poor blood,
and are the inevitable penalty ol
overwork and over anxiety in the
care of children arid thc affairs of
the household.
Whenever a mother finds hci
health failing and household duties
becoming more than she can comfortably manage, whenever extra demands are made upon her strength,
she should adopt the safe and simpla
expedient of enriching her blood with
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These pills
arc especially valuable to the nursing
mother and the woman worn out
with household cares. They renew
her blood supply, strengthen her
tired limbs,.and drive away the headaches, ancl backaches that have made
her so miserable. They havc restored thousands of despondent women .
to good health and bright spirits, and
will do for you as much as they have
done for others if you will give them
a fair +rial.
Mrs.. W. F.. Burns, Guelph, Out.,
says: "A few years ago we had three
children born in three years which
left me so run down and nervous that
I was .not'able lo do my work. ,T,he
last baby lived only two weeks and
the worry that added to my weak
condition, shattered my nerves. Our
family"'doctor for several months
tried to build mc up, : but nothing
seemed to benefit me. I suffered
agony with my head, ..nd was terrified with ,\ fear that I would lose my
reason. The headaches from which I
suffered Would leave mc completely
prostrated. During . one of . these
spells 1 went to another doctor, who
advised a change of scene. 1 went
j away for a fc\y weeks but was discontented and wanted to be back
! home, .so., my., husband came .and,
brought me home again. A few days
later my. sister came to sec mc and
asked mc to try Dr. Williams' Pink
E'ills. I got three boxes, and by the
time I had used them all I was completely well, cculd dr< all my own
work without feeling tired, and waa
like.-a; new woman. This, was five
yc.-irs ago, .'.ml since then two.other
children ha-, come, and I am still,
enjoying perfect health." .   .

"Procedure*to'oM&is? Leave--cf Absence.   ' .
Men Nineteen and Twenty Years-of Ago. "':
It has comc to the attention of the Government that there is a widespread
impression that young men of nineteen years, and those who became twenty
since October 13, 1917, as well as these who may become nineteen from time to
time and -who have been or will be culled upon to register under the Military
Service Act, are to be immediately called to the colours.
��� . This impression is quite incorrect. No date has yet been fixed for calling
upon such men to so report for duty, nor has the question been brought^ before
the Cabinet for decision. In view of the need of labour on the farm, it is most
unlikely that consideration will be given to the matter until after the harvest is
over, although .of course the Government's action must be determined primarily
by the military situation.
There is-no'further obligation incumbent upon young men of the ages
above mentioned who have registered or who do so hereafter, until they receive
notice from.the Registrars. v_
Harvest Leave.
Some enquiries have been received as to the possibility of granting harvest
leave to such troops as may be in the country at that time. No definite assurance can be given on'������this point ay advantage must: be taken of ships as they
become available. On the other hand/ harvest leave will be given if at all
possible.
Leave of Absence on Grounds of Extreme Hardship.
It is desired tliat the.-Regulations i expecting leave of absence in cases of hardship should be widely known a: id fully iKideistood. Such leave will be granted
in two cases:-��� (a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of the fact that the
man concerned is either the only son capable of earning a livelihood, of- a father
killed or disabled on servit;^ or prescrJ.ly in service overseas, or in training for
such service, or under treatment after re turning from overseas; or the only
remaining of two or more -brothers capable of earning a livelihood (the other
brother or brothers having been killed or disabled on service, or being presently
in service overseas, cr in training for oveiocas or vinder treatment after his or
their reti.vr. from overseas); .brother.-, -na-n-iecl Ixierc 4th August, 1914, living in
separate c. Lablisiiments and bavin;.?; a child or children not to be counted,
