Canada's Time Of Testing
Canadians havc joyously and enthusiastically celebrated the signing
of the Peace treaty. Canada's .unprecedented army of some hundreds
of thousands of men is all but completely demobilized, and thc vast majority of thc soldiers arc again at
work in civilian occupations. One by
one, all the war time ordcrs-in-coun-
cil. regulations and prohibitions arc
passing away, and the Dominio" is
again rapidly being placed on a Peace
basis. The ucutencss of the sorrows
caused by the war is being assuaged
by that greatest of all healers, timc,
and thc feelings of racial bitterness
and even hatred which" arc aroused
by war arc fading.
Thc titanic struggle is already a
matter of history, but while memory
lasts people will remember the horrors and stress of the past five terrible years, and all future gen'cr;-..sons
will be more or less affected by the
experience through which mankind
was called upon to pass. But while
remembering these things, it is well
that as a people wc should keep even
more vividly in our memories the recollection of thc heights of loyal devotion to country to which people attained, the self-sacrifices they so freely and gladly made, thc patriotic services the3r so splendidly rendered.
During the war thc people of Canada
rose to undreamed of heights of
greatness and achieved a national
splendor of which any people might
well be proud. In a word, Canada
found, its soul���something which in
thc more materialistic days of old
this country seemed to lack.
In the past five trying years Canadians achieved confidence in themselves; thcy learned to do by doing.
Thcy discovered latent native ability
and organizing capacity to do big
things and do them well. In thc
���stress and tumult of war they learned many lessons, not least of which
was the discovery that for well-nigh
fifty years the Canadian people had
busied themselves, and quarrelled,
and divided, over many petty matters
and ideas and animosities of a long
dead pasl. Canadians called their
Dominion a. nation, but it was not,
and never could be while its people
lacked national vision, a national out-
7oot<Trand truly "national aspirations.
Thc country was without a rcal inspiration. Thc war !ul> supplied \\h:.t
Canada formerly lacked, and,.,lacking
it, was weak and almost impotent in
the world.
Are ��� the Canadian people, who
proved themselves so big and i..astcr-
ful in war. going to remain so .in
peace? Is this Dominion which has
risen to a proud place among thc nations going to retain that place,' an 1,
in thc military language of the dai,
consolidate its position: ��� arc wc
going to slip back into "the old narrow-mindedness, which was Canada's
greatest handicap in the, past.'
During " thc war Canadians wcrc
patriots: Evcry man and woman was
ready and proud to renilei national
.service,___Criticism . was stilled, evci'.
though it might be fully justified.
The chronic fauU-findcr found himself decidcdly'unpopular. Our people
pulled together for the common good
and thc triumph of thc common
cause, instead of pulling against one
another! Thc danger is that ih the
relaxation from war effort, and in the
pleasant and less crucial days of
peace, wc fall back into old habits.
Is it too much" to hope and expect
that the newer and,bettcr...patri.otism
born of war will remain with us to
flourish and develop throughout the
gladsome days of peace?
Canadian patriotism stood tlie test
"of war, but thc rcal test of the patriotism, of the people of this Do-
.minion - will comc in thc ycars of
peace lipon which wc havc now cn-
- tcrcd. T\ will be a sterner test, lacking, as it will; the incentive of a great
struggle to win, n. glorious' victory ^ to
achieve, ���_ It will call for infinite pa-
, tience and hard work. Yet, after all,
the prize, to,.be   Avon is    something
finer, better, more lasting than ,> thc
prize  of victorious  war.
The winning of the war, to which
the people of Canada were willing to
bend all their energies, and in thc
accomplishment of which no sacrifice
was too great ., service toi arduous, guaranteed to us and our children their independence and liberties
and "the blessings of Christian civilization.
But thc possession of these priceless things will be of little value to
us unless wc usc thcm as wc ought.
Rather will their possession prove
our own condemnation if wc do not
worthily employ them to make Canada truly great and a benefactor among the nations. Wc enjoy independence to develop our country for
weal or for woe, to create and firmly
establish a nation renowned for reform and advancement, for thc elimination of social ills, for thc splendor
of its education; wc enjoy the widest
liberty to do good, not license to do
With the dawning of this new era
of Peace, Canadians should practice
self-control and continued self-denial.
They should find the same gratification in rendering service to thc nation
now as in thc days of war. Thcy
should be patient and earnest in instituting'reforms, but impatient witli
all wrongs. In a word, Canada needs,
and needs badly, thc war spirit of
the country and its people carried
into all thc activities of the years of

Storms And Dirigibles
A Thunderstorm May Be Too Quick
For a Dirigible
"Thunderstorms in airships should
always bc avoided if possible," says
Lieut. Commander Zachary Lans-
downc in his story of thc voyage of
R-34-across the Atlantic. But apparently a thunderstorm may be loo
quick for a dirigible. Passing down
Fundy Bay "atmospherics became
very bad," General E. M. Maitland
records in his' log, "and a severe
thunderstorm was seen over Canadian const moving south," Major
Scott put his helm up, so to speak,
with the design of fleeing from thc
black wrath to come, in which, however, he was not quite successful. The
fringe of the storm caught the R-34
in its embrace. "We had a very bad
time," says General Maitland; "indeed, it is quite the worst experience
from a weather point of view that
any of us have jet experienced in
thc air." What might have happened
if thc vortex of the storm had whirled the airship about and the jagged
lightnings had struck at her it sends
a chill down the spine to think of.

constantly a supply of rich, rcd'blood
in proportion to the work it docs.
The muscles of the back are under a
heavy strain and have but little rest.
When the blood is thin thcy lack
nourishment, and the result is a sensation of pain in those muscles. Some
People think pain in thc back means

Australian Premier
Is Assaulted
Extraordinary Outbreak Among Returned  Soldiers With
Melbourne.���As the outcome of a
stormy interview between H. S. W.
Lawson, Premier of Victoria, and a
deputation of soldiers in the Premier's office, the Premier was struck
on the head and cut by an inkwell,
thrown by one of the soldiers. The
men then proceeded to pitch the
office furniture into the streets and
tore up important official documents.
The police dispersed thc rioters and
arrested five of thcm. Later a crowd
attempted to rush the watch house
near by and stoned the police, but
was dispersed with several casual .ics.
Thc difficulty had its origin when
a crowd, including returned soldiers
and sailors attempted to rush a military barracks. Shots were fired and
a passing soldier was killed. There
wcrc several arrests made, and afterwards excited meetings of soldiers
were held, at which the police methods   were   denounced.
Representatives of thc soldiers
went to Premier Lawson's office and
demanded release of the men arrest-

Opportunities In
The Sheep Business
Western Canada Offers Ideal Conditions for Sheep Raisers
There never was a better chance
for thc development of the sheep industry than there is in Western Canada today. Mutton and wool arc
both in great demand and will continue so while the livestock shortage
in Europe prevails. This shortage is
not likely to be relieved for many
ycars. In thc meantime the farmer
with a few sheep will bc able to make
good profits, which, if he is a beginner, will go a long way towards
helping him to get firmly established. Farmers who have followed
sheep-raising in many lands before
settling in Western Canada claim

British Wastage of War Is Shown

,Keep The Weeds Down
Constant    Attention    is   the    Only
Weeds will grow where anything
else will grow. If they arc not de
stroyed they will ruin any crop. Survival of the fittest is an inexorable
law of nature, and thc weed, being
propagated by natural methods, has
an immense advantage'in competition
with a cultivated crop.
Constant attention is the only
remedy. Once the crop is sufficiently above ground to be distinguishable,
cultivation of the soil to kill the
weeds should be commenced and
should be continued till the crop is
high enough to crowd the weeds out.
This cultivation is also necessary for
good growth, as it permits the soil
to Tetain moisture during dry weather and leaves the surface in better
condition to absorb rainfall.   '

Big Labor Issue
Loudon.���The labor expert of the
London Times has summarized the
present labor situation in Britain as
Thc labor issues maturing in the
next few weeks are bigger than any
Great Britain has yet had to face.
Thc labor organizations are bigger
than they were before the war. Labor ideas are bigger. On thc one-
hand wc havc organized workers like
a-strong man with determination. On
the other hand thc employers' organizations were never better, consolidated. Left to themselves, a terrific
conflict would be - inevitable k and
would be fought as a war of extermination by each side.
It probably- would end in thc ex-'
liaustion of both sides,-but there is a
third party vitally interested in keep-
-ing peace, namely, the general public, whose trustees arc the government. The question of destructive
industrial war or peaceful industrial
reconstruction will be determined by
the action of thc government. The
present cabinet has not yet shown
anything like a broad, sympathetic,
progressive policy towards labor and
independents are maintaining a forceful attitude towards capital, which
will be needed if disaster.is to bc
Whether thc government will havc
foresight" and courage to do " their
duty is Premier Lloyd George's secret. Thc outcry against the state

question of their democratic - goodwill create a strong suspicion that

ment will fail to satisfy labor.
Labor, therefore, will await eagerly
the foreshadowed reshuffling of thc
cabinet before  taking extreme steps.
The danger in thc present situation is the increasing want of confi-
dcr >mong the workers in the gov-
er. .t, and. in parliament the
majority of thc British trade unionists still retain some trust in the
House of Commons and the ministers, but unless the house and thc
cabinet produce convincing evidence
that thcy intend to give workmen
all thcy can legitimately, respect for
the existing system of government
will inevitably lessen.
If and wheri that happens wc Britishers shall find ourselves staring
into  the  face  of revolution.
Mr. Lloyd George might decide
that the present. House of Commons
is too one-sided to carry out, real
progressive measures. The shrewdest course would be to dissolve parliament and give the working-class
electors a clear field for the elections
anew. *
Of the twenty million British electors, at least fourteen million are
workmen and workmen's wives.
Labor, therefore, if it chooses, can
control thc existing constitutional
machine. This is the surest safeguard against a violent revolutionary
outburst by any largc body of British
Only when balked by the cabinet
and, flouted by - parliament will the
workers attempt drastic action.
Meanwhile, the public must expect

Springfield, Mass.���Eleven members of'the Springfield boys' club
were drowned in Big Pond, East
Otis, when a flatboat and several
canoes in which thcy were being
towed,, were-- tipped over by high
waves. The boys missing are: Fred
Miller, Edward Boucher, Amos Newell, Fred Stevens, Francis Moriarity,
Harry Nash.-Donald Dilizia," Mitchell
Levin, Leonardo - Sanlasicro,v Assistant Camp Leader Walter Scars, and
Earl .Robertson.   - * ��� ^
The boys, who ..were in camp
with 42 other boys on an island,
had been - on the mainland for' athletic sports and were being taken
back for dinner.. About half-way
across, a high wind came up, causing
a wave to partly fill the flatboat with
water. When the launch towing thcm
turned to go back to "the mainland,
other waves quickly filled the boat
ancl it soon sank.
Sonic of the boys held on to thc
boat, but when one'of the youngsters
lost his hold, all of the others on
that sidc of thc boat started to rescue him. This caused thc boat to
turn over and all lost their hold.
The boys who were following in
canoes paddled to the struggling
mass of humanity, and some of this
craft was capsized also, accounting
for other  drownings.
Santasiero, who was one of- four
directors in-the launch,-when-he saw
thc panic among thc boys, jumped
into thc water in an effort at rescue.
Hc was soon pulled down by the
struggling boys and drowned with
thc others. Thc only boy recovered
up to six o'clock was Walter Scars.'
Strikers On Trial
Bulgars Attack
French Regiment
Lively Fusilade Ensued and Three
French Soldiers Were Killed
Geneva.���As the result of an attack
on French soldiers 'by Bulgarians, a
French regiment has arrived at Sofia,
the Bulgarian capital, to disarm thc
local garrison,- according to ~ the Rumanian bureau at Berne.
Thc French contingent, the bureau
states, isj supplied'with-an "equipment
of ra'pid'fire guns to "sustain it" in" its
task of restoring order.
The skirmish occurred as the regiment was landing at Lompalanka, on
the Danube, 22 miles southeast of Vi-
din, a few days ago, according to a
dispatch from~Belgrade. A lively fusilade ensued, lasting three hours.
Three French soldiers were killed.
Will Continue Cattle Embargo
London.���Thc board of agriculture
has decided to continue the prohibition of importation of Canadian steer
catllc, not because such cattle would
not be specially dangerous to British
herds, but because it would be felt
as a menace to the" security of thc
British farmer and check the development of an industry absolutely essential  to  national  prospcrit}'.
Not Hold
Trial In London
London.���It is possible that forme--
Empcror William may not be tried
in London, according to an announcement madc in thc House of Lords
by Earl Curzon, government leader
in the upper house *
The Lords passed the peace treaty
and thc Anglo-French treaty through
all stages. In the course of discussion, Viscount Bryce deprecated
holding the trial of the former German Emperor at London.
Baron Buckmastcr said there were
grave reasons why the government
ought not to pursue any further the
project of trying the German war
lord. It was certainly unfitting, he
declared, to ask an English judge to
sit on such a tribunal to administer
s law hc docs not know by procedure aud has ncyer been defined, in
�� court hc does not control.
In his reply, Earl Curzon said hc
thought the kaiser in exile in no way
^comparable with Charles I. or Napoleon. He was unable to imagine
that a man who ignomino:--'. fled
,his country could be turned into a
martyr or a hero by a trial, while
his continued presence near thc German border -might bc a political
It might be, however, that the trial
would be held r- London. No final
decision has been reached, and the
chances of the trial becoming a spectacular show and disturbing public
opinion and the, daily national life
were important considerations. Even
if the trial were within the sphere
of Britain, it by no means followed
that London would be the place selected.
Hospital Cases  Still Arriving
Portland. ��� Nearly six hundred
wounded Canadian soldiers arrived
here on the hospital ship Essequibo.
Thc number included 33 commissioned officers and four nursing sisters,
and 524 men of other ranks. There
wcrc 55 amputation, 58 cot cases, and
44 tubercular pationes, also one mental case.
It is estimated there are 3,000 more
Canadian-casualties-to pass-through
Portland, and that the service will
continue until October, the Essequibo and the Araguaya making two
more trips each.
Ottawa   in Throes   of Doubt  as to
When War Measures Act
Ottawa.���Parliament will be in session again before the War Measures
Act expires, and with it therace track
betting, prohibition and other wartimeorders-in-council passed under
its provisions. . Such is the understanding here, and was the understanding when parliament prorogued
a fortnight ago. At that timc the
final complete text of thc peace treaty
with Germany had not. been received
in Ottawa, and therefore could not
be submitted to parliament for ratification. Drafts as prepared had
been received and changes made are
cabled from Paris. It was not till thc
arrival in Ottawa of Hon. C. J. Do-
herty, who with Hon. A. L. Sifton
signed the treaty for Canada, that the
text as signed at Versailles was available. The understanding with thc
British government when Sir Robert
Borden left London was that there
would bef no proclamation of peace
by Britain for some time, and at any
Vatc not till thc Canadian parliament
had full opportunity to ratify.
Since then, however, greater necessity has apparently arisen in Great
Britain for an early proclamation
that a state of war no longer exists.
lt is understood that the government
here is in communication with the
imperial authorities on' the subject
and that stress is being laid on thc
necessity for full opportunity being
given to the, Dominion parliament foi
discussion of the treaty's terms before formal proclamation of peace by
thc King. Notice has already been
given of a special session in the fall
for ratification.
While the question has not been
discussed in cabinet as yet, it is probable that the date of opening will be
advanced a week or two to avoid any
unnecessary delay. But that peace
will bc officially proclaimed before
thc Dominion parliament can be summoned'is regarded here as extremely
Thc point raised by Sir A. B.
Aylesworth that the war time orders-
in-council, notwithstanding their
own provisions, will not be operative after expiry of the War Measures Act is generally conceded. A
similar opinion was given by a committee of legal experts in Great
Britain with regard to orders-in-
council passed under the Defence of
thc Realm Act.
It is pointed out that under thc
treaty with Germany peace cannot
be proclaimed until after ratification
by Germany and by three of1 the
principal allied and^associated powers. The principal allied and associated powers are defined in the treaty
as U.S., British Empire, France,
Italy and Japan. - Ratification of the
treaty wilh Germany alone' is not
regarded as being/sufficient to end
the war and thc War Measures Act.
There will be also need to be ratification of peace with Austria. Peace
with Germany would be merely a
partial peace._ But whether ratifications of the peace with Bulgaria and
Turkey first would be necessary in-
so far as thc termination of the War
Measures Act is concerned is regarded, as somewhat doubtful. There is
little likelihood, in actual practice,
of much difference in time between
the proclamation of peace in Great
Britain and its proclamation in Canada by thc governor-general.
U. S. Will Repeal
Winnipeg Strike Leaders Laugh
Evidence Tendered on Conspiracy
Winnipeg.���A secret service whose
ramifications extended even into the
carefully-guarded precincts of the labor temple was named as the source
of evidence of an actual revolution
by Sergt. A. E. Rcamcs,.chief of the
Manitoba Royal Northwest Mounted
Police secret service, at the preliminary trial of eight labor leaders
charged with' seditious conspiracy.
The accused, R. B. Russell, W. M.
Ivens, W. A. Pritchard, R. J. Johns,
Aldermen A. A. Heaps and John
Queen, George Armstrong and R. E.
Bray, maintained thc attitude they
adopted at the first sessions; they
laughed outright at some of thc evidence and continually passed laughing whispers.
"Reports I had from reliable agents
were to the effect that there was a
revolution in the making," Sergt.
Reamcs declared, under cross-examination by E. J. Murray. Hc reiterated quotations from speeches" by
Wm. Ivens and Geo. Armstrong
which- counselled revolution. He said
he believed the speeches were contri-
butary causes to the general strike.
"I was not surprised that the strike
was peaceful at first," hc said.. "It
would have remained so if the'strike
committee'could'have retained "con-
trol-of everything in-the city under
the labor temple' permit system.
Thcy wahted-peace for a purpose."
Evidence of an independent witness, Joseph T.' Hill, who had attended a meeting the day before the first
riot, brought out the fact that Wm.
Ivens had told a large gathering of
ignorant foreigners that their.home's
were in danger of violation by ' the
special police. Mr. Ivens told a story
of a special policeman stealing money
from a striker's wife and children under threat of his baton. When the
special police had been attacked the
next day, the witness had thought it
his duty to report Ivens' speech to
thc police. He said he believed it
was contributory to the riots, and
was "vicious and that ils effect at
that timc would be particularly bad."
He said he had been shocked and
horrified at the thought of a man
having so little sense that he would
make such an inflammatory address
to such an audience.
Lenine Wants Peace

has arrived at Kishineff with an offer
of peace to thc commander of the
Rumanian troops on behalf of Nikolai
Lenine, thc Bolshcviki premier, according to a Berlin government wireless dispatch.
'Lenine offers to cede Bessarabia

of the all-Russian government at
Omsk, from crossing the Rumanian
An armistice to last eight days has
been concluded on thc Bcssaragian
front, and the delegation has gone to
Rumanian headquarters.
I New York.���A Washington dispatch to the'New York World says:
"Immediate repeal of thc Canadian
Reciprocity Act, as approved by
President Taft on July 6, 1911, was
decided upon by thc ways and means
committee. This is thc first tariff
revision definitely agreed to by the
Republicans since regaining control
of congress, and is a step toward the
throwing of a high protective wall
about American products.
"A report was ordered to be made
to the house, and, if possible, the repeal measure will' be rushed through
before thc summer recess, which leaders arc endeavoring to secure, beginning    early in August.
"It may have to bc delayed, as
there is strong sentiment among Republicans, following demands from
certain sections, that the reciprocity
law be nullified."
Stolen Goods Being Returned
Paris.���Figures given in the course
of thc sitting of thc chamber of deputies by thc peace treaty committee
show that offices set up in Wclsba-
den and Brussels to obtain thc return
from Germany of stolen goods, havc
effected the recovery of 255i000 ancl
896,000 tons respectively of material
of all kinds. It was stated, however,
lhat this was but a small proportion
of thc things taken by the Germans.
As an example, it was asserted that
of 950,000 head of cattle carried off,
only 8,000 had been recovered.
Germans Must Surrender Livestock
Paris.���Germany will havc to surrender to France 500 stallions, 3,000
fillies, 90,000 milk cows, 100,000" sheep
and 10,000 goats, according to a report made to the French peace commission sitting under tiie presidency
of Rene Viviani, by M. Dubois, economic expert for the commission, in
commenting on the peace treaty
Two hundred stallions, 5,000 marcs,
5,000 fillies, 50,000 cows and 4,000
heifers were also' to go to Belgium
from Gcrman3'. Thc deliveries are
to be made monthly during a period
of three months until completed.
Coal Famine Threatens London
London.���A decision by the government that not more than 200
pounds of coal may be delivered to a
private residence weekly threatens a
stoppage of coal deliveries in London, except in urgent cases. Coal
dealers says they cannot deliver such
small quantities, as it would take 20
trips to deliver the usual load of two
tons. Much of the tracking in London is dependent on coal.
Victory For Clemenceau
Great.Success of Premier Clemenceau
'    When He Won a Vote of
, ,    , ���   Confidence
- -Paris.���All newspapers, excepting
those distinctly hostile to the government, comment upon the great
success of Premier Clemenceau when
he won a vote of confidence in the
chamber of deputies. Some papers
make the point that the result shows
the vote, in which the government
was in the minority, was not aimed at
the government, but was intended to
obtain a more energetic policy designed to end tlic high cost of living, wJiich, it was declared, threatened to paralyze thc country. The papers express pleasure that Premier
Clemenceau had pledged himself to
consult thc country soon, through
the coming elections.

thc debacle were Hon. Arsenault,
premier; Hon. James. A. McNeill,
commissioner of public works, and
H. F. Murdock Kennedy, without
portfolio, and J. D. Stewart McKinnon, commissioner of agriculture,
was defeated.
This was the most one-sided election since Confederation, with thc
exception of 1911, when the Liberals
won only two seats. When the house
dissolved, the'parties stood: Conservatives, 18; Liberals, 11; and one scat
The Liberals elected are: Bell, Lea,

McLean, McArthur, Crosby Hughes,
Lepage, Brodie D. MacDonald, Nash,
Irving, Higgs, Duffy, D. C. MacDonald, Acorn, Cox, Mcintyre, Johnston,
Dcwar, Sutherland, Butler ..nd Hessian. *
Such a sweeping victory was unexpected by both sides, although the
result of the federal elections, when
four Liberals got a majority of home
votes, afterwards changed by thc soldiers' votes, foreshadowed a Conservative defeat. The returned soldiers
did not lake an active part in the
contest, but it is evident that a majority voted Liberal. Fine weather
brought out a largc vote. There was
a big turnover in Charlottetown, the
Liberals capturing both scats by
largc majorities, labor going with
the opposition.
Dissatisfaction with the administration of tiie piiblic works department, especially the neglect of roads,

The French government has conferred the Mcdaille Militaire, its
highest decoration for an enlisted

Fatal Airplane Accident
Lieut.   W.   R.   Cross   and   Wife   of
Aviator Kerr Instantly
Portage La Prairie.���Lieut. W.-R.
"Buster"" Cross and Mrs. S. P. Kerr
are dead and Lieut. S. P. Kerr, of the
Veteran* Airplane company, of Winnipeg, is in thc Portage general hos---
pital in a precarious condition as the
result of a nose dive made by his
machine about two miles north of
this city. How the accident happened cannot be learned except from
those who saw the ��� machine come
down, and thcy state that the engine
stopped of a sudden, the nose of the
machine turned earthward and it
came down with a crash.
Lieut. Kerr and party arrived here
from Winnipeg with their -machine,
and had arranged to prpeced to the
Brandon exhibition. They made aii
early start, but had some kind of
trouble west of thc city an$ were
forced to land in a plowed field, necessitating assistance in getting out.
Nothing more was heard of them until thcy wcrc observed flying north
of'thc city, heading evidently for the
landing place used during the visit
here exhibition week. They were
flying at an altitude of about 200 feet,
when of a sudden thc engine stopped
and the plane came down on the farm '
of thc Home for Incurables.
It" is surmised that, flying so close
[to thc ground, Lieut. Kerr, who was
running the machine, did not have
time to straighten out before the
crash came. , The nose of the machine crashed into the ground and
drove thc engine in on top of Mrs.
Kerr and Lt. Cross, who. were in the
front scat, and when taken out they
were crushed almost beyond recognition. When the machine struck,
Lieut. Kerr, >who was in the back
seat looking aflcr thc control, bounced out and landed clear of the machine, but hc was unconscious when
picked up, and lushed to the hospital.
Parts of the machine- had to be
lorn away to get thc bodies of Mrs.
Kerr and Lieut. Cross out of the
wreckage, but there was no sign of
life, and they must have been instantly killed.
The machine was what is known
as the L.W.F. war type, 145 horsepower, and has 4S-foot wing span.

Guess where I've ��� been disporting myself this week! By the sad
sea waves, my dear..Tho dear knows
why they should be sad with so much
life and color and gaycly s0 near them.
There was a brilliant gathering at
the hotel; meaning, of course, that I,
have some brilliant clothes gossip for
you. Evening fabrics are just about as.
gorgeous as evening fabrics come. There
are quantities of jet and sequins and
metallic an,} opalescent, things. Es-
pecially. novel, tho, are the silk and ,
metal embroidered tulles in weirdly
lovely Chinese and Japanese designs.
These are not black tulles altogether
that are so decorated. The jades and
the ,i.mberg aud the turquoises of the
jeiinc   lill<>  are  quite  as.  susceptible.

Uisque. . one particularly lovely frock
worn hy a . fairy creature of IS or
thereabouts was of gold-embroidered
atnbet tui Id. tuffeta-basqued, the basque
going, quite a bit below the normal
waist line.
Indeed, there are perfect miles of
embroidery on everything, and more
miles to come. Wonderfully striking is
the relief ernbroidciy that is going on
some very exclusive sports models. I
have In mind an arresting chemise of
while itoroeco crepe with quite a deep
hem treated to bold relief work in black
wooi. With this frork, the owner wore
white \ el vet oxfords with fringed
y^v.^uf-a. And site carried a white
leather  parasol!
Other parasols I saw; exquisite lacy
things with great bunches of colorful
silk fruits upon them, then a violet
silk one with great splashes of embroidery done in navy, blue ribbon,
and a sprinkling of tassels also in
navy. Another delight was fashioned
of black taffeta witix ribbon running
the length, of its ribs an(i ending in
wee tantalizing little bows at the
'���spoke" ends.
Xor is the conceit for combining navy
and .violet limited . to parasols. Indeed, you can't keep luts mid blouses
fiom a thing as fetching as that. One
pei feet little dream of a hat put the
violet into its sashed brim of duvetyn

thf   jersey. >
. Milady who wore tliat citron piece de
resistance wore also the most fascinating little wrap of cition tulle all deep
shingle tucks, and- a great sweeping
collar of ostrhh���citron, too.
One other item of embroidery pews
that I -must, treat you to before I con-
_ Wi'de this ecstatic epistle, is the very
unexpected use of black nnd silver'

- a- little   while   ago   about   th!i��   novel
' posjng   of   white   org.i:idie   over   black
taffeta ana black satin. Rut this later
development is amazingly pretty, let
me tell you.
Logically, after mentioning tlie seashore I might havo mentioned bathing
- suits. Illoglcally, I am going to say a
few words about them now.   If any ono

you, look as If it were an. old atory.
And If they go on to say coat-suit bathing suits with bloomers and the mo3t

discovered one ot your discoveries. But
���    they're top o' the bathing mode, these
things^    aud    wonderfully    fetching.
You lemernber the Dolly Varden patterned chiffons that I told you about
a little while ago? Well, they were
liked so  well,  that  they are being re
peated in handloom designs on georgette
for undies. And let me tell you they are
simply irresistible. Fancy, -will you,
an exquisite pale blue and yellow bouquet motif on a flesh ground, and the
whole posed over ilame color. Which
flame color is repeated in the binding
of the fairy garments and used again
to sash  chemise, nightie and peignoir.
One delightful bit of a chemise in
white safln moire that is the most
appreciably convenient thing I've beheld for a long time is a combination
_of_straIght chemise_and .envelope, _In-_
stead of having its envelope como under tha straight garment, this model
considered it wiser to have lt over
the other. Both are joined at the top
of the yoke only, making it easy for
the under part to do vest duty and
for the supplement to act as corset
cover.   -.-
Oh, yes, and there are some entrancing undies In batik. " My, but the general public is a long time waking to
.the marvelous beauty of this Java
work! Watt, tho, till it beholds tha
lovely things that the wax dyeing can
do to a nightie.
And now what next���next week. I
mean? Heaven only knows, my dear.
But leave it to me to come back wltlt
some nuggets if there are any to b��
had. For the present, theu, au revoir.
Your very own,
ONE may be almost discouraging-
Iy stout, but if wisdom be applied to the choice of one's
clothes, one needn't "look" one's size
at all. .Following are some pointers
for the woman who Is ovcr-slzo and
who  wants to camouflage  the fact.-
When choosing a dress, there are two
things. for the stout woman to bear
in mind. One, is that up-and-down lines
are slenderizing, and the other, that
cross lines tend to emphasize thickness where 'it is and to suggest it
where it isn't.
Especial care should he given to tha
tiimmlng   of  a   garment.  -Decorations
that are grouped in patches give re
Impression of bulk, whereas single rows
and broken line's, particularly vertical
lines, give-length and so suggest increased  slendernesa.
Nor should the trimming ever be of
the boldly contrasting kind, no that
It stands out flagrantly front the garment. Harmonizing embellishment
should be the rule.
The same thing applies to the collar,
tho belt, treatment of r/kirt bottoms,
and tucks, pleats and seams. Xone of
these should be conspicuous enough
to attract the eye before it takes in
the rest of the garment.   Likewise tha
vertical rule applies to  the tucks and
pleats and seams.    ' -
Now, sleeves have as much to do with
a woman's general appearance of slim-
ness or the unbeautiful opposite as
"line" in general. Always they should
cling to the arm rather than flare
away from It. Meaning, of course,
that the material that sleeves are made
of must be soft, as should - the rest
of the successful "stout" dress. Where
the forearm Is large and heavy, a
sleeve that comes just below ' the elbow or at a point a little above the.
wrist is a good choice. But-the long,
sleeve made to lit very close below
the elbow is an invariably safe choice
for the over-plump arm. Another lino '
point In sleeves that does not appear
to be generally known among the "embonpoint" Is the diminishing effect of
a moderately flaring cuff on- a tight
"Whilo on" the subject of sleeves, it
might riot- be amlus to say something
about aleevelessness and fat. ' Never,
never should upper, arms and shoulders obviously fat "be left entirely uncovered when evening'clothes are worn.
There should be some sort of covering, lace, fchifton and tulte answering
the purpose without_ destroying the
decollelage. Also black is preferable
to white for the purpose, since white
has the unhappy effect of accentuating
undue fleshiness. " ,
It is time to center on skirts. Just
at present the mode is especially kind to
the woman -wha would lengthen her
lines. It permits her the fashionable " right to -wear her skirts to her
instep If she cares lo. That extreme
is not, however, necessary; but the
other extreme that goes well above tho
ankle is about as "fattening'' a lino as
can be effected. Of the types of skirt
that are slenderizing are: straight-pleated models, tho long tunic variety and
the straight-paneled skirts. Ruffles,
tiers or trimming of any sort that ia
conspicuously on the cross should bo
Then there are certain types of blouse
as well that can be depended on to
successfully camouflage excess fleshiness. They are the straight-vested
models, those with a decided surplice
- line7_aiKl,- of ^course,- those that-are-
vertical tucked and pleated. An excellent rule for the stout woman to keep
in mlnfl whan choosing blouse or frock
is that trimming kept near the -center
front of the figure tends-to givp the
Impression of slimness. Particularly
ls this true of tho vest;ee. which,
however, must not offer striking contrast lo the .rest of the costume. It
should be of a tone lo correspond with
the dress or blouse that it decorates
or of a filmy creamy or flesh stuff that
"melts" Into tlie neck line.
If you notice, the stouter a woman
grows, usually the less waist line she
has to her credit. Which suggests that"
If the waist line be lengthened artificially,'the general impression will be
decidedly moro flattering. Deep-yoked
skirts, low belt lines and Russian
blouse effects all add inches to tho
waist line that la unbeautifully short.
Empire lines should be absolutely la-
boo, likewise belts that are darker "
than the blouses with which they ar*
Working up to the neck line. Js it
, necessary to repeat tlie wisdom of V
lines for fat necks? That may be
pretty generally known, but from the
wholesale abuse of shoulder cape and
epaulet lines, it does not appear to be
generally known that the shoulders of
the embonpoint must be kept narrow,
ana that by closa armholes or snug
kimono effects and absolutely no broad
Finally, there is lhe material consideration. The stuffs that becoming
"stout" clothes are made ot are soft
in texture and of dull rather than
glossy or brilliant surface. Lustrous
satins are full of light and dark areas
that call attention to the thickness ot
the body they cover. For the sama
reason the darker colors are "thinning"
in their effects, especially blue and

Schools   Belong   to   the   Community

In  a certain     farm community in
eastern  Kansas  recently

doctor was needed.      A    progressive
farmer sent in a call for a doctor���
namely, the 'county agent.     Then hc
hunted up    thc school ditcclor    who
had the key to the district school and
telephoned  round  to     all  the neighbors  that on  Wednesday night next
there would bc an alfalfa meeting at
the  schoolhouse.
When the county agent ai rived hc
found evcry seat filled and almost
evcry square foot of standing room
occupied by a farmer. The agent
talked for 'forty-five minutes and
then questions were fired at him for
an hour and forty-five" minutes.
But this editorial is not about alfalfa or county agents. It is about
country schools in thc summer time.
For one school that is made use of
there arc two or maybe a-dozen that
arc not used at all. Now these schools
belong to the community, not-to some
crusty old fogy of a director. Thcy
wcrc built for use.
During thc war times, with Liberty
loans and Red Cross drives and seed-
corn campaigns, the co��*itry schools
were used more than ever before.
Many a countryside learned for thc
first time how convenient it was to
gather tlicrc instead of going five or
ten miles to town to attend a meeting. So how about ��� planning for
more cross-road school meetings this
summer? Take the wife and the boys
and gills along. Mix in some good
social times for young and old,
along wilh alfalfa meetings and such.
Then old Bill Smith will stop
grumbling at the high school taxes,

will bc kept mowed and the pump in

Thc crop inj in practical economics as the-British
sick and   a  government has given this nation by
the motion in thc house  that it was
raising thc price of coal six shillings
pcr ton.
Thc response has been immediate
and specific and comes fiom almost
every branch of industry in the kingdom���from shipbuilder, shipowners,
railway manufacturers, gas woiks,
and almost all soits of manufacturers
and industries down to laundries and
bakeries. ^They explain just what the
government order will cost their concerns and serve notice also that they
must pass the cost on to lhe buyers"
and consumers.
Great export industries declare that
thc increase in the price of coal will
handicap thcin in their competition/
with other countries and may mean,
in some instances, a stoppage of their
plants and inctcasc in unemployment.
The general public is told how
much thc higher price of coal -will
inflate living expenses. The government apparently meant this to bc an
object lesson as to what would result from lhc prevalent agitation for
higher wages and shorter working
It also seems to bc trying to throw
cold water on tlie campaign for the
nationalisation of industries by trying to show that government management docs not mean that wages
can bc increased and prices can be
decreased indefinitely. Labor has
taken up thc gauntlet immediately,
charging the government with wishing to kill thc plan of nationalization and also declaring lhal the government is favoring capitalists and
misrepresenting conditions by bungling bookkeeping.
During the last stages of the war
the governnipnt' was " running lhe
railroads at a loss, according to a
statement made before the House of
Commons by 'Sir Eric Gcddcs, minister of national service and rccon-
stiuction. This loss is estimated at
��60,000,000 steiling per year.
Tlic deficit in the" coal industry is
estimated at ��46,600,000. The subsidy on bread, that is lhc difference
between the cost of wheat and selling prices, amounts to ��50,000,000.
It is estimated that a ninepenny loaf
would cost a shilling if sold on an
uncontrolled market. Coal is in a
different category, because the government has fixed prices since it
took control of the mines and has
fixed them at a rate to permit the
weakest mines to make a profit.
Thc strongest mines madc large
profits, but eight pcr cent, of these
came back through the, excess profits
The government MioIdiTthal-llie "increase, of six shillings was necessitated by increased wages granted as a
result of thc report of thc commission headed by Sir John Sankey and
the falling off of production. Thc
present condition of the railways and

control with private ownership.

Will Stabilize
Grain Trade
Fixed    Minimum    Price    for    New
Wheat Crop Will Have Good
Effect,  Is  Opinion
That thc intention of the Canadian
government to fix a minimum price
for the 1919-20 wheat crop will havc
the effect of stabilizing the whole
grain market, and will at the same
time give the Canadian farmer confidence that he will receive a fair
price for his wheat, no matter what
conditions may arise before the surplus is exported, was the general opinion expressed by President F. J.
Anderson and several other members
of the Winnipeg Grain Exchange.
It is not known definitely vxt present what the minimum price will bc,
but many believe it will be around
the $2.00 mark. The trade at the
present time is inclined to be bullish,
taking into consideration the demands of Euiope, and believe that
lhc open market will bring prices
considerably higher than  this figure,
Thc only serious difficulty that is
worrying the grain tiade is the matter of transportation across the ocean
and might havc thc effect of lowering
the price greatly if thc Canadian
markets became glutted wilh no outlet for our surplus wheat. In such
an event taking place, thc Dominion
government will bc prepared to step
into the market and take all wheat
offerings at the minimum price as
fixed by themselves, and hold until
such times as tonnage can be secured.
Thc fixed price for wheat in the
United Slates will remain as it is at
present, being based on $2.26 at Chicago. The increase lo $2.30 per
bushel at Galveston and Ncw Or-
leans is only an equalization in
freight differences.
There is little lo fear thai the United Stales government will sell this
wheat at one cent lower lhan can possibly be helped, and will endeavor to
make their loss as small as possible.
This they will bc able to do by giving credit to those countries who arc
unable to paj' cash.
The U.S. government have also
placed an embargo on all wheal and
wheat flour being imporLed into that
country, which will prohibit foreign
wheat from sharing in the high
prices, ancl, will undoubtedly increase
the, difficulties of transporting the
Canadian surplus.
It is thc general opinion that this
question will find a solution, and that
Great Biitain will supply the tonnage
and take any Canadian wheat that
the country may have for export. ���

Rescued From Ypres
Officer  Cut  Pictures   Out  of  Their
> Frames and Took Them
to London
The King of thc Belgians will
shortly have returned to him two famous pictures which were rescued
four years ago from Ypres Cathedral.
Itcappcars that during the bombardment of Ypres in 191o a young artillery officer noticed inside the cathedral, which was being heavily shelled,
that thc only things not shattered by
German fire were two large Flemish
masters, dated 1600, hanging some 20
feet high on the walls. How to get
them and save thcm for Belgium was
thc question which immediately presented itself. Thc-officer' called two
private soldiers lo help him, and with
the aid of some long gas pipes which
had been blown down by the German
fire, and two large hooks .the,pictures
were lowered" to tlie~grbund. The
officer, Lieut. Daniels, R.A., then cut
the pictures out of their frames and
put them in a large sack, which he
used for a time as a bed. In the end
he took them to London,, where, witli
the approval of the Belgian minister,
they hare been placed on exhibition,
prior to being returned to King Albert at Brussels.
Canada's Population
The average density of thc population of the Dominion is 1.93 persons per square mile, calculated upon
the total area of 3,739,665 square
miles. The density per square mile
of the United States is 30.69, that of
the Argentine Republic 5.99, Australia
1.53, New Zealand 9.63, and Newfoundland 1.47. Prince Edward
Island has a density of 42.21, Nova
Scotia of 22.98, New Brunswick 12.61,
Ontario of 9.67, Manitoba of 6.18,
and Quebec of 5.69, The other three

This is occurring all over the province, with a resultant improvement
in the appearance of many streets ia '

The' same thing is already in progress in thc United States. The National Advocate reports that a brewery in Flint, Michigan, has become a

become a' clam cannery; one in Spokane is making vinegar; one in Mobile is making syrup and stock feed
from watermelon; one in Iowa City

one in Seattle is turning rice into syrup; one in Chicago is a hospital, and
another is a soft drink factory; one
in Salem, Ore., is now making loganberry juice; one in Washington, Pa.,
is making paints, oils and varnish;
one in Wheeling is packing meat, and
several others are in the dairy business. Thc huge Anhcuscr-Busr.li
brewing plant in St. Louis, according
to report, is to bc converted soon
into a packing plant establishment;
one in Kansas City is passing into thc
hands of a food products concern.
Many of these establishments now
employ more workers than when in

Filling His
Own Shoes
Copyrighted. Printed by special
arrangement with Thos. Allen,
On returning to his room that evening, Ruggles spent a good half-hour
in serious and steady contemplation
of his favorite portrait of Ruth Downing���a half-page reproduction of a
photograph that he had clipped from
"Town and Country," and which represented that charming girl in thc
act of serving in a tennis tournament.
"I guess she was sort of disappointed in me," mused Rugglcs to
himself. "Shc thinks I'm just an unambitious little mutt that's satisfied
to go on for thc rest of my life dowii
on my knees with a shoe-horn and a
button-hook, fitting shoes. Well, I'll
show her!"
Thereupon he produced some
sheets of the store's official correspondence paper kindly furnished him
by the pretty stenographer (who
cherished secretly a tender sentiment
for the clean-cut young American)
and proceeded to compose an excellent businesslike, letter to the European general manager, stating his
qualifications, recalling thc faithful
ncss, not only of his own service, but
that of his father before him, and
making his official application for the
management of the ncw Vienna retail
store. In this letter, he stated that
he had mastered thc French language
sufficiently for all practical purposes
in six months' time���a pardonable exaggeration���and that having a natu
xal gift for languages, he hoped to be
able to accomplish as much with German, the study of which tongue he
proposed to begin at once.
To this letter Ruggles had no difficulty in persuading Durand, his own
immediate chief, to write a sufficiently commendatory endorsement, Durand had no friend or relative of his
own eligible for the position, and
Rugglcs was the only member of his
own force whom he did not actually
dislike or by whom hc did not feel
himself disliked in return. Consistently with his narrow nature, he was
inclined to resent thc fact that the
-honor of receiving tlfc Downings- had
devolved upon Ruggles and not upon
himself, and showed a disposition to
be disagreeable at not having .been
sent for post-haste on the arrival of
the probable future president of the
company and his sister. But on Rug-
gles's explanation that thcy were
pressed for time, Durand was sufficiently mollified lo write a perfectly-
fair endorsement, reflecting as hc did
so that if at any time in thc immediate future he had occasion to be
displeased with Rugglcs, hc could
always send an unofficial letter stating that subsequent events had led
him to believe that Rugglcs 'was
scarcely thc man to fill the important
position of local manager to thc best
interests-of thc company.
Before the end of the %veek Rugglcs received a courteous reply from
thc European general manager say-
. ing that.his application had been duly
received, approved and forwarded
with the proper endorsement to thc
home office. He was pleased, also,
-to commend Ruggles's ambition, and
trusted that liis years of,faithful service might soon meet with their due
reward, as thc retail stores in Great
Britain, France and Italy had proved
so successful that there was every
prospect of establishing others in
Austria and Switzerland within thc
coming ycar.
Aftcr reading this letter Ruggles's
face shone with such a radiant light
that the customers he waited on were
loath to leave the store, and to one
���    ��� - '" " ���    " '���"��

busy man running in to replace a
broken shoe-lacing he sold two pairs
of shoes, a pair of pumps, a dozen
pairs of socks, two tins of polish, and
a pair of down-east garters. Ruggles' zeal was irresistible. He felt
that his beloved company had proved
its title to good faith with a loyal
employee and the recognition of earnest effort on the part of two generations of the Ruggles family. To
Ruggles, in his exalted state, its precepts seemed almost Biblical. "Well
done, thou good and faithful servant,"
read the message in the letter. "Thou
hast been faithful over a few things;
I will make thee ruler over many
The truth of the matter was that
the Walkeasy Shoe Company of America, like other big industrial enterprises which have reached a high
mark in the world of trade, owed
much of its success to that essential
factor of all successful organizations,
thc faculty of putting the right man
in thc right place. Whether it be thc
administration of church or state, empire or democracy, district or borough, community or family, this fundamental principle of cohesion is necessary to success. All of the world's
great organizers, from St. Peter to
Carnegie (which is a long cry), havc
been endowed with this genius. A
careful selection of bishops with a
talent on thc part of the said bishops
for selecting other foremen, who may
in turn bc able to distinguish the
skilled workman able to weld sculs
or iron, may be productive of tremendous results, always provided
that the material is properly selected.
Then, as though thc star of Ruggles's fortunes was at last to shine
bright and clear through the dissipating mists of mediocrity, there
came a change in the personnel of
the establishment which seemed to
the boy as though ordained by Providence to further his interests, while
at thc same time proving of benefit
to others. Ruggles's principal chum
and particular friend had been a
young man of his own age, a fellow
salesman named Simon Streletski,
who was a French Hebrew with a
decided talent for painting. On Sundays and holidays, Ruggles and Streletski had frequently madc short
tours on their bicycles to different
picturesque points in the environs of
Paris, where, after their picnic lun
cheon under the trees on the bank
of thc Seine, Streletski would make
charming little studies and sketches
for which he was now beginning to
find a good market. Thus encouraged, he resigned his position with the
company to devote himself entirely
to painting, and his place was filled
by a tall, gaunt Viennese, silent and
spectacled, who spoke good French,
Spanish and Italian, besides his native tongue, of course, but whose
English was most indifferent. Learning that his colleague was eager to
perfect himself in this tongue, Rug
gles, who for lack of time and opportunity was making poor progress
with his German, suggested that they
exchange lessons, to which the Austrian, whose namc was Lorenz, readily agreed.
Wherefore, thc two foregathered
as opportunity " offered, whether-in
their own rooms or in rambles
about the city. Herr Lorenz was not
a particularly congenial companion,
being gloomy and saturnine and of
ten critical- to the point of rudeness.
Also, he was of a miserly disposition, and it was invariably Ruggles
who paid thc tram or bus fares, for
thc coffee that they sipped.in front
of some cafe, or for an occasional
text book. Lorenz had a^habit of
setting out with no money in his
pockets. But Rugglcs did not object.
It is doubtful if hc even noticed this
peculiarity oii_ the. part of his fellow
Lorenz, however, proved an excellent teacher, and Ruggles made rapid progress. The conversations of
the two wcrc alternately in English
and German, with French to fall back
upon when cither was at a loss. In
thc course of this association Ruggles
confided to Lorenz his motive for
mastering _ the German tongue as
quickly as possible, at 'which thc Austrian asked a few pertinent questions
in regard, to Ruggles's reasons for
being so sure that he. stood in the
direct line of promotion. On hearing
thc situation explained with thc buoyant optimism characteristic of his
comrade, Lorenz became gloomily
distrait for several minutes. Following this period of distraction, he returned to his English' with increased
application. The next day- he made
himself disliked in' thc store by reason
of certain fawning assiduities directed toward. Durand," who, however,
appeared to accept these attentions
as his natural due, and rendered for
the first timc by one who was sufficiently intelligent to understand the
relative positions between manager
and salesman. Thereafter he patronized Lorenz, but favored him. If
Lorenz sent a, pncumalique to say
that he was laid up with a sore throat
Durand had been lenient in the extreme. When, on thc contrary, Simon
Streletski had got a bad spill on his
bicycle and hurt his knee,. Durand
had,been, as,thc pretty French typewriter (who loathed him with reason), declared: "Tout cc qu'ii y a de
! mediant."
Miss Challand had asked Rugglcs
they were very poor in this world's
goods, for Miss Challand had mentioned their circumstances with the
same indifference' that one might use
in speaking of a spell of bad weather.
But it had been immediately evident
to Ruggles, who had madc a considerable study of human nature ��� as
seen over the top of his shoe-horn���
that his new friends were ladies of
birth and distinction whose poverty
was in no wa;, commensurate with
their breeding and connections. Miss
Challand was the niece of a lord bishop, and Darthea was the orphan
daughter of the late Captain West-
brooke, of the British army.
Ruggles, who liked and respected
them both extremely, wondered if
perhaps he ought not to state frankly his own position in life. Had the
opportunity offered, he might have
done so, with perhaps the information that the company owed its present great success to the mechanical
inventions of his father, but that, owing to this parent's lack of business
ability, he, Rugglcs, had been obliged to begin with a subordinate position and to work his way up. But
as neither lady showed the slightest
curiosity in regard to his personal
affairs���thcy fearing that possibly hc
might bc "in trade" and preferring to
accept him on his obvious merits���
Ruggles held his peace.
For since    his meeting with Ruth
Downing,    ambition    had .seized his
soul, to shake it as the swift current
of thc Marne shakes a reed.

Harmsworth, undcr-secrctary, told

stated: "I believe it to be thc case
that thc German government is endeavoring to enter into trade relations with soviet Russia and that a
German industrial and commercial
mission has visited, or is about to

New York. ��� Officials of thc
Deutsche Bank of Berlin have started negotiations with New York banks
for establishment of credits for the
benefit of German interests here. It
is understood that the Deutsche bank
officials arc not acting for themselves
alone, but arc thc spokesmen for the
German government and the proposed German banking "kartel," which
is being formed. Bankers have been
given to understand that the amount
is considerable, with $30,000,000 to
$50,000,000 for a beginning.
Deny Their Strike at Winnipeg Due
to Sympathy With Soviet
Winnipeg.���Representatives of the
Postal Workers' Union appeared before thc Robson commission and
madc a statement protesting against
the discrimination shown by thc government in not reinstating the workers who had been on strike, and also
putting on the record of the commission an emphatic denial that the postal workers, in declaring for the
sympathetic strike, did so to support
a movement for a soviet form of government in this city, or for any reactionary principles of an unconstitutional nature.
The statement was made by J. A.
Elrick, general secretary of the Postal Workers' Union, who was supported by J. B. Johnson, one of "the
delegates who went to Ottawa, and
W. J. Boyd, a member of the executive of the union.
Ernest Robinson, secretary of the
Trades and Labor Council of Winnipeg, also appeared before the commission and made a statement in
which he condemned the discrimination being shown by employers in
Winnipeg���including the city of Winnipeg���against men wdio had held official positions in the unions before
the strike, and who had been strikers.
The witnesses were cross-examined by C. B. Wilson, K.C., who is assisting Commissioner Robson in taking evidence. None of them, however, were placed under oath.
Watering Farm Horses
Farmers Should Take Water Into the
Walter Moore, a well-known writer, says:
"It is a common thing for farmers
to work their horses in thc hayfield
from- morning- to night, watering
them only at noon. This is done
even on days of excessive heat. The
driver usually has two or more refreshing drinks in the middle of the
morning,'and again in the afternoon;
but the horses, who are equally as
thirsty, go without. This want of
water is not only distressing, but it
causes the horses to drink to excess
at noon and again at night, which often results in colic, and always tends
to produce a distended stomach, or
what farmers call a 'hay belly.' Farmers who would treat their horses
humanely should take water into the
field for them in hot weather."

Veteran Soldier Who Earned Lasting
Remembrance Died Recently
Today the Indian mutiny appears
so distant as almost to be ancient
history. Many of its episodes, however, rank among the more glorious
achievements of thc Britisii army,
and one of thcm was recalled the
other day by the announcement of
the death in Toronto of Luke Alfred
Smith, a veteran soldier who earned
lasting remembrance as one of the
few survivors of the gallant, forlorn
hope that blew up the Cashmere Gate
of Delhi. That city, since the great
Durbar of 1911, held by the present
King, the capital of India, was the
stronghold of the mutineers, and its
reduction became the key to the situation. Invested in June, 1857, by a
small British force, whose numbers
were later increased by reinforcements dispatched from the Punjab,
which had beeu pacified and rendered
friendly by thc efforts of its wise
administrator, John, afterwards Lord
Lawrence, the city held out till September, lis fall was mainly due to
the forlorn hope, composed of Lieutenants Home and Salkeld, Sergeants
Smith and Carmichael.'Corporal Burgess, Bugler Hawthorne and eight
Delhi was strongly fortified by an
immense wall, protected by a deep
ditch, divided by causeways providing
access to the gates. The causew'ays
had been ruined and the walls themselves proved almost impregnable. In
these circumstances the desperate resolution was taken to b!owr up. the
Cashmere gale. Each of the volunteer party carried a bag with twenty-
five pounds of gunpowder, and the
ruined causeway was crossed under
heavy fire. Piling their bags against
the gate, Lieutenant Salkeld was shot
through thc arm and leg while lighting thc fuse* His place was taken
by Burgess, who was shot dead. Car-
michael sprang lo the bags, also to
fall mortally wounded. Smith" then
ran_fojnvard,_but, observing_that_ _the
fuse had been lit, hc had just timc
to spring into thc ditch when the
charge exploded with a tremendous
crash and the massive gate blew up.
Bugler Hawthorne then sounded thc
advance, and thc storming party, after desperate fighting, succeeded in
establishing a hold on the ramparts.
It was a stirring deed that will ever
be featured in thc annals of thc Indian Empire.���St. Thomas Times-
Unusual State Of
Art In Japan
Realizing More Than Half a Million
' Dollars in Gold
Tokio, Japan.���The greatest art
sale of thc year in Nippon took place
recently in this city, when thc treasures of Marquis Ikcda, thc feudal
lord of Inaba Province, wcrc sold at
thc Tokio Fine Art Club, realizing an
enormous sum of 1,050,000 yen���
more .than half a'million American
dollars in gold. The sale consisted
of 560 items, comprising paintings,
lacquer and porcelain wares, armors
and swords, and costumes, and masks
of thc "No" drama.
The most striking feature of this
collection was the glory and splendor of color shown by a dozen suits
of armor and helmets on one hand,
and by over three hundred "No" costumes of rich brocade and exquisite
embroidery on the other. One suggested countless tales of deeds of
valor of the ancient heroes; the other
showed the refined pastimes and accomplishments of Japanese warriors
when not on battlefields, together
showing the life of feudal Nippon.
One suit of armor and helmet, wilh
scarlet silk cords and black lacquer
over leather, decorated with gold and
carved metal work, fetched the largc
sum of 38,900 yen (about $19,500).
Another suit of armor and helmet,
with purple silk cords, profusely decorated with chased copper, was sold
for 12,000 yen.
The collection of "No" costumes of
wonderful brocade and embroidery
fetched an aggregate sum of 91,900
yen. Besides, there were nearly 800
"No" masks which realized about
40,000 yen. Some of these masks
were excellent examples of Japanese
wood carving, expressing sorrow,
joy, anger���nearly " every, human
mood. ""
It may be added here that "No" is
a sort of opera, having been enjoyed
for more than 500 years. While actors in theatres have long been looked down upon as of an inferior profession, "No" has always been held
in national esteem, men of high ranks
often participating in its performance. c

Opportunities In
The Sheep Business
Western Canada Offers Ideal Conditions for Sheep Raisers
There never was a better chance
for the development of the sheep industry than there is in Western Canada today. Mutton and -wool are
both in great demand and will continue so wdiile thc livestock shortage
in Europe prevails. This shortage is
not likely to bc relieved for many
years. In the meantime the farmer
with a few sheep will bc able to make
good profits, which, if he is a beginner, will go a long way towards
helping him to get firmly established. Farmers who ,have followed
sheep-raising in many" lands before
settling in Western Canada claim
they know of no country where sheep
thrive so well as here.

a bruise and prevent the flesh from

magic in it, so speedily_does the injury disappear under treatment.
Worry Is Twin of Fear
Worry is a homeopathic ar attcn-
_ uatcd dose of fear, and fear, as all
know, is a powerful depressant of thc
circulation and nervous system. It is
fear tliat'paralyzes the "animal that'is
"charmed" by a snake; it is fear that
"strikes at the heart" of a "child
frightened by some 'real or fancied
apparition or threat, predisposing to
shock or collapse. It is harmful emotion. There is no doubt that a susceptible individual might be actually
"frightened to death."

all cheerfulness and good will while
keeping half a million of her own
men in foreign lands to finish up

Obtain   Its   Value   From   An
Actual Basis
It appears from a recent interview
that Lenine. the Bolshevist leader, is
very proud ol the depreciation of the
money issued by his government. He
wants it to. depreciate, and the lower
it goes the better; satisfied he is. So
he keeps the presses working overtime, "not in order to fill the coffers
of the. state'with practically worthless paper, but with the deliberate
intention of destroying the value of
the money, as a means of payment."
He doesn't believe in money, you
see, because money suggests the old
"capitalistic system." And so he is
doing his best to discredit it.
Maybe he is succeeding in that purpose, but it is far more likely that he
is merely discrediting Bolshevism.
Rcal money���"honest-to-God money"
as Americans sometimes call it, not
altogether irreverently���is not hurt
by such a process. It is only driven
into hiding and prized the more when
the market is flooded with bogus
currency. Every fake not put out by
Lcnincs printing presses raises the
value of sound money just as every
lie raises the.value of truth.
The trouble, with "fiat money"    is
that it is exactly a lie.    No man, no
government,'nor power on earth, can
make  a  ruble,  a  dollar,  a  franc,  a
pound, by the simple process of call
ing it so.   The United States Trcas
ury could put out a bank note lab
clled "One" Dollar,"  and  no  intelligent citizen would accept it as such
unless it also bore a promise that the
government would exchange gold or
silver for that piece of paper.
To create money the government
would have to create out of nothing
gold or silver, or some other acceptable form of rcal wealth, and it cannot do' that. There have been large
numbers of Americans, more than
once in our history, who wanted thc
government to issue unsecured paper,
but that heresy has passed away. ���

Marshal Foch and the Canadians
A writer in the Canadian Military
Gazette declares he has the following story from a gentleman in whose
word he has absolute confidence:
Shortly after the armistice a private
luncheon was given by a lady in
Paris to a number of her friends, of
whom Marshal Fochflwas one. In thc
course of conversation the lady said:
"Marshal, will you tell us who were
your best soldiers?" He replied,
"Madam, that is a hard question. To
begin with, I- must not speak of my
own poilus. But you have asked, and
I shall answer���Mes enfants cheris
sont lcs^Canadicns"_(my_dear children are the Canadians). Thc point
to note is that Foch was not speaking for publication, but at a private
gathering and amongst his fellow
countrymen only.

Irrigation Is Unprofitable
Rainfall Fanning And Irrigation
Farming Compared
Our modern knowledge teaches
that there is no essential difference
between rian-fall farming and irrigation-farming, except in the manner in
which water is applied to the soil,"
says Widsoe, in Principles of Irrigation Practice. "Every argument
against the permanency of irrigation
farming may be urged against rainfall farming; and every argument for
the permanency of rainfall farming
may be used with equal force on behalf of irrigration farming. The everlasting relationships among soils,
waters and plants are the same over
all the earth. Under irrigation the
great water factor may be controlled,
and thereby greater pQwer for good
or for evil is possessed by the farmer
under the ditch."
In Alberta both rainfall farming
and irrigation farming are successfully practised. The central and northern portions of the province usually have sufficient moisture cvery
year to produce good crops; in parts
of the south the rainfall cannot be relied upon in sufficient quantities every season to grow satisfactory crops,
but where thc natural rainfall may be
supplemented by irrigation profitable
crops can bc and are being raised
every year, for the conditions are

Community Singing
In The West
To   Get   a   Wave   of    Community
Singing Started
Everyone    believes    in community
singing, but there seems to be a com- >
mon uncertainty as to how to get it
started.    Considerable progress    has
been    made in Manitoba,    however.
Community singing    was introduced
at the annual convention of women's
institutes and at the Manitoba farm
congress-last February, and it  ,was
found that a twenty minutes' sing at
the beginning of a session promoted
a general, feeling of friendliness and ?
goodwill.    During June,  twelve  dis- v
trict conventions for the women's in- ?'
stitutcs were held in different parts
of the province, and community, singing was a feature at all of them. The ".
leaders    were usually local    singers.
Song sheets   were provided   by the
extension service of the  department
of agriculture.   Sometimes thc leader
divided the audience into two or three  '
groups and one competed against the
other, to the amusement of everyone;-"
on one occasion a few  of the old-.-"
fashioned   rounds   were    introduced
and were most successful.
It shouldn't be very difficult to get
a wave of community singing started in other provinces, and incidentally to sweep away a lot of undesirable feelings that people simply can't
contain when they open their lungs
and lift their voices and let themselves go with the spirit of the kind
of song that would' have a place in
any well-planned community singing.

We have noticed of late that the

carelessness on the part of some,

Alex stunt.    When the American
National Anthem is played in  the
States, everybody stands  up,  hats
off, and a great wave of enthusiasm

and so let the National Anthem be
played at all our public gatherings;
let those who can sing, sing it witb
heart and   voice  and   those who
can't sing stand to attention, with
head erect proud to belong to such
a great Empire.    It is the duty  of
every loyal British subject to see
that the National Anthem   is   respected when it ia  played  and  if
there be those who do not show a
proper respect   let   them   live in
some other country where they will
be forced   to   honor the national
flag.   In the words of the poet;���
