The qnality of Royal Yeast Cakes
is such that it cannot be improved, so we are imnroving the
package. The change from a
round to a square package will
be made as rapidly as practical.
The quality of the round and
square cakes is guaranteed to be
identical in every respect. Each
of the square cakes are wrapped
separately by machinery, in wax
paper, in such a manner as to
make them practically airtight,
and scientifically hygienic.

Only 12 Per Cent, of Locomotives in
Working Order
Berne. ��� According to ..information
received in Switzerland recently, the
only railway line in Russia on which
traffic is anything like normal is the
one which connects Pctrograd with
Moscow, on whicli express tiains do
the journey of 600 versts in 15 hours.
On the remaining lines, only 12 pcr
cent, of the, number of locomotives
which were miming at thc beginning
of the war arc still in working order.
The i aihvay ^vorks at which locomotives are repaired employ three times
more woikmen than in 1914, while
tlicir productive capacity has dimin
ished tenfold. On the main line from
Moscow to Pctiograd, about 40 per
cent, of the rolling stock is still in
woiking order. On the other lines,
thc percentage of available tolling
stock vaiics from 5 to 15 per cent,
and thc situation becomes worse from
week lo week.

Want Proof They
Started the War
Bcilin. ��� Thc note which Count
von Biockdorff-Rantzau.'hcad of thc
German peace mission at Versailles,
handed to Premier Clemenceau . as
president of thc conference, dealing
with thc question of lcparations and
responsibility for the war, declared
that Germany had obligated herself
to give compensation based on Secretary of Stale Lansing's note of November IS, independently of the question of responsibility for thc war. Thc
,. German delegation, the note set forth,
could not recognize that) from any responsibility of thc former German
government for the origin of the,war,
there could bc .deduced on the pan of
allied and associated powers the right
to claim indemnification for losses
buffered through thc war.
The note declared further that the
peace terms pro\idc no proof of Germany's responsibility for the ivai'aiid
requested thai the reports of all the
allied commissions which investigated
the responsibility for the' war should
bc communicated to thc German delegation.
Another note of thc three handed
in, that dealing with territorial questions, declared that the portion of thc
'treaty dealing with lerriloiial annexations was nol in accordance with
President Wilson's fourteen points.    '
Under the financial and .economic
conditions of thc treaty, it was further set forth, it seemed it would be
impossible for Germany to have
enough gold on hand at- lhc end of
15 ycars lo repurchase' thc Saar val-
,ley mines from France and that if shc
did, .the indemnity commission would
not permit this gold to bc used for
such a purpose.
The note suggested negotiations
with the entente with a view of affecting an ^alternative arrangement lo
meet France's claims by the delivery
of coal from both the Saar and the
Ruhr regions.

To Maintain Order in ^chleswig
Paris.���The council of foreign ministers is considering a plan prepared

New York. ��� The Associated Press

"" That thc allies arc preparing for the

indicated by thc fact that British,
French, United States, Italian ancl
Greek warships, with landing parlies,
have begun a great concentration at
Smyrna. Allied troops arc also being massed at Saloniki.
The concentration at Smyrna is
connected with the mandate given lo
Greece by the peace conference to

in Paris that thc peace negotiations

arc expected to take place .in Constantinople,- Saloniki or sonic other

The Council of Four, composed of
Premiers Lloyd George, Clemenceau, Orlando ancLFicsident Wilson,
considered the question of the imposing of the blockade on Geimany in
case that country declined to sign tlic

discussion at two separate meetings
of the council. On the other hand,
it is anticipated that thc blockade will
bc entirely lifted immediately if the
German delegation affix their signatures to the treaty.
A note on reparations does not

it says, Germany is ready to do willingly. It is added, however, lhat
Germany will not pay reparation for

Action Taken to Make Them Available for Soldier Settlement
Ottawa. ��� Dominion lands held
under homestead entry by aliens and
others whose duties arc in default will
be checked by the" Dominion land
agents and -action taken to make
them available for soldier settlement.
This action is the rcsdlt'of conferences between the department of interior anel soldiei settlement board.
Tt also has been decided to-xbeck up
laud held under the temporary reservations which might now be discontinued.
The soldier settlement board will
take steps ,at once to enlist the cooperation of municipalities in ascertaining from local sources information concerning such lands.
An absorbing    romance    in    aerial
form commences in this week's paper.
More Production To
Solve Labor Unrest
Ottawa.���That there is a .shortage
of food in thc world; that-Canadian
prices    arc    regulated    by    demand
-:abroad; that there is no great surplus of food supply in Canada- that
thc duty of Canada is food production
for ihe benefit of itself and thc world,
that the government may present a
program to regulate thc cost of living, and that industrial unrest can bc
traced to thc cost of living, were
stated in the senate by Hon. G. D.
Robertson, minister of labor.
Hon. Mr. Robertson said tliat there
appeared to be a great deal of misunderstanding in Canada as ind'eated
'by press comment and resolutions
calling for enquiry to reduce tlic cost
of living and charging present high
prices of foGd to hoarding for profit,
Mr. Robertson said the people of
Canada should know there Is no surplus of food in Canadi, and unless
production was increased there "was
little hope for such reduction of food
As lo food in cold storage if at once} within a ycar.
rcali/cd, little would bc done to relieve thc situation. If all lhc butter
in storage on May 1 wore divided it
would give each Canadian 1.7 ounces;
a division of oleomargarine would
give each Canadian less lhan a quarter of a pound. Thc quantity of butter in cold storage was 838,234 pounds;
oleomargarine, 315,764; cheese, 1,-
064,318 pounds; eggs a little over 3,-
000,000, or a third of a dozen per
head: pork two and a half, and beef
three and a half pounds pcr person.
What portion had been sold for overseas consumption hc could not say.
He gave the figure-: to show thc incorrectness of thc idea that thc present
high price of butter, for instance,
was due to there being large quantities in storage held for the benefit of
the owners. This was the season of
egg production when usually they are
collected for storing, but today eggs
wcrc not forthcoming, and' therefore
only small stocks are being laid away,
Uidcss production increased there
was   thc prospect of   an egg famine

Astounding State of Affairs m Ireland
Due to Sinn Fein Proclamation
London. ��� An astounding state of
affairs in Ireland was revealed by the
Lord Chancellor in 'moving the second reading of thc criminal injuries
(Ireland) bill in thc house of commons. Thc bill provides compensation in the case of any officer of the
law who i.s killed or injured while on
duly. In response to a government
proclamation in Tipperary a counter-
proclamation was issued, which declared .that any person in lhc pay of
England,, magistrates, jurors, and the
like, would be deemed lo have forfeited his life
Civilians who gave information to
thc military or police would be executed���"that is to say, shot or hanged." Volunteers were also called upon
to contemplate the possibility of offensive action, more strenuous than
iu the Easter rebellion. Thc men who
wcrc exposed daily lo such risks,
said the Lord Chancellor, should be
protected by thc whole foicc of the
country, and, if thcy became thc victims of assassination, adequate provision must be made for their widows
and families. Lord Crcwc, however,
thought the situation bad been exatr-
gcralcd. Political sympathizers with

London. ��� It is learned that General Barrett's troops occupied Dakka

Shall it be two chillons for the development of tho attractiveness with
the laced overboclice and the revers?
Or, perhaps, you might-prefer putting
the   very   popular    moire    with    the
printed chiffon. Let it be a navy-and-
���whlto schema this time, with the
most of the navy going into the solid-
colored fabric, and the ground of tha
figured part being white. Jlero i
another notable Instance of where
the sell'-decorated fabric can make
for charm, -where plain stuffs, following the same directness of Hn��
might be uninteresting In a summer
dress. To begin with make the boellco
close and rather generously oval of
neck. Also havo it close at the sldo
and finished with revers. Which last,
done in the printed mateiial, Siiggost
that the whole of the bodice-back be
of tho printed material likewise. Now
that will leave the front to the navy
moire,'and after that the yoke and
hem of the'skut. Make the-tall collar of the chiffon, tho, for motives
ol "softness" about the neck.
Ifave you fallen In love wilh a be-
iv itching polka-dot? Maybe you are,
undecided between that and the fascinating: moiies which are returning
so noticeably. Well, why not satisfy
both desires in one frock? T,liere are
two very chic polka-dot ideas for
you on the page, both onlisling tlie
help of a, plain material for the sake
of contrast. The one with the mod-
ishly curtailed sleeve ought to male*
a stunning thing in navy-and-whito
where tlie "ground" ls navy and the
plain stuff the same. There is little
that jou need bo told about the plan
of the frock, except that the contrast
between bodice nnd sleeves is made
more noticeable by joining them with
fagotting or glorified hemstitching,
and that moire used ribbonwise and
looped at the sides is responsible for
the   happy   pannier   simulation.
Let it be a <wh!te-and-blue foulard,
the ground ofNvhl'te and the blue a
china shade, .leaving It to a crisp-
"ttroi'rc taffeta in the same shade to
make the chic, flaring; cuffs, and the
effective, irregular banding of tho
tunic. As for the matter of cut, you ���
will dispatch that on- the most direct
and most tailored of lines. There'13
no draping to bother aliout���just fit.
And now, do you think you_ find a-
printed creation to your type?

Milk Goats
By Alex.   T.    Macintosh,   President
Manitoba Milk Goat
Since the dawn of hisloiy the milk
goat has been a constant friend and
companion of mankind, and has been
one of the greatest assets to -the
human race supplying much nutritious
milk for infants and adults, >ielding
its savory flesh for food, and pioviding the material foi garments 01
rugs as thcy were requued There is
no doubt that the goal was domesticated al a much eailici period lhan
catllc, picsiunably because thcy were
smallci, and milder in their disposition. -As. an efficient converter oi
weeds, brush, and the various grasses
into nulrilous food material, thc goat
has no superior among the domesticated animals of today,,and when it
is lcmcnibcrcd lhat a good milk goal
will yield nearly iwcnly times her
own weight in milk in one year, it
will bc realized how valuable an asset she is to thc world of today.
In eastern lands ancl in thc continent of Euiope, thc milk goat is an
established fact, and probably her
absence would be felt more keenly
than anv othci animal. On thc Noi tli
American continent she is rnpidl}
coming into hci own, making a place
foi hei self that in a shoit time would
indicate thai shc ivould hc second to
none. Pei haps the goat has been
maligned more, than any othei single
annual on the Notlh American continent, it has been .the butt of thc vulgar crovvd,_ancLe-l'cn today thcic aic
prejudices, against her that prevent
the public fiom taking thc intelligent
intcicst in this little animal tliat thej
should. She has been designated the
poor man's cow because she was
cheap to buy and because shc convened cheap giadcs of feed into food
of the highest nutritive -value.
The demand for milk goats on thc
Noilh American continent at thc
picsent time has caused a change in
this title, and no longer is she known
as thc poor man's cow, some even
suggesting lhat she has become thc
rich man's hobby, but lo the author
it would be moic concct to call her
the sane man's cow. No family can
have a bcttci asset than a good milk
goat. The avciagc milk goat will provide in the neighborhood of three
quails of thc richest kind of milk per
day. This milk is more like human
milk than lhal of any othci animal.
It is more easily digested than cows
milk and many pcisons who cannot
digest cow's milk ,can icadily digest
the milk of thc goat. This is on account of the fat globules in goat's
milk being so^ smAll, in fact, goat's
milk is three times moic easily digested lhan cow's milk. Again, goats
are practicaly immune fiom tuberculosis. In pi oof of this 800,000 carcasses havc been carefully inspected
in Fiance and the United States of
America, and not a single carcass has
been found to bc effected in any
small degree. Thc analyst to the
Royal Agricultural Sociejy of London, England, gives -the following
judgment: That the cicam globules in
goal's milk aie smaller than in cow's
milk, and as the milk is more concentrated than cow's milk, the cream
globules aie contained in a more perfect state of emulsion than cow's
milk; in consequence of which hardly
genburg, and the Saasen. The Angfor
Nubian originated in the east and i��
well known 111 Asia and Africa, while
thc Toggenburg and the Saanen have
been developed in SvviUcilaneJ. The
\11b1an is the^largcst of thc tailk
goats It provides richer milk than
the others. Professo*? Washburn, in
lii*^ recent book, "Productive Dairying," says. It is a good goat of any
breed that will average two and one-
half quarts of milk a day foi eight
or nine months of the yeai One that
will give more tlnjn this is specially
desnable 1 he Angora goat, which
is.jiot considcied a good milk animal,
gives fiom two to three quarts of'
very rich milk bul for a comparatively short time. Thc Nubian, or African goat, produces fiom five to ten*,
quarts per day. Thc yield oftlic best
goals of Switzerland averages about
four quarts daily.
Thc Island of Malta has also become famous as the developer of a
breed of*goals known as lhc Maltese,
and theic arc other biceds pccuhai to
ccitain localities 01 countries in Etu-
ope, butjhc breeds that aie best
known in this country aic thc Nubian, Toggcnbuig and Saanen. As a
companion for childicn, ad as a
means of education, no animal is of
gi cater value than a milk goal, and
lhc writer is of opinion that if in this
country milk goats wcic more common, and thcicforc theii milk more
geneially used, that thc infantile mortality would bc gically decreased. Thc
Manitoba Milk Goat Association are
at thc present time taking a census
of all those who clcsiic lo get milk
goals.. The sccictary of this organization is T. R. Young, 290 Garry
St, Winnipeg,"and those interested in
thc development of the Manitoba goat
industry of this province are asked to
get in touch with Mr. Y'oung.

The piercing notes of thc porcelain-

yawned, and ran his fingers ' through

skin shoes lacing from the toes. Fully equipped, hc had thc appearance
of an English or American undergraduate off for a continental holiday. Hc spoke , good colloquial
French, which added to thc impression that he was a young fellow who
enjoyed educational advantages.
Three or four hours later found
Rugglcs pedalling blithely along thc
towpath of the pretty Maine. Thc
day was perfect. Thc forested hillsides glowed with the delicate purple
of mounting sap beneath a billowy,
greenish cloud of tender infant foliage, while the lush pastures were
smeared with thc golden yellow of
primrose, wild mustard, ancl dandelion. Thc soft air was sweet with
Mother Nature's baby perfume.
Riding cheerily on, Rugglcs lent his

his surroundings.

push. Shc started off, wabbling dangerously close to thc edge of the

straightened her course. As Rugglcs
turned, hc saw a shock head thrusting
itself above the rim of sward, and
without pausing to reflect that he
might bc destroying a . masterpiece,
he grabbed up thc easel, canvas and
all, and smote. Thc head disappeared,
with another splash from below. Rugglcs seized the paint box and, forsaking the easel, which was merely a
flimsy five-franc affair, took to his

The Lord commanded Jonah to go
to Nineveh; a great and wicked city,
and there: "preach the preaching" that
he bade him. Jonah's runaway experience (see chapters 1, 2)was such
that hc was willing to obey God. His
chastisement was severe, but by God's
grace hc was now ready to execute
the commission. "Jonah arose ancl
went unto Nineveh, according to the
word of the Lord"( v. 3). -So..grcal
was the city of Nineveh that it required three days to compass it; that
is, to visit its very centres of activity.

Exploring for Gil
In Great Britain
If It Exists It Must Be Obtained for
Home Consumption
Loudon. ��� Thc government has decided to explore.Great Britain for oil.
There is apparently no reason why
British battleships should not be
steaming on oil fuel got from beneath
the country's own soil, nor is there
any reason why some of thc motor
cars should not be driven by petrol
obtained from under the roads thcy
run upon. In the past Great Britain
has been too careless of the wealth
that lies'under her. feet. Petrol,
lamp oil, fuel oil from overseas were
sold so cheaply that no one was pro-
parcel to risk money in drilling for.
oil in England. But the war has
changed the entire, position; and petroleum lias become so precious that,
if it exists in-England,, it must be
searched for and obtained.
That it docs so exist has been proved on. many occasions during the last
century or two. At Clownc, near
Chesterfield, -there vvas a flow of 700
lo 1,000 gallons daily. Whilst a flow
at Coalport, mentioned in 1S36 by Dr.
Prcstwich, is staled to havc formerly

proclaiming a fast and pulling on
sack-cloth (vv. 5-7). These marks of
humiliation were shown by all, from
thc king on his throne to lhe most
humble man. (2) Cried mightily to
God (v. 8). In thc midst of lhcir
humiliation thcy cried with intensity
to God. (3) Turned from their evil
ways  (v. 8)
ence is-turning from sin; itjs haling
sin badly enough Fo-rquit it.
4. Accepted by God (v. 10). ' "When
the Nincvitcs turned from their evils
God refrained from executing doom
upon them. It averted judgment. God
is unchangeable Mis holy nature is
unalterably opposed to sin. When
men repent from their sins his wrath
is 'turned aside This is what is
meant by God repenting.
2. Thc Necessity of Repentance
(Luke 13: 1-5).
Repentance is necessary on the part
of all, since all arc sinners. "Thc
wages of sin is death" (Rom. 6:23).
While God is unalterably opposed to
sin he is infinitely gracious. His holy
nature compels Liiu lo cause judgment to fall upon those who will not
turn.from their sins to serve liim. Repentance is nol merely a matter of
privilege, but of absolute necessity if
one would escape the wrath of God.
Repentance- is thc only door of escape
fiom perdition. It is not a question of
how great a sinner one is that determines thc need for repentance,
since God cannot look upon evil: "F'or
tliou art of purer eyes than "to behold evil, and cans>T' not look upon
iniquity." (Hab. 1-13). No one can
ever sec him in peace unless he turns
from  his  sins.    Goel  commands   men

Japanese Imperialism Has Attempted

As lhc facts concerning thc true

Japan ia seeking to maintain her
hold on thc peninsula iu a liuly
Japcnesc fashion. In spite of all official statements to the contrary, reports from many different quarters
are gradually establishing the fact
lhat thc Japanese authorities in Korea arc putting down the independence movement with a ruthlcssucss
all too reminiscent of thc Prussian
method in Europe ancl elsewhere-Indeed, as time goes on, it becomes ap-
paicnt that the Korean tragedy, for

Since lhe <urival of Sir Robert
Borden and his colleagues six months
ago, the overseas dominions have attained an entirely ncw stains. Their
position as self-governing nations
within the gieat commonwealth has
been internationally lccognizcd, first
iu theii admission lo the peace confciencc, and in the decision that thc
treaty should be signed on behalf of
His Majesty by rcpiescntlivcs of
each of the great dominions Canada
has undoubtedly led in thc effort to
wm this position, which cfloit has
been piolongcd, insistent and continuous It began in Loudon befoic
lhc auival of lhc French and Italian
picnucis in December hist It has
continued during the subsequent conferences both in London and at Paiis.
In the vaiious commissions and committees, Canadian ministers have
taken thcit places as lcprcsentativcs
of the whole ciupitc. Lattcily thc
status of thc dominions in relation to
thc council of the league of nations
and lhe governing body of the labor
convention has been under consideration, and, as a lcsult of thc stiong
stand taken by Caadia i ministers, the
position has been made both satisfactory and secuic. Canada has good
icason to bc congiatulatcd upon thc
place thus accorded her, and il is well
that her people should icalue that
this place has been won byjhc ability,
integrity aud determination of her
Damage Done

Paris. ��� In view of the conflicting
reports which have fiom time to time
been published with regard lo thc
damage done lo Rheims cathedral by
the German bombardment, the following statement has been icccived
fiom an authoritative souice:
lhc western facade and porlal arc
severely battcicd, the greater numbei of thc pinnacles of the southern
front have been shot away, thc loof
has several gaping holes in it, the
high altai is a formless mass of debris, and thc choir, as such, has ceased to CMst. Some of the glass has
been preserved, but most has been totally destroyed. All that really remains arc thc coie of the fabiic���
piobably considciably shaken and
weakened���and thc lemaikable scries
of statues within lhc west wall.
Nothing in the way"of restoration
has yet been begun, and the public
aic shown the church by a guaidian
who tells thcm lhat it will lake a genet ation lo repair it. It is hard lo
conceive any better reminder of the
German lhan the pathetic sight of
this monument of Gothic aie which

Found something good about
country papers the other day. It
vvas from' a' pamphlet entitled,
"Human Interest Stories,", issued
by the Equitable Life Insurance
Co\ Our old friend Walt MaBon,
editor of the Emporia Gazette,
penned the paragraphs, and here
they are:
"Our little country papers seem
drab and miserably provincial to
strangers, yet we who read them,
read in their lines the sweet ultimate storv of life. " When the girl at
the glove counter marries the boy
ih the wholesale house the news of
their wedding is good for a. forty
line wedding notice and the forty
lines in the country paper gives
them self respect. When in due
course we know that their baby is
a twelve pounder named Grover.
or Theodore, or Woodrow, we
have that neighborly feeling that
breeds the real democracy. When
vveread of death in that home, we
can mourn with those that mourn.
When we see them moving upward in the world, onto a farm and
out toward the country club neighborhood, we can rejoice with those
that rejoice.
"Therefore, men and brethern,
when you are riding through this
vale of tears on the California
Limited, and by choice pick up the
little country- newspaper with its
meagre telegraph service; when
you see its array of countryside
news, its interminable local stories;
Jits tiresome editorials on the
waterworks, the schools,, the street-
railroad, the crops and the city
printing, don't throw down that
contemptible rag with the verdict
that there is nothing in it. But
know this, and know it well: If
you could only take the clay from
your eyes and read the little paper
as it is written, you, would find all
of God's beautiful sorrowing,
struggling, aspiring world in it,
and. what you saw would make yon
touch the little paper"with reverent hands."-..
Ashcroft Journal has ,.in-
a new press and its subscribers are happy. None of them
know how or where he got the'new

These days a town without a
newspaper soon slides out of public

If there is a disease more than
any other that is caused by improper diet, and that can be helped
most oftien by a diet properly adjusted to the capacity of the
patient, it is rheumatism, in almost
every one of its forms.
There is a popular belief that
meat, especially red meat; is the
only archfiend that carries into the
system uric acid. and the other
members of the purin group, but it
is not coirect. Tea, coffefe, chocolate, cocoa, peas beane, asparagus,
onions and a few other foods all
contain the purin bodies to some
extent. Animal soups and malt
liquors are also guilty.
All alcoholic liquors are objectionable, some,; of course, more
than others. By many the white
meat of chicken or fowl is considered much less pernicious than
red meat, .such as beef, mutton,
lamb, etc. ;by others . this. is contradicted. Excellent authorities,
however, state that: whatever may
be true theoretically the so-called
red-meats seem moat objectionable
practically.. .
Increasing the easily digested
animal foods, allowing milk, eggs,
a small amount of cheese,., broiled
or roasted meats, beef, lamb and
chicken in small quantities , once a
day often bring a happy result.
Combine with these farinaceous
foods, such as rice, farina, tapioca,
wheafe bread,, etc., and -suitable
vegetables and/fruits. Such procedure may give just the relief the
overworked machinery is < craving.
During acute attaebs of rheumatism the diet should consist of milk,
battermilk, milk toast, grnele, etc.
This Bhould continue so long as
there is any fever. All meats and
other . objectionable; articles mentioned above, should be excluded
until recovery is;'assured. -Alkaline, waters are valuable,.-, and excellent1 results follow the use of
generous quantities (at least three
pints.daily) of any. pure soft water
taken /bet ween meals.   .
NOTICE is hereby given that the first
sitting of the Court of Revision, for the
