Restrictions on
Anthracite Coal
Fuel   Administrator  Has    Right    to
Prohibit or Limit Use of Fuel
in Any Building
Regulations to facilitate thc equitable distribution of anthracite coal
in each community in Canada have
just been approved by order in council, at thc instance of C. A. Magrath,
fuel controller.
These regulations arc devised to
prevent disproportionate deliveries
of anthracite to large consumers at
tithes when thc. ordinary householder
cannot be supplied. The fuel administrator is given the right to prohibit
entirely or to limit _ in any
manner, he may deem advisable, the
use of anthracite coal in any building. This docs not apply to private
residences using less than forty tons
of coal annually.
Whenever tlic fuel administrator
decides that it is in thc public interest at certain points to give effect
to thc regulation above outlined, he
will issue a formal order thiough the
local fuel comniisoio .cr of any city
Or town within his province. In the
absence of such official, the administrator may . c'ify a:iy consumer to
thc samo effect.
Heavy penalties arc enacted for

Bank View of Crops
Returns  are  Satisfactory in  Quality
and Yield
Thc Monthly Commercial Letter
of thc Canadian Bank of Commerce,
in its summary of the business in
Canada, thus sets out thc conditions
of crops and agriculture generally:
"lt is difficult to arrive at a definite
conclusion as to the actual volume
of the crop. It is now apparent,
however, that it will considerably exceed thc estimates formed during the
bad weather of July and the early
part of August, as is shown by the
demand for farm help in practically
every part of thc Dominion, and by
the renewal of orders for general
merchandise and for articles that
cannot bc ranked as necessaries
which had been cancelled owing to
the anticipated failure of the crops.
The keenest demand- exists in the
wheat-districts of the prairies. Considering thc weather conditions which
have prevailed, thc returns arc satisfactory in botli quality and yield.
Thc rains materially improved the
outlook for fodder and root crops.
Manitoba, British Columbia and Ncw
Brunswick will all have a largc surplus of potatoes. Fodder, corn and
roots in Ontario, and pasturage in
the southern districts of the western
pral ics, have recovered substantially
from the unfavorable weather conditions1 during July, and thc selling ot
unfinished stock .will thus bc checked. At Qjlgary thc volume of cattle
marketed ,at the close of August
was- three times greater than in the
previous ycar, yet no serious recession iu prices took place. Where feed
is plentiful thc number ,of livestock
being marketed is cither normal or,
because of increased production,
slightly greater than a _ ycar ago.
When three-year-old steers fresh
from lhc prairie pastures bring $170
each, as they did in Lloydminstcr,
Sask., late in August, there can be
little doubt as to the future of the
cattle industry on thc prairies. One
railway system carried -1,363 cars
cattle in 1917 as compared wilh 7,
245 in 1916, an increase of 57 pcr
cent, while the increase in western
dairy produce shipped was 15 pcr

there wcrc at one timc a good many
refugees, Joeing cared for by a groin)
of American Ked Cross workers, who
were especially anxious that the suffering, underfed, exhausted children
should be supplied with milk. Milk
was very hard to obtain, for there
were almost no cattle left; but one of
the workers heard of a good cow
owned by an aged peasant and his
wife, and went to interview theui.
The conversation took place beside
their well ��� situated none too far
from the barnyard, and placarded
with a hastily scribbled sign: This

When the Red Cross worker asked
the old man to set a price upon thc
precious milk, he replied, with a
shrug and a smile:
_ "Nothing, monsieu ��� for thc sick

ask monsieu to promise not to boil

In more primitive villages than
those of France, in Oriental countries, simple precautions are perverted almost as wildly, in entire
simplicity and dead earnest, as thc
ironic suggestion of the old Frenchman. Who could say that those
Malays might not actually try to boil
a cow, who, in time of cholera, bid ���
den to_ drink boiled water, attempted
to drink boiling water���and killed
several unfortunates before t!:<; physicians set them right?

A War of Words
Soldiers    Have ��Appropriated   Many
Words From the French
Dr. Frank H. Vizetelly, lexicographer of New York, declares the
effect of the.war on the English vocabulary has been material: He says

the great highroads of thc
peninsula converge, and it is at Nish
that the line for Salonika branches
oil from the main railway between
Belgrade and Constantinople. Before the war it was the custom of
thc king and his court to spend
three months of thc ycar at the little city on the banks of the Nishava,
and it. was to Nish that the Serbian
government retired when Belgrade
had been finally occupied in the autumn of 1915.
Like so many other towns in the
Balkans, Nish is a place of very
great antiquity. It was mentioned as
an important place by Ptolemy of
Alexandria, and it was . under thc
walls of Nish, the Naissus of thc
Romans, in thc year A.D. .269, that
the great battle was fought in which
the limpcror Claudius destroyed thc
army of thc Goths. Some two hundred years later came the invasion
of thcv..Huns, and in the centuries
that followed Nish shared to "thc full
in all the warfare which swept back
and forth over the Balkans, until that
final silence created by the Ottoman
Aood in the fifteenth century.
It was in 1375 that the Turks first
captured. Nish from the Serbians. In
1443 the allied armies of the Hungarians under "Hunya.dy and the Serbians under George Brankovich retook it, but 12 years later, it came
under the Turkish dominion again
and remained for more than 300
years, one of the most important
Turkish military stations on the road
between Hungary and 'Constantinople. ' _.
Once a Turkish possession, Nish,
like thc surrounding country, experienced thc full brunt of the well-nigh
perennial state of war which existed
between Turkey and Austria. It
changed hands twice, but the Austrians  could never, hold  "'   '
pill box, Blighty, blimp, camouflage,
cootie, grouser, poilu, slacker and
"Poilu is being commonly misused
for a French soldier instead of for
one who has seen service in the
trenches. The popular name for the
French soldier is pioupiou.
"From a rough approximation I
judge that we have derived from all
branches of the service -during the
war several thousand words, five or
six�� perhaps, which will have to bc
inserted in new dictionaries, exclusive of the personal and geographical names that have come into
prominence during' the military operations."

Must Play the Game,
: Gem Sir-William. Robertson, _after
inspecting the boys of an army training school in London not long ago,
gave them some sound advice on
good conduct, in the course of which
he urged them to do their work well.
There were no little things in life,
he said, and if a thing was worth
doing at all it was worth doing well.
Not only must thcy create the habit
of working in. the right way, but they
must 1 arn to be punctual, as nothing
was so displeasing as keeping1 baa
time. They should also learn to play
the game, which meant that they
must not always be thinking of themselves, but of others. They must
learn to submit to discipline. It was
just as easy to form a good habit as
it was to form a bad habit, and it
was just as difficult to break a good
habit as it was to break a bad one.

Ancient Brick Making
Art First Known in tho   District of

American Paper Draws Attention to
Help Rendered by British
Most Americans have had an idea
that the United States had reached a
point in naval .onstruction where, if
tt could not furnish most of the
transports to carry its soldiers overseas, at least it could provide the destroyers to convoy thc transports. Of-
��?&1 figures disclose how erroneous
this opinion is.
��� Last inonth America furnished the
ships���including- the German liners���
for about 40 pcr cent, of the troops
transported, while of the convoying
so far done, 70 per centos credited
to Britisii vessels.
It is worth while to bear these figures in mind for two-reasons. In the
first place, thcy will help us undcr-
. stand the magnitude of Britain's
help to us in getting our men to
France, and in the second place, they
will emphasize thc need of maritime
preparedness. Wc- have now been at
war for a ycar and a half.    In that
-   time we have been feverishly building merchant - cssels and destroyers,
with all our enormous energy.   And
" yet thc bulk of thc work at sea still
falls on our great ally.
A nation simply cannot prepare for
war after war comes, unless it has

The Cafeteria
System for Hogs
Takes Away Much of the Drudgery
and Is Better for the Porkers
Much of thc drudgery is taken out
of hog feeding by the use ' of lhc
self-feeder.    According  to  inyestiga-
���vtions carried on at "the Experimental
Farm at Ottawa, hogs, after they
havc reached a certain age, do better
when fed in this way provided lhe
proper mixtures are used. Strange to
say, v. hen prope.ly handled, dangerous and wasteful overfeeding is not
���o likely to occur with .lie self-feeder as when meals are giver, al stated
hours. It ' as been shown that th^
hogs are thc best judges of when
they should take food. Thc feeder
is fully described in Special Circulni
No. 15 obtainable at thc office of lhe
PuLlications Branch of thc    Dcpart-

Wasted Food and Leather
United States Fisheries   Bureau   Is
- Indignant
One hundred and fifty "blackfish"
(or about that number) ran ashore
and wcrc stranded on thc beacn ol
1\ an tucket island recently. _
This becomes more interesting
when it is understood that blackiish
arc not hslies at all, out small whales
from fifteen to forty feet long and
weighing trom one to tnrcc tons
Thcy were driven up on the beach
by hshcrnion and allowed to die
tncre���just for sport. No use was
madc ot thcm. 'llie huge carcasses
simply rotted and poisoned thc air.
lhc meat of these whales was
worth in the market twenty-hve
cents a pound. Their hides, for leather, were worth eight cents a pound.
The oil derivable irom their jaws (the
finest known for certain lubricating
purposes)   was  worth $8 a  gallon.
This is "conservation" Massachusetts style. Naturally the United
States hsherics bureau is indignant.
So likewise the food administration.
But what can thcy do about it?
In 1879 1,500 blackfish ran ashore
at Provincctown, near thc tip of Cape
Cod. They all went to waste. Nobody had the gumption to turn them
to any useful account.
Thc blackfish is a silly mammal.
If one of a herd happens to run
ashore, the others will follow it.
Two or three men in a boat, getting
outside of a bunch of them and
banging on tin pails and shouting,
can so frighten thcm that they, will
all rush for thc beach and become
hopelessly stranded.

Jewels are by some people condemned as "baubles" and jewellers as
"parasites of thc rich," but some interesting details of the war work on

"In thc early stages the government were hard pressed for mechanics who could quickly adapt themselves to a particular and important
branch of engineering gauge making,
in which accuracy to 10,000th part of

"Of all the workmen tried, jewellers
proved themselves thc quickest and
most skilful, and the government appeal to thcm met with a splendid response, a fact which should make the
public not grudge the little gold that
is allowed the trade to support the
few remaining elder men who have
taught thc younger ones thc skill

"Apart from such operations as

To Help Production
The Contractor Idea as Applied   to
Farming Is a Good One
iJany a club or business men's
committee in the towns and cities of
Canada could aid greater war-time
production on the farms if they would
adopt the "tractor and contractor"
idea, which has .been installed in
*' 'litrcal and adopted in Chatham,
The contractor idea as applied to
farming is simply this: A club of
business men in a town form a little
company, with a capital of perhaps
$10,000. They buy a tractor at a cost
of about $1,000, and undertake to
plow idle land or re alar land on a
contract. They employ a practical
man as their contractor, a man who
has bt n used to handling labor and
getting things done. The war has
altered the activities of many such
men. Railway contracting, bridge
building and such work has been
greatly limited by reason of the demands of .he war upon capital, upon
labor and upon other energies of the
In Montreal, Mr. J. P. Anglin, the
well known engineer and building
contractor, has undertaken a big contract to plow idle acreage near Montreal, and a syndicate of business men
has been formed to do similar work
in -"ent county, Ont. These examples might well .be followed
throughout Canada.

Importance of
Live Stock Industry
Encouragement Given by the Various
Governments to Farmers
Western Canada is one of thc few
countries which at the present timc
is not only maintaining the numbers
of its live stock, but is also gradually
increasing them year by year. This
is largely due to the excellent conditions suitable^ to the raising of all
kinds of live stock prevailing
throughout the country���conditions
which enable the business of live
stock raising to be carried on more
profitably than it can be done in
many countries which have been
much longer settled. That the live
stock industry in Western Canada
will continue to grow is manifest
With such natural conditions as prevail in Western Canada and with
the encouragement given by the various governments to farmers to engage in the industry, it could not do
other than grow.
-Through the-effort3-of lite-provincial governments, hundreds of farmers have been able either to increase
their herds, or to make a beginning
with live stock sooner than they otherwise would. During thc past year
thc Saskatchewan government has
been particularly active in this respect, but thc Alberta and Manitoba
governments have not lagged far be-
hind.^ In thc northern parts of the
provinces, especially, thc live stock
industry is receiving a tremendous
impetus on account of thc abundance
of feed available.
The Manitoba government has distributed hundreds of cattle and sheep
this ycar in the northerly part of th��
province among fanners who are
able to maintain more live stock
than their ready cash would ^ buy.
The Saskatchewan government is doing thc same. During thc week just
past a trainload of cattle and sheep,
containing 300 head of the former and
2,400 head of the latter, waa forwarded from Calgary, Alberta, to
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, to supply
the demands of the farmers in the
district tributary to the latter city.
Thc live stock commissioner of that
province has been scorning Canada,
and parts of the United States for
suitable stock to fill orders his department has received from farmers
in various parts of the province. Nor
has Alberta been backward in this
movement to supply stock to farmers
on terms that will enable them to get
a favorable start. During thc month
of September not less than $29,739
was lent to farmcrs^of the province
under the provisions of its "Cow
Bill," for the purpose of securing cattle, and 513 head were purchased with
the sum and distributed in various
_ -The wonderful opportunities for
live stock raising in Western Canada
are clearly recognized by those in
authority and in -view of this fact, and
thc absence of unfavorable conditions
thc industry is certain to grow to a
far greater importance than it has
vet reached.
Cannot Trace Ancestors More Than
One Generation
Eskimos are not able to trace theii
ancestors back for more than a generation or two because the Eskimo
names do not run from generation to
generation, and in cvery Eskimo family each person has a separate name.
Mendalook, who is a teacher at
Kotzebuc, says that the Eskimos
call themselves "Enupcak."
"Wc learn tliat name from our
forefathers," he continued. "It
means 'a rcal human being.' White
people are called 'Nalluakmeult,*
which means in English, 'people who
come from white t^n sealskin.' Our
forefathers gave the white people
that name because of the color of
their skin, but called themselves
'Enupeak,' or 'real human beings.'
_ "Let us try to 'Enupcak' in every
right way we can. One way is to
have an 'Enupeak'-surname. We are
not a real people because we have no
'Enupeak* surnames. In evcry Eskimo family each person has a separate name, so we cannot trace our
forefathers a generation. We know,"
hardly our -eat-grandfathcr's name,
only our grandfather's name, and
because there is^ no family namc. _ '
"Wc may bc given a name by white
people, but that will not be a real
name to us, as wc are 'Enupeak.' We
must use our 'Enupcak' name for
our last name. If we have no 'Enupcak' name, our name will sink as a
stone when we throw it into thc water. And then our next generation
will hardly know our name.

Au old lady in indifferent health
who had a pet parrot  told  her old
servant she had left her one pound
a   week   so long as   Polly   lived.
One  day,   the servant,   who   was
longing  to  receive   the   promised
pension ife is feared, said, in an impatient   voice,    "If   the old lady
would only  die!"    A. short time
after the  mistress came iu, when
Polly cried out,  "If the old lady
would  only  die."    Terribly upset
and thinking her end was near Bhe
sent for the parson, a  near  neighbor.    Hearing her tale, and seeing
the depression  caused  by  Folly's
speech, the, parson said, "Oh that's
nothing,   parrots say  all kinds of
foolish things, the   bird is perhaps
dull and wants a companion, I will
send   my  bird  over; he is full   of
spirits."    In a short time the parson's    parrot    was    brought   in.
When the cover was  taken off its
cage, the old  lady's  bird  at once
repeated   his  new phrase,   "Oh, if
fehe  old    lady   would   only   die!"
Hardly had ife uttered those words
before   the   parson's    parrot    responded in the voice of his master,
"We beseech thee to hear us, good
Lord."���In a letter from England.
