Good Roads A Necessity
Canada, and especially that greater
nnd now Caii;ul:i comprised within
lhc three L'rairic Provinces of the
West, have numerous problems to
work out in order lo promote the
development of our great natural resources, encourage immigration and
permanent settlement on the land,
ensure the prosperity and comfort of
llie people, and attract visitors from
all parts of the world. To solve tlicsc
many problems will require patience,
courage and capacity on the part of
Governments, municipalities and people, as well as large annual expenditures of money.
It is important, therefore, lhat all
works inaugurated should, as    far
comparatively light fall of   fine,    dry
snow, the roads generally    would   be
1 swept clean by thc winds.
Then there is the saving of time,
gasoline consumption, wear and tear
which comes with good roads. Thc
problem of getting to market for supplies and repairs, and from the farm
lo market with produce, is essentially
a tanner's problem. In many cases
his success in solving it determines
the amount of his year's profits. A
largc motor truck manufacturing concern in the United States recently
made a scries of tests to determine
just how much gasoline and lime
was wasted during a trip over unimproved highways. A two-ton truck
started under capacity load. It travelled ten miles���about the distance "to
town,"���and back again. It was over
an  average  country  road   with    dirt,

Restore Churches
Beast Of Mystery
For London Zoo
Help Has Come From Every Nation
of Allied World.
Paris. ��� Over 3,000 churches were,
either completely destroyed or seriously damaged by thc German inva;
sion of Northern France. The state
in which these martyred churches
now arc found varies from those lhat:
havc been absolutely wiped out to
others which suffered only the damages of occasional stray shells.
The work of restoring the churches
has begun. Thc first annual .general
assembly of the Society to Restore
the Churches of thc Devastated Regions was held in Paris recently. At
that time Vicar Odclin of Paris recently reported that over $265,000
had been  expended  in  beginning  thc
ing this ten-mile trip, two gallons and
one-half pint of gasoline wcrc consumed. Hut' in covering the same
distance over hard-surfaced roads,
the motor required only one gallon
and one quart, a saving of almost a
gallon. It also look the. truck forty-
two minutes longer to make the trip
over the unimproved road.
Multiply this'saving by the. number
of trips made during a season,'and it
it easy to sec how good roads regulate the farmer's bank balance. It
ought to be sufficient to convert
every Western Canadian inlo an enthusiastic good roads booster.

lliey know when an attack may comc
ed, and their upkeep and efficiency
maintained. In this article it is not
the intention to deal with more than
one of these many and diversified
problems. Some people, may think
thc creation of good roads is not the
most pressing of .Western problems,
but few, if any, will deny its importance. "
During the past half century Canada has been busy building railways,
���an enormous and burdensome task
in view of the'magnificent stretches
of territory lhat had to bc covered,
with great barren spots like the north
shore of Lake Superior and the
mountains of British Columbia t.o be
bridged, with many and great rivers
to bc spanned, and with bit: a small
population to bear thc expense, a .id
provide traffic for 'the completed
lines. It is not to the discredit of
Canada, therefore, that in this Dominion less attention and money has
been devoted to good road building
than is true of other cr-untries."
With the advent of the. automobile
and ils general adoption for both passenger -and freight carrying purposes
within the past .two decades, a revolution has been  worked in .the'.primary means'of-transport, rind what was
regarded-as a good road a. few years
-ago-  will    not, under, modern' cbritfi-
. tions of automobile, traffic, stand thc
strain,-. The'lime-has eome, therefore,
-wlicti  the people of Western Canada
must ;face the necessity  r- '   the expenditure involved in abandoning .the
-old-dirt roads and creating permanent
.highway's.    "To.  . continue    spending,
largc" sums-of money annually on dirt
roads is now a -wasteful   -procedure,'
.because the "cost of upkeep .in-a fc\y
years : equals,    if it. does" not execed,-
thc original cost,-and if the roads arc
not 'maintained the "whole expenditure
is waste.     - ������,.���-.
-  The-magnitude of, tlie"task may*, be
-judged, from  -a-   few. Saskatchewan
figures. There.are' over 200,000 miles
of road in'lhat'Province.- A- Government survey'   of,   lV    Province    lias

work of rebuilding-. Help has come,
said the Vicar, from the United
Slates, from Brazil, from Tndia,-in
fact evcry nation of the allied world
is helping France counteract the
work of the destroyer.
Sonic of thc churches will never
bc restored. Some arc gone, completely shot to bits, leaving barely a
trace of their former location. Others,
famous cathedrals such as those of
Reims and Amiens, may bc Jcft as
thcy now stand as a warning to posterity and as an indelible record of
the savagery of thc past five years.
In importance^ architectural beauty
and size the ruined cathedrals and
churches vary from the stalely ruin
of Reims, which will always symbolize the barbarity of the Huns, to the
little,  country  churches.

Swiss, in the service of the Congo
State, who was supervising road-
making when he shot the animal, but
only being wounded, thc okapi made
its escape back into thc Congo forest.
Sir Harry Johnston, administrator of thc Uganda protectorate, devoted much timc to the search for it.
Hc efitcrcd the Congo forest,.. but
the atmosphere was unbearable, owing to the swamps and the smell of
decaying animal and vegetable matter in the her.rt of the tropics. The
expedition had to turn back without
thc okapi. One, however, has been
recently secured alive, and it is hoped that it will bc seen iii Great Britain shortly. ���
Electricity On The Farm
Fanner Will  Use Electric Power to

Farm work is not just a matter of
taking a team to the fields and putting in so many hours a day plowing,
harrowing, seeding, harvesting or
whatcver the task might bc. There
arc also thc chores and farmers arc
coming lo realize more and niorc
that valuable timc can be wasted in
doing chores; that is, where folks
persist in doing them in the old way.
In the field, modern machinery is
employed to save, time and labor and
to make possible short cuts, so that
fewer hands .can do the work and
keep the farm production up to thc
standard that has been set for it.

Days and Mayor Suggests
Winnipeg. ��� The unanimous opinion of the city food and dairy officials expressed "is that the deplorable
waste of food now being reported
from day to day is a direct result of
the recent general strike. Thc health
committee is utterly powerless to do
anything, even if it decides to recommend a probe.
On Tuesday another five tons of
foodstuffs was ordered destroyed.
The total quantity, of food condemned in ten days runs lo twenty tons.
Officials stated that it was nothing
more than could bc expected as it
simply piled up during the strike and
is now being sent in and the railways
arc not to blame.
Mayor Charles F. Gray has sent a
request to thc health committee requesting lhal a probe bc started immediately and a commission be sent

to the fullest extent of the law of

Demobilization   Making   Remarkable
Change in Britain.
London. ��� The public is so engrossed with political and industrial
anxieties that little attention is being
paid to thc remarkable evidence presented iu commons of thc demobilization of Britain's navy. Following
upon peace, thc personnel of the
navy decreased since armistice from
407,000 to 180,000. This compares
with 151,000 which was the number
of men actually sanctioned by parliament in thc last ycar before the war.
On armistice day, the navy had 302
warships and 806 auxiliaries under
orders. Heavy cancellation since has
been made, including three battle
cruisers of thc Hood type. Ships now
being completed arc: One battle
cruiser, 14 light cruisers, 4 destroyer
leaders, 33 destroyers, 32 submarines,
110 auxiliaries, all being essential to
replace old ones or ships so far advanced that it would have been' bad
economy to scrap thcm.
Liberal critics who have always
watched jealously any increases in
tlic navy, warmly congratulated the
government upon thc rigorous reduction of the naval programme as one
of thc first fruits of peace. At thc
same timc the ministers clearly indicated that economy will not bc
permitted to carry the navy below
thc absolute standard of safety. One
Unionist member representing a
naval port, exclaimed indignantly,
"What, arc we to go back to days
of thc little navy party."

London, r-r The Westminster Gazette says that thc question of the
trial of the cx-kaiscr. by the allies deserves to bc examined somewhat
closely from thc Dutch point of view.
~. Several official announcements, on
thc subject havc been made lately,
and their affirmative character seems
to imply that it is taken for granted
that Holland will consent lo extradite
the cx-emperor.
The  bulk  of  public  opinion,   however,   misunderstands   entirely    Hol-
'   land's position as a neutral state, and
is  under a wrong impression  as   regards her obligations.    Quite recently the rumor was spread that the ex-
,   crown prince had "escaped" from his
:  island, and Cecil Harmsworth  afterwards  informed   the  hotisc~ of commons that    thc    allied   powers    had
.  drawn   thc Dutch   government's   at-
.tcntion'"to the advisability of keeping
;a closer watch on the kaiser to prevent his returning to  Germany.
It should be pointed out that  the
ex-kaiscr and his son arc not prisoners  in  Holland.   When  thcy" crossed
the.  Dutch    frontier " in    November,
1918, a residence    \vas    assigned    to
them  by thc   Dutch  authorities,   bul
thcy  were  not  considered  prisoners.
If thcy arc guarded if is not because
thc Dutch government   wishes   them
to remain in thc country.      On    thc
contrary, it'is the sincere wish of the
Dutch government that thc fugitives
leave Holland at the earliest possible
moment.   They are a source of great
embarrassment    to   the Netherlands,
and nothing will bc  done  to  induce
them to remain if thcy~ decide to go.
Any foreigner is  allowed   to  leave
Holland whenever he   chooses,    and
this rule applies to the ex-kaiscr and
the cx-crown prince.   It is, therefore,
difficult to understand   why    thc   allied powers,  who must bc aware   of
this fact, have    invited

French General and Present
London.   ���    JMarsfial    Foch    was
given   a   most   enthusiastic welcome
by the city of London when, accompanied   by   General   Weygand   and
other  distinguished  French  generals,
hc drove in the state carriage    from
the Carlton hotel to thc Guildhall to
receive thc honorary freedom of   thc
city.    The streets were gaily  decorated.   General    Foch    was    received
with    loud    and   prolonged cheering
and thc playing  of   thc Marseillaise
when hc entered the Guildhall, where
a large and   distinguished    company,
including    Prince    Arthur    of- Connaught,      thc   'French    ambassador,
Field Marshal Haig, Sir Henry Wilson,    Right Hon. Winston Churchill,
Right      Hon.    Messrs.    Long
Barnes, and other membeis    of
government were'assembled.
The address conferring the -frce-
dom of the city described General
Foch as a hcioic-general, a model
for future generations of soldiers,
and paid tribute to his brilliant part
in thc war, his stern "sense of duty,
patriotism and supreme knowledge
of the science of war.
Acknowledging the freedom of" thc
city and thc sword of honor, Marshal
Foch, speaking in French, paid a
great tribute to the valor of the
Briiish soldiers, the skill of the British generals, especially General Haig,
and.ftlao the -wonderful work of thc

and munitions.

An immediate strike of thc London
police was decided on tonight at
mass meetings held in various places.
The grievance of thc police is the bill
before parliament reorganizing thc
department." This provides for the
organization of a police union, but
prohibits it from affiliating with labor
unions and prohibits.policemen from
going out on strike under any circumstances, with heavy'penalties.
The strikes of the past month have
been serious enough, but they" are
merely symptomatic of thc dissatisfaction which appears to prevail
throughout the rank3 of organized
labor. Half a'million Lancashire cotton operatives were idle for irr&rc
than three weeks. Two hundred
thousand Yorkshire miners have been
on strike since July 20. The Liverpool dockers have paralyzed shipping
on   Saturdav
the London police arc about
to go on their second strike.
Thc worst movement of all    from
the    government   standpoint    is    tiie
threat of "direct action" by the triple
alliance of raihvaymen,   miners    and
transport workers.    These    powerful
unions arc taking a secret ballot   to
decide .whether they   shall    use    the
weapon of a general strike to try to
enforce their    political    program    of
the nationalization of the mines   and
railways and to end conscription and
.withdrawal from all participation    in
all Russian affairs.
In  these  circumstances,   words
revolution and Bolshevism    crop
in thc newspapers and .are  used
conservative    men   to   describe,

Growing Tomatoes In Alberta
The Canadian
Industrial Congress
Gathering Tomatoes in Alberta.
��� The   production   of    tomatoes    in
largc quantities on the-  prairie    does
not appear to havc been a success in
tlic past, but prairie people arc 'of.a
type'who   -arc   for ever doing .s'onie-
-   tiling which  was  never done before.
Messrs G. O. Kerr and J. E. Terrill,
of Lethbridge, Alberta, have observed foi   sonic ycari,  that tomatoes  in
small Quantities were matured in the
Lcllibiidgc  district and decided  tliat
there was no reason why the experiment should; hot be made oil a commercial   scale.       As  a   result,   about
two acics of tomatoes  were set out
"last .summer on  land farmed by  Mr.
Kcir, a few milcs^east of Lethbridge.
The plants  were started under glass
in Lethbridge and set out "on /unc 6,
7 and S, at which    time tlicy    were
from 6 to-8 inches in  height. ���Three
thousand five hundred    plants    wcrc
set in .the" plot,   some   of   them three
feel   apart and some four feel apart.
The  cxpeiience of the season seems
to indicate that the four-foot plant is
preferable. v
Thc soil secured was an old pasture
which had since been in alfalfa and
is protected by a wind break-of trees
on the western side. It is a very
lich loam -witli a gentle south slope,
and, of course, is irrigated. Thc land
was cultivated in thc ordinary "way
and iuigatcd before planted and
three   times   afterwards.
Thc iiist  of the    ripe    fruit    was
available seven weeks    aftcr    setting
out Jthe plants, or about the    end of
July.    During  thc  month  of August
from  five to six" hundred pounds  of
beautiful ripe fruit was taken off the
plot  each  day and this late of production     continued    into  September.
Thc total yield of the plot is estimated at 35,000   pounds   and a   icacly
anarket was found for the product in
'lhe city of Lethbridge, the early ripe
tomatoes bringing 25 cents a  pound
and the laltci crop 15 cents a pound.
The gross pi ice of 35,000 pounds at
the latter figure is $5,250.
According    to    Mr/ Kcir, no diffi
culties  wcrc  experienced in  thc production of this crop.   The vines were
trimmed   early  in  July  for  the  purpose  of producing heavier fruit and
also admitting more sunshine, which
ripened it very rapidly.    The tomatoes  were  as  largc  and as  well  developed   as   thc   best  imported  stock
from  British   Columbia  or  Washington and, being local grown, they, of
course, reached thc consumer in bct"-
tcr condition. Thc crop was so heavy
that     in   many  cases     the     support
stakes which had been put in for the
vines to climb on were broken down.
One  vine  was" noted   which   had   S3
tomatoes on: il.
Up to the' middle of Scptcmbei  no
damage  had   been   experienced   from
frost, although     as a   ��� precautionary
mtasurc flat stiaw had been dumped
about the plot, so that smudges could
be  started  if  necessary.     "Mr." Kerr
points out lhat the. essential thing in
the production of this crop  was- the
irrigation;  which  not  only   increased
the amount of fruit but by affording
ample   moisture ai the right lime resulted  in   early   ripening.       Without
irrigation it is doubtful if the experiment would ha\ e been al all successful, and'while il is not suggested that
cvery.persqri    can    go    into    tomato
raising in Southern Alberta and produce $2,600 pei  acre,  thc  experience
iu this case is at least instructive as
.to what these irrigated lands arc capable- of.      It is nol too much to say
that such lands,    it    located   in    lhc
mountainous   part   of the   continent,
would  bc sold  at  many hundreds of
dollais "per  acre,  but  because     they
are   found   in   Alberta iu practically
limitless  sweeps  of  prairie   tlicy  are
still sold ready for the plow al    less
than what would be the cost of clearing them in e\cn lightly timbered regions.    Tlicir veiy abundance makes I
il  difficult  to  grasp   their  value, bul'
there  is  little   doubt   that  some  day
they  will  be'the home  of  the  most
productive   and   closely  settled   agricultural community on  th

Great Possibilities of Columbia, Mackenzie, Fraser and Other Rivers.
British Columbia's "boundless wealth
of water power is indicated by a report obtained by engineers of thc
conservation commission at Ottawa,
which estimates it at 3,000,000. horse
The report gives 610,000 24-hour
horse-power as the. amount available
on the Columbia river and its tributaries, 740,000 liorsc-powcr for the
Fraser river and its tributaries, 270,-
000 horse-power for thc Vancouver
Island water-powers; 650,000 for the
mainland' coast and coastal islands
and 250,000 -horse-power for the
Mackenzie, river and its tributaries.
In round figures, the total estimated
power, including about 400,000 horsepower'not counted in the above es-
timates,' because there arc economic
reasons against its 'development, for
an indefinite lime, is placed al about
3,000,000 horse-power.
The report adds: "One cannot hut
be impressed with the fact that'coasl-
al water-powers in  British Columbia,
which  to  the casual, observer appeal
lo bc of comparatively small amount,
'nevertheless may, when economically
and fully developed, yield several-fold
the estimate of power,    if   appraised
upon    the    same    basis . as    similar
streams in Eastern Canada.   Glaciers,
snow-fields, and heavy rainfall abound,
and, with  many storage possibilities,
constitute unique factors which  contribute    to    enhance    the' values   of
powers.   These    conditions,    on     the
other   hand   emphasize   the   necessity
of special and very careful cngincci-
ing investigation    and   expert  handling."
Vimy Ridge Remains
Shell-Torn Wonder
Salvage Corps Gather Materials and
Find Buried Soldiers.
Tlfc fact alone that the Canadian
corps took.such a gallant part, not
-only in the capture of Vimy Ridge,
but also in the*holding of this position during the great, German offensive, will no doubt be a reason why
no Canadian torn ist will fail to see
this historic battleground.
Th.e French; have already rebuilt
the, Amiens-Arras and Lille railway, j
which runs through no man's land
along lhe Ancre , river, passing
thrcSttgh the ruins of Albert, Beaumont Hariiel, Miratimont, and' many
other villages' made famous in thc
furious fighting along thc Somme.
Today the trains arc crowded v-'ilh
French villagers and. farmers returning again to find their homes. One
would not care to look upon a sadder sight than to see some of these
old French couples standing betore a
pile of bricks and stone or searching
'among the ruins of what wa"s once
their homes.
It is only some five or six miles
from Arras to Vimy.along that road
so well known to all Canadians who
took part in the operations' at' thc
ridge'. The French taxi-drivers were

Compulsory Town Planning
To Settle A Horse Trade
Scheme Generally Put Things Right
and No One Was Wronged"
On several occasions I' have had
disputes about horse trades. A man
not knowing much about hoises
would buy a horse from a trader who
would say the horse was sound and
a good worker, and afterwards thc
purchaser would find that the horse
was unsound' and not able lo woik.
Hc'would complain that he had been
defrauded. Hc would get a summons,
ancl thc case would come before nic,
charging the trader with defrauding
him by false pretences out of the
price of the horse, say $100. The
facts would conic 'out before mc and
the evidence o"
veterinary surgeons
prove   that   the     horse   was
woi lliless.    I would then say to the

Haphazard Growth of Towns Leads
to Serious Evils.
Town planning in Great Biitain
has so far advanced beyond the experimental stage that it has now been
decided to make il compulsory for
cvciy town, having 20,000 inhabitants,
or more, to submit a town planning
scheme for its own area to the Local
Government Board, not later than
1926. * Stich a sjeheme must embrace
the limitation'.of'population densities
per acre; define the portion of. a site
area to be covered with buildings, the
character of the buildings, thc lines
of arterial 'roads and the provision of
open spaces.
The Biitish people lealize that
haphazard growth of towns leads to i
serious evils and thcy arc determined
to conliol it. In future, land will
have to be developed so as best to
scivc the interests of the community,
which, in thc long mu, is usually in
lhe inlcicsts of thc landholders
themselves. Only thc land speculator is adversely affected. If the public
wish to put that individual out of
business, thcy cannot do it more effectively than by actively promoting
proper schemes of town planning.
In Canada, the province of Nova
Scotia took thc lead in making town
planning compulsory in 1915. The
only other province which has a coni-
ptiisoiy act is Saskatchewan. These
are therefore the only two piovinces

Labor And Liquor
Prohibition Accompaaied By Aspira-
..     tions of Labor for Better
Few social developments arc more
significant than the changed attitude
of orga-iji/ced labor to prohibition.
Two years ago the trades-and labor
councils of Canadian cities were
strongly arrayed in opposition to thc
various prohibitory flaw's, and. not tlie
least reason for this was thc distrust
awakened by the fact that prohibition was advocated by large employers for what workmen supposed to
be class purposes.
The working out of prohibition,
however, has had unexpected results.
Union meetings arc better attended,
and there is less~disposition to leave
early before the bars should close.
And certainly the new conditions under prohibition have made far more
sustained attention and study of the
problems of industry.
It is not surprising, therefore, tliat
prohibition has heen accompanied by
an emphatic re-asscrtibn of the aspirations of labor for better conditions and niorc effective organization
in support of those aspirations. This
explains why leading authorities in
the shipbuilding industry appeared

havc committed upon Turks in    the
neighborhood of that city when they
landed there.   It Was decided to send
a mission    of experts  to investigate
the charge.
The council has taken no action
concerning the punishment of the
former emperor of Germany, and
does not favor allowing Field Marshal Von Hindenburg or anyone else
to be substituted for the former monarch.
The council appears lo be firm in

On the other hand, men like -Pro'

resentment by pleas that the, ordinary worker is far-more happy sitting
with his mug of beer than attending
to the duties of his union. And writers in labor papers have protested-
against the efforts of men conspicuous in financial circles to restore the
open  sale  of liquor. ���   J
It is therefore not surprising that
one labor council aftcr another has
placed itself on record as favoring
prohibition. While there. arc still
several who have not thus fully
changed their mind, and others who
would favor tlie provision for beer,
there is no doubt about a widespread
and definite change from hostility to
support of drastic measures for the
restriction of the sale of liquor.
Great efforts have been put forth
to secure from vaiious unions and
labor councils expressions of opposition to total prohibition, but the efforts, to maintain the old line-up have
been   quite  disappointing.
If prohibition brings as its first
result ~a more thoughtful and disciplined, and also a more ambitious,

his mind'would turn involuntarily to
go home and concoct something of
the same sort which looked much
prettier (on-her head) for about five.
But there is really nothing very
much to do about shoes except to
buy thcm, and this expenditure on
Darthca's part, representing thc
equivalent of a week's food for the
pair of them, it was a matter to bc
approached with great care and consideration. Darthca during her sojourn in Paris had been in the habit
of buying her shoes at the big department store, "Merrie England/'"
whicli was nearly opposite the branch
store of thc Walkeasy Shoe Company
on  the  Boulevard des  Capucincs.
Wherefore, accompanied by Miss
Challand, who was much more insistent than her niece on thc question
of fit and finish, and therefore- commanded a more painstaking attention,
Darthca set out to buy her pair of
shoes. The weather had been stormy
for several days, which rendered thc
purchase more peremptory, so thcy
caught a bus, descended at the Place
dc l'Opera, and walked up thc Boulevard to  "Merrie  England."
"I'm sure you'd do much better at
the Walkeasy shop across thc street,
my dear," said Miss Challand. "Their
shoes may cost a little more, but you
would get quite thc worth of it in
wear and comfort,"
Rugglcs would have felt like embracing her could hc have heard this.
"Possibly," Darthca answered, "but
I hate those pug-nosed American
shoes, aunty. Besides, I like to do
my buying in a British shop."
But alas for thc inscrutable ways
in which Fate controls our destinies!
A swift examination of their stock
appeared to demonstrate that Darthca's particular requirements were
thc only ones that thc Britisii shop
was unable to supply at that particular moment. Thcy were expecting hourly a ncw consignment of
goods, and if the lady could call again
in a day or two shc would find the
precise article for which shc asked.
Darthca did not wish to call again.
It was a Saturday, and she and her
aunt had an engagement to walk with
Rugglcs in thc Bois the following afternoon, stopping at thc Pre Catclan
for tea, and shc wanted to wear her
new' shoes. Wherefore, politely expressing their regret to the suave
youth who had waited on them, Dar?

ncss, A.. F. Wood, that if Labor could
prove the fact that the recent strike
had been called solely on the demand
of collective bargaining, he could not
sec that discrimination could be justly shown by employers. This demand, said the commissioner, had
been conceded by the iron masters,
the citizens-committee and apparently by everybody except a few individuals, and cmplojrers could not
withhold employment from a man if
hc admitted that the reason for thc
strike was just. "Labor would have
to prove that there were no other
reasons back of the strike than that
one principle of collective bargaining.
All witnesses testified to a general
unrest that had been evident in
Labor during the present ycar. Thc
cause of thc strike was placed ou the
high cost of living, which one witness
blamed thc government for permitting to exist. Thc profiteering was
also mentioned as a cause of thc
strike. Witness Stevenson recommended thc formation by the government of a permanent commission "to
adjust the differences between Labor
and Capital.
If Germany Had Won
German High Command Had Decided to Control Belgium in Their
Terms of 1917.
Copenhagen. ��� The control of Belgium and possession of Liege was
the determination of the German
high command in 1917. Chancellor
Michaclis drew up a tentative plan
for peace negotiations, incorporating
in this the demand for Liege and adjacent territory and the economic
union of Belgium with Germany.
Thc chancellor, -however, planned to
hold Licgc only provisionally, as a
factor of security.
Field Marshal Yon Hindenburg
was opposed to thc giving up _of
Liege. Hc would hear of no talk of
indemnities nor would he indicate
Germany's intention lo the ciicniy.

military pressure and the driving
back- of the "British-, and' French
armies. .Only lints, hc contended,
could . Belgium become economically
and 'intimately.- connected with tlic

German U-Boat Losses
Submarine    Warfare Destroyed - the
Morale    of"  the    German
Surface Navy
German Uboat losses were rigor
ously concealed during the war. The
allied governments wcrc also wary
aboul publishing estimates of U-boat
sinkings, since by the nature of the
case it was difficult to establish thc
fact that a submarine, supposed to
have been disposed of by a depth
bomb, was actually destroyed.
Figures which recently appeared hi
Berlin show that thc German submarine losses were startlingly high.
One hundred and seventy-eight U-
boats were destroyed by the allied
fleets���eighty-two in thc North Sea
and the Atlantic, sevcnty-lwr off the
coast of Flanders, sixteen in the Mcd-
iterianean, five in the Black Sea, and
three jn the Baltic. In addition, fourteen were blown up by tlicir own
crews and seven ran for safely into
neutral harbors, where thcy were interned. The immense damage done
to allied and neutral shipping, in thc
course of thc German submarine
campaign could not bc concealed; thc
world was greatly impressed by it,
It would havc been less impressed
if the rcal German rate of wastage
had been known. This was, of
course, hidden even from the German public���perhaps from thc kaiser
and some of thc military leaders.
But what wasn't successful!} hidden
was thc demoralization of tlic personnel of thc German navy, caused
by the constant drafting of men for
submarine work. Thc sailors began
to look on thc U-boals as submerged
coffins. Thcy rose in mutiny in the
summer of 1917, and Admiral von
Schecr says lhat his plan fc- an attack on the allied' fleet in the fall o
! 1918 was frustrated by a similar mutiny. Thc submarine warfare thus
completely destroyed thc morale of
the German surface navy.
The revelation of German losses
throws a ncw light on thc problem
the submarine's offensive valre. Thc
U-boat was a nightmare for a timc.
But devices have been developed to
reduce its terrors. As things stand,
all naval policy is in a state of flux
_?!lc__ (t_iy.r_c_i-s _con fused
conference didn't outlaw thc sub
marine. And it is sa'fe to say that
thc airship now carries a greater potentiality of military f rightfulness
than thc submarine.���From thc New-

Comes When  the Blood is  Weak
and Watery.
Thin blooded people generally have
stomach trouble. But they^ seldom
recognize the fact that thin blood is
the cause of their indigestion, but
it   is.
Thin blood is one of the most common causes of stomach trouble; it
affects the digestion very quickly.
The glands that furnish thc digestive
fluids aie diminished in their activity, thc stomach muscles-arc weakened and there is a loss of nerve force.
In this state of health nothing .will
more quickly restore the appetite,
digestion and normal nutrition than
good, rich, red blood.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills act directly on the blood, making it rich and
red, and this enriched blood strengthens weak nerves, stimulates tired
muscles, and awakens to normal activity the glands that supply tlie digestive fluids. The first sign of returning health is an improved appetite, and soon lhc effect of these
blood-making pills is ���evident
throughout the whole system. You
find that what you cat does not distress you, and that you are strong
and vigorous instead of irritable and
listless. You are on thc road to
sound, good health and care in your
diet is all you need. If,your appetite
is fickle, if you have any of the
distressing pains and symptoms of
indigestion you should begin to cure
yourself at once by taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

Mechanical Flight Is Shown to Be
Regular .Subject in Colleges
London, Eng.���When the news of
Hawker's rescue was called by    the
newspaper    boys    in    the    London
streets on Sunday, May 25, the universal interest displayed in the eager
rush to read the'good tidings equalled some of thc biggest days, of the
war; and one could hot help speculating upon the measure of popular
interest    in flying in    Great Britain.
Hawker had not succeeded, nor was
hcjthe popular idol.. that Gustav Ha-
mel was in the heyday of his success;
Hawker could not be that, for during   .the war his name   has scarcely
ever'been before the public.
Allowing for thc advenlurousncss
of his flight, it is obvious that the
newspapers, in giving great prominence to aeronautical affairs, have cor-
rcctly'gaugcd public desire.
Mingling with thc crowds, and
overhearing their comments, one was
amazed at thc intelligence displayed,
particularly by boys of all classes of
society. Not a word was heard in
condemnation of the foolhardy clement in thc attempted crossing of the
Atlantic. Yet no more than eight
years ago, when the writer was learning to fly, he was painfully aware of
a very different altitude of thc public

Acreage  Has Been
This Season
A largc number of farmers in thc
Okanagan Valley in British Columbia arc seriously considering tobacco
growing. A larger acreage has been
planted this season than for several
ycars, due to thc stabilization of the
market, which means the "assurance"
to tiie farmer of a fair return for his
labor and capital.
Tobacco is a quick crop in Britisii
Columbia. .. It is set out in June and
harvested about  the  middle of August, thus    taking about - 65 days to
grow.    This ycar there will bc about
175 acres in  this crop,  chiefly
Kclowna, -but Salmon     Arm,

The cost of growing tobacco in
BritisTr"Columbia is from seven to
eleven cents a pound. It sells for
twenty cents a pound, raw icaf, aftcr
being dried. One of the growers last
ycar harvested an average yield of
1,500 pounds pcr acre, which brought
him a return of $300 to thc acre, or a
net profit of $185 an acre after deducting thc growing cost of nine
cents an acre.
The whole of last year's tobacco
crop was sold to an eastern tobacco
firm, and an arrangement has been
madc to sell the entire crop io this
firm again this ycar.

Even in the elementary schools flying is the subject of simple explanations; while in.the secondary schools
and the colleges and universities mechanical flight is now a regular subject. Thc universities of London and
Cambridge both have chairs of aeronautics, and aeronautics is this year
to be one of thc optional subjects in
the examination for the Bachelor of
Science (engineering)    Degree (London). ,    Flight and ballooning arc a
long way first as space monopolizers
in  weekly and monthly     magazines
read by children and adults.   " The
British boy of today, like his American contemporary, can tell you something about the'reactions from the resistance of the air upon planes, and
the way it is utilized as "lift"; and hc
is  an  exceptional  boy if he  cannot
explain thc rudiments of the internal
combustion  engine, and  tell you  the
difference between  the fixed and rotary types.
Yet "for the present, to th.e great
mass of the people, flying remains an
unattainable experience. Even the
{facilities for obtaining flights on payment of the modest sum of ten shillings arc not popular enough to enfranchise thc gieat mass of the public. Thc working classes are restless,
and arc occupied by the closer problems of th'eir welfare. The contrasts
between the lifc of the rich and thc
life of thc poor were never so insistently discussed as they are today, To

Will Be Inhabited by Syrian Children Left Destitute by Turkish
New York. ��� The City of Orphans
Is the namc of a town in Syria, which
will be inhabited by the Syrian.children left destitute by the Turkish massacres and the ravages of war.   Already the children are being brought
together in temporary orphanage's by
tlie American committee for relief in
the Near East.
Bayard Dodge, who recently returned from six years of relief work
in Syria, said that even if the best
and wealthiest government in the
world took over Syria, it could hot
care for the orphans properly, since
this is not so much a matter of relief
as - of reconstruction.
"The true horror of the famine h1
Syria," he said, "has. been the mor..l
breakdown. The horror 'of'havinj
thousands of neglected children
growing up without homes or education, thc victims of a demoralized
environment, is awful to contemplate.
In thc small area of Syria for which
I compiled statistics there are 349
villages, with 4,364 - orphans and 9,683
children with only one parent."
Mr. Dodge outlined the plan of
Dr. Stanley .White and Maj. James
H. Nicho'l, who. have been in charge
of local relief work by the Red Cross
and the Near East committee. They
intend to train a number of native
children as farmers, mechanics,
clerks,, artisans, and industrial .laborers, thus forming a nucleus for further educational work in the generation upon which will; fall the responsibility of creating a ncw nation.
As far as possible the children will
bc trained as Syrians. The American
influeiice^will be strong- enough to
develop efficient management and
high ideals, but not so strong as to
breed dissatisfaction or lack of patriotism. The committee in Berut hopes
to limit the number of children to
5,000, to group them into small families wilh self-government, to teach
them useful trades, and to
presentatives of different, sects
gc titer.
A "site will be chosen for the City
of Orphans, small houses will be
built so that they may be sold after
10 or 15 ycars, and American child
experts, physicians and teachers will
be obtained to direct the work.

The Iron Road In
The Wilderness
Another  Example   of  Eastern   Conservatism as Invaded by Occidental Ideas.
In laying the last tic in itj railway
link connecting Jerusalem  and Suez,
the   British   Government   admittedly
has, of course, not exhausted the possibilities of obtaining speedy passage
over this historic wilderness.    When
an aeropi?no undertakes to soar from
Mecca  to  thc isthmus, as  will inevitably soon bc the case, the reckoning
in days may well bc    reduced    to    a
matter of hours;    yet    even the time
now    required ��� approximately   five
days���is shorter than was evrr hoped
for in  the days when  caravans alone
j plied the desert fastnesses   of   Sinai.
[There is another.c.\aiiiple of eastern

century as in thc timc of Moses,   ins

to, the demands  of progress
of people the aeroplane must appear as merely another
instrument of oppression and of class
distinction; just as the motor car
seemed 20 year.; ago, and the car dc
luxe of today still appeals.
But even thc Labor newspapers are
nowgiving attcntion_to thc-devclop-
ments of flying, and some of the
warmest messages of congratulation
sent to Hawker on his return were
from Labor leaders. In a great population there always is, unfortunately,
a very big section intellectually ine'rt,
incapable of exerting the imagination,
and having no interest beyond their
more primitive physical needs; but
this section is no more obtuse to mechanical flying than it is to the 3'car's
academy or to thc settlement of
Europe af tei the w ar.
Wc cannot sec yet in what way flying can ever become popular in  the
sense  that motoring is.    Thc  means
have not been  discovered.      But 25
ycars ago much thc same    could-be
said of motoring.   At that time it was
proved, on paper, by experts, that thc
transportation     of    passengers     and
goods at cheap  lates  by automobile
was out    of the  question,    that the
auto  would  never  compete  with   thc
railway, and   that  a  motor  omnibus
was an impossible pioposition.   In 10
ycars thc price of a flight in an aeroplane has    comc    down    from    five
guineas to ten shillings, and the quality has,  moreo\er,    enormously    iin
proved.   We cannot sec the way, but

The Wants of Man

Nor wants that little long."
'Tis not with me exactly so;
But 'tis so in-the song. '   -
My wants are many and, if told, " y
��� Would muster many a scoie,
And were each wish a mint of gold, ���
I still should long for more.
I want (who does not want?) a wife���
Affectionate and fair;
To solace all the woes of life,   . -
And all its joys to share.   -
Of temper sweet.of, yielding will, '    - '���
!    Of firm, yet placid mind,-V
With all my faults to love me still -
With sentime'ntrefined.    -
I want a .warm and faithful friend,
. To cheer the adverse hour;
Who ne'er to flatter will descend, -'    -
Nor bend the knee to power,��� .
A friend to chide me when I'm wrong'
- My inmost soul to see;
And that my friendship prove as strong
For him as his for me.
I want the seals of power and place,
The ensigns of command:
Charged by the People's unbought grace
To rule my native land.
Nor crown or sceptre would I ask
- But from my country's will, -
By .day, by night, to ply the task
Her cup of bliss to SH. -  "''
These are the Wants of mortal Man,���
I cannot want them long,
For life itself is but a span, ~  ���

And summoned to my final call,
