With the exception of some  scouting parties they are exactly where they were  a week ago, and many of their scouting parties  have been severely handled. At Herstal, a suburb" of Liege, on south side ,of .the Meuse, the  women and old men manhandled a party, of Uh-'  lans, receiving them with hot water ancLpistolsl  Herstal or Herbestal, is a little place of very ancient origin. Here the visitor is shewn the house  in which Charlemagne was born, nearly 1000 years  ago. It is only a very small country village, near  the Dutch frontier.  An absolute cloud of   darkness   covers the  movement of the British troops to the continent.,  How many���������what kind and under whose direct  command the troops have gone is unknown.    <  Where they have gone is also unknown, more  than that* they landed at Calais, Dunkirk and  Ostend* V  , ,'. With' Kitchener at the helm, the most efficient man on earth today, the. Empire feels that v  her land forces are assured of sound direction  and capable handling���������the British soldiers *Will ;  do the rest.    * ��������� ' ;���������, \'  As regards the fleet they are enveloped "in a ,  contplete cloud   of   darkness���������absolute   silence,  about them and all their movements has prevailed since they sailed with orders to destroy the  German fleet.   The incident of the sinking bf the, r  . Konigin Louise and blowing up of the Ampbion ,  are like lightning flashes but of dark and threat-  . ening cloud.  .-   'Will-the, German submarines lor, .the much,  ize the odds against them 4a, a question only time  vaunted air craft succeed in an attack, and equal-  can answer.  Meantime every day's delay is against Germany.   Jt has now become abundantly evident  " that Germany planned this awful outbreak and  , purposely let loose the dogs of war.  The German  leaders must,helieve that they are able to win  out, and this in itself must give every thonghtful  man a sense of anxiety, for the Germans have always been thought of as experts in the dread  game of war.   In fact, "Kriegs-spieJ" is the German game for men as whist is for the Britisher.  It is useless to deny the fact that Germany  occupies a stragetic position of great value and  I) great danger. She can hurl her armies against  either frontier with the least amount of transport,  and that organized to the very highest pitch. By*  means- of the Kiel canal she can play hide and  seek with the British fleet oyer a-vast area,_and -  [ threaten Russia, Sweden and Denmark.'  Moreover, she may be, able to make a sortie  and take one portion of the fleet and overwhelm  it with her concentrated numbers.. She can change  her front quickly, either on sea or land, and concentrate her forces with lightning rapidity. Last  of all her forces are under one -control, and that  a man of apparently desperate ambition.  On the other hand Germany may be attacked '  on many sid#es at once, and apparently all the  world is lining up against her.  That General Kitchener considers the position  serious is apparent from the call made for. men  and the measures taken in the old land.  If Germany succeeds the liberties of the world  lie prostrate at the Kaiser's feet, for he has a,  ruthless hand and is ably backed up. If the Kaiser is beaten the end we sadly fear is not yet, for  when revolution raises her bloody hand none of  us can tell where she may stop. The outlook is  not heartening.  THE MOTHER AND HER CHILDREN  Britain's.war establishment in Homeland is  now a million strong and all under arms.  Canada offers 100,000 men, gives 1,000,000  sacks of flour: Alberta 500,000 bushels of oats.  Montreal millionaire donates $500,000 cash for  defence. Toronto broker, Louis Gurofsky offers  to equip a regiment of his own countrymen- at  his own expense in order to show the loyalty of  the Hebrews and their appreciation of the liberties they enjoy under the British flag.  Blood Indians wish to go to the front.  South African Boers will defend the Empire to  the last cartridge.  Australia contributes a large contingent and  offers horses to Britain up to an unlimited quantity.   Maori Indians desire to raise a contingent.  Indian native princes wish to contribute entire  military forces.  , .Ireland���������Nationalist and Unionist wish to lay  entire armed forces at Kitchener's command and  desire to fight shoulder to shoulder. Militant  suffragettes notify all their forces to cease fighting whilst Empire is at war. This is no mean contribution. If only the Empire could mobilize them  in Berlin.  /���������������'  ''. J.

Paul Charnier, a manufacturer of flags in Paris  today offered a reward of five thousand francs  ($1,000) to the Frenchman, no matter of what  rank, who wrests away from its bearer the first  Teutonic standard. He deposited the money in  cash with Le Matin, a daily newspeper.  Great enthusiasm was aroused by his offer.

London, Aug. 13.���������First great battle of the  war draws near.  The battle ."front will probably be between  Liege, Belgium, and Longwy, France, extending  over 200 miles.  Germany has moved army of the Moselle into  line, and strongly reinforced same. French. Belgian and British troops confront them although  in what disposition is unknown.  The struggle for the possession of the forts  around Liege has re-commenced and heavy artil  lery is rapidly being concentrated on this point.  From the reports arriving of active artillery and  cavalry engagements it may be that the big battle  has begun.  Paris, Aug. 13.���������The German cruisers Goeben  and Breslau, having taken refuge in Constantinople, the Turkish government has announced  that they will be immediately dismantled. Rumor has it that Germany has sold these boats to  Turkey. If true this would constitute a grave  breach of neutrality on Turkey's part, and would  not be tolerated.

MNHIMVE.  Phone Fairmont 18S2  ^ts/zvc^  lor Results  outset; of hostilities between herself  and France, Germany is doing only  what military -.'experts have always  predicted she would do should war  break out. Press despatches emphasize the fact that in so doing Germany  is violating the neutrality of the  Duchy; Luxemburg was declared  neutral territory in 1867, and its integrity and , independence jointly  guaranteed by the Great Powers at  that time. No one has ever supposed,  however, that Germany would be  bound by' any such guarantee in the  event of war.  To understand the significance of  Germany's course of action it is necessary to know something about  that vexed territory the Franco-  German border, running from the  Swiss mountains on the south, to,  where the river Meuse enters Belgian territory,, and even beyond that,  where the Belgian fortresses of Namur and Liege guard the river, the  real stragetic boundary between the  two countries, although the political  boundary, established by the Treaty  of Frankfurt in 1871, runs some miles  to the eastward.  It is to be noted at this point that  Germany has no fortifications on her  side of the boundary. German military strategy has staked everything  upon the chance of an early and immediate success after the outbreak  of war. If they fail in that they have  no defensive line upon which to fall  back and the failure to achieve immediate success under such a policy  means defeat.  France, on the other hand; has  adopted no such policy. Following  the establishment of the new boundary between the two countries,- after  her defeat in 1870-71, France at once  set about the task of making the new  boundary between herself and her  conqueror "impregnable," or as  nearly so as the science of fortification could make it.  Modern fortification is not intended to protect a weaker power from  a stronger one permanently,' it is  meant only to delay an invading force  until - the nation which is acting on  the defensive 'can bring up her*  troops to compel the invader to employ three men for every man employed by the defender, in a word to  give the defensive force time in  which to act. Wars within recent  years, notably the Russo-Japanese  and Balkan wars, have demonstrated  the soundness of this theory. Port  Arthur and the Tchatalja lines showed the effectiveness of the modern  fortress against even the strongest  besieging forces.  With this object in mind France  set about the creation of her "great  series of ring fortresses. A glance at  map No. 1 will show their location.  Beginning just above the 'Swiss  Alps France built the first of this  series of- great - forts - at - Belfort.  North of Belfort comes a stretch of  mountainous country, the Vosges  so difficult of access and transit as  to form a natural barricade needing  little or no artificial strengthening.'  Just behind the Vosges country lies  the second ring fortress, Epinal.  Then comes Toul, then Verdun in  the Meuse river and just above Verdun the Meuse enters Belgian territory.  the south it is safe to assume���������an  assumption borne out furthermore'  by the seizure of the Luxemburg  railway���������that Germany will turn  her attention to the north end of the  French line.  As we have Seen, France and Belgium have not been under any illusions as to the likelihood of Germany's respecting Belgium neutrality, hence Namur and Liege./ The  German attack would have to be  made along the line of the lower  Meuse river. The Germans cannot  cross the Meuse lower down than  Liege and march through Belgium,  neglecting Liege, because if they  did so their line of communication,  the breaking of which means defeat  to any army, would run between  Liege and Antwerp with strong garrisons and with a third, fortress. Namur, a little further on the line of  advance. Antwerp and Liege lie far  apart but the former is indefinitely  suppliable by sea and, so long as  Germany does not control the sea,  can be made the base for an ever  increasing force. Similarly a German force cannot cross between Namur and Liege for the same reason,  the necessity of protecting its. line  of communication. Nor it is likely  that the Germans can attack Namur  before Liege since Liege , stands  nearer the German frontier than  does Namur. Between Namur and  Verdun there is a long gap, but the  frontier here, the Ardennes, as in  the case of the Vosges, is mountainous, ill-provisioned, preciptious and  thickly wooded. Military critics do  not believe that the Ardennes march  could be undertaken till Liege, the  most norteherly stronghold in the  French system, had been reduced.  It is not so inaccurate as it sounds  to speak of Liege as an integral part  of the French "fortification scheme.  It lies in Belgian territory, but it is,  none the less, as much a part of the  France's plan for the fortifctation  of her eastern frontier as is any  other of the great ring fortresses.  It, together with' Namur is garrisoned by Belgian troops in times ��������� of  peace, a source of weakness owing*  to scarcity of numbers and dissimilarity of training.  Presuming, therefore, that German -troops cross the frontier with  Liege as their objective point, for  reasons which we have seen, what  is likely to follow?  If one may judge by the war history of the past ten years, a long  and bloody siege, for Liege is one of  the best examples in Europe of the  ring fortresses.  The ideal ring fortress would be  a town capable of ample provisioning and lying within an exact circle  of heights of anl average of some  8,000 yards distance, each height  some 4,000 yards from the next, each  crowned with a self-contained closed work and each such work within support of at least two others.  Skill and the natural conformation  of the ground have combined to  make almost these ideal conditions  around Liege. Map No. 2 gives a  plan of the fortifications of the  place:  The great strength of Liege is  seen by a glance at the above map,  If Every Person Strictly Observed  These Simple Rules, the Great Annual Loss by Forest Fires Would  be Reduced to a Minimum.  1. Be sure your match is out before you throw it away.  2. Knock out your pipe ashes or  throw your cigar or cigarette stump  where there is nothing to catch fire.  3. Don't. build a camp fire any  larger than is absolutely necessary.  Never leave it, even for a short time,  without putting it OUT with water  or earth.  4. Don't build a camp fire against  a tree or a log. Build a small one  where you can scrape away the needles, leaves or grass from all sides of  it.  5. Don't build bonfires. The wind  may rise at any time and start a fire  which you cannot control.  6. If you discover a fire, put it out  if possible; if you can't, inform the  nearest Forest Ranger or Fire Warden as quickly as yo'u possibly can.  jThe main avenue  of approach  from  Were   Germany  in  the    habit    of!Germany  lies  between   Forts   1  and  Our Clients get  Results from  Our  Experience  Closed at 1:00 O'clock u Saturdays  Specially insured against burglary  and hold-ups.

McKay Station, Burnaby  respecting  treaties  it   would  be  un- 2, and is entirely dominated by them,  necessary for France to consider for-  Forts 9 and 10 and 3 and 4 similarly  tification   above   this   point,   but   nol_ie above the Meuse    at  one  has  ever  supposed  that,  in  the  event   of   war,   Germany   would   re  spect any declaration of neutrality  made by Belgium or for Belgium by  any one power. Therefore, the  continued fortification of the Meuse  in Belgium territory is of cardinal  importance to France. This fortification is ensured by the existence  of two great Belgium: strongholds,  one at Namur and the other at  Liege. .  Now, this series of obstacles  makes it altogether., probable that  Germany, instead of trying to pierce  through the centre of the frontier as  she did in 1870 will attempt to turn  the flank, or get around* the end, of  the line of forts. Where will she do  this?  To attfcmpt to turn the French  line to the south would mean the  marching of great bodies of troops  through exceedingly difficult country. Supposing even that Switzerland consented to the violation of  her territory by Germany, the country to the south of the French line  is a mass of mountains, intersected  by few roads where a small force of.  defenders would have all the advantage and where* .'the difficulties of  debouching into open country after  crossing the mountains would be  very great in the face of an opposing army.  >ts entry  into Liege and its exit, Fort No. 4  occupies a pinnacle whence even  No. 2 could be supported and sweeping the high ground in front of 3  and 5. Nos. 9 and 10 dominate the  valleys on their respective sides.  On the north the whole half circle  of forts lie on crests overlooking  gradually falling ground. There is  not a yard of ground around any of  the forts which cannot be swept by  a supporting fire from one or more  adjoining forts and there is no "key  fort" the carrying of which would  mean the domination of the yfhole  situation.  To sum up: it seems inevitable  that Liege and the lower Meuse will  be the objective point of the earlier.  German attacks, that the idea of  "rushing" Liege must be abandoned  and-that the stronghold must; be  reduced by a regular siege before  a general German advance into Belgium is safe and that to bring about  this reduction. of the city a large  force will have to be employed for  some time. For Germany to attempt  to invade France through the centre of her line of fortifications would  mean a delay sufficient to enable  France to concentrate her troops  and, what is more would give Russia the time needful to throw an  enormous mass of soldiers across  Germany's  western   frontier:  Natural con ditions have this sum:  mer been more favofable to forest  fires in Older British Columbia, the  district south of the railway belt, than  in any other previous summer in ten  years. There have been eight weeks  of drought, during which hot days,  hot nights and high winds have dried  timber and vegetation, fanned sparks  and carried flames beyondS control  in an instant.    '  The great danger has' fortunately  been apparent to everyone. Land  clearing operations, campers, construction works, railroads have been  kept under careful watch by private  citizens, timber owners and forest  guards. During June more fires were  extinguished by forest officers in dangerous' districts than had occurred all  last summer. In July' as conditions  grew worse the patrol staff was increased. Towards the end of "July,  as the whole country became extremely inflammable,' awaiting only a  spark, special warning was sent forest officers to see that all fires were  immediately extinguished and dangerous operations' suspended.-  The precautions taken were well  justified., Many fires escaped control  and were only, by the wholesale employment of men, by loggers, railroad companies and the Forest  Branch, kept from doing serious'damage. Fires have gained a flying start  on the slash resulting from the past  few years logging. For two .weeks  over 3000 men and, on three occasions, special trains have been employed restricting' fires to logged  over areas. The efforts have been  successful except in two instances.  The worst fire loss has been at Bull  river, where two fires starting from  logging camps, swept simultaneously  through slash, surrounded 500 fire  fighters with great loss of timber,  and it is "feared loss of life. "Another  fire starting from railroad construction, destroyed valuable timber in the  Similkameen valley. Many fires in  slashings are still unextinguished. A  continuance of dry weather will result in further loss of timber in spite  of the efforts of the Forest Branch.  The prevention of forest fires is  every citizens' duty. Everyone is  urged to be careful with fire in or near  woods until the dry summer season  has passed. An announcement of the  destruction will be issued in a few  weeks.  H. R.

Marin La Meslee, an 'instructor in the University  of Chicago faculty and a former  French soldier. Mr. La Meslee, who  was formerly an instructor at West  Point, holds that the peasants of the  German lands are being involved unwillingly in war on France and Belgium, because their martial leaders  have decided to- strike these nations  to obtain their choice colonial possessions.  "Germany is a pacific nation," he  said. The people of the country are  inclined for peace. The Germans as  a whole are as peaceful as the French.  Seek World-Wide Domination  "There is a war "party in Germany  which desires domination���������universal  domination. This party wants to  dominate Europe first, and then all  foreign affairs.  "The desire for France or the  French colonies is in keeping with  this idea. The war party in Germany  is using the whole of the army to  force domination. Belgium is being  attacked to obtain the Belgian Congo.  "The farmers and small tradesmen  of Germany do not want to leave their  homes to fight.'. But a sweeping wave  of sentiment has been created by the  activities of the war party, and the  peaceful peasants have been carried  away on the wave."  Prof. La Meslee- is a citizen of  France. He recently came, to the  United States from a trip through  western Europe. His father was shot  by Prussians in the war of 1870.  Predicts War with Swiss.  Prof. Albert Schintz of Smith college, who is giving a summer course  at the Uiiiversity of Chicago, predicted that Germany would soon be  involved in a war with the Swiss, if  accounts of violation of neutrality on  the Swiss frontier are true. The professor, who is a native of Switzerland, said the Swiss are exasperated  because of aggressive acts by the Germans in building fortifications to  command the frontier and exacting  concessions in the renewal of a  twenty-five-year charter for'the Itaio-  Swiss-German international railroad  line.

It has also been stated that,  if all bird life were destroyed, seven  years would see the end of venation in Canada. This has been *l>e  reason for an active campaign for tbe  protection of birds. The united  States Congress has passed an act  for the protection of migratory birds,  and interested parties are bringing  the matter before the attention of  the Canadian government.  Apart, altogether from the practical-view of bird life, there is the sentimental side. What would' Canada  be like without our feathered friends?  If we could no longer look forward to  the arrival of the first spring robin,  or of the wren, of the wild canary,  something would be missing iroin  our lives which we could not replace  This is a subject which should engage the attention of school beards  and teachers. The pupils, should be  taught to protect our feathered frit-nds  and their nests. The Boy Scout movement has taken up the protection of  bird life and in their hands trood work  is being done. ,;  CEDAR COTTAGE PRESBYTERIAN  CHURCH  Rev. J. O. Madill, Pastor.

Wilson, Rector  CUT OVER TIMBER  AREAS UNPROTECTED  The Young Growth Should be Cared  for in the Interests of the Future  ���������Revenues Will Suffer.  Thousands of square miles of non-  agricultural   lands  in   Eastern   Canada, suitable only for timber production, have been so completely devastated by repeated fires that the forest  growth  has  been utterly destroyed.  Almost   everywhere,   the   efforts   at  forest  fire  protection    are    concentrated upon  the remaining areas of  merchantable  timber,  while the cut-  over lands are, for the most part, neglected.    As a natural result, the future  forest  revenues  of  the  several  provinces   are   seriously    jeoparized,  since it is inevitable that the financial returns from the cutting of virgin  timber must' decrease    through    the  gradual exhaustion of these supplies,  leaving the balance to be secured from  operations  on  lands  previously  cut  over.   Not only will there be loss in  prospective stumpage  dues    but    in  ground  rent  also.    Lumbermen  are  not so devoid of business judgment  as to continue paying ground  rent,  after the removal of the virgin crop,  upon lands so completely .ruined by  fire that there is ho young growth  left to assure a future profit through  retention, of the limits.    As a matter  of fact, the    tendency    toward    the  abandonment of cut over timber limits' is almost universal in some sections and will certainly continue and  increase unless fires are kept out.  Repeated forest fires not only destroy the young growth, but the seed  trees as well, thus preventing the reproduction of the more valuable  species.

X.A1TJ} ACT  %  *$***************<~&***^  'In any discussion of the protection of bird life in Canada, considerable opposition has always been  manifested by the agricultural interests. It is claimed that birds are responsible for great damage to maturing fruits, berries, tomatoes, etc.,  and, earlier in the season, to the seed  planted in the ground. This is true  to a certain .extent. But, as in the  study of any subject, there are two  sides to the bird protection question.  The damage to the fruit is visible to  the eye of the grower, and he consequently waxes wroth.  The other side of the subject is one  with which the agriculturist is less  familiar. Could the birds place their  daily food before those hostile to j  them, it would .readily be seen to  what extent they serve the interests  of those who are dependent upon the  products of the soil.  An analysis of the contents of the  stomachs 'of thousands of birds has  shown that 90 per cent, of the food  consisted of insects and 10 per cent,  of vegetable matter.' Upwards of 5,-  000 insects have been found in the  stomach of one..bird. It has been  estimated that the destruction by insects in Canada amounts to approximately fifty million dollars annually.  Last year the' tent caterpillar was  very prevalent; this year the army  worm has made its appearance and is  causing great loss to the farmers'in  certain sections.. It is known that,  with the decrease in the number of  birds   which annually   reach   Canada  Vancouver    fcanA   District���������District of  Coast   Itance 3.  TAKE NOTICE, that I, Agnes L.

GERMAN STRATEGY  Military expert writing in the Chicago Tribune  suggests that the German advance on French and  Belgian frontiers is only a point and that Kaiser  Wilhelm's real point of attack is St. Petersburg.  Having already defeated and bottled up the Russian fleet Germany has now complete mastery of  the Baltic. The Kattegat and narrow passages  leading to the Baltic will all have been heavily  mined so that Britain's fleet will not dare attempt the entry for a while at least. Meantime  the Kaiser's grande trmee will take St. Petersburg under shelter of the guns from Admiral Von  Tirpitz's fleet. Then having brought,Russia to  terms will turn swiftly into t������e North Sea and engage the British fleet. If successful it will put  German commerce back upon the seven seas, and  and the German army will then gradually wear  out France and Britain.  This article is backed up bV another on the  German control of the air by a scribe under nom  de plume of Espionage, from which we give the  following extracts:  Whatever the final outcome of the war, this is  certain:  Germany is going to surprise the world by her  mastery of the air.  For Germany and not France ranks first in  war ���������aviation. The ponderous dirigible, not the  fleet aeroplane, is the most destructive machine  that soars.  Jteady to Mtack London.  Germany stands ready to assail Paris, Warsaw, and even London by an attack from the air,  and the odds are against the defenders.  While. Frenchmen have been capturing the  prizes in aerial contests, Germany has been far  from idle. After experiments with every kind of  engine that soars the air she has abandoned the  newer, heavier than air creations for the dirigible  of ancient origin. This she Has made tbe deadliest  machine that flies.  J have worked as an itinerant mechanic on the  military air craft of every.nation of Europe.  Germany and France represent two distinct  and different types in the air fighting. France  stakes her all on the aeroplane. The Gnome motor is her foundation. Germans cannot duplicate  4t. The-Russian air: corps are ajraere shadow of _  the French system. Austria patterns her weak air  corps after Germany. England's system is a composite between the two without the perfection of*  either.  The dirigible is a fighting machine���������& dreadnought of the air.   And the aeroplane is a scout '  cruiser, and little else.  Why Dirigible Surpaisei -  Here, in brief, is why the dirigible surpasses  the aeroplane as a fighting machine:  It carries a crew of from ten to twenty-five  men to take observations and direct operations.  Can carry as much as twenty-five tons of  nitro-glycerine cartridges���������sufficient to demolish  Chicago.  Can hover over a city during night time in silence, and while slower, can outmanoeuver an  aeroplane, inasmuch as it can hold a stationary  position, while an aeroplane must keep moving.  Carries rapid fire guns which can be aimed  with deadly accuracy. '  An aeroplane carries four men at best. It cannot carry effective pieces or ordnance and cannot  drop bombs with any accuracy.  It can be heard and located by sound a mile  distant, while a dirigible painted sky color with  motors and lights shut off can neither be heard  nor seen at night at a distance of 700 feet.  This is all very well. Doubtless the "expert"  is at heart a German sympathizer, and the wish  may be father to the thought, but both "Military  Expert" and "Espionage" are confronted intheir  theories by facts that have already transpired.  1st.���������Germany has hurled 3 army corps  against the forts at Liege, and been repulsed 4  times with terrible slaughter.  2nd.���������Germany threatened Liege with one of  her terrible Zeppelins manned^ by 25 men, and  saw it destroyed by Garros, who rammed it with  his aeroplane.  3rd.���������Germany's commerce on the sea is-already on a fair way to destruction, and all her  .��������� colonies to  appropriation either by Britain or.  France.  It may be a fact that Germany has beaten and  perhaps destroyed the Russian 'fleet, land she  may already have landed, not 40,000 but 400.000  troops at Helsingfors on their way to St. Petersburg. If so ��������� it is only one more very definite  proof that Kaiser Wilhelm and his staff have gone  mad.  TOLSTOI'S VISION  We publish today the "Prophecy and last  message of Tolstoi," said to have been seen by  him in a vision and spoken as in a trance to his  grand niece, Countess Nastasia Tolstoi, and by  her communicated first to' Kiig Edward, Kaiser  Wilhelm and Czar Nicholas, and now given by her  to the world: r  "This is a revelation of events of a universal  character, which must shortly come to pass. Their  spiritual outlines are now before my eyes. I see  floating upon the surface of the sea of human  fate the huge silhouette of a nude woman. She  is���������with her beauty, her poise, her smile, her  jewels���������a super-Venus. Nations rush madly after  her, each of them eager to attract her especiallly.  But she, like an eternal courtesan, flirts with all.  In her hair ornament of diamonds and rubies, is  engraved her name:'"'Commercialism.' As alluring and bewitching as she seems, mueh destruction  and agony follow in her wake; Her breath, reeking of sordid transactions, her voice of metallic  character like gold, and her look of greed are so  much poison to the nations who fall victims to her  charms. '��������������������������� VV,:V/"?;- .-  "And behold, she has three gigantic arm3 with  three torches of universal corruption in her hand.  The first torch represents the flame Of war, that  the beautiful courtesan carries from city to  city and country to country. Patriotism answers  with flashes of honest flame, but the end is the  roar of guns and musketry.  "The second torch bears the flame of bigotry  and hypocrisy. It lights the lamps only in temp- t  les ancl on the altars of sacred institutions. It  carries the seed of falsity and_ fanaticism. ' It  kindles the minds that are still in cradles and follows them to their graves.  "The third torch is that of the law, that dangerous foundation of all unauthentic traditions,  which first does its fatal work in the family, then  sweeps through the larger worlds of literature,  art and statesmanship.  "The great conflagration will start "about  1912, set by the tiorch of the first arm in the countries of Southeastern Europe. It will develop  into a destructive calamity in 1913: In that year  I see Europe in flames and bleeding. I hear  the lamentations of huge battlefields. But about  the year 1915 a strange figure from the* North���������a  neV Napoleon���������enters the stage of the bloody  drama. He is a man of little militaristic training,  a writer or a journalist, but in his grip more of  Europe will remain, till 1925.. The end of the  great calamity will mark a ������ew political era for  the Old World. There will be left no empires and  kingdoms, but the world will form a federation  of the United States of Nations. There will remain only four great giants���������the Anglo-Saxons,  the Latins, the Slavs and the Mongolians.  "After the year 1925 I see a great'change in  religious sentiments. The second torch of the  courtesan has brought about the fall of the  church. The ethical idea has almost vanishe$.  Humanity is without the moral feeling. But,  then, a great reformer arises. He will dear tlie  world of tbe relics of monotheism and lay the  cornerstone of the temple of pantheism. God,  soul spirit, and immortality will be molten in a  new furnace, and I see the peaceful beginning of  an ethical era. The man determined to this mission is a Mongolian-Slav. He is already walking  the earth���������a man of active affairs. He. himself  does not now realize the mission assigned to him  by a superior power.  "And behold the flame "of the third torch  which has already begun to destroy, our family relation between woman and man is accepted as  a prosaic partnership of the sexes. Art has become realistic degeneracy. Political and religious N  distrubances have shaken the spiritual foundations of all nations. Only small spots here and  there have' remained untouched by those three  destructive flames. The anti-national-wars in .  Europe, the class war of America, and tlie race  wars in Asia have strangled progress for half a  century. But then, in the middle of this century,  I see a hero of literature and art rising from the  ranks of the Latins and purging the world of the  tedious stuff of the obvious. It is light of sym-.  holism that shall outshine the light of the polygamy of today, there will come a poetogamy���������  a, relation <5f the sexes based fundamentally upon  poetic conceptions of life.  "And I see the nations growing wiser, and realizing that the alluring woman of their destinies  is after all nothing but an illusion. There will be  a time when the world will have no use for armies,  hypocritical religions and degenerate art. Life is  evolution, and evolution is development from the  simple to the more complicated forms of the mind  and the body. I see the passing show of the  world drama in its present form, how it fades ,  like the glow of evening upon the mountains.  One motion of the hand of commercialism and a  new history begins."  INTERNATIONAL DRY  FARMING CONGRESS  The Ninth International Dry Farming Congress convenes at Wichita, Kansas, October 12-15,  and at the same time the International Soil Products Exposition and the Wichita Fair and Exposition, October 7-17, will be held.  It will be a place of abounding interest and  profit to those who are interested in the semi-  arid farming question. ���������  CONNAUGHT APARTMENTS  Corner Eighth avenue and Guelph street.

VANCOUVER EXPOSITION  HOTEL MEN OFFER BIG  PRIZES FOR BETTER ANIMALS  Additional Money for Vancouver Exhibition  Vancouver's hotel men presented the Vancouver Exhibition Association with the sum of  $200 to be used as prizes, and this money will be  awarded to the best milk producer, to the team  over 1,400 pounds, and the best team under 1,400  pounds.   .The prize list now exceeds $60,000.  The Vancouver Licensed Hotelkeepers Association put up the money, and like good business  men they enclosed their perfectly good cheque  for the amount.  They decided that they would offer a First  prize of $50 to the owner of that cow which produced, the best milk at the Exhibition grounds  during Fair week. The remainder of the inoney  was divided between two classes of agricultural  horses.  These horses must be owned by bona fide  farmers. Several substantial prizes have already  been put up for competition in other classes. /The  best agricultural team of over 1,400 pounds will  be awarded a prize of $100, and the prize for the  best agricultural team under 1,400 pounds will be  .given a $50 prize.  The time for making entries expires August  . 20, and judging by present indications more entries than ever before made will be received this  year. Every department of the Fair, and they  are numerous indeed, shows an average improvement of one hundred per cent. Thev Fair "will be  held in spite of the war, and only a German invasion' of Vancouver during the Fair rweek could  stop it.   But this idea is preposterous.T  PATRIOTIC OFFER  Amongst other evidences of the patriotic  spirit in Vancouver the following should be mentioned:     i  H. H. Stevens, Vancouver:���������  "Offer to Government free   use   Vancouver,  Arena for military and storage purposes during  war period." -  Frank A. Patrick, Victoria.  Vancouver will, should the war attain world  wide proportions, undoubtedly become a great  military depot. Indeed, the sooner that.25,000  troops are concentrated at this stragetic point to  guard the great main lines terminating here, the  better for Canada.  WAR'S PITIFUL SIDE  August 12.���������Four guns, 2 of heavy calibre,  and 2 lighter, arrived in Vancouver today, and  are being mounted in selected points for defense  of harbor.  Our three regiments are now mobilized and  in quarters at Arena, Armory and Exhibition  grounds. The Naval Reserve is also on war footing and the B. C. Horse is completing its ranks  and equipment.  From every quarter of Canada comes the story  of intense and patriotic activity, and Canada will  undoubtedly do her share in the defense of the  Empire and that right quickly.  Most of the volunteers are assured of their  positions being retained for them, and employers  are granting mostly half pay.during absence, and  in many instances full pay.  WAR'S PITIFUL SIDE  There is, however* a pitiful side to war that we  must not forget in the midst of the enthusiasm of  getting ready. \  Many���������-very many���������bread winners will be  taken away, and mothers, young and aged, left  with scant support  Yesterday whilst on a car the Seaforths  marched past with pipes and drum, admired of  all on board. But one young mother with her  babe at breast burst into tears, evidently the  father was in line.

SUGAR 1  ��������� *  * *  **************************  No article of daily consumption  has gloomed so largely in the eyes of  the housewife during the last week as  that of sugar. On the first, pronouncement of war, an apparent advance in price was made by the retail shopkeepers; The accusation has  been made that this was caused by  the manufacturers' desire to profit by  the war. This is contradicted, however, by the statement in the. press  under the signature of B. T. Rogers.  Some time ago sugar was being  imported' into British Columbia from  China, and was sold at a slightly  lower rate than the British Columbia  sugar. Chinese sugar is manufactured by cheap labour, and to stop this  importation and keep British Columbia white labour employed, the B. C.  sugar refiners sold their sugar at  practically cost. No manufacturer can  continue to operate at a loss, and the  price is,now what it was before the  Chinese sugar was imported. The  British Columbia sugar is sold to  the wholesaler allowing only a reasonable manufacturer's profit, which  does not allow for any contingency  such as cessation of supply of raw  material through interruptions of  trade routes.  Under the circumstances one would  naturally suppose that the .commission men of this city would see it to  their advantage to encourage all local industries, but this is not the .case.  We have the city appointing an Industrial Commissioner to try and locate industries in Vancouver. The  Industrial Bureau work much along  the same lines, whilst the Board of  Trade is ever alive to the necessity  of providing work for the people of  Vancouver. The British Columbia  Manufacturers' Association are expending large sums of money to  bring before the eyes of the public  the necessity of encouraging home industries, and never was this more  thoroughly required than at the present time, when we are suffering from  trade depression.  The public should demand sugar  manufactured in British Columbia,  and see that they get it. This is true  patriotism.  *-m<*<A*-**<m,*,m������*������-*,***������gf _iuii|ihm{).������i|i.������.    .������i������|ii������.ifr.������.i$ ������iij4 .iifr.4j.iSi.������l||r. igi m<* ������ ^>il������n **���������* '  CHOICE NEW HAY fOR SALE  ���������AT ���������  F.T.

Han fordes  till hospitalet, dar de, endast lin-  driga skadorna forbundos. Ben  net ar till yrket kypare och hans  handling ar en foljd af missmod.  Drunknad i   Kitsilano   Beach.  Robert Martin, boende a 1438 8th  Ave. West forlorade pa sondagen  lifvet vid badning i Kitsilano  Beach. '  Martin som var en medelalders  man, badade i sallskap med tva  vanner, och yid pass 150 fot fran  stranden anfolls han af kramp  och sjonk pa 7 fots vatten.  Martin lar vara gift och efter-  lamnar familj. ,  I hvad man skall kriget ef fekte-  ra Vancouver. Medan krisen i  Europa annu icke i namnvard  grad haft nagot inflytande pk Van  couver markes emellertid storre  konservatism i bankaffarer och ett  sakta aftagande i den allmanna  handeln.  Mangen begransar sma utgifter  till det nbdvandigaste tills orolig-  heterna igen skingra sig.  Fran val underrattat hall ar  man emelleraid benagen att tro att  da kriget utbryter pa fullt allvar  skulle affarsforhallande i Vancouver mycket forbattras.  Sjofarten pa, Vancouver ar tro-  ligen den som lider forsta afbrott  fore alia andra brancher harsta-  des. Stadskontrollor Baldwin  yttrade haromdagen att med krigets allmanna utbrytande skulle  inga "money by laws" framlag-  gas i januari.  Att gora detta vore lonlbst da  bonds" icke skulle kunna saljas  till nagot pris i Europa.  Fyra till fern manader skulle  forflyta innan man. ens tankte pa  bonds och d& vore mahanda kriget ofver. Om nationerne skulle  bortslosa $50^000,000 om dagen pa  kriget sa skulle under alia forhal-  landen rantorna stiga.  Mayor Baxter var emellertid me-  ra fortrostansfull och rader till  att icke ga ofver bron forr an man  natt den.  Om Storbritannien bortsopade  tyska flottan fran varldsytan  skulle England vara den sakraste  plats i varlden for kapitalplase-  ring. Dar skulle da finnas till-  rackligt med guld fast att rantorna blefvo nog storre. Personer  med kapital borde icke draga fbr-  del af den financiella krisen och  forsumma att betala sina skulder.  Att ga till landets forsvar ar  endast en vag att vara patriotisk  och alia kunna icke gora detta.  Det ar lika mycket en mans plikt  mot, sitt land att hjalpa den som  ar i behof af panningar f or narva-  rande.  Att starta en panik just nu skul  le skaka grundvalen i det stora  kejsardomet.
