And this is what every Canadian over 16 years  of age ou'ght to know as quickly as it caf> be effected. .        -   ,  There are multitudes of men in Canada who  i'cannot go to the front, until at least a sterner call  i has come than any yet issued. There,'are many  ['who cannot give time to training in rif$e shooting,  'week���������and who care nothing for th.Wrappings of  the 0ordinary military corps���������but tljwre are none  fcwho canont give time to training in rifle shooting,  providing that proper facilities are supplied.  For many years back the clubs in London and  other city centers have had patent ranges on the  I club premises which train men up to 1,000 yards,  land with these installed in Vancouver, the busiest  ' business man could find time to train himself and  then have Saturday outings once a month, at the  (butts.   Certainly .every man in Canada should be  .enrolled in one way or another.   We have ihe  I bestlhomeland on < earth today, and the mats that  can and is not willing to enroll and train himself  so as to be part of her defense is not worthy of  fisher sheltering care. '���������  No one Icnows today what is coming- -the  [vworld has gone war mad' and anything might  [happen.

Several property owners in Sheffield have decided to let the wives of  all, men at the front live rent free  during' the war, and the doctors are  giving free attendance.  The Foreign Legion for Great Britain, which is being raised in London,  will include Italians, Danes, Greeks,  Portugese, Spaniards, Poles, Swedes,  and Norwegians.

NOTARY PUBLIC  Dow, Fraser Trust Co,  122 Hastings St., W.  2313 Main Street  Between 7th and 8th Aves.  McKay Station, Burnaby  A SEAFORTH HIGHLANDER  THE MEN WHO COMMAND  UNDER GENERAL FRENCH  A FRENCH KITCHENER  * The name of General Joffre, Chief of the General Staff of the French Army, was practically-  unknown to us in British Columbia before the outbreak of war. Yet General Joffre is like our own  Kitchener���������an organiser of victory. If France  had had a, Joffie in 1870 the Germans would not  have won.  His career has been exceptional from the first.  When war was declared in 1870 he had scarcely  finished one year at the "Polytechnique," which  corresponds to the British Royal Military Academy at Woolwich. At 18 he was given his commission, and as an artillery subaltern took part  in the defence of Paris during the siege.      \  . JJe attracted attention; be was employed in  the reconstructing of, the Paris fortifications  which followed immediately^ upon the war. The  forts at Enghien were of his designing, and one  day' Marshal MacMahon, after inspecting his  work, put a hand upon his shoulder and said, "I  congratulate you, Captain Joffre." Captain at  twenty-two!  So well did he conduct himself here that he  wfis sent to Portarlier (on the Swiss frontier���������  the Southern Gateway into France) to assist with  the now famous defences there. ".This is all very  well," he said, "but J don't want to make fortifications all my life. I want to coraimand troops."  In Tonkin (French Jndo-China) his. opportunity  came. He was senl into the field, and 'he^ came  back victorious every" time. After this he won  distinction in Formosa, in Madagascar, in Dahomey, and the������ in Timbuctoo, whHher be led the  remains of the broken column of ColoueJ Bonn������er  after-he had-put-new spiritinto rthe-menv^lrasr  by seizing every chance of foreign service, he  had learned his profession in the field. Then, iu  the middle 'nineties^ he came back to France and  went steadily upwards, working hard all the  time, until he was in 1911 asked to take the chief  command. - ^  General Joffre maintains that the warlike  genius of the French is as strong as ever. The  duty of a French General, he believes, is to prepare and use the old French dash and vigor to  the full.  In the field as in his office at the Ministry of  War he is "as hard as nails."   He gives orders  and expects them to be carried out exactly: if  they are not there is trouble.   He may sympathise  with the incompetent, but he cannot overlook failure.   After the manoeuvres of last year he dismissed five generals.   Paris gasped.   Every garrison in France got excited..   Nothing like it had  ever happened before.   General Joffre said nothing.   The five generals had failed; it was essential for France's security that they should be deprived of their   commands.    They   disappeared  from the active list.   France, which had known  little of this masterful Chief of the General Staff  before, suddenly became aware that its armies  were being reorganised by an exceptional man.  General Joffre does not believe in flashes of  genius. He knows that long and careful preparation is necessary. He has been at the head of the  Army-for three years. Never for a single waking  hour in those three years has he forgotten the  purpose for which he was appointed���������to prepare  for the struggle in which France is engaged today.   -    . .;���������..���������  Talking about the British Army a few months  . ago, he said: "I have never seen it.   I should like  to see it.   I must find an opportunity."   He did  not think then that the opportunity would come  so soon! -  France and Britain, and .for that part the  whole world outside of Germany, are happy in  possessing a Joffre and a Kitchener in supreme  command of the Allied Forces. Both fought the  Germans as young men in 1870. Their "minds  must have been then indelibly impressed and in  all probability both these men���������the most efficient  of their race���������have hardly gone to bed once in  40 years without conning over the chances of  , meeting the old foe and defeating them.  At the battle of Doorn^kopje Smith-Dorrien  was in command of the Canadians and the Gordon  Highlanders. v  His brigade was moving forward, fo attack the  main Boer position, when his Canadian corps and  the Gordons, being eager to get to; close quarters  with the eneiny, dashed forward so impetuously,  up the hill that they got out of touch with the  remainder of the brigade -and*were; on the point  of being surrounded.  Realizing this,8Gen. Smith-Dorrien, utterly regardless of the heavy fire of the invisible foe,  expert marksmen all, set off as hard as his'horse  could gallop, straight across the enemy's front,  in order to turn the Canadians and Highlanders  back.  The onlookers gazed with amazement as the  hail of bullets plowed up the earth all around the  gallant rider. He came through, however, wonderful to relate, without a scratch, and, having  succeeded in his object .returned to his position  in the rear of his troops to direc]t their further  operations.  In answer tp protests as to the risk he had  just run, he made the characteristic reply:  "Well, someone had to stop the Canadians  and. the Gordons, and I could not send anyone  else to face that fire, could It"  For this he was recommended for the Victoria'"  Cross.  Some twenty years previously he was likewise  recommended for the Victoria Cross. It was for  conduct in the Zulu war. ���������  One day, while put studying the lay; of ���������; the.  land, he was suddenly set upon: by a body of  Zulus.- He put spurs to .his horse and was galloping away with the enemy after him, when he came  upon a fellow officer on foot, who asked him to  let him hang on to his stirrup so as to help him  along. <  SmithrDorrien consented - and they covered  some ground in this fashion, when the officer,  thoroughly fagged out, entreated him to allow  him to get on his horse behind him.  Smith-Dorrien got down in order to help the  man up,' and had no sooner landed him' in the  saddle than the horse straightway bolted, leaving  its owner to the tender, mercies of the fast  approaching enemy.- . .  Nothing daunted, Smith-Dorrien, who at Har-  row had taken many prizes for running, sprinted  ahead with the Zulus, who are among the swiftest  and longest-winded* runners in the world, unpleasantly close upon his heels, until at last he  spurted into camp.and safety.  " This is the loan that commands under General  French today.  <.- The other man is General Sir Douglas Haig,  a cavalryman from.the crown of his head to the  soles of his feet, and spent several years in India  as inspector-general of cavalry.  He was also chief of staff there to the commander-in-chief; distinguished himself as chief of  staff to Field Marshal Sir John French in the  Boer war, and went through all the Soudan  campaign, including the final battle of Omdur-  man, under Kitchener.  BETWEEN THE DEYll AND THE PEEP SEA  One of the striking episodes of the present  turmoil in Europe is the confiscation of the home  of Prince yon Blucher, great-grandson of the  famous Marshall Blucher that helped Wellington  finish Napoleon on the field of Waterloo, Belgium, .  just ninety-nine years ago.  For 25 years back the Prince has been owner  of=the4sland 6f-Herm, one of therChannel Islandv���������  He bought it:under a mortgage held by one of  the German banks and has spent a large sum of  money upon his residence there, which dominates  the view.of sea and land in every direction. The  entire population is about 100, all being in the  employ of Prince von Blucher. and mostly  Germans.  There is only ~one landing on the island and  no one is permitted to land without first securing  a special permit, often quite hard to obtain.  The laws and often despotic orders, of the  Prince were enforced by the Chief Boatman and  Head Gamekeeper, who jointly held the office of  Chief Constable.  Naturally the British Government could not  tolerate such conditions under present circumstances, all the more a������ it was reported that the  German retainers of the Prince were reservists  /ind armed with rifles, gatling guns and even with  pieces of large ordinance.  So the Prince and his entire dependance were  expelled and the property confiscated to the  Crown.    '  The Prince resents this confiscation all the  more bitterly in that he has been an ex-patriate  for more than 40 years, having quarreled with  the Kaiser and hating him and all things about  him with a violent hatred. It is reported that  the Prince, with the present princess and her  family, are on their way ';to the United States,  where they will reside until present troubles are  overpast.  LOUVAIN.  Louvain, the Belgium city rased by the  Germans, was not so much an art emporium as  it was the great centre of the Jesuit propaganda,  on earth. Here, forty odd years ago, was inaugurated the.scheme to train journalists to capture  the press of the English-speaking world and the  then avowed plan was to educate a eorp of trained  journalists so that a onan could be placed in a  prominent position upon the staff of every daily  paper of any note in the English-speaking world.  The tone of the press during the past years  seems to point to a successful issue of this  campaign.

Acting as spokesman for  the party, H. S. Norelius, Scandinavian correspondent for the American Press Association, expressed surprise at the marvellous development  of this section of the West.  "Nothing can detract from the excellence of your spil," he said, "and  nothing can retard your progress.  The rest of the world doesn't know  enough abou^Canada. In many cases  it has. been misrepresented, and for  our part we' now know the real truth."  Mr. Norelius also stated that Scandinavians in the States now number over  4,000,000, and that the increase due  to immigration from Norway, Sweden and benmark is being continually  augmented. The Scandinavians maintain 126 newspapers in their native  languages in the United States, and  it is inferred that the present tcur  of ihe newspaper men will prove to be  good advertising for the Swift Current  district.   .

Cheques totalling ������230,000 were paid to Lord  Plymouth, who had made himself  responsible for the purchase price-to  save the palace for the nation. The  palace and park are now vested in  trustees for the use of the people. Sir  David Burnett, who was elected chairman of the trustees, says that he has  offered the palace and park to the  War office for use as ta temporary  hospital. His action is heartily approved by the trustees.  '****<<***************4.**********^^  GERMAN PIETY.  Papa Wilhelm's letter congratulating -the  <3rown Princess over her husband's first victory  reminds one of the telegrams the old King Wilhelm sent to Queen Augusta. "Punch" at that  time broke out into verse about it as follows:  "By grace divine, my:dear Augusta,  We've had another awfjil buster:  Ten thousand Frenchmen sent below.  Praise God from whom all blessings flbw."  A MODERN ABSALOM  LAND VALUES IN WAR TIMES.  / A hopeful view in reference to the war and  its probable effect on the financial situation is  taken generally by Western business men whose  judgment always carries weight. Regarding the  possibilities for a long-continued struggle such  as might paralyze business and caujse a universal  financial panic, such an outcome is too remote to  merit serious consideration, these men assort.  " It is unthinkable," said one today. '' Take  the case of Germany, for instance. In normal  years Germany imports about one billion and a  ���������half dollars more of agricultural products and  foodstuffs than she exports. With the British and  French fleets already in command of the seas how  long can Germany hold out t A half-starved army  js not a very good fighting machine.  ."''With Germany dependent oit Austria for her  food supply, the peace treaties would have v to  follow; and this outcome can be postponed but a  few months at farthest."  v, In regard to real estate values in Canada as  affected by the war, the same authority called  attention to the fact that these have been steadily  maintained for months past in the face of adverse  conditions on all sides. "And why?" he continued. . '' For the simple reason that these values  are intrinsic and not merely speculative. It is a  safe inference, therefore/ that the productive  possibilities of Canada cannot be<destroyed by a  few .months' fighting in Europe. The land will  still be here when the fighting is all oyer, and it  will be in demand more than it ever was. After,  the war I look to see another big emigration movement from Europe to Canada; and it is hard to  see how land values���������and by that I mean intrinsic  values���������can suffer in any, way from the present  crisis."  AS TO THE BANKS.  (The. Regina Province Standard)  All the assistance which the Government of  -Canada is endeavoring to give to the people  through' the medium of the banks is being held  up by the banks for their own additional security.  The banks are inviting reprisals thereby, which,  unless we mistake the temper of the Canadian  people, will not be long delayed. . . . Ordinary,  commercial credits have been cut oftV Every*  business in Canada is suffering. Farmers suffer���������  the security of the wheat, which is better than  gold, is no longer taken. Municipal governments  suffer. Canada is as badly off, in fact, as if she  were without banking facilities. The. assistance  the Government extended has not reached the  people���������has not passed beyonfl the control of the'  banks. Credit is practically non-existent, and-  without credit the business fabric cannot hold  together. . . . The banks have" been extended  privileges by the Government never before, in all  Canadian history, allowed them. After September first they can issue "paper money" in addition to the present issues, equal to fifteen per cent,  of their combined capital and reserve. Bank notes  have already been made legal tender., The banks'  can .receive, from the Pominion Government;V  Pominion bills for securities deposited with them.  It was not. intended by the Government that  these tremendous advantages should be possessed  -by the banks for their own uses.   Those steps;  were taken solely for ther purpose of aicling-the4  people of Canada to maintain tbe general structure of business.   It ^as intended^ that the banks  should be in position to carry on their ordinary  business of supplying the country's needs in the:  way of credit.   If those steps had not been taken'  the banks would have  been  justified  in  their  present stand, to some   extent  at least.   T%ey-  would have had to protect their own interests;  The Pominion Government took upon itself the "  protection of the interests, of the banks, so that  the banks could protect the country's interests.  But. protected in everyway though they are, the  banks are accepting all the assistance tendered  them and passing none of it on.  SPECIAL FOR LABOR DAY  We think that even the union Wn will ap  predate the humor of the following bit of vers*  which just appeared:      ' ...  ' , V  All his life in a union shop,  He'd daily earned his bread;  ,   They buried him in a union grave,  When the union man was dead.  He had a union doctor,  *  And he had a union nurse;   .  He had a union coffin,  And he had a union hearse.  They put him in a union'grave,  When he was good and dead;  They put a union monument   *  Just above his head. u  -���������"'��������� ���������     "V v ������.��������� ������������������ -."  And the nhe went to heaven,  But to stay he didn't care;  He kicked because he said that same  Non-union men,were there.  He went down to the Other Place,  .,   And there produced his card,  Then Satan drew an earnest face  And studied good and hard. .  And then he l,iught, his hands did rub,  Till he thought he'd nev������_r stop;  "Lord bless my soul," said Beelzebub,  "Why, this is an open shop!"  The Boston American, just to hand,  contains the following remarkable article off the German Kaiser from the  pen of Mr.'C. O'Connell Galyin:���������  William II., Emperor of Germany  and King of Prussia, up to date the  most powerful monarch in Europe, as  he is proudest and hautiest of men,  has had one ambition since he came  to the use of reason. That ambition  is, that in the cloistered, aisles of  Westminster abbey, he might one  day sit in the chair, in which English  rulers have sat for a thousand years  with like purpose, and bowing his  head have placed upon it the Crown of  Great Britain.  William of Germany has hugged  that hope close to his heart ever since  the hour, in HJ88, when he ascended  the throne of the Kaiser, as successor to his lamented father,. Frederic,  the Noble and the Good.  A withered artti is the source of  William's anti-English hate. When  his mother, Princess Victoria, -eldest  daughter, of the English Queen, was  expecting his. entrance into life, her  mother, Queen Victoria, came over  from Windsor to be with her daughter  in the hour of trial. An elderly English doctor, who was in charge, lost  his head and his nerve in the crisis  and Princess Victoria's boy came into  the world maimed for life.  'The day William ascended the German throne/ when his universally  loved father died, a victim to cancer,  a shiver, confined at first to ,high  state circles, was felt in England.  Before many years certain things got  noised abroad and .soon the shivering  grew epidemic. The epidemic has  never been stayed. England shivers  today in her every nerve and fibre at  the mention 6f the Kaiser's name.  Diplomacy, strained at times to the  breaking point, has held off the evil  hour when the Kaiser was to lend attentive ear to1 the call of his ambition. The late Edward VII., uncle  of the Kaiser, made many trips between London and the Continent, going on one occasion;'even to Berlin,  tp placate his fiery ^chew and plead  with him not to break, the bonds of  peace: Edward's last'illness had its  source in a violent scene that took  place in the palace at Potsdam between the two rulers, And when Edward returned to London after the  trip all who saw him leave the train  at Charing Cross station knew that  his days were numbered.  In the few years that have elapsed  since then there has been no one in  the royal circle bf England strong  enough to influence William into  paths of lasting peace. He was biding his hour.   That hour has come.  William of Germany would \ have  struck at England three y������iars ago,  when she stood alone in her "magnificent isolation." But the astute  English ministers, fed with the news  by a watchful foreign office, got wind  of the move.  Haldane, the then English war secretary, was dispatched overnight to  Paris to see what France had to offer in exchange for England's vast  navy. . Haldane was satisfied with  wjLat_J__u saw.^ JH������l .jretujm;:tp^Lo*-  don,.. reports to Asquith, the Prime  Minister, what he had seen and heard.  "All right," said the Prime Minister,  "Wire France we go in with her." And  the compact was made.   That compact \>  drove William to the heights of frenzy.  The night of the day whetf-the bargain was struck, between England and  France, Mr. Asquitlr Jsent Chancellor  Lloyd George down to Woolwich to  speak as the Cabinet mouthpiece at  a Liberal banquet. He was told what  to say and hej_aid it.  That Lloyd George speech at Woolwich made all Europe get ready to  close up Its shutters. Straight from  the shoulder the British .Chancellor  hurled defiance after defiance Into the  teeth of the German Kaiser. He was  told to come on, to fight or stop talking; that England was ready for him  and the sooner the guns barked, the  better England would like it.  The haughty William gasped as he  read Lloyd George's words of challenge. Then he Bmelt a rat and he  sent trusted secret service men. up  into Paris to find out all they could  and whether England and France had  got together, which William suspected waa the Becret of England being so  saucy.  The agents came back to Berlin. The  story they told him made his face  grow pale.. They had found that  France had quietly and silently, with-  by day. and suffering the horrors of  nightmare whenever the "War Lord"  at Potsdam speaks an angry word or'*>  a German   airship   flies   across   the '  Straits ot Dover. _  Germany, whose ruler has been cha-''  fing for this fight for a score of years,  knowing France's feeling towards her  land as the Kaiser does for "& reason  that is personal V and also because  Britannia owns all the fairest and richest colonial possessions on the globe's  Burface, leaving no room for the.flag  of the Teuton.  These are the forces. None mightier have faced the world since the rule  of the Caesars. Once this triple struggle, starts, with* Russia and maybe  Italy aiding England and France, the  task before Germany and her allies  will be terrifflc.  Neither will it be a holiday for England, for upon her will fall the full  brunt of fighting Germany at sea.  From the moment.the first gun is  fired between the English ; and the  German fleets, England's navy officers will have their pace set hot as the  stride of a thoroughbred racing to the  front over the turf and hurdles of the  Derby racecourse.  The" possibilities of that Anglo-German .fight on the seas are too appalling to think about or to measure.  Has England a Nelson to-day? If;  such a man exists let him -come forth*  and declare" himself,   for   his   work  out any. fuss or parade, been working !" ^2^VTT^       ^  ? ��������� .  wonders with her army.   They found! l^lle^r  that France had organized and was at  that moment ready to use the most  perfect artillery service in the world.  Light machine guns with almost uncountable firing power, mounted on  motors and motor cycles, making every  man a fort in himself. All the old  ideas .discarded, every new idea adopted. They found a chain of forts across  the Franco-German frontier, each  link In the chain a miniature Gibraltar. > <  -  Most sinister of all, those German  agents found France the owner of the  greatest aerial army in the world. -  William of Germany paused &b he  heard those reports. When the Investigators had finished their .tale hia  mind waa changed. Then came his decision. It was to wait a few years.  And he postponed action on Lloyd  George's speech. '  But night snd day the flreB glowed  ill the great Kropp arsenals and the  mighty Nesmltb hammers in the imperial shipyard* pounded out the armor plates tbat were to hurry along  the building of tbe Kaiser's mightiest  fleet   '���������  England responded to Germany's  naval activity with a naval programme  of her own so stupendous and so costly as to literally "stagger humanity."  Tbe great arsenal at Woolwich, the  shipyards at Portsmouth and Devon*  port and Newcaatie-on-Tyne were ���������given dreadnoughts and super-dread-  noughts to build as freely as if the orders were children's toys for the  Christmas trade. ���������  France, with her superb army, is all  ready to fight, so that she may wipe,  from her escutcheon the red stains of  1870, her loss of Alsace and Lorraine,  and Jhe infliction by Germany of a  war indemnity which Bismarck meant  and felt would beggar France forever,. In which be was mistaken.  jBngland,J_it^M  largest and   most   powerful   in-the  world, Is sick and tired of shivering  w m Piii m mm into  The man of the moment, not only  in Italy, but also in Europe, is the  Marquis di San Giuliano, Minister for  Foreign Affairs. His voice and views  more than those of any other man except King Victor Emmanuel will decide the. immediate course of Italy's  foreign policy. The most difficult  and delicate problem that has ever  faced an Italian statesman since Italy  became free-and united faces him today. But the author and prosecutor  pf the campaign against Tripoli is  not the man to shrink from it.  The marquis is a Sicilian of Norman descent, some sixty-three years  old, a senator and an inveterate student of international affairs. In  nearly thirty-five years of political  life he has held but four offices. His  appointment in 1905.as Foreign Minister was not well received in Vienna  and Berlin. He-knew far too muelr  for the comfort of his country's allies.    '  Happily;  the  King, who  is Italy's  wisest statesman, and the marquis see  eye to* eye. ; Both worked together to;  make the Tripolitan adventure not  merely a, success, but the beginning  of. a new Italian risorgimento (resurrection). Neither is a Jingo;" neither  seeks or wishes to revive those colonizing enterprises that received so  great a check at Adowa; but each is  convinced that Italian interests can  no longer be maintained by a merely  negative policy.  What line they will together map  out in the present crisis will be known  in a very short time. Meanwhile, it  is werth remembering that when the  Marquis di San Giuliano was the Italian ambassador in London some six  or seven years ago he never disguised his faith that the old friendship between Great Britain and Italy  should be something more than a tradition and should be cemented by  practical co-operation between the  two countries in the sphere of European politics. >       ���������"-:���������<  AN ECHO FROM DR. WILD  Mr. G.-VG. Rublow, chief tdairy instructor for Eastern Ontario, asserts  in the Peterboro Review that he heard  Dr. Wild, of Toronto, more than a  quarter of a" century agp predict a  war in 1914, which would involve  practically every European country,  that. Great Britain would be forced  into it, and that the prominent battles  would be between the Britishers and  the Germans. Modern fighting equipment would be tried out and the Germans would only be conquered after  the  most  stubborn  resistance.    The  climax would be reached in a great  battle in the city of London, which  would flush the.- gutters with human  blood. j '  Rev. Dr. Wild often declared he  was not a prophet or the son of a  prophet, but' based his arguments  upon the records found in the great  Pyramid of Gizeh in Egypt.  Dr. Wild of course believed and  taught, like all who hold that Britain  today represents I sreal of old���������that  the British arms would finally  triumph.  cinwnilii  ���������;, Below the the figures published by;'  one of the, aggresive Moral - Reform  Associations. ; This part o'f the-world  doe^ not seem to beV growing .good  at a prodigious rate:���������,  V "The American yearly expenditures  are as follows:  White   Slavery  .........::..;.$3,000;OQd,000  Intoxicating Liquors ...... 2*000,000.0003  Tobacco  1,200,000,000  Jewelry ..........*.... 1,800,000,000  Church work (at home) _   250,000,000  Confectionery     200,000,000  Soft Drinks ...;.......    120,000,000  Tea and Coffee .'.     100,000,000 :  Millinery   ....: :.............

The message  which- His Royal Highness the. Duke  of Connaught sent from the Government House at Ottawa to the Van-:  couver Exhibition is as follows:���������  ' "I have much pleasure in declaring  the Exhibition opened and wish it  every success.   Arthur." ���������  The message which His Royal  Highness sent was promptly and suitably acknowledged.  The programme for the opening  consisted of addresses by President  J. J. Miller, His Worship T. S. Baxr  ter, Jonathan Rogers, Rev. Leslie- Pid-  geon and James Finlay and a number  of musical selections were rendered.  The Western Triple Choir, under the  directorship of Mr. George Taggart,  rendered "O, Canada," "God of Our  Fathers," "Heart of Oak," "God, the  All Terrible," -"Canadian Born,"  "Rule Britannia." Solos were rendered: "The Dear Homeland," by  Mr. John Jenkinson; "Land of Hope  and Glory," Mrs. H.-H. Roberts;  "Neptune," Walter Stevenson; "The  Veteran's Song," Mr. John Jenkin  son; "Marching Song." British Pat  riotic song, "Rule Britannia," by Miss  Gretta Harvie.  The. speeches and the building were  notably. Imperialistic, and Presidt-.it  Miller in opening the cereuio ly,  pointed out some of the d:fficu3tics  under which the Exhibition had .la-  bored to bring about a fair in sp'te  of the fact that war was in progress  and was having a marked effect on  Vancouver's commercial life.  Mr. Miller's speech was an address  of welcome. He said that others had  seen fit to cancel their exhibitions in  the "Northwest, but Vancouver, with  he* characteristic    spirit, had    gone  forward with its plans and preparations'and the result was now apparent.  He told of the Vancouver inhibition Association's labors on behalf 01  the British Empire-r-of how ;t had  turned_over its grounds to the_ Irish  Fusiliers and of its efforts to i ...ike  Friday night , night, September .4,  which .is the opening night of, the  Horse Show, one of '^Jie best of the  series, so that the proceeds from the  Horse ShoVr, whiSh wi)l be turned  over to the Vancouver War Fund, Will  be very large.  Mr. J. J. Miller theri ��������� proceeded to  tell the Exhibition, visitors how big  and extensive the exhibition was. He  cited briefly'. something of the nature of the exhibits in the various,  buildings and their educative value.  Mr. Miller then gave place to His  Worship Mayor Baxter.  The Mayor had sincere praise for  the confidence expressed by the Vancouver. Exhibition Association, ' and  uttered some words of appreciation  for the work 'and the plans of the  Vancouver Exhibition Association in  proceeding with its Exhibition in the  face of what seemed at the start to  be insuperable difficulties. He said  that he hoped everybody recognized  that by doing this, the Vancouver  Exhibition Association performed a  duty, a patriotic duty, and a fearless  action. He said he hoped the citizens of Vancouver would show the  Vancouver. Exhibition Association  that its confidence was not misplaced.  He said it was a duty to keep trade  and commerce alive. He continued  that we would not all have to risk  our lives in war, and yet we are afraid  ���������:some of us���������to risk our dollars.  The Mayor then went on to tell of  the actions of a very large section of  the community in hoarding their  money. He again congratulated the  Exhibition Association for its confidence in Vancouver, and said the  Board of Directors recognized their  duty to keep things going and that  they kept things going.  He then went on.with a request to  the people assembled to turn out to  night again, and help swell the Vancouver War Fund by filling the pavilion, the proceeds of which will be,  turned over to the W^r Fund.  Before he ������������t down the Mayor said  that he* would help all he could to  see that the Vancouver Exhibition  Association would nofhaveto ~face~a  deficiency'at the close of the Exhibition.- '    '������������������',���������V/ "'.-..  Mr. Jonathan Rogers, president of  the Vancouver Board of Trade, Rev.  E. - Leslie" Pidgeon, President of the  Rotary Club;v James Finlay? President* of the Industrial Bureau; then  followed with short addresses.  During the evening Mr. A., D.  Kean, Chief *of the Cowboys, led 40  of his cowboys into the arena and  marched around to considerable applause. The men made a brave snow,  and it was remarked on the platform  that if the Allies left wing were reinforced by men of that stamp it would  have but little trouble in repulsing  any number of Germans.  The Horse Show opens to.iitfht at  8 o'clock sharp in the H^rsc Show  pavilion.  The Vancouver Exhibition Horse  Show will be opened tonight in^the  big stock judging pavilion on the Exhibition grounds. That performance  will be one of the biggest and best  of the entire series of horse show  nights.     '   '  Of particular interest is the fact  that y.e proceeds of the show ^will be  turned over to the Vancouver War  Fund, and a large attendance is further justified by the fact that tonight's performance will be one of  the most extensive and interesting of  the whole Exhibition.  Competition in the various events  will be particularly keen and some  very smart turn outs are expected on  the tan bark. The events start at  7:30 with six single trotters.  At 7:45 four hunting pairs will be  put^through their paces and 8 o'clock  three single broughams and three officers' chargers will enter the lists for  honors.  Four combination horses will be  called at 8:10, and 8:20 an intermission will be announced in which the  T)utton Troupe���������that clever vaudeville caste���������will entertain the gathering for half an hour  At 9 o'clock the Corinthian cfess  will-enter the ring for judging, and  at 9:20 the feature of the evening  show will be brought on, this being a  special high jumping contest between  the classiest jumpers in the coutnry.  This last event Will close the first  evening of the Exhibition Hors-e  Shi>;,��������������������������� but special pert mnances wi!!  be Aput on at all the*shows on the  Skidway.  The singing competition which will  be held in conjunction with the Vancouver Exhibition will be open to  choirs of 25 members from any scho'-l  in British Columbia.' Mr. J������>hn Han-  bury, the well known lumberman of  Vancouver, has generously offered a  handsome silver cup value.l at ?100,  which will be competed for annually,  and to this each year will be addvd  medals by the Exhibition Association.

The Strawberry Root Weevil ln  British Columbia, with Notes on other  Insects attacking Strawberry Plants  in the Lower Fraser Valley, is the  subject of bulletin No. 18 of the Second series of the Central Experimental  Farm. This publication, which has'  been prepared by Mr. R. C. Treherne,  B. S. A., -is baaed upon, a careful study  of the insect carried out in 1912-and  1913, by the writer, under the supervision of Dr. C. Gordon Hewitt, Dominion Entomologist. The Strawberry  Root Weevil constitutes _ tbe ' greatest  obstacle to the successful growing of  strawberries in certain sections of the  liower Fraser Valley; the investigations carried on* demonstrated tbat  the control of this insect was dependent npon cultural methods and the  system of cropping, and for this reason these aspects of the problem bav*  been fully discussed in addition to tbe  economic questions involved in the  control of the weevil. Copies of .'this  new Bulletin are free to those who  make application to the Publications  Branch, Department of Agriculture,  Ottawa.

But I can prove to you most  conclusively that even the mild use  of stimulants' is incompatible with  wprk requiring accurate attention and  definite ..concentration.  To assit me in the work of budding���������work that is as accurate and exact as watch making���������I have a force  of twenty men. I have to discharge  men from this forcb if incompetent..  Some time ago my foreman asked me  if I took pains to inquire into the  personal habits of my men. On being answered in the negative, he surprised me by saying that the men I  found unable to do the delicate work  of budding invariably turned out to.be  smokers or drinkers. These men,  while able to do rough work of farming, call budding and other delicate  work "puttering," and have to.give  it up, owing to inability to concentrate their nerve force. Even men  who smoke one cigar a day Can not  be trusted with some of the most delicate work. Cigarettes are even more  damaging than cigars, and their use  by young boys is little .shorjt'of criminal, and will produce in them the  same results that sand placed in a  watch  will  produce-���������destruction.  I do not think that anybody can  possibly bring up a favorable argument for.the use of cigarettes by  boys. Several of my young acquaintances are in their graves who gave  promise of making happy and useful  citizens; and there is no- question  whatever that cigarettes alone were  the cause of their destruction. No  boy living would commence the use  of cigarettes if he knew what a useless, worthless thing they would make  of him.  fMt**4V'S,,4V'j*4Mt''M^**i'4w������M8'4>,4V4*'4fr4^ .%  FRANK TRIMBLE REALTY CO.:  I Real Estate and Insurance Brokers J  CONVEYANCING  RENTS COLLECTED  r        LOANS NEGOTIATED *  t  PHONE Fair: 185 260 Kingsway J  Vancouver, B.
