Reliable authorities estimate that eighty thousand tons of  foodstuffs a month will be required throughout  the winter. Thus far Canada baa sent about six  thousand tons in two ships. ~ I have asked tha  Admiralty for another collier that we may send  at least expense further goods to alleviate thir  . great distress. The Belgian relief committee at  Halifax will continue to forward supplies shipped  tbroq^thii+port, I feel that Canadians generally desire to share more largely in tbis work and  am respectfully awtog premiers of otber provinces to make these efforts nation wide: A number  of Canadian newspapers bave offered hearty aoi  operation collecting 'funds if responsible committees take charge necessary disbursement. 1  am satisfied that all Canadians, will regard ai  privHejra any assistance given to Belgians. Would  you kindly undertake tbe reaponsibility of apr  pealing to the people of yonr Province and obtain  the assistance of yOnr press towards tbis end;  appointing central committees if; not already in  existence. I think tbat through united Canadian  action we can do spletfdid work along line* to  great advantage of tbe Umpire and the same  time something that will help those who. aa you  know, have made an enormous and pathetic sac-  ���������r rifice that can hardly be estimated. I believe all:  Canadians are ready to render some sacrifice for  the Belgians, who, according to reliable reports,  are homeless and starving."  A subsequent telegram was received from the  Honble. Mr. Murray, advising ma that the Steamer  Trenegloss would be available at Halifax about  December 20th for free transportation of supplies  for Belgium.

VARIETY OF FEED FOR
WINTER EGOS
, , Variety of feed is what fills
the winter egg basket. Com three
times a day as a rule* builds -up
fatty tissue, makes hens lazy and
reduces profit.
"Animal food, ground foodVand
a 'generou8\8upply .of green stuff
produce the best results for fay-f
*ng<fowla,*'aays J. GK Ea![pin,head
o'jrth'e poultry depwtwenfnf the
University of Wisconsin.
The.exercise so needful for
poultry can be provided'in winter
by 'working the grain ration well
into the litter of fresh atraw-that
should Be provided as a earpet on
the feeding floors'. A good variety
of grain should be provided; some
corn,, wheat, oat8, and barley
mixed together, or alternately,
make a .satisfactory ration.
'-A grain ration for winter use
that haa.given gdod resluts at the
experiment station farm consists
of two part corn, two parts wheat,
one part oats and one part barley.
It is recommended <- that the
ground feed be placed in a Bmall
mash Vox or trough where the hen
can have ready access to it. The
following mixture of ground feed
is considered to be quite satisfactory :One ' hundred pounds bran,
100 pounds middlings, 100 pounds
ground corn, 50 pounds malt
sprouts, 50 pounds meat scraps
and sufficient salt. During the
fall and winter about 25 pounds
of oil meal should be added to this
mixture. Where these feeds cannot be had, others of a like na
ture may'be substituted, the main
idea in all instances being to get
a wide variety.
Buttermilk and odda and ends
from the kitchen, and such green
food as cabbage, alfalfa, silage
and turnips are great'aids to egg
production. Not only more eggs
but eggs rich in protein and high
in vitality with firm shells are
likely to result where proper
thought is given to feeding systems.
FEEDING OEEBN BONE.
CLEAN FOOD ESSENTIAL.
One of th6 most productive caus
es of intestinal irritation among
chicks and hens, is that they are
usually compelled to eat their food
mixed with droppings- and other
filth, because the food is thrown
to them in places that are insani
tary. Fowls of allotypes ought to
have a clean place in which and
on which to roost, a clean place
in which ;to lay, uncontaminated
air to breathe, and a clean place
or litter wherein to do their scrat
ching.    ��������� '
' No poultry-farm is complete in
its equipment' without a bone%ill.
and a bone-mill-that ia not kept
constantly, at work' 'dunnjr, the
winter mont)i8 in an idler aoout
the plac* that is not being compelled: to dq full duty along tbe
lifts of helping to produce ruiore
f resh-laici eggs.  X' x- x^
"f^t       ���*+}**'**���
' Uow to teed thecut gi*en'bone
to .tb��- ^atl..a4vantag�� aiay- wqll
be considered." 'We ^ prefer, to-
thoroughly mix it with dry bran
and to place it in covered troughs,
so that thepoultrycart help them-
aelvea "and be debarred from
scratching the product upon the
floor and wasting it/ ~ When fed
in this way, each one of the hens
is more likely to get their individual portion than they will if the
cut green bone is thrown to them.
Under thia condition the strongest and most active' get thVgreat-
est portion of the supply, and the
weaker and letoa active are usually deprived of that kind of food
which they most'need to build up
their constitution and. assist them
in a profitable egg production.
RATION FOR WINTER tAVOfO
In winter laying, and also in
moulting, hens should be fed liber
ally with foodstuffs containing a
high percentage of protein and
carbohydates. c Dried blood is
richest in protein, for it contains
86 per cent; green cut b>ne (one
of .the very best of egg producers) 20 per cent. 'Rice contains
76 per cent of carbohydrates,
wheat comes next with 67 per cent
corn 66 per cent, barley 65 per cent
and oats 57 per cent of carbohydrates.
How much of cufx green { bone
should a hen get a dayt' One
quarter of an ounce per day) per
hen, is quite sufficient. If, given
more bowel troubles are likely to
occur. The best and surest remedy for egg eating is the hatchet.
But the next is to take an egg
make a small hole and take out
some of its contents, and put some
tincture of aloes in the egg, and
churn it with a piece of wood,
glue up the hole and let the hens
peck atit,< they will all but like it.
Have the hens lay in a dark
place, and have the nests-deep,
and the straw or hay close {to the
sides of the box.! Also dry any
egg;;,sheila you may have, ibreak
them up small, and let them have
all you can get. Hens often eat
eggs because the cannot -get the
necessary material for the shells
���Hans Voglsang.
HENS SHOULD EXERCISE
IN WINTER.
As the cold increases so does the
importance of keeping the hens
supplied with a' deep, clean litterr
The" bnlyJ way to" keep thev hens in
the best helth, and consequently
in the "best laying condition, during the extremely cold days ia by
keeping them busily exercising. I
Kke-best ���frwar^'maah -for-their
breakfast^ as it ja quickly assimilated." But I do toot give . them
enough at thia time to satisfy their
appetites, as then there would be
no incentive to work.. Then I stir a
few pints of small grains into a-
bout a foot of chaff or straw.
' The litter will need frequent renewing during the winter. If allowed to remain too long it gets
damp and will freeze solid, so that
work in it is impossible. But if it
has not been attended to, and. I do
not wish to expose the hens by
removing it on the coldeet days, I
do not fail to add plenty of fresh
material on top of the other, as
then is when it is needed most and
Will do mo8t' good. "
The question of warmth at
night is easily managed, so that
no chilled combs wiU be found.
No matter if the house v> comparatively warm at most times, when
the extremely cold nights come
there should be a curtain let down
in front of the roosts. Jt may be
inexpensive. An arrangement of
bran sacks that will fall in front
of the fowls at night and hitch
back by day will well repay one
for the trouble.
If the hens spend the nights in
comfort and the days in vigorous
exercise, with fresh air, they will
lay and tha eggs will be hatchahle.
Of course, plenty of green stuff,
meat, grit and clean water are
important.���M. G. Feint.
Eggs have been sold by weight
in Ireland for many years, ever
since the Danish method was introduced, and where once adopted
has never been put aside.

FREE  mmum  BJSOWA  ���������a���������  lojl:  ^ WPERlAl ouAimr  THE IMPERIAL OIL  COMPANY* LIMITED.  a Canadian corpbraboh with  ovit three thousand employees, is manufacturing and  distributing refined oils, gasolines and lubricating oils in  Canada for Canadian trade.  With its two large refineries  ���������at Sarnia, Ont, and Vancouver, B.C���������and its five  hundred .and twenty-nine  branches throughout the Dominion, it offers to the Canadian public the facilities for  securing the best grades of  Canadian-Made petroleum  products at the lowest prices.  MADE IN CANADA  The fact that the' city of Regina  has a margin of borrowing power  at the present time of $7,000,000  and that the bonded indebtedness  of the city is but t6,000.000 was  revealed in the annual financial  statement  just  issued.     Of the  total of $6,000,000 of bonded indebtedness   some   $4,000,000   is  charged against revenue producing utilities.   This leaves a gross  indebtedness of $2,000,000, and to  offset this, the city owns realizable property to the    value    of  $11,500,000. The statement shows  a. surplus of over   $9,000,000   of  assets over liabilities.   One of the  largest assets which the city has  is   the model industrial   district  which is served by spur tracks  from three transcontinental lines,  paved, electric lighted and given  an  adequate   street  car  service.  This property is sold to bona-fide  industrial concerns at low prices  and"onV easy" ie'rms, invo;:der'tKat  all industrial    concerns   may be  Igept in one district, and the city  proper removed������fr0m the smoke  nuisance and other disadvantages  which result when industries are  scattered. The city of Begina has  taken steps to modify the arsess-  ment to meet presehx conditions.  It is proposed tjhat the civic officials secure independent opinions  from the ratepayers the mselves as  to the value of   property,    and  strike v an   equitable   assessment  based on their various opinions.  In this way it is expected that the'  assesment will   be   one   against  which no complaint can be made,  even though the existing depression continues.    This will not prejudice the city's borrowing power,  as there is such a wide d-fference  between the bonded indebtedness  and the borrowing power.   It is  probable    that    other    Canadian  cities will follow the example set  by Regina and allow the ratepayers to e repress their views in the  striking of the .assessments while  present conditions continue.

She hat already loaned 121.5,000,000  to her allies and friends for War purposes; $50,-  000 to Belgium, $4,000,000 to Servia^$8,000,000 to  Greece, besides large cash advances-to Canada,  South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. These  4oans are without interest so long at'hostilities  continue.  When the European nations took up anna  tgainst Napoleon, England pursued'the same  poljicy. She financed country after country until the menace of a one-nation tyranny was banished. There is no doubt that Great Britain is  in a healthy financial condition and better able  .to atand the drain and strain of a long war than  .any other power. And her financiers prophesy  that when peace comes she will be in even better  condition than when the struggle began.  A LETTER FROM  CONSTANTINOPLE  A number of ugly things seems to indicate that  we are drifting toward war. The mobilization is  not coming to an end, as was promised. Preparations for some looked-for event are continuing  with increasing rapidity. The soldiers who have  been brought in from the 'interior are being  equipped. The government has been seizing  from the stores in the city clothing, blankets,  cloth, a?d other necessary goods. Troops from  the provinces in. the south have been hurried up  this way.' Hospital' corps have be&i organised  and trained. The hills from Constantinople on  both sides of the Bosphorus are gradually, becoming populated with 'soldiers,' so that the outlook shows a continually increasing city of tents.  The hills back of the .Bosphorus, from Bebek  down to San Stephano, are not^only^beii-g populated in this way, but are, being fortified also.  A medical friend writes from .Konia. that his  hospital has been requisitioned by ths Govern-,  ment in view of expected war. We understand  that extensive fortifications are being mt de from  Erzroom, and that Russian? troops. are - being  moved to the Persian frontier, and that Western  Persia is now practically in Russian'h nda. A  large number of German engineers and / vorkmen  some say numbering more than three thousand,  have lately come to the city, atid seem tc foe taking charge of practically every departm? t o������<ihe  government's military, police, and naval activities  The Turkish fleet, such as it is, re-enforced by the  "Goeben" and "Breelan," together With a number of large passenger steamers, ia apparently being fitted up for tome expeditionary force.. Jt is  said that these Turkish vessels are tU officered by  -Germans, who are in some instances still in the  uniform lof; the German navy. -  ' Jt is now said that Roumania; and Bulgaria  have both decided to throw in their lot with the  Entente, and that there has been' e. renewal, in  some form, of the Balkan Alliance, upder.the  leadership of the Entente Powers, who have premised "to these countries future territorial acquisitions to satisfy their ambitions. This Balkan  Alliance, if successful,-will .he an effectual block  to the attempt to make an open road from -Q/w-,  many to the grain fields of Asia Minor,,^ia .Roumania and Bulgaria. v> ��������� >,;L''i������y���������:  The Turkish pepertthismorning sp^kopfen-  ly of the relation of, Turkey to the pres-nt situt-  tion at "the, general war, in whieh we have^al-  ready become involved*'V* * leaoaed >������-sterday  from native Jfrienda who tropin-dote touch wfth.  the Committee ^>f Union tnd Pregrosa. that^tW  Turkirt leaders" who ten dtys tgo ttsevted thtt  Turkey would ,rtttih������ her, neutrality, are v now,  *med *or war!"'

Ellis has received a letter from  C.P.O. Hughes announcing the safe arrival at  Halifax of the ex-Royal-Naval men who left Vancouver November 15th. They were to leave on  the Cunarder "Pranconian " on November ,29th  for Liverpool to be~absorbed in H.M. fleet.  It is worth noting that there are a few streaks  of light in a sky that is undeniably black. There  are some alleviating circumstances to this war  In the first place it is not a conflict between the  West and the East. That ancient and, as some  would have it, unalterable division between mankind is not intensified by this struggle. Men of  the East, of Japaii, of India, of Egypt, are fighting with the Allies, while the races ofiTurkey are  arrayed against them. The new combinations and  comradeship which this >war haa created may  even help to break down the barrier that has been  felt-to separate the people of the two hemispheres.  Again, this is not a racial war. It is not t straight  conflict between Teuton and Slav; Slavs are to  be found on both aides and in large numbers.  The alignments of the war do not intensify racial  animosities.-  Onc$ morethis is not a religious war. It does  not array Christian against non-Christian. Men  of all religious faiths are thrown together indiscriminately. Those popularly called "heathen"  are fighting side by side with Christians, and  against'-them are their co-religionists, together  with other Christiana. It is a strange and on the  whole, we believe, afortunate mix-up of the religions of the, world, which will tend to the lessening  of prejudice and hostility.  In particular, we note the rupture entailed in  What has been regarded aa the solid mass of Islam.'  The Sheik-ul-Islam at Constantinople may call  upon all Mohammedans in every land to stand  firm in support of Turkey and her Sultan, the  grand' caliph: he may proclaim that the conflict  now on is a ''Jehad," or holy war, in which there  is only one side for the faithful. But the faithful see it differently. The Mohammedan subjects of Great Britain in India declare their loyalty 4b the empire and their regret that Turkey  hat been misled into-allying herself with Germany."���������The Missionary Hertld.  , i The London VTimes" mentions among, the,  embarrassments to industry which the war, ia  bringing out, the reduced supply of safety lamps  -for use in mines,   ft teems that the English Commission on Accidents in Mines, determined, some  . yearaago^that explosions, etc^ in ������oal mines.were.  - often due to breakage, of the glass in the safety  flame lamps.

HAY,  ��������� City Solicitor  wmsamm99A9wmmmsBBSBSBB==asssssBss  THE GOLD APPEAL  The long drawn out litigation arisirj "+ if  the the- Unsuccessful fight made by Mr. JBdward  Gold to secure the 'reeveship, of South Vancouver  last May ended th^ .week, when the Court of  Appeal unanimously dismissed Mr Gold's appeal  and confirmed Ur. justice Morrison's judgment  dismissing Mr. Gold *f election petition. ���������  Mr. Gold entered municipal life in South Vancouver last January,'when he succeeded in being'  elected as a. councillor. > Shortly after he. resigned  and contested aseat in another ward with its occupant on a challenge, and succeeded in his election.  In May, when the reeveship became prematurely  vacant, he designed again to contest the reeveship  .with Mr. J. A. Keer. This time he did not succeed. _ *  Following his defeat for the reeveship', Mr.  i  Gold brought a petition to unseat Reeve Iterr, od  the ground of imperaohation, double-voting and  ativimproper voters' list.   The first two grounds  amounted to very-little at the trial, but the attack-  on the .voters' list on more than a thousand, indiv-, j  idual names promised to assume great magnitude.  I  The trial judge, Mr; Justice Morrison,! however, ^  ruled on section 21 ot the act, that the voters' list A  as passed by the court of revision and used in the' I  January elections, became the accepted list for  the year and' could not be attacked.   Mr. R. W.  Hannington, counsel for the reeve made a point  out of the fijet that Mr. Gold had twice been  elected on the, list which he sought to attack.'  .  The appeal'was .taken against   Mr. c Justice  Morison's deoision, on a seeming contradiction  between sections 15 and 21 of the act, one indicat-}  ing.that the voters'.list is inexpungable after1  January, and the other seeming to indicate that  it-is not.

Mr. Justice McPhillipa hi treeing "with  the reasons advanced by his brother judges said  that the trend of modern legislation was to minimise stacks on- voters' lists and make'them impregnable after revision. In his opinion the intent of the Legislature expressed in section 21 was  that a list once used was to be the liat for the rest  of the year. ' ' -      ���������  ' Mr. W.; C.

" A  publication'Which1 -should,
prove of considerable interest* to'
the prospective settler has recent-'
ly been prepared w, and is now
being issued from the   Railway
Lands Branch of the Department
of the Interior at Ottawa.- This^
interesting publication, which ir-
known as the   Peace. River   or _
Northern    Alberta    Homestead
Map, graphically illustrates.by a
comparatively simple system ��of,
coloring the land situation in that
district, including as it does,.com* ,
plete information with respect to,\
the disposal of lands, location bf
Timber Berths and   Forest   Reserves, nature of the soil, etc.-
An interesting feature of the
map is the fact that it enables an-
observer to procure at-a glance
a complete grasp of.the present-
land 8ituation, not only with regard to tho8e lands which have*
been taken up during pest years,
but also with respect to lands^pre-
viously   bometteaded   but   for
whieh patent has not as yet issued
Jt thwa-enables a person to trace
the progress during comparatively recent years of settlement in
the Peace River District.
The aim in the.preparation of.
the map has, been to show the
land situation up to September of
tbe^present yes> <ind, in view of
tbe rapid exhaustion of free home
steads throughout the older provinces, the information should
prove of particular interest to
prospective settlers.
.Up-to-Dtte in Other Respects.
In addition to the information'
with respect to lands which have
been homesteaded and otherwise
disposed of the publication contains complete information regarding railways, general topography of the country, etc.
