Logan will speak at a public  meeting in the Ward V. Conservative room this (Friday) evening at 8 o'clock.  The splendid record which the  ' congregation of Mount Pleasant  Presbyterian has attained in the  matter of service to the Empire in her hour of need was  fittingly emphasized last Sunday night in the unveiling of  the second honor roll at the  church, Mayor McBeath officiating. Eloquent addresses in appreciation to the response to  the call of empire on the part  of the men who had enlisted and  in which the righteousness of the  cause of the allies was urged  were made by the mayor and  Rev. A. E. Mitchell, the pastor.  JThe .honor roll contains seventy-  nine names, which, added to the  eighty-one names on the first  honor roll, swells the number  ' enlisted from the congregation  up to 160. The church was  crowded for the ceremony^ **  _   Effect of War on Empire  Speaking with reference to  .the war, Mr. Mitchell said that  [\ >.it had given to , the Empire a  new unity, a new patriotism, a  new seriousness. The speaker  said that he hoped the war would  bring a new faith and a new  peace.  The men who had gone to the  front were willing to suffer, and  willing to die, if needs be. The  challenge to those behind was to  live unselfish lives and to be soldiers of Jesus Christ in the pulling down of things that were  wrong ahd in putting up of  things that were right. We  were all hoping and praying for  the end of the war and the  sooner': it ended in a new and  lasting-peace,���������the-better.--What  good came out of this awful war  must be lasting. In talking of  such a peace we mentioned the  abolition of militarism and the  putting aside of dreadnoughts.  But this would not secure a  lasting peace. The only way we  could . secure a lasting peace  would be by having our conception of God christianized. In  this war God had too often been  called upon as the Lord of  Hosts, the God of Battle, the  Captain of the Mighty and not  as lie had been revealed in the  New Testament, as Jesus Christ,  the God and Father of us all.  All Children of God  In the second place we needed  to Christianize our conception of  nationality. When we came to  the fuller teaching of Christ we  found that there was neither  Jew nor Gentile, but we were all  children of God. Every nation  ought to be a servant of Christ  and should not desire to be in  itself a power to rule the world.  Men must be right with God ahd  stand right with each other before there will be a lasting peace.  In introducing Mayor McBeath, the pastor paid him a  tribute in saying that as chief  niagisrate he showed that he was  going to make it as hard as possible for the citizens of Vancouver to do wrong and as easy  as possible for them to do right;  A Sacred Occasion  The mayor said that an occasion such as the one at which  he was officiating was a solemn  and sacred one, and one that  brought pride in every true British heart. We had assembled to  do honor to the brave lads who  were making sacrifices in the  name of the Empire. It was gratifying to know that the congregation of the Mount Pleasant  Presbyterian church had not  been behind that of other  churches in doing its duty to  king and country. Out of. the  160 enlisted three had made the  supreme sacrifice.  The names inscribed on the  honor roll were:  J. Anderson, J. Beck, D. Boy-  es,  J.   Boyes,  A.   A. Bacon,  H.  E. Bacon, W. H. Bacon, D. Bain,  F. R. Baxter, M. Britton, W.  Brown, R. Burnett, W. Burnett, J. Cameron, B. C. Craig,  B. Cowan, D. Duquid, A.- Dundas, G. E. Donley, W. Eason,  A. M. Farquhar, Mr. Gerrard,  A. R.

Thompson, G. Vance,  L. Wilson, R. Wilso, W. Wilson,  Walter Newitt, Thos. G. New-  itt, Walter P. Wiming, Jas. A.  Watson.  Of those enlisted from the  congregation C. A. Moody, Thomas Goodsir and T. R. Pearson  have been killed.  A popular lecture on "Ireland" was given by the Rev. A.  E. Cooke in Robertson Presbyterian church, Grandview, on  Tuesday evening, Dr. J. W. Mc^  Intosh presiding. The lecture,  which was brimful of interest  and entertainment, was delivered in racy fashion and was listened to with marked appreciation by a large audience which  completely filled the church. Selections of Irish songs made a  delightful setting, and were rendered by Mrs. H. H. Roberts,  Miss Greta Harvie and Miss Jen  ny Melville���������Mrs. Logie giving  instrumental selections and also  acting as accompaniment.  There are no fires to report in  the district for the past week, a  state of affairs which is considered most fortunate by the  department.  On Good   Friday  evening   at  8.15 the choir of St. Michael's  church, augmented. to sixty  voices, will render Stainer's  ^Crucifixion" and the "Gallia"  by Gounod. There will be special services Good Friday- at 11  a.m., and on Easter Sunday  there will be communion at 8  a.m. and special Easter services  at 11 a.m. and 7.30 p.m. with a  special children's service at 3 in  the afternoon:  SOUTH VANCOUVER  At N the regular- meeting of  Ward 1 ratepayers' association  tonight, Reeve Winram will deliver an address on the work of.  the council during the year. He  will deal particularly with the  financial position, and how one  by one the troubles are being  overcome. Councillor Lowe, the  representative for the ward, will  also give an account of his stewardship since taking office. The  meeting^ will be held in the Carleton school, Collingwood, at 8  o'clock.  The   Rainbow    Cirde   of the  King's Daughters held their annual business meeting and election of officers today at the home  of Mrs. Hutchings, 322 8th ave.  east.  During Lent a series of children 's services have been held in  St. Michael's church, with lantern views. These services, under the direction of Rev. Christopher Lord, have been very  largely attended.  Alexandra Review No. 7, Woman's Benefit Asociation of the  Macabees, met in the Knights  of Pythias Hall on Wednesday  evening; Lady Commander Wilson was in the chair. One new  member was accepted. The ladies decided to hold a "Fancy  Fair" on Wednesday, April 26th,  in the same hall.  On Wednesday evening last  many friends and acquaintances  Mr. W. McF. McGregor, of 21st  avenue and Willow street, met  at his home at a farewell reception to him and to his associates  who have enlisted for the front.  The kiltie pipers were in atend-  ance, as well as several members of the 72nd and 158th battalions and a most enjoyable musical evening was spent. Mr.  McGregor is attached to the engineers at North Vancouver.  WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON  FAVORED FOR HOLIDAY  At the meeting of the Retail Merchants' Association held  yesterday afternoon in the Board of Trade rooms there was  a diversity of opinion as to the day to be set aside for the!  half-holiday.  A motion and several amendments were proposed during  the discussion which was continued for nearly two hours,  the original motion in favor of the closing of the stores on  Wednesday afternoons being ultimately carried by a vote of  64 to 47.  President F. W. Welsh, ia opening the proceedings, stated  that the Premier of the province had given notice that at this  session of the House he would introduce a bill for a compulsory weekly half-holiday for-clerks, and, he said, they had a  definite promise both from the Premier and the Liberal leader that this would be treated as a non-contentious measure.  Tbey -recognized that a. comiroWry weekly half-holiday for  clerks without a compulsory closing of the shops would work  a hardship on the merchants, and they felt that the best way  out of the situation was for the government to introduce a  bill for tbe compulsory closing of all stores. There was also,  be said, the question as to whether any exemptions should be  made, and as to what would be the most suitable day, and  he invited the members to express an opinion upon these  subjects in order that their views could be brought before  the Premier.  The school trustees have decided that the Easter vacation  shall extend from April 21 to  the end of the month. "���������  A strong committee has been  formed among the teachers of  the various schools for the purpose of holding school sports  during the coming season.  Yesterday morning  Mr. J. J.  Powell, superintendent of the  Sunday School of the Sanford  Methodist church, and his wife  and family left Vancouver for  Manitoba. A farewell banquet  was given in their honor last  week in the church, when Mr.  Powell was presented with an  address and a beautifully bound  copy of Shakespeare's works. Besides being superintendent of the  Sunday school, a position which  he held since the church was  opened four years ago, Mr. Powell was an active worker in all  the other agencies of the church.  Intimation  was  made to the  school board this week that Miss  D. Fleischman, assistant at  the Walter Moberly school,  would retire from the service of  the board  at the end of April.  Under the direction of Relief  Officer Pleming, the land at the  side of the municipal hall has  been ploughed and was seeded  with potatoes. The crop will be  used by the inspector in relief  of the poor next winter.  ���������=������}  At the Brittania  school    last  night an illustrated lecture on  "Shakespeare, The Man," was  given with fifty lantern views,  and interspersed with musical  and dramatic selections.  There  is   some   talk   of  the  amalgamation of the orders of  Beavers and Lions, and a final  conference will be held tomorrow evening in the city, at  .which the heads of both orders  will be present to decide on the  necessary steps to take in this  connection.  Councillor   Pollock   yesterday  investigated the telephone arrangements in the municipal  hall with a view to having the  monthly bill reduced. He considers that when everyone is trying  to economize the staff should be  able to manage its work with a  smaller number of telephones  and will recommend that 14 telephones be removed from the  hall.  The cadets in South Vancouver schools are enthusiastic in  their work and may be seen drilling early and late on their  school grounds. Those not able to  take cadet work are devoting  their energies to extensive school  gardening under the instruction  of their principals, and the  grounds systematically laid out,  tilled and planted by the scholars  give promise of good things.  Gramciview  At All   Saints   Church   next  Sunday morning there will be  litany and holy communion instead of the regular Lenten services. In the evening the Lord  Bishop of Columbia will hold a  confirmation service at 7.30.  The first four days of next week  there will be.shortened morning  prayer and anti-communion service at 10 a.m. On Good Friday  services are at 10 a.m. and 5  p.   m.    Miss   Eva Nieteel entertained  a number of her young friends  very pleasantly at her home, corner of Kitchener and Woodland Drive, on Monday evening.  A very enjoyable time was spent  by those present. Mr. Geo. Cran  gave a few piano selections in  finished style. An amusing contest was won by Miss Mae Addison and Mr. John Dawson.  Among those present were Mrs.  Dean Henderson, Mrs. Niet-  zel and the Misses Mae Addison,  Mildred Hiscoek, Ena Nietzel,  Louisa Kelly, Hester Henderson,  Alice Scribner, Margaret Scrib-  ner, Juanita Nietzel, Etta Nietzel, Gertrude McLean, and the  Messrs. Wm. Urquhart, C. Kil-  bank, H. Cook, William Cook,  Edward Buekston, P. Edwards,  G Cran, R. Payne, J. Barnes, D.  Henderson Crawford Henderson,  J. Dawson, R. Evans, H. Dean  and Doran Senisfret.  A public meeting has been  called for tonight in the Muni  cipal hall by Coun. James for  the purpose of discussing the  proposal to organize a horticultural society.' The parks committee-will'--also- -4>e"ppesjent "and  Relief Officer Pleming will bring  fonyard a proposal for planting  with potatoes the school grounds  which last year were given out  to the ratepayers for gardens.  A meeting of the Ward V. ratepayers will also be held at the  same time, at which Coun. James  will deliver an address.  The extent of a surface a given quantity of paint will cover  depends on the pigment and the  oil. Volume for volume, the paint  made from white lead is heavier than a similar paint made  with zinc white. Paint will  Spread farther "an lar hard;" non-  porous surface than on one that  is soft and open. And there are  degrees of both in the surfaces  we have to paint. In a general  way it may be said that the first  coat of. ,.bare wood will require  twice as much paint as will be  required on the second or third  coat.  "Little beds of flowers,  Little drops of paint,  Make a pleasant cottage  Out of one that aint."  Preparations   are   being mada  by the committee in charge of  the canvass for subscriptions for  the Canadian Patriotic Fund,  which will be held on Saturday.  The municipality has been divided into districts, and a captain will be appointed for each.  A large number of ladies and  gentlemen willing to help in the  canvass have already, handed  their names to the secretary.  Mr. J. B. Springford, at the  municipal hall, but many more  are still asked for. A public  meeting is to be held this evening in the municipal hall, to  whieh all those who in any way  intend to assist are invited. The  house-to-house canvassers will  be appointed to their respective  districts and the collectors for  the tagging will be given their  positions.  Mr. Fitzjohn having enlisted  for active service, Janitor Jones  has been transferred to Carleton School in his place, and Mr.  T. Hill to Champlain school. Mr.  R. Williamson, janitor at Tecum-  seh school has also obtained indefinite leave of ��������� absence " for  overseas service. -   -.      *  Tha South Vancouver soldiers'  children    are   presenting    their  cantata,      "Britannia's     Recep-  Abbott  street- on  Friday, April  tion," at the Soldiers'Club,'233  14, at 8 p.m. in aid of the Soldiers ' and Sailors' Mothers and  Wives Red Cross branch. Lieut.-  Col. Milne,  of the  158th Battalion,   will   preside   as   chairman.  The   children   have .been   well  trained and the cantata is well  worth seeing.  Those  who   have  not seen it should take this opportunity to   do  so.   The  price  of admission is 25 cents.   "Our  fathers are  on the fighting line,  we are   going   to   do our   bit."  Come and see what the soldiers'  kiddies can do.  The Red Cross workers of the  CentraTPaf k ~ Women s Institute  had a delightful little meeting  on Saturday afternoon at their  new rooms, 379 .loyce Road, Collingwood East. Several ladies  called to return the work they  had completed, remaining for a  pleasant half-hour and partaking  of tea, which is served every  Saturday afternoon until five  o'clock. The tables were looking particularly inviting with  their vases of daffodils .and violets, and with the return of better weather these busy workers  are looking forward to a welcome" increase in their numbers,  as each lady, far or near, realizes her responsibility in helping  to provide for the boys at the  front. It is not only members of  the institute, but all who can  help in any way, whether by  donations, gift of cake, etc.,  for these teas, or by sewing and  knitting, who are cordially invited.  Mrs.  H.  C. Woods, Mrs. Mc-  Geer and friends formed a deputation to the school board this  week advocating the claims of  the "Parent-Teacher Asociation  now being formed. After hearing the aims of the association  from Mrs. Woods, the board assured the deputation of its sympathy and desire to help as the  scheme develops. < THE WESTERN GALL  a.  Friday, April 14, 1916.  Miss Madeline Doty, in the  current issue of Good Housekeeping, calls attention to the inefficiency of juvenile reform iusti-  . tutions in caring for the boys  and girls who come under their  jurisdiction. It has happened  hiindreds and thousands of times,  says Miss Doty, that the love and  care of strangers has kept a child  in the right path, physically and  morally, has given it courage to  stifle the longing for its own mother, which never dies, and has  brought the child to maturity  well equipped for facing life and  possessed of a keen and overwhelming ' sense of gratitude towards those who took pity on  their poor estate. This ability to  recognize the great void which  is past all repair and to recognize the beautiful substitute  which has been given is, in itself, a great factor in character  making. It is one of the laws  of life that because one craves  the unattainable it does not follow, at all that one must have  the unattainable. But it does follows that one must be grateful  for unearned help.  Miss Doty gives examples from  men who have been imprisoned,  not once but many times, and  who began life at an early age in  reform schools or home for  for foundlings. Without exception these men look back with  horror to the time when, six,  seven, eleven years of. age they  were already within the grasp of  the institution. Whether the  thing is true or not, the impression in each case is that life was  simply a rotation of deprivations  and brutal punishments with a  total lack of anything approaching to common kindness.  The Rule of Silence  One rule which seems universal  is that children shall not even  whisper in the dining room.  There is no doubt at all that  this is a pretty general rule. No  doubt the idea is that mischief  cannot be hatched if no one  speaks. There will certainly be  no bad language used, out loud!  If this rule were not condemned  for its cruelty it should be abolished for its silliness. That school  which prohibits whispering also  has a long list of penalties for  whispering, which shows that  prohibition does not prohibit. It  is also a fine garden for all  kinds of deceit and a hot-bed  for the teaching of disloyalty.

If insteacf of  constantly directing the children's attention to things they  may not do they are given numberless pleasant and profitable  tasks there will be no desire to  whisper. To prohibit talking  during meal times is a simple  confession of inability to deal  with what need not be an evil  and might be one of the greatest helps to those responsible  for discipline. Of all times of the  day, meal time should be the  most joyous. It will not be boisterous and noisy if there is a  feeling on the part of the children that they are welcome and  well liked even if not beloved.  A few years ago a young man  went to a western city to begin  life as a teacher. Because of the  death of his father this young  man had entered an orphan asylum ahd continued to live there  until permitted to leave and support himself. He managed to put  himself, through college and was  a fine specimen of manhood,  morally and physically.  Like a Caged Animal  And yet, to his dying day he  will never be rid of the feeling  of repression, of unreasonable exclusion from everything natural  and pleasant that belongs to his  life in the asylum. Twelve hundred boys in the dining room at  every meal, entering lock-step  and not allowed to speak a word!  It was no wonder that this young  man was like a caged animal  made free, during his first year  of teaching* Boarding house life,  the slight taste of social joys  which came to him, even the experience of sending out his laundry were keen pleasures! He  said: "Every experience of my  life this year, even to the food  on the table, is something I  never experienced before!" And  his happy face made a sad commentary on what the other years  niust have been.  This young man had something  in his make-up that kept him  hopeful and eager and obedient.  His mother and sisters were in  the same city: He no doubt had  always the feeling of thankfulness that the poverty and suffering which threatened' had been  averted. But for this one fortunate case how many heartbreaking cases are there of children who have no parents and  friends. And worst of all is that  of the child who has no name,  no known mother! No one can  fathom the anguish of such an  onec and there can be no greater  cruelty than refusing to tell such  a child all that is known when  it implores to be told. _ _��������� _  Mother Love Necessary  It is a mistake to suppose that  boys are stolid and do not grieve  for their mother. Even into manhood they still cry out for this  love. Their anguish is so deep  and so hopeless and passes  through so many stages from  vain remonstrance, through helpless rebellion and finally, in  many cases, into bitter resentment and a feeling of enmity towards all. No one stops to wonder why the boy is "unreasonable." Is he unreasonable? He  is only helpless.  There is no doubt at all that  the time will come when these  institutions will be managed as  carefully as the finest homes.  Matrons and attendants will be  chosen for their womanly qualities and not be asked to combine  mother's work with that of business executive and disciplinarian.  Others will be given these tasks  and the motherless child will be  treated as a tender plant needing special care���������love and sympathy and firm but kindly guidance!*  GREAT BRITAIN  AFTER THE WAR  I  The legs of cast-off stockings, split  and herringboned, represent house flannel; ravellings from new house linen  ���������equal flourishing thread for darning  'the old; superannuated sheets and  towels alord material for dusters and  cloths; and damask table covers may  be cut down into tray cloths, serviettes,  doilies and carving slips. '  T iif too early to begin to consider  our economic position after the  war. The main outlines of the  problem are already fairly clear. In  the first place, as compared with the  pre-war period, we shall suffer from  the following disadvantages: We shall  have lost by death, wounds and disease the services of a considerable  number of our best men. We shall be  poorer. A great deal of capital will  have been destroyed. We shall have  sold the best of our foreign securities, and our national plant will be  to some extent impaired and depreciated.  ' Wbat to Expect  Our financial machinery will be out  of order. We shall be suffering from  inflation, and our financial institutions will be more* or less tied up.  There will be less capital for the advancement of industry, and capital,  being scarce will be dear. Interest rates  for long loans will be high. High interest eats away profits quickly and  acts as a heavy load on industry.  There will be severe internal dislocation. Millions of soldiers will be  discharged; millions of munition  workers will lose their employment. Nothing to equal such dislocation will  ever before have been known. Moreover, we shall be faced with all the  difficulties arising from the free dilution of labor, and the employment of  women; from promises of the reinstatement of soldiers; from promises  by the government of a return to prewar conditions as regards Trade Union  restrictions; from cessation of separation allowances and war bonuses.  . There will be external dislocation  caused by international hatreds, destruction of foreign markets, dislocation of labor and capital in ' other  countries, and so forth. Heavy taxation will be a great burden on many  sections of the population, especially  those with fixed incomes. In England it seems that we must suffer, still  from the greatest handicap of all, the  continuing struggle between capital and  labor, with its ensuing damage not  only to both sides, but to the whole  community.  General Staff for Industry  On the other hand, we shall still  have all the essentials for the rapid  production of wealth, if we know how  to use them. (1) Our national plant  will be practically undamaged by  war, even if it requires repair; (2)  Our labor force, through reduced somewhat by death and disease, will be on  the whole intact. (3) Our financial machinery, though strained, will also be  intact. Therefore, we shall have at  our command the chief elements in the  production of wealth. Our difficulties  will be mainly those caused by dislocation and by the reduction in our  supplies of capital. On the first point,  something can be done to minimize  the effects of dislocation here and  abroad and in giving strategic advice  to industry by the creation of a department which would act as a sort  of General Staff for industry. It  would be idle to suppose that in a  sphere so vast and complicated as  modern industry, any government or  semi-government direction can take  the place of the expert initiative  of countless private individuals. But  undoubtedly more could be done by  co-operative effort between the government and industry in the way of  discovering and supplying markets, estimating demand, and combining the  financial and industrial forces of the  country, and possibly of the Empire  as well.  Capital and Labor  On   the   second point���������namely, the  supply  of capital���������all turns  upon  increased production, coupled with ^conr  ~tinWd''econpmy~in the consumption of  unnecessary goods. T,he problem, however, is indissolubly linked with that  of distribution. There are few who do  not recognize the necessity for a more  equitable   distribution   of  wealth. Not  only, must   the standard  of  living  be  maintained, it is essential that in the  case of the mass of unskilled labor it  should be  raised.   It is right, too, to  regard increased production as useless  and  even harmful, if it  is  to   end ei  ther in the idleness and extravagance  of a London season, or in drinking and  gambling  among the  working  people.  There   is a vast deal   to be   done   to  remedy  present   conditions.   But   here,  too, we are brought back to the question of production.   Unless production  is    maintained and   indeed  increased,  every specific remedy  for  bad   distribution    must   infallibly   fail.    If   we  could   double   our   national   output,   it  would be vastly more easy to provide  all with the essentials of a decent and  healthy  life.   Such  a  prospect is  not  a   mere   chimera.   Our present   output  per head is   a   miserable   result compared to what might be accomplished  by the proper  co-operation  of  capital  and   labor.   Let us  not   imagine   that  a mathematically equal distribution of  wealth is desirable   or  possible.      We  must   aim  at   such   a   condition  that  every man or woman performing useful  services  to .the  community is  assured   of   such means as to   be   able  to live a proper life.   But since material wealth is not the aim of existence  and since men were   not   born   equal  or with the same wishes and aptitudes,  we shall never reach equality of property.   But, though equality of wealth  can  never be reached, matters   cannot  be left after the war in this country as  they   are today.   We   are   terribly far  away   from   enabling   a great section  of our population   to live  decent and  healthy  lives.

The capitalist has got to look  beyond his own interests to those  of the communiy. He has got to learn  that the community is vastly more injured by the discontent and poverty  and depression of those he employs  than it is advantaged by his own* accumulation of wealth. He must put  service to the community before a  large income. He has got to learn that  high wages and high production are  vastly better, not only for the wage-  earners, but even for himself, than  low wages and" festrictOd^productionT  On the other hand, the workingman  has got to broaden his vision and  work his hardest for the community.  Especially has the skilled man to  abandon many of his present cherished restrictions, and allow the free employment of men and of machinery in  the way best fitted for production.  We are today suffering intensely from  the cruel laissez-fairy policy of the  industrial revolution. The community  demands service from all; in return it  must see that all those ready and  willing to serve can obtain the essentials of a decent life. We shall be  faced after the war by demands for retrenchment and economy of all kinds.  True economy will, indeed, be essen-  ential. But the most fatal kind of  economy will be that which would in  any way prevent tho growing generation from obtaining the education and  the means of livelihood needed to  make them decent citizens. We have  got to spend more, not less, on education and on training of all kinds. Our  power to do this and to take any  steps along the road of abolishing poverty is dependent on the productive  energy and the wise economy if every  one of us.���������From the Bound Table.

THE WESTERN CALL  ���������5WH  3  DOES GERMANY HOLD THE  SECRET OF ORGANIZATION?  (From L'Opinion)  |������������i-|-������HE Germailic race has discover-  I       ed the secret of organization."  Of all the heresies and nonsense current in Germany concerning  1 history, geograph, ethnography and  morals, I have never come across anything more extraordinary than that of  Dr. Ostwald.  The race, or speaking rather more  scientifically, the Germanic nation, inhabited the Teutoberg forests after  the manner of a tribe of Sioux Indians when the "secret of organization" had, many centuries before, already been discovered by China, Egypt, Assyria, Phoenicia, Persia, Crete,  Greece  and Rome.  If the stamp of organization is the  collective form of government which  remains to be proved, it must bo proved in some other way than by phrases  in contradiction with texts, that the  rule of individualism was held in honor in Athens, Sparta, Rome and the  Orient.  In the Boman Empire  Probably no more perfect organization has ever existed than the Roman  Empire. More than once have I  drawn attention to this significant fact  that the invasion of the' barbarians  considered by every other nation as  disastrous to humanity, is upheld.and  glorified in all German schools. Even  that was a triumph for morality and  the old god. Measure the distance  which separates the principles of nations having received these two educations (1) the horror. (2) the admiration of barbarian invasions. That  is the seeret of many events, a secret  which is important in another sense  than the so-called secret of organization.  The Holy Roman-Germanic Empire,  which, as we know, was neither holy  nor Roman, was not inorganic. Its organization , was, in truth, quiio rudi-  mentary.   This   lack   of   organization  has  been  borrowed from  the  Roman  Empire.    'X  Later on, the Reformation, the" great  German religious revolution, led it to  political anarchy. Therefore, the Ge.r  manic nation had not yet discovered  "the secret of organization."  Inherited from Borne  France had discovered it, or rather  she had inherited-it from Rome. The  organization of Germany dates from,  the wars of the revolution and of the  Empire. The actual organization of  Germany is Napolionic at base.  We remember the time when our  administration was the envy of Europe. Most of all was it admitted by  Germany. It was on this model that  Prussia formed her administration. She  passed it on to Germany after the  great Bismarkian wars. Since then has  it been exaggerated, overdone, deformed by the excessive subordination  of the ���������individual to the collective  body? I think so. What is this secret that Germany has discovered?  What has happened is that our administrative machine has deteriorated  whilst that of Germany was being  perfected, and this faculty of organization, not lacking in Richelieu, Colbert, Louvsis, the Cohvention or Napoleon, was being developed by Germany  with a great deal of method, in industries, commerce, in science even, as  well as in civil and military institutions. '  Therein lies the merit of Prussia, of  the German Empire of 1871, merit,  which in all loyalty, we must admit. A  large portion, perhaps the largest, of  German strength comes therefrom.  This organization, however powerful  and intelligent it may be, has its  other side. A man, an individual, can  never with impunty be made a tool  of, or become simply a part of an  enormous  machine.

I  could never bring myself to admire  German " corporatism" as it can be  at times.  The Spirit   Overlooked.  Now, in Hohenzollern Germany  everything has been corporalized, industry, finance, science, morals, religion. A science which is changeable  and therefore dishonest, at the service  of politics. Immoral morality which  has * ceased to distinguish between  good and evil which, upon demand,  glorifies the false telegram of Ems,  the violation of Belgian neutrality, the  atrocities of the Lusitania. Eeligion  which commits all sorts of crimes in  the name of the Livinity and fills all  religious minds with horror. '    -  "Herded" nations may win striking victories. They never gain victory. The day will break when, having accomplished one or other of her  living, active works, she will fall to  pieces. Nothng will remain but scrap  iron.  Our Latin organizations, less rigid,  yield according to the spirit which animates them. The Germany' of the  Hohenzollern was able to copy our organizations and .to perfeet part; the  spirit was overlooked, disdained. What  need is there for a machine to reason?  It is worthy of notice that the German National Legend, chosen as such  by- Goethe, is the adventure of Dr.  Faust, who, smitten by truth, poetry,  science, sells his soul to the devil, for  the joys of power and fortune. The  legend has innumerable variations; the  man who sells his ^shadow���������of what  use is a shadow? Freyschutz' black  huntsman. ''Do you think that I gave  you this eagle for nothing?"  Eevenge of the Spirit  This  is the  bargain  which  the  old  Germany of Durer and Luther, of Goe-.  the and of Beethoven, of Leibnitz and  Kant, made with the House of Hohenzollern.   From them   she has   received  power,   order,   discipline,   wealth, luxury;  she has drained  the deep source  of life.   Not  a poet, not a great  artist, not a philosopher. Wagner, Mom-  msen,  Haeckel,  Nietschke himself belong   to   former  generations.   Hohenzollern Germany has had eminent men,  chemists, physiologists, physicians, historians, achaeologists,   scholars of   all  sorts;  all specialists, not one creative  or   generalizing   genius.   I   even   dare  to   state that   even the   military   art,  this   Prussian   National Industry,   has  suffered the same diminution. From a  Moltke to a Hindenburg or to a Mae-  kensen, the descent is manifest. Generals, manufacturers, tradesmen, scholars,  men of letters, journalists^ all are functionaries. A comedian is a functionary.   They wear the costume and* are  docile or servile to fit the role. It was  -tfi   fulfilment of   an   order   that   the  manifesto  '' Intellectuals''    saw    the  day.   It   was   dictated as   a   circular  would be.  Once again I cannot help admiring German stations, German post  offices, German hotels, the Hamburg  docks, German barracks. German universities, German schools, German factories, German fabrics, German laboratories, the whole German organization. Alas! it has done us harm  enough. But at what price has all this  been accomplished? Re-read the "Intellectuals" manifesto of the intellectuals. There was not one German to  protest against the assassination of  Miss Cavell.

These  med������als, while suitable for high  school students, may well be  prized by any competitor, as  they will doubtless be valuable  mementoes of the occasion, and  come to have a value far above  the intrinsic. Essays winning  prizes or deserving of special  recognition, will be published  over the writer's names. The  competition is open to residents  of Greater Vancouver.  The list of subjects is as follows:  1. An essay on Julius Caesar;  open only to high school students  (subject to be announced at time  of writing).

CANADA'S FOREIGN CREDIT  An unexpected effect of the  war has been the satisfactory demonstration of Canada's finan-  cfal credit and its establishment  upon a firmer basis. Before  the war broke out. Canada had  been financing her development,  especially in the west, by the aid  of annual borrowings of some  .$300,000,000 from the British  investor. The outbreak of hostilities in Europe closed that apparently inexhaustible source of  supply and for a time Canada's  financial outlook was very  gloomy indeed.  Nearly twenty months of the  war have proved, however, to the  surprise and satisfaction of every  Canadian, and equally to the surprise and satisfaction of friendly  countries that we were stronger  then we knew. A record crop  sold at war prices, an expanding  export trade in food and munitions have helped Canada as nothing else could have done. Economy and a lessened expenditure  at home has left us more opening for the sale of. our commodities   abroad.  In 1913 the exports exceeded  $400,000,000 and the imports  were considerably over $600,000,^  000.  ���������   In    1915     exports     exceeded  $600,000,000    and    imports   ran  about $400,000,000���������a reverse of  the   situation   the   year   before.  This reverse of conditions is nothing short of a  miracle.      No  thinking person could have , believed   such   a change   possible,  lrat   in   one   short year   it   has  come about. Canada, an habitual  borrower from the mother country, is now actually loaning the  home. government money to finance, war orders on this side of  the ocean. This loan of ,$50,000,-  000 and the promise of a further  one of $75,000,000 marks a,new  era  in   Canadian  financial    history.     We   have  changed    our  standing   from a   debtor   nation  to a creditor nation. In the face  of the Avar-time strain the country has developed new qualities  of  manhood, economy  and  self-  reliance. It   has   passed from a  condition   of dependence to   one  of independence. In less than a  year and a half Canada has become a lender of millions where  it previously   borrowed millions.  And   even    the    United    States  banks are now so satisfied with  the     steady     condition and resourcefulness    of    Canada    that  .they are soliciting us to come to  them for money.    Such a record  surely means.that on the return  of peace Canada will hold a new  place   in the   world.  STEEL SHORTAGE  It is authoritatively stated that  there exists today a world short  age of 70,000,000 tons in iron products.   This is from figures carefully prepared and from reliable  information  analysed  most  conservatively.     With   every   steel  p]ant in the United States work  ing to capacity and orders piled  up   for   months   in   advance, it  would look as   if  that   shortage  would not be overtaken in present  war conditions.   There is no indi  cation that Avar orders will slack  en.    Indeed,  it  is foreshadoAved  that further enormous war orders  are  to  be placed.  An optimistic prediction is that  for three years after the Avar the  nations of Europe Avill import  more iron and steel products than  they export. The theory is that  during the period of reconstruction which must necessarily follow peace, the depletion of stocks  of steel and products in the countries hoAv at Avar will have to be  made up as well, with the consequent result of heaAry importa-  tios. That optimistic prophecy  must be discounted by the meas  lire of. the expansion of industrial  establishments during the Avar in  the countries of Europe. That  expansion, it it true, is noAV en-  tirelydevoted to production of  Avar munitions. But it can Avith  exual facility be adapted to other  industrial activity after the Avar.  That would add to the productive  capacity of European establish  ments,.ahd would tend to meet  the demand and lessen importations.  DIVIDENDS IN SHIPPING  Notwithstanding losses of  steamers through the predaccous  Hun submarines in the North Sea  mid all the Avaters surrounding  the British Isles, those shipping  coinpanies which are in position  to handle freight have been making money. This is in spite of  the effort to keep doAvn freight  rates. The 10 per cent, bonus  giA^en the shareholders of the  Cunard line, in addition to the  regular 10 per cent annual dividend, gives some idea of the enormous profits being made by those  ; steamship companies Avhich have  remained active.  It is said that more ships and  cheaper freights Avill be pne of  the foremost topics for discussion at the Allies Economic Conference in Paris. Though Britain  has added more than a million  tons of the total of shopping under the flag since the beginning  EUROPEAN COPPER  During March 24,000 tons of  copper Avere shipped to Europe  from Atlantic ports. During the  last Aveek of the month, there  were shipped 11,000,tons. Great  Britain has been requisitioning  steamers.to transport copper and  American producers have been  trying to charter vessels. The  gi-eatest effort is being made to  relieve the shortage abroad. The  largest single transaction has  been the purchase by the French  government of approximately 50,-  000 tons, at 27c per pound. The  largest previous purchase Avas  th at of J^OOO^tonsjn.__d_L._b_/ Jhe  British government last December  at a price of 22c per pound. That  purchase is to be delivered during  the entire year 1916, Avhile the  French purchase is contracted for  delivery before October 31, of this  year. Indications point, it is said,  to the re-entrance of the British  government into the copper market for additional requirements  for this year.  Domestic demands for copper  for industrial purposes, both in  Canada and the United States, is  strong. Inquiries in the hands of  large dealers aggregate many millions of pounds, and there is no  sign of slackening in demand. It  is now freely surmised that (increased local demand, added to  the large purchases by allied governments, Avill force the price  over 30 cents.  have no acquaintance with their  neighbors beyond one. or two  stores adjoining their own.

All communications should be addressed to the Editor, and should include the name and address of the  writer as a matter of good faith, and  not necessarily for publication.  Dear Mr. Editor:  I was greatly amused on reading  your editorial in last week's CALL on  the question of "The Weekly Half-  Holiday.''      That,  in   my    opinion,   is  a fair example of what one would say  who is opposed to this up-to-date legislation���������plenty of words, but no facts.  After you have read or heard them,  you wonder what has really been said.  But let us see. ' You grant that it  carries undoubted benefits for the  working class but injustice to the proprietors of certain stores .and lines of  business, citing the bakers as an example.  Now the bill, as proposed at the  joint meeting of retail clerks and employers, calls for tho closing of nearly  all retail stores at the same time, one  afternoon a week, Saturday being chosen by an overwhelming majority as  tho most satisfactory day.  For years the retail merchants have  been trying to get a weekly half-holiday one district after another agreeing  to close on a certain day; but after  a few weeks it has generally ended  by one store after another breaking  through the ropes for one reason or  another, until the state of things was  as bad  as before.  These merchants all agree that they  ought to close but are afraid that one  fellow may stay open and get a few  dollars ahead. Generally it is the  smaller stores that are the greatest  offenders in this respect. After years  of such attempts we know it is useless to try without having a provincial  act making the movement compulsory.  What could be the effect of such, an  act? You say it would involve a  measure of injustice to the proprietors  of certain stores. AVhy? If ALL retail stores closed Saturday at 1 o'clock  and Friday night at 9:30, how could it  injure anyone? It would, on the contrary, help to make competition on* a  more equal footing. It will not close  one section of the city at a different  tim,e from another. The people of  Mt. Pleasant would not be able to  shop down-town when their own stores  were closed."  As for deliveries, it will help rather  than hinder them. People can do their  ordering Friday night to have the  benefit of Saturday morning delivery,  instead of ordering the general groceries and calling later tocarry home the  fancy lines for Sunday. I do not see  how this can affect any particular  store.  You mention the bakers. How do they  manage on a .holiday now?., On., the  first of .July coming they will be  cosed, and they will not make any  kick. I have never yet heard them  make any. They "will double up deliveries and work a little harder with  pleasure for the sake of a holiday.  If they can manage such a situation,  why cannot they handle the Saturday  afternoon situation equally well. Every  bread driver I have asked says this  could be easily adjusted. All bread  is baked Friday night. The trouble  is the bakers are often the big offenders, spoiling the trade and gaining  nothing by it.       I think the   bakers'  idea is to have the stores closed se  they can do the retail business without  interference 'and save the- grocers' profit of one cent a loaf. -  ;������������������ You - mention the fact that -. storekeepers are against being coerced into  closing their stores at particular hours  but that they would iheet the situation  by giving each clerk a half-holiday at  their own discretion. Poor, afflicted  storekeepers. Why should' their liberty be encroached upon? Why should  they not be allowed to keep open until 10 o'clock every night and on a  holiday if they choose, when they have  to pay for it? Yes, one Mt. Pleasant  merchant said he would be open on  Sunday   if   the law did   not prohibit.  These stores on the hill that are  against the holiday would be the last  to ever give their clerks a holiday.  If a law went into effect giving al_  clerks a general holiday each week it  would disorganize business. Besides,  no general holiday sports, picnics or  games could be arranged for, because  here and there some would be off for  the afternoon, others would not. It  would be  no holiday at  all.  The only people who have any excuse to be exempt that I can see are  the news stands, soda fountains, delicatessens, cafes and drug stores, for the  sale of medicine. Tobacco and fruit  should be prohibited, as people can  easily see that they have a supply of  these articles   ahead.  What would be the result of such  an act?  With all stores closed Saturday afternoon wc would not have the mjlleni-  um, but the next door to it. As I  said, the customers would be benefitted by Friday evening shopping and  Saturday morning delivery. The stores  would have Saturday changed to Friday with ��������� the benefit of . Saturday  morning to sell off their over-stocks  and replenish shortages to fill orders  on hand. We would also have the  benefit of getting. Saturday orders in  du Friday and making a general early  delivery on Saturday morning.  It would also mean that this city,  would put on a new air and get, out  of the old rut and get some life in it.  It would mean a better kept Sunday,  for after Saturday's exercise, one  would be far  more  inclined   to  spend  his Sunday as a real  day of rest, t^  be better fitted for the coming weel  FRED  ROLSTON,  Mt.

Pleasant  and Aricinity. The suggestion  that a place of meeting be selected Avhere the members might  take lunch together weekly seems  to meet Avith the most general  approval. What is Avaiited is  not so much amusement or business co-operation as just ordinary acquaintance and good-fel-  loAvship. There are many business men  here   on the   hill avIio  A small, and yet an important  matter, Avhich has been overlooked in many of our cities  and towns, is the provision of  drinking fountains. Fountains are  especially necessary for horses,  dogs and birds. The general public can usually find a place to  quench thirst, but not so the  dumb animals. The supplying  and placing of fountains is not  an expensive matter, and should  be undertaken by the community. Iu municipalities Avhich  place a tax upon horses and dogs,  the supplying of drinking fountains Avould in a small Avay justify  this  tax.  Drinking fountains Avould also  encourage birds to remain in the  cities. Much money has. been  expended by municipalities in  fighting insect destroyers of  shade trees, Avhen not the slight  est effort has been made to protect the birds���������the natural enemy of insects.  CANADA from her abundance can help supply the Empire's needs,  and this must be a comforting thought for those upon whom the  heavy burden of directing the Empire's affairs has been laid. Gain or  no gain the course before the farmers of Canada is as clear as it was  last year���������they must produce abundantly in order to meet the demands  that may be made, and I believe this to be especially true in regard to  live stock, the world's supply of which must be particularly affected in  this vast struggle. Stress and strain may yet be in store for us all  before this tragic conflict is over, but not one of us doubts the issue,  and Canadians will do their duty in the highest sense of that great  word."���������flW.

SALADS AND SAUCES  Under the head of salads all preparations  of uncooked, herbs or vegetables is placed. They  are usually dressed with salt, vinegar, oil and  spices. Sometimes they are combined with meat  or shell fish, as chicken, veal, lobster, etc. They  are used chiefly as relishes with other food.  Sauces are generally used to impart a relish  to articles of food. Sometimes vegetables are  employed as the basis of sauces, but they are  compounded chiefly of savory condiments,, that  they may add zest to eating.  Meat or fish used in salads should not be  minced, but rather picked apart, or cut in pieces  of moderate size. Cabbage, celery, asparagus,  cauliflower, water-cress, and all kinds of lettuce  are the vegetables best adapted for use in salads. They must be used when quite fresh and  crisp, and all the ingredients used in their  dressing must be of the best quality and flavor.  Coldslaw  With a sharp knife, or, better, with a knife  made for the purpose, cut up into fine shavings  a firm head of cabbage; sprinkle with as much  salt and pepper as you deem necessary; beat  up the yolk of. one egg, add a. lump of butter  the size of a walnut, a gill of cream, the same  quantity pf vinegar, a tablespoonful of sugar,  an even teaspoonful of mustard, and a pinch  of bruised celery seed. Heat these condiments  together, without boiling,, and pour over the  sliced cabbage; then toss it with a fork until  thoroughly mixed. Allow time for it .to, cool  before   serving.  Cabbage Salad  Take one head of fine, white cabbage, minced  fine; three hard boiled eggs; two tablespoonfuls  of salad oil; two teaspoonfuls white sugar; one-  teaspoonful salt; one teaspoonful pepper; one  teaspoonful made mustard; one teacupful vinegar.   Mix and pour upon the chopped cabbage.  . Potato Salad -  Steam and slice the potatoes; add a very  little raw onion chopped very fine, and a little  parsley, and1 pour over the whole a nice salad  dressing. Serve either warm or cold, as may be  preferred.  *' ���������  .'��������� *. *.   *   ���������  Chicken Salad  Boil a small chicken until very tender.  When entirely cold, remove the skin and fat,  cut the meat into small bits, then cut the white  part of. the stalks of eelery into pieces bf  smaller size, until you have twice as much eel  . ery as meat. Mix the chicken and eelery together; pour on Durkee's Salad Dressing, and  stir all thoroughly. Cold veal used in place of  chicken will also make a very excellent salad,   i  Salmon Salad  For a pound can of salmon, garnished with  lettuce, make a dressing of one small teacupful  of vinegar, butter half the size of an egg, one  of cayenne pepper, onerhalf teaspoonful of salt,  one teaspoonful of sugar, two eggs. When  cold, add one-half teacupful of cream and pour  over the salmon.  * *   *   *  Horse-radish Sauce  Take one tablespoonful of grated horse-radish, a dessertspoonful of  mustard, half  a  teaspoonful of sugar; then add vinegar, and stir it  smooth.   Serve in  a  sauce-tureen.  *    *   ������   #  Tomato Sauce  Stew one-half dozen tomatoes with a little  chopped parsley; salt and pepper to taste;  strain, and when it commences to boil add a tablespoonful of flour, stirred smooth with the  same quantity of butter.      When it boils it is  ready  to  take up.  * *   #    *  Celery Sauce  Pick and wash two heads, of celery; cut them  into pieces one inch long, and stew them in a  pint of water, with one teaspoonful of salt, until the celery is tender. Rub a large spoonful of  butter and a spoonful of flour well together;  stir this into a pint of cream; put in the celery,  and let it boil up once. Serve hot with boiled  poultry.  * ,#   ���������   #  Lemon Sauce  One-half a cupful of butter, one cupful of  sugar,   yolks   of two   eggs, one teaspoonful   of  corn-starch. Beat the eggs and sugar until light;  add the grated rind and juice of one.lemon. Stir  the whole into three gills of boiling water until  it thickens sufficiently for the table.  '���������*���������*���������.*.���������'  Plain French Dressing  A plain French dressing is made simply-of  salt, pepper, oil and vinegar. Three tablespoonfuls of oil to one of vinegar, saltspoon heaping  full of salt, an even saltspoonful of pepper mixedXvith a little cayenne.  #'#.,*,#  v Mayonnaise Sauce  Work the yolks of two raw eggs to a smooth  paste, and add two saltspoonfuls of salt, half a  saltspoonful of cayenne, a saltspoonful of ,dry  mustard and a teaspoonful of oil; mix these  thoroughly and add the strained juice of half  a lemon. Take what remains of half a pint of  olive oil and add it gradually, a teaspoonful at  a time, and every fifth teaspoonful add "a few  drops of lemon juice until you have used two  iemons and the half-pint of oil.

When shampooing the hair never rub soap  directly on it, but make a. shampoo with soap  melted in boiling water. Be sure that you  rinse the hair thoroughly so that it will b_ free  from the soap, as nothing will ruin the golden  glints of blonde hair quicker than soap if it is  allowed to remain in the hair. The juice of  half a lemon added to the last rinsing water is  good for retaining the golden color in the hair.  The best way to keep down flesh is by diet and  exercise. I do not believe in internal remedies  for reducing flesh. Take long walks in the  open air, do not eat fat making foods, such as  greasy meats, starchy foods, tea, coffee, or sweet  rich things.     Eat  simple  nourishing foods.  ������    ���������    ���������     X  Lanolin is the foundation of nearly all of  the creams and skin foods. It has the effect of  soothing and nourishing the skin, replacing the  natural oils that are washed out in the use of  too much soap and water, or by neglect in  keeping the skin clean. There is not any fat  quite   so beautifying.  ��������� ������������������.-#*'*'  Hangnails usually are caused from improper manicuring. When the,cuticle is kept pushed back and the flesh kept free around the nails  .hang nails will not appear. When the cuticle  grows upon the nails it splits,,, and then the  skin peels down, causing painful hang nails.  Cut them off as close as ou can with small  curved scissors. Never pull them off. The only  way to rid yourself of them is by keeping the  nails properly mauncured. You can easily  learn  to   manicure   your   nails yourself.   It   is  not  diffictult to  do.  * *   #  One bad habit which most people overlook is  keeping the mouth open while awake or sleeping. The lips should, be kept closed, except  when talking or eating. I do not mean tightly  closed, so as to form a hard line or pucker, but  just closed in   an   agreeable smile.    The   habit  of keeping the mouth open, either waking or  sleeping, is bad for the health. Particles of  matter accumulate around the neck of the teeth  and in the cracks from such exposure. The  membranes - covering-the- gums and- lining-the-  lips and mouth at the same time lose their natural delicacy and healthy character, growing  unpleasant,   parched   and   stiff, so   that speech  becomes  difficult   and  imperfect. **  * *   *  Elbows that have been neglected show a  thickened circle of cuticle covered with "goose"  flesh. To reduce this pulverized pumice stone  sometimes is necessary, and massage must be  employed three or four times a day, working  a good deal of the skin food into the elbows.  At night when retiring cover the elbows with  thick applications of the skin food, and then  bandage them. If you will persist in this treatment they will soon become presentable, and  after  they have  grown so- they should receive  the same daily care as the hands.  * ���������    ���������  Bad skin does not exist where there is good  circulation. This fact is so well understood  by masseuses that they often overdo the massage. Ignoring the construction of the skin  and its underlying tissues and the fact that no  two people have exactly the same sort of skin  they often bring about the desired circulation  at the expense of dispersing that fatty tissue  whieh  lies  beneath  the  surface.  * ' *   *  Massage the arms with warm cocoa butter  or olive oil. This will help to make them  plump. An excellent exercise for developing  the arms is as follows: With ��������� arms at the side,  inhale deeply, clench the fists, flex the elbows, bring fists to shoulder, moving the lower  arm only and resisting the movement partly.  Now, with the first shoulder level high and held  there, bring elbows slowly out and up to shoulder level; the third part of the movement is to  carry the fists close under he arm pits and  back as far as possible, cross the fists high up  on the back, and then lower them easily to the  sides. Every part of the exercise includes resistance. Lifting weights from the floor is also  good to enlarge the arm. To do this take a long  step forward and bend to the floor with the  hands touching the floor, take a deep breath,  clench the fists, and pull the arms up as if lifting a   heavy   weight.  FOKKERS ATTACK  WITH CONE OF FIRE  Mijinheer Pokker is a Dutchman,  about twenty-three or twenty-four  years of age, who has lived in Germany for many years and was one  of the first aviators in Germany.  Somewhere* about 1911 or 1912 he built  a weird looking uncapsizable monoplane, which flew quite well long before the scientists of other countries  had put their theories into practice and  had produced the "inherently stable"  biplane of which so much has been  heard in this country. There was at the  time some question of these early Fok-  ker monoplanes being imported by one  of Britain's flying services, but the  construction was so bad that the inspecting officers did not dare to ask'  British pilots to risk their lives in  them.  The new Fokkers are the very opposite to the maker's early effort. All  attempt at "inherent stability" has  gone, and they are designed to be absolutely under the control of the pilot  in every position. This is what makes  them such dangerous opponents, as  they can manoeuvre with lightning  speed.  Most of the machines are fitted with  Ueberursel rotary engines, whieh are  a German copy of the Gnome. They  give about 110 to 120 horse power,  and consequently, although the machine  is not very efficient in its design, it is  forced through the air at tremendous  speed and can climb at an alarming  rate. Those flown by Immelmann and  Bolcke are fitted with huge engines of  the fixed cylinder motor car type of  seemingly 100 to 150' horse power, and  they have a speed of well over 100  miles an hour.  Most of these machines carry a passenger in front who works a machine  gun, but others, including those of the  two "star turns," have a gun fixed  on the top of the engine and firing  through the propellor (or rather the  tractor-screw, to be technically correct.) In the latter case the gun is  aimed by steering the whole aeroplane  to suit, like Judson's flat-iron gunboat in Mr. Kipling's story.  The favorite method of attack is  for the Fokker to get up high���������to  about 1,500 feet or so���������and hang  ���������around till one of the allies' machines  appears in sight below. Then, if of  the fixed type, the Fokker stands on  its head and dives straight for its  victim, loosing off a stream of bullets  as soon as it gets within range. By  making the descent ever so slightly  spiral the straight stream of bullets  becomes a cone of fire with its apex  at the gun and with the victim inside,  so that whichever way the lower machine tries to escape it must pass  through that  cone.  When the Fokker gets close to its  enemy, if he has not already been  hit, it approaches directly from behind,  firing straight along the body or fus-  ilage, so as tp have the pilot, passenger, tanks and engine all in one line  of fire; and unless the pursued machine, is very quick on its controls and  is able to dodge like a rabbit some  vital part is bound to be hit sooner  or  later.  Many of the Fokkers-fire through  their propellors. It appears that the  propellor blades are fitted with ��������� deflector plates to turn aside such bullets as hit -the blades. Only about  five or six bullets in a hundred are  likely to hit the plates, and the remaining ninety odd pass between, the  blades straight for their .target. This  deflector dodge was first tried by the  French aviator Garros, who was shot  down and captured in Flanders some  months ago.  The Fokkers which do not fire  through their propellors almost always attack their victims from be-^  hidd.'diving^uhdeF" their tails and  coming up in such a position that,  while they can shoot up into the body  of the pursued machine, the passenger in that machine, even if sitting  behind the pilot, cannot shoot at the  Fokker for fear of blowing his own  tail off.  Neither knife board nor powder, for  example, is required if a large bottle  cork be first slightly moistened with  water, then scorched, or else dipped in  well-charred and finely pulverized  wood, or brick dust; plate powder becomes superfluous where old gas mantles can be ground down, sifted  through muslin, and applied on a damp  rag; and brass polish finds its equivalent in a squeezed lemoiigkin, coated  with either whitening or with salt.  The same medium replaces sand and  bathbrick in /the scouring of tables  and copper utensils; banana rinds save  the purchase of creams for brown  leather leggings and boots; orange peel  produces a nice glogs upon patent  leather; and shredded candle ends advantageously supersede beeswax in  polish for furniture and floors, says  Kate L. B. Moorhead.  Goal ashes sprinkled on a rag, wetted with paraffin, remove rust from  and brighten steel as successfully as  bathbrick and oi; bended with a simiar  bulk of dust from the scuttles, slaked  and employed as a slacking for fires,  substantially reduce the fuel bill;  whie, when sifted, they lighten garden  soil more cheaply than sand and may  even, if carefully stamped in, supply  the place of gravel on paths. The  sweepings from the dustpan, screwed  up in a newspaper, and potato parings crisped in a slow oven, provide  knidlings galore; dried orange rinda,  burnt matches welded together with  candle gutterings, cocoanut shells and  empty nightlight cases, all ignite embers as quickly as patent "revivers";  and soot cleared from foul chimneys is  a horticulture fertilizer,  dent of the Skeena Copper Co., Limited, has seven men working on a  tunnel on the Bed Eose, near Hazelton.

We are on deck in a jiffy  [id   there   we   remain,   regard-  oiXthe    breakfast    hour,  finking in the ravishing beauty  mountain   valley   and   palm-  fihged beach.   This is our first  Ight of the real tropics on this  Wrney, and we  do  not intend  |) be cheated out of any of it.  It is a surprise���������indeed, some-  rhat   of, a   shock���������to   find   the  "'ijis     so    mountainous.       The  ieight  of the  highest mountain  [s nearly   a   mile. Somehow   we  lad always thoiight of these as  [ow-lying islands.   But  the   for-  lation of the  Pijis is volcanic,  although   supplemented by   cor-  il structure in certain parts.  We entered Suva Harbor about  o'clock, and were not long in  |transferring   to   the   Grand   Pa-  sific, the only good hotel in the  *>lace,    and   within    convenient  Iwalking distance   of   the   pier.  ISuva is not a large town, nor a  [very   bustling   one, needless    to  Isay, but  it  is  prettily laid  out  |on the slopes of the hills that rise  from the waterfront to the moun-  A  |tains beyond. The cable station,  >ublic library,  museum,  moving  ricture   theatre,   Grand   Pacific  [otel, Government   House     and  *arliament buildings are    about  the   main  objects    of    interest,  ["here   are small   botanical gar-  lens near the hotel which dwarf  Into insignificance when we  re-  lember those of Sydney.  The weather is hot and sultry  today, but  the  islands  have an  [enviably healthy  climate.  January 28.���������We have enjoyed  [three little side trips by launch,  [to   Mbau,  the   home of the   old  J Fijian   aristocracy;������ to ���������-���������Leyaka,-  | the centre of the cocoanut industry on a nearby island; and up  the   Navua   river to the   sugar  mills.      The climate of. the Fiji  islands does not  seem  to  interfere   with   agriculture or   commerce in the least, sugar, copra  and bananas being produced and  exported to the value of several  million dollars annually. Of late  years cattle grazing has been  much talked of, and will probably be experimented with by  a Sydney firm shortly.  Fiji is beautiful, restful, and  eminently sanitarjr. Good accommodation is provided for health-  seekers and tourists at all times  of the year. The only drawback to life in the islands is the  hurricane season, but severe hurricanes are not as frequent as  they are in other parts of the  South Pacific or in the China  Sea.  January 29.���������The R. M. S.  Niagara, Captain Rolls, arrived at 8 o'clock this morning  and sailed again at 3 p.m. for  Honolulu. We look back upon  our three days in the Fijis with  genuine regret. Passed through  the tail of a hurricane tonight  which sent us all below early.  The passenger list is less than  half the size of that of the Ma-  kura on the outward voyage; but  the cuisine and general appointments of the Niagara are infinitely superior to those of her sister liner.  February 3. ��������� Tomorrow we  will reach Honolulu about noon,  leaving again about eleven in  the evening. On January 30 we  picked up the day we lost on our  outward voyage, spending two  Saturdays in succession. We  crossed the equator' about 6 p.m.  on Sunday,'January 31, and have  noticed a very perceptible cooling in the atmosphere as we  journeyed north. The voyage has  been without unusual incident���������-  the same deck sports, the same  little suppers in the saloon ahd  musical evenings in the music  room, the same informal dances,  but all on a much smaller scale  than formerly.

"Buy Goods Made at Home, and get both the  Goods and the Money.'-'  Honolulu from the sea. It is a  lively city and more northerly  than tropical in its general aspect. There are several very  excellent tourist hotels and dozens of good boarding houses in  the city as well as at Waikiki  beach, the noted seaside resort,  where surf bathing can be enjoyed to better advantage and  with greater safety than anywhere else in the world. X  As we had such a comparatively short time to sqe Honolulu, we  motored out to Waikiki and on  to Diamond Head, where an extinct volcanic crater" is made to  serve as a fortress and arsenal.  On the way back to the city we  visited the Aquarium, where we  saw what is perhaps the mqat  curious collection of fish and sea  animals in existence. We would  never have believed there could  could be fish of all the colors of  the rainbow, fish striped like a  penitentiary suit, fish with their  eyes along their bellies, fish of  such fantastic shapes and colors  that it seemed as if they must  have been taken from fairy  books. There are also excellent  camples of live devilfish, starfish, sponges, etc.  We paid a visit to the pineapple canneries, the largest of.  their kind in the world, and also  motored out to a pineapple plantation about four miles from the  city, where we purchased some  ten and twelve pound pineapples at ten cents each to take  aboard ship  with us.  After this we returned to the  city by way of the Pali road, and  motored about town, taking in  Chinatown, Japtown, Koreatown,  and the select residential quarter. After dinner at the Alexander Young Hotel we went up  to the roof garden to listen to a  Hawaiian band concert, under  the shelter of palms of every  description, and fanned by delightful tropic breezes. It is  little wonder Honolulu is such a  popular health and pleasure resort. Living, however, is not  by any means cheap here.  We left Honolulu about half  past ten amid the cheering of a  large crowd of people gathered  at the piers to bid goodbye to  a contingent of British reservists going to the war. The strains  of the Hawaiian National song,  '' Aloha, Oe,'' were the last  sounds heard as we bade farewell to sunny seas and tropic  isles for many a day to come.  February 11.���������We have passed  a most uncomfortable week since  leaving Honolulu, being spoiled  by so much sunshine and heat  since leaving home, and, therefore, .not-taking kindly, to this  abrupt change to a northern  winter climate. We have had  head winds and high seas since  the day after we left the Hawaiian Islands. This morning as  we lie trying to take our second nap we are awakened by the  steward's cry, "All on deck for  the doctor." We are at William Head.  Since November 26 we have  covered a little over 19,750 miles  of land and sea and have been  treated to a great variety of  climate and scene. To say this is  an enjoyable trip would be to  put it too mildly." It is a liberal  education, and there is not one  foot of those thousands of miles  we would not wish to travel  over again in the hope of seeing those interesting countries in  greater detail.  I cannot do better in conclusion than to append a sample  menu of the liner Makura in order that those who might purpose taking this route to Australia may be able to judge of  the fare provided for the cabin  passengers.

(The End)  A JUVENILE MATCHMAKER  ENDERSON rushed into the dingy  suburban railway station much  the same as he rushed about his  business affairs. As he closed the  door he was greeted by four of his  college frknds, all returning after the  Christmas vacation.  While engaged in conversation with  his friends an elderly man approached,  stretched out his hand in greeting, and  asked if Henderson was returning to  the college town. Answered in the  affirmative, the man requested a favor  of Henderson���������that he assist his  daughter, who tvas a school teacher in  the college town, to her home.  With visions of a scrawny, bespectacled, elderly schoolma'am, Henderson  obligingly accepted the duty of escort,  agreeing to report soon to meet the  teacher.  He put off the meeting until he  heard the train whistle for the station. Then he made his way to the  women's waiting room ,where, to. his  surprise, he beheld a bright and vivacious girl of 23 years, with a merry  twinkle in here eyes-  Henderson's surprise was manifest  in his countenance when introduced  and his eyes clearly conveyed his  thoughts���������rthat the girl -was good to  look upon.  Boarding the crowded train, it became convenient for them to sit together and soon they found much to  talk about of interest to both.  Then "Buss" appeared on the  scene. "Buss" was a little girl about  four years old. Her real name was  Margaret, but because she kept up  a continual chatter her mother called  her "Buss." She manifested a keen  interest in Henderson and the teacher.  Finally she broke away from her  mother and crowded into the seat with  them.  Turning her large brown orbs upon  Henderson she saked: "Do you like  her?" The question proved disconcerting, to say the least, but finally  Henderson managed to stammer that  he did. Then the same brown orbs  turned to the teacher with the same  inquiry. Blushing profusely, the  teacher stammered much the same answer as did Henderson. Then "Buss"  acted. She took the teacher's hand  and placed it into that of Henderson  with this exclamation: "Now you are  married." ���������  Then her mother took her away with  a severe reprimanding. But the mischief had been done. After landing  his charge safely at her boarding-  house, Henderson tried to forget it  all, but he was not successful.  Then came a day when he met the  teacher face to face on the street.  Both smiled and Henderson accompanied her to her boarding-house. When  he left some time later he took her  promise to attend the theatre two  nights later. There were other occasions that they met, and frequent  ones, too. They married two years  later .and have liver.- happily ever  since.  "Buss"' was the agent of Cupid.  A MID-SUMMER TIT-BIT���������GUINEA  POWli.  The man of the bouse wants to know  why guinea fowl is not served oftenerj  it is such a  delicious dish.  There are many reasons; the birds,  are small and retail from 70 cents to'  $1.25 each, so perhaps that is the  principal one. Another is that the  little guineas are exceedingly tender;  they must have especial care until two  weeks old. The mother bird invariably  steals her nest and if she escapes  skunks, weasels, prowling minks and  slinky cats long enough to hatch the  feathery mites they become wet in the  dew of  early 'mornings  and die.  All this discourages farm women  from trying to supply the market with  guineas. The few that are sold are  often tough from advanced age, for  once grown this fowl will live fifteen  or twenty years. * They become great  pets ahd are as useful as a watch dog  on a farm. They sound a shrill alarm  when a stranger approaches and bravely fight furred night prowlers like rats  and weasels.  . The flesh of guineas is dark colored, but yery sweet tasting and full  of flavor when nicely prepared.  Pluck, singe, draw and cut the bird  as with chicken. It is most always  dry picked as the feathers have a  commercial value and this, think, keeps  the  meat well  flavored.  To fricassee, first render the fat  from a quarter of a pound of fine  bacon. Now fry the fowl; it should  cook very brown and be well seasoned.  To attain the brown crust, so well  liked, some cooks dredge each piece  of meat lightly with flour, seasoned  with   salt  and  pepper.  Put the guinea in a deep tureen as  soon as it is cooked tender and make  a rich gravy of the fat ahd juices in  the frying pan. Pour this over the  tureen   of  meat.  With this serve croquettes of potato, buttered green peas and hot biscuit.  Panned broiled guinea is truly a  luxury for it can only be made with  very tender young birds. Split a  brace of guinea down the back and  remove what our Dinah calls "the  innards.'' Do not wash, but wipe very  dry with a soft cloth. Mix salt, pepper and Paprika together in a shaker  and dredge the birds inside and but  with the mixture. Now beat them with  the side of a cleaver so they will  lie flat and cook evenly in the pan.  Brush them well with melted butter  and when the frying pan is very hot  lay them in; There will be some  smoke at first, but this will go in a  moment and you can turn them, and  cook   the   other   side.  They should be turned every five  minutes and after they are well started to cook the heat must be reduced.  In fact the process of panning guineas  is exactly like panning broiling steak.  When done dish them and ��������� add  minced parsley, a little butter and  half as much boiling water as you  have fat in the pan and pour all them  over the birds. If you like currant  ���������jelly on meat you may put two tablespoons of it with this liquor, but  usually the home cooks serve it separately.  Chapel Becomes a Larder.  '' There is no town in the world, not  even Paris, where patriotism is more  of a religion than at Lyons. And to  the, Lyonese, therefore, it can seem  no sacrilege that the chapel adjoining the 'salle des fetes' should have  been converted into & larder, stored  with slabs of bread, tins of meat, jars  of jam, fringes of sausages, all destined for the defenders of la patrie.  "From the .town hall radiate  throughout Lyons all manner of activities. The mayor is especially n-  terested in the re-education of crippled  soldiers. For this purpose the municipality has opened two technical schools  ���������one down in the valley at La Each-  ais, the other on the height of ]j|our-  viers, which dominates Lyons as Fiesole  does Florence. In these two institutions some 400 crippled pupils are receiving instruction in gardening, toy  making, shoemaking, book binding,  bookkeeping, modern languages, tailoring, surgical instrument making and  even wireless telegraphy.  "But the most interesting of all the  mayor's enterprises is that which he  describes as 'war's gift to peace.' A  little way out of the town on the banks  of the Rhone, 200 German prisoners  are constructing an enormous stadium.  It: was begun before the war, one of  the many evidences of that passion  for athletics and outdoor lifewhich has  overtaken France in the twentieth century.  /F  PHONE SEYMOUB 0086  .KEEP  Your papers and Valuables in  A PRIVATE BOX  In our Safety Vault  $2.50 PER ANNUM  Dow Fraser Trust Co.  122  Hastings St.  West  Ottawa, Canada  PRINGLE   &   GUTHRIE  Barristers and Solicitors  Clive Pringle.

GIRLS' SEWING CLUB  The Girls' Sewing Club meets each  Tuesday for Red Cross work and are  doing excellent work for the soldiers.  Recently they gave a concert in the  Seymour street Sunday School Hall  and-realized a gratifying amount with  which to purchase materials for future  work. Those taking part in the program were Jean Henderson, Margaret  Ramsay, Edith Phillips, Madge His-  lop, Susis Roberts, Annie Orr, Helen  Henderson, Grace Pritchard, Amy  Mutch, Beatrice Wheelwright, Marjorie  Wheelwright, Sadie Comeau, Mary de  Carlo, Bertha Ross, Eleanor Baird,  Elvira Walters, Alice Morrow, Louise  Dick and Maggie Griegen.  One of the items on the program  was the Butterfly dril whieh was very  pretty. Several little girls representing butterflies appeared on the stage  and took their parts, each one leaving  thestage in turn till finally one little  girl remained all alone.k Nobody was  going to love her till finally little  Master Morrow claimed her and took  her away. The children were assisted  in their concert by Mrs. Timberlake,  Miss Spies and Mrs. Gilland. The  girls are between the ages of ten and  sixteen and arc doing valuable wosk  for the society.  Made Him Look Small.  As one would expect, W. W. Jacobs  has a wonderful fund of anecdotes;  indeed, it is doubtful if any humorist  of today could equal him as a story  teller. J  For instance, there is his tale of a  lawyer who was defending a man accused of housebreaking.  "I submit," he said to the judge,  "that my client did not break into the  house'at. all. He found' the kitchen  window open and merely inserted his  right arm and removed a few trifljng  articles. Now, my client's arm is not  himself, and I fail to see how you can  punish the whole individual for an offense committed by only one of his  limbs."  The judge smiled with a superior  smile.  "That argument is very well put!"  he said. "Following it logically, I  sentence the prisoner's arm to one  year's imprisonment. He can accompany it or not as he chooses."  The prisoner, gave a polite bow and,  with his lawyer's assistance, unscrewed  his arm and leaving it in the dock,  walked calmly out of the court.  VANCOUVER HEIGHTS REP CROSS  Mrs. Glen and Mrs. Griffin, 3964-5  Pender Street East, very kindly opened their homes for a most successful whist drive and dance held on  Wednesday evening last in aid of the  material fund of the Vancouver Hgts,  branch of the Red Cross Society.  There were about eighty membess and  their friends present and a most en-  poyable evening was spent. Court  whist was played, the pretty prizes  being won by Miss L. Hay and Mr.  Young, while Mrs. Wood and Mr.  Louis D. Taylor were awarded consolation prizes. Dainty refreshments  were then served by the ladies, after which dancing -was indulged in  till the "wee sma' oor ayont the  twal." J  During the evening the beautiful  basketdonated to the branch by Mr.  Gordon Drysdale was drawn for. The  winning number, 85, was held by Mr.  A. Mathews.

Home-made candies  in dainty baskets and cigars were  sold dusing the evening, and the gratifying sum of $50   was   realized.  SYNOPSIS   OP   COAL   MINING  REGULATIONS  She Came Out Ahead.  He was one of those clever people  who are always trying to take off some  one, and his latest selected victim was  a woman bus conductor. It was in  London.  "Dardanelles, please," he said, with  a grin, tendering a penny as she came  for the fares.  Nothing happened until the vehicle  passed a recruiting office. Then the  fair conductor tugged at the bell rope  and announced loudly:  "Change here for the Dardanelles."

The good work being done ,by  the Vancouver Musical Society  in presenting the world's great:  est composers, and training nxu-  sicians in their performance $���������  awakening the public to an (appreciation of the beauties ,, of  these masterpieces. The support  accorded by the public has been  very gratifying to those who  have worked hard to promote  the organization of a first-class  choral and orchestral society.  The Vancouver Musical Society was organized in 1911 under the auspices of the Vancouver School Board. The first work  presented was Sterndale Bennett 's '' May Queen.'' In follpw-  ing seasons "Festival Te Deum"  (Sullivan); "The Messiah"  (Handel), three performances,  and "The Hymn of Praise"  (MmdfelssoM) "have "been" given*  as well as several miscellaneous  programmes. This season Menh  delssohn's great oratorio, "Elijah," will be given with a large  chorus and full orchestral accompaniment.  Renders the Best Music  The orchestral branch began  with a few young players, some  of whom still remain with the  society and have developed  great proficiency, while others,  both amateur and professional;  have been added until the orchestra numbers between thirty  and forty players capable of rendering the best class of music.  Under the leadership of 'Mr.  George P. Hicks, who has been  annually re-elected president and  conductor, many talented vocalists have been attracted to the  society, some of. whom have appeared' as soloists and met with  hearty appreciation. In order to  provide a certain amount of variety together with the highest  quality the society is . not re  stricted to its membership in the  selection  of  soloists.  For the production of Mendelssohn 's " Elijah," which takes  place on Tuesday, April 18, the  principal parts will be taken by  Mrs. Chandler Sloan, of Tacoma,  Miss Eileen Maguire, of Vancouver,   Mr. Gideon Hicks, of Vic  toria, and Mr. Alexander Wallace '. of this city.  ; Mrs. Sloan has appeared on  two previous occasions with the  society in "The Messiah" and  those ;> who heard her will have  a pleasing recollection of her  excellent rendition of the soprano . solos. Mr. Gideon Hicks  is well known to Vancouver music lovers as an accomplished  singer and would make an  ideal Elijah, his fine bass voice  and excellent control being especially suited to the important  parts allotted to him. Miss  Eileen Maguire needs no introduction to Vancouver audiences  and may be relied upon to give  a most satisfactory rendition of  her solos. Mr. Wallace is a  recent acquisition to the musical  world of Vancouver, a* young  man possessed of a fine, tenor  voice, who gives promise of notable ' achievements as a soloist  Auditorium Needed  The growing popularity of the  Vancouver Musical Society has  emphasized the need for a suitable auditorium for large gatherings. The erection of a mu-  nicipal concert hall would meet  the approval of a great number  of. those interested, both as performers and audience in these  productions.  Previous performances which  have been given in the city  churches would have filled a  large building had such been  available;, For, the -comings performance of "Elijah" the Mt.  Pleasant Presbyterian church  has been secured. This has the  largest seating capacity of any  church in the city, and is readily accessible by all the principal  carlines.  For the convenience of those  who wish ,to avoid waiting for  the doors to open a certain number of seats will be reserved  until 8 o'clock, tickets for which  may be obtained at EA'ans' Music  Store. The date of opening of  reserved seat sale will be announced later.  Owing to the length of the  programme and the necessity of  continuity in the successive  numbers, it is desired that the  audience be seated before 8 o '-  clock, so that the performance  may begin promptly and the  doors may be closed to avoid  interruption.  Two young South   Vancouver  people, Mr. Henry Alexander  Armstrong and Miss Agnes  Crawford, were united in marriage on Tuesday evening by  Rev. J. R. Robertson in the St.  David's Presbyterian church  Miss Margaret Clark acted as  bridesmaid, and Private Colin C.  Crawford as groomsman. The  young couple have gone to Victoria for a short honeymoon.

Private Sniggs had beed badly  wounded, but it wasn't that which  made him frown and" mutter to himself. \  "Wot's up, \matcy?" willed another  wounded Tommy from the * next bed  in the sunny ward of a big hospital  in England.  "Well, it's this way," was the  reply, after a bit of hesitation.
