Lord Kitchener not the Iron Man he has been Short course a a in woodworking i a classes for boys in Rural centres x in Lui vol being arranged instruction Roosevelt dominates the shyness caused misunderstanding of his character declare his closest friends House where general Gordon had been a. Of practical nature a i ii use who read general Hughes remark about Ilia conversation with Kitchener to the effect that Kitchener Eves hued with tears when he poke of the British losses must have received a new idea of the great Soldier who was lost in the sinking of the Hampshire. The conventional idea of Kitchener is that he was a Mere machine a Man impervious to sentiment. Uninterested in men except As pawns in the great War game and not interested at All in women. But it la Likely to he with Kitchener As with others we beam to understand them after they Are no More. Those who knew Kitchener Are now speaking out. One of them is a sex attache a a Veteran Diplomat who was an old Friend and who is now a prominent writer in Hie rutted states press. He relates in the Pittsburg dispatch a talk he had with Kitchener in 1910, when he was passing through the United states. I the course of their Long Chat they fell to discussing the men they had known in Cairo in 1883 and 1884, officer must of them who had been with Kitchener. One name recalled another Aud probably three out of four of the old comrades had passed from Hie scene in the intervening years Many of them in action. When Kitchener wept a suddenly a a avs sex attache a a i looked up and to my astonishment saw big tears rolling Down the bronzed Cheeks of Hie Field marshal i could not help exclaiming Oil the Spur of the moment a How i wish people could see you As you Are just now it would set at rest All those stupid stories of you being a Man utterly devoid of a ooh i have a heart All right a lie replied Only i do not think it necessary to carry it on my sleeve a somewhat similar testimony is borne by Richard Barry in the new York times. He saw Kitchener at Simla at the time of the visit of the Prince of Wales now King George. . Barry was then representing Collie re a Magazine and he admits he had slight Hopes of talking with Kitchener for his antipathy to any kind of publicity that he could avoid was traditional. . Barry was astonished by the ease with which he arranged for an interview and at the kindliness which Kitchener displayed. No Mere machine at the close of the interview which lasted for three hours he observed a general you have quite belied your a instantly Kitchener stiffened and Drew Back. How a that a lie scowled. A some people say that you re a hard Man to talk with Itiat you re a Man of Iron of no words but i have to thank you for a most illuminating a who says that a he asked bluntly. Plainly annoyed. A correspondents sometimes officers a killed on tile evening of the Victory at o my urinal said that Kitchener made no attempt to conceal the tears that welled from the eyes while the belated funeral ceremony of his old Friend and fellow officer in the Royal engineers was in Prit Gress. It is the opinion of sex attache that Kitchener a reputation for coldness Aud hard i motorcycles had hazardous encounters with Lions and other dangerous beasts alarmed at the invasion of their fastnesses. Even the giraffes proved hostile to the British Advance for they scratches their Long necks against the British held Telephone wires until the wires 4>roke under the Strain. The Normal boy moves to use tools Aud there is no period in his life during which he can readily be taught to develop his constructive faculties a As while Iii his teens. It might also.

Etemus Over Roosevelt had elected Taft he set out be said that there is no other line of throw Quot Masefield said it Roosevelt to beat Taft. To succeeded. He split Ness came from his innate shyness. I the enemy made a Strong stand at he loved his work he Dick Dot love talking about it with casual acquaintances. He avoided banquets and receptions a lieu it was at ail possible. On his return from Japan in 1910 he did not pass through Canada As canadians had strongly desired but through the United stages. He went there because he realized that he would have been feted and entertained in this country. A shy Man in the course of his journey through the United states he Only posed once for a photographer and that was with Gen i Scott. His shyness sometimes led him to make astonishingly Blunt speeches us is often the ease with diffident people. Many americans who saw Kitchener when he attended a professional baseball game with Geo. T. Wilson president of the pilgrims club in new York were astonished at the nervousness and shyness that he displayed when lie was invited As the most distinguished person in the grounds to toss out Hie first Ball. It is pleasant that we should at last be permitted to obtain a glimpse of the real Man who was masked As Sirdar and War lord. He was impatient with Many people but lie had a deep and abiding affection for his old soldiers and for his fellow officers. He wan never Busy pre occupied that he would nonstop to shake hands with a Veteran who w Ore a medal a ribbon that showed that he had been in Egypt and Many of them will treasure such an incident As the most precious memory in their lives. Moshi about Twenty Miles from the British Border and Well fortified was their position that the British avoided a frontal attack Aud sought to take it by ail enveloping move. They were nut Quick enough to surround Hie place before the enemy had decamped however and the Only spoil taken was one of the four Inch guns of Hie Koenigsberg which was not suited for operations Iii the Field. A British Force operating from Northwest of Kilimanjaro made its Way South to the Road connecting Moshi and Arusha seventy Miles from tile Briti Sli Border. The germans retreated South from mos Iii which is surrounded by rubber Aud Coffee plantations. An attempt was made by Gen. Van Deventer and his Force of burghers to envelop the left Wing of the germans but again the nature of the country interfered with tile Briti Sli plans for he was held up by a River infested with crocodiles.

Taking it from one end of life to the other than the education of the hand and Eye leading to scientific mechanical skill. The next few weeks will see the initiation in Manitoba of a movement to extend to a Large number of provincial centres the blessings of manual training which has become popular in advanced City schools. Through the boys and girl hubs the Extension service of Manitoba agr cult Mal College has joined hands Iii Many practical issues with Over to Udo boys and girls of this province and to the boys who Are Iii these clubs the agricultural woodworking Short course will make a mighty Appeal. The courses which will be presented in about Twenty five places in Manitoba this year will average from a week to ten Days in duration and the dates to be selected will be during the summer holidays. Iii announcing the plan it was stipulated that in order that any Point might be favored with a course it must enrol at least fifteen Twenty boys who Are Over twelve years of age. From fifteen to thirty boys can be Laught woodworking by a Good manual instructor and if More than thirty enrol at any place an additional instructor will be needed there. Much of the work can be done out of doors As Well As indoors but it is part o Folie plan that in each Case Access will be had to some suitable building room that work May proceed through rain it a a As Well As Fine weather. The arrangement at Souris presents a Fine example of How the Short course May be made a red letter week in the boys lives. Here the citizens Are providing a big tent and the boys will Camp for ten Days cooking their own meals working with their own hands and enjoying a few Fine sport features sandwiched in Between. The instructors who will assume charge of these Twenty five Short courses Are technical teachers either in the agricultural College the manual training departments of the Winnipeg Public schools. In each Case they will seek to training that it will Best meet the Rural situation. The tilings made will be is it. Roosevelt has missed the re the Republican party and the result publican nomination for the Brest was the election of Wilson Dency of the United states but he the modern Warwick remains the key to urn political Situ i the score stands an assassination. Of he runs on the progressive ticket Hughes will be. As the Chicago phrase has it. A running for the colonel is the Samson of the situation. He can destroy the whole elected Roosevelt. Roosevelt elected Taft Roosevelt split with Taft and elected Wilson and now it lies with Roosevelt to elect the next president Roosevelt has lost the Republican edifice of Republican Hopes and per nomination but he is As influential a ish among the falling fragments. His figure today As he was before the position was never stronger than it is today. The United states looks to him though the Republican. Progressive and the democratic conventions Are Over. Roosevelt however remains the Central Ngure the stage it still depends upon him who is to be the next president of the United states. President and pres Dent maker consider Roosevelt. There has been nobody like him in the history of the United states. An Assassin made him president in the first place after certain Niew York politicians had sidetracked him into the vice presidency a veritable grave of political ambitions. He made Good after Mckinley. He had no trouble in securing the next nomination in his party. He resigned. Then lie announced that his interest in governing the country had waned. He said that lie was not concerned in Legal constitutional problems but in moral problems. He thrust upon a docile though dubious convention William Howard Taft. He signed the Taft note. He gave a covenant mortgage. Taft was elect cd. Two three years afterwards something happened. Neither party balloting began it is his play. He has announced thai he will not accept the nomination of the progressives for the time being. Should his refusal be final and should he turn in behind Hughes and Fairbanks a a wonderful pair of vice presidents a it is probable that Wilson will be Defeated. Itiat is assuming that Roosevelt still owns the Bull Moose party and signs that the Bull Moose party Hail some slight ambition to own itself were not wanting in Chicago on saturday. Among the lieutenants there was a feeling that Roosevelt had forsworn allegiance that he was blinking of the republicans instead of the progressives. Governor Johnson referred to the Point in a voice that was shaken by emotion. Two men to fight for undoubtedly the progressives were surprised by the nomination of Hughes they were astonished by the Roosevelt announcement that lie would not now accept the Bull Moose nomination. Nevertheless they Are Likely to do what the colonel wants. They will not turn out to fight for Hughes As they would fight for Timeir Hughes that Way there arc Only americans in the Public Eye Tod a whom men would fight for they would tight for their Brothers one of them is Roosevelt the other is Bry. An these two Are personalities that have what the novelists Call a magnetism Hughes has none of it Wilton has none. Between the two far As one might judge by their Public utter auces there is nothing to choose. Eracli recites a piece that might have been taken from Tho third Reader each is obviously trying to please the greatest possible number of readers with the greatest possible number of words. In Roosevelt hands the colonel remains the key to Tho situation. For a week past the utmost pressure has been applied to him with a View of defeating Wilson lie has publicly and frequently criticized Wilson. He has not criticized Hughes it has been put to hint this Way will you run As a progressive and thus elect Wilson again will you Campaign for Hughes and elect the re publican party the colonel is think ing it Over and it seems that he is in favor of electing Hughes. But Fairbanks must have been a bitter Pill for him to Swallow. To could have named his own vice president yet he remained silent. The spectacle of Roosevelt making a speech in favor of Fairbanks can be imagined by those who eau imagine him waxing eloquent in behalf of Henry Ford. Tile Ball is in his hands As it was before the convention began. Roosevelt can say who will be the next president of the United states and per haps lie eau say what should be and shall be the policy of the next Prest Dent with regard to the world con own Leader.

The reduction in the acreage sown in Hie Western provinces is not a matter of regret inasmuch As the increase of 1915 was unusually Large owing to the special Effort to increase production for that season and to the greater preparation in the Way of summer fallowing and cultivation made possible by Hie Light crop of 1914.

The pulpwood paper acid lumbering industries Are steadily increasing their output owing to tile increased demand from the United states where the shortage of paper is particularly pronounced because of labor troubles Iii Norway and the difficulty of obtaining tonnage. The imports from Norway Are a considerable Factor in the United states Market and will be further curtailed though consumption is increasing. On the Paciuc coast the lumbering business is Active arid prices Are firmer. Rates for Ocean shipments have declined and shippers Are holding off for better terms. In Nova Scotia tile lumber output it is estimated will be an average one and As purchasers Are to Supply tonnage owing to the unfavourable weather in Ontario for seeding peas and planting out tomatoes the canners anticipate a shortage of these vegetables Aud prices have advanced very sharply. The prospects for a heavy yield of fruits of All kinds not Only in Ontario but elsewhere Are most promising. For the Large operations stocks will be disposed of by the end of the season. Ruling prices will return fair profits. In new Brunswick the lumber Cut will be sixty five per cent of the average. The British Columbia legislature has authorized the government to Advance fifty five per cent of the Cost constructing wooden vessels in addition to granting a Bonus of 15.00 per ton upon certain conditions.
