The reasonable people of Canada aro beginning to realize that somo system which will conserve the needed laljor at Iiome, U necessary In the future recruiting campalgna. Production of fuel and food products Is just as much Canada's duty in this war as turnlsliing men for the trenches. That this is recognized In England is evidenced by a letter recelvinl recently from the old country by ;�. local man who was unable to pass tin.' . recruiting examinations and regretted , the fact. The old country man told I him that Canadians were needed Just as much at home to help feed the Empire, as they were overseas In tlie trenches.

Can you stand Idly by with no feeling that a great responsibility rests, upon youT I feel that the young men of my diocese should stand up and say I will not stand Idly by and see such dastardly deeds and not do my part to revenge. "If any young fellow In any of the nine counties In my diecese cames to me after the war Is over to seek counsel or advice or a>-slstanoe, my first question will be 'Where were you?' and If he cannot explain himself I advise him not to come to me for the Interview will be an unpleasant one for him and a hot one for me. "The man who Is deaf to the call of honor has no consclenea, and I will not appeal to a thing which doee not exist." WINNIPEG MAN KILLED Winnipeg, April 10.-Cable advices received In Winnipeg announce the death of Lieut. R. E. N. Jones, Winnipeg Grenadiers, who left Wnnlpeg with -the 27th battalion, and was kUl-ed in action on April 6th last. He waa manager of the Alexander Ave., Winnipeg, branch of the Bank of Commerce. He was a former resident of Calgary. C. N, R. AFTER MORE FAVORS AT OTTAWA The blllanddan duo Is about to tap Ottawa for another raise. Thinking they have the Ottawa bunch where they want them, the C. N. R. is out for another slice of easy money. It �won't be a straight handout this time hut will be in the nature of a guarantee of bonds at a higher rate. There Is no doubt the C. N. R. Is Jn bad shape, and under the circumstances the best thing the govem-luent can do would be to take over the system and.operate it as a gt'V-ernment road. The government has done good work In operating the government railroads In the past year, and there seems to be little reason why they couldn't operate the CJi.R. too and save tite blllanddan duo their annual trip to Ottawa. CANADA MUST CONSERVE NECESSARY LABOR The Lethbrldge Board- of Trade proved the conrago of Its convictions In another vital problem last week, when it undertook to memorialize the government on the tfuestion of conserving farming and mining labor while recruiting was In progress. This is a delicate matter, but no erganlzatlon is In a better position to voice what are now believed to be tba .seAtlmsnts of many sobermlnded Ca- nadlnns, than is the L�thbrldge board, for Lietbbrldgo, since the war com-ixnenced has established a recruiting record for Canada. No less than 1721 joen have been recruited here for Tarlous units, and 65 per eent. of these rare from the city itself.

Thirty days' Imprisonment was given Marvin Oouard In Vancouver for advising men approached by recruiting sergeants, not to enlist. More than $10,000,000 has been subscribed to the Canadian patriotic fund which will last Into next year; the requisition for March was $600,000. Marconi has invented a special apparatus, based on a new principle, which is destined to make a seuaa-tlonal change In the operation of aeroplanes and dirigibles. The names of all eligible young men In Woodstock, Ont., have been tabulated by the recruiting league there, and sergeants of the l6Sth battalion win immediately make a canvass in the stores and offices. Struck on the head and legs by flying rocks from a blast at Cross L,ake bridge, James Wilkes of Arden. Ont.. met his death. One piece of rock took his leg away with it, and the unfortunate man quickly bled to death. Stephen Liynch, a laborer of Belleville, was found guilty by Police Magistrate Masson of selling liquor to a soldier and was fined $300 and costs or three months In Jail. Not being able to pay the fine he went to Jail. After an illness extending over several months, Theodore B. Janiss, one of the best known hotelmen in Windsor, and for the past 22 years proprietor of the Wellington Hotel, died at the age of 46 years. Oil and natural gas exist in large quantities In the vicinity of Princeton, North Oxford, Ont, according to ESmest R. Cross, prominent Alberta oil man and native of Princeton. Mr. Cross Is endeavoring to interest capital-In the development of the Held. The Mutual Elevator Co., Limited, with a capital stock of half a million dollars, and head office In Winnipeg, has been Incorporated. F. H. Bole and D. H. Bole of Port William; J. T. Haig, A. A.

The seriousness of the milk shortage In Chicago as a result of the larger distributors* refusal to grant dairy farmers of northern Illinois an Increase of 22% cents a hundred pounds revealed when the distributors began taking a census of families having babies or invalids with a view to supplying them first. The ChevalIer*B Cross of the French Legion of Honor bestowed on the late Captain George T. Richardson, has arrived In Kingston, Ont The cross Is a most beautiful piece of work. Beside the cross and a picture of the late Captain, a card bearing the following words Is shown: "Presented to the late Capt. George T. Richardson by the French Republic, 1916, for his country's sake, not for his own." One hundred thousand members of the Daughters of the American Revolution put on sale throughout the United States on April 8th ten million little Belgian flags in an effort to raise a fund of $1,000,000 for the benefit of destitute women and children In Belgium and northern France. The day was selected because it Is the 4l8t birthdaj- anniversary of King Albert of Belgium. A remarkable story of how a German named Lelbold enlisted under the name of Baker, served for 19 years In the British army, rose to the rank of squadron sergeant-major In the Eleventh Hussars, and died the death of a hero In France while fighting against the country of liis birth, is hidden behind the granting ot a certificate of naturalization to his widow, Mrs. John Mowat Breadalbane Baker, of Gcdalming, Surrey. Says b'sss of hot water with phosphate before breakfast washes out poisons To see the tinge of healthy bloom In your face, to see your skin get clearer and clearer, to wake up without ft headache, backache, coated tongue or a nasty breath. In fact to feel your best day In and day ont. Just try inslde-bathlng eveiy morning for one week. Before breakfast eacu day, drink a glass of real hot water -with a tea-spoonful ot limestone phosphate in It as a harmless means of washing from the stomach, liver, kidneys and bo^v-els the previous day's Indigestible waste, sour bi^e and toxins; thus cleansing, sweetening and purifying the entire alimentary canal before putting more food Into the stomach. The action of hot water and limestone phosphate on on empty stomach Is wonderfully invigorating. It cleans out all the sour fermentations, gases and acidity and gives one a splendid appetite for breakfast. A quarter pound of limestone phosphate will cost very little at the dnig store but It Is sufficient to demonstrate that Just as soap and hot water cleanses, sweetens and freshens the skin, so hot -water and limestone phosphate act on the blood and Internal organs. Those who are subject to constipation, bilious attacks, acid stomach, rheumatic twinges, also those whose skin Is sallow and complexion pallid, are assured that one week of Inside-bathing will have them both looking and feeling better In every way. Adv. R W. MUIR EDWARDS, Professor of Civil and Municipal Engineering Back in London from New York city. Dr. W. J. Stevenson says that German agents are employing return ed American soldiers who fought with the Canadians to denounce the BH tlsh generally at meetings in the American metropolis. � Dr. Stevenson declared that It Is an everyday occur renoe to hear returned American soldiers In the pay of German agents, charging ill-treatment at�the hands of British and Canadian officers, at open-air meetings in New York. Harold Richard Clements, 19 years old, who has been working In a department store In Seattle, at a small salary, has been notified by Arthur Payne, an attorney at Louisville, Ky., that he has Inherited the $3,000,000 estate of his grandmother, Mrs. Mary Clements, who died there recently. Young Clements is the son.of Harry Curtis Clements, formerly president ct the Denver Traction company, who dlel nine years ago, When ft>r. Clements died he left the bulk of his estate to his mother, only a small al-,! lowance going to his �on, young Cle-'riientB said. Energy Is defined as the capacity to do work. The word "power** Is used In much the same sense except that In this case we generally refer more to the ability to do useful -work. As will be seen later there Is a big margin between the amount of energy in a source and the quantity ot useful work which may be obtained therefrom. Work is defined as the action ot force through distance. The unit of force is the attraction of gravity on a one pound mass. It is thus the force which must be exerted to prevent a mass of one pound from falling toward the earth. The unit of distance used In British countries is the foot and thus one unit ot work is done when a force moves through a distance such that the product ot their number ot units is one. Thus a one pound force through a one foot distance, a ten pound force through a one-tenth foot distance and a one-fitth ot a pound force through a five-toot distance, all do one "foot pound" of work. We are not concerned, however, with the amount of work a man, a horse or a machine can do. What we require to know is how much work each can do in a given time, a second a minute or an hour, as the case may be. Thus we have the next unit In considering power, i.e., a unit of rate ot doing work.  As was very natural this unit was arrived at by setting source of energy, with which ail were familiar, to work and observing how much such a power could do in a given time. At the time this investigation was carried out and the unit decided upon, the horse was the usual motive power. From the tests carried out it was decided that the power of a horse to do work continuously during the usual working hours, was at the rate of 550 foot-pounds per second. On the busts, pointed nut in the article on roads, that a horse can exert a pull equal to one-tenth Of bis weight travelling two and a half miles per hour and can work at this rate for the usual working hours and keep in condition, It would seemthat horses of about 1500 pounds In weight were UHed In the test. Wo might classify three sources of power, i.e., animal life, cUetnleal reaction, and movement ot bodies possessing mass. An example ot the first Is the horse, ot the second the burning of coal, and ot the third, water power. To utilize the energy of any ot these it Is necessary to use a machine. The proportion which the work actually performed Is to the energy ot the source used Is a measure of the efficiency of transformation. It might be Just noted here that other sources of power such as radio active bodies are not coniilderod. Considering the second Spurqe of power as listed above, tfo' most cpm-mon form consists In tuo xemctlons which take place when we burn a fuel and thus generate heat. Heat and electricity aro not. In the sense we are here using the-term,, sources ot power but are puther forms'. In which the transformed inergy expressed.Itself and thus represoait laterwe4' late steps In the transformation of energy from the sources considered Into ttsotul work. But the Intensity ot the chomtcnl power Is measured In units ot heat generated and thus it Is nodessary to next define and discuss j this unit and its relation to the other iunit ot energy, unmely, a toot-pound. The usual function of heat Is to raise tlie temperature of a mass .and I thus the unit of heat Is defined as the I quantity required to raise one pound !ot water one degree In temperature, ;Thus a British Thermal Unit (B. T. U.) Is the heat required to raise one pound of water from 62'F. to GS-F. and with an accuracy quite sulflclont for the subject. It may be said that the one degree rise may take place I anywhere on the temperature scale. , This unit of heat is another way of measuring energy and It .Is necesaary to establish the relationship between the two units before we can compare this source of power with other sour-! ces. Experiment at present places the value of B.T.U. In foot-pounds at such A figure that the work done by a horse-power working for an hour Is equivalent to the energy represented by 2545 B.T.U. Coal varies materially In Its composition and In its heating value per pound. Roughly speaking It might be said that a pound of coal contains from 8,000 to 14,000 B.T.U. and a value of 9,000 B.T.U. might be used as applying to the typo of soft coal found In the province of Alberto. Remembering that 2545 B.T.U. represents work equal to a horse-power hour. It will be evident that there Is an Immense amount of energy present in n ton ot coal. The great difficulty Is to turn it Into useful work. Just to emphasize this In another way. It may be stated that a ton ot coal, running 9,000 B.T.U. to the pound has an energy value ot $53.00, If power be rated at one cent per kilowatt hour. The selling value ot the coal at the power house Is possibly only $2.00 per ton. The method ot utilizing the energy in coal by means of steam is to bu.-'i the coal and use the heat generated to change the physical characteristic ot -water from a liquid to a gaseous form and then to use the steam so obtained in some form of steam engine, either n reciprocating type which does or does not condense the exhaust steam, or a steam turbine. There are certain losses occurring which can be lessened or stopped by careful design both In the steam raising plant and the steam using machine, but there are others of a very considerable nature which are inherent in this method ot getting power and which neither design nor supervision can I emody. In general, due to losses In the heat carried off by the products of combustion, radiation, and other causes. It may be said that from 40 to 65 per cent ot the heat value In the fuel is transmitted to the steam. Of the heat so transmitted a large portion is used in bringing about the physical change by which water is turned into steam. If this change takes place at atmospheric pressure, it requires 970.4 B.T.U. to change a pound of water at 212''F. into steam at 212''F. In a non-condensing engine possibly 5 per cent and in a condensing type 20 per cent of this heat value may be recovered, but due to the necessity ot changing the physical form of the feed water before It can be iLsed in the machine, there la a large loss Inherent In the method which no designing -will remedy. There are other minor losses, the total result being that considering efllclency ot trans formation from coal-pUe to point of power delivery a steam plant may de liver 14 per cent of tlie available energy, will deUver 10 per cent and In many cases Is only delivering 5 per cent.
