Manaeine Director Business M�uager Your King and Country n��d you right nowl ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The sudden activity of the Germaiu along tbe British front in Flanders haa Jed to the belief that they may be planning fully as great an effort Bgalnst the British as they have attempted against the BYench at Verdun. Thus far the British have suc-Besstully repulsed any attacks mads. Along the entire French front there has been much activity, with intoj^ tnlttont artlUory fir* and trench fighting. The sinking of the British warship tlussell, of 14,000 tons, the Arethusa da'as, by a mine, was msde known J'eaterday. A German submarine has been sunk off the east coast of �iig-iand. The Dutch people are gradually eomlng to a stage of indignation over Germany's submarine warfare where Bome vigorous action against the Huns vrlll be demanded, and probably taken. X)ntch shipping has lost heavily by this warfare. r)ICKED UP IN ASSING for the bust man V/HY WERE CANADIANS IGNORED IN CONTRACTS Evidence has already been additesd by the Dominion government counsel bt the enquiry Into the Kyte charges Bt Ottawa, to show that contracts tvere awarded and big ad\-ances lo money' made to mushroom American concerns for the manufacture of fuses, v.-hen a Canadian firm, with a plant all ready, was ignored on the ground that its first assurances were not Biitisfactory. This at least shows that something was wrong somewhere in the shell commission. Why the Russell firm, which gave as reasonable a guarantee as anyone could desire, or why an American firm backed by British capital, who also made an offer at a cheaper rata than the firm which got the contract, should be Ignored, will require some explaining. MONEY IN GROWING ALFALFA SEED Experiences of such men as Chas. Kane and Prof. Tanner have shown uh that Southern Alberta soil and climate will raise an Al brand of alfalfa seed. The cost of producing alfalfa seed In commercial quantities Is not great and the returns are large. There Is, too, a big demand for the seed. Eastern Canada will put In a standing order lor thousands of pounds. Under these clrcumstahces we hope the farmers of Southern Alberta will make an effort to develop the alfalfa �eed industry. On his last visit to this seotion SnpL Fixter, ot the Dominion lllnstration farm plots, made n special point of urging the farmers here to experiment along these lines. Iklost of our alfalfa seed snpply In Canada now comes from IT. S. It is an Industry specially adapted to Southern Albertji. Our farmers might just as well keep this money at home. lluncan MacVlcar, Union Bank man- j ager at Weyburn, suicided by shtioting. j Dr. Horatio C.

The 300th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare is being celebrated all this week in public parks, playgrounds, recreation parks, churches and educational Institutions in Xew York.

Ottawa, April 29-Major-Oeneral Sir Sam Hughes is in the government, hut not of It. That Is to say the mllltia portfolio has been taken away from him and the chances are a hundred to one against his ever getting It back ajialn. Wion Sam took on the Job of War Lord some live years ago candidates were plenty, and the war hasn't had the effect ot making them scarcer. The spending la very good Just now. Everything has been done to let Sir Sam down easy and not to put anybody else's nose out of joint. What I mean to say Is that Sam found Hon, A. E. Kemp on tlir job and making a very good fist ot It at that, took over the department from his hands for a period ot fortyolght hours, resigned according to schedule and thanked his predecessor gracefully In public. Whereupon Premier Borden, following Premier Asquith and British precedent, took over the war ofllce and said ho would do his beat with the hot potato. The militia department took a sort of three cornered route to get to Pre:nler Borden, but It had to be done that way so as not to offend Acting -Minister Kemp or invito R. B. Bennett to come poking rtround. Rumor has it that in the cabinet re-or-ganlzatlon which will follow Sir Sam's withdrawal, R. B. Bennett and Nickel ot Kingston are to be asked in. but the time is not ripe yeL Sir Sam has to be vlndlcitod before anything Is done. He will probably bo allowed to retreat with the honors of war. All his enemies, most of the candidates for his job, and not a (ew ot his friends, agree that there Is a glorious future ahead of him some threo thousand miles away where It will bo easier to carry a future as i great as Sam's without getting black In the face. Nothing will be too good for Sir Sam after the royal commission has brought in a verdict ot not proven. Peerages and liold marshal-ships are the slightest blessings that should happen to him. Meainvhll? the tact that Sir Sam Is out ot the mllltla dopanment Is not to bo tjiken as evidonco. It is merely a sign that publio opinion Is suspended while Sam devotes his time to establishing before the royal commission his innocence ot certain charges which George Kyto did not raaka, but which Premier Borden, his colleagues In the cabinet, and the Conservative press generally did make hy Implication-namely tlmt Sir Sam had his share ot the graft The>' went to it so heartily tliat it almost looked as it they had the cap waiting to fit It on Sir Sam. George Kytp's charges were to the effect that Sir Sam's name on documents ratifying fuse contracts with mushroom American companies after substantial conii'antes, both Canadian and American, had offered to make the same kind of fuses from scvonty-flvo cents to a dollar less per fuse and had guaranteed delivery, had a colorable look, especially In view of tlie fact that the two mushroom companioB |ivere months behind in their deliveries. Still another charge was tlmt thcso favored companies got cash advances amounting to fifteen per cent, of their contracts, whereas reputable Canadian companies could not even get a chance to go ahead without a bonus. Still another charge was that Sir Sam's soul-mate, Col. Jolin Wesley Allison, was the friend of frenxied financiers in tho United States, who divided mlllious in commissions before the contracts got fairly started. Mr, Kyte said nothing about dividing profits before they were earned, so when Sir Sam denied that charge ho MINE LABOR AND BUMMER COAL STORAGE We hope the press ot Western Ca-Jiada win not forgot the experiences of last winter and allow the agitation for summer storage of coal to lapse Into oblivion until another winter finds a fuel shortage confronting the prairie provinces. The summer is tho proper time to provide against a recurrence ot last winter's situation, and coal, dealers and farmers on the pralriei^ should have their minds jogged occa-Blonally to store coal at the proper time. One special reason tor keeping tho matter before public attention la that no one knows what the labor situation In the mining camps may be next win-tor. If a repetition ot last winter's shortage were to develop, there la little doubt the mines would not be able to procure the labor to meet the demands. At the same time it may he pointed out that the mines as at present developed are able to lurn out Just four times the amount of coal consumed annually on the prairies. It will therefore be evident that if the dealers and consumers will do their phare toward storing coal in the summer and tall whilo tho demand la not great, they will be putting tho mine operators in a position to use their available supply of skilled mine h'bor Bt a time ot year when the domaud is xiBually BEall, and thus avoid a rush ta wlBtur which would overwhelm From office boy to tho job ot ])re3i-dent ot a New York and Chicago meat pac'iclng corporation, at a salary ot $250,000 annually, are the contrasting features in tho successful business career of Thomas E, Wilson, who is believed to be the highest paid employe in the world Identified with the active management ot a purely private commercial organization. Mr. Wilson has just been made active head ot Sulzberger & Sons, meat packers. He was tdrmerly president of Morris & Co., ot Chicago, and is reported to be worth several million dollars. 2 for 23c.

All thOHo (jueor people seemed to horn In when thoy heard there was augnr around. Ab a maltoi' of fact unythlnR tho Kyto charges can show ufcalnst Sir Sam thoy can show equally ngnlnsl. tho old shell commltteo and UgainHt the government. Although tho blame can bo divided, lllio ancient Unul, into three parts, It was tho government that shouldered tho whole of it on Sir Sum by granting a royal commls. slon on the ground Hint It was his honor that was slanted at. Ot course Sam niuy object to getting It nil and this is probably the reason why BUggeationH are already afloat that tho Meredith.DulT commission bo pruned to tho snmo size as the Davidson commission. That Is to say It will not bo a caso ot defence on the part of tho Kovornment counsel nnd attack on tho part of the Liberal counsel but both these gentlemen will bo there to "assist" the commission. Evidence will be put into tliolr hands j and the commission may nak qucKtions about it it It likes. In other words tho Inquiry will not lake the form of a law suit with oxiu'esslons and Kometlnios angry. It will sound more like "In The Gloaming" with the soft pedal down. Sir Sam hns come back I to face the music, but It won't be ! loud music that he faces. Sir Saul's speech In the house wiis received with mixed toolings. lils best friends said he might have dono ! a great deal better ai\d his worst enemies called It u melancholy spec- i tade. I Instead ot making a crisp ton niln- \ uto statement and sUttng down or tak- j ing the war into Africa and drubbing ; Kyte nnd Carvell for a hot half hour. ' the Major General iboso to make a long address. In which he gave live minutes to the Ivyto cliargos, anollier five to (Colonel J. \Vesley Allison anil an hour nnd a halt to statistics in ; which ho repeated those labors of ! Hercules, performed by him in orgnn-izlng the shell committee and breathing courage into Its members. This was old stuff. The house had heard It before and yawned frankly. Fully I three-quarters of the members road j their newspapers. The lion. Thomas I Crothcrs, being a bit of a critic, tell \ asleep from time to time. The cabinet ' looked thoughtful-It had the appear- | nncc of waiting to be convinced, willing to cheer If there was anything to cheer for, but resigned to disappoint-I nient. Here was a minister by way of being impeached or something like that. Where was his fiery Indignation? Was he Bulfering from clergyman's tliront'? Had his four lawyers talked all the bounce out of him'/ 'I'luo he was denying everything, but why was he lobbing them over in;:te;>d of hurling thom as charges ought to lie hurled? What this crisis needed was "more pop," and Sam wasn't there with liio hot stuff. In short, Sam committed the unpardonable crime-he bored tlie house stiff. As a matter ot tact the Major-Geii-eral is not himseU'. Ho appe;irs lo be on the verge of a nervous breakdown. He did not create that "happy atmos-1 pliere" which ho used ir. replying to ' the (jarvell charges i.. couple ot months ago. Whetlier he felt lliat liis ai'.dionce wai cold-heaven knows it was big enough, tho galleries were crowded-or whether he felt that ho was surrounded by members of his own party who had 'their thumbs turned down, tho fact remains that tlie Major-General was in poor form, lie tried all his old tricks but witli only half a heart. As a result he put nothing over. As tho actors say, he couldn't get it across. Even his bluster, which is Sam's long suit, seemed to fall with a dull, sickening thud, lie interrupted himself at tho proper places for uproarious aiiphuiso, but the applause failed to conned. He took a sly llilig at the groat and good Mr. I'lavelle, when he mentioned sausages, nnd at Sir Thomas White, who is credited with putting the great and good .Mr. Flavello where ho is. Nothing doing. The house never turned a hair. It was "show mo" and naturally it got on Sam's nerves. He tried the pump several limes, but his pathos broke off near the handle and Ik; raised no water. He aimed to overcome his audience with emotion, but overcame only himself. Ever and anon he waved tho old Mag-but lie waved It feebly. Tho old flag, as George M. Cohan says, has saved many a bum show. Sam believes lu giving It a chance. in short, it was Sam's off day. Ho will probably do better before the commission. H. F. O.

BANISH BILE! .\ bilious condition of the system is the result of inaction of the liver, often causing severe headache through the eyes and temples, culminating sometimes in nausea and vomiting, which is frequently followed by a bilious diarrhta. Abbey's EfTervescent Salt, when taken as directed, stimulates the peptic glands of the stomach and increases the contraction of its muscles from above downward. This action is communicated to the intestines and increases the flow of the intestinal juice, tluis stinuilating the ducts ofthc liver to flour out the bile, when it can be carried downward by the laxative action of the Salt, instead of remaining to clot; up the liver and How biick into the sloiuach. Tluis, if a person who is subject to Biliousness and Bilious Headache will use Abbey's Eliervcscent Salt, the natural action of the Stomach, liver and iutesiiiic will be kept up and no bile can accumulate in tlie system.

WAR TEACHING IN PRUSSIAN SCHOOLS Speaking In the Pnisslan diet, tho SoalallBt deputy, llerr Hoffman, protostod against tho way In which "haired" is dellborately taught In Prussian schools. Ho road a number ot "poems" whldi Prussian children are taught to recite. The girls In a Berlin obntinuation school sing to a well-known Christmas tuno a song beginning: "Oh England, oh Kngland, how great are thy lies. But however great thy crimes, tliou suc-eeedoat in cheating the gallows." In a Berlin oloraentiiry bcIiooI the children of the highest classos sang In chorus at an ontortalnmont given to thoir parents; "I5very shot a Hus-Hian, every blow.a Frenchman, every kick a Briton, and tho Serbs must die." From Hanover comes a song for school children, the chief lesson of whinh Is that no pardon should bo given to Gormnuy's enemies. H>irr |l!c*Tmari quoted the following; "Over thoro in the cowardly trenches lies tho enemy. Wo attack him, and only a dog will say that imrdoii shall bo given today. Strike dead ovory-thlng which prays for mercy. Shoot everything down llko dogs. 'Aloro enomloB, more enemies,' bo our prayer In this hour of revenge."
