After spending a week on Lodge-polo Creek, the party will go to the Flathead district to continue its explorations and surveys.

Mrs. Lloyd Georgo gave away some of tho secrets of Downing St. when, presiding at a recent lecture on domestic labor-saving at the Economy Exhibition, she said: "When we-went to 11 Downing St. (the official residence of tho Chancellor of the Exchequr), nine yoars ago we found a big scullery there with not a window, not a gleam of light, nor ventilation of any sort or kind "It took mo some little time beforo I could persuade the Board of Works to build me a nice little scullery. I did not rest till I got it. Now there is a nice little complete scullery with a glass roof and a window which opens out into the garden. "Perhaps you would not bolieve me if I told you that when Mr. Asqulth came to 10 Downing street nine years ago there was not a single bathroom iiv tho place. I think it has improved a little since we have been there." GOVT. ELEVATORS ON EAST COAST Ottawa, Aug. C.-A sparsely attended house today undertook consideration of a miscellany of-business. On a motion to go into supply Sir Wilfrid Laurier undertook by means of .certain correspondence discovered on )the governmental files of the. Now Brunswick government when the late government left office some months ago, to repudiate certain charges against one of his former ministers, Hon. Dr. Pugsley, contained in the Landry commission report of; 1909. Tho report referred to matters when Dr. Pugsley was in the New Brunswick government. Miscellaneous estimates piloted through tho houso by various ministers occupied the greater part of the attention of the house toward the close. Hon. George P. Graham urged In connection with harbor development that tho government should establish an elevator system at seaboard and secure tonnage to carry Canadian products overseas. Mr. Rogers stated that the government was giving considerable attention to the question of tonnage. Ho favored the idea of government elevators at Halifax and St. John. The Canadian Northern railway resolution comes up tomorrow. acriptlon. Men fit only for home military service probably will be organized for war but it is expoctd that at present women will not be. But if the war long continues female labor is likely to be similarly utilized. Wellington, New Zealand, Aug. 7.- The New Zealand police hereafter will tnforee that section of the New Zealand military serlvec law which aims at tho enrolment of every man of military age in the Dominion in the expeditionary force reserve. Policemen may accost citizons and make enquiries accordingly. Eligible men not Enrolled will be liable to a fine of $250 or three months' imprisonment. It Is hoped by this step not only to ensure that the name of every fit man Is on the roll but to detect men who have failed to comply with tho military ballot (drafting by means of numbered marbles and card Indexes). That Is, every man who is not in military uniform will have to have either an enrolment certificate or a "leave pass" showing that he has been medically rejected. It Is expected that the powers thus given the police will lead to many Incidents. Another change under the military service act which took effect this month is relative to the claslflcatlon of the men of the second reserve division-the married men. Originally this division was to have been classified according to the men's dependents, but lately the government decided that the basis shall be children only. Thus married men without chil- Idren will be called up first, those with one child next and so on. Married men ' without children are estimated to number about 15,000. The first of the married men will be drafted in September or October. The National Efficiency Board created hy the New Zealand government tins decided that every man and woman In the Dominion must engage in war work It necessity arises. It also sent a circular to school boards suggesting that the midwinter holidays which July be curtailed and the time saved than be added to the miA summer Christians holidays.

San Francisco, Aug. 6.-Two ships, supposedly operating from a baso somewhere in the butch East Indies, have supplied the German armies in German East Africa with munitions, according to Carl Raymond Davis, manager of a gold mine in Johannesburg, South Africa, who was here today. One of the vessels returned to Java In a shell-ridden condition. A sprinkling of British white troops, strengthening forces from India and 30,000 negro Askarls, are conducting the campaign against the Germans in their East African campaign, said Davis. The force is commanded by the Boer general, Van Oe Venter. Fever has taken a great toll among the white troops operating in the region and 50 per cent, of them were compelled to withdraw to coast cities, according to Davis. tit* �toady deplttiofc of labor 1>y cea IJ E N'S SLIP P E R S Patent Leathers, also Gunmctal Slippers; sizes !1 to 1. tf>�j o y| Wednesday Morning Special....
