AMERICAN RELIEF Washington, Feb. 3.-An entire diplomatic structure to protect probably 2,000,000 prisoners In the midst of their enemies, to care for a whole conquered nation in Belgium, to represent the Interests of the four sovereign states in Germany and German interests in nine enemy countries crumbled today before German necessity. One of the most complex, ult'ra.-legal, humanitarian machines ever evolyed, the slow, patient work built up during two and a half years of effort, thus Is sacrificed at the Berlin government's desperate challenge to the whole neutral world in a last attempt to reach England.

A LEGISLATIVE TEST '' The Westminster Gazette:-a test of sobriety, "Peter 'Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper" is quite as good as any other; though I scarcely expected tb see it become a modi] for the drafting of a Government' bill-But clause 2 of the measure , with which it Is proposed to amend th^ output of beer (restriction) act, 1916, loudly betrays its origin. Here is the shameless plagiarism: "Where the year ending September 30, 1914.

' NVARO WIDE HEAVY FLAN-' �; HELETJE,'YARD , ElovenUi. report of the Board of Railway CoinmissiouerB for the year ending March "SlSt, 1916: During the- year covered by the period from the 1st of April, 191,",, to the .31st "March, 1916, the hoard held CO public sittings at which 47-) applications wore heard. The number of public sittings held in the vai-lous provinces were as follows: Province . No. Ontario ____......................43 Quebec ........................(... fi Nova Scotia.....................'1 Manitoba....................i..... :', Saskatchewan .................... 2 Alberta .......................... 4 ColumWa ................. 2 Total .........,................GO The applications include a large vi-rlr-ty oC matters from the complaint of a private iiidivldnnl against a railway co.'npany for refund for unused portion of a railway ticket to matters of general Importance affecting the comiminity as a whole. The number of general orders issued by tho board v.'as 25. a:id the number of general circulars issued by the board directed to all railway conip.inies subject to its jurisdiction, was K. TJiG lota! n.umbpr of or.lers issued by (he board for the j'car wa.=i 142C. Tho general orders as distinguished from other orders issued by the board are those atfocling all railway companies subject to tho board's jurisdiction. In addition to the matters heard at formal sittings of the board, a large number of i.^fo^mal complaints were dealt with. These informal complaints which are settled without the necessity of a formal hearing, entail frequently a large amount of correspondence and Inquiry on the part of the board �.nd Its officers. The* total dumber of applications, formal and infoi-mal, dealt with by the hoard for the year' was 2GG.3. In connection witli these matters it might be noted that the total number of miles travelled by the board and its officers kluring the year amounted to in round figures 451,335, and time taken ,up In formal hearings and the necessary travelling in connection therewith .equalled 44 out of every hundred working days. In the traffic department of the board the number of tariffs received and filed for the year ending March 31st, 1916, was as follows: Freight tariffs including supplement's .............52,671 Passenger tariffs including supplements....................15,041 Express tariffs Including supple- � ments...................... 1,148 Telephone tariffs including supplements.................... 2,861 Sleeping and parlor car tariffs including supplements...,____ 143 Telegraph tariffs and supplements. ......................-. 16 making a combined total of 71,880 for the year, or a grand total to date- that is to say from the February 1st, 1904, to the 31st of March, 1916-of 652,922 tariffs. . Tlie engineering department of the board made 376 Inspections covering all parts of the Dominion. The operating department investigated accidents reported by the various railway companies covering 337 persons killed and 1125 injured. By a coincidence the number killed is exactly the same as that for the year ending the 31st March, 1915, there is, however, a substantial de-ci-ease this, year in the total number injured, so that taking the total number of casualties of every description there la a marked decrease for the year. Of the. total number killed 42 per cent, were trespassers and 11 per cent, were trespassers of the number Injured. Under the heading of trespassers there was a decrease of 27 in the number killed and a decrease of 24 in the number injured as ; compared with the previous year. Of; the accidents at highway crossings 1 24 occurred at crossings already pro-; tected by gates, bells or watchmen, 11 persons "were killed and 13 were injured in accidents at points where there were gate; and watchmen provided. So long as people neglect to take Uie advantage of protective devices, such devices will be of little effect. The work of the fire inspection department of the board co-coerate.i 1 with the various proviiicia! fire-pro-; tective organizations of the Dominion, j I'.'i cniployeG;< of such organizations I wore .under appointment aa ottlcers; ol' this department during the past' year. | During the season of 1.915 a total of ]2,S1!J miles of fire guards in the lirain'e provinces were constructed'by [ the railway companies as prescribed! by tho board. During tlie past year tho Grand Trunk Pacific railway inau.eiiratod tlie exclusive use or oil as a locomotive fuel on 71S miles of its line between Prince ilupert, B. C, and .Tas-por, Alia., bringing the total of oil-1 burning mileage in Canada ,up to 1444 miles. A total of 686 fires are reported by the railway companies ' as having started within three humired feet of the raihvay tro,ck throughout the Dominion d.iiring the- fire season of 1915, (hose fires burn-in.c; over a total area of 37,26:? acres. This shows a marked decrease from | the figures of tho i)roviou8 year being 27.1 per cent, of a decrease. Tho total value of proi)erly destroyed in I he above area is estimated at ?74,-256, of which ?31,223 was for mei;-chantable timber and $11,999 toi^ young forest growth. Of the "686 fires 297 or 43 per cent, were reported as' having been caused^ by railway agencies. There has been a steady improvement in the co-operation of the railways with the fire-preventive and fire-iprotectiva agencies of the board.

The Rev. Mr. Hughes, Holly Springs, Ark., says: - "1 am a Methodist ^Iini8ter�, and Mutl'ercd from broken-down nerves,' loss of appetite and sleeplessness, I, was weak, my circulation was very poor, and I was not able to do my duty in my Parish as I felt I should. I had tried various remedies but did not seem to get any better. Through Mr. Gatlin ot Bearden, Ark., I learn-^ ed ot 'Vinol and it built me up. I regained my appetite, can sleep better and do more work." There is no secret about 'Vinol, it derivoR its power to build up the overworked, broken down, nervous system from beef and cod liver peptones, iron and manganese peptonatos, and glycerophosphates which it contains. Anyone in Lethbrldge who wishes to try 'Vinol can do so with the understanding that we will return their money if they are not satisfied.-.1. D. Higinbotham & Co., Ltd., Druggists, Lethbrldge.
