Larkhill l_s not a verj' pleasant place to be at, the .mud is awful, but we were lucky, insofar as it was frozen most of the time we were there. Aeroplanes are nekrly as common as birds and it is a fine sight to see five or six of these machines overhead.

MAHAR6 PRESIDENI 1 Frank Man Suffers Strange Qe^ih in Garage from Gas From Engine especial tn the Ileiaia) FranH, Alta., I^'ob. 15.-A coroner's jntf Inquiring into the death of Chas. Pokprny found a verdict ot accidental death by asphyxiation due to exhaust gases from a gasoline locomo-tivb, whicli the deceased was attending.^ On January 29th Pokorny went to the locomotive Khed to heat up tlie building, in order lo get the machine started. He did so and as the niglit was very cold lie closed all the doors and windows. When his j)artner came to relieve him, )ic found Pokorny lying on tho floor, face downward and (luickly summoned help tailed to revive him. ^ Dr. II. A. McDonald, who arrived an hour later could only announce the man dead. This accident should be a warning to automobile owners not to let their engines run inside tlie' garage when doors' and window.s are closed. Gasoline engines, even when running perfectly will give off carbon monoxide in quantities ot from .-, to \ri per cent, and as low as 0.5 per cent, ot this gas in the atmosniiere will prove fatal. CAN RAISE RIGHT AI HOME Ottawa; Feb. 16.-There is-no truth in the report that the Dominion government will float a loan in New York this spring. The only issue which is in contemplation is the Canadian domestic war loan, the prospectus tor which will appea;r in the' press early in March. 'Proceeds of this issue, it is expected will carry the government along until about the end of July. It is said that the preliminary announcement of the third domestic issue has been well received, and tnat it already promises to be a success. The policy ot the minister ot finance Is to raise his loans from the Canadian people so that a considerable part of the war debt will be held by Canadian'people. It is pointedNiut that the laSt domestic loan was over subscribed by-ihiore than' one hundred million dbllars';-Since then there has been a- big'-itffirease ih'- national savings owing to the munitions business and - tlie hlj^h*^^ price's ;?obl'ained froni agricui'tural.:?aid 'other products. It is believed ttjat^ Canada's economic condltidtt'is such; tliat^she can readily raise the moiiey required ' for her wai; expenditure vtlthin her own borders. > ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? -> U.

There are 8,750 overseas votes out of which the anti-prohibition interests . expect to beat the civilian majority of six thousand. The "drys," it is stated; have about given up hope that the measure' will pass, but the wet majority is likely to be not more than 200 or 300.
