It long has been known that Beeepanf&Ptus are a blessing to weak women, for they quickly correct womanly ailments, improve the appetite, purify the blood and re-establish healthy conditions. They are safe to take as they are purely vegetable and without any harmful drug. A few doses will bring better .spirits, improved health and a feeling of fitness.

CRISIS HERE STRANGEST OF WAR'S IRONIES. London, .July - 12.-"The political crisis in Canada.-which conscription has brought about is surely one of tho strangest or the war's ironies," remarks Truth. "It might hove been hoped that the Anglo-French alliance in Europe would help to assuage the I old stand in racial antagonism in the j Dominion, hut it has had precisely i tlie opposite effect. | "For Fr.uice thorn is Hp-homage i find a display of tho tricolor in pref-I veiice to the Union Jack, but flat � refusal to render her the only effec-j live service in lior extremity. It is I ovidnnt. any attempt to enforce con-, scription will cause very serious tu-j mult in the French province." FORESTRY UNITS Ottawa, July 11.-The following report of the work of the Canadian forestry corps has been received by the government from general headquarters In France: "'"here are at present 2.'.' companies of the Canadian forestry corps operating in France. Tlie (irst eight companies arrived between December last and the end of March, and five companies arrived in April, with their full technical equipment and approximately tin per cent, of their transport. iJIfchl more companies arrived In the third wek of May. It is hoped in employ fit; companies in nil by September. The companies are equipped with Canadian made saw mill machinery and tools, and I he greatest, ettlcieney and keenness is displayed by all ranks. Operations cover a large area. I-iim-In r is manufactured, Including small Umbos to be used by the troops for roads and mining. "The establishment of the companies. Including transport, is ino all rankr-'.  Thn average production varies according to the nature of the. woods. It. is said In suitable woods between 1.000 and l.BOf! tons of sawn lumber, together with sullicicnt round timber to bring the. output, up to 2,00(1 tons per lnonth, may bo expected. On round timber alone, however, a company produces from 4,000 to ti.OOO tons per month. Some of the operations are' being carried out under shell tire and one unit was recently heavily 'shelled, fortunately .no casualties resulting. "Of the companies six are employed in the army areas, although their work is greatly handicapped by having to operate in small woods, ns a rule devastated by shell tire. The dally output is most satisfactory and wood is delivered direct to armies at very short notice. "Seven companies, including the Canadian Construction company- (col-bred) are employed in the .I lira wood. The Canadian mills in operation in (his area aroused great interest amongst the French military and civil authorities, who have not hesitated to express their admiration of tho mechanical efficiency evidenced in the. design and construction of the mills. "Ten companies are, now working on tlie lines of communication. Some fine forests have recently been acquired for exploitation in this area. "An advance party lias already arrived in the Bordeaux district and is iii;i);a� necessary arrangements for opening up operations. "All companies, except one, are fully equipped in every detail with Canadian saw mill machinery and tools." ARE CONFIDENT IN JUDICIAL INQUIRY.

The question of the food supply is, in the opinion of Hie commission, the uki-M important of the problems and unless transportalion is Immediately improved, fall and winter will see famine in uianv places. Mr. Root has made the following statement to the Associated Press; "The mission has accomplished what K came here to do.
