Toronto, .March S.-Tln. .McCutcli-eoii trial reached Its linai stage today when the addresses of counsel to the Jury began, 1. V. Ilellniuth, who opened for the defence, made a tremendous attack on the conduct of thq crown's case. lie cliarscd tliat the crown counsnl had strained tlie evidence and iiad not put all the cards on llie table. "The conduct of this has been a disgrace to the administration of JuKtlce. In all iny years before the bar 1 liave never sei'n a case like it," was one of liis remarks. \ teriillc castigation of ,\. 10. (jood-win was a feature of the defence counsel's address. "Self-convicted perjurer," "Worse than a common' informer," 'Tilack-inailer," were a few of the eiilthots lie cast at the former solicitor for .McCutcheon brotliers, who has been a witness In the trial. He fnrther charged that Goodman had been the brains of the conspiracy against these men. He started tills prosecution In the Toronto Saturday Night and then went to the attorney-general. "jt was utterly disgraceful that lie sliould be sitting beside tlie crown co'iinsel. He should be behind the bars or disbarred," was another remark. The argument of his address was that all the evidence produced by the crown had failed to prove con-8i)ir!icy by the brothers. "They had put in *700,000. their whole fortune, into the business, and lost it." It was i)repostero\i8 to say that they had done this to defraud the ])ublic. They had gone down with their ship. The trial, which started on January 17tli, reached its thirty-second day today. Trial Cost $60,000 There have been 58 crown witnesses and 12 defence, and 455 exhibits filed. The stenographic report takes up 5600 pages and cost $2500. The total verbiage reaches 1,680,000 words of which 700,000 were from crown counsel, 400,000 from the defence, and 550,000 from witnesses. The cost of the trial Is estimated at $50,000. The eVery-purposo-soap where health is a prime consideration For the toilet and the bath lif obtioy Soap is unexcelled.

Bagloy, of the 82nd, Calgary, has been taken on the strength as senior major, the addition of whom will be| a great benefit to the regiment as a whole. Major Bagley having had 30 years previous experience in all military duties. Only the towns of Coleman, Blairmore, Hillcrest and Belle: vue have been recruited to give!the number mentioned above, and with a few exceptions, all  single men from these towns have come forward to tlieir country's call to do their, bit. Owing to the newly authorized, battalion to bo formed at Fernie, a great deal of territory originally conceded to tlie 192nd has been cancelled by the U. O.

Winnipeg, March S.-The problem of finding help to put in this year's crop Is practically solved by the otlV clal order from the militia depart ment, allowing for non-commissioned officers and men'on active service In Canada leave of absence not exceeding 30 days, to go out on tho farms. Soldiers will draw double pay while they are at work, that is, they will receive full pay and allowance as usual, for their services as soldiers in addition to what they can earn from I the fanners. 'The Dominion government will provide free transportation for the return trip from camp to faim not exceeding a distance of 300 miles. There are approximately 27,000 men under arms In ipjililary district no. 10 and a proportionate numlier who go out to put in the crops should be adequate for Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The province of Alberta will bo taken care of by units further west. Leave of absence will bo given for no ptlier purpose but to work on the land. Men applying for leave must present proof, that promise of work actually has been obtained, and on his return from the fields he must produce a certificate from the farmer for whom he worked, countersigned by a clorgj'man or'two responsible re-sidents in the vicinity of the land on which he worked, in the case of a man working his own land he will issue his own certificate and have It I countersigned in the same manner. I All pay .and allowance of the men on leave will be withheld to be paid I on. their return to their respective ' units.

' 'i' .,� COMBING WON'T RID HAIR OF DANDRUFF The only sure way to get rid of dandruff is to dissolve it, then you destroy it entirely. To do this, get about Jour ounces of ordinary liquid arvon; apply H at night whnn retiring; use enough to moisten the scalp and rub it In gently with the finger tips. Do this tonight, and by morning, most if not all of your dandruff will be gone, and three or four more applications will completely dlsBolve and entirely destroy every single sign and trace of it, no matter how much dandruff you may have. You will find, too, that all Itching and digging of the scalp will stop at once, and your hair will be fluffy, lustrous, glossy, silky, and soft, and look and feel a hundred times better., You can get liquid arvon at any drug store. It Is inexpensive and never fails to do the work.-^Advertisetne'nt. cu GOODS SON OF CAPT. PORTER TO DON THE KILTS One bantam for the 146th Battalion, Lleut.-Col.
