SMITH, Auctioneer timated that two per cent of the nit rogen, one per cent ot tho phosphorus and one-quarter of one per cent of the potassium is clianged to an available form annually. If this amount is sufficient to satisfy the needs of the crop there Is no deficiency of plant food in the soli. The texture Is an important factor in determining availability. Two soils, for example, a clay loam and a sandy loam, may have the same amount of total plant food yet the foj'mor will have a greater amount available, because of the fact that It is made up of smaller particles and therefore, exposes a greater surface to the action of the different solvents in tho soli. Tho in a soluble form such as super-nhos-phate. Lime'as used In agriculture includes finely ground limestone, quick lime, hydrated lime and air slacked lime. The latter is perhaps the most preferable form. While it has the same composition as the ground limestone it la In a more finely divided blate. The distance to the quarry will determine which is the most economical form to purchase. It is not usually necessary to apply lime for the calcium or magnesium it contains, for these olomonts are seldom lacking, but because it corrects acidity, a condition which is detrimental to the growth of most plants and besides hln- organlc matter in the soil on decom- ! flei's tho decomposition ot organic mat position liberates carbon dioxide, which exerts a solvent action on the soil particles.

Bruce & Cp.> Ltd., NIERESIING SIORY FEAI FRONT London, March IG.-During tho retreat from Warsaw in the summer ot last year, a number of critics of n;-puto assured us that armed force.m were tho only objective in war. Others held that "the greatest secret ot the art of war was to make oneself mas-tor of tho lines of communication"- the lines leading from tho bases to the army in tho field. Of these two divergent views, one inclines to the opinion, as the results of a recent trip to the Canadian forces, that tho latter Is at least of equal Importance with that of the critics. Our first realization of the supremo mastery possesiiod Ijy us came when crosHing tho rhaiinei. From the time we left a certain English port until we reached tho I'Vencli coast, we saw groat activity prevailing everywhere, ve.".sol8 of every description and type passing to and fro, as If (imditlons were quite normal. To the achlove-nient of conveying thousands of troops across, must be added the hundreds of civilians that come and go eacli day. and the thousands ot tons of stores, munitions and victual.s that are transported both to inlanders aiid Franco every day ot the week. Army Service Corps Travelling from the port of disembarkation to Canadian headquarters, some fifty miles away, we saw something of the wonderful activities of the Army Service Corps, the complete command they enjoyed of the communication lines and the strategy they employed in rushing material to the firing line. Literally thousands of wagons lined every road and unpretentious lane for miles at a stretch Guns of ovei'y description and calibre, from the heavy howitzers to the new Lewis Maxim were there by the hundred, in no few cases ingeniously hidden from view to elude the vigilant airman. At certain points of the route, too, we noticed a number of sheds dotted here and there, curious looking establishments, which we were informed were utilized by the army service corps for the temporary stoppage of material. To describe the.sa interesting places would not be permitted, but it may be said they serve most Important functions in this titanic organization. The first item on our programme was a visit to see the artillery at work. Arriving at tho crest of a certain hill where they established themselves months ago, the party were shov,-n to a point ot vantage from which they were able to see the Gorman treni'hos about a mile and a half away to our lolt. Granny, Aunt Lizzie and Mother as the 15 in., 12 in., and tho nine-point two, guns are affectionately called, were all doing their bit, Jiother if anything being rather more active than the rest. Out of the twenty shells which she fired, probably for our benefit, no fewer than fifteen' found their mark and dealt the Bosch no uncertain destruction, tearing his parapets and trenches to smithereens. Every two or three minutes orders were given to fire at such and such an angle and range. In a few seconds one heord the terrific boom ot 9.2, and second later the exultant voice ot the battery major. It had got home, and nothing else mattered. The methods employed in finding the range with such mathematical accuracy cannot of course be mentioned, but it may be said they are divers and ingenious. Ono of the officers jubilantly declared that they had the enemy batteries located to a nicety and that quite recently bis guns had succeeded in silencing them on many occasions. Instruction Schools Leaving tho artillery, we drove to General Turner's instructional schools where we found men listening to lectures and practising new methods of trench warfare, grenading � and the like. Here again it Is naturally not permissible oven to hint at tho devices that await the enemy when he attempts to advance, but even it ever he does succeed in rushing the Canadian trenches, ho will find himself in a most uncomfortable plight, and with all his trouble yet to come. Later in the day, wo lunched with General Turner whom we found highly optimistic over things generally. For some reasons or other, our original program was cut short by exactly half, making it necessary for us to cover the ground within the limitations ot Tuesday and Wednesday, By way of compensation, however tho party were allowed the unique opportunity ot vialting tho trendies and ot staying the night ot Wednesday in them, each correspondent going to one of the five brigades, Tho communication trenches wo found proved a welcome change from tho slush and mud ot tho roads wo had just traversed. There was. scarcely any mud to bo seen while for the most part they were perfectly dry. It was about six in the evening when wo arrived In the firing line, an hour at which, we learnt, that Granny, Aunt Lizzie and Mother were put to bed for the night. "You won't hear any more of them tonight," said my escort. In company with ono ot tho majors 1 was duly shown through the front line trenches. Everywhere wo found tho Inda cheerful and as happy as sandboys, each man engaged on hia own particular task. Some we?.'o doing sentry duty, others wore rebuilding parapets which had been shattered the previous afternoon; some again were standing high near the sandbags peorlug In grlra earnest towards the Bosch trenches, while others were cosily tuckeil up In their parlors either enjoying a smoke, letter writing or playing some sort of game. Conditions of trench life have improved during tho past few months, and Khe CUxniMuu linos today are a prottv tolerable place lo live in. "It gols a woo bit monotonous at times" said ouo of tlip men, "but , on the A COMPROMISE Subaltern (to his mouBtache)-" Your King and oounlrr need you, and I think you ou^ht to grow. But I'll shave the rest, at usual, with Viaolia, don't you know I " VINOLIA SHAVING STICK Sold by all good DrusS'sts and Stores at 2S cents. VINOLIA COMPANY LIMITED Soap /Baftcre to 5Hl0 ^ajestg tbc f?fnfl LONDON, ENG. PARIS TORONTO 173 whole we don't fare badly." We liavo plenty to eat, drink and smoke, and (here is always a good supply of warm clean clothin,? available for us. For breakfast, about seven o'clock wo have tea or cocoa, bacon and bread. Our dinners consist of a pound ot fresh beet, potatoes, and bread and steak potatoes and broad and onions. For tea again we don't fare' at all badly. We usually got bread and jam biscuits and tea or cocoa, and on top ot all that we get as many smokes as we can very well manage. Generally, we do our own cooking on our trench fires, but whon there is a short-ago of cook.s, our rations are brought into us already prepared. The nightly round ot trench life consists of one hour in every four doing duty ot some sort; tho other three the men spend in their dugouts. Most of these parlors are extremely comfortable and in some cases have some pretension to luxury. During the two days we were privileged lo be at the front, the authorities tried to make them as profitable as possible, and our thanks are par-tlcularly due to Sir Max Aitken and Major Mauley Sims, D. S. O., who proved to bo a bear leader ot tho best type. EASY WAY TO REMOVE FRECKLES AND ERUPTIONS Some women have skin of such texture they occasionally are annoyed by tho sudden appearance ot freckles, slight eruptions or fine lines. March winds usually play havoc with sklna of that kind. In such cases if one will procure an ounce ot common meroo-lizod wax at any drug store, apply a little ot it before retiring, like cold cream, she can easily overcome the trouble. When the wax is washed off next morning, flaky skin particles come with it. The entire outer cuticle is removed In this way in a week or so, with all Its defects. No bleach could so effectually remove freckles or blemishes. The new surface la smooth, clear, fresh looking. No pain or inconvenience accompanies this simple treatment. In case of wrinkles which sink beneath the outer skin, a solution of powdered saxollte, 1 oz., dissolved in Vo pt. witch hazel, makes a face bath which Is wonderfully effective. Adv.
