This we may look to as the precursor of naval activity, T\ith stirring events to follow, to prove that Britannia still holds up lier trident, and niaiutaJns her pro'.v-ess on the seas. With the loss of the Good Hope and oUicr ships wo have paid ilie "price of admiralty,'' but we have nuNV certainly started to exact the toll. War news on sea and land is distinctively enrouraginjr and tlie omens are propitious. On the latter in Bel-glum the tightening of the censorship shows tliat important movements are taking place, and the enemy is not likely to gain his object of capturing Dunkirk and Calais. �V^Tiile opemtions In Belgium are carefully cloaked, our interest turns to the doings of tlie Russian troops In the eastern zone of conflict. Here there is a distinct menace to Germany which will throw a new complexion on her weatera campaign. Meanwhile it Is satisfactory to know that the Allies axe now on Germati Boil at three different points, Alsace, East Prussia and Silesia, and the rolling back of the Kaiser's military machines towards Berlin will (be started east and west. m Penniless OU Men You know many of them-men who in their prime made plenty of money, but who spent as freely as they earned.

BUSINESS BETTER THAN USUAL' Though Alberta raised a smaller crop in ISli than in the previo'js year, owing to the partial crop failure due to the drouth, the farmers of the province collectively will realize more actual money out ol their operations this year than they did last, vhile at the same time they will show an increase in the value of "stock In hand" of nearly nine million dollars- truly a report to be optimistic about and one to dispel blue ruin. The estimate prepared by the Department of Agriculture and published in the Herald yesterday should make not only farmers, but business men sit up and think. "Business as usual" is the only way to describe the report. It should give us all heart for the future, and though we in the south are not so fortunate as those in the north of the province, it should inspire us to bend our energies to P 'ICKED UP IN ASSING FOR THE BUSY MAN James Yulo, a prominent stockbreeder, died at Winnipeg.

THE HILLCREST DISASTER The eommission of enquiry into the Hillcreat mine disaster, whose report appears today, has evidently left no �tone unturned to arrive at the cause of the explosion. Apparently no one uraa criminally negligent. It Is to be regretted that circumstances made It impossible to arrive at the definite cause so that similar accidents might he guarded against in future. One lesson, however, is that in mining one cannot be too careful. When operations are nmning smoothly, laxity In enforcing the rules and regulations Is liable to creep in, miners and operators being equally guilty in this re-Bpect, It is only by the observance of the utmost care at all times, by all parties connected with the mine, that the likelihood of an e.\-plosion may ibe reduced to a minimum. When that has been done, human agencies cannot be found guilty in case of disaster. London, Nov. 10.-Speaking at the Lord Mayor's Banquet last night Premier Asquith told his hearers t/aat they should not be moved unduly by the conaicting fortunes of a campaign which was going to be a long struggle.

SAYS BIRD OF PEACE SPREADS HOG CHOLERA The Housekeeper is RIgtif Sometimes a housekeeper requires a quick leavening agent, and finds she has no baldng powder. What does she do? She raises her biscuit by a mixture of cream of tartar and soda, or soda and sour milk She may not get the proportions quite right, but she knows her food is safe. But does she ever use a mixture of alum and soda? Was there ever a housekeeper who bought alum and soda to make a home made baking powder? Intuitively she feels it would be unsafe. Then why use baking powder made from aUim or the same mixture that the housekeeper would not dare to mix and use in her food? Alum is alum, whetiier bought in the drug store or in baking powder. S3 is made from pure cream of tartar and contains no alum, lime or phosphate. There is absolute safety in its use. Home, Nov. 9. - A demand upon ! Germany tiiat Turl:cy end the fighting in Tripoli against the Italians will be forwarded to Berlin by Baron Sidney Sonnino, minister of foreign afiairs, and l^remier Salandra. The protest is addressed to Germany because of the Kaiser's recent promise that his new ally will not invade the Italian possessions in Africa. It is believed here that Turkey will force a crisis in Italy by aggression on her colony. Despatches indicate that Bedouins and Arabs are being incitPi! to revolt, and it is feared that amhition on the part of Turkey t:> r.gain the provinces recently lost may involve Italy in the general conflict.

Figuratively speaking, we also place upon the pedestal of our imagination, those high ideals, those lofty aspirations, by which, in our more thoughtful moments, we would wish to guide our conduct. Among those guiding principles, why not place upon a pedestal of its own, an ideal that may be better described as "Canada First," rather than " Made in Canada." The "Made in Canada" movement stands for far more than mere commercial patriotism. Pride of country, pride of national resources, pride of national accomplishment in the realms of literature, art and science, pride of virile citizenship, and pride of national destiny, are all embraced within the broad sv/eep of this deep seated and soul stirring movement. Future generations will look back to 1914 as an epoch marking year in Canada's history if you, in common with all her citizens, will only resolve, from this day forward, to be guided by the motto UA "CANADA FIRST" 567?1662 05279???856834014673 83?85?1743562?25972106?67850306123?75633370323?74177343835 70435960?00517?263?054?7618396 03 23235353535353535353482323534853482348484853485323235348534823484800485323535348532348290702000200 ;
