In battle the Aztecs strove to save

oners as human sacrifices to the gods.
They had the art of ambush reduced to
such a science tbatrit was nothing un
usual for them to bring home 25,000
prisoners after a campaign. Their bat
tles were not fought for the sake of
any principle* nor yet to gain territory.

ers, and the hot headed yosmg-seldiera
were given wooden swords, for fear
they might ia the heat of battle unwit
tingly slay a foe. A dead enemy was
already dead, and hence of no value
for sacrificial purposes. Were the Az
tecs humans? Well, not so that you
«ould notice. But their destruction of
prisoners on the altars of their beauti
ful temples was done in the name of
religion and hence not reprehensible.—

Herbert Russell in telling of a literary
coincidence, "had finished maturing
•the plot of his novel. 'The Death Ship,'
which is a version of the legend of
Vanderdecken. I was his amanuensis
at the time. He said to me, 'Tomor
row we will begin the story.' On the
following morning when I entered his

just received. It was from W. S. Gil

shim why he did not write a novel about

BIGGER BUSINESS IN 1916
The opening year is evidently going
to be one of the best, if not the best the
Northwest has ever had. All facts point
ty this. The banks are full of money.
The crops have been wonderful. The
mere fact that the banks are jammed with
currency would be of no interest to the
building trade if they were likely to stay
so, for it is only by putting cash into cir
culation that bills are paid and profits
madev But confidence, which is the bas.
is of new business, isbeing restored has
practically been restored all over
the country, and people are now all ready
to, go ahead.
With your sleeves rolled up, the past
year's records, entered up and forgotten,
with your mind made up for a bigger,
better business, why hesitate a second
longer. Go after the contracts. Talk
to that friend of yours who has for so
long put off his new building. Get in

if not remedied causes the hair roots

LORD KITCHENER MAY
LEAVE THE CABINET
London, Feb. 8.—Changes of great

from the cabinet as a whole, and that
a civilian of real ability for organiza

the British chief of staff "shall be re
sponsible for issuing the orders of
the government regarding military op
erations," the Daily Mail says:
"Since the creation of the ministry
of munitions no more important
change in the function of the secre
tary of war has taken place
The order means that in future army
orders will go out in the name of Sir
William Robertson, the chief of staff,
instead of that of Lord Kitchener, as
