An Aggressive Policy.
The demand or the British peo-
less England's naval supremacy
is to be put to a test which may
destroy it before it so much as
pie that the aggressive be taken comes in contact with the full

struction of three British cruis
ers by German submarines is in
small danger of being complied
with. One reason therefor is
vthat the Germans would ask
, nothing better. They have with-
drawn their fleet into a fortified
ijharbor -on the North Sea from
'which the Kiel Canal leads to
another fortified harbor on the
.Baltic. -The approach to both is
.- served with mines. The German
lleet is thus in a position to say
'to both the .English and the Rus
sians thus far and no farther.
'The German fleet has been pre

The strategy so far pursued
by Admiral Jellicoe has been to
keep the German men-of-war
bottled up, while English cruis
ers have swept the sea for Ger
man merchantmen. In the two
encounters that have occurred
the English suffered -but little if
any of the worst of it. They
have lost three obsolete cruisers
and some 2,000 men from a sub
marine attack, but the Germans
suffered no less heavily when
the squadron under Admiral
Beatty tolled five of their cruis-.
ers out to sea to be sunk under
the guns of battleships. On the
whole honors are easy in this re
gard and England has retained
the essential advantage of being
able to land its troops at will in
Belgium or France, to protect its
own ships of commerce and to
harass those of the enemy.
It is annoying, of course, to
discover that British cruisers are
not immune against submarine
attack. It might be more costly
to make a wholesale experiment
of their ability to withstand

Someone has well said that the
reason why so many boys and
girls are leaving the farm is be
cause they are in a large meas
ure ignorant of the possibilities
of the life they are leaving and
the life to which they are going.
It would apper on reflection that
agricultural education, consider
ed in its border aspects, could
hardly have a more useful or
more worthy object than mak
ing very clear to the minds of
boys and girls in rural commun
ities the real facts as well as
possibilities of both city and
country life. Such education
ought to set forth the dignity
and worth of agriculture and its
allied lines, and to make clear
that while there are opportun
ities in the city, they are by no
means what they seem to be at
distance and seldom give one an
opportunity to acquire a position

It is as much a duty of the
country pastor to exhort us to
own a home while on earth as it
is to inspire us, to build a man
sion in the skies.
The rural press, the pulpit and
the school are a trinity of power

must utilize to his fullest capac
ity before .he can occupy a com
manding position in public affairs
known as "pink eye," and at
tacks in rapid succession a large
portion of the herd. It is dis
tinctly a contagious disease and
may originate by the purchase
of a new animal which is already
affected, and from that animal
it may be spread to all the re
maining cattle ia the herd. The
condition is more prevalent in
the hot summer months, espec
ially during a period of drought
similar to the one experienced
throughout the entire State this
Symptoms. The condition is
usually first noticed by a profuse
discharge of tears from both
eyes, which constantly keeps
both sides of the face moist. The
eye-lids are swollen, painful to
pressure, and invariably closed,
especially so in intense sunlight.
These symptoms are usually ac
companied by a slight elevation
in tempperature, loss of appetite
and a diminution in the flow of
milk- If the condition is left to
go untreated the discharge from
the eyes assumes a purulent form
usually accompanied by a slight
cloudiness of the cornea.
Treatment. Affected ammsls
should be isolated in a cool, dark
portion of the, barn and given
from one to one and one-half
pounds Glaubers' salts asadrench
and one tableapoonful potassium
nitrate added to each six gallons
of drinking water. In addition,
the eye symptons are best treat
ed by washing the eyes out twice
each day with a four per cent,
solution of boric acid, but this
may be substituted by a 1 to 100
solution of silver nitrate once a
day. In severe sase3 where the
lesions of the cornea are present
this latter treatment is to be
ually not a severe disease when
properly treated and the above
recommendations, if properly ap
plied, should soon bring the out
break to a close.
