German Diplomacy
Has    rioen    Successful    in    Making
Knemies in All Nations
Wli.it is thc next triumph reserved for German diplomacy? What
field is there Ir it fur the exercise of
tlie Wilhcnistrasse's great gifts of
finesse? It Irs now been crowned
with repeated successes until Ihere is
no quarter of llic world in which
Geftnany i* ui t confronted with a
drawn sword. To date German diplomacy has arrayed eleven countries
against Germany, a record, it is believed, that has never been surpassed by the diplomats of any nation.
After the tu- Ic the Uniled States
gave them probably they are equal,
too, to any job that remains before
them, They haven't much room lefl
to work in, only Soulh America and
China, ami they already have induced China to break off relations
South America, hy reason of its isolation, may be a harder job, but the
German diplomats doubtless arc
-.���orking on il. If tltey are baffled
there and tire South American countries succeed in remaining friendly
to Germany, or even in a state of
hostile neutrality toward her, it will
bc the first real setback German
diplomacy has encountered in a triumphant cour.-1 now extending nearly three years,    Kansas City  Star.

Dodd's Kidney I'ills did for uie," says
Miss Demcrs. "I am never without
them in lhc house, My case was one
of the worst.
"I had tiied several medicines from
the doctor and was getting no better
when 1 decided to try Dodd's Kidney
fills. I took seven boxes and all my
rheumatism, sick headache and indigestion was gone.
"When my father saw how much
good Dodd's Kidney Pills had done
mc he began to take them for kidney trouble.  Hc is better now."
Dodd's Kidney Tills make healthy

Edotn, ami for a time held Samson
as a prisoner, till, lifting the gates of
thc place from their fastenings, he
went oft with them, casting them on
the Mount Muntar, before Hebron.
The further progress of the campaign

When Great Britain fixes prices

Strengthening the Nerves
It is the opinion of llic best medical authorities, after long observation, that nervous diseases are more
common and more scrioii3 in '.he
spring than at any other tine of the
year. Vital changes in the system,
after long winter months, may cause
much more trouble than the familiar
spring weakness and weariness from
which most people suffer as thc result of indoor life, in poorly ventilated and often overheated building��.
Official records prove that in April
and May neuralgia, St. Vitus dance,
epilepsy and other forms of nerve
troubles are at their worst, and that
then, more than any other lime, a
blood-making, nerve-restoring tonic
is needed.
'The antiquated custom of taking
purgatives in the spring is useless,
for lhc system really needs strengthening, while purgatives only gallop
through thc bowels, leaving you
weaker. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
are the best medicine, for they actually make thc new, rich, red blood
that feeds thc starved nerves, and
thus cure the many forms qf nervous
disorders, 'lhcy cure also such other
forms of spring troubles as headaches, poor appetite, weakness in the
limbs, as well as remove unsightly
pimples and eruptions. In fact tlicy
unfailingly bring new hcallh and
sl length to weak, tired and depressed
men, women and children.

Others have sown. 'Ihere are times
when the thoughts o( the non-agii-
eultural classes nun to llie farm,
When crops fail and prices of foodstuffs soar, the people of the towns
and cities arc disposed lo attribute
the fault to the farmer. Little effort
is made to co-ordinate town and
country, lo bring producer and consumer into touch, and to obliterate
the lines of cleavage that too often
keep (heni^ apart, 'lhc average
townsman h ignorant of the economies of farming. lie canot understand
why the farmer should not always be
willing to raise an abundance of
crops at low prices. Problems of
labor, transportation, marketing fa-1
ci.litics, and market prices, ovcr which
the farmer has no control, do not enter into his calculations. He has a
vague idea that Agricultural Departments take good care of thc fanner,
and see to it that the road between
the farm and tlie lown is paved not
only wilh good intentions, but'also
with legislative enactments that make.

that neither thc farmer nor the consumer has had a square deal in lhe

that does not free the farmer from

The railways were made for Canada, not Canada for the railways. Tlie
same sound ethical principle applies
to all the artificial harriers between
the farm and the town. It i-t a disgraceful tiling that, at llie very mo-

men are turned lo the problem of
increased food production, men arc
Rambling on the Winnipeg market in
October wheat before the, seed has
been put in the ground. The famine
stares the.world in the face unless
food production is greatly increased
this year, is the deliberate conciu-
cion of competent auiliorities who
cannot be regarded as mere alarmists. The American continent, which
is free from the darker tragedies of
war, has a great duty to fulfill in tlie
production of surplus crops su'.ncicnl
to meet the craving necessities of
countries more unfavorably circumstanced. Under the most favorable
harvesting conditions thc situation
next year will be very grave. The
abnormal influences of war In the
reduction of crop acreage must be
counterbalanced by a concentrated
effort on this side of the Atlantic to
avert the appalling suffering and privation that threaten the Allied countries through lhc shortage in food-
MnlTs. Steps must bc taken, and
quickly, not only to Increase the
acreage, under crops, but also lo provide for the proper marketing and
distribution of tiie. crops when harvested. Waste must bc eliminated
and prices so regulated that the poor
as well as the rich shall have a fair

The appeal today is lo the farmer.
In his hands n'Sls the greal decision.
It is with no desire to force his hand
or to limit his freedom of action that
thc towns and cities arc combining
to co-operate as far as possible in

'Ihe Disabled  Soldiers'   Resurrection
to-a New Life of Activity
Canada should he as proud of her
wounded soldiers' vlclory over their
WOltnda as she in nf lhe glorious

heroic, as Iheir desperate defence ol

Vimy ridge,
A preacher on Easter morning was
thanked for the inspiring sermon he
had just preached, on the resurrection, He said: "1 had my lext sitting
in front of me���a man in khaki, with
an empty sleeve. He has had two
resurrections already. He was buried
by a shell explosion, and was dug
out only just in lime lo save his life-
That was the first. lie spent months
in hospital, fighting his way back lo
health. That was lhe second.
"Doctoring and nursing of course
did much for him; so did the exercises and occupations that they provide nowadays���perhaps the best
part of the treatment. But the man
himself was working out bis own rc-
surrcction, by resolutely pulling his
own will-power Into the task. Now
he is almost ready to go out into the
world, a better and abler man, he
says, ihan he was before, in spite of
his lost arm.
"While the rest of us arc thinking
of a resurrection beyond the grave,
he has won a resurrection this side
of it, to a new life of activity and
independence among his fellow-countrymen."
Authentic cases resembling that
are not rare in the records of the
Military Hospitals Commission. Here
are a few that have just been communicated to us:
A mechanic wdio enlisted In the
Princess Patricia's Regiment was
wounded, returned to Canada, spent
three months in a convalescent hospital, and now earns double his former pay, having taken full advantage
of thc mechanical drawing and arithmetic classes carried.on llicrc. Writing to the hospital instructor, he
"When I enlisted, I was earning
about $3 a day at my trade. At present, and since my discharge from
military service, I am, technically, a
better man all around; I am able
��ow to hold a job as foreman in a
machine shop, with more than twice
the. salary 1 was gelling before. This
benefit to me is greatly due to your
practical information, and my only
^ et is that 1 was unable, after my
i hargc, to continue instruction
with you as you had advised."
Not every man, of course, can
"double his pay." But one of the
most cheering facts proved by experience during the war has been
this���tbat almost all the disabled
men, including the very seriously
wounded, can be equipped once more
with power to earn a good living.
And often, as Lord Shaughnessy
said the other day, thc occupations
and training provided by tlie Military
Hospitals system "reveal astonishing
talents which even thc man himself
did nol know he possessed."

A Long Way From '76
Anglo-Saxon Race Finding Common
Ground on the Defence
of Liberty
British-Americans have nursed ever since 76 the firm belief that the
American Revolution was in ils basic
principles a jusi revolution. They
havc been frond lo remember that in
that great struggle George Washington, an Englishman, led a nation of
Anglo-Saxons into bailie against thc
tyranny of a German king of England. Out of this feeling there has
grown throughout lire counlry a firm-
founded belief that ultimately lhe
destinies of thc two great Anglo-
Saxon races would again unite at
some future day in thc defence of
some common cause. An American-
British alliance is one of the. foremost hopes of such prominent British-Americans as Viscount Bryce.
We arc a long way from 76, when a
Brilish officer organizes in lhc United States a regiment of British-born
to fight for the defence of Old Glory.
Evidently thc Anglo-Saxon race has
found once more a common ground
in thc defence of liberty.���Baltimore
A Good Sucueistion For Both Parties
To Consider
Many a western farmer hait clamored for hired help, aud when hc has
got, it, it has ruined him. Labor
hurt always been scarce in Western
Canada with the result that it lias
ofl en been able to demand wages out
of all proportion to its value on the
land. It is scarcer today llian ever it
has been in the history of the country, and the question arises: "What
is going to bc done lo put a reasonable limit on the wages of ihe hired
It he Is allowed lo put up his services to auction, and close with the
highest bidder, a new rate of pay
will bc established that will not read-
ill be relinquished, even when prices
of grain and cattle have dropped lo
a normal figure. A dangerous precedent is liable In bc set that will spell
the ruin of many of our farmers in
the  years  lo come.
There is tlie obvious solution that
fanners throughout Western Canada
should get together and iix a standard wage for skilled ami unskilled
labor respectively, the figures to bc
based on the season of the year, But
this would need a basis of cp-opera-
tion that does not exist among our
farmers, unhappily, or many evils
they are subject lo would speedily be
Let us look at the question from
the hired man's point of view, Perhaps in 60 doing we may find the
answer,    remembering    that    today's
| hired man is tomorrow's hired man's
In the majority of cases, the farm
laborer is not in Western Canada
merely for a wage. He has his own
ambitions, fortunately for the coun-
tiy, which probably centre on a
homestead which he means to take up
j one day, when hc has capital enough.
I He hires himself out meantime,
partly to acquire that necessary cap-
1 ital, partly to gain lhc no loss neccs-
' sary  experience  of  western  farming
j conditions. When thc question of llis
wages arises, he naturally stands out
for every cent he thinks he can demand. Ahead of liim arc months of
rather irksome, and unquestionably
hard work the fruits of which, as he
sees it, can only be reckoned in dollars that will bring him nearer to his
own independence.
This self-centered attitude is equally shared by the farmer, who sees iu
the hired man a necessary piece of
human machinery, to whom so many
dollars a month must bc paid to
crank it up for work.
Now surely these relations between
lhe farmer aud thc hired man in a
country like Western Canada arc absolutely wrong. ,Except in the ease
of large farms, employing a number
of hands, and with the result of the
year's work practically guaranteed,
the present system of wages gives
rise to conditions diametrically opposed to the best interests of both
farmer and hired man.
In seventy-five cases out of a hundred, better and more profitable relations might be established between
the Iwo, on thc following basis
Let tiie farmer pay the hired man
a minimum salary of say $30 a month
and a bonus on the crop. Instead of
treating the hired -.nan as a necessary
evil, and as a kind of living mortgage
on thc harvesting of his wheat, put
him on a partnership basis, and give
him a quarter, a fifth, or a sixth
share in thc farm, tbe extent of the
interest to be determined by the size
of the crop, the length of his services ou the land, and his degree of
capacity and experience. An agreement should bc drawn up by a local
solicitor, so that the hired man will
know that his interests are properly
| protected, and that hc is actually part
owner in the forthcoming harvest,
and can collect his share thereof, as
soon as it is threshed.
Such an understanding should redound to thc benefit of both parlies.
It would give the hired man a much
more enviable position, ten limes llis
interest in  his work, and the oppor-
j Utility to make a substantial slake,
considerably in excess of accumulated wages, by his own labor and initiative. It would give the fanner a
comrade .is anxious as himself to
harvest his crops on the most profitable basis, and it v, culd ensure thai
lhe laud ilself paid llic man's wage,
according to the yield, which would

If there is left in the world any

must pay for the wanton devastation

vain that their dispatches plead military necessity. Law and custom of

will bc fought somewhere within its

Iu the course of a notable speech
in opposition to au election during
the war, ex-Premier Asqiiith maintained that au appeal to the electorate could not be honestly made
when so many of the t-leclors were
absent in the trenches, His words
are so applicable to Canada in view
of the agitation for a war election
in the Dominion, that they should
be given the widest possible publicity.   Sai'' the Kx-Premier:
"Voters fighting ill various theatres of
war would not be able to record their
votes. An election under these conditions would uot be an election at all. It
\. ould be a farce and a sham, and nobody would regard the House so chosen
as possessing In any real sense the moral authority either for legislation or
criticism of administration. To take a
course which would necessitate the holding of all election under such circumstances would be to fly in the face ot
common law, common fairness, and
common sense,"
Every word of this applies with

Possibilities of theTelephone
There is an excellent instance in Vancouver of how a suburban drug merchant built up business by telephone, Two
morals adorn the tale. One, that such a possibility is open
to eveiy shopkeeper; two, that with the telephone in the house
one never needs to travel, even as far as the comer store, And
the telephone is just as effective iu reaching outside points.
No matter where you want to go, the telephone will take you.
No time wasted, uo^travelling expense.

and there will be none for export.
The outlook ill New Brunswick

There were many sounds ill thc

slriking what ever was in their path.
Suddenly a new sound came ill ihc

Inside the privet hedge--the. privet
was almost as sweel as the syringa���
the Squire noticed the plover's call
and wondered. How on earth did the

upland, with its fall to the valley?
'Ihere were no marshy places, no

of thc New Collage he had heard the

was very loud for a plover. And���
there wcrc no plovers there. It was
. someone imitating the plover; a sig
nal of some Und; a lover's call, or
perhaps onc of the village boys call
ing to another.
While he listened the door of tin
Old Cottage opened, sending a long
flood of light down lhc path between
the apple tiers.  Dolly slood on the
threshold, came oul and seemed   to
listen, standing just beyond the little
green  porch.   She listened, her brad

The Mosquito Peril
Danger     From     Disease     Carriers
Should be Better Known
Onc of the greatest discoveries in
the history of medicine was that of,
Dr. Ronald Ross, who, at Calcutta,
in July, 1898, found that the spores
of malarial parasites arc concentrated in the salivary gland of the mosquito. As Dr. Ross himself wrote,
"The exact route of infection of this
great disease, which annually slays
its millions of human beings and
keeps whole continents In darkness,
was revealed. These minute spores
I enter the salivary gland of lhc mosquito aud pass with its poisonous
saliva directly inlo the blood of men.
Never in our dreams had' wc imagined so wonderful a talc as this."
Until lately it was not known whether a disease-spreading mosquito could
infect more than one person. Recent
experiments of the public health service of the United Slates governnieni
have proved that an infected malar
ial mosquito ran Infect several per
ranis wilhoui again obtaining bio nl
from an original source of infection,
and that an infected mosquito retains
her ability to infect wilh malaria for
at least _5 days. Even if a niosquili
empties her available supply of malarial parasites into one man, she may
infect a second man a few hours or
a few days laler llirougli a new
generation of parasites. This is a
most important t discovery, for ii
shows that thc individual disease-
laden insect is a veritable machine-
gun in point of danger, and il emphasizes thc necessity for stamping

For  Regenerated Belgium
Flans to Build Railroads Like Those
of This Continent
Regenerated Belgium   will   model
some of her important railway lines
on the American plan. Railway capitalists of that outraged nation have
sent an agent lo America to study
railroad operating methods, railway
shops, and, more especially, the important electric installations ou trunk
lines in various parts of the country.
The name of this Belgian audit is
Joseph Carlicr. Hc is Assistant Professor of Railways at the University
cf Liege. Professor Carlier said lis
believed that at least $_00,000,000
v ould be spent to place thc railways
or Belgium on a proper footing after
the war, and that the United States
would doubtless bc called upon to
supply a large part of thc new equipment.
Mr, Carlicr is also a member of
the special commission which was in-
slalled in Paris last fall, thc members having been appointed by the
Belgian minister, for the study of
electrification of the Belgian railways.

Love of life in the open is fostered by service ou the field of battle,
and this influence will attract many
of the fighters of Europe to farming
and the restoration of ravaged lands.
The military experience will have increased the manual skill and technical efficiency of thousands of other
soldiers. Modern agencies for thc
distribution of labor arc more numerous and scientific than they wcrc a
century ago, a generation ago. W c

Make the Boy a Partner
Secure His Interest in the Business
Side of the Farm Work
Six per cent, of tlie '100 farmers
who wcrc visited in connection with
an agricultural survey by lhc Commission of Conservation in Dundas
county in 1916, wcrc paying members
of the family who remained at home
to work on the farm. No farmer
was found who had taken the mem-J
bcrs of the family into active and
actual partnership in the farm enterprise.
It is essential that many of our
best boys remain on llic farm and
help in developing rural life inlo what
it could and should bc. Sonic of our
farm boys may be better suited for
occupations other than farming, bin
those who ar* suited for farming
and wish to farm should bc given
encouragement to do so.
Boys on the farm are too often al
lowed to drift along with very little
attention being paid to them. Thej
boy will be more likely to become a
willing worker if Iiis interest is
aroused in the business side of his
work aud hc will gain ability lo save
if be is taught to spend thoughfully
and wisely. These two factors, willingness to work and ability lo save,
arc fundamental for future success.
Permit the boy to participate in the
practical business transactions of the
farm as the conditions allow. Let
him do some of the buying and selling. When hc has decided lhat he
wiil bc a farmer, the father may be
gradually relieved from some of his
responsibilities through a partnership management.���F.C.N, in Conservation.
