Last year about this time we offered to rent a Sew E Z Sewing
machine motor to anyone for a
very small sum per day.
To every dollar paid iu rent for
the motor we gave one chance'in a
drawing which was to be held as
soon as we had received ;,the price
of the motor iu rents. There are
still a few chances left, and we
would strongly advise anyone who
has any sewing to do to give this
proposal a thought.
The motor does all the labor of
sewing, leaving nothing for you to
do but guide the material, and does
all this at a cost of about half a
cent an hour for current.

Nerviiine Never Fails
When thiil cold conies, how i.i it to
be cured? This method is simplicity
itself. Hull the chest nud throat vis-1
orously with "Nerviiine." Rub it in
good and deep. Lots of rubbing
can't do any harm. Then put sonic
Nerviiine in the water and use it as,
a gargle; this will case the cough, cut
out the phlegm, assist iu breaking Up j
the cold quickly,
There is no telling how quickly
Nerviiine breaks up a hard racking
cough, cases a light chest, relieves a
pleuritic pain. Why, there isn't another liniment with half the power,
the penetrative qualities, the. honest
merit that has iiiiulir Nerviiine lhe
most popular American household
A large 50c bottle of Nerviiine
cures ills of the whole family, and
makes doctor's bill small. Gel it today. The large si/e is more economical than lhc -5c trial size. Sold by

The Study of Russian
German as a language will not be
popular iu Canada after the war.
Neither for the matter of thai will it
be popular anywhere else in lhc llritish Empire, wliicli is not to be. wondered at. No doubt a certain number
of people, attracted by German literature and anxious to study_ at first
hand the amazing phenomena of the
Hun mind as disclosed during the
lust two years, will learn German in
future. Liul most people will leave
it severely alone. What will take ils
place? Unquestionably French will
bc studied more llian ever, liul there
is onc language besides French which
Canadian students would do well to
acquire. That is Russian. Afler the
war Canada's trade with Kussia
should grow rapidly. The channels
through which it will flow arc now
being made by the shipment of war
supplies, in "the future these channels will bc deepened. And the need
for a closer understanding between
Canada and Russia will then be imperative.���Vancouver World.

Think Twice Before Selling
Fable   of  the   Man   Who  Did  Not
Want to Sell His Farm
A farmer who bad decided to sell
his property listed it with a real
estate dealer who wrote a very good
description of the plare. When the
agent read il over lo lhe farmer for
Ills approval, the old man said, "Read
that again." After the second reading the farmer sat for several mo-
tnents in a thoughtful mood, finally
said, "1 don'l believe 1 want to sell,
I've, been looking for just such a
place all my life and it never occurred to inc that I had il until you described it to me. No, 1 don't want lo
sell out."
T',18 slory contains a lesson for
farmers whether the story is only
fiction or an actual occurrence. Many
do not appreciate Iheir own farms
until someone points out tllc desirable features, Again, real rslate men
have a way of describing farm 01'
other propel ly, bringing out thc
merits and passing over llic undesirable features in ,i way to give the
reader a very exaggerated idea of
lhc farm, while every statement about
il  may bc, strictly accurate.

In tills letter is told once more lhe
slory which comes front many thousands of women. It is thc story of
exhausted nerves, of a run-down system and of all tbe accompanying
misery of sleeplessness, headaches
and loss of energy and vigor.
But there is a silver lining to lhis
cloud. There is the light of new hope
and courage which comes with the
use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
This letter is so representative of
the kind we nre daily receiving lhat
you can judge from it what ymi
might expect from this treatment
under similar circumstances.
Mrs. Conrad Schmidt, R. R, No. 1,
Mllvcrton, (int., writes; "Two years
ago last spring 1 was run down, had
nervous prostration, and was in a
terribly nervous condition. I could
not sleep or cat. Could scarcely
count thc nights that 1 passed without sleep, and if I did cat, had sick
headaches and vomiting spells. My
limbs would swell so badly that it
hurt inc lo walk.      1  would jump up
iu bed, awakened by bad dreams; in
fact, 1 was so bad 1 thought 1 could
not live, and started to use Dr.
Chase's Nerve F'ood without much
"Il tvas not long before I began ta
improve under this treatment, and I
can truthfully say it lias done ine a
world of good. It look some lime to
get the nervous system restored, but
1 kept right on using the Nerve Food
regularly, and gradually gained in

at birth, and though my friends were
anxious afler the condition 1 was in,
I got over that line, and now weigh

Food 1 was a mere skeleton,"
You arc not asked to expect miracles from 1 'r. Chase's Nerve F'ood.

strength you can depend absolutely
on lhis great food cure to produce
the desired results.   SOc a box, 6 for

The Market Report
Supplied by Randall, Gee & Mitchell,
Limited, Winnipeg
A very positive feature of the
world's wheat siluation under the
conditions now existing is that the
markets arc more sensitive to bullish
than lo bearish news. Thc underly-
I ing condition is bullish, and while
this will not prevent wide price fluctuations, thc chances arc more favorable to the maintenance of a high
level than to any permanent decline.
So far as present indications arc a
criterion, the beginning of the third
year in the European struggle finds
the wheat position lhc strongest it
has been since that cvcnlful August
of 1914. ln two out of three seasons
of the war the harvests have been
disappointing, hi 1914 it might well
he said that the breadstuffs needs of
the world were almost wholly dependent on this continent, and while 1915
was a most favorable year in thc
surplus producing counlries, the present season is one of disappointment.
The wheat market since the first of
last July has been a most remarkable
onc. There have been great bull periods before, but it is very doubtful
if these great price movements have
been based ou such substantial
grounds. The trade has never seen
heretofore a market which recorded
so great an advance ostensibly on
sheer speculation, and when that
speculation went "stale" failed to
turn sharply in the other direction
and record a decline almost eiiual lo
the advance, if indeed it did not show
a loss greater than the upturn.
It is the firm undertone of thc
market at the higher level that is
most impressive, ll is confirmatory
of the strong commercial position of
wheat independent of speculation.
Few will dispute that previous lo last
week there was a decided shift in
speculative sentiment to (lie short
side of the market when prices had
shown such marked hesilency to go
higher, Based on the history of previous bull markets, this growing
bearisliness bad excellent precedence,
but these abnormal limes and the
market proved to be stronger than
the speculative clement realize.

As the number of motor cars multiplies, the more evident it is that
constant care by motorists is required. The highways are not being
widened proportionately. There is a
continually greater demand upon the
available road space. Suppose a
million or a million and a half new
cars come on lhc market next season. Many of ihese will be operated
by inexperienced drivers. There will
be many accidents, of course. One
great trouble is lhat even an experienced and careful driver is not safe,
because au irresponsible person may
at any moment run into him.���Editorial in Providence Journal.

Lord Shnughnessy Says That There Must Bc a Selection of the
Desired Classes and a Refusal to Accept Any and livery
Settler Who Might Offer lo Conic to Canada
Lord Sliaughncssy, president of i!,e
Canadian Pacific Railway-nfler returning from a prolonged lour oi inspection uf the company's system m
the West, gave a mosl cheering report on condition- in lhc four Western Provinces,
tiling asked aboul immigration after lhe war, llis Lordship made several important statements, In the
lirsl place, hc said that even if llicrc
was a movement toward Canada immediately alter lhe war, il COllld not
be handled, since il would take con-
ildcrablc lime to get ihc troops back,
and there would be. a great deal of
preliminary adjustment in Europe, lu
the second place, he said that after
the war there ought to be a much
iniiii' thorough administration oi ihe
immigration problem.
lie said lhat in addition lo dealing
in a bitter way with the immigrant
afler lie reached Canada, there should
be perfect supervision at the point of
origin. There must be a selection of
the desired classes, and refusal to accept any and every settler who might
offer to come to Canada.
In the third place, llis Lordship
said lhat after the war every means
would bc used to present the advantages of Canada to the intending settlers and to all desirable colonists
who might wish to uuike new homes
in new countries.
The Canadian Pacific would continue to make every effort to aid
these settlers after they reached the
Dominion. Hc expected that the policy of the ready-made farm would be
continued, but he thought that instead of building bouses, immigrants
might be furnished with materials
for buildings at the lowcSt possible
prices and be allowed lo construct
their own buildings, thus reducing
the cosl and affording the newcomers
employment for the first months of
their residence in the Dominion.
"Wc have no manner of doubt with
reference to the future of Canada after the war," said His Lordship. "In
the course of a few years there will
be a satisfactory immigration from
Europe, and thc development of the
country will continue, and go forward
as rapidly as is desirable. Canada has
fully demonstrated its productive capacity, and in the course of a few-
years, if wc do our duty, it will be
the equal of any country in the world.
With reference to the Western Provinces, I would say that I have never
wavered in my faith in them."
War and Women's Work
New Place of Women Brought About
by War Conditions
The new place of v,omen in lite
world is considered in au Interesting
article in the London Times, Thc
dominant idea is thai women have become the comrades of men. That implies equality���nol uniformity. There
is danger of the loss of certain lillle
graceful courtesies such as the raising of the hat or the man opening
lhc door fur the woman, If we keen
steadily ill view the idea "f equality
and justice wc may be confident lhat
what is good will survive, and what
is superfluous will disappear.
Alter all, there was a good deal ot
humbug and hypocrisy iu the. old syslem. The man's hat was raised punctiliously, but somewhere some druu
ken husband was healing bis wifc,
some loafer was living on his wife's
bard work ami savings. Thc woman
was so sanctified that she must be
protected from the arduous and dan-
igcrotis labor of making a cross on a
ballot; but she could scrub a floor. In
this delicate feminine task of floor,
washing she went down on her knees,
thereby offering a curious resemblance to the old-fashioned gallant
lover proposing marriage. ll may
have happened that the lover went
down on bis knees before marriage
and the wife afterwards.
The occasion of the Times' articles,
of course, is the part taken by women
in the present war. Women havc
been seen running omnibuses, and
working in munition factories. Truly
an amazing spectacle, calculated to
win men ovcr to woman's suffrage!
The danger, and the toil, and the
drudgery and the anxiety connected
with bringing up a family counted
for nothing. But during the war it
has been discovered that women arc
capable of doing hard work. Sa pos
sibly they may win thc suffrage. Thc
woman omnibus conductor lias done
in a few months what the poor toiler
it the needle and thc washtub could
not do in centuries. -Toronto Star.
Clothing Prices to Ascend Now
Shortage of 200,000,000 pounds of
wool confronts the clothiers of America, and unless sheep raisers in
that continent get busy at once,
winters arc going to bc colder for
millions of persons who cannot meet
higher prices, dealers declared in
New York. Thc increasing difficulty
of getting wool from abroad, and the
amazing shortage of the product in
this country is expected to cause a
rise in the prices of woolen goods
which will bc unparalleled.
Kitchener's Sound Vision
Kitchener had to make one of the
hardest choices in history. . .
Nine soldiers in ten would have play
cd for momentary results. They
would have burled into France every
fully trained man. They would have
packed off half-trained territorials
after a month's hardening in camp
They would havc left lhc future to
take care of itself. Lord Kitchener,
in rejecting the lure of prompt vie
tory, showed the sounder estimate of
the enemy's resources and capacity,
His decision, a simple, intuitive,
was the hardest and most momentous
act of will which any general in Europe has taken since thc Kaiser declared war. There was bigness and
vision in that man, and thc world
must move against its wish to the
slow rhythm of his thought. ��� The

Life of (ireat Units
The Life of Modern Artillery Pieces
Is Comparatively Short
The life of a gun depends upon the
progress of erosion, which Booncr or
later is certain to impair the accuracy of lire, according to Iron Age.
Erosion is caused by the action of ibe
explosive gases at high temperature
and pressure, The hot gases cause a
thin lilin of steel to absorb heal. The
film expands and becomes set. Upon
the release of lhc pressure il contracts, which causes minute cracks
that grow larger with every discharge. As they Increase in size lhcy
form passageways for more, hot gas,
and that tends to enlarge tiiciu still
further. The inner surface thus becomes roughened and the bore begins
lo corrode. Finally, lhe bore becomes
so enlarged that it allows lhe gases
to escape, The shell (hies not Ihen
acquire its proper rotation, and ils
flight becomes erratic,
All guns except small ones arc now
constructed with linings in the lube,
which, when the bore is worn out, arc
removed and replaced by new ones.
The cosl of rclining a gun is approximately thirty per cent, of lhc cost of
the. gun. There appears lo be no
limit lo the number of times that a
gun can be. relincd, 'The small arms
used in the United Stales arc considered to bc worn out after 5,000
to 7,500 rounds have been fired.
Small naval guns can bc lired aboul
1,000 limes before they arc regarded
as worn out. Large twelve-inch mil
fourtecn-inch naval guns are considered to have a life, on onc lining, of
from 150 to 200 rounds. Low velocity
guns, such as howitzers and mortars,
havc correspondingly longer lives
than high velocity gnus of the same
calibre, because the pressure they
develop, and hence thc temperatures,
arc lower.
No Chapter in thc History of National Friendships Has Held
Greater Stories Than That Which Records thc Reckless
Sacrifices of Our Allies During thc Early
Period of thc War
Africa a Virgin Land
Development of North African Empire Expected After the War
When the war in Europe shall have
ended, the first great question which
peace will bring is that of a food
supply for the nations pauperized by
battles. There will bc an immediate
necessity for virgin lauds from which
huge crops may bc taken at small
cost, and with it will come thc need
for new sources of wealth of every
sort, says the "World Outlook."
There can bc no doubt but that Europe knows where they arc to bc
found. Unquestionably one of lhc
causes of the present war was the
need for richer fields for development. France, and England, particularly France, had found them. France
had looked across the Mediterranean
and had found at the very doorway
of Europe the making of a great
North African Empire. England had
looked and found Egypt. Italy had
looked and regained Tripoli for the
Roman stale.
Peace eventually would have resulted in the development of North
Africa, but this war will equal a century of peace in lhat respect. Bandaged Europe, turning ils empty
pockets inside out, will cross the
Mediterranean and thc North African empire will cease to bc a drca.n
and will become a reality.
"I think that we shall never be the
same people again," said Mr, Hughes,
! answering the lirsl note of his welcome home, Australians may think
with him, and hope with him, that
wc shall not, Wc laughed In thc sun
and followed our prosperous    paths
) with cheerful and childlike arrogance.
Thc lirsl of our men ran bravely,
even gayly, to the great game of war,
hearing the. trumpets and not the
groans, seeing the waving banners
and not thc stricken fields, Thc
knowledge and the pain of long endurance, sorrow and suffering have
come lo us since thru. Surely no
man in this counlry, aloof from war
yet redly streaked by war's long lingers, can look back ovcr two years
without a sudden flood of almost
ashamed gratitude for what other
countries have done for it. When
the news of war broke upon us two
years ago, there were few indeed
who looked forward to this time as
only thc glimmering dawn of the
day of release. Britain was to bc the
avenger. Her might, though long
unused, would spring at once to fullest life and crush the despoilrrs of
Belgium and the ravishcrs of France,
Those first black weeks left us gasping and sweating as from a nightmare, Confidence seemed on point
of giving way to terrible foreboding.
Then the fulfilment of Joffrc's bravely patient plans brought a (lush of
hope, and after that wc settled down
to his grim nibblings,
In thc long and imdcciding months
which followed we comprehended
morc and more distinctly    how    we
I wcrc dependent   upon   strength Ollt-
I side our own. No chapter in the history of national friendships has held
greater stories than that which records the reckless sacrifices of Kussia
for her allies' sake. She thrust an
army lancclikc into Prussia���it was
too slenderly supported to be called
a wedge���with the one purpose of
lessening the terrible hammering on
our weak lines in the west. The cost
ly relreat of ths.t army, involving the
withdrawal of a line stretching north
and south half across Europe never
shook for a moment Russia's sacri-
fical loyalty. Belgium and Serbia
have been destroyed, .'ranee has been
bled fearfully, great wounds have
been lorn in the vast territory of
Russia and Italy has flung millions
in men and money into the whirlpool
of war. Each of these nations has
been drawn by necessity or policy
into the struggle. While that fact is
plain enough, wc will not attempt
meanly to di=guise from ourselves the
circumstance that their warring has
achieved our preservation. Not Britain, nor any of the great nations now
linked with her, could have withstood
singly the fell preparations of the
Now, in our own countries, a great
measure of strength and order has
been wrought out of military nothingness. Though Kitchener has gone,
his work remains. We believe that
we scc victory ahead of us, but we
scc, too, the pitiful price that has yet
lo be paid. Slowly we have dragged
ourselves, through many little discords, to unity. It is our turn and
our chance to repay our great and
gallant friends. To this end Britain
herself has given all. Her dominions
have given much. To say that Aus-
tlaia could yet give more is not to
decry the nobleness and unselfishness
of hundreds oi thousands of brave
men, Individual sacrifices hive b��a
innumerable and wonderful. Britain,
in calling upon every fit man to serve
'his turn, lias made, as a nation, the
I supreme sacrifice, and paid her _o_-
| est debt to the men who first stood
i to arms. And we���alas, we ar: laggards!���Sydney Sun.

The Voting Age
In   Many   European   Countries   the
Voter Has More Restrictions
Than Here
Anywhere in North America onc
must have lived 21 years before hc
can vote. Not so in many other
The 11 un votes at 20, but the Austrian in the oilier half of the empire
must bc 24. Prussians cannot vote
until they arc 25 years old, and that
is the minimum age limit in a number
of German states.
Twenty-five is also the age in Holland, Belgium and Japan. Denmark
is a believer in the wisdom that comes
with age, hence no onc there under
30 can vote. English-speaking races
vote at 21.
In many Countries soldiers are disfranchised, and under the Portuguese
law no domestic servant or government employe had a ballot.
Sam Salter never lived in Belgium,
and yet lhat country lias a peculiar
system of multiple voting. College
graduates, for example, have three
voles, and so do many others who fulfill property requirements.
About 300,000 Belgians have each
three votes and more than that number have two voles. Failure to vole
in Belgium is punishable as a misdemeanor.��� Philadelphia Public Ledger.

llie manner in which Paul Tayne
received this announcement concerning the detective who was hanging
about the grounds of Oare Court
Struck a blow to Lord Eastling.
Although lie knew a good deal, and
suspected much more, about the lawless doings of his brother-in-law in
the past, the young man had hoped
against hope that 1'aul -was now, as
lie would have put it, "running
straight," and that he was showing
at least so much respect to the noble
woman he had married as to keep
away from questionable dealings
now that hc was connected by marriage with an honorable family.
Lord Eastling, favorably impressed from the outset by the manners
and good temper of Paul Payne, had
always been generous in his views of
him, and had wished, as much for the
man's sake as for Lady Ursula's,
that he would live down his past bad
record and prove himself at least apparently worthy of the family inlo
which he had married, as an offset
against his repudiation by the family
into which he was born.
But the events of (lie past few days
had shattered that hope, and Paul's
sudden change of color on hearing
about the detective in the grounds
had made it impossible to doubt thai
lie was still acting in concert with
thh ves.
Of course, Paul recovered his self-
possession immediately, and affected
lu be much amused by lhc solemn
warning thus given.
"That's awfully interesting by
Jove!" said he as be opened the door.
"I'.isls always arc exciting to hear
about, aren't they, when they belong
to other people?"
Willi these words he left his brother-in-law, and let himself inlo the
room where Brady Gane was wailing.

Brady, who was fidgeting about
impatiently, lingering everything in
the room, apparently with the object
of discovering something which it
would bc worth while to carry off,
dropped the volume bound in red
morocco, which be bad been turning
lover, and drew himself up. "Well,
Where's the stuff?" asked he quickly.
Paul shook llis head,    ll  was plain
from his looks thai hc had received
a shock, nnd the other stared lit him
"Nothing gone wrong, rh?" said he
in a hoarse whisper. "II il has, Syd, il

Paul made an effort lo recover his
usual calm manner, which impressed
his nervous and fidgety confederates
so much. But the knowledge thai
danger had conic so very close unnerved him, and his ryes wandered
uneasily towards the window as he
"There's a Yard mnn in the
grounds, on the lookout," said be.
"You've been followed, Gane. Vou
must get away as fasl as you can,
and bc sure you tlon'l go straight
back to Kvans. When yon do scc
him, warn him to bc careful,"
But before he had come lo the end
of this speech the expression of the
other man bad altered somewhat,
Prom interested he had become incredulous and impatient.
"Oh, yes, 1 dare say!" said he in a
mocking lone. "We've, had that
game, played on us already. Won't
work the second time, my lord. Not
"What do you mean?" asked Paul,
who, however, knew very well.
"Oh, what I mean, your lordship,
lis as you lold me that when I come
.to'sec you at the hotel. You said as
how there was a fellow on the lookout, and as you couldn't give mc tlie
i stuff because he was ready for to

i like the silly kid I was, let myself bc
kidded, and went away without the
stuff. Lord, how you must have
Paul, seeing lhat he bad a hard
task before him in persuading Gane
to go away quietly without the stones,
sat down in an armchair, crossctj^iis
legs and took out a cigar.
Brady's eyes grew round with indignation.
"Look here," said he, "I'll stand no
nonsense. Go and fetch the stuff, and
share out.   No more larks!'1
"I'm not in the humor for larks,
I assure you. Neither am I in the
humor to be arrested on a charge of
being concerned in stealing valuable
jewellery. And as that is what
would inevitably happen if you were
to go out of the house with ten thousand pounds' worth of stones on you,
I'm obliged to deny your request,
unreasonable as it no doubt seems to
Gane moved impatiently.
"Stow that bunkum!" growled he.
"I wasn't arrested at the hotel when
I was fool enough to listen to you,
and to let myself be gulled into going
away without the pearls you promised us. Well, 1 was had once, but I'm
not having none this lime."
Paul shook his head.
"I can't help that. I sec the point
of your remarks, but the fact that
you escaped search once does not induce mc to think you would escape
a second time, Anyhow, I can't afford to run risks."
"Why not?    1 can."   .
Paul laughed not in a conciliatory
"It's nol quite the. same thing,
What are your risks compared to

Paul drew himself up and spoke
with more emphasis,
"(.    repeat:    what arc your    risks?

Bill I couldn't now; I own it." His
face grew very gra\e, and he looked
out at the trees and lhc lawn and the
misly landscape beyond, instead of at
Gane, as he. went on: "I want lo turn
over a new leaf."
Gane laughed, hoarsely, incredulous
"Well,   turn  away  as   fasl  as   ever
you like.    We shnn'l  slop you,"    lie.
cried mockingly,   "Only, before   you,

"All right. Bul nol now. Listen,!
Gane, I want to know whether you
and Evans will consent to some sort
of a new arrangement. Vou wouldn't get much on the stones, under lhc
circumstances, would you?"
| But Gane's face had Hushed, and
his eyes were protruding.
"No, you don't," cried he with excitement, as he clenched bis iisl and
ground his teeth, and came nearer to
Paul in a threatening attitude. "You
don't play that game on lis, We're
not a-going for to lake a few sovereigns and leave you to go off with

Paul rose from his chair, and his
face assumed thai hard look which
Gane was morc accustomed to in him
than to the. more amiable expression
which he had worn so far lhat morning.
"All righl," he said quietly. "Bluster away. But I'm not going to give
you the stones to carry away today,
as 1 know you wouldn't get away
without being followed, and if you
were, followed you would be caught,
and ii you were caught you'd involve
me. 1 don'l pretend to be acting unselfishly."
"I should think not!" jeered Gane
at a white heat.

This Fertile Area of Canada's Hinterland

The demand for accurate and reliable Information wilh regard to the
Peace Kivcr country is widespread,
and is rapidly becoming more insis-
Icnl. Any effort, therefore, that may

through official sources is both timely ami valuable.
A booklet entiili-,1 "The. Pence

lhis matter deserves lo be brought

Hitherto those who wished to obtain information wiih reference to
this new land have been dependent
on reports ol a more or less fragmentary nature, gathered Irom any source
that happened to bc available, In
compiling authentic information from
reliable sources and publishing il iu
thc form of a handy and attractive,
booklet of fifty pages, the Department has provided a much needed
source of information (or all who are
or who may become interested in llic

While a few pioneer settlers have
from lime- to time penetrated this
portion of Northern**Canada, it has
only been within lhc pasl few years
that it has been possible, to regard
thc grent. Peace River valley as within
the reach of the. Iiomcsceker. The
almost insurmountable difficulty in
taking in supplies nnd machinery and
the corresponding task of marketing

Although but few have explored
this district, many will be surprised
lo learn that    so long ago as  1870
grain from the Peace River captured
ihe trophy in competition with thc
world al the Centennial Exposition
iii Philadelphia.
The booklet deals with all the subjects which naturally suggest themselves to the. average inquirer. Under
llic headings of Agriculture, Timber,
Minerals, Game and Transportation
the pamphlet gives a mass of information. Cllmalc and rainfall are
also dealt with, Numerous extracts
nre given from the. reports of well-
ktiown explorers and scientists who
have visited the country, dating from
the beginning of last century down
lo the present day. There is a concensus o( opinion among these authorities ;o to the adaptability ol the
country lo ihe growth of all grains
nnd root crops. The great amount
of sunshine which obtains in these
northern latitudes renders vegetation
both rapid ami luxuriant.
In llic Peace River district the seasons change very quickly, so that as
soon as the. snow passes the ground

bookkeeping required on a farm dif-
I fers entirely from ordinary bookkeeping. "The primary object of farm cost
accounting," snys Prof. White, "is to
determine what the farm business as
a whole is making or losing each
year, what each department is mak-
ing or losing, aud to give such in-
: formation regarding each a., will enable the owner lo manage his far-n
more intelligently by knowing what
it is costing him to produce."
After dealing in detail with the
whole problem oi farm cost accounts,
Prof. While includes a number of
tables and instructions, such as ho\v
to estimate the number of bushels of

Thousands of thankful mothers
throughout Canada ��� many of them
your own neighbors���speak with the
greatest praise of that splendid medicine, Baby's Own Tablets. Many
mothers would have no other medicine for their little ones. Among
these is Mrs. Albert Nie, St. Bricux,
Sask., who says: "1 have been using
Baby's Own Tablets for the past
seven years and lhcy have done my
four children a world of good. I
would not be without them." Thc
Tablets arc sold by medicine dealers

Once upon a time, only a few
months after this terrible world war
had begun, Private Bailey, a soldier
in the ranks, had slood for days in
the trenches "somewhere in France."
The cold rains soaked Ii iin lo the
skin; the mud was deep. lie. had had
no rest. Weary and aching with
rheumatic pains, he recalled the faith
his mother had in Sloan's Liniment.
Hc asked for it in his next Inter
home. A large bottle was immediately sent him and a few applications
killed the pain, once more he was able
to stand the severe exposure. He
shared this" wonderful muscle-soother
with his comrades, and they all agreed
it was the greatest "reinforcement"
lhat had ever conic to their rescue.

New Banking Device
Multiple Cheque   Is Great   Saver of
Depositor's Time
The multiple check is the latest
banking device to save depositors
trouble. It has becn brought out by
a Boston trust company, and its
chief use is to make it possible for
a depositor to pay all his monthly
bills by drawing one cheque on or
about the first of the month.
The new cheque is precisely like
the old style cheque, except that its
size is much increased to give room
at the bottom for writing a list of
firms, with the sum set opposite
each one which the drawer desires
to pay. These arc added up, and the
cheque for the total, payable to (he
bank, is duly filled out and signed.
That ends the bother of the depositor, for the bank does the rest.
It deposits lhe sums named to the
credit of such payees as happen to
be depositors and remits to thc
The payer may make entry of the
firms and amounts paid on lhc stnb
of the cheque, or he may enter only
the lotal, saving his statements of
account for record.
The plan means more work for lhe
bank and less for the depositor. But
the bank gets its reward, no doubt,
in the satisfaction of the patron and
the consequent attraction of other
The bank cheque is a wonderful
instrument of business. We have become so accustomed to it that we
sometimes fail to appreciate its
daily miracle. The invention of the
multiple cheque shows that the uses
to which cheques may be put have
by no means been exhausted.
