The Squire went off to see Mrs.
Bartlctt. There hnd heen a day when
he and Dolly, cailghl 111 a heavy
shower, had lakeu shelter at Mrs
Bartlett's, They hnd surprised her
with her poor face exposed. Dolly
had been beautifully gentle, and Mrs.
Bartlett had waited on her assiduously���shaking out her damp skirls, wiping the raindrops from her lint and
hair, lighting up a fire and making

of nny one of those who loved Dolly,
Perhaps there \\ns something in the

scornful Dolly had been when he had j
apologized lo her for springing Mrs.
Barllett upon her suddenly. The col

He had lo wr.il long enough outside lhe cottage to become afraid
that Mrs. Bartlctt had gone, ll was
with a sense of relief he heard her
unbolt the door, and followed her
iulo the little sitting room. He sat
down facing her, the light from the
high window on his face; hers iti-lhe
shadow she always sought, her hand
covering her check in an habitual at-;
tempt to hide her disfigurement, As
she sal so, her face partly turned
away from him, her left hand war
under her check. There wns a thin
gold wedding ring upon it. Poor
creature! She had never spoken- to,
liin: of a husband.
Hc unpacked the matter uf his cr
rand without delay.    She heard him

their expression of absolute devotion,

Just think! Van can lift
off any corn or callus
withoul pain or soreness.
A Cincinnati man discovered ttiis ether coin-
pound and named it free-
zone. Any druggist will
sell a tiny bottle of free-
zone, like here shown, for
very little cost, You apply a few drops directly
upon a tender corn or
callus. Instantly the soreness disappears, then
shortly you will find the
corn or callus so loose
that you can lift it right
Freezone is wonderful.
It dries instantly, ll
doesn't eat away the corn
or callus, but shrivels it
up without even irritating
the surrounding skin.
Hard, soft or corns between the toes, as well as
painful calluses, lift right
off. There is no paiu before or afterwards, If your druggist hasn't
freezone, tell liiiii lo order a small
bottle for you from his wholesale
drug house.

Government Helps Dairying-
Dairying Industry   of   Saskatchewan
Put on a Firmer Basis
Until the provincial government
took hold, the. dairying industry of
Saskatchewan declined. In 1006, the
butter output of the pr wince had fallen to 127,000 pounds, whereas in
1897 it had been 346,000 pounds. With
lhe Inauguration of a governnieni
dairy branch, and lhe Institution of
thc co-operative creamery, an entirely different stale of affairs wns
bioughl about. The dairy branch
now operates seventeen co-operatively owned creameries, located at central points on the different railways.
Express charges on thc cream nre
paid at the creamery, so that the farmer at a distance suffers nothing from
the fact that the creamery is nol al
bis own door. The dairy branch
markets lhe product, and distributes
the tolal net profits ro-opcratively
twice a month, Incoming cream is
classified and paid for accordingly,
and outgoing butter i.s graded also
according to quality, Instruction iu
dairying ba-. been given to farmers
by the operation of travelling dairy
instruction cars, as well as llirougli
out the year at lhc creameries and by
ti.ivilliu . instructors. The progress
of the dairying industry will be seen
when it is slated that in 19.6 Ihere
were 17 creameries, with 7,205 farmers sending cream, and lhe production was 2,538,061 pounds of butler,
or more than 15 times as much ns in
Farm Labor Secured
That 6,500 farm laborers were
brought into Western Canada from
the United States during the period
from March 1 to May 3 is the statement of T.M. Molloy, Commissioner of lhe Bureau of Labor; 1,100 of
these wenl to the province of Manitoba, 3,000 to Saskatchewan and 2,300
to Alberta.
Extra Profit from
Selected Cows
Cows ef Good Dairy Type Repay
Cost of Extra Feed
One remarkably satisfactory result of keeping simple daily records
yields of milk and cost of feed, is the
knowledge gained that cows of good
dairy type do repay thc cost of extra feed.
Onc example may he given. Not
far from Sl. Ilyarinllie, Quebec, one
hundred cows produced IO.,K.5i|
pounds of milk more during 1916
than one hundred did in 1915. The
1915 records showed lhat ten wero
not paying so lhcy were beefed, and
again in 1916 eleven were sent to thc
block, being replaced by belter milkers. Heller feeding contributed
largely to the above noted big increase in mild yield; more com waj
fed, more clover and a little higher
meal ration.
The value of llie exlra feed was
$605; lhis produced more milk to the
value of $1,677.66, so that the extra,
clear return was "j1,072.66, and the
cows were in much belter condition.
Dairy records help to select good
cows and lo ensure larger profit.

Conserve Young Cattle
Slaughter of Calves Results in Great
Loss in Meat Production
Wholesale and unnecessary destruction of calves through the country, has influenced W.W. Fraser, recently appointed Live Slock Commissioner for Manitoba, to warn farmers lo conserve thcr young entile,
lie urges them against thoughtless
slaughter of calves, and states that
thousands are destroyed annualy,
with consequent loss in meat production and dairy supplies.
Could the public be bioughl lo realize the astounding loss annually ,.s
a result ol this destruction of calves,
it would startle the most indifferent,
Mr. Fraser states. The possibilities
of a shortage of all food supplies
which is causing already almost famine prices, is alarming.
The Department of Agriculture
working in conjunction with Mr.
Fraser, is taking steps to prolect calves from slaughter, and more especially among the dairies near lhe cily,
where thousands of calves have been
sold to butchers or destroyed as soon
as Ihey were born. An arrangement
is being made hel ween dairymen aud
farmers whereby fanners can secure
calves by paying a nominal charge
price, and similar (o that paid by
butchers, thus preserving a calf that
would be sold for $61 to one wliicli
when two and a half years old would
be worth form $10(1 to $175.
Should co-operation of all persons
concerned be established, the present
waste would bc turned into a food
production increase, with enormous
financial benefit to the counlry, according to Mr. Fraser. Prompt action this year is necessary he stated.
Hc added that they should use the
besl type of sires in order that the
offspring may bc of the besl quality.
Baby's Own Tablets is the ideal
medicine for little ones. Tlicy regulate the bowels and stomach; break
up colds; cure constipation and indigestion; expel worms and make
teething easy. They are guaranteed
to bc absolutely free from injurious
drugs and may bc given lo the
youngest child with perfect safety.
Concerning them Mrs. T.M. Fork-
nail, Mission City, B.C., writes: "1
havc used Baby's Own Tablets for
my three little ones and have found
Ihem lhe best medicine a mother can
give her children." The Tablets arc
sold by medicine dealers or by mail
at 25 cents a box from The Dr, Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville,

according to a report based on an

1913. The average age of death
among bookkeepers and clerks was
thirty-six years, and among fanners
fifty-eight years. Tuberculosis causer! thirty-five per cent, of the deaths

Aerial Progress
Remarkable Development in Aircraft
in the Past Nine Years
The great progress made in the development of aircraft in the last nine
years was llie subject of a recent lecture in London. In 1908 the Wright
brothers flew at a rate of 35 miles an
hour, while at the end of last year
a speed of 142 miles an hour was attained hy a Sopwith monoplane. The
farthest distance flown by the
Wrights in 1908 was 7 1-2 miles; the
other day a Frenchman came near
flying from Verdun to Russia (984
miles). The Wrights in 1908 reached
an altitude of 500 feet; both a
Frenchman and au Englishman had
recently ascended to over 25,000 feet.:
The rate of ascent in 1909 by a
Frenchman was 300 feet iu !. minutes!
an aviator in England recently ascended 10,000 feet in 15 minutes, lhc
lirst 5,000 in five minutes, which was
equal lo thc ascent of the fastest lift.
Once they found difficulty in carrying
a -ingle passenger; now the largest
machines take a crew of sixteen and
a load of a ton and a half.

Difficult to Land Well
The most difficult part of flying
is landing. In fact, according to high
authorities in the British Flying
Corps, nearly the whole art oi flying
lies in landing and a man who can
laud well under any conditions will
be able to do anything else in the
air on his own initiative, given a
sound nerve. Nothing but experience
makes it possible to land almost
anywhere in a had country with the
engines stopped dead, and to drop
down faultlessly on to a strange
landing place without any indication as to the direction of the wind
or lhe slope of the ground.

Note and Comment
Eighty-nine years ago the corner-stone of the pioneer railroad,
the Baltimore & Ohio, was laid at
Baltimore with imposing ceremonies. This line, like early roads.
���was built of wooden rails, fastened
to crossties of wo id or stone buried
the ground. Flat bars of ir.jn were
spiked spiked on the rails. This
method was found to be dangerous
owing to the loosening o' the rails
which often bent upwards and
crashed through the bottom of
the car, so that the pa.seugers
never knew at what uitii. nt they
might be Impaled like flies ou n
pin, About four years later, July
4, 1832. six miles of Baltimore &
Susquehanna Railroad were opened
to travel, The cars were drawn
by horses, but in the following
year steam engines  were adopted.
Good roads have a money value
far beyond our oniin_ry conception
says, S. R, Henderson, President of
Manitoba Good Roads Associotion.
Bad roads constitute our greatest
drawback to internal development
and material progress. Good roads
mean prosperous farmers bad roads
mean abandoned farms, sparsely
settled country district and congested cities, when the poor become
poorer. Pood roads mean more
cultivated farms ami cheaper fond
products. Bad roads mean poor
transportation, lack of communication, high prices for the necessities of life, loss of untold millions
and idle workmen. Good roads
will help those who cultivate the
soil. Wh itever aid the producers
and farmers give will increase our
wealth and cur greatness and benefit all the people,
The ecooomic value of ihe bacon
hog on the llritish market is an
important topic. ..cording to Mr.
Duncan Anderson, who lias been
talking to the public for many
years 011 this topic, the farmers of
Ontario began to change from the
thick fat to the bacon type of hog
about twenty years ago. During
the next eight years as a result of
that change, an export trade to
Kngland in bacon and ham wns
developed to the extent of fifteen
million dollars a year. What is
needed is that a clear knowledge of
the situation be propigated am vug
the farmers, so that the best type
of bacon hog be produce 1, that the
bacon be prepared and preserved in

The average man can easily afford
a Ford car. It is the most inexpensive car to drive,
20 to 25 miles on a gallon of
gasoline is an everyday occurence.
33 miles is frequently reported by
Ford owners, Yearly repair expenses of less than one dollar are
not unusual. The car is light in
weight, and tires  give more mile
age on a Ford  than on  anv other
You can buy a Ford for yourself
and one for your wife for the price

Need the Rich, Red Blood Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Actually
Thin-blooded people do nol remain
so from choice but from indifference,
in some cases from despair. I'eople
who arc pale, languid, with palpitation of the heart, some difficulty ill
breathing and a tendency to bc easily
tired arc suffering from thin blood.
They need only the resolution to take
the righl trcatmenl and slick lo il until cured. Thc remedy that can be
relied upon is Dr. Williams' l'ink
I'ills for Pale People. With every
dose they make new blood, and new
blood means health and strength.
The red cheeks, good appetite, increased weight and strength that follow the use of these pills prove Iheir
great value to lliin-bloodcd people.
Here is an example: Mrs. J. McDonald, Jr., Hay, Out., says: "I honestly
believe Dr. Williams' l'ink I'ills saved my life. Some years ago 1 had
anaemia, and as 1 did not realize the
seriousness of thc trouble 1 soon became a complete wreck. 1 got so
weak 1 could hardly walk. I neither
ate nor slept well, and could not go
up stairs without stopping to rest. Al
times 1 had an almost unbearable pain
in my back and would have lo remain
in bed. 1 suffered alniosl constantly
from a (lull headache, and when
sweeping" if I would stoop to pick up
anything I would gel so dizzy that I
would have to catch hold of something to keep from falling. At times
my heart would beal so fast that 1
would have a smothering sensation.
My eyes wen sunken and my hands
and limbs would bc swollen iu the
mornings. I tried several kinds of
medicine without benefit and my
friends thought I would not recover,
'ihen 1 began taking Dr. Williams'
l'ink I'ills, and belore long could see
and feel  that   they  were helping me.
1 gladly continued the use ot the pills,
uniil I wns completely cured and Ii
cannot say enough in their praise,
and I strongly recommend Ihein lo
all  run down girls and women."
You can get these pills through

When Lord Norlhcliffe writes for

is doing a good work in lhc Uniled

hotels; hc.was burned lu effigy, and
was for a few weeks competitor of
Hindenburg for lhe prize of the best-
haled man in England. Events proved that his criticism of the Brilish
administration was right. His papers

had been well-founded. Suggestions

lie looks for a long war. He says
that the three great events of the. war
to dale have been the wonderful defence put up by France, thc entrance
of live Britisii nations inlo lhe war
on the side of England���Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the minor
colonics and India���and the slow
arousing of the United Stales and ils
entry into thc fray. Hc says iu reference to ihc submarine campaign,
lhat in Kngland tlicy do not take il
seriously enough, and that in the
Uniled Stales they take it loo seri-
Olisly. He contends that the submarine cannot win lhc war. He compares il with the thrust upon Calais
and the attack upon Paris. Thev
were, in his opinion, mere secondary
thoughts, devised afler the grand
plan ot the German army had failed.
The grand plan was lhe capture of
Lord Xorlhcliffc says that the waits jusl one of a series of wars. The
submarine campaign he considers a
mere phase, and he docs not believe
that ii eau achieve anything. Already
it lias produced a revolution in Russia, an upheaval compared with
which the French revolution was a
Ire.nor. He believes lhat other upheavals will follow and thai revolutions will continue Jo accompany the
war lo lhe end. In his vii SV it is
impossible to conduct such a tremendous and long-sustained war
wilhoui political revolutions in most
of the belligerent countries. He believes, too, what most of us believe,
tl nt one of the results of the struggle
will be an improvement iu Ihe condition of the working classes. They
will be contented no longer to accept
tlie wages thai v-ere offered ihem before the war. Ihey will demand

His arihle is entitled "How lhc
World Shall Kill lis Prussian Cobra," and he asks his readers to imagine that the allies are dealing with
n cobra, or, in other words, wilh a
slate that will spare no effort lo gain
its point. A few days ago lhc Queen
of Greece said lhat her brother was
fighling for his dynasty. In the light
lie has with him the ruling classes
of Germany. They feel that they are
fighling for their lives. When a cobra
is lighting for its life it is idle lo suppose that il will take inlo-account
any rules of the game. The recent
German order that all hospital ships
will bc sunk is an illustration of the
point raised by Lord Northcliffe. \\ e

irony, will be last to know that tlio

There is a strong belief in England that restoration of Palestine to
(lie Jews would be a profitable polit
leal undertaking for the Brilish.
"It is not expected," said Mr.
Zangwill, "thai all lhe Jews of tho
woild would Hock there to mako
their homes. It is my belief that tlio
Jewish agriculturalists who lind living
difficult elsewhere, should bc aided to
return and that they should form
lhe basis of the new nation. Jerusalem's location might make it the si e
for a great commercial or trading
cily, but thc important thing is not
to draw there those who have prospered in other corners of the globe,
but to care for the great numbers o:
oppressed in other lands.
"With a Jewish nation established,
the Jews everywhere would feel they
luu c a home again, whether or not
circumstances permitted them to Ine
there themselves,"
Zangwill won the support of Joseph Chamberlain and Winston
Churchill to his colonization schenu
before thc war, but South Africa,
Canada and Australia opposed it in
luni. A Jewish nation in Palestine
is another matter.
The menace which Turkish possession of Palestine offers Kgypt and
the tirade route to India must bc removed, Brilish statesmen agree. Er-
en before the war many considered
lhc recreation of the Jewishi state
lhc best solution. Opinion changed,
however, during lhe war, largely be-
iiausc of the sympathy many Jews of
German origin in America admitted
fur Germany. It was feared that a
nation sympathetic toward Germany
would be a dangerous one to have
so close lo this strategic link in the
1'iitish  Empire.
The Russian revolution has changed this. Jewish sympathy, alienated
by the treatment of the Jews in Russia under the old regime, hai been
warn back by the new regime. Jacob
Schiff's declaration for the Alii-:',
following the announcement by t':_
provisional government of equal
rights for the Jews in Russia, waj
not lhe only one to come to the attrition of Ihe British government. A
Jewish slate in Palestine now would
in- a friendly, even grateful state, it
is believed.
Zangwill's idea of an Americas
protectorate is based on the desire
that Jewish interests should be protected by a great power that had no
interest there to serve. Whether
such a protectorate would appeal to
British statesmen is doubtful. It is
more likely that in case a Jewish nation is set up, Great Britain herself
will garrison the country until law
and order and the stability of the
new  government is  assured.
