Hon. T. A. Crerar, .Minister of Agriculture, has sent out the following
message to Canadian farmers, asking
Ihem, in order to avert famine, to
plant every possible acre in wheat:
"Let me again draw th attention of
the farmers of Canada to the great
need there is of planting evrey acre
of land iu wheat that seems favorable
to growing It. The news that comes
daily of thnt awful, grim struggle now
being fought in France and Flanders
brings home to us clearly and unmistakably lhis fact, that, after almost
four yenrs' war, human liberty ls still
in the balance. The call for men is
urgent, and they must, to the full
limit of our power, be sent. Their
places at home must be taken by
those who remain. Despite the difficulties, we must produce more food
than we have ever done before. Set
apart all your land fit for growing
crops and plant as much wheat as
yol can. Plan to bring as much new
land on your farm under cultivation
as possible, and thus increase your
ncreage for ���next year. It will be
needed then just as much as now."
Baron  Rhondda's  Message to Canada
"Germany hopes first to starve the
Old Country by the submnrlne campaign, and then to smash her land
forces. He has failed to starve us,
and he will fail to smash us, but we
cannot, achieve victory without food.
There never was a time when it was
more needed. The Canadian farmer
now has lhe opportunity lo make an
effective reply In th enemy's pressing
onslaughts by lending their undivided energies lo the Increased production of foodstuffs."

to understand Carmen better. Carmen hati charm and knew how to

drove him across the moors to

When they ran out of llie hills
Hawick, rain was fulling and the vi
ley lilled with smoke haze, through
which loomed factories and chimney
stacks. Thc station was crowded
and Foster gathered frmn the tall;
of tlie people who got in that a big
wool sale was going on and the
townsfolk who were not at the auction made it a holiday. His compartment was full, but lookiiq
through the window he saw a fashionably dressed girl hurrying along
tlie platform with a porter. Thej

there seemed to be no room, and tin
guard had blown Lis whistle when
lhcy came abreast of Foster's compartment. Opening the door as the
train began to move he held out hii
hand and pulled the girl in.
"My bag; it mustn't bc left!" she
cried, trying to get back to the door,
but Foster caught the bag as the porter held it tip and put it on the rack.
"There's a scat in the corner," lie
saitl and went into the corridor.
When they stopped at Galashiels a
number of people got out, and he returned to the compartment. It was
now unoccupied except by an old
man antl thc girl hr had helped, who
gave liim a, grateful smile.
"1 hadn't'time to thank you, but 1
should have missed the train if-yon
had not been prompt," she saitl.
Foster did not know if Scottish
etiquette warranted anything more

ventured to remark: "Vou certainly

agreed. "Hawick's gey thrang at

Foster liked to talk to strangers
and as the girl had not rebuffed him,
he took lier cloak, which looked very
wel, from the rack. ,,
"Perhaps I'd Letter shake this i'i
the corridor and then wc can hang it
Up," he said.
She allowed liim to do so and the
old man remarked; "Guid gear's
worth the saving, and I was thinking
t would hc mine the waur o' a bit

"Any kind of gear's worth taking

"That's true," agreed lhe other.
'A vi-rra praiseworthy sentiment if
,'C practise it. But i wouldna1 say

"In a sense, I'm a Canadian, but
from what I've seen of the Ontario
Scots the difference isn't very inark-
d," Foster rejoined. "Anyhow,
they don't buy new material until
lite old's worn out."
The man chuckled, uui Foster
thought llie girl looked interested.

site asked by and by.

The Callous Pacifist
I Usually    Defends    Hun    Brutalities
! Indirectly
Tliere is a coldly savage indifference in the self-styled "pacifist" who
attempts to halt the war to make
peace and liberty possible in the
world, for he would rather see whole
populations suffering in German
slavery llian see them defend Ihein
stives with arms. It is this strange
callousness to suffering which sooner or later, and often unconsciously,
betrays thc "pacifist" iut*�� pro-Germanism; there is au affinity between
Iiis cruel willingness to see people
suffer withoul striking back and the
brutality of the German who wishes
In strike the helpless. 'Tlie sn-ralled
"pacifist" usually defends the Hermans indirectly by trying to make

How Old England Treats the United
States Soldiers
Whether wc arc all of Brilish origin or nol, it is the mind that makes
the true patriot; and there is no
American so dead ns not lo feci a
thrill when he first sets foot on British soil, Our school teachers felt it
when they began to travel some
twenty years ago, and the thousands
of our soldiers who pass through on
their way to France arc feeling it today, and writing home alout it. Our
soldiers and sailors are being cared
for and entertained in Kngland just
as they -would bc cared for and entertained at home. So arc their officers. Not long ago one of the finest
town houses in London was donated
by the owner for an American officers' club, the funds were raised by
contributions from British officers,
and the club was inaugurated by the
King and Queen���and Admiral Sims.
Hospitality and good-will have gone
luiicli farther than this. Any one
who knows London will understand
thc sacrcdncss of these private
squares, surrounded by proprietary
residences, where every tree antl every blade of grass lias been jealously
guarded from intrusion for a century
or more. And of all these squares
that of St. James's is perhaps the
mosl exclusive, and yet it is precisely in St. James's tliere is to be built
the first of those hotels designed primarily for the benefit of American
officers, where llicy can get a good
room for five shillings a night and
breakfast at a reasonable price, fine

prices of certain hostclries to appreciate the value of this. ��� Winston

In Neutral Holland
Looking Forward to Day When Military Caste of Germany Will
Be Swept Away
"Why is the Oerman not loved
more warmly by bis Dutch cousins?"
asked a wiiter iu a German newspaper a few days ago. The editor of
tlie Handelsblad takes thc part of a
canditl friend in a reply printed as an
"First of all," he says, "thc dislike
of all foreigners prevails everywhere
among thc mass of the Dutch people, because they fed foreigners to
bc different. Therefore the Dutch
masses dislike Germans, Belgians
and Englishmen. But Germany before thc war was always holding a
loaded revolver to our breast, her
contempt for Holland's military
power,, her thirst for expansion, her
wish to try her gigantic and remarkable war machine, were very real
dangers. The fear of German militarism was very great, while Lug-
land and- France gave us no such
"Then came the invasion of Belgium. This roused not merely pity
for a small neutral nation like IJcl-
giutu, whose women and children
came weeping and hungry, whose
towns and villages wcrc seen burning across the frontier. Few people
will admit that the invasion of Belgium was necessary for the defense
uf the German frontier, and if the
Invasion had not taken place the
war would have been ovcr long ago.
Even supposing lhat the excuse of
necessity was legitimate, it would
justify a devastation of Holland tomorrow, for Germany's love of justice and her respect for Dutch freedom and independence arc very poor
"The Germans blame the English
and American governments for putting pressure on Holland, but about
the assassination by torpedo of
Dntrh ships, about the destruction
of harmless neutral fish craft they
havc. nothing to say."
Thc writer concludes with a state-
ment that, in spile cl this, there lias
been recently a certain change iu
opinion in Holland toward Germany,
not an increased love ior Gcrmay,
but a lessened fear of ber. This, he
says, is due to the fail that Germany

tlie growing democracy of Germany

caste and promote international

Proved Once More
In Southampton, Ont.
Harold D. Bertram Had Inflammatory Rheumatism and One Boi: of
Dodd's Kidney Pills Cleared It
Out of His System.
Southampton, Ont., (Special)���
That rheumatism is caused by disordered kidneys and that Dodd's
Kidney Pills will cure it is again
proved by the case of Harold D.
Bertram, a young man well snd favorably known here. Hc had inflammatory rheumatism for two months.
Dodd's Kidney Pills cured him.
"The doctor said my trouble started with the grippe," Mr. Bertram
states. "My hands and feet wcrc
badly swollen and the doctor did not
seem to be doing me any good. My
grandmother, Mrs, (j. Grasscr, advised me to take Dodd's Kidney
I'ills. I took one box of them and
I haven't becn bothered since. I am
clear of the rheumatism."
That Mr. Bertram's trouble came
from his kidneys is shown by his
other symptoms. He had stiffness in
the joints, was tired and nervous,
and there were Hashes of light before his eyes. He hail a dragging
sensation across tlie loins, was always thirsty and felt heavy and
sleepy after meals.
Rheumatism is caused by uric acid
in the blood. Cured kidneys strain
thc uric acid out of the blood. Dodd's
Kidney I'ills cure the kidneys.

Can Regain Good   Health   Through
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
llliiotllcssness is the trouble of
many girls who ought to be full of
life, and gootl spirits. Instead tlicy
arc pale, their lips have no color,
they have no appetites, tlicir digestion is poor, and if they walk fast,
cither in thc street or going up stairs
llicy arc so tired and out of breath
that their hearts beat as if to burst.
Almost always such girls arc thin,
(lat-chestcd and sallow, with nothing attractive about them. If they
do not get better they will have a
cough in thc winter and then, not
unlikely, consumption, that most
hopeless of all diseases will develop,
No girl should bc like this. She
should bo plump, rosy-cheeked and
full of life, able to talk fast and lo
stand exertion without being breathless and palpitating. To bc in this
healthy, happy condition she must
have plenty of good, rich, red blood
as it is only through the blood that
the body can be healthy. And the
only medicine that will keep the
blood supply rich and retl and pure
is Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills, Their
effect upon the pale, weak girl who
gives them a fair trial is wonderful.
They improve thc appetite, back
aches and headaches disappear, the
glow of health tinges the checks, the
eyes sparkle, ami the step becomes
light and clastic Thousands of
girls throughout Canada owe their
health and attractive appearance to
Dr. Williams' l'ink Tills and do not
hesitate to say so. Miss Jennie
Hook, Bcamsville, Out., says:���"I
suffered for over two years from
anaemia, and gradually grew very
ill. Previously I had been strong
and robust, but grew pale and a
mere shadow of my former self I
tried several medicines, and while
some seemed to give mc temporary
relief, I soon grew worse again. As
the months went by I began to despair of getting better, when my
mother happened to read an advertisement of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and suggested that I should try
them. Ky lhc time thc first box was
finished I knew they were helping
me, and I continued the pills for
nearly three months, using in all
nine boxes, when I was restored in
evc.ry respect to my old time
strength. Tliis was several ycar3
ago, and as I have not since had
any return of the trouble, I cannot
sptri-.k too highly of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills as a permanent cure for
tliis trouble, and I strongly recommend them to all anaemic girls."
You can get these pills through
any medicine dealer or by mail at
50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50
from The Dr. Williams' Medicine
Co., BrockviUc, Ont.

The Telephone and
Its Part
Speaking of lhe great telephone system of the United States,
Theodore Vail said:   "Its essential feature Is preparedness."
Just think how this applies even In British Columbia: Whenever you want-to telephone, you will llnd it ready for you; should
interruption occur to the service It is soon removed; day In, day
out, night and at all times, you can talk near or far, The great
co-operative factor is the supervising force behind  tho scenes.
"The essenlial characteristic of Ihe telephone is service."

In days gone by the Zulus were
the boldest fighters among all the natives of South Africa, and It was not
until tbey had been defeated in soy*
eral battles that they would live tn'
peace with white people. {
In 1818 15,000 of the Zulus attacked
Ud killed a regiment of British sol- !
diers, and a most heroie deed was tha
attempt made by three British sol.
diers to save tbe two flags, or colore,
belonging to the regiment
When It was Keen tbat the Zulus
���were so many that there waa no bop*
of keeping them at bay the colonel of
the British regiment called to a ycing
officer whose name waa Lieutenant
Melvlll and said. "You will take
charge of tbe colors, Melrlll, and try
to get away from" here."
The lieutenant saluted and took Into
bla hands the two color* of his regt*
ment. Then, with another officer and
��� soldier, all mounted on horses, he
suddenly dashed away with his pro.
ttous burden.
They were at once seen by the keen
lighted Zulus, however, and after ���
long chase the three gallant Englishmen, fighting to tbe last, were killed
by the enemy.
Some time afterward om of the flags
waa found near a rocky stream, where
tho her��M bad fought and died, and
K was taken tn England and presented
ta Q-~-oo Vloturl*.

Wonders of Surgery
New Glass Kyes  That   Can   Move
and Wink
A Hriiish army surgeon describes
au improved glass rye which can
move. The chief drawback to the
ordinary glass eye is that, being
simply a convex shell of glass, it
lends to sink back into tlie socket
and is fixed in a stony stare. The
new* device gels over these difficulties by placing in the socket of the
eye a sphere of living cartilage or
gristle taken without risk from the
patient's ribs. It is all one operation.
While one surgeon removes the
j destroyed eye, another surgeon re-
I moves the pieces of cartilage from
near the patient's breastbone. Two
pieces are made into a little globe,
which is placed in ihc socket, and
lhc thin outer covering of the eye,
ihe conjunctiva, is sewn over to hold
it in place. The ordinary glass eye
shell is inserted over this and is prevented from sinking- backward. Sonic
movements of the eye by the wearer
is said to bc possible.���San Francisco Argonaut,

cnlhal, au Alsatian by birth, who has
been mayor of Colmar for nine
years and who has represented
Strassbnrg in the Reichstag. Thc
sentences, of course, have been imposed upon liiiii by the Qerman government, as the introduction puis it,
"because he escaped from the empire to tell the world the trulli about
Alsace-Lorraine; and the book is
"Alsace-Lorraine," in which he sets
out the relations of the two provinces to France and to Germany, respectively, and contends that "llicrc

A New Wheat
'i'he Central Dominion Experimental Farm, to which we already
owe Marquis and Prelude wheats,
has, under the direction of Dr.
Charles 12. .Saunders, produced, another new variety, Ruby, This new
wheat possesses characteristics in
ripening and other qualities midway
between Marquis ami Prelude. It is
beardless, possesses hard red kernels, gives a fair yield, and tftrrttcs
Hour of the highest quality in regard
to color and strength, liread made
from it ranks in the first class. This
wheat is the result of a cross between Downy Riga and l.ed Pifc.
Ruby Is, however, recommended
only where Marquis will not ripen.

The Country Store
IN the evening, when the day's work
is done, men like to stroll over to
the village store to discuss the war,
politics, or whatever may be of local
It is under these circumstances that
the health of the family is referred to
and experiences are interchanged in
regard to medicines that have proven
particularly effective.
After Dr. Chase had introduced his
medicines to the druggists he found
that manv who wrote to him for treatment lived many miles from doctor or
druggist, and had to depend on tho
country store for their medicines. Thus
it came about that Dr. Chase's medicines were placed in general stores, and
you can now obtain them wherever

Ml, Raymond Rccottly, in i.e. Fig-
aro ol Paris, -.indies this question
from the point of view of his personal experiences In Kussia last year,
when lie crossed the country twice.
lie says:
"In the central and southern pro-1
vlnces of Kussia there is no question that there arc huge stories of
grain not far behind the fighting
front. The Russian peasants have
not sold their harvests since the beginning of thc war lo any large extent, for as thc war has been prolonged and llic life of the people
has become more and more disorganized, thc dislike of the peasants
lo sell their slocks has increased.
"ihis is because the peasant's harvest represents to hint a real value
while all bc has been offered in exchange has been paper money, constantly depreciating in value, with
which be has been unable to buy any
of the things of which he has been
so much in need, such as clothes,
shoes and agricultural implements.
H he can't buy anything with the
money he gels, why should he sell
Iiis grain? That is the way lie argues.
"To this must be added the crisis
in transportation, the difficulty in
moving from place, to place the grain
when it is sold. Last year I crossed
Russia twice, thc first time to go to
lhc Caucasus and the second time to
Roumania. In certain railroad bur-
nets at Petrograd, for c .ample, there
was no bread, or, at least, it was a
bard, black bread, almost uneatable.
A hundred kilometres further along
thc peasants wore offering whole
baskets full of sweet, white bread
for a few pennies. The same ihing
was true all Over Russia���starvation
in onc place and plethora next door,
"ln what position wil! the Germans and Austrian* find themselves
with regard to the Russian peasants?
The disorganization of the railroads
is worse now than it was a year ago.
The Germans are confronted with
great difficulties in their own transportation system, and lhcy cannot
work miracles. They arc in no position to remedy the Russian troubles,
for the thing they lack most is material���rolling slock���and rolling
slock is as much lacking in Germany
as Russia. Thc question of transportation will be, therefore, as great
an obstacle lor thc Germans at present ns it has been heretofore for
tin- Russians themselves.
"Moreover, Ihe peasant who refused to sell his grain for Russian paper
money will be in no more liasle to
sell it for paper bearing the kaiser's
effigy.. Kaiser or czar, it is always
paper, and he wants goods���ciolhes
and slioes���and the German, who has
neither for himself cannot supply the
Russian. Perhaps the German will
bc able to supply agricultural iuiple
inenls, needles, knives, scissors and
such small objects, but the possibilities id the traffic are very limited,
llcncc it is not probable Germany
will be able lo get a great amount
of grain from Russia for t''C present
unless she resorts to commandeering.
"Germany suffers from a lack of
war materials as well as front a lack
of foodstuffs. She is hunting feverishly for copper, zinc, nickel, manganese and platinum. Russia lias little nickel and zinc, but she can furnish large amounts of platinum, copper and manganese. She produces
95 per cent, of the. world's output of
platinum and 54 per cent, of the. manganese, while her copper production
is about 24,000 tons a year.
"flcr platinum mines are in the
Ural mountains, as are also most of
her copper mines. Thc manganese mines arc in Transcaucasia, between Tillisc and Batouin. The geographical position of these mines is
of the first importance. It means in
��� every case long transportation. If
the manganese can bc got to Batottm
I it can be. sent by the Black Sea to
Constantinople, and thence by rail
into Germany. But to get tlie copper and platinum from the Ural
mountains is another, and. far different proposition. Therefore it docs
not seem that Germany is likely to
achieve any immediate profit in cither food or war materials from the
conquest of Russia."
Advantage With Allies
Situation Shown by Review of Facts
and a Simple Calculation
Tire impossibility of a German
victory -German threats ot a great
spring' offensive notwithstanding���
becomes clear il' we. look at a few
simple facts. Thus, when the allies
hurled the Gctawan army bark at the
Manic, Trance had 1,5(10,000 men in
the lighting line and England had
a scant 100,000. Such forces as they
bad were outnumbered in the ratio
of live to three, and they were outranged in artillery and outnumbered
and outmatched in all the things
that go to make lip military equipment.
Since thc Maine -.lie French army
at the front has grown from 1,500,000
lo 3,000,000, and the British army
from 100,000 to 2,500,000. In 1914
the United States was a spectator
of the conflict; but by the time the
great German offensive (should it
ever conic ofl) is iu full swing, we
shall havc several hundred thousand
men at the front. In 1914 Germany
had a potential army of 9,500,000
men���today one-half of that number
has been killed, captured, permanently crippled or is dead from natural causes, with the result that, on
the western front, the numerical
superiority bas passed from Germany to the allies, who can oppose
more than 6,000,000 to a maximum of
4,500,000 German troops. In the
matter of artillery there is an equal
preponderance on the allied side.
Last, and by no means least important, is the fact that what is left
of the German army contains a far
larger proportion than the allied
armies of men who, by reason of
age and immature youth, are ill-suited to stand the terrific strain of
modern warfare. Nor should we in
this comparison forget that while
in the German army there has been
a noticeable decline in morale, due
to the pinch of want and the sickness
of heart which comes from endless
promises that arc unfulfilled, thc
morale of the allied armies, which
are well fed, steadily increasing in
strength and cheered by some 18
months of all but unbroken victories
from the Swiss border to the North
sea, is uniformly good.���prom thc

Crediting the Wrong Man
During a military church service
some British recruits were listening
to the chaplain saying: "Let ihem

British Population Grows
Increase Greatly in Excess of Number of Men Killed
In spite of thc drain of the great'
war upon man power thc population
of Great Britain is increasing. From
the beginning of thc war until thc
end of the first half of 1917, the latest pe'ridd for which there are statistics, the increase in Great Britain
has been more than nine hundred
thousand, a figure which is, of
course, greatly in excess of the number of men killed and drowned. The
enemy cannot derive the same comfort irom his own statistics, however. According to German and
Austrian publications there has been
a heavy decrease in the population
of Germany and Austria. It is well
worlh noting that while, between
August 1914 and June 1917, two hundred thousand people wcrc married
in England and Wales alone who
would not have married in peace
time, there has been in Germany and
Austria a decrease in llic marriage

Bettering the General Morale of the
The magnificent quality of the sacrifice made by Canadians on the
western fighting front is pretty well
fixed in the minds of all who have
followed the record of the war. Thc
offering of 10,000 lives at Ypres alone
was a itlorious deed, but it has been
followed up by the steady support of
the Dominion wherever called upon
to carry arms. Moreover, the support given by Canadians in Canada
is not to be considered less important than ber fuilliful servicc in
France. Wc arc just beginning lo
realize, in the United States, how integral aud nccssary a part of the
work of war is .lie industrial and
economic and financial work which
is done far back of the fi*-hting front.
Tlie devotion and sacrifice of the
Canadian people at home lias been
so greal as to command unqualified
admiration. Their devotion has resulted in splendid achievement, and
has, incidentally, brought gratifying
consequences to communities and individuals. In a word, it lias paid
them well, both iu concrete results

maintaining and bettering the general morale of the civilian.���New York

The Western Provinces have had
considerably larger crops than those
of last year, but never wcrc the
financial returns from the crops produced greater than in 1917. Never
was better preparation made the
year in advance of production than
has been made for the seeding ill
In Saskatchewan 6,134,619 acres
were prepared during the season of
1917 for seeding in 1918. Of ibis
total 431,698 is new breaking, 3,758,-
941 was summer fallowed last season, and 1,943,980 was fall plowed.
If as much spring plowing is done
this year as was done last, Saskatchewan will have upwards of 2|-_
million acres more in crop this season than was in crop in 1917, and
nearly four millions morc than in
any season before  1917.
What is more important still is
the fact that the preparation niadc
for seeding is belter than any previously made. Tbe amount of new
breaking is llie smallest on record.
and is onlv about one-third that of
cither 1913' or 1914. On the other
hand, the amount of fall plowing
done is nearly three-quarter million acres greater titan for llie. previous year, and the. amount of Hitn-
mcr-fallow, 3,758,941 acres, exceeds
nearly a million acres the highest previous record.
In Manitoba the new breaking ii
105,897 acres, an Increase ot 16,000
acres over llic previous season; 1,-
900,000 acres havo been fall plowed
51,000 more llian for last year, and
1,381,000 have been slimmer fallowed,  146,000 more  than  for 1917,
The figures for Alberta arc not
available, but it is believed preparations for spring in that province arc
ahead of those of previous years.
Given anything like reasonable
conditions, the area of spring plowing will also greatly exceed that ol"
last year. In Alberta tractors have
been bought wholesale since last
fall. Heavy purchases havc been
made in other provinces as well, and
in another fortnight or so whole districts in the west will show repetition on a vastly larger scale of thc
tractor demonstration given at
Thornhlll last autumn,
The final estimates of production
for last year put the yield of wheat
for the three l'rairic Provinces at
215,000,000 bushels, oats at 270,000,-
000, and barley at 50,500,000. As stated, the west has bad larger crops,
but never have the total returns for
those crops been as great as for
The value of the wheat alone
raised iu the west lasl year was well
over      $400,000,000,    Saskatch
share being $230,000,000, that of
berta over" $100,000,000, and Manitoba around $80,000,000.
The value of farm products of all
kinds actually shipped out of Saskatchewan last year is estimated at
nearly $230,000,000.
What is most gratifying, witii a
view to llic future, is thc extent to
which thc west is developing other
lines than grain fanning. In Manitoba the output of cheese and butter has increased from less than
$1,000,000 twelve vears ar-o to nearly $4,500,000 last year. Adding in the
milk and cream trade, the dairy output of the province reached nearly
$6,000,000. In the eleven months
ending with November, Manitoba
farmers sent almost 107,000 cattle
to the stock yards at St. Boniface.
It is in Alberta, however, that
relative progress iu this particular is
most marked. The three principal
grain crops of that province in 1917
���wheat, oats and barley���were
valued at $169,000,000, The value of
animals slaughtered or sold in llie
province, of dairy products, of wool
and of poultry products, disposed ot

In their place you have a speedy, dependable, dignified,
