Rural School Picnics To
Agricultural College
On Thursday, the 2 ft I inst. the
.first excursion to the Manitoba Agri-
'ullnrul College from some of the
rural schools was inaugurated and
proved a great success.
Tbe children and the teachers who
went with them arc all enthusiastic
over their trip" and say they spent a
niosl enjoyable, as well as instructive
day Mr. Newton of the Extension
Department welcomed the 30 children and 4 teachers 1 kindly provided a guide (or ibe parly lo show
them over lhe different buildings; lhe
domestic science, sewing rooms, (exiles and house keeping, etc.
The party then wenl in ibe poultry
Houses, where Prof. Herner took
great interest in the children, cx-
plaining and nuking each child lest
some eggs, visiting the incubator
room, where chickens were hatching.
Showing Ihem brooders, where 300
thickens were being fed and explaining how in feed with butter milk old
'Ihen came fattening poultry in
crates and trap nests for the laying
hens, and finally to the room where
they saw lhc dry picking of broilers.
From the poultry bouses the party
proceeded lo llie pig pens, where the
children were much interested in the
young pigs. Then into lho cattle
barns where they saw some beautiful calves. Sheep pens were nexl
visited and greal interest taken in thc
little new born  lambs,
The girls, ns well as lhe hoys,
evinced the grealest interest in the
live stuck and were eager tu see everything,
The college kindly arranged for
them to eat their lunches in the dining bull and provided tbein with hot
lea, which wus much appreciated.
After lunch they visited llie conservatories where the beautiful display
of flowers delighted them. Then
came the museum, where lhe stuffed
'bird-, and animals proved a great attraction. The teachers could hardly
drag the children away, but time was
limited and a very happy and satis-
lied crowd took lhe cars back to
These picnics might well be extended to all the rural schools within
easy distance of lhe college Most
of the children wcrc the older pupils
who are members of the boys and
girls clubs. These clubs arc being
provided with line bred eggs, young
pigs, seed grains and potatoes, etc.,
by tbe college and it was thought
that those country children .might
with profit see how' to look after and
care for the produce they raise, in the
best manner, as shown al thc college.
Many of these children never have
��n opportunity of seeing anything
beyond their own home farm, but
after sueh a visit these children will
have an ambition to return to thc
college Inter on and lake advantage
of the tine course of instruction provided  there.
Even an occasional visit lo a big

endless themes fur essays and discussions and il is to be hoped thai
many more of the rural schools will

the ride, was rather long and two of
Miss Taylor's girls took ill so she
took tliriit in a jitney from EatOllS.
Wo left Hcadingly at 9 o'clock and
reached the college ni 11 a.m. Each
child look a lunch the same as for a
regular school day. Mr. Newton yvas
very nice and culled a young lady
from Iiis office who showed us about
his building, the domestic science
room, sewing room, textiles and
bouse, keeping room. Then Mr. Herner, 1 think that yvas his name, took
us oyer to the chicken houses, He
took an active interest in the children
asking questions, etc. A pleasant
lime was spent iu the egg testing
room, each child tested some eggs.
Then we visited the iiicubatot room,
one Incubator was hatching, Children
yvcre all interested in ibis. Then wc
went inlo a room where Iwo men
were dry picking bi oilers, then into
Ibe room where the fattening crates
were, then, to the pens where lhe
bens und laying hens yvere. Onc girl
saw a hen go into n nest ami the nest
shutting, There were many young
chicks. The children were delighted
with the large brooders where 300
chicks were kept. Mr. Herner told
them how Ihey fed Ihe chickens buttermilk, etc, In onc pen were some
guinea pigs and everyone had a good
look, There wns a pen of young
ducks.    Saw some turkeys and geese.
After lhc visit lo lhc fuyvls we
paid a visit lo lhe dining room wliicli
lhe college placed very kindly rit our
disposal. 'I'hey supplied us with hot
lea which was much appreciated by-
all as the day wus rather chilly. After
lunch we were lakeu around Ihe. stock
by a Mr. Woods. Everyone tuok a
keen interest in ihe pigs. One old
sow with little ones was very lame
and genlle, the children walked in
the pen right beside her. Wo saw
llic pig cols ami winter quarters then
went to the cattle barn where thcie
was sonic beautiful calves. We only
saw two ewc3 and three Ir.mbs as all
the sheep wcrc out but these. Saw
a few horses. The children yvcre delighted yvith the. conservatory and
museum, 'The stuffed biids and animals are so instructive to young
minds. Wc left on the 3 o'clock car
and 1 look my girls tn the industrial
bureau for another hour lo finish out
the day. I think most of the children
went home ou the four o'clock Head-,
ingly car bill yvc came on lhe five,
reaching Hcadingly at six very tired
but satisfied that the trip was not
only enjoyable bul most instructive.
1 hope you can read tllis as it is rather a poor scrawl. I wns very sorry
you were not able to be with us ou
our trip. Mrs. Britton takes a won
dcrful interest in the boys aud girls

Periodical visits or excursions to
the college at least once or twice a

arrange excursions in conjunction

Established Freedom
Of Conscience
Religion in Russia to Be No Bar to
Possession of Political Rights
Thc ministry of the-'iutcrior hns
submitted to the provisional governnieni a bill establishing freedom of
conscience, Possession of civil aud
political rights no longer depends on
religion. 1'V a change of religion,
official permission will nut be needed.
Up to nine years of age a child's
religion is determined by ils parents:
if ther is a disagreement the child
takes the mother's religion. Over
nine years of age the religion cannot
be changed without the. consent of
the child itself. Over .seventeen years
religion can be .changed withoul the
parent's or .guardian's, consent.

Note and Comment
The pound by-law and its sponsors come in for considerable criticism even yet, Our fanner friends
apparently cannot grasp the fact
that this is an inocrporated city
and that those who build residences
and plant flower aud vegetable gardens have any lights in the community whatever. They have just
as much right to he protected
against tbe depredations of young
cattle horses and cows as the farmer has to be protect.ul against thc
depredations of youi lis .nul others
who would help themselves to his
vegetables, grain, etc. For instance
should a ging uf, say -o. of us go
into a farmer's place, eat all the
fruit, vegetables we could, then
tramp around thiough the grain
fields for a while and do all tlle
damage possible, would the farmer
say " Glad to see yon boys, come
again"? Not much he'd meet us
with a shot gun or have us haled
to the nearest magistrate, Why
shouldn't we protect ourselves
against his animals ? Courtenay
has brge tracts of vacant lots and
long streets that would be overgrown wilh deuse grass and weeds
if left alone, and would become
unsightly and a menace to the com-
'iiiniiy. Therefore lhe council
has passed by-laws allowing ujilch
cows owned by residents or property owners to feed on these dining
the day time between March i and
Nov. I of each year, but horses
and young stock are required to be
kept off. This is quite reasonable
and allows anyone to kerep a family
COW or two, or even a small daily,
Noyv it is not tip to two or tlirte
persons to spoil a good thing. Anyone who let voting cattle or hors.s
run al. large all summer knew that
he yvas doing so contrary to the by
law and that bis animals would be
caught sooner or later if a constable could be found with enough
" sand " to do his duty. Tin.
Mayor i.s inclined to adopt the plan
outlined by Tbe Review two years
ago, viz., license every animal that
runs the strtets. This will provide
cheap pasture and create a revenue
for the city. lint some betttt
fences will have to be built if this
sort of bv layv is put into force,
" God moves iu a mysterious
way, bis wonders to perform," We
do not doubt tor a moment that 11 is
sovereignty and His goodness yvill
bring out of this darkest ni.hi of
tbe world's experience a gain to
match the loss. Hither this or we
must confess tiiere i��� no God,    Ex
It '..as been suggested that instead of bothering with stray cattle
the police get afler tbe auto drivers
who break the speed laws on the
Union Bay road This would be
great sport. There's a mile or so
of good road, and every driver who
comes abiig steps his car out to
see how fast he can do i\ A
couple of men with a stop yvatch
on a measured course could greatly
help the financial situation at the
city hall. Enough coin might be
gathered in to Int.Id rood roads in
other sections of the city where
more speed   .cuds could he caught.

Crying in the Wilderness
The slimy nature ot the Toronto
Star has   revealed   itself   again.
For over a year it advocated   conscription when it knew  that  conscription   was  almost,  impossible
owing to the fact that  men  cutild
evade it. by   stepping   across   the
line to   the   United   States.    No
government of Canada was   likely
to adopt  conscription  until after
the United States came   into tlie
war,   Therefore  the Star  urged
tho Government to put it into effect, just, as several Quebec   journals did, believing that   the iiine
would never come when   it would
or could bo dotio without damage
to the government nnd the country |
Now that the Military sorvico trill
.ins been passed ibe Star   seeks  a
way out.    It expresses sympathy
for Sir Wilfred   Laurier nnd  do-
nominees Sir   Robert   Borden   as
wcak und indecisive.    II, demands
that hu quit, and give way to some'
other man.    It does not   advocate
Sir Wilfred.     It conId not  afford
to do that and keep circulation in
Ontario.    It name-1 no man;   and
wiil not  do so because  it cannot
without   starting   a   fusilade    of.
stones against its nominee,    It ad-'
vocated  union  government  when
.t thought union impossible.   Now j
that, it seems likely to  bo  accom- |
plished the Star tries to thwart   it
by attacking the only man  in evidence    as   ieader,      The    Star's
views find no echo among Liber
al conscriptionists at  Ottawa  un
less it be Mr. George P. Graham. !
Outer   Liberals    will   cheerfully
admit that the only  man   who  is
"quipped to lead Canada  through
these trying times  is Sir  Robert
Borden.   These Liberals are   honest and sincere.    They   did  not;
advocate   union   government  fori
pttrti/.an reasons.    They  did   not!
urge conscription thinking it migli'
embaiass the government to give
or reject it.    Unlike the Star they
are sincere in advocating conscrip
lion ank in regarding a union government as necessary to   its   enforcement,   They are quite willing
to serve under Sir Robert Borden
but we doubt if they   would  consent to serve undc the Star'u nominee,    However,   that   journal
can ascertain   this   by   definitely
nrming the man.

of Farmers
When farmers buy more kind ii Is
au infallible sign of their prosperity,
'I hat ihc Western Canadian lanu. i..
arc exceedingly prosperous 'is i'<
vcaled in ihe large quantities rn land
being bought by ihem every day. A
v i-r i striking Instance of this was
seen al Glen-hen in Southern Albi i
ia. 'Ihree hundred and twenty live
parcels of land, which consisted of
one quarter section each, were put
on sale, by auction, being ihc balance
of lhc l:imls in ihc Blackfoot Indian
Reserve surrendered by the Indians
under a treaty, This sale attracted
nearly one thousand buyers, of whom
lhe greal majority were farmers from
a radius of two hundred ndli s, in fact,
local fanners were ll"' lliglu -i bid
di is. Land speculators who attended
ihe sale could nol compete with Ihem
in the prices which ihey bid and
wcrc more or lis. silent, Another
notable facl was the presi ucc nl a
number of American farmers intending to start farming iu Alberta. "If
the land is its good as it looks, il is
worth double the price," said a Minnesota man after paying $36 an acre
for a quarter scclion of laud. The
average price was about $30 per aire,
tin- highest being !fT', which was paid
hy a Gleichen man. Allowing for a
certain inevitable clement of specula-
tii n, il is believed certain lhal ()U per

Heaviest Losses Suffered by Medical
Reports indicate that hcavicsl losses in lhe present war have been suffered by the medical corps.
In former wars, physicians were
kepi in the rear, but not so now .
Four doctors acotnpany each regiment, and three of these arc sent lo
the firing line with thc troops to give
immediate aid to thc wounded. Without arms and with no way of pro-
Iccting themselves, these men are
mowed down. Already 60,000 have
been Tilled. In a recent engagement
257 were killed in an hour; in another
engagement 400 were killed. An ambulance driver, temporarily called
from his posl, returned to find only
12 persons lefl out of lhe original 10s.
