A Good System
C.P R.   Invites    Suggestions     From
Employees.  With  Good  Results
The  recent  circular   issued   tn  employees of tlle C.P.R. asking for suggestions on the improvement, of the
service   has certainly "struck oil," for
suggestions have poured in tinlil tbo
committee   which   investigated   these
has at times been almost snowed under.   However, eaeli idea bas received
careful and individual attention, being
referred to the heads of the departments    concerned,    and    adopted or
otherwise according to   its merits or
practicability.   Some ideas have been
adopted    and    those    who suggested
Ihem  have so  much  to  their  credit.
Indeed promotion has already followed in several Instances and in othe-s
promotion is coming whenever the op-
iportunity oll'ers.    In    so complex an
organization as a railway, there ure
many angles nr point of view. Some
minds luiti'iimmellei.   by routine sees
un opening for improvement where lhe
man    on the actual job goes by precedent.    An operating official    whose
work compels him to travel may bave
pointers    on   the  treatment  of  passengers  which  he   gains  by personal
experience.   Ideas    from   other countries  may    be  adapted  to  Canadian
conditions, and may be suggested by
a  clerk  who  has    immigrated  from
Europe  or lhe  United  States.    II.  is
a good tiling that there should be a
melting   pot   for   the    ideas    of   the
('.Pit's hundred thousand employees.

He Gave it up
An English "Tommy," while stationed in a Flemish village, wanted to
buy a toothbrush, lieing unable lo
speak either French or Flemish, he
could not manage to make the people
understand what he wanted. After
several unsuccessful attempts, he hit
on a brilliant idea, and, entering a
little shop, he proceeded to imitate the
action ot brushing his teeth.
At first the old dame shook her
head, then her face suddenly lit up
with a smile. Placing a ladder against
the wall, she searched for several
minutes in some cardboard boxes on
a top shelf. She at last found what
she wanted, and triumphantly handed
him, not a toothbush, but a Jew's harp.
Hauling Stuff to Market
It is reasonable prophesy that
within the next ten years most of the
large cities will be supplied to a great
extent with products from the surrounding cuntry hauled in by motor-
driven trains over splendid highways.
This is already the case in London-
and Paris, and tbe cost of hauling lm
been reduced in such cases to as low
as four cents per to   per mile.
Each little truck far.ii in the neighborhood of Ixindon has its car, whici
is filled during the night with products intended for market. Early next
morning a powerful tractor picks uj
these individual cars from each farm
and delivers the produce at markeu
returning with such supplies as.the-'
farmers need from town.���Leslie s.

Contingent, lho largest t|iuintlly supplied by

The.<,' boolH were worn by our soldiers on
active service both In Ihls country and In thu
training camps In England. They wero subjected to llie most severe usage thnt hoots
could be subjected to. They travelled over
rough roads nud smooth. Tbey waded through
mild and through slush past nil description.
They wero soaked by the never-ceasing rains
nf an abnormally wet English winter. They
were bilked on hot sloven, grilled on sleam
radiators und roasted bofore open tires. Vet,
Out of lhe enliro 112,217 pairs ot leather
hoots supplied hy this company only a single
pair was shown lo bo open to criticism when
llie Government enquiry was made six months
Kxperls employed by Ihc Government examined 1305 pairs and 3J8 odd boots made by
various manufacturers. Among the number
were found only seven pairs of bools of Ames
Ilolden McCready manufacture, of wliieh five
were found to be repairable, one pair unrepairable, and ONE PAIR HAD A KOI.E UNDER
The best proof of the durability and serviceability of the Ames Holden McCready boots,
however, wa3 afforded by tbe sworn statements of soldiers who bad worn these boots
constantly from the lime thoy were issued In
September, 1914, right through to March, 1915.
They swore that they had worn the boots
through all the rough experiences at Valcar-
tler and on Salisbury Plain and that they
had given excellent service throughout. Sergeant Nussey, of Toronto, who had served
twelve years in the British Army, appeared before the Committee with a pair of such boots
still on his feet and submitted them to the
committee's Inspection,
Tho testimony of these witnesses has since
been amply corroborated hy numerous reports
nnd letters received from officers and soldiers
at the front nil testifying lo Ihe good wearing
qualities of the Ames Holden McCready boots.
* *   *   *
When the question was raised concerning
the quality ot the Canadian soldiers' bonis,
Ames Holden McCready Limited placed Ihein-
BSlVSS IMMEDIATELY upon record, hy writing
to tlie Government, as desirous of having the
most thorough Investigation of the matter. The
appointment of a Parliamentary Committee and
the official enquiry followed. It occupied several weeks' time. The Committee slopped it
nothing In ihelr efforts to get at all Ihe facts.
This Company purchased the best leather
and supplies available in Canada nnd spared nn
expense io manufacturing tbe boots. All our
Invoices, and shop and manufacturing records
were produced before the Parliamentary Committee for their Inspection and .information.
We had nothing to tilde and were proud of the
bools which were furnished to the Government.
Tho Committee reported to Parliament that
the boots supplied by this company substantially complied with Ihe sample, that no paper
or other fraudulent subslances had been employed ln their manufacture and that all
charges involving the Integrity of this company
or of the boots supplied by them had been
abundantly disproven by the sworn evidence
taken before Ihe Committee.
The report, which was adopted hv Parliament, was A COMPLETE VINDICATION FOR
��� *    .    .
In bringing these facts prominently before
the people of Iho Dominion, Ames Holden
McCready Limited are actuated by tho desire
not only to protect their own good name ���
which needs no vindication with the thousands
of Canadians who arc familial- with this company and its products ��� but also that of a
notable and Important Canadian Industry,
which has been unwarrantably aspersed,

Here is a tale which is well vouched
for. When Ypres was first bombarded
early in November we withdrew our
troops from the town, hut did not remove the civil population. There was
one British private who did not leave
with the rest, for he was asleep in a
cellar, Next morning he awoke to find
Ypres without any authority and he
set about governing it himself. He
kept eleven citizens under iron discipline, had looters shot at sight, and
though himself inclined to the bottle,
prevented drunkenness in others.
They called him "Le Roi d'Ypres,"
but his kingship lasted only a week.
A cailous court martial tried him,
found his efforts in the cause of order had been good and forgave his
other delinquencies.

many other articles required for

Once a Canadian, always a Canadian. The Canadian casually lists
from the battle of Langemarck contain tbe names of many residents of
the United. States. Tlie number is too
large to be attributed to the presence of American soldiers of fortune
in the ranks of the Canadians. While
no doubt some of those reported
among the killed and wounded whose

for the cause of the allies, the greatest majority are Canadians or sons of

The Importance of Seed-Growing in
Canada is Emphasized
Iu 1913-14, according lo Information
gathered and supplied by Mr. George
II. clink, the Dominion seed commissioner, Canada imported from France
and Germany no less than 900,743
pounds of beet und mangel seed; from
Holland and France, 360,840 pounds ot
turnip seed, and from France alone

Willi the demand for shell brass

It was more like a yachting trip in
some protected stretch of water and
having nothing else lo occupy their
minds, the sailors took to knitting
hosiery l'or the soldiers, according to
Captain Thompson in reporting the arrival of his vessel to the consignees,
J. F. Whitney &. Co.
Captain Thompson lias had a good
many years' experience in roaming
the seven seas on the heaving decks
of "windjammers,' but never liad such
a pleasant trip as the one just completed in the Vimiera, he said. Hardly a hand was necessary at the linos
and some of the canvas unfurled
when ihe hark got under way was not
reefed until she brought up with the
Jersey shore.
The Vimiera dipped far to the southward and logged more than four
thousand miles before the tug took

llle requirements for tli is year, these

The foregoing important facts are
duly set, down in Bulletin No. 22, of
the Second Series ot tlle Central Experimental Farm, of which M, 0.
Malte, Ph.D., Dominion agrostologlst,
and W- T. Macoun, Dominion horticulturist, are the authors. "Canada,'-' the
Bulletin very emphatically says,
'"should make herself independent of
foreign markets, and produce at home
what now has to bs bought abroad.
Canadian fanners should not only try
to meet the emergency demand for.
Held root seed in the immediate future, Imt should also try to establish
a permanent seed-growing industry
which would make thent independent
of any other countries." There will
assuredly not be a dissenting voice
to this doctrine as a general principle
and the liulletiu, which is being gratuitously distributed and can be had

state of affairs can bs brought about.
Cases nre given where successful effort has already been made, but Ihe
data regarding the matter, it would
seem, is not quite as available as
could be wished. What is definitely
known is lhat quantities of seed are
brnoght in from abroad, much of
which it is believed could, with the
requisite care, be produced In Canada
and of a character as good and high.
General principles for successful
seed-growing, of selection, etc., are
laid down in the Bulletin, whicli also
details methods that could profitably
be adopted for planting, threshing
and cleaning of many species of field
roots. A list that is given of the best
varieties of vegetables tor stock seed
is of good practical value. Farmers

This increase, the committee found,
