Our Allies Must Be Fed
DESPITE war conditions, we have not as yet felt the pinch
of hunger in Canada. Consequently, it is difficult for us
to realize the grave need for increased food production in
order that others may be fed. At no time is Europe self-supporting
in the matter of food. After nearly four years of war, our Allies
are living from hand to mouth, depending entirely on the safe
arrival of food ships from across the Atlantic.
Because of our comparative nearness to our Allies, and because
of our wide, fertile areas, this continent must continue to feed
Europe. If we fail, hundreds of thousands of people may starve
and our armies be denied a conclusive victory.
A bumper crop, a record harvest and increased meat production in Canada
will be worth the winning of many battles to the Empire and our Allies at
this critical period.
Increased Production Imperative
Canada must raise for export at least 250,000,000 bushels of wheat more In
1918 than in 1917, to enable the Allies to maintain even their present
restricted rations.
They shall NOT starve I	
make that your slogan.
Plans have been formulated which,
on the authority of The Director of
Agricultural Labor, positively ensure that labor will be provided
when needed, to harvest the maximum crop. Authorities agree that
the world-wide shortage of food will
continue for yean after the war.
The farmer is assured a ready and
profitable market for all the grain
and meat that he can produce.
The Empire depends on the CautJian Farmer to "carry ml"

Able   Address   given   by   Mis*.   Much
Smith nt Women's Institute
I would like to ask the assistance
and co-operation of tlie Women's institute in a matter thai effects practically every housekeeper iu Cranbrook. and nine-tenths of the immediate rural district The question is
poundage; or rather Uip.i some smic-
able arrangement may he made between the town and farmers whereby
the birds of the vicinity may economically use thc range and yet not be a ,
pes) and nuisance io tlie town-dweller,
No self-respecting farmer should
even in hir own mind calmly tolerate
tin' Idia ot his stock making the lawn
of his town-neighbor a pasture, wrecking gardens and side-walks and Incidentally Hie Sabbath 'aim at rive A
M.. with the all too familiar clltter-
clalter of ihe cow bell, As Mark
Twain might have said "Ii aini Christian."
Excessive poundage is nol gooo
business The futile vituperation and
constant jangling it causes settles into
chronic ill-feeling between town anil
country. As some otto has aptly pul
it "When tlie house is on fire it is
lime tor the husband and wife to quil
guarrellng." This is no time for unreasoning squabbling on a question
Which, though it may not concern our
bread it may affect the butter w(. wish
for our bread very materially.
The term City ns applied to Cranbrook Is rather a misnomer. It helps'
the town-dweller forget that this is
a pioneer country. That blackened
stumps and barren land are- much
more common within a radius of three
miles then are hay fields. The cultivated land is pitifully small in this
time of stress, and such land as is
cultivated must be harvested and put
away for winter feed. Few farmers
have enough land cleared for pasture
With the exception of the open prairie
north of town it would take at least
from seventy to one hundred and fifty
acres of this wild bftfich land to feed
one animal continuously through the
summer months,
Cranbrook's geographical situation
alone makes import most expensive.
Hundreds of miles from any great food ,
producing territory, no waterways, no
competitive railways, only a single
pair of rails running through almost
Inaccessible country, the upkeep of
which makes freight, rates most prohibitive.
When I came to Cranbrook five
years ago. milk retailed at twelve and
one half cents a quart. It hns remained stationary when every other human
nnd animal food has gone ballonlng.
This is due to three things: good buying on the part of dairy men, summer
range grazing and a sincere reluctance
on the part of some dairymen to raise
the price, as It would mean almost
hardship to large families of small
ing for a meagre profit, he finds lie
must make n change If the City Council continues it** present attitude
Sun.c may move away no doubt, aud
;i few have already goua; those who
remain must re-organize their system
of business.
This means a smaller number of
cattle kept in proportion to the population and these stable-fed all year round.
I have asked Hie opinion of the bept
informed on the subject and they
agree that al present prices milk
cannot he produced under such conditions for less than twenty five cents
per quart, and our merchants tell us
thai hay will advance greatly in price
before the middle of May!
The government nnd many self ordained preacher*- of economic war
gospel are exhorting the farmer to
product- not only in ordinary lines,
but to produce as far as possible all
needs for himself, thereby lightening
freight traffic and freeing marketable
produce for more needy markets.
This is excellent doctrine for the town
as well u the individual. Utilize food
and food values al your door.
Pre,, range is one of the cheap
values in Kast Kootenay It makes
for cheaper milk, dairy produce, beef
and pork. Also cheaper labor as the
food and labor of the farm horse must
be considered in the cost of production
of food,
At ;i conservative estimate Cranbrook uses six hundred quarts of
milk daily. Under entire stabling, and
partial grazing systems the daily milk
hill for tie town is vastly different.
About seventy five dollars i er day.
Ton great for a town of this size to
throw away at any time much Ie;s
in war llmi : and milk is one of the
most necessary and economical fools
wn have. Is It too much for tlie
rural population to ask out of this
srving a li'"o aid that this need may
he supplied at a moderate price?
It has been proposed that each
stock-owner near town be assessed a
small tax per head, per month, and If
the town would add a tittle aid to
this a herdsman could be kepi to keep
the town clear of stock. Herds not
paying   assessment   being  Impounded,
Before this war is over the old
proverb "Wilful waste makes woeful
want" that was the bugbear of many
a child In pasi generations, may have
uncomfortable prominence. If the
free grazing surrounding Cranbrook
Is wasted, tlie result is as Inexorable
as tbe mills of the gods, the householder and property owner of Cranbrook must pay tho piper.

Editor. The Herald:
Dear slr--A number of people have
spoken to mo recently with reference
to u very mischievous story being circulated to the effect that the Canadian Rod Cross Society has sold various articles, donated to them, to soldiers.
I wish to state most emphatically
that this Ib not the case./ My experience covers Imperial and Canadian
Hospitals In England, France and
Canada and I have never once seen
anything to bear out the story.
Canadian soldiers requiring anything
, have only to send their application in
to Headquarters in London either dlr*
I ect or through the regular Red Cross
visitor. In order to receive what they
desire by return of post, without
charge of any kind.
i   have  known   soldiers  receiving
, articles in  this  manner  afterwards
'. selling them on their own account,
but the Red Cross Society cannot be
held responsible for tills action.
Yours faithfully.
Sgt. Can. Engis.

Incident that happened In this city a
matter of ton days ago. which In the
ordinary course of things, might have
been looked upon as a very commonplace and innocent occurrence, and
I have been treated merely ns the tor-
tunes of political warfare, but which
I in reality is portentous of a situation
I that the people of Cranbrook have to
; fear nnd be alive to.
I refer to the dismissal, without
' any  reason   assigned,  of  the   police
j I care nol a button for the man who
j has been dismissed nor have I any
I objection to the man slated for the
( job, but I do protest most vlgorouslj
] against the nianer in which these
; things are or have been done.
! I am given to understand that the
j local executive of the Liberal party
i know absolutely nothing of it officially
' but, there is a suggestion that other

more cash than the common folk with

than the honest support of honest
