Through the action of the Minister
of Agriculture. The Honourable T. A.
Crernr, arrangements have again been
made to have the Canadian Bankers*
Association co-operate with the De-
partment of Agriculture in providing
a liberal sum of money to be offered
in prizes for calves and pigs exhibited by boys or girls under 17
years of age, at one fair in each district—either a County, Township or
School  Fair.
These competitions are known OS I
the '■Canadian Banker's Competition",'
and nre linked up with thc activities I
of the Live Stock Brnnch of tbe Dom-
Inlon Department of Agriculture
They represent nn effort to increase
Interest In live stock, and constitute i
a pari of the active campaign for more
and better stock Inaugurated nnd ear-1
ried on by that Department. The generous support accorded to the movement, by the Canadian Ranker's Association affords a practical demonstration of the ntltude of the banks
towards the live slock industry, nnd

i hey did, the |il oil go a of   the   large
majority of the Householders.
The   uiujoriiy    of    those     pledging
themselves to   conscientiously   carry
mn the directions of the Pood Controller  may lie  relied  upon  to faithfully
their besl lo live up to their undertaking.
!     Those who claim to have coiisclent-
! ions objections are, wo   believe,   nt
j heart, just as desirous of helping our
! fighters to win but perhaps they have
nol given the real seriousness of the
I foo(| situation as much thought as it
desorvos;  if they will stop to con-
t aider that victory depends us much up-
the  ability of the Allies  to  hold
longer than the enemy us upon the
i superior fighting qualities of our arm-
I les and that the question of the food
' supply   nifty   very   possibly   be     the
decisive   factor of tlie  war. they   will
j appreciate  that  a  very serious res-
ponslbillty rests upon each one of us
to do our part In saving food.
The fighting part of the war is in
ihe hands of our gallant men at the
Front. Fighting and Food are inseparable. Cut off the food supply and
the fighting must cease. The rood part
of tho war is in the hands of the
Householder.       v
The fighters do not stop fighting
when tin* war machinery does not go
Just right, they fight all the harder
and the householder must not stop
mving food when tlie food saving machinery is not to their thinking Just
right, they must save all the harder.
After all. nothing matters but winning the war; if we lose, we lose

They cauuot attack the barberry any
more, but can only grow on such
grains us wheat, rye, outs and bur-
ey and on many common grasses.
When a spore carried by the wind
readies a field of grain, it settles on
;i stem, burrows under the shin and
in about eight or ten day reproduces
other spores. These spores can attack other grain und continue to
reproduce until the grain matures.
This stage is called the red stage aud
is the one that does the damage by
sapping the energy of ihe plant and
causing the kernels to spread over
u large territory during a season.
These spores reproduce in a way thai
would make flies and mosquitoes ashamed of themselves. All they need Is
a damp day. such as after a rain, a

much depends upon the weather. Conservative estimates place the average
loss in recent yenrs at 2il.000.000. bushels of main a year. In 19X6 there
came ihe worst attack of the rust that
the United Stales has ever known.
Weather and moisture conditions were
just riuhi and within thirty ilay» one
of Hie finest crops or wheat In years
was ravaged ruthlessly. The greatest
blow fell upon the spring wheat states
of the North West. In Minnesota, the
Dakotns ami Montana ihe loss wait estimated at $110,000,000. for wheat alone. The total Iohs for the country
must have heen nearly 200.000.000 bushels or nearly on0-third of ihe entire
crop. Many of the fields were never
harvested and he says lhe only safeguard Is to gel rid of every common
barberry hush, except ihe Japanese
variety, by digging it up and burning
The hlaek slem runt spends one
stage of Us life on the leaves if the
common barberry before it can attack
grain, This nisi is ordinarily seen in
lis winter or dormant stage, as It lies
in hlaek streaks on old straw and stubble. When Spring comes, the spores of
tho rust, so tiny that It takes a microscope to see them, begin to show life
Each spore germinates and produces
small spores or seeds. These can be
carried long distances by the wind,
but they cannot attack Rrain or gras-
ess, There is no plant they can attack so far us is known, except the
barberry leaves. If they do not find
;i barberry plant, they perish and never get a chance to harm grain. When
these spores settle on tho barberry
leaves, they germinate and In a week
or ten days small yellowish spots appear on the underside of ihe leaves.

One of the most conspicuous fea- [ ^[h f
tures of the various rhtirch meetings --j-*, nricea
which have heen held lately has1
been the expectation) wliich was
given voice to widely differing religious sects, of an approaching
union of tiie Protestant forces. The
Bishop of Niagara has expressed the
hope that church divisions will! soon
tie a lliiug of the past, and the Uev.
A. H. McQillivrav. at Ibe meeting ot{ |my l0 ree,d llie livelng€ ^ cow

testanttsm," .bough ibis did not im- "«mmw "tremely unfavorable wea-
' ther, ii will pay to feed milking cows
Bomethine besides the pasture. if
soiling crop of silage is available, con-
centrated feed is less important, but
urains ot abnormally
question will arise in
ilie mind* of many dairy farmers as
to whether or not it will pay to feed
concentrated feeds of any hind to dairy
cows while on pasture.
Given :.u abundance of good pasture, experiments at MacDonald Col
lege   have   proved   mnl,  It  will  not
ply, he explained, the complete
nicrping of tho seels.
The war will doubtless have a
strong tendency to obliterate the
fine distinctions which at present
separate the various bodies of
Christendom. The narrow barriers
of creed are destined, let ns hope
Io he swept away in the mighty
current of a unified Christianity
The central doctrine of the Redemption has never made j more iiower-
ful appeal than In these days of
universal death and sorrow, and the
opportunity for combining forces
presented to the church by this
spiritual quickening should not be
allowed to subside without a very
earnest attempt al action of a practical kind.
What, after all, are these peculiar differences of faith which keop*
Protestant churches, so stubbornly
asunder? H would pusslo the average church adherent to name tlie
particular point or doctrine on which
he differs Trom his Christian brother
of another denomination, changes
'n the forms of worship are spontaneously shaping themselves In the
Increasingly ornate character of the
services of I tic nonconformist
churches, and (n lhe i ntng down
of much of tlie Anglican ri.ual. A
happy mean can easily be struck
which will bring In all believers of
tho essential facts of Christianity,
and In this case union will indeed
be strength. Carlyle, in his peculiar trenchant style, sums the matter up very neatly in Pnsl nnd
"That certain human souls, living
on Ihls practical earth, should think
to save themselves and a ruined
world by noisy theoretic demonstrations and laudations of 'tlie' church
instead of some un-nolsy, unconscious, but    practical,   total,   heart-

The prevailing practice in many
districts is to depend upon pasture
entirely. For the average cow having
as sin- does small milking capndtV
ami usually quite n territory or rough
pasture, ll is tfiiSUioii. 010 if again
feeding will pay under preBeni conditions. On lhe other hand farming fs
more Intensified, with less acreage in
pasture and better rows, It Is absolutely necessary and it will pay to supplement the grass when if gets short
with at least a Unified amount of grain
Tlie time to commence feeding Is
just when the cows begin or even a
little before they begin to shrink because of short pasture, If feed is delayed until the cows have materially decreased lu milk aud llesb the results
from reeding will at first he dlaap-
polntlng and will continue so until thc
cows regain normal condition. This J
fuel ox plains many of the apparently!
poor results from extra feedings.
The amount of feed necessary must
depend on i he cow's work, her condi-
ifou and whnl else she Is receiving.
In the average case three to five
pounds of meal per day will suffice.
At the present time it Is often a case
of lulling what meal may be available
and mixtures are almost out of question, Oil cake meal seems about as
good value as anything and less of it
will do. It is a good milk producer,
and Is n splendid feed for sustaining
and InereasiiR body weight. If other
feeds can be combined with it so much

Military Service Act, 1917.
Men 19 and 20 Years of Age.
Harvest Leave.
Leave of Absence on Ground of Extreme Hardship.
Procedure to obtain Leave of Absence.
Men Nineteen and Twenty Years of Age.
It has come to the attention of the Government that there is a widespread
impression that young men of nineteen years, and those who became twenty
since October 13,1917, as well as those who may become nineteen from time to
time and who have been or will be called upon to register under the Military
Service Act, are to be immediately called to the colours.
This impression is quite incorrect. No date has yet been fixed for calling
upon such men to so report for duty, nor has the question been brought before
the Cabinet for decision. In view of the need of labour on the farm, it is most
unlikely that consideration will be given to the matter until after the harvest is
over, although of course the Government's action must be determined primarily
by the military situation.
There is no further obligation incumoent ii|joii young men of the ages
above mentioned who have registered or who do so hereafter, until they receive
notice from the Registrars.
Harvest Leave.
Some enquiries have been received as to the possibility of granting harvest
leave to such troops as may be in the country at that time. No definite assurance can be given on this point as advantage must be taken of ships as they
become available. On the other hand, harvest leave will be given if at all
possible.    t>
Leave of Absence on Grounds of Extreme Hardship.
It is desired that the Regulations respecting leave of absence in cases of hardship should bo widely known and fully understood. Such leave will be granted
in two cases:-— (a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of the fact that the
man concerned is either the only son capable of earning t\ livelihood, of a father
killed or disabled on service or presently in service overseas, or in training for
such service, or under treatment after returning from overseas/ or the only
remaining of two or more brothers capable of earning ft livelihood (the other
brother or brothers having been killed or disabled on service, or being presently
in service overseas, or in training for overseas or under treatment after his or
their return from overseas); brothers married before 4th August, 1**14, living in
separate establishments and having a child or children not to be counted,
in determining the fact that the man is the "only" remaining son or brother;-
(b) wliere extreme hardship arises by reason of exceptional oircumstahoes such as
the fact that tho man concerned is the sole support of a widowed mother, an
invalid father or other helpless dependents.
It is to be noted that in all these cases the governing factor is not hardship,
loss or suffering to the individual concerned, but to others, that is, members of
his family or those depending upon him.
Procedure to obtain leave of absence.
A simple system for dealing with these cases has been adopted. Forms of
application have been supplied to every Depot Battalion and an officer of each
battalion has been detailed whoso duty it is to give them immediate attention.
The man concerned should on reporting to his unit state that he desires to apply
for leave of absence on one or more of the grounds mentioned and his application
form will then be filled out and forwarded to Militia Headquarters, Ottawa. In
the meantime, if thc case appears meritorious, the man will be given provisional
leave of absence for thirty days so that he may return homo and continue his
civil occupation while his ease is being finally disposed of,
Ihsuep by Department of Militia and Defence,
Department of Justice.
