very good article, und I only wish I
could get hold of a similar article describing my properties on Summit and
Boulder Creek. I am not now with the
gallant 54th. I have transferred to the
Mechanical Transports, and am rather
glad of It, as I hear the 64th are divided and half of It attached to the —
and half to the — to the 54th. Incidentally the — has absolutely tlle
worst record of any Canadian Uuttul-

will make good soldiers of them or
know the reason why.
I am over here with a Mobile Workshop.   It ls our duty to keep the motor
ambulances and cars running, and we
are kept fairly busy, but we have good
billets and also well fed and no lack
of clothes  or  facilities  for  keeping
them clean.
I suppose you are all posted up on
the big fight now going on nt Verdun
and Ypres for we expect big things to
happen ln the near future and everyone Is most optimistic concerning the
results of the present battle.
Well Judge, I see that Cranbrook Is
still sending men.   Our town always
does Itself proud.   You would be surprised to see the number of men from

"When the history ot the war comes
to be written with clearness and authority I think I can say without boasting that the part played by the Australian nation and by Australian soldiers will contribute a glorious chap*
Iter." The speaker was William Hughes
labor premier of Australia, who Is ln
Canada on his way to London.
"We have done all we can," he said,
"and wc are going to continue doing so
as time goes on. At the present time
Australia has 140,000 men at the front.
She has 245,000 men under arms, and
by spring she will have enlisted 300,-
000 men. When you remember that

| tlon of 6,000,000 aud does not Include
'our naval force, I think you will admit
I that we have not been slow lu doing
our share It Is true we failed at Oal-
lipoll, but at least we failed gloriously.
1 cannot speak of the valor of our Aun-
traliun lads without choking with emotion. The immortal charge of the Light
Brigade must pale forever before that
which wus made by the Eighth Australian Light Dorse right up to the
muzzles of the Turkish guns. They
received their order to charge the loe
10 hours iu advance. They knew that
for most of them it meant deuth. And
when the word came they went out—
and died. Tliey did not get very fur.
The colonel got the furthest. He fell
at 50 yards. Out of 500 who went out
only 15 survived.
"We must look back to the gray
dawn of history before we find a parallel for that. The Spartans ut Ther-
moplae fought a battle that was the
nearest to It: and their story will be'
told long after the pyramids will have'
crumbled to dust. But I think that the
deeds of thc citizen soldiery of Australia at Galllpoll must at least bc
equally Imperishable.

(The Victorian)
There are a lot of Conservative

the campaign. Something ls bound to
happen. The members of the Opposition, who have called the Conservatives everything and failed to "smile

be a show down before the session
closes, and on that show down will depend the result of the general election.
The Canadian press has had very
little tu say about President Wilson
and practically nothing whatever in
condemnation of his understanding of
the obligations of neutrality, but the
United States papers do not use him as
kindly, We read the following In The
New York Herald:
Germany having led the press a-
round by tlie nose, Is now engaged in
an effort to terrorize the President.
Long ugo, Count von Berustorff intimated thut if he were given hin passports, Germany would begin to sink
American ships within a week. The
fiame kind of crazy talk is being fed
out now tor the purpose of influencing the President. It Is to be hoped
he will meet it ln the true spirit. The
President should not hesitate a minute
when such methods are employed. We
know what Buchanan would have done.
Lincoln would not have hesitated.
Cleveland would not have hesitated.
- Nor would any President who followed
Cleveland have hesitated. If firmness
Is ever needed, It Ib needed now. For
heaven's sake, let the country know
the true situation, and, beyond all
things, atop wobbling!
This seems a little severe, and perhaps It is not quite certain what some
ot President Wilson's predecessors
would have done under such elrcumBtances as those with whicli he has to
deal. That his course bus not enhanced tho national prestige must be admitted,  but  possibly  It  In  better to
> have  peace  than   prestige.    Possibly

|   Irishman felt, who, when charged with
being afraid, said: "I'd rather be called
a coward than hftVfl people say: "How
•Mural be looks,"
(The Commoner, edited by W.J. Bryan)
The fundamental error of the advocates of "scaredness" is that they ask
the country to plan for possibilities Instead of probabilities. All things are
possible, and there is, therefore, no
limit to the amount of preparedness
which we need if we undertake to provide ugalnst every imaginable contingency. Suppose, for Instance, that wc
hnd a navy twice as large ns the navy
j of Oreat Britain, or even twice as
' large as all the other navies put together. That would look like sufficient
preparedness on tlio sea, nnd yet It Is
possible that a storm might destroy
our superiority ln a night. We might
huve an army of 5,000,000 men, all In
camp and under arms, and yet a plague
might destroy the camps and leave us
helpless In a week. There Is no reason why common sense rules should
he abandoned merely because designing profit-seekers nre able to scare
timid people with false alarms. Common sense suggests that we consider
probabilities only, not possibilities, and
If we consider only probabilities we
can not doubt that we are safer from
danger today than we have been at
any time before In half a century.

Farm management treats of thc
business of farming from the following
points of view: .1) Farming as an oc*
cupatlon: (2) Selection of the farm;
(3) organisation and equipment ot the
farm; (4) farm operation.
(I) Farming as aa Occupation—
As these short articles are addressed
mainly to the farmers of this district,
but little need bc sard on this point;
for the relative desirability ot farming as compared with other occupations is largely a matter of personal
taste, and In the case of those who
are already farmers lt can safely be
assumed that they have made their   	
choice and are content with lt.    The ing very heavily will on account of

world than, perhaps, any other business. But, on the other hand, It Is
perhaps more dependent on the elements than any other form of business.
In addition, the average profits from
funning are small.

themselves and depend very little on

or $3 a day.

perishable farm products, such as fruit
and truck crops.
(II) Selection ol the Farm
Here again, ln ahort articles such as
these, little need bc said on thia
point, as It can again be assumed that
thoso who are engnged In making a
living from farming In this district exercised their own Judgment In electing to farm here. But even to the
man who already owns a farm the
considerations Involved In selecting a
farm are of value, because they are
helpful In aiding him to determine the
value of his own property, and to Judge
the adequacy of the Improvements On
The selection of a farm Involves the
careful consideration of all those factors that affect (a) the desirability of
any region as t\ general location for
farming, and (b) the value ot a particular farm.
The first of these deals with   the
climate, length of growing
temperature ot   sis
land, character of the Improvements,
distance to market, nature of that market, distance to schools and ohurohea,
arrangement of the fields, location ot
the buildings, and so on.
Any farmer who will take the trouble'
to set down on paper these and any
other points In connection with
his farm which may occur to him,
and then endeavour to tbe best of his
ability to honestly answer them, wlll
be surprised at the difficulty he will
find In answering them correctly. And
yet, no man Intending to locate himself In any other line of business will
do so until be has made most minute
and far-reaching Inquiries, entering
Into much more detail than Is here
set forth. Too often a farmer's location Is the result of hearsay and optimism rather than of a careful study
of tbe vital factors affecting farming
as a business enterprise,
