Wholesale starvation in this instance moans over three million peoplo and added to tbem four million
more, who must look to food sent from
Canada, the States and South America for their sustenance. Everyone
who has reviewed the history of Belgium since tho first of August, 1914,

things which the Belgian people have

The demand for horses has boon in
creased since thn outbreak of tho war,
owing to tlm large purchases In America, both in Canada unci tho United
States, for war purposos. UoportB an
that many more horses will bo required this summer and that the British
Qovernment alone will he in the mur
ket in July or August for 20,000 gunners and transport horses, weighing
from 1200 lbs. up, Tho question being
asked hy the farmers Is whether thi
demand for horses will continue b
Buch uu extent, regardless of tho wai
us to make it profitable to go in fa
Increased production. In an attempt
to answer this <|tii:slion tho Kami anil
Ranch Review hus the following art
Is the breeder justified in bellev
Ing that the present tone of the lior.se
market and the prevailing high pricei
for live stock rest upon a secure fcuni
datlon? May lie look forward with
any confidence to tint next season':, oi
next year's market? Should ho pre-
pure, us against an advertised short'
age unci high prices for all classes of
farm animals, by breeding a larger
number of mares or ot cows, sheep,
hems and poultry? We are confident
that tho farmer has never been In a
more secure position than the present
as regards tho extension of Ills breeding operations, but, to enable i-i.fi to
form more* easily liis own conclusions,
tlio following facts arc* submitted:
Since the outbreak of the war,
British Remount Commission has
purchased in Canada 15,000 horses,
8,000 havo been bought hy French
contractors and 25,000 by the Canadian Department of Militia, 'i'hc
Department of Militia Is now engaged in buying an additional 1,000 head.
The British Ito mo nnt Commission lias
purchased over 700 since March and is
buying daily in Montreal. French contractors are anxious to obtain supplies
and an- arranging to buy all that are
available both iu thc East and In tiie
West. It is understood that, us a result of ther purchases already made,
army buyers ore finding it Increasingly difficult, both ill United States
and in Canada, to readily seouue the
number of horses which they require,
particularly of the type suitable for
heavy cavalry or heavy artillery.
In addition to the purchases for
army account, commercial activity
from two distinct quarters Ims exerted a very evident influence upon
tin.* Canadian horse* market during the
past three or four mouths. Since the
beginning of the year, 0,000 horses
reached tlio Winnipeg stock Yards
from Eastern Canada and 5.017 were
shipped from the* sume. yards westward, mostly to Saskatchewan, During the montlis ot .lanuary, February
und March, 1,806 horses wen* exported to tlie United State's. A few hundred wore gooil farm chunks wolghlng
from 1,800 to 1.500 Ihs. As high as
$500,000 a pair was paid for animals
possessing extra quality ami conformation. This new movement in tin
horse market is having its el'l'ect upon
prices all over Canada.
Buyers report that the bettor classes of drafters and farm chunks are
getting scarce and hard to buy. Tlu*
same holds true of good big roadsters
and saddlers. The noticeable scarcity
of good horses of these descriptions
Illustrates the met that cleniiiiiil has
already overtaken supply and makes
It very evident that all Uie really good
sound mures in the country Bhould be
bred this year, lt cannot lie too strongly emphasized, however, that they
should he mated only with strictly
high-class sires. Tin* number of
horses rejected hy army buyers clearly Indicates thut then* is no place for
the unsound horse or for the misfit.
Such animals have been, are now and
always will be a drug on the market.
Breed to tin* best If you   would  liave*
the best. Unsound or malformed mares
ure just as bad as unsound stallions.
It ts easier tc. raise a good animal than
a poor one. Manage the work this
spring in order thut the* best mare on
the farm may be regularly returned to
the horse. Next year, a good crop of
sound healthy eolts will lie us good
us a bank account. Cauada is likely
to enter shortly the commercial export
market and thut market will require
all you can produce.
Whole trend of the legislation is in ad-
jvancf of the general thought current
in Britain's colonies; tlie government
has not waited to be driven and badgered into bringing in legislation but
has led the way und in so doing has
j merited the approbation of all.
We ;ill know, but few realize, the
many difficulties that beset the premier at tlie commencement of the
session, difficulties caused not by a
powerful opposition which only calls
forth the he*st in a worthy opponent
Buch as Mr. Bowser is, but by the ever
Increasing wants of some of his own
party uiul hy the strain of self-control
tlmt hus t<> he maintained in order to
rule most effectively in one's own
i house, and to the never ceasing watch-
I fulness necessary over a party that
had such an over-powering majority;
a majority that might well lead to disaster from over-confidence,
lu looking over tlle proceedings o:
I tiie last sc-ssiou it would bu a difficult
ta*-); to pick out tho most important
ph-re of legislation; perhaps the most
popular as the Workmen's Compensation Act; as tliis lias received tlie
strong approval and endorsement of
tthe labor leaders of B.C!., we may take
it for granted tliat tlie Act is a benefl
cent one, and has, we know, received
ihe commendation of other provinces
and outside! cihservers; so ulso tlie Act
to provide free homesteads and lionie-
stead loans lor returned soldiers. Another Act to receive publie endorsu-
lieiu is tlu? Agricultural Credits Act,
an Art based upon tliat which has been
such a success iu New Zealand.
In like manner the several Acts al-
fectlng the mining industry of tlie Pro-
.ince have: received public commendation from all parties, as also the Act
.■ospocthig shipping and to make provision for nsslstanco to ship building;
in- Prohibition Act is another that
meets with general favor, and all of
these Acts have beeu introduced by
members of tlu* Qovernment.
Among tho controversial Acts may
In* montloned the Act to enable soldiers
serving in the War to exercise their
lecioral franchise, the Act to extend
tin* electoral franchise to women; und
lin; Act to borrow the sum of ten million dollars for the purpose of loaning
six millions to the Pacific Great Eastern Railway Company for the completion of its project, Time only will
prove tin* benoflconcy of this legislation, and no amount of argument will
prove or disprove Its wortii, but there
Is not tho slightest doubt that the
policy upon which this legislation Is
based is certainly constructive and as
such to be endorsed.
In contradistinction to this policy in
general may he. cited the policy of the
Opposition, as far as the paper reports
go, a purely obstructive one; it appears as IT the Liberals lost a splendid
chance to make a name for themselves; if in place of bickering and objecting and prying into past proceedings in the hope of unearthing unsavoury dealings, they had come forward
and said in the House? "We arc here to
aid you iu bringing in constructive
legislation for the benefit of the whole
province' and had introduced legislation to hack up their statement, their
position today would he absolutely different, but ns a result of the tactics
followed their policy bus been signally
liscrcditeel, and the puerile attempts
to find crooked dealings have earned
we-ll merited contempt.
There appears to be but one Act,
icmsored by a Liberal, tlmt was pass-
1 by the House; it was introduced
by Mr. Williams and related to Trades
It is a singularly easy matter to find
fault with practically any piece of
legislation, but a most difficult matter
That Earl Kitchener should have
been on lily way to lYtrograd jiidt as
the Russians wen* launching a new
offensive toward Qaltcla and the Germans were intensifying their action
against Verdun, can hardly be dismissed as a chance coincidence. For
Its protracted and costly undertaking
on the western front the German tieneral Staff must have been drawing a:
heavily as it dared upon the eastern
front for men. thereby thiunuing tlu
Hue of defence against the Russians
The. Austrlans, on their part, had re
cently prepared au offensive on tlu
Italian front, so that their eastern de
fetises also were probably much impaired. Kvldenlly Russia was not expected to resume suddenly the offensive attitude. The amazing success st
fur obtained by tin* Russlaus would indicate that tlu* Teutonic forces wen
taken unawares.

Patmore Bros.,
of Cranbrook
have to say about
cream separators
this week
IN the last ten or fifteen yean
there have heen dozens of cream
separators come on the market
which claimed to be "world beaters."
But they couldn't make good in the
hands of thc users and one by one
they dropped out of sight.
Their owners were willing to take
a risk and they lost. If you buy a
cream separator from us you run
no risk of dissatisfaction or loss.
The De Laval is tested
and time proved
Why experiment? What's the use
of taking chances with a machine
you don't know much about, or an
inferior machine, when you know
that a De Laval [a recognized everywhere as the "World's Standard."
More than thirty-five years ol experiment and expel it me have made
the De Laval pre-eminently the
best machine on the market for
the separation of cream.
If you have no separator now, or
nn inferior nm*. we can sell you
a De Laval on
such terms lhat
it will pav for itself while you
are using il.
Sooner or
later you
will buy a
homo in Moyle last week.

(By "Hull's Eye")
When iu Mount*- Play Trumps
"When in Doubt Play Trumps." This
Old rule applies to otlier things than
a card game. Has it ever struck you
that life is very much like .i game ot
of cards? That you get a hand dealt
you, and that it is up to you to do your
best wltli It? That hi life, as in cards,
when perplexed, your best course is
to play trumps. Yes, you say, that
may be so, but how am I to know what
are trumps?
What are trumps in say a game of
Bridge? You study your hand, decide
whicli Is your best, and make your bid.
Providing you are not outbid those
are trumps. Apply this to yourself.
There are more possible lines which
you can follow up in farming than in
a curd game. There you ure restricted to your choice of four suits; in
farming you have a far greater variety. And there Is tliis big difference—
that In farming you can generally pick
that line which most nearly agrees
with your own Individual bent. Every
man has a bias towards some one
thing to the more or less exclusion
of others. Therein lies your trump
But, you say, supposing my special
bent Is towards chickens, and the
chicken industry Is no longer as profitable as it was? If you were really
Inclined strongly that way you would
not ask that question. If you are really
enthusiastic over any particular Hue
of work you will find ways and means
to make that line profitable, There
Is nothing under tlle sun so far advanced thut no further progress can
be made. In every line there are unnumbered opportunities awaiting thc
man who is an enthusiast and keeps
his eyes opon anil his bruin working.
When a man makes a discovery, that
man has been playing trumps,
Again, you may say, look nt the men
who do follow their particular inclination. Look ut the* men who have
taken up sny fruit us a specialty, and
who find that they pay tin* noil ally hy
having nothing else to full hark on
when limes are had. Yes. hut the
over specialized, In farming, more
especially the one-line man always
takes a groat chance; he lias nothing
to fall back on. You must take up
moro than one line to be a successful
farmer. You do not huve to be a specialist at everything to succeed. You
may bc a good all-round man at most
brunches of fanning, and u crank on
one In particular. That is how the
money Is made.
Iu farming us hi other professions,
over-specialisation leads to narrowness of outlook. You must take? up
more than one line, if only for the
sake of a better balance. Besides, the
trouble with the over-specialised is
that he hns to rely so largely on others
for essential things. Who makes the
most money In poultry for instance,
the man who grows most of his feed
or the man who is so over-specialised
that he has to buy all bis feed? In
addition, tli'. mm with enough ground
to new i" sr T a'l it his feed has
also enough so that ho does not have
to raise chickens year after year on
tlio same little tract, with all the attendant diseases which generally follow sue-h n system. So that he Is making money both ways, not only iu having cheap food but also In the healthier birds he raises. How many fruit-
furmers live out of Hn cans, as a result
Of their over specialisation!
H so, remember these facts—Zam*
link Is by far the most widely used
balm In Canada! Why has it become
so popular? Because It *»:als sores,
cures sktu diseases, and does what is
claimed for it. Why not let it heal
your sore?
Remember lhat Zam-Buk ls altogether different to the ordinary oint*
ments. Mott of these consist of animal
fats. Zam-Buk contains no trace of
any animal fat, or any mineral matter.
It Is absolutely herbal.
Remember that Zam-Buk is at the
same timo healing, soothing, and
antiseptic. Kills poison Instantly, and
nil harmful germs. It ls suitable alike
for recent Injuries ond diseases, and
for chronic sores, ulcers, etc. Test
low different and superior Zam-Iuk

BOo, box. Use nlso Zam-Buk Soup.

Such cases arc' not the result of
playing trumps, hut of over-bidding on
the trump hand, it's no use bidding
eight when six Is about all you are
sure of getting, Such a courso Is Inviting disaster. When In doubt piny
trumps, hut don't play them for moro
than they are worth.
A   MOTHIKS   Illl
Bead at a meeting of the Cranbrook
Women's Institute hy Mrs. H, II. McClure.
We have heard so much about a
Mother's duty to her Home, her Children, ('hurch and Country, tluit very
often we forget that there are many
duties she owes to herself, and by neglecting herself, very often fulls short
of what she might accomplish for
Mother is the most important and
tho most neglected member of the
Mother is the centre of the home,
on her devolves the duties of running
the household, and making the home
atmosphere She is the pivot on which
everything swings.
If anyone has an acl.e or a pain
mother heals it; if anyone has u torn
stocking, mother darns it; in sickness
It's mother who moistens the parched
lips and cools the throbbing brow. She
Is every wliere, and everything, to
".Nobody knows the work it takes
To keep the home together,
Nobody knows the steps It takes.
Nobody—but Mother."
To accomplish all this a mother
owes lt to herself to keep in good
health, and If she would have It, she
must study and practise the means of
obtaining and keeping it—by planning
her work every duy so that she can
have the proper rest and sleep, fresh
air, change of scene and diversion,
thut Is needed so that at sixty she will
have all the grace and accomplishments In a greater degree than she
had at twenty-five,
No mother can start too soon to
train her child to be Independent, by
teaching It to wait upon itself, and
also to do little errands for Its mother
is not only good for tbe child but In
time will greatly lessen tlie duties devolving on the mother, but as mothers
we all know how much easier it is to
preach how a child should he trained,
than lt Is to put It Into practice. Yet
the fact remains, that a mother has no
right to do for the child that which
the child Is capable of doing for Itself, for In doing so we deprive tbem
of the right to live their own life, to
learn and to grow,
There is no mother but what likes
to see her boys and girls liave a good
time and enjoy themselves when
young, and it Is right that tbey should,
but it Is also a mother's duty to see
that along with this enjoyment, there
Is mixed In a fair share of the responsibilities of tho home. This brings to
my mind the picture of a home where
the daughter's birthday fell on a
Saturday, and she wns looking forward to having her young friends
spend the evening with her. The
dainty lunch which tlie mother waB
expected to prepare meant a lot of
extra work to her already over-taxed
strength, yet when the daughter expressed the desire to spend the afternoon with one of her girl friends, and
asked her mother If she would Iron a
certain elaborate white dress for her,
ns she wanted to wear it thut evening.
Her mother without a protest let her
! go. Of course It was very pleasant
for the daughter- but her pleasure
was short-lived; on returning home
she found her mother hnd fallen to the
'floor In the net of ironing her dress
and for days her life was dlspalred of.
' All mothers naturally deny themselves; lt Is an Instinct bred In them
through long centuries, but to toil und
work and slave all day and often long
Into the night, so as to bc nble tu
grunt their children every whim and
desire tu regard to clothing, pleasure,
education etc., Is carrying self-denial
to the point of martyrdom, and makes
nervous wrecks of mothers, and lays
I unsteady foundations for future
| Then again mothers often become
slaves to the appetite of their families.
Tt ts her duty to provide, or see that
they are provided with a plentiful supply of good nourishing food, but they
would rather have you at the table
enjoying it with them, than that you
should spend your strength cooking
six dishes for supper when three
would do. If you cannot get ull your
work done today, don't kill yourself
trying to do It; remember there is
nnother day coming.
A mother morn thnn anyone requires somo rest and relaxation
every day If she can get It, If not at
least once a week, aud It ls very desirous that she should get away for
a (inin from the cares of home once

as it is becoming very difficult to obtain goods at any price
and as a result the quality is being reduced
which she will bring back will more

Important as it is that a mother
should conserve her strength, It is
also very Important that she should
maintain her mental vitality, by carefully keeping her mind well informed
on all questions of the day, also by
cultivating the acquaintance of intelligent people and reading good books
and magazines so that she will be able
to influence and enlighten her children on any subject which perplexes
them. It hns been said. "The Mother
of a family is not expected to 'accomplish things', the raising of a healthy,
happy family is the 'things' she has
Most important of all Is the necessity of her so living In close touch
with her Heavenly Father that she
can with serene countenance go forward from day to day doing faithfully
tho work which comes to her band,
praying always for strength and guidance which she so much needs to do
her duty faithfully.
