There is more urgent need for food
production today—tills year—than at

and are dependent to a certain extent
on the production on the American
continent to relieve their serious food
problems. Owing to transportation
conditions every ton of food stuffs
grown In Canada is worth to the
Motherland two tons grown In India
or four tons grown in Australia, and
if tliis country does not raise a big
crop this year ber Allies will suffer,
weakened, If not paralyzed.
Realizing the serious situation exist- j
lug, the "Soldiers of Hie Soil" Movement was launched by the Cannda j

For the housewives who have been
using drippings br chicken fat in
place of butter, here is a way to make
use of thc scraps left over when beef,
pork or chicken  has been  rendered.
Grind the scraps through the meat I
chopper, then use them as follows In i
cookies:
One cup brown sugar; two eggs;
one cup ground scraps; salt and
vanilla; two level teaspoons baking
powder sifted with two cups flour.
A very few walnuts crushed with this I
preserves the illusion that they are!
made entirely of crushed nuts.
Fried onions, served on a platter'
and covered with slices of hurd-builed;
egg and grated cheese, make a palatable, nutritious and inexpensive substitute for meat.
Here is a graham pudding that Is
as delicious as It Is patriotic:
One quarter cup shortening; one,
half cup molasses; one half cup milk;
one egg; one and one half cups flour: j
one half teaspoon soda; one teaspooni
salt aud one cup of fruit; steam two1
hourn. Serve with a caramel sauce.
This will serve  plght or ten people.)

in the report of the Board of Trade

DAYLIGHT SAVING HAS COME
TO STAY
Daylight Saving is now an accomplished fact iu Canada.   In CranbrooK
the new time came  into    existence
'■ without any of   the   Inconveniences
: 1 redlctedi the advantages of un ex*ra
hour's daylight after work being gsn-
crally appreciated and it is quIM sate
io forcast that we will never go back
, to the  pre-war time  schedule  after
\ peace Is restored.   Daylight saving Is
bore to stay.
1 In England the saving in the use of
fuel and artificial light for tlie sum-
I mer months has been estimated as
! equivalent to SLi.ynft.oon, Franco has
I effected a saving of fuel of fully 10
! per cent
Daylight saving means increased
efficiency in the Improvement of the
health, morals and welfare of tbe
community, li means nn hour extra
for gar don Ing, for production of food,
bills for electric light will be cut
down, and out of door recreation will
he stimulated.
It makes one wonder why wc have
been losing this hours daylight all our
lives.
CONTROL YOUR APPETITE
Wc publish elsewhere in this issue
tiie new regulations just issued by the
Canada Food Board. It is inconceivable that there is any human being in
existence who fs so enamoured with
Ills stomach as to oppose the modest
restrictions called for. Too easy by-
far. The Allies are looking to Canada to save the perilous food situation. Food is in nbundance in Canada and there is plenty, nol only to
keep the wolf from our own doors but
even to save the situation for tlie Allies, provided we conserve It by a
moderate degree of unselfishness.
The cry from the trenches, from the
munition factories, from tiie shipyards, from the millions of our own
race who are giving themselves
Wholly and unreservedly to the cnuse
for our freedom as well as their own,
is flung across lhe sea, "Give us this
day our daily bread". We are safe
and secure because of this sacrifice.
Is It much that they ask? To control
our appetites that they may live—to
fight on for us to Victory and Peace.
Tho issue of tho battles during the
next few days will be of far reaching
coiiseinieiices and will be awaited
witli deep anxiety; to hold thc enemy
now Is to defeat him and it Is certain
he will throw thc whole weight of his
enormous forces against the British
line In his effort to break through,
but remembering tlie Marno and with
the knowledge that the French and
American Armies are speeding to
their support we can feel assured that
tlie British Army will obey Field Marshal Hnlg to the last man.

WHAT'S THE   MATTER   WITH
IRELAND?
It is lamentable to think that the
British leaders should be harassed
with tbe Irish problem in an Intensified form at this critical stage of the
world's history. What would be the
good of Home Rule to Ireland U Germany wins the war? The Irish would
then have German home-rule and
they know, or should know, what thai
means. Ask the Russians. We wonder
If the Irishman has lost all sense of
proportion. Whether his hntred of
British rule Is so contorted ns to
make him oblivious of the danger to
his country.
It Is doubtful If the findings of the
Irish Convention will help the unhappy situation nnd the effect of Lloyd
George's bold suggestion remains to
be seen. Is the Irish Sinn Felner and
Irish Nationalist such a favored species of tlie human race that he can
expect to receive the protection of
the British Army and be exempt from
the Conscription which creates that
Army, or can It be that be prefers
German rule?
If lie were wise he would be willing
to relegate Home Rule lo the hack-
ground while tho war lusts and lay its
foundations on solid rock by fighting
with all his strength and numbers
against the Arch Enemy of Home
Rule--ihe Kaiser.
That is the way the women won tht
franchise, but it Is too much to expect
of the Irishman.
THE IRISH SITUATION
Apparently the Irish quostlon is to be
determined. We use the word determined rather than settled because the
question of a settlement Is still very,
very doubtful.
And it is this very clement of doubt
which lias become 'the! .renl bane,
rather than the question of Home
Rule itself. It has caused a tendency
toward impatience to develop In the
minds of those who want to see the
mutter disposed of in one way or another, fnr it la safe to say thai it is
this question which has done more
than any other to create suspicion ami
division In old country politics, Much
progressive legislation has been made
impossible and some retrogressive
measures have found their wny to
Mil statute book, because of this distrust and Busplclon, which, in tho
final analysis is, sad to say, religious
rather than political.
Whatever we may think of tlie wisdom of Lloyd George, we cannot but
admire his courage, If courage it finally proves to be.
We British people have a peculiar
trait of waiting until the result of an
action   is  determined,  before   we  decide its quality,   We must therefore
I wait before we render our verdict.
There nre many who cannot see
[anything else lu the premier's nation
t except the counsel of darkness, be-
I Moving as they do thnt It will but add
j one more terrific burden to the already overtrled military staff of the
, nation.
j Bul It is a gamble ami tile premier
has taken his throw and Irelnnd must
' throw next.
There is a subtle psychology that
I tends  to  put  the  odds  In   favor  of
I the premier, however, in that he acted
first, and it  is this:    With decision.
| defini'e and unequivocal, there is a
1 moral force which works silently and
; powerfully.   It injects a question into
j the  opposing  mind,  as   to   whether
j there may not be other factors In the
yame which have not been made public and which may he more than wns
i bargained for.
Confidence on the one side begets
! n corresponding doubt on the other
oftentimes. The question that the
i world therefore now waits the answer
to Is, which of the parties have the
greater confidence.
Get that garden ready for a bumper
crop of spuds
Joseph Martin, that political star of
meteoric brilliancy, has made his positively last appearance on the B. C,
stage. He intends to again cast his
lot with the British Labor Party. If
we have seen the last of Joe we shall
al least hear of him, but last appearances arc sometimes elastic.
CANADA    FOOD
BOARD
REGULATIONS
REMEMBER THE MARNE
During the titanic conflict which ls
now raging on the Western Front, the
thoughts of all free peoples turn towards the brave British Army fighting
with its back to thc wall with grim
tenacity and determination to check
the overwhelming forces which aro
being thrust against it.
It recalls the first few weeks nf the
war when Ihe Kaiser ordered his conquering hosts to crush tbe "contempt-
able little army," the terrible rttreat
from Mons and the intense feeling of
relief when the tide was turned with
the ever memorable battle of the
Mame which compelled the rttreat of
the German Armies almost at the
gates of Paris.
Once again the destruction of the
British Army is the great object of
the German High Command, and tbe
present conflict is even more terrible
in its intensity but the British soldier
today is of the same breed and stamina and he may he relied upon to fight
with the same dogged determination
and to be ready at tbe right time to
hurl the enemy back.
The present situation is undoubtedly serious, even critical In the
extreme. Field Marshal Halg's
orders that positions must be held at
all costs makes It clear that the Germans have reached a point In their
advance where important stragetlc
positions are in danger and lines of
communications threatened; the Canadian forces nt Lens are also in Jeopardy and should the whole of Mob-
pfiN'H Ridge fall into enemy hands we
must Anticipate their withdrawal

The Flavour Lasts
A Truck for the Farmer
FARM equipment which will effect a time and labor-
saving, and therefore a money-saving, must be carefully considered by every good farmer now-a-days.
The farm wagon, which for years was the most useful
of all farm equipment, is now being replaced on the best
farms by a sturdy, dependable motor truck. The truck
will haul any farm product—fruit, grain, vegetables,
stock, fertilizer, or wood—around the farm, or to the
town or city many miles distant, in half the time, and
at a much lower cost
The Ford One-Ton truck is a rapid, economical and
very serviceable means of transport. One of these on
your farm will save you weeks or time in a single season
and will enable you to pass through a crisis of labor shortage with less difficulty.
The Ford truck is supplied as a chassis only. This permits you to select any of the many body styles especially
designed for the Ford truck and already on the market.
Thus you can mount the one which suits your individual
requirements.

Elko entertained three of her returned soldiers Wednesday evening
to one of tiie most delightful .social
events ever held In the old historic
burg. Tin affair wan engineered by
Mrs. A. J. Mott who got every citizen
interested, mid nu.de It a big family
affair, uud the beauty and chivalry
turned out en mtuse to do honor to
tlie brave men who hud done their
bit. By the kind permission of the
Officer Commanding the 107th at Mor-
rlssey the band came down and supplied the music which wus a feature
In Itself and very much appreciated
by all present. Tiie Hall was beautifully decorated with tlage und bunting
and the floral decorations were exquisite and the occasion made the
happiest possible. The fair ladies hiul
on their new Easter dresses. Ray 0
HirU was M. C. and with railroad
promptness started tho ball at 8.30,
and the merry crowd hesitated, lame-
ducked, waltzed, Wi nni pegged, and
one-stepped, but Fred Wlldman's ping
pons two-step sot everybody golni*
and coming. It was heaven with the
cream left on, and put your back-bone
where your wish-bone Is now. The
Waldo crowd was so enthused with it
that they advertised a dance for the
Friday following. U'ildman said thnt
dance would drive the poison out of
your system. The waxed floor shont
like a mirror und Ihe Ladies ull looked as sweet, us the ladles In Laura
, Jean Lihl-y's novels. At midnight an
excellent supper wus served, cakes
that would really taste good to an
angel, sandwiches that would put
flesh on u mine prop, coffee with renl
cream beyond reproach, and the service a miracle of speed and politeness.
During supper there were speeches
by tho returned men, who were Lieut.
C. J. Lewis who certainly made the
speech of the evening and was well
received, Sergt. N. Brewer, wearing
two sold stripes on his left arm, and
I'te. Tom Hardman. Bandmaster
Chorlton gave two 'cello solos which
wire worth Roing miles to hear and
worth three times the price of admission und then some, The Morris-
sey contingent made far.t friends in
Elko and every citizen of Elko thanks
them for the brilliant success they
mane it an Jim Thlstlebeak remarked,
hnd It not been for the boys from tht

such dancing and prancing wns
never seen in tlie nld historic burg before, aud the dancing lasted until
after four o'clock when the beauteous

Fight with Food
A Call to the Whole Dominion for the Utmost
Effort to Produce Food for our
Soldiers and Allies
OUR ALLIES arc desperately short of
food. In the midst of plenty ourtelvet we
must face the item reality of England on
shorter rations than the hat been for over a
hundred years, and France with only three days'
food reserve. Even from their present small
supplies they are saving Italy from collapse
through hunger.
Sitict shippitif mutt b* conctntrsted on the thorttit
■routes, Canada and the United States mutt continue to
be practically the only source of supply.
Canada must provide wheat and meat In Increasing
quantities to meet a situation that imperils the issues of
the war.
Men who can be spared for work on the farms must
serve in this way. Those who are obliged to remain in
the city or town can at least raise vegetables in their
gardens or on vacant lots.
Every effort will be made to see that labor it forthcoming to harvest the maximum crops that farmers can
produce.
An increased spring acreage in wheat and other grain
is vitally needed.
Stock raitert are atked to provide the greatest possible
production of meat, especially pork.
Starvation   is   threatening   our   Allies.   Everyone   in
Canada mutt fight by doing his or her utmost to produce and to conserve food.

CANADAS PRIDE
CANADIANS have good reason to be proud of the position Canada
holds in the world today. This pride is justified by the activities of
her people, by her unlimited natural resources, by her splendid institutions, and particularly by her Industries.
Facts about the immensity of
some Canadian industries would
astonish most people.
These industries, when viewed
in the light of comparison with
other countries, are simply tremendous.
The growth of any industry is
limited to the number of people
it can serve, and that is a fact not
often properly appreciated when
Canadian industries are compared
to similar enterprises in, say, the
United States.
For example: the population
of the United States exceeds
100,000,000. Opportunity for industries there is almost unlimited.
ln comparison, Canada with its
seven million population is a small
country—yet in spite of this comparatively small population, Canada possesses several industries
which ih actual size rank among
the biggest in the world.
In shocmaking, one Canadian
concern lias developed a volume
of business and a service to the
Canadian   people   which   is   not
equalled by another shoe manufacturer anywhere in the world.
This concern, if located in the
United States, would rank as one
of the twelve largest out of some
two thousand shoe manufacturers
there.
While the sales of the largest
shoe manufacturer in the United
States -selling lo the American
people -do not exceed twenty-five
cents per capita per year, the sales
of Ames Holden McC ready to the
Canadian people last year were
approximately eighty cents per
capita.
In a comparative sense, therefore, this Canadian concern is
greater than the foremost American shoe manufacturer in the
United States.
Thus Ames Holden McCready
truly merit the distinction of their
title ''Shoemakers to the Canadian
Nation.''
Just imagine for a moment the
enormous work of supplying a large
portion of Canada's 7,000,000 people with its boots and shoes:
—if requires—huge up-to-date factories equipped with the most
modern machinery able to turn
out 8,000 pairs of shoes a day.
-r-iV requires—a variety of nearly
800 different styles to meet the
requirements of all classes of people, for different grades, shapes and
kinds of shoes.
—it requires—the maintenance of
six large distributing branches in
principal cities from coast tc coast,
and in these are carried over a
million dollars worth of stock,
ready for quick delivery to retailers.
—it requires—sixty travelling salesmen to call on the retail trade,
because out of approximately
10,000 retail dealers who sell shoes
in Canada, more than 5.000 handle
A.H.M. Shoes.
—it requires—many other details
of organization and equipment,
but this brief outline will give you
some slight idea of thc part that
this great shoe concern is playing fn
the business of supplying footwear
to the Canadian people.
You will be interested in these facts, because the next time you buy footwear
bearing the A.H.M. Brand, yoa will know that they are the product of a large and
efficient organization making shoes which will in every ease give you th* greatest
value for your money.
