than anything else to help along

The field crops competitions of
the Farmers' Institutes have
also been a great success. There
were over 1,000 entries, three
times as many as last year. The
spirit of competition engendered
by these competitions does excellent work in making men
think and thus leading them to
the adoption of improved methods.
This winter the Agricultural
Department intends to carry out
9hort courses in connection with
the different phases of agriculture in all parts of the Province.
These courses will be held under
the direction of the Farmers'
Institutes, under the control of
the department.

that we have become n little demoralised hy so many excitements

Hence we would like it to be

the city of Georges to be, who
fully agree with the Herald. We
hold that a part — and the most
important part — of newspaper
work is to express the will of the
people; nnd the Herald is a peoples
paper.   We also respect the opinion
iw, nearer as it must yet come to W those who differ with us, and we
all, we nre still reading about it do not expect to scold them for so
under the influence of the old, old differing
habit. The old habit is this; thnt
what you see in the newspapers always concerns So in eh oily else.
It deals with far-off events, and if
by chance ii mentions your own

Thnt will come to nn end. It
has not done so yet because only a
part of the nation is engaged in the
war. In France one paper has a
page of small advertisements for
missing relatives. Are they dead?
Are they wandering? Were they
burned in their homes? Did the
Germans drive them before their
troops into battle? Are they captives in the land of the barbarians?
When you and I ask questions like
this ahout our own kith and kin we
shall not look on the war news n< n

the great war machine and forgot that the world still belongs
to the brave and the daring.

On one page of the Tribune of

published the objects of the Fund in
its issue of (k't. 17th. But in case
it mny have been overlooked by
some of our readers, ve here repeat
it: This organization is empowered

There nre many ways of expressing patriotism, love of country and
race, and the Herald nnd its friends
have as much right in their expression of it as others.
We nre pleased to know on the
whole that n discussion hns been
possible of the Herald's article. It
is evidence thnt we are rend and the
expressions conveyed to us by our
readers, whether in approval or

shells bursting with monotonous j
regularity over the trenches the |
order  was  suddenly   given  to
charge.    Our  soldiers got  up, j
warily,   towards   the   enemies' |
lines, seeking all the cover the i
ground  affords  them.    During
long hours they have lain in their i
sodden burrows exposed  to an j
insistent  fire.     Nerves are  a- j

Suddenly the sound of loud j

Racked by emotions, one of our

Machines have no reply to such
zeal of passion; never yet was

away broken and discomfited, his

The sound of that terrible laughter rings through lhe quiet valley
an everlasting menace.
The great war machine has

revealed as a mere balancing of

One hundred thousand inhabitants of Jerusalem are facing
starvation, according to Samuel
Edelman, American vice-consul
in that city, who arrived at New
York on the steamer Ancona.
Two-thirds of the residents of
Jerusalem are Jews, Mr. Edelman said. For many years they
have depended upon their earnings from tourists and upon
charity for support, and the war
has cut off subsistence.
There are no industries in the
city and little cultivation of the
surrounding territory.   The cold

tiiient will fall under the rule of
thut despotism, with the complete destruction of modern civilization.
I believe now is the time when
the Government of the United
States should make it plain to
the Government of Germany
that the United States holds
Germany responsible for the
war, and, further, lhat this Government intends to lend its financial and moral aid to the cause of
the Allies and humanity.
It is  useless for me in this
communication to call attention
to the treatment of Belgium by
the Prussians  or to  recite the
other brutal and barbarous acts
of this enemy of civilization.
The  important  point is that
the United States should,  as an
act of self-preservation at this
time, lend all possible aid to the
perpetuation and strengthening
of government for and by the
people.   In the light of the facts
and  conditions,   as we  all see
them now,  it is,  to my mind, a
crime for this country to continue
a policy of strict neutrality, The
support of the Allies would be
an act of charity to the (lerman
nation in assisting in the extermination of the monster.   It is I just suffered a  big reverse, for ihe
