RATIONING.
A despatch from Victoria says:
" 'We the advisory board of Women's Institutes of British Columbia, strongly recommend that
an official system of rationing
should be immediately enforced
in our province, particularly in
such commodities as beef, pork,
sugar and flour,' was the wording of a strong resolution forwarded to the food controller
from the advisory board in the
final session at the parliament
buildings."
But there is one point which
we think, would render such a
proceeding rather impracticable.
The population of Canada is very
largely rural, and there are thousands of farmers and settlers
living miles out who are accus
tomed to go to town once a week,
or maybe at less frequent inter
vals, for supplies to last them
until their next trip to town
Would it be fair to them to make
them travel oftener in order to
stand in a queue to purchase their
daily allowance when they should
be on their farms endeavoring
to increase production? The
country might save food by ra
tioning, but it would lose food in
the proportion of time lost by the
faimers in coming to town. In
Britain rationing is effective because the major portion of the
people live in cities, and, like all
city-dwellers, have been used to
buying their food as they needed
it from the store next door or in
the next block. But in Canada
conditions are vastly different to
those in Britain, and great caro
and thought should be exercised
before any such rationing plan
as suggested above is put into
effect in this country.
Geo. Wall, of the McClary
Mfg. Co , was in town during

Fox, but he had always succeeded in eluding them until Alex,
got busy.

Dupes and Duplicity
Just what stage the proceedings
in Petrograd have reached at any
given time is not now a matter of
great importance. The important
thing is that the Hun diplomats
have been instructed to arrange a
truce which will leave Russia living in a fool's paradise until the
war-makers are ready to strike
another blow for the conquest of
Russia. That the Russians in their
present demented condition will
be able to see the trap that is
laid for them, or to effectively
resist the manoeuvre, is hopeless.
The future of Russia rests with
the Allies, whom Russia is leaving to fight the battle of freedom
without its aid.���Ex.
Canada's Woodpile
Canada holds the only large
forest in the whole British Empire. Australia, New Zealand
and South Africa have sacrificed
most of their original timber to
the fire fiend and ruthless exploitation. These facts emphasize
Canada's strategic position as
containing the only "wood pile"
available to the Empire, except
those of Russia. Sixty per cent
of John Bull's huge timber demand is supplied by the Russian
people today, for the British
Isles provide only one log out of
eight actually needed for home
use. What part Canada's forests
will play in British trade after
the war is problematical, but
there is no lack of prophets to
predict that every square mile of
growing timber will double in
value under the strain of post
bellum demand from the devastated districts of Europe. Meanwhile Canadian governments can
prepare to take full advantage of
increasing timber values by thorough fire protection and scientific
control of wasteful lumbering.

in the post.
Keep Chickens
and They Will
Help Keep You
'Keep chickens'is a slogan that
should appeal to nearly every
householder in Canada. Thescraps
from the table of an average household will provide most of the food
necessary to keep half a dozen
hens in flourishing condition, and
these, if properly housed and
cared for, will reciprocal with a
a surprisingly large number of
fresh eggs for the family table.
Fifteen dozen eggs per hen per
year is by no means an impos-
production.
Nearly every back yard is big
enough to accommodate half a
dozen hens, and they are most
cheerful and agreeable backyard
tenants. The far-seeing householder will put,up his little henhouse as soon as the snow is gone
and will make arrangements for
his stock of hens at once.
Canada Stands
Third In Silver
Production
A compilation bv the National
City Bank of New York shows
that the silver production of the
United States is now double that
of Mexico and three times that
of Canada, although we still hold
third rank among the silver-producing countries of the world.
Of the 172,383,000 ounces of silver produced in the world in 1916
the United States produced 72,-
833,000 ounces, or 42 per cent of
the world's total. The production of silver in Canada in 1916
was 26,669,172 fine oances, as
against 25,625,960 in 1915.
The output for 1917 will probably be 30,000,0000 ounces.
Two Above All
If Germany is beaten,and Russia splits up into a nnmber of
v^eak states, it would seem that
the dangers which once threatened the British Empire had
been laid al rest until such time
as the strength of Canada and
Australia had been greatly increased. Complete defeat of
Germany would leave the United
States.a friendly power, the only
country really in a class with
the British Empire. It was supposed, prior to the war, that the

On Growing Hogs
It takes 12 bushels of No. 2
corn to make 100 lbs. of average
live hog under average farm conditions. This is the finding of
the commission appointed by the
United States food controller to
investigate the cost of hog production and to suggest plans for
stimulating it. The figures given above are based on a survey
of ten years' production, ending
1916. The commission reported
that, to bring production back to
normal, it would be necessary to
pay at least the equivalent value
of 13.3 bushels of corn for 100
lbs. of average hog, and recommended  that a minimum emer-

mileage
20 to 25 miles to a gallon of
gasoline is a frequent occurrence with the Ford car. One
man (name on request) reports
an average of 33 miles per gallon for 20,000 miles. Surely
this is a record that few, if
any other makes of cars, ever
equalled.
It demonstrates the economy
of owning and driving a Ford.
You can average 1000 miles
more travel on Ford-size tires.
The saving on oil and repairs is proportionately large.   The
name  "Ford" stands for lowest cost and greatest service.
"Many keen market operators
look for a good mining market
in 1918. They point out that the
demand for gold and silver and
the cheaper metals was never so
high. The outlook for mining
corporations of all kinds was
probably never so good. It is
true that the shortage of labor
has caused a good deal of apprehension, but to a large extent
this has been anticipated by the
installing of improved machinery.
It is a fact that today a good deal
larger output is possible fro.n
the mines of Northern Ontario
than even a year ago with the
same quota of men. Moreover,
operation is in some respects
more economical; and every last
ounce of metal is now being extracted from the ore, as the new
processes make possible the utilization of low grade ores which
were formerly rejected," says an
eastern exchange.
The sale price of canned salmon
depends more on the color of the
meat of the fish than upon its
flavor.
Because the color is pale, the
best-flavored salmon on the Pacific coast is least in demand upon
the market. The inferior salmon,
of a rich red color.brings the best
price and takes the lead because
of iti color, this having no relation to excellence of flavor or
edible superiority.
