The demand for socks has become  more urgent than ever. The committee cannot undertake to supply wool  free, but those willing to knit    can  buy it at wholesale prices at the Temple Rooms.    Would it not be possible  in some of the country  districts to  card and  spin the wool  in the  old  way?    Many of the fleeces have not  yet been sold, and unless things have  changed,   the price received is low.  One spinner could  keep  many knitters supplied.    The authorities are so  anxious to get these that they are -being sent by parcel post.

CANADIAN PAPER MILLS  One effect of the attempted blockade of Briish ports by Germans submarines has been to curtail shipments of paper and pulp from Norway and Sweden, and Canadian-mjlls  expect to experience much the same  quickening in demand which came  in the early months .of the war. As  yet the situation has not developed  much actual new business, but owing to the freer position in shipping  betAveen America and the United  Kingdom, the Canadian mills, it is believed, Avill benefit materially before long.

I staj'ed  of a consignment of twenty- awhile, and then had to get  nasfiS back to my own post.    About 5  o'clock I was going down to see  him again, but as the Germans  were still shelling our trench,  and- there was a dangerous open  space to pass, they would  not let me go over.    In fifteen  minutes word was brought to  me that he had passed away. At  dusk I crossed over and had . a  farewell    look    at   him.    The  stretcher bearer   told   me   he  stood it "like a man" and bore  up bravely to the last.    He pass  ed away very peacefully, in fact  so peacefully that they did not  think he was dead until they  felt his pulse.  The next night they buried  him near headquarters, and I  was present at the burial service. All the boys felt very bad  when they heard the news of  his death, as he was thought a  lot of amongst his comrades.  Poor Eddie! How we shall all  miss him!���������From his sorrowing friend at the front.���������D. O.  Eddie Lloyd was one of five  boys living together at Geo.  Hayes' ranch, viz: Geo. Hayes  W. A. Ferguson. Eddie Lloyd, A  C. Dudden and ���������. Pegram.  "Fergy" was killed whilst he  was bringing in a wounded cor.  rade in the open, (for which he  deserves the Victoria Cross)  Eddie Lloyd was killed in the  trenches by a shell; Pegram  was wounded early in the war;  AC. Dudden is in the hospital  and Geo. Hayes is with the C.  M. R.. All these boys joined  the ranks, and when last heard  from "Fergy" and Pegram were  sergeants and Eddie Lloyd had  passed his examinations for a  commission.  To show Eddie's keenness-  he had just returned from Victoria and went with a party of  Abbotsfordites to Mission City  to see the other boys off to Val-  cartier. When the train got in  he immediately went to the adjutant and enlisted and pulled  out with the other boys.  The above is a fine record for  a family of bachelors.  for the knitting at the Temple Building.  When we look at the casualty lists  and read of the neAV expeditionary  forces being despatched, Ave must  realize, if we think at. all, that the  need of supplies ot oil kinds for tho  soldiers, Avell or ill, is urgent. To  provide these is the part of Avomen  at home, and no one is exempt from  the duty of doing her share.���������Colonist. ��������� -.-���������'.���������  And the Fathers Will  Declare'.Unto  the Sons  "As long as the brave deeds retain the noAver to fire the blood of  Anglo Saxons; the stand made by  the Canadians in those desperate  days will be told by fathers to their  sons, for in the military records of  Canada this defence Avill shine as  brightly as in the records of the  British army the stubborn valor  .with which; Sir James MacConncl  arid the guards beat back from  Hougoiunont the division of Foy and  the army corps of Reille.

BATES, -       - Editor and Proprietor  NEW WESTMINSTER MARKET  IS INCREASING  The provincial government passed an act at the last sitting  of the house at Victoria, to lend money to the farmer and the  fruit grower. It has not yet been put into active operation.  When it does however there need never be the same cry for  shortage of money in dull times, for the people will then feel  that they will have to maintain the good name of the province  and spend the money at .home���������buy home made goods instead  of sending to a foreign country, or buying foreign goods in our  own home market.  For years millions of dollars were sent out of the.country for  the necessaries of life. Had .there been an active campaign  carried on by our governments with a view to inducing settlers  upon the land many of these millions would have been kept in  the country to develop it. Our soil is fertile; our climate, while  perhaps not the best in the world, is just good enough in B. C.  to make people healthy and like to live here, and all that is  required is enough active interest in making old Mother Earth  produce enough to feed the coast, cities.

Wheat is estimated to occupy this year a total area of 12,896,-  000 acres, which is more by 1,662.500 acres or 14.8 per cent,  than the area sown for 1914, and more by 2,602.100 acres, or  25 per cent, than the area harvested in 1914, the area sown last  year having been reduced by 939.600 acres, the estimated aggregate of total failures through the winter-killing ofl fall wheat  (211,500 acres) and through drought affecting spring-wheat  ((728,100 acres). Not only is the wheat area this year, under  the double stimulus of patriotic impulse and high prices, 25 per  cent, in excess of last year's harvested area; but it is also the  largest area ever- sown to wheat in Canada. As previously reported in the government press bulletin, the area to be harvested  of fall sown wheat is 1,208,700 acres, the balance of 11,687-300  acres having been sown this spring. "Whilst every.-province  shows an increase in the wheat area it is the three north-west  provinces which preponderate in the national effort to produce  more wheat. The total area sown in wheat in these provinces  is 11.659,700 acres, an increase over last year's harvested area  of 2,324,300 acres or 25 per cent. Rather more than half the  total wheat area of Canada is in the single province of Saskatchewan.  Oats are estimated to occupy a total area in Canada of 11,-  427,000 acres; barley 1.518,00; other grains possibly, a million  and a half acres;  hay and clover covers 7,788,400 acres.  The anticipated yield is estimated at a high percentage this  year, according to present weather conditions.

"When   the     history  of  this  war  comes to be Avritten in all its phases  not the least absorbing chapter will  dear with the influence of medicinal  science on the fields of battle" writes  a correspondent in France.  "It Avas Avith this thought that I  Avent the other day to the Pasteur  Insitute in Paris to.see a man whose  life Avork has had a profound offect in  the pre\rention of disease.. This is  Professor Metchnikoff, whom all the  scientists would acknowledge, I am  sure to be the greatest living bacteriologist.'  "I found the old man alone in  his laboratory. He raised his hands  when I asked him to tell me something, about the health of the French  army and the methods adopted to  keep the troops free from disease.  "My business is not with war," he  said: '1 have seen nothing of that  horror, and, as you see, I stay in my  laboratory studying my microbes."  For a little while tho great scientist spoke of the waste of human life  and this setback to civilization.

J, HENDERSON & SONS  MiawMigEgniagsaraaM^^  slaughter may be made more rapid  "Out of all this misery, however,''  said the Professor, "one thing is good  ���������the health of our armies in tho  field is remarkable, apart from .typhoid, which is diminishing rapidly,  owing to the system of inoculation  organized by your English doctors.  There is nothing in the nature of an  epidemic, which might, have been expected from a war Avith so many corp  ses encumbering the ground. This,  j is a victory for science though put  to a sad'use.  It was not only from M. Metchnikoff but also from Professor Roux,  director of the Pasteur Institute, that  I obtained- the .'assertion that .the  health of-the British'and French, armies is wonderful,' considering , the  hardships of- the campaign, and the  immensity-of the operations.  They both agreed,"that .this war has  entirely reversed the. statistics obtained from all previous wars?.        ' ���������*:-���������  "Formerly," said.Professor Roux,  "the number of.'killed and wounded  ���������&&sm!8xa&$E&m | was comparatfyely/insignificant, compered with the "number of. those who  died or were put out of., action by  disease. ' This was seen, for example  in the South African war, .when-.the  army was swept by enteric fever. But  in the present war tlie very opposite  has taken place.' The number of  killed and wounded is enormously  greater than that of men stricken  with disease.  "This is great paradox and great  irony of modern science. While scientific genius has brought the machinery of death and destruction to astonishing perfection, so that' men are  slain or wounded in prodigious numbers, so has science discovered neAV  means of keeping soldiers free from  disease and healing them after their  wounds."  As far'as the prevention of disease  is concerned, the extraordinary immunity from epidemic of the French  and British armies is a yicory for  the Pasteur Institute and men like  Metchnikoff and Roux. The principles  of Pasteur and the results of all  scientific research in this great school  of bacteriology have been put into  practical use in this war with triumphant success.     ; *  ;8SB4  The question is often asked, "What  do good roads cost?"  If this question were put in another form, viz: "What do bad roads  cost?" the answer would bring.home  to the people of Canada what they  are paying sacrifice to poor transportation facilities���������this, in addition  to the discomfort and dissatisfaction  of having to travel over them.  One of the chief causes of the  young people leaving the farm is the  lack of good roads. Rough and  muddy roads retard social life, especially, when associated with the  unpleasantness of driving, is the fact  that the equipment becomes mud bespattered and requires constant wash  ing. To avoid these and other inconveniences farmers and their families remain at home, more or less in  isolation, and when tho first opportun  ity arises, many of them leave the  farm. There is but one remedy for  this isolated condition���������bymeans of  good roads, farmers and ther families  must be placed in touch with the social advantages of the larger communities. Just as soon as this condition is reached, the drain of population from the farm will decrease. .  If the economic losses due to bad  roads separating the farmers    from  his market that of cost of tranporta-  tion is most important.    A comparison of the load one horse can haul  andgood   and   bad   roads,   rospective  ly,   shows  that,   on  a  muddy  earth  road, the amount varies from nothing  to   a   maximum   of   8 00   lbs:   on   a  smooth dry earth  road, from  1,000  to 2,000 lbs: on a gravel road in bad  condition from 1,000 to 1,600 lbs: on  a gravel road in good condition about  3,300 lbs: on a macadam road from  2,000 to 5.OO0 lbs: and on a brick or  concrete  road,  from  5,000  to  8,000  lbs:     In 1906, the bureau of statistics of agriculture, from about 2,800  county reports,  deduced an overage  cost  of 22.7 cents  for  hauling one  ton   over, one  mile  of  unimproved  roads.  The farmer served by poor roads  Is forced to market his crops, not  when prices are highest, but when  the'roads are passable. : Moreover  the high cost, of haulage imposes a  heavy additional handicap in competition.  Good roads not only enhance the  value-of land bordering on them, by  rendering marketts more". accessible  but also benefit the markets themselves . through extension of the radius of supply.

He cites the follou-  ing:  Frst���������American and naval military, strength, although relatively  small, is of first-class quality. In  six months or a year the United States could raise an arnfy of almost  any size.  Second���������The danger of an Anglo-  American controversary over contraband policy would automatically disappear if the United States entered  the war.  Third���������Mr' Wilson would no longer frown on floating loans for any  belligerent poAvers, and the resources of the United States would be at  the disposal of the Allies.  Fourth���������If America came in the  native supply of munitions could be  increased ten-fold.  Fifth���������America and Britain would  show an identity of spirit preserving  harmony among the Allies during the  difficult period of peace negotiations.
