It's still more wonclenil to  |l have the privilege of paying-a-  '   jain, again, and again.  When we heard of it coining  again, we immediately com-  ineiiced to think up the usual  bromidic excuses.

We thought of the Patriotic  Fund.  The Patriotic Fund means  just the difference between  want and comfort.  The Patriotic Fund that helps  the wife and mother while son  and husband are   fighting   our  battle.  The Patriotic Fund that gives  hope and cheer to that son or  husband, and enables him to  fight again and again and again  The Patriotic Fund that is  not charity, but'a voluntary offering by those who cannot  figlit to hell) those that can and  are fighting.  The Patriotic Fund that, with  all its criticisms, reaches out a  helping hand to the child, the  wife and the mother of the  boy in khaki, who.fights' for us  who stay at home.  And we decided.  We decided it was a privilege to pay.  We dicided it was our duty  to pay..,  We decided that if we did not  pay,, we would be slackers and  cowards.  ���������We decided that we would  pay just as much as we could,  even if we had to give up our  pipe, our cigar, our show.  And, we did pay.  Mr.Paul Taylor has resigned his  position as foreman of the plainer  millat the A. T. T.

The Ladies Aid met at the home  of Mrs. McKinnon on Wednesday afternoon. It was decided to hold a  pancake social at the home of Mrs.  MeMenemy to raise, funds for home  missionary work.

Miss Bell of Mt. ^ehman was the  guest of Mrs. Martin this week.  Opportunity For  Returned Soldiers  Both   the  United, Farmers  of  Alberta and' the Grain Growers' Asso-n  elation of Saskatchewan    intend    to.  use every  effort to secure' returned  soldiers for work    on the farms  of ���������  those two provinces during the coming season. What will be the attitude  of the returned men is not    known,  but it is said that those who contem-   -  plate taking up land themselves, but.  who hitherto,have known nothing a-  bout agriculture, will get an insight  into that industry if they elect to go'  laboring on the prairie farms  for a  season.      We think it is highly probable that an invitation will be extended to returned soldiers in' British Columbia to go to Saskatchewan  or   Alberta   to   help   out   with   this  year's   harvest.       Any  man , who   is  qualified to  drive a team  of  horses  will be able to earn $75 a mouth and  his   board,   while   wages,   not   much  smaller, will  bo paid  for absolutely  unskilled    labor.' . The    farmers    of  both provinces arc anxious to interest  the returned soldiers in. the gathering  of thc harvest.    Perhaps it is a selfish  desire from  one anglo  because  there'is such a shortago of labor, but  then the'farmers point out that the.  men will be well paid and can learn  the rudiments  of agriculture  which  should prove of benefit to those who  have determined to take up laud.

Tlie children or the school performed their parts in a most creditable  manner; special mention should be  made of the four little girls dancing  the Highland Fling, who captivated  the audience by the professional way  in "which they did the most difficult  step which was a. convincing testi _  mony of the painstaking character of  their  teacher Miss Till.  The auction' of a. most beautiful  three story fruit cake presented by-  Mrs. M. Tiergon and Mrs. Chas.

As might have been anticipated,  local news takes first place in the  re I" urns from the canvass. But the  fact ihat both city and country readers place display advertising in second place in their estimates of what  makes the paper valuable to them  may cause some surprise !o a few  newspaper makers. Classified advertising is rated third by city readers  and fifth by country readers, the lat-  t-?r placing a higher value upon market sad weather reports..

Wm. E. SCOTT, Dept. Minister.  Tokio, March 23.���������The Jiji Shim-  po in a powerful editorial today, says  ''The question of supplying ships  to America cannot be regarded as a  businss deal anw more than the dispatch of Japanese ships to the Mediterranean. So long as Japan is one  of the Allies, she should be ready and  willing to do so. It is Japan's duty  to furnish America with bottoms to  help the position of Japan. Sacrifices are unavoidable; talk of profits  is a sign of baseness." ���������  In conclusion the Jiji urges the  government to exercise the right to  regulate the charter rates and fece  selfish commercial interests to reanze  the situation and the national obligations, and cease talking of compensation.     .

All of the cereal grains purchased  for seed are obtained subject- to inspection as to definite standards of  quality for seed grades. Small premiums per bushel arc offered on car  lots which will grade for seed with  a limited dockage in cleaning. Relatively pure varieties are available  in the quantifies rortuir.edc.onIy in a  few items; hence the operations of  the Commission do not. interfere unduly with the business of seed men  who always handle named -varieties.  The seed surplus or requirements  of each province are estimated by  thc Seed Branch district, officers in  consultation with the Provincial Departments of Agriculture, and where  supplies are needed tho latter bodies  frequently place orders and assist in  tho distribution. Much of thc seed  handled by the Commission is, however, 'distributed through tho usual  channels of commerce for s: oil supplies. Municipal governing bodies,  agricultural societies, farmers' clubs  or groups of farmers fake advantage  of ordering in car' lots and thus  serve as a control on prices asked by  the   trade,  A1ITHUR PKAS. THEIR  VALUE  TO      TTEJE CADADSAN FAIllYSKK  This variety, stands today among  the field peas as the earliest in commerce that will give profitable yield.  There are earlier field varieties and  very early 'varieties among the garden sorts, but they "will not return,  when -grown for general purposes, a  commensurate profit on the labour  expended. It has held true, as it  does in practically all classes of grain  that the advance has been made at  a slight sacrifice in yield, but as  the Arthur matures some three or  ten days in advance of the. Golden  Vine and Prussian Blue varieties,  depending entirely on the district,  this slight loss is a negligible factor  in the parts of Canada where if the  Arthur variety were-not grown, it  would be practically impossible to  grow peas with cither satisfaction  or profit.  - The Arthur variety carries its  flowers in a cluster or '"crown" at  the end of the vines, thus differing in  habit from thc other varieties, Golden Vine and Prussian Blue which  bear their flowers distributed at  various points over the stems. It is  thought that this characteristic renders the Arthur variety somewhat  susceptible to injury in districts  where very dry heal prevails at thc  time of flowering. The results from  our southern prairie stations where  it gives a. slightly lower yield, especially at Loth bridge. Alia., fend  to confirm  this opinion.  This variety serves its best pin-  pose in the northern districts within the fifty-first and fifty fourth  parallels in Western Canada and all  the northern districts of -the. eastern  provinces extending up to the lil'fy-  iirst parallel. Small districts lying  within the defined territories, subject  to both late spring and early fall  frosts may find the Arthur variety  too late for their peculiar conditions.  It must be assumed that this variety is only suitable where its early  maturity offsets its slightly lower  yield. In the eastern provinces, in  many cases.it yields equally'- well  with the Golden Vine and Prussian  Blue varieties and, on account of  its superior color and qualify, fre-'  quently commands a higher price on  the markets. Tlie Golden Vine and  Prussian HI no varieties arc. however  old standard .sorts which give high  yields and wherever Ihe grower has  had success with oil her of these,-untroubled by (bo problem of maturity  we would not recommend him to  change for the Arthur, In the extreme southern parts of Alberta and  Saskatchewan, we would recommend  these  varieties  in  preference  to  the  e  the  earlier sort.  In peas,  of grain in  like in all (other classes  Canada, there is a keen  need for early, productive varieties.  Within certain limits thc problem of  securing the combination of earliness  with, a large yield can be solved by  planting breeders, and it is not too  much to expect that the Arthur'variety may some day be replaced with  an earlier maturing field sort that  will give an equally large yield. Until that time, the. Arthur, variety can  bo recommended universally in Canada to all farmers who find difficulty  in ripening field peas before frost or  who are anxious to grow a fairly prolific sort that will produce seed of  fine quality and high market value.  HANDV  TO HAVE  A DIG POLICEMAN  An injunction petition filed by the  Canadian "Western Natural Gas Company against the town of McLeod has  been recently granted by the Hon.  Mr. Justice Hyndman. Fifty dollars  damages are claimed and an injunction restraining the officers, servants  and agents to enter .or interefere  with the plant belonging to the company.  A policeman of MacLeod, weighing clcse to 350 pounds, calmly sat  on the valve box and defied any  member of the company to turn off  ihe gas of the town and enabled the  citizens to keep on using the gas till  the time , thak the injunction was  served. ;  The pressure in the city of Calgary gas mains been very low lately. If was found necessary to shut  off tho ������as in MacLeod on this account.  On February 20 the plaintiff requested- the defendant to .discontinue the use of gas in its'boilers.  The town fathers of MacLeod refused  and the gas company notified them  that at .12 o'clock February 2 1 they  would shut off the supply of gas to  the boilers. However, they were prevented from doing this, so the company secured and injunction.
