Chairman Hurry was in charge of  the May meeting of the Creston School  Board on Monday afternoon at the  ���������schoolhouse, with Trustees Mallandaine and Jackson also in attendance,  though little else than routine matters  were up for consideration.  The resignation . of Vice-Principal-  de Maesdo was read and after some  discussion was accepted. So far this  is the only retirement from the staff  . to come to hand and in a talk over  the teacher situation the trustees all  expressed pretty general satisfaction  with the work of the other teachers  during the term.  The assessment roll for ihe school  district was submitted to the meeting  but owing to the fact that it was incomplete, "being merely a statement of  the names of those owning property  in the school area together with the  , properties they own, the secretary was  inssructedto return the roll and have  the assessoe complete his work, particularly along the lines of showing the  areas each indiyidual owned and the  value it was assessed at.  There was considerable correspondence  relative  to  the   proposed new  high school.   The superintendent   of  education advised that while he  was  convinced the higher seat of learning  had' now become almost a necessity  and that hs would be pleased to make  recommends even for special consideration in the matter, he specially called attention to a clause in the act  specifying  that  such schools   could  only be assisted  when established in  i? organized   municipalities,  closing his  letter with the remark:   "By the way,  is not the time already ripe for the  establishment of such a rural municipality in your locality?"  A. Suliiyan, inspector of high schools;  wrote as follows: "At the present  time,6f course, nothing definite can  be done with regard to the erection of  a high school. After the results of  the Entrance Examinations ure known  yon will have something definite upon    which   to   base   your   claim   for  financial    support.   If   you   have   a.   . , .

There   was also a letter from the  superintendent of education in reply  to resolutions passed  at the trustees  conference in  April at which gathering the secretary was asked to write  the  department    urging   that   some  change be made in the   act so  that  financing  would  bo   less  strenuous.  The suggestion made was   that seeing  the   government   undertook the tax  collecting it was only fair that in case  they failed to take in sufficient funds  to run the schools that the trustees be  empowered to borrow money on the  security of  tho diutrict and not on  their personal note as at present.   The  education   authorities   advised there  would be- no "changes of any sort in  the regulations this year.  here of late.

There was also a good turnout of the  Wynndel ladies and considerable  work was accomplished to say nothing  of the sociable side of the gathering.  As yet there is little or no signs to  show that last week's touch of frost  has done any damage, even to the  early cherries. A few strawheriy  blossoms that were out suffered, of  course.

At the close of the lodge an informal  banquet   was   in   or^er,  after which  there was the usual %ound of speech-  making,   interspersed j with    several  musical   numbers. fYery timely  and  quite   eloquent addresses were made  by   visiting brothers   Whiteley  and  Rev. ~W.   K.   Thomson,    while    the  D.D.G.M, gave an equally appreciated  talk on the early history and f ouuding  of the Masonic order in British Columbia.   The musical selections were by  Bro.

Among the visitors were R.W. Bro.  Wilson, andBros. W. Cameron, Chas.  Libtie, F: Xtobsou^-IX M. Cowan, J. B.  Henderson, Rev. W. "EL Thompson,  all of Cranbrook; W. Young, Sirdar;  Rev. J. S. Mahood, Queen's Bay, and  W. J. Whiteley, Vancouver.  During the afternoon the visitors  were treated to a motor drive through  the Valley and returned Thursday  highly pleased with the all round hospitality dispensed then: during thi ir  stay, and with a cordial inv tation to  the Creston craftsmen to return the  visit at any time, and with any number, to give the. divisional city brethren an opportunity to return the  compliment.  The only regrets of the yisit were  expressed by Messrs. Cowan and  Thomson.

Capt. Ashley Cooper returned from  Work Point Barracks, Victoria on  Wednesday.  A carload of strawberry cups for  the Co-Operative Fruit Growers Association arrived here on Tuesday.  The meeting of the Alice Siding-  Wynndei ladies aid to the soldiers at  the front held jn the schoolhouse on  Saturday last was, according to the  president, Mrs. W. A. Pease, the best  attended and most successful, both  financially and socially, that the society has ever had. What struck all  outside visitors was the beauty of the  jjlace. Everyone was loud ih their  praise of the culinary art of the hostesses, Mesdames Duncan and Bathie.  The sum of t$2 was. raised, which will  be devoted to Red Cross purposes.  dress  The Erickson section poultry honors  for the year to date would seem to belong to. G.

Up to Tuesday night he had successfully negotiated exactly 20 settings by  the under-the-hen incubation and his  average   is a shade better  than   ten  birds from each batch of twelve eggs  ���������202 chicks from 240 eggs to be precise.   The eggs used were all from his  own flock of 24 purebted Rhode Island  Reds though, of course, some of the  neighbors' cluckers had to   be recruited for the work of hatching.    Of the  entire lot he lost none by death though  six succumbed through being trampled on by the mother hens.   The first  brood saw the light of day on  March  19th,  and from appearances will be  prime two pound broilers before they  are three months old.

The Hercules has  been chartered by J. S. Deschamps to  handle the logs cut at Sirdar.  3. S, Deschamps was in our vicinity  Monday and Tuesday.  Mesdames Dennes, Loasby and  Swanson were Creston callers on  Tuesday.  Mr.  and  Mrs.    P.   Oherbo   visited  Recruits Meeting  The none too pleasant intelligence  that Canada's recruiting for the present European war- is giving the  militia authorities cause : for grave  alarm owing to the increasing scarcity  of men voluntarily offering foi overseas service, was brought close home  to the residents of the Valley at a  public meeting, for the purpose of  speeding up recruiting in these parts,  which was held in the Auditorium on  Tuesday aight.  This particular effort was to secure  men for the 211th Battalion (American  Legion), and was addressed by Lieut.  Basil Aylmer. who went overseas with  the First Canadian Contingent,  and who is home on four months  leave, to recuperate from a partial  brerkdown after going through the  Ypres, Festaubert, Gravenchy, and  other fighting in France, and also  by Lieut. Jones, one of the recruiting  offieei-3 for B.C. for this corps.  In his own offhand, homemade way  Lieut. Aylmer related  many stirring  incidents in connection with the cam -  paigning in France,  showing that in  every   clash    with " the^  enemy   the  Canadian   troops   had  demonstrated  their worth  as fighters,  in some instances capturing positions that tin*  English regulars had previously given  up as untakable.   On account of this  dash and daring the Canadian troops  were  particularly wanted, and every  available man will be required.   The  Germans are far from  beaten  and  in  his opinion were good for at least au-  other   two  years   of   fighting.    Con-  I scription in England corroborated this  \ conclusion     unmistakably.     Briefly,  but iuterestingly, he dealt with the  methods of warfare���������curtain  of   fire,  gas attacks, etc���������and had on display  several   souvenirs   of the battlefield.  Incidentally he had some timely observations as to how and what- line of  "tobaccos to send to the  boys already  overseas..  Lieut. Jone's talk was quite brief.  He outlined the why and wherefore of  the 2llth, pointing out the advantages  of serving in the corps, ono of whieh  that there were four battalions being  recruited and that they would go  overseas and into action as a brigade  and not be split up into smaller units  to fill up gaps in other battalions. In  that way recruits would be sure of always being together.  The meeting was presided over by  R. S. Bevan, who also did yoetnan  service in motoring the two officers  to the different points in the Valley  and putting thein in touch with pos-  for their unseemly hilarity. The  visitors naturally feel like "squaring"  thmeselves with the disturbed individual, whose identity we have  just been advised they may learn from  Postmaster Henderson.

By now Mary had herself well in  hand again vastly ashamed of the  short period of self betrayal caused by  the official's artifice against hor heart.

The     large     restaurants,     brilliantly  lighted at night, and resounding with  the music of orchestras were almost  empty.   Occasionally a few boulevard-  iers strolled in to take places at the  tables, but rarely to dine there. At Vienna on a day when the fall' of krone  was particularly accentuated    I    was  ahle to hear the lamentations of the  public at the pay desks    of    various  banks   and  the phrase  constantly recurred:    'Germany    has  deceived us,  Germany has lied to us.'  'The  constant  news    of    victories  spread by the Wolff Agency have ���������a������  longer the desired effect upon the Aus-  train people. I heard the following remarks made by a high court official:  'If our armies were not so Inextricably  tied to the German armies "we should  have made separate peace long ago.*  "Austria has in store for the Kaiser  more than one surprise. For the moment, however, the Germans dominate  the country "and nothing more astonishes the 'Germanizers' .in Austria  than to find that their allies detest  them almost as much as their enemies."

"Did you tell old Gilder?" he asked.  "Mary shook her head in negation.  "What would be the use?"  she  reminded  him.    "I  had  no   proof.    No  one would believe me."  "They'd believe this. Why, this letter sets you clear. If old Glider should  see this letter, there's nothing he  wouldn't do to make amends to you.  He's a square guy himself, if it comes  to that, even if he was hard on you.  Why, this letter wipes out everything."

The shades on the corridor  windows here will be up, and Garson  will see them taken in.. The fact of  their being there will set his imagination to working overtime, all right."  Burke reflected for a moment, and  then issued the final directions for the  execution of his latest plot.  "When you get the buzzer from me,  you have young Gilder and the Turner  woman sent in. Then, after a while,  you'll get another buzzer. When you  hear tliat, come right in here, and tell  me that the gang has squealed. I'll do  the rest. Bring Garson here in just  five minutes.

"Don't trust the cold to kill them,"  warns the North Carolina Bulletin.  ���������'Don't, assume that they are dead  when you find them lying on floors or  window sills in unusued rooms. They  are playing possum, and will recover  when the temperature rises. Clean  up the house and give special attention to every out-of-the-way place  where flies may lurk. Make sure that  there is nothing left which may harbqr  their eggs."  If you don't adopt this strategy, and  start now, here is what you may be up  against, according to the computation  of experts:  A  female   fly   surviving  the   winter  may b.e expected to begin laying eggs  in April.    Her progeny will begin lay- j  ing  in  May.    Their progeny   will   he  laying by June 1.   We may reckon on  live crops by the first of October.   The  first crop alone is big enough, but succeeding generations quickly run far beyond the grasp of the human imagination.     If all the eggs hatched and developed into mature flies, the offspring  of that one fly would amount, by Oct.  1, to the appalling number of 131,220,-  000,000,000,000,000.  That number of flies, it is said, if  caught and pressed compactly together, would occupy a space of 250,000  cubic feet. That is to say, they would  probably fill solidly, from cellar to attic, about ten ordinary houses.  Of course, the eggs don't all hatch,  and the little larvae and pupae don't,  all grow up, arid the adult flies don't  all carry out this theoretical laying  program. K they did, all other Borms  of-life in the world would soon bo buried under an overwhelming avalanche  of files, and all the foodstuff in the  world would he devoured hy them. But  the facts aro impressive enough within   this  mathematical   nightmare.  The moral is plain. Swat the first  flies, and you'll have only tens to kill  instead of'tons of thousands.  ��������� ���������__ ._  pay for the  best and purest Soap in the world  -^Sunlight.

Ire  Mothers Will Find  Nothing so  Speedily and Reliable as Old  Time "Nerviline"  It's really a shaine to upset a young  child's stomach. by internal dosing,  when external treatment will so  promptly break up a cold.  When your boy comes in after play  with his feet soaking wet. his throat  hoarse and sore, his little chest tight  aud congested, just apply Nerviline.  Give������him a vigorous rubbing over his  throat, and put lots of Nerviline on  his chest and rub it right in. To make  Nerviline penetrate more quickly  cover his chest and throat with a hot  flannel bandage. This treatment  WON'T fail. Your boy will be feeling better in half an horn*, and you'  will have the satisfaction of knowing  you have*- warded off perhaps, a cold,  or grippe, or illness that might have  laid him up.  Nerviline is mighty good for preventing colds and for breaking up a  bad one, too. For general family use  it cures all sorts of external aches  and pains���������you simply can't beat it.  Try it for earache, toothache, neuralgia, sciatica, lame back, rheumatism,  or lumbago. Wherever there is congestion, inflammation or pain in the  joints' or muscles, Nerviline will cvre  mighty quick. The large 50c family  size bottle is so economical, so useful, it should be in every home. Tliere  is also a small 25c size. Dealers anywhere sell Nerviline.

The Kootenaian  understands,   with  regret, that certain Liberal gentlemen  residing in  the Creston Valley  have !  got the idea  into   their  noddles that  this   paper has been   manufacturing  deliberate falsehoods about  the  state  of health of John Keen,  the   Liberal  candidate in this  riding, with a  view  to injuring his candidature.    The  belief on the part of the Liberal  gentlemen   aforesaid  is   perhaps   due   to a  paragraph   published   about   two    or  three weeks ago and which stated that  Mr. Keen had gone on the sick list, on  account of trouble with asthma.

John  however,   camped "pretty   closely   at  home  for a  week or  more,  avoiding  going out at that time, apparently because   of   a   prevalent   wet   and cold  spell  of weather having made  it safer  to take no  chances.

He was out   again  ���������luring the rlue days of  last   week, as  chipper as ever, but is apparently taking   no   risks   during   the     wet   and  gloomy days that prevail this  week.  There is really no need of the Creston  Grits to get so excited about the state  of John's health.    With a. campaign  tocmiog up  and   already  in the foreground, John is tttking-no chances on  having his talking   apparatus  put  on  the   hike.     As   for  The   Kootenaian  spreading false reports a* to  the state  of his he-Uth with a view   to  injuring  - his chances of election   as the  Liberal.  candidate, Mr. Keen would be the very  Hi-st to ridicule any such a notion.  The  above   frank   statement    of  the   situation,   as    it    affects   Mr.  Keen's    phy stent     tit ness    for    the  approaching   campaign,     will    be  read with satisfaction   by   all   the  worth-while citizens.    There  is no  arguing the point thai their candidate's health has given local Liberals   more   than   a   little   concern.  The   Kootenaian* s     cbaracterestic  assurance that   Mr.   Keen   is  conserving his energies  for   the  fight  will eliminate this   uneasiness  and  at   the same   time   give   the   Conservatives   no   chance    to   underestimate the manner and   measure  of the man their candidate   has   to  reckon with.

Agricultural Credits Act.  The act is about the most timely  bit of legislating the local government has attempted and if it is  given a thorough businesslike, non-  partizan operation is bound to do  even greater things for the industry-  it aims to foster than many of its  fondest admirers hope for.  If, however, the Bowser (or the  Brewster) administration see in the  legislation the making of another  dependable cog in the "machine,"  and are calculating to operate it as  seemeth best to party expediency,  it were far better the measure had  been "born to blush unseen and  waste its sweetness on the desert  air.  The   necessity   of   assistance   to  agriculture has long been recognized.    This   B.C.     cheap-money-for-  farmers  act fills  the bill tolerably  well.    A safe,  sane  and impartial  handling of it will redound to the  credit of those entrusted with   its  operation,   while   any  attempt   to  manipulate it for party   advantage  will be a   disgrace  to  any   elective  institution and productive of  more  disastrous consequences than somo  present day public men seem willing  to concede.

British Columbia's agricultural  credits act went into force on April  26th. Mr. A. Lucas, a member of the  investigating commission, has. summarized the act as follows:  "As a result of the investigation  and report of the royal commission on  agriculture, the government of British  Columbia during the 1915season-introduced, and passed a bill providing for  the establishment of an agricultural  credit commission consisting of a  superintendent and two directors appointed by the lieutenant-governor in  council���������the deputy minister of finance  and the deputy minister of agriculture  being ex-offlcio directors���������thus forming a board of five members.  "The two directors appointed by the  lieutenant-governor must be men who  have been engaged in farming in this  province. The act authorizes the  commission to borrow up to $15,000,  000, as and when the sum is required,  and to loan to those engaged in the  agricultural industry in this province.

The due  payment of all securities, both as to  principal and interest issued by the  commission and sold through the department of finance, shall be unconditionally guaranteed by the crown in  the right of the province of British  Columbia.  '���������The commission shall establish a  department of appraisal and valuation,  .and may from time to time makerules  and regulations, not inconsistent with  the act, relating to such matters as  the respective duties of the employees  of the commission, the fees payable by  borrowers under the provision of the  act, the conditions that may be imposed in regard to loans and respect-  ingthe making of adyances in instalments corresponding to the progress  of the work of improvement, the rules  of good husbandry, etc., and all such  rules and regulations, when confirmed  by order in council, and when published in the British Columbia Gazette,  shall have the same force as if they  were embodied in the act.  "The commission may accept as  security for loans, first mortgages upon agricultural land in British Columbia free from all incumbrances other  than interests vested in the crown.  No loan will be" accepted for a less  amount than $250, or for a greater  amount than $10,000, and no loan will  be accepted for. an amount exceeding  60 pei- cent, of the appraised value of  the land offered as security, calculated  on the basis of value and productiveness when the improvements in respect of which the loan is required  shall have been effected. The commission may advance by proportionate  instalments as the work progresses.  "Loans may be made for the following purposes: (a) The acquiring of  land for agricultural purpose and the  satisfaction of incumbrances .on land  used for such purpose; (b) The clearing, draining, dyking, or irrigation  works; (c) The erection of farm buildings; (d) The purchase of livestock,  machinery, fertilizers, etc.; (e) Discharging liabilities incurred for the  improvement and development of land  used for agricultural purposes and any  purpose that, in the -judgment of the  commission, is calculated to increase  laud productiveness, and to associations organized under the agricultural  associations act, with the approval of  the lioutenant-govornor-in-coimeil.  "Before granting any loan tho commission shall ascertain that the loan is  justified on the following grounds:  "(������.) The value of the security offered, estimated on the basis of agricultural productiveness;  "(b) The desirability of the proposed  loan for any of the purposes described  abovo;  ."(e) The ability of tho borrower to  make a fair living iu*' hinibtilf and his  family from tho farming of his land  when improved as proposed by means  of the loan applied for, and after hay-  lug paid interois and amortization  charges;  "(d) That the granting of the proposed, loan for the specified purpose  ...; n   :., iu,. ,,!..r���������    <��������� j ������    ���������  ...*.,     ...    ....      ..|..������ ......    ...     v.j.

The rate of interest -shall not exceed 1  percent, more than tbe  intercut paid  by the commission en the bonds issued  to secure the funds. The combined  charge of interest and principal shall  be payable half-yearly, each instalment being equal.  "The commission may make short-  date loans not exceeding $2,000 to an  individual or $10,000 to an association,  for a period to be determined in each  case in the discretion of the commission not less than three years, and not  to exceed ten years. Short-date loans  may be made on such terms as to repayment as the commission deem fit,  the interest being the same as on longdate loans.  "The commission may make single-  season loans, repayable within twelve  months from the date of application.  Such loans shall not exceed $2,000 to  any one person or $ jO.OOO to any association, and may be repaid at any  time, and additional loans may be  secured under the provisions of the  act.  "The money borrowed mav be repaid to the commission in full or in  part on any interest-due date, in such  sums of $25 or a multiple of $25, in reduction of the mortgage debt, and  from that date interest shall cease on  the amount so paid.  "The principle underlying the act  is wholly constructive, the loans being  calculated to supplement the industry  and ability of the farmer, and while  the provisions of the act apply directly  to those already on the land and  operating farms, it also provides  facilities for the beginners: A man  without capital who is able and -willing to work may start on a raw farm  and receive adyances as his work of  making a farm progresses.

PRODUCTION    INCREASES   600%   IN    ONE   DECADE  Last Year the  Province   Raised  More  Cereals Than the Total  Production of All Canada in 1900, According to the  Latest Government Figures  862,000  raised  cereals.  ���������sasKarenewan   in  bushels per acre;  In 11*05'the province of Saskatchewan produced 46,612,136 bushels of  grain���������wheat, oats, barley, and flax  ���������from *an area under crop of 1,638,-  281 ae������es. Ten years later the same  province produced, according to the  latest Dominion government figures,  the same crops to an extent of 334,-  836,000. bushels from an area of 10,-  acres. In 1915 Saskatchewan  104,000,000 bushels of these  .more  than  the  total  produc-  Xl~.~.      ~JJ     ~0?      ft r. ..-. .1 r.      J������       -1  C'lt't        1  tiuu   vl   tx.li   ^diinuu  lit.   xvvxj.  During one decade the crop production of Saskatchewan, of these  four staples alone, increased over  600 per cent., while the area under  crop to these cereals increased something over 500 per cent. And this  covers only one branch of Saskatchewan's farming operations.  When : reference is made to the  great fertility of Western* Canada it  is sometimes met by the argument  that as the country becomes older  the fertility will greatly decrease, as  has been the case in so many other  countries. It should be remembered  that the soil of Western Canada is  not the soil of the east. Prof. Shaw,  one of the best known agronomists of  the United States, after making an exhaustive   study    of   soil    qualities of  \JT**f +*-\***r*      r'n tin r"l*\      ��������� <��������� *** i #-l * ...  VV CCifClll   . VUUUUOj      tOtti-lX. *>  "One acre of average soil in the  Canadian West is wor,th more than  20 acres of average soil aloftg the  Atlantic seaboard. The man who  tills the former can grow 20 successive crops without much diminution  in the yields; whereas, the person  who tills the latter, in order to grow  a single remunerative crop, must pay  the vendor of fertilizers half as much  ior materials to* fertilize an acre as  would buy an acre in the Canadian  West."  But let us not try to prove the  point by theories.    Here are facts:  In 1905 the wheat crop of Saskatchewan averaged 23.09 bushels per acre.  In 1915 it averaged 28-54 bushels per  acre.  - The oat crop of  1905 averaged 42.70  in  1915, 53.67  bushels per acre.  Barley, 1*905, 27.11 bushels per acre;  1S15,   36.83   bushels   per  acre.  Flax, 1905, 15.71 bushels per acre;  1915, 13.00 bushels per acre.  It will be noted that, except for  flax, 1915 shows a substantial increase  per acre over 1905, and this notwithstanding the fact that the 1905 crop  was one of the heaviest ever reaped in  Saskatchewan.  It is not contended that the permanent prosperity of Saskatchewan  is"to be built upon grain raising. The  most fertile soil in the world can be  exhausted if the process is continued  long enough. But, as has already been  said, grain raising covers only one  branch of Saskatchewan's farming operations. Look at the live stock statistics:  In 1906 tehre were 240,566 horses  in Saskatchewan. Now there are 667,-  443. In the same period the milch  cows in the province have increased  from 122,618 to 348,540. and other  cattle from 360,236 to 573,021. Sheep  have increased from 112,290 to 192,-  014, and swine from 113,916 to 329,-  246.  In 1907 there were seven cheese  factories and creameries In Saskatchewan. They produced 15,000 pounds  of cheese worth $.1,950 and 132,803  pounds of butter worth $36,599. Returns for 1915 have not yet all been recorded, but the 23 creameries which  have reported produced 3,831,300  pounds of butter valued at $1,059,443.  They produced ice creum und buttermilk to a value of $379.153���������more  than 10 times the total value of their  butter production only eight years  ago. Moreover, they have established a reputation for Saskatchewan  butter on the market, which has resulted in a demand that is practically  Inexhaustible, in 1915 f>2 carloads  of butter were shipped out of tho  province, and the Industry is just in  Its infancy.  These figures are sufficient to  prove that Saskatchewan's prosperity is a very real fact, and that It  Is purl, and "parcel of the agricultural  development of tho province. If. is  true that Saskatchewan | has othor  inrluRfrlcs which have contributed to  the general prosperity, but it will be  found thill, thoy are closely related  to agriculture, nnd (lie success of  tho farmer has made their success  possible, while at the same time  they have contributed to lhe famiur's  prosperity hy enlarging his homo  market or providing his necessities.  For Instance, the province has- an  annual lumber cut of approximately  2.'i(������,O(i0,(H/(J U-ol. This output a fiords.  a valuable l'ii"'il source' of supply lo  tho farmer, while at" the sumo time  the men and teams engaged I" tho  Industry consume his flour, oals,  hntlor, ft'rgi-. milk, vogelablo-i, -ment  find   h������y  minerals, mainly coal, whicli is  largely consumed by settlers in the  district in which it is mined. Even  manufacturing has made a start in  the province, and now distributes  wages amounting to over $2,000,000  yearly and produces finished products  valued at over six .millions.  Railway development has been  closely associated with agricultural  development. Steam railway lines  in Saskatchewan have increased from  2,081 miles in 190S to over 5,000 miles  at the present time. With railway  development have come cities, towns,  and villages, supporting a large  population every one of whom is  directly or indirectly "associated with  the agricultural interest of the  country, and shares in the general  prosperity due to the agricultural development.  Remarkable as has been the progress of Saskatchewan during the  last decade, there is every reason to  believe "that the province is now only  on the threshold of its prosperity.  The disadvantages of pioneer days,  with theii' lack of transportation,  telephone service, good roads, schools,  churches and markets, have been  largely swept away. Years of experimentation, both by individuals,  corporations, and governments, have  added enormously to the agricultural  knowledge of the country, and now  any settler with an earnest desire to  learn can quickly acquire the information necessary to success. Agriculture in Saskatchewan is no longer   an   experiment.     Both   in   quality  n������. tt       f...n^ + Z b-rr      ���������!..> ������-i*..%.3������.*.J-f. *. J?-     xt. .  cixiu.

And all this has been  accomplished with 11,000,000 acres  under crop out of a total of 93,000,-  000 acres in the province, suitable  for agricultural purposes.  Pay Liberal Wages and Provide Home  Comforts  Mr. Wm. D. Flatt, in a very interesting letter to the Breeders' Gazette,  takes up the help question for the farmer and tells how he thinks it can be  solved.    He says:  "Before laying my pen down I must  make one remark that applies to this  North American continent. We require more farmers, more farm help,  more girls suitable for farmers' wives,  and more domestic help. If the farmers of this continent will do as Great  Britain has done, provide married  men with homes on farms, assist thern  to live cheaply by giving them milk,  potatoes, beef, pork, and eggs at reasonable prices, they will produce families from whieh will come boys who  know how to farm and girls who can  help the boys make a success.

Let us suggest in this connection  that it will pay well for the farmer  to give good men liberal wages and  good, comfortable home conditions.  Then, besides, men should get rid of  the notion of drifting around from  place to place. When they strike a  good man they should stay by him as  long as possible.  a m%As   ma'B'Mm -jf-o-fw^-aw������������������������������������**  sa  - *s B������ ta Baea &    H B3x "���������" E*S BL"t9      jH   * B   H D  B  jp* &** -a wv&m?****, &*>. ������.

The above caption is the title of a  novel, Written by Herbert Quick  which- attempts to awaken the rural  communities to the antiquated courses  of study in the rural schools and to  point the way to the kind of schools  that should be provided for the boys  and girls in the country. The book  also sets forth the difficulties met  when a teacher or anyone else attempts to change the courses of study-  in our country schools.

Sense," from which we quote  lows:  "Without horse sense there's a poor  show for making a real money success of any kind. Without that faculty, otherwise called 'business ability,' industry, capital, credit, and even  a thorough knowledge of the most approved scientic methods of agriculture, all will be of little avail. To  qualify as a business farmer a man  must be able to shape his work and  change his plans according to changing weather, shifting markets, and  up-and-down business conditions. He  must he able to decide whether he can  best dispose of his crop by feeding,  or by selling on the market. In selling live stock or grain, the farmer  must know enough of the actual value of his product to know when the  local buyers are offering him a fair  price.  "It is not enough to grow a good  crop, or even to grow a good crop at  a low cost. To make the big crop a  business success, it must be disposed  of as efficiently as it Is grown���������must  be so graded and packed as to moot  market standards, and so marketed aa  to bring the farmer the highest current prices."  In other words, managerial ability  is a primary requirement of the successful fanner. As a rule, the farmer  of today has a very practical and efficient idea of how to produce the crops.  Through liis experience, reading ami  observation ho has .acquired a very  considerable store of knowledge regarding the host methods of cropping  and feeding. Marketing rather than  production is his perplexing problem  nnd until that prime requisite, home  sense or business ability, Is jollied  with the reftults of observation and  experience, it will not ho solved.  tion of  d-l Q      -f /">"** YY"������      -������������������       - -      .....       .-.....������.       ...       ......      . -    ...  avj      xv/a ill      VI.

We have long realized that the  country schools are not, on the whole,  serving their districts*with the greatest efficiency. The courses offered by  many of these institutions are obsolete and should be revised to meet  the requirements of the ideals and  standards of the present century.  There is no good reason why so many  of the country schools should be as  mum as an oyster upon the subject of  agriculture. So far as they tire concerned, you might think there is no  such occupation as farming. We  would not belittle the fundamentals  in our. educational system, but these  would not be impaired in the least by  incorporating in the courses of the  country schools a few subjects pei*T  taining to agriculture. If done in the  right way, the agricultural subjects  would aid materially in teaching the  fundamentals, as every boy and girl  in the country has a knowledge of the  things of the farm which can be readily used for illustrations and examples.  Mr. Quick points out. the injustice  done the boys and girls of the rural  schools by not having their courses of  study better adapted to their needs.  We share in this opinion and hope the  time is not far distant when those who  are in direct charge of the country  schools will see their duty and then  have the  cournye to do it.  Palace Windows Are Broken  Furious Rioting  A lady who has resided in Berlin  all her life has just reached Manchester. Interviewed by a representative  of the Daily News, she stated that the  people in thiscountry cannot have the  slightest conception of the life of the  people in the German capital.  "Only a fortnight ago," she said, "I  saw the Kaiser. He is quite a different  man from what he was. He looks just  an old broken-down man. His cheeks  are fallen, he is deathly pale, and his  hair is quite grey. Although the Action that he is suffering only from  severe cold is carefully kept up, it is  ,vsnerall,r known tha* the Kaiser is suffering from cancer in the throat. He  now lives at Potsdam when not at one  or the other fronts���������or, rather, reported to be there. The reason for his  avoidance of Berlin will be quite obvious when I explain that the mobs  have broken almost every window in  the Palace there."  There were sinister rumors as to  what happened to the crowd guilty of  this enormity���������of people being shot  down indiscriminately���������but she had  been unable to test their accuracy, as  now even regular German residents  were not allowed free course in  the streets.  "Rioting is now," she continued, "of  daily occurrence, the people especially  resenting the fact that they are not  allowed now to purchase more than a  quarter of a pound of butter or fat at  once.  "The Kaiser is now never cheered.  When he passes through Berlin it is  in a closed motor, preceded and follow-.  . ed by other motors filled with soldiers  (aud "officials armed to the teeth.  "So far as business is concerned,  Berlin is a dead city. Almost all the  wholesale houses are permanently  closed. The others are only open two  days per week, and must get a permit before they sell any goods, and  the officials see that nothing is allowed to go out likely to be of service to  them. The price of everything has  gone up terribly," she continued.  One of the most significant changes  she had noticed was in relation to tne  munition works, which formerly ran  day and night, but now only .worked irregularly: Employees questioned as xo  the cause of this were unanimous that  there was a snortage of material.  'This," she remarked, "is beginning  to tell on the people, who are becoming  more and more depressed as time  passes. In Berlin the people openly  clamor for peace. I have heard the cry  frequently in the city, 'For God's sake  give us peace at any cost.' People  allowed to enter Berlin from other districts say the same thing is observable  elsewhere.  Reports of rioting in England are  circulated from time to time. Such  were the reports circulated, that when  she reached this country she was  amazed.     She   expected   to   find   the  Great Britain's absolute supremacy  of the seas is beyond question;    and  the superiority of the allies  in men,  money and munitions  is    not  to "be  challenged.  "Lord  Northciiffe declares  that in his six visits to the front lsa  has .always been struck by the splendid health,    excellent equipment aad  absolute  confidence  of    the    French,  soldier.   He was also impressed by the  immense number of men in reserve,  covering  miles  and  miles of ground  and  by   the   quantities   of  munitions  "deposited  everywhere.    In    only one  department haa the German any pretention to superiority.    The Prince of  the Power of the Air, which is another name for His Satanic Majesty, is  getting too much of his own way to  what    the . Kaiser    would    probably  now  call   "his   element."    While  the  wounds inflicted by   the German aircraft so far have been by comparison  with the damage done    generally   in  the   war,  mere  pin-pricks,  they  suggest an infinite capacity for mischief  when weather conditions    are favorable, and unless more vigorous action  is taken to challenge their aerial supremacy.     That   the   British   government and people are not blind to the  situation we know and much is being  done to beat the Hun   upon his own  ground, if we may so calf the circumambient air.    But we have to "get a  move on" and possibly the pin pricks  which are intensely irritating to the  British body and soul,    may tend to  accelerate our movement.    The Teutons are not having it all their own  way in the clouds by any means.   Italian   aeroplanes   killed  eight  hundred'  towns in ruins and the people either  starved  or enslaved.  "The great mass of the people now,"  added ihe lady, "despair of heating  England, and the soldiers who are sent  back wounded tell the. most harrowing  stories of shortage of. munitions and  food."

Through  mistaken  ideai*     of     economy     they   dragged  through teh mud more than half Ihe  year.    The    effect,    of    the  bad  road  was   disastrous.     YCung     peoplo. or  spirit   and   enterprise     left   the  community, going    to    cities or to other  states   to make  their homes.    Social  life    was    well-nigh    Impossible    because  farm    homes    wero  linked  together  only   by  hideous    depths    of  clinging  miry    clay.    Tho    roads    so  affected  those    who    lived    by them  and   travelled  them   that    the  whole  community took  on  a   tinge    of sadness    and  depression.    Then    thero  came  a   man    who    had  lived    In  u  region of good roads, a man of faith  and eiiihnsiasii'i.    lie began  with  the  road  drug to smoMh  up and  let the  water off  a  -stretch  of road.

The    whole    history    of the    war  shows   the potentiality of   aircraft in  warfare and the lesson is    that for  Great Britain the control of the air is  as  important    as the control of    the  sea.    lt means nothing less than the  creation of a second British navy to  rule    the winds as the first one does  the  waves.    Great Britain cannot afford to be,   and dare not be, inferior  to any other country in aerial power.  Our thanks  really  are  due    to    the  Kaiser for  gr-nng us  a valuable lesson and rul-ibing   it well in.   We must  not regard the cost of aerial squadrons as simply one of the burdens of  the present war.    It is rather a permanent investment and one that will  involve    permanent    expenditure   for  construction and maintenance.   In tho  present stage    of    aerial    navigation  aircraft of all kinds will tend to he-  come obsolete in even less timo than  do the battleships.   The Zeppelin and  aeroplane may   be as good the day it  is put into the scrap heap as the day  it was built, Just as many a fine warship has  had  to be  put on    tho retired list simply because    something  better has been devised.   It Is just tho  same    with    all    kinds of  Industrial  plants.    Machines are thrown out, not  because   they  have  lost  anything  of  their  original    efficiency,    but    they  cannot compete    with    machines    of  later invention    and    improved typo.  j For Great Britain tho best, and most  i up-to-date  of    aerial    war-craft    will  always bo just good enough and none  too good.    The    discarded    machines  may find now spheres of    usefulness  in the paths of peace.   It will bo passing strange if the immenso possibilities    in the way of aerial navigation  demonstrated hy the war do not result in a great utilization of dirigibles  and   aeroplanes   for commercial purposes.   They are not likely to compete  seriously with the railways and steamships for the heavy freight truffle, hut  special  fields    of usefulness can  certainly be found for them.���������Henry Dal-  by, in Montreal Star.
