Although this is ideal growing  weather this sectiou will hardly be in  the strawberry shipping class till July  1st.

Some    years _ before,     Ellington  Senior, following (he fashion of most  men   who   make   money  on     n Targe  scale, had been minded to build himself a house.   Then he" had remembered that a time would come    when  George,   then  at   Cambridge,     would  also want a house, and he had decided to build one for .his  son as well  as one for himself. And being a man  of a prim and precise mind, a staunch  believer  in  mathematical  proportion,  he had caused the two new mansions  to  be built  exactly alike and    under  like  conditions of situation, arrangement, and aspect.   Each faced south:  each  had  similar garden, lawns, and  shrubberies; each was in imitation of  what is  commonly    known    as    the  Queen   Anne   style   of     architecture;  each   was   still,  at  the  end  of  a  decade,  of  a brand-new,  freshly swept  and   garnished   appearance.     Looked  at  from   thc  distance of half a mile  there was  nothing by which  to  differentiate one from the otlier; it was  only when  one had climbed  the top  of the gentle eminence from    which  they overlooked the town and Ellington's mills that one found    them    to  differ in one slight respect.   On the  entrance gates of the Ellington Senior   residence    appeared    the    name  Athcroft;  on those of the  Ellington  Tunior   house   thc     name     Oakcroft.  "Ellington  Senior conceived  this  trilling difference to bc a stroke of genii; s.  Hilda Tressingham, walking al  Ellington's side up tho. asphalted  carriage drive which led from the  entrance gates to the house, was  vividlv conscious of the intense newness of the place and of thc evidences  ot the money which had been laid  out upon il.

Until lately it was not known whether a disease-spreading mosquito coxtld  infect more than one person.  Recent  experiments of the public health service of the United States government  have proved  that an  infected malarial  mosquito   can  infect  several  persons   without   again   obtaining   bloid  from an original source of infection,  aud that an infected mosquito retains  her ability to infect with malaria for  at least 25 days.  Even'if a mosquito  empties her available supply of malarial parasites into one man, she may  infect a second man a  few hours  or  a   few   days   later   through     a     new-J  generation  qf  parasites.     This   ,is  a!  most     importajit     discovery,     for    it  shows    that    the    individual disease-  laden   insect  is   a   veritable  machine-  gun iu point of danger, and   -*it    emphasises   the   necessity   for   stamping  out the breeding places of the malarial  mosquito.

Some of our  farm boys'may be better suited for  occupations other than farming, but  those who are suited for farming  and wish to farm should -be given  encouragement to do so.  Boys on the farm arc too-often al  lowed to drift along with very little,  attention being paid to them. The  boy will be more likely to become a  willing worker if his interest is  aroused in the business side of his  work and he will gain ability to save  if- he is taught to spend thoughfully  arid wisely. These two factors, willingness to work arid ability to save,  aVe fundamental for future success.  Permit the boy to participate in the  practical business transactions of the  farm as the conditions allow. Let  him do some of thc buying and selling. When he has decided that hc  Avill bc a farmer, the father may be  gradually relieved from some of his  responsibilities through a partnership management.���������F.C.N, in Conservation. .

According to the Herald a group  of live ones have been' induced to  accept office in the Cranbrook  Agricultural Association, and that  these wideawake citizens are now  busy devising ways and means to  make the fall fair in that city, in  September, everything that an  exhibition in such a community  really should be.  One of their great desires is to  have as big a display as possible  of the products of the Creston  Valley, particularly in the fruit  and vegetable line���������and doubtless  in other lines as well, though as  yet there is no defiuite announcement to that eifeoi. ,  And it is to be hoped that any  and aii propositions of this sort  will have serious consideration by  those interested at this end, regardless of past unpleasantness on  this same score.

While, generally   speaking, THB  Review is a great  believer in the  doctrine that "the Lord helps those  who help   themselves,"   when one  remembers  that  in   1916  Canada  and   the   United   States   shipped  very   closo   to J),000,000 boxes of  apples to Great Britain,  and that  this year,  unless  th������ existing embargo ie raised,   not  a  bit  of this  fruit can be sent across the Atlantic  ���������and due to increased crops 1017  is liable to see a surplus of  an additional two  million  boxes���������it at  once   becomes   apparent   that the  task   of saving  tho   day   for the  orchardistn   is   altogether   out   of  proportion to the number of men  engaged iu  the industry, and the  limited  time  and  means at thoir  disposal.  After tho original announcement, the British Government  iuoiliuci' the- uiabftr&rt no :u. to permit flhipmcntn from Auairalia to  tho extent of 50 per cent, of tho  1010 imports from that source,  aiul it is protty gen orally expected  a Hiinilarly-gonorouH conoowuian  will bc made Canada in tho early  f������.ll  AH hoH.h of Hiiggt&tions nre being  put forward to help nave tho day.

Every year, the exports toll us,  cider is coming into greater demand for medicinal u&oa, among  other things having boon reoently  hcarolded as a groat preventive  nnd rorowlinl Rf-ymt for kidney  troubles. And, with all. the othor  western provinces "dry," the  genuine article in the cider lino is  moro and more called for.  Aecurcd an article mado undor  uniform conditions, from Crouton  quality fruit, it nhould surely bo  possible to got in touch with somo  dijslrilml.iiH house that would buy  the cider in quantities, taking  delivery in barrels, thus eliminating  4>Fill the cars full and thus reduce  the car shortage." That is the slogan  of traffic officials and operating departments of railways and. has become  the maiu objective of large shippers.  The iastoflBcial figures of the Department of Railways for Canada are those  of the deputy minister of railways in  the blue book for 1915. These extend  back to include the year 1907. Between the years 19d7 and J915, on the  railways of Canada, the increase in  tons of freight carried one mile was  51.1 per cent. But in that same period  the aggregate capacity of freight cars  (in tons) increased 181.4. per cent- and  the total number of freight cars in  that ������*ame time has increased from  105,540 to 201,690 or au increase of 91.1  per cent.  If these figures are correct, and there  is no reason to doubt them, it is hard  for the layman to understand why  there exists to-day a serious car  shorage. The capacity for hauling  freight has increased very nearly  double the tonnage to be hauled, or at  least the amount actually hauled.  But tho fact of the increase of tonnage  capacity has not solved thu problem  of why it in not hauled. To make this  matter more clear, that Is, the oar  shortage question, it is necessary to  analyze a little more closely the  carrying capacity of the railways.  In 11)07 thc average capacity of  freight cars was 27.6 tony, but the  average tonnage they actually carried  was only 15.4 tons. In 1010 tho average capacity of freight cars had Increased to 3JJ.4 tons but the average  tonnage carried fn each car was only  18.4 tons. Tho car capacity had increased between 1007 and 1015 an  nyorago of {*���������.& tono, but t.ho contontn  carriod in each car had IncroaHod only  throe tons. In percentages only 52  por cont of the capacity of oaoh car  was ntiliznd. To transportation companies and to shippers these figures  spoak vory loudly.  Taking thono figures into actual  transportation ccw.nwy th** <������������������������������  chiHlon Is something like thiH: Had  thc average load in 1015 boen 23.4  tons Instead of 18.4 tons tho namo  trallio would havo been hauled with  0,017,588 loss trains hauled one mile;  1,B07,70G leiiH car trlpas 20,800,535 loss  tow* of dead cur hauled ono mile.

In striving, to impress these facts on '  the public it is necessary to bear a few  facts only in mind:  The present heavy: volume of traffic  will no doubt continue as long as the  warlasts:  .Additional, ears ���������- and .locomotives  cannot be secui-ed in large number for  many, months,:... ,.._ .      ....

Cured by  Toning    the    Blood  Strengthening the  Nerves  It is the opinion of the best medical authorities, after long observation, that nervous diseases are more  common and more serious in 'die  spring than at any other time of the  year. Vital changes in the system,  after long winter months, may cause  much more trouble than th<5 familiar  spring weakness and weariness from  which most people suffer as thc result of indoor life, iri poorly ventilated and often overheated buildings.  Official records .prove that in April  and May neuralgia, St. Vitus dance,  epilepsy and other forms of nerve  troubles are at their worst, and that  then, more than any other time, a  blood-making, nerve-restoring tonic  is needed.  The antiquated custom of taking  purgatives in the spring is useless,  for thc system really needs strengthening, while purgatives only gallop  l'i rough the bowels, leaving you  weaker. Dr. Williams' Pink I'ills  are thc best medicine, for they actually make, the new, rich, red blood  that feeds the starved nerves, and  thus cure the many forms of nervous  disorders. They cure also.such other  forms of spring troubles as headaches, poor appetite, weakness in the  limbs, ;is well as remove unsightly  pimples and eruptions. In fact they  unfailingly bring ��������� new health and  strength to weak, tired and depressed  men, women and children.

This decision has been made  as a result of a meeting held in Windsor recently, when W.R.

It is planned lo enlist the  high school boys, retired farmers and others who havc  had experience in farm work.

City folk, who  iif normal  times  get at least    three  meals a day, rarely stop to think of  the part the farm plays in ministering to  their wants  and  their    comfort.  Rarely do bankers or men    of  affairs  give  serious  thought  to     the  farmer   apart    from the contribution  he annually makes    to    the    visible  wealth  of  the  community.     Middlemen   take  a  keener interest   in     the  food producer, but it is thc interest  of nicn who  hope   to     reap    where  cthers  have  sown.

Problems    of  labor;  transportation,    marketing facilities, and market prices, over which  thc farmer has no control, do .not enter into his calculations.   He    has'a  vague idea that Agricultural Departments take good care of thc farmer,'  and see to it that the road between  the farm and the town is paved not  only with   good intentions,  but also  with legislative enactments that make  It attractive for the farmer  to  farm  not    for    a    living  only,  but  for  a  profit;.

Victory Ovcr Wounds  The  Disabled  Soldiers'  Resurrection  to a New Life of Activity  Canada should be as proud of her  wounded soldiers' victory over their  wounds.as she is of the glorious  fights in which they fell. Their struggle up from the depths of disablement is often as hard, and even as  heroic, as their desperate defence of  Ypres or their dashing* capture of the  Vimy ridge.

Labor  ;has always been scarce in Western  jCanada with the result that it has  'often been able to demand wages out  ���������pf all proportion to its value on the j  land. It is scarcer today than ever it  .Iras' been in the history of the country, and the question arises: "What  5s going to be done to put a reasonable limit ou the wages of the hired  .man?"  ���������'!   If he is allowed to put up his services to auction, and close with the  ���������-highest bidder,  a  new  rate  of    pay  i-will be established that will not readily be relinquished, even when prices"!  bf grain and cattle have dropped to]  a normal figure. A dangerous precedent is liable to be set that will ..spell  ilie ruin of many of our farmers  in  the years to  come.  ���������'!���������_ There is the obvious solution that  farmers throughout Western  Canada  should get together aud fix a standard  wrage for  skilled  and    unskilled  labor respectively,  the figures  to be  based on the season of the year. But  this would need a! basis of co-operation  that does  not  exist among our  farmers,  unhappily,   or    many    evils  they are subject to would speedily be  banished.  ��������� Let us look at the question from  ihe hired man's point of view. Per  haps in so doing we may find the  answrer, remembering that today's  hired man is tomorrow's hired man's  employer.  ! In the majority of cases, the farm  laborer is not in Western Canada  merely for a wage. He has his own  ambitions, fortunately for the coun-  tiy, which probably centre on a  homestead which he means to takc up  one day, wdien he has capital enough.

This law prohibits the  setting out of fires except when certain specified precautious are taken,  and provides for tiie appointment of  the reeve as chief fire guardian in  each rural municipality. All members  of-, the provincial police shall be fire  guardians, ex officio, under the hew  act.  Provision is made also for the ap-r  pointment of fire guardians in. utior  ganized areas.

Ahead of him are months of  rather irksome, and unquestionably  hard work the fruits of which, as he  sees it;-can Only be reckoned in dollars that will bring him nearer to his  own independence.  This sclf-centered--attitude is equally shared by the farmer, who sees in  the hired man a necessary piece of  human machinery, to whom so many  dollars  a month  must    be  paid    to  that the latter provision will pave  the. w7ay for co-operation with the  Dominion Forestry Branch, for the  better protection of areas immediately adjacent to forest reserves.

In hit* hands rests the great; decision,  It is with uo desire to. force his hand  \ji lo limit hi.; freedom of action lhat  tlic itowns and cities are combining  to co-operate as far as possible in  restoring the balance of labor.' The  towns and cities have, discovered  when loo laic how much the cause  of the Allies in this war depends on  the farmer.    It is in his _ power    to  wounded, returned "to' Canada, spent  ���������firree months in a convalescent hospital, and now earns double his former pay, having taken full advantage,  of the mechanical drawing and arithmetic classes carried on there. Writing to the hospital instructor, he  says:  "When I enlisted, I was earning  about ?3 a day at my trade. At present,' and since my discharge from  military service, I am, technically, a  better man alb around; I am able  mow to hold a job as foreman in a  machine shop, with more than twice  thc salary I was getting before. This  benefit to me is greatly due to your  practical information, and my only  regret is that I wasunable, after my  discharge, to continue instruction  with you as you had advised."  Not every man, of course, can  "double his pay." But one of the  most cheering facts proved by experience during thc war has been  'this���������that almost all the disabled  men, including thc very seriously  wounded, can bc equipped once more  with power to earn a good living.  And often, as Lord Shaughncssy  said thc other day, the occupations  and training provided by the Military  Hospitals system "reveal astonishing  talents which even the man himself  did not know he possessed."  A Long Way From '76  Anglo-Saxon Race Finding Common  Ground on the Defence  of Liberty  British-Americans have nursed ever since 7>> the linn belief that the.  American Revolution was in its basic  principles a just revolution. They  have been proud to remember that iu  that great r.I niggle George Washington, an Englishman, led a nation of  Anglo-Saxons into battle against the  tyranny of a German king of England. Out of thia feeling' there has  grown throughout the country a'linu-  founded belief^ that ultimately the.  destinies of the two groat Anglo-  Saxon r.ices would again unite at  some future day in the defence of  Home common cause. An American-  British alliance is one of the. foremost hopes of such prominent British-Americans  as���������Viscount     Bryce,  Now surely these relations between  the farmer and the hired man in a  country like ..Western Canada are absolutely wrong. Except in the case  of large farms, employing' a number  of hands, and with the result of the  year's work practically guaranteed,  the present system of wages gives  rise to conditions diametrically opposed to, the best interests of both  farmer and hired man.  In seventy-five cases out of-a hundred, better and more profitable relations might bc established between  the two, on thc following basis  Let the farmer pay the hired man  a minimum salary of say $30 a month  and a bonus ou thc crop. Instead of  treating the hired man as a necessary  evil, and as a kind of living*mortgage  ou thc harvesting of his wheat, put  him on a partnership basis, and give  him a quarter, a fifth, or a sixth  share in the farm, thc extent of thc  interest to be determined by the sixc  of thc crop, the length of his services on the land, and his degree of  capacity and experience. An agreement should be drawn up by a local  solicitor, so that the hired man will  know that his interests are properly  protected, and that he is actually part  owner in the forthcoming harvest,  and can collect his share thereof, as  soon as it is threshed.  Such an understanding should redound to tbe benefit of both parties.  It would give the hired man a much  more enviable position, ten times th.*  interest in his work, aud tho opportunity to make a substantial slake,  considerably in excess of accumulated wages, by his own labor and initiative. It would give thc farmer a  comrade as anxious as himself to  harvest his crops on the most profitable, basis, and it would ensure that  thc land itself paid the man'*' wage,  according to the yield, whieh would  seem the .right and proper basis of  reinuneratiou.  Sclf-Rcnunciation  T;ii France joffre played the. part of  a great man. lie was lor two years  the idol of his country, and admired  the world over, lie used to declare  th sit he eared lit lie about: men    who  the Dominion Forestry Branch, m  the neighborhood of forest reserves,  will greatly reduce the danger of  damage to the forest reserves  through fires coming in from the  outside. Such fires have been a fruitful source    of damage in the past.  Reports on all fires arc to be made  to thc Provincial Fire Commissioner,  avIio will be in general charge bf the  administration of the law,.  The act prohibits the. throwing  away of matches, cigars and cigarette stubs, etc., without extinguishing same. It provides also that citizens may be required to fight fires  which occur within 15 miles in wooded- districts, and 6 miles in prairie,  country.  Fire guardians arc given authority  to make arrests for violation of the  act.  ��������� Provision is' made also for the safe  disposal of debris resulting from the  construction of roads, trails, telegraph or telephone lines, and railways, or from the clearing of land  for other purposes.  The. new act is thoroughly progressive and its enforcement will unquestionably go far toward reducing the  forest and prairie fire losses in Saskatchewan.���������CL.

Thc mineral wealth    of Canada  is like that which  was found in  the  Ural mountains from which the grand  dukes iu Russia secured fabulous fortunes, and it would not be surprising  if the Rockies  arc not a portion  of  the   same   formation   and    connected  by' a dip below the sea. This is how  thc Marquis of Qucensbury, one    of  the  leading  authorities    on    mining  matters, spoke recently at Winnipeg  on his way from British Columbia to  England,   intending   to,  interest   capitalists   there   in   some    of   the     new  claims hc has'.staked in the. Canadian  West. The people of Canada, he declares, need have no. fear about   the  war debt, as the mineral wealth    of  British   Columbia  alone    could    takc  care of that and also of the debt of  Great  Britain.   Hc. has  travelled    in  every clime aud tongue and his eon-  elusion is that Canadians do not realize the. real value of their heritage  in  the  iimiter  of natural    ivm.>i.. >\ s.  Some of the  greatest mining   camps  thc world has over seen, he saj", will  bc seen there before the next decade  has  passed-.     He   has    secured     ten  square,   miles   of  mineral   country   on  Porchcr  Island, which   he    proposes  to olfer to' the home government   on  condition  tliat they  e.il.iblihh a   >iiml-  ter  there.   The  marquis  says  he    vs  surprised lhat more Canadians do not  Ko in for  lhb> brunch of study, <.;.->:c-  ially those, who have interest in geology.   Most   of   the   prospector:-   now  in the field, hc says, have, an eye for  aud h'i  wilderness as she withdraws. How  shall such a nation be dealt with tu  defeat?  The danger is , some    casual    recourse to. lex talionis.    The time is  not too far distant. Twhen ' reprisals  for  Louvain  could be  made in    the  lovely cities    of  the     Rhine.  ~   The  Drachenfels might pay for    the    A'c-P  molisiied castl-e;   of    Gpucy.   \ -Such;-:'-  vengeance would be -just,  but    irii**P  taken.     Cool-headed    justice    would  impose simply payment for    damage  inflicted,    and    indemnities    running.  over years, and    reminding    children  of the sins of their fathers would be  a  fair  more    exemplary    retribution '  than reprisals in kind.  If this view is correct, it has a  distinct bearing on the peace terms.  As a preliminary to negotiations,  Germany should be required to surrender Hamburg and Bremen. It is  only through possession of the great  custom houses of the empire that  there can bc any certainty of collecting the vast indemnities which  Germany will owe. The: custom  houses should be held until the guarantees for payment are adequate. It  v.'ould be an exemplary act if the  entente allies should commit thc estimate of 'indemnity to an impartial  tribunal, as The Hague court.
